May The Sunrays Of God Shine Upon You By Pastor Samuel OBAFAIYE here are different levels of lights which are dependent upon the source. The effectiveness of any light is dependent on the power of the source it emanates from. 1 Corinthians 15:41 - There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. I remember as a child, when my father would send us to go and buy light bulbs. He would repeatedly warn us to check the watts written on them. We must not bring back a 30 watts, this is because the effectiveness of the 30 watts bulb is very low. He calls it dullish light. It must be 100watts for external lights and 60watts for indoor ones. May your light not become dull in Jesus name. In Gen. 1:14-19, on the fourth day of creation, God made the two great lights: Sun and Moon. He also made the Stars. The Sun He called the bigger light and the Moon the smaller. No wonder the physical effect of the Sun is greater on the universe more than any other light. May you enjoy the higher working of the Living God in Jesus name. Prior to this though, on the 1st day of creation, God made Light to divide day from night. This Light is the brightness, the brilliance and the radiance of God that supersede even the rays from sunlight (Gen. 1:3-5). May God put His brightness upon your life. May the super brilliance of God be seen upon your life. In Geography, we are told that the ray of the Sun is very RCCG EFA LEEDS powerful. Its surface temperature is close to 6000oC. It's HOUSE FELLOWSHIP CENTRES so powerful that none can mess around it, otherwise they'll get burnt. I pray that no one will mess around your Ls1, LS2, LS7 & LS8 life in Jesus name. Flat 147, 20-20 House, Bishop Oyedepo in one of his book I read said after he Skinner lane read Kenneth Hagin's book 'The Believer's Authority', in LS7 1BE (Ajayi’s Residence) the next programme he did, he challenge the witches to come out. Surprisingly, some came out. So he asked them what they do when people like him are approaching. Ls3, LS4, LS5, Ls6, Ls12, LS13 & LS16 The witches said they will clear from the way. This is 15 – 17 Walter Street, because the light of God protects His own. May God Off Kirkstall Road, surround you with His light that can’t be approach by Leeds, Ls4 2BB any kind of spirit or being in Jesus name. (Church Premises) Some of us are carrying 5watts around, for not getting close to God. With that demons will slap you and run LS10 & LS11 away. May God increase your watts. May your spiritual 1 Murray View, voltage increase in Jesus name. Middleton, Geography even said that the radiance of the Moon is a Leeds, LS10 4GD reflection of the light from the Sun. The good news is we can each be a Moon to the Most High. A reflector of the YORK ROAD Sun of God. 98 Cartwell Drive LS15 0PD. The bible talks about Jesus as a powerful Sun which rays (The Adunmade’s will be like furnace. But the same rays will make us well and healthy. BRADFORD Malachi 4:2 - But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun Flat 9, Thirkhill Court, of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye Ripley Street, shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. West Bowling, May we be a reflector of that Sun in Jesus name. Bradford BD5 7TY

TO GOD BE THE GLORY
To God be the glory, great things He has done; So loved He the world that He gave us His Son, Who yielded His life an atonement for sin, And opened the life gate that all may go in. Refrain Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the earth hear His voice! Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the people rejoice! O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son, And give Him the glory, great things He has done. O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood, To every believer the promise of God; The vilest offender who truly believes, That moment from Jesus a pardon receives. Refrain Great things He has taught us, great things He has done, And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son; But purer, and higher, and greater will be Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see. Refrain Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the earth hear His voice! Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the people rejoice! O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son, And give Him the glory, great things He has done.
RCCG EFA LEEDS MARCH THEME - DIVINE SUNSHINE
UNSHINE can be defined as the sun's light or direct rays; the warmth and light given by the sun's rays; a spot or surface on which the sun's light shines; or something (as a person, condition, or influence) that radiates warmth, cheer, or happiness. Divine sunshine will therefore be the beaming of light and direct rays proceeding from God Himself which brings warmth, cheer or happiness. In Acts 12:1-12, the bible tells us that after King Herod had killed James, the brother of John, he arrested Peter with the intention to kill him also. Herod was of the view that if Peter who was very outspoken was put out the way, the Gospel will suffer a terrible setback. Somehow, it looked like the plan was working as there was no demonstration or public pressure to release Peter by the people. But the Church was praying for him ceaselessly. The night preceding his supposed execution, God demonstrated His power. The Divine sunshine from heaven beamed on Peter and his freedom was effected! The rays of light made his handcuffs to fall off; it deafens the ears of his captors; it made the armed guards and warders to sleep off; and made several iron gates to open voluntarily! In this month of March, God said He will beam His supernatural sunshine upon us. The rays of heaven will be concentrated on us. This will set open doors before us compulsorily, grant us shocking freedom and destabilise the Herods, Soldiers and Warders chasing after our destiny. Chains and fetters around any of us will be shattered and the ears of those monitoring us will be deafened to our progress as they embark on involuntary slumber in Jesus name. Pastor Samuel Obafaiye
THE RCCG (EVERLASTING FATHER’S ASSEMBLY) 2014 PROPHECY. THEME: OUR YEAR OF NEW BEGINNING Exodus 12:2
s 2013 was running to an end. I began to ask God what He will do for us in the year 2014. Few weeks ago, God impressed it on my heart that He is making us to enter into an era of New Beginnings. He said, He will fulfil our time in the year 2014. Our time will be 8 years in 2014, 8 been a number of new beginning. God said, ‘Though I have taken you to a time of completion at 7 years, yet I’m ready to start work on you afresh’. In Gen. 1:1-4, prior to the beginning, God made the heaven and the earth. God reside in heaven, but the earth was without form and void, and also dark. At a later stage, God decided He wanted to make a new beginning with the earth and He began with light and other things, until He could confirm that the earth was equally good. God recently told me that what He intends for Everlasting Father’s Assembly to become is not yet revealed.’I am about to begin anew with you’, He said. ‘I will take you back to Genesis i.e Creation and re-make you’. He said, He will make us into a more impressive form, shape and brilliance.’I will also introduce a new kind of light into you to make your difference from before very obvious’. He said. Do you know that Manufacturers remake their products mainly for two reasons? (1) They identified a fault or error in the system after usage. (2) They just desire to make something nicer; more current or a newer model. God said regarding Everlasting Father’s Assembly, He will repair every faults within our system in 2014. He has also desire to make us into something more glorious. When we started in 2006, we were like something without form and shape, it looks like few people joking. Thank God for then and glory be to God for now. Today, God says, ‘I will start you again in your 8th year’. He said, He will take us back to the things we enjoyed in our first start and then make us to experience even more. God then gave me our anchor scripture as: Exodus 12:2 -This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. The daylight of 1st January shall be the beginning of months and years to us; it shall also be the first month of 2014. Everything that has happened to us before now are just occurrences before our real beginning. He said your enjoyment up till now is just like a test drive. You will now begin to move about confidently and comfortably. Hear again the promise from God to us for 2014. Revelation 21:5-6 -And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. By Pastor Samuel Obafaiye

God’s Insurance Policy - The Rewards Are Exceedingly GREAT
By Dr. Abayomi SANUSI
NTRODUCTION:- The desire for safety, stability, and confidence for the future is fundamental to human beings, and provides the basis cleverly exploited by the insurance industry. There is an insurance product for almost anything! True and unfailing assurance of safety, stability and confidence for for the future stretching to eternity, can however only be found in God. In this month of exceeding great rewards I pray that WEEKLY ACTIVITIES your hope, faith, trust in God and work for Him will be reciprocated with great and lasting recompense SUNDAYS with fantastic testimonies following in Jesus’ name. ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL: Insurance policies provide a means to guarantee 10:15 compensation against losses or undesirable CELEBRATION SERVICE: occurrences. They are a non-divine promise of safety, 11:00AM - 1:00PM stability, and confidence for the future! Many people HOUSE FELLOWSHIP: loathe insurance companies. Among other things BTW 5:30PM - 7:30pm opinions regarding insurance are shaped by WEDNESDAYS unpleasant experiences, expectation of poor service, perception of insurance as burdensome DIGGING DEEP: requirements of the law. Some companies are even 6:30PM - 8:30PM SATURDAYS perceived as masters at worldly cunningness to unjustly amass wealth, at the expense of acceptable EVANGELISM (4th Saturday) 3:00PM moral practice. It is unsurprising therefore that many do not to DRAMA MEETING: 5PM CHOIR MEETING;bother with details of their insurance policy details! 5:00PM Do you have a spiritual insurance policy with God?

(5) Conditions: 1ST FRIDAY (10PM -1AM) Rules of conduct of the insured, detailing the duties and obligations of the insured- absence of which may lead to forfeiture of coverage. (6) Endorsements: Subsequent or additional conditions (further exclusions or modifications) not found in the original conditions. This can be a tricky minefield, but typically caters for the interest of the insurer. (7) Policy Riders: Further amendments and conditions. The worldly insurance arrangement has benefits, provides employment and business. Things can get messy and complicated. There can be disputes about roles, responsibilities, and so on. You never get that with God. In fact in the world the sacredness of caring is commodified; there is punishment of weakness and vulnerability. God’s WATCH OUR CHANNEL arrangement is entirely different. Corruptibility of worldly insurance Commercial insurance is a bet where the insured person bets against their insurer that the defined unfavourable events will happen to them, forcing the insurer to pay.
