SAHIMO FOR 21/6/19.

“And Saul said, They have brought them from the Am-a-lek-ites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed. Then Samuel said unto Saul, Stay, and I will tell thee what the LORD hath said to me this night. And he said unto him, Say on. And Samuel said, When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel? And the LORD sent thee on a journey, and said, Go and utterly destroy the sinners the Am-a-lek-ites, and fight against them until they be consumed. Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the LORD, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the LORD(Samuel 15:15-19)?”
Our Bible reading portion for our SAHIMO today is another selection from God for you, and we pray that you will open your heart and spiritual ears for God to directly speak to you in the way and manner that you will NOT miss the POINT, but will ALLOW the words to produce health and blessing to your soul, as well as to your body, according to God’s Desire for you today. Amen. For the writer of our SAHIMO, she is very grateful to God for choosing this Bible portion for our SAHIMO today.
We encourage you to read the whole chapter 15 to the end, in order to get a better understanding of the incident that took place here. Samuel here, was a faithful Minister of God, whom God Himself chose to replace Eli, the former prophet of God and the leader. Eli, was also once a faithful prophet of God, leading the children of Israel, until he was rejected of God because he began to TOLERATE SIN, in the house of God, sin actually committed by his two sons who were assisting him in the Temple’s worship. Eli’s children began to covert of the animals that were brought to the Temple for sacrifices to God, Sacrifices that God Commanded Moses that the generation, and the generations following should offer to Him. Eli’s children would take a portion of the animals for themselves, and not the right portions that God commanded that should be for the priest and the officiating Ministers. This stealing of God’s property by these men, and covetous spirit that was in them, was not the only sin that these children of Eli committed in the Temple, the holy House of God. They also were sleeping with some women who used to come to the House of God to worship God! Eli was made to know about all these sinful acts done by his own children, but HE TOOK NO ACTION TO CORRECT THE SITUATION AND STOP THEM FROM CONTINUING TO POLUTE THE HOLY HOUSE OF GOD. RATHER ELI CONTINUE TO ALLOW HIS CHILDREN TO GRIEF THE HEARTS OF THOSE INNOCENT PEOPLE COMING TO WORSHIP THE ALMIGHTY GOD IN FREE SPIRIT, THUS MAKING THE GENERAL ENVIRONMENT UNCOMFORTABLE FOR THE TRUE WORSHIPPERS OF THE LIVING GOD IN THE TEMPLE! How disgusting and grievous can it be too to true Bible Christians today, who may be a witness to the terrible things that Satan may bring to the holy assemblies of believers, and yet, nothing is done to correct the situation and make the environment conducive enough for The holy worship of The Holy God, thus promoting the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ in the eyes of the world! HIM is advising you here, if you are in that type of environment, increase your prayer time to groan on The God of all flesh, begging Him to DEFEND THE GOSPEL OF HIS SON.
So, God replace Eli with a young tender-hearted man, Samuel. Samuel was just a child, when his parents brought him to the Temple to be of help around the work of God there. Samuel grew up around the backslidden Eli, and his two corrupt sons yet, Samuel chose to be clean and sinned not against God. Because of his stand against sin, Samuel found favour in The Sight of God, and was the one that God sent to Eli, the message of his death and the destruction of his two sons that would follow, which was to take place the same day. God could not speak to Eli at this time as He used to do, because sin had blocked the communication line between Him and Eli, therefore God had to call the little Samuel at night and sent him to Eli to inform Eli of the the judgment of his house that He had for Eli. So, Samuel started as early as then to understand the importance of listening to God, to obeying His Voice and to PUTTING IT INTO ACTION EXACTLY as God Commands.
After the sudden death of Eli and his two sons, God Appointed and Anointed Samuel to lead Israel, and when Samuel was old and nearing the end of his life, God spoke to him to anoint Saul, the first king in Israel, to lead the people. God saw Saul a humble and a befitting man to lead His people, and when Saul heard that he was chosen by God to lead the people, Saul expressed his inability to be king, among the people of God, whom he saw as better for the job than him But because the CALL came from God, Saul humbled himself and accepted the position and The Spirit of God came on him. As a sign of the in-filling of The Spirit of God, Saul prophesied before the witnesses, and through the Auction of The Spirit, Saul humbled himself even more and was obedient to God and to God’s messages to him.
But in our reading portion above, we understand that Saul was not the same person he was before God chose him to lead His people! Saul must have gradually disobeyed God and must have gradually sinned against God in his heart, perhaps unknown to anyone, not even to Samuel, until this time of our Bible reading portion above. In this reading portion, God had Commanded Saul to go with his army to Amelek and destroy EVERTHING there, both man and beasts-animals. God made it very clear to Saul that he should NOT spare anybody, or take out anything from the city. Saul and his soldiers destroyed the city and everything that was there, except a few things that Saul coveted in the city which he and his men took home with them. They took some lovely sheep, oxen, and the `chief of the things which should have been destroyed`, according to the report Saul gave to Samuel when Samuel confronted him later. Saul even spared the king of the Amelekites from death, contrary to the Instruction of God to him. When Saul returned from the war, The All-Seeing Eye of God had already seen that Saul did not obey His Instruction to the fullest. God sent Samuel to Saul to `ADDRESS` the situation. Samuel asked Saul if he had done what God commanded him to do, Saul answered that he had done it all. But the sheep that he brought back were bleeping at the background to confirm what God had already made known to Samuel-that Saul did not obey Him to the fullest. Samuel asked Saul about the sheep bleeping, and instead of Saul to own up his sins and repented of it, he defended his sins and even put it on the soldiers who were under him. Saul replied, “I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought A-gag the king of Am’-a-lek, and have utterly destroyed the Am’-a-lek-ites. But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gil’-gal.” We believe you took note of Saul’s reply, that includes him acknowledging that those things they took, “SHOULD HAVE BEEN UTTERLY DESTROYED.” His reply also indicated that, he WAS `INNOCENT`, ONLY HIS MEN WHO TOOK THE SPOIL HOME, WERE GUILTY. This is a serious PROBLEM in our societies today. EVERYBODY IS `INNOCENT` OF ANY CRIME. EVERY SINNER IS `GUILTLESS` OF THE VERY SINS HE OR SHE COMMITS! But the Bible tells us that, `HE THAT COVERETH HIS(or her) SINS SHALL NOT PROSPER, BUT HE THAT CONFESSETH AND FORSAKETH HIS SINS SHALL OBTAIN MERCY(from God and from man). The Bible has made it clear that no sinner will be forgiven of his sins unless he or she is sorry for the sins he has committed, confesses it to God and determines to forsake those sins. How can then a person be sorry for what he has not done wrong? He can only be sorry for what he knows he did very well, but only that he or she is forced by a situation to say sorry, although within him, he knows he is telling lies, and not genuinely sorry, but his sorry is just to obtain a favour or escape punishment. That is not the type of sorry that results in God’s forgiveness for the wrong someone has done, or forgiveness for the sin a sinner has committed. The type of sorry, or the type of repentance that attracts God’s favour, is the one that genuinely comes from the heart. God overlooked the terrible sins that David committed and forgave him all, because David REPENTED WHOLEHEARTEDLY WITH GRIEF, WHEN GOD SENT HIS PROPHET TO HIM TO DISCLOSE HIS SINS TO DAVID. David did not use to waste any time to repent of any small error that God would point to him in his life. David did not waste time to cry unto God for forgiveness. “WASH ME WITH HYSOP..” was his cry when he made mistake, even the ones that are common to man-CHRISTIANS. David even prayed for forgiveness of any unknown fault or mistake he might have committed before God. David’s attitude towards making God happy, made God to refer to him in the Bible as `THE MAN AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART`! David was a great king in Israel, and because of his faithfulness in serving the Lord, God promised him that there shall always be someone from his posterity that will sit on his throne in Israel, and the last One will be THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH-JESUS CHRIST FROM THE LINEAGE OF DAVID! This will take place during The Millenial Reign of Christ during His Second Return to earth. Jeus will be The King on the Throne, SITTING AND JUDGING ALL THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD FOR ONE THOUSAND YEARS. ALL THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD WILL BE HIS ASSISTING JUDGES IN RIGHTEOUSNESS. May you be counted among them. Do you want God to honour you with His unspeakable blessings? HONOUR HIM TOO LIKE DAVID HERE, FIRST AND WATCH OUT FOR THE RESULT. Above all, honour God like Jesus Christ His Son when He was on earth. You may not have this earthly reward in plentiful, BUT YOU WILL NOT LOSE YOUR MANSION AND YOUR CROWN IN HEAVEN, AFTER YOUR LIFE HERE!! If you are still in your sins, REPENT with all your heart and confess them to God. Beg Him for pardon and believe that He will have mercy on you because of the Blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. Have you been forgiven of your sins and the Spirit of God is dwelling in you? Pay attention to His still small voice talking to you daily, and make sure you OBEY Him. If you missed the Voice because might be you did not pray very well that day, He is faithful to speak again to you, either bringing you back to what you have done wrong because you didn’t listen well to Him to have avoided that wrong, or He may speak to you to show you what to do in order to correct a situation that you neglected. Dont disobey Him this second time too, or else, those little neglects and disobediences, can take you back to outright sin, and you once again find yourself, a sinner. If He points you to someone that you have seriously offended, and wants you to go to the person and say sorry to him or to her, don’t ignore Him, just obey, for there lies your blessing. Even if the person is your brethren in the Gospel, don’t assume that he or she will forgive WITHOUT SEEING THAT YOU HAVE REPENTED OF SUCH SERIOUS OFFENCE. Your `SORRY`, can help the person to have confidence that you will not purposely go back to such act that might have caused him so much grief or so much pain. Just believe that, if that sorry was not necessary for you to say, The Spirit of God would not have put it in your heart to go and apologise. If you delay or fail to do so, you are delaying or forfeiting your blessing by the day, and that can cost your soul eternal death at last. To be sharp to hear The Voice of The Spirit of God, you have to get The Abundance of His Presence in and around you, by applying by faith the second time, The Blood of Jesus to remove the SIN-NATURE FROM YOU, inherited by all man, from our fore-parents, Adam and Eve. It is a wonderful Christian Experience and it will cleanse the Saint of God and gives him or her the ability to overcome sin so easily, when temptation or trial comes. It is The Experience that makes a Saint, holy. Endeavour to get the OVERFLOWING PRESENCE OF GOD IN YOU TOO, BY DAILY CONSECRATING YOURSELF TO GOD IN PRAYER AND IN THE READING OF THE WORD OF GOD UNTIL YOU RECEIVE THE `BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST AND FIRE`. The evidence is that of you speaking in a definite language which you have never learnt before. With all these rich Experiences, you are ready to face each day without making many mistakes, by God’s grace. You are ready to face the day, without tripping on peoples’ shoes every now and then, unknowingly. You are ready to hear and avoid mistakes, or feel unhappy to apologise when you make one and are given the opportunity to apologise. You are even ready to forgive easily, even when you are seriously hurt, especially if your offender is humble enough to come to you and ask you for forgiveness. The Bible has not got a space for a `PROUD CHRISTIAN`, so if you are one, know that there is a questionable mark on your Christianity. The Bible says that, `God resisteth the proud, but He giveth grace to the humble. He promoteth the humble, but looketh on the proud, from afar off. He that exalteth himself shall be abased, but he that humbleth himself(or herself), shall be exalted, the Bible has made known of these. Saul in our Bible portion above was a humble man before God called him to a position, but at one time, he even forced himself to perform the work that God only Assigned Samuel, the prophet to do. Dont let any position in life or any wealth put you in the danger of exalting yourself above where God wants you to be. Remember that, PRIDE GOETH BEFORE DESTRUCTION, AND AN HAUGHTY SPIRIT, BEFORE A FALL. It is of God’s interest and love for you that you prosper or do well in life. When you receive His blessing, no matter how `small`, be grateful to Him, and thank Him for it. Be content with that while you may be praying for more to come to you NATURALLY-FROM THE SAME GOD, AND NOT THROUGH YOUR SINFUL EFFORTS.
BUY God’s additional Love and Care for your life, BY walking with Him in humility and in obedience!

SAHIMO FOR 19/07/19

"And Jeph’-thah said unto the elders of Gil’-e-ad, Did not ye hate me, and expel me out of my father’s house? And why are ye come unto me now when ye are in distress? And the elders of Gil’-e-ad said unto Jeph’-thah, Therefore we turn again to thee now, that thou mayest go with us, and fight against the children of Ammon, and be our head over all the in-habitants of Gil’-e-ad(Judges11:7&8).”
We would like to confess to you here, the dilemma that the writer of our SAHIMO today faced when she was trying to use the usual method to get the Bible portion and verses for our SAHIMO, from God today. She found her finger on an empty space at the bottom of the page, when she opened her eyes. So she had to adjust to the page that looked like the alternative, still in the Book of Judges where her other finger was.
Generally, we are not familiar with the Bible portion of today, except for that fact that, Jephthah fought the war and won at last(though the victory cost him something). Time does not permit us to read the passage to refresh our memory on this story. So, we are going to base our writing on the two verses above, and mainly on HATRED and FORGIVENESS. The elders of Gilead hated Jephthah, and expelled him out of his father’s house, but when they were faced with battle, they went looking for Jephthah to come and fought for them, just as the two verses above report. The result of that battle, according to our Biblical knowledge, proved that, these elders did trust Jephthah to be able to deliver them from their enemies. Now, let’s start from these last two words, “their enemies.” The two words let us know that even the elders, later had some enemies. But before that, the elders were enemies with Jephthah, and later, they too were hated by the people that waged war against them. The lesson we learn here is that, you should try as much as humanly possible to live in peace with everybody on earth, that is the admonition that the Bible gives. God also knows that it is IMPOSSIBLE to be at peace with some people, because it is IMPOSSIBLE to please everybody in life, and that is why the Bible uses the phrase, `live peaceably with all men as much as lieth in your own strength...` . God knows when you would have done EVERYTHING necessary to be done, in order to make that man or that woman to be at peace with you, but no, he or she rebels with all his, or with all her strength too, to be at war with you, sometimes WITHOUT ANY JUSTIFIABLE REASON! Do your very best NOT to hurt someone, purposely, and when you have reached this stage, LEAVE THE BATTLE IN GOD’S HAND TO FIGHT FOR YOU AND WIN THE VICTORY! Even when you have missed a step or two, and offended someone, go to God for forgiveness, and if He puts it in your heart to go and meet the person you offended and sincerely apologise, DON’T WASTE TIME, JUST OBEY. Do all you can to win the person back to peace, but if the person refuses to settle with you, MOVE ON WITHOUT GUILT AND BELIEVE THAT THE PERSON’S PLOT TO REVENGE YOU AT ANY POINT, WILL MEET WITH LESS OR WITH NO HURT TO YOU. God FORGIVES THE VILLEST SINNER WHO COMES TO HIM IN REPENTANCE, HOW MUCH MORE MAN. TRY AND BE IN THE SPIRIT OF FORGIVENESS, ALWAYS. Having said this, many people on earth today are selfish and careless in relationships-be it marital, friendship, employment etc. They could be in contrast to the people they are in the relationships with. The people they are relating with could be those that are careful in words or in deeds to make sure they don’t offend, but instead of receiving same treatment from the others, they get the opposite from the other people, every so often. The others seem to be in the OFFENSIVE habit, while the opposite ones, are in the RECEIVING and the SUFFERING side. Even God, in all His WONDERFUL CHARACTERISTICS as the Creator, has a limit for a persisting sinner, and stops somewhere to pay a sinner `back` for his or for her sins. God does not really PAY BACK, for no sinner, or a careless Saint, can PAY THE FULL PRICE FOR THE SIN OR FOR THE MISTAKE HE OR SHE DOES. That is the Heart of a MERCIFUL FATHER IN HEAVEN! But how then can a sinner or a Saint of God walk together in love, in unity, and in peace with all those that he or she comes in contact with? Let’s start with the Saint of God. First of all, MAKE SURE YOU ARE TRUELY WHAT YOU WANT PEOPLE TO BELIEVE YOU ARE-ACCORDING TO YOUR PROFESSION! A Saint of God is on earth to REPRESENT the Nature of God, as much as humanly possible. God is holy, and the Saint of God obtains a frction of God’s holiness by having his or her sins forgiven by God. That Saint of God presses forward in prayer, to have his or her soul cleansed by That God, still through The Blood of Jesus Christ His Son(this is Second work of grace, called SANCTIFICATION, where the Adamic Nature or the root of sin, is uprooted from him). It is at THIS point that the heart is made PURE, almost like that of God The Divine. It is at this point that such heart will love everybody, and makes all efforts to live in peace and in unity with everyone, ESPECIALLY IN THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH-CHURCH, where brethren have the opportunity hear the Sound truth and to practice same DOCTRINE. It is at SUCH point that the SANCTIFIED heart will be able to bear, tolerate, and overlooks some faults or offenses that no other heart can. THIS type of heart has NO ROOM FOR ANY REVENGE, BUT LEAVES ALL REVENGE INTO THE HAND OF THE GOD HE OR SHE IS SERVING. If at any time, God calls him or her into playing a role or two, to alert the offender, especially a persistent offender, that what he or she is doing is receiving God’s attention for greater punishment, if he or she does not repent, then SUCH a heart should respond to God accordingly, and does as God puts in his or in her heart to do to the offender. To retain such PURE heart, the Saint MUST SPEND SOME QUALITY TIME WITH HIS GOD IN PRAYER, AT LEAST TWICE A DAY(MORNING AND EVENING). He or she, MUST READ AND MEDITATE ON THE WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE, DAILY, AND KEEPS APPLYING IT TO HIMSELF OR TO HERSELF. The Saint MUST PAY GOOD ATTENTION TO THE PROMPTINGS OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD, WARNING HIM OR HER WHEN HE OR HER WANTS TO STEP INTO WRONG PATH OR DO WRONG THINGS, THEN OBEY. But in the case that he or she would have missed such warning, through carelessness(often because he or she did not pray very well that morning), he or she must listen to The Spirit of God, coming around the second time to reveal to his or to her heart, that, he or she had mad a mistake. At that point, he or she must repent and ask God for forgiveness. The Saint MUST LEAN HEAVILY ON GOD FOR DIRECTIONS, GUIDANCE, INSTRUCTIONS, GRACE AND TAKES COMFORT FROM HIM WHEN GOING THROUGH ONE AFFLICTION OR THE OTHER, SO THAT HE OR SHE DOES NOT TAKE A DECISION THAT COULD MAKE HIM OFFEND HIS OR HER GOD, WHICH LATER COULD LEAD HIM OR HER INTO AN OUTRIGHT SIN. The Saint should CONSECRATE his or her life to God daily. THIS IS THE PERSON THAT WILL MAKE LESSER MISTAKES ON HIS OR ON HER CHRISTIAN JOURNEY TO HEAVEN, AND WILL OFFEND PEOPLE LESS!!!
Let’s say a few about a non-Christian’s relationship with other people. The first thing for anybody who does not take pleasure in offending people, would be a DESIRE NOT TO OFFEND ANYBODY. Just have the mind to live friendly and in peace with everybody. Back up your desire with a bit of WORK. Exercise your heart to be free from hatred and offenses. Determine to smile at anyone that comes your way, who looks unfriendly. You could make him smile back to you, and for a moment, forget about his bad day, if he was having one. If you cant smile, don’t frown at him because his countenance is unfriendly and unwelcome. Watch out that you make no mistake around him to add to his bad day, rather, if there is an immediate help you can offer to brighten the day, whisper a prayer in your heart to God to lead you in your reaction, bearing in mind that not EVERY NEEDY PERSON, NEEDS OR WANTS YOUR HELP. That brings us to another point on what a sinner should do in his relationship with others. Everybody can talk, if not verbally, in writing, that is when dealing with another human being. But TALKING to God is NOT limited to just verbal communication or written, you can communicate with The Almighty even on your mind. The good thing is that HE IS PLEASED TO READ YOUR PRAYER REQUEST THAT IS ON YOUR MIND, BEFORE YOU EVEN TALK IT OUT. HE IS WAITING TO GRANT YOU YOUR HEART DESIRE, ACCORDING TO HIS KNOWLEDGE THAT GRANTING YOU SUCH, WILL NOT BRING MORE PROBLEMS TO YOU! So let your points of prayer include a plea that God should help you not to offend anybody today. Say that to God every morning as you get out of your bed, before you start the day. Spend a little time to pray to God each morning, casting all your cares on Him. It is a precious way to begin the day.
Let’s return to our story of the day about Jephthah. How would you have responded to the elders of Gil’-e-ad, if you were driven out of your father’s house by them, and now they need your help? The incentive in their request could make many people forget about the pain these elders caused them, and accept to go with them and fight. The elders had promised that they would make Jephthah to be their leader. Some people who are hungry for position and are position-seekers, would immediately accept to go with the elders and fight, without waiting a minute to consider that the war may claim their lives and offers them no chance to go home and rule over the people. All they are thirsty of, is POSITION! How often does position, money, pride, hatred put many people into a more serious danger and problem they did not even have before fighting and obtaining those things! Be warned that, any of such things that God is NOT pleased with to give to you, NATURALLY AND OUT OF HIS PERFECT WILL FOR YOU, WILL BRING YOU NO PLEASURE TOO, BUT COULD BRING YOU TROUBLE! Before you hurt somebody, don’t forget to embrace the fact that, anybody can be useful to you, one way or the other, and at any stage of life. TREAT ALL HUMAN WITH GOD’S FEAR, LEST YOU FALL A VICTIM IN INTO THEIR HAND SOMEDAY, AS YOU SEARCH FOR A HUMAN `DELIVERER` TO HELP YOU. Again, we understand that many people on earth these days, are VERY DIFFICULT TO PLEASE. ALL THEY WANT IS FIGHT, EVEN WHEN THEY ARE THE CAUSE OF YOUR PROBLEM, THEY WANT TO KEEP FIGHTING. Some people are actually FIGHTER, WITH FIGHTING SPIRIT. They want to fight, when nothing concerns them to worth the fight. They go everywhere and look around to see which person’s affairs they could get involved in and throw in their own dirt! They feel uncomfortable when they are calm and have nothing to war about! With such people, THERE IS HELP FROM GOD FOR YOU, THE PEACEFUL ONEWHOM THEY WANT TO DISTURB WITH THEIR UNRESTFUL SPIRIT. GOD WILL DELIVER YOU FROM THEIR SELFISH, UNTHINKABLE AND UNREASONABLE WICKED PLOTS AGAINST YOU. ALL THEIR LABOUR AND STRUGGLES TO HURT YOU, SHALL MEET WITH GOD’S HAND OF DEFENCE AND OF DESTRUCTION, ON YOUR BEHALF.
Well, in our Bible portion above, Jephthah FORGAVE the elders, and went with them to the battle, and won. The elders did a commendable thing after that-THEY KEPT THEIR PROMISE AND MADE JEPHTHAR TO RULE OVER THEM! Do you keep your promises? Are you one of the people who may be quick to make promises, because after all, they say, `it’s just words of mouth`? Why not try and see if you can take after God’s Image, a bit? God is a PROMISE-KEEPER, and you are called by Him to claim all His Promises in the Bible, all free of charge. Let’s rehearse some of His promises here: 1) He that covereth his(or her) sins shall not prosper, but whoso confesseth and forsaketh his sins, shall have mercy(God will forgive you). 2) Call upon Me in the times of trouble, and I will deliver thee(call Him in prayer, to solve your problems). 3) I am the Lord that healeth thee(He wants to be your healer). 4) No weapon that is fashioned against thee shall prosper, but every tongue that riseseth up in judgement against thee, thou shall condemn(He is your defender). 5) I will contend with them that contend with thee(He will fight against your enemies, and ofcourse, will wound them and deliver you from their hands). 6) I go to prepare a place for you, and will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there shall ye be also.
Hallelujah! SOMEONE-JESUS CHRIST, IS BUSY NOW BUILDING MANSIONS FOR ALL THE SAINTS THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME AND REMAIN PURE UNTIL HE COMES BACK TO THE EARTH TO TAKE THEM TO HEAVEN FOR THEIR MAINSION. Are you interested for a Mansion in Heaven with Jesus? The alternative of living with Jesus in Heaven, is LIVING WITH SATAN, YOUR NUMBER ONE ENEMY, IN THE TORURE OF FIRE, ETERNALLY. I pray you will not go for that alternative, for you will NOT be able to ENDURE! Today is the best time to prepare for a MANSION IN HEAVEN!
BUY your Mansion BY praying to God to forgive your sins and to keep you pure until He comes back to take you to The Mansion.

SAHIMO FOR 21/6/19.

“And Saul said, They have brought them from the Am-a-lek-ites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed. Then Samuel said unto Saul, Stay, and I will tell thee what the LORD hath said to me this night. And he said unto him, Say on. And Samuel said, When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel?

Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the LORD, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the LORD(Samuel 15:15-19)?”
Our Bible reading portion for our SAHIMO today is another selection from God for you, and we pray that you will open your heart and spiritual ears for God to directly speak to you in the way and manner that you will NOT miss the POINT, but will ALLOW the words to produce health and blessing to your soul, as well as to your body, according to God’s Desire for you today. Amen. For the writer of our SAHIMO, she is very grateful to God for choosing this Bible portion for our SAHIMO today.

Samuel asked Saul about the sheep bleeping, and instead of Saul to own up his sins and repented of it, he defended his sins and even put it on the soldiers who were under him. Saul replied, “I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought A-gag the king of Am’-a-lek, and have utterly destroyed the Am’-a-lek-ites. But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gil’-gal.” We believe you took note of Saul’s reply, that includes him acknowledging that those things they took, “SHOULD HAVE BEEN UTTERLY DESTROYED.” His reply also indicated that, he WAS `INNOCENT`, ONLY HIS MEN WHO TOOK THE SPOIL HOME, WERE GUILTY. This is a serious PROBLEM in our societies today. EVERYBODY IS `INNOCENT` OF ANY CRIME. EVERY SINNER IS `GUILTLESS` OF THE VERY SINS HE OR SHE COMMITS! But the Bible tells us that, `HE THAT COVERETH HIS(or her) SINS SHALL NOT PROSPER, BUT HE THAT CONFESSETH AND FORSAKETH HIS SINS SHALL OBTAIN MERCY(from God and from man). The Bible has made it clear that no sinner will be forgiven of his sins unless he or she is sorry for the sins he has committed, confesses it to God and determines to forsake those sins. How can then a person be sorry for what he has not done wrong? He can only be sorry for what he knows he did very well, but only that he or she is forced by a situation to say sorry, although within him, he knows he is telling lies, and not genuinely sorry, but his sorry is just to obtain a favour or escape punishment. That is not the type of sorry that results in God’s forgiveness for the wrong someone has done, or forgiveness for the sin a sinner has committed. The type of sorry, or the type of repentance that attracts God’s favour, is the one that genuinely comes from the heart. God overlooked the terrible sins that David committed and forgave him all, because David REPENTED WHOLEHEARTEDLY WITH GRIEF, WHEN GOD SENT HIS PROPHET TO HIM TO DISCLOSE HIS SINS TO DAVID. David did not use to waste any time to repent of any small error that God would point to him in his life. David did not waste time to cry unto God for forgiveness. “WASH ME WITH HYSOP..” was his cry when he made mistake, even the ones that are common to man-CHRISTIANS. David even prayed for forgiveness of any unknown fault or mistake he might have committed before God. David’s attitude towards making God happy, made God to refer to him in the Bible as `THE MAN AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART`! David was a great king in Israel, and because of his faithfulness in serving the Lord, God promised him that there shall always be someone from his posterity that will sit on his throne in Israel, and the last One will be THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH-JESUS CHRIST FROM THE LINEAGE OF DAVID! This will take place during The Millenial Reign of Christ during His Second Return to earth. Jeus will be The King on the Throne, SITTING AND JUDGING ALL THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD FOR ONE THOUSAND YEARS. ALL THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD WILL BE HIS ASSISTING JUDGES IN RIGHTEOUSNESS. May you be counted among them. Do you want God to honour you with His unspeakable blessings? HONOUR HIM TOO LIKE DAVID HERE, FIRST AND WATCH OUT FOR THE RESULT. Above all, honour God like Jesus Christ His Son when He was on earth. You may not have this earthly reward in plentiful, BUT YOU WILL NOT LOSE YOUR MANSION AND YOUR CROWN IN HEAVEN, AFTER YOUR LIFE HERE!! If you are still in your sins, REPENT with all your heart and confess them to God. Beg Him for pardon and believe that He will have mercy on you because of the Blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. Have you been forgiven of your sins and the Spirit of God is dwelling in you? Pay attention to His still small voice talking to you daily, and make sure you OBEY Him. If you missed the Voice because might be you did not pray very well that day, He is faithful to speak again to you, either bringing you back to what you have done wrong because you didn’t listen well to Him to have avoided that wrong, or He may speak to you to show you what to do in order to correct a situation that you neglected. Dont disobey Him this second time too, or else, those little neglects and disobediences, can take you back to outright sin, and you once again find yourself, a sinner. If He points you to someone that you have seriously offended, and wants you to go to the person and say sorry to him or to her, don’t ignore Him, just obey, for there lies your blessing. Even if the person is your brethren in the Gospel, don’t assume that he or she will forgive WITHOUT SEEING THAT YOU HAVE REPENTED OF SUCH SERIOUS OFFENCE. Your `SORRY`, can help the person to have confidence that you will not purposely go back to such act that might have caused him so much grief or so much pain. Just believe that, if that sorry was not necessary for you to say, The Spirit of God would not have put it in your heart to go and apologise. If you delay or fail to do so, you are delaying or forfeiting your blessing by the day, and that can cost your soul eternal death at last. To be sharp to hear The Voice of The Spirit of God, you have to get The Abundance of His Presence in and around you, by applying by faith the second time, The Blood of Jesus to remove the SIN-NATURE FROM YOU, inherited by all man, from our fore-parents, Adam and Eve. It is a wonderful Christian Experience and it will cleanse the Saint of God and gives him or her the ability to overcome sin so easily, when temptation or trial comes. It is The Experience that makes a Saint, holy. Endeavour to get the OVERFLOWING PRESENCE OF GOD IN YOU TOO, BY DAILY CONSECRATING YOURSELF TO GOD IN PRAYER AND IN THE READING OF THE WORD OF GOD UNTIL YOU RECEIVE THE `BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST AND FIRE`. The evidence is that of you speaking in a definite language which you have never learnt before. With all these rich Experiences, you are ready to face each day without making many mistakes, by God’s grace. You are ready to face the day, without tripping on peoples’ shoes every now and then, unknowingly. You are ready to hear and avoid mistakes, or feel unhappy to apologise when you make one and are given the opportunity to apologise. You are even ready to forgive easily, even when you are seriously hurt, especially if your offender is humble enough to come to you and ask you for forgiveness. The Bible has not got a space for a `PROUD CHRISTIAN`, so if you are one, know that there is a questionable mark on your Christianity. The Bible says that, `God resisteth the proud, but He giveth grace to the humble. He promoteth the humble, but looketh on the proud, from afar off. He that exalteth himself shall be abased, but he that humbleth himself(or herself), shall be exalted, the Bible has made known of these. Saul in our Bible portion above was a humble man before God called him to a position, but at one time, he even forced himself to perform the work that God only Assigned Samuel, the prophet to do. Dont let any position in life or any wealth put you in the danger of exalting yourself above where God wants you to be. Remember that, PRIDE GOETH BEFORE DESTRUCTION, AND AN HAUGHTY SPIRIT, BEFORE A FALL. It is of God’s interest and love for you that you prosper or do well in life. When you receive His blessing, no matter how `small`, be grateful to Him, and thank Him for it. Be content with that while you may be praying for more to come to you NATURALLY-FROM THE SAME GOD, AND NOT THROUGH YOUR SINFUL EFFORTS.
