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

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.

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.

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.

  1. In Ezekiel chapter 1 vs. 1 talks about open heavens

Church officers and leaders : Who is a Bishop?

Posted on Updated on

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

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

By Babatope Babalobi

 

Ephesians 4:11

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

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

 

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

 

1 Timothy 3 vs. 1-7

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Titus 1 vs 6-9;

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

 

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

Duties of a Bishop or Overseer

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

 

Qualifications  of a Bishop or Overseer  or Pastor

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

 

Summary

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

 

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

Posted on

By Babatope Babalobi babalobi@yahoo.com +2348035897435

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

What is Bow?

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

 

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

  1. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to bow down to the god of Nebuchadnezzar
  2. Joseph brothers than wanted him dead bowed to him
  3. Pharaoh bowed to Moses
  4. King Nebuchadnezzar bowed to Daniel
  5. Goliath bowed to David
  6. Mordecai refused to bow to Haman
  7. All names must bow to Jesus

 

What do you need to do for things to bow for you in Jesus name?

  1. Repent of your sins and become born again
  2. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour
  3. Flee from sin
  4. Be holy
  5. Pray  and command evils to bow in Jesus name

 

You need to do self-deliverance for yourself. What are the things that must bow to you in Jesus name? List them

 

NOW THAT YOU HAVE CALLED HIM. HE HAS ANSWERED. NOT START TO COMMAND EVERY THING YOU DON’T WANT IN YOUR LIFE TO BOW IN JESUS NAME….CANCER BOW 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,

What is difference between Spirit, Soul, and Body?

Posted on Updated on

By Overcomer Babalobi

Genesis 2:7And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

  1. Man is made of the dust(body), the breath of God(spirit). and the mind of God(soul).
  2. The most important in the three is my spirit because it’s what makes me alive.
  3. The spirit is like the unseen current in the electrical wire. The soul is the power of the current, and the body is the wire itself and its covering, which is useless when it does not have electrical energy
  4. I must not forget to take develop my spirit, which is by praying, fasting, worshiping God always, by reading is word, and complete holiness.
  5. God relates not with our soul or body, but our spirit.
  6. Before i can deeply and successfully walk with God I must kill my flesh by avoiding worldliness and carnality.

Prayer

  • My spirit, receive fire in Jesus name
  • My body die to sin in Jesus name

Thanksgiving message: Thank God for all His blessings

Posted on

I woke up this morning singing a song of thanksgiving from my sleep, and the Holy Spirit ministered that we should just thank God today.

2 Chronicles 5 vs 13The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: “He is good; his love endures forever.” Then the temple of the LORD was filled with the cloud

MENTION ONE BY ONE TEN THINGS GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU IN THE PAST  AND THANK HIM

11 Chronicles 5 vs. 13-14 – 13. It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord; 14. So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.

 

Psalm 9 vs 1 – “I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds”

Psalm 100 vs. 4 – Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
Psalm 107 vs 1O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for hismercy endureth for ever.

Psalm 118 vs 29O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Psalm 136 vs. 1 – O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Luke 11 vs 15-19 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering said, were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

 

Acts 16:25-26About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody’s chains came loose.

Philippians 4 vs. 6-7 – 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 1 Thessalonians 5:18In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Bible study on Mathew 9

Posted on Updated on

 

  1. Matthew 9 further reveals the healing and salvation ministry of Jesus Christ.
  2. Jesus healed the paralytic, (vs.2) – And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee;
  3. Jesus healed the woman with the issue of blood for 12 years, (vs.22) – But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour;
  4. He rose the daughter of the king from dead, (vs.25)– But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.

 

  1. He also caused the blind men to see, (vs.30) – And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.
  2. He healed the dumb  (vs.33)– And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.
  3. Jesus also introduced himself again as the Savior, and friend of sinners. He dined with a crowd of drunkards and sinners. He did not stigmatize nor label them as outcasts. Rather, he announced his ministry to them: ‘(vs.13)– for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
  4. If the only thing we do in church or Christian ministry is to preach to the saved, then we are not fulfilling the ministry of Jesus Verse 12 – 12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
  5. Jesus revealed himself as a teacher of the word, preacher of the gospel, and a city/village evangelist. The miracles of Jesus were either preceded or accompanied by teaching of the Word of God, and preaching on repentance from sins.

 

  • Lastly Jesus lamented that absence of labourers to harvest souls to the kingdom. Would you decide today to harvest souls for the kingdom by doing the work of a missionary, evangelist, or Pastor?

Verse 37Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but     the labourers are few; 38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

  • Do you want to remain as a church goer, a bench warmer in church or you want to step out for Jesus from today as a harvester of soul?

Prayers

  • The devil shall not harvest your soul in Jesus name
  • The devil shall NOT harvest my soul in Jesus name

Good Friday sermon: Jesus wept

Posted on

 

John 11 vs. 35 – Jesus wept

  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 heaven and heaven
  7. May you become heaven focussed from today in Jesus name
  8. May the god of mammon not rejoice over your soul in Jesus name
  9. Jesus wept and He is still weeping because His followers who call themselves Christians are coming to Him more because of breakthroughs and miracles rather than the salvation of their souls.
  10. May the cares of this world not cause you to miss the road to heaven in Jesus name
  11. Jesus wept
  12. 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
  13. May your earthly breakthroughs not prevent you from breakthroughs to heaven in Jesus name
  14. In the last day, may your breakthrough to heaven in Jesus name
  15. May sin not blot your name from the book of life in Jesus name
  16. Jesus wept and He is still weeping because Christians have ignored his last commandment to preach the gospel to all the ends of the earth, whereas the last wish of even dead human beings are respected
  17. May the fire of evangelism consume you in Jesus name
  18. Jesus wept and He is still weeping because many Christians are not interested in missionary or evangelical work, instead of collecting souls for the kingdom they are interested only in collecting miracles from Him.
  19. May the fire of revival consumer you in Jesus name
  20. Jesus wept and still weeping because most Christians are not willing to make any sacrifice for the Kingdom, whether in terms of time, energy, service, or money. The harvest is full but the harvesters are few
  21. May you become a harvester of souls in Jesus name
  22. 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.
  23. I Pray that you shall not crucify Jesus through your actions in Jesus name
  24. Your old man shall be crucified on the cross today in Jesus name
  25. Jesus wept and He is still weeping because Hell is becoming more and more enlarged as few and fewer people are making heaven.
  26. My prayer is that among the few that will make heaven, your name and my name shall be on the list in Jesus name
  27. Jesus wept and He is still weeping when He remembers the pains of the cross; as hell is winning the battle for souls of men.
  28. May hell not rejoice over you in Jesus name
  29. May demons not rejoice over you in Jesus name
  30. May heaven rejoice over your soul in Jesus name

Do you want to stop Jesus from weeping?

  • Be an aggressive soul winner
  • Be an unapologetic preacher of the gospel
  • Serve God with your talent, time, energy, and resources

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.

44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

Sermon: Stop them before they stop you. Kill them before they kill you

Posted on

1 Samuel 2 vs 6
“The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.” 

  1. Pharaoh wanted to stop Israelites from entering the promised land, but the God of Israel killed him at the Red sea.
  2. Samson refused to stop Delilah from seducing him, and the enemies of Samson, the Philistines, killed him.
  3. Goliath boosted against the Lord and vowed to stop the Israelites from entering the land of milk and honey, but David rose up and beheaded Goliath.
  4. 850 false prophets gathered on Mount Carmel to kill Elijah, but Prophet Elijah called down fire from heaven and killed all the 850 false  prophets with a sword. 1 Kings 18.
  5. King Ahaziah sent 100 soldiers to arrest Elijah, but Prophet Elijah called down fire from heaven and killed all the 100 soldiers. 2 Kings 1.
  6. Haman planned to kill Mordecai and the Jews, but the Jews prayed and Mordecai was hanged.
  7. Herod wanted to kill Baby Jesus, as a matter of  fact he killed thousands of babies while searching for Jesus; but Herod died suddenly and Jesus fulfilled destiny.
  8. Herod demanded for the head of John the Baptist.
    Unfortunately, John the Baptist  allowed his enemies to use his head as pepper soup rather than calling  down  fire from heaven in the power and spirit of Elijah
  9. Stephen full of Holy Ghost (See Acts 7 vs 54) , prayed for his murderers as he was being stoned to death. If he was Elijah, fire would have consumed his enemies.
  10. Herod killed James with the sword,but when he wanted to kill Peter, the Brethren rose up in prayer and stopped him. Acts 12
  11. Forty Jews swore not to eat and drink until they kill Paul ( See Acts 23 vs 13). They all died of hunger because God saved Paul.
  12. Conclusion
    Beloved, if you don’t stop the enemy like David stopped Goliath, the enemy will stop you.
  13. If you refuse to spiritually kill your enemies like the Jews killed Haman, your Hamans will use your blood for witchcraft pepper soup.
  14. If you behave like Samson and refuse to kill sin in your life, you may end up dancing in a party organised by your enemies to celebrate  your downfall.

Stop them before they stop you.

Kill sin before it kills you.

Kill your enemies spiritually before they kill you.Image result for 1 Samuel 2 vs 6 “The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.”

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.
