Soaring On The Wings Of Grace, by Revd. Jonathan Adeboye

Soaring On The Wings Of Grace, by Revd. Jonathan Adeboye

Bible Text: Esther 2:15-17, Isaiah 40:28-31

This month God will set you up, God will lift you up because you will obtain grace like Esther in Jesus name, Amen.

Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of his understanding.

29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

In this month of May the theme is Grace to soar higher but the topic in context I soaring on the wings of grace.

There are several thing grace can do for you. The best thing that grace can do is the salvation of the soul. If you obtain grace in every other parts of life but lose your soul, you have nothing. So it’s important that your soul is saved.

How many of you believe that the level you are at the moment is the best you can ever be? If you believe there are better levels, I pray that you get there in Jesus name but you can only get there by grace. For every member listening or reading this you will experience a lifting courtesy of the Grace of God. In this month, grace will work for you.

The first word is Soar. To soar means to ascend to a level higher than the usual. Whatever your past experiences or the experiences of your family line, I decree upon your life this month you will soar beyond it.

To soar also means moving to greater heights with little apparently efforts. There are many who make efforts and fail. There are many who make great efforts and succeed but with grace; little efforts and you exceed.

For example, a brother was making efforts to achieve a something but was reaching a dead end. After speaking with a man of God, he understood that because there was none like that in his family, he needed grace. There was a spiritual sealing that needed to be broken. I pray for you today, that whatever ancestral curse of spiritual sealing hindering achievements in your life it is broken in Jesus name.

Grace is from the Greek word “Charis”. Grace is the medium through God relates to mankind. The difference between grace in old and New Testament is the measure. In Old Testament there was limited grace but after Jesus came, grace was released unto us in full measure. Thus in the New Testament we received abundance of grace.

The power of Grace

What is grace capable of doing? God delights that we prosper. Psalm 35:27

27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant”.

God has pleasure in the prosperity of everyone not just one person but everyone. That is, when one of his servants is not prospering God is not comfortable.

  1. Genesis 6:7-8. Noah found grace as a result escaped the destruction that befell the people of his generation. The grace of God is contagious. Noah obtained grace and saved 7other people. If it is the head of the family that obtained grace, it spreads, if it is the mother it spreads. I pray you find grace.
  2. Genesis 15:16-19 also told us about how Lot experienced grace and was saved from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
  3. Another man is Joseph. Genesis 34 Joseph experienced grace in the land of Egypt. He went as a slave but because of the grace of God upon his life he became a prime minister. Whatever you are doing now, whether it is a menial job. The grace of God will work for you.
  4. Exodus 27:37. The Lord God gave the people grace such that as the children of Israel were leaving Egypt, whatever they asked they received.
  5. Another example is Esther. Esther was a slave girl; she was an orphan but she found favour in the sight of the King and was honoured by the King as a result of grace.

Esther 2:15-17

5 Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king’s chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. And Esther obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her.

16 So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.

17 And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti”.

I pray for you as you journey through this year, as you soar on the wings of grace, you will be preferred over and above others in Jesus name.

What are the conditions for Soaring on the wings of Grace?

  1. There must be an ongoing relationship with the Elshaddai. Exodus 12:36. The Lord God gave his people, people who have a relationship with him.
  2. There must be godly living. Psalm 84:11. “For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly”
  3. Isaiah 40: 30-31. Learn to wait upon the Lord. Where other people get tired, that will be your starting point in Jesus name.
  4. Humility. Job 22:29 29 When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person. James 4:6 “for he giveth more grace to the humble and resist the proud.
  5. Obedience and service .Job 36 :11 “ if they obey and serve me , they shall spend their days in prosperity …”

If you want grace to work for you, you need to prayerfully decide what you want to do for God. Offer yourself for service, as long as you want prosper and be elevated make up your mind to service.

Ecc. 9:11- “ I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all”. Thank God for people who work really hard but don’t need to go through all the hassle people of the world go through before you make it in life. I pray for the grace of God upon your life, that you will experience maximum results with minimal efforts in Jesus name. Amen.

Unimaginable Progress, by Apostle I.D Lawon

Unimaginable Progress, by Apostle A.D Lawon

Bible Text: Mark 10:46

In that text 8 problems were highlighted but the passage ended with the name of blind Bartimaeus who experienced unimaginable progress.

Vs. 46 …  “And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging”.

From the understanding of the context; Jericho is a deaf and dumb city where nothing goes out and nothing comes in. Some people are at Jericho today, if you have been stagnant, at a plateau where it seems nothing is working for you, you seem not to be making progress, this day you will find the Lord and break free. Jericho was the city the children of Israel got to and the Lord told them to march round the wall to break free. So as you read this and activate the power of God, your barriers will come down in Jesus name.

Vs. 47 “…And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me”.

Faith comes by hearing. Blind Bartimaeus experienced faith because he heard about Jesus. There needs to be continuous hearing. Bartimaeus cried “Jesus, thou son of David have mercy on me”, Vs. 48 many asked him to be quiet but he was persistent. They wanted to hinder what he had to achieve, he had a purpose in life and he knew he wanted his eyes to be open. Don’t be tired of hearing, when you are tired of hearing, faith will no longer come.

Many have a project, working on an assignment, have an objective but because they have been shut out, they stopped. No, Bartimaeus was different; he kept on calling on Jesus because he knew what he wanted. Every lame spirit in your life that is trying to impede your progress you are freed from such bondage in Jesus name. A lot of people think they are running but yet they are crawling. May your eyes be opened to see the wonderful things set aside for you in Jesus name.

And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.

When Jesus heard blind Bartimaeus, Jesus stood still. For your cry today Jesus will stand still. So many people stood in the presence of God, Jesus was in the presence of the multitudes.  But only Bartimaeus made Jesus stand still, only him had a request that made Jesus stand still..  The message at this juncture is that, some people come to church without desire, they just come and go.  Church is like religion to some people, they just come and go but they do not know how to possess their inheritance.

When Jesus called him, the man threw away anything that could hinder him.

When Jesus met with the man he asked him what you want. Not that he doesn’t know he is blind but Jesus still asked. Some people do not know what they want, they do not know why they come to church, may be you just come to worship, you just come because your parents come , you come because your friend invited you. Still what do you want?  When you lack purpose and you come to the opportune time, you may not be able to seize it.  That was what happened to Solomon, he asked for wisdom and the opportune time came and he manifested the power of God by solving the problem.

When God asked Bartimaeus, He didn’t ask for coins, he asked for the unimaginable. May God give you the grace to dream big because that is the limitation of so many people. Activate the violent faith to take old of your inheritance.

God gave me formula for unimaginable progress. Connect to the power source because when man is promising 10% he is promising 3000%. The unimaginable is that which no one can imagine. People will say it is a lie.  Bartimaeus replied “that I may receive my sight” Jesus said “..go your way for you faith has made you whole”.

How do you know you are making progress?

  1. To go forward is to make progress but there are many types of making progress
    1. You may want to go forward but you are not going forward
    2. You may go forward but it has been arrested
    3. You can go forward but it is marginal
    4. You can go forward in an unimaginable manner

So in our journey in life, in our journey in church, in our journey within the family we need unimaginable progress. However, God is the one that makes a difference in the way we make progress.

God is the one that give unimaginable progress but how?

  1. By prophetic insight. That was happened to Bartimaeus, he was brought out of the pack. He was among the multitude but God set him apart. The Bible says “he was by the road side begging, God can bring you from the pit to highest realm of life. Blind Bartimaeus was by the road side and he got the prophetic insight
  2. You have faith planning: Not a normal plan. Bartimaeus heard, he had heard what Jesus had been doing, so he shouted. When you have no plans, what do you want God to bless? You should have a goal, God can restore all that you have lost and he said He will restore
  3. Appointed times: Take advantage of appointed times. Blind Bartimaeus heard and seize upon his time. Seize opportunities and activate appointed times
  4. Violent faith: Bartimaeus had violent faith. Has he cried and shouted “Jesus thou son of David have mercy upon me” they asked him to shut up but he refused. With violent faith, you do not go with the norm; you act abnormal in an extraordinary way. With violent faith, your gaze is upon the Lord to receive an answer. Know what you are looking for and do not be intimidated by the oppressor. I pray that you would not be double minded in Jesus name. Bartimaeus was not double minded
  5. Capitalize on your present assets. In our modern day thinking, capitalize on your present resources. When Bartimaeus said “Jesus thou son of David …” he was capitalizing on what he knew. He knew David was the one that used a stone to kill Goliath. He understood the power behind the actions and he wanted a part in it. So Bartimaeus activated this power by shouting “Jesus thou son of David, have mercy on me…”. God is asking you today what you have. Is that you can sing, you can dance, you can serve people, you can sweep the church floor, you do visitations, you can preach the gospel, you can pray for people? Capitalize on it and see how God will lift you up. A testimony and an unimaginable progress happened to me when I wanted for a visitation some years back. I had a brother who was a full time evangelist but on that day , he was not at the service .After church service we went to his house to find out what was happened. On reaching no one had seen him but they thought he must be inside the house. My driver forced the door open and on getting inside, he was faced down with his hands folded to his chest. My driver and I called his name but he didn’t answer. He seemed lifeless. So we started praying, after praying, the Lord laid it upon my spirit to stretch his hands and when I did; he opened his eyes. I had never seen a miracle like that. Afterwards we took him to the hospital. Bartimaeus capitalize on the fact that he had no money, that no one will shut him down, that the way he used to beg for money he would beg heaven for his breakthrough.
  6. In Luke 11, There are 2 types of prayers that the Jesus talked about from Vs. 1-5 is the “our father ……” from Vs. 6 the Lord talked about a man who was travelling and lodged with his friend who had no food. His friend had to go bang on neighbors’ door to beg for food. In Luke 18, the Lord talked about praying for mercy. It is pleading a case in court. There are times you go to God and you are begging, because something went wrong in your bloodline. Plead your case before God and ask for mercy. You may not be the one that committed the offence but you need mercy to be set free.
  7. A visitation may be what you need to experience the manifestation of the power of God. . Capitalize on what you have; your unimaginable gift will come from what God has given you to do. What you have may be kindness but one day you will break through.
  8. So what do you have today that you can capitalize on to give you unimaginable progress?
  9. Plot your pursuit. Not the way they do it in the world but you read the parable of the sower and plot your pursuit. It says a man went to sow, some fell on good ground, some on thorns …, some yielded 30 folds, some 100 folds. The 30 folds mean 30 times not 30%. So plot your pursuit on this message in Mark 4 and Matthew 13Some people don’t know what they want, you give them prayer request sheet and they write “God bless me “bless you in what? Be specific.
  10. Be consistent and insistent on what God has given you to and what you want God to do for you. For example
  11. You evaluate all that you have done in the past and forecast how you want God to bless you.
  12. The key is consistency and longevity – Jeremiah 17:7&8 – Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit”.

The Bible says picture your life like a tree planted by the streams of water. When you are planted, you are going nowhere; it means no doubt, you are insistent. To be planted by the rivers of water implies you are connected to the source of power 24/7. You do not loose power or source of growth. For example, when I just started my church, there were churches growing all around me but there was no progress. I read about John Wesley that he prayed every day from 4am-8am. I started doing that and I did for 9years. Suddenly my graft turned and I gained unimaginable progress, it is what the mathematicians called exponential growth.

Always activate the turn of events at the end of every month. Wait upon God so that he can teach you the secret things and very month you can experience unimaginable progress. May you experience unimaginable progress this year in Jesus name, Amen.

The Dynamics of GRACE, by Rev Alexander Faranpojo

The Dynamics of GRACE, by Rev Alexander Faranpojo

Bible Text: 2 Corinthians 9:8

Introduction:

You are here for a reason but great meetings do not make great people. It is the decision that emanates from great meetings that make great people. So as you read, I pray you are engineered to make life changing decisions.

The Bible Text is taken from: 2 Corinthians 9:8

“And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity”.

The Bible says “God is able to make all grace ….” This implies grace is not just in one form but many. There are many kinds of grace. Grace to excel, grace to give , grace to love, grace to marry, grace to innovate , grace to lead and so on. Grace is not one sided but some people may have it one sided. For example, some may have the grace to father a child but no grace to be good husbands; some people have grace to be good wives but no grace to mother a child. Some people have grace to be diligent in the organisation they work but no grace to work in the house of God. Still God is able to give “all” grace, it implies we can have all grace.

Grace is important and we need it. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:10

“But by the [remarkable] grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not without effect. In fact, I worked harder than all of the apostles, though it was not I, but the grace of God [His unmerited favor and blessing which was] with me”

Another supporting scripture is Ephesians 2: 8  “For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God;”

We are saved by graced and grace is not something to be used without power. Most people have used and use grace in shallow ways like “I will be at your house by Gods’ grace”. But grace is not a joke neither is it a monologue. Grace is what makes a dummy brilliant; grace is what makes people like you. You can do all things because of grace. Grace makes a worthless man valuable.

Having understood the importance of grace, what then is grace?

Grace is a person. Grace is the Lord Jesus Christ. It cannot be described as a theme without first becoming a Noun. John 1:14-16 depict that  “And the Word (Christ) became flesh, and lived among us; and we [actually] saw His glory, glory as belongs to the [One and] only begotten Son of the Father, [the Son who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, who is] full of grace and truth (absolutely free of deception).15 John testified [repeatedly] about Him and [a]has cried out [testifying officially for the record, with validity and relevance], “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me [b]has a higher rank than I and has priority over me, for He existed before me.’” 16 For out of His fullness [the superabundance of His grace and truth] we have all received grace upon grace [spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing, favor upon favor, and gift heaped upon gift]”.

This text confirms that Jesus is the personality of grace. Outside of Jesus the word “Grace” doesn’t hold water and shouldn’t be used. For practicality, grace is the willingness and ability of God to do. It is the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross. It implies all that God has provided or will ever provide. Grace is Gods’ benevolence. The very best of God to us is grace.

But when do we need Grace?

1. The Bible reports in Heb 4:16 that we need grace in time of need. Grace provides mercy

2. 2 Corinthians 12:6-9 states that we need grace in our weaknesses

3. Roman 6: 1 reports that in sin we need grace. While we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Christ is the grace granted unto us.

4. During difficult moment / infirmities – when things are tough or hard we need grace

5. We need grace to do things. The Bible states in 2 Corinthians 9:8 that God is able to make all grace abound towards us. Also we are able to do all things through Christ (Grace).

Thus life outside of grace is useless. Eph. 2:8-9. We need to understand that we are nothing but for the grace of God. Believers should not celebrate or be boastful about their works but in Gods’ grace (Romans 1: 18-21)

The narrative about God is not popular even within believers. However, the smartest thing God wants you to do is acknowledge him. Wherever you are today is by the grace of God. You are what you are by the grace of God. You would be what you would be by the grace of God. There are so many actions that you have taken that led to success, others have taken that same step but have failed. It is an eyesore and pathetic that some people do no longer have good narratives about God. The point of this message is to ensure that we understand the grace of God upon our lves and be able to use grace continuously not getting stranded. Just like Apple and Samsung bring new innovations; Satan also is innovative and dynamic. As Christians we shouldn’t be too slow for the movement of the Holy spirit, we need to be able to keep up with the tides involving dynamic activity to enjoying Gods’ grace. Christians should no longer be losing battles in any area of their lives.

So how do we work this grace?

Galatians 2:21

By not frustrating the grace of God

By not receive the grace of God in vain – 2 Corinthians 6:1, 1 Corinthians 15:10

Without Christ, grace is of no effect. We need Christ to work this grace. Galatians 5:4

Ephesians 3:20 states that God is “able” and willing to do.

Understanding that God is able to do is one thing and comprehending his willingness to do is another thing. Some people believe God is able but not willing. There is a difference between willingness and ability but we need the collaboration of the two to establish Grace. Heb. 6:17

All that we need has been prepared by God. When we ask for something God would not be running around at that moment in time. Our Angels do that for us. It is high time we stop thinking that God has not prepared a place for us already.

Grace is never activated until we realize God loves us. He loves us enough to give us all things. Secondly, there is need to understand that it takes faith to access the grace of God. Eph. 2:8-9. Grace is greater than faith. It is the teaching of grace that makes us believe and have faith. Thus knowing how to access grace will help to thrive and enjoy Gods’ mercies.

We can access grace through:

Humility: James 4:6

Humility is a critical factor to allow grace. It is a right evaluation of who you are. The Bible says let not a man think of him more highly as he ought to but think of himself in the knowledge of Gods’ word. Job 36:11, Exodus 23.

Prayer is another way to access grace- Let us come boldly to the throne of grace. You cannot be stranded when you pray without ceasing. Heb 4:16.

Grace is sustained by giving. 2 Corinthians 8: 5-7. Give yourself to the Lord first then submit unto the man of God to provoke gracious blessing.

Genesis 27:20

The story of Isaac and his two sons illustrates the impact of giving and giving to man of God. There is something about giving that provokes prophetic grace. There are battles you cannot fight on your own. There are battles that are not very fair to you that only the prophetic blessings that will help you. There are people that prophets subconsciously bless because they smell good. You can provoke blessing continuously with giving. You need to give to enjoy all the grace available from God. You can be hardworking and still financially broke. But grace can help you. Don’t just give when you are happy, give consistently and God will bless you.

Prayers

Favourable Consideration, by Pastor Seyi Oladosu

 

Favourable Consideration, by Pastor Seyi Oladosu

Bible text: Psalm 102: 13 – “You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favour to her; the appointed time has come”.

Somebody’s’ set time has come. A set time is an appointed time that exhibits blessings for you against all odds. An example is a woman I know who was having issues with her stay in the UK. She had been using a lawyer but all to no avail. So she met with me, after a chat, I advised her to change her lawyer and go for a younger lawyer, a woman who looks up to her like a mother. She heeded my advice and after 3 months despite all the challenges there was good news. The case was to appeal a previous judgement against her visa extension, but when the good news came she was given an indefinite leave to remain.

Note that before your set time there you would need hope and be very patient. Any individual who wants to be favoured by God or has been favoured by God is hopeful and patient. An example is my own personal experience, several years ago I married my beautiful wife but she could not conceive for many years. It was like the ability to conceive was by-passing us to all other members of the church, we cried, we prayed, fasted, but nothing happened until an appointed day. It was during one of the Holy Ghost service in London. God spoke through the man of God; the Lord showed compassion to us within that year, my wife conceived, the Lord God Almighty favoured us.

So what does it mean to be favoured?

  1. To be approved of God without qualifying for it. Sometimes we look up to people ahead for favour but only God gives favour. Human beings give based on judgements but only God approval gives the undeserving miracle.

  2. An unfair partiality – When you are favoured, an unfair partiality is released upon you for blessings. E.g I had an experience of the Holy Ghost acquitting a man guilty of a crime. Apparently, the young man had embezzled so much money from a company and was looking at 15 years imprisonment but the Lord favoured him and he was sentenced to 6 months and released after 3 months .

Wherever you are; maybe you have a court case but I decree that God will favour you. Been favoured does not mean you would not go through challenges but note that anytime you are falsely accused when God has acquitted you, it implies your spiritual promotion is near; an example is the life of Joseph who went through different trials and temptation but was still favoured by God.

  1. To be favoured is to have Divine ability – An example is the life of Daniel, He had the unique ability to tell dreams and interpret it. However, the favour of God does not give room for laziness and does not complement mediocrity. You have to be skilled wherever you are, position yourself for elevation and promotion and the favour of God will locate you. Prov. 22: 29 “Seest thou a man diligent in his works, he shall stand before kings and not mean men”. Another example is Mordecai who worked for King Ahasuerus. He worked at the king’s gates but there was a purpose in his heart which was brought into fruition at the appointed time. I implore you, it may be tough initially but you will win. Galatian 6: 9 “Let us not become weary in doing well, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up”.

Many Christians’ heart are fainting these days due to long waiting. If you want favour, hope must arise in your heart every time. There is no maybe with God, it’s either a Yes / No.

  1. To be favoured is to have an unusual value on your life. I know a man, faithful and diligent – he had an unusual value on his life so much more that when he was employed miraculously, he got promoted more than 8 times in 3 years.

  2. To be favoured is to be shown excessive consideration above others. To receive preferential treatment. God has endorsed you and there is divine seal upon your life, therefore do not feel awkward when you are shown favour, embrace it; it is sign you are a child of the kingdom.

In spite of the benefits and wonderful merits of favour, favour has principles.

  1. Principle of diligence: dedication, commitment. Whatever you do, do it well if you are a cleaner, do not be an erratic one.

  2. Be at the right place at the right time – Isaiah 30:21- “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” God wants to bring you to the right place at the right time

  3. Principle of Obedience: The church has toiled with this particular principle for too long. Job 36:11. . Obedience is not a choice, it is also better than sacrifice. The Bible states in Isaiah 1:11 “The multitude of your sacrifices– what are they to me?” says the LORD. “I have more than enough of burnt offerings, of rams and the fat of fattened animals; I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats”.

When God says move you just have to get into action, no deliberation, negotiation or debate. Partial obedience is not obedience

  1. Associate with the right people

  2. You need to be God and kingdom minded to enjoy the favour of God.

“Whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are noble, whatever is noble and pure, if excellent and praiseworthy, think of these things Philippians 4:8.

Finally, the greatest commandment of all. Matthew 5:44 – “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”.

Be kind to people who do not even deserve it. Matthew 5:44. It’s hard to love your enemies, to bless those that curse you. Love those that hate you, pray for those that persecute, those who despitefully use you and you will experience the extra ordinarily grace of God.

In all these things I pray that you experience the favour of God mightily hence forth in Jesus name. Amen
