TOTAL, NOT PARTIAL!

Prophet T.B. Joshua

“To many, God is one of those things; that is, God is one of the things that are important to them. So they place God as equal to or lower than other considerations. Money, position, power, social relations, comfort, pleasure, traditional/ cultural beliefs – God is one of those things to them. What I am saying here is that, if any of these conflicts with their loyalty towards God, they are likely to be indifferent; I mean, sit on the fence. That is, any of these can affect their relationship with God, can stop them from praying or make them pray the more.

As for me, God is the only thing. God is the only reason. If God is the only reason, your commitment to Him would be total but if God is one of those things, your commitment to Him would be partial. Joshua said to his people, ‘As for me and my household, the only reason is God. Therefore, my commitment to Him is total, not partial’.

Like Joshua of old, I am putting it to you this day to choose what you make of God. Is He one of those things in your life or the only reason? Remember, if you make Him one of those things in your life, your commitment to Him would be partial. If you choose to make Him the only reason in your life, your commitment to Him would be total.

This is what Jesus instructed in Matthew 22:37, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” When can a man be said to do this? When are you said to do this? That is when you love nothing in comparison of Him but in reference to Him alone. I mean, in readiness to give up, do or suffer anything in order to glorify or please Him. When you are ready to sacrifice your time, body, health and comfort – I mean, every good thing the Lord has given you – for the honour of God, this means you have made Him the only reason in your life. If you choose to make Him the only reason, your commitment to Him would be total, not partial.” – T.B. Joshua

One thought on “TOTAL, NOT PARTIAL!

  1. I Will DRAW NEAR TO THE LOVING GOD ALMIGHTY WITH A SINCERE HEART IN FULL ASSURANCE OF FAITH
    Mathew 1:18-25 18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband being a just a man and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20 But while he thought about these things, behold an angel of the Lord appeared to Him in dream saying. Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son and you shall call His name Jesus. For He will save His people from their sins. 22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet saying. 23 Behold the virgin shall be with child and bear a Son and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated “God with us” The Holy Bible is advising us that This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah happened. His mother Mary was engaged to marry Joseph. But before they married he learned that she was expecting a baby. (She was pregnant by the power of the Holy Spirit) Mary’s husband, Joseph was a good man. He did not want to cause her public disgrace, so he planned her to divorce her secretly. But after Joseph thought about this an angel from the Lord came to Him in dream. The angel said “Joseph son of David, don’t be afraid to accept Mary to be your wife. The baby inside her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a Son. You will call Him Jesus. Give Him that name because He will save His people from their sins. All this happened to make clear the full meaning of what the Lord said through the prophet. The virgin will be pregnant and will give birth to a Son. They will name Him Immanuel (Immanuel means God with us)
    I will draw near to the loving God Almighty with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith. He is our loving Father and faithful Heavenly Father. We were created by Him and for Him and We live for Him. He will give you the desires of your heart and make all your plans succeed according to His will. He will give you success in everything you do according to His will. He will grant you abundant prosperity in every area of your life. He will make you the head, you shall be above only and not beneath. He will richly provide you with everything for your enjoyment. He will satisfy your desires with good things. He protect’s His faithful children. He keeps your lamp burning. He keeps your light shining. He will give you both riches and honor so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among leaders. The loving God Almighty so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son. That whoever believes in Him will have eternal life. The loving God Almighty did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. If God is with you who can be against you. He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all – how will He not also with Him give us all things. In the Book of Isaiah 7:13-14 13 Then he said. Hear now O house of David. Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also. 14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign. Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son and shall call His name Immanuel. We are advised the prophet Isaiah said to David. Family of David listen very carefully is it not enough that you would test the patience of my God. But the Lord will still show you this sign. The young woman is pregnant and will give birth to a Son. She will name Him Immanuel. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will never stop doing good to His children. No good thing does He withhold from His children. He gives generously good things to His children. He is abounding in love to a thousand generations. He is good and abounding in love. He is wonderful good. He is the high priest of good things. He will fill you with an inexpressible and glorious joy. He will never leave you, forget you or forsake you. You were bought at a precious and special price.
    I want to use this opportunity to thank the loving God Almighty for assisting us to solve our problems. Thank you for your mercy and favor. Thank you for your lovingkindness. Thank you for what you have done for us. Well done. I appreciate your good work. I bless and glorify your wonderful name. I want to use this opportunity to thank the leaders, the women of God and men of God, the children of God from Nigeria, from United Kingdom, from United States of America, from China, from South Africa, from Zimbabwe and children of God from other countries. Thank you for your mercy and favor. Thank you for your lovingkindness. Thank you for what you have done for me. Well done. The loving God Almighty and myself appreciates your good work. He will richly reward you. A good family brings good things out of the good stored up in them. The faithful God Almighty will richly bless you and your family with all of God’s blessings. He will fill your houses with His glory. He will fill Nigeria, United Kingdom, United States of America, China, South Africa, Zimbabwe and other countries with His glory. He will give you and your family a happy and good health long life. He will lavish you and your family with His love. He will enlarge your territory as He promised. He will bless the crops of your land, your grain, the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks. He will increase you a thousand times more and bless you as He promised. He will give you more than you need so that you will always have all you need for yourselves and more than enough for every good cause. He will fulfill all He has planned for you. He will thoroughly equip you for every good work. The faithful God Almighty is not unjust. He will not forget your good work and the love you have shown Him as your have helped His children and continue to help them. You are God’s fellow workers, you are God’s field and God’s building. You are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works which the good Lord Almighty prepared in advance for you to do. By their fruit you will recognize them. Since you are children of God. Then you are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Jesus Christ because you share in His glory. You are the people of His inheritance an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade kept in heaven for you. Our friend Lord Jesus Christ chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit – fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in His name.
    In the Book of Luke 1:11-19 11 Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing on the right side of the altar of incense. 12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled and fear fell upon him. 13 But the angel said to him. Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son and you shall call his name John. 14 And you will have joy and gladness and many will rejoice at his birth. 15 For he will be great in the sight of the Lord and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb. 16 And he will turn many of children of Israel to the Lord their God. 17 He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. 18 And Zacharias said to the angel. How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years. 19 And the angel answered and said to him. I am Gabriel who stands in the presence of God and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings. We are advised that: An angel of the Most High God appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense. When Zachariah saw him he was startled and was gripped with fear. But the angel said to him. Do not be afraid, Zachariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son and you are to give him the name John. He will be a joy and delight to you and many will rejoice because of his birth. For he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from birth. Many people will be brought back to the glorious Lord their God. And he will go on before the Lord in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous to make ready the children of God prepared for the Lord. Zachariah asked the angel. How can I be sure of this? I am an old man and my wife is well on in years. The angel answered. I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news. The gracious God Almighty will do exceedingly abundantly above all that you ask or think according to the power that is at work within you. He will supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. He will show you and give you His incomparable riches of His grace. He will richly bless the fruit of your womb with all of God’s blessings.
    In the Book of Genesis 41:50-52 50 And to Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came, whom Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bore to him. 51 Joseph called the name of firstborn Manasseh. For God has made me forget all my toil and all my father’s house. 52 And the name of the second he called Ephraim. For God has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction. We are advised that: Joseph’s wife, Asenath, was the daughter of Potiphera, the priest in the city of On. Before the first year of hunger came, Joseph and Asenath had two sons. Joseph named the first son Manasseh. He was given this name because Joseph said, God made me forget all my hard work and everything back home in my father’s house. Joseph named the second son Ephraim, Joseph gave him this name because he said I had great troubles, but God has made me successful in everything. The faithful God Almighty will give you success in whatever you do according to His will. He will make your heart be glad and joyful in His love and He will take care of you. He will protect you and keep you and your family away from harm and watch over your life. He will strengthen you, help you and uphold you with His righteous right hand.
    In the Book of Genesis 48:3-6 3 Then Jacob said to Joseph God Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan and blessed me. 4 And said to me. Behold I will make you fruitful and multiply you and I will make of you a multitude of people and give this land to your descendants after you as an everlasting possession. 5 and now your two sons Ephraim and Manasseh who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you in Egypt are mine as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine. 6 Your offspring whom you beget after them shall be yours they will be called by the name of their brothers in their inheritance. We area advised that: Israel said to Joseph “God All-Powerful appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan. The gracious God Almighty blessed him there. He said to him. I will make you great family. I will give you many children and you will be a great people. Your family will own this land forever. Now you have two sons. These two sons were born in Egypt before he came. Your two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh will be like my own sons. They will be like Reuben and Simon to me. They will share in everything I own. The gracious God Almighty will bless you when you come in and He will bless you when you go out. He will bless you in the city and He will bless you in the country.
    In the Book of Ezekiel 37:25-27 25 Then they shall dwell in the land that i have given to Jacob My servant, where your fathers dwelt and they shall dwell there, they, their children and their children’s children forever. and My servant David shall be their prince forever. 26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them. I will establish them and multiply them and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. 27 My tabernacle also shall be with them; indeed I will be their God and they shall be My people. We are advised that: The children of God shall dwell in the land. We are advised that the good Lord Almighty said that: They will leave on the land that I gave to my servant Jacob. Your ancestors lived in that place and my people will live there. They and their children and their grandchildren will live there forever. And I will make a peace agreement with them. This agreement will continue forever. I agree to give them their land. I agree to make them numerous and to put my holy place among them forever. My Holy Tent will be with them. Yes, I will be their God and they will be My people.
    The glory of the Lord Almighty. In the Book of Ezekiel 1:4-5,22-28 4-5 22 4 Then I looked and behold a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. 5 Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of man. 22 The likeness of the firmament above the heads of the living creatures was like the color of an awesome crystal stretched out over their heads. 23 And under the firmament their wings spread out straight one toward another. Each one had two which covered one side and each one had two which covered the other side of the body. 24 When they went I heard the noise of the wings, like the noise of many waters, like the voice of the Almighty, a tumult like the noise of an army and when they stood still they let down their wings. 25 A voice came from above the firmament that was over their heads whenever they stood they let down their wings. 26 And above the firmament over their heads was likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire stone, on the likeness of the throne was a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it. 27 Also from the appearance of His waist and upward I saw as it were the color of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it. and from the appearance His waist and downward I saw as it were the appearance of fire with brightness all around. 28 Like the appearance of rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. So when I saw it. I fell on my face and I heard a voice of One speaking. We are advised that: The child of God was watching and a big storm come in from the north. It was a big cloud with a strong wind and there was fire flashing from it. Light was shining out all around it. It looked like hot metal glowing in a fire. Inside the cloud there were four living beings that looked like people. There was an amazing thing over the heads of the living beings. It was like a bowel turned upside down and the bowel was clear like crystal. Under this bowel was clear like crystal. Under this bowel each living being had wings reaching out to the next to it. Two wings spread out one way and two wings spread out one way and two wings spread out the other way covering the body. Then I heard the wings. Every time the living beings moved their wings made a very loud noise like a lot of water rushing by. They were loud like the Lord All-Powerful. They were as loud as an army on a crowd of people. When the living beings stopped moving, they put their wings down by their side. The living beings stopped moving and lowered their wings. Then there was another loud sound that came from above the bowl over their heads. There was something that looked like a throne on top of the bowl. It was blue like sapphire. There was also something that looked like a man sitting on the throne. I looked at him from his waist up. He looked like hot metal with fire all around Him. I looked at him from his waist down. It looked like fire with a glow that was shining all around him. The light shining around him was like a rainbow in a cloud. It was the Glory of the Lord. As soon as I saw that I fell to the ground. I bowed with my face to the ground and then I heard a voice speaking to me. The beautiful God Almighty is glorious and He is wonderful. The glorious God Almighty will teach you what is the best for you and direct the way you should go. He will lavish you with the riches of His grace and He will lavish you with wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
    In the Book of Joshua 1:5-9 5 No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. 6 Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law, which Moses My servant commanded you, do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth but you shall meditate in it day and night that you observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous and then you will have good success. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage, do not be afraid nor dismayed for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. We are advised that the faithful God Almighty was advising His child Joshua. He said that: Just as i was with Moses, I will be with you. No one will be able to stop you all your life. I will not abandon you, I will never leave you. Joshua you must be strong and brave. You must lead these people so that they can take their land I promised their fathers that I would give them this land. But you must be strong and brave about obeying the command my servant Moses gave you. If you follow his teachings you will be successful in everything you do. Always remember what is written in that Book of Law. Speak about the Book and study it day and night. Then you can be sure to obey what is written there. If you do this you will be wise, prosperous in every area of your life and be successful in everything you do according to His will. Be strong and courageous. Don’t be afraid, because the glorious Lord Almighty your God will be with you wherever you go. The faithful God Almighty will give you a wise and discerning heart so that there will never have been anyone like you nor will there ever be. He will protect you and keep you and your family away from harm and watch over your life. You can do all things through Christ who gives you strength.
    May the grace of the Lord and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit and the love of Christ be with the leaders, be with the women of God and men of God, be with the children of God from Nigeria, United States of America, China, South Africa, Zimbabwe and from other countries now and forever. In the name of Jesus Christ.
