Youth Program 2021 Message, Day 2
Topic: MY GOD, MY GLORY Part 2
Text: Isaiah 60: 1 & 2, 19 & 20; Jeremiah 9: 23 & 24; John 15: 4 & 5; Daniel 11: 32
When anyone achieves a particular feat or success in this present life, such person will glory in it.
Sometimes they marry wife or husband, they glory in it. They get employment and promotion, they glory in it.
We should understand that our Christian life or faith is from one experience to the other.
If the people of the world will glory in the mundane achievements, we also must therefore glory in our spiritual walk and stages of christian life to the other.
We grow in grace. We glory in our salvation. If you are saved now, you need to grow from salvation to sanctification. This is the stage where the root of evil will not be there anymore. As we get into that experience that is another glory.
We move from that experience to the stage of the HolyGhost baptism. In this stage, you have substantial measure of the Spirit of God.
In addition, you begin to bear fruits of the Spirit.
1 Thessalonians 4: 3 & 7
Our sanctification is the will of God.
It is required that every Believer grows from salvation to sanctification.
Ephesians 4: 12 & 13
We grow to the stature and fulness of Jesus Christ. This continues until we become like him.
2 Peter 3: 18
We grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In a program like this, we cannot conclude without ensuring that you are all baptized by the HolyGhost.
Once we are born-again we must ensure that we are baptized with the Holyghost and the accompanying signs.
Acts 1: 7 & 8
It is when the HolyGhost comes upon you that you will have the boldness and power to witness.
Once we are born-again, we must not
If you are truly born-again, you must pray and seek the face of God until you are sanctified.
You cannot leave here without being baptized in the HolyGhost and particularly given the increase of wickedness in the world.
An academic degree in this present world can be compared to the experiences of moving from one glory to another.
There are Three degrees obtainable in this programme:
Salvation, Sanctification and HolyGhost baptism.
Some Points to Consider:
A. HOLYGHOST BAPTISM AND ADDED GLORY AND THE REASONS.
We know that our christian experiences are from glory to glory.
2 Corinthians 3: 18
As we behold the presence of the Lord, as we continue to be in fellowship with the Lord, we shall be transformed from glory to glory.
Be reminded that as it is in the natural so is it in the spiritual. The people in this world go from one thing to the other as added glory.
Believers glory when they are saved; we rejoice when we are sanctified.
Everyone that is in this programme, you shall be baptized in the HolyGhost as an added glory. You will never go empty handed.
This is the reason why in the days of the Apostles they waited for the baptism of the HolyGhost.
Acts 2: 1-4
They were all baptized and filled with the HolyGhost.
As you have been in this programme from Day One to Day Two, you shall never remain in one experience. Today you will move from salvation to sanctification to the HolyGhost baptism.
Remember that the HolyGhost baptism will empower you to bear the fruits of the Spirit. Your life can never be the same.
Galatians 5: 19-21;
Immediately you are baptized, these fruits of the Spirit will be seen in you.
If you are not baptized, it will be difficult for you to demonstrate the fruits of his Spirit.
Once you are baptized the HolyGhost takes over. When the Spirit of God comes upon you, he will do the work and you shall do greater exploits.
Today in this place, the HolyGhost will follow you and the work you are going to do anywhere, you will see the effect.
The HolyGhost will guide you and help you. The HolyGhost will bring to your remembrance everything you have forgotten. You cannot do much without the HolyGhost.
The HolyGhost will comfort you in times of trials, needs and temptations. You cannot be strong enough without the HolyGhost.
John 14: 26
The HolyGhost teaches you whatsoever is the mind of God or the will of God.
John 16: 13
The HolyGhost glorifies Christ. He receives from Christ.
The HolyGhost will make you to speak in diverse tongues. It will never allow anything that will not glorify God in your life.
Isaiah 60: 1, 19
The Spirit of God that comes upon you will make you to shine in the midst of the people.
God Almighty shall be your everlasting light. When the Spirit of God comes upon you, your light shall never go down.
Jeremiah 9: 23 & 24
The Lord delights in righteousness, judgement and mercy.
We are enjoined to glory in the knowledge of God,
Isaiah 61: 1
When the Spirit of God comes upon you, you will receive power to do exploits.
- OUR EXPECTED RESPONSE, HOLY GHOST BAPTISM AND THE BENEFITS.
We all should search our lives and ensure true sanctification. It is the will of God even our sanctification.
In this programme, I am assuring you that you shall not leave here the same.
We should pray to be sanctified by the Lord in this programme.
1 Thessalonians 5: 23
Today the Lord will sanctify you and as you pray, you will have the experience. After the HolyGhost will come upon you, you will receive power (Acts 2: 1-4).
The Pentecost day has come and you shall be baptized by the HolyGhost and power. You see you today, you will be filled with the HolyGhost.
Acts 4: 29 -31
There are many challenges all over the world opposing Christianity. It is therefore ignorant for you to say that you were baptized some years ago and as such you do not need another touch.
The HolyGhost is here to baptize us more and more.
We should pray that we should be filled with the HolyGhost and power.
You see you, you shall be baptized with the HolyGhost as added glory.
You shall go home full of his glory to do exploits in Jesus name. Once you are baptized today, you shall be victorious all round.
Isaiah 60: 1, 2 & 19
Beginning today as you leave this place, honestly your light shall shine and it shall never be put off.
You see you, your sun will shine. It shall no longer go down. Your moon will shine, it will never go down.
Truth, righteousness, obedience, fear of God and the wisdom of God shall be your portion. Amen.
Listen to me from now till Jesus comes any challenges or difficult situation you find yourself or where people are making selection; before you face that situation, just declare as follows, “my God, my glory”.
If that situation remains or your heart is shaken, declare it a second time, “my God, my glory”.
If your heart is still shaken, declare it a third time, “my God, my glory” and you will see the wonders of the Lord God.
As we conclude this message today, it is important that you amend your ways and do not return to sin. Sin will hinder you and deny you of your blessings. Sin will stop you from experiencing and moving from one glory to another glory.
For the sinners and Backsliders, they should repent and surrender all to Jesus Christ.
Confess your sins and accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and personal Saviour.
A Sinner is not a Christian and a Christian is not a Sinner.
1 John 3: 8 & 9;
Maybe you are asking what is sin?
1 John 5: 17a;
Unbelief is sin. Selfishness is sin; Covetousness is sin, Insincerity is sin; backbiting, murmuring, speaking evil of others, these are terrible sin.
Going to native doctors, going for divination and palm reading, all that is terrible wickedness. No child of God does that. If you are into stealing, any form of stealing; stealing from Government, stealing from companies and individuals, that is sin. Amend your ways.
If you are there and you are involved into armed robbery, duping people, do not bring such money to this Church.
If you are among those people that are involved in fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, abortion, that is terrible wickedness.
Fighting and quarreling, smoking and drunkenness all these are evil. Ask for the mercy of God.
Are you into fighting and quarreling? Are you disobedient to your husband or you are beating your wife, that is sin.
Are you into any kind of killing, poisoning people, hired assassin? Confess that sin and amend your ways. Promise God you will not return to that wickedness.
Are you into divorce? That is sin.
Matthew 19: 4-6.
Are you into polygamous marriage or you have sent away your wife or you moved away from your husband, that is sin. Marriage is between a man and a woman until death separates you.
Are you a woman dressing like a man or a man dressing like a woman, all that is sin. Deuteronomy 22: 5
Are you among those that take snuff, take cigarette and banned substances, that is sin. That is wickedness against your soul and against humanity.
All these people that bleach their body and turn yellow over night, that is sin.
I have not spoken this word to condemn you but to point out what is evil thereby enabling you to amend your ways.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Proverbs 28: 13; John 14: 6; John 1: 29; John 10: 10b; Matthew 11: 28; John 1: 12; 2 Corinthians 5: 17
As you give your life to Jesus Christ and begin to live the life of the kingdom of God, I am assuring you, that the HolyGhost will come upon you and you shall receive power to move from glory to glory. It shall be my God, my glory.
Romans 10: 13
Rise up and let us pray.
Everyone of you, By the authority in the name of Jesus, I baptise you in the HolyGhost.
Wherever you go beginning today, people shall see the glory.
No matter what the enemy said, it shall not come to pass.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I cancel that word and I cross you over. Amen.
Let the glory of faith come upon you.
