Title - Remember me Oh Lord

Teacher:- Pastor Mrs Hope Orimolusi

There is no one on earth that is not going through one challenge or the other.
God indeed sees when you are going through difficulties, however, he wants you to talk to Him about it.

It is not that God has forgotten, but he desires that we remind Him of His promises to us
He is the Almighty God  who can do all things and bring to pass what he has promised.

A Biblical Example of someone God remembered is king Hezekiah.

Why God answered his prayers
a) He Prayed Is 38:2b
b) He poured out his heart to God Is 38.3
c) He had a perfect heart Ps 24:3-4
d) He walked with God in truth Ps 38:3
e: He did what was good in His sight

What God can remember you for:
1) God can remember your righteousness and perfect heart Is 38.3
2) He can remember His covenant with you Ex 2.24
3) He can remember your offerings Acts 10:1-4
4) He can remember your prayers Gen 19.29 Luke 1:5-13
5) He can remember your sacrifices and offering Neh 5.19 & 13.14
6) He can remember His Word concerning you Is 41.21, Is 43.26

13th January 2017 - Friday Night Vigil

Title - Dreams

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

God has several means of communicating with us. It could be through his word, visions, dreams etc.
Today, we would discuss dreams

Outline 1:

  • What does the term 'Dream' mean?

Outline 2:

  • Sources of Dreams

Outline 3:

  • Operations of Dreams/ How Dreams Work

Outline 4:

  • The Involvment of Jesus in all our dreams

What does the term 'Dream' mean?

- It is something both children and adults experience during our sleep
- It could also be your aspirations in life (i.e. what you yearn to become)

Sources of Dreams

1) Could come from multiple activities Ecc 5:3 &7

The Implications of this source
  • It is not a reliable source
  • The devil could manipulate your thoughts to his advantage (Flesh is magnified)

2) It could come through satanic agents

The Implications of this source
  • The devil uses this as a medium to implant sicknesses, diseases and other evil things into a person's life
  • The devil uses this as a medium terrorize a person 
  • Could cause a person to have sexual intercourse unwillingly in their sleep
  • The devil uses this as a medium to destroy a person's destiny

3) It could come through God Almighty

The Implications of this source
  • It comes with peace & joy. The purpose is to guide and direct your path. Isaiah 30.21
  • A medium to warn us of what is to come/impending (future) Gen 41:1-36, Gen 20:1-10
  • A medium to tell us about God's promises
  • To punish every enemy our soul Matthew 27.19
  • A medium to comfort and encourage those that love God
  • A medium to avoid the bait of the devil (Matthew 2:13-19)

Key Point

  • If you have good dreams, pray it to reality
  • You don't have to tell everyone about your dreams cause not everyone that smiles with you wishes you well Gen 37.5
  • Don't ignore bad dreams. Pray it doesn't come to reality Isaiah 7.7
