The Mighty Hand of God

on Monday, 10 April 2017. Posted in Messages, 2017 Messages

Bible Passage(s): Joshua 4: 19-24

Memory Verse:    “That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the Lord, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the Lord your God for ever." Joshua 4: 24

The reference Bible passage for the Message of Grace for this month is from the concluding part of the story of how the children of Israel were able to cross over River Jordan on the way to their promised land. The story, which started in Chapter 3, is a gripping story of how God intervenes in the affairs of the lives of His people.

Bible Passage(s): Deuteronomy 8: 11-18

Memory Verse: “You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth that He may confirm his covenant that He swore to your fathers, as it is this day." Deuteronomy 8: 18

Last month, we spoke about Abundance and presented preconditions for us to come into and experience it. We did say that ‘’Abundance is when we have all things in surplus and plenty. It is not just about money or the material things of life, but an all-encompassing thing that fills our lives with superlative provisions of God in all its ramifications.’’ We went on to lay out prescriptions for us to experience and remain in the abundance that the Lord our God has promised to bring into our lives this year.

This month, we want to go a little further by reminding ourselves that our abundance does not consist of our works of piety or that we actually deserve it, but that it is the grace of God.

Bible Passage(s): Deuteronomy 28: 1 - 14

Memory Verse: “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God." Deuteronomy 28: 1 - 2

Abundance is when we have all things in surplus and plenty. It is not just about money or the material things of life, but an all-encompassing thing that fills our lives with superlative provisions of God in all its ramifications.

Good Tidings (News)

Bible Passage(s): 2 Kings 7: 1 - 20

Memory Verse: "Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day is a day of good tidings and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king’s household." 2 Kings 7:9

The year 2017 is our year of Good News! It is a year in which we will go beyond our borders to obtain and gain access to our abundance and breakthrough. For many years, you have been tied down, like a goat to a stake, not able to go beyond the length of the rope with which you were tied down. This year you will receive good news and you will break free and enter into your abundance!

The people of Samaria shut themselves inside the walls of their city.

Praise My Soul the King of Heaven

Usually when the year comes to an end, we look back over the year to assess how the year has been; how we fared during the year and what the Lord has done for us. For me the Lord has done great things and all I have to do is to say thank you Lord.

My Message of Grace for this month is fully captured in the following song by Lyte, Henry Francis, 1793-1847.

Reformation!

Bible Passage: Jeremiah 18: 1 - 9

Memory Verse; ‘Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, O house of Israel, cannot do with you as this potter? saith the Lord, Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.’ Jeremiah 18: 5 - 6

This month, the Lord wants to bring us into a new life and a new beginning. You may wonder what this means when you consider that the year 2016 is almost at an end. A new beginning? Yes a month of reformation!

The Lord says as the clay is in the potter’s (God’s) hands, so are you in mine hand to do as it pleases me. If the clay (you) was marred in the hand of the potter, he makes (reforms) it again into another vessel, as deemed good to him (God).

Independence!

Bible Passage: Psalm 126

Memory Verse; "Restore our captivity, O Lord, As the stream in the South." Psalm 126:4

Independence connotes freedom. Freedom comes in different dimensions to different people and in different situations. For a person, freedom can mean being set free form bondage, slavery and debilitating situations such as sickness, being held down by satanic oppressors, ancestral and generational causes. For a nation, it can be freedom from colonial masters, from economic, political as well as social depression and bondage.

Oasis of Grace!

on Thursday, 06 October 2016. Posted in Messages, 2016 Messages

Memory Verse;    "And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."   Corinthians 12:9

We read in the book of Genesis, chapter 47, verses 1 to 13, how, when the children of Israel came into Egypt from the land of Canaan; where there was serve famine, God caused them to be placed in the land of Goshen in Egypt.

Goshen is a land reputed to be the best of the land in Egypt. It is an area, located in the Nile delta, which is well watered and ideally suited for the shepherding of cattle.

Godliness

Bible Passage: 1 Timothy 6:6-10

Memory Verse;    "Now godliness with contentment is great gain."  1 Timothy 6:6

This month, I want to continue with excerpts from my book, Godliness with Contentment, Great Gain! We commence with the second chapter, which addressed the word Godliness. I wish a most rewarding and blessed experience.

The Oxford Dictionary defines godliness as “a state of being godly or being sincerely religious.” This means that a religious or pious man is a godly person. In essence a person who does all things in a ‘religious’ manner and allows only the tenets or teachings of his religion to control and sway his life can be considered as a godly man.

Godliness, Contentment, Gain

Bible Passage: 1 Timothy 6:6-10

Memory Verse;    "Now godliness with contentment is great gain."  1 Timothy 6:6

This message is an extract from my book, ‘Godliness with Contentment, Great Gain’’. As we enter the last half of this year 2016, I feel this message is very apt for this season in our lives and in the world generally. Almost on a daily basis, we are inundated with the news, particularly in our country Nigeria, of billions of Naira being recovered or traced to some past political leaders. Apart from that, we see in man today great craze to acquire wealth.
