MEMORY VERSE: ” And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.” – Acts 16:9

BIBLE PASSAGE: Acts 16:4-10

4 And as they went through the cities, they delivered them the decrees for to keep, that were ordained of the apostles and elders which were at Jerusalem.

5 And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.

6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,

7 After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.

8 And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.

9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.

10 And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.

LESSON INTRODUCTION:

Some traits that distinguished Paul as a great missionary in our text will be discussed.

TEXT REVIEW: Acts 16:4-10

i. Mission field is a battle field and when battles are won, the Body of Christ is strengthened

ii. Numbers of souls are increased to God’s Kingdom when we engage in Mission work

iii. Sensitivity is a must for everyone who must engage in mission work.

iv. Holy Spirit is the instructor, guidance and director of the Mission Field.

LESSON OUTLINES:

  1. Paul has plans for missions: (covering new grounds for Christ), and consolidation of already founded churches. We can’t be so engrossed with conquering new territories that we let the already conquered one slip away and we can’t be so carried away with the already conquered territories that we forget the yet to be conquered ones. Who knows if the army that the anti christ is going to gather to fight Christ at Armageddon are the territories or the souls the church has failed to conquer or win. Christ said, those who are not with Him are against Him.
  2. Paul was sensitive to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit stopped him twice from going to places he had planned to go to and he obeyed. He was not wise in his own eyes as to disobey the leading of the Holy Spirit.
  3. Paul was a man of prayer: This is no news. After the Spirit stopped him twice, he prayed to know where He would go. This was his disposition since his encounter with the Lord on the way to Damascus (Acts 9:6). The result of his prayers opened a window for him to see where he was needed most – Macedonia. His obedience resulted in first and second Corinthians, first and second Thessalonians and the Philippians.

SUMMARY:
Every believe has been to called unto mission work.

CONCLUSION:
There may be no one calling in your dreams, but people are calling for helps in the streets, in the villages, in the creeks, in the deserts, in the cities etc; if you are sensitive to the Holy Spirit, you will know where to go to and what to do. May be the Holy Spirit is also stopping you from going somewhere so that you can answer the call to missions. Maybe He is stopping you from spending on something so that you can sponsor mission’s activities.

ASSIGNMENTS:
List the characteristics of a good missionary.

PRAYER POINTS

  1. Lord, make me an incurable soul winner for You in Jesus Name.
  2. Father, You sent Jonah to Nineveh and the people repented and came back to You, please send me today to that place penciled for Your mercy.
  3. “Behold All souls are mine” says the Lord, Father, create in me addiction and compassion for souls as the joint heir with Jesus.
  4. Holy Spirit, please lead RCCG to conquer more missionary ground for You both locally and foreign in Jesus’ Name.
  5. Personal prayer request.

GOLDEN DIET FOR THE WEEK

MONDAY: Acts 16:9.
We must preach the Gospel throughout the whole world, hence the call to duty by the Holy Spirit.

TUESDAY: 2 Timothy 4:2.
The Gospel must be preached in and out of season, meaning, we must not be tired till the coming of Jesus Christ.

WEDNESDAY: Matthew 24:14
All the End time signals are ripe but the preaching of the Gospel has not reached the end of the world, thus this may be one of the factors still holding back Jesus.

THURSDAY: Acts 16:5
How can the gospel spread if there is nobody to preach it round.

FRIDAY: Romans 10:14
How can the Gospel spread if there is nobody to preach it around.

SATURDAY: Titus1:3
Father, please use me to preach Your Words.

SUNDAY: 1 Thessalonians 2:4
Give all house fellowship members the grace to preach the Gospel.

  2. RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual 22 March 2020 – Lesson 30

BIBLE PASSAGE: Matthew 15:29-39

29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.

30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them:

31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.

32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.

33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?

34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.

35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.

36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.

38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.

39 And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.

LESSON INTRODUCTION:

Mercy is the ability to forgive and forget the sins of others. It may also be defined as an act of being compassionate to others, especially those who ordinarily would not have been forgiven. Jonah 2:1-10, Jonah 4:2. Favour, on the other hand, is an act of kindness performed or granted out of goodwill to others. 1Chronicle 28:4, 1Kings 3:7. Divine mercy and favour therefore is God’s ability to forgive human beings their sins and thereafter show kindness willingly, without any string attached to it. 1 Kings 3:6.

We pray that more than what we know, the master teacher, that is the holy Spirit, will reveal more, to us as we study together, In Jesus Name. Amen

MEMORY VERSE: “Thou shalt arise, [and] have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.” – Psalm 102:13.

RCCG HOUSE FELLOWSHIP LEADERS’ MANUAL March 1st 2020. LESSON 27

RCCG HOUSE FELLOWSHIP LEADERS’ MANUAL March 1st 2020. LESSON 27

TOPIC: BY THEIR FRUITS, YOU SHALL KNOW THEM.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please help me bear fruit that comes from you.

BIBLE PASSAGE: Matthew 7:15-20

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

RCCG HOUSE FELLOWSHIP LEADERS’ MANUAL March 1st, 2020. LESSON: TWENTY (27)

INTRODUCTION:
Our bible text today (Matthew 7:15-20) is a powerful warning from Jesus that there are many who will come in His name who are actively seeking to lead us away from the truth, and we are to be on guard against this. Also in Matthew 12:33-37, He Illustrated with a tree known by its fruit and says that in the day of judgement, people will be judged by their words. He is saying here that fruit are the words that are produced i.e fruits is the product of inner life.

MEMORY VERSE:
Wherefore by their fruit ye shall know them. Matthew 7:20.

LESSON OUTLINES:
A tree and it fruit (Luke 6:43-45, Matthew 12:23-37)
The fruit of a fig tree are figs, the fruit of a grape vine are grapes and the fruit of a prophet is his prophecy. Every good tree bear good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

TWO KINDS OF TREE

1. Tree that produces the fruits of sin. Galatians 5:19-21

2. Tree that produces the fruit of the holy spirit. Galatians 5:22-23.

More Bible Verse On False Prophets:

1. Prophets that prophecy lies. Jeremiah 23:25-32
2. False Christs and false prophets. Mark 13:22-23, 2 Peter 2:1-3.
3. Do not believe every spirit. 1 John 4:1-6.
4. Beware of other gospel that is not of Christ. Galatian 1:8-9.
5. Beware of false apostles, deceitful workers. 2 Corin.11:13-26.
6. God spoke through moses in Deut.13:1 – 5 and Deut.18:20-22.

SUMMARY: Be sensitive watch what you allow into you. Not all that shine is Gold.

CONCLUSION: We must be grounded in the Word of God for us to be able to discern good fruit from the bad ones and also to distinguish good from evil (Colossians 2:6-10). Being grounded in the Word of God will not only allow us to bear godly fruits, but will also allow us to recognize the same when we see it. Also, praying constantly and allowing Holy spirit to guide our life is very important. RCCG HOUSE FELLOWSHIP LEADERS’ MANUAL March 1st, 2020. LESSON: TWENTY (27)

ASSIGNMENT: Start bearing Godly fruit beginning from now.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Thank God for your salvation and His mercies over you.
2. Ask God to give afresh unto you the gift of Holy Spirit.
3. Father, totally remove every tree in me that brings no forth good fruit in Jesus Name.
4. Pray for rapid growth of RCCG physically, spiritually and numerically.
5. Pray for Daddy General Overseer and those in authority in Nigeria.
6. Personal prayer request.

TOPIC: Arise In Prayer To Unseat Your Enemies`Siege (scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 5 January 2020 Anthem)

PRAYER POINT: Father, please terminate every operation in my life. (RCCG House Fellowship 5 January 2020)

BIBLE PASSAGE: 2 Chronicles 32:1-22

1 After these things, and the establishment thereof, Sennacherib king of Assyria came, and entered into Judah, and encamped against the fenced cities, and thought to win them for himself.

2 And when Hezekiah saw that Sennacherib was come, and that he was purposed to fight against Jerusalem,

3 He took counsel with his princes and his mighty men to stop the waters of the fountains which were without the city: and they did help him.

4 So there was gathered much people together, who stopped all the fountains, and the brook that ran through the midst of the land, saying, Why should the kings of Assyria come, and find much water?

5 Also he strengthened himself, and built up all the wall that was broken, and raised it up to the towers, and another wall without, and repaired Millo in the city of David, and made darts and shields in abundance.

6 And he set captains of war over the people, and gathered them together to him in the street of the gate of the city, and spake comfortably to them, saying,

7 Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him:

8 With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.

9 After this did Sennacherib king of Assyria send his servants to Jerusalem, (but he himself laid siege against Lachish, and all his power with him,) unto Hezekiah king of Judah, and unto all Judah that were at Jerusalem, saying,

10 Thus saith Sennacherib king of Assyria, Whereon do ye trust, that ye abide in the siege in Jerusalem?

11 Doth not Hezekiah persuade you to give over yourselves to die by famine and by thirst, saying, The LORD our God shall deliver us out of the hand of the king of Assyria?

12 Hath not the same Hezekiah taken away his high places and his altars, and commanded Judah and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall worship before one altar, and burn incense upon it?

13 Know ye not what I and my fathers have done unto all the people of other lands? were the gods of the nations of those lands any ways able to deliver their lands out of mine hand?

14 Who was there among all the gods of those nations that my fathers utterly destroyed, that could deliver his people out of mine hand, that your God should be able to deliver you out of mine hand?

15 Now therefore let not Hezekiah deceive you, nor persuade you on this manner, neither yet believe him: for no god of any nation or kingdom was able to deliver his people out of mine hand, and out of the hand of my fathers: how much less shall your God deliver you out of mine hand?

16 And his servants spake yet more against the LORD God, and against his servant Hezekiah.

17 He wrote also letters to rail on the LORD God of Israel, and to speak against him, saying, As the gods of the nations of other lands have not delivered their people out of mine hand, so shall not the God of Hezekiah deliver his people out of mine hand.

18 Then they cried with a loud voice in the Jews’ speech unto the people of Jerusalem that were on the wall, to affright them, and to trouble them; that they might take the city.

19 And they spake against the God of Jerusalem, as against the gods of the people of the earth, which were the work of the hands of man.

20 And for this cause Hezekiah the king, and the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz, prayed and cried to heaven.

21 And the LORD sent an angel, which cut off all the mighty men of valour, and the leaders and captains in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned with shame of face to his own land. And when he was come into the house of his god, they that came forth of his own bowels slew him there with the sword.

22 Thus the LORD saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib the king of Assyria, and from the hand of all other, and guided them on every side.

INTRODUCTION: It is appropriate we briefly explain “siege” and “prayer”. What is siege? Siege is defined in the dictionary as “a military operation in which enemy forces surround a town or building, cutting off essential supplies, with the aim of compelling those inside to surrender”. While prayer is a two-way communication between a believer and his/her father in heaven who is the Almighty God. Matthew 11:2-4. Prayer could be for thanksgiving, supplication and requests. Philippians 4:6. We have prayer of worship or adoration, intercessory prayers, spiritual warfare and prayer of agreement (Corporate Prayer) Acts 1:14; 2:42 etc. There is also praying in the Spirit Ephesians 6:18. The devil knows the power embedded in prayer that it can scatter any satanic gathering mounted against a nation, family or child of God. That is why he does everything possible to keep people away from praying. Will you allow him to succeed in your life? May the Lord revive our prayer lives as we study His word today in Jesus name.

MEMORY VERSE: “For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side.” Luke 19:43

TEXT REVIEW: 2 Chronicles 32: 1-22

LESSON OUTLINES
i. It does not matter the number that has gathered against you.
ii. God is able to save those who trust in Him
iii. The arm of flesh will fail you.
iv. Call on God in the day of trouble.
v. God is a man of war.

PRAYER IS THE SOLUTION TO YOUR ENEMIES` SIEGE

  1. King Hezekiah of Judah and prophet Isaiah offered a corporate prayer, also called a prayer of agreement, against the siege of Sennacherib, the king of Assyria, and God intervened and defeated their strong enemy. 2 Chronicles 32:20-22
  2. Daniel prayed and the satanic gang-up of his enemies was neutralized by God and He made all of them meat for the lions. Daniel 6:3-22
  3. Esther and her people prayed and the perfect plan of Haman backfired on him. He died a shameful death. Esther 3:1-6; 4:16; 7:9-10RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual 5 January 2020 – Lesson 19

PRAYERLESSNESS HELPS YOUR ENEMIES TO PREVAIL

-Without God we can do nothing, John 15:5.
By strength shall no man prevail, 1 Samuel 2:9. We need to serve God so that we can enjoy all His promises and be able to call on Him for intervention whenever storm arises. Psalm 50:15; 86:7

  1. (2 Kings 25:1-7). King Zedekiah of Judah did not serve God unlike King Josiah and Hezekiah and when the king of Babylon laid siege against Jerusalem for a considerable long time, there was much famine. He did not repent and cry to God, rather he tried to escape by his own wisdom. He was caught and taken to Babylon where all his sons were slaughtered before him and they also plucked out his eyes.

When a man fails to pray, his enemies will reign supreme in his life. As a matter of fact, the devil will take charge of his destiny. John 10:10.

SUMMARY:
Trust God who is able to save.

CONCLUSION:
A closed mouth is a closed destiny and a prayerless man is a defeated man. Call on God and He will deliver you from the enemies´ siege. Prayer lifts up the hand of God, but prayerlessness encourages the devil to continue with his destruction.

ASSIGNMENT:
Mention Biblical example of those that trust God without wavering.

PRAYER POINTS:

  1. Father, grant me the wisdom to seek Your timely help always.
  2. Lord of hosts; dislodge every siege of the enemies against my life.
  3. Oh Lord my God, don´t let the devil have a space in my life.
  4. Father, unseat every siege of kidnappers and ritualists in Nigeria.
  5. Father, every siege against any of Your children in RCCG, scatter it by fire in Jesus name.

RCCG House Fellowship Leader’s Manual 8 December 2019

TOPIC: Every Youth Should Be A Combatant Soldier Of The Cross (scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 8 December 2019 Anthem)

PRAYER POINT: Father, use me, I am ready to be enlisted. (RCCG House Fellowship 8 December 2019)

MEMORY VERSE: “And when Saul saw David go forth against the Philistine, he said unto Abner, the captain of the host, Abner, whose son is this youth? And Abner said, As thy soul liveth, O king, I cannot tell.” – 1 Samuel 17:55

TEXT: 1 Samuel 17:31-51

31 And when the words were heard which David spake, they rehearsed them before Saul: and he sent for him.

32 And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.

33 And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.

34 And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:

35 And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.

36 Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.

37 David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the LORD be with thee.

38 And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail.

39 And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.

40 And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.

41 And the Philistine came on and drew near unto David; and the man that bare the shield went before him.

42 And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.

43 And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.

44 And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.

45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

46 This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

47 And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’S, and he will give you into our hands.

48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.

51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.

INTRODUCTION:

Who is a “youth”? A youth is a young person, who is full of energy, vibrant and is between upper teen´s years and twenties and thirties. The “Combatant Soldier of the Cross” on the other hand may be defined as a soldier of the armies of God or those who release themselves to be used as His battle-axe in winning souls, establishing souls before God, in delivering captives and in ensuring that destinies of people are restored back. We pray that the Holy Spirit gives us more insight into the topic.

LESSON OUTLINES

WHY SHOULD YOUTH BE COMBATANT SOLDIERS OF THE CROSS?

1. Nobody knows when his/her time will be up, that death will come knocking, so it is better to start early in life, so that whenever the time is up, heaven will be one´s surest destination.

2. It is good to be trained, to imbibe good virtues and to be able to demonstrate what one has learned right from the youthful age.

3. The element of surprise is often associated with many activities of the youth.

4. The youthful exuberance always makes them to be determined to make a change; in this case: a positive change.

5. Energy or strength which is needed in addition to the wisdom of God to be able to excel as a soldier of the cross, can be found abundantly in the youth. – Proverbs 20:29; Psalm 8:2

6. Apart from being a good ground for God to demonstrate His greatness, it also provides opportunity to use them for a longer period.

7. The ability to combine modern technology with the ancient knowledge gained and by listening to the voice of God or through reading His words makes them more advantageously placed than adults.

8. They consequently have a wider audience to reach out than the older ones.

9. The popular adage says: “An idle mind is the devils workshop”. When we engage our youth in things of God, obviously the kingdom of the devil will be depopulated.

10. Engaging them from a youthful age in things of God also will not allow them to occupy their minds with devilish acts, such as joining cults, internet frauds, pornographic sides, addiction and other vices.

SUMMARY: God’s army is the strongest and the best you can find, join now at the possible peak of your effectiveness.

CONCLUSION: Every family should make it a matter of utmost priority to ensure that their young ones are enlisted into God’s Army.

PRAYER POINTS:

1. Father, thank you for this exposition concerning our youth.

2. My father, my father, please help us to train our youth in the way of the Lord.

3. Almighty father, please help all the youth of RCCG worldwide to be established as God´s Combatants.

4. Father, please empower all the christian youth with Your spirit of boldness to preach Your gospel and to do exploits for You.

5. Father, please help Daddy G.O. and his family to continuously be a breeding ground for recruitment of youth into the army of the cross.

6. Father, please grant us at our various House Fellowship Centres divine revelations how to raise young combatant soldiers into God’s army. .

2 And he took some of his brethren, even five men, and presented them unto Pharaoh.

3 And Pharaoh said unto his brethren, What is your occupation? And they said unto Pharaoh, Thy servants are shepherds, both we, and also our fathers.

4 They said moreover unto Pharaoh, For to sojourn in the land are we come; for thy servants have no pasture for their flocks; for the famine is sore in the land of Canaan: now therefore, we pray thee, let thy servants dwell in the land of Goshen.

5 And Pharaoh spake unto Joseph, saying, Thy father and thy brethren are come unto thee:

6 The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle.

Genesis 47:27 – And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.

Exodus 8:22 – And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which My people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.

Exodus 9:26 – Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

Exodus 10:23 – They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

MEMORY VERSE: “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” – 1 John 2:17

SUMMARY: God has a secured place for everyone in trouble that is in need of rest, and that is in Goshen.

CONCLUSION: “Goshen” is the called out for believers of today. Are you in Goshen or do you want to remain in Egypt? Remember, all these destructions are still in the world, why don’t you escape to the Lord’s side today?

RCCG House Fellowship Leader’s Manual 13 October 2019 – Vengeance Is Mine

RCCG House Fellowship Leader’s Manual 13 October 2019, Lesson 7 – Vengeance Is Mine

Click HERE for Previous RCCG Manual

TOPIC: Vengeance Is Mine (scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 13 October 2019 Anthem)

PRAYER POINT: Father, please avenge over all my enemies and give me a permanent rest (RCCG House Fellowship 13 October 2019)

RCCG House Fellowship Leader’s Manual 6 October 2019

BIBLE PASSAGE: Romans 12:17-21

17 But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.

18 Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter.

19 And when Herod had sought for him, and found him not, he examined the keepers, and commanded that they should be put to death. And he went down from Judaea to Caesarea, and there abode.

20 And Herod was highly displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon: but they came with one accord to him, and, having made Blastus the king’s chamberlain their friend, desired peace; because their country was nourished by the king’s country.

21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.

INTRODUCTION: It is the human nature to always revenge or to give reactions to what people say or do to us especially, when they are hurting. The physical reaction may not deal with the root of the source of the hurt. Most of the time, we may not be in the knowhow of the root of our hurts, but when we surrender the hurt and its source unto God, He knows how to deal with them even beyond our wildest imagination.

MEMORY VERSE: “O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.” – Psalm 94:1

TEXT REVIEW: Romans 12:17-21

i. Never should your actions be a cause to revenge.

ii. Love covers multitude of sin.

iii. Avoid conflict/fight and live in peace with all men.

iv. The battle is of the Lord.

v. God is just and Righteous. You should count on His Judgement.

LESSON OUTLINE

WHY YOU SHOULD ALLOW GOD TO AVENGE YOUR ENEMIES:

1 Every hurt and its root is planned and devised by the devil.

2 The human host used by the devil may be unaware until he/she has been used.

3 God knows and understands the root of all evil devices.

4 God’s action is to deal with the evil and to ultimately put them to shame.

5 God’s action is complete, total and permanent.

6 Human action is from the flesh, temporary and partial.

7 God’s judgement is sometimes arranged to bless or to promote you.

SUMMARY: God’s Judgement can be trusted, never avenge your enemies.

CONCLUSION: Sometimes when you want to revenge, you receive more hurts or injury. So, why not leave the revenge to Him. God sees everything, but we see just a little. Let the One who sees everything take up total revenge against our enemies.

Do not act by yourself or through any other person or means. Let your God arise and let Him scatter His enemies (Psalm 68:1-3), because your enemies are God’s enemies. Exodus 23:22

ASSIGNMENT: Take time to and forgive all your offender even if you have to hand them over to God’s Judgment.

PRAYER POINTS

1 Father, from today, turn all my enemies to Your enemies in Jesus name.

2 My Lord, my God, wherever the enemies are planning my hurt and downfall, please arise and scatter them, in Jesus name.

3 Father, arise and avenge all enemies of Nigeria in Jesus name.

4 Father, please arise and avenge all enemies of RCCG worldwide.

5 Father, in every way and means, the enemies may raise their ugly heads, please send confusion into their camp in Jesus’ name.

GOLDEN THE FOR THE WEEK

MONDAY: Psalm 94:1; Deuteronomy 32:35 – Sometimes when you want to revenge, you may receive more hurts or injury. So, why not leave the revenge to Him?.

TUESDAY: John 13:3 – God sees everything. We see but little. Let the One who sees everything take up total revenge against our enemies.

WEDNESDAY: Job 13:3 – Every revenge comes with future questioning or litigations, but God´s revenge is unquestionable.

THURSDAY: Isaiah 63:4; Proverbs 24:29 – ´Vengeance is mine´ means you cannot really take the right vengeance against your enemies.

FRIDAY: Isaiah 35:4 – Most of our enemies are stronger than us. Let the invincible and unconquerable God deal with your enemies for you.RCCG House Fellowship Leader’s Manual 22 September 2019

SATURDAY: Jeremiah 11:20 – Lord as a vengeance against my enemies, let them begin to bow before me like to Joseph.

SUNDAY: Jeremiah 20:12 – Every evil plan that will make me fall, Father, take vengeance against them now.

RCCG House Fellowship Leader’s Manual 6 October 2019

RCCG House Fellowship Leader’s Manual 6 October 2019, Lesson 6 – Provoking God’s Blessings

RCCG House Fellowship Leader’s Manual 6 October 2019

TOPIC: Provoking God’s Blessings (scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 6 October 2019 Anthem)

PRAYER POINT: Father, help me to exhibit attributes that provokes your blessing (RCCG House Fellowship 6 October 2019)

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Kings 3:3-14

3 And Solomon loved the LORD, walking in the statutes of David his father: only he sacrificed and burnt incense in high places.

4 And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there; for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that altar.

5 In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.

6 And Solomon said, Thou hast shewed unto thy servant David my father great mercy, according as he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou hast kept for him this great kindness, that thou hast given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.

7 And now, O LORD my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.

8 And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.

9 Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?

10 And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.

11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;

12 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.

13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.

14 And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.

INTRODUCTION: The word “provoke” is used variously in English language, however, the dictionary states that ‘to stir up, incite or arouse’. This simply means that something in your life needs particular things to stir it up before it can roll into action. Every harvest, for example, even in the spiritual is stirred up by the process of sowing.

MEMORY VERSE: And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself: – 1 Kings 2:3

TEXT REVIEW: 1 Kings 3:3-14

i. Your motive determines God’s response

ii. God is never involved if your motive is void of love

iii. Ultimate/Complete/Total Obedience is a prerequisite to God’s Blessing.

iv. God resist the proud and gives to the humble

v. The quality of time you spend with God is the quality of your blessing from God.

LESSON OUTLINE

Various Ways of Provoking God’s Blessings

1. Be born again, love righteousness and hate iniquity. John 3:16; Hebrews. 1:9

2. Be an incurable giver and sow uncontrollably. Eccl. 11:6; 1 Kings 3:4-5.

3. Love and serve God with all your heart and strength. I Kings 3:3; Matt. 22:37

4. Total obedience. Gen. 22:2-3

5. Spend quality time in His presence. Be a dweller and not a visitor to His holy habitation. Ps. 91:1; Matt. 14:23; Luke 6:12; Luke 2:25-32.

6. Praise and worshipping Him regularly. John 4:23-24; Ps. 22:3; Ps. 100:4

7. Engage in regular prayers and fasting. Isaiah 58:6-8; Matt. 17:21; Matt. 9:15

8. Hospitality provokes God’s blessings. Gen. 18:1-10; 19:1-3,12-13; 2 Kings 4:12-17.

SUMMARY: God’s Blessing is priceless but it comes with a price

CONCLUSION: “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” Proverbs 10:22. There are many ways that may accelerate or fast track God’s blessings. Complete obedience to the instructions of God is one of them. The very first miracle of Jesus at the Marriage at Cana of Galilee was largely because of the servants’ obedience to Jesus instructions. John 2:1-11.

PRAYER POINTS

1 Father, give me the grace to continue to sow seed, and give me unusual timely harvest.

2 Father, our families need your blessings, please give us appropriate directions to accelerate blessings.

3 Father, whatever may rain your anger and curses upon us, please cleanse us with the blood of Jesus Christ by your mercy.

4 Father, please speedily fulfill all your promises in our centres and churches.

5 Father, the grace to obey and observe your commandments, release unto your Church today

GOLDEN THE FOR THE WEEK

TUESDAY: Matthew 22:36-38 – The first law is to love the Lord, your God with all your strength and might.

WEDNESDAY: Deuteronomy 28:15-68 – Is there any way you are provoking God’s curses instead of God’s blessings, ask God to terminate them today.

THURSDAY: 1 Kings 3:1-14 – Lord, please give me the grace to give you something spectacular.
