UNVEILING THE BIBLICAL PACKAGE
Sunday, 05 July 2015
Covenant New Month greetings to all Codites in the Name of our Lord and King, Jesus Christ. We trust that the victories of God—that He has worked in our lives these past six months—no force will quench in Jesus’ Name.
Throughout the months of May and June this year, we were favoured enough to have God teach us the mysteries about the Name of Jesus. The testimonies that did abound from that lesson are proof that God always speaks to His people. Question, however, is, do they always long to hear Him? It is believed that we have put to use the lessons we received during these two months. Remember, the fruits do not come until you practise!
Nevertheless, what has God to teach us this July?
All over Scriptures, we have record of names of men and women who did extraordinary things for God and their lands. We read daily of the Apostles, and we refer to them as saints. Our pastors and preachers in our churches are role models no doubt, and we see them as heroes of faith too.
The problem, however is that we see some of these people (both of Bible times and of present times) as infallible, extraordinary men and women. We think they are some special breed kind of persons. That view is myopic. James told us that Elijah was a man of like passion like we all. Yet he did the unusual. In Acts 14, from verse 11, people saw Paul and Barnabas as gods, because of what God did through them. However, in verse 15, Paul and Barnabas responded, “Why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you”.
You see, anyone—just anyone can be like them. All that is needed is a little pressing into a higher level. That level is different from other levels and is called THE SECRET PLACE. In Psalms 91:1, Scriptures declared, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty”. There are places. And yes, there is a SECRET PLACE. Very few people occupy this hidden place.
It is in view of this light that our FOCUS for this month which serves as our VIEWPOINTS THEME FOR THE MONTH becomes:
THE SECRET PLACE
Our key text for our study this month of July is Psalms 91. The central verse is Psalms 91:1. This will be our focus for the month as we set ourselves up for the new realms of spiritual growth. All Codites should be prepared for a turnaround by the word. The selected Tasks and Prayers should be taken seriously. We trust God to be true to His promise of visiting us again this month.
God bless you all.
