IT'S OUR MONTH OF BLESSINGS. BE BLESSINGS CONSCIOUS ~ PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The LORD bless thee, and keep thee (Numbers 6:23-24). As Christians, we’ve been called to a life of blessings; we’re to walk in blessings, speak and manifest blessings every day and everywhere. Imagine walking into your home, office, classroom, or board meeting, speaking blessings! The Bible adjures us to render blessings, for that’s our calling (1 Peter 3:9). It’s like what the Lord said to Aaron and his sons, the priests. He commanded them to pronounce blessings on the children of Israel, even though the children of Israel were His own people. The Jews today are inarguably some of the most successful people in the world, because of their consciousness of the blessings of God. They teach their children, and their children’s children to speak blessings, and be conscious of blessings. The blessings upon the Jews are, however, not as glorious as the blessings upon the Church—the new creation. Yet, because not many in the Church have been adequately taught how to bless and receive blessings, we haven’t seen much results in this regard. For example, when we say to someone, “God bless you.” To some people, it’s a mere religious platitude that doesn’t mean much. However, to the spiritually enlightened, it’s an invocation of something supernatural. Why would God instruct Aaron and his sons to bless the children of Israel, who were already a blessed people? It’s because the pronouncement of blessings activates the power for the blessings to work. He told the priests what to say in pronouncing blessings on the people; it’s in Numbers 6:24-27; study and meditate on it. Even today, they still speak those words of blessings. Now you understand why anything they do prospers. In your life, be blessings conscious. When you’re in Church, for example, and the minister of God stretches forth his hands or pronounces blessings, receive with your spirit. Blessings flow through our hands and from our words. The words of blessings spoken into your life have power; they actually guide your life and lead you in the path that God wants you to go. #divine #blessings #ministry #uplifting #wehavemoved ##ippc2019 #affirmationtrain #talkingsession
“If you don't make time to work on creating the life you want, you're eventually going to be forced to spend a LOT of time dealing with a life you don't want”. With these words the Highly Esteemed CMD kicked off the Saturday morning session, teaching the leaders on ‘Leadership Essentials: Personal Development Through Prayers & Bible Study’. Amongst several other definitions, he defined Development as the progressive advancement, evolution, growth of a person or thing from one state or stage to another; usually from a lesser, simpler state to a superior more complex state through the activation of established laws, processes or action. It’s about building your spirit- the real you. Whatever happens there controls your world. Your effectiveness in life & in the things of the Spirit, is directly proportional to your level of spiritual growth. [If you’re not growing you’re not glowing]. * As a leader, understand- Leadership is responsibility; responsibility for others. In leadership, you’re taking people where they’ve not been, how can you take them if you’ve never been there yourself? You cannot put in people what is not in you. You cannot give what you don’t have. PRAYER is primarily communication with God. Through prayer you build your spirit & increase your spiritual sphere of influence. The man that God will use is a man of prayer. * Now on Campus, practice the art & life of prayer. If you get it now, you have it made. Mark 1:32-35 notice vital things to learn from this portion; 1. The Time of Prayer 2. The Environment & place of prayer 3. The Solitude/seclusion in Prayer Luke 5:16, Matthew 14:23, Luke 9:18, 28 STUDY- Searching the scriptures to learn more, discover more about God, life, you, the Kingdom and appropriating the lessons and truths in your life. * Life is spiritual machine & the Bible is the manual. Don't presume! Study to know 2 Timothy 2:15 * Make time for success- for prayer, study, meditation. In our world today, so many things competing for your time but you must fight to get that time for your spiritual development. 1 Timothy 4:7-8 He proceeded to elucidate steps to cultivating a lifestyle of prayer and how to study effectively. Wow!! What an eye-opening session!!! #TIEWesternNigeria #TIEConference2019 #TIENIGERIA #CMDISFIRE #BLWCampusministryrocks
