“Spirit of Victory” is a debut from Sunnypraise Adoga which promises to be jam-packed with many beautiful tracks.
“Spirit of Victory” tells a story of the victory and freedom we have in Christ. Christ has won us the victory by His death upon the cross which brought salvation to mankind. Before His death and resurrection, and before His ascension, He promised to send the disciples the Holy Spirit, the Advocate, the Paraclete, the Spirit of Truth, who would teach them all things. This Holy Spirit came at Pentecost while they were gathered in the upper room. Before the descent of the Holy Ghost, the disciples were afraid, and could not show their faces, but had the doors locked. But the descent of the Holy Ghost upon them gave them unusual boldness, it gave them victory over fear, and they began to do what they could not do before. The Holy Ghost also filled them with unusual power. The benefits of the Holy Spirit of God, cannot be overemphasized. We are in the era of the Spirit, the dispensation where the Spirit of God leads the sons of God. All we could ever achieve can only be by His mighty grace, and the eminent working of His Holy Ghost. Are you down, you need the Holy Ghost, depressed, in bondage, in sin, lack faith, lack wisdom, lack freedom, we can never do without the Holy Spirit. The freedom we enjoy in Christ, is by His Spirit, which gives us the same freedom; for where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
Track One is a reinstatement of faith, one which echoes the praise of God, amidst all circumstances. Such faith is what moves God. This entails that we worship, and praise Him for whom He is, and are not moved or deterred by situations surrounding us, or what we face.
This transitions into the next track, a song which acknowledges the might of God. “MAJESTY”, is a powerful song of praise; of course, God alone sits in the corridors of power, and in the realm of majesty. “Majesty” is also a vehement song of strong faith, one that declares; “oh God, I won’t let you go, until you manifest yourself”, like Jacob held God to ransom yesterday, until he obtained the blessing that transformed him and his generations forever. Often, we give up very early before the help we seek arrives.
Track three, “MIGHTY GOD”, still praises the majesty of God, who sits upon His throne of majesty up above. It reiterates the unchanging nature of God, for the same power and might He possessed yesterday, is still at work today.
Of course, Christ is our solid rock upon which we stand. Because He is our foundation, we cannot be moved. Ebenezer praises the immovable, indefatigable and unchangeable nature and power of God. The same God who was yesterday, He is today, and will forever be. Even demons know this truth, and so tremble at the mention of His glorious name. When he shows up, sicknesses have no alternative, but leave; darkness has no place, but vanishes. Such is the glorious power of our God.
EBENEZER unfolds into the story of our identity in Christ, “WHEN I SEE THE BLOOD”. Having won us the victory by His blood shed upon the cross, we have this unique identity. The blood of Christ that speaks better things than the blood of Abel is our identity. By the shedding of this blood upon the cross, Christ won us the victory. By the same blood of the lamb, the angels in heaven overcame the dragon and his angels in revelations 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony;…”. By blood, the angel of death bypassed the habitations of the Hebrews in Egypt, so is the blood of Christ our unique identity as Christians. The plague cannot come nigh our dwellings all by the shedding of his precious blood, and our unique identity in Him, hallelujah!
Track six (6), is a prayer, much more like “THINK ON ME” Lord. Just like the popular song “pass me not oh gentle saviour”, this song is a humble cry and prayer unto God. The inspiration for the song actually came from the scripture. While studying the scripture on a faithful day, reading through Genesis 40:12, after Joseph interpreted the chief butler’s dream, he made this solemn request “Think on me”. We see in the scripture, God telling us to remind Him of His words. This is not because God forgets his promises but, on our parts, do we believe in those things which he has promised? For no word from God will ever fail (Lk 1:37 NIV). Unlike the chief butler who forgot Joseph (Gen. 40: 23). Christ is faithful, and all who make such requests to God, will surely have their answers. He says: “…him that cometh to me, I will in no wise cast out” (John 6:37). The bible further says whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Rom 10:13, Joel 2:32). If the robber who was already sentenced to death could still obtain salvation before his death, just because he had the privilege of knowing and beholding the truth in Christ, grasping that truth, he vehemently called upon the Master to remember him in His kingdom. Our merciful saviour forgave him all his atrocities and promised him paradise. How much more if we call upon God from our hearts today. Just call upon the saviour. He is faithful to save!
The love of God for us is an eternal one (Rom 8:35; 38-39). It was this love that made God our Father, gave his only begotten son to die for our redemption (John 3:16). The track, “ETERNAL LOVE”, is all about this unending love of God that takes away burdens, and all evil histories written about and against us, as Christ cleanses and redeems us by His own precious blood.
“THE REASON” is a track which advocates in lucid terms our reason for singing, for joy, for jubilation and rejoicing. Even when the world disappoints us, family and friends forsake us, when we can no longer trust anyone as a result of past experiences and disappointments; God is our sure hope and focus. He never fails. Whom else could the reason be, and what else could it possibly be. God is our sure purpose. HE IS THE REASON.
“OJUM” is an Idoma word, a Nigerian language which means SUFFICIENT FOR ME. The song which is sung in Idoma language, Igbo language and English language, is that of contentment, dedication, focus, trust, and faithfulness, and faith in God. This means that the grace, name, way, will and power of God is sufficient for us at any time. We do not need to search anywhere. GOD IS WITH US, and what we need, HE WILL SURELY SUPPLY.
“Ojum(Sufficient for me) beautifully transitions into this calm and solemn song, “WONDERFUL WONDER”. While pondering one day, I thought about the majesty of God, His wonderfulness, His might and power, how He made all things out of nothing but by His word, and how He alone was never created. Everything was wonderful, and a mystery. Then the inspiration for this track dawned upon me like a gentle breeze, and this solemn piece was brought forth by the wonderful grace and inspiration of His Majesty, the God who sits upon the circles of the earth.
Track 11 is another song in Idoma language, “Ohonyeta” which means deliverer or saviour. It is God that is able to save and deliver His children from all predicaments, circumstances, trials, tribulations, diseases, pandemics, and any trouble whatsoever.
“EVERYTHING I WANT” is a song of total surrender to God. What else could one possibly be searching for in a confused world full of so many activities, chaos, and distractions, but to have one’s focus on God.
“SEND DOWN YOUR SPIRIT” is a call on God to send down his Holy Ghost. Each day, and every moment that passes by, we need a fresh anointing. This anointing, and rekindling of the fire of the Holy Ghost burning in us, is what makes us powerful Christians.
“SPIRIT OF VICTORY” is about the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit which gives us victory in all things.
Track 15 is still a call upon the Holy Spirit for His manifestations in our lives as we await his revival, power and glory.
“IMELA (AINYA) is a Christian makossa praise track that eulogizes the name of God, for His goodness, and for all He has done for us. The song was sung in Idoma, Igbo, and pidgin English.
