*YOUR LOVEWORLD WITH PASTOR CHRIS*

*Phase 4, Day 7 (30th April 2020)*

*Transcribed by Sis. Chiago Abuja Ministry Centre*

Today Concludes this phase of this program.
We will have something next week.
But we have made tremendous impact by the power of the Spirit of God.
We have set a lot of things in motion.
The church of Jesus Christ is marching forward.

Sunday is the special Communion Service, so we will have a live program. Plan for that.

I told you to download the LiveTV mobile app, Just in case your TV goes off.
http://www.livetvmobile.org

We have stirred up a lot of conversation around the world.
Scientists, doctors etc are all coming out and speaking up about the things I told you before.
I told you that what was going on was not science.

Just a few days ago, Switzerland found out that children under 10 cannot infect others with the virus. Interesting!!! Isn’t that the same virus that’s supposed to stay on dry surface on 4hours?

I told you of the plan of vaccinating the young generation.
This vaccine has been ready since, but they are lying and saying ‘we are working on it…its hard… Etc’. They would keep using their playbook to manipulate the nations.

When you read the bible you can read everybody and their role.
As Christians, Pray everywhere.

I’ll tell you the truth before it happens
Did you hear of Covid-19 compliant churches? Or Covid-19 Free churches?
If you allow yourself labeled with that name you are not the church of Jesus Christ.
Is the church not meant to be a place of healing??
If you are a pastor that likes to roll with the government, you would want to seem compliant.
It is coming…but I pray you don’t let it happen in your country. You may not understand it. But this is where it was going all the time.

In different countries, before the lockdown, the government had meetings with church leaders. Why didn’t they ask for a few days to go and pray? Because they were not praying churches before.
Do you know what it means to shut down the congregations of the Lord?
It never meant anything to you!!!!!
There were Pastors that were sending strong warnings to others not to enter or open churches….its obvious that Christ was never their Lord or the centre of their lives. They never really knew him.
Imagine the Government consulted you but you didn’t call for prayer… You just said ‘Oh Yes’ because for some, there was going to be some compensation for the period of the Lockdown.

What compensation is enough to replace the praise and worship of the saints???
Hope you enjoyed it so far, when only you did online service???
Thank you very much for what you did with the house of God.
Now they will meet you again to consult with you to use you to set up “test centres for churches”
What they are using to test, do you know what it is? Do you know why it reads positive or negative for a virus ‘they are still studying’???
Now they are saying they can have a vaccine in July? For a vaccine they are still studying?
We already know what’d killing the people.

A pastor last week was sick of some ailment that they had been managing for some years. After he died, the authorities came there dressed in hazmat suits in pretense that the person that died was a covid19 patient. But it was a LIE.
Where was the autopsy report????
What they didn’t realize was that His mother was a Nurse who KNEW that he didn’t have Covid-19.
Why couldn’t the Government do an autopsy?

I’ve told you about the lawless one that’s coming. What we are seeing is the harbinger of the lawless one playing out around the world.
They want to rank up the numbers.

In several of the new lawless laws, it is actually stated there that AUTOPSY IS NOT REQUIRED.
That’s absolute lawlessness.
How can people die and there is no reason for their death? And you are not allowed to challenge it? This is CRAZY!!!

For those who are passing these laws that they never read… I feel sorry for you. God will hold you accountable at the proper time.
No matter how urgent, ensure you read it. And of you don’t agree with it, don’t vote for it.
Truth is they already declared a state of emergency so they don’t need the vote. They want the state of emergency to continue so that the executive won’t need your permission.

This is a siege! Some of you didn’t realize it.
The bible says ‘the whole world wondered after the beast’… They worshipped the Antichrist.
What is happening right now, is the spirit of Antichrist. This is not the beast himself. This just another prince of darkness trying to see if they can start ahead of time and destroy the world as much as they can for a longer period (since God would only give the devil Three and half years)

E.g
Social distancing…
Let’s see the reason for it. It is for the destruction of families.
Satan hates man.
Angelic beings are not a race. Each one of them is different. They don’t have that fellowship or relationship like we do.
And that’s what they want to bring to the world and make us estranged to each other. That’s why they have tried to introduce the word ‘the new normal’.

Plato is recognized as the Father of today’s university system. He pioneered the “Academy’.
He created an idea… The community/communism of wives.
This is the ideology that a certain man brought into the church at a time (the doctrine of the nicolaitans…which Jesus says he HATES). It was about the destruction of families.
He came up with the idea that Public officials should not have families because of what they have to do on service to their country. That having families would make them have the dream of having properties and planning for their future and that it would be a distraction for them.
He suggested that they would have a ‘community of wives’ to mate with any of them to have children who would not have recognition of any parentage, so that they would be free, children of the state.
Then they can have a generation that is detached from family demands and desires.

(See how they started with the gradualism… Public servants).

Destruction of families is what the social distancing is about.
We start practising not to hug one another even though we are not in the same house.

This was Plato, the extraordinary philosopher recognized in Greece.
Several universities are named after Greek gods, mythology, etc. And they don’t know why.
A lot of people are victims not even realizing that they are.

YOU can be deceived if you choose to be. It’s very easy to be deceived.

Yesterday i told you, Satan has a structure.
Matt 12:25-26.
Jesus, by implication, stated that Satan has a kingdom.
Jesus referred to him as the prince/god of this world.
(2 Cor 4:4)
He became so, because Adam sold out to him.
He set up his system which he is running.
We have to be wise enough with the wisdom of God.

The character of Satan is manifested again and again with what’s going on. (John 8:44).
The devil is a native liar. When you see deception and killings, just know that he is in operation.

Remember the city of TYRE… Satan was running their lives. Several people of Tyre moved to reside in Judah and Jerusalem… And began to sell things to people on the Sabbath to lure them to defy Gods rule about the Sabbath and attract Gods judgement.

There are people who refuse to recognize the day of worship… That’s Satan’s manifestation.

How do you hear Truth from the world? How do you expect to build your faith? You use what the world is telling you to question the information from the Church. They are reproducing themselves in you without you realizing.

*1 Chronicles 21:1*
This is what devils/demons do.
How would they know they are being incited by Satan?
Satan was after Israel, so he incited the king.
Imagine this was David!!!!

V2-4
Joab knew that the action was not consistent with Gods plan even though taking a census seemed harmless.
V7. God punished Israel…not David…. And this was Satan’s plan all along. 70,000 men died because of this mistake of the king.

Understand Satan’s character of DECEPTION.

Something also happened in the days of Solomon…
Things happen in nations today. (E.g. the altar that was moved from Pergamon to Berlin, the eastern gate that was moved as well to Europe. Is there any wonder that Europe is anti God today?)

*1 Kings 11:1-12*
God had warned them that SURELY they would turn away their hearts… But Solomon married those strange women.
And at the the end of his life, Solomon started following their gods, and even built high altars for those gods/demons for his strange wives….in JERUSALEM!!!!
Solomon did all these atrocities even after being visited by God twice!!!! He didn’t keep Gods word. So sad and troubling.
Bringing those idols was just the outward side of it…but what Solomon did was to bring DEMONS INTO ISRAEL… that’s what Satan wanted… Because once the demons came in, they began to run things.

Angels, God, Satan always needs man’s Cooperation to carry things out in the earth.

Satan needed Davids actions so he could carry out his work.

This is why we pray.
When satan gets into a city or country, usually he is in collusion with a person in that place. It takes time to break that influence because of the human involvement.
That’s why Gods people need to understand their authority in Christ.
Know what Gods word says.
What can you really do?
What are the things you need to have a lot of intercession about in order to be effective?
All these answer are in Gods word and without understanding them, you can’t go very far.

After Solomon brought in demons, after he died, His Son Rehoboam could not keep the Kingdom because of the demonic forces who were suggesting things to him.
E.g. he didn’t even take advice from the elders who tried to steer him right from the errors his Father had made.
He took advice from his young friends who didn’t know how Solomon started and his love for God, but knew his missteps.
As he followed their advice, the kingdom split and he lost it.

*2 Thessalonians 2: 1-11*
V7: the Antichrist spirit is already in operation.
V9-11. If you don’t receive the truth. You will believe a lie, There is no middle ground.
It is those who are perishing that will really be deceived.
If you love the truth, the truth will deliver you.

*Daniel 8:25 TLB*
The bible says the Antichrist will be a master of deception. He will catch people off guard and make them bask in false security.
This demon that is his forerunner is doing the same thing.
This is just a sign that the Lord is coming soon… GET READY!!!
If.you think there is FAKE NEWS now, just imagine in the last days, there will be STAGED NEWS.
(Already look at what the FBI did to General FLYNN. There is evidence to that conspiracy now. That was the work of the deep state. A manifestation of satanic involvement in Human Governments)

For example, one might belong to a ‘labour congress’ where you are told that when you join they will fight your cause for you.
Any wonder why when you take someone from those congress/cults to become a minister or president, You would think your industry would get better off since he knew what your colleagues went through but they don’t get better off because he is under the ruler of the darkness of this world.

The world is moving to a situation very soon where you will not be allowed to say anything against Satan..or they will block you from public speaking.
The time to preach the gospel is NOW.
PREACH IT LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
Satanists are getting bolder now. They have some of their members in office in the open. And the hatred for the church of Jesus is increasing.
Its us who are preaching Jesus that would be called Cults (already happening now).

The time for STRONG PRAYING and to engage them in the spirit is now. So that the little window we have left to preach and win souls, we can utilize effectively.

*Daniel 7:24-25*
This shows the Antichrist spirit that is going on right now.
He shall *wear out* the saints of the most high.

Currently, the demons are trying to wear out the saints in this present time… One law and problem after the other… To make you fed up and tired. You find yourself having prayer after prayer.
He will have a bill to change times and laws. To change the way/structure of life (the new normal).
These bills coming out now are their intention to change the norm. Its not to keep people healthy or safe.
As the church we have authority. We are seated together with Christ in a place far above all principality.
But if we don’t use our authority, they will move far and we will be be playing ‘catch up’./

As of now, because we were praying, the forces have COLLIDED in this spirit. Our intercession didn’t stop and we have been releasing fire power in the spirit so it has been very difficult for the devil.. (And we are not done with him yet)

*Daniel 10:13,20*
A spirit being withstood Angel Gabriel. A top prince in Heaven. A high Angel. There was war in the heavenlies.
At that time, HEAVEN WAS RESPONDING to the Prayer of Daniel!!!!
God responded in the spirit. He sent angels to topple the Prince of Persia in the spirit.

This is symbolic to us and the kind of things happening right now.
There are changes in the spirit right now.

Daniel 11:1
There are angels sent to strengthen leaders to carry out the works of God.

Revelations 17:1-6
Many righteous men were slain by this wicked spirit. This spirit will also be responsible for the killing of many more in the future.

These are things that going on right now. There are several groups in play. China, the deep state (a different group with a different agenda), Europe, Russia and Islamic allies, United states, Satan (Pergamos and Tyre).

China today is the test ground for globalism.
It used to be New Zealand and Australia. They shifted because those countries are too into Democratic ideologies and it would be too slow for the deep state. They would need a totalitarian system of Government. China doesn’t even know they are a guinea pig. China is helped with technology etc. China is never condemned for whatever they do. So China is active now.
Meanwhile. China has its own dreams. They won’t be part of the one world government. (This is one of the reasons Germany is suing China over the Covid-19. They know China won’t come on board)

The purpose of our discussion is so we know where we are in Bible days of Prophecy.
We must realize it.
Open our hearts to Gods word studying it like never before and take our hands away from sin.

Next week we will share on what type of life God wants us to live.

You have to live the life of righteousness. It is a life of right standing with God that produces right living.
True righteousness produces RIGHT LIVING.
Its about making up your mind to live for him.
We are in bible days, and we are all part of this AMAZING DRAMA.

But this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith
We have overcome this world and we insist on it. we decree and proclaim it. We are victors and Satan can’t lord it over us.
The wisdom of God is at work in us
*By the power of the spirit we are disconnecting Satan and his works in our nations and he cannot proceed.*
The weapons God has given us are mighty through God that no matter what theories or writings he has put out there, the words that come out of us are so powerful to neutralize the effects of Satan’s agenda.
*We have overcome the Antichrist spirit, their falsehood, their distraction*.
“Greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world”.

Let’s stretch our hands towards the Map of the nations on the screen .
Satan has no authority!!!
The power of the Holy Ghost fills these nations.

The Lord has established his church in the earth.
We know at what point the saints will be given into the devil’s hands as shown in Daniel and Revelation, *So he cannot wear us out or overcome us now. No!!!*

We declare that we have power over the nations because they belong to Jesus Christ
We declare his glory, his word and his name over the nations.
The knowledge of the Glory of the Lord shall cover these nations as the waters cover the sea, and IT SHALL BE SO.
And the open door of the gospel that has been given to us, NO MAN SHALL SHUT IT.
These doors shall remain open for the gospel in the name or Jesus and by the power of the holy Ghost.
And those ones that seemed closed shall be made open by the power of the Holy Ghost.
And the name of Jesus Christ shall be glorified in all the earth. Hallelujah!!!

You need more of the word for your spiritual benefit.
Get to the pastor Chris digital library app and get some free messages which are offered to you.
Increase your knowledge of the word of God.
You need it!

We will start the next phase of our broadcasts from next week Tuesday, specially designed to get you prepared for the coming of the Lord.
Christ is coming soon!!!
Don’t let him find you sleeping.
Prepare for his coming.

*Phase 5, Day 2 (Wednesday 6th May 2020*

*Notes transcribed by Sis Chiagozie*

Welcome to today’s program..

Now there are several questions from many of you around the world.
I’ll read 2 or 3 which *I will not answer immediately because the answers to these questions will come to you while we teach in the next few days.*

Q: Is the Lake of Fire a real lake or is it symbolic.?
A: It is real. Why its called a lake is because it’s in the midst of other heavenly bodies that have nothing to do with it. Like a body of water…but its all fire inside. Its different from Hell.

Q: Will a Gay that’s a Christian and endorse Gods work be raptured?
Q: What role will Africa play in the ministry (period) of the Antichrist?

I want to bring your mind to The questions the disciples of Jesus asked him.

Matt 24:1-3
When shall these things be?
What shall be the sign of thy coming?
What shall be the sign of the end of the age?

These are 3 different questions which will be happening at 3 different times in 3 different places. That’s why in explaining these signs of the end times, I took you through different books. You would have known the coming of the Lord won’t have happened 10 or 50years ago if you were studying the Bible.

Jesus actually described clearly what the signs will be. That’s why I took you through these details to show you how close it is. I showed from the gospel and other parts of the Bible so that you’ll see how definite Jesus was. There are other teachings that’ll help you see the times and seasons and they show you how close His coming is, so that you know how to plan your life.

I want to show you an old video of a man by name Pastor Carl Sanders who is responsible for the creation and design of a microchip. He was not a Christian when he created it and now he’s a Christian but he’s spent the rest of his life warning Christians not to take the mark of the beast.

(Video playout).

They would like to put the Chip in the head or in the hand… Think about that.
In the last verse that talked about the grevious sore that could not be healed… It will be on the people who would take the mark of the beast
This was confirmed by the scientist about the effect of the lithium in the body.

Remember this is the guy responsible for designing the microchip
Tell me he doesn’t know what he is saying.
And this was 20 years ago…
Now think what has happened since then.
The micro chip was said to be the most remarkable invention in the past 20 years.
He has explained the connectivity with the body and the signals outside.

We are not trying to stop those things from happening. They are going to happen. But we have to prepare Gods people and ensure that things happen in the earth according to Gods timing and season…(that’s part of our calling and why we pray and intercede).
The things will happen but we have to warn and prepare Gods people.
Noah warned people in his time but a lot of people didn’t believe him. Only his family did.
God didn’t change his plans because only 8 people believed. He still destroyed the whole world save for the 8 and the animals they put inside the ark.

Everywhere you go today in this world, there is a sign.. The destruction of the world with water is evident everywhere. Every scientific evidence shows that it happened. All experiments have shown it and can determine the time when it happened.
Archeologists also found remains of the ark that was built by Noah….where the Bible said it would be.

Don’t deceive yourself and think these things are just seasonal talks. They are reality.

Revelations 1-3 are preparing you for Chapter 4 onwards.

*Revelations 1:*
John was in the island of Patmos. It was an island close to the location of the 7 churches.
Patmos is currently a part of Greece.

That’s where John was, banished to a prison there at the time of great persecution… and he received this Revelations there. God told him what to write.

Vs10: The lords day was the day of the resurrection because the Lord resurrected on Sunday Morning.

Be careful of spiritualizing things if they are not meant to be spiritualized. .
Those 7 churches were located in Asia Minor at that time.

Some preach that these are ‘spiritual levels’ that must be attained. .the word doesn’t give us any such indication and yet we can learn a lot from these without spiritualizing their location.
There is no point trying to locate yourself in the state of one of the churches. Don’t get yourself into such difficulty. The word does not suggest it.

(E.g. The promised land is not a type of heaven that you journey to. It is type of place of inheritance. You don’t journey there. You are born into it)

*V12-16*
He saw 7 golden candlesticks.
The one in the midst of the candlesticks had 7 stars in his right hand.

V17:
Remember during the last supper, it was John that had his head on the chest of Jesus who asked about who would betray him. He was close to Jesus.
Now, When he sees Jesus in his glory in this chapter, He passed out.
He was gripped with fear.
V18. Jesus has the keys of Hell and of death.

*HELL:*
Right from the old to new Testament, the teaching of Hell has been very consistent.
Hell in the old testament was called Sheoul…Hell/Grave.
When you look at the verse connected to Sheol, They are not trying to tell you about a 6 foot deep pit or a place of some fire. .they give you an understanding of an abode of spirits or of the dead. They also give you an understanding that it is in some subterranean region.
Isaiah 38:10…
The word translated grave there is Sheoul (Hebrew word)
Isaiah 14:9a.
The idea is that it is somewhere below. There is spiritual direction/location. It is beneath/Below.
Proverbs 15:24… Same idea of someplace/abode of spirits/not in this world but somewhere beneath.

In the Greek, this same place is called *Hades*.
Its not talking about the place of suffering or a place of fire… Its like an intermediate place between life and judgement where the dead are made to wait.
Understanding it more through various scriptures you will understand that in the spirit, its talking about the same place.
Hell is divided into two parts.
One place of suffering and another part that isn’t.

Jesus enlightened us with the story of the rich man and Lazarus (not a parable… It was about definite people).
At that time, Abraham’s bosom was still in Hades. That is why the Hebrews called Sheoul Abraham’s bosom.

Now, Abraham’s bosom is no longer in Hades, because they all resurrected with Jesus. The only people left there are the unrighteous.
Jesus speaking about it used the term Gehenna (a place of suffering), helping them understand the hell that is a fire.
The rich man was so thirsty in there that he wanted a drop of water from Lazarus. Abraham explained that there was a great Gulf between the 2 sides.
Mark 9:47- He said ‘Hell FIRE’.

*REV 1:18*
Keys refer to authority.
V19-
He tells John to write the things which he is seeing in the revelation…
The things about the current condition of the churches…
And the things which would happen in future.

V20
Jesus begins to explain to him the mystery which John had just seen.

(Remember we learnt the 7 stars are the Angels of the churches who were Human messengers/Pastors).
The 7 candlesticks are the churches.

*Revelations 2:1*
Ephesus:
This was the only church that got an Epistle from Paul to us.

*A bit of background On Ephesus would be helpful.*
John didn’t start the church in Ephesus.
The whole story is in 2 chapters. Acts 18 and 19.
Paul, went to Ephesus and while there, he tried to explain the gospel to the Jewish congregation there, and there was a mixed reaction… But he needed to make a journey so he didn’t stay.
After he left, in came Apollos; And Apollos convinced a lot of the Jews that Jesus was the Christ.

Priscilla and Aquila learnt he didn’t know a lot about the gospel so they taught him because he was very bold.
Then Apollos left.
Then Paul came back and this time he met a few believers, converts from Apollos ministry… They were just 12 men.
Paul asked if they had received the holy ghost. They hadn’t. He laid hands on them and they received the HolyGhost.
Trouble broke out because more people believed.
The Jewish congregation was offended. So Paul separated the brethren from the Jewish congregants, and began with them using a school facility.
So…who started the church? Apollos or Paul?

What could have happened to this church? Was it in good condition?
This was a church that was Faithful and loved the lord and the brethren as seen in Paul’s writings. Paul stressed the Love of God to them in several verses.
Why is that important? Because of what we find here in Rev 2.
At this point, this church was less than 50 years old. It started 54AD and Revelations was written around 96AD.

*Revelations 2:2-3*
The question ‘who is the Apostle to Ephesus’ may have come up too at that time.
Every time you have such indefiniteness.. There are some who take advantage of such divisions.
Paul told the Corinthians ‘though you have several instructors in Christ. You have only one Father”.
So there were some that had come to Ephesus as Apostles who God didn’t send and they found out.
These words were written to the Credit of the Ephesus. That church was very hardworking.

V4: They left their first love? What about all that Labour they were just praised for?
God tells them to repent.
He threatened to take the church out of its place.
What was the first love?
Evidently, it refers to their love and passion for Jesus Christ.

*I John 4:20*
To Love Jesus, you must express it in loving God’s people. *Our loving the brethren is our showing that we love Christ.*

*1 Tim 5:8*
Paul was writing about God’s people and how their expression of the gospel of Jesus Christ would be in their relationship with people.
You can be working/labouring/sanctimonious but that love is important.
Jesus told the Ephesian church to do the *first works*: loving Christ so much that you express it in loving others.
*The love of God that you demonstrate in works is so important. These are works of Love. You demonstrate that love towards those that you can see to begin with*.

*You are serving God, But you will not help your siblings? You can’t remember them, but you remember God? What about your Parents?*

Sometimes, you have a Christian who will not provide for his spouse or for his children.
*Loving God is expressed in loving people.*

In Christ, we also have spiritual families and they are just as important.

As a Pastor do you remember those that labour with you? Do their financial conditions affect you or are you hard hearted towards them?

What about fellow ministers? Neighboring churches going through difficult times?

These are things we need to rethink and repent of.

You are in a position and have a fellow Christian working with you who has not been paid for 3 months…..????.

Removing the candlestick means, that church will no longer be there. . *the relevance of the church is its ministry of Love*

God told Judah if you don’t repent, “I will get you out of my sight”. The place that you were supposed to be, he would get you out of there.

Did the Ephesian church repent? I don’t know. But it is Moslems that are there now.
All the churches written to… All those cities are taken over by Moslems.
They may have repented earlier and gone back to their works.
.. But the same principle remains.

*Walking in Love has No alternative*.
Make up your mind and train yourself to walk in love.
*Don’t be hardened against your brethren, siblings, other ministers…*
Let your heart be softened.

Be easily stirred to help.
It is better that they take advantage of you for doing good than not to do it.
*Can your goodness expire?*
You have a never ending stream of goodness that can’t run dry.

Just imagine.. We love to do things for God. We plan to build a church building…then…we don’t pay those who are working for us… *Do you think He will like to use that building?* Maybe not!

These are some of the sins in the churches.
There are some things that are more important in life. There are things to be repented of.

*People are the true value*.
They are the ones for whom Jesus came.

He didn’t come to set up large groups or structures.
*Till you see the individuals as persons, the one million congregation means Nothing to God.*

We can be so big and so known and have BIG things to do, that individual lives are not important to us.
Only the large crowds and large platforms..
When Jesus sees that…he sees Ephesus!!!

And if you don’t repent, he will remove the candlestick out of its place.

What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his soul?

When you become very big and you are so protected by security paraphernalia.. One could be in such a need and we would get insensitive to know what to attend to and what to ignore. But Jesus was not like that. He heard the cry of individuals.
Would you be sensitive to the cry of that one individual that’s difficult to see?

These are things that must come through your mind and ask the lord to show you those things you need to address.
Ask for a heart of love and where there is no person you don’t love, where you value individuals and give attention to the high and the lowly… The one gorgeously dressed and the one who looks ragged.
Its up to you.
You would like the lord to think well of you .

Pray about your current condition and the guidance of the spirit in your life, for your pastors and your churches.
Pray even for those who despitefully use you and persecute you.

Pray now.

*YOUR LOVEWORLD WITH PASTOR CHRIS*

*Phase 4, Day 4 (Monday 27th April 2020)*

The church is marching on.
The gates of Hell shall not prevail.
The church is marching on.

The gates of Hell shall not be able to withstand the church.

Welcome to today’s program.
In the days of Jesus ministry in the earth/in Israel, He had spiritual adversaries and then he had the religious folks who were after him because of their selfish ambitions.
Then also, was the earthly structure set up by Satan; the earthly government that was so corrupt that Jesus talked about.
*Its the same today!*

I said that for a reason.
In the earth, there are often 2 groups… Same as the Heavens.
When we look at what happened in the days of David as a young man when God chose him to be king while Saul was still alive, Saul wanted to kill him because he realized Gods hand was on David and his dream to maintain a lasting dynasty was failing. But it didn’t work.
Finally he died…but his house continued to persecute David because of their ambition.
The bible says ‘there was a long war between the house of David and the house of Saul’. The house of David was the house appointed by God. The house of Saul was of sin and selfish ambitions
But *the house of Saul grew weaker and weaker, but the house of David grew stronger and stronger*.

The house of Saul was a head and shoulders government. A house of the flesh. Though chosen by God, was not listening to God. Towards the end of his life he even went to the witch of Endor to consult. He became a politician. He was more concerned about what the people thought than what God thought…but he was deceiving the people too.

That has not changed.
Sometimes people are chosen of God, but over time they stop listening to God but listen to people, the polls …which are also deceived by misinformation.

As a child of God it matters what you are listening to. If you listen to only information from the world/flesh…Satan transmits deception.
As a child of God, BE DISCERNING.
*Those who are after the flesh mind the things of the flesh…and those who are after the spirit, The things of the spirit*

After this whole thing, there is a lot that we will address in-house. For now, we need to keep our eyes on the ball.
As long as you are praying for this situation. Don’t be distracted and moved by what some other Christian leaders or organizations say.
We have dealt with the issues.
Things are not going in the direction that they had planned before.
But when we finish, we will look inwards and see how to fix things in-house.
The bible says Judgement must begin in the house of God.

Pls note: in the DIFFERENT INVASIONS OF JERUSALEM…
General Titus was the one who invaded and carried out destruction of the Jerusalem in 70 AD. Not the Turks.

*RECAP*
Yesterday, I was telling you about the Great white throne Judgement in Revelation 20, after Satan was captured a second time.
God destroyed those armies completely.
*Rev 20:10*… Three so far in the lake of fire.
V11- We the saints, are on one side with the Lord, and the rest of Humanity on the other side.
The earth, with the living people in it, couldn’t escape anywhere.
V12:
They are not going to judge a man twice for the same offences…and if his life is not done, he is not going to be judged. The Judgement is ONCE.

In front of the Lord at this time, was all the living people WHO HAD NEVER BEEN JUDGED BEFORE. All others had perished.

What about the “Goat Nations”?
Where were they sent to?
TO HELL!

Usually when a nation is captured, you take their leaders and princes away.
During the Judgement of the nations, its the leaders that will come…
Its about what they did to Israel that was wrong that they are being judged for.

*Matt 25:31-32*
This is the Judgement of Nations, not individuals…

The Judgement of individuals is in Revelation 20… At the end of the millennium.

Zechariah 14:1-… This Armageddon comes at the end of the second three and half years of Daniel’s seventieth week.
That second half is referred to as ‘the time of Jacobs trouble’
(Ref- Jeremiah 30: 2 – *7*- 11). What days was he talking about?
Matt 24:15-22,
It moves from a terrible time…to a MOST TERRIBLE TIME.
Luke 21:20-24
This is referring to a different time. One part is the near future, the other part is the distant future.. But he tells them it is NEAR.. this happened in 70AD, when the Romans invaded over a revolt.
(V21: What Desolation was this? The abomination that causes desolation as spoken by Daniel)
V23: which people? The Jewish People. .
V24 happened just as Jesus said.
One group after another came into Jerusalem… Foreign nations possessed Jerusalem.

The times of the Gentiles: the period between the 69th week and 70th week.

Isaiah 66:7
You need to know what this scripture was primarily written about.
BEFORE she travailed (Not when), she brought forth.

V8: when Zion travailed she brought forth her CHILDREN. (That’s different)

*v7 Interpretation:*
BEFORE JACOB’S TROUBLE, ISRAEL WOULD DELIVER THE MAN CHILD. (Remember the prophetic sign John saw in Rev 12:1-6. This is Before the tribulation will starts… The 1,260 days are the three and half years of the great tribulation)
Dan 7:25- Same three and half years referred to.
Dan:12:1,5-7: same period referred to.
*This would be a time of trouble as there never was as a nation. This would be worse than the Holocaust, or any other persecution Israel has ever faced*.
(Another reference:;Rev 12: 8-17)
During the tribulation period it will be very difficult to be a Jew or a Christian. The one world religion would be declared already. The one world Govt, generally speaking, would also be in place. Same as the one world economy.
These are calls that have already been made. When nations get weaker, they accept anything.
E.g. one of the ways to cancel CASH in any economy is to propagate information that the cash is one way to transmit the virus or disease.
Or any government could say, every employer must register their organization with Test Kits to test their employees daily and send the monitoring report to the Govt.
Because they would want to save their Jobs, everyone would become a policeman on behalf of the Government. Its already happening in some places in the United States.
Just imagine now, Grandparents greet their grandkids from afar, because they have been told they are the easiest people to contract the disease. So sad.

Now you understand why we are praying. It is not difficult to know where this is coming from.
They don’t want us to lay hands on the sick anymore. They would start doing ‘contact tracing’ instead of finding out who got healed.
The plans of Satan are so evil.

You’ve got to pray. You cannot rely on those who make decisions on the basis of how much money they got. Think about it.

We are far more effective in prayer than most people realize. That’s why we pray. . I just want to guide your prayers. E.g.
There’s no point praying for the virus because that’s over and done with.

*Zechariah 14:4-9,11,16*
V16- There will be people who are left in the earth because not all will be at the war of Armageddon.
Every year, they will go to worship the king (as nations)
V17: He is not looking at Individuals… It is the judgement of Nations. If they are not represented, they would not see rain..
V18-19… Family, refers to nation. Even a plague is promised as punishment to those nations that don’t attend the feast of tabernacles.

Jesus won’t tolerate any rebellious nation during the millennial reign.

Psalm 9:17
goat nations will be turned into Hell
Isaiah 14:4-9. (The leaders of Nations, for the things that they did at national level, will be thrown into hell).

Rev 20:13-15
Later Hell will bring them all out to face Judgement as individuals, not as nations.

We are praying and God is hearing us.
This is our responsibility as the children of God, to see with the eyes of the spirit and pray the will of the father into the nations of the world.

Greater is he that is in us than the devil that is in the world.
It doesn’t matter what forces are working against the kingdom of God. What matters is whether those of us in the kingdom are using our authority in the name of Jesus. ….
And we are using it.
This world will be stirred up in our direction, by the Holy Ghost that dwells in us. .this world will have no rest unless and until the will of the Father is brought to bear upon the nations of the world.

Even in this time and this day, THEY WILL NOT PREVAIL.
The word already told us that we do not war according to the flesh. Our weapons are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.
These weapons are in action right now!
AMPC *2 Cor 10:3-5*
We lead every thought and purpose of agents of darkness away captive into the obedience of Christ.

Go ahead and pray right now.

*Phase 4, Day 5 (Tuesday 28th April 2020)*

Welcome to today’s program.
Thank God for the understanding that he gives us in his word and in things that concern the kingdom of God….in preparing us for what he has prepared for us.
He never left himself without a witness.
Through the Holy spirit, his word is made known..and wherever you are today, that presence of the Holy spirit is there with you….To give light, hope, courage…to be your strength.

*Revelations 22:1
Who is the He?
Rev 21:9…
The Angel in this verse continues to speak.

When studying the bible, the context, the style of the writer and the message that the writer projects and the use of language in the time of writing matter. Otherwise, you would be forced to follow whatever the translators say.
The English version that Most of us have was, translated from Greek.
E.g..Every time you see Angel in the Book of Revelation, don’t just think of your usual Angel in English (e.g. Angel s with wings flying. angel Michael etc).

*For example… Case in point…*
Revelations 1:18-
Jesus was telling John to write..
V20: He said the stars where the Angels of the 7 churches.
If those 7 stars were angels of the 7 churches… and the candlesticks were the churches.. If these churches had people, then the Angels would be people.
A lot of times, prophetic signs could be mysteries requiring decoding by the spirit who gave them in the first place.

*Just in case, this example didn’t get down well with you, let’s look at Rev 2:1*
If this was an Angel in Heaven, how come John was going to write him a letter???

The word Angel could be translated as ‘Messenger’ in those scriptures. Which would mean, he is the Pastor of the church.

Using Jesus principle, he wouldn’t breach his teaching of entering a sheepfold without going through the Shepherd (the pastor). That was Jesus style. That’s how we know the ‘Angel’ was a man.

Those 7 churches were there at the time!

*Back to Rev 21:9-*
Before we continue…

In Hebrews 9:14-15
V15: By means of his own death…
A lot of people don’t get the man that is born again.
Christians were not the ones Jesus died for…they are the RESULT of his death..not the FOCUS.
He died for the whole world.

They which are called…. Which were in the old testament

1. Those before the testament.
2. Those in the testament.
3. Those in the new testament.
His death covered everything!!!

In Heaven AT THE MOMENT, we have 2 groups
1. Those who are there in their celestial bodies (those who resurrected with Christ)
2. Those without celestial bodies.
(those who died since after the ascension of Jesus)
When you get into that glorified state, you are not just there… You begin a new ministry.

*Revelations 22:1*
V2: when you see verses like this, stop using your brain. There are things you can only relate with, with your spirit.
… Its not the same river being spoken about in Ezekiel 47: 2,7-8.
(Stop asking ‘how can one tree be on both sides of the river? With your brain. Just say ‘Praise the Lord’. You don’t know everything. Imagine when it was said that a virgin would give birth…)

(Rev21:1, Isa 65:17, 66:22-24 reference to the new heaven and new earth)
(Isa 66:24
Do you know from time to time, when we are in Heaven, we could go and have a look at those who go to Hell? )

Rev 22:3- The throne of God and of the Lamb is ONE THRONE. Jesus will be sitting on the Father’s throne. (Colossians 1:19, 2:9.. The totality of divinity dwells in Jesus bodily. He is the embodiment of Deity).

22:5 – This description is about the City; the new Jerusalem as we discussed yesterday. This would be our new headquarters; our real one world government… Not the perverted version that the devil wants to bring in.

V6: The Angel said the words are FAITHFUL AND TRUE. They will surely happen.

V7: This is the voice of the Master now. (When we prophesy, we can start anyway, and suddenly we start speaking in the first person…so this is not unusual).
.
V8: Now John speaks
V9: The Angel rebuked John for trying to worship him. This was an Angel of the Lord, BUT was a glorified person like the rest of us. He was one of those who had passed on into a new level of glory and ministry. (“…I am thy fellow servant, And of thy brethren the prophets…”)
He told him to worship God.
Rev 5:6-9… Remember the Lamb was also worshiped in this scripture. Remember, at this time, old saints had RESURRECTED with Jesus and were already in Heaven in glorified levels with new ministries. “Thou hast redeemed US to God, by the blood”… Was what they said as they worshipped.
(Watch for Bible translations that have missing verses. Sometimes they twist verses based on their theology or background… That’s why we must know TRUTH beyond the letters).

Rev 19:8-10… This Angel also warned John not to worship him…Angels does have the testimony of Jesus! The testimony of Jesus is the purpose of the prophecy. The Angel was also a man who had passed into the Heavens.

Those in the old covenant, looked forward to the redemption until Jesus came. That’s why they are part of the bride of Christ, Just like us. That’s what Jesus Blood was for.

Rev 22:10-11 WHAT A WARNING!

V12: Jesus will reward every man according to his works.

(References)
Luke 14:14 when you do good things and people pay you back with evil…don’t worry. He will pay you at the resurrection of the righteous.
2 Cor 5:10-11 we will receive our reward One by one for what we have done…good or bad.
Since you have been born again, what have you done in the body? Be careful what you do in the body of Christ. It matters. You have been in that body since day one that you got born again.
(Other references: Romans 14:10-12, 1 Cor 4:5… We are *ALL* going to be praised even though it is a judgement. Not one will be condemned in Christ. *So what about the bad things Christians may have done?*
I Cor 3:10-15 every bad work will be burned. But the individual will be saved. Thank God. … But its not enough to just get in. Do more for God. Serve him with wholehearted devotion not just to get in, but because you Love him.
Romans 8:1-2 There is no Judgement *because* of what Christ did. You became death free and sin free.
John 5:24- when you’re born again, you are translated from spiritual death into the life of God. There is no Judgement for you. You HAVE everlasting life. .. On such, the second death (eternal fire) hath no power.

*Revelations 22: 13-*
V16: another mystery.. How is Jesus the father and son of David?
V17: what an invitation for salvation for everyone who hasn’t known Jesus.
V19: Gods plan originally was to have all of us with him. How could he take away someone’s part if it wasn’t there before..

22: The end.

Matthew 25:41
Everlasting fire was never prepared for Human beings. God doesn’t want anyone to go there. That place was designed for the devil and his angels.
When does God remove one’s name from the book of life? No idea. There is no scripture to prove that it is only at death.
In Exodus 32:32-33, death was not referred to. He didn’t say whether the sinner would die first.
So, what’s important is, LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR HIM. GET YOUR LIFE STRAIGHTENED OUT.
He also said ‘My spirit shall not always strive with man…’ If he keeps pushing, at some point, he may just not bother anymore.
2 Cor 5:14-15.
Now that you know that he died for all of us, live for him.

I invite you to receive this precious salvation from Jesus. On your own, you can’t live this life. He doesn’t want you struggling to live for him.
Ask him into your heart so he will impart your spirit with the life and nature of God.

*Phase 4, Day 3 (Sunday 26th April 2020)*

*Pastor Chris*

Welcome to today’s program.
I trust that you had some time of meditation and prayer today, and to view some of the things we have been discussing in the last weeks.
Gods word is truth. Absolute truth. Reality.

One of the things I tried to get across to you the last couple of weeks is the REALITY OF THE SPIRIT REALM.
LIFE BEYOND THE SENSES/PHYSICAL.

A lot of people admit that it’s real but don’t live like it is. They see everything from the human perspective. They don’t believe that its spiritual.
*Acts16:16-18*
From the outside, the girl didn’t look different from other people. She looked normal like everyone else.
It looked like there was nothing wrong with what she said.
The interesting thing is…she did this for several days.
But Why was Paul grieved in the spirit? Because His spirit recognized something that others who were listening to the girl didn’t understand. They didn’t have spiritual understanding.

Paul addressed the spirit by which the girl was speaking.

Would you know when a statement you are hearing that sounds nice/true is not from God???
Would you know when an announcement is made that sounds nice is not from God but the devil???
*All you see is not all there is!*

Even though we have a material world, there is a spiritual world that dominates the physical.
And when it comes to nations, we have to recognize that these things are real.

When Jesus was arrested by the authorities what did he say? He said ‘when I was out teaching in the temple, you didn’t do anything… But THIS IS YOUR HOUR AND THE POWER OF DARKNESS’.
When it was not their moment, they couldn’t take him. It was not their time.

Would you know when the forces of darkness are up against you?
Would you know when Satan is in operation in your city, country, the world; Would you know???

Without the knowledge of the word of God. You won’t know. All you’d have is speculation.
God said ‘My people are destroyed for the lack of Knowledge’.

Some Christians say ‘well, there is a normal life’. What is that?
You are either in God or with the devil. There is no middle ground.
That’s why Jesus said ‘You MUST be born again. That which is born of the flesh is flesh. And that which is born if the spirit is spirit’.
God takes only those who have received his salvation.
Remember what we read yesterday
“And anybody whose name was not found in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”.

As an individual, you can believe what you want to believe… But at the end of the day, what you believe or don’t believe will determine your fate.
Thank God for the bible that teaches and informs us.
The bible says ‘Prove all things…hold fast to that which is good’.
When you haven’t proved it, you may have some thoughts about ‘what if’?
Let no one deceive you with Vain words. For there are many deceivers.

RECAP:
Yesterday, we talked about the Judgement. We got to Revelation chapter 20 and saw some really important things.
.
Jesus comes from Heaven to the battle of Armageddon… They then turn from each other to face him in battle.
Jesus and his saints descend from Heaven in glory and power.
The fight was fruitless for those in the earth.

*Revelations 1:4-*
V6: This is not a promise or something that will happen in the sweet by and by. .
V7: Up till now, Jesus has got holes in his hands where the Romans nailed him. He also has a terrible scar hole on his side where they pierced him with a sword and blood and water gushed out.
The whole earth will mourn and wail because of him… Many will suddenly remember.
The Antichrist would make people believe a lie about Christians after they are raptured…

(Just like now…
There are people who have died in hospitals and couldn’t go home because they died. There is no autopsy, the family may not find out…but the record would say he died of corona virus… By the new laws drafted.)

But they will find out that everything they heard about Christ is true. And that the rapture is true.
Those who remember the truth will begin to cry.

There are many Jews who believe in Jesus Christ. But as a nation, they haven’t accepted him. (National salvation vs Individual salvation).
*Zechariah 12:8- 13:1* begins to take shape.

Why does God love Jerusalem so? Because of the Fathers. The patriarchs.
V10: Even though they had rejected him, God will pour out the spirit of Grace on them. All of Israel will be full of tears and crying. They will realize that this Jesus was the Messiah which the gentiles had been preaching.

What a day that would be!!!

The Antichrist and the False prophet will be thrown in the lake of fire for 1000 years before Satan joins them afterwards.

The Judgement:
Matthew 25:32-46
*This is the Judgement of nations*.
Jesus promised to Judge them for what they did to Israel; for their evil works.
Look at the United Nations today. How many times do they make decisions against Israel.

Why did the Brothers of Joseph hate Joseph? He did nothing wrong. He was just blessed.
Why do they hate Israel so much?
Why is Jerusalem always an issue?
There was a plan sometime ago for Jews to relocate to Uganda/Hitler wanted them to go to Magadascar. Why?

The prophetic word was given.. They hated him without a cause.

*Revelations 20:10*- This is after the millennial reign of Christ. (1000 years of peace)
Why is Satan going to deceive the nations AGAIN?

In the 1000 years of Peace, people are being born. The sheep had been separated from the goats. The sheep are the ones continuing… They are NATIONS that are called righteous because of their good works.
Remember, this is the salvation of nations.
(Nations consist of families, clans, countries)

During the millennial reign, any nation that doesn’t come to Jerusalem for the feast of Tabernacles, there will be no rain on their land. (Not the whole nation. This is representational)

Satan was not there during the millennial reign to deceive the new generations being born.
Satan is released, he deceives those that he can (a large army) and tries to fight again. (V7-9)

Rev 20:11.
Where are the natural people right now??? On earth.
We who are raptured already are in a ‘celestial space’. We already have that celestial ability. E.g. If we need to go to Jerusalem, we just appear there.
(Since not all the natural people would be in the defeated army, the other natural people would be in their different nations)
V 11: the earth shakes and the people on the earth have no place to hide.
V12-13: This is the INDIVIDUAL JUDGEMENT. Everyone who had died, will rise.
Those alive will also stand.
Where can you hide from Gods presence?
This is the first phase of the Judgement.
God is very legalistic about the details.
He wouldn’t want anyone to be said to be judged without cause.
Every tear is recorded
Every action.
Every strand of our hair is numbered.
There is no detail of our lives that God isn’t aware of.
V14; What is DEATH???
Death is a spirit.
Death is a force.
Death is a power.

The Antichrist, the false prophet, Satan, Death and Hell… Will be in the lake of Fire…

And WHOSOEVER was not found written in the book of life was cast in the lake of fire.

*The Overwhelming evidence is there in the bible… About the book of Life.*

The first time it is mentioned in the bible was by Moses.
*Exodus 32:32-33*.
Moses knew by Revelation.
Moses wrote the book of genesis.
He KNEW his name was in the book.
It was never about putting people’s names in… It was about blotting it out.

Do sinners have their names in God’s book?
*Psalm 69:18-28.*
Referring to enemies of the righteous.
Notice verse 28. That means their names are in the book of the living/life (NIV)
You can’t take out their names if their names aren’t there.

*Daniel 12:1-*: Everyone that shall be found written in the book.

Its the same book…
This book has been there since the old testament!!!
(Some say that it is when you get born again that your name gets written in the book, but that’s wrong)
(Philippians 4:3, Hebrew 12:23. Revelations 3:5, Rev 13:7; Rev 20:12; 21:27)

In all the scriptures read, we see that no ones name was added. Only some were blotted out.
(Some days ago, we discussed those cloned beings whose names were never there.)
The book of life belongs to the Lamb (Jesus)

Revelations 20:15
Remember those people who were destroyed in the second battle that Satan mobilized? Those people were all of those people who could not accept salvation.
Remember there were nations who could not take the mark of the beast and who did not also believe in Jesus because they were not under the domain of the Antichrist.

We the saints, will be part of those judging with Jesus.(ref 1 Cor 6:2-3)
If your name was never in the book of life, it would be wrong to check if your name was there. .

Whosoever was NOT FOUND… these are those whose names were there before.

It is those who were never there that followed Satan to attack the holy city. And they were all destroyed.

NIV Dan 7:9-10
This is God Almighty. This description is just like the description of Jesus in Revelations.
This is when the saints take over.
The thrones are set!!!

*If you have been a Christian a long time, it doesn’t matter the persecution you have faced. Or the insults. It is worth it!*
*Just keep pushing! Keep going! The glory ahead… Aaah!!! Haha!!!*
*One of these days he will come back for us. Keep pushing.*

*Revelations 21:1-*
V3-5
God himself is moving in…
Just like Grandpa moving in…who has got everything!!!.
What do you want?
V6: It is done… That means SETTLED. .as far as God is concerned, you can bet your life on it. Its a done deal.
V7-8. THIRD WARNING

V9- 14
One more time, the bride of Christ is being explained. . the Lamb’s wife/the bride of Christ is A CITY.
All those invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb are the individuals in the city.
15-21: the city is a four square city. The length and breath are equal. .the distance of one side is like a three and half hour flight. Not less than 570 miles per hour.
What a Beautiful City!!!
V 22-23: There is no temple or church inside. God and Jesus are the divine presence.
V24-27: the nations of them which are saved (the natural people who were saved…the sheep nations). They will walk in the light that is coming out of our city. No need for the sun or the moon. Their leaders and reps will bring their glory and honor to it.
The gates will always be open because there is no enemy. There shall be NO NIGHT there.

*Who are those in this city? Those who are at the marriage supper of the lamb!!!*

At this time, Gods original plan for man has worked. He has natural humans and he has the new creation.

All this, is about Jesus and what he came to do.
If you didn’t know this, you’d find that you may have a lot of Hope but it may not be good enough.
You must have THIS HOPE all the time.
This is why we are the way we are… As passionate as we are. Because of these truths.
You can’t know this and live life in an Ordinary way.
This is why we preach the gospel..this is why everyday I’ve endeavored to preach the word to you.

Say the salvation prayer with us and mean them from the bottom of your heart and God will hear you.

*YOUR LOVEWORLD WITH PASTOR CHRIS*

*Phase 4, Day 2 (Saturday 25th April 2020)*

I hope you’ve found a new inspiration to pray. Men ought always to pray and not to faint. God invited us to pray because he plans to answer us. We are praying the will of God.
Psalms 41:1
There are many people who when they get into trouble, they don’t get the ear of God why? Because they never consider the poor.
Actually Psalm 49 :7-20
People name their lands after themselves to immortalise themselves . But like animals they do die.
Sovereign words

Revelations 14:8
Both the woman on the Beast and the woman on the waters are called Babylon so how are they different?
Revelations 14:17
Revelations 14:8
Babylon is fallen (Rome)
Both women are called Babylon. The political Babylon will destroy the spiritual Babylon.

Revelations 13 :1 – 2
We see a man with certain traits that he got from the Beast that had been there before.
Revelations 12:4
One beast came from amongst the sea (which stands for people and nations); he is human. And the other ascends from the bottomless pit the one Europa is sitting on. The first beast takes on the character of the second. In the physical he is a man but in the spiritual, it’s a demon.

Daniel 10:12-20
The prince of Persia was evidently not of God because he withstood Gabriel. The devil assigns his demons to nations but that doesn’t mean God will just start sending his own angels. God only sends his angels on the requests of his children. Gabriel could have gone back to heaven any other way but he went back to fight. Because they were bringing Persia down.
Ephesians 6:10-18
You have to have the word of God on your lips and in your heart, we must pray!
Ezekiel 28:1-18
The governor of Tyrus was a human. A man and God said he would die and then people will know he was indeed a man.
The king of Tyrus however was a spirit. He was said to have been in the garden of Eden. So he was either Adam, Eve, the serpent or the one who came in through the serpent. The Bible went on to say he is an anointed cherub! The devil, he is the devil. A spirit sent forth from the devil carrying his traits and the comanded of the devil. So in fact Tyrus was being fulled by the devil. This is why we pray for leaders. They’re all saying it’s science but in truth science says this is crazy! They have been deceived. The antichrist was possessed by the devil.
Revelations 16: 13-16
It took just three. Just three demons to gather the whole world to battle. Just three.
Revelations 19:19-20
With the words of Jesus spoke killed all of them. The antichrist and the false prophet were captured. Remember the keys to death are in Jesus’ hands; they couldn’t kill themselves if they wanted to.
Revelations 20:1-3
One angel, with one hand took the devil and tied him up then cast him into the bottomless pit. He really is a weakling.
Revelations 20:4
The crucifixion was recorded in 3 languages.
Daniel 7:11
The people that were beheaded did not have a spiritual body. It was considered the most wicked killing to ensure that they do not have another life When you get raptured, the Holy Ghost glorifies your mortal body yurning it to your spiritual body.
Isaiah 24:20
Daniel 7:21
The people in the first are all who will be found in the new Jerusalem. The Saints of old, all that believed on the name of Jesus, the 144,000 Jews, the two witnesses and the tribulation saints
Revelations 20 : 6-11
Gog and Magog? This is an expression like “it’s his archimedees heel” or “it was their waterloo” it sybolises the that the defeat of the northern army would be similar to Gog and Magag’s.
Daniel 12:1-2
Revelations 20:12-14
The dead (doesn’t matter how they died) all were judged by their works. And anyone whose name was not found in the book of life was cast in the lake of fire. The lake of fire was not made for men. It was made for the devil and his angels. It is the second death it is a continous never ending death. All that truly matters is that your name is if that book. It does not matter what you have on this earth nor what people think of you.
Do all you have to do to not go to the lake of fire

Faith comes to us through the word.
You can’t get faith any other way.
Prayer is important and it’s in prayer that we make connection to align ourselves with Gods will.

The whole earth belongs to God..and not just in a casual expression or in a mere generic expression. It truly belongs to him. The nations of the world belong to Him. On the outside it may not look so, because in many places he is not honored or recognized, but it belongs to him…and one day He will show that it all belongs to him.
One of these days, Jesus will come back.
He said ‘Heaven and earth will pass way, but my word will not pass away’. The certainty of his word is superior to anything else you could ever imagine…. Anything in life, including the sureness of the appearance of the heaven and the earth.
You can bet on his word! It will never pass away. NEVER!!!

We are in the times of the signs(of the end times). There’s no doubt that the Heavens are in preparation for the coming of the Lord.
The scriptures tell us that first, the church will be caught away from this earth, and then the man of lawlessness will be revealed (The Antichrist).
So that day is not far and one of the things you have to understand about the catching away of the church is that, it was one of the extraordinary mysteries given to the Apostle Paul.
Remember, even the mystery of the gentiles coming into salvation was unknown to the closest disciples of Jesus. ..so much so, It was a major debate when the apostles and elders came together to consider the matter..they had no idea.
Matt 24:1-3
The disciples asked the Lord those three questions (v3)
If you look at those 3 questions carefully, they surrounded only the information that Jesus had given to them.
When Jesus said ‘I will build my church…’ They knew that Israel was the church in the wilderness…but they know that the Gentiles would be brought in.
Jesus gave the ministry to Paul to take to the gentiles even though it was inaugurated by Peter in the house of Cornelius.

In Acts 15, they debated, they weren’t sure that the gentiles were to come into salvation.

There are certain mysteries in the scripture. It doesn’t mean it is completely unknown. Its just revealed to a select few.
E.g. it was James who went back into scripture to show them that the Gentiles would come into salvation…. And then they accepted that truth.

Col 1:26-27.
1 Cor 15:51-53-55… In that one moment…so fast… We shall be changed into immortal beings in our physical bodies.
The nature that he gave us in our spirits, will swallow up the totality of our physical bodies.
The rapture will happen WHEN THE TRUMPET SOUNDS.
1 Thess 4:16-17.

One of the way we will know that the rapture of the church is very near is that the church will be preparing for it…the church will be conscious of it…
And there has never been a time in the history of this world that the church has been preparing for this. The message is going around the world to get Gods people for the coming of the lord.
DON’T BE LEFT BEHIND.

This was Gods amazing opportunity!!!!
Was there ever a time when so many people were holed up in their homes…and most to hear the gospel or Jesus Christ?
As we rebroadcast it again and again, people are hearing.
People are telling their friends and relatives…JESUS IS COMING.
We have never been as stirred as it is today. Get yourself ready. He will certainly come back.
He said he would.

When he shows up in Heaven, others will not see him…but we who are born again, will hear that trumpet and be caught up with him in the air, and go with him to Heaven…to come back with him…

Don’t deceive yourself that ‘Oh, we’ve been hearing this for long’. It is much closer now than ever. You don’t want him to find you not living for God. Its time to live for Jesus.

*REVELATIONS RECAP*

On Tuesday, we identified the woman on the water and the woman on the beast.
The focus in Rev 17:1, was the JUDGEMENT of the woman, which was why John was given the revelation.
(Kindly Refer to Tuesday Notes, Day 7, Phase 3)
Today, the European Union has reorganized itself to present its identity, not only in name as Europa, but with the very revelation and representation as shown to John.
These things are very important.

One of the things that Europe stands for today, is what you can call from the Bible, a reconstruction of the tower of Babel.
(See picture of poster used several years ago to represent Europe. Captioned: EUROPE: MANY TONGUES, ONE VOICE)
God confounded the construction of the tower of Babel through language. They stopped the building… Now look at the design of the EU building… As an unfinished building… To say ‘Yes, we may have many tongues, but we have one voice’. Clear Defiance.

Europe bought into the Greek Mythology and said ‘Yes that’s us’. If Europe is Europa, the bible identifies Zeus as the beast from the bottomless Abyss (A demon).
Europe is declaring a descent of demonic origin…so you see the hatred for God. For Jesus.
Why would you have policies that are completely Antichrist in nature? Its because of this origin.

Remember the Roman Empire covered Europe mostly.

If you want to know TRUTH, look into the scriptures.
What we are seeing today is the confirmation of the preparation for the platforms of the Antichrist.

Please note, *the Antichrist will not have control OVER ALL THE WORLD*.

REVELATIONS 18: ..
In the last few verses, there was rejoicing over the destruction of the whore.

*CHAPTER 19:1-*

V 1-6
There is great rejoicing in Heaven.
Several times, the Bible tells us of the burning of that city.
Europe will destroy the Vatican (the city) at that time.
Europe will set up a new world wide religion, so they would have no reason to have a church…so they will destroy the first thing that stands as the church in Europe.

19: 7…
Those in Heaven are
The 4 awe-inspiring creatures (4 beasts according to KJV)
The 144,000
The saints who ascended with Jesus
The tribulation saints
The 2 witnesses

In heaven there are 2 groups…. (All the above)… And All the saints who died and went to Heaven BEFORE the rapture of the tribulation saints. (Their souls were seen in Heaven… Saints who were beheaded, etc). Remember there was an earlier group of them who called on God to avenge them.

On Earth you’ve got..
All the wicked who don’t believe in Jesus.
1. Those who have /received the Mark of the beast
2.Those who didn’t receive the mark of the beast because they were in regions that the Antichrist didn’t have power over.
3. Children of Israel: God intends to fulfil his word to them as promised to Abraham Isaac and Jacob, as a people.

In Heaven there is a Party … The marriage supper of the Lamb is about to take place.

On Earth, there are wars
* Europe destroys the city
*The king of the south battles the Antichrist for Jerusalem.
(The devil is mad because he knows his time is short. Just 3 and half Years)

Daniel 11:40-
It appears that they don’t happen to win this war at this time.
V41- 43 the Antichrist moves from Europe to his headquarters in Jerusalem.
V44: He will hear news from the East (China) and the North (Russia) that will annoy him.. Which will cause him to annihilate many.
Rev 16:12-14
They (China and Russia) set out to attack the Antichrist in Jerusalem…
He hears news about their coming..
He gets mad, moves his HQ to Jerusalem…
They (China and Russia)come through, gain momentum….
V16- They gather for a final war showdown at Armageddon (the Hill of Meggido).

Simultaneously in Heaven, Rev 19:7 is on.
V8: the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
Psalm 45: 1-4.-13
Teach thee terrible deeds= Display awesome deeds (NIV)
This psalm is talking about a king well dressed for war, who had the Queen at his right hand.
He goes to the war having taken his bride.
He is talking about what happens immediately after the marriage supper of the Lamb.
Rev 19:8-
Some think there would be ‘other invitees’ to the wedding. They think the church is the bride, and other groups of righteous people are the invitees.

But they are wrong. Its not the individual saints that are the bride of Christ. It is the CITY. those who are called, are the individuals in the city.
Rev 19:10-13
This is JESUS…
Notice he is already crowned.
Notice he isn’t wearing a red robe, but a robe DIPPED in blood.
(Compare to the former being on a white horse that we studied earlier)

We were bought with a price. When you want to lay claims to what you bought, what do you take? A receipt.
*The receipt is the BLOOD.*
(Not a red robe)
Rev 17:3-4
Jesus robe is proof that he bought the whole field. The robe dipped in blood is proof of the purchase.
Jesus paid for your life.

Rev 19:14-16-
V 17: (What kind of a being can stand on the sun, and still can be seen?
Everything about God is Glory upon glory)

V 19: Those on earth had been fighting, but they don’t know that God drew them together to execute Judgement on them.
As they See Jesus coming, they all Unite to fight the one coming from Outer space.

Rev 6:12-17
Remember the opening of the 6th seal…
This scripture was at the end of the tribulation.
Matt 24: 29-30 (These are the words of Jesus himself)
This is what concludes the 7 year period.

JESUS IS COMING WITH THE ARMIES OF HEAVEN!!!!

Zechariah 14:1- 16(This is the prophet’s description as seen from Long ago)

Revelation 19:19-
V20: *The beast was captured*💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾.
He was thrown alive into the lake of fire STRAIGHT!!!! Direct Entry! Haha!!!!

Daniel also saw this…
Daniel 7:11 -14.
Matthew 24: 30, 31-
Who are the elect?
There is one more group that he seeks to save: Israel as a Nation!
He destroyed their enemies to save them.
He fulfils the promise.

There are some things you see in the Bible and you just see the mercy of God.
Isaiah 11:11-12
Remember after the first dispersion of the Jews, Daniels vision, then they were gathered back before the time of Jesus.
Then Jesus prophesied again about their dispersion. He said not one stone would be left upon another
In 70 AD it was fulfilled.
They were carried to all nations and scattered.
In 1948, their homeland were settled…Jews have been returning home..but there are more outside present day Israel than inside.

But on that day, he will gather all of the remnant back to Israel… And Jesus will Judge all nations for what they did to Israel.
Romans 11:26- 28 All Israel will be saved as a nation.
All Israel will gather with their little ones and they will weep and repent for what they did to Jesus.
Matthew 25:31-
V33- this scripture isn’t referring to Christians and Unbelievers. This is not our judgement. We will come down with him.

V34- 40
This is referring to the nations that persecuted the Jews.
In Germany, the Jews were so hated.
Antisemitism hasn’t stopped in the world.
Its a demonic thing that causes hatred.
Anyone that hates Jews, hates Jesus.
There are even some Christians that hate Jews because of the stories they heard.
V41-45
This is not the Judgement yet.

If you are not living for Jesus Christ, receive Eternal life TODAY.

Things That Must Surely Be

*YOUR LOVEWORLD WITH PASTOR CHRIS*
*Phase 3 Day 3 (Friday)*

Pastor Chris:
The book of Revelations is a complex but very interesting book. This is an opportunity to understand it.

Q&A:

Q: 1Thess 4:16 talks about the sound of the trumpet. Will it be audible to believers or everyone? Will we hear it by Faith?

A: It will be Audible to Christians. Its for those who will be caught up and those who are dead in Christ. Our lives as believers is by Faith, so it will be by faith. You trust that when it sounds you will hear it because the word of God told you so. Faith comes by hearing.
John 17:14-15. Jesus was specifically praying for the disciples here. Not the church.
For the Rapture, Jesus is coming for us.

Q: For one to be on earth you need a human body. When we return after the tribulation, will we have new bodies or the ones we had from birth?

A: We will have a glorified body. Our bodies will be changed. 1 Cor 15:51-52.

Q: what will happen on the day we are raptured?

A: That day is not going to be such a beautiful day for a lot of people. For some it is a blessing; for others it is a curse. Any christian who is left behind is simply because he wasn’t for the Lord but for himself. Period.
Its one way or the other.
Anyone left behind will have to go through the tribulation.
Luke 21: 31-36.

Q: what kind of body is the glorified body? When we come back for the millennial reign, Will it be with angelic bodies without feelings?

A: A glorified body is a celestial body…its the same like Jesus has now. The bible says when we see Jesus we shall be like him.
The terrestrial body is limited to this earth. It relates to our 3 dimensional world.
The glorified body has come into the power and glory of the kingdom of God and has the capacity to function in the heavenlies. It goes beyond the terrestrial atmosphere.
Jesus walked through the walls. He ate with the disciples. Jesus Body when he died was covered with clothing material… But he folded the clothes when he ressurected…Yet the disciples saw him DRESSED. he didn’t go to his house to get clothes. When Mary saw him, he was going to the Father to present his blood but he was in a body. When he came back to meet his disciples in Galilee, they touched him. They felt his glorified body.

*REVELATIONS CONT’D*

We got to the 6th seal yesterday.

Dan 11:45
The Antichrist breaks his treaty and moves into the temple by force.

Rev 6:12-17. (The result of the 6th seal)
Prior to this 6th seal some things happened
The 144k Jews, the Sun Clothed woman and the 2 witnesses come into play at the second 3 and half years.

Pls note that some parts in the book are not in Chronological order.

Chapter 7:1. *This is right after the 3rd seal…* (Chapter 7 is not chronologically after chapter 6. It is a parenthetical narrative)
The 3rd seal was the black horse. Inflation and destruction of plants.
7v1-3 is what was causing it.
V3: who are these servants of God which suddenly emerge?
(When you are born again, once you receive the holy spirit. You are sealed by the Holy Ghost).
V4- 8 – 144,000 were sealed from the 12 tribes if Israel. They are carrying out ministry preaching to the Jews.
When fierce persecution begins, they are taken away.
V9-15, 14:1-6. The 144k were raptured to heaven
More souls are saved on earth as preaching intensifies.
14: 14-16 (this period is close to the end of the second 3 and half years. The tribulation saints get raptured here). This is the reaping of the saints/multitudes seen in Chapter 7:9. It is not a sickle of Judgement.
James 5:7-8. Rev 7: 9-14.
There’s a huge difference between these ones and the souls which were under the altar without robes. These are resurrected and translated souls.
Rev 14:17-19
Jesus had the 1st sickle.
An Angel has the second sickle. He has power over fire. This is different.
This is very close to the end of the three and half Years. That’s the period that some of the most devastating things will happen on this earth.

Chap 8: 1
*The Seventh Seal*
There was silence in heaven for half an hour.
Is it figurative? (Note the consistency with a prophets language and consistency. E.g. Daniel used weeks of years. When you Study Daniel you must study his other writings to understand. John’s timing relates more directly with ours. But the slight difference is that at the time, One year was 360 days… While we have 365 days in a year. So when you want to calculate for John, you use 360 days for a year).
v1:
The silence in heaven for half an hour was not figurative.

V2-3
(John picks up the narrative from Chapter 6 on the opening of the seals)

*The seven Trumpets*
All the prayers of saints was on the altar of God with the Angel’s incense.
V5-7 -12
Judgement on the earth. One third of the trees and all green grass are burnt up.
God is taking vengeance for all the sins committed, wickedness done, and rejection of Christ.
1/3 of sea turns to blood.
1/3 of fish die.
1/3 ships destroyed.
Etc
(The event in Russia isn’t it at all)

V13: After the 4 trumpets had sounded, this Angel was saying the last 3 would be worse. They are woes/curses.

Revelation 9:1..
With the sounding of the 5th trumpet, the Armageddon begins.
V3-5.
Locusts that sting like scorpions (evil spirits from the bottomless pit)
When evil spirits or demons operate, they work from the background. Humans don’t know what is responsible for what’s going on.
These locusts will hurt men for 5 months. Men who don’t have Gods seal on them.
V 11-12: Abaddon means Destruction.
Apollyon means Destroyer.
This is the King of the bottomless pit.
They are behind what is going to be happening in the world. People will be in pains for 5 months without respite.
THIS IS JUST ONE WOE… 2 MORE COMING.

V 13- 21
These 4 angels were bound in the River Euphrates. Yes there are spirits that function in the water. Some are bound there. E.g. these 4.
These 4 would slay 1/3rd of human population with a 200 million army.
Still, the men left on earth will not repent. Despite all these woes. Why? They CAN’T… THEY TOOK THE MARK OF THE BEAST!!!!

At this point. Only 2 witnesses will be left preaching .

Revelation 10:1-
(This is another parenthetical discussion)

V6: time no longer (KJV) means, ‘no more delay’.
V7-10
Eating that word was bitter in his belly because of the Judgement contained.

Rev 11:1- (a parenthetical chapter as well)
The 2 witnesses are the last to be left on earth for 3 and half years. They will preach in mourning and sadness.
V4-6
no one can hurt them. They have power over the rain, to breathe fire, etc
V7- They will be killed by the beast that will come out of the bottomless pit (this is different from the angel abbadon that leads the locusts out of the bottomless pit). This beast is the spirit behind the Antichrist and Satan will give him more authority to do wickedly.

The bodies of these 2 witnesses will lie in the streets for 3 and half days…and everyone will see it. (Already we can view what happens in d world at the same time through the TV.)
People will watch them lie there with cameras and celebrate their death.
V11- 12.while the whole world watches, they will resurrect by the power of the holy ghost and great fear will fall on everyone…and they will watch ascend in the cloud. They will rapture.
V13-end… Seventh trumpet/3rd woe.
There is celebration in Heaven at this time, but on earth, it is the final woe.
Chapter 12: 1- (another parenthetical discussion)
V1- this sign isn’t literary.
V2-
The sun clothed woman. (Israel)
The red dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns. (Satan and his demons)
The Christ is the Man child. Only Jesus and his Church are to rule with the rod of iron.
Israel delivered this Man child.
V6- this happens at the Beginning of the second 3 and half years.
V 7-10
all this time, we haven’t seen the devil (just his demons) because he has been engaged in war with Michael the arch Angel.
Angels function according to Gods will. When we pray, Gods mercy is released and angels are dispatched.
V11- 12. Now the devil doesn’t have a place in the heavenlies. He can only stay on earth for a short time. And he is very angry.
The woman is hidden from Satan for 3 and half years.
V17- the remnant of her seed ( all through history, Israel always has a remnant when they have been overpowered by another kingdom and cease to be a nation).
Lucifer joins the war in the earth. .
The Jews who had been converted by the 144k will be persecuted by the serpent.

*Side note:*
How do you know which spirit is behind what action? How do you know? And what response should you have? Especially with regard to what the nations are doing now.. So many civil liberties are being eroded because Nations are being led in the dark. How do you put your life and hope with the government that doesn’t know what to do or have a compass to know what will work? Nations are just copying others. The leaders are so scared to touch one another right now.
They are even still studying the virus and coming up with new assumptions.
Better trust God for your life!!!!

Jesus told us to pray so that we may be counted worthy to escape these things. No matter what they are trying to replicate from the future.
This is not their time, so we are praying.
If we would pray, the work of the Lord will continue unhindered. .
2 Thess 3:1.
There were cities in those days where they were not allowed to talk about Jesus.
Satan is not after bars, clubs and social gatherings… He is after the church. That’s why we must Pray and not sleep like others do. We must use what we have… All the wisdom, knowledge, influence etc that God has given us. We must use ALL WE HAVE IN THIS CRISIS TIME.
We trust God that we will have one more sweeping move of the gospel around the world. It may happen in a way that we didn’t plan, but it will happen because God knows.
As a church of Jesus Christ, we will never be disadvantaged.
There is no enchantment against Jacob
Human beings will never amass the wisdom to destroy us. No technology is strong enough.

Pray. Thank God for his ministries and churches around them world. Pray for your relatives and friends that they will accept salvation. The time for games is over.
The coming of the Lord is near….at the doors. We’ve gotta prepare ourselves for his coming.

Did you miss Your Love world with Pastor Chris

*YOUR LOVEWORLD WITH PASTOR CHRIS DAY 5 WEEK 2*

Pastor Chris:

Its a very special time in Gods kingdom, and only through the spirit can we discern the times. We are in a special season both in God’s kingdom and in the world.
Things are shifting but not in the direction that Satan was planning.

I showed you a clip from February 2nd communion service, we will watch it again to help you get some important messages to help you understand what’s going on in the spirit. Things are happening in the spirit and we are very much involved.

Remember when the year began, through the spirit, we declared a prayer chain (pray-a-thon 2020). We started first week in January in different groups all over the world . and we coordinated the exercise to have 15 min sessions of prayer each, throughout the day and night.
God never intervenes in this world without people.

When we started, we probably didn’t know the implications. But we prayed for ministers, and nations and Gods people because changes were about to take place in the spirit. In the earth, changes were brewing. But God always needs his children to effect his own work.
Daniel, having being in exile with other Israelites, through the writings if Jeremiah the prophet, he found out 70 years were determined for them to be in that captivity. He could see things weren’t changing, So he went into prayer and fasting so that things would fall in line with Gods timing.

Timing is important.

When Jesus came and carried out his ministry in Israel, he wept over Jerusalem and he said they didn’t know the TIME of their visitation. The Lord they were waiting for had come to them but they didn’t know.
Not many understand how the kingdom of God works. Life is not all about the things you want from God… Money, a house, a job. Life is far beyond that.
People are the same irrespective of their condition.
The poor and the rich are exactly the same unless there’s a transformation in their heart.

The difference in circumstance is that when he was poor, he didn’t have the resources to carry out the evil that was in his heart. Money is an amplifier of character. Whatever you would have been you will be.
God wants a change in your heart. Except there is a change in your heart, you will also carry out the evil things in your heart

That’s why God puts his kingdom and his love first in your heart. Then from your heart, it will flow out to others. If you don’t have it in your heart, you can’t give it to others.

We are rounding this phase of the fast. Tomorrow we begin a phase of praise and worship. Because, the wicked and evil spirit that was responsible for the evil work around the world…I can tell you WE HAVE BROUGHT HIM DOWN. WE HAVE DESTROYED HIS SEAT.

This thing was never about human beings. Human beings can be used. Whatever role anybody played, good or bad, they probably didn’t know.

Eph 6:10-12 we fight against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms.
This is what has been happening. It is US that do the wrestling. The Bible tells us what we have to confront.
2 Cor 10: 3-5
Though we live through our physical bodies, the warfare we are engaged in, is not physical.

In the book of Judges. Several kings made war with Israel, in the days of Jabin. The captain of his host had allied forces, but the Prophetess Deborah said to Barak, God says ‘I will pull Sisera and his armies into the valley and deliver him into your hands’.
And something amazing happened..
They invaded Israel…
The Bible tells us, the Kings fought… WHAT KINGS????
KJV Judges 5:19-
This fight was in the heavenlies, while the one on the ground was going on. The real fight in the heavenlies determined what happened on ground.

The ground became marshy, torrential rains came down from heaven, everyone died save for Sisera who escaped and a woman killed.
Life is spiritual… That’s why we needed to fast and pray.
Satan doesn’t really care about what is happening in the world.
Nothing satisfies him.
You can’t give him ANY CHANCE.

THE kingdom of God is like a man saw a treasure in a field, and Bought the whole field just for it. The treasure is the church. Jesus died for the that treasure. That Was the price he paid.
As the anointed cherub, Satan had some insight into Gods plans.. But he just didn’t know how it was going to come.
That treasure was going to share Gods name, his seat.. It identified so much with God that Satan wanted it.

Before Jesus came. His authoritative name was reserved. He didn’t know the name but he wanted it and didn’t know how it would come.
All these many years with Satan’s destructive activities. He’s been after ONE THING ONLY: THE CHURCH.

Don’t look at the church as an organization. Its more than that. It is the BODY OF CHRIST.
Jesus has been given a name that’s above EVERY NAME
Phil 2: 9-10,5-9
Jesus got the name through humility and obedience while Satan was trying to get that name through pride and arrogance.
God gave the name to Jesus, and Jesus gave the name to us.

He said ‘whatsoever you do in word and deed, do in the name of Jesus’.
He gave us the legal authority to use his name.
Satan hates the church and always tries to see how he can hurt the church.

No matter how you are in your city… Always think about the church/God’s church (the body of Christ). This is why we break bread. He said ‘you are all one bread’. He said ‘do this in remembrance of me’.

Then, the bible tells us he took the cup and said ‘This cup is the new testament in my blood’.
A new will/testament had come in.
And we live on the basis of that testament. Yet there are many Christians who don’t know about that testament.
By that testament, whatever we bind on earth. Is bound in heaven.
We are sent by God to enforce his will on the earth.
We represent him.
When we speak, our words are not empty. They are spirit and they are life.

That’s why when you are born again, the life that you have is not the human life that you had of your mother. Your life is supplanted. You are not ordinary. You have no business being afraid of some virus, sickness or disease or anything.
NEVER ALLOW FEAR.

Life is spiritual.
Exodus 14:21
The children of Israel were to go through the red sea…God caused the waters to congeal on both sides while the Egyptians watched.

The Egyptians probably thought they were easy prey since the sea had divided. BUT… the lord Got involved in the fight (v24-28). He troubled the host of the Egyptians and took off their chariot wheels… (They got stuck. The horses had a hard time pulling the chariots. They also couldn’t run away because they were smack in the middle of the red sea). .
God spoke to Moses to stretch his hand… God always needs us. Because it is TEAM WORK.
NOT EVEN ONE EGYPTIAN ESCAPED BECAUSE GOD FOUGHT FOR ISRAEL.

There are times when the war that is brought to you is too much for you and you have to call the heavenly host.
Exodus 14:13-14.

Something is happening in the world. There is a CHANGE but not like Satan envisaged.

Daniel 10: 1-15, 20- 11:1
The angel that had Daniel’s answer was withstood for 21days by the Prince of Persia. The Kings of Persia in this scripture were spirit beings. In the earth realm, there was a kingdom of Persia. But in the spirit realm, the Prince of Persia and his beings controlled what was happening on the earthly Persia.
Even after the angel delivered the message, he had to go back to fight because another Grecian kingdom was coming.
(There was a transformation from Persia to Greece which happened in the spirit realm first).
This same Angel Gabriel continues in chapter 11. He confirmed and Strengthened the Human King, Darius the mede (he wasn’t a Jew).
Remember King Darius made decisions that Favored Israel.

We have powerful Angels in the heavenly realms who are working on our behalf.

In their minds, they had said ‘No more church gatherings’. They imagined a vain thing.
What??? That we will not gather? When God inhabits/lives in the gathering of his people? Yes we can meet online, but it is not the same.
Who is he that speaketh when the Lord commandeth it not?
You will yet see the gathering of Gods people. All over the world you will see them!!!! By the power of God’s spirit, you will see them.
🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
From day 1, I knew that was their dream, that’s why I said ‘let’s pray’. Satan can’t win.
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but Mighty through God… Pulling down imaginations and strongholds.

That’s why we pray!!!
Jesus told us WATCH AND PRAY!!!

Already, there are several cities that have opened and have asked Churches and Religious groups to reopen and have their meetings.

We will pray for all churches that are meeting in whatever cities that they are. Whatever the devil proposes to do is turned upside down. The church is not a place of sickness. No evil that is planned will prosper. As you meet, God will bless. And if any one sick comes in, they will be well because they came. All over the world. Amen 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

The best thing in any government is to leave the church alone. Wise leaders understand that. But when you trouble the church….
If you collide on this stone, you will be broken but whoever the stone falls upon, it will grind u to powder. Just leave the church alone.
There are those who through history planned for the complete extermination of the church. It never happened and will never happen. It is not possible to defeat the church.
When we pray, God hears. .that’s why we are always very peaceful. .because when you have power, you will be peaceful. The one in us is greater than he that’s in the world.

He told us ‘I will build my church and the gates of hell can never prevail’.
If you belong in the church of Christ, there are not enough demons to destroy you.
Flesh and blood are not your enemy. Your adversary is the devil.

Jesus said ‘in my name, you shall cast out demons’.
We have broken the power and influence over the nations of the world. We have cut him off.
Everyday, we pray ‘In the name of Jesus, Satan we cut you off the nations, the governments, our streets’… And God said CONTINUE….MOUNT THE PRESSURE.

You can only understand these things if you are spiritual.
1 Cor 2: 11-14.
The wisdom of God is speaking and working through us. And all Satan’s intrigues have failed.
Psalm 53: 1-5
V5… Powerful.
Psalm 34:1-8

The weapons of our warfare are Mighty in the Holy ghost. They are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds.

James 4:6-7
The Lord gives more grace. Thank God!!!
Resist the devil, and he will flee.
We don’t resist the devil with muscles or earthly things because he is a spirit being. And the word says if we resist him, he will flee.
He wasn’t referring to smaller demons…. If we resist THE DEVIL HIMSELF, he will run away as in flight and fright. Imagine if the ‘biggie’ is scared, what will happen to the smaller demons?
We have exercised our dominion in Christ. He is afraid of the name of Jesus.

I have shown you how to take our lives seriously, how to respond spiritually, how to pray. When we pray, something happens. And whenever the URGE to pray, PRAY!
EVERYONE WHO HAS THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL HAVE THE URGE TO PRAY. He is the spirit of prayer. He stirs our hearts to pray. He puts words in our mouths.

Every Christian should be yielded to the Holy spirit. From now, start living a spirit-led life. The coming of the Lord is near. Not much time left. The time is short. Everyday counts.
You need to have the coming of the Lord in your heart from now on. This is a great reminder if the day in which we are living. Now you have to consider that you are living for the Lord. Let him be first in your life. He should be your focus in ALL THINGS. The days of living for yourself as though you are a non christian are gone. The days of hiding your identity as a Christian are gone.
If you can hide your identity as a Christian, your faith is weak.
It is an exercise of your faith to demonstrate his Lord ship in your life.
Change how you’ve been doing things..
Prioritize your life from now on. It has to be different.
Start learning to share the gospel with others.
Talk to others about Jesus.
Become prayerful.
Have a plan of prayer…. Otherwise you won’t pray.
There are so many activities (useful and useless) that could occupy your time and you wont pray.
Prayer is not about asking for something you want.
You’ve got to have such tines where you are talking to God and not others.
Plan your prayer life. When are you going to pray. Set your phone alarm. If you are serious about it, there must be a way. Ask the Lord to guide you in planning your PERSONAL PRAYER SCHEDULE. and its better if you do it EVERYDAY.
Have a schedule for everyday. Its better because it helps you have a spiritual consciousness everyday.
You may ask ‘how long should I pray’?
You will know if you are not praying enough because it is a relationship with God.
Spend time praying and SAYING THE RIGHT THINGS.
The more time you spend in prayer, the more helpful it is to you. There is the edification of your spirit and education of your spirit that you get in prayer.
No one educates you like the Holy spirit. He teaches you and brings you information.
He enlightens you and guides you.

When you pray, keep writing materials close to you because he talks all the time and tells you what to do. God considers it important. You wouldn’t want to lose what he says.
It may not happen everyday, but when he does, you will need to write it down.
The Holy spirit is real. Take what he tells you seriously. If you will, he will talk to you.

Tomorrow we will fast from 6am to 6pm, but we will enter a phase of praise and worship.
On Sunday, we have a special Easter broadcast 6pm to 9pm showing on all stations.

We will start having a GLOBAL PRAYER DAY every quarter. Next one will be in June.

*Special Easter Service with Pastor Chris & Pastor Benny Hinn – April 12, 2020.*

*PASTOR CHRIS teaching*

The word “rapture” cannot be found in the Bible.

The disciples of Jesus didn’t know the participation of the gentiles in the church.

The same way they didn’t know about the rapture.

So at the time of Paul’s writing the verse below, he called it a “mystery”

1 Corinthians 15:51 – 52

1 Thessalonians 4:16 – 17

Only those who are ALIVE and REMAIN will be raptured.

John 15:4 – 8
To abide in Christ is to bring forth fruit.
Every branch that doesn’t bear fruit will be cut off.

THINGS THAT WILL SURELY BE

Rev 4:1-2
From revelation chapter 4 depicts a time that the church has been raptured.

None of the things mentioned there will be for the church.

The tribulation time is a 7years period but the actual tribulation is 3.5 years after the antichrist will break the treaty he signed with Israel and other nations.

Rev 19:1-9

“Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb”

Rev 21:2-9, vs 27

The BRIDE OF CHRIST is a city.
The CHURCH is the body of Christ and a part of the city.

In Christ is salvation, all old testaments saints have gone to heaven. When they died they went to Abraham’s bosom in hell. Those who didn’t go there are Enoch, Elijah and Moses. That’s where Moses came from to the mount of configuration because nobody was able to leave hades until after the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.

Matthew 27:51-53
Jesus was the first to come out of death and the old testaments saint trapped came out with Him.

Rev 19:10

Hebrews 12:22-34 – those written in the book of life

Hebrews 11:8 -16 – the description of the new Jerusalem. The city of God that we are going to be a part of. The old testament saints will be there too.

Rev 7:9-17 – Tribulation saints
Rev 15:2-4
Rev 20:4

All these people called tribulation saints were there at THE MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB. The Saints of old testament and those raptured alive will be there.

The supper takes place before the return of Jesus to the earth.

After the supper, suddenly 👇🏾

Rev 19:11-16

Jesus returns fiercely with a robe.
The robe dipped in blood, was his blood with which he bought us with.

Jude 1:14-15 – to execute judgment

Matt 24:30 – he comes out of heaven

Zachariah 14:2

____________________________________________________

*PASTOR BENNY HINN teaching*

with all that is happening right now, there is no doubt that there is a great persecution is coming for the church. There will be a great falling away of christians.

We need to be more focused on heavenly things and disconnected from earthly things.

Let’s not forget that the resurrection of Jesus is the foundation of our life.

Hebrews 11:10 – here’s a reversal of what Abraham was looking forward to

Hebrews 11:13-14 – they confessed that they were strangers and pilgrim on the earth.

If Abraham and his family were not mindful of the country they were looking for they would have turned back in the face of challenges.

They desired a better country.

The city will be 15,000 miles in every direction.

1 Peter 1:1 – regarded as strangers

This natural world is regarded as an old garment to be discarded – Psalm 102:26-27

People will say things are the same, nothing has changes not realizing that this world was 0mce destroyed by water and will be destroyed by fire – 1 John 2:17

There will be 2 sets of people
1. Those who will abide forever and
2. Those who will pass away

We have to understand as God’s people are heavenly
We cannot see ourselves as people who belong to this world.

1. He dismissed his past
2. He dismissed his present
3. He looked for a city – he set his affection on things above

So how should we be – 2 Peter 3:11

1. Live Holy Life
2. Looking forward to the day of the Lord
3. Occupy – stay active, preach the gospel

Don’t wait for zero hour – bring the day closer.

Because are the heavenly people rescued from the domain of darkness, we are a heavenly colony on earth.
Our thinking has to now be dominated with heavenly things.

2 Cor 4:18

We must be so captured in heavenly vision that we start living the heavenly life here on earth.

People that are too involved In earthly matters will not be captured by the heavenly vision.

Even when doing the necessary earthly things do not be captured by them, do not be MIND-FULL of them.

Philippians 3:12-14

We are to press and take hold of the prize.
The prize is the fullness of Jesus.
We have to gain the fullness.

This is not the time to be dustractes.
This is the time to embrace the scriptures like never before.
Clinge and never let go.

Pastor Chris (continues)

For those who aren’t proud of the Lord Jesus will be terrified in the day He will be admired

2 Corinthians 1:10

*Pastors and ministers to fast from Wednesday 15th April until 7days.* *Also go and meditate on the scripture below* 👇🏾
*Isaiah 62:1-7*

A Special Time in God’s Calendar

*YOUR LOVEWORLD WITH PASTOR CHRIS DAY 5 WEEK 2*

Pastor Chris:

Its a very special time in Gods kingdom, and only through the spirit can we discern the times. We are in a special season both in God’s kingdom and in the world.
Things are shifting but not in the direction that Satan was planning.

I showed you a clip from February 2nd communion service, we will watch it again to help you get some important messages to help you understand what’s going on in the spirit. Things are happening in the spirit and we are very much involved.

Remember when the year began, through the spirit, we declared a prayer chain (pray-a-thon 2020). We started first week in January in different groups all over the world . and we coordinated the exercise to have 15 min sessions of prayer each, throughout the day and night.
God never intervenes in this world without people.

When we started, we probably didn’t know the implications. But we prayed for ministers, and nations and Gods people because changes were about to take place in the spirit. In the earth, changes were brewing. But God always needs his children to effect his own work.
Daniel, having being in exile with other Israelites, through the writings if Jeremiah the prophet, he found out 70 years were determined for them to be in that captivity. He could see things weren’t changing, So he went into prayer and fasting so that things would fall in line with Gods timing.

Timing is important.

When Jesus came and carried out his ministry in Israel, he wept over Jerusalem and he said they didn’t know the TIME of their visitation. The Lord they were waiting for had come to them but they didn’t know.
Not many understand how the kingdom of God works. Life is not all about the things you want from God… Money, a house, a job. Life is far beyond that.
People are the same irrespective of their condition.
The poor and the rich are exactly the same unless there’s a transformation in their heart.

The difference in circumstance is that when he was poor, he didn’t have the resources to carry out the evil that was in his heart. Money is an amplifier of character. Whatever you would have been you will be.
God wants a change in your heart. Except there is a change in your heart, you will also carry out the evil things in your heart

That’s why God puts his kingdom and his love first in your heart. Then from your heart, it will flow out to others. If you don’t have it in your heart, you can’t give it to others.

We are rounding this phase of the fast. Tomorrow we begin a phase of praise and worship. Because, the wicked and evil spirit that was responsible for the evil work around the world…I can tell you WE HAVE BROUGHT HIM DOWN. WE HAVE DESTROYED HIS SEAT.

This thing was never about human beings. Human beings can be used. Whatever role anybody played, good or bad, they probably didn’t know.

Eph 6:10-12 we fight against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms.
This is what has been happening. It is US that do the wrestling. The Bible tells us what we have to confront.
2 Cor 10: 3-5
Though we live through our physical bodies, the warfare we are engaged in, is not physical.

In the book of Judges. Several kings made war with Israel, in the days of Jabin. The captain of his host had allied forces, but the Prophetess Deborah said to Barak, God says ‘I will pull Sisera and his armies into the valley and deliver him into your hands’.
And something amazing happened..
They invaded Israel…
The Bible tells us, the Kings fought… WHAT KINGS????
KJV Judges 5:19-
This fight was in the heavenlies, while the one on the ground was going on. The real fight in the heavenlies determined what happened on ground.

The ground became marshy, torrential rains came down from heaven, everyone died save for Sisera who escaped and a woman killed.
Life is spiritual… That’s why we needed to fast and pray.
Satan doesn’t really care about what is happening in the world.
Nothing satisfies him.
You can’t give him ANY CHANCE.

THE kingdom of God is like a man saw a treasure in a field, and Bought the whole field just for it. The treasure is the church. Jesus died for the that treasure. That Was the price he paid.
As the anointed cherub, Satan had some insight into Gods plans.. But he just didn’t know how it was going to come.
That treasure was going to share Gods name, his seat.. It identified so much with God that Satan wanted it.

Before Jesus came. His authoritative name was reserved. He didn’t know the name but he wanted it and didn’t know how it would come.
All these many years with Satan’s destructive activities. He’s been after ONE THING ONLY: THE CHURCH.

Don’t look at the church as an organization. Its more than that. It is the BODY OF CHRIST.
Jesus has been given a name that’s above EVERY NAME
Phil 2: 9-10,5-9
Jesus got the name through humility and obedience while Satan was trying to get that name through pride and arrogance.
God gave the name to Jesus, and Jesus gave the name to us.

He said ‘whatsoever you do in word and deed, do in the name of Jesus’.
He gave us the legal authority to use his name.
Satan hates the church and always tries to see how he can hurt the church.

No matter how you are in your city… Always think about the church/God’s church (the body of Christ). This is why we break bread. He said ‘you are all one bread’. He said ‘do this in remembrance of me’.

Then, the bible tells us he took the cup and said ‘This cup is the new testament in my blood’.
A new will/testament had come in.
And we live on the basis of that testament. Yet there are many Christians who don’t know about that testament.
By that testament, whatever we bind on earth. Is bound in heaven.
We are sent by God to enforce his will on the earth.
We represent him.
When we speak, our words are not empty. They are spirit and they are life.

That’s why when you are born again, the life that you have is not the human life that you had of your mother. Your life is supplanted. You are not ordinary. You have no business being afraid of some virus, sickness or disease or anything.
NEVER ALLOW FEAR.

Life is spiritual.
Exodus 14:21
The children of Israel were to go through the red sea…God caused the waters to congeal on both sides while the Egyptians watched.

The Egyptians probably thought they were easy prey since the sea had divided. BUT… the lord Got involved in the fight (v24-28). He troubled the host of the Egyptians and took off their chariot wheels… (They got stuck. The horses had a hard time pulling the chariots. They also couldn’t run away because they were smack in the middle of the red sea). .
God spoke to Moses to stretch his hand… God always needs us. Because it is TEAM WORK.
NOT EVEN ONE EGYPTIAN ESCAPED BECAUSE GOD FOUGHT FOR ISRAEL.

There are times when the war that is brought to you is too much for you and you have to call the heavenly host.
Exodus 14:13-14.

Something is happening in the world. There is a CHANGE but not like Satan envisaged.

Daniel 10: 1-15, 20- 11:1
The angel that had Daniel’s answer was withstood for 21days by the Prince of Persia. The Kings of Persia in this scripture were spirit beings. In the earth realm, there was a kingdom of Persia. But in the spirit realm, the Prince of Persia and his beings controlled what was happening on the earthly Persia.
Even after the angel delivered the message, he had to go back to fight because another Grecian kingdom was coming.
(There was a transformation from Persia to Greece which happened in the spirit realm first).
This same Angel Gabriel continues in chapter 11. He confirmed and Strengthened the Human King, Darius the mede (he wasn’t a Jew).
Remember King Darius made decisions that Favored Israel.

We have powerful Angels in the heavenly realms who are working on our behalf.

In their minds, they had said ‘No more church gatherings’. They imagined a vain thing.
What??? That we will not gather? When God inhabits/lives in the gathering of his people? Yes we can meet online, but it is not the same.
Who is he that speaketh when the Lord commandeth it not?
You will yet see the gathering of Gods people. All over the world you will see them!!!! By the power of God’s spirit, you will see them.
🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
From day 1, I knew that was their dream, that’s why I said ‘let’s pray’. Satan can’t win.
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but Mighty through God… Pulling down imaginations and strongholds.

That’s why we pray!!!
Jesus told us WATCH AND PRAY!!!

Already, there are several cities that have opened and have asked Churches and Religious groups to reopen and have their meetings.

We will pray for all churches that are meeting in whatever cities that they are. Whatever the devil proposes to do is turned upside down. The church is not a place of sickness. No evil that is planned will prosper. As you meet, God will bless. And if any one sick comes in, they will be well because they came. All over the world. Amen 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

The best thing in any government is to leave the church alone. Wise leaders understand that. But when you trouble the church….
If you collide on this stone, you will be broken but whoever the stone falls upon, it will grind u to powder. Just leave the church alone.
There are those who through history planned for the complete extermination of the church. It never happened and will never happen. It is not possible to defeat the church.
When we pray, God hears. .that’s why we are always very peaceful. .because when you have power, you will be peaceful. The one in us is greater than he that’s in the world.

He told us ‘I will build my church and the gates of hell can never prevail’.
If you belong in the church of Christ, there are not enough demons to destroy you.
Flesh and blood are not your enemy. Your adversary is the devil.

Jesus said ‘in my name, you shall cast out demons’.
We have broken the power and influence over the nations of the world. We have cut him off.
Everyday, we pray ‘In the name of Jesus, Satan we cut you off the nations, the governments, our streets’… And God said CONTINUE….MOUNT THE PRESSURE.

You can only understand these things if you are spiritual.
1 Cor 2: 11-14.
The wisdom of God is speaking and working through us. And all Satan’s intrigues have failed.
Psalm 53: 1-5
V5… Powerful.
Psalm 34:1-8

The weapons of our warfare are Mighty in the Holy ghost. They are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds.

James 4:6-7
The Lord gives more grace. Thank God!!!
Resist the devil, and he will flee.
We don’t resist the devil with muscles or earthly things because he is a spirit being. And the word says if we resist him, he will flee.
He wasn’t referring to smaller demons…. If we resist THE DEVIL HIMSELF, he will run away as in flight and fright. Imagine if the ‘biggie’ is scared, what will happen to the smaller demons?

What do you See

I saw this beautiful piece on Pintrest via google search, I needed a trendy style to make with my newly acquired fabric and I stumbled on the photo, Now, I have heard clothiers say stuff like the fabric is speaking to me and they end up making gorgeous and lovely pieces While some others can only see what you see in the fabric and all they hear is what you have told them, You need to understand that those two people will never get the same results.
The question here is how do you see?
What does your craft say about you?
What will you do to make an ordinary anything or anyone (As the case may be) become extraordinary because of what and how you see?
That is one beautiful thing God does with all our lives (1Cor 1:27) He has seen the you that you are yet to be acquainted with.
Don’t give up on God,He’ll never give up on you.
God makes you rich without adding sorrow. (Pro 10:22)

Motherhood in Perspective

Hello lovelies!

Trust you’ve been happy

The title above was inspired by recent events in my life as a Mom and some of the most beautiful “experiences” I have had on the Job (chukles) and I will be sharing quotes or may I refer to them as gold nuggets dug out of Success.com

Have you ever been in a gathering or any place and your child acts out his/her age then folks around look at you with their judgmental eyes full of utter disdain and they put their very best efforts forward to get you to understand how they feel about your parenting style as a mom, this list of people includes; Friends, Family, Colleagues and Passersby, Strangers e.t.c Some will actually dare to say that you know nothing about motherhood, all under the guise and hypocrisy of the african abi na Nigerian /Yoruba people’s proverb “Agba kii waloja ki ori omotuntun wo” … lol

Literal Translation ( An elder will not be at the market place and a child’s head is positioned wrongly)

I respect elderly people (Please make no mistake about this)especially those who truly mean well and desire to participate in the proper upbringing of children, in my mother’s tongue they are referred to as “Abiyamo tooto”

It’s the attitude of the aforementioned that actually baffles me, although like some say about me, “she has created an imaginary world around herself like she doesn’t live in this land”Well, I am non-conformist like that. (Shrugs)

I believe that God genuinely has a plan for this world and He’s mindful of every individual here.

Like I said initially, a set of quotes/ gold nuggets inspired me about the topic of discussion and I thought to share with you especially Moms dealing with the need to please you already know who (shrugs again )

May I start with my thought on the subject and what I would like to call my conclusion;

With this first point of mine in mind, please, be very polite the next time you feel the emotional pressure to be disappointed at your child and make sure they also get the message ..Smiles (abi?)

Be determined to stay alive and always be there, which is by structuring your life according to God’s principles for living. I recommend a good study of the Bible

Here are the Gold Nuggets as mentioned, I have assisted by publishing them in their framed forms below.

I look forward to reading your comments as you share your experience.

with love,

DON’T LET THEM PERISH WITHOUT GOD .

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DON’T LET THEM PERISH WITHOUT GOD .

Thursday, February 28th .
Pastor Chris

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved (John 3:17).

Imagine that you have friends or relatives who aren’t born again or people who work with you who aren’t born again; don’t let them go to hell! You need to weep and cry for their salvation. In your intercessory prayers, you need to wail and travail for their souls, that the light of the glorious Gospel would shine in their hearts. You need to pray for them knowing the terror that awaits them, until you’re assured of their salvation. Don’t take this lightly.

*(BREAKING NEWS: YOU CAN GET A FREE COPY OF MARCH RHAPSODY NOW, THIS IS A DEMONSTRATION OF HUNGER FOR THE WORD 👍🏽https://bit.ly/2A4B0jR)*

Think about your uncles and aunts; think about your cousins, your spouse, your children; don’t let them perish without God! Don’t let them go to hell! Do you know what it is to be in the darkest place for eternity, and never have hope of coming out?

Your presence in your home, school, workplace, neighbourhood, estate, city or country isn’t for a game. It isn’t just for you to be happy and celebrate that you’re born again; you must be concerned for the salvation of others. You’re a saviour to your world. You were sent to save others.

You’re on earth and alive to do the Lord’s work; to win more and more people to Jesus Christ. We’ve got to snatch them out of hell; some of them are already so close, and if we don’t rescue them, they’ll slip right into it. We must not let them!

The Lord has committed to us the ministry of reconciliation, and faithfully, we must keep carrying out our ministry, turning men from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God.

*PRAYER*

*Blessed Father, I thank you for making the Gospel heard and received in my world, and your righteousness established in the hearts of men. Indeed, the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ. The Lord reigns forever and ever. Amen.*

*FURTHER STUDY:* *||* *Matthew 24:14* And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. *||*

*||* *2 Peter 3:8-10* But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. *||*

Embrace Your Uniqueness

Some years back as a much younger lady, a gentleman looked at my hair and asked me if i had sprayed the patch, i wasn’t so shocked people thought so cos i was definitely too young at the time to have as much as i already did, oh! No sir! I replied, then he said it’s a symbol of wisdom and that i should make sure i read a lot and later in life i will understand what he means.
Well, several years have come and gone, profound thoughts cross my mind and i voice a few from time to time, i have shared opinions on several topics also i find my self saying things and wondering how they came about.

I have said things that authorities on those subjects think the same and then those who’d heard me say them would be like, Deola you said this before.#Weird
Now, this isn’t to say the wisdom came from my hair, but as i sat in service on Sunday 3rd Feb the idea ofthis post came and i received a direction to post it exactly like this.
Perhaps, it will show up as a post somewhere by someone the world looks up to, i would like to say great minds think alike.

I am proud to be a product of Igbo land – Chimamanda Adichie

Dear UBPer,

How have you been?

Perhaps, you would find the below transcribed speech as inspiring as I did,

Do enjoy reading and let me know your thoughts in the comment section.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie ladies and gentlemen!!!!!!


…Local language preservation leads to development
Being excerpts of Chimamanda Adichie’s speech at the just held Face of Okija thought leadership and beauty pageant in Anambra, where she talked on different issues like the need to be proud of our mother tongue in communication, preserving our languages for growth, the benefits of getting further education by the Igbos and other salient topics.

My father is from Aba in Nchikoka Local Government Area and my mother from Munachi in Dunukofia Local Government Area, both in Anambra and I grew up in Nsukka in Enugu state. All of those towns are important in my sense of Identity and so I am thrilled to be here speaking in Igbo land.

I am proud to be a product of Igbo land; Igbo land produced that great political and cultural colossus, Nnamdi Azikwe.

Igboland produced that mathematics genius, Professor James Esielo

Nkem Dora Akuyili (RIP)

, Igbo land produced Nigeria’s first professor of statistics, a man I also happen to call daddy, Professor James Adichie.

Igbo land produced the first woman to be the registrar of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, a woman I also happened to call mummy.

Igboland produced great writers, if

Chinua Achebe

, Flora Nwapa

and Chi Emecheta

and Professor Chukwuemeka Ike

had not written the books they did, when and how they did, I would not have had the emotional courage to write my own books and so today I honor them and I stand respectfully in their shadow.

I also stand in great pride in the shadow of so many other daughters and sons of Igbo land. We have much to be proud of in Igbo Land, we have many from whom we can take inspiration so I want to start today with a message for all the young people here.

MESSAGE TO THE YOUNG PEOPLE

‘Consider yourself a life-long student never stop learning’ I have a post graduate degree but I consider myself a student, a person who will always be eager to learn. I want to ask you to get much formal education you can and also I want to say to you; stay in school.

Even if you want to start a business you will be a better businessman or woman if you are literate, if you can think critically and these are all things one gets from education and I say this, particularly because there are many of us in Igbo land that thinks that what matters is business.

And then education is not just what somebody teaches you in school, education is also about the effort you make. Reading is essential and not just reading for school exams, I mean reading outside what you are asked to.

When I was growing up I read everything I could find, and of course, I grew up at a time when the internet was not at its ubiquitous presence as it is now. I know that the internet is here to stay, and I think the internet can be good or bad depending on how we use it.

So, you can use the internet to waste your time, read stupid gossips online and you can get into meaningless arguments on Facebook or you can use your data to educate yourself. You can read quality newspapers online, watch a video that teaches you something. The internet is full of free classes that you can access easily. Learn; think of each new day as an opportunity to learn something new.

One of my interests is Pre-Colonial Africa, I am very curious about whom and what we were before colonialism came. Now, most of recorded history about Igbo people and about many other ethnic groups in Africa came from foreigners.

Men and women who did not speak the language and do not understand the nuances of the culture which means we have to read everything they write with a certain level of skepticism but what is consistent about all of the books I have read about Pre-Colonial Igbo land is that the Igbo people valued integrity, they were known to be frank, known to be people who do not pretend and people who valued open communication between the old and the young, parents and their children and to be people who believed in individual achievements but also felt that consensus is the best way to govern a community.

VALUE OF THE IGBO PEOPLE

Thinking about communication as a value of the Igbo people, I thought about a young woman I know in Lagos. She is twenty-five years old and she’s from Anambra state and she said to me that she did not want to come back to her home town for Christmas. When I asked why? She said she is under so much pressure from her parents to get married and she said they don’t just want me to marry; they want me to marry a rich man.

Recently as two years ago, she said, if she mentioned a boy’s name to her parents they will shout at her because she wasn’t supposed to have a boyfriend. And of course one wonders how she’s supposed to meet the man that will be her husband today. Most of all, what touched me while talking to her was when she said; I cannot talk to my parents.

MESSAGE TO PARENTS

So I want to ask parents here today, particularly parents of teenagers. Please keep communication open between you and your children. Many parents today teach their children how to fear them but not to respect them. Fear is not respect, you can beat fear into a child but respect is what a parent earns.

Don’t shut your children up, listen to them. Give them advice without shouting. Actually, if you don’t shout they are likely to hear you better and as you give advice, remember the fallings of your own youth, nobody is perfect.

I want to suggest today that we all take up the name, ‘ekweme’. Let us not only talk but let’s also act and let us do as we say. Some years ago, I ran into a woman in Enugu, a woman who is an old family friend. She was with her little son, I said Kedu to the boy and the woman said very quickly no he doesn’t speak Igbo, he speaks only English. What struck me was not just that this child does not speak Igbo but the mother said it with so much pride. She was proud that her child did not speak Igbo, why I asked her and her reply was that speaking Igbo will confuse him and I want him to learn to speak English well.

So later when we mentioned her son’s school, she mentioned that he was taking piano lessons and French lesson. And so I asked her if learning Igbo will confuse him would learning French also confuse him? The woman’s reason that two languages will confuse her child sounds reasonable on the surface but is it true? It is simply not true.

We know children have the ability to learn different languages, and in fact, we know being bi-lingual or multi-lingual help children in areas outside languages. I don’t really need to read studies about this, I am proof. I grew up speaking Igbo and English at the same time and considered them both as my first languages and I can assure you in my forty-one years on earth I am yet to be confused by that.

I’m actually learning to improve my French and learn Swahili and Hausa maybe then I would be confused. My sister, my parent’s first child was born in the US when my father was a doctoral student. My parents made the decision to speak only Igbo to her because they knew she would learn English, they were determined that she would speak Igbo and they did and I can assure you that my sister is also not confused.

When I had my daughter three years ago, my husband and I decided we would only speak Igbo to her. She now speaks Igbo and people are always shocked particularly the Igbo people when they hear her speak.

I deeply love both Igbo and English; English for me is the language of literature and philosophy. But Igbo is the language of emotions, humor, and laughter. Igbo is the enduring link to my past, it is the language in which my great-grandmothers sang.

Sometimes when I hear the old people speak Igbo in my hometown, Aba I found myself wishing that my own Igbo were not so Anglo-sized. I am full of admiration of the complexity of their language and the proverbs that they used and I am in awe of the culture that produced this poetry because that is what the Igbo language is when it is spoken well – it is poetry.

And so to deprive our children of the gift of this language at a time in their lives when they can easily absorb it is an unnecessary loss. We now have all over Igbo land grandparents who cannot talk to their grandchildren because they have an imperial barrier between them.

Even when the grandparent speaks English there is often an awkwardness in the conversation and the losses made worst by imagining what it could have been, the stories that could have been told, wisdom and history that might have been passed down to their grandchildren and most of all the sense of identity that comes with knowing one’s language.

Language is not just about communication it’s about word feel. Some people argued that language is the only thing that makes a culture but I disagree. I think identity is much more complex, I think that culture is really a way of looking at the world and so there are Igbo people who do not speak the language but that does not necessarily make them any less Igbo.

In fact, I think for the young people today who do not speak Igbo we cannot hold them responsible. It is their parents that we must hold responsible.

The great Ghanaian writer, Ammah Attetuh ask a question in her novel Changes; “Why have we insisted on speaking about ourselves in the same condescending tone that others have used to speak of us?” There are other Igbo and Igbo parents who don’t necessarily think Igbo would confuse their children, they just think that Igbo is not just that important after all its small language spoken only in South-Eastern Nigeria and it is not important to the newly globalized world.

So as one parent said to me, it is indeed true that the world is increasingly global but to succeed in this global world does not mean giving up on who we are. It means keeping what we are and adding to it.

I remember being very impressed when I went to Iceland by the effort the people of Iceland put towards preserving their language. Iceland is a tiny country with a population less than that of Igbo land. Many people there speak English but speaking Icelandic is very important to them and it is not because Iceland is the next China.

Nobody is learning Icelandic as people are learning Mandarin. It is instead because the people of Iceland value their language. They know it is a small language that does not generate any economic power but they do not say ‘kede be di e che’ because they understand there are other values that language has beyond the material and economic.

Language is the constructs of culture, the end of language marks the beginning of the end of culture. And this I think is giving value to who we are and to our culture

To value something is to believe that that thing matters and also to act that you believe that it matters. The knowledge of Igbo can lead to an innate self-confidence that will, in fact, be essential for success in any job interview and confidence comes from knowing who you are.

I am today considered a global citizen which I think means I am comfortable anywhere in the world, but I know this is primarily because of the pride that I received being raised by parents who were academics and very much rooted in the Igbo culture.

Having confidence in your culture does not mean you have to be ethnocentric or you feel your culture is better than others, what it means is that you are satisfied with what is yours. And so there will be no need to dehumanize others.

I am very proudly Igbo, Nigerian, and African and I am very curious about other African Culture.

I am not trying to romanticize Igbo culture, Igbo culture is not perfect. I quarrel strongly with a number of things in Igbo Culture, quarrel with the patriarchy and quarrel with the argument that uses culture to silent descent.

I quarrel with the people who say whenever a woman tries to assert her full autonomy that it is not our culture. Well, driving cars is not also our culture but we all drive cars because car driving benefits as a community. So if indeed it is not our culture that women are considered full and equal members of the society then we must make it our culture. We must make inequality our culture because it benefits all of us. Unless we can tap into the potential of every single human being whether male or female we would not fully succeed as a society.

We can begin today by saying yes to integrity and no to mediocrity. I will like to end with another message for young people. I will like to ask to; please do not judge leadership by the amount of money a leader has or can share or the amount of noise he or she can make. Judge leadership with the amount of testimony by ordinary people and how that leadership has changed their lives.

I want to ask you always to be courageous; courage is not the absence of fear. Courage means you have fear but despite your fear, you still try. Always try

Finally, to the young people don’t be entitled. Do not feel anybody owes you anything and work hard. Say yes to integrity and say no to mediocrity.

The wisdom of The Just

*EXPECTANT OF HIS SOON RETURN*

*RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL* (FREE JANUARY PDF => https://bit.ly/2A4B0jR)

Saturday, January 26th

Pastor Chris

*…this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven (Acts 1:10-11).*

Make no mistakes about it, the Lord’s return is closer than many realise. Don’t be deceived by those who say He’s not coming again; the Scriptures already testified of His return, during which the rapture of the Church will take place. And at the rapture, only those expecting Him would be taken to heaven.

So, are you expecting Him? You can tell from the way you live your life every day. Some believe the rapture is going to take people by surprise, like they’ll be swept off their feet; no! The rapture of the Church is going to be by faith. It’ll be an act of your faith to be raptured when it’s time. That means when you hear the trumpet, you must put your faith to work and go! Hebrews 11:5 says, _*“By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him….”*_

Some people will be struck with fear when they hear the trumpet, and fear won’t let them leave. This is because they weren’t expecting Him. The Bible says, _*“…and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation”*_ (Hebrews 9:28). There has to be an expectation. It’s for the same reason that Paul said, _*“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord…”*_ (1 Corinthians 15:58).

If you’ve been living for Him, doing His works and bearing fruits of righteousness, happy are you! But if you haven’t, it’s time to make a change, so that when He comes, you’ll be bold in His presence! Your faith will be activated and you’ll be amongst those that’ll be caught up to be with Him forever! _*“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord”*_ (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). Hallelujah!

*CONFESSION*

*I’m bearing fruits of righteousness, giving the lives of men and women in my world a meaning, as I await the soon return of the Master. My faith is effective and effectual, producing required results to the glory of His Name. Amen.*

*FURTHER STUDY:*

*1 Corinthians 15:52-58*
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must] put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory? 56 The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law. 57 But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

*Matthew 24:27*
For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

2019 IS NOT BRINGING YOU ANYTHING

”LIFE WILL NOT GIVE YOU WHAT YOU DESERVE,YOU’RE THE ONE TO TAKE FROM LIFE WHAT YOU DESERVE’

What will 2019 be for you?

Are you aware that 2019 isn’t bringing anything for you?

it is what you make of your life in 2019, It’s what you’ve been creating with your words a long time ago, that’s what you’ll make of it.

You have a responsibility!

Christianity is a life of responsibility. You must take responsibility, God says I put before you life and death, you are the one to choose not God. We are responsible for what we become,and have In life.

Life will not give you what you deserve,you’ll take from life what you deserve. You can’t blame your parents for being poor but you are responsible for remaining poor. Your life is like a garden or farm,if you leave it empty,things will still grow and certainly,it’ll be what you don’t like. So,take responsibility for your life. Deuteronomy 2:3. Movement and progress aren’t the same thing. Not just activities,God wants us to make progress. God is telling you,Turn you Northward meaning forward and upward movement. God is telling you you’ve been counting that level of money for too long,it’s time to count something bigger. When you get a level where you become too comfortable with it,it means you’ve outgrown it.

Don’t allow things to become normal in your life, it’s time to move forward, it’s time to open branches of that shop, that business should go online next year. Go Northward. Go upward and forward. It starts with you.

Do you believe that God wants you to make progress and become prosperous; 1Timothy 4:15. Give yourself completely to the word of God. The progress that no one can see is no progress.

In your finances, ministry, jobs, all-round progress. Beyond the shouting my Year of …..What are you doing? Progress is moving in line with a designed direction or goal. Activities,motion but no progress.

Progress is moving in line with a set desire or a set goals. Take steps in the line that you want to get to. Some of you, with your kind of friends,you can’t go far in life. You can’t be bigger than the circle of friends you have. Who are your friends? Your friends are those that cheer you up to believe in your dreams. To become a better person,you don’t need some people around you. If you live a general life, you’ll end up like the general people even though you’ve been called to live like a king. Your friends,you choose your friends. Spend time kneeling down and praying about your life instead of gisting. You must change your circle of friends, Who’s speaking negatively into your life? You can’t blame anyone but yourself.

What are your goals for 2019? If there are no goals,there is no forward. God is progress minded,making progress and expanding are two different things. You need to unlearn somethings and learn some new things, kill your pride and learn. The older you get, the fewer the opportunities. Create your own opportunities. You must go and learn something to be relevant.

Money comes when you are good at what you are doing. being a fine girl is not a talent. Once, you beg for recharge cards,you are not serious,are you a beggar? Don’t see begging as an option,because begging puts you at the mercy of men and men are wicked. With man,there’s no mercy but God. Learn a trade irrespective of your age.

2019 isn’t a magical year,you must do something. Invest in yourself. What are you putting in yourself that people will give you money for? For example, A #1000 note, if I squeeze it and jump on it, it still has its value, it doesn’t change from #1000, Whether men step on you, squeeze you, you still have value. Opportunities are there. The road Maybe rough but you’ll get there. Take responsibility for your life.

What are the goals that will drive you in the direction of your goal? Ezekiel 37:4-6. The bones represent the issues of your life that are not in line with God’s will. Prophesy to the dried bones. You are the prophet of your life. Speak what you want to see in 2019.Prophesy!!!

Sermon Notes from 30th December Sunday Service Message with Rev Dr Chris Oyakhilome D.Sc D.D

Dear UBPer,

As I pondered and researched what to share with you as this year 2018 wraps up, I came across this note and thought you all needed to read this, don’t go the same cycle again, redefine your goals and rechannel your energy. I look forward to reading from you

I wish you a superlative 2019 ahead!!

What are you going to do differently ?

Those at the helms of affairs in your nation are citizens like you, so what are you going to do differently?

Hello,

I know it’s been a while and you’re probably wondering what’s happening at the UpbeatPassage@wordpress.com, well, I have been putting together a gallery of some of my thoughts on various topics.

So how have you been? I trust you are gearing up for Christmas as the year winds up into 2019 which is upon us already, make sure you have a complete season of joy, laughter and peace as you do, if you live in Nigeria bear in mind that the 2019 election campaigns kicked off fully from the 18th November and some of the decisions you will take will have a ripple effect on the nation, economy, social infrastructures, education and many other aspects of governance and on you particularly as an individual.

Hence, I advice that you deliberately make up your mind to choose wisely using very detailed and informed indicators.

Let me share a story with you about my experience this morning as I proceeded on my daily commute;

A certain middle aged looking man tried to make fun by gesting about the inscription on my Tee-shirt which says “Nigeria will be built by Nigerians” after reading it out loud with a disturbing grin on his face “My Sister do you really believe that?” He said, I responded in the affirmative, then he went further to say what happens when as Nigerians are trying to make the change those at the top just keeps scattering everything ” then I asked ; Please sir, these people you’re talking about at the top are they Americans? The wide grin reduced and he said erh! Well they are not, but they are not really ermmmm…… by this time the driver who had lost a couple of his upper teeth had a good wide laugh as he agreed with my thought, then the man said again that you know they’re the ones at the top so we can’t do much, then I disagreed with him and said; Please sir, whatever those people had to do to get to the top was available to you and me talking about the human will power, determination, decisions, drive and opportunities,but they were able to rise above their obstacles to actualize their dreams and desire to rule others, then he asked me what about you? Then I replied saying I am on my way to cause a change and that kind of mindset he posesses will only make matters worse because “evil prevails when good people do nothing” and the driver laughed much more while the man feigned taking a phone call, it was pretty amazing how people just say things knowing that it’s just for the sake of conversation lacking purpose.

My question to you today as the title suggests is that what are you going to do differently? you have this one life, this one opportunity to make remarkable impact in your generation, what will it be?

Most of those you look up to probably don’t know as much as you do, neither care as much, nor do they possess some of your values and qualities but they have something that those in the general class of individuals also possess but never harness, It’s called STRONG DESIRE

Do you know why you are here on the face of the earth at this time? you have to find out, this is so that no matter the circumstances, your purpose will help you stay on course.

You know I love you always,

Adeola,

UBP

Happy Independence day Nigeria!!!!

There is the ‘do-it-yourself’ attitude that we must have. Each one of us must be willing to educate himself, only that way can we be involved in nation building. No one else will build Nigeria for us; Nigeria will be built by Nigerians.

Dearest People,

We join millions of Nigerians both home and in diaspora to celebrate our beautiful nation’s independence day, a land that has been through various ills known to plague a people such as;discrimination, cheap propaganda, slavery, civil wars, political instability, corruption e.t.c yet we are standing strong and we have renewed hope for the future.

This reminds me of a paragraph of poetry by a dear friend of mine;

No coward soul has ever been ours
Not in us to run
We dig our heels in and we face the fight.
Like our forebears gone before
Roll, we may with attacks launched
Floating like a butterfly
But stinging like a bee

(Culled from Not in Us To Run)

It’s very easy to criticise, but then everyone knows that critics don’t rule because they never win,they keep stirring contentions and uproars which leads to others loosing lives yet they(critics) never get hurt, On the other hand, activists are ready to lay down their lives for their causes, they inspire and stir constructive revolutions and gets the work done.

In our strive and hope for the future, let us bear in our minds and remind ourselves of the profound thoughts of the most amazing personality I ever met while he addressed youths in a convention as we prepared for elections .

“No one else will build Nigeria for us, for Nigeria will be built by Nigerians ” Pastor Chris

The bible admonished us to honour those who rule over us,

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 4 for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.5 Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. 7 Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.

Rom 13:1-7 ( The Bible ESV )

Always take out time to pray for our country and the leaders not talk them down, it’s obedience to God and it definitely pleases Him.

TIMOTHY 2:1–2 (The Living Bible)

1 Here are my directions. Pray much for others. Plead for God’s mercy upon them. Give thanks for all He is going to do for them. Praying this way for kings, and all others who are in authority over us, or in places of high responsibility, so that we can live in peace and quietness spending our time in godly living and thinking much about the Lord.

2 This is good and pleases God our Savior. For He longs for all to be saved and to understand this truth.

WeekEnds or WerkEnds (Redefining Weekend Goals)

There’s a notion to simply waste your weekends or get you wasted over the weekend,its time to redefine weekend goals.

Hello there,

I trust that this has been a productive week for you and that you are gearing up for the “WerkEnd” (not a typo) meaning (when the work you do for yourself or someone ends)

The mind is a tool given to us by God to engineer our lives here on earth, and we are commanded to renew the thoughts, imaginations, opinions, and exchange of ideas that our mind continually processes, and continuously adopt a better and higher way of thinking as much as is its your power to do so.

Romans 12:2

We’ve been sold the idea that weekends or Werk-Ends are a time to get away, hang out with friends, club, party and basically get wasted in the name of having fun, but I do not particularly agree, basically because the world’s idea of how to unwind translates into stylishly stealing from you; your hard earned money, your precious time and ultimately rob you of life’s beautiful moments in a way you almost would never notice.

Have you ever wondered why those Party places, NightClubs, Cinemas, lounges, Restaurants, hotels etc. give out special discounts on products and services over the weekend? It’s simply so that you can have a reason to spend more by carefully rendering to you services that seemingly take your mind off the “troubles, Stress or pressures” for a moment, while they make all the money. Then the vicious cycle returns as you go back to work on Monday again to face the same troubles, pressures and/or squabbles and in most cases return or meet up with a friend next WerkEnd,and in the course of trying to talk to him/her you promote more sales for the lounge spot as you end up spending much more because the trouble you don’t resolve will linger till it’s addressed.

Thus, the point of this (werkend) post is not to ask you to cut off unwinding at weekends but to help you redefine your (weekend) activities towards achieving a happier, stress-free life, and hopefully help you completely cut off making the same mistakes repeatedly and wishfully hoping that someday, something will change.

Model : Khenny

Below is a suggestion of what you could adopt as a productive weekend exercise;

Have quality Sleep Time: What the mind cannot handle, it transfers to the body which translates into Stress. Quality sleep can help you relieve stress as your body undergoes cell tissue repair during sleep. This goes a long way in getting you into better shape for a more productive week ahead.

It’s no use to go clubbing and dancing when you mind and body is overworked already knowing.

2. Spend quality time in Fellowship with God: This is literally the most rejuvenating experience for your spirit and soul (mind). Fellowship with God completely refreshes you because God made you and He is omniscient (all knowing) and He more than any friend in this world wants to help you get out of whatever challenging situation that maybe confronting you. Hanging out with friends may provide you with momentary relief. It however will not take the problem away but God can if you will only let him let Him help you!

3. Do Good Deeds Deliberately: Have you ever wondered why people who give to others are always happy and always have to give?, it’s a life hack that everyone must tap into.

A liberal soul shall be made fat…

“Proverbs 11:25” (The Bible)

4. Bond with Family: Spend quality bonding moments with family members, and if you are a parent or guardian prioritize time with your children or ward this weekend. This will bring you into new discoveries of their un-harnessed potentials and unlock in you hope for their future. It will improve the quality of your communication with a rippling effect in every facet of life.

5. Spend Your Free Time With Those You Aspire To: The moguls you see who meet at golf clubs, lounges, soccer games etc. don’t just go there to unwind alone, it’s a deliberate plot to see new business opportunities, close business deals, get investment feedbacks and meet great minds who are loaded with dreams for the future.

Those who lead, don’t just play, they play major roles.

6. Get Relevant Knowledge: Ignorance has never been acceptable and it never will, so go after the right kind of information. Don’t merely feed your mind on junks for momentary distraction from pressure; get informative resources on how to fix those challenges before you. You’ll soon discover that when you get back to work, you’ll be better equipped to deal wisely with the affairs of life. You’ll work not just harder but smarter and then you’ll truly be happy.

7. Work Out: As much as you can accommodate it, make exercise a daily part of your regimen. It’ll boost happy chemicals, self-confidence, alleviate anxiety and also boost your brain power. In the long run, you’ll be better relaxed, more creative and become that super productive staff who gets much more done anytime and every time.

A Grand Gesture

Let this thought guide you, the next time you want to make a big grand gesture

Hello,

Have you ever wondered why you tried to make a fine gesture towards or for a loved one and it seemed like it was unappreciated or you thought it wasn’t good enough? Guess what; a sweet young boy from a fictional series actually felt that way and asked his extraordinary wise and sweet Dad a question about it, his dad because of who he is and the character of his personality answered spontaneously with what I have beautifully quoted below for your view;

Perhaps, you’ll thank me later for paying so much attention to the lines of a movie.

I’m sure that at one point or the other you’ve picked up an idea or two you from a movie as well.

Please let this thought guide you on your next attempt at a grand gesture especially when you need the person to feel exactly how you want them to feel even if it was meant for a baby.

I love you always,

Adeola

Easy Steps to developing a more productive working lifestyle No matter what you do

Productivity, a must for every individual, co-operation and industry,learn more from this culled article from Inc Magazine,i’ve added image quotes to serve as imprints and easy remiders in your lovely minds

Hello,

It’s been a while, and what I have been up is what I’m about to share with you;

I have been researching on the topic Productivity and how it affects our minds as individuals, I also know that everyone wants to be more efficient in their all their deliverables, Please join me on this voyage to Productivity with these 15 easy steps by John Rampton so we all can develop a more productive lifestyle!!!

Kindly dig in and relish every line, I think it’s an amazing contribution to humanity, the workplace and the world of journalism;

1. Track and limit how much time you’re spending on tasks.

You may think you’re pretty good at gauging how much time you’re spending on various tasks. However, some research suggests only around 17 percent of people are able to accurately estimate the passage of time. A tool like Rescue Time can help by letting you know exactly how much time you spend on daily tasks, including social media, email, word processing, and apps.

2. Take regular breaks.

It sounds counterintuitive, but taking scheduled breaks can actually help improve concentration. Some research has shown that taking short breaks during long tasks helps you to maintain a constant level of performance; while working at a task without breaks leads to a steady decline in performance.

3. Set self-imposed deadlines.

While we usually think of a stress as a bad thing, a manageable level of self-imposed stress can actually be helpful in terms of giving us focus and helping us meet our goals. For open-ended tasks or projects, try giving yourself a deadline, and then stick to it. You may be surprised to discover just how focused and productive you can be when you’re watching the clock.

4. Follow the “two-minute rule.”

Entrepreneur Steve Olenski recommends implementing the “two-minute rule” to make the most of the small windows of time that you have at work. The idea is this: If you see a task or action that you know can be done in two minutes or less, do it immediately. According to Olenski, completing the task right away actually takes less time than having to get back to it later. Implementing this has made him one of the most influential content strategists online.

5. Just say no to meetings.

Meetings are one of the biggest time-sucks around, yet somehow we continue to unquestioningly book them, attend them and, inevitably, complain about them. According to Atlassian, the average office worker spends over 31 hours each month in unproductive meetings. Before booking your next meeting, ask yourself whether you can accomplish the same goals or tasks via email, phone, or Web-based meeting (which may be slightly more productive).

6. Hold standing meetings.

If you absolutely must have a meeting, there’s some evidence that standing meetings (they’re just what they sound like–everyone stands) can result in increased group arousal, decreased territoriality, and improved group performance. For those times when meetings are unavoidable, you may want to check out these 12 unusual ways to spur creativity during meetings.

7. Quit multitasking.

While we tend to think of the ability to multitask as an important skill for increasing efficiency, the opposite may, in fact, be true. Psychologists have found attempting to do several tasks at once can result in lost time and productivity. Instead, make a habit of committing to a single task before moving on to your next project.

8. Take advantage of your commute.

This goes for any unexpected “bonus” time you may find on your hands suggests author Miranda Marquit. Instead of Candy-Crushing or Facebooking, use that time to pound out some emails, create your daily to-do list, or do some brainstorming.

9. Give up on the illusion of perfection.

It’s common for entrepreneurs to get hung up on attempting to perfect a task–the reality is nothing is ever perfect. Rather than wasting time chasing after this illusion, bang out your task to the best of your ability and move on. It’s better to complete the task and move it off your plate; if need be, you can always come back and adjust or improve it later.

10. Take exercise breaks.

Using work time to exercise may actually help improve productivity, according to a study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. If possible, build in set times during the week for taking a walk or going to the gym. Getting your blood pumping could be just what’s needed to clear your head and get your focus back.

11. Be proactive, not reactive.

Allowing incoming phone calls and emails to dictate how you spend your day will mean you do a great job of putting out fires–but that may be all you get accomplished. My friend and business partner Peter Daisyme from free hosting company Host says, “Set aside time for responding to emails, but don’t let them determine what your day is going to look like. Have a plan of attack at the start of each day, and then do your best to stick to it.”

12. Turn off notifications.

No one can be expected to resist the allure of an email, voicemail, or text notification. During work hours, turn off your notifications, and instead, build in time to check email and messages. This is all part of being proactive rather than reactive (see number 11).

13. Work in 90-minute intervals.

Researchers at Florida State University have found elite performers (athletes, chess players, musicians, etc.) who work in intervals of no more than 90 minutes are more productive than those who work 90 minutes-plus. They also found that top-performing subjects tend to work no more than 4.5 hours per day. Sounds good to me!

14. Give yourself something nice to look at.

It may sound unlikely, but some research shows outfitting an office with aesthetically pleasing elements–like plants–can increase productivity by up to 15 percent. Jazz up your office space with pictures, candles, flowers, or anything else that puts a smile on your face. For other ideas for increasing your happiness quotient at work, see my post 15 Proven Tips to Be Happy at Work.

15. Minimize interruptions (to the best of your ability).

Having a colleague pop her head into your office to chat may seem innocuous, but even brief interruptions appear to produce a change in work pattern and a corresponding drop in productivity. Minimizing interruptions may mean setting office hours, keeping your door closed, or working from home for time-sensitive projects.

If you feel the need to increase your productivity at work, resist the temptation put in longer hours or pack more into your already-full calendar. Instead, take a step back, and think about ways you can work smarter, not harder.

Hope this was helpful, kindly drop links or comments below to share with us your thoughts in the subject.

I love you always,

Hello,

I would like for you to note this, no matter what the first two days of this precious week has been like, just wake and smell the coffee, perhaps you prefer a cup of tea, whichever your beverage choice is, start today on a most positive note.

They say life is in phases that’s so cliché, don’t let life happen to you, happen to life!!

Build up your faith(the substance of things hoped for,the evidence of unseen realities)

Perhaps, you went for an interview or business appointment that didn’t go well, choose to be hopeful and prepare harder for your next opportunity ,(it could be your best offer yet)

Don’t you cower! Square up! Chin Up! and Chest out, take bold steps like a prince/princess that you are (I mean God your father is a king, what does that make you his Child?)

Be thankful in every given circumstance you find yourself, by doing this you open yourself for God to show you what went wrong and he’ll guide you on how to get it right.

Have you ever studied of a man named Job in the Bible, I especially love the part where God spoke to him saying;

Since you know everything, where does the moon reside? “…… ” The book of Job”

A beautiful songwritter once sang;
Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?
Who told the ocean you can only come this far?
Who showed the moon where to hide ’till evening?
Whose words alone can catch a falling star?

Let faith rise within you as a giant as you step out today

I look forward to reading how your Wednesday went.

I love you always,🤗🤗

A GOOD READ ON EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Images; Google , Tumblr

Hello,

So as I studied online today, I came across this article by an online Magazine called Inc, you can sign up with them for more, Do take your time to ponder on how you can make a difference using this information. I know loads of people who struggle daily with emotional stress issues and we all are working on doing better, so this for you;

In 1995, psychologist and science journalist Daniel Goleman published a book introducing most of the world to the nascent concept of emotional intelligence. The idea–that an ability to understand and manage emotions greatly increases our chances of success–quickly took off, and it went on to greatly influence the way people think about emotions and human behavior.

But what does emotional intelligence look like, as manifested in everyday life?
For the past two years, I’ve explored that question in researching my forthcoming book, EQ, Applied. In doing so, I’ve identified a number of actions that illustrate how emotional intelligence appears in the real world.
Here are 13 of them:

1. You think about feelings.

Emotional intelligence begins with what is called self- and social)) awareness, the ability to recognize emotions (and their impact) in both yourself and others.
That awareness begins with reflection. You ask questions like:
  • What are my emotional strengths? What are my weaknesses?
  • How does my current mood affect my thoughts and decision making?
  • What’s going on under the surface that influences what others say or do?
Pondering questions like these yield valuable insights that can be used to your advantage.

2. You pause.

The pause is as simple as taking a moment to stop and think before you speak or act. (Easy in theory, difficult in practice.) This can help save you from embarrassing moments or from making commitments too quickly.
In other words, pausing helps you refrain from making a permanent decision based on a temporary emotion.

3. You strive to control your thoughts.

You don’t have much control over the emotion you experience in a given moment. But you can control your reaction to those emotions–by focusing on your thoughts. (As it’s been said: You can’t prevent a bird from landing on your head, but you can keep it from building a nest.)
By striving to control your thoughts, you resist becoming a slave to your emotions, allowing yourself to live in a way that’s in harmony with your goals and values.

4. You benefit from criticism.

Nobody enjoys negative feedback. But you know that criticism is a chance to learn, even if it’s not delivered in the best way. And even when it’s unfounded, it gives you a window into how others think.
When you receive negative feedback, you keep your emotions in check and ask yourself: How can this make me better?

5. You show authenticity.

Authenticity doesn’t mean sharing everything about yourself, to everyone, all of the time. It does mean saying what you mean, meaning what you say, and sticking to your values and principles above all else.
You know not everyone will appreciate your sharing your thoughts and feelings. But the ones who matter will.

6. You demonstrate empathy.

The ability to show empathy, which includes understanding others’ thoughts and feelings, helps you connect with others. Instead of judging or labeling others, you work hard to see things through their eyes.
Empathy doesn’t necessarily mean agreeing with another person’s point of view. Rather, it’s about striving to understand–which allows you to build deeper, more connected relationships.

7. You praise others.

All humans crave acknowledgement and appreciation. When you commend others, you satisfy that craving and build trust in the process.
This all begins when you focus on the good in others. Then, by sharing specifically what you appreciate, you inspire them to be the best version of themselves.

8. You give helpful feedback.

Negative feedback has great potential to hurt the feelings of others. Realizing this, you reframe criticism as constructive feedback, so the recipient sees it as helpful instead of harmful.

9. You apologize.

It takes strength and courage to be able to say you’re sorry. But doing so demonstrates humility, a quality that will naturally draw others to you.
Emotional intelligence helps you realize that apologizing doesn’t always mean you’re wrong. It does mean valuing your relationship more than your ego.

10. You forgive and forget.

Hanging on to resentment is like leaving a knife inside a wound. While the offending party moves on with their life, you never give yourself the chance to heal.
When you forgive and forget, you prevent others from holding your emotions hostage–allowing you to move forward.

11. You keep your commitments.

It’s common nowadays for people to break an agreement or commitment when they feel like it. Of course, bailing on an evening of Netflix with a friend will cause less harm than breaking a promise to your child or missing a major business deadline.
But when you make a habit of keeping your word–in things big and small–you develop a strong reputation for reliability and trustworthiness.

12. You help others.

One of the greatest ways to positively impact the emotions of others is to help them.
Most people don’t really care where you graduated from, or even about your previous accomplishments. But what about the hours you’re willing to take out of your schedule to listen or help out? Your readiness to get down in the trenches and work alongside them?
Actions like these build trust and inspire others to follow your lead when it counts.

13. You protect yourself from emotional sabotage.

You realize that emotional intelligence also has a dark side–such as when individuals attempt to manipulate others’ emotions to promote a personal agenda or for some other selfish cause.
And that’s why you continue to sharpen your own emotional intelligence–to protect yourself when they do.
Do have a most amazing weekend.
I love you always,
Adeola

Bedtime Thoughts

Mentoring Meetings With PVOT, Images; Tumblr, Canva

A lot of times people say I didn’t mean it that way 🤔 or That’s not what I meant by what I said😮😮 forgetting this huge fact of life that human beings can’t see your heart, neither can they tell your unexpressed intentions, they measure your maturity and actions by the contents of your speeches, demeanour, gestures, and gesticulations, only the heavenly Father sees your heart.

Hence, do learn to forgive and treat people better than they ever treated you, bear their impulsive reactions as much as you can. Jesus told his disciples to forgive the trespasses of their brothers Seventy times seven times

The Holy Bible Matt18:21-22

I’ll end with this thought A dear big Sister of mine once told me that “people don’t always get what they deserve (good or bad),

Also that God loves all His Children and He never takes sides with anyone have you ever thought of this??

I love you always,

Adeola

What’s with the dress???

Photos by Tumblr

Dear ladies,

Saturday is around the corner and you are probably attending wedding events, or maybe serving a dear friend as maid of honor or as a bridesmaid and wondering…….

I have good news for your royal highnesses to inform you that no matter the cut, no matter the colour, no matter the designer, if you desire to wear that dress through the aisle, a beach, the moon, a beautifully decorated garden or on a boat cruise all you need to do is determine it in your heart, pray, have faith,hope and the love that you will bring into your near future union and for the master, you will wear your dress and I need you to see into the future that you’ll be perfect in it.

Remember, no one can love exactly like you, no one can smile exactly like you, so with that unforgettable smile of yours do keep your hope and faith in the creator of the universe who makes all things beautiful in His time.

Whether you feel beautiful, gorgeous, innocent, pure or, fabulous, or less of yourself (which shouldn’t be) it’s all in your mind. Use your mind wisely.

It doesn’t matter the year this comes to pass because it will, there’ll always be a dress for you and no one else can wear your dress the way you will.

#PositiveVibesOnly

I hope this brings you to hope for one of the most important days of your beautiful life.

Much love always,

Adeola

Who are you not to be?

Some time ago, I watched a movie; “Akeelah and the Bee”, and in one of the scenes where “Dr. Larabee” coached her, he made her read a quote on his wall by the renowned Marianne Williamson and I remember researching online about the quote and also memorized it as it made great deposits into the person I became afterwards, it pleases me deeply to share this with you..
