    APRIL COMMUNION SERVICE WITH PASTOR CHRIS

    Pastor Gbenga Ayodele | April 8, 2011 at 4:21 PM | Categories: Uncategorized | URL: http://wp.me/pylDp-2h

    INTRODUCTORY

    You’re welcome to this Special Communion Service for the month of April. But first, I like to remind you that on the first Sunday of every month, apart from taking the communion we also take time to pray. So, we’re going to be doing some of that today.

    Acts 2:42, 46-47.
    42And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
    46And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
    47Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

    In Christianity we have both an inner guide and instruction manual – that’s the Holy Spirit and the word of God. So you’re not in the dark on what your life should be like, We have an understanding based on God’s word, now that we have come to Christ.
    Notice, the above scripture didn’t say they continued as their minds wanted, or say they continued as they deemed fit. But they continued together in steadfastness as the Spirit of God leads, even though ‘in the apostles doctrine’.

    Right now where ever you are, I want you to rise up on your feet and let’s begin to pray. Pray in the Holy Ghost.

    THE COMMUNION

    Matthew 26:26-28.
    26And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
    27And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
    28For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

    I want you to observe what the scripture says in vs 26.
    “…He took bread and blessed it, and brake it…..” This was done at the table as they were eating which shows that they had finished eating.
    1 Corinthians 11:23 and 24 says “….that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you….”

    He says this is my body, but we know that his body was complete and he didn’t take a chunk out of his body, and give them to eat. Its symbolic of what he was going to do for us.
    And so they continued steadfastly in breaking of bread, it didn’t say in eating of bread. The apostles introduced the breaking of bread to the believers and they continued in it.
    After his death and he appeared to his disciples they recognized him in breaking of bread.
    When we break bread, it’s not some breakfast we’re taking, it signifies the death of Christ.
    So that is what we are going to do: the ushers will pass the bread round to you; take your bread and hold it until I give the instructions to break it and and eat it.

    Choir ministrations

    Father we thank you for the body of your son which was broken for us….. We do this tonight in remembrance of him as we break bread. Thank you Father.

    Hebrews 9: 19 – 28 ..
    19For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people,
    20Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you.
    21Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.
    22And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
    23It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
    24For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:
    25Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;
    26For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
    27And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    28So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

    Even the articles of worship were not pure enough for God they had to be purified. The heavenly things are to be purified with better things.
    Through sin death came into the world, but you can make a change today if you can understand that your sins have been remitted.

    Romans 6:14 says that “….sin shall not have dominion over you…”
    The communion is a testimony. The death of Jesus brought us into fellowship with the Father

    Rise from your seat now to the closest stand to you, take that cup drink it and give thanks as you go back to your seat.

    NIGHT OF BLISS SA RECAP
    I welcome you to this beautiful segment, So much to be blessed with.
    Remember that on the 11th of March, we had our program the Night of Bliss in Johannesburg, South Africa.
    I tell you lots and lots of testimonies to show you… We’d show you some highlights of that program right now.

    Night Of Bliss Video Highlights run awhile…..

    The program was a display of divine excellence. This shows us the will and the mind of the Father, it is the mind of the spirit made manifest.
    No wonder the LORD said greater works shall ye do.

    Then the atmosphere was charged with faith! There was so much faith present.

    To those who worked so hard to make the program successful, you were just amazing.
    This is the result of the word and the spirit taking place in a special way………. It happened because of you…

    And for those who gave for the program, you have been thrown into a life of abundance.
    More than 30, 000 alter call cards were present and were not even enough!

    It is the hour for South Africa and the regions beyond. We had reports that 1.5million people watched the program live in Kenya.
    It is not by power, it is not by might, but by my Spirit says the Lord.

    OUR MONTH OF INTERCESSION
    Now, this month of April is our month of Intercession. It means we’re looking beyond ourselves.

    Revelation 1:4-6.
    4John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
    5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
    6And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

    Read the book titled The Seven Spirits of God to understand this more.

    He says he has made us kings and priests. In this month we would carry out our priestly ministry by interceding for others. Remember what you make happen for others, God would make happen for you…

    Ezekiel 22:29-31.
    29The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully.
    30And 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.
    31Therefore 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 sought for a man among them, and found none, therefore destruction came. A man who would make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it.
    Christians in the nations of the world need to know that they can and ought to intercede for their nations, because they are responsible for the destruction or safety of their nation.
    The bible says prayers and intercessions should be made for all men; that we might live peaceably.
    Many countries have become today a dangerous place to be. One of the fruits of such kind of intercessions for your nation is that you might live peaceably.
    This month, we would so pray and send out our angels that we would take the dominion in our cities.
    This is God’s prerequisite for getting the gospel moving in our cities. Us and the Holy Spirit make an unbeatable team.
    We got a lot of testimonies already in the month of march, but we’d like to hear your testimony.

    YOOKOS SESSION
    So much is happening on yookos. When God gives a word the ability comes with the instruction.
    We would have a more permanent structure beginning this month, and yookos is going to start hiring people. This would take us to another level in the yookos application. We also require software developers and engineers to also apply.
    Thank you to those already involved.
    Pastors of the top 3 zones are here with me on set. Remember we are reaching for 10 million followers for pastorchrislive on yookos.

    PRAYERS:
    LORD we thank you and glory your holy name, for this month of April as we stand as priests to pray for the whole world, we know that are prayers are effective.
    We thank you for making us who we are, kings and priests unto you.
    We also thank you for all of our brethren – I declare that the anointing is upon them right now.
    They will prosper where ever they go and in all that they do. That unction to intercede for others will produce in their lives, a huge harvest of blessings for them.
    Father, our testimonies and miracles continue.
    The Lord has given you favor everywhere you go, the LORD has given you the advantage. You shall mount up with wings as eagles. The confidence of God’s spirit is in you, greater is he that is in you.
    The LORD has prepared a table for you, right in the midst of your adversaries! They shall watch you excel! They will not prosper or exert over you, but you have and exercise the dominion in the mighty name of Jesus.
    Have a great month of April.
    God bless you…

    Grace and peace be multiplied unto you always……
    IF YOU’RE BORN AGAIN, THEN YOU ARE A VICTOR IN CHRIST JESUS!
    SO KEEP WINNING AND KEEP SHINNING!
    GOD BLESS YOU.
