CONTINUE IN PRAYER.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES TUESDAY 19TH OCTOBER.

CONTINUE IN PRAYER BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.

Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

There’re certain situations you may face and all you have to do is pray once, and that’s it. But there’re other situations that call for persistence in prayer. The Word of God teaches us about different kinds of prayers and what rules apply to them.

SPEAK IN OTHER TONGUES NOW

For example, when dealing with things about other people, especially when it has to do with their wrong choices and beliefs, you don’t just pray once and go away. You continue in prayer, interceding for them, rebuking the adversary that’s deceiving them. You have to repeatedly mount pressure against the adversary until he lets go and there’s a change.

There’s so much evil going on in the world today and the plan of the enemy is to set up the world of the antichrist before the time. But we have to prevent that. The Bible says the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available. We will keep pressing in the spirit, overturning the decrees and activities of darkness.

God has never thought, and doesn’t think, Satan is a problem, because He gave us authority over demons and the powers of darkness. The problem, for the most part, has been that some of God’s children focused more on personal gains instead of the faith to save men. Our world would surely be a better place if we would focus more on the souls of men in fervent prayers, intercessions, supplications, giving of thanks and preaching the Word.

That’s what He charged us to do, and He told us the outcome and why we should do it: “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:1-4). Follow the Word and pray like this.

Jesus said, “…men ought always to pray, and not to faint” (Luke 18:1). If we’d follow the order and pray as the Spirit indicates, we’d take this whole world for Jesus Christ. Glory to God!

DIED FOR THE UNGODLY.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES FRIDAY 15TH OCTOBER.

HE DIED FOR THE UNGODLY BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.

And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled (Colossians 1:21).

The scripture above describes the ungodly as alienated from God, and enemies in their minds by wicked works. In other words, they were enemies of God in their minds because of their wicked works. Evidently, it wasn’t God who declared them enemies; rather, He’s the One reconciling them. The Bible says, “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them…” (2 Corinthians 5:19).

This is similar to what transpired between God and Adam in the Garden. Adam sinned against God and ran into hiding (Genesis 3:8). But God came looking for him; He said, “Adam, where are you?” How gracious He is! While we were sinners, in God’s mind, we weren’t enemies; He was working out how to bring us to Himself; He was working on a plan.

Colossians 1:22 tells us that the purpose and summation of Christ’s redemptive work was “…to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight.” He knew what He was going to do before He did it. Romans 5:6 says, “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.” This is so touching.

He didn’t wait for us to become godly before He died for us. He initiated the reconciliation: “For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life” (Romans 5:10). Hallelujah! Let this love be expressed through you to the ungodly in reaching out to them with the Gospel. Let them know God isn’t mad at them; they can come to Him just as they are and be accepted.

 DIED FOR THE UNGODLY...

He said in Isaiah 1:18, “…though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” He’s the One that washes, sanctifies and justifies the ungodly in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. Hallelujah!

PRAYER
Holy Father, thank you for committing to me the ministry of reconciliation; I’m grateful for the privilege of being your co-labourer and partner in ministering to the ungodly and bringing them salvation in Christ Jesus. As the Gospel is preached around the world today, I pray that faith is stirred in the hearts of many to receive the message and be converted, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

WE HAVE SOMETHING THEY CAN’T WITHSTAND.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES WEDNESDAY 13TH OCTOBER.

WE HAVE SOMETHING THEY CAN’T WITHSTAND BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.

For through the voice of the LORD shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod (Isaiah 30:31).

In the Old Testament, God prophetically described the spirit of the antichrist in several ways for us, and He helped us understand what that spirit would do in different phases, until he’s fully manifested in a man. But as long as we’re still in the earth, before the Rapture of the Church, Satan and his cohorts of darkness don’t stand a chance in establishing their evil order. We have something that they can’t withstand: the Name of Jesus and the Word of God spoken in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Observe something in our theme verse: the phrase, “the voice of the LORD”; it refers to the Word of God spoken by the power of the Holy Spirit. That means the “rhema” of God, which is the sword of the Spirit; it discomfits Satan and the princes of darkness.

Satan puts people in bondage and makes tyrants and despots out of leaders. Think about a man who was very humane when he was elected a government official but suddenly becomes a tyrant afterwards. Why? Satan took over his mind. This is what happened in some countries. Suddenly, some leaders metamorphosed into cruel dictators and the people lost their civil liberties.

But the Bible says, “And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. For through the voice of the LORD shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod” (Isaiah 30:30-31).

WE HAVE SOMETHING THEY CAN’T WITHSTAND...

“The Assyrian” is one of the prophetic names of the Antichrist. Thus, by the Word of God on our lips we cut off and beat down this evil prince of darkness and thwart his plans. As long as we, the Church of Jesus Christ, are in the earth, only the will and purpose of God will be established. Glory to God!

CONFESSION
By the power of the Holy Spirit, the adversary is beaten down and the plans of the enemy shattered. The hearts of men around the world are stirred and established in righteousness; the glory of God rests on, and influences the nations and all forms of evil, turmoil, wickedness and terror the devil seeks to unleash on the world are thwarted, to the praise and glory of the blessed Lord Jesus. Amen.

HEALING IN HIS WINGS.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES TUESDAY 12TH OCTOBER.

HEALING IN HIS WINGS BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.

But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall (Malachi 4:2).

In the Scriptures, there’re several instances where people touched the hem of Jesus’ garment and received instant healing. For example, Luke 8 talks about the woman with the issue of blood, who suffered for twelve long years, spending all her earnings on physicians to no avail. But the Bible says she “… touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched” (Luke 8:44).

The word, “border” in this verse is “Kraspedon” (Greek), and it means fringes or tassels. Also, in Matthew 14, when Jesus came to the land of Gennesaret, the people of that region rushed to Him for healing, and the Bible says they “…besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole” (Matthew 14:36).

They brought so many sick people to Jesus, and He didn’t have to do anything; all they needed was to touch the fringes of His garment. Remarkable! Mark 6:56 says, “And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.”

What was special about the border of Jesus’ garment? Every Jew had the same fringes in their garments as Jesus (Read Numbers 15:37-38). So, it wasn’t about the fashion or style of His garment but the one wearing it. Those that touched Him to be healed believed He was the Messiah; therefore, everything about Him, including the fringes of His garment, would produce healing.

That’s what we read in our theme verse. It says: “…the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings….” The word, “wings” is “kânâph” in Hebrew, and it refers to the border or the fringes. Jesus had healing in His fringes, and they knew it! Glory to God! That power is still available today in His Name. So, if you’re sick in your body today, or you know someone who is, use the Name of Jesus against that sickness, disease or infirmity; healing is guaranteed. Hallelujah!
