Romans 5:17(KJV)

BECOME STRONG-WILLED December 11, 2022 Romans 5:17 says, “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.” If you have accepted Jesus as your Lord, then you are the righteousness of God. Because of this, you have a right to reign in life. For many Christians, life is reigning over them because they have not had their minds renewed to God’s Word. When adversity comes, they don’t have the will to win, simply because they don’t know that they have a right to win. Christians who know their rights in Christ are strong willed people. They are as Paul described in his writings: “having done all to stand (they) stand therefore.” Some Christians still have a tendency to think that they are unworthy and no good. They desperately need to hear the truth about becoming established in righteousness. Some Christians still think that God wants them to be sick and diseased. They, too, need to have their minds renewed to God’s Word. When symptoms come, they do not have the will to resist them because they think that God is the one who sent them. God is the Healer! People who don’t know the Word are people without restraint when pressure comes. You should know that sickness and disease are not from God. You should know that they are of Satan. You should become so established in the Word that nobody can convince you that God is the one who puts sickness and disease on you. Just as you need to become established in God’s will for your health, you need to be established in how to overcome the trials and temptations that Satan will bring against you. As a Christian, you need to face up to the fact that you are still in the world, even though you are not of the world. Therefore, because Satan is in the world, he has the ability to contact you from time to time. You do not have to be defeated or destroyed by those contacts. By acting on the Word, you can come through every problem unshaken. If the Bible says that you can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens you and that you are more than a conqueror, then I ask you, what can Satan possibly do to defeat you? Absolutely nothing!

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL FRIDAY 14TH OCTOBER 2022 PST. CHRIS RIGHTEOUSNESS—A GIFT FOR ALL MEN Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17). Righteousness is one of the three cardinal gifts of God, and it was offered to the whole world. Thegift of righteousness is for all men. You might argue, “Why then does the Bible say, _As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one?’” (Romans 3:10). That’s the reason Jesus came, suffered, and died for all men. He came into this world to make a righteous creation out of the unrighteous man. He died once, so that every man who hitherto was unrighteous could believe in Him and become righteous. Romans 10:10 says, “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Legally speaking, every sinner in the world, including the atheist, has already been made righteous. However, because they haven’t activated the life of righteousness by being born again, they can’t experience the vital realities of the life of righteousness. They can’t produce the fruits and works of righteousness. It’s the reason we preach the Gospel; the world needs to know that the death and resurrection of Jesus has freed all men from the bondage of sin. Now, righteousness is available in Christ Jesus. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” Now that you’re born again, you’ve been brought into a new life of righteousness: Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:4). Righteousness is the nature of God that gives you right standing with God, and the nature to do right. This is your new nature in Christ; an intimate relationship with God is now possible. Hallelujah! PRAYER Righteous Father, I thank you for giving me your righteousness, and granting me the ability to boldly stand before you without guilt, condemnation, inferiority or blame. I’m righteousness-conscious. I rejoice in the gift of righteousness bequeathed to me through the death of Jesus Christ. Therefore, I reign in righteousness; I reign over circumstances and the elements of this world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. FURTHER STUDY: Romans 5:17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Romans 3:20-22 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law [is] the knowledge of sin. 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God [which is] by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: DAILY SCRIPTURE READING 1-YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN 1 Thessalonians 4:1-18 & Isaiah 59-60 2-YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN Hebrews 6:11-20 & Ezekiel 8-9 .................................. PRAYER OF SALVATION ..................................... We trust you have been blessed by this devotional.

I believe He died for me and God raised Him from the dead. I believe He’s alive today. I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life from this day. Through Him and in His Name, I have eternal life; I’m born again. Thank you Lord, for saving my soul! I’m now a child of God. Hallelujah!” #PEACE #detrueabrahamicseed #sixtymillionUSD

WORD & PRAYER SESSION || DAY 3 JERUSALEM ENCOUNTER 2022 || 22.11.2022 Message Title: Growing in Grace Anchor Scripture: 2Peter 3:17-18 Highlight of the message: • Glory is the end product of grace. Exodus 33 • The apostles faced a lot of challenges (Acts 4:21,29-33), yet despite the challenges they continued to share the word of God. That is what it takes to carry grace. • The world system will not improve nor become favourable to the church, rather more attack is coming upon the church. Our strength is not from the world system but from the grace of God. Mark 13:33 • Many believers will compromise and betray Christ but those with great grace will soar on the wings of eagle. • War is coming to the church, however, God is raising a generation through which the fire of God will spread. Even wealth will be unleashed upon the believers that will refuse to compromise their faith. • Fear hides the power of God, but faith reveals it. • Grace is not stagnant, it grows. Grace is in levels and dimensions. Levels of grace 1. Saving grace – Eph. 2:8. 2. Great Grace – Acts 4:33, Rom. 5:17, 2Cor. 12:9 3. Exceeding Grace - 2Cor. 9:14, 1Tim. 1:14 4. Multiplied Grace – 2Pet. 1:2 5. All round Grace – Rom. 8:28 No one can grow above the grace given to him. How do you grow in grace? • By divine knowledge and revelation of Jesus Christ. 2Pet. 1:2; 3:8 Lift your right hand and pray: • Father, introduce me! • Father as I clap my hands and pray, multiply Your grace in my life! • My Father my God, as I clap my hands and pray, anointing for exploit overshadow my life! Receive these prophetic declarations: • I prophesy greatness, honour, favour, open doors, and divine connection into you! • Let the heavens above you open and let there be the rain of success! • Every soul in your family is preserved, in the name of Jesus Christ! #Word #Prayers #PropheticDeclarations #RevAmbChimaobiAninwene #Day3_JE_2022 #22ndNovember2022
