TOPIC: THINK AND TALK PROSPERITY
PASTOR CHRIS
Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever (Psalm 112:1-3).

The Christian is an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Christ. Romans 8:17 says, “And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ….”This means all things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21). If you function with this mind-set, you’ll always walk in superabundance.
Some people have struggled all their lives; they’ve lived in lack, want and penury for so long that it has become so hard to believe in prosperity. The challenge is with their minds; if they can only think right, things will change. Romans 12:2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind….”Change your thinking; your consciousness, and it’ll show in your language.
Once you can think it, you’ll begin to talk it. There’s no penalty for thinking and talking big, nor is there any law against it. Think and talk success. In Joshua 1:8, God said, “Meditate!” In other words, think and talk the Word. As you do, you’ll make your way prosperous, and have good success.
God didn’t create you to suffer and struggle through life. He didn’t plan a miserable life for you. His Word, apart from showing you His will for your life, also reveals your inheritance in Christ. 2 Corinthians 8:9 declares, “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.” Jesus became poor that we might become rich. This isn’t a promise; it’s a reality. All you have to do to enjoy the life of prosperity He’s given you is to live in His Word!
2 Peter 1:3 says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue. ”This should become your thinking. 1 Corinthians 3:21 says, “Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours. ”These are present-hour truths. Meditate upon them until your whole mentality is not only overhauled, but also completely transformed and inundated with possibilities of the prosperous life.

PRAYER

Precious Father, I thank you for your grace, love and kindness. You’ve set me up on high, to walk in superabundance. I’m blessed and highly favoured, enriched with all I require for life and godliness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that [men] may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and [that] their kings [may be] brought. 
2 Corinthians 9:8 AMP 

And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].

TOPIC: *THE LOVE-WAY .*
PASTOR CHRIS
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God (1 John 4:7).

The greatest power in the world is love. The love-way is the right way. Jesus didn’t get offended at those who abused and tortured Him; rather He said, “…Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do…”(Luke 23:34). So, why would a Christian get so offended by someone who said something against him and say, “In the Name of Jesus Christ, I command their house to burn; I command fire upon their heads”; that’s unwise.
Some people go to the extent of studying a book of curses to learn how to curse others, despite what the Bible says,*“Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not”*_ (Romans 12:14). As a Christian, you’re called to bless. James 3:11-12 asks, “Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.”
Never be so offended to the point of pouring invectives on others. Remember, you have a wholesome tongue that speaks healing, life and righteousness; so use it only to bless. Don’t let anger dominate or rule you. Those who are ruled by anger can’t handle spiritual authority; they can’t use the Name of Jesus for the higher things of life. Ephesians 4:26 says, _*“Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.”
You must tame and dominate anger, as well as impatience, frustration and hatred. You were born to love; refuse to allow anything agitate you to act otherwise. Even those that set themselves up to be your enemies, according to the words of Jesus, are still deserving of love: “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you” (Matthew 5:44).
We’re to love others selflessly and unconditionally as Christ has loved us: “Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (1 John 3:16).

PRAYER

Dear Father, I thank you for your love, which is the hallmark of my life. I love unconditionally, because that’s my nature in Christ. I live in peace, joy and blessings, free of every unnecessary weight of anger and malice, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

FURTHER STUDY:

Corinthians 13:1-8 NIV 

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

TOPIC: TALK THE WORD ONLY.
PASTOR CHRIS
Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all… (Galatians 4:1-2).

An heir is someone who has an inheritance bequeathed to him, a legal inheritor of something: an estate or positon of high authority and wealth. However, this heir, as long as he remains a “child” (Greek: “Nepios”) will live in servitude because of his immaturity, despite being the legal inheritor of a vast estate.
The characteristic thing about a “nepios” is that he can’t talk right; he doesn’t have the intelligence of a mature person, and as a result, he’s unable to communicate sensibly with his speech. Some Christians are that way; they haven’t mastered the use of their tongue yet. Yes, the Word says they’re heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ, but they can’t live the life of an heir, because they haven’t matured spiritually.
In Christ Jesus, you’ve been given dominion over circumstances. You’re superior to Satan and the forces of darkness. You have unlimited wealth, and access to limitless resources. You’ve been given the power of attorney to use the Name of Jesus and reign as a king in this world. Nevertheless, as long as you haven’t learnt to talk right and talk the Word only, you’ll live as a victim.
God has already given you everything you need to live triumphantly in life: “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3). 1 Corinthians 3:21 says, “…all things are yours.” But here’s the key: 1 Corinthians 2:13 says, “Which things also we speak…” ; meaning that the same things God has said about you should be your confessions as well.
However, you can’t speak them if you don’t know them, which is why you must get yourself trained in the Word of God. Be sure to be in church regularly to learn the Word of God. Study to know and apply the Word for yourself so you’ll be able to handle your inheritance, as well as know how to use the authority bequeathed to you in Christ.

PRAYER

Through the Holy Spirit, I’m taught and instructed in the life of Christ, and positioned to enjoy the great inheritance bequeathed to me in Him. My life is an expression of the realities of the glorious life of righteousness that I have in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Appointed Unto Glory
Pastor Chris

What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory (Romans 9:22-23). 

The Apostle Paul in the foregoing verses of Scripture deals with predestination. He tells us that there’re vessels appointed to God’s wrath—for destruction, and there’re vessels appointed to God’s mercy. He states that the vessels of mercy were appointed to glory; God prepared them in advance unto glory. Who are these vessels of mercy? It’s those of us who are born again. Romans 9:24 says, “Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?” Blessed be God! 
We’re God’s vessels of mercy, appointed to glory. Romans 8:29-30 explains it. It says, “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 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.” 
Ours is a life of glory in Christ Jesus. You’re appointed to live in divine health, strength, abundance and prosperity. You’re predestined to be conformed to the image of God’s Son. He created you to be just like Jesus. In Hebrews 1:3, the Bible describes Jesus as the effulgence of God’s glory, “…and the express image of his person….” The same truth applies to you today, “…because as he (Jesus) is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). 
You’re the express image of God’s Person and the out-shining of His glory. So, like Jesus, you’re glorified. That means you’re to live a life of glory, not a life of reproach, defeat, penury, sickness, or disease; you’ve been handpicked for the glory-life. Hallelujah!

Prayer
Dear Father, I thank you for appointing me unto your glory. The glory is in my spirit, and it’s evidently manifest in all that I do. Your grace is at work in me, producing health, wealth, prosperity, increase, abundance, favours and blessings, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 
2 Corinthians 3:18

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. 
1 Samuel 2:8

8 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, [and] lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set [them] among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth [are] the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them.

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.
