Attracting God’s Presence

How many of us believe the bible is true?
Every thing that is recorded happens for real?
How many of you also know that we are still experiencing the bible today but in a different dimension?
How many of you also believe that we have been called by God as a messengers?

Jesus asked, ‘’who do men say I am? What do you say I am?

Well, I am here to announce to you that the bible is true, everything recorded is true and it happened and it’s happening in our time but in a different dimension.

In life and our Christian walk with God, our activities are to attract God’s presence whether consciously or unconsciously, knowingly or unknowingly.

As a Pastor, it is my duty to expose the truth in God’s word and help you grow by knowing the ways of God not only HIS acts.

"He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel."- Psalm 103:7

Anytime we provoke God’s presence, two things happen. He either comes with HIS Blessings or Curses, Glory or Anger. Check throughout the bible.

This glorious year, it is my prayer that we (gwci) as a church and a family will attract God’s presence in a very positive and glorious ways. Not only knowing HIS acts but more importantly HIS ways.

There are few practical things we all will be following closely to attract God into our midst. And I will be speaking about them throughout until God changes the plan of message.

 

Ingredients

Raising Altars: -

Genesis 12:1-7 Now the Lord had said to Abram; “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Therefore, Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan. Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the Terebinth tree of Moreh. And the

Canaanites were there in the land. Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “to your descendants I will give this land”. And there he built an altar to the Lord who had appeared to him.

The Bible says, “So he built an altar there to the Lord who appeared to him.” In Vs 8 And he moved from there to the mountain east of Bethel and he pitched his tent with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; there he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord. Wherever Abram went, he erected an altar to the Lord or kept the existing ones functioning.

Entering into Covenants: -

What is a covenant?

A covenant is an agreement between persons or nations, more often between God and man. It can sometimes be referred to as an "If... Then" condition. If you will do X, then I will do Y. It is important to notice that when a covenant relationship is referred to in the biblical sense, it is not man that sets the terms of the covenant, but God himself. Man simply agrees to the terms set by God. The principles and ordinances of the gospel of Jesus Christ are received by covenant, creating a firmer obligation for the recipient of the covenant and adding a greater responsibility to honor the commitment.

Sometimes the same word for covenant is rendered "testament." Thus, it might be noted that the Old Testament could be referred to as "The Old Covenant" and the New Testament, "The New Covenant." Technically, it is still the same covenant, it is simply renewed again following each apostasy that occurred in the church, which resulted in the loss of priesthood authority.

  • Adamic Covenant
  • Noahic Covenant
  • Abrahamic Covenant
  • Mosaic Covenant
  • Davidic Covenant
  • New Covenant
  • Everlasting Covenant

Thanksgiving

Luke 17:11-19

On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee. As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance, they called out, saying, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!" When he saw them he said to them, "Go and show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were made clean.

Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. He prostrated himself at Jesus' feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus asked, "Were not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they? Was none of them found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?" Then he said to him, "Get up and go on your way; your faith has made you well."

Fasting with a Purpose:-

Isaiah 58:1-6 :-  (NIV)

  • "Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the house of Jacob their sins.
  • For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them.
  • 3 'Why have we fasted,' they say, 'and you have not seen it? Why have we humbled ourselves, and you have not noticed?' "Yet on the day of your fasting, you do as you please and exploit all your workers.
  • 4 Your fasting ends in quarrelling and strife, and in striking each other with wicked fists. You cannot fast as you do today and expect your voice to be heard on high.
  •  5 Is this the kind of fast I have chosen, only a day for a man to humble himself? Is it only for bowing one's head like a reed and for lying on sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a fast, a day acceptable to the LORD?
  • 6 "Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?

Tithing and Offering

Malachi 3:10

8 "Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me. "But you ask, 'How do we rob you?' "In tithes and offerings. 9 You are under a curse--the whole nation of you--because you are robbing me.

10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.

Living in Unity / One Accord

Psalm 133:1-3

    • 1 How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!
    • 2 It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron's beard, down upon the collar of his robes.
    • 3 It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.

Avoid Ungodly Company

Psalms 1:1

 1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.

 

Respecting and Obeying Spiritual Authority

Miriam and Aaron Oppose Moses

    • 1 Miriam and Aaron began to talk against Moses because of his Cushite wife, for he had married a Cushite.
    • 2 "Has the LORD spoken only through Moses?" they asked. "Hasn't he also spoken through us?" And the LORD heard this.
    • 3 (Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.)
    • 4 At once the LORD said to Moses, Aaron and Miriam, "Come out to the Tent of Meeting, all three of you." So the three of them came out.
    • 5 Then the LORD came down in a pillar of cloud; he stood at the entrance to the Tent and summoned Aaron and Miriam. When both of them stepped forward,
    • 6 he said, "Listen to my words: "When a prophet of the LORD is among you, I reveal myself to him in visions, I speak to him in dreams.
    • 7 But this is not true of my servant Moses; he is faithful in all my house.
    • 8 With him I speak face to face, clearly and not in riddles; he sees the form of the LORD. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?"
    • 9 The anger of the LORD burned against them, and he left them.
    • 10 When the cloud lifted from above the Tent, there stood Miriam--leprous, like snow. Aaron turned toward her and saw that she had leprosy;
    • 11 and he said to Moses, "Please, my lord, do not hold against us the sin we have so foolishly committed.
    • 12 Do not let her be like a stillborn infant coming from its mother's womb with its flesh half eaten away."
    • 13 So Moses cried out to the LORD, "O God, please heal her!"
    • 14 The LORD replied to Moses, "If her father had spit in her face, would she not have been in disgrace for seven days? Confine her outside the camp for seven days; after that she can be brought back."
    • 15 So Miriam was confined outside the camp for seven days, and the people did not move on till she was brought back.
    • 16 After that, the people left Hazeroth and encamped in the Desert of Paran.

Partaking in the Lord’s Supper

Acts 2:46-47

  • 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,
  • 47 praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
