MANY HAVE REDUCED CHRISTIANITY TO MATERIAL POSSESSIONS. THEY DON’T KNOW WHY THEY ARE CHILDREN OF GOD.
STOP LIVING FOR THINGS! START LIVING FOR GOD!
IF YOU ARE NOT DEDICATED, YOU WILL BE FRUSTRATED AND WHERE DEDICATION STOPS, THAT’S WHERE DISTINCTION STOPS.
WHERE YOU PLACE GOD IN YOUR HEART WILL DETERMINE WHERE GOD WILL PLACE YOU ON THE EARTH.
SOWING YOUR LIFE TO GOD AND TO HIS CAUSE ON THE EARTH IS THE GREATEST.
IT IS DEDICATION THAT MAKES CHRISTIANITY TO BE FRUITFUL.
LIFE ON EARTH IS OF NO MEANING IF YOU ARE NOT LIVING IT FOR CHRIST.
DEDICATION IS A UNIVERSAL DEMAND FOR THE MAKING OF STARS IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
CONSISTENCY IS THE BEAUTY OF CHRISTIANITY.
I DECREE FROM MY HEART THAT IN THIS MONTH OF OCTOBER, NOTHING WILL STOP YOUR CELEBRATION IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
-Pastor David Ibiyeomie on ‘DEDICATION, SECRET TO FRUITFUL CHRISTIANITY’ Praise For Abundance Salvation Ministries – Home of Success 1st October 2023 Second Service || PART A
-I decree, this month shall be your best month! In the month of October, as I celebrate you will celebrate. I speak as a Prophet and I decree that whatever God will do in my life this month, may He do greater in your life.
Saul found himself in the midst of the Prophets and he began to prophesy, I decree from my heart that in this month of October, nothing will stop your celebration in the name of Jesus. Whatever you want in life that is in line with God’s Word before 21st of this month, you will have delivery of it. As I open my mouth to say it and you say: ‘Amen’, it is yours in the name of Jesus!
How many of you know that Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday is fasting? We are fasting in the whole of Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and then we have Week Of Spiritual Empowerment, we do it once every month. Don’t forget, Tuesday is Church at home and Wednesday, Thursday is Church in the Temple.
The message this morning is: ‘DEDICATION, SECRET TO FRUITFUL CHRISTIANITY‘.
Life is a seed! When it is used for what it was created, it will yield fruits. God, throughout Scriptures referred to men as seed: ‘The seed of Abraham, the seed of This’. John 12:24. When your life is sown as a seed, then your destiny begins to flourish, you will begin to bear fruits.
-I see you bear fruits in the name of Jesus!
Life on earth is of no meaning if you are not living it for Christ. Until you have an understanding of why God created you and why you are a Christian, life can be an adventure without direction. Many have reduced Christianity to mean just material possessions.
Many don’t know why they are children of God, all they ask for is: ‘Oh God! Give me butter. Oh God! Give me this’. They mean that the reason why they become born again is just to have material things. Yes, God wants to bless you but that should not be your primary reason for serving God.
Declarations: Stop living for things, start living for God!
I will stop living for things, I will start living for God.
Please don’t reduce Christianity to possession of material things alone, allow things to be things and allow God to be God.
Declarations: I will make my life a seed to God.
Sowing your life to God and to His cause on the earth is the greatest. John 12:24. So it is dedication that makes Christianity to be fruitful. John 12:25-26.
-May God honour someone who says ‘Amen’.
Dedication is to be dead to self and alive to God. To be dead to self is to be dedicated. If you are not dedicated you will be frustrated and where dedication stops that’s where distinction stops. Where you place God in your heart will determine where God will place you on the earth. God must be Lord of all or not at all. Hear me people of God, dedication is a universal demand for the making of stars in the Kingdom of God.
Every star in the Kingdom of God has dedication at his root. It is impossible to emerge a star in the Kingdom of God without embracing the law of dedication.
To be dedicated to God is to give off something for the Kingdom of God’s sake, it is to surrender totally to God. It is to deny yourself of earthly pleasures for the sake of Heavenly gain, it is to be dead to self and alive to God; it is the secret behind fruitful Christianity.
Hear this and hear me well, consistency is the beauty of Christianity. The problem with people is inconsistency, they are not consistent with God. One leg today they are in Church, the next day they are not in Church. One day they have problem they are looking for God, the next day they are not looking for God.
Dedication is not a once and for all lifestyle but once and again lifestyle. Now, you know why you will be dedicated. That you have been dedicated for forty years is not enough, ‘Oh! I have been serving God since I was SU is not enough! I’ve been going to Church since my small child is not enough’. There was a young man called Uzziah in 2 Chronicles 26, this young man at the age of 16 was appointed king over Israel. Uzziah reigned for 52 years yet he missed it, he was 16 when he began to rule. He ruled for 52 years! One day it got into his head and he went to the altar to misbehave, he died a leper.
-No one will die a leper.
That you have been in the Lord for 70 years does not guarantee that you will make Heaven. He says: ‘He that endures to the end’ not ‘he that starts’. Matthew 24:13.
In a race, they don’t give medal to a man who is even one step to the tape, they will not give you if you fall. You must finish it, is that true? If this is the tape and you fall here, they will not give you medal, it is those who finish they give medals.
Declarations: I will finish well. Anything that will make me not to enter Heaven, Almighty God, take it off!
Destroy it in my life! I must make Heaven in the name of Jesus!
That you are 60 years old, 70 years old, 80 years old does not mean you should stop serving God. Dedication is a lifetime adventure, it is living for God all your life. Psalms 92:13-15. That means if you are permanent with God, no dry season till your time on earth is over. How planted you are determines how you will flourish in the Kingdom of God.
-May you flourish from today!
