Prayer at 12noon and 10pm (Local/GMT) - Mon Aug 7 We had a wonderful time of fellowship at the Global Communion Service yesterday. There was so much to learn and enjoy as we listened to the panelists and watched the video highlights of recent programs. The Lord be praised forevermore. Amen. This month of August is the Month of the Shining Light. Jesus said you're the Light of the world; therefore this month has been specially appointed of the Lord to bless you as you shine for His glory. See highlights of the service on the Loveworld News app or visit http://loveworldnews.com to download it. God bless you. Luke 9.29 declares that as Jesus prayed, "the appearance of His countenance was altered, and His raiment became dazzling white [ flashing with the brilliance of lightning]. Obviously, something happens in our spirit, soul and body when we pray in the Holy Ghost. We'll pray in tongues for all 15min at 12noon and 10pm (Local/GMT). God bless you.
A SCRIPTURE A DAY 2 Corinthians 4:18 – “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” What you see in life is very important. Sometimes, when people are faced with challenges, they tend to focus on every other things apart from God’s Word. Once you speak the Word, the power of God begins to work in that situation, even if you don’t physically see any change. So, rather than looking for the pain in your body or checking to see if the growth is getting smaller, maintain your focus on the Word and what God is doing in your body or in that situation. His Word always prevails; the issue is not the problem, it is how you see the problem. What do you see? #ascriptureaday #thewordinyourmouth #healingtothenations
RE: WORDS OF PROPHECY BY REV. (DR.) CHRIS OYAKHILOME. We will continue to outdo our past... We are going to demonstrate the glory of God in our lives. The little one shall become a thousand. Our message, our lives are springing forth from Isaiah 60:1 to the end. Read and see what God has said concerning us. That's where we are living in right now, and we're moving with it... He has sent us as lights into the nations of the world. If you thought that God has done great things in your life before now, hear what the Lord is saying: PROPHECY: I will do a new thing... by the mighty hand of God, you will see miraculous interventions of the Spirit in your life and in your affairs. Tell my children "I want to do them good. Tell them "it is my joy to do them good, even in simple matters of life". Everything you don't want will stop, and everything you want will flow. We are moving... Money will hear your voice. For the world is coming to a climax of a confused state. The world is coming to a season of fear, doubt and unbelief. But God is saying, I have raised my children with my Word. the financial systems of the world will go into chaos. For those that do know their God, they shall be strong and do exploits. As we journey into the coming year, fear not to give God your tithe, first fruit, offering...it is your security. For the powers of the world shall be shaken saith the Lord, and there shall be a great fear. And many that were high shall be brought low, and they shall wonder and say, "how did this happen"? Many shall wonder and say How did this happen? But your light is come, and the glory of God is risen upon you. When men shall say where is help? You shall say "I am help". When men shall say where is God? You shall say "He sent me to you". For there shall be great fear and great confusion all around the world. But my glory shall be seen all around my children. For their light shall shine brightly, and even more brightly, saith the Lord.

WHAT GOD REWARDS Pastor Chris Always, I pray to God to guide my heart in His Word and help me please Him more. This is what you should be most concerned with as a Christian: how to please God and ensure your heart goes after Him. I'm not talking about the works of righteousness because if you're a Christian then you're expected to produce works of righteousness. God wouldn't reward you for doing right; you're supposed to do right. What you are rewarded for is the impact you made in the lives of others and for the life that you lived toward God in your love for Jesus Christ. God rewards us for our COMMITMENT to SOUL-WINNING, our GIVING for the ADVANCEMENT of the KINGDOM WORK, and for every SACRIFICE of our TIME, TALENT and ENERGY to move the GOSPEL of our Lord Jesus Christ forward. The Bible says, "and they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever." (Daniel 12:3). I share this truth with you today because I want you to be conscious of the end of all things ("For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad" - 2 Corinthians 5:10) . You can decide now the type of reward you want to receive from God; you can determine it. Just as a builder can determine the quality of the house he wants to build right from the beginning, even before he starts. You must make up your mind to be a blesser of lives; you must touch lives with the gospel of the Lord Jesus and achieve vision400. God bless you. #vison400 #NCRegion
HOW TO EFFECTIVELY COMMUNICATE Communication plays a very important role in achieving vision 400 and having an effective global soul winning day coming up on Saturday 1st of July. Your ability to effectively communicate is key to success and the following will enable you become an excellent communicator. 1. Build the relationship first - always When a great communicator approaches an audience, he/she takes the time to say, “good morning” and “how’s your day going?” “Trust you had a most excellent night rest? etc". The effect of the relationship-building forays is incalculable. 2. Friendliness Through a friendly tone, a personal question, or simply a smile, you will encourage your audience to engage in open and honest communication with you. It's important to be nice and polite. Learn to use the word "KINDLY". 3. Clarity and Concision Good communication means saying just enough - don't say too little or talk too much. Try to convey your message in as few words as possible. Say what you want clearly and directly. If you ramble on, your listener will either tune you out or will be unsure of exactly what you want. Think about what you want to say before you say it; this will help you to avoid talking excessively and/or confusing your audience. 4. Confidence It is important to be confident in all of your interactions with others. Confidence ensures your listener that you believe in and will follow through with what you are saying. Exuding confidence can be as simple as making eye contact or using a firm but friendly tone (avoid making statements sound like questions). Of course, be careful not to sound arrogant or aggressive. Be sure you are always listening to and empathizing with the other person. 5. Nonverbal Communication Your body language, eye contact, hand gestures, and tone all color the message you are trying to convey. A relaxed, open stance (arms open, legs relaxed), and a friendly tone will make you appear approachable, and will encourage others to speak openly with you. Eye contact is also important; you want to look the person in the eye to demonstrate that you are focused on the person and the conversation (however, be sure not to stare at the person, which can make him or her uncomfortable). Also pay attention to other people's nonverbal signals while you are talking. Often, nonverbal signals convey how a person is really feeling. For example, if the person is not looking you in the eye, he or she might be uncomfortable or hiding the truth. Know when someone is tired or in an hurry and decide on how best you can convey your message or book another appointment. 6. Avoid argument Being a good listener is one of the best ways to be a good communicator and helps avoid argument. You can only get what you give. Keep an open mind to know how best to answer questions but avoid questions that stirs up argument. Be wise, be diplomatic and tactfully handle such scenes. God bless you! Upnext: Your Appearance For Soul Winning - You are addressed the way you dress. #NCRegion
YOUR APPEARANCE FOR SOUL WINNING During soul winning, it better to look SMART than STYLISH. For you to be well dressed means you are properly and righly dressed for the occasion. That is, you are not overdressed or underdressed. NEATNESS: A soul winner should always be neat. Have a great hair do as a lady and as a guy, a nice haircut won't hurt. Your clothes should be clean and if needed, it should be properly ironed. Your shoe should also be well cleaned and polished. I won't recommend you going out on Saturday looking too official. A casual appearance is most appropriate considering the fact that you are physically engaged during soul winning. A pair of heel is not ideal for you ladies, but it is still up to you. BREATH: One thing that will hurt more than most anything else in soul winning is bad breath. Ensure your mouth is properly washed regularly. This can't be substituted. I would also suggest that you carry mints or chewing gums with you to keep fresh breathe. Gum is good if you can chew it when no one sees you. You also have the option of using mouth wash if it can be afforded or better still use a natural and cheaper way of preventing bad breathe. This is achieved by holding a slice of cucumber between your tongue and the roof of your mouth for about 90 seconds. BODY ODOUR: A soul winner ought to also watch his/her body smell. This is tremendously important. Use body deodorant and perfumes. If you don't have one, then it is time to get some. STYLE: Know your personal style. Personal style is something that each of us has, we just have to identify it, understand it, and then live it. It projects your mood, personality and you as a whole, reflecting your personal interests, lifestyle and inspirations. ● Fit is key. ● Don't go overboard with accessories. ● Pay attention to details. Make sure that the clothes are flattering on you and colors and patterns are balanced. Your makeup also play a role in your overall look. In all, bear it in mind that you are the King's kid, so dress and represent who you are and where you come from. It is the BLW Exceptionalism. This is war! #Vision400 #WorldSoulWinningDay #NCRegion
PRUDENT STRATEGIES FOR BUSINESS EXPANSION According to our Man of God Pastor “the hardship in the world is not there for you, this flood of economy disaster and destruction is not because of you, Jesus Christ is our ark and we are sustained in Him”. Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to PROFIT, Who leads you by the way you should go...” - Isaiah 48:17 (NKJV) Here are six prudent business expansion strategies that will help you expand your business and still maintain your current business: 1. Add New Products And Services This strategy sounds relatively simple, but executing it well can be challenging. You need to figure out which products and services your customers want, and how much they’ll be willing to pay for them. The new product or service should be of related demand with your existing products or services. “The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty.” Proverbs 21:5 (NKJV) As our Man of God Pastor Chris said “prudence is practical wisdom that is applicable every day and at anytime, it is the ability to make wise choices”. The best way to accomplish this is to conduct thorough market survey before committing any resources (financial and human) to new product or service expansion. Ask your current customers what they think about your new product and service ideas, including potential price points. Your market research needs to focus on customer demand for new products and services and your cost to manufacture, deliver, and sell them. 2. Target New Customer Markets. Most businesses target their sales and marketing efforts to specific customer markets based on demographics like age, gender, and location or psychographics like interests, activities, and values. But are there other customer markets that might also be viable for your products and services? "When you do business, learn all about the business, learn financial intelligence, get information; divine information (ginosko) and of course the physical information (gnosis) for the business, if you don't, you will struggle." Being able to reach the right target customers through the right mediums, at the right time, is the first step to expanding your business into new customer markets”. When expanding into new target markets, you need to ramp up your advertisement to these markets. Packaging and exceptional excellence is key. 3. Expand Into New Territories “Any enterprise is built by wise planning, becomes strong through common sense, and profits wonderfully by keeping abreast of the facts.” Proverbs 24:3-4 (TLB) The idea here is to market and sell your existing products and services to new customers. These new customers can be in different segments or niches or different locations from where you currently operate. If yours is a retail or storefront business, this type of expansion will likely involve opening new locations in different geographic areas whether across town or across the country. Doing so will require a significant investment of both time and money, so perform thorough market research first to make sure there is enough customer demand in the new territory to justify the expansion. Good advertisement is necessary here. 4. Use The Internet And Technology The Internet is the best example of how a new sales and delivery channel can transform a small business. Countless companies have reinvented themselves to take advantage of online opportunities — from brick-and-mortar retailers opening online stores to service providers who are able to reach a much broader audience by advertising online and using search engine optimization (SEO) techniques to rank highly in Web searches conducted by the prospective customers. Take advantage of ministry platforms such as KingsChat, KingsConference, SuperUser account and KingsPay (link: https://kingschatforum.com/d/81-how-to-collect-payments-using-kingspay). Design e-business card and send it to your Kingschat contacts, hold online meetings using KingsConference etc. Technological changes can either help your business grow or hurt your expansion goals. For example, upgrading your business facility with advanced technologies can increase your efficiency and also expand your operations. However, being the last in your industry to sense where things are going with technology, say you are the last to adopt modern accounting software, can erode your base. So, try to keep up with the latest technology and decide on which types of technology are right for your business. 5. Acquire Another Business "Two can accomplish more than twice as much as one, for the results can be better. If one fails, the other pulls him up; but if a man falls when he is alone, he's in trouble" Ecclesiastic 4:9-10 (NLT) Perhaps the most aggressive growth and expansion strategy is to buy a company that makes products related to yours. If you cannot acquire another business, perhaps you can arrange to merge with it or collaborate with someone of trust (likely a brethren) to acquire it together. According to our Man of God Pastor Chris “When you want to do business, ask for investments, let people invest in what you are doing, don’t ask for money, let them invest in you and invest in what you do.” However, it is important that you observe due diligence and consult with stakeholders, mentors, business associations and other available sources like books and magazines before merging or acquiring a business. Focus on the company’s financial condition, the strength and depth of its management team, the breadth of its client base, and the soundness of existing contracts. When considering companies to possibly acquire, look for synergies between the two businesses that will result in the combined entity being stronger than either of the individual businesses would be standing on their own. You must look for opportunities to invest and you have to be wise and be guided by the Spirit of God. The condition of the economy doesn’t have to dictate your business growth and expansion plans. Let God's word rule your mind. Lastly, be conscious that as you expand in your business sphere, you are directly expanding your world of contact. Don’t forget you are first a Christian before a businessman. You are a CHRISTIAN BUSINESSMAN and you expand with vision400. Every new customer is a potential soul to be won. God bless you. #NCRegion
Prayer at 12noon and 10pm ((Local/GMT) - Wed July 20 All things are possible to him who believes. Learn more in today's Rhapsody. Download your July edition from http://rhapsodyofrealities.org if you don't have one. Ephesiand 6:18-20, "Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak". At 12noon and 10pm (Local/GMT), we'll pray fervidly in the spirit for most of 15min, and for ministers of the gospel facing severe persecutions around the world and Christians who have been incarcerated for their faith in Christ. Pray that they be strengthened by the Holy Ghost, standing firm in faith.

Amen. Remember to attend the midweek service today onsite or online. God bless you.
A SCRIPTURE A DAY EPHESIANS 6:18 (AMP) – “Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).” Interceding for others is something you do regularly, not when it's convenient, but as a ministry. You should be effective in changing other people's lives through prayers. Intercessory prayer isn't something you're casual about; your desire for a change in that person's situation should keep you determined and have you on the watch to see it happen. It could take days, weeks, months, but don't stop; keep praying, because the value of the one you're interceding for is the life of Jesus. So, when you take up a matter concerning another believer, and you're praying, you're not wasting time; you're causing a changing in the realm of the Spirit. #ascriptureaday #thewordinyourmouth #healingtothenations
