Grace refers to that divine favour that he brought to us, the bible says the law came by moses but grace and truth came by one Jesus Christ.

Whatever we do for God,except it is done through the holy spirit it is really worthless. Think about it, what in the world could you do for God, Nothing. He has got more angels than there are people, and the angels are more powerful than human beings. So if God wanted to do anything and he needed someone to do it, he could get the angels to do it, he doesnt need us to do it.

The thing is He made us in his image and in his likeness and made it possible for us to be filled with the holy spirit. Something that the angels cannot enjoy.

So What we do for God through the Holy Spirit is much more acceptable to God than what all the angels could do, because of the Holy Spirit.

Never take the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in your life lightly. It’s the most important thing in your life. Its the most important experience you could ever have. To some people it’s just an experience, but it’s more than that.

There are those who dont know the significance of this indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. Life is nothing without the Holy Spirit and if you get to know the Holy Hpirit you have it made.
Your life takes on a real meaning when you discover the fellowship of the holyspirit

Remember of the words of the apostle Paul in 2Corinthians 13:14 he says, the grace of the lord Jesus’s Christ and the love of God and the communion of the Holy Ghost be with you all. Amen

Grace refers to that divine favour that he brought to us, the bible says the law came by moses but grace and truth came by one Jesus Christ.

Favour is the lowest synonym of the word grace. Because grace is more of a gift. It is the gift of God. It is the glory of God that is given to you, that resides in your spirit and is expressed in the outside. It refers to all of the beauty of God delivered to your heart and made to be evident in your life. It is the ability of God given to you, this is what makes the fullness of God available to your spirit.

The law says you must do this, you must do that before God accepts you. How things have changed. God accepts people not for what they do but for what Christ did.

It wasnt that Chirst stopped the terror of God, not necessarily, even though it’s true, but the fact is, It was God working in Jesus that brought that grace to us. It was God the father who sent Jesus to bring us that favour.

What will your life be like if you opened up for the grace of the lord Jesus Christ to be manifested in you everyday. What life would you live if the grace of Jesus Christ were to be expressed through your life.

Remember the words of the apostle Paul, he says be strong in the grace that is in our lord Jesus take advantage of the grace that is in our lord Jesus.

This grace brought us untold abilities, this grace has made us more than conquerors, this grace has made us absolute success, never a failure and how have you taken advantage of this?

He has made us able, Paul said I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me, what a mentality.

Most times we are praying and asking for things all the time and we havnt even taken advantage of that which has been made available to us.

The bible says Elijah was just like us, he could get hungry, fears could come to him, doubts could come to him yet he prayed and got an answer, which means you can pray and get an answer James 5:17

There are people who live in bitterness, they are bitter because someone did something to them and they are unhappy, so that controls their heart. Everyday they are thinking of what that person did to them.

The love of God should be working in your heart. He wants you to experience the love of God everyday, but you cant experience the love of God in isolation, the love of God works through you. You experience the love of God by sharing the love of God.

When you recieve Gods love you pass Gods love. If you dont pass it you loose it.

That’s why the bible says dont quench love because love can be quenched. Love works like fire, if you are going to keep fire on, you have keep putting more material to burn, if you dont put more material, the fire quenches.

Then he says the communion of the Holy Ghost be with you.the word is Koinonia it means fellowship, a participation , means communication, partnership, oneness, unity, all of these and transportation.

He didnt say the fellowship of the Lord Jesus Christ or the fellowship of God he said the fellowship of the holy spirit which means the holy spirit is here for us to relate with. Because he father is in heaven, Jesus is in heaven, it’s the holy spirit that is here. So we talk with him, we have fellowship with him.

Dont ignore the holy spirit in your life, dont ignore his voice, life is frustrating outside the holy spirit.

There are many Christians who are frustrated, they are frustrated at home, at work in their finances and in many areas of their life but they are Christians. So what is the reason for their frustrations? There is one reason they are frustrated, ignoring the holy spirit, the holy spirit knows what to do about everything. But when we ignore him, we complain, we think someone else is the problem, we think this is not working because of so and so. So many times we destroy our relationship because we think that other person is the problem but they are not. No bodybelse could be a factor.

Theres one factor for your success and that is the holy spirit. if you ignore him you will miss the best in life and you will struggle through life.

A perfect heart and a willing mind
Do you know that not many people serve the lord with a perfect heart. some people serve him with a perfect heart and not a willing mind and some serve him with a willing mind and not a perfect heart. 1Chronicles 28

Nothing goes through your thoughts that God doesnt know, he understands all your imaginations.

Too many Christians ignore the holy spirit, they reject his voice, most without understanding it because they have never known his voice. We call it that still small voice, very easy to reject. Always that still calm voice of love that tries to calm you and guide you in Gods path. It is always a voice of love, he will never accept your stubbornness.

He talks to you about everyday issues, he gets involved in everything that concerns you. Sometimes he tells you the way you talked to that man was not good and you say never, this wounds Him and he withdraws The bible tells us that it is very easy to wound the holy spirit.

The father is different from the son and from the holy spirit in his ways of spirit. The father and the son protects the holyspirit because of who he is, he is the one through whom the father and the son carry out their work.

Live your life in such a way as not to offend the Holy Spirit. You may not sin against the Holy Spirit but you can wound the holy spirit. You can cause him to withdraw.

Live your life in such a way as to bring honour to the holyspirit. Honour his presence in your life and you will find your life prospering.

I want to share with you some wonderful truths embedded in a very common prayer that we all pray.

This prayer is from 2 corinthians 13:14 and it says The grace of our lord Jesus christ , the love of God and the fellowship of holy spirit be with you all Amen

This is a prayer many Christians recite all around the world, but sometimes I wonder if we take out the time to study the things we read from the bible to find out how much truth there is, how much power there is.
You know truth is power, the more truth you have the more effective you will be. The power of God is in the word of God.

In the Scripture above, He didnt say the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the communion of the HolyGhost period, he said the grace of the lord Jesus christ the love of God and the communion of the holy spirit be with you Amen. That means that It’s a prayer, it’s a blessing and you need to find out what that really means and how to connect with it.

Note that he’s not talking about everybody in the world, hes talking about God’s people. And who are Gods people? Those who are born again.

Jesus said except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. So you ve got to be born again. To be born again means to be recreated. The human spirit must be recreated in God.

He says the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. What is the grace of Lord Jesus Christ, he is blessing you with the Grace

What is grace anyway?

Grace is that outward reflection of a divine influence. When there is the divine presence somewhere and its reflecting on the outside, that light that you see, that beauty that you see,that is the grace of God.

The grace of God is the beauty of divinity, it is the power of God, it’s the kindness of God, it is manifestation of the love of God. When you see Jesus, you see the embodiment of divine grace. The sinner doesn’t feel like running away from Jesus. The alcoholic doesnt feel like running away from Jesus. His grace is attractive, his grace pulls you.

John said we saw his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the father, full of grace and truth. Complete and replete with grace. When he stepped through the streets he was the embodiment of divine grace. John 1:14

When they saw Jesus immediately they could tell him from everything else. Whatever was your pursuit in life came to a stop when you saw Jesus.

You the think that the houses and the fine cars you have around are great? Wait until you see Jesus.

Who is Jesus? Jesis is the word of God became flesh that’s where Jesus came from. Hes is the one called, in the bosom of the father, he dwells there. When God speaks, he speaks his word, his word is God.

So he says in the beginning was the word and word was with God in the bosom and the word was God.
That word he says became flesh when he said let there be it became. So when Jesus came he spoke words he said to blind eyes open up, they opened, he said to the lame rise up, they walked, he spoke to the dead and they responded. The spoken word became the living word.

And of his fullness have we recieved grace for grace. In other words an abundance of grace. We have received of his fullness grace upon grace, divine favour.

The bible says the law came from moses but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

The bible also says to grow in grace. Your righteousness remains the same but you grow in grace and you grow in the knowledge of our lord Jesus Christ. That’s talking about an acquaintance getting to know who he is, in a daily relationship with him and that changes your life.

If you are not in Christ you will not be able to take advantage of this Grace.

THE CARES OF THIS LIFE By PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME

THE CARES OF THIS LIFE ~ PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME

“And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares” (Luke 21:34).

The parable of the sower that Jesus told in Mark chapter 4 shows us the reason the Word of God is unfruitful in the lives of some people. These people are overwhelmed by the cares of this life: “And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares of this world… choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful” (Mark 4:18-19).

When you find a Christian who isn’t bearing fruits that are consistent with the Word of God, it’s because he or she is encumbered with the cares of this life, therefore receiving the Word amongst thorns. “Thorns” here refers to “the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things.” These things choke the Word of God in people’s lives and make it unproductive, thus resulting in many not living to their potentials in Christ.

1 John 2:15 says, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” Our opening scripture says, “…take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting.” God wants your affection and attention set on Him and His eternal Word, on things in heaven and not on things in the earth (Colossians 3:2). He wants you to guard your heart and make it a fertile ground always for His Word to not only be deep-rooted, but also to produce the desired result.

In Proverbs 23:26, He said, “My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.” He doesn’t want you chasing after the vain things of life, but rather that you meditate on the Word and let it gain the ascendancy in your life. That way, you would have a fruitful and productive life: “Blessed is the man that…his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper” (Psalm 1:1-3).

Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

TAKE AWAY THEIR BLINDNESS

(We Can’t Leave Them Alone)

👤 Pastor Chris

📖 TO THE BIBLE
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

◀️ LET’S TALK
Sometimes, when we think of some people in certain conditions, we expect they’d want a change, but it’s not always the case. Some would tell you, “Please, let me be; I don’t need the Gospel; I’m okay.” But we know they’re not okay; so, we can’t let them be. We understand their problem; it’s clear in our opening scripture: “…Whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe….” They may do everything to stop us from bringing them the message, but we aren’t going to give up.

We’ll keep praying for them and exploring every means possible to get the message to them. In Ezekiel 3:17 AMPC, the Lord said, “Son of man, I have made you a watchman to the house of Israel; therefore hear the word at My mouth and give them warning from Me.” God has made you a watchman over the sinners in your world. Therefore, let the passion for soul-winning be in your heart as a burning fire, shut up in your bones (Jeremiah 20:9). Never turn your back on those around you who are not yet saved.

The Lord is counting on you for their salvation. Some may be hostile and unreceptive to the message but don’t give up. For many of them, all that’s required is a little more push, a little more preaching and time of intercession on your part! Surely, one day, just like the rest of us, they too would be catapulted from darkness to light, and into the glorious liberty of the sons of God. Hallelujah!

🎯 Go Deeper
2 Thessalonians 3:1-2 NIV; 2 Peter 3:9; 1 Timothy 2:1-4

🔊 Pray
Gracious Father, I thank you for making me an effective minister of righteousness. I declare that satan, the prince of the power of the air is rebuked, and his influence is broken in the lives of those to whom your children, all over the world, would be preaching the Gospel today. Thank you for the testimonies of salvation recorded around the world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

The Mystery of the word of God is CHRIST.

Published

The Mystery of the word is CHRIST. By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.

As the Mystery of the Gospel is Christ.

I want us to look at Christ from another perspective.

By the way, in dealing with the crisis we currently face, we don’t rely on the support of the masses. In history, They have usually made Us the subject of their persecution.

But i want to show you how we can completely annihilate this thing, and they won’t know what hit them.
Already we are causing changes. Many are not happy with us.
In some countries, they are trying to make some illegal things mandatory.
Formal education is being thrown into the wind right now. They talk about online learning. But they don’t care about the billions who have no access to the internet.
Formal education came from the church, so they don’t know what to do with it because it was never their idea.

The ‘deep church’ name was given by a sound arch bishop from Rome, who stated their activities very clearly. They pretend in their prayers and pretend to be the same with us until they discover who they really are. They hate our truth.
That they say the same things with us doesn’t mean they are like us.
They don’t change. They have not repented. Don’t be deceived.
Now, some are pretending to be angry about the closing of churches….but it’s a lie. They love it!
If they didn’t love it..from the beginning. They would have known what to do. But they have never loved to listen to God; their own minds have always been their god.

The Holy spirit has identified who is responsible for all this mess… The Prince of Assyria.
In the latter times. (After the rapture), the Prince of Babylon will take over.

Through our prayers, we have dealt with this spirit.

Isaiah 14: 24 -27 ESV
“As I have planned, so shall it be….”
Isa 30:30-31 ESV, KJV
The Assyrian will be terror-stricken/Beaten down.. at the voice of the Lord. Hallelujah!!!!

THE MYSTERY OF THE WORD

John gave us the story of the word. There’s no better way to understand the book of John, than to understand the purpose for his writing.

John 1:1
You would have expected him to say the word IS God…instead of WAS (Past tense). It should raise questions in your mind.
The word WAS with God; the word WAS God… So what happened to him?

V2-3 The word was called a HIM, Not an IT. He gives PERSONALITY to the word.
V4: everything about him is written in past tense ‘was’.

V5: the light SHINES. whatever happened to the word, He never ceased to shine.
Darkness could not overcome it. Never has; Never will!!

V6-8: He begins to talk about someone else (John).
V9; the word is the true light. It has something to do with everybody’s life. Nobody can truly say there is no God. Even the most God-hating Atheist knows. There is a light inside them that tells them He exists.

There was the word
The word was with God.
He was present in the beginning with God.
He was God.
He made all things.
The word is life.

V10: The world was made by Him
He wasn’t talking about the ‘incarnation’ here. At this point, there’s no ‘Jesus’.

The world that the word made didn’t know Him.

There is a truth that’s being revealed about God’s word and John is helping us reveal it.
V10; this ‘world’ is the Cosmos

V11: His own, means ‘Privately owned/Separated to himself’. Its not referring to the whole world.

John is telling us a story of THE WORD. How that it was there with God from the beginning of all the things he wants to write about.

(God preexisted the creation. He goes from the dateless past to the dateless future)

V12-13: He goes into a Parenthetical discussion.
They didn’t have to be there. It was a digression which was important to his story. But its not in the line of the discussion.
He weaves them in and out for the purpose of clarity but not so we get carried away by the digression.

Now read 10, 11 and Jump to 14.

V14: ‘And’ could be read as ‘So’.
‘Was made flesh’ actually should be translated ‘became flesh’.
The word came to live and tabernacle among us.
(This same word that was with God and was God)
At a certain time in History, He picked out something that he separated unto himself and said ‘this will be mine’ after he had given Adam dominion over the world, and making a covenant with Abraham, whereby he purchased a people as His.
(REF: Exodus 15:16. Psalm 74:1-2. Deut 32:6)
Israel by covenant was God’s own!!! He BOUGHT THEM BY COVENANT.
God had sent several prophets to them, but they turned them down.

The Voice of God is the Holy spirit.
The word of God is Jesus.

The voice of God came walking in the Garden
Voice without words is Sound.
Voice amplifies the words (the Logos)
John 1:1- That Logos is the thoughts, ideas and opinions of God.
The Holy Ghost amplifies and transmits the message, thoughts and ideas of God.
But the Idea is the Logos!

V11: When the prophets were talking to them, It was God talking. But they rejected them. They didn’t embrace him.

V14: The word was always in the world. Since they didn’t receive him through the prophets, he now Chose to come in Flesh and live among them.

(Imagine if the words you are listening to now, suddenly form a person in front of you)

The word of God was full of Grace and Reality.
He was kind to you, No matter what you had done. He was Graceful and Gracious.

This is the picture that John paints of this Man of Galilee.

John 6:48-49
Nobody knew anything about Manna till it came.
V50. This bread COMES from Heaven (He was talking about the Holy spirit)
V51: The word proceeds from the Father as the spirit does. Every time you hear the word of God, it is coming to you from Heaven.
E.g. You are hearing the word of God right now in your home, but it does not originate from your home.

E.g. in Moses day, when God spoke from Heaven, they would hear it from the fire, or from the Mountain.
That’s the same way he speaks from Heaven and you hear it in your heart.

(John 2:19. His body was not just a living tabernacle. It was a transformation of the word into Flesh)

John 1:14- The word did not PUT ON flesh. He BECAME flesh.
John 6:51- what Jesus is saying is …his flesh, bones and blood was THE WORD.
V52-53 Except you eat his flesh and drink his blood. You have no life in you.
54-60- Jesus said all these strong words in this synagogue. Even his disciples got concerned.
61-62; The resurrection of Jesus is the most important thing to the church, but the most EXTRAORDINARY thing that happened on this earth was what Jesus was talking about here… THE ASCENSION! It is so significant. The church is very ignorant of this.

Jesus didn’t suddenly disappear.
He levitated!
He ascended!!
This was PROOF that he came from Heaven.
This was what convinced even his siblings.
He LEVITATED BEFORE ALL HIS DISCIPLES!!!
He really ascended!!!
On and on until he went into the clouds!
Hallelujah!!!
It DAWNED ON THEM that He was truly God!! That He was who he claimed to be.

They couldn’t talk about it; because it was so extraordinary.
God was in their midst and they didn’t know.
He was washing plates with them and they didn’t know.
But he was truly God!!!!!

He ascended into Heaven and from thence he shall come to Judge the living and the dead.
(Only the Roman Catholics talk about this).

The day the revelation of the ASCENSION dawns on you, you will be transformed.

John 6:63- It is the spirit that gives life.
The words that Jesus speaks are Spirit and Life.

Eat it. Digest it.
Get voracious with the word of God.

People ask ‘why do you preach so much’? Its because that’s where the power is.
There is something about the word of God.
The Greatest thing in your life is the word of God.
You came from the word of God.
The word Created you.
