LET THE WORD DWELL IN YOU PROPHET NANASEI OPOKU-SARKODIE

The Potters GuideProphet Nanasei Opoku SarkodieSUNDAY APRIL 21LET THE WORD DWELL IN YOULet the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.COLOSSIANS 3:16The sad thing about this generation’s charismatics is that we hide behind prayers and think that we are Christians. A powerful Christian is not the one that prays for hours; a powerful Christian is one whose heart is loaded with the word of God. For instance, if two sisters marry, and one marries a prayerful man and the other marries a man whose heart is loaded with the word; and it happens that both sisters offend their husbands, the man that prays a lot will be quick to slap his wife, but the other will not do it because of the word. And so your partner is behaving that way towards you because of the lack of God’s word in him or her.David said, “Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin agains…

ETERNITY BY BISHOP DAG HEWARD-MILLS

ETERNITY21st April 2019READ: Luke 16:19-31“And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal”Matthew 25:46There are only two destinations beyond the grave—HEAVEN and HELL. The spirits of those who were righteous in Christ go to be with the Father in Heaven, while the spirits of those who rejected Jesus will be cast down to Hell (Matthew 25:46).Hell is not a reform school. According to Mark 9:48, it is a place: “…where their worm dieth not, and the FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED.”Here, our judge Himself warns us about Hell and its unimaginable horrors, and offers us a wonderful and better alternative—Heaven.One reason why we can believe in the existence of Hell is that Jesus Himself preached more about Hell than many other subjects! For example, in Luke 16, Jesus recounts the story of the rich man and Lazarus in graphic detail. Notice that this is no parable. There existed a particular person, not a figment of His own imagination. These events actually occu…

18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,Jesus Christ was anointed to preach the Gospel to save the lost. The purpose of the anointing did not end there. He was anointed to heal the broken-hearted. He worked miracles like raising the dead to  save people from situations  that broke their hearts.  He also  spoke words of comfort to heal the broken-hearted.

GOD’S BENEVOLENCE TO THE GENTILES BY SAMUEL EXCELLENCE

21st April, 2019
IPR DAILY DEVOTION 
Topic: GOD’S BENEVOLENCE TO THE GENTILES 
THEME SCRIPTURE: Romans 11:11-12 (NKJV)[11] I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. [12] Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness!
MESSAGE:We saw in yesterday’s devotion, that, after 483years out of the 490years of God’s dealings with the nation Israel, the Messiah was cut off. The Israelites expected the Messiah to bring them political salvation and emancipation from the Romans; they didn’t know that cutting of Jesus was to include both Jew and Gentile in God’s salvation plan. A Gentile is a non-Jew; one who is not an Israelite. 
Bear in mind, that, when the whole world was engulfed in sin and rebellion, God asked Abraham to leave his country, his family relations, and his father’s house,  to a land that He would show him.…

HE’S YOUR RANSOM

Pastor Chris
And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18).

The underlined portion of the scripture above shows that it was God who took the responsibility of reconciling us to Himself. He was the one behind all that Jesus Christ accomplished for us. Actually, He was the one doing it. We see that in 2 Corinthians 5:19; it says, “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself….”

It isn’t just that God loved us so much and sent Jesus, but that He was actually doing everything that had to do with man’s salvation by Himself. He was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them. Hallelujah! He took the responsibility, and paid the full penalty for all your sins; He’s not mad at you at all.

Even if you got into trouble for something that you did wrong, He’s obligated to savi…

Daniel 9:24-26 (NKJV)

To finish the transgression,
To make an end of sins,
To make reconciliation for iniquity,
To bring in everlasting righteousness,
To seal up vision and prophecy,
And to anoint the Most Holy.
25 “Know therefore and understand,
That from the going forth of the command
To restore and build Jerusalem
Until Messiah the Prince,
There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;
The street shall be built again, and the wall,
Even in troublesome times.

Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.
The end of it shall be with a flood,
And till the end of the war desolations are determined.

DECLINE BY BISHOP DAG HEWARD-MILLS

DECLINE 20th April 2019
READ: Genesis 11:1-9; 12:1-9; 13:1-2 “…for without me ye can do nothing” - John 15:5b Jesus  said that  without  being spiritual, that is, close to God, you cannot succeed in this life: “…with-out me you can do nothing….”  It may seem like some people achieve a lot without Him, but I tell you that the end of those things is frustration, and emptiness. The story of the Tower of Babel is a good illustration of men coming together to achieve something for themselves. All their human efforts without God ended in confusion and scattering. Similarly, all the efforts we make without God will end in confusion and scattering. Many attempts to be happily married have ended in confusion and divorce. Many attempts to be rich have ended in confusion and division. Many attempts at higher education and higher achievement have resulted in confusion and despair. Only the Lord can do these things for us. A perfect example is found just a few verses after the unfortunate story of t…

Keep Your Body Under Control

Keep Your Body Under Control1 CORINTHIANS 9:27 ESV 27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.Our body is our earth vehicle. Without it, we can't operate on earth. If our body is not kept under control, and kept in good shape, it can become unfit for use, rendering us disqualified from continuing on in the race set before us (Hebrews 12:1).The Williams translation of the above verse says "may not myself become unfit to run."What could disqualify you from finishing your race here on earth in complete victory? Your body becoming unfit to function fully could certainly keep you from finishing your course.We have a responsibility to take care of what God has given us -- including our body. So there is no reason to mistreat our body, or treat it as evil. We just need to make sure that we control our body, instead of allowing our body to control us.We cannot expect God to keep our body under control; th…

HE PAID IT ALL BY PASTOR CHRIS

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES FRIDAY, 19TH APRIL.HE PAID IT ALLThe next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world (John 1:29)Perhaps you’re familiar with this beautiful song that encapsulates the vicarious sacrifice of Jesus Christ in our behalf: “He paid a debt He did not owe, I owed a debt I could not pay, I needed someone to wash my sins away. And now I sing a brand new song, amazing grace; Christ Jesus paid the debt that I could never pay….” Yes, indeed, He paid the full penalty for our sins!When Adam disobeyed God, the inevitable consequence was spiritual death (Genesis 2:17), which is total severance or separation from God. The Bible says, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” (Romans 5:12). However, God immediately introduced the sacrifice of bulls and goats as atonement for sin. This was the order with the children of Israe…

The Attack Plan Of The Enemy! By Prophet Kakra Baiden

KAKRA BAIDEN: AIR POWER DEVOTIONALThe Attack Plan Of The Enemy!Deuteronomy 25:18“How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary”Our enemy the devil has an attack plan. The Amalekites, the enemy attacked Israel; God’s children and we can learn from this attack.1. The enemy is aggressive and offensive.He likes to initiate the attack. That's why you must always be ready to fight the enemy on a spiritual, physical, mental and emotional level.2. The enemy likes to attack when you are not paying attention.The hindmost part represents an area of your life that you are not paying attention to. It could be your kid's spiritual life, marriage or health. Be vigilant; watch every area of your life; your health, finances and prayer life.3. The enemy attacks when you are vulnerable.When you are “feeble” or vulnerable, the enemy can take advantage of you.Example, someone can take advantage of you sexually when…

The Poor By Rev Eastwood Anaba

THE WORD SIROCCO Friday, April 19, 2019
Theme: Purpose
Topic: The Poor
Scripture Reading: Luke  18:9-14; Luke 4:1-19
Main Text: Luke 4:18 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
 The word “poor” in  Luke 4:18 is the Greek word ptōchos which means a  beggar, pauper or poor man.  Jesus Christ did not preach the Gospel to the rich who did not want to receive it.  He preached to the poor – those who lack the luxuries of this world but are hungry for the Kingdom of God.  Jesus Christ made a deliberate effort to reach the poor with the whole Gospel, not a partial  Gospel – He targeted the salvation of the soul, healing of the body and deliverance of the spirit (Matthew 11:4-6).
The poor who receive the Gospel refers to those who are poor in spirit or physically poor. The poor in spir…

KINGS BY BISHOP DAG HEWARD-MILLS

KINGS
19th April 2019
READ: 1 Timothy 2:1-3
“The king’s heart is in the hand of The LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whitheresoever he will” - Proverbs 21:1
If you do not pray for those who have authority over you, your life may become frustrated. The more you pray Timothy’s prayer, the more favourable the thoughts of your boss will be towards you.
Young people must pray for their fathers in order to have the favour of God. When I was in the university, I asked my father for a car. I realized that he was spending a lot of money on horse racing. You see, my father had one of the largest horse racing stables in the country. He employed many people and bought horses from all over West Africa.
My prayers for him made the Lord turn his heart in my favour and he bought a brand new car for me. I rejoiced and used that car for the glory of God. I was the first member of Lighthouse Chapel International to own a car. 
It became the church bus and the church taxi. I was happy to use it in th…

MAKE HIS DREAM YOUR DREAM BY PASTOR CHRIS

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES  THURSDAY, 18TH APRIL.
MAKE HIS DREAM YOUR DREAM
The Lord is…not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).
From the Scriptures, we clearly observe God’s greatest passion, which is to have all men receive eternal life and come into fellowship with Him. 
That’s the reason Jesus came to this world; He came to make men sons of God. Therefore, it’s important that your priorities are in sync with the purpose for which Jesus came. Keep promoting the cause of the Gospel; the cause for which Jesus lived, died, and resurrected.
Heaven recognises and celebrates those who have made soul winning a priority; those who have made God’s dream their dream. Nothing we do on earth has meaning or value in heaven except that which is connected to the cause of the Gospel; the salvation of lost souls. 
You’re responsible both for leading people to Christ, and also for ensuring they’re established in the Church as soul winners themselves.
There’re thos…

THURSDAY APRIL 18
BE A PART OF THE COVENANT FAMILY
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. JOHN 1:10-13
When Arsenal is playing against Chelsea and you wear either an Arsenal jersey or a Chelsea jersey, it does not make you a part of the selected eleven. In the same way, if you dress and come to sit in church, it does not make you a Christian.
If you are not part of the covenant, you are deceiving yourself. Do not stay outside the covenant and pretend to be a Christian because satan does not care about you coming to church; he is concerned about your relationship with Christ. 
What threatens him is not being a church member but being a member o…

BE DELIVERED
18th April 2019
READ: Mark 5:1-20
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” - John 8:32
After the Lord has set you free from the power of demons, you need practical adjustments, otherwise the demons will return: Matthew 12:45. Notice from this Scripture that the house was empty, swept and clean. A house, which is not filled with the Word of God, will be filled with demons.
I have watched many go for several deliverance sessions and yet never seem to be free. This is because we are ignoring a most basic truth the Lord gives us in John 8:32.
It is the knowledge of the truth that actually sets us free. Many pastors are attempting to use the laying on of hands to accomplish what only the truth can do. None of us is wiser than God. We may anoint with oil a thousand times but that cannot be substituted for the knowledge of truth.
Demons cannot have access to Christians unless we give them a foothold: “Neither give place to the devil” (Ephesians 4:27). Often the…

Sometimes you will appear successful but deep down, you are empty. You can be in church and not be in the will of God, and so do not deceive yourself.When you are in the centre of God’s will, favour is automatic. It is better to get sanctified people praying than to get a crowd of people who are not following Christ because the prayer of a sinner is an abomination to God (Prov. 28:9).

This is because he keeps the people of God in bondage and refuses to let them go. What will break satanic strongholds in your life?Follow the example of the Israelites and you will be free forever. Walking through the Red Sea is a powerful tool that God uses to eliminate your enemies - it stands for the dying process. Walking through the Red Sea is an action in which you rely on God’s grace; you do not depend on money, friends, family, or natural forms of assistance.The devil is not all-powerful. To escape from Pharaoh and his agents, you need to go where he cannot follow. When you sacrifice to the Lord, you go through the Red Sea, because you walk through a dying and a losing process.

A gospel is therefore a good message. The Gospel is the news of the coming of the Kingdom of God. The apostle Paul revealed the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the good news of the death of Jesus Christ on the cross and His resurrection to reconcile lost humankind to God (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).Jesus Christ knew the purpose of the Holy Ghost in His life.

DISMAY16th April 2019READ: Psalm 62:1-8“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God…I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” - Isaiah 41:10There is something I call “Christian surprises”. They are shocks you experience in the course of your Christian walk. Unfortunately, some people get so shocked by what they see and hear in church that it actually makes them fall away.We think we have come into a perfect world. When the so-called born-again saints disappoint us, we become so amazed. But the Bible says we should not be amazed (1 Peter 3:6).It is dangerous for a person to be in a state of shock. A good doctor who sees a patient in a state of shock knows that he is dealing with someone who can easily die. An experienced pastor who sees his members in a state of shock at what may have happened in the church also knows that he is looking at a member who can easily fall away.One of the things that may cause Christians to fall away is disappoint…

How To Win The Love Of Your Life! By Prophet Kakra Baiden

KAKRA BAIDEN: AIR POWER DEVOTIONALHow To Win The Love Of Your Life!Genesis 24:39-40“And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not follow me. And he said unto me, The Lord, before whom I walk, will send his angel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my father's house”Isaac was unmarried and wanted to marry his dream girl. Abraham his father sent his servant to his country to look for a wife for him.The servant had one little concern; what if this dream girl failed to respond to their marriage proposal? What if she said no? “Peradventure the woman will not follow me”.Abraham assured the servant all would be well, because they were relying on supernatural power.Sometimes, people try to win over the love of their life with gifts, money, outings, clothes, cars and even houses.But what if you are not financially strong, and your competitor is financially stronger, and driving the latest BMW (Be My Wife)?

MESSAGE:
Our theme Scripture is a reference  to the prediction of our Lord Jesus, as to what will happen in Israel, three-and-a-half years after the signing of the peace treaty. We have already established in previous devotions, that, the efforts of the antichrist will be to bring the whole world under one religion, and one government.

While the concept of one world religion and one world government will seem to work, giving a sense of “peace” to those who will be in the world in those days, the nation Israel will stick to the Temple worship and sacrifices that pertain to Judaism. They will not compromise their stands as far as their relationship with the Go…
