2 LESSON OUTLINES

LESSON OUTLINE 1: BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES TO LONGEVITY

To live long, we must live by divine principles. Some of these principles are clearly stated in the bible. For instance:

iii. Aside spiritual empowerment, fasting can also boost one’s health a and prolong life (Isa. 58:5-8).

iv. The bible also talks about honouring our parents as a secret of longevity (Pro.4:10; Eph.6:1-3; Ex.20:12).

v. In addition, we need to have a balanced lifestyle. Everything may be permissible, but not everything is beneficial (1Cor.10:23; 1Cor.6:19).

vi. Eating nutritious food, exercising regularly, observing good rest and avoiding stress constitute some of the other ways to have a balanced lifestyle.

TOPIC: Jesus Has Given Us Power To Dominate

BIBLE TEXT: Luke 10:18-19

18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

STUDENT MANUAL RCCG SUNDAY SCHOOL

MEMORY VERSE: “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” – Luke 10:19

LESSON AIM: To make them understand that Jesus has equipped them to dominate.

CENTRAL TRUTH: Tremendous power to dominate is available to every child of God.

INTRODUCTION: The power of God is made available to us His children through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This power can overcome all powers of the enemy. To dominate means to have power and influence over something. It means ability to exercise control.

STUDY GUIDE:
A. Check and answering the questions below and understand more about this lesson:

  1. Who has all power and authority? Matt.28:18 ………………………………..
  2. Who gives His power to us? Luke 9:1 ……………………………………………
  3. We receive this at salvation. John 1:12 …………………………………………
  4. What is the power for? Luke 10:19 ……………………………………………….
  5. Eph.1:19-23. Describe the workings of God’s power from these verses
    …………………………………………………………………………………………
    …………………………………………………………………………………………

B. From our text, list out what we are to dominate and discuss them.

  1. …………………………………………………………………
  2. …………………………………………………………………
  3. …………………………………………………………………

DISCUSSION: When Jesus said serpent and scorpions, was He referring to the animals themselves or is there another meaning we can derive from the verve?

INVITATION/APPLICATION: Only those in Christ, those that have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Saviour can exercise His power and authority. Have you accepted Him. If no, today is the day of salvation. And if yes, go ahead and begin to exercise your authority.

CONCLUSION: Since we have been made in the image and likeness of God, we therefore have the ability to understand and exercise authority like our father. The dominion He has given us is to live victoriously in this life. Are you exercising your dominion?

RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual

BIBLE PASSAGE: Luke 10:30-35 KJV (RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual 12 January 2020)

30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

INTRODUCTION:

Healthcare is the maintenance or improvement of health via the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, illness, injury and other physical/mental impairments in human beings. The Bible is definitely pro-health and encourages us to take care of ourselves when we are sick. Proper attention should be given to any ailing parts of our bodies (Isaiah 1:5-6). The goal is to keep the body fit, as much as possible, in order to fulfil the purpose of living, serve and glorify the Lord (Isaiah 38:19).

OUTLINES

  1. Biblical clue
  2. The right approach

BIBLICAL CLUE

Seeking medical attention should not be viewed as demonic, lack of faith or carnal. Rather, there are scriptural proscriptions as well as contemporary medical interventions that do not just bring about quick relief but also saves lives (Isaiah 38:21). Ultimately, God heals (Exodus 15:26).

The Bible mention various medical processes/ treatments. For instance, people applied bandage and ointments to wound (Isaiah 1:6), Used oil and wine as healing agents (James 5:14; Luke 10:34; 1Timothy 5:23). This does not mean that modern surgery or pharmaceuticals are unbiblical, only that, when Bible was written, those treatments had not yet been invented (Daniel 12:4; Isaiah 33:6).

THE RIGHT APPROACH

There are several provisions at our disposal to improve or correct our health. Preventive healthy habits such as eating and sleeping well, drinking enough water, and doing regular exercises will steadily improve any person’s health. Christians should not hesitate to visit or consult with the approximate medical practitioners, when the need arises. We should however, avoid patronizing quarks, magicians or witchdoctors (Leviticus 19:31; Deuteronomy 18:10). Maternal healthcare is essential for pregnant women. Immunization of children against strange diseases/epidemics should not be taking for granted. It is also good to participate in healthcare insurance plan.

However, our ultimate faith and trust should be in God and not in the medical experts or medicine (Mark 5:25-26). All medical processes/treatments should be committed unto God before, during and after.

Physicians care, God heals ( Psalm 103:3; Psalm 7:20).

CONCLUSION
If we lack wisdom and let our bodies fall into disrepair, we risk sudden sickness or injury that can take us out of God’s purpose for living.

  1. What are the clues available for believers to care for their health?
  2. Mention the right approaches.

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV (RCCG Sunday School TEACHER’s Manual 5 January 2020)

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

MEMORY VERSE: “A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.” – Proverbs 27:12 (scroll down for RCCG Sunday School 5 January 2020 HYMN)

Healthy living is some time taken for granted by many believers. Taking care of our body is not about vanity. The decision to learn and implement healthy lifestyle is as important as the desire to prosper (3 John 2). True prosperity can only be enjoyed when we are in a state of good health. Some believers get too busy with work, families, ministry, etc. and barely have time to rest (Eccl. 3:1). Sound physical and mental health is achievable with the right application of the knowledge of healthy living.

2 LESSON OUTLINES

LESSON OUTLINE 1: REASONS FOR HEALTHY LIVING

As believers, taking care of our body is taking care of the temple of God (1 Cor. 6:15a) because:

i. Our bodies are the temple of God (1 Cor.6 19-20).

ii. Our bodies are precious to God and should be presented to Him as a living and healthy sacrifice ( Rom. 12:1).

iii. Being healthy makes the believers a good witness of the Christian faith a and an example of a true child of God ( Matt. 5:16; Tit. 2:7a).

iv. In bearing one another’s burden, only the healthy can take care of the unhealthy (Gal.6:2).
v. Believers will have more energy to do God’s work (Eph. 2:10).

vi. We should know that we are labourers together with God, created to do the things that He had planned a long time ago to us to do (1Cor. 3:9).

vii. We cannot do God’s work at our best if our bodies and minds are not in good state.

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: What do you think will happen if a believer refuses to take care of his/her body?

LESSON OUTLINE 2: HOW TO REMAIN HEALTHY

  1. Eat Right: Believers should eat healthy and balanced diets (Gen. 1:29-30). It is good to abstain from foods that will have negative impact on our bodies.
  2. Personal Hygiene: Proper washing of our body parts (private and public)/is essential for healthy living. Wash your underwear regularly, be well kept in and out and look neat.

RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV (RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual 5 January 2020)

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Healthy living is some time taken for granted by many believers. Taking care of our body is not about vanity. The decision to learn and implement healthy lifestyle is as important as the desire to prosper (3 John 2). True prosperity can only be enjoyed when we are in a state of good health. Some believers get too busy with work, families, ministry, etc. and barely have time to rest (Eccl. 3:1). Sound physical and mental health is achievable with the right application of the knowledge of healthy living.

OUTLINES

REASONS FOR HEALTHY LIVING

As believers, taking care of our body is taking care of the temple of God (1 Cor. 6:15a) because our bodies are the temple of God (1 Cor.6 19-20). Our bodies are precious to God and should be presented to Him as a living and healthy sacrifice (Rom. 12:1). Being healthy makes the believers a good witness of the Christian faith and an example of a true child of God (Matt. 5:16; Tit. 2:7a).In bearing one another’s burden, only the healthy can take care of the unhealthy (Gal.6:2). Believers will have more energy to do God’s work (Eph. 2:10). We should know that we are labourers together with God, created to do the things that He had planned a long time ago to us to do (1Cor. 3:9).

We cannot do God’s work at our best if our bodies and minds are not in good state.

HOW TO REMAIN HEALTHY

  1. Eat Right: Believers should eat healthy and balanced diets (Gen. 1:29-30). It is good to abstain from foods that will have negative impact on our bodies.
  2. Personal Hygiene: Proper washing of our body parts (private and public)/is essential for healthy living. Wash your underwear regularly, be well kept in and out and look neat.
  3. Regular Medical Check-Up: Right medical check-up is part of preventive healthy habit.
  4. Physical Exercise: Find time to exercise your body regularly in order to keep fit. (1 Tim. 4:8). You can take a walk, jog or do some light indoor games/recreation.
  5. Social/Emotional Wellness and Adequate Rest: Associate with lively believers, watch your mood and beware of symptoms of depression or anxiety. Take time to rest and sleep well (Pro. 17:22, 12:25; Psalm 4:8).
  6. Avoid living in an overcrowded room/environment to prevent easy spread of diseases.
  7. Obedience to God’s Command: The ultimate way of living well is to do what God says (Ex. 15:26; Pro. 4:20-22).

CONCLUSION: It is wise to plan well for our health The prudent sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keeps going and pays the penalty (Pro.27:12).

  1. Why should believers live heathy?
  2. How can one remain healthy?

RCCG Sunday School TEACHER’s Manual

TOPIC: Divine Healing

OPENING PRAYER: Father, please touch me with your hand of healing today. (Scroll down for RCCG Sunday School 29 December 2019 HYMN)

BIBLE PASSAGE: Matthew 8:5-13 KJV (RCCG Sunday School TEACHER’s Manual 29 December 2019)

5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,

6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

MEMORY VERSE: “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” – Psalms 107:20 (scroll down for RCCG Sunday School 29 December 2019 HYMN)

LESSON INTRODUCTION: It is not the plan of God for any of His children to be sick. In fact, God’s intentions are that they never have to be sick, tired or weary (3 John 2). His plan is to constantly renew their strength as they spend time with Him (Isaiah 40:28-31). He wants us to have all round wholeness (physical, emotional, spiritual, etc) so that it will be well with us (Isa. 3:10). Peradventure we fall sick, God has made provision for our healing (Ps.107:20). However, Divine healing is subject to a condition of absolute obedience to God’s command.

TEXT REVIEW: Matthew 8:5-13

A. According to the story in this Bible text:

i. Divine healing is possible if we run to God for it. v.5-6

ii. God will always respond to those who cry to Him for healing. v.7

B. Those in need of divine healing should do the following:

i. ……………………………………………….v.8a

ii. ……………………………………………….v.8b

iii. ……………………………………………….v.9

C. God honoured the faith of those who believe in His word but punishes unbelievers.v.10-12

D. ……………………………………………….v.13

2 LESSON OUTLINES

LESSON OUTLINE 1: HEALING IS CHILDREN’S BREAD

A. Without any doubt, the wages of sin is death and one prominent agent/vehicle of death is sickness/disease.

B. One of the reasons sin may hinder healing is that it makes it impossible for God to hear the prayer of the sinful sick who calls for healing without repenting first (Isa. 59:1-2; Matt. 15:21-26).

C. A child of God is clearly someone who has been cleaned from sin (John 1:11-12; 1 John 3:9).

i. He/she must be dead to sin and alive to the Holy Spirit.

ii. The Holy Spirit sees to it that His temple (1 Cor. 6:19) remains vitally healthy.

D. Healing is God’s children because they are cleansed from their sins and the Holy Spirit dwells in them (Rom. 8:11).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Why is divine healing meant for only believers?

LESSON OUTLINE 2: CONDITIONS FOR DIVINE HEALING

A. God’s word is forever settled (Ps. 119:89).

B. His desire is that we repent and be healed. (Ezekiel. 18:32; 33:11).

C. Through His word, God does not only heal and also delivers (Ps. 107:20. Prov. 4:20-22).

D. There are certain things that you must do to receive your healing through the word:

i. You must not negate what He has said but believe His word (Prov. 18:7; 2 Kings 4:21-26; 36-37).

ii. You must repent genuinely from your sins and be ready to live in absolute obedience to God’s command (Ps. 119:11).

iii. You must cry to God for help (Ps. 107:17-20).

iv. Be ready for your healing through a strong faith (Mark 5:25-29).

E. Divine healing can be instant (Ps. 147:15; Matt. 8:8, 13) or progressive (Luke 17:13-14; 2 Kings 5:10).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Discuss the role of faith and patience in divine healing in line with Mark 7:25-30.

SUMMARY: God is only healer of any sickness or disease. Therefore, live holy in order to enjoy divine healing.

CONCLUSION: The Lord Jesus never spoke to sickness and diseases but to the people who needed healings. Therefore, if anyone will just listen to Him and obey His instructions, such a fellow can receive His healing too. However, to receive your healing, you must agree with Him and do what is right.

EVALUATION: State five (5) necessary steps to divine healing.

CLOSING PRAYER: Father, please heal all Your children suffering from terminal diseases.

ASSIGNMENT: Mention five (5) sicknesses/diseases in the world today that medical science has not been able to cure and requires divine healing.

16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,

6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

OUTLINES

  1. HEALING IS CHILDREN’S BREAD
  2. CONDITIONS FOR DIVINE HEALING

HEALING IS CHILDREN’S BREAD

Without any doubt, the wages of sin is death and one prominent agent/vehicle of death is sickness/disease. One of the reasons sin may hinder healing is that it makes it impossible for God to hear the prayer of the sinful sick who calls for healing without repenting first (Isa. 59:1-2). From the story of the woman of Tyre and Sidon, it is clear that healing is children’s bread (Matt. 15:21-26). A child of God is clearly someone who has been cleansed from sin (John 1:11-121 John 3:9). He/she must be dead to sin and alive to the Holy Spirit who then sees to it that His temple (1 Cor. 6:19) remains vitally healthy. Healing is God’s children because they are cleansed from their sins and the Holy Spirit dwells in them (Rom. 8:11).

CONDITIONS FOR DIVINE HEALING

God’s word is forever settled (Ps. 119:89). His desire is that we repent and be healed. (Ezekiel. 18:3233:11). Through His word, God does not only heal and also delivers (Ps. 107:20). Therefore, it does not matter what your sickness or disease may be, if you listen to Him, it would go and you would be healed (Prov. 4:20-22). There are certain things that you must do to receive your healing through the word. The first is that you must not negate what He has said but believe His word (Prov. 18:72 Kings 4:21-2636-37). The second thing you must do is to repent genuinely from your sins and be ready to live in absolute obedience to God’s command (Ps. 119:11). Thirdly, cry to God for help (Ps. 107:17-20). The fourth is to be ready for your healing through a strong faith (Mark 5:25-29). Divine healing can be instant (Ps. 147:15Matt. 8:813) or progressive (Luke 17:13-142 Kings 5:10). It is equally important that children of God imbibe the culture of healthy living in order to escape being afflicted with sickness and diseases.

CONCLUSION: The Lord Jesus never spoke to sickness and diseases but to the people who needed healings. Therefore, if anyone will just listen to Him and obey His instructions, such a fellow can receive His healing too. However, to receive your healing, you must agree with Him and do what is right.

QUESTIONS:

  2. Mention four conditions for divine healing.

BIBLE TEXT: Colossians 3:5-10

5.Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

6.For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

7.In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

8..But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

9.Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

10.And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

MEMORY VERSE: Colossians 3:10 “And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him”.

LESSON AIM: To let them know the danger of shame.


*CENTRAL TRUTH: Avoid doing things that can bring shame and reproach to your life.

INTRODUCTION: Right from the story of Adam and Eve, shame has plagued man. Adam and Eve, out of shame that was brought by sin, his themselves from God. They stood guilty before God (Gen.3:10). Everyone experiences a certain amount of shame over sins committed in the past. But the good news is that for every believer who struggles with feelings of shame and regret, there is great comfort in Romans 8:1  “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”.

8. Teenagers to mention more.

DISCUSSION: Discuss relevant and day to day living examples of how some emotions can accompany shame.

INVITATION/APPLICATION: God can take away every shame and reproach in your life. Call upon Him today.

CONCLUSION: The Samaritan woman at the well had had five failed marriages, she has suffered from the comments, the whispers and the condemning looks of people around her. She felt u clean and uncomfortable. She met with Jesus when she came to draw water from the well, she experienced God’s power to break shame’s hold over her and she was set free. This wonderful experience can be yours too.

PRAYER: Father, turn my shame and reproach to glory in Jesus’ name .
