Early morning secrets Dad taught me—Dr. Tobe Momah

“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)
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
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

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
(1st Samuel 3:19)

Dr. Tobe Momah with the GDA

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
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
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”.
fall for
vanity but pursue vision
My Dad’s Early Morning Power

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
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!
