THEME: The New Creature.

MEMORY VERSE:
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
2 Corinthians 5:17.

TODAY’S TEXT:
2 Corinthians 5:18-19.
“And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
An adage in southwestern Nigeria says that; _”Although a child, can have plenty new clothes more than the adults, but cannot have rags like the adults.”_ Dear friend, the truth is that, rags are from the past life, while new things evolve with new season and the time of life. However, before the new ones surface, there are old ones; which is by now no longer fitting, outdated, messed up and invalid through sin. Thus the way we were outside Jesus, while in Jesus, we possess the newness of life in Christ Jesus.
Meanwhile, Apostle Paul reminds us of God’s magnanimous love towards us, for not imputing our trespasses against us, but He reconcile with us in Christ Jesus. Who suffered and bore our sins upon Himself, in exchange for righteousness.
A new creature is God’s handmade, recreated in Jesus with a change in character and conduct. And in the spirit of the Lord, he acts upon new principles, by new rules, with great expectations among new people, a generation birthed with the blood of Jesus Christ.
In conclusion, the old man is done with, Satan and sinfulness are put under the feet of a new creature through the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Beloved, don’t forget that a believer is created anew, his heart is not merely set right, but a new heart is given to him. May God create a new heart in you today in Jesus name. Amen.

God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
Be prepared.

DAILY CONFESSION:
I am a new creature, transformed, redefined and redeemed through the blood of Lamb.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, grant me the grace to remain in righteousness. And create in me a new heart, help me to draw souls out of hell into your heavenly kingdom in Jesus name. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”
Amos 3:7.

TODAY’S TEXT:
Genesis 18:18-19.
Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.”

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
In the last part of this series, we saw Joseph’s fulfillment of destiny through divine revelation of what the future holds for him. And all that concerns the survival of Israel’s household with the rest of the world in decades to come, which God revealed to him.
Meanwhile, the scripture has the record of God’s thought concerning Abraham saying; *”And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do.”* Although, all secrets belong to God alone, but from time to time, God never fail to reveal hidden or secret things for the benefit of the elects.
Furthermore, God in our today’s text further testify of Abraham saying; *”He will keep the way of the Lord and do justice throughout his lifetime and that he will teach his children and his household to keep the way of the Lord forever.”* Dear friend, may God grant you the grace and make it easy for you, to keep the way of the Lord in Jesus name. Amen.
Conclusively, beloved in Christ, our memory verse reveals that, the man or woman that God will reveal the secret things to, must be His servant, also must be the one, who keeps His ways and do justice without prejudice or sentiment. And do know that these principles were common to Daniel, Joseph and Abraham. May God find you worthy of knowing secret things ahead of time in Jesus name. Amen.

God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
Be prepared.

DAILY CONFESSION:
For me and my household, we shall keep the way of the Lord now and always.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, you are all knowing God, and you know me more than I know myself. Dear Lord, give me the grace to keep your ways in righteousness and to teach my household to do so in Jesus name. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

“And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words. And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.”

In the opening of this series, we observed that the whole world is plain before God. And that He has the right to reveal the secret things, to whosoever He chose to reveal it to, especially those, who are in line with HIS set standards or agenda. That Daniel, a lover of God, knowing that nothing is hidden from God, and God honour him to the extent that He revealed another man’s dream to him, in order to save his life and that of his colleagues.
Meanwhile, Joseph’s brothers could not understand Joseph’s dreams, as a secret from the Lord. They merely saw it as a purported projection from him, due to the special likeness or treat from their father or as plan to dominate and reign over them.
More so, in Genesis 45:7 Joseph finally declared the secret that God revealed to him long time ago saying; *”And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.”* Beloved, the Alpha and the Omega, who knows the secret things about the future, revealed the secret of the future to Joseph through dreams of greatness with holiness, in order to preserve the lives of the Israelites and that of the whole world. Therefore, how firmly that which is revealed unto you
Finally, for anyone who wants to go up in greatness, must be ready for persecutions, hatred and obstacles. But when you rely on God’s support and assistance, surely He will show forth and take you to your next stage in life. May the good Lord vindicate you and grant you victory over the enemies of your greatness in Jesus name. Amen.

God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.

Be prepared.

THEME: The Rich Fool.

MEMORY VERSE:
“He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.”
Proverbs 28:8.

TODAY’S TEXT:
1 Timothy 6:9-10.
“But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
Yesterday, we considered the rich and the fool, we saw that the rich can be wise or foolish. While a fool is someone that deny God’s existence, rich or poor.
Meanwhile, Paul explained that on the path of greatness, there are temptations and snares awaiting those that desire riches. He opined that many foolish and hurtful lusts leads to men’s destruction and perdition.
Furthermore, brother Paul emphasize that the love of money is the root of all evil. Although, *”Money answers all things,”* (Ecclesiastes 10:19b) but when you covet it, sorrow will set in and faithfulness will turn faithlessness.
The rich fool is that man or woman that failed to help the destitute and indigents around him. For instance, The man whose gate Lazarus was laid daily (Luke 16:20). And the man that build a bigger barn, because of his increase, but died the day he set to enjoy it.(Luke 12:19-21)
In conclusion, Solomon announce that, “A man or woman who increases his substance through exorbitant interest rate and unjust gain, will not enjoy it, but only gather it for those, who will pity and help the poor. May you not be a rich fool in Jesus name. Amen.

God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.

Be prepared.

THEME: The Rich And The Fool.

MEMORY VERSE:
“When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.”
Ecclesiastes 5:4.

TODAY’S TEXT:
Jeremiah 17:10-11.
“I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.”

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
In the last edition, we considered the wise and the poor. And to be wise is to be full of experience, having wisdom, knowledge and understanding of human endeavors. While to be poor, is to lack money, position, influence and be socially behind, but may be full of virtues as the case may be.
Meanwhile, the Rich is the one that is well to do, having financial abundance, he or she may be wise or foolish as the case may be. Do know that, a Fool is one that denied God’s existence, he may be rich or poor as the case may be.
However, God in His word says through prophet Jeremiah that, _”He searches the heart of man, to give according to his ways and fruit of his doing.”_ This implies that, whatever you do, the motive behind it and the results of your actions, will be the bases for your reward before God.
More so, God reveals to us that, *”getting riches in wrong way is dangerous to our destiny and harmful to our destination in life. For it simply cut off or cut short ones life.”*
Finally, king Solomon in one of his sermons, encourage us to fulfill our vows to God, for failure to do so, is tantamount to foolishness. May you not be foolish before God in Jesus name. Amen.

God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
Be prepared.

I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people. Psalms 116:14.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, according your words in Proverbs 8:18 which says, “Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.” Oh Lord! Grant me durable riches, honour and righteousness all the days of my life in Jesus name. Amen.

The Wise And The Poor.

DATE: Tuesday, October 15, 2019.

THEME: The Wise And The Poor.

MEMORY VERSE:
“Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.”
Ecclesiastes 9:18.

TODAY’S TEXT:
Proverbs 28:6-7.
“Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich. Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.”

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
Yesterday, we considered the poor and the righteous, we observe that the poor and the righteous will always have a place in God’s heart. Although, one can be poor and be righteous, or rich and still remain righteous. Meaning that there are poor righteous people and there are rich righteous people also.
Meanwhile, Ecclesiastes 9:14-16 tells us a story saying, *”There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it: Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man. Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.”* That is, to be wise is to be knowledgeable and full of experience in most human endeavors. As you can see from the story above, it was the poor wise man that delivered the city by defeating the great evil king. But it saddens the heart, that afterward no one remember him, a wise person don’t fight or shout over gift, reward or position, rather he or she prefers silence and always contented.
Conclusively, our memory verse emphasize that, _’Wisdom is better than the weapons of war and sin destroys much good.’_ And also our today’s text declares that, *”Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways…”* May you continue to walk in uprightness of heart now and always in Jesus name. Amen.

God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
Be prepared.

DAILY CONFESSION:
The fear of the Lord, is the beginning of wisdom.

PRAYER POINT:
Gracious Father, please fill me wisdom, knowledge and understanding. That I may be of great help to my community and the world at large in Jesus name. Amen.

The Poor And The Righteous.

THE NARROW WAY DAILY DIGEST

DATE: Monday, October 14, 2019.

THEME: The Poor and The Righteous.

MEMORY VERSE:
“For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.”
Deuteronomy 15:11.

TODAY’S TEXT:
Psalms 112:7-9.
“He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies. He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.”

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
In the last edition, we considered the wealthy and the wicked. Where we arrived at a point, that to be wealthy and wicked is a thing of the heart, for a man who is not operating under God’s grace through Christ Jesus. And that wickedness can not make you to be truly wealthy, except for hard work and the blessings of the Most High. For there are many wicked people, who are very poor and many wealthy people who are righteous.
However, a poor is someone who is with little or no possessions or money. A person of low quality, and socially deficient in a specific way, such as influence and resources. A righteous is someone who is free from sin or guilt, one that is morally sound and virtuous. These two groups of people have a special place in the heart of God.(Amos 2:6)
Meanwhile, one can be righteous and be poor or poor and remain righteous. While our today’s text talks about the blessings of the righteous, such as boldness, fixed hope, established blessings, fulfillment, endurance and exalted with honour. For he or she that genuinely gives to the poor is righteous before God and man.
Finally, the scripture open our hearts to one major difference between the wicked and the righteous saying; *”The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.”* (Proverbs 29:7) while the wicked ignore the poor, the righteous embrace them genuinely. May you have the grace to embrace the poor and the needy around you in Jesus name. Amen.

God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
Be prepared.

DAILY CONFESSION:
I will not faint or fail in my responsibility to the indigents.

PRAYER POINT:
Father of all, you are too faithful to fail me. Help me with grace to be who you want me to be, to all that cross my path in life in Jesus name. Amen.

Yours in Christ,
B. J. Folorunsho.

The Wealthy And The Wicked.

THE NARROW WAY DAILY DIGEST

DATE: Friday, October 11, 2019.

THEME: The Wealthy And The Wicked.

MEMORY VERSE:
“God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living.”
Psalms 52:5.

TODAY’S TEXT:
Psalms 52:2-4.
“Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp rasor, working deceitfully. Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.”

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
Today, we want to compare and contrast between the Wealthy and the wicked. Are all the wealthy wicked? Or are all the wicked wealthy? Or are there things or aspect of wealth that brings about wickedness? Or are there something in wickedness that brings about wealth?
Meanwhile, to be wealthy is possessing financial wealth; riches and have all that money can buy. Also, It is having abundant in quality or quantity. While, to be wicked is to be evil or mischievous by nature; such as hardhearted, stingy, selfish, frivolous, and so on.
However, to be wealthy has nothing to do with wickedness and to be wicked does not guarantee wealth. For the scripture says in Proverbs 10:22, “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” This implies that God’s blessings is full of joy and a joyful heart is a good heart, which cannot be wicked.
Moreover, wickedness is not synonymous to wealth, and neither is wealth to wickedness. Although wealth can becloud the heart of a man or woman, who does not operate under the grace of God in Christ Jesus and by extension become wicked. If you observe you have a bit of wickedness, come to Jesus for cleansing today, for tomorrow maybe too late. (Luke 12:20)
Conclusively, the creator certainly created all things good and beautifully well, but the enemy trickily sow wickedness in the heart of man. If you are rich, be good and show love to the poor around you. To be wicked is to fail to help, when you can be of help. May you be wealthy and not be wicked in Jesus name. Amen.

God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
Be prepared.

DAILY CONFESSION:
I refuse to be wicked. And today, I receive great wealth from the Lord.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, remove from me, any iota of wickedness. And help me Lord, to have great increase in all that I lay my hands upon in Jesus name. Amen

Yours in Christ,
B. J. Folorunsho.
