BETTER BE RUNNING

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows that it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It does’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle: when the sun comes up, you had better be running. Run after your goal, dream to make it a reality. Dont wait for motivation. Motivation begins with a decision. But remember to commit your work[plan] unto the Lord, and your thoughts shall be established. Good morning May God shower His favour upon you. Jesus is Lord ISAIAH O OBANLA

ACCESSING THE VOICE OF GOD

BY PASTOR DR. J.O.M. AJILEYE, A LECTURER AT CHRIST APOSTOLIC CHURCH THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY, ABUJA CAMPUS. TEXT: PSALM 29; 1COR. 14:10; HEB. 1:1-2; HEB. 12:25-28 OUTLINE: INTRODUCTION DEFINITIONS OF TERMS THE VOICE OF GOD, WHAT IS IT TO US? DOES GOD STILL SPEAK TODAY? PRE-REQIUSITES TO ACCESSING THE VOICE OF GOD BIBLICAL MEN & WOMEN THAT ACCESSED THE VOICE OF GOD: LESSONS TO LEARN HOW TO HEAR FROM GOD CONCLUSION INTRODUCTION: We need to appreciate God who in His infinite mercy predestined us a chosen generation and a royal priesthood to show forth His praises (Romans 8:29, 30; 1Peter2:9, 10). Having obtained redemption in Christ Jesus with all benefits appertain thereto, we need to jealously guard ourselves in this perverse generation. The theme ‘Accessing The Voice Of God’ with all the sub-topics specially chosen for this conference are germane at this material time of ours; the time when false prophets have taken the centre stage in the Christendom. God have mercy! As church workers manning the post for Christ in the vineyard and on our way to heaven, it is pertinent to identify succinctly the various voices we are hearing. Apostle Paul in 1Cor. 14:10, indicates the existence of different voices,

BLESSEDNESS OF ACCESSING GOD’S VOICE

STUDY TEXT: MATTHEW 3:16, 17 INTRODUCTION: Before we could talk of Blessedness of Accessing God’s Voice, let us take a look at Open Heaven. Beloved, the issue of Open Heaven is a serious one. It is the Father’s will that the heaven be opened to you (Luke 3:22). There arose a question between some of John the Baptist disciples and the Jews about purifying in John 3:25-27 and in verse 27 John answered them and said ‘A man can receive nothing except it be given from heaven’. What Is Open Heaven? According to the scriptures Open Heaven is a situation whereby a door of Divine Revelation is opened to someone from the throne of God (John 1:51). Open Heaven enables one to hear the Voice of God- as Jesus at His Baptism (Matt. 3:16, 17). What is the Voice of God? The voice of God is the leading of the Holy Spirit in the lives of His children here on earth. According to Romans 8:14, ‘for as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God’. When we talk of the Blessedness of Accessing God’s Voice, it simply means the benefits of hearing the

What Do I Need For My Life

When we look into the entire wide world today, what we see all over is crisis, war, terrorism, pandemonium, hunger, ritual killings, etc. In short, we see that the whole world is full of evil. It shows that evil now reigns over the land, no one seems to know the way out, everybody is confused even those at the helm of affairs politically and economically don’t know the best solution anymore. The countries of the world known as super-powers that are advanced politically, socially, economically, technologically, and seemingly religiously are all living in fear of uncertainty. The home front too is not even left out, the family system has totally collapsed, divorce rate is on the high side day in day out, single parenting taking over and homosexuality is spreading like wild fire. Drug taking (marijuana) is being legalized in so-called advanced state. Child labour, human trafficking and slavery, prostitution and drug trafficking, baby factory and body organ sales remain most lucrative business generating billions of dollars every year.
