THE BENEFITS OF FORGIVING OTHERS BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, until seven times: but, until seventy times seven (Matthew 18:21-22) When you forgive, you're the one who benefits. Not to forgive places you at a serious disadvantage and as a child of God, you should act like your heavenly father, who never recalls your offences. The first benefits of forgiving others is that you keep the door firmly closed against the devil. When you don't forgive, you open the door to bitterness and malice, both of which are satan's keys to entering a person's life. The Bible says "If you become angry, do not let your anger lead you into sin, and do not stay angry all day. Don't give the devil a chance" (Ephesians 4:26-27 GNB) The second benefit of forgiving others is that when you do, the power of God in your life continues to flow unhindered. Remember that God is love and His power functions in the atmosphere of love. But when you don't forgive others, malice can creep in, which can short-circuit the power of God in your life. This was what happened to the Prophet Elisha in the Bible (2 Kings 3). Elisha was so angry and bitter against the King of Israel that he couldn't hear what the Spirit was saying. He had to call for a musician to play so that the annointing could come on him. Lastly, forgiving others will keep you in good health! People who harbour unforgiveness in their hearts are susceptible to sickness and disease. The bitterness in their hearts affects their physical bodies and manifests as infirmity. The reason some people are sick and miss out on God's blessings is that they refuse to forgive. So, make up your mind to always forgive those who have wronged you. If you forget how good God has been to you, you may find it difficult to forgive others when wronged. But when you appreciate the mercy you received from the Lord you'll find it easier to have mercy and forgive others when they've wronged you. #ministry #blessings #wehavemoved #affirmationtrain #talkingsession
God wants to talk to you through the Holy Spirit inside of you. He doesn't want you to be an old testament Christian. When you study the scriptures you'll become acquainted with the Spirit behind the scriptures . ~PCO #monthofuplifting #liftchallenge
NOTES FROM YOUR LOVEWORLD WITH OUR MAN OF GOD, TEACHER & LIFE COACH, REV. CHRIS OYAKHILOME DSc., DD 7 THINGS TO HELP YOU GROW IN THE LORD 1. DESIRE & STUDY THE WORD; FEED ON IT ~ Create an appetite for the word of the lord 1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: Don't Expect It To Come By Itself. Desire, Cultivate It, It May Not Be Spontaneous. 2. WALK WITH THOSE WHO LOVE THE LORD 2 Timothy 2:22 Run from anything that gives you the evil thoughts that young men often have, but stay close to anything that makes you want to do right. Have faith and love, and enjoy the companionship of those who love the Lord and have pure hearts. ~ That is the kind of friendship that you should have. 3. BE FILLED CONSTANTLY WITH THE SPIRIT Romans 12:11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord 1Thessalonians 5:19 KJV Quench Not The Spirit ~ Things you can do to keep yourself lifely always Eph 5:18-20 KJV And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Psalm 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4. REACHOUT TO WIN SOULS ~ Jesus came to seek and save the lost ~ Go ye therefore and preach the gospel Proverbs 11:30 KJV The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. ~ Every soul winner is always on God's plan everyday 5.

SET YOUR MIND ON SPIRITUAL THINGS Proverbs 2:20-21KJV That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous. For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it Collosians 3:1-3 KJV 1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. ~ SET YOUR LIKES, YOUR PASSIONS, YOUR INTERESTS ON GOD Romans 8:5-9KJV 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 7.

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! #liftchallenge

Still on the meeting with the Man of God, Pastor Chris last Night... Amongst other beautiful things that the Man of God taught on, he taught on how to stay healthy. -As you speak in tongues, it gets to a point your Spirit is charged, like a battery, this charging affects your body as you do this all the time. -He also said be aggressive if you feel anything contrary to Gods provisions for you in Christ. Don't consider anything small, speak in tongues loud, rebuke that thing; rebuke the devil. Do not allow anything of the devil stay for even one moment, not even a headache. Then the man of God said, a lot of times headaches have to do with bad pillows, change your pillows, get new ones and also drink lots of water. Muscle aches and pains are caused most times because of lack of water. The man of God admonished us to drink at the least 5 glasses of water everyday and if you're already experiencing these pains, drink 6-7 glasses of water everyday and you will begin to see the difference... Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. John 14:30 KJV Zero tolerance for the devils manifestations. Do not allow any day for the devil. Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 1:2 KJV Practice God's Word. #PastorChrisintheUnitedKingdom #SpecialMeetingwithPastorChris #unitedkingdom

I’m seated together with Christ in the place of power, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that’s named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come! I function from a place of glory, power, authority, and dominion, separated from the debilitating effects of sin, corruption and darkness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. #ism #SpeaktheWord #PastorChris
