HIGHLIGHTS OF THE TEACHING OUR OVERSEER AND FOUNDER Pst Charles Chukwuemezie
HOW TO SUSTAIN THE FIRE.
It’s time to manifest. The beauty of fire is when it spreads. If you want your fire to continue, look for how to spread it.
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Once you catch the fire you become a witness immediately. Start from where you are. The proof of the fire you have is when the people around you have contacted it. People around you must experience the fire, they must see it. Speak about God, your experiences, what you have learned. Give testimonies of the act of God.
As peter was preaching the power of the holy ghost came upon them and 3000 souls were won.
Share the experiences , how people were healed and the miracles you have seen.
Moses shared his experience at the burning bush with Jethro and Aaron and he went on rampage.
Don’t let the experiences you had die with you; share it.
And Moses said unto the Lord , O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. And the Lord said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the Lord ? Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.
God wants to use you and your obedience qualifies you to a new realm of blessing. Your obedience destroys certain things in your life and links you to a new level.
God knows you can do it, He knows your weaknesses. He knows what He wants to do with you. He will make you better,God will qualify you for the new level He is taking you to. He wants to prosper you to do what you have never done before.
Don’t miss the opportunity to be used by God, to lose those weaknesses.
If God calls you to join the choir, it means God wants to change you, make you comfortable and he will provide the choir clothes.
God wants to use people that are strong and able because the weak cannot serve God enough.
And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.
God always has a reserve bench. If you don’t want to be used, someone else will be used. You cannot hold God to ransom.
Any area you refuse to be delivered from is the area you will never recover from. Stop making excuses with anything in your life when God gives you an opportunity else you will never see it again. Moses remained a stammerer and his quick temper never left him for the rest of his life.
And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock? And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also. And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.
HOW TO SUSTAIN THE FIRE
Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.
Preach Christ anywhere you are. The proof that you have fire is when you spread it.
Anyone you see is a candidate of heaven.
Cast out devils, deliver people, heal the sick, you have the power and the devil is afraid of the power you have. Don’t be afraid or be intimidated, you have the power and authority, the devil has no right to mess with your life, family, and health. Every devil is below your feet. Handle any situation, pray boldly, for the man God is sending has no fear. You are sealed with the blood of Jesus. Know that you have contacted fire. Be confident of what God has given to you.
You have the fire, don’t let it remain dormant in you.
Be alert in your spirit, be alert even when you dream. If you are weak in the spirit demons will mess you up.
2. HAVE THE FEAR OF GOD
Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
The fear of God will help you control your self and keep your conscience alert.
Without fear of God, Balak sold out the Israelites, and Samson because of immorality lost his powers
3. PRAYER AND FASTING
In the place of the spirit, fire is maintained.
Prayer and fasting is the food of the spirit. Fasting must be accompanied with studying of the word and prayer and meditation else it is just hunger strike.
What will keep the power is what brought the power which is why Jesus was always involved in prayer, fasting and meditation.
The alter of prayer is the alter of fire.
Fasting does not change God, fasting changes you.
4. BE CONSTANTLY FEEDING ON THE WORD OF GOD.
If you read your bible constantly, you will get Gods revelation.
And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out: and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn thereon the fat of the peace offerings. The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out.
The Wood represent Gods word
Study your bile constantly. When you are with your phone, google scriptures. Spend more time with Gods word than with friends.
The Lord’s voice crieth unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.
Feed thy people with thy rod, the flock of thine heritage, which dwell solitarily in the wood, in the midst of Carmel: let them feed in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old.
5. ALWAYS PRAISE GOD
Don’t let any situation overwhelm you. You may have challenges, but praise God no matter. You will win. Your attitude matters.
Paul and Silas were in chains, but they praised God and they were set free.
Spread it, transfer it.
Organise a strategy for evangelism.
Tests will come, but have a positive attitude
And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God .
God bless you sir, we were very blessed by this teaching. Amen.
