We saw different levels of authority established by God for the purpose of order, calling and principles. We cannot have two leading commanders in the same boat. Taking the case of government and citizens, many people and even Christians have been taught and led to think that the government is evil and that we should pray against the government and against those in government. This idea has also been promoted along the years because some government leaders have been antagonistic to the church and her missions. But, let's have a different view today through God's word.
Today, we are studying curses inflicted by humans. This cause is the most rampant cause of curses today because many people out of anger, frustration, disappointment and other circumstances, use their mouth to utter negative and evil words to others.
A curse is a negative force most often transmitted through negative words that predisposes its victim to unfortunate circumstances or results. When you observe one of these in your life or in your family, it can be an indication of a curse. Please, read the verses in Deuteronomy 28. A curse is like a long evil and invisible arm that pulls its victim backward, downward. A curse is a dark shadow blocking the God’s sunlight in the victim's life. The good news is that in Christ Jesus, God has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.
The Bible contains universal truths and revelations that can help us interpret times and seasons of our lives. More importantly, it helps us to know what we can do when we face hardships. God has written down what a man can do to move from a condition of curses to a life of blessings. You can choose a life of blessings and fulfilment today. The Bible shows us how to do that. Let's begin by seeing what a blessing is. A blessing is...
Hello Someone! God says, He chose you. You were not a mistake neither a coincidence; and besides there is no coincidence in Christ. God chose you even before you were conceived and appointed you for a great task- a task you can only fulfil in Christ Jesus at the right time. When things go well for others and seems bad on your side at the moment, don’t get sad; don’t lose hope.
The next important Covenant in the Bible is the Davidic Covenant. This Covenant was in reference to the Messiah who will come from the lineage of David and reign forever on His throne. That Son is Jesus Christ who again is called Son of David, one of the favorite names of Jesus Christ that appealed to the mercy of God.
There are two main kinds of trauma. One is medical trauma we experience as a result of a physical injury to our bodies. What follows is having to heal from the injury. However, we can also experience another kind of trauma as a result and it is also common.
Beloved God wants you to pay back evil with good, wrong with right and injustice with justice. For if you pay back evil with evil, you display an opposite nature of the Lord (the God of Mercy whose image you reflect); and as well give him no chance to avenge on your behalf.
Dieu est un Dieu de nouvelles choses, de nouveaux commencements, d'une nouvelle vie, d'un nouveau départ. Quand les choses tournent mal, quand la vie va mal, Dieu donne un nouveau départ. Il y a eu un nouveau départ avec Noé et sa famille dans la Genèse à l'époque où le monde était corrompu et les gens étaient mauvais et méchants.
La crainte de Dieu les avait quittés et ils ne considéraient plus les voies de Dieu. Écoutez comment Dieu le dit : "Mais le bœuf connaît son propriétaire et l'âne le berceau de son maître ; Mais Israël ne me connaît pas, mon peuple ne considère pas." Ces animaux sont utilisés pour montrer à quel point Israël était devenu rebelle. Même le bœuf ou l'âne peuvent reconnaître et se soumettre à leurs maîtres, mais ces gens ne connaissaient plus les voies de Dieu.
The good news is that God came to seek for us in the person of Jesus Christ (Luke 19:9-10). Jesus Christ came to fully restore the broken relationship between man and God (John 14:6). All men can regain an intimate fellowship with God as the fellowship that existed in the Garden of Eden. All men have fallen short of the glory of God. So, all men lost intimacy with God. Therefore, for man to regain his original purpose on this earth, he must engage in the discipline of seeking God.
Do you think Israel did not know anything about God? No! The Temple was still in place and some religious activities were still going on in Israel, but these people's hearts have departed from God. The fear of God had departed from them and they did not consider the ways of God anymore. Listen to how God puts it, "But The ox knows its owner and the donkey its master’s crib; But Israel does not know Me, My people do not consider.”
Every assignment produces a vision in its carrier. The vision is always a picture of a desired or preferred future. It is an ideal condition we wish to see happen. And so, we work hard towards bringing it to pass. But sometimes, it doesn't come easily and so fast as we think. Know this, harvest takes time. And depending on the kind of tree, some harvests take longer time. Any farmer knows that you cannot expect the harvest from a coconut tree as that from a corn farm.
Everything God created is an answer to a need or a solution to a problem. Every human is created for an assignment, for reward, for blessing. Children are a blessing. We said yesterday that our assignment is designed by God. Our assignment is also to a particular group of people. We cannot meet all the need of all the people. That will be taking the place of God. In a company, you cannot do everything: you are a guard, secretary, manager at the same time, no!
True Christianity is living by faith in God's Word, where we are forever grateful and giving glory to God, not for what we expect Him to do, but for all He's already done. We should come to realize that there's nothing He hasn't done for us yet. No matter the crises or circumstances we face in life, God's will is that we always maintain an attitude of thankfulness. He says in all things, give thanks, because He knows that you could never be disadvantaged.
We need to understand and appreciate God’s sovereign love for man through the different Covenants He initiated in the history of mankind in order for us to better serve Him. God operates by Covenants. Our text says, Remember the Lord your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant he confirmed to your ancestors with an oath. (Deut. 8:18).
Dating is an avenue towards marriage and that's why it's advisable to date right. Be purposeful with the person you choose to date. Maintain the mindset that the person you are dating or will date is the person you want to marry. Don't go into a relationship because everybody around you are in a relationship. Have the right mindset about dating before going into it. Dating is a means to get to know the other party better because you want to marry the person. People that go into relationships without purpose end up wasting each other's time. And in other to make the relationship work or feel connected to each other, they end up having sex.
When we seek God with all our heart, we normally find Him. Then, after we find Him, we get to know Him and to love Him. But, sometimes Christians behave with God as some married people behave with their partner. Their love to their married partner is just for a moment and they begin to look outside. They are no longer satisfied with their spouses; they become fade up with the person to whom they pledged and vowed faithfulness. Man is naturally an insatiable being. Be watchful.
You are somebody special to God. Those thoughts and feelings are lies from the devil aimed at getting you so down on yourself that you will never experience God's best for your life. They try to make you feel you are "just not good enough" so why would God want to bless you? God does not have one child who is not good enough to receive His love.
In the School of healing or in the ministry of healing, we need to know that there is no barrier on God’s side. When Jesus died on the cross, the veil of the Temple was torn from top to bottom. The Holy of Holiest was then opened to give all men free access to the blessings, graces, mercies and glory of God, (Heb 4: 14-16)
