True meaning of Christmas

Preacher: Pastor Trevor
Editor: Emmanuel

We have to define what the true meaning of Christmas. Not as the world defines it
Matt 2:4-8
When you are waiting on the Lord, do what the waiters do: serve
How would an unbeliever describe you?
Sometimes we are not ignorant of the word of God but we choose to ignore
We need to have the attitude of the wise men. They came with gift and an attitude of worship.
Attitude of worship is defined by the treasure you give.
Don’t just do Christmas but live Christmas

2. Kingdom perspective:God doesn’t look at our perspective, because he is going to make it far more than what we see
3. Kingdom purity:doing a holy work doesn’t make u holy but your heart being right with God.
4. Kingdom promise: Haggai 2:15-19
After purity and Holiness has been pronounced, blessings follows Jeremiah 22:24-27

The latter will be better than former. Discouragement can come in so quick but you need to find your encouragement in the Lord.
Hagg 2:10-18
There are always weakness regardless of how ‘good’ you think you are. Just because you go for prayer meeting and Bible study doesn’t guarantee that you should have “holy” pride. It should all be because of the love of God.

Holiness + touching != Holiness
Unholiness + touching = unholiness

God wants us to return to him

The worst place to be is when you are right with God and God doesn’t know you

Our love for God should be reignited.
Hagg 2:1-9
When the people were putting their hand to work and build the temple, they discovered that the house of God they are building cannot be compared to that of Solomon. Therefore they were discouraged.
It is very easy to find many people to discourage you than to encourage you. We are living in the world of discouragement. However, God brings a timely word when you need it.

When you are discouraged:
1. Be Strong
2. Work
3. Fear not

After you do all the 3 things above, then God will shake the heavens and the earth.

Is the altar of the Lord repaired?

Preacher: Pastor Trevor
Editor: Emmanuel

We go through tradition but we forget the purpose
Is the altar of the Lord repaired?
Those who put their prosperity above God’s house are blind to God’s chastening hand

First things first Pt 2

Preacher: Pastor Trevor
Editor: Precious Adams

If life becomes a rat race, then it’s a problem because it really matters how you react in the journey of life.
If destination is more important than enjoying the journey, it becomes a problem.
God wasn’t outsourcing his work but he wants us to build it ourself

Consider your ways
1. All those who put their prosperity above God’s house are often committed believers
We can be committed believers and yet be sidetracked
We shouldn’t have a mentality of law but have the mentality of grace

2. Those who put their prosperity above God’s house have reasons (excuses) for their lifestyles
Sometimes blessings become more important than the blesser and that’s not what God wants

1 Kings 18:30
Repair the altar in the proper arrangement
Judges 6:22-27
Get your altar’s right in proper arrangements
