Dear Father, Who art in heaven, hallow be Thy Name. Your children are saying Lord You are Worthy. Who is like unto Thee O! Lord, Father there is none to be compared with Thee, You are Excellent, You are Wonderful, and there is none like Thee.

Indeed, You are Wonderful! At the mention of Your Name, great things happens. The blind see, the lame walk, the dumb speaks at the mention of Your Name O! Lord, every knee (need) shall bow and every tongue must confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God in heaven.

For Thy Name sake lead me O! Lord on the path of life, do not allow the enemy lead me astray, for in Your favour, there is life. True fellowship is with You and Your Son, Jesus Christ Who lives and reign for ever (1 Jn 1:3)

Beloved, hope you had a nice and a peaceful weekend. We are glad to welcome again to a wonderful week ahead of you. The Lord our God will manifest Himself afresh to you and the entire household of God. Blessed be The Name of Lord.

Many has wandered away like the prodigal son, our Father is ever will to take them back and love them as His own. He is willing to throw a feast for their sake and reunite with them. (Deut 7:8)

Come along with me as we meditate on the Word that faileth not:

 

“From Me is thy fruit found.” Hosea 14:8

 

Our fruit is found from our God as to union. The fruit of the branch is directly traceable to the root. Sever the connection, the branch dies, and no fruit is produced. By virtue of our union with Christ we bring forth fruit. Every bunch of grapes have been first in the root, it has passed through the stem, and flowed through the sap vessels, and fashioned itself externally into fruit, but it was first in the stem; so also every good work was first in Christ, and then is brought forth in us. O Christian, prize this precious union to Christ; for it must be the source of all the fruitfulness which thou canst hope to know. If thou wert not joined to Jesus Christ, thou wouldst be a barren bough indeed.

Our fruit comes from God as to spiritual providence. When the dew-drops fall from heaven, when the cloud looks down from on high, and is about to distil its liquid treasure, when the bright sun swells the berries of the cluster, each heavenly boon may whisper to the tree and say, “From me is thy fruit found.” The fruit owes much to the root—that is essential to fruitfulness—but it owes very much also to external influences. How much we owe to God’s grace-providence! in which He provides us constantly with quickening, teaching, consolation, strength, or whatever else we want. To this we owe our all of usefulness or virtue.

Our fruit comes from God as to wise husbandry. The gardener’s sharp-edged knife promotes the fruitfulness of the tree, by thinning the clusters, and by cutting off superfluous shoots. So is it, Christian, with that pruning which the Lord gives to thee. “My Father is the husbandman. Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away; and every branch that beareth fruit He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.” Since our God is the author of our spiritual graces, let us give to Him all the glory of our salvation.

In him we have our redemption through his blood and forgiveness of our trespasses according to the riches of his grace…unto the praise of His glory (Eph 1:7-14). The Word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than two edged sword (Heb 4:12). An encounter with this Word will lift you from obscurity to light, it will clear and subdue every powers and principalities and make you sit with Jesus far above. Are ready for such an encounter? Another step to take, read the message below and experience the exceeding greatness of His power through His Word unto salvation by the Holy Spirit:

“The exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead.” Ephesians 1:19,20

In the resurrection of Christ, as in our salvation, there was put forth nothing short of a divine power. What shall we say of those who think that conversion is wrought by the free will of man, and is due to his own betterness of disposition? When we shall see the dead rise from the grave by their own power, then may we expect to see ungodly sinners of their own free will turning to Christ.

It is not the word preached, nor the word read in itself; all quickening power proceeds from the Holy Ghost. This power was irresistible. All the soldiers and the high priests could not keep the body of Christ in the tomb; Death himself could not hold Jesus in his bonds: even thus irresistible is the power put forth in the believer when he is raised to newness of life.

No sin, no corruption, no devils in hell nor sinners upon earth, can stay the hand of God’s grace when it intends to convert a man. If God Omnipotent says, “Thou shalt,” man shall not say, “I will not.” Observe that the power which raised Christ from the dead was glorious. It reflected honour upon God and wrought dismay in the hosts of evil. So there is great glory to God in the conversion of every sinner.

It was everlasting power. “Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over Him.” So we, being raised from the dead, go not back to our dead works nor to our old corruptions, but we live unto God. “Because He lives we live also.” “For we are dead, and our life is hid with Christ in God.” “Like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”

Lastly, in the text mark the union of the new life to Jesus. The same power which raised the Head works life in the members. What a blessing to be quickened together with Christ!

We are starting the week with the resurrection Jesus, beloved everything dead in you resurrect today through same power that resurrected Christ from death. Every of your sins, the Lord will remember no more (Jer 31:34). The Lord did not call us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. (1 Thess 4:7) and we will be sons and daughters unto Him and He, our Father, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Cor 6:18). Then shall we say “what the exceeding of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His Mighty Power.

Beloved, before we conclude today, I want you to tap into this rheme which the Lord gave me understanding and when my eyes of understanding was opened. I told the devil to get behind me from that very moment.” Christ is the head of church and they that believed in Him is His body (Eph 1: 22- 23). I told sickness to get behind me, I faced fear boldly and said, pack and go,  I told poverty that there is no vacancy any more ‘cos “I am the “body of Christ” and anything that cannot be find in Jesus cannot be found in me And Jesus said, where He is, I may be also (Jn 14:3) for He gave Himself up for my sins (Gal 1:4) and blessed is man whose sins are covered (Ps 32 :1). For we are Christ’s and Christ is God’s (1Cor 3:23). Bring your own humiliation under Christ and you are settled forever.

Lord, Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet (Ps 119:105). Help me to stand in the liberty Christ hath made me free and not entangle again with the yoke of bondage (Gal 5:1). Uphold me Lord to the end, that I will obtain the crown of life.  Jehovah is my strength and my song and also my salvation and with joy I draw water out of the wells of salvation (Isa 12:2-3)

This week is blessed in Him that give songs in the night. To Him be all the glory forever and ever.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
