Repentance Brings Forgiveness and Favor



When Zerubabel son of Shealtiel and Jesua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the whole remnant of God’s people began to obey the message from the Lord their God. When they heard the words of prophet Haggai, whom the Lord their God had sent, the people feared the Lord. Then Haggai, the Lord’s messenger gave the people this message from the Lord. “I am with you says the Lord!”

God delights in the repentance of a sinner. It doesn’t matter the kind of sin you have committed in the past, it could have been “Advanced Fee Fraud (419)”, stealing, murder, etc.). Once you realize you have sinned, you call upon the name of the Lord, He is willing to forgive, but if you refuse to repent of your sins, continuous stagnation is inherent.

Everything belongs to God



The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies” Haggai 1:8

Why do you claim to own the world, why are you comparing yourself to God because you have some material resources?

God says He is the owner of everything, praise be His name forever, amen!

Why Sin Repeals God



During the time of Prophet Haggai, God Almighty sent the prophet to the Israelites to warn them of their sins and the need for them to repent, the same way He is sending me to you today to warn you about your sins.

He told the prophet that the Israelites are sinning and because of their sins, He has caused them so much hardship.

The same way the Lord is telling us, Nigerians today that He is punishing us because of our sins, sins of adultery, fornication, and stealing, cheating, lying and fraudulent transactions.

Testimony: How my 10-year-old Son Was Almost killed At a Neighbor’s Child Birthday Party!



This happened on April 21, 2011, over a year ago now in Surulere, Lagos state.

A family friend’s son was celebrating his tenth year birthday. As usual my kids attend their birthday parties just like their kids attend my kid’s.

It was a Saturday and I was busy doing some house chores and so when Olaolu came to seek permission for them to attend the birthday party I was glad for them to go, at least that will enable me to finish the works before they came back.

After some hours I went with my husband to pick the boys from our family friend’s residence in an estate beside ours. As we approached the building, my older son Olaolu rushed and opened the car’s door, crying

“Mummy it’s Teni, its Teni oh”.

Who is God?



The Lord is a jealous God, filled with vengeance and wrath. He takes revenge on all who oppose Him and continues to rage against His enemies!” Nahum 1: 2
 
That is to say God does not accept idolatry in any form. He is jealous and will harm those who worship any other god(s) apart from Him.

Why is He angry? He is angry because He is the Creator of you and He demands that you worship Him and only Him and no other god(s).

“The Lord is slow to get angry, but His power is great and He never lets the guilty go unpunished. He displays His power in the whirlwind and the storm. The billowing clouds are the dust beneath His feet”

God Does Not Need your Offering, but Your Humility and Obedience



“What can we bring to the Lord? What kind of offerings should we give Him? Should we bow before God with offerings of yearling calves? Should we offer Him thousands of rams and ten thousand rivers of olive oil? Should we sacrifice our firstborn children to pay for our sins?” Micah 6:6-7

Some people are quick to think they can go to church on Sunday and bribe God with their offerings of money and gifts to take away their sins. They see God like a being who is happy when gifts are brought before Him. How funny, because God is the maker of all things so He can as well get whatever He needs if He needs them.


How God Can Turn your Misery into Hope



Like many of us, I have been miserable a lot of time. I have been miserable at countless number of times in my life. I have been sorrowful, sad, despair and thought life was meaningless. Just like the writer of Micah who said in Micah 7:1

“How miserable I am! I feel like the fruit picker after the harvest who can find nothing to eat. Not a cluster of grapes or a single early fig can be found to satisfy my hunger” Micah 7:1

What can be as bad as what Micah describes in this verse? It’s a total hopeless situation and yet he puts his trust in God that after all is said and done, God will come to his rescue and save him.

Prayer for Protection

O Lord, protect Your people with Your shepherd’s staff; lead your flock, your special possession. Though they live alone in a thicket on the heights of Mount Carmel, let them graze in the fertile pastures of Bashan and Gilead as they did long ago.

God’s response, “Yes”, says the Lord, “I will do mighty miracles for you, like those I did when I rescued you from slavery in Egypt” Micah 7: 15-16

So when you cry out to the Lord, He will answer you and do miraculous things in Jesus name, amen.

Prayer For Deliverance



“O Lord, oppose those who oppose me. Fight those who fight against me. Put on Your armor, and take up Your shield. Prepare for battle, and come to my aid. Lift up Your spear and javelin against those who pursue me.Let me hear you say, “I will give you victory!”

Bring shame and disgrace on those trying to kill me; turn them back and humiliate those who want to harm me.

Blow them away like chaff in the wind- a wind sent by the angel of the Lord. Make their path dark and slippery, with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.

Why you Need to Teach People about God



In the Book of Jonah, God sent Jonah to Nineveh to preach to the people about the dangers of not honoring Him and keeping His commandments.

Jonah instead of going to Nineveh ran away in the opposite direction to Tarshish.

While in the ship going to Tarshish, the ship encountered great turbulence due to harsh storm that took over the sea.

The sailors later discovered that Jonah was responsible for this turbulence and storm on the sea.
