YOUR SUNDAY WITH PROPHET MKO TIBETAN!
Brethren in Christ the sermon for today is TIME:- According to Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, there is time for everything under heaven; a time to be born ..................! When you look at the life of Zechariah in Luke 1:18-20, he has been in the temple for several years worshiping the Lord with fasting and prayers; but he did not boast that he is a prayer warrior? However when it was the time scheduled by God, his petition was answered as God sent angel Gabriel to deliver him. Brethren let us try and keep to time; the white people do not have any special God for themselves alone but they respect time, they honour time and they keep to time! But the reverse is the case with our black people, whose attitude to time leaves so much to be desired; and the resulting inability to get anything or much accomplished timely, is there for all of us to see. When you look at the life of the Israelites particularly how they walked into slavery in Egypt, Genesis 15:12-16 tells us that it was a time which has already been preset by God for them to be enslaved. And when it came time for their release, at an appointed time, God raised Moses for that purpose so that they could be delivered. See generally Exodus 2; 3; 4 and 12. All these are what the Bible tells us, and if you know you talk recklessly or you are too proud of yourself, it is not too late for you to change your ways as the Lord can still work on you and with you. Read 1 Peter 5:3-7; Genesis 5:16-32 Galatians 3:1-3; 1Samuel 14:14; Psalm 49; Isaiah 38; 39. When you look around you today you will see the way people acquire wealth like they can buy death over and live forever; but they forgot that death is inevitable and that they will drop all they have one day and depart from this earth. If you must be once reminded, all mortals are on transit on this earth and we will surely die one day at their appointed time! Therefore, brethren in Christ before we round up today, adjust yourself in order that you may stop boasting of things of this world or your worldly possessions. Some will say they are prayer warriors, some will say they are serving God; but you cannot serve God by simply calling yourself a Pastor as everybody under heaven is a Pastor. You can only praise God according to his dictates in Psalm 100. He even confirmed it in the book of Psalm127 when he said, except thy Lord build a house ............! Brethren be nice to your neighbour; be good to them and use everyday as if it is your last day on earth, because delay is dangerous. Once again be judicious with your time and do the things that is pleasing before God with it. Until next Sunday when we shall get together again to see what the Lord reveals to us, stay well and may the Almighty God bless your household, Amen!
