Title - Produce Your Cause

Main Text:-  Isaiah 38: 1-5.

Bible Passages:- Dan 1:8, Isaiah 49, Jeremiah 33:3

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi.

A lawyer is somebody that goes to the court with facts. He is aware there is a plaintiff and a defendant. Both parties will have their individual lawyers.
It is likely the guilty party gets away with a crime or an offence committed if he/she has a very good lawyer.

Also, in the spiritual realm, God wants us to plead our cause before Him.

In the main text of today's reading (Isaiah 38: 1-5), although it was Hezekiah's time to die, he pleaded with God to remember how he served Him whole heartedly. Hence God answered his prayer and added 15 years to his life.

Let us break down the main text of today verse by verse:

Isaiah 38: 1
We are made to understand Hezekiah was a man that loved God with the whole of his heart yet he fell sick.
this tells us anybody sickness is something that could happen to anyone not just sinners.
King Hezekiah was so sick the bible recorded he was close to death. 
This proves that challenges will come at a stage in our lives.
Isaiah 38: 2
Hezekiah prayed to the Lord.
Although challenges will come at some stage in our lives, we must turn to God in prayer

Isaiah 38: 3.
Remember Now:
When communication with God through prayer, do you have a case to plead before Him ?
Remember the devil is an accuser of brethren
Hence you have to present yourself clean before God so the devil has nothing to use against you.

How can we make God remember us for Good ?
1. Evangelism
2.Praising God
3.Cheerful giving
4. Consecration to God Dan 1:8, Isiah 49, Jer 33:3

Isaiah 38: 4-5
This verse proves God can break  a protocol.
Even if scientist have proved there is no hope for you regarding a certain sickness or whatever situation you find yourself, remember God is more than able to break that protocol.
Put God First in everything you do and He will always be there for you.

Have a blessed week :)

Sunday 26th January 2014 (First Service)

Title - Evangelism

Main Text:-  John 15: 15-16.

Bible Passages:- Mathew 28:19-20, Acts 9:36, Mark 16:18

Teacher:- Mr Sam Johnson.

It is very important to know once you receive, you have to give back as well.

You are not a complete christian if you do not participate in Evangelism
In the book of John 15:15 -16, God commanded us to go and bear fruit (that is to win souls for God).

If we follow God's command and evangelize, we will bring peace to our community and the nation as a whole.

There will be no records of:
Bombing churches,
attacking schools
Murder and all sorts of detestable things present in our world today etc

Matthew 18:19-20 also references Jesus' command to teach ALL nations.

Let us take evangelism seriously everywhere we go.
In church, at work, in school and anywhere else we may find ourselves

There are lots of souls awaiting your call.
Some are lonely, depressed, broken hearted and it is our responsibility as Christians to draw them close to God

Let us involve ourselves in God's business.
Let us obey God's words regarding evangelism.
Let us pray that we shall be useful for God's glory.
Remember there is an account of everything you do here on Earth.
Seek first the kingdom of God and all other things shall be added unto you.

Have a blessed Sunday

Let us take King Solomon as an example.

God gave him the right to ask for whatever he needed, yet he chose wisdom over riches and wealth.

Now God is asking us "what do we want for 2014"?

Let us be encouraged to request for something of substance instead chasing after shadows.

All we need in the year 2014 is God's presence.
Anyone that secures God's presence is guaranteed.

5.Gives Direction 
God does not want you to leave a life of confustion in any aspect.
God's presence gives direction Ex: 13- 17 -2.
The only person that can give us the right direction is God only.

6.Guarantees Favour and prosperity Gen 39.2, Gen 39.21.
These bible passages explains God made Joseph prosperous and showed him mercy becaus His presence was with Joseph.
