Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
Young people are the future leaders to move the church forward. They face a lot of challenges out there,within their families and even in church.
Today may we pray that:
• That they follow and live by His word
• What ever challenges they face they should trust in God that He will always guide them.
• We all seek guidance from God,by following his word.
Adults: young people look up to you, they learn from you so if you are guided by the word means those who look up to you too will be guided by the word.
Jeremiah 1vs 4-8

*Fighting to win*
Everyone has a battle they have to fight and conquer now and then. It’s either you are fighting a battle right now or you are about to get into one! So be ready!!!
God says YOU are his fighting weapon that he brings down strongholds and Kingdom with.
- Today pray and thank God being rest assured that wherever,whenever or who ever fights against you is fighting God himself
- Thank the Lord for every old or any soon to come battles being rest assured that His name is Ebenezer and he took you this far, because He is able to go further with you (1st Samuel 7:12).
-Though it may look like you are loosing right now, know that victory is yours because No one can fight against God (nor his children) and win (ISaiah 41:10-15) - declare verse 15 now in your life and God will affirm you in all your battles.
- If ever the enemy laughs at you or when you are the talk of the community. Pray Micah 7:8 and remind the devil you will rise again.
- Read and Pray on Romans 8:37 and sit back and relax knowing God has done it all for you.
Finally let Zechariah 10:5 be your final blow to the enemy. Put the enemy into shame and trample him under your feet because you are fighting a battle thats already won.
Remember it’s not that you can but it’s because God can and has already done it for you. So just align your mindset with his promises and pray like a winner. Amen ??
Thursday 28 May
*Exhibiting Christ love*
1st John 4:19.
= we love him because he first modelled love to us in the first instance
= The Bible says let brotherly love continue. Hebrews 13:1
- We pray that we will demonstrate the love of God not by words alone but by every form of action (1st Jonh 3:18).
Your Challenge; As you have prayed- choose 1 act of love you feel comfortable to do (before end of the week) for someone who is not a church member, friend, colleague or relative.
- Let us Pray that God will help us to see to it that the love we have for one another will not be that of the loose surface face value type but that our love roots will go deeper than claim to be. Love is the only obligation we have to each other and Only God can make us mature to such agape love (Rom 13:8).
Remember, the only way the world would know who you father is, won’t be by your DNA neither will it be by your surname. But the identity we must pride ourselves on is Truly loving one another and examplifying such acts of love, that the world will see that belong to one family ((John 13:35)
Apart from modelling Christ love, then our discipleship is questionable. Thefore!
- Pray that your discipleship will be witness by love in its true sense as per the greatest commandment (Jonh 16:12)
- Did you know, your fruitfulness is also tide up to your loving God and loving others too. Pray using John 15:16 and 17.
One love, one people, one family, one God
Pray that Christ love will rule over Leeds BICC members and their families.
Wednesday 27 May
*A great relationship with God*
The Bible says in Joshua 1:8. This book of the law should not depart from your mouth but meditate on it day and night.
The Lord’s Prayer says ‘Give us this day our Daily bread’. This means we are to meditate on God’s word daily (Math 6:11)
- Today, May you commit yourself to not let a day pass by without you meditating on one or more verses in the scriptures. And, I know you can!
- Ask God that just as your daily hunger for the physical food, so shall you hunger for the spiritual bread of life too (Jonh 6:35)
- Let us pray that we remain in Him as He remains in us. Thanking Him for the gift of his Word, the joy He gives us and the grace of fruitfulness in all we do (John 15:4-10)
- Finally; Pray for the Spirit discernment that as you meditate upon the word. Ask God to reveal himself to you, give you spiritual orientation and speak to you in a language that you will able to understand (1st John 2:27)
Remember, if you don’t eat your physical body cells begin to die, so it is with our relationship with God. Our spiritual cells begin to die when we don’t feed them of the word.
Tuesday 26 May
Romans 10 : 9, Ephesians 1:13-14, Revelations 3:20
The first backbone of humanity that God created was the foundation of family. So it’s not so surprising that the first and most thing- the enemy attacks, is family.
- Today, families are under attack, so let us Pray for firstly the Salvation of our families
- Pray for that sister or brother or any of you relatives who aren’t saved yet, for God to knock at their door.
- Some of our marriages and relationships need Jesus’s salvation; so Pray and ask God’s mercy and restoration for that struggling marriage(yours/your relative) or that struggling parental and children’s relationship.
- Finally, let us pray that our family members will depend on God's word and embrace the salvation which our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ brought to us.
As you lift up a prayer, Don’t forget our church family, For God has placed you in this family for a purpose: pray that your salvation will be blessing to me and I to you.
Remember! You are the Priest of your family. So allow God’s redemptive plan to be accomplished through you. Amen ??.
Monday 25 May
*Family protection :*
The Bible says no weapon formed against us shall prosper. Isaiah 54:17
1) we are all facing some type of a weapon that is fighting against us: it could be a spiritual, physical or financially weapons.
- Pray that whatever weapon the enemy has raised against you, God will raise a greater shield to cover you.
-Let's pray that God will continue protecting our family members even during this challenging season.
- Pray that you will be the solid rock of the church (not the building) the world can see; and because God is building his Rock solid church in you; No gates of hell shall prevail against you (Math 16:18).
Sartuday 23 May
(James 1:12) (Revelation 3:20) (James 1:4)
Salvation is promised when we show Christ like endurance. We are blessed when we endure and when we stand the test, we will receive the crown of life.
God promises to protect us by keeping us from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.
Endurance breeds spiritual maturity, we become complete therefore not lacking anything. We become who God created us to be by enduring trials and tribulations before us.
*Prayer point:* As the week comes to an end let us pray for individual salvation, Spiritual growth and God’s protection from the pandemic
Above all let us pray for the ability to endure all the trials and tribulations associated with the Covid 19 pandemic.
Thank you for allowing me into your prayer closets this week, may the good Lord protect you and keep you safe.
Friday 22 May
Enduring originates from God (2 Corinthians 1:8-9) (Colossians 1:10-11)
God is the One who gives endurance and encouragement so that we are enabled to glorify Him. When we endure trials and tribulations, we should rely on God the Father rather than relying on ourselves. He is also with us every step of the way for He promised He will never leave nor forsake us.
With God on our side we continue to live lives that are worthy of the Lord and pleasing in every way as well as bearing fruit in every good work.
Since we strive to be Christ-like may the Lord God direct our hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.
*Prayer point:* Let us pray for great endurance and patience and joyfully give thanks to God.
Also seek to have Christ-like endurance
Thursday 21 May
(Mark 13:13) (Hebrews 10:36)
God is trustworthy, and so is His Word. He is faithful. .
If we endure trials and tribulations on earth, we will reign with Him. By enduring, we renounce worldly things we feel are worthy and we have exalted above Christ.
God is faithful to keep His promises and His Word. We endure with Him in faith, counting on Him worthy of living with and reigning with Him.
God is faithful to keep His promises that if we endure, we will live and reign with Him.
Let us not forget that Endurance is a Christian virtue
*Prayer point:* Let us give thanks to the Lord whose promises are yes and amen thus boldly standing on the promise that we will live and reign with Him eternally.
Wednesday 20 May
Endurance in spiritual warfare* (Ephesians 6:10-18) (1 Peter 5:8)
The devil is like a roaring lion looking for whom he may devour. He will not stop pursuing us and we are not to give up on fighting him. There are occasions where it seems he is winning but as children of God, we must remember that we are fighting from the winning side. The enemy will throw infirmity, poverty, lack, discouragement, hatred and all evil on us. We must put on the full armour of God as we are at war. God is with us in this battle and He has given us all we need for this battle that we all experience. At the end we will remain standing- only if we endure and not give up.
We are to endure hardness as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. just like a good soldier we must have discernment and be aware and be not ignorant of the devil’s devices. Know who and what you are
fighting, put on the correct armour and fight till the end. Spiritual victory is yours when you endure till the end.
*Prayer point:* Let us pray for the full armour of Christ to enable us to fight against the devil’s schemes.

Tuesday 19 May
*Endurance of faith* (James 1:2-4) (John 16:33) (Romans 8:37-39)
Our faith is at its highest when all is well and good; but life is not always good. Even Jesus warned us that in this world we will face trials and tribulations, but we are to be of good cheer,
for He has overcome the world. When faced with difficulties; most of us lose our faith in God, we become discouraged and even think that God has left us and has stopped loving us.
This is the time to build on our faith and remind those around us that Jesus will never leave nor forsake them. The Bible says “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” We will pull through and come out victorious at the end of this pandemic because we are loved, and nothing will separate us from his love. Just endure in your faith.
*#Prayer point:* As children of God we are encouraged to pray for each other to endure all trials and tribulations with faith regardless of what is going on around us.
Monday 18 May 2020
*Theme for the week:* Endurance during the Pandemic
Endurance as a Christian virtue (Galatians 6:9- 10) (Hebrews 10:36)
As children of God we are called to endure in the face of trials and tribulations and those who endure are promised a reward. In all we do for the Lord we are to carry on until we have accomplished our goals or what the Lord has purposed us to do.
What is endurance?
It is the ability to withstand hardships or adversity especially the ability to sustain a prolonged stressful effort or activity.
Not only do we need endurance in hardships rather in doing good as well. During this pandemic, every one of us has been affected one way or the other i.e. health, finances, relationships and even our coming together as Christians to worship and fellowship.
Let us continue to look after one another in this difficult time
*#Prayer Point:* Let us pray for endurance not to grow weary.
Hallelujah praise God.
Thank You Father for the Precious Blood of Jesus.
The Blood of Jesus that was shed once for all as the Blood of bulls and goats could not take away sins. Because Jesus was sinless, only He could provide atonement for us by becoming a curse for us on the Cross. He went to the Cross willingly. God's great love for us.
We can now approach the Throne of Grace with confidence as the veil (flesh) has been split in the middle, from top to bottom.
The Precious Blood of Jesus set us FREE from the curse of sin and death.
We are declared Righteous because of the Blood. Through the Blood of Jesus, we have forgiveness of sins. We have Justification, sanctification, Cleansing, Peace, nearness to God
Eternal Life, we are overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony and we have Everlasting Life.
His Blood reconciled us back back to God.8
Gal 3:13, Rms 3: 25 - 26, Heb 12: 1 - 2, Matt 27: 51, Heb 10: 20, Heb 4: 15 - 16, Heb 9 : 26, Eph 1: 7, 1 Cor 15: 54, Rms 8:37, 1 Cor 15: 57, Mtt 26: 28,
Rms 5: 5 - 9, Heb 10: 14, Eph 2 : 13, Col 1: 20
Worthy are You Lord, our Lord, to receive glory and honour and dominion, for You created all things, by Your will they were brought into being and were created. Amen. Rev 4: 11
Hallelujah praise God.
In Exodus 12: 23 each household was instructed to kill a young lamb without blemish and smear the Blood on the top beam and both sides of the door frame.
When God 'Passed Over' the house and saw the Blood, the destroyer was not allowed to destroy them, they were protected by the Blood.
In Leviticus, the book of the "do's and don'ts" Aaron and his sons were chosen by God to perform the atonement rites. These sacrifices were done year after year.
Blood sacrifices was God's love for Israel. It did not take away Israel's sins but made it possible for them to have fellowship with A Mighty God. It was a foreshadow of Jesus the Sinless Lamb of God,Who became our Perfect Sacrifice. Hallelujah, glory to God.
John 1: 29, Rev 5: 6- 14, 1 pet 2:24, Heb 9: 22, Heb 10: 14.
We thank God for the power of the Blood of Jesus and what It has done for us. Made us joint heirs with Christ Jesus, seated us in heavenly places. And we stand righteous before God.
What a lot we've got to thank the Lord for.
Have a blessed and joyful day.
Hallelujah praise the Lord
Worthy are You Oh Lord our God.
God asked Abram to bring a three year old heifer, a three year old she goat, a three year old ram, a turtled dove and a young pigeon, which Abram cut in the middle and placed the halved pieces opposite each other, but the birds were not cut. The creatures had to have no blemish on them at all.
Abram falls into a deep sleep after he does what the Lord told him to do..God Himself passed between the halved animals sealing the Covenant which was irreversible as they were bound together in Blood.
Through this Blood oath, God said to Abram, He would multiply him exceedingly and make him a "Father of many nations" and also changed his name from Abram to Abraham -
This Covenant brings us so many blessings when we recognize and understand how powerful the Blood is.
We are part of the Many Nations that were promised to Abraham.
Jehovah God commanded Abraham to circumcised every male which was the outward sign of the Blood Covenant.
The Covenant was established with Isaac even before Isaac was born.
Abraham believed God and received his promise. So strong and powerfully binding is the Blood.
Gen 15: 9 - 10, 12: 5, Lev 1: 3,
Gen 28: 11, 15: 12 - 16, 2: 21,
Jer 34: 18 - 19, Gen 17: 5 - 9à, Gen 17: 9b - 14, 21: 4, John 7 - 22, Acts 7: 8, Rms 4: 11
Gen 17: 21, Gen 26: 2 - 5.
We thank God for the Blood, there is power in the Blood.
Have a very, very blessed day.
The Blood sacrifice Covenant
Hallelujah praise God.
As Noah went into the ark which God told him to build, he took with him two of each kind of clean male and female animals and birds . He was also instructed to take seven of each clean and unclean male and female animals, birds, and creeping creatures. The clean animals and birds would be used for burnt offerings unto God after the flood which God brought upon the earth to destroy every living thing because humanity had become so wicked, they had lost their true direction.
Noah walked with God was in constant fellowship with God. Noah believed in God, he had faith in God.
After the flood Noah built an altar to offer up a Blood sacrifice to God for saving him and his family. He showed his gratitude.
The Blood is precious , so precious that God told Noah not to eat flesh with Blood in it as life is in the Blood. Life is in the Blood.
Gen 6:9 Gen 6: 13 - 22
Gen 8: 20 Heb 11: 7 Heb 9: 10
We thank God that in all we do, let us have a right attitude, of thankfulness and gratitude and joy. May God be glorified in us today.
Have a very blessed day.
Tuesday 12 May 2020
Hallelujah praise God.
Cain and Abel offered sacrifices to God. Cain's was rejected but Abel's was accepted.
Cain's vegetable offering was the fruit of his own effort, a rebellious offering of not wanting to be under God's covenant. Just as Adam's attempt to use fig leaves to cover himself was rejected so was Cain's. Abel's sacrifice was received as it was a Blood sacrifice which was pleasing unto God. It was a sacrifice made out of humility because he acknowledged his guilt, whereas Cain was self righteous. When God accepted Abel's sacrifice, He also accepted Abel.
God Himself established the Blood sacrifice.
Abel by faith accepted God, but Cain rejected God's ways and became a fugitive.
Scriptures: Gen 4: 4, 5 ,
Lev 3: 16, Heb 11: 4, Heb 11: 6
Let us continue to pray for understanding of the Blood covenant.
Have a blessed day.
Monday 11 May 2020
Hallelujah praise God.
This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. And let us thank God for the Blood of Jesus.
The theme this week is the Blood Sacrifice.
In Genesis 3: 21 God made garments of skin for Adam and Eve. Innocent animals were sacrificed to cover their nakedness and atone for their sin, when they rebelled against God by listening to
the lie of the serpent in the Garden of Eden. Gen 3:21, 3: 27
Nothing else could cover them. Their own efforts of using leaves to cover themselves was a very poor substitute. The skin covering was a foreshadow of Christ's ultimate sacrifice. Gal 3: 27. We must be clothed with Christ.
Our own efforts avail nothing.
Innocent blood had to be shed.
This points to Jesus Christ, the perfect Lamb of God. John 1: 29 Hallelujah.
Let our prayer be for a deeper understanding of the Blood Sacrifice.
Have a blessed day all.
GOD HAS SPOKEN.
Bazalwane thank you for all the prayers said during this week. God has heard us and He has delivered His message to us through our Evangelist.
Thank you Mr Mlilo for
such powerful word yesterday and thank you very much for your encouragement .
We will listen to that small voice - the voice of God.
I wouldn't want to say much today. I just want us to absorb what we heard yesterday.
Bazalwane it is now up to us to put into practice the word that we have heard so far.
Also we are blessed that we still have access to the preaching of the word even in these harsh times.
Praise the Lord.
Let us continue to pray that even today and tomorrow God uses him in a mighty way and also that God continues to reveal Heavenly secrets to him.
Bazalwane this is the last day of our devotionals with me .
May the grace of God be with you all.
2 Thessalonians 3:16
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
8 May 2020 - FRIDAY.
DRAWING CLOSER TO GOD AS WE APROACH OUR REVIVAL.
WAITING IN PRAYER AND PRAISES. HALLELUJAH !
My dear brethren we thank God for feeding us with His word again this week and we thank Him for all the instructions that He has given us so far.
We thank God for all the prayers that have been said in every household.
If there is one prayer that you think God heard , it means that all the prayers which you said God has heard them. Then rejoice in the lord and be exceedingly glad .
We thank God for keeping us alive until the time of our REVIVAL .
We thank God that He was in control of everything that happened this week and that He directed our steps.
Brothers and sisters i don't want to bombard you with the word today.
I would like us this time to prepare ourselves for the Service which takes place this evening.
You know how you prepare yourself for God's Throne of Grace. Some people sing praises to draw themselves closer to God. Others pray.
From now until the start of the service please let us do everything we can that draws us closer to God so that the Devil does not divert our thoughts and our minds from our spiritual thinking.
Let's not forget that singing praises to God is the same as praying to God too.
I will post some of the songs that when i start singing them it's hard to stop.
Bazalwane let's not forget to ask God to elevate us to a higher level of faith .
As Christians we grow . We don't remain in the same grade or place if i may say. Asiyisebenzeleni iNkosi.( let's work for the Lord) Let's all be busy in His vineyard. The harvest is
plentiful but the labourers are few.
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
7 May 2020
THANKS GIVING DAY.
Good morning brethren. I greet you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
Bazalwane it brings great joy to know that we dedicated our time to our Father in Heaven and He has heard our requests.
Today we are not requesting we are giving thanks to our Father in Heaven because He has heard our prayers.
We have called on Him and He has heard us.
Psalm 116 v1
I love the Lord, for he heard my voice he heard my cry for mercy.
We thank God for His wonderful promises: He says , ask you will be given . Seek , you will find . Knock it shall be opened to you.
Today we have crossed the red sea and we are rejoicing singing hymns like the children of Israel when they came to dry land after crossing the Red Sea
Today we thank God that He is truly with us in every and in any storm. Hallelujah. And he fights our battles.
We thak God that He does not sleep or slumber. He keeps watching over us. Psalm 121
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand.
We thank the Lion of the tribe of Judah that He came here on earth and took the body of a human being so as to die for our sins. Hallelujah.
Bazalwane let us thank God for His unconditional love because while we were yet sinners Christ died for us .
From the filthy rags he has clothed us with His own righteousness . Hallelujah.
With His oil He has anointed us and our cup overflows.
Thank you father that even during this revival you will lay for us a table in the presence of our enemies. Hallelujah.
We thank God in Jesus name,that He has restored back the glory that the devil stole from us In the garden of Eden. Hallelujah.
Let us thank God that he knows us one by one and he satisfies our needs. Our names are written on the palm of His hand and they are continually before Him. Hallelujah.
Bazalwane tomorrow is our great day.
Are we ready ?
Have we filled our lamps with oil ?
Are we ready to be changed by this REVIVAL ?
If myself and yourself harden our hearts it is entirely our choice whether we do the Lord's will or we follow our deceitful heart's. Don't forget that God says the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked above all things, who can know it.
Can we say like Joshua that Me and my house we will serve the living God.
Bazalwane once again let us not fear the devil or anything that comes by him because trying as he may, the devil will never be able to form a weapon that will prosper against our unstoppable God. Hallelujah .
Lastly let us rejoice and be exceedingly glad for great is our reward in heaven if we truly receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour.
Jesus says; you are my friends if you do whatsoever i command you.
Will you be Jesus's friend?
From now on , are you going to do whatsoever He commands you ?
6 May 2020-WEDNESDAY
FAST AND PRAY- GOD IS LISTENING . PRAY WITHOUT CEASING ??????
Father we come to you in Jesus's Christ name , thanking you for everything that you continue to do for us . Thank you for the lives that you give us everyday. Amen.
Once again,good morning Church. May the Lord hear us as we cry to Him today.
Bazalwane let us pray that the Lord reveals himself to us.
Let us pray that the Lord shows us His ways. In Psalm 25 David says: show me your ways Oh Lord.
Let us pray that God shows us how unworthy we are and that we are nothing but unclean people who have been defiled by sin. Paul says : Oh wretched man that i am, who can deliver me from this body of sin ? Thanks be to God who deliveres me through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Anything that tells you and me that we are righteous is deceiving us. For God says: our righteousness is as filthy rags.
Let us today plead with God for His grace and for as long as we live. Like Jacob of old when he wrestled with the Angel: He said to the Angel, I will not let you go unless you bless me.
We cannot say that we are good when God says that we all have sinned and come short of His glory. Hallelujah.
Today bazalwane let us ask God to revive us and we shall be revived. In Psalm 85v6 David says; Will you not revive us again Oh Lord that we may rejoice in you.
Bretheren after this revival we should be found rejoicing in the Lord. Hallelujah.
Let us ask God to make us how He wants us before His eyes. He is able.
Bazalwane let us be kind to our God breathed souls by allowing the word of God to work in us ,we should not harden our hearts.
Also if we die in our sins it means that there is no eternal life for our souls. Luke in his Gospel says : I tell you unless you repent you will all perish.
Let us call on the Lord Jesus Christ today : Oh Jesus thou son of David have mercy on me. That is the cry of a poor sinner like you and me. The bible says everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Let us pray that by Sunday everyone will know their God given purpose . Everyone has a purpose.
Let us pray that the Spirit of God speaks to us during this REVIVAL - and Samuel answered; speak Oh lord for your servant heareth. Let us pray that we hear God speaking to us as Samuel did.
Let us continue to pray for the power of God to be manifested in our Evangelist and his crew
Let us pray that the lord prepares them for this revival. Let us pray for inward peace , peace that transcends all understanding .Let us pray that the Lord uses them mightily these 3 days and always.
Let us pray that the Lord shows us our God given purposes. There are many many God given purposes in the house of God. You can be a cleaner , leader, preacher, encourager, prayer warrior ( praying for other people and the church ) , setting up the house of God ( chairs ) , providing teas and coffees, your love , your attendance. We dont automatically get into these but it must be God given. Is my purpose , your purpose God given ?
Don't mind about the storm . You are not alone Jesus is with you all the time . Hallelujah !
Lastly let us pray for the salvation of our souls.
Master, we are perishing , save us.
TUESDAY 5 MAY 2020
FIGHT ON. NEVER GIVE UP.
Bazalwane we thank God that we are alive and that we are still able to glorify His name. Hallelujah ??
Let us march on soldiers. Let us march on prayers warriors. Dont leave your armour ( the word of God )behind as you have to destroy the strongholds of the devil as you go along in Jesus name. Fight the devil with the word as you march towards the throne of grace on Friday. We are winners in Christ our Lord bazalwane. We are conquerors in Jesus name. As we pray let us pray for our Evangelist Nkosi Mlilo that nothing evil stands on His way . The devil knows that many souls will be won to the truth during this time. He knows that we are winning the battle in Jesus name .Let us pray that the Lord speaks to us through our Evangelist. Bazalwane God has a great message for us . Let us be ready to receive it and practice it. After all the devil knows that he was defeated at the cross but bazalwane he doesn't stop trying let us pray that all the alters of Satan are destroyed, meaning all the demonic alters . Let us march on children of God let us not be afraid of a dead kingdom, the kingdom of the devil. Uyasethusela nje. Bazalwane am sure we can't wait for this big day when we will be encouraged to find our God given purposes in the storm or really in the storms because these storms don't just come they pour. Bazalwane this is not a bread and butter kingdom. We have to fight for it . Let us pray heavily for the young man . The devil is shaking already because we are a big army. Hand in hand let us march together peacefully and in Spirit towards our victory. The lord will receive us and he will have mercy on us if we humbly and wholeheartedly confess our sins to Him. He will abundantly pardon us and show us our purpose. Hallelujah.
Lastly God willing as we were told that tomorrow is Fasting and Praying day. Please read the word so that we are able to defeat the enemy with the word. Remember when Jesus was tempted by the devil. He fought him back with the word and the devil was defeated.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit , a broken and a contrite heart .These, O God, You will not despise.
Blessed are those that hear the word and practice it.
Monday 4 May 2020
CLEARING OUR CONSCIENCES AS WE APPROACH OUR REVIVAL.
Are our consciences clear ? Are we not having feelings of being guilty ? Bretheren it is only us who can deal with our consciences as did the Prodigal son when his conscience was quickened. He straightaway went back to His father for forgiveness.
Bretheren ,God has quickened the consciences of all those who believe in Christ. Ours is to listen and act. Are we not approaching the Throne Of Grace at our REVIVAL burdened with guilty consciences? Are we going to stand before God with guilty consciences ? For how long shall we have a feeling of guilt playing up at the back of our minds ? If you and myself have sleepless nights because of a guilty conscience let us act now. We are blessed to hear that small voice from our inner man which stands to encourage us to do what is right . Hallelujah.
2 Timothy 1v3
Paul says , I thank God whom I serve with a clear conscience as did my ancestors.
Brethren there is great need to serve the Lord with a clear conscience. And as we approach this very important time in our church calendar- OUR REVIVAL , for us to benefit from God's word that will be preached we should get rid of anything that hinders our concentration . It's hard to concentrate when we have unpleasant things playing up in our minds. Let us use our REVIVAL time wisely by humbling ourselves and doing the right thing which is God's Will.
John 8v9 says , And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last. Here are the men who listened to their consciences they left one by one when they realised that they were as bad as the woman who had committed adultery.
Also 1 Timothy 3v9 says , They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. Bretheren with a clear conscience we will always be truthful and honest in what we do and say.
One writer says , if your conscience troubles you, rejoice for God is speaking to you. Don't let your heart be heardened- keep your conscience clear and be blessed ?
