Meanwhile, before our Lord Jesus Christ was revealed to the sinful world, our memory verse expressly stated in Genesis 6:5,
_”And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”_ Invariably, a heart without Jesus is desperately wicked. His thoughts are full of all kinds evil imaginations.

And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ancle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.”

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
A popular adage says, “Knowledge is power.” The truth is that the more knowledge one acquired, the more empowered you will be. Knowledge serves as fuel, that propel ability to manifest.
Many years ago, I was paired with a pastor to go on evangelism. On getting to a street, we met three people in a shop, all bears Christian names, after the greetings, my Pastor then asked them, “Do you know Jesus?” They quickly responded, “Yes.” If I were the one then, I will simply pray for them and left. But the pastor quickly asked them, “How much of HIM do you know or do you know Jesus personally?
Notwithstanding, their answers shows that they were all church goers, with little or no knowledge of Jesus. And the Pastor took his time to talk about Jesus, he reintroduce them to Jesus and charge them to ensure daily personal relationship with Jesus.
Furthermore, our memory verse expressly stated, *”Study to show yourself approved unto God* Meaning: Study births knowledge, and knowledge produces Ability to manifest inherent potentials.

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
What is a doughnut? It is a dessert made of pastry having an eclipse shape, with a hole in the middle of it.

TODAY’S MESSAGE:

“And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel, and said unto them, Why are ye come out to set your battle in array? am not I a Philistine, and ye servants to Saul? choose you a man for you, and let him come down to me. If he be able to fight with me, and to kill me, then will we be your servants: but if I prevail against him, and kill him, then shall ye be our servants, and serve us.”

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
Yesterday, we discussed about the evil plot of Harman, against the Jews. He deceived the king Ahasuerus to believe that they were evil and should be destroyed and a date was fixed for their extermination. But God stepped in to vindicate them and their enemies died in their place.
Similarly, 1 Samuel 17:16 says; “And the Philistine drew near morning and evening, and presented himself forty days.” For good Forty days, the enemy taunt the Israelites, and make them to believe that they are worthless, clueless and that they are only good as slaves. Wellbeloved, the agony may seems unending, Satan may buffet day and night, but be sure that your victory is certain, for help is around the corner.
Notwithstanding, our today’s text further revealed the war strategy of the Philippines against Israelites. They systematically brought up a giant and ask Israelites to present someone to fight the giant and declared that whosoever win, will take the other nation as slaves. Knowing full well that, their giant has been unbeatable warrior for so long.
Furthermore, our memory verse expressly stated that, *”And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were sore afraid.”* For to kill him, was like mission Impossible. Sorrow overshadowed the men of Israel and no one was bold to challenge Goliath to a fight.
In conclusion, to shame the enemies, God send a youth, with a mission to kill the all time warrior. For 1 Samuel 17:51 says; “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.” The sorrow of the Israelites was turned to joy, at the sound of their victory over Goliath.

DAILY CONFESSION:
My head is lifted up, the enemies will not rule over me.

The copy of the writing for a commandment to be given in every province was published unto all people, that they should be ready against that day.”

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
In the opening of this series, we saw a gloomy scenerio, in which a woman whose husband is late, was on the procession of burying her only son. Her anguish was high to the heavens, although, sympathises were all around her, but what she needs is a compassion from the above. To glory of God, she got it and her sorrow was turned to joy.
Beloved in Christ, God is still in the business of turning sorrow to joy. Our today’s text tells us of Haman’s evil plot against the Jews in Babylon, in which he determined to exterminate the Jewish Nation on a particular day.
However, the information was sent to all the constituted authority in land, to prepare and carry out the supposed order from the king. The agony of the Jew was enormous, and been slaves in Babylon, they cried day and night, for
salvation seems to be impossible.
In conclusion, the scripture says: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalms 46:1) Unknown to them, that God had prepared a way out for them. And the supposed day of mourning, God turned it to a day of celebration, rejoicing and yearly festival. And their enemies died in their place. May God overturn the wicked plan against you, and shame your enemies totally in Jesus name. Amen.

God bless you. *Jesus is coming very soon.* Be prepared.
