Celebration of Christ: Jesus, our Bridegroom
There is time for everything: time for fasting and time for celebration. In the gospel of Matthew 9:14-15, the disciples of John asked Jesus, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” Jesus answered them, “Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come, when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.” Our Lord Jesus Christ is our Bridegroom. We are married to him. With Jesus on own side our period of mourning is over! With Jesus, it is going to be celebration all through. He will not even allow anybody to condemn you. It shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!
Inspirational Message: No matter the charges people are bringing against you, Jesus will never allow anyone to condemn you.
Prayer for Divine defense: Lord Jesus Christ, when you were in the world you did not allow anyone to condemn your disciples. Even when the disciples of John and the Pharisees brought charges against them on ritual fasting you defended them. Lord Jesus you are indeed the Defender of the defenseless and the Voice of the voiceless. Lord, do not allow the enemies to condemn us. As you continue to defend us from all the charges of our enemies may your name be glorify forever in Jesus name – Amen!
Prophetic Message: Your Light shall break forth like the dawn
True fasting is a fasting that affects the life of others positively. It is the only way we can break the yoke of darkness. It is also the surest way we can get connected with the Most High God through prayer. In Isaiah 58:l-9 the Lord declares: “Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh? Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you, the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; you shall cry, and he will say, Here I am.” Child of God, as long as your fasting is acceptable by the Most High God, and as long as you are ready to share your bread with the hungry, your light must surely break forth like the dawn. The Lord will surely answer your prayers and it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the friend of Tax Collectors
Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Saviour of the entire world. His mission was not to condemn people but to save sinners. In the gospel of Luke 5:27-32 as Jesus was eating with tax collectors, the Pharisees and their scribes murmured against his disciples, saying, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” Jesus answered them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Child of God, have you ever imagined what would become of you if not for Jesus. If not for Jesus people would have condemned us alongside with tax collectors. As long as our Lord Jesus Christ is concerned nobody can condemn us. The only way to show appreciation for what Christ did for us is to give our lives completely to him. As you do so it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!
Inspirational Message: If Jesus could accept the Tax Collectors, who says He will not accept you? As long as Jesus is concerned, there is still hope for you!
Prayer for Outcasts and Sinners: Lord Jesus Christ, your coming into the world has brought an end to all forms of discriminations. You abolished caste system. For you, we all are one before God. Nobody is an outcast. Even the tax collectors were recognized. You even ate with tax collectors and sinners. By so doing you proved to the world that you came to save both the righteous and sinners. Lord, we have so many outcasts in our world today, people who are still suffering from one discriminations or another. So many people are even rejected because of their religious and cultural background. Lord, deliver our world from all forms of discrimination. Open our eyes to see your beauty and your image in every human being. Grant this through Christ our Lord – Amen!
Prophetic Message: The Lord will guide you Continually
In Isaiah 58: 9c-14, the LORD declares, “If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. And the LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your desire with good things, and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in.” Child of God, the ball is in your court. As long as you are ready to feed the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, the Lord will surely guide you. He will make your bone strong and He will satisfy your desire with good things; and it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

We have so many preachers in the world today. Among them are prosperity preachers. We only have few kingdom preachers. Kingdom preachers are those who promotes the message of God’s kingdom. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Master of Kingdom preacher. When he started the public ministry in the gospel of Mark 1:14 he declares, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the Gospel.” Since the kingdom of God is at hand all we need to do is to repent from our evil ways and then deepen our faith in the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

After the flood which the Lord used to wipe away the wicked ones from the face of the earth, in Genesis 9:8-15, the Lord assured Noah, “I set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.”Child of God, as long as you are as righteous Noah the Lord will not allow you to perish with the wicked. You will not die a shameful death. God will not allow you to drawn. He protect and guide you all the days of your life, in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the fairest Judge
There are so many judges in the world but our Lord Jesus Christ remain the fairest Judge the world has ever known. In the gospel of Matthew 25:31—46, he said “When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left. “The glorious throne here is the throne of judgment. It is from this throne that our Lord Jesus Christ will pass the final judgment. Charity remains the basis of his judgment. On judgment day no one will ask us how much we have in bank or our academic qualification but how many people we touched their lives and how many people we visited in their needs. God bless you as you prepare to meet your Judge.
Inspirational Message: On judgment day nobody will ask you how much you have but how much you love.

Fill our hearts with the spirit of love. Make us charitable as you are charitable. Grant this through Christ our Lord – Amen.

Holiness is a divine attribute. Our God is a Holy God. He is the Most Holy Being the world has ever known. Children of God are called to live a holy life. That is the only way they can live like God.

May He use the precious blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ to purify you. From today you shall be holy as your heavenly Father is holy. And it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Master of Prayer Life
Our Lord Jesus Christ is a prayerful Man. He is also the Master of Prayer. In the gospel of Matthew 6:7-15 he taught his disciples the essential principles of prayer: “In praying, he said, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do… Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” Prayer is all about faith and now empty words. With prayer, every word that comes out of your mouth will carry fire.
Instead of using empty words in prayer our Lord Jesus Christ taught his disciples to pray like this: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come…” This is the best form of prayer. It contains all the relevant aspect of prayer. Our Lord’s prayer covers our entire needs. All we need to do is to recite this prayer with faith. As we do so God will surely answer us in Jesus – Amen!
Inspirational Message: The difference between prayer and poem recitation is in faith not in words.
Prayer for the gift of prayer: Lord Jesus Christ you taught your disciples the importance of prayer. You even thought them how they should pray. Lord we cannot do without prayer. We need prayer more than we need air. Give us the spirit of prayer. Make us prayerful as you are prayerful; grant this through Jesus Christ our Lord – Amen!
Prophetic Message: God’s Word must surely Come to Pass
(Song: God is not a man – His word must surely come to pass… He will never, never fail)
Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “Heaven and earth will pass away but his word will not pass away.” In the Book of Isaiah 55:10-11 the Lord God also declares, “As the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
and do not return there but water the earth…, so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I intend, and prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Child of God, all the promises of God in your life must surely come to pass. Your good dreams must come to pass. The plan of God for your life and for your family must surely come to pass. It shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Sign of Jonah
As people were busy looking for signs and wonders, Our Lord Jesus Christ presents himself as the sign of Jonah. In the gospel of Luke 11:29-32 he said, “This generation is an evil generation; it seeks a sign, but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of Jonah. For as Jonah became a sign to the men of Nineveh, so will the Son of man be to this generation.” The resurrection of Jesus after three days in the grave was the highest Messianic sign.

Prophetic Message: No more Condemnation for you
The people of Nineveh were at the point of death when God visited them through the Prophet Jonah. The people of Nineveh would have perished in forty days but when they and their king repented the Lord repented. “When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil way, God repented of the evil which he had said he would do to them; and he did not do it.” The repentance of the people of Nineveh actually turned things around for them. Child of God, do you know that if you repent today, you will no longer die. As you repent nobody will ever condemn you again. It shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Son of the Living God
The most important question in the world is, Who is Jesus for you? In the gospel of Matthew 16:13-19 our Lord Jesus Christ asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” He then asked his disciples “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Our Lord Jesus Christ is indeed the Son of the Living God. He is our Messiah and our Saviour. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!

The best thing that can happen to anyone is to share in God’s glory. In his first letter, St Peter wrote, “Now as an elder myself and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as one who shares in the glory to be revealed…” St. Peter knew what it means bear witness to the suffering of Christ. He also knew what it means to share in the glory of God. We cannot share in God’s glory with bearing witness to the suffering of Christ. The more we bear witness to his suffering the more his glory is revealed in us. Child of God, as you bear witness to the suffering of Christ, you will share in his glorification and it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!
Prophetic Message: You will win the crown of glory
Children of God are destined for victory. They are born to win. There is a crown of glory waiting for every faithful child of God. In his first letter St. Peter 5:1-4 wrote, “When the chief shepherd appears, you will win the crown of glory that never fades away.”The Chief Shepherd here is our Lord Jesus Christ. He is coming soon. When He comes He will bless us with a crown of glory. This crown of glory will never fade away. Child of God, as long as you are living a life of righteousness, there is a crown of glory for you. At the evening of your life you will be rewarded. And it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!
