SUNDAY MESSAGE 16/01/2022
TEXT: Matthew 6:33; John 8:29; Luke 15:31;John 5:36
TOPIC: What Must I Do To Be Blessed?
As we have crossed over to the Year of Dominion favour, blessings and miracles, everyone is in expectation of what to do in order to be blessed this year.
In like manner, Jesus and the Apostles asked questions, the people also asked what to do to make eternal life. We too should ask what we must do to realize God’s blessings for this year and what he has determined for us in the Year 2022.
Luke 3:10-14, Acts 23:15; Matthew 19:16-18.
We should seek what to do this year to realise God blessings and go on to do them and we shall be blessed in Jesus name.
We shall consider this message under the following Subheadings:
1) THE REASONS AND WAYS TO BE BLESSED.
Our Father in Heaven has made many promises for his Chosen ones to be blessed here in this world and in Eternity. The Chosen ones have nothing to worry about because the promises of God covers every area of our needs and we have nothing to worry about. Psalm 23:1.
For the Psalmist, there is nothing to worry about at all.
1 Corinthians 3:21. So for every believer, all things belong to us.
This year is the year of Dominion, Favour, blessings and miracles for the Chosen people. And it has been passed as a decree and law on us and it must surely come to pass.
God is the all-powerful, holy and faithful God. He cannot lie. What God says concerning us, he will surely bring it to pass. Therefore, that Law or determination for us must be fulfilled. It is irrevocable.Isaiah 46:10-11.
I want to let you know that this year we shall be in dominion; favour shall be our portion. blessings shall be our portion, and miracle all the way.
Matthew 24:35; Jeremiah 1:12
God will watch over what he said to bring it to pass. So be rest assured this determination must be fulfilled. So therefore this question becomes readily necessary at this time. “What Must I do to be blessed?”
Your question is no longer whether the promises will be fulfilled, whether God will do it, or whether God has the power. You have come to terms and agreement, that God will surely do what he has said.
Just like that woman that testified today that had a diabolic and wicked neighbour. When she heard the G.O’s Ministration that fire will burn the abode of that neighbour to ashes; she was shaking because she knew it will surely come to pass. She went home and was telling everyone ‘fire will burn here’ and gathered her properties.
That same evening, fire came and burnt the house and because she believed, her possessions were preserved.
So for us Chosen People, this year we shall be in Dominion, Favour, blessings and miracles.
We believe it.
The apostles were not asking wether they will make heaven. But knew it and lived their lives accordingly.
So for us, we are sure that these promises must be realized. So we are now asking what must we do to obtain these blessings?
Our Father in Heaven is ready to give us the answer. Remember when the disciples asked John the Baptist what they must do. Did they get the answer? Yes. In Luke 3:10-14, answers were given to all their question.
The Apostles that asked Jesus questions, answers were given to them. The way we are to realise God’s blessings is very very clear.
Matthew 6:33. You must make sure you are truely born again and you maintain righteousness. You must make sure that you are not a compromiser, backslider, sinner.
You must make sure you are an obedient child of God doing the totality of his will. And then God will bring his promises to pass in your life. This is the most important aspect of this message. Deutronomy 28:1-13.
Listen carefully and understand what God wants you to do and as you do, you shall be blessed above your equal.
Don’t be a careless listener. Look at Exodus 19:4-6 “If you will obey my voice indeed” all his blessings will come to pass in your life. So if you must be blessed, you must be truely born again, sanctified, pray through to it so that the root of sin will be taken away from you. Unclean thought, immoral thought will no more be there. You must be baptized and become integrated into the body of Christ. Identify with Christ death, burial and resurrection. You must be dipped in the Water. And if you have been coming and you are not seeing anything, it is because you are not obeying the Lord.
Now that we are expecting the rapture, you should hurry to do this. You should also press to be baptised with the Holyghost. And begin to speak in tongues. You must also press for the fruit and gift of the Holyghost. Do you have love, joy, humility, faithfulness, truth, holiness? If they are not there, pray them in. The gift of the spirit you pray them in; Evangelism, prayerfulness. You must pray for God to give you the power to do his will and to become full of his spirit and power. Stop asking for money all the time. As you do this you are sure to realising the blessings of God. So we should endeavour to do the totality of the will of God according to the scriptures. John 4:30-34
Jesus was committed in doing his will in every area. Obeying God, living right in every area. John 5:17 & 36. Jesus was perfecting his people and doing great works to show to the people that he came from the Father.
So you can see how to realise these blessings. You shall serve the Lord your God and he will bless you, protect you, maintain you to keep on serving him. And you will live long, not be sick, and be protected. God will fight your battles. There will be no miscarriage in your life as a matter of maintainace. Dominion, favour, blessings, miracles shall be your portion.
So do you see why God was with Jesus always? He is always pleasing God. The Psalmist said Psalm 23:1. So be rest assured. He said ‘heaven and earth shall pass away but my word shall not pass away.’ So whatever he promises me, he will bring it to pass. And it is the perfect will of God that we realise these blessings. We must consecrate ourselves totally to him. We must not keep ourselves from him but serve him with full dedication. Some people, you will see them on Sundays but on Tuesdays, or Thursdays, Saturday worker’s meetings, Night vigils you will not see them. So if you are coming to church service only on Sundays, you are still an unbeliever. You are still far from him even if you are claiming to be a believer. Peter was still an unbeliever following Jesus afar off. And you see how he denied CHRIST. So there must be commitment so that you will not deny Christ. It was the prayer of Jesus that kept Peter. Jesus said to him, Satan have desired to sift you as wheat but I have prayed for you.
Are you enjoying their associations, politics? But if you are fully dedicated to the Lord, you can’t do that. So you should always be in the service with the Lord. Housecare fellowship which is just one hour, you must not miss it. Outside housecare fellowship, those who are committed leaders, they will go for night vigils on Monday. And those committed members will gather on Tuesdays. And on Wednesdays, the leaders and workers vigil. Thursdays. And Friday committed workers will gather for night vigils. Saturdays, they go for workers meeting and follow up. And Sunday come for Bible Study and service.
Matthew 11:27, Matthew 28:18, Luke 15:31
While you are fully committed to him, Dominion is thine, favour is thine, blessing is thine, miracle is thine.
2: OUR RESPONSE AND BENEFITS..
Having known these truth, we should not delay to do what we are told to do. Numbers 13: 30. Remember John 4:31-36. We shouldn’t hesitate. The field is white. Let us not delay to harvest those souls. See what is going on in Nigeria and all over the world. The coming of the Lord is at hand. People are tired of the world and searching for the truth. You see you, when you join us to win these souls, you will receive your reward from heaven.
We all should search our lives, amend our ways and surrender totally to Jesus Christ. Serve him with all your being from onward. And I’m assuring you, you will surely come into these blessings. Don’t forget Matthew 6:33; Deutronomy 28:1-13. So once we serve him accordingly, we shall realise these blessings and have all our needs met and make heaven at last in Jesus name.
Our Father is ever ready to bring us into Dominion, favour, blessings and miracles. Remember on 24th December 2002, I gave you a message “Do the will of God and prosper.” Now everywhere you can see the presence of the Lord’s Chosen.
And God has been prospering us and increasing us. So my message is still the same. Do the will of God and proper. That is the Master key. Matthew 6:33; Luke 15:31, Genssis 24:1 1 Cor 3:21, Matthew 11:27. All things will be your portion.
Note, if you are always absent in church, on sunday you are here and next day you have gone to village meeting, market association, appointments. You take church as spare tire. Don’t you know that appointment with God is the greatest? Are you like that; selective on the service to attend? You are not dedicated. And you are looking for dominion, favour, you want God to bless you? Forget about them. If you want God to bless you and you are living a Christian life according to your own way, you don’t do the will of God, you are wasting your time. You should keep on struggling and keep on stealing what is meant for the Chosen, since you don’t believe God can help you. If you are struggling like the world those things do not belong to you, and if you get them you are stealing what belongs to the people of God. John 8:29. If you do the will of God you will answer favour as a name this year. You see you, I will hear your testimony. You see that hymn we sang “There shall be showers of blessings”. You see that showers of blessings it shall come upon you, if we can do the will of God always. As for me I will do the will of God always. Don’t envy me oo.
Some years back, in the 1980s, I went and paid for a room at 25, Ilaje Street, Bariga. So we usually go there regularly for prayers. At that time one of the boys came to me and asked me ‘why is it that when we pray and pray, all the blessings will come upon you.’ You’re buying cars, this and that. In my heart, I said ‘who payed for the place where we are praying?’
Look, If you want to be blessed, be committed like I am.
Some people, they will be saying Pastor you are blessed. However they do not know the commitment that resulted to such blessings. Chosen people let us do the will of God and prosper. The blessings are for you. God watches over his word to perform it.
This year Dominion, favour, blessings, miracles shall be yours, and I am going to hear your testimony.
So those who are not serious they should not bother because blessungs are the children’s bread.
So let us live our lives for him and we shall be blessed forever in Jesus name. John 13:17
You will be happy because all the blessings of God will be fulfilled in your life. Those that struggle it’s because they do not know the principle of God. But when you do, you will serve him faithfully and see the results. You shall be blessed mightily in Jesus name. Be reminded that there is a program coming very shortly “From Sorrow to Joy”. It is greater than the last program that we just had. It is in this program that we enter the New Year proper.
“From Sorrow to Joy”. Tell all the churches, heathen people. This is time to come and obtain the blessings of God. And it will take place 12th and 13th of February. As it approaches we should go into personal evangelism, house to house, bus evangelism, morning cry, night cry, fasting and prayer. Send invitations to friends far and near.
Do publicity on media, radio, sending texts, emails. We must buy handbills and distribute to people. Many people are wearing past apron including me. So we need to start putting on appropriate apron. I am already planning. Buy the banners. Let’s do all we can to ensure the success of the program. We should also come with our first fruits. Matthew 6:33.
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.
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;
Are you asking, “what is sin?”
1 John 5: 17a;
All unrighteousness is sin.
Unbelief is sin. Selfishness is sin; Covetousness is sin, Insincerity is sin; backbiting, murmuring, speaking evil of others, these are terrible sin.
Are you patronising the native doctors or you are one of them? Are you 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, ritual killings?Confess that sin and amend your ways. Promise God you will not return to that wickedness.

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. It is an abomination. Deuteronomy 22: 5. Abominable people can never enter Heaven. Revelations 21: 8.
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.
