From the beginning of the Earth the Word of God has always done what God says it will do. The Word itself is God. It is Light and Life. It has never lied nor failed. It leads to our Salvation, Dominion and Righteousness, Praise Master Jesus – Alleluia!.
This week’s theme is “The Principles of Harvest”. Before you harvest as a farmer, you must plant a seed and allow it to grow. In the case of a believer, you must hear the Word, Speak the Word for it to do what God says it will do. If you don’t seek the face of the Lord, He will distance you. He wants your relationship always. His nature is love, joy and goodness among others.
You can only access God, when you have the Word at your heart and put into practice what it says always. Our God is alive always. He loves His Sons and Daughters. He is there for us, hence He is calling on us today to learn how to sow before harvesting. He is a jealous God. He returns to you the measure of your love or seed as the case might be. That’s the nature of our God,
“2 Corinthians 9:6 says, “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.”
No wonder, the Man of God, Pastor Thompson Ubong while anchoring the Intercessory prayer points delivered accordingly as the spirit of God overshadowed the entire Arena premises usherin the Holy Spirit into our midst, Glory be to God.
Taking his point from Psa 126:6 “He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”
He raised prayer points that God make our seed to bear precious fruit, may our plant bring forth bountiful harvest from season to season, uproot any one standing against my bountiful harvest in Jesus Name Amen, deliver me in every part of my life that is sleeping, deliver me from every spiritual disconnect and let your light shine in my life, and that whoever planted evil seed in my life, let the Holy spirit crush them.
“Prayed that let the seed be destroyed by thunder and fire in Jesus Name Amen, let them be destroyed by the authority of the state Word, destroy anyone tampering on our destiny, those who engage in spoiling my name as I connect with the grace of Prophet Sunday Obi, let them be destroyed, whoever that has stolen my star, let them be under God’s judgement”.
Pst. Ubong thereafter called for confessional prayers as he decreed “I am the head and not the tail, I refuse to borrow to survive, I see light out of darkness in my life and I shall live to testify”. Praise Master Jesus – Amen.
Read Jh.10:10/Matt 13:25/Psa.126:6/Lk1:5-10 in your quiet time, Amen.
The Arena Echo International choir rendered a song “Do not conclude with my present condition” to the admiration of the congregation. It was touchy and spiritual.
The Giant of Africa, Prophet Sunday Obi, says “in God’s calendar, a Zero can become a Hero”. Today God is saying if you are not recognized by the World, He will recognize you today in Jesus Name Amen.
He reminded the congregation that “I am half human and half spirit”. Don’t disregard my instructions, the are direct from God. I am a Major Prophet. He says “some people may be asking the Prophet says Tinubu will not be sworn-in and he has been sworn-in? God does not lie. His Word may tarry, but it will surely come to pass”.
God’s Own General, Prophet Sunday Obi, in his usual humility and characteristics, ushered in the Mother of the Commission Mama Sarah Abraham to the Pulpit to deliver the Word entitled “The Principles of Harvest”.
She defined Principle ‘as rule, tenet or nature, mode of operation or fundamental truth while harvest is the process of gathering in crops or riped fruits.
The principle of harvest in this service means how to proper in the Kingdom of God.
It can be in your academics, business, marriage, finance etc. Blessed is the hand that giveth.
According to her, before harvest comes sowing must be there to be able to harvest. (Lk 6:38).
Qualify sowing brings sufficiency multiplication and righteousness. No seed means no love for God, it means no Faith too. It helps to overcome covetousness, increases your dependency on God.
She says “informed Christians sow with understanding. Sow wisely and not like a gambler in the church. Let your source be geninue, check your mind set because God loves a cheerful giver.
Did you know that your time, talent, strength, service in the church and prayers are seed sowing? God bless you as you partake in the activity in the church.
The following Bible verses can be of tremendous help: G.8:22/Lk6:38/8:5/2Cort.9:6/Isa.55:8-10 etc..
Furthermore, Prophet Obi says, “The Word of God is like the soil. It is always fertile in our hearts “…
He attempted to define the theme saying prosperity is real.
“For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:– Isaiah 55:10”.
“And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.– Luke 8:6”
Harvest, he says comes after labour. He referenced G.8:22 in the Bible. We must sow before harvest. You must have a seed to sow before the reward. Qualify sowing brings sufficiency and multiplication.(Lk 8:5-8). Sowing is very important in our lives. There is time to sow, there is time to harvest.
Bountiful reaping is the increased harvest of this righteousness. God is the Giver, not Taker, on both sides of our giving: He gives seed before we give so that we can sow it generously; and he gives harvest after we give so that we are rewarded for our generosity.
“If you sow evil, you reap evil. There is time to sow. Preserve your good harvest. We reap in proportion of what we sow.”
He said “blessed is the one that giveth than the one that receiveth. Giving makes a way. Today God will change the life style of someone to know how to give, Alleluia!!.
Prophet Sunday Obi says, “if you don’t give, you will not get either. I was nobody, but today I am somebody. God has turn my captivity around for good. Learn to give and in turn God will reward you in Jesus Name Amen.
For further study read the following Bible verses,Gal 6:7-8/Jer17:5-8/Lk6:8/Provb 14:23.etc.
Though, the removal of fuel subsidy surfaced, but those who love their God attended the service with joy flowing in their hearts.
As usual, the presence of God, was manifest. The Angels and the Holy spirit took over the ARENA premises from the beginning of the service till the end. It started well and ended well to the glory of God.
Signs and wonders were many to the glory of God. He did what He knows how to do. God is God. He is alive.
It was marvelous in His sight. The theme spoke for its self. As they sowed their seeds, their captivity turned around for good.
