THE CERTAINTY OF CHRIST’S COMING BY SAMUEL EXCELLENCE

30th March, 2019

IPR DAILY DEVOTION

Topic: THE CERTAINTY OF CHRIST’S COMING

THEME SCRIPTURE:
Revelation 22:20 (NKJV)
He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

MESSAGE:
We have discovered in previous devotions, that, the Lord Jesus is not slack concerning His promise; He is ready, and will surely come for His Church.

The initial part of today’s theme Scripture shows the certainty of Christ’s coming; He said, “Surely, I am coming quickly.” The King James Version of the Bible says, “Surely, I come quickly.” It doesn’t matter how long it has been, Jesus will surely come for His Church. Believers in years and centuries past were expectant of Christ’s coming, but didn’t live to see that day; but doesn’t mean they’re hopeless. They will rise first, at the coming of Christ. Nothing will be lost if, for instance, this generation doesn’t live to see Christ’s coming; all we need to do is to remain in Christ, because the dead in Christ will rise first.

We need to be certain of Christ’s coming, and build personal convictions with that certainty. Let no one talk you out of this conviction. Let no one dissuade you with human philosophy. Let no one rob you of your crown. In Revelation 3:11 (NKJV), our Lord Jesus said, “Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” Hold fast what you have! Hold onto God’s promise, and count Him faithful. Hold fast the confession of your faith without wavering, for He is faithful that promised (Hebrews 10:23). Very soon, whether dead or alive, the promise of Christ’s coming will be fulfilled. Hebrews 10:37 (KJV) says, “For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.”

Indeed, He that shall come will come, and will not tarry! Do you live your Christian life with this certainty?

Theme: Purpose

Topic: Anointed for a Purpose

Scripture Reading:
Acts 13:19-22; Genesis 1:26-28

Main Text:
Acts 13:22
22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.From yesterday's devotional, we know that Without  purpose, life  is meaningless  and  unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed  and  anointed, and that God definitely created you for a purpose. God  anoints  you for a purpose.  Purpose  is  the  reason for the anointing.  Without purpose the anointing is either  wasted or abused. It is needful to also note that God  anoints people for a  purpose.You are  anointed to serve God  and touch people’s lives.  A powerful anointing  produces supernatural  results in others. God  anointed King David,  a  man after His…

Main Text:Genesis 1:28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,  and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of  the sea, and over the fowl  of the air, and over every living thing that moveth  upon the earth.The Oxford dictionary  defines “purpose” as the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. Without purpose, life  is meaningless and unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed and anointed.  Purpose is not the prerogative of  a privileged few in the world – everybody should know his or her purpose in life.God created you for a purpose. He created  Adam and Eve and gave them the divine mandate to rule the universe and make the earth productive (Genesis 1:28). The  earth has great potential but it takes human beings to …

The Seven Spirits of God By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Theme: Purpose
Topic: The Seven Spirits of God
Scripture Reading:
Isaiah 11:1-2; Luke 4:1-19
Main Text:
Revelation 4:5
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
In  Isaiah  11:1-2, the  prophet Isaiah describes the seven-fold nature of the Spirit of the LORD who would rest on the Messiah. The Holy Ghost rests upon you with His perfect nature to subdue your human nature. His seven-fold nature overwrites your human inadequacies. His nature is superior to your human nature. He is what and who you are not. He does what you cannot do and gives what you cannot give.
In the book of  Revelation, John referred to the seven Spirits of God (Revelation 4:5). There is only one Holy Ghost so the term seven Spirits of God refers to the seven-fold character of the Holy Ghost. There is one Spirit with a seven-fold characterisation. Isaiah 11…
