THE SPECIAL THEME IN GOD’S DISCIPLINE IS LOVE! When people hear the Word ‘Discipline, oftentimes, their first thought is on punishment and chastisement. However, our Esteemed Zonal Director, teaching on the ‘Discipline’ aspect of the series: Character, Integrity, Discipline and Excellence, which she began last Wednesday explained that this isn’t always so. Discipline, she explained, is the attempt to improve behavior or orderliness by training, conditions or bringing of specific roles- conditions that are imposed for the improvement of behaviors. The Holy Ghost is a person of discipline, integrity, and order (Genesis 1:1-4), which is why it's important to be in Church because that’s where He has placed the 5-fold ministry gifts over us for the training and discipline of His body that we may be thoroughly trained for His work. The Church is a place for the coaching on the things of the Spirit - to be triumphant and victorious in every circumstance. She added that Discipline isn't only about punishment and chastisement and that the central theme in God's discipline isn’t to destroy, humiliate or embarrass but Love (Revelation 3:19) - to bring up to maturity and perfect discipline. Having this knowledge, do consider the following nuggets from the glorious message: ⭐ God can’t use you or take you from one level of service to another except you're disciplined/trained because training makes you reliable, dependable. Reuben was described as unstable, untrained, and unable to control his appetite- he had all the abilities but couldn't possess, because he lacked the character and character is built through discipline ⭐ Always desire to be a vent for the manifestation of the Spirit because God wants to do big things with you but you have to be ready by way of training. This is because there's an improvement in behavior that's required. ⭐God wants us to mature through the training by His Word- He can stir in you a desire, but the action must come from you (John 7:37-38). No matter your opinion or culture, the final authority must always be the Word of God, because He wants to bring order in your life and He does that through the coaching of His Word. ⭐ As good as being disciplined is, there's a higher level in self-discipline (1 Corinthians 9:24-27). Self-control /self-discipline is a proactive measure to limit the reactive nature from outside sources, which is important because God doesn't want you to lose your crown and His desire is that there'll be a complete manifestation of His life through you — He doesn't want anything holding you back, but wants you to shine very brightly, which is why He's training you (Luke 16:10). ⭐ One of God's principle for advancement is diligence with what you've been given, including your body. Don't wait to be chastened or rebuked, invoke self-discipline on yourself, it prepares you for the next level. ⭐ God desires that when you start something, you finish it; He wants you to be a perfecter, a finisher, one that completes that which is committed to you (Zechariah 4:8-9). #CELVZ

FIRST SERVICE WITH PASTOR AMAECHI UDEAKU; SUNDAY MAY 5, 2019 It was an atmosphere of excitement and full of God's presence as the Man of God taught on a topic: The Mystery Of The Church. He explains that the word church has its root from the word ECCLESIA meaning the chosen ones or the called out ones. The Man of God pointed to the fact that: ¤The church is a spiritual nation ¤The church is a kingdom which comprises of kings and priests ¤The church is a family and that is where all families are suppose to derive purpose from ¤In the church, there is authority, discipline and relationships. ¤When you join a church, you submit to its authority. ¤The authority of the church flows from Jesus Christ and He is the builder of the church. ¤A member of the church is a builder of the church. #TheHappyChurch #CEPHZONE1
4 IMPORTANT ATTRIBUTES OF A SUCCESSFUL CHRISTIAN: CHARACTER, INTEGRITY, DISCIPLINE AND EXCELLENCE. In the house of God, we're trained for life and ministry. This was the case for us as our esteemed Zonal Director began a series on 4 important things required for a successful Christian life; Character, Integrity, Discipline and Excellence. The opening scripture was from 1 Samuel 16:4-7, which showed the prophet Samuel on his way, as directed by God to anoint the next king of Israel. Here, we see that God had previously considered Eliab for the throne but was rejected (verse 7). There are certain character traits a Christian must develop, in addition to being graced and though we are born with excellence in our spirits, it doesn't always translate to excellence. In Genesis 49:4, we also see another example of how God sees people as was the case of Reuben who lost his right of the firstborn even though he had so many talents and abilities. His character however collided with his abilities—his character wasn’t refined enough for the perfect expression of his abilities because he was unstable and couldn't control his passions and his desires. Our Zonal Director admonished us by letting us know that the development and refining of one’s character is a very important spiritual activity one must develop and God has equipped us to do it. Reuben couldn't fulfill God's plan because his character was unstable and uncontrollable. WHAT IS CHARACTER? Character can be defined as the total combination of characteristics and behavior that distinguishes a person or a group. The Holy Spirit in us is an excellent spirit but we have to let it be expressed by our character and character, in turn, is controlled by our minds. This is why we must renew our minds always (Romans 12:2) 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 (NIV, MSG & TLB) tells us about discipline, using the example of an athlete— we know the importance of our own race; unlike the race of the athlete which gives a crown that doesn't last ours is for a crown that lasts forever. “You can't have a successful Christian life without the power of your mind”, our Zonal Director said and she encouraged us to develop a controlled behavior, which comes from exercise, reminding us that Reuben was ordered to stand aside because he refused to train himself. Let these things be in your mind: Character, Integrity, Discipline and excellence and you will live a successful Christian life. We thank our esteemed Zonal Pastor for such a glorious, life-transforming message and we look forward to the rest of these series. #CELVZ
SUNDAY SPECIAL WITH PASTOR GABRIEL OMOROGIEVA Christ Embassy Ibadan North had the privilege of hosting the highly esteemed Regional Pastor of Nigeria South West Region, Pastor Gabriel Omorogieva in a special service tagged "Sunday Special" yesterday, 10th March, 2019. It was an electrifying and expectant atmosphere as the brethren came to receive and be uplifted by God's word. Here are some nuggets from the service: 🔅 I have been initiated into the name of Jesus.. 🔅 The devil is a rat with microphone and he capitalizes on ignorance. 🔅 Your receiving is tied to your capacity. 🔅 Fear disables your natural abilities. 🔅 Living by the word is not optional. 🔅 Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional! 🔅 Happy are you if men are talking of you - How can you be on top and not be a topic! 🔅 God gives seed to the sower not to the Christian! ~ @pastorgabrielo #ceibadannorth #nswvz1 #southwestregion #monthofpossession in #theyearoflights

The high points of the recently concluded Southwest Regional Strategic Conference were the Plenary Sessions with the Regional Pastor. The highly esteemed Pastor Gabriel Omorogieva. He addressed the total well being of a leader in the area of health and finances. He admonished the leaders to work and guard against anything that would militate against their health. Sickness and diseases will reduce speed and distort or distract focus. There must be bodily discipline. In the area of finances, he pointed out that the Pastor is the one who sets the financial tone for the brethren and as a result must be faithful and consistent in giving the tithes, partnership and offerings. The final session of the Conference was inspirational, filled with joy and excitment as the Regional Pastor invited the esteemed Pastor Ewaen Edun and Pastor George Mordi, Group Pastor of CE Ondo, Swvz3, who ministered in prophetic music ministrations that blessed the leaders. The only good and acceptable 'Thank You' we can say to our Man of God, Pastor Chris, is what we do with The Year of Lights, the Regional Pastor concluded. The Conference was indeed a most glorious, inspiring and fulfilling one. #regionalstrategicconferene #swvz1 #swvz2 #swvz3 #southwestregion.
