*HOW TO ADDRESS PASTORS ESPECIALLY IF THEY'RE YOUR FRIEND* Pastor Chris said never speak with or to a Pastor when you are upset because you think he did something or whatever..... You will get into trouble. It is a very serious matter because when you do, your life will never go straight .......be the same again... Don't get too used to or familiar with the anointing, otherwise it will not work for you. Even as your Pastor may be your friend or be easy going, always remember who he is and what he carries, and honour & esteem him very highly. Address him or her with respect. Don't say "hi passi or any other funny name" learn to say Good Morning Pastor Sir & Maam. The pastor may not even mind when you address him in an inappropriate way, but the anointing will surely mind & will honour or dishonour you accordingly. Act with revelation and understanding. Don't nurse your misunderstanding or harbour grudges rather communicate with reverence. This means express with esteem, knowing that your pastor can not be against you and that which you're upset about has a teaching within it and a lesson to learn from it. Seek clarity with an aim to learn. Not to find fault or complain; thinking of telling him or giving him a piece of your mind. Don't do that. A Pastor is not a usual person, he/she is a gift from God to men. It matters how you treat what God has given you as a gift....Your Pastor, your righteousness, your faith...... Let pride be dealt with in your heart through the Word and prayer. Declare that you have a teachable Spirit as a Christian. Don't be looking at reputation or whatever, to exhibit a character that can cost you your own salvation. We are a terminal generation, protect your salvation at all cost. If you have offended in your speech to any Pastor or Man of God or even your leaders, Ask for forgiveness from God and apologise to them for this is important. Take these wonderful thoughts very seriously and ensure to appropriate them accordingly in your life. God bless you abundantly. Thanks Sarah Akindele for sharing this with us!
#JustForLaughs I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles. Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later and with whom. I give them pictures of my family, my dog and of me gardening, taming things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch and doing what anybody and everybody does everyday. I also listen to their conversations, give them the "thumbs up" and tell them I like them. And it works just like Facebook! I already have four people following me: two police officers, a private investigator and a psychiatrist. 😂😂😂😂😂😂
What A Night! 2017: #TheYearOfFlourishing! As the man of God declared, it is the Year of Flourishing, he went on to explain that this is 1. The year of Luxuriant Growth 2. The year of Significant Attainment (news making attainment) 3. The year of Persistent Productivity Two important things this year: Last year we spoke in tongues like never before. This year, you will Flourish with Tongues 1 Corinthians 14:4 “He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself...” You want to improve yourself? speak in tongues. When you do so you'd become sensitive to the spiritual realm. Your spirit will become sensitive to spiritual realities; sensitive to God. Speak in tongues a lot. Jude 1:20 “But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.” Build on your best and highest expression of Faith through praying in the Holy Ghost. By doing this, your faith is purified. Praying in tongues is IMPORTANT. 2017 is your Year of Flourishing. Flourish with Tongues. The second Important thing this Year: Hebrews 11:3 “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Worlds here refers to the way your life is going. "The life and times of a person"; That's an 'AION'. It's a period of time. It's an Era. The eras were framed by the Word of God. The "Rhema" (spoken word) of God. Rhema is the Word which God speaks. All these ones mentioned in this passage of scripture (Faith's Hall of Fame) framed their worlds with the rhema they received from God and corrected their times. The only that's not within your control is the life of another person but everything that concerns you, You have control over. You're going to have to frame your world. How 2017 is going to be will be decided by what you frame. God has already revealed to us what it should be like. Glory! Also, 2017 launches us into a new phase of the battle of the ages. We come from a lineage of champions who despite the mistakes they made all came out victorious. We are entering a new phase and in this new phase, tremendous things are going to happen. Satan is not more wicked than God is gracious. God grace is greater than Satan's wickedness. There are angels that the Lord has dispatched and they are more fierce than the demons manipulating men. In this phase, God is going beyond limits that He has never gone before to win souls. Jesus never asked us to preach the gospel with Words only. He gave us power and we are going to shake the world before He returns. And "Through prosperity shall my cities be spread abroad" You are going to be so wealthy and NOTHING will stop you. This message will cause you to prosper, to be influential and powerful. GLORYYYYY! Pastor Chris: THE LORD HAS BLESSED YOU. HE HAS GIVEN YOU ALL THINGS. HAVE NO FEAR AND NEVER UNDERESTIMATE YOURSELF TAKE THE WORD WITH YOU. KEEP IT IN YOUR HEART. MEDITATE ON IT AGAIN AND AGAIN AND LET IT GAIN ASCENDENCY IN YOUR HEART YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE WORD. THE WORD GAVE BIRTH TO YOU. CHRIST IS IN YOU AND THIS IS YOU YEAR. YOUR YEAR OF FLOURISHING. "It's going to be a happy 2017 for you" - Pastor Chris
