TOPIC: YOU CAN MULTIPLY GRACE AND PEACE IN YOUR LIFE

PASTOR CHRIS

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord (2 Peter 1:2).
Grace and peace are two extremely vital elements you must have working in your life in increasing measure, for you to live the transcendent life that you’ve received in Christ.

What is grace? Grace means more than unmerited favour; it refers to the divine influence on the human spirit. It’s the outworking or outward reflection of the beauty, power, perfection, excellence, virtue and glory of divinity in your human spirit. It’s a supernatural endowment that causes you to flourish and excel in all you do.

Peace means amongst other beautiful things, power over crisis. It’s translated from the Greek word “eir é n é ,” which is akin to the Hebrew word “shalom.” It doesn’t just refer to the peace of being safe from evil and destruction, but to that which brings rest and prosperity. When you have the peace of Jesus Christ, it means you have power over crisis, and are at rest in prosperity.

That’s the kind of life Jesus had when He walked the earth: He was full of grace and truth, and was at rest and in control, every time, every day, everywhere and in all circumstances! Peter tells us that the way to have grace and peace multiplied in your life is through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. You don’t have to pray, “O God, give me more grace,” or “multiply my peace.” You’re to make it happen for yourself, by giving yourself to the acquisition and application of the precise, full and absolute knowledge (Greek-Epignosis) of God.

Too many people are suffering and struggling in life when they ought to be living in the transcendental blessings that have been made available to us in Christ Jesus. The reason they’re suffering is because of ignorance. Get to know more of God; study the Word! Become acquainted with Him through fellowship and meditation on the Scriptures, and His grace and peace will be multiplied in your life.
CONFESSION
The grace of God is evident and manifest in my life; I’m blessed and highly favoured in all things. The peace of God that surpasses all understanding guards my heart. I have power over crises and I’m at peace in prosperity! I’m on top, in charge and in control of circumstances, because Christ is in me, and He’s my peace. Blessed be God!
FURTHER STUDY:
2 Peter 1:5
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

2 Peter 3:18
But grow in grace, and [in] the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him [be] glory both now and forever. Amen.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES – Thursday, June 1st 2017

TOPIC: GLORY REALISED

PASTOR CHRIS

Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 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 1:26-27).

What some Christians assume from our opening scripture is that if Christ is in you, you have a hope of glory in the future. In a sense, that’s correct; if Christ is in you, there’s hope in your life for glory. But what that portion of Scripture means is, Christ in you is the fulfilment of that hope of glory. He’s not saying we have a hope that we’re going to have glory in the future, or in the sweet by and by. The hope that man was looking forward to has been fulfilled in Christ. Christ in you is glory realised.

The latter part of our theme scripture says, “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). This is the revelation or essence of Christianity. The glory that was lost in the Garden of Eden has been restored.

Adam lived in the presence of God and God’s presence was his light. That connection, that relationship, was the glory of God. Adam, and subsequently all men, were cut off from that glory in the Garden of Eden, when he sinned against God by committing high treason.

But now, you don’t have any reason to live outside the glory of God anymore, because the glory is here now; it’s in your spirit. How do you know that your life is excellent and full of glory? It’s because Christ is in you! That’s your hope for a flourishing life in health, prosperity, victory and success. That’s your confidence that you’ll never be defeated in life: Christ in you, your hope of the transcendent life.
PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for the indwelling presence of Christ in me; He’s the glory of my life. My life is the manifestation of the glory and righteousness of God. Thank you, blessed Father, for the triumphant life I have in Christ. As I behold the glory of God in the Word, I’m transformed into that same image, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
FURTHER STUDY:
John 17:22
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

1 John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Romans 8:30
Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

HOW BENSON IDAHOSA PAVED WAY FOR MYLES MUNROE’S BREAKTHROUGH

HOW BENSON IDAHOSA PAVED WAY FOR MYLES MUNROE’S BREAKTHROUGH

By May Olusola
Edited by Leke Beecroft

Ben n myles.jpg

The extraordinary Bible teacher and Founder of Bahamas Faith Ministries International Dr. Myles Munroe who died with his beautiful wife Pastor Ruth Ann Munroe and others in a small plane crash on November 9th, 2014 was among those who rose to prominence through the ministry of Benson Idahosa.

Munroe it is said had so much to share with the world and did so to the best of his ability before he passed on to glory. A speaker, bestselling author and senior pastor of BFMI, Munroe was born into a very poor family. He lived with his parents and 10 siblings in a two-bedroom shack in the Bahamas. They spent their early years sleeping on the floor among rats and cockroaches. At the age of 5, Munroe had his first vision while seated on a heap of dirty clothes. He saw himself as very successful, wearing nice clothes, driving nice cars, and traveling around the world in a private jet. Although too young to grasp what he saw, he took it and stored it in a box of faith to be opened when the time came. In the meantime he occupied his mind with watching television until the day his mother cautioned him, saying, “The more you watch TV, you will never get on TV.” That statement got him thinking and empowered him to substitute the time he was spending watching television with reading books. At the time of his death, he had written many bestselling books.

Munroe formed a successful Christian music group in his teenage years. Although his songs were about his life experiences, they attracted many young people into the Kingdom of God. He worked for the government of the Bahamas for four years as an administrative secretary of education and managed a Bible study fellowship at the same time. He was passionate about seeing people gain knowledge about God, although he had no plan of ever becoming a pastor. In no time, the Bible study outgrew his secular job, and he was about to find out that man can propose but God will dispose if it is not in His will for the individual.

The turning point for Munroe was a trip to attend a religious program in Tulsa, Oklahoma. On one of the program nights the scheduled speaker, the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa, wasn’t able to make it. Like a bolt out of the blue, Munroe was chosen to replace him. He spoke at 7:30 p.m. that evening. It was the only evening that week when the media, including TBN and some radio stations, were present. He was at the right place at the right time. He preached about the same Kingdom principles he taught until his death. From that night, his life story was rewritten and his international ministry was born. Book publishers, radio, and TV stations began approaching him.

The late Archbishop Benson Idahosa once said in one of his messages

“Success is Preparation meeting Opportunity”.

Myles Munroe probably listened to that message.
