SUNDAY COMBINED WORSHIP SERVICE 27/02/2022
Topic: THE KINGDOM’S FABULOUS BLESSINGS.
Text: Exodus 3: 6-8; Genesis 1: 26-30; Matthew 6: 33
Inferring from the points already discussed in our february weekly services, we can all agree that our God is a fabulous, wonderful, marvellous God. The Bible also bears witness that He is a great God- Malachi 1:14, Jeremiah 32:18, Psalm 121:8
Due to His fabulous nature, he gave man access to all things from the beginning. Even when man sinned and lost the access, God did not waste time in recovering him. God’s plan for man is for man to be with him and stay in charge of everything. We can confirm this in Genesis 1:27- 30.
Unfortunately, man fell for the temptation of the devil and lost the glory. Genesis 3:1 & 23.
God never planned for humanity to be in suffering. Read these scriptures to confirm this.Deut 6:11, Deut 11:11,
As many who are away from God’s fabulous blessings, He wants you back in His plans if you are ready to turn away from sin.
We shall consider the following points for better understanding:
1: GOD’S FABULOUS KINGDOM, OUR FORE MOST NEED AND THE REASONS.
As a result of the sin of Adam and Eve, man was excommunicated from God’s plan of fabulous blessings. However, God Almighty has planned our return through His kingdom.
In this kingdom, God rules. People who are Born again are members of this kingdom and their lifestyle is that of righteousness.
Matthew 6:33; Luke 15:31,
Remember that God gave these blessings to Adam and Eve before they sinned. If you’re not born again and you think you are rich in material wealth, know that anything gotten outside God isn’t ‘fabulous’ blessings.
Such blessings usually end in sorrow. Proverbs 10:22.
Matthew 4:8, Mark 8:35, john 10:1, Matthew 25:46.
As believers, you are not to envy sinners because of their wealth. Any wealth gotten outside Christ is not valuable. Jesus remians THE WAY. Matthew 11:27
- FABULOUS BLESSINGS, THE INHERITANCE OF GOD’S CHILDREN AND OUR RESPONSE
As we have said before, fabulous blessings come from God and he freely gives it to his children. In the Bible days, he gave it to people like Abraham. Genesis 12:1-4,Genesis 13:2, Gen 24:1.
In Exodus 1:7, we also see how God blessed the Isrealites and brought them out of captivity. Exodus 3:6-8,
Joshua 1:3- The promise here was initially given to the people of old, but we are now partakers by extension.
So long as you are Born again, fabulous blessings shall be your portion. Deut 28:1
All true children of the most high God are co-owners of the inheritance of God.
As a result of this, we are continually dwelling in fabulous blessings.
Those who aren’t born again run the risk of losing everything to the children of God. It’s just like the people in the Bible days who God asked the children to take over their land; they weren’t children of God and lost it all.
We are to respond to this message by asking God for fabulous blessings knowing that it’s our right.
As we conclude this message today, make sure you do not give place to the Devil. You must therefore amend your ways and do not return to sin.
Sin will hinder you and deny you of your blessings and joy.
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. Unforgiveness is sin; Selfishness is sin; Covetousness is sin
Lusting after evil things is sin. Insincerity is sin; backbiting, murmuring, speaking evil of others, these are terrible sin. You need to search your life. Confess them. Repent and promise God, no more.
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 extortion? Taking bribe or giving bribe? That is sin. Amend your ways.
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. 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.
Proverbs 28: 13;
God is willing to show you mercy and he has made provisions for the sins that are passed.
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 fabulous blessings shall be your portion in Jesus name.
Romans 10: 13
Rise up and let us pray.
