 It is a Great Thing to Serve the Lord
Sun, Nov 11, 2018

In the final analysis, there will be a distinction between those who serve God and those who do not. It may not seem like it now but it will be so. Psalm 27:4 -  make a commitment to dedicate your life to the will of God. You need to locate yourself in God's presence and His Church. When you serve God and be present in His House, your life will change for the better. Benefits of serving the Lord: 1) There is beauty that comes in our lives when we stay in the House of the Lord - Psalm 27:4. God makes us beautiful; He turns around our lives for the better. God specializes in changing lives of those who hold onto Him against all odds. 2) There is safety in times of trouble for those who remain in God's presence - Psalm 27:5. It doesn't mean you won't face problems. It means that God will be with you during and will see you through the hard times. 3) Revelations 7:13-17: a) There shall never hunger. God satisfies the hunger of our souls. God will take care of your needs including spiritual ones. It is only when you are in God's house when your life will have a meaningful purpose. b) God will quench your thirst. c) God will protect you God will build a hedge around everything that concerns. d) God will feed you God will feed you with His Word which is applicable to your life - He will ensure that His Word will grow you to become who He has called you to be. e) God will lead you to living waters - He will refresh your soul. f) God will wipe away every tear from your eyes. When you decide to serve God and dwell in House, there will be a distinction between you and the wicked.
Soul Winning: The Biggest Priority of our Christian Mission
Sun, Nov 04, 2018

“The unfinished work of the Church is to make sure every person on earth hears about the finished work of the Cross” Louie Giglio. If a church becomes a social movement it faces the danger of self-centred living; rooted in traditionalism, pride, and exclusivity. This kind of church will miss the point as well as her reward. An unhealthy preoccupation with personal possessions and natural affections is the main reason why many reject the gracious invitation of God. People come up with lame excuses when their priority is out of order. There will still be a great banquet with many people in attendance based on three facts: a) What God purpose to do will always prevail. b) There is a category of people who will respond to God’s gracious invitation in honour of a sacrificial preparation; the deficient and the destitute. c)There is an effective method which will produce better results; ANAGKAZO - Persuade. Where there’s a need, God raises a servant. Change their opinion through communion.
Thanksgiving Seminar: Biblical Reasons for Thanksgiving
Tue, Oct 30, 2018

Thanksgiving is not an abstract or loosely existing idea. It is relational and is driven by love and not compliance. It is a response to a benefit or an act of kindness. Biblical Reasons for Thanksgiving: 1) It is a command (1 Chr. 16:8). It is an act of obedience that leads to righteousness. 2) It is a password into God’s presence (Ps. 95:2). You cannot murmur, complain and worship at the same time. 3) It is a response to God’s goodness (Ps. 107:21-22). 4) It is the believer’s lifestyle (Phil. 4:6; Col. 4:2). It is a way of life. What is the cause for your gratitude to God? There has to be a purpose to practice obedience through thanksgiving. Always use the password of thanksgiving into His presence.
Thanksgiving Seminar: Introduction to Thanksgiving
Mon, Oct 29, 2018

Thanksgiving is extending one's hand to appreciate God for what he has done and for who he is. Extension of hands is a reflection of what is in the heart. Foundational principles of thanksgiving: 1) It is relational (Psalm 79:13). 2) It is objective. It is not ambiguous, it is has a goal and a reason (Psalm 106:1). 3) It is free-willed - it is not forced but rather spontaneous (Leviticus 22:29). Hence we need to be clear about our personal relationship with God and heavenly register needs to be updated so that as we bring our thanksgiving it is registered in heaven. Secondly, be clear and precise about the reason for thanksgiving. Lastly, we need to remember to give thanks out of free-will.
Thanksgiving Seminar: Uncommon Optimism of God
Sun, Oct 28, 2018
54:10
When God chooses to walk with someone the state they are in does not matter. For there is something about God that is different to man. God always looks at the positive side. Thanksgiving is a function of relationship and accrued value out of that relationship. Tenacity of the love of God: 1) God perfects what he begins (Phil 1:16; Psalm 138:8). Christian faith is always under construction. 2) His love is persistent, pursuing and tireless (Exo 3:4; Judges 6:11-24). God loves even when there is no reason to. 3) God selection is sovereign (1 Cor 1:2-29; Judges 6:15). Walking with God is not about who you are but who you are with. God is always looking for what is best. Brokenness and failure need not to be final

Gift-giving, whether for pacification or appreciation purposes, is an ancient practice as old as humanity itself. But what we have never been good at is to understand the motivations and outcomes of this practice.Motivation: 1) Performance - this kind is the cheapest and easiest way to honour your God. The action is normally in response to some action that directly benefits us. 2) Person -this kind is costly as it is based on relationship and principle of honour. The action is in response to the revelation of who God is. 3) Prophetic - prayerful individuals. This kind is often is response to some divine revelation. Mount Moriah had both a rich history and a rich future. Outcomes: 1) Affluence 2) Influence.
Give Credit to Christ
Sun, Oct 14, 2018
A thoughtful person will not only recognize the active involvement of Christ in the events of her life, but will also pause and ask about the best possible way to honour Him in some practical ways. Satan has always wanted to harm you. His plans are to Steal, Kill and Destroy. Christ did more than “your Mordecai”. “Christ has always played an incredibly major role, through his providence, in the drama of your life’s experience.” Christ has: Preserved, Protected, Provided, Prospered and Promoted you. Christ deserves more honour and recognition than “your Mordecai” therefore you must: 1) Bless Him at all times. 2) Praise, pray, and pay your dues. 3) Give thanks to Him. 4) Trust, acknowledge, fear, and honour Him.
Fight Amnesia
Sun, Oct 07, 2018
55:13
Amnesia is the inability to recall information or events from the past. We tend to try and forget the bad things that we have experienced or heard about. God on the other hand commanded Moses and the Israelite's to remember their season in Egypt. Why would God want us to remember the difficult times in our lives? God wants you to remember the day you came OUT of Egypt. Both God and the devil want you to remember your past, the devil wants you to remember the life when you were IN a situation to make you become stressed and depressed. But God wants you to remember the time HE brought you OUT. God wasn't telling the children of Israel to remember the time they suffered in Egypt but how He brought them out. You overcome the devil through: a). The blood of the Lamb. b) The Word of your testimony. The devil knows that he can't change the work of Calvary but he can attack the word of your testimony. The devil wants to steal your testimony so that you will not overcome in future similar challenges. There are certain scars you can't afford to hide as they are your signs of victory. How can you bless the Lord at all times? You need to make a choice to bless the Lord no matter what you go through. We are like God, life and death lies in our tongue, you create your world through the words you say. Always remember that when God has seen you through one dark season, He is able to do it again and again. - You need to change your perspective on the scars you are carrying. They are evidence to show what God has taken you through. In everything you do, you need to fight amnesia and remember what God has taken you out from.
Take the Risk to Try Again

The enemy has not defeated you, for the weapons created by creation cannot defeat the creator. Defeat causes you to settle in Haran instead of Canan. People settle for second best because of: 1) Fear - when fear comes have the courage to fight. Courage is not the absence of fear but mastering fear. 2) Fatigue - physically and mentally. 3) Failed results - failing does not make you a failure, when you fail try again. 4) Faulty confidence - do not lower your expectations. Doubt your doubts and not God. When you settle where you are not suppose to settle your brain embraces abnormality as normal. To get to where God is taking you, you have to leave things that are holding you back and be obedient to Him.
