Make not provision for the flesh

Romans 13:13-14 (NET) "Let us live decently as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in discord and jealousy. Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to arouse its desires."

Gabriel used to be an alcoholic before he accepted the Lord Jesus. After meeting the Lord, he vowed never to drink alcohol again. He kept this vow and enjoyed his growing relationship with the Lord until his cousin came to visit from another country, requiring him to spend a lot of time with him.

Gabriel's cousin, being an unbeliever, wanted to visit clubs and bars together. Trying to be a good host, Gabriel did not decline as he usually would have. He followed his cousin to the club a few times, and one night, he took some alcohol, became drunk, and did things he had vowed never to do again. When he came to his senses, he regretted it with tears and ran to his pastor to confess what had happened. His pastor exclaimed, "Oh, you gave room to the flesh." He explained to Gabriel that the flesh cannot be transformed and will ultimately be changed during the resurrection. Until then, we must ensure that we do not give it room.

No matter how high you go in the Spirit, if you give room to the flesh for a moment, you will be shocked at how untransformed the flesh remains and how it seeks to dominate you. The flesh is an unrepentant rebel that must be perpetually mortified.

There are songs, environments, thoughts, and imaginations that, if not quickly arrested, will give room to the flesh. There are also companies that, if not severed, will give room to the flesh.

Go into today remembering that no matter how high you've gone, if you give the flesh even a little room to dominate your soul, it will ultimately cause you to fall. Guard your heart with all diligence. Watch out for the things that give room to the flesh and cut them out of your life.

Prayer: I enjoy Christ's exceeding grace; I walk in the Spirit and please the Lord in all things. I give no room to the flesh; sin has no dominion over me.

The ultimate key to answered prayers

Broadcast 4035
Click here for the audio version:
Psalms 37:4 (KJV)“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”

Mr. Elijah had five children he loved very much, but everyone believed George was his favorite because he always gave George the things he desired, even at times when he would say "no" to others. It wasn’t that he loved his other children less than he loved George, but he was more fond of George.

Of all his children, George was the one who delighted in him the most. For example, George would run the fastest and scream the loudest with joy whenever his father came home from work. George also loved spending time with his dad the most. Because George delighted in his dad more than the others, he understood him better and knew the kinds of things he liked and disliked. Consequently, he enjoyed more favor from his dad.

When a child of God delights himself in the Lord, it means he loves the presence of God and the word/law of the Lord. The word of the Lord is the clearest expression of the nature of the Lord to us, offering us the opportunity to know His ways and become more like Him. The more we become like Him, the more our desires align with His, and we see them fulfilled by Him. People can grow in favor with God(see Luke 2:52), and this is often because of their desires and delights.

Go into today remembering that delighting yourself in the Lord will manifest in your desire to know Him more and become like Him. Those who delight themselves in the Lord will find that they are continually transformed into the nature and likeness of the Lord (this is the definition of fruitfulness). This is the ultimate secret to answered prayers (see John 15:16).

True faith in Christ Jesus 4

Broadcast 4034
Click here for the audio version:
Jude 3-4 (NLT)…But now I find that I must write about something else, urging you to defend the faith that God has entrusted once for all time to his holy people. 4 I say this because some ungodly people have wormed their way into your churches, saying that God's marvelous grace allows us to live immoral lives…

One sad thing about being deceived is that those deceived do not know that they are being deceived. They sincerely believe that they are right.

Deception is one of the devil's key weapons against God's people. He tries to get us deluded to walk in darkness. For the past couple of days, we have been writing on 'true faith in Christ Jesus' because we want to destroy the deception of the devil that is leading honest Christians into a kind of faith that is not the true faith in Christ Jesus. This kind of faith has no fruit and no evidence of righteousness but is simply talk and more talk. This kind of faith has no real power it produces because it leaves its followers captives to diverse sorts of sins.

When Paul wrote 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 which says "Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers… will not inherit the kingdom of God", he knew that there would be those who claimed to have faith in Christ, but who were still practicing these sins. He knew such people believed they were in God's kingdom because they were deceived.

The devil will do anything to keep people deceived from walking in righteousness, because this would give them power over him. He would use false doctrines to deceive many into a version of faith that makes them powerless over him.

Go into today knowing that unrighteousness is what gives Satan power over people. The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all unrighteousness.

Thank the Lord Jesus for His blood that cleanses you. Ask for grace to walk in true righteousness.

True Faith in Christ Jesus 3

Click here for the audio version:

Jude 3-4 (NLT)…But now I find that I must write about something else, urging you to defend the faith that God has entrusted once for all time to his holy people. I say this because some ungodly people have wormed their way into your churches, saying that God's marvelous grace allows us to live immoral lives…

When Jim gave his life to Christ, he was very glad to find a church that didn’t make him uncomfortable with his lifestyle [of sin] that he enjoyed. They encouraged him to love the Lord, but did not discourage him from loving the world (see 1 John 2:15). He continued in his sinful lifestyle while he grew in his commitment to that church community. What he did not know was that he was not yet truly converted. 

Any teaching that undermines righteousness is not teaching the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, it is teaching another faith. True Faith always produces righteousness, and faith without works is dead (see James 2:14). Righteousness produced by faith is not a product of human struggle; it is a product of grace.

The purpose of the old covenant was to produce righteousness. The old covenant could not do this because the flesh weakened man. The purpose of the new covenant is still to produce righteousness in us. It has succeeded because our born-again spirits energize us beyond the limitations of the flesh. We are being renewed from within.

The reason why God's covenant with fallen man seeks to produce righteousness is that God's throne is established in righteousness and justice (see Psa 89:14). If we must partake in this throne, we must allow God's nature of righteousness to dominate us.

Go into today asking the Lord to empower you to always please Him in all things, and be fruitful in every good work.

True Faith in Christ Jesus 2

Broadcast 4032
Click here for the audio version:
1 John 3:10-11(NASB) By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.
Clement was careful with the friends he made as a freshman in college. He knew that God wanted to use him on campus, so he carefully selected his friends. His rule was simple; anyone who practiced unrighteousness was unrighteous and not a child of God, regardless of what he or she claimed to be. This is how he succeeded in making the right friends.

The Lord Jesus teaches us that we will know people by their fruits(see Mat 7:16). We also see from today's Bible text that anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God.

Our righteousness comes from the Lord; He helps us and empowers us to be righteous before Him. The Holy Spirit within us administers the grace of God to our spirits and empowers us to be righteous before God, but we must yield to the Spirit and not yield to the flesh. This is the secret of Christian righteousness.

No one truly filled with the Holy Spirit will continue to walk in unrighteousness because he will have received a renewed nature. No one who knows God will trust in his own righteousness as the basis for access to God. He will know that the grace of Jesus that gives him access to God's throne is also responsible for his ability to be righteous.

Go into today yielding to the Holy Spirit and walking in a manner worthy of the Lord.

Ask the Lord to deliver you from everything that displeases Him and help you glorify Him with your body.

True faith in Christ Jesus

Broadcast 4031
Click here for the audio version:
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NET) Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive, and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God.

I have known of persons who live in known sins and claim to be believers in Christ Jesus. They claim that they are saved by grace, and that their salvation is not affected by their unholy lifestyle.

We cannot rule out the fact that Christians can make mistakes and sometimes fall, but anyone who continually comfortably lives in sin has no part in God's kingdom. He only proves that He has not really been born of God, because anyone truly born of God will have a changed nature that abhors sin (see 1 John 3:9).

If you profess faith in Christ Jesus but are still comfortably living in any of the sins mentioned in today’s Bible text, know that your profession of faith in Christ is counterfeit. You have been deceived and need to repent from your sins in order to have a part in the kingdom of God. True faith in Christ Jesus always produces true repentance.

God’s grace empowers you to live a holy life before Him. It is never a license to sin. God wants us to walk in His perfect will and experience the best of His riches, but sin and guilt are some of the major hindrances to this. God's grace is available to help anyone who repents and turns to Him for empowerment to be Holy.

Go into today, trusting in the finished work of Christ on the cross as the reason why you will receive the grace of God to walk above sin. Do not let the devil discourage you if you fall. Know that even though a righteous man falls seven times, he will rise again because the seed of God is in him (see Prov 24:16).

Exercise the divine nature

Broadcast 4030
Click here for the audio version:
1 John 2:10 (NET) The one who loves his fellow Christian resides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him.

Daniel's dad was a celebrated wrestling champion and a very fast runner. Daniel had inherited his father's athletic genes, but he could not do any of the things His father did because his muscles were not built up. When Daniel got to college, he joined a group that made him exercise routinely. Daniel then realized he too could run very fast and play tennis. In no time, he started to excel in wrestling. He could do all this because His muscles were now developed.

If you read the book of 1st John, you will see that the most obvious theme is love. 1 John reveals that when we walk in love, we will walk above a guilty conscience (1 John 3:18-20). It also reveals that when we walk in love, we walk in the light and receive cleansing from unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). We can also see from today's Bible text that when we walk in love, there would be no cause for stumbling in us.

In order to walk in the reality of God's divine life and grace that you have received, you need to exercise yourself in His nature and grow therein. As you grow, you will be able to know God more and grow in His grace. A child doesn’t have the capacity to properly know his father until grows up from being a child.

Like Daniel in the story above, as you exercise and develop your spiritual muscles, you will realize that because you have grown through exercising the most dominant attribute of God's nature you now have, you will also grow in the many other attributes of God's divine nature. Your life will be full of grace and power.

Go into today, deciding to further exercise your divine nature by walking in love.

Eternal life

Broadcast 4029
Click here for the audio version:

1 John 5:11 (NET)  And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 
 
When Ted gave his life to Christ, it was like his life had just begun because his old life was now a thing of the past. He now had the empowerment to live above his old habits and proclivities that made his life miserable. And he received healing from the incurable disease he was born with. "The Lord gave me a new life when I became born again. My old life gave way for a new superior life" Ted said.

Ted's testimony may appear really wowing, but that is how the Lord wants every Christian to receive the new life. Eternal life is in Christ Jesus, and Christ dwells in you through the Holy Spirit. This is the reason why baptism in the spirit is important for every Christian. You cannot fully enjoy eternal life if you are not baptized in the Holy Spirit. And if you are baptized, you need to stay filled.

Anyone filled with the Spirit will begin to experience eternal life. It is because of this life that you can cast out demons and heal the sick.

What then is eternal life? When the Bible speaks of eternal life in 1 John 5:11, it refers to the gift of God that comes only through Jesus Christ our Lord (see Romans 6:23). This gift is the life quality that Jesus has. This life is superior to the human life. It makes you a new creation and makes it possible for you to be transformed into the image of Christ. Without eternal life in your spirit, transformation into the image of Christ is impossible. Every Christian is actually born again into eternal life. But not all nurture this life to let it dominate them.

Go into today asking the Lord to help you walk in His eternal life.

Dwelling in Christ 3

Broadcast 4028
Click here for the audio version:
Ephesians 5:18 (KJV) And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit.

Pastor Felix shared with Bill that indulging in fleshly desires and excesses poses a significant obstacle to being filled with the Spirit. He emphasized that any activity done to excess, which doesn't contribute to spiritual growth, can hinder the Spirit's fullness. Pastor Felix cited examples such as overconsumption of alcohol, overeating, excessive sleep, idle chatter, and lust.

Bill admitted to Pastor Felix that he had been excessively watching godless movies lately, which did not uplift him spiritually.

Further, Pastor Felix explained to Bill that being filled with the Spirit is a continuous choice we make. While the Holy Spirit desires to fill us, we determine whether we allow Him to do so through our actions and decisions. Hence, the Bible instructs us to "be filled with the Spirit," signifying our active involvement in this process. He began teaching Bill practical steps to maintain a spirit-filled life.

go into today with a commitment to eliminate fleshly excesses and indulgences from your life. Ask the Holy Spirit to empower you to make these changes.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, please enable me to be filled with your Spirit consistently. Amen.

John 15:5 (NKJV) "…for without Me you can do nothing”
 
After Bill suffered some affliction because of demonic attacks, he sought help from place to place. Pastor Felix had taught him the importance of being baptized in the Holy Spirit. Bill was now properly enlightened and could see the need for the Holy Spirit’s baptism. He saw that the presence of the Holy Spirit in His life was the solution to His problems.

One Wednesday evening after communion service, Bill received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Pastor Felix had laid hands on Him earlier and he began to speak in tongues uncontrollably for several hours. At that moment, Bill knew he had received total deliverance and the word of God became alive in him. He now felt a closeness to God that he had never felt in His life. He felt lighter in his spirit.

As some days went by, Bill discovered that his fire appeared to diminish; he was no longer feeling the presence of God like he felt that Wednesday; he was now beginning to feel ordinary again. He went to Pastor Felix and explained to Him. Pastor Felix immediately understood what Bill was talking about and began to teach Him some truths: “You need to learn how to stay filled with the Spirit at all times, it begins with an acknowledgment that your life is empty without the presence of the Holy Spirit; that without Him, you can do nothing” Pastor Felix opened Ephesians 5 and began to explain from verse 18 how to stay filled with the Spirit (to be continued).

Go into today knowing that God’s presence is the air your spirit breaths. Without Him, you can do nothing. The more you thirst and seek His presence, the more you receive.


Prayer: Holy Spirit, please teach me to stay filled with your presence always, in Jesus' name. Amen.

Dwelling in Christ Part 1

Broadcast 4026
Click here for the audio version:

John 15:5(NKJV) "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
 
Three years after Bill had accepted Christ as Lord and Savior, he still was not baptized in the Holy Spirit. Unfortunately, this did not bother him because the only difference he believed it made was that it caused people to speak in tongues; something he didn’t particularly look forward to. But Bill couldn’t be more wrong. He was lacking the fullness of His new life because he was never filled with the Holy Spirit.

Bill often wondered what people who prayed for up to an hour were saying for so long. He would get bored and even sleep off if he tried to pray for more than ten minutes. Bill never enjoyed fellowship with the Lord because he was not yet filled with the Holy Spirit. This was the primary reason why Bill experienced so many demonic attacks.

The reason why many Christians do not enjoy the full benefits of their salvation is because they are not dwelling in Christ. The thing about dwelling in Christ is that He will also dwell in you, and He dwells in you through His Holy Spirit. He lives in you so that you may live in Him. Anyone who is baptized in the Holy Spirit and stays filled with the Holy Spirit will experience this.

Go into today determining to be filled with the Holy Spirit at all times. If you are a Christian and you are not yet baptized in the Holy Spirit, it is time for you to make this your top priority.

Prayer: thank you Lord because you are my baptizer. Heavenly Father, I ask for a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Wisdom application

Broadcast 4025
Click here for the audio version:

 Proverbs 15:20 (NET) A wise child brings joy to his father, but a foolish person despises his mother.


Dayo was sent to learn to be an auto mechanic. His master in the trade was not as educated as he was, but he was very skilled. Dayo applied all his heart to the trade and became excellent in a very short while. His father in the trade was glad to see how fast he was learning. But there came a time when Dayo became even more skilled than his master. He would know what to do when they are challenged with very difficult situations that even his father in trade couldn’t solve. But Dayo was a wise young man. He continued to treat his master with even more respect, and he made it clear to everyone that he knew all he knew because his master chose to show all he knew. Dayo was a continual source of Joy to his master until it was time for him to leave to start up his own workshop. His master was quite sad because he was losing his most skilled and most trusted son in the trade. He blessed Dayo with all his heart and released him to go into the world to prosper in the trade. That was exactly what Dayo did.

Today’s Bible text looks most appropriate for the family setting, but it is equally applicable in instances such as the one mentioned above. One of the ways to know if you are wise is to check if you bring joy or sorrow to those who have helped you and contributed to making you who you are today.

As you go into today, remember that God has called us to be wise and not foolish, to be meek and not conceited.

The door and the thief

Click here for the audio version:
John 10:1(AMP) I ASSURE you, most solemnly I tell you, he who does not enter by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way (elsewhere, from some other quarter) is a thief and a robber.

When Suzan went to visit a soothsayer, he held her hand and told her things that were to happen to her. He also told her in precise detail what she had gone through in the past. Unknown to Suzan, the familiar spirit, that she came in contact with through that encounter with the sorcerer stole something from her. The spiritual substance the spirit stole from her can best be described as life. She discovered that after that encounter, she always had reason to come back to visit the soothsayer because she became more sickly and unfortunate.

Jesus tells us in today’s Bible verse that anyone who does not come through the door is a thief. He later went on to explain in verse 9 that He is the door. So this means anyone who does not come through Him is a thief.

In John 14:6, Jesus says “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father except through me”.

Any other way through which humans contact the spirit and divine realm is illegal. The only proper way through which man can contact these realms is through Christ Jesus. If you do so with the aid of any spirit that is not the spirit of Christ, you will be impoverished of spiritual life (by that spirit).

Go into today knowing that Jesus has come to give and restore life to you, He alone gives abundant life.

Prayer: Thank the Lord for being the good Shepherd who gives you life. Ask for grace to walk in the fullness of this life; to walk in in power, prosperity, divine health, etc. Amen.

The Ministry of Angels

Broadcast 4022
Click here for the audio version:
Hebrews 1:14 (NIV) Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
After fasting all day and being really tired, a man was driving between two towns in the northern part of Nigeria when he had a flat tire. He was in the middle of the wilderness with no human settlement in sight. Two young men approached him and offered to change his tire; he was so glad and gave them some money when they finished changing it. While he was driving away from them, he looked into his rear mirror to observe them as many thoughts flooded his mind about these very nice men in the middle of the wilderness. “Where did they come from and how come they speak such fluent English?” he thought as he looked in his rear mirror, but he couldn’t find them anymore. They had literally disappeared. He also saw the money he gave them back in the place where he took it. This is a true story.

Angels minister to those who will inherit salvation, whether they are born again at the time or not. How much more so when you are born again. The Bible tells us that the angel of the Lord encamps around them that fear Him (see Psa 34:7). These angels could also physically manifest themselves if the need arises.

Go into today knowing that you are not alone in this world and you can never ever be forsaken in this life because God who controls angels and the entire universe is on your side.

Prayer: thank you Lord for this day. Thank you for your great love for me. I pray you help me walk always in your will for me. Amen.

The Disobedient Son

Broadcast 4022
Click here for the audio version:
Luke 15:13 (KJV) And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.

Every child at some point has loved something his or her parents did not like. However, parents will correct their children when they are wrong, but will not disown them. As a matter of fact, parents consciously and unconsciously train their children to become like them. A child is therefore a product of the strengths and weaknesses of his parents.

God, like our earthly parents, will not disown us because we do wrong, however, he will correct us until we become like Him. The gravity of the correction may vary from light to heavy. For example, the prodigal son suffered hunger and lack and worked as a servant for a while. Jonah stayed three days in the belly of a fish; Jacob served twenty-one years for what God would have given him for free.

Do you know that disobedience usually leads to punishment? Many have achieved little, others lived a short life and so many are struggling without progress because they disobey God. Thankfully, God has kept you alive so you can repent and turn back to Him. If you will turn to God in repentance, He will welcome you with a feast.

Go into today knowing that God has not given up on you. You may have missed it, but when you turn back to Him, you will find Him ever ready to welcome you with a feast.

Prayer: make a prayer of repentance if you have missed it. Pray for your brothers and sisters who want to return to God.

Getting Answered Prayers

Broadcast 4021
Click here for the audio version:

John 15:16 (KJV) Ye have not chosen me but I have chosen you and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

While preparing a sermon some days back, I tried to list some of the factors responsible for unanswered prayers. There are a couple of them and they include sins, doubts, praying amiss, unforgiveness, and lack of persistence or consistency in prayer. One prime factor emphasized in the Old Testament was sin. In the New Testament, Jesus also laid emphasis on faith deficiency and doubts being hindrances. Also, in today’s Bible text, Jesus says that when we bear fruit and our fruit remains, we will have answers to our prayers. Unfruitfulness creates a hindrance to our prayers. Unfruitfulness is when we are not producing the fruit of the spirit as children of God (see Gal 5:22-23). The fruit of the spirit has to do with Christian character; how do we treat people? Christians are to be people of faith and people of Character.

Fruitfulness also has to do with being faithful in the assignment the Lord has given you in the kingdom; you do not exist just to meet your needs here on earth.

Go into the world today with a determination to be fruitful as you do the things of the kingdom.

Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, help me to take the business of God's kingdom more seriously, in Jesus' name I pray. Amen
—Lanre Tobi & SD Abraham

The Hope of our calling

Broadcast 4020
Click here for the audio version:
Ephesians 1:18(KJV) The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints...
A lot has been said and written about faith and love, but not as much about Hope. We all understand that if a person loses his faith, he has lost his spiritual life. And we also understand that if a person does not have love, it is a sign that he does not have faith in the first place because faith in God will always produce love. Out of the three dominant Christian attributes (faith, hope, and love) mentioned in 1 Cor 13:13, hope is the least talked about.

It is because of hope that we continue to have faith. One of the most important things God gives to us is hope. He does this by giving us the Holy Spirit who guarantees our inheritance. The Holy Spirit also causes us to experience a foretaste of the things to come.

The sad reality today is that many Christians have managed to survive eliminating the hope of our calling from their minds. They do not really look forward to the resurrection of the dead because they have been tricked into focusing on this present life and not on the kingdom. They forget that the best this present world order has to offer is but shadows when compared with what we will get when our bodies have been redeemed into the likeness of Christ.

Go into today remembering the hope of your calling into God’s kingdom. God is making sons in the image of Christ. This God’s grand design will be fully actualized when in the resurrection, we are changed to become exactly as Christ is. See 1 John 3:2.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you never lose sight of the hope of His calling.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi

The Love of the Father

Broadcast 4019
Click here for the audio version:

2 Corinthians 13:14 (KJV) The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.


Amaka lived a dry, uneventful, and beggarly Christian life because she did not truly understand the love of God. Indeed, she knew that ‘God loves us so much’, but she had not come to experience and have the revelation of God’s love for her. The reason for this was that she did not fully understand the grace of God. She had received a gospel watered down with the doctrine of works for righteousness. She did not fully understand the grace of the Lord Jesus.

It is worthy of note that in today’s Bible text, the grace of the Lord was mentioned first, before the love of the Father? I believe this is because you cannot fully experience and understand the love of the Father if you have not had a revelation of the grace of Christ Jesus. This revelation ultimately leads to repentance and new birth into God’s family.

When we understand that though Christ was rich, for our sakes he stripped himself of His divine glory and became poor, so that through His poverty, we too can be made rich like He was in glory, we have started to understand His grace(2 Cor 8:9). When you have this revelation, you will understand that all you receive from the father is at Christ’s expense, not at your expense. You will then be able to understand and experience the fathering Love of God. You will now know that you have a Father in heaven who cares for you and is very interested in the details of your life. This Father wants you to fulfill your destiny more than you want to.

Go into today asking the Lord to reveal the dimensions of His love to you (see Eph 3:18).
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
