HOW SACRIFICES HELPS YOU BREAK THROUGH WITH EASE.


What is sacrifice? 

Sacrifice means giving something that is dear to you to God for worship or thanksgiving. 

We offer various forms of sacrifice to God, including our money/properties, our time, our bodies, and our love.

There were many famous people in the Bible who sacrificed to the Lord and God blessed them. Every sacrifice is costly because what you will offer is always dear to you, but you will do it for the sake of your love for the Lord. When you go before the Lord with your sacrifices, you do not return the same if the sacrifices were from your heart and were very dear to you.

Let us learn from these characters who offered sacrifices to the Lord and discover what the Lord did for them.

CORNELIUS GAVE HIMSELF TO PRAYER AND GIVING OF ARMS. 

We Christians believe that Cornelius was the first Gentile to become a Christian and receive the Holy Spirit along with his household.

Easy-to-Read Version Acts 10:1-5  In the city of Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a Roman army officer in what was called the Italian Unit. He was a religious man. He and all the others who lived in his house were worshipers of the true God. He gave much of his money to help the poor people and always prayed to God. One afternoon about three o’clock, Cornelius had a vision. He clearly saw an angel from God coming to him and saying, “Cornelius!” Staring at the angel and feeling afraid, Cornelius said, “What do you want, sir?” The angel said to him, “God has heard your prayers and has seen your gifts to the poor. He remembers you and all you have done. Send some men now to the city of Joppa to get a man named Simon, who is also called Peter.



Cornelius' story is inspiring and full of mysteries.

Because of his sacrifices, he encountered an angel of the Lord. With his family members, he was a man of prayer. It will be difficult for you to see a Roman from Italy at that time worshiping God and thus having God dearly in his heart, as well as believing in Jesus.

He offered up his time for the Lord, which is one of the things you can do for the Lord , and he also gave arms

He was constantly doing this with family members, which earned him that type of experience.

How many Christians encounter Jesus or angels because they give to the poor or devote their time to prayer on a regular basis?

This man's heart opened before the Lord and this touched the heart of the Lord. 

If you really want to touch heaven for breakthrough, don't leave your prayer life somewhere, you must be an intercessor and this will earn you a great reward from God day by day.

SOLOMON SACRIFICE UNTO THE LORD AND WHAT HAPPENED AFTER.

Easy-to-Read Version 1 Kings 3:4-13 King Solomon went to Gibeon to offer a sacrifice because that was the most important high place. He offered a thousand burnt offerings on that altar. While Solomon was at Gibeon, the Lord came to him at night in a dream. God said, “Solomon, ask me what you want me to give you.” Solomon answered, “You were very kind and loyal to your servant, my father David. He was faithful to you and lived a good, honest life. And you showed him the greatest kindness when you let his son take his place as king. Lord my God, you have made me the king in my father’s place, but I am like a small child. I don’t have the wisdom I need to do what I must do. I am your servant here among your chosen people. There are so many that they cannot be counted. So I ask you to give me the wisdom to rule and judge them well and to help me know the difference between right and wrong. Without such great wisdom, it would be impossible to rule this great nation.” The Lord was happy that Solomon asked for wisdom. So God said to him, “You did not ask for long life and riches for yourself. You did not ask for the death of your enemies. You asked for the wisdom to listen and make the right decisions. So I will give you what you asked for. I will make you wise and intelligent. I will make you wiser than anyone who ever lived or ever will live. And I will also give you what you did not ask for. You will have riches and honor all your life. There will be no other king in the world as great as you.

By sacrificing everything to Him, you will encounter the Lord's goodness.

He made Solomon a great man and also gave him wisdom, which no other king had. There are certain things of the spirit which are purchased with sacrifices and not only prayer. He went to the Lord and made a large sacrifice on the alter. If you truly want to enter this dimension, you must make a sacrifice to God in your church. Church is an important place where we can sacrifice to the Lord.

You can find a ministry whether Evangelistic or a missions ministry and offer unto the Lord with a kind of offering that can move you and you shall be great.

God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac to Him as a test, but you could see for this one Abraham was really moved despite all the sacrifices he had offered to the Lord, but through obedience and faith, he met the Lord at the place of sacrifice. He was fortunate to see a lamb, which represents a significant movement in the Bible.

GENESIS 22:9-

SACRIFICING YOUR BODY UNTO THE LORD. 

This is another way we offer sacrifices to the Lord. This offering is first and foremost significant and significant in that it allows you to experience the vastness of God.

Giving your body as a sacrifice to the Lord means giving your body as a vessel for honor through holiness.

When you keep your body free from immorality, the Lord bestows greatness on you, and you will succeed in whatever you do.

Easy-to-Read Version Romans 12:1-2 So I beg you, brothers and sisters, because of the great mercy God has shown us, offer your lives as a living sacrifice to him—an offering that is only for God and pleasing to him. Considering what he has done, it is only right that you should worship him in this way. Don’t change yourselves to be like the people of this world, but let God change you inside with a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to understand and accept what God wants for you. You will be able to know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect.

This is a very great way we sacrifice unto the Lord and it brings a lot of blessings unto our lives. 

We become great when we present our bodies as vessels of honor. 


JOSEPH AND MARRY GAVE THEMSELVES AS A VESSEL OF HONOR UNTO THE LORD AND THEY BECAME VERY GREAT PERSONALITIES IN THE BIBLE

When Joseph refused the offer made by Potiphar's wife, it pleased the Lord, and as a result, the Lord promoted him.

He avoided fornication and immorality, remained holy to the Lord, and the Lord bestowed a great favor upon him despite all the evil they plotted against him.

Perhaps you are sacrificing other great things to the Lord, but you are not seeing great dimensions; if you are not sacrificing your body, I urge you to do so, and you will be a blessing in your generation.

Do you need breakthrough in the family? 

You shouldn't forget offering is one of the great acts you can do to bring heaven down to yourself and your family.

Easy-to-Read Version 2 Timothy 2:20-22 In a large house there are things made of gold and silver. But there are also things made of wood and clay. Some of these are used for special purposes, others for ordinary jobs. The Lord wants to use you for special purposes, so make yourself clean from all evil. Then you will be holy, and the Master can use you. You will be ready for any good work. Stay away from the evil things a young person like you typically wants to do. Do your best to live right and to have faith, love, and peace, together with others who trust in the Lord with pure hearts.
