5 Conditions For Acceptable Sacrifice




Sacrifice is a universal demand if you must stand out in life. To be a star, you have to live a sacrificial lifestyle. You have to go the extra mile.

5 Conditions For Acceptable Sacrifice


Sacrifice is the act of giving up a thing for something we believe is worth more. A sacrifice is to be done immediately and a vow is to be fulfilled in the future.

God will never ask you for a sacrifice you do not have. A sacrifice will cost you something. You have to touch God’s heart.

Now lets look at the conditions that will ensure that your sacrifices will be accepted:

1. It must be love-motivated:
If your sacrifice is devoid of love, it will not be accepted.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16.

2. It must be given honorably and heartily: – Malachi 1:1-13


3. It must be done willingly:
Don't give because someone told you to give. Give because your heart motivated you and give willingly – "Take ye from among you an offering unto the Lord: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the Lord; gold, and silver, and brass," Exodus 35:5

4. It must cost you something: Any sacrifice that do not cost you your comfort is not a sacrifice –

"Then the king said to Araunah, "No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God with that which costs me nothing." So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver." 2 Samuel 24:24.

5. It must be done in faith
Always give in faith. James 1:6-7, Romans 14:23.

#HOTRService: 50 Quotes Of Pastor Paul Adefarasin On The Message: "Under A New Contract"




The senior pastor of House On The Rock Church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin was on Sunday 15th October, 2017 preached on the message titled "Under A New Contract".

#HOTRService: 50 Quotes Of Pastor Paul Adefarasin On The Message: "Under A New Contract"



Below are some of the numerous inspirational quotes I gathered from the message:

1. In the old covenant the blessing was initiated by you; in the new covenant, the blessing is initiated by God.

2. The first covenant was that of human innocence between God and Adam before Adam sinned.

3. The second covenant came when Adam had sinned, it's the covenant of human conscience.

4. The third covenant is between God and Noah -The covenant of government.

5. The 4th covenant is the covenant of promise with Abraham.

6. The 5th covenant is the covenant of law. In the covenant of law, God was pacified not satisfied.

7. The covenant of law was weak, though it was perfect, righteous & good, it was difficult for any human being to keep all of it.

8. The old covenant showed you your weakness but has no power to take your weakness away.

9. If you don't rightly divide the Word of truth, you will take what belongs to an old era and try to apply it to something new.

10. The law had a blessing as well as a curse. Paul combated the law of Moses in Galatians 3:13-14.

11. Jesus didn't become cursed for Himself but for you.

12. Jesus took your place as accursed so that you can take His place as a blessing.

13. He became cursed for you so that the blessings of Abraham might come upon you and you can receive the promise through faith.

14. You don't have to do anything to be blessed; you're just blessed because God said you're blessed!

15. The blessing of God is in the new covenant.


16.You are no longer under the old contract. You’re under the new contract!

17.  The arbitrator of the new contract is on your side and His name is Jesus!

18. The new contract doesn't require your performance, it is Christ who performs through you.

19. The blessing of God comes on you and remains on you because of what Jesus did.

20. The law of Moses revealed to man, his weakness, but had no power to change the man.

21. The law is anything that requires your performance before you get the blessings.

22. You don't sin in order to become a sinner, you became a sinner by the disobedience of one man, Adam.

23. The new system does not promote sin; it promotes the natural practice and flow of righteousness.

24. Christ is God and He's also man; the one man who was obedient to make us righteous.

25. You can’t take credit for anything good in your life. Christ did it!

26. Hearing the truth taught correctly, will give you the faith required to operate in the new covenant.

27. Under law we are the beneficiaries of our obedience, under grace we are the beneficiaries of Christ's obedience.

28. Christ is the only sacrifice, and the last sacrifice for sin.

29. You bring a certain type of judgement on yourself by going back to the old contract.

30. The doctrine of righteousness delivers you from the practice of sin.

31. Be yourself, yourself is not who you see in the mirror but the one fashioned after Christ.

32. Are you paying attention to the doctrine of righteousness or the doctrine of sin unto death?

33. Whatever you're listening to, you're a slave to.


34. Don't allow your mind to entertain what the symptom or the doctor's report suggests.

35. God is not going to heal you, He has already done it; what you're struggling with is manifestation.

36. In the name of Jesus, you will manifest the glory of God.

37. If you listen to the Word, righteousness will never be divorced from you, it is a stronghold.

38.  When you don’t hear correctly, you’re not going to receive correctly.

39. Faith brings rest; law brings stress.

40. When you sin, do you still believe that you're the righteousness of God in Christ?

41. Faith matters when you don’t feel like you are the righteousness of God.

42. Even though you have fallen & Satan says you are no longer the righteousness of God in Christ, remind yourself of who you are.

43. You need to cast down mental imaginations in your head.

44. You need to have faith to get what God has already given you because without faith it is impossible to please God.

45. Human nature taught us to perform before getting blessed just like you get bonuses at work for great performance.

46. The knowledge of God is the doctrine of righteousness.

47. Disobedience is wrongly hearing the Word of God.

48. Disobedience is wrongly hearing the Word. The Bible says to pay attention to the knowledge of truth not of facts.

49. Disobedience is wrongly hearing the Word. The Bible says to pay attention to the knowledge of truth not of facts.

50. The fact is that the symptoms of sickness are there but the truth is that you've been healed by the stripes of Jesus Christ.

I believe you are blessed through this message.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Uzor Favour Told Us What Motivated Her Into Singing [Must Read]



I was opportuned to meet a beautiful and intelligent young gospel artist in Port Harcourt, Uzor Favour, during October edition of Gospel Gang Party in the state. 

Arguably, you will never believe the bunch of talent in her until you hear her sing.
Favour spent a little time speaking with BelieveAll.Com on what motivated her into singing.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW:  Uzo Favour Told Us What Motivated Her Into Singing [Must Read]

 
Below are short excerpts of our interview with her.

BelieveAll Media: Can you tell us your name?

Favour: My name is Uzor Favour… that is my name.

BelieveAll Media: What motivated you into singing for God at this young age?

Favour: I can say that it’s really been God. I never had the mind of coming out as an artist even if I do sing in church till I met Tammy and MindKind Entertainment. I have passion for music and for God but coming out, I had a stage freight and I was afraid of people but when I developed interest in going out for it. Today here I am.

BelieveAll Media: What challenge did you face writing this song?

Favour:  Hmmmm, there was no much challenge, It's actually a cover to Victoria Orenze - On fire... I respect her a lot but the lyrics came while I was in church when some of the lyrics came, so I said, let me write a song on “Set my heart on fire” and while I was in the studio too while recording it some lyrics also came,  I just wrote them down. No much challenge.


BelieveAll Media: You said, ‘you were in the church when some lyrics came’ does it mean the inspiration came from the message the pastor was preaching on at that time?

Favour: Yes, yes, it came from the message and he directed it to a song, that is, create in me a clean heart so it just came. Yes.

BelieveAll Media: What is the title of your song?

Favour: The title of the song is: Set My Heart On Fire.

BelieveAll Media: What do you expect from this song?

Favour:  I expect that anytime I sing it, anywhere I sing it peoples' heart should be touched and they should think, in short, they should pour their heart to God that God should set their heart on fire. That is what I expect.

BelieveAll Media: So when do you plan to release the song?

Favour: By the grace of God, I am believing God by November the song will be out.

BelieveAll Media: Thank you for speaking with us.

Favour: Thank you sir.

We believe  the song will appear here first, when it is released.











Knowing And Understanding The Trinity.


The word "Trinity" as a word is not seen in the scriptures but is gotten/coined from the concept of the The "God head". So that said let's move on to the subject matter.

The Trinity is made up of the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost, and all three is God and is one.
There are heresies, misunderstandings, misinterpretations concerning the Trinity which am going to talk on here.

Here are most common popular controversies concerning the Trinity:

When Your Education Tests Your Faith, You Have Three Choices



In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (2 Timothy 3:12 NIV).
When Your Education Tests Your Faith, You Have Three Choices


Education is vitally important to all of us. It’s one of the few parts of our lives that should never end. We should always be learning. The Bible describes it as a key to a successful life (Proverbs 19:8).
But like anything so important, we have to guard it. We have to ensure that our learning draws us closer to God and doesn’t pull us away from him. That starts with a decision.

You have to decide in advance to stand for God.

The time to think through your loyalty to God isn’t when you’re learning something new. It’s before you even start.

The Bible tells us, “In the world you have tribulation” (John 16:33b NASB).
This verse doesn’t say “you might” have troubles. It doesn’t say “if” you have troubles. It says you will have troubles. And that includes your education. Your faith will be tested by your education. No doubt about it.

In 2 Timothy 3:12 we read, “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (NIV).

If you’re not suffering any persecution in your life, it may indicate you’re not living an entirely godly life. It may mean you’re trying to be a chameleon where some people don’t know you’re a Christian.
Count on being tested in your education. You can fail a big math test. But you can’t fail the most important test you’ll ever take — the test of your faith. It has eternal consequences.

When your education tests your faith, you have three choices.

You can take a dive. You withdraw and just drop your faith.

You can withdraw. You simply compartmentalize your life, and you don’t let God’s Word impact what you’re learning.

You can determine to thrive. You choose to run what you’re learning through the filter of God’s Word.


That’s what Daniel and his friends did in the first chapter of Daniel. Before going through the king’s indoctrination program, Daniel “made up his mind not to defile himself” (Daniel 1:8a NLT).

Daniel and his friends didn’t let phony ideas blow up their faith. Neither should you.

Decide from the start you’ll protect your mind. Decide you’ll run everything through a biblical filter. That’s how you thrive in your education — and your faith. And use this filter no matter how old you are or where you are in life — God wants you to be a lifelong learner, which means you’ll face lifelong challenges to your faith.

Remember that God is for you, not against you, when you’re being tested. He’s guiding you into a deeper faith and a closer relationship with him.
 
Talk It Over
  • Think of a time you saw someone “take a dive” or “withdraw” when education tested their faith. What did you learn from their experience?
  • How have you used the filter of God’s Word to process something you’ve learned? How did you grow from that experience?
  • How can you help another person learn the principles in this devotional and guard their mind properly throughout their education?
