Unity is strength. It is a powerful force for achieving one's aims and objectives . If you are united in your family success will be for you, some goes to church where there is unity. The unity in the church must not be against the will of God.
You will only incur the wrath of God, if you unite against God or a Pastor.
The builder of the tower of Babel in Genesis 11:5 ff were united in building the tower on one hand they succeeded to some extend, because they spoke one language, but failed simply because their aims and objectives were against the will of God, hence He scattered them over the word.
The unity of a church lies in working together as a team. Members must be able to sacrifice their time for God, collectively for the glory of God. Unity in a Church exists when we are able to bear the infirmities of others, tolerate the opinion of others.
Unity existed between God the father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit. There was no record of disunity between the Godhead. Same goes to Jesus Christ and his disciples
May God grant us the spirit of love and unity. Amen.
ARE YOU DOWNCAST?
" For with God nothing will be impossible (Luke 1:37)
Whatever difficulty situation that you may be going through, Jesus is in control. He is same yesterday, today and for ever. He is the Alpha and Omega. What he has done in the past, he can do same today, therefore he controls the future. Our hope depend on Him can cause the dead thing in your body to function again. Jesus is the captain of Salvation. He commanded Lazarus to rise from the tomb and he did (John 11:43). He can cause the dead thing in your body to function again. Jesus rebuked the ranging storm and it was still. (Luke 8:24)
Are you downcast? Say it to the Lord, He will take control. Have you lost your job? Do you have unhealed illness? say it to the Lord. He will heal you. Remain connected to Jesus. Be hopeful. At least there is hope for a tree, if it is cut down, it can spring up again and new shoots will not fall (Job 14:7-9)
May God meet every good expectation of your life. Aime
HOW NOT TO LOOSE THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM
Your success in life largely depends on the degree of your obedience and willingness Isaiah 1: 19. If you leave out undone a part of God's commands, that obedience is not
complete.To question the commands of God is to doubt Him.In 1Samuel 15: 18 ff, King Saul was ordered to exterminate the Amalekites, but Saul spared the king and some animals contrary to the voice of God.Saul's obedience in this regard is not a total one. Saul, lost his earthly kingdom.Another area that we can loose our heavenly kingdom is when we refuse to do away with the things of the flesh, as in Colossians 3 : 8 ff .We are bound to receive the judgment of God and loose HIS kingdom if we spare anger malice, blasphemy,and filthy language out of our mouth.May God help us to get rid of these vices, in Jesus' name. Amen.
WHY WE NEED WISDOM
We need wisdom in all aspects of life,She is important in our daily activities,Pastors need Her in their ministries, husbands and wives in their homes, students,and leaders in their dispensation, « If any of you lack wisdom, let him or her ask God, who gives liberally, and without reproach, and it will be given to him » James 1 : 5 (NKJ version) King Solomon did ask for Her to govern Israel, It is not only rulers that can have access to Wisdom, but also those who are ready to ask,study the word of God and walk closer with the Spirit of God, Another aspect from where we can get Wisdom is by revelation ; that is to say what has been revealed in the Bible,For an example, if there is a legislation in a given community which forbids people to go out at a given hour,whoever violates the law not only endangers his or her life, but would have himself or herself to be blamed,To apply wisdom, She will reveal to you that every soul should be subjected to the gouverning authority,for there is no authority except fromGod,and authority that exists are appointed by God, Romans 13 : 1-2 (KJV), Wisdom helps to overcome a predicament and avert problems and challenges, Be wise,
SAY POSITIVE WORDS INTO YOUR DIFFICULT
SITUATION.what you say about yourself in a difficult situation affects your life now and in future.On one hand, what you say about your situation during challenges is of interest to God as well as satan.This is why you have to say positive words into your situation.God is hearing you.No matter what people say about your situationwhat matters is what God hears from you.during your challenges.Talk positively. Do not doubt. "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubtin his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have what he says." (KJV)Do not complain or grumble about your situation. God knows about it. He only wants you to speak positively into your situation.In Numbers 14:26-28 ,God gave to the Israelites what the latter spoke about during their difficult situation, that is to say death.What God hears during your challenges matters.Be careful.Say it is well , when it is not well until it is well.That was the case of the death of the Shumanite woman in 2 Kings:4:26 ff (KJV°Say it,I can, even when it seems impossile. God is hearing you.
Lukewarmness as revealed in Revelation 3:15concerning the church of Laodicea is a problem, « I know yuor works, that you are neither cold nor hot, I could wish you were cold or hot »(KJV) God wants you to be hot or cold,but not lukewarm Lukewarm water can not quench your thirst, God does not want lukewarm people in his kingdom, If you are lukewarm in your attitude to God and the thing of His Kingdom, In the Kingdom of God there is no middle place,it is either you are in or out, There is no neutrality,There is element of laziness in every lukewarm person, Lukewarm believers do not care about the time they come to church, they are less concerned about winning souls for God etc, If you have been lukewarm in the work of God change now and spend eternity with God, God bless,

The premier duty of a friend is to stay by him during challenges, Jesus, during His time took along with Him his friends to the garden of Gethsemane, and said, « stay here and watch with me »KJV They were asleep,As a believer, our duty as a friend of Jesus is to stay with Him,He is our friend, He will never betray you,He will never foresake you or abandon you,Remember that you are a friend of Jesus Christ when you love Him, and keep His commandments,as in John 14:15, « If you love me keep my commandments, » To be a friend of Jesus Christ,is to be 100 % committed to Him and His works, Paul, for instance was totally committed to the works of God,He sacrificed his life for the work of God,Paul was beaten,imprisoned,suffered ship-wretch etc,Paul expressed his determination to work for God as said in 2 Corinthians 12 : 15 « I will gladly spend and be spent for your souls,though the more abundantly i love you, the less iam loved « To be a friend of Jesus Christ,you must help others especially the less priviledged ones,Most believers help those who will reward them, To be a friend of Jesus Christ, you must help your fellow brothers and sisters, When you are helping others , you are doing this to Christ Jesus as revealed in Mathew 25 : 40, To be His friend, love Him, obey His commandments, stay with Him always, and hear Him, God bless you,
