December 2017 Theme – Timely Delivery

Timely can be defined as “Coming early or at the right time; appropriate or adapted to the times or the occasion. It can also mean something occurring at a suitable or opportune time”.

Delivery, on the other hand, can mean “The act of conveying or delivering; something delivered as a shipment or package; the act of transferring to another; the act of giving birth; the act or manner of speaking or singing; or the act of releasing or rescuing”.

In 2 Kings 4:8-17, it was brought to the attention of Prophet Elisha that the Shunemite woman who had shown him great honour and care was barren; so Elisha prophesied that the woman would have a son before a year’s time. Even though the woman did not believe or put her mind to the saying; the bible says the saying of Elisha came to pass within the stipulated time.

It is good enough that what the woman had been expecting and have lost hope actually happened, but better so is that the fact that the saying happened at the stipulated time or appropriate time.

In this month of December, God is assuring us that His prophecies, promises and words for our lives in the current year shall be timely delivered and occur at a suitable and opportune time. That no jot of His words concerning us shall be late nor fail to happen. May we all enjoy this timely transfer or delivery in Jesus name.

November 2017 Theme – Grace and Peace Multiplied

Grace can be defined as an unmerited Divine assistance given unto man for sanctification or regeneration. It is a spontaneous (generous, free, totally unexpected and undeserved) gift from God, which takes the form of Divine favour, love, clemency, and a share in the Divine life of God.
Peace can be defined as freedom from disturbance, a state or period in which there is no war or in which war has ended. Both grace and peace are virtues and blessings that come from God. Jehovah is the Giver of all grace (I Peter 5:10); and He is also the Giver of true and lasting peace (Heb. 13:10).

God told Moses that it was His prerogative to decide who He wants to be gracious unto or to show mercy. It happened that God showed Moses special grace and granted him peace in the course of his life and ministry (Exodus 33:12-2). Moses led over two million people through the desert, in difficult terrains for forty years, whenever he was faced with difficulty, God always showed up for him.

Despite the kind of grace and peace Moses enjoyed, Joshua received a multiplied version, nothing and no one was able to withstand Joshua in his lifetime (Joshua 1:5; 24:31).

Again, David was able to enjoy the grace and peace of God, despite the wars and persecution he faced. He was still gathered peacefully to his ancestors in death. However, Solomon was privilege to enjoy grace and peace multiplied, despite the way he was born (I Chro. 22:9).

God has granted us special grace and peace from the inception of this year; He is however saying that for the remaining days of this year, His grace and peace will be made multiplied unto us. May these be our portion in Jesus name. Amen!

October 2017 Theme – The Uncommon Inheritance

Inheritance can be defined as “the act of inheriting property; the reception of genetic qualities by transmission from parents to offspring; the acquisition of a possession, condition, or trait from past generations”. Uncommon on the other hand can be defined as “out of the ordinary; unusual; rare; extraordinary; unconventional; unfamiliar”; etc.

Inheritance is not a new concept. It has been in existence for many generations, it is very common. When people die, they bequeath their estates (houses, cars, investments, cash and other material possessions) to relatives, friends, helpers, charities and even pets. It’s nothing new or strange.

However, there are few people in life who are privilege to be recipient of ‘uncommon inheritance’. Such inheritance can range from a good name (Sons of Rechab); notable feats done by a family member (House of David); evidential favour of God (The Levites); generational covenant of God (Abraham descendants); etc.
In Gen. 12:1-4, God told Abraham that in him will all the nation of the earth be blessed. Since Abraham was not to live on earth forever, it means that blessing must pass through his genealogy. Interestingly Abraham had no child at this stage. In Gen. 22:15-18, God again reiterated this blessing on Abraham, by this time, he already had two sons – Ishmael and Isaac.

Later on, Abraham had another wife and concubines who bore him more sons. But before Abraham died, he called all his sons to himself and share his estates to them as gifts, but unto Isaac, he gave his all – the blessing of the covenant, i.e. uncommon inheritance (Gen. 25:1-6, 11). No wonder, Jesus – the blessing to all Nations of the world had to come through the linage of Isaac and not through any of the other sons.

In this month of October and beyond, God’s word to our Assembly is that we shall enjoy uncommon inheritance inherent in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Blessings pertaining to dominion, multiplication, fruitfulness, abundance, supremacy, overflowing joy, sound health, victory, etc shall be ours in Jesus name
