RHAPSODY OF REALITIES
FRIDAY 24TH JUNE, 2016
PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME

THEME: MAKE YOUR SALVATION EFFECTIVE

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12).

A lady was diagnosed with breast cancer, and asked that I pray for her. But I told her she could “work out her salvation” by using her mouth to cut out the cancerous growth. I explained to her what the mouth is: “the front or edge of a weapon”; the Greek word is “stoma.” She was excited, and immediately got to work. She spoke consistently to the growth, in faith, over a period.

When I saw her six months later, she was completely healed; the cancer had dematerialized and she was perfectly normal. She worked out her salvation. If you’re sick, broken or afflicted in your body, and you desire to be well, put your faith to work. Work the Word. The Word of God is for doing; you work it out. As long as it remains in the pages of the Bible, it won’t produce results for you. But when through meditation, you utter the Word, it becomes the sword of the Spirit that discomfits the adversary.

The blessings are already packaged and delivered to you; the Bible says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3). God already did everything He needed to do for you to have and enjoy a glorious life. However, you have a responsibility to “work out” your own salvation in Christ.

You’re the one to ensure that all the wonderful blessings of God manifest in your life. Don’t sit and expect that whatever will be, will be; you’re the one to make your salvation work. Christ already saved you, but it’s your responsibility now to make the Kingdom work in your life. Work out your healing, prosperity, victory, promotion etc. Refuse to allow sickness lord it over you. In spite of inflation and economic meltdown, declare your prosperity without wavering.

CONFESSION
Dear Father, thank you for the salvation you’ve given me in Christ. I reign and rule by the Word of God, and power of the Holy Spirit, over sickness, disease, and circumstances. Without fear or reproach, but with full assurance in the Word, I launch out today in faith, establishing the blessings and goodness of the Kingdom in my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Further Study:
2 Timothy 1:6
Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.

2 Peter 1:10
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

Colossians 4:17
And say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it.

RENEW YOUR THINKING .
TUESDAY, MARCH 15TH .
PASTOR CHRIS

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2).
After you’ve given your life to Christ, you’ve got a responsibility. The Bible tells us not to be like the rest of the world. Don’t conform to the world’s standards and ways of doing things. Be different. Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. That means, change your way of thinking; have a new mindset. If you want to see increased manifestation of the glory of God in your life, you must keep renewing your mind with the Word.
Before you became a Christian, you heard, and spoke words from the world; words that you learnt from your friends, from school, your environment, the members of your family, etc. Sometimes they were bitter words, angry words, and harsh words. Some other times, they were nice words. However, God gives us words that are more than “nice”; words of the Kingdom, with which to transform our lives from glory to glory.
As you study and yield yourself to the ministry of the Word, your spirit is inundated with divine truths; your mind is elevated to think Kingdom thoughts. This is why learning and meditating on the Word is so important. God’s Word gives you a new way of thinking. Whereas you used to think failure, fear, lack, and want, the Word gives you the mindset of success, excellence, victory, dominion, and abundance.
Now that you’re in Christ, refuse to be conformed to this world; rather, be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Renew your thinking with the Word. By hearing the Word of God, and digesting it into you, you develop new thoughts.
One of the major reasons many are defeated in life is their thinking. When they don’t think right, they can’t act right, and their minds are held in bondage. Nevertheless, with the transforming power of God’s Word, the limits are broken. So, set your mind on the Word and let it transform your life.

PRAYER
As I meditate on the Word today, I’m transformed, transfigured, and catapulted into the image that I see in the Word! The glory of God in my spirit, and upon me, increases, influencing my attitude, character, mindset and faith. My life is improved and upgraded by the power of God’s Word today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Further Study:
|| Ephesians 4:22-24 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

|| Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

|| Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

FLASH POINT || 7 EVENTS THAT WILL SHAKE THE WORLD HARD SOON

http://www.influencewithaquinas.wordpress.com/thefuturenow:
Dear IWAB Readers,
Welcome to The Future Now on influence, I am Paul Hillary. From the City of Liberty statue here in USA, I bring you insight into what is happening to the world now as the bible prophecy foretold. Whilst the world continue to purse mirage in guise of solution to security and economic problem, what is paramount is that there is no time left anymore! In this timely and riveting episode of TFN, join me as I share with you the future of the world that is already a present our reality according to ED HINDSON

SEVEN FUTURE EVENTS THAT WILL SHAKE THE WORLD;
ED HINDSON TELLS

image

In many ways, the current catastrophe is but a microcosm of the real End Time disasters that are predicted in Scripture. Jesus did, in fact, warn that the days before His Second Coming would be “as the days of Noah” when the “flood came, and took them all away” (Matthew 24:37-39). Every act of God’s judgment is an act of mercy, warning us of even greater judgment to come.

The Bible predicts at least seven future events that are destined to shake the world in the “last days.”

1. Millions Missing

One of the most incredible prophecies of the Bible is the prediction of the Rapture of the Church ( I Thess. 4:13-17). In this passage, the Apostle Paul predicts that one day the “dead in Christ” will be resurrected and “we which are alive” will be raptured (Greek, harpazo) into the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. This reunion of believers is called the “blessed hope” of the Church (Titus 2:13).

The Rapture is a totally different event from the return of Christ to judge the world and set up His kingdom on earth. At the Rapture, millions of born-again believers will be “caught up” into the air to meet the Lord who is coming to claim His Bride and take her home to the Father’s house in heaven (John 14:1-4). In the Return, the Bride comes back from heaven with Christ at Armageddon to defeat the Antichrist and initiate the kingdom of Christ on earth for 1,000 years (Rev. 19-20).

2. USA Out/New Power In

One thing we must always bear in mind is that the Rapture changes everything! If millions of believers were suddenly snatched away to glory, the United States, especially, would be thrown into economic, social, political and spiritual chaos. Assuming that a significant percentage of Americans are true believers, their sudden absence would leave the USA a second-rate power, literally overnight. What happened with Katrina would pale into a distant memory in light of a much greater national crisis.

Biblical prophecies indicate that the major player in the end times scenario will be Europe (cf. Daniel 9). The emergence of the European Union has galvanized more than 350 million people into a political and economic powerhouse that is destined to fill the global power vacuum after the Rapture. This will inevitably lead to a shift in international policies toward Israel in the last days.

3. World Peace Promised

The Bible predicts the rise of a global dictator who will promise to bring peace to the world during the troubling days after the Rapture. II Thess. 2:1-12 indicates that the wicked one cannot come on the scene until after the removal of the Restrainer. A careful reading of this passage indicates that the Antichrist will rise to power after the Rapture of the Church.

The Book of Revelation calls this world ruler the “Beast” (Rev.13:1-10). It describes him controlling a global economy, a world government and a world religion in which he claims to be divine and insists that he be worshipped as God. It also portrays a “false prophet” who assists the Beast in his global deception and world rule (Rev. 13:11-18). However, in the end, the Antichrist’s promise of peace will culminate in plunging the world into the most terrible wars the planet has ever known.

4. Two Dead Men Walking

Revelation 11:3-12 predicts the appearance of “two witnesses” who will proclaim the message of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem in the days following the Rapture. Their clear message will be accompanied by miraculous signs that indicate their functions will be like that of Moses (plagues) and Elijah (fire from heaven). These are also the two witnesses that appeared with Jesus on the mount of transfiguration (Matt. 17:1-3).

The Antichrist will suddenly turn against these two men, kill them and leave their dead bodies in the streets of Jerusalem for public display. But after three and a half days, they will be miraculously resurrected and raptured into heaven (Rev. 11:11-12). This dramatic event will be witnessed by the whole world, presumably on satellite television. It will serve as a final warning to those who have rejected the Gospel and been left behind during the Great Tribulation.

5. Jewish Temple Rebuilt

The first Temple in Jerusalem was built by King Solomon. It was destroyed in 586 B.C. by the Babylonians. The second Temple was built by Zerubbabel in 515 B.C. It was later remodeled by King Herod and destroyed by the Romans in A.D. 70. Today, there is no Jewish temple on the sacred Temple Mount. Instead, the Moslem shrine, the Dome of the Rock, has sat on the Temple Mount for more than 1,300 years, since A.D. 691.

Nevertheless, the Bible predicts that the Antichrist (“man of sin”) will enter the Jewish temple in the last days and insist that he be worshipped as God (II Thess. 2:3-4). This prophecy presupposes the existence of another Jewish temple in the future. Since the Dome of the Rock now sits on the previous site of the Temple, this would seem to predict the eventual destruction of the Dome of the Rock and the rebuilding of the Jewish temple in its place, perhaps under the auspices and protection of the Antichrist himself.

6. Holocaust Eclipsed

One of the most serious biblical prophecies points to the invasion of Jerusalem in the biblical last days. While Israel is dwelling securely, she will suddenly be invaded by hordes of old Gentile nations. Both the Old Testament (Ezekiel 38-39; Joel 2:1-11; Zechariah 14:1-3) and the New Testament (Matt. 24:15-28; Rev. 16:1-21) predict an assault on Jerusalem in the end times.

The prophet Daniel predicts the coming world ruler will break his treaty agreement with Israel, desecrate the Temple and attack the city of Jerusalem (Daniel 9:26-27). John the Revelator pictures Jerusalem falling (Rev.11:13) and the remnant fleeing into the wilderness (Rev.12:13-17). Jesus warned that unless those days were shortened, no one would survive (Matt. 24:21-22). But unlike the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, this time God will intervene to deliver His people.

7. God Comes to Earth

The great climax of biblical prophecy is the Triumphal Return of Jesus Christ described in Rev. 19:11-16. He returns from heaven to earth to win the Battle of Armageddon (Rev. 16:16), defeat the Beast and the False Prophet and cast Satan into the abyss for 1,000 years (Rev. 19:19-20:3). Only His return will bring peace to the planet and an end to human hostilities. In the Person of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, God comes to earth to reign and rule in peace and righteousness. This will be an unprecedented time of blessing and prosperity only to be exceeded by eternity itself when all the saints of God dwell together in the New Jerusalem (Rev. 21-22).

The final prophecies of the Revelation end with an invitation. Jesus speaks one last time, urging us to “testify … these things in the churches” (Rev. 22:16). Then the Revelation adds: “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is athirst, come. And whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely” (Rev.22:17). Prophecy is not written to frighten us, but to invite us to come to Christ while there is still time. You and I have an invitation to dine with the King. But we must decide to accept His invitation before it’s too late (Rev. 3:20).

HOPE TODAY || HEALING FOR THE BRUISED, BROKEN & HURTING

http://www.influencewithaquinas.wordpress.com/hopetoday/healing:
Dear IWAB Readers,
Welcome to Hope Today, an inspiring program that comes your way every now, bringing you thoughts of faith, hope and love that you need right in that situation to activate God’s healing for you!

Today our focus is on those who are ailing not with Cancer or tumour but rather with bruised, broken and hurting emotions which are more deadly that the deadliest diseases. But by the power of God’s word and in the name of Jesus, as you follow me in this power packed series, you will have a testimony. Just follow and read.

HEALING FOR THE BRUISED, BROKEN AND HURTING
Have you been or are you going through difficult situations which seem to have no end or hope for solutions? Did you just get promoted or ventured into a new business, or had a new baby/pregnancy or even just got married, and oh’ amazingly you were in church and everywhere telling the world about the goodness of the Lord for all he has done, now suddenly is as though all hell let loosed, and you are just about concluding what was once a blessing is actually a curse in disguise? Could it be that you are blessed and cursed?…you asked. But the Bible says: that we are called to walk and inherit a blessing, and…cursed is he that hangeth on the tree, so that the blessings of Abraham might come upon the gentiles. So is this a sort of paradox, you wondered again?

Listen again: Has your spouse filed for divorce and there is nothing that can be done about it. Did you just watch your loved ones, marriage, family, best friends, business, ministry and much more slip through your hands and crumble in the hands of failure, disaster and death right before your very eyes, with you so helpless and unable to stop the siege. Now everybody has labelled you a ‘child of circumstance, a cursed seed of Abraham and a misfortune of Zion’,…what is happening to me after all my fat tithes and offerings and huge partnerships to sponsor the gospel around the world, you asked!

Did you just hear a great sermon in church by your pastor and your faith was greatly challenged by the anointing and suddenly you emptied your account, and sold all you have in life just to see that the gospel is not stranded and the next day you lost your job, business or even marriage? Could God give you a responsibility and not defend you? Could God bring you to promotion only to embarrass you?

What do you do when a blessing is looking like a curse in packets of testimony? Where do you run to when there is red sea and the enemy is just right close behind you? How do you survive when you just stepped into divine health but suddenly sickness is knocking again? Could God be true and unreal?

My dear friend, questions only have ‘why’ which leaves anyone more confused and hopeless but faith offers the solution. David knew that setting his Gaze on the hill of the lord was the only place of help. Today the hill is symbolic and a typology of the ‘word’ of God. Science and medicine only provide platform for research and suggestive therapy, but only God’s word offers true solutions. If you are bothered about the sickness and failures that have explanation and a true cause, what happens when you face the ones beyond human comprehension?

The Bible says: In all of these things, you are more than a conqueror. Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. So when you find yourself in any or all of the situations highlighted above, and you have done all that the word shows us to do and it appears there are no changes as yet, don’t push the panic button or begin to look for a shortcut. All you need to do is to stay in there and mixed with faith, hold on and hold forth the word of God to find out what is God’s will concerning that situation. The anointing makes the difference. You must recognize the presence of the Holy Ghost, practise his presence, speak in tongues, speak the word, fast, pray and exercise the power in the name of Jesus.

Finally, begin to say what God has said concerning you and use those truths and facts to make wars. This is why you must study the word to know and find out what his word says about you.

With these steps, your healing is sure. Remember, Jesus is done everything for you. Put all of those pains on him and know that it is all working together for your good, you are not alone no matter how bad it is, it can only get better.

I pray for you today, no matter how much you are hurting, broken and bruised, I command healing to come to you right now in the name of Jesus. “I see a young lady who was raped so badly and you are filled with shame and pains because you just can’t tell anybody about it because of who was involved. Now you are contemplating suicide just to end it. Your name is Martha. God is saying don’t take your life because I am in control. I am working out better plans for you. Forgive yourself and the person. Now healing for your soul, body and emotions cones to you now in Jesus name”.

And everyone of you reading this with painful questions in your hearts, receive answers, help and healing right now in Jesus name! Write us to share your testimony. God bless you, I love you!

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES
FRIDAY, 28TH AUGUST, 2015
PASTOR CHRIS

TITLE: TAUGHT BY THE ANOINTING

But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. (1 John 2:20)

As a Christian, if you’ve received the Holy Spirit, there’s an anointing upon your life; there’s an “unction” on you. That word, “unction” is the same as the anointing. 1John 2:27 says, “But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” It says the anointing teaches you. This means whatever problem you’re faced with as a child of God, be it financial or in your job, health, family—whatever it may be—the anointing can teach you what to do. If you’d listen to the Lord in your heart, you’ll hear His voice! You’ll hear Him tell you what to do, because it’s His will and desire to guide and lead you from glory to glory, on the path of triumph!

Isaiah 30:21 says, “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” No child of God should walk in darkness or confusion. You should never be at a crossroads; there’s an anointing on you. No longer should you make the wrong choices and investments in life, because you have a “Teacher” inside you, who has anointed your mind to think excellently and make quality and intelligent decisions.

Read 1 John 2:27 again. The anointing teaches you all things; not some things. In other words, by the Holy Spirit, you can know how to run your family, your job, your business, your finances, academics, and everything you need to know about life. Always be conscious that you’re not an ordinary person. you’re anointed of God: “Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God” (2 Corinthians 1:21). The anointing of the Spirit in your life makes your life supernatural!

PRAYER
Dear Lord,I thank you for the impact of your Word in my life. By the anointing, which I’ve received and which abides in me, my fruitful field is turning into a forest, and my life is glorious everyday, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

FURTHER STUDY
2 Corinthians 12:9
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Zephaniah 3:17 
The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.

Ephesians 6:10 
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

A MUST READ: WINNING IN CRISIS, A RARE ADVENTURE

http://www.influencewithaquinas.wordpress.com/devtiononinfluence:

image

Dear IWAB Readers,
Welcome to Devotion on Influence. Today, I got something beautiful to share with you. I pray that your heart is open to receive. Enjoy!

WINNING IN CRISIS
The challenges, storms, natural disasters, terrorism, economic quagmire and all the evil and wickedness happening around the world today are not rocket science. Pages of History contain relics of same concerning the bible days or the ancient era.

Are you saying there were hunger and lack in the past Aquinas? emphatic yes! You see, Ecclesiastes 1:9 says: there is nothing new under the sun. Now the earth is a planet under the sun. so the writer refers to the earth which is where we live presently. By inference, what is today and what is happening today were and happened in the bible days. But the interesting part is this; God has been before all and he has been dealing with these precarious situations. He planned for your coming and so he isn’t overwhelmed by your welfare budget. He is not going to seek the senate, congress or royal assembly approval, He got you covered anywhere you are.

You see, the bigger the storms, the greater your strength. God has designed a more sure way to victory in the midst of all these viral odds. He has made you triumphant and an overcomer always in this world (2 Corinthians 2:14 and 1 John 4:4). See what the lord has done in your life bigger than the pressing needs and adverse circumstances. It makes no difference what the global media report, we have the true report which is good news, the gospel. Therefore, through it all, you are winning in the Crisis! Glory Halleluia!

Prayer
I pray for you today; that you will find strength to go on even in the midst of the crisis, your faith will well up so strong and the Holy Spirit will guide you into victory and the help of God is with you in Jesus Name!

DID YOU SEE MY CHRISTMAS? CHAI CHAI CHAI! MY CHRISTMAS OOO!

#Mid-DayDevotion/www.influencewithaquinas.wordpress.com:

image

Dear IWAB Readers,
Welcome to mid-day devotion. Today you will learn and enjoy a refreshing moment in God. Journey with me as I share with your something striking.

DID YOU SEE MY CHRISTMAS?
….chai chai chai! my christmas ooo!
(Ref: John 3:16)

Sitting by the Love Stone at the kindred square that holds the intersections leading to the interiors of my village, I was lost in thoughts at what life has become of my dreams, goals, aspirations but not very far from the realities confronting my future, even as I wrestled fears, doubt, unbelief, terrors of hopelessness and boisterous winds of ‘uncertainty of rescue’, my feet began to dangle and my strength dwindling in shackles of “could this cup pass over me”.

Within this enclose of emotional diaphragm, nothing seemed fair, and pleasant except the only dream of what ideality is. But how could one without manicured lifestyle live in paradise I asked my helpless soul. Is it possible to go to heaven when the earth is out of course, my mental anatomy quaked at this seemingly impossible answer.

Heheheheee! Life is unfair they said, but there are beggars in the palace too as much as there are on the street. So what is the difference? Insight…my spirit responded! In the instance of such unimaginable reflection, a faint feel of excitement began to course through my dark soul and in the leak of time, it got stronger, welling up to my emotions. Suddenly, the thought of why the prevailing phase sequel to my penultimate troubles pulled me up to the memory of my experience with the compass and hope bearing nature of Stars-a true story of how wise men followed the star to meet the new born saviour in Bethlehem.

This was the moment I had waited for, to know just one thing that brings the feel and memory of joy again following a protracted conflict with fears, doubts and uncertainties. Friends you never knew what ensued next! I had just realized that: When trouble is at its’ peak, suddenly, JOY comes in the morning! When all hell let loose, SAFETY is underway! When death is in the way, LIFE had just been born and when the cloud is dark, the rain of abundance is set to empty. This is what CHRISTMAS brings.

The story (fiction) above talks about a being whose journey had come to an abrupt end and hopeless intersection. That being is MAN. He had no future, joy was a stranger, safety and life became eclipsed on the account of his romantic bliss with iniquity. In his confusion and awaiting sentence, the dawn of hope and help began to sound.

Like the roses, lilies and garden birds chant and clap in excitement and lullabies proceed from a serene neighbourhoods on the morning of Christmas, bearing precious memories of the “future and present” of a timeless help-Salvation, his soul found rest. I was in this shoe too until I met my love Jesus. Did you see my Christmas? now I can shout and sing “Chai Chai Chai My Christmas ooo!”, knowing that I am the reason for the season because he came for me.

You too can do the same by simply praying with me this way: Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God and that you died and rose again. I ask that you come into my heart now and be the lord and saviour of my life from today and forever. I declare according to Romans 10:9-11 & 2 Cor. 5:17; that I am born-again. Thank you for saving me! If you prayed that prayer any where you are around the world, congratulation and welcome to God’s family.

You will grow stronger and better in faith in Jesus name! Kindly locate any Christ Embassy Church around you and share your testimony of salvation there and you will receive  further help and guide on how you can serve God with your life now that you are born-again. Also write me via email or share your testimony in the comment box here on the blog. God bless You!

WHAT THE JEWS THOUGHT

#influencewithaquinas
What did the Jews think when they demanded for the life of Jesus? And what about the Pilate? I was thinking that the men who executed this man could have had a field day. Anyway, does it matter? Afterall  he said he is the same with God, and if truly he is, let him save himself. He had all the power in his hand beyond this world to destroy everyone who had called for his arrest and killing, yet he never did. And then I asked why? He bore the guilt, sin and shame for no cause of his, and yet he was executed. He took pain and blackmail in defence of a people who didn’t deserve life, yet he was murdered by the same.  However, what the Jews, the Pilate and the Field Men thought never mattered because you mattered the most. On that Cross, he saw your healing, your prosperity, your victory, your future, your destiny and your salvation. If anything else mattered, it could have been the lies told, the excruciating pain, the unexplainable torture and the set death. But he said: YOU are the only thing that mattered. If he did this just for you, the big question is : have you loved him? Have you accepted his timeless sacrifice? He suffered so that you wouldn’t, he was broken so that you won’t hurt again, and he died so that you will live. Are you Born-Again? If you are not, simply pray this prayer: Lord Jesus, I acknowledge and believe the sacrifice of your life for me on the Cross, Come into my heart today and be the Lord and Saviour of my Soul. I declare that I am Born Again. Thank you for saving me, in Jesus Name. Write us  to share your testimony if you just prayed that prayer. Congratulation because now you are Born Again!
