COMBINED SUNDAY SERVICE MESSAGE
PREACHER: PASTOR LAZARUS MUOKA (DADDY G. O)
TEXT: Exodus 3:6-10, Genesis 1:26-30, Matthew 6: 33
TOPIC: THE KINGDOM'S FABULOUS BLESSINGS
INTRODUCTION TO THE MESSAGE:
Brethren, from the beginning of this month, we have been discussing on "Fabulous Blessing" and you will agree with me that Our God is a
fabulous God (Malachi 1:14, Jeremiah 32:18-19), Our God is the Almighty and Omnipotent God (Psalm 121: 2). God that made heaven and earth has given it to the children of men (Matt 6: 33). If you are here today, count yourself as a privileged person. Due to God’s fabulous nature, He made man to dwell in a fabulous place and when man lost this place (Genesis 3:1-7), He did not waste time to recall man to Himself by sending His son Jesus Christ. God did not create man to suffer, it is sin that led men into suffering (Genesis 3:8-11, 23-24). When you sin, you will lose your privilege. When men are away from God, God will be looking for them (Exodus 3:6-8), that is God showing that He want men to live in fabulous blessing (Deuteronomy 6:11), living in a place which we did not build (Deuteronomy 11:11-12).
For more understanding, the message shall be considered under the following subheadings;
POINT 1: GOD’S FABULOUS KINGDOM, OUR FOREMOST NEED AND REASONS.
Note: As a result of sin of Adam, mankind was separated from God’s fabulous blessing (Romans 3:23). If you are here seeking for blessing, the first thing is to reconcile with God (Matthew 6:33, Luke 15:31, 1 Corinthians 3:21-23). When Adam and Eve were maintaining righteousness, they were not suffering but their sin separated them from it. So, no matter what you possess outside the kingdom, it is considered as nothing before God and is considered to be stolen (John 15:5, John 10:9-10, John 14:6).
If you acquire wealth without Jesus Christ, you are a thief and a robber. Such person will be brought to book on Judgement day. (Matthew 4:8-9). Devil has nothing neither has he created any but a deceiver. (Matthew 4:10), do not be deceived (Mark 8:35-37), when you drop your body here, you cannot go with any material things but into everlasting punishment (Matthew 25:46). The need is to reconcile with God through Jesus Christ (Matthew 11:27-28). Some of you has been deceived to join cult, they have nothing to offer. (Luke 14:17), if you will come into the kingdom of God today, all things shall be given unto you. My friend, those that knows their God, they shall be strong and shall do exploit. (Philippians 4:13,19). In time of economic meltdown, our resources is from above and God will supply all our need.
POINT 2: FABULOUS BLESSING, THE INHERITANCE OF GOD’S CHILDREN AND RESPONSE:
As we said before, our God is a Fabulous God and He is the owner of Fabulous Blessing and kingdom. He has promised to give it to His children on earth. Those God called in the time past, He blessed with all things. In the case of Abraham (Genesis 12:1-3, Genesis 13:2, Genesis 24: 1), God blessed him with all things when he departed from his kindred to obey God. The same with the Apostle, David and the Children of Israel (Deuteronomy 28:1-2, Psalm 24:1, Isaiah 54:15-17). God will bless you and will protect you, (Psalm 121:7, Psalm 115:16), go and do exploit in the world for God has given it to us the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. (Luke 14:16-20). Some always give different excuses when God has promised us all things.
For those who are not born again, they stand a risk of losing their wealth to children of God (Psalm 2:8). Our response to this message is to come into the kingdom of fabulous blessing, your blessing is not in the market but in the kingdom. Serve God more, maintain the presence of God (Exodus 23:25-27). Believers, come to the church on time and be more serious with God, maintain righteousness in all side.
For sinners and backsliders to be saved, they must confess their sins and repent from them, ask Jesus Christ to come into their lives (Romans 3:23; 6:1; Ezekiel 18:4, Romans 6:23; 1 John 3:8-9; 1 John 5:17a; John 10:10; John 6:36; Proverb 28:13; Mathew 6:33; Romans 10:13) and they shall be saved.
