NUMBER 1 FAN

Pastor Chris has always told us that when a man encounters another man that he doesn’t understand, he tends to criticize such a person. Having read much of the filth on the internet I am more than convinced that much of what has been written has been done in bad faith.

So many people expect pastor to respond to every one of these diatribes, some even argue that his inability to respond is an indication that the critics may not be far from the truth. But why should he? I guess it’s because they want a man that they can read like a book, but then Pastor Chris wouldn’t be drawn to honoring a bunch of rabble-rousers with a rebuttal

Well, I feel so sorry for them! We don’t owe anyone any explanation; we are not bothered about what anyone says. There’s only one person to whom we answer and who’s every word directs our lives; this person is God! If He is pleased with us and loves us, then we have absolutely nothing to worry about.

You know, the strength of a man is determined by how much opposition he faces and how many enemies he has. The greater a man is, the greater his opposition. So many self-acclaimed Christians or should I say religious people, cannot comprehend how one man can be SO LOADED. To them, Christianity and prosperity don’t go together. Tell me, how can God who created such splendor exemplified in the heavens and the earth father kids who revel in the dregs of poverty? Naturally fathers leave long-lasting legacies for their children and their descendants. How much more God?

Pastor Chris has been so blessed of God and there is really nothing that anyone can do to change that.

Christ Embassy – giving your life a meaning!!

I am so glad that I am a part of Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris rightly says….”Christ Embassy is more than a Church, it’s a vision, God’s vision”. Through intermingling with the message of this great man of God, we have become an integral part of a great vision.

I heard something this morning whilst listening to the message titled Three Important Laws“No member of this Church has a right to be poor, [he pauses to let it soak then continues] God has given us a ministry to help the poor, and they are not here”. Mind blowing isn’t it? This is just one example of the words that have built the vision into our hearts.

No matter how long or how little the time you have spent exposed to the ministry of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, there is one sure testimony we all have…”my life has been given a meaning”. It’s not a struggle; it is something that happens to you by the Spirit of God; it is a metamorphosis – an irreversible process of change, it takes place deep down in our hearts and it is manifest in our everyday lives.

The bible says God has placed eternity in the heart of man, there is no place where this truth is demonstrated more than in Christ Embassy; I’m sure you will concur when I say that one thing every disciple of this unique message has in common is that we are BIG, we are LOADED. The world has become small enough to fit into our imagination and we are persuaded beyond all reasonable doubt that anything is possible, how can you think like this and be poor?

Listening to Pastor Chris has made us champions, it has given us a “world-view” of life, we have become citizens of the world; it’s no surprise though because we have become partners with a man that has a mandate to reach the world. Together, we are building a happier world with love by giving individual lives a meaning.

STOP and THINK for a few minutes, where would you be today if you never met Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, if you never came across this glorious gospel according to Believers’ LoveWorld? I can only imagine what your answer is……oh, I’m so grateful!!! Click on the link below and share your testimony and …..let’s keep blogging.

Making a difference!!

Who would you consider to be a less privileged person? Someone who either does not possess such rights that I have or an orphan many would oft answer. I know of a young lad called Zion – his name I changed for the purpose of this post. He was eight years old when his father brought him to Lagos from Akwa-Ibom, both in Nigeria. On arrival, his father took him to Ojuelegba , a commercial hub in Lagos state , and asked him to wait for him under a fly-over while he headed to an unknown destination.

That wait turned out to be Zoe’s longest wait, for 24 hours he waited but his father never showed up. So at just eight years old, Zoe began his sojourn on the street of Lagos and a battle for survival, it was a risky and dangerous life underneath the Ojuelegba bridge where he was constantly at the mercy of other street urchins and marauders.

Today, the course of Zoe’s life has changed; he no longer resides underneath a bridge but lives in a well furnished apartment, attends school and speaks English fluently. He is happy, well dressed, well fed and above all, he knows that God has a purpose for his life and he’s is not an accident.

Indeed it is not by providence all this has occurred, but credit must go the InnerCity Missions of Christ Embassy for its great work among Street Children; glory to God for sending a man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome who is giving their lives a meaning – he would always tell us, ‘Remember, every child is your child’. I shudder sometimes shudder when I imagine what would have become of Zion if not for the ministry of Pastor Chris…

TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL

Ebong lives in the heart of Ilaje- Bariga, in Lagos state where he and his ten siblings were reared by his parents. Ilaje community is an area close to the river bank where during the raining season; several houses including Ebong’s house which overlook the river are regularly flooded. Ebong’s parents were petty traders and making ends meet was an almost impossible venture, consequently the children took to the streets to earn their daily bread, leaving them with no early school education. Ebong supported his family by selling groundnuts on the streets from the age of eight and watched with helplessness and deep sadness his peers attend school. His plea to his parents for such an opportunity always fell on deaf ears as they told him time and again they could not afford the cost

One bright morning Ebong set out to ply his trade; that day marked a turning point in the young lad’s life. Ilaje community was one of the many areas visited by the InnerCity Mission of Christ Embassy – a non-governmental association dedicated to reaching Street Children. They stormed the area with plenty of goodies for children, parents, and youth living in the community, they also brought along free copies of the October Rhapsody of Realities because that happened to be the day members of Christ Embassy embarked on the 2007 edition on the “Reach Out” Campaign – a campaign where millions of copies of Rhapsody of Realities, the bestselling daily devotional by Pastors Chris and Anita Oyakhilome was ditributed freely across the nation of Nigeria as we celebrated our Independence.

Foodstuff and household items were freely given out and a number children who wanted to attend school were given a once in a life time opportunity at the LoveWorld Academy – the educational program of the InnerCity Mission, Ebong was overjoyed when he was named among the beneficiaries of this program. Presently, Ebong is in school with the groundnuts stored away forever only to be hawked by him when he is not busy with his books. He is eternally thankful to God for giving Pastor Chris Oyakhilome this great vision.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome – a principality of our times

“Have You Heard Pastor Oyakhilome Preach In The Name Of Olokun? He[Pastor Chris” Is A Principality Of Our Times And Those Against Him Are Against God”

I did a double take when I saw this title in the Guardian Newspaper, it is the title of an interview with Ime James, Head of Media, BLW Inc. I must commend Chris Ikemba the writer of the article for his unbiased and sincere presentation of the facts and I must not forget to mention that Ime james is a veteran in the media industry and if I’m permitted to say, an excellent choice for the job. Honestly, its like a breath of fresh air…you know, reading something in a Nigerian newspaper about Pastor Chris that is actually factual, wow! I’m so excited!!

Excerpts:

Chris:Where did Pastor Chris derive his power from?
Ime: Where Jesus derives his power
Chris: We are not talking about Jesus here; we are talking about Pastor Chris
Ime: Who is the object of Pastor Chris’ worship, is it Jesus?
Chris: I don’t know
Ime: You should know because in all his preachings he never mentioned any of the local deities such as ogun; sango, Ayelala; Olokun, or have you heard him say agbara, amadioha, etc? All you’ve heard him say is – Jesus. From where do you think he derives his power? Out of the abundance of the heart of a man, the mouth will speak. If you asked me where does he derive his power from? I will also ask you “whose name does he call?” If you answer that question and if your answer is Jesus then his power is derived from the Spirit of Christ.

Many more issues…..

  • Women on trousers and uncovered hair?
  • What was the problem he had with Pastor Chris Okotie?
  • Is it not possible for someone to hide under the umbrella of Christ and still deceive people?
  • Why is it that your men jerry-curl their hair?
  • On the issue of prosperity message, which some sect said has encouraged youths to go into crime?

The Enigmatic Pastor Chris

At first glance, I thought this was a good one, you know it sounded like “The Charismatic Pastor Chris” or “The Energetic Pastor Chris” but upon closer examination…..an enigma is someone that is puzzling, ambiguous, or inexplicable; other synonyms are mysterious, perplexing. It doesn’t sound at all like the Pastor Chris we all know does it? It immediately reminds me of our Lord Jesus Christ and the religious leaders of His day, read this account from John9 [KJV]and note the interesting parallels:

Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see. Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, he is a prophet. But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight. And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see? His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: but by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself. These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.

Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples? Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.

The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvelous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshiper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
