THEME: GOD HAS SWORN TO BLESS YOU PART 1
TEXT: Genesis 22:16, Exodus 19:5, Jeremiah 32:27, 2 Chronicles 7:14.
We all must appreciate that our Father in heaven, the Almighty God, the Omnipotent, omnipresent, and Omniscient God, Our Master, the Everlasting Father has sworn to bless us.
By reason of this understanding, if today we repent of all our sins and sins of the nations and that of our families, he will bless our land.
God has not changed, he is ever ready, if only we can confess and repent of our sins he is always ready to forgive.
Genesis 17:1,Exodus 34:5,Hebrews 13:5, Malachi 13:6,2chron 7:13, Genesis 24:1
He that swore and blessed Abraham, he has not changed.The unchangeable God will show us mercy and forgive us but if only we can repent of all the blood shed, evil, killings, immorality, ungodliness and unrighteousness. He will forgive us and heal our land and also bless us. It is never the will of God that our nations and families should die and go to hell. If we can repent on behalf of ourselves and nation and the world in general he is sure to forgive and show mercy.
We shall consider this message under the following sub headings:
1:THE HOLY GOD, UNFORTUNATE SITUATION, REASONS AND EXAMPLES.
We should be reminded that God Almighty is the Creator of heaven and earth. We must also be conscious that God has the supremacy over all things.
Genesis 1:1,Colossians 1:16,Genesis 1:26, Revelations 3:1-11, Genesis 3:23-24, Isaiah 6:3, Isaiah 43:3 Habakkuk 1:13,1 Peter 1:15,?Matthew 6:33.
Inferring from all the aforelisted scriptures, we should know that God does not tolerate iniquity. If you want to be with God you must go back to the kingdom of God and all things shall be added unto you. All things include spiritually, physically, academically, maritally and otherwise. Whatsoever you think you have outside the will of God is counterfeit and can only lead you to hell fire. That is an unfortunate situation.
Whatsoever you are going through make sure you listen to the voice of God, Remember God took an oath to bless Father Abraham and his generation because he obeyed the will of God for his life. If you obey the voice of God and do his will, he will bless us as he blessed Father Abraham and heal our land too.
The two Irrevocable promises of God which cannot fail, are his oath and blessings.
:Exodus 19:5, 2 Chronicles 7:13, Genesis 22:16, Genesis 24:1.
2: OUR EXPECTED RESPONSE AND HIS OATH.
John 25:5, 2 Chronicles 15:1, Judges 6:1-6, Genesis 22:16.
God has made us to understand through his word that he cannot dwell with evil. We must therefore repent and turn away from our sins. In the secular world, when you commit crime or do evil When you will go to prison. However when you do evil in the sight of God, he will allow problems and afflictions. Sin begat problems and afflictions, so search your life.
As you go through this message you will discover that God Almighty has called for our repentance, As you repent today I am assuring you the oath of God’s blessings will come upon you.
2 Chronicles 7:14, Haggai 2:19, Matthew 6:33, Romans 3:23, Ezekiel 18:4,1 John 3:8-9,
1 John 5:17, 1 Cuorinthians 6:9, Deuteronomy 22:5, Revelation 21:8
There is something that we must understand, sin separates man from God.
As we conclude the part one of 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.

As you give your life to Jesus Christ and begin to live the life of the kingdom of God, I am assuring you, that you shall be blessed indeed.
