LUKE 13:6-9 WHO'S DRESSING YOU? "He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down". 1. Know, my dear brethren, the believer in Christ Jesus is the fig tree. 2. The Father is the certain man who has planted the fig tree. 3. The dresser is my Pastor who will "dig" and "dung" me with the Word and the "Spirit". 4. After 3 years, where's my perfection ie the results (fruits) of the Father's purpose for planting me? 5. A TREE NEVER EATS IT'S OWN FRUITS ie my productivity is not for myself. I am the beneficent fruit producer. Within 3 years, I am to be (for the Lord) a tree that produces fruit that benefits the Lord (more of this in a later post). 6. The intercession of my dresser is very important. As he digs and dungs me (cell leadership, partnership, Soulwinning), it is very important to me that I respond well to him. #myperfectlife #yearofperfection #abkmc
BELIEVE IN PERFECTION ~ PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect (Matthew 5:48). There’re many who don’t believe that perfection is possible. When you try to talk to them about perfection, they don’t want to hear it. With a sneer, they accuse you of being a "perfectionist," because in their erroneous belief, "nobody can be perfect." Yet, when you study the Word, there’s no place that suggests to us the impossibility of perfection. God doesn’t give us a chance not to be perfect. Everything about Him calls for perfection; He requires us to be perfect, not when we get to heaven, but here and now—in the earth! The reason most people don’t think perfection is possible, which is why they’re not perfect, is that they don’t know what perfection is. Perfection is like success, which can be measured at different stages of your life, according to the set-out objectives, purpose, and goal. Perfection is measured according to the light, instruction, or information that you have with respect to the underlying objectives. Our opening verse says, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." The word "perfect" here is the Greek "teleios," which describes perfection in your heart; a completeness; measuring your heart with the heart of God. The way to do this is through the Word. Think, love and forgive as God wants you to—let your heart be like the Father’s heart. The word "perfect" is also used in 2 Corinthians 13:11; it says, "Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect…." This time, another Greek word, "katartizo" is used for "perfect." It means to do things perfectly. This is not the perfection in the heart (teleios) but of your actions: the things you do and how you do them. The emphasis here is on doing things impeccably right the first time. And the first step in achieving this is learning to pay attention to details! Believe in perfection and don’t be intimidated by it. Your perfection will be judged according to the training and information that you’ve received, not the one you didn’t get. So, practise being perfect; think and talk perfection, because the Lord requires it of you. #theyearofperfection #excellence #alignment #wehavemoved #blessings #strengthened #talkingsession #affirmationtrain #glorified #loveworld #ministry #flourish #fruitful #season #thankyoupastorchris #knowledge

Prayer at 12noon and 10pm (Local/GMT) - Mon Dec 2 Glorious and inspiring moments marked our just concluded Global Communion Service, where we were ushered into our Month of Blessings in Thanksgiving. Hallelujah! We're going to bless by giving thanks throughout this month, as we prepare for a most amazing year 2020. See highlights of the service on Loveworld News at http://loveworldnews.com Psalm 103:1 - 5 says, "Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's". At 12noon and 10pm (Local/GMT), we'll pray in tongues of the Spirit for most of both 15min prayer sessions; also giving thanks to the Lord for His grace in our lives, and His ability granted us to do so much more for the gospel in the days ahead.

IT'S OUR MONTH OF BLESSINGS IN THANKSGIVING. THINK DIFFERENTLY ~ PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward (Hebrews 10:35). It’s the last month of the year 2019—our “Year of Lights.” Perhaps, you might have been troubled and saying in your heart, “Lord, I still have goals and things I want to do. I want to receive more money for this, and for that; now the year is almost coming to an end.” Don’t think that way with God. Stay in eternity. Live in eternity. Think differently. Don’t “push” God like natural men do. Live with Him in His realm of life. Don’t get under the pressure. When you get under pressure because of what you want to accomplish within a certain time, you become a slave to time. Don’t let that happen to you. Time should be a slave to you. Psalm 37:4-5 says, “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” Nothing is too difficult for, or impossible with, the Lord; He’s the great God. He said in Jeremiah 32:27, “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?” His greatness is beyond description. His power is limitless. Trust Him, and trust His ability. He can do for you in a second, what naturally should have taken you ten years to achieve. Within the last part of this year, you can receive anything that you desire of Him. Jesus said in John 16:24, “…ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full." He wants your joy to be full; therefore, keep your faith active; ask and receive. Stand firm; stay strong. Believe and keep affirming the Word even in the face of staggering oppositions. Never give up, for faith always wins. #blessings #thanksgiving #lights #lima #globalcommunionservice #awards #ippc2019 #imcc19 #affirmationtrain #eternity #talkingsession #liftchallenge #wehavemoved #thankyoupastorchris

HE RESTORES ‘WASTED YEARS’ BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm…(Joel 2:25) It excites me to know the Lord can restore to you even that which you seem to have lost; He’s the restorer of wasted years. No human being or government may ever be able to give back to you what you’ve lost, but God can! He can bring back everything and more! What is that thing you may have thought you lost? Perhaps you thought you messed things up so bad they couldn’t be rectified; or you looked at your life and thought you’ve wasted so much time without making progress. I bring you good news today: it’s not over yet! God is willing and able to restore you to the place of your dream and destiny in Him. What you need is to recognize that the Holy Spirit living in you is a restorer! In one sweep, He can move you a hundred paces forward, far ahead of your competitors, detractors and adversaries. Those who seemed to have gotten ahead of you would be amazed to see how things have turned around for you in a moment of time! Learn to trust the Spirit of God to lead and guide you in life. He knows how to make something beautiful out of your life, and restore the wasted years- the wasted time, resources, money etc. Perhaps on your job you were given an assignement and you wasted the resources assigned to you; or maybe you’re a student, and you’ve wasted so much time at the expense of your studies; relax! You can trust the Holy Spirit to restore all that you’ve lost! He can do it, and He will if only you’ll call on Him! If any of these describes your situation, say, “Holy Spirit, I’m sorry I messed things up, but I ask you to come to my aid and restore to me that which I have lost! I receive that divine restoration now; in Jesus’ Name.” Now, act like someone who has received the answer to that prayer, and launch out in faith, trusting the Lord who specializes in restoring wasted years. #restores #wastedyears #ministry #talkingsession #affirmationtrain
BELIEVE THE BEST OF OTHERS BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. ...Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn't want what it doesn't have. Love... Puts up with anything; Trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back, but keeps going to the end (1 Corinthians 13:4,7 MSG). As Christians, we ought to provide a sense of security for one another. I like the idea of living freely among God's people as the Bible admonishes us to. That's how it ought to be. You shouldn't clam up and want to be on your guard always because of some negative reports you heard about others. That's why it's important to walk in love, for love always believes the best about others. Some people love to gossip; they are busybodies in other people's affairs, and the Bible warns us not to be that way! Such folks sow seeds of discord among brethren and attempt to pollute the whole Church with strife, "speaking things which they ought not" (1 Timothy 5:13). It's unsafe to hang around such people for they only spread resentment and rancour. Many churches have had troubles because of them. When you hear negative reports about people, your reaction is what determines whether you're walking in love or not. Always be ready to believe only the best about everyone. Never criticize anyone. Never write anyone off, just because of what you heard they said or did. When you hear a fellow believer defaming or tale-bearing about another brother or sister, correct him or her immediately, in love. We often make the mistake of keeping quiet when we know people are saying the wrong things about others. By such we become accomplices for giving them a hearing ear. If you shut your ears, they'll shut their mouths. Jesus chose to believe the best about His disciples. He knew, for example, that Peter was going to deny Him, yet He said to him,"...Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may siftyou as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren." (Luke 22:31-32). Choose to believe the best in others today, for that's the love-way; the way of victory! #love #ministry #talkingsession #victory #affirmationtrain #wehavemoved
SEE IT INSIDE FIRST! ~ PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever (Genesis 13:14-15). When God told Abraham to "Lift up his eyes and look," He wasn't referring to his physical eyes, but to the eyes of his spirit. He wanted the man to look into the realm of the spirit and see the realities of God's Kingdom. That's the realm where seeming impossible situations in this earthly realm become possible. However, the only way to see into this realm is through prayer and study of the Word. The Word of God is "Light" (1 John 1:7); when you start walking in the light of God's Word, the realm of the spirit will come alive to you and you'll start functioning from that realm, just like your heavenly Father. I remember the story of a certain woman and her six year-old daughter, who both had polio and were brought to a healing meeting with a certain minister. After a session of prayers for the sick, the six year-old girl got healed immediately, but her mother wasn't and wished she had been healed like her daughter. About four years later, after listening to some tapes by the same minister on healing, she got healed! How? As she listened to the Word of God, she was able to see into the realm of the spirit and saw that there was no sickness or disease in her body! Soon as she got a hold of that PICTURE, nothing could stop her healing from manifesting in the physical. That's living from the inside out! You need to see that miracle you desire first by your eyes of your spirit. You can live free of sickness, poverty, failure, and suffering if you'd only turn the light of God's Word on your life. That way, you'll see the real you, and the realities of the glorious, prosperous and successful life God has called you to. #success #word #ministry #realities #wehavemoved #affirmationtrain #loveworld #talkingsession
THE BENEFITS OF FORGIVING OTHERS BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, until seven times: but, until seventy times seven (Matthew 18:21-22) When you forgive, you're the one who benefits. Not to forgive places you at a serious disadvantage and as a child of God, you should act like your heavenly father, who never recalls your offences. The first benefits of forgiving others is that you keep the door firmly closed against the devil. When you don't forgive, you open the door to bitterness and malice, both of which are satan's keys to entering a person's life. The Bible says "If you become angry, do not let your anger lead you into sin, and do not stay angry all day. Don't give the devil a chance" (Ephesians 4:26-27 GNB) The second benefit of forgiving others is that when you do, the power of God in your life continues to flow unhindered. Remember that God is love and His power functions in the atmosphere of love. But when you don't forgive others, malice can creep in, which can short-circuit the power of God in your life. This was what happened to the Prophet Elisha in the Bible (2 Kings 3). Elisha was so angry and bitter against the King of Israel that he couldn't hear what the Spirit was saying. He had to call for a musician to play so that the annointing could come on him. Lastly, forgiving others will keep you in good health! People who harbour unforgiveness in their hearts are susceptible to sickness and disease. The bitterness in their hearts affects their physical bodies and manifests as infirmity. The reason some people are sick and miss out on God's blessings is that they refuse to forgive. So, make up your mind to always forgive those who have wronged you. If you forget how good God has been to you, you may find it difficult to forgive others when wronged. But when you appreciate the mercy you received from the Lord you'll find it easier to have mercy and forgive others when they've wronged you. #ministry #blessings #wehavemoved #affirmationtrain #talkingsession
#TALKINGSESSION 30TH OCTOBER. KINDLY SAY THESE WORDS OUT LOUD. Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for calling me out of the world into Your glorious Kingdom! I thank You for the day-to-day renewal of my mind and transformation of my soul and spirit through Your Word. Today, as I fellowship with You through prayer and study of Your Word, I am encouraged to think more like Jesus. I am full of power and dominion and nothing is impossible unto me! I function by the power of the Spirit today, in wisdom, and I have perfect understanding of all things. My mind is continually open to recieve new ideas. I refuse to see myself small in life, for the God I serve is the limit-breaker! I see my greatness, my increase and my influence bursting forth on every side in the Name of Jesus! Amen. • Keep saying it, publish it everywhere; noise it abroad! In Christ, we've got something to shout about. Let's flood the airwaves, internet and print media with the reality of Christ. Speak in other tongues now. ~ Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. #october #ministry #forgeahead #direction #talkingsession #affirmationtrain
YOUR SET TIME TO DREAM BIG BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME. And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more (Genesis 37:5). There're no laws in heaven or on earth against dreaming big. So, as a Christian, you're at liberty to dream, and dream big. Let your dream of success be big enough for God to get involve with it. Let your dreams be such that'll require the power of God to accomplish. That's why I love the man Joseph in the Bible. As a young lad, his dreams were out of this world! Though his brothers hated him for all his extraordinary dreams of greatness, he kept on dreaming and telling them about his dreams. A man with a big dream can attract God's attention. That's why even in prison, Joseph kept rising to the top. He eventually became the prime minister of Egypt and preserved both Egypt and several other nations from famine. It's time for you to dream and dream big. It's a decision you must make. Dream big for your finances, family, job or business. Make sure your vision for success is big enough to require the supernatural element! Stretch your vision. If you were planning to start out of a small shop, go ahead, but begin to dream of owning a mall. Refuse to put your mind to sleep; keep dreaming! See yourself doing big things. Have a different way of thinking. Your heavenly Father is big, and his resources are limitless. Not only is He able to cause your visions of success to come to pass, He's more willing and enthusiastic about your success than you could ever be. #IPPC2019 #ministry #dreambig #wehavemoved #supernatural #talkingsession #affirmationtrain
