The increase

Though thy beginning was small
Yet thy latter end should greatly increase
The little one shall become a thousand
And the small one a strong nation
I, the LORD, will hasten it in its time.

Job 8:7, Isaiah 60:22

It is God who giveth the increase

God has a package of goodness, mercies and loving kindness each day for his children. He has designed your day to always be fruitful and blessed. However, some people at the end of the day end up with regrets about how their day went. This shouldn’t be the case.
It is your responsibility to command your day and your morning to the desired outcome. Thus scripture asks in Job 38:12, ‘Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place?’. Do not leave your day to chance!
Command your day to influence its course. Avoid those who lift their voices early in the morning in greeting to curse your day. Do not lift your voice in greeting either. Share the peace of God in a soft voice and make melody in your heart. God bless you and keep you.

Lead me, LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies. Make your way straight before me.(Psalm 5:8)

The hand of God will keep you. You will not fall into any trap set before you. The mouth of anyone who comes to curse your morning with loud greetings is shut. You will have a great day. Yea, the best day ever.
Take advantage of the day and be at your best. God bless you and preserve you this day in Jesus’s name. Amen!



Midweek service

Last Thursday, the Man of God took a question on why Jesus’s resurrected body still bore the marks of his crucifixion and whether a person’s glorious body will bear all marks that his physical body bore.
In answering, he made us understand from scripture that marks we receive in our bodies as a result of our works or sufferings in Christ will persist in our glorious bodies. The bodies we receive on exiting this earth are a reward as a result of our works in Christ.
Truly, what matters on earth are the righteous acts in Christ that wrought our glorious body. Do not be found naked at his appearing. Join us later tonight as the Man of God, Pastor Obed, throws more light on the subject.

A very present help…

God is our refuge and strength
A very present help in trouble
Therefore we will have no fear
Though the earth be removed
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled
Though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof _ Psalm 46:1-3

Know that He is God
No matter what situation you are in, the Lord is with you and will surely deliver you when you call upon His name!

His presence

The Lord’s presence is with you
Not to judge you the moment you fail
His presence is with you to direct you, guide you, lead you into becoming more like Christ
And to make you a success in every endeavor you undertake

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:6 KJV

Blood speaks!

The blood of birds, animals and man has a voice. Scripture tells of the blood of Abel and the prophets which speak. (Luke 11:50-51) In the days of the Old Testament, the blood of doves and lambs was sufficient to cover sin for a year.
In the New Testament however, the believer has a superior blood that speaks for him, it is the blood of Jesus Christ. This blood forgives and cleanses the sin of the world, the sins of believers, and ensures our participation and inheritance in Christ.
The blood that was shed for us in essence, is not the red flowing substance from Jesus’ body but the life that he gave for us. Even in the courts of heaven, this multifaceted blood speaks for us.
In the face of any accusation or charge in the courts, the disposition of the believer is to remain focused on God and not the accusation. For God is faithful; he who justified us by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ will justify and acquit us of all charges.
Walk with your head held high, and your focus on the Lord because you are victorious in Christ. Be conscious always of this truth.
Join us in fellowship tomorrow as we continue our study on the Ontology of Heaven, Shalom!
