This Is My Inheritance As A Child Of God

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28

In this verse, “all things” is literally all things—the good, the bad and the ugly! Now, it does not mean that all things are from God. Some things, such as accidents, sicknesses, broken relationships and divorces are not from Him. They are from the devil or just part of the fallen world that we live in. But what this verse does tell us is that “all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”. That is our inheritance as God’s beloved children.

Do the people of the world have this inheritance? No. When bad things happen to them, they are what they are—bad things. But when bad things happen to the children of God, it does not end there. God can make those bad things work together for good. In other words, the devil may throw lemons at you, but God can take those lemons and make refreshing lemonade for you!

For example, if you have been retrenched, believe that God, who makes all things work together for good, has a better job for you. Indeed, we have received testimonies from church members who have ended up with better jobs and higher salaries after they were retrenched.

It is important you remember that God is not behind anything bad or ugly. But when those things happen, know that He can make all things work together for good. Believers are those who love God because they know that God first loved them. (1 John 4:19) And they are called according to His purpose for they have been born again and belong to Him.

My friend, because you have been born again, all things in your life will work together for good. This is your inheritance as a beloved child of God!

My Sins And Lawless Deeds God Will Remember No More. Hallelujah.

My Sins And Lawless Deeds God Will Remember No More! Hallelujah!

Hebrews 10:17
Then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

“Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.” (Romans 4:8) Hallelujah!

My friend, the reason that God does not impute any of our sins to us is that He has already imputed all of them to the body of His Son Jesus when He hung on the cross 2,000 years ago. Not only that, when God punished His Son for our sins, He caused the curse of the law to fall stroke by stroke upon Jesus’ entire body until every curse had been fully satisfied. That is why we have been redeemed from the curse of the law. (Galatians 3:13) That is why, instead of imputing sin to us, God imputes righteousness!

God wants us to know that our sins and lawless deeds He will remember no more. The words “no more” in the original Greek text carry a strong double-negative meaning. In other words, God is saying, “No way, by no means, will I ever remember your sins again!”

Beloved, since God says that He will remember your sins no more, why do you still remember them? Or for that matter, your spouse’s or neighbor’s sins? God does not want you to be conscious of sins because He is not. So rejoice! Come to Him boldly and expect Him to show you mercy and grace because He remembers your sins no more!

Bible Verses Against The Spirit Of Suicide. God Hates Suicides

Bible Verses Against The Spirit Of Suicide. God Hates Suicides

Suicide is the act of intentionally causing one’s own death. Suicide is often carried out as a result of despair, the cause of which is frequently attributed to a mental disorder such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, alcoholism, or drug abuse, as well as stress factors such as financial difficulties, troubles with interpersonal relationships, and bullying.

Thinking about suicide is scary. You may have strong feelings that are hard to deal with. You may feel like things will never be better, but you are not alone. Many people think about suicide. Thinking about suicide does not mean that you will do it. It does not mean that you are “going crazy.” Thinking about suicide is often a sign that you want to escape.

There are ways to feel better. Remember, you are not alone. You can start by talking to someone else. You can talk to a family member or friend you trust.

People who commit suicide feel that their problems are too big for them to control. They think that ending their life is the only solution, but it’s not.

Jesus loves you and He wants to help you!

Bible Verses Against The Spirit Of Suicide

This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it

John 11:4

For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.
2 Corinthians 7:10

For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again.
2 Corinthians 1:8–10

In the path of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.
Proverbs 12:28

If the LORD had not been my help,
my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence.
When I thought, “My foot slips,”
your steadfast love, O LORD, held me up.
When the cares of my heart are many,
your consolations cheer my soul.
Psalm 94:17–19

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
John 10:10–11

To you, O LORD, I cry,
and to the Lord I plead for mercy:
“What profit is there in my death,
if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it tell of your faithfulness?
Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me!
O LORD, be my helper!”
Psalm 30:8–10

Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good

I Love You Dear! In The Hands Of God, My Words Will Be Used Like Nails To Secure My Spouse’s Self-Esteem

I Love You Dear! In The Hands Of God, My Words Will Be Used Like Nails To Secure My Spouse’s Self-Esteem

The words of wise men are like goads, and masters of these collections are like well-driven nails.
Ecclesiastes 12:11

When your marriage relationship hits a trouble spot, it may be difficult to find much to praise about each other. Yet those are the times we need praise the most. So I urge you to initiate praising your spouse. Make it a deliberate effort. Bring the power of positive words to him or her in the midst of trouble.

In the verse above, Solomon gave some very descriptive characteristics of well-spoken words. When you choose to encourage and praise your spouse, your words carry the ability to prod, or goad, him or her in the right direction. And notice the result: Those words become like “well-driven nails,” the kind that secure all types of building projects.

In the hands of God, your words can be used like nails to secure your mate’s self-esteem. Your wise and truthful words bring perspective to his or her life, to your relationship and to your situation as a couple. They make finding solutions to your problems a real possibility.

You may be asking, “What if all this praise goes to my spouse’s head? Won’t he become prideful?” There’s a difference between truthful praise and flattery.

Flattery gratifies a person’s vanity, but praise is based on a person’s character and deeds. When you truthfully praise and applaud your spouse’s choices, you reinforce the value of building godly character.

Paul exhorts us, “Speak truth each one of you with his neighbor” (Ephesians 4:25). A keyword in that phrase is “truth,” which is the only real standard for bringing value to another person. Truth results in assurance and security, in worth and value. It becomes the compass during the storm that confidently steers us in the right direction.

So praise your spouse in all situations, using wisdom to meet the need of the moment, speaking truthfully to help construct character. Your words of affirmation can help rebuild what life has torn apart.

PRAY

Pray for a heart that longs to build up, not tear down.

Children Need Role Models. Let’s Talk About Sex

Children Need Role Models. Let’s Talk About Sex

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

2 Timothy 2:22

Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:18

3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;
5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5

I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil.

ROMANS 16:19

Have you ever had that wave of paralyzing dread—the one where you fear you’ll come off looking and feeling like a hypocrite if you challenge your child to uphold standards you didn’t keep too well yourself when you were younger?

For many, this feeling is especially acute when talking to children about sexual behavior. I believe this is one of the ways the enemy attempts to silence parents. But don’t allow past failures to prevent you from calling your child to the standard of God’s Word.

After all, every one of us has lied, haven’t we? Yet we still teach our children to tell the truth. When it comes to talking frankly with your preteens and teenagers about what God expects of them sexually, you dare not let the fear of an embarrassing question force you into silence.

Most children won’t ask whether or not you were a virgin prior to marriage. But even if they do—and even if you weren’t—you could answer, “That’s a good question, and someday when you’re an adult, I want to answer you more fully. But for now, that information is off-limits.”

If your child isn’t satisfied and persists in digging further, you may want to admit, “Yes, I made some mistakes I really regret,” but not go into details.

Children need role models, especially in their parents. And it’s better if they don’t know certain things about you when they’re too young to understand.

When your child is grown, in the context of an adult relationship, you can decide how much you want to reveal. But for now, don’t let vivid descriptions become stumbling blocks in their lives and in your discussions.

Keep the subject on God’s standards and on His desire for their welfare and purity. They need to hear from you what God expects of them.

1 Corinthians 10:13 –
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear

Matthew 5:28 –
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

There Is God’s Supernatural Power In The Words I Speak

There Is God’s Supernatural Power In The Words I Speak

I want to share something with you today that many believers have yet to understand. It’s a truth that can help you stay at peace, knowing the power that is yours in Christ Jesus. I think that’s why I’m so excited to write this letter—I want you to see that…

There is supernatural power in the words you speak.

When our Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again to be seated at the right hand of the Father, the Bible tells us that we as believers were also seated in Christ at the right hand of the Father (Ephesians 2:4-6).

Today, seated in Christ at the Father’s right hand, you have divine authority! Because of this, your words carry incredible, divine, and supernatural power.

Beloved, the words you speak have life-giving, creative power. What you choose to say sets in motion the kind of life you are going to live.

And more specifically…

The words you speak by faith in the days to come will positively influence the direction of your life in 2016.

Let’s look at what that means for you and your family as you approach a brand-new year. If you’ll believe that God’s Word is true and speak His promises over your life in faith, you’re going to see greater things in the year to come…
•Improved health
•Restored relationships
•Increased provision
•Renewed youth

And these blessings are just the beginning…there is no limit to the grace and goodness of God through Christ Jesus!

It is amazing to see what Jesus taught about faith and the power of words in Mark 11 after He had cursed the barren fig tree.

The disciples were astonished that the unfruitful tree had withered just as Jesus had commanded it to. It was at this moment that Jesus taught His followers about the connection between what you believe and what you say.

Look carefully and you’ll see it…

So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”

Did you catch it? Jesus used the word “says” three times, but He mentions “believes” only once.

Beloved, can you see that while right believing is important, it needs to go hand-in-hand with speaking words of faith? When you believe something, you speak it out (2 Corinthians 4:13).

Jesus mentioned “says” three times and “believes” only once because…

Giving voice to what you believe strengthens your faith and anchors your heart on God’s promises for your life.

That’s why your words are so important. Not only can you speak faith into your situation, you can speak life to your soul. So say…
•“I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!”
•“I am healed. My body is growing stronger. I am whole!”
•“I have the favor of God. Good things happen to me and through me.”
•“My sins are forgiven. I am unconditionally loved by my heavenly Father.”

When you declare your righteousness, forgiveness, and healing in Christ, hope, faith, and strength rise in your heart. It determines how you respond to challenges, how you unlock God’s power in your circumstances and the direction your life will take.

Speaking life over every situation,

I Shall Not Worry Again, For God Shall Take Very Good Care Of Me

I Shall Not Worry Again, For God Shall Take Very Good Care Of Me

Matthew 6:26
Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

Perched on a tree branch, two birds were observing passers-by rushing from one place to another. Looking at their faces, one bird asked the other, “Why is man so full of worries and cares?” The other bird answered, “Maybe they don’t have a heavenly Father like we do.”

I believe that the Lord made birds to tell us that we are of more value than many birds put together. In Matthew 10:29, Jesus said, “Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin?” Then, in Luke 12:6, He said, “Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins?” If you do the math, you will realize that these sparrows are so cheap that you can buy four of them for two copper coins, and you get one thrown in for free!

Sparrows are common creatures in Israel. Yet, not even one of these cheap birds falls to the ground without the Father’s knowledge. (Matthew 10:29) Not one of them is forgotten before Him. (Luke 12:6) So will He forget you who are of more value than all these birds put together?

Jesus said, “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.” And if your heavenly Father feeds the birds of the air, how much more will He feed you, His precious, beloved child!

“Why don’t I see the supply then?” you may ask.

The answer is worry. That is why Jesus also said, “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’…For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.” (Matthew 6:31–32)

Beloved, if your heavenly Father cares for cheap, common birds, and feeds them every day, how much more will He care for you, His dear, precious child! Let your heart be at rest as you hear Him say to you, “Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10:31)

I Must Grow In Grace In Order To Accomplish Great Things For God’s Kingdom

I Must Grow In Grace In Order To Accomplish Great Things For God’s Kingdom

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Acts 1:8

We can only advance in our spiritual maturity as the Holy Spirit comes upon us. It is then we are able, from within, to become what He has called us to be, and that is a powerful witnesses.

Jesus experienced continual growth and increase in His life from childhood. Therefore you and I must constantly be growing in our spiritual life if victory is our goal. Those who remain stagnate in their walk with God cannot walk in victory. We must grow in grace in order to accomplish great things for God’s Kingdom.

Luke 2:40,
“And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him…And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man.”

I Corinthians 13:11 says,
“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”

2 Peter 3:18 the apostle decrees,
“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”

We must always be in a process of spiritual growth for the sake of the King.

What A Great Day I Live In Because Of What Jesus Has Done For Us. The Spirit Of God Lives In Me

What A Great Day I Live In Because Of What Jesus Has Done For Us. The Spirit Of God Lives In Me

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.
Ephesians 3:16

We are infused with inner strength by the Spirit of God. As we invite God to fill us and strengthen us, something begins to happen in our spirit. There is a new enthusiasm about life and the will of God for our lives. As we recognize and yield to the Holy Spirit, God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think. We have “joy unspeakable and full of glory” (I Peter 1:8).

What a great day we live in because of what Jesus has done for us. We are redeemed because of His death, burial, resurrection, and the power of His blood.

What a powerful revelation given by the Holy Spirit. You are in Christ, Christ is in God, and Christ is in you! The Spirit of God lives in us.

Confession:
That He would grant me, according to the riches of His glory to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in my inner man! Amen! Ephesians 3:16

I Believe In You, GOD!

I Believe In You, GOD!

“Jesus said unto him, ‘If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.'”

Mark 9:23 (NKJV)

According to 1 John 4:17:…. “as he is, so are we in this world” (KJV). He is seated in heaven. That means He is in charge. And He says we are in charge here. “Whatsoever thou shalt bind here on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever thou shalt loose here on earth is loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19, KJV).

When was the last time you laid hands on the sick? When last did your son have a headache and the first thing you did was to lay hands on the child or go to your pastor for prayers. Usually, we go for Panadol because it is seems easier. When last did your meal barrel become empty and you laid hands on it for a miracle to take place. How do you prove God, if you do not believe him for anything? Why are we living in this age as if God is not real?

There was a time when there was no food to eat in the house. And I told the people living with me: “Put the pot on fire and let us begin to praise God”. Before we finished praying, a knock came on the door and there was provision. This is the type of thing that strengthens you in times of adversity. The more you prove the faithfulness of God, the more your faith grows.

Beloved, God wants to do great things for you and with you on a daily basis. Believe Him for the impossible. Whatever we have seen is nothing compared to what is coming. There is so much God wants to manifest in this day and hour that we are in. Incredible miracles! Eye popping miracles, the ones that will make people to stand in awe of your God!

The devil does not have the final say. Don’t put your faith in the doctor’s report. Put your faith in God’s report. He is God. And there are no impossibilities with Him. I have seen incredible miracles of God’s grace and all I am saying to you today is to believe. Believe for your miracles. Believe Him for your breakthrough. I assure you, He will not fail you.

Isaiah 53:1-5

Jeremiah 32:17-27

Every Word God Has Spoken Concerning My Life Shall Come To Pass, Amen

Every Word God Has Spoken Concerning My Life Shall Come To Pass, Amen

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life [. . .].”

Psalm 23:6 (KJV)

You know after God created all things in Genesis, He said this is good. But after making man in His own image and likeness, He said this is very good. The goodness of God will overshadow you everywhere you go. The goodness of God will pursue you. It will not only pursue you, it will catch up with you and overtake you.

Every word God has spoken concerning your life will come to pass. The word that God has spoken concerning you has already overruled the power of darkness. So if the devil speaks, it is too late. Whatever the devil has spoken is too late because the word of God has gone ahead of you. And it shall come to pass in your life.

The devil will not cut you short. Plane crash will not kill you. Armed robbers will not kill you. Assassins will not kill you. Charms and enchantments will not kill you. Diseases will not kill you. You will fulfil the days of your life. Your life will preach the gospel. Whatever you lay your hands upon shall succeed. Your life shall remain a testimony. Everywhere you go, your light will shine. The light that is coming from you will overshadow all darkness.

As this year draws to a close, it will not end without your testimony. If in the last 11 months nothing has happened, don’t give up, don’t lose hope, there is still so much time left in the year for God to give you that miracle. In every area of your life, the Lord will satisfy you with His goodness. This year will be your greatest year yet. The devil will not have the final word in your life. God has not brought you this far to disappoint you. If no one testifies, you will testify. It is too late for the devil. You are about to break out, break forth, breakthrough and break in. Hallelujah! Amen!

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalm 23:1-6

Salvation Prayers

If you don’t Know Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour and would like to accept him into your life as your personal Lord and Saviour, Please say this prayer:

Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from You. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward You. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that Your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send Your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your Will for the rest of my life.

Joy Overflow. What My Enemies Meant For Evil, God Is Turning Them Around For My Good

Psalms_98-4: Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. Thank You Jesus

Joy Overflow. What My Enemies Meant For Evil, God Is Turning Them Around For My Good

Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

Isaiah 12:3

You can make a withdrawal from your salvation account with joy. The wells of salvation are reservoirs of healing and blessing. Joy is your bucket to draw out your blessing. If you have great joy, you have a great bucket to draw much salvation.

James 1:2 says, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations.” He did not say that it was a joy to have multiple troubles. He said to count it joy. Look at your problems and count. One joy…two joy…three joy…then laugh at the devil! What Satan meant for evil, God is turning around for your good. God paid too high a price for your victory for you to be defeated. Ha! Ha! Ha!

One translation of James 1:2 says to count it “Maximum Joy.” I like that! Smile, laugh, jump, shout, then dance turn it up and things will turn around!

Confession:

God brought me here to have a good time now I am going to have a good time! Hallelujah!

Romans_8-28: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose

God Knows My Name. He Even Knows The Number Of Hairs On My Head

God Knows My Name. He Even Knows The Number Of Hairs On My Head

Matthew 10:30
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Every day, your hair drops. Yet, God knows how many hairs are left on your head. And He also knows how many are growing back! He knows because He bothers to count them again. When it comes to you, He always has time for every little thing about you.

So when Jesus said, “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered,” He was not exaggerating. He never exaggerates. He means what He says and He says what He means. So for the Lord to say that the very hairs of your head are all numbered means that He wants you to know that He is very interested in you and has intimate knowledge about you—your body, family, finances, relationships…everything in your life!

He knows the pain you have been having in your body. He is aware of the financial worry which you have been keeping from your family. He sees how your nasty boss is treating you. He understands the hurts you have been keeping in your heart. He hears your heart’s cry for a miracle baby.

Your Heavenly Father wants you to know that as long as something concerns you, He does not overlook it.

God knows you intimately. He knows every small problem you are worried about and every single burden you have. And when you approach Him for help, He has all the time for you as if no one else exists. That is how valuable you are to Him and how absorbed He is in you! Thank You Jesus.

O Lord Give Me The Boldness To Always Step Out In Faith, To Demonstrate Your Awesome Power To The World

O Lord Give Me The Boldness To Always Step Out In Faith, To Demonstrate Your Awesome Power To The World

“And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.”

Mark 16:20 (KJV)

After the Lord had spoken and given instructions to his disciples, He was received up into heaven. Immediately, they went forth and began to preach everywhere. And as they stepped out in faith in obedience to God’s word, God’s power was demonstrated mightily.

Do you know what the church has done? We decorate our stained windows. We have a good choir and smiling ushers and greeters. We preach good sermons. And we are now sitting down in church waiting for sinners to come to us. We make the church beautiful and use all kinds of media promotion. But that is not God’s strategy. God’s strategy is that power is released in obedience. Power is not released when we act contrary to divine instructions.

In Deuteronomy 28:1-2, the word of God declares: “and it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God to observe and to do all his commandments,…………all these blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee” (KJV). Notice that God began to work with the disciples when they chose to function in obedience. “The Lord working with them” God is saying in essence; the new strategy is that I am not going to do it alone. “We will work together”. The disciples went everywhere. They did not sit down in church. We have not seen signs because we are sitting down.

According to Ephesians 5:30: “we are members of His body, of his flesh and of his bones” (KJV). That means that the anointing can only flow today through us. We are the body, He is the Head. The head can’t get things done without the body. Jesus cannot heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out devils or do good to any person if you don’t do it. No one can experience Jesus if you don’t step out in faith to demonstrate His power. May the Lord give you boldness. Amen!

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
Mark 16:15-20

 

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Matthew 28:18-20

It Is Awesome For God To Send His Son Jesus Christ To Die In My Place

It Is Awesome For God To Send His Son Jesus Christ To Die In My Place

12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Philippians 2:12-13

Salvation is a wonderful gift of God to mankind, it is awesome for God to send His son to die in our place and thereby redeem us from sin and satan and reconcile us to Himself. It is a free gift from God and once we confess our sins, ask for forgiveness and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, we are saved, it’s straightforward.
Nevertheless, many Christians struggle in their walk with God, as they feel once they get saved things just begin to work out, they feel they ought to become holy and immune to temptation automatically. Our text today makes it clear that, there is work to be done on our own part, it is like the case of a student who wants a university degree and has been given a free entry and scholarship into the university, the student still has to study, he can’t just assume he will graduate automatically without any effort on his own part, he has to attend lectures, study hard, write exams and pass.
So our walk with God requires ‘work’, we have to cultivate, carry out the goal, and fully complete our salvation; we need to work it for it to work for us. We need to know that it is a walk of Faith, (2 Corinthians 5:7), and not of fear that comes from sight walking, when we pray, we should believe that God will answer and ‘act’ accordingly.
We also ought to walk with self-distrust, with serious caution, tenderness of conscience, watchfulness against temptation, timidly shrinking from whatever might offend God and discredit the name of Christ.
Most important of all , we must know that we cannot do it by our power, and that it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in us [energizing and creating in us the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.
It becomes easier when we have more of God in our lives and less of ‘us’ in us.

Confession

I will not be lazy with regards of my salvation, I have the grace and strength to continuously work it out. Hallelujah!

Are You Industrious? Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Are You Industrious? Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Memorise:
Love Not Sleep, Lest Thou Come To Poverty; Open Thine Eyes, And Thou Shalt Be Satisfied With Bread.
Proverb 20:13

Read: Proverbs 31:10-13
10 Who Can Find A Virtuous Woman? For Her Price Is Far Above Rubies.
11 The Heart Of Her Husband Doth Safely Trust In Her, So That He Shall Have No Need Of Spoil.
12 She Will Do Him Good And Not Evil All The Days Of Her Life.
13 She Seeketh Wool, And Flax, And Worketh Willingly With Her Hands.

Message
In The School Of Life, Those Who Are Prone To Giving Excuses End Up As Failures. Greatness In Life Is Not For The Slothful But For The Diligent. It Is Not For Men Of Theoretical Faith, But For Those Who Can Put Their Faith Into Action. There Are Many People Walking Around Blind To Opportunities. They Always Complain About The Economic Situation Of Their Country, And For This Reason, They Have Refused To Take Their Destinies In Their Own Hands. Nothing Moves Until You Move. There Are Opportunities All Around You, But If You Can’t See Them, They Will Not Translate Into Tangible Results. To Be Industrious Is To Be Hardworking, Conscientious, Diligent And Productive. John 15:16 Says:

“Ye Have Not Chosen Me, But I Have Chosen You, And Ordained You, That Ye Should Go And Bring Forth Fruit, And That Your Fruit Should Remain: That Whatsoever Ye Shall Ask Of The Father In My Name, He May Give It You.”
God Expects His Children To Be Productive And Be Creative In Their Thinking. The Fact That You Belong To God Should Make You See Solutions To Issues Where Others Only See Problems. The Spiritual Controls The Physical; This Is Why You Need To Ask God To Open Your Spiritual Eyes. You Need To See The Good Things Coming Your Way From Afar Off, So That As They Come, You Can Tap Into Them. There Are Many People Sitting And Living Around Opportunities Without Exploring Them. There Is No Future For Lazy Fellows.

The Life God Expects From The Industrious Is A Life Of Fruitfulness In Every Area. Fruitfulness Is A Covenant Benefit Of God’s Children. If You Are Still In School, You Need To Be Industrious In Order To Graduate With Excellent Grades. If You Are Serving In God’s Ministry, You Need To Be Industrious, So That You Can Access The Anointing Required For Doing Spiritual Exploits. If You Are Engaged In Business, You Need To Be Hard-Working To Make More Profits And Access Greater Business Opportunities. If You Are In The Corporate World, Being Industrious Will Put You On The Cutting Edge Of Your Career. You Need To Keep Growing. You Need To Develop Yourself For The Glorious Future You See Ahead Of You. You Must Not Be Distracted With Those Things That Will Not Enhance The Quick Actualisation Of Your God-Given Dreams. There Is No Need Losing Your Head Over What You Don’t Have. What You Have Is More Than Enough For Your Breakthrough. Never Be Afraid Of Starting Small. Ask The Lord To Open Your Eyes So That You Can Multiply The Seed In Your Hands To Become A Forest.

Key Point:
Whatever You Don’t Value Can Never Add Value To You.

Attracting Greater Love Of God. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Attracting Greater Love Of God. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Memorise:
For It Became Him, For Whom Are All Things, And By Whom Are All Things, In Bringing Many Sons Unto Glory, To Make The Captain Of Their Salvation Perfect Through Sufferings.
Hebrews 2:10

Read: Genesis 22:15-18
15 And The Angel Of The Lord Called Unto Abraham Out Of Heaven The Second Time,
16 And Said, By Myself Have I Sworn, Saith The Lord, For Because Thou Hast Done This Thing, And Hast Not Withheld Thy Son, Thine Only Son:
17 That In Blessing I Will Bless Thee, And In Multiplying I Will Multiply Thy Seed As The Stars Of The Heaven, And As The Sand Which Is Upon The Sea Shore; And Thy Seed Shall Possess The Gate Of His Enemies;
18 And In Thy Seed Shall All The Nations Of The Earth Be Blessed; Because Thou Hast Obeyed My Voice.

Message
Your Love For God Is Something You Must Prove To Be Genuine. God Is Not Satisfied With Verbal Affirmations Only. He Is Not Satisfied With Promises To Love Surrounded By Procrastination. He Wants To See Your Love For Real; Hence, 1 John 3:18 Says:
“My Little Children, Let Us Not Love In Word, Neither In Tongue; But In Deed And In Truth.”
Have You Been Able To Prove Your Love For God Beyond Words? One Beautiful Truth Here Is That Whenever You Demonstrate Your Love For God, It Will Attract Greater Love From Him. This Principle Can Also Be Seen In The Natural World.
If I Smile At You, Unless You Are Angry With Me, You Will Return The Smile. Every Time You Prove To God That You Love Him, He Will Reciprocate By Showing You Greater Love. In Acts 20:35, Apostle Paul Echoed The Words Of Our Lord Jesus Christ That It Is Better To Give Than To Receive. Many People Find It Hard To Understand This. Simply Put, It Is Better To Give Because When You Give, You Automatically Open The Door To Receive More Than What You Gave.

The Act Of Giving Is Subject To The Law Of Harvest; Therefore, Everyone Who Gives Receives Something Much More Than What Was Given, Because The Harvest Is Usually Greater Than The Seed Sown. Hebrews 2:9-10 Tells Us That When God Gave His Only Begotten Son, He Brought Many More Sons Into Glory. God Gave One Son And Now Has Millions Of Sons And Daughters From Different Parts Of The World. There Are Some Desires That You May Not Receive Until You Give. There Are Certain Great Requests That May Appear Illusive Until You Give Your Best Seed. For You To Be Able To Receive All Your Requests, You Must First Be Prepared To Pay Any Price By Giving Anything God Wants You To.
What You Are Prepared To Give Determines The Extent To Which God Is Compelled To Give To You In Return. Are You Ready To Pay The Ultimate Sacrifice? Sacrificial Giving Never Goes Unrewarded. After Jesus Laid Down His Life For The Sins Of The World, He Was Rewarded With The Name Above Every Other Name (Philippians 2:8-11). Similarly, After Abraham Demonstrated His Love For God, The Lord Swore To Bless Abraham And His Children Beyond Measure, Promising To Multiply His Generations Like The Sand On The Seashore. What Are You Doing To Prove Your Love For God Today?

Key Point:
Every Act Of Love Towards God Is A Seed Sown On The Best Soil, Which Will Definitely Generate A Great Harvest Of Love.

I Am Blessed Beyond Measures In Christ Jesus. The Spirit Of Excellence Lives In Me

I Am Blessed Beyond Measures In Christ Jesus. The Spirit Of Excellence Lives In Me

Deuteronomy 28:4
“Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

Would you want to buy a chair that Jesus made? I would, even if it cost US$1,000 because it would be of superb quality. Whatever Jesus did, He did it with perfect excellence.

And because Christ is in you, the things which you produce will be of exceptional quality too. That includes your children, who will be champions. Deuteronomy 28:4 says, “Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks”.

God was using terms that the Israelites understood since they were farmers and shepherds. Today, “your ground” is the place of your work. This means that “the produce” of your work shall be of excellent quality.

That is not all. God promises that quantity will always follow quality because Deuteronomy 28:11 says that the Lord will “grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body,” which means that you will have plenty of children, “in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground,” which means that your business will flourish and you will be a leading producer in the area of your specialty.

My friend, your excellence and plenty do not come by your efforts. They come by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, who paid for you to have divine provision—“though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich”. (2 Corinthians 8:9)

Jesus was made destitute of all material things at the cross. He had nothing! As He hung on the cross, He watched the Roman soldiers gamble for His robe. His last possession on earth was gambled away. He became poor, so that you could be blessed with the excellent and the plenty!

God Will Not Remember My Sins Or Count Them Against Me, All Because Of Jesus

God Will Not Remember My Sins Or Count Them Against Me, All Because Of Jesus

Romans 4:7–8
“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.”

Some people think that if they were more “right” with God, then He would hear their prayers. For example, they sometimes believe that if they had not quarrelled with their wives or had those bad thoughts earlier in the day, then God would answer their prayers.

God is not like that. He wants you to know beyond any doubt that you can always come to His throne of grace with boldness and have every confidence that you will receive His mercy and grace. (Hebrews 4:16) You see, because of Jesus’ finished work on the cross, you are already right with God. You don’t need to do anything to make yourself more right with God.

In fact, by faith in Jesus, you have received the righteousness of God Himself! (2 Corinthians 5:21) And no matter how many mistakes you make, you will never lose that righteousness because in the first place, God gave it to you apart from your works. (Romans 4:5–6) In other words, God did not impute righteousness to you because you were good, but because you believed in Jesus.

Because of what Jesus has done for you at the cross, all your sins—past, present and future—are forgiven. God will by no means ever remember your sins or count them against you! (Hebrews 8:12, 10:17)

My friend, because Jesus has been punished for your sins, today, God is not counting your sins against you. This means that your sins won’t stop Him from hearing and responding to your prayers. So you can always run into His presence knowing that you can boldly stand in and enjoy His presence and His love.

When you know this truth, it is going to set you free in your relationship with God. You can talk to Him without fear or any sense of condemnation. You can practice His presence and trust that He always hears you. Should something happen at home or at work, you don’t always have to call for your church leaders—you pray and God hears you!

Beloved, you are righteous in Christ and God hears your prayers—all because of Jesus!

Thank You Jesus

Ruth 4:15
And may he be to you a restorer of life and a nourisher of your old age…

Famine impoverished the life of Naomi, an Israelite. But it was the deaths of her husband and two sons that left her completely destitute. (Ruth 1:1–5) Or so she thought, until Boaz, who was a wealthy and close relative, entered her life.

As her kinsman-redeemer, Boaz married Ruth, Naomi’s widowed daughter-in-law. And through that union, Naomi had a grandson. The birth of her grandson gave her a new lease of life, causing the womenfolk in her village to declare that the restorer of life and the nourisher of her old age had come into her life. (Ruth 4:14–16)

Boaz is a picture of Jesus, our Kinsman-Redeemer. Jesus became our kinsman when He was born into this world as one like us. And He became our Redeemer when He paid with His life and blood at the cross to redeem us.

Jesus gave Himself to us as our restorer of life and nourisher of our old age. When the restorer of life is in our lives, what we have lost can be restored. (Joel 2:25−26) And with the nourisher of our old age in us, our bodies can be gloriously renewed even though we advance in our years.

That is why when Moses died at the age of 120, his eyes were not dim and his natural vigor was not diminished. (Deuteronomy 34:7) Caleb, at 85 years old, could still drive out the giants from the land. God had literally nourished his body and made it strong for war. (Joshua 14:11) Sarah was certainly rejuvenated in her old age by God for she was still desirable to a king at the age of 90. (Genesis 20:1–2) God even renewed her womb. She received strength to conceive seed (Hebrews 11:11), giving birth to Isaac in her old age.

Beloved, God is outside of time and your faith in Him brings you into this timeless zone. There, what the years have stolen will be restored. And even as your years increase, you will not grow weak and weary because the restorer of life and nourisher of your old age is in you!

My God Is No Respecter Of Persons. If I Act On His Word, Without Doubt, He Will Honour My Faith

My God Is No Respecter Of Persons. If I Act On His Word, Without Doubt, He Will Honour My Faith

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”

John 14:12 (KJV)

In our text today, Jesus began by saying: “Verily, verily [. . .]” (John 14:12, KJV). In other words, Jesus is saying, “I am telling you the truth that I know.” Jesus Christ goes on to say, “[. . .] the works that I do shall he do also [. . .]” (John 14:12, KJV). Is Jesus a liar? Certainly not. He cannot lie. He is the truth and everything He speaks is the truth. Beloved, let us not cower like failures and defeated people. Let us not cower as if we are in trouble. We must begin to exercise our God-given authority in Christ.

In the early ’70s, when the revival hit Nigeria, people were doing all kinds of crazy things and getting results. I’m talking about believers. This is why the word spread the way it did. This is how churches spread. The believers were doing whatever they read in the Bible. When they read that Jesus said, “Go and spread the gospel”, they moved from city to city and saw incredible miracles.

I know of a believer who read that Jesus said, “Go to every city and preach the gospel. Heal the sick, cast out the devil, and raise the dead.” The man began to go to every house. After knocking he would ask: “Is there anyone who died here?” He went from street to street till late in the evening when he finally found a place where somebody had died. A little child had died in the morning. When he said he wanted to raise the child the people looked at him and told him that he was crazy. This man was a new believer. He acted on the word of God, and the Lord honoured his faith. After he prayed, the child sneezed and came back to life. Praise God!

Beloved, God is no respecter of persons. If you act on God’s word, without doubt, He will also honour your faith.

Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.

2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.

5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
Acts 3:1-6

4 Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.

5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.

6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.

7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.

8 And there was great joy in that city.
Acts 8:4-8

In Christ Jesus, I Have Peace With God

In Christ Jesus, I Have Peace With God

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Romans 5:1-2

People often seek contentment by trying to improve their appearance, physical fitness, financial situation, or social status—or by abusing substances. But such things can’t bring tranquillity of heart or mind. Only a relationship with Jesus leads to true peace.

Prior to salvation, we were slaves to sin and living in opposition to God (Col. 1:21). Our transgressions had formed a barrier of hostility between Him and us, which we were helpless to cross on our own. Without God’s intervention, we could not have found the way of peace. But our heavenly Father provided the perfect solution to our sin problem. He sent His Son to pay for our iniquities and remove the separation that existed between us and Him.

When we trusted Jesus as our Saviour, we were reconciled to the Lord (Rom. 5:10) and no longer at odds with Him. In Christ, we have peace with the Father.

Our triune God has provided everything we need for inner tranquillity. The Father opened the way for us to be in His family. Jesus continually offers His peace so we can experience serenity of mind and heart (John 14:27). And the Holy Spirit cultivates the fruit of peace in our lives (Gal. 5:22).
