RCCG Youth Convention 2012: UNSTOPPABLE GENERATION by Pastor E.A. Adeboye

The summary of Pastor E.A. Adeboye’s message at the RCCG Youth Convention 2012 (Holy Ghost Service) » “The Unstoppable Generation”

UNSTOPPABLE GENERATION

Romans 8:31 “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”

 

-If God be for you, sickness cannot stop you!

According to John 1:3 the One who made you can repair anything and any part of your body. God is the great physician so if you’re sick and the devil is trying to use that make you unstoppable, a word from the Great physician will get you healed John 9:1-7 1Peter 2:24, Matthew 8:1-3, Mark 2:1-12.

 

“Whatever the devil has planted in you to slow you down shall be uprooted in Jesus name”   AMEN!

 

 

-If God be for you, demons cannot stop you!

Psalm 24:7-10, Phil 2:9-10, Mark 5:1-15

God is the Lord of hosts! Demons cannot make you unstoppable you because God is the commander in chief of all host i.e angels and demons on earth, above the earth and beneath the earth. He has power over every demon.

 

”Every evil force that is trying to block your way shall be cleared out in Jesus name” AMEN!

 

-If God be for you, witches and wizards cannot stop you!

Witches, wizards and herbalist cannot make you unstoppable. Isaiah 54: 17 says no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper.  Even if the witch doctors/herbalist gathers leaves and herbs to make charms against you, God will tell the leaves not to function. According to Numbers 23:23, with God on your side, no enchantment can be against you.

 

“Every Charms made to harm you will be ineffective in Jesus name”   AMEN!

 

-If God be for you, curses and evil covenant cannot stop you!

Curses and evil covenant cannot make you unstoppable. Numbers 23:8 makes it clear that if God doesn’t permit it, no curse can be effective in your life. Matthew 15:13; Isaiah 28:15-18   God will disannul every negative covenant.

 

“Every evil covenant made on your behalf is destroyed in Jesus name.” AMEN!

 

 

-If God be for you, the devil cannot stop you!

Even the devil cannot make you unstoppable if God is on your side. Rev 12:11 says we overcame the devil by the blood of the Lamb. There is a power in the blood of Jesus the devil cannot tamper with. In Job 1:8-12, devil had to take permission from God to touch Job. The devil knows his limits and takes final instructions from God before he can do certain things.

 

Don’t have the mindset that God will give devil permission to turture you. If you read the bible well, you’ll realise Job was called a servant of God, you are a son! You can perform experiments with servants but not with sons, remember you are God’s child, the apple of His eyes!

 

John 15:16, If you are a soul winner, you are unstoppable because the devil cannot tamper with you.

 

“That blood of Jesus will speak for you in Jesus name” AMEN!

 

  • When asked “If God be for you who can be against you?” most Christians say ‘Nobody’.  If you read Romans 8:31, you’ll realise the Bible didn’t answer that question , ‘Nobody’  isn’t in that verse

-If  God be for you,  you’re are the only one that stop yourself !

If God be for you, you can be against yourself if you keep living in sin and refuse to obey Him completely!

 

Joshua 1:1-9, Joshua 7:1-26

In Joshua chapter 1 God had promised never to leave or forsake Joshua, he was promised victory over his enemies but by chapter 7, he experienced defeat because of sin.

 

If God is willing to be for you but you fail to learn from history, you’ll become stoppable!  Sin and self will stop you from becoming unstoppable.

 

The reason many people get into trouble is because the claim one part of the Bible and ignore other parts. Many Christians claim the promises but ignore the conditions!

 

You cannot be an unstoppable person if you keep mixing the word of God with yours!  If you don’t meet God’s conditions, His promises won’t come to pass in your life.

 

 

Make a new resolution to serve God 100%. If you are not ready to serve and obey Him 100% then follow the devil completely so he can treat you well on earth with some fame or wealth before suffering in hell.  Don’t put one leg in the church and the other in the world because that will only hinder prayers and make God turn his back on you Rev 3:15,16

 

If you restitute your ways, you’ll regain everything you’ve lost and become unstoppable. Make your ways right with God, if you’re a sinner/backslidder repent and come back to God today!   A word is enough for the wise!!!

 

PRAYER POINTS:
1)   Praise God that you are even here tonight. Tonight is going to be a turning point for somebody here tonight.

2)  Father, give me the grace to stop being my own enemy because I know no one can stop me except I stop myself. Give me the grace to obey You completely

3)  Father, let Your Blood speak for me against all satanic hosts.

4)  Father, let Your stripes avail for me against all diseases and aches and pains

5)  Father, neutralize all efforts of my adversaries tonight.

6)  Father, every obstacle in my way to success crush tonight.

7)  Father, take me to highest level possible regardless of every form of opposition

8)  Father, let me begin to enjoy joy unspeakable

9)  Personal Request

New Glory Devotional: STAND UP FOR JESUS – Sunday, October 7, 2012

By Pastor Ayo Agbelusi

Memorise: “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” (Jude 1:3).

Read: Acts 5:40-43

Christianity is a lifestyle and it shows wherever you go provided you are genuinely transformed and renewed by the precious blood of Jesus. The life you lead and the company you keep is a proof of who you are. You can’t be of Christ and not be different in this crooked and perverse generation.

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. ” (Matthew 5:14-15).

Light can never be hidden. It commands the respect of darkness and rules in all places. Light stands out. The believer in Christ is called the Light of the world because he is the ambassador of Christ on the earth and also a guide of the world out of obscurity to the knowledge and counsel of the Lord.

You can only proof the sincerity of your salvation through the life you lead. It will show if you are standing for Jesus. “Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. ” (Matthew 5:15). Why are you covering the grace upon your life? Why are you ashamed of being called a Christian among your friends, colleagues and before sinners? What are you advertising – God or worldliness? Who do you worship and respect – the Lord Jesus Christ or your boss who brings reproach to the name of God?

“And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.” (Acts 5:40-41).

This is the time to let your light shine so bright! This generation awaits your manifestation and as a child of God you are either making God happy or celebrating wickedness. If you truly carry the light of God you will do the work that brings salvation to all. This is the end of the age and Christ will soon return. What are you going to say before his throne concerning the life you have living.

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

Are you truly for God or the world? Where do you belong brethren? Is it not becoming difficult daily to place you correctly? You are neither here or there! Can the world out there testify that you are truly a born again Christian? What is your next door neighbour saying about the faith you proclaim? Are you drawing more souls to heaven or your lifestyle, dressing, language, music and daily conduct is helping the devil to gain more followers? You need to rethink and be guided accordingly. The coming of Lord is near!

PRAYER:

Father Lord, please help me on a daily basis to stand out from the crowd and to be a channel of salvation to this world of sin.

New Glory Devotional: BUILDING A GLORIOUS HOME – Saturday October 6, 2012

By Pastor Ayo Agbelusi

Memorise: “Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:” (Proverbs 24:3).

Read: Proverbs 24:3-4

Your home is your primary place of abode and it forms the genesis of all your daily activities. It’s expected that you keep a home where love, joy and peace will reign. The presence of these three virtues will determine how much of God your home can accommodate. A peaceful home should be your desire. War and strife give no room for progress, development and success. It is therefore important that you seek wisdom to get the best of God for your home.

“The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.” (Proverbs 3:33).

Wisdom is a major prerequisite in building a home. If you will build to last, you need to consider the foundation you want to lay, carefully select the best material and seek counsel on how to make a success of the entire project. If you lack the required understanding, you are preparing for a crash in future except you seek God and ask Him to meet you at the point of your need.

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (James 1:5).

Every single brother and sister reading this devotional must not joke with the warnings of the Lord. You can only get a glorious home if you are not laying your foundation on wickedness. Who your partner is will determine how good or bad your future home will be. If your relationship is not built on the Word and the fear of the Lord, you are building a future in wickedness.

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:1)

If you choose a sinner friend for your future husband or wife, you can only expect the results of sin in your future home. What are some of these results? War, quarrel, unfaithfulness, lack of trust, selfishness, pains, etc. But if you, through the help of God and a good understanding of the counsel of the Lord about marriage, choose a godly man or woman, you can be sure that a glorious home awaits you. Remember, if the foundation is destroyed, how will you cope as a righteous person? You can only sow glorious seeds to reap a glorious future. If you fail to acknowledge the position of God in establishing a godly marriage, you will have the rest of your life to regret your unholy choices and actions.

Don’t wait to experience the pains that come from building on a wrong foundation. Your marriage won’t head towards a divorce or break up if you can build with God today. Consider your children and their future. You won’t like to see them grow wayward. Majority of the calamities in most nations of the world are caused by children from broken homes or those that lack proper parental care and love.

What is the present state of your home? Glorious or filled with pains and regret? At any level, the Lord can still help you. Take these things to God in prayer. Don’t harm yourself and don’t allow the devil deceive you by driving you further into error. God is your only solution and help in time of need. He will help you grow your home gloriously. It is well with you

PRAYER:

Father, give me the wisdom and understanding required to build a glorious home. Don’t allow me to run in error in Jesus mighty name.

RCCG Youth Convention 2012: MINDSET OF KINGDOM MILLIONAIRES by Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo

The summary of Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo’s message at the ongoing RCCG Youth Convention 2012» “The Unstoppable Generation”

MINDSET  OF KINGDOM MILLIONAIRES 

Money is like a current, it is either flowing to you or flowing away from you that is why it is called Currency. So you need to learn how to magnatise money.

 

Most people are poor because of lack of knowledge and examples/training they received from parents and authourity figures.  If you grew up in an environment that says “money is meant to be spent”, you’ll never have savings”

Psalm 66:12Every year loads of people are joining the millionaires club! God wants to raise you as a person who can make a difference in your world.

 

It is not true that there is money scarcity in the world, rather every year millions of people cross the millionaires threshold.

 

Don’t listen to the what ‘ifs’ and words of distractions around you. You work towards getting blessed first and watch God teach you how to handle it.

 

There are people who lack the right knowledge to make wealth, some Christians will cry and pray for financial breakthroughs but their financial levels never change because they haven’t obeyed the laws of wealth making.  There are certain laws you must follow to make wealth, if you don’t obey them you can’t be a millionaire!     

The law of gravity doesn’t respect anointing!

 

2 Timothy 1:7 To be a millionaire you have to overcome the spirit of fear! Things may not always go right at first but don’t let that stop you, God hasn’t given you the spirit of fear! 

 

The secret of success is that there are no secrets! If you do what others have done you will get the results other millionaires have gotten. God is no respecter of person, colour, gender or age. If you believe Him, He’ll do greater things in your life.

 

Unsaved people become financially successful because they know the proper steps to follow.  There is a time for fasting and prayers but there are certain principles you must follow! The richest man in Nigeria, Aliko Dangote is not a Christian even the young man who owns facebook is worth over 20million dollars and he isn’t born again! You have a kingdom mindset, the spirit of God dwells in you so too you can make it!

7 PRINCIPLES  TO FOLLOW

1) Have a great dream/purpose/ vision.

-Write down your dream/vision for the next 1yr, 5yrs, 10yrs- See yourself in the place of wholeness, happiness and wealth (Prov 23:7)- Ask yourself precisely  ‘where do I want to be in 5yrs?’.  Bible says God will grant the desires of our heart, if you don’t have a desire, what do you expect God to work with?

 
2) Do what you are passionate about!

Prosperity doesn’t come just because you went to uni or have a good job!  Find out what you are passionate about, pursue it and it will take you places

 
-Turn your passion into a source of income

 
– Don’t start with a NGO if you have not worked for a couple of years. Broke cannot help broke and it is difficult for a struggling person to help struggling people.

 
– Too many Christian youths are jobseekers! JOB stands for “Just Over Broke”. You can never become a billionaire through a job. No bank CEO through their official basic salary makes 1million dollars.

 
3) Find and develop your unique gift!

 
Matt25:15 God has blessed everyone of us with gifts, you’re gifted!

 – Package your skills and talents well!  All Oprah Winfrey does is talk! Women like to talk but she packaged her talk very well and she’s making big money.

 
4). See yourself as self employed whether you have a job or not!

-Those who end up millionaires don’t work the contracted “8am-4pm” “9am-5pm” hours at their place of work, they go an extra mile and work over time when needed.  

– There must be results in the hours you’re being paid for!  See the organisation you work for as yours, give it your very best and when you get your own company you’ll be disciplined enough to manage it effectively and efficiently!

 

5) Be committed to excellence!

 
-To excel means to surpass, to be ahead, to be at the top, to be NO 1.  When you are on top of your game, people will notice and respect you.        Proverbs 22:29, Proverbs 18: 16

– All successful people are good at what they do! Before you put something out there, make sure it is excellently done!

6) Develop a clear sense of direction

-Where are you going? How would you know when you get there? What are the milestones? 

-Even in your relationship, when it comes to picking who to marry, make sure you pick someone with a clear vision as you! If God wants to prosper you and you are with the wrong person it might not work out, it takes only one Jonah to sink a ship!

 

– No goal, No go! You can’t go forward without goals, set goals for direction.

– Make a plan and write it down (Habakkuk 2:2).  If you know it and it’s written down, it’s easier to remain focussed when challenges and distractions come.

 
7) Have a money mission!
 
What do you intend to do with the money when God eventually blesses you?

 
Bible says in Proverbs 1:32 that the prosperity of fools end up destroying them.

 
4 Money Missions To Follow As A Christian

 – Be a Kingdom promoter (Matthew 6:23)

– Be a blessing to your family

– Be a blessing to the household of faith (Gal 6:10)

– Be a blessing to those who are needy (James 1:29).

 
– 3 Things you need to combine as a believer.

1) The skill in which you’re trained

2) You natural abilities and inborn traits

3) The anointing of God.    

You can be wealthy if make good use of gifts, develop it and depend totally on God!

RCCG Youth Convention 2012: LET’s TALK ABOUT SEX by Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo

The summary of Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo’s message at the ongoing RCCG Youth Convention 2012» “The Unstoppable Generation”

LET’s TALK ABOUT SEX

Proverbs 4:23, Proverbs 6: 23-27

Be careful what you take in, the music and movies you watch could desensitizes you to the truth. It is the truth you know that will set you free.

Colossians 3:5-6

You are to honour God with your body, sex is not allowed outside marriage.
Even though Nike may say ‘Just do it!” You’re not to with SEX!

The simple thought of sex crossing your mind is not a sin but the desire for sex is the sin!

Sex goes beyond the physical, it’s spiritual and emotional!

In the Bible, when a man sleeps with his wife the Bible says “He knew his wife” but when a young man sleeps with an unmarried woman the Bible says “He laid with her”

Don’t let anybody deceive you, you can know them by their words. e.g “You don’t need to tell anybody what we are about to do!”

If a guy comes to you with a condom, he is a con(artist) and you are dumb!

Virginity is something you give away and not what is taken from you by force! If you were violated and tampered with, only your virginity is broken, you destiny isn’t, so don’t mess up yourself! You are still so precious in God’s sight. God values you, He values your body so honour Him with it!

85% of those who live together before getting married end up divorced. 50% of marriages in UK and 80% of black marriages in US end up in divorce!

If you sell yourself cheap, you end up being treated anyhow. A man who cannot treat you like a lady doesn’t deserve you and any woman who cannot treat you like a prince doesn’t deserve you!

Don’t start what you can’t handle! The skin is only a few centimetres deep and beneath that skin, there are 18million nerves passing information round. When ever someone touches you sexually, your nerves sends info that are stored somewhere in your brain. That’s why when you see the person later you remember the touch! You have imprints of people on your life through sexual relationships.

Don’t let anyone touch you in a way that is not holy. From hugs to kissing and then the deed happens unplanned!

Once you mess up your sexual life, it messes up your spiritual life! Get it right!

Exodus 26, 27 gives a summary of the Tabernacle. It was divided into the outer court, the Holy place, Holy of Holies. As a human being, your body is the outer court, your soul the holy place and your spirit the holy of holies!

The outer court gave access to many levities and they brought their sacrifices there. Your body is your outer court many people will have access to you, you’ll meet many boys/girls but be careful, many will come and go. Proverbs 4:23

Only the priests were allowed into the holy place. The holy in your body is your soul. Your emotions are conceived there. Before you let anyone touch your soul, be very careful! The reason many broken relationship ends up a soul tie is because they let someone else make an impact on their soul and no matter how much they try to forget the person it is difficult.

Guard your soul, don’t let just any nice person get in. The holy place had a lampstand in it, anyone who must get into your holy place was be a lamp. Ladies, any man that wants to court/date/marry you must have more light than you already have! He needs to be the lamp! Don’t settle for less!

Only the High priest was allowed to enter into the holy of holies (Hebrews 9:7) ! He had to break through the veil to get in. There is only man allowed to get into you and that is your husband! When a man sleeps with a virgin, it’s more than just sex! It’s spiritual, it’s a blood covenant!

Guys note, everywhere you go as a man and have sexual releases, your testicles will testify against you! The reason God gave you two testicles is because the Bible says out of 2 or more witnesses, a statement is established (Deuteronomy 17:6).

There is a point when sexual activities goes beyond the physical, it becomes a demonic activity! It is spiritual!

Easy sex does not make more romance, neither does not give joy and happiness!

When you have sex while waiting to be married, you crush the foundation of your marriage

Don’t let anyone blackmail you to stay in a relationship! After giving your life to Christ break away from every ungodly relationship!

Titus 2:11-12

To get out:

It requires the decision to maintain your integrity!

It requires a bold step to confront ungodly relationship you are in!

Break away and make a vow to be pure!

Keep yourself and honour God with your life!

No sex is safe sex!

Desire change, deny yourself!

RCCG Youth Convention 2012: THE UNSTOPPABLE CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE by Pastor (Mrs) Folu Adeboye

This is a Summary of Mummy GO’s message from the ongoing RCCG Youth Convention 2012» “The Unstoppable Generation”

 

THE UNSTOPPABLE CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE

 
Gen 1:27-28, Ephesians 5: 21- 33

It is very important you don’t miss it when it comes to picking who to marry. If you marry wrongly, you can’t enjoy your life to the fullest.

 
Anything we call Christian is of Christ. So a Christian marriage starts with Christ. The basic foundation for a Christian marriage is for both the man and woman involved to be saved and redeemed! 

 
In a Christian marriage, there is no room for divorce or exchange of spouse, as a result one needs a firm foundation in Jesus to be able to withstand some pressures that may arise.

There is time for everything, when it is time for you to settle down, the Holy spirit Himself will minister to you. When have the urge to getting married, don’t just rush into it, wait upon the Lord for directions (Isaiah 40:31).  Don’t go after your desires and lust, in waiting, ask, seek and knock. Ask God to show you his will your life.

 

God’s will for your life could be revealed to you through dreams, visions, word of knowledge, word of God, deep convictions in the spirit. 

 
Ladies,  it is prohibited for you to go tell a man ‘You’re my husband’. Ladies never proposed to men in the Bible and anything outside the Bible isn’t the standard. It is all modern doctrine for a woman to go after the man, wait on God and He’ll bring the right person.

After waiting on God and He has shown you the revelation, don’t go to the person straight, go tell your pastor. That is RCCG doctrine! Tell your pastor so they can pray along and do some investigation about the person.

Also tell your parents about it! They also will pray and carry out any necessary background checks. In the midst of counsellors, you won’t go wrong! 

When your pastor and parents have confirmed it, the man and woman then need to come into agreement. You start courtship.

 
In courtship, you don’t meet up in secret places, be transparent! Protect yourself from evil, don’t give room to the devil. There have been many sad stories of Christian singles getting pregnant before marriage. Have your meetings in an open place, e.g your pastors house.

 

Get to know each other during courtship. If you enter into marriage with deceit, you’ll reap it later! Show your true colours to your partner!

If in courtship, you realise the marriage won’t work, it is better to call it off, get out of it before it is too late!  A broken courtship is much better than a broken marriage.

 

During courtship, you need to go for counselling. All RCCG churches do marriage counselling, don’t try to avoid it, it will help you and the experiences of older couples will come in handy after the wedding.

 

After courtship and counselling have been successful, proceed to the altar! 

The material benefits you get before marriage doesn’t determine how good the marriage will eventually be. The secret to many successful Christian marriage is contentment! 

 
Don’t take a loan for marriage! Cut your coat according to your size!

 
Prepare your mind! You don’t know who you dated in courtship  well enough until you start living together! 6years after the marriage  you will still be discovering new things about the person. 

 

Prayer is important even after the wedding as practical living is different from all the pre-martial/ honeymoon excitement!

 

After the wedding, women are to submit to their husbands! Even if you are older, still submit. Even when you don’t agree, submit first, be nice and put your suggestions forward in a nice and peaceful way!

 

As a woman, accept the leadership of your husband and respect him. If he can only afford ‘N20,000’ take it and use it wisely. You have to be able to manage resources very well! 

 

In a marriage, there will be a time of plenty and time of scarcity! Endure, be patient with each other and manage what you have together.

RCCG Youth Convention 2012: FATHERLY ADVICE TO THE UNSTOPPABLE YOUTHS BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

There is a difference between enthusiasm and unruliness. As unstoppable youths we need to be enthusiastic but not unruly.

 
Out of all the instruments mentioned in the Bible for praising the whistle wasn’t mentioned! The whistle isn’t allowed in church, leave it for the football field!

 

MARRIAGE advice for the Ladies

It is better to remain single than to marry than to marry the wrong person! 

 
Marrying the wrong person is like living in hell on earth and divorce isn’t an option!

Don’t ever think you can marry somebody and change the fellow, if the person doesn’t change before you get married it is a settled case!

If you marry just because a guy is rich, tall and handsome but he not a true child of God, you are heading for trouble! Goliath was Tall, king Saul was lanky but he lost his crown. Don’t marry a fool.    

 
If a guy is following you to church just to get you , you will know!  some guys are in church just to deceive you but the Bible says by their fruits you’ll know them. Bible didn’t say by their words you’ll know them , some guys have sweet mouth! Don’t marry a sweet talking demon, watch their fruits!

 
If you marry someone who doesn’t believe in holiness, you are the one who dug your own grave yourself becuase you’ll only be wife NO 1, many others are likely follow!

 

Romans 8:31 The reason RCCG weds with the Bible instead of a ring is because the Bible can never change, the word of God stands forever but a ring can be removed at anytime!

 
Those who will reach the top must be peculiar! There is always room at the top but only few will get there.

 
Don’t marry a man who has no job! Before God gave Adam a wife, He gave him a job! If he says he is a contractor, ask him for evidence of his previous contracts because you might just be the contract he is on about!

 

MARRIAGE advice for the GENTs

Don’t marry a Delilah! Don’t marry for beauty . Proverbs 31:30 says beauty is vain.

 

Don’t ever marry outside the church and you have no reason to marry outside RCCG. The reason is that If you are both from the same church even when trouble comes it is easier for the pastors to handle it!

 

Don’t marry a girl simply because she can sing! In the choir there are some people that can sing but they are falling angels! Marry a prayer warrior! If a girl cannot pray for 1 hour, don’t marry her.

 

Don’t marry a girl who is lazy! Don’t marry a girl who cannot cook, she needs to know how to do cores and cook because you cannot afford to be eating out all the time.

 

Don’t marry a girl who is worldly! If you do, you have carried what you’ll worship for the rest of your life!

 

Advice on MUSIC.

Music is not music unless it is organised. It must have rhyme, rhythm and repetition. 

While the right kind of music keeps the devil away, the wrong music can invite demons. 

 

The number one reason why God chose David to be king was because he was a musician singing the right songs!

 
It is possible to have wonderful music, music that will refresh you and bring God down without making noise.  When the Bible talks about making a joyful noise to the Lord, it was talking about shouts of Halleluyah. 

 

In your gatherings, check the lyrics, rhyme and rhythms  of your songs you use in worshipping God. As much as  youths might not want to sing hymns all day, make sure the songs you sing are really glorifying God not just noise.

Advice on EVANGELISM

As youths, take evangelism seriously! Use your youthful strength for God and be proud to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. Ecclesiastes 12:1

 

It takes only a few people to cause a riot the universities, why can’t a few unstoppable youths get up and start a riot to the kingdom of darkness? 

 

RCCG is in many nations all over the world today because your parents worked hard in their youths. When the founder, Pa Akindayomi, died, RCCG was only in Nigeria and I was only 38 when the church was handed over to me. Other youths and I took evangelism seriously! We worked hard to bring the church to where it is now, today RCCG is in many nations of the world! IT IS YOUR TURN to take the church forward.

 

Joshua 1:1-9, Deuteronomy 34:9 We are to build on the foundation that has been laid for us by our fathers.  

 

The elders are the foundation, the youths are the flowers! It’s a dangerous thing to be a flower, people pluck flowers but hardly do people touch the roots!If you stay connected to your roots, you’ll not dry up.

 

The one who is UNSTOPPABLE is the one who wouldn’t allow sin to come in because our God is a Holy God!

 

If you will worship God with good music not just noise , if you’ll witness without compromising, if you will be different and ready to stand out for Christ, if you are willing to pray with ceasing then you’ll be UNSTOPPABLE.

New Glory Devotional: THE POWER IN YOUR TONGUE 2 – Friday, October 5, 2012

By Pastor Ayo Agbelusi

Memorise: “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice.” [Eph. 4: 31]

Read: Eph. 4: 29-31

We shall continue today from yesterday’s message on the power in your tongue. It is evident from the text we read yesterday (James 3:1-12) that your tongue, though a little member of your body has enough power to direct your whole life. The rightful use of this member of your body will enhance productivity, progress and success, not only in your life but also in the lives of the people you come in contact with. As a bona fide child of God, it’s therefore expected that you get your words seasoned with grace such that you minister life and not death each time you communicate or respond to issues around you.

“Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer every man.” Colossians 4:6

You can lead a quiet and peaceable life if you will allow the Holy Spirit to tame your tongue.” But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.” James 3:8. You need God to be able to speak the right words.  Your marriage can never be heaven on earth if you fail to learn how to turn the usage of your tongue around for good in all modesty and humility. Many homes are in shambles today because of mere exchange of words. Likewise many great relationships have hit the rocks because of the wrong use of words. A lady confessed to me how she missed the love of her life because she couldn’t control her manner of speech during discussions. You should know that what you say with your mouth can never be interpreted the same way by different listeners. Also, once you have spoken, you can never take back what you said. You must therefore be careful when releasing your words so that your intentions will not be misconstrued.

Beloved, it’s time you examine yourself. Do you speak the right words or use foul language? James 3:9-10 says: “Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.” You can desire a change today. You can develop the virtue of holy silence. Holy silence produces peace, reconciliation, forgiveness, etc. It doesn’t defend itself, argue, and seek the last word. Moreover it teaches you to bridle your tongue. You won’t need to talk all the time. Must you be known everywhere or speak on every issue? Jesus is the example in this regard. “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.” Isa. 53:7.

You can also take this issue of your tongue to God in prayers. David did pray: “Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.” Ps. 142:3. Until the door of your lips is kept from foul and annoying words, you may not enjoy the desired peace on the earth.  The word of the Lord says: “Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter anything before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.” Eccl.5:2. The later part of  Eccl.5:3 reads: “a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.”

Make up your mind to speak the right words at all times. The word of God is the best word ever known. You are either speaking the mind of God or the counsel of the devil. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom. Read more of the scriptures to get a good picture of what is expected of you per time. Don’t allow the word of the Lord to depart from your mouth, mediate on it day and night (Joshua 1:8). The more you dwell on His words the better you become as a Christian and with the help of the Holy Spirit, your tongue will begin to produce life and not death. Beloved, as you yield yourself continuously to God, you will forever be a blessing to the generations of the world. Don’t ever forget this: There’s Power in your Tongue.

PRAYER:

Father, help me to yield every member of my body to the control of the Holy Spirit. I refuse to be a victim of the wrong usage of my tongue.

New Glory Devotional: THE POWER IN YOUR TONGUE 1 – Thursday, October 4, 2012

By Pastor Ayo Agbelusi

Memorise: “For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.” (James 3:2).

Read: James 3:1-12

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” (Proverbs 18:21).

Your tongue, though little, is a strong member of your body that you must not use carelessly. If you live carelessly with your tongue, you will in no time live a careless life on the earth. The tongue is a major control of the body. If your body is under total control, you can be sure a glorious life awaits you here on earth.

Many have been destroyed due to the misuse of their tongues. Idle words are dangerous. They have a direct negative impact on the life you live. You can’t make wrongful negative confessions about your situation and your life and expect positive results afterwards. What you think is what you’ll say and what you say has every right to stay. “Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:” (Numbers 14:28).

Your tongue is so powerful. It reveals your personality and depth. Your words are the yardstick by which your wisdom and your level of spiritually are measured. It’s better to remain silent than to bring yourself low due to the wrong use of words. Your tongue will not only build or destroy your life, it also has the same effect on the lives of the people you come in contact with. You can make a glorious destiny through the correct use of your tongue and you can also destroy an enviable destiny when you talk loosely about people and things you know nothing about. You are either building or destroying destinies by the way you use your tongue.

“Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.” (James 3:10).

We have seen many born again Christians of long-standing whose tongues yet defile. How can you confess Jesus genuinely and your words not prove you have been with the Lord. The fruits of the lips of so many Christians are worse than that of some unbelievers. Foul words, unholy jesting, crazy jokes, dirty language and even cursing are some fruits we see in out midst. But hear the word of the Lord to you concerning this: “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” (Ephesians 4:29).

What are you offering God and man from your lips? “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name.” (Hebrews 13:15). Don’t deceive yourself, you know where you belong as far as the use of the tongue is concerned. If that member of your body is not under control, if God is not continually blessed and if the people around you cannot testify of the good words from your lips, then you need to check yourself and make all necessary adjustments.

PRAYER:

Please help me to control my whole body and life through the right use of my tongue.

New Glory Devotional: BE COURAGEOUS – Wednesday October 3, 2012

By Pastor Ayo Agbelusi

Memorise: “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” (Joshua 1:9).

Read: Joshua 1:7-9

One characteristic that made David to stand out in the battles of life was courage. He was fully determined to conquer. Courage is being afraid but refusing to fear. Courage is never enabled until there’s a reason to fear. I remember as a child in the village, how fearful it was when we saw a snake coming near our house one day. The saving grace then, was the ability to summon up courage to destroy the venomous beast.

It is required as we progress in life that we always be courageous. Life is never a fanfare as many make it out to be. It’s actually a warfare. No man stands in the midst of a dreadful battle without fear of being killed, wounded or maimed. The only access to victory in the battles of life is courage to move on and never give in to fear.

“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” (Joshua 1:9).

You are commanded to be courageous. It was not an advice. It’s mandatory that you begin to see victories in those battles facing your marriage, business, education and ministry. You are not expected to give up. “And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:” (Exodus 14:15). Fear brings setbacks and defeat. Courage compels victory and success. If you through fear retire in the midst of life’s struggles, you’ll end up a prey in the camp of the enemy.

David moved towards the roaring Goliath with faith and unwavering courage. He conquered the enemy of his time by believing and acting on the word of God. You don’t know how successful you’ll become in that business if you don’t have the courage to start. I once spoke with a lady who said she could not take up a university programme because she wasn’t sure she would make it in the course being offered her by the school management. People will come to discourage you in that business. They will show you 101 reasons why failure is inevitable. The choice is yours to believe your God for the supernatural or to lose your miracle to fear.

What is that assignment before you? How lofty is that project? You can only win if you have enough courage to start. The very day you begin to confront your fears is the day your open door to unlimited victory starts. You will return with your victory songs in Jesus mighty name.

PRAYER

I receive grace to conquer my fear. I’m not giving up because victory is mine. Halleluyah!

New Glory Devotional: THE CHOICE IS YOURS – Tuesday, October 2, 2012

By Pastor Ayo Agbelusi

Memorise: “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (Joshua 24:15).

Read: Joshua 24:13-15

God has never forced His will on man. He can only encourage you to follow that path that will enhance your success, productivity and fulfilment. You have the right to choose which way you are to follow, either the right or the left. In fact, some may chose stagnation just like the children of israel did when they desired to return to Egypt because of their love for the cucumber, garlic and onions.

You are a direct product of the decisions you made yesterday. Whether positive or negative, you must have a result for every step you take. This is the reason why you can’t afford to choose wrongly. You must consciously look through your plan to be sure you are not on the wrong path.

Your choices will always speak. The results that you get will announce all that you have done in your secret heart. At the level of results, the whole world will come to the knowledge of all you have done either with yourself or with the Lord.

Is your choice in line with the counsel of God for your life? The Bible says: “There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.” (Proverbs 19:21). This scripture is only applicable to those who are set to obey the Lord. It’s for the strong hearted who will patiently consider what God is saying concerning their present situation.

The Word of God can never lead you astray. If you will drop the dictates of your flesh, the lust of your eyes and refrain from pride, you will have unlimited access to the abundant grace made available by God. He’s speaking to you right now. He says choose life and live! Embrace His truth and be free from the deceit of men.

Beloved, the choice is yours. It’s either God’s choice or self-choice. May you not be led in error in Jesus name.

PRAYER:

Father, open my eyes of understanding that I may discover Your choice for my life. Don’t ever allow me to choose to my own damnation.
