PREPARE TO BE PREFERRED

PREPARE TO BE PREFERRED

ANCHOR QUOTE: " to be prepared is better than to be preferred ; it is what you have prepared for that you preferred to " - Osunsakin Adewale

PREPARE TO BE PREFERRED: Esther 2:7-11And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut._ (Matthew 25:10)A lot of bachelors and spinsters of marriageable age in churches, are not only unmarried, but are sadly 'unmarriable!' Why? Their unpreparedness for the sacred institution. One who fails to prepare adequately for an examination/ a competition, has planned to fail! Marriage will work well for those who prepare well for it. The preparation is all-encompassing - spiritual , social, emotional, economic and psychological. A serious-minded brother/sister will be looking forward prayerfully to an equally serious-minded would-be partner. Any young man/woman looking forward to be preferred by the best suitor possible, must put all these into proper considerations.
Among others, shabby dressing habits, impolite manners, and unkept house/body, have made many to lose their God-ordained suitors, regardless of their being born again and heaven-conscious! If you are single and godly, you stand the chance to get the best, if you can add virtues to your faith *(2 Peter 2:5)*. You can learn a lot from Esther. Apart from divine favour and providence, she was well-prepared. Eventually, she was preferred (Esther 2:9).Get it right: your physical outlook alone is incomprehensive enough as readiness to earn you your preferred suitor. Cosmetic applications are insufficient to be preferred. As a matter of fact, they fade away when battered by wrong marriage afflictions! Try to prepare yourself more, with godly virtuethe right beauty (1 Peter 3:3-4). Ultimately, we should reminded always, that every believer who refuses to be readily prepared for Christ's second coming will not be allowed to marry The Bridegroom, and that would be the worst for such, on that glorious day! *(Matthew 25:13). Prepare, never to miss the ultimate appointment with Him. PRAYER POINTS:1.Lord give me the grace to be prepared for Your coming. 2.Lord, endow our teeming youths with the right qualities that would make good and godly homes. 3.Lord, restore Your peace in every Christian home being troubled by Satan, the author of confusion, in Jesus' name. LOVE ONE: 1.The Chief Butler introduced Joseph to Pharaoh, 2. Mordecai introduced Esther to the King, 3. King Saul's servant introduced David to the King. As from Today, someone will introduce you to the helper of your destiny, in the name of Jesus. Note this: 1. Obed-edom never applied for the ark, 2. Joseph never contested for the palace, 3. Elisha was never a son of a prophet, 4. Mary never contested to be mother of Jesus, 5. Peter never invited Jesus to his ship.As from today, Divine Favour, Mercy and Grace of GOD will distinguish you and your household. God's plan for your life will come to manifestation ....At the Altar of mercy. Your case is settled. No evil judgment shall keep you down again. By mercy your glory is restored. Your destiny is healed. The earnest expectations of your enemies shall be disappointed. Your broken hope is renewed. By mercy you're taken over your enemies territory. Those good things you've stretched your spiritual and physical muscles to get and you couldn't. Mercy shall bring them to you without struggles. By mercy you're recovering without limitation in Jesus name Amen. As you send this message to many people... God will send you  helper as many as you want in Jesus name. King Saul and his host of Army got to the battlefield earlier but David came last to take the victory. It does not matter who got there before you, It does not matter what people are saying about you, Your arrival will break barriers, your miracle will break protocols, your testimony shall last forever. You shall be the most preferred anywhere you go .

YOUR GIFT IS YOURS:  LUKE 11:5-8  Give, and you will receive, your gift will return to you in full press down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give determines the amount you get back" (Luke 12:33) .Two sons of a father embarked on a journey to sojourn in a far country from their homeland with a specific condition of stay in the land. After a while, the young men were blessed and began to send gifts for the enjoyment of their aged father who had laboured to send them abroad. Their father knew that one of the conditions to travel to a far country is that, never should grown up men return to live in their father's houses. So, he helped his sons to achieve the provision of a home for each of them, in accordance with the gift sent to him. At the expiration of the permitted time to live in the foreign land, the men returned to their homeland. The first son was able to have a beautiful and befitting home, with all he had sent to his father, but the gifts sent by the second son were just enough to get him an uncompleted building. They then realised that what they termed as gifts to their father was actually theirs. Be wise? Know these for sure: 1.  Givers never become poor for giving. Rather, they are actually enriching their heavenly banks in preparation for their eternal bliss. 2.  Givers would definitely get what they give, in uncountable folds. 3.  Giving is the outward expression of God's love in man's heart, and that he has gotten much from God to give in honour of Him.4.  Giving is the reflection of God's character; imbibe it. PRAYER POINTS: 1. Help me, Lord, to be sensitive to Your leading in the area of giving.2. Lord, provide for all my needs, so that I will have enough to give in honour of You always.3. Father, help our leader to manage the country's resources as they ought to, so that the masses would have their fair share of the nation's God-given wealth.

I want to share with you today a testimony from my own life on the obedience to God, and the importance of practicing the word of God in the form of giving. There is not a single day that passes that I do not give unto the Lord. I can remember a time where the Lord said I should go and give all to a certain man of God-Bishop Dag, I was instructed to give to bless this man, his wife, his ministry and the programs he oversees. At the time, I did not have a vehicle, but the Lord said I should do this. So I took all the money I had and I went to his church, and gave to him as the Lord had instructed. Today I am loaded down with the blessings of the Lord, and I am serving the Lord, because the Lord has given me my own platform to share the gospel. We are to practice obedience to God in our giving on a daily basis. So, we up-and-coming ministers, need to be led by the Spirit of God- and locate a place where we can honor God and bring in to relative what God has planned for our lives. We also need to stop bragging and start listening to the voice of God, who is the one who does it all for us.

 Drums, Dancing and Noise  :
 Let all things be done decently and in order. 1 Corinthians 14:40. The things you have described . the Lord has shown me would take place just before the close of probation. Every uncouth thing will be demonstrated. There will be shouting, with drums, music, and dancing. The senses of rational beings will become so confused that they cannot be trusted to make right decisions. And this is called the moving of the Holy Spirit.The Holy Spirit never reveals itself in such methods, in such a bedlam of noise. This is an invention of Satan to cover up his ingenious methods for making of none effect the pure, sincere, elevating, ennobling, sanctifying truth for this time. . A bedlam of noise shocks the senses and perverts that which if conducted aright might be a blessing. The powers of Satanic agencies blend with the din and noise, to have a carnival, and this is termed the Holy Spirit's working.Those participating in the supposed revival receive impressions which lead them adrift. They cannot tell what they formerly knew regarding Bible principles. No encouragement should be given to this kind of worship. The same kind of influence came in after the passing of the time in 1844. The same kind of representations were made. Men became excited, and were worked by a power thought to be the power of God. Men and women, supposed to be guided by the Holy Spirit, held meetings in a state of nudity. They talked about holy flesh. They said they were beyond the power of temptation, and they sang, and shouted, and made all manner of noisy demonstrations . Satan was moulding the work, and sensuality was the result. The cause of God was dishonored. Truth, sacred truth, was leveled in the dust by human agencies. I bore my testimony, declaring that these fanatical movements, this din and noise, were inspired by the spirit of Satan, who was working miracles to deceive if possible the very elect. We need to be on our guard, to maintain a close connection with Christ, that we be not deceived by Satan's devices. The Lord desires to have in His service order and discipline, not excitement and confusion. And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.18. But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. Praise The Lord .Good Morning. Have A Blessed Day with Our Lord Jesus Christ
