Sunday Glory … Recognize God

Sunday Glory!!!

Today is another day that the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad.

Lighthouse Chapel International Memory Verse of the Week:
Proverbs 29:18 KJV
[18] Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
For want of a better understanding I strayed to The Message Bible :
If people can’t see what God is doing,
they stumble all over themselves;
But when they attend to what he reveals,
they are most blessed.

This week’s memory verse is a call to order to recognize God, identify what he does in our lives as well as what he wants us to do to become and remain blessed.
As we take a new week, you can use these prayer points to pray
* Recognize God in your life by thanking him even for the things you consider minute in your life like these pair of eyes you are using to read this message with.
* Thank God even for the tough situation(s) you may be facing and recognize that this is a season in preparation for the blessing. Your present situation is mentioned in one of these seasons in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
* Ask for the perfect will of God in your life. Some of us are in the permissive will of God because we have designed what we want and he has let us have it.It is time to go back to our Father and ask him to teach us from our heart to say let His Will be done in our lives so that we can enjoy the benefits he has for us (Jeremiah 28:11).For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Have a great week .

Why You Should (or Must ) Go To Church

On a fine Sunday morning like this , the question is where would you be and what are you going to be doing ? Sitting at home trying to catch up on some office work that has to be submitted on Monday morning, or tired from a night out , just lazy to pull yourself out of bed or you don’t have the appropriate outfit to church?
Whatever it is , do yourself this favor , wake up , dress up with what you can find , go to church and share the joy of how just being in the presence of God feels and the impacts.
Some of us have divided the Bible into two parts : “Your Testament” and “God’s Testament” and usually your testament takes priority over the later. Remember, you are either for God or against Him and I love the way the New Living Translation Bible simplifies Matthew 12:30
“Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me.”

I hear a lot of my friends say their church is in their hearts, that they don’t go to church and it is not a prerequisite for Heaven.
And some of them go as far as saying, I don’t go to “those your kind of churches” , yes don’t come! even to go to the ones we were brought up in you still don’t go.
It is about time to put that funny “grand frere” (devil) to shame by waking up this morning and going to fellowship with the brethren.
Be like the prodigal son who rose up after suffering in a strange land and went back to his father’s house with the intention of being a servant. Your Father will receive you happily and throw a feast for you.

On this note , I am sharing some of the reasons why you should, rather you must fellowship with the brethren.
* Keeping the Sabbath Holy
I heard an older man say that back in the days when you visit English Cameroon ,on a Sunday morning, you will only hear people singing but will not see anyone reasons been they had all gone to church.
What happens to the values we were taught in respect of the Fourth Commandment, keep the Sabbath Holy.
Exodus 20: 8-11
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.Perchance this part of our Bible is missing! Do we observe the Sabbath day? This is for you to answer between your Heavenly Father and yourself. Do you now work for seven days? just curious! Have you created another earth? What amazed me over time is whatever you try to do after stealing your church time never really gets done within the time you stole.
* Be like Christ
If we say we are true Christians then under stp(stand temperature and pressure) we should strive to be like Christ Jesus. Jesus went to church regularly.
In Luke 4:16 it is clearly noted that Jesus had made it a custom to go to church so why is ours different?
It is time to renew this christ like spirit with you.

* It is a Good Habit
When Hebrews 10:25KJV said “as a manner of some is” , it was for those of us who have decided that we are not obliged to go to church on Sundays and for other church activities (meetings, evangelization , outreach,name it – you know the responsibilities you have been called up to do in the house of God and you have abandoned it.).
I like the way the NIV says it, “not giving up meeting together” which means sometimes we will feel staying away from church and church activities for one reason or the other but you need to stand firm and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you. Offense is usually what keeps a lot of people away from church, and no one should lie to you , people will offend you more in church and guess what that is how you offend other but through Christ that strengthens us you learn to love, forgive and guide other to handle offences.
Hebrews 10:25 NIV
not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

* Growth in Your Relationship With God
Most of us have fallen in love before, when you do , all you want is spend time with the person you are in love with, call them, text them, smile, hug and hold them as well as share sweet memories, for a love that will eventually fade away , other times you quarrel and resolve it and we know how that goes but when it comes to God, whose love never fails we don’t want to stay in his presence and we expect the love to grow?
If you need this love to grow and last forever then start today by
Spending Time With Him – Exodus 20:8 / Hebrews 10:25
Listen to Him talk to you – Joshua 1:8
Call & Text Him on direct line – Matthew 26:41 / Mark 11:24
Smile, Hug & Hold Him Close – Jeremiah 23:23
Sing & Dance for and with Him – Psalms 100 : 1 – 5
Spend Quality & Private Time With Him – Matthew 6:6

In the subsequent weeks we will analyze these in detail. Today, just listen to his voice, wake up,get dressed … fully and head to your Father’s House.
If you have any difficulty finding a place of worship then find a Lighthouse Chapel International Church in your area and go fellowship with the brethren where you are served with the unadulterated word of God.

Born Again!!!

For me I can’t say I just met God.I have known Him as long as I could understand, to read and to write.Amazingly I have had a taste of the Catholic Faith because I went to a Catholic Primary School for Seven Years, born to a Protestant (Presbyterian) Mother and had to walk back home from Presbyterian Church Bota to Behind Ambas Bay, Gardens, Limbe.
I learnt how to pray as a family when I spent time with my childhood friends the Achus (Aunty Kay, Ethel, Nina, Lloyd and Mummy Rosemary of blessed memory) just a few weeks before going to college.
I got into contact with the Baptist Faith in Saker Baptist College and this is where I got to really know who God is and will always be.
Through our daily devotions, Sunday school and the Spiritual Emphasis, this school taught me that the only way to live was to start each day with God.
In 2001, I went to the Presbyterian High School in Kumba where Morning & Event Devotion is part of the school program as it in the case with most mission schools.

In 2013 I began fellowshipping at Lighthouse Chapel International and this is where I learnt on what it means to be born again and creating a deep relationship with God.
In a summary I would say it helped to put all what I had learnt in the Catholic, Presbyterian & Baptist School into perspective and into practice.
A lot of people criticize others when they say they are born again and sometimes the newly born again Christians are taken aback when asked what they mean by they are born again.
I will share what I learnt from LCI New Believers School and once I understood salvation I was baptized with water (immersion) and the Holy Spirit (speaking in tongues ) .
Being born again simply implies that you understand what salvation is all about , why , when and how.
I think this is the part where you will need your Bible ,a pen , and a highlighter… I will like to explain this backed by scriptures as I am taught by my Father, Bishop Dag Heward Mills.

In Romans 3:23 we learn that we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and Psalm 51:1 gives us a deep understanding of how we came into contact with sin
‘Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.’

We deserve to be punished and we shall be punished if we continue to hold the truth in unrighteousness.The wages of sin is death – Romans 6:23.

No one is judging you or me but our Father in Heaven knows it all .Look into Romans 1:18 -32 and be honest to yourself, are you for God or against God?
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

The conclusion is we are all sinners but because of the Love which God had for his beautiful creation mankind, He sent His only Son that whosoever believe that in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life – John 3:16.

A Scripture that most of us know by heart and were taught right from Sunday School. The Verse 17 of this Scripture is usually left out, but amazingly it reiterates God’s intention towards us ” For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
Usually, we condemn ourselves for the wrong things we have done , the goodnews is that Jesus did came for us sinners , for us to turn away from sin and be saved.

We become born again when believe that Jesus died , resurrected for the forgiveness of our sins (Hebrews 9:22) and receiving him as our personal savior which is clearly enacted in John 1:12
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the
sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”

Being Born Again is fulfillment of the Bible in Romans 10:9,10
” 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

* After this confession you have become a new creation 2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are
passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
* All your sins past, present and future are remitted, I am not the one saying so it is what the Bible tells us in Hebrews 9:12 and I love the way The Message Bible puts it “He also bypassed the sacrifices consisting of goat and calf blood, instead using his own blood as the price to set us free once and for all.”
* You are now a son or daughter of God – John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
* You have eternal life – John 5:24 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

The Big Question is who then is Born Again?
A Born Again Christian is someone who has invited Jesus Christ into his life and is determined to live a life controlled by the Bible(Word) and the Holy Spirit.

Do you Know Jesus as your Lord and Personal Savior?
If you don’t then now is the time to turn to Jesus wherever you are and say the sinner’s prayer to God not to man:
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
