Stewardship: A Rewarding Service’s Platform


A rewarding platform of service

Stewardship is a platform of service where blessings and privileges are released to the faithful and obedient servant.

Matthew 25:21 KJV

“His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”

Types of stewardship

In my list, there are three types of stewardship. Some are spiritual where some are financial in nature. However, all types of stewardship are very important.

A). Spiritual stewardship B). Financial Stewardship C). In – Service

 What is spiritual Stewardship?

The spiritual Stewardship worship is a spiritual platform of service such as: Kingdom advancement prayer, prayer and fasting, etc

This is the most important platform of stewardship that yield the greatest rewards

I believe will are no longer ignorant of what kingdom advancement prayer means.

However, if we still have somebody still  wondering what kingdom advancement prayer means, I’ll give him/her a brief definition here.

Kingdom advancement prayer is a platform of stewardship where saved humans intercede on behalf of others (the unsaved humans) in order to be rescued. This is cardinal part of our rescue mission strategy (Mat.6:6/9/33).

In my previous post  about obedience I mentioned about kingdom advancement prayer there, you might want to take a look.

In the book of Mat.6:6, God ordered us to pray secretly and promised to reward us openly, in vs 9, He placed high premium on His kingdom (in the lord’s prayer) & in verse 33, He ordered us to seek His kingdom first before every other thing can flow naturally in the form of additions.

In the book of Lk.2:37, we saw a widow(Hannah) at 84years of age who served God with prayer and fasting in the temple day and night.

Understand this: Prayer is one of the most cheapest way to serve God and service is the condition for all the rewards of God. Hence, get enlisted.

Soul winning is also a spiritual Stewardship. The pursuit after souls is not an ambition, not a gift neither a talent. It is a commandment more than anything else. This mandate has become a mandate for everyone believer to follow. There is nothing like i don’t have the gift of soul winning as many Christians would say today.

Jeremiah 1:5 KJV
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”

Luke 10:2-4 KJV
“Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. [3] Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. [4] Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.”

What is Financial stewardship? 

This is an opportunity to serve God in monetary terms. The platform of thiting and offerings, sacrificial offering, vows, kingdom advancement project funding, and giving to the poor fall into this category

Luke 6:38 KJV
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

Understand this: financial prosperity doesn’t answers to fasting, there is no amount of fasting that you will fast that will make you to become rich. God prosperity plan answers to giving by acknowledging God with the ten part of your earnings.

Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV
“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”

Get this straight: any seed that you sow as a donation is a waste. Your seed is spiritual transaction between humanity and divinity. God needs your seeds in order to meet your needs.

What is In-Service?

In-service like Ushering, choiring, Hospitality, sanctuary keeping and the likes. This has to with your active engagement in one service’s unit or the other in the house of God.

Beware, In-service can lead to hypocrisy. There are people who come to church on Sunday’s just to show off their new bought or borrowed materials.

However, In-service has it own rewards as it’s not good to be a bench warmer in the church. whatever your hand find so doing, do it wholeheartedly.

What are the benefits of stewardship?

Every opportunity to serve God is an opportunity to get blessed. God does not use people, He blesses people. You are not working for God, you’re working with God,  you are partnering with God. You need to Change your mentality if you must experience the miraculous on every side while you’re on the platform of service.

In a partnership business, every active partner is entitled to a dividend. You can’t work with God and not receive the dividend of service. We are shareholders in this kingdom.

Revelation 22:12 KJV
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”

God has never has the seed of Jacob to seek Him in vain (Is.45:19).

Paul planted, Apollos watered but God gave the increase.. Meaning that, some people are interceding on behalf of the unsaved while some are on the field bringing in the harvest to Christ and both are still working towards the same purpose.

1 Corinthians 3:6 KJV
“I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.”

Hear this: Service is your surest insurance against all satanic affliction of sicknesses and diseases.

Exodus 23:25 KJV
“And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.”

Service is your cardinal bail out from a wretched, pitiful, and poverty in every sphere of existence.

Job 36:11 KJV
“If they obey and serve him , they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.”

What more?

Serving God guarantees your longevity. Ex.23:27

Serving God secures your access to fruitfulness Ex.23:25-27. Serving God through the instrumentality of faith is the key to all your expectations’ manifestations.

OBEDIENCE – THE PATHWAY TO SUPERNATURAL REWARDS


OBEDIENCE - The pathway to supernatural rewards

CONTINUES..

2). It  guarantees divine health and vitality

Exodus 23:25 KJV
“And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.”

A time came that I was still in school, they said that I have typhoid and they gave me plenty of drugs to live on. I said to myself I can never have it, Jesus already took it, He took my place in sicknesses, diseases, pains and bruises on the cross.

And, as a matter of truth Jesus had been healing people long enough, even before the doctor started schooling. Therefore, I disposed all the drugs given to me. That’s was the end of it, typhoid gone and never to return, I have been free since then. Today, I’m the healthiest person on the planet.

Matthew 8:17 KJV
“That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.”

Hear this: faith is not a risk, doubt is a big risk.  Your trust in God will go a long way to bail you out from the torments and afflictions of the devil.

3). Financial Prosperity – All through my school days, I had been pursing after God’s interest, being faithful to my thites and offerings and yet I did not lack anything..I spent closed/over to a million for school fees, feeding, rent and transport. There was no strain in me at getting the money. I enjoyed divine favour on every side.

God can give you wealth but you must acknowledge Him with your thites and other giving platforms. Dive into the covenant of seed time and harvest, giving and receiving and poverty will no longer be your neighbour.

Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV
“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”

Job 36:11 KJV
“If they obey and serve him , they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasure.”

4). Open rewards – Seeking after the number one interest of God, which is the lives of the unsaved souls – both on the prayer altar and harvest field –  enhances open rewards (Mat.6:6/9, Jn.15:16)

Matthew 6:33 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Divine healing and health for the whole man


Divine healing and health for the whole man

God original and perfect plan for man was his overall and perpetual health. Though this plan was altered when man sinned and became vulnerable to sickness, disease and death, it was reactivated through the vicarious death of Jesus,which redeemed humanity from sin, sickness and Satan. Now you can enjoy complete soundness of body,mind and soul when you acknowledge and accept the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, by confessing,asking for God forgiveness repenting of those sins, living your life for the Lord and obeying his health laws.

Unfortunate, many people have not this provision for divine health and wholeness, because of their willful rejection of the provision, sickness and disease ravage the world in spite of the ever increasing use of high cost of modern medicine. Even the few that accept Jesus in theirs lives still fall sick because of their lack of proper understanding of this provision. The Bible mention the following as the cause of ill health, even among believers in Christ.

1). Unhealthy habit– Genesis 1-29 and God said behold ,I have given you every herb bearing seed,which is upon the face of the of all the earth, and every tree in which is fruit of a tree yielding seed to you it shall be for meat.” But instead of taking grain, vegetable, fruit and nut we replace it with eating junk, frozen food and unhealthy fat. To enjoy divine healing and health we need to obey God health law. Proverb 4:20-22 let us read it.

2). unholy lifestyle – holiness keep keep you healthy but unholy lifestyle infects you with diseases. STD such as HIV is transmitted among human primarily through indiscriminate sex, in a flagrant disobedience to God holy command in Leviticus 18. If sex were limited to the marriage bed, the chances of catching such a disease would be infinitesimal

3). unhopeful mind – a mind that isn’t hopeful of having its desire met is depressed, un happy and unhealthy. But a hope full mind is happy, vibrant and healthy. Proverb13:12 say..hope deferred maketh the hearts sick: but when desire cometh, it is a tree of life.

I have been redeemed to live a sickness free life

4). unsettled home – if you re having issue with your spouse, children or in law. You’d have stress at home, and stress zap your concentration, make you irritable or depressed, and harms yours personal and professional relationship. Over time, it also weaken your immune system and makes you susceptible to a variety of ailments.

5). unhealthy habit – good hygiene promote sound health. If you want to minimize your risk of infection and enhance your overall health, therefore, you should brush and floss.,bath regularly, wash your hands, especially after toilet do your laundry,wear clean cloth and clean your house and your surrounding. Other wise you will pay regular visit to doctor.

6)unhappy disposition: the Bible say a merry heart does good like a medince: but a broken spirit drieth the bone. un happy disposition or sadness can hamper your health

Sadness can trigger stress,suppress the body immune system, leaving it more vulnerable to autoimmune disease like arthritis and multiple sclerosis

That can lead to a negative self image that in turn may leave the victim vulnerable to eating disorder like anorexia nervosa

And cause anxiety and low self esteem, which if not addressed may make sufferers through substance or suicidal behaviour.

As a child of God if we can follows and obey all this God health law,we will be able to have a divine healing and health.

I know that someone has been blessed tonight

I am going to stop here tonight but I know by his grace we may continue later in the future

The healing covenant


The healing covenant by pastor Johnson Adedoyin

The Healing Covenant , That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the Prophet saying Himself took our infirmities and Bare our sickness math8:17

If we trace from the old history of God’s dealing with man we will find out that healing is God’s will.

Our God is good and He has good plans for His children to live in good health.

We can buttress this point from 3.Jn1:2

3 John 1:2 KJV
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

GOD HEALING COVENANT WITH ISRAEL
There are 156 occurrences of the words heal, healer, healeth, healing and health in the bible

This covenant is a divine plan by which God heals all those who are in covenant relationship with him and keep them healthy.

Although God has an unfailingly healing and health plans for mankind yet there are people who because they have not come to the covenant relationship with God are not enjoying it.

He is called Jehovah’s Ropheka “I am the lord that healeth thee or I am the lord the healer. God made covenant with His chosen people ISRAEL in the old testament. He promised to keep the Israelites from the diseases by which the Egyptians were afflicted was made at the instance of the healing covenant.

Though, they were however required to obey and keep God’s commandments in order to enjoy this divine healing and health covenant.

This covenant is between two parties God and man and the covenant also has two parts, first, the condition, second, the promises or benefits to be claimed

When the conditions are met, the benefits naturally follows for He is a faithful God who is able to perform His promises

I have been redeemed to live a sickness free life

CONDITIONS
(1). Covenantee should diligently hearken to God’s voice.
(2). To do which is right in the sight of God
(3). To give ear to God’s commandments.
(4). To keep all His statutes
To serve the lord, these conditions apply to us today

We should also not neglect the basic value of hygiene when you did all these things.
God said:
Exodus 15:26 KJV
And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Exodus 23:25 KJV
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

Before we enjoy the covenant today
(1). We must have faith in God
Hebrews 6:12 KJV
That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 11:6 KJV
But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

(2). We must pray
Luke 18:1 KJV
And he spake a parable unto them to this end , that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
(3). We need to rightly appropriate the promises of healing covenant became the part of the new covenant “the covenant of grace” when it was instituted, all those who are born again are made partakers of the new testament “healing covenant” through Jesus’ death on the cross.

Isaiah took us back to the institution of the covenant

Isaiah 53:4-5 KJV
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. [5] But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Matthew 8:17 KJV
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

1 Peter 2:24 KJV
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

PROVISION THROUGH THE COVENANT
Today our healing covenant is based upon better provision through the finished work of Christ at calvary – the covenant which God made with the Israelites is now made available to choose by everyone who believe in Christ.

Divine health


I have been redeemed to live a sickness free life

How can someone live a sickness free life?

Apart from keying into the platform of service and plugging yourself into the covenant of divine health, you can also engage with faith.

Faith is simply seeing the invincible and believing the impossible

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Your divine can’t be guaranteed without your faith being alive.

Are you sicked? Jesus can’t heal you without you answering the faith question. Do you believe that I’m able to this?

It’s to everyone according to his/her faith.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

You will have to move out of the box. Give away the impossibility syndrome. SS are turning to AA. It’s happening now! Bone Marrow cancer is disappearing! Recently, a dead boy came back to life from the death region through the instrumentality of faith

But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Watch out for what you are saying – your mouth is your destiny moulder. It what you are saying that you are empowered to become.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Stop saying something like “my sickness is high blood pressure” say something like “I can’t be sicked”

Whatever you can’t despise you can’t dominate. Until you reject that sickness; you will remain a victim forever.

Understand this: faith is not a risk; unbelieved is a risk.

Many have sold houses and other valuable properties because of a particular sickness. A sickness that Jesus can heal for free.

Stop checking the doctor’s report; start checking the scripture for answers – whatever the WORD
says is final irrespective of what the WORLD says.

The bible is a solution book. There is medicinal value in the word.

Think healing/divine health – you are what you think. Any thought that you allows to hold grip on you is regarded accomplished.

What you think and what you say have a long way to determine what you will become.

Proverbs 23:7 KJV
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

Someone is taking his healing by force tonight.

Incase you have been sicked for days. You are walking out from that sickness now. In the name of Jesus.

Immediately, Jesus healed all manner of sicknesses.

I don’t care about the nature of your sickness, immediately you’re healed. In the name of Jesus.

I know you have received your healing tonight.

Divine health


Divine health is my birth right

Divine health is our birth right in Christ. Redemption has guaranteed our total freedom from sicknesses and diseases.

This is why we must be very sensitive that all sicknesses and diseases come from the devil.

For instance, Job was afflicted by the devil with sickness and disease.

Job 2:3-7 KJV
And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause. [4] And Satan answered the Lord , and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life. [5] But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face. [6] And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life. [7] So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord , and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.
Therefore, if you are going through any form of sickness today understand that the devil is the one responsible for it.

Also understand this, Jesus had taken away all sicknesses and diseases on the cross.

Matthew 8:17 KJV
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

Colossians 2:14 KJV
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

In Mat.8:17, the word ‘took’ was written in past tense. That means that He is not coming to take it. He had already took it long before your doctor went to Primary School.

You are an ambassador of heaven representing heaven on earth. There is no sickness from where you came from. Sickness is alien to your kind.

2 Corinthians 5:20 KJV
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

How can someone live a sickness free life?

(1) key into the platform of service – the service zone is a sickness free zone. You can’t serve God and be sicked. Service has guaranteed your total access to divine health.

Exodus 23:25 KJV
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

(2). Plugged yourself into the covenant by obeying His commandments.

As a covenant child you’re not permitted to be sicked.

 

redeemed

Exodus 15:26 KJV
And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

There is this special mark of exemption on every covenant child. Others can be sicked, but you’re exempted. What afflicts others is not permitted to afflicts you.

All you need to do is to become a certified covenant practitioner.

James 1:22-25 KJV
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. [23] For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: [24] For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. [25] But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein , he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

I believe somebody is free from the plague of sickness and disease.

The sickness free zone


I have been redeemed to live a sickness free life.

There is truth and there is fact. What the doctor said concerning your issue is the fact. What the word God says about you is the truth. The truth is superior to fact.

Fact is based on theory and assumption. Facts are prone to failure. I don’t care about what the doctor has called your sickness. God is breaking all protocols for you in the name of Jesus.

He took your infirmities and bare your place in Sickness and diseases. You are not permitted to be sicked. Sickness is a function of darkness. The root of all sicknesses and diseases is the devil. Every ugly situation emanated from the negative pole of the wicked devil.

Take Job for instance, He fears God and hates evil. But, the devil was the one behind the intimidation and buffeting that Job suffered. (JOB.1)

In the list of light, there are: divine health, abundance, breakthrough, success, strength, Joy, life, sweet etc. In the list of darkness, there are: sickness, poverty, weakness, breakdown, frustration, death, sweat, etc.

God is light while the devil is darkness. God is knowledge while the devil is ignorance, frustration and confusion. These are two forces that control life. It’s either you belong to one or the other. There is no middle way.

God is light in in there is no darkness at all.”

Every genuine covenant practitioner is light’s candidate. Serving God guarantees you to live a sickness free life.

“And ye shall serve the LORD your God and He shall bless your bread and your water and the number of thy days I will fulfil.” Ex.23:25

But, due to ignorance, many believers are plagued with diverse of sicknesses and diseases from the wicked.

Stop listening to what the Doctor said about your sickness – Jesus has been healing people before your doctor went to primary school – stop checking the that medical results. Start checking the scripture for healings. There is medicinal value in the word of God.

Faith is not a risk, unbelief is a risk. Depend absolutely on the word of God and your healing will be established.

The day I  receives the light from Ex.23:25, I was healed from Thypiod. Thypoid gone and never to return again. I disposed all the medications, drugs that the doctor gave me. It has been 2yrs now that I have been totally free from Thypoid.

As you are serving God and obeying His commandments, think healing and not sickness, think positive and not negative. Speak healing, divine health and vitality and not the negative.

From the scripture, I understood that we’re  what we think. “As he thinketh in his heart so he is.” Prov.23:7. You are what you say. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Prov.18:21.

Think and Say something like this, “I can never be sicked.” Get this straight: you can never dominate what you can’t despise. Despise sickness and receives health.

“The entrance of thy word giveth light, it giveth  understanding unto the simple.” PS.119:130

When light comes in, darkness goes out. The entrance of God’s word sparks off the light. As the word of God enters you, Today marks an end to all forms of sicknesses and diseases in your life today in the name of Jesus.
