A CHRISTMAS CRY!!!

The wisdom of this world is so inefficient to even escape the wicknedness of this world.

Ask the wise men who came to locate baby JESUS.
Despite their knowledge, they would have ignorantly fed King Herod with the details of the location of Mary and her child if not for the Voice of the Spirit of GOD that warned them.

Many at times, based on our past achievements… We tend to think that we can overcome some problems and take some decisions from our wealth of knowledge.

We fail to realise that the devil has a variety of systems he works with deceive the children of GOD.

It’s not just the technique that has made you unique, it’s not just the job that has made you rich and complete, it’s not your fine face that will bring you the right partner, Everything revolves around the touch of GOD in your life.

Without it, you can cook coolers of rice that would lack salt and season.

Don’t neglect the supremacy of JESUS CHRIST in your life.
Don’t call him LORD, if you can’t obey him to the last.

JESUS CHRIST is the only reason for the season.

If you’re eaten all sorts without HIM taking HIS appropriate place in your life.
You are just celebrating the religion that wouldn’t get you to heaven.

Merry Christmas once again😁

You are not what you say you are!!!

You are not what you say you are, you are what your character says you are

Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Our character is a build-up of our ideologies acted out on a default state.

When we study the WORD, the mind of GOD is incoporated into us, and our mind is renewed… Hence, that’s when we stop thinking like Un-believers…

That’s when we can manifest the raw wisdom of GOD..

So, it’s not about we training ourselves to talk about the good things we do, so we don’t feel like mediocres…

But it’s more about what our Life says about who we are…

Let’s put more conscious efforts in developing our minds such that we ain’t living by the same doctrines we were living by when we came into Christianity….

#renewyourmind

HE IS TRYING TO DESTROY THEM! WHAT WOULD YOU DO??

There is so much happening in these times…

GOD is raising people… While the devil is making his own efforts…

You have to walk circumspectly to be who GOD designed you to be….
Why?

The devil is out to frustrate the Abrahams so they would lose their faith

He’s out to scare the Moses, so they won’t deliver the people of GOD

He’s out to eliminate the Nehemiahs’ so they won’t rebuild the walls of godliness

He’s out to scare the Esthers so they would love their lives rather than death

He’s out to seduce the Samson’s so they won’t establish peace in their world

He’s out to demoralise the Jobs, so they would curse their GOD

He’s out to sift our Peters’, so they won’t feed the sheep

He’s out to curse our Johns’ so they won’t stay with GOD

He’s out to drown our Sauls’ so they wouldn’t become their Pauls’

He’s out to scare our Elijahs’ so they wouldn’t disgrace the priests of Baal

He’s out to waste our Solomons’ so they won’t release the wisdom of our GOD

He’s out to deceive you, so you won’t fulfil GOD’S PURPOSE…

Would you allow HIM…. Or you’ll stand with JESUS CHRIST regardless…

I understand, the walk of faith requires much tribulation…
But be of GOOD CHEER, JESUS CHRIST overcomed the WORLD(John 16:33)

Stand up for Christ in your sphere of influence
And the devil would flee because of your WORD.

Stay Blessed.

PASTOR OYEDEPO’S AIRCRAFT ALMOST CRASHED…. THANKS BE TO GOD

THE presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide, popularly known as Winners Chapel, Dr. David Oyedepo, yesterday relived how he and others travelling with him escaped what he described as a “potential plane crash.”

The bishop shared the testimony at the ‘Breakthrough Service’ held at the church’s world headquarters in Ota, Ogun State and broadcast to all the zonal centres of the church in Ota and Lagos. Bishop Oyedepo told the congregation that the plane had a mid-air crisis, but added that “God took control and landed the plane.” Before he shared his testimony after the normal preaching, he was said to have read IICorinthians 1:8- 12 and asked the congregation to read those verses of the Bible when they got home. He then led the congregation to read Psalms 52, Isaiah 52: 1-3 and Psalms 94: 1-3, which talks about God’s vengeance against the wicked.

The bishop then told the congregation how God miraculously delivered him and the others when the plane ran into turbulence. He said: “There was a mid-air crisis, there was serious turbulence, but there was no apprehension. Jesus took control. He landed the plane safely. And we were just celebrating the faithfulness of God.” Although he did not disclose where he was going or coming from when the incident happened, a source told us that he might have been returning from London.

He, however, said he would give the details of the incident tomorrow at a thanksgiving service. After sharing the testimony, the bishop, who was said to be his vivacious self throughout, led the congregation to sing a thanksgiving chorus: Almighty God, all powerful God; you are worthy to receive all our praise, you reign forever more.

The Deputy President of the church, Bishop David Abioye, and other top pastors joined Bishop Oyedepo on the altar to dance in a wild praise and singing session.

WHY DID JESUS HAVE TO DIE? WHY??

lkl

WHY DID JESUS HAVE TO DIE?

WHY WAS IT JESUS, NOT JUST A POWERFUL ANGEL?

WHY IS IT ONLY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST THAT CAN CLEANSE SINS?

Really Why…….

Many Christians have been confronted by un-believers, despite their knowledge of the WORD, they find it hard to prove why DEATH was what JESUS CHRIST had to accept….. and nothing else.

I will list some reasons why JESUS CHRIST had to die…

I trust the HOLY SPIRIT to grant you an understanding that will establish the TRUTH…

 WHY IT WAS JESUS CHRIST THAT HAD TO DIE

John 3:16– For GOD so LOVED the world, that HE GAVE HIS only begotten SON, that the world through HIM might be saved

This verse establishes that, there was a time when the world was lost, that happened in the fall at Eden…

Now, Two things happened, GOD lost HIS Relationship with us, and we also lost ours with HIM. We were far more disadvantaged, because GOD still retained all HIS Glory after our fall.

But, something changed the whole story, HIS AGAPE LOVE.

To regain that lost relationship… One of the two parties had to Lose something to gain that relationship back….

In our value system, there was nothing man could so rather than keep DIEING to fulfil the greediness of sin through DEATH…

Therefore, something precious was needed to regain it back, GOD therefore couldn’t release a mere angel, no matter how powerful they were, because we are even more precious than angels… HE had to release HIS ONLY SON….

 

WHY HIS DEATH WAS THE ONLY RESORT THAT COULD RESTORE OUR RELATIONSHIP

Genesis 3:3- But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, GOD hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, LEST YE DIE….

This tells us that DEATH was our punishment for that sin, and GOD’S WORD wouldn’t go without fulfilling it’s purpose…

So, JESUS CHRIST came to the world to become US, so if GOD’S WORD had established death, HE had no choice than to do A SUBSTITUTION that will last forever.

See, HIS AGAPE LOVE was never available to the angels that were doomed (2Peter 2:4)

agapelove-e1427894274617

Death was passed to all men, by sin, so… For life to be passed the same, one man had to die, when Adam sinned, we fell, so one who had eternal life had to die, the limit of his years, is the duration of our redemption… Hence, the eternal life in HIM, established our eternal reconciliation to HIM (Romans 5:12)

WE WERE RECONCILED BY HIS DEATH, BUT WE WERE SAVED BY HIS LIFE.

 

Also….

John 15:13- Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends…

Now, GOD’S LOVE is PERFECT, so whatever way it manifests has to be the highest level it can ever manifest… SO, GOD couldn’t ever settle for anything less, HE WANTED SOMETHING THAT WILL LAST FOREVER…

 

WHY IS IT ONLY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST THAT CAN CLEANSE SINS?

     We human beings, were doomed for eternal death….

     We were already under condemnation to death….

 

  1 Corinthians 15:55- O death, where is thy sting?  O grave, where is thy victory?

56- The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law

57- But thanks be to GOD, which giveth us the victory through our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

Death’s access to us was sin, and the law strengthened it, the law couldn’t stop us from sinning, only the spirit of LIFE that Ministers to us through THE WORD, no wonder it was called THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE in Romans 8:2

       The product of the exchange was the access point to our redemption, that is why, our sins that held us under death couldn’t be washed by the name of JESUS CHRIST, because the name only existed after he resurrected, it couldn’t be washed by the supremacy of GOD, but only by HIS BLOOD that was shed at the site of that exchange..

 

 

FINALLY…

 

       WHY DID WE NOT KNOW WHY HE HAD TO DIE before we killed him…till this TIME

HEROD didn’t even find JESUS guilty on trial, but the devil had been looking for a way to get back at GOD, if the devil knew HE was sealing our redemption….He wouldn’t have manipulated the Religious leaders to nail HIM to death…..

1 Corinthians 2:8- Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the LORD OF GLORY.

   GOD made the reason of HIS DEATH, a mystery so that we couldn’t understand it, not even principalities

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the……..

    vs 10- But GOD hath revealed them unto us by (HIS SPIRIT)

   That was how the mystery of HIS DEATH WAS UN-RAVELLED….

No wonder the HOLY SPIRIT couldn’t come into us, till he DIED

 

Romans 5:10- For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to GOD by the death of HIS SON, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by HIS LIFE….

 

WE WERE RECONCILED BY HIS DEATH, BUT WE WERE SAVED BY HIS LIFE…

GLORY TO GOD!!

In-Complete Armours

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

*An Incomplete Armour*
It’s only when you put on the WHOLE armour of GOD, that you would be able to STAND the WHILES of the devil.

In these TRUTH, hides the mystery of the downfall of many Believers.

We have Innocent Christians who would stand for the TRUTH no matter what, but they are faulty in using the shield of faith, hence many suffer and some die un-necessarily..

We also have some people who are so skillful with the Sword of the Spirit In attacks and yet they lack the shield of faith ..
These people know how to wage war with demons in territories and conquer at times, but a case of unexpected attack throws them out, and leaves many wounded.

We can continue listing Inefficiencies of Believers who wear u
In-complete armours into the camp of the enemy.

Brethren, if we are going to be the overcomers Christ calls us, we need not have only the COMPLETE ARMOUR, but we should be skillful,
How? Spending time with the owner and Fighter of all battles, Balancing every part of our armour.

*Do you want to be that skillful fighter?*
*Spend time in true study and practice of the WORD?*

FAITH THAT WORKETH BY LOVE

img_4620

 

Have you ever wondered why we have faith and we try to manifest it, but it just doesn’t work?

Could be very frustrating… right?

I want to show us a mystery that will change the course of our Life….

Just open your heart to this TRUTH!

 

Galatians 5:1 Stand Fast therefore in the Liberty wherewith CHRIST hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage……..

……vs 5 For we through the SPIRIT wait for the hope of Righteousness by faith..

……vs 6 For in JESUS CHRIST neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor un-circumcision; but FAITH which WORKETH BY LOVE

NOW LOOK AT THIS…

The Bible says the only way our Faith will work is BY LOVE……

Illustration: I want to travel by sea, using a boat

SEA- TRANSPORT MEDIUM

BOAT- CARRIER

Our FAITH- BOAT (without faith it is impossible……Hebrews 11:6)

BY SEA- BY LOVE

This means the only way our faith will work is BY LOVE…

So, if you are going to make your FAITH EFFECTIVE, ADD MORE LOVE… not power, not more praying on mountains… BUT MORE LOVE

LOVE FUELS YOUR FAITH

GOD IS LOVE, THE SPIRIT OF LOVE, JESUS CHRIST THE WORD, FEED ON THE WORD, INCREASE YOUR LOVE FOR GOD….FEEDS YOUR FAITH…

That’s only what availeth, RELIGION won’t help you… your pastor can’t do it…you have to ask for grace to LOVE

Vs 9- A LITTLE LEAVEN LEAVENETH THE WHOLE LUMP

Keep adding LOVE, it will change all… stop feeding your faith with fake food… it won’t avail a thing…

Churches are increasing, congregations are increasing, and the body of Christ is decreasing if not sinking….

 

Vs 16 This I say then, WALK IN THE SPIRIT, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh

Vs 25 If we LIVE IN THE SPIRIT, let us also WALK IN THE SPIRIT…

The only way to overcome the lust of the flesh is to WALK IN THE SPIRIT.. WALKING IN LOVE…

That was what the Bible meant…

Many BELIEVERS live in the SPIRIT but do not WALK IN THE SPIRIT…

Why?

When we get born again… We are born into the SPIRIT

But if we don’t practice the ways of the SPIRIT….LOVE we ain’t walking in the SPIRIT

 

We are of no use to GOD when we live there and do not walk there..

It’s like travelling abroad, when you get there, you live there… if you don’t get out to work…though you are still there.. you ain’t of use to them …

So, BEGIN TO WALK IN LOVE LIKE NEVER BEFORE… ONLY THEN, CAN YOUR FAITH AVAIL!

You can’t because of LOVE be saved, and then after that start to feed yourself with another substance….it’s impossible

Dollars got you into AMERICA, Naira or Euro or Pound won’t help you there…

 

Stay Blessed…

When you Listen to Sermons and Read books only !!!

When the HOLY SPIRIT, reveals something to a man, and the man receives Understanding to practice it. He is much effective in passing down the revelation to another person through utterance given by the same Spirit of GOD.

It is so much of a good thing, to read Spiritual books and listen to sermons by men of GOD. I personally have gained from it a lot, because you are learning faster…climbing on the shoulders of the experience of a man of GOD. But, there’s a plague that is ravaging believers like never before.

As good as it is, for GOD to create opportunities for believers to live excellent lives, the enemy always tries his best to create counterfeits of those opportunities. That’s where the problem is. We now have believers who depends so much on messages and Books to understand the SCRIPTURES, and less on the HOLY SPIRIT.

These set of believers could listen to sermons throughout a week, and barely read the WORD OF GOD as they are meant to. These false feeling of a greater level roses up in them, making them think they are moving into higher grounds. Do you know what happens in this situation…. When a pastor or whoever, explains the WORD OF GOD to you, and you listen sufficiently to it. It’s like ice-block steps you are climbing, . If you do not sit down to study the WORD OF GOD yourself and receive perfect Understanding of it. You will climb to a certain level, and just 1 storm of life will hit you, Bringing you Back to Level 1.

You are actually meant to solidify and establish that WORD that was deposited I. Your heart. That “going back to the WORD” is what makes the difference. The ability to sit down on your own, and depend on the Spirit of TRUTH for Understanding facilitates Responsibility in the Spirit. #Balance your life in Study and Practice of the WORD OF GOD.

Psalms 11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

Good morning…

Add more WORD OF GOD to your form

Psalms 119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

The Bible tells us in Hebrews 11:3 that the world was framed by the WORD OF GOD.

You were framed by the WORD OF GOD.

Just as a Potter adds clay to a previously moulded object, so as to form a new one.

We just need to add more of the WORD OF GOD to our lives, and we get our lives transformed.

Glory to GOD!!!

Give yourself to the rich company of the Scriptures. It’s priceless….

Good morning

Were you trying to surprise GOD?

Have you ever thought you could shock GOD with something new HE hasn’t seen before?

Some of us think we have situations that GOD hasn’t seen before….or even handled before….

Solomon said in Ecclesiastes…(Ecclesiastes 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.)

Beloved, there’s nothing you’re involved in that GOD can’t handle.

There’s no sin you’ve committed that HIS BLOOD can’t take care of. The Bible makes us understand that JESUS CHRIST took care of our sins past, present and future…..such that there’s no predicament we can be facing now that has not been taken care of.

You see how, amazing HIS GRACE is…

Beloved, there’s nothing new to GOD, don’t be ashamed to come before HIS THRONE OF MERCY today.. and HE will solve that problem you’re in.

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Stay Blessed
