70years In The Church of E. W Kenyon

This got me Thinking:
Anybody that died below 70years in the church of E.W KENYON he raised him back to life…

A man called Saint Patrick did not only raise dead people back to life…

He was also raising dead animals and dead trees back to life…

An illeterate that was rejected admission into Bible school disappeared from the community and people thought he had committed suicide…

2 months after, he resurfaced in a place where someone died in the community…

As they saw him, all of them ran away… Thinking he was a ghost…

He went straight inside the room the dead man was lying…

He didn’t pray… He didn’t open the Bible…

He just got there. Called the man’s name and told him:

“Please, stand up now, because i want you to accompany me back to the train station …”

Immediately, the dead man heard his voice, he rose up from the dead and followed him out of the room…

People saw them and were following them around to wherever they were going…

When they got to the old rail way station, he entered there with his new friend that just came back to life …

That was when people knew that he was not dead all these while he disappeared…

He was there looking for the power of God…

Since they rejected him admission into bible school, he made up his mind to look for God or die looking for God …

By The next morning, it was already on the news that a dead man came back from the land of the dead to raise another dead man back to life…

That old railway became a tourist center…

People were coming to see the dead man that rose another dead man back to life…

But as he would be explaining to them how it all happened, the power of God would hit them…

Some of them would be on the floor crying for their sins, until the next morning…

Other people will come there and meet them there…

The next time he went back to the school to seek admission…

All the teachers in the school gathered around him, begging him to teach them how to raise the dead…

As he was explaining to the teachers of the school, students sited him and gathered there…

As he saw their hunger to manifest the power of God, he released the power of God upon them …

And both teachers and students were impacted…

As they left there, they began to heal all manner of sicknesses…

That was how a massive revival broke out in that little community that lasted for about 100 years…

I am tired of coming online to see carnality being displayed by carnal men and women…

I am now ashamed of the days I wasted time noticing those that are not noticing me and those that are noticing me …

There is a higher calling…

We can’t remain in this level and expect to bring revival in our communities…

Suddenly, you have lost your burden to bring Jesus to your community…

Sir, check your new friends…

Suddenly, all your prayer request is for God to give you this and that…

No more passion for the Kingdom…
No more desire to take the gospel to some areas in your street…

Sister, you need God to revive you again…

Imagine if we have such a man in your family…
Tell me where the witch will come from to fight your business and marriage…

Imagine if you become such a man that raises both dead trees and animals back to life…

Tell me why the people troubling all the male children in your fathers house will not come to apologize to you…

We lost everything when we began to struggle to gain everything…

We failed everywhere when it became obvious that we have failed in the place of prayer…

Many families and communities are still doomed to premature deaths and chronic poverty…

Because those who God is expecting to carry the Fire there are on Facebook looking for those that will help them fight their enemies…

I wish God will open our eyes to see how backward friends have kept us all these years…

I wish we will tell ourselves the truth that we are far behind…

There is a program hanging over out heads that have not been fulfilled yet…

There are people that needs to enter into another dimension of power…

There are people that needs to rededicate their lives to the cause of the Cross which they once carried brazenly…

UNDERSTANDING THE LEADING OF THE SPIRIT

SCRIPTURE: For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Romans 8:14.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Sensitivity to the leading of the Spirit is key to being led by the Spirit.

Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that being led by the Spirit is a mark of sonship in Christ. True sons of God are led by the Spirit of God.

It is very important to understand how the Spirit leads. Sensitivity to the leading of the Spirit is key to being led in the Spirit.

Let me give you examples: There are times you wake up in the morning and you don’t have a leading to eat. Food may be available but you just don’t feel like eating. The truth is, you do not eat just because food is ready; you eat because there is a need to eat.

When you slept the previous night, you did not plan to fast at all, but when you saw food, you just lost your appetite. In such a case, do not force yourself to eat by all means because food is on the table. Sensitivity directs that the Spirit is leading you to fast for that day or at least for some time.

You might also have planned a journey you wanted to embark on but you just lost your peace about it. Everything has been planned but you do not feel like going. Do not force yourself to go on that journey; listen to the Spirit of God.

Sensitivity is key to the leading of the Holy Spirit. People who are not spiritually sensitive would find it difficult to know how God leads.

My counsel to you today is to be sensitive to God’s instructions. Do not be in a hurry to do anything. Always try to know what God wants you to do per time.

Remember this: Sensitivity to the leading of the Spirit is key to being led in the Spirit.

ASSIGNMENTS:

  1. Go through today’s message again.
  2. Be sensitive to the leading of the Spirit. Do not force yourself to do anything you have lost your peace about.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to be sensitive to the leading of the Spirit. Sharpen my spiritual perception and sensitivity, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: If you need the power of God in your life, if you need the visitation and move of the Holy Spirit in your life, then Word must combine with Spirit to generate power! Culled “GO IN THIS THY MIGHT” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Nehemiah 12-Esther 1.

AMAZING FACT: Israeli academics produce more scientific papers per capita than anywhere else in the world. Being connected to God is the secret of wisdom and greatness.

PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: May God assist you with true sensitivity in this season in Jesus Name.

JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER


He was once the richest man in the world. The first billionaire in the world.

By age 25 he controlled one of the largest oil refineries in the nation. By age 31 he had become the world’s largest oil refiner. By age 38 he commanded 90% of the oil refined in the U.S. By the time of his retirement at age 58, he was the richest man in the country. By the time he died, he had become the richest man in the world.

As a young man, every decision, attitude, and relationship was tailored to create his personal power and wealth. But at the age of 53 he became ill. His entire body became racked with pain and he lost all of his hair. In complete agony, the world’s only billionaire could buy anything he wanted, but he could only digest milk and crackers. An associate wrote, “He could not sleep, would not smile and nothing in life meant anything to him.” His personal, highly skilled physicians predicted he would die within a year. That year passed agonizingly slow.

As he approached death he awoke one morning with the vague remembrances of a dream about not being able to take any of his successes with him into the next world. The man who could control the business world suddenly realized he was not in control of his own life. He was left with a choice. He called his attorneys, accountants, and managers and announced that he wanted to channel his assets to hospitals, research, and mission work. On that day John D. Rockefeller established his foundation.

This new direction eventually led to the discovery of penicillin, cures for malaria, tuberculosis and diphtheria. But perhaps the most amazing part of Rockefeller’s story is that the moment he began to give back a portion of all that he had earned, his body’s chemistry was altered so significantly that he got better. It looked as if he would die at 53 but he lived to be 98.

Rockefeller learned gratitude and gave back the vast majority of his wealth. Doing so made him whole. It is one thing to be healed. It is another to be made whole. He attended the Baptist Church. He was faithful in working for God in the church, cleaning the house of God, until he died!

Before his death, he wrote this in his dairy:
“I was early taught to work as well as play,
My life has been one long, happy holiday;
Full of work and full of play
I dropped the worry on the way
And God was good to me everyday”

I hope the true story of the life of this man, who happens to be the first billionaire, will make many wealthy ones or those chasing wealth have a rethink to show more LOVE to mankind.

THE SCRIPTURES

If you want to be worded, please feel free to study scriptures without reading the whole Bible. Just go for Greek and Hebrew, you know, katakrino, epiginosko, hasedagape, and so on. Very soon you will be a rhemified wordsmith and bible teacher extraordinare.
Listeners will slap their laps as you tear them word, shouting Shanda! Yes Sir!! Preach it!! And several tonguings like Zualakate and so on
BUT if you want to live the Christ-Life, you have to read the Book. I maintain that it takes the whole Bible to make a whole Christian. It takes the whole Bible to make a healthy church. The whole Bible is the Christian doctrine.
Three times the devil tempted the Lord in the days of His flesh, and not once did He say “the greek word for stone is ajeokuta mamomi” or “the context of that verse you quoted in the greek is not jump but glide…”. Mba. He simply replied “It is written..” or “It is also written”
Not once did He say, that is Jesus; “Have you not studied the rhema of this or that?” Rara. He said “Have you never READ…”
Both reading and studying are important, but reading comes first. Reading is fundamental to studying. Paul did not only write to Timothy saying “Study to show yourself a workman who rightly divides the word of truth.” He first said to him “Give attention to reading.”
Before you can specialise in advanced calculus or space geometry, you have to do mathematics at a basic level. Before you can read books and write poems, you have to learn A to Z. Before you become a specialist in any area, you need a foundation in the general knowledge of that field.
No one gets into school and starts learning obstetrics or heart surgery. No. You will learn nonsense. First you have to know about the whole human body – how it is structured and how it works; then later you can focus on the heart. The whole Bible is one message. Reading the whole is the proper macro-context for studying any part.
You know, a doctor can look at someone’s feet and know that there is a big problem with their heart. He or she will treat the heart and both the heart and feet will be fine.
Another person who never studied medicine but calls themselves a foot specialist will see the same feet and start massaging it, making marks on it, and applying all kinds of substances until the person dies.
That’s why we have so many dead doctrines that massage the itching ears of some but do nothing for their hearts. It is because the teachers are trying to explain Paul’s algebra but they don’t know Isaiah’s arithmetics. They cannot count 1 to 100 but are trying to solve (yx + 2xy – y)/(x – 1) = 12.
Disaster.
Jesus said to the Jews “If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me. But if you do not believe what he wrote, how will you believe what I say?” When He explained the gospel to His disciples, He began with the writings of Moses and went through all the prophets.
Some of you don’t know how to pray with the understanding at all, because you have never really read the Psalms. Eugene Peterson, the author of The Message Translation said the Psalms are the prayer language of the church. That book is an anatomy of all kinds of prayers; whether intercessory, supplication, warfare or others. Jesus on the Cross prayed with the words of the Psalms. The apostles in Acts 4 prayed from Psalms 2.
Some of you want to be deep worshippers and worship leaders but you don’t know the Bible. Don Moen sang “You make me lie down in green pastures (Psalm 23)”; “He never sleeps (Psalm 121)”; “God is the strength of my heart (Psalm 73)”. Ron kenoly sang “The Lord be magnified (Psalm 40)”; Ancient of Days (Daniel 7) and so on. Nathaniel Bassey sang “Your name is a strong tower (Proverbs 18)”, Casting Crowns and Book of Life (Revelation)
But you want to be doing deep spiritual chants and you think it’s only when you do unknown tongue chants that you are doing a Holy Ghost ministration. No! The Bible says – be filled with the Holy Spirit, speaking to yourselves IN PSALMS and hymns and spiritual songs…but you have never read the Psalms or the Prophets. You want dance like David danced but you haven’t read what David said
You never hala!
Some of you cannot preach and prophesy because you don’t know the prophets. When Jesus got to His hometown, He said the Spirit of the Lord is upon Me. Isaiah 61. It was powerful! The first time Peter preached, He said “This is that which was spoken by the prophet…that’s right. Joel 2.” You want to teach like Paul taught but you haven’t read what Paul read.
You never hala!
And some cannot live for God alone because you have never read the Scriptures.
If you’ve read Abraham’s story, impatience will die
If you’ve read Joseph’s story, complaining will be hard
If you’ve read the young prophet’s story, no false prophet can easily deceive you
If you’ve read of Ham, you will shun dishonor
If you’ve read of Hezekiah, you will be more careful what you post about your personal life
If you’ve read Hosea, you will understand love better
If you’ve read of Gehazi, you will serve more sincerely
If you’ve read of Ananias and Sapphira, you won’t tell lies in church
If you’ve read of Paul and Silas, you will praise God when the odds are against you
Until you see that you are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses; and not just Paul’s witness; you will find it difficult to run the race with patience, the race set before you. Unless you know that everything was written as an example to you, for your learning, comfort, teaching, rebuke, correction, and training in righteousness; you will be a drop out from the school of the Spirit with an incomplete kingdom education.
And Jesus who began to do and teach quoted Genesis, Exodus, Psalms, Deuteronomy etc and Peter quoted Exodus, Leviticus, Isaiah, Psalms etc and Paul quoted Isaiah, Malachi etc; then if you must know the Christian faith; and you must live as they lived
Then you have to read your Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
Nothing less will do.
Good evening.

FATE OF FALSE PROPHETS

TEXT: JEREMIAH 29:20-32
🔑KEY VERSE “Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite, and his seed: he shall not have a man to dwell among this people; neither shall he behold the good that I will do for my people, saith the LORD; because he hath taught rebellion against the LORD” (JEREMIAH 29:32).

“Thus saith the Lord” has become a common tune in the mouths of many in our society. There are so many self-appointed prophets showcasing themselves and their ministries on radio, television and the social media. They use high sounding words, push people down under a purported anointing and are always quick to make prophetic declaration on every trending issues in the society. The most unfortunate fact of their life is that they have no knowledge of the God they claim to represent. They have, in turn, made their followers “twice children of hell”. These are impostors and deceivers in the world.

Today’s passage opens with the declaration of God’s displeasure and judgment against three impostors in Jeremiah’s day. Zedekiah, Ahab and Shemaiah arrogated to themselves the office of prophets that God never gave them. God declared them to be adulterers and liars, and placed a curse upon them in Israel for their hypocrisy and misleading utterances. These impostors had something in common; they were all involved in telling the people what they would like to hear.

This passage presents some salient lessons to us. First, God honours, supports and defends His faithful servants. Second, unregenerate minds cannot be used of God to liberate those in captivity. Third, we should be wary of ministers who preach only what people want to hear but avoid the bitter truth of God’s word. Fourth, God will definitely cut off the remembrance of impostors.

Faithfulness to God’s word will definitely draw criticisms and persecutions; but like Jeremiah, we must be resilient in our commitment to the truth. We are to rebuke sin and corruption but should not forget to spread the word of peace in the gospel of Christ to the society in a difficult time like this.

✍THOUGHT FOR THE DAY Test every Spirit and hold on to the truth.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR 1 CHRONICLES 9-11.

MEDITATION

Rebellion in the house of God

  1. The divine verdict
    a. The self styled prophet Shemaiah was accused of not only rebelling against the word of God but also teaching rebellion to others, v32.
    b. Severe judgements that also affected his lineage was pronounced on him, v32.
    c. Untimely death of all the male child that will be born to the family including his own untimely death were the evil verdict pronounced on him, v32.
    d. This agrees with Matthew 5:19 where Jesus said “whosoever shall break one of these least commandments (on the sermon of the mount) and shall teach men so” shall be cut off from the “kingdom of heaven”.
    e. Observe that his children who did not know the Lord will partake of the calamity even though they might not have been born by then. How wonderful is it to be truly saved and free from inherited curses!
  2. The defining villany
    What really constituted what God called his rebellion against the Lord?
    a. He presumptuously sent a message to people of God in the name of the Lord when God had not sent him, vv25,26.
    b. His love for preeminence made him to hijack leadership authority of God’s appointed prophets, vv25,26.
    c. He was calling the appointed ministers of God unprintable names, like “mad” people out of self inspired overzealousness, v26.
    d. He was exercising the authority of a priest and judge, which God had not giving him, to dictate punishments and imprisonment of God sent servants in the name of the Lord, v26.
    e. He was guilty of enviously instigating the people of God against His truly sent servants and their messages, v27.
    f. He defiantly contradicted the clear word of God or prophesy of Jeremiah, the true servant of God, vv27,28.
    g. He, using his communicational ability, successfully and convincingly carried along the naive people of God and gave them false hope by causing them “to trust in a lie”, vv28,31.
    h. He lowered the standard of God’s word by speaking to please the people, telling them that captivity will be brief when the word of God said the opposite, vv28,31.
    i. He deliberately and consciously justified what God did not approve in the name of the Lord, vv31,32.

Ponder to make sure that traits of rebellion are not in you or those that are your ministers you enjoy listening to🤔

  1. The demanded virtues
    a. It is easy to see the virtues that God demand from every child of God. Those virtues are diametrically opposed to rebellion and its “innocent tendencies.”
    b. Presumption, pride and self are root causes even though they may be justified with the name of the Lord.
    c. Meekness, humility, commitment to do the will of God, self crucifixion etc are virtues that God demanded from every true child of God. Jesus said, “learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls, Matthew 11:29.

Question
Can you in your inward heart honestly claim that you are meek and lowly in heart?

The standard of God is not generational biased. The grace of God in the life of those who lived in the generation past will produce the same virtues in those who live in the modern time🤷‍♂️

Prayer points
I want the old time grace of meekness and humility of Christ to be made deeper in my heart🙏
Let you word and your Spirit scan through my heart to expose and remove all tendencies towards rebellion in my heart 🙏
Take away all adoration and admiration that I have for rebellious ministers posing as servants of God🙏
Pray for convictiom and repentance for all ministers that are already treading the path of rebellion in order to have large followership🙏
