*THEME: JESUS STILL HEALS*

*MEMORISE:*
And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.
Acts 3:8

*Bible eading: John 9:1-7*
1And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

*MESSAGE*
Healing is the restoration of the body, mind or spirit to a state of wholeness and wellbeing. This restoration may be physical, as in the forgiveness of sins and justification before God. Ultimately, healing is embodied by Jesus Christ, who is the Great healer. He healed different sickness during His earthly ministry, and secured the ultimate healing for all through His death on the cross and subsequent resurrection. Although most healing experience in the Bible were instantaneous, God sometimes heals slowly or gradually over a period of time. In such cases, there is visible steady progress towards full health. Even if a person’s healing is gradual, it is till God who does the healing, and He should be given the glory.

Nevertheless, God still carries out instantaneous healing today. Most Christians today should have heard or witnessed at least one story of how God healed a person at once. Although some don’t believe this is possible, I am happy to announce to you that by the grace of God, instantaneous healings occur daily in The Redeemed Christian Church of God. We have witnessed numerous testimonies of how God instantly healed people of different sicknesses and disease, ranging from simple bacterial infections to reproductive ailments, mental and psychological problems, life threatening sicknesses and terminal diseases. We have even witnessed several cases of the dead being raised back to life and several other seemingly impossible miracles in many of our parishes around the world. Praise God! We are experiencing these great healings because we believe in the power of the Almighty God to perform miracles, signs and wonders today. We are driven by faith in His word in Hebrews 13:8, which says:

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

We believe that what Jesus Christ did when He was physically here on earth, He is still able to do today. Indeed, God has the capacity to heal everyone who comes to Him for healing, and He is also able to heal them completely. Testifying to this, Matthew 8:16 says:

“When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:”

Divine healing is the inheritance of every child of God and it is freely accessed by faith. The Bible said it all in Isaiah 53:5- Jesus was wounded for the sins that bring sickness, He was bruised for the iniquities that cause diseases, and He wore the chastisement of our peace like a garment so that by His stripes everyone who believes automatically receives their healing. Hallelujah!

*PRAYER POINT:*
Father, please heal me completely and make me an agent of your healing power, in Jesus’ Name.

*BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:*
Numbers 12-13
Lamentation 1:1-14

*HYMN 7: MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS*
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

Refrain:
On Christ the solid rock I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
On Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness seems to veil His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath His covenant and blood
Support me in the ‘whelming flood:
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

When the last trumpet’s voice shall sound,
O may I then in him be found.
Clothed in his righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before his throne.

TOPIC: UNDERSTANDING OUR HERITAGE IN GOD

SCRIPTURE: Ye are of God,”little children, and have overcome them”: because greater is he that is in you,”than he that is in the world. 1 John 4″:4.

THOUGHT FOR THE SAY: Every child of God carries the seed of Divinity which is the seed of greatness.

The Scripture makes it clear that every child of God has the seed of greatness in them; every Christian has the inherent potential or ability to be great in life (1 John 4:4). In other words,”there is a great destiny in every child of God. 

From our anchor Scripture, we understand that every child of God carries the seed of Divinity which is the seed of greatness. That is to say, as a child of God, you are of God; your root is God, your source is God. And if you are of God, who is great and mighty in all things, it means there is a seed of greatness in you. If the great and mighty God lives in you, then you have a massive destiny to fulfil. So, your root or source, as a Christian, is God.

Now, what is the implication of our root in God, and why is it necessary to claim it? It is because Divinity is the platform for both authority and royalty. Our God is the KING of kings, and the LORD of lords. As Christians, the Seed of God which we carry in us is meant to be the fuel for authority and royalty. Because we belong to God who has the Nature of authority and royalty, and so we don’t beg to live in the realm of authority and royalty. 

Beloved, our nature in God is likened to being born with a silver spoon; a child born into a wealthy family does not struggle to be rich. This is how we are in God; we cannot beg to exist in the realm of authority and dominion. Rather, existence in the realm of authority and dominion is our heritage. Live with this mentality and you shall experience a total revolution in your life.

Remember this”: Every child of God carries the seed of Divinity which is the seed of greatness.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Study the Scriptures continually to know your heritage in God.

2. Walk in the reality of who you are in God.

PRAYER: O Lord I ask that You open my eyes to understand who and what You have made me to be. Help me not to live less than what you have created me to be,”Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE”: UNDERSTANDING AND OVERCOMING THE ENEMIES OF DISTINCTION AND EXCELLENCE.

DAILY READING: 1 Kings 14:1-15:24,”Acts 10″:1-23,”Psalm 133″:1-3,”Proverbs 17″:7-8

AMAZING FACT: The Bible is always the bestselling book of the year. Approximately 100 million Bibles are sold or given away each year. That would be 8 million a month,”270,000 daily, 11,000 per hour, 190 per minute and 3 Bibles per second.

QUOTE”: True spiritual growth is defined by increasing capacity to love what God loves and hate what God hates. Culled from WHO ARE YOU? by Dr Paul Enenche.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: You are stepping into your heritage of royalty and authority in God in this season, in Jesus’ Name.

[6/15, 6:15 AM] 919063: With determination and God’s help you’ll win

Saturday 15th June 2019

‘It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect.’ Psalm 18:32 NKJV

In her autobiography, singer Dolly Parton says: ‘My high school was small, so during graduation each of us got a chance to stand up and announce our plans for the future. “I’m going to junior college,” one boy would say. “I’m getting married and moving to Maryville,” a girl would follow. When my turn came I said, “I’m going to Nashville to become a star.” The entire place erupted in laughter. I was stunned. Somehow, though, that laughter instilled in me an even greater determination to realise my dream. I might have crumbled under the weight of the hardships that were to come, had it not been for the response of the crowd that day. Sometimes it’s funny the way we find inspiration.’

Every hero in Scripture, without exception, overcame obstacles and opposition. David writes: ‘They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my support. He also brought me out into a broad place; he delivered me because he delighted in me… For by you I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; he is a shield to all who trust in him… It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on my high places… For you have armed me with strength for the battle; you have subdued under me those who rose up against me’ (Psalm 18:18-19, 29-30, 32-33, 39 NKJV).
