Scriptures on tithes and tithing

 

  1. Genesis 28 vs. 20-22– And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God: And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

 

    1. Numbers 18:21: An
    2. e of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year

 

  1. d, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.

 

  1. Deuteronomy 14:2
  2. 5 –Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose:

 

  1. Deut 14 vs 22: Thou shall truly tithe all the increas
  1. Deuteronomy 8 vs 18-But rememberthe LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth-

 

  1. Deuteronomy 23:18 says, “Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow; for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God”

 

  1. Joshua 13:14 –Only unto the tribes of Levi he gave none inheritance; the sacrifices of the Lord God of Israel made by fire are their inheritance, as he said unto them.

 

  1. 2 Chronicles 31:4-5– He ordered the people living in Jerusalem to give the portion due the priests and Levites so they could devote themselves to the Law of the LORD. As soon as the order went out, the Israelites generously gave the firstfruits of their grain, new wine, olive oil and honey and all that the fields produced. They brought a great amount, a tithe of everything.

 

  1. Malachi 3 vs. 10-11: Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.

 

 

  1. Matthew 23:23-Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!  For you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness.  These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.

 

  1. Luke 18:12- I fastqtwice a week and give a tenthr of all I get.’

 

  1. Luke 11:42-“Woe to you Pharisees, because you give God a tenthjof your mint, rue and all other kinds of garden herbs, but you neglect justice and the love of God.k You should have practiced the latter without leaving the former undone.l

 

13.  Acts 242 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke breadin their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved

 

  1. 1 Corinthians 9:14-In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel.

 

  1. Hebrews 7-Just think how great he was: Even the patriarch Abraham gave him a tenth of the plunder! Now the law requires the descendants of Levi who become priests to collect a tenth from the people—that is, from their fellow Israelites—even though they also are descended from Abraham.This man, however, did not trace his descent from Levi, yet he collected a tenth from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises. And without doubt the lesser is blessed by the greater. In the one case, the tenth is collected by people who die; but in the other case, by him who is declared to be living. One might even say that Levi, who collects the tenth, paid the tenth through Abraham, 10 because when Melchizedek met Abraham, Levi was still in the body of his ancestor.If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood—and indeed the law given to the people established that priesthood—why was there still need for another priest to come, one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron? 12 For when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also.

 

What is tithing?

 

  1. Tithes is paying 10% of all income.

 

  1. In the old testament three types of tithes are mentioned, though the present day church only emphasises only one of the three.

 

  1. The three types of tithes are:
  2. The Levitical or sacred tithe meant for servants of God-Numbers 18:21-“I give to the Levites all the tithes in Israel as their inheritance in return for the work they do while serving at the tent of meeting.
  3. The feast tithe that is supposed to be eaten by the tither-Deuteronomy 14:22–Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year. 23 Eat the tithe of your grain, new wine and olive oil, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks in the presence of the Lord your God at the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name so that you may learn to revere the Lord your God always. 24 But if that place is too distant and you have been blessed by the Lord your God and cannot carry your tithe (because the place where the Lord will choose to put his Name is so far away), 25 then exchange your tithe for silver, and take the silver with you and go to the place the Lord your God will choose. 26 Use the silver to buy whatever you like: cattle, sheep, wine or other fermented drink or anything you wish. Then you and your household shall eat there in the presence of the Lord your God and rejoice. 27 And do not neglect the Levites living in your towns, for they have no allotment or inheritance of their own.

 

  1. The poor tithe that is supposed to be given to strangers, orphas, widows and the port every three years. Deuteronomy 14: 28At the end of every three years, bring all the tithes of that year’s produce and store it in your towns, 29 so that the Levites (who have no allotment or inheritance of their own) and the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.

 

Origin of Tithing

  1. God separated one of the twelve tribes of Israel to serve Him.
  2. He commanded that no inheritance of the land of Canaan should be given to the tribe.
  3. Their inheritance was to be tenth of the income of the other 11 tribes.
  4. The tribe of Levites were servants of the Lord, who interceded on behalf of the people and worshipped God day and night
  5. They were full time workers in the Sanctuary, and tithes were to be their income.
  6. God instituted tithing in the Old Testament as a reward for Levites who are on full time service in the tabernacle.
  7. Bible also states that at a point when the people stopped paying tithes, the Levites abandoned their service to God
  8. But before God instituted tithing, some Bible characters paid tithe by faith, as a covenant, and as an offering to God
  9. Genesis 14 vs. 20 –And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.-Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedek the king of Salem even before tithing became a rule for Israelites.
  10. If Abraham paid tithes before the coming of law, all Christians desiring Abrahamic blessings should continue to pay tithes after the law.
  11. In Genesis 28 vs 22, Jacob was embarking on a journey and vowed to give Him a tenth of his wealth to God as a mark of honour- Genesis 28 vs. 20-22And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God: And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.
  12. In the New testament, tithing is mentioned about four times. Jesus did not denounce tithing, but said religiosity of tithing by the Pharisees was not enough, but also advised them to practice mercy and righteousness
  13. According to Jesus mercy and righteousness is more important than tithing.
  14. The early disciples of God did more than tithing, they were bringing all their income to the feet of the Apostles.
  15. Tithing is also mentioned in Hebrews which referred to the blessing received by Abraham resulting from the tithe he gave to the Priest Melchizedek and illustrates the superiority of Melchizedek and Jesus Christ over the Levitical priesthood.
  16. Of note the passage also notes ‘when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also” (verse 12). which means tithes or above tithing should not be preached or given as a compulsory religious doctrinaire obligation, but voluntarily, cheerfully from the hearts of Christians.
  17. New testament Christianity does not cancel tithing but cancels its religious legalism, replacing it with voluntary act of honouring God and supporting the expansion of the Kingdom with sacrificial offerings even above your tithes (10% of your income) or according to your best ability.
  1. In the New testament, the early Christians paid more than tithes, and the Apostles shared all these with the brethren according to every one’s need.

  3. If you want to have a serious relationship with God then, you must achieve the understanding Jacob had. Jacob did not wait for a law before he became a tither.

 

How do I pay my tithes?

Deuteronomy 14:25 – Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose:

  1. In the Old Testament, the Israelites pay tithes from the increase of their crops, because they were mainly farmers

  3. Tithes should not be paid only from earned income, but a financial increase coming to us.
  4. Tithes should be paid from legitimate income, not illegitimate or stolen income.
  5. You are normally expected to pay your tithes where you are being blessed spiritually which is your local church where you fellowship and/or working as a servant of God.
  6. You may also wish to pay your tithes to any Christian ministry involved in the expansion of the Gospel and soul winning.
  7. Jesus through the parable of the sower in Matthew 13 increases our understanding that is wise to sow in a fertile ground, and some grounds may be more fertile than others; as such where you decide to pay your tithes matters. It is therefore advisable to give your tithe in a fertile ground producing abundant souls for the kingdom of God.
  8. Don’t forget that there is also an unpreached tithe for the window which you are supposed to pay every three years, if we are to strictly follow the old testament law (Deuteronomy 14:22) which has been partially cancelled by new testament Hebrews 7 vs 4-12, all your tithes every three years ( which could be estimated to be 1/3 of your annual types) should be given to strangers, fatherless, orphans, widows, and the poor.
  9. In summary, Christians are supposed to pay beyond tithes voluntarily and sacrificially, and the managers of the tithes are supposed to use this to meet not only the needs of the clergy, pastors, or priests, but other full time workers in the church, as well as operational and running costs of the church or ministry, needs of the underprivileged, the poor, homeless, widows, orphans,  and to generally support the activities of the congregation.
  10. This is what the scriptures support.

How to please God

Posted on Updated on

PLEASING GOD
By Pastor Enoch Adeboye

 

“By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God” (Heb 11:5).

Believers can be categorized according to their attitude towards God and His work into three broad groups: God-pleasers, men-pleasers and self-pleasers. Heaven issues testimonials to God-pleasers. Every God-pleaser gets a certificate but there are different grades.

Revelation 4:11 says, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created”. You exist to please Him. The sole purpose for which God created you is to please Him. Anytime you displease Him, you negate your purpose of existence. You cannot live without pleasing God. Those who are not pleasing God daily are barely existing, not living. They cannot access the abundant life He has made available to us (Jn 10:10).

If you have been born again, it is for you to please Him. Your life should revolve around Him. Some believers try to separate business from the Christian faith. You will hear them say, ‘Business is business. Leave God out of this matter. When we get back to church, we will put on our moral garb’. The day you received Jesus into your heart, you lost the right to live for yourself or to please yourself. “For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me” (Rom 15:3).

Today’s reading clearly says believers should not focus on pleasing themselves. When the Lord Jesus Christ was here on earth, He too lost His right to please Himself. His focus was God. He set God at His right hand and daily strove to please Him. What matters is not what you think, your opinions, convenience or personal goals, but that of the One who has called, saved and commissioned you as His soldier (2 Tim 2:4). If you seek personal convenience and ambition to the detriment of the Kingdom, you cannot please God.

Self-pleasers idolize themselves. They are number one. God and anyone else can come after. If you find it difficult to pay your tithes regularly, or to obey God on matters that appear to take much from you, it is because you are serving yourself. You are your god. Repent and release everything to the King of kings today.

If you live for yourself, you will have no future beyond earth. If you live for Christ, you will end up with Him.

My tomorrow is greater than today

Posted on Updated on

 
Memorise: “By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament” (Heb 7:22)

Read: Haggai 2:3-9

By Pastor Enoch Adeboye

“The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts” (Hag 2:9).

Whatever you are today, thank God: but the best is yet to come. As long as you remain in the Lord, your tomorrow will be better than today, because it is His nature to reserve the best for the last. At the marriage in Cana, Galilee, the Lord made this evident to everyone especially the chairman of the gathering.

The man said it is usual for people to give their best wine at the beginning and bring out the worst afterwards; but he was shocked that the best wine was brought after the worst (Jn 2:1-11). Whatever people think they have seen in you, they have seen nothing yet. Your best is yet to be revealed. Your best is coming out and there is nothing any body or demon can do about it, as long as you cooperate with the Lord Jesus Christ.

A look through scriptures confirms this nature of God. For instance, concerning covenants, the New Covenant was released as a better version of the old. Hebrews 8:6 says, “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises”. Hebrews 8:6-7 says the first covenant was faulty hence the need for the second. God always keeps the best for the end.

One lesson here is that if God has found you to do a particular assignment for Him, do it with all your heart and make maximum profit for Him. Never give Him an opportunity to replace you because if you do, He will equip your replacement better than He equipped you, and the job will be better done than how you did it. Judas Iscariot had the opportunity of being an apostle of Jesus.

When he messed up, his replacement – Paul, achieved so much more. Although Judas was educated, Paul was far more; he even had a doctorate in law. He was mightily used of God to turn the world upside down for Jesus – a feat that none of the other apostles could achieve. Ask God not to replace you. Ask for grace to be faithful to the end. It is a dangerous thing to be dumped by the Most High. The Lord will not dump you. You will fulfil His purpose for your life in Jesus’ Name.

Father, let me never do what would make You to replace me.

Jesus as wonderful counselor

Posted on Updated on

Memorise: “Where no counsel is, the people fall; but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety” (Prov 11:14)

Read: Proverbs 19:20-21

 

By Pastor Enoch Adeboye

Isaiah 9:6 calls Jesus the Wonderful. Another reason He is so named is because there are certain situations or events that ordinary strength, understanding or ability cannot contain. At such a time, He can bring to bear His infinite supernatural strength, wisdom and ability. In that situation which appears above your understanding or ability, the Wonderful will enter in and give you beyond your heart’s desire in Jesus’ Name.

In Daniel 6 , the whole world thought an end had come for Daniel. That night, those behind the plot were celebrating their feat in getting the king to do what he never wanted done. To them, Daniel’s relevance had ended that night. But unknown to them, Daniel communicated with the Wonderful.

By the following morning, the world awoke with open mouths to see Daniel alive. Not only that, those who plotted against Daniel became food for the lions. Anyone who is plotting your fall shall encounter the Wonderful today and end up in the belly of lions.

Another name the Lord is called in Isaiah 9:6 is Counsellor. A counsellor is the one you go to when you do not know what to do next. Counselling is very important in the life of every believer. Counselling may be required before every crucial decision is made. The quality of decisions you make will be determined by the strength of advice received.

The quality of the advice you receive is a function of the experience and training of your adviser. There are good and bad counsels. Psalm 1:1-3 forbids believers from receiving counsel from unbelievers. If you make an unbeliever your adviser, he may cause you to go astray in the name of advising you. Psalm 106:43 says whenever you take advice contrary to God’s Word, you provoke God to work against you.

For instance, when you are advised to go into premarital sex with your partner in order to test her ability to bear children and you take it, you violate God’s Word that says, ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery’. As a consequence of this, you will be humbled by God’s judgement. Yet, Proverbs 20:18 says good counsels are the building blocks of any successful plan.

In fact, without it you may not succeed in that plan, project or assignment ( Prov 11:14). Do you know you require counselling to succeed in business, academics, ministry, family, career, etc.? This is why you need to know Jesus as The Counsellor. To what extent has He revealed Himself to you as the Counsellor?

Until you cut off from ungodly counsels and counsellors, you may never experience Jesus as the Counsellor.

What is spiritual covering and authority?

Memorise: “For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy” (1 Cor 7:14)

Read: Genesis 8:1-2

 

By Pastor Enoch Adeboye

When one’s day of remembrance comes, several benefits follow. In Acts 9:36-42, the good deeds of Dorcas caused her to be remembered after a particular sickness snuffed out the life in her. But when Heaven remembered her good deeds, life returned to her lifeless body. Do you know that you can sow into God’s Kingdom and members of that Kingdom and thereby prevent death or authorize your resurrection after death?

Keep sowing into the lives of fellow believers. Meet their needs. Put laughter in their mouths. Such deeds are for yourself because someday, they will speak for you. Apart from resurrection, when you are remembered, floods dry up and the beauty that was covered is revealed. This was Noah’s experience in Genesis 8:1-2. When God remembers you, the flood that swept you off your feet will dry up.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, every flood that is working against your stability will dry up now. Your glory, beauty and star that have been covered for so long shall suddenly, come to lime light from today. It is your day of remembrance.

In Genesis 19:27-29 when God remembered Abraham, He organized Lot’s deliverance from an inferno that would have roasted him alive. When God remembers you, your distant relatives will benefit from divine covering and protection. If members of your immediate or extended family are falling victims of armed robbers, fire, death and destruction, it could be because God has not remembered you. As long as God remembers you, your loved ones will surely benefit from it.

This goes to show that a believer’s cover can extend far and wide. If you live right before God and He remembers you, if your relative in the USA or Europe or any part of the world is about to become a victim of satanic destructive plans, God will intervene. A believer’s spiritual cover is something very powerful. If the wife is a believer but the husband is not, the wife’s cover will shelter her husband and children and vice versa (1 Cor 7:14).

By extension, as a pastor, your spiritual cover can affect distant relatives of members of your church. Ensure you keep away from sin so that that cover is retained. How are your relatives benefiting from divine coverage?

Father, as You remember me today, intervene in the lives of all my loved ones at home and abroad.

Knowing Gods will in marriage

Posted on Updated on

Memorise: “And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them” (Is 42:16)

Read: Isaiah 42:16-2

One question that a single believer who has agreed to let God choose his or her marriage partner would ask is, How do you recognize God’s choice in marriage? How do you know the will of God concerning marriage? If we return to the first marriage that took place in the Garden of Eden, recorded in Genesis 2:18-25, you will observe that Adam had no difficulty recognizing his wife.

It was recognition at first sight! Even now, God still deals with His children in this way. You could recognize your Heaven-sent partner the first time you sight him/her. What negates the effectiveness of this is spiritual insensitivity. If your spirit man is highly developed to be in sensitivity to the things of the Spirit, it will be very easy. Psalm 25:9 says, “The meek will he guide in judgement and the meek will he teach his way”. If you are meek and totally submitted to His will and have no idol in your heart, God will easily guide you.

When God was to give Adam his wife, He did not have to struggle with Adam. He put him to sleep and allowed him to see what He was doing through his spiritual eyes.

One reason many fail to receive God’s will is because they have set up an idol in their hearts. Any one who shows up is compared with that idol. As long as you have an idol of the ideal partner in your heart, God may find it difficult leading you. If you truly want Him to guide you, eradicate all idols -the ideal height, complexion, figure, size, tribe, educational level, social status, etc.

Trust His decision like Adam. Adam went to sleep and allowed God to make the choice. The brother or sister you are seriously hoping or praying is Heaven’s choice may actually be the one hindering you from Heaven’s choice. Even if you were totally blind, if you can completely yield to His will, He promises to lead you in ways you have not known and bring you into your desired rest (Is 42:16). God’s will in marriage is for those who can trust His judgment In making decisions, you need information.

The quality of the decision made is dependent on the quality of information used. Every man possesses limited information but God is infinite. After He looks throughout the whole world and tells you a particular brother or sister is His best for you, be rest-assured you would never find an alternative as good. Go ahead and accept His choice.

God can lead you in very clear, sure and definite ways. Humbly submit to His leading.

Blessings of waiting on God

Posted on Updated on

Memorise: “Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured” (Prov 27:18)

Read: Isaiah 40:29-31

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Is 40:31). Although prayer cannot change God, it can however change weakness to strength. The above verse says there is exchange of strength by waiting on the Lord in prayer.

This means, whenever you access God’s presence, go with all your frailties, weaknesses and failings. Go in as an empty vessel that is ready to be filled. Never enter His presence with the notion that you have it all, that you have arrived or that you do not really need Him: You may lose what you think you have and return empty! How do we wait on the Lord?

When you visit a five star hotel, a waiter or waitress waits on you to take your orders and make you comfortable. It is the duty of the waiter to wait on you. He or she is paid to do so. If you complain about what was served, it is his duty to see that it is changed. Even if you are a small boy, the waiter will put up his best and say: ‘Yes sir’ to your orders and smile because he knows you are going to pay for it.

When you wait on the Lord, you are to be the waiter and He your guest. Serve Him only what He likes and not what you like. Unfortunately, because many of us do not understand what it means to wait on Him, we turn Him into the waiter and we the guest. We would barrage Him with orders: “God, I want this, I want that.

Don’t forget what I asked for yesterday and the previous day. Ensure my provision is ready for today. Lest I forget, do not allow any evil to cross my path today – that is, be a good security guard to me. I hope you heard all I have said?” At the end of the day, the Lord will ask, “Who’s the waiter here?” When you wait on the Lord, give Him water to drink, food to eat. Give Him praise.

God is the One that should be flattered yet you cannot flatter Him because He is more than what you say He is. He is more than how best you can describe Him. However, tell Him He is good, wonderful and kind. Call Him by His names. If you can do this very well, you will get a tip. A tip from the Almighty is enough to settle you for life. Are you weak? You ought to be in God’s presence.

How you treat God is how you will be treated. If you can wait on God, men will wait on you. If you ignore God, you will be ignored by men.

How to hear from God

Posted on Updated on

Memorise: “And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice” (1 Kings 19:12).

Read: 1 Kings 19:9-12

Whenever God sends a message, always remember that the message is greater and more important than the messenger or courier. According to Psalm 119:89 , God’s Word is forever settled in Heaven. What has been settled in Heaven cannot be dismantled on earth. When Elisha sent a message through his servant to Naaman who waited outside his house, the captain of the Syrian army was disappointed (2 Kings 5:9-12).

He expected that the man of God would come to him but he did not. He expected that he would lay hands on him but he did not. He also expected him to perform some acrobatic display, at least to convince everyone that he was making attempt to cure the leper, but he did not do this. He argued that even if he had to go to wash in some river, was it not better to go to the neatest which were outside Israel?

God’s solutions do not always follow conventional methods. That God solved a particular problem in a particular way does not suggest that is the only way He would solve such problems. The bottom line is when you give God a problem to solve, also give Him the freedom to choose the mode of solving it. If you expect God to solve that problem through the method you deem best, it will be a surprise if He does not disappoint you.

“And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice” (1 Kings 19:12). When Elijah ran from Jezebel, he sought to meet with God in a cave on mount Horeb. God passed by and a great strong wind tore the mountains into pieces, then an earthquake and a fire: but God was not in any of them.

Today, many believers still feel that until they fall under the anointing or are slain in the Spirit, nothing has happened to them. They want to see some religious gymnastics! It is the presence of God and His Word that make the difference, not the gymnastics. Even some preachers do not know better. While praying for people, some of them deliberately push down those they are praying for whereas by merely speaking the Word, the anointing that will bring about the change is released.

Although laying on of hands is good and biblical, there are many blessings that will come to you through other media. All that is required is for you to release your faith. Faith is key to receiving all your blessings.

Some people fake the anointing, some its effects and others its testimonies. Don’t get caught up in any form of manipulation in the Name of the Lord.

How to please God

Posted on

 
Memorise: “By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God” (Heb 11:5)

Read: Genesis 5:21-24

When Heaven opens, you will begin to hear from above. Your spirit man will easily pick heavenly signals from that moment. The ability to hear God’s voice is so crucial to the average believer that we cannot do without it. If you can hear God’s voice, it becomes difficult for you to miss God’s guidance. One of the blessings I received when I newly became born again was the ability to hear from God.

He told me several things ahead of time, but when I made a mistake one day, He cut off the communication link. I pleaded with Him to a point of making a covenant that He should take me home today if I would backslide tomorrow. One thing you should desire and strongly seek God for this year, is the ability to hear Him.

“And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matt 3:17). When God said this, it went beyond a mere statement. This conveyed divine approval. When Heaven opens to you, you enjoy divine approval. In times past, I used to strive to satisfy men.

Today I know better. The moment you make up your mind to satisfy God, you will have peace. You will no longer fear the criticism of men. And Heaven, not the sky will be your limit. Before Jesus got God’s approval and public proclamation, He totally pleased Him. In Hebrews 11:5 and Genesis 5:24, Enoch pleased God so much that God took him. From this we learn that pleasing God brings about divine translation. Enoch pleased God and he overcame the greatest dread of men – death.

He scaled over death. If only you can please God, you will scale over the greatest, toughest and biggest problems, challenges and difficulties. Pleasing God relocates you from the realm of men to that of God. Show me a believer who is endued with power from on high and reigning over the devil, demons, the flesh and the world, and I will show you a believer who goes the extra mile to please God.

One testimony you must have is that you pleased God. There is a heavenly certificate for pleasing God. Enoch and Jesus have it. You too must. To what extent have you pleased God? If you will please God, you will care about everything He cares about. You will know His dos and don’ts. You will obey Him totally. Everyone who pleases God gets a divine upliftment. One is coming your way.

If you live this earth without Heaven’s testimonial that you pleased God, you have lived for yourself. You were created solely to please Him.

Dealing with your secret sins

Posted on

 Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another” (Rom 14:19)

Read: Romans 14:16-19

Adam was the king of the earth. His government was blissful, peaceful, glorious and prosperous, but one day, he sinned and lost that government to Satan. Then everything turned upside down. Satan’s government turned men into slaves.

Poverty, isolation, sicknesses, curses, sorrow and death became the norm. One day, God looked down and said, “We have heard of man’s government. We have seen Satan’s government: Let us have God’s government”. To effect this, He sent Jesus Christ to earth (Matt 1:20-21). The first thing Jesus did was to save people from sin, the sin that was transferred from Satan’s government, so that a new government could be established.

The government of Jesus is one of holiness. You cannot be deriving pleasure from sin and remain a part of this Kingdom. It is also a government of restoration. In Genesis 3, immediately Satan took over from Adam, the latter lost everything good and beautiful, including the Garden of Eden. But Luke 19:10 says Jesus came to seek and save the lost. Have you lost joy, peace and righteousness while under the government of Satan? You can have all restored under the Kingdom of Jesus (Rom 14:17).

When the government changed from men to Satan, communion with God was destroyed (Gen 3:9-10). Adam ran from God because he was in sin. A sinner keeps running until he deals with sin and enters the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (Proverbs 28:1).

If you want the communion which existed between you and God to be restored, examine yourself and locate areas of disobedience against God. Repent and make necessary corrections and have a divine restoration. As long as you are sweeping sins under carpet, God may not communicate with you. As long as you retain what He forbids, God can blank out on you like He did to Abraham for about 13 years because he retained Lot. Have you experienced a broken communion with God?

Today, it can be restored. Have you stopped hearing God’s voice? As you deal with its cause today, the Lord will resume Heaven – earth communication with you. Christ’s government is a government of life (Jn 10:10). Are you facing a situation of death? Is something good in your life, family, business or ministry about to die? I speak forth life into it. I stop every intrusion of death. Receive life now in Jesus’ Name. Ask God to restore what you have lost today!

Is any sin under the carpet? Expose and deal with every secret sin.

Jesus the Wonderful Counsellor

Memorise: “Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms” (Jer 51:20)

Read: Jeremiah 51:19-24

Jesus Christ is the Wonderful. The implication of this is that He is capable of introducing changes into situations and circumstances in order to obtain a different but desired result.

As the Wonderful, the limits of men is the beginning of His abilities. Have you come to the end of the road on a particular matter? Go to the Wonderful, praise and sufficiently worship Him, and invite Him to give you a pleasant surprise package. You will suddenly discover a way in your wilderness.

“Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms” (Jer 51:20). One of the reasons Jesus Christ is called the Wonderful is so that by the time He reveals Himself to us as the Wonderful, not only would our lives be full of wonders, but that He can use us as agents of His wonders. You can become the Lord’s battle axe. You can become a divine weapon in addition to the ones listed in Ephesians 6:11-18.

A brother was seeking God’s face over a period of time. One day, he dreamt that some people (angels) came to him and began to perform an operation on him. They were trying to take off his physical hand while he resisted vehemently. He thought they were enemies but he was powerless compared with their strength.

Thereafter, they replaced his hand with an iron hand before leaving. He woke up and began to examine his right hand which did not look any different from its physical form but spiritually, it was now made of iron. He was afraid but then the Holy Spirit calmed his fears and explained to Him that a transformation had just taken place to equip him for higher assignments and battles ahead.

In Mark16:17-18, Jesus says if you know Him as the Wonderful, you too will become full of signs and wonders. There is a spiritual kitting taking place. Although you may never have seen yourself wearing shoes, breastplate, belt, helmet, taking a sword, etc., yet that is how you are dressed when you completely obey Jesus and know Him as the Wonderful.

The apostles knew the Wonderful to the point that signs and wonders freely flowed from them (Acts 5:12). To what extent do you know the Wonderful? Not knowing Him as Wonderful amounts to wasting God’s graces.

Lord Jesus, reveal yourself to me as the Wonderful to the extent of making me a wonder to my generation.

Sermon: Remember me O God!

Memorise: In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good” (Eccl 11:6)

Read: Esther 6:1-10

Mordecai heard of a plan to assassinate king Ahasuerus and he exposed it. That was how the life of the king was spared. The good deed was entered into their book of record but no reward was given. One day, after his arch enemy, Haman, had concluded plans to hang him, the king became disturbed.

He could not sleep at night until he searched through their record book and discovered that he was indebted to Mordecai. He did not rest until he paid his debt. One lesson here is that every good seed, sown on good soil has an appointed date to speak. If you do good, it will speak for you. If you do evil, it will speak against you.

But why did the king forget to reward Mordecai at the appropriate time? It is because God knew that his good seed would be needed to spare his life sometime in the future. Some seeds you sow today may not give you an immediate harvest. In fact, some harvests may be divinely connected with your deliverance, salvation or even breakthrough much later in life.

This is why you need to continue to sow. You cannot tell when each sowing effort will deliver its harvest (Eccl 11:1-6). Always ask God to cause your seed to speak for you both now and in the future. Also ask God to use your seeds to avert evil from your path.

There is a day of remembrance. Every child of God is destined for greatness. Heaven has provided for everyone in God’s Kingdom to be blessed. But every- one has his or her time. There is a day of visitation. There is a day of divine remembrance. The day you are remembered for a good deed done, is when your reward for years of unpaid labour will be released.

Unfortunately, some people do not have any good thing they can be remembered for. If Dorcas had not brought joy to the widows around her, she might not have been brought back to life. Her good deeds spoke after her death (Acts 9:36-42). Good seeds are so powerful that they can become your mouth piece or advocate when you are not there. This year, ensure you touch lives meaningfully.

Sow seeds that will speak for you today. Also sow seeds that will speak for you in future. On that crucial day of need, may Heaven remember you. Have you sown a powerful seed which has not yielded any result? Don’t take offence. Mordecai was not offended that no immediate reward came to him for rescuing the king.

It is possible your seed has gone ahead of you to deliver its harvest on a day you will need it most. Just thank God.

Ask God to cause your past and present seeds to trigger for you divine remembrance.

Choosing a life partner according to Bible

Posted on Updated on

 

 By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “I will bless the LORD, who has given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons” (Psalm 16:7)

Read: Psalm 16:7-10

“O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps” (Jer 10:23). The right choice of a marriage partner is not in the one taking the decision, but in God. One very challenging choice a believer has to make is who will be his or her marriage partner.

When five brothers propose to a sister, how would she know whom to pick? What if only one brother proposes in a long time: Does that mean she should say ‘yes’ to him? This is why you should not choose by yourself, or by your senses but let God do it for you. Over the years, God has been choosing for several Christians. One thing is that when God chooses for you, you will have no regrets.

Do not expect the person chosen to be perfect. If you are not perfect, why do you want a perfect partner? It is okay to spell out conditions or qualities you desire in your partner. But God may not necessarily meet all those conditions. When God chooses for you, it is entirely in your best interest.

“For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness” (Heb 12:10). God will not give you a partner that will take you out of His presence. One way of knowing God’s choice is that after marriage, the couple draws closer to God, and walks more uprightly. But anyone who marries and afterwards backslides or grows cold on God, fellowship, or His Word, has most likely missed God’s choice.

In the same vein, when God chooses for you, it is because He wants you to end well. After all, He sees the end from the beginning. Before you say, ‘I do’ at the altar, God knows exactly how that marriage will end. When God chooses for you, He gives you a partner who truly fits you – the bone of your bone, like He did to Adam (Gen 2:23).

The truth is, not every believer can be your partner. God is the God of perfection. If you seek His face and He gives you a partner, receive the fellow with thanksgiving. Some partners prevent their spouses from fulfilling God’s plan for their lives. God will not give you a partner that will hinder you from getting to where He is taking you. When God chooses for you, He will personally be there to back you up until you succeed. Let Him choose for you today.

The state of your heart is very important to God when you ask Him to choose for you. If you are not sincere, He may remain detached.

Book of Life: I must make heaven

Posted on Updated on

 By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book” (Ex 32:33)

Read: Revelation 20:11-15

“On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king” (Est 6:1).

The story of Mordecai is an interesting one with several lessons for us today. The first thing that comes to mind is that every organized kingdom keeps records. Just as king Ahasuerus kept records of events, so does the King of kings. Heaven has lots of books out of which are some registers for human beings. Revelation 20:11-15 tells us of two sets of books – the book of life and the books of death. Everyone that is born into this world has his or her name in one of the books.

Wherever your name falls is where all your deeds will be recorded. Everyone who is born again and is still living right until time of death can be assured that his or her name is in the book of life. The moment you are washed in the blood of Jesus and become a new creature in Christ, your name enters the Lamb’s book of life (Rev 21:27). It takes your daily living to please Him to sustain your name there. If you return to sin, God has no choice but to erase the name of that fellow from this book.

Also, what will happen to anyone and where the fellow will spend eternity will be determined by which book the fellow’s name is. Every sinner’s name is in one of the books of death, hence, they will be doomed in eternal hell.

“And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book” (Ex 32:33). Even from the time of Moses, it was common knowledge that God had a book where all righteous souls are listed. Are you born again? If yes, congratulations!

It is not enough to have your name in the most important book in the universe. Keeping it there is the challenge. Satan is out to delist your name from that book. That colleague that is mounting pressure on you to compromise with sin, is actually Satan’s vehicle to delist you. Some powerful names have been delisted from that book.

Judas Iscariot and Demas once had their names in that book but were delisted. It is only when your name is there, that you will be entitled to your portion from God’s Kingdom. Do everything in your power to retain your name in this glorious book. Has your name been delisted? Re-enrol today!

Father, frustrate every known or unknown move of the enemy to delist my name from the Lamb’s Book of Life. Lord, fill this year’s Convention with Your presence, power, and miracles. Grant us journey mercies during the Convention.

How to turn your fears into faith

Posted on

 By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” (Mk 11:24)

Read: Mark 11:23-24

Apart from changing people and turning negative circumstances around, prayer can also change doubt to trust, fear into faith. You are either a doubter or a believer. You either operate by faith or fear. Every doubter is a potential believer. If you can pray, the worst doubter can become the strongest believer. Doubting Thomas is a case in point (Jn 20:24-29). He doubted the resurrection of Christ.

Even after the other disciples confirmed that the Lord truly visited them in his absence, he told them: ‘Except I see His nail pierced hands and sword pierced side, and put my finger through them, I will not believe!’ Later, Jesus visited them again and addressed his unbelief. From that time he resolved to show the world that he was a believer.

Years later, Thomas went to India and was used mightily in signs and wonders. He had turned into a believing Thomas! Is there someone who is doubting your ability to perform? Is someone finding it hard to trust you? You can turn it around by tarrying on your knees in prayer. If you can pay that price in your prayer closet, the same doubter will become your staunchest fan, supporter and heralder.

According to our reading today, prayer can change the place and power of obstacles in our way. God does not change but mountains do, when brought in contact with the appropriate change agent – prayer. In moving any mountain, you must be specific, or else its either all mountains will respond to your call, or none will.

Also, before you take on a mountain standing in your way, you must believe that its time is up, and that it has to move. Repeating the same prayer each day may be an evidence of lack of faith. If you believe that obstacles will move, all you need do is to package the prayer request, and deliver it backed with relevant scriptures only once. That is the prayer seed.

Thereafter, water the seed regularly with thanksgiving. Each time you water that seed with praises and thanksgiving, you make God a debtor. The more you do so, the more God is compelled to grant your request. You can be sure that the One who says ‘Owe no man’ will by no means break His Word. If you follow this principle and it is like it is not working, persist. It could be that you are going through a wilderness experience.

Ask God to turn every doubting Thomas in your family and church into great believers. Also ask that persecutors of the church become the Pauls of our generation.

Stop complaining, be contended

Image result for 1 Timothy 6 vs 6

1 Timothy 6 vs 6-11But godliness with contentment is great gain.

For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”. Acts 1:8

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners.

Things that help you to receive the anointing of God

  • Live holy life
  • Obedience to the Lord
  • Pursue God’s will and keep no room for self will

 

What can I do before God can anoints me?

  • Move closer to Him.
  • Doing His will without any reservation
  • Be totally obedient to God
  • Pray in the Holy Spirit
  • Worship and Praise God
  • Learn how to pray at mid night especially

 

  • The Bible clearly shows that the Kingdom of God is not about talking but practical manifestation of the power of God. 1 Corinthians 4:20: For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.

The power of the Holy Ghost as manifested by the Apostles is only bestowed on serious Christians, who are willing to put on the full armour of God.
  • It is only the power of the Holy host that can deliver you from the power of the devil. It is only the power of the Holy Spirit that can change your position from being a Christian hunted by the devil, to an overcomer.

Crush the Serpent: Genesis 3 vs 15

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall Bruise His heel. Genesis 3 vs 15-19 KJV

And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years” -Revelation 20:2 KJVImage result for Genesis 3 vs 15

  • What are the lessons for this scripture?
  • Lucifer is the Ancient Serpent
  • First whether you like it or not you have an enemy. God said I will put enmity.. between the serpent and the woman.
  • The serpent represents Satan, and the woman are descendants of Adam and Eve
  • Second, God gave the seed of Abraham and Eve, which is human beings the power to bruise the head of the serpent
  • Third, God also gave the Serpent the power to bruise the heel of man
  • Most of the afflictions we face as individuals or those faced by nation states are manifestations of various ‘bruises’ inflicted on the heels of individuals or nations by the Ancient Serpent.
  • Those familiar with the traits of the animal called the Serpent know that its strength lies in its head. Once the head of a Serpent is broken, it becomes powerless and dies instantly. By granting mankind the power to ‘bruise’ the head of the Serpent, God really gave us power to overcome the Serpent and stop all its evils in our daily life.
  • Unfortunately whereas the Serpent fully uses its power  to ‘bruise’ the heel of  mankind, the human race, particularly Christians seldom uses their divine power to ‘bruise’ the head of the Serpent. It has therefore been a one sided battle between man and the Serpent with the latter always having the upper hand. It is therefore not surprising that most Christians including those who profess to be born again still suffer under the yoke of various attacks of the devil- hunger, sickness, untimely death, crime, poverty, joblessness, marriage failures, business stagnancy, and the like.

 

Revelation 12: 7- 9 (KJV) gives more revelation on the fall of the serpent:

“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angel is cast out with him”

  • Every follower of Jesus Christ is a member of a Spiritual army against the Kingdom of Satan. Before a believer could inherit his divine blessings, he must successfully overcome the dragon and his angels here on earth, even as Michael and his angels did in Heaven. Whether you like to believe it or not, the Serpent hates you simply because you are a follower of the Way, the Truth and the Life.

 

And the Serpent is determined to frustrate and thwart the plan and purpose of God for all His children.

The Serpent is the Believers’ one and only archenemy, and toils day and night in opposition to God and his Children. Satan is stubbornly and unrepentantly opposed to the children of God, and manifests this hatred through various acts of wickedness

Your conversion to Christianity did not automatically immune you from Satanic attacks; it only redeemed you from your sins, and saved your soul from eternal damnation. You have to wage a spiritual war against the dragon and his angels here on earth, and overcome just like Michael and his angels did in Heaven, before you can manifest your divine destiny.

 

How to overcome the serpent

  • Be born again
  • Compile Deliverance scriptures and memorise them
  • Fast and pray especially at midnight
  • Speak in tongues extensively
  • Engage in spiritual warfare
  • Sing Praises to God

 

“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me”- Matt 28:18-19

James 4:7 reads: “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”.

Isaiah 27 vs.1: In that day, the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

Luke 10 vs 19 – Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

  • I challenge by fire every human agent in my household bowing down to Satan.
  • You dragon spirit bruising my leg, I break your head in Jesus name
  • I rescue my glory from the spirit of dragon, in the name of Jesus.
  • I cut off the heads of the Leviathan attacking my glory
  • Every dragon in the waters attacking my glory, be slain in Jesus mighty name
  • You the Ancient Serpent oppressing my life, I trample you to death in Jesus name
  • Every serpentine spirits delegated against my life, release me now and die in the name of Jesus
  • Every Serpent pursuing my glory, be swallowed up by the Serpent of the Lord
  • Let the terror of the Lord fall upon the army of serpents attacking me in Jesus name I pray
  • O Rock of ages, fall upon the Ancient serpent attacking my destiny.
  • Every poison of the dragon in my life, be neutralized by the blood of Jesus
  • Every wound inflicted against me by the dragon, be healed by the blood of Jesus
  • Serpentine spirits crawling in my body, come out and roast to death in Jesus name
  • Serpentine spirits afflicting me, I behead you in Jesus name
  • Serpent of the Lord, bite the powers making burnt offerings and sacrifices to Idols for my sake in Jesus name
  • Every serpentine spirit inhabiting my residence/office, I eject you by the fire of the Holy Ghost in Jesus name.
  • Every Serpent suffocating my life, I shake you off into fire in Jesus name
  • Every dragon spirit tied around my body, soul, and spirit, released me now and die in Jesus name
  • Dragon spirits attacking me through my dreams, be consumed by the fire of the Holy Ghost, in the name of Jesus
  • Every power standing as a Goliath in my Life, I bury you today in Jesus name
  • Rod of oppressor over my life, break in Jesus name
  • Evil implantation in my life, die from the roots in Jesus name
  • Every strongman seating upon my blessings, be unseated by fire in Jesus name.
  • Demon of poverty assigned against me, I arrest you in the name of Jesus
  • Power of Occult against my life, I challenge you with the blood of Jesus
  • Chain of death around my neck, break by fire in Jesus name
  • Powers digging a grave for me, replace me in the grave in Jesus name

Exodus 20 vs. 14 – Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Proverbs 5 vs. 15-20 – Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.Let them be only thine own, and not strangers’ with thee.Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?

Exodus 20 vs. 14 – Thou shalt not commit adultery.

1 kings 11 vs. 1-3: But the King Solomon loved many strange women…of the nations concerning which the Lord had said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in unto them…..and he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines, and his wives turned away his heart

Matt 5:27-28. -“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”

Commentary on Matthew 1

Posted on Updated on

          By Babatope Babalobi: + 2348035897435 babalobi@yahoo.com

Join Whatsapp prayer group

The theme of Matthew 1 is the genealogy and birth of Jesus Christ.

We can see that Jesus descended from a godly ancestry. He is the direct descendant of David and Abraham. May every ungodly ancestry in your lives or in your past be cut off in Jesus name

The Chapter also reflects the perfection of the Bible. All the ancestors of Jesus were recorded, 42 of them from Adam, even in those days when record keeping was poor. This shows the Bible is truly inspired by the Holy Spirit. See verses 1 and 42.

Jesus is also a direct descendant of King Solomon who was a son of an adulterous relationship between King David and Bathsheba, Uriah’s wife. See verse 6. These shows God’s infinite mercy. Once you confess and repent, God forgive your past sins, no matter the magnitude.

Joseph did not come together with his espoused wife -Mary, before they married. Verse 18. If Joseph and Mary had indulged in pre-marital sex, they would have lost their historical and spiritual roles in the destiny of Jesus, the Saviour.

Many people are involved in sexual relationship outside marriage these days either in form of premarital sex or extra marital sex. Youths, if you are engaged to be married, emulate the example of Joseph, avoid coming together until your wedding night.

Teenagers, flee from sexual lusts. Keep yourself. Zip up. The Holy Spirit shall strengthen you in Jesus name.

The Bible describes Joseph as a ‘Just’ man. Verse 19. Could you be described as a just man or woman? Are you a just husband, wife, or child? May Holy Spirit sharpen you to become a just person in Jesus name

The greatest lesson or message of the chapter lies in the names of son of God: He was revealed as Jesus in Matthew 1 vs. 21 – And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sinsand Emmanuel in Matthew 1 vs. 23 – Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

The lessons in Mathew 1 vs 21 is that Names are important. Jesus fulfilled his name as a Saviour, Lord, and Messiah. What does your name mean? What names did you inherit from your parents or ancestors? Do they glorify God or Satan? Cut off every evil ancestry in Jesus name.

Mary is described as a Virgin. Verse 23. Do you still treasure your virginity? Would Mary have been chosen as the ‘mother’ of Jesus if she was not a virgin. If you have been sexually active before outside marriage, you can still practice secondary abstinence. May blood of Jesus blot out your past sins

Joseph was obedient to the word of God, he followed the instruction of the Angel of God that directed him to take Mary as his wife and name the new born baby Jesus. Verse 24. Many people have lost their blessings through disobedience to divine instructions. May God kill your disobedience in Jesus name

Jesus means Saviour, from sins. There is no founder of any religion that was foretold or proclaimed himself as being able to save man from his sins.

Emmanuel means God with us. As such, Jesus is God in human flesh.

Jesus is the only man that ever lived that did not inherit the sin of Adam which brought destruction to the world; though he is a descendant of Abraham, his ‘biological’ father was the Holy Ghost through which he was conceived. Joseph was really his adopted father because he never knew Mary.

Jesus can save man from sin because he was not born a sinner. No other religion could save from sin because their founders were born of flesh and blood, inherited sin and are sinful themselves.

The key lesson of Mathew 1 is that anytime you call on Jesus, you are calling God and Saviour.

Call upon Jesus to save you right now.

  7. Elisha requested for and received a double portion of the Spirit of Elijah (2Kings 2:9) and he was able to do twice as much miracle as his boss. Elijah did 16 miracles, Elisha 32. And some of the miracles of Elisha were as twice great. Elijah shut the Heavens for 3 and ½ years (James 5:17), Elisha for 7 years (2 Kings 8:1).
  8. Even our Lord Jesus Christ did not perform any miracle before the Holy Ghost descended on him in a bodily shape like a dove upon him (Luke 3:22), at the banks of River Jordan. It was after this divine impartation that he was led to the wilderness full of the Holy Spirit, and returned to Galilee in power of the Holy Ghost to begin his miracles marked with signs and wonders.

How to celebrate Valentine’s day: Tips for Teenagers, Youths, and Singles

Be not deceived, evil communications corrupt good manners- 1 Corinthians 15 vs. 33

 

  • These days, Valentine’s Day brings to the hearts of singles ideas on love, romance, lusts, sex, kisses, and affections
  • Saint Valentine’s Day has been turned into a sexual festival….a day for illicit sexual activity
  • Here are simple rules for singles to ensure they are not caught off guard, and don’t commit sin in the name of expressing love on Valentine’s Day.

Image result for valentine

  1. Dedicate the day to God and ask the Holy Spirit how you should celebrate it.
  2. Make new friends in your working places and schools.
  3. Appreciate your old friends by sending them gifts.
  4. Appreciate your parents and those that have helped you in one way or the other in life, by sending love notes or gifts.
  5. If you need to go for a drink or food in a restaurant, ensure you are in good company and your safety/holiness is not compromised.
  6. Most importantly, refrain from any associations or acts that may cause you to sin. Either by what you drink, what you see, or where you go. Avoid alcoholic drinks and x-ray films.
  7. Remember…love is not best expressed through casual or illicit sex.
  8. Be a Christian and avoid any sexual sin in the name of expressing love or lust on Valentine’s day.
  9. If you are single, most likely your friend has romantic ideas on Valentine’s Day. Discuss this with him/her openly and resolve that both of you will not indulge in any ungodly romantic or sexual activity today and thereafter.
  10. Set the boundaries for expressing love with your friend. Don’t assume he or she knows. If you are a virgin, don’t give out your virginity because you are celebrating Valentine’s day and you want to make your friend happy.
  11. Be vigilant and watch where you go, and whom you are with alone. Watch out, you may be dis virgined today, if you wish. Lust is in the air.
  12. Maintain your sexual purity and abstinence until marriage.
  13. Watch out for date raping. Don’t go out with anyone you do not trust, and if you must go out with your single partner, watch where you go, avoid being alone with the opposite sex, and also avoid staying together in lonely places.
  14. Express love today, not lust. Expressing love through out of marriage sex is a sin.
  15. Most guys plan to have sex with their girlfriends today, if it is possible. Be on the alert.
  16. Avoid environments that promote ungodliness. This includes night clubs, discos, and sex shows.
  17. The best place to spend Valentine’s Day is the presence of God. God is the greatest Valentine who gave us his only begotten son for our salvation. Arrange to be in the presence of God- either Church or fellowship and thank God for His love on you.

 

John 3 vs 16-For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Image result for Be not deceived, evil communications corrupt good manners- 1 Corinthians 15 vs. 33

  1. If you do not have anyone that you can refer to as a Valentine, remember God is the greatest Valentine you can ever have. He is the greatest lover. Pour you love on him, with songs of thanksgiving.
  2. Compose a poem for Jesus. Make Jesus your Val.
  3. Jesus be my Val.

Whoever rebels against your command and does not heed your words, in all that you command him, shall be put to death. Only be strong and of good courage.” – Joshua 1 vs. 18

Church officers and leaders : Who is a Bishop?

Posted on Updated on

Bible study: Offices in the Church: Who is a Bishop?

Read 1 Timothy 3 vs. 1-7; Titus 1 vs 6-9; Ephesians 4:11; Acts 20:28

By Babatope Babalobi

 

Ephesians 4:11

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

 

Acts 20:28 – Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

 

1 Timothy 3 vs. 1-7

This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.

A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Image result for 1 Timothy 3 vs. 1-7;

Titus 1 vs 6-9;

If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

 

 

  1. There are five offices in the New Testament church as outlined by Apostle Paul. The offices according to hierarchy are:
  • Apostles
  • Prophets
  • Evangelists
  • Pastors
  • Teachers

 

  1. One of the offices is Bishop also referred to as Overseers in the Bible
  2. Bishop is not recognised as a special office in the Bible. In several places where the term is used in the Bible, it refers to someone or anybody who preaches.
  3. In several places in the Bible the word Bishop is used interchangeably with Pastors, Servants, Overseers and Elders.
  4. Unfortunately, some Churches or ministers of God, these days have unduly magnified the office of the Bishop because they want to be specially recognized.
  5. Bishops are preachers and Deacons are servants in the church
  6. A Bishop teaches.
  7. A Deacon executes the instructions of Bishops
  8. Bishops are preachers and teachers of the word
  9. Deacons are administrators and assistants of Bishops.
  10. Any person that describes himself as a Bishop, know that he is simply a Pastor or Teacher of the word
  11. There are several titles in the present day local church that are not mentioned in the Bible. This includes Pope, Archbishop, General Overseer, Right Reverent, Reverend Father, Reverend, Cardinal, Father, Very Right Reverend, Reverend, Patriarch etc
  12. All these positions are human creations, no more no less.
  13. There are also many other honorific titles like Daddy G.O. and Mummy G.O. While our Church leaders deserve utmost respect, and there may be nothing wrong in using these titles according to local traditions to accord respect to elders, but the truth still remains that thy are all human creations

Duties of a Bishop or Overseer

  1. To perfect the saints in the way of the Lord
  2. To edify the Church to the glory of God
  3. Feed the congregation the word of God

 

Qualifications  of a Bishop or Overseer  or Pastor

  1. Blameless- perfect
  2. Must be married
  3. A monogamist. Husband of one wife. A polygamist cannot be a Bishop
  4. Wise, Watchful, and intelligent
  5. Humble, temperate, patient.
  6. Well mannered, not unruly
  7. Caring, loving, and willing to help others
  8. Passionate and able to teach the word of God
  9. Not a drunkard
  10. Not quarrelsome, gentle
  11. Honest, not covetous, not greedy, not a lover of ill-gotten money
  12. Patient
  13. Peacemaker
  14. A responsible husband
  15. A responsible and discipled father
  16. His children must not be vagabonds
  17. Not a new church member or convert. Should be tested and trusted
  18. Not proud of arrogant
  19. Easy going
  20. Should have good testimonies from people
  21. Blameless
  22. Not self-willed or self-centred, un selfish
  23. Should have godly friends
  24. Sincere and just
  25. Holy, not committing sins
  26. Well-grounded in the word of God
  27. Not ashamed to preach or teach the gospel
  28. Good Bible teacher and speaker

 

Summary

The position of a Bishop much revered in the present day Church is equivalent to that of an Overseer, or a Pastor.

 

Prayer:  Holy Spirit, give me the heart of a Bishop in Jesus name

Bible study: Shake off the Beast

Reference Text: Acts 28 vs. 1-5- 1 Once we were safe on shore, we learned that we were on the island of Malta. 2 The people of the island were very kind to us. It was cold and rainy, so they built a fire on the shore to welcome us.

3 As Paul gathered an armful of sticks and was laying them on the fire, a poisonous snake, driven out by the heat, bit him on the hand. 4 The people of the island saw it hanging from his hand and said to each other, “A murderer, no doubt! Though he escaped the sea, justice will not permit him to live.” 5 But Paul shook off the snake into the fire and was unharmed.

1And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita.

2And the barbarous people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.

3And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.

4And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.

5And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.

  1. The background to this incident was that Paul and 275 other people on board a ship going to Rome, have escaped a 14 day windstorm  and thunderstorm  on high sea, that would have drown the ship and all the occupants; and they have now arrived safely at an Island called Melita.
  2. Paul was being taken to Rome to face trial for preaching the gospel.
  3. Just as they were settling down in Melita island,, a big snake ran out of a log of wood and fastened itself on the hand of Paul.
  4. Why  did the snake attack Paul, out of the 276 that escaped from the sea storm and arrived at the Island?
  5. Targeted attacks against me, attack your senders in Jesus name
  6. The beast in the verses, is another word for the Snake, and this symbolises Satan.
  7. Just like the Beast, pursued Paul to Melita, some of us are still being pursued day and night by various Beasts.
  8. Pharaohs pursuing my journey to Canaan land, shake off to the Red sea in Jesus
  9. Paul was a persecutor of Christians before but Satan started pursuing him after he started serving Christ
  10. Every dark power pursuing me since birth, shake off in Jesus name
  11. The snake that fastened itself against Paul stands for the spirit of death, but Paul shook it off
  12. Venomous beasts, assigned to kill me shake off in Jesus name

Posted on

By Babatope Babalobi babalobi@yahoo.com +2348035897435

 

Genesis 37 vs 18- 18 When Joseph’s brothers saw him coming, they recognized him in the distance. As he approached, they made plans to kill him. 19 “Here comes the dreamer!” they said. 20 “Come on, let’s kill him and throw him into one of these cisterns. We can tell our father, ‘A wild animal has eaten him.’ Then we’ll see what becomes of his dreams!”

Genesis 42 vs 6– And Joseph was the governor over the land, and he it was that sold to all the people of the land: and Joseph’s brethren came, and bowed down themselves before him with their faces to the earth

Daniel 1  vs. 16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered, “Your Majesty, we will not try to defend ourselves. 17 If the God whom we serve is able to save us from the blazing furnace and from your power, then he will.[a] 18 But even if he doesn’t, Your Majesty may be sure that we will not worship your god, and we will not bow down to the gold statue that you have set up.”

Daniel 2 vs 46 46 Then King Nebuchadnezzar bowed to the ground and gave orders for sacrifices and offerings to be made to Daniel.

 

Philippians- 2 vs 9-11Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor
and gave him the name above all other names,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

 

What is Bow?

  1. To submit
  2. Capitulate
  3. Yield
  4. Surrender
  5. Resign
  6. Crush
  7. Bend

 

The word ‘Bow’ is used in two dimensions in the Bible. Light refused to bow down to darkness; and darkness bowed down to light.
