Father we declare that we love Thee, we declared an everlasting love for You, Father we declared that we love You we declare an everlasting love for. Who is like unto Thee, O Lord! Who is like unto Thee, O Lord! Among the gods who is like Thee You are glorious in Holiness fearful in praises doing wonder, alleluia.

Yes Lord we that our love to you Father, for how else can we show our gratitude to you other than to reverence you, to fear You and to serve You. Thank You for the privilege given us to be in Your Presence, glory be Your Holy Name forever and ever in Jesus Name.

Beloved, Jesus our Lord and Saviour died for us that we may live. Now if you are asked “how do you pay back this kindness extended to You by our Lord Jesus.” What will be your answer? Please do send in your answer through our email address, we want hear you.

Okay, if am asked this question my answer will be the following- firstly, I will thank and praise God continually. Secondly, I will devote to God through loving Him with all my heart, with all my soul and all my strength. Then I will be committed in service to the One who did not allow me to suffer rather gave me a gift that no money can buy – that is the gift of eternal life. Praise God.

Do you actually know what it cost God to shower His mercies and eternal life to you? you will discover it when you read the message below.

That even when Christ was crying on the cross, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” which means “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?” Matt 27:46 (NLT)

Why would a Father not answer such a cry from wondered heart? Why will God be silent at such a time in His son life? All these answers will be provided in the message below.

Beloved, this is last Wednesday in this month and we must be strategic in our prayer. We must pray a prayer that must be answered. We must open our mouth wide and call unto Jesus to help your unbelief.

What about that soul(s) that must come to Jesus. Are willing to intercede on their behalf till they surrender their lives to Jesus Christ? If Jesus cried to save, will you be willing to do the same for that brother or sister who must give his/ her life to our Lord Jesus.

Will you be willing to surrender your will to the will of God? This and many more you will discover below. Let’s get going:

During His earthly life, He offered prayers and appeals, with loud cries and tears, to the One who was able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence.—Hebrews 5:7

The life of Jesus provides the model for our prayer lives. God is seeking to mold us into the image of His Son (Col. 1:27–28). If we are to act like Christ, our prayer lives must be conformed to His. Many Christians are unwilling to pay the price that Jesus paid when it comes to interceding with God. Jesus’ prayers came with vehement cries and tears and, “because of His godly fear,” He was heard by the Father.

Why then, did the Father refuse His request? It was not due to any sin in Jesus’ life, nor was it because the Father did not love His Son. The Father said no, despite the unfathomable love He had for His Son, because He knew He could not spare His Son and save a world. Likewise, the Lord cannot always spare you and your family and complete His redemptive work in those around you.

Are you willing for God to deny your pleadings? Will you intercede with the Father so deeply and intimately that even in the midst of your tears you are able to say, “Nevertheless, not my will but thine be done?” The Father will always relate to you out of the context of His love for a lost world. Has God said no to one of your requests recently? Accept His answer. Have you been learning obedience through what you have been suffering (Heb. 5:8)? If you have, God may choose to make you a source of salvation to others even as He did with His Son.

Yes! This last sentence convicted me when I was not sure if God was the One speaking to me. I will be hearing a vice behind me as I walk on the road “God want to save you to save souls, to heal the broken heartened and on several occasion I was prayer and was seeking direction.

God sent someone to me and I want to Bible College to be trained and in addition I have attended several other courses to enhance my calling.

In case you are asking your way on how to bring salvation to others, beloved you can through evangelism and witnessing.

Someone is asking what is the difference between the two? While Evangelism is Christ centered; witnessing is sharing your personal and non-personal experience to someone about what God did in your life in order to drive home the goodness of God. Witnessing can be during evangelism or otherwise.

While must we be about our fathers’ business. The next text said it all. Jesus told us that his coming will be unexpected. He said it will be like a thief. Blessed is He that watcheth. So read on:

              “Blessed is he that watcheth.” Revelation 16:15  

 

“We die daily,” said the apostle. This was the life of the early Christians; they went everywhere with their lives in their hands. We are not in this day called to pass through the same fearful persecutions: if we were, the Lord would give us grace to bear the test; but the tests of Christian life, at the present moment, though outwardly not so terrible, are yet more likely to overcome us than even those of the fiery age.

We have to bear the sneer of the world—that is little; its blandishments, its soft words, its oily speeches, its fawning, its hypocrisy, are far worse. Our danger is lest we grow rich and become proud, lest we give ourselves up to the fashions of this present evil world, and lose our faith. Or if wealth be not the trial, worldly care is quite as mischievous.

If we cannot be torn in pieces by the roaring lion, if we may be hugged to death by the bear, the devil little cares which it is, so long as he destroys our love to Christ, and our confidence in Him. I fear me that the Christian church is far more likely to lose her integrity in these soft and silken days than in those rougher times.

We must be awake now, for we traverse the enchanted ground, and are most likely to fall asleep to our own undoing, unless our faith in Jesus be a reality, and our love to Jesus a vehement flame. Many in these days of easy profession are likely to prove tares, and not wheat; hypocrites with fair masks on their faces, but not the true-born children of the living God.

Christian, do not think that these are times in which you can dispense with watchfulness or with holy ardour; you need these things more than ever, and may God the eternal Spirit display His omnipotence in you, that you may be able to say, in all these softer things, as well as in the rougher, “We are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.”

Beloved, let us therefore cry unto our Father, who will graciously answer us as we call on Him. Let us also mention names of those that come to knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Remember like our last Wednesday ministration taught us that God loves it better when we intercede for others. So let us delight our Father as we pray today.

Heavenly Father answer us as we call on today. May it please you to bless us like never before. Give us the grace to tarry in the place of prayer and never be tried in Jesus Name.

Beloved, let us pray.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
