TEXT: ECCLESIASTES 5: 1 - 5
1Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.
2 Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
3 For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words.
4 When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.
5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.
Key Verse: “For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee” Deuteronomy 23: 14
Don’t make strange noises or strange shouts during prayer to distract people from their prayer to yourself. Control yourself. The spirit of a prophet is subject to that prophet. Don’t utter some unholy words like, Ride on Pastor! Don’t eat or chew gum when service is going on. Don’t drop tissue paper, biscuit, sweet wrappers, food particles or pure water leather on the church floor or use it to litter the church premises. If food is served, after eating keep the church clean.
Don’t reserve seats for people. Allow people who come early to find seats to sit on. If someone takes your seat, don’t quarrel, find another seat. Don’t allow your phone to ring or answer calls inside worship service, if the call is so necessary, take it outside. Don’t urinate or defecate around the church premises or allow your children to do so. Use the toilet or urinary and flush after use.
Don’t steal people’s things in the house of God. You will carry curse for yourself. Don’t sell or buy when service is on. Don’t come late to church. Don’t murmur, complain or argue. Don’t talk carelessly. Obey all the rules and regulations. When you go to conference, don’t bath outside. Use the bathrooms. Men, don’t walk about with knickers. Women, don’t tie wrapper on your chest and walk about. Cover yourselves properly. When you are in the hostel and you feel to pray, pray silently or go outside where you can pray aloud. Don’t disturb others who are sleeping or meditating. Show love one to another.
“Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.” 1 Peter 3:8-9. Be patient in everything. Don’t allow idle words from your mouth. Be sober and be prayerful. Don’t allow anything hinder your blessing.
