In The Bible are promises precious beyond measures to us Children of The Most High God.

2-Peter_1-4: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust

In The Bible are promises precious beyond measure to us children of the most high God, because I have found that God always stands behind them solidly, unwaveringly, as surely as the sun rises and the tides ebb and flow.

 

Philippians_1-6-1: Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. God Is Good

The particular promises that follow are a part of the fabric of my life. Each of them represents a milestone in my personal history. I share them with you as the gold they are.

 

  1. When I need guidance:

“Know Him in all your paths, and He will keep your ways straight” (Proverbs 3:6).

 

  1. When the answer to prayer seems slow in coming:

“Steady patience is what you need, so that after doing the will of God you may receive what you were promised” (Hebrews 10:36).

 

  1. When I have sinned and need forgiveness:

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

 

  1. When I’m lonely and long to feel Christ’s presence:

“Look! I’m standing at the door and knocking. If any hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to be with them, and will have dinner with them, and they will have dinner with me” (Revelation 3:20).

 

  1. When I do not feel good enough to be acceptable to God:

“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God—not because of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9).

 

  1. When I am tempted:

“…God is faithful. He won’t allow you to be tempted beyond your abilities. Instead, with the temptation, God will also supply a way out so that you will be able to endure it” (I Corinthians 10:13).

 

  1. When I need physical strength and good health:

 “If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you… He will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit which dwells in you” (Romans 8:11).

 

  1. When I wonder if God understands what I’m up against:

“But Jesus the Son of God is our great High Priest who has gone to heaven itself to help us; therefore let us never stop trusting Him. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses since He had the same temptations we do, though He never once gave way to them and sinned” (Hebrews 4:14, 15).

 

  1. When troubles multiply:

“… we triumph even in our troubles, knowing that trouble produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope—a hope which never disappoints us, since God’s love floods our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us” (Romans 5:3, 5).

 

  1. How I know there is life after death:

“… I am the one who raises the dead and gives them life again. Anyone who believes in Me, even though he dies like anyone else, shall live again. He is given eternal life for believing in Me and shall never perish” (John 11:25, 26).

 

 

 

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

Producing Children Of God. Sermon By Pastor E A Adeboye

Romans_10-17: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God

Romans_10-17: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God

Memorise:

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 10:17

 

Read: 1 John 3:1-3

1  Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.   

2  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.   

3  And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

 

 

Message

Children of God are produced by the power in the Word of God. The reason why it seems genuine children of God are scarce nowadays despite the increase in the number of churches and increase in church attendance is because the Church is suffering from a famine of the genuine Word of God. It is by faith that we become genuine children of God. However, this faith does not come by the wisdom of man; neither does it come by the philosophical sayings of the learned or the motivational words of orators. 1 Corinthians 2:4-5 says:

 “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

 

The world, especially devotees of certain religions, still wonder up till now how it is possible for a human being to claim that he or she is a child of God. Such people look at divine paternity with the mind of the flesh, and so they cannot understand or accept the mystery of adoption which empowers us to become sons of God through Christ Jesus. Even to us who have been conferred this prestigious status of being children of God, it is still a mystery. John the beloved expressed this mystery with awe in 1 John 3:1:

 “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”

 

The Word of God came to Mary and produced the Son of God, when she had not known any man (Luke 1:30-35). This is a template for us. The mystery of divine adoption lies in the Word of God. For us to produce children of God from children of disobedience, we need to expose them to the undiluted Word of God that will produce the required faith for their adoption. Romans 10:17 says:

 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

We should therefore follow the pattern of the early apostles, who produced children of God through the Word of God. We see this manifested in Acts 4:4:

 “Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.”

 

Key Point:

There is power in numbers. For the kingdom of God to be firmly established on earth, there must be a tremendous increase in the number of God’s children.
