The Hope of the Believer 2

🔊Download the Audio☞ bit.ly/aud1929 1 Corinthians 15:19 (KJV) If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. When Debo started going to church, he did so because he was told that people who go to the church succeed in their businesses, and he wanted to succeed. Each time a testimony of financial breakthrough was given, he wanted to key into it by doing what the people who gave the testimony did. But as Debo continued to go to church and listen to the word of God, he believed in the Lord Jesus and his hope in Christ shifted from earthly prosperity alone to true eternal riches. God indeed blesses His people. But if earthly blessing is all we hope in Christ for, we would live miserable lives as believers because we would still be under the influence of the prince of this world who can steal earthly treasures and break our hearts because our heart’s affection lies where our treasure is (Matt 6:21). But if we shift our focus from earthly riches to true eternal riches, we would be invincible to the kingdom of darkness. You can use your faith to lay for yourself only earthly treasures that cannot resist the prince of this world. But your faith is powerful enough to lay for you eternal treasures that give you a voice in the spirit that the kingdom of darkness cannot resist. Go into today remembering that as a believer, your hope and faith in Christ is much more powerful than merely securing your life here on earth. It has the ability to secure your entire eternity. Don’t live a miserable life by squandering your faith only on earthly things that the devil can steal, let your faith be used in serving God’s kingdom that rewards with eternal treasure. —Pst.

The Hope of the Believer

🔊Download the Audio☞ bit.ly/aud1928 1 Corinthians 15:19 (KJV) If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. When Charles became a believer in the Lord Jesus, he was already making a lot of money from being a fraudster. He was already driving a brand new Mercedes Benz and had started building his first house while still a teenager in his second year on campus. But he accepted the Lord Jesus and knew he had to forsake that life of fraud. He left the life of fraud because of hope in Christ. He understood that there was nothing of this world that was too big to give up for inheriting the kingdom of God. He knew he could not continue in his life of sin and inherit the kingdom of God (1 Cor 6:9-10). Because of sound teaching, he knew that all the wealth in this world put together was not sufficient to pay for the eternal glory of God’s eternal kingdom that he was called to inherit. But he also knew that this hope that made him forsake his ungodly wealth was not in this life of flesh and blood but in the life that is to come. For Charles, if his hope in Christ was only in this life, he would have been most miserable because he forsook a life of affluence and embraced the kingdom life of selflessness and sacrifice. Believers in Christ are those who set their affection on things above and not on things of this world (see Col 3:2). This doesn’t mean believers would not be relevant in this world. As a matter of fact, the more we focus on God’s kingdom and set our affection on things above, the more relevant and impactful we would be in this world because that is when our light would shine. Go into today remembering that as a believer in Christ, most of our hope is towards the eternal glory that would shine brighter even when all the glories of this world has failed and expired. —Pst.

Some Fruits of False Teachings

🔊Download Audio Here ☞ bit.ly/aud1927 1 Timothy 6:3-4 (NET) If someone spreads false teachings and does not agree with sound words (that is, those of our Lord Jesus Christ) and with the teaching that accords with godliness, he is conceited and understands nothing, but has an unhealthy interest in controversies and verbal disputes. This gives rise to envy, dissension, slanders, evil suspicions Before Charles met some sound believers on campus and became a believer in the Lord Jesus, he did not like charismatic Christians at all. He was not interested in being a believer because of his elder sister. Before she started attending a certain charismatic church, she used to be “nice” and “normal”. But as soon as she started attending that church, she became very suspicious. She would pray in tongues with fear, sprinkle anointing oil on even cockroaches and say “no one knows how they (my enemies) can come”. She wouldn’t travel anymore to the village because of fear, and she became very stingy because she said she didn’t want anyone to use her gifts and money as an evil point of contact against her. Even though she became a believer, these manifestations of fear and suspicion in her life were a product of false teachings. Some fruits to show that a believer has been feeding on false doctrines is that he becomes more fearful and suspicious. Sound doctrine should build faith, courage, and strength in your heart. It shouldn’t make you more fearful or suspicious. Even though we are to be sober and vigilant (by being prayerful), believers are never to be more fearful than unbelievers. Unbelievers should look up to us when they are afraid because we are the ones serving the living God. Go into today remembering that God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind (see 2 Tim 1:7). Prayer: Heavenly Father, please deliver me from every spirit of fear. Please fill me with your Spirit of power, love, and self-control. Amen. —Pst. Abraham Damilola Arigi Streamglobe is nondenominational.

How to Identify False Teachers

🔊Download Audio Here ☞ bit.ly/aud1926 1 Timothy 6:3-4 (KJV) If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmising I have heard of certain teachers who teach doctrines that contradict the teachings of Christ. They say things like ‘the things Jesus taught were meant for Jews and not for Christians’ or ‘Jesus’ teachings were before the New Testament and are not valid for New Testament believers’. They forget that every testament (will) is given before and not after the death of the testator. The death of the testator simply ratifies and brings it into effect. Such teachers are the ones Apostle Paul is referring to in today’s Bible verses. They claim to know much but actually know nothing. How can someone who has an understanding of God’s Word say that the things Jesus taught were not meant for those who believe in Him? Yes, there were things the Lord could not teach His disciples because they could not receive them without the help of the Holy Spirit (until the Holy Spirit came and baptized the Gentiles in the very eyes of first Apostles, they could not believe that Gentiles could receive God’s salvation), but the things He taught and commanded them were meant for believers, and He instructed them to teach these things to other [new] believers everywhere (see Matt 28:20). Go into today remembering that one way to identify those who spread false teachings is that they claim that certain things Jesus taught are not meant for the believer. They also claim that certain other portions of the New Testament are not meant for the believer. Prayer: Lord, please immunize me from the deception of those who spread false teachings. Amen. —Pst.

Let Us Have Grace 2

🔊Download Audio Here ☞ bit.ly/aud1925 Ephesians 2:8-10 (KJV)  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. George grew up in a Christian home. He didn’t remember exactly when he accepted the Lord Jesus because he had known the Lord from when he was a child. Because he had lived a morally upright and disciplined life all his life, he started taking the grace of God for granted and giving his upbringing all the credit. Because of this, he became a very religious person with no spiritual power. He was afraid of witches and demons and was even now being tormented by them in his dreams. But after remembering and acknowledging the grace of God as the reason he was a believer and an upright person, it was as if a door was opened for him to know the Lord and grow in grace and spiritual power. One of the signs that a person has laid hold on the grace of God is that he would not be able to boast about his good works, he would rather give all the glory to God because he acknowledges that they are a product of God’s ordination long ago. Such a person would not be judgmental and would be quick to forgive because he realizes that if it were not for grace, he would have been as bad as anybody. That’s why those who cannot forgive cannot continue to grow in grace. Go into today remembering that it is expedient that we walk in grace and not in our own works because the only way we can serve God acceptably is through the empowerment of grace (Heb 12:28). Those who acknowledge the grace of God as their source of strength would continue to advance in it. Prayer: Father, thank you for your grace that saves me and empowers me to do your good works. Please help me grow in this grace and in the knowledge of you (2 Pet 3:18). Amen. —Pst. Abraham Damilola Arigi Streamglobe is nondenominational.

Let Us Have Grace

🔊Download Audio Here ☞ bit.ly/aud1924 Hebrews 12:28 (KJV) Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear After Terso believed in the Lord Jesus, he met some brethren on campus who has much grace to pray and fast. Because he was close to them, he also received this grace to pray and wait on the Lord. Because of this, there was great power in their midst, such that through them great miracles were performed. But as Terso left the country to another country for studies, he found that the grace he enjoyed while on campus seemed to be waning. He could no longer pray the way he could and his spiritual adventure appeared to now be an uphill battle. He had routines and disciplines he trusted to keep him in grace, but that was where his problem was. He trusted in systems rather than in Christ for grace. You are saved by grace through faith, not of yourself and not of works lest you should boast, but it is the gift of God (see Ephesians 2:8-9). Whenever you see a man under grace working hard, it is because grace is powering him, and he would not be able to take credit for it but would attribute it to the grace of God (see 1 Cor 15:10). When you see a man begin to take credit for the work of grace, he is beginning to fall from grace and walk in disgrace. This was exactly what happened with the people of Israel. By the time the gospel was revealed, they had forgotten that their election as God’s people was simply because of God’s grace and not the works that followed. They could not receive grace because they were already full of trust in their own works and routines. Go into today remembering that grace produces good works but trusting in good works do not produce grace, only trusting in Christ alone imparts grace(see John 1:16). Grace is received and multiplied by trusting in Christ and abiding (knowing and growing in) in Him (see John 15:4, 2 Pet 1:2,). —Pst. Abraham Damilola Arigi Streamglobe is nondenominational.

The Resurrection Doctrine

🔊Download Audio Here ☞ bit.ly/aud1923 1 Corinthians 15:12-13 (KJV) Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen It surprises me that there are some people who say that they believe that there will be a resurrection of the dead, but they don’t believe that Christ was raised from the dead nor was He the Son of God. I find it hard to believe that such people truly believe in the resurrection. The reason believers in Christ Jesus believe in the resurrection is because we also believe that our Lord and Savior resurrected bodily, and because he resurrected, we as members of His body are assured that we too will resurrect. The same scriptures that foretold His death, burial and resurrection also says we too would resurrect (see Isaiah 53:3-6, Psalm 16:10, Psalm 22:7-8, 18, 16, 31, Job 19:25-26, etc). Since Christ truly died and resurrected (according to what the scriptures foretold), we too would resurrect like Christ (according to what the scriptures foretell). For a person who does not believe that the Lord resurrected, there is no basis for him believing that he would resurrect. Go into today remembering that without the teaching and understanding about the resurrection, your gospel is not complete (see 1 Corinthians 15:1-22). It is because of an understanding of this truth that believers can live holy contented lives in this present world. It is because of the understanding of the glory that the resurrection would reveal in us that believers do not serve mammon like the rest of the world. The devil has been trying since the beginning of the church to obscure this truth from the believers because he knows the power this truth activates. Prayer: Pray for yourself and for the Christians in your nation, that the truth of the full gospel will bring divine transformation. —Pst. Abraham Damilola Arigi Streamglobe is nondenominational.

Faith or Risk 2

🔊Download Audio Here ☞ bit.ly/aud1922 1 John 5:14 (KJV)And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us. Jide grew up very poor so one of his greatest desires in life was to become very rich and powerful. He wanted to own the biggest house in his village and drive the most expensive cars. When he realized that through faith, people could receive things from the Lord, he decided to begin to apply faith towards his dream of riches. He took many risks. There were times he wouldn’t eat properly because he had given all his money in hopes that he would receive the kind of riches he wanted from the Lord. Jide didn’t receive the riches he expected from the Lord. He later found out that it wasn’t that God didn’t want to make him rich, but his motive for asking was wrong, it was pride of life. God does not reward bad motives. For your faith not to be you just taking risks, your faith has to be based on the word and will of God. If there is anything to learn about God’s predestination, it is that God doesn’t do anything He ever first planned to do. The power of God would not work to furnish your pride or massage your ego, it would work to fulfill God’s word and do His will. The onus is on you to ensure you are found within His will. When dealing with God, your motive is very important and the state of your heart. God would rather give you something simply because you ask and desire it than give it to you to furnish your pride and lust (see James 4:3). One of the most effective ways of asking and receiving from the Lord is to factor your request within the context of what you are sure is God’s will for you. Go into today remembering that God’s will is superior to your faith, and God would not do anything against His will. Ensure that your faith always falls within the ambit of God’s will so that it would be fruitful. —Pst. Abraham .D. Arigi Streamglobe is nondenominational.

Faith or Risk?

🔊Download Audio Here ☞ bit.ly/aud1921 Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. You may have heard people say that living by faith is risky. But is living by Faith really risky? Merriam Webster dictionary defines risk as the possibility that something bad or unpleasant (such as an injury or a loss) will happen. Hebrews 11:1, however, defines faith as the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. The end of every risk is uncertain and unpredictable, but faith is certain and predictable. A risk is always associated with doubt, hence fear, faith is without doubt and fear. Risk feeds on your ego while faith depends on God. God has not called us to a bleak and unpredictable end, the end is certain and predictable if we follow Him(see Jer 29:11). Doubt which is often associated with risk hinders us from receiving from God (see James 1:6-8) but faith pleases God (Heb 11:6). Faith in God is based on the word and will of God, but taking a risk is based on uncertainty and wishful thinking. When God says a word and you believe it and act according to what you believe, you are walking in faith. But when you begin to act presumptuously based on mere desires you have (with an end to furnish your ego), you are taking a risk. Go into today choosing faith in God over risk. —Pst.

Removing the Spec

🔊Download Audio Here ☞ bit.ly/aud1920 Matthew 7:5-6 (NET) You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.Do not give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls before pigs; otherwise they will trample them under their feet and turn around and tear you to pieces. After struggling with lust in his heart for several weeks, Martins knew that this was a spec in his eye that was hindering his spiritual vision and walk with the Lord. He prayed about this, but after seeing that he could not handle the situation alone, he called another Christian brother to whom he was accountable and discussed the matter. This was how the hold of the lust in his heart broke. There is something about opening up such matters to your Christian brother or sister, one of the first ways to heal a decaying wound is by opening it up. The Bible says we should confess our faults one to another, that we may be healed (see James 5:16). Have you ever tried to remove a spec from someone’s eye? This has to be with his consent or even request. It requires some painstaking and skilled blowing and blowing of air into the eyes until the spec is blown away. If you notice a spec in your own eye, sometimes, with patience, you alone with a mirror (signifying God’s word) would be able to carefully remove the spec, but sometimes, you may need to invite a friend to help you blow it out. If you have ever successfully removed a spec from your own eyes, it would be easier for you to help someone else not as experienced (say a child) remove the spec from his eye. In removing the spec from someone’s eye, it would require the cooperation of that person or that task would be futile. Such cooperation can only come from a Christian brother who cares about the Lord and desires to walk more accurately and perfectly. It is a very Holy and precious thing to remove specs from the eyes of brethren, but this ministry can never be fulfilled by hypocrites. Go into today remembering to examine yourself regularly to see if there is any spec growing in your eye that needs to be removed. Pray with Psalm 139:23-24. —Pst.
