Daily Devotional for Saturday 7th December

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES

SATURDAY, 7TH DECEMBER.


UNDERSTANDING CHRISTIANITY

But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).

There’re those who aren’t sure what Christianity really is. So, they suffer from an identity crisis, because they don’t know who they are. It’s the same reason some get sick and afflicted, always seeking medical attention. Now, someone may wonder, “Are you saying Christians aren’t supposed to be sick?”


Yes, Christians aren’t supposed to be sick! The Christian has eternal life, and that life is superior to sickness, decay, and death. It’s the same life that Jesus had when He walked the earth. Jesus was never sick. That same supernatural life, which is absolutely infection and disease-proof, is what He’s given to us. Hallelujah! Now you can further understand why He said in Mark 16:17-18, “These signs shall follow those who believe; if they drink anything deadly, they’ll not be hurt.” Jesus said so, and He never lied to anybody.

The Christian belongs in God’s class; he’s not a mere religious person. Christianity isn’t a religion at all; it’s the active life of God in a human being. Christianity is Christ alive in you; it’s a real relationship with the real and living Christ. In Christianity, the divine life of Jesus Christ is imparted to you; it’s a real experience. Christ took up His abode in you the instant you were born again.

When you really get to know this, every day of your life, you’ll be so full of joy! The Apostle Peter talked about the joy that we have and exude as Christians: it’s indescribable and full of glory. Why wouldn’t it be, when you were born to express and manifest the glory and righteousness of Christ? Why wouldn’t it be, when you’re joined to the Lord; inseparably one with Him?

How then could sickness, lack, discouragement, depression, be normal with you? Those are things that the people of the world suffer; but you’re different! Philippians 2:12 says, “…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Make your Christianity real by “living” it. The Word won’t work until you work it. You’re the one to work things out, by His power working in you. Take a hold of the Word, and live by it, and your life will be excellent and full of glory.

CONFESSION

Christ is alive in me! I’m not ordinary, for I’ve been called into the fellowship of the God-kind. Therefore, every day, I manifest the pulsating life of Christ, exercising dominion over sickness, disease, failure, lack and everything that’s of the devil! Hallelujah!

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DATE: SATURDAY 7TH DECEMBER 2019

THEME: WHAT TYPE OF SHEPHERD?

MEMORISE:

But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 2 Timothy 4:5

READ: Acts 20:28-35

28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

33 I have coveted no man's silver, or gold, or apparel.

34 Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.

35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

MESSAGE

A careful study of God’s word reveals three categories of shepherds. There are bad shepherds whose defining trait is feeding on the sheep. There are unrepentant agents of the devil, who are actually wolves in sheep’s clothing. The Holy Spirit describes them as ruthless grievous in today’s Bible reading, and God’s judgement is declared against them in Jeremiah 23:1-2. The second category of shepherds are those referred to as hirelings by the Lord (John 10:12-13). Shepherds in this category see their assignment as a form of business through which their daily bread is guaranteed. They have little or no commitment to their sheep, and so their productivity is very low. Lastly, we have the good shepherds, who’s live and attitude to the assignment of overseeing God’s sheep are modelled after the Good Shepherd Himself. As expressed in John 10:11-14, God has clearly showed His preference and desire for good shepherds.

Has God called you into a spiritual office in His Church, or are you in a position where your decisions affect the destiny of many people? God is saying to you today that your call to that office is not for the purpose of accumulating titles or enjoying a privileged position only. You are actually called to serve God. You are called to be a blessing to others by the workings of God’s gifts in your life. Today, it is evident that some people are not utilizing the spiritual office they occupy for the benefit of God’s Kingdom. If you have been called as a pastor, your responsibility is to care for the physical and spiritual needs of the Church of God you oversee. Are you an evangelist, a preacher or a messenger of the true gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ? You ought to declare the entire counsel of God at all times, knowing well that we live in times when many people are departing from faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and various doctrines of the devil. The word of the Lord in your mouth should not be watered down under any circumstance. Also, as a teacher of God’s word, you have been gifted by the Holy Spirit to explain God’s word in order to build and equip the Church. You are to communicate biblical truths effectively, to the understanding of your hearers. Are you occupying the office of a prophet? Then declare the word of God to the people with boldness. Spiritual offices are meant to complement one another in edifying the Body of Christ. These offices are meant to work together for the unity of the Church, so that God’s people can become well grounded in the full knowledge of God. Every good shepherd will be handsomely rewarded, because our God does not owe any man (1 Corinthians 15:58). You will not lose your reward in Jesus’ Name.

PRAYER POINT:

Father, help me to model my service after the Good Shepherd, in Jesus’ Name.


BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 88-91
Habakkuk 2:2-20

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

HYMN 5: LET OTHERS SEE JESUS IN YOU.
1. While passing thro' this world of sin,
and others your life shall view,
Be clean and pure without, within;
Let others see Jesus in you.

Refrain:
Let others see Jesus in you,
Let others see Jesus in you.
Keep telling the story, be faithful and true;
Let others see Jesus in you.

2. Your life's a book before their eyes,
They're reading it thro' and thro'
Say, does it point them to the skis,
Do others see Jesus in you?

Refrain

3. Then live for Christ both day and night,
Be faithful, be brave and true,
and lead the lost to life and Christ.
Let others see Jesus in you.

Refrain

*MORNING TEA☕*

*SATURDAY 7 DECEMBER 2019?*

*GREATER THAN THE PAST⚓*

*TODAY’S SCRIPTURE?*
"The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house," says the *LORD* Almighty. "And in this place I will grant peace," declares the *LORD* Almighty.
_*(Haggai 2:9, NIV)*_

_*Haggai 2:9 KJV*_
The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the *LORD* of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the *LORD* of hosts.

*TODAY’S WORD?*
GOD wants to amaze you with His goodness! We are living in a day when GOD is increasing His favor. Maybe you have seen GOD’s goodness to a certain degree in the past; but in reality, you haven’t seen anything yet! GOD has favor in your future that will supersede anything that you’ve seen! The Scripture talks about how the glory of the latter day will be greater than the glory of the former day. That means what GOD did for your parents or grandparents, He’s going to surpass in your generation. The blessing and favor of past generations were good, but we serve a GOD of increase! He has greater things in store for your future!

Today, get your hopes up! Enlarge your vision. Be expecting GOD to bring opportunities across your path. Be expecting to meet the right people and get the right breaks. Prepare your heart and mind to receive the increase and expect to see greater things in your future!

*A PRAYER FOR TODAY?*
Father, thank You for blessing and increasing me. I believe that You have great things in store for my future. I surrender every area of my mind, will and emotions to you in *JESUS*’ name. Amen.

SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE

SATURDAY, 07/12/2019

TOPIC: WINNING THE BATTLES OF LIFE

SCRIPTURE:No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Roman 8:37.


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The greater your mantle, the greater your battle; the stronger your persuasion, the stronger your confrontation
It is a known fact that life is full of battles. This was why God’s servant, Papa Bishop David Oyedepo once said, ‘Life is a battlefield and not a playground.’ Life is warfare and not funfair (Ephesians 6:12).

The battles of life, many times, do not serve notices; whether you are ready to fight or not, fight will look for you. So, to exist casually is to end as casualty; to walk through life unprepared is to end as a prey.
The fact is:

*The devil does not fight a nonentity; the devil dares whom he dreads.
*The greater your mantle, the greater your battle; the stronger your persuasion, the stronger your confrontation; the higher your flight, the tougher your fight.

That was why Satan fought to kill Moses and our Master Jesus even as infants (Exodus 1:15-22) and (Mathew 2:1-13) respectively.

Beloved, in case you are in any battle currently, congratulations, the devil fears you. For you, victory is assured because the triumph of Jesus is the guarantee of our victory. (Romans 8:37).

But to conquer the confrontations of life, you must surrender your life and the battles to Jesus.
Today, I prophesy that what the devil is afraid of in your life must happen to him. In this month of December, your victory is mandatory and your triumph shall be effortless, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: The greater your mantle, the greater your battle; the stronger your persuasion, the stronger your confrontation.

ASSIGNMENT (S)
1. Completely rely on the strength of Jesus Christ for victory in your life’s battles.
2. At times, the area of your battle is the area of your mantle and what you suffer determines what you can offer. So, be sensitive enough to be a blessing to your generation in that area in times of victory.

For Further Understanding, Get This Message: Power to Rise above Negative Limitations
PRAYER: Lord, I thank You for Your Word to me today. I make demands on the mantle to tackle the battles and confrontations of my life. I receive my victory through Christ, in Jesus’ Name.

DAILY READING: Hosea 6:1 to 9:17, 3 John 1 to 15,Psalm 126:1 to 6, Proverbs 29:12 to 14
QUOTE: Let us stop celebrating vanity; let us start celebrating reality. The demons do not respond to tittles; they respond to mantles. Culled from Thou art my battle Axe by Dr Paul Enenche.

AMAZING FACT: More people go to church on Sunday in China than in the whole of Europe.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: A heavier mantle to tackle your current battles is released upon you now, in Jesus’ Name

OUR DAILY MANNA DEVOTIONAL BOOKLET FOR CHAMPIONS

DATE: SATURDAY 7TH DECEMBER, 2019

TOPIC: QUIT NOTICE DAY!

BASIC SCRIPTURE: (ISAIAH 53:1-6)

Welcome to today’s devotional encounter with Jesus Christ, the Lamb that was slain. One of the most important things you need to discover in life is to FIND OUT WHAT JESUS CHRIST HAS DONE FOR YOU. When you know what He has done for you, you will know what you have rights to, and you will be able to live the life of victory that Jesus has purchased for you.

Then you can ISSUE A DAILY QUIT NOTICE to the owners of any other thing – EVIL LOADS! Today’s scripture AGAIN tells us one of those things that He has done. Verse 4: “…He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows.”

Notice that it says, “He has.” It did not say, “He will bear our griefs.” It’s something that has already been done. Alleluia!!! This means that YOU DON’T HAVE TO BEAN ANY KIND OF SICKNESS OR SATANIC YOKE AGAIN. Whatever is not from your Father God is your enemy, and that is why Jesus came to deal with it.

I don’t know how your year has been! I don’t know what you have been struggling with for so many years. You have prayed and fasted and asked God to ‘take this sickness away.’ I want you to change your perspective today. HE HAS DEALT WITH IT! That is what the Bible says.

So, what you need to do now is to take those verses (Isaiah 53:4-5), and use them to ISSUE A QUIT NOTICE TO THAT INFIRMITY, SATANIC HOLD, SICKNESS, CAREER STAGNATION, FINANCIAL CONFUSION, THAT HAS ATTACHED ITSELF TO YOUR LIFE AND MINISTRY!

Yes! Issue a quit notice! A quit notice backed by the power of the living God. Reject WHATEVER your God has not planted. UPROOT it now! UPROOT it daily!
It takes a year to prepare for the January World Anointing Night; let God use you! People’s testimonies shall provoke your own. Sow your World Anointing Night seed into this banks:

MANNA MIRACLE MOUNTAIN MINISTRY(JWAN) UBA ACC. N0: 1015310823 or any account on page 29 of ODM.

PRAYER POINTS: Take any song of victory as led now.
1. In your own words, pray over today’s word as led now.
2. Father, open my eyes to see the revelation of what You have done for me through Jesus. Every demonic plan to make me die in ignorance and shame, be scattered in Jesus name.
3. I give a QUIT NOTICE to the following issues of my life and destiny. I attack your ROOT NOW (mention them now).
4. Jesus Christ has done it all and given me AUTHORITY! Therefore I command WHATEVER my Father has not planned: BE UPROOTED NOW in Jesus name (Pray it seriously). Pray about today as led now.

The 2020 ODM and “War Against Haman – 15” booklets are out! Give them out as Christmas/New Year gift items. Get your copies from any bookshop now! Give to Family/Friends this month! The “War Against Haman-15” booklet contains the 2020 January 21-day fasting prayers

CHRIST APOSTOLIC CHURCH

THE LIVING WATER {July ~ Dec., 2019}

DAILY DEVOTIONAL GUIDE
Saturday, December 7, 2019

TOPIC: ANGELS AND DIVINE AUTHORITY
Read Psalm 91:1-11

1. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6. Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10. There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

MEMORISE: For He shall give angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways (Psalm 91:11)

EXPOSITION

God is the highest authority in heaven, on earth and under the earth. He gives the final charge and has the final say over all things, over our lives.

No Satan, demons and principalities have any say over our lives, but God. He gives commands, charges, instructions, directives and decrees that must be obeyed.

This is the more reason that every decree that does not come from God will not come to pass over your marriage, finance and destiny, in the mighty name of Jesus (cf. Lam. 3:37). God gives charge to His angels, because of the saints. The force and power behind the fulfilment of such charges, is the level of your obedience to God.

If the angels obey God, who are you to disobey Him and still expect His commands to be effective in your life?
Angels fly by authority from God. They do not do anything on their own. They move and run with divine authority from God, on behalf of the saints.

They run with authority. The source of the authority is the living God. Who is the source of your authority, at home and in the ministry? The authority of the angels cannot be resisted by any power on earth. Trust God today, and His Son, Jesus Christ.

Jesus says, 'All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth' (Matt. 28:18). It is high time you began to claim the ministry of the angels and enforce God's authority for them to stand and show up for you, today and always.

They speak, bless, move, bring to live and kill by the authority given to them from God. They can help you above your expectations. Call on God, today, and not on angels, to send His angels because of you, with divine authority and they shall deliver your blessings to you. Amen.

PRAYER POINTS

1. Father, give Your angels divine authority to visit me with Your immeasurable blessings, now.
2. Father, give Your angels divine authority to come and fight for me, now.
3. Father, let Your angels with Your authority defend our nation against all principalities and powers militating against it and Your gospel, in the name of Jesus.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Ezekiel 42:18 - 45:2; 1 John 2:26 - 3:17
