Job 5:17“Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects; Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty. 18 For He bruises, but He binds up; He wounds, but His hands make whole. 19 He shall deliver you in six troubles, Yes, in seven no evil shall touch you. 20 In famine He shall redeem you from death, And in war from the power of the sword. 21 You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, And you shall not be afraid of destruction when it comes. 22 You shall laugh at destruction and famine, And you shall not be afraid of the beasts of the earth. 23 For you shall have a covenant with the stones of the field, And the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you. 24 You shall know that your tent is in peace; You shall visit your dwelling and find nothing amiss. 25 You shall also know that your descendants shall be many, And your offspring like the grass of the earth. 26 You shall come to the grave at a full age, As a sheaf of grain ripens in its season. 27 Behold, this we have searched out; It is true. Hear it, and know for yourself.”
1 I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations. 2 I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself. 3 You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant, 4 ‘I will establish your line forever and make your throne firm through all generations.’” 5 The heavens praise your wonders, Lord, your faithfulness too, in the assembly of the holy ones. 6 For who in the skies above can compare with the Lord? Who is like the Lord among the heavenly beings? 7 In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared; he is more awesome than all who surround him. 8 Who is like you, Lord God Almighty? You, Lord, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you. 9 You rule over the surging sea; when its waves mount up, you still them. 10 You crushed Rahab like one of the slain; with your strong arm you scattered your enemies. 11 The heavens are yours, and yours also the earth; you founded the world and all that is in it. 12 You created the north and the south; Tabor and Hermon sing for joy at your name. 13 Your arm is endowed with power; your hand is strong, your right hand exalted. 14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you. 15 Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, Lord. 16 They rejoice in your name all day long; they celebrate your righteousness. 17 For you are their glory and strength, and by your favor you exalt our horn. 18 Indeed, our shield belongs to the Lord, our king to the Holy One of Israel. 19 Once you spoke in a vision, to your faithful people you said: “I have bestowed strength on a warrior; I have raised up a young man from among the people. 20 I have found David my servant; with my sacred oil I have anointed him. 21 My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him. 22 The enemy will not get the better of him; the wicked will not oppress him. 23 I will crush his foes before him and strike down his adversaries. 24 My faithful love will be with him, and through my name his horn will be exalted. 25 I will set his hand over the sea, his right hand over the rivers. 26 He will call out to me, ‘You are my Father, my God, the Rock my Savior.’ 27 And I will appoint him to be my firstborn, the most exalted of the kings of the earth. 28 I will maintain my love to him forever, and my covenant with him will never fail. 29 I will establish his line forever, his throne as long as the heavens endure. 30 “If his sons forsake my law and do not follow my statutes, 31 if they violate my decrees and fail to keep my commands, 32 I will punish their sin with the rod, their iniquity with flogging; 33 but I will not take my love from him, nor will I ever betray my faithfulness. 34 I will not violate my covenant or alter what my lips have uttered. 35 Once for all, I have sworn by my holiness— and I will not lie to David— 36 that his line will continue forever and his throne endure before me like the sun; 37 it will be established forever like the moon, the faithful witness in the sky.”
…………………………………. 52 Praise be to the Lord forever! Amen and Amen.
1 Corinthians 6:12 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
The society has degenerated to the lowest level of perversion so much that children as young as 3,4 years old are going to be / already taught the intricacy of sex. A whole nation eradicating the first institution ordained by God on the basis of individual rights! What will become of the natural state of being? Where is the world headed?
Destruction! if we all do not repent and forsake every form of ungodliness. Righteousness exalt a nation and sin is a reproach. Let me bring this home. We that are named by God as His own, are we living by example? Are we secretly living in sin and probably doing worst? Repent today!
We need to seek for forgiveness now for every atrocities in our society and stand guard against every devices of the crafty to infiltrate the body of Christ. It’s seeping in gradually. The Church is in the world but not of the world. It is high time we take our rightful place by preparing ourselves to be filled to overflowing with the power of the Holy Spirit. The world has been deceived by immorality,materialism and much more. Will we still be standing when our Lord comes? Will I? Will you?
Please friends, watch and pray! We get tempted here and there, sex is all around us beckoning us to take just a sip of its poison, that’s what it is. Its a temporary satisfaction and afterwards, dissatisfaction, which out weighs satisfaction and causes lingering regret.
Lord please help my friends and I to never forget that you live in our bodies and so therefore keep it clean of all filthiness in our thoughts and actions. Lord, may we be smart enough to know what triggers the inherent sinfulness in all humans and avoid it. May your Holy Spirit guide and guard us that we might not sin against you. For if any man thinks he stand, let him watch less he falls. We want to live holy Lord, please help us to be sensitive to your spirit so we might not be deceived by the deceitfulness of sin. We pray and receive grace in Christ Jesus name. Amen
Psalm of David 24:3 and 4. Read whole chapter for better understanding
3 Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? 4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.
Friends, you and I are always in the presence of the Most High. He is omnipresence, sees all things. The secret things of the heart, the schemes, manipulations, intentions and motives. He cannot be deceived! It is possible to deceive the smartest of being, but not our God. Giants of faith like David,Samson, Abraham were deceived at one point, not the Most High God. He knows the nitty gritty of all creation, for they came into being by His words.
Do not take the love, patience and long suffering of God for granted. In due time He will repay. Do you take the communion with hatred, malice, evil, un-forgiveness in your heart. Examine yourself, if you are still in the way of life and repent of all wickedness. God does not want any to perish but have everlasting life. Repent therefor and be cleansed. Don’t just go to Church today in pretense. Repent! repent! repent! Appropriate the blood of Jesus over your life. Let it cleanse and make you whole.
Judgement is coming upon the wicked even in this life. Every workers of unrighteousness shall have their due recompense. Suffer not a witch to live! In the name of Jesus Christ, take authority over every manipulating spirit, deceptive, serpentine and contrary spirit to the Holy Spirit, bind them and cast them out of your life and Church. You have the authority as a believer. It is all there in the scripture. Read your bible friends, your life depend on it. Do not allow wickedness to reign in your midst/member.
Most High God, as your children gather before you, stretch out your hand Oh Lord to deliver and save. Let the captives be set free, the bound loosed, the blind see, deaf hear, dumb speak, let evil spirit be bound and cast out of those oppressed. Lord let righteousness reign in the midst of your people. Purge wickedness out with the blood of your son Jesus Christ. In Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen
Praise the Lord from whom all blessings flow. He has kept you alive till today in good times and not so good times. You have been through storms, flood, trials, tribulations and you are still here with hope and grace to go on. You are blessed more than you can ever imagine.
Today is a new day, a new dawn for the miraculous to manifest in all areas of your life. The unconditional love of the creator of the whole universe is wrapped round you. Can you feel God’s arm round about you, his gaze upon your face lighting you up and warming your heart. The light of God’s countenance overshadowing you.
I am amazed by the depth of your love oh Lord! Be magnified in the lives of your people.Let your glory fill our hearts today oh Lord. Let us offer unto you Lord a sacrifice of thanksgiving from a truly grateful heart.
