The Lord’s Request

22:1-8……Then He said, “tale now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love
and go to the land of Moriah and offer him there as a burnt offering…………”

It is better to give
than to receive. God is now requesting. God is Omnipotent because He has power
over everything; all powers all authority belongs to Him. He is Omnicapable, He
is Omnipresent because He is everywhere; He is in your business, in your house,
in your life and He is in every place even where nothing is existing. He is
Omniscience because he knows your heart, He knows everything.

The Lord’s request;
when we are journeying with God, God tests us in many ways. Before God can make
anyone to be His friend, He will first try that person. God will not just give
you something that you need; but He always tries you. The bible said “and it
came to past the Lord tried Abraham.” God tries and test us; God is testing you
this morning that He needs something from you. Father Abraham possessed the
spirit of obedience; he is the father of faith. Twice I have discovered in the
bible when the Lord will tell somebody to move out and He will not tell him
where he is going.  Father Abraham first
encounter with God in Genesis 12:1-3…..Now the Lord said to Abram “get out of
your country, from your family, and ……….”  
God did not say “this is where you are going but just move out and go to
a place I will show you…” Everyone that obeys the voice of the Lord; God
makes him a great person and a great nation. He blesses such a person and He makes
such a person’s name great; and He makes that person a blessing. May the Lord
make you a blessing today in the name of Jesus……….

God is God of blessing,
He possesses everything. God is now requesting. You have been requesting from
God “God do this for me” and there is no one sitting down here that will say
right from the day you were born till this present time God has not done
anything for you. Even if you do not have testimony; that you slept yesterday,
and you woke up this morning; while some were unable to wake up; some houses
are filled with weeping and mourning right now; some houses woke up in tears
but your own is not like that. God did not allow such a thing to happen to you.
Your enemies expected your down fall, your death, your destruction, but the
Lord said “no you are not going to be destroyed.”  You are not going to be destroyed in the name
of Jesus Christ ………

While others woke up in
the hospital, some are in the danger list. Within the time we started service
10:00 O’clock till this hour, thousands have given up their lives; some are
ghost. Thousands have died all over the world as am talking right now some are
breathing their last breath; but your own is not like that. Whenever I see a
Christian crying I will tell you stop crying; while there is life inside you,
there is hope in your future. Abraham obeyed the voice of God; God said “go out
of your family” Everyone that will move with God must first separate himself
from the world. By separating yourself from the world is by connecting yourself
with God. If you are in the word of God you will clear yourself from the world,
because in the world there is nothing good in it. 1 John 2:15-17…..Do not love
the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of
the father is not in him…… So you have to make a choice whether you love God or
you love the world. If you love the word you will have God; if you love God you
will hate the world. May God make you to abide forever in the name of Jesus

 Abram moved out like the Lord said to him,
Genesis 12: 4……Abram departed and Lot also went with him. He moved his wife and
they were going; not knowing where they were going; because the Lord did not
say “this is where you are going.”  In
Genesis 12:7 the Lord said “Abram this land belongs to you and your descendants
forever.” So he got to the land before God said this is where I want you to be.
If God said to you today move out and not tell you your destination will you
go? No every vehicle moving has a destination; a plane moving has a destination;
a ship moving has a destination. But God said “just go out” it is better to
obey His voice. 1 Samuel 15:22…..The Lord has no delight in burnt offering or
sacrifice, as in obeying the voice of the Lord, obedience is better than
sacrifice…..God wants you to obey His voice; whatever He says is what you have
to do. Abram was moving with God in Genesis 15:1-5….The Lord said Abram “do not
be afraid I am your God; I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward……”  Whatever you are going through today, the
Lord will find the lasting solution to it in the name of Jesus Christ……

Do not let us complain
against God, Abraham moved with God for 25years. Abraham was very close to God
that they called him a friend of God. But God denied him of his own right; God did
not give him a son. The Lord did not give him a son because there is a reason
for it. God at times holds all the blessings, holds all the things we have been
asking; He does not give it to us because He wants to glorify Himself in our
life; with God all things are possible. The Lord gave Abraham a child; they
have lost hope; they thought it will not happen. Genesis 18:9-14…..Then they
said to him “where is your wife?” So he said, “here in the tent.” Verse 13 and
14…. Sarah laughed; is there anything too difficult for God? At the appointed
time I will return to you according to the time of life. Genesis 21:1-2….And
the Lord visited Sarah and she conceived in her old age and bore to Abraham a
son. Sarah was 90 years; Abraham was 100 years and they called his name
laughter Isaac- laughter, the Lord has turned our mourning to dancing; He has
turned our crying to joy; He has turned our sadness to joy; He has turned our
sorrow to rejoicing and that shall be your portion today in the name of Jesus

Do not give up. Psalm
34:5…..They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces were not ashamed.
When you look unto God you will never be ashamed. Psalm 35: 8….. Oh taste and
see that the Lord is good. Psalm 34:10…..The young lions lack and suffer
hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing. God said you
will not lack of any good thing. Psalm 34:19…Many are the afflictions of the
righteous, but the Lord delivers him of them all. Do not give up; God can do
it. Psalm 37: 25…I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the
righteous forsaken nor his children begging for bread…… Your children will not
beg for bread in the name of Jesus….. Because He is God, and He can never lie.
Exodus 23:25…You shall serve the Lord and He will bless your bread and your
water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you…. God says He will
bless your water, He will bless your bread; He will bless it beyond your
imagination; so do not give up; because He is going to do it. Do not give up
because He is the Lord. Psalm 37:34….Wait on the Lord and keep His way, He
shall exalt you to inherit the land; and when the wicked is cut off you shall
see…. Psalm 37:5…..Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him and He shall
bring it to pass. Psalm 37:37….. Mark the blameless man, and observe the
upright; for the future of that man is peace…. Your future is peace, because
God can do it.

Do not give up the
woman was 90 years; the man was 100 years; but they believed God can do it. And
I tell you God can do it. Job 14:7….There is hope for a tree, if it is cut
down, that it will sprout again…. You are better than a tree because you are a
living being; you are express image of God; God created you in His own image;
in His own likeness. If there is still hope for tree there is hope for you. Do
not give up. Job 14:14…..If a man dies, shall he live again…? No. Hebrew 9:27…And
It is appointed for a man to die once, but after this the judgment…. Job
14:14…. For all the days of my hard service l will wait …..Ecclesiastes 3:1… To
everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. You have a
purpose, but that purpose has a time. 
Ecclesiastes 3:11…..He has made everything beautiful in its time…. When
it is our own time it is beautiful; in the time of mother Sarah it was
beautiful; that a 90 year old woman could still carry a baby; is so beautiful,
and wonderful. It is coming to your turn; miracles of God; blessing of God; is
coming to your turn. When people will see you, and they say what manner of man/woman
is this? When people will see you they will say they cannot belief; when people
will argue about you, they will say it is not you; it looks like you. But it is
you because you are filled with the glory of God; it is you that is filled with
the blessing of God.

Isaiah 60:1….Arise
shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you….
So it is you not another person; your time is coming. When people say “it is
over for you” God will show up and make it happen; that is the reason why you
are worshiping God. Let your time come in the name of Jesus Christ……. Psalm
102:13…..You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, the
set time, has come. Say “The time to favor me, the appointed time has come, the
set time has come” The set time has come, Abraham believed in God and you have
to belief in what am saying. I want you to belief in God because He can do it;
He has power to do it; He is the Lord and that is His name.

Is there anything too
difficult for God? Jeremiah 32:17….Ah, Lord God! Behold, you have made the
heavens and the earth by your great power and out stretched arm. There is
nothing too difficult for you…. Luke 1: 35-37..….The Holy Spirit will come upon
you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you, that Holy one who is to
be born  shall be called the Son of God……
I have discovered that with God all things are possible; God has power over
everything; His hand is not shorten that He cannot save us; His ear is not
heavy that He cannot hear us. Jeremiah 32:27……Behold, I am the Lord, the God of
all flesh. Is there anything too hard for me? Why are you crying? Why are you
wailing? Why are you not happy? Why are you been disturbed? God is great, and
He is faithful.

Mark 11:22….He said Have
faith in God. If you can have faith of father Abraham you will possess it; you
will get it; you will obtain it; you will have it; because He has power to do
it; He can do it. Psalm 40:1-3….. I waited patiently for the Lord; and He
inclined to me; and heard my cry. He has brought me up out of the horrible
pit….. God say “this is the hour to sing a new song.” The song that you have
been singing, that I have no money; my business is not moving. Today you will
sing a new song, because He will put your feet upon the rock, and that rock is
Jesus Christ. He will establish your steps so therefore you will sing a new
song. Old things have passed away; behold old things have become new; the time
of weeping is over in your life; the time of crying is over. I silence every
mouth speaking negativity into your life; I silence every mouth pronouncing
evil to your life; because you are going to sing a new song.

Situation will change
for better this year; you will sing a new song. Being barricade by the devil,
barricaded by forces of darkness; the Lord will lose you; the Lord will release
you in the name of Jesus Christ….. It is time to sing a new song; it is time to
cry unto God; it is time to shout; it is time to praise the Lord; the time of
weeping is over; the time of crying is over. I speak it in the name of Jesus
Christ that your time of mourning is over; you will sing a new song. God will
turn your life around; God will catapult you into the next level; God will do
it to put your enemies to shame; He will do it to confuse all your enemies; to
set commotion into the camp of your enemies. While they say it is not possible
God says it is possible; come with spirit of possibility. Let your heart be
open to God that He can do it. You will sing a new song; songs of deliverance;
songs of victory; songs of testimony; songs of peace; songs of joy. Power will
change hands; God will fight for you. Isaiah 62:1…..For Zion’s sake I will not
hold My peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest until the righteousness
goes forth…… you will sing a new song; God will turn your life around; it shall
be well. God is bigger than any mountain, is greater than your enemies.

God said to Abraham “offer
your only son to me.” Abraham waited 100 years for him, the mother waited 90 years.
Genesis 13:2….Abram was rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.  God did not need anyone of that. He had up to
1000 servants; God did not need any of them; but his only son. Anyone that
wants to go with God must be ready to release all. When God was about to save
us; he did not offer angel as a sacrifice; He had only one child and that is
the only begotten son; and offered him for sacrifice for you and I to be saved.
When I look at many people   I cherish it that we must work; but am
disturbed if our work is disturbing the work of God. Some people they are on
fire before they got a job; but after they got a job they are going down
spiritually because their work is wearing them out. Whoever wants to walk with God
must be ready to release all. The woman of costly alabaster oil perfume offered
the best and probably the last that she had. John 12:3….Today think about
giving God the best. When Jesus Christ was to ride to Jerusalem, there was a
colt tied down that no one has ever sat on it. Mark 11:2-3….Jesus said “go into
the village, you will find a colt tied on which no one has sat loose it and
bring it……” God walks in ways we cannot see; at times He wants to take the good
things from you to give you a better thing; the best. There is nothing that is too
big for God; let us develop the heart of giving, so that we will not ask before
we receive. The hands that give does not need to ask before receiving, it is
automatic because the bible says “the generous soul shall be satisfied; and he
who waters shall be watered back” And that is what the Lord will do for you in
Jesus name….
