The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail, by Minister Yomi Sanusi

This exhortation is on the compelling and irresistible Jesus Christ, his revelation and the church of God.

Scripture: Matthew 16:16-19, Isaiah 44, Isaiah 9, Isaiah 61, Hebrews 13.8, Mark 13:31, Romans 8.28-32

Already very well known as a most unusual teacher, healer, it was a settled fact that Jesus was an actual modern day miracle worker. An authoritative figure and religious character, he was obsessed with fervently preaching and speaking about the kingdom of heaven. Everything he did was just too perplexing for the custodians of the laws and scriptures. With unusual explanations, revolutionary understanding and ‘strange and radical’ interpretation of the law, they had no doubt there was something so significant about him they needed to do something to stop this man. The Pharisees and Sadducees were being confronted with evidence that Jesus knew more about their God and creator and had far greater access compared to them, the well established, recognised bona-fide authorities of the religious establishment.

The Unusual God, by Pastor Victor Olobaniyi

Text: Ezekiel 37: 1-10.
Other texts: Psalms 119: 89, Isaiah 40:8, Mark 13: 31, Numbers 23:19, Romans 3: 3-4.

I want to believe that all of us is convinced and not confused that whatever is written in the bible is true and forever settled.

The bible has no editions 1,2,3….it has been constant and it will continue to be.

I serve an unusual God that does unusual things in unusual ways.

Recently I had an unusual encounter with the unusual God and He did some unusual things in my life that I will like to share some with you this morning.

God took prophet Ezekiel in chapter 37 to an open valley full of dry bones and ask him a very “tempting” question which prophet Ezekiel was also diplomatic in answering.

God of All Flesh Has Favoured You, by Minister Yomi Sanusi

(How will you repay the generosity of a desperate and jealous lover?)
We continue with our theme for the month of July, The God of all flesh. Here we shall examine a few scriptures that demonstrate God’s love- His jealous love, and what He is intent on doing about it.

(Anchor) Jer 32. 26-27: Then came the word of the Lord unto Jeremiah, saying, Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?
The jealousy of God places a requirement of total devotion to him upon us.

The background to God’s rhetorical question posed through Jeremiah demonstrates the desperate attempt of God for His beloved and deliberately chosen, to come to a state of willing spontaneous fellowship. Read More

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.
