WE’VE GOT TO PREACH IT

In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie,promised before the world began; But hath in due timesmanifested his word through preaching, which iscommitted unto me according to the commandment ofGod our Saviour_ *(Titus 1:2-3).

We’ve got to preach the Word; we’ve got to tell the untold, orthey’ll never have the chance to believe it and be saved. Romans 10:13-14 says, *“For whosoever shall call upon the name ofthe Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whomthey have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whomthey have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?”*

Without a preacher, they can’t hear the Gospel. This is why we’re compelled to preach the Gospel everywhere. The Apostle Paul said, *“ForI am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek”* (Romans 1:16).

There’s no salvation without the Gospel. The power of God to bring someone out of trouble, distress, sin and death is in the Gospel of Christ. We read in our theme verse that God promised eternal life before the world began; and now, He has fulfilled His promise, manifested His Word, and made eternal life available through the preaching of the Gospel.

See how blessed we are to be the custodians and bearers of thedivine order; ambassadors of divine realities! They’re not going to get the Gospel any other way, until we preach it to them. Put your whole life intothis, as it’s all that truly matters. Ensure the Gospel gets to as many ashave been ordained to receive it in your world and in the regions beyond.

CONFESSION

I’m an ambassador of Christ in the Gospel. I’m fervent for the Lord, vibrant, exuberant and aglow in the spirit always, serving Him withmy whole heart, soul and mind. Through me, the Gospel is reachingmany who have been ordained for salvation; they’re transferredfrom darkness into the glorious liberty of the sons of God.Hallelujah!_

1 Corinthians 1:18* For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Acts 4:12* Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Matthew 28:19-20* Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: *20* Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.

[12/14, 5:44 AM] faithemm2015: *LIFE AND FAVOUR*
FROM:

*Rev, Anthony Akinmoyo,*

*STAY BELIEVING*

Luke 1:45 (KJV)
*And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.*

It is our faith that converts the sent word (sure word of prophecy) to reality. We have been receiving diverse words of prophecies from the beginning of the year as touching our shifting and lifting into greatness and honour.

I want us to know that God’s part of this deal is sure but these sent words must be met with corresponding action to prove that what we have received is equally believed. We need to be speaking of our next level and new phase to cause the prevailing power to work in us and in our affairs.

Hebrews 4:1-2 (KJV)
[1] *Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.*
[2] *For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.*

Beloved, you have heard that God is a shifter and lifter of men. He said this is our season of lifting and shifting, so rest upon these words.

1 Chronicles 29:12 (KJV) *Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.*

2 Chronicles 32:8 (KJV)
*With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.*

The hard truth is God will not manifest His greatness to anyone who can’t believe and trust Him.

Deuteronomy 32:20 (KJV)
*And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.*

Beloved, be expectant, full of hope, it will not be long, the glory and beauty of the Almighty will be manifesting in your life and your testimony will draw multitude to the Lord in the mighty name of Jesus!

Never be discouraged. He is working out your miracles.

*PRAYERS:*

> Thank you my heavenly Father for another day you have made.

> Thank you my God for your mercies and loving kindness towards me and my family.

> Thank you my Lord for your wonderful plan for my life.

> Thank you my Lord for shifting and lifting me into a higher height.

1. Ezekiel 11:19-20 (KJV)
[19] *And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:*
[20] *That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.*

i. O Lord my God, remove from me a stony heart of doubt and unbelief in the mighty name of Jesus!

ii. O Lord my God, put your Spirit in me and grant me an heart of flesh to put my trust in your promises in the mighty name of Jesus!

2. Galatians 6:9 (KJV) *And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.*

O Lord my God, grant me grace to be stedfast in my waiting season in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!

4. Isaiah 60:22 (KJV)
*A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time.*

ii. O Lord my God, let my life continually be a testimony of your greatness in the mighty name of Jesus!

5. Zechariah 4:7 (KJV)
*Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain…*

I decree and declare, every mountain between me and my prepared place of blessing and honour crumble in the mighty name of Jesus!

6. Isaiah 5:27 (KJV)
*None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:*

I decree and declare, I will not be weary in my journey to destiny fulfillment in the mighty name of Jesus!

7. Isaiah 54:3 (KJV)
*For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.*

O Lord my God, carry out your breaking forth agenda in my life in the mighty name of Jesus!

8. 1 Samuel 10:3-4 (KJV)
[3] *Then shalt thou go on forward from thence …. and there shall meet thee three men going up to God to Beth-el,…*
[4] *And they will salute thee, and give thee two loaves of bread; which thou shalt receive of their hands.*

i. In the mighty name of Jesus, I receive the ministry of my destiny helpers.

9. Revelation 12:15-16 (KJV)
[15] *And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.*
[16] *And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.*

Where human helpers cannot reach, I command the elements of creation to help me in the mighty name of Jesus!

10. Leviticus 26:6 (KJV) *And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.*

i. O Lord my God, grant us peace by all means in our nation and cause evil beasts to cease from our land in the mighty name of Jesus!

ii. O Lord our God, shake away all bad leaders from every level of our government in the mighty name of Jesus!

11. Psalm 33:10 (KJV)
*The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.*

O Lord my Father, frustrate the counsel of the wicked concerning my life and family in the mighty name of Jesus!

Thank you Father for working exceedingly and abundantly above all that I ask or think.

Receive my thanks and praise in the mighty name of Jesus!

See you tomorrow.
*Rejoice evermore.*
*Pray without ceasing.*
1 Thessalonians 5:16-17 (KJV)

[12/14, 5:44 AM] faithemm2015: WISDOM FOR THE DAY
Monday, 14th December, 2020

BE SENSITIVE TO GOD

“The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” John 1:29 (KJV)

It is very important that your eyes are opened and focused on God so that you can recover everything the devil took from you.  The truth is that, if you are not focused, even when God shows up in your bedroom, you will still be struggling with it. The Bible tells us in Psalm 103:7 that God “…. made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel”.(KJV) In spite of being in church for a long time, many believers don’t know the ways of God.

When Jesus came in the flesh, he was like every other human being in that neighbourhood. He came to where John was ministering and stood there among those who John was to baptize like every other person. I am sure that some people must have even elbowed him and pushed him aside to get to the front. Even John did not know who he was. But as he was baptizing, I guess that he lifted up his eyes to clean out the sweat from his brow and he looked, and something caught his attention. This is because he had been told that on who you see the dove descending; that is the man. As he raised up his head among the crowd right there, he pointed: behold the lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world.

If you are going to be at the cutting edge in life, you must be very sensitive to what God is saying at every point in time. Many of us have missed it just because we lost sight of the ways of God. Many have missed their moments of visitation because they were not sensitive to what God is saying.
Pointing out Jesus as the lamb of God was the defining moment in the ministry of John the Baptist. He was not carried away by the crowd who were all there because of him and not Jesus. He kept faith with the Word.
