[4/2, 6:50 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: Today’s SOD – 2020-04-02
TOPIC: THE TRAGEDY OF INIQUITY
SCRIPTURE: There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee,”because thou art his wife”: how then can I do this great wickedness,”and sin against God? Genesis 39″:9.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Anything that defiles your conscience denies you your destiny.
Previously,”we saw that every child of God has the potential for great destiny in them. Every child of God has the seed of greatness. However, not all great potentials end up in great destinies because of certain limitations I will like to refer to as enemies of distinction and excellence.
Today, we shall be dealing with one of the enemies of distinction and excellence, and it is INIQUITY.
Iniquity was the major undoing of Reuben. Iniquity rendered Reuben useless on earth. He slept with his father’s wife and his destiny was practically aborted (Genesis 49″:3-4).
Iniquity also aborted the destiny of Judas Iscariot. Judas Iscariot was among the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ who was meant to sit on one of the thrones in heaven judging the twelve tribes of Israel,”but he missed it. Not only was his destiny on earth aborted, he also committed suicide and ended up in hellfire.
On the other hand, integrity upheld the destiny of Joseph. His destiny could not be ruptured because he was righteous before God. When he was tempted by Potiphar’s wife to commit immorality, he upheld his righteousness (Genesis 39″:9).
In the same manner,”integrity sustained the destiny of Daniel. He purposed in his heart not to defile himself with the king’s food (Daniel 1″:8). Beloved,”anything that defiles your conscience denies you your destiny.
Please, know that iniquity destroys destiny while integrity guarantees and upholds destiny. Make the choice for a lifestyle of integrity in order to have a solid destiny.
Remember this”: Anything that defiles your conscience denies you your destiny.
1. Make up your mind to avoid the lifestyle of iniquity.
2. Live a life that pleases God always.
PRAYER: Deliver me Lord from the tragedy of iniquity. Help me to please You with my life by the lifestyle of integrity,”Lord in Jesus’ Name.
FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE”: ENEMIES OF DISTINCTION AND EXCELLENCE (PART 1).
QUOTE: “…the greatest thing that can be said about anyone is that they have integrity,”not that they have money, not that they are gifted – but that they have integrity. A man of integrity means what he says and says what he means. He does not touch what is not his.” Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
AMAZING FACT”: African Lions are the most social of all big cats and live together in groups or “prides.” A Pride consists of about 15 Lions.
DAILY READING: 2 Chronicles 1-3
PROPHETIC WORD: Grace to uphold integrity is released upon you in Jesus Name.

[4/2, 6:54 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: Having the overcoming attitude
Thursday 2nd April 2020
‘There is wonderful joy ahead.’ 1 Peter 1:6 NLT
In 1962, in a classic study called Cradles of Eminence, Victor and Mildred Goertzel investigated the family backgrounds of more than 400 highly successful people. They sought to identify the early experiences that may have contributed to their remarkable achievements in life. They included people like Einstein and many others who are famous and admired. Their backgrounds proved to be very interesting. Three-quarters of them came from troubled childhoods, enduring poverty, broken homes or parental abuse. One-quarter of them had physical disabilities. Most of those who became well-known writers or playwrights watched their parents embroiled in one crisis after another.
Here’s what the researchers concluded: The need to compensate for disadvantages was a major factor in their drive towards personal achievement. These people had one thing in common – the overcoming attitude: ‘This is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith’ (1 John 5:4 NKJV). When you have faith in God and yourself, you can end up doing things that astound you. The problem that seems so formidable today can become the very thing that launches you into greatness tomorrow.
The Bible puts it this way: ‘There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold…So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honour’ (1 Peter 1:6-7 NLT)

*AUTHORITY OVER DEMONS .*
Thursday, April 2nd .
_*And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues (Mark 16:17).*_
Until Jesus came, people didn’t have the accurate information about demons and evil spirits. A lot of things that many had thought were ordinary were shown by Jesus to be spiritual.
For example, He made us aware that most sicknesses and diseases had devils behind them. When they brought someone who was deaf and dumb to Him, the Bible says He cast the spirit out. And right away, the deaf ears were unstopped and the person began to hear, and the dumb tongue was loosened. Luke 11:14 says, _*“And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.”*_
Mark 1:32-34 reveals the same truth: _*“And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils. And all the city was gathered together at the door. And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.”*_ There’re many today that are ignorant of demonic activities. But the reality is, there’re evil spirits that are running people’s lives. Sometimes, you find someone who has a fierce and violent temper. They said his father was like that, and he thinks it’s normal, but it’s not. It’s evil spirits that make those things happen.
The Bible talks of unclean spirits, which also make people unclean, and do evil things in the lives of human beings. Some of them are responsible for the frustrations some people experience in their lives. You find very successful people in various fields who suddenly fall back to emptiness. They lose everything, not knowing they’re being invaded by demonic forces.
But thanks be unto God! In Christ, you have authority over demons to cast them out from your affairs. You don’t need a minister to help you cast out demons. Jesus said every one of us who believes in Him would cast out devils in His Name (Mark 16:17); it’s a sign of our divinity. So, if there’ve been events and actions around you that you’re uncomfortable with, and you perceive Satan to be behind them, cast him out!
*Thank you, blessed Lord, for my authority in Christ over demons and the powers of darkness. Even now, I walk in the light of this authority by forbidding Satan and his demons from exerting upon or influencing anything that has to do with me. I hold off demonic activities in my family and workplace today, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.*
*FURTHER STUDY:* *||* *Matthew 10:8* Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. *||*
*||* *Mark 1:33-34* And all the city was gathered together at the door. 34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him. *||*
*||* *Acts 8:6-7* And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. 7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed [with them]: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. *||*

[4/2, 6:54 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: *Morning Showers** 🌦*
With Kingsley and Kemi Tobi
*Facing your giants part 5*
*Text*: 1 Sam 17:46-47
” _This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel._
_And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give you into our hands_ .”
*# Talk of faith and not fear #*
Battles are mainly wars of words. The Philistine’s giant, Goliath terrorised the army of Israel for forty days with his words. He had defeated the bravest of the army of Israel with words without lifting a finger, an arrow or a spear. His words sent jitters down their spine to the extent that even Abner the Commander hid his head in fear.
But another man came to the scene with a different mindset, speaking back to the enemy, the word of faith. He said to Goliath, “I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.”
*David’s fourth weapon was the talk of faith!* When you are faced with any giant, say what you desire to see and not what you are seeing. Jesus said in Mark 11:23, “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” The key in this verse is, “Whosoever shall say….” You cannot afford to stay silent in the midst of calamities. Speak the word of faith and you shall see the giant fall before you, says the Holy Scriptures!
*The Law of faith says, “The word is in your mouth.”* Rom 10:8, “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach.” Your destiny lies in what comes of your mouth in times like these. Begin to speak the word of faith. With faith in your heart, declare with your mouth what you desire to see. I see us coming out of this pandemic stronger, better and bigger than ever before. Although the enemy meant it for evil, God will turn it around for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.
“You are cleaned by the Word that I have spoken unto you”_ John 15:3_

YOUR NUMBER ONE ENEMY
“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall be corrupt by flatteries; but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploit.”
Daniel 11:32 (KJV)
No matter what is happening; no matter the situation, fear will not help you; it will only hurt and work against you. Truth is, fear comes with ignorance. Your ignorance is revealed by your fears; the level to which you are fearful over a subject matter is the level to which you are ignorant about the provisions of the covenant. Weakness is not a product of an attack; it is a product of ignorance manifested in fear and worries.
“…the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploit.” That you will be strong and do exploit requires that you KNOW. You are superior where you have knowledge and inferior where you don’t; strong where you have a KNOW and weak where you don’t. Whatever you don’t know you pay for, and with ignorance, it’s damagingly expensive. If you fear sickness, including the dreaded COVID-19, it is because you are ignorant of the covenant provisions for your health safety [Isaiah 53:5. I Peter 2:24. Malachi 4:2. Exodus 23:25]. Fear has never solved any problem; therefore, fear not! And always remember that fear is your number one enemy to overcome any challenge. Corona Virus is cursed, conquered and wiped out from the face of the earth, in Jesus Mighty Name!
KEEP IN MIND
No matter what is happening; no matter the situation, fear will not help you.Share On:
