HOMECELL TEACHING GUIDE – WEEK 9 OF 52
25 FEB – 4 MAR 2018
SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: PSALM 115:1-8

Shalom family, the Grand Finale (closing of our 40 days fast) went very well on Friday night.  On Saturday, we had a glorious time in the presence of God.  Papa prayed for six Bishops and one General, many new Pastors and Ministers, as well as the sons of Pastor Alph Lukau, who lead their own churches both inside and outside SA.  For this we give God all the glory.  

The Man of God said, “The above scripture begins with prayer.”  Any child of God who is going through any kind of trouble should align with this scripture. The Psalmist was having a dialogue with God, and he was speaking directly to God.  Family, God listens and answers those who pray to Him.  The bible says “call on me, and I will answer.”

In this scripture, the Psalmist expressed what was deep inside him.  The reason why he wanted to have what he was asking for was not so that he could fulfil the desires of his flesh.  He sought to glorify God just like John the Baptist who decreased so that God could increase.  Beloved, please note that you and God cannot increase together, unless you commit to decrease, God will not increase in your life.  Here the Psamist said, “Not unto us” (meaning that it’s not for us, but for your glory).  Jesus says, you pray and do not receive because you pray wrongly.  By this He was referring to the motive behind our prayer, e.g. Lord give me a car, house, etc, so that the world may speak about you through me.  This man is trying to re-align everything inside and outside.

In verse 2 the psalmist says, “Why do the nations say, where is their God?”  The world will question your God concerning your situation if you do not win.  The reason he wanted God to manifest His glory is for God’s name.  “Lord not unto us, but unto your name.”  God is about to do something in your life that the world will say surely his God is alive.  The man said, this matter is bigger than me.  Lord if you will heal me; let it not be because I want to feel special, but do it for your glory.  Your enemies are checking if God will open a way and pull you out of that situation.  If God does not rescue you, they are ready to throw a party over your matter.  Lord, do not allow them to rejoice over my case. Child of God, you have been on this position for too long and the world is looking at you, saying, he is going nowhere.  SURPRISE, SURPRISE!!! God is about to shut the mouth of your mockers.  They will see your God.  It will be clear that God is on your side.  The entire Kingdom of God will suffer if you die with sickness.  God has sent our Man of God (Pst Alph Lukau) to rectify situations like this.

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego knew who they are in God.  They said, “Our God is able to deliver us from your hand.”  God is faithful beloved; he is able to deliver you today.  It cannot continue like this.  There is a turnaround miracle coming your way in the next seven days.  Moses was sent to Pharaoh with the word.  IT SHALL NOT CARRY ON LIKE THIS in Jesus Name.  It shall be clear from now; there will be no doubt that your God is seated in heaven with all power in his hand.  All power belongs to him and nothing is too hard for him.  This word is for the one who has no job, the one who has no child or the one with confusion and enslaved in poverty, etc.  It shall be known that He alone is God, and besides Him, there is no other God.  He is Elkanah.  God says, you have suffered / cried enough, they have messed up your name and fight you for no reason.  They stand against you for no course.  This situation will not carry on like this.  I say, God is opening a new door; this is your season of glory, victory, and overflowing miracles.  God is about to lift you up.

Show up oh God, arise oh God, let your enemies be scattered. Victory, salvation, favour and deliverance are coming in Jesus’ name.  God is about to do something very big.  You will no longer have to open a door.  God is putting spiritual sensors, as you approach it, it will open wide.  The Lord is rectifying every wrong in your life.  Whatever they have done against you, God says “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.”  The whole world will know that you serve the true God.
