*RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL *EXUDE JOY AND ESCHEW ANGER .* Monday, September 16th . Pastor Chris _*Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: FOR THE WRATH OF MAN WORKETH NOT THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD (James 1:19-20).*_ Many don’t realise how maintaining a joyful heart is key to fulfilling God’s purpose for their lives. Isaiah 12:3 says, _*“Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.”*_ Your faith prevails in an atmosphere of joy, joy that comes from your inner man. Some allow their desires or failed expectations rob them of their joy. But as a Christian, your joy is independent of circumstances. True joy is in fulfilling your purpose; doing the things the Father asked you to do. The Word admonishes us in James 5:13: “Is any among you afflicted (ill-treated, suffering evil), let him pray; Is any merry, let him sing Psalms.” In Ephesians 4:26, the Word tells us that we shouldn’t allow our anger, fury or exasperation last for long. God’s holy anger is only expressed towards those who do evil and works of unrighteousness; and it’s not your job to be angry on His behalf. For example, when Samuel was angry that the children of Israel asked for a king, God said, “Samuel, why are you angry? They didn’t reject you; they rejected me” (Read 1 Samuel 8:6-7). God didn’t permit Samuel to be angry. Anger defaces your beauty in the spirit. Therefore, eschew anger. Manifest the joy of the Lord always, for the joy of the Lord is your strength; that’s where your glory is. Hallelujah! *CONFESSION* *I’ve put on the new man, which, after God, is created in righteousness and true holiness. I’m full of joy! In me, there’s no bitterness, rage, or anger. I only give vent to the love and righteousness of God, expressing His kindness, meekness, patience and goodness. Hallelujah!* *FURTHER STUDY:* *||* *Proverbs 19:11 NIV* A person's wisdom yields patience; it is to one's glory to overlook an offense. *||* *||* *James 1:19-20* Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. *||* *||* *Ecclesiastes 7:9 CEV* Only fools get angry quickly and hold a grudge. *||* *||* *Colossians 3:8* But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. *||* *DAILY SCRIPTURE READING* *1-Year Bible Reading Plan=>* Galatians 2:1-21 & Songs of Solomon 1-2 #cekano #nnwz2

*RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL* _Tuesday, 17th Sept.,_ *THE GOSPEL MUST BE PREACHED* *Pastor Chris* *For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain (Philippians 1:21).* _In some countries today, the authorities are trying to use the weapons of fear, persecution, and intimidation to suppress and prevent the preaching of the Gospel. But the Gospel can’t be stopped. Jesus said in Matthew 24:14, “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”_ _Never be intimidated by any government, group, or individuals who set themselves against the Gospel. They’ll fail, as they’ve always failed. When Saul of Tarsus made havoc of the Church, Jesus knocked him out and said, “…it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks” (Acts 9:5)_. _There’s no legislation, gang-ups, trumped-up charges and pronouncements against the Church that can stand. Christians need to be more conscious of this, and stand for the Gospel everywhere, preaching it boldly with absolute convictions, even unto death._ _Consider the Apostle Paul’s persuasion about Christ and the Gospel in our opening verse; so inspiring! You can’t be threatened with death when you’re already dead! We’ve been crucified with Christ; nevertheless, we live. Therefore, have no fear of death, because to live is Christ, and to die is gain_. _As far as the Gospel is concerned, some of us have come to understand that whether it’s death or life, we win. Thus, we’re unapologetic about the Gospel; we’re ready and able to face anything! We’ve put it all on the line; we’ve counted the cost and come to one conclusion: the Gospel must be preached; no threats can stop us!_ _Square your shoulders, chin up, chest out, because you’re Christ’s ambassador; the bearer of the news of His saving power. This is your purpose; it’s the reason you’re alive. You’re totally consecrated to God; you’re His property; therefore, nothing and no one can hurt or hinder you from fulfilling your destiny in the Gospel_. _Let the passion to spread the Gospel around the world burn in your heart like never before. Remain resolute and declare like the Apostle Paul: “…necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!” (1 Corinthians 9:16)._ *CONFESSION* *By words and deeds, through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, the Gospel is being fully preached around the world, and many are being hauled into the Kingdom of God! The spirit of dominion is stirred in God’s children around the world to preach the Gospel fearlessly, and in faith, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.* *FURTHER STUDY* _Philippians 1:14; Acts 18:9-10; 2 Corinthians 1:7-10_ *1 YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN:=>* Galatians 3:1-14; Songs of Solomon 3-5 *2 YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN:=>* Luke 23:13-25; 2 Samuel 7-8 #cekano #nnwz2
#TALKINGSESSION 13TH SEPTEMBER. KINDLY SAY THESE WORDS OUT LOUD. Precious Father, I thank You for the victorious and glorious life I have in Christ. Your Word puts me over at all times, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, I prosper in all that I do, and my faith prevails always, to the glory of Your Name. I am forever lifted, strengthened, full of joy and peace because the greater One lives in me. My faith is the victory that overcomes the world; it’s also the only proof I require to know that the things I’ve hoped for are now my present-hour possessions. I thank You for the eyes of my understanding are enlightened. I live by faith and not by sensory perceptions. I dominate the circumstances of my life today and declare that all things are working together for my good, in the mighty Name of Jesus. Amen. • Keep saying it, publish it everywhere; noise it abroad! In Christ, we've got something to shout about. Let's flood the airwaves, internet and print media with the reality of Christ. Speak in other tongues now. ~ Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. #empowerment #enthroned #uplifting #meditation #liftchallenge #renew #strength #stumble #affirmationtrain #talkingsesssion
*Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional* _Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD_ _Friday, 13th September 2019._ *BE MEEK AND LOWLY IN HEART* _Whoever will humble himself therefore and become like this little child [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving] is greatest in the kingdom of heaven_ *(Matthew 18:4 AMPC).* The more knowledgeable you are in the things of the Spirit, the more humble you become. If your knowledge in Christ, and of God, doesn’t produce a greater level of humility in you, then something is wrong; your knowledge is of the flesh and such knowledge puffs up (1 Corinthians 8:1). True knowledge of God is the knowledge of the Spirit, and in unity with His Spirit. The more you know Him, the more you reveal and reflect Him in your thoughts, character, words and actions. In Matthew 11:29, He said, *“…I am meek and lowly in heart….”* The One who said this is the same One described as the embodiment of all knowledge and wisdom. Philippians 2:5-8 further lets us in on His humility. It says, *“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”* Don’t be high-minded. That’s what Jesus meant when He used the word, *“lowly”* in our theme verse. It means to *“condescend without being condescending”*; it’s one of the key things about humble people. Humility is a life; it’ll work in you, whether you’re with the high and mighty or with the lowly. It’s often expressed in action by the willingness to take on the responsibility of service to others, in loyalty to the Word. Something else about humble people is that they take responsibility, even for other people’s errors, and don’t keep record of the wrongs done to them. They free those who hurt them, because true humility is submitting to the Lordship of Jesus Christ through the Word. *PRAYER* _Dear Father, thank you for the impact of your Word in my spirit. I’m completely yielded to the authority, influence, and impact of your Word, producing positive transformations in my character, lifestyle, communication, and attitude, in Jesus’ Name. Amen._ *FURTHER STUDY:* *1 Peter 5:5-6* Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all [of you] be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: *Proverbs 29:23* A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit. *James 4:6* But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. *1 Year Bible Reading Plan :* 2 Corinthians 12:1-21 & Ecclesiastes 3-5 *2 Year Bible Reading Plan :* Luke 22:44-53 & 2 Samuel 1 *#cekano #nnwz2

*Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional* _Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD_ _Thursday, 12th September 2019._ *MAKE THE GOSPEL YOUR PRIORITY* _But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal_ *(Matthew 6:20).* As Christians, we’re workers together with God (1 Corinthians 3:9 ). In other words, we have the same purpose; we’re on the same course. We have the same vision, and we put everything into achieving that vision, which is turning men from darkness to light, and from the domain of darkness into the Kingdom of His love-Son. There’s no other reason for you being on earth than to demonstrate His glory in bringing others to Him, and also train for the Spirit-life. This is why you must use your earthly resources, the things that He has blessed you with, for the furtherance of the Gospel. Your relevance in the spread of the Gospel is one of the major reasons He channels prosperity your way. Your involvement in soul winning attracts more grace and prosperity to your life. Therefore, it’s important that, always, the spread of the Gospel around the world is top priority to you. Matthew 24:14 (TLB) says, *“And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it, and then, finally, the end will come.”* These compelling words reiterate the urgency of the moment—the need to preach the Gospel throughout the world, to every man, woman, boy and girl. It’s our heavenly Father’s desire that everyone hear the Gospel of the Lord Jesus and have the opportunity to believe in His Name. But it’s our responsibility to make it happen. *PRAYER* _Dear Father, I’m grateful for the opportunity to be relevant in the spread of the Gospel. You’ve made all grace abound towards me, such that having all sufficiency in all things, I abound in every good work for the spread of the Gospel and the establishment of your righteousness in the earth, in Jesus’ Name. Amen._ *FURTHER STUDY:* *|Matthew 6:19-21* Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. *2 Corinthians 9:8 AMPC* And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation]. *1 Year Bible Reading Plan :* 2 Corinthians 11:16-33 & Ecclesiastes 1-2 *2 Year Bible Reading Plan :* Luke 22:35-43 & 1 Samuel 31 #cekano #nnwz2

_READ YOUR RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL_ *YOUR WORDS AND YOUR LIFE - PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME* Tuesday, September 10th _For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned_ ( *Matthew 12:37* ). Words possess creative energy. Words are things; they have substance and never die. Jesus showed us how to use words. In every miracle He did, in every blessing He imparted, He used words. He spoke, and whatever He said came into existence. He taught that the most powerful force in life is the force of words and cautioned us not to speak empty, inoperative words (Matthew 12:36). He said in John 6:63, “…the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” The same goes for your words; they’re eternal. Read Romans 10:9 and see the power of words with respect to salvation: “...if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” A man will only go to hell or to heaven on the basis of his words. If he spoke the words that God said we should speak for salvation, he’d be saved. But if he didn’t, he’d be damned. It’s that simple. There’re blessings untold for the one who’s born again, but to enjoy them, you must acknowledge and speak them forth. 1 Peter 3:10 says anyone who wants to enjoy life and see good days must speak wholesomely. Where you are today in life is a reflection of what you’ve been saying all your life. Therefore, build your life with the right words. Speak words that are consistent with the glorious life of righteousness, peace, health, wealth and joy that you have in Christ Jesus. *THE NEW ROR APP 3.0 ON EVERY DEVICE* 💻🖥📲📱 Rhapsody of Realities is God's end-time tool for taking the message of the Gospel to Everyman on Earth.

*RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL *A LIFE OF PURPOSE WITH GOD .* _Wednesday, September 11th_ . *Pastor Chris* _*Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).*_ _Being born again, even though you still have the same physical body, your spirit has been recreated in the likeness of Christ. This is what Jesus made possible for us: He gave us His life and nature of righteousness, having taken our place of sin and condemnation on the Cross. Now we have and live a life of purpose in the earth._ _The moment you were born again, you were born into a life of purpose with God. You’re God’s outstretched hand of blessing to your world. It makes no difference what you were, prior to giving your heart to the Lord. It makes no difference that others may have thought you wouldn’t amount to anything in life. Today, you’re a prince of power with God. Understand, acknowledge, and appreciate your new destiny in Christ._ _We read in our opening verse that_ _*“…old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”*_ _You’ve been catapulted to a life of victory, success, prosperity, hope, and assurance. But that’s not all. Through you, God wants to bring many others into the same blessed union and fellowship of the Spirit, so their lives can also have meaning and purpose with divinity._ *PRAYER* *Dear Father, I rejoice for your seal on me, designating me a child of divine destiny, living out and fulfilling your purpose in the earth. I live over and above the natural courses of life, the corruption, evil, and decadence prevalent in this world of darkness, in Jesus’ Name.
