Pastor Chris Oyakhilome – a man with a passion for souls!!

pastor-enhanced

I want to spend my life, mending broken people

I want to spend my life, removing pain

Lord, let my words, heal a heart that hurts

I want to spend my whole life [all of my life] mending broken people

I have heard Pastor Chris Oyakhilome sing this song so many times and I remember he told us how as a young teenage student, he would sing this song over and over again with tears in his eyes because he was consumed with a passion for souls. Over the years, this passion has remained the hallmark of his life and ministry. Well, I have a beautiful piece here by my friend that says more, enjoy!!

What is passion? It refers in this context to an intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction. It can also be a strong liking or desire for or devotion to some activity, object, or concept.

The Lord Jesus Christ described John the Baptist as a “burning and shining light” in John 5:35. This description depicts a man who is about his business in a diligent and passionate manner that produced evident results.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome [Phd] is a present day example of someone that could be described as a burning and shining light. He surely is about his business in such a passionate manner that it shows in the kind of crusades and meetings he organizes and the results or outcome of such meetings. Pastor Chris’ passion is directed to one thing and one thing alone – the salvation of souls from around the world.

He started off with the vision to ‘take God’s divine presence to the peoples and nations of the world’; the vision has today engulfed the entire nation of Nigeria, Africa, Europe, Asia, South America, Canada, USA and indeed the whole world. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has brought together some of the largest gatherings in several countries around the world; he has hosted meetings where more than three million people have been in attendance in one single night.

What then could then be his driving force and motivation? Time and time again, the man of God has expressed and demonstrated two major things – his deep fellowship with the Holy Spirit and his “un-quenching” passion for souls. He never stops praying for them, he never stops teaching and preaching the gospel and he continuously draws the unsaved to his meetings in large numbers.

Sadly, there are many Christians who are saved, “hell-proof” and “heaven-bound”, who do not care about the souls of the lost; what a contrast to the Lord Jesus Christ – a man whose every waking activity was motivated by a passion for the lost in his day. [Luke 19:10; Mark 10:45]

But thanks be unto God for men like Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and the army of passionate soul winners he is raising all over the world. Men and women who, like himself, are ever hungry and passionate about the salvation of the souls of men.

Rhema for TODAY!!!

We are a people of prophesy!!! Sounds familiar? I know it does, this is a foundational truth for us “Pastor Chris Fans”…….that is why in the montage for one of his TV programs he says, keep saying it, don’t stop talking it. With this in mind, we are adding a new daily feature to our blog, we will dig into our archives and post confessions and prayers from Rhapsody of Realities as well as Pastor Chris messages. Between us, we have attended meetings that date back well into the 1980’s so we’ve been at this for a while. This is the reason why we are not moved by critics, we have seen and heard so much that we have become fully persuaded that Pastor Chris is indeed a man of God…..so dig into the posts on the Rhema for TODAY page and keep saying it!!

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.
