Pastor Lanre.....Daniel 2:18-28 Daniel 2:28 "But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these...." Daniel said there's a God in heaven who reveals secrets. We have a weapon; as Christians we have a God that delights in our prayers. This is what we are doing this week. We have the advantage. Maybe there's a confusion or darkness in the situation you're in right now. But you can pray. This year we have supernatural supply, strength, abilities, insight, wisdom, knowledge, and health. Supernatural Knowledge helps us know things we didn't learn in the place of PRAYER. in the place of PRAYER we will fetch INSIGHT, WISDOM. That communication with divinity is constant not until we kneel to pray even as we communicate with others. Through PRAYER we see visions. #PRAYINGNOW #Kenya #Canada
Pastor Tony Martinez...."Many things around us provoke us within to pray for their salvation. It is a deep urge that wells within us to pray for the young people. The gospel is the power of God unto salvation, sound health, to those that believe. We pray for more grace to do more with less time. I thank God for this year of the supernatural where we will achieve in one year 10 years accomplishments. The hearts of people filled with rebellious thoughts and questions against God; through prayer we destroy the strongholds, arguments are cast down and this is through PRAYER. What we permit is permitted what we forbid is forbidden!!! #PRAYINGNOW #Kenya #Canada
BEAUTIFUL THINGS ABOUT PRAYER YOU NEED TO KNOW. 1. When you pray you see visions 2. You receive direction 3. Driving force 4. Focus 5. Resources (human / financial resources) are channeled towards you. POSITIONS OF PRAYER 1. LYING DOWN: when you lie down to pray, it’s a position of prayer of worship/praise. 2. KNEELING DOWN: Kneeling down to prayer is the best position to take, when you have an issue to settle. God can't bear to see his children kneeling before him and not respond to them fast. 3. STANDING: A position of authority. You stand to issue command and declarations. Hallelujah! @PastorChris at PRC2016 #blwghzone

AT THE IPPC 2017... Pastor Vale Odu-Thomas - Keeping Your Vineyard (Keeping Your Heart) "There are things that reduce us as a weapons for God. Humility increases grace and our effectiveness as weapons in the hand of God. There are routine things you do to maintain your car, it is the same in the spiritual realms". This was how Esteemed Pastor Vale Odu-Thomas started his great message on keeping your vineyard. He read Proverbs 4:23 to drive home his point “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” "Guard your heart with all diligence. Not every thought that comes to you should be meditated upon. Some are fiery darts to reduce your effectiveness. It's important to keep your vineyard. There are things that should not stay there over night before they start producing other sins". In admonishing the delegates who listened with rapt attention, Pastor Vale stated that the partners must cleanse and wash themselves with the word of God after hearing words that could defile them. He reminded the partners who received these uncommon words that they are targets for the devil because they are partners with our Man of God and with the ministry and advised that when money comes to them, their first thought should be how to give it. Quoting 1 Timothy 4:15, Pastor Vale showed how important it is for each partner to guard their hearts. “Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.” #IPPC2017 #BLWCelebrates30years #CRVZ #TEAMCALABARROCKS

THE INTEGRITY OF THE WORD 1: PSALM 23 THE LORD MY SHEPHERD The Lord is my Pastor (caretaker, protector, pilot, influence), I can never lack or want for any good thing, I have everything I need. I am super abundantly supplied and provided for. He orchestrates and I have, never-before-fathomed Grace, Favour, Blessings, Opportunities for the out shining of His Glory in my life. Always He works all things out in my favour. I am led and guided by Him through and in the best case scenarios because of His integrity and His reputation so that my life honors and brings glory to Him; My soul (mind) is influenced, reconstructed, transformed, renovated, rebuilt and recultured through the Power and integrity of His Holy Word. Though I may be confronted with or challenged by or simply dared by or walk through life's valley of mirages, false, lying, fake, travesty pretentious news, situations or circumstances, I declare in consent with God's truth that i am more than a conqueror through Him that loves me. Through the greater one who lives in me, in faith i challenge, quell and stare down all lying wonders, transcient unrealities and defeated schemings and manipulations of the adversary. For Lord, your presence is always with me; I am mantled and protected with your presence and in your loving arms, your correction, protection and guidance are always my consolation, relaxation, serenity, tranquility, opulence and prosperity. I sit confidently assured by your Grace, unperturbed in your banquet of opportunities, possibilities, honor, promotion, progress in the presence of those who do not trust in, rely on or believe in you. I am consecrated, ordained and crowned by you with grace and favor, unrestrained, unapologetic and inexplicable. Surely righteousness, prosperity, abundance, divine health, virtue, moral rectitude, mercy, decency, truth and compassion, forgiveness, generosity, magnanimity are my portion all the days of ma life. And I live, abide, reside and lodge in Your house all the days of ma life, forever even until eternity....Psalm 23:1-6 (PtaD Translation)⚘❤👑🌏 AMEN!! AMEN!! AMEN!!
Springtime: Joel 2:21-27 (NIV) 21 Do not be afraid, land of Judah; be glad and rejoice. Surely the Lord has done great things! 22 Do not be afraid, you wild animals, for the pastures in the wilderness are becoming green. The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their riches. 23 Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before. 24 The threshing floors will be filled with grain; the vats will overflow with new wineand oil. 25 “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten— the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm[a]— my great army that I sent among you. 26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed. 27 Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the Lord your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed.
REV. TOM: GREAT MAN, GREAT WORDS From Pastor T.T. Edun When the stories of our lives have been written and compiled, one name would recur again and again in the chronicles: Rev. Tom Amenkhienan. For some strange reason, which I've never researched, I first heard him referred to as the "big man from Texas". This was even before I ever set eyes on him. He was coming to minister at the UNIBEN "Ugbowo" campus fellowship of the ministry. It was going to take place on a Wednesday night. I was new. Everybody who knew him was very excited. All I gleaned from anyone I asked about him was that he was big, tall and "larger than life". Oh boy, they were absolutely spot on! When he came, he was different. I hadn't heard or seen Pastor Chris or Pastor Ken (as Rev. Ken was then known) as at the time. At least, not as they had now become (Pastor Chris, as a high school student, came to collect cartons of Gideon Bibles from my dad back in the days. Being the "unofficial" keeper of the gates at home, I always opened the gates for him to enter and Rev. Ken was in the same high school as myself) since I last saw them. Rev. Tom (or Pastor Tom as he then was) was different from all of us in UNIBEN. He dressed differently. He spoke differently. This was 1988. He didn't look like a student. He looked like a Texan. At least, who I assumed a Texan would look like since I hadn't met any. Big, Tall, Reliable. His accent, while not American, was cultured. His diction was excellent and his elocution, mesmerising. He was wearing a yellow, short sleeved shirt tucked into a pair of black trousers with a black wetlooks belt and a pair of matching black wetlooks shoes. His belt buckle was a belt buckle worthy of being called a belt buckle!!! Rev. Tom looked like a million $ and he spoke like a million $. Maybe that's why he assumed that all of us present, each, had a million $ in our pockets. Even if we didn't, which we didn't, we all believed we did when he was through speaking to us!! Rev. Tom told us that the gospel had brought us into millions through the work of Christ. I still remember what I heard that night because it was a severe culture shock to me. I had grown up in a Christian home with both parents "tongues talking". I had given my life to Christ in 1979 (the 1st of many "givings"). I entered UNIBEN in October of '87 and had joined the ministry (the last of my "giving" my life to Christ) just before Easter Campmeeting of '88 which Rev. Tom had come to sensitise us about as we were the hosting fellowship and campus. I was jolted repeatedly that night as Rev. Tom told us about our financial wealth in Christ. Previously, all I had heard of was the evil of money. How Christians must run from money. But here was a preacher who was telling us to have it!! He looked like he had it. Lots of it. And I believed him. Finally, Rev. told us that wealthy people didn't ride pillion on motorcycle taxis (aka okadas), student or not, neither did they enter rickety buses to seat at the back. He told us to be classy because we are millionaires. We should maintain our class in everything we do even if we are labelled arrogant by others. Don't eat corn and pear or groundnuts while walking on the road. Neither ice cream nor fast foods nor drink anything while walking on the road. Get to your room first. Do all things with dignity. Amazing!!! I never climbed an "okada" from that day onwards (with one exception which was with Rev. Tom's express instruction. That adventure is another day's discussion). Since those halcyon days of yesteryears till the present halcyon days of today that I've become a close associate of Rev. Tom (God has been very good to me), he has impacted, imparted, inspired, motivated, guided and taught me in so many ways. Many people don't know that Rev. Tom is incredibly funny (he wrote a song for me when I was ASG titled "ogbonge Pastor") and very endearing. But there's one thing that I want to say that he has indelibly seared into my spirit: In public and in private, in speaking and in discussions, in seriousness and in joking, Rev. Tom always speaks, consistently, God's Word. I've never heard Rev. Tom talk lack or as though anything is impossible. Never. Not once. Big figures. Big goals. Big health. Big visions. Big tasks. Everything positive. Everything is possible. It's just amazingly inspiring. Since 1991 when Rev. Dr. Chris Oyakhilome appointed me into the CEC (God has indeed blessed me and is favorably gracious to me), bringing me into proximity with Rev. Tom, I've never heard any word spoken inconsistent with God's provision for us in Christ Jesus. In 25 years. Little wonder the amazing success that Rev. Tom is. Modelled on his (and our) Father, Teacher, Leader and Pastor, Rev. Dr. Chris Oyakhilome. Rev. Tom Amenkhienan, sir, thank you for the impact that you have made in our lives through your service and devotion to our Man of God. We have learnt through you and we are better today because of this. Thank you and Happy Birthday sir. Pastor T.T. Edun CEC Member, Virtual Zonal Pastor, South South 1 Virtual Zone 1 #R815 #vision400 #I_Am_Shining #NCRegion
