The power of God in His word.

GOD’S POWER
{Jesus Christ; the Power and Wisdom of God Almighty}
3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the Divine Nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:3-8)

GOD’S POWER. Disciples of Jesus were called Christians first at Antioch (Acts 11:26)

………BIBLE………………
 It reveals God’s nature
 Supernatural powers
 His names
 His promises for mankind
 His purpose and plan/will for mankind
 Shows God’s principles for eternal life
 How he wants us (man) to build relationship with him (our Creator, the LORD & Everlasting God)
 Shows us how to develop our faith in Him
 How to use God’s promises in our daily prayers.

(Numbers 16:32-35).
Korah,Dathan, Abiram and other 250 people of Israel rose against Moses and Aaron due to envy. And God was angry about them and dealt with them. & their household. Spiritual growth is the process of replacing lies with truth. The Bible is God’s word that has that truth. It is written; Man shall live by every word of God: {Luke 4:4, Deut. 8:3, Matt. 4:4}.

When God speaks things change-everything-around us.
God’s word; Generates life, creates change, creates faith, frightens the devil, causes miracles, heals hurts, build character, transforms circumstance, impart joy, overcome temptation and enemies, releases power, cleanse our mind, sanctify us, infuse hope, brings things into being and secure our future.
And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word (Numbers 14:20

To be healthy disciple of Jesus, always feed on God’s word; it must be our first priority. How:
1. Abide (accept its Authority) without doubt but Faith (Believe)
2. Assimilate its truth (fill your mind with it so that Holy Spirit can transform you with its truth).

You can assimilate the Word by;
 Receive it or (Listen to it)
 Read it
 Research it
 Remember it
 Reflect on it (meditation) – focusing on God’s word- Joshua 1:8, Ps. 1:2-3,Ps. 119:16,77,174, Ps. 63:6, Ps.77:7, Ps.4:4, Ps.143:5,Proverbs 4:20-23 ) .

Moses wrote, “Hear, O Israel: the LORD our God is one LORD: and you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words, which I command you this day, shall be in your heart: and you shall teach them diligently unto your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them upon the posts of your house, and on your gates” (Deut. 6:4-9)

(Joshua 1:8) – This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

 Serious reflection on God’s truth is a key to answered prayer and the secret of successful living
 Every miracle of God is repeatable, duplicable, if you meditate upon the word of God.

Benefits of memorizing the Bible verses:
 It will help you resist temptation
 Make wise decisions
 Reduce stress
 Build confidence
 Offer good advice
 Share your faith with others.
Key to memorizing the scripture is by Reviewing Them Aloud Throughout Your Day.

N/B:
The bible says ‘’remember what Christ taught and let his words enrich your lives and make you wise.’’

3. Apply its principles (‘’doers of the word’’): Jesus says ‘’ now you that you know these things you will be blessed if you do them’’- hearing God’s word and practicing it is like a wise man who builds his house on a rock.
Only the word will set us free. {At first – God’s word- will}:
 Exposes our motives
 Points out our faults
 Rebukes our sin
 Expect us to change
Generally, it requires handwork and commitment to abiding in God word. The best way; Always write out an action step as result of reading /studying/reflecting on God’s word. And the action step should;
 Personal (involving you)
 Practical (something you can do)
 Provable (with deadline to do it)

Every application will involve either your relationship to God, others, and personal charater.

Our minds are renewed with the word of God in two ways;
• Feeding upon God’s Word in our private study & meditation – (ponder, speak, study, pray with your heart, imagined it day and night).
• Be taught by spirit-anointed teachers

N/B: ‘’Bible was given to change our lives only to be like Christ’. And was written by the inspiration of GOD. It has several Doors and Windows i.e. Chapters and Verses into the realm of the spirits. It serves as point of contact between God and its word.
You can’t love God unless you know him and you can’t know him without knowing his Word. God revealed himself to Samuel through his Word
(1Samuel 3:21)

(Revelation 1:3) – Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.

The glory of God is in His word that works in us. That is the power of peace
– need to be activated –
 By working with the holy spirit of God
 through mediating upon the word,
 Walking and talking the word (praying).
 Believing the word (faith).
It is just like a scan that scans the realm of the spirit and committing everything in God’s hands (Psalm 8:1-6)
The HOLY Bible (Offensive/Defensive Weapon)
 The Word of God (WORD OF LIFE)
 The Law of Moses and Scriptures of The Prophets
 Written by inspiration of God (2Tim.3:16)
 Have several doors (chapters) & windows (verses) into realms of the Spirit.
 Settled In Heaven Before The World Began – (psalms 119:89)
 Was God Himself – JESUS CHRIST (John1:1)
 Truth of God (the highest level of reality)
 Wisdom and Power of God (1Cor.1:18)
 Spirit and Life
 The Helmet of Salvation (Eph. 6:17)
 Sword of The Spirit (Eph.6:17) (sharper than two-edged sword)
 Shield To Those That Meditate Upon It Day and Night (Proverbs 30:5, Eph.6:16)
 As Fire and Hammer that break rocks into pieces (Jer.23:29)
 Quick, Absolute, Active, Living and Powerful (Heb.4:12)
 Perfect Standard for Christian living – Full of GRACE & TRUTH (John3:14)
 Pure, Eternal food that is able to save the soul
 Contains all the Seeds of faith for human needs (Luke 8:11, phillipians 4:19)
 Only source for Absolute Divine Authority
 Remains Forever (Timeless) (Luke 21:33, Mark 13:31, Num. 23:19, Ezek. 12:28, 1peter 1:23)
N/B:
God Honors His Word More Than He Honors His Name
Because His Name Rests On His Word. His Word Is His Integrity, Personality, Credibility, Power.

 Real Faith is Believing, Acting on God’s Word and then Expecting Miracle. Faith sees the object of prayer as already having been attained. It is seed planted by walking and saying – the word of God- BIBLE..

And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit (Underworld), and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation. And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.
 God the Holy-Spirit (Ghost)
The life giving power of God flows through those who pray and recite the verses of the king often.

Romans 8:14-16
14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba,Father.

16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty {2 cor. 3: 17}.

My spirit abides among you, fear not – (Hagg 2:5)
He wi I shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. (Matthew 3:11) But the Helper, comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. (John 16:13-14). when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”{John 20:22}
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you{Acts-1:8}. God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us {Rom. 5:5,}. Who has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life – {2 Cor.3:6}

Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts. {Zechariah 4:6}.

 All of our spiritual power comes from the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is Christ living within us. He offers us guidance and just the right words when we face various crises. He comforts us. He strengthens us. He administers the special gifts given us for ministry. It is through him that we live as new creations in Christ.

 On the day you began to believe in Jesus, his Spirit took residence within you. And he began the great work that will continue until you die or Christ returns to earth – the power of transforming you into the image of Christ.

How does it work?
 Soaking your hearts and minds in the living word of God (Meditation). There is no substitute whatsoever, no shortcut.

We need to immerse ourselves in the word of God until as much of it as possible is engraved on our hearts. The Holy Spirit within us reveals its truth. He interprets and he applies the message of God to our thoughts and our issues.
As we read or recite the bible verses, we sow them to the spirit and he begins to flow through our being, so that we feel the power and presence of God.

 A genuine ‘’ spiritual chemical reaction’’ takes place when we soak our hearts and minds in the scriptures and let the spirit flow freely through us. Life, health, power and hope surge through us like medicine from heaven itself.
But truly, I am full of power by the spirit of the lord (Micah 3:8).

 The Blood of the LAMB

Blood-Bought Promises for Our Situation Jesus Christ the Mediator of the New Covenant and his blood speaketh better things than the blood of Abel – (Heb. 12:24).
All things are purified with the blood of Jesus Christ and without shedding of blood there is no remission of sins {Heb.9:22,1 Tim. 1:15}
Without the blood we cannot be forgiven {2 peter 3:9, Ezekiel 3:11, psalm 103:12, 1 John 1:9}. Jesus paid the full price on the cross {Eph. 2:13, 10:19, 1 John 1:7}
The blood is applied by faith – the blood of Jesus has great POWER of : {Is. 1:18}
 Redemption,
 Sanctification,
 Reconciliation,
 Cleansing, purification
 Uniting us With GOD The Father,
 Victory Over Satan,
 Healing
 Forgiveness etc.
The pervasive focus of that sanctifying faith is faith in future grace, that is, faith in all that God promises to be for us in Jesus because of what he did for us on the cross. (For what I mean by “sanctifying faith,” see Acts 26:18, as well as 2 Corinthians 5:7 and Galatians 2:20, where the new life of the believer is lived “through faith” or “by faith.”).
In other words, the way we tap into the power of God for the miracle of sin-killing sanctification is by hearing a blood-bought promise of God for our situation, and by believing it, that is, by receiving it and embracing it as a treasure more precious than the pleasures of the temptation in front of us.In other words, as the Holy Spirit awakens and moves through that faith in God’s promise, the power of canceled sin is broken. It is dethroned. It loses its compelling force because, by the Spirit, faith embraces God’s promise as more satisfying.

 Resurrection
(Risen Jesus)
Jesus Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day. (Luke 24:46),

Jesus answered; destroyed this temple and he will build it in 3-days (John 2:19)

Peter denied Jesus 3 times (Luke 22:61)
Pilate appealed (3x)for Jesus to be released

(Luke 23:20-22)
 At the name of Jesus every knee should bow and tongue confess that he is lord (Philippians-2:9-11,

He died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. (2 Corinthians 5:15)

I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Life (Rev. 1:18)

For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
(1 Cor. 15:22) Resurrection Power Imparted Through Action, Not Talk-The kingdom of God is in power (1cor.4:20).
But now Christ is raised from the dead, and has become the first-fruits of those who have fallen asleep.

24. He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.
27. He has put all things under His feet.” (1Cor.15:20, 24,27).
(John 14:19)-Because I live say the lord, ye shall live also. (Proverb 24:16)-For a just man falleth seven times, and rises up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

Affliction shall not rise up the second time (Nahum 1:9). For the wicked shall no more pass through thee, they have completely cut off (Nahum 1:15). Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thou adversaries and all thine enemies shall be cut off (Micah 5:9). All the witchcrafts shall be cut off thine hand and thou shall have no more soothsayers (Micah 5:12)

• Resurrection Power Imparted Through “I Can” –
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13).
If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31)
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. (Luke 10:19).

And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16:17-18)
• Resurrection Power is Given to Us – Through Trials & Suffering ( 2Corinthians 1:7, Philippians 3:8-11

• Victory Through Trials
The road to victory through the application of resurrection power does not lie in complete avoidance of problems (“in this world you will have tribulation”( John 16:33, 2Thess 1:4-10)
• Resurrection Power Imparted Through Grace
And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2Corinthians 12:9-10, Joel 3:10)

• Resurrection Power Not Imparted Through “Thy Will Be Done”
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves (“selfishness”)… having a form of godliness but denying its power… always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. (2Timothy 2:2,5,7) Our focus must be on God’s Will, not on our will: He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” (Matthew 26:39, Gal. 1:3-4)

• Resurrection Power Imparted Through Love
I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Eph. 3:17-19)

Prayer/Fasting
(Isaiah 40:3, Matthew 21:13,
Philippians 1:19 , John 17:1-25,
Mark 11:24-25, James 5:16, Psalm 102:17, Isaiah 56:7, Mark 1:35) Tabernacle prayer:exodus 30:25-30, 40:9-16.

Peter miraculously escaped from the prison through prayer by Angel of the God (Acts 12:5-10).

Jesus went out into mountain to pray and he prayed all night – (Luke 6:12)

Others:
Gen. 32:24,
1Samuel 15:11,
2Samuel 12:16,
Psalm-119:62, 55:17, 134:1,30:5
Acts 16:25,Joel 1:13
Lamentation 2:19

It brings God’s power into action. {Is. 40:3}.
My house shall be called a house of prayer. {Matth. 21:13}.
I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance.

(Jonah 2:1-2,7) Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly,2And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heard my voice. 7When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD:

and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.
(Jonah 3:5,9-10) 5So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. 9Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger that we perish not?

10And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.
(Matthew 6:16-18) – If thou want to fast should do it in secret for God sees everything and will reward us accordingly.

N/B:
There is unseen battle going on in a realm of the spirit that we do not even understand. Spiritual war in other dimensions between God & Satan, good & evil, Angels & demons. When we send our prayer up, there is often a battle over how it is going to be answered. While you are in the waiting room, Satan starts throwing darts at you; The dart of Doubt, Fear, Discouragement, Disappointment, Delay, Depression, Defeat, and Despair. In spiritual realm, there is always a blanket of darkness dense like solid rock.
Evil spirits, human satanic agents, demons, devil, Lucifer, and all his fallen angels usually operate within that average to block Christian’s prayers – (Spiritual Warfare).

“A delay is not a denial” when it occurs, it means God is fighting for you. Keep up praying’’.

3 FORMS OF CHRISTAIN PRAYERS
1. Prayers that appear like smoke, drifts along and vanishes in the air. This type of prayers comes from people who have sin in their lives and that they are not willing to deal with. Their prayer are weak, they are blown away and disappear in the air.
2. Prayers like smoke. It rises upward until it reaches the rock; it can’t break through. Usually, it comes from people who try to purify themselves, but lack Faith as they pray.
3. Prayers Like Smoke Filled With Fire. As it rises upward, it is so hot that when it reaches the rock, the rock begins to melt like wax. It pierces the rock and go through. Here, there is an Open Heaven. Easy flow of prayers to the throne of grace and mercy of the supreme-being; GOD.

Tactics For Effective Prayers. Three secret weapons to used
1. Faith from the word of God. (Eph. 6:16) – Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
2. Bible. (Eph.6:17) – And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
3. Support from God’s people; Church – (Small Group).
(Eph.6:18) – Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. (Hebrews 10:25) – Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

N/B:
True prayer is a communion with the supreme-being; Heavenly Father. It is a solemn act. (Eccl. 5:2) – Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter anything before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.

 Recognize that God’s presence is everywhere – Omnipresent.
 That Jesus is with us in every moment in our daily life. And he listens to us when we pray.

 Baptism/ Confession; Believe
Galatians 3:27
God’s Son Jesus died for us all, and greatest reason for worship ; offering yourself to God, personal surrender, taking your cross, denying yourself,
Yielding your spirit,consecration.

And what you need to do is (Receive and Believe in his name – John 1:12). (1 John 1:8-10) – 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. (Romans 10:4).

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved (Romans 10:9)

Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.
(John 14:12)

 Sacrament
(Holy Communion)
(Matt.26:26-28) – 26And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. 27And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28For this is my blood of the new testament (covenant) which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
(John6:35,51,53) – 35And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
51I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.53Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

 Fire:
Exodus 19:18, 24:17
(Exodus 3:2, 4-6) – The Angel of Lord appeared to Moses in the frame of fire out of the midst of a bush). (1 Kings 18:22-29) – Elijah commanded the fire from heaven to consume the sacrifice).
(1Kings 18:24)-(The God that answereth by fire, let him be God).
(1Kings 18:38) – Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.

His tongue is like a consuming fire (Isaiah 30:27) Our God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29, Deut. 4:24)

Daniel (3:20-29) – Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego delivered from a burning fire.

Gen. 19:23-26 (God destroyed Sodom & Gomorrah with burning Sulphur from heaven)

Exodus 24:17 (the sight of the glory of the lord was like devouring fire –

(Rev.8:7-8) The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

(Rev. 4:5 ) – And out of the throne preceded lightings and thundering and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

 Faith
John 6:11, 16-21
Luke7:7, Luke8:46,
Mark11:22-23
Gal.3:26

Romans 2:11
For there is no respect of persons with God.
Faith is a catalyst that brings the promises of God to realization.
And suddenly they were.  According to your faith be it done to you — Matt 9:29
 But without faith it is impossible to please God – Hebrew 11:16
 The just shall live by faith (Heb.10:38).
 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ (Romans 10:17). Jesus the author and finisher of our faith (Heb. 12:2)
 If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.(Matthew 17:20)
 For nothing will be impossible with God (Luke 1:37)
 (1Tim. 6:12 ) – fight good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life
 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)Heb.10:12

Romans 4:7 -(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who give life to the dead, and called those things which be not as though they were.

‘’Faith is the only currency God understands’’
Faith says;
 The word of God says it,
 I believe it,
 And I have it now, even though it may not be seen in the natural. But because God promised it (Heb.11:1)

N/B:
God never responds to anything but faith. Your faith commits God to get involved in your situation to deliver your victory.
Faith connects you to the anointing, and the anointing will remove every burden and destroy every yoke – yokes of lack, sickness – nothing can withstand the anointing. You’ll begin to see the unseen reality – the heavenly reservoir of blessings that God has stored up for you.
Putting your faith into work converts your humanity into divinity to manifest God’s supernatural abilities.

 Staff/Mantle
(Exodus 14:15-16, 21-22. 17: 5-6, 11-12, 8-14. 4:2-4) – The red sea divided.

(Numbers 20:7-8,11-12) (Exodus 4:3-4) – Moses casted his staff on the ground and it turned to snake as commanded by God.
(Exod.4:17) And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do signs.(4:20) Moses took the rod of God in his hand.
(Exodus7:19) And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to
them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock TWICE: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also. And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.

(Exodus 7:12) – Aaron’s rod swallowed the Pharoahs’s magician’s rods.
(2Kings 2:9, 11-14) Elisha get hold of Elijah’s mantle and his spirit was transferred to him.
( 1 Samuel 16:40) David took his staff in his hand
 Stone
(Serves As The Truth/Witness Between God And Man).
(1Samuel17:32,34-35,37,40,45-50

1Peter2:6-9, Joshua3:5-6,4:4-7)
And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of the LORD. And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the LORD which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God

(Joshua 24:26-27).
(Joshua 4:4-7) – 4Then Joshua called the twelve men, whom he had prepared of the children of Israel, out of every tribe a man: 5And Joshua said unto them, Pass over before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of Jordan, and take you up every man of you a stone upon his shoulder, according unto the number of the tribes of the children of Israel: 6That this may be a sign among you, that when your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean ye by these stones?

7Then ye shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it passed over Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel forever
(1Samuel 16: 50) – So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine (Goliath), and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David. (1Kings 18:31) – And Elijah took twelve

stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name. .(1 Samuel17:47) – The LORD saved not with sword and spear.
 Water:
John 1:34, 4:14
Matthew 3:16-17

I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleanness’s, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.(Ezekiel 36:25-27),

And Elisha went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death of barren land.(2 kings 2:21).

(Gen. 7:12,20-24) – God destroyed the first earth with flood of water and saved Noah and his household in the Ark.

Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syrian- a leper- was asked to dipped himself (7times) in River Jordan by Prophet Elisha and after he had done it, his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a child and he was clean.
 Anointing Oil:
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. (Acts 10:38)

(1Samuel 16:13) – Samuel anointed David with Oil and the Spirit of the Lord was upon Him (1 Chronicles 16:22) – Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm. (Exodus 30:25-29) – ‘’God commanded Moses to anoint His Temple and everything therein with Holy anointing oil- whosoever touches it becomes Holy’’.
There are two main sorts of ‘anointing’:
• Spiritual Anointing with God’s Spirit and
• Physical Anointing with Oil.
 Dry Bones:
(Ezekiel 37:4-14) – 4Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
5Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: 6And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

7So I Ezekiel prophesied as commanded by God: the dried bones came back to life and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.11Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
12Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

13And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
14And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

THE ARK OF THE COVENANT ;
 God’s earthly throne
 Divine presence of God
 Holy tabernacle
 Precious & sacred object
 God’s supreme power
.
Joshua and the twelve tribes of children of Israel while crossing river Jordan to the promised land carried the ark of the covenant and place on the river it stopped flowing until all have passed over (Joshua 4:6-7)
(2Samuel 6:6-7) – Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark.
(2Samuel 6: 11) – And the ark of the LORD continued in the house of Obededom the Gittite three months: and the LORD blessed Obededom, and all his household.(2Samuel 16:16) – And as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, Michal Saul’s daughter, David’s wife looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart. 23Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child (barren) unto the day of her death.
 Praises:
“Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; And to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God” (Psalms 50:23).

“…when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated” (2 Chron. 20:22)

Biblical Expression of Praise Declaring of thanks -(Heb.13:15)
Clapping hands and shouting -(Psalms 47:1) Musical instruments and dancing – (psalm 150:4) Singing praise song – (Psalms 9:11)
Psalms, hymns, & spiritual songs – (Eph. 5:19-20)
Making a joyful noise – (Psalms 98:4) By lifting our hands -(Psalms 134:2)
By being still (Psalms 4:3-5, 46:10)

By being loud (Psalms 33:3, 95:1-6)
(Jonah 2:9) – But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed.

Salvation is of the LORD.
Don’t let salvation remain a vague, distant outcome. Let it be the daily deliverances from sin. This is our salvation — salvation from sin. So daily produce salvation from sinning.

Act your deliverance. Act your victory. Act your dethroning and killing of sin. Act your deliverance from anger, resentment, fear of man, discouragement, self-pity, self-promotion, hardness, envy, moodiness, sulking, indifference to suffering, laziness, boredom, passiveness, lack of praising others, lack of joy in Jesus, and more.

All these need daily killing of sins.
(2Samuel 6:14-16) – King David brings back the ark of God from the house of Obededom with shouting, sound of trumpet, leaping and dancing before the Lord.
(Jonah 2:9) – But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD. Oh sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. (Psalms 98:1)
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.

Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.Humble yourselves in the sight of Lord, and he will lift you up.

(James 4:7-8, 10). (2cor. 5:17) – new creature in Christ.

N/B:
The ultimate goal of the universe is to show the glory of God.
And it signifies:
 The essence of His Nature
 The weight of His Importance
 The radiance of His Splendor
 The demonstration of His Power
 The atmosphere of His Presence.

We are commanded to Recognize, Honor, Declare, Praise, Reflect, and Live for his glory. Refusing to bring God glory is prideful rebellion and it is the sin that caused Satan’s fall and ours too. But thank God for Christ Salvation made us becomes Righteousness of God and our sins forgiven. God is in Christ and we are in Christ and He lives in us. If He is for us who will be against us.
(Acts 16:16, 18, 25-26;) Paul cast out spirit of divination from a girl in the name of Jesus Christ – immediately, it was so.( And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

The Bible says that God inhabits in the praises of His people (Psalms 22:3). In other words, God “dwells” in the atmosphere of His praise. This means that praise is not merely a reaction from coming into His presence –

Praise is a vehicle of faith which brings us into the presence and power of God! Praise and worship is the “gate-pass” which allows us to enter the sacredness of His glory. The psalmist writes, “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name” (Psalms 100:4)

“I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalms 34:1).

Praise is an expression of faith, and a declaration of victory! It declares that we believe God is with us and is in control of the outcome of all our circumstances (Romans 8:28).
Praise is a “sacrifice,” something that we offer to God sacrificially, not just because we feel like it, but because we believe in Him and wish to please Him. “Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name” (Hebrews 13:15).
 Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. (Habakkuk 3:17–18)

 Thanksgiving helps us put away foolish talk and coarse joking (Ephesians 5:4). Above all, rejoicing helps us see reality in eternal terms—filled with the goodness of God (1Timothy 4:4).

God responds to a grateful heart, and our gratitude overflows to God’s glory (2 Corinthians 4:15).
 MIRIAM; sister to Aaron and Moses was a prophetess, a worship leader , who encourages, comforts and strengthens the community and leading God’s people with Moses in MUSIC & DANCE after the Egyptians are finally defeated in the Red Sea. Exodus 2:1-10,15:20-21, 1cor14:3
 Sacrifice/
Offering/
Cross
Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross not only paid the penalty for our sins, but gave him power and authority over death, the devil & the entire earth: We get a purpose for living and we are promised a future in heaven – Jesus stretched his arms wide open on the cross‘’ saying I love you this much’’

God cancels our sins at the cross through faith alone, so that we can then conquer our sins by the Holy Spirit.

“He breaks the power of canceled sin”.
The cross cancels sins for all who believe on Jesus. Then on the basis of that cancellation of our sins, God breaks the power of our actual sinning “He cancels the guilt of conquered sins.” No, first the cancellation. Then the conquering.

Paul says in Romans 6:5, “We have been united with [Christ] in a death like his.” That’s how our sins were
Canceled. When Christ died, we died (2 Corinthains 5:14). He suffered the condemnation for our sins (Romans 8:3), and by union with him through faith, our sins are canceled.

They are already punished, condemned.
Now, dethrone it. Break the power of canceled sin. So the death of Christ in our place is always foundational for our defeat of sin.
(Heb. 10:10) I have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Christ Jesus once for all.
The Cross:
purifies us – (I John 1:9)
Cleanses our consciences – (Heb.9:14)
Saves us from the wrath of God – (Rom.5:9)
Cross the power of God to us who are being saved (1Cor.. 1:18)
Grants eternal life – (John.6:54)
Forgives our sins – (Jere.31:34)
Gave us Victory over Satan and all his works.

(Gen.8:20-21) – Noah offered burnt offerings to the lord
(Deut.12:6) – Thou shall bring the burnt offerings & sacrifice & tithes, your vows and free-will offerings and harvest unto the lord).

7 When Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the temple.

4 Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the LORD. 5 King Solomon offered a sacrifice twenty-two thousand bulls and one hundred and twenty thousand sheep.

12 Then the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him: I “I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. 13 When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people,1
(2 chronicle7:14) If My people who are called by My name
will humble themselves, and
pray and seek My face,
and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin
and heal their land.
Do not be sad for my joy is your strength – (Nehemiah 8:10)
I am full of mercy and grace and I overflow with love – (Psalm 103:8)

The basis for our conquering sin
Is always Christ’s canceling sin?.
So now we find ourselves loved by God, accepted, adopted into his family, forgiven for all our sins, and justified all because of Christ.

In this condition of profound security and assurance, the Bible says to us, Pursue “the holiness without which no one will see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14).

 Thundering/
Lighting
Exodus 19:16, 20:18

 TREE

 Wind/Fish:
(Jonah was swallowed by a big fish why trying to hide from God from Nineveh he sent him to Tarshish)
(Gen. 1: 3 -4) – 3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. ( John 8:12) – Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followed me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. ( John 1:4-5) – In him (Jesus) was life; and the life was the light of men.5And the light shined in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
(Exodus 15:23-25) – Moses cast a TREE into bitter water and it become sweet.
 Handkerchiefs or Aprons wonders by Paul
(Acts 19:11-12)

(Jonah 1:4, 15-17, 2:10) – But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.15So they look up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging.16Then the men feared the LORD exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto the LORD, and made vows.17Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. (2:10) And the LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.

FAILURE AND MERCY OF GOD
We are imperfect people living in an imperfect and broken world and failures are all certain. Sometimes we experienced failure in marriages, career, relationships, financial, business etc. everybody is disabled in any of the above failures.
Two types of Biblical failures
1. Betrayer (Traitor) due to envy.
 Judas

Jesus Christ  Peter (the rock)
 Betrayed Jesus
 Rejected the mercy of God
 Killed himself
 Breakdown
 Gave up (lost hope)
 Live in commendation
 Ended up taking his life
 Denied Jesus
 Accepted the mercy of God
 Become the leader of the church and holds the keys of the kingdom of heaven
 Breakthrough
 Look up (hopeful)
 Live in celebration
 Living his life on purpose
2. Denial.

(2 Timothy 1:9) – God saved us, called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.
Note: One major barrier from living a purposeful life is Envy/pride. It is a hidden sin.

10th commandment; thou shall not envy.
Envy/pride denies us our uniqueness, divides our attention (Matt.6:24, Luke 9:62), waste our time and energy – (Eccl.6:4) and leads to every other sins – (James 3:16). Envy is an insult to God. It is an act of comparing, idolater (1Cor.10:7), low self-esteem.
Causes of Personal Failures
 Overestimate of our strength (over confidence) – 1Cor.10:12, Matthew 26:69-75
 Fear of disapproval of others, fear of rejection – 2Timothy 1:7-9
Swearing during failure is a sign of weakness, fear, shame, coward, frustration, deserted, depression (1Cor.13:6-7, James 3:5-6,8,10,18)
(2Timothy 1:7) – for God hath not given us the spirit of fear but of Power, Love & Sound Mind. (1 John 4:18) – My perfect love will banish fear from your heart.
 Acting without thinking/talking without thinking – Proverbs 25:28.

Principles To Recover From Failures
o Grieve (weep bitterly) – feel the pain, learn the lesson, push forward, forget the past and accept the mercy and grace of God. Accepting the mercy of God is a key to your Healing & Recovering – (Matthew 26:75, psalms 51, 1 peter 1:3-25, 5:6-8)
o Manage your emotions
o Do not isolate yourself. You need the support of a small group, your loved ones, family, spouse (John 20:19)
o Cast all your anxiety upon God, for he cares for you – ( 1 Peter 5:7)

WHAT JESUS DOES WHEN WE FAIL
 He isn’t shock by our failure/weakness
 He prays for us (Intercession) – Heb.7:25
 He believes in us -(2Timoth2:13,Proverbs 24: 16)
 He shows us mercy (John 21)
 He loves us daily – (Lamentations3:22-23, Eph. 2:4, Romans 8:37)

SIX REASONS WHY YOU should TRUST GOD.

1. HE KNOWS YOU BY NAME {ISAIAH 43:1}
2. HE THINKS ABOUT YOU {PSALM 139:17}
3. HE WILL FIGHT FOR YOU {EXODUS 14:14}
4. HE IS ALWAYS WITH YOU {MATTHEW 28:20}
5. HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU {JEREMIAH 29:11}
6. HE IS YOUR REFUGE {PSALM 62:6-8}

A Divine Miracle in Us
Until that day, we are in the grand process called sanctification, or glorification, or becoming holy as God is holy.
He works the miracle of sanctification; you act the miracle. He produces it; you perform it.
If you don’t use your will to act the miracle, there is no miracle. God’s sovereign enablement of holiness does not contradict the act of duty; it creates it.

 When God:
 Opens the eyes of the blind, it is the blind who see.
 Gives strength to withered legs, it is the lame who do the walking.
 Touches the ears of the deaf, it is the deaf who do the hearing.
 Calls Lazarus from the grave, it is Lazarus who walks out on his own two feet.
 Changes zacchaeus’s heart, it is zacchaeus who gives back fourfold what he had stolen.
 Fills you with compassion, it is you who exercises your will to feed the hungry and clothe the naked and visit the prison and take in the refugee.

 Gives you merciful humility, it is you who turns the other cheek.
 Inclines your heart to his word, it is you who gets out of bed early in the morning to read your bible.
 Gives you courage and love, it is you who shares Christ with your neighbor.
 Puts a generous spirit in you, you are the one who writes the extra check for the ministry of the church.
 Gives you a patient confidence in his timing, you are the one who drives the speed limit and stops at stop signs and buckles your seatbelt.
 Makes you content with his provision, it’s you who tells the truth on your tax returns.
 Makes his glory more satisfying than lust, it’s you who turns away from pornography.
 Gives you a sweet satisfaction in your future reward, you are the one who blesses your enemies and does not curse them.

God authors the miracle of sanctification and you act the miracle.

Heavenly Father,
In the name of Jesus Christ and by the blood of the lamb, any evil taskmasters set over me by the enemies (Pharaoh)to afflict and made my life bitter (exod.1:11,14),scatter by fire. For my God have heard my cry for help, he knows my sorrows (exod.3:7) I AM THAT I AM, JEHOVAH is His name (exod.3:14), the God of the Hebrews.
And the finger of the good LORD of Moses is writing a new story for my life and he has appointed a set time for my breakthrough. Thank you Lord Jesus for setting me free.
Oh Lord, righteous one of Israel, let every taskmasters set over me by the enemies called on me for forgiveness and turn to you God Almighty else inflict them with stroke, paralyze and let them die after (10 days) as happened to Nabal
In Jesus Name.
Prayer that Rout Demons
Oh Lord, my God, God of the Hebrews, Father in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Lord inflict and infest my enemies in full force your terrible plague as your did to pharaoh and his people (Egyptians).
And win glory for yourself.

HIGH PAYING JOBS THAT DON’T REQUIRE A COLLEGE DEGREE.

High Paying Jobs That Don’t Require a College Degree

30.09.2016

College isn’t for everyone. Some people simply can’t afford it after a few years of paying tuition, or they discover that they don’t exactly “belong” there. But dropping out of college isn’t the end of the world, especially since a degree isn’t necessarily a

requirement in order to succeed financially. In fact, there’s a handful of high-paying jobs that don’t require a college degree.

Services Sales Representative

Whatever service you’re providing, you need someone who can sell it. So good sales representatives should seldom lack for opportunities. The service industries with the most sales rep jobs are computer systems design, wired telecommunications carriers, and management, scientific and technical consulting.

The entry-level education requirement is typically just a high school diploma, but a bachelor’s degree can give you a leg up on the competition. The specific skills and knowledge that would help you snag this kind of job depends on the industry. But generally, coursework and an understanding of business, finance and economics, as well as public speaking and communications, can also boost your career prospects.

Small Business Owner

If you have the desire and are able to start your own business, and get through the difficult early stages (and, importantly, you have a valuable product or service to offer the market), this could be a really nice option for you. Being your own boss means that you not only can work without a college degree, but also have a lot additional benefits like setting your own hours, write off many expenses on your taxes, and make as much as you possibly can. The sky’s the limit.

Construction Manager

If you like working construction, you don’t have to worry about switching careers to something better. Construction companies often promote from within. If you truly like the work, you could consider sticking it out and working your way up the ranks to management.

Transportation, Storage, and Distribution Managers

Those who have a knack for administration and management jobs can try their hand at being a transport manager. This job entails keeping on tabs on transport policies implemented by the government, as well as planning, directing, and coordinating transportation policies.

Network/IT Manager

As long as you’re up on the latest technology and talented with gadgets, networks, and computers, you can excel in this field. The work involves dealing with wide area network (WAN) and local area network (LAN), and the associated analysis, testing, troubleshooting, and network evaluation.

Hotel Executive Chef

Obviously, you’ll have to start at the bottom and work your way up. You’ll have to deal with impossibly long and grueling hours. But if you have the passion and the talent and can get to the executive level, you can easily make six figures.

Makeup Artist

The people whose job is to make sure theatrical and performance artists look perfect for the role also bring home big slabs of bacon. As long as the makeup artists are skilled in applying makeup so that performers become the character their script requires, they have a shot at the job.

Computer User Support Specialist

Techies who are not academically inclined don’t necessarily have to count themselves out of the sizzling IT job market. Although applicants with college degrees are still preferred, what matters most is that you have the desired skills—no matter how you attained them.

Computer user support specialists, who help coworkers and clients fix their PC and Mac problems from setup to shutdown, can often land jobs without a college degree. Instead, many employers look to hire help-desk technicians, as they’re also called, who have certifications proving their skills. For example, prep for the exam with in-person, one-day classes or online courses that can take as little as five hours to complete.

Pilot

If all of these jobs sound good, but just not glamorous enough for you (and you have perfect eyesight), then you might consider becoming a pilot. However, being a commercial pilot will require on-the-job training where you will learn everything about flying and navigating planes and helicopters, as well as rescue operations and firefighting.

If you’re willing to work hard and dedicate yourself to excellence in your chosen career, then you can easily make six figures without a traditional degree.
