Passion for the Kingdom (Part 3)
TEXT: 2 Samuel 23:8-23
Memory Verse: "Eccl. 9:10 Whatsoever your hand finds to do, DO IT WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT; for there is no WORK, nor DEVICE, nor KNOWLEDGE, nor WISDOM, in the GRAVE, WHERE YOU GO."
David had mighty men. Jesus had mighty men and women. Apostle Peter had mighty men and women. Apostle Paul had mighty men and women. Where are the mighty men and women of Bishop James and where are the mighty men and women of Dominion Faith. No great vision is accomplished by ordinary members. Great visions are always achieved by some people who passionately distinguish themselves sacrificially to do that work.
NO PASSION, NO KINGDOM EXPLOITS
- Whatever anyone is doing on earth, if there is no passion for that, it cannot be achieved. Desires are accomplished when passion and zeal are accompanied. God speaking in Daniel 11:32 says, ...."They that do know their God shall be STRONG and do EXPLOITS. Acts 23:10-24.
- Every great person you hear their name in the bible did something that is worth putting their name down for others to read and follow their foot steps, though some still have bad names but your choice will stand for you. 2 Tim 3:5-9. 2 Tim 4:9-18.
- Christ and his disciples went from city to city and village to village because of the passion for the Kingdom, but there were also people committed to this cause to do exploits with them because they also have passion for the kingdom of their Father. Luke 8:1-4,19-21.
OPERATION CONQUER A CITY FOR CHRIST
- God specifically instructed Paul in a vision to go into the city of Macedonia to accomplish a particular task. There he met several people but especially Lydia who finally persuaded them to eat in her house. What city in Cameroon can you conquer for Christ. Luke 4:40-43, Acts 16:9-15.
- Preaching the gospel is never without oppositions, but it does not stop us moving forward. There is always a giant demon like Goliath somewhere trying to stop us from moving forward, but the courage of David will always come from the inside to conquer that city for the Lord. Acts 16:16-40.
- A lot of people go back when God is in need of them. Full of complaints of their need and problems, but God must be the No. 1 in your life - Psalm 78:9-12.
- Everyone has the season of the night his life. When your age keep on advancing there are certain things you may not be able to do again. The night comes when no man can work. You must work now. John. 9:4.
OPERATION CONQUER A NATION FOR CHRIST
- Many people watch the atmosphere before they can do anything for the kingdom of God. Whatsoever stops you from doing the will of God will certainly stop you from having your reward or going to heaven. Eccl 11:4-10.
- Our scripture key word in Dominion Faith is Matt:24:14, but we are not fulfilling this because we don't have men and women committed to the cause of the Kingdom. Listen to this Go, Go, Go, Go. Mark 1:35-39, Mark 16:14-20
- The Lord has given express command to the Bishop of Dominion Faith to step into a new NATION to open a new branch which is a part of Mission For Africa 2017-2020. It is urgent, it is now, 2017 is already at hand. Missions is our vision. Matt. 28:16-20, Mark 1:14-20.
MISSIONS AT ALL COST
- Make these scriptures your daily companion. Matt. 4:12-22 - Are you ready to follow him. Matt. 4:19, says Follow me and I will make you fishers of men, are you still fishing fish WITHOUT passion for the kingdom.
- Look at this striking words - Mark 1:14-20, but he still said, in Mark 4:17 "Come you after me, and I will make you to BECOME fishers of men. Read "Mark 1:38 And He said to them, Let us go into the next TOWNS, that I may preach there ALSO: for therefore came I forth." Why did you come into this world, to make riches and go back to God and face the judgement of disobedience? No not you, arise and obey the word of God.
- Read "Luke 4:43 And he said to them, I MUST PREACH THE KINGDOM OF GOD, to other CITIES also: FOR THEREFORE AM I SENT. What are you sent to do in this wicked world of sin, very soon we will leave all things and go.
CONCLUSION - MISSIONS IS OUR VISION
What is your vision in Dominion Faith? But missions is our vision. Discover this vision yourself and help us fulfill it. Arise and let's Go. Matt.24:14
