HOW DO YOU TREAT THE TEMPLE OF GOD IN YOU?

BY EVANGELIST HENRY ELOCHUKWU

This is what I preached in a pastor’s conference when I was just 15 years old and they contacted doc. Please read carefully and judge this matter for yourself. I told them–”Do you know you are a Spirit and that Spirit lives in a house called The Body or flesh” once the body is weak, tortured or destroyed the spirit leaves it(death).This is an act of spirits naturally.

This is why people die in sickness, accidents,viruses, bullets etc, because their spirit got tired of that inhabitations called”BODY”. As the body became weaker than the spirit could sustain. Spirit naturally don’t inhabits weak bodies. Even Jesus gave up the Ghost on the cross after being tortured and demoralized..

This is Why God wishes you to be in good health first, even before your soul prosper, your body is the first thing He needs before your soul Your soul is not as important as your Body is to God, because the soul can only be born again through the body. A spirit or soul can not accept Jesus or become a born again except it dwells in a flesh or body and your body is all he needs to execute His plans here on earth.

Even God couldn’t Redeem man until He was birthed or manifested in a flesh or body.

God needs your body more than you do that is why He provides an atmosphere Called ”HEALING EXPERIENCE”– a system provided for restoration or replacement of weak parts of the body from its original place of creation.

Spirits can’t be born again..once a sinner dies, he can’t get born again because of his body is the only license the spirit have to access God or Satan. Satan do not posses spirit, he possess bodies.

Your body is a mystery because it is a house of many rooms. It can accommodate demons in thousands–”legions”. Demons have no rest until they find a body to leave on. God calls it a “temple”. One of the biggest Temple in Nigeria now, is Dunamis Church of pastor Paul Enenche with 100,000 capacity but your body is larger than that capacity. Do you know that your body is larger than the world largest auditorium???

Heaven and earth can’t contain God, yet as big as God is, He dwells in your body.

This body we treate anyhow is a double mysteries sir/ma, But you see, we fail to understand this mystery that’s why we treat our body anyhow…

A system that houses being more ancient than time. Is not an ordinary system. Now you know this. The question now is— how do you treate your God giving body?

1.Carelessly?
God gave you black eyes, black skin, muscular body, etc and you decided to surgically change it…
It’s an insult and a mockery on God’s integrity..
Take it or leave it.

And let me remind you, that anything that is not at it state of origin, if uttered attract rapid or natural consequences…Go to hospitals and see cases..

2.Sinfully?.
Sin can kill your God given body, sins like, Sexual sins(fornication, abortion, adultery,masturbation, lesbianism, homosexuality etc)drunkenness, smoking, bitterness, greediness, corruption,robbery etc avoid them all..

3.Recklessly?
Lack of sleep, lack of good hygiene, speed driving, malnutrition,lack of prayer and study life?..etc

We should always find a way to take care of the body because spirit do not stay long in weak or tortured bodies. Your spirit is the strength that powers your body but when the body is weak the spirit functions in your body looses its grip and departs. It’s a sin to treate your God given body anyhow. So many people died so early cause of reckless and lackadaisical life style.

If your body suffers any consequences as a result of your carelessness, even God and your soul will not be happy with what you did with your body!!!

Have you sinned against your body and you know it? Now your still alife you have opportunities to amend your ways.

SCRIPTURE READING

So they arrived at the other side of the lake, in the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus climbed out of the boat, a man possessed by an evil spirit came out from the tombs to meet him. This man lived in the burial caves and could no longer be restrained, even with a chain. Whenever he was put into chains and shackles—as he often was—he snapped the chains from his wrists and smashed the shackles. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Day and night he wandered among the burial caves and in the hills, howling and cutting himself with sharp stones. When Jesus was still some distance away, the man saw him, ran to meet him, and bowed low before him. With a shriek, he screamed, “Why are you interfering with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In the name of God, I beg you, don’t torture me!” For Jesus had already said to the spirit, “Come out of the man, you evil spirit.” Then Jesus demanded, “What is your name?” And he replied, “My name is Legion, because there are many of us inside this man.” Then the evil spirits begged him again and again not to send them to some distant place. There happened to be a large herd of pigs feeding on the hillside nearby. “Send us into those pigs,” the spirits begged. “Let us enter them.” So Jesus gave them permission. The evil spirits came out of the man and entered the pigs, and the entire herd of about 2,000 pigs plunged down the steep hillside into the lake and drowned in the water. The herdsmen fled to the nearby town and the surrounding countryside, spreading the news as they ran. People rushed out to see what had happened. A crowd soon gathered around Jesus, and they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons. He was sitting there fully clothed and perfectly sane, and they were all afraid.

Mark 5:1-15

WORD FOR TODAY

Many aren’t exercising authority given to them to dominate on earth. Even in the spirit you have been made a little lower than angels of light (Psalms 8:5).

1. First as a human, you are not ordinary in the spirit and in the physical. Secondly, you are more than extraordinary when you are in Christ.
If you have angels to minister to you, what are foul spirits that you cannot subdue in the spirit?

2. The mad man of Gadara could house a legion of demons and he only went insane. The same demons possessed A HERD of pigs and the pigs could not survive it. Hnmm…. this should tell you that our spiritual make up is very powerful.

3. Imagine, no chains could hold down one man possessed by unclean spirits. How much more power you’ll exhibit, being filled with the power of light that darkness cannot comprehend. No chains, yoke, fetter of the enemy can bring you down if you take your place in the spirit consciously.

4. The foul spirit knew who they were… Some of us cannot even identify as the power house that we are. Who are you in the spirit? When you are addressed by anyone in the spirit or in the physical you should have an ever ready answer to affirm who you are as a child of God.

Enforce your authority

Remember. You are a walking 1 Peter 2:9

But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9 NLT

There are so many affirmations to be registered in your spirit. I will outline a few shortly.

5. The foul spirits could identify the Spirit of the One who confronted them. They understood His power of dominance as the Son of God. They understand heirachy in the spirit realm. Do not be like the seven sons of Sceva in Acts chapter 19 who were assessed in the spirit and found lower because of darkness that was found in them. Be a woman of AUTHORITY, be a woman of LIGHT.

Luke 10:19
You have been given the power to trample upon serpents and scorpions and over EVERY power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means touch you because YOUR TEMPLE IS FLOODED WITH THE LIGHT OF JESUS. Since Christ is in you, the enemy has no option but to submit.

A group of Jews was traveling from town to town casting out evil spirits. They tried to use the name of the Lord Jesus in their incantation, saying, “I command you in the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, to come out!” Seven sons of Sceva, a leading priest, were doing this. But one time when they tried it, the evil spirit replied, “I know Jesus, and I know Paul, but who are you?” Then the man with the evil spirit leaped on them, overpowered them, and attacked them with such violence that they fled from the house, naked and battered.

Acts 19:13-16

It is a spiritual world we live in beloved. Take your place in dominion. It is your right as a child of God. Woman of God know thyself.

AFFIRMATIONS TO HAVE HANDY

God has given me authority over all the power of the enemy, and I will walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure me.
Luke 10:19 NLT

I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around.
Psalms 3:6 NKJV

I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are God’s works, And that my soul knows very well.
Psalms 139:14 NKJV

No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against me in judgment I shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and my righteousness is from the Lord.
Isaiah 54:17 NKJV

FIVE REASONS YOU SHOULD NEVER HURT A WOMAN

By Evangelist Henry Elochukwu

YOU NO DEY USE ME PLAY
  1. WOMEN ARE THE DOORS OF THE EARTH.

A door determines the entrance and the exits of a thing, Wether good or bad…

Sin entered the world through a Woman(Eve) and also left the world through A woman(Mary)..

Hurting a woman is like closing doors of generations unborn and generations to come…

I have gone for a family deliverance where a whole family were suffering from untimely death due to the atrocity of their grandfather who raped a virgin to death.. whom before she died placed a curse on him and his entire generations to come..Now the innocent children are suffering it…

2. WOMEN ARE PRECIOUS TOOLS IN THE HAND OF GOD.

The Bible calls them “weaker vessels” not because of their physical strength but because they are flexible tools of usage in the hand of God or Satan, Depending on whom they yield themselves to and could be very extreme in services or worship…

Have never seen a prayer that is as powerful as the prayer of A woman!..God delight so much in them and accepts their prayers faster.Becareful not to be a woman’s heart breaking prayer point…

This is why they easily fall under the anointing or get possessed easily by the devil..They are flexible to easily blend with any force that they yield themselves to..

This is also Why Angels appeared to Women a lot in the Bible…Infact the first Person Jesus appeared to when He resurrected from the grave was a Woman”Mary mandalene”….She became the first Evangelist in the New Testament!

3. THE BIBLE CALL’S THEM “HELPERS”

A Helper is someone who helps you stand in the midst of all weaknesses!!!..Women are physically &Spiritually stronger in the terms of Help in all ramifications!…

If a woman helps you to stand…You will stand without shaking but if she decides to bring you down..You are finished!!! Samson will tell you better!!

4. WOMEN ARE THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE ON EARTH.

Jesus is a seed of a Woman and at the mention of His name all seeds of men from Genesis to revelation shall bow down and worship Him(seed of a woman)

Anyone who hurts her is like a timed bomb waiting to explode without recoveries!!..

My grandmum once told me, If I want to go far in life I should never deliberately hurt a good Woman..

5. WOMEN ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH.

A world without them, is like a forest without trees…

A world with them is like A river without water…

The Earth without them…Is like a world without people!!!

Let’s value and care for all our good Women and stop hurting and instilling fear of the unknown!

Let’s treasure them and not torture them!..

SAY NO TO RAPE!!!

SAY NO TO ABUSE!!

SAY NO TO HOME VIOLENCE

Justice shall prevail for UWA and all those who died of rape, sexual abuse and home violence!!

It is well

THE MYSTERY OF– ‘IT IS WRITTEN’

‘Way Maker’ by Sinach

I am trusting God that you are well in mind, soul and body as I bring to you another word laid in my spirit today. Halleluyah!

GUARD YOUR SALVATION AND VIRTUES JEALOUSLY

God wants us to understand a truth, that He so loved the world(without reason), that he gave his only son to die for us. GOD LOVES EVERY HUMAN HE CREATED UNCONDITIONALLY. There you have it, the summary of my message to you!

Why is He telling us this today? He wants us to know that letting our guards down as children of God, is at our own risks. He isn’t going to hate on a person who brought you to a place of pain, shame and reproach because you let your guard down to be attacked. God hates sin, he doesn’t hate man. Once the mercy of God finds a soul who genuinely repents of their sin, they become God’s own and a candidate for heaven instantly. If you are not careful, having a heart of vengeance because you were hurt by any of them prior to their being saved, will land you in hell if death kisses you unprepared.

Put on the whole armor of God for your own safety. Heaven’s race is personal. Guard your salvation and virtues jealously beloved. The one who broke your heart, committed murder, molested you etc is running his or her personal race. Ensure you aren’t a victim of attacks. They may find heaven before you, God have mercy. Be sober, be vigilant so you aren’t devoured or messed up by the enemy. It is easier to prevent happenings than to pray for restoration.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—

Ephesians 6:10-18

HOW DO WE FIGHT VICTORIOUS?

It is very important that we study the word of God always. Meditate on the word so we can use this to rebuke the adversary.

Without the word which is the sword of the Spirit, we are powerless. Never forget this for a second.

Our Christ Jesus, resisted the devil thrice with the written word. You just have to arm yourself with the word of God if not you’ll end up a mince meat for the devil.

How much of the word do you take in warrior? How regular do you take in the word?

It is a spiritual life we have and the mystery is made plain before our eyes through the word of God in Matthew 4. If the Son of God had to employ the word as a weapon, then you cannot survive a face-off with the enemy without the word.

IT IS WRITTEN is your weapon of warfare, use it effectively.

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ” Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: ‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, ‘In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ” Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ” Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ” Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.

Matthew 4:1-11

THE ROCK THAT’S HIGHER THAN I

Lion of Judah by Lebo Sekgobela

From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Psalms 61:2

Have you like the Psalmist been relegated to the ends of the earth by the enemy of your purpose and destiny? Are you in a position of utter ruin, a design of the enemy unto perdition? Or you are in a place of perpetual pain. A place of deep hurt that locks you out, a place of regret, wishing you had done things differently given the despair you experience?

That point where you feel no one born of man can reach in to save you, like Ishmael the son of Hagar. The very same situation Samson, son of Manoah found himself where the very light of his life had been quenched through the searing iron of disobedience, on the laps of lust. At a time; Daniel, Shedrach, Meshach and Abednigo buried their head in the face of death, thinking the end has come.

Hagar and Ishmael

Perhaps you are overwhelmed with pain pangs of addiction, fighting a seeming lost battle with every drug dose you take even when you swore the previous would be your last. Withdrawn from your very self, you have become the reflection of a shadow of what is programmed for your once vibrant spirit… the shackles of death.

Rejected and scorned like Tamar, abused and subdued…. oh Dinah, no one really cared how you cascaded down the staircase of distraught, not given a chance to decide what happens in your life. You just flowed, floating in a life of confinement dictated by the ones who should love you.

Aha! the pain of an aggrieved wife who seek daily for the comfort of a man she tied her soul to, a man who never graced her love with kindness but broke her heart bit by bit and into irredeemable pieces with his adulterous spirit and abuse.

What ends of the earth have you found yourself today? God’s hands is not shortened that he cannot reach you when you are overwhelmed with grief. Cry out like the little warrior Ishmael. There is a point where you just must give up on trying keep your head afloat by your own power. Haven’t you realised that you can’t by your own strength deliver yourself? God is waiting for you to trust in Him completely for your deliverance. For it is not by power nor by might but by the Spirit of the living God.

Cry out woman of God! Let the Lord glory in your weakness. You have done this all on your own and it time for the Rock that is Higher than you to take over. If he could hear the blood of Abel cry out for vengeance, he will surely hear you even now.

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

2Corinthians 12:9

Let the fourth man arise in the fire for you, cry out! Dinah, the Lord sees your pain, Tamar He feels your heartbreak and Samson no more will you mill the grains of the enemy, Your God will arise to position you on that Rock that is Higher than you.

“Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

Daniel 3:25
The fourth man in the fire

You will begin to feel love again. You will live again. The covenant of the blood of Jesus will override the potency of addiction. Light is returning to you.

Abba will hear your cry when you call from the depths in groaning like Hannah. You will safely rest in Jesus, the Rock higher than you where no demon can lay a finger on you again .

Make this your prayer today,

FATHER, LEAD ME TO THE ROCK THAT IS HIGHER THAN I. JESUS SON OF THE LIVING GOD, COME THROUGH FOR ME.

HEAVEN’S DEW REFRESHING

Yes, it is yet another amazing day …praise God! My day started beautifully, with me feeling refreshed. It all began with a spirit lifting worship from the song ‘Show Us Thy Glory’, by one of my spirit sisters…oh yes I call Ma’m Augustina Addison my spirit sister because of the deep connection I felt through her worship. She did a soul shaking rendition of this song. Praying for more oil over her life in the mighty name of Jesus. I am yet to come down even as I type, from the awesome clouds of worship.

A lot is going on with the COVID19 situation, that families, businesses and economies are beginning to feel the down side of it. Some except by mercy, may not recover fully from the downturn because they weren’t prepared for it. People more than ever are trusting God to be their healer, protector and provider. God is these to us and much more. While I pondered on the situation, asking God for a way out for his people, a word and this song was laid in my spirit.

Show us thy glory oh Lord
Show us thy glory oh Lord
Let the dew of heaven bring us a refreshing show us your glory once more.

We are crying day and night asking God to show his face. We need him now! I was led to the following scriptures to remind me that God never fails. He already made provision for us. Praise God!

We have a heavenly release of the dew of heaven and every other blessings designed for those who are called by the name of the Lord. The dew of heaven is the refreshing we need this season.

…..and the heavens shall give their dew Halleluyah. The dew of heaven truly is refreshing. The earth’s thirst is quenched everyday by this dew and our spirits are freshed by heaven’s dew.

God has giving to us the blessing of the dew and it is only right that we get refreshed by it. You wonder why despite all the promises and blessings of God, you still feel the thirst, like you are in the desert. The Lord sends a word today and here it is…. this is wisdom to have the dew of heaven bring you a refreshing in this season as you travail in prayer.

By his divine revelation he broke open the hidden fountains of the deep, bringing secret springs to the surface as the mist of the night dripped down from heaven.

Proverbs 3:20 TPT

Aha! You need divine revelation for the release of heaven’s dew.

Let us ask God today for that divine revelation, the knowledge or ideas that will position us to receive heaven’s dew so we are refreshed today

I pray for you,

Heavenly Father by your love and mercy, reveal your glory to your own today, give them all they need in wisdom and understanding as we pray in Jesus mighty name, Amen

Have a heavenly time of refreshing beloved.

PROPHETIC WITCHCRAFT (1)

BY PASTOR BUNMI ONILUDE (DEBORAH GENERATION, MANDATE DRIVEN)

Pastor Bunmi Onilude

Are You A Mother Or A Witch?
Mystery Of The Womb
Where Was The Mother Of Esau?

29 – And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint: —

22 – And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD. — Rebecca went to ask…..she went to find out the reason for the struggle in her womb!

Genesis 25:29, 25:22

Many women go up and down to make enquiry about the destinies, the stars and the glory of their children! The purpose of going into prayer houses and mountains is just to know about prophetic destinies of their children so that they can know who to support. Some want to know so they can know which of their children will be strong financially so they can know who will favour them! This is quickest way of signing in into prophetic witchcraft and spiritism

And the LORD said unto her, two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger. —

Genesis 25:23

Rebecca discovered that founders of two nations were in her womb, the separation of two people began in her body! One people shall be stronger than the other, and the elder shall serve the younger

When you have access to information what do you do? When Rebecca had access to know that two founder of nations were struggling in her womb, and that she was permitted to be mother of nations; what did she do?

Motherhood is a rare privilege that we all don’t qualify for. What of to have premonition of being mother of two different nations.

God gives seed not fruit. Jacob was a nation seed and Esau was another nation seed both planted in the womb of one woman. What we receive from God are seed not fruits. What we do with the seed determines the type of fruit we eat in our night season

Prophecy is foreknowledge – a gaze into the future, a knowing of tomorrow! A mental picture and image of what will be in the future!

Do you know that war broke out from the womb of Rebekah against Esau in support of Jacob from that day?

Why will you name your child Jacob? Words are spirit. Each time mother speaks, the word is empowered to accomplish a designed purpose! She decided to work out the fulfilment of the detail of the enquiry! She designed program and app to supplant the elder son, she resolved to support the younger brother to subjugate his elder brother
Nothing function on it own. Everything thrives on certain back up! So Jacob had the backing of her mother to deceive, supplant and manipulate Esau!

While in the womb, the wall of her womb was against the prosperity of Esau, while the two struggles for survival, the witch mother spirit says Jacob shall supplant the leadership inheritance belonging to Esau. Growing up, she promised her support daily to Jacob. “I am here to make it work”, so on the naming ceremony day, a demon spirit was released to empower Jacob to carry out that mandate of supplanting his elder brother’s inheritance!

What is the correlation between lunch and birthright! Where is Jacob going to? Why will Esau be denied food at home? Where is Rebekah in all this drama? Who was the brain behind the supplanting plot?

Oooh I am pained for Esau because the womb that bore him was against him. The breast that gave him suck agreed to fight against his destiny!

What was the end of Rebecca?

LET ALL YOUR WAYS BE ESTABLISHED IN RIGHTEOUSNESS

ANCHOR SCRIPTURE

Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.

Proverbs 4:26-27

God is calling on us today to establish ALL our ways unto righteousness.

He says further in same proverbs 4:18 that the paths of the righteous are like a shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto a perfect day.

This is an assurance that those whose path are just, ultimately fulfil God’s purpose for their lives.

HOW DO WE ESTABLISH OUR WAYS IN RIGHTEOUSNESS

  1. JUSTIFIED BY FAITH….Believe in God supported by works

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 5:1

Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”

Hebrews 10:38

There is no pleasing God without having faith as a believer. To walk in a path of righteousness, you must believe in God through Christ and exercise your faith by works.

Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?

James 2:21-22

God himself testified that Abraham was righteous because of his faith. He showed that he trusted God to keep his promise towards him and his generations unborn, even when God demanded his heir in sacrifice. Abraham did not withold from God the only hope he had. He trusted God beyond human wisdom. Today, God is calling you to walk in this kind of faith.

And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God.

James 2:23

2. Keeping God’s Statutes

For I have kept the ways of the Lord , And have not wickedly departed from my God. For all His judgments were before me, And I did not put away His statutes from me. I was also blameless before Him, And I kept myself from my iniquity.

Psalms 18:21-23

It is easier now in this dispensation of grace to have the holy Spirit guide you into all truths, to follow God’s statutes without much stress as those sold out to Christ. Don’t bother about keeping the letter of old commandment, you cannot fulfil every one of them. God is asking you to trust completely in the holy Spirit to guide you. His words has he imprinted in your heart, obey every instruction as the Spirit leads you.

David was called JUST, save for the case of Uriah the Gittite. He eventually reconciled with God and God attested to His righteousness because he did what was always right by God. Are you obeying the instructions of God?

because David did what was right in the eyes of the Lord , and had not turned aside from anything that He commanded him all the days of his life, except in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.

1Kings 15:5

3. Bringing to God excellent sacrifice

By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks.

Hebrews 11:4

Abel gave a the best of his harvest. God is calling to us today to not only give the best of our substance but the best of our service also.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

Romans 12:1

Offer the best of you in showcasing the glory of God as a believer. Let your life bring observers to the knowledge of God through Christ that you preach, not just in word but also in works.

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

2Corinthians 2:14

EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE WHOSE PATHS WERE ESTABLISHED IN RIGHTEOUSNESS

1. Abraham
2. Noah

These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

Genesis 6:9

And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. 

Genesis 7:1


3. Lot
4. Job.
5. David
6. Enoch
7. John the baptist

REWARD OF ESTABLISHING YOUR PATH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS

1. God reveals himself/plans to the upright.

When you walk in a just path, you are no offender of God but a friend. Your day to day walk with God will bring you to a place of intimacy where God through His Spirit will reveal all you need to know about you and others.

For the perverse person is an abomination to the Lord , But His secret counsel is with the upright.

Proverbs 3:32

God never hid anything from his faithful friend Abraham and will not hide anything from you when you walk faithfully in righteousness with him.

And the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing,

Genesis 18:17

2. The integrity of the Just saves him and blesses his children after him

The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.

Proverbs 20:7

You must have heard that a good name is better than silver or gold. One’s works precedes them and will deliver them if good, from trouble in time of obscurity or wrong allegations.

The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.

Proverbs 11:3
  1. Unprecedented blessings from God

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

1Corinthians 2:9

In conclusion, remember the wages of sin is death. One who derails from the paths of righteousness is an enemy of God. Do not walk in darkness. The path of the righteous shines like light. You will not stumble in Jesus mighty name. Amen and amen.

The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know what makes them stumble.

Proverbs 4:19

OBEDIENCE TO GOD– A BEAUTIFUL OFFERING

NEW WINE (Hillsong)

So yesterday on my blog post, I highlighted that one of the steps in worshipping God in truth, is following him in total obedience. I summed it up by admonishing us not to be like King Saul who would rather please men and himself than obey the instruction of God.

God hates disobedience and as such, when you desire to come into his presence, you must come with a heart that is willing to obey Him completely.

There is no true worship without obedience. Keeping God’s instructions on righteousness and justice is acceptable unto God. It is a sweet smelling savor and humble sacrifice.

I thought to reiterate on this when I saw this as the verse of today on the Bible app. The Spirit of God is one. All God ever requires from us is a life of righteousness.

To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.

Proverbs 21:3

TODAY, GOD IS ASKING YOU TO WORSHIP HIM IN OBEDIENCE

Is there any way you have disobeyed God’s instructions? Have you been doing things in your own way like Saul when you hear expressly, God instructing you to do another?

Bring on a new sacrifice today– a broken and contrite spirit, God will never reject. I pray the Holyspirit leads you to reconciliation with the father through Christ as you ask God for mercy in Jesus name.

God loves you!

WORSHIP– A SWEET SMELLING AROMA

ADONAI by Elijah Oyelade
(Lyrics at bottom of post)

Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvelous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifices. And live in holiness, experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship.

Romans 12:1 (TPT)

WHAT IS WORSHIP?

You’ve probably often wondered what worship truly is right? Oxford dictionary defines worship as a feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity. Brilliant definition isn’t it? Let’s take a walk through the word in Romans 12:1, so we can understand what it says in addition to the above definition, on how to worship

HOW TO WORSHIP

SURRENDER YOURSELF

This without inhibition is the first step in the art of worship. Total surrender of your being- your spirit, soul and body. Reserve nothing for yourself or any other. Hold nothing back. You can’t be committed to worship and have weights pulling you down and away from your altar. Drop the weight at the foot of Jesus and set yourself loose.

BE GOD’S SACRED TEMPLE

Be set apart for God alone. You must stand holy before His throne. There should be no other allegiance but to God. You can’t serve two masters. You must be God’s alone.

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17

For us to worship we must plead the blood to stand spotless before His throne. Our God is holy and those who worship must worship in spirit and in truth.

BE THE LIVING SACRIFICE

when I hears the word ‘SACRIFICE’, the first picture that comes to mind is an illustration from the childhood– my book of bible stories that’s been etched in my spirit. The Israelites often had animals slaughtered on an altar with the smoke from its burning rising up to heaven. This smoke, the word made us understand, when accepted is a pleasing aroma, a sweet smelling savor. Praise God for Jesus, the lamb that was slain once and for all, offered unto God as a sweet fragrance and same Jesus now in us has transformed us into a living and walking sacrifice, consistently diffusing the fragrance of the knowledge of God.

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?

2 Corinthians 2:14-16

God wants us to diffuse the knowledge of God always. It an expression of worship. We need to have Jesus in our lives for us to be a walking incense, a living sacrifice.

LIVE IN HOLINESS

There is no doubt, God cannot behold iniquity. If you want to enter his presence in worship or connect to him as a living sacrifice, you must live a life of holiness. Worship ushers us into God presence when we lead holy lives. It is very possible with the help of the Holyspirit to live holy for God. There is no worship without holiness.

Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:

Hebrews 12:14

EXPERIENCE GOD’S HEART DELIGHT

Be like King David, a man after God’s heart. Seek to please the Lord in everything. Observe to do his bid at all time. Do not be like King Saul who sought to serve God the way he pleased and not in obedience.

Samuel said,
“Has the Lord as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
As in obeying the voice of the Lord?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
And to heed than the fat of rams.

1 Samuel 15:22

Finally, use your all in worship. Your voice, your intellect every power he has gifted you with. Sing graciously to the king always. He is ADONAI
