HE CHOSE ME AND I'VE NEVER STOPPED LOVING HIM REVEREND RAY OKOCHA. I grew up in a religious home like most homes are in Nigeria. My parents made sure we all went to church - the Roman Catholic Church. I was very devoted and committed to the church and her activities I even joined the Saint Jude's Society at an early age. I went through the motions of religion not really knowing God or the reality of His word. I believe my parents tried to raise us the best way they knew. They had plans for me as the first child. I was to follow the path of the medical profession as they wanted me to study to become a medical doctor. This may have stemmed from the fact that my mum was a nurse. As a young boy at this time, I did not know anything about God's plan for me. I even thought that born again Christians or 'SU' (Scripture Union) as we called them, were weird people. My Dad had told us of stories of some of his classmates in the University who were born again and that these ones always failed in their academic works. We were all ignorant of the glorious Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. My parents relocated to the oil-rich city of Warri in Delta State, Nigeria. Thus I had to change schools and began to attend Urhobo College, Effurun, a school notorious for having tough and rascally students. In my second year in the school (I was in my fourth form at this time), I noticed a classmate who fitted the description of these weird people - the SUs. He didn't talk much with the rest of us but seemed a little put off with the way we did things. We respected Brother Charles (that was his name) but we didn't relate much to him. One day, Brother Charles invited me to a fellowship during the long break hour. I accepted his invitation and went to the meeting just to be courteous. In the meeting, he told us of his vision he had about the end time - specifically, the coming of the Lord. I wept throughout the message as it dawned on me that I was neither born again nor ready for the Lord's return. At the end of the message, he gave an altar call for those who were not ready for the Lord's return. I went out and said the prayers as directed. Suddenly, I felt a heavy load lift off my heart! Things were never going to be the same again. I was born again; I had received eternal life and God had become my Father. This new relationship with God was far removed from religion. I knew I was a different person. I became very hungry for God's word and wanted to spend time with Him. My parents began to notice a change in me. Although I was a 'good boy' at home before this time (good enough not to go to the drunkard's hell on a banana peel😀), there was something different about me. I began to tell all my friends about my salvation story and invited them all to join me in this new-found life. As I continued in my Christian walk, I discovered that there was something more. My new friends in the fellowship were always talking about the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. Oh, how I wanted this spiritual experience! I bought books on the Holy Spirit and receiving the Holy Spirit. On a fateful day, while still in secondary school, having been instructed to spend time fasting, I went with two friends to pray (they are both ministers of the Gospel presently). They laid hands on me and I received the infilling of the Holy Spirit and spoke in other tongues. Wow! It had finally happened! As I grew in the word, I was no longer satisfied with the spiritual nourishment I was receiving in my church. I stopped attending that church and this action started a 'war' at home. I graduated from secondary school and immediately got admission into the University in November 1984. As I got into school, a classmate of mine who was a brother introduced me to the man of God, Pastor Chris. The moment I shook hands with him, I knew I was connected to him. He looked like Jesus and everything about him fascinated me. I followed him to his room on campus. And I have been following him ever since... • Friends, we invite you to join us as we celebrate this great general in the Army of the Lord. Reverend sir, we all love you dearly.

PRAYER & FASTING GUIDE IN PREPARATION FOR THE NEW YEAR'S EVE SERVICE WITH PASTOR CHRIS SUNDAY 29TH DECEMBER 2019 🔘 Pray for all our personnel and officials for the 31st Service; declare that they would work diligently in line with God’s purpose concerning their specific duties, manifesting divine ability, and we record outstanding success in every unit, resulting in the overall success of the program. EXODUS 31:3-5. And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship... 🔘 Pray that every one of our members is fully and vitally involved in the success of this program, committing ourselves to every responsibility and instruction, being conscious of the enablement of God's Spirit, working selflessly and giving willingly and generously of our time and resources. 2CORINTHIANS 8:3-5 (TLB) - They gave not only what they could afford but far more; and I can testify that they did it because they wanted to and not because of nagging on my part. They begged us to take the money so they could share in the joy of helping the Christians in Jerusalem. Best of all, they went beyond our highest hopes, for their first action was to dedicate themselves to the Lord and to us, for whatever directions God might give to them through us. END OF YEAR PRAYER AND FASTING As we pray and fast this period, pray for yourself, that now, more than ever, you yield your heart to be guided by God's Spirit and by the ministry of His Word, to make the necessary adjustments in different areas of your life, so that that the Lord can rightly position you to walk in His perfect will, and enter into His glorious plans for you in 2020, with greater focus and multiplied results. PSALM 26:2(NLT) - Put me on trial, Lord, and cross-examine me. Test my motives and my heart. PSALM 16:7 - I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. ROMANS 12:1-2 - I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. #enter2020withPastorChris #CEAMC #AMC31STSERVICE
