HIGHLIGHTS OF THE TEACHING BY OUR OVERSEER AND FOUNDER Pst Charles Chukwuemezie
WHAT MAKES YOU WILLING
Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
There is a day God manifests himself. Serve God every opportunity. Power opens door for blessing.
Willing people volunteer for kingdom work without persuasion. They are willing. They are men and women who go on rampage for Christ, they have caught the fire.
They are not reminded to come to church early. They never miss services.
The reason why you are still giving excuses is because you have not contacted power.
If you contact power nothing will be a hinderance.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Give no excuse. If you contact power, excuse is not important.
If you catch it, nobody will tell you to wake up and pray, to go and evangelize.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
In the midst of cruelty against your faith, will you still stand for Jesus? This is the proof of true Christianity.
Stephen was stoned to death because of Jesus, but he refused to denounced Jesus.
Jesus did not die for you to buy lands and jeeps. He died for lost souls
Philip took Italy for Jesus and was beheaded for the gospel.
Peter was hung upside down.
Thomas took India for Jesus, but he was killed for the gospel.
The disciples loved their life but not to save it from dying for the gospel of Jesus
Pray for souls. Are you ready to lift the name of Jesus?
Don’t denounce Jesus. Let your family and friends know that you are proud of your salvation.
It is good to have houses, cars businesses, but it is not more important than souls.
And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judaea a certain prophet, named Agabus. And when he was come unto us, he took Paul’s girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles. And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.
Paul was willing to die for Jesus.
Seeing miracles happen is not enough for you to catch the power. It only makes you to believe.
You must contact it through the Holy Spirit.
If your husband or wife catches the fire, and you don’t catch it, you will quench that fire. It is a personal experience.
Read: John 21:3-18
Peter influenced and discouraged others to go fishing.
As a Christian, your behavior will discourage unbelievers.
After abandoning your ministry, leaving service to go for business, what did you achieve?
Don’t do without Jesus. Certain things must wait for Jesus.
When you don’t contact power, you do eye service, you do thing to please your pastor.
God knows those that love him. John was with Jesus all the way.
Go for the Lords presence not his presents.
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.
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Power does not come except through the Holy Ghost. The Holy Spirit gives utterance, boldness and power
Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
Peter and the disciples contacted the power and 3000 souls were won.
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
Catch the fire. Be willing
God bless you sir, we were very blessed and charged by these words. Amen.
