Pastor Chris started by singing :The church is marching on *2
The gates of hell shall not prevailThe church is marching on.
I enjoyed the year 2012
It was a glorious year.
The Spirit of God was with us from January to December.What's on the mind of God, where is this leading
The economy of the world are troubled today, lots of problems everywhere.
This is not surprising for those that knows the wordThe word forewarned of these events
Though the world may be covered with darkness, we are not of the world,We are the light of the world. God said to us that he has made us more than conquerors, God gave us his light, his light is his word and he gave us this light to walk through the darkness, and he said fear not, for I am with you.
No weapon formed against us shall prosper, the greater one lives in us. He has given us confidence in his word. Christ came that we might have life in abundance. We have thesame life with Christ.Few scriptures that will take us into the year 2013.
Romans 5:17 death reigned like a king over people by one mans offence.
They which receive (lambano) enormous grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign, To reign means to exercise authority, to be in charge, to reign over poverty and want. It's an amazing scripture
There's a word I'll like to introduce to you. Let's see ( Luke 1:30 )
Fear not KingSuccess(put your name) for thou hast found favour with God.
The word favour was translated from the word Chraris which is GRACE as was translated in in Romans 5:17. There's a difference between the word grace and favour. Grace is usually an impastation. Often time it's more spiritual, something that gives an inner quality, but favour are the details of the expressions of grace, which means the grace of God works already in you but favour is one of the outward manifestation of grace.
You find a lot of people, even though the grace of God has been granted to them, you find them living a lower life. Favour is the outer expression of grace.
Psalm 102:13 Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.
In the days of Daniel, there was a king who conquered Babylon, In his days when he became king, Daniel realised that the time that it was spoken of for them to be free, there was no sign to show it was time to favour Israel.
God functions with a lot of legality, yet with his grace. he has spiritual laws and this is one of the major reasons why you need to study the word.
Praying is a way of communicating with God and receiving communication. God doesn't just want us to pray, and I advise you t get the book on how to pry effectively. Jesus didn't come to establish religion, he's not a religious leader.
Psalm 102:13, THE SET TIME. 2013 is a special year. In this year 2013, you'll find the set time.
Genesis 39:20-21 but the lord was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper.
There's a legal righteousness and there's a vital righteousness.
2013 IS OUR YEAR OF FAVOUR
I'm thinking what does this mean to you? You'll see it in your life.
In few minutes well get into 2013
Don't always look out for favour, walk in the consciousness of favour. God has given you favour. You have favour everywhere you go.
This is the set time. HAPPY NEW YEAR. It's your year of Favour.
Thou hast found favour with God. Go ahead and pray.
Open your mouth and pray everywhere.
There're some few things we have to do, the first one is salvation. If you've not received salvation. If you're not living for Christ, you've been favoured in the grace of the salvation in Christ. Make Jesus the lord of your life anywhere you are, knee down before your tv set, your computer any medium with which you're receiving this information, make Jesus the lord of your life today.
No one on earth can relieve salvation except by the power of Jesus, and the way to receive salvation is very simple, you confess with your mouth the lordship of Jesus, and believe in your heart that Gid has raised him from the dead according to (romans10:9-10) you repeat this with your mouth, loud enough to your hearing, say o Lord Jesus, I come before you today, I receive you today as the saviour of my life, and I believe that you died for me, and you rose for my justification. I receive eternal life into my spirit today, I am a child of God, I am a new creature, in Jesus name. If you have just received Christ today, you're just like a new born baby that requires some vital ingredients for growth. You have to be taught the word of God, so please contact www.christembassy.org and write us an e-mail or call our telephone number for an effective follow up. God bless you and congratulations.
Thus says the lord
Fear not, I am the rock on which you stand
The world is mine, and I give it to you
Thus satin the lord
I've given you my word and I'm your strength
Have no fear, the darkness have no power over you
And the wicked shall not have dominion over you
I have exalted you with my hands of righteousness
Walk in the light of my word, you shall walk in victory
Don't consider your adversaries.
In this year of favour, I'll demonstrate my glory before you and men shall know that you are mine. I'm your shield. It's your year of favour, so satin the lord unto you. Hallelujah.
