JOANAH’S RADIO BROADCASTS
RADIO PROGRAMME FOR SATURDAY JUNE 6TH 1987.
Let us pray our father Almighty God, we hallow thy name and pray you that for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ. Your beloved son, who you gave us because of your love, let thy kingdom come to Nigeria, so that all Nigerians will do your will in this earth as it is done in heaven. Give us this day and also the days of our lifes our daily bread and forgive us our sins, and help to make it possible for us to forgive our neighbour that sin against us, save us from temptation and evil, for whether we like it or not thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory even for ever and ever.
My fellow co-citizens, may the peace and grace of our God through Jesus Christ abide with you for ever. This evening, we want to talk about what we really need to do and what not to do, so that we may prosper. People who live and are blessed will need to continue to enjoy their blessed life for a long time, and those who are less fortunate want to be fortunate.
When God created human being he laid the principles and guideline to prosperity and without following there will no be prosperity or if there seem to be, it is not from God, so it will soon disappear. We shall read same of the guide lines. The root is righteousness, the tree is love, the branches are faith in the truth of God, the fruits are good works
In the Book of Psalm chapter 1:1-end.
1. “Blessed is the one that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful
2. But his delight is in the law of the Lord
3. and in his law does he meditate day and night. And he/she shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth its fruit in its season
His leaves also shall not weather, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way for the righteous. But the way of the ungodly shall perish:
In the book of prophet Jeremiah, the Lord God sent him to people that “Blessed is the one that trusted in the Lord and whose hope the Lord is.
For He shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth our her roots by the water, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be touched in the year of the drought neither shall cease from yeilding furit” Jeremiah 17:7-8. in verses 5-6. Thus saith the Lord …….. read
Then Jeremiah 18:1-18; Jer. 17:9-10
Now the Lord says call upon me in the day of trouble and I will answer thee and will show great and terrible things. When Israelites were in trouble they called upon God Exod. 14:10-13
When Jacob was in great trouble, God told him what to do, he obeyed and he was blessed Gen. 34:30; Gen. 35:1-3, 7, 9-15.
Jesus saith in John 11:40, John 13:31-35, John 15: 1-4; Matt. 5:1-10.
We must make God our shield and power and accept his best gift to us, His only begotten Son and call Him for help that we always obey and serve Him for His peace and prosperity to be our own, and we shall prosper for ever. No other way, let us pray. In the name of Jesus, Jesus please our Lord and Saviour, please save us, bring us to God to give us peace and prosperity which will pour upon us all, so we can all enjoy it. The national cake will be shared with love among every Nigerians both rich and poor, then it will increase and our sorrow will be turned to joy, shame to glory, we shall be transferred from backwardness to become progressives. Deut. 28: 1-2; 7-12. Please save us from suffering and shame bring back to us your abundant life, peace, blessing and success.
RADIO BROADCAST FOR FEB 25 1990
Come unto me ye that labour and heavy laden and I will give you rest- Matt 11:28-30.
Many mountains, i.e. problems are in the lifes of many. Why do you have problem because since Satan has deceived many to obey Satan rather than obey God he Satan has seized the key of the authority over the world, given by God to man, and Satan has had set up his rule over sinners.
Since then he uses human being as his servants instead of being God’s servants
Why- because God had decreed that He that committed sin is of the devil etc- I John 3: 8-9; I John 1:9; I Cor 15:21; Rom 3:23a; Rom 6:23a
Now through Christ, God with His love has provided a way out. See I Cor 15:22, Rom 3:16-18, 36a, Rom 3:23b; Rom 6:23b, I Cor 15:23-28.
That’s why Jesus with authority God gave to Him (Matt 28:18) came to invite you and me. Come unto me (Matt 11: 28-30)
And it is written that He is able to cool our thirst, every sufferer is thirsty of something- Peace, blessing, wisdom, knowledge, freedom, love, joy. John 7:37
It is written- Heb 3:4-14, John 3:36b
Light – he brings light John 8:12
He is the only Good Shepherd- John 10:11, 14-15, 26-30
He is the only door to God John- 10:2, 7,9
Compare the Tares with the Good seeds (Matt 13:36-43
Come to Him accept His call. Simon accepted his call, his life was changed from suffering to abundant life, from slavery to prince -Rev 3:10, Rev 5:9-10. Please pray to Jesus to take over the authority of your life from Satan and give it back to God who has been the owner from the beginning.
Prayer: Please help your people to believe and accept your truth and save them from the devil and his destruction.
LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR AS YOURSELF
For 2nd February 1990.
Love means affection for one another
God our Creator is love- I John 4:8
His word says love one another I John 4:7
For how long: Heb 13:1 as long as we live
If God who created us in love, because we are his image and likeness, we too should love.
Love with love will create peace, not lusts Gal 5:16, I John 2:16.
So if there should be peace in the world, each human being should love one another, without this no peace, no love no peace. In this world we need peace more than before especially in our country Nigeria. Word of God in I Jon 4:9-11, 12, 16
Peace for ever. I Jn 4:17, 20,21, I John 3:1-3, -8
If one loves the other, they are friendly. So if all human beings are friendly, there will be peace. If people of a nation are friendly with one another, there will be peace. So neighbour to neighbour; so also husband and wife, children and parents, masters and subordinates. Kings and subjects, Head of State and their citizens. Heads of Institutions and the students. Country to countries, love between kings and kings.
If we love God as He loves us, God shall be happy and he will make us happy. Happiness, joy and peace are one.
My people with ….

MY PEOPLE COME BACK TO GOD
Good evening to you all our listeners
Today talk is on my people return to God
Whosoever returns from wrong doing to God shall receive mercy
For in a time like this, when the devil has made it difficult for human beings to be faithful, loyal, obedient, helpful, merciful for others, to love one another, keep to promises, to be good patriots, to abhor evil and selfishness, tribalism, cheating, quarreling, fighting, indiscipline and all acts of lawlessness. In a time like this when injustice is practiced by people, when people do to others as they wouldn’t want people to do to them. I mean what people hate to eat or have, people give to others, and they see nothing wrong with such actions, instead they think they are clever, even this time when people will applaud the wicked person and persecute the righteous, when many rulers are wicked, selfish, careless, lack wisdom and are proud or shy to seek for wisdom, where many rulers have deceitful followers or advisers and helpers who will want to make them to fall so as to take over their posts. Followers of rulers should unite with them. We should know that we are in the wrong way. Wrong doing had led us to the wrong way leading us to suffer under Satan. Our wrong doings are woven together by us and they become crown of thorns, heavy load, big mountain. We then seek a way out. Here we need a change of heart. Trying our best, using our energy, and power is good but not enough. For the Lord God saith “Let the wicked turn away from his wickedness and come back to God. He will be forgiven indeed. Let us seek wisdom and help from God. He had provided a Saviour. For God so love the world…. Zechariah 4:6-7.
You see not by your own power nor by might, but by the spirit of God. Great mountain shall be removed and shall become a plain.
The Lord God is able to remove our shame, our wrong doing. He is able to repair us, transform us from evil doing to righteousness. Let us come to Him. He saith –‘come now let us reason together if our sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow though they be red like crimson they shall be as wool. Learn to do well, seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow...
Isaiah 1:13-15 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. What does God wants us to do? Wash, make you clean, put away the evil of your doing, from before my eyes, cease to do evil.
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land. But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it. I quote from Isaiah. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land. Please be obedient and now come back to your God. Our father in Heaven, thank you for bringing us to what we shall do to be saved by you, i.e. Turn from our iniquities and come back to you. We have been your own from the beginning, please help us to understand and be obedient to you, that from now you give us new hearts to be able to turn away from sins and reject the deceit of Satan and come back to you our God and to live to serve you in spirit and truth. Jesus our Lord our Saviour please help us from now to follow your example in obeying God and in loving and forgiving and in selflessly serving God and humanity, so that at the end we shall enter into your wonderful eternal life and be there with you for ever. We ask in your name Jesus Christ our Saviour.
