  • Prophetical Promise for the Month of September, 2020

    The promise for September is that God of Israel will be your rereward. This is an exciting promise to mediate throughout this month and long after and in this excerpt Pastor Paul Dawson reveals that this promise can be made sure only through the anointing. And he emphasizes that it is very essential that God gives us a revelation about the anointing. God will certainly protect us from the back if we do our job correctly. And what is our job? Read along to find out the job of every believer and how that moves God to fulfill His promises in your life. Isaiah 52:12 - For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rereward. The promise for the month is very interesting that the God of Israel will be your rereward, which means that the God of Israel will protect you from behind and that from the back,God will protect you as given in many translations. This month, maybe a lot of people will be hit from behind, so what is the meaning of being hit from behind? It means being hit when you are not aware of being hit and when you can do nothing. For example, when you are walking and suddenly a car or somebody hits you from the behind, you will not know what had happened till you get up from that damage. This makes this verse very important. Because all of us know that the virus is hitting us from the back and unemployment is hitting from the back for so many people. Suddenly they announce about the checking out of jobs and so many people are caught in a problem. That is the meaning of being hit behind the back. Being hit from the front means anyone can prepare themselves. You can see and you can resist. The promise very Cleary says the God of Israel will be your protection from the back. This is an amazing promise and this promise can be sure only through the anointing. That is why those who do not know the anointing will be going through tough days. Because if you do not know about the anointing you cannot receive the anointing. And if you don’t receive the anointing whatever should happen will happen. So it’s very essential that God gives us a revelation about the anointing. And we need to be thankful to God because he is telling us he is going to protect us from the back. Our job is to do what the Lord desires. We have to make sure that we are doing what the Lord desires, and God is focusing on eternity and our job is to make our calling and election sure. And anyone who does not make his calling and election sure, there is every chance for him to fall. We have to go all out to what is pleasing to the Lord. 2 Peter 1:13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; The job of the apostles was stirring up the minds of the people. They were not talking about financial breakthrough and healing. They were not even talking about protection. 1Peter 3:10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Peter was not against loving life and seeing good days. In the above verse we find him not saying let someone go for healing and deliverance meeting; let him go to this great prophet. Otherwise, he was talking about being a partaker of divine nature in order to see good days. There are so many people who are not experiencing the bible even after listening to so many teaching is because they are not making their calling and election sure. This is the main reason why people are not experiencing breakthrough in their lives. The problem is still we have not understood the word of God. We never understood what the apostles spoke. We need to be wise. Grace gives us a chance to repent and come in line with the plan of God. Luke 13:6-9 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down. It is the father God who is speaking. Father God says cut it down. But Lord Jesus says let it alone this year also. Grace gives a chance, it does not tell you to keep on doing what God doesn’t like. Which is never mentioned in the bible – maybe it is the human bible. It’s hard to believe how believers can get brainwashed with these wrong teachings. We need to go into the bible become a partaker of divine nature, otherwise, we may lose so many things and cannot guarantee what else that can take place. So God is telling you I’m going to protect you from behind. That is my job. But your job is to become a partaker of the divine nature; your job is to make you’re calling and election sure. If you don’t do your job – how will God do his job? If God doesn’t do his job it’s going to be a problem for you. We need to be 100 per cent sure. These last days will be days of great power. Daniel 11:32 But the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. God wants you to do exploits. When darkness and gross darkness covers, you will do miracles. Get ready to get the word of God fulfilled. And nobody should be left behind. We can easily find out whether we are going to be left behind or not through our life itself. From the way God is moving in our lives itself is a sign. We can find our status through the way God is moving in our lives. We should make sure that we don’t come under the many, which will come and argue with God that we were in your presence. God wants you to be blessed. #promiseofthemonth #september #promise #prophetical #rereward #glory #rearward #protection #covid #exploits #miracles #pauldawson #lightofeternity

  • God's Two Witnesses

    We are living in the end times. These are perilous times and it is highly important that we prepare ourselves. Our God is love impersonified, that is why he has already revealed all that is to come in his Word, well ahead of time so that we are not caught unawares. He wants his children to escape the days of tribulation and hence he has revealed how terrible it is going to be as a warning, so that we will toil to be with him in eternity, without seeing the days of tribulation. In every revelation about the future, we would be able to see God’s immense wisdom. It also shows that God is in complete control of everything in this earth and in the heavens. If you would like to get a sneak peek into the wisdom of God and how he has planned and executed everything from the beginning of time, then you should listen to this message. We are in the last days and God has revealed the future to his children through his word. This message is a warning for God’s children to be prepared. Revelation 11: 3 - And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. God says, I will give power. If you notice, it is in future tense. It has not yet been given but it will be given in the future. What will be given? Power. To whom will the power be given? To the two witnesses of God. We need to understand that two witnesses of God will appear in this world suddenly. God calls them as “My witnesses”. Always God gives power to those whom he calls as “His own”. What is the job of these two witnesses of God? They shall prophesy and testify. In Revelation 11: 7 we see that they will testify. They are very amazing prophets because it is mentioned that they will prophesy for 1260 days, which adds up to 3.5 years. What is their attire when they prophesy on earth? The Bible says that they will be clothed in sackcloth. Revelation 11: 3 - And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. This infers that the content of their prophecy is not going to be pleasant to our ears. As we all know, whenever people are clothed in sackcloth, the situation always pertains to crying, mourning and lamentation. Revelation 11: 5 - And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. This is going to happen when the time comes. God reveals the plight of the people who would try to hurt them. Who are these prophets? Revelation 11: 4 - These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. We know that murdering or killing someone is prohibited in the Ten Commandments. In Ephesians, we see that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood. Contradicting all these, we see in this case that if any man tries to hurt them or kill them, he will be killed. They don't need any assistance in killing their enemies. Fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. Many modern teachings reveal that the fire would be an AK47 that they would be armed with. However, it is not true. Just as the Bible says, they will have the power to produce fire from their mouth. Such is the kind of self defence given to them. What happens when the government tries to hurt them? They are rendered powerless before them, therefore they cannot do anything. This proves that God is in absolute control. Man with all the advanced technology and even nuclear bombs cannot prevail against these two witnesses. They even have the power to shut heaven and stop rain. Revelation 11: 6 - These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. If we look into it deeply and think who dealt with fire, we will understand that it was Elijah. Elijah was the prophet who had power to bring down fire from heaven and he even stopped rain. James 5: 17 - Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. Revelation 11: 6 - These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. Here also we see that heavens would be shut for the 1260 days when these prophets will be prophesying. There will be no rain for 3.5 years since these prophets would have the authority to shut the heavens. God can give his power to anyone. They will also have the power to turn water into blood and release all sorts of plagues upon the earth. People will be terrified at them because they will be empowered by God. Similarly, Jesus could not be arrested or harmed in any way when he scrambled all the shops in the synagogue. Twice he did it but they couldn't even touch him. Why? God is in control. He can do what he wants to, on planet earth. These two prophets will have the power to smite the earth with any kind of plagues upon the people of the earth and to change the water into blood. What opinion will the people of the earth have about these two prophets? Revelation 11: 10 - Because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. This statement reveals that their power was not just confined to Israel, but to all or many nations. Exodus 7: 20 - And Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. Exodus 9: 14 - For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth. It is similar to what happened during the time of Moses. During the time of Moses, these incidents happened only when needed, however, during the time of these two prophets, it would be continuous for 3.5 years. Just the two of them against the whole earth and none could touch them for 3.5 years. None of us should be on earth during this time of torment. They were just two in number, and did not have any followers or bodyguards, but still no one could touch them. Revelation 11: 7 - And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. Once they are done with their testimony, the beast who ascends from the bottomless pit will war against them and kill them. It's impossible for a man to die twice. According to the Bible, two people did not die from the Biblical times. They were Enoch and Elijah. According to the Bible, it is appointed for man to die once. Even Jesus Christ died when he came as a man to earth. After their ministry is completed only, the beast will be given power to war against them. After the completion of the 1260 days only they could be killed. Jesus Christ also ministered on earth for 3.5 years. Revelation 11: 8, 9 - And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. This is very interesting because, when the Apostle John wrote this Book, there was no television or Aeroplane or any such technology. There is no way, all the people of the earth could see something like this. Now it is feasible because of the inventions. Whichever channel people turn to, this would be the News, enabling all the people of the earth to witness it. This could be the reason why God enabled the invention of Television, satellites etc. Once they are killed all the people of the earth will rejoice and would not bury them but would prefer to see their body decay on the streets itself. Revelation 11: 10 - And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. God will not allow their bodies to be buried. Here again God is in complete control. He will make the people to fulfil his plan without even realising it. Revelation 11: 11 - And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. After 3.5 days, the Spirit of life from God will enter them and they will come back to life. This also will be witnessed by all the people of the earth. They will be terrified. Revelation 11: 12 - And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. Then there will be a voice from heaven asking them to come up and they will ascend into heaven, with their enemies watching. They will ascend the same way as Jesus did post resurrection. All this proves that God is in absolute control. In the past, he allowed the people of Sodom and Gomorrah to do as they liked. Even today, people behave as they like, and God is quiet about it. Just because God is quiet, it doesn't mean that he approves what you do. He never approves anything that is wrong. That's why we need to understand what God approves. Just because nothing serious happened to you, don't think that God approves of all your wrong doings. It would be a costly mistake, don’t take chances. We need to understand what our God approves. God moves according to his wisdom and understanding. Who is the God you serve? Job 9: 10 - Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number. Job 5: 9 - Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number: If you are wise, you will learn what God approves and the things that please him. Aren’t you supposed to be in peace with such a great God? Well think about it and act wisely. The highlights of today’s message are; God is in complete control, He allows people to live and act as they like, although he is in control. He does it with a plan and a purpose. We live only once, so do not waste your time. Time once gone never comes back. Therefore redeem the time and be blessed. God bless you. #godstwowitnesses #twowitness #witness #endofdays #lastdays #elijah #moses #antichrist #jesus #endtimes

  • God's will and Corona

    New Normal Series God created a perfect world filled with his goodness, according to his will. Why did God create everything? He created everything for his purpose. God intended man’s life to be abundant and without any lack. However, the current situation does not imply this reality. Today’s world is full of troubles, sickness, lack and chaos. Though this is the case, God’s children have His promises to help them escape the troubles of this world. Why then, are God’s children suffering the same way as others do? Do the promises in the Word of God still hold good for his children? Well, God is the same, yesterday, today and forever. His Word has the same power, as it did, ages ago. He who has promised is faithful and just to fulfill it. Then where is the disconnect? Where are we going wrong that all the promises are not fulfilled in our lives? Just like how a pilot needs to learn how to fly his plane using the manual, and also the Do’s and the Dont’s, we need to know how to make the promises of God work for us from the Word of God. The will of God concerning you, is that you prosper, be in health, and not lack any good thing. That's what God has promised you, but to inherit these promises, you need to do something. What you are expected to do is coupled along with these promises. Most of us ignore this part. Now would you like to know how to identify them? Listen to this message in which the man of God has rightly divided the promises and presented them, so that you can identify what is expected of you and fulfill them. As a result, you can inherit the promises of God and stay blessed. God created this world. Why did God make everything? Proverbs 16:4 The Lord hath made all things for himself: Ephesians 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: Who is our God? Our God is the one who makes everything work according to his own plan. You need to understand who our God is. He does not work to fulfill your plan but his will. According to his plan, He determined that he would create man and give him his own will-power. It was God’s plan, that man should have his own will power and that he should use it to decide what he is supposed to do in this world. However, if man’s will contradicts the plan of God, then he will not have the Power of God working in his favour. Hence, man should be very careful to find the will of God and align himself to it. That is when he can be assured of the Power of God working in his favour. In today’s scenario, we see that the coronavirus is spreading to many nations throughout the world and victimising as many people as possible. It is attacking the righteous and the wicked. It is weakening the defense system of the body and killing many people. An invisible war is on. Is it the plan of God that man should be attacked and overpowered by the coronavirus? Let us analyse, what the will of God is, for a believer concerning the Coronavirus situation. It is spreading quickly and people are caught unawares. It looks so powerful. Do not stick to what you know but analyse and understand what the scripture says in this regard. You need to be careful that tradition does not block the real understanding of the Word of God. You need to be very clear about the will of God, otherwise you cannot have the faith to make the right moves. What does the Scripture say? Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee. What is the name of your God? I am the Lord that healeth thee. The Hebrew name, Jehovah Rapha has been derived from this verse. God says that he would not allow any of the diseases that he sent upon the Egyptians to come upon you. Most people just refer to this portion of the scripture, which says - He is Jehovah Rapha, and He will not allow any of the diseases of the Egyptians to come upon me. You are an Israelite. Do you want to know how? We all know that Israelites are the seed of Abraham. Galatians 3: 29, And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. According to the verse, they that are Christ’s are the seed of Abraham. What a privilege it is to know that God will not allow any of the diseases of the Egyptians to come upon us. How comforting it is to hear this promise of God? God is our healer. We are so happy and content with the later part of the verse. However, many fail to understand that the promise mentioned in the later part of the verse, applies only to those who fulfil the first part of the verse. Here, God expresses His two desires or will. God desires that you should diligently hearken unto his voice and observe to do all His commandments. God desires that you should not suffer any of the diseases that came upon the Egyptians, for He is the Lord that healeth thee. However, the second part is interlinked with the first part. It would result from you, fulfilling the first part. It is you who should fulfill the first part. If you implement the first part, then God will ensure that He does His part. You do your bit and then God will fulfil his promise. First part, which is “If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes,” is your role, something that you need to do. The second part of the verse (I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.) being the will of God, makes it pretty clear that it is not the will of God for Coronavirus to affect the children of God. When does the second part come into action? When you do the first part without any deviation. If you live your life casually, without understanding the first part, and then expect the second part to come to effect, it is not going to happen. You have to be very careful and you need real faith. We are not dealing with something ordinary, but something highly dangerous. Within two and a half months, over 2.3 million people have been affected. You need to have strong faith. This is not just to deal with the Coronavirus, but also the after effects of the Coronavirus, like layoffs, economic recession etc. You should not be affected by all this. Let’s see what the Word of God says about it. Deuteronomy 4:40 Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, for ever. This verse clearly expresses God’s heart for you and your children. He doesn't want you and your children to be affected by the Coronavirus and its after effects. He doesn't want you to be hit by economic problems. Even in Deuteronomy 4: 40, we see that the first part of the verse needs to be understood and fulfilled by us to inherit the second part of the verse. Today, many selectively choose only the second part of the verse and ignore the first part, which is very important. Let’s see another verse, Deuteronomy 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! In this verse too we find two desires of God. God wants you to have a heart which fears the Lord and keeps his commandments always. God wants it to be well with you and with your children always. Here too it is evident that the fulfillment of the second desire of God is purely dependent on you keeping the first desire. You need to first have a heart that fears God and keeps his commandments always. Then the Lord will make sure it is well with you and your children. It is very critical that we do our part without any deviation because it results in supernatural protection. Let us see some more examples on these lines. Psalm 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. Here is God’s will for you, which says no evil shall befall you, neither shall Coronavirus or any other plague come near your dwelling. God’s power is working to fulfill his will. Many of us take this part for granted, however, we need to understand that this is the second part of the will of God. The first part, which is our responsibility, is found in the previous verse. Psalm 91:9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; We need to ensure that we make the Lord our refuge and the the most High God our habitation. When we do our part, God will engage his angels to fulfill his second will, which is divine protection from all evil. Therefore, we can relax. Malachi 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. God says that the Sun of righteousness will rise upon you with healing in his wings. Can Coronavirus or any other plague attack a person dwelling under the wings of the Sun of righteousness? However, this happens to be the second will of God in this case and there is a predecessor to it. The first will or desire of God in this case, is that you fear his name. When you fear his name, then the sun of righteousness will rise upon you with healing in his wings. You cannot change God’s nature - He is Jehovah Rapha Now let's look at similar instances in the New testament. John 5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. Here we see that Jesus healed a person who had an infirmity for thirty eight years. Jesus had a message for him, but did not convey it immediately. We see that Jesus found him in the temple later, and said to him something very important, which will ensure that his healing will be permanent. Jesus told him firmly, do not sin any further, otherwise a worse thing will come upon you. It was Grace speaking to the man. He desired that the man who received his healing should maintain it. That is why Jesus found him and conveyed the important message. It is a serious warning that Jesus gave the man who was healed. Here again two desires of Jesus are evident. God desires that the man who was impotent for thirty eight years be healed and that the healing is permanent. God does not want the man to sin anymore. The healing would be permanent only if he fulfills this desire of God. Grace always counsels us. We need to keep ourselves from sins. 1 John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. Here again, we see two things, Whosoever is born of God sinneth not, but keeps himself from sin. The wicked one cannot touch the person who is born of God and does not sin. On the contrary if a person who is born of God does not keep himself and continues in sin, then the wicked one will touch him. To deal with the current Coronavirus situation, you need to have an unshakable faith which comes from a proper understanding of the undiluted Word of God. We can substitute the current situation and get a better understanding. He that is born of God sinneth not and the wicked Coronavirus toucheth him not. First, you have to keep yourself from sin, and then God will ensure that the wicked one does not touch you. Finally, lets analyse one more verse, 3 John 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. What is the will of God here? Beloved, I wish that you prosper and be in health, which infers, that you should prosper and be free from Coronavirus. Your soul should prosper. Your soul prospering, is your duty, and when you fulfill that, God will ensure that you prosper and be in health. Now you are clear about God’s will for you. You should prosper and be in health. Your children should also be blessed. The sun of righteousness shall rise upon you with healing in his wings. You will grow like calves of the stall. It shall be well with you and with your children forever. This implies that God does not want you to be affected by Coronavirus. However, for all these to be fulfilled, you need to ensure that you fulfill your part of God’s desire. You need to ensure that your soul prospers. Only when this condition is fulfilled, will you prosper and be in health. He that is born of God sinneth not and that wicked one, the Coronavirus will not touch him or his children. Let's be thankful for the unfailing love of God. Let us therefore be mindful to keep up with our part of God’s desire, so that God will keep his promise for us. #safety #covid19 #coronavirus #preservation #wellbeing #children #soulprosperity #health #healing #promises

  • Such a Time as This

    It is high time that you recognize you are ISRAEL (Galatians 3:29) and that the Lord is pleased to bless you. No matter how the world is going on a downward spiral, the God of the good times is also the God of the bad times and you and your children are destined to increase more and more and prove to this world that you are the Incomparable people! Esther 4:14 “And who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” God created man because of his so great love and are you ready to experience his very best at all times? This global pandemic and the crisis that is following would naturally make anyone call this as a bad time, a time where people lose their rest, joy and peace and instead of which fear, confusion and depression take charge. It is a time where the fear virus tries to dominate the minds of the people they become helpless. But if you want to live as the Incomparable people then you need to understand this message and do what God expects you to do. The following are the plans of God for you and your children in the good times and the bad. The Lord doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel (Exodus 11:7) If people need to see the plan of God there has to be a manifestation. If there is no manifestation then no can see the plan of God in action. God plans to put a difference between his people and the world at the good times and the bad. And he will release his power because it’s his plan. If he does not put a difference, then you cannot experience rest joy and peace in bad times. That is why your mind should be aligned with the word of God and the plan of God. 2. That it might be well with them and with their children forever! (Deuteronomy 5:29) The word ‘forever’ means in the good times and in the bad times, and if you understand this word it is going to work for you and this word has got creative miracle power and omnipotent power. So don’t change the word of god with your mind. The bible talks about babes in Christ now is the time you learn to become like young men or fathers. How can you be unwell when God wants you to be well at all times? The word ‘Well’ means you will experience rest joy health peace victory and preservation at all times. 3. The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children. (Psalm 115:14) The word does not say you shall increase yourself, but the Lord will increase you. There is nothing known as a bad time for God. God’s time is always good and it’s his desire to increase you more and more. Which means when the world is going on a decreasing spiral you will go on an increasing spiral. Manpower and money power may shake but God’s power never shakes. And it doesn’t stop with you but involves your children too. Are you going to work for Gods plan to be fulfilled? Then don’t allow the fear virus, confusion virus and the negative virus to enter your mind and control your system. Do you know why God wants to fulfill his plan for you? And what is God pleased to do in the bad times? The prophet who had the power to curse nations and bless nations saw that it pleased the Lord to bless Israel. Balaam saw it and now it’s time you see it! #covid19 #virus #blessing #power #safety #protection #such a time

  • The New Normal - Part 1

    New Normal Series No one would have ever imagined of the things happening today. You would have never envisaged or imagined that it will happen in your generation. We have entered the new normal. We have been forced to enter the new normal. At such a time as this, one needs to act in wisdom to face the new normal life. Do you know God will make you to thrive amidst the chaos? We have entered into a phase that is unusual. Prices and the cost of living will keep shooting high. Fear and uncertainty will keep increasing. All these are oriented towards suffocating the people and this is the effect of darkness covering the people. This is where the new normal begins. God expects us to understand the times as He has got a special plan for His people. In this generation, you are God’s people. You have a special plan that is ordained by God. Do you know that this special plan has its full effect even when gross darkness covers the people? This message reveals His special plan for His people so that they experience His marvelous sustenance. You are not living for this world but you are living for eternity. How are you are going to spend eternity? You can have an idea here on earth itself. You shouldn’t take the things that happen in this world lightly. No one would have ever imagined of things happening today. You would have to envisage and you will realize that you would not have imagined that it will happen in your generation. We have entered the new normal. We have been forced to enter the new normal. At such a time as this, we should be like the children of Issachar. 1 Chronicles 12: 32 - And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment. Here we find that the children of Issachar had special skills. You need to understand the times. God expects Israel should know what they should do. You are Israel. Galatians 3: 29 - And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. God has got a special plan for His people. In this generation, you are God’s people/ you have a special plan that is ordained by God. You have to understand the plan of God and align with it. Isaiah 60: 2 - For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. The earth will be covered with darkness and gross darkness the people. This will come suddenly and you would have never expected it to come. What is the meaning of darkness? Colossians 1: 13 - Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: Darkness is the power. This extreme power will cover the people. The prophecy that is told is “it will cover the earth”. Now you can understand if this time is near. The people will find that this power is suffocating them. You will see that when the time progresses. Everybody likes liberty and freedom. The number of youth who are eligible for employment will keep on increasing and at the same time the jobs will be decreasing. Prices and the cost of living will keep shooting high. Fear and uncertainty will keep increasing. All these are oriented towards suffocating the people and this is the effect of darkness covering the people. This is where the new normal begins. Don’t you think we are living in the new normal? You will have to analyze and understand that things you didn’t expect has come into reality. In such a time as this, the new normal has begun in a certain group of people. People who are like Issachar know what to do and they will experience the new normal. When will this new normal be experienced by this group? Only when darkness covers the earth and gross darkness covers the people. Isaiah 60: 2 - For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. What should happen in the future was prophetically spoken? It says, at that time the LORD shall arise upon them and then your light has come. Isaiah 60: 1 - Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. Now you have to arise as your light has come and people are suffocating because of the darkness. When you arise, the shining will be there, because your light has come. That light is because of the glory of the LORD. But many people wait for things to happen and then act. This is a prophetic message. What will happen to this group? If you are ready, it will manifest now, else you have to do something and then it will manifest. 2 Chronicles 26: 15 - And he made in Jerusalem engines, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvelously helped, till he was strong. When will people marvel? When things that will not happen, will start to manifest. Unthinkable, unbelievable and unimaginable will start to manifest. You just pray for it and you will see that will happen. Cancer disappearing without a surgery, you having a paralytic attack and now you are totally healed. This is a marvelous thing. Blind eyes opening is a marvelous thing. You are in a pit and now you are released from the pit of debt is a marvelous thing. You are already in a path of divorce, but a reconciliation happened and then a new family appeared is a marvelous thing. How long will this help continue? Till he was strong. This is not a one-time help but will continue. Psalms 115: 14 - The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children. This is a supernatural increase. You know that there is no way by which you can increase, but you are doing so. Since the Lord increases you, you are increasing without any of your physical resources. How will the Lord do it? By the light that the LORD showers upon you. When the LORD makes His light shine upon you, the people will see it clearly. When God starts working, people will see. Genesis 39: 3 - And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand. The Bible says that the LORD was with Joseph. The Lord was invisible. But Potiphar, who serves other gods saw that the LORD was with Joseph. He saw that the LORD was with Joseph. He didn’t see intelligence, skill or education qualification. But the LORD was with him. He also saw all that God was with him and he prospered. Genesis 39: 4 - And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand. Because the master saw God was with him, Joseph found grace in his master’s sight. Joseph was a slave. He also got super promotion. When the LORD arises upon you, people can see you. Your job is to arise. If you arise, you will shine, because something has come upon you. This manifestation will begin only when this darkness covers the earth and gross darkness the people. 1 Kings 17: 16 - And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah. When did the above incident happen to Elijah? It happened when there was an extreme famine in Samaria. At that time, we find something that happened which should not have happened. Elijah & the widow woman did not have to go to market for food. This meal kept on multiplying and multiplying. It was fresh and coming daily from the store house in heaven. Every day they were getting fresh food. The invisible hand of the LORD suddenly manifested and all could see. In the time of famine, they saw. It is supernatural sustenance, whether they are working or not working, their needs will be met supernaturally. You have not seen God and hence you are thinking Him low. He is a God of miracles, and He will go to any extent to show His power. Supernatural sustenance is the characteristic. Are you read for the new normal? Whether you are ready or not, you must face the new normal. This new normal you are facing is not decided by you. Ezekiel 34: 25 - And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods. You will dwell in safety in your dwelling place. Evil beasts like coronavirus, bacteria, germs, evil, failure will be missing in your life. Because God will make it cease from your land. He will make you to dwell in safety. The LORD will be shining upon you. The LORD will shine upon you. Marvelously helped Supernatural increase in the the midst of extreme decrease Supernatural miraculous sustenance The LORD will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land and cause to dwell in safety All these things shall manifest when the LORD shall arise upon you Isaiah 60: 2 - For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. For those who are totally devoted to God, this will happen.. Isaiah 60: 3 - And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. It was mentioned as “kings” not king. This will manifest for those who do exactly devoted to GOD. You will not go to the kings, they will come to the brightness of your rising. If you want this bright light to be seen upon you, then you must completely understand the plan of God and work for it. Why will the kings come? Because of the brightness. Gentiles can come to thy light, but kings can come only when there is a brightness in your light and not simply light. God will make you to thrive amidst the chaos. Thriving in the midst of chaos. When everybody is looking for help, you will be experiencing marvelous sustenance. #thriveamidstchaos #thrive #newnormal #corona #safety #times #understandingtimes #eternity #blessings #wisdom #darkness #secondcoming #last days

  • Diet Change

    Physical pressures are handled by strengthening the physique. Similarly, spiritual strength is gained by adopting a strong Word diet. Pastor Paul Dawson in this sermon suggests a diet change to counter the onslaught of life’s numerous pressures. He focusses on building super strong faith and not becoming a casualty of war. It is time for a diet change. We must have super strong faith. The apostles were also interested in building the faith of people. The apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 2:24 says, “Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.” The first thing that happens to you when you become a believer is that your heart is filled with the joy of salvation. The apostles are helpers of your joy; they want you to be filled with joy. In 1 John 4:4, John also says the same thing, “And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.” They are concerned about the joy of those who stand in faith. Not everyone can stand in times of adversity and not be knocked down. Only those who have strong faith will not become a casualty. Satan attempts to knock down people in order to destroy the joy from their hearts. Often we see that as life progresses, suddenly somethings happen. Suddenly we are under attack. In Matthew 7:25 we see, “And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.” We notice that when the rains descended, the house managed to stand but then the floods came. The attacks didn’t stop, for soon after the stormy winds blew and beat upon the house. Yet the house did not fall. What made the house stand? The Word of God says that it was founded upon a rock. What we learn is that we should have super strong faith. When the winds keep blowing and beating against you, if you fall or are shaken then your joy will disappear. The apostles are the helpers of your joy. Their focus is to build super strong faith in you. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God”, according to Romans 10:17. That is how faith is built. Faith is made strong by listening to the deep teachings of God; by being fed with the solid meat of the Word of God. In 1 Corinthians 3:2 we read about those who are being regularly fed with milk - “ I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.” These are those who can not eat meat. The apostles were feeding the people of God and fulfilling their role as helpers of their joy. Yet there were unable to eat solid meat. There are others of whom it is said in Hebrews 5:14, “But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” These were people who had strong discerning abilities and exercised them. Paul knew the danger of continuous feeding on milk. He knew that the milk drinkers wouldn’t be able to stand when the evil day approaches. He chides the people in Hebrews 5:12, “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.” Those who were to be teachers, were still struggling with the basic principles. What do we understand from this? The onslaught of the enemy can not be withstood by those who don’t know even the basics and continue to regularly drink only milk. Some basics in which many still falter are – don’t sin, come to church regularly, be holy, repent, don’t look at your cell phones while in church, don’t yield to the lusts of the flesh and so forth. Imagine a 8th month baby still on a diet of milk, that will be a matter of concern for the parents. If this child grows to 2 years and then 5 years and continues to drink only milk, there is a problem. The same child at 15 and then 18 years of age, has not changed his diet. He is on only milk. Milk by itself is not bad or poisonous but how can this person’s body develop completely or be strong with only milk? Similarly, in order to withstand the onslaught of life’s pressures, we need to have a diet change. We must build super strong faith by eating solid meat. Remember the house mentioned in Mathew 7:27, “And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” God does not stop the rain, the floods or even the wind because He wants you to grow. He sends His helpers to feed you so that you will grow strong. It is only by faith that you can stand. Jesus Himself told Peter, “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.” (Luke 22:31-32). He expected Peter to have strong faith. We must shift from milk drinking to meat eating. We must change our faith to super strong faith. To start us on the process, I have a faith booster for you. It is found in 2 Corinthians 1:21-22, “Now He which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.” There are three important points mentioned here. Firstly, we are established in Christ. To be established means to not be shaken. God Himself makes us to stand firm. Secondly, we are anointed by God. Thirdly, we are sealed by Him. To understand the meaning of being sealed by Him, we look at how kings in the olden days sealed things. The king’s horses were sealed which meant they were for special service and were owned by the king. Everyone could see they belonged to the king. The decree of King Darius was sealed which displayed his authority. Thus being sealed, shows ownership. Being sealed also protects us against tampering and attacks. The seal of the Holy Spirit upon us shows a glimpse of the so great salvation that we have received. Even the enemy is afraid to touch a sealed person. This is not the seal of a Government, it is the seal of the King of kings and the Lord of lords. The enemy know you are established with the anointing of God and are sealed by the Holy Spirit. The question is do you know this truth? If you know this deep truth that you are sealed, then you will adhere to 1 John 5:18 - “We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.” Ephesians 4:30 also says, “And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.” So we must be careful not to sin and grieve the Spirit of God. God knows everything. He has planned for everything. Luke 10:19 – “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.” He will ensure that no evil shall touch you. Eat the strong meat of the Word of God. Act in super strong faith. #dietchange #strongmeat #moveon #superstrongfaith #anointed #healed #established #helpersofjoy #faith #strongfaith #strongspirit

  • Mastering your emotional world

    God created man with emotions. This man who was created with emotions, suddenly finds that his life does not go in the way which he desires. Everybody wants a good life and they want to be happy and satisfied. But if we observe our lives, it is full of ups and downs, twists and turns and full of unexpected surprises. The odds are stacked against us. During these circumstances, do you know it is essential to keep your emotions under control? Do you know why God is keeping you alive in this world? God keeps you in this world and is giving you these days so that you work towards perfection. But at the same time, there are certain things within us that prevent us from moving towards perfection and live as saints. Each and every one of us has an internal emotional world which others are not aware of and very often we ourselves are not clear of this internal emotional world that is within us. If this emotions within us is not properly handled, it will not only impact us but also will defile many others. Do you know God will not be happy with us if you are being the reason for causing many others to get defiled? Many of us may think, “Why is my faith lacking?” All of us know that God loves us. How much does He love you? It is so great love! All of us know that God is rich in mercy towards us. All of us know that God cares for us. All of us know that God has spoken the promises for us and it should be manifested in our life. All of us know that God died for our curses and for our healing just like He died for the forgiveness of our sins. In fact even before you decided to be healed, He has died for your healing and for your blessing. Then why is it that people today are struggling to receive what God has promised? Why are you not 100% sure? Why are you struggling to believe? You will have to actually analyse. The reason is just simple - your faith level is not up to the mark. If your faith level is up to the mark, then you will be sure even before you see it manifesting before your eyes. Yes, you will be sure of the healing before it manifests. Ephesians 1: 1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus: Paul calls believers as saints (saints at Corinth, saints at Philippians, saints at Ephesians). Though they were saints, God expects certain things from these saints. The apostles were trying to bring to their notice certain things and one of the things is found in, 2 Corinthians 13: 9 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection. God's wish is your perfection. He also says in, Hebrews 6: 1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, So saints should just not be happy with the designation that they are saints, but they should go on to perfection. To move towards perfection, they need to leave behind the principles of the basic doctrines of Christ. But today many believers are at the basic level, for example- repentance from dead works and faith towards God. All these are basic things. Paul asks us to leave all these things and go unto perfection. Only when you go unto perfection, your faith level will also reach perfection, otherwise your faith level will be low. I am sure none of you want your faith level to be low. Before Goliath appears, your faith level should be sky high and not after he shows up. If it is not, you will run. But if your faith level is high, then Goliath will run. Hence we have to go on unto perfection. God keeps you in this world and is giving you these days so that you work towards perfection. But at the same time, there are certain things within us that prevent us from moving towards perfection and live as saints. Let us see one important but a dangerous thing within us. God created man with emotions. But at the same time He expects us to keep our emotions under our control and our emotions should not have control over us. We have to discern, which emotion is right and which is wrong. Some emotional responses are wrong because of what they do not only to us but the impact they have on others with whom we are in contact with. This man who was created with emotions, suddenly finds that his life does not go in the way which he desires. Everybody wants a good life and they want to be happy and satisfied. But if we observe our lives, it is full of ups and downs, twists and turns and full of unexpected surprises. The odds are stacked against us. In fact sooner or later things are going to happen in your life whereby you are going to get hurt. These hurtful feelings will pile up over time, will lead to resentment, and then anger and then sadness and in some cases it may also lead to depression. This will make you to hold grudges and a desire to take revenge and finally it will result in bitterness. All these happen when your emotions are not kept under your control. Life is like this because the things which you don’t like suddenly happen. Bitterness is the greatest enemy of perfection and faith. Bitterness can wear you down. It has the power to destroy us from within and also negatively impact on those whom you are coming in contact with. At some point in time, we are being hurt by someone in life. Sometimes this hurt is deliberate and sometimes it is unintentional. How many times, you are being hurt by the words or actions of the co-believers, spouse, friends and colleagues? You thought how they could be so insensitive that it might hurt you. Your heart feels like it would burst out of our chest wall. What is this common trigger? It is because of something which somebody did. Sometimes, some people may insult you. They can behave in such a way that it can trigger the pain inside you. Sometimes some people will talk behind you, which at a later point you might have heard and it would have hurt you. Some people may have rejected you and because of that you are hurt. Some people would have judged you and you came to know about it and it would have created resentment within you. Sometimes you get hurt, because somebody whom you believed greatly would have deceived you. Sometimes some people would have ignored you. We have to be careful about that because the ignorance can be unintentional. Someone might be facing a big problem at home. This person would have come to a function where you also have gone and when you were interacting with that person, he might not respond properly as his mind is full of his problems that you are not aware of. Actually he is not responding properly because his mind was preoccupied with his problems but you have been thinking that he is ignoring you and thus you thought it differently. Hurt can also take place when you differ with others even in the area of truth. In simple terms, you are hurt when someone did something hurtful or spoke hurtful. Each and every one of us has an internal emotional world which others are not aware of and very often we ourselves are not clear of this internal emotional world that is within us. I call this as emotional drama and the emotions with this emotional drama is if you allow it to pile up or to continue it will grow to hurt, anger and finally to bitterness. This will finally block your path to perfection. We have to be very careful as we go towards the path of perfection. It will also do something that is described in the Bible. The danger of bitterness is very clearly explained by the apostle Paul as, Hebrews 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; NIV translates as "see to it and be careful that you do not fall short of the grace" Paul is saying this to the saints who are the holy men of God. He asks the saints to look diligently/ carefully/ watchfully. Jesus said, “Watch and pray lest you fall into temptation" Before prayer comes, watching is essential. Else without your knowledge, this root of bitterness may go inside and will make your prayer ineffective. Hence the first step is to look diligently and be careful so that no root of bitterness springs out of you and trouble you. So Paul very clearly knows that this root of bitterness can suddenly enter you and start growing. Each one of us has an internal emotional world within us which others are not aware and which we ourselves are not aware and hence Paul tells us to “look”. So if this root of bitterness springs up within you, it will trouble you or disturb you. Paul says, because of the root of bitterness springing up within you, many will be defiled. He uses the term - "defiling others". You may ask how your bitterness will affect others to be defiled. Defile means "unholy" as you can see from the below verse Daniel 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Daniel was very careful about one thing that if he allowed him to be defiled, then God will not move for him. So he did not defile himself. But the point here is, it is not defiling yourselves but you are defiling others, not one person but defiling many. That means, their blood may be upon your head. God will be upset with you. If you are a saint, then other saints will be affected because of you. Since you did not look diligently, the internal emotional world within you started reacting and this root of bitterness started to spring up within you and because of that so many people are defiled. Today many people defile other people and walk as if they are perfect saints. Root of bitterness is very dangerous, hence he tells us to be careful so that you do not fall short of the grace of God. In fact a saint is supposed to grow in grace. Let us see one reference in this context. 2 Peter 3: 18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. James also says that “God gives more grace” But this guy because of allowing this internal emotional world, his grace is getting reduced. This is very dangerous and will affect your faith. This emotion known as bitterness will not only impact your perfection but also your faith. Jesus reveal this in, Mark 11 : 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11 : 25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. When you compare both the verses, you will find something very interesting as below. Matt 11:24 - in prayer He says when you "stand praying believe" Matt 11:25 - in prayer He says when you " stand praying forgive" There is a relationship between your answer to prayers and forgiveness. This means that bitterness should be completely erased and not temporarily. Forgiveness means that it will no more come back to your mind. If it is going to come back in your dream, then you haven't completely forgiven. Your forgiveness should be complete. This is where we need to have the strength of the Holy Spirit. Many people think they have forgiven and actually forgiveness means you forget about it and you don't think about it. Real forgiveness is not possible without the power of the Holy Spirit and without the power of Grace. How does God forgive you? He forgets about it and after that he doesn’t remember what you did. How can this be done? That is God. You can do this, when God comes inside you. God who is at work through you and if it is God who is at work through you, you can also do the same thing that God does. Philippians 2 : 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Bitterness can be removed only by God. So remember, when you pray you have to believe. In the next verse it says that you have to forgive. But if you do not forgive, Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. If you don't forgive, it means that bitterness is still inside you. Do you know that this bitterness also blocks your healing? James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Here James asks us to do something, that you may be healed. Instead of thinking that you are correct and the other person is wrong, you confess your fault one to another. After confessing, pray for one to another. When you do this then you have erased bitterness out of your heart. Ephesians 4:31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: Paul is teaching the meaning of walking in the Spirit. If bitterness is there, you cannot walk in the Spirit. Hence he has said "all bitterness" or "all types of bitterness" That means bitterness of any type should not be inside you. Look at other things that he says - wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking. All these are the effects of bitterness. Paul says that you have to always put away these things. Colossians 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; As per the above verse, we have to put on all these things. But in Ephesians 4:31, we have to put off all these things. One is put on and the other is put away. Hence the path of perfection demands what has to be put on "should be put on" and what has to be put off "should be put off". This is your job. You have to live in the light of eternity. Hence God gives us the light or revelation of eternity. We are in the path of perfection. In such a time as this, when a virus is affecting the people, God is looking for people who walk towards perfection. People who understand the desire of the creator and work for that. When you work towards perfection, you will not lose anything but will see God's best in your life. Daniel understood this when he was young and during the Old Testament days. God honoured him. In the secular world, he was at the top. The same God is working today. If you are in the secular job, you better work towards perfection and you will see God's best manifesting in your life. Not only that, you will be ready when the Lord comes. God will say " Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” God bless you. #perfection #bitterness #lightofeternity #pathofperfection #emotions #emotionalworld #puton #forgive #forgiveness #saints #saint #becomingsaints

  • Extreme Protection

    The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared the current crisis as a PANDEMIC and the coronavirus has attacked some of the world-renowned leaders all over the globe. This indicates that no one is exempt and that we all need Extreme Protection in such a time as this. In this sermon Pastor Paul Dawson helps you understand that you are the beloved of the Lord and that you dwell in safety by Him even as you live a sanctified and set apart life that pleases God. And how, God will keep you from the hour of temptation which comes upon the entire world, because you have kept the word of his patience! This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come - 2 Timothy 3:1. The current situation is going worse that no one knows what is going to happen the next minute. Safety and preservation in this world are not automatic. You need to prepare well in advance (But they knew not that evil was near them. – Judges 20:34). You need to take the necessary steps that you simply do not waste time without doing anything. For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile - 1 Peter 3:10. The word “let him” clearly indicates that God expects believers to do two things which is to Understand and Act Deuteronomy 33:12 - And of Benjamin he said, The beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety by him; and the LORD shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders. The above verse indicates the following We shall dwell by God God will cover us all the daylong We shall dwell between his shoulders No one can offer greater protection than the above-mentioned verse and this is the extreme protection guaranteed by the Lord for his ‘beloved’. The Lord offers this kind of (Z+) high level of security only for his beloved children. The beloved is prone to be attacked very much because the devil hates the beloved of the Lord. But the Lord loves his beloved because He knows how valuable His children are! 2 Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: The above verse is pivotal because you will find that God has chosen you from the beginning! He has chosen you to salvation! In Ephesians 1:4 – you will find that you were chosen before the foundation of the world. Now you need to meditate the fact that ‘I was in the mind of God even before the foundation of the world’. Revelation 13:8 says – “the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world”, which means God finished all the work for you even before you were born in this world! And that is why Paul says ‘we are bound to give thanks to God’. The moment you start to meditate that, You are Chosen You are in the mind of God God is still thinking of you How can confusion touch me? You will see the Power of God being released! You have been chosen from the foundation of the world Through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth. The word sanctification means… Set apart for a scared purpose To Flee from sin (Purification) To impart sacredness The beloved of the Lord does not sin (1 John 5:18) and therefore the wicked one touches him not. As a saint you need to look for sacred things and remain holy as He is holy, which enables you to dwell by him all day long. You cannot sin and expect to dwell by his shoulders all day long. God is holy (Isaiah 6:3) and if you need to dwell by Him, you too must be holy. Revelations 3:10 - Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Amid the current crisis, you need to understand that you are the beloved of the Lord and that you dwell in safety by him even as you live a sanctified and set apart life that pleases God. And in turn, God will keep you from the hour of temptation which comes upon the entire world, because you have kept the word of his patience! #Covid19 #coronavirus #protection #safety #preservation #beloved #pandemic #beloved

  • God's finest for His finest

    The love of God can never be adequately described as it is too deep and so vast. The rich mercy and favour of God are incomparable and they are for His Incomparable people. Pastor Paul Dawson in this message reiterates this theme encouraging his viewers to meditate on this great love and rich mercy freely showered upon us. Ephesians 2:4 says, “But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us,” drawing our attention to God who is rich. He is rich in everything but here the Word says that He is rich in mercy. Mercy is the ability to see God’s favour in your life. Do you remember blind Bartimaeus’s cry to Jesus? He did not cry out to be able to see, his cry as recorded in the Word was – “Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me.” What he received from God was a miracle. The Lord Jesus extended the favour of God to meet him at his point of need. Verily I tell you, you are the most fortunate man or woman on this earth if God has decided to show you His mercy. Oh, His love for His people is great. It is vital that we have a clear revelation of both His rich mercy and His great love towards us. In Psalm 81:16 we read, “He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.” This is God’s desire for us. He longs to feed and satisfy us. Notice He mentions feeding us with not just any wheat but the very finest. The very best or the most superior quality of wheat is what He chooses to feed us with and He longs to satisfy us with wild honey, the most natural form there is. How amazing are His plans for us His people! We see His plans further detailed out in Deuteronomy 32:13 – “He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;” Here we understand that He wants us to ride on the high places, soaring high. He also yearns to give us oil out of the hard rocks. God’s plans for us are for us to experience the very best there possibly could be. Let us never forget that whether we look to the right or to the left, wherever we turn, God is thinking of us. He knows what, when and how to give us the very best. This is the same God of whom in Romans 8:32, Scripture records, “He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” He showed us His great love by sacrificing His Son, His very best for you and me. If you are wondering today who will supply your need, this should be a reminder - He shall. Not only does He desire to supply your need but also He does it feely. How marvellous are the plans of God! Despite His rich mercy and great love for us, there are times when people don’t receive all of this. Have you wondered why? Psalm 81:11-12 says, “But My people would not hearken to My voice; and Israel would none of Me. So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels.” The problem clearly is that although God desires to give the very best, the people whom He chose for Himself, refused to accept it. They probably did not understand Him. They did not accept what He gave but instead selected something inferior. The heart of God is so evident in the subsequent verse, “Oh that My people had hearkened unto Me, and Israel had walked in My ways!” (Psalm 81:13) This is the same reason many are sick today and some even awaiting death. They have not understood His great love. They wonder why God has not answered their prayers and healed them. Sadly, they do not understand how rich in mercy our God is. He does not want anyone to suffer or be sick. His desire is to give you all things feely. In Psalm 115:14 we read, “The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.” He yearns to do this in all our lives. The Kingdom ways must manifest in our lives. We must be enlightened to see and understand the privileges He so freely longs to shower upon us. The norm is that believers walk in miracles. This is not an exception, it is the norm. Believers and miracles cannot be separated. This is because our God is rich in mercy and His love is great towards us His chosen people. #finest #greatlove #mercy #godslove #honey #rock #miracles #believers #gift #wheat #best #incomparable #increase #more #love

  • Making your faith sure

    We are all aware that we have entered the ‘New Normal’ and that the world is going through a chaotic phase. The people of the world are going through pressures on every side and the WHO chief has described that “this is just the beginning and the worst phase of coronavirus is yet to come.” There is coming a time when the lockdown lifts and you need to meet many people. Unless you have a strategy planned out, you cannot be assured that you will not be affected by the coronavirus. In this sermon, we will find Pastor Paul Dawson revealing the secret of how to make your faith and confidence sure! Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall- 2 Peter 1:10 KJV Another statement issued by the Indian scientific research is that 80% of the Indians are Asymptomatic and it simply means that they show no symptoms unless they are tested. This proves how cunning this virus can be. The question is… How you made your faith sure so that you don’t fall? Are you are going to say whatever comes to the unbeliever comes to me? Don’t you know you have a God who preserves you from all evil? Don’t you think there is a God who puts the difference between my people and the Egyptians? (Exodus 8:23) Where is that God? Are you 100 % sure that you will not be impacted by the virus and its effects? If you have not made your faith 100 % sure – you are exposed! Don’t take this truth lightly. Develop your faith to such a level so that your faith is sure! There is going to be lack, unemployment, debt and decrease. So, what is the meaning of your faith being sure? A person who has made his faith sure will be relaxed, resting and calm even when they hear such news. And… They know exactly what can happen to them. They know that they are in safe hands. They know that they will only see the hand of God. They will be very clear that the power of God will be working in their favour. They know that they are the Incomparable People! Now let’s examine a person from the Bible whose faith was 100% sure: Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree. Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime - Daniel 6:9-10 Daniel continued to give thanks even though the king has signed the writing and the decree because his faith was 100% sure. He was very confident even before he could see any anything. Now, how to make your faith and confidence sure? The secret lies here… Philippians 2:21 (KJV) For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's. Paul was writing about believers who were interested in themselves and not in Christ. He was especially addressing to the believers of his period. Now, let’s read Mathew 6:32 & 33 and we find that both the verses are addressing the same thing. “For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Now you may wonder how it is related to great faith if we do not seek our own but the things of Jesus Christ. The answer is if you seek your own things, your faith level will be very low. Colossians 1:16 - reveals that all things have been created through him and for him. You are living for his pleasure, and you will be violating the purpose for which God has created you if you do not fulfill his desire. For example – a robot created to be an assistant or a helper, instead of fulfilling its duty, takes a stick and starts beating, will the maker be happy? In the same way, you are just like the robot, created by the hands of the creator God to do his pleasure as mentioned in Revelations 4:11 and He expects your mind and will power to fulfill what He has created you for. And if you only try to please yourself, will He be happy? Do you know that faith comes from the Creator? Jesus Christ is the author of faith and if your faith level has to be high you have to seek the things of Jesus Christ. Clearly understand that God wants your faith level to be high that it can move mountains and only then you can be a blessing to yourself and others. Mark 11: 22- 23 reveals that you can have whatever you say. Don’t you think you can apply this to the corona Virus Mountain, but the only thing is, you should not doubt and believe that you will have whatever you say! Because when the word of God is fulfilled, you can stop anything. When your faith level is high, you will be a blessing to others. We are facing such chaotic situations where many have lost their jobs. Today you need faith. When there is no man to help you - have the faith of God. You can have whatever you say. Take this seriously. You need extreme faith. Be blessed as you are God's best! #newnormal #faithlevel #greatfaith #faith #seekGod #seekthingsabove #makeyourfaith sure #daniel #calm #thrive amidst chaos
