All honour, All glory, All power to You. Holy Father, we worship You. Precious Jesus our Saviour, Holy Spirit we wait on You, Holy Spirit we wait you, For f-i-r-e. Let the Spirit of the Lord comes down, amen! 2x alleluia, let the Spirit of the Lord from heaven come down, let the Spirit of the Lord comes down.
Father we glorify and we praise Your Name, we worship You for Who You are, Blessed Redeemer, You are greater than the greatest, Older than the oldest. Wonderful God, thank You for all Your doings from the first month of the year to the eleventh month. You have not fail to be God. Gracious Redeemer, we look up to You for the remaining months of the year to show forth Your praise in our live.
Beloved, has God been Faithful to you? Has the events of the year perplexed you? Are you troubled at every sides? Have you been toiling all through the year upon till now and it seem as if you will get through your dreams, visions and desires and the year is running off again?
Have good news for you. We have a God that faileth not, ever faithful, forever dependable. Lean on Him, for in Him we are safe and secure from all alarms. He is our everlasting arms.
Let us be grateful to God for the gift of a new month, our God of eleventh hour will be your Host. He will show up in that situation be it health, be it finances, job, fruitfulness of any kind, ministry, business and career. Our God will show up for you. Do not be afraid just lean on the everlasting arms, He will see you through all the dangerous terrain. Surely, He will (Jas 1:6).
We are pleased to welcome you into the month “Divine Interventions” (Isa 60:1-22; Isa 48:17). The Spirit of God will appear in all areas of concerns at this eleventh hour and show Himself as thy God. In all those knotty issues, the God that can never be late will show forth and deliver on point on your behalf.
Beloved, for every of your shame you will receive double honour. Your garment of heaviness will be change into gladness. You are ending this year in a grand style. It does not matter what the enemy is saying today but He Who is enthroned in heaven has said a thing and it must come to pass, no power can reverse it (Isa 43:13)
Come with me as we consider another interesting work of grace in the life of a believer. This message is important that we have bring it forth to help us on our race at this end time:
“The Church in thy house.” Philemon 1:2
Is there a Church in this house? Are parents, children, friends, servants, all members of it? or are some still unconverted? Let us pause here and let the question go round—Am I a member of the Church in this house? How would father’s heart leap for joy, and mother’s eyes fill with holy tears if from the eldest to the youngest all were saved! Let us pray for this great mercy until the Lord shall grant it to us.
Probably it had been the dearest object of Philemon’s desires to have all his household saved; but it was not at first granted him in its fulness. He had a wicked servant, Onesimus, who, having wronged him, ran away from his service. His master’s prayers followed him, and at last, as God would have it, Onesimus was led to hear Paul preach; his heart was touched, and he returned to Philemon, not only to be a faithful servant, but a brother beloved, adding another member to the Church in Philemon’s house.
Is there an unconverted servant or child absent this morning? Make special supplication that such may, on their return to their home, gladden all hearts with good news of what grace has done! Is there one present? Let him partake in the same earnest entreaty.
If there be such a Church in our house, let us order it well, and let all act as in the sight of God. Let us move in the common affairs of life with studied holiness, diligence, kindness, and integrity. More is expected of a Church than of an ordinary household; family worship must, in such a case, be more devout and hearty; internal love must be more warm and unbroken, and external conduct must be more sanctified and Christlike.
We need not fear that the smallness of our number will put us out of the list of Churches, for the Holy Spirit has here enrolled a family-church in the inspired book of remembrance. As a Church let us now draw nigh to the great head of the one Church universal, and let us beseech Him to give us grace to shine before men to the glory of His name.
Beloved, peradventure you are afraid for any member of your home, pray for them as we have seen above, is the Holy Spirit that convict not by our own power but His. It is so important that none of us miss this opportunity to return back to God. Why? Because the day of the Lord is at hand. Let us be living ready everyday as we don’t know when His second appearing will be.
Always ask this question to yourself “Am I rapture ready?” because life after rapture will be unbearable and terrible for every standing child of God. it is written (Rev 13:1-9; Heb 11:7;15-16;25-26; 1 Pet 2:11-12):
“And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away: so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:39
Universal was the doom, neither rich nor poor escaped: the learned and the illiterate, the admired and the abhorred, the religious and the profane, the old and the young, all sank in one common ruin. Some had doubtless ridiculed the patriarch—where now their merry jests? Others had threatened him for his zeal which they counted madness—where now their boastings and hard speeches?
The critic who judged the old man’s work is drowned in the same sea which covers his sneering companions. Those who spoke patronizingly of the good man’s fidelity to his convictions, but shared not in them, have sunk to rise no more, and the workers who for pay helped to build the wondrous ark, are all lost also. The flood swept them all away, and made no single exception. Even so, out of Christ, final destruction is sure to every man of woman born; no rank, possession, or character, shall suffice to save a single soul who has not believed in the Lord Jesus. My soul, behold this wide-spread judgment and tremble at it.
How marvellous the general apathy! They were all eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, till the awful morning dawned. There was not one wise man upon earth out of the ark. Folly duped the whole race, folly as to self-preservation—the most foolish of all follies. Folly in doubting the most true God—the most malignant of fooleries. Strange, my soul, is it not? All men are negligent of their souls till grace gives them reason, then they leave their madness and act like rational beings, but not till then.
All, blessed be God, were safe in the ark, no ruin entered there. From the huge elephant down to the tiny mouse all were safe. The timid hare was equally secure with the courageous lion, the helpless cony as safe as the laborious ox. All are safe in Jesus. My soul, art thou in Him?
If you have read concerning the flood that destroyed everything during Noah time, beloved, how terrible will the end of everything be. Think again and run for your dear life while it is still day least the night come when no man can work again. It is not something that can be wished away. To be fore-warned is to be fore-armed.
Let us therefore be on our guide and live righteously for His second appearing in our business, career, ministry, family and personal life. Let us not be found wanting, cheating, deceiving, lying in any of above mentioned and those you will add to it. Praise God.
Beloved, ask me about the message of today, I will tag it over-spilling grace. Still pointing to the “exceeding grace” extending to us.
Once again welcome to this great month of “Divine Intervention”. Fellow us through and together we see the wonders of God. We will consider those who had experienced this miracle in the past and in our time.
As I am writing this piece, I experienced in first intervention early this morning confirming this saying of His. His promises are real. Come believing without wavering and you will be blessed (Jas 1:6).
Beloved, don’t miss a date with us. The Spirit of the Lord will do you good.
Remain blessed in the Lord
