LESSON IN OBEDIENCE PART 1 – WHATSOEVER HE SAYETH ONTO YOU, DO IT

Text: Jn.21-5; Lk.6:46; Mal. 1: 6-8; 1Jn. 5: 4; Acts 17:28; Ps. 138:8

Our obedience to God must be total, exclusive and specific. Such obedience that is immediate and complete brings about supernatural intervention/provision, wonderful transformation and significant revelation.

Obedience to God is very critical because whatever He says to us is the revelation of His will for our individual lives.

THE HOLY IN YOU PART 4– HOW TO OPEN UP TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

Text: 1Jn. 2:1; He. 6:4-5; Ro. 5:1-5

Holy Spirit is our helper and our advocate on earth as children of God. It is not possible to live a successful Christian life or obey the supreme laws of God or live a holy life without the help of the Holy Spirit.

It is also the power of the Holy Spirit that energizes the Word of God to bring forth a performance.

THE HOLY IN YOU PART 3– HOLY SPIRIT AT PENTICOST

Text: Lu. 24:49; Acts 1:4; Jn. 20:19-22; Ro. 10:9; jn.7:39; 1Cor.3:16

All who are born again at first, receive the newness of life by the breadth of the Holy Spirit – ‘The in-breadth Spirit’.

There is then the infilling of the Holy Spirit, a promise of the Father, to all who believe in Jesus Christ, such as was experienced on the day of Pentecost – ‘The out-poured Spirit’. There is need for the regular in-filling of the Holy Spirit in order to operate in the power of God as a believer in Christ.

PRAYER CHANGES THINGS PART 5 – TO WHOM DO YOU PRAY?

Text: Ps. 106:13-15

It is imperative to know God and have a relationship with Him in order to render prayers to Him acceptably.

If prayers must be effective, it must not center on lustful desires but be in accordance to God’s will. It is also important to avoid errors of forgetfulness and impatience when directing prayers to God.

Unbelief, self- reliance and tiredness are the backbone of prayerlessness, while sin is the main hindrance to payers.

PRAYER CHANGES THINGS PART 4 -THE LORD’S PRAYER, A MODEL

Text: Lk. 11:1; Mt. 6:9- 15; He. 12:15

The popular Lord’s prayer is a model of prayers that Jesus Christ provided for those who follow him. This model of prayer was not intended to be taken as a prayer by itself per say; rather, it was to be a pattern / guide to prayers.

To pray aright, there is need to understand that those who have been saved through Christ are expected to commit their lives to the  fulfillment of God’s purpose.

PRAYER CHANGES THINGS PART 2 – IN THE NAME OF JESUS AND FOR HIS SAKE

Text: 1 Thes. 5:17-18; Jn. 7:17; Jn. 14:6; 1Jn. 5:14-15; Ep. 4:32

Every prayer directed to God must be in the name and for the sake Jesus. God is glorified by such prayers.

This implies that our prayer, apart from being continuous; must encompass all that the name of Jesus represents.

Text: 1 Pe.5: 6-11; Ex. 4: 1-4, 17; Ex. 7:8 – 12; 2 Ti.3 :8-9; Is. 66:2

All of satanic forces are directed towards getting us to make the wrong confession.

Prayer of proclamation involves declaring the word of God out loud.

PRAYER CHANGES THINGS PART I

Text: Mt.6:9-14; Ro. 8:26- 27; 1Jn. 5:14-15

Prayer is an act of worship by which we offer our praises and thanksgiving to God and then bring our request before Him. It is fellowship with God through Jesus Christ expressed in worship, in adoration and in thanksgiving; it is the only way by which we draw near to God and God draws near to us.

The Holy Spirit plays a vital role in stimulating and guiding our prayer life.

LIVING IN THE SPIRIT PART 4 – BRAND (MARK) BEARING

Text: Gal. 6:11-17; He. 13:11-13; 1Pe. 4:14-15

As believers, our willingness to crucify the flesh and be subject to the Holy Spirit enables us to operate as sons of God that we are.

The marks of Jesus Christ that Christians are expected to bear are real and not superficial; they are products of reproaches borne for Christ ‘outside the camp’.

LIVING IN THE SPIRIT PART 3 – SEED BEARING

Text Gal.6: 7-9; He. 12:22-24; Ps. 126: 1-6; Mt 21:44; Jn. 12:24

 

There is a due season of reaping for every seed sown.

Fruit produced by the Holy Spirit in the life of believers nourishes souls, but the seed must be planted for propagation of the fruit. Usually, sowing is accompanied with tears but the harvest is always joyous.

In a believer, the flesh entombs the Spirit of God. Therefore, the power of the Holy Spirit within a believer becomes manifest only in lives of those who die to the flesh. To die to flesh, there is  need to be broken by the Word of God.

LIVING IN THE SPIRIT PART 1 – FRUIT BEARING

Text: Gal 5:24-25, 22-23; Jn. 15:1-5

The first of the four-fold picture of living in the Spirit is ‘Fruit bearing’. Every fruit is seed bearing, and every seed produces after it’s own kind.

Fruit bearing means Christ –likeness. Flesh produces works of the flesh but the Spirit produces Fruit. As believers, we are called to bear Fruit by subjecting ourselves to the Holy Spirit who produces His Fruit in us.

THE TRAGEDY OF UNBELIEF – PART 3

Text : He. 3: 12; Nu. 11:21-22; Mt. 11: 2-

Any heart that habours unbelief has the tendency to depart from the Lord.

In our Christian journey, when unbelief creeps in, we must always turn our decisions over to God no matter the circumstance or situation; our position must always be – ‘nevertheless, not my will, but your will be done’.

Unbelief is the blindness of man to the glory of God of Heaven by the god of this world.

THE TRAGEDY OF UNBELIEF – PART 2

Text: He. 3:7-19

Whenever the gospel is preached, it always provokes one of two reactions in the hearts of hearers– conviction of sins or anger. Anger is evidence of rebellion against the word of God and the mark of unbelief.

THE TRAGEDY OF UNBELIEF – PART 1

TEXT: He. 3:12; Re. 21:8; Acts 2: 37-38; Acts 5:29-33

Unbelief is the lack of faith and trust in God that finds expression in disobedience and rebellion. It is tragic when believers are plagued by unbelief because it translates into an evil heart that causes departure from the living God.

Text: Mt. 16:24-26; Mk.8: 34-37: Lk.9: 23-25; Phil. 2:5-9; Mt. 26: 36- 44

Our personal cross is distinct from our burden. Usually, our burdens leave no room for choices, but every individual has the choice to deny or take up own cross. Our personal cross is a place of decision where we choose either to obey God’s will or assert our own will.

Text: Le. 17:11; Ro. 5:11: Mt. 16: 24-26: Mk.8: 34-37; Lk.9:23-25; 1Pe.2:11

God, through Jesus Christ, has put everything in place for the salvation of our souls. Jesus came that our souls may be saved, so all that is required of us is that we follow the instructions laid down in the word of God in order to enter into the experience of our salvation already completed in Christ.

SALVATION OF THE SOUL PART 1

Text: 1Thes. 5:23; Ep. 2:8-9; Tit.3: 4

A man is a living soul that has a spirit and lives in a body. God has put in place provisions for all that constitutes man i.e. the spirit, the soul and the body; to be saved.

At rebirth, the spirit is quickened, regenerated- saved by grace through faith. The spirit of man must be regenerated for his soul to be saved because the whole essence of Christianity is the salvation of the soul. The body will be redeemed at the end of time purely by the act of God.

THE CHRISTIAN LIFE A BUILDING PART 4 – THANKSGIVING

1Thes.5:18; Jn10:35; Ge. 1: 3-4, 10, 12; 2 Cor. 9:6- 12

A believer must be willing to obey the revealed will of God as contained in the Scriptures if he/she expects additional revelation of “word of God” (i.e. word of God not contained in the scriptures) .

Thanksgiving is the expression of our dependence upon God and gratitude to Him for His kindness and manifold blessings.

Giving is an expression of thanksgiving to God. The righteousness of a generous and cheerful giver remains forever.

Text: Jas. 1:2-4; 12; Ps. 119:65-71; 2Cor. 4:17-18; He. 11:23; 1Ti. 6:6-11

A believer is called to endure afflictions, trials and tribulations allowed by God. Such afflictions, seen through the eye of faith, are light, momentary and work for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. We are able to endure such afflictions by focusing on eternal things through the eye of faith as well.
