The Unlimited God, by Minister Yomi Sanusi

This month we have been in adoration of and supplication to our God, who is unlimited in mercy, grace, favour, power, victory, care, and love. I wish to draw our attention to the confidence in the assertions of God himself from a few passages of scripture.

The first scripture shows us Moses who in approaching his near-impossible task was logical and reasonable in asking for a reference and an explanation. He knew he would have to reckon with every day and real-life situations that would confront him in the journey of his life- that was about to be consumed with the task, burden, mission and purpose of his life.

God’s response to Moses was precise, confident and monumental. God chose historical facts from His previous victories in the life of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The lives of each of those men had a before, and an after experience with the God that had no limits. Remembrance and understanding of the role of God might have cause not only the enslaved Hebrews to contemplate there would be a before and after following their encounter with a God that cannot be limited; but also Moses to recognize life would never be the same.

The Unlimited God, by Deaconess Tinkuma Ejovi

Many people have unconsciously placed a limit on God, who He is, and what He’s capable of doing. Notice what Psalm 90:2 says about His illimitable personality: from everlasting to everlasting, He’s God. That means both in the dateless past, and in the dateless future, He is God. Isn’t that amazing? No wonder the human mind can’t easily grasp things about Him. The Bible says in Isaiah 40:28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

What is your attitude to God and His Word?
1 Corinthians 2:14 says, “But the natural man receive not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” For example, there’re those who question the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus. Read More

Divine Stability, by Minister Yomi Sanusi

As Christians who are resolute in following the word of God, and worshipping God in spirit and in truth, we have to contend with a host of issues. Personal issues. Interpersonal ones. Issues and phenomena arising from the nature of our society. Relationship of society to the word of God. The verdict of society and individuals on the relevance of the authority of God.

We continue to explore this month’s theme of Divine Stability and pray to seek God’s face for ourselves and the church. Illustration of Divine Stability in the life of a Christian- Ephesians 4.1-16 Jesus laid his life down and died so you and I can be saved according to God’s provision, and in the course of our lives achieve spiritual maturity and stability. Ephesians 4 is an illustration of what we as spiritually mature and stable believers will end up looking like.

A spiritually stable church is full of the knowledge of God, and brethren who spontaneously display the fruits of the spirit in fellowship. Read More

Divine Companionship, by Deaconess Tinkuma Ejovi

While the God we serve is omnipresent, the extent to which we benefit from His presence is a function of our relationship with Him. It is a great privilege to walk closely with the creator of heaven and earth, the One that dried up the sea, the One that breaks down the walls and provides manna for 3 million people for forty years in the wilderness, the mighty God, the One that will never fail. Let’s look at this message from three perspectives:

1. The promise of divine companionship
Ex 33:14-15; Isaiah 41:10; 43:2; Jer. 15:20-21
God promises to be with us as we journey through the ups and downs of life. We have no reason to fear if God is with us. The promise of His companionship should encourage us to stay glued to Him. Moses recognised this and hence, he said in Ex 33:15 “If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence”. In other words, Moses didn’t want to take a step in any direction without the presence of God. It’s my prayer that we will also develop such a fervent desire for the presence of God in Jesus name. However, the promise of divine companionship is subject to a condition. Read More

The Triumphant Woman (Church), by Deaconess Adebisi Olobaniyi

Triumphant: having won a battle or contest. Victorious, successful, winning.
Jesus paid the ultimate price for you and for me, he died for all mankind. Romans 5:8 KJV – But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
It behoves on us to say do we need to keep fighting? Yes, but we know the end.
2 Corinthians 4:4-18
2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV [4] In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 KJV [17] For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; [18] While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Hallelujah, by Minister Yomi Sanusi

Hallelujah- transliterated from Hebrew as ‘Praise ye The Lord’, is a unique and powerful expression that could take massive volumes of discourse and not be fully covered. Throughout scripture, there was always a reason behind the direct invocation of Hallelujahs or equivalent expressions – and there were always significant consequences!

The first time it occurs in the Old Testament in Psalm 104.35 the topics were the righteous Judgement and Justice from God almighty that utterly consumes sinners and the wicked, and the blessing and praise consequently due God the Holy One.

The next four occurrences of Hallelujah relate to God’s powerful and wondrous miracles in Psalm 105; His track record of justice, faithfulness and determination in Psalm 106, the only chapter to start and end in hallelujah; an imperative and encouragement to revere Him in Psalm 111; and the wisdom derive divine blessing from praising God in Psalm 112.
