LESSON 451
THE “WORD” AND PROSPERITY (JOSH. 1:8)

Deut.8: 3; Job.23: 12; Ps.119: 103; Jer.15: 16.

1b FOR CLEANSING
Ps.119: 9; Ps.119: 11; John.17: 17; John.15: 3.

LESSON 452
IMITATORS OF GOD Part 1

INTRODUCTION:

The Bible teaches that the adage Like Father like son is most appropriate to Christians. In fact we are required to be carbon copies of our heavenly Father. But how? this series will show us. May God enrich us as we study in Jesus name. Amen

1. GOD IS LOVE: YOU TOO MUST LOVE
We are expected like our Father in heaven to love, He is love. We cannot be perfect until we progress from being loving to being loving
Eph.5:1-2; Mat5:48; I John 4:7-8; 1 Thess 4:9; John 3:16; Jn. 15:13; 1John3:16; Matt. 22:37-39; 1John 3:18


2 . GOD IS MERCIFUL: YOU MUST BE TOO
The- Bible teaches’ that God is rich in mercy. That His mercy endureth for ever. All the time He heals or performed a miracle, it was because He was moved with compassion. He expects no less from His children.
Eph.2:4,lChron16:34,Matt.9:36,Matt.18:27, Matt.20:34 Lk. 6:36; Mt. 13:23-33; 1Pet. 3:3; 1John 3:17; Mk. 10:46:52 Mt. 5:14-16

LESSON 453
IMITATORS OF GOD Part 2

INTRODUCTION:

In the first part of this series, we saw how we are directed to follow God in Holiness, Love and Mercy. Today, as we continue in our study, may God help us to be like Him in Jesus Name Amen.

1. LIKE HIM IN HUMILITY
Our God is humble in a way that is beyond human understanding, it takes humility before the Spirit of God can be in love with ordinary dust. We pray that we saint will have humility that will be able to save wretched sinner from hell.
Eph. 5:1-2, Jn. 4:24, Gen. 2:7, Gen. 3:9, Isa 9:6, Gen. 6:3, Ps 90:10, Jn. 1:1-3, Gen. 1:26, Acts 10:9-20, Act 10:34, Act 11:1-2.

2. LIKE HIM IN MINISTRY
It is a very difficult thing to believe that you can make the creator of heaven and earth to be a servant for His creature without forcing him to do so. Still the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords also become a slave to man. We pray that we will follow this example no matter what it will cost us to do so Amen.
Isa. 42:11, Math 20:27-28, Jn. 13:14, Math. 23:11, Luke 22:27, I Cor. 4:9, Eph. 3:8, Math. 10:24-25, Act 28:3.

LESSON 454
IMITATORS OF GOD Part 3

LESSON 455
IMITATORS OF GOD Part 4

INTRODUCTION:

Often and often men say they have faith. But when faith
is not put into action is just like having money and refusing to spend it. may the Lord teaches us today in Jesus Name , Amen.

1. FAITH IN ACTION.
Gen. 1.3. Gen; 12-1. 1 Chron. 4:9-.10; John 9-71 Dan.ll:24; Dan.3:16-.17.; Dan. 6:13-23.

LESSON 456
IMITATORS OF GOD Part 5

INTRODUCTION:
In the last part of this series we studied the step to true Joy. We shall continue this study when we would be examining the step to true Blessing. God blesses with spiritual blessings in high places especially to the saved. His own children Eph.1: 3. Money, riches, cattle, wealth were the experiences of Solomon, but he concluded all to be vanity without God. Eccl: 2, 2:1-15. We pray that God would bless us as we study under His feet in Jesus name, Amen.

Steps to the True Blessings:
a). Know the Lord –Matt.6:33-34; Ps.73:1:-17, 25.
b). Obey God in all ways like Abraham Gen.22:3. Do your work in Godly way.
c). Seek the greatest blessing -the Kingdom of God. John14:1-3; Mat.6:33, 34.
God has abundance of joy and blessings if only we recognize the WAY to him, who is JESUS.

LESSON 457

(3) Joseph’s brothers, it may be years before its discovery -Gen. 42:21.

LESSON 458
WATCHOUT

INTRODUCTION:

Someone once said that opportunity knocks but once. After that, it may not wait long. So that If you do not open the door to it immediately, it Will go elsewhere. And once it is gone, it may be forever. Please watch out. May God bless us richly as we study in Jesus Name, Amen.

1. THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR SALVATION AND VICTORY: SOME SEIZED IT, SOME LOST IT
The Ethiopian Eunuch and the Jailer are good examples of those who seized the opportunity for Salvation. Felix and Jerusalem lost it. Some also seized the opportunity for victory and some lost it.
Acts.8: 34-38, Acts.16: 27-33. Acts.24: 24-25. Acts.26: 28 Mt.23: 37-39. II Sam.5: 22-25, II Kg.13: 14-19, II Sam.15: 31, II Sam.17: 1-14.

2. THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR GLORY TOO: MAY YOU NOT MISS IT.
Several people had missed opportunity for eternal glory in the past. Eli, King Saul, Demas Just to mention a few. But Paul did not miss it. May you too not miss it in Jesus name Amen.

LESSON 459
SOUL WINNER – (LUKE 15:1-7)

INTRODUCTION:

The only way a Christian can have a full joy is by winning souls for the Lord, Jesus Christ. We pray that Holy Spirit will teach us today as we learn at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1. Essential ingredient to a successful Christian work.
Ps. 51:12-13; Ps. 126:6; Luke 15:6-7; John4:36;
Acts. 15:3; 1Thes. 2:19-20

LESSON 460
LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE

INTRODUCTION:

Light is sweet and welcome because God is the father of light. Since darkness is the symbol of sin, by contrast, light is the symbol of holiness and purity. In this message we shall talk on three aspects: (1) Need to let your light shine (2). How our light must shine (3) Rewards for letting our light shine.

1. NEED TO LET OUR LIGHT SHINE
It is a command from the lips of our Lord in order to rescue those who are lost in darkness.
Matt. 5: 14-16; Mark. 16: 15. Matt. 28: 19; Isa 60: 1-3; !Cor. 9: 16; John15:16; Ex.10:22-23; Col.1 :13.

2. HOW OUR LIGHT MUST SHINE
Refuse to put your light under a bushel, you must be spirit filled. Generate more light by prayers and fasting., live a dedicated and holy life you need to humble yourself and study the word of God .
Matt. 5:16; Lk.4:18; Acts10:38; Matt. 17:21Lk.18:1; Job 22:28; Phi!. 2:15; Lk. 1:21; Heb. 12:14; 1 Pet. 5:6; 2Cor. 4:6-7; Rev. 12:7; Lk. 1:26; Ps. 31:23; Ezk. 28:13; 26:13; 2Tim. 2:15; Ps. 107:20; Gen. 1:2-3.

3. REWARDS FOR LETTING OUR LIGHT SHINE
Men will through you glorify God. You will be stars for ever and your reward is not only in heaven is also in this world
Matt. 5:16; Dan. 12:3; Phil. 4:1; Matt. 19:27-29;1Tim.5:18; Heb. 11:6.

LESSON 461
THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES Part 1

INTRODUCTION:

The Lord Jesus Christ compared Himself to the Vine and we His Children to the branches. God the Father is the Owner of the Vineyard, looking after both the Vine and the branches. The fruitless branches are removed, the fruitful, ones are purged May the Lord bless us richly as we study in Jesus Name. Amen

1. THE BRANCH HAS NO EXCUSE FOR BEING FRUITLESS
There are many resources available to the branch through the Vine, to enable it bear fruits. Infact all that the branches need to be fruitful are available in the Vine. All that is required of the branch therefore is to cooperate with the Vine
John.15:1-2, Ph.4:19, Johnl:7, Rev.12:11, Eph.6:10, Ph.2:9-11,Jn.14: 4, Ph.4:13, I Cor.3:6- 7, I Cor.3;9, Matt.11 :28-30

2. THE HUSBANDMAN THEREFORE HAS GOOD CAUSE TO BE VIOLENT WITH THE FRUITLESS BRANCH
Not only is a lot of resources wasted on the fruitless branch, it is equally guilty of frustrating the aspirations and purposes of the husbandman.
John1:12, Act .10: 38 Jn.15: 16, Mk.16: 15-20

LESSON 462
THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES Part 2

JOHN. 15: 1-2,5

INTRODUCTION:

In the first part of this series, we saw that fruit-bearing should be easy for the branch because of the tremendous resources and care supplied by the Vine and the Husbandman which explain why the fruitless branch is torn off because it is not fulfilling its purpose hence it is frustrating to the Husbandman. Today, we shall look at the fruitful branch. May God bless us richly as we study in Jesus name. Amen.

1. EVERY GOOD STUDENT IS EXAMINED SO AS TO BE PROMOTED
The fruitful branch is purged, so that it can produce more fruits. This is because every good student goes in for exams so that he could be promoted. We must therefore know the difference between tests from God and temptations from the devil. The tests must be welcomed. Johnl5:1-2,5; Jam.l:2-4; Gen.18:17-19; Gen.22:l-2; Jam.l:13,Gen22:15-18; Dan.1 :3-16; Dan.2 :1-19; Dan.2 :46-49; Dan.3:l3-23 Dan.3:24-30; Dan.6:1-5; Dan.6: 15-l7; Dan.6: 24-28

2. WE ALL NEED PURGING TO GO TO HIGHER GROUNDS
Purging may not be pleasant initially, but it is necessary if we are to go to higher grounds. We need to keep in shape, and to reach perfection.
Heb.12: 4-11; Heb 12:1; 2Pet.1:3-4; 1Cor. 9:27; Mal. 3:3; Heb 5:8-9; Heb 2:9-10.

LESSON 463
THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES Part 3

JOHN 15:1,2,5

INTRODUCTION:

In the previous part of this series we have looked at the fruitless branch and the fruitful branch. Today want to look at the progression in fruit bearing. May God bless us as we study at His Feet in Jesus name, Amen

I. FROM GLORY TO GLORY
A branch can move from bearing more fruit to much fruit. Just as our faith can move from zero faith to exceeding great faith. In fact the plan of God for our lives is for us to move from glory to glory
John.15: l, Matt.15: 28, Mt.8: 10, 2.Cor.3: l8; 11:1.3

2. ABIDING IN CHRIST CAN LEAD TO SOMETHING BETTER THAN BEST
The conditions for bearing much fruit are for us to abide in Christ and Christ to abide in us. If we abide in Him, our best can even be better
Mt.5: 6; Jos. I: 8, Ps.1:1-3: I Thess. 5:l6-l8 Jude.20; Ps.23:6; Ps.9l:l;14-l5; Mt.5:48, :John.17:l7, Ph.3:l3-l4

LESSON 464
THE VINE AND BRANCHES (JOHN 15:1,2,5) Part 4

INTRODUCTION:

So far we have considered the fruitless branch and the fruitful branch. We have also considered progression in fruit bearing. Today, we will consider Christ’s statement.-”Without me ye can do nothing.” May the Lord bless us richly as the study in Jesus name. Amen.

1. A MAN WHO HAS CHRIST HAS EVERYTHING
Anyone who has Christ has life, light, Salvation Joy strength, power, wisdom, righteousness sanctification etc. In short anyone who has Christ has everything. and can do anything.
John15:1,2,5; John3:36; John1:4; Ps.27:1; Neh.8:10, 1Cor.1:22-24; 1Cor.1:30; Ph.4:19; Ph.4:13.

2. MAN WITHOUT CHRIST IS GRASS
Man is made from the dust of the earth. At the very best he is like grass and the flowers of grass. He may blossom in the morning and wither before the sun has set. When Christ leaves a man, all that is left is nothing
Gen.3:17-19; Isa. 40:6-8; 1Pet,1:24-25; Ps.90:5-6; Dan.4:30-37;Judges16:18-20;Jos.7:10-12; 1Sam.4:3-11; 1Sam.4:19-22

LESSON 465
THE CROWNS

INTRODUCTION:

If and when we get to heaven, we shall not be treated as ordinary people but as Kings. And as Kings, we shall wear crowns. These crowns and the conditions for qualifying for them are the subject matter of our study today. May God bless us richly as we study in Jesus name. Amen.

I. GLORIOUS CROWNS, SERIOUS CONDITIONS
There are five glorious crowns mentioned in the Bible waiting for the overcomers in heaven; The conditions for getting them are however rather serious. Which is understandable because precious things do not come cheap.
Rev. 1:4-6; II Tim. 4:8; I Tim. 2:19-20; Phil. 4:1; I Pet. 5:2-4. I Cor.9:25-27; John 2:28; Jam. 1:12, Rev. 2:10; II Cor. 5:10; I Cor. 4:5; I Thess 4:17.

LESSON 466
THE KINGS AND THEIR THRONES (REV. 3:21)

INTRODUCTION:

Last week we discussed the various Crowns available to us as Kings of the Most High. Today we want to look at the thrones from which we shall reign. May God bless us richly as we study in Jesus name Amen
.
1. THE THRONE OF CHRIST
The throne of our Lord Jesus Christ is in heaven and will be forever. It is a throne of holiness established of old in righteousness and upheld by mercy. He received it from the Ancient of days and shares it with His joint-heirs.
Is.66:1; Ps.ll:14; Ps.45:6; Ps.47:8; Ps.93:2, Pro.16:l3; Pro.20:28: Dan.7:13-14, Rom.8:16-l7; Dan.7:9,22,27
.
2. WE SHALL SHARE HIS THRONE
Who are those who shall share His throne? Those who have followed Him, continued with Him and overcame with Him.
Mt.19:28;Lk.22:28-29; Rev.20:4,Rev.2:26-27 1Cor.6:2-3; Rev.19:11-16; Rev.3:2l.

LESSON 467
LET YOUR LIGHT SO SHINE

INTRODUCTION:

God is light and the father of it. He dwells in the light unapproachable. In this message we shall talk on (1) The symbol of light and its contrast (2) How to shine as light (3) Reward for letting your light shine. May the Lord bless us as we study at His feet in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

1. THE SYMBOL OF LIGHT AND ITS CONTRAST
Light is the symbol of holiness by contrast while darkness is the symbol of sin, light is glorious and sweet but the victim of darkness is fearful and spiritually dead and blind.
Matt 5:14- 16; 1Pet 2:9; Eph. 5:8; I Pet.1: 1 Heb.12: 14; 2Cor.: 16-18; Matt. 6:24;Jere.6: 16; Ps. 27; 1, Exo10: 22- 23; Acts 17:28; 2Cor.4: 4

2. HOW TO SHINE AS LIGHT
You must have the nature of the father of light, be committed, to evangelize the gospel, and be a practicing Christian. You can generate more light for power through prayers and constantly be in tune with the Holy Spirit. Encourage your children to shine as light.
2Cor.5:17;John.3:3;Col.1:13;Matt.28:19-20; 1Cor.9:16; Eph.5:16; Acts11:26; Zech.4:6; 1Cor.11:1; Prov. 22:6; Joel 2:28

3. REWARDS FOR LETTING YOUR LIGHT SHINE
Mansion in Heaven, Purpose for your life shall be achieved, and you will be a blessing.
John 14:3; 2Cor. 5:1; 1Pet. 1:4; 1Tim. 4:7-8; Gen. 12:2-3.

LESSON 468
THE KING AND HIS SCEPTRE

INTRODUCTION:

So far we have looked at the King and his Crowns, his throne and his Kingdom. Today, we want to look at something very crucial to the king; the sceptre. May the Lord bless us richly as we study in Jesus name, Amen.

1. THE SCEPTRE IS EQUIVALENT TO THE KING
The Sceptre is equivalent to the king. When you hear of the Sceptre, you are hearing of the King. Because the Sceptre is the quiet but powerful symbol of authority of the King. For us as Christian kings, ours sceptre is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
Gen. 49:10; Num.24:17; Est. 4:10-11; Ph. 2:9-11; Ps.20:5,7,8 1Sam.17:45; Rev. 12:10-11; Lev. 17:11, 1John 1:7; Isa. 59:1-2; John.1:1; 14; Ps. 119:89, Isa. 40:8; Matt. 4:1-11

2. HOLINESS: THE BACKBONE OF THE SCEPTRE
Holiness is the backbone of the Christian’s sceptre because you cannot enthrone a King with fault or weakness whereas the sceptre is no effect in the hand of a backslider.
Heb. 1:8, John 14:30; Dan. 6:3-4; 20-22; Eccl.7:9; Pro.6:25-29; 1Sam. 15:10-24; Pro. 29:25; Heb. 10:29-31.

LESSON 469
CATEGORIES OF KINGS

INTRODUCTION:

There are kings and there are kings. And of course there is the Kings of Kings. In this concluding study on our series on Kings may the Lord bless us richly. In Jesus name. Amen.

1. THERE ARE CATEGORIES OF KINGS
Every Kings has domain. But even in the same Kingdom one King may be above another, so that a superior king can get a lower King to do the will of him the superior King
Dan. 6:1-2; Gen. 41:39-43; Ps. 105:17-22; Job. 12:13-19; Pro 21:1; 1Kings 18: 17-20; 11 King 6:21-23

2. HOW TO BE THE HIGHEST
Promotion only comes from God. But He does not act arbitrarily He sees what others cannot see, even the hidden thoughts and motives of every man and decides accordingly.
Ps. 75:6- 7; 2Tim. 4:8; 1 Sam. 16:6- 7; Acts 10: 34-35; 1 Sam. 2;7-8; 1 Sam. 13:13-14; 1Sam. 16:1; Dan. 6:3; Dan. 2:20-21

LESSON 470
THE TREE BY THE RIVER SIDE (Ps.1:1-3) Part 1

INTRODUCTION:

Trees are conspicuous in the Scriptures. They are referred to in parables, and used as analogies. As we begin this new series, may the Lord bless us richly in Jesus name, Amen.

1. TREES ARE RICH IN SYMBOLISM.
Several Trees are mentioned in the Scriptures. Prominent among them are the Trees of life, of the knowledge of good and evil, olive, vine, fig, palm and cedar. Many of these are used as symbols to teach us great truths
Ps .1: 1-3, Gen.2:9, Pro.3:13, 18; Prov. 11: 30; Pro.15:4; Ps112:15; 65:22, Hos.14:5-.6; Mt.24:32-33.

2. A TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS FRUIT
A tree is known, not by its sizes, colour or even leaves. A tree that bears fruit is fulfilling its purpose on earth and will find favour with God.
Luke.6.44, Jam.3:I2, Mt 13:31-32, Mt.7:17, Mt.7:18-19; Judges. 9:8-15, Mt. 12:33, Isaiah 56:3-5

LESSON 471
JESUS IS THE WAY (JOHN1:1-4) Part 3

INTRODUCTION:

In the last part of this series we studied the steps to true Blessing. As we continue this study, we would be examining the Way to Health. Christ came to this earth to bring more than a religion, more than code of teachings, more than a system of Christian living. We pray that God would bless us as we study under His feet in Jesus name, Amen
1. THE WORD
Before ever the world was, the Word was; for the Word is God. John1:1 John17: 5; 1John1:1;5,7; Rev .19: 13.The Word is the Creator of all that is, Visible and Invisible – John.1, 3; Col. 16; Rom.1, 20.Therefore perfectly fit to be our way to health and peace.

2. The Way to Health:
Those who believed on Him were born again and made the sons of God thereby, enjoy the perfect health. John1:12-13; Phil.2:15. Disobedience from the Garden of Eden took away perfect health and peace -Gen.3:17-19. Since then humanity had been under curse and live almost all the time on tablets, injections and doctors. Deut.28:22, 27-28; 30, 60, 66-67.
Doctors are good, but the life in Christ and his word is a medicine for our body. Pro.4:20-22; Ps.107:20, Matt 8:8, 13; John 6:63; Acts 14:7-10.
3. How Does the Healing Come? Through the stripes
I Pet.2:24, Isaiah 53:5;
4. How to Receive: By accepting Jesus the way -Ex.15:26; Ps.103:3.

LESSON 472
FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD Part 2

INTRODUCTION:

No Christian can accomplish any great thing for God, if he has not learnt the art of been alone with God. May the Lord teach us how to be alone with Him in Jesus name, Amen.

1. ALONE WITH GOD
As children of God, we have the priviledge of going into His Room to discuss our plans, our ministry, etc with Him and no one can disturb us.
Heb.4: 16; I Chron.16: 11; Mat. 7:7; Mat 26:41; Luke21: 36 John16: 24;1Thess. 5:17, 1Tim. 2:8

2. EXAMPLES OF THOSE WHO WERE ALONE WITH GOD
It is not impossible to be alone with God more so when there had been people who have tried it and succeeded in doing so and have also achieved great results.
Dan.6:20-22; Dan.3;1-end, I Chor:4;9-10; Kings 19:19-20 Mat.26:38:-39, 40

LESSON 473
TREE BY THE RIVER SIDE (Ps. 1:1-3) Part 3

INTRODUCTION:

In the second part of this series, we saw the importance of roots to trees. Of much importance than this is the fact that, the source by which trees draw water to satisfy thirst is the root. May the Lord satisfy all our thirst today in Jesus Name. Amen.

1. EVERY MAN THIRSTY DESIRES TO DRINK WATER
Thirst can kill, can kill trees, animals and Man. As water satisfies the physical thirst so also God satisfies the Spiritual thirst of those who are ready to drink from Him.
Is.29:9, Ex. 17:3, Judges.15:18, Is.5:13, Amos 8:11-12, Mt.5:6 ;Jn. 4:13-14, Jn. 7:37-38, Is. 48:20-21, Ps. 42:1-2.

2. YOU CAN DRINK AS MUCH AS YOU DESIRE FROM THE RIVERS OF GOD
Drinking water from the rivers of God makes one happy and it equally satisfies. You can drink as much as you desire since his rivers are filled with water that gives eternal life.
Ps. 46:4, Ps 36:7-8, Ps. 65:9, Jer. 17:7-8, Ezek. 4:7-12, Rev. 22:1-2, Is. 43:19-20.

LESSON 474
THE TREE BY THE RIVERSIDE(Ps. 1:1-3) Part 4

INTRODUCTION:

In the last part of this series, we saw that the tree uses its roots to drink and quench its thirst. We saw also that any man who wants can drink to the full from the river of God. Today as we continue with our study, May God satisfy us in Jesus name, Amen.

1. YOUR SPIRITUAL STANDING GREATLY AFFECTS YOUR PHYSICAL AND MATERIAL WELL-BEING.
The tree by the riverside prospers; its leaves never wither. Similarly, the man by the rivers of God, learning and doing the will of God, will prosper physically, materially and spiritually.
3 Jn. 2, Prov. 4:20-22, Ex. 15:26, Mt. 6:28-33, 2Chron. 9:27, Ps. 112:1-3, Deut.28:1-8; Prov. 3:5-10.

2. IF YOU HAD MOVED AWAY FROM THE RIVERSIDE, RETURN SOONEST
Prosperity is for a purpose, if the purpose is abused; prosperity can become a curse. Fortunately, our God is merciful and is willing to heal backsliders.
Deut. 8:18, Eph. 4:28, Math. 5:26, Lk. 13:6-9, Lk. 12:16-21, Prov.1:32, Jer. 3:21-23, Hos. 14:4-6, Is. 43:1-5.

LESSON 475
TREE BY THE RIVER SIDE – Part 5

INTRODUCTION:

In the last part of this series, we saw that the tree uses its roots to drink and quench its thirst. We saw also that any man who wants can drink to the full from the river of God. Today as we continue with our study, May God satisfy us in Jesus name, Amen.

1. YOUR SPIRITUAL STANDING GREATLY AFFECTS YOUR PHYSICAL AND MATERIAL WELL-BEING.
The tree by the riverside prospers; its leaves never wither. Similarly, the man by the rivers of God, learning and doing the will of God, will prosper physically, materially and spiritually.
3 Jn. 2, Prov. 4:20-22, Ex. 15:26, Mt. 6:28-33, 2Chron. 9:27, Ps. 112:1-3, Deut.28:1-8; Prov. 3:5-10.

2. IF YOU HAD MOVED AWAY FROM THE RIVERSIDE, RETURN SOONEST
Prosperity is for a purpose, if the purpose is abused; prosperity can become a curse. Fortunately, our God is merciful and is willing to heal backsliders.
Deut. 8:18, Eph. 4:28, Math. 5:26, Lk. 13:6-9, Lk. 12:16-21, Prov.1:32, Jer. 3:21-23, Hos. 14:4-6, Is. 43:1-5.

LESSON 451
THE “WORD” AND PROSPERITY (JOSH. 1:8)

INTRODUCTION:

There is difference between the prosperity that the word of God approves and the one that the world runs after. Today our study will be divided into two parts.

1. The ‘Word’
2. Prosperity

1a. THE ‘WORD’ AS FOOD
Deut.8: 3; Job.23: 12; Ps.119: 103; Jer.15: 16.

1b FOR CLEANSING
Ps.119: 9; Ps.119: 11; John.17: 17; John.15: 3.

LESSON 452
IMITATORS OF GOD Part 1

INTRODUCTION:

The Bible teaches that the adage Like Father like son is most appropriate to Christians. In fact we are required to be carbon copies of our heavenly Father. But how? this series will show us. May God enrich us as we study in Jesus name. Amen

1. GOD IS LOVE: YOU TOO MUST LOVE
We are expected like our Father in heaven to love, He is love. We cannot be perfect until we progress from being loving to being loving
Eph.5:1-2; Mat5:48; I John 4:7-8; 1 Thess 4:9; John 3:16; Jn. 15:13; 1John3:16; Matt. 22:37-39; 1John 3:18


2 . GOD IS MERCIFUL: YOU MUST BE TOO
The- Bible teaches’ that God is rich in mercy. That His mercy endureth for ever. All the time He heals or performed a miracle, it was because He was moved with compassion. He expects no less from His children.
Eph.2:4,lChron16:34,Matt.9:36,Matt.18:27, Matt.20:34 Lk. 6:36; Mt. 13:23-33; 1Pet. 3:3; 1John 3:17; Mk. 10:46:52 Mt. 5:14-16

LESSON 453
IMITATORS OF GOD Part 2

INTRODUCTION:

In the first part of this series, we saw how we are directed to follow God in Holiness, Love and Mercy. Today, as we continue in our study, may God help us to be like Him in Jesus Name Amen.

1. LIKE HIM IN HUMILITY
Our God is humble in a way that is beyond human understanding, it takes humility before the Spirit of God can be in love with ordinary dust. We pray that we saint will have humility that will be able to save wretched sinner from hell.
Eph. 5:1-2, Jn. 4:24, Gen. 2:7, Gen. 3:9, Isa 9:6, Gen. 6:3, Ps 90:10, Jn. 1:1-3, Gen. 1:26, Acts 10:9-20, Act 10:34, Act 11:1-2.

2. LIKE HIM IN MINISTRY
It is a very difficult thing to believe that you can make the creator of heaven and earth to be a servant for His creature without forcing him to do so. Still the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords also become a slave to man. We pray that we will follow this example no matter what it will cost us to do so Amen.
Isa. 42:11, Math 20:27-28, Jn. 13:14, Math. 23:11, Luke 22:27, I Cor. 4:9, Eph. 3:8, Math. 10:24-25, Act 28:3.

Lesson 456

LESSON 456
IMITATORS OF GOD Part 5

INTRODUCTION:
In the last part of this series we studied the step to true Joy. We shall continue this study when we would be examining the step to true Blessing. God blesses with spiritual blessings in high places especially to the saved. His own children Eph.1: 3. Money, riches, cattle, wealth were the experiences of Solomon, but he concluded all to be vanity without God. Eccl: 2, 2:1-15. We pray that God would bless us as we study under His feet in Jesus name, Amen.

Steps to the True Blessings:
a). Know the Lord –Matt.6:33-34; Ps.73:1:-17, 25.
b). Obey God in all ways like Abraham Gen.22:3. Do your work in Godly way.
c). Seek the greatest blessing -the Kingdom of God. John14:1-3; Mat.6:33, 34.
God has abundance of joy and blessings if only we recognize the WAY to him, who is JESUS.

LESSON 458
WATCHOUT

INTRODUCTION:

Someone once said that opportunity knocks but once. After that, it may not wait long. So that If you do not open the door to it immediately, it Will go elsewhere. And once it is gone, it may be forever. Please watch out. May God bless us richly as we study in Jesus Name, Amen.

1. THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR SALVATION AND VICTORY: SOME SEIZED IT, SOME LOST IT
The Ethiopian Eunuch and the Jailer are good examples of those who seized the opportunity for Salvation. Felix and Jerusalem lost it. Some also seized the opportunity for victory and some lost it.
Acts.8: 34-38, Acts.16: 27-33. Acts.24: 24-25. Acts.26: 28 Mt.23: 37-39. II Sam.5: 22-25, II Kg.13: 14-19, II Sam.15: 31, II Sam.17: 1-14.

2. THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR GLORY TOO: MAY YOU NOT MISS IT.
Several people had missed opportunity for eternal glory in the past. Eli, King Saul, Demas Just to mention a few. But Paul did not miss it. May you too not miss it in Jesus name Amen.
I Sam.2: 30. I Sam.13: 13-14, Col.4: 14, Philemon 24, Ps.3: 14-15,2 Tim.4: 7, Matt.11: 12.,

Lesson 460

LESSON 460
LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE

INTRODUCTION:

Light is sweet and welcome because God is the father of light. Since darkness is the symbol of sin, by contrast, light is the symbol of holiness and purity. In this message we shall talk on three aspects: (1) Need to let your light shine (2). How our light must shine (3) Rewards for letting our light shine.

1. NEED TO LET OUR LIGHT SHINE
It is a command from the lips of our Lord in order to rescue those who are lost in darkness.
Matt. 5: 14-16; Mark. 16: 15. Matt. 28: 19; Isa 60: 1-3; !Cor. 9: 16; John15:16; Ex.10:22-23; Col.1 :13.

2. HOW OUR LIGHT MUST SHINE
Refuse to put your light under a bushel, you must be spirit filled. Generate more light by prayers and fasting., live a dedicated and holy life you need to humble yourself and study the word of God .
Matt. 5:16; Lk.4:18; Acts10:38; Matt. 17:21Lk.18:1; Job 22:28; Phi!. 2:15; Lk. 1:21; Heb. 12:14; 1 Pet. 5:6; 2Cor. 4:6-7; Rev. 12:7; Lk. 1:26; Ps. 31:23; Ezk. 28:13; 26:13; 2Tim. 2:15; Ps. 107:20; Gen. 1:2-3.

3. REWARDS FOR LETTING OUR LIGHT SHINE
Men will through you glorify God. You will be stars for ever and your reward is not only in heaven is also in this world
Matt. 5:16; Dan. 12:3; Phil. 4:1; Matt. 19:27-29;1Tim.5:18; Heb. 11:6.

Lesson 461

LESSON 461
THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES Part 1

INTRODUCTION:

The Lord Jesus Christ compared Himself to the Vine and we His Children to the branches. God the Father is the Owner of the Vineyard, looking after both the Vine and the branches. The fruitless branches are removed, the fruitful, ones are purged May the Lord bless us richly as we study in Jesus Name. Amen

1. THE BRANCH HAS NO EXCUSE FOR BEING FRUITLESS
There are many resources available to the branch through the Vine, to enable it bear fruits. Infact all that the branches need to be fruitful are available in the Vine. All that is required of the branch therefore is to cooperate with the Vine
John.15:1-2, Ph.4:19, Johnl:7, Rev.12:11, Eph.6:10, Ph.2:9-11,Jn.14: 4, Ph.4:13, I Cor.3:6- 7, I Cor.3;9, Matt.11 :28-30

2. THE HUSBANDMAN THEREFORE HAS GOOD CAUSE TO BE VIOLENT WITH THE FRUITLESS BRANCH
Not only is a lot of resources wasted on the fruitless branch, it is equally guilty of frustrating the aspirations and purposes of the husbandman.
John1:12, Act .10: 38 Jn.15: 16, Mk.16: 15-20

Lesson 462

LESSON 462
THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES Part 2

JOHN. 15: 1-2,5

INTRODUCTION:

In the first part of this series, we saw that fruit-bearing should be easy for the branch because of the tremendous resources and care supplied by the Vine and the Husbandman which explain why the fruitless branch is torn off because it is not fulfilling its purpose hence it is frustrating to the Husbandman. Today, we shall look at the fruitful branch. May God bless us richly as we study in Jesus name. Amen.

1. EVERY GOOD STUDENT IS EXAMINED SO AS TO BE PROMOTED
The fruitful branch is purged, so that it can produce more fruits. This is because every good student goes in for exams so that he could be promoted. We must therefore know the difference between tests from God and temptations from the devil. The tests must be welcomed. Johnl5:1-2,5; Jam.l:2-4; Gen.18:17-19; Gen.22:l-2; Jam.l:13,Gen22:15-18; Dan.1 :3-16; Dan.2 :1-19; Dan.2 :46-49; Dan.3:l3-23 Dan.3:24-30; Dan.6:1-5; Dan.6: 15-l7; Dan.6: 24-28

2. WE ALL NEED PURGING TO GO TO HIGHER GROUNDS
Purging may not be pleasant initially, but it is necessary if we are to go to higher grounds. We need to keep in shape, and to reach perfection.
Heb.12: 4-11; Heb 12:1; 2Pet.1:3-4; 1Cor. 9:27; Mal. 3:3; Heb 5:8-9; Heb 2:9-10.

Lesson 463

LESSON 463
THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES Part 3

JOHN 15:1,2,5

INTRODUCTION:

In the previous part of this series we have looked at the fruitless branch and the fruitful branch. Today want to look at the progression in fruit bearing. May God bless us as we study at His Feet in Jesus name, Amen

I. FROM GLORY TO GLORY
A branch can move from bearing more fruit to much fruit. Just as our faith can move from zero faith to exceeding great faith. In fact the plan of God for our lives is for us to move from glory to glory
John.15: l, Matt.15: 28, Mt.8: 10, 2.Cor.3: l8; 11:1.3

2. ABIDING IN CHRIST CAN LEAD TO SOMETHING BETTER THAN BEST
The conditions for bearing much fruit are for us to abide in Christ and Christ to abide in us. If we abide in Him, our best can even be better
Mt.5: 6; Jos. I: 8, Ps.1:1-3: I Thess. 5:l6-l8 Jude.20; Ps.23:6; Ps.9l:l;14-l5; Mt.5:48, :John.17:l7, Ph.3:l3-l4

Lesson 464

LESSON 464
THE VINE AND BRANCHES (JOHN 15:1,2,5) Part 4

INTRODUCTION:

So far we have considered the fruitless branch and the fruitful branch. We have also considered progression in fruit bearing. Today, we will consider Christ’s statement.-”Without me ye can do nothing.” May the Lord bless us richly as the study in Jesus name. Amen.

1. A MAN WHO HAS CHRIST HAS EVERYTHING
Anyone who has Christ has life, light, Salvation Joy strength, power, wisdom, righteousness sanctification etc. In short anyone who has Christ has everything. and can do anything.
John15:1,2,5; John3:36; John1:4; Ps.27:1; Neh.8:10, 1Cor.1:22-24; 1Cor.1:30; Ph.4:19; Ph.4:13.

2. MAN WITHOUT CHRIST IS GRASS
Man is made from the dust of the earth. At the very best he is like grass and the flowers of grass. He may blossom in the morning and wither before the sun has set. When Christ leaves a man, all that is left is nothing
Gen.3:17-19; Isa. 40:6-8; 1Pet,1:24-25; Ps.90:5-6; Dan.4:30-37;Judges16:18-20;Jos.7:10-12; 1Sam.4:3-11; 1Sam.4:19-22

Lesson 465

LESSON 465
THE CROWNS

INTRODUCTION:

If and when we get to heaven, we shall not be treated as ordinary people but as Kings. And as Kings, we shall wear crowns. These crowns and the conditions for qualifying for them are the subject matter of our study today. May God bless us richly as we study in Jesus name. Amen.

I. GLORIOUS CROWNS, SERIOUS CONDITIONS
There are five glorious crowns mentioned in the Bible waiting for the overcomers in heaven; The conditions for getting them are however rather serious. Which is understandable because precious things do not come cheap.
Rev. 1:4-6; II Tim. 4:8; I Tim. 2:19-20; Phil. 4:1; I Pet. 5:2-4. I Cor.9:25-27; John 2:28; Jam. 1:12, Rev. 2:10; II Cor. 5:10; I Cor. 4:5; I Thess 4:17.

Lesson 466

LESSON 466
THE KINGS AND THEIR THRONES (REV. 3:21)

INTRODUCTION:

Last week we discussed the various Crowns available to us as Kings of the Most High. Today we want to look at the thrones from which we shall reign. May God bless us richly as we study in Jesus name Amen
.
1. THE THRONE OF CHRIST
The throne of our Lord Jesus Christ is in heaven and will be forever. It is a throne of holiness established of old in righteousness and upheld by mercy. He received it from the Ancient of days and shares it with His joint-heirs.
Is.66:1; Ps.ll:14; Ps.45:6; Ps.47:8; Ps.93:2, Pro.16:l3; Pro.20:28: Dan.7:13-14, Rom.8:16-l7; Dan.7:9,22,27
.
2. WE SHALL SHARE HIS THRONE
Who are those who shall share His throne? Those who have followed Him, continued with Him and overcame with Him.
Mt.19:28;Lk.22:28-29; Rev.20:4,Rev.2:26-27 1Cor.6:2-3; Rev.19:11-16; Rev.3:2l.

Lesson 467

LESSON 467
LET YOUR LIGHT SO SHINE

INTRODUCTION:

God is light and the father of it. He dwells in the light unapproachable. In this message we shall talk on (1) The symbol of light and its contrast (2) How to shine as light (3) Reward for letting your light shine. May the Lord bless us as we study at His feet in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

1. THE SYMBOL OF LIGHT AND ITS CONTRAST
Light is the symbol of holiness by contrast while darkness is the symbol of sin, light is glorious and sweet but the victim of darkness is fearful and spiritually dead and blind.
Matt 5:14- 16; 1Pet 2:9; Eph. 5:8; I Pet.1: 1 Heb.12: 14; 2Cor.: 16-18; Matt. 6:24;Jere.6: 16; Ps. 27; 1, Exo10: 22- 23; Acts 17:28; 2Cor.4: 4

2. HOW TO SHINE AS LIGHT
You must have the nature of the father of light, be committed, to evangelize the gospel, and be a practicing Christian. You can generate more light for power through prayers and constantly be in tune with the Holy Spirit. Encourage your children to shine as light.
2Cor.5:17;John.3:3;Col.1:13;Matt.28:19-20; 1Cor.9:16; Eph.5:16; Acts11:26; Zech.4:6; 1Cor.11:1; Prov. 22:6; Joel 2:28

3. REWARDS FOR LETTING YOUR LIGHT SHINE
Mansion in Heaven, Purpose for your life shall be achieved, and you will be a blessing.
John 14:3; 2Cor. 5:1; 1Pet. 1:4; 1Tim. 4:7-8; Gen. 12:2-3.

Lesson 468

LESSON 468
THE KING AND HIS SCEPTRE

INTRODUCTION:

So far we have looked at the King and his Crowns, his throne and his Kingdom. Today, we want to look at something very crucial to the king; the sceptre. May the Lord bless us richly as we study in Jesus name, Amen.

1. THE SCEPTRE IS EQUIVALENT TO THE KING
The Sceptre is equivalent to the king. When you hear of the Sceptre, you are hearing of the King. Because the Sceptre is the quiet but powerful symbol of authority of the King. For us as Christian kings, ours sceptre is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
Gen. 49:10; Num.24:17; Est. 4:10-11; Ph. 2:9-11; Ps.20:5,7,8 1Sam.17:45; Rev. 12:10-11; Lev. 17:11, 1John 1:7; Isa. 59:1-2; John.1:1; 14; Ps. 119:89, Isa. 40:8; Matt. 4:1-11

2. HOLINESS: THE BACKBONE OF THE SCEPTRE
Holiness is the backbone of the Christian’s sceptre because you cannot enthrone a King with fault or weakness whereas the sceptre is no effect in the hand of a backslider.
Heb. 1:8, John 14:30; Dan. 6:3-4; 20-22; Eccl.7:9; Pro.6:25-29; 1Sam. 15:10-24; Pro. 29:25; Heb. 10:29-31.

Lesson 469

LESSON 469
CATEGORIES OF KINGS

INTRODUCTION:

There are kings and there are kings. And of course there is the Kings of Kings. In this concluding study on our series on Kings may the Lord bless us richly. In Jesus name. Amen.

1. THERE ARE CATEGORIES OF KINGS
Every Kings has domain. But even in the same Kingdom one King may be above another, so that a superior king can get a lower King to do the will of him the superior King
Dan. 6:1-2; Gen. 41:39-43; Ps. 105:17-22; Job. 12:13-19; Pro 21:1; 1Kings 18: 17-20; 11 King 6:21-23

2. HOW TO BE THE HIGHEST
Promotion only comes from God. But He does not act arbitrarily He sees what others cannot see, even the hidden thoughts and motives of every man and decides accordingly.
Ps. 75:6- 7; 2Tim. 4:8; 1 Sam. 16:6- 7; Acts 10: 34-35; 1 Sam. 2;7-8; 1 Sam. 13:13-14; 1Sam. 16:1; Dan. 6:3; Dan. 2:20-21

LESSON 470
THE TREE BY THE RIVER SIDE (Ps.1:1-3) Part 1

INTRODUCTION:

Trees are conspicuous in the Scriptures. They are referred to in parables, and used as analogies. As we begin this new series, may the Lord bless us richly in Jesus name, Amen.

1. TREES ARE RICH IN SYMBOLISM.
Several Trees are mentioned in the Scriptures. Prominent among them are the Trees of life, of the knowledge of good and evil, olive, vine, fig, palm and cedar. Many of these are used as symbols to teach us great truths
Ps .1: 1-3, Gen.2:9, Pro.3:13, 18; Prov. 11: 30; Pro.15:4; Ps112:15; 65:22, Hos.14:5-.6; Mt.24:32-33.

2. A TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS FRUIT
A tree is known, not by its sizes, colour or even leaves. A tree that bears fruit is fulfilling its purpose on earth and will find favour with God.
Luke.6.44, Jam.3:I2, Mt 13:31-32, Mt.7:17, Mt.7:18-19; Judges. 9:8-15, Mt. 12:33, Isaiah 56:3-5

LESSON 471
JESUS IS THE WAY (JOHN1:1-4) Part 3

INTRODUCTION:

In the last part of this series we studied the steps to true Blessing. As we continue this study, we would be examining the Way to Health. Christ came to this earth to bring more than a religion, more than code of teachings, more than a system of Christian living. We pray that God would bless us as we study under His feet in Jesus name, Amen
1. THE WORD
Before ever the world was, the Word was; for the Word is God. John1:1 John17: 5; 1John1:1;5,7; Rev .19: 13.The Word is the Creator of all that is, Visible and Invisible – John.1, 3; Col. 16; Rom.1, 20.Therefore perfectly fit to be our way to health and peace.

2. The Way to Health:
Those who believed on Him were born again and made the sons of God thereby, enjoy the perfect health. John1:12-13; Phil.2:15. Disobedience from the Garden of Eden took away perfect health and peace -Gen.3:17-19. Since then humanity had been under curse and live almost all the time on tablets, injections and doctors. Deut.28:22, 27-28; 30, 60, 66-67.
Doctors are good, but the life in Christ and his word is a medicine for our body. Pro.4:20-22; Ps.107:20, Matt 8:8, 13; John 6:63; Acts 14:7-10.
3. How Does the Healing Come? Through the stripes
I Pet.2:24, Isaiah 53:5;
4. How to Receive: By accepting Jesus the way -Ex.15:26; Ps.103:3.

Lesson 472

LESSON 472
FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD Part 2

INTRODUCTION:

No Christian can accomplish any great thing for God, if he has not learnt the art of been alone with God. May the Lord teach us how to be alone with Him in Jesus name, Amen.

1. ALONE WITH GOD
As children of God, we have the priviledge of going into His Room to discuss our plans, our ministry, etc with Him and no one can disturb us.
Heb.4: 16; I Chron.16: 11; Mat. 7:7; Mat 26:41; Luke21: 36 John16: 24;1Thess. 5:17, 1Tim. 2:8

2. EXAMPLES OF THOSE WHO WERE ALONE WITH GOD
It is not impossible to be alone with God more so when there had been people who have tried it and succeeded in doing so and have also achieved great results.
Dan.6:20-22; Dan.3;1-end, I Chor:4;9-10; Kings 19:19-20 Mat.26:38:-39, 40

Lesson 473

LESSON 473
TREE BY THE RIVER SIDE (Ps. 1:1-3) Part 3

INTRODUCTION:

In the second part of this series, we saw the importance of roots to trees. Of much importance than this is the fact that, the source by which trees draw water to satisfy thirst is the root. May the Lord satisfy all our thirst today in Jesus Name. Amen.

1. EVERY MAN THIRSTY DESIRES TO DRINK WATER
Thirst can kill, can kill trees, animals and Man. As water satisfies the physical thirst so also God satisfies the Spiritual thirst of those who are ready to drink from Him.
Is.29:9, Ex. 17:3, Judges.15:18, Is.5:13, Amos 8:11-12, Mt.5:6 ;Jn. 4:13-14, Jn. 7:37-38, Is. 48:20-21, Ps. 42:1-2.

2. YOU CAN DRINK AS MUCH AS YOU DESIRE FROM THE RIVERS OF GOD
Drinking water from the rivers of God makes one happy and it equally satisfies. You can drink as much as you desire since his rivers are filled with water that gives eternal life.
Ps. 46:4, Ps 36:7-8, Ps. 65:9, Jer. 17:7-8, Ezek. 4:7-12, Rev. 22:1-2, Is. 43:19-20.

In the last part of this series, we saw that the tree uses its roots to drink and quench its thirst. We saw also that any man who wants can drink to the full from the river of God. Today as we continue with our study, May God satisfy us in Jesus name, Amen.

1. YOUR SPIRITUAL STANDING GREATLY AFFECTS YOUR PHYSICAL AND MATERIAL WELL-BEING.
The tree by the riverside prospers; its leaves never wither. Similarly, the man by the rivers of God, learning and doing the will of God, will prosper physically, materially and spiritually.
3 Jn. 2, Prov. 4:20-22, Ex. 15:26, Mt. 6:28-33, 2Chron. 9:27, Ps. 112:1-3, Deut.28:1-8; Prov. 3:5-10.

2. IF YOU HAD MOVED AWAY FROM THE RIVERSIDE, RETURN SOONEST
Prosperity is for a purpose, if the purpose is abused; prosperity can become a curse. Fortunately, our God is merciful and is willing to heal backsliders.
Deut. 8:18, Eph. 4:28, Math. 5:26, Lk. 13:6-9, Lk. 12:16-21, Prov.1:32, Jer. 3:21-23, Hos. 14:4-6, Is. 43:1-5.
