November: The Month Of Strengthening!

on Nov 04 in Discussion, Hot & Sizziling, Pastor Chris Live, Prayers, Scriptures, Sharing, Theme For The Month tagged , , , by

Glory to God! November is the month of Strengthening.

The Global Communion Service was a glorious one for us all as the Man of God through the leading of the Spirit declared November as the month of Strengthening. Reading from Luke 22:40-44, an angel appeared unto Jesus at the place of prayer strengthening him. Pastor Chris explained why the Angel, which is the Holy Spirit came strengthening Jesus – it was because the Lord Jesus was struggling for victory. He knew He had to win the battle that was posed before Him. This caused Him to pray even more earnestly, such that His sweats were like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

Also, reading from Matthew 26:41; the very words of Jesus which says that we should pray that we enter not into temptation; the Man of God expatiated on the reason for this statement to mean that when one’s flesh is weak, that is when one should pray more to gain dominance. The flesh will always lead one to do the wrong things and may cause one to go against the Word of God. Hence, the need to pray fervidly to dominate the flesh.

This is the month of Strengthening with a difference Pastor reiterated; outlining the three phases of strengthening:
1. Strength for the Journey: There is a long journey for your life and you need strength for the journey. Taking the reading from 1 Kings 19:7, Pastor gave insights of how an angel brought food to Elijah to strengthen him. Explaining the spirituality to this act: you need the food of the Word to help you. The Spirit of God is going to be strengthening you this month but you need to be a part of it. God is leading you in a certain way, so you can have strength for the journey.
2. Strength for the Battle: There are going to be battles and conflicts to fight, so you’re going to need strength for the battle. 2 Samuel 22:40 says, “You’ve equipped and clothed me with strength for the battle…”. The angel of the Lord equipped Jesus for the battle. The angel helped Him in the place of prayer. That’s where the angel meets you; in the place of prayer. This kind of strength is spiritual and it comes from the place of prayer.
3. Strength for the Times: We are in special times in God’s calendar. Looking at Daniel 10:14, we read of how Daniel’s strength dissipated when he saw the visions of what was to come. These are perilous times; put your faith and your trust in the Lord. Ensure that you’re firmly rooted in the things of the Spirit.

Having received this insightful message for the month, the Man of God as led by God’s Spirit gave us spiritual instruction to fast and come together to pray every Friday of the month. He admonished us to take this very seriously in November as the Lord is going to minister to us during these periods and strengthen us.

Knowledge And Understanding

on Oct 24 in Discussion, Hot & Sizziling, Sharing tagged by

They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course… I have said, ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. Psalm 82:5-7

Knowledge and Understanding are two concepts that may sometimes be controversial. It is imperative to mention that they are not the same as a sharp contrast exists between them. There is a possibility of a person possessing one of either qualities or both.

What do you think is the difference between knowledge and understanding? And how can you differentiate both?

Righteousness and Right-Living

on Oct 13 in Discussion tagged by

“For he hath made him to be sin for us who knew no sins; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him”. (2 Corinthians 5:21).

One day, I asked a born again gentleman: “Are you righteous?” He paused to think for a while and replied, “I am working on it.”
“So, how are you going to know when you are finally righteous” I quizzed him further. At that point, he didn’t know what more to say. Like that gentleman, many Christians don’t think they are righteous because they equate righteousness with right-living. They look at their actions to rate their righteousness. But there is a difference between the two concepts.
What do you think is the distinguishing factor between righteousness and right-living?

October: The Month of Supernatural Help!

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

Glory! October is the month of Supernatural Help.

The Man of God Pastor Chris at the Global Communion Service declared this month as led by the Spirit of God to be the month of Supernatural Help. Taking his reading from the book of 1 Chronicles 5:20 which says, “And they were helped against them, and the Hagarites were delivered into their hand, and all that were with them: for they cried to God in the battle, and he was intreated of them; because they put their trust in him.

He also read 2 Chronicles 26: 1–15, “Then all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amaziah. He built Eloth, and restored it to Judah, after that the king slept with his fathers. Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem. And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Amaziah did. And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him to prosper. And he went forth and warred against the Philistines, and brake down the wall of Gath, and the wall of Jabneh, and the wall of Ashdod, and built cities about Ashdod, and among the Philistines. And God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians that dwelt in Gurbaal, and the Mehunims….and his name spread far abroad; for he was marvellously helped, till he was strong”.

The Man of God explained how that King Uzziah was greatly and marvelously helped of God such that his fame spread abroad. He also read the word of the Lord from Isaiah 41: 10-13 which says, “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee”.
Wow! What an awesome blessing the Lord has extended to us at this time, taking us from a season of more grace to a glorious time of supernatural help.

So, what is it you want? Supernatural Help is available all through this month!

Taking Advantage of Technology For The Gospel!

on Sep 30 in Hot & Sizziling, Uncategorized tagged , , , , by

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.2. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light”. Genesis 1:1 – 3.

The word technology is a combination of two Greek words, techne and logos. Techne means art, craft, or skill. Logos means “to speak of”. Some have since taken the word logos to imply the practical application of techne, but others say that is stretching its etymological roots. Technology can be seen as the use of science in industry, engineering, etc, to invent useful things or to solve problems. Technology has been of immense benefit to the world and the gospel is not an exception as it has helped in a great deal when it comes to spreading the Word.

With technology and the advancements on the Internet, the gospel is now being taught and preached in literally every country on earth. Technology has considerably changed the way we preach the gospel. That which was difficult and localized is easy and worldwide. Thousands of digital productions are completed and posted only moments after live delivery, in video, audio, and text versions.

Using technology, Christians are making the gospel accessible in remote corners of the planet. The specific opportunities that computers and the internet offer are too numerous to mention.

Now, how do you see technology as a tool for advancing the gospel?

Grace is not just unmerited favour, it is the inward working power that brings favour, acceptability, advantage, liberality and gifts to those who have received it.

In addition, it is that supernatural elixir that makes all things work out for your benefit. It is an inward flow that causes an outward expression of joy, pleasure and acceptance in your life.

Shouting Scriptures!

on Sep 02 in Hot & Sizziling, Scriptures, Sharing tagged by

‘’Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory’’ (Colossians 1:26-27)

Christianity is not a religion; it is divinity at work in humanity. The book of 1John 4:4 says; ‘‘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’’. We are not some religious freaks inspired by some imaginary fantasies. We’ve got something real and it is worth shouting about!

There are certain scriptures that are considered to be “Shouting Scriptures’’! These are scriptures that cause the wellspring of joy to overflow from within you and cause currents of the anointing to surge your being every time you quote them; as they make dynamic power available.

Here, you have the opportunity to inspire others with those scriptures that turn you on to unleash your faith against the rebellious circumstances of time.

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!
