SHARE : Better plans for us



Better plans for us


Mon 02-09-2019
topic: Fasting & Prayer
type: Evening Devotional
As the end of the year approaches, there is a need to set a time aside to be thankful to God for his goodness and mercies through the whole year and also pray for his guidance and compassion for the year we are to enter.

Everyone experienced this year in their own special way. It might have been a great year for you or it wasn’t that great, but in all things we give thanks to God, because we know he has better plans for us each and every day.

And for this reason, this week has been set aside to fast and seek the face of God. As Apostle Paul, we are forgetting the past and looking forward to a wonderful year ahead of us.   

From Monday till Sunday,there will be special devotions available on the website and the App to help you through the fasting and prayer days. 
As you are about to enter into the fasting and prayer week. Our prayer is that the word will open your heart and so that His words will remain there forever more.

Remember, we have all done things for which we are ashamed and we live in the tension of what we have been and what we want to be. Because our hope is in Christ, however we can let go of past guilt and look forward to what God will help us become. Don’t dwell on your past. Instead, grow in the knowledge of God by concentrating on your relationship with him now. Realize that you are forgiven and then move on to a life of faith and obedience.

Look forward to a fuller and more meaningful life because of your hope in Christ. May God bless you and tune in tomorrow for Day 1 of our fasting and prayer week.  

Have a blessed week.

Bible reading. (KJV)

Philippians 3


13. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14. I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Tenets
of the Church of Pentecost

1. The Bible


We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures. That the Bible is infallible in its declaration, final in its authority, comprehensive and all-sufficient in its provisions ( 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21)

2. The one True God


We believe in the existence of the One True God, Elohim, maker of the whole universe; undefinable, but revealed as Triune God- the  Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14; Genesis 1:26, one in nature, essence, and attributes- omnipotent (Deuteronomy 6:4;
Job 42:2; Revelations 19:6; Isaiah 46:9,10); omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-12; 147:5); omniscient (Isaiah 46:9-10; Job 42:2; Acts 5:4, 5).

3. Mens depraved nature


We believe that all men have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23; Genesis 3:1-19; Isaiah 53:6),  and are subject to eternal punishment (Romans 6:23; Matthew 13:41,42), and  need repentance ( Acts 2:38;17:30; Matthew 4:17; Acts 20:21) and regeneration ( John 3:3, 5; Titus 3:5).

4. The Savior


We believe man's need of a
Savior has been met in the person of Jesus Christ
(Matthew 1:21; John 4:42;Ephesians 5:23; Philippians 2:6-11)


because of His Deity
(Acts 2:36; John 1:1;20:28; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13, 14; Isaiah 9:6)

Virgin Birth
(Isaiah 7;14;Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:25-26)

Sinless life
(John 8:46; Hebrews 4:15; 2 Corinthians5;21)

Atoning Death
(Romans 3:25; Hebrews 9:22; 1 John 2;2)

Resurrection
(Acts 2:36; 10:39-40; Matthew 28:5-7; Acts 2:24; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

and Ascension
(Acts 1:9-11; 2:33-36)

His abiding intercession
(Hebrews 7:25; Romans 8:34) 

and His Second coming to judge the living and the dead 
(Revelations 22:12, 20; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; 2 Timothy 4:1; Acts 1:11;10:42)

5. Repentance, Justification, Sanctification


We believe all men have to repent and confess their sins before God (Acts 2:38; 3:19; 17;30; Luke 15:7),
and believe in the vicarious death of Jesus Christ before they can be justified before God (Romans 4:25; 5:1). We believe in the sanctification of the believer through the working of the Holy Spirit ( 1 Corinthians 1:30; 6:11) and God's gift of eternal life to the believer ( Romans 6:23b; John 17:2, 3; 10:27, 28; 1
John 5:11-13).

6. The Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's supper


We believe in the sacrament of Baptism by immersion as a  testimony of a convert who has attained a responsible age of  13 years (Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:9, 10; 16:16; Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38).


Infants and children are not baptized, but are dedicated to the Lord (Luke 2:22-24, 34; Mark 10:13-16). We believe in the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper or Holy Communion which should be partaken by all members who are in full fellowship (Luke 22:19-20; Matthew 26:21-29; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-33).

7. Baptism, Gifts and Fruit of The Holy Spirit


We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues (Joel 2:28, 29; Acts 2:3, 4, 38-39; 10:44-46; 19:1-6).
And in the operation of the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12: 8-11; 28-30; Romans 12:6-8 and Galatians 5:22, 23).

8. Next Life


We believe in the Second Coming of Christ and the Resurrection of the dead, both the saved and the
unsaved. They that are saved to the resurrection of life and the unsaved to the Resurrection of damnation  (Acts 1:11; 10:42; Mark 13:26; John 5:28-29; Daniel 12:2; Romans 2:7-11; 6:23).

9. Tithes and Offerings


We believe in tithing and in the giving of freewill offerings towards the cause of carrying forward the Kingdom of God. We believe that God blesses a cheerful giver (Genesis 14:18-20; Malachi 3:6-10; Hebrews 7:1-4; Matthew 23:23; Acts 20:35; 1 Corinthians 16:1,2).

10. Divine healing


We believe that the healing of sickness and disease is provided for God's people in the atonement (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:7-13;16,17; James 5:14-16; Luke 13:10-16; Acts 10:38; Mark 16:17,18). However, the Church is not opposed to  medication by qualified medical practitioners.
