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

  30. May heaven rejoice over your soul in Jesus name

Commentary on Isaiah 49 vs 24-26: Eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood

Posted on

By Babatope Babalobi babalobi@yahoo.com +2348035897435

  1. The Holy Spirit showed me a strange revelation this morning.
  2. I saw a man standing and suddenly an evil power came like a bird from the sky and started licking the man, and later on began to eat up his  flesh
  3. I woke up in amazement that such horrible things do occur and the Holy Spirit said what I have just seen is the activities of eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood.
  4. At this point you need to pray like this-
  • My flesh is not for ritual sacrifice in Jesus name
  • My flesh become fire, my blood carry fire in Jesus name

Let see what the scriptures say about eaters of flesh in Isaiah 49 vs 26-
24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?

25 But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.

26 And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

 

Who are these eaters of flesh that the scriptures is talking about?

Who are these eaters of flesh that the Holy Spirit showed me in a revelation?

  1. They are the people the Bible called the mighty
  2. They are the powers the Bible called Terrible
  3. They are dark powers that do not respect the power you are carrying
  4. They are dark powers that specialise in taking people as a prey
  5. They are dark powers contending with your destiny
  6. They are oppressive and limiting spirits
  7. They are powers that quench their thirsts with human blood
  8. They are powers that use human flesh with as dinner

 

What are the activities of these eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood?

  1. They are responsible for unexplainable accidents.  If you see any accident where blood has been spilled and with human carnage, possibly this accident has been programmed
  2. They are responsible for strange deaths in hospital. There several satanic hospitals around that donate patients to dark powers.
  3. They are responsible for ritual sacrifices, murders, and assassinations.
  4. They are responsible for drying sicknesses
  5. The drinkers of blood are responsible for wounds that refuse to heal
  6. The eaters of flesh are responsible for miscarriages, still births, abortions, child and maternal deaths
  7. They are responsible for kidnappings, genocide, civil wars, Islamic extremism like Boko Haram/Isis and all other activities that leads to unnecessary shedding of human blood and waste of life

 Image result for Isaiah 49 vs 26-

How do you overcome the eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood?

  1. Become born again
  2. Engage in spiritual warfare
  3. Pray Judgmental prayers
  4. Mark yourself with the blood of Jesus

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.

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.

DIVINE PRESENCE FACILITATES GOOD WORKS

Posted on Updated on

  By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Colossians 1:10)

Read: Colossians 1:9-11

In Acts 2, after Peter delivered a powerful few minutes’ sermon, he made an altar call and 3000 souls responded. This shows that he was experiencing open Heavens. I have observed that prospering is not so much as the line of business or one’s expertise in one’s field (although these matter) as much as whether Heaven is open or closed to the individual.

If Heaven is open to you, even when all you sell is water, you will stand out and be a multi-millionaire. If it is firewood you are selling, people will stop patronizing others, and all roads would lead to your location. If you are operating a canteen, people will come to ask where you learnt to cook so well.

This season, Heaven will be opened to you. Peter and John had been seeing the lame man at the Beautiful Gate parish for years but could not do anything. But when Heaven opened to them on the day of Pentecost, they met the same lame man at the same location, in the same state, but this time, they had something to offer (Acts 3:1-8). When Heaven opens to you, you will have something to offer to the needy.

Thank God for laying on of hands. Many lives have been dramatically affected through this. The reason some lay hands on your head and nothing happened, is because the hands were empty. Heaven has not empowered them. In Matthew 3:16, not only did the Holy Spirit descend on Jesus, He also abode with Him. Jesus became the permanent residence of the Holy Spirit.

When Heaven opens to you, you will be guaranteed of divine presence which also means divine backing over whatever you embark on. According to Acts 10:38, Jesus could produce good works because God was with Him. If you desire to do good or be full of good works, you must crave the divine presence in your life. Have you been struggling with living the Christian life? Are you compromising with unbelieving colleagues in your office? Is it difficult for you to stand for the truth in the face of compromising believers?

Do you find it difficult to forgive that neighbour who has offended you? You need open Heavens to release the divine presence that can help you do what you cannot ordinarily do. The Lord will open Heaven upon you and empower you to be fruitful in serving Him, living right, and in doing every good work in Jesus’ Name.

Lord, as never before, let me be a carrier of the Holy Spirit.

WHICH SURPRISE PACK?

Posted on Updated on

  By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
romans-11-22-660x330Memorise: “Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off” (Romans 11:22 )

Read: Romans 11:17-24

Our God is called Wonderful (Isaiah 9:6). He is loaded with awe-causing events – both good and bad and distributes these to people, depending on whether they are friends or foes. He revealed Himself to the Israelites and the Egyptians as the Wonderful, only that each saw His wonders from two different ends.

Another person who knew Jesus as the Wonderful was Peter. In Luke 5:1-11, after exhausting all effort without catching a single fish, Peter encountered Jesus. From the same lake where he could not catch a fish, with the revelation of the Wonderful, Peter’s catch sank two ships. When the Wonderful is involved in your case, where you could not get anything from will be the same place, idea, business, profession or family you will obtain a harvest beyond comprehension.

Peter was so shocked, awe-stricken and dumb-founded at this surprise pack from the Wonderful that he became confused on how to respond. This season, the Lord will release a positive surprise package into your hands that will cause you to open your mouth in surprise in the Name of Jesus Christ.

“Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off” (Rom 11:22). God’s goodness is released from His positive wonder packs, while His judgement come from the negative wonder packs. In today’s reading, we are told of the dealings of the Wonderful with both Jews and Gentiles. Initially, God chose to introduce Himself to the Israelites.

He specially chose them as His children and fought against all their enemies. Even when Jesus came, He said He was sent to the lost house of Israel (Matthew 15:24). Also in Acts 1:8, priority was given to Israel. These were all parts of the pleasant surprises from the Wonderful. But when they continued to grieve His Spirit, He cut them off and started dealing with the Gentiles. That was His severity – a negative surprise as far as the Jews were concerned.

Are you a believer? You qualify for pleasant surprise packs from the Wonderful. But if you do not sustain your righteous standing and daily make Him happy, He may show you another aspect of His surprises – judgement. That shall not be your portion in Jesus’ Name. You are the one to determine which surprise package will come to you by your works, thoughts and desires.

Lord, as you visit me with good surprise packs, visit every oppressor of my destiny with negative surprises.

Make this Christmas merry

Posted on Updated on

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

Another Christmas, the greatest celebration in the world is here. How are you preparing to mark the Christmas? Are you planning to go on holidays or you are on holidays already?

Have you decorated your offices and homes with lightings and Christmas trees? Have you given gifts to friends and relations that have been of support to you throughout the year? Have you done the traditional Christmas shopping and have bought clothes for the kids

Christmas is a time of fun, entertainment, merry making, relaxation, and festivities.

No matter how you are planning to spend the Christmas, it is important to remember the reason for the celebration. Jesus Christ is the author of Christmas as the day is a remembrance of his birthday.

Your Christmas celebrations will not be complete and will in fact be meaningless if you do not know and discover the reason for the celebration. How would you feel if someone marks your birthday and forgets to wish you the celebrant a happy birthday?

Jesus is the celebrant and one important thing you must do this Christmas is to understand his ministry and accept his call for your salvation. Read the rest of this entry »

Names of Jesus Christ-Wonderful, Counselor,The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of

Posted on Updated on

  By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters” (Exodus 15:10)

Read: Exodus 15:1-11

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

In the above verse, we are told of five names and titles of our Lord Jesus Christ and each of them is not only power-packed, but also significant for His church on earth. He is called ‘Wonderful’.

This means full of wonders. The fact that He is called Wonderful means that we should expect lots of wonder, surprise-causing events from Him. Exodus 15:11 lends credence to this special name saying, “Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods?Image result

Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” Why is He called Wonderful? It is because He is the custodian of wonders – both pleasant and unpleasant, and gives them out to His friends, foes and demons as situation demands.

For instance at the Red Sea, He revealed Himself to both the Israelites and the Egyptians as the One full of wonders. He gave the former pleasant wonders by parting the Red Sea for them to escape from their enemies. It was in appreciation of this that the Israelites sang the song of Moses (Exodus 15:1-19).

On the other hand, the Egyptians got their dose of surprise – but a negative one this time. They saw the Red Sea open and they went after Israel. Their mouths were open as they saw what they never saw before, and were still looking when the sea covered them.

Unfortunately, many enemies of God never live to tell the story of their encounter with the Wonderful. Someone asked, What is a wonder? A wonder is an unexpected event that leaves your mouth wide open. The Yorubas call it Iyanu – (a wonder that leaves your mouth agape). When you encounter the Wonderful, you will not know when your mouth will open in surprise. If nothing has caused you to open your mouth without closing it, you are yet to know Him as the Wonderful.

Until He reveals Himself to you as the Wonderful, you cannot assess the surprise packages in His kitty that can truly overwhelm you. From today, ask Him to reveal Himself to you as the Wonderful. Situations in your life will only respond to Him as the Wonderful.

Ask that God would terminate the activities of false prophets and false churches in this nation.

Prayer point: My star and glory must shine

Posted on Updated on

Memorise: “And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him” (Matthew 2:11a)

Read: Matthew 2:1-8

birth-of-jesus“And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child: and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also” (Matthew 2:8).

After Jesus was born, some wise men came looking for Him. We want to learn one or two things from this passage. First, the people that came searching for Jesus were no ordinary men. They were the wise men of their day.

In those days, kings depended on the advice of their wise men. These were powerful people who prophesied, explained omens and dark secrets, interpreted dreams and generally practiced divinations. They were well respected and feared by kings because they were of priestly caste.

If a commoner had come to king Herod with the news of the birth of a unique king, he would have laughed it over and gone to sleep. But when these powerful and revered wise men came from a distance with the message, Herod was afraid.

God got his attention through this. He thought, if these powerful priests who were skilled and versed in the study of the stars could leave their country with the intention of worshipping a new born baby king, then, it must be a serious matter. Herod and his men had no rest from the moment the bombshell was delivered.

God knows how to get your attention. Just one unpleasant news is enough to get somebody’s attention. Have you been trying to get somebody’s attention but your efforts never paid off? Is the fellow always complaining of not having time? If you call on the Attention Specialist to intervene, the fellow would suspend everything else just to attend to you.

Whoever has ignored you, your family or desires for so long will have no choice but to attend to you this season in Jesus’ Name. Besides, these honourable wise men decided to see the One the special star announced. There are stars and there are stars. The star announcing Jesus was an unusual one. It was so remarkable that they knew this King was no ordinary king. That He was a child did not matter.

They knew this child was the King of kings. They were determined to go and worship Him: They told king Herod that there is a Super King that kings should worship, and he too promised to do so, although he was not sincere. Are you a king? Are you a man or woman of authority? Then you need to know this King that kings, lords, and great people must worship. If you fail to bow your heart to Jesus, your position or power can be voided.

Go on your knees and worship this Super King for at least one hour.

CHOOSING FOR YOURSELF?

Memorise: “So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands” ( Psalm 78:72)

Read: Genesis 2:21-22

psalm78In Genesis 24:1-6, not only was Abraham concerned about Isaac’s bride, he ensured his chief servant was put under oath to pick from his home town. For many years, Abraham sojourned in Canaan – the promised land yet when it came to choosing a wife for his son Isaac, he went home. A time to marry is a time to return home – to the Body of Christ.

Every believer has his or her spouse waiting in the Body of Christ, not necessarily in the same denomination. Are you single and trusting God for a husband or wife? Go back to the Body of Christ. Once you have accepted God’s verdict that unbelievers are completely out of it – no matter how intelligent, rich, understanding or compatible the fellow may be, the next thing is to decide whether you want to choose by yourself, through some assistance by men, or you want God to choose for you.

You are free to choose a fellow believer as a marriage partner but there are high risks involved in this. It is possible the fellow you see as very zealous, up and doing and an ideal spouse could be putting up an act, or may be a spiritual weight. Many believers have fallen prey to such actors in the past and are today full of regrets.

A promising young brother got involved with a sister who joined the church. She went through the young converts class and was water-baptized. Before the pastor knew it, they were seeing each other and eventually fell into fornication. After the brother was disciplined, he went ahead to marry the lady. Years later, the initial fire in the brother refused to ignite.

He continued to serve God peripherally. When he was being considered for a ministerial training, his wife was the excuse. Her presence in his life had quenched the Pentecostal fire in him. Younger believers have come and over taken the brother, yet his eyes have not opened to his persistent lukewarm state. Another reason not to choose by yourself is that whatever you use as criteria for your choice may not stand the test of time.

If you are choosing him because he is rich or choosing her because she is very pretty, what happens when that wealth or beauty disappears tomorrow? You can be sure that will become a big problem. Also, human beings are generally limited in their ability to make right choices. You may be choosing that fellow because of what you can see today instead of looking at his tomorrow. Let God choose for you!

Some pastors manipulate their members to marry only from their local parish contrary to the will of God. Never play God in the lives of those under you!

How to celebrate Christmas?

Posted on Updated on

 Psalms 84 vs. 2 My Soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord –

 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising theePsalm 84 vs. 4

 For a day in thy courts is better that a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, that to dwell in the tents of wickedness –Psalm 84 vs10

Where is the best place to spend Christmas Day? In a Pub or Club? At Beer parlour or Hotel? At a beach or tourist attraction? With Santa Claus, the famed Father Christmas at his grotto?

Is Christmas day best spend visiting friends and relatives or holidaying? Should we spend Christmas day at Discos or Partying? Or should we spend Christmas day indoors resting, reading, sleeping, winning or dinning, or watching films and movies.

Christmas is the birthday of Jesus and the day is best spent in the presence of the celebrant. Christmas day is a time for sober reflection on the ministry of Jesus Christ, a day for deep meditation of the teachings of the messiah and a day for rededication and recommitment of our lives to him.

WHAT PRAYER CAN CHANGE

Posted on Updated on

    By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 18:19)

Read: Mark 4:35-41

matthgew-18Jesus encounter with Heaven in the Garden called Gethsemane reveals the immutability of God. He cannot be changed by our prayers since He maintains His essence eternally. If prayer cannot change God, why pray? If prayer cannot change God, it can change people. For instance, on Mount Carmel in 1 Kings 18:36-39, the same people who had equated the Almighty God with idols suddenly began to scream: “The Lord is God, the Lord is God” after prayer.

If people are undecided on who the true God to be worshipped is, it is because we believers have not prayed to the point of effecting a change. Many believers were prayed into the Kingdom. I am one of them. Are your loved ones, relatives and friends still living in sin? It is an evidence that you have not prayed enough for them. Back up your evangelism with serious intercession as you stand on scriptures that promise salvation for the lost. Many evangelistic outreaches and efforts are lost to prayerlessness.

With prayer, you can change the decisions of people on issues. Those who were opposed to you can become affectionately disposed to you if you can pay the price on your knees. Your prayer closet is a strong control room. Use it regularly from today or you will be held accountable for the changes you could have made which you failed to make.

Although prayer cannot change God, it can however change situations and circumstances for good. Every challenge, situation or circumstance that comes your way is waiting for the right prayer heat to change it. Through prayer, you rename problems. Whatever does not make you happy can suddenly be changed to deliver your greatest joy, if exposed to the appropriate change agent – effective and fervent prayer.

In 1 Samuel 16:11-13, a shepherd boy changed his job and became a most famous king through prayer. What is that unpleasant situation before you now? Confront it with your prayer fire and see it change before you. When the wind and waves arose against Jesus and His disciples in Mark 4:35-41, He said a prayer of decree and the tempest ceased. What is that contrary wind blowing against your family or business? Take it up in prayer and it shall cease.

Agree with your prayer partner over a certain matter you want to come to pass and pray about.

ASKING FROM THE TOP?

Posted on Updated on

    By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off” (Psalm 138:6)

Read: 2 Kings 5:9-12

138Elisha heard how the Israeli king tore his royal robe into shreds for fear that the king of Syria was seeking an occasion for war with them, so he invited Naaman over to his house. Naaman came with pomp and pageantry. He came with fine horses and chariots and was decorated with his uniform as a general. He got to Elisha’s house but felt it was not presentable enough so he stayed outside. He was the one in need of help yet he was the one exhibiting pride.

With all the things he was proudly displaying, he was still a leper. Without Jesus Christ, a sinner is still a sinner no matter how highly placed he is. Sin in the life of a sin is worse than leprosy, hence a sinner is worse than a leper. Every sinner is far removed from God except the fellow takes advantage of the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary. Isaiah 1:18 says, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool”.

This talks of the efficacy of the blood of Jesus Christ. What is meant here is that even if one’s sins have been doubly immersed into the deep coloured dye of the coccus worm meant to give it a permanent fix, it can be restored to its original whiteness. The blood of Jesus can both deal with the colour and texture of sin. This means, no matter what sin you have committed, there is forgiveness for you if you can sincerely come to Jesus and ask for cleansing by His blood today.

Another lesson here has to do with attitude. Pride and blessing never go together. Psalm 138:6 says, “Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off”. The spirit of pride can never walk in agreement with our God. Never! As high as God is, He will only regard the lowly or humble seeker. You cannot seek God if you feel too big, too knowledgeable or too wise.

As long as you cannot come down from your high tower to meet God at the lowly place, you may never meet Him. Whenever you are seeking God’s blessing, align your ways with His. Humble yourself. Forget how important people say you are. Come to Him as a nobody – someone who is helpless, hopeless and impoverished. Call out to Him with humility and He will hear you. Some people cannot get their desires, not because they are not asking, but because they are asking from a high place instead of the lowly place.

Humility is key to receiving from God.

POLYGAMY NOT ALLOWED

Posted on Updated on

   By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband” (1 Corinthians 7:2)

Read: 1 Corinthians 7:1-2

polygamy“And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery” (Matthew 19:9).

A Christian who is married but goes ahead to take a second wife, or keeps a mistress outside, or divorces and remarries is an adulterer. In the Old Testament, polygamy was allowed but not without its negative effects on family life. However, in the New Testament, the Lord Jesus brought us back to how it was from the beginning.

Certain practices such as polygamy and divorce were permitted then because of the hardness of their hearts. Having seen the negative effects of such on families, He came to put things right with His grace to support. Anyone who is married but still looks out for sexual gratification from any other woman is an adulterer and is heading for hell.

In Matthew 19:4-6, an equation is given: Two – a man and his wife shall be one flesh. Two, not three or four. This talks about a divine blend into oneness. No polygamous home is one before God because they have failed to meet with Heaven’s equation. It is when two become one that it becomes difficult to separate them. This is why most polygamous homes are faced with division and strife, and break faster than true two-some homes.

If you look at the early church, you will notice that polygamy was out of fashion, but the few who stuck with it were not given any meaningful spiritual assignment (1 Timothy 3:2). God did not make a man to be the husband of two or more wives. That is utter confusion! If your pastor or leader is the husband of more than one wife, run out of that assembly. If your pastor or prophet is married, but still keeps a mistress or freely sleeps with other women, he is a false prophet.

Run away from that assembly before he takes you to hell. A polygamist leader will look for various ways, including scriptures to justify his sin. Abraham was a polygamist but he made restitution concerning Hagar. Were you a polygamist before you got saved? Go to your pastor for counselling.

Lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and pride of life are the root causes of polygamy. Ask God to break their hold over you.

Christmas messages: Who is Jesus Christ?

Posted on Updated on

Mathew 3 vs 13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.14 But John forbad him, saying, I have John-The-Baptist-Paintingneed to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

  1. Jesus was a humble man, though he was Lord, yet he subjected himself to be being baptized by John.
  2. John the baptist himself was embarrassed to baptize Jesus.
  3. Compare this to the way, the present Priests and Pastors behave as tin gods over their congregation
  4. Compare this to the way, Christians behave arrogantly over their subjects
  5. Prayer: O Lord give me a humble heart
