New Glory Devotional: TRAIN UP A CHILD – Monday, October 15, 2012

By Pastor Ayo Agbelusi

Memorise: “And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.” (Isaiah 54:13).

Read: Proverbs 4: 20-22

It’s not enough to just have children, it’s required that every single child born into a family be trained in the way of the Lord to forestall future evil and unrest. Several trainings abound from one family to the other. You can’t get good or peace from a child whose future was built on faulty foundation. If you fail in your role as a parent, you are most likely to face a future of total unrest and sorrow.

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6).

Let every parent be so guided.

Children learn mostly through examples and direct pictures. It’s not enough to just tell them what to do. They will copy what you do. The life of a parent has either positive or negative effect on the growth and development of a child. You must remember that you are directly accountable for whatsoever happens to every single child in your care. Those children are not yours, they belong to God. He has chosen you as custodians and caretakers on the earth and will require an account of them from you. You can’t afford to mess around with them.

“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” (Psalm 127:3).

Are you training your children to fear and love the Lord or have you handed them over to the present day media to corrupt their simple hearts and minds with immoral songs, movies and worldly languages? Corrupt children will produce corrupt families which will in turn lead to a corrupt society! But what you don’t have you can’t offer. If you are out of order as a parent, it will be difficult to correct a erring child. You need to live correctly to be a blessing to your children. If you are sold out to parties, evil relationships, gossips and the rest, you should expect these traits from your wards except the Lord has mercy. It will be too painful to see your children inherit any of your bad traits. Correct your lifestyle now and be drawn to God through faith and genuine repentance.

“For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.” (Genesis 18:19).

What is God saying about your family? Are you an example of good training to children in any way? What kind of life are you leading? What message are you passing across to your household as a mother? If your children are not getting God, they will embrace the devil through worldliness. There’s is the rod and the word of the Lord for your use. You should always pray for these children and lead them in the way they should go. Don’t leave the upbringing of your children to your house helps. Spend quality time at home to show them love and care and be concerned about their growth generally. If you seek peace in your future as a father or mother, invest solidly now on the best spiritual, academic and moral training of your God-given children. “And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.” (Isaiah 54:13).

Bastards are not far fetched in our present society. What produces evil children is lack of proper and adequate discipline and home training. “But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.” (Hebrews 12:8). You need to check your home again, what type of children are you raising? Those that will showcase the good father in you or those that will bring shame to your family name in future. You can’t get the best from your family if you fail to offer and sacrifice the best. Act wisely now and train up your household in the right ways for successful living. You will have peace eternally and it shall be well with you.

PRAYER:

Father, help me to raise godly and blessed children on the earth.

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.

In the life of everyone here tonight and all those who are listening to us by radio, by television, on the Internet all over the world tonight Lord, do something new.

Let someone shout halleluiah!

 

As of 6.25pm the number of babies born during this convention has risen to sixty eight (68).

 

PRAYER FOR AUGUST CHILDREN

Father, I want to thank You for your children born in the month of August, the eight month is the month of new beginnings.

 

In the life of all these your children, let there be new beginnings; new beginnings of joy, new beginnings of success, new beginning of promotions, new beginning of mighty testimonies, new beginning of a closer work with God, let it be well with them, and give them many more years of useful service for the Lord, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

 

August children shout halleluiah!

 

I ask God for seventy thousand children and I have been keeping record, the number of children born in Redeemed Christian Church of God at the beginning of this convention we already got sixty thousand nine hundred and seventy nine (60,979) and I know the rest will come. One thing I want to ask God for tonight is to increase from 70,000 to 100,000.

 

As usual September will be a special Holy Ghost service for those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, so if you have any relative or friend, tell them about the special Holy Ghost service coming up next month for those who are believing God for children.

 

The topic next month is A GLORIOUS GENERATION.  That means the children God will release next month, they are going to form a glorious generation. So next month there will be no Shiloh hour.

 

Another thing I love as I love children is marriages. In Nigeria alone, between August last year and now we conducted eleven thousand one hundred and sixty two (11,162) weddings. That tells you that the Lord is doing marvellous things among our youths.

 

As part of the faithfulness of God to The Redeemed Christian Church of God, we have also been able to enter into thirteen new nations.

COME UP HIGHER: Summary of Pastor Adeboye’s Message on Friday, August 10, 2012

5TH DAY SUMMARY

TOPIC: COME UP HIGHER

 

JOHN 5 V 2-9 One day unexpectedly his jubilee , his jubilee came because Jesus came by and saw him  and say come up higher and he asked him to come up higher and immediately he was healed. Come up higher could be lighter of two things; it could either be an invitation or a command.

The one who is going to ask you to come higher; must have been in a higher place himself. Psalm 91 v 1. Eccl 5 v 8 calls him the one who is higher than the highest. He is higher than all of us. The one who is calling to come up higher must have the ability to help you climb. He must also have the power to deal with those forces that are trying to hold you down.

You must be willing to come up higher; you must obey the one who asked you to come up higher according to Isaiah 5 v 19. When God calls you to come up higher, you must have faith in God Heb 11 v 6, Mark 9 v 23. When God calls you to come up higher, you must make all the necessary efforts to go up higher even if all you can do is to pray.

Everybody knows that life is in levels; there is the level of the poor, the level of the comfortable, the rich, the wealthy, the prosperous, the flourishing I don’t know which level you are today, but in the name that is every other names level will change tonight in Jesus name. . The rich save money, the wealthy put money in fixed deposit, and the prosperous lends to nation.

 

There are levels when you are talking about health, the sick, those who are healed, those who are healthy and they don’t even know what is called headache, and there are the levels of those who if they touched you at all , you will be healed, they carry the healing virtue.

There is the level of the healing handkerchief. Act 19 v 11-12 tells us that from the body of Paul handkerchief were taken to the sick and they were healed. There is the level of the healing voice, just speak the word and it is done.

 

You can move from the healing voice to the healing shadow Act 5 v 14-16 tells us the shadow of peter was healing the sick.

We talk about greatness there are levels, Abraham was great his son was very great, his grandson was exceedingly great, you may be great already, God says come up higher, you may be greater already; God says come up higher let’s make you exceedingly great. There is another level from success to great success, from Great success to frightening success according to Luke 5 v 1 -11

There are also levels of victories; from victory to great victory, from great victory to victory without a fight. Then there is victory that will frighten the victor.

There are Levels of joy; from sad to happy, from joy to great joy then exceeding great joy according to Matthew 2 v 10. Then Joy unspeakable, it’s so great you can’t even say it out.

When God gives you an invitation; you have a choice, you can refuse an invitation. Even when he commands you, you have a choice to obey or disobey. But tonight, since you have taken all the troubles to come, don’t refuse the invitation of God.

How will I know that I will go higher? The bible says the just shall live by faith. You are going to pray by faith tonight.

 

Prayer Points from Day 5 of RCCG 60th Convention
1)   Father change my level TONIGHT! Take me higher than I have ever been before!

2)  Father, pull me out of the miry clay, never to return. The miry clay of sickness, failure, poverty.

3)   Father, all the forces that have kept me on the same level all these years, scatter them TONIGHT! Those forces that didn’t allow me to climb scatter them. Those forces working against my promotion scatter them. Those forces keeping me on the level of poverty  and failure scatter them.

4)   Father, all those who have been asking me where is My God. Show them TONIGHT! Because I have been barren, show them. Because I can’t make ends meet, show them TONIGHT by taking me higher!

5)   Father, everything that pertains to me, perfect it TONIGHT!

THE PURPOSE OF VICTORY by Pastor E.A. Adeboye » Thursday, August 9, 2012 Message summary  

Pastor Enoch Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adeboye

Come Up Higher » the 60th Annual RCCG Convention: Thursday August 9, 2012 Message summary  

4th day’s Summary of Daddy GO’s Message

THE PURPOSE OF VICTORY

Text:  Exodus 8 v 1

 

One of the philosophers of the ancient days says the greatest problem of victory is what to do with it.

 
After you have become victorious, what next?  After freedom, after release, after jubilee, after restoration what next? 

Many people plan for wedding; they even plan for honey moon without planning for marital life. When the honey moon is over what next?

No plan, husband and wife returns from honey moon and darling say “where is my breakfast?” and the wife says breakfast?

So many girls plan for their wedding, not knowing that after the honeymoon the wife is supposed to wake up one hour before the husband to prepare breakfast.

Many people celebrate graduation, then what next? what if I don’t get a job, what do I do then? Many people plan for house dedication but they don’t plan for maintenance. I remembered when I bought my first car; my friend says congratulation but from now on you have to put your eye on the oil gauge.

Brethren after jubilee what next? After healing what next? Because God is going to heal you during this convention, after breakthrough what next? 

There are categories of bondage, battles that people fight; there is physical bondage Luke 13 and in 2 king 5 v 1.

Naaman was famous and rich but Naaman was a leper.

Then there is material bondage according to 2king 4 v 1 -7

Then we can have physical and material bondage according to Mark 5 v 25-34.

Then there is spiritual bondage, an example is Mary Magdalene according to Luke 8 v 1 -3. Then we have a case where all three types of bondage are together according to Mark 5 v 1 -15. It tells us about the mad man of Gedaren who was possessed by 6000 demons.

But the good news tonight, is that victory is possible, I want to go a step further to announce that victory is on your way because the God of Jubilee who is the God of Redeemed Christian Church of God is here tonight. 

And according to Psalm 24 v 7-10 He can set you free from any form of bondage.

Victory has issues, and I will just mention may be just two. The first issue with victory is that the devil loves to attack immediately after a victory, in 1 Samuel 17 v 34 – 37 David said I was watching my father’s flock, a lion came and grabbed one of the flock, I grabbed it and smote it.

You thought the devil will let him be, immediately  the bear came and he also smote it then the devil says if you can handle animal, we will give you Goliath and by God’s grace he killed him. 

Then the devil arranged some women and they composed an impromptu song that made him have a greater enemy than he has ever have; his father in law.

The most dangerous time is immediately after a victory, I know this and that is why I am always careful of celebrations. I can give you several examples; take Gideon after one victory comes another attack that is one issue.

But the issue they asked me to speak on tonight is what do I do with victory, when am healed what do I do next, 

John5 v 2 -14 . If don’t want to say goodbye to sin ask God to leave you alone, be as you are because if you do and you are still in sin, a greater sickness will come.

The first thing to do after a victory is to thank God Exodus 15 v 1 -11, Luke 8 v 1-3, ask the mad man of Garasene Mark 5 v 18 -20 after his healing he came to Jesus and say I will go with you everywhere you Go, and Jesus said I have an assignment for you, “go and tell others “and he won an entire city for God. 

If you are deliver and you don’t tell other about it the bible says the demon that has gone out will come back with more dangerous demons. Your deliverance will be permanent.

Don’t be like Samson who was brought bound to his external enemy but the Almighty God rose and fought his battle for him, but what did he do ? John 16 v 1-3 he just got up and went to a harlot’s house.

What do I do with victory? It is a good thing to prosper but Proverbs 1 v 32 says the prosperity of fools will destroy them. When you look at Exodus 12 v 35-36 the Bible tells us that when the children of Israel were leaving Egypt on that great night of deliverance, they went to the Egyptians and collected the salary that their father had not received in one hundred years they collected it in one night. What did they do with it? 

 
Exodus 32 v 1 -6 they went to Aaron and said they want a God they can see, and Aaron asked them to bring all their gold and it was used to mould a golden image for them.

I have told you stories of those who were strong Christian until the Lord prospered them. I know those of us who use to fast and pray, because it was easy to fast then because there isn’t much anyway. Then prosperity came… the prosperity that will take you away from the almighty God, will never give it to you.

Zachariah tells us what to use the prosperity for, we are to build churches with prosperity, the word of God says you can have prosperity and enjoy it for the rest of your life according to Job 36 v 11.

 
What are you to do with victory? 1Sam 2 V 1 -2 After David defeated Goliath and king Saul attacked him, he ran to the cave of Adullam and Vagabonds gather themselves to him and he turned them to mighty men so that by the time we get 2Sam 23 V 8, God wants you to tell people about God, God wants to prosper you so
that you can open your house up for house fellowship. 

 
The Almighty God wants to prosper you so you can  sponsor television program.

Now that you know what to do with victory, you can now demand from Pharaoh. i.e whatever represent Pharaoh in your life, demons, barrens, failure, whatever did not allow you to go higher, you can now say to  Pharaoh , hear the word of the Lord, let me go!

 
One of the things I like about the almighty God is that whenHhe arises to fight for you, He can do a very good job Exodus 4 v 22 v 23.

God will give you victory tonight, provided you will use it for winning souls, for praising God, for making disciple, for giving your house for house fellowships

THAT I MAY KNOW HIM: Summary of Pastor Adeboye’s Message on Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Updates from the 60th Annual RCCG Convention.  Come Up Higher

Topic: THAT I MAY KNOW HIM 

Text: Philippians 3 v 7- 11

 
Paul said I want to know Him. Knowledge is power and ignorance is destruction. The word of God says my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. When Paul who is an apostle says he wants to know Jesus, where do you stand?

 
There are many aspects to the life and ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ; there is the aspect of Him as the Saviour, there is the aspect of Him as the Healer and there is the aspect of Him as the Deliverer. 

What aspect of Him did Paul wants to know? I think he is interested in the aspect of Jesus Christ as the Truth. He wanted to know more about the truth.

So we will be talking about the truth here tonight, even though the truth can be bitter.

 
There are three levels of truths:

First. The basic truth, Secondary truth and thirdly a little bit of the higher truth.

Basic truth: Nothing goes for nothing.

The bible tells us clearly that salvation is free, but salvation is free only because someone pays for it 1 John 1 v 7. 

Divine healing is free; but someone paid the price. 

Nothing goes for nothing, that is the pure basic truth. It is possible never to be sick again, in the year of jubilee. 

You can receive your healing and never be sick again. It is possible to enjoy prosperity for the rest of your life according to Deuteronomy 28 v 11 – 12.

 
Secondary truth: There are two powerful forces controlling life; one is called curse, the other is called blessing. 

They both determine what happen to a man. 

What is cause? a curse is an invitation to all forces to work against someone Genesis 29 v 1 4. 

When someone who is under a curse, everything he touches fails and curse flows down like a river.

If it is pronounced on one man, God have mercy on the children. You can ask the people of Jericho 2 kings 2 v 19.

The other force is Blessing; a blessing is a summon to all forces to support somebody and make sure he succeeds. 

When somebody is blessed, every door he knocks opens. 

In Genesis 27: 26- 29 there you see Isaac blessing Jacob. When someone is blessed nobody can stop him, a blessing can pick the younger and make him superior to the older Genesis 28: 1- 13, Deuteronomy 33 v 17. 

When you are blessed, enemy that comes before you will fall before you. 

You will be head and not tail. If there is anything you need from your parent before they die, is their blessings: because Money can finish but blessings open doors.

– 

Higher level truth: The year jubilee is the year of release, it is the year of restitution but we want to hear about healing, power, prosperity but not restitution. 

 

Whatever you get that is not yours must be restored. Galatians 6 v 7 whatever you sow you shall reap.

2Coritians 5 v 6, Matthew 13 v 3 -9. If you sow wind you will reap whirlwind. 

The year of jubilee does not mean when you sow you won’t reap.   2 Samuel v 1-12. It is only one way to avoid evil that you have planted and that is if you go to where you plant it and uproot it.

If you think that seed you sow is gone, then you don’t even know the basics law of agriculture. That which you sow is waiting in the future unless you can restitute your way 2 Corinthians 11 v 22 – 25.

I will tell you this story, several years ago around 1961, I was a teacher in a particular village, there was a man who is very though, when you are passing in front of his house you must be careful, and he has only one daughter. 

One day six boys raped his daughter till she fainted, when he came they told him what happened. People were waiting for him to act. He asked if his daughter was alive, they said the girl was alive, what will he do about it, he said nothing. He said he is only reaping what he sowed, that when he was young he raped a girl.

 
Do you have any money you stole, or maneuver return it back otherwise it will destroy your good works.

If you think because nobody sees you, the evil will be forgotten, you are deceiving yourself.

There is something that is not yours that is in your possession, go and restitute to enjoy the year of jubilee 

You took somebody else wife and brought it in your life Genesis12 v 11-20.

Many of us think that we can treat restitution as something trivial, it is not so. Read Mal 3 v 3 – 10

The Almighty God is a merciful God, God is supreme and He will do what He said He would do provided you follow His principle. Blessings can be reversed, I can show you several people who got blessed and then they forgot God and the blessing became a curse.

 
Come up higher! 

Anyone who wants to rise must get rid of weight Heb 12 v 1. Sin is a weight, get rid of it and restitute

RCCG 60th convention commences

By SAM EYOBOKA & OLAYINKA LATONA

MEMBERS of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, have started arriving the Redemption Camp, venue of the 60th annual convention of the church which begins today with the ordination of deacons and deaconesses.

Among the first arrivals, are senior members of the church who had to arrive early enough from different parts of the country for the Ministers’ Conference which started on Thursday.

The week long event which is preceded by a three-day Ministers’ Conference is designed to spiritually equip pastors, assistant pastors, deacons, deaconesses, elders, evangelists and other ministers of the church and prepare them for the different roles expected of them during the programme.

Theme of this year’s programme is ‘Come Up Higher’ and it is expected to feature ministrations by different anointed ministers of the gospel who will support the chief host and the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye.

All events including the ordinations and seminars will take place at the Holy Ghost Arena of the Redemption Camp and the Camp Manager, Pastor A.F. Elufowoju has assured participants of safety of their properties throughout the duration of the programme.

He told our reporter that security personnel as well as traffic managers would be drawn from Lagos and Ogun states to ensure free-flow of traffic while advising participants to make use of the facilities in the camp including the numerous car parks.

Work on the camp

Work on the Camp began in 1983 while the General Overseer was said to have moved into the place on  October 1, 1985 when the entire place was still one huge forest.

Though the place was a forest, everyone hailed the choice. To begin with, it was found out to be somewhere easy to relocate to and accessible to members who would come from Abeokuta, Ibadan, Ilesa, Ilorin, Akure and other places.

Living there was initially out of mind, all that was planned was somewhere that would accommodate church members during conventions.

Welcome address by Pastor Adeboye

Dear Beloved Brethren,

IT is with great joy and gladness of heart that we welcome you to the 60th annual convention of this glorious mission. The Lord has indeed been very gracious to us, showing us great mercies, miracles, deliverance, victories, provision. We also bless the name of the Lord for keeping you alive in His mercy, since last time we gathered here.

This convention is an invitation of our heavenly Father to behold the King, His power and His greatness. He is asking us to ‘Come Up Higher’ through the highway of holiness, increased faith and purity, enlarged vision, and an ever increasing greatness unto glorious expectations.

“…and a highway shall be there, and a way and it shall be called the way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the way faring men, though fools, shall not err there-in.” (Isaiah 35:8).

There is a place specially prepared for those who yield to the invitation to Come Up Higher. A position of higher level of power, grace, glory, mercy, joy, total victory, success, prosperity and deliverance. This is why you have come, be prepared to receive LIFE in its fullness!

We encourage you to personally and passionately see Him by availing yourself of the various seminars,and plenary sessions. Prayerfully commit yourself and your future to deep intimacy with Jesus Christ. Drink in deeply of His presence and do not allow yourself to be distracted.

It is our desire that the power of the Holy Spirit may arise within you and cause you to long for more of Him daily from now till you are filled to overflowing.

There is room at the top for you, see you there in Jesus name.

PASTOR E. A ADEBOYE

Open Heavens Devotional: BUILD UP INTERNALLY – Friday, June 22, 2012

By Pastor E.A. Adeboye

 

Memorise: That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith: that ye, being rooted and grounded in love. Ephesians 3:17

Read: Ephesians 3:17-20

When God decides to bless an individual, it will affect him all round. God can go as far as using the person’s enemy to bless him. We have an example of this in Numbers 23:16-24. Here Balaam was hired to curse. He opened his mouth to curse the children of Israel but blessings came out instead. This is one of God’s benefits to the ones that He loves. He can turn a curse into a blessing depending on who is involved. Every curse against you and your family shall become blessings in Jesus name. Once God blesses you, nobody can reverse it except you. The moment God says you are blessed; things will begin to happen in quick succession. If your work was not prospering, it will begin to prosper, but if you stray from Him, what was easy will become hard. If what you used to do effortlessly is now being done with a lot of struggle, God may be calling for your attention. It is possible you may have strayed from His path. Examine yourself and reconnect as quickly as possible.

Even when you follow Him with all your heart, your prosperity may not come overnight, but be rest assured that it will surely come. Some testimonies are best kept with the testifiers because if they are shared, people will say God is partial. God can bless you beyond measure because His name is Jehovah El-Shaddai. That request you think is too great is nothing to Him. When you fail to ask exactly what you need, thinking you are becoming excessive, you are only acting in doubt. Ephesians 3:20 says:

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.

From this scripture, the working of God in your life is a function of the measure of His presence or power in your life. If you want God to do the impossible for and through you, you must ensure that His presence inside you grows tremendously. Investing in knowing God is not in vain. Ask Him to fill every void in you to a point that only Jesus would be seen in all you say and do.

 

PRAYER POINT:

Pray according to Ephesians 3:17; that your heart may be rooted and grounded in love.

Bible in one year: Colossians 1-2
