QUESTIONS & ANSWERS SESSIONS:
1. ON RESTITUTION.
You can’t keep using the things you stole even though God forgave you; you have to return them if they are in good condition. There are sins against God and against men. God holds us to account for sins against brethren.
It’s only through the word of God that you can know God.
It’s not about the opportunity to restitute, but the knowledge of God’s word. God will surely guide you in the way to go about what you need to do.
2. ON RELATING WITH GAY.
There is no specific class for gay. Nobody was born gay, same way no one was born a thief or a drunkard. These are all activities.
You can be friends (associate) with anyone but your friendship with such people is limited. Anyone who doesn’t love the Lord Jesus cannot have fellowship with me.
MESSAGE OF THE MONTH
Proverbs 4:13 “Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.”
Proverbs 6:23 “For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:”
Proverbs 10:17 “He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth.”
WHAT IS INSTRUCTION?
Instruction is the direction of discipline that imparts knowledge and skill.
By direction, it means to give direction. Skill is science – the ability to produce solutions. Instruction ultimately imparts knowledge and skill.
2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
God’s word can give you instruction – God’s way of life. This instruction includes doctrine, reproof, correction and training in righteousness.
OCTOBER IS THE MONTH OF INSTRUCTION.
God didn’t really say, give me your time. He said “give me your heart”.
Everything we do has to do with purpose. Why do we do what we do and what you expect God to do.
YOU NEED TWO KINDS OF PRAYER:
1. A time of prayer dedicated to talking to God. At this point you aren’t necessarily prepared to hear Him; He may not say anything to you but you must be prepared. Such prayer is about bearing out hearts to God. And all of us have that time.
This is like a religious life. This kind of prayer instills spiritual discipline.
2. LIVING PRAYER.
In living prayer, you’re in deep and constant fellowship and alot of times you’re not even praying out but God sees your heart.
This one is so important because it is your living experience with the Holy Spirit. And it is where most of life’s personal questions are answered.
At such times you’d need to write the revelations down as they come from God.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 “…That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”
Perfect here means that the man of God may be up-to-date/well equipped.
God wants each one of us to be up-to-date with the Spirit and the word of God has the capacity to get you there.
God can talk to you about your Cell, your family, finances and business. Never ignore what God tells you even though it looks small. It’s interesting to know that He does the biggest things in the smallest ways.
This month is important for you because God has a plan for you.
