“And god said, let us make man in our im­age, after our like­ness: and let them have do­min­ion over the fish of th­ese a, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cat­tle, and over­all the earth, and over ev­ery creep­ing thing that creep e th upon the earth .27 so God cre­ated man in his own im­age, in the im­age of god cre­ated he him; male and fe­male cre­ated he them. 28 And god blessed them, and god said unto them, be fruit­ful, and mul­ti­ply, and re­plen­ish the earth, and sub due it: and have do­min­ion over the fish of th­ese a, and over the fowl of the air, and over ev­ery liv­ing thing that move th upon the earth ”( gen. 1:26-28).

BELOVED, it has been the will of God to place man above ev­ery crea­ture. This He demon­strated at man’s cre­ation when He made him in the like­ness of h is Cre­ator un­like any other crea­ture be­fore him. Be­sides that, God made him His rep­re­sen­ta­tive on earth to con­trol, and have do­min­ion over ev­ery other crea­ture, and above all God com­manded other crea­tures to fear and serve man.

Even when that op­por­tu­nity was lost by man after his sin, God sac­ri­ficed His only Son Je­sus Christ to die for man in or­der to rec­on­cile him with his Cre­ator and got him repo­si­tioned for bless­ing of higher level. Je­sus, there­fore, be­came the Pro­pi­tia­tor that re­stored this bless­ing of higher level to man.

Jn 10:10b says, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abun­dantly.”

Je­sus came not only to pre­serve but also to im­part life, and com­mu­ni­cate it in af­flu­ent and en­dur­ing ex­u­ber­ance, which was the high level of life man was en­joy­ing be­fore the fall. So, the emer­gence of Je­sus Christ brought about God’s bless­ing for high level in re­la­tion to eter­nal joy, peace and all those ex­alted means of felic­ity, which are pre­pared for man in the world of glory.

Although, this grace of God’s bless­ing for higher lever is given free yet some peo­ple have not fully had grasp of it due to their re­jec­tion of what stand as the sym­bol of this bless­ing in the per­son of our Lord Je­sus Christ. It is only when they queue into the prin­ci­ple of this bless­ing that they can be cat­a­pulted into a higher level that their enemy even the devil and his agents can­not pull them down.

So, if to­day you have not tested the good­ness of God or you want to ex­pe­ri­ence the bless­ing for higher level, I want to let you know that an­other op­por­tu­nity is avail to you for our God the ever mer­ci­ful is set to visit us again this week­end.

Our father in heaven wants to use the oc­ca­sion of the visit to sea­son His mercy with bless­ing for higher level. Thus, God will place us above the chal­lenges that have been trou­bling us all th­ese years, for after this vis­i­ta­tion we will see them no more. I don’t know what is trou­bling you, but what­ever that may be, God’s bless­ing for higher level, which will be show­ered upon us this week­end shall over­ride it and your life will never be the same again.

Lev. 19:2 says, “Speak un to all the con­gre­ga­tion of the chil­dren of Is­rael, and say unto them, yes hall be holy: fori the lordy our go­dam holy.”

Moses was com­manded by God to let the peo­ple He has called and made spe­cial peo­ple to be on fa­mil­iar terms with His na­ture and en­sure they con­form to that na­ture. Moses made known God’s statutes to the en­tire con­gre­ga­tion. It is re­quired that Is­rael should be a holy peo­ple, be­cause the God who called them is holy God. So, if you want to be among those that will ben­e­fit from bless­ing for higher level you must en­sure you con­form to His re­quire­ment of ho­li­ness and right­eous­ness.

This we ought to do now that God has re­mem­bered us and has promised to visit and give us an­swer to our prayers. For we are very sure His visit will change our lives and make us bet­ter, be­cause when He comes into a sit­u­a­tion, there is al­ways a so­lu­tion.
