The Imperative of the Presence of God

27/01/2019 Sunday service sermon @ The King’s Glory Centre, King’s Lynn Preacher - Pastor Blessing The presence of God is tangible and can be sort, acquired, retained and lost. If you must lose anything, do not lose the Presence of God. Gen. 39:1-2 Joseph was a slave but became prosperous because God was with him. Without God's presence, you are limited, vulnerable, exposed. Acts 12:1-20 Peter's chains fell off at the presence of God. There are habits people are struggling with. The prescription is to seek the presence of God. In life there are gates - dreams you have, ambitions etc. If you have the presence of God those gates will open just like the iron gate opened on its own due to the presence of God around Peter. But why did he allow the angel depart? When he eventually got to his people the door didn't open; he kept knocking. Where the presence of God is absent, frustration is inevitable. Ps. 16:11The path of life is in the presence of God. There is ful

Why God Lets You Go Through A Long Journey

20/10/19 @ The King's Glory Church, King's Lynn, Norfolk Preaching - Pastor Oladapo Adegoke Theme 2019: Year of Clarity - Sons of Issachar understood the times Why God will let you go through a long journey 1. He knows what He's building; to develop you E.g. Joseph - from his dreams, to the pit, to Potiphar's house, to the prison, to becoming Egypt’s Prime Minister 2. He knows what you'll face in future. E.g. he took the Israelites through a longer route to Canaan so that they wouldn’t turn back to Egypt when challenges came. 3. So that you could learn obedience. E.g. Abraham had to move before getting further instructions. He obeyed although He could not see the end. 4. God takes you through process so you can impact people around you. 5. So that He can take the glory. What to do when going through  1. Praise God at all times. 2. You have to know where you are 3. Approach the throne of grace with confidence I add: When going through, do not grumble or compla

Paulo by Radiant

Who remembers the age-long Nollywood movie "Living in Bondage"? I think it was the first Nollywood movie I ever watched. And who remembers the scene where Andy (Kenneth Okonkwo) was asked to bring the head of his wife for the money ritual which his friend, Paul had lured him into? Andy exclaimed "Paulo, Paulo, Paul akowarolum ife a ofuma" meaning Paul did not explain this thing properly. I never forgot that line. The movie had such impact on us kids, that we formed many songs around it including the following:  Living in bondage (clap clap clap clap) Part 1 and Part 2 (clap clap clap clap) Merit anwugo (clap clap clap clap) O bu onye gburu ya (clap clap clap clap) Andy Okeke (clap clap clap clap) Tufiakwa! Andy Tufiakwa! Andy (Interpretation) Living in Bondage Part 1 and Part 2 Merit is dead Who killed her? Andy Okeke Abomination! Andy Abomination! Andy Who remembers this song? It's many years past and I still can'

Marriage 101: How Resentment Breeds

Why are you frowning?, hubby asks. I quickly construct a fake smile and reply, I am not frowning. Should I be smiling all the time?  In my mind, so someone cannot afford to frown. You just have to notice. Then I hear in my spirit You have no right to be angry when you can not articulate what the problem is. Do you recognise this scenario? Many times we are angry about something but cannot really explain to the other what it is we are angry about. How do we expect them to understand and to apologise? We think they should just know that they’ve hurt us.  The following scriptures come to mind. Love is not resentful - 1 Cor 13:5 Be angry and sin not. Do not let the sun go down on your wrath - Eph 4:26 Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you - Heb 12:15 I do not want to allow the devil a door into my marriage. So I ask for grace to confess my unhappiness to my husband and God grants me utterance. I lied. Yes I was frowning. I was angry. I am angry ,  I confess
