BELIEVE THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL
-Pastor Olumese
Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV), “Christ hast redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written: Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree. That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
The good news of the Gospel is a substantial truth that makes us realize the bad news of who we were and how imminent and desperately we needed someone to redeem us from the curse of the law. Thank God for Jesus. God so loved us that He couldn’t have allowed us to continue under the weight of the mistake of Adam, and so He sent Jesus Christ to reconnect us to the blessing by such an amazing Grace. The gospel is so simple; it is all about the love of God. Do you believe the gospel? Have you accepted the love of God in Christ?
We may never enjoy the benefit of an instrument until we understand the tangible need for it. So also we may not fall at the feet of Jesus Christ until we understand the depravity of our own heart and the judgment that will be exerted by a just God in the end. Romans 3:10b tells us, “…There is none righteous, no not one.” The Bible goes on in Romans 3:20 to says, “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.”  Keeping the Ten Commandments in its totality is not your justification before God. Men may be carried away by deeds, but not God.  John 5:39 (NLT) says, “You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to Me.” A diligent study of the Scriptures does not make God look into your direction either except you find and accept God’s love revealed in the person of Jesus Christ. 
Dear friend, the Bible is clear in its terms and we must follow suit. There is only one way by which we have been redeemed from the curse of the law. It is Christ Jesus. Believe and trusting absolutely in Him gives us the benefits we ought to enjoy as children of the Most High God. You don’t have to suffer one more day, believe in Jesus Christ today!
FURTHER STUDY: Acts 15:11, “But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.”
CONFESSION: I BOLDLY CONFESS I AM REDEEMED FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW. I BELIEVE IN JESUS; I BELIEVE THE GOSPEL WITH ALL MY HEART, MIND AND SOUL. THEREFORE I AM FREE AND SAVED!
ACTION POINT: Believe in the grace of Jesus Christ.
ONE YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN: Job 5-7; Acts 8:1-25
#GoodNews: As we begin the 2nd quarter of 2017, we want to start with thanksgiving. Join us for MID-YEAR THANKSGIVING this Sunday at 9am with Folake Jesu leading praise! See you there!

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES – Saturday, 24 June 2017
TOPIC: TURN HIS LIGHT ON
PASTOR CHRIS 
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee (Isaiah 60:1).
The Word of God is the light of life. Turn the light on, and you’ll see the unseen; you’ll see the realities of the spirit realm. Suddenly, you’ll discover that everything you thought was missing wasn’t missing. You’ll realize that you actually have in abundance everything you thought you never had. Once you turn the light of God on, never turn it off again. You’re called to walk in that light: in the light of His righteousness, His redemption, His justification, His wisdom, and His prosperity; you’re to walk in the light of the new creation. 
Sometimes, when studying or listening to God’s Word, you seem to leave this world. The things of this life: the pains, the darkness, the disappointments, and the crises of life just seem to fade away. Don’t think it’s just a mirage; you’ve been transported of the Holy Ghost to the true realm of life. Don’t say, “Well, as I listened to the Word during the service, I thought I was in heaven, but now I’m back to reality.” Returning to reality in this sense would mean going back into darkness. Hold on to what you’ve received. Say, “The glory that I saw in the Word is the real thing. I hold on to it.” Glory to God! 
Do you want to see who you really are and what you have? Turn the light of God on. There’s a lot you’ll never see if you’re using the light of the sun or earthly electricity. The light of God—the true light—shows you that you’re in divine health; it shows you the perfect will of God, and all that you are in Him. See yourself the way God sees you: an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Christ!
CONFESSION
The Word of God is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. As I see with the light of the Word, I see myself as the royalty that I am, victorious, prosperous, healthy, wise, and strong, and I walk in the light of this truth.
FURTHER STUDY:
2 Corinthians 4:6 
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 
John 8:12 
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

TOPIC: VICTORS FOR LIFE.
PASTOR CHRIS
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations (James 1:2).
As you grow in your Christian walk, you’ll definitely have your fight of faith; it’s a must for everyone. The Bible calls it a good fight, because you’re guaranteed to always win. Some people see the fight of faith differently; they see challenges as insurmountable difficulties. Every time something happens, they cry, feeling sorry for themselves. If only such people knew how much the devil likes to see them cry, and enjoys their frustration, they’ll never give him the luxury. 
Realise that as a Christian, Christ lives in you; that makes you a victor for life. The Bible says, “…greater is he that’s in you, than he that’s in the world” (1 John 4:4). This is a present-hour reality. Romans 8:35-37 says, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”
You’re unconquerable. See challenges as springboards to your next level of glory. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 says, “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 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.” That situation, no matter how dire or frustrating it seems, is a light affliction. That’s how the Word describes it and that’s how you ought to see and relate with it. 
Learn how to laugh your way through life! No matter what you’re going through, rejoice, because it’s a light affliction that’ll certainly produce for you, a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. It’s your heritage to be triumphant always, and in every situation. Hallelujah!
CONFESSION
I refuse to consider the present circumstances on the outward side of life. I’ve got my focus on the eternal; I’ve got my gaze on the spiritual. I give attention to the real, not the shadows. I look within me where God lives, and see the unseen, which is eternal.
FURTHER STUDY:
Psalm 1:1-3 
Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 
1 Timothy 6:12 
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

TOPIC: THERE ARE GOOD THINGS IN YOU 
 
PASTOR CHRIS
That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus (Philemon 1:6).
For you to be effective in the communication of your faith, there has to be an acknowledgement of the good things in you. There’re no bad things in you. Some people don’t know this, so they’re always looking for something that’s wrong with them. They’re always talking themselves down, focusing always on their inabilities, disabilities, and frustrations. That’s not right! There are good things in you, and you’ve got to acknowledge them.
As a child of God, the very life of God is in you: “To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). Christ is in you; He lives in your heart. Acknowledge it. Affirm that greater is He that’s in you than he that’s in the world. This means you’re not an ordinary person. You have the ability of God and excellence of the Spirit in you. You can reign in this life because you have the righteousness of God. You’re special!
Why is it so important to acknowledge the good things in you in Christ Jesus? It’s because they’re spiritual and are actualized or activated by acknowledgement. The Bible says, “They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said,Ye are gods;and all of you are children of the most High.But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes” (Psalm 82:5-7).
The above verses are very revealing. It shows why many live miserably and die like ordinary men, even though they’re gods and children of the Most High.They’ve never acknowledged who they are, what they have, their abilities and potentials in Christ Jesus; this has made their faith ineffective.
CONFESSION.
As I meditate on God’s Word, my spirit is programmed for absolute mastery, success, and transcendental blessings. I’m blessed and highly favoured. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places . I have a goodly heritage. Everything that belongs to me is glorious and wonderful. Hallelujah 
 
FURTHER STUDY:
Ephesians  2:10 
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Psalms  139:14-16 
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.  139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.  139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

TOPIC: PROVE THE WORD.    
PASTOR CHRIS
…prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts… (Malachi 3:10).  
God gave us His Word so we can live by it. The Word of God has the capacity and ability to take you through any situation in life victoriously. Isaiah 43:2 says, “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” However, you have a responsibility to prove the Word; to work out the Word in your life. 
Too many Christians go through life struggling and suffering, when they ought to be living in the transcendental blessings that have been made available to us in Christ Jesus. The reason for this is either because they’re ignorant or just won’t put the Word to work. You hear of a Christian who was so sick until he died, and some would say, “Well, sickness comes to everybody.” No, that’s not true! Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….” Ignorance is the bane of many. 
It’s either we’re Christians in truth or we’re not. It’s either what we believe works or it doesn’t. If it doesn’t, what are we doing with it? If it works (and thank God it does), then let’s keep “working” it. Something you must do for yourself is to prove the Word of God in your own life. That way, you can neither be deceived nor miss your way in life. You have to know for yourself that the Gospel of Christ that you’ve believed is real. 
God isn’t afraid to be put on the spot. Dare to take Him at His Word. He said in Malachi 3:10, “…prove me now herewith….” A lot of people don’t understand that their blessings aren’t in God’s hands, but it’s in their own hands, because Jesus already did everything needed for you to be superabundantly blessed. For example, the whole world has been saved by Jesus, because He died for everybody, but it’s only those who hear about it, believe it, accept and confess His Lordship, that receive salvation. 
If you hear the Word and don’t act on it, it’ll not work, no matter how much that Word inspires you. You must take the next necessary step of acting accordingly for it to produce results in your life.
PRAYER   
Dear Father, thank you for the power of your Word and its ability to take me through life victoriously. I’m a doer of the Word of God! As I look into the Word, I’m transfigured into the realities that I see; pictures and visions of glory, success and excellence, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. 
FURTHER STUDY: 
James 1:22-25  
22. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 
23. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:  
24. For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 
25. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth [therein], he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.  
2 Corinthians 3:18 
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord.

KEEP YOUR SPIRIT ON FIRE FOR GOD
– Pastor Olumese
Romans 12:11-12 (NIV), “Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
Let me start today by making it crystal clear that your life cannot grow beyond the capacity of your spirit. Your spirit is too important in the scheme of your total life for you to live it to chance. You must always remind yourself that you do not just have a spirit, no, you are a spirit! Without a robust spirit, you are finished. You would be a cheap prey to the ever increasing dangers and calamities of the modern world! Job 17:1 (NKJV) says, “My Spirit is broken, my days are extinguished, the grave is ready for me.” The Bible also says in Proverbs 18:14 (NKJV), “The Spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness, but who can bear a broken spirit?”
The price to pay for a diseased spirit is too costly, and this is why God has sent His word to you today, reminding you to place priority and emphasis on the development of your spirit. Just like your physical body, the way to ensure the proper development and stability of your body is through proper nutrition and exercise. We must also ensure that we adequately feed and exercise our spirit. This is the only way to ensure that we never lack zeal and we maintain our spiritual fire and intensity according to our anchor scripture for today.
The food for the spirit is the Word of God! And, we exercise our spirit through prayer and application of the Word. If you are so interested in maintaining the glow of your spirit, you must consciously put in place a schedule to ensure that you are always studying and meditating on the word of God. Joshua 1:8a (NKJV) says, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night…” Also, prayer should become a consistent lifestyle for you. Luke 1:18 (NKJV) say, “Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart,” When word study and prayer become your lifestyle, you will develop a strength in your spirit that can sustain you into all round victory.
FURTHER STUDY: Luke 2:40 (NKJV), “And the child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.”
CONFESSION: I BOLDLY CONFESS, MY SPIRIT IS CONSTANTLY ON FIRE FOR GOD. I GIVE NO TIME TO SLOTHFULNESS OR WEAKNESS. I AM AN ADDICTED STUDENT OF SCRIPTURE AND I PRAY EXTENSIVELY IN THE SPIRIT. I AM MAKING PROGRESS.
ACTION POINT: Begin to give special attention to the things of the Spirit.

MONDAY 19TH
JESUS IS THE BRIDGE
-Pastor Ogechi
1 Timothy 2:5 (NLT), “For There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity – the man Christ Jesus. He gave His life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave the world at just the right time.”
By the sin of Adam, man was locked without hope into a chaotic cycle of continuous failure and struggling. In Genesis 3:17-19 (NKJV), God, in response to Adam’s action of disobedience, said, “Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’: Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground…” no matter how hard any man tries, the cycle will continue because no amount of strength or physical determination could save any descendent of Adam from the curse of God. 
The Bible says in 1 Samuel 2:9 (NIV), “He will guard the feet of His faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. It is not by strength that one prevails.” Only God can take man out of the prison of the cursed life and bring Him into a new vista of possibilities. Thanks be to God, a special bridge has been provided for us. We no longer need to be connected to Adam and the curse that came upon Him, we no longer need to be separated from the Father God. We can come through the bridge called Christ and remain in the presence of God forever without timidity. John 14:6 (NKJV) says, “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” 
The gospel is simple; you don’t have to stay in the place of spiritual deprivation and confusion, because we now have a mediator; we now have a bridge – Jesus Christ the righteous!       
FURTHER STUDY: Colossians 1:12-13 (NLT), “Always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to His people, who live in the light. For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his dear Son.”
CONFESSION: I BOLDLY CONFESS, I HAVE BEEN DISCONNECTED FROM ADAM AND THE CURSE UPON HUMANITY. I AM CONNECTED TO CHRIST, AND THROUGH HIM I HAVE WALKED INTO THE BLESSINGS OF GOD FOR THE NEW CREATION. I AM ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED PRAISE GOD.
ACTION POINT: Make a list of your ‘in-Christ’ realities and keep confessing them.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES – Monday, June 19 2017
TOPIC: HE FORMS HIMSELF IN US
PASTOR CHRIS
Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed (Proverbs 16:3 AMP).
The Lord Jesus is the Word of God made flesh. Thus, the only way to receive Him in your life is by receiving God’s Word. When the Word gets into your heart, it imparts faith and effects changes. You become the express image of His person; God forms Himself in you through His Word. His words are His thoughts passed to your spirit. That’s what the Spirit explains through Paul in Ephesians 4:23 by telling us to be renewed in the spirit of our minds.
Romans 12:2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”  The renewing of your mind is simply exchanging your thoughts for His thoughts. You replace your opinions with His, and see from His perspective. In Christianity, we’re called to express God; His thoughts, opinions, will and His righteousness.
1 Peter 2:21 says, “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps.”  The Father wants us to be like Jesus; we were born with the same life, created in His image and in His likeness. He’s the unveiling of the Father; the express image of His person. He was God in the body of a Jewish man from Nazareth. If you express His thoughts, will, ideas, opinions, and righteousness, God also will be manifest in you.
This is what God wants. He not only wants you to have His life in you, He wants you to live it out. He doesn’t just want to be there potentially; He wants to be there in reality, walking, talking, blessing lives and manifesting His glory through you.
CONFESSION
I’m born anew with the life and nature of God. I walk, talk, think and act like Him. I have the mind of Christ, and I manifest His wisdom and glory in everything that I do. I think high thoughts: thoughts that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report. Glory to God!
FURTHER STUDY:
Romans 12:1-2
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
1 Corinthians 2:16
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
