- A CALL FOR REPENTANCE AND THE REASONS.
We all should realise that God loves us to the extent of giving man everything from the beginning of the world. He loves humanity and that is why he created us in his own image and likeness.
He created everything for humanity without charge.
Genesis 1: 27 -30;
At the very beginning, human beings were not labouring to eat. We had everything free of charge.
Even at the time our first parents sinned and did not repent, God still promised us redemption through the seed of a woman.
Genesis 3:1-6 & 15
The above scripture illustrates how God planned the redemption of man.
When God drove them away from the garden of Eden that is full of good things, he sent our Lord Jesus Christ to recover all that was lost.

In view that all have sinned, God did not waste time to bring us back to the glory that was earlier lost. To bring us back to the presence of God; to the glory of God.
John 10: 10
Irrespective of the wickedness of the present world, irrespective of all the abominations, corruption and sin, Jesus Christ is here again. God is here again with his love .
The Lord is pleading that we should repent and return to him in righteousness and he will forgive us and bless us again. If you look at this world now, a lot of evil is going on.
I am assuring you that if we repent, God will bless us again.

Why was Jesus Christ here on earth? He has come to seek and to save us.
Jesus Christ has come to plead with sinners and Backsliders to repent.

If my people who are called by my name can humble themselves, God shall hear our prayers.
As you are hearing me, there is no more time. There is no more time. Repent and draw closer to God in humility, confession and repentance.
There is no repentance in the grave.
Remember the Lord said to the people of God in times past in Exodus 19: 5. Let us apply to the instructions that God has given to us. God will bless us again.
Exodus 19: 5
The Lord says, if we obey and return to the Lord.
Remember Abraham obeyed the Lord and he was blessed in all things.
All the earth belongs to God.
Genesis 22: 16-18
My Brothers and Sisters there is something we need to do to attract the blessings of God. Abraham feared God; Abraham obeyed God
As we obey the Lord like Abraham, the God that blessed him will do the same thing for us today.
Further reading Genesis 24: 1;
Deuteronomy 28: 1 & 2
I want to assure you, as you obey the Lord, the blessings of God shall come upon you. God is holy and the covenant keeping God. The One that has spoken and commanded his word is Holy. He cannot lie and he cannot change his word.
God will fulfil his promise therefore get ready.
If you will fulfil his will by genuine repentance and pour out your heart to him, I am assuring you from today, God will surprise you.
- OUR RESPONSE AND THE BENEFITS.

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;
You might be 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. Pride is sin; bitterness, bearing grudges; swearing with heaven and earth, all these are terrible sins.
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 today, there shall be transformation. Come to the Father through Jesus Christ and your sins shall be washed away.
As you begin to live the life of the kingdom of God, the oath that God has taken to bless Abraham, that oath shall come upon you.
Romans 10: 13
Rise up and let us pray.
Let the power to obey God and do the will of God like Abraham come upon you.
God will bless you today in Jesus name
