MEMORY VERSE: “And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city of forsake” Isaiah 62:12


  1. For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.
  2. And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
  3. Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.
  4. Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzi-bah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.
  5. For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.
  6. I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,
  7. And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
  8. The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured:
  9. But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the LORD; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.
  10. Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.
  11. Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
  12. And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Jerusalem was supposed to be the place of which nation would say, “Come, let go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways,so that we may walk in His paths” Isaiah 2:3. But as at the time of prophesy was given by Isaiah, Jerusalem was no longer the city sought after as in the days of Solomon when queen sheba came all the way to prophesy was later given in Isaiah 62:1-12 that, just as Jerusalem, having been despoiled of her beauty by her enemies, and for a long time was forsaken and unworthy to be called a city desired to be visited by men, her glory shall return and shall be attraction to all lands, and the joyful of the whole earths; no longer given up to the invasion of the enemy. That is what the Lord promised, that she shall be sought, that is, a special object of God’s care and a city not forsake, the very opposite of her former name which was forsaken.


  1. PSALMS 37:25 says “I have been young, and now am old; yet have
    I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging for bread.”
  2. HEBREW 13:5b says”for he has said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee “
  3. JOSHUA 1:5 ” There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all days of thy life as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
  4. PSALMS 37:28 ” For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh nor his saint; they preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.”


  1. Genesis: 28:15.
  2. Deuteronomy:31:6.
  3. 1 Chronicles: 28:20.
  4. 1 King:8:57.
  5. Isaiah :7:14.
  6. Matthew: 1:23.
  7. Matthew: 28:20.
  8. Luke:22:31-32.

SUMMARY: You can never be forsaken.

CONCLUSION: God never forsake His people, He ne er leave us to fight alone and He never abandone us Isaiah 62:12 “And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city of not forsaken. “Here, the prophet is saying that when the end of this world age draws to a close , those who are strong in God’s truth will be sought out. Just as Paul was and even as Jesus was.

MEMORY VERSE: “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;” Luke 18:1


  1. It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;
  2. And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.
  3. Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
  4. Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.
  5. Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.
  6. Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.
  7. All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellors, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions.
  8. Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
  9. Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.
  10. Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
  11. Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.
    1Thessalonians 5:16-18
  12. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
  13. Rejoice evermore.
  14. Pray without ceasing.
  15. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Prayer is a staff a Christian needs to move with God. It a lifeline of Christianity. Any Christian without the staff of prayer is in a great danger. It is dangerous to be far from God or to be disconnected from Him because the devil will so much deal with such a person (Ephesians 4:7). When we are hot and on fire for God the devil watches us from a far distance, he dares not disturb,but he never relents. This is why it crucial that we maintain our prayer life. A life of consistent daily prayer is a weapon to keep us off the radar of the devil. Jesus admonish His disciples to watch and pray so that they won’t fall into temptation. Luke 2:20.


  1. Laziness. (Proverbs 6:9)
  2. Sin. (Isaiah 59:1-2)
  3. Bad friends. (1Corinthians 15:33)
  4. Ignorance of God’s promises. (Romans 8:38-39)
  5. Lack of understanding of the word of God. (Proverbs 4:9)
  6. Lack of knowledge controlling the world. (Ephesians 6:12)
  7. People become prayerless when they are unaware that prayerlessness is a sin before God. (1 Samuel 12:23)


  1. Prayerlessness is a sin. (1 Samuel 12:23)
  2. Prayerlessness is disobeying God. (John 15:14)
  3. Prayerlessness is conspiring to reduce the kingdom of God on Earth. (Matthew 9:37-38)
  4. Prayerlessness limit the manifestation of the Sons of God on earth. (Matthew 17:21)
  5. Prayerlessness is an outright rebellion against God. (Joshua 28:16)
  6. Prayerlessness withdraw the presence of God. ( Jeremiah 15:6).

SUMMARY: prayer is the key to God and weapon for the believer.

CONCLUSION: Note that the death in your prayer life is a call for celebration in the kingdom of darkness because you are now vulnerable, that the Bible tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 to pray without ceasing. Be vigilant (1 Peter 5:8)

MEMORY VERSE: “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6

[15]Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: God has no abandoned projects, no matter the challenges on the way, His projects will alway experience great finishing, completion and branding. He has not abandoned any of His divine plans, dreams, revelations and visions for your life as long as you continue to walk in His ways (Zechariah 3:7). You are His project, prepared and waiting to be ceremoniously unveiled for
the world to see.


  1. He is with us at all times. Matthew 28:20, John 14:20
  2. He has promised never to leave us alone. Joshua 1:5, Hebrew 13:5, John 14:18, 25-27
  3. He is faithful to His promises. Numbers 23:19, 1 Kings 8:56, Joshua 21:45, Hebrew 10:23
  4. He desires our fellowship. 1 Corinthians 1:9, Revelation 3:20.
  5. He loves us and He will not forget us. Romans 5:8, John 3:16, Isaiah 49:15-16
  6. He is not finished with you yet. Isaiah 55:8, Romans 8:28, Jeremiah 29:11.

SUMMARY: Without any doubt, be a project in the hand of God.

Have you abandoned your faith in God? God has not abandoned you. Have you abandoned your dreams? God has not abandoned His thoughts for your life (Jeremiah 29:11). You may have also abandoned your plans and purposes in life because of the prevailing circumstances, but
God nas not abandoned any of His plans for your life. Whatever you are going through right now, God does not and will not leave any
Project without finishing what He started.

MEMORY VERSE: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7


  1. Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
  2. Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
  3. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: It is one thing to start a race and it is another thing to finish it. While it is a great thing to finish the race, it is glorious to finish with joy. It is also exciting and relatively easy to get married, staying in the marriage through the struggles, adjustments and trials is not always an easy (Matthew 10:22). God wants us to be faithful unto the very


  1. King Solomon started his reign in wholehearted devotion to God, but the latter part of his life was marked by compromise and disobedience.1Kings 11:6-11.
  2. King Joash, ungrateful leader started well but ended poorly. 2King 12:17-21
  3. Eli, towards the end of his life compromised and wouldn’t correct his children. 1Samuel 2:12-36
  4. Gideon won a great battle for God, towards the end of his life, he compromised for money and power and he was rejected. Judges 8:22-28
  5. King Saul started well as God chosen King for His people until disobedience robbed him of his crown. 1Samuel 15:1-11

To finish the race well means to walk with God personally to the end of our lives, to make contributions to God’s work with our time, talents and treasures, and to leave a heritage and children who will continue the work of God.


  1. Job: He went through every type of personal suffering possible and even in all this suffering, Job said nothing against God. Job 2:9-10.
  2. Joshua: He made everyone to serve the Lord all his days. Joshua 24:29-31. He testified in Joshua 24:15 that “but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
  3. Daniel: He purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the royal food and wine in Daniel 1:8. He was thrown into the lion’s den because he continued to pray to his God against the express command of the King in Daniel 6 and God sent His angel to shut the mouths of the lions.
  4. Paul: With all his trials and sufferings, at the end of his life, he said “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept my faith: Henceforth there is laid for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing” 2Timothy 4:7-8.

SUMMARY: You will finish well.

CONCLUSION: For the wise men, the race started when they saw the star but for the rest of us, it starts we surrendered our lives to Jesus. This race is a race that will be run for a life time with his finishing line in Heaven. It is great to start the race but the reward comes from finishing strong. The race you have started on earth the day you received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, may you finish it in Heaven in Jesus Name.

MEMORY VERSE: “But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil “. Hebrews 5:14


  1. And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things.
  2. And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:
  3. And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:
  4. But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.
  5. And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the woman will not be willing to follow me unto this land: must I needs bring thy son again unto the land from whence thou camest?
  6. And Abraham said unto him, Beware thou that thou bring not my son thither again.
  7. The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father’s house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.
  8. And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou shalt be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither again.
  9. And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and sware to him concerning that matter.
  10. And the servant took ten camels of the camels of his master, and departed; for all the goods of his master were in his hand: and he arose, and went to Mesopotamia, unto the city of Nahor.
  11. And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a well of water at the time of the evening, even the time that women go out to draw water.
  12. And he said, O LORD God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, send me good speed this day, and shew kindness unto my master Abraham.
  13. Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water:
  14. And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: let the same be she that thou hast appointed for thy servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know that thou hast shewed kindness unto my master.
  15. And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham’s brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder.
  16. And the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up.
  17. And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher.
  18. And she said, Drink, my lord: and she hasted, and let down her pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink.
  19. And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw water for thy camels also, until they have done drinking.
  20. And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran again unto the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Created in the image of God, humans are spirit beings. We have a body with which to relate with the terrestrial world, but our lives are controlled by constant interplay between the spiritual and the physical. John 4:24 says God is Spirit, hence His relations with us would be with our spirits. Oftentimes, we miss important information because our spirit is out of tune or we are simply insensitive to the prompting of the Spirit that comes to us as spiritual signals. May God open our understanding and spiritual senses in Jesus name.

On the way to Italy, as recorded in Acts 21, Apostle Paul picked a signal from the heavenlies of the hazardous trip they were about to embark on. He warned the people but they did not listen. Acts 27:10-11
I. The Wise Men from the East {Mt 2:2,9-10} saw a special Star, decoded the signal and they were able to read God’s mind concerning the birthplace of the Lord Jesus Christ.
II. Abraham’s oldest servant and Rebecca in Gen 24:12-22. The servant coded spiritually and Rebecca, through the leading of the Spirit of God, decoded perfectly and at the end the servant was able to discern Rebecca as the divine wife for Isaac.
III. Jacob, on the way to Haran, saw a revelation in Bethel and was able to decode that. “……Surely The Lord, is in this place…” Gen 28:16
IV. Elizabeth in Luke 1:40-45, experienced a leap for joy of her baby at the salutation of Mary, the mother of Jesus.
V. In Job 4:12-15, the sage perceived the presence of a spirit being
VI. It was the perception of the Shunnamite woman of Elisha as a holy man of God that guaranteed her safety from famine and saved her from barrenness. 2Kgs 4: 8-10.

There is an electronic device known as “Digital Satellite Receiver” It means there must be a tool to decode satellite signal. Even if your house shares boundary with a broadcasting station, without such decoder/receiver, you cannot benefit from their broadcast. This equally applies to radio signals, if your radio set is faulty, you will not be able to listen to radio broadcast. Has sin made you lose contact with the heavenly signals? What type of spiritual decoder are you? Analogue or Digital receiver. Can you code as Abraham’s servant into the spiritual and God will back you up?
The Digital satellite Receiver is much higher and sharper in performance than the analogue. We need to sharpen our discernment and strive to be better receivers and decoders of spiritual signals.

SUMMARY: Gods ways are through signs and wonders

CONCLUSION: There are many signals in the atmosphere, spiritual and non-spiritual. We must wait on the Lord in Holiness, Purity, Prayer and Fasting to be able to decode His signals which abound in the spiritual realm. May God guide us in Jesus’ name

MEMORY VERSE: “And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” Matthew 21:13.


  1. And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
  2. And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
  3. And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.
  4. And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased,
  5. And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
  6. And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there.

Prayer is the intimate communication with our father in heaven, it is the channel God has chosen for all his blessings to come into the life of His children. Satan dread nothing but prayer. His one concern is to keep the saints from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless person, but trembles when we pray. A house of prayer is a dwelling place of God. A place where a community of believers abide in perfect communion and intimacy with the One they call their Lord. Jesus declared that God’s house is not a market place, it is for calling on the Lord, that is, the atmosphere of God’s house is to be for prayer. It was Isaiah 56:6-7 that Jesus referenced when He cleansed the temple, Matthew 21:1-13, Mark 11:15-17 and Luke 19:45-46.


  1. A building designed by God himself. 1 Chronicles 28.
  2. A place designed by God sacrifices, offerings and prayer. Isaiah 56:7.
  3. A dwelling declared by God to be where Gd would meet with His people. 2 Chronicles 7:15-16.


  1. Little joy.
  2. No outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
  3. No experience of brokenness, repentance and humility in the life of the church.
  4. No power to convert souls.
  5. No burden to win souls.
  6. No revival
  7. Little evidence of brokenhearted, willing service.

SUMMARY: God’s house should be a place of prayer not a market place.

The Spirit of God is speaking the same words to us today. He is calling us to examine what we do in the house of God, whether good or bad, we should return to Him and join the army who are preparing the way for His return.

MEMORY VERSE: “For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings.” Proverbs 5:21

BIBLE TEXT: PROVERBS 5:21-23, PSALM 33:13-15
PROVERBS 5:21-23

  1. For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
  2. His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.
  3. He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.

PSALM 33:13-15

  1. The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
  2. From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
  3. He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: When God says he’s watching us, it is a reason to be both careful and joyful. we should not foolishly think that, because our parent or pastors don’t know about the sinful things we are doing, we are going to get away with them. God knows.

i. He is watching us whether we do good or evil. Proverbs 15:3
ii. He is watching us to see every step we take. Job 31:4, Job 34:21
iii. He is watching us to give strength to those whose hearts are loyal to Him. 2 Chronicles 16:9
iv. He watches us everywhere and knows what we are doing Psalm 11:4
v. He knows our hearts. Psalm 17:33
vi. He searches our minds and tests our hearts and treat each of them according to the way we live and what we do. Jeremiah
vii. He rewards us according to our actions. Jeremiah 32:19, Psalm 62:12
viii. Nothing is hidden from Him. Psalm 139:1-12, Hebrew 4:13

SUMMARY: God is watching us, so we should live a life of holiness.

CONCLUSION: God knows everything about us, He knows our failures and our successes. He knows our good deed and our sins, but He chooses to be merciful to us, therefore, we must not abuse His Grace.
Romans 6:1-2 says “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God Forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”

MEMORY VERSE: “And the light shineth in the darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:5


  1. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
  2. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
  3. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Light is an important element created by God and it’s one of the essential in life. It was created at every beginning of the world. The Bible says in Genesis 1:2-3, that though darkness came forth first but this was not what God wanted in existence. God did not allow this to exist, He then spoke what was in his mind and that was light, then light came into existence, till this presence moment this light never goes off. Also, Jesus calls the believers in him “the light of the world” according to our today’s Bible text. The question is, are we really shinning the light in the dark world?

As we discussed above, God called forth the light we are enjoying today out of darkness. More so, 1Peter 2:9 tells us that God has called all Christians out of darkness into His marvelous light. The way God spoke and the light came to be. He has called us light, so we are to shine this light in the world.

Isaiah 60:1says ” Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee”. We are to arise to arise and shine forth the light that is already been deposited in us without any further delay. Because the more we hide or refuse to shine this light the more darkness progresses or expands.


  1. In our place of work.
  2. In our business places.
  3. In our neighbourhood.
  4. In the entire world. Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15-18

SUMMARY: We are the light of the world.

CONCLUSION: “LET THERE BE LIGHT” is a command not an advice. Also, this is a heart I deposited in you the day you accepted me as your Lord and Saviour. please don’t hide your light any longer.

MEMORY VERSE: “Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.” Romans 15:14.

BIBLE TEXT: GENESIS 15:1-5, 16:1-6.

  1. After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.
  2. And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?
  3. And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.
  4. And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.
  5. And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.

GENESIS 16:1-6.

  1. Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.
  2. And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.
  3. And Sarai Abram’s wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.
  4. And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.
  5. And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the LORD judge between me and thee.
  6. But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thy hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Patience is a great virtue. The expectations of God on the believers concerning this is high. Therefore anyone who claims to believe in God and hope to receive anything from Him must distance himself/herself from impatience. Abraham our father of faith, according to Romans 4:3 made this mistake in his walk with God. Our second Bible text maintains that he went jn with his wife’s housemaid and she gave birth to a son – Ishmael instead of waiting for the promised son – Isaac. So Ishmael came out of Abraham’s impatience.

i. When someone is desperate. Hebrews 12:1.
ii. Peer pressure.
iii. Competitive life.
iv. Greediness. Jude 1:11.

i. God promises become real. Genesis 21:1-3.
ii. You will overlook those who were impatient.
iii. You will become a point of positive reference.
iv. Honour becomes your portion. 1Sam.2:30.

SUMMARY: It is better to be patient than been impatient.

CONCLUSION: Today’s memory verse is a food for thought in that we can avoid the impatience of our father of faith – Abraham and others in the Bible. But for the mercies of God, Abraham would have missed the plan of God for his life and his generation. However, that Abraham singular impatience is the cause of today’s insurgency and restiveness.

MEMORY VERSE: “Remember lot’s wife”.Luke 17:32


  1. And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
  2. And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:
  3. Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:
  4. Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.
  5. And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.
  6. Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
  7. The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
  8. Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
  9. And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
  10. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: The story of Lot is quite incredible one. The Bible says he left with Abraham when God called him(Abraham) out of his country. Lot later separated from his uncle (Abraham) and went to live in Sodom and Gomorrah with his wife and his two daughters. Sodom and Gomorrah sinned against God and God decided to wipe of the entire city from the surface of the earth. As God did not spare this country, He will not do otherwise to the generation according to Jesus Christ in Matthew 10:15 “Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.”


  1. Noah’s generation was destroyed. Genesis 6:7-13.
    In this generation, they began to disobey all the laid down instructions of God. Jesus mentioned this during His ministry on earth Matthew 24:37-39.
  2. Sodom and Gomorrah was also destroyed. 2 Peter 2:6. As we have seen in the introduction above, no country will escape the full wrath of God.


  1. There is always a way out of sin from God. 2 Chronicles 7:14. God expects everyone to repent from their evil ways. And embrace the remedy put in place by him(God). And Jesus is this remedy to this perverse generation. John 3:17-18.

SUMMARY: As believers we should be obedient to God’s instructions, So that we don’t end up our life like lot’s wife.

CONCLUSION: Sodom and Gomorrah did not escape God’s punishment for sin. It will not be otherwise for this generation.

MEMORY VERSE: “Remember lot’s wife”. Luke 17:32


  1. And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
  2. And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:
  3. Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:
  4. Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.
  5. And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.
  6. Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
  7. The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
  8. Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
  9. And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
  10. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Last week we started the series “LOT’S WIFE”, today we are going to examine what happened to lot’s wife. From today’s Bible text, God sent His Angels to sodom and Gomorrah, the men of the city demanded that Lot should hand over the Angels to them so that they could have carnal knowledge of them (homosexuality). Little did they know that the Angels were there to destroy the city. The Angels told Lot to escape with his family and that none of them should look back. However, Lot’s wife looked back from behind him and she became a pillar of salt. Gen.19:26.

Right from the time immemorial, disobedience to any instruction that comes from God always has its consequence. For example, after God created man (Adam), He gave him instruction not to eat the fruit at the middle of the garden when he and his wife disobeyed, they were made to face the consequence. Genesis 3:1-7.


  1. King Saul refuse to follow God’s instruction completely. God rejected him from continuing as a king. 1Sam. 15: 16-23.
  2. Pharaoh refused to let the Israelites receive their freedom, God buried in the Red Sea. Exodus 14:27-28.
  3. Lot’s wife was told not to look back she refused and became a pillar of salt. Genesis 19:23-26.
  4. Ananias and his wife Sapphire lied, and they were killed by the Holy Spirit. Act.5:3-10

SUMMARY: It is better to be obedient to God’s instructions than to face the consequence.

CONCLUSION: Whatsoever you are doing either as a Christian or an unbeliever, please remember what happened to Lot’s wife.

MEMORY VERSE: “And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Phillip saith unto him, Come and see”. John 1:46


  1. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
  2. And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
  3. Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
  4. Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
  5. Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: After the death of Samson as Nazarene in Judge 16:31, Nazareth became byword. The statement of Nathanael in today’s memory verse is a pointer to this fact. However, when His (Jesus) parents bought Him back from Egypt, they settled in Nazareth, Matthew 2:23. On this note, Jesus Christ became a Nazarene and Nazareth was prominent again. Even if there is nothing to write home about you, your family or town, from now on Phillip’s response to Nathanael “Come and see”; greatness will be your portion.


  1. BETHLEHEM: “And thou bethlehem, inthr land of Judah, art not least among the Princeof Judah: for the of thee shall come a Gover, that shall rule my people Israel”. Matthew 2:6
  2. SAMARIA: John 4:49-40, Acts 8:5-8; “And there was a great joy in that city”. Acts8:8.
  3. ZION: 2 Sam.6-7 “Nevertheless Daivd took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of Daivd” 2 Sam.5:7″.

The above cities and towns that had positive turn around had contact with the destiny Changer Himself – Jesus Christ. while others received changes because the people whose destinies were transformed went back to the place. Joshua 1:3 “Every place that the sole of your foot shall trend upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses”.

SUMMARY: Great things will come out of our Nazareth.

CONCLUSION: No city or town that associates itself with Christ can end up in crisis. Therefore, like Nazareth that received the Lord Jesus Christ. Any city or town that allows Christ into their land through the Gospel being preached to them, GREAT THINGS WILL BE FOUND THERE.


MONDAY: Joshua 24:14-24. The Lord our God we will serve and His voice we will obey.

TUESDAY: Pray for the salvation of those communities that the Gospel has not yet reached.

WEDNESDAY: Make a commitment to God that you will daily intercede for sinners to repent.

THURSDAY: Joshua 24:14 & Jn 4:23-24 Serve and worship the Lord in purity and in truth.

FRIDAY: 1 Samuel 15:16-23. Partial obedience was the cause of King Saul’s dethronement .”Father letme obey y9u totally at all times”.

SATURDAY: Father, please give, the the grace to patiently wait for your promises in my life; No shortcut.

SUNDAY: Lot’s wife becamea pillar of salt. Father don’t turn me into an object of shame but to make a pillar of glory in your kingdom.
