ONE OF THE MOST SCARCE VIRTUES IN THE EARTH TODAY IS THE VIRTUE OF THANKSGIVING
UNTHANKFULNESS AND INGRATITUDE IS A SIGN OF THE ENDTIME
PEOPLE THINK THEY CAN FARE WELL WITHOUT GOD BUT THAT IS THE LIE OF THE devil
THANKSGIVING GIVES US THE ACCESS TO EXPERIENCE THE GOODNESS OF GOD
EVERYTHING MULTIPLIES AROUND THE LIFE OF THE GRATEFUL
THANKSGIVING TO GOD WILL ESTABLISH IN YOU THE GLORY AND DELETE THE SHAME
– Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche on “THE VALUE OF THANKSGIVING” || First Sunday Service || Glory Dome – Abuja.
Lift your hands and let’s worship Him and adore Him. Father, we give you the praise, the honour and the adoration. Thank you Master, thank you Adonai.
We worship you, we honour you, be thou glorified in Jesus’ Precious name.
– someone give the Lord a big clap and a shout of praise.
Psalm 92:1-2. This morning, I want to speak very briefly on the Value of Thanksgiving. Our objective is to understand both the value and the virtue of Thanksgiving.
One of the most scarce virtues in the earth today is the virtue of Thanksgiving and it is a sign of the endtime. 2 Timothy 3:1-2. Unthankfulness, ingratitude is a sign of the endtime.
God is doing things for people, they’re not thanking, wives are doing things for husbands, they’re not thanking, husbands are doing things for wives, it doesn’t matter, parents are doing things for children, no appreciation, “it’s my right for him to pay my school fees and to give me my pocket money”, children are doing things for parents, no appreciation, “he’s my child, he’s meant to do that”.
It’s a plague of the last days and many people as we have said many things take this thing before God. The question is, why is unthankfulness such a challenge especially towards the endtime? Why is there so much problem with inability to say thank you to God? I gave four reasons, now, I will give two in this service.
1. It’s an agenda of the devil to rob people of the value and virtue of Thanksgiving because we know that the devil is the thief that comes to steal, kill and destroy. John 10:10.
2. It is the plague of human self-sufficiency and independence of God that is characteristic of the endtime. Where human beings behave like they can do without God. “They shall be lovers of themselves, they shall be ungrateful”. 2 Timothy 3:2. Where people think that without God they can do and survive, they can fare well without God but that is the lie of the devil.
What value does Thanksgiving hold? What virtue does thanksgiving hold?
1. Thanksgiving grants access to good. Psalm 92:1. Thanksgiving gives us the access to experience the goodness of God.
2. Thanksgiving provokes the unction for multiplication. Everything multiplies around the life of the grateful. Jeremiah 30:19-22.
3. Thanksgiving is a way of glorification. “and I will glorify them and they shall not be small”. The meaning of that is your Thanksgiving to God will establish in you the glory and delete the shame. It will establish God’s glory in your life and delete or wipe out the shame. Jeremiah 30:19.
