RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL THE BLESSEDNESS OF GIVING. Monday, December 11th Pastor Chris While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease (Genesis 8:22). One of the most profound principles in the Word of God that guarantees continuous increase in finances is the principle of giving. Not too many people are as excited to give, as they’re to receive, meanwhile the promised blessing isn’t to the receiver but to the give Jesus said"…It is more blessed to give than to receive”(Acts 20:35). 2 Corinthians 9:8 gives us clear insight about the blessedness of the giver. It say “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]” (AMPC). The previous verse says, _*“…God loves (He takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful (joyous, prompt to do it”) giver [whose heart is in his giving].*_ Though the foregoing verses are about finances, Jesus in His sermon on the Mount was more general “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again” (Luke 6:38). He said “Give!” Whatever good thing you desire in your life, sow the seed of it into the lives of others and it’ll be multiplied in your own life. Remember Hi “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them…” (Matthew 7:12). Another thing your giving does is that it helps to increase the fruits of your righteousness: _*“Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness” (2 Corinthians 9:10). Your giving to the Lord connects you and everything that concerns you with blessings that aren’t only for today, but for tomorrow and for all time. Each time you have the opportunity to give, be excited. Our lives as Christians should depict the character of our heavenly Father, who gave His precious Son, Jesus, for our salvation (John 3:16). CONFESSION Thank you precious Father, for blessing me in all things, and making me a blessing to my world. I declare that I’m mightily blessed today as I give, for you’ve said in your Word, it’s more blessed to give, than to receive. Hallelujah! FURTHER STUDY: 2 Corinthians 8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. 2 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. Luke 6:38* Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

I have won many awards but this one was different and very special. Listen to the reason why... About 20 years ago I moved from Benin to Lagos. Before then I had met the guy on my left , Isaiah Samson, in 1994 when he came to my school in UNIBEN. I was thrilled when I saw him play the keyboards and he immediately taught me some strange progressions I never knew existed on the keys. He debunked my style of play and introduced me to 'real playing'. Fast forward to total experience with the man of God pastor Chris years later and Isaiah pushed me to climb the platform and play the keyboards . I reluctantly went up really "scared"...then I started playing alone! Then the guy on my right Raph Daniels shouted and ordered me to leave the stage. Isaiah insisted that I stayed and play. Hmmmm...then the big moment came...Pastor Chris came out!!!😐 I was shaken to my bones. My knees were trembling so much I thought I would fall down. I beckoned to Isaiah to come take over the keyboards but he just stood far away and waved "keep playing". Then the man of God turned to me and started walking towards me singing "Then sings my soul" As he walked closer I prayed for the ground to open so I could sink in and disappear. The prayer wasn't answered. Lol..But then as he got closer I noticed his eyes were full of love and he had a smile on his face. I thought I saw someone else looking at me from inside his eyes. He got very close put his hand on my shoulders and just kept singing. I melted under the power of LOVE. Tears came down my eyes . I never saw love so real. Later Isaiah came up the platform to join me and he remarked "You have just been baptised" lol. Raph Daniels needless to say joined to congratulate me...hehehehe Now several years later we won an award together for making excellent music for our man of God all these years..now you see why it means a lot to me and is entirely a different kind of award. Thanks to all who have helped me all these. years....and thank you my man of God pastor Chris for believing and investing in us. I love you sir. Don't ever talk people down....always talk people up....give hope faith and love!!!

My First Service with the Man of God Pastor Chris Pastor had hired a little hall in an area called Iyaro for fellowship meetings that held in the evenings on a weekday and I was invited to attend one of them by a dear friend at the time. I should mention for clarity that this was before Pastor left Benin to start Christ Embassy in Lagos and before the highly esteemed Rev Tom Amekhienan came to Benin City to Pastor the first Christ Embassy Church on Airport Road. I remember that the message he preached that evening was titled “Using the name of Jesus”. Apart from the fact that Pastor gave so many examples in that message that were so insightful, they were hilarious beyond measure. Pastor talked about people trying to cast out demons and that they would try to cast them into the bottomless pit. Pastor then explained with a hilarious demonstration that the bottomless pit had not been opened and so lots of demons would be wandering around shouting "where do you want us to go"?. I remember that the following week I dragged my mum, Sister and brothers to the meeting to hear what I was hearing and after the service, we bought every message on the tape stand at the back. I recall that I used to literally weep with laughter in each service and played those messages over and over till I wore them out. Some of you who are old school will remember Pastor sharing the testimony of God telling him about his first car, well, it was after one of these services. Pastor had stepped outside the hall with a number of brethren after the meeting and paid for them to take a taxi home. In the next service Pastor shared with us that God told him just afterwards “you just paid for your first car”. It wasn’t long after that that we saw the car. This and so many supernatural occurrences in those days were like water to a man left in the desert. Relating with Pastor was like hearing from Jesus, I remember going to see him after one of the meetings and I asked for an explanation of a verse in the bible from 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 that said, women should keep silent in the church and ask their husbands any questions they had. This was because someone I had invited to the meetings challenged me with those verses about sisters speaking in our meetings. Pastor looked at the verse, smiled and asked me, “what about those without husbands”? That night I considered Pastors question and all I could think of was Kabayo????? What manner of wisdom is this? Another time I went to see him at the new office because one of my uncles, in trying to convince me that the bible was full of errors and untrustworthy and to stop me from quoting Pastor and listening to messages all the time, gave me a book with the title, “The book of Jasher” It was meant to be the long lost book mentioned in 2nd Chronicles that had recently been "rediscovered" and which seemed to suggest inaccuracies in the bible. According to the book, Jashar was a contemporary of Moses, though slightly older based on the book, who went to visit Pharoah with Moses after the burning bush experience. According to the book he was actually the one who Moses instructed to stretch the rod over the Nile rather than Aaron as stated in the bible and even more significantly, was the man who led Israel after Joshua died. Pastor looked at the book, skimmed a few pages and then asked one question, how old would the Jasher mentioned here have needed to be to span those years from before Moses to after Joshua and then lead Israel for several years after the death of Joshua? I did some calculations afterwards and the wisdom of Pastor left me speechless. Besides that, in the light of Pastors answer, I discovered that no major historians like Josephus ever mentioned this Jasher nor was he recognised in the historic works I researched. It was my introduction to Satans frequent failed efforts to discredit God's divine word. Encountering such wisdom and insight from Pastor in my teenage years made it impossible for me to settle for human wisdom afterwards. I must also mention another of Pastor’s messages from those days that had such a great impact on me. That message was called Thoughts. It had 3 parts and was preached by Pastor in Lagos at the beginning of the nineties. I always remember a line from that message where Pastor was teaching about the need to be engaged with your mind when the Lord is moving as opposed to just being blank or unconnected as many thought at the time. Pastor said in line with receiving that, “Even if Jesus fell down from heaven before you and slapped you on your head so you got bald headed instantly, still it wouldn’t work, because your mind is needed”. In that message Pastor also talked about the difference between the thinking of the woman with the issue of blood and the others around her. She was thinking, “if I can touch the hem of his garment I will be healed”. Some others based on their thoughts were arguing with people and saying, “don’t touch him he’s my own”; don’t touch him, he’s my cousin!” Others were thinking, “Jesus, this your woollen cloth, so nice”. In all these thoughts, only one caused the power of God to flow. No one before that had intimated me on the importance of my thoughts as Pastor did. He made me realise that the renewal of the mind was not optional but vital for every Christian. I could go on and on listing examples of all I have seen and heard from Pastor over the last 30 years but I suppose I would take 30 years to do that write up. Pastor Sir, words cannot express the impact you have had in our lives over the decades. What we are celebrating is more than the passage of 30 years. We are celebrating a dispensation, a divine calling, a distribution of unique graces and a coat of many colours. Thank you Pastor for showing us that like Jesus, our starting point, even if its in the Manger, does not define us or our journey. Thank you Sir for proving that even if you start with Straw, you would end up with Gold. Thank you Sir for being the proof of this statement, what you have is enough. Thank you Pastor for yielding to such a great calling and creating a platform that has enabled us fulfil Gods dream for us individually and collectively. I love you Sir. 📣 IF YOU ENJOYED THIS, PLEASE LIKE & RE-SHARE, AND FOLLOW OUR SUPER-USER ACCOUNT FOR MORE ARTICLES LIKE THIS #BLWCelebrates30Years #PastorChukaSpeaks #UKVZ1
