The Man of God, Pastor Chris declared at the March Global Communion Service, that March is our Month of Placement! Glory to God!
Words are thoughts clothed with vocabulary. Thoughts are the specific, descriptive imaginations of the mind, which are from the information received through the senses.
The Bible says in James 3:5 (The Message Translation), “A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything-or destroy it! It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire”.
Statistics say that the average number of words spoken per day by a person is 16,000. But how many of these words spoken are valuable? What value do your words have? Share your thoughts now.Prayers tagged by pastortv
In Genesis chapter one, God was operating on a spiritual principle which can be more clearly seen in James 1:14-15. “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” Sin is the product of lust, and lust actually means a strong, urgent, evil desire.
Though this scripture directly relates to a negative desire, yet we find this principle does not only work in the negative realm but also in the positive. When a man is tempted, his lust, that is, the wrong desire tries to pull him away. Finally when he agrees with the wrong desire in his mind, he is enticed. Initially a seed is sown when the man is drawn away by his own lust. This principle does not only work in the negative realm, because good desire can also conceive. And of course you should expect a better result when good desire conceives.
Light is stronger than darkness, good is better, greater and stronger than evil. So if evil desire can conceive and bring forth, good desire can conceive and bring forth its own kind. This is exactly what God demonstrated in Genesis1:2: “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.” And in Genesis 1:11-12: “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yeilding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
This is another principle: everything brings forth after its own kind. So you see, when good desire conceives, it will naturally bring forth good things, just as lust brings forth sin. It happens without being forced. So when God had fully conceived what He wanted the earth to be like, He spoke and it came into being.Uncategorized tagged by pastortv
“Whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant” (Matthew 20:26-27). This scripture underscores the responsibility of service – selfless service – as a key to greatness! Today, the Lord is letting us know that whoever must be great should be a servant – a minister. Now, the word “minister” as used above is from the Greek word “diakonos” which means an attendant, one who serves or runs errands for others; one who renders selfless service.
You’ve been called to service; both to God and of mankind. God is mindful and concerned about people more than anything else. Thus, when you serve people through your work, the Lord will be mindful of you and bless you as well. He’ll cause everything you do to prosper.
The Bible says there’s profit in all labour (Proverbs 14:23). In other words, when you faithfully render service, you’ll surely prosper. You may be a policeman, civil servant, or even the chief executive of a corporation; it doesn’t matter the job or business you do, when your goal is to render quality and selfless service, your greatness will be inevitable. Greed has stopped many from serving their nation and people as they should. Don’t let that be your story. Don’t let the desire for excessive and inordinate gain be your driving force in life. Refuse to yield yourself to such.
Become motivated by the joy of service. Be inspired by the importance and relevance of your job or business towards the betterment of your society. Make yourself needed, relevant and indispensable to your generation by choosing to serve, for that is the pathway to greatness.Uncategorized tagged by pastortv
And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing (Genesis 12:2).
From the scripture above, we notice that it was God who spoke to Abraham and said, “I will make you great”; it wasn’t Abraham who cried out, “O Lord, make me great!” It was God’s choice to make him great, and from that point on, the man did great things. He defeated five kings and their armies with three hundred servants trained in his house (Genesis 14). His wealth and influence outweighed those of the nations where he dwelt. He was a force to be reckoned with by kings of nations around him because of how great he was.
The Bible says, “if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29). If you’re born again, you’re the seed of Abraham; the seed of greatness is in your spirit. Therefore, you ought to do great things. Great people do great things. When the seed of greatness is in a man, he’ll undoubtedly do great things that will be spoken of for generations after Him. Never think small or see yourself as small. You’re the offspring of the great God of glory; His seed of greatness is in you. It’s your set time to do great things.
Every day, tell yourself, “I’m doing great things, for the Spirit of God lives in me! I refuse to think small or do small things. I’m born for greatness!”
Remember, you were born into greatness! Your family history is replete with stories and feats of greatness. I’m not talking about your earthly family, but the family of God to which you belong. This is your time to do great things in the Kingdom of God. It’s your set time to do exploits in your job, business, academics and other areas of your life.
Happy New YearUncategorized tagged by pastortv
As you take stock of the year, it’s not a time to muse over the failures and disappointments of the days gone by, but a time to count your blessings and praise the Lord with joyfulness. Rejoice over what the Lord has done for you this year, and celebrate His goodness and wonderful works in your life. Give Him the sacrifice of true worship; make confessions to His Name.
He has led and guided you through the year in health, safety, victory, success, and prosperity! Therefore, praise Him excitedly. Perhaps, in the course of the year, you experienced certain difficulties and challenges that made you almost despair of life. Maybe you really don’t see the need to be exuberant with praise to the Lord due to the hardship you experienced in the outgoing year.
My counsel to you is, praise Him anyhow! Habakkuk 3:17-19 says, “Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation….” Observe the profundity of the prophet’s submission in the latter part of the preceding verses.
Everything may have failed; everything may have been destroyed; yet, he says, “…I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.” This is the kind of faith response you should have when things seem not to be going your way; don’t despair. Instead, reiterate your trust in the Lord by giving Him praise for doing all things well.
Recall the testimony of Paul and Silas. Rather than cringe in fear and hopelessness, lamenting their predicament, they decided to praise God joyfully (Read their inspiring story in Acts 16:23-36). It’s time for you to praise God like you’ve never done before. You may not feel like it, but praise Him anyway, because that’s where the victory lies!

Jesus taught on the importance and benefit of worship and thanks giving using the story of the ten lepers: “And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole” (Luke 17:12-19).
He commended the one who returned to give glory to God, and said unto him, “Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.” By coming to thank God for his miracle, he got something more than healing; he was made whole. Everything he had lost as a result of the leprosy was completely restored. This is the time to rejoice, it’s not a time to complain, grumble, or reminisce over the failures and disappointments of yesterday! Rather, let it be a time of gratitude, praise, joy, and thanksgiving. Let it be a time to count your blessings and worship the Lord specially and passionately from your spirit.
So today, as you review your experiences and achievements for the year of favour, it’s important that you count your blessings and rejoice over what the Lord has done for you. Celebrate His goodness and many blessings upon your life throughout this year. Appreciate and worship Him from the very depths of your heart, for His great love, kindness, mercy and grace experienced this year. Celebrate Him for His goodness and wonderful works in your life. Give Him the sacrifice of true worship, make confessions to His Name. Show Him how grateful you are for leading and guiding you through the year in safety, health, victory, success, and prosperity!
Express yourself lavishly in worship and praise to the Lord today as you count your blessings in the outgoing year, and contemplate the greater blessings He has in store for you in the coming year. Rejoice and be glad, for it’s a day of joy and thanksgiving.Uncategorized tagged by pastortv
Hello everyone, we are still in the month of Special Grace. The bible says in Hebrews 4:16, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need”.
Notice that our opening verse didn’t say “ask God for mercy,” but to “obtain” or “collect” mercy. Do you need mercy in your life? Don’t pray, “O God, have mercy on me!” That won’t work because He already had mercy on the whole world when He sent Jesus. Jesus was the extended mercy of God. Now, you’re to come boldly to the throne of grace and “collect” it.
The next part says, “…and find grace to help in time of need.” You have to determine which grace you need, because there are different “graces.” Is it the grace for healing, or the grace for multiplication? Is it the grace for winning souls? Which grace do you want? You could even get more grace for your business and for your finances. James 4:6 says, “…he giveth more grace….” It’s God’s desire to increase the grace on your life every time. 2 Peter 1:2 tells us how His grace is multiplied in your life: it’s through the Word—the knowledge of God, and of Jesus, our Lord.
Paul, writing to Timothy, said: “Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 2:1). In other words, “take advantage of the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” You can take advantage of that special grace even now, and rebuke cancer from your body. You can take advantage of it and walk out of any predicament. John 1:16 says, “And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.” We’ve all received of His overflowing grace; that grace, working in you, is the power of promotion and unending success. The Holy Spirit, who Himself is the Spirit of grace, lives in you. He has all the grace you need for an extraordinary life of excellence, victory, and dominion; take advantage of His special grace and reign as a king in life.

You are welcome to December 2013! The Lord has declared this month for you as the month of ‘Special Grace’.At the December Global Communion Service, our Man of God, Pastor Chris taught that you can take advantage of this special grace in all your endeavors, as he read from the book of Zechariah 4:6-7 Then he said, “This is God’s message to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, though you are few and weak. Therefore no mountain, however high, can stand before Zerubbabel! For it will flatten out before him! And Zerubbabel will finish building this temple with mighty shouts of thanksgiving for God’s mercy declaring that all was done by grace alone’’.
You will succeed in this month and always because of the Holy Spirit; and all will be done for you by grace, even the small will become a nation. You are to take a hold of the special grace in this month, run with it and live in it always.
Now you have the opportunity to share your thoughts and expectations with us for the month of December. Click here to start sharing now.

The Bible declares in ‘Hebrews 13:15, “By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name”.
