RHEMA WORD


The Rhema Word of God can unlock us from every frustrations and limitations we face in Life. Circumstance do not dictate to us what God will do in and through our lives rather through the Word of God we can begin to dictate to circumstances!

I’m rich and thoroughly furnished unto all good works. I’m a helper, a lifter and a giver. Praise God.I’m rich and thoroughly furnished unto all good works. I’m a helper, a lifter and a giver. Praise God.We are the love-children of the love-God. As He walks in love, so are we called to walk in love. As He has loved us, so are we meant to love Him and love people. When the Holy Spirit reveals God to you and you get to know Him, His love will dominate you. This is because the more you love Him, the more like Him you become. You’ll begin to talk like Him because you’ll start thinking like Him. As you meditate on His Word, you’ll start reproducing it in your life.

Be Missions Conscious

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then the end will come.”

-Matthew 24:14

Hey Church you are too Comfortable.

Mission Field or Missionary?1 Corinthians 2:1,2
And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.

During my first two years in college I was a mission field, and during the last two years I was a missionary. Let me explain.Although I was a Christian during high school and early college, I believed Christ died only to save me from eternal condemnation, nothing more. As great a man as Jesus was, I had learned to treat Him simply as a spare tire. When a crisis arose, I’d pull Him out and ask for His help. Then, when it passed, He was once again relegated to the trunk.

In college I achieved almost every goal I’d set: honors and acceptance in the “in crowd,” tangible achievements for all to see. Yet spiritually I felt on the bottom. My life was empty. Living had no purpose.

At the age of 20 I began to grapple with the truth about life. Then I met a Person who transformed my life from gray, dull, drab purposelessness into the Technicolor thrill of knowing, experiencing and following God.

Please note: I met a Person. I didn’t learn a set of ancient precepts or a rigid collection of dogma. It wasn’t law. It was love…the personified love of God manifested in the Person of Jesus Christ. That love softened a calloused, proud heart and caused it to repent. No longer did Christianity mean stale, boring rituals; instead, it was a refreshing relationship with Christ, and a knowledge of His appointed purpose for my life.

Since then I’ve sought daily to give my life to Jesus Christ and be used as He thinks best. That, my friend, is the greatest thrill imaginable.

John Wesley wrote: “Give me one hundred men who fear nothing but God, who hate nothing but sin, and who know nothing but Jesus Christ and Him crucified, and I will shake the world.”

The world needs to be shaken. Christ the man, Christ the Savior, is Christ the revolutionary. Are you part of His revolution or are you in need of being revolutionized? Are you a mission field or a missionary?

Prayer: That the Person of Christ will take away all hesitancy and resistance to totally commit your life to Him.

Discuss: Are you experiencing, avoiding or ignoring the love of God manifested through Christ Jesus? How does your life presently reflect your priorities?

Nate Saint, a missionary pilot who was killed by the Auca Indians to whom he was ministering in Ecuador wrote:

“The way I see it, we ought to be willing to die. In the military, we were taught that to obtain our objectives we had to be willing to be expendable. Missionaries must face that same expendability.”

= C T Studd, the famous cricketer turned pioneer missionary to China, India and the Congo, declared:

“If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him.”

= Another missionary put it this way:

“Our God bids us first build a cemetery before we build a church or dwelling house, showing us that the resurrection of Africa must be effected by our own destruction.”

= Johan Krapf, missionary to East Africa, lost his wife and two children within months of arriving in Africa. He wrote:

“Though many missionaries may fall in the fight, yet the survivors will pass over the slain into the trenches and take this great African fortress for the Lord.”

= Sadhu Sundar Singh, missionary to Tibet, declared:

“I must obey my Master and preach His Gospel, regardless of the threats or suffering.”

= Henry Martyn, missionary to India and Persia, wrote:

“To all appearance the present year will be more perilous than any I have seen, but if I live to complete the Persian New Testament, my life after that will be of less importance.”

= Elizabeth Freeman, missionary to India, declared:

“I hope you will be a missionary wherever your lot is cast . . . it makes but little difference after all where we spend these few fleeting years, if they are only spent for the glory of God. Be assured there is nothing else worth living for.”

= Count Nicholas von Zinzendorf, the founder of the Moravian missionary movement, declared:

“I have one passion – it is He, it is He alone. The world is the field, and the field is the world and henceforth that country shall be my home where I can be most used in winning souls for Christ.”

These are the inspiring words of Christians whom God used in wonderful ways. Their positive impact upon their world was incalculable. They literally affected the course of history. Not because of what they said, but because they put feet to their faith. As William Shakespeare said: “action is eloquence.” Our actions are, in fact, the best interpreters of our thoughts and priorities.

Most church goers today are secular in their mindset and lifestyle. They have few convictions, more questions than answers. They are reluctant to make long-term commitments. Our society is existential (concerned primarily about my own personal experience, now!) This throw-away, disposable culture is short-sighted, cynical and short of faith and vision for the future. Our present generation has become selfish, sloppy, soft, spoiled and self-indulgent, unaccustomed to personal sacrifice, unwilling to endure hardship, and unlikely to exhibit loyalty to any mission, devotion to duty or courage in the face of danger.

Bill Bathman – a missionary who has devoted over 50 years to missions, mainly serving the persecuted churches in Eastern Europe – put it this way: “It’s not that Christians in the West aren’t willing to suffer persecution for Christ – they just don’t want to be inconvenienced!”

“The Gospel is free but not cheap.”-Pastor Chris”If all we ever see is our own world, then we are denying ourselves an incredible opportunity to enrich our life by involving and interacting with other people’s worlds”.-  Charllote Gambill-Scanlon

THE NEED:
“The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.” Matthew 9:37

THE COMMAND:
“Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15

THE LOVE OF CHRIST:
“The love of Christ constrains us, because . . . One died for all . . .” 2 Corinthians 5:14

THE WILL OF GOD:
“The Lord is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” 2 Peter 3:9

THE GREAT COMMISSION:
“All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded ” Matthew 28:18-20

    “I believe the Holy Spirit is behind your ministry because it is a purpose driven ministry.I believe God is taken your ministry to a higher dimension just a matter of time.”

    Ndubuisi,you are doing good. Keep up the good work. The power of community initiatives will bring the church where she ought to be. Intelligent engagement in solving societal problems is the reason why the church exists. All the problems we see in Nigeria today is as a result of the lazy and religious attitude of the church. Nigeria doesn’t have a leadership problem but system problem because it is the same system that produces all the leaders we have and know. The church has got the responsibility of instilling a new set of value system that is Kingdom based, which are just the key to bring Nigeria into her prophetic destiny. We need a conutry where hardwork is celebrated, where integrity and credibility are the basis for political acceptance a whole lot. Thank you.
