What You Need to Know About Giving Offering



Deuteronomy 26:1, … “when you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you (when you have become successful in your business, when you get that job, contract you desired, and when you have received those things you have been praying about)…
You are expected, required to give some offerings from your income after all your fasting, breakthrough prayers, etc, have been answered by God. You have been able to achieve all those things you were praying about, now you are expected to give some of the first produce from each crop you harvest (a part of your income) and bring to a designated place of worship (your church)- the place the Lord your God chooses for his name to be honored.

What Happens to Those Who Rejects The Message?




As a preacher or a man of God you might have rejected severally or sometimes by the people you preach to or give the prophecies of God to! No doubt some people deliberately refuse the word of God especially when the word is taught in the purest form, from the bible, most people rejects it, they prefer the diluted messages of prosperity preached by so many men of God.

Yes! Some will refuse to listen to you because you are not a popular man of God, or because you are not a “prosperity-preaching” pastor, ignoring your true message of repentance and the kingdom of God.

People mock preachers and call them all sorts of names.

See The Real Men of God From Sierra Leone


And then He showed me an anointed man of God, He said, this is my son:

Francis A.M Mambu (Faith Healing Bible Church): God showed me how this man is serving Him in truth and in spirit. God says he is not compromising His word for anything. “He is not preaching for his self-interest, he is telling the people the hard truth of my word, the persecution the man is going through for God; tell him to stand firm, anyone who fights against you, fights against me”.

He said, “Go out and preach my word, not only in your church, I’m with you, I will make your enemies your footstool”.

“Tell him, I have released more grace on him, it is well with you my son”

Repentance

Nehemiah was a great prophet of God in the Bible’s Old Testament. He reigned as a prophet during the time that the Israelites had just returned from slavery back to Judah, they just left a slavery of years in a foreign land because of their sins.

But even when they returned to Judah, they were not making progress, they were stagnant, because the Lord God was angry with them because of their sins.

And so Nehemiah’s brother, Hanani and some other men visited Nehemiah where he lived in Susa.

You Will only be Forgiven when You have Truly Repented and Seek Forgiveness (Ezra 9)

This chapter is similar to what is obtainable today. We have continually disobeyed God and his commandments, we have sinned; sins of fornication, adultery, lying, cheating, anger and others, both those committed knowingly and the ones done by mistake. 


Also See: What is True Repentance?


During the days of Ezra, the prophet narrates the sins of Israel, how they abandoned God’s commandments, especially on instructions giving about intermarriage with tribes that practices idolatry and other sins they have been warned to desist from.

Real Life Testimonies from Pastor E.A Adeboye



Some testimonies shared by Pastor Adeboye, during some sermon. Read and Pass on, then meditate and wait for God's abounding blessings. God is powerful. He will bless you all!

A Dumb Child Speaks 

A woman brought her child. That child will probably be between 9 and 10. And said this child had never spoken before please pray for this child. (GO) I laid my hand on this child and I said, In the Name of Jesus and the child said 'Amen!' I have not prayed yet! I just said: In the Name of Jesus! And the child that had never spoken before said 'Amen! I nearly jumped out of the window. The mother was on the floor rolling! That kind of miracle that will make you roll on the ground for joy God will

Why Pray!



Prayer is one of the major ways you use to achieve your goals. Prayer is like using the least efforts to achieve the best results.

Prayer is strategic! It is a method, plan sometimes to achieving big results, leveraging on God.Zacheaus was a strategic user of prayer in the Bible (Luke 19:1-5). Zacheaus was a strategic thinker.

Your investment in thinking, your investment in strategy, your investment in planning, eventually pays off. Prayer has the capacity to give you an advantage over others.

Prayer is God's plan

Don't Trust Humans, They are Fragile as Egg. What good are they?



“Don’t put your trust in mere humans. They are as frail as breath. What good are they?” Isaiah 2:22

Many of us put our trusts in our friends, our relatives, siblings and even spouse; we have been mistakenly deceived by our minds to believe that these people are our source of finance, happiness and well-being. I tell you the truth, none of these people in our lives can give us a perfect condition that we would have loved to be.

This is why the Bible is saying, “don’t put your trust in mere humans”… no matter how much you trust them, they can fail too, they are humans, you can not totally live your life on them, you cannot put all your hope in them, you cannot make them your God.

HELP! My Mouth Has Ruined Me (True Life Confession)



My name is Ikechukwu Silvanus; I will be 39 years old in January. About 20 years ago I committed a great blunder which has been affecting my life up till now. I am currently a jobless man, with no single penny and almost living a useless life all because of the word of my mouth.

I lived with my father and my cousin, Emeka. My mother had left my dad for several years and so I lived alone with Emeka and my dad. My dad was a rich business man until he died two years ago.

About 20 years ago day my dad kept N500,000 in the house and I stole N50,000 from it. My dad later discovered when he returned home that night that N50,000 was missing from the amount he kept. He called both Emeka and me, Emeka said he knew nothing about the missing money, when my dad asked me about the money, I also denied knowing anything about the missing money. I didn’t stop there but went ahead to place curses on myself. In my words I said to my dad, “I didn’t take the missing money, if I am the one who took the money, it should not be well with me and anything I desire in life should not come to me”

More Pastors will Spring Up




I have heard lots of people discussing and complaining about the increase in the number of pastors in the world today. Maybe I have joined in such conversations in the past too.

But after studying this portion of the bible I discovered that many more pastors will spring up because there’s still so much work to be done before the coming of the groom.

Can a Pastor Accept Gifts?




Can a preacher, a man of God, pastor accept gifts, food or money when out to preach? Yes! Can a man of God accept private jet? Yes!

Matthew 10: 9-10, “Don’t take any money in your money belts- no gold, silver, or even copper coins. Don’t carry a traveler’s bag with a change of clothes and sandals or even a walking stick. Don’t hesitate to accept hospitality, because those who work deserve to be fed”

As at the time Jesus gave his disciples this instruction there aren’t cars or jets then, maybe Jesus might have asked them not also travel with their private cars too. Can you imagine, Jesus even told them not to go with a change of cloth, on a trip that could take weeks or months!

Women! See Why You Should Stop Using False Hair




It all started on the 14th of February; I was in the funeral of my late friend, we were both in sin together before he died, though we not in relationship but we smoked together, joked together and clubbed together.

During the funeral which took place on the 13th of February, I started hearing a strange voice telling me that I was the next to die. I didn’t understand this, because I had never heard that kind of voice all my life until that day.


My heart was racing fast, I was tormented and so I told my sister, Finda that I was going outside the church building, and so I went and stayed inside the compound of the church.


Your Faith will Make it Happen For You



Faith is required for you to have your healing and breakthrough in any aspects of your life. You can do all things through God when you have faith that He can help you do it.

What you can do with your faith is limitless; with faith you can receive miraculous healing of cancer or even HIV, with faith that missing child can return home unhurt. With faith you have the resources to make wealth.

Why You SHould Always Be Encouraged!



When you have faith, you have courage to do the things you want to do. I noticed Jesus used the phrase “Be encouraged” often when he wants to heal people. In Matthew 9:2, he told the paralyzed man, “Be encouraged” and in Matthew 9: 22, he said to the woman with the issue of blood, “Be encouraged”

What is courage? Longman defines courage as, “the quality of being brave when you are in danger, in pain, in a difficult situation etc.

When you are down and you have nothing to look onto; have faith in God, His word says if He could provide for birds that have no house, that doesn’t farm nor harvest, how much more would He provide for you who He has made in His own image.

Don’t Despise Anyone!




Discrimination is greatly detested by God Almighty and I think most of the time it is the religious people who discriminates more than those who do not believe in God at all.

Most religious crisis across the world and even tribal clashes are as a result of discrimination against one another. However those most guilty of discrimination are religious people, particularly the big religions we have.

The mistake most religious people make is this; they forget that people are related one way or the other, either through your mother’s family, or through a relative of your wife, you will be related to the other religion somehow as long as you are a resident of this planet earth.

You are Healed in Jesus Name


To receive healing in any area of your life; family, health, finance and relationship that had gone bad, you need the healing of Christ. Healing from God requires that you are cleansed from all forms of iniquities. Once you receive forgiveness of sin from God, and you have faith in God for your breakthrough, then you are a candidate for God’s miracle.

In Matthew 9:2 “Some people brought to him a paralyzed man on a mat. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “Be encouraged, my child! Your sins are forgiven.”

Jesus probably knew that the paralyzed man was sick because of his sins; sin causes sickness, diseases and stagnation.

A Real Man of God Don't Need to Slap or Flog a Demon-Possessed Person to Deliver Them!




In a Yoruba movie I saw yesterday some white-garment church members while trying to deliver an assumed demon-possessed girl, flogged the girl continuously for hours without casting anything out. Its so funny how people would assume that beating will deliver someone of demons!

Many White-garment churches and non- white garment churches and even some great men of God use physical force on members to deliver them from demons or witchcraft. It is a know practice among many spiritual outlets, particularly in Africa.

You remember the story of a Reverend in Nigeria that used fire to burn his members as punishment to deliver them from adultery? Of recent there was a serious controversy about a man of God who slapped a girl in the church for allegedly being a witch!

You Need Faith to Overcome




Anyone can find themselves in an unpleasant situation. A temporary set-back in business or in career and even health. I say temporary because everyone is expected to overcome all unpleasant situations in their life.

Some preachers think a Christian is not supposed to be ill, or even have a little financial problem or small set-back in business. Common! Anyone can be attacked but everyone who is attacked is expected to come out safely. It takes faith for you to come out of crisis without bruises.

In the Book of Matthew 8: 23-27 Jesus having preached all day was tired and while in the boat returning home with his disciples fell asleep.

“Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” Matthew 8: 24-25

Being tired here can connote a situation where you have worked so hard and not yielding results become tired. When tired, you are weak and unable to work, in such situations when problems comes you may not have the capacity to handle it because you are already tired.

Hard Work and Focus are the Prerequisites to Success




Before you can achieve success in any field of endeavor in life, you must be hardworking and have a total commitment to your goals and dreams.

For you to achieve greatness, you must be committed to, and focused on your goals and dreams, be it a career, talent or business.

I am not just saying this because I don’t want you to believe the Prosperity Preachers; no I am telling you this so that when a prosperity preacher tells you that you will become rich by December and you have faith that it will happen yet you don’t have anything you are doing right now, then you’d better watch out!

What is Wrong in Giving Gifts to Men of God?




Giving gifts like cars, money or anything good even houses to men of God is not bad. What is bad is for a man of God put over the resources of a church or an organization to be dipping hands into the resources for his personal use.

I have heard many people criticize pastors for taking gifts, but I don’t see anything wrong in that. A man of God who prophecies over your life and you receive favor and good things from God and men deserves to be given gifts by you. The amount of what you give to your pastor depends on how much you also have and can afford to give out!

All You Need For It to Happen, is to Believe! (Matthew 8:5-13)





In the book of Matthew 8 from verse 5 to 13 we read the story of a Roman officer whose servant was paralyzed and needed Jesus to come and heal the servant.

The Roman officer had already created one of the most important atmosphere for the healing to take place, he has already believed.

The Roman officer then took his second step for the healing to take place, he approached Jesus (approaching Jesus is "seeking", or "knocking", in Matthew 7:7-8, Jesus said, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened".) and the man said to Jesus, “Lord, my young servant lies in bed, paralyzed and in terrible pain.

Jesus said, ‘I will come and heal him’. But the officer said, ‘Lord, I am not worthy to have you come into my home- just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed” Matthew 8:6-8

The Most Influential Man That Ever Lived




In so many ways he was very popular, influential and a good speaker. In those days when there was no means of using public address system, he spoke to 5,000 people who sat outside, no canopies, no tent, just in the open field, and they sat, listening to him for hours, without food. Who else can be this popular, even in this current world, that things are much easier!

If you have read about prophets in the Old Testament before Jesus Christ, you will notice that as strong as they were in prophesies, prayers and even miracles, they were not strong teachers like Jesus. Many preachers sprang up after the death of Jesus almost all of them using the pattern and life of Jesus to teach people up to our present time.

That means, his influence is still on, up to this current generation. Isn't that very awesome! He lived thousands of years ago, don't forget.

There were preachers in the Old Testament more than the few most of us know, they were very influential and popular too, but didn't have much direct followers like Jesus had, is influence is still being used by most Christians in the world today.

Righteous Shall Flourish (Final Part)





So God began to teach me- He said- bless your people, tell them they are bless, so when you shake my hand in the morning- I’m bless, in the evening- I’m blessed, in the night- I’m blessed.

Everywhere I go- I am blessed- halleluiah!

I’m blessed, I’m well, I’m on top, I’m not down, I’m success, I’m not failure, the Lord is on my side. Halleluiah!

The righteous shall flourish, your skin have nothing to do with your prosperity. Your city has nothing to do with your prosperity, where God is, there’s life.

Dangers of Sleeping With Another Man’s Wife



City Pastor


Sleeping with another man’s wife knowingly or unknowingly attracts some curses or punishments.

Please read the whole of Genesis 20 to get a clear picture of this.

Abraham was in Gerar as a foreigner and he introduced his wife to people as his sister. This could be as a result of fear of the people attacking and killing him or for financial benefits.

The King, Abimelech took interest in Sarah, Abraham’s wife and sent for her to be brought to him.

Mind you, Abimelech did not know that Sarah was Abraham’s wife, he thought she was his sister.

Here is the Punishment he would have had if he had slept with Sarah

Righteous Shall Flourish (III)




 
...and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.

We serve a full God. I’m a child of the God of fullness, full in health, full in job, full in prosperity, full in abundance, full of miracle, full of surprises, full in whatever I lay my hands to do. That God may fill your heart with the fullness of God.

So I took my name out of the list of those who have nothing. First of all I understood for the first time 17 years ago when I read in the bible that Christ may dwell in my heart and not poverty to dwell in my heart.

Righteous Shall Flourish (II)



By Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa
Transcribed By Charles Oluyori

Take curse out of your head- remove the curse out of your head. Stop liking only bad things. They don’t believe that they deserve good things! They are poverty-oriented! They have been taught that the poorer they are, the nearer they are to God, whereas, poverty is a disgrace to God.

How can your heavenly Father have everything and you have nothing? How can your God be the Alfa and Omega and you are nothing? How can your God say, the silver are mine and the gold are mine and thousands cattle on the hilltop and the hill where the cattle are standing belong to my God; and you have nothing on earth- it’s a trick of the devil for you to think “the poorer you are the holier you will become” that’s not true.

Revelation 3:8 says, “Behold I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it”

Before you appoint him a king (Leader); he must have these qualities



Before you can be qualified to be appointed as a king or a leader, you  must be humble, not displaying too much wealth and must not marry many wives.That is the first quality people must see in you before even considering you as a leader or a king!

Read the rest below as gotten from the Holy Bible…

1- “The king must not build up a large stable of horses for himself (The king must not have a large entourage, cars, escorts for himself” Deuteronomy 17:16

The Righteous Shall Flourish- Bishop Idahosa



Transcribed By Charles Oluyori

This God that I have come to know now can make all things possible. In Luke 1:45 the bible says, “There shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord”

There shall be performance to your dreams, to your expectation. God says if you believe it, there’s going to be a performance.

And I asked myself, with who are all things possible? Who will perform my dreams? Who will bring to pass my heart desires? Who will give me the grace to realize my dreams? - God!

Obedience




“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the flood waters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and ignores it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash” Matthew 7:24-27

This part of Matthew 7 is like a summary of all that Jesus taught His followers, He taught them how to live a good life, how to make money and be rich, He taught them how they can live without sickness and diseases and how to gain eternity.

All through the book of Matthew 7 Jesus was explaining to people what it takes to live in this sinful world, how to overcome temptations, how to live above sin and how to please our heavenly Father.

Law Breakers will not go to Heaven




“Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in Your name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws” Matthew 7:21-23

If you are disobedient to God, you break His commandments you will not enter into the kingdom of God.

It doesn’t matter how much speaking in tongues you can do, it doesn’t matter whether you are a pastor, a minister or the director of music in your church. As long as you don’t obey and keep God’s commandments you will not enter into the kingdom of God.
