LOVE-THE BUILDING BLOCK OF THE FAMILY

TOPIC: THE MISSING RIB

TEXTS: Eph. 5: 33; 1 Cor. 13: 1-13; John 13: 34-35

VESSEL: Pastor Johnson A. Noiki

INTRODUCTION:

Welcome to another season of examining our homes. All over the world, the family is held in high esteem. The family is the first focus in God’s agenda for the world. There is need to understand the functioning of the family if we need to live in a society full of peace and harmony

MESSAGE OUTLINE:

  1. A.                WHAT IS FAMILY?
  • Social unit of two or more persons related by blood, marriage, or adoption and having a shared commitment to the mutual relationship.
  • A group consisting of a man and a woman duly joined together in marriage

Here we see a good example in the Garden of Eden – Genesis 2: 21-25

There was a unifying force that kept them together in the Garden. The Bible says, “they were both naked and were not ashamed”

  • A group consisting of two parents and their children living together as a unit;

The first family missed out when they started rearing children – Gen. 4: 1-5.

Something was missing.

However Job was also a family man and it was said of Job – Job 1: 1-5

 

Family can also be said to be:

  • All the descendants of a common ancestor.
  • All adherents of same faith uniting for a common goal.
  1. B.                THE MISSING RIB

v   What was the missing rib in the first family on earth?

v   We remember that in the Garden, love, harmony, unity was prevailing.

v   No sooner that SIN came in through the enemy of God, those prevailing virtues ran away.

v   Sin is a blocker of blessings; where sin is operative, love is put at the background.

v   According to 1 Cor. 13, we are told that love is the encompassing virtue that sustain life – 1 Cor. 13:13 (WesleyNT) “And now abide these three, faith, hope, love; but the greatest of these is love.”

v   This missing rib is LOVE.

v   In marriages today, love is missing.

v   The foundation on which the first marriage was conducted is love

v   Today, however, people marry for various reasons

Some because they want to satisfy an urge or appetite

Some were forced to marry because of ethnic or social purpose

Some marry on “Love at first sight”

v   Such marriages have no base and will soon crumble.

v When Paul was asking discussing the relationship with one another in Eph. 5, he spoke of wife submitting to the husband and husband loving his wife. This has become the norm especially the Christians are easily and quickly to quote this scripture. However, the bible says we should submit one to another and also that women should love their husbands. In Titus 2: 3-5 we read,  “…older women are to… encourage the young women to love their husbands… so that God’s message will not be slandered”.

  1. C.    RESTORATION OF MISSING RIB  

To restore this missing rib in marriage, there is need for us to go back to the Author Himself.

  1. Learn from the 1st couple
  2. Pattern our engagement after God’s principles
  3. Pattern our courtship after godly principles
  4. Pattern our wedding after godly principles and
  5. Pattern our home after godly principles

What are these godly principles?

  1. Hebrews 13:4 (KJV) Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”
  2. God-centered. God must be in the center of each marriage for it to blossom and reach its full potential. Remember, you are a conduit of God’s love for your spouse. When a husband and wife are tapped into the bottomless ocean of the Lord’s grace, love and mercy, they are eager to have that overflow onto each other. Pray for strength, guidance and wisdom to love each other well.
  3. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged (1 Cor. 13:4, 5).
  4. 4.     Jesus Christ says, John 13:34-35 (KJV) A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
  5. 5.     Seek godly parents’ counsels – Abraham told his servant where to marry a wife for his son Isaac.
  6. 6.     Marry within the fold – 2 Corinthians 6:14-16 (KJV) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

 

CONCLUSION:

If we follow the principles of the Author of Family we can never lack the building block; peace joy and harmony will surely flow in such homes who apply the heavenly biblical resources.

Programme of Prayers

21 DAYS WAITING ON THE LORD

{Dec. 16, 2013 – Jan. 05, 2014}

“AWAKE”

Romans 13: 11

8, ALABA OKIRI STREET, OFF COMMUNITY ROAD, SATELLITE TOWN, LAGOS. NIGERIA.

“Jesus Christ the same, yesterday and today and forever”. Heb. 13: 8

Beloved,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you again into this year’s Annual Fasting and Praying. Last year, it was the “Latter Day Glory” – Hag. 2: 9.  I sincerely believed many if not all of us who participated received glorious testimonies; the good Lord reached out to us in many divers New Beginnings. Again this season, I want you to put your faith in God who is the One that will grant you strength to wait; who has ears to listen to your various petitions and also has mercy and favor to grant answers to your requests. Put your trust in Him, He will not disappoint you. The bible says “Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper”. 2 Chronicles 20:20 (KJV).  God had been proving and showing Himself great and mighty in our affairs over the years and I know without doubt, this year waiting shall usher us to greater level of renewal and revival in Jesus name. The bible says, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew strength…” Isa. 40: 31.

Brethren, the coming back of the Lord is imminent. It calls for us to be alert in the Spirit and be prepared like the 5 virgins in Matthew 25: 2. They kept awake, they had oil in their lamps and they also had reserves for the journey. Romans 13:11 (KJV) says, “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.”  Brethren, I can only enjoin us to stay awake for no one knows the day or the hour but the day is close at hand. Be Awake!

The year 2013, was declared our year of “JOYFUL SOUND” yet I am aware that many individuals as well as the church had our ups and downs. The prophecy is still there for our possession. Hence, this end of year cum beginning of the New Year spiritual exercises to end 2013 in Joyful Sound and enter the year 2014 in a glorious fashion. There will be great testimonies in Jesus name.  I want you to walk and work in this divine order.

God can do it again in our time. I exhort you therefore to take heed to Bro James, “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord …” James 1:6-8 (KJV)

God bless you richly in Jesus name.  MARANATHA!

 

Your Pastor,

 

 

Johnson A. Noiki

THE POWER OF PRAYER AND FASTING

 

Fasting is the most powerful spiritual discipline of all the Christian disciplines. Through fasting and prayer, the Holy Spirit can transform your life.

Fasting and prayer can also work on a much grander scale. According to Scripture, personal experience and observation, I am convinced that when God’s people fast with a proper Biblical motive-seeking God’s face not His hand, with a broken, repentant, and contrite spirit, God will hear from heaven and heal our lives, our churches, our communities, our nation and world. Fasting and prayer can bring about revival – a change in the direction of our nation, the nations of earth and the fulfillment of the Great Commission.

The awesome power can be released through you as you fast through the enabling of the Holy Spirit.

The combination of fasting and praying is not a fad or a novelty approach to spiritual discipline. Fasting and praying are not part of a human-engineered method or plan. They are not the means to manipulate a situation or to create a circumstance. Fasting and praying are Bible-based disciplines that are appropriate for all believers of all ages throughout all centuries in all parts of the world.

Fasting and Prayer Put You into the Best Possible Position for a Breakthrough

That breakthrough might be in the realm of the spirit. It may be in the realm of your emotions or personal habits. It may be in the realm of a very practical area of life, such as a relationship or finances. What I have seen repeatedly through the years, not only in the Scriptures but in countless personal stories that others have shared — is that periods of fasting and prayer produce great spiritual results, many of which fall into the realm of a breakthrough. What wasn’t a reality . . . suddenly was. What hadn’t worked . . . suddenly did. The unwanted situation or object that was there . . . suddenly wasn’t there. The relationship that was unloving . . . suddenly was loving. The job that hadn’t materialized . . . suddenly did.

The very simple and direct conclusions I draw are these: First, if the Bible teaches us to do something, I want to do it. I want to obey the Lord in every way that He commands me to obey Him. And second, if fasting and praying are means to a breakthrough that God has for me, I want to undertake those disciplines so I might experience that breakthrough!

 

You are blessed as you carry on the Fasting to the end.

The Great Awakening

TEXTS:  Rom. 13:11-14; Acts 3:19; Ps. 89: 15-16; Matt. 24: 32-44

VESSEL: Pastor Johnson A. Noiki

~ Will you be ready when the Lord shall come – 2ce.

INTRODUCTION:

Today we are going to be looking at “Great Awakening”. Beloved, we are not yet where the Lord wants us to be. We are far below His expectations for our lives. From all the revelations that have been given by God Himself to His servants in recent times, Jesus is not happy with what is happening among His children. Many so called Christians are languishing in hell, many are on their way to hell should they die suddenly now, yet they are happy in church, they keep all sacraments.

Brethren, it is not enough to keep sacraments. What is the condition of your heart? Can we say as Apostle Paul said, in Romans 8:16 (KJV) The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:” If not, then God has given us another opportunity to examine our lives if so be that we are in Christ. The Lord may come anytime from now. If He finds you wanting, you shall be left behind.

Therefore, I sincerely believed that, this is the reason the committee set up for our Renewal Program this Year chose this topic for our consideration – The need for us to be ready for His coming.

Apostle Paul says,

“The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.” Romans 13:12 (KJV)

MESSAGE OUTLINE:

  1. CONDITION OF THE TIME : Romans 13: 11-12a; John 4: 35; 2 Pet 3: 9-10

BELOVED, we are in the injury time of life. The coming of the Lord is closer than we may ever have expected or be thinking about. He could come any moment from today. If He comes, how will He finds you? This is a big question every one of us will need to URGENTLY answer.

Read Romans 13: 11-12a; John 4: 35

Apostle Paul in the passage written above in his own time here on earth made it clear to us that ‘the night is far spent’. Our ‘days’ and ‘years’ of waiting for His coming is far spent. The day or time of His revelation to mankind is near. Therefore what kind of person are we to be?

  1. CONDITIONS FOR OUR READINESS: Matt. 24: 32-44; Rom. 13: 12b-14;      2 Pet 3: 9-13;

Beloved, can I ask you this question today? What type of life are you living? What is your conversation in this world like? If the trumpet should sound today, what is your assurance that you will fly with Him?

In Matthew 24 from the 32nd verse, Jesus was discussing about His coming, let us read the conversation – (vv. 32-44).

Beloved, there is need for us to be ready, Peter said in 2 Peter 3: 9-11
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.   But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,”

  1. THE CALL TO OUR READINESS: Galatians 5: 19-21                                          Apostle Paul in our theme text said, ‘let us therefore cast off the works of darkness’ (v.12). What are these works of darkness, “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like:” Galatians 5:19-21 (KJV). Those who still indulge in these things, the bible says, shall not inherit the Kingdom.

What is the remedy? “Let us put on the armour of light.” – Romans 13: 12. Light is a    revealer, whatsoever that may hinder our readiness shall be revealed by the Light and this will help us to cry to God for help.

Let Christ be formed in our lives daily. Let us put away the works of darkness and walk in the glorious light of Christ.

We know that John said in 1 John 1 from verse 6, If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”. (1 John 1: 6-9)

Repent and be converted – Acts 3: 19

CONCLUSION:-:

When we look at our life and compare with what the scriptures says, we can make great adjustment to be conformed to the pattern of the Lord Jesus Christ. And when He comes, He will find us ready to go with Him.  The Lord will help us in Jesus name.

HINDRANCES OF JOYFUL SOUND

TEXTS: Psalm 89: 15-16; Deut 28: 58-59; Jer 4: 1-2.

VESSEL: Pastor Johnson A. Noiki

INTRODUCTION:

Having looked at what can make us know and enjoy Joyful Sound in the last two segments, today brethren, I want to look at some enemies or what I should call Hindrances of Joyful Sound which we must guide against for our Joyful Sound to come.  What is it that if I do or do not do will cause Joyful Sound to be far away from me?

A RECAP:

  1. We have explained what the theme is all about and had seen how we can key into the theme of Joyful Sound.
  2. We were told that we need to study, meditate, and live the scriptures.
  3. We need to work and walk in righteousness.
  4. We need to always be conscious that Joyful Sound is by Grace alone. For it is not unto him that willeth … but God that shows mercy – Rom 9: 16.
  5. We have also seen that we need self discoveries. Who are you? Why has God created me? What am I doing now? What am I suppose to be doing or where am I suppose to be? Knowing who you are is a great step to enjoying Joyful Sound.
  6. It is not just enough to know where you are; you are to discover why you are where you are!
  7. In Proverbs 3: 18 we found a beautiful statement – “She (wisdom) is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her”.  In all your getting this year, get understanding, it will give you joy in Jesus name.

Today however, I want to quickly look at the enemies of Joyful Sound.

MESSAGE OUTLINE:

  1. SIN AND ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS:
  • The first creatures of God enjoyed abundance of Joyful Sound – Adam and Eve knew, tasted, enjoyed, Joyful Sound until sin crept in and their relationship with God was marred. From then on it was hardship.
  • David knew and tasted much of Joyful Sound until he sinned against his God. He was embittered as a result of his sin of adultery.
  • Jesus knew and enjoyed the Joyful Sound until He carried our sin on the Cross of Calvary. The Father turned His back at Him and He shouted, Father, Father, why hast Thou forsaken me?
  • Sin is a destroyer of Joy; sin is a robber of testimonies. Flee from it – 1 Tim 6: 6-12; 2 Tim 2: 22-26. 1 Thess 5: 22 (Abstain from all appearance of evil.)
  • Joseph made covenant not to sin – the resultdreams were fulfilled.
  • Daniel hated worldly affections – Became celebrated leader even in a foreign land.
  • Jesus rebuked openly – Get thee behind me Satan and Peter became the celebrated leader of the Church.
  • Paul resolved to confront sin of hypocrisy headlong – Gal 2: 11-12 – he rebuked Peter openly. King Solomon said, “Better is open rebuke Than love that is hidden. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; But the kisses of an enemy are profuse”. Prov 27:5-6 (ASV)

2. WRONG ATTITUDE:

  • Your character matters most in Joyful Sound.
  • What you love most gets you to where you want or do not want to be

Example of Ruth, (Ruth 1: 16-17). Orpah kissed Naomi and went back but Ruth                      said – vv. 16-17 “And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from                   following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I                       will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:  Where thou diest,                 will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me”. Ruth 1:16-17 (KJV)

  • Evil Communications – negative confessions
  • Disobedience to His commandments – Mark 16: 15
  • Failure to rejoice – Ps 89: 16; 1 Thess 5: 16-19

3. PRAYERLESNESS:

    • Lack of Self Altar & Knee Bending – “when knee bending stops, backsliding creeps in”.
    • Lack of consecration; yieldedness or surrenderness; lack of focus
    • Lack of faithfulness – You must be at your duty post always.

    -         Zacharias was at his duty post when his Joyful Sound came – Luke 1: 11-14

    He was faithfully discharging his duties despite the need in his life.

    -         Mordecai was at his duty post and brought joy to all Israelites

    • Lack of Giving – Psalm 50: 7 (Give your Time, Treasure, Talent)
    • Lack of Thanksgiving – Psalm 50: 14-15; 1 Thess. 5: 18.

    CONCLUSION:-:

    Brethren, God is faithful! He will not deny you your Joyful Sound but only if you guide against those things that can hinder your Joyful Sound and do those things that will promote Joyful Sound in your life. 1 Thessalonians 5: 24 says, “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.”

    PRAYERS:

    1. You are the Porter, I am the clay, help me not to struggle with you, Lord, in this journey in Jesus name.
    2. O Lord, bestow on me the grace to surrender all to you in Jesus name.
    3. Every remote control of sin against my Joyful Sound, catch fire and die in the name of Jesus.
    4. Lord, purge me of sins hindering my Joyful Sound from appearing in the name of Jesus.
    5. Whatsoever the enemy has set in motion against my enjoying Joyful Sound this year, be destroyed by fire from heaven in Jesus name.

    TOPIC: JOYFUL SOUND 2

    INTRODUCTION:

    The Year of Joyful Sound has started and many are already receiving Joyful Sound. This year you will not miss out of the theme in Jesus name. God has started confirming the word of His prophets in our midst. What do I do to know the Joyful Sound?

    The Psalmist says in verse 14 of the theme text that “Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.”

    1. You must come before Him with clean hearts because God’s throne from where your Joyful Sound shall come is Holy and nothing that defiles can ever get there.
    2. The Lord expects you to do all things righteous before Him and the people you see around you this year, because God is no respecter of any person; He gives what you have sown. He judges righteously.
    3. You must remember that it is only by Grace that we receive and not by force or how much you struggle – ït is of God who show mercy” – Rom. 9: 16
    4. “Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful” Lk. 6:36. Remember Matthew 5: 7 “only the merciful shall obtain mercy.

    It is our year of Joyful Sound. It is yours to experience in Jesus name. Amen!

    MESSAGE OUTLINE:

    -         Walk in the light of God

    -         Walk in purity – our purity must be inward one not the outward appearance – 1 Sam 16: 6-7; Luke 11: 39; Rom 7: 22.

    -         For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind Hosea 8:7

    -         whatsoever a man soweth, Gal 6:7-8

    1. IT IS ONLY BY GRACE: Genesis 6: 8; Rom 9: 16;

    -         Noah found grace – Gen. 6: 8;

    -         Esther found grace – Esther 5: 1-3

    -         not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth – Romans 9:16

    -         Apostle Paul found grace – Acts 9: 3-

    -           

    CONCLUSION:-:

    Brethren, to know and to experience the Joyful Sound, we must be ready to do the work God’s own way; Serve Him in His own way; Let us be focus on Him for He is the owner and the Joyful Sound comes from His throne whose foundation is Righteousness and Justice.

    JOYFUL SOUND

    TEXTS: Psalm 89: 15-16; Psalm 27: 4-6

    VESSEL:  Pastor Johnson A. Noiki

    INTRODUCTION:

    I welcome you all to our Year of Joyful Sound in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. It is my prayer that the year theme will work for you all including me in Jesus name. It is our season of JOY!

    First and foremost I want you to know that God had prepared us for this theme. From September last Year, the Lord has been speaking to us through the various monthly themes we had: In September it was – Thy Kingdom Come; then we moved into Divine Visitation in October and then the Fullness of Christ in November before the Lord gave us The Full Joy unto Overflowing Praises.

    The foundation for experiencing Joyful Sound in the Year had been laid. For as many as keyed into those past 4 months messages will experience greater Sound of Joy this year in Jesus name.

    For the rest, God will not forget you. I pray that you will be blessed greatly and that this year theme, will be a reality in your lives in Jesus name.

    I want to start by defining what Joyful Sound is all about. And then peruse the verse where the theme is taking from. If I have more time today, I will start by letting us know how we can key into and benefit from this year’s theme.

    Is anyone ready in the house? If you are ready to go, let me have your loud AMEN!

    MESSAGE OUTLINE:

    1. WHAT IS JOYFUL SOUND:

    Sound – Noise, Echo, Jingle – it could be coarse, unpleasant, disturbing etc.

    Joyful – Wonderful, Pleasurable, Enjoyable, Pleasant

    So when you sing, “The joy of the Lord is my strength…” You are making a joyful sound. Unlike when you turn up the volume of your gramophone and your entire neighborhood is vibrating, you are no longer making a Joyful Sound.

    1. THE THEME EXPLAINED: Ps. 89: 15-16

    Lev. 25: 9“Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; in the Day of Atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.”

    v  The sound of trumpets proclaimed the beginning of the universal redemption in Israel. All prisoners and captives obtained their liberties, slaves were declared free, and debtors were absolved. The land, as on the Sabbatic year, was neither sowed nor reaped, but allowed to enjoy with its inhabitants a Sabbath of repose; and its natural produce was the common property of all. Moreover, every inheritance throughout the land of Judea was restored to its original owner.—Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary

    v  So people are always waiting for this year to come – A year when whatsoever you had lost shall be restored; a year where prisoners are set free; and many other heartwarming news. Blessed are the people who enjoy such benevolences of God.

    v  So when the Psalmist says, “Blessed are the people who knows…,” he was referring to the people who experience; those who taste; those affected by the Jubilee. I pray someone here will experience Jubilee this year in the name of Jesus.

    v  It is not just a matter of hearing “Joyful Sound”. Everyone who has hears can hear all manner of sounds including disturbing, coarse, noise. BUT,

    v  Only those who are God’s people can know the Joyful Sound

    v  This is the reason I said, God had used the previous months to prepare us for a glorious year 2013. And so shall it be in Jesus mighty name.

    1. HOW CAN I KEY INTO THE THEME:

    -         Brethren, the entrance into this theme for the year is found in Psalm 16.

    -         Psalm 16: 11 – The Psalmist says, “At thy presence is fullness of Joy …”

    -         From verse 8 the psalmist seems to set a standard for hearing, and enjoying God’s abundance, hear himI have set the Lord always before me: 4ce because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore (1) my heart is glad, and (2) my glory rejoiceth: and (3) my flesh also shall rest in hope. Psalms 16:8-9 (KJV)

    -         Do you want to key into this theme for the year, then practice the presence of God.

    KINGDOM RELEVANT IN ACTIVE SERVICE

    In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. 4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. 6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. Isaiah 6:1-8 (KJV)

    TO be Kingdom Relevant, every thing representing king Uzziah in our lives must die. Until king Uzziah died, the prophet of God, Isaiah was his usual self, dining and wining away the anointing of God on his life.

    Isaiah eventually saw himself and who he was; the response was terrific. He was ready to go; he was ready to be relevant to the service of God. He could not do otherwise. From that moment onward, his desire was to do and do the service. What about you? Have you heard the call? Are you His child? What is your ambition? What has taking up your heart? What has occupied you will eventually decide your ultimate in life! You cannot rise above the limit you can see? In this year of Glorious Lifting therefore, we must be occupied with what Jesus wants us to do. It is in doing that He will raise us up spiritually, physically, financially, educationally, emotionally, matrimonially, socially etc. etc.

    Isaiah heard the voice of the Lord, and he says, “Here am I send me”.

    In the parable of the two sons, Matthew 21: 28-32, Jesus spoke plainly to the Pharisees and made them to condemn themselves with their own mouth. The whole human races is like children whom the Lord has brought up, but have rebelled against him, only some are more plausible/reasonable/credible in their disobedience than others. And it often happens that the daring rebel is brought to repentance and becomes the Lord’s servant, while the formalist grows hardened in pride and enmity. That pictures the church. It reminds me again of the saying of the Master, in Luke 18: 8, “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” There are so many formalists in the church today. Many have become status symbol in church today that nothing moves them again. Many have become so familiar with the church that they do not know when God had moved. They thought God is still where they met Him not knowing He has moved.  God is not static. God is Spirit and spirits don’t stay in one place. If He had spoken to you and you refuse to bulge, He sets you aside and looks for another. When you are ready and comeback to Him, He will look for His second best and give to you. Meanwhile you have lost His best for your life. Many are in church today for what they will eat and drink. “Go and work for me,” the Master says, “I will go sir”, but they will sit down. Let me enjoy myself a little. They see others doing it rightly as their enemies. “Your own is too much self” they say! May the Lord have mercy on us who are still in that category in Jesus name.

    Brethren, to have Glorious Lifting, we must be relevant in active service unto the Lord. God always pay according to His agreement with us! He will reward you in accordance with His promise. God bless you.

    FROM SHAME TO HONOUR – GLORIOUS LIFTING! (1)

    “But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory (making us conquerors all times) through our Lord Jesus Christ.” – 1 Cor. 15: 57 (Amplified)

    This year, we are moving from shame to double honour; from poverty to prosperity; from fruitlessness to fruitfulness; from sorrow and anguish to joy and laughter; from I don’t have, to I am giving out; from slavery to freedom, we shall reign, we shall be exalted because it is our Year of Glorious Lifting. Your dreams shall be fulfilled; your expectations shall not be cut short; your head shall not lack oil; your barrel of flour shall not dry; you shall be highly lifted; you will not die before your miracles; the zeal of the Lord of Host shall perform it in the name of Jesus.

    God is going to accelerate the fulfillment of all He has promised to do for us in this Glorious year in Jesus name. This year is the 12th year after the change of millennium – 12 connotes a lot for the Children of Israel and if you believe you are part of that commonwealth of the Nation of Israel it will work for you in Jesus name. Why did God choose to have 12 tribes of Israel; even 12 tribes of Ishmael; the first encounter in the wilderness after the children of God left Egypt was with 12 wells of water? Why did God choose 12 as a repeated figure while dealing with His people? As the year connotes there will be full Government of God in our lives this year as well as our nation Nigeria in Jesus name.

    But first, how did David do it? How was he able to be lifted from a shepherd boy to a king in Israel; to a warrior per excellent? Can we learn from his life to get to know how the lifting of God could be possible? His own was a rapid accelerated lifting; from an isolated bush boy to an anointed king over God’s people; from a forgotten not for good shepherd boy to a conqueror whose praise was sang by grown up women in the society; from a fugitive in his own country to a celebrated ruler, king over millions. How did he do it? What was his strategy? Can we learn anything from his life?

    “And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: …” Psalms 40:3 (KJV)

    David was an embodiment of praise and thanksgiving. Little wonder he was chosen as a man after God’s heart. God inhabits the life of a man of praise because God Himself is PRAISE! When you praise God you are only showing Who He is. The Psalmist enjoins us to praise God with all manner of instruments of worship and praise – “Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. … Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath … Praise ye the Lord”. Psalms 150:1-6

    A praise time cannot go unnoticed by Jehovah. The revelation on the mount of Patmos helped us to know what the Elders and Angels of God are doing presently – “And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: … And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: … Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. … saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever”. Rev 5:9-14.

    This is our year of Glorious Lifting and King David said, He brought me out of the miry clay and set my feet on the Rock. God is the only One that could have accomplished this fit in the life of His servant David.

    That was why Apostle Paul said in 1 Cor 15:57 (NKJV), “But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

    This year is a Leap year and like any other leap year, 2012 has so many disasters, deaths, perplexities, confusion, puzzles, etc but because you are a child of God, by the power and promise of God you are not only guaranteed the protection but resounding victories of God over all the devices and manipulations of the enemy.  Therefore there is:-

    1. Complete Victory for you over sin – (Rom 6: 18; 8:1; John 8:36).
    2. Complete Victory over sicknesses and diseases (Isaiah 53: 10; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2: 24)
    3. Complete Victory for you over death – ( 1 Cor. 15:54-57)
    4. Complete Victory over poverty and penury – Deut. 28: 2-14; Psalm 35:27; 3 John 2)
    5. Complete Victory over religion and routines – (Mk 10:17-21; John 8: 32-36)
    6. Complete Victory over tradition and addiction – (Mk 10:17-21)
    7. Complete victory  for you over your past failures, shortcomings,  reproach shame, defeats  debts and dishonor,  etc ( Gen. 21:6;  Luke 1:25)

    Brothers and sisters, there is total and complete victory for you in Jesus. But for us to enjoy this victory, we need complete obedience to His will.

    And what is the will of God for our lives? It is but to walk with Him in total obedience!

    It is well with you; let us meet again at the next edition. Till then, Keep on flying the flag of Jesus and remain rapturable.

    Yours, because He lives, your Pastor,

    -         Johnson A. Noiki

    TOPIC: OUR MONTH OF GOD’S GREATNESS

    TEXTS: Gen. 26: 13-14; Gen. 37-39; James 4: 7-17;

    INTRODUCTION:

    Throughout this year God has promised He will show Himself Mighty in our affairs.  Brethren, we cannot go through this year without His presence.  Man was created in God’s image to be great just as our God. He created man to be like Him; to have dominion and have control over all His creation and to subdue them.  Abraham was great, Isaac was, despite the myriads of challenges and tribulations they experienced. It was recorded of Isaac that He waxed great and continued to increase in greatness until he became very great – Genesis 26: 13-14. Jabesh though born poor and in great sorrow, turned to God and God made him great in life 1 Chronicles 4: 9-10.

    Let us today discuss some keys to all round greatness.

    SUBMIT (TO GOD) 2 Chronicles 7: 14; Job 22: 28-29; James 4: 6-10

    The need to submit to God: We must first submit our life to God unreservedly. God is the Creator of everything according to Genesis chapter one. A life outside God can never be great. Abraham submitted to God and taught his son Isaac to follow by his experience on Mount of the Lord in the land of Moriah. When we submit our lives, it becomes simple to submit every other thing. We must submit our possessions; our money; our business proposals, plans and fully trust God in full obedience to take us to higher ground. If we do, surely God is more than able to make us great and increase our greatness just as He did for Isaac who obeyed Him by staying in Gerar instead of going down to Egypt. Remember, Egypt symbolizes slavery, hardship and death. Moreover, Jesus Christ submitted to God and the bible says, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”. Phil 2:5-11 (NKJV)

     

    RESIST (THE DEVIL): James 4: 7; 1 Tim. 6: 6-12; 1 Th. 5: 22; Gen 39: 12

    We must resist the devil if we want to be great. The devil does not want any thing good to come our way talk less of making us great; however many run to the devil for greatness. History has taught us that when satan gives you One Naira, he takes back One Hundred.  Run away from sin and do not compromise your faith. Joseph was carrying a precious seed of the dream he had before he was sold into slavery. He had the opportunity of becoming rich by just committing immoral acts with Potiphar’s wife – Gen 39: 11-12, but he chose to run away from the sin that could have ruined his dreams. The devil is a liar we must therefore resist all his lies. Brother James said Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7 (KJV)

    Do not speak evil of others. Resist the temptation to speak evil of your brethren or even other people. Speaking evil of others can ground your greatness. Moreover that person you are speaking evil about is created in the image of God. You are not only to resist evil, you are to resist falling into temptation. No matter what you do and who you are – student, scholar, businessman or businesswoman, clergy, government worker, pepper seller, road side mechanic, politician – whatever you do, there is always temptation waiting at the corner. Refuse to bow to all manner of unrighteousness that has become the order of day in our generation. Do not enjoy a season of sin only to have sold out your birthright. Your birthright brother is greatness; for you are created in the image of God.

    HAVE (A PLAN):  Gen. 11: 2-6; Gen 40: 6-14,15; Luke 14: 28

    Of course to be great in life, you must consciously have a plan towards your greatness. If you fail to plan, then you have only ‘planned to fail’. The experience of the Tower of Babel was amazing. The people had a plan – make bricks, built city and a tower, cover with asphalt so that the bricks will not disintegrate with time and weather. When God looked down, “He said Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do” (Emphasis mine) Gen 11:6 (KJV): In others words, with this plans, their greatness cannot be stopped. Where is your plan for life? Many Christians do not have plans. There is great need to prayerfully consider plans for your tomorrow. God holds our tomorrow but we need a road map. Commit this plan and your desires to God’s hand and keep the vision alive by focusing on God over your plans prayerfully. You are not far from your greatness for Philippians 2:13 (KJV) says,For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.”

    I know there are several keys but work on these three and you will experience Ever-Increasing Greatness in your life forever.

     

     

    PRAYERS 

    • O Lord, as darkness gives up before light, let all my difficulties to greatness give up before me in Jesus name.
