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.

Stop Using Harvest Thanksgiving As Means To Amass Wealth-Igbodo Tells Pastors

The General Overseer Divine Faith Evangelical Mission International headquarter situated, 108 Charles Street, Agbor in Ika South Local Government Area, Prophet Joseph Igbodo has called on clerics to desist from acts of using annual harvest thanksgiving festival to amass wealth which according to him is not scriptural.

Prophet Joseph Igbodo

Prophet Igbodo made the call while giving a sermon at the 2020 harvest thanksgiving service, held on Sunday December 13, 2020.According to him, “Giving should be from the heart and not under compulsion for God loves a cheerful giver. On this special day of harvest thanksgiving, it is expected of everyone to give willingly.

Despite the quality of your thanksgiving offering, it is very important to know that thanksgiving is only meant for righteous people because God detests the offering of the wick

Irrespective of your personality, what matters most in life is your relationship with God. The message is calling on all to live a Christ – like life by keeping God’s commandments. Living a righteous life brings God’s favour”, he said.

Prophet Igbodo, who doubles as the Proprietor of Job Orphanage Home and the Proprietor of St. Stephen Trust Widows Home, pointed out that because of their blessings; many people have forgotten God who, through his grace and mercy has favoured them.

Continuing, the clergy condemned the attitude of some church members who borrow money just because they want to impress their pastor with their giving during thanksgiving. He said God does not accept such offering.

He admonished that it is God’s expectation that we should give to him that which comes from our heart.

He said, because of the shame of giving offering from their widow’s mite, many do absent themselves on the day of harvest thanksgiving. He reiterated that harvest thanksgiving is not a forum for fund raising for the church unlike what is being done in so many churches today.

He used the opportunity to call on the good people of Ika nation to celebrate the Christmas and New Year festivals with their limited resources and not go about borrowing just to celebrate it big. He advised all to be close and thankful to God for saving us in the midst of 2020 challenges of life.
