REALITIES OF SELFISHNESS

MEMORISE:
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 2 Timothy 3:2

READ:
Mark 12:28-31

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 73-77 & Micah 6:9-7:7

MESSAGE:
On the 22nd of this month, we saw that those Christians who always want everything to revolve around them and who always want to be in charge are yet to be broken. Another sign of not being broken is selfishness. The Holy spirit, speaking through Paul, has forewarned the Church of God that selfishness will be the hallmark of sins committed during the last days. 2 Timothy 3:2 says,
“For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,”
Selfishness is all about falling in love with oneself to a point where everyone and everything else is second place. The height of selfishness is when you love yourself to the point of idolizing yourself; this is a form of idolatry, the Holy Spirit reveals one class of such people in Philippians 3:19, where He said:
“Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.”
It’s unfortunate that a lot of selfish people are mounting the pulpit of God today, parading themselves as ministers of the gospel. Such people do not serve the God of Heaven, but rather they serve their own stomachs. The goal and desires of selfish people revolve around the mundane things of this world. They can never be heavenly-minded.
Selfishness negates God’s eternal word in Mark 12:30 which says:
“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.”
God says you should love Him with all you have, but selfishness says “No, how can I love you when I have not even loved myself enough.” If you are a lover of self, you will always run into problems with God. To obey divine instructions and commands, you will often be required to displease yourself, and that is what a selfish person cannot do. If you are selfish, you will find it almost impossible to please God. A selfish person will hear messages on tithing but will find it difficult to tithe. Why? He would be calculating what he would lose if he gives up the tithe, and what he stands to gain from keeping those funds. A selfish person has no understanding of spiritual things. Are you controlled by love for God or by selfishness?

KEY POINT:
As a young convert, you are to focus more on yourself in prayer. However, as you grow in the Lord, you are to focus more on others.

HYMN 6:
1. Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know.

Refrain:
Oh, deeper yet, I pray,
And higher every day,
And wiser, blessed Lord,
In Thy precious, holy Word.

2. Deeper, deeper, blessed Holy Spirit,
Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus,
And His perfect will.

3. Deeper, deeper! though it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
Let me fruitful grow.

4. Deeper, higher, every day in Jesus,
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conqu’ror, and in His own image
Perfected at last.

5. Deeper, deeper in the faith of Jesus,
Holy faith and true;
In His pow’r and soul exulting wisdom
Let me peace pursue.

OVERCOMING LIKE JESUS

MEMORISE:
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
Revelation 3:21

READ:
Revelation 3:21-22
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 78-80 & Micah 7:8-20

MESSAGE:
Man’s surest source of rest is Jesus Christ because He never breaks His promises (Matthew 11:28-29, 2 Corinthians 1:20). In John 16:33, He assures us that as long as we are in this world, tribulations and problems will come, but because He successfully overcome them, He will see us through if we put our trust in Him. Therefore, because He overcame and we are following in His footsteps, we are also bound to overcome. Are you struggling with sin and expressing doubts on whether you can ever overcome like Jesus did? Fear not and do not doubt! You can overcome that besetting sin! The truth with such sin is that the one who keeps falling into them has not truly made up his or her mind to stop them. The Bible declares that sin shall not have dominion over you, and God cannot lie (Romans 6:14). If you are therefore falling into sin and you probe yourself a little deeper, you will find some level of tolerance for that sin, or some excuse you always give for that sin, or even some iota of likeness for that sin. If the devil can find any of these in you, he will celebrate, knowing that any of these can keep you perpetually at the bus stop of that sin. If you are serious about stopping a bad habit, you will have zero-tolerance for it.
“To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.” Revelation 3:21
God does not have double standards in the criteria He uses for allowing people into Heaven, or for giving them rewards for work done on earth. Jesus Christ is God’s standard. So if you will enter into eternal rest in Heaven, you must meet with God’s standard as exemplified by Jesus Christ. If you will be rewarded by God in heaven, Jesus says you must be prepared to overcome the same way He overcame while He was here on earth. You can run the Christian race without stress when you follow in His steps. Have you taken pains to study the life of Jesus? Have you noted how He responded to temptations, sin, enemies, friends, difficulties, lack, needs, challenges in ministry, and betrayal by associates? God expects you to respond as Jesus did in all these situations. If you do so, you will be granted access to the privileges reserved for overcomers in Heaven.

KEY POINT:
You cannot overcome if you fail to study Jesus Christ and respond to situations the way He did.

HYMN 2:
1. What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

2. Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged—
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

3. Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge—
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.

4. Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised
Thou wilt all our burdens bear;
May we ever, Lord, be bringing
All to Thee in earnest prayer.
Soon in glory bright, unclouded,
There will be no need for prayer—
Rapture, praise, and endless worship
Will be our sweet portion there.

HOLD THE FORT

MEMORISE:
And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. Luke 9:62

READ:
Luke 9:61-62
61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 81-88 & Nahum 1

MESSAGE:
When you walk with God, not only must you be obedient, your obedience must also be complete. From the story of how Elisha stuck with Elijah till the latter was taken up to heaven, we learn that until you obey to the very end, certain blessings may not be received, and certain promises may not be fulfilled by God (2 Kings 2:1-15). This is a very serious issue as it calls for endurance. Would Elijah have been raptured if he had refused to go on to Jordan, after obeying God’s instructions to go to Bethel and Jericho, and after several years of obedience to God in ministry? I very much doubt it. Similarly, if Elisha had not served and followed Elijah till the very end, would he have received a double portion of the Spirit on his master? I don’t think so.
“And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.” Matthew 10:22
Beloved, to get very special blessings or reward from God, you must be ready to serve Him till you take your very last breath. You must pay your tithes, obey Him, win souls, worship Him, and follow peace with all men until your very last second on earth. Heaven is not for those who run the marathon for years and give up just a little before the finish line; rather, it is for those who endure all things to the very end.
“And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:62
In God’s Kingdom, there is no room for half measures. It is either you are following Him to the end or you are not following Him at all. If you have decided to serve Him, please don’t stop to look back! Looking back can disqualify you, rendering you unfit for God’s kingdom. Today, it is rare to get a committed worker or minister like Elisha, who would be doggedly determined to reach his goal without being discouraged, distracted or disillusioned. Have you turned aside from God’s calling on your life? Are you busy making excuses as to why you cannot obey God, saying “after all, God understands”? Sorry, God does not understand you are going back on your commitments. He does not understand compromise. If you are in such a state, come out fast and hold the fort to the very end!

KEY POINT:
You cannot afford to stop your race to heaven now, because you have put in so much to get to where you are today.

HYMN 14:
1. Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise.

2. Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee.

3. Take my voice and let me sing,
Always, only for my King.
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.

4. Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.

5. Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

BACKSLIDING NOT AN OPTION.

MEMORISE:
Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. 1 Corinthians 10:12

READ:
Matthew 27:3-5
3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 89-92 & Nahum 2:1-3:4

MESSAGE:
One unfortunate thing about backsliding is that backsliders often fall so slowly that they hardly notice their deteriorating state. By the time some of them realise how far they have gone, it is rather too late. Are you a backslider? May the Lord restore you fully to Himself today! According to James 1:14-15, backsliding is a process that progresses from lust to sin, and ultimately ends with death. In Luke 22:3-6, Judas accepted to be paid 30 pieces of silver to betray his Master. He must have thought he was going to make some quick, free money. He probably believed that nobody would be able to capture Jesus. After all, how could anyone apprehend the man who calmed the storms by His word? However, after the plot blew up in his face, he felt so disappointed in himself that he returned the money and committed suicide by hanging himself. The question is, why steal or accumulate what you are not going to spend? Do you know that some people, who are stealing, particularly from God, will not be able to spend their evil loot? Those who steal God’s money to buy a car are only driving a moving coffin which can claim their lives at any time.
“Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” 1 Corinthians 10:12
On the straight and narrow way to Heaven, overconfidence has killed a lot of people, preventing them from making it to the very end. A case in point is Samson. His fall from grace, which led eventually to his tragic death, was a gradual process. From violating little instructions not to eat anything from a dead animal as a Nazarite, to unwholesome jesting and riddles that made light of the commandment of God he had broken, to visiting a harlot, and eventually ending his ministry on Delilah’s laps (Judges 14-16, Numbers 6:1-21). Overconfidence has brought many people to the pitiable place where they are now. Always remember that nobody can stand by his or her own power alone, except God helps the fellow. In fact, we are so weak that we need to always rely on God’s strength to live the Christian life. Have you ever thought or even boasted that you cannot fall? You are just like Peter who boasted that he would never deny Christ, but at the end of the day he denied Him thrice (Matthew 26:31-36). Recognize your weakness and engage in regular Bible study, prayers and fasting to draw strength from God. Furthermore, deliberately avoid any appearance of evil that can tempt you, and break any tie that can lure you back into sin. The Lord will keep you from falling, and He will restore you if you are already down.

ACTION POINT:
Pray that God will keep genuine Christian leaders across the globe from falling.

HYMN 11:
1. I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
No turning back, no turning back.

2. The world behind me, the cross before me;
The world behind me, the cross before me;
The world behind me, the cross before me;
No turning back, no turning back.

3. Though none go with me, still I will follow;
Though none go with me, still I will follow;
Though none go with me, still I will follow;
No turning back, no turning back.

4. My cross I’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
My cross I’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
My cross I’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
No turning back, no turning back.

5. Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
No turning back, no turning back.

TITHING IS TRUSTING.

MEMORISE:
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5

READ:
Proverbs 3:5-7
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 93-101 & Nahum 3:5-19

MESSAGE:
To experience exploits in your life, you must have a personal relationship with God. You must believe that He lives and love Him with all your heart. You must also learn to trust in Him. That command to pay tithes on your earnings simply places a demand on you to trust God. Your response to this command shows the levels of trust you have lived in Him. If you can pay your tithes correctly, it shows that you trust god for your livelihood, but if you find it difficult to be faithful in doing this, it simply shows that you trust more in your earning than in God to sustain you. After I became newly born again and we were taught to pay tithes, I laughed and said in my mind, “These people do not know that I am a mathematician. If 100% is not enough for me, how can 90% be enough after I have paid 10% as tithes? Thank you very much! Even though these people are not educated, they still want to use their smartness to take 10% of my income from me. Let them try and take it”. However, down the line, God convinced me by Himself and I observed remarkable changes in my life.
In those days, I was a lecturer in the university. I had a car but was afraid to drive in Lagos, so I got a driver. At the end of the month, I would pay my driver his salary, but by the middle of the next month, I would have to borrow money from him to buy petrol (gasoline). This happened month after month. I continued to struggle with my finances and even had to spend all my earnings. However, when I started paying my tithes, I suddenly realized I did not need a driver anymore, because boldness came from nowhere and I could now drive myself, also, I did not have to visit hospitals again because I now had the Great Physician as my doctor. My children did not fall sick again, and that leakage in my finances was blocked off. All of a sudden, doors of opportunities began to open to me because I trusted the Lord. Are you still struggling with tithing? If you are, it only shows that you do not trust God to take care of you. The truth is, whatever you are paid may never be sufficient to meet all your needs because you are limited to that source, whereas you are open to various devourers. In contrast, when you tithe, you will have access to resources beyond your income because God’s storehouse will be opened to you, and he will also block every source of losses in your life. It is a matter of choice. Why don’t you start trusting God from today by paying your tithes faithfully?

KEY POINT:
It is shocking to know that quite a number of God’s children cannot trust God with their finances.

HYMN 14:
1. Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise.

2. Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee.

3. Take my voice and let me sing,
Always, only for my King.
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.

4. Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.

5. Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by nicemuyoo: 1:22pm On Dec 03, 2017
The bible verses mentioned below has been twisted and abused to support tithing. I would give you the true scriptural interpretation of it not the twisted theological version of it preached in churches. Jesus asked to see the coin they used for payment. He said whose property his this? Caesars. Who's inscription is on it? Caesars . who has authority over this coin / who created this coin? Caesars. So the money belongs to Caesar it is his creation. So this monetary note has nothing to do with God , God does not want it, it is a creation of man for mankind, so give it to Caesar if he demands for it! But give unto God was he demands your soul, heart, love, obedience, worship, your body as a living sacrifice holy and acceptable which is truth worship. GOD a spiritual external being demands all this things. David said silver and Gold , riches he does not want.
There is a difference between theological teachings and truth scriptures; that you have to understand if you want to know the truth and accept it.

4They came and said to Him, “Teacher, we know that You are truthful and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to pay a poll-tax to Caesar, or not? 15“Shall we pay or shall we not pay?” But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, “Why are you testing Me? Bring Me a denarius to look at.” 16They brought one. And He said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?” And they said to Him, “Caesar’s.” 17And Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they were amazed at Him.

WORTH CELEBRATING

MEMORISE:
Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. Luke 10:20

READ:
Luke 10:17-20

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 102-105 & Habakkuk 1:1-2:1

MESSAGE:
If you are sure of your salvation from sin, you need to be grateful to God. The reason is that there is nothing else in the whole wide world that can transform a sinner into a saint other than the Name of Jesus and the power of His Blood. Acts 4:12 says,
” Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
No hero from any country can save you; neither can any prophet from any age or dispensation deliver you. No amount of money can buy you out of Hell, and no level of good works or moral uprightness can redeem you either. Only faith in the Name of Jesus and faith in the cleansing power of His Blood can save you. Thank God that Jesus fully paid the price of our redemption! If He had only paid in part, you can be sure that no one would have been saved today, going by Satan’s antecedents. However, Jesus fully paid for our redemption – Hallelujah! To show that the price has been paid in full, shortly before He died on the cross, He publicly declared “It is finished”. (John 19:30). Therefore, you ought to daily thank God for your salvation. How often do you appreciate Him for saving your soul?
Today, many believers celebrate their birthdays, graduation from school, promotion at the office, appointments, winning big contracts and other major achievements in life, but many of these people forget to even say “Thank You Jesus for the salvation of my soul”. This is the benefit that should give you the greatest joy! After the 70 disciples sent out by the Lord for evangelism returned with fantastic testimonies of the success of their outing, the Lord shocked them by telling them that they were rejoicing over what was not the main issue. He then told them what the object of their joy should be:
“Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:20
Your salvation from sin is far more important than any other achievements you have on earth. Great is the value that God and the whole of heaven place on it. You should therefore thank God for it every day of your life; it is well worth it.

KEY POINT:
If you knew the severity of eternal hell, you would treasure the salvation of your soul and thank God always for it.

HYMN 12:
1 How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believer's ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.

2 It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
'Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary rest.

3 Jesus, my Shepherd, Husband, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest, and King;
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
Accept the praise I bring.

4 Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou art
I'll praise Thee as I ought.

5 Till then I would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath;
And may the music of Thy Name
Refresh my soul in death!

DATE: TUESDAY 5TH DECEMBER 2017

THEME: KNOWLEDGE DELIVERS

MEMORISE:
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Proverb 4:7

READ: Daniel 2:46-49
2:46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.
2:47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.
2:48 Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon.
2:49 Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.

MESSAGE:
The Scriptures declare that wisdom is a major asset we must acquire (Proverb 4:7). To get wisdom, you have to first lay its foundation stones with knowledge. What you know can determine your position in life. It was what Joseph knew, together with the ability to interpret dreams that God used to move him from prison to the throne (Genesis 41:1-44). In other words, the stop-gap between you and your place of destiny is knowledge. Can you truthfully say that you know enough to get you to your place of destiny? If your answer is in the negative, then start acquiring knowledge today. In many corporate organizations, preference is given to those who have acquired more knowledge than others. This is why there is a tendency to select employees with higher degrees for higher positions in these organizations. So don’t just remain stagnant in knowledge, acquire more of it! Enroll for higher degrees and relevant online or offline training programmes to position yourself for a more successful career ahead of time. What you know can promote you and bring you before kings.
Furthermore, what you know can deliver you from death. No wonder the Lord, in Hosea 4:6a, said:
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:”
It was the information Daniel and his colleagues received from God that delivered them and the rest of the wise men of Babylon from death. In other words, what you don’t know can kill you. Ignorance is not just a disease but a killer – a worse killer than some diseases. Ignorance is a terrible destroyer! Lack of knowledge can lead to a lot of wasteful spending. For example, if a person doesn’t know the importance of maintaining good hygiene, he or she will fall sick often and waste money on treatments that could have been avoided. Do you know that many people are being taken advantage of by the devil because they do not know their rights and privileges in God’s kingdom? They do not know that they have been healed by the stripes of Jesus, and so they continue in sickness. If you fail to know that Jesus has paid the price for you to be rich, you will remain in poverty and even celebrate it like some people do today. What do you know?

ACTION POINT:
If you do not yet have a degree and you are less than 60years, consider enrolling for one.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:

Habakkuk 2:2-20

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

HYMN 1: MY FAITH LOOKS UP TO THEE
1. My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Saviour divine!
Now hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
Oh, let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!

2. May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
Oh, may my love to Thee
Pure, warm, and changeless be,
A living fire!

3. While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.

4. When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold, sullen stream
Shall o’er me roll;
Blest Saviour, then in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
Oh, bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul!

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

MEMORISE:
I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. Habakkuk 2:1

READ:
Habakkuk 2:1-3
1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.
2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 108-112 & Habakkuk 3

MESSAGE:
The power of vision is one very crucial lesson we can learn from Elisha’s unshakable focus when his master was about to be taken up to heaven (2 kings 2:1-15). Vision gives direction. What you see is what you attain, and what you focus on determines what comes to you in life. You can never rise above your vision. While speaking to Abraham concerning His promise that Abraham’s descendants would inherit the land of Canaan, the Lord plainly told him that what he would possess would be determined by the extent of his vision. Genesis 13:15 says,
“For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.”
People have often said that what the mind can conceive can be achieved. What can you see? What can you picture or envision concerning your future? For your mind to be able to see clearly, you have to be born again and have a recreated spirit which is capable of seeing things the way God sees them (Romans 12:2).
In addition, what you focus on is equally very important. This is because what you focus on expands and fills your sight. Your focus affects you significantly, shapes your life and determines what you attract to yourself. The sons of the prophets in all three locations Elijah visited before his rapture to heaven focused on loss. They focused on the fact that their national prophet would soon be raptured, and they would soon be without their leader. Consequently, that was exactly what they got. On the other hand, Elisha focused on his singular goal of receiving a double portion of the Spirit of his master, Elijah, and he got it. We have a way of attracting what we focus on. What or who is your focus? Hebrews 12:1 says we should look unto Jesus. In other words, it says we should make Jesus Christ our focus. Furthermore, 2 Corinthians 3:18 says,
“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
When we focus on Jesus, we will begin to change from what we are into what He is. Focusing on Jesus is a major change medium that will definitely make us what we ought to be. Until you focus on Him, you will unknowingly be focusing on other things, individuals or even yourself. What is your focus today?

ACTION POINT:
Catalogue what you spend your time doing in a day, and this will give you a good indication of what your focus really is.

HYMN 7:
1. O Jesus, I have promised to serve Thee to the end;
Be Thou forever near me, my Master and my Friend;
I shall not fear the battle if Thou art by my side,
Nor wander from the pathway if Thou wilt be my Guide.

2. Oh, let me hear Thee speaking in accents clear and still,
I dare not trust my judgment: Thy way shall be my will;
Oh, speak to reassure me, to hasten or control;
Oh, speak, and help me listen, Thou Guardian of my soul.

3. O Jesus, Thou hast promised to all who follow Thee
That where Thou art in glory there shall Thy servant be;
And Jesus, I have promised to serve Thee to the end—
Oh, give me grace to follow, my Master and my Friend.

4. Oh, let me see Thy footprints, and in them plant mine own;
My hope to follow duly is in Thy strength alone;
Oh, guide me, call me, draw me, uphold me to the end;
And then in Heav’n receive me, my Saviour and my Friend.

“He doth withdraw himself to look in, may presently afford unto him perfect ease and tranquility.”
We begin this analysis by looking at a fairly advanced level monograph that is thus marketed towards students well on their path towards total indoctrination. The “Illuminati Section” which now comprises the 12th degree of AMORC’s many monographs, promises spiritual seekers the power to become intermediaries between the divine cosmic and the grand Imperator himself. Let’s examine how this monograph goes about establishing those claims.

The famous opinion, which sets the theme for this monograph, is drawn from the great authority of famed Roman Emperor and Stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius. The full passage which can be found on www.amorconline.com seems to expound upon the benefits of isolation and separate from society. According to the Emperor, instead of retiring to “country villages...seashore and mountains”, one can find peace and ultimate self-knowledge through a detailed examination of the soul.
AMORC is unique in that it does not require personal interaction in order to propagate its mind control techniques; instead, followers are subtly manipulated to engage in these brainwashing practices on their own. Isolation from outsiders has long been a favored tool of cult leaders, by starving followers from their support systems, cults can dissuade students from engaging in an independent evaluation of the lessons being taught. Without outside influence, an individual increasingly relies upon the social network set up by AMORC. Eventually, a person will be willing to compromise even their most deeply held principles to ensure their status and stature within this group; not doing so would mean expulsion and at this point that just isn’t an option.

ERODING GOD’S HONOUR?

MEMORISE:
A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?
Malachi 1:6

READ:
Malachi 1:6-8
6 A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?
7 Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the Lord is contemptible.
8 And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the Lord of hosts.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 113-118 & Zephaniah 1

MESSAGE:
For your prayer to be a sweet savour before the Almighty God, you must be prepared not only to praise Him but also to honour His Name. You cannot truly claim to belong to God without reverencing or honouring His Name. This is why the Lord posed this crucial question to us in Malachi 1:6:
“A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?”
If you look at the two types of relationships referenced in the above Scripture passage, you will agree with me that the lower member of each relationship owes a type of honour to the higher member. A son owes his father a higher degree of honour and respect borne out of love. Also, a servant owes his master some degree of fear, honour and regard, as the master is the source of the servant’s livelihood. As a result of these, a father can demand honour of his son, just as a master can demand honour of his servant. However, when it comes to our relationship with God, many people who claim to be God’s children, prefer to relate with God without giving Him the honour due to His Name. Unsurprisingly, this is unacceptable to the One to whom all honour is due.
Today, the Lord is asking, “where is my honour?” In other words, there are many honour-thieves in the Christian fold. Are you an honour-thief? If you call on God’s Name without giving it the high regards it deserves, you are an honour-thief. If you fail the materials test, by offering to God a defective gift or a gift that does not befit His status as the King of kings, nor reflect the levels of blessings on your life, you are an honour-thief. If you treat His assignments or handle His work with anything less than the honour due to Him, you are an honour-thief. If your lifestyle makes people look down on your God, you are an honour-thief. If you offer torn currency notes to God, when you know you cannot even use such to pay for things, you are an honour-thief. Do you honour God in all you do?

ACTION POINT:
Carefully come up with 5-10 ways of honouring God. Go ahead and implement them.

HYMN 9:
1. On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
The emblem of suff’ring and shame;
And I love that old cross where the Dearest and Best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.

Refrain:
So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it someday for a crown.

2. Oh, that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction for me;
For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary.
Refrain:

3. In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see,
For ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
To pardon and sanctify me.
Refrain:

4. To the old rugged cross I will ever be true;
Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then He’ll call me someday to my home far away,
Where His glory forever I’ll share.
Refrain

Topic: Free Indeed
Text: John 8:32; 36
What are the implications of bondage?
• Struggle for survival. What are the implications of Deliverance?
• Restoration becomes easy and rapid - Exodus 12:35-36.
• Promotion becomes accelerated - Mark 5:18-20.
• Coast becomes enlarged (limited location to unlimited location). When God gives total deliverance: (Judges 15:1-15)
• Enemies-within become disappointed.
• Enemies-without will either die or scatter.
• Any enemy that is not dead will become your servant - Acts 16:25-34. Why You are going to be free indeed?
1. When God made you, He made you in His image and likeness to have dominion (not to be bound or not to be a slave) (Genesis 1:26-28) that is why man has a seed of freedom in him - Mark 5:2-4 Redeemed by God (He bought you back) - I Peter 1:18-19
2. Because you know the truth, the truth is Jesus - John 14:6, Deuteronomy 28:1-7 and the truth is the word of God - John 17:17, Psalm 118:17
There are 2 types of Captives: 1. Lawful Captives 2. Unlawful Captives Deliverance is available for both the lawful captives and the unlawful captives - Isaiah 49:24-26.
3. Our Father is a stronger man - Luke 11:21-22, Psalm 91:1, I John 4:4.
4. Jesus can change curses to blessings - Galatians 3:13-14, Numbers 23:7-25 One of the biggest form of bondage is to be under a curse; it flows downward like a river (e.g. from father to children).
5. Our Father can cancel evil covenant (a covenant is an agreement between you and the forces) - Isaiah 28:15-18, II Corinthians 5:17
6. You are willing to be free completely Acts12:5-11, Acts16:25-28.
7. When God arises, His enemies and your enemies will scatter - Psalm 68:1-3. Some enemies will melt if they don't scatter - Hebrews 12:29. How do I get God to arise? If you will worship Him in spirit and in truth - John 4:23-24
Prayer points: - Father, in the mighty Name of Jesus, I command every evil force hindering my destiny to bow to Jesus!
- In the mighty Name of Jesus, I command you Satan to take your dirty hands off me, my family and loved ones.
- I decree tonight, every voice trying to distract my attention, be silenced permanently!

HOW CONCEALED ARE SECRETS?

MEMORISE:
Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are Unclad and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
Hebrews 4:13

READ:
Hebrews 4:11-14

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 119 & Zephaniah 2:1-12

MESSAGE:
The way a child of God relates with sin is indicative of the level of brokenness he or she has attained. An unbroken fellow tries to cover up sin. He or she tries to play smart with sin, particularly when its repercussions are not immediately apparent. In Proverb 28:13, the Holy Spirit has this message for such people:
“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.”
If you fall into sin and the most important thing to you at that moment is that no one should know what you have done, it is because you are not broken. In any case, to what extent can you truly hide sin? For how long can you cover up your evil deeds? Can you hide your sins from God? Hebrews 4:13 answers this:
“Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are Unclad and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.”
Thinking that you can hide away you sins from God is living in a fool’s paradise. This can be compared to the proverbial ostrich which buries its head in the sand to hide from predators, not realizing that its body is still visible to its enemy and vulnerable to attack.
Not only are your sins never hidden from God, they are equally not hidden from the saints in Heaven. Hebrews chapter 11 provides a list of saints that ran this race ahead of us and are now in Heaven. Hebrews 12:1 calls them a “cloud of witnesses”. These brethren know and can see all we are doing. Someone who was privileged to visit Heaven and return to earth said that there is a curtain in heaven that anyone there can pull and the fellow will be able to monitor the activities of anybody here on earth. Another brother who also had that same privilege spoke of how saints in Heaven gather together in a place like a stadium, where they watch earthly saints facing crucial trials of their faith. When a saint being watched compromises, they shout in disappointment, just like when your favorite football team concedes a goal. In contrast, when a person stands for his or her faith in Christ, they shout with excitement. Be aware that that you are being watched. If only you can imagine the number of eyes monitoring you, you would be conscious of the fact that nothing you do is hidden!

KEY POINT:
The next time you are tempted to sin in secret, just imagine multiple eyes peering at you from every corner of enclosure you are in.

HYMN 6:

Till all conflict past,
Finds me conqu’ror, and in His own image
Perfected at last.

In His pow’r and soul exulting wisdom
Let me peace pursue.

THEME: SONGS OF VICTORY
Ministering: Dr. Mensah Otabil
Topic: The Victorious Life
What is grace? Grace is Gods character, Gods good will to us, God being kind to us. Grace is something you receive that you don't merit, Grace is God extended help to us. The new testament start with grace, John 4:14-16. Where there is faith, there must be grace. Grace and faith work together. By grace you are saved through faith. Grace operate through faith. Grace gives you access to what God has. Grace provides and faith receives.
How do we get Grace
Even if you don't ask for grace, God will provide grace but you have to develop the faith.
Galatians 3:1-9
Grace and faith enables to receive the spirit, enable us to receive the miracle of God. God's grace can be frustrated or eliminated. God's mission of bringing grace is to fulfil the law.
Jesus in comparing the law and grace, grace has the highest standard. The law will only identify sin when it is committed but Grace identify sin when it is taught in the heart and does not lowered the standard of God.
Few things that hinder the grace of God
1. A proud spirit;
2. God's grace can be hindered in an atmosphere of insensitivity,
3. God's grace can be hindered in an atmosphere of bitterness
God's grace is always enough.

STOP THE PRETENCE!

MEMORISE:
Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
1Timothy 1:5

READ:
1Timothy 1:5-9

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 120-134 & Zephaniah 2:13-3:8

MESSAGE:
Salvation through Christ is such a great experience, but the devil in his characteristic manner has introduced counterfeits into people’s lives. The consequence of processing a counterfeit salvation experience is a life of pretense. To guard against this wile of the devil, the holy spirit in 1 timothy 1:5, admonishes us thus:
“Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:”
While God wants us to show love to all, he equally cares about the source of this love. The source of a thing goes a long way in determining its quality and value. You cannot bring something good out of an evil heart. If you do, that good thing is already tainted. For instance, even though you see lots of food in a dunghill, you will not go to eat from there. God is therefore saying that you should do away with pretense and hypocrisy, because they taint whatever good works you are doing. He is saying that if you will show Him love, make sacrifices for His sake, or give to his cause, such actions must come out of a pure heart, with a good conscience and done with sincerity; otherwise, the doer of these works may not get any reward.
Are you saved? Is your salvation genuine or false? 2 Corinthians 5:17 says if you are saved, old things are passed away. This means that if you were stealing before, after experiencing salvation, you will stop stealing. You cannot continue to stealing and still lay claim to salvation. While my father-in-the-lord was alive, if you claimed to be saved, he would ask you these questions: “what were you saved from? What were you doing before that you no longer do now?” today, people claim they are saved, and yet they still steal, lie or fornicate. What kind of salvation is that? In one of my missionary trips outside Nigeria, a man came to me and said, “Sir, I heard that you are a prophet of God and that your prophesies are deadly accurate.” “Is that so?” I replied and further added, ‘I am not a prophet but a pastor, but I do hear from God once in a while.” He then asked me to tell him his future. I asked him if he was born again and washed in the blood of Jesus Christ, and His response was “No”. So I said to him, “Your future will be terrible.” Alarmed, he said, “How do you know? You don’t even know my name, and you have not even prayed!” I told him there was no need for that because Isaiah 3:11 says “Woe to the wicked!” on the other hand, if you are saved, your tomorrow will be alright. Are you saved? Did you genuinely give your life to Jesus Christ on a particular day? If not, do it today!

KEY POINT:
The afterlife has no room for pretense. It’s all about reality and truth.

HYMN 6:
1. Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;

Let me fruitful grow.
Refrain:

4. Deeper, higher, every day in Jesus,
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conqu’ror, and in His own image
Perfected at last.
Refrain:

5. Deeper, deeper in the faith of Jesus,
Holy faith and true;
In His pow’r and soul exulting wisdom
Let me peace pursue.

2017 Holy Ghost Congress; Day 4

THEME: SONGS OF VICTORY

Ministering: Pastor E.A Adeboye

Topic: The Victorious Prayers

Father, whatever prayer I pray here today, before the sun rises, let it become a testimony.
When you are coming tomorrow, it will be a good idea if you can come with three white handkerchiefs. God is set to do something He has never done before.
Tonight, we will be talking about victorious prayers. When we were younger, there is a song we use to sing;
I wont let go 2ce, I have Jesus, I won't let go.
Its a song of determination.
Before you leave this place tonight, you will testify.
Text: 1 Kings 8:36-39
As we pray tonight, the fire of God will fall
The guarantee that God will answer our prayers is based or rooted in constancy. Heb 3:8. God does not change. If we meet His conditions , He will surely answer our prayers Mathew 7:7-8. If you ask, you will receive, anyone who seek, you will find anyone who knocks, the door will be open. In other words, if you don't ask, you wont get, if you don't seek, you wont find and if you don't knock, the door wont be opened onto you, James 4:4. When you ask amiss, He will not answer. Isaiah 55:6, Knock and the door shall be opened unto you, provided you know how to do the knocking and how to answer the fellow at the other end Psalm 24:7-10. When you meet the condition, you know how to ask so that you don't ask amiss, you know how to seek and you know how to knock, the door will be open unto you.
Romans 8:26-27, the
How do I seek, how do I know He is near, I don't have to look for God if I praise Him, worship Him, He Himself will find me John 4:23-24. Begin an attitude of worshipping Him first so that He can draw near you.
How do I knock correctly
The best way to knock at the door is to knock at the door Himself (Jesus)
10 reasons why I am sure God will answer your prayers tonight.
1. Come to Him as a child of God. Be sure that you know that you know that you are a child of God, Psalm 65:2, Isaiah 59:1-2. Come to Him washed in the blood of the lamb.
2. He does not lie, Numbers 23:19, Jeremiah 33:3
3. He has answered by fire before and because He does not change, He will answer by fire again, 1 Kings 18:33-39, Malachi 3:6, 2 Kings 9:1-12. If He has ever answered prayer before, He will answer again
4. There is no request coming from you that God will say, this is too hard. Jeremiah 32:27, Luke 1:37, Joshua 10:12-13. No matter how hard what you ask for, He will grant your request
5. There are no requests of yours that will be regarded as too many. Genesis 17:1, Ephesians 3:20. It doesn't matter how many things you ask God for, He has more than enough. Even if God does not have, He will create it. 2 Chronicles 1:6-12.
There is somebody here tonight, God is going to visit you and He will ask you, is that all. Amen
6. My request cannot be considered too late. You cannot go to God and here Him say, it is too late. John 11:20-44. You can't ask anything too late from the one who is Alfa & Omega.
There is somebody here tonight, even the miracle you have already lost, God is going to back date the miracle
7. It does not depend on you at all, it depend on God because He is good. Psalm 107:1, Psalm 121:1-2. He is able to help and He is willing to help, Isaiah 41:10-13. I want to guarantee you tonight, if you stop running to man, your testimony will be faster.
The one God will send to help you, the one God said should help and refuse to help you, will refuse to sleep tonight. Amen
8. He is not just good, He is merciful. Psalm 107:1, Ephesians 2:4. When God want to display His wealth, He display His mercy. Mark 10:46-52, Luke 17:12-19. Lord have mercy on me
9. If you refuse to let Him rest, He will grant your request. When He said ask, it didn't tell you the time it will elapse. Many of us have lost our miracle, because we don't persist, we relax. John 16:24, 1 Thess 5:17, Genesis 32:24-29. I have discovered the reason many of us pray shallow prayers is because the matter is not serious enough. You stop praying only because there is another way out, you have plan B but when you don't have another plan, you will pray your way out. It might be just one shout that your help will come. You must hold onto God never to let Him go for Him to answer you. Don't let anybody tell you that your own is too difficult for God.
10. God knows that if He does something new in your life, at least you will sing a new song. Exodus 14:21-28, Exodus 15:1-11.
Am standing on the promises of my father in heaven, all the problems you are facing or seeing, by the time the sun rises tomorrow, you will see them no more and you will sing a song of victory. Amen
If you are going to come to God at all, you must come to Him as a true child of God. You must surrender your life to Jesus for your prayers to be answers tonight. Sin is the only thing that can state d between you and the answers to your prayers.

Prayers
1. Praise God till you feel him drawing near to you for what He has done in the past.
2. Father, please just have mercy on me
3. Father, please help me, I have no other helper but you. Please help me
4. Tell him exactly what you want Him to do for you

Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by Julivas(m): 12:29pm On Dec 09, 2017
DAY 5 OF HOLY GHOST CONGRESS 2017
Theme: Songs of Victory
Topic: Songs of Victory
Text: Exodus 15:1-3;11

Two important words in the phrase: Songs of Victory; Song and Victory

Song
The original plan of God for man is to sing praises of Him and all things are created to give Him pleasure - Revelation 4:11, Isaiah 55:12
According to Genesis 1:31, God praised Himself when there was no one to do so, He said everything He created is very good.

Victory
Victory means to win, to overcome in a contest or war but there is no question of drawn game in war (you either win or lose, victor or victim).
As a child of God, you have a determined enemy; he wants to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10) . He is well organised and has an army that is also well organised - Ephesians 6:22
You have a determined ally as a child of God who is far superior to satan; He is the Lord of host even satan has to take permission from Him before he can operate - Psalm 24:7-10

Techniques of the Adversary (the Devil)
1. When the devil wants to attack, the time he loves to attack is when you are celebrating because you are relax - I Samuel 18:5-11, Joshua 7, II Kings 2:9-24
Whenever you have a celebration, keep on praying.
2. When the devil wants to attack directly, he does it massively - Exodus 14:5-28, II Chronicles 20:1-25, Isaiah 59:19
3. At times, the devil does not attack directly but in a subtle way (in manner that is difficult for you to fight) - Ephesians 6:11
In the case of David, the devil couldn't fight him directly but he had to use wisdom - I Samuel 24:1-6; 25:1-11
4. When the devil wants to fight at times, he uses combination of forces (internal enemies plus external enemies) - Matthew 10:36, Judges 15:1-19
The anointing of the Almighty can disappoint/frustrate the internal enemies and destroy/kill the external enemies.
5. One of the most sinister methods of the devil is, when the first four methods above fails, he tries to turn God against you, making your ally to become your enemy by encouraging you to sin - Numbers 23:1-23; 25:1-9

The Final Victory
The last enemy to be destroyed is death; your victory is not complete until you make it to Heaven - II Timothy 4:7-8,
There is assembly of the overcomers before the throne of God singing the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb - Revelation 15:2-3
Our victory is absolutely total when we make it to Heaven.
The most important victory of all is to finish well.
When you finish well in Christ, you will become Undefeated Champion.

Prophecy: The Almighty God says your greatness is about to begin.

Prayer Points:
1. Praise the Almighty God that you are still alive today (praise Him for life).
2. Father, all the enemies within, please deal with them Yourself and in Your own way.
3. Father, as for the external enemies, those who will not repent among them, arise and scatter them!
4. Father, make Your wall of fire round me and all mine to remain solid.
5. Father, please don't let me be my own enemy.
6. Father, let me enjoy peace from now on even in the presence of my enemies.
7. Father, please let me finish well.
8. Discuss personal battles to the Most High God.

Sir I think you can relate to that .
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by Timmytimmy: 6:12pm On Dec 09, 2017
Hello everyone. I am trying to gather a larger audience for a topic i just created. I have not been here in a while so i do not really know who to mention. It's about the issue of speaking and praying in tongues.

I found a resource online that i think many will benefit from. Here's the link to the thread i just created.

I understand that this is a deeply controversial issue and a lot varying interpretations of the scripture addressing this issues exist.
This is basically an answer from gotquestions.com with a link attached at the end. It resonates deeply with everything i have studied in scripture and i felt a moral obligation to share. Let us all air our views respectfully. Thanks. I pray God also opens our hearts and minds.

Question: "What is praying in tongues? Is praying in tongues a prayer language between a believer and God?"

Answer: As a background, please read our article on the gift of speaking in tongues: https://www.gotquestions.org/gift-of-tongues.html

There are four primary Scripture passages that are cited as evidence for praying in tongues:
Romans 8:26
1 Corinthians 14:4-17
Ephesians 6:18

Jude verse 20. Ephesians 6:18 and Jude 20 mention “praying in the Spirit.” However, tongues as a prayer language is not a likely interpretation of “praying in the Spirit.”

Romans 8:26 teaches us, “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.” Two key points make it highly unlikely that Romans 8:26 is referring to tongues as a prayer language.

INVITATION TO GREATER WORKS.

MEMORISE:
And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. Luke 10:17

READ:
Matthew 14:23-29

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 135-141 & Zephaniah 3:9-20

MESSAGE:
On one of their journeys by sea, the disciples saw Jesus walking towards them on water. Astonished to see this wonder, Peter asked the lord Jesus Christ if he could join Him, and the Lord invited him to come. Peter’s fellow disciples watched in amazement as he walked towards Jesus on the water. If only they too had responded to the Lord’s invitation, they would have partaken of this awesome experience, but they were not courageous enough to step out. Nevertheless, that invitation to do the impossible was not limited to them. It is still open to you and me today. In John 14:12, Jesus said,
“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.”
Beloved, the call to do the works of Jesus and even perform greater works than He did is a call to do the impossible. To be able to do this, you must be prepared to believe in Jesus Christ with all your heart, leaving no space for doubt. Do you believe in Him? Why then do you still leave room for doubt? Don’t you know that the Lord never fails?
Furthermore, Jesus invites us to follow Him. John 8:12 says,
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
As the Light, if you follow Jesus, you will not walk in darkness, and neither will you stumble. Also, if you follow Him, He will make something great out of your life. He will make you what you never dreamt you could become. Consider a person like Peter: he would have died an unknown fisherman if he had not accepted Christ’s invitation to follow Him (Matthew 4:18-19). Have you accepted that invitation to follow Jesus? Today, some people give various excuses for not following Him. One of such excuses is that they do not want to be disturbed or distracted from their life’s goal or ambition, failing to realize that if only they accepted the Lord’s invitation, they would have had a greater future and they would have enjoyed His backing in all their life’s endeavors. Have you heeded his invitation?

KEY POINT:
The call to follow Jesus is a call to true discipleship. Are you His disciple?

HYMN 14:
1.Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise.

2.Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee.

3.Take my voice and let me sing,
Always, only for my King.
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.

4. Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.

5. Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

6.Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

A SACRIFICE OF LOVE.

MEMORISE:
I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.
Psalm 116:17

READ:
Psalm 116:17-19
17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.
18 I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people.
19 In the courts of the Lord's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the Lord.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 142-150 & Haggai 1:1-11

MESSAGE:
If you have been washed in the precious blood of the lamb, thanking God for the salvation of your soul is something you need to do daily for the rest of your life. Some people throw parties to celebrate milestones and achievements in different areas of life, but Jesus said that what should give us the greatest joy is the fact that we are saved and have our names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life (Luke 10:20). That your name is in the Lamb’s Book of Life is a great testimony that you should regularly thank God for whenever you pray.
However, giving thanks to god is not always a very easy thing to do, particularly if you have been going through a spate of negative and very sad events or experiences. In such situations, thanking God requires sacrifice. Our God loves sacrifices- particularly a sacrifice of thanksgiving. No wonder the Psalmist says thus in Psalm 116:17
“I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.”
When you offer thanksgiving to god at a time when every situation is your life is saying that He doesn’t deserve it or that He has forsaken you, it is sacrificial.
Similarly, your thanksgiving is sacrificial when you thank God even when he has not granted your request. This is an expression of faith. Sacrificial thanksgiving glorifies God and proves to Him that your faith is Christ has spiritual substance. Do you know that most people remember to thank God only when they believe He has “earned it’? Such people live by a personal philosophy which says “whenever God does something for me, only then will I give Him thanks in return.” Such an attitude is simply calculative and myopic. There are so many things God does for us every day which we take for granted as normal everyday occurrence, but the truth is, nothing is ever really “normal”, and every day comes with its challenges. Those who give God a sacrifice of thanksgiving do so because they choose to. They choose to see things from God’s perspective, which makes them see reasons why they ought to be grateful to God, even when other people cannot see any reason why.

ACTION POINT:
Apply the lessons learnt in today’s study to offer God a sacrificial thanksgiving today.

HYMN 8:
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with Thee
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be

Refrain :
Great is Thy faithfulness
Great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love
Refrain:

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.

Saturday
2017 Holy Ghost Congress; Day 6
THEME: SONGS OF VICTORY
Ministering: Pastor E.A Adeboye
Topic: Anointing for Victory
Father, I know you reserve the best till the last, Lord give me your very best tonight.
Text: 1 Samuel 17:34-37
Every lion in your life will die tonight, every bear will die tonight and every Goliath will lose his head. Amen
In the above bible verse, David gave 3 Categories of external enemies.
1. The Lion : represents someone who is superior to you in position and authority and want to use that superiority to choke life off you. Exodus 1:8-22. There are some people in authority who will want to choke life off you but thank God there is an anointing who will destroy them.
2. The Bear: The bear hug so as to crush someone to death . The bear represent to who pretend to love you but plan to kill you, Mathew 7:15, Judges 16:4-21. There is an anointing that can destroy the bear. Anyone pretending to be your friend but planning to kill you, the anointing of the Lord will destroy them tonight. There might be somebody very close to you either in your family, among your friends, in your church or office, whose plan is your destruction , there is an anointing coming on you tonight that will destroy them. Amen
3. Goliath: represent enemies who will say to you point blank that we know you are meant for the top but will see to it that you don't get there,1 Samuel 17:4-9. Everyone who says you will not reach your goal, in the name that is above every other name, they will lose their head. Amen. There is an anointing and that anointing comes from the Almighty God, it goes like fire. Incidentally, if you learn to sing praises to God, the devil cannot stand. If you ever come across any problem in the future after this congress, don't murmur, don't complain, Just sing to God. ( I know my redeemer liveth 3ce, He liveth for ever more)
If you only you will sing under the anointing tonight, the enemy will flee in Jesus name.
When I eat an anointed meal, it gives me strength for the journey ahead. 1 King 19:1-8.
After every major victory, the enemy can be trickish but let me assure you, nothing will take your victory. Amen
The holy communion is an extremely powerful meal, you don't eat it with unworthily (sin). If you eat it with sin, it can destroy you.
Prayer point
1. Father, give me the power to clear every obstruction to my destiny tonight.
2. Father, from tonight, every where I go, let your anointing speak for me.

STANDING FAULTLESS BEFORE CHRIST

MEMORISE:
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Luke 21:36

READ:
Matthew 26:36-41

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Revelation 1-2 & Haggai 1:12-2:9

MESSAGE:
The Lord in Hosea 4:6 reveals that ignorance is one of the greatest factors that lead to the undoing of believers. What you attain in life may not go beyond what you know. What you know adds to you, but what you fail to know takes away from you. The Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 26:41 says,
“Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
From these words of the Master, we understand that there is a link between what you know and how effectively you pray. We also understand that there is a link between what you know and how you overcome temptations. The less you know about God, His ways and His words, the less inner strength you will have to overcome temptations. If you want to live a Christian life that manifests the victory that Christ has given us over Satan, sin, self and the pleasures of the world, you must be well versed in the Scriptures. You must study to show yourself approved before God (2 Timothy 2:15). To what extent do you know God?
“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” Luke 21:36
This scripture tells us that although prayer is very important, it is however not enough. If you can pray very well but lack knowledge, many things can still go wrong. From the words of the Master in the scriptures, prayer must be effectively combined with knowledge to be able to escape the dangers of the last days. Do you know the signs of the times? Do you take time to monitor local, national and international events and reconcile these events with what God has said concerning them in His word? If you have knowledge and are prayerful, certain things that would take the world by surprise cannot catch you off guard. In fact, you will be the one alerting others to the implications of the events happening around you. In addition, it takes a combination of knowledge and prayers to be able to stand as a worthy vessel before the judgment seat of Christ. When you know what the Lord wants of you, how He wants you to do the work he has assigned to you, and the time He has appointed for you to do the work, it will be easy to do it and to stand faultless before His throne at last.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please do all You need to do in me to present me faultless before Your throne.

HYMN 12:
1. How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believer's ear!
It soothes his sorrow, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.

2. It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
'Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary rest.

3. Jesus, Shepherd, Guardian, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest, and King;
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
Accept the praise I bring.

4. How weak the effort of my heart,
How cold our warmest thought;
But when we see Thee as Thou art,
I'll praise Thee as we ought.

5. Till then I would Your love proclaim
With every fleeting breath;
And may the music of Your Name
Refresh my soul in death
