King David! – From king to kingmaker!
 
People are usually either kings or kingmakers. David was both, by the supernatural selection and backing of the Almighty God. How can you move from being a king to kingmaker? How was David’s life when he became king?
 
God’s testimonial
But now your kingdom must end, for the LORD has sought out a man after his own heart. The LORD has already appointed him to be the leader of his people, because you have not kept the LORD's command." – 1 Samuel 13:14
 
Assigned testimonial
Now these are the last words of David. David the son of Jesse declares, The man who was raised on high declares, The anointed of the God of Jacob, And the sweet psalmist of Israel, - 2 Samuel 23:1
 
Positives
  Did not help God 
  Remained humble
  Fighting only the Lord’s battles
 Listening and involved father
Negatives
  Adulterer and murderer
  Numbered Israel
 
From king to kingmaker!
 
 David was chased from the palace to the cave, from the cave to the mountain, from the mountains into the wilderness; from the wilderness to the enemy's territory; from the enemy's territory into the palace as a king of a little area - the province of Judea and later the president of the entire nation of Israel.
 
 David sat on the throne! 
 
 Whatever state you are in, may you get to your throne! May you walk upon your high places, may you sit on the throne God has destined for you; in Jesus mighty name! A throne of peace and rest.
 
  Not only did God make David a king, God made him a kingmaker. At his word, successive kings were ordained or rejected. Solomon was accepted and Adonijah was rejected.
 
 David's associates faced, defeated and destroyed the giants in the land.
 
Hear David, in Psalm 18:1-3
 
I will love you, O LORD, my strength.
 
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
 
3   I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from my enemies.
 
 I see God taking away your fears, giving you victory over every 'giant' situation, in the mighty name of Jesus!
 
  As God used David to establish and enforce His dominion on what God can do in the life, family and community of a person; may God do great and mighty things through you; for you, your family and community in Jesus mighty name!
 
Prayer
 Give thanks
 Pray over the positives in David’s life
 Pray over the negatives
 Lord, preserve me till the end
 Lord, help me to walk in your perfect will.

King David! – The King of the Future
 
How do you contact the future? How can you control the future? How can you make a positive significant impact on the future? How was David’s life after he was no longer King that still gives him an eternal impact, even as it is this day?
 
 
Contacted the Future
 David saw what Jesus was going to go through, hundred of years later and stated it. To the choirmaster: according to The Doe of the Dawn. A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning? – Psalm 22:1
 
Prophesied into the future
     A Psalm of David. The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” – Psalm 110:1
 
Positives
 Remained prayerful - And one told David, saying, Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom. And David said, O LORD, I pray thee, turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness. 2 Samuel 15:31
 Organized, even in distress – Then David numbered the people who were with him and set over them commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds. And David sent out the army, one third under the command of Joab, one third under the command of Abishai the son of Zeruiah, Joab’s brother, and one third under the command of Ittai the Gittite. And the king said to the men, “I myself will also go out with you.” - 2 Samuel 18:1-2
• Humble – Did not demand for the throne
 Gave wonderful handing over instructions to Solomon – 1 Kings 2:1-9
 
Negatives
None
 
King of the Future!
 
 God can make you a king of the future. God can speak good into your future and bring it to pass, because the zeal or passion of the Lord will accomplish it. May whatever good thing God has spoken concerning your future come to pass in Jesus mighty name!
 
 In 2 Samuel 7:11b-13; the Bible states concerning David: "'Furthermore, the LORD declares that he will make a house for you--a dynasty of kings! For when you die and are buried with your ancestors, I will raise up one of your descendants, your own offspring, and I will make his kingdom strong. He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. "
 
 God fulfilled it in Jesus; as He was granted an eternal kingdom. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, And of his kingdom there shall be no end (Luke 1:32-33).
 
 In this year of greatness, may God speak great things of eternal significance into your life, family, destiny and future; as well as into the life of your loved ones, in Jesus name!
 
 Listen to God and declare after His counsel, "I will be great, because God will make me great". "My descendants will be great"; "It is well with me"; "It shall be well with me"; "I will finish well"; "I will not live in regret"; "Shame is not my portion"; "Honour is my lot". "My tomorrow will be alright".  As you boldly declare these and much more, may your greatness, kingship and dominion over the future be firmly established in Jesus mighty name! Amen! and Amen!!; Amen!!!
 
 
Learning’s!
  Have a passion for God and the things of God
  Praise and worship God in good and bad times
  Be committed to God, no matter what.
 
Prayer
  Give thanks
  Pray over the positives in David’s life

King Ish-bosheth! – Powers are Powers!
 
Failure to recognize applicable powers and powers that be may be disastrous. Isbosheth recognized where power resides when David asked for his wife Michal. Even though he was a king, he recognized that powers are powers! We need to acknowledge powers in many scenarios of life!
 
Who is Ish-bosheth?
But Abner the son of Ner, commander of Saul’s army, took Ish-bosheth the son of Saul and brought him over to Mahanaim,
There he proclaimed Ishbosheth king over Gilead, Jezreel, Ephraim, Benjamin, the land of the Ashurites, and all the rest of Israel.
  
Ishbosheth, Saul's son, was forty years old when he became king, and he ruled from Mahanaim for two years. Meanwhile, the people of Judah remained loyal to David.
 
And the time that David was king in Hebron over the house of Judah was seven years and six months.
                                                                                                                      - 2 Samuel 2:8-11
 
Ish-bosheth
 Name means ‘Man of shame’
 Also called ‘Esh-Baal’ – man of Baal
 3rd earthly king in Israel
 Reigned over Benjamin and northern Israel
 
 Son of Saul; 1 Samuel 14:49
 From tribe of Benjamin
 
Positives
 Did not fight a ‘lost battle’: This preserved his life. So don't be too good or too wise! Why destroy yourself? Be not overly wicked, neither be a fool. Why should you die before your time? - Ecclesiastes 7:16-17
 
 Stood for what is right: Cautioned Abner for an unrighteous act. - 2 Samuel 3:7-11
 
 He knew his limits: He recognized that powers are powers.
Let every soul be in subjection to the higher powers: for there is no power but of God; and the powers that be are ordained of God. Therefore he that resisteth the power, withstandeth the ordinance of God: and they that withstand shall receive to themselves judgment. – Romans 13:1-2
 
 Ishbosheth recognized that powers are powers! When David sent a message to him, requesting for Michal, his wife, Ishbosheth quickly complied.
 
Ishbosheth, whose name means shame or humiliation, complied with the powers that be even when it was not convenient.
 
We need to pray for the powers that be to establish laws and rule in ways that will guarantee peace.
 
Hear Paul:
     1I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 5For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:1-5).
 
Remember to pray for all our leaders!
 
 He counted the cost:
"But don't begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it?
"Or suppose a king is going to war against another king. He will first sit down and consider whether with 10,000 men he can fight the one coming against him with 20,000 men, won't he? - Luke 14:28,31
 
Counting the cost
  A wonderful example of counting and paying the cost:
Despite the recent attacks on Christians by Muslims in Northern Nigeria, God still has a plan to bring the persecutors to a knowledge of His Son Jesus Christ.  Indeed, He’s in control.  We must never stop praying for Muslims all over the world that they may know the truth and true freedom in Jesus Christ.
 
Read the heart-warming story of His work below.
 
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. (Apostle Paul; 2 Corinthians 9:8)
  
"When I returned from Saudi Arabia, my mother encouraged me to join the Shite Sect. As a good son I had to do the will of my parents and so I join the Jihadists. My mother obtained for me a jacket that I wore on our jihadist outings. It had 100 charms sewn on it. These charms included the satanic verses that Muslims are using to destroy the world today". - Brother Paul Ado Bayero
  
Brother Paul Ado Bayero
A Testimony and Conversion Experience Of Alhaji Ahmed Ado Bayero, now Brother Paul Ado Bayero!
 
My name is Paul Ado Bayero. You may have been hearing of the grandson of the Emir of Kano (Northern Nigeria) Alhaji Ado Bayero, who converted to Christianity. You may have been wondering whether it is true or not; I tell you today that it is true for I am the one. I am a Hausa man, a typical Hausa man from Kano State, Nigeria, grandson of the Emir of Kano, my mother’s name is Jumai.
 
  Of my mother’s children, I’m the only one that did not receive western education in an English speaking school. My mother was a devout Muslim who loved Islam and despised anything that was not Islamic. She used to abuse Christians. Anywhere she saw Christians she would curse them. Because of the disposition, she prevailed on my father to allow me to be trained in Islamic education. My father agreed because it was a thing of pride in Islam for one’s child to be properly schooled in Islamic teachings. It was more prestigious to send a child to an Islamic school than to an English speaking school. My father thus sent me to an Arabic school and I grew up according to the teachings of the Qur’an.
 
I was thoroughly school in the Qur’an achieving the 1st and 2nd graduation in quick successions. I learnt the secrets of the Qur’an from Juzili which says that the words of truth and of justice are in THAT book. For the Qur’an to say that the truth is in THAT book means that the “book of truth” is not the Qur’an. It means the Qur’an is referring to another book as the book of truth and justice. So I started searching, which is that book that the Qur’an calls the book of TRUTH.
 
According to the Qur’an, there are three books the Qur’an, injila and purah. The injila and the purah are in the bible. This means that the Qur’an is saying that the truth is in the Bible.
While all of these were going through my mind, I was sent to Saudi Arabia to further my Islamic training. I visited many historic Islamic sites and read many books of Islam. I became very fluent in Islam and Arabic studies.
 
  The Qur’an talks more about Jesus Christ than Mohammed
When I returned from Saudi Arabia, my mother encouraged me to join the Shite Sect. As a good son I had to do the will of my parents and so I join the Jihadists. My mother obtained for me a jacket that I wore on our jihadist outings. It had 100 charms sewn on it. These charms included the satanic verses that Muslims are using to destroy the world today. I was one of the disciples of Sheik Gumi. After that I went to research some other books in Islam, because the Qur’an does not give us a real background about Mohammed. The Qur’an talks more about Jesus than Mohammed. But the story of the life of Mohammed is not found in the Qur’an but in the OTHER book that the Qur’an refers to as the HADIT. The story of Jesus Christ, His ministry, miracles and power are clearly documented in the Qur’an.
 
I was in darkness in those days, but today I’m a very happy Christian because I have now seen the light. And I pray that God will visit all the people (Including the kings in the north) and cause them to become born-again in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen!. I believe that the time will still come when I will go back to Kano State to take over the state for Christ. This would be done if all Christians can join hands together with us to pray in one accord to accomplish this mission. Something will happen. I extend this invitation to partake of this prayer and fasting to everyone for the salvation of those who are languishing in Islam. But the problem today is that the church does not operate with one purpose and one accord.
 
How we killed for Allah
Back to my story, I joined with the jihadist group in Kano and learnt how to kill Christians. In 1987, I participated in killing many Christians. I killed uncountable human beings at that time. I shed tears for what I had done believing that God would not forgive me. But today, I have found forgiveness in Christ Jesus. In Islam we were not taught anything like forgiveness. I remember that in the mosque in those days, our teachers taught us to pray against Christians that Christians should be destroyed. But in Christianity I discovered that the prayer of Christians towards Muslims all over the world is not for them to be destroyed but for God to show them the light, so that they would join hands together to worship God in the true and acceptable manner. You see the difference.
 
I hated to have anything to do with Christians, even my wife never wanted to see anything that had to do with Christianity. After the Christians I killed in 1987 during the riot, sometimes I would become confused, blood would be running in my head because of the lives of people that I took, thinking that God would never forgive me. But today Jesus has done something for me which Mohammed never did. And you who is reading this, He would also do for you something you will never expect from any other person because He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Wherever you are, Jesus is inviting you, to do for you what He has done for me. Come ye sinner the gospel will change you. He will do unto you what a dead God cannot do for you.
 
How I found Jesus Christ!
After all of these, nobody came to preach to me about Jesus. Jesus Christ appeared to me in my dream. I was sleeping on my bed and he came to me in my dream. In that dream He was coming towards me and raised up His hands and started beckoning on me with his right hand.
On his palms and feet blood was dripping from holes on his hands and his feet, and he was beckoning on me with those blood stained hands. As I was moving towards Him, doors that stood between me and Him started opening and just before I got to Him, a flash of light dazzled across from my face blinding me temporarily. Then I woke up, I heard a clear voice saying “I am Jesus”, but I did not see anybody. This was Friday, 12th of July 1991. In the morning I told my mother what happened over the night. That morning, Muslims were running to the mosque for early morning prayers, but I was running into salvation. But it was not easy. I told my parents what happened. My mother was mad at me. She abused me and pronounced every curse known to her on me.
 
  Who can battle with God?
But before this day, my wife had died. How did she die? I had brought a copy of the New Testament Bible home from somewhere. My wife saw the bible and said nobody can bring a bible into her home and that she was going to tear the bible. I cautioned her not to, she was adamant, lifted up the bible and said that she was challenging the God of the bible to come and fight with her. She said she was going to destroy the bible and if the God of the bible had any power, he should come and fight her. I became fearful and told my wife, do you think you would not die if you tear the bible. She tore it and burnt it. The following day my wife became sick and died three days after. It was with this background that I declared my life for Christ in my home on the 12th July 1991. I have an attitude to my life. If I want to do something and you threaten me about it, I will only be hardened to continue in that pursuit. When I declared for Christ, my entire family rose up
against me in unison. My mother in particular was very bitter, she said rather than becoming a Christian it was better for me to become an international armed-robber like the late Lawrence Anini.
 
They tore my stomach
She said she would be happier for her to be known as the mother of an armed robber than to be a mother of a Christian. Pandemonium broke out in the Emir’s palace. My brother took a knife and slashed my fingers and burnt my right hand and the five fingers were almost burnt completely. In the confusion that followed, someone ripped open my stomach with a knife and I ended up being thrown into a well. But Jesus was waiting for me. I was miraculously rescued from that well and the same Churches and Christians that I persecuted took care of me and later sent me to Port Harcourt because of severe persecution.

 
  Holy Spirit taught me English
I was sent to Bible School in Eleme, Rivers State but there was a big problem, I could only speak Hausa and Arabic. Rev. Emerua of the Assemblies of God Church proposed that I should be sent to an adult education class to learn English. Then someone received a revelation and told Rev. Emerua “don’t send him to English speaking school, the Lord will teach him.” Shortly after this revelation I had a dream in which three white men came to me. One of them touched my lips and said “you shall speak forever”. That was how I started speaking and writing English, it was the Holy Spirit that taught me. I believe this miracle of the teaching of the Holy Spirit is for everyone who believes in Christ. Why can’t you give your life to Christ? Jesus had done something for me, which He can do for you also. I thank God that what Jesus says in the bible has come true in my life. When He says He is the way, the truth and the life that no one can come to the
Father except through Him. I thank God that I have found that way, the truth and life.
 
But what had Mohammed got to say concerning Salvation?
In the Qur’an, his daughter Fatima came to him and asked him what guarantee of salvation he could give her. Mohammed replied, “My daughter Fatima, ask anything of me and I shall give it unto you, but do not ask me for a guarantee of salvation, for I myself do not know where I would end up” How much more for those who are following him. Ask yourselves.
 
Little wonder that my burden all the time was towards the Muslim nations. I was called specially to preach to Muslims and to Muslim nations. This work has begun in earnest and I’m promising you today that Islamic sharia law will not stand anywhere in Nigeria because this nation Nigeria belongs to Jesus Christ and to Him alone. I have a burden for all of the emirates in Northern Nigeria from my grandfather’s palace in Kano, to Borno and all the other emirates down to Sokoto State and all the other places. Today we have many children of God that God is going to use to bring light to all these Islamic areas to His glory. I believe that Kano State will be among the states that will be declared for Jesus Christ in Nigeria.
 
  I am a Kano man but Jesus had changed all of that and made me a citizen of Heaven and is waiting to do the same for all those who will come out of ISLAM! I thank God for choosing me to bring salvation to my people. My wife died, God allowed it because she probably would have been of no use to Christendom. My present wife is from southern Kaduna and is also an Evangelist. Our ministry is not a sit in the church ministry but to go out and evangelize to Muslims and other perishing souls. We need you to pray for us at all times because our lives are constantly in danger. Your prayers are very important to us so that we can reach the end of the assignment. Many have been called but have not yet responded to the call. Nothing can be compared to the peace and joy that comes from salvation in Christ Jesus. I come from a very wealthy background. My grandfather Ado Bayero stands high amongst the wealthy men inNigeria, but I forsook all of that money that cannot
give me joy and peace. The word of God gives me joy forever. Not all of the wealth of my grandfather can give me that kind of joy.
 
We have many who have known that joy today. People like Rev. Shehu Galadima who was a Sheik but today God is using him for the Gospel. We have the grandson of the former Sultan of Sokoto, Evangelist Mustapha Dasuki, we have Rev. Dalani, Prophet Isa El-Buba, Pastor Isa Bello, Rev. Tunde Olufowobi, Pastor Waziri, Evangelist Blessed Usman JP, Lady Evangelist Aminata Esther Jokolo, Rev. Dasuki, Rev. Mahmud Ado Bayero and three grandchildren of the Emir of Kano. All of them and many more have tasted of the power of the Gospel of the living Christ! I tell you that very soon that the gospel will be preached in all the emirates councils. What I say to God is “Give me this land of Muslims, give me these emirates councils, give me these sharia states” and by the grace of God, we will capture them all for Christ.”

Amen.
 
Who is Solomon?
God stated by prophecy that Solomon would be a king before he was born: But you will have a son who will be a man of peace and rest, and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side. His name will be Solomon, and I will grant Israel peace and quiet during his reign.
                                                                                                                                            - 1 Chronicles 22:9

Dreams
 
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.
                                                                                                      Lanston Hughes
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
                                                                                                 Eleanor Roosevelt
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
                                                                                                                                                                                                              Harriet Tubman
A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.  
                                                                                                                                                                           Oscar Wilde
Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”

Negatives
Loved strange women: But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; 1 Kings 11:1
 
Departed from God’s law: He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines, and his wives led him astray. As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father had been. 1 Kings 11:3-4
