SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: Exodus 17:6

Family, I greet you in the wonderful Name of Jesus Christ.  We were all filled with great joy to have our Father (Pastor Alph Lukau)  back from Milan, Italy.  Our Man of God preached with power and gave prophesies to a number of people. Two of the prophecies that Papa gave were about the husbands of these sisters who left them because they would find themselves on the floor every morning after being pushed out of the bed by spiritual husband.  The Man of God prayed for the sisters, and they were all set free to the glory of the living God.

Regarding the above scripture, the Man of God said if there is a nation on earth that has tasted the goodness of God, is Israel.  God loved Israel, but along the journey they faced difficulties. 

1.  They needed to eat.  They forgot that God who  has brought them so far, was God enough to feed them.  They began to mumour among themselves and say "why did Moses bring us here to kill us in the wilderness." This happened because of fear and ignorance.  Beloved,  when you look at the battles that God has delivered you from, is He not God enough to deliver you today?  This is how men behave; they forget God.  Regardless of Israel's mistakes, God still came down and blessed them with manna. Manna means "what is this?"  You will drive a "what is this" in this season.  You will live in the "what is this" house. God is about to give you something wonderful,  that will be a wonder for your life.

2.  After eating, the children of Israel were thirsty. They had just seen a miracle but they forgot it. They began to mumour again, "we are thirsty." They complained so much that Moses said, "Lord, these people are close to stoning me."  It is funny how people turn against their leader when they are waiting for their miracle. You think maybe your leader is not praying enough. Family,  the mere reason why you are still alive today is because of the grace of God in your life, leave your leader alone. God can give you a permanent miracle,  but its maintenance is in seasons. E.g. God gave the Shunamite woman a child. Later the child died, but because she had not broken the relationship with the Man of God, she went back to the Man of God who brought back life to her son.

God said to Moses, "in the presence of your elders, take your rod and strike a rock, and the water will gush out of it." This was a prophetic instruction, hence the outcome was not natural. It was a spiritual one. Family,  usually things that God tell us to do, do not make sense to us. Millions of the Israelites drank water from one rock.  God is about to bring a river in your desert. 

God is asking someone to do something irrational, that you don't know how to justify it. Beloved,  just do what God tells you to do. You will never do extra ordinary things if you want to remain in the realm of the ordinary. 

God has asked our Man of God to lead us to strike the rock.  You maybe in the place where  though you are smiling, your finances are dry, your relationship is not working, everything seems to be so hard that you don't know where to start. God says strike the rock. How do you strike the rock and which rock is the Man of God referring to? The rock is Jesus Christ,  the rock of ages.  Four ways to strike the rock. 

1.  Through prayer. Have a relationship with God; be a man or woman of prayer. 

2.  Strike the rock through your faith. If you are a man or woman of faith,  you will not give up on God.

3.  Strike the rock through the spirit of obedience. Throughout the Bible we see people who obeyed God being blessed by God greatly. 

4. You strike the rock through giving.  Giving of the Shunamite woman caused her womb to open. Be a permanent giver. You will never go wrong if you are a giver.

1 - 7 APR 2018
SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: LUKE 1 SAMUEL 9:1-10

Greetings family.  We thank God for the miracles that took place during our Prophetic Rendezvous, surely God is at AMI.  Pastor Alph Lukau said we are in the time when God wants to reach out to his people differently.  At AMI, many have receive their healing, deliverance, restoration, breakthroughs and many miracles.  

Family, I am glad to announce that our Man of God was on the mountain top for 90 days praying for us and he is now back.  AMI is about to shock the world,  get ready!!

Regarding the above scripture,  the Man of God said this is the story of the 1st king of Israel; his name was Saul, the son of Kish.  When you read this scripture,  you see that it pleases God that you look good.  How you look is a worship to God. You are fearfully and wonderfully made by God.

When Israel desired to have a king, God looked in the house of Kish.  He found Saul, who was tall, strong, handsome and muscled, and his shoulders were open.  It so happened that Kish's donkeys went missing and Kish sent Saul who went with his servant to look for his father's donkeys.  Beloved,  every time God wants to bless you he will set you up.  

What will enable you to tap into the blessing God has set you up for is obedience. The Bible says Abraham obeyed God.  David obeyed his father to take food to his brothers in the battlefield.  If he would have refused, he would have missed his blessing. Behind every instruction, there is a breakthrough. You will have a breakthrough if you have a heart to obey God.

Though Kish was a mighty man of power,  he did not send his servants to look for the missing donkeys,  but he sent his son. The hand of God is invisible,  you can't see it with naked eyes.  God always put circumstances and situations to lead you somewhere.  The Bible says the steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord.

Which donkeys have you lost?  Some people come to church because they have lost the donkeys of their health, others are looking for the donkeys of the missing relationship.   Whatever you have lost, you will find in the name of Jesus Christ.

Saul did not know that looking for the missing donkeys was a set up. White he was busy looking for the donkeys,  God was looking for him. It was not about the donkeys,  it was about him.  They exhausted  all the means of searching for the donkeys and got tired. Saul said let us return. Have you ever felt that you are in the wrong marriage,  job, career,  etc? You feel that you tried everything possible and nothing is happening?   Child of God, do not give up yet,  the tables are turning around, something big is about to happen to you.

Saul was tired, and he had accepted the situation. Usually, when you have suffered for so long, you turn to accept the situation and be, at peace with it. E.g., when the doctors have told you that the disease in you is incurable, and you accept to live with the virus. Beloved, what has defeated man has not defeated God.  There will be a transition that will take place in the lives of people of AMI in this season.  You are moving from one level to another.

Sometimes God comes after you have tried everything and nothing has manifested so that when God manifests his glory,  you may not be confused regarding where your blessing came from,  otherwise you may think that your blessing came from your hard work. Sometimes God allows you to bury your Lazarus before he steps in and say, remove the stone, Lazarus,  come forth.  There is a dead situation that is coming back to life.  Your project or dream that you have forgotten, God is about to bring it forth.

25 MAR - 1 APR  2018
SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: LUKE 5:1-10

Shalom AMI family.  Last weekend was absolutely fantastic!!!  Our Father (Pst Alph Lukau) was present at the Mega Cell to release the grace to serve God, on all the disciples.  Disciples were wearing beautiful uniforms, and it was a very colourful and exciting meeting. Glory to Jesus Christ.  Family, the IVP is happening from the 4th to the 6th of May. Let us go extra mile to invite everyone we know.  Let us fill the forms that we have received and hand them to our AMI12 Leaders, who will submit them to Papa in the Pastoral meeting next Tuesday.

Regarding the above scripture, the Man of God said, Peter had realised his mistakes, he threw himself at the feet of Jesus Christ and said "Oh Lord, move away from me for I am a sinner."  He realised that he was dirty and worthless, and did not deserve to receive what he was given.  All that happened that day, was because of Jesus' love towards his people.

The Word of God says, it is the kindness of God that leads a man to repent.  Please note that it does not say the harshness nor the anger of God.  We are under the impression that if God will be hard on somebody because of his mistakes,  this person will be brought to repentance.  That is why you fire your employee when he makes a mistake.  God does not operate like that.  He shows mercy even to the worse among them all.  If it was not for God's grace, mercy,  kindness,  patience,  etc, who among us will still be here today? 

Peter saw the kindness of God and said Lord, I am a sinner.  Jesus said, I will make you a Fisher of men if you follow me.  Jesus did not pay attention to Peter's sins which he had already admitted. If he (Jesus) did, ministry could not have begun.  Jesus used a mere man to fulfil the great commission of the Kingdom of God.  God chose not to use angels to carry out this important assignment,  but he qualified you and I though some of us still have some shortfalls.  He has qualified us to preach the Gospel, just like Peter.  The world will be a better place because of you. The Lord has made you a world changer.  God is good, hey?

Five things we are learning from this scripture:

1.  There was a great need for the Gospel.

2.  Jesus used the man's boat so that he could reach the crowd. All of us have a boat, and God is after your boat.  Your boat is your possessions.   Whatever God has given you,  is what he needs.

3.  Everyone of us has to serve God in 3 levels.  In those three levels, God wants you to make yourself available.  a) Through who you are.  b) What you have, and c) what you can do.  God has blessed you for a purpose.  God blessed you having someone in mind. 

4.  Your job, network, networth,  friendship,  whatever it is, is the boat that God wants.  All of us must understand that God wants you to make available whatever you have to support his Kingdom.  We can store up a lot more than we can handle but the day we leave this earth, we will leave without car keys, houses, clothes, cellphones,etc.  Everyone of us must be a Kingdom ambassador whose resources are directed to support the Kingdom of God.  

5.  Your support is required in the following three levels:

a)  The Man of God

b)  The work of God

c)  The house of God

Please understand that without the Man of God, there will be no work of God and without the house of God, the work of God is not needed.  In Europe,  huge and beautiful buildings are empty because there is no one coming to worship God there. Churches have shut down though they are situated in nice buildings. Once upon a time, these were the houses of God.

As you decide to bless the Man of God, do it according to your faith.  For example,  pray for him that he may be shielded from all the attacks of the enemy. That's where your blessing begins.  Then support the work of God and the house of God. 

Peter had made available his boat.  After the Kingdom of God was taken care of, Peter was blessed because he made his resources available for the Kingdom of God.  Family,  you will not be forgotten if you support the Kingdom of God.  As you make yourself and your resources available for the Kingdom of God, may God bless you more than you can carry. Declaration:  "There will be no bad news in your house.  Whatever was difficult will become easy from today in the name of Jesus Christ."

ANNOUNCEMENTS

1. We are counting down to our Prophetic Easter Rendezvous.  Please invite as many people as you can and be there atleast one to two hours before the service so that you can welcome the visitors. 

2. Disciples’ register is available at Homecells Table every Sunday; the AMI12 Leaders are requested to remind their disciples to meet, sign the register and submit it at homecells table at the beginning of the 3rd service.

3. Please go to your homecells on Wednesdays and ensure that you submit the Homecells Reports on Fridays or Sundays.

18 - 25 MAR 2018
SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: 1 KINGS 3:10-14 – SOLOMONIC GENERATION

Greetings in the wonderful name of our lord Jesus Christ.  Last Sunday, many people received money miracles.  God of our father, Pst Alph Lukau, confirmed the word of his servant.  To God be the glory.  Family, you are all encouraged to register for the upcoming International Visitors Program (IVP) to be held from the 4th to 6th May 2018. Please remember that John the Baptist’s existence destroyed the devil, hence Herodias decided to kill him.  Many of you do not know that when you do what God called you to do you disturb the devil.  Herodias is demanding your head because your work is contradicting with what Herodias wants to do.  Many people are dying because there is a platter waiting for their head.  If you break it, you will destroy the plans of the enemy.  Please make sure that you are part of this IVP and call the office for more information, or go to the IVP table in foyer.

The Man of God said that we are set up for glory and miracles.  In this series of Solomonic Generation, God will build all of us financially.  We will all arise with the potential that God has given us to access the resources God has given us.  According to the world, when the church speaks about money it means greed, other things are accepted but money is not.  The concept of money has been away from the church.  The church has been educated to live their lives just waiting to get to heaven. Money has been seen as the work of the devil and if you desire prosperity, you are regarded evil.  This is how we have been conditioned to think.

Family, money must be part and parcel of your life.  Without it, you will not be able to fulfil your God given assignment.  Without it your life may amount to nothing.  We are all influenced by money. 85% of those who are in jail are there because of money problems.  The reason why we are able to come to church today is because money was involved; even the micro phone we use at church has been bought with money.  

Everywhere you go, money is important.  Today we feel edified if we hear someone telling us that he has been through hell; when he tells us that he did not know how to pay his rent. We think it edifies people because we feel that he is being humble, and modest.  When the man of God drives a good car they say he is fleshy.  Family, the bible says in heaven, we will walk on roads paved with gold and God has prepared mansions for us.  Therefore poverty is not an option. Gold and silver belongs to our God.  If money is so vital to our day to day life, we need to know more about it. He says he will give it to you.  The God who owns the cattle on the 1000 hills is our God. Those who walked with him yesterday were not broke.  We did not talk about the story of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Daniel, Shadrack, Meshack , Abednego, Joseph, etc.  All these people were wealthy in their time.

These days we only pray for shelter and water, and this is selfishness; what about the neighbour, and the orphans, etc?  Your responsibility goes beyond what you eat, wear, etc.  We cannot preach the gospel if we keep on thinking about bread and butter for ourselves.  Money is not evil, but the love of money is the root of evil.  Money is a good servant, but it’s a bad master.  Don’t allow it to rule you, but rather rule it.  God can only give it to you once he realizes that you are ready for it. Despite all the economic meltdown we had, money kept on increasing on earth.  But very few of us had access to it because most of us do not have money skills.  Unless you have the skills for it you will get it today and lose it all tomorrow.

You have to have your mind in the right direction; money is not evil nor pride.  Everything God wants to do will begin by you putting your mind right.  If we keep on thinking that money is diabolical, how are we going to help vulnerable children?  Let us re-align our system; money is not the root of evil, but the love of money is the root of all evil.  The best way to help the poor is by having a lot of money.  You cannot help anyone who is drowning unless you know how to swim.  All of us have to do what we have to do.  The burden is not on one man, but on all of us.  If all of us can tap into prosperity, no one will cry.  Poverty is not the will of God.  The will of God is for all of us to arise in prosperity.  It is part and parcel of the message of the Kingdom of God.  This message will set us free.  The true wealth is what we have inside; your aggressive hopes.  Jesus became poor so that we can be rich.  You can prosper, God has resources for you, and they have your name on them.  All God requires of you is to believe it in your heart.  The how belongs to him.

11 – 18 MAR 2018
SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: MATTHEW 10:7 “As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.”

Family, I greet you in the wonderful name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  The past weekend was glorious as usual.  The couple that Pst Alph prophesied on last week, regarding the man who was taken to the witch doctor by his aunt in to the Vaal, gave the testimony.  God showed the Man of God that the man was in the house of the witch doctor, with a black bowl in front of him, and he was given the mirror to look into.  Papa said if he would do what the witch doctor told him to do; he was going to mess up everyone (i.e. himself, his wife and children).  I thank God for using Pastor Alph Lukau to rescue the lives of this family.  

In the scripture above, the Word of God says preach (To preach is to proclaim what God says) that the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.  What do you mean by this?  The Kingdom of God is here.  It’s not far. What is the Kingdom?  Is it where we are going when we die?  The Kingdom of God is the system of God or God’s way of doing things.  God in heaven has ways of running his affairs.  The Kingdom is here, we who are born of God belong to the system of God.  What matters is our relationship with God.  We are saved by grace and in the Kingdom of God, there is no condemnation.  Your sins are forgiven. So the good news of the Kingdom is that the kingdom of God is here.  There are three things that matters in the Kingdom of God:

1. Healing the sick and casting out demons

2. Freely you have been given and freely you must give

3. Every worker in the kingdom is worthy of reward

1. Demonstration of the power of God:  Without demonstration of power the Kingdom of God is absent.  You cannot talk about the system of God without referring to the power of God.  Is there a child of God who is a vehicle of the power of God?

The Kingdom of God is not a denomination.  It has nothing to do with membership.  The sick get healed, the lame walk, the blind see, the captives are set free.  In our days, if you preach the Kingdom of God you get persecuted.  It is a demonstration that God is alive.  If all you do is tell them about John 3:16.  They will not mind you.  But the moment you speak about the Kingdom of God, the world will stand against you.

2. Freely you have received, freely you shall give:  This is key for every believer.  The same way you have received it, it is your responsibility to give.  When God blessed you, he did so having somebody in mind.  Your survival depends on your ability to release to others.  The day you receive and cannot give, you begin to die; just like a dead sea. Pull your sleeves child of God; you are more than a conqueror in our generation.  Time to cry is no more.  There are people who love mourning.  The Kingdom of God is all about the power of God demonstrated. Anything you have received, you can give.  If God has blessed you with huge financial grace, you can communicate it to somebody else.   The bible says I will bless those who bless you.

1 Cor 4:7

For who makes a difference from another, what do you have that you did not receive?  Why boast if you did receive?  This implies that you have received.  Some people pray better than you, but they are gone.  You have received the word, go and share it.  You have received healing, go and share it.  Everytime you have opportunity to go out there and make a difference in somebody else’ life, wealth follows you.  When you do so, your pocket will fill up automatically.   If you want to be one of those God will use mightily, be a giver.  The tree does not produce the fruit for itself.  Live your life to better another.  Is there a life that has improved because of you?  

3. God’s provision for those who labour in the house of God:  God has never ceased to be the provider.  As you go for God’s mission, don’t worry about provision, divine provision is coming your way. God says he will take care of your when you go to proclaim the message of the Kingdom of God.  It is impossible to serve God and be empty handed.  Family, every word of God shall manifest in your life soon.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

1. Encounter is happening on 17th of March and the classes have started.  Leaders are encouraged to send their disciples to this encounter.

2. We will be having our MEGA CELL on Saturday 24 March at our church in Kramerville from 10am to 12noon.  All the disciples are expected so you are advised to start making arrangements for transport.
