CONDUCT YOUR AFFAIRS WITH GODLY REVERENCE.

And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness (2 Peter 1:5-6).

Godliness in our opening text means piety or godly reverence. God wants you to have some piety in your life. He wants you to build a godly character with the Word. There’re some things you shouldn’t do, not because they’re bad in themselves, but because they’re not excellent. He wants you to be an example of a true Christian in the way you conduct yourself.

Even though Christianity isn’t essentially an outward show, in our opening verse, the Apostle Peter is dealing with an outward show—those actions that are seen as godly. There should be some calmness and spiritual decency in your life. Never be rough and brash—in your communication or attitude—because you’re always in the presence of God and in the presence of angels. Never use obscene or vulgar language.

Consciously say and do the right things, even when no one is watching. Have some piety, not only when you come to church. You’re an ambassador of Christ; you represent Christ. Reflect Him in your demeanour and in every aspect of your life.

Remember, you’re the symbol and embodiment of the glory, perfection, beauty, and righteousness of Christ. Therefore, conduct yourself, your life, accordingly: “…be an example (pattern) for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12 AMPC).

CONFESSION
I’m the symbol and embodiment of the glory, perfection, beauty, and righteousness of Christ. I’m an example of the believer in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. I set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

1 Timothy 4:7-8 But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself [rather] unto godliness. 8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

1 Timothy 6:10-11 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES FRIDAY, 29TH SEPTEMBER. PDF 🎁 http://bit.ly/2dZqtLQ.

TAKE YOUR PLACE AS AN INTERCESSOR.

Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both (Job 9:33).

Our opening verse shows that there was a day and time that man needed a “daysman,” a mediator, and there wasn’t any. Job needed one and there was none.

It reminds also of the words of Eli to his sons, in berating them for their atrocious acts. He said, “When you sin against a man, any man can come and intercede for you. But when you sin against God, who’ll entreat for you?” (Read 1 Samuel 2:25).

But thank God Jesus came! Isaiah 59:16 says, “And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.” God saw that there was no man, there was no intercessor, and sent the Lord Jesus, who today has sent us as the Father had sent Him (John 20:21).

Man isn’t helpless and hopeless today; he isn’t without an intercessor. We’re the ones called to intercede and see to it that God’s purpose, His perfect will is fulfilled in the earth and in the lives of men. He gave us the power, the ability, and the responsibility.

Paul, writing to Timothy in 1 Timothy 2:1 said, “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men.” Also, in Ephesians 6:18, he declared, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.”

As we pray in intercession, the Holy Spirit takes hold together with us against the forces of darkness, to obtain that which belongs to us, and to establish the righteousness of God in every place. We carry out this ministry through, and by the Spirit. When we take our place of intercession, the Lord says we’ll lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty (1 Timothy 2:2); our societies will be established in righteousness.

Intercession is always on behalf of others; you’re concentrating the influence of God’s power toward others for their good; and that requires some persistence in prayer. Imagine that someone has been sick for a long time with cancer or some deadly infirmity; he may not be able to appropriate the blessings of Christ about healing and health for himself. However, through your intercession, he can receive a miracle, as you take his place in prayer and rebuke the adversary.

PRAYER
Blessed Father, I pray for all who are suffering, especially God’s children, who are sick, displaced, hurting or experiencing any form of pain, that by your Spirit, and through the ministry of angels, help, succour and comfort will come to them. I pray that the faith, courage, and strength they need to come out victorious be ministered to them, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

YOUR HARVEST IS SURE .

Monday, September 25th .
Pastor Chris

He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him (Psalm 126:6).

Oftentimes, we come across people who put so much effort and resources into working for the Lord, but after a while they begin to wonder, “What would be my reward or gain for all these efforts?”

Now, the Word of God is clear: God is always the last giver. No one can ever out-give Him. Therefore, be encouraged and don’t despair, for the Bible says, “…God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister” (Hebrews 6:10).

Our opening verse puts it succinctly: “He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” What this means is that your harvest is sure; it’ll happen without fail. A sheave is a bundle of stalk or ears of grain that you bind together after they’re cut. They’re bound together for transportation or for storage. It’s sometimes used as a term to refer to a package of so many things put together. But in our theme verse, it refers to some form of harvest from your giving, and this isn’t just about money.

It’s important to know, as a child of God, that you can get your harvest anytime you choose; you can make it happen anytime you want. Genesis 8:22 says, “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” This means there’s no definite time for the harvest. “Seedtime and harvest” means harvest is anytime. Though there be seedtime (a time of sowing), you can call forth the harvest anytime! You might as well consider today your day of harvest, your day of blessings! Praise God!

Your harvest ought to come in ways that are supernatural. For example, the Bible says Isaac sowed during the time of famine—a time when it was naturally impossible for harvest—yet he received in the same year a hundredfold (Genesis 26:12-13).

We can determine and make our harvest happen when we want it. This is because we function in the Name of Jesus. Nonetheless, there’s also a need of patience (Hebrews 10:36), for he that believes does not make haste (Isaiah 28:16).

PRAYER

Dear Father, I adore you for the opportunities to sow and be a blessing through giving, and for the privilege to call forth my harvest. My seeds and labour of love are sanctified by your Spirit to produce a multiplied harvest of blessings for me in my ministry, finances, family, and all areas of life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

FURTHER STUDY: || 2 Corinthians 9:7-11 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 8 And God [is] able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all [things], may abound to every good work: 9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever. 10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for [your] food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;) 11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God. ||

|| Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. ||

|| Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. ||

THE LIFE OF THE SPIRIT IN YOU .

Saturday, September 23rd .
Pastor Chris

And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness (Romans 8:10).

In the verse above, the Apostle Paul wasn’t questioning whether Christ was in the brethren in Rome; rather, he stirred their minds to an important reality. He wanted them to know that Christ in them was a vital reality, and a guarantee of a life of health and vitality. He said if Christ is in you, though your body may be weak and sickly, He’ll vitalize it.

Paul’s conclusion is that when you have the Holy Spirit, you shouldn’t be sick, because your body is vitalized by the same Spirit: “...if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (vitalize, make alive) your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you” (Romans 8:11). The work of the Holy Spirit in vitalizing your physical body is in the “now”; it’s not futuristic; it’s not something that will happen when we get to heaven; He works in you now! Glory to God!

The Holy Spirit is the power of God; His presence in you has settled the matter of sickness and weakness forever, for He works and walks in you, to “fix” any anomaly in your physical body. His life in you makes you unconquerable. He’s the One who raised the dead body of Jesus back to life; and now, He lives in you in all of His glory, power and majesty.

Today, it makes no difference how much your physical body may have been ravaged or battered by sickness or disease; what you need is the consciousness of the Healer in you—the Holy Spirit. He in you is your hope to rise and walk again, and live perpetually in divine health.

CONFESSION

The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in me, and has given life, vitality and vigour to my physical body. I’m nourished, refreshed, and rejuvenated every day by the Holy Spirit, who perambulates in me to keep me in health, righteousness, and in the glory of God. Blessed be God!

FURTHER STUDY: || 1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. ||

|| Romans 8:10 AMPC But if Christ lives in you, [then although] your [natural] body is dead by reason of sin and guilt, the spirit is alive because of [the] righteousness [that He imputes to you]. ||

The Gift Of His Name

Thursday, September 21st.
Pastor Chris.

"And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it (John 14:13-14)."

The Lord Jesus gave us the power of attorney to use His Name. That Name belongs to you today; you have the legal authority to use the Name of Jesus. You can do anything in His Name.

Just before His ascension, Jesus said, “...All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” (Matthew 28:18-19). All authority in heaven and earth has been given to Jesus. Everything that exists in this world and beyond is subject to the Name of Jesus.

The day you were born again, you ceased to live in your name; you inherited the Name of Jesus. You’re therefore supposed to function in His place, with His authority and in His character. Your words carry the same power and authority as Jesus.’ His Name has power everywhere. It has power over governments, devils, principalities, and powers. Use that Name.

Not many Christians know how to use the Name of Jesus; they think it’s just a name to put at the end of a prayer; it’s much more than that. The Bible says, “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it” (John 14:13-14). This is Jesus talking, and He wasn’t referring to prayer, because you can’t pray to Jesus in the Name of Jesus. He’s talking about using His Name as an instrument; making a demand in His Name.

Peter did that with the lame man at the gate of the temple called Beautiful; he said, “In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” He then got the crippled man by the right hand, pulled him up, and his anklebones received strength. The Bible says, “And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God” (Acts 3:8). Amazing! In Acts 3:16 and Acts 4:9-10, Peter declared that the Name of Jesus was the instrument that performed the miracle. Blessed be God!

You have the greatest gift of all times; the gift of the Name of Jesus. Use it every day, and everywhere. When you demand something to happen in His Name, He’s back of it; He makes sure it happens, because He’s got the power. Glory to God!


Prayer
Blessed heavenly Father, I thank you for the gift of the Name of Jesus, and the power of attorney given to me to use it. By that Name, which you have highly exalted and placed above every other name, I live victoriously and dominate life’s situations and circumstances. Amen.

FILLED WITH THE FRUITS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS .
Saturday, September 9th .
PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME PHD

May you abound in and be filled with the fruits of righteousness (of right standing with God and right doing) which come through Jesus Christ (the Anointed One), to the honor and praise of God [that His glory may be both manifested and recognized] (Philippians 1:11 AMPC).

Romans 5:1 AMPC says, “THEREFORE, SINCE we are justified (acquitted, declared righteous, and given a right standing with God) through faith, let us [grasp the fact that we] have [the peace of reconciliation to hold and to enjoy] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).”To be justified means to be declared not guilty. That’s who the Christian is: one who’s been declared righteous and has right standing with God. He’s not merely a “sinner saved by grace.”

Yes, we were saved by grace, as a means to an end: to become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. It’s the reason our lives ought to be filled with the fruits of righteousness—the works of righteousness. Jesus said, “I am the vine, ye are the branches…” (John 15:5). We’re the fruit-bearing part of the vine, and we bear fruits of righteousness. We hold forth the fruits of God’s righteousness everywhere we go; righteousness is working in us.

Now, whatever you’re filled with is what will manifest under pressure. In other words, it’s what you have inside you that you can give. We manifest righteousness; we walk in righteousness and do works of righteousness, because we’re filled with the fruits of righteousness.

When Jesus restored sight to the blind, unstopped deaf ears, gave new legs to the maimed, raised the dead, fed the hungry, comforted the afflicted, spoke divine words to encourage and bless people, He was manifesting fruits of righteousness. And as He is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).

You’re a tree of righteousness, ordained to be fruitful and productive in every good work; ordained to manifest the glory of God. You’re His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for works of righteousness (Ephesians 2:10).

PRAYER

Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the revelation of your Word to me, and for the working of your Word in my spirit. I’m filled with the fruits of righteousness; therefore, I manifest the righteousness of God to my world just as Jesus did, because as He is, so am I in this world. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY:|| 2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. ||

Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure. ||

💢||| The Adversities Don’t Count

Friday, September 8th
Pastor Chris

And do not [for a moment] be frightened or intimidated in anything by your opponents and adversaries, for such [constancy and fearlessness] will be a clear sign (proof and seal) to them of [their impending] destruction, but [a sure token and evidence] of your deliverance and salvation, and that from God (Philippians 1:28 AMPC).


As a Christian, you’re a victor forever; therefore, never be concerned about who’s against you or the challenges that you face. For example, anyone who sets himself up as your adversary will of necessity stumble and fall. You don’t have to pray about it; the Word says so: “...When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell” (Psalm 27:1-2). So you see, the adversaries and adversities that you face are not a factor.

The Bible says, “Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). You’re unconquerable. James 1:2 says, “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations.” You may be faced with challenges in your academics; count it all joy, because no matter what happens, you’re coming through with a testimony. Refuse to faint or lose heart in the day of crisis; God believes in you! He believes that He’s trained you enough to face challenges and win.

Even when you’ve prayed and the trouble seemed not to have gone away, refuse to give up. We never buckle under trouble! We never cry when we face challenges. Eyeball the devil and say, “Devil, no matter what you do, I’m more than a conqueror, because greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world.”

We have the comfort of the Scriptures; we have the assurance of the Holy Ghost in our lives that we can never be defeated. Refuse to be terrified by anything. There’re no adversaries or adversities on earth or in the heavenlies that can overpower you as long as you function in God’s Word. Glory to God!


|| PRAYER

Greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world. I refuse to worry or fret over anything, because the Lord is in me and with me always. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. I dwell in the secret place of the most High God, and function with the ability of the Spirit always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES TUESDAY, 5TH SEPTEMBER.

THE NEW CREATION WAS NOT REDEEMED.

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people (Luke 1:68)

It’s clear those to whom the verse above refers: the Jews; they were the ones that needed to be redeemed, because they were under the curse of the law. Galatians 3:13 says, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” Some Christians quote this scripture, assuming it to be applicable to everyone, whereas it applies only to the Jews. Paul was speaking generically as a Jew.

The Gentiles weren’t redeemed from the curse of the Law; they were redeemed from the condemnation of the Law. The very presence of the Law was the condemnation of the Gentiles. When God chose the Jews to be His people, and gave them righteous laws to live by, that immediately condemned the Gentiles. That’s why in Ephesians 2:12, the Gentiles are described as “...aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world.”

However, in Christ Jesus, both the Jews and the Gentiles have been brought together to make one new man that’s neither a Jew nor a Gentile; that’s the new creation: “For he is our peace, who hath made both one (the Jews and the Gentiles) and hath broken down the middle wall of partition…” (Ephesians 2:14).

This new creation wasn’t redeemed from the curse of the Law, because he was never under the curse of the Law; he’s a brand new man that never existed before: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Your life transcends this earthly realm; it’s the life of Christ. You don’t have a past to be “redeemed” or delivered from, for your old nature was crucified with Christ, and now, you’ve been raised to a newness of life. Walk in this consciousness.

CONFESSION.
I’m a new creation in Christ Jesus, born with the life and nature of God! I'm a brand new man that never existed before, living the supernatural life naturally, and flying high on the wings of the Spirit. I'm prosperous, healthy, and strong, making impact with the Gospel, by the Holy Spirit. Glory to God!
