[10/25, 5:18 AM] Jesus The Fruitful Vine Gospel Mission (Realm Of God): *SEEDS 🥑🥔🌽🍉 OF DESTINY.*
25th October, 2020
Daily Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche.
*TOPIC: THERAPIES FOR REBELLION.*
SCRIPTURE📖: “And the sons of Eliab; Nemuel, and Dathan, and Abiram. This is that Dathan and Abiram, which were famous in the congregation, who strove against Moses and against Aaron in the company of Korah, when they strove against the Lord:” Numbers 26:9
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY🤔: When rebellion begins to raise its ugly head in your life, reject and resist it.
It has been confirmed that rebellion is a killer of destiny. To disregard authority is to lose your destiny. That is why it is important to deal with the spirit of rebellion.
Today, we shall be looking at therapies for rebellion.
To avoid the lifestyle of rebellion, do the following:
*1. Resist the spirit of rebellion.*
Reject the spirit of rebellion. When rebellion begins to raise its ugly head in your life, reject and resist it.
Personally, I believe that God has helped me, and He is still helping me. And I am still begging Him for His help because I have decided not to leave myself without a head or an authority over my life and ministry at any point in time. Hands are being laid on my head by my spiritual cover every year.
*2. Decide to remain under authority (Jer. 3:15).*
Decide to have a listening ear for people in authority. If you look through Scriptures, you will see the stories of people who decided that no one would talk to them, and how they ended in disaster. So, decide to remain under authority.
*3. Avoid the company of the rebellious.*
Dothan, Korah and Abiram rebelled and strove against Moses and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them (Numbers 26:9-11). Avoid the company of the rebellious. There are people who sit in church and comfortably criticise the message being preached by the pastor. They criticise the preacher and everything going on in the church. That is rebellion; avoid it!
Remember this💡: “When rebellion begins to raise its ugly head in your life, reject and resist it.”
*1. Reject and resist the spirit of rebellion.*
*2. Decide to remain under authority.*
*3. Avoid the company of the rebellious.*
PRAYER🙏🏽: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I resist the spirit of rebellion and avoid the company of the rebellious. I receive the grace to perpetually remain under authority, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: “You see, God needs to work on the human character because it is humility that sustains authority! The truth is, there is a level of authority you can never achieve until you have attained some depths of humility!”. Culled from “GO IN THIS THY MIGHT” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING📖: Luke 13-15
AMAZING FACT😳: Polar bears have jet black skin under their white fur coats. It helps them absorb heat to keep warm, while the white fur helps provides camouflage in the snowy and icy environment they live.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD🔊🌧️: I curse every spirit of Korah, Dathan and Abiram that is out to ruin your life in Jesus’ Name.

TOPIC: NO VACUUM
“Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.” – (Luke 11:26)
READ: Luke 11:24-26 (KJV)
24. When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.
25. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.
26. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
Scientists have established that there is no vacuum anywhere in the world. It is the same in the Spirit realm; wherever the Spirit of God is not present, an evil spirit takes a seat. This is why many people keep going for deliverance sessions – trying to get rid of the same demon over and over again. It is not that the demon did not leave the first time, only that, when it did, the delivered fellow did not invite the Spirit of God into his/her heart to dwell, hence the demon came back with a legion to take over the heart. Such people end up worse than they were before they went for the deliverance session.
“…See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.” – John 5:14
In the Bible verse above, when Jesus chased the disease-causing demon out of the life of the man at the pool of Bethesda, He warned him not to go back into sin, lest a demon with a worse disease enter into him. If you want total and permanent freedom from demons, you must keep your heart filled with the Holy Spirit.
Have you recently become free from the hold of pornography, alcohol, hard drugs, sexual immorality or cultism? This is the time to constantly read your Bible and pray, because if you just keep rejoicing in your freedom without growing in grace, you would soon find yourself back in your old ways, or even worse. This is why many return to their old addictions.
Deliverance ministers should also not leave a person alone after praying for him/her. There must be a proper follow-up to ensure the Spirit of the Lord is fully formed in such a person. Teach them to read their Bible daily, to pray and be a part of the fellowship. Follow-up is the real deliverance; it is what determines if all the efforts in getting a person delivered are worth it or not. It gives an assurance that you did not leave the person worse than you met him/her.
Never leave a vacuum for the devil to take advantage of. Welcome the Holy Spirit today.
Deliverance is not complete until the Holy Spirit is fully formed in the delivered.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
HYMN 12 – I AM THINE O LORD
1. I am Thine O Lord
I have heard Thy voice
And it told Thy love to me
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
2. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord
By the pow’r of grace divine
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope
And my will be lost in Thine.
3. Oh, the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend.
4. There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.

Sunday, 25th October, 2020
GOD IS STILL A MIRACLE WORKER
“And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.” Matthew 2:11 KJV
If you have received Jesus Christ into your life, you should expect miraculous intervention on a daily basis in every aspect of your life. It should be a daily expectation. If you trace it back from the book of Genesis, the pre-incarnate Christ before he was finally born, you will discover that everything about Him is a miracle.
Elizabeth got a miracle and Mary experienced angelic visitation. God is trying to tell you that when it comes to this man called Jesus, the Saviour of the world; He is not like every other person.
He is not like every other religious ruler. He is totally different. For a virgin to have a baby; that was never heard of in any part of the world. But it happened according to the Word of God. Why? Because He is a miracle worker Himself. He was born in a manger because His parents were poor. That was why they offered turtle doves. Turtle doves are for the poor. Though He was born poor, but as soon as he was born, money came. The wise men from the east brought treasures. That is why Jesus is a gift with a lift. There is no way you can receive Jesus in your life and truly follow Him and His Word that He will not lift you up.
Don’t just celebrate Christmas like other people. It is good to wear good dresses and eat good food. It is good to celebrate and go to picnic but above all expect a miracle. God will intervene in that area of your life that the devil said it can never happen. God will touch you supernaturally.

[10/25, 6:39 AM] Jesus The Fruitful Vine Gospel Mission (Realm Of God): Learning from Moses (2)
Sunday 25th October 2020
‘He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God.’ Hebrews 11:25 NIV
Second: take responsibility for your life. ‘Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin’ (Hebrews 11:24-25 NIV).
Moses refused to be anyone but himself. Then, he chose to go God’s way. The principle here is that you can always replace a negative with a positive. You don’t just stop doing something – you start doing something else. The Christian life isn’t a matter of negative rules and regulations. It’s a matter of relationships – with God, with other people and with yourself. Notice, Moses made his decision ‘when he had grown up’. It’s a mark of maturity when you can settle the issue of personal responsibility. When Moses was a baby, it was okay to postpone the decision about who he was. But when he became an adult he had to make a choice: to assume responsibility for his own life and move ahead.
It’s always easy to blame others: ‘I’d go God’s way if my boyfriend or girlfriend, mother or father, husband or wife, would do it too.’ Or, ‘I’d be a better person today if I had better parents.’ You can’t choose all the circumstances that come into your life, but you can choose whether those things will make you a bitter person or a better person. Ultimately no one can ruin your life except you! The devil can’t, because he doesn’t have enough power – and God won’t, because he loves you. So choose to go God’s way!
