Night of Bliss South Africa with Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

In just a matter of hours, it will be “kick-off” time for the Night of Bliss with the man of God Pastor Chris Oyakhilome at the Soccer City; as at the time of writing, the venue is almost jammed. I am not exaggerating!! This reminds me of what the man of God Pastor Chris Oyakhilome always says: the stadia of this world were not built for soccer or any other sporting event, they were built for preaching the gospel. In his home country Nigeria, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has used the biggest spaces available with same result – maximum capacity crowds to the point where people need to be turned back.

Here in South Africa, he has done it again and again…..sceptics said he couldn’t do it this time, not the soccer city they said, even the crowd of football fans from all over the world did not fill out the soccer city during the last world cup. Well, if you could come with me to the stadium now, the facts speak for themselves – it is almost packed out. Thank God the organizers anticipated this and made elaborate preparations for those who will not get into the venue – the sheer scale of their preparations lets you know the reach of this event.

As posted on the Official Website for the program:

1. All those who collected tickets must be at the stadium between 8am and 12noon.

2. Night of Bliss South Africa will be aired LIVE in the following national Television Stations

Kenya [Citizen TV]

Burundi [RTNB Radio and National Roadcaster]

Zambia [ZNBC]

Swaziland [Swazi TV]

Malawi [MBC TV]

Zimbabwe [ZBC TV]

Lesotho [Lesotho TV]

South Africa [Soweto TV] – please note that Soweto TV is on DSTV.

It will be LIVE on our station LoveworldSat; in this way most of our invitees can participate through the night.

Apart from this, it will be LIVE on the internet and at 91 Viewing Centers spread over 9 countries in Southern Africa; this does not include the numerous viewing centers in Nigeria and other parts of Africa and indeed all over the world wherever members of this great ministry are found. When addressing the brethren at the March LIVE broadcast of the monthly communion service tried to discourage them from travelling into South Africa because of the limited space available at the program venue – he encouraged them to hook up to the LIVE broadcast of the event instead.

Needless to say, it will be a harvest of miracles, the excitement and the expectation in the arena is palpable; you can tell that the many wheelchairs all over the arena will be left empty by morning, everyone in here knows that the very air in this place will become electrified with God’s presence once the program begins. And when the man of God Pastor Chris Oyakhilome mounts that stage…..hey! anything is possible. That’s why they came, that’s why they have been sitting and waiting patiently from as early as 7.00am – they know that Night of Bliss South Africa will be a celebration of miracles.

I have to go now…..but  I will be back after the event to share my thoughts, do hit the comment below and share your expectations and this night, follow me on Yookos for updates.

Susan Boyle – the woman who dared to dream

Susan Boyle - the woman who dared to dream

I stumbled on the story of Susan Boyle and I followed it to the end of the third series of the show – Britain’s Got Talent!!! Wow!!! Personally, I think she should have won the show; apart from the fact that she has a great voice, her act and her story is better suited for a performance before her Royal Majesty, the Queen. Isn’t it amazing? In just a few weeks her life has been changed forever all because she dared to dream.

But this is not a Susan Boyle fan blog, all you need is google her name and you’ll find all the juicy tit-bits about her…..what caught my attention is the fact that as a result of her sudden rise to fame, she got so much media attention, both positive and negative. Yes, negative!!! I was comforted because it then means Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is not the only one getting negative press for doing good.

I mean, what did she do wrong except shake up the staus-quo and give hope to the millions who were thrilled by her performances? She proved that indeed anyone, regardless of your educational background, social connections and even your looks, can make a difference. What did Pastor Chris Oyakhilome do wrong except to live a life consumed with a passion to give lives a meaning? All this man of God wants to do is reach more people with the gospel of Jesus Chris, impact the world with the transforming power of this gospel, affect more lives with his message and turn them on for Jesus. What did he ever do to deserve such criticism?

I took a trip to Nairaland recently and I was shocked at some of the responses posted in that forum [I reserve my detailed comments on this to a later time]. Well, it’s been more than 2000 years and individuals and organizations alike are spending multiplied millions to cast aspersions on the person of Jesus Christ and to discredit His miracles. In Luke2:34, the Prophet said concerning Jesus Christ ever before he performed a single miracle….this child is for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against.

I find solace in this, Pastor Chris is identified with this Jesus and he therefore is a sign that shall be spoken against. Pastor Chris will always say “Supernatural power brings supernatural persecution”, he is wearing a “Coat of many Colors” and like Joseph, his biggest critics are his brothers…..I look forward to reading your comments on this post.

Congratulations Susan Boyle, I pray that you will make the most of your dream.

Charting a new trend in Christianity

Months and weeks of waiting have finally come down to a few hours, to coin a Latin phrase; time does indeed pass quickly. All around several Christ Embassy churches, announcements, publicity campaigns had inundated members on the upcoming event-Pastor Chris Online, weeks ahead of D-day.

However different from previous campaigns, there were neither large brightly lit banners nor posters for invited guests; everyone attending this landmark program will be attending electronically- an online guest. This revolutionary event intends to break the barriers of time, space and culture. In two hours, the President of Believers LoveWorld Inc. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is expected to attend to the needs of an online audience that he’d not be seeing; it will be his first. He’d teach, preach, take questions and pray for the sick. He’d also most likely pray for the unconverted. Perhaps it wouldn’t be improbable if you concluded this to be the next phase of the charismatic movement – an internet evangelistic outreach.

The man at the center of this all isn’t new to ground breaking: in the 90’s his teaching and healing programs broadcast in his home country Nigeria attracted millions of viewers. Praying for the sick reading testimonies of the sick soon turned to be a prime time event on several local TV stations. Another first was the launch of the first Satellite TV Network to broadcast from Africa to the rest of the world; LoveWorld Christian NetWork [LCN] continues to record million of viewers worldwide. What about the use of chairs in outdoor crusades that over the years have had thousands and more recently millions in attendance?

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has never hidden his desire to capture an ever burgeoning internet audience. ‘The internet is the future of world evangelism’ he had pronounced years ago. Today Christ Embassy is deeply rooted and spinning its influence in the World Wide Web. Its website is hugely resourceful – Internet paraphernalia; DVD’s, newsletters, podcasts, e-books, etc inundates its site and ensures that first time visitors are hooked and can’t wait for a second look-in.

There is huge expectation and excitement amongst members who are unanimous that the online event will mirror the ministry’s previous successes. Social networking sites are already being bombarded with notices, invites, ads; groups and blogs are being formed, all for this historic event. Suddenly with millions of eyes on desktops, laptops and palmtops visual display screens and eager fingers caressing mouses and touchpads, a click away could guarantee a change of destiny for millions of lives.
