SUNDAY MORNING TEACHING

TOPIC:                       SEEING GOD

TEXT:                         Matt. 5:8; Job. 19:25-27

MEMORY VERSE:     Job 19:25-27

For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me”.

Today, we are considering the blessedness of the pure heart. Christianity is a heart religion and not that of outward show which cumulates in the keeping of Mosaic laws – we have three groups of people in this Bible study. They are:

  1. Those who are morally defiled Rom. 3:23
  2. Those who abstain from the outward impurities which God has forbidden. 1John 3:9,4
  3. Those whose hearts have been made pure Matt. 5:8.

Which group do you belong to?. The heart of true Christianity is PURITY OF HEART. This is a subject that has been ignored or stood against by false teachers of all ages, in effect, causing or encouraging inward corruptions.

  1. CONDITIONS FOR SEEING GOD:- Matt. 5:8; Heb. 12:14

 The longing in the heart of every creature of God is to see his Creator. How should it then be with those who have been redeemed and who have experienced God’s love shed abroad in our hearts. Rom. 5:5; 1:8; 14; John 1:12. He want to ascend to God and God also wants us to come to him but His purer eyes cannot behold iniquity within us. Habakkuk. 1:13. If you must enjoy all things that pertain to life and godliness in this world, you must see God. If you must go to heaven, you must see God. But to see God demands of you a PURE HEART. This is the secret of all blessedness and true happiness in this world and getting to heaven. The conditions set before us as a challenge this hour are:

  1. Being pure as He is pure 1John 3:3
  2. Cleansing yourself from all sinfulness of flesh and spirit. 2Cor. 7:1
  • Perfect holiness in the fear of God. 2Cor. 7:1
  1. Loving God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength Mk. 12:30.
  2. CARING TO SEE GOD: Matt. 5:8

 You must be pure in heart to enable you enjoy the unlimited blessedness of seeing God daily and in the preparation for the fitness of ever living with Him thought all eternity. You will see God here on earth:-

  1. In all His providences relating to you, spirit, soul, and body, 1Thess. 5:23; 2Pet. 1:3,4
  2. In all His ordinances and promises as you search His Holy oracles, or hear His ministers Psa. 1:1-3.
  • In your closet as you pour your hearts before Him. Matt. 6:6-8

This is a fit preparation for the mansions in heaven above where you will see Him truly as He is. 1John 3:1-3; Eph. 5:25-27.

Caring to see God? You will totally separate yourself from every form of pollutions/filthiness (2Cor. 6:14-18), abstain from all that have the appearances of evil (1Thess. 5:22) and call upon God trusting in His faithfulness to sanctify you as a child whom He loves. 1Thess. 5:24.

TUESDAY BIBLE STUDY

TOPIC:                       THE GREAT PUBLISHERS

TEXT:                         Luke. 10: 1 -9, 17 – 20.

 

It is our joy to welcome you to our Bible study. Our topic today is still centered on 21st Anniversary Celebration  It is a 3 days celebration. The Theme is: MOVING INTO THE GLORY OF THE LATTER HOUSE. 3 Points to consider

 

  1. THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CELEBRATION: Luke 24: 1-8; Acts 8:1-17.

The importance of the 21st Anniversary celebration of Liberation Power Ministries cannot be over emphasized. Among other things, the following are worthy to note.

  • It is avenue for people to be gathered in the presence of the Lord to be taught.
  • It creates room for people to be saved from their sins.
  • It gives opportunity for people with problems to be attended to and be blessed.
  • It is an avenue to let the world know the value of Christian women.
  • I t makes the believer to always walk with the assurance that life does not end at the grave. We shall rise again.
  • It creates an avenue for us to appreciate God’s Leading and provision for the past 21 years. And much more.
  1. THE NEED FOR PROPER PUBLICITY: Lk. 2:6-17; Matt. 22:1-10; Mk. 5:18-21; Rom. 10:11-15.

Everyone who does a good thing wants people to know or hear about it. Every business makes good returns or profits through proper advert operations – advertisement produces advancement in business.

 

So is our kingdom business. It is the Lord’s will that people are properly informed to enable them effectively participate and enjoy kingdom benefits. Publicity brings – (1) General awareness. (2) Full participation. (3) Spiritual upliftment (4) Total emancipation (5) Fantastic success of the programme. There must be meaningful and purpose driven publicity for people to massively attend our International Women On Fire Conference, 2016.

  1. THE LORD DEPENDS ON YOU: Jer. 51:20-25; Ps. 68:11; Jn. 15-16; Matt. 9:36-38, 1kings 20:12-21.

Whatsoever the Lord wants to do in our generation, he looks up to you; He depends on you. David had served his generation – see Acts. 13:36, Luke 21:1-4; John 12:1-5

 

You must therefore ensure that you properly participate in the things that will make the Conference a huge success, e.g. Be involved in:-

 

(1) Sharing invitation cards and handbills.  (2) Your personal invitation of your friends and neighbours.  (3) Your financial support.  (4) Your personal and corporate prayer and fasting.  (5)  Your regular presence throughout the Programme. Remember; the success of the programme is also your own success.

The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it”.

 

It is our joy to welcome you to our Sunday Service today. Our topic today is still centered on 21st Anniversary Celebration, coming up this week end.

 

The theme for this year’s Anniversary is entitled: Moving The Glory of The Latter House. The 21st Anniversary celebration will kick off from Friday this week the 24th of November, 2017 to end on Sunday, the 26th.

We are today to address ourselves on the roles each of play to make the celebration a success. Three points would be considered.

 

  1. THE IMPORTANCE OF THE 21ST ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION: Acts 8:26-38; Mark 2:1-12; Matt. 16:13-19; Ps. 107: 1 – 10

The importance of the 21st Anniversary Celebration of Liberation Power Ministries cannot be over emphasized. Among other things, the following are worthy of note.

  • It is an avenue for people to be gathered in the presence of the Lord to be taught.
  • It creates room for people to be saved from their sin.
  • It gives opportunity for people with problems to be attended to and be blessed.
  • It is an avenue for church to know and assess how far the Lord has taken us.
  • It gives opportunity for people to know their enemies and how to conquer them as we continue.
  • To stir up worshippers to do more for more exploits.

 

 

  1. THE NEED FOR PROPER PUBLICITY: Luke. 2:1-17; Matt. 22:1-10; Mk. 5:18-21; Rom. 10:11-15.

Everyone who does a good thing wants people to know or hear about it. Every business makes good returns or profits through proper advert operations – (advertisement produces advancement in business).

 

So is our kingdom business. It is the Lord’s will that people are properly informed to enable them effectively participate and enjoy kingdom benefits. Publicity brings – (1) General awareness. (2) Full participation. (3) Spiritual upliftment (4) Total emancipation (5) Fantastic success of the programme. There must be meaningful and purposeful publicity to make this programme a success.

 

 

  1. THE LORD DEPENDS ON YOU: Jer. 51:20-25; Ps. 68:11; Jn. 15-16; Matt. 9:36-38.

ARGUMENTATIVE PRAYER

ARGUMENTATIVE PRAYER

SUNDAY MORNING TEACHING.

 

TOPIC:                      ARGUMENTATIVE PRAYER

TEXT:                        Gen. 18:23-33

MEMORY VERSE: Isaiah 43;26

“Put me in remembrance: Lest us plead together: Declare thou, that thou mayest be justified”.

You are all welcome to the Sunday Morning Teaching Session.

Because of the place and position of prayer in the Church, we have been taking some serious steps to look at the subject not only in theory but in the very doing of the business of prayer. We have been asked to start to pray, continue in prayer and never stop to pray, pray with authority.

 

Today, we are to study on the topic “ARGUMENTATIVE PRAYER”. A proper understanding of this kind of prayer puts the saints on the position of the Christian Barrister at Law who can argue out his case and get profitable results. The success of the forth coming 21st Anniversary Celebration is dependent on Effectual Fervent prayer of the righteous.

 

If you can properly argue your case in a logical form, you can both turn God to your side and turn the devil out and win the case; thus getting answers to your prayers.

We shall consider 3 points.

  1. A CASE IN THE COURT: Exod. 32:7-10 Gen. 32:3-7; 2Chron. 20:1-4; Luke 4:9-11.

Every problem we face is a case in the court. It could be scarcity of food, sickness, sin that is committed, contracts we are pursuing, wife or husband to marry etc.

If we win the case we get a positive answer. If we loose it, it means we do not have enough points to convince the Judge of the whole earth. Gen. 18:23-25. That challenge you have is a case in court.

 

  1. A BRILLIANT BARRISTER BEFORE THE JUDGE. GEN. 18:23-26; Exod. 32:9-14; Num. 14:11-20; Isaiah 42:25,26, 2Tim. 2:15, Col. 3:16.

It takes logical, brilliant and bold to win a case among other things. For one to adequately convince the Judge of the whole earth and put off the adversary, one must have a working knowledge of the scriptures  promises and practice of the scriptures. You must produce strong reasons why you must win the cease.

 

As an intelligent, Lawyer you should be able to present your case in a logical sequence, appealing to the power and personality of God and the fact that His words must not be broken, reminding him and challenging Him of who He is and be able to make the devil to know who you are, your position and power before God. Make him know that he has no right to hinder you from getting your hearts desire.

 

  1. POSITIVE RESULTS THROUGH PRODUCTIVE ARGUMENTS. Exod. 32:11-14,

Num. 14:13-20

At the end of every intelligent and logical, scripture backed argument there is bound to be victory. Isaiah 43:26. To be justified means to win the case, to have a positive answer to our prayer, it means to overcome the devil.

 

This is one of the greatest types of prayer in the Bible. Learn to pray this way, and you will never loose any battle. If you equip yourself with strong points, scriptural reasons and dynamic presentation of your case, your victory is sure. Avoid beating about the bush. Go to the point and convince the Judge why you must have what you are arguing for. He will not deny you if you argue to the point.

TUESDAY DIVISIONAL BIBLE STUDY

TOPIC:                                 MARKS OF PERSONAL REVIVAL AND CHURCH RENEWAL.

TEXT:                                   Acts. 2:41-47.

It is my joy to have you in Bible study session today. I can believe that revival has already started with some people. This is because of the way I see the commitment of some of us to the Bible Study sessions..  Don’t relent until your own revival comes.

Our topic today has to do with what we can see in the life of a person who is enjoying revival.

We shall look at it under 3 sub-headings.

 

 1)        IMPORTANCE OF REVIVAL: Acts. 2:41-47; 4:31-37; 8:1-8.

The importance of revival cannot be over stressed. Without revival many evil and bad things would happen.

  1. You will not enjoy God’s serve.
  2. Fellowship would be boring.
  • The devil would make life difficult for you.
  1. Strange and many unpleasant things would be happening to you, eg. In business etc.
  2. You would consciously or unconsciously degenerate to death spiritually and even physically.

To avoid these ugly situations, we must press forward and be revived. See Rev. 3:2-3.

 2)        IMPORTUNITY FOR REVIVAL: Luke 11:5-10; Heb. 10:35-39; Heb. 6:11-12

The moment one discovers the need of revival, the battle for revival has started. You must never give up until He comes and rains righteousness (revival) upon you. You must be desperate –

  1. In waiting upon the Lord
  2. In devotional study of God’s word.
  3. In aggressive, earnest and fervent prayers.
  4. Attending revival programmes.

These and others you must do until something happens.

 

3)        MARKS OF REVIVAL: Acts. 2:1-47; 4:31-37; 8:1-8.

It is not difficult to know when either a church or an individual is revived. Many of the following would take place –

  1. i) God – consciousness ii) Tender heartedness   iii) Spirit of unity   iv) Urge for prayers   v) Desire for soul winning   vi) Presence of the fruit and the gifts of the Spirit   vii) Freshness in the spirit.

Others include fruitfulness, financial breakthrough, uncommon favour, joyful obedience to the word of God, stirring up others with love to serve the Lord. The zeal to serve God and the joy of the Lord are openly manifest as light shinning on the face of a revival one. You can have this experience.

SIGNS OF CHRIST’S SECOND COMING

SUNDAY MORNING TEACHING

TOPIC:                                              SIGNS OF CHRIST’S SECOND COMING  

TEXT:                                                Acts. 1:9-11; Matt. 24:3-14, 23-35; Rev. 1:7

MEMORY VERSE:                                     MATT. 24:30

“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory”.

 

Welcome to the Sunday Morning study of the word of God. The study of today is part of the series on the studies of the last days. Our topic today is entitled: Signs of Christ’s Second Coming. This presupposes the fact that Christ has come before. That was his first coming.

During His first coming, (i) He came as a lamb to take away the sins of the world. (ii) He came to die for sinners. (iii) He came to be judged by sinners.

At His Second Coming: (i) He will come as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. (ii) He will come to judge unrepentant sinners. (iii) He will come as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation”. Heb. 9:28.

Three points would be treated:

 

  1. THE CERTAINTY OF CHRIST’S SECOND COMING: Acts. 1:10-11; Matt. 26:63-64; Matt. 25:31-32; Matt. 24:27, 36-39; Rev. 1:7.

 

 

The Second Coming of Christ is a confirmed fact in the scriptures by the prophets, by Christ Himself, by angels and by the Apostles. Christ’s first coming was predicted and prophesied and became fulfilled. Even so, the prophecies and predictions about His Second Coming will come through because “scriptures cannot be broken”. John. 10:35.

The exact time however of His coming is not known. The word of God declares that it will be sudden and that some signs will precede his coming.

 

  1. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE RAPTURE AND THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST. 1Thes. 4:13-18; 1Corinth. 15:51-55; Rev. 1:7; matt. 25:31-32

           

There should be a clarification concerning the Rapture of the Saints and the Second Coming of Christ. These are two different events.

  1. At the time of the Rapture, Christ will come for only the saints who will rise up or caught up to meet him in the air.

At the Second Coming, Christ will return with the Saints to rule and to reign on earth.

  1. The Rapture will take place before the Great tribulation while the Second Coming will take place at the end of the Great Tribulation.
  2. There are no signs for the Rapture, but there are signs before the Second Coming of Christ.

As believers, what we are expecting now is the Rapture which will be succeeded by the appearance of the Ant-Christ and the Great Tribulation.

 

  1. THE SIGNS OF CHRIST’S SECOND COMING: Matt. 24:3-28.

There are many signs concerning the time of the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus.  Some of these are:

  • There will be deception. (b) False Christ’s and False Prophets. (c) Wars and rumours of wars. (d) Natural disasters e.g earthquakes, strange and destructive storms, great floods. (e) Famine (f) Pestilences and strange, incurable sicknesses (g) Lawlessness (h) increase in lying wonders and miracles (i) Backsliding of believers. (j) Increase of worldliness and worldly pleasures and pursuits.

You should know that these are signs of His second coming which will take place after the rapture. You should therefore know by common sense that the Rapture could take place any time from now. If you miss the Rapture, you will go through the Great Tribulation and suffer the reign of the Anti-Christ. Read. Matt. 25:13.
