SHIELDED FROM HARM AND DESTRUCTION ~ PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee (Isaiah 43:2). Exodus 13:21 gives an interesting account of how God cared for the children of Israel in the wilderness shortly after they came out of Egypt: “And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night” If you’re familiar with the desert or wilderness you’d know it’s such a terrible place, not conducive to human habitation. At night, it’s extremely cold, and in the day it’s extremely hot. This was the kind of weather situation the children of Israel found themselves. To be under such a harsh weather condition for the number of years they wandered through the wilderness could have meant death for them all. But the Lord was with them, and gave them His own atmosphere. He shielded them as a cloud in the day time, overshadowing them from the scorching heat. Then at night, He was to them a pillar of fire, protecting them against the extreme cold. So the children of Israel traveled with their “own atmosphere”; it was the presence of the Holy Spirit! It you’re born again, you carry this glorious presence of the Spirit in and around you (John 14:17); It’s the blessing of the new creation. You carry your own atmosphere of the miraculous! It therefore doesn’t matter where you might find yourself or what happens around you, that ‘divine’ atmosphere shields and protects you against the harsh conditions and negative circumstances of life. No wonder Jesus described us-believers-as indestructible when He said in Luke 10:19 “…and nothing shall by any means hurt you” You’re divinely shielded and immune from everything that hurts, binds or destroys. Everyone around you may have an infection due to the outbreak of an epidemic, but not you. There’s something about you, in you, and around you that makes you more than a conqueror! There’s something that creates an atmosphere of health and victory around you; it’s the indwelling and abiding presence of the Holy Spirit. So refuse to fear. You’re shielded from harm, evil and destruction. The Bible says “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.” (Psalms 91:7). #themonthofchange #wehavemoved #rhemafortoday #theyearofpreparation #alignment #excellence #affirmationtrain #talkingsession #thankyoupastorchris #prayathon2021 #hspc #stillpraying #8DOM #8daysofmeditation #healing #healingstreams #europeforjesus
…IN CONTROL AND IN CHARGE! ~ PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ (Romans 5:17). God’s children ought to operate from the mountaintop, from the realm of limitless possibilities and perpetual victories, because they’ve taken advantage of God’s grace. The Apostle Paul said such folks “king” (reign) in life; they’re in control and in charge! They exercise dominion over circumstances, and are able to tame the forces of nature! They live a different kind of life—the transcendent life. This was what Paul meant when he told Timothy, “…be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 2:1). That means, “Take advantage of the grace.” Receive grace and reign! Take as much of it as you require for a life of reigning; rule and be in charge by grace. You’re not going to reign in heaven, because there’s nothing to reign over in heaven. You’re to reign as a king in this world; you’re to function with authority in the earth. God has made you superior to Satan, his demons, sickness, disease and infirmity. You’re seated together with Christ, far above all principalities, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come (Ephesians 1:21). Therefore, rule over circumstances; exercise dominion over fear, death, hell, lack, poverty, and death! Manifest the glory of God everywhere; that’s your calling; that’s your life; that’s your heritage! You’re the seed of Abraham, which means despite global economic meltdowns, recessions, and inflation, the grace of God puts you ahead, in charge and in control. #talkingsession #healingstreams #8DOM #yourloveworldspecials #affirmationtrain #wordfest2021 #prayathon2021 #hspc #thankyoupastorchris #rhemafortoday #8daysofmeditation #europeforjesus #asiaforjesus #themonthofchange

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES MONDAY 25 THE FULLNESS OF THE SPIRIT Pastor Chris He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water (John 7:38) Why would any Christian read this and still be asking for more power or double portion anointing? It’s a contradiction! You have the Spirit living in you in His fullness. The anointing is the effect of the power and presence of the Holy Spirit; why ask for the effect when you have the causative personality in you? The Holy Spirit is the power, strength, and wisdom of God. He’s the Spirit of grace and He lives in you as a person. He took up His abode in you with the totality of His being. The fullness of His glory and power should be freely expressed in and through you. The Holy Spirit in you makes you more than a man. There’s a divine energy working in you; it doesn’t burn out, neither does it require replenishing. Refuse therefore to be limited by your physical ability; your potentials are limitless! The Holy Spirit works in you mightily to achieve results that are beyond human ability and comprehension (Colossians 1:29). Affirm this in your life always. Philippians 2:13 says, “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” The God that works in you is the Holy Spirit; He causes you to be willing, and then propels you to do the Father’s will. You can stir up His power to flow in and through you more by speaking in tongues, and meditating on the Word. Hallelujah! CONFESSION I’m full of power, grace and glory, because the Holy Spirit lives in me in His fullness! He’s my ability and the strength of my life. I’m perfected in Him, exuding His righteousness, peace, joy and excellence, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him' At 12noon and 10pm (Local/GMT), we'll offer up praise and worship to the Lord in gratitude for His everlasting love, and the glorious blessings we enjoy in Christ.
