DECEMBER COMMUNION SERVICE WITH PASTOR CHRIS

Hello all,

Welcome to this special month of December. This month holds such a special place in our calendar because it is the bridging month before we cross into 2012. it is therefore important for each one of us to use our time in this month with a special sense of discretion.

We had our monthly communion service with the man of God Pastor Chris yesterday in which we received God’s instruction for the month. There are two things that we were instructed of the Spirit:

 

  1. This is the month to practice being filled with the Spirit according to Ephesians 5:18-20Ephesians 5:18-20
    English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

    18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

    . You will spend time everyday doing that which the word of God shows as a way to be filled with the Spirit. THIS WILL HELP YOU TO BE MORE THAN READY FOR 2012
  2. Remember how far the Spirit of God has promoted you by meditating on what each month was all about in this year per words in the communion service. These were things the Spirit of God has added to your life and they did not end just because a certain month had come to an end. Each month simply added to the previous.

To help you with these two aspects we have coined this article to refresh your mind and your spirit.  Remember we are having communion service every Wednesday in our satellite churches. Ensure that you attend these meetings. God bless you as you meditate on the words below:

January to December 2011

Jan – Our Year as a Burning and Shining Light

Feb – Month of Soul Winning

Mar – Month of Testimonies

May – Month of Revelation of God’s Word and wisdom

Jun – Month of Strengthening

Jul – Month of Praise

January 2011

At the beginning of the year, the man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, by the Spirit, declared 2011 as OUR YEAR AS A BURNING AND SHINING LIGHT. He admonished us that we should not look for what the year will bring but what you put in the year. This has been our consciousness this year. And the Spirit of God is so awesome that this is also the trend in our ministry for this year.

  • In January, we continued with the powerful words that were deposited in our hearts on the New Year’s Eve Service, our Year as a Burning and Shining Light.

FEBRUARY THE MONTH OF SOUL-WINNING

“The month of February is a special month and we’re going to win souls like never before. Even if you’ve never won souls before now, it’s going to be different this month”, declared Pastor Chris as the teaching segment of the service began.

Elucidating further from verse 32 – 34 in the opening scriptures – Luke 24, the man of God emphasized that the hearts of the disciples burned within them.
32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?  33And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, 34Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.

“They said one to another did not our hearts burn? Why? This was because of the power of the spirit at work from within Jesus; doing something inside their hearts and their hearts ‘burned’ within them” Pastor Chris restated.

Making reference to Acts 2:37-38Acts 2:37-38
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

, Pastor Chris illustrated that same happened when Peter spoke on the day of Pentecost; the Bible says that the Jews were pricked in the hearts after they heard Peter speak and they asked Peter and the other disciples what they needed to do to make amends with God.

Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?  38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Reiterating that when these disciples spoke just like Jesus, something happened in the hearts of the listeners, Pastor Chris posited once more to the world wide congregation “…this is going to be your experience this month. The hearts of your listeners will be pricked and they shall respond as you preach to them”.

Reading further from Acts 10:44Acts 10:44
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.  

WP-Bible plugin
, Pastor Chris, explained that while Peter was still speaking, faith came to his listeners; they believed his message and the Holy Ghost came on them! Just because of the words Peter spoke, the Holy Ghost fell like rain on them. “Same thing would happen through you; the Holy Ghost would fall mightily on your listeners!” the man of God implored and the congregation responded with a resounding “Amen”.

Ending the service, the man of God declared “…in all that you do, God would beautify your efforts. It is a beautiful month of soul winning and you shall be full of testimonies and victory”!


MARCH: A MONTH OF TESTIMONIES
Unveiling the mind of God for God’s people for the month of March, the man of God declared excitedly “this month of March is a month of testimonies. That’s what this month is, a month of testimonies from beginning to the end and we are already having them. If you have any crisis or you are in any difficult situation, you just start thanking God and say “this is my month of testimonies and I’m coming out of this with testimonies”. You see the end from the beginning irrespective of what it is; you say to yourself “I’m coming with testimonies”!

Affirming strongly, Pastor Chris continued “…so you are coming with testimonies for this is a month of testimonies and that’s what the Spirit of God has said; a harvest of testimonies. Just be thankful to the Lord, this month you are going to be full of thanks. No matter what happens, you are going to say “Lord, wow I thank you because this is happening now in my month of testimonies and it’s going to turn out for my good”.  This is prophetic, this is the word of the Spirit to us and it’s coming to you now; it doesn’t matter what the case may be, it’s your month of testimonies. Praise the Lord Jesus!”

What a way to start off a new month! With this revelation, God’s people have been heavily stirred in their spirits and they are excited about the avalanche of testimonies they are set to have this month!

APRIL 2011 COMMUNION SERVICE REPORT

MAY 2011 COMMUNION SERVICE REPORT

Opening Charge
Reading 1st Peter 5:6-7r 5:6-7
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. in due time: or, according to the time 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.  

WP-Bible plugin
as the opening scripture, Pastor Chris charged the Congregation to cast their cares upon God: “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you”. In a bid to make the people see the beauty of these verses, the man of God read again from the Amplified Bible “Casting the whole of your care (all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all) on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully”.  “Meditating on this scripture stirs my spirit” the man of God exclaimed excitedly, “the Word of God tells us what is on His mind and to know what’s on God’s mind, you get to go to His Word…” he exhorted the Live audience as they watched from their various locations across the globe.

Worry No More!
Emphasizing further on the opening verses, Pastor Chris remarked once more that there are people who care so much. “If they don’t worry, they’re not happy. They feel like something is not right if they are not worrying… and they worry so much they got worry wrinkles. They worry all the time. If you took worry away from them, they will not be happy. They love to worry. See, but you can’t live your life like that” he said.

What’s going through you mind? What troubleth thee? Cast them all once and for all, for God is watching you. Not watching you to destroy you, no; watching you, taking care of you. This is what God says about Himself with respect to us” he continued as he used Matthew 6vs 6-8 to buttress this teaching: “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet and when thy hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father in secret, for thy Father which seeth thee in secret will reward you openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions as the heathen do: for they think they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them for your Father knowest what things ye need of, before ye ask Him”.

Why Ask?
Teaching further, the man of God elucidates that God already knows what individual’s need before He is asked. “So, why ask then?” many may wonder.  “Why ask? I mean, if He already knows what’s on my mind, why do I ask? That’s why some people are asking? Doesn’t God know what’s on my mind? Doesn’t God know?” in explaining these questions, Pastor Chris illustrated that the physical world and the spiritual world are two different realms of life. “They are not the same; just because you live in a certain way here in this world, in this plane of life doesn’t mean that’s the way God sees things”.

Different Kinds of Prayer
Amplifying further on spiritual principles, Pastor Chris read from the book of Ephesians 6 verse 18 “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints”. In the NIV, the Bible says: “And pray in the Spirit on all occasion with all kinds of prayer requests…” That means there are different kinds of prayers…There are rules that govern prayer. All prayers are not the same; there are different kinds of prayer”. There are different kinds of prayers in the Bible but they are not governed by the same rules. And saying this, the man of God went on to state the different kinds of prayers that there are:

1)The Prayer of Faith; 2) The Prayer of Agreement;  3) The prayer of Dedication and Consecration;  4) The Prayer of Praise and Worship;  5) The prayer of Prophetic Utterance which is also known as Prophetic prayer;  6) Meditative Prayer and,  7) The Prayer of Intercession.

Shedding more light on this, the man of God further explained that there are also various methods of prayer; methods of communication in prayer.  The first amongst these is praying in other tongues; the second one is praying in your understanding; the third one is praying with groanings or deep sighs.

“If there are so many different kinds of prayer and there are rules to govern them, that lets you know how important prayer is in the Word of God and how we need to learn about prayer. When you are in a situation, what kind of prayer should you pray? One more reason why you need to be in the house of God…”  “…To face the challenges of life, you need a lot more. And to live a very successful life, you need to put more into your spirit because what you have inside you is what you will bring out when push comes to shove” he emphasized emphatically

Your Responsibility
Still expatiating, the man of God posited “Let me read something to you in the Book of Ezekiel chapter 36…”: “A new heart also will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away stony heart out of your flesh and I will give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you… And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your Fathers… I will also save you from all your uncleannesses and I will call forth the corn (prosperity)…” Wonderful, this is great! “…Thus saith the Lord God, in the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will also cause you to dwell in the cities and the wastes shall be rebuilt…” God makes these beautiful promises. Wonderful!

God is talking about how He’s going to bless His people and then strikingly He says in verse 37, “Thus saith the Lord God: I will yet for this day be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock…” Think about it. He says I will bless them… but they have to pray for me to do it. They’re going to have to ask me!  “He’s letting us understand the relationship between those in the earth and the heavenly powers that are made available to us. He’s letting us know that we’re going to work together. He’s letting us know that even though God wants to do great things in your life and He speaks prophetically into your life, there are glorious things he wants to do for you, you’ve got a responsibility. You’ve got to ask for me to do it; in order words, you’ve got to give me the permission; you’ve got to take advantage of my ability. That’s what He meant when Paul wrote to Timothy: “Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus…” In order words, take advantage of the grace that is in Christ Jesus”! Pastor Chris declared excitedly.

Lifting Up Holy Hands
Reading on, “…Now, let me read something else to you in Matthew 18:18Matthew 18:18
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.  

WP-Bible plugin
Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven”. Did you see that? Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth… that means whatever you forbid to take place on earth shall be forbidden in heaven; that means heaven will give the authority and back what you have said. You refuse sickness in your family. You bind the works of evil in your family. That means heaven will put a stamp on it and say “that’s right!” if you don’t do it, nothing will be done. Nothing will change. And you will keep saying “O God, I don’t know why? I don’t know why things keep going bad…?” You’ve got a job to do” he admonished everyone as they listened with rapt attention.

Sharing further from the book of Exodus, chapter 17, the man of God explained more using an illustration of the Israelites’ victory over the  Amalekites; when Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed;  as long as those hands were held up, Israel prevailed. What a remarkable discovery!
“What’s important here is how an act of faith in the earth caused victory for God’s people. And the heavenly powers made available to us were activated by actions in the earth. He wasn’t talking. His hands went up and Israel prevailed and his hands went down, and their enemies prevailed against them. What did Paul say? He said: “I will that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.” He says “Pray, lifting your hands”. How often do you lift your hands in prayer? Do you realize the lifting of our hands as the evening sacrifice according to the Bible? Do you realize how important it is for us to lift our hands when we pray?”

“Paul said I will that all men pray everywhere, lifting holy hands… What is he telling you? There is a signal of your victory. Learn to lift your hands in prayer and you will prevail. You say “well, I’ve been going through difficulties in my life”; maybe this is what you haven’t done yet. When Moses lifted up his hands, Israel prevailed; when his hands went down because he was tired, his enemies prevailed against him. And Paul said, “I want you to do it this way: lift your hands in prayer”. Oh! When you lift your hands in pray, you’ll experience an inspiration in prayer that you never knew. You’d be amazed. There’ll be an inspiration in prayer that you have not experienced before. You lift your hands and say “Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus…” Halleluyah!

The Month of Revelation in God’s Word
“The anointing is here to share the Word of God with you. This month is a special month, this month of May; I’m telling you is a beautiful month! It’s a month in which the Spirit of God is going to be bringing us revelation of His Word. It’s a month of Revelation in the Word of God. The Spirit of God is going to give that anointing to you, even now as I’m sharing the Word of God with you. The anointing is coming on you. The anointing of God is being imparted to you to receive more and more knowledge of His Word. As you study the Word of God this month of May, there will be a new understanding, a new quickening of your spirit” Pastor Chris declared deeply.

“Now, I want to read to you something about it, so that you’ll understand where we’re going this month. By the end of this month, you will be in another level in your life. Ephesians Chapter 1 (Amplified version):  “Wherefore I also, after I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and love unto all the saints, cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.” Praise God. Hallelujah! “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened that you may know what is the hope of His calling and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints…”

Prayer For The Month
“This month, you pray like this: “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory grants me, gives me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. He gives me, the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of my understanding…” See, you personalize this prayer here. This is the prayer that Paul prayed for the Ephesian church. No wonder the church in Ephesus were so enlightened in the things of God. They were so enlightened about spiritual matters and they grew remarkably in the things of God. They were mature in the things of God. They walked in the light of our divine nature and they were very successful. And this will also bring you to that place of success. Look at it: so, you pray as he prayed for them from the 17th verse. “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, grants me…” If your name is John, you say “John…”. “…grants me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. The eyes of my understanding being enlightened; that I may know what is the hope of His calling and the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.” You personalize this!” established the man of God.

“Personalize this everyday for the next one week; say it every day for the next one week.  All right?” And explicating further, Pastor Chris read more from God’s Word “For this reason ever since I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ…. (NIV) Did you notice “…I keep asking…” “That means it was not a one-time prayer. It was not a one-off prayer. You see. So, my telling you that you do this in the next one week is significant”.

An Important Admonition
In ending the most enlightening teaching segment of the Communion Service, the man of God urged the attendees ardently “…the Spirit of God is going to enlighten you like never before. Now listen: this is not going to happen if you ignore the Bible. It’s not going to happen if you if ignore the Word of God. Get the Word in you. Study the scriptures. Get the messages. Listen to the messages, the tapes, the CDs, VCDs, the DVDs. Get it into your ipods or iphones or whatever your mobile device is. So, that everywhere you are, you can listen to the Word of God from time to time. So important; increase your knowledge of the Word this month of May. And the Spirit of God will minister to you; open your mind to the things you never knew before”. Hallelujah!

Wow! What a service! Not one participant in this month’s Communion service left their various venues untouched. The words heard from God’s teaching Priest, Pastor Chris, re-echoed in their hearts so strong as they made their way home.

Surely, this month, we will increase in wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God, and we are set to experience a continuous series of the miraculous!

A REPORT ON THE JUNE 2011 COMMUNION SERVICE WITH PASTOR CHRIS

“Welcome to this special program in this special month of June, one in which we’d be engaging together in several spiritual activities…” these were the opening words of the man of God, Pastor Chris, as he welcomed the online congregation to yet another awe-inspiring Communion service; the 6th edition in this glorious year 2011: Our Year as A Burning and A Shining Light.

JUNE: OUR MONTH OF STRENGTHENING
In opening the 3rd main segment of the service, the man of God read from 3 inspiring books from the Bible. First from the book of Luke 22:41-43Luke 22:41-43
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. willing, remove: Gr. willing to remove 43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” 43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.

Reading further, he opened 1Kings 19:7-8:
7 And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, “Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for thee.” 8 So he arose, and did eat and drink; and he went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.

And then, Revelations 3:2: Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Making reference to these scriptures, Pastor Chris explicated that the 1st scripture shows the Lord Jesus being strengthened by the Holy Spirit. The food Elijah fed on in 1 Kings 19:7-81 Kings 19:7-8
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

7 And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee. 8 And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.

is the Word of God and even though Elijah was running from Jezebel, he was being led by God!

What is the Lord saying unto us in this month? Asking the attentive congregation this question, the man of God postulated “…this month of June is a month of Strengthening!” “…like Jesus, when we pray we shall also be strengthened. And this is exactly what we require; to be strengthened by God…” he proclaimed to the world-wide viewers.

Going on, the man of God admonished “…But then we also bear the responsibility keeping ourselves in the strength of God all the time. Whatever talents and gifts of God in your life, you need to strengthen them if they have become weak. You need to strengthen yourself in prayer, strengthen yourself in the study of God’s Word, strengthen yourself in evangelism and soul-winning. Hallelujah!”  “Whatever area of your life that’s been weakened by negligence, it is time for you to strengthen it now. As we get strengthened by God’s Word and the Spirit of God, it is our responsibility to strengthen those weakened areas of our lives and ministry”, Pastor Chris further charged the congregation.
And with these teachings, the man of God urged everyone present in the meeting to pray to be strengthened in various areas of their lives. Strength he said, should come every time the Word of God is studied and also in times of prayers.

A REPORT ON THE SUNDAY 3RD JULY COMMUNION SERVICE WITH PASTOR CHRIS

Pastor Chris went on and spoke about the significance of the month of July. He said “Apart from marking the end of the first half of the year, it is the seventh month of the year… and seven is a special number – a number of completion” .

Reading from the bible, Pastor Chris asked the teaming participants from all around the world, to turn their bibles to 2 Chronicles 20:222 Chronicles 20:22
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. And when...: Heb. And in the time that they, etc to sing...: Heb. in singing and praise they were...: or, they smote one another  

WP-Bible plugin
and before reading this scripture , he says “what the month is like, what you are going to do, and what God is going to do for you; what you can expect of him and what He expects of you”.

The bible says in 2 Chronicles 20:222 Chronicles 20:22
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. And when...: Heb. And in the time that they, etc to sing...: Heb. in singing and praise they were...: or, they smote one another  

WP-Bible plugin
“And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.”

Pastor Chris explains that Judah , the smaller portion of Israel after their split into two separate nations, was attacked by other three nations, Ammon, Moab and Seir. And Jehoshaphat king of Judah prayed to God that He should not permit the enemy to take away the land He gave to them.

Pastor Chris went on to say that just because God gives us something does not mean that Satan would not try to destroy it or take it away from us. He would try.

Pastor Chris says just like he tried using Ammon, Moab and Seir to take away the land from Judah, but Jehoshaphat was wise in gathering all of Judah together and demanded that they ‘pray  to God’.

Pastor Chris made mention of the fact that when they prayed, God spoke to them. God told them not to be afraid but to go out against them the next day. He also told them where the enemy was camped and gave them a strategy. “This is amazing, really, how God responds. He told them everything they needed to know about the enemy”, Pastor Chris declared.

With the same scripture in focus, Pastor Chris emphasized that regardless of what we have done before now to improve our conditions, whether it’s been prayers or declarations; that this month, we would have to take another step. He said; “this next step is that we would have to activate the power of God, because when we prayed God already answered. But how to activate the power of God is what many Christians don’t know.”

Pastor Chris spoke specifically on how to activate that power  -“when they began to sing and to praise…..when they began to sing was when the victory started.”

Just like Jehoshaphat did, he went out to war and put singers in front of the army – musicians in front the soldiers! It looked stupid! But that was the strategy which God gave him!

Pastor Chris tells us that, “in the evil day of battle, when trouble strikes and there’s pain, you can think about putting the singers in front. The Bible says as they began to sing and to praise, God set ambushments against the enemy; and they threw swords on each other and destroyed themselves.”

He says by the time Jehoshaphat army got there, they were all smitten.

Having explained the direction of which he was going with the theme scripture, Pastor Chris went on to declare that

THE MONTH OF JULY IS A MONTH OF PRAISE!!

He instructs, saying “you are going to praise God in this month of July, and as you do just like the children of Judah did, He would set up ambushments against your enemies, and He would perform miracles for you.”

He continues, “you’re going to activate the power of God where you are, you’re going to praise him, you will sing. This month you will sing, you will sing and you will sing.”

Wow! Unmistakeably was the emphasis on singing in this Month of Praise. Pastor Chris re-iterated saying, “…don’t wait for the song to come, make it. Make the song, sing it. When you feel like it and when you don’t feel like it. When you’re happy and when you’re not happy, sing it.”

Pastor Chris said that though Judah went out to war, it wasn’t a happy thing but they were happy because God had spoken to them.

Drawing from a scripture in the New Testament, Pastor Chris spoke about Paul and Silas; when they were thrown in prison in Acts 16:25-27Acts 16:25-27
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. 26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed. 27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.

.

The Bible says:

“25: And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and SANG PRAISES UNTO GOD: and the prisoners heard them.

26: And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

27: And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.”

Pastor Chris threw some light on the attitude that Paul and Silas had while in prison. He says “they sang praises, not songs of regret. They sang praises. The power of God was activated; the power of the Holy Spirit was brought to bear. That same power lives in you. ”

Pastor Chris went on to say “The problem is many don’t know how to activate that power that is in them to make it work for them. This month of July, you are going to praise Him, it’s the month of praise. You will sing praises to God; you will speak in tongues – joyous tongues. Not weeping tongues; because there are weeping tongues, but there are joyous tongues as well!”

Pastor Chris instructs that in the month of July, joyous tongues of praise and thanksgiving should be spoken, and this is what should be done! He assures that when this is done, miracles will be seen and that the power of God will move on behalf of everyone that heeds to this spiritual instruction.

Breaking forth into other tongues and keeping at it for several minutes, the excitement in the declaration of the message of the month could be seen on the Man of God. He further declared that he was stirred in his spirit.

What a glorious communion it was as the bread was broken and the wine drank in one accord by all participants in various parts of the world. All done in remembrance of the Lord, Jesus Christ

With glorious and inspiring Words in prayer, Pastor Chris spoke forth blessings, eternal in nature and then brought the meeting to an end proclaiming “HAVE A WONDERFUL MONTH OF JULY!!!”

At the beginning of the year Pastor said that it is not what the year will bring to me, i have to make sure that i live with the consciousness of the them and results will be evident.

SEPTEMBER 2011 COMMUNION SERVICE

WITH PASTOR CHRIS.

 

INTRODUCTION:

 

You know in the month of August, the Lord lead us into a special season of productiveness – a time of supernatural excellence naturally.

If you have been observant you’d realise that this has been so for you. And also for us as a ministry, it has been a special time of bliss.

From God’s word see that there are certain times and seasons that God prepares for us to function in.

August began for us such a season; meaning that anything we lay our hands upon to do will prosper despite the world being in a season of gloom and doom.

 

No wonder the Bible says when they say there is casting down, thou shalt say there’s lifting up.

God is saying you can take your step and do whatever you have purposed to without any fear or doubt – take advantage of the season. You will get a bountiful harvest for anything you decide to do this season. What we are experiencing is a period of upliftment. This month of September, we’d continue in that period of productiveness.

And will it end? Emphatically no – that season continues now, and even beyond September.

October 2011

This is very important!

 

Have you been a burning and a shining light?

Notice the words of Jesus concerning John: He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light (John 5:35John 5:35
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

This means when you are a burning and a shining light you give a light that blesses others. We are blessed and we are a blessing!

Isaiah 60:1Isaiah 60:1
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

60 1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. shine...: or, be enlightened; for thy light cometh  

WP-Bible plugin
: Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.

Our light is come! The glory of the Lord is risen upon us!

This is a reality for the now! This is true! This is happening now!

My light is come! The glory of the Lord is risen upon me! I live a life of glory!

Isaiah 60:2Isaiah 60:2
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

: For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people…

Have you heard of the present distress of nations? Have you heard of the present distress of people, families, companies, etc.?

Can you feel what’s happening to the world; and the darkness that is coming?

Jesus said it: “And there shall be… distress of nations, with perplexity… Men’s hearts failing them for fear… (Luke 21:25-26Luke 21:25-26
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

[Perplexity: inability to understand or handle something clearly and decisively; to be puzzled and entangled].

This is what is going on now! This is what Isaiah spoke about In Isaiah 60:2Isaiah 60:2
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

BUT HEAR WHAT THE LORD SAYS!

Isaiah 60:2Isaiah 60:2
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.  

WP-Bible plugin
: …but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

 

Every time there has been economic hardship; every time the nations have had distress… God’s people have triumphed!

And God shows us in the Word how that happened. And how it should happen!

 

When you hear of these things never let your heart shake!

Never become troubled! The problems of the world are your opportunities! Remember that! Get stirred in your heart!

When men are cast down, then thou shall say, There is lifting up (Job 22:29Job 22:29
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

29 When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person. the humble...: Heb. him that hath low eyes

).

Never find yourself drowning with them! Don’t drown with the world!

You have been chosen out of the world. You don’t belong to the world!

Don’t let your heart be afraid – that’s what Jesus said “neither let your heart be afraid” (John 14:27John 14:27
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  

WP-Bible plugin
).

Don’t say “things are getting worse” or “what am I going to do?”

The distress is not because of you – it’s because of them! He separated you from the world.

Someone might say “yes, but I am part of what is going on…” You are not part of what is going on! He gave you another system to live by!

He gave you new principles to live by!

(Abraham) looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God (Hebrews 11:10Hebrews 11:10
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.  

WP-Bible plugin
)

We have found that city! We are in that city! We are that city!

“Foundations”: Principles to live by; principles from God.

In the days of Abraham there was famine and trouble, but he had these principles locked in his spirit.

He lived by those principles, and things changed for him (his life was different from that of the masses; he rode over and above; he had different results) He was blessed in all things!

Abraham is called the father of faith. Abraham believed God!

 

All you have to do is believe!

Remember the words of Jesus: “Only believe!” (Mark 5:36Mark 5:36
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.  

WP-Bible plugin
)

Jairus’ plight or the blind men: Jesus said “Only believe!” That’s all He asked for.

Remember, love believes all things (1 Corinthians 13:71 Corinthians 13:7
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.  

WP-Bible plugin
)

 

And that is what I am saying to you today: Only believe!

When life seems dark and situations look impossible… hold your head up high and believe! – That’s something you can do! Anyone can believe!

We don’t believe with our mind. The mind may be full of frightening or confusing thoughts, but refuse to give in to them.

Instead, believe with your heart: For with the heart man believeth (John 10:10John 10:10
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  

WP-Bible plugin
).

 

Don’t let your heart be attacked by unbelief, or fear, or doubt, or any suggestion from the adversary. Protect your heart!

Protect your heart with the Word of God. Thoughts and doubts may come to your mind, but don’t let them come to your heart.

(In the positive that’s what we need with the Word of God – not to remain in the mind, but to get to our spirit)

And if you can believe God, If thou can believe, all things are possible to him that believeth (Mark 9:23Mark 9:23
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.  

WP-Bible plugin
).

And you will change circumstances: where you were a failure (loser) you become a success (winner).

Greater is he that is in (me), than he that is in the world (1 John 4:41 John 4:4
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.  

WP-Bible plugin
) – proclaim this every day, every time!

 

And then you start meditating on the Word.

As you do, your faith would be stirred up; and you renew your thinking, you renew your mind. And then, as you mind is changed, you begin to make faith proclamations!

Make those faith proclamations and the adversary cannot stop you!

Let the Word grow mightily in your heart! And the Word will prevail and prevail!

 

This month of October we are still in our season of productiveness.

Yet there is something special about this month: You are going to use this month to make faith proclamations and watch your words come to pass!

Insist on who you are in Christ Jesus! Proclaim who you are in Christ Jesus! Insist on your rights!

sows that the human spirit has an extraordinary capacity to comprehend, because He has set all of eternity in our spirits. There’s a limitlessness to the ability of the human spirit to see and comprehend.

Throughout this month, you’re going to be seeing with your spirit. This is far beyond the realm of seeing with your mind. In this month, you have to practise this. God is helping you see with your heart. You would experience divine insight into mysteries and secrets; seeing the unseen. And when you see them, you would be able to interpret them by God’s Spirit.

November is a month of vision, and you will see visions by the power of the Spirit of God. You would see far, the deep things of the Kingdom. God would reveal to you mysteries and secrets.
