Don’t be Like Lot’s Wife, Pastor Warns Delegates Without total devotion and commitment to the gospel, distractions will set in, and with that comes doubt. This was the submission of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome during his teaching after the opening ceremony of the International Pastor’s and Partners Conference as he admonished delegates on the importance of focusing on Jesus. Taking the delegates through the deep secrets and insights into the word of God, Pastor noted that serving God becomes laborious without total devotion to the Lord. He reminded them that serving God has responsibilities and it is not possible to serve God without total devotion. "Let the Lord be the center of everything you do. Seek to please Him, not yourself. Make that personal decision how you want to serve God", he said. Using the story of Lot’s Wife to highlight the impediments that comes from halfhearted commitment, he warned them not to look back in their devotion to the Lord. "Don't look back on this journey. Don't compare yourself to your non-ministry friends. The ministry didn't cost you anything but it gave you everything. Don't think of the earthly things you would have acquired. Remember Lots wife. She could not be saved even when God sent angels to save them". He added, noting that to fully appreciate the God, one’s heart, time and resources must be totally devoted to him.
IT'S OUR MONTH OF BLESSINGS. BE BLESSINGS CONSCIOUS ~ PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The LORD bless thee, and keep thee (Numbers 6:23-24). As Christians, we’ve been called to a life of blessings; we’re to walk in blessings, speak and manifest blessings every day and everywhere. Imagine walking into your home, office, classroom, or board meeting, speaking blessings! The Bible adjures us to render blessings, for that’s our calling (1 Peter 3:9). It’s like what the Lord said to Aaron and his sons, the priests. He commanded them to pronounce blessings on the children of Israel, even though the children of Israel were His own people. The Jews today are inarguably some of the most successful people in the world, because of their consciousness of the blessings of God. They teach their children, and their children’s children to speak blessings, and be conscious of blessings. The blessings upon the Jews are, however, not as glorious as the blessings upon the Church—the new creation. Yet, because not many in the Church have been adequately taught how to bless and receive blessings, we haven’t seen much results in this regard. For example, when we say to someone, “God bless you.” To some people, it’s a mere religious platitude that doesn’t mean much. However, to the spiritually enlightened, it’s an invocation of something supernatural. Why would God instruct Aaron and his sons to bless the children of Israel, who were already a blessed people? It’s because the pronouncement of blessings activates the power for the blessings to work. He told the priests what to say in pronouncing blessings on the people; it’s in Numbers 6:24-27; study and meditate on it. Even today, they still speak those words of blessings. Now you understand why anything they do prospers. In your life, be blessings conscious. When you’re in Church, for example, and the minister of God stretches forth his hands or pronounces blessings, receive with your spirit. Blessings flow through our hands and from our words. The words of blessings spoken into your life have power; they actually guide your life and lead you in the path that God wants you to go. #divine #blessings #ministry #uplifting #wehavemoved ##ippc2019 #affirmationtrain #talkingsession

7 OUTWORKINGS OF GRACE BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME DSc DD. The Grace of God can be seen in what it produces; as much as Grace is a divine working on the inside of a man, it manifests itself on the outside of a man in diverse ways: below are seven out workings of grace in a man’s life. 1. ACCEPTABILITY. There always is something about a man/woman with Grace that attracts people to him/her. Grace singles you out; they just don’t know why they are attracted towards you. Grace has got nothing to do with one’s status, profession or gender. You can turn on grace in your life; God gives you more Grace as you put to use the Grace He already made available to you. Grace causes nature to respond to you and there are levels of Grace at which different Christians function. It should be your desire to function at the highest level of Grace possible. 2. THE ADVANTAGE. Grace brings and gives you the Advantage. As a Christian, you need to ALWAYS be conscious of the Grace of God upon your life, this is what makes it work and you need to recognize that you have got grace working for you. You do not need to struggle for/with anything in your life, if you put the Grace to work, it will deliver them to you, on a platter. Hallelujah! Grace is the glory of God working in a man’s spirit and it beautifies. Only the man with Grace recognizes Grace. Never try to work against Grace in a man’s life; one who does it, fights against the Source of Grace; Deity. 3. FAVOUR. Grace brings you FAVOUR. Good is turned towards the man with Grace and forgiveness always knocks at his door. Even when he seems to have made great mistakes, the Grace of God speaks for him. To walk in Grace means to walk in and with divine influence. It makes you have the mentality of “if I want anything, I will get it!” You are God’s trophy, and He wants everyone in the world to know how much he loves you. He is the ‘I am’ and you are the ‘in Him’. There is no need for the struggles and the worry wrinkles. Grace is available to deliver favour to you. Favour that comes by Grace comes by divine influence. Hallelujah! All He says is “yield to my Word” . 4. JOY. Grace brings about Joy; joy indescribable and unspeakable. As a Christian walking in grace, let Joy work out through your life. When you take advantage of grace, the world will not be able to explain how you are always up there. Where they let worries and the cares of this life control them, they do not understand how you have become a distributor of joy. With grace in your life, you become dauntless even in seemingly difficult situations. When challenges come to you look inwards for the solution, because you know that: THE BIGGER THE PROBLEM, THE BIGGER THE TESTIMONY. 5. LIBERALITY. Grace brings LIBERALITY into your life. You have got to recognize that Grace opens a two-way channel; it is called giving and a receiving channel. Recognize that giving is a Grace. When Grace opens up that passion to give; it also opens up your CAPACITY to receive. 6. PLEASURE. Grace brings about PLEASURE. Do you know that Pleasure comes spiritually and that you can take pleasure in all that God has created? Your life is for Him; recognizing this makes everything in your life pleasurable and yet pleasing to God. Now, Grace brings about a kind and happy pleasure that should make you appreciate the people and the things in your life. 7. GIFT. Grace brings GIFTs into your life. Grace brings about an uncanny ability to do what others cannot do. This can manifest itself by form of a skill, quality and understanding of certain areas. It’s important that you recognize the gift of God upon you and put it to use, it makes God’s power to come upon it. #uplifting #liftchallenge #affirmationtrain #talkingsession #wehavemoved
IT'S OUR MONTH OF MINISTRY. PRESERVE YOUR FAMILY BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. (God Blesses Your Family Through You) Genesis 45:4-7 CEV “…I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt. Don’t worry or blame yourselves for what you did. God is the one who sent me ahead of you to save lives. There has already been a famine for two years, and for five more years no one will plow fields or harvest grain. But God sent me on ahead of you to keep your families alive and to save you in this wonderful way.” Every human person belongs to a biological family. As an individual, you have a responsibility towards your own family, and you must understand that no matter the kind of family you hail from, it isn’t a mistake that you were born there. Your birth was divinely orchestrated by God. If that’s the case, then your job is to turn the situation around in your family. As a child of God, you have the power to change hopeless situations. It makes no difference that your family is poverty-stricken; or that family members are prone to some terminal disease; or that disharmony is the order of the day; you have the power as a Christian to put a stop to all these. Stand your ground and see to it that poverty, death, or rancour doesn’t continue in your family. Make up your mind to be highly successful and prosperous, so you can empower others. You’re a light to your family, because Christ lives in you. Therefore, take His message of life to them and watch their lives transform. #ministry #blessed #champion #uplifting #affirmationtrain #talkingsession #wehavemoved
📜I TESTIFY - DIVINE HEALTH AND DIVINE LIFE WORKS!! "The prognosis about your health situation may seem dire, but your status is that you have the very life and nature of God, and divine health is at work in you NOW! This must be clear to you. And once you act on that truth, the health situation will change" - Today's ROR. After the September Global Communion service and enjoying the priviledge of being in the studio with our dear MOG Pastor Chris, I got back home rejoicing," It is my month of uplifting". I was very perfect in my Spirit, soul and body till I woke up the next morning.... The next morning, after the Word had gone forth then cometh the devil. I could barely walk, my lower back to my right leg was wrapped in excruciating pain with my toes tingling. I said to myself," You came too late! This body is Christ's headquarters and the temple of the Holy Spirit". I made up my mind that I was going to put Pastor's most recent teaching about Divine Health to work. So I put on my joggers, armed with Pcdl teaching The Integrity of the Word and my ear piece; went for a 4 km walk with the pain. I was talking Speaking and praying in tongues at the same time. Throughout that week every morning I went for my 4km walk again and again - Talking to my body to comply, I said that this body is clothed with Christ and the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead has given life to my body. I told my body that you are a self healing mechanism; I heal you in Jesus Name. I confessed the word, spoke in tongues and walked the miles ignoring the excruciating pain. Daily I presented my body to the Holy Spirit walking the talk. I knew I was responsible to do the "PRESENTING" and I did and still do till today using the Word, Praying in tongues and enjoying the fellowship of the Spirit. By the 6th day, the pain was all gone, the tingling all gone and the cracking sound disappeared! Are you having a health challenge? Your body has the power to heal itself. Just take advantage of what you already have and live in Divine Health. Christ is in you! Christ lives in you! Talk the Word to your body, make lifestyle adjustments, eat right and at the right times (fiber, fruits and vegetables - eat in smaller portions, eliminate sodium, lower carbs and protein intake when you are past 40 years old) and drink lots of water (minimum 2 litres a day). Fuel your body with the right organic foods and drink (water). Adopt a daily physical exercise - dancing, walking, jogging, swimming, skipping etc. Resting is not a crime. Fight for your REST!! Give your body the rest it needs to hibernate and recalibrate for the long haul. Sleep is a blessing when you can wake up and you can still function effectively on this side of heaven. God's Word always WORKS!! Wishing you God's highest and best in your Health!! . #monthofuplifting #Liftchallenge
YOUR LOVEWORLD WITH PASTOR CHRIS AND PASTOR BENNY (DAY 2) Using an envelope and a 20dollar bill inside to explain baptism, Bishop McClendon said "The word baptize is from the Greek word 'baptizo' which literally means to immerse, to envelop or to surround. This $20 bill has been baptized into this envelope. You know there is a $20 bill in there but you can't see it; all you see is the envelope. This is what happened to you and me when Jesus died and rose again" Referencing Rom 6, he said when you look at the works of Christ, "all you see is Christ but you were in there. The bible teaches you were baptized into his death...this is why Paul said things like, 'I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet it's not I...because if you look, you don't really see me but see Him...but Christ that liveth in me.This life that I live in the flesh I live by the faith of the son of God because he was moving in the revelation of this immersion." #cephzone1 #yourloveworld
Rule Your Body - Pastor Chris (ROR) 1 Corinthians 9:27 TLB “Like an athlete I punish my body, treating it roughly, training it to do what it should, not what it wants to. Otherwise I fear that after enlisting others for the race, I myself might be declared unfit and ordered to stand aside.” Jesus went to a certain place to pray and He took with Him three of His disciples, because He wanted them to pray with Him. But they were too tired and fell asleep. He rebuked them and said, “…The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Matthew 26:41). Sadly, some folks have held on to this statement as an excuse for their weakness. They don’t realise that Jesus didn’t say this as a recommendation but an expression of regret. Your body is not supposed to control you, because you’re a spirit being. In other words, the real “you” is a spirit and not a body. Your body is just your “house” where your spirit lives (2 Corinthians 5:1-4). This is why you should never allow it dictate how you live. So, make up your mind to rule your body in all areas. Set an alarm for yourself to help you wake up to pray, and when it goes off, don’t go back to bed; just get up and pray! When it’s time to go to church, make sure you go! When it’s time to study your Bible, go ahead and do it! If you can discipline yourself to do this each day, you’ll do it each month, and by the end of this year, you’ll discover that you’ve gained the mastery over your body, hallelujah! #CEPHZONE1 #21DAYSPNF
