BUILD YOUR CAPACITY TO BELIEVE – DEVOTION WEEK 8


“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them” (Mark 11:23).This is an encouragement for us to build our capacity to believe. How can we build it? It is not all up to God; certainly, it is not all up to us; it takes

Build Your Capacity To Believe

both God’s ability and our genuine willingness to build our capacity to believe. God’s role is: His Word available for us; His grace to cover us. Man’s role is: to obey what he hears. If man obeys what he hears, he has the capacity or ability to believe. What is possible for you may not be possible for me. What is possible for me is based on my capacity to believe. God cannot work through you except through your capacity to believe. Your capacity to believe can increase or decrease depending on the rate you feed your soul with God’s Word. In Romans 10:10, we learn that what is restricting us is not on the outside but on the inside. Our heart is the communication point or contact between belief and unbelief, God’s Spirit and evil spirit. Our belief needs to be reset. Resetting your belief can only be done according to Joshua 1:8, ‘Keep the Word in your mouth – WORDS. Meditate on the Word day and night – THOUGHTS. Do what the Word says – ACTIONS.’ If you want to move mountains with your belief, this is the process. Come on, move mountains today with your belief as you build your capacity by following the Kingdom Way (Joshua 1:8).

Prayer Point: Lord Jesus Christ, increase my capacity to believe! My capacity to believe that You are the Healer, Deliverer, Provider, Saviour, Redeemer, in Jesus’ name!

PROFESSING AFFINITY TO CHRIST – WEEK 6 DEVOTION


A Christian is one whose life comes from Christ. Many today, accept the name of Jesus Christ but not the life of Jesus Christ. When I say, ‘The life of Jesus Christ’, I mean God’s kind of lifestyle which is a lifestyle based on positive faith: that is, positive thinking, positive talking and positive acting. However, we profess affinity to Christ according to the flesh, while we are unchanged in the heart and life. Many become Christians, born-again with self-effort. Self-effort is a wrong attitude toward sin and it leaves us with urge; urge to do the wrong things. It is pertinent to note that without the Holy Spirit destroying the root of sin in us, we are bound to be tormented by our desire to return to our bad habits. Psalms 66:18 says, “If I regard sin – iniquity, in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.” We are made in our heart to be like Jesus. True Christianity lies in the heart – in the purity of the heart. On the last day, we will be judged not by the colour of our skin but by the content of our character. James 1:22 reads, “But be doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving yourself.’’ Many people say, ‘I’m born again, I gave my life to Christ 25 years ago…’ This means you are a divine image bearer of God; you mirror Jesus. The challenge many Christians, believers, pastors and the rest are facing, is the problem of urge behind closed doors – urge to do many bad habits. Many Christians, Bible students, church people are studying the Word but have failed to act on or do the Word. The mind is renewed by studying the Word and acting upon it. One may study the Word for years; if he or she is not a doer, the mind cannot be renewed. Meditation in the Word is a visit to Him. When you meditate on God’s Word, you bring God’s power onto the scene.

CARRY YOUR YOUTH ALONG


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

I am seeing a revolution. I am seeing people take to the street. At the beginning of that protest, it might be stopped. Eventually, it will become so big that it cannot be stopped.

The Way Out: Job creation for the youth and the creation of a new social value system. This is because 90% of youth believe that it is by becoming political thugs that they could be successful, especially because those in the political offices do not want to retire in politics and become statesmen. The youth, no matter the education they have, feel they have no place in politics and there is no job to keep them busy. There must be new orientation.

In politics, the youth should be considered for important positions such as assistants to the elders. While the elders are ministers, the youth could be junior ministers. This little example of being junior ministers can change the situation of things. Tell your presidents – in every department of government or politics, the youth should be junior assistants to the heads of such departments.

A good example – The chairman of the political party in your country could be an elder while a youth should be a junior chairman under him as the second in command.

In all appointments in the departments of politics or administration, youth should be considered as second in command. By doing this, we are training them to take over tomorrow. This is because they are leaders tomorrow.
This is a message to the whole world. This is because revolution is a weapon of change that is coming.

This is the vision I saw. Revolution is coming when people will take to the street because life has no value anymore to the people out there.

Any nation that will start it now, will avert the coming revolution. Carry your youth along in your politics and administration especially in ruling your country. I have said it; none of these will go without being fulfilled.

Read about me and my track record; this is the voice of God.

I realised that my messages right from the beginning of my ministry were never believed until they came to pass. I want you to believe this before it happens because it would be disastrous. When we carry the youth along, whenever there is a revolt or situation, they will be available to readily speak to their colleagues and peace will be maintained. The youth want to see themselves represented in every area of life. God bless your nation, God bless the whole world, peace be unto your nations. Those who cry peace to us, prophesy nothing but smooth things. Those who cry peace to you, victory be to you, all is well, unlimited favour, prophesy nothing but smooth things. As surely as God lives, I (T.B. Joshua) will tell you only what God says. If I am hated, persecuted and intimidated because of my accurate prophetic utterances – Blessed be to God who gives the prophecy!

As truth was older than terror so it will survive it, it got the start and it will get the race. The day will declare who is in the right and who is in the wrong, says the Lord.

When God gives being to the Word, that Word becomes alive. You can speak Word without being but God Himself gives life to the Word. What God says is final. God has all men’s hearts in His hands and turns them as He pleases to serve His purpose contrary to their own first intentions.

I am talking to your country. Let’s pray that God should give our leaders and people in positions a hearing heart.

If this is done, you will still see signs, you will still see protests but those protests will not turn into a revolution. Our youth are more educated than our elders because they are exposed to modern day technology.
The coming ominous signs are disastrous. I am talking to the whole world.
