This Series theme: Claiming and Obtaining Your Possession
Topic: Discovering the Power inside You
From generation to generation certain people had discovered the power that is created with human being; and, used it. The two major sources of power are either from the living God or from Satan. You will learn from our week study that anyone that do not accept Jesus Christ genuinely as Lord and Savior will be an agent of Satanic power. Our next week's study will lead you to the process towards obtaining God's power. Who you are will always communicate to what you experience. Your true self is known by what you do. The great philosopher Aristotle concluded this fact by saying, "WE ARE WHAT WE REPEATEDLY DO, THEREFORE IT IS NOT AN ACT BUT A HABIT. "Examine your characters and proof if they resemble that of Jesus Christ. Separate yourself from evil and evil doers because evil companion corrupt good manners (1 Corinthians 15:33; 1 Timothy 4:12; 2 Timothy 2:14-22; 1 Thessalonians 5:22).
What is power? Power is defined as an ability to do or act. When mankind was originally created, he was created in the Living God's complete image, likeness, character and, He infested in Him the ability to control all other creatures that were on the face of the earth. Since, the living God has the ability to think and create effectively, He gave same ability to mankind. But that ability was polluted in the Garden of Eden when Adam and his wife sinned against God. Godly ability turned to become Satanic-controlled ability (Read Genesis 1:26-31; 3:1-24; Proverb 18:20-21).
What is authority? Authority is the right that is given to act or command. The living God gave humanity the right to have dominion (or power) over every other creatures or things that are on the face of the earth. Satan stole that right from humanity at the fall (Read Matthew 4:4-11 Luke 4:5-8). Notice that Satan claimed in Luke 4:6 that earthly kingdom was delivered to him. God did not deliver the kingdom to him, he was forced out of heaven (Revelation 12:7-11). God delivered the kingdom of this earth to humanity. Thanks be to God for surrendering the physical life of His own Son unto humanity in order to restore the power to them.
Canterfeit versus Real Power Read Daniel 3:1-30. Notice that the Babylonian king demontrated the power of Satan (by creating a god with gold) and commanded all people to worship it which is a violation God's commandment in Exodus 20:3-6. Followers of the Living God refused to worship the image. Since they trusted in the Living God they disregarded the threat of fire and death. They obeyed their God to the extent that they were thrown into fire. Notice that Nebuchadnezzar testified to their trust in the power of the Living God (Verse 28). While Satan's power that was demonstrated by the king is limited and ineffective in the presence of God's power; power of God is unlimited and unchallengeable. This power is housed by the Spirit of God in the followers of Jesus. (John 7:37-39).
Read Daniel 6:1-28. Refuse to follow masses to become God's enemy. Since the Living God created the heavens and the earth; He will deliver you from the mouth of all lions. The power that will be created from the spirit of Christ in you is greater that all power. Since the Living God condemned sin including homosexuality, do not support the enemies of God that are waging spiritual war against their Creator. Same-sex marriage is evil (Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1:26-32). Pray for victims of homosexual demons that God should set them free from this horrific stronghold. Believers, these victims need your help. Our nation need your help. Pray today for our elected officials. They need freedom from the stronghold of Satan.
Read John 14:1-31. Write down and meditate what Christ say by the power of His name. Examine that you need to bury your pride and humble yourself before God by obeying His word unquestionably for you to benefit in His word. The exaltation of Christ comes to being today and forever because He humbled Himself before God (Phillipians 2:5-9).
Read Matthew 28:1-20. Notice that Christ Jesus declared the end of Satan's power in the lives of His followers. John 19:30. He started to demonstrate the significant of possessing power above Satan by giving us power to destroy them before His death on the Cross (Luke 9:1; 10:19). His ressurection from death proofs that He is alive. Since He says that He is with us always..., it means that His Spirit lives in us (1 Corinthians 3:16).
Read John 17:1-26 Notice that this is the prayer that Christ prayed for us because He was arrested by His enemies. Claim these for your self.
Prayer Points: Pray to the Father God Almighty in the name of Jesus Christ that Satan, his demons, Adam, the curse of the law, enemies and their works should be totally and permanently put to death in every area of your life since it is written that Christ has redeemed us from the works of the law and that you will thread on serpent and all power of the enemy and that no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper. Christ has already conquered the enemy by the power of His death and resurrection (Galatians 3:10-13; Luke 10:19; Joshua 1:5; John 19:30; Romans 5:9-10).
Pray that Christ Jesus, His names, Abrahamic promises and the living word of God should be exalted and glorified in every area of your life totally and completely. Claim these by faith.
Pray for me that as my Master who is the Lord Jesus Christ is using me to destroy Satan's kingdom and establish His Kingdom worldwide; He (Jesus Christ) should continuously be exalted and glorified in every area of my life, these include but not limited to all the ministries of the church, my wife and children, all the entire members of the Absolute Faith® world-wide.
Pray for the Republic of Somalia that the living God should heal the land and bring restoration (2 Chronicles 7:14). Pray against homosexual demonic stronghold that has enslaved many people in the world.

THE ABSOLUTE® FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST INTERNATIONAL CHURCH
THE BISHOP’S INAUGURAL SPEECH THAT WAS DELIVERED BY
BISHOP (DR.) JOHN S. OLUDARE-FAMODIMU
AT HIS INAUGURATION ON
JULY 19, 2009
The Pastor-At-Large, Rev.(Dr.) Elisha Ajayi, Senior Deacon Gordon, fellow members of the Board of Trustees, distinguished ministers of the gospel, distinguished guests from fellow churches, family members, friends and my loving wife Rhoda who is the beautiful first lady of the Absolute Faith® In Jesus Christ organization worldwide, ladies and gentlemen. With humility, I sincerely submit to you that I am honored by your presence and by the privilege of being in the same vehicle at the beginning of this century together. I marvel that after 21 years of being in ministry I can say there is no place I would rather be and no group with whom I would rather associate with than you respectable people. Rhoda and I believe that the best way we can invest our lives is to give ourselves fully now to the propagation of the undiluted and untwisted gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and equip 21st century leaders within the local church worldwide. In doing this, the Absolute Faith® Bible and Theological Institute will soon be born and go into full force with tireless work of our able Attorney Mr. Thomas Sassone.
During my seminary education at Alliance Theological Seminary, Nyack, New York, Dr. Martin Sander, the professor of pastoral theology once called me after delivering a sermon entitled, “Believers Security”, Martin said, “The world need to hear the message that the Lord send you to Her”, unquote. At first, I was momentarily captured by the unthought-of possibility that we would end our ministries in a new century and millennium. I stand here with that goal coming more clearly into view and realize that I am bonded to preach the whole gospel of the Lord Christ to the whole world.
As a monist and dogmatic apologetic evangelist, I am bonded by my Master Jesus Christ to defend the inerrancy of the bible since all scripture is God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and biblical authority must be the only authority to be followed in controlling human affairs, nothing should be added or remove (Revelation 22:18-19). Therefore, the agenda for Absolute Faith® is to prepare people with same philosophy of ministry for Century 21.
Leith Anderson, a true 21st century pastor recently stated that persons will succeed, or fail, on the basis of how they will view and handle change. If change is seen as threatening—something to be feared, slowed down or ignored, the effectiveness of that person or church will be in jeopardy. If, however, change is seen as opportunity, the future is as bright as the promises of God.
I offer several changes that vastly affect universal church: evangelical resurgence, the post-Christian era ahead, attacking of postmodernism that gives rise to family value declination. And equip international growth of the Christian church with technological advancement; eradicate pluralistic ideological views that are killing Christ in the church. Since the acceptance of ungodly traditionalistic culture by Christ’s followers has left the church powerless, we need to go back to the bible and establish the truth. Our responses to these radical changes will measure our effectiveness as a 21st century Ambassadors of Christ Jesus.
The Resurgence of Evangelicalism and Pentecostalism
Absolute Faith® In Jesus Christ Organization is a Christ-centered, bible believing Christian church. By that I mean that we are committed to the deity of Jesus, the authority and infallibility of the Bible and the belief that individuals can personally experience the life of God within them through the power of the Holy Spirit. We will continue to carry these core beliefs into our future.
A half century ago, Evangelicals were a small, fragmented and sometimes contentious group within Protestant Christianity. Thanks to The National Association of Evangelicals, founded in 1942, the emergence of strong evangelical leaders such as Carl F. H. Henry and Harold John Ochenga, the birth of new evangelical and charismatic pastors and the monumental growth of others, Evangelicals have grown to number 40 million in America, and have become a dominant force in American Protestantism. We are sometimes maligned, often incorrectly lumped together politically by media as the “religious right” and sometimes we do not know how to act in our new position of strength. The Evangelical and Pentecostal movements are growing and undoubtedly will continue to do so and perhaps even further explode in this century. Absolute Faith® is strategically positioned to be an organization where evangelical and Pentecostal ideology will continue to thrive. Christian faith has been put to rigorous test, social influence like abortion, re-definition of marriage and many other issues have prompted the church to lose her call. During the Son of Mary’s physical appearance on earth, He preached and taught the total gospel of God’s Kingdom. In Mark 1:15, Christ told His followers that, “The Kingdom of God has come, believe the gospel.” In Matthew 28:18-20, Immediately He resurrected from the grave, Jesus Christ called and sent us to the world to make disciples. A disciple is one that is conformed to the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ which is the image of God that was lost by humanity in the Garden of Eden because God originally created us in His own image and likeness (Genesis 1:26-28). Christ’s messengers are bonded to carry His message. Having established Los Angeles Police untrustworthy scrupulous action during O.J. Simpson trial; his Attorney, Johnny Cochran told the court that, If you cannot trust the messenger, you cannot trust the message. This statement is true of the church. Since the bible is God’s infallible word of God, the messenger of God must agree with the biblical message and practice all. The church is supposed to be the channel through which God will take-over the ruler ship of the world from Satan that defeated Adam in the Garden of Eden. Where in the scripture do we read the approval of union between same-sex? Homosexuality is a sinful practice against God and against humanity, while the bible confirmed in Leviticus 20:13 that it is an abomination in the face of God, Romans 1:26-32 informed us that anyone that support such behavior will not enter into God’s Kingdom. Satan’s agenda has always been to fight against God, His creator. He consistently carries out this agenda through humanity. I call upon every minister, politician and Christian that is hearing me today to come back to God. Your term on the face of the earth is temporary. Heaven is real, hell is sure. Where are you working to spend your eternity?
Evangelicals, despite positive prospects for the future, continue to be fragmented. Our influence continues to be dissipated by various theological traditions, denominations and para-church organizations, resulting in a host of people sharing core beliefs who nonetheless seldom interact with each other. Theologically, we have gone our separate ways, we adopt different theological believes. This has given rise to disunity of the universal church that gives Satan the opportunity to rule within some churches: Reformed, Wesleyan, Pentecostal, and Dispensational. For a century now, each group has given each other, at best, only passive recognition. Seldom, in this century, has there been serious dialogue and cooperation.
In this century, the questions should not be centered primarily on the five points of Calvinism, whether Christians can lose their salvation or the exact moment of the end-time rapture. This century question must be, if it is not already: When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth? Gene Robinson is a gay Bishop within the Episcopal Church. Majority members of the council of Bishops voted to put him on this position. Were they Bishops of the living God or that of Satan? Paul ones ask the Church in Corinth to examine themselves if they are in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5). I call upon all of us to do so because all sins will be judged. Notice that while God has no respect for any human being, He respects faith in His Words.
The Post-Christian 21st Century
Midst evangelical growth, this century promises to be post-Christian. In our lifetime we have witnessed the systematic dismantling of Christian influence in society. Growing up in our society is a generation who, in the language of St. Paul, live “without God and without hope in this world.” For that, our country United States has paid an enormous price.
Fast disappearing are absolutes, virtues shaped by the Hebrew Christian tradition, and children who have any Christian memory. Children of divorce could dwarf the number who will come from what we know as traditional families. Innocent children that are adopted by same-sex couples because of their inability to reproduce since they have violated one of the natural, moral and spiritual laws of God. Overwhelming societal needs will face those who minister in this Century. Current baby busters will bring their distrust of all institutions into older adulthood. The task of the church will widen from care of the soul to life reconstruction for people damaged by social and moral decline.
Life reconstruction, for this century, will need to include the rebuilding of people who come to the church as well as for those to whom they will minister. The number of children reared in a stable home with two biological parents and nurtured by years in church will continue to decrease. As a result, the church will need to revisit the bible and re-establish family value. The preparation of 21st century leaders must focus on the personal, spiritual, character and leadership formation of the next generation not just celebration. We must invest these values into our youths. Youths and singles’ courtship must be without fornication as commanded by the scripture (Hebrew 13:4). True church and true messengers of God must teach and practice the whole gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. We need to agree with the general letter of John that holistic prosperity is equivalent to the amount of the Words of God that fill your soul, ‘Beloved I pray that you may be prosperous in all things and be in health just as your soul is prosperous” (3 John 2).
The complexities of the 21st Century Society will demand a new paradigm for youth leadership preparation. More accurately, it will require the rebirth of the best elements of an older one. In early America, adulthood preparation was carried out in part by practicing parents who mentored their children by modeling. These parents will not do what they do not want their children to do. In this century, adulthood preparation has been transferred away from both the local church and the mentor to movies, school teachers to mention few.
The Internationalization of the Church
The 20th century will go on record as one of the great centuries of Church expansion. When our century began, Christianity was largely lodged in Europe and the western hemisphere despite impressive and successful missionary activity in the 18th century. The last fifty years has been marked by a rapid growth of Christianity in the developing countries of the world.
The distinctive characteristic of Christianity as this century closes is that it has become truly international. Church growth in Asia and Africa continues to out-pace growth in North America. According to missionary researcher David Barrett, Africa has already passed North America in the number of people professing allegiance to Christ. Early in Century 21, missionaries outside the West will exceed those coming from North America. No longer does the American church dominate the world Christianity, except in economic terms. Century 21 will see the whole Church taking the whole Gospel to the world.
The monumental redistribution of Christians provides a new challenge to conventional ways of doing missions. It is particularly urgent for us at Absolute Faith® to prepare missionaries who are culturally sensitive and able to recapture a sense to reach the unreached peoples of the world. In doing this, we are addressing people’s holistic needs: their social, spiritual and economic needs must be addressed. Three years ago, we established a worldwide youth ministry that is addressing the needs of the next generation of youths.
While it is important to prepare missionaries in new ways for this Century, we close the last century with the painful awareness that one-third of the world’s people know little or nothing about Jesus Christ; that two-thirds claim no allegiance to Him and that 6,000 – 8,000 people groups have no visible church among them. These somber realities defy growing notions that the 21st century can respectably lay the missions enterprise to rest. Very soon, we will be starting our own institution of higher learning where missionaries will be trained to take the total gospel to the whole world.
The great need of the overseas church is Christian leadership training, particularly for high level leaders. Unless these leaders are prepared to lead their churches, the current explosion of growth will almost surely decline. While western missionaries will continue to be needed, the crying need is also for preparation of high-level overseas leaders.
Multi-culturalism is both a beautiful story and very hard work. It is a joyful experience at Absolute Faith®.
Here at Absolute Faith®, we have a grand opportunity to live together, to learn from each other and to unlearn many prejudices which are required for effective 21st century ministry. The thriving evangelical church cannot carry its racial prejudices into Century 21. We at Absolute Faith® have strived to break down the walls of prejudice which threatens both the credibility of the church and the survival of our society. Our church here in Brooklyn comprises of people from nine different countries: Nigeria, Guyana, Ghana, Jamaica, Brazil, Trinida and Tobego, Haiti, Republic of Benin and United States. Many of us are converted from other religion: Islam, Hindus, and Catholics to name a few. The one thing that joins us together is Jesus Christ. We are all one-nation under Christ indivisible forever. Our Church is presently established in Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Republic of Benin, Togo, Uganda and United States
Geographically, Absolute Faith’s Headquarters lives on the edge of one of the world’s great international communities which is here in Brooklyn. We live, as we should, with the nagging awareness that we need to be more involved in preparing intercultural leaders for the world. It is time that we join in some creative, bold and risk-taking efforts to significantly impact the 21st century world. I want to join with all of like mind.
Two thousand and nine years ago, a blind man came to Jesus. When Christ Jesus asked; “What do you want me to do for you?” the blind man ostensibly could have asked for anything. His answer was simple and correct: “I want to see!” At Absolute Faith In Jesus Christ International Church, we could ask the Almighty for a lot of things: a tremendous church growth; an endowment of $100 million for our building project.
We come instead to ask our Lord to open our eyes to see. We want to see and respond in faith to the exploding evangelical opportunities of the 21st century.
We want to see clearly the desperate moral situation of our times, to mend the lives of ministers whose lives have been damaged by the darkness and to send them forth as messengers of the light.
We pray, “Lord Jesus Christ, help us to see the new world in which your Church will be built. Help us to shed the cataracts of cultural ignorance, provincial thinking and racism; to be a people of God who truly love one another. Help us to see, and respond to the glorious new church which you are building around the world and to know how to respond at Absolute Faith®. Allow us to participate in the international gathering of the people of God which will find its final culmination at the end of time where we will gather from every kindred, tribe and nation. Help us to cast out the rebellious demon of homosexuality from the lives of its victims. Give our elected officials the wisdom to distinguish civil rights from being used by Satan to carry out his agenda in order to rebel against the commandment of the Almighty God.
Help us all to see these and so much more, in Jesus Christ name.
May the Living God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ keep us all. Amen.
