Topic: With Me Wherever I Am-The Lord is with me

Text: You need not fight in this battle; station yourselves, stand and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out to face them, for the Lord is with you. 2Chro. 20:17

 

This was a great mercy for Jehoshaphat, for a great multitude had come out against him; and it will be a great mercy for me, for I have great need, and I have no might or wisdom. Just imagine the emotional roller coastal of corona virus. Imagine our children, grand children in schools. Imagine your spouse at work! Imagine how you react if anybody sneezes around you! If the Lord be with me, any virus will meet with God first. If the Lord be with me, it matters little who may desert me. If the Lord be with me, I shall conquer in the battle of life, and the greater my trials the more glorious will be my victory. How can I be sure that the Lord is with me?

 

For certain He is with me if I am with Him. If I trust in His faithfulness, believe His words, and obey His commands, He is assuredly with me. If I am on Satan's side, God is against me and cannot be otherwise; but if I live to honor God, I may be sure that He will honor me. "Those who honor me , I will honor"

Please think soberly about the following statements as stated by Spurgeon: I am quite sure that God is with me if Jesus is my sole and only Savior. If I have placed my soul in the hands of God's only-begotten Son, then I may be sure that the Father will put forth all His power to preserve me, that His Son may not be dishonored.

 

Oh, for faith to take hold upon the short but sweet text for today! O Lord, fulfill this word to your servant! Be with me in the house, in the street, in the field, in the shop, in company, at work, in school, and even alone. Be Thou also with all Thy people. In Jesus name! Amen! 

Be safe, be strong, be steadfast, and look up for our redemption is near.

Topic: In Covenant Relationship-First thing First!

Text: But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (Matthew 6:33)

 

I MUST put first things first. The radical fault in much of my living is want of proportion. I think more of pretty window curtains than of fresh air, more of “nice” wallpaper than of the moving pageant of the skies. I magnify the immediate desire and minimize the ultimate goal. And so “things do not come right!” How can they when the apportionment is so perverse, when everything is topsy-turvy? If I want things to be firm and durable I must revere the Divine order, and must put first things first. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.” 

 

And, therefore, I must seek holiness before success. I am to esteem holiness with apparent failure as infinitely better than success with stain and shame.

I must seek character before reputation. The applause of the world must be as nothing compared with the approbation of God. The favoring “voice from heaven” must be sweeter to my ears than the noisy cheers of the crowd. And I must seek righteousness before quietness. The way of disturbance is sometimes the way to peace. I must not be so concerned for a quiet life as for a life that is “right with God.” )(Henry Jowett)

Topic: Shout of Praise

Text: And when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him (Joshua 6:5).

 

Tomorrow begins our PRAISE THROUGH SUNDAY: What a better time to praise God! Praise song precedes overwhelming victory for saints of old. Shout of praise brought down the impregnable wall of Jericho. This pandemic is brought down in Jesus Name. Let the shout of praise begins. H. W. Smith writes: The shout of steadfast faith is in direct contrast to the moans of wavering faith, and to the wails of discouraged hearts. Among the many "secrets of the Lord," I do not know of any that is more valuable than the secret of this shout of faith. The Lord said to Joshua, "See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour." He had not said, "I will give," but "I have given." It belonged to them already; and now they were called to take possession of it. But the great question was, How? It looked impossible, but the Lord declared His plan.

 

Now, no one can suppose for a moment that this shout caused the walls to fall. And yet the secret of their victory lay in just this shout, for it was the shout of a faith which dared, on the authority of God's Word alone, to claim a promised victory, while as yet there were no signs of this victory being accomplished. And according to their faith God did unto them; so that, when they shouted, He made the walls to fall." H. Smith

 

God had declared that He had given them the city, and faith reckoned this to be true. And long centuries afterwards the Holy Ghost recorded this triumph of faith in Hebrews: "By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days." Let the shout of praise begins, God is with us and corona virus and other injurious viruses shall not have dominion over us.

 

Faith can never reach its consummation,

Till the victor's thankful song we raise:

In the glorious city of salvation,

God has told us all the gates are praise.

Topic: Solace, Security, Satisfaction

Text: Although my house be not so with God; yet he hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure: for this is all my salvation, and all my desire, although he make it not to grow. (2 Samuel 23:5

 

This is not so much one promise as an accumulation of promises—a box of pearls. the covenant is the ark which contains all things. The text above are the last words of David, but they may be mine today. Here is a sigh: things are not with me and mine as I could wish; there are trials, cares, and sins. These make the pillow hard. Pleas pay close attention to A,B, and C.

(A) Here is a solace—"He hath made with me an everlasting covenant." Jehovah has pledged Himself to me, and sealed the compact with the blood of Jesus. I am bound to my God and my God to me. This brings into prominence (B) a security, since this covenant is everlasting, well ordered, and sure. There is nothing to fear from the lapse of time, the failure of some forgotten point, or the natural uncertainty of things. The covenant is a rocky foundation to build on for life or for death. David feels (C) satisfaction: he wants no more for salvation or pleasure and delight. He is delivered, and he is delighted. The covenant is all a man can desire.

O my soul, turn thou this day to thy Lord Jesus, whom the great Lord has given to be a covenant to the people. Take Him to be thine all in all.

 

You are blessed!

Be safe, be steadfast, be strong and look up for our redemption is near!

Topic: Plea for Healing

Text: Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; Save me and I will be saved,

For You are my praise. Jer. 17:14; I have seen his ways, but I will heal him;

I will lead him and restore comfort to him...Isa. 57:18

 

It is the sole privilege of God to remove spiritual and physical disease. Natural disease may be instrumentally healed by physicians, but even then the honor is to be given to God who gives virtue unto medicine, and infuses power unto the human frame to cast off disease. As for spiritual sicknesses, these remain with the Great Physician alone; he claims it as his exclusive right, “I kill and I make alive, I wound and I heal;” and one of the Lord’s choice titles is Jehovah-Rophi, the Lord that heals you. “I will heal you of your wounds,” is a promise which could not come from the lip of any human being but only from the mouth of the eternal God. On this account the psalmist cried unto the Lord, “O Lord, heal me, for my bones are sore vexed,” and again, “Heal my soul, for I have sinned against You.” For this, also, the godly praise the name of the Lord, saying, “He heals all our diseases.” He who made man can restore man; He who was at first the Creator of our nature can new create it. 

 

Would you this morning make a personal call to the Lord? Whatever that trouble is, God is willing to heal whether physical or spiritual.

You are blessed.

Be safe, be strong be steadfast, and look up for our redemption is near!

Topic: Chosen

 

Text: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Eph. 1:4

 

I read about a blacksmith who specializes in turning iron into different implements. He would put the iron into fire until it is red hot. He would use his hammer to shape the iron into the desired implements. When any iron is not solid, he would throw it into a scrap metal heap for the collectors of scrap metal to haul away. The blacksmith thought about the metals that ended up in the scrap metal heap, and concluded. I will not allow my life to end up like a scrap metal.

 

Our text says, "chosen...that we should be HOLY, AND WITHOUT BLAME..." That is solid Christian! Saints of God, remind yourself often that I am chosen to be holy, I will not settle for any position than what God intends for me. We are not chosen to end up in a scrap metal dump site. Please refer to the song of Yesterday, Standing on the Promises

Text: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Eph. 1:4

CHOSEN BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD! That is beyond human comprehension. It staggers the mind. But that is the truth, unchanging truth. Just imagine the earth as a whole, and the stars, the moon, the ocean, and all other planets. Now the word of the Lord says, "I am known and chosen by God, before the foundation of the earth" This is an amazing grace. Have you truly sat down to think about this verse, "CHOSEN ME IN CHRIST JESUS BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD. This statement calls for a Holy laughter and joy! Would you take some time today if not every day, to bask in this divine truth! 

 

Years ago, while asleep, I was in the vision of the night. And in that moment, I heard clearly and distinctly, "The banner of my love is over you" When I woke up, I relayed the the vision to my wife. Ever since then, when there is any issue that want to bug me, I remind my self of the divine word "The banner of my love is over you" I am very sure YOU HAVE A COVENANT, UNBREAKABLE COVENANT, BACKED BY THE PRECIOUS BLOOD. Therefore, STAND! Unmovable and remind yourself, "I have a covenant"

 

1 Standing on the promises of Christ my king,

through eternal ages let his praises ring;

glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,

standing on the promises of God.

Refrain:

Standing, standing, 

standing on the promises of God my Savior;

standing, standing,

I’m standing on the promises of God.

 

2 Standing on the promises that cannot fail,

when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

by the living Word of God I shall prevail,

standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]

 

3 Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,

bound to him eternally by love’s strong cord,

overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,

standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]

 

4 Standing on the promises I cannot fall,

listening every moment to the Spirit’s call,

resting in my Savior as my all in all,

standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]

 

Be safe, be strong, and look up for our redemption  is near!

Topic: For Such a time as this!

Text: ‘Now the men of the city said to Elisha, “Behold, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord sees, but the water is bad, and the land is unfruitful.” (2 Kings 2:19 ESV)

 

Two very well known Biblical cities are mentioned in 2 Kings 2- Jericho and Bethel. Both in their own way are very well known throughout scripture, but both were in Elisha’s day spiritually dead and far from God, just as USA where we live today!

 

Finding himself at the river Jordan, Elisha is at the ancient city of Jericho, but it is plain from what the people have to say that things are not good there. ‘Now the men of the city said to Elisha, “Behold, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord sees, but the water is bad, and the land is unfruitful.” (2 Kings 2:19 ESV)

 

Yet in Elisha’s time, something is badly wrong in Jericho. The water is bad and soil unfruitful, and Elisha sees immediately what is wrong, Jericho has been cursed.

 

To find out the reason for this, we have to go back further in scripture. In the book of Joshua 6, the city of Jericho had fallen to the victorious Israelites in the famous battle of Jericho. At that time Joshua pronounced a curse on Jericho in this way’ Joshua laid an oath on them at that time, saying, “Cursed before the Lord be the man who rises up and rebuilds this city, Jericho (Joshua 6:26 ESV). Centuries later and shortly before the beginning of the story of Elijah, we read this in 1 Kings 16:34‘ In his days Hiel of Bethel built Jericho. He laid its foundation at the cost of Abiram his firstborn, and set up its gates at the cost of his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the Lord, which he spoke by Joshua, the son of Nun. (1 Kings 16:34 ESV)

 

Interestingly, Elisha offers salt to purify the water and land. On one level, it might seem as if this is using the well known purifying properties of salt in a symbolic way to bring about the healing of the land. What Elisha was doing was more than this though. He was renewing the covenant between God and this place and people, by means of a covenant of salt. In Numbers 18: 19

“All the holy contributions that the people of Israel present to the Lord I give to you, and to your sons and daughters with you, as a perpetual due. It is a covenant of salt forever before the Lord for you and for your offspring with you (Numbers 18:19 ESV)

 

Elisha sets about reversing the curse by asking for a new and unused bowl, one undefiled by human use and taking salt and throwing the salt in the spring. Elisha’s words show that it was God who healed the water, and who had reversed the Covenant curse on Jericho. He demanded a clean, new and unused vessel to contain the salt. In other words, a vessel that was not polluted, contaminated or compromised in any way. Surely this has something to say to us today. This whole episode shows us how the New Covenant or relationship with God was so necessary. It was not a case of patching up and repairing the Old. A sinless, spotless offering was all that God would accept.

Remember, the covenant of the precious blood of Jesus Christ is all we need to tear down the castles of wickedness that were erected under curse against USA over 200 years ago.

Beloved, do not cease to pray forgiveness and restoration of our nation and removal of bitterness as the men of Jericho did.

PRAYER

Father, we plead for your mercy and forgiveness over our land in Jesus name.

Father, let none of my household see corruption in Jesus name.

Text: Isaiah 65: 8 (TLB)
But I will not destroy them all, says the Lord; for just as good grapes are found among a cluster of bad ones (and someone will say, “Don’t throw them all away—there are some good grapes there!”) so I will not destroy all Israel, for I have true servants there.
 
Isaiah 65:8 (NKJV)
Thus says the Lord: “As the new wine is found in the cluster, And one says, ‘Do not destroy it, For a blessing is in it,’ So will I do for My servants’ sake, That I may not destroy them all.
 
Topic: Your Preservation Is Guaranteed
 
Exposition:
I remember when the new year rang in, as vivid as this very minute, and I have to confess, I had plans taller and bigger than myself, obvious strategies for their manifestation. Then, in as short as two and half to three months into the year 2020, things fell apart on every level, BUT in times like this, God reminds us not to put Him in a box.
 
I don't know the plans and dreams that you had, but Isaiah 55:8 (NLT) reads, “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. "And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine." God is reminding us to be more optimistic than ever before, despite the fact that your plans and my plans are not unfolding as we thought, but to rejoice in the fact that God's plans and desires for us are significantly greater than what we could ever imagine.
 
Brethren, our very survival in these precarious times cannot be credited to our power or might, but purely to the grace of God. In reference to our text, God has not allowed us to become prey to the raging storms around us because there is still untapped potential (new wine) in us that's yet to be explored and utilized for the magnification and exaltation of God.
 
Beloved, I urge us all to daily rest in the proven fact that God, being the same, yesterday, today and forever, will always be and do that which He said He would. "YOU ARE IMMORTAL UNTIL YOUR WORK IS DONE".
 
In Christ alone,
Sister Ekaette.

Topic: New Season

Text: Ecclesiastes 3:1a
To everything there is a season

One night I asked God to give me what to write and the next day when I woke up, the Lord brought this song “New Season”
by Israel & New Breed to my heart. I sang the chorus and I looked up the lyrics of the verses. I then said to myself, no doubt God brought this song to my heart because it is exactly what is going on. It dropped in my heart that this is indeed the heart of the FATHER even in the midst of the pandemic.
Please read, sing and meditate on the lyrics of the song.

[Intro]
It's a new season, it's a new day
A fresh anointing is flowing my way
It's a season of power and prosperity
It's a new season coming to me

[Chorus 1]
It's a new season, it's a new day
A fresh anointing is flowing my way
It's a season of power and prosperity
It's a new season
It's a new season
It's a new season
It's a new season

[Verse 1]
The devil's time is up, no longer can he bother me
'Cause the Creator of the universe, He fathers me
And it's transferable, my children's children shall be free
It's a new season (It's a new season)

[Verse 2]
If you don't know by now, you need to know it's jubilee
Where debts are canceled and your children walk in victory
It's so available to you right now, just taste and see
It's a new season (It's a new season)

[Chorus 1]
It's a new season, it's a new day
A fresh anointing is flowing my way
It's a season of power and prosperity
It's a new season
It's a new season
It's a new season
It's a new season

[Verse 3]
The new millennium presents a new horizon and
No greater time for us to make a choice and take a stand
All that we need is resting in His hands
It's a new season (It's a new season)

[Bridge 1]
All that was stolen is returned to you a hundred fold
Tried in the fire but you're coming out... gold!
All that was stolen is returned to you a hundred fold
Tried in the fire but you, you're coming out gold!

[Post-Bridge]
You're coming out gold!
You're coming out gold!
You're coming out gold!
You're coming out gold!
You're coming out gold!
You're coming out gold!

[Bridge 2]
All that was stolen is returned to you a hundred fold
Tried in the fire but you're coming out... gold!
Cling to His hand, yes, to every promise take a hold
It's a new season (It's a new season)

[Chorus 2]
It's a new season, it's a new day
A fresh anointing is flowing my way
It's a season of power and prosperity
It's a new season coming to me
It's a new season, it's coming to me
It's a new season coming to me!

[Outro]
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Can you see and hear the heart of the FATHER and all HE stands for with all that is going in our world now in this song?

David said “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.” Psalm 27:13 NKJV

FOLKS, WELCOME TO GOSHEN!

Topic: “And God said”

Text: Genesis 1:3-4, 26- “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness”.

26 “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 

 

My brethren God said (the Bible says that) “my people perish for lack of knowledge” Hosea 4:6. Please read the whole chapter and what God says in all aspects of our lives. 

“If it is not found in the Bible: don’t do it”

If you do, you are being initiated into a cult whether you want to or not”  a deep spiritual power that is not of God that makes what you do work but is not of God as described in chapter 6 of Hosea. 

Our convenient, existence and safety is God’s task. So after Our God took the oath and sworn by Himself to Abraham in Genesis 22: 16-18 and said, “I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, 18 and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.”

 

“God said” Matthew 26: 27 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. 29 But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.”

We are in covenant with Christ till we see Him face in our father’s kingdom. 

We can only connect with Jesus and no other person or pastors. 

Liberation of God’s people is now only through the cup of the new covenant. 

From the Coronavirus to the hurricane: “God said” “peace be still “ to every storm, every deceptive spirits even in the church of God. 

It is our decision who to believe and follow what “God said”about our Families, children, church family, school system, and all aspects of our lives. 

The song writer wrote: 

“I put you in front, in front of my melody, You’re all that matters” 

Brethren,  know and live only by what “God said”.

August 26, 2020- Unimaginable Peace

Affirmation

He will not fail me. He will not forsake me.

He is my light as I navigate my way through this year.

In JESUS name. Amen!

 

Topic: Unimaginable peace

Text: Isaiah: 54: 10-14

10For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, But My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall my covenant of peace be removed," Says the Lord, who has mercy on you.

11 "O you afflicted one, Tossed with tempest, and not comforted, Behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems, and lay your foundations with sapphires.

12 I will make your pinnacles of rubies, your gates of crystal, and all your walls of precious stones.

13 All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.

14 In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you.

 

Exposition: I was truly inspired this past week when we were given Isaiah 54: 10-14 to reflect upon, and not because my favorite verse is found in vs 13-14 but because it is needed at a time like this.

Vs 10: We all know mountains and hills are immovable objects so if they are and God is saying that though they move or are shaken his love for us will not be. How reassuring to know that his love and covenant of peace abides day in and day out. His love for us will not be removed.

Vs 11-12: Can we not identify with this? How the world has been afflicted by COVID, poor leadership, corruption in high places, but then our time has come. The Lord wants to rebuild the world, this nation the way he deems fit. He will cloth us with rubies, turquoise stones and other precious jewels. All that the canker worm has taken he will restore. Hallelujah! No wonder why our church members are building houses at a time like this. It is God’s promise to you.

Vs 13-14: And because we know whom we have believed, our children can see what the Lord is doing on their behalf and they are at peace as the lord is fighting their battles and establishing their goings.

Be Very Encouraged

Text: Romans 5: 1-11 -” Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ………...”.

Topic: The Blessings of a Believer

There is a popular saying that membership has its benefits. This passage points out certain blessings that is derived by a believer from being in the family of God. These blessings are part of the experiences of one who has experienced the salvation of God. The first blessing we see is the blessing of having peace with God, which is different from the peace of God. While the peace of God is something that is inward, peace with God is having a friendship and fellowship with God where there was once strife. Various parts of this text demonstrate that, prior to being a believer, when that one was without strength, powerless, in sin, and even an enemy of God, God reached across and reconciled that one to Himself through the work of Jesus Christ on the cross. As a result, peace replaced enmity. The second blessing is that access is provided to a believer to approach the throne of grace boldly, in that the barriers of sin and enmity that waspreviously preventing direct access to God has been removed by Christ’s finished work. Prophet Isaiah explained this barrier in Isaiah 59:2. Through Christ’s finished work, because of being a child of God, a believer no longer has to sneak into the presence of God. 

The third blessing is that a believer now has a different perspective on times of trials and tribulations. The truth is, no matter who we are in this life, we will sometimes have downtimes - times of distress and pressure. Being a believer does not insulate one from these times. As 1st Peter 4: 12-13 puts it, beloved of God should “not think it strange” concerning these times. A believer develops a different perspective, knowing that God is doing something that he cannot do through any other way than through the trial. An additional blessing that we find in this passage is the blessing of preservation. This is really referencing eternal life, that a believer is going to be saved from the wrath tocome. Those who have given their life to Christ will never lose that relationship. Finally, this passage talks about the blessing of power.  This is the power to live victoriously, in the midst of trial, persecution, and suffering. God’s power to overcome all of these things will be daily evident in the life of such a believer.  It is a blessing to be a believer. Have you given your life to Christ?
