God’s Heirs

There are several privileges of surrendering yourself to the Lord Jesus Christ. When you belong to God, you are no longer a slave to sin or guilty before God. You can now receive all the blessings He freely gives to His children. We inherit the family privileges of the Almighty! 

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. Rom 8vs1 


And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you. Gal 3vs29 


Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir. Gal 4vs7 


All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Eph 1vs3 


Don’t let the devil cheat you. Tap into the fullness of the inheritance you have as a redeemed child of God. Stand on the promises of God firmly. Begin to reap the harvest God has promised you. 



If you are truly God’s, Then, YOU Become QUALIFIED TO sing these songs: 


‘We are heirs of the father, 

We are joint-heirs with the Son, 

We are children of the Kingdom 

We are family we are one!, 


And 


‘Abraham’s blessings are mine/2x 

I am blessed in the morning, afternoon and the evening; 

Because Abraham’s blessings are mine!’ 


Halleluyah!!!

Unity In The Kingdom

When God’s people decide to work and walk together in Jesus’ name, we will be unstoppable. 

When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle. 


His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church), [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him. (Ephesians 4vs12-13 AMP) 



Jesus knew their thoughts and replied, “Any kingdom divided by civil war is doomed. A town or family splintered by feuding will fall apart. (Matthew 12vs25 NLT) 


Union (or unity) gives strength!

Simply Give Your Best To The Lord

 

 

 

 

Just yesterday, someone was telling me about his father who always attends church services but has decided never to give any offering in church. He said he claimed that the offerings given by church members are used by the pastors to enrich their own lives while the members remain impoverished.
I tried to make the person see that that was a capitally wrong decision to make but I desired to give him a scriptural reference which I was not able to lay my hand on at that point.
Alas, this morning, I was led to start reading Leviticus and then I got to this verse quoted here. Eureka! 

The priests are to burn only a representative portion of the offering, but all of it will be fully appreciated by the Lord. The remainder belongs to the priests for their own use, but it is all counted as a holy burnt offering to the Lord. -Lev 2vs9(TLB) 

 

It is none of your business how the money you give to the Lord is used. Why should you bother yourself with irrelevant investigations?
The Living Bible makes it clear that God appreciates the WHOLE OFFERING. The priests were given the go-ahead to take care of themselves and their families from a portion of the offerings.
Besides, the Bible says not to muzzle the mouth of the ox while it works. Why then do you intend to tie up the mouth of these servants of God.
Leave them to answer directly to the Lord.
Remember what happened to the sons of Eli? They were dealt with for their unfaithfulness. 


 

I think what you should worry about should be if your offering deserves to be accepted by God.
Is your offering defaced?
Have you given it bountifully, cheerfuly and without grudge?
Have you brought your offering while you are harbouring unforgiveness in your heart?
These are the questions you should ask. 
God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Seek the Lord with all your heart. Give your best to Him and wait for the harvest time. God owes no man. He is ever faithful.

Stand Still……..

Moses told the people, Fear not; stand still (firm, confident, undismayed) and see the salvation of the Lord which He will work for you today. For the Egyptians you have seen today you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest. Ex 14v13-14 

Stand firm on the solid rock-Jesus. Once your feet are set on the rock, there is no basis to fear sinking(well, except you are not sure on what you are standing on). If you know how great your God is, nothing can shake you. 


Firstly, when you are standing still, you are not to do that idly. You must be considering the works of God. (Hear this, O Job; stand still and consider the wondrous works of God- Job 37v14). Remind yourself of the glorious things He had done in the past. Ruminate on His wondrous acts. Look around you, look at nature; read your Bible and meditate on the awesome miracles He wrought and remind yourself of the battles He has fought for you. 


There is this song I learnt when I was younger- “I know whom I believe, I worship the Lord; He’s the Alpha and Omega, He’s the beginning and the end.” God is able to do just what He says He will do. He has the power and authority. With Him, nothing is impossible. Always remind yourself that nothing is too hard for Him. If something you are trusting Him for has not come through, it is not because He cannot do it, it is simply because He is in control of the timing. He always knows best. Keep praising Him till He decides to raise you! 



Secondly, when you are standing still, there is no need to fight. The battle is not yours. It is time for you tou trust God completely. God does not need your help to make you conquer. Don’t try to rush God or make or follow shortcuts to the solution. Only God’s blessings add no form of sorrow. His works are always perfect. He does not want to share His glory with any man. Allow Him take full control. Don’t allow Him take the steering wheel while you are busy trying to manipulate the geer. Sit majestically at the back sit and relax. Simply follow Him. Let Him lead you at His own pace. 


The story of king Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles chapter 20 captures this message properly. What could look more stupid than going to battle with musical instruments when your enemies are bringing their guns, missiles,etc. Oh my God! God uses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. As a matter of fact, someone who God led to battle with no physical armour must have a more groundbreaking testimony than someone He equipped with the physical armour to face terrible enemies with sophisticated weapons war. Wait for Him. 


As long as it is God that is at the fore of that battle, you have nothing to fear. You are more than a conqueror! Stand still and know He is God!

Causeless Or Caused? (2)

Concluding part………


3. YOUR SPIRITUAL PARENT: “You must not dishonor God or curse any of your rulers. Ex22v28. God has placed your spiritual fathers and mothers in place to guide and lead you. They are God’s representatives in your life. Under no circumstance must you speak ill of them. 

Check out this story- 

Elisha left Jericho and went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, a group of boys from the town began mocking and making fun of him. “Go away, baldy!” they chanted. “Go away, baldy!” Elisha turned around and looked at them, and he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of them (2Kings 2v23-24);


Gehazi got himself and his generations after him cursed because of his greed, dishonesty and lying. He sold out his future and that of his children yet unborn for ‘a morsel of bread’ (material things). 


It is very easy to fall into the temptation of speaking against these anointed ones especially when it seems to you that they do not ‘deserve’ to be in the position they are in or that you could have fit better in the position. Always remember, God placed them there. He decides whom to choose. 


I am sure you will prefer this part: If anyone decides to curse you without curse, the person has simply bought a lion for himself. Of course, the lion will devour him. Let them curse you if they want. The Lord will turn it around to blessing for you. They will fall into the pit they have dug for you. When Shimei was cursing David, he had the right attitude. He believed God was a just God. He would turn the curses around to blessing. 


Ps 109v19,20,28: 

Now may his curses return and cling to him like clothing; may they be tied around him like a belt.” 

May those curses become the LORD’s punishment for my accusers who speak evil of me. 

Then let them curse me if they like, 

but you will bless me! When they attack me, they will be disgraced! But I, your servant, will go right on rejoicing! 


In conclusion, “Look, today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse! (Deut 11v26) The ball is in your court. God cannot be mocked; what a man sows he will reap. The choice is yours to make. Choose wisely!


OMOSEBI,  Mary Omolola

Causeless Or Caused? (1)

Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse will not land on its intended victim. Prov 26v2 (NLT) 



This verse is very explicit. You do not need to fear any curse as long as you do not deserve it. That curse cannot rest on you if you are innocent. There are however several things to watch out for. This is not about being negative; it is what is clearly stated in the Bible. ‘The LORD is slow to anger and filled with unfailing love, forgiving every kind of sin and rebellion. But he does not excuse the guilty. (‘The LORD is slow to anger and filled with unfailing love, forgiving every kind of sin and rebellion. But he does not excuse the guilty- Num 14v18a). You could be deserving of curses if you offend the following. 


1. GOD- YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER: But you will be cursed if you reject the commands of the LORD your God and turn away from him and worship gods you have not known before. (Deut 11v28). If you disobey His commandments, He will punish. You are beckoning on curses i

●You engage in idolatry (Deut 27v15). If you exalt any other person or thing above God, you are inviting curses to yourself.

●You are a thief (Deut27v17)- if you take whatever is not yours, you are cursed. If you forcefully take anything, or you pick thinks from your place of work that were not released to you, you are signing up for trouble.

●You are deceitful and misleading (Deut 27v18)- if you deceive or mislead the blind(physically blind spiritually blind or the ignorant), you are playing with fire. This might look trivial but it is a serious matter. A common example is telling someone who asks you for direction to go the opposite way. Let’s be careful.

●You deny someone justice (Deut 27v19)- if God has placed you in a position of authority, use the position correctly. Don’t oppress those that are at your mercy simply because you don’t like them or because they are not in your ‘click’. If your friend is the one that is wrong, tell him he is wrong. Don’t manipulate judgement.

●You engage in sexual sin(s) (Deut 27v20-23)- any form of sexual sin (fornication, adultery, homosexualism, bestialism, incest, etc) brings curses upon man. Beware

●You are a murderer (Deut 27v25)- “thou shall not kill!” Don’t kill another person’s vision, don’t kill another person’s chances of being successful,…by your manipulation.

●You close your eyes to the needs of the poor (Prov 28v27)- do not ignore the under-privileged. Be sensitive to their needs and help them when you have the ability to. God has blessed you so that you can be a blessing!

●You are a Hypocrite (Is 65v1-7)- stop the ‘holier than thou’ attitude. Stop living double lives. Be plain before the Lord. Stop deceiving yourself.

●You are a covenant breaker (Jer11v3)- be a man/woman of your word! Fulfill your vows. Fulfill your part of the covenant you make with God or man.

●You are a cheat (Mal1v14)- you will be cheating yourself indirectly if you continue to cheat because the blessing you should have received if you had not cheated will be cut down or stopped. Stop cheating your customers, workers, employers,…Remember, you can not cheat God. He sees everything you are hiding. Remember Ananias and his wife (Sapphira)!

●You preach things contrary to the Word of God or uphold false doctrines (Gal1v8-9)- someone might actually be falling into error without taking note. Let the Word of God ONLY, be your standard and God Himself- your examiner.

●You don’t love the Lord (1Cor 16v22)- I will like to take a pause on this point. If you love God, you will obey His commandment. Disobeying the Lord causes curses to migrate towards you(Deut 28v15-45). Love the Lord and Live! 


2. YOUR BIOLOGICAL PARENT: ‘Cursed is anyone who dishonors father or mother.’ 

And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’ (Deut 27v16). 

Do not dishonour your parents. Make sure not to insult them. Dishonouring one’s parent is a capital offense. As a matter of fact, in the old testament, the death penalty was the punishment for dishonoring a parent (Ex21v27). 

No matter what achievement you might have made or had, give your parent the honour they deserve. Long and short of this- Honour your parent! 


OMOSEBI, Mary Omolola

You Are Important

Your vision may be to stand alongside the number one man or leading lady. Don’t let anyone devalue you because you are not leading the pack. A well served man or woman is renewed and strengthened by your service. You are as important as the number one fellow.

Be faithful and God will preserve you (Ps 31v23). He cannot forget or overlook your labour of love. Every part of your body is important. 


Imagine your head being alone without any other part. That means your head will do the thinking, walking, digestion, defecating,… (I can’t imagine it that’s why I’m asking you to do that- on a lighter mood) 


After all, who is Apollos? Who is Paul? We are only God’s servants through whom you believed the Good News. Each of us did the work the Lord gave us. I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. 1Cor 3v5-8 


God assigns to each person specific assignments. Face your duties. Carry them out diligently. Don’t devalue yourself. Don’t let anyone look down on you. The way to go about that is by making sure you understand clearly your assignment. If you do, you will be able to face anyone boldly and tell them “Don’t try to misdirect or confuse me. I know where I am headed and I know the means by which I must get there!” If you don’t know or you are not sure, ask your maker (God). He is the master-planner. 


You are important in God’s eyes (to Him) irrespective of the assignment you are given- leading or following.

Don’t Stop!

 

 

The story of Isaac in Genesis 26 is a story that challenges me in a marvellous way. It is a story of persistence. He was faced with all sorts of challenges. His efforts were being frustrated. He however was not frustrated. His enemies did all they could to make sure He did not achieve his aim. They kept pulling trouble with him.
 

 

They pushed and pulled him but he did not reach a breaking point. He had this quality that resembled that of a good elastic material. He always returned to status quo. He was always back to pursue his goal. He had a vision. His eyes were stuck on the prize. He was going to dig a well that belonged to him no matter what. He refused to be distracted. He did not give up. He was struck down but he wasn’t destroyed. He braced up and moves on to take over new grounds. 
 

 

In persistence lies your strength. You must keep pushing. The harder you push, the weaker the obstacle in your way becomes.
 

 

I am here to encourage you today to hold on to your God-given dreams. Don’t you give up now. You’ve come too far to do that. God has not brought you this far to leave you stranded. Build up your most holy faith. 
Don’t give up trying. 
Don’t give up on that marriage.
Don’t give up on that child.
Don’t give up on that business.
Don’t stop! Don’t quit! Don’t give up!

 

 

 

Tell yourself, 
“I am going to birth a life baby. I don’t care how many times this pregnancy has been tampered with. 
I am a survivor.
I am an overcomer.
I will fulfill destiny.
I am not giving up.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

 

 

 

Like David was told here’s the message for you today:
Pursue!
Overtake!
Recover all!

 

 

 

Go and win with Jesus!

I Will Lift Up My Eyes To The Lord


It’s easy to fall into the error of relying on human beings in this age and time when it seems like the tendency of you getting what you want is higher if you know people in ‘high places’.

The truth is that many have shifted their focus from God Almighty with whom nothing is impossible unto His handiwork.

To this end, many of us have become idolaters without even perceiving it.

Think about it yourself…

Once a problem arises, your phone is the next point of call. You surf through your contact list to see who should help you. You begin making several calls and your faith is in a man like you. Some even brag that they can’t have challenges in certain aspects. Even though with their lips they are saying, “God is in control”, what is actually running through their mind is “My uncle the Senator is in control”.



 
Many forget to ask God for His view. I have heard people say severally that “God will not come down from heaven, He will definitely use human beings”. Who says? Have you forgotten that He chose to feed Elijah by sending ravens to give him food? You need to stop pre-empting God. He chooses how and by whom He would wrought His wonders. Why not wait for Him to choose who He wishes to use to solve your problem? He definitely knows best. He never disappoints. If only you will trust Him. 


 
Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth? (Isaiah 2:22 AMP)
From whom do you seek help? 
 
In whom do you trust?
 
In God I trust!

But God Speaks

 

Why seek solutions to your problem from the created when you can go to the creator? Why seek answers from mere men? Why yield to the suggestion coming from whoever to go to someplace where they can carry out some divination concerning your challenge? Why bow to other gods? 
 
And when they say to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,” should not a people seek their God? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living? (Isaiah 8:19)
 
One major thing that makes it impossible for us to hear God speak to us is SIN. Sin creates a thick wall between ourselves and God. In science, we were taught that sound waves are transported by air. That’s why when you are locked up in a brick-walled room, you won’t hear a thing being said on the outside. Sin builds a sound-proof wall around us. Only repentance can bring down that wall. Just like God would not hear us when we live in sin, we also will not hear Him when He speaks. Sin is an ear-plug. You must let the blood of Jesus watch you if you must hear Him.
 
Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him That there was no justice. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear (Isaiah 59:1-2).
 
The Holy Spirit is whom we need to hear from God. He tunes our antennas to the frequency of God. It will therefore be impossible to hear God speak if the Holy Spirit is not in you. Before you start complaining that you can’t hear from Him, check yourself. The problem in the communication line must lie in you. God’s promise stands sure. He has promised that once we are endowed with The Holy Spirit, we will be in the know of the ‘hidden’ things.
 
“In the Last Days,” God says, “I will pour out my Spirit on every kind of people: Your sons will prophesy, also your daughters; Your young men will see visions, your old men dream dreams. When the time comes, I’ll pour out my Spirit On those who serve me, men and women both, and they’ll prophesy (Acts 2:17).


 
The issue with many is their inability to wait for God to speak to them. The ‘NOW’ syndrome has taken over many people’s lives. It is eating into the lives of many children of God today like cancer. They are so in a hurry that they decide to look for shortcuts. They choose to go to palm readers, card readers, sorcerers, etc. They don’t believe in the ability of God to do all things. They have forgotten that no one can help God. He is the All-knowing God. In Him alone lies the answers that you seek.
 
God has spoken once; twice have I heard that power belongs to God. In case you are still doubting that God speaks, I tell you today that He does speak. Jesus is the Way and the Truth. You want the truth, Jesus is the only Way to it.
