TO EVERY CHILD OF GOD WHO WILL BELIEVE IT, THIS WILL BE YOUR MONTH OF MIRACLES!
YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS A GOD OF FAITH
EVERYTHING IN OUR CHRISTIAN RACE IS ALL ABOUT FAITH
WE ARE CALLED BELIEVERS BECAUSE WE HAVE FAITH
YOU CAN’T SAY YOU ARE HOLY IF YOU DON’T HAVE FAITH BECAUSE WHATEVER IS NOT OF FAITH IS SIN
BREAD IS BREAD AND WINE IS WINE BUT WHEN THE GOD OF FAITH SPEAKS, THE INCREDIBLE BEGINS TO HAPPEN
IT IS BREAD MADE OF FLOUR AND ORDINARY WINE BUT COME TO THE COMMUNION TABLE BY FAITH!
TESTIMONY OF THE HEALING OF A HIGH CHIEF OF ONDO TOWN BY FAITH
IF THE SPIRIT THAT RAISED JESUS CHRIST FROM THE DEAD DWELLS IN YOU, THE SAME SPIRIT WILL QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODIES
THE FIRST STEP TO SHOWING GOD THAT YOU ARE A BELIEVER IS THAT YOU SURRENDER YOUR LIFE TO HIM
– Pastor E. A. Adeboye on “UNDERSTANDING THE GOD OF WONDERS” at RCCG 2023 June Holy Communion Service || 1st June, 2023
Let someone shout halleluyah!
Our theme for this month is, “UNDERSTANDING THE GOD OF WONDERS.” Tonight as we come together for Holy Communion we will want to take a look at John 6:53-54. One of the things you need to understand about God is that he is a God of faith. When we are talking about God, God is a God of faith. Hebrews 11:3. The Bible calls Jesus Christ in Hebrews 12:2, “the author and finisher of our faith.” So everything we are talking about in our Christian race is all about faith. Serving is by faith, that we are going to finish well is by faith, that by his stripes we were healed is by faith, that our God shall supply all our needs if by faith, that our tomorrow will be alright is by faith, that we are more than conquerors through him that loved us is by faith, that Satan is under our feet is by faith, that we can do all things through Christ is by faith.
Faith is so important in our Christian life that another Word for a Christian is a Believer. I am sure you know a believer means one who has faith, who believes. Hebrews 11:6; Romans 14:23. You can’t even say you are holy if you don’t have faith because whatever is not of faith is sin. So you can imagine how glad Jesus was in Matthew 8:5-13 when the centurion came to him for healing of his servant who wasn’t even present.
– In the name of Jesus Christ I speak a Word to you tonight, this will be your month of miracles!
2 Kings 4:1-7. The woman borrowed many vessels and began to pour out the oil because she believed that the man of God has spoken and that therefore when she begins to pour out the oil, the oil will begin to flow. She believed and she got her miracle and got much more. She was able to pay all her debts in one day and had enough to live on for the rest of her life because she had faith.
– To every man, woman, child of God who will believe it, this will be your month of miracles!
It was faith that finally got Naaman his miracle. 2 Kings 5:1-14. The Bible says Naaman was angry; he was right to be angry because what the Man of God had said (to human mind) was foolishness. But when he finally said, “Okay, let’s wait and see,” he demonstrated faith by dipping – not 5, 6 times but 7. This is because when he dipped the 6th time, he was still a leper. But when he dipped himself the 7th time, faith jumped into action and he came out of the River with the skin of a brand new baby.
– For everyone who will believe, in the name that is above every other name, this will be your month of miracles!
So when Jesus said, “eat my body, drink my blood,” that doesn’t make sense. Eat your body? We are not cannibals. Drink your blood? We are not witches. It didn’t make sense even when he was still on Earth and to make the matter even more complicated, he took bread, broke it and said, “this is my body.” Your body? Church Gist. He took wine and said, “hey, drink; this is my blood.” “Ahn ahn! We are not crazy; bread is bread. Wine is wine.” But when the God of faith speaks, when the Almighty, the God of wonders speaks, the incredible begins to happen.
It says when you eat my body and drink my blood, then you have my life in you. Church Gist. The Bible says, “if the Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead dwells in you, the same Spirit will quicken your mortal bodies.”
– I have faith to believe that after tonight’s Holy Communion Service, the life of the Almighty God himself will penetrate through into your bodies!
I have told you the story before: a high Chief of Ondo town became paralyzed from waist downwards. But because he was a very rich man, they took him to the best hospital in London. They tried everything, nothing happened. One day, the Chief Surgeon in the hospital came to him with a very long, sharp needle in his hand and said, “Chief look at me.” Church Gist. Chief was lying helplessly on the bed; and he drove the needle through his thigh – all the way through. He asked the Chief, “do you feel anything?” The Chief said no. He said, Chief go home. Stop wasting your money here. There’s nothing anybody can do for you. You will never walk again.” They brought the chief home and the Chief had one small girl living in the house who said to the old man, “if only you can get to Redemption Camp, there’s a man of God there, he will pray for you and you will walk again. Church Gist. They brought the old man who was fairly heavy in size and heavier because the 2 legs were paralyzed. It took 4 strong men to carry him into my living room and I shared with him Romans 8:11. I asked him if he will give his life to Christ and become a believer. He surrendered his life to Jesus, we prayed a simple prayer, they carried him in? He walked out! By faith!
I want you to come to the table tonight with your faith at the highest point possible because tonight you are not going to eat an ordinary bread, you are not going to drink an ordinary wine. Yes, it is bread made of flour and the wine
itself? Ordinary wine – no alcohol in it. Church Gist. But by faith, because Jesus said, this is my body, this is my blood, the same faith with which God created the Heaven and the Earth, is going to be operative tonight and someone will leave here shouting for joy.
That is for believers. Anyone who is not born again is not a believer. You have to be a believer to believe that the blood that Jesus shed at Calvary is still available to wash away your sins. Church Gist. The first step to showing God that you are a Believer is that you surrender your life to him.
