SEPTEMBER 18, 2017 – JESUS: THE TRUE VINE (John 15:1-7)

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5 It is important to understand that, the bible uses a lot of parables to buttress a point. Jesus used parables to teach His disciples and the multitudes secrets of the kingdom of God.

I have received a command to bless; God has blessed, and I cannot change it. No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel. The Lord their God is with them; the shout of the King is among them. – Numbers 23:20, 21.  The benefits that believers receive from being under the shadow of The Almighty God cannot be overemphasized.  Being under the watchful eyes of the King of the whole earth, whose eyes see all things at all times, this is a great blessing.

AUGUST 31, 2017 – LIVING WITH THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF GOD’S PRESENCE.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10 The omnipresence attribute of the Almighty God implies that He is ever present in all things.

Therefore, living our daily lives being conscious that God is everywhere at every time, will help us to be mindful of the things we do, things we say and the way we conduct ourselves. Living in the consciousness of God’s presence means having the understanding and...
