God And Man

Calvary greetings to everyone in Jesus Christ Mighty Name, Amen.

I want to teach on the message titled “God And Man”. God call us my Son, this word of God is taken from the book of Proverbs 4:20, which says “My Son, attend to my words, incline thine ear unto my sayings”. Solomon was the son of David and David gave Solomon an instruction concerning God, who God is and how he can survive, emphasizing that what will make him to reign as an excellent king is when God is available to him 24 hours day and night. He instructed him, ‘My Son attend to my word’, it is rather unfortunate that people left the Bible. The Bible is the word of God that will enrich you and make you become somebody on earth, that is why God told Solomon, ‘My word will prosper you’, and further instructed him not to depart from it, saying “This word that I have spoken let your eyes be fixed to it”. The meaning of the eyes in the above instruction is that you should search the scriptures, study what I said, keep them in the midst of your heart, for if you keep it in the midst of your heart, as written in the book of Proverbs 4:21, then the word of God will now prosper you.

People are looking for where there is no God, what will prosper you is the word of God. When you know the word of God, what God said concerning you and you house it in your heart you will prosper. Verse 22 says “For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh”, the passage says that when you carry the word of God and start making use of it in your daily life, one major assurance is that God will give you life, What is the life? The life that carries joy, the life that carries good health. Let me inform you, when you claim to believe in God and you are running after women, sickness will locate you, disgrace will locate you, your strength and true spirit will be adulterated, above all you will be denied of prosperity, but when you put the word of God in your heart into action and live a Christ life you will get good health.

A man that commits fornication and adultery will eat poison, he will fall into the hand of Ogbanje, Olokun and Mamie water, he will run out of money, he will run out of personality, he will run into disgrace, he will not know the time that he will go and start chasing peoples wives. That is why the word of God will tell you what to do and what not to do regarding everything that God forbids.

Verse 23 of Proverbs Chapter 4 says “Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life”, the passage says Keep your heart on the word of God, that is why God told Joshua, ‘This word of God meditate on it day and night so that you will have good success, that is what God told Joshua in his calling.

So when you want to have a better understanding of how you can live a comfortable and diligent life, a life that carries respect, a life that is beautiful, a life that will yield you wisdom and a life that will make you productive in the things of God, you must be someone who search the scriptures and practice the word of God. Verse 24 of the same Chapter says “Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee”. God is telling you that you should not speak the language of evil, that you should not talk like the unbelievers, but to always let good words proceed out of your mouth. Verse 25 says “Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee”, what the verse is saying is that when you see a woman naked or when you see an evil person dressed criminally, you don’t need to look at such things, instead let your eyes look right on, the right on there means Wisdom, because Wisdom is by the right. Look at the word of God and meditate upon what the word says, While in Verse 26, it says “Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established”, there is a way, there is a path, there is an outing a Christian need to attend, we don’t need to see a Native doctor celebrating his birthday and a Christian will go for such occasion, No, the journey you embark upon should be a journey that is clean. Let all thy ways be established, you must do things the way that God needs us to do it.Verse 27 says “Turn not to the right hand nor to the left : remove thy foot from evil”, this place is telling us that as Christians we must not aide evil and must not work in evil.

According to the book of Proverbs 4:9, if you obey the word of God and live by it, it will bring an ornament of grace upon your head and you will get a crown of glory. Those who serve God righteously will live a decent life, they will have a decent mouth, a decent tongue, everything you do will always be beautiful and you will have a reward.

When God was with Solomon, during the visit of Queen Sheba, she was marveled at how King Solomon constructed his buildings and everything within the environment looked so beautiful and captivating, She told the people that were with King Solomon that God was with Solomon, that they don’t know what they are enjoying.

If you are a Christian your talk, your doings, the car you drive, God will affect it, the food you eat and anything that you are involved in, you will see the beauty of God in it. That is why you have to examine yourself and go to the area where you can get the glory of God. When the glory of God was with Moses, when he came down from the mountain where he went for his forty days fasting and prayer, the people that were there saw the glory of God around him.

Today, how many of us who professes that we are Christians can people look upon and see the glory, the presence and the goodness of God in their lives?

Again, the response of some so called Christians to questions which they are being asked is quite unfortunate. Any Christian who responds that ‘We are managing’, when asked ‘How are you?’, is not speaking the language of God, such response is the language of an unbeliever and a language of Satan.

Any person that follows God must lead a decent and beautiful life. So I want to use this medium to enjoin all Christians that we need to make our hands clean, so that the Wisdom of God will come upon our lives, that is the truth, we need to depend on God, we need to follow God, we need to know that God is our source. Many people do not allow the word of God to exalt them, many people do not carry God in their hearts, but they carry money in their hearts, they carry unbelieve in their hearts, which is not supposed to be because the Bible says that Wisdom is the Principal thing. What is Wisdom? Wisdom is the word of God, because the word of God does not fail, the word of God is Spiritual and Physical.

This is why I want to let everyone know this week that we need to attend to the will of God so that we can prosper. Knowing that for you to prosper as an individual is in the word of God.

That is why God is telling us to exalt her, I urge you to study the word of God house it in your heart and love it.Many people don’t have love for the word of God. I want you to get this clear that when you love God you practice what is good and run away from evil.

Imagine a situation where people wake up and begin to talk of Nigeria being Jaga Jaga, what you are seeing in Nigeria did not start today, it has been there for a very long time, so it is in some other countries of the world. Evil have been there right from onset, but for those of us who follow God, we will enjoy the presence of God, for God has assured His children that when things are hard and difficult they will be rejoicing, because God is there to make a way where there is no way for us.

So let us build our Faith on the word of God, the word of God is there waiting for you to use, when you use it, you will have a comfortable life.This is why I want everyone to know that every believer has a reward, because God is not selfish. Please do not follow the world, your automobile car is not an achievement, the house you built is not an achievement, but Jesus Christ is your achievement.

Personally, my achievement is the Cross of Calvary, my qualification is the Cross of Calvary, my qualification is the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world, my qualification is that God have dealt with Satan and put Satan under my feet. Some people do not see God as Over comer, they don’t see God as He has done it for us. You need to understand that God has already fought the battle for us and now is the time for us all to enjoy the euphoria of the victory.

I want to bless God for your life and to let you know that God charged us to attend to His word, because the word of God will prosper you, the word of God will cleanse you, the word of God will make you to be a wise man, woman, boy or girl, this is what happened to Timothy.Please I want to use this medium to urge the Pastors to spend quality time in teaching their congregation.

The Sunday School should not be given to an unbeliever, people who live outside righteousness to handle, You need to spend quality time during the Sunday School at least One hour in teaching them the Bible, while the message should take at least Thirty minutes, so that the people will understand and know who God is.

Many people do not know the capacity of God, the greatness of God, the power of God, the God that divided the red sea, the God that makes the dry bones to come back to life.

Almighty God is our hope, He changes time and season, He gave names to people, He breathes life on people, some persons don’t know that God can breathe on them. When you read the book of St. John 20:21, God breathed on the disciples. God can breathe on you and the dry bones in your life will disappear.

I enjoin everyone to allow God the opportunity to breathe on them, because when God breathes on you, your life will begin to flourish and bear fruit according to His word. God wants to see you prosper exceedingly. God wants us to sell His name to the unbelievers so that they can come and join us to drink the living water.

Because I Follow The Things That Good Is

Calvary greetings to everyone in Jesus Christ Mighty Name, Amen.I want to teach on the message titled “Because I Follow The Things That Good Is”. The topic is taken from the book of Psalms 38:20b, which says “Because I follow the thing that good is”.

When you follow the things that are good your life will not grow mucus instead your life will be bright. You can’t find God in bad things you find God in good things, that is why the book of Acts 10:38 says that the ministry of Jesus Christ is the ministry of doing good, healing people and God was with him. So when you look at who God is, God is a God that loves what is good because God does not spoil things. He is a judge he does not ruin things, that is why the quotation in the book of Psalms 38:20-22 says “They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries, because I follow the thing that good is. Forsake me not, O Lord, O my God, be not far from me. Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation”. God is a God that can help me and you, many Christians don’t know that when you start practicing what is good then God will fight your adversaries.

Who are your adversaries? They are enemies from your home, enemies in the street, enemies in the church, enemies in your calling, enemies in your finance, enemies in your good health, enemies that are not of God, they hate God. That is why the book of Psalms 2:1 says “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? Verse 4 says “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh : the Lord shall have them in derision”.David the Psalmist said ‘Be not far from me O Lord’, if you love good things God will be closer to you everyday of your life under the sun under the moon. Many people don’t practice what is good, that is why you need to read the Bible and know whom God is. The Psalmist said, ‘make haste to help me O Lord my Salvation’.

God is our Salvation, that is why once you are a child of God you will not be like Cain. Many people today, do not live the way they ought to live to please Christ Jesus. First John 3:12-13 says “Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous. Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you”.

Once you are a man that lives a righteous life you will be at the side of Abel, you think what is good towards your brethren, that is why we have fake Pastors who wake up to criticize people that are living a righteous life, that is why you see Pastors who are wizards who are not called by God, they have the Synagogue of Satan operating, everyday they talk of money, money, money, they don’t act as good disciples to their congregation, they don’t teach the people the word of God, they are after mansion and there is no Holy Spirit in them, they are Synagogue of Satan, the church of the wicked one, which is the church of Cain. But the church of Abel, practice good things and once you are living a righteous life the world will hate you, they will give you names that is not yours, that is why the book of Matthew 11:6 says “And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me”. The calling of God does not permit you to give account to a man, Prophet Joseph Igbodo will not give his account to any Pastor or to any Bishop, Prophet or any man. I give my account to Jesus Christ because I was called by God.

When you look at the life many people are living today, they are living the life of Cain. In Genesis 4:4-7, you will see that the life of Cain was devilish, today people are after mansion, they do not preach the word of God as expected. Nobody is saying that it is wrong to build a house, but after building the house and the congregation that fellowship in it doesn’t know the word of God, it means that you don’t have any house for God. That is why today, you see people using ‘ogbanje spirit’ to operate the church, it will not work. The book of Genesis 4:4-7 says “And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering. But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the Lord said unto Cain, why art thou wroth? And why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shall thou not be accepted? And if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him”.

When believers and Pastors are not doing well they talk of other people, they give other people wrong names. Cain, is not happy to see that God loved Abel more than him, Abel took the best for God while Cain, took the wrong for God, and God choose the best from the two.

A righteous man is a member of Abraham’s family, let me emphasize on it, A man who leads a righteous life, that choose good things and follow good things in his daily life is Born Again, such a man is having the character of Jesus Christ, he is a product of the Holy Spirit. But any man that is so concerned about his personal benefits and that of his children while members of his congregation are not progressing because he didn’t teach them the word of God and himself do not have the Holy Spirit, that is the Synagogue of Satan.

That is why I urge everyone to examine themselves, look at your life as an individual whether you have the character of Jesus Christ.Today many churches are filled with unbelievers, Deacons that commit fornication, Deacons that are into occultism, Deacons that are into money rituals, Deacons that carry Satan in their heart, they are the ones who seat at the front rows in the church, being involved in such vices never enhance the growth of the Church. Having a state of the arts building is not the growth of the church but when you are able to teach them properly to adhere strictly to the word of God you will win their hearts to God, the stony heart is broken, you remove and cleanse them with the word of God, the same spiritual tool which you will use to evacuate them from dry bones, having such in place means you have a Ministry.

Many Pastors today are dirty, they are fornicators, many of them are possessed with lying spirit, immoralities and drunkenness, that is the major reason why there is no growth in the church.

When you look at the book of Jude 1:11, it reads “Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balsam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core”. Many Christians today are like Cain, they are greedy after error, that is when they see wrong things and embrace it, they are like Balaam who is looking for money tasking people, bringing Cooperative, Esusu thrift contribution into the Church and borrowing money in the church, they contravene what is written in the book of Deuteronomy 28:12 which says “The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand, and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow”, but some Pastors are telling people to borrow. Presently, there are fake Pastors and fake believers everywhere paving way for the devil to have succeeded in bringing Esusu thrift contribution into the Church, alongside demonic fashion wares which some women and ladies wear to church exposing their nakedness.

Holy Spirit cannot dwell in a place where there is no love, where there is no truth and where the word of God is not the Foundation.Please I implore everyone to go back and have a rethink and bring the word of God to the Church.

The choir/music department is dirty, some of those who sing praises are into yahoo yahoo, they are thieves, some of them are witches and wizards. How can you use witches and wizards to preach the gospel? The witches and wizards in the church are enemies of the gospel because the Bible says ‘Suffer not the witch to live’, and I want to inform you that today people are worshipping money, there is love of money in the church, people preach money, the gospel of Jesus Christ is Salvation and not Money.

Cain, did not receive salvation because he was a greedy person, many Pastors are poor today because they are greedy, Balaam was a greedy man, Core was an enemy of righteousness, they all perished.Please let the church repent for if they don’t repent they will go to hell.It is quite unfortunate that many churches today have no miracle and signs and wonders because they have derailed from the laid down instructions of God. So let the Men of God go back to the truth and to the love of God. I enjoin everyone to give their lives completely to Jesus Christ so that your lives will bear fruit because you are called to bear fruit, according to the book of St. John 15:16 which says “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain : that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you“.

This is the word of the Lord, kindly digest the message and act upon it accordingly so that you will enjoy the bountiful blessings of God. Thank you.
