YOUR DAY OF MERCY COMETH

I decree into your life today Wednesday 25th July, 2018 being a day of mercy that ; Because of the mercy of God will locate you today, the power that lifted the heaven above the earth without pillars shall lift you up to the greater height of your life.I pray that the bridge linking you with failure, disgrace, shame and poverty is destroyed by mercy today.

The high and thick fence isolating you from your helpers shall be destroyed today by the mercy of God. Mercy will relocate you today from a debtor, to become a creditor, from single to married, from employee to employer, from failure to success and from weakness to strength. I pray that every issue that makes you sad shall begin to vanish and events that will make you happy will begin to emerge by the mercy of God Almighty in Jesus name. Amen.

Psalms 102:1-11 says, “ Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.  Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily. 3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth. My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread. By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.  I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert. I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me. For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping, Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down. My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.”

"Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily"
(Psalms 102:2). A common inscription in most Christian homes had a liner about Jesus Christ, the unseen GUEST. Indeed, He is the silent Watcher in the home. He knows about the storm and challenges in the family.

Nothing escapes Him. And He is not unfamiliar with the devil’s antics.The Psalmist in the text knew where to turn to as he absorbed the gale of woes that came upon him. He did not have to consult an oracle of the ungodly. Nor did he panic in surrender to fate. He also did not have to curse God or rail on destiny. He did not lay any blame on some ancestral or generational curse.

Instead of all these unhelpful approaches, he did a realistic appraisal of his situation and discovered the enormity of his condition. Although it was not a helpless situation, he knew it was clearly beyond what he or mortal man could take care of. He needed to go to the Higher Authority, a Supernatural Force namely Jehovah God of Israel. Having identified where succour and solution could be accessed, he presented his case to God.

He hid nothing from Him. The faithful God does not reject those who heed His call. He says in Isaiah 45:22: "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else". When you are born again and focus on heaven, you will not be trapped in the snare of the devil to frighten you with short-lived challenges of life. No matter how boisterous the wind and waves, know that your boat cannot sink. Just rest on Jesus’ unfailing promise.

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life (1 John 5:11-12). Eternal life is the nature of God, and the Bible says this life is in Christ Jesus. This is the life Jesus referred to when He said, “For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself” (John 5:26). Jesus had that life, which He received from the Father. It’s translated “eternal life” in English because of the limitation of the English language; this is the “God-life” or “the God-kind of life.”

There’s the animal life; there’s the plant life; there’s the human life, and then there’s the God-life: the life of Deity. Anyone who has the Son of God, has this life, and anyone who doesn’t have the Son of God doesn’t have eternal life. That’s what we read in our opening scripture.

It doesn’t matter that someone is your sibling, your father, mother, friend, co-worker or classmate; if they don’t have the Son of God, they don’t have eternal life, and that’s serious trouble. It means they’re subject to the darkness and depravities of this world; they’re under the dominion of spiritual death. It’s the reason we preach, and it’s the reason you must do everything possible to ensure your loved ones receive eternal life which is in Christ Jesus.

The Bible says, “…the gift of God is eternal life...” (Romans 6:23); that gift is only available in Jesus Christ. He came that we may have life to the full (John 10:10 AMP). The vibrant, glorious, transcendent life of God in its fullness is what Jesus brought; it’s no ordinary life; and if you believe in Him, that’s what you’ve received into your spirit. You don’t have to “feel” it in your body first to be conscious that you have eternal life; it’s in your spirit.

Your consciousness of your divine nature and origin is so important. Recall the words of the Apostle John: “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life” (1 John 5:13).

2 Peter 1:3-4 ; According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: [4] Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

1 John 5:11-12 says , And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. [12] He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

Everything we’ve covered thus far forms the non-negotiable foundation for prayer. The moment prayer becomes anything other than a conversation with God, we’ve made it into something it’s not. But what do you say when you’re talking to God?

This question is all-important. One answer is that we can say anything to God. He’s listening, and he cares. It doesn’t matter how trivial, difficult, outraged, or perplexed your prayers are: God cares about what you care about. And a whole lot more. So if you care about other people, you should expect those people to come up in your conversations with God.

There is a statement that pops up a few times in the New Testament: “If you ask anything in [Jesus’] name, [the Father] will give it to you.” How’s that for a blank check? But looking at the context of just one of these statements will give some insight into what Jesus wants us to be praying for.

In John 15, Jesus tells us that in remaining connected to him, we find life. And we find his life flowing through us to others (a concept he refers to as “bearing fruit”). When he tells us that God will grant our every request, he adds “so that you will love one another” (v. 17). In other words, praying for people is a form of love. Jesus’ love flows through you as your love for other people leads you to pray for them. This is what we mean by “intercessory prayer.” It’s a sign of health in your conversations with God when you find yourself naturally talking to God about more and more aspects of your life. If you care about it, God wants to hear about it.

Psalm 1:3  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. ''that bringeth forth his fruit in his season''

Here if you carefully look at the word it says the tree brings forth his fruit in his season. It also says that ''it brings forth'' and it does not say ''it may bring forth'. Which means 1. Each tree has its own season. 2. The tree knows the season in which it needs to bear the fruit.

Today many of us are there in the right season but we are unable to bear the fruit. When it is time to get a Job we do not get it. When it is time for marriage it delays. When it is time to get pregnant the womb is empty. When it is time to get education we are unable to go to school because of poverty etc. Yes we can see many examples.

If you read Joh 15:4 it says  "Abide in me, and I will abide in you. Just as the branch cannot produce fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. If you think things are delaying in your life and if you are murmuring about it then check your relationship with the word of God. Repent and surrender then you will see the glory of god.

It says in Isa 55:11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

“The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives” (Deuteronomy 14:23 TLB). Whatever you want God to bless, you have to put him first in. So if you want God to bless your finances, you have to put him first in your money. This is the principle of tithing: You give the first 10 percent of your income back to God.

Here are four verses that explain the promise, the purpose, the place, and the day for tithing.

First, Proverbs 3:9-10 gives the promise about tithing: “Honor the Lord by giving him the first part of all your income, and he will fill your barns with wheat and barley and overflow your wine vats with the finest wines” (TLB). God says that if you honor him with the first part of your income, he will bless you financially.

Why does God tell us to tithe? Deuteronomy 14:23 says, “The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives” (TLB). God doesn’t need your money, but he wants what it represents: your heart. He wants you to trust him.

Where should you tithe? Do you tithe to United Way? Or do you tithe to your brother who’s been out of work for three years? No. That’s charity. Tithing is an act of worship. It goes to God.

Malachi 3:10 says, “‘Bring to the storehouse a full tenth of what you earn . . . Test me in this,’ says the Lord All-Powerful. ‘I will open the windows of heaven for you and pour out all the blessings you need’” (NCV). The storehouse is the temple or the place where you worship God.

When are you supposed to tithe? You do it on the day you worship. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 16:2, “On every Lord’s Day each of you should put aside something from what you have earned during the week, and use it for this offering. The amount depends on how much the Lord has helped you earn” (TLB). When you give to God on the first day of the week, the first part of your day, and the first part of your money, you’re declaring, “You’re really number one in my life.”

Notice that the verse says to “put aside.” You’ve got to plan this! Tithing should not be an impulsive thing. You’ve got to plan for it so that you are honoring God’s plan and purpose for tithing. Then you can watch how God blesses and uses you and honors his promise in your life. You need life in you and in all you do. Life is situated only in Jesus.

Accept Jesus today. Jesus loves you.

CONCEPT OF DISCIPLES

WHO IS A DISCIPLE?
         A disciple is someone who learns from his master. He is a follower that is being led by a leader. After learning from his master, he goes out to practise what his master had taught him.  

IMPORTANCE OF THE CALLED DISCIPLES TO JESUS MINISTRY. MATT. 28: 19-20; MK. 16: 15-19
       Since Jesus knew that His presence and ministry here on earth were for a short period of time, He chose and trained His disciples to carry on His work(ministry) of teaching, preaching and healing. The primary aim of Jesus chosen of the disciples was to spread the Gospel and build up the body of Christians who would emerge after His departure.
       Before His ascension to heaven, the Lord gave them the Great Commission to go and make disciples of all nations. Baptising them in the the of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that the Lord (Jesus) had commanded them. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
      Christ also promised signs that will accompany believers, They will speak in new tongues, pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly things, it will not harm them. They will lay their hands on the sick and they will recover.

CALL OF THE DISCIPLES AND THEIR RESPONSES. MATT. 4: 18-25; 9: 9, 13; 10: 1-4;
A disciple is a pupil, student or follower who receives instructions from his teacher. The first four disciples were Peter and his brother, Andrew; and the two brothers, James and John.
According to Matthew and Mark, one day, as Jesus was walking along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Peter and Andrew casting their net into the sea, for they were fishermen. Jesus called them to be his disciples saying: “follow me, and l will make you fishers of men.” And immediately, they followed Jesus. A few meters away from where Jesus called Peter and Andrew, Jesus met the two brothers, James and John, the sons of Zebedee. They were with their father mending their broken nets. Jesus called them and immediately, they left their father and followed him.
The gospel of Luke gives another account of how Jesus called the first four disciples. Jesus met Peter, Andrew, James and John by the Sea of Galilee. They had just returned from fishing all night without making any catch. Jesus told Peter to go and fish. Peter said they had toiled all night without any fish, but they would try again at his word. They had a great catch of fish. When Peter, Andrew, James and John had brought in all the fish, they left everything and followed Jesus.
   
JESUS CALLS THE TWELVE DISCIPLES/APOSTLES: MK 3: 13-19
Apart from the first four disciples, Jesus called Matthew or Levi, a tax collector to be his disciple and he did. The Gospel of John also tells us of the call of Philip. Many other people also followed Jesus though he had not called them. When Jesus saw that there were many people who were prepared to sacrifice everything to follow him in order to learn from him, he decided to select twelve of them to be his disciples.
The day before Jesus selected the twelve disciples; he left everybody and went to a quiet place. There he prayed all night to God to help him select the right men. Jesus wanted honest, faithful and loyal disciples who would devote all their lives to the service of God. God listened to Jesus prayers and in the morning he called all the people together and selected twelve disciples from among them. The disciples were:
  1. Simon Peter
  2. Andrew
  3. James and
  4. John the sons of Zebedee
  5. Philip
  6. Bartholomew
  7. Matthew
  8. Thomas
  9. James the son of Alpheus
  10. Simon the Zealot
  11. Thaddeus
  12. Judas Iscariot.
The Disciples Responses To Their Call To Discipleship
From the account of the call of the first five disciples, they responsed promptly to the call of Christ to them.
Significant points and lessons
The folowing lessons could be drawn from the responses of the disciples to the call of Christ.
1.  Discipleship requires prompt response.
2.  Discipleship requires self-denial and abondonment of earthly glory.
3.  Discipleship requires humility and selfless service.
4.  Any person could be called, rich or poor. Willingness to serve is more important than position.
5.  The repentance of sinners is paramount in the ministry of Jesus.

THE PRACTICAL ANALYSIS OF FAITH


FACTS ON FAITH
[1.] The welfare of the just on earth is anchored on his faith
[ 2.] The quality of the life of the just on earth is anchored on his faith
[ 3.]The fate of the just on earth is anchored on his faith
[ 4.] The future of the just on earth is anchored on his faith
[ 5.] The longevity of the just on earth is anchored on his faith

WHY FAITH DETERMINES THE LIFE OF THE JUST
Faith in God is the taproot that draws on the life of God (Hab. 2:4; Gal. 3:11; John 10:10; Rom. 1:17; Heb. 10:38; 11:30-35). The life of God tapped by faith is the abundant life; it is indestructible, excitable and ‘sickless’ life. Faith in God is a supernatural wire that transmits Divine life from Divinity to humanity. Faith in God draws on the unbeatable strength of God (Acts 3:16; Rom. 4:20; Prov. 24:10; 1Cor. 16:13; Heb. 11:11). Strength is key to victory in battle (Prov. 24:10). The bankruptcy of faith is the shortage of strength
The strength of your spirit in the physical is reflective in the spirit. Faith is the capsule that transmits Divine strength; when you swallow faith, you gather strength. When your strength increases, your victory multiplies. 

Faith in God makes our victory to be won before our battles arrive (1Tim. 6:12; 1John 5:4; 4:4). Faith in God makes us to fight battles whose outcomes were predetermined in our favour. Your faith keeps you in the victory mode and keeps the enemy in the defeat mode. Faith in God makes you to win battles without firing a shot. Faith in God fortifies and shields our lives (and those of our loved ones) against the arrows and missiles of the enemy (Eph. 6:16; John 10:18; Job 22:29; 1:10; Ps. 91:1-4). Faith prevents our existence in vulnerability. Faith in God prevents people from easy ‘wastability’.Faith in God is key to wholeness in life (Matt. 9:22; Mark 10:52; Matt. 15:28; Mark 5:34). This is a situation of nothing missing, nothing lacking and nothing wanting! The devil cannot take anything from you because your faith makes you complete. Faith is key to recovery and restoration

HOW TO TAP INTO THE PRESERVATION POWER OF FAITH
 Know what to believe (Rom. 10:8; Ps. 105:14-15; 1Pet. 3:13; Heb. 11:1; Rom. 10:17; Heb. 2:9). The Word of God is a basis of faith. Faith has substance; it is not blind belief (Heb. 11:1). Believe what you know (2Cor. 4:13; Heb. 11:6). Take the Word of God personally! Don’t make it look as if God was speaking generally. Get to the point of persuasion beyond dissuasion which is not subject to negotiation!This is conviction beyond confusion. Think what you believe (Prov. 23:7a; Eph. 3:20). Be rugged in insight, conviction and thought! Dwell on your belief, don’t dwell on your fear

Faith is a mindset; you can’t believe for life an dwell on death or believe on victory and dwell on defeat! Turn scripture into picture, it will cause you to venture in order to capture the future you must feature in! Declare what you believe (2Cor. 4:13; Num. 14:28; Rom. 10:8-10; Isa. 44:26). Faith is confirmed by speech. If it is strong enough in your heart, it will escape through your mouth without notice!What is not declared is not clear; if it is clear, it will be declared! If you declare it, God will clear it!
Your conviction is confirmed by your declaration

What is in the heart is useless until the mouth says it! You need some agbero anointing to deal with agbero devils!Act what you believe (Mark 2:4-5). Action is the switch of power in the journey of faith. Refuse to make the devil feel like he got your attention! Act in line with what you believe (Mark 2:4-5). Action from man is a magnet for manifestation from God. Match your actions with your words and you will see the wonders of God

Celebrate what you believe (Ps. 56:4, 10; 106:12; 2Chron. 20:22-23; Rom. 4:20). Celebrate the promises of God before they turn into products. Celebrate the faithfulness of God Look up and dress up! God will turn into reality those things that you are doing by faith! Never ever give the enemy a sense of victory, let the bastard devil know that he has never won a battle against you and as long as God is on the throne, he will never win!

PRAYER TIME 
Father, thank You for Your goodness and mercy over my life. Thank You for the power of faith for my life. Father, I receive the grace to know what to believe, to believe what I know, to think what I believe, to declare what I believe, to act what I believe and to celebrate what I believe. I receive the grace to live by faith in Jesus’ Name.

PROPHETIC CLAIMS
1. A mega restoration following a drastic encounter that will produce restorations shall happen to you!
2. You are in your season of answers! Where there have been questions and perplexities you are released into answers!. There 3. There is end to frustration and cancellation of every enemy orchestration in your life right now
4. Today, there is the uncovering, the unveiling and the revelation of enemy secrets and strategiesa round your life and it will come with solutions

DECLARATIONS:

COMPREHENSIVE NOTE ON THE EFFECTS OF SMOKING

                         


God detests smokers. Smoke is visible vapor/vapour, gases, and fine particles given off by burning or smoldering material. Smoking cigarettes kills more than alcohol, car accidents, HIV, guns, and illegal drugs combined. It can damage nearly every organ in the body, including the lungs, heart, blood vessels, reproductive organs, mouth, skin, eyes, and bones. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women, and is one of the hardest cancers to treat. Not only does smoking increase the risk for lung cancer, it’s also a risk factor for cancers of the: { Mouth, Larynx (voice box), Pharynx (throat), Esophagus (swallowing tube), Kidney, Cervix, Liver, Bladder, Pancreas, Stomach, Colon/rectum, Myeloid leukemia }

Cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and spit and other types of smokeless tobacco all cause cancer. There is no safe way to use tobacco. Inhaling affect the risk of cancer. Wherever smoke touches living cells, it does harm. Even smokers who don’t inhale are breathing in large amounts of smoke that comes from their mouths and the lit end of the cigarette, cigar, or pipe. They are at risk for lung cancer and other diseases caused by secondhand smoke. Smoking damages the airways and small air sacs in your lungs. This damage starts early in smokers, and lung function continues to worsen as long as the person smokes. Still, it may take years for the problem to become noticeable enough for lung disease to be diagnosed.

Smoking makes pneumonia and asthma worse. It also causes many other lung diseases that can be nearly as bad as lung cancer. COPD meaning Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, this is the name for long-term lung disease which includes both chronic bronchitis and emphysema. The risk of COPD goes up the more you smoke and the longer you smoke. It gets worse over time, and there is no cure. COPD is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Smoking is by far the most common cause of COPD. More women die from COPD than men.

Noises in the chest (such as wheezing, rattling, or whistling), shortness of breath during activity, and coughing up mucus (phlegm) are some of the early signs of COPD. Over time, COPD can make it hard to breathe even at rest. The late stage is one of the most miserable of all illnesses. It makes people gasp for breath and feel as if they are drowning. Chronic bronchitis is a type of COPD. It’s a disease where the airways make too much mucus, forcing the person to cough it out. It’s a common problem for smokers. The airways become inflamed (swollen) and the cough becomes chronic (long-lasting). The symptoms can get better at times, but the cough keeps coming back. Over time, the airways get blocked by scar tissue and mucus, which can lead to bad lung infections (pneumonia).

There’s no cure for chronic bronchitis, but quitting smoking can help keep symptoms under control. Quitting smoking also helps keep the damage from getting worse.Emphysema. Emphysema is the other type of COPD. It slowly destroys a person’s ability to breathe. Normally, the lungs contain millions of tiny sacs that help oxygen get into the blood. In emphysema, the walls between the sacs break down and create larger but fewer sacs. This lowers the amount of oxygen reaching the blood. Over time, these sacs can break down to the point where a person with emphysema must work very hard to get enough air, even when at rest. People with emphysema are at risk for many other problems linked to weak lung function, including pneumonia. In later stages of the disease, patients can only breathe comfortably with oxygen. Emphysema cannot be cured or reversed, but it can be treated and slowed down if the person stops smoking. Why do smokers have “smoker’s cough?” Tobacco smoke has many chemicals and particles that irritate the airways and lungs. When a smoker inhales these substances, the body tries to get rid of them by making mucus and coughing.

The early morning smoker’s cough happens for many reasons. Normally, tiny hair-like structures (called cilia) in the airways help sweep harmful material out of the lungs. But tobacco smoke slows the sweeping action, so some of the particles in the smoke stay in the lungs and mucus stays in the airways. While a smoker sleeps (and doesn’t smoke), some cilia recover and start working again. After waking up, the smoker coughs because the lungs are trying to clear away the irritants and mucus that built up from the day before. So-called “smoker’s cough” can be an early sign of COPD.

Smoking tobacco damages your heart and blood vessels (cardiovascular system), increasing your risk of heart disease and stroke. It’s a major cause of coronary heart disease, which can lead to a heart attack. Smoking causes high blood pressure, lowers your ability to exercise, and makes your blood more likely to clot. It also decreases HDL (good) cholesterol levels in the blood. Smoking is a major risk factor for peripheral arterial disease (PAD). In PAD, plaque builds up in the arteries that carry blood to the head, organs, and limbs. This increases your risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.

Smoking can cause or worsen poor blood flow to the arms and legs. (This is called peripheral vascular disease or PVD). This can cause pain in the legs when walking, and may lead to open sores that don’t heal. Surgery to improve the blood flow often fails in people who keep smoking. This is why many doctors who operate on blood vessels (vascular surgeons) won’t do certain operations on patients with PVD unless they stop smoking. Tobacco use can damage a woman’s reproductive health. Women who smoke are more likely to have trouble getting pregnant. When they are pregnant they also tend to have problems that can hurt both mother and baby, for instance:

Smokers are more likely to have an ectopic pregnancy (where the embryo implants outside the uterus), which can threaten the mother’s life. Smokers are also more likely to have early membrane ruptures and placentas that separate from the uterus too early. Serious bleeding, early delivery (premature birth), and emergency Caesarean section (C-section) may result from these problems. Smokers are more likely to have miscarriages, stillbirths, babies with cleft lip or palate, and low birth-weight babies. Smoking during pregnancy has also been linked to a higher risk of birth defects and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)

Women who smoke tend to be younger at the start of menopause than non-smokers and may have more unpleasant symptoms while going through menopause. Smoking damages the arteries, and blood flow is a key part of male erections. Male smokers have a higher risk of sexual impotence (erectile dysfunction) the more they smoke and the longer they smoke. At least one study has also linked cigar smoking to sexual impotence in men.Smoking can also affect sperm (which reduces fertility) and increase the risk for miscarriage and birth defects. 

Not all of the health problems related to smoking result in deaths. Smoking affects a smoker’s health in many ways, harming nearly every organ of the body and causing many diseases. Here are a few examples of other ways smoking tobacco affects your health: { Increased risk of gum disease and tooth loss, wounds taking longer to heal, decreased immune system function, increased risk of type 2 diabetes, Decreased sense of smell and taste, Premature aging of the skin, Bad breath and stained teeth, Increased risk for cataracts (clouding of the lenses of the eyes), Lower bone density (thinner bones), which means a higher risk for broken bones, including hip fracture, Higher risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis, Increased risk for age-related macular degeneration, which can cause blindness, Increased risk of peptic ulcers.

Many of the health problems linked to smoking can steal away a person’s quality of life long before death. Smoking-related illness can make it harder for a person to breathe, get around, work, or play. Quitting smoking, especially at younger ages, can reduce smoking-related disability.Smoking causes serious health problems in children and teens. The most serious is nicotine addiction, which leads to long-term tobacco use. Over time, smokers then develop the health problems discussed above, and often at younger ages.

Children and teens who smoke regularly tend to have more health problems than kids who don’t, such as: Coughing spells , shortness of breath, even when not exercising, wheezing or gasping, more frequent headaches, increased phlegm (mucus), respiratory illnesses that are worse and happen more often, worse cold and flu symptoms, reduced physical fitness, poor lung growth and function, which increases COPD risk.

It has shown that teen tobacco users are more likely to use alcohol and illegal drugs than are non-users. Cigarette smokers are also more likely to get into fights, carry weapons, attempt suicide, suffer from mental health problems such as depression, and engage in high-risk sexual behaviors. This doesn’t necessarily mean that tobacco use caused these behaviors, but they’re more common in teens who use tobacco.

Stop smoking today! It kills gradually. That's why they say smokers are liable to die young.

THE SERMON GENERAL


INTRODUCTION
Here comes THE SERMON GENERAL !  It is loaded with inspiration,  motivation and revelation.  It comprises of thirteen great themes.  I do hope you find it enjoyable.  God bless you.

#1: Believe in God

KEY VERSE : John 11:40

       "Jesus said into her,said I not unto thee,that,if thou wouldest believe,thou shouldest see the glory of God?."

BIBLE PASSAGE - Mark 16:16

    "He that believeth and his Baptized shall be saved;but he that believeth not shall be damned."

CONTENT 1: 
To believe in God means giving God totally control over someone's life or over a particular issue.And as a believer we need not to believe in God only we also  need to demonstrate our believe in God.

When you believe in God,it means you have master key in your hand,because in the book of mark 16-18 the Scripture made us to understand what and the length we can reach as a believer,"in HIS name we shall cast out devils, we shall take up serpent,even when you drink deadly thing it shall not hurt us".You need to believe in God for whatsoever you are in need of.

Even the bible established it in the book of mark 11:24 that,whatever you ask in prayer,if you believe you  receive,you will receive it.Even the woman with the issue of blood believed and she demonstrated her believe in Jesus and she was healed.Our memory verse says if you believe you will see the glory of God.It is through believe that you received the blessings of God.Abraham believe in God God told him to go out of his father's house and he left and God made him father of the nations.

May be you have been praying,for the fruit of the womb,admission,healing,breakthrough, deliverance,prosperity and employment etc what is it do you really want God to do for you,that you have given up on hope,All the testimonies above is enough for you to believe that God is capable to do it in your life,may be you have been praying and you have been having doubt in your heart.

Believe that God will do it,its just matter of time,God work with time don't let your believe fade away and at appointed time  it come to realm of physical,The Lord as done it in the realm of the spirit,it's a matter of time it will come through in the realm of physical .it's when you have alternative,that you make God feel as if you are telling God that,HE is not capable of doing it,you most surrender all to God and HE will do it for you.

If you have in one way or the other depend on man or doubt God,ask God to forgive you and tell HIM that,HE is the only one that can settle your case,and I prayer as many way you are looking up to God for a certain something,may the Lord visit you and give you testimonies in Jesus name.

#2: The lost sheep 

KEY VERSE : Luke 15:10
     "Likewise,i say unto you,there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth."

BIBLE PASSAGE-Luke 15:6

    "And when he cometh home,he calleth together his friends and neighbours,saying unto them,Rejoice with me;for I have found my sheep which was lost."

CONTENT 2
A sheep means a soul to God, _we_ human being are the sheeps of the pasture of the Almighty God,that is why the Scripture says HE shall give charge to HIS angels over us to keep us in our ways.This shows how important we are to God.A lost sheep is the person how   has backlide or the person how hasn't given his or her life to christ.

King Saul,before he became king  over Israelites,his father asses were lost he looked for them from one city  to another for about three days,to extent of seeking the face of the Lord in prayer through the man of God for direction.I have seen people looking for their lost domestic animals with kind of unrelented effort in morning, under the sun even with the lamp in their hand in the evening until they found it that they  will rest,it shows that the lost sheep is very important to the owner,it breaks the heart of the shepherd when a sheep is lost,that is why the shepherd do look after the sheep but when it get lost the shepherd look for it,so that he can bring it home .

The lost sheep is the unbelievers,the Lord want the lost sheep back,it makes God sad when a sheep in HIS pasture get lost.the prodigal son, when his father saw him coming from afar the father was very happy he received him with joy in his heart.

Do you know how much God want you back home?,HE use HIS blood to pay for your sin so that you you can have another chance to return to HIM,HE  is very much delighted in your coming back home,it makes the angels and the host of heaven rejoice over you.

Your case is not the worst,no matter what you have engaged yourself in ,in the past does not matter what matters is your coming back to God ,come home to the joy of your father in heaven because HE is calling you hear HIS voice and confess HIM as your saviour,devil cannot offer you anything more than hell, repent and be saved.

Every child of God we need to go out there and bring the lost souls to the kingdom of God because some want to come back home  but they don't know how to go about it,as we go out to evangelize may the Lord be with us.

  

#3: God is not bias

KEY VERSE-Genesis 4:4

"And Abel,he also brought of the  firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof.And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering."

BIBLE PASSAGE-Genesis 4:4-5

4:And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering

5: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell."

MESSAGE-Cain offered his sacrifice to God, an unacceptable offering and God  respected it not and Abel  offered his own offering and God respected it.What you sow,is what you shall reap,no man had sown corn and reap wheat,impossibility.

Even you as business man,you shall reap according to your investment.Haman reaped bountifully he dug a gallow for mordecai but he and all his household were threw in the gallow.If Haman had known that,that would be the outcome he wouldn't have dug the gallow he would have done something else that will bring more fame to his name in the Land.

Some come to the presence of God today with the sacrifice of praise in the congregation of people and if God should open the eyes of the people in the gathering after service to see their performances and the reward attached,hmmmm.What happened between Cain and Abel will happening may be in another dimensions.Because God do reward people  according to their service.

God doesn't reward by the,age,position,beauty but according to your work.God is expecting you to sow more seed in different dimension in HIS house more than ever before i.e financially,materially,Soul winning,your commitment to the work of God without murmuring,in praise and worship  and HE is ready to reward you.

And if you are reading this message and you haven't accept Jesus,now is the time for you to accept HIM tomorrow might be too late,everlasting death and gnashing of teeth,pains are the reward prepared for the unbeliver and the danger is unbearable,come unto Jesus and HE will give you rest. 



#3: Faith

KEY VERSE-Hebrew 11:1

     "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,the evidence of things not seen."

BIBLE  PASSAGE- Hebrew 11:6-7

"6:But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
     
     7:By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

CONTENT 3
The word faith is very important to every believer,we need this word so much and also to demonstrate it,our memory verse has explain the word faith as substance of things hoped for,the evidence of things not seen.

Our bible passage had already shown us how important the word faith is,you can not please God without faith.
So it's very important for us to have more faith in God  so that we can please God,if you are able to please God,God will definitely please you in all your ways.When you please God, HE will make all your  enemies be at peace with you.

Through faith we accepted christ,but today some Christians still live and suffering of many things,some are asking but they don't received not that they all asked wrongly but some because the faith is not in them  that they may receive their request from God,that is why some Christian prayed and they are still doubting and afraid.

Some people today whatever their passing through that against the thought of God for their lives is a result of not having faith in God,even when they just need to decree over a situation in faith and receive their testimony doubt is always the hindrances to their blessing.

When the disciples of christ were in the boat with Jesus instead of them to rebuke the storm,fear griped them until Jesus helped them out and rebuked it,God has given you power over every situation,it's now left to you to demonstrate your faith for testimony.

       

4#: The physician is here

KEY VERSE-Mark 1:31

  "And he came and took her by hand,and lifted her up;and immediately the fever left her,and she ministered unto  them."

BIBLE PASSAGE-Mark 1:33-34

33: "And all the city was gathered together at the door. 

34:And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him."

CONTENT 4
It's a great opportunity for us to be in christ,Jesus didn't come to the world to present Himself to us a Lamb that was slain only,but HE presented Himself to also as a Provider,Protector,the Light of the world,Saviour,Deliverer,Physician etc,He proved Himself in the time of the old,whereby he performed different miracles,sign and wonder and even this present time HIS is still proving Himself because Jesus is alive.

Jesus is the great physician because HE has proved it to me and am enjoying HIM,Since I have met christ I don't visit hospital not that I don't fall sick but the Blood and the name of Jesus is so much enough for me.Even some we say.Eeeh physical situation needed physical attention and spiritual situation needed spiritual attention.The question is,who created the physical?, before you can create a certain thing you must have power over it.

Spiritual controls the physical and our Jesus is a spirit being,HE has power over your physical life as well.It is not recorded anywhere in the bible that Jesus gave a certain man a certain medicine to heal them,but HE touched, laid hand and commanded them to go and they obeyed HIM,our bible passage says people in city they were gathered at the door and Jesus healed different kinds of sickness among them.HE lifted up Simon's wife's mother and her fever was gone,so HE has the power to heal you.

Jesus doesn't have limitation.What is the sickness you facing now,are you on  hospital bed,are you financial sick,are you jobless,is your business sick,what is it, name it?,am happy to tell you that Jesus is capable to heal you.Call on HIM and HE will you,but if you haven't given your life to HIM it might not work for you,what you will do is just to surrender your life to HIM and HE will heal you.Say Jesus I believe in you and surrender all to you today save my soul,(Amen).HE has done it before it's your turn to be heal.

   
5#: Tongues

KEY VERSE-Proverbs 18:21

     "Death and life are in the power of tongues: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof."

BIBLE PASSAGE _ Proverbs 18:20-21

    "A mans's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his month;and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.

   21:Death and life are in power of tongues;:and they that love it will eat the fruit thereof."

CONTENT 5
Tongue is one of the organs of the body,it can be sharper than razor blade and it plays  very vital roles  in the body and in the life life of individual depending on how they know how to use it.The usage of the tongues determines the result it produces,if you use the tongue wisely you will see good result and if you use it carelessly the result is regret.The tongue has uplifted some people and also it has also relegated some people,it has put some some people in  a difficult situation because they cannot tame their tongue.

How do you use your tongue?,Some are using the tongue to spread the gospel of our lord Jesus,some use it to bless other people.And I haven some people they can use their tongue to say abusive word to anybody,because they believe that they have the right to use their tongue anyhow they can use it,and it has brought them the result that beyond their power.We should all mind the way we use our tongue,you cannot use your tongue anyhow, some have used that tongue to prophesied some evil language to their own life.

Elijah use his tongue and prophesied and said it will not rain for three years and half,and heaven was shut and Mariam king Saul's daughter used her tongue to abuse king David and she became barren,some are in bondage today as result  of the way they used their tongue .Jabez used his tongue to pray and his life never remained the same,Stop using your tongue anyhow let the productions of your tongue be a blessing to your fellow man and learn how to prophesy good things into your own life,to your country and to any situation at hand in your life.Don't let your tongue be your own enemy of your progress.

This tongue can take someone to hell and it can take someone to heaven,so be careful of the way you talk,is not everything you talk about ,is not every event you respond to,at lease let your tongue relax ,because some people are looking for an excuse to harm their fellow man through their tongue.Stop ungodly talk because it takes someone to hell. So you are the only one who knows how to talk?,it doesn't pay please it's enough go and change your character concerning the way you use you tongue. I pray our tongue will not bring evil on us in Jesus name (AMEN).

        
#6 : A prepared heart

KEY VERSE :Genesis 32:28
    "And he said, thy  name shall be called no more Jacob,but Israel:for as a prince has thou power with God and with men,and hast prevailed." 

BIBLE PASSAGE :Genesis 32:24-28

  "24: And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. 
25: And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. 
26: And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. 
27: And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. 
28: And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed."

CONTENT 6
The heart that is prepared will surely achieve  its goal but a divided heart will surely lost its goal,a prepared heart gives what it takes to achieve its goal but a divided heart always being fed up and distracted by unnecessary things and lost their goal,when a heart is not prepared to receive,such heart do fill up with doubt,complains,distraction when seriousness is needed etc.But when you don't allow any of these,am telling you such heart is prepared and it will surely receive.

Some Christians  do go to church  and pray with their heart unprepared,they only go to church to mark attendance,such people like that they don't normally have testimony,even though if they shared,it might be because of the covenant that God has made with such ministry  they attend.They don't usually have personal encounter with God, these kind of people do hide under the grace of their church.

Jacob's heart was prepared and he didn't allow the fear of Esau to distract him,he had an encounter with an angel until the angel answered his request he didn't let the angel go.Any prayer that you prayed that doesn't touched your heart cannot touch God because your heart is the entrance and the passage that your prayer must pass through to reach God,so if your prayer cannot reach your heart then it cannot reach God.

Can you now see that,if you must received from God,then your heart must be prepared,whenever you are in God's presence you must prepared your heart and your heaven will be opened and when your heaven is open rain of blessings will begin to fall on you.Always prepare your heart because God's blessings is available to those that their heart is prepared.


#7: Uncommon grace

KEY VERSE-Romans 6:1

"What shall we say then? shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?."

BIBLE PASSAGE-Ephesians 2:5-8

 "5:Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 
6: And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 
7: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 
8: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God."

MESSAGE-Uncommon grace provokes uncommon favour,grace is an unmerit favour given from God to man kind which involve;grace of the sun,rain,air,of the season i.e dry and raining season,grace of sleeping and waking up,grace of breathing in and out,grace of speech e.tc,this kind of grace, some certain people who are doing evil and that are yet to give their lives to Jesus can't enjoy more than this level of grace,this grace is for them to sustain their lives till they will have deep repentance and give their life to christ.Many children of God today have experienced this limited grace before given their lives to God.

But when its comes to uncommon grace,it's kind of grace given from God to HIS special people i.e those that in christ.This uncommon grace gives them  access to God's blessings,miracle,signs and wonder deliverance,joy,happiness,riches and wealth and majorly hope of eternal life.It's an uncommon grace that provoked uncommon favour in the life of Esther,because it's not normal to chose a small girl,not only small but a slave to be a Queen in a strange land,but when uncommon grace is at work it pleased the people and the king to make the slave girl,Queen over the whole land.

When this grace is upon your life through salvation that you obtained from christ through faith,it will make you to be preferred among other people and it will seem as if you are the only one who is capable of doing all things,and yes its true you can do all things through Jesus the author and finisher of your faith,HIS is the one that strengthens you.why are you limiting yourself,the grace of the sun,moon and others are not enough for you,you too come and enjoy uncommon grace that provokes uncommon favour from God.So that you too can experience every other benefits from Christ Jesus.

Our memory verse says shall we say then? shall we  continue in sin,that grace may abound?.if you read verse 2 it gaves us the answer and said, GOD FORBID.this simply mean if  you admire this kind of grace,you  give your life to christ because that is the only way in which you can obtain the uncommon grace.If you are yet to give your life to Jesus,come to Jesus now give HIM your life so that you too can be a partaker of this uncommon grace.......Say Jesus have heard the truth I surrender all to you forgive and save my soul,write my name in the book of life.Amen

      

#8 : Your atmosphere 

KEY VERSE-2 Corinthian 3:17

  "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."
   
BIBLE PASSAGE- 2 Corinthians 3-17

"Now the Lord is that spirit:and where the spirit of the Lord is,there is liberty."

CONTENT 8
Its not only when we are in the church alone that we should be feeling the presence of the Lord,the Scripture says "HE will send HIS angel to us, to bear us on their shoulders lest we dash our leg against stone"this simply means HE will send HIS angel to watch over us and also  to guide us so that,we don't experience any danger of any kind.If the Lord is going to send HIs angel to protect us then we too must create an atmosphere that is  conducive for the spirit of God,because our God will never dwell in a stinking environment,so the nature of environment we created for ourselves will  determine,if God will come or send HIS angel to us.

How do you create your atmosphere ?.As a Christian what you do even when you are not at church  must not against God,either you are at your working place ,at home or anywhere make sure that what you are doing glorifies God,you may decide to worship God within your heart ,you can be listen to Christian songs,Christian messages,reading Christians book,make sure that what you are doing glorifies God and this will create an atmosphere that God can dwell in so that HIS angels can come and bear you on their shoulders.

Imagine,some who sings Hip hop,R and B or any kind of worldly song,or doing things that against the nature of God,such environment will be a kind of stinking and polluted  environment and that kind of atmosphere will not be conducive for God to dwell in such place to fellowship with the person although HE will be watching what such person is doing but will not involve HIMSELF in any thing pertaining to the person.

When you sings praises and worship the presence of God will surely come down,and when you sing worldly songs the presence of the devil also will surely come down and fellowship with his people.when you go to a party whereby they sing all manners of worldly song by the time presence of the  devil fill the house,it result to braking of bottle and fighting with weapons,that is why children of God are not to be listening or singing ungodly songs, hip hop and others because those song  glorify devil.

Our Memory verse says where there is the spirit of God there is liberty,and before the spirit of the Lord can come down we must make sure that our atmosphere is well prepared to the taste of God,then the spirit we come and there will be liberty.Try and create a conducive atmosphere for God,as to help you enjoy the presence of spirit of God which results to liberty.The same mouth you used in worship God don't use it again to worship the devil singing his song by his people,you can't sit on the fence.You cannot be praising God and at the same time praising the devil and don't forget that our God is a jealous God.


#9: Surrender for the gospel sake

 KEY VERSE : Revelation 12:11
  
    "They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb,and by;and the word of the testimony;and they love not their lives unto death." 

 _BIBLE PASSAGE-_ Act 21:12-13

12: And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem. 
  13: Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."

 CONTENT 9:
Our Jesus christ which is the role model to all Christian,HE surrender all to come to this world,HE was a spirit being before HE forsook all and became flesh so that HE might fight and set us free from the power of death.Even after HE became flesh being,HE still surrender all and went through pains.During HIS ministry on earth HE was not lazy HE was zealous,radical,diligent,focus and spreading the Gospel all over the cities,  surrender all till HE died and rose again.

All the apostles also surrender all,they were radical,zealous,suffered  persecutions,they lost their lives so that they may find it.Agabus the prophet prophesy to Paul apostle he said "When he was come unto us,he took the paul' girdle,bound the his own hand and feet,and said, thus saith the holy ghost,so shall jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth the girdle,shall deliver him into the hands of the gentiles." act 21-11,paul had been told what will happen to him at jerusalem, but he was not moved because he had surrendered all for the gospel.

What have you surrendered for the gospel sake?,do you think God HIS not asking you to surrender anything?,God want you to surrender not one,two,three but ALL.If you surrendered half or 99.9% it's not enough because if you don't surrender all,the ones you surrendered will not be meaningful that is why you have to surrender it all,so that those you have  surrendered can be meaningful.If you lost your live now you will found it.

Our memory verse said they love not their lives unto death,they have given all,surrendered all,they have given all to God,it does not matter your position in the church or you are just ordinary church member,i mean not a worker in the vineyard but its necessity you surrender all or give all,surrender all like Jesus our role model and the apostles of the past,and I pray that God help us in Jesus name(Amen).

   

 #10: Power

 KEY VERSE : Matthew 28:18

    "And Jesus came spake unto them saying,All power is given to me in heaven and in earth."

 BIBLE PASSAGE: Luke 9:1-2

     "1:Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. 
2:And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick"

 CONTENT 10:
Power is an ability to do,control something either in the realm of the physical or spirit.Our bible has opened our eyes to what power is and its very important to obtain the power of God as a child of God to defend our lives during trials and to overcome the devil and his Angel.Our bible says " finally brethren be strong in the Lord and in power of HIS might." Ephesians 6:10, it shows it's very important for us to be the  carrier of the power of God so that we can stand against wiles of the devil.

The power of God enables you to work miracles,signs and wonder through faith in the name of Jesus.To some born again Christian this power does not mean anything to them even though you are holy you still need the power of God to speak to any storm that  may come your way.A child of God who does not carry the power of God is open to attack of the principality and power and the rulers of darkness,you need the power to make them flee before you whenever they come.

Jesus disciple were without power,that is why the  Scripture says HE called the disciples and gave them power and authority over devils and to cure diseases.The power that Jesus gave them,made them to be the preachers of the gospel,its enabled them to work miracles,healing without backfire on them.

You need the power of God in your ministry,over that situation at hand,to help defend you and your family from attack of devils and also you need the power of God for the expansion of the gospel,The power of God will make you standout among others.The more you ask for the power  the more you received,the level of your power determines how far you can deal with principality and power.Ask God for power or for more power,ask and it shall be given to you.


 #11: Importance of holiness

 KEY VERSE : 1peter 1: 16

   "Because it is written,be ye holy;for am holy."

 BIBLE PASSAGE : john 8:51

   "Verily,verily,I say unto,you,if a man keep my saying,he shall never see death."

 CONTENT 11:
Holiness has different importance but  time will not permit me to list and explain all the importance of holiness.Holiness is the narrow bridge that every Christian must walk on to get to God.Because there is no any other means to get to God,many have walked on this bridge and their enjoy in heaven now,some while they were walking on it,because of little storm they lost focus and the bridge collapsed and some face a very huge storm and they lost focus."

Given your life to Jesus is just a decision you made which means you have chosen a new master. Chosen a new master does not mean you will satisfy the master,its when you satisfied a chosen master that he will be happy with his disciple and the disciple shall receive the blessing of the master.Our bible passage  says" if a man keep my saying he shall never see death."The death in  this Scripture means second death,gnashing of teeth in hell everlasting pain and sorrow, and the saying of the Lord is that you should  be holy and without holiness no one shall see God.

Holiness permit you to become a friend of God,when you sin the narrow bridge of holiness collapse,when it collapsed,it causes distance between you and God because it will be hard to reach God and when you amended your ways,the bridge will be reconstructed and friendship starts again with God.

If you walk right on the narrow bridge of holiness heaven will surely rejoice over you and your crowns shall be given to you according to your work, if you want to be the best friend of God and also make heaven you will have to be holy because without holiness you cannot see God.


 #12: Road to eternity 

MEMORY VERSE- 2 Corinthians 12:10

   "Therefore i take pleasure in infirmities,in reproaches,in necessities,in persecutions,in distresses,for Christ's sake:for when i am weak,then am I stronger."

 BIBLE PASSAGE: Romans 8:18

"[But what of that?] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us!."

 CONTENT 12: 
The road to eternity was free,plain,straight when our God constructed the road,the road was not bad after the construction of the road .It was Satan who went to caused so many  damage to the road;high hills,stagnancy,complains, persecutions,Sorrow,distractions, diseases, lack, fear, troubles, death, doubt, impatience and all thing that can make man provoke God to anger and that can divert them from the road.

The way Satan is working,Satan had planted and still planting several things on the road,Satan knew all that the Lord said we must engage in,I mean the will of God.God constructed eternity road using HIS will according to his nature which is the fruit of the spirit.And Satan came and began to planting all that can make human being  provoke God to anger and distraction.God is maintaining HIS standard but Satan keeps increasing his standard everyday,so that it can get harder and harder for children of God.

All that has being causing Christians to diverted from this road apostle paul said " I take pleasure in them."do you know why?apostle Paul understood and believe so much in  the word of God,so he knew somethings greater than things of this world that cannot been seen are somewhere for him and the joy in him over shadow every other lust and distractions, that he saw them as nothing.The road may be rough for us now we Christians keep moving don't show your weakness to Satan,that is why the Scripture said "in every situation give thanks"this means  that thank God for those thing you cann't see, if what you are seeing is given you sorrow and because of the joy ahead is much more than the present time.

Christians don't give up now,it's not time to be distracted,keep moving.Whatsoever trials that comes your way count it all joy because of the joy awaiting you in heaven.Scripture says "know ye not that they which run in race run all,but one receiveth the prize? so run,that ye may obtain." Keep moving tell Satan you are a lier,I will not be distracted and i will obtain my prize .

Are you still on the road?,if you are not there trace your back to the road and ask God to strengthens you to walk on  the road.

   
#13 : Adultery and fornication 

 KEY VERSE : Genesis 35-22

   "And it came to pass,when Israel dwelt in the land,that Ruben went and lay with Bilhah  his father's concubine:and Israel heard it.Now the son of Jacob were twelve." 

 BIBLE PASSAGE : Genesis 49:2-3

 "Ruben, you are my firstborn, my might, the beginning (the firstfruits) of my manly strength and vigor; [your birthright gave you] the preeminence in dignity and the preeminence in power. 
3:But unstable and boiling over like water, you shall not excel and have the preeminence [of the firstborn], because you went to your father’s bed; you defiled it—he went to my couch!."

CONTENT 13: 
Adultery simply means having sexual affairs with the opposite sex which involves a married woman or man with married or unmarried fellow. Fornication simply means having sexual affairs with an opposite sex which involves unmarried fellow with unmarried or married fellow.These words are very common in our society,to the extend that some people sees it as normal thing in which they have forgotten Sodom and Gomorrah how the anger of the Lord was up and destroyed the Land.

Sexual affair should be between a man and a woman that are both joined together legally as husband and wife,not between boyfriend and girlfriend or another man's wife and another woman's husband,these has result to unwanted pregnancy,wasting of natural resources from God to man,untimely death.Some have lost their glory through these act.....Hmmm five minute enjoyment that produces lost of glory,may be those that engaged in these does not know that, they have consequences.

While you are having sex illegally with another fellow,there is business transaction going on between the two party i.e there is buying and selling of glory,destiny and if they both have family curse  the exchange.Imagine of one of them hving demon or demons living inside him or her,the other one is not only having sex with the other fellow but also with the demon or demons inside of him or her.

Do you know it's involved making blood covenant,ties of souls together,the number of persons you have sex with is the number of souls you have tied.Even though if you don't stop these act for glory and destiny sake then stop it for heaven sake,God is not happy about this act because your body is the temple of the most high God,and you cannot use it the way you like.Sister or brother tell that fellow  troubling you that,NO TESTING,married ones tell that fellow troubling you that, your body belongs to you spouse.Remember what happened to  Ruben in our bible passage and also remember  Sodom and Gomorrah.REPENT!.
