A very confused world

Thursday, 5th February 2009, the Metro paper on it’s front page reports about a 16 year old that has set a sex-change record. Born Tim, Kim Petras, an aspiring model and pop singer became the youngest person to complete a sex-change. The operation was carried on the 16-year-old German after doctors agreed she was ‘without doubt a girl in a boy’s body’. What confusion. What a confused world we live in today! How can a boy created by God be a girl in a boy’s body. In a confused world, every opinion goes. The so called experts will and are propounding all sorts of wicked and evil theories and doctrines of demons. Little wonder that they said Tim was a girl in a boy’s body. 1 Tim 4:1-3 says ” 1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, 3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth” Needless to say, we are in the last days and our comfort? He is coming back soon! Be ready, Jesus is coming back soon!

~ A word for your week~ Eccl 3:14

Beloved, our text this week says “I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him. God created Tim, in His image and likeness, and as our text says, it is forever or should have been forever, nothing to be added to it and nothing to be taken from it, perfect I must add, so that men should reverence Him for His great and unsearchable wisdom. But the doctors have said that Tim was a girl in a boy’s body and did a sex-change for him. Consequently, thay have added to and subtracted from God’s perfect creation and disrespected and de-valued His wisdom. For you child of God, you are the manifestation of His wisdom, He created you perfect in His image and likeness. No man shall add or take from you. You are beautifully and wonderfully created, a masterpiece! Marvellous are you, the work of His hand. Praise God!!!

As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that …

  • Your week shall be one of great peace and great calm!
  • You shall see yourself perfectly created in His image and likeness!
  • As His creation, you shall be satisfied with how He made you!
  • As His creation, you shall be satisfied with what He has given you for your life – gifts, talents, abilities and skills!
  • You shall not covet another life, you shall find joy and fulfillment in the life He has given you!
  • You are blessed, beautiful and highly favoured!

Have a great week!

FARM 2009

What is it and why are we doing it? Family And Relationship Month 2009 is a dedicated and focused month, usually every February, by our church, Kingdom Gospel Church, where we take time out, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to teach on the family and relationships. Relationships in this context can be anything from marriages to dealing with issues around being single, divorced or being a widow/widower. The family is very close to the heart of God. He created it! In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth and guess what? He also created the family!

~ A word for your week ~ Eph 3:14-15

As we were preparing for FARM 2009, God gave us a word we tittled “God is a family Man”. Our Scripture text this week is proof positive that God is indeed a family Man. The text says “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named”. So, the Apostle Paul tells us that we are part of God’s family and God’s family is both in heaven and earth. God is that big to have a family that extends from the heaven to the earth! What an extended family! As a family Man, God is responsible for His own. He protects, provides and does all that we need for our daily living. Even the day we live in is provided for us by God. Psalm 118:24 says “This is the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.” God is a great and gracious Father, a true family Man. As we have committed to a monthly podcast on our website, I have made this message the podcast for the month of February.

As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that …

  • Your week shall be one of great grace and glory in your life!
  • As a child of a very very big God, you will experience the bigness of your Father God in every aspect of your life!
  • You will enjoy maximum favour, love and affection of your heavenly Father
  • You shall be a child that brings pride and joy to his/her Father God!
  • You are blessed and highly favoured and anointed to succeed!

Have a great week!

The love of money

Beloved, the media reported last week on the sentencing of Karen Matthews, for the part that she played in the kidnap of her daughter, Shannon. The sentence is 8 years in prison. Regardless of the length of the prison term, I believe planning and participating in the kidnap of your own child for the sake of the reward money is beyond comprehension. So, I wonder how a mother could possibly place a monetary value on her child. While Karen Matthews may value her child to be worth a few thousand pounds, God’s value of you and indeed all His children is Himself. Nothing, not a thing, on this side of heaven is equal to your value. It took God to die on the Cross to redeem you. Your value is heavenly. You are more valuable than anything on the earth! Praise God!

 

~ A word for your week~ 1 Tim 6:10

Beloved, our text this week reads “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows”. I believe this is the harsh reality in the case of Karen Matthews. I am sure she loved her daughter as a mother would but her love or lust, really, overwhelmed her love for her child so that she was driven to participate in the planning and kidnap of her own daughter, for the reward money. As she goes to prison, Shannon and her other children will be taken into care, that’s a family in tatters, thrown into this ugly situation because of a mother’s lust for money. Matt 6:24 says “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon”. For the child of God, mammon which is symbolic of money and the pursuit of it is not his/her focus. God is our focus. As we seek and pursue Him, all these things that the unbelievers seek after shall be added unto us! What a God we serve! Bless His name!

 

~ Prophetic blast~

As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that…

·         Your week shall be a week of ease, no stress, struggle, despair or depression

·         As you exalt God above money and all else, God will make money pursue you and serve you!

·         Nothing shall be able to compare with the value that God has placed on you!

·         You shall continually be a shining light to your generation and your world!

·         Blessed and distinguished shall you be always among men!

 

Have a great week!

Miracles still happen!

Beloved, the world was astounded last week when all 155 people on board a US Airways A320 passenger plane that crashed into New York’s Hudson River escaped with no loss of life. Save for some minor scratches and injuries, both passengers and crew were unscathed. What a miracle! Even Metro newspaper reported the story in its front page as a ‘Miracle on the Hudson River’. So, the world acknowledges that miracles still happen, but how do they happen? I’d like to answer by saying that there’s a miracle working God behind the scenes. And He is the God that we serve! Join me in thanking Him for protecting these 155 souls and for sparing New York and indeed the United States more grief and sorrow. Jehovah is the miracle working God; praise Him for wonder working power!!!

 

~ A word for your week ~ John 2:1-11

Beloved, our text this week reminds us of the miracle the Lord did at the wedding in Cana of Galilee. In verse 11, the Contemporary English Version says that this was Jesus’ first miracle…And He showed His glory and His disciples put their faith in Him. There are three lessons I would like to share with you, from this text –

(1) God does miracles to meet a need – they had run out of wine in the wedding feast, so, an unbudgeted need arose, which Jesus duly met. Is there a need in your life, God is able to meet all your needs

(2) God does miracles to reveal His glory – His glory in this context is what He is able to do and He can do all things! Nothing is too difficult for the Lord and

(3) for people to have faith in Him. Do not despair, God is able to do the so called impossible. When God does what we have always known as impossible, we cannot but put our trust and faith in Him.

So, as we see this miracle that God did on the Hudson River, let us therefore hold fast to our faith in Him. He is a faithful God and will always answer with a miracle. Are you waiting on Him for any thing? Do not lose faith; your miracle is on the way!

 

~ Prophetic blast ~

As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that…

·         Your week shall be a week of great grace, peace and joy!

·         The Lord will meet every need in your life with a miracle!

·         The glory of Lord shall not be lacking in your life!

·         Your faith will be strengthened and increase as God answers you with His special miracles

·         Your testimony shall be a miracle to those who hear what God has done in your life!

·         You are blessed and anointed for kingdom exploits!

 

Have a great week!

It’s a shaking

Beloved, again we are faced with news of companies going into administration, job losses, small businesses going under and the general uncertainty of the times. Specific mention must be made of Woolworths, a major High Street retailer whose demise after 100 years of trading would forever alter the traditional landscape of the British High Street. So, what is happening? I think it’s a shaking! A shaking that is unveiling the fraudulent and weak structures that man built and surrounded himself with. It’s a shaking that brings a loud and clear message to all humanity, that only God made and God given structures are fit and can sustain man. My foundation and confidence is in God and His structures. Hope He is yours as well!

 

~ A word for your week ~ Haggai 2:6-8

Beloved, our text this week says “For thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the LORD of hosts.” Jehovah has promised a shaking for all creation and particularly for the nations and this shaking will bring them to the ‘Desire of All Nations’. And who is the Desire of All Nations? I think you know His name! So, it is not all doom and gloom, this will bring glory and honour to our God! And He promises too to fill His temple, the church, with glory! The silver and gold rightly belongs to Him, so, man cannot use His resources as an occasion to build structures and foundations that separates him from His creator. I believe He is bringing a re-alignment of man’s dependence on Him and not on His silver and gold. I believe this is an opportune moment for the church to pray that His will be done! I say Amen in Jesus name! And you?

 

~ Prophetic blast ~

As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that…

·         Your week shall be a week of ease and comfort. God shall remove stress, struggle or despair far from you!

·         The Lord will not put you to shame for your faith in Him. You shall forever find Him faithful and dependable!

·         God shall clothe you with His mercies, graces, strength and peace through these turbulent times!

·         While others maybe falling apart, you and yours will keep standing and waxing stronger!

·         You are blessed and anointed for success and significance!

Have a great week!

2009 – Our Year of Uncommon Increase

Beloved, the Lord gave us a prophetic word for 2009, as our year of Uncommon Increase. Now this is an unusual word because of the year we are in. This is the ninth year of the 21st century. Nine is so special because among other dimensions of its symbolism, it is the number of fruitfulness, meaning increase! How do we know that? There are nine gifts of the Holy Spirit, nine dimensions of the fruit of the Holy Spirit and it takes nine months of pregnancy and then comes delivery or fruitfulness or increase! See what God has in store for us? A year of Uncommon Increase! Praise the Lord! A podcast of the message is in the Resources section of our website, I ‘d encourage you to listen to it at your earliest convenience, see the link below:

http://www.kingdomgospel.org.uk/resources.html

 

~ A word for your week ~ Pro 29:18

Beloved, it’s a new year and so a new season in all our lives. However, the question I’d like to ask is, how are you approaching or starting your new season? Our text  today says “Where there is no vision, the people cast off restraint; but happy is he who   keeps the law” So true is this text that I cannot but ask if you have a vision, dream or goal for 2009? If you don’t, then, there is a risk that you will live your life carelessly, not really appreciating the fact that God has given you another year to maximise the potentials He has placed inside of you. You may call it New Year resolutions, but please have some goals or things that you believe God to achieve this year. It could be in any area or every area of your life. Life is a succession of journeys with goals, targets, visions and dreams to achieve. So, as you start your New Year, have some goals that you trust God for and guess what, our ever so faithful God will not let you down!

 

~ Prophetic blast ~

As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that…

·         God will give you a great start to the week, month and year!

·         The Lord shall guard and direct your steps now and for the rest of the year!

·         No weapon of man or the enemy formed against you shall prosper or succeed against you!

·         As you receive the prophetic word, may God flood your life with uncommon increase in every dimension

·         This year shall be your best yet!

·         This year, you shall be blessed and distinguished among many!

 

Have a great week!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! In just four days, we shall be in 2009! Happy New Year! So, how was your 2008? Did you set some goals you wanted to accomplish? Did you have any specific project you intended to complete in 2008? How did it go? Good or not so good? Regardless, of what your experience was, do not despair, especially if you have unaccomplished goals and uncompleted projects, God is graciously giving you more time to accomplish those goals and projects. Praise God for the New Year and happy New Year!

 

~ A word for your week ~ Eccl 9:11

Beloved, from our text, the race of life is not necessarily won because of one’s speed, strength, wisdom or understanding. Rather, we win because God gives us time for the race and creates opportunities for us during the race. 2009 is a new season in time in which I believe God will create for us opportunities that could be defining moments.  The point is God is giving us 2009, a new season, in time, for us to pursue the dreams and visions He has put inside of us. Destiny is in fulfilling God’s purpose and assignment for our lives and we need time to do so. That is why I praise God for the New Year, believing God that He will create for us those defining opportunities we need to fulfil His assignments. That is how I see 2009, but how do you see it? Is it another year to pursue your personal agendas? However you presently see 2009, I’d like to encourage you to approach it with God’s plan and purpose for your life foremost in your mind. God gives us time not necessarily for us to do what we like, but to do what He desires of us and when there is willingness to do so, He creates the opportunities that we need. That is why I say happy 2009 and hope you will recognise your God inspired moments or opportunities when they happen for you! I pray that 2009 will be a defining year for you! Happy New Year!!!

 

~ Prophetic blast ~

As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that…

·         Your week shall be one of joy, rejoicing and walking in the peace and comfort of the Holy Spirit!

·         In this season of change, may God bring you into a new season of pursuing His plans and purposes for your life!

·         God will grant you great testimonies to evidence your change!

·         As a new year starts this week, God shall grant you newness in every dimension of your life!

·         Your new year, 2009, shall be far greater that your old year!

·         You are blessed and anointed for success and significance!

 

Have a great ‘New Year’ week!

Merry Christmas

It is here again, upon us, Christmas! That time of the year when the whole world celebrate the birth of our soon coming King. While many celebrate a Christ that they do not know, we celebrate not just His birth but Him. Of course His birth means a lot to us but our celebration does not stop at His birth, it goes further to His life, death, burial, resurrection, ascension and His soon second coming! That is the reason I wish you a Christ-filled Christmas, today, tomorrow and until He returns! Merry Christmas!

 

~ A word for your week ~  John 3:16

Beloved, at Christmas time, one major tradition is the exchange of gifts. Our text says that “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. God gave His only begotten Son as a gift to the world. His birth really is the first Christmas and that is why 2008 years later we are still giving and exchanging gifts. Every gift has a purpose to it. God’s gift of His Son is that the world through Him might be saved, and as many as would believe in Him shall be saved. Sadly, millions, I dare say, billions around the world celebrate Christmas but refuse the most important gift of all, the Christ. The true meaning of Christmas today should be a reminder of the eternal gift from God by which recipients can be saved. Yes, while we may go on holidays and indulge in other celebrations at Christmas time, it is all meaningless without the Christ of the Christmas. Christmas is about Him. No point in celebrating His birth and not inviting and having Him in your life. My encouragement to you today, is to make Jesus Christ the centre of your Christmas by receiving Him, the gift from God, into your life as Saviour and Lord! I have and so have billions around the world!

 

~ Prophetic blast ~

As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that…

·         Your week shall be one of joy, hope, faith and walking in the graces and mercies of Almighty God!

·         At this Christmas time, you will find fulfilment and contentment as you make Christ the centre of your season!

·         Your Christmas shall be the envy of others!

·         As you celebrate Him this season, many shall be drawn to Him!

·         Your celebration of the Christ of the season shall not be in vain, heaven and earth shall celebrate you too!

·         Your season shall be filled God’s goodness, favours and blessings!

 

Have a great week!

Thanksgiving 2008, what a service?

Last Sunday was a special one for us; it was our Thanksgiving 2008 celebration service. My gratitude to everyone for all their efforts and contributions to what was a very good service. My appreciation too to all our friends and family members that came to support and rejoice with us. The service was indeed glorious! The presence of the Lord was all over us. The praise and worship was awesome and the ministry of the word was simply the best! People gave generously and we had a great time afterwards at the reception. In all, our great God glorified His name, we were ministered to, and blessed at that, and had fun in church! Boy, I can’t wait for Thanksgiving 2009! Bring it on!

 

~ A word for your week ~ Matt 6:25-34

Beloved, our text this week encourages us not to worry or become anxious, particularly in these times of economic depression, about our lives regarding what we shall eat, drink or wear. The text boasts that God decorates nature with all its beauty, using the birds of the air that can neither sow nor reap and how God looks after them. By worrying we do not help matters and do not help ourselves. The text again uses the flowers of the field as an example. Flowers do not worry about whether they will grow or not, yet they grow easily and every where possible. But what is the key to all this for us? Verse 33 says for us to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness! We are not to be like the gentiles whose focus is the pursuit of these things. We are to make God and His kingdom our focus so that God will bring to us what the gentiles are busy pursuing. And guess what? God knows that we have need of these things, so be rest assured God knows the times we are in and as His own, He will look after us! We are more valuable than the birds and flowers! God will provide for us! Do not be of little faith, trust Him, He is able, dependable and very faithful!

 

~ Prophetic blast ~

As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that…

·         Your week shall be one of peace, joy and walking in the graces and mercies of Almighty God!

·         The Lord shall provide for you and your own in every dimension of life!

·         As you have put your faith in Him, the Lord shall glorify His name in your life and you will never be put to shame!

·         You are blessed and highly favoured!

 

Have a great week!

Thanksgiving 2008

What is it and why are we doing it? Thanksgiving 2008 is about celebrating God’s goodness and faithfulness to us as His people. I don’t know about you, God has been good to me and my family and certainly kingdom Gospel Church. Where could we go and where would we be without Him? We have set aside today and specifically this service to thank Him for the many great things He has done, is doing now and will do for us tomorrow. Please join me and the many others here today to thank Him, He is worthy and deserves more that we can ever give Him!

 

~ A word for your week ~ Psalm 107:1-9

Beloved, our text this morning encourages us to give thanks to the LORD for He is good and His mercy endures forever, meaning His mercy has no limit, it is forever, eternal. ”Let the redeemed of the Lord say so” the text says and who are the redeemed? You and I.  And why should we say so? Because He has redeemed us from the hand, the grip or clutch of the enemy, who had us all over the place, with no direction or destiny, hungry, thirsty and fainting until God came and delivered us. He led us by the right way, gave us direction to a place of dwelling that He had prepared for us, a place called destiny! This is why verses 8 and 9 say “Oh that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.”

 

~ Prophetic blast ~

As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that…

·         Your week shall be one of praise, joy and rejoicing and the joy of the Lord shall be your strength!

·         As you celebrate God for His goodness and faithfulness, so shall God cause men to celebrate you!

·         Your gratitude to God shall open the door for more of His blessings into your life!

·         As you give God thanks, your tank shall always be full!

·         Your gratitude and thanksgiving shall distinguish you amongst many!

 

Have a great week!
