BIBLE TEXT: MARK 5: 35-43.
35. While He yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?
36. As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
37. And He suffered no man to follow Him, save Peter and James and John the brother of James.
38. And He cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue and seeth the tumult and them that wept and wailed greatly.
39. And when He was come in, He saith unto them, why make ye this ado and weep? The damsel is not dead but sleepeth.
40. And they laughed Him to scorn. But when He had put them all out, He taketh the father and the mother with Him and entereth in where the damsel was lying.
41. And He took the damsel by the hand and said unto her, Talitha cum; which is being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee arise.
42. And straightway the damsel arose and walked for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
43. And He charged them straitly that no man should know it, and commanded that something should be given her to eat.
Let me start by saying that every form of weeping in your life will be changed to laughter (Amen).
This is a story that you know very well. It is the story of a man who had only one daughter and that one daughter was sick and then he came to call Jesus Christ to come and help. But while Jesus was coming someone decided to steal a Miracle from behind. And by the time Jesus finished with that woman; someone came from the ruler of the Synagogue house that it is too late – your daughter is dead. The situation is hopeless but Jesus Christ said don’t be afraid; “Only Believe “.
And I believe God is saying to someone here tonight: “Don’t be afraid; your tomorrow will be alright (Amen).
Well the rest of the story we have read. Jesus followed. By the time they got to the house of the ruler; there was a crowd. They were all weeping and making quite a bit of noise.
… And Jesus Christ said: “Don’t weep, the daughter not dead but only sleeping”.
Those who are weeping just a moment ago began to laugh but this time; they were laughing Him to scorn.
But then Jesus went in, held the daughter by the hand and said: “Little girl I said unto you ARISE!”
But the interesting part of the story that we want to talk on for some few minutes is that after the girl arose; Jesus Christ commanded that they should give her food to eat.
Here was a girl whose Sun has set at the age of twelve (12).
But then the Light of the world went in to her and changed everything.
So infact Jesus Christ was saying to her: Little girl Arise and Shine because we are still reading about that girl more than two thousands (2,000) years later.
There might be someone here today that the enemies thought that your Sun has set. Before this night is over; you will Arise and Shine (Amen).
… But He said to the parents of the girl: I have brought her back to life now but she has to eat in order to continue Shinning.
In other words if your own Light has just come; you must eat in order to continue to Shine.
Tonight as you come to the Lord’s Table and as you eat; you will begin to Shine (Amen).
But there is another story in Luke 15: 11-24. It was the story of the Prodigal son that you know very well. He was the son of a rich man who collected his inheritance and went off to a far country. And for some times in the far country; he shone as everybody was gathering around him because he has plenty of money to spend.
But then, he lost everything, spent everything up completely and then the famine came. And then the man who used to Shine was now struggling with pigs for food.
Then he made a statement; he said: “I will Arise”. And he arose and came back home.
And when he got back home; the first thing the father said should be done is: “Let’s have a party”. Let this boy eat and begin to Shine again.
And then there is yet the third story in 1 Kings 19: 4-8. It is the story of a man that you all know very well – Elijah by name.
He was Shinning; he has just shone on Mount Carmel. He was Shinning; he has just beat a chariot in a race.
But he became discouraged and he was beginning to think of death. But then an Angel came, smote him and said to him: “Arise, Eat; so that you can continue to Shine.
So here are three (3) categories of people present here tonight:
Category 1: There are those who has never shone before but their Light has come tonight – Amen!
For them to Shine, they must eat.
Category 2: They are those who used to Shine but for one reason or the other; they have lost their Shinning.
They need like the Prodigal son to eat so that they can begin to Shine again.
Category 3: They are those who are Shinning even up till this moment but for one reason or the other; they are beginning to feel a bit discouraged.
They too need to eat tonight so that they can keep on Shinning.
Whatever may be your category tonight as you come to the Lord’s Table; I can with all boldness say to you: “ARISE AND SHINE!”
… Do I hear somebody say amen to that – Amen!
But you cannot “Arise and Shine” if you have never had contact with the Light. And Jesus Christ is the Light.
So, if you are here tonight and you have never really ever given your life to Jesus Christ and yet you want to Shine with the rest of us; I invite you to come forward now.
… Come to the Saviour, Come to the Light of the world.
Let Him wash away your sins with His Blood and your Shinning will begin.
And if you are a backslider – you are once a child of God but you lost your Salvation and you want it back so that you can begin to Shine again; I invite you – Come to the altar now and let God restore you so that your Shinning can begin afresh.
So am gong to count from 1 to 4. Before I say 4; if you want to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, come. If you are a backslider and you want to be restored back to Jesus Christ; come.
… Am counting now!
And those of you who has come forward and those of you who are on the way; hurry up – Come to the Lord now. Let Him save your soul and let Him restore you if you are a backslider.
If you are coming to the Lord for the first time; talk to the Lord: Ask Him to save your soul and wash you clean in His Blood.
And the rest of us; let us stretch our hands towards these people and intercede for them. And pray that the One who saved our souls will save their own souls too. That the Almighty God, the “Great Restorer” will restore to Him every backsliders this evening.
Let’s call on the Almighty God for a minute or two before i pray.
… And those of you who are on the way; you have to hurry up now because I want to pray for Salvation and Restoration. Hurry up very quickly.
… Thank you Father; in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
GO PRAYS: Saviour, I want to bless your Name for your Words. I want to thank you because there is always room at the Cross for every sinners.
I want to thank you because there is always room in your home for the backsliders who want to return home to you.
Please accept our thanks in Jesus Name – Amen.
Am committing those people who has come forward to your Hands; Lord God Almighty please save their souls in Jesus Name. Let your Blood wash away their sins, write their names in the “Book of Life”.
Every backsliders who has come back to you tonight Father, please restore them in Jesus Name.
And I pray that from now on, whenever they call on you; you will answer them by Fire.
Thank you Almighty God; in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
… Praise the Lord!
Now I want to rejoice with those of you who has come forward. I want to promise you that from now on; I will be praying for you. And I will need your names, addresses and Prayer request.
If you turn to your left; you will see someone with a Placard there. Please follow her/him and they will take you to where some Pastors are waiting to collect the information that I needed from you. And then, they will bring you back very quickly.
… God bless you as you begin to go now.
Let’s give God a big round of applause as these people begin to leave now. Keep clapping.
ADMINISTRATION OF THE HOLY COMMUNION
Tonight as you come to the Table of the Lord; you must know that you are coming to eat so that you can Shine.
So when you eat the bread; your Prayers will be Lord anything in my life that will hinder me from Shinning for the Lord, please uproot it tonight. Is it sickness, weakness or any form of contamination from the enemies.
As I partake of the bread tonight, anything that will not allow me to Shine for you; uproot in Jesus Name.
Then of course when we have all been served with the wine; we hold on to it till we have all been served then I will tell you how to pray at that stage.
The Lord Jesus the very night of which He was betrayed took the bread and when He has given thanks; He broke it and said: “Take, eat; this is my Body broken for you. Do this in remembrance of me. In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Amen).
… If you have not been served the bread or wine; shout Hallelujah!
On the Day of the Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came as a “Cloven Tongues of Fire” and sat upon each one. That was when the Apostles began to “Swim in Glory”.
Tonight, as you drink the wine; your cry to the Almighty God is that He will set you on Fire so that you begin to swim for Him.
After the same manner also He took the cup. When He has sup saying this cup is the New Testament in my Blood. Do this often as you drink this in remembrance of me. In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Amen).
… Thank you Father. Father set me on Fire for you afresh. Let me begin to Shine for you like never before. Set me on Fire for you so that I can Shine much more brighter for you. Let all the world see your Glory in my life and Glorify your Holy Name.
Thank you Father; in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
… So shall it be in Jesus Name.
Let us remain in the attitude of worship as we sit down, pass our cups to the aisles so that the Ushers can help us collect them very quickly.
And then let us prepare our offerings to say thank you to the Almighty God for the Provisions He has made so that we can continue to Shine before Him like never before.
As we prepare our offerings, we will stand on our feet and lift the offerings to the Almighty God and say Father in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ; put an end to Poverty in my life permanently – Go ahead talk to the Almighty God: King of Glory in your own marvelous way, put an end to any Poverty of any type in my life permanently so that I will be able to Shine for you even more than ever before. Thank you Father, in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
… Now dance to the nearest basket; drop your offerings then you shake hands with as many people as much as possible – Fire begets Fire.
If you believed that God has set you on Fire, shake hands with others so that the Fire can be multiplied.
And so Father we want to bless your Name once again. Thank you for your Body broken for us. Thank you for your Blood shed for us. Thank you that we can partake at your Table Lord so that we can continue to Shine for you. Please accept our thanks in Jesus Name.
Father, am praying for all your children who has been partaker of the Holy Communion tonight that like never before, they will be Shinning for you.
And I pray Lord God Almighty that their Sun will never set.
Please bless their offerings, sanctify it Oh Lord and use it for your Glory.
And everything that your children need to shine for you please Provide for them in Jesus Name.
Thank you Almighty God; in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
