OPENING

This is a very special month – the month of March, and we’d begin tonight by reading from 1 Corinthians 11:23 – 29.
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.
 25After the same manner also 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.
 26For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.
 27Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
 29For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.

It’s our Communion Service tonight in which we’d be breaking break, just as the Lord Jesus said for us to do in remembrance of him.
And in the early church they did a lot of this too:
Acts 2:42.
And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

The brethren continued steadfastly in the doctrine of the apostles, frequently, regularly, and walking in the light of the apostles’ teachings – “in breaking of bread and in fellowship”, the Bible says.
What we are doing right now is fellowship because we are doing this regularly and together.
We pray together also, like we do when I send the prayer points on Yookos for us to pray together. We pray in one spirit and in the spirit.

THE BREAKING OF BREAD

We would go ahead to break bread right now. So take your bread, hold it in your hands, and wait for the instruction for us to break it together.
Remember He said, in the 28th verse, let every man examine himself. Why? Verse 27 says: whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
Notice he didn’t say being unworthy, but unworthily, meaning in a manner unworthy of the body of Christ, unworthy of the body of Christ. He’s instructing us to do it reverently.
Because the communion is a demonstration of your faith in the body of Jesus Christ and what he has done for us.

Colossians 1:12-13.
12Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet (qualified us) to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
 13Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

 He has qualified us.
So he’s made us worthy and we should be grateful and thankful. He qualified us by himself. So you don’t need to try to qualify by yourself, and that’s the reason you can take the communion today.
Sometimes Satan can get into your mind to tell to you something different and try to confuse you. He could accuse you of doing something wrong and tell you that you are unworthy of the communion because of the wrong you did. That’s not true. If you do something wrong, acknowledge it and then accept his forgiveness.
So you take that bread and say:
“Father in the name of Jesus I belong to you and I thank because you have made me worthy. I also thank you for making me a new creation. Lord, I thank you for the blood of your Son Jesus shed for me and his body that was broken me
The chastisement for my sins was laid upon him and with his stripes I was healed. That’s remarkable, and it’s because as you eat it you are eating health intro your body.
Break it, and eat now.
Choir ministrations begin as the congregation break and eat their bread.

THE CUP

In the same manner, he says, he also 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.
You’d move from your seat to the stand closest to you, where you’d take the drink.
As you proceed, have it in your heart that strength has come into your body today; and also remember our oneness with the Lord Jesus. Because he brought us life which we have received, and now we have it in every fiber of our being.
As you drink it, nothing of Satan remains in you. Never accept the accusations of the devil.
Go to that stand and take the cup and drink it now.

Father we take the cup and drink in remembrance of the blood that was shed, and for the oneness that we share with Christ in the name of Jesus.

TALK SHOW ON NIGHT OF BLISS SOUTH AFRICA

I welcome you to this special and very important segment. We’d talk about our Night of Bliss on the 11th of March. We are walking in the calendar of God, walking in his steps.
Night of Bliss is not just a cliché it’s a name that best describes the plan of God for the program.

On set with me are some of our senior pastors:
v     Reverend Tom Amenkheinan,
v     Evangelist Eddie Owase,
v     Reverend Ray Okocha,
v     Pastor Ose Oyakhilome.

Evangelist Owase:
Night of Bliss is a set time by God to bless – it is a time to answer the prayer of many. They have cried to God for a long time, and God has set this time to bring the solution to people, because it is the last hope for many.
Just like when Phillip brought the gospel to Samaria because it was the set time for Samaria.

Reverend Chris:
It is a set time! That’s wonderful. We are not here because there are no other ministers; it’s in fact because of them that we are able to come preach in South Africa. But you know we are all gifted differently. So, God has anointed us for something special which we have brought to this nation.
God blesses men through other men. He blessed all the nations of the world through Abraham. He sent Jesus in the form of a man to the whole of mankind.
So don’t let it be a surprise when we say God sent us. He sends men, and there are necessary credentials with which to know. Just like when John sent his disciples to ask Jesus, if he was the Messiah they had been waiting for or should they expect another. And Jesus responded by sending a message back to tell John that the blind receive sight, the deaf hear, the dumb speak and the lame walk. These were the same credentials for Jesus Christ, and which we also present today.
And remember, no man can do these things except God be with him.
Thank God he made his presence available to us through his word. Just like he did in the bible days, otherwise we would have been lost today without the power and presence of God in demonstration.
I’m so glad to have the opportunity to bless you.

Reverend Tom.
It’s an all night long experience with God, because you don’t want to leave, just like the apostles felt with Jesus at the mount of transfiguration. At Night of Bliss the whole arena would be filled with presence of God, and there would be miracles everywhere.

Reverend Chris:
There’s just no way to describe the experience. But what’s your role? How should you prepare?
Now, let me quickly say this: the stadium cannot take everyone. And so we have made tickets available. Please don’t waste the tickets. Only those who have tickets should come to the stadium, and we are also making arrangements for those who do not have tickets.
For example our churches would be open for you to be able to participate. And the information would be available on the website.
So whatever your expectations are God would be able to meet them.

What are the expectations?

Pastor Ose:
The expectations are high and people are so excited. The people can’t wait for that day to come. They have their Night of Bliss chest tags with them everywhere they go.  There are already numerous testimonies of people receiving their healings from amongst those who have accepted our invitations for the Night of Bliss.

Reverend Chris:
The anointing has gone ahead of us.

Evangelist Owase:
It’s the same testimony from previous Night of Bliss programs in: Benin, Port Harcourt, Aba, etc – people receiving miracles and getting healed by making contact with the chest tags.
It’s a time of the spirit, a time of solution and God has brought an answer to everyone.

Reverend Chris:
That night also, we’d take time to pray for the people and nations of Southern Africa. Something special is bound to happen.

Rev Ray:
These are signs of good things to come; God has a definite desire and plan for everyone who’s coming for the program.
And everyone hearing about this program must also take advantage of it.

Pastor Ose:
Destinies would be changed.

Reverend Chris:
Thank you for coming on set and sharing with us your thoughts and expectations on the Night of Bliss South Africa.
I want to pray for you who are attending this program, but the first thing is your attention. Your attention is necessary; you must be able to pay attention on the night of the program. Don’t move around, rather stay in one place. You would get the best of the program if you do this.

Father thank you for bring a blessing to the nations of the world.
I pray for everyone at the Night of Bliss, whether physically present or watching from our viewing centers, our churches or other channels, I pray that the anointing would be on them in a special way.
Let your angels go now into these nations and work in the lives of men and women to position them for the best that you have for them in this program. 
Thank you for the salvation of the lives of men and women, the healings, the miracles and the testimonies. Thank you for the changed lives. Amen.

YOOKOS SEGMENT

We launched our own micro-blogging and social networking site on 31st December and it’s been amazing ever since.
One major feature has been we reaching people all over the world and getting them to pray with Pastorchrislive.
We’ve also started a contest in February which will run all the way into the month of October.
And so far for the month of February, we already have those who have been active at the zonal church levels.
Here we have some results of the top winners in this month of February.

With me here are some leaders who obviously are winners in our competition this month:  

v     Evangelist Eddie Owase
v     Pastor Deola Okeowo
v     Pastor Tony Ikeoku

So tell us, what has it been like Pastor Tony?

Pastor Tony Ikeoku – Christ Embassy Lagos Zone 4
Yookos is new so we had to first understand the application, but it’s been exciting for us.

Pastor Deola Okeowo – Christ Embassy Lagos Zone 5
Yookos is ours, it is home grown and so we’re more comfortable to put our comments unlike was the case on twitter.

Evangelist Eddie Owase – Christ Embassy Midwest Zone Benin
It is home for us, like Pastor Deola has said and it’s better than twitter.  We are more comfortable to use to post ministry programs – just like we sent live feeds on Yookos during the AFM live events and there are lots of testimonies.

Reverend Chris:
Sometimes you look at the vehicle and ask what you can do with it, Yookos is different and exciting and the developments and new features are very fast and rapid – in just two months.
One of it is the privacy features – to determine who sees what on your profile and who does not.  You can go to the Yookos blog to study some of these features.
There’s also the Yookos chat, just like yahoo messenger.
The remarkable participation of all our brethren is amazing.

Now for our results on the contest:
1.      Lagos Zone 5
2.      Lagos Zone 4
3.      Midwest Zone Benin

Campus winners were: BLW Zone C, BLW Campus Zone J.

Remember, were talking about ten million followers on Yookos by October. Well done, congratulations.

What feature do you enjoy the most Pastor Tony?

Pastor Tony Ikeoku – Christ Embassy Lagos Zone 4
I like using the albums. The site is much faster and quicker now.

Reverend Chris:
Talking about speed, it’s going to get even faster because we would regionalize service.
Then we have a most amazing team of people who make up the ‘Yookos Team”. You know Yookos doesn’t sleep so we have a team that doesn’t sleep. They are the foundational team members; always working on this round the clock to keep it alive.

Some of you are very good in the techy world; we ask to get involved with Yookos. This is a great gift from us to the whole world.

Pastor Deola Okeowo
Pastor, just being with you and praying with you on Yookos has been a big blessing to us all.
We have had several testimonies in this regard – miracles as a result of these prayer sessions on Yookos.

Reverend Chris:
When we give those instructions to pray, take them seriously.
This month of March is a month of testimonies, from beginning to the end. If you have any crisis or any difficulties, you say to yourself, ‘this situation is for my testimony’. It’s happening in my month of testimonies; therefore I’m coming with testimonies.
Oh hallelujah!! I’m excited about it, its testimonies all the way, from the beginning to the end.
The anointing is on you. The glory of God is in your life.

Father, in the name of Jesus, we thank you for this glorious month of March; we thank you for the anointing in our lives. Thank you for the Holy Spirit that is at work in us. We declare that we are advancing by the spirit – in the name of Jesus. We are grateful, and we are thankful.
Thank you for your grace upon your children, that lifts them that helps them, and makes them great.
We are the seed of Abraham, and Lord we are thankful for this great life that is at work in them.
And because they have set their love upon you, you’d lead them and guide them. You have made them sons of consolation.
If any one be sick, I declare that they be healed right now from the crown of their heads to the soles of their feet. They are healed now in Jesus name.

Thank you all for your time and May God bless you.

IF YOU’RE BORN AGAIN, THEN YOU ARE A VICTOR IN CHRIST JESUS!
SO KEEP WINNING AND KEEP SHINNING!
GOD BLESS YOU.
