ANCHOR QUOTE: "When you are DOWN to nothing ..God is UP to something"! -Bishop T.D. Jake.
TODAY'S SERMONS :- Confess and Be Free: As a child, I liked playing with stones till one day i threw one and it hit my mother's fowl and it died instantly. I thought i was just alone but surprisingly, my sister was right behind me watching. Then she said "give me #100 and i won't tell mum" I said "i don't have but please don't tell her, she will beat me up." The following day, Mum told her to wash the plates and sweep the surrounding, but she said: "Mum, TOM said he will do it" Then she came to me and said: "TOM, you wash the plates and sweep the surrounding or else, don't forget u killed a fowl" Without hesitating, i washed the plates and swept the surrounding for her. The next day, mum told her to go and fetch water and fill the drum. She said again: "Mum, TOM said he will do it" Then she came to me and said: "TOM,you remember that fowl?? Fill this drum with water
or else.." That's how i drew water and filled the drum. That same day in the evening, mum sent her to the market to buy food items, and again she said: "Mum, TOM said he will go and buy them" she came to me again and said: "TOM, don't forget that the fowl is still dead, go to the market and buy the food items or else......"I just stood up and went to my Mum with tears in my eyes, i found her sitted in the house, i went to her, knelt down and said: "Mum, I'm so sorry pls forgive me. I'm the one who killed your fowl but it wasn't a deliberate action, please Mum forgive me I'm sorry." Then she replied: "my son, the day you killed the fowl, i was at the window watching everything that happened. Your sister made you her slave because you did not want to come to me to confess and apologise. But now you have done it, you will be free, she will no longer use you again."Lesson: Each time we sin, God sees us and our sins make us slaves, the moment u confess to God and ask for forgiveness,you are set free. "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness" 1John

Sometimes You Need CHARACTER, Not Prayer: No matter how we pray, attitude has its place. This the strong truth a lot of Christians fail to understand. Prayer is good, but prayer isn't the answer to everything. Somewhere in the scriptures, the Bible says that before we pray, he will answer..You know why? Because we've exhibited attitudes that will attract miracles.. People, sometimes pray for miracles to happen, what you need is character, not prayer, not speaking in tongues. God is a spirit, and for him to bless you, he needs to pass through a man. If you lack good relationships with men, you'll hardly be blessed. God works with relationship.You must learn to treat people with courtesy..The Shunammite woman must have been praying for a child all through her life. I'm sure. She was a prominent woman and surely she had money but couldn't buy a child. You know what made her have a child? She took care of Elisha, a man of God. She respected him, she was hospitable, she was kind, she had character! Elisha, spoke into her womb and in a year, she had a child. Assuming she wasn't hospitable? Polite, and kind? She would've still been praying and fasting, binding and casting demons that don't exist. Sometimes, we are our demons. Our attitudes are our destiny killers. Some of you have insulted people that were divinely orchestrated to help you..Some of you are keeping malice with your destiny helper.. Some of you are still suffering, not because you lack talent but because you lack character. Talent is attractive. Anyone can be talented, but character is a proof of discipline. A proof of responsibility. Character sustains the attraction talent gives you. Character is virtue, and sometimes what we call FAVOUR is triggered by virtue.Mary was a Virgin. She had virtue! Which attracted the favour of being the mother of the Saviour of the world!! In all thy getting, get character..Respect people. Treat strangers with courtesy..Be kind.. Your Angel won't always come like an Angel.. Look down on nobody, anyone can change your life. It was the maid of Naaman, that told him where to get healing. Naaman was a great man but had leprosy. He must have visited the greatest hospital in the world as of that time. Who would've ever thought that the solution to his problem was in the mouth of his maid? Sometimes the solutions of our problems are trapped in the mouths of mere people, but many of us are not humble enough to see it. Prayer is not all. Build relationships. God will use man. Respect people. Get character. May we not be our own obstacle to receiving miracles! Amen. SIN: A sin offering was a sacrifice, made according to the Mosaic Law, which provided atonement for sin. The Hebrew phrase for “sin offering” literally means “fault offering.” The sin offering was made for sins committed in ignorance, or unintentional sins. The ritualistic method of the sin offering and the animal to be offered varied depending on the status of the sinner. For example, a high priest who sinned unintentionally would offer a young bull. A king or a prince would offer a young male goat. People in the private sector would sacrifice a young female goat or lamb, unless they were too poor, in which case they were only required to offer two turtledoves or pigeons. Full details of the sin offering and the requirements associated with it are enumerated in Leviticus 4 and Numbers 15. Again, the sin offering was sacrificed when a person sinned unintentionally by breaking one of the Lord’s commandments and later realized his guilt (Leviticus 4:27). Sin offerings were also part of the ceremonies on the Day of Atonement, as the high priest made two sin offerings: a bull for himself and a young male goat for the congregation (Leviticus 16:11, 15). Unlike some other offerings, the sin offering was not eaten. The live animal was brought to the altar and the sinner was required to lay his hand on the head of the animal (Leviticus 4:29). Then the animal was killed, at which point the priest would take some of the blood and put it on the horns of the altar (verse 30). In some cases, some of the blood was also sprinkled inside the tabernacle (verses 6 and 17). Then all the rest of the blood was poured at the base of the altar (verse 34). The fat of the sin offering was removed and burned on the altar. But all the rest of the carcass was taken “outside the camp to a place ceremonially clean, where the ashes are thrown,” and there the carcass was burned “in a wood fire on the ash heap” (verse 12). “In this way the priest will make atonement for them for the sin they have committed, and they will be forgiven” (verse 35). The sin offering was a poignant picture of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the sins of the world. He was a “lamb without blemish” (1 Peter 1:19; cf. Leviticus 4:32) whose precious blood was spilled after being publicly slain. Jesus was crucified outside the city of Jerusalem, just as the sin offering was to be burnt outside the camp (Hebrews 13:12; cf. Leviticus 4:12). Just as the sacrificial lamb makes atonement for unintentional sins, Jesus’ blood made atonement for the sin of any person who realizes his guilt before God and asks for that atonement to be applied to him (John 3:16; Ephesians 1:7). “Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins” (Hebrews 9:22). Every person has broken the Law of God in one way or another, whether we realize it or not. Humanity is sinful, and we are all guilty before God (Romans 3:23). It must have been painful for sinners under the Mosaic Law to slaughter an innocent animal when they knew they were the ones who had done wrong. In the same way, it is painful for us to admit our guilt and to know that the innocent and holy Son of God took the punishment for our sin. But this salvation God has provided, and it is the only way. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Praise the Lord that sin offerings are no longer required, because we have been redeemed “with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect” (1 Peter 1:19).
National Ruin Follows National Apostasy: The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Isaiah 24. The people of the United States have been a favored people; but when they restrict religious liberty, surrender Protestantism, and give countenance to popery, the measure of their guilt will be full, and "national apostasy" will be registered in the books of heaven. The result of this apostasy will be national ruin. By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near .Through spiritualism, Satan appears as a benefactor of the race, healing the diseases of the people, and professing to present a new and more exalted system of religious faith; but at the same time he works as a destroyer...While appearing to the children of men as a great physician who can heal all their maladies, he will bring disease and disaster, until populous cities are reduced to ruin and desolation.... And then the great deceiver will persuade men that those who serve God are causing these evils. As men depart further and further from God, Satan is permitted to have power over the children of disobedience. He hurls destruction among men. There is calamity by land and sea. Property and life are destroyed by fire and flood. Satan resolves to charge this upon those who refuse to bow to the idol which he has set up. His agents point to Seventh-day Adventists as the cause of the trouble. "These people stand out in defiance of law," they say. "They desecrate Sunday. Were they compelled to obey the law for Sunday observance, there would be a cessation of these terrible judgments."
A PREMIUM ON THE SPIRIT : For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come (1 Timothy 4:8). Some people claim to be making progress spiritually, yet their lives are full of ups and downs. “My spiritual life is okay, but I have problems in my business,” some may say. This ought not to be. God expects us to make spiritual progress always. He expects us to grow. If you can make spiritual progress, progress in every other area of your life is absolutely assured, because the spiritual controls the physical. Your spiritual life means much more than prayer, Bible study, winning souls, or going to church. Galatians 5:25 says, “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit". To walk in the Spirit means that everything you do: thinking, talking, seeing, eating and so on, must be from the light of His Word. As you continually place your health, family, business, and finances under the light of God, God’s Word will give you total balance, and your life will be a declaration of the whole counsel of God. Ensure to always give your spiritual life the priority it deserves. If your physical life is wonderful and you’ve achieved material and emotional success without giving attention to your spiritual walk, it won’t take too long before those areas are jeopardized. Remember, you’re not a physical being, but primarily a spirit being. Therefore, if your spiritual life isn’t together, you’ll have problems in all other areas sooner or later. But once it is working out well, it will produce the life that’s needed in every other thing about you. PRAYER:Dear Father, I thank you, for as I meditate on the Word, I’m changed, from glory to glory. I make progress in every area of my life: in my health, finances, business and academics; I make progress spiritually, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen 1 Timothy 4:7-8* But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself [rather] unto godliness. 8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. Galatians 5:16 [This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. DO AS YOU ARE TOLD: very where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry...Philippians 4:12 The apostle Paul was intent on obeying the Lord. If the instruction was hunger, he was prepared for it; if the instruction was fullness, he would obey! The consequence of obeying or disobeying one little instruction can be so great that no sacrifice could ever compensate for the act of disobedience. Think about Jesus, who by one act of obedience has rescued millions from the throes of Hell. There is nothing like obedience in the eyes of God. To obey is better than to sacrifice. This is the most important truth you must learn about obedience. I remember the story of an army lieutenant who received orders to fire his artillery at the enemy . As his soldiers prepared to fire, the radio operator had a message from the general asking the lieutenant to hold his fire. Something had changed: the enemy position had now been occupied by his own troops. The lieutenant was so zealous to fight that he did not listen to the radio operator, but rather opened fire and pounded his own soldiers.God is like the army general, who sees the whole picture. He knows when to fire and when not to fire; He knows when to sacrifice and when not to. I have learnt that to obey is better than to sacrifice. God has sometimes asked us not to do things that we habitually do. Could it be that there will be times that it is more important not to preach, than it is to preach because that is what God says? Start Your Day With a blessing. All will be well.
