*THEME: BEWARE OF EXCESSIVE PROFITEERING.*

*MEMORISE:*
He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
Proverbs 28:8

*Bible Reading: Proverbs 11:1-4*
1 A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.

2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.

3 The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.

4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.

*MESSAGE:*
Today, the Spirit of the Lord is warning us to beware of excessive profiteering in business. This is something people do in order to enrich themselves with worldly materials and possessions procured through huge profits. God says it is an act of wickedness when we unduly profit from essential goods and services. You may not know the pain you are inflicting by doing unless God opens your eyes to see that some who need the goods or services for survival are suffering because they cannot afford to pay what you are charging them. People who do this either do not know or have forgotten the words of wisdom in Proverbs 13:11, which says:

“Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.”

It is even worse when some rich employers of labor deny their workers their due wages, all in a bid to live large on what does not belong to them. It is equivalent to slavery when people work for you and you either don’t pay them or you tactically delay their payday. If you are involved in this, the Holy Spirit says to you in James 5:3-4:

“Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.”

A close look at the misfortune of those practicing such wickedness will make any wise person to heed God’s warning in this scripture. Those who loot the public treasury in order to leave something behind for their children have proved themselves foolish in this regard. Even in their lifetime, their children begin to mismanage their ill-gotten properties. We have heard stories of laborer’s children buying the properties of their fathers’ masters after the Lord of Sabaoth caused wealth to change hands. Only the riches gotten through just means can stand the test of time. No wonder Proverbs 22:22-23 says:

“Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.”

Beloved, remember the words of our Lord Jesus Christ and be wise: He warned us that the value of a man’s life does not consist of the abundance of the things he has (Luke 12:15). May the Lord grant you the great gain that comes from godly commitment in Jesus’ Name.

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

*BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:*
Judges 7-8
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.

*Refrain:*
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 skis,
Do others see Jesus in you?

*Refrain*

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

*Refrain*

TOPIC: THE NECESSITY OF FAITH

SCRIPTURE: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,”the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11″:1 

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is faith that gives substance to hope.

Necessity is a major driver of exploits. When the necessity of a thing is known,”exploit in that direction is achievable.

So, we are going to look at one of the necessities of faith in order to increase our drive towards growing our faith so as to live a victorious life on earth.

Now, why is faith necessary?

Faith turns expectations into manifestation

Hebrews 11″:1 says,”Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. To hope for something means to expect it, so it is faith that gives substance to hope.

For instance, if you are expecting your wedding to come to pass before the end of the year; if you are expecting the grace to command millions and billions of Naira for the purposes of the Gospel, or you are trusting God for the grace to operate in a higher realm of the anointing, etc. it is faith that would convert that expectation into manifestation.

This implies that where faith is lacking, expectation continues unfulfilled. Where faith is lacking, hope is deferred (Proverbs 13″:12).

When a person’s hope is deferred,”the arrival of the things he is expecting keeps being postponed and it makes the heart sick according to scripture (Prov. 13″:12).

So,”we need faith because there is no human being on earth today that does not have an expectation or expectations.

Remember this”: It is faith that gives substance to hope.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Make up your mind to read God’s Word consistently.

2. Hold unto God’s promises; they will come to pass. 

3. Never allow the situations of life to weigh you down.

4. Always do the opposite of what the devil expects from you.

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

PRAYER: Lord,”I will trust You in the night time and in the day. Let Your counsel and good thoughts for me be established, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

DAILY BIBLE READING”: 2 Chronicles 19:1 to 20:37,”Romans 10″:14 to 11:12,”Psalm 21″:1 to 13,”Proverbs 20″:4 to 6

QUOTE: Nothing disarms darkness like light. Culled from 15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL by Dr Paul Enenche.

AMAZING FACT: There is a plant that is able to simultaneously produce both tomatoes and potatoes,”cleverly named as the “Ketchup ‘n’ Fries” plant. 

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD”: The realm of exploits is your realm – in this season,”you shall see the results of your faith in Jesus’ Name. 

DON’T FORGET TO ATTEND”: The Sunday Service tomorrow by 9:00am at the Glory Dome,”the Lord’s Garden, Airport Road, Abuja. Endeavour to come to Church with your friends and loved ones. God bless you.

THEME”: LA NECESSITE DE LA FOI 

LES SAINTES ECRITURES: Or la foi est une ferme assurance des choses qu’on espère,”une démonstration de celles qu’on ne voit pas. Hébreux 11″: 1.

PENSEE DU JOUR: C’est la foi qui donne de la substance à l’espoir. 

La nécessité est catalyseur majeur des exploits. Lorsque la nécessité d’une chose est connue,”l’exploit dans cette direction est réalisable. Nous allons donc examiner l’une des nécessités de la foi, afin d’accroître votre volonté de développer votre foi de manière à mener une vie victorieuse sur la terre. 

Alors, pourquoi la foi est-elle nécessaire? 

La foi transforme les attentes en manifestation. 

Hébreux 11″: 1 dit: « Or la foi est une ferme assurance des choses qu’on espère,”une démonstration de celles qu’on ne voit pas. »  Espérer, c’est s’attendre à. C’est donc la foi qui donne de la substance à l’espérance. Par exemple, si vous vous attendez à ce que votre mariage soit célébré avant la fin de l’année; s

Spiritual Fruit Salad
by Beatrice Jean-Baptiste

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23
I’ll never forget the day my dear friends stopped by with a beautiful fruit platter after my discharge from the hospital.

I had just delivered twins via Cesarean and everything I ate spiked my blood pressure. As a picky eater, the fruit was the perfect postpartum gift. The platter was an artful array of pineapples, strawberries, melons, grapes, and apples. I ate it all and enjoyed each bite.

God has gifted you and me with a spiritual fruit platter – the fruit of the Spirit – that meets every human craving. All we have to do to access it is to be filled with His Holy Spirit.

Unlike strawberries and melons on a fruit platter, the fruit of the Spirit helps us to live victorious lives in Christ. As we abide in Christ, the Spirit of God moves on our hearts and molds us into the likeness of Christ.

The likeness of Christ in our lives allow the spiritual fruit to blossom and flourish within so we can reflect God’s character and be transformed.

Fruit of the Spirit empowers us to display the character of God more clearly in our everyday lives and to live triumphantly so God’s glory shines through.

Pray

Holy Heavenly Father,
I hunger and thirst for more of You.
Please transform my life with Your Holy Spirit so I can live a victorious life of surrender unto You.
Help me to live a life that is a virtual feast of Your grace.
In Jesus’ name I pray Amen.

[7/27, 7:14 AM] 919063: Strive for intimacy in your marriage

Saturday 27th July 2019

‘Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?’ Amos 3:3 NKJV

The Bible teaches us that the basis for a good marriage isn’t just sharing the same bed every night, but the same values and goals every day. Without those, it will be like talking to each other in a foreign language. Now, you won’t always agree, and you must accept that. But if you want to reach the same destination you’ve got to follow the same road map. Like building a house, you need to work from an agreed-upon set of blueprints.

After a while you discover that physical intimacy alone isn’t enough. That might get you through the night, but it takes genuine friendship and shared faith in God to get you through the years. We’re talking about husbands and wives who communicate without saying a word because the same purposes and principles govern their lives. And when problems arise, as they invariably do, they seek solutions from the same source – God. When life fell apart for Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, they came before God together because they had both had a relationship with him. After all, how can you correct the problem if one of you doesn’t think there is a problem?

True intimacy comes when the sex is over and the commitment is stronger than ever. It allows you to be with someone without always needing to impress them. One author puts it like this: ‘When we know we’re loved because of who we are, we become healthier in mind and more intimate in expression. We’re freed from the fear of rejection and loosed from the anxiety of having to perform.’
