Morning Devotions

[5/5, 5:32 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: Today’s SOD – 2020-05-05
TOPIC: YOUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF GOD

SCRIPTURE: What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you,”which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 1 Corinthians 6″:19

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Presence of God in you is a guarantee that no other presence can dwell in you.

A major way to access and maintain Divine healing or deliverance is having the understanding that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19). 

If you can grasp the fact that you are not your own,”and that God dwells in you, then the issue of your deliverance is a walkover. This means, if you have received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, then, God dwells in you. The Presence of God in you is a guarantee that no other presence can dwell in you. Sicknesses and bondages are sponsored by a spirit – a demonic spirit. That spirit is not qualified to dwell in you for as long as the Presence of God dwells in you. 

Romans 8″:11 reveals that if the Spirit of God that quickened Jesus and raised Him from the dead dwells in you,”that same spirit quickens, makes alive, regenerates, re-energises, reinvigorates, refuels and repowers your mortal bodies.This means, you can make demands on the Spirit of God, the life-quickening Spirit of God to quicken every cell of your body, artery, nerve, ligament, etc. and then you will see yourself walking about with the energy and vitality of God. 

Today, I decree that you shall live permanently in the realm of Divine health and vitality, in Jesus’ Name.

REMEMBER THIS”: The Presence of God in you is a guarantee that no other presence can dwell in you.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Go through today’s study again.

2. Make demands on the spirit of God to destroy any sickness or disease affecting you or your loved ones.

PRAYER: Lord,”I declare that my body is the temple of the Holy Ghost. Therefore, no infirmity, affliction or depression can come near me, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE”: YOUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF GOD

QUOTE: To maintain a godly character; you must exercise yourself to always have a conscience that is void of offence towards God and men. Culled from WHO ARE YOU? by Dr Paul Enenche

DAILY BIBLE READING: Job 31-33 

AMAZING FACT: A person can breathe and swallow at the same time.

PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: Every stranger in your body is excused off today by the power of the Spirit in the Name of Jesus Christ.

[5/5, 5:32 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: MESSAGE FROM:

*Rev. Anthony Akinmoyo,*
Lifeway Christian Centre,
Lagos.

FOCUS: *Overcoming Deadly Fears of Life* (Part 2)

Isaiah 41:10 (KJV) *Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.*

Matthew 28:20 (KJV)
*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.*

What a great word of comfort from the throne of God to us this morning.The Lord says He is with us always not sometimes. Bear in mind that when God is with us, nothing can be against us and succeed. Therefore, we have no reason to be afraid.

Ephesians 4:27 (KJV)
*Neither give place to the devil.*

Dr. Len Jones once said, “fear is the devil’s second name.” Until you give the devil a place, he cannot operate. The fear you accommodate through your words or thoughts is an avenue or opportunity given to the devil to carry out his evil acts.

Ecclesiastes 10:8 (KJV)
*”…whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.”*

Job is a good example in this case. Scripture made it known that Job was heavily protected by God to the extent that satan bore witness of Job’s super safety.

Job 1:9-10 (KJV)
[9] *Then Satan answered the Lord , and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?* [10] *Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.*

The root of disaster and evil that visited Job was his fear, Job’s fear ensnared him. Satan could not strike Job until he broke the hedge by himself. He declared with his mouth that he was not in safety.

Job 3:25-26 (KJV) *For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.*
*I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.*

Job 3:25-26 (MSG) *The worst of my fears has come true, what I’ve dreaded most has happened.
My repose is shattered, my peace destroyed. No rest for me, ever—death has invaded life.*

In the law of the Spirit, both faith and fear have magnetic forces. Each draw or attract its kind. Whatever you believe God for will surely come. The same way whatever you are afraid of or fear will surely come. Fear is the gateway to evil occurrences. Job was perpetually living in fear before the evil he was afraid of came upon him.

Mark 11:23 (KJV)
*”…he shall have whatsoever he saith.”*

Proverbs 23:7 (KJV)
*”For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”*

Beloved, it is time we close the door of our destinies against the devil by checking out all forms of fear. I acknowledge there are so much negative news out there but you can choose to believe in the report of the Lord such as:

Psalms 91:10 (KJV) *There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.*

Job 5:19-20 (KJV) *He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.*
*In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword.*

Hebrews 13:5 (KJV) *Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.*

Zephaniah 3:15 (KJV) *The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.*

Disregard what the devil is doing and focus on the strength and integrity of your Father the Almighty. Do not submit your life to the tricks of the devil, resist him by standing firm on the word of God and he will flee from you.

James 4:7 (KJV)
*Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.*

I see you and your family celebrate the goodness of the Lord after this pandemic in the mighty name of Jesus!

*PRAYERS:*

1. Thank you my Father for your word I have received this morning.

2. John 8:32 (KJV) *And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.*

Thank you Father for the liberty I have received through your word this morning.

3. 2 Kings 6:17 (KJV)
*And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.*

O Lord my Father, open my eyes to see your divine provision for my all-round safety in Jesus mighty name!

4. Psalm 34:13 (KJV)
*Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.*

O Lord my Father, I cancel all negative words I have spoken into my life and family knowingly or by error in Jesus mighty name!

5. Psalm 118:17 (KJV)
*I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.*

I cancel all spells of death around my life and family in Jesus mighty name!

6. Anywhere I have ignorantly or mistakenly called death, I reverse it to life in Jesus mighty name!

7. I declare I shall live to see good old age full of riches and honour in Jesus mighty name!

8. I decree I shall not cast my young in Jesus mighty name!

9. I declare my seed shall be great on earth in Jesus mighty name!

10. Ezekiel 36:11 (KJV)
*And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.*

O Lord my Father, settle me with my heart’s desire (husband, wife, children, job, promotion, lifting). Settle me o Lord in Jesus mighty name!

11. Psalm 17:5 (KJV)
*Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.*

O Lord my Father, uphold my going, do not allow the trap of the enemy catch up with me in Jesus mighty name!

12. Isaiah 60:11 (KJV)
*Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.*

O Lord my God, open the doors of greatness to me and my children in the mighty name of Jesus!

Thank you Father for the grace to pray and answers to all my prayers.

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

See you tomorrow,
Stay strong,
Stay safe.

[5/5, 5:32 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DATE: TUESDAY 5TH MAY 2020.

THEME: ARE YOU AMONG THE FAITHFUL FEW?

MEMORISE:

The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. Isaiah 10:21

READ: Matthew 24:37-42

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

MESSAGE:

As seen from yesterday’s study, there is an urgent need to change for the better. Yet, it is possible that only a few people will take up that challenge. Are you one of these faithful few?

From today’s memory verse, we can conclude that not all men have corrupted themselves, as such there will always be a remnant- a faithful few. These still remain holy and obedient to the Lordship of Christ in spite of the godlessness in the world today.

In several passages of the Scripture, God talks about the faithful few who have been favored. Romans 11:5
“Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.”

We see from the Scripture above that to be among these faithful few, grace has a huge role to play. In today’s Bible reading, Jesus talks about how only eight people in the whole world were spared from the flood in the days of Noah. This is a fearful thing, yet many people are taking the call for repentance with levity these days. We are no wiser than Noah’s generation. Neither were they more sinful than the world is today. We have only enjoyed grace which according to Titus 2:12 should teach us to deny ungodliness.

Beloved, all men have sinned through Adam (Romans 3:23; 5:15-17), therefore, you must repent if you haven’t, otherwise there would be repercussions. In Luke 13:5. Jesus told the people of Galilee who did not accept the gospel that except they repented, they would perish.

You must determine not to be among the corrupt people of this world. Separate yourself for God’s use (Romans 12:1-2, 2 Timothy 2:21).

While it may be true that some ungodly people are “flourishing” in the world today, Psalm 73 says such is to their ultimate destruction. For us the faithful few, Psalms 1 and 15 must be our watchword.

PRAYER POINT:

Father, please count me worthy to be among the blessed remnant- the faithful, favored few.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 89, 96, 100, 101, 105, 132.

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

HYMN 8: HAVE YOU BEEN TO JESUS.

1. Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing pow’r?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

o Refrain:
Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

2. Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

3. When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?

4. Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
Oh, be washed in the blood of the Lamb!
