“He will never fail me, the man of the World will fail me, but Jesus never fail me”. Song.
That has ever remained his position. He has never failed those that believed and trusted in Him. He is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords. The Creator of Heaven and Earth. The Omnipotent and Omniscience. The Alpha and Omega.
He has the power and capacity to settle those that do His will. He does it at His own time because He is not man nor flesh. He is God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
This, of course, explains why the theme of today’s service is tagged “God’s Divine Settlement”.
He owns the World. He decides who to settle and when to release the blessings or settlement. His wisdom cannot be questioned by any man. Him alone knows the heart of man. You must be clean and righteous to inherit or get his settlement. There must be a close relationship between you and God before you are settled.
He confirmed His word as recorded in “1Pet 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you”.
His word can never change. After suffering for a while, He says He will make us perfect, establish, strengthen and settle us. We claim it in Jesus Name Amen.
“Jer 29:11says “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end -12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you”.
And came the time for the Intercessory prayers. This was anchored by Pastor Fustina Ogben, a young growing minister of God. She religiously delivered the prayer points as directed by the Holy Spirit.
She prayed against evil spirit blocking our divine settlement from God. Settlement in the area of marriages, career, job opportunities, financial breakthrough and righteous life.
Pastor Ogben raised her voice loud and cried to God for the grace upon our lives to enable us access our settlement as well as to live a righteous life before our Creator God.
“Living in sin is an abomination against God. You cannot get God’s Divine Settlement so long as you live in sin, she noted”.
Thereafter, the Prophet in the House, Prophet Sunday Obi with humility ushered the Ministering Pastor, Mrs. Sarah Omini to present the Word.
Diligently like her mentor, Prophet Sunday Obi, she graciously spoke and delivered the word as directed by the Holy Spirit.
“Our God is a God of Divine Settlement. When He settles you, you are settled for life. He does not owe any man. When he pays, He pays in full”.
“Every negative situation you are passing through touches God with the feelings of our pains as recorded in Heb 4:14. Affliction is only for a moment 2Cor.4:17/Ps.30:5/1Pter.5:10”.
She admonished us not to use our mental imagination to calculate time for our settlement because ” a while could be a training and maturing time to be able to handle the divine settlement in our lives. Jer. 32:17 says “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee”. That is God talking. That is God for you. You can also read Luke 18:27 to see who God is. He has never changed nor failed his children.
She enjoined believers to make a choice to serve Jesus Josh.24:15, love God Matt.22:37 and must be born again in spirit and in truth.
“God in this service of settlement will divinely settle those that trust in him. He will compensate you for your lost glory. He will comfort you, restore you to a place of peace and rest in Jesus Name Amen”.
The word that came out of the minister was so powerful and caused the servant of God to burst into praise and worship songs as he danced towards the Arena Echo international choir for backup.
It was fun, awesome and spiritual in the realm as the congregation waited for their miracles, settlement and blessings in a joyful mood.
Prophet Sunday Obi as usual rendered several praise and worship songs to God to the admiration of all. The house was spiritually engulfed by the power of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
“He sang, “Jesus, you are so good to me in all circumstances, you are so good to me” and opened the gateway for the blessings of God to flow”.
According to him, “when God wants to settle you, He will make reference to your past. There must be a relationship between you and God. You must have to be up and doing”. Read 2 kings4:9-17 and 6:1-8″.
He declared “somebody needs a settlement today. Isaac sowed and got his settlement as recorded in Ge.26:12-27/24:21 respectively.”
“Those who trust and love God will get their Divine Settlement today.
He later offered corporate prayers seeking for the hand of God to come and settle his children.
The servant of God also blessed the “water and sand” as well as students as they resume lectures on Monday.
Above all, there were healings, testimonies, prophetic declaration and altar calls to His glory.
The communion service ended in praise and honour as the congregation went home relieved of their burdens and sorrows.
There was an overflow as usual. His Name shall be praised forever more. Alleluia. Amen!
