Title - Redeeming The Time

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

Main Text:- Ephesians 5.16

To redeem means to buy something back.
For example, when we say Christ has redeemed us, it means Christ has bought us back with His blood from the dungeon of sin
Anyone who steals your time steals your destiny.
It is also to pay attention to the needful. Don't push till tomorrow what needs to be done today.

Why Must we Redeem Time

  • Because the days are evil (Matt 24:6-13)

The world is in chaos
You can't be a friend to the world and your past sinful life and God at the same time (Matt 5:11-12)

  • False prophets are also arising so we have to be discerning.
  • Many shall also be offended. In this life, offences will come, but don't waste time holding grudges. You must forgive. Mark 11:25
  • Many Christians will backslide. There will be a falling away. Backsliding is a dangerous state. 2Thess 2:3.
  •  The love of many will wax cold (Matt 24.12)
  •  Deceptive Prophets will deceive many

How to Redeem Time
1) Return to God (with all of your heart). Go back to the drawing board and ask God to show you where you missed it.
The rapture can take place at any time.
2) Intensify soul winning. John 9:4

Title - The Glamour of Heaven

Teacher:- Pastor Kola

Main Text:- 2 Corinthians 5:1-5

Everyone's time on earth is limited because earth is not our home. The book of Heb 11:13, describes us as strangers on earth.

There are two final destinations after life on earth - Heaven or hell Matt 25.46
It is important to do all you can to make it into His kingdom

Journey to heaven is fun because

1) You are carried by angels (Luke 16.22)

2) Those taken by rapture will be welcomed with great carnivals

3) It is a place of victory & celebration Rev 19:1-7

4) It is stunningly beautiful (Rev 21.21-25)

5) There will be series of events (appreciation day) 2 Cor 5:9-10

6) There will be a Marriage Party (Rev 19.9)

How Do I prepare for Heaven

1) By making my relationship with Jesus intimate to the end (Rom 8:3-39)

2) By refusing to faint or lose heart no matter the situation (Phil 1:20-21, 2 Cor 4:16-17, Mark 13.13, John 16.33)

3) By staying clear of sin (Rev 21:26-27, Rev 21.8, Matthew 15:19-20)

4) Understanding the devices of the devil (1 Cor 2.11, 2 Cor 11:14)

5) Not loving the world and things of the world ( 1 John 2:15-17).

6) Do all you can to make your journey to heaven a reality(2 Tim 4:7-8).
And God Himself who is faithful, will make it possible for you 
Have a Blessed Week

Title - A Meal of Reflection

Teacher:- Pastor Kola

Main Text:- John 21:15-17

In the main text, Jesus repeatedly asked Peter (three times) to confirm he truly loved Him.
This is because,

1 -  God wants us to be sure of our love for Him (2 Cor 13.5)

2 - God wants His love for us to be reciprocal (1 John 4.19, Mark 12:30)

3 - When you love God, you would love others (Phil 2:3-4)

4) Love is about action (not just words) John 3:16. You need to use your skills, talents, time, resources etc for God's glory.
