“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God” (1st Corinthians 2:12)
Spiritual ignorance is the bane of this generation. Many are lettered educationally but unlearned in spiritual things! Hosea 4:6 says “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (and) because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee”. The greatest victims of satanic conspiracies are not the ignominious but the ignorant.
One way to increase our spiritual knowledge of God is by staying in tune with Him. No-one can grow deeper than their roots will allow. Similarly no one can know more of God without being in His presence. The foundation to knowing and growing in Him are planting ourselves at His feet first.
 Until the church goes beyond the earthly, we can’t taste the eternal truths’ of God. 2nd Peter 1:3 says “according as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue
Dr. Tobe Momah explaining SIT to Know

It takes redemption to walk in revelation and it takes power to manifest perception. Until God’s power came, knowledge to unlock the blessings of heaven on earth were not available (2nd Peter 1:3). God revealed the mystery of unprecedented blessings (1st Corinthians 2:9) by His spirit for “the spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God”, (1st Corinthians 2:10). Without His presence we can’t identify what our portions are.
Samuel: From Seeker to seer in Shiloh…
Dr. Tobe Momah, MD
Samuel didn’t know the Lord’s voice when the Lord thrice called out to him in one night. In 1st Samuel 3:7, the Bible says “Samuel did not yet know the Lord, neither was the word of the Lord yet revealed unto him”
The Book; S.I.T.
Though not fully cognizant with God’s voice, as a child, Samuel stayed a seeker. In 1st Samuel 3:1a, though still a “child (he) ministered unto the Lord before”. As a minister, he sat in God’s presence and worshiped. God saw his intent and rewarded him. He went from seeker to seer and by the age of spiritual maturity, “the Lord was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground”, (1st Samuel 3:19)
Dr. Tobe Momah with the GDA
Many believers run to the wrong source for truth. They, through wrong communication, lose the revelation that could have beautified their life. If Samuel had kept running to Eli, he would have never known the Lord’s voice and lost his destiny. Once Samuel connected with God as a child, he stayed in tune and grew to become the reference point for intercession in generations to come. Jeremiah 15:1 says, concerning the sheer Samuel, “though, Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be towards this people; cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth”
By the end of Samuel’s seeking of the Lord, “the Lord appeared again in Shiloh for the Lord revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord” (1st Samuel 3:21) and everyone knew Samuel was called to be a prophet. He went from seeker to seer by staying in God’s presence, not man’s.
Do not go from House to House!
Dr. Tobe Momah....'Jesus advised his disciples to stay in the Upper Room and those who obeyed were blessed'
Jesus advised his disciples as follows; “And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the laborer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house” (Luke 10:6-7). Even after Jesus departed, he advised them to “tarry in the city of Jerusalem, until they be endued with power from on high”, (Luke 24:49). The power of Pentecost came upon those in the upper room who stayed in tune with Him and not on the three hundred and eighty who He instructed to wait in Jerusalem (See 1st Corinthians 15:6) but strayed instead.
Dr. Tobe Momah explaining a point to the GDA during his recent visit to Abuja, Nigeria
All five hundred believers heard His last words to go to Jerusalem and tarry in Luke 24:52-53 but, instead of staying, majority left the upper room and when the Holy Spirit came, they missed an opportunity of a life time.
The one hundred and twenty disciples in the upper room, however, caused “the world to be turned upside down”, (Act 17:6). They were not hasty but waited ten days, and by so doing were equipped with the power of the Holy Spirit. Discipleship will cost you, as it did the early disciples; but eventually, it will be worth the price. 1st Samuel 12:21 says “turn ye not aside for then should ye go after vain things, which cannot profit nor deliver for they are vain”. Don’t fall for vanity but pursue vision relentlessly!
My Dad’s Early Morning Power Thoughts!
Dr. Tobe Momah with Dad, General Sam Momah (R) & Nigeria's Minister of Science & Technology, Dr. Ogbonaya Onu (L)
My Dad is a Military General trained in the finest schools of Military Strategy and intellectual vigor. He is a gifted word-smith who has authored numerous papers on strategy and published over six books on varied subjects like politics, cultural heritage, war, world peace and global economics.
He instilled in my siblings and me the need to awaken early in the morning and spend thirty minutes in meditation and quiet study. He affirmed the early morning learning technique as being responsible for his obtaining a first class civil engineering degree in University and being excellent in every facet of his work.
When I gave my life to Jesus Christ, however, my priorities changed. Instead of reading secular and scientific books, I sought the Lord and searched the scriptures in those early morning hours and found life that no amount of science or social studies could fathom.

Those early morning power thought sessions, laid the foundation for my future spiritual development, and gave me an edge over my contemporaries spiritually and academically. Thanks Dad!
