“COVENANT REALITY”
Pastor Taiwo @ Sunday Services

Covenant reality for believers is when their realities begin to conform to what God has said concerning them. And this reality is sealed by the shed blood of Jesus Christ and made possible at salvation. Pastor Taiwo said this at the January 21 Sunday service. “There are certain things that are yours by virtue of the covenant. The day you give your life to Christ, the ability to achieve them is activated,” he said.
Speaking from Hebrews 13:20–21 and using Abraham’s calling in Genesis 12 as an illustration, he said that God always comes with a covenant when He is about to change one’s reality positively. According to him, God’s calling to mankind is a relationship with Him, and this is what happens at the point of salvation. Once one yields to that call, the person’s reality begins to conform to God’s word. “When you are in covenant with Him, He will make you fit for every good work, and makes you live in the reality of that covenant,” he stated.
He then urged them not to belittle themselves since they are covenant children of God.
Pastor Taiwo’s full messages are available on CDs and DVDs at The Fountain of Life Church Tape Shop.

 

“WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT”
Pastor Nomthi @ Sunday Services

While admonishing the congregation at the January 21 Sunday service from the promise for the week in Jeremiah 33:3, Pastor Nomthi said that God has a lot of things to reveal to His children if they would only ask Him.

According to her, no human invention can solve anyone’s problems like God, and He is willing to reveal solutions to His own if they would ask. “God will yet do something that will blow your mind, if only you would call unto him. No man can help you like God. If you ask Him, He will definitely show you great and mighty things,” she said.

She urged them to always go to God for solutions about everything and anything. “Your answers are in the word of God. So if you want to be a solution and add to the advancement of humanity, ask God and He will show you,” she stated.

 

“GOD’S COVENANT”
Pastor Taiwo @ Thursday Showers

In continuation of his teaching on Covenant Realities, Pastor Taiwo, at the January 18 Thursday Showers service noted that as much as God is loving and giving and will not forget His covenant with His own, He expects His children to always believe and appreciate Him. “When God loves you, you can expect anything from Him. That is His covenant and it can never fail; but He also expects appreciation from those He gives to,” he said.

Speaking from John 3:16, 1 John 4:17 and Ephesians 2:4, he said that God is always the initiator of covenant and will ensure He fulfils it. According to him, covenant makes the believer unique. “You can never initiate a covenant with God; he always initiates covenant,” he stated.

He then urged all not to give up on God as He will never forget His covenant with them. “God will not give you what you cannot do. Through the blood of His everlasting covenant, He will always make you do His will,” he said.

 

“WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT”
Pastor Nomthi @ Sunday Services

Pastor Nomthi, while encouraging worshippers at the January 18 Thursday Showers service, said that God does not forget His creation, just as a mother does not forget her children. He, according to her, always interferes in the affairs of His children. “God loves His children who are diligently searching for Him,” she said.

Using Apostle Paul’s astonishment of God’s impartial dealing with Cornelius as recorded in Acts 10:34-36 as an illustration, she said that God gives equal grace to all His children; but for those who keep up with the covenant, searching till they are filled, they keep opening up to more grace. “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter but it is the glory of kings to search it out. In order to get more, you just need to keep digging,” she stated.

She however warned them not to be envious of other people’s grace, neglecting their seeming little ‘piece’ of grace.
