“Because of your promise and as your own heart dictates, you have done all these astounding things to make your servant know and understand.”                    

– 2 Samuel 7:21 (AMP)



 -Interact about our common future                                                                               

-Ignite passion in the people of God                                                                          

-Invite participation in Kingdom advancement



Seeking souls, the world over, stand to benefit in unprecedented ways from astounding things God will do throughout 2024.



In the face of dangerous and difficult days ahead, God makes three bold promises to those of His people who will seek him.                                                                                                           

1. To bring them into a spacious place where they will breathe freely.                                                                               

2. To arm them with the needed strength to advance against any enemy.                                  

3. To arm them with strategies to scale seemingly unscalable challenges.



Three axes:                                                                                                                   

1. Build a Christocentric community  

(the placing of Christ at the centre of one’s thoughts, actions, or beliefs)

2. Build a Koinonia saturated community                                                              

(the entering into a shared community that involves deep, close-knit participation among its people)

3. Build an Euangelion intense community                                                                   

This is an attempt to address a threefold crisis:

a. A lack of gospel confidence  

b. A lack of gospel clarity  

c. A lack of gospel community)                                

Ps. 18:6; Acts 18:9, 10; Rom. 1:16, 17; Gal. 4:19; Matt. 22:37-39; 28:18-20

God wants to be known and to be made known.



Bring the mortgage significantly down                                                                 

Build strategic bridges



 2 Samuel 7:22a (MSG)

LUKE 12 :1, 12-22

It is foolish to store up material possessions with no regard for God. Since possessions without an eternal perspective are prone to corrupt attitudes, priorities and motives.


1. Problem with possessions

a. Possessions tend to possess their possessor.




b. Possessions tend to overvalue themselves

2. Purpose of Possessions

Possessions should be used to express, in its manyfold aspects, our love for God.

My worth is in who I am, not in what I have.

My wealth is both a divine blessing and a God-given responsibility.

My wisdom is demonstrated in the pursuit of worthy causes.

1 Chronicles 29:14; Proverbs 3:9,10; 11:25; Acts 20:35; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15: 1 Timothy 6:17-19

 2. Reveal the importance of categories of relationship, presence and community of solidarity                                                                                  

Inclusion is a mark of blessing                                                                                          

Identification with God and his people is also a mark of blessing

God led him in the middle of nowhere to teach him that a nobody with God will achieve more than a somebody without God.

Exodus 4:18-23; Deuteronomy 34:5-7; 2 Corinthians 3:13; Hebrews 11:24-26

Three Timeless Lessons

  1. It takes adequate preparation to handle purpose properly.
  2. It takes adequate preparation to handle power properly.
  3. It takes adequate preparation to handle people properly.




HEBREWS 6:13-15 (NIV); Genesis 22:15-18

God keeps His word and blesses those who patiently and perseveringly wait on Him, like Abraham.

1. God have His word

  • Many descendants
  • Mighty descendants
  • Major redemption
  • Great commandment
  • Great commission

Pr. 14:28 (ESV); Zech. 12:8-11; Rom. 4:16; Gal. 3:16; Matt. 22:34-40; 28:18-20  


2. Abraham waited on God

a. Abraham knew that God was both sovereign and honest.

b. Abraham knew that it pays to wait patiently and perseveringly on God

Patience: high level of staying power in the face of life’s tests, trials, and tribulations (Makrothumia: Insight, love, people).

1 Sam. 1:1-7; Job 2:7-10; Psalm 115:1-3 (NLT); Eccl. 7:8; 1 Cor. 13:4; Gal. 6:8, 9                                                     

Perseverance: commitment to one’s goal regardless of the length of time and the vicissitudes of the journey (Hupomone: Foresight, hope, circumstances).

Proverbs 4:25-27; Romans 12:12; 1 Corinthians 15:58 (NLT); Hebrews 12:1, 2 (NLT)


3. God kept His word

  “Many promises are fruitless, fragile, and frustrating.” – Phillip Paschal  

  • He is not erratic
  • He is not a liar
  • He is not unjust

Proverbs 29:4; Hosea 6:4; Num. 23:19 (NLT); Hebrews 6:10; 2 Cor. 1:19, 20 (NLT)



Acts 20:13-16 (NIV)

Paul understood that the only way to successfully maintain his spiritual balance and stability was to remain rooted in the old centre while reaching out into new territories.

1. Paul reached out into new territories          

  • Teaching
  • Preaching
  • Evangelizing

Acts 1:8; 9:10-15; 16:12-15

2. Paul remained rooted in the old centre      

  • Convocation
  • Commemoration
  • Communion

Leviticus 23:37-39; Acts 2:1, 5, 42; Colossians 2:6, 7; Hebrews 10:19-25; 12:12-15


Genesis 3:1-6

“There is some psychological significance to the midway point of the year as a logical opportunity to take stock.”

- The Guardian

“The devil is not exceptional at getting us, he is persistent, and we are complacent.”

- Pastor Olivier Tshala

The Devil has not changed his methods, his only play is to convince us that:

  1. God is not, in fact, good or
  2. that God does not keep his promises.

Once he has done this, we start a process of self-sabotage.


1. God is Good

Genesis 1:28 (ESV)

Matthew 7:11 (ESV)

2. God is Consistent

Hebrews 13:8 (ESV)

Malachi 3:6 (ESV)


David’s Promise

1 Samuel 16:13 – Anointed

2 Samuel 5:3 – Becoming King

13 years between his anointing (The promise) and becoming King (Its fulfilment).

1. Conditional Promises

Romans 8:28

2. Unconditional Promises

Genesis 9:11

Proverbs 10:11

God uses the gap between the promise and its fulfilment to prepare us to handle the lived experience of the promise.






Genesis 12:7-8; 13:18; 22:7-8

Abraham was not a perfect man, but the overall orientation of his life was towards God rather than some earthly prosperity.


1. Abraham’s motives to building Altars

  • God made a promise to Abraham
  • God moved Abraham to a new place
  • God requested a sacrifice from Abraham

Deuteronomy 27:4-6; Isaiah 65:3


2. Requirement of building an Altar

  • Requires preparation
  • Requires God
  • Requires effort

Hebrews 13:9-10

3. Abraham perennial worship

  • Through hopelessness
  • Through uncertainty
  • Through instability

A true worshipper of God does so because of who God is, not what he has or hasn’t done. Worship is a physical expression of our internal disposition towards God.


Abraham through his imperfections, perennially worshipped, obeyed & believed God. He never held on to anything so closely that God could not have it and as a result God gave him all he needed and more because he was a worshipper that when blessed would be a blessing.



Luke 1:26-38 (NLT)

The presence of God in the lives of his people opens the possibility for strange blessings.

1. Requirement

  • A blessing based on the Favour of God (Receive & respond)
  •  A blessing by the Salvation of God (Deliverance, rescue, victory, wonders)
  • A blessing through the Power of God

Hebrews 12:15a (NLT); 1 Corinthians 15:10a; Genesis 50:19, 20; Exodus 14:13, 14; Zechariah 4:6

2. Response

  • Humble trust
  • Obedient service

Romans 4:17-24; Hebrews 11:11, 12; 1 Corinthians 15:10b  



Psalm 85:1-13

  1. Meaning of Revival

“Making alive again those who have been alive but have fallen into what is call a cold or dead state.” LAIN MURRAY

  • An outpouring of the Holy Spirit
  • Face-to-face with God

The revival will be a result of what was not working.

You must first be made alive by the Spirit of God before revival happens.

2.  Requirements of great revival

  • Sincere repentance

Psalm 85:1-3 (MSG)

  • Submitting life to God’s Authority.

Psalm 85:4-8(NLT)

  • Significant action

Psalm 85:10-13 (NLT)



Genesis 23 (MSG)

“When we strive to live a godly life, people will notice.”

Abraham’s 3D life


1. The existence of God

  • His position
  • His promises

Abraham demonstrated by his words, works, and way of thinking that he has encountered the Holy One.

2. The existence of Circumstances

  • Pain
  • Providence

“The folly of profiting at other’s expense must be shunned at all cost.”


3. The existence of others

  • People
  • Problems





GENESIS 49:25, 26 (NLT)

1. The Cause of such blessing

When purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable”- Myles Munroe

Acts 9:10-20

The story of the risen Saviour, the rising star, and the reluctant servant, teaches us that we need to be open to reaching out to anyone the Lord directs us to regardless of how they might seem “beyond reach”



  • Project
  • Plan
  • Power

“Knowing that God knows better makes obedience easy to practice.”

Luke 4:18-19; Matthew 16:18, 19; 2Corinthians 4:7; Acts 1:8; Mark 16:19, 20; Isaiah 46:9-10



  • Paradox (Persecution & Purity)

“Elitism as a religious posture can easily lead to misguided zeal.”

  • Potential (Chosen instrument)

1Timothy 1:12, 13; 1Corinthians 15:9-11; Philippians 3:4-9


  • Perception(attentiveness, readiness, responsiveness)
  • Prejudice(social differences, social identity, stereotypes)
  • Perspective (Grace of God, Greatness of God’s work)

“Answering to divine calls we get really matters.”

Job 33:14; Isaiah 30:21; Isaiah 6:8; Acts 10:34, 35




Genesis 15:1-6

“When God finds a man who believes, He can do wonders!”

1. Foundational Aspects of Believing in God

  • Trust God’s capability.

Daniel 3:17

  • Trust God’s faithfulness

Hebrews 10:23; 1 Thessalonians 5:24

2. Practical Aspects of Sustaining the Belief

Romans 4:19

  • Acknowledge reality

Believing God doesn’t mean denying the facts, it means elevating the truth above facts.

Matthew 15:27

  • Develop a steadfast resolve

When we believe in God, we learn to believe in God!

  • Build on Each Belief

As we witness God's faithfulness in certain areas of our lives, our capacity to believe Him for bigger things grows. Every act of faith expands our horizon of belief.



2 Samuel 7:1-3

“God’s wonderful works and thoughts toward us are too many to count. The right thing to do is not to let His grace go to waste. To be fair to Him, our attitude and action must be right.”

1. God’s gift of rest to David
