Heroes of Faith (Abel)

Image may contain: 1 person, standing and text
Speaker: Pastor Wilson Akubo
Scripture: Hebrews 11:1-7; Genesis 4: 1-4
This is one of the most important messages you will ever hear in your life. We are talking about the heroes of faith. In the past few weeks, We have been telling you to make a decision to walk by faith. We are continuing today with Heroes of Faith and we will start with the Abel Example God took time to write these things down in the Bible for us to learn (Romans 15:4). It is written that Cain and Abel were the sons of Adam and Eve. Cain was a farmer while Abel was an animal keeper. Both siblings brought offerings to God. The bible said that God respected Abel's offering and accepted it but rejected Cain's offering.

Do Not Lose Heart

The life of Joseph is a perfect example of how life’s disappointments can actually be detours in disguise. At 17 years of age, God gave him a series of dreams that told him that one day, he would rule over his brothers. He told his brothers about his dreams and, in their jealousy and anger, they threw him in a deep pit and left him for dead. Shortly thereafter, he was sold off into slavery. While serving, he was falsely accused of raping his master’s wife and was thrown into prison. All totaled, Joseph spent 13 years enduring one disappointment after another before God brought him out of the pit into the palace of Pharaoh. Why would He put him through all that?

Those disappointments were places in Joseph’s life where God needed to prepare the man for the destiny and the destiny for the man. As a 17-year-old, he wasn’t ready for all that God had in store for him. God also needed to set the stage for Joseph’s arrival; it wasn’t until Pharaoh had his own dreams and could find no one in his kingdom to interpret them that God delivered Joseph from prison and into his destiny. His disappointments, were in fact, blessings. He acknowledges this when he tells his brothers, “You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result” (Genesis 50:20).

You also have a destiny. Maybe you’ve been waiting for God to bring you into it, but lately it seems as though you’re going nowhere or stuck in a rut. It looks like you’re moving further away from this destiny and in those moments, disappointment can set in. Do not lose heart; God hasn’t forgotten about you, He’s just not taking you there in a straight line.

Title: The Substance of Faith

Speaker: Pastor Sarah Omakwu
From Mk 9:23, if you have not received your desire it means you have not believed enough.
Faith is a substance, it's a tool. The fact that you have faith for salvation means you have faith for anything else else.
Faith does mighty things. By faith the walls of Jericho fell- these walls were impregnable. It means nothing is too tall, big or impregnable to fall. It means poverty, family problems etc will fall. No matter the problem or curse, faith can remove it.
By faith the worlds were framed- God created 'worlds' not 'world'. He created worlds of water, the firmaments, animals etc It means you can frame your worlds of peace, prosperity, healing etc by faith. You can design and create your desired world by faith.
By faith they obtained good testimonies- testimonies are armaments or weapons of faith. At the end of every work of faith there must be a finished project. Faith finishes what it starts, and just as God declared his creation to be good, the result of your faith will be good. David brought down Goliath on the basis of 2 testimonies; the testimony that God helped him kill the lion and the bear. If you have any testimonies in your past it means you can have more.
By faith they stopped the mouth of lions and quenched the raging of fire- don't allow anyone intimidate or stress you.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for Righteousness sake

SPEAKER: Pastor Sarah Omakwu
SCRIPTURE: Matt.5: 1-12; 1 Peter 3: 13-17
We have come to the final installment of the series on Beatitudes. Today, I will be talking about the blessedness of persecution Matt. 5:10.
After practicing all the Beatitudes you would expect the last Beatitude to be sweet relief but Jesus caps it with persecution. Jesus warns us that there will be persecution. So living the beatitudes will not earn us congratulations but persecution. Though Jesus was meek, humble and righteous He was persecuted and called names, He was also berated, despised, mocked, Beaten, spat upon and crucified for being good. “Blessed are you when you are persecuted”.
Blessed means ‘Happy’. The Happy referred to here is not a temporal feeling of wellbeing, Rather it’s the peace that comes from an assurance that God is in control. It is a feeling that cannot be explained but experienced. Being blessed is a settled matter in your heart that all will be well with you. Have you noticed there is hardly any persecution in our daily personal experience today? That is simply because our Christianity is not an offense to unbelievers anymore It means we are no different from unbelievers in our speech, dress and actions We tolerate their smoking and lewd jokes because we don’t want to offend We hide our virginity to avoid ridicule We wear short and revealing clothes We share the proceeds of corruption with them We have become afraid of making a stand for Christ publicly .
