|exactly, it’s ur nature naturally that you’re a either a man or a woman…..same way it’s ur nature spiritually to be righteous.
when you got born again you received the life of God which is the life of righteousness, and that doesn’t change.
you believed in Jesus and you became righteous, so it was a righteousness by faith and not by works, this means you continue to be righteous only by faith and not by what you do or don’t do.
it’s a nature and also a consciousness, you have to always be conscious of who you are; that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus……..even when you do something wrong, you just shake it off, obtain forgiveness, and continue living your righteous life to the glory of God. IF YOU’RE BORN AGAIN, THEN YOU ARE A VICTOR IN CHRIST JESUS!
SO KEEP WINNING AND KEEP SHINNING!
GOD BLESS YOU. VISIT THIS PAGE ANYTIME SOON:

CHRIST OUR PASSOVER
Let me read something to you from 1st Corinthians chapter 5 verse 7:
“Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us…”
He calls Christ our Passover and says is sacrificed for us, what does this mean?
Let’s find out in Exodus 12.
“ 1And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying,
2This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
3Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:
4And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.
5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
6And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
7And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.
8And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
9Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.
10And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.
11And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’s passover.
12For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.
13And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and WHEN I SEE THE BLOOD, I WILL PASS OVER YOU, AND THE PLAGUE SHALL NOT BE UPON YOU TO DESTROY YOU, when I smite the land of Egypt.”
He says “when I see the blood I will pass over you…” The blood here means something had to have died, the lamb was slain. And that term Passover is gotten from this understanding: that judgment passed over them because of the blood of the lamb.
In that same way, Christ is our Passover. Judgment has passed over us because of Christ’s blood which was shed for us. Christ is our Passover.
Now, with this in mind let’s read 1 Corinthians 11:23&24.
“ 23For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
24And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.”
He said ‘this is my body… Take, eat. This is my body.’ Christ is our Passover, because our salvation is in his blood – it came from his blood. That’s the reason for breaking of bread; we do it by faith knowing that his blood has done this for us – brought us from judgment into salvation.
Yes, because he died and his blood was shed on our behalf, not for himself. It was done for us.
The destroyer shall not come into our house, because of Christ our Passover. We have been passed over, because we don’t belong in darkness but translated from death unto life.
He has brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey. But there are giants there, and that’s the reason for our faith. Regardless of what shows up before us, we have passed over in his blood. We are not breaking bread so we can pass over; no it’s in commemoration that we have already passed over! It’s done already! We have translated from death unto life, from sickness unto health. From poverty unto riches! Hallelujah!
Our ministers will bring the bread to you now and we’d break it in a short while.
(Ministers designated at different locations within the congregation take the bread around to the saints of God. After the bread is served, Pastor says: “go ahead now and give him thanks.”
After the prayers, Pastor instructs the congregation to “Go ahead and break it and eat it.”)
In the same manner also, verse 27, he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
The blood speaks better things than the blood of Abel, speaking salvation instead revenge. Before you take that cup now, give him thanks.
This is one thing he told us to do, to drink the cup in commemoration of him.
It’s more potent than any syrup or medication for your body.
No matter what condition your body may be, it will end today. A miracle would take place in your body today.
It doesn’t matter that you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes, cancer, whatever the condition, as you drink of this cup, it would end today. A miracle would happen in your body today. Amen. Go ahead and take the cup now.
And when you are through you go back to your seat, worshipping and praising God.
It’s a month of dynamic prayers.
During the month of OCTOBER I told you what to do concerning meditation. If you did follow that instruction, I know by now you would have beautiful testimonies.
It pays to live with direction in our lives, that’s why we have the Holy Spirit, who has come to give us direction and guide us through the path of success.
Now here’s the direction for us for the new month of November.
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. THE EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILETH MUCH”. (KJV)
“Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. THE EARNEST (HEARTFELT, CONTINUED) PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN MAKES TREMENDOUS POWER AVAILABLE [dynamic in its working]”. (Amplified Bible)
In the context of prayer, we can do a lot in the lives of those around us. We can intercede for them, we can pray fervently for those whose faiths aren’t so strong.
The amplified bible translation of the above scripture instructs us that the prayers must be heartfelt prayers.
You press with your heart. You make power available for the change that you require, and God shows us how to make it happen. We don’t have to be disadvantaged. People around us don’t have to be hopeless.
That power is dynamic in its results. We’d pray this month everyday like this. It’s a month of dynamic prayers. We’re going to pray everyday in tongues.
If you don’t already speak in tongues, get to your pastor or leader to lay hands on you and the anointing will come upon you mightily to do so.
It’s very necessary because this month you’d pray dynamic prayers and the power would come upon you as you pray in tongues; then you declare God’s word boldly.
Make power available unfailingly. This month, that’s what we’re going to be doing, we’re making power available.
PASTORS AND PARTNERS CONFERENCE 2010
It’s our pastors and partners conference also, in this month of November. All our ministry members are ideally partners, not because we want it so, but because the Spirit of God made it so.
So you can participate from your churches, you don’t necessarily have to travel to Lagos for the conference, except of course you have been invited and you are already registered. I understand that registration has closed, but confirm with your pastor to know whether or not you’d be travelling.
PASTORCHRISLIVE ON TWITTER
About six months ago, we began to use the twitter application to send out prayers, information about prayers, and also exhortations, prophecies and blessings.
We opened it up in July and later added some competition to it in August.
So far it’s been fun and with tremendous results. We gave you three months from August to October, to get us from where we were to 1 million followers.
But as at today we have 2 million 2 hundred plus followers, and that’s because you all worked to make it happen.
It’s just wonderful; I want to thank all of you for making it work.
Some of you got people to follow us everyday, imagine what would happen if we did this for the next one year.
We were the fastest growing on twitter and they had to write us to FIND out what was happening.
I’m not even sure that twitter would be robust enough to carry what we would like to do with the gospel. So I’m asking you techy guys to get on it, and develop for us reliable software on that.
TOP TEN CHURCH PASTORS
Top ten church pastors are here with me, and we’d be listening to some them on what they did and how they made it happened.
Pastor Afolabi: Young people are interested more in the internet. So we had to get them through their data bases, went to secondary schools. We thought it was important.
Pastor vale: We told the brethren this is what we ought to do now.
It was a church growth target for us. Through twitter we got over 60percent growth in our church attendance. The truth of the matter is nothing that you set your heart to do that you can’t do.
Pastor Tony is one of the most innovative persons in this country, he’s the CEO of INFINITY TV, only last year won award on media innovation in Nigeria.
Following Pastor Chris on Twitter has helped us to consolidate some of our evangelical work. We had to show them practically in church what to do and how to recruit others.
The spirit of God said that ph can be profitable to the ministry. You can sit in your house and pray with Pastor Chris on twitter.
As at the time we were praying against accidents based on the tweet pastor sent, a lady got involved an accident and was already given up to die, but we prayed in church and miraculously the lady’s life was preserved.
It has helped us on leadership development in church. Some followers had testimonies too, a marriage saved, and a visa application that was successful, etc.
When I’m sending you those tweets to pray, they are actually things that I’m planning to pray about.
Thank the Lord for what he’s doing in our lives; as well as through us in the lives of other people.
Father we thank you. We thank you for opening our minds, and for filling us with the Holy Ghost.
Thank you for teaching us your word. Thank you that we know you.
This month is a great month for us as we would make tremendous progress. Therefore we rebuke sickness, disease and infirmity in the lives of our brethren, and we proclaim healing, restoration and strength. We are strengthened and we move on through the power of the Holy Ghost.
IF YOU’RE BORN AGAIN, THEN YOU ARE A VICTOR IN CHRIST JESUS!
SO KEEP WINNING AND KEEP SHINNING!
GOD BLESS YOU. VISIT THIS PAGE ANYTIME SOON:
