Revival Through Retreat. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Psalms_51-10: Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me
Psalms_51-10: Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me

Memorise

Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? –
Psalms 85:6

Read

1 Kings 19:4-8 (KJV)
4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.
5 And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat.
6 And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again.
7 And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.
8 And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.

MESSAGE

All human beings have an intense desire to connect to God. One vital element that is required to connect to God is a nice quite atmosphere, devoid of daily concerns, where one can ruminate over spiritual truths. Meanwhile, it is often difficult to create such within the unrelenting activities of one’s daily life. This is why a retreat comes in handy. A spiritual retreat could be defined as a sustained period of quite, uninterrupted time for a person to be reflective and receptive in God’s Presence. It offers a time to leave daily concerns, to connect with one’s spiritual self, and to be attentive to the needs of one’s soul and spirit. People seeking for a time of retreat often locate a retreat centre or a specific geographical place that offers an atmosphere conducive for quiet reflection. The search for spiritual retreats has taken many to prayer Mountains and remote solitary places.
Mount Carmel is best known as the site Elijah battled against the prophets of Baal. However, the fact that Elijah and Elisha frequently return to Mount Carmel is an indication that they were using the mountain for spiritual retreat. The overall purpose of a spiritual retreat is to be transformed in whatever manner God chooses. Withdrawing to a place of spiritual retreat is to be transformed in whatever manner God chooses. Withdrawing to a place of spiritual retreat offers a time for refreshment and nourishment of life, a time to experience a continual sense of God’s presence that could become a constant reality in everyday life. Act 3:19 says
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;”
Therefore, a time of spiritual retreat is a time for sober reflection, repentance, rededication, revival and rejuvenation. The book of 1 Kings 18:20-46 showed us the structure and pattern of spiritual retreat. First, Elijah rebuilt the ruined altar to YAHWEH, symbolising repentance and rededication of Israel to God. Then, he dug a trench around the altar and poured 12 jars of water on the sacrifice, the wood, and the altar, filling the trench, symbolising the activities of the spirit. Finally, he called on YAHWEH, who answered immediately by fire that consumed the whole sacrifice, including the water, the wood, the stones of the altar. This was immediately followed by heavy rains after three and half years of drought. There was great celebration as the people rejoiced in the Lord for a time of refreshing. A spiritual retreat always leads to celebration.
A spiritual retreat is also used to pursue personal holiness and to stay connected to God. Several passages in the Gospels according to Saint Mark and Matthew, give the account of Jesus retreating to pray. This point out the importance of spiritual retreat to Christians. Every child of God, as a matter of necessity, must constantly create time for spiritual retreat, seeking the face of the Lord for cleansing, renewal, rededication, and spiritual empowerment.

Prayer Point

Father, please revive me again, that I may experience a time of refreshing from above in Jesus name. Amen!

 

Matthew 23:37-25:30

Job 15:17-21

Isaiah_40-31: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint
Isaiah_40-31: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint

Clarion Call. Christian Life Is Not A World Of Comfort And Ease

Philippians_3-14: I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians_3-14: I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

By Jack Graham

And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”

Luke 9:23

I read awhile ago a statistic that said 47 percent of the people who live in the state of Texas attend church regularly. That’s nearly half of an entire state! Somebody said there are more churchgoers in Texas than people! Yet, that statistic saddens me because despite having so many who claim to be Christians in the area in which I live, our faith has very little influence on our population.

What’s happened to the Church? Well for one, the Church has retreated. No longer is the Church fearless, but they’re playing it safe, avoiding confrontation at all costs. They’re scared that someone’s going to be offended. They’re afraid someone is going to put them down. And as a result, churches across our nation have moved into the safety zone.

Now this is a heart issue that lies within each individual Christian. So many buy into the world’s lies that it doesn’t really matter what you believe about God as long as it makes you happy. But as believers, we simply can’t escape the clarion call in our lives to deny ourselves, take up our crosses daily, and follow Christ.

The Christian life isn’t a world of comfort and ease—it’s not a cruise ship. Instead, it’s a battleship—a lifelong fight against the enemy to win souls for the Kingdom of God. So if you’re searching for comfort in life, change your focus to serving the One who is Life!

Instead of seeking comforts in life, give yourself daily in service for the one who is life.

Ephesians_6-13: Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand
Ephesians_6-13: Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand

Today, No Matter Where I Am, I Stand Boldly Before The Throne Of Grace Knowing That I Am Forgiven

Today, No Matter Where I Am, I Stand Boldly Before The Throne Of Grace Knowing That I Am Forgiven

Luke_6-37: Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven
Luke_6-37: Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven

“To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?”

1 Corinthians 5:5-6 (KJV)

Sin is so deadly that the devil effectively uses it to keep the believer in bondage. Sin humiliates, embarrasses, and destroys. It destroys the relationship between God and man. Sin robs a person of his confidence towards God and against Satan. Sin is like a blood red stain on a white cloth that screams at you. But thank God for the finished work of Calvary. Thank God for the blood that washes away every sin and allows us to stand boldly without blemish before God.

Child of God, the only hold the devil has on you is the hold of sin. That is why he will constantly remind you of your past. He knows that there is nothing else he can hold you down with. He knows that if he cannot mess with your mind he cannot get you. So he will constantly wield the power of condemnation. That is why Jesus came to disarm him. He came to be your righteousness. He took your place on the cross. He became sin so that you can be the righteousness of God in Christ. He took the full punishment. He was wounded for your transgression and bruised for your iniquities. All of your sins, past, present, and future, have been nailed to the cross. You stand before God discharged and acquitted; there is no chance for the devil to appeal. This is a deadly blow to the devil. He does not want you to realise this fact, so he constantly tries to hoodwink you. But today that hold is broken in Jesus’ name.

The truth is that as long as you see yourself as a sinner rather than the righteousness of God you will never fulfil God’s purpose. Jesus knew that we were helpless as long as Satan had his armour, so He paid the full price. Jesus took from the devil all he had used to hold man down with and He gave man liberty. Today, no matter where I am, I stand boldly before the throne of grace knowing that I am forgiven. And this completely disarms the devil and gives me victory.

Hallelujah! Satan has been disarmed (Colossians 2:13-15, TLB). Go about your business as if sin never existed.

Psalm 32:1-2

Romans 4:1-8

Isaiah 62-64

1 Timothy 1

Thank You Jesus!

2-Corinthians_5-17: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new

My Salvation Is Won. My Sins Are All Forgiven. Hallelujah. Thank You Jesus.

My Salvation Is Won. My Sins Are All Forgiven. Hallelujah! Thank You Jesus

Acts_4-12: Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Acts_4-12: Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

John 19:30
So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

Jesus cried out, “It is finished!” You cannot complete a completed work. You cannot finish a finished work. Our salvation is won. Our sins are all forgiven. We are made forever righteous by His blood. Christ paid completely and perfectly for our total forgiveness, righteousness and every blessing!

In fact, these three words, “It is finished”, come from one Greek word teleo. In the days of Jesus, a servant would use it when reporting to his master: “I have completed the work assigned to me.” (John 17:4) The word means, “It is finished, it stands finished and it will always be finished!” Perhaps the most significant meaning of teleo is how it is used by merchants: “The debt is paid in full!” When Jesus gave Himself on the cross, He met fully the righteous demands of the law. He paid our debts in full!

Today, it is not our works that will bring us the blessings. It is Christ’s finished work. Christian living is not about doing, but believing in His finished work. Under the law, we must do. Under grace, it is done!

Maybe you are faced with overwhelming odds today. Jesus promises, “It is finished!” You are not going to be delivered because you have already been delivered. You are not going to be healed because you are already the healed! God healed you 2,000 years ago! Isaiah 53:5 declares, “By His stripes you are healed!” You are already pregnant with healing. Keep resting in His finished work and it will manifest!

My friend, the work is finished. The victory is won. Our blessings have been bought by His blood! Live life knowing that there is nothing for you to do—only believe! It is finished!

Thank You Jesus!

Romans_1-16: For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek

Nigeria on Friday unveiled a nine-metre tall statue of Jesus Christ carved from white marble, thought to be the biggest of its kind in Africa.

Standing barefoot with arms outstretched, the “Jesus de Greatest” statue weighs in at 40 tonnes.

More than 100 priests and hundreds of Catholic worshippers attended the nine-metre (30-foot) statue’s official unveiling in the village of Abajah in southeastern Nigeria.

It was commissioned by Obinna Onuoha, a local businessman who hired a Chinese company to carve it and placed it in the grounds of a 2000-capacity church that he built in 2012.

In his homily at a Mass before unveiling the statue, presiding bishop Augustine Tochukwu Okwuoma said it would be a “very great symbol of faith” for Catholic worshippers and passers-by alike.

 

“It will remind them of the importance of Jesus Christ,” said Okwuoma.

 

The cost of the statue has not been revealed.

 

Earlier in the week, Onuoha told AFP it would be “the biggest statue of Jesus on the continent.”

 

The 43-year-old boss of an oil and gas distribution company timed the statue’s unveiling to coincide with his parents’ 50th wedding anniversary.

 

Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country with 170 million people, is split between a more prosperous Christian south and a poor Muslim north — an occasional source of tension.

 

More than 17,000 people have been killed in Islamist group Boko Haram’s six-year quest to create an independent state but the violence has been mainly confined to Nigeria’s Muslim-majority north.

 

And even as Nigeria rings in 2016, the ever-present threat of violence by Boko Haram hangs heavy over the country, despite official claims that the battle against the Islamist group has been “technically” won.

 

“We think religions can exist side by side,” Onuoha said. “We hope that people can live in harmony.”

 

He said the idea of building a giant statue of Jesus came to him in a dream nearly 20 years ago.

 

And when his 68-year-old mother fell seriously ill a few years ago, she made him promise that he would build a church if she survived.

 

 

 

Thank You Jesus!

Jesus Christ The Savior Has Come And He Will Save You To The Uttermost!

Jesus Christ The Savior Has Come And He Will Save You To The Uttermost!

Luke_2-11: For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Luke_2-11: For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

Luke 2:10–11
Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

My friend, if all is silent and dark in your life now, and you feel like you have been left out in the cold, just know that Jesus came to be your Savior at such a time as this.

He was not born in the comfort of a warm, cozy room, but in a cold manger. There was no room for Him in the inn (Luke 2:7), so that there will always be room at the cross for your healing, deliverance, wholeness and provision, and a mansion in heaven waiting for you!

Jesus was born very quietly, so quietly that the Bible says that only a group of shepherds came to Him, while the rest of Bethlehem slept. (Luke 2:8–9) Like manna falling quietly from heaven in the Old Testament, the true bread from heaven came quietly. It was a silent night, but that was not all.

Jesus was also born during the darkest time in Israel’s history. Israel was under the tyrannical rule of the Romans. It was during this time, when everything was so dark, that Jesus was born. Beloved, He will come to you in the darkest period of your life.

On that cold and silent night, the shepherds were afraid when the angel of the Lord stood before them. But the angel said, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”

Beloved, it was not a judge or lawgiver who was born. It was a mighty Savior. He came to save His people. He came to save you and me. So even if you are in a cold, dark period of your life, don’t be afraid—the Savior has come and He will save you to the uttermost!

Isaiah_9-6: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isaiah_9-6: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

I Am The Righteousness Of God In Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!

“But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)”
Romans 10:6 (KJV)

God the Father is excited every time you confess your righteousness in Christ because He is reminded of the price paid by His Son in making you righteous. Your declaration of your righteousness in God (Romans 3:26) shows your appreciation of the finished work of Calvary. Jesus Himself rejoices because you are laying hold of what He did on the cross for your benefit. John 16:10 tells us that the Spirit convicts us of righteousness. So He is pleased that you are in agreement with Him. Notice that according to the above scripture, you give joy to the Godhead through your declaration of your righteousness, thereby aligning yourself with Matthew 6:33, which challenges us to seek God’s kingdom and His righteousness so that the things we need will be given to us.

When you acknowledge your righteousness in Jesus, you are putting the devil where he belongs, and this gives God delight. God is like the teacher watching his student display knowledge of the previously taught subject in class during a quiz or competition. Of course the teacher will be proud of his student. In the same way, God is proud of you when you stand in the knowledge of your righteousness in Him. Your action tells Him that you know your rights and privileges. And He can boast about you, knowing that the devil cannot intimidate or subject you to his ridicule and antics.

Each time you say you are the righteousness of God in Christ, you are saying that you are in right standing with God. Your simple confession of this fact builds boldness in you and gives you access to all that God has in store for you. You become like the child in his father’s house who knows that everything inside the building belongs to him. Such a child can move from store to store and from room to room freely because he knows his rights.

Whatever you need will be supplied, so never allow yourself to be intimidated. Declare every day that you are the righteousness of God in Christ.

Romans 5:17
2 Corinthians 5:21
Jeremiah 6-8
1 Timothy 5

Even In The Midst Of The Mess I Am Right Now, There Is Much More Grace Available To Help Me Bounce Back. Thank You Jesus

“Moreover where the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound”.
Romans 5:20 (KJV)

I am tired of believers living their lives as if sin is more powerful than what Jesus did for us on the cross. You constantly see believers cringing and crying for hours, pleading for mercy. I feel really weary when I see Bible-believing children of God cringing because of sin rather than standing tall. Understand that I am not validating sin. The Bible asks whether sin shall abound that grace may much more abound, and it also rightly answers that God forbids it. God does not expect you to deliberately live in sin because of grace. In fact, if you clearly understand the word “grace”, sin will be far from you. You will love God too much to do things that do not glorify Him.

Beloved, you may have missed the point yesterday or today but that does not make you a sinner. Remember that the fact that you passed through a garage does not make you a car. Falling into one sin or the other does not make you a sinner. You can never get rid of the sin in your life through self-effort or your own resolutions. You can make as many New Year’s resolutions as you want, but one thing is sure: it is the operation of the Holy Ghost that delivers us from sin. That is why Paul the Apostle in 2 Corinthians 3:18 said, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord” (KJV). When you see yourself the way you really are, then the Holy Ghost works in you to change you into what you are seeing.

Hear this: today’s text assures us that even in the midst of that mess you are in there is much more grace available to help you bounce back. Thank God that the price has already been paid.

I Shall Seek First The Kingdom Of God

I Shall Seek First The Kingdom Of God

“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”

Romans 14:17 (KJV)

In Matthew 6:33, Jesus challenges us to seek first the Kingdom of God in order for other things to be given to us. You will notice from our text that the kingdom is not about doing the work of the ministry or going to the mission field. It is not something that flows from the outside in; instead, it flows from the inside out. Remember that Jesus said the kingdom is within us (Luke 17:21).

Paul tells in our text that the kingdom is “[. . .] righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” (Romans 14:17, KJV).

1. Righteousness:
Not our own righteousness predicated on our works. It is a gift from Jesus, who has become our righteousness (Romans 5:17, 1 Corinthians 1:30). You must be established in the fact that you are now the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21).

2. Peace with God:
Because you are justified by faith you now have peace with God (Romans 5:1). And because you have peace with God, which means that God is not mad at you, you also have the peace of God, which passes all human understanding (Philippians 4:7). Jesus gave us peace (John 14:17). With your being established in peace with God, and with the peace of God, you now know that no matter what you’re facing everything will be alright.

3. Joy in the Holy Ghost:
Joy will always be your portion whenever you focus on the finished work of Jesus Christ on your behalf. He paid the price so that you could receive the benefits. What Joy this understanding will produce in your heart! Therefore, see your righteousness in Christ every day. See that all of your sins are forgiven and you will flow in peace and joy. That is what it means to flow in the kingdom of God.

Matthew 6:24-34

Jeremiah 50,

Hebrews 8

Gambia Is Now An Islamic Country! God Please Save Gambian Christians

Gambia Is Now An Islamic Country! God Please Save Gambian Christians

Gambia’s President Yahya Jammeh on Friday declared the formerly secular country an Islamic republic in a move he said was designed to distance the West African state further from its colonial past.

The tiny sliver of a country, named after the river from which British ships once allegedly fired cannonballs to fix its borders, joins the ranks of other Islamic Republics such as Iran and Afghanistan.

“In line with the country’s religious identity and values, I proclaim Gambia as an Islamic state,” said Jammeh on state television. “As Muslims are the majority in the country, the Gambia cannot afford to continue the colonial legacy,” he added.

Gambia’s population of 1.8 million people is 95 percent Muslim. He said that other citizens of other faiths would still be able to practise.

Jammeh, an animated orator who has earned the reputation for making surprise declarations over the course of his 21-year presidency, pulled Gambia out of the Commonwealth in 2013, calling it neo-colonial. In 2007, he claimed to have found a herbal cure for AIDS.

Despite strong commercial ties with Britain and other European countries whose citizens are regular visitors to Gambia’s white-sand beaches, relations with the West have deteriorated in recent years.

The European Union temporarily withheld aid money to the country last year over Gambia’s poor human rights record. Gambia, whose main industries are agriculture and tourism, ranks 165 out of 187 countries on the U.N. development index.

“Starved of development funds because of his deplorable human rights record and economic mismanagement, Jammeh is looking towards the Arab world as substitute for and source of development aid,” said blogger Sidi Sanneh, a former foreign minister who has become a U.S.-based dissident.

Please Pray For Gambian Christians!
