THE REWARD OF OBEDIENCE LEVITICUS 26:1-13; JOHN 4:34-38

Introduction Obedience to God means to hear his word, trust Him, submit and surrender completely to  Him. Obedience is the gateway to supernatural abundance. You cannot have good success in life if you ignore the instructions in God’s word. Obey the instructions and you will be prosperous and successful (Jos.1:18).Your distinction in life is tied to your compliance with the instructions contained in God’s word (Deut. 28:1).Sacrifice is not a substitute to obedience (1 Samuel 15:22–23). Forty days fasting without obedience is personal punishment. It does not secure any favour from God for you. But there is great reward when you...

THE CALL OF GOD (1 SAMUEL 3:1-15; ACTS 9:1-18)

THE TRIUMPHANT ENTRY (ZECHARIAH 9:9-12; MARK 11:1-11)

Introduction. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before the Friday of Jesus’ crucifixion. It is one week before the resurrection of Jesus. The two events (the crucifixion/death and resurrection) have very important implications for every Christian. By grace of God, Jesus tasted death for all men (Heb. 2:9).He brings many sons to glory (Heb. 2:10).Through death, He destroyed the power of the devil, who has the power of death (Heb. 2:14).He made reconciliation for the sins of the people (Heb. 2:17).Jesus is our guarantee of eternal life (John 3:16 - 17) CCC Hymn 186:Celestial Church burst ye for joy. 1st lesson...

HEAVENLY TREASURES (EXODUS 34:22-26; MATT. 6:19-21)

Introduction. Harvest time is the period when we must: Offer sacrifices of praise to God (Heb. 13:15-16);Celebrate His goodness and mercies (Ps. 118:1);Bring thanks offering to God (Col.3:15-17). God has already blessed us, the celebration of the harvest is to thank Him for His grace (1 Cor. 15:10). Unfortunately, many people don’t have a full understanding of the spiritual implication of the harvest. They fail to show gratitude to God for all His blessings. Reasons: They are defeated by constant life struggles and worries;They forget in the midst of busyness and pressures;They feel let down by God due to painful...

VICTORY IN THE MIDST OF TRIBULATION (DANIEL 3: 1 – 26; ROMANS 8: 28 – 39)

Introduction.  It is normal for you to have tribulations (afflictions, persecution, sufferings, pains; trials, etc). You should expect them. We are of God, but the whole world lieth in wickedness (1 John 5:19).To live a godly life in Christ Jesus, you will suffer persecution (2 Tim. 3:12).You are appointed to suffer (1 Thes. 3:3).You will be hated for the sake of Jesus (Matt. 10:22). What is abnormal is for tribulations and afflictions to overcome a Christian. But if, in suffering with Jesus, you overcome tribulations and afflictions: You will also reign with Him (2 Tim. 2:12).You will be glorified with...

Introduction. We are serving a merciful and gracious God. By reason of our sins, nobody should expect the mercy of God. Yet, He bestows it upon us (Rom. 9:15 – 16). None of us should taste His love and grace. Yet, He sacrifice His only begotten son for us (John 3:16 – 17).Whatever you are or have achieved in this life is not by your power, but it’s God’s unmerited favour (1 Cor. 15:10). Mercy and Grace (Unmerited favour) of God Mercy and grace refer to the unmerited favour of God, but in different ways; vis: Mercy is God not punishing...
