Take up assignments in church 

TAKE UP ASSIGNMENTS IN CHURCH 

ROMANS 12:4-8  

 
As we round off this series on church membership, I want to leave you with a powerful charge on Assignments. You should constantly ask yourself, WHO AM I? WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO BUILD UP HERE? What can you do to build the vision God has given your church? What more can you do to enhance the labour of your Pastor? 
When you locate your church, you just know this is home. It is that place that the training and assignment to develop your spiritual muscle will be given you. You don’t choose assignments, it is given you and the assignments you embrace is a pathway to the fulfilment of your destiny and calling. When God gives you an assignment, you must hold it tenaciously. 
Once you are a part of a church that has blessed you so much and you have been nourished in the ways of the Lord and in His word, make sure as a builder of God’s house that something of yours is seriously contributing to the building up and advancement of that church. Don’t just sit in church without assignments. Romans 12:4-8 tells us the levels of ministries a member can take up in the church. 
ASSIGNMENT IS THE LIFEBLOOD OF THE CALLING, it gives birth to Grace. Every assignment will release the Grace inside you and lead you to Greater Grace. Assignment and grace power is like the development of muscle power in your muscle. Assignments will feed your call, as assignments are given you, hidden calls will begin to rise up in your life.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive grace to follow through the process you have lined up for me in my church. Make me into what you want me to be in. Jesus’ name. Amen.

Attitudes to disallow as a church member 3

ATTITUDES TO DISALLOW AS A CHURCH MEMBER (3) 

2 CORINTHIANS 10:12, PHILIPPIANS 2:3-4, EPHESIANS 4:4-6
To the final attitude I want you to avoid and disallow if you see in another person.
COMPETITION AND COMPARISON
Competition and comparison in the local church can make the glory cloud to lift off. If two choristers are to lead the solo part of the same song and they are competing, the Holy Spirit will not descend upon God’s people because of the spirit of competition that those two choristers are operating under. 
Don’t try to be like another person; celebrate your uniqueness in Christ. Don’t give room to competition. Love the way that God has made you because you are wonderfully and fearfully made. I remember a woman who heard the testimony another woman was sharing and at the end of the testimony, the only thing the woman seated beside me could say was “yes, I’m older than her.” Miriam and Aaron were older than Moses but God didn’t choose them to lead His people.
People who are always looking for a way to show they are superior to others always remove themselves from what God is doing, instead of teaming up with His purpose. God operates in the spirit of unity. We must be one at heart. Once there is comparison and competition in the midst of God’s people, the fullness of God’s operation will never be experienced there. If 15 people gather together in a church and three are against each other, they will not have the best, it is better for all those who are in unity to go and pray separately. 
Avoid these three negative attitudes and your church membership will take a major boost.
 

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for coming through Your Word, I receive grace to live correctly among the brethren in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Attitudes to disallow as a church member 2

ATTITUDES TO DISALLOW AS A CHURCH MEMBER (2) 

PROVERBS 16:28, 1 PETER 2:1

 
Yesterday I showed you the danger of getting yourself into telling lies against the man of God- as an attitude you need to run away from. I will continue today by showing you another negative attitude to disallow.
2. GOSSIP, SLANDER AND TALE BEARING
Don’t get yourself involved in gossip, slander and tale bearing against the church or the leadership. It’s not normal- it is lending your mouth and your vessel as a tool to the devil. Don’t join group of gossips and don’t yield your vessel as a medium to spread news, both true and untrue. Watch the discussions you are engaged in.
There is nothing that destroys unity among the brethren faster than gossip, slander and tale bearing. Gossips keep adding negativity to false stories as it moves from mouth to mouth; and it is usually born out of envy. This kind of situations makes brethren not to fellowship freely
To prevent this in your church, whenever anyone brings the story of a leader or a church member to you, hold the tale bearer by the hand and take the fellow to the individual she came to speak about and tell him/her to repeat the story. If he/she cannot repeat the whole story in the presence of the person concerned, you have just found someone who is destroying the work of God in your church. The Bible says in Romans 16:17 “mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” Mark them and avoid them.
 

PRAYER: Lord, I repent of every way I have fallen short of this in the time past, I yield my member afresh to the building of the church in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Attitudes to disallow as a church member 1

ATTITUDES TO DISALLOW AS A  CHURCH MEMBER (1).

1 TIMOTHY 3:15; PSALMS 31:18&20 ; 2 KINGS 5:22-27.
 Regardless of the size of your church, and your role in that church, never allow these attitudes in your life because you will be pulling down the work of God if you imbibe these attitudes.
1.TELLING LIES AGAINST MEN OF GOD 
If you have ever lied against a man of God, you are not a free person. You are in bondage because you are a tool in the hand of the enemy and he will seek to use you for greater damage in the future before he destroys you. The only remedy is to swallow your pride, go back to where you lied against the pastor. One of the worst things a person can do is to lie against a man of God.
We have seen ladies who enter a man of God’s office to seduce him and he shouted on her to run her out of the office and she also shouted that he wants to rape me and people came in. The pastor lost honour, and the news went round. The matter is not yet over because Jesus Christ, the Head of the church, has it on record and it is not forgotten. 
If you have been involved in a lie against a man of God, it brings a generational curse. Go back and right the wrong. If you must make an open confession in the church, do it because that is what will cancel the repercussions. When you repent, God will forgive and cleanse you and give you a new beginning.
 
PRAYER: Lord, let me never find myself in a position of lying against your servant- the anointed. Teach me how to comport myself correctly in the church, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

My counselling for Bachelor’s and Spinsters

THE REASON WHY BACHELOR/ SPINSTER ALWAYS REMAIN SINGLE.

Presently most ladies are chatting with their future husbands here on Facebook but they can’t see it.

They are fasting and looking for the ones in Malaysia and United States, they are looking for the ones that have cars while the wise ladies look for stars!

They run from pillar to pole, prophet to native doctors and church to churches in search for higher mystical powers and connection for a life partner while the Lord perfect will husband is right there on their nose.

They spent hours in praying and fasting, jumping from one crusade to another in search of their missing ribs while the perfect Adam is right there for their grab.

# MY COUNSELING TO SPINSTERS.

My sister, God is not wicked or deaf and doesn’t withheld answers to marital prayers because he knew that without a good life partner or marriage Heavenly kingdom will not inhabits more souls and the devil knew and also trembled.

Social media or facebook is a global world which enlarges everyday. I called it the future Church because it’s where the entire Christians hold their daily convention.

Look at your church and tell me who isn’t on facebook?

About 50% has facebook account while you are their crying with swollen eyes awaiting for an Italian man to drop from heaven while the man in his tattered clothes and shoes has been reserved by God as your life partner.

What Happens?

Mysteriously God has remoted either of you to becomes social friends, every day he keep chatting you up while you keep ignoring and ridiculing his chats and you think that God hasn’t answered your prayers.

Please wise up because menu-pause doesn’t have cure and I advice you cultivates the act of humility and cheerfulness if you don’t want to end up as old maid or in wrong marriage.

# TO THE BACHELORS.

Dude, yes I knew you are presently confused due to different shapes, colors and hairstyles of ladies on your friend-list.

In fact, you are perfect in screening the profile pix of ladies (Bro I was once a victim & we knew ourselves), but what have you achieved?

Personally for me…. I once search and look and becomes frustrated and confused because none of these ladies are more beautiful.

I discovered that, the more beautiful you seek, the more deeper you sink because they are just the same. And it’s time wasteful in seeking for beauty.

Hence, I observed that the beauty of a lady is not outward appearance but rather inward attributes.

The degree of her wisdom, knowledge and understanding and crown with life experiences is the vital credit 💳 in having a perfect nurished happy home.

# MY COUNSELING TO BACHELORS.

Looking for a lady that is putting on Gucci bags and Brazilian hair is a disease. Whenever I behold any single lady, am never enticed by her outward look but rather afraid of her inner calcus.

The heart of a lady always scare out the taught of marriage in me because that heart is the warehouse that contains the destruction or construction of your marriage.

The scriptures infer “a wise woman build her home while the foolish tear it down”

This literally means that the act of building a happy marriage filled with joy and happiness doesn’t lay within you but rather in the heart of that lady.

Hence, kindly eschew beauty and start giving attention to that ugly, illiterate and dirty lady on your friend-list.

Continue to chat her up and strike a constructive conversation and keep on praying unto God.

I strongly believe in few weeks, God will opened your eyes to behold one of them as your Eve and when he does…. Go ahead and marry her and stop chasing after beauty.

# CONCLUSIONS.

The major problem in Africa is blindness, anyone can have cars, entice you with intimidating profile pix and still be broke tomorrow.

That he has a car today does not mean he can not sell that car in 5-years time to eat bread..

The point is not marrying a poor person. The point is this; do not let temporal situations form your permanent decision.

Form valuable relationship with anyone who will enhance your vision. The greatest tragedy in life is not death, the greatest tragedy is a life without a purpose.

A life full of contradictions

A LIFE FULL OF CONTRADICTIONS

I have come across different kinds of people in life. I can tell that a great number of people’s lives are full of contradictions. Please don’t get me wrong. What I mean by contradictions may be different from what you think. Please give this write-up rapt attention.

There are people surrounded by opportunities yet their lives do not showcase such opportunities. They are really suffering in the midst of plenty. The story of a man in the book of Acts chapter three, typifies this scenario. Let’s read: Acts 3:2 “And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered the temple …”(NKJV)

Dear reader, when you give thought to the description of the temple gate described in this passage, you’ll agree with me that, it surely was an architectural masterpiece – a beautiful sight to behold. But the man at this beautiful entrance could not even walk. He was born lame. He could not move about. He was always carried to the gate. And worst all, he had no job. He could only beg for alms to eat. In summary, his life was not beautiful yet he was at the Beautiful Gate.

Many people’s lives are like this. They have opportunities all around them. They have relatives in high positions; and they have net worth individuals who can give them any amount of money they need. They can boast of people who are okay but their lives are very much the opposite – a far cry from the level they should be operating.

Please read on.

What could be responsible for this? Many things!

One, when a person is confused, shy, nervous or does not know what to ask for i.e when purpose is not known, he may not get help from those who should assist him. This behavioural defect may also stem out of inferiority complex.

Two, when supposed helper is waiting for you to speak out but you are not voicing out, desired help may just be hovering around and may never get to you. Not all helpers believe in asking a question like: “How do you want me to help you?” Some may ask while some others will never ask. Some helpers may be giving you money to feed but may be waiting for you to speak out first on the specific thing they should do to help your life.

Three, when you are lazy, your supposed helpers may be put off by your attitude. Four, when a person tells lies or lives above his means or is considered a potential danger and cannot be trusted; his supposed helpers may not want to get into trouble. So, they may be avoiding him instead of helping him.

Five, when there are dirty rumours or image denting news about a person, it takes the grace of God to get a person who will be willing to help, but with prayer, God will lead people to ignore the rumours and render help. Dispelling image denting news demands a great deal of prayer. This is because, some rumours may be milled in the spirit realm and not in the physical, yet people will be made to believe such rumours.

Six, when there’s external influence, help may be blocked. Please don’t joke with this sixth point. It is the major problem many people are going through today. It may manifest in diverse of ways. Domestic, environmental or ancestral spiritual powers may stop your helpers even if they are desirous of helping you. It is because of this form of attack that the Bible says in Isaiah 45:2 “I will go ahead of you and make the crooked places straight. I will break in pieces the gate of brass and cut in sunder the bars of iron”

These spiritual powers may also use cobwebs. They may use dreams of demotion or may assign spirit of rejection. They can also put an evil mark on their victim to advertise him for rejection and helplessness. They can sponsor attacks from outside i.e manipulate any spiritual agent or anyone of double spiritual personality or any weak vessel like witches or familiar spirit to attack you. You may be complaining about an old witch in your neighborhood that attacks you in your dreams every time, whereas, the powers in your family are the ones using the neighborhood witch against you.

They may also manipulate you to rent a demonic house (apartment) where there will be slow progress or no progress at all. Not every place can harbour testimonies. Helpers may not remember you when you reside in certain places. Some places are desolate or governed by evil spirits. Miracles don’t happen in such places. They may place embargo on your progress. They may feed you with demonic food in your dreams or may have sex with you in your dreams or turn themselves to spiritual robbers in your dreams, just to abort your testimonies.

They may package dreams of demotion or turn themselves to spiritual midnight barbers that shave human hair or cut/scrap a small portion of the hair on the head in the dream, just to snatch away your glory.

They can operate through evil dedication or through childhood dedication and can use placenta manipulation to control or bewitch you to do wrong things and lose the help capable of changing your story. Whenever any of these is present in your life, helpers can hardly locate you.

Seven, when you refuse to work for God either on full time or part time basis, you may be in the midst of plenty or may be close to those who matter and still lack necessary help in life. Engaging in the service of God may be in the area of evangelism, choir, Sunday school teaching, ushering, counselling, children teaching, Pastoring etc.

The chief reason most people who have helpers are not being helped is sin. If you are committing sin, God will not lead your helpers to help you. Remember, God Himself is your helper. He merely operates through people. So, if He’s not pleased with your way of life, He will not lead people to assist you. The Bible asks a question and also gave the answer. “Shall we continue in sin and ask that the grace of God should abound? God forbids!” Sin puts a barricade between you and your helpers. The Bible says ‘The hand of the Lord is not too short that it can not save neither are His ears too deep that He cannot hear but our sin has separated us from His love.’

When people who should help you are not forthcoming with the help desired from them, the solution is prayer. Give yourself to prayer. Nothing defies prayer except that which is beyond the control of God. The moment you can pray, you are 50% ahead of your enemies; but if sin is in your life, no matter how you pray, you cannot defeat the enemy out there. For this reason, the Bible, in the book of 2nd Chronicles 7:14 says “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” ‘Heal their land’ in this verse means turning your situation around for good.

When you avoid sin, door of favour will open onto you. God will surely answer whichever prayer you offer to Him in the name of Jesus. Praying in the name of Jesus is the first condition that must be met if truly you need an answer. This is why the Bible says “Whatever you ask the Father in my name, He shall give thee”

Beloved reader, have you given your life to Jesus? Do you know that it is His name that unpleasant situations bow to? If you are willing to give your life to Jesus Christ now, please make this short confession: “Lord Jesus, it is only in Your name that every knee shall bow, because Your name is above dominion, above might, above powers, above principality, above every thing named in this age or in the world to come. Your name is above the situation I am going through. That is why I surrender my life to You today. Be my personal Lord and saviour. It is written that, the entrance of Your word giveth light and giveth understanding. Father, illuminate my life to know the areas I’ve been missing my helpers. Help me to live a new life that is in You so that I may reign with You at Your second coming. Thank You for answering my prayer in Jesus name, Amen.”

Please note that, giving your life to Jesus does not end with making this confession. You must start attending a church from now on. While we will not recommend a particular church, may the Holy Spirit lead you to choose a church where the word of God is preached undiluted. May God bless you as you so. Every week, we mail online tracts to our numerous readers. If you want to be receiving our tracts weekly, please make a request to: boazolaosebikan@gmail.com or send a friend request on Facebook to: Tel. +2348034967474.

Please say these prayers:

1. You arrow of confusion, fired into my life to make me not to know what to ask for from my supposed helpers, jump out of me and never you return in Jesus name.

2. Holy Spirit! Speak through me on what I should ask for, whenever I appear before my helpers, in Jesus name.

3. It is written, ‘God has not given me the spirit of fear but of love, of joy and sound mind.’ Therefore, every spirit of fear; of nervousness and of inferiority complex, programmed into my life, I command you to flee, in Jesus name.

4. Holy Spirit! Make me to know every wrong attitude that will not permit your stay in my life, in Jesus name.

5. O God, purge me of every wrong attitude turning away my helpers, in Jesus.

6. Every embargo placed on the help destined for me, break to pieces, in Jesus name.

7. By the power in the blood of Jesus, I nullify every evil covenant holding me down, blocking me from accessing the right help I need to move forward in life, in Jesus name.

8. Christ has made Himself a curse for me. I am curseless. Therefore, every curse issued to stop the blessings coming my way, be broken in the name of Jesus.

9. Ancestral rope, tying me down to a spot, break in the name of Jesus.

10. O Lord, by your power, smite the anti – breakthrough spirits in my place of abode, in Jesus name.

11. O Lord, in your presence, there’s honour and majesty. Cover me by your presence from the powers that belittle me before my helpers and above the powers that make my coat of honour look oversized, in Jesus name.

12. Holy Spirit! Disgrace every power bringing up thought of substituting my name for another person in the mind of my helpers whenever they are considering me for favour, in Jesus name.

13. Every educational barrier, status barrier, tribal barrier or religious barrier placed in the way of the help coming my way, break to pieces in Jesus name.

THE POWER OF SAYING: “I’M SORRY.”

THE POWER OF *I AM SORRY.* *I am sorry,* a short but mighty sentence! If you wish to live long, don’t joke with this short sentence, *I am sorry.* Do you know how many people who had gone to early grave because they neglected the therapeutic power of *I am sorry.* Single sorry can stop a war, n prevents millions of men, women including children from dying! Most of the troubles in most homes are heightened because wives are too big to say *I am sorry* to their husbands and you can trust the ego of husbands in saying same to their wives. Quarrel lingers between friends because no party wants to say *I am sorry.* Each says or asks, why should I be the first to say *I am sorry?* He or she would beat his or her chest and utter the ego phrase, *a whole me!* Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the part of the world where saying *I am sorry* is a hard nut to crack while curses are easily unleashed. Welcome to the part of the world where people refer to a person who says *I am sorry* in a midst of a rift as a *weaker sex*: one who is not man enough; one who is foolish. Welcome to Africa where saying *I am sorry* is tougher than forcing a donkey to pass through a needle hole. All of us are victims of this discussion. We have lost valuable assets, money and even lives because of this cheap and affordable sentence *I am sorry.* It simply cost only a breath of speech. Have you ever wondered why domestic violence is less pronounced in the western world? It is simply because they understand the efficacy of *I am sorry.* Husbands say it to their wives and even children whenever they err, wives and children do the same and life goes on fine. Friends, this is simply a piece to encourage us to cultivate a habit of saying *I am sorry.* It is difficult but readily affordable. Learn how to say *I AM SORRY* even if you are right. If this message offends you in one way or the other, *I am sorry* My apologies. 👍👍👍👍👍
