THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE : FRIDAY, 29TH JANUARY, 2016.

THEME: DISCERNING THE TIME

TEXT: 2Ttmothy 3:1
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

MEMORY VERSE: Matthew 24:3-10.

MESSAGE:
Brethren, we all should be vigilant as events heralding the coming of the Lord unfold. Our Master Jesus Christ did not leave us guessing when He will return to the earth to take us home. He gave us the sign post or early warning signs.

The things happening in the world today should alarm all believers. As our opening text says, what we witness around us today shows that the Lord is really by the corner. Since recorded history, people have not been so materialistic, covetous, selfish, lovers of pleasure, rebellious and destructive than in this century.

The goal of most people these days is to grab money at all cost, dress to kill and to be seen in riotous parties and 'enjoy' life to the fullest. The hustle and bustle in our cities these days is all about running after money, fame, position and has nothing to do with godliness.

What have human beings not done in this century? They have challenged God and trampled upon the cross of Jesus Christ. If indeed you are saved, you will marvel at what comes out of the mouth of people, their dressing and goals will almost make you throw up.
Where these things are put together, you can actually conclude that this present world has expired and will soon collapse into eternity. As a Chosen; do not fall prey to the enemy. He has perfected plans to lead many people astray through entertainment and otherworldly evil attractions.
In our memory verse, the Lord has given us the signs of His coming and the signs are here with us, so cling to Him in holiness while waiting for His arrival.

PRAYER POINTS:
Pray for the grace not to be deceived.
Ask God to help you to remain faithful till the end.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior. I surrender my life to you. Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!

THEME: DO NOT BE DOUBLE MINDED

TEXT: James 1:8
8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

MEMORY VERSE: Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. Mark 9:23

MESSAGE:
Many people get discouraged and crash out of the heavenly race because of delayed expectations and other challenging life experiences. This group of people tries to make God a liar to their own peril. Once you are satisfied that your relationship with God is right, take whatever comes your way and commit everything to His hands. The bible says in the book of 1 Corthinans 15:19 "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

Brethren, we did not give our lives to Jesus to get good jobs, marry, have children, build houses, or buy good cars. We gave our lives to Him because we love Him and want to serve Him so that at last, we shall be in heaven. If you became a believer because of earthly possessions, you will deny the Lord if you get them.

However the Lord has promised to take care of us, so we should go about working for Him, pleasing Him and heap our troubles at the foot of the cross and believe the promises of God.

Maybe you have no job, no child, no house or experience disappointments, go to the scripture and claim the promises of God without any iota of doubt whether it will work or not. When doubt sets in, the devil can take you out of the church, where there is no protection and destroy you.

A double minded man cannot please God and cannot prosper in spiritual matters, so believe the word of God. In our memory verse Jesus says to us that all things are possible if we can only believe without wavering. Will you believe God today?

PRAYER POINTS:
Repent of all unbelief.

Ask God to strengthen your faith.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: MONDAY, 25TH JANUARY, 2016.

THEME: BE OF A QUIET SPIRIT

TEXT: James 1 : 19
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let everyman be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

 MEMORY VERSE: In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise. Proverbs 10:19

MESSAGE:
No one can operate outside the commandment of God and remains a Christian but a rebel who is waiting for the judgment of God.

Believers are not of the world and cannot behave like the worldly people. By accepting Jesus, a genuine believer has handed his or her life to Him without attempting to take it back.

Our saviour Jesus Christ led a perfect example of how His followers should conduct themselves. The Lord demands that we be sober and vigilant round the clock to avoid being found wanting when He beckons.

It is therefore worthy of note that a true believer should avoid talkativeness or being in the midst of unruly or rowdy people who have no business with the things of the kingdom. Our opening text counsels us to be slow to speak.
This means that we should only talk when it is necessary and not like others who talk anyhow for the simple reason that they have mouth.

We should also avoid arguments of any sort to avoid being dragged into ungodly actions. Being of a quiet spirit also entails following orders without asking questions as well as doing the work of God without murmuring and complaining against your superiors. It also means handling issues with godly wisdom and to the glory of God.

In our memory verse, the Bible says rightly that sin will always be present in the multitude of words. Let us therefore learn to be quiet when others are shouting and hurling missiles through their mouth.

PRAYER POINTS:
Ask God to tame your tongue.

Pray against every spirit of talkativeness.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior. I surrender my life to you. Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!

SUNDAY SERVICE MESSAGE 24/01/2016.



SUNDAY SERVICE MESSAGE AT TLCCRM INT'L HQ, IJESHA, LAGOS, NIGERIA. 24/01/2016.

TOPIC: HE THAT SHALL DWELL ON HIGH - PART 1

TEXT: Isaiah 33:14-17, Psalm 24:3-5; Hebrew 12:14

INTRODUCTION TO MESSAGE
Whoever that desire to make heaven at last, must meet up with the criteria or principles whereby he/she can make it, the reason been that, heaven is holy and the abode of God (Isaiah 6:1-5).
Therefore, we must keep away from all evil or unrighteousness, we must hate evil and all its attraction (Psalm 45:7; Proverb: 1:10). We should endeavour to be pure in every area, we should remember that heaven is a holy place, nobody shall dwell on high or go up there with iniquity (Mathew 7:23; 1st Corinthians: 6:9), all those who want to dwell on high must meet the criteria (Psalm 24:3-5; Psalm 25:4-5). For better insight, we shall consider this message under two sub-sections;

POINT 1: THE QUESTION OF THE HEAVENLY MINDED AND RESPONSE
Many who truly want heaven are always searching and asking question on how they can make it or the criteria involved (Psalm 15:1; Psalm 24:3). The heavenly minded are always praying and searching their lives to ensure that they will make it at last, those who are heavenly minded in the old and new testament were continuously searching, praying and asking questions on how to make it, desiring to have the best place in heaven, and the Lord didn't hesitate to answer their questions or respond to them, he revealed and gave them answer to their questions, because it is what matters to Him most(Psalm 15:1-5; Psalm 24:3-5; Mathew 18:1-4; Mathew 19:17-21).

So, the Lord didn't waste time to respond to the question that matters, we all should know that when we ask anything according to His will, He hears us (1st John 5:14).

POINT 2: THE CONCERN OF THE IGNORANT MULTITUDE, DANGER AND OUR EXPECTED RESPONSE
 In this present day, people who troop to churches are unlike those of old in new and old testament, they are rather concerned about the earthly glory or what to eat and what to drink or the things of this world (Exodus 16:1-3; Exodus 17:1-3; John 6:24-27).

Remember, our programme from "Sorrow to Joy" is at hand, let us take advantage of this opportunity to fulfill part of our goals or visions as we begin to tell everyone that we have a programme come and your sorrows will be turned to joy, let us begin to prepare now for there is no more time. Also, we should not forget our first fruits offering in order to reap this year (Galatians 6:7)

For those who are not yet born again and backsliders, they should repent of their sins, give their lives to Jesus Christ and accept him as their Lord and personal saviour (John 3:3;16; Romans 3:23; Revelation 21:8; 1st Corinthians 6:9-10; Proverb 28:13;1st John 3:8-9;John 14:6; John 10:10; Romans: 10:13).

THEME: BROKENNESS, A NECESSITY.

TEXT: 2 Thessalonians 2:13
13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

MEMORY VERSE: The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalm 34:18

MESSAGE:
Brokenness or sanctification is the second work of grace after salvation. It is a very important experience in our relationship with God. It is preparing and setting ourselves apart for the use of God according to His purpose and design. It is the absence of brokenness that makes many Christians to struggle in their walk with the Lord.

When a Christian is broken, he can hardly hurt a fly, have hot and destructive anger, he or she has no room for retaliation neither can such a person have anything to do with quarreling, fighting or keeping malice and is hardly offended. It should be made clear here that our relationship with Jesus does not stop at accepting Him as our Lord and personal saviour.

It is a relationship that continues daily in the renewal of our mind and allowing the Lord to uproot every Adamic nature of sin in our lives. And so, broken believer allows God to take the center stage in his or her life.
Such a believer does everything to follow peace with all men and is ready to part with anything capable of breeding strife just to allow peace reign.

Are you therefore broken? This is an essential ingredient in our Christian life because without it, the old nature will continue to prevail contrary to the will of God. Our memory verse reminds us that God is always close to the Christian with a broken heart and not the lions, tiger, wolves or other ravenous beasts camouflaging as believers. Therefore endeavour to have this beautiful experience of brokenness and your life will never be the same. Do you get offended easily? Do you want to be begged before you forgive someone? Are you stubborn? If the answer is yes, then you need to be broken.

PRAYER POINTS:
Ask the Lord to give you the experience of brokenness.
Bind every spirit promoting sin in your life.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away.

THEME: WALKING IN THE SPIRIT

TEXT: Galatians 5:16-17
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

MEMORY VERSE: For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Romans 8: 14.

MESSAGE:
Carnality and spirituality cannot walk together because they are eternally irreconcilable. God is a spirit and they that worship Him do so in spirit and truth. Walking in the spirit makes for joy because it is a proof that we are the sons and daughters of God. Walking in the spirit simply means allowing the Holy Spirit and the word of God to drive one's life on daily basis and anywhere.

When you allow the word of God to rule your live in accordance to His will, you are walking in the spirit. It is in this condition that you can hear from God and pray and He answers.

A life in the spirit keeps sin away because spirit of God cannot lead one to evil. And so any Chrtstian who is not led by the spirit of God is laying a baseless claim and should not expect anything from God. This is so because God cares for only His obedient children and is always watchful over their affairs.

No one lives anyhow and expects the Holy Spirit to dwell in him or her let alone leading the person. You must therefore remember that as long as you do what your flesh desires, the spirit of God is absent in your life and you are neither a son nor a daughter.

PRAYER POINTS:
Pray and earnestly desire to walk in the spirit.

Ask God to purge your heart of ungodly desires.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior. I surrender my life to you. Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!

AN ADDRESS BY DEAN OF STUDIES, CHOSEN BIBLE COLLEGE (MORE GRACE BIBLE INSTITUTE)




AN ADDRESS DELIVERED BY THE DEAN OF STUDIES/H.O.D.
MORE GRACE BIBLE INSTITUTE, PAST. CHIDOZIE AMADI ON
THEOCCASION OF THE 10TH GRADUATION/MATRICULATION CEREM ONY OF THE INSTITUTE HELD ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 22, 2016 AT THE LORD'S CHOSEN HQTRS. IJESHA, LAGOS, NIGERIA.
Protocols...........................................

The General Overseer, The Lord's Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministry, Senior Ministers, Heads of Department, other dignitaries, invited guests, brothers and sisters, other protocols observed.

We are here gathered once again this year for the matriculation and convocation ceremony of the pastoral training arm of this great ministry, MGBI.
We owe it to God for his unflinching love, grace and support; spiritual and physical which have enabled us to achieve all that we have been able to achieve since the inception of the institute.

It is like yesterday when we try to recall that it is now ten 10 years since the establishment of the school. We are therefore not only presenting to you another batch of graduands and matriculants, but we are also celebrating A Decade of
Ministerial Excellence to the glory of our great God.

This year's event is quite unique as we would be graduating students from other six campuses outside the Lagos Main Campus. These have all undergone the training and satisfied the requirements for the award of degrees and other certificates.

At this juncture, we would like to express our gratitude to our Daddy in the Lord, The General Overseer for his interest and support to the school. You will agree with me that without his motivation we would not have been able to carry on with the laudable plans and programmes of the institute.

As you can see, our building project has reached an advanced stage and by the grace of God, we believe that the project would be completed before the end of this year and the school relocated to her permanent site. By this mile stone, the years of teaching and learning in rigorous and sometimes uncomfortable conditions would have become a history.

I therefore congratulate you the incoming students as you are in for a great time in the school. While calling on intending candidates to come up and enroll and enjoy the facilities that would be put in place.

Over the years, the institute has remained focused to raising the bar of academic standard of the school. This can be seen in the crop of academic staff that we engage who are well trained to in turn train our students. In so doing, the products of the school can stand shoulder high with their contemporaries from other Bible colleges.

Similarly, a high premium is placed on academic excellence and that explains why we recognize exceptional performances to serve as a morale booster to the students. Therefore, we shall be giving awards to the Overall Best student in each of our campuses- Lagos, Abia, Abuja, Rivers, Imo, Bayelsa and Enugu states.

To our dear graduating students I leave you With these few words found tn the scripture in Isaiah 51:1-2. "Hearken unto me ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: Look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and the hole whence ye are digged. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him. "

You have been trained and certified worthy by man but now you need to seek God's certification and approval. This can be achievable only if you can be wise enough to always remember whose son you are.

You are to emulate the lifestyle of our G.O who is our spiritual father. God called and anointed our G.O and gave him the three-fold vision and mandate.

Therefore, as you go into the field to operate in your area of calling, the ministry will now be a testing ground for you to put into practice what you have learnt. It is not a time to feel you have arrived or you are indispensable in the church.

It should not be a time when you also begin to think you can stand alone and do as you please because what you are seeing here is the outcome of a life totally yielded to God and his will.

Let me assert that The Lord's Chosen Church is one of the mysteries of our generation that is beyond human understanding. It can equally be described as a riddle in the body of Christ that nobody could solve. But I can describe it as a divine mandate that God himself is executing systematically.

I congratulate you for being among the privileged few that have the opportunity to serve in this end-time ministry. I therefore counsel you to shun vainglory, over ambition, pride and immediate gratification. But rather imbibe the spirit of humility, sacrifice, selflessness and commitment to the service of the Lord

Primarily, you have been trained to contribute your quota towards the actualization of the vision and mandate of this great ministry; and not to pursue your personal agenda. It is therefore expected of you to be loyal to the course of the ministry, focused to pursue her goals while also ensuring that you maintain the right relationship with our Lord and Master Jesus Christ whom you have come to seek and serve. Brethren, in all of our earthly pursuit we must not lose sight of the third vision which is Heaven at Last.

To our invited guests, on behalf of the management and students we welcome you most heartily and thank you for the honour you have done us by responding to our invitation. As busy as your personal schedule, you deemed it fit to abandon all and attend this occasion. This is a show of your love and high regard you have for the institution.

As spouses, parents or relatives of the graduating students, I urge you to have it in mind that the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ is time-intensive. You are to show understanding by allowing your loved one who has answered this call to share this short earthly time to which we are all subjected between you and the Master's work. As you do, you will not lose your reward in Jesus name, Amen.
Brothers and sisters here present, it is my pleasure to announce to you that a total of 456 students will be graduating from all our campuses. Of this number, 11 people will bag the coveted Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theology, 91 will be awarded Diploma in Theology and 370 will receive Certificate in Theology. Also, graduating are 65 students who have been trained in Foreign Missions Basic Course.

It is my belief that these ones will justify the time they have spent in this great institute and excel in their service to the Lord. Thank you and God bless you all.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...




THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: FRIDAY, JANUARY 22ND 2016.

THEME: FOLLOWING GOD WITH KNOWLEDGE

TEXT: Hosea 4:6
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

MEMORY VERSE: Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Proverbs 29:18.


MESSAGE:
Knowledge is the key to dealing with any situation and coming out on top. Lack of knowledge of any matter spiritual or otherwise can only lead to failures and pains. It is surprising that many Christians do not actually understand God, His ways and breath taking abilities.

If you do not truly understand God, though a Christian, how can you please Him? Prophet Hosea lamented in our opening text that the people of God are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Knowledge of what? Knowledge of God's abilities, deliverance power, healing power, knowledge of who they are and how they can turn situations around even when in lion's den

The people of God should understand that every bit of the word of God has been tested and proved and cannot change. All the promises of God are true. What He did in the Bible time, He can do today. Whatever you are experiencing in life has solution in the Bible; sickness, barrenness, attacks of the enemies, disappointments etc.

The word of God is new every moment, so believe God and His word, and situations will bow to your desire. If you are unsure of whom God is or His power, the devil and other life challenges will roll you over. As you truly understand God and His ways, your faith will be boosted to remove mountains and shut up the lion's mouth.

Our memory verse reminds us that people perish where there is no vision, so re-align your walk with the Lord in full knowledge of Him and live a life well pleasing to Him and you will walk in authority as Jesus designed it.

PRAYER POINTS:
Ask God to root out unbelief in your life.

Pray for increase faith and knowledge of God.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior. I surrender my life to you. Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!

THEME: DWELLING IN HIS PRESENCE

TEXT: Exodus 33.14
14 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.

MEMORY VERSE: How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts! My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God. Psalm 84:1-2

MESSAGE:
God is everywhere but His presence is not everywhere. The presence of God in the midst of His people is beyond human understanding because it brings joy inexplicable and dissolves every burden in our hearts.

The presence of God goes with genuine believers anywhere they go to protect and deliver them in difficult situation. On the other hand, dwelling in the presence of God goes beyond our expectation that He is always with us. His presence can be activated in many ways ranging from studying and meditating on the scriptures, prayer and supplication, praising God, preaching or doing the work of God.

Whatever honourable we do in the name of the Lord, His presence comes down to show His Power. We can therefore enjoy His presence when we engage in spiritual exercise and turning our mind towards the things of God anywhere we are.

As we put God first in everything we do and please Him, His presence will not depart from us. Any child of God that is not experiencing His presence has some amendments to make. This is because there is no way the presence of God will be with an immoral person, a thief, charm makers and carriers, liars, lovers of pleasure etc.

It is not only when we come into the church building that we feel His presence but anywhere His true children are

Again, the presence of God in our lives is reassuring, as it makes His promises so real in our lives and situation.

In our memory verse, the psalmist clearly understood the benefit and essence of dwelling in the presence of God when he declared that his heart longed for the Lord even his flesh. Little wonder he was the man after God's heart.

PRAYER POINTS:
Pray for the enabling grace to dwell in His presence daily.
Ask the Holy Spirit to make your heart habitable for God.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior. I surrender my life to you. Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL ...

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: WEDNESDAY, 20TH JANUARY 2016.

THEME: SET NO EVIL BEFORE YOUR EYES

TEXT: Psalm 101:3
3 I will set no evil thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

MEMORY VERSE: The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! Matthew 6:22-23

MESSAGE:
Being spiritually alert all the time is what every believer of Christ should not ignore. We are living in a world where the devil has painted evil good and appealing to weak Christians. The fact is that so many Christians commit sin through their eyes. How? They pollute their spiritual life through what they see, view or watch.

Let us not forget that sin starts building up in the mind through mainly what the eyes see. And so we are not permitted to watch ungodly T.V programmes, videos, films. It is also an abomination for us to read romantic novels, magazines or pornography articles. As Chosen members, it is a sacrilege for us to go to cinemas, dancing halls or to beaches where unbridled immorality takes place.

You might be saying, “Well, does it matter?” it’s just entertainment, it is not a big deal and that is why our memory verse says that the light of the body is the eyes. As you watch this evil programmes through your phones, ipad, ipod or any other device, they will set your imagination aflame, shape your desire and thought towards committing evil especially immorality and worldliness.

If you love watching musicals, home or foreign videos or other ungodly programmes, you are gradually leaving the narrow way to the way of death and eternal shame, so amend your ways.

Let us therefore select what we read, watch or view in line with the word of God. you must understand that whatever you call entertainment whether on the radio, T.V or magazine and newspapers does not have the support of Jesus Christ whom you claim is your master, so be wise before it is too late.

PRAYER POINTS:
Pray and ask God to heal your eyes of pollution.
Pray and vow never to set wickedness before your eyes.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore.

Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior. I surrender my life to you. Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL ...

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: MONDAY, JANUARY 11TH, 2016.

THEME: THE BROAD & NARROW WAY

TEXT: Matthew 7:13-14
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

MEMORY VERSE: And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: Isaiah 35:8-10

MESSAGE:
For every human born into this physical world, he or she must follow either the broad way to hellfire or the narrow way to heaven at the end of this life. In other words, eternity is real and the activities of an individual person will either land him on the broad way or narrow way.

If you are not born-again and living as you wish, you are already on the broad way that stops in the pit of hell. It is immaterial whether you believe it or not.

The broad way is preferred by those who have no hope outside this world. Their behaviour runs counter to the word of God. In their bid to enjoy life, they do all manner of wickedness. also the broad way is reserved for liars, cheats, thieves, fraudsters, lesbians, homosexuals, fornicators, abortionists, idolaters, haters of others, false witnesses, forger of documents, worldly dancers, drunkards, extortioners, covetous people and many other works of dishonesty and wickedness.

As long as you love the things of this world and its corrupt system, you are on the broad way. A cursory look at the world today reveals that most people across the nations are already on the broad way to eternal damnation.

Our memory verse tells us that the only way to heaven is the highway of holiness or the narrow way. The Lord counsels us to enter into life through the striat gate but unfortunately, the things of God do not appeal to so many people to their own eternal detriment.

As long as you are alive, I invite you to switch side and come over to the narrow way before it is too late. Remember that no amount of enjoyment in this sinking world can be compared with crushing sorrow in hellfire without end, so be wise and come to Jesus and He will receive you.

PRAYER POINTS:
Ask God to deliver you from vanity.
Pray for the grace to be on the narrow way till the end.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: FRIDAY, JANUARY 8TH, 2016.

THEME: BELIEVERS SHUT OUT OF HEAVEN

TEXT: Matthew 25:10
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

MEMORY VERSE: And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Revelation 22:12-13

MESSAGE:
The ultimate goal of believers and followers of Jesus Christ is to be In heaven at the end of this life. Lack of knowledge or ignorance has nothing to do with the fact that this present world will soon pass away with all its grandeur.

If heaven is your goal, how are you preparing to go there? In our opening text, those who were not prepared by toying with their salvation could not enter into the marriage supper of the lamb even though they were Christians.

You must ask yourself some probing questions about your salvation and answer them truthfully. Is anything standing between you and God? Are there secret sins? Have you experienced genuine salvation? The crowd in the Lord’s Chosen may be great but God knows us one by one according to the work of our hands and there is no respect of anybody.

Do you imagine getting prepared to travel abroad with your visa and necessary requirements and as soon as your plane touches down on that country of your dream, your visa is examined and cancelled as fake and you are repatriated! Such an experience has ruined many people and will continue to do so.

Stop and think: what can make holy angels to turn you back from the gate of heaven after your life here on earth? Worldly dressing, inconsistent Christian life, little lies, immorality, dishonesty, tradition, unfaithfulness, love of the things of this life etc. is it worth it?

Remember that no one is a child of God until his or her name appears and remains in the book of life. If there will be believers shut out of heaven, it will be careless Christians who are in the camp of Judas, Esau, Gehazi, Demas and their likes, so examine yourself now before it is too late.

According to our memory verse, the Lord is coming quickly, so make haste now.

PRAYER POINTS:
Pray and reject anything capable of shutting you out of heaven.
Pray for daily spiritual strength to carry on the race till the end.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away.
