What’s Your Rhythm?

on Aug 11 in Sharing, Thanksgiving, Theme For The Month tagged , , , , by

It came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking Jehovah; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised Jehovah, saying, For He is good; for His lovingkindness endureth for ever; that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of Jehovah. 2 Chronicles 5:13 (ASV)

Today, music is described as one of the major forms of entertainment, as there are many genres of classical and contemporary music that people enjoy listening to. Some of which are: Rhythm & Blues, Country, Hip Hop, Pop, Jazz, Reggae, Rock and several others. Different music artistes also employ the use of different concepts, styles and instruments to create delightful music.

However, music is not merely for entertainment as it has many other benefits. Studies have shown that when pregnant women have time listening to music, they are helping their babies’ brain development and reducing stress for themselves. Music helps the development of speech and memory. Music can also assist people to recover from chronic pain and emotional distress.

Indeed, God is the Creator of Music. Revelations 4:10 says, ‘’The four and twenty elders fall down before Him that sat on the throne, and worship Him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.’’

As such, any form of music and rhythm we choose should be inspiring and glorify God in it. Now the question is: What kind of music inspires you? How much do you love to praise God? What’s your music flow? What’s your rhythm in this Month of Praise?

August Is Our Month Of Praise

on Aug 06 in Hot & Sizziling, Sharing, Theme For The Month tagged , , , , , by

All Hail! The Lord has declared the month of August to be for us, the Month of Praise.

There is a remarkable account in the book of Matthew 21:15-16; ‘And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased, And said unto Him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings Thou hast perfected praise’. Jesus’ reply to the leaders was to give them an understanding of the prophetic scripture in Psalm 8:2. ‘Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast Thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger’.

Also, we read in the book of Nehemiah 8:10; ‘…the joy of the Lord is your strength’. THE JOY OF THE LORD IS USUALLY EXPRESSED IN PRAISE. When we are joyful before the Lord, we begin to praise Him and as we praise the Lord, the enemy is stilled (he is brought to silence). This is wonderful!

The book of Hebrews 13:15 (Amp) gives a deeper insight on how to praise God; ‘Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name’. The word for ‘giving thanks’ in that scripture is a Greek term “homologeo”, it is a verb which means to make confessions, to acknowledge and to declare. Whereby, you declare the wondrous acts of the Lord in your life.

See God in your situation and find His works in your life. Stop looking for satan in your life, in your body and finances. Discover God’s presence, acknowledge Him and thank Him and He will bring the enemy to silence. Praise Him everyday of this month; praise Him with words, praise Him with your offerings. Again, see God in your situation; discover His presence, for He hasn’t left you to defeat, and He will still the enemy on your behalf. The Month of August is an exciting one. Hallelujah!

What Will The Month Of August Be?

on Jul 31 in Hot & Sizziling, Pastor Chris Live, Sharing, Theme For The Month, Theme For The Year tagged , , by

At the beginning of every month, we receive from our Man of God Pastor Chris that Word from God that positions, directs and guides us for an extraordinary walk with God throughout that month.

In the month of January 2014, we walked with the theme of the year as the year of Greatness. February was the month of Consolation, and we experienced the great comfort of the Holy Ghost in all that concerned us. March was the month of Placement as God rightly positioned us. April was the month of Laughter and the Lord indeed gave us great victories. May was our month of the Open Door. Wow! It was an awesome month as the Lord confirmed His word in our lives by opening doors for us thereby causing a mighty influx of testimonies from all around the world. The month of June was declared by our Man of God as the month of Prayer, and glory to God, we prayed and made tremendous power available, dynamic in its working and we received answers to our prayers. The month of July came and as always led by God’s spirit, Pastor Chris declared the month as the month of Visions. He went further to explain the three kinds of visions that we would receive in the course of the month and stated them as; visions for guidance, visions of the future, and visions of the kingdom.

Now then, what will the month of August be? What is the mind of God concerning us at this time?

Well, it’s almost here again. It’s another glorious time and opportunity to receive that word through our Man of God Pastor Chris; that word from God that will characterize our lives all through the month.

This Sunday 3rd August 2014, brace yourself for an extraordinary, life-changing time of fellowship at the August Global Communion Service with Pastor Chris.

Are you ready?!

Righteousness Vs Holiness

on Jul 29 in Hot & Sizziling, Sharing tagged by

“But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption” (1 Corinthians 1:30).

Some believers have mistaken righteousness for holiness, assuming that there are no differences between both.

Though often used by many interchangeably, holiness is not the same as righteousness as there exists a sharp contrast between the two concepts.

In your opinion, what is the difference between righteousness and holiness and how would you define both terminologies?

It’s Still My Year Of Greatness!

on Jul 21 in Hot & Sizziling, Sharing, Theme For The Year tagged , by

“And the Lord said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify thee in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee” (Joshua 3:7).

At the December 31st Night Service, the Lord declared the year 2014 as our year of Greatness. A year where He will begin to magnify us in the sight of all men; and they will look at us and marvel at the wondrous acts of the Lord in and through our lives.

Having gone halfway into the year, we have had several experiences and testimonies of Greatness; which we are utmost grateful to the Lord for.

The year 2014 has been my year of Greatness. What about you?

Church Service Versus Football Match

on Jul 14 in Hot & Sizziling tagged , , , by

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching”. (Hebrews 10:25).

We live in a world full of several world acclaimed activities, ranging from the Grammy Awards to the Super Bowl to the English Premiere League to mention a few. Some of these events catch our fancy and some of us would give some time and attention to them.

Taking football as a case study, it has become the world’s most populous game as it draws the highest interest and viewership all around the globe.

Considering the above points. If a football match involving your favourite team is scheduled for the same time with your church service; what will you do as an individual?
Will you stay at home to watch the football match or go for your church service?

The True Sacrifice Of Praise

on Jun 20 in Hot & Sizziling tagged by

“By him (Jesus Christ), therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruits of our lips giving thanks to his name” (Hebrews 13:15).

The sacrifices of praise are confessions, declarations, psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs that you render to God for His love, grace, and goodness towards you. They also refer to tributes or speeches that acknowledge and celebrate the Name of the Lord. They’re confessions of God’s Word that we make to glorify Him.

So what has God said about Himself and concerning you in his Word?
