*THEME: CHRIST’S AMBASSADOR INDEED?*

*MEMORISE:*
Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
–  (2 Corinthians 3:2).

*Bible Reading: ACTS 4:13-16*
13. Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

14. And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.

15. But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves,

16. Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it.

*MESSAGE:*
Who is an ambassador? An ambassador is simply an official who lives in a foreign country as the representative of his or her own country.

Two things are striking in this definition. The first is that an ambassador is an official and a representative of his or her country’s government. In other words, there is a relationship between the ambassador and the country he or she represents.

Secondly, an ambassador lives in a foreign country. From these points, it is obvious that Christ’s ambassadors must have a relationship with Him.

There are many people today who claim to be representatives of Jesus Christ, whereas there is no relationship between them and the Master. Concerning such people, Jesus say in Luke 13:26-27:

“Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.”

Furthermore, Christ’s ambassadors must see themselves as strangers living in a foreign land called earth. Unless you live your life as a pilgrim with temporary stay on earth, you cannot be Christ’s ambassador indeed.

Learn from those who have gone ahead of us, of whom Hebrews 11:13 says:

“These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuade of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”

The early apostle are great examples of how to live our lives as Christ’s ambassadors. Although most of them were ignorant and illiterate men, they were also something else, which supersedes every other thing: they were clones of the Lord Jesus Christ, reflecting the life and principles He brought from heaven.

It is therefore not surprising that they did the same feats the Lord did while in the flesh – thus fulfilling the prophecy Jesus made that we would do the works He did, and even greater works than He did (John 14:12).

Even the Jewish leaders who persecuted the disciples admitted that they resembled their Master.

Beloved, to be Christ’s ambassador indeed requires learning of Him (Matthew 11:28-30). Are you ready to learn of Him? Do you see yourself as Christ’s ambassador in all that you do?

The disciples of old lived their lives as Christ’s ambassadors and did not regret it. In fact, Jesus promised them a hundredfold return on their commitment, and this promise is yours also (Mark 10:29-30).

*PRAYER POINT:*
Father, grant me grace to live my life as Your worthy ambassador, in Jesus’ Name.

*BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:*
JUDGES 7-8 AND EZEKIEL 23:28-45

*AUTHOR:*
PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

*HYMN 5: LET OTHERS SEE JESUS IN YOU.*
1. While passing thro’ this world of sin,
And others your life shall view,
Be clean and pure without, within;
Let others see Jesus in you.

* CHORUS:*
Let others see Jesus in you.
Let others see Jesus in you;
Keep telling the story, be faithful and true,
Let others see Jesus in you.

2. Your life’s a book before their eyes,
They’re reading it thro’ and thro’
Say, does it point them to the skies,
Do others see Jesus in you?

*CHORUS:*

3. Then live for Christ both day and night,
Be faithful, be brave and true,
And lead the lost to life and light;
Let others see Jesus in you.

*CHORUS:*

[7/28, 5:15 AM] 919063: Today’s SOD – 2019-07-28
TOPIC: THE VOICE OF FAITH

SCRIPTURE: And Elijah the Tishbite,”who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word. 1 Kings 17″:1

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Faith makes a person speak with the voice of authority.

Having faith in God gives the voice of command and authority to the faithful. Faith makes authoritative the voice of the saint. 

In a world where there are many activities of darkness,”having a compelling voice of authority to shake the kingdom of darkness is crucial. There are people speaking but no one is hearing, no devil is moving at the sound of their voices, no witch is bowing. But there are spiritual giants making exploits for God, speaking and the kingdom of darkness is devastated at the frequency of their unshakable faith in God. 

Beloved, if you want to speak and be heard by the powers of darkness, nature or creation, it is faith that gives you the voice. There are people whose eyes cast out devils; it is at the frequency of solid faith in God and His Word.

It is faith that gives you the voice to speak and be heard in the realm of the spirit. Faith makes a person speak with the voice of authority. To make brutal declarations in Nigeria and something happens in India, South America, etc., is a product of the voice of faith. Faith gives a person a voice in his generation.

So, beloved, if you are not happy with the current strength of your voice, the solution is to intensify the strength of your faith.

Remember this”: Faith makes a person speak with the voice of authority.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Feed on God’s Word consistently,”believe whatever He says and act in obedience to His Word.

2. Always refuse to keep quiet when your destiny, the destiny of your family, state or nation is being decided.

3. Refuse to be afraid of defending the cause of God on the earth.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE”: THE MYSTERY OF FAITH

PRAYER: Lord,”I believe in Your power over the kingdom of darkness. I declare that there is no place for darkness in my life and destiny, in the church and in our nation, Lord in Jesus’ Name!

DAILY BIBLE READING”: 2 Chronicles 21:1 to 23:21,”Romans 11″:13 to 36,”Psalm 22″:1 to 18,”Proverbs 20″:7

QUOTE: The reason our generation has not taken us seriously is that our proof is not full. When your proof is not full,”Satan is not threatened by your Ministry. Culled from MAKING FULL PROOF OF MINISTRY by Dr Paul Enenche.

AMAZING FACT”: In 1961,”a Russian doctor had to remove his own appendix after it burst because he was the only doctor stationed in a remote soviet research station in Antarctica and he survived. 

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD”: Proceed with the voice of authority in this season to silence the voice of the enemy in Jesus Name.

SEEDS OF DESTINY IN FRENCH:

SEMENCE DE DESTINEE

DIMANCHE,”LE 28 JUILLET 2019

THEME”: LA VOIX DE LA FOI

LES SAINTES ECRIPTURES: Elie,”le Thischbite, l’un des habitants de Galaad, dit à Achab”: L’Eternel est vivant,”le Dieu d’Israël, dont je suis le serviteur! Il n’y aura ces années-ci ni rosée ni pluie, sinon à ma parole. 1 Rois 17″: 1

PENSEE DU JOUR: La foi amène une personne à parler avec la voix de l’autorité.

Avoir foi en Dieu donne une voix du commandement et de l’autorité aux fidèles. La foi revêt d’autorité la voix du saint.

Dans un monde où règnent de nombreuses activités du royaume des ténèbres,”il est crucial d’avoir une voix d’autorité pour secouer le royaume des ténèbres. Il y a des gens qui parlent mais personne n’entend, aucun diable ne bouge au son de leur voix, aucune sorcière ne se prosterne. Mais il y a des géants spirituels qui font des exploits pour Dieu, ils parlent et le royaume des ténèbres est dévasté à la fréquence de leur foi inébranlab

[7/28, 6:07 AM] 919063: Leave a legacy

Sunday 28th July 2019

‘Well done, good and faithful servant.’ Matthew 25:21 NKJV

You don’t get to choose the moment of your arrival and departure here on earth, but you get to choose what your legacy will be, what you will be remembered for.

At five, he wrote an advanced concerto for the harpsichord. Before he was ten he published several violin sonatas and was playing Handel and Bach from memory. Soon after his twelfth birthday he composed and conducted his first opera. He was awarded an honorary appointment as concertmaster with the Salzburg Symphony Orchestra, and within a few years was hailed as the pride of Salzburg. When he died at age 35 he had written forty-eight symphonies; forty-seven arias, duets, and quartets, with orchestral accompaniment; and more than a dozen operas. He’s credited with some 600 original compositions in all. Even so, Mozart lived most of his life in poverty and died without fanfare. He was buried in a standard unmarked grave, as was usual practice for the time. No shrine marks his resting place. Today, what is Mozart remembered for? What is his legacy? Not the modest life he lived, but the music he gave the world that still enriches our lives.

When your life’s sole focus is self-interest, you won’t be missed when you are gone, or missed for the right reasons. So find a cause greater than yourself, one that will outlive you, and pour yourself into it. Don’t just leave a will, leave a legacy that fulfils God’s will.

GOD WILL NOT ABANDON YOU

“Being confident of this very thing; that He who hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ”.
Philippians 1:6 KJV

God is the Alpha and Omega. When you say God is the first and the last, you are talking about His person. He is always first. Number one and nothing else!  When you say He is the Beginning and the End, you are talking about His works and His functions. When He begins anything, it will be finished. That means that whatever seems to be an abandoned project in your life shall be completed.

God does not abandon a project. Therefore, you are not an abandoned project. Whatever is pending in your life shall be completed by the authority of Heaven. Be it in the area of your health, your finance, your marital life, your business, or your academics. Any pending issue in your life shall be perfected. This is your time! This is your season.  Your destiny cannot be manipulated. I shut the mouth of Satan in every area of your life in Jesus Name.

No matter what you are passing through right now, I can tell you that you will get to your God-ordained destiny because God will not abandon you. The path of the righteous is like a shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto a perfect day. That shall be your portion. Every day and in every way, you are getting better: spiritually, physically, financially, mentally, morally and in all your endeavours. You are called for a purpose and you will fulfill purpose. You will arrive at God’s ordained destiny for your life. Nothing will cut you short. You will make a formidable impact in your world for the Kingdom. You will build that house!  You will marry your husband! You will deliver your baby! You will buy that car! You will open that business! You will not die a disappointment. Your children will not be vagabonds! You will see your children’s children. I bless you today; I call forth the manifestation of your dreams.
