Keep your battery charged!!

AFTER THE SERVICE ON TUESDAY ELDER MARY HAD AN INTERESTING DREAM

·         SHE SAID THAT A NUMBER OF BRETHREN AMONG WHOM WERE HERSLF AND TWO OTHER LEADERS LINED UP TO CHARGE THEIR PHONES

·         AND THERE WAS ONLY ONE CHARGING POINT FOR EVERYONE

·         SHE HAD HERS CHARGED UP TO 23% AND THEN ALLOWED ONE OF THE LEADERS TO CHARGE HIS PHONE ,SINCE ACCORDING TO HER ,SHE HAD ENOUGH POWER TO LAST HER TILL SHE GOT HOME

·         SHE ALSO  SAID THAT AFTER PRAYING ABOUT THE DREAM , IT  LOOKED  LIKE THE LORD WOULD WANT TO WARN US ABOUT MAKING SURE  THAT WE KEEP OUR BATTERIES CHARGED

·         HOW? WITH CONSTANT PRAYERS AND BIBLE STUDIES AND PERONAL RELATIONSHIP OF LOVE AND OBEDIENCE TO GOD AND HIS WORD

·         JUST AFTER SHARING THE DREAM WITH ME MY EYES FELL ON A  BOOK WRITTEN BY  PROPHET BRIAN CARN TITLED “WHERE IS MY CHARGER?”

·         I WILL BE SHARING SOME OF THE PROPHET’S THOUGHTS WITH YOU IN THIS MESSAGE

·         AS IF THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH I GOT ANOTHER CONFIRMATION FROM OUR ZOOM  PRAYER MEETING THE FOLLOWING NIGHT

·          IT WAS PASTOR ANNA’S TURN  TO LEAD US IN THE PRAYERS FOR THE NATIONS

·         BUT SHE BEGAN TO PRAY FOR THE REVIVAL OF THE BODY OF CHRIST

·         SHE ACTUALLY QUOTED THE SAME SCRIPTURES IN ACTS 2 THAT PROPHET BRIAN QUOTED IN THE OPENING CHAPTERS OF HIS BOOK 

·         PASTOR ANNA STARTED THE PRAYERS BY QOUTING ACTS 2:42

·         And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

·         INTERESTINGLY,  PROPHET BRIAN  ALSO OPENS HIS BOOK QUOTING THIS VERY WORDS

·         ACTS 2:37-42

 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

·          HE REMARKS THAT    NOT ONLY DID PETER CALL THE PEOPLE TO SALVATION AND UNTO RECEIVING  THE PROMISE OF THE HOLY GHOST,

·         HE ALSO  TOLD THE PEOPLE TO “SAVE THEMSELVES FROM THIS UNTOWARD GENERATION.”  

·         THE WORD UNTOWARD MEANS INAPPROPRIATE AND UNSERIOUS GENERATION

·         COULD IT BE THAT PETER HAD ENOUGH FORESIGHT TO KNOW THAT IN THE LAST DAYS, MANY WOULD NOT  SEEK TO “continue stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers”

·         THERE ARE MANY  ALTERNATIVES TO THE TRUE POWER OF GOD OUTSIDE THE CHURCH SERVICES

·         ONCE THE NORMAL CHURCH SERVICE IS OVER ,THE TENDENCY IS JUST NOT TO  continue stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers

·         MANY DON’T CONTINUE  TO STUDY THE BIBLE AND TO REALLY PRAY AT HOME

·         MANY DON’T EVEN MAKE SERIOUS EFFORT TOCONTINUE TO COME TO CHURCH REGULARLY

·         I FIND IT INTERESTING THAT APOSTLE PETER USED THE WORD “UNTOWARD.”

·         WAS HE EVEN SEEING OUR OWN GENERATION  

·         “SAVE YOURSELVES FROM THIS UNTOWARD GENERATION SIMPLY MEANS SAVE YOURSELF FROM THIS  “PERVERSE,” “WILLFUL,” “CROOKED GENERATION

·         THIS  OLD WORD  PROBABLY DERIVED ITS ORGIN FROM THE IDEA OF THE HEART THAT WAS NOT INCLINED TOWARD THE DIVINE WILL AND TEACHINGSOF GOD.

·         IT IS NOT COMITTED TO THE APOSTOLIC DOCTRINE,NOR TO FELLOWSHIP,NOR TO THE BREAKING OF BREAD NOR TO PRAYERS.

·          HENCE, IT S A GENERATION THAT IS “NOT-TOWARD,” OR “UNTOWARD.”GOD

·         WHEN OUR FOCUS IS NO LONGER  ON THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST AND ON PRAYERS AND CONSTANT FELLOWSHIP

·          WHEN OUR FOCUS IS NO LONGER   ON FELLOWSHIPING WITH EACH  OTHER AND ON PRAYERS, PEOPLE BECOME DRAINED.

·         POWER IS IN THE WORD OF GOD, AND YOU CANNOT BE DIVERTED FOR A SECOND

·         POWER IS IN CONSTANTANT FELLOWSHIP AND IN PRAYERS AND SPENDING TIME ALONE WITH GOD.

·          WATCHING HOURS AND HOURS OF TELEVISION IS UNPROFITABLE AND BRINGS ON EVIL COVENANTS THROUGH THE EYES AND EARS.

·         JESUS SAID IN LUKE 16: 8 THAT THE “ CHILDREN OF DARKNESS ARE WISER THAN THE CHILDREN OF LIGHT”

·         THE ACTORS IN HOLLYWOOD AND IN MOVIE MAGIC  HAVE MORE SENSE THAN SOME OF US.

·         THEY KNOW THAT THEY CAN KEEP PEOPLE INTO A DEEP SPIRITUAL SLEEP BY CONSTANTLY STIMULATING THE FLESH.

·         THEY KNOW THEY CAN SET TRAPS FOR WILLING VICTIMS THROUGH SPIRITS OF LUST, PRIDE, LIES, AND BY SEARING THE CONSCIENCES

·         ONCE THEY HOOK YOU TO THOSE THINGS ,THE TELEVISION AND INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA WILL BECOME YOUR GOD

·         AND NOMATTER WHAT WE PREACH OR SAY, THE HEART IS CLOSED THE CONSCIENCE IS GONE

·         1 TIMOTHY DESCRIBES THE PEOPLE OF THESE END TIMES AS PEOPLE  WHO SEAR THE CONSCIENCES WITH HOT IRON

·         1Tm:4:1-2

·         Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

·         IN OTHER WORDS THEY STOP FOCUSING ON GOD’S WORD AND SIMPLY KILL THEIR SENSITIVITY TO THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THEN GO ON TO KILL THEIR CONSNCIENCE AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

·         THERE IS A DEADENING EFFECT THAT TAKES PLACE WHEN WE FOCUS MORE ON  EVERY OTHER  THING  RATHER THAN WE FOCUS  ON THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST

·         THE GOSPEL IS THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST,IT  IS THE GREAT COMMISSION

·         GO YE THEREFORE, AND TEACH ALL NATIONS, BAPTISING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY GHOST – MATHEW 28:19

·         THE POWER OF GOD IS ACTUALLY RELEASED INTO OUR LIVES FOR THAT REASON ONLY

·         POWER COMES FOR  THAT PURPOSE AND ONLY THROUGH THE WORD, WHICH THE REVELATION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST  GIVES .

·         YOU MUST FOCUS ON THE GOSPEL AND REBUILD YOUR FAITH IN IT

·          THE WORD IS BEING PREACHED EVERYWHERE-ON TELEVISION, IN CHURCHES, AND OVER THE INTERNET    STILL, THE AVERAGE CHRISTIAN TODAY IS JUST DRAINED AND HAS  NO TANGIBLE SPIRITUAL POWER.

·         WHY IS THE CHURCH  POWERLESS?

·         COULD IT BE THAT THE PREACHING AND TEACHING THAT ARE COMING FORTH IS NOT OF FAITH?

·         COULD IT BE BECAUSE THE FOCUS OF CHURCH SERVICES AND SPECIAL EVENTS IS TO REACH A FINANCIAL GOAL?

·         ARE WE EVANGELISING ONLY TO FILL UP EMPTY SEATS IN OUR CHURCHES AND TO BUILD UP THE PREACHER’S PERSONAL SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT?

·          IS THE CHURCH OF TODAY OF FAITH?

·         EVEN AS WE CELEBRATE AND PARTAKE OF THE GOOD THINGS IN LIFE, ARE WE DOING IT WITH THANKSGIVING UNTO GOD?

·         ROMANS 14:23 SAYS WHATSOEVER IS NOT OF FAITH  IS SIN.

·         IT   IS VITAL TO UNDERSTAND THIS WORD CALLED SIN

·           BECAUSE WHEN WE ARE IN ANY KIND OF  SIN, EVIL COVENANTS ARE FORMED AND EVIL DOORS ARE OPENED.

·         THEN THE HEAVENS BECOME LIKE BRASS, AND STRONGHOLDS ARE   ESTABLISHED.      

·         THAT IS PRECISELY WHY THERE IS NO POWER.

·         THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE TYPE OF SIN THAT WE CONSTANTLY COMMIT IN THE BODY OF CHRIST   DOESN’T LOOK LIKE SIN. 

·          GOING TO WORK IS A VERY GOOD THING.

·         RELAXATION AFTER  WORK  IS ALSO A VERY GOOD THING  

·         GETTING   MARRIED   IS A VERY GOOD THING.  

·         ENJOYING THE ABUNDANCE OF LIFE, INCLUDING   ALL THE TECHNOLOGY THAT GOES WITH IT, IS A VERY GOOD THING.  

·         BUT COLOSSIANS 3: 17 REMINDS US THAT WHATSOEVER YOU DO IN WORD OR DEED, DO ALL IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, GIVING THANKS TO GOD AND THE FATHER BY HIM.

·         THEREFORE MOST OF OUR SINS COME FROM WHAT  PROPHET BRIAN CARN CALLS THE FEEL GOOD CHRISTIANITY IN HIS BOOK CALLED “WHERE ‘S MY CHARGER?”

·          WE HAVE SEEN  THAT OPERATING   OUTSIDE OF PURE FAITH AND THE GOSPEL DRAINS THE CHRISTIAN.  

·         ANOTHER DRAINING MECHANISM IS THE CHRISTIAN’S NEED FOR ENTERTAINMENT, CONVENIENCE, AND COMFORT.

·         WE ALWAYS WANT TO BE ENTERTAINED,ENCOURAGED,COMFORTED AND FOLLOW GOD AT OUR CONVENIENCE

·         THESE DESIRES ARE LIKE ANIMALS THAT DEMAND CONSTANT FEEDING.

·         ACCORDING TO HIM THIS CYCLE MOST OFTEN STARTS IN CHILDHOOD.  

·         RATHER  THAN  TRAINING THE  EYES OF CHILDREN ON THE  THINGS  OF  GOD,  OFTEN PARENTS ARE CAUSING THEIR CHILDREN TO BECOME ADDICTED TO HYPER-STIMULANTS

·          SUCH AS MUSIC, TELEVISION, VIDEO GAMES AND EVEN MIND ALTERING FOODS SUCH AS SUGAR.

·         WE JUST  WANT TO FEEL GOOD AND BE HAPPY.

·           AND MANY PREACHERS JUST ENCOURAGE US TO KEEP FEELING GOOD ABOUT OURSELVES AND OUR LIVES.

·         RATHER THAN SPEND HOURS AT CHURCH FELLOWSHIP,OR ALONE NWITH GOD IN PRAYERS AND BIBLE STUDY,WE SPEND HOURS ON THE T.V,FACEBOOK AND ALL THE SOCIAL MEDIA

·         WE  ARE WATCHING HOURS OF VIOLENCE , FORNICATION AND ADULTERY AND MANY OTHER TERRIBLE FORMS OF SATANISM AND WICHCRAFT

·         WE SPEND HOURS  LISTENING TO HOURS GOSPEL  MUSIC AND WATCHING GOSPEL MESSAGES WITHOUT REALLY ALLOWING THE WORD TO CHANGE US

·         THE WORLD AND HOLLIWOOD HAVE CREATED  A DESIRE FOR WEALTH THAT HAS  PRODUCED A GENERATION  THAT IS MENTALLY AND EMOTINALLY EMPTY

·         THIS IS WHY MANY SO CALLED BELIEVERS IN CHRIST ARE SIMPLY  NUMB TO GOD AND HIS WILL.

·         THIS IS WHY OUR GENERATION AND THE CHURCH  ARE POWERLESS.  

·         CHRISTIANS BECOME DRAINED OF THEIR POWER BY ATTENDING TO THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD MORE THAN BEING CONCERNED FOR GOD AND HIS KINGDOM

·         WHEN WE SEE LIFE AS A CHALLENGE, OUR HUMAN RESPONSE IS OFTEN TO GIVE MORE TIME AND ENERGY TO SOLVING THOSE PROBLEMS.   

·         THIS IS ALSO  DRAINS US   SPIRITUALLY AND EMOTIONALLY AND  IT IS ANOTHER  CLEVER PLAN OF THE ENEMY.

·         HE USES THE CARES OF LIFE TO DISTRACT US FROM THE THINGS OF GOD.   

·         THIS IS HOW MIND BINDING SPIRITS AND STRONGHOLDS TAKE CONTROL OF  A PERSON’S LIFE,

·          ONCE YOUR FOCUS IS ON YOUR PERSONAL  EXPERIENCES  AND PROBLEMS  RATHER THAN ON THE TRUTH   OF GOD’S WORD.

·         BECAUSE OF  ALL THESE  DIVERSIONS , CHRISTIANS HAVE BECOME DESENSITIZED TO GOD

·         THEY HAVE BECOME SPIRITUALLY DEAF, DUMB,   AND DISCONNECTED   FROM THE GOSPEL RENDERING THEMSELVES POWERLESS BEFORE GOD

·         WE MUST BEGING TO FOCUS ON MAKING  GOD’S  WILL PRIORITY IN OUR LIVES IF WE WANT POWER.

·         PAUL’S RELATIONSHIP  WITH GOD IS SUPERIOR TO THAT  OF THE NEW TESTAMENT CONVERTS TODAY

·         HE WAS A MAN THAT WAS SO  FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST,  THAT HE PROCLAIMED THAT HE SPOKE IN TONGUES MORE THAN ANYBODY ELSE

·         HE ALSO PERFORMED MANY SUPERNATURAL WORKS

·         HE KNEW NOT ONLY THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST, BUT ALSO THE NECESSITY OF CONSTANTLY RECEIVING THE FRESH BAPTISM OF   THE HOLY GHOST

·         HE KNEW THAT THE HOLY GHOST WAS THE PERSON THROUGH WHOM  THE POWER OF GOD  WAS TRANFERRED TO MEN

·         THE HOLY GHOST GIVES US THE POWER TO DISCERN, TEACH, PREACH  AND  WITNESS, FOR CHRIST

·         THE HOLY GHOST GIVES US THE POWER TO PARTAKE IN DIVINE SUCCESS, RECEIVE DIVINE INSTRUCTION, WALK IN DIVINE WISDOM AND COUNSEL AND  SECURE DIVINE HEALTH,

·         THE HOLY GHOST GIVES US THE POWER TO UNDERSTAND MYSTERIES, OVERTAKE AND DESTROY THE POWERS OF DARKNESS

·         THE HOLY GHOST GIVES US THE POWER TO SHIFT SITUATIONS, AND BUILD THE KINGDOM OF GOD

·         THE HOLY GHOST GIVES US THE POWER TO OPERATE IN MIRACLES, HEAR THE DIRECTION OF GOD, SEE INTO THE SPIRIT REALM AND DO OTHER EXPLOITS THAT THE NEW TESTAMENT CHRISTIAN IS CALLED TO DO

·         LIKE PETER IN ACTS 2, PAUL ALSO KNEW THAT IN GOD THERE ARE DIFFERENT DIMENSIONS

·         HE KNEW THAT WHEN YOU GET SAVED YOU DON’T STOP AT SALVATION

·         HE KNEW THAT BUT IT  IS VERY COMPULSORY THAT AFTER SALVATION WE GO TO THE NEXT REALM OF POWER

·         PAUL  AND PETER  KNEW THAT ONCE YOU RECEIVED JESUS YOU WOULD NEED SOMETHING TO SUSTAIN YOU

·         THEY  KNEW THAT WE COULDN’T KEEP OURSELVES  POWERFUL AND BLESSED WITHOUT THE CONSTANT IN FILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

·         AS A MATTER OF FACT, PAUL SAID IN ROMANS 7:18, “IN THE FLESH DWELLS NO GOOD THING”

·         THIS WAS WHY HE CONSTANTLY PRAYED IN THE SPIRIT,HE NEEDED TO KILL THE POWER OF THE FLESH

·         NOW, PETER   GAVE THE INVITATION TO SALVATION AND THE PROMISE OF THE HOLY GHOST TO HIS LISTENERS. 

·         HE WENT ON TO WARN THEM BY SAYING, “SAVE YOURSELVES FROM THIS UNTOWARD GENERATION.”   

·         THE PEOPLE RESPONDED BY GETTING BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF JESUS AND THREE THOUSAND WERE ADDED TO THE CHURCH IN ONE DAY. 

·         THEY CONTINUED IN THE APOSTLE’S DOCTRINE AND FELLOWSHIP.  

·         THE FEAR OF GOD CAME OVER EVERYBODY AND THE APOSTLES PERFORMED  MANY SIGNS AND WONDERS    AND  

·         THE WORD PROSPERED BECAUSE OF THE MANY MANIFESTATIONS OF POWER THAT HAPPENED INCLUDING:

•    MASS CONVERSIONS;

•    SPIRITUAL GROWTH AMONG NEW CONVERTS;

•    ONENESS AMONG BELIEVERS;

•    REVERENCE FOR GOD AND HIS LEADERS; AND

•    SIGNS AND WONDERS

·         THE PURPOSE HERE IS TO LET YOU KNOW THAT IT IS GOD’S WILL FOR THE CHURCH TO HAVE POWER. DO YOU HAVE POWER?

·         HOW WOULD YOU KNOW IF YOU REALLY HAVE POWER? AND WHAT ARE THE POWER INDICATORS IN THE BELIEVER?

·         ACCORDING TO BRIAN HERE ARE SOME INDICATORS TO KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE RECEIVED POWER.

·         HAVE YOU BEEN CONVERTED? CONVERTED MEANS CHANGED.  

·         IF YOU ARE THE SAME AS YOU WERE BEFORE YOU GOT SAVED, CHECK YOUR SALVATION.

·         ARE YOU CONTINUING IN THE APOSTLE’S DOCTRINE?

·          2 JOHN 1:9-11  STATES,

·         WHOSOEVER TRANSGRESSES AND ABIDES NOT IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, HAS NOT GOD. 

·         HE THAT ABIDES IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, HE HAS BOTH THE FATHER AND THE SON.

·         ARE YOU AT PEACE WITH  YOURSELF AND WITH THE BRETHREN?   

·         IF YOU QUARREL AND COMPLAIN AS A WAY OF LIFE, YOU PROBABLY DON’T HAVE THE POWER OF GOD RESIDING IN YOU

·         IS  THE FEAR OF THE LORD  UPON  YOU, OR DO YOU FEEL ALRIGHT ABOUT JUDGING  OTHERS,

·         DO YOU  FEELS GOOD ABOUT DISHONORING LEADERS, DISRESPECTING THE HOUSE OF GOD AND ALL MANNER OF PRIDEFUL ARROGANCE?

·         IF YOU DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM DOING SUCH THINGS, YOU PROBABLY DON’T HAVE THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

·         DO SIGNS AND WONDERS HAPPEN  THROUGH YOU AS A BELIEVER?  IF NOT,  YOU PROBABLY DONT HAVE  THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST

·         REMEMBER THE PROMISE  FROM ACTS 1 :8

·         BUT YE SHALL RECEIVE POWER,   AFTER THAT THE HOLY GHOST IS COME UPON YOU: AND YE SHALL BE WITNESSES   UNTO ME BOTH IN JERUSALEM, AND IN ALL JUDAEA, AND IN SAMARIA, AND UNTO THE UTTERMOST PART OF THE EARTH.

·         ACTS 2:1-4 AND WHEN THE DAY OF PENTECOST WAS FULLY COME, THEY WERE ALL WITH ONE ACCORD IN ONE PLACE. AND SUDDENLY THERE CAME A SOUND FROM HEAVEN AS OF A RUSHING MIGHTY WIND, AND IT FILLED ALL THE HOUSE WHERE THEY WERE SITTING. AND THERE APPEARED UNTO THEM CLOVEN TONGUES LIKE AS OF FIRE AND IT SAT UPON EACH OF THEM. AND THEY WERE ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST, AND BEGAN TO SPEAK WITH OTHER TONGUES, AS THE SPIRIT GAVE THEM UTTERANCE.

·         THE POWER OF GOD IS NOT OPTIONAL.   

·         IT IS THE PROMISE TO ALL BELIEVERS. 

·         THE HOLY GHOST IS THE EQUIPMENT WE NEED TO DEAL WITH THE POWERS OF THE ENEMY.

·         ONCE YOU HAVE RECEIVED THE POWER, TAKE YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACE AND KEEP YOUR BATTERY  CONSTANTLY CHARGED
