#145: How to Receive your Healing by Faith
On this edition of BotROCK | Building on the ROCK with Pastor Murphy: Featured Artist: Chris Tomlin Song Title: Awake My Soul Scripture: 1 Peter 2:24 How are you this morning? I trust you had a good week. Today on BotROCK with Pastor Murphy, I will be sharing with you on some simple but important steps you need to take in other to receive your healing from God. Remember, Last week I emphasized that it is God’s utmost desire to heal you now, because of His love and compassion for you. However even though God is reaching out by offering you healing, you will need to receive it by faith. Sicknesses is a very frustrating thing to handle especially now in the current economic situation. When households are finding it difficult to make ends meet, the additional burden of sickness becomes unbearable. The unfortunate thing is that you can’t afford to keep sickness on hold like many other expenses, so it eats up the limited resources that a household has to live by. This is why God is very eager to heal people especially in this season in other to give some relief to the situations they are facing. Your Faith is crucial to receiving your healing God’s best for you is that you get healed and not have to spend the limited money you have on treatments, so He is offering healing to you today. But you have to receive this healing by faith and that is not difficult at all. I will share with you today on how to receive your healing using some lessons I learnt from the woman with the issue of blood. I believe if you take the steps that the woman took, you will definitely receive your healing from God. Remember, Jesus was not aware of that healing. He only noticed that someone has drawn power from Him without His permission. And in response Jesus told her “your faith has made you whole”. He did not say I or my power has made you whole, but He said woman, your faith has made you well. Before I go into the steps of faith she took, let me give you a background of her story. This woman had been terribly sick for 12 years. I want you to picture that: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… to 12 years. That is a very long time. If you are sick for that long it is enough for you to have given up

#144: God Wants to Heal You
On this edition of BotROCK | Building on the ROCK with Pastor Murphy: Featured Artist: Chris Tomlin Song Title: Countless Wonders Scripture: Acts 10:38 Good Morning! I trust you are doing great and you are set to have an awesome weekend. Don’t let the anything weigh you down this morning, weather a dream or a depressing thought. You are more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. So shake-off that sad feeling and rejoice for this is the day the Lord has made. Your attitude will go a long way in helping you enjoy the blessings of the Lord today. Remember, He daily loads us with benefits. God desires that you live a healthy wholesome life Today on BotROCK with Pastor Murphy I want you to see how much God desires and longs that you live a healthy and prosperous life. One thing I hate with all my heart is sickness, be it a mild headache or cancer. It is obvious sickness is from the devil. I have seen sickness render an average well to do middle class family poor because of the millions they spent on hospital bills. Not only does sickness gulp money from you, it also renders you unproductive in such a way that you can’t even make money no matter how much you need it or desire to make it. It reminds me of what Jesus said in John 10. He said the thief comes not except to steal, kill or destroy. That is exactly what sickness does and that’s how I know that it is from the devil. It is sad when I hear people attribute their sickness to come from God. On the contrary Jesus said “I have come that you may have life and have it more abundantly or to the fullest. It is my opinion that every medical invention on this earth was a product of God’s love for humanity In my relationship with God I have come to understand that my hatred for sickness is nothing compared to God’s hatred for sickness. The reason is this, it is very difficult for God to stand and watch a person who He created and who He loves so much suffer from sickness. It is my opinion that every medical invention on this earth was a product of God’s love for humanity and in His love He granted men insight to come up with ideas and drugs that will relieve mankind from the deadly diseases that ravages.

#143: How to Overcome Offense & Bitterness
On this edition of BotROCK | Building on the ROCK with Pastor Murphy: Featured Artist: Casting Crowns Song Title: City on the Hill Scripture: Luke 17:1 Good Morning! Trust you had a great night rest and your week was productive. Just want to start today by encouraging you that no matter how things panned out for you this week you can choose not to be offended and give God praise instead; for God has promised to work everything together for your good -both the good and the bad things. The caveat however is that you have to love God and walk according to His purpose for you to experience this. But be rest assured of this fact: God loves you and He is faithful to fulfill all that He has promised you. In Luke 17:1, Jesus made a very profound statement that if taken to heart will cause you to live a fulfilling life. He said that it is impossible for offenses not to come. In other words, it is impossible for you to live in this earth and not be offended by several things such as the government policies, neighbors, close friends, siblings, parents and even your spouse. But how you handle these offenses will determine how far you will go in having a fruitful and enjoyable life. So today on BotROCK with Pastor Murphy we will be discussing how to overcome offenses effectively and even reap the benefits of it. “It is impossible for offenses not to come” –Jesus, Luke 17:1 But before I go into our topic for today let me ask. Is there any sick among you? Or are you sick in any way? I have good news for you. Jesus is still in the healing business and he is eager to heal you from every sickness or disease that has limited your wellbeing and productivity. So I will like to invite you for the June Healing Seminar holding on Thursday 30th of June by 5:30pm prompt @TCC Tent, Akachukwu Springs, Enugu-Onitsha Expressway just at the foot of Trans-Ekulu Flyover. Come with expectation to hear Him and be healed from all your sicknesses. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Let’s call a Spade a Spade: What’s an Offense? Simply, an offense is anything that disturbs your emotion and causes you to develop a grudge towards that person or thing. As I said earlier, as long as you are on this earth you will experience it. I believe some p

#141: Learning to Wait on God while trying to make Life-changing Decisions
On this edition of BotROCK | Building on the ROCK with Pastor Murphy: Featured Artist: Frank Edwards Song Title: Lifted Scripture: Isaiah 40: 30-31 I trust your week was great. Let me first welcome you to BotROCK with Pastor Murphy on this new time belt. I believe that this shift will launch us into greater impact. If you have been following us every Thursday by 7pm, be rest assured that you will enjoy the freshness of God’s word like never before. But if this is your first time of listening, then get ready to receive insight that will cause you to enjoy a productive life. Remember we are on air every Saturday by 7:45am on Dream 92.5FM Enugu. Baseline Rule: More than ever before, your Speech Matters! Speak Right. Currently we are going through interesting times in this Nation. Some people will call it difficult times but I choose to call it interesting times because through experience I have come to learn that fierce winds actually drive people into their destiny if you know how to navigate in it. As Apostle James said in James 3, large ships are driven by strong winds, but those winds help the captain drive the ship where he wants the ship to go using the rudder. That is why the scripture says to you dear child of God that whenever there is a casting down, you should say that there is a lifting up. Because in every casting down there is a lifting up indeed but you will never be able to navigate your life to experience it if you don’t say it from your lips first because your tongue is the rudder that stirs your life in the right direction. So don’t join the people that say negative things because of the circumstances we are currently facing. Rather look beyond the circumstances and say there is a lifting up for Nigeria, there is a lifting up for Enugu, there is a lifting up for my family and there is a lifting up for my life. As you do that, you will see how God will start navigating this country towards the glorious destiny He has prepared for us. Today on BotROCK with Pastor Murphy I want to share with you an essential skill you require to navigate these interesting times. It is the art of waiting, specifically waiting on God. Isaiah 28:16b says whoever believes God will never act hastily or be stricken with panic. So

#136: FAITH: The Title deed for your Destiny
On this edition of BotROCK | Building on the ROCK with Pastor Murphy: Featured Artist: Casting Crowns Song Title: Already There Scripture: Habakkuk 2:4 Trust you are having a great week. Today on BotROCK with Pastor Murphy we will be discussing the role or importance of your faith in fulfilling your destiny. There is nothing as satisfying to anyone, even people that don’t actively believe in Jesus, like knowing that they are doing what they were made to do. In other words walking in your destiny and fulfilling it will give you the greatest satisfaction in life. However, it is only walking by faith that will guarantee the fulfillment of your destiny. The Bible says the just shall live by faith. This means for you to live a guiltless life and fulfill your destiny, your must live by faith. That is how important faith is. So today we will be looking at faith from the perspective of a tool, given to you by God in other for you to live a fulfilling life. But before we go on, it is exactly 1 week to the Enugu Faith Seminar with Pastor ‘Poju Oyemade, the Senior Pastor of Covenant Christian Centre, Lagos. This is a destiny event that you don’t want to miss. God will meet with you personally and change your destiny forever. The Date is next week Friday, 15th April, by 5pm Prompt. The venue is TCC Tent, Akachukwu Springs, Just at the foot of Trans Ekulu flyover after CBN Bus stop. I encourage you to come on time in order to get a good seat.

As Hebrews 11:1 puts it, Faith is the substance of things you hope for. Hope has to do with the future i.e. things that are yet to be your present reality. In other words, f

#135: 2 Steps to Receive from God
On this edition of BotROCK | Building on the ROCK with Pastor Murphy: Featured Artist: Tye Tribett Song Title: Victory Scripture: Romans 4:25 How are you doing? I trust you had a splendid Easter celebration. Mine was good. I spent most of the day working and hanging out with friends. It was fun! One of the most amazing facts about Easter is that through Jesus’ death and resurrection a new and living way to live your best life ever was opened for everyone. Through His death and resurrection, Jesus purchased all you will ever need to live your best life here on earth. 2 Peter 1:3 said that God’s divine power has already given you all you need for life and Godliness. It is important you have this mindset if you are a Christian. Because when you walk with God, the problem is never with God giving you but with you receiving what God has already given you. You are (Already) Blessed! Period. I want to stress this again. If you are a Christian you should develop and live your life with the mindset that you already have all that you need to live and enjoy life. If you always think and talk lack, lack will be your daily experience. But if you acknowledge the fact that God has already provided all you will ever need in life abundantly and you talk from that perspective, you will be set to receive everything that God has already prepared for you. Today on BotROCK we will be discussing 2 basic things you need to do in order to receive anything from God, be it healing, finances, promotion, or even a spouse. But before I delve into that, I want to remind you that Enugu Faith Seminar with Pastor ‘Poju Oyemade is only 16 days away. In this event you will experience a definite encounter with God that will change your destiny forever. Date again is Friday 15th April by 5pm prompt. Venue is TCC Tent, Akachukwu Springs, Enugu Onitsha expressway, just at the foot of the Trans-Ekulu flyover after CBN bus-stop (Here is a free direction map guide). I encourage you to come early to catch a good seat. There will also be a Special session for Pastors and Ministers. If you are a Pastor of a Church or you run

#134: Celebrate Easter because it’s a Good Friday Indeed!
On this edition of BotROCK | Building on the ROCK with Pastor Murphy: Featured Artist: Chris Tomlin Song Title: Jesus My Redeemer Scripture: Romans 4:25 Easter: The Passion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ This weekend marks the most memorable events in the history of the world. From today to Sunday we will be remembering the passion and resurrection of Jesus the son of God. What actually comes to your mind during this period? Growing up I had the notion that from today to Saturday is a period of mourning. Logically it made sense to me then, at least it was for my sake Jesus went through such a gruesome experience. 3 invaluable Free Gifts from Jesus this Easter However when I gave my life to Jesus and started understanding the import of this weekend, I can say that this passion weekend has become the most joyous celebration of the year. And interestingly for that same reason; it was for my sake that Jesus went through that gruesome experience. Wow! I just feel like shouting right now. But I will keep cool, because I want to share with you 3 things that Jesus achieved for you through His death and resurrection. These things are not an intellectual discourse or nor is it even theological. They are practical realities that are available to every single person in this world including the killer, rapist and the Boko haram guys. Because Jesus purchased it for every single person that has ever lived or will ever live on this earth. Before I go on, The Enugu Faith Seminar with Pastor Poju Oyemade is fast approaching. It’s exactly 21 days away. This is a destiny changing event that will lunch you into a season of acceleration in your life. After this event there will be a positive shift in your life and in Enugu as a whole, so plan to attend. It’s on the 15th of April, by 5pm prompt. The venue is TCC Tent, Akachukwu Spring, Enugu-Onitsha expressway just at the foot of the Trans Ekulu Flyover. 1. Jesus gave you FREE Access to God Almighty One thing I always thank God for is the death and resurrection of Jesus because it purchased for me everything I will ever need in life for free. One of the most important things that Jesus achieved for every single person including you listening to me is access to the most influential personality in

#133: Learn How to Depend on God Your Great Provider
On this edition of BotROCK | Building on the ROCK with Pastor Murphy: Featured Artist: Toby Mac Song Title: Thankful For You Scripture: Philippians 4:19 Develop Your Confidence in God One of my favorite scriptures that gives me the confidence that no matter the circumstances or the state of the economy, I will always have my needs met, is 2 Corinthians 9:8 which says God is able to make all grace abound towards me that in all things and at all times I will always have all that I need. God is not just able to do this, He is always willing to provide all your needs and even more than your needs. Last week on Building on the ROCK with Pastor Murphy or BotROCK, we started discussing the simple steps that you need to take in other to experience God as your great provider. Today we will be continuing in that line of thought. I believe that God wants you to live a life completely free of worry, especially for your sustenance and wellbeing. Jesus said do not worry saying, what shall I eat, drink or wear. You can also extrapolate that to where shall I live or how shall I move around. As a Christian, you should not worry a bit about these things because your heavenly father who is the great provider knows that you need them. And as we said last week, He provided these things even before you knew you needed them. However there are some things you need to do to actually experience the provision of God in your life. Last week we mentioned 2. The first is that you have to make Jesus your shepherd and obediently follow His directions in the scriptures. Secondly we said you have to get rid of selfishness and be a generous giver. Today we will be looking at two other things that are equally as important. But before I go on, I wish to warmly invite for an event that will change your destiny forever. It is the Enugu Faith Seminar with Pastor Poju Oyemade, Senior Pastor Covenant Christian Centre Lagos. I can assure you of one thing, attending this event will grant you exceptional grace for acceleration in your life, career, business and ministry. The Date is Frida
