SCRIPTURE REFERENCE:ACTS 3:6-9,ACTS 4:29-31
Shalom family; the God of our father (Pst Alph Lukau) did it again last Sunday. As usual, the Lord worked through our Man of God confirming what he said by many miraculous signs. The accurate prophesies were given, as the chains the enemy had bound the children of God with for many years were broken, deliverance, healing and restoration took place. We give God all the glory, he is indeed faithful, even when we are not faithful.
Pastor Alph shared the Word of God on the above scriptures. The Man of God said this is the story of the disciples of Jesus Christ who had just become apostles, this happened after our Lord Jesus Christ was taken. On that day, two disciples of Jesus Christ (Peter and John) were going to the temple to pray, they met a lame man who was carried to the temple gate called beautiful, where he was put every day to beg. Peter said “silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” The healing miracle took place. Family, irrespective of what you are going through at the moment, God can change your story.
The Man who was known to be a beggar was looking at Peter and John, expecting to receive something from them. He may have not known what they had for him, but he just tuned with what they told him, and he received an outstanding miracle that day. The miracle which was visible and everyone spoke about. They had something greater than coins he was expecting. Beloved, nothing will manifest if you do not expect anything. Show me what you expect God to do in your life, and I will show you what will happen in your life. Because he expected his healing, he received it. You too, are about to testify because God is about to do something huge in your life. God says I will not only bless you, but I will turn you into a fountain of blessings. God is about to give you a visible miracle. God is about to do something in your life that will cause the world to talk about you. May God perform healing, financial breakthrough, etc, miracle in your life in Jesus Name.
After the lame man had received the healing miracle, the elders and teachers of the law stood against Peter and John. Anytime you begin to operate under the power of God, you will face persecution. The persecution the church is going through in our days did not start now. People who served God with power were subjected to all kinds of persecution. This is the time to put on the full armor of God because it is time to fight. I pray that God may train your hands for war, and your fingers for battle. But before you start fighting, you need to position yourself well in the spiritual realm so that you can win. The reason the enemy is attacking the church is because he is afraid of the gathering of the saints who are saved by the grace. He knows that if they call on the Name of Jesus, fire will come down. This is the reason the enemy wants to destroy the church.
Below, are the strategies the devil uses against the church of Jesus Christ:
1.Infiltration: Satan knows that in order to destroy the church of Christ, he must operate from within. May the Lord expose them. You must know who is with you, the devil can destroy you through people and God can bless you through the people. Do not embrace everybody.
2.The devil uses the governing system against the church and the authorities. When they wanted to destroy Daniel, they used the law. All of us must fight, the battle cannot only be won from the pulpit.
3.The devil uses our own weaknesses against us. He uses our human shortfalls to turn one against another. E.g. Pastors fighting against each other over members.
4.The devil takes advantage of our ignorance on critical matters. This discourages us from within. What you do not know will kill you. What you know empowers you. Always strive to grow in knowledge.
5.The devil is using deception. He is using lies against us. They called Jesus Christ a sinner. They used to say that Jesus Christ is a friend of the sinners. He uses gossips to destroy the church.
AMI, we are a movement, we are a church of power and a movement of the love of God. We know who we are. God bless you.
