TOPIC: The Challenge

FIRE SCRIPTURE
Psalm 31:17-18; 1 Sam. 2:9; Psalm 25:2

MEMORY VERSE
Romans 10:11 “For the scripture saith, whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.”

OUTLINE
The world needs to experience the raw power of God. We need believers who respond when any challenge is thrown at them. A certain minister was sent to a town in the West African coastal region. When he got there, he decided to visit the chief priest whom he learnt was the one causing trouble in the place.

The chief priest said, “My dear pastor, I will demonstrate something to you now.” He picked a piece of maize and placed it on his palm and instantly the maize started to grow on his palm. The pastor watched him and was very scared. The chief then asked him if his God could do that. He did not have an answer; and he quickly looked for an excuse and ran back to Nigeria. Later, another minister was posted to the same place.

He also went to the chief priest, who began to demonstrate his demonic power again. He put the maize on his palm and it started to grow, as usual. The brother watched: And, the priest said, “Can your God do this?” The brother said, “No. My God does not waste time on things like this, but I will show you a little bit of what my God can do. He then opened his mouth and said, “You satanic maize, be roasted, in the name of Jesus.” And the chief priest cried out, “My hand, my hand.”

After the maize had been roasted, the fire began to burn his hand. The brother had to pray for his hand to heal. That was a troublemaker. For Christians to make an impact on the nation or city where they are, they must become Christ-consumed and Holy Spirit-filled like Phillip. We must become evangelists with faith to cast out evil spirits and pray for the salvation and healing of others. Don’t stay where you were last year.

Some people came to services early, before they were blessed with cars. But as soon as they have cars, they come late to church and give all kinds of excuses for their lateness. If it was not the carburettor of their car that was faulty, they would say that it was because their drivers who came late. It was as if they were accusing God, for their breakthrough.

Where do we go from here? Pompous satanic agents must be silenced. The wicked must be ashamed. And, only the spiritual troublemakers can make that happen. Are you ready for the challenge?

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE
The truth is that a wrong man in a right place and the right man in the wrong place are birds of the same feather.

PROPHETIC WORD
Any power that has been stealing from you, shall be exposed, in Jesus’ name.

HYMN – When peace, like a river

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Refrain:
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh trump of the angel! Oh voice of the Lord!
Blessèd hope, blessèd rest of my soul!
