Sing the above song with all your heart.

Don't forget that the September Holy Ghost night is specially for those looking for fruit of the Womb and those that wants to be lifted into Glory
Topic: And God Said; Come and Dine
Text: John 21:12-13
The Holy Communion is usually referred to as the last supper. Mark 14:22-25
It signifies that the old era is going and a new one is about to begin.
In the life of everyone tonight, the era of suffering is over.
I decree to you today, the road that will lead you back, the Almighty God will block it.
Peter was frustrated after the death of Jesus. He lost hope and thought to return to his former trade.
His resolve got his other friends with him, but Jesus had other plans for Him.
The miracles that you cannot explain will begin to happen in your life.
Under the unction of the Holy Spirit, I decree unto you; the miracles that you cannot explain will begin to happen in your life. The power to pray day and night, receive it in Jesus Name.
The God who called this convention will see to it that for the rest of your life, you won't know tiredness.
The power to pray day and night, receive right now in the name of Jesus.
I decree that from this day forward; if you ever weep at all, it will be for joy.
1 Kings 19:4-8 When God invites you to dine with Him, it shows He hasn't finished with you yet.
Don't listen to the devil, God didn't make you partake of this convention for fun. You may not be sure of tomorrow, but God is calling you to come and dine because He is still your hope of glory. Colossians 1:27
Come and Dine at the Table so you can put Christ in you afresh.
I have never been as confident as I am now that your tomorrow will be alright. The holy communion is not an ordinary meal. It’s the Lord’s supper not breakfast nor lunch. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. Your sorrow, confusion and failure ends tonight! The Holy communion isn't a casual meal. Weeping may endure for a night, joy comes in the morning. It is the Lord's supper, not breakfast or lunch. The Holy communion shouldn't be taken unworthily or in forgiveness. The summary of what Jesus said to Peter was to come and dine at he'd receive the power not to fail or disappoint God again. You'll receive this power tonight in Jesus' name
As you eat the bread tonight, cry unto the Lord for a clean break from the past and a new beginning. When you drink the wine tonight, please cry to the Lord for power; power to succeed, to win souls, to do the impossible.

Don't just hear tonight. Hearken; catch the Word of God with your spirit.
Text: Genesis 1:1-3 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And 1. God said, Let there be light: and there was light. It is possible for a crowd of people to gather, God will speak and only one person would hear. Again the importance of any statement is dependent on who is speaking or making the statement. When God said let there be light, He meant let confusion end, there must be order now.
1 Corithians 14:33. Separate light from darkness. John 9:5, Matthew 5:14-16: Jesus called us the light of the world, He separated us into Himself. Tonight I'm saying to someone, darkness will leave you alone.
2. God said, Let there be light: Let Progress Begin. Exodus 10:21-23. Darkness stops Progress. When you are surrounded by darkness, you can't move, When Light comes, Motion Begins Genesis 26:12-14. I say to someone today, Your progress will be accelerated!!
3. God said, Let there be light: fruitfulness begin. Genesis 1:21-22. I decree that your emptiness ends tonight.
4. God said, Let there be light: Let joy begin Psalm 30:5. I decree from today, you shall sorrow no more. The one I probably the most under the light series is let joy begin. I decree to someone here, Sorrow ends in your Life tonight!!! Prayer Point: Father, command light into my life in the mighty name of Jesus. First time God spoke to man, He said, You are Blessed! Genesis 1:26-28.
1. To be Blessed: It means let all the forces in Heaven and in Earth see to it that you succeed. Genesis 27:26-29
Not every soil is good soil, even Jesus affirmed so in Matthew 13:3-8. But being blessed means that even the earth will favour you. I decree in Jesus name that from now on, you'll sow on good soil. From now on everywhere you go, you’ll have helpers. The Lord ask me to tell you, the people you expected to help you didn’t show up, He’s saying I’ll show up for you
2. To be Blessed: It means you cannot be cursed of man. Numbers 23:5-11. I decree that every curse in your life will be changed to a blessing.
3. To be Blessed: It means whatever you touch will multiply Psalms 23:5. Because you’re here tonight, your joy will overflow.
Prayer: Father, Because you said I am Blessed I command Every forces in Heaven and in Earth to come to my aid Now!!! Prayer: Father, I demand Multiplication because I must begin to Overflow now!!
4. To be Blessed: It means I will protect you Isaiah 54:17 And God said no weapon fashioned against me shall prosper. Mark 16:17–18 No poison will have any effect on you. I decree any witch or wizard that tries to harm you they will die. Daddy says before the end of this month, you’ll sing a song and that song will be
“Jesus, You're a wonder,
Jesus, You're a wonder,
Jesus, You're a wonder,
You're a wonder to my soul.”
Daniel 3:14-30 A King got angry with God's sons and decided to heat up for and burn them alive. The fire was so hot that it burnt its feeders. But God told the fire to suspend its ability to burn. I decree anyone planning to throw you into fire, the fire will finish them. Daniel 6:1-the end. Even Daniel was thrown into the dentist of lions.
God shut the mouth of the Lions for Daniel. Prayer: Father, According to your word, Protect me and all members of my Family.
5. To be Blessed: It means I will provide for you Genesis 17:1. God said to Abraham, I am the Almighty God, the All Sufficient God.
He can provide through any Means:
1 kings 17:2-6. He provided through birds
1 kings 19:1-8 He provided through Angels
John 6:5-13 He provided through a small boy.
I don't know how God will do it, but I'm decreeing that all your needs shall be met!
Father, please, I don't want to know the method You will use or how You want to do it, just send help to me and my family urgently in Jesus name.
6. To be Blessed: It means I will promote you Isaiah 66:1 God said Heaven is my throne, the earth is my footstool. God is higher than the Highest No seat is bigger than He's own. Proverbs 21:1
God can control even the sleep of Kings. Esther 6:1-13, I decree today; anyone who can help you but doesn't want to, God will take away their sleep.
Daddy says the sun that will rise tomorrow morning will mark the beginning of your rising.
God caused Pharaoh to have two frightening dreams because Joseph had to be promoted from being a prisoner to a prime minister Genesis 41:44, I don't know who I'm talking to, any force hindering your promotion, God will give them dreams tonight.
Prayer: Father, Tonight Command my Promotion. Father, it may look as if I might never fulfill my destiny, please Lord, You have the final say, speak a Word into my life!
7. To be Blessed: It means I have the last say Revelation 3:7, Psalm 33:11 God said, I have the Keys of David, When I open no man can shut, When I shut no man can open. If He says it, it is settled.
God said to tell you for tonight to command Him for what you want Him to do for you. Isaiah 45:11.

Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye

Prayer: Father, I believe, my mountains will move tonight.
Join your hands with your neighbor and pray for the person.

Boys, shout “praise the Lord,” Girls, shout “hallelujah!”
Announcement: Tomorrow we would be moving to the New Auditorium in Shimawa
Topic: Move The Mountain
Text: Mark 11:22-23 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
You must pray tonight because the violent take it by force! The devil only understands the language of violence.
Bible says Resist the devil! Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
An adage says, it is ok for the slave to escape and it is ok for the master (slave owner) to pursue and possibly recapture. But for you, you shall be totally free tonight in Jesus name. Tell the devil You are Leaving me alone tonight!!! You don't treat the devil gently. God never said to be gentle with the devil. I taught my children at the school of disciples, you don't act gentle as a dove when you find a snake under your duvet.
To move mountains, Jesus said you must have Faith in God. This means you must really know who God is. Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
You must know God that he is unchanged. Whatever He has done before He can do again. Acts 10:34-35 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
There’s only one language the devil understands, it’s the language of violence. Numbers 33:55 But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.
Don't bother to tell God about your mountain; wrong approach, God knows all mountains, even before they started. Psalm 90:1-2 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. 2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
If you are here tonight and you are sick, Tell the Sickness, It is God who made me. John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. Tell sickness Mark 3:1-5 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand. 2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him. 3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth. 4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace. 5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other. Assures you any withered part of your body can be made whole again. Tell sickness your God has enough power to cure the incurable, so much power that even the helm of His garment can heal.
Mark 5:25-34. Tell sickness, He has done it before, He’ll yet do it again. Tell your sickness about the leper your God made whole Mark 1:40-45. Tell sickness your God doesn’t change; Hebrews 13:8. Tell sickness according to Psalms 118:17. Prayer Point: Father in the mighty name of Jesus I command every sickness,disease,ache, disorder or health related issues in my body move now.
Perhaps your mountain is not sickness but poverty. Tonight, you need to address the issue of poverty in your family. Poverty is a destroyer! You will tell Poverty, My God is the All sufficient one Genesis 17:1, According to Psalms 24:1, your God owns the earth and it’s fullness thereof. Tell poverty God said, He wishes that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers Psalm 50:10. You don’t know the meaning of poverty until you’re in a financial fix that God alone can bring you out of. Prayer Point: Father in the mighty name of Jesus I decree poverty get out of my family, From tonight onward, everything your heart desires for God you’ll have more than enough for it in Jesus mighty name. Your Mountain could be Demonic Oppression. You may be healthy and wealthy but be a slave to fear. You will tell those demons about your God. You will them he is the Almighty. Psalms 91:1
Tell them your God is mighy in battle Psalms 25:7-10, If you are under demonic oppression, you must tell the demons that your God is the Lord of Hosts. Exodus 15:3. Tell Demons that at the name of Jesus every kneel shall bow. God has given me authority, Mark 16:17. Upon this Holy mountain, you will be free tonight.
Prayer point: Father in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, every demon in my life and family get out in the name of Jesus. Maybe your mountain is fruitless effort, miscarriages and barrenness, that will change tonight in Jesus' name. You're going to tell barrenness in whatever form it may be to move and it will. I decree every form of fruitless effort in your life will end tonight in the mighty name of Jesus.
Prayer Point: Father in the mighty name of Jesus I command every fruitless efforts to end in my life right now.
One of the biggest mountains that can stand before a person is generational curse.
In the name of the one who sent me, every curse in your family will be broken tonight!! Tell the curse that your God has redeemed you from the curse you will tell that curse, My God is a Redeemer, Galatians 3:13-14.
You will tell the curse, Whatever your source, Joshua 6:26, 2 Kings 2:19-22, Matthew 11:12
Prayer point: In the mighty name of Jesus, every curse in my family, I destroy it tonight,
You must make sure the mountain you are trying to move is not placed there by God because of your sin. The mountain will refuse to move. Numbers 22:31-34. Demons could be big, but it doesn't matter how big they're, when you command them to move in Jesus' name, they will respond Acts 19:13-17 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?. You can't live in sin and expect demons to obey you. There's no how you'll be in sin and ask grace to abound for you. Before you pray the last prayer, please, make sure to be a child of God; so that when demons are flying out, you won't be their new location. Isaiah 59:1-2
Only Children of God can command Mountains to move and they will obey! Run to Jesus now!! The blood of Jesus can wipe away ALL sins!!! Kindly join your hands to pray this or tag your neighbors:
“Father, every mountain in the life of my neighbors, I command now, mountain move in Jesus' name.”

Topic: It Shall Be well
Text: Isaiah 3:10
And God said to someone reading this, “all will be well.”
God could speak to a crowd, they may all listen and just one fellow may hearken.
It is the one who hearkens that will get the message.
There’s someone here tonight who will hear from God. The one who asked me to tell you that all will be well is the Almighty God Himself, when He speaks, it is done. There’s somebody here tonight, a miracle that’ll appear like a dream is coming your way now in the mighty name of Jesus. A miracle that will appear as a dream will come your way now in Jesus' name.” When you’ve Faith in the one who speaks, it’ll affect the way you behave, the word of God has to you tonight; “All will be well”
All will be well” can mean different things to different people.
The one who said “All will be well” is the great physician Himself.
1. All will be well,to the sick means you will be healed. Exodus 15:26, to every one who is sick here today, you will recover!! For those sick, all He requires is your faith. Matthew 9:20-22. I decree in the name of Jesus, every sickness will go from you tonight!
2. All will be well, to the poor means your poverty will be over. Genesis 1:20-21, the one who is speaking is the one that says Silver and Gold are mine. Haggai 2: 8-9. Matthew 6:24-33 When He says “All will be well” to you, He’s talking about His Almightiness not your human ability. It means tell the poor they'd be rich; as long as they're seeking God's kingdom first. Matthew 6:33 When you hearken, you'd know that it's not about your country's economy. As the Lord lives I decree you’ll never borrow again.
3. All will be well, to the one who have failed means you’ll never fail again Isaiah 43:13 Just one breakthrough is all you need and there won’t be enough room to contain it. I decree, before this week is over, you will have a breakthrough!!! In the name of the One who told me to gather you together, you will have your breakthrough before the week is over.
4. All Will be well, to the barren means you’ll will be fruitful Jeremiah 32:27, God asked me to tell a Barren, Hearken diligently, by this time next year, you will be carrying your own babies!! The God that delivered a set of twins without a womb, He’s saying to you “All will be well” and He’ll yet do yours for you.
5. All will be well, to the captive, the one in Bondage means you will be delivered from the captives. The one speaking is the Lord of Hosts. Isaiah 49:21-26. Before this week is over, forces of darkness will see you and run.
Say ye to the Righteous it shall be well with him, not the wicked, pretender, liars, adulterers/tress, the occult, Isaiah 3:11 says, Woe to the wicked, it shall be ill with him.
You must surrender unto Him
You must decide not to go back into the world of sin.
Then and only then can be well with you.
Father, I’ve heard your word and I believe you, it shall be well with me.

Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye
Praise God for what He's about to do in your life this week. Thank Him for He's worthy to be praised!
Father, during this convention, please speak to my neighbor
Worthy, worthy is the Lamb that was slain, glory hallelujah!
Alpha and Omega,
The Beginning and End,
Our All in all, glory be to Your holy name.
Thank You for previous conventions
Number of children born during the convention is currently at 23.
11 boys, 12 girls.
Let the boys shout “praise the Lord” while the girls should respond with “halleluyah!”
Also, we have a set of twins among them
The theme for this convention is, “And God Said.”
Text: Deuteronomy 28:1-7
The word Hearken is different from the word Listen.
To Hearken means to listen with rapt attention, like your life depends on it.
To give attention to every detail. This is a very special and serious Convention, don't play about it.
If your life doesn't change by the end of this week, there's very little hope for you.
If you Hearken Diligently to God, several things will have to you.
1. You will be blessed. Deuteronomy 28: 1-2.
2 Kings 4:1-7 The woman in the story above hearkens diligently, and her obedience paid off for her.
I can guarantee you, if you'll hearken diligently, you'll sing a new song before tomorrow morning.
Hearken Diligently, Pay attention to every word and I can assure you, before tomorrow, You will already be singing a new song
2. You will be healed if you Hearken Diligently. Psalm 107:20.
If by the time God will send His word to Heal you and you are distracted, you will miss it.
3. If your Hearken Diligently, you will not only be healed, you will remain healthy. Exodus 15:26.
4. If you’ll hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God you’ll be victorious. Deuteronomy 28:9
5. As you begin to hearken diligently, you’ll enjoy victory without a fight and remain victorious.
6. If You Hearken Diligently, you will be Prosperous. You Will lend to Nations. Deuteronomy 28:11-12. Don't be deceived, God wants us to be rich, wealthy and prosperous. He even wants us to lend to nations.
It's not God's will for us to be poor. We cannot take the gospel to the world without money.
7. You shall be promoted and remain promoted. Deuteronomy 28:13.
Either the devil likes it or not, in the mighty name of Jesus I decree you’ll reach the top. Hearken diligently and surrender to Jesus. Rom 6:23.
Come to Jesus willingly; say bye-bye to the world of sin. Matthew 11:28-30. However, sinners cannot partake of all these.
If you don't surrender to God willingly, you will still bow by force one day and proclaim that Jesus is Lord. Surrender to Jesus tonight; don't wait till tomorrow. Tomorrow may be too late.
1. Admit you're a sinner and ask for mercy
2. Accept Him as Lord & Saviour; renounce your sinful ways.
Ask the Lord to have mercy on you and save your soul. Promise Him that you'll serve Him with all your life.
Tell Him to wash you clean in His blood. Almighty and most merciful Father, please remember Your promise that You won't push away those who come to You.
Please, receive them into Your family; please answer by fire when they call on You in Jesus' name.

When you are in christ, the blood flows through you - John 15:5, Rev. 12:10-11
1. The blood guarantees you victory
PP: From now no more impossibilities for you
Talking about achieving Greatness
You can command
Your father dress will make you whole Mark 5:25-34, Acts 19:11-12
Word of Knowledge
Daddy said there is someone here that if nobody will help you, I will help you
I have told you before relax, the storm will soon be over
Your testimony will be greater
Mark 4:31-41 - Daddy decree peace, Job 22:21-28, John 14:12
Every obstruction to your greatness they be moved tonight in Jesus name
As greatness is bestowed unto you - Acts 1:8, 8:5-8
From tonight, every where you go miracles will follow you. If you are a child of God because your father is great, you will be great. So pursue greatness vigorously, don't settle for anything less Habakkuk 2:2, Proverbs 22:29
The Lord said there is someone here who has been pursuing something for a long while before the end of this year you will say at last
Daddy asked me to explain something: The word wonderful is a combination of two words wonder and full.
Wonder - is that which causes you to wonder. It is what causes you to open your mouth when you don't want to. Daddy said a miracle is coming your way that will make you say Haaa!
Pursue greatness vigorously, refuse to die small
PP: All those who think you will never be great, will see you coming and tremble in Jesus name.
Everyone who thought you will come to them begging in the name of Jesus you will tell them I have enough
You will be great
But you must be willing to pay the Price 1 Corinthians 12:31.
How great do you want to be? Ordinary, very great or extremely great.
May God answer your prayer in Jesus name. Please when you become great don't forget God because you are going to be great there is nothing the devil can do about it solomon was born great, he achieved greatness but he said vanity upon vanity King Saul was not born great but was bestowed upon, but he end up a mad man because he forgot God
1. Thank the Almighty God for loving you, saving your soul and bring you into his family
2. Lift your voice and say father please don't let me sell my birthright, am born to be great, don't let me sell my birthright.
3. Father please help me to achieve the greatness that you planned for me. Everything I need to become great make it available
4. Father please anoint me mightily for superior greatness not ordinary greatness.
5. Father please when I become great, don't let me disappoint you

Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye

The Holy One of Israel, the Most high God, The Almighty, The Alpha and Omega, Give Him glory! Thank You Ancient of Days!
Worthy, worthy is the Lamb, that was slain.
Glory, halleluyah! Praise the Lord!
July Holy Ghost Service:
Theme: Swimming in Glory 7
Sub-theme: Born to Be Great
In the name of Jesus, none of my children will die as tenants.
Bible text: Psalms 103:1-5 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
Psalm 130:3-4 If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? 4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared
Isaiah 59:1-2 Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
If you want God to hear you when you praise Him, you need forgiveness.
You also need healing whether now or later. 1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Redemption is available for you.Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
Jesus offers you redemption through His blood, You need the mercy of God.
Lamentations 3:22-23 It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. You need God to satisfy you with all you need. Matthew 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. If you truly consider this, not everyone born at the same time with you is alive today. It is in your own interest that you take the cup of salvation and call on Jesus, however when He's near. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved, Psalms 116:12-14. If you refuse God's invitation, be sure that trouble comes soon. Proverbs 1:20 Before it's too late, give your life to Jesus!
Psalm 40:1-3 It's only those who God answers can sing new songs. If you're yet to surrender to Jesus, it's not late for you: please come to Jesus to receive all the packages He has for you.
Psalms 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Man was created by God to sing. Declare this with me: “I will bless the Lord at all times, God praise shall continually be in my mouth.” This is why we have songs for virtually every occasion. The truth is if you listen to the song a man is singing, you can guess what he's going through. If you want to draw God near, sing His praise. Jeremiah 17:26, Jobs 19:25, no matter what you situation maybe, you can sing your way through Habakkuk 3:17-19. It doesn't matter what is happening, praise Him
HOW TO PRAISE GOD
1. Praise God with your mouth. When you are complaining and murmuring, you are not praising Psalms 89:1
It is only the humble that know how to praise God.
I will sing unto the Lord
A joyful song
I will praise His name
For the Lord is good
It is only those who knows how far God has taken them that know how to praise God
2. Praise with your hands. Psalm 134:1-3 When you lift your hands in surrender to God , no one dares hurt you. When you lift your hands to God, He looks down from heaven and carries you in His mighty hands. Psalms 47:1 clapping your hands to God means putting your enemy and challenges in between your hands and jamming the hands together. Isaiah 53:12 Even trees clap, clapping to Jesus means you'll cooperate with Him.
3. Praise with your legs “Bowing your knees means admitting that God is superior” Genesis 41, Psalms 95:6.
Praise with your legs “Dancing” Dancing to God means you're telling Him that He's your Owner and He owns you Exodus 15:21, 2 Sam 6:14-end. Psalms 149:1-3, Psalms 150:4
We are singing unto the Lord
Dancing unto Halleluyah
4. You can praise Him with your whole body. Revelation 4:10-11 How can you praise God with your whole body? By lying prostrate before Him. When you lie prostrate before the Almighty God, you are saying there is nothing I have that is not for you.
Rewards Of Praising God.
2. Earth shaking miracles. Acts 16:25-34
Oba mimo gba aso iya lara mi o, gba aso iya, mi o faso iya bora mo, gba so iya.”
“The Almighty God has taken the garment of suffering away and I won't be wearing it again.”
3. You get Open doors
4. Enemies become servants
5. Enemies are silenced
6. You get a blank cheque, 2 chronicle 1:6-10
The Lord said I should tell someone tonight, I will have mercy on You
Saturday, 4 May 2019
- Peace with God Psalm 7:11 God is angry with the sinner every day. Proverbs 16:4 the wicked is made reserved for the day of evil..." Romans 5:1 we have peace with God through Jesus Christ. Until then God is angry with you on a daily basis.
- Peace in God John 16:33 if you are in Christ you have peace. If a man is not in Christ and you hear the news all over the world, you will be scared. But those of us in Christ, we have peace in God. Jesus Himself said in John 14:27 that this peace is uncommon
- Peace of God. Philippians 4:7 this type of peace keeps you stable despite all external signals.

Genesis 37:3-11 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.
And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.
And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.
And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:
For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.
And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.
Vs 18-20 - No matter what the enemy does, the counsel of God will stand.

Text: Mark 5:25 - 34
And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
You can overcome failure. Colossians 1:27 - You can overcome Hopelessness.

For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

You cannot shine without the light
You cannot get light from Satan, is called the king of darkness
Jesus is light - John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
Mathew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid - Jesus decree we are the light of the world.
Isaiah 42:6-7 - Jesus is calling you out of Darkness
Micah 7:8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me - The fault is yours, if you die in darkness - Altar Call: come into light and surrender your life to Him, If you have a desire to come to Jesus then that is the voice of God, the Holy Spirit, calling you to Him, believe and give your life to Jesus Christ. You can begin a new life in Christ now
Arise! Means different things to different people depending on the position where you are.
Arise of Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. Is not an advice nor a plea but a command from God.

Sleeping is motion without progress - Proverbs 26:14 As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed
Sleeping means unfulfilled dreams - Isaiah 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

Topic: Successful Parenting
Memory Verse: “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” – Ephesians 6:4
Bible Passage: 1 Samuel 2:12-17, 29-30 KJV
1 Samuel 2:12-17:
12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD.
13 And the priests’ custom with the people was, that, when any man offered sacrifice, the priest’s servant came, while the flesh was in seething, with a fleshhook of three teeth in his hand;
14 And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did in Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came thither.
15 Also before they burnt the fat, the priest’s servant came, and said to the man that sacrificed, Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw.
16 And if any man said unto him, Let them not fail to burn the fat presently, and then take as much as thy soul desireth; then he would answer him, Nay; but thou shalt give it me now: and if not, I will take it by force.
17 Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD: for men abhorred the offering of the LORD.
1 Samuel 2:29-30:
29 Wherefore kick ye at my sacrifice and at mine offering, which I have commanded in my habitation; and honourest thy sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the chiefest of all the offerings of Israel my people?
30 Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.
Parents have the duty to raise their children in love. God expects parents to bring up children who will love Him, live for Him and make positive impacts I’m the world. Deut. 6:5-7. While there are different styles of parenting in the world, believers should note that successful parenting is achievable.
Different parenting styles
God’s style of parenting
DIFFERENT PARENTING STYLES
PARENTING LOVE DISCIPLINE
1. Permissive High Fearful
2. Uninvolved Low Low
3. Authoritarian Low High
4. Influential High High
1. Permissive Fearful
2. Uninvolved Forsaken
3. Authoritarian. Fighting
4. Influential Friendly
The Permissive Parents:
This types of parents may give verbal comments to their children, but will take little or no action to correct them when they misbehave. Such parents usually equate discipline with meanness. They give in to most of the desires of their children. Eli, the priest, and Samson’s parents are biblical examples of permissive parents. (1 Sam. 2:12-17: 29-30; Judges 13:1-2; 14:1-3).
The Uninvolved Parents:
Such parents are self-oriented and they neglect their responsibilities. They have little or no time to attend to their children but rather pursue other concerns of life like career, business, ministry, pleasure etc. They show little or no concern for well-being of their children and hardly communicate with them. King David and Samuels were examples. (1King 1:5-6; 2Sam. 2:14:28; 1Sam. 8:1-5)
The Authoritarianism Parents
They run home with authority (iron fist) Children in such home have no voice or input whatsoever. That are “to be seen and not to be heard”. An authoritarian parent will use anger and harsh discipline to keep control. This behaviour may frustrate or causes child to lose heart and lack self-esteem. (Col. 3:21)
King Saul was an example. (1 Sam. 20:30).
The Influential Parents
The parents combine love and discipline without compromising either. They have clear boundaries but also very loving.
Children brought up in such homes are usually happy capable and successful. Mordecai, the adoptive parent of Esther. (Esther 2:1-10), Timothy’s mother and grandmother (2Tim.1:5-7; 3:14-15) are examples of influential parents in the bible.
GOD’S STYLE OF PARENTING
God, as the father of all, has clearly shown us the example of how to successfully raise our children. We need to follow in His footsteps. The Father loves and wants us to be involved with His children (Jer. 31:3; John 15:15; 16:27). He communicates clear instructions for us to follow(Pro. 4:3-4).
He forgives and show mercy when we fail(Heb. 8:12). He disciplines and corrects us when we disobey and rebel against Him(Pro. 3:12; Heb.12:7).
The Father models the truth (John 13:15) He encourages and comforts us. (1Thess. 2:11-12). He protects us from harm. (Heb. 11:23). He provides for His children. (Ps. 78: 23-25; 2Cor. 12:14).
Parents need to be careful not to either be extremely legalistic or
permissive. God’s pattern of parenting is balanced by His love, affirmation and grace.
Explain two parenting styles.
What lessons can we learn from God’s style?
