SECRET WORSHIP

“At midnight I will rise to give thanks to You,

Because of Your righteous judgments.”

– Psalm 119:62

David gave truthful Worship from the depth of his soul.

What does your devotion consist of this morning? Is it full of thanksgiving and praise in the honour of God? Is it Worship that praises God simply for who He is, and not just for his benefits? Let us remember to offer thanksgiving and praises and worship that honours God on a continual basis.

I encourage you this hour to offer up “Secret Worship” where nobody sees you. Worship offered in the secret recess of your room. Worship that is just between you and God.

🔥THE TRUE BELIEVERS🔥

True sons and daughters

Whoever receives Christ in their heart is a child of God. This is why the term “believer” or “child of God” is preferred to the term “Christian”. For many, the term “Christian” is just a name they tick while filling out a form. For others, it is a term they grew up using; they were born into a family that used the term or they grew up in a predominantly Christian nation. It is possible for a person to grow up using the term “Christian” without having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

It may surprise many that there are people who believe in Jesus Christ and believe that He is the Son of God, yet do not call themselves Christians. Merely calling/naming oneself a “Christian”, ticking a box, does not equate to being a child of God. Church membership, the multitude of good works or being good does not mean you are a son or daughter of God.

As many as received Him”- John 1:12

Whoever receives Jesus Christ, whoever believes in His name: He gives the right to become a child of God. Whether Pharisee, Sadducee, learned, unlearned, male or female, to them He gave the privilege of sonship to God.

Who are those adopted into God’s family?

The family a person is born into does not qualify them as a “son of God.” The Church a person attends does not qualify them as a “son of God.” Only those who have become born again (they have received the new-birth) have been re-born into |God’s family. Only those who have been adopted into God”s family, can be called a true son or daughter of God. To them, He has given power to become a “son of God.”

You become a child of God by faith in Jesus Christ alone (Galatians 3:26).

Whoever believes that Jesus is Christ, is born of God (1John 5:1). There is no sonship to God without living faith in Christ. Those who believe in the son of God are the true sons and daughters of God.

Come boldly before His throne of grace today. Receive Jesus Christ, accept Him with a willing heart today. Take Him as your personal Lord and saviour. . Rejoice and again I say, Rejoice!

RETURN TO GOD – 2 CHRONICLES 7:14

Living at ease, in prosperity, with peaceable conditions can encourage spiritual complacency. When King Solomon presented the Temple before God, these were the conditions under which God promised King Solomon the nation of Israel would either be blessed or punished, (2 Chronicles 7:14). If my:

1. “People who are called by my name”

2. “Will humble themselves”

3. “Pray and seek my face”

4. “Turn from their wicked ways…”

God’s promise of gracious providence and tender affection was based on the condition of the people’s obedience.

God said,

1. “Then I will hear from Heaven”

2. “Forgive sin” and

3. “Heal the land.”

To pray and seek God’s face is essential for a nation to prosper, be at peace and be successful. The Lord has promised to “open” his eyes and “hear” prayers that are earnestly made to him (2 Chronicles 7:15).

The fact is that God permits bad things to happen on the earth to bring attention to sin. God will, “shut up the Heavens,” there will be no rain or He will command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among His people” (2 Chronicles 7:13).

When God’s people come in sincere repentance towards Him and earnestly seek His face, it causes His hand to move. Restoration and revival are promised when the people return to God and completely submit to His divine authority. Self-works and stubborn wills collide with the things of the Spirit. Faithfulness and obedience are found where hearts are truly repentant and submitted to God.

I would like to encourage you this hour, Child of God, to never grow tired or weary of seeking God’s face. Repent of your sins, and return to God. The Lord sits on a high and exalted throne which has not been made with human hands. God’s Love is unconditional.

You can approach God’s throne of grace with confidence. In God’s presence, you will find mercy, grace and help which is desperately needed at this moment in time.

In Christ, you have an Advocate, who pleads your case before God’s throne, an Intercessor, who intercedes, daily, on your behalf.

In this time of grace, seek the Lord while He may be found: call on Him while He is near (Isaiah 55:6).

Testings and Trials in the Christian Race.

Having endured so much in the past, will you now turn back?

Christians all over the world, both in the past and present, have endured so much persecution because of their faith. (It was the desire of the Writer of the Hebrews to encourage the Early Jewish Christians). If you have faith in Christ, I want you to be encouraged today. Whatever persecution you are going through, I want you to remember that you have not gone through it in vain. God has promised to reward you with the Crown of Life, the everlasting Crown of Glory, Amen.

Do not be afraid of what is to come. Rather, let the sufferings and persecutions increase your faith. Be patient to do God’s will. God has promised to reward you. God will give you the grace to ENDURE. We know about what is coming on this earth because of what the Bible says. These are the last days. Always remember that your perseverance is not in vain.

Pray for Nigeria

Urgent Prayers for Nigeria

On Saturday the 23rd of June, armed Fulani Herdsmen carried out an attack on local Farmers in Plateau State. Plateau state is found in the central part of Nigeria. Scores of innocent people were savagely butchered.

This is a current theme in Nigeria, where Fulani Herdsmen will invade land belonging to others and murder families, including babies, burn their houses to the ground and displace whole communities, if their cows are not allowed to graze on the land.

In reality, Nigeria is under siege, as these herdsmen invade farmlands and villages all over Nigeria with impunity. They murder and displace communities at will. Many of the horror stories and accounts of survivors are beyond human imagination.

At present, there are hundreds of thousands of indigenously displaced people, living in camps all over Nigeria, as a result of these herdsmen invasions and blood-letting.

Many of the atrocities; the killings, rape, burning down of homes and scattering communities, carried out by the Fulani herdsmen are neither documented or reported by main stream media.

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

2 Chronicles 7:14

Prayers:

⁃ Pray God will intervene and hear the cries of the invaded communities all over Nigeria.

⁃ Pray God’s protection over the all communities with farmlands in Nigeria.

⁃ Pray the Government will arise and protect its citizens from these invading herdsmen.

⁃ Pray the retaliatory acts by both herdsmen and farmers will cease.

⁃ Pray the blood-shed across Nigeria will come to an end.

– Pray God will position His guardian angels over the porous borders of Nigeria.

⁃ Pray for the Salvation of Souls.

⁃ Pray God will reveal and give understanding to the full-scale of what is happening across Nigeria.

⁃ Amen.

Not Without Hope

Not without Hope

You are not without Hope if you have made Christ your Saviour. Think about it, who will save you, who can you talk to? Who will uphold you in these trying times?

It is Jesus Christ.

 Be patient in your difficulties.

You will never sink under pressure or trials when your hope is placed in Christ. The circumstances or trials you face will not be magnified in your eyes because you know that you will come out of it with victory.

Keep Marching Soldier

Persevere and keep going strong in the place of Prayer, in fact, pray without ceasing, be diligent opinion it. There is such an assurance in knowing Christ is firmly by your side. The good Lord is on your side.

An avoidable TRADEGY

THE TRAGEDY GRENFELL TOWER:

Seventy- two people lost their lives, met their untimely deaths, in a 24 storey building tower block fire, ( Grenfell Tower, UK), today the 14th of June, exactly one year ago.

It all started when a faulty fridge-freezer on the fourth floor caught fire. The fire spread rapidly, consuming the whole building, destroying many lives and destinies.

In reality, the real fire started when cheap pre-fabricated material was used to renovate an already decrepit building. Cladding an old building with very fancy, but dangerous building materials, to catch the eye, was given more importance than the human lives that lived within the building.

Human-beings, made by Almighty God; made in God’s image: Men, Women, Children, Aunties, Uncles, Cousins, Daughters, Sons, Grand-Parents, Cousins, Babies all perished senselessly, on the account of the keeping up the shiny external appearance of a dilapidated building, already in disrepair.

How much energy do you give to keeping up external appearances to the detriment of your life, even your soul? Would you rather spend millions of pounds, spend hours and hours of time and energy on what has no benefit to your soul? Are you wasting time building an edifice that will eventually fall? This can be applied to every area of life. It’s something to think about…think about it.

Right now, let us say a word of prayer for the families of those who were killed in the Grenfell Tower fire: May God Comfort them, may they have all the support and care they need at this time, may God wipe the tears of those who mourn and heal their pain, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Guard your Soul

Eternal Rest

God’s resting place will be excellent, heavenly and glorious (Isaiah 11:10). There is a promised place of rest. In this place there will be a greater glory, far greater than the tabernacles and ordinances of the past.

“Let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it.” Be careful to resist what is harmful to your soul. Remember what your Father in Heaven has promised you.

The gospel shall be preached in all nations. The Jews, as well as the Gentiles, shall receive God’s Word and believe in the Messiah. A chosen people shall rejoice in the promises of God.

Injustice Unchecked

Many years ago, I heard the story of rich man who got away with killing each of the several wives he married.

He reversed his car over his first wife, threw the second wife out of a window, strangled the third wife and drowned the fourth wife. None of the women received justice for the Rich man’s actions.

Despite the Rich man’s history of murder, he carried on with marrying and killing women with impunity. No one questioned or queried his actions, because of his wealthy status and high standing in society. It was over-looked. In some cases, the women who objected to being married to this fellow, were forced into it by friends and society, because of the rich man’s riches.

Greed is defined as a selfish and intense desire for something. When greed is allowed to overtake principles, it rips lives apart. Societies, homes, communities and even nations are destroyed, when eyes are closed and voices kept silent and mute against injustice.

Injustice must be challenged, regardless of the status of the perpetrator. Those who continue to carry out actions of injustice must be STOPPED, and not encouraged. It is the covetous heart; the gutted soul, that will keep silent in the face of injustice.
