UNCHANGEABLE GOD (MALACHI 3:6-18; JOHN 4:34-38)

Introduction. In the two lessons of today, God shows us that He does not change (Unchangeable God)  and teaches us to do His will. ­1st Lesson (Malachi 3:6-18)  “I am the Lord (Jehovah); I change not” (v6-7)  God’s hatred of all sins is unchangeable (Ps.5:5; 11:5; Hab. 1:13); God’s long-suffering to all sinners is unchangeable. That is why we are not consumed and destroyed         (2 Pet.3:9). God’s wisdom is unchangeable. He dispenses rewards to the good, and punishments to the wicked, in the fittest season (vv8-10). God’s will is unchangeable. He will never forget or forsake the righteous (vv16-18; Is.49:15-16))....

POWER OF PRAYER (PSALM 2:1-12; MATTHEW 6:1-15)

Introduction. God wants me to assure you that He knows what you are going through, your present condition and situation. How people are threatening and mocking you. He knows your feeling of depression and hopelessness (sighing and crying). I have absolute confidence that if you approaching God and ASK anything according to his will this year, He will listen, answer and move in response to your prayers (Matt.7:7; John 14:14; 1 John 5:14-15). 1st Lesson (Psalm 2:1-12).

SACRIFICE OF PRAISE (PROVERBS 13:12-25; REVELATION 3:1-13)

Introduction. Today, God commands that we should: Offer sacrifice of praise to Him through Jesus Christ (Heb. 13:15);Rejoice and celebrate His goodness and mercies (Ps.118:1);Praise and glorify Him (Ps.50:23).We praise God because He is the Alpha and Omega.    Before we look at the theme of the Cantata (Sacrifice of Praise), let us examine the two texts for today. In them we will see the need to offer Sacrifice of Praise to God continually. 1st Lesson (Proverbs 13:12-25). Whoever despises, hates or rejects the word and counsel [of God] brings destruction upon himself, but he who  fears and respects the commandment...

GOD IS IN CONTROL (JOB 42 :1-17: 2 COR. 2:1:17)

Introduction. The Bible lessons for today are written to the Church and the members in particular for example and learning (2 Tim. 3:16-17). That when we meet severe challenges in life, we should through absolute trust in God have hope (Rom.15:4-7). This morning, I will be talking on the subject God is in control. 1st Lesson (Job 42: 1-17). Three things in the story of Job have troubled me very much. But we find all the three complaints thoroughly redressed and everything brought under control at the end. A holy man as Job was so anxious/worried and wicked /unforgiving to...

POWER OF A GRATEFUL HEART (LEVITICUS 23:33-44; GALATIANS 6:6-12)

Introduction. This is harvest time.We celebrate the harvest without a full understanding of its spiritual implication. Harvest is the  period when we must: Offer sacrifices of praise to God (Heb. 13:15-16);Rejoice and celebrate His goodness and mercies (Ps.118:1);Praise and glorify God (Ps.50:23). Unfortunately, many people are pretending. They are not grateful to God; they fail to thank Him; and refuse to celebrate His goodness. Reasons: They are defeated as a result of constant life demands, struggles and worries;They forget in the midst of busyness and pressures;They feel let down by God as a result of painful life blows and losses;They...

RESTORED BY GRACE (ISAIAH 54: 1-10; GALATIANS 4: 16-30)

Introduction. God wants me to assure you that He knows what you are going through, your present condition and situation. How many people are mocking, reproaching  and despising you.

Prophetic Utterance. Whether the world likes or not, God will turn your sorrow to...

OVERCOMING FEAR (I KINGS 19: 1 – 18; HEBREWS 7: 1 – 28)

Introduction. Many of us were called into the Church from the fear of Satan and the world (tribulations, afflictions, persecution, sufferings, pains; trials, etc). Even within the boundaries of this great sanctuary (God’s place of preservation, refuge and fortress), many of us are still living a life of fear. Fear is a terrible experience, with grave consequences: Satan uses the fear of death to hold men in bondage (Heb. 2:15).Jesus says you are fearful because you have no faith (Mk.4:40).Fear and unbelief are opposed to faith(Matt.17:20).The fearful and unbelieving, along with other sinners will go into hell fire (Rev. 21:8)....

JESUS: THE GREAT HIGH PRIEST (LEVITICUS 10:1-20; HEBREW 10:1-18)

Introduction. God has sent me to tell you that you are not ordinary people. You are extra-ordinary people. You are created to do  supernatural exploits. You are all priests of the Most High God. A priest is one who offers sacrifices and intercedes before God; and reconciles other people, families, nations and the world with God. 1stly, you are a priest by bearing your own sacrifices before God (worship; praise; prayers; thanksgiving; tithe and offerings). 2ndly, you make sacrifice by interceding for others. As a priest you are:                                                                  Chosen (selected from among several others).Royal (have honour; dignity; glory and authority).Holy...

Introduction. I have very good news for you. If you come to God today, obey and serve Him: God will never leave, forget or forsake you (Is.49:14-16). He will give you everlasting peace and eternal joy (John 14:27-28). Today, God sent me to warn you about the philosophy of the worldly man that has no concept in God. It may appear to be true, but it is not the truth. It says death is the end of all things; and There is no hope beyond the grave. God says I should assure you that: Your work in this life is...
