Men can actually keep visiting a man and yet there won't be any traces of the real change in the life of that man. 

Ouch!! I don’t know if you can really picture how frustrating it can be when you are by the door ready to go in there to get water to quench that thirst but having no key to open the door that will help you go in becomes the only hindrance. Frustration!

As it is impossible to do the proceedings in the house of assembly without the presence of mace so also is a solution at hand without an access to it and without a way out to it.

You know the solution, you know what to do but you just somehow wasn't able to do that which you ought to do.

This kind somehow remain a kind of puzzle. Hence, making many pressing questions to sit upon the heart of men.

Just like we see someone who is ready to go for that training but lack finance to fund the training, so do we see someone else unready to go for the training but have everything it takes to fund and be a partaker in the training.

For he who has no money to fund the training, depending on human beings for help can be so devastating. To understand this better demands a need to dig further.....


Several years ago, there was a certain man in a village called the unique land. This village has gotten this name “unique land” due to it popularity of having a special pool with five porches which is troubled occasionally in order for the disabled in body to become able . However, the activities that took place at this pool certainly can be likened to the survival of the fittest as many physically disabled, the blind, the halt, the lame, the mentally disabled, the deaf, the dumb to mention but few usually lay waiting in great multitude for the moving of the water from this pool which is set to heal only one person at a given season.


Due to the custom, being healed by the water from the pool requires the quality of being swift in getting into the pool.

Once troubled, he who get in first become the luckiest among the multitude.

To this certain man, there was no hope for him at all as he has gotten no one to help him into the pool let alone getting deliverance from that state of confinement. No family, no friends, not even a soul could volunteer to play that role of a good Samaritan in his life by helping him into the pool as everyone seems to be busy helping their relatives, family, friends, husbands, wives, children, spouses or probably those that paid them to help them into the pool. Although he has visibly experience the manifestation of the touch from the pool upon the lives of others and has been hoping to feel the touch too but it so sad that there was none to help him out of his predicament. “If someone can just help me at least just with an attempt to get into this pool” he lamented.


Days roll by, turning to weeks then weeks turned to months, months turned to a year and then gradually to years of loneliness, depression and desertion for this man. In the scorching sun, cold nights,heavy downpour, booming of thunder and flashing of lightning he was left alone to nurture his wounds and carry his burden for a period of thirty eight  years of bitterness. 

Seeing a solution right before ones eyes but having no access on how to tap in into the solution can be one of the most frustrating things in life and here is this disabled man willing & ready to be healed but have no source of movement for the healing. Hence, he totally became hopeless and accepted this as fate. 


One fateful day, a stranger visited this village and as he was touring round, he came to this special location which has served as a centre of attraction to many within and outside the vicinity of this village over the years.

As he walked round to see for himself the hustling and bustling of this crowded place, something caught his attention and behold it was a figure of a man who lie hopelessly on a bed. He moved closer to converse with this man and he said unto him ” Mr Man, do you want to be free from this state?”. On hearing this, the disabled man thought it was a form of mockery and this increased his pain the even the more and tearfully he replied “Strange man, I know you not but why should you come and rekindle my hopelessness by reminding me that over the years I have gotten no one to help me into this pool”. ”

"Even some of those that come here within a day has become free because they have gotten someone to help them out, but what have I done to deserve this painful reminder from you sir?” He lamented. 

The stranger looked closely at the man and out of mercy he said “Oh man, thou art found grace and favour in the sight of the Lord this day” and with a charging voice he said “Rise, take up thy bed and walk”. Immediately, these three powerful command came forth, this man did exactly as it was commanded of him.


With a shout of freedom he took up his bed and began to show off himself to those around. ”So I can be free from this state of stagnancy” he joyfully thought aloud . "I met him, I am free indeed!" he shouted joyfully, walking around to let men see that his status as changed and that he has gotten a change of name.

Many saw the same man that has been confine to the same bed for years now walking around, full of live. Some congratulated him saying ” Congrats sir”. Some were indifferent and some began to look out for faults in his healing process saying “Why would you receive healing today of all days”, some said “You did'nt even ask the stranger to wait for the day when due protocols of putting you into the pool can be followed”, others added “The stranger must be punished for breaking the law of the land” but all these sayings doesn't matter to this man who has just been set free from thirty eight years of bondage without a dime.

All that matters to him is that he was commanded to rise, take up his bed and walk: and he did.


What could have been more precious than being liberated from a confine position? To the disabled man, those years were the most bitter years of lockdown in his life.

If you can just imagine being lockup in a room for just two weeks with no one to talk with, no visitation, no movement, no freedom whatsoever.

This will just be a bit of the iceberg from the experience of this man.

When the book of remembrance was opened unto him, when the grace and the mercy of God fall upon this man, the protocols of men were useless, the verdicts and opinion of men become unnecessary. 

This is what the Visitation of Jesus can do upon the life of a man.

When he visit you, human guidelines will be needless. When he come in contact with you all your pain and sorrow will be gone. 

When he open the book of remembrance unto you, your life will experience that drastic change that will make men stand in awe. When he decided to promote you, human qualification will be needless.

I don't know that stagnant position you might have been over the years.

I don't know that which has been eating you up even before coming in contact with this message.

Probably you have come reading this with a longing in your heart.  A lot of old hopes have dried up.

Dreams have waited and almost died. Dead-end streets again and again.

Probably you feel Empty, Unfulfilled and  Dissatisfied. 

Perhaps, everything that looks good is out of reach. No money. No strength. No motivation. You have even count yourself out of those that can still see the Light.

But at least there is a longing. A thirst!

He is coming for you now! When he said "Rise" rise up my beloved.

Human beings might have forgotten, forsaken or rejected you over the years but just wait and hope upon that single visitation from the father who is coming to change your life, status, business, ministry or marriage for the best.

Just note this, the commendations of God outweigh the recommendation of humans.

You are what you are through his grace.

Many will not be ready to help you out of that situation but are fully prepared to find faults in that breakthrough, liberation, promotion and deliverance but does this really matter?,No!! For all that matters is that you will be having an encounter with him who will ask you to "stand up, take up your bed and walk" into that promotion, into that liberty, into that prosperity, into that outstanding position. This is all that matters. 

You don't need any greater conviction than this that when God visit a man, he visit him with a command that changes his life forever.

Blind Bartimeaus maintain the name "Blind" until he encountered Jesus.

The lame man by the gate called beautiful continue to remain in the same state until God himself visited him through his servants.

You don't actually need to give up on God because of that situation. Though it might tarries but in due time, he will rebrand all about you through that single visitation.

Build your hope stronger upon his promises and await that life changing testimony.

I hope & will be glad that you start experiencing such inestimable visitations as from today.

You shall leap for Joy!
