Memory Verse: 1 Corinthians 1:27 “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.

Bible commentary: 1 Corinthians 1

  1. The two major themes of 1 Corinthians 1 are disunity in church and wisdom of God
  2. This book was written by Paul who introduced himself as an Apostle called and ordained by God
  3. Verse 2: Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours
  4. Paul addressed Christian as saints….Saint in English connotes holiness, righteousness, virtuousness and heavenly consciousness. Do you act and behave as a Saint?
  5. Verse 5: That in everything ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;
  6. Paul says by virtue of being Saints, every Christians has been given the grace to be rich in utterance and knowledge. Are you lacking utterance or knowledge then cry to God because it is your divine saintly right
  7. Verse 8: Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  8. Paul mentioned another quality of Saints, you should be blameless. Are you blameless at home, office, business, and church? Do you act to be blameless?
  9. Verse 10: Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
  10. Paul preached against divisions in the church. Nowadays churches are not only divided in denominations but there are deep divisions within denominations and each congregation.
  11. There are divisions among Pastors, Women, Men, General overseers, and even among units in churches.
  12. Holy Spirit reunite the Church in Jesus name.
  13. Verse 12: Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
  14. Paul derided the Corinthians for following Apostles rather than following Christ. The early Christians had divided themselves between Paul, Apollos and Cephas.
  15. Just like in those days, many Christians are following Preachers, Pastors and General Overseers rather than Jesus. Many Christians believe in their Pastors more than Jesus and believe their church doctrines more than the Bible.
  16. God deliver me from man-made gods in Pastor’s cloak.
  17. Verse 13: Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?
  18. Paul asked a very portent question. Is Christ divided? Men have divided the gospel and church for selfish reasons. The gospel remains one, but it has been artificially divided
  19. Verse 17: For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
  20. Paul states what should be the vision of every Christian…. For Christ sent me to preach the gospel.
  21. Why are you a Christian? What is your ambition in the church? To get business opportunities, get a church title, get a man or lady to marry or receive financial help?
  22. Here Paul says your focus in and outside the church should be primarily to preach the gospel
  23. Verse 19-20: For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
  24. We are to rely on the wisdom of God rather than wisdom of the world. God promises to destroy the wisdom of the world turn it into foolishness, and save the world by His word, which they world considers ‘foolishness’. Implying no one can be saved by the wisdom of the world, rather we can only be saved by the word of God.

  1. The chapter discusses importance of spiritual gifts of prophesy and speaking in tongues in edifying the church.
  2. Verse 1: Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy
  3. Gift of prophesy is more important than gift of speaking in tongues.
  4. No matter your anointing or spiritual gift, if you don’t love your neighbour or practice/demonstrate love, you are empty.
  5. Practice love. Be loving first, before desiring spiritual gifts.
  6. Every Christian should desire spiritual gifts. It is not meant for Pastors alone.
  7. Verse 2: For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries
  8. When u are speaking in tongues, you are communicating with God not men.
  9. When you are praying in the spirit no man understands what you are saying.
  10. When you are praying in the spirit the enemy is confused.
  11. When you are praying in the spirit the enemy becomes deaf and dumb.
  12. When you are praying in the spirit is not your body that is praying it is the Holy spirit that is praying through you.Image result for 1 Corinthians 14
  13. Verse 3: But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.
  14. When you speaking in tongues you are speaking the mind of Holy Spirit to God, but when you prophesy, you are speaking the mind of God to men.
  15. Verse 4: He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.
  16. Speaking in tongues makes you a stronger Christian, prophesying helps the church rather than men.
  17. The gift of prophecy is a greater gift and edifies the church more than the gift of speaking in tongues.
  18. It is possible to interpret tongues, unfortunately most people can speak in tongues but very few people can interpret tongue. As such this gift does not edify the church.
  19. Verse 9: So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air.
  20. If anyone is speaking in tongues and is not interpreting or no one can interpret in the church; he is on his own as the church is not edified as no one understands what he us saying
  21. As many Christians that can speak in tongues should also pray for the gift of interpreting tongues, to understand the mysteries being uttered by the Holy spirit
  22. Verse 15: What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
  23. You can pray and sing both in tongues.
  24. Verse 18: I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all
  25. Apostle Paul was a master in speaking in tongues, and boosted no one else can match him in speaking in tongues.
  26. Verse 19: Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.
  27. If you speak in tongues and cannot interpret it is better you speak in understanding that every can hear and interpret.
  28. Speaking is a sign of power and presence of God for unbelievers. Prophesying is a sign of the presence and power of God for believers.
  29. Verse 23: therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?
  30. If the whole congregation is speaking in tongues in public and there is no interpretation, unbelievers may accuse them of madness
  31. Verse 25: And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth
  32. Prophesying reveals deep secrets of every man.
  33. It is better for two or three members of the church to speak in tongues and another person is interpreting than for the whole congregation to be speaking in tongues at the same time and no one to interpret.
  34. 27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.
  35. Manifestation of spiritual gifts must be done in orderliness.People should prophesy or announce revelation or interpret tongues one by one.
  36. Verse 32-33: And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
  37. Manifestation of spiritual gifts should not generate confusion and people should respect one another as the same spirit is in everyone with spirit gifts. And the Holy spirit can’t be speaking through two people at the same time or speaking contrary things through several people at same time
  38. 39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.
  39. Paul ends by saying he does not forbid .speaking in tongues in churches and no one should forbid it. But Christians should also desire the gift of prophesy.

Bible Commentary on 2 Samuel 23

Posted on

Babatope Babalobi: + 2348035897435 babalobi@yahoo.com

  1. This chapter are the words of David, a man after God’s heart and one of the greatest exemplary characters in the Bible.
  2. David was a man that lived by the Spirit, he was highly anointed and all his actions were guided by the Holy Spirit.
  3. May we learn to rely on the Holy Spirit for all our undertakings in Jesus nameImage result for 2 samuel 23
  4. Holy Spirit make me a man of the Spirit in Jesus name -vs. 1
  5. David also said the word of God was always on his tongue and this is one of the secrets of his numerous successes- vs. 2
  6. Is the word of God always on your tongue? As stated in Joshua 1 vs. 8, you cannot achieve success unless you meditate on the word day and night.
  7. The word made David successful. If you wish to achieve success, let the word, not gossips, always be on your tongue.
  8. Word of God stick to my tongue, mouth, brain, eyes and memory in Jesus name.
  9. David also stated a quality in leadership in vs. 3.
  10. According to him, those in leadership must be just and fear God.
  11. May the fear of God arrest our political leaders in Jesus name.
  12. Everyone is a leader in homes, offices, business and in every assignment we are undertaking.
  13. Holy Spirit make me a just leader today in Jesus name.
  14. Fear of God possess me, arrest me, consume me in Jesus name.
  15. Lastly we see that David constituted a team of highly skilled and mighty, courageous, bold and fearless mighty men. They were thirty in all but three of them, Eleazer son of Dodo the Ahonite, Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite and Adino the Eznite.
  16. The Exploits of the thirty mighty men including the chief three as stated in 2 Samuel 23 v 8-39
  17. What are the lessons here?
  • You cannot be great unless you do mighty acts.
  • You cannot be remembered unless you are mighty.
  • You cannot make history unless you are extraordinary. The people who followed David were more than thirty but thirty of them were recognized in the Bible.

 

  • Most importantly, your success and greatness is determined by the quality of your assistants.
  • If you have poor quality footballers you may not win the match. You need quality players to win a trophy.
  1. Holy Spirit gives me quality assistants, workers, helpers and church members in Jesus name.

2 Corinthians 11:23-33 King James Version (KJV)

23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.

25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;

26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

28 Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.

29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?

30 If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.

31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.

32 In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me:

33 And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.

  1. Paul was perhaps the most persecuted  Apostle
  2. He was imprisoned, flogged, and exposed to death more than any other Apostle
  3. Five times he was flogged 39 times by the Jews for preaching the gospel.

  9. Apostle Paul suffered many dangers and risks on the sea, in the hands of robbers, by fellow Hebrews, in the wilderness, on the sea, and among unbelievers.
  10. He went for many days without water and food, not because he was fasting but there was no food or water to drink during his missionary journey
  11. Apostle Paul was a man like you and me
  12. The question the Holy Spirit is asking you today, is what are you doing for me my son and daughter?
  13. He was always on the road and exposed to extremes of weather- cold and hot.
  14. He was always on marathon fasts
  15. For the sake of the gospel Paul decided not to marry
  16. For the sake of the gospel Paul decided not to have children
  17. For the sake of the gospel Paul decided to be a celibate
  18. WHAT ARE YOU 👆DOING FOR THE SAKE OF THE GOSPEL?
  19. In all these he did not make a financial demand on the churches….He still managed to work and sent offerings to the churches.
  20. He had a right to demand offerings and tithes from the Church, rather he was the one sending offerings to the church
  21. He had a right to demand offerings and tithes from the Church, rather he worked with his hands to earn a living not to be a burden on the church
  22. I receive the spirit of Apostle Paul in Jesus name
  23. I receive the power of Apostle Paul in Jesus name
  24. I receive the mind of Apostle Paul in Jesus name
  25. Paul suffered weaknesses as a result of his afflictions.
  26. Paul suffered sicknesses as a result of his afflictions.
  27. Paul  was once imprisoned in Damascus, and he escaped through a window by  a basket.
  28. Apostle Paul placed a curse on himself if he refuses to preach the gospel
  29. Holy Spirit prayed..Give me souls or I die
  30. Today, the Holy Spirit is looking around for new Pauls
  31. Make me a Paul Holy Spirit
  32. Turn me to a Paul Holy Spirit
  33. Anoint me like Paul Holy Spirit
  34. Strengthen me like Paul Holy Spirit
  35. The Saul in me, turn to Paul in Jesus name
  36. The Saul in me die, the Paul in me come alive in Jesus name
  37. I am the Paul of this generation in Jesus name

  1. The Second Epistle of Paul to Timothy has four chapters
  2. We shall study chapter 1Image result for Bible study: 2 Timothy1
  3. This book was written by Paul to Timothy who he described in Chapter 1 vs 2 as his beloved son. The contemporary practice of having spiritual fathers and sons is therefore biblical.
  4. May God give you a Spiritual father in the order and spirit of Paul in Jesus name
  5. May God give you spiritual sons or children in the order and spirit of Timothy in Jesus name
  6. May your spiritual father not lead you astray in Jesus name
  7. Chapter 1 also hints qualities of spiritual fathers. Apart from counselling, and guiding their spiritual children, a good spiritual father always intercedes for his spiritual children.
  8. Paul said he is constantly interceding in prayers – verse 3, for his spiritual son- Timothy. These days spiritual father are more interested in what they can gain financially from their spiritual children, rather than building them up spiritually and standing in gap for them in prayers
  9. May the Holy Spirit dissociate you from every fake spiritual father in Jesus name
  10. I dissociate myself from every wrong spiritual father in Jesus name
  11. Holy Spirit lead me to a spiritual father you desire for me in Jesus name
  12. In verse 5, we see that one of the ways we can receive the Holy Spirit is by the laying of hands. Timothy received the Holy Spirit when Paul laid hands on him
  13. May God lay his invisible hands on you, receive the Holy Spirit in Jesus name
  14. Verse 7 is a memory verse..God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-control
  15. Christians should be filled with the Holy Spirit, manifest the supernatural power of God, be bold and courageous, confident of who they are in God, love their neighbours, and have self-control of worldly lusts
  16. I cast out the spirit of fear in you in Jesus name
  17. I cast out the spirit of greed in you in Jesus name
  18. Receive the faith of Joshua in Jesus name
  19. Receive the power of Samson and Paul in Jesus name
  20. In verse 8 Paul encourages Christians to be willing to suffer for the spread of the gospel. Christianity is not just about attending church services, `entertainment, dancing, but also taking the cross of Jesus and suffering its shame and glory.
  21. In verse 10, we were reminded of one of the missions of Jesus Christ, to pay for the Adamic sin, and abolish death.
  22. I shall not die prematurely in Jesus name
  23. I shall live and reign for ever with Christ in heaven in Jesus name
  24. In verse 11, Paul describes himself as an Apostle, Teacher, and Preacher.
  25. Holy Spirit train me and make me an Apostle, Teacher, and Preacher of the gospel in Jesus name
  26. In verse 16, we heard of the household of Onesiphorus who was always refreshing, supporting, identifying, and partnering with Paul’s ministry.
  27. May your household refresh men of God in Jesus name
  28. May God bless every household refreshing Save the World ministry and May God raise more Onesiphorus for Save the World ministry in Jesus name
  29. Holy Spirit give me the vision and ministry of the household of Onesiphorus in Jesus name#

Marriage partner: Knowing Gods will

Posted on

 By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy” (Jas 3:17)

Read: James 3:17-18

When God guides you regarding His choice in marriage, even if you could not recognize your partner at first sight, He will use other ways to get you to know the fellow. He can speak to you through the inner voice or witness (1 Kings 19:12). If you are too noisy or too busy to listen inwards, you may not hear this voice. He can also use the audible voice (1 Sam 3:4-7). This voice is loud enough to arrest your attention, or get you thinking somebody was around the corner talking to you. God can also use dreams and visions.

Ensure you subject whatever you hear or see to the written Word of God. If it goes contrary to the Bible, then there is no light in it (Isaiah 8:20). God cannot contradict His Word.

Another way God guides is through the peace test (Jas 3:17). If you think of taking the person in question as your wife or husband, how do you feel deep inside you? If you feel disturbed, then it’s most likely the wrong choice. But if you feel an inner peace concerning the fellow, he or she might just be the right partner.

One most reliable way God can lead you to your partner is by giving you specific scriptures, or using scriptures to answer you. While praying on the issue, a verse or two could drop in your spirit. Write them down and check them up to know what they are saying.

Each of these ways could be manipulated by Satan, hence you must judge them by the Bible and prayer. Another way God guides is by using others to confirm what He has already told you. In this way, He can use different people – known and unknown to confirm the choice. When several unrelated people are saying the same thing, God could be behind the message.

In addition, He can use children, whole families or prayer partners to confirm the fellow. Usually, these people will only be confirming what God has already told you. Similarly, never allow anybody to decide for you. God can also guide you through a word of prophecy. How sensitive are you to God’s leading? As you submit to Him today, He will lead you to your rightful partner in Jesus’ Name. If you desire God’s will, you will surely get it. Pray for it.

Ask God to liberate homosexuals and lesbians from spiritual bondage so that they can embrace His salvation.

Prayer: How to hear from God

Posted on Updated on

 

 By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “And now, Lord, what wait I for? My hope is in thee” (Ps 39:7)

Read: Psalm 42:3-5

Prayer cannot change God but it can change people, circumstances and turn doubt into trust, fear into faith. Prayer can also move obstacles and turn weakness into strength. As you pray this season, may these possibilities of prayer be your personal experience. Another thing prayer can do is change hopelessness to hope. When you enter God’s presence and pray, if your hope was lost, it would suddenly be replaced.

How is this possible? Each time you pray, you also have the opportunity to hear from God. Many of us see prayer as a one-way traffic, hence we hardly receive what we should in His presence. When you pray, always create time to listen for feedback. Have you ever visited your bosom friend, and you did all the talking without the fellow contributing?

As soon as some say Amen, they are off. They do not even give God the opportunity to respond. He might want to tell you that the problem is not with your wife, or staff but with you.

“And now, Lord, what wait I for? My hope is in thee” (Ps 39:7). God is the source of hope. Whenever you lose hope on any issue, go to Him for restoration. Prayer is the channel through which hope is restored to you. A brother was involved in a particular business.

Although he earned a living through it, he was however unhappy doing it. He could not tell many people exactly what he was doing. When he met customers and told them that he was a believer, they would ask: ‘If you are a Christian, why are you into the sale of this particular product?’ He was disturbed but remembered he got God’s approval as well as sought counsel from his pastor before entering into it some years before.

At some point, he began to seek God’s face for a change. He took his hopeless situation to God in the place of prayer and told God to bring about a change. He said, “Lord, just as it is a thing of shame to tell people what I do for a living today, give me something to do that I can be proud to tell everyone about”. He kept praying.

Today, what God gave Him to do is so special and appreciated all over the world, that he finds himself hiding it from people so that they do not hero worship him. God moved him from one extreme to another. There is a user of this Devotional who is ashamed of what he or she is doing but feels hopeless about it. Your change has come. Something honorable is replacing the former job. Remember to thank God and testify of it.

Ask God to address the root cause of your secret tears and regrets.

Is it right to be angry with God

Posted on

 By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherd of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?” (Is 45:9)

Read: 2 Kings 2:13-14

“Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherd of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?” (Is 45:9).

In 2 Kings 5:11-12, when Elisha did not meet any of Naaman’s expectations, Naaman blew his top. In his rage, he set out to return to his home country, but for the timely intervention of his servant. Anyone who is angry with God is merely wasting his time. It is very dangerous to be angry with God or His servant.

Some people are angry with God because He has not answered some of their prayers. It is only a fool who will be angry with the Almighty God. It is possible you have been tempted to be angry with God at one time or the other. Whenever this temptation comes, know that your miracle is at your door step.

The devil has seen the miracle being released from Heaven, and so he tries to prevent you by sowing seeds of doubts and anger in your heart. No matter how bad things appear, never get angry at the only One who can help you.

Naaman compared the rivers in Syria with river Jordan. Due to the operations of false prophets, several rivers where their victims are washed, have become demon transferring locations. Anyone who asks you to bathe by the river before your problem would be solved is a false prophet. They will end up turning that single problem into a hydra-headed monster. God had a reason for choosing river Jordan. This is one river that had witnessed several miraculous encounters.

In Joshua 3:14-17, this river parted for Joshua when it contacted the anointing of Moses that was transferred to Joshua. Also, it parted for Elijah (2 Kings 2:6-8) and Elisha (2 Kings 2:13-14). Much later, it was in this same river that the Lord Jesus Christ was baptized and as He came out, the Heavens opened unto Him (Matt 3:13-17).

Whenever God asks you to do something in a particular way, even when you do not understand, do it as long as you are sure it is God. His choice may not always be popular, but you can never get something better. Today, you do not need to go to river Jordan but to the fountain filled with the blood of Jesus.

In which areas have you been angry with God or holding a grudge against Him? Repent and settle with Him now. He who fight God is a loser.

Bible study: Genesis 1

Genesis 1 vs. 2-3 – The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was[a] on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

  1. This is the first chapter of the Bible where God is introduced as the Creator. If He is still creator, that means He can recreate. May God recreate anything that is not working well in your life in Jesus name
  2. Several Christians are undergoing various afflictions such as sickness, debt, and failures
  3. You may be one of them, and your life may look stagnant, void and the future may look bleak now
  4. The whole earth was like that once upon a time, but God spoke the word, and the darkness of the earth give way to light
  5. Learn to speak the Word of God to your situations
  6. I speak the word of God to your situations, let every darkness disappear, and let there be light in marriage, finances, career, family and homes in Jesus name
  7. God did not perform the miracle of Genesis 1 without the help of the Holy Spirit. There was void ness and darkness, yet the Holy Spirit was moving around.
  8. You need to invoke that same power of the Holy Spirit to ensure every darkness in your life gives way to light.
  9. Invite the Spirit of God move over you and help you to succeed in Jesus name

Genesis 1 vs.27 –So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

  1. God created male and female.
  1. If God did not intend male and female to cohabit and reproduce themselves through heterosexual intercourse, He would had created male alone.
  2. Homosexuality is out of the plan of God.
  3. Homosexuality is a sin, if you are one repent and be saved.

 

Genesis 1 vs. 28 – Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

There are several lessons of this passage:

  1. You have been blessed by God before you were born
  2. If God has blessed, you no man can curse you
  3. God gave you five commandments for your life
  • Be fruitful
  • Multiply
  • Fill the earth
  • Subdue it
  • Have dominion.

 

  1. Be fruitful:Fruitfulness means being productive. Fruitfulness means doing something profitable. Fruitfulness means being a blessing to yourself, your family and to others.
  2. I curse every seed of unfruitfulness in your life and speak to the labour of your hands to bear fruits in Jesus name.
  3. Multiply:Multiplication is geometric increase. The mind of God for us is not to increase in numbers by two or three but to multiply in leaps.
  4. When Jesus turned the bread meant for one person into food eaten by five thousand with leftovers, the power of multiplication was at work.
  5. I provoke the divine power of multiplication to manifest in your situation in Jesus name.
  6. I speak woe to the spirit of snail speed over your life and command a speedy increase in Jesus name.
  7. Fill the earth: Filling the earth means our star should shine across the earth to the glory of God. Christians are supposed to be champions rather than losers, players rather than spectators, news makers rather than news readers. We need to work hard, be productive and pray towards achieving this goal.
  8. I speak success, excellence and distinction to every work of your hands and break limits and restrictions to your divine manifestation in Jesus name
  9. Subdue: Subdue means we need to overcome challenges. We need to overcome storms. We need to break the chains of oppression and walk in liberty. This calls for divine knowledge, understanding and wisdom
  10. David was able to subdue Goliath. God is calling us to subdue sin, subdue poverty, subdue sickness and subdue failure.
  11. I pray that the anointing to subdue every contrary situation shall fall on us in Jesus name
  12. Dominate: Christians are meant to be Kings and Queens. Dominion means comfort, splendour, peace, joy and victory. Christians are Christ ambassadors on earth and overcomers or conquerors; as such we should manifest these divine attributes
  13. The impartation to dominate life challenging situations, receive it today in Jesus name
  14. Before a Christian can fulfil these divine attributes – Replenish, Multiply, Subdue and Dominate, he/she must be a child of God
  15. I encourage you to dedicate and surrender your life to Christ today, flee from all sins, live in complete holiness, serve God and as you do that, divine power to multiply, replenish, subdue and dominate shall fall on you in Jesus name.
  16. I activate the fivefold blessings of God over your life in Jesus name
  17. Blessings shall pursue and overtake you from today in Jesus name

Genesis 1 vs. 31 – Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So, the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

  1. The word of God makes us to realize that all things God created are good
  2. God does not create evil unless it is to punish anyone that challenges His powers and disobeyed His laws
  3. If you see any evil around you or experience any evil, know surely that this is from the devil not God
  4. You need to stand against any evil, reject it, cancel it and pray against it
  5. Don’t allow yourself to be cheated by the devil who sponsors and spreads evil
  6. I rebuke and speak against every evil works against your life in Jesus name
  7. Let goodness and mercy pursue you daily in Jesus name.

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.

  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

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.

 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.

Good Friday message: Jesus wept

Posted on

John 11 vs. 35 – Jesus wept, Jesus is weeping.

  1. “Jesus Wept”, is the shortest verse of the Holy Bible, and it describes the feeling of Jesus when he saw two of his disciples-Martha and Mary weeping over the death of their brother-Lazarus. Several Jews were also gathered weeping and mourning over Lazarus’s death..
  2. Jesus wept and He is still weeping because Christians have abandoned the word for the world.
  3. May His blood cut you off from the world today in Jesus name
  4. Jesus wept on the road to Calvary and He is still weeping because the church He left behind is winning members rather than winning souls.
  5. May the Spirit of God turn you into a soul winner in Jesus name
  6. Jesus wept and He is still weeping because the only message He is hearing from the churches is about money, money, money and money rather than heaven, heaven, heaven and heaven

  1. May you become heaven focussed from today in Jesus name
  2. May the god of mammon not rejoice over your soul in Jesus name

  6. Jesus wept because the messages of sin, holiness, righteousness, and purity has disappeared from the pulpit, replaced by the message of grace, prosperity, and breakthroughs

  9. Jesus wept and He is still weeping because He was crucified on the cross over 2000 years ago, many people are still crucifying Him by denying him, disobeying His teachings, forsaking the gospel.

  2. Your old man shall be crucified on the cross today in Jesus name

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.

  12. Covetousness is the spirit of greed. Many ladies have very good clothes and shoes that they have not worn in a year in a year in their wardrobes yet they complain that they don’t have the latest fashion. Keep functional clothes and shoes and give the others away to the needy.

  1. Focus on needs not luxuries

Luke 12 vs. 15, 21 –  15And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth

Phillipians 4 vs 12-12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

  1. Serve God

Psalm 37 vs 4- 3  4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

  1. DON’T COMMIT SIN TO ACQUIRE WEALTH. 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.
  2. PURSUE HOLINESS-I TIMOTHY 6 VD 1 TIM 6 VS 11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

IF GOD DOES NOT DESERVE THANKS FOR WHAT YOU HAVE …YOU DONT DESERVE TO GET MORE FROM HIM

Thank God for what you have, and He will do more for you.

How do you receive the anointing that breaks yokes?

Image result for 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

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?

  • Be a friend of God.
  • 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 world is waiting for Christians to show forth the power and glory of God. It is time for Preachers to stop story telling, and start manifesting the power of God to change the lives of the congregation.
  • For ages, believers and unbelievers have heard that Jesus is Lord, what they are now demanding is signs and wonders to prove this assertion for them to belief. 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

Posted on Updated on

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

Posted on Updated on

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

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.
