Marriage partner: Knowing Gods will

Posted on

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

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.

How to please God

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

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.

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.

Choosing a life partner according to Bible

Posted on Updated on

 

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

Read: Psalm 16:7-10

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Book of Life: I must make heaven

Posted on Updated on

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

Read: Revelation 20:11-15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How to turn your fears into faith

Posted on

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

Read: Mark 11:23-24

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Good Friday message: Jesus wept

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..

  5. May the Spirit of God turn you into a soul winner in Jesus name

Bible study: Shake off the Beast

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  1. The background to this incident was that Paul and 275 other people on board a ship going to Rome, have escaped a 14 day windstorm  and thunderstorm  on high sea, that would have drown the ship and all the occupants; and they have now arrived safely at an Island called Melita.
  2. Paul was being taken to Rome to face trial for preaching the gospel.
  3. Just as they were settling down in Melita island,, a big snake ran out of a log of wood and fastened itself on the hand of Paul.
  4. Why  did the snake attack Paul, out of the 276 that escaped from the sea storm and arrived at the Island?
  5. Targeted attacks against me, attack your senders in Jesus name
  6. The beast in the verses, is another word for the Snake, and this symbolises Satan.
  7. Just like the Beast, pursued Paul to Melita, some of us are still being pursued day and night by various Beasts.
  8. Pharaohs pursuing my journey to Canaan land, shake off to the Red sea in Jesus
  9. Paul was a persecutor of Christians before but Satan started pursuing him after he started serving Christ
  10. Every dark power pursuing me since birth, shake off in Jesus name
  11. The snake that fastened itself against Paul stands for the spirit of death, but Paul shook it off
  12. Venomous beasts, assigned to kill me shake off in Jesus name
  13. The venomous beast that fastened itself on Paul’s hands stands for the spirit of oppression, and affliction.
  14. Paul rejected the affliction and shook it off, you need to shake off every contrary thing in your life in Jesus name
  15. If Paul did not shake off the beast, the beast would have killed him
  16. Paul shook off the venomous beast into the fire.
  17. The fire represents the Holy Ghost fire. What is that big problem you need to shake off into the fire of God?
  18. Arise today and shake into fire every contrary thing in your life in Jesus name
  19. Many of us live in fear and are afraid of the enemy. If many of us are in Paul’s position, the fear of the snake tied on our hands would have consumed us
  20. Paul was able to shake off the viper because he was anointed. If he didn’t have the power of God the beast would have poisoned him to death. Paul was able to shake off the viper into fire and suffered no harm.
  21. I receive anointing to trample on snakes and scorpions
  22. Another lesson is that Paul was able to transform himself spiritually within a short time from a Christian convert to a Christian general. Many of us have remained feeding bottle Christians for years.
  23. Holy Spirit turn me into God’s General in Jesus name
  24. There is a reader of this message whose life, womb, business, prayer life, spiritual life, salvation, marriage, wedding, money etc has been tied by a venomous beast
  25. The assignment the Holy Spirit is giving you today is to Shake off the beast into fire
  26. The beast may be the spirit of infirmity. Shake off that sickness into fire in Jesus name
  27. Paul was able to shake of the viper because he is a son of God. Today, you too can receive the power to shake off  the enemy, if you make a u turn as Paul did and decide to follow Jesus and obeys all commencements.
  28. Repent from your sins and be born again

Image result for Acts 28

  • Every venomous viper attacking my glory, shake off by fire in the name of Jesus
  • You ancient Serpent attacking my business, shake off in Jesus name
  • You serpent attacking my progress, shake off by fire, shake off into fire in Jesus name
  • Every witchcraft affliction shake off by fire in Jesus name

How to receive from God

Posted on Updated on

Babatope Babalobi: + 2348035897435 babalobi@yahoo.com

Luke 18 vs. 35-43 – 35 And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:

36 And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.

37 And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.

38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

39 And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.

40 And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him,

41 Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight.

42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.

43 And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

  1. I studied the verse early this morning and the Holy Spirit opened my eyes regarding to verse 41
  2. Verse 41 says: What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? Which translated into simple English means: What do you want me to do for you?
  3. Just as Jesus asked the blind beggar that question, Jesus is asking you that same question today: What do you want me to do for you?
  4. The Holy Spirit gave me four interpretations of the verse.
  5. The first lesson of this verse is that Jesus knows you need something, Jesus knows you have a prayer request, Jesus knows you have a desire, Jesus knows you have a cry, Jesus knows you have a need that is why he is asking you today: What do you want me to do for you?
  6. The second lesson the Holy Spirit told me is that Jesus wants to meet your needs, he wants to answer your requests, he wants to treat your case, he wants to address your situation, that is why he is asking you: What do you want me to do for you. In the bible passage, Jesus stood still and asked the blind beggar to table his requests, heavens shall stand still for your sake today in Jesus name.
  7. The third lesson the Holy Spirit gave me from this passage is that, there are no limitations when Jesus decides to answer your prayers. In the passage, Jesus gave the bling beggar a blank cheque to ask whatever you want. What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. The beggar could have asked for houses, riches, wisdom etc, but he only asked for sight. Today, Jesus is asking you the same question he asked the beggar: What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? Please note this is a blank cheque, there are no limitations, and feel free to ask anything according to your imaginations and all your requests shall be answered in Jesus name according to Gods will.
  8. The fourth lesson the Holy Spirit revealed to me on this scripture is that Jesus has the power to do something for you, otherwise he would not have asked the question: What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee?  Jesus is the alpha and omega and nothing is too hard for him to do. As you have come to his presence today, note that you are before the son of God that can do all things, that has all powers, and that can meet all needs. Stretch your faith and received your miracles in Jesus name
  9. The fifth lesson the Holy Spirit revealed to me on this passage is that Jesus is passing by your side today. In the scripture, Jesus passed by Jericho, since he is the same yesterday, today, and forever, He is still passing by. Jesus is visiting your Jericho today, he is passing by your home, family, business, and work place now. In the presence of God, there is salvation, healing, and deliverance, the simple question Jesus is asking you today is:

 

What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee?

  1. Please go ahead and type your prayer requests and needs
  2. In the passage, Jesus told the blind beggar- Receive thy sight. In the name of the Lord Jesus,

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day  and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good successJoshua 1 vs 8

  1. Few days ago someone sent a message to me, saying : ‘Help me, I am going to die’
  2. I asked her if she truly wants to die, and she said No
  3. I asked her whether she has started preparation for death, and she said No.
  4. I asked her why was she confessing death, and she said she was afraid of dying.
  5. I told her that death is at the corner anyway, and if she keeps saying ‘I am going to die’, she will surely die soon. But if she confesses life, she will surely live instead of dying

 

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. – Proverbs 18 vs 21

What do you confess today? Go ahead make your confessions in Jesus name

  • I shall live and not die in Jesus name
  • There shall be comfort all around me in Jesus name
  • My coast shall be enlarged

 

  1. Followers of all religions in the world pray.
  2. Beggars pray, Idolators pray,
  3. Prayers is universal but not all prayers are answered.
  4. The difference between answered and unanswered prayers is the power that backs it up
  5. The answers you seek and the strength you need can be found only in feeding on God’s Word and fellowshipping with Him in prayer.

In the Bible the centurion told Jesus: ‘Just say the word, and my servant will be healed- Mathew 8 vs 8

Commentary on Matthew 8

Posted on Updated on

Babatope Babalobi: + 2348035897435 babalobi@yahoo.com

 

Matthew 8 introduces us to the three-fold ministry of the Lord Jesus:

  1. Ministry of healing
  2. Ministry of deliverance
  3. Ministry of salvation

 

  1. Jesus is the Healer
  2. Jesus healed the leper – 2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
  3. Jesus healed the man sick of palsy (vs.6)And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented;
  4. Jesus healed Peter’s mother sick of fever (vs. 14)And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.
  5. If you wish to receive a miracle, start by worshipping God. The leper worshipped Jesus before requesting for healing

vs. 2 –  And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying

Image result for Matthew 8

  1. The leper worshipped Jesus. What are you passing through that is hindering you from worshipping God?
  2. The leper worshipped God and received a miracle. Jesus does not respond to weeping, murmurings, or lamentations. Jesus respond to worship
  3. You need faith to receive divine healing. The centurion received divine healing for his servant by faith. Verse 88The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.
  4. Jesus healed by speaking word of God (vs. 8 and 15) –

8The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.  15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.

 

Jesus did not heal by asking people to drink holy water, asking them to bath in streams, asking them to sow a financial seed for healing, or asking the sick to rub spiritual cream on the body. He simply spoke the word of God healed the sick.

  1. If you desire healing, just speak the word. Compile healing scriptures and recite them daily.
  2. Jesus healed the sick by touch. The finger of Jesus shall touch you today in Jesus name

Verse 3:And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him

  1. Jesus is the deliverer. He delivered many that were possessed by devils ( 16) – 16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:

And (vs. 28) – 28 And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.

  1. Deliverance is core of Jesus’s ministry. Jesus cast out devils. You can cast out every devils troubling your life in Jesus name.

 

  1. Deliverance is by the word of God, Deliverance is not by any other material, except the word. It is the word that delivers, not intermediaries such as oil, handkerchief, water, soap, clothes, or photograph of men of God.

Verse 16 – and he cast out the spirits with his word 

  1. Jesus was asleep despite the stormy winds that was drowning the ship because he knew angels are ministering to him and God is in control. We need to be calm in face of crises and trust in Emmanuel, God is with us

Verse 24 – And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. 

  1. The disciples of Jesus were almost getting drowned but Jesus intervened. The disciples were almost perishing in the sea, but Jesus saved them. As long as you are with God, you shall not perish in any stormy wind of life in Jesus name. The Lord Jesus shall surely save you from perishing

Verse 25: And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

  1. Jesus is the Saviour. He rebuked the stormy wind, and saved his disciples from the drowning ship.

Verse 26  And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

I rebuke every storm in your ship in Jesus name

 

  1. Christians should be ready to make sacrifices for the kingdom. If you wish to carry the cross and follow Jesus, you should be ready to make sacrifices.

Verse 20: And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head

  1. Are you a true follower of Jesus.? Are you ready to follow Jesus anywhere? The disciples of Jesus followed him. If you are not doing any thing for the kingdom or obeying Gods laws, then you are not following Jesus

Verse 23:  And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

  1. You need to speak the word to claim your healing, call on Jesus to deliver you from devils; and pray to Him to save you from the stormy winds threatening to drown you.

Prayer

  • My body hear the word of God, be healed in Jesus name
  • Devils afflicting my life, I cast you out in Jesus name
  • Jesus of Nazareth, save me.

There is a strange word that appeared in the Bible. The strange word is ‘strangers’.

  2. Strangers are anything God did not create with you. These include spiritual husbands, ancestral curses,
  3. Strangers are tormenting spirits.

Bible study on Matthew 10

Posted on Updated on

 

  1. The 12 disciples of Jesus were introduced in Mathew 10.
  2. Why did Jesus choose 12 disciples, perhaps the tribes in Israel?
  3. Why were all the disciples’ male? The plausible reason is to avoid issues that may occur in mixing married or unmarried male and females together on His hectic missionary and evangelistic work. However, several other female disciples ministered to him
  4. Disciples of Jesus should preach the gospel, and the central message should be that of repentance and salvation. Sermons should be heaven focused (vs.7)And as ye go, preach, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

 

  1. Ministers of Christ are empowered to heal the sick and raise the dead (vs.8)Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead
  2. Ministers are empowered to cast out devils and deliver people from demonic oppression (vs.8), cast out devils
  3. Ministers should not commercialize the gospel or place a price tag on healing, deliverance, or salvation (vs.8)freely ye have received, freely give.
  4. Ministers should trust God to provide their wages- Verse 9 and 10 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
  5. Ministers should depend on God for financial provision (vs.9, 10) 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

 

  1. Salvation is by informed consent. Ministers should not spread the gospel where they are not welcomed (vs.11)And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
  2. Ministers of the gospel should be wise and smart and avoid falling into traps of the ungodly (vs.16): be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
  3. Ministers of Christ should abstain from all evils, and be peaceful (vs.16)be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
  4. Ministers should be watchful and vigilant of haters of the gospel (vs.17)But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
  5. Ministers of the gospel should expect to be persecuted, hated by the ungodly (vs.22)And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

 

  1. Ministers should not confront persecutors of the gospel, but ‘flee’ from them (vs.23)But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
  2. Ministers of Christ should not be ashamed of the gospel (vs.33)But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
  3. Ministers should preach the gospel boldly and openly (vs.27)What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

 

  1. Your enemies will be blood relations– verse 36- And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
  2. Any Christian who does not minister Christ is akin to an infidel (vs.38)And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
  3. Those that support the Minister of the gospel shall be divinely rewarded (vs. 40, 41&42)40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

Evangelism: How to win a soul for the kingdom of God

Posted on

2 Corinthians 10 vs 33 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.

  1. This is really a scripture for soul winning rather than for deliverance.
  2. Several issues are clear from this scripture.Image result for 2 Corinthians 10 vs 3 - 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.
  3. You may not be able to win a soul simply be evangelizing.
  4. There are strong holds that have held unbelievers captive and you need to pull them down in the spirit before you can win the captives for Christ
  5. You cannot win a soul through debate and arguments on the scriptures.
  6.  If for instance someone asks you: How are you sure there is heaven, have you been to heaven before? I am sure you may not be able to give a convincing response.
  7. You cannot win a soul by trying to debunk philosophies and theories against the Bible.
  8. The most effective way of soul winning is intercessory prayer and fasting to cast down strongholds that have held believers captive.
  9. You need to engage in warfare in the spirit to set unbelievers free physically and spiritually.

Prayer

  • Holy Spirit, give me souls this month in Jesus name

Power of prayer

Read Luke 9 vs. 28-36 – 28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.

29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.

30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:

31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.

32 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.

33 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.

34 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.

35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

Commentary on Luke 5: How to receive a net breaking miracle  

Posted on

 

Read Luke 5 vs. 1-5 – 1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,

 

 2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.

 Image result for luke 5

 3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.

 

 4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.

 

5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless, at thy word I will let down the net.

 

Simon Peter received a net-breaking miracle and you can follow his principle to receive such a miracle.

 

  1. You need divine favour. Peter was not the only fisherman washing his net when Jesus came to the lake of Gennesaret, but Jesus singled him out and approached him. Your miracle shall find you and locate you in Jesus name

 

  1. Peter was not the only ship owner by the lake of Gennesaret. There were two ships there, but Jesus decided to enter the ship of Peter. The Lord shall enter your ship today in Jesus name.

 

  1. Peter released his ship to Jesus. There is a ship in your hand, you need to release to Jesus so that you can receive a blessing.

 

  1. Peter obeyed simple instruction. He was not wise in his eyes. He thrusted out the ship and launched the nets according to the commandment of Jesus. As you obeyed divine instructions, you shall receive net-breaking miracles in Jesus name.
  2. Peter was patient. He waited patiently as Jesus preached from his ship. Jesus sermon inside the ship, could possibly have taken hours. He did not complain. He did not hurry Jesus up, even though he was tired from all night toiling without profits. Impatience shall not cause you to miss your miracle in Jesus name.

 

  1. Peter believed the word. “At thy word, I will let down the net” 5And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless, at thy word I will let down the net.

 

Hold on to the word, and you shall receive a net-breaking miracle in Jesus name.

 

  1. Peter let down the ship and the net for Jesus. I repeat again that there is something in your hands you need to let down for Jesus to receive a miracle.

 

  1. Everything obeys the word of Jesus. Even fishes know their creator. The fishes filled the net of Peter at the word of Jesus. What happened was that the fishes heard their creator preaching, and they came to worship Him, and in the process got caught in Peter’s net. As you allow Jesus to enter and use your ship, every material thing- profits, fortunes, goodness and open doors shall pursue you in Jesus name.

 

  1. You need helpers and partners to overcome recession. Peter had fishing partners that helped me to draw up the net breaking miracle of fishes, otherwise he would have got drown. He had helper fishermen that assisted him to possess his blessings. You need helpers to connect you.

 

  1. Don’t be greedy. The ship of Peter alone could not accommodate his miracles. He had to call for assistance. If Peter was greedy, his miracle would had sunk him. Be contented when your miracle comes.

 

 

  1. Maintain good relationship with others. If Peter did not have good relationship with the other ship owners and fishermen, he would not have received support and his ship would had sunk.

 

  1. Lastly, when God blesses you, the whole world will know. God’s blessings are in abundance. God’s blessings will make you a blessing to others. Peter affected the fellow ship owner and fishermen with his blessings. His ship alone could not accommodate his blessings, and he had to share his blessings with others. When God blesses you, you shall become a blessing.

Prayer

  • God of Simon Peter, give me a net-breaking miracle in Jesus name.

Luke 2 Commentary: Bible on women ordination

Image result for women's ordination

  1. The issue of women ordination is hotly debated among Christians
  2. Some churches believe it is biblical, others believe in the contrary.
  3. A biblical truth and fact is that women served in Apostolic offices in the Bible.
  4. One of such is Anna, described in the Bible as a Prophetess, a widow and aged 84 years – Luke 1 vs. 36
  5. Anna was also a prayer warrior and fasted day and night.
  6. Anne was also a Missionary, Evangelist and Preacher – Luke 1 vs. 38
  7. May God give us the grace and wisdom to believe the Bible, rather than Church doctrines in Jesus name.

How to receive/get a miracle: Break the roof !

Posted on Updated on

Mark 2 vs 1-13 –And when he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home.

2 And many were gathered together, so that there was no more room, not even at the door. And he was preaching the word to them.  And they came, bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men.

4 And when they could not get near him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him, and when they had made an opening, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. 5 And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” 6 Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts,

7 “Why does this man speak like that? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?”Image result for Mark 2 vs 1-13

8 And immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they thus questioned within themselves, said to them,“Why do you question these things in your hearts?

9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise, take up your bed and walk’?

10 But that you may know that bthe Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the paralytic—

11 “I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home.”

12 And he rose and immediately picked up his bed and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”

How to receive a miracle: Break the roof

The story of how the Man sick of palsy received healing from Jesus contains several lessons on how to receive a miracle.

1. Have a strong desire. The man could not have been the only one sickly, but he was the only one that overcame all odds to present himself for healing miracle.

2. Present yourself to Jesus. The man knew he needed supernatural intervention to be healed, so he presented himself to Jesus. If you want a miracle, approach the miracle worker.

3. Have extreme faith. The sick man agreed to be taken up the ladder, agreed to be let down a broken roof, and agreed to go through all the pains to receive healing. You need to leave and abandon your comfort zone to receive healing. No pain no gain. You need to go through the pain of studying the Bible, praying without ceasing, fasting, sacrificial holiness, and service to God.

4. Have supporters. Iron sharpeneth Iron. You need people to help you get out of crises. You need more friends not enemies. Who took the man with his sick bed to Jesus, who attempted to bring him to Jesus and failed, who took him up the roof, who broke the roof, who took him down a broken roof without the sick getting injured, who laid the sick man on the bed before Jesus, and who called the attention of Jesus to the sick man? His Friends and family members!  This year you need more friends and associates that will help you come out of crisis.

5. To sustain your miracle you need to run from sin. Jesus told him to go and sin no more. If you go back to sin, Satan will afflict you again

6. Use wisdom . It takes wisdom for the friends/family of the sick man to know they needed to break the roof to receive a miracle.Otherwise the man would have died in sickness

7. Purse your dreams. I am sure the man and his friends would have faced ridicule, oppositions, scorn, and physical pain while climbing and breaking the roof to get to Jesus. Ignore the world, pursue your dreams, and the world will end up celebrating you

Prayer

  1. I break the roof covering my open heavens in Jesus name.
  2. I break the roof of prayerlessness and sin covering my miracles in Jesus name

MESSENGER OR MESSAGE?

Posted on Updated on

  By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever” (Isaiah 40:8)

Read: Isaiah 40:6-8

In 2 Kings 5:9-12, when Naaman eventually got to the house of Elisha, he felt too big to enter. He stayed outside and waited for the man of God to come and meet him. However, Elisha sent a messenger to him, instructing him on what to do to be cured of his leprosy.

Naaman was furious. He felt humiliated. ‘Who does this so-called prophet think he is anyway? Has he not heard of my name? He feels too big to come out to attend to me, and finally sent a messenger’, he wondered. He decided to return to Syria! Whenever God sends a message through a messenger, one is more important than the other.

The message is God’s Word. God’s Word is the same as God (John 1:1). Therefore God’s Word is more important than the messenger or vessel through whom it is sent. Several believers today are not different from Naaman in this aspect. When they get to church and discover the preacher taking the sermon is not the G.O. or pastor, they will suddenly grow cold on the message.

You will hear some of them say, ‘ I don’t get blessed whenever any other pastor preaches other than my pastor’. This is a mark of childhood. If your reception of God’s Word is dependent on who preaches and who does not preach, you are exalting the messenger above the message.

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever” (Isaiah 40:8). Today’s reading tells us that long after the messenger has passed away, the Word of God still stands. If you are a true seeker of the Most High, the messenger He uses in communicating with you does not matter. You will joyfully receive the message and act on it.

Today, even when some prophetic utterances are coming directly from the Throne of Grace, some highly learned intellectuals cannot receive it, because they focus on the grammatical errors of the messenger. Some find it difficult to receive a divine message coming through their child, ward or even house help.

If Naaman had not listened to his house help, he would have died a leper. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. Concentrate on the Word not the messenger. The messenger can make mistakes being a man, but God’s Word stands forever. Sharpen your reception today!

Father, help me to receive your messages through whatever medium you choose.
