TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR MONEY


Work is honourable. Developing the capacity to do work will help you contribute to the world in which you live. It will bring you increased sense of worth. It will bless you and your family, both now and in the future. Learning to work begins in the home. Help your family by willingly participating in the work necessary to maintain a home. Learn early to handle your money wisely and live within your means. Follow the teachings of the prophets by paying your tithing, avoiding debt, and saving for future.

Set high goals for yourself, and wiling to work hard to achieve them. Develop self-discipline, and be dependable. Do your best in your Church callings, schoolwork, employment, and other worthwhile pursuits. Young men should be willing to do what is needed to be prepared to serve a full-time mission. Heavenly Father has given you gifts and talents and knows what you are capable of achieving. Seek His help and guidance as you work to achieve your goals. The Lord has commanded us not to be idle. Idleness can lead to inappropriate behaviour, damaged relationships, and sin.

One form of idleness is spending excessive amounts of time in activities that keep you from productive work , such as using the internet, playing video games, and watching television. Do not waste your time and money gambling. Gambling is wrong and should not used as form of entertainment. It is addictive and can lead to lost opportunities, ruined lives, and broken homes. It is false to believe that you can get something for nothing.

One of the blessings of work is developing self-reliance. When you are self-reliant, you use the blessings and abilities God has given you to care for yourself and to find solutions for your own problems. Self-reliance does not mean that you must be able to do all things on your own. To be truely self-reliant, you must learn how to work with others and turn to the Lord for His help and strength. Remember that God has great work for you to do. He will bless you in your efforts to accomplish that work.
Now, “Once there was a man who was about to leave home on a trip; he called his servants and put them in charge of his property. He gave to each one according to his ability: to one he gave five thousand gold coins, to another he gave two thousand, and to another he gave one thousand. Then he left on his trip” (Matthew 25:14-15 GNT).

Jesus says in Matthew 25:14-15, “Once there was a man who was about to leave home on a trip; he called his servants and put them in charge of his property. He gave to each one according to his ability: to one he gave five thousand gold coins, to another he gave two thousand, and to another he gave one thousand. Then he left on his trip” (GNT).

In those days there weren’t any banks, so when this rich man left for his long trip, he entrusted his property to his servants. When he returned, he asked for an account from the servants; he wanted to know what they had done with his money.

This is called stewardship — it is related to the old English word for “manager.” The first law of financial freedom is the law of possession: Everything you have belongs to God. You are only a manager!

We are called to be stewards of our time. We are called to be stewards of our influence. We are called to be stewards of our health, our relationships, and our opportunities. God calls you to be steward or manager of everything you have.

You may say, “But wait a minute! I worked for my money, and now you want to tell me it isn’t mine?” Where do you think you got your body to work for your money? Where do you think you got your mind to work for it? Where do you think you got the energy to work for it? Where do you think you got the intelligence to work for it? Everything you have is a gift from God. You don’t really own anything in life; it’s all on loan.

You only get to use God’s money while you’re here on Earth. He’s loaned it to you for a few decades. He loaned it to somebody before you, and he’s going to loan it to somebody else after you die. You don’t own it; the Master owns it all. It’s all under management.

Do you know what the sign is that you’ve forgotten the law of possession? When you think your money is yours, you worry about it. You feel a pressure and stress that you weren’t meant to have.

Money management is a spiritual discipline. God is actually watching how you handle his money to see what spiritual riches he can trust you with in heaven. This might make you feel pressure, but there is actually freedom in the law of possession.

When you remember that God is the owner and you are the manager, you’ll worry a whole lot less and focus more on managing God’s money well.

IT'S NOT OVER UNTIL I WIN


The words “It’s finished!” can mean different things to different people. For the student, they might mean, “I’m finally graduating!” For the Jewish leaders at the time of Jesus, these words could mean they had succeeded in killing Jesus (John 11:53). For the Roman soldiers, it could describe the death penalty they had successfully carried out (19:16–18). For the disciples, these words could mean that their hopes of the Messiah delivering them from Roman bondage were dashed (Luke 24:19–21). But when Jesus uttered, “It is finished” (John 19:30), He was declaring He had completed the work the Father gave Him to do (17:4)—to be “an atoning sacrifice for our sins” (1 John 4:10).

"For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy." Hebrews 10:14 It’s satisfying to finish a job. Each month, for instance, one of my job responsibilities gets moved from one category to another, from “In Progress” to “Completed.” I love clicking that “Completed” button. But last month when I clicked it, I thought, If only I could overcome rough spots in my faith so easily! It can seem like the Christian life is always in progress, never completed.

Then I remembered Hebrews 10:14. It describes how Christ’s sacrifice redeems us totally. So in one important sense, that “completed button” has been pressed for us. Jesus’s death did for us what we couldn’t do for ourselves: He made us acceptable in God’s eyes when we place our faith in Him. It is finished, as Jesus Himself said (John 19:30). Paradoxically, even though His sacrifice is complete and total, we spend the rest of our lives living into that spiritual reality—“being made holy,” as Hebrews’ author writes.

The fact that Jesus has finished something that’s still being worked out in our lives is hard to understand. When I’m struggling spiritually, it’s encouraging to remember that Jesus’s sacrifice for me—and for you—is complete . . . even if our living it out in this life is still a work in progress. Nothing can stop His intended end from being achieved eventually: being transformed into His likeness (see 2 Corinthians 3:18).

Jesus, thank You for giving Your life for us. Help us trust You as we grow into followers whose lives look more and more like Yours, knowing that You are the one who makes us complete. God is at work to make us who He intends us to be.

"For many bare false witness against Him,but their witness agreed not together.And there arose certain,and bare false witness against Him,saying......." Mk.14:56-57KJV.

Dearly beloved and friends, there are times in life,when God allows you to pass through some challenges that are set up to boost your faith and to take you to your next level.Such,may lead to an unexpected loss job, promotion etc.

It is common in places of work and even strangely and painfully amidst children of God ,for those who hate your guts to frame you up or come up with very many untrue and fantom stories that cannot be corroborated just to do you in.
Painful, as such may be, as you remain closely knit with Jesus, all will work out for your good and ultimately in your favour  in the future.(Romans 8:28;1 Corinthians 2:8).

Examples
{1.} Joesph: was framed up for refusing the immoral advance of his boss’s wife(Genesis 39:12-20). {2.} Daniel: His colleagues conspired against him because of his excellent spirit and faith in God (Daniel 6:3-4) {3.}Jesus Christ: The Jews preferred to have a treasonable fellow and a murderer  to be set free than the sinless Son of God.( Luke 23:13-25). {4.} YOU: Framed up, set up by irritant fellows just to depress and suffer you?It will work for your good (Romans 8:28)

What to do
1.Cry to the Lord to deliver you (Jeremiah 33:3)
2.Keep your focus on Jesus (Hebrews 12:2)
3.Ask for grace to go through (2 Cor.12:9)
4.Do not revenge, allow God (Romans 12:19)

Blessing is majorly a result of revelation. A revelation of what to do, how to do them and with whom to do them? You see, if you could perfectly understand or get answers to these questions above, you will be very much greater than you can ever think. Although, the most important of these questions is with whom do you want to get the riches. Permit me, the best way to walk straight into blessing is through Jesus Christ. His mercy, wisdom, knowledge, faith, and power will grant us favour in all ways and make us proper most assuredly.

“…but he answered his father, ‘Look, these many years I have served you, and I never disobeyed your command, yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might celebrate with my friends. But when this son of yours came, who has devoured your property with prostitutes, you killed the fattened calf for him!’ And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. Luke 15:29-31.

The story of the other young lad in this story fully matched the reality that many children of God are living in right now. There is a great level of abundance that they can tap into that is made available for them, but because they lacked revelation and wisdom; they didn’t think it belonged to them and they have refused to use it or demand for it. The other boy though he lavished his inheritance, he had the revelation that Yes, this property belonged to me in as much as it belonged to his father, he demanded for it.

Of course the father did not have any problem in him demanding for his rights, he willingly gave it to him without rebuke. But the mistake was that, he thought that because he is blessed he is independent. Meanwhile, no matter how much we have received from God, our independent from him is death and is impossible. In him we live and find our being.

Don’t just keep sitting there musing over those that have been blessed, the blessing is also at your backyard; you just need to tap into it by seeking the required revelation that brings it to reality and getting more acquainted with your father-the possessor. You can be blessed only if you decide to, don’t be challenged again by others blessings. The lord wanted to bless you too if you know just how to go about it. Those that ask receiveth and those that seek finds.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:9-10).

Every man, woman, boy, and girl ever born, and that’ll ever be born into this world has already been “saved” by Jesus Christ. When He died, He died to save all humanity.

However, salvation is only a vital experience in the life of the one who has consciously affirmed the lordship of Jesus over his or her life. You receive salvation, or are saved, not just by believing in Jesus, but by taking the further step of affirming His lordship.

Read our opening scripture again and notice that it didn’t say, "if thou shall cry and ask God to save you, you shall be saved." The Bible way to receive salvation isn’t by your tears or good works. Salvation is a gift from God: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8). The Bible tells us about a Roman centurion named Cornelius. He was a devout and generous man; yet he wasn’t saved (Acts 10:2).

One day, an angel of the Lord appeared to him and said, "...Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved" (Acts 11:13-14). Salvation is a gift received by the affirmation of the right words. Once you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and confess with your mouth that He’s Lord over your life, instantly, you become a child of God; eternal life is imparted to your spirit. It’s an extraordinary miracle!

The world needs to know that it’s not difficult at all to receive salvation; it’s no use trying fruitlessly to atone for your sins or impress God with your “good works.” It makes no difference that you’re the nicest or meekest person around; you can’t trust in your good deeds to save you. There’s a definite act required for salvation: it’s the confession of the Lordship of Jesus, believing in your heart that God raised him from the dead.

Romans 10:6-10
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down [from above]:) (7) Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) (8) But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, [even] in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; (9) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Hebrews 13:5-6
Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (6) So that we may boldly say, The Lord [is] my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
Jesus alone is the only to God and all the wonderful things of life including the revelation of how things was, is, and is to come. Accept Jesus today and he will restructure your life for the best. Jesus loves you.

Prayer Points
1.Father,thank You for counting me worthy to suffer for righteousness sake.I need grace.
2.Father, You see,hear,feel and know the threatenings of the wicked,don't keep silent now,arise and fight for me(Ps.3:1-3).
3.Father,let everything,and I mean everything work together for my good.(Rom.8:28).
4.Father,let all Your children who are sowing in tears right now,reap in joy and have dominion.
5.Dear Father, I thank you for the efficacy of your Word in my life. I’m one with the Father, therefore I’m one with divinity. Health, wealth, prosperity, life, and success are my daily experience. I live in the fullness of the blessings of the glorious Gospel of Christ. I’m an overcomer, because greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

COUNSEL OF AHITHOPHEL SHALL NOT STAND

Peter  2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. They promise joy,  yet they inflict suffering. They promise happiness, yet they are source of agony and pain.

People look unto them as men of dignity,  yet they are men if dishonor. Little did they know,  God will bring vengeance on every man that lie, that deceive others,  that oppresses the poor. If you are in the same category, it is time for you to repent,  before the anger of the Lord cut up with you.

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). Just as God is a Spirit, man is also a spirit, and was made in the image and in the likeness of God. Thus, your body isn’t you; it’s your house, the home of your spirit. Your physical eyes can’t see by themselves; they’re windows through which your spirit sees the world around you.

Romans 12:1 says, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” If your body were the real you, how then would you be able to present it to God? Who would do the “presenting,” seeing that your body is what YOU are to present? This lets you know there’s more to you than your physical body; you’re a spirit being.

The real you is who Peter calls the “...hidden man of the heart” (1 Peter 3:4). He’s the same one the Apostle Paul calls the “inward man” (2 Corinthians 4:16). The inward man is the human spirit; the one who can’t be seen with the physical eyes. The “outward man” is the body with its five senses. The real “you” is the inward man, not the outward man. When you speak, it’s the inward man that talks through your mouth.

Too many are only concerned about what’s going on in their bodies, not giving the required attention to developing and educating their spirits. The man inside, your spirit, is the one that God deals with and relates to, not the physical body. The Lord relates with your spirit in leading and guiding you; He contacts you through your spirit. Walk in this consciousness, and live beyond physical circumstances.

Your spirit is where the life of God resides. When you received the Holy Spirit, He mingled with your spirit and became one with your spirit, in an inseparable union (1 Corinthians 6:17). Now you can better understand why your spirit is what really matters to God. It’s important to learn how to function from your spirit, and the way to do this is to keep your focus on the Word of God, and live from inside out, refusing to be moved by the dictates of your physical senses.

Colossians 3:3
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

2 Corinthians 4:16
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

Proverbs 20:27 NKJV
The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, Searching all the inner depths of his heart.

In this transient world, every one of us is looking for something, working towards something and reaching towards an end, and this is of course right; because this is what makes life meaningful/interesting. No one ever existed without aspiring to become or have something in life, but not all who aspires to get it gets it and not who try to become actually becomes.

“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.” Heb.3:12.

The most vital and pressing reason why most people don’t achieve their dreams is their dangerous state of heart. The word of God said to be careful lest there be in any of us a heart of UNBELIEF. Unbelief does not two things but one- destruction. When we are talking about unbelief, it is a state that is assumed when things are no longer working according to our plans, when things are going contrary to what we intended; but in all these things, total faith is required to get to the end, and lay hold of the awaiting victory.

When we have a solid and operational belief in ourselves, mission, vision and dreams; it will surely come to pass. God promised his children a hope and a future, and he said, this particular hope that he promised them does not disappoint, it is just left to the people to do the work of believing in him. Many people think they can get all they wanted to in this world without God, But I can tell you, the end of all men without Christ is eternal death in Hell (take it or leave it, I need not conceal it this time). Jesus said, ‘what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and loose his soul.’ It is like the foolishness of a young lad who traded all his happiness in school just to be relevant among his friends, but a time of going home alone will come and he wont have anything else. Why? Because he hath traded it in school. The world is like a school, we will all return home alone, and if we had traded our life by living it our own way excluding God, it is a catastrophe.

When we have total belief in God and our faith is unshaken despite present circumstances, then God will show himself mighty on our behalf; as things will start to work in our favour, to our advantage, and there will be a glorious announcement of us into the limelight. Note, the last verse of our bible passage said, the people could not enter into the rest (Promised Land, a place of victory) because of unbelief. They could not achieve it because of their dangerous state of heart ‘Unbelief.’  But with the right state of mind, whatever is before you is achievable; have faith in God and he will bring it to pass-That’s the right state of mind.

Jesus alone is the way to God; no man comes to God except through Jesus. Jesus loves you and desires to fill you with faith that brings victory. ‘Here is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith (faith in Christ Jesus). Jesus loves you.

“He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise. He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.”
‭‭Job‬ ‭5:12-13‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Dearly beloved and friends, today more than ever before ,the body of Christ is confronted with such outrageous atrocities and affront.The devil is raging ferociously because his time is very short. "Why do the heathens rage and the people imagine a vain thing ?"Psalm 2:1.

National,household and domestic enemies can only bark but cannot bite;if we take a firm stand for the Lord and pray earnestly.(Jeremiah 1:8;Isaiah 41:10-16,2 Chronicles 7:14).

Complacency is a very dangerous step in the direction of destruction.There is a kind of fast growing lethargy and apathy on the parts of many Christians in this our generation. The church comprising of you and me will in those days speak boldly against any aggression,from any quarter but today many have become lame ducks.We must not allow the name of our Lord ,His people, our family and our faith to be trampled upon again.Stand against evil counsel.
Peter spoke against evil counsel(Acts 4:19-21).John the Baptist openly rebuked immorality of Herod (Matthew 14:3-6). Three Hebrew Children are not bowing down to any false god no matter the threat(Daniel 3:16-18).

What to do:
1.Be bold as the Lion because you are righteous.
2.Have nothing to do with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather reproof them sharply.
3.Make prophetic utterances against all the uprising of the wicked and all their agents.
4.God is the man of war,He fights while you praise Him.He will never lose a battle.
5.Utter prophetic mysteries to your situations.

Prayer Points
1.Father thank You that I am Your battle axe,please make me valiant in battle.
2.Arise oh Lord in Your wrath and fury,as a bulwark with thunder and lightning against every one rising against the church,our nation and against our family and against my destiny.
3.Father,do not withdraw Your hands until all enemies are vanquished, and we have peace.
4.Father,show Your anger in no small measure against those who are bent on frustrating our destiny,that of Your church ,and our family.
5.Father,please let me stand firmly on Jesus the Solid Rock as I praise You in battle.
6.Father,in every warfare make me more than a conqueror in Jesus victorious name Amen.
7. Lord I praise you for calvary that makes forgiveness of all sins possible.
8. Lord, give me the right heart and attitude to your Word that will always flee from presumptuous sins.
9. Lord, I am sorry for all the presumptuous sins of the past. I promised a total change. Cancel the punishments in mercy.
10. Lord, send the true fear and honour for God that keeps from presumptuous sins into the hearts of all your children in the Church.

Psalm 27:14 Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. Some times, what happens to us should not have happen,  if appropriate measures had been applied. Abraham and Sarah could not wait for the unfailing God, they helped themselves, and latter discovered it was not necessary. King Soul could not wait for God's direction from Samuel,  his kingdom was turn apart

Gehazi could not wait for the appropriate time to receive blessing,  the line of prophet was ended on Him, and also receive course that last through his entire  generation .It is better to wait for God's time, so that one does not discover at the end that one has foolishly lost all. It pays to wait for God in "all things "Don't be faster than God. I pray,  in the journey of life, you will not be wasted in Jesus name. “That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God” (Numbers 15:40).

God’s untiring efforts to let people know His Word and ways, and walk therein are for their benefit. For instance, had King Zedekiah heeded Jeremiah’s counsel, the destruction of Jerusalem would have been averted. His failure not only brought about the destruction of Jerusalem but his children were also killed before him; his two eyes were plucked out and he was carried bound with fetters to Babylon where he died.

God warns against presumptuous sin – a deliberate, defiant sin which is an affront to God’s authority over man, and therefore carries capital punishment or death. God commanded Moses to instruct the Israelites to make fringes in the boarders of their garments, as a reminder of their obligation to keep all His commandments. Similarly today, all believers are expected not to “live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again” (2 Corinthians 5:15).

Knowing the truth of God’s word and obeying them sets a man free – sinners are saved, and believers are preserved in true righteousness. Christians are no longer required to put fringes on the boarders of their garments. But the demand to remember and obey every word of God still subsists. A sustained and fruitful fellowship with God can only be guaranteed when His people continue in His Word – in total obedience and holy living. As we read, study and meditate on the word of God daily, He will give us strength  to obey it.
The same sins can earn different judgements. If a person sinned ignorantly without knowing it to be sin until later. It is still sin. There is an atonement for it vv27-29.If a person is in doubt whether an action is sinful or not and he chooses to go the wrong lane, he has sinned presumptuously. He will receive capital punishment as someone who deliberately sins. Doubtful actions are sinful vv30-31. In OT, presumptuous sins are as serious as deliberate sins. No atonement for them vv30-31. Thank God in the NT, we have the sin Bearer. Any presumptuous sinner who does not repent and come to Jesus will bear his sins and the implication is eternal death v31, Isaiah 53:11.

At this point in time, there was no clear law that sticks should not be gathered on the sabbath day except that no work  should be done Exodus 20:8-11. It was a doubtful or presumptuous action for the man gathering of sticks to "force" himself to do so. He should have made the choice of avoiding it totally in honour to God. He was nonchalant and he was given capital punishment. Why do you think God rates presumptuous sins as deliberate sins? Are there controversial conducts in the Christiandom as to whether they are right or wrong? Wisdom and the fear of God demand staying clear and staying safe completely.

In this transient world, every one of us is looking for something, working towards something and reaching towards an end, and this is of course right; because this is what makes life meaningful/interesting. No one ever existed without aspiring to become or have something in life, but not all who aspires to get it gets it and not who try to become actually becomes.

Jesus alone is the way to God; no man comes to God except through Jesus. Jesus loves you and desires to fill you with faith that brings victory. ‘Here is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith (faith in Christ Jesus).  Jesus loves you.

God has given us the victory and edge over sin and has given us life, but the responsiblity of keeping the life in us alive lies with us. we've got to choose whether we will look back after putting our hands to the plow or follow and do the biddings of the master. There is a state of danger that a child of God can subject himself to if he abides in sin. We are saved not because we are righteous, but we are saved to be righteous. "...But whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire." Matt.22

I know we live in the dispensation of grace, but grace as i will continue to say by the spirit of the living God, that grace is an enablement to do right not a license to do wrong. grace is placing you on a standard you never merit simply because someone already merited it on our behalf, but the only way to stand strong in it is to abide in the one who merited it for us, and the meritor will never lead us to do contrary to God's will; the seed remain in us.

Danger is not death in itself, but danger is a messenger of death that draws people to death. The best way to deal with danger is not to negotiate with it or compromise it, the only way in danger is to come out of it. danger is danger and it cant be degenerated of its deadly effect or be redirected to something else. The only way is to come out of danger, the only way to also escape the danger of hell fire is to come out of the sin that easily entangles us and abide under the grace of Jesus and do only his biddings.  

The word of the Lord told us that sin when it has conceived, brings forth death. There is a lot of things involved in conceiving to giving birth. what is being conceived grows from little to bigger, from dimension to dimension, and totally transforms into a greater force. So likewise, sin draws people to death. So, when we make mistakes, lets quickly repent and not let it have dominion over us. dont be addicted to doing wrong, repent of all wrongs. Jesus talked about some prophets who will go to hell in the end of days. He said, this prophets will come to me and said, 'in your name we have prophecy great things and do many wonderful things' but he said, i will say to them, 'depart from me (into hell) you workers of iniquity'. jesus gave the life to them when they accepted him, but they refuse to take responsiblity for it, they let sin grow in them till the extent of it conceiving death in them. They were like those that Apostle Paul said, it would have been better that they didn't even hear the gospel in the first place.

Sin shall not have dominion over us, 'let the weak say i am strong' why? 'becasue of what the Lord has done'. you have access to the grace to live the Zoe (God) kind of life. accept it in faith and live it. Jesus alone is the way out of sin, we cant save ourselves. Accept Jesus today, Jesus loves you.


HYMN: Just Obey

1. Just as God who reigns on High
Spake to men in days gone by,
So the Lord is calling men today;
And, my brother this is true,
Whatso-e'er He says to you
There is but one thing to do, just obey

Chorus
Just obey, just obey,
Is the way, God's way;
When His message comes to you,
There is but one thing to do,
Just obey, just obey

2. If you're in the Saviour's hands,
You must do as He commands,
For there is no other gospel way;
Never put the message by,
Never stop to reason why,
When the Saviour speaks to you, just obey

Chorus
Just obey, just obey,
Is the way, God's way;
When His message comes to you,
There is but one thing to do,
Just obey, just obey

3. If for mansions fair you sigh
In that land beyond the sky
After time with you has pass'd away;
Tho' the way you may not see,
Christ is calling ''Follow Me''
Faith and duty both will cry just obey

Chorus
Just obey, just obey,
Is the way, God's way;
When His message comes to you,
There is but one thing to do,
Just obey, just obey.

THE IMPACT OF EVERYTHING


Before you see a young man that elders are bowing to, check that young man, he is bowing to something greater than they have seen . Age does not stop the 'honour' sacrifice brings. Men don't bow to men who bows to nothing. Honour has a cost. And money cannot buy it . It is paid for by sacrifices. Ask for the price of the OIL you want to carry in our time, sir , and pay for it .You were on Facebook arguing, while others are in the secret crying to God for OIL

Any glory not gotten in the place of prayer will evaporate someday. Altars controls thrones, what sustains altars are sacrifices.and sacrifices are made with pains

Man lost his dominion in the garden through food That was why Jesus came and started with fasting. Satan understood that Jesus has understood the code, that was why he rushed to tempt Him with the same food.

But Jesus disappointed him. What an eternal disaster it would have been for humanity if Jesus have eaten that bread. Some people have eaten their family liberation in canteens and restaurants.

Many people who are supposed to be handling great power and anointing are still on the dinning table morning, afternoon and night dragging food. It was not Paul's education that made him the greatest. It was the price he paid in the place of prayer and fasting and studying.

Certificate would not have helped Paul when the demons in Malta sent vipers to end his ministry. Cobras and vipers don't hear grammar. They obey the voice of Fire. Increase your level of knowledge, sir . Enroll in school, if you can. But don't abandon your prayer altar.  

Don't let anyone talk down the place of sacrifice of praying and fasting to you .Honour in the Kingdom starts from the knees.Honour doesn't shout.It doesn't brag .It doesn't advertise. No matter how much a man God has honoured hides, his generation will look for him. But check that guy, there is a price he is paying in the place of prayer. Because when a man is addicted to the secret place of the most high, He must abide under the shadows of the Almighty.

Go and revive your prayer altar, Sir. If not, you will soon lose alignment.  If you love me, take me me back to my knees. If I can succeed there, I can conquer anywhere else. If an idol worshipper can wield so much power after hiding himself before dead gods, imagine what will happen when we hide ourselves before the God that made heavens and the earth?Have you seen why we should be ashamed of this too much noise we are making and yet no power? Too much packaging, yet, nothing is changing.

Is it not better we didn't come into the kingdom at all, than to being known in history as the generation that spoke only Queen's English to the demons we were suppose to chase away? Go back to your secret place beloved and see what will happen in the oil

Your first relationship should be with Jesus Christ. Many people look down on those who are single. The single life is a blessed life. You have Christ in you. It can actually be a gift. It is important to be content. It is Christ who completes you.
1 Corinthians 7:7; "For I would that all men were even as myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that."
Paul is saying that all men should have discipline as he has. There will always be temptations in your life. You must be disciplined in a relationship. Otherwise, you can open the door for the enemy to enter. Your relationship with God is very important. You can feel lonely when you are not disciplined. God will reach out to you. As a leader you must reach out to others. Being single isn't something to be ashamed of.
Luke 2:36-38; 36. And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;37. And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. 38. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem."
Anna was a widow who was also a prophetess. She was a widow for 84 years. She was faithful to God and fasted and prayed night and day. You need to unlock God's power. You have the power because you are the righteousness of God. You are single but you have the wisdom of God.
Isaiah 45:24; "Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed."
You have righteousness and strength. You have been forgiven and redeemed by the blood of Jesus. Jesus is within you. From the beginning, God has always been with you. Even before you were born. Being single you have the wisdom of God. There are five benefits of having the wisdom of God.
  • Live a long life. (Proverbs 3:2). You will live a long life and have much peace. When you are single, you have more time to praise God.
  • You can be rich; (2 Corinthians 8:9). You are under the grace of God. Jesus became poor so that you could be rich. You become blessed through Jesus Christ and you have the grace of God. There is power in the blood of Jesus and you are blessed through His blood.
  • You have honor;  (Exodus 20:12). You must honor your mother and father and you shall  have a long life. This is the wisdom of God. This is the first commandment with a promise. In order to be healthy and strong, you must put God first. You have what is called spiritual muscles. In order to build up your spiritual muscles, you must meditate on the Words of God and pray day and night. (Joshua 1:8).
  • Pleasure; you obtain pleasure through the wisdom of God.
  • Peace; you obtain peace when you have the wisdom of God.
