ANY CALL TO GOD WITHOUT THANKSGIVING IS A PROTEST
WHEN YOU ARE GRATEFUL YOU WILL BE JOYFUL. WHEN YOU’RE JOYFUL YOU WILL BECOME PRAISE FULL AND WHEN YOU’RE PRAISE FULL YOU BECOME GOD FULL AND WHEN YOU’RE GOD FULL YOU BECOME WONDERFUL.


AFTER EVERY ACT FROM GOD, HE WAITS ON THE OTHER SIDE FOR AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FROM YOU.


IF YOU FORGET HIS BENEFITS, HE ALSO FORGETS YOUR WELFARE.
TO KEEP GAINING ALTITUDE, GRATITUDE MUST BECOME YOUR WAY OF LIFE.


-Pastor Salem Samson at Salvation Ministries Home of Success| First Service.


Today is the special Thanksgiving service, God has been faithful to us throughout the Glory Reign, God has been faithful and today we will be thanking God specially. Psalm 92:1-2. The Bible says it is a good thing to give thanks to God. So, for God’s faithfulness that we saw during the Glory Reign 2022, we have come to say Father we are grateful.
Praise God!
Papa said it is a bad thing when you don’t thank God for all what he has done and for his goodness. It is a bad thing when you don’t thank God. The Bible says it is a good thing to give thanks.

What is Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is the act of appreciation, it is appreciating God for his goodness.
Thanksgiving is showing appreciation and being grateful for the good things that God has done for us.

It is showing appreciation and being grateful for the good things that God has done for us.
As we thank God in this service, whatever blessing that follows thanksgiving will be released on someone’s life in the mighty name of Jesus.

Now, the truth is that thanksgiving is not optional. Thanksgiving is a command. Malachi 2:1-2. All our testimony will not be corrupted in the name of Jesus.
This commandment is for you oh ye priests, that is why we have come here today to give thanks to God and I believe that as we thank God today all our blessings will be preserved in the mighty name of Jesus.
Thanksgiving is a vow that we owe God and we must pay.

Psalm 50:14. Papa said thanksgiving is an application for more. As we thank God in this service God will do greater things in Salvation Ministries in the mighty name of Jesus. Thanksgiving makes God keep giving and to do more. Psalm 95:2. God cannot refuse a person who is appreciative of his acts, faithfulness and grace. God always shows up for a thanksgiver.
Thanksgiving is God’s hotline. You know influential people have a lot of lines but they have a specific hotline.

The hotline of God is Thanksgiving. When you understand the mystery of thanksgiving then you have direct access to God’s hotline. Psalm 100:4. Any call to God without thanksgiving is a protest. Any prayer not wrapped with thanksgiving is a protest call to God.

The secret of Salvation Ministries is thanksgiving, from the inception we have been thanking God. From the inception of this Ministry we have been thanking God and I came to meet thanksgiving. After every service we thank God, after every program we thank God and after every major program we thank God. Midweek service we thank God.
Praise God!
The secret behind Salvation Ministries is thanksgiving. That is why the Ministry has never known a better yesterday. As you thank God in this service you will never know a better yesterday in the mighty name of Jesus. You will never know dryness or scarcity in the mighty name of Jesus.

Thanksgiving is the way to make things happen. When you are grateful you will be joyful. When you’re joyful you will become praise full and when you’re praise full you become God full and when you’re God full you become wonderful.

Thanksgiving is one of the major secrets of life. Papa said thanksgiving is the cheapest way to live because it adds colour to your Christian experience and flavour to your Christian nature. 1st Thessalonians 5:18. The will of God is that no matter where you are in life you should give him thanks.

The will of God is that you should give him thanks at all times and when you do God’s will you will seek God’s attention. As we thank him in today’s service we will secure his attention in the name of Jesus. Don’t let anything pass without a thanksgiving response from you to God. Luke 17:12-19. Now, there were 10 of them, 9 of them were familiar with Jesus.

They felt that it was their right to be healed so they did not return to give God praise.

But this strange Samaritan knew that it was not his right, it was an act of God’s mercy and so he returned and gave God thanks and he was made whole. As we thank God today everything that concerns Salvation Ministries will be made whole today.

So, after every act from God he waits on the other side for an acknowledgement from you. God keeps record of our activities and every act of God that is not acknowledged disqualifies from receiving further blessing .

That will not be our portion in Jesus name.
Perfection is obtained through thanksgiving, the others were cleansed but the only one that gave thanks to God was made whole. During the Glory Reign 2022, we saw the Hand of God raw on display.

There were supernatural victories and open doors, global announcement, great gathering of multitudes, mass harvest of souls and smooth transmission throughout the program. Everything went smoothly. Incredible miracle and confirmation of God’s word, he was giving his servant David Ibiyeomie the right word on a daily basis. He also granted him supernatural strength, everyone that came for the program went back safely. All these things are the acts of God. We did not appoint police to make sure everybody gets to their home safely. No sir. It is the act of God and that is why today we must say Father we thank you.
Praise God!


At every turn of event learn to say thank you. The most outstanding miracle of Jesus manifested on the platform of thanksgiving. John 6:6-12. Even Jesus the messiah had a challenge and thanksgiving was the way out, he thanked God for what was not sufficient and it became over sufficient, as we thank God today everything remaining in our lives will be perfected in the name of Jesus.
John 11:39-44. In this thanksgiving service today whatever has died in your life, today it will gain life in the mighty name of Jesus.
Wherever you have been bound you will be set free in the name of Jesus.
Everything that is not of God will drop off in the mighty name of Jesus.
1st Peter 3:13, Psalm 92:9. When you follow good no evil thing will come near us in the mighty name of Jesus.

Psalm 103:1-5. During this period of Glory Reign incredible miracles manifested, the hand of God was stretched out to touch everyone.

Everyone had an encounter, after this service your own encounter will manifest in the name of Jesus.

Never forget his benefits, to forget his benefit is to provoke him to anger. It is to grieve him. If you forget his benefits, he also forgets your welfare. Your needs remain your need when you forget God’s benefit but we will not forget it in Jesus name.

Don’t let your need blind you always take thought of God’s blessing and goodness. Don’t allow your need to blind you, a song writer said: count your blessings, name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done.
Praise God!
If you cannot see what God has done, you will stop him from doing more.

When you give thanks to God for the things that he has done you remind him of the things you do not have. What you do to God determines what he does to you. Learn to focus on past acts of God to get your present needs met.

WHY MUST WE THANK GOD

1) It is a commandment. Malachi 2:1-2. We are commanded to give God thanks otherwise we will come under God’s curse. We won’t come under curse in Jesus name.
2) It is the will of God. 1st Thessalonians 5:18.
God’s will is that we should give him thanks.
Your prayers minus thanksgiving equal to protest.
3) It shows that God is our source. Every man goes to acknowledge his source.

In the negative you will notice that when some people want something or after they get some victory they go to acknowledge their source.

So, as children of God we should acknowledge our source. Psalm 72:18. Everything we have seen is an act of God. James 1:17. God is the source of our supplies and thanksgiving shows that we depend on God.

4) To show that we are receivers and not achievers. 1st Corinthians 4:7. There is no self made man, we are all made by God. Your life, health, money and everything that you have is from God. 1st Corinthians 15::10.

Paul did not count his labour. Nebuchadnezzar was thinking that he was great. He said this is the Kingdom my hand hath built and he went on a sabbatical leave for 7 years. That will not be our portion in Jesus name.

5) To express how much we value God’s goodness towards us. Daniel 2:23.
6) Go qualify for God’s next blessing. Luke 17: 12-19.
Praise God!
So, as we thank God in this service we will qualify for God’s next blessing in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

BENEFITS OF THANKSGIVING

1) Thanksgiving secures God’s attention. Philippians 4:6. No man’s prayer will be able to reach God except it is wrapped in thanksgiving. Thanksgiving creates an atmosphere for God to step in, it secures God’s attention.

You can have access to God except you are granted access when you thank him. Psalm 100:4. Papa said: To keep gaining altitude, gratitude must become your way of life. It is only men and women of gratitude that hears from God.
2) You enjoy supernatural supply. Psalm 67:5-6.

So, God will only empower you to God only when you’re grateful to God for what he has done. Nothing about you will multiply except you give God praise. John 6, As we thank God today, everything that has to do with Salvation Ministries, everything that has to do with God’s servant Pastor David Ibiyeomie and families, everything that has to do with your own life will experience supernatural multiplication in the mighty name of Jesus.

3) Thanksgiving guarantees fulfilment of prophecy. Romans 4:17-21. Luke 1:45.

Hallelujah! God will visit us today in the mighty name of Jesus.

So, we will thank God for his faithfulness in this 1st service, especially for his faithfulness to Salvation Ministries.
