Isn't tithing a thing of the the old testament? I worked hard for the money I earned, why should I give a tenth to God/the church? These and other questions are answered in this message preached by Bishop Dag Heward-Mills 2001 which is still relevant today.
The church is like a hospital. People come in sick and would usually leave in a better shape than they came. Rather than being judgmental and cold, Christians must endeavor to welcome every and anyone who is making an attempt to "fix" their life by helping to make their stay in the church a life changing experience.
When following a command it is important to execute the command/instructions according to what you've been told and not to modify it. Similarly we must obey God's call to reach out to the world on His terms and not to substitute it with good works like feeding the poor, handing out clothing etc. While these are all great and kind gestures it does not solve the problem that unsaved person faces-condemnation (John 3:18)
Today's message starts with testimonies of how some church members got saved. The common theme in all their accounts is that someone preached to them. In other words someone played the role of God's mouth's piece. As simplistic as it may sound, that is still the method God is still using today. It's time for every Christian to tell another about Christ and God will do the rest.
Bishop Dag Heward-Mills in his book Victory Secrets says "The spirit of revelation leads to the unfolding, the opening and the uncovering of what is going on behind the scenes. The spirit of revelation shows you what is going on behind the curtains. The spirit of revelation teaches you all about what is under the covers." Rev Mark breaks down what the Spirit of revelation is and how it should operate in a christian's life.
Fasting is one of the disciplines of the Christian's life. Jesus said when you fast, not if you fast(Matthew 6:16). So what does fasting actually achieve and what makes up an effectual fast? Rev Mark Dwomoh answers these questions in today's powerful message.
The Word of God encourages us to give thanks in all thing( circumstances) and there's no better time to do that than at the end of the year as you reflect on 2018. Rather than complain, consider the goodness of God and overflow with thanksgiving.
