ICLC Day 1

ICLC Day 1 with Pastor Chris. ————————I want to welcome you all from around the world. It is our first International Cell Leaders Conference, and we also have those joining us from our churches and viewing centers via the internet from across the globe.Starting tonight, through tomorrow morning and evening; and then through saturday, we’d be learning God’s word that would equip us and launch us into another level of leadership and ministry. These meetings will change you forever, that I can assure you.. Jesus Christ came to this world and died almost two thousand years ago, and yet many still don’t know about him. Some have only heard stories about him; some people think it was just a story – about Jesus death, burial and ressurection. Oh! It was no story! The first question you ask is, who is Jesus? Who is He. He is the Son of God, but how is Jesus God’s Son? And who is God? The Bible says God is a Spirit. The One who pre-existed the
beginning, He was there before all creation! Anyone who pre-existed the begining of all creation must be God! He’s got to be! The Bible says in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. He’s called the self existent One. This all creating God declared Jesus to be His son by the resurrection from the dead. He proved and verified the life and ministry of Jesus to everyone. He raised Him from the dead. His death and ressurection were no secret in His day. He walked the streets after His ressurection and people saw him.No one ever came out of death by himself, having been buried. If Jesus were dead, His name would have no power, but he said those who believe in Him shall cast out devils in His name, shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover, they shall speak in new tongues, if they take any deadly drink it shall not hurt them. And all of these have been true till today. The consistency in the character of believers for generations is
another prove that Jesus must be God. I find it difficult not to believe in him. Anyone would be mischievous to think that the claims about Jesus were fabrications. Therefore we must tell the untold,we must reach the unreached. Thank God for the testimonies in our lives, but it is not enough to experience this glorious life without the motivation to share it with others, therefore we must share it with them. He has given us his life, but what have you given in return? Your life as well is what He expects from you and nothing less. That is why he says to take up your cross and follow him. That means to die on it, to die to your self – to your own concerns. He doesn’t like selfishness. That is why He says for us to cast our cares upon Him for He cares.Jesus says: I am the way the truth and the life. He is the origin of life, the essence of living is derived from Him. The bible says by him all things consist. Jesus is seated on the throne of his Father and
the Father is seated inside Him. If you stand before the throne of God, you would see Jesus seated on it and not the Father. He is the son of God, but co-equal with God. We are leaders of other people who have given their hearts to Christ, isn’t it wonderful? Whether you have a cell of five members, twenty five members or a hundred members, we all are important.Each one of us is important to God. God loves you personally. Say this with me: God loves me personally, He loves me specially. He knows my name, He knows my address, He knows everything about me. That’s because I’m important. God wants you to think and talk like that. When you think like that you would have answers for important issues. Only VIPs discuss important issues. Say: ”I’m a VIP. I’m serious minded. I think like an important person, I think important thoughts, I think important matters, kingdom matters.” My first cell meeting was when I was 11yrs old, and I held my 1st crusade at 15.I
went preaching the Gospel from house to house, from street to street. I felt and still do today, that the whole world has got to hear it. I preached to the sick in the hospitals, I preached when it was easy and when it was difficult. So I said to you, leading God’s people whether many or few is so important to God; it is not something to be taken lightly. Think about the potentials in us, how many more people we can all reach together. The saints are given the work of the ministry, and the different ministries such as that of the pastors and apostles are meant for strengthening the saints to do that work given to them. Each one of us has that ministry. I can help a cell leader become more effective with his ministry. That is because, when Jesus saves you, He makes you become his partner in saving others as well. We are His witnesses to the world. The principle is that we are disciples so as to disciple others. I can’t keep the message to myself, I have
got to share it with someone else. We’ve got be there to help build their faith – to shape their path. Growing up as a young christian, there were those God put in my way to help build my faith, to help me pray. We’ve got to do the same for others as well. Over the years I’ve been tremedously blessed by tracts, tapes, books and several other materials from different ministers. How could I have all that and then be quiet? So I got to do the same for others. You are not blessed for receiving from others or for God blessing you. No. You are blessed for what you put into the kingdom and what you put into others. But I want to be able to say before the Master; Lord, for all that I received, here’s what I did with it. And then He says well done thou good and faithful servant. We shouldn’t live our lives all for nothing, but live a life that is based on fulfilling the desires of the Lord. And so with that, again I welcome Ɣ☺u to this International Cell
Leaders conference. Would you thank him now? Amen. Open your mouth and pray……..

Welcome to this special program, this special month of June, one in which we’d be engaging together in several spiritual activities.

PASTORCHRISLIVE SESSION:

1. Is it wrong to seek spiritual healing or deliverance from a man of God apart from your pastor?
It is dangerous to do so especially if you are looking at this from the standpoint of an inability of your pastor, so because you may just go in the wrong direction.
Get the matter to your pastor first to counsel you, because you might not have the spiritual maturity to make that decision by yourself. He may then tell that he knows another minister who is gifted in a such and such who may be able to help you. 

2. The difference between dreams, visions, and revelations.
A dream is a series of emotional activities in your sleep. A dream from God is one based on His word.
I dealt extensively on dreams on our website: pastorchrisonline.org.
Dreams or visions could also be revelations.
Visions have different degrees:
-inner visions,
-outer visions or,
-open visions..

3. Are there unconditional prophecies? Can they be changed?  
They are those that have to do with God’s own time-table.
But every personal prophecy can be changed. If you’re not comfortable about it you can change it, because he gave us the right to.
E.g. Hezekiah. God sent the prophet to instruct him to put his house in order because he was going to die! A death sentence was passed on by God! But the bible says he turned his face toward the and prayed. He told God that only the living can praise Him and that the dead cannot. Of what good was he to God dead? He asked. The Lord heard his prayers and added more years unto Hezekiah’s life.
He gave us the right to negotiate with Him on personal prophesies that don’t favour us and change them..

4. Does luck exist? Should Christians believe in it?
 
Empathic no. It depicts the arena of chance, and it is of the devil because it denies you the opportunity of walking by faith: you accept whatever happens to as good luck or bad luck. But every child of God must walk by faith! Not in the arena of luck. Luck came from Lucifer. God wants us blessed and not walk in luck. We must learn to take charge of our lives through the word of God and by faith, rather than depend on luck.

PRAYER NETWORK ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS:

A year ago God asked me to lead His children in prayers; by sending out prayer points through the internet for them to pray. I thought it would be only for that month. But by the of that month God asked us to continue, we did and it was an amazing experience.
We started out on Twitter initially, then we chose six months later to start out our own social networking site: Yookos. It has been a most tremendous experience with well over two million followers in just 3months.
It is undergoing expansion right now to accommodate more usage.
Watch out also for Yookos 2 as well.
So many thanks to so many of you who have worked so tirelessly in the past one year.
The whole month of June is declared our month of celebration. We would share lots and lots of testimonies at this anniversary time.

MESSAGE FOR THE MONTH OF JUNE.

What is the Lord saying unto us in this month?

Luke 22:41-43.
41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” 43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.

1Kings 19:7-8
7 And the angel of the LORD came back the second time, and touched him, and said, “Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for you.” 8 So he arose, and ate and drank; and he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights as far as Horeb, the mountain of God.

Elijah was going somewhere, even though he was running from Jezebel, he was being lead by God. Sinai is one of the summits of Horeb, a mountainous expanse of land.

Revelations 3:2.
Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God.

This month of June is a month of Strengthening.  
The 1st scripture shows the Lord Jesus being strengthened after He had prayed: it was by the Holy Spirit.  The food Elijah fed on in 1 kings is the word of God.
Like Jesus, when we pray we shall also be strengthened. And this is exactly what we require; to be strengthened by God.

But then we also bear the responsibility keeping ourselves in the strength of God all the time. 
Whatever talents and gifts of God in your life, you need to strengthen them if they have become weak. You need to strengthen yourself in prayer, strengthen yourself in the study of God’s word, strengthen yourself in evangelism and soul-winning. Hallelujah.
Whatever area of your life that’s been weakened by negligence it is time for you to strengthen it now.
As we get strengthened by God’s word and the Spirit of God, it is our responsibility to strengthen those weakened areas of our lives and ministry.

Pray now that you’re going to be strengthened in various areas of your life: every time you study His word, every time you pray. Pray now. Hallelujah.

THE COMMUNION:

At this time you get up from where you are seated and approach the table nearest to you where the bread is, pick yours and hold it until I give the instructions.

1 Corinthians 11: 23-24.
23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.

Go ahead and break it now. 

25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying,
“This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”  26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

We thank you Father for the blood of your Son Jesus that was shed for us for the remission of sins. We thank you for the forgiveness of sins in that we have in that blood.

You will proceed to the stand closest to you, take that cup, drink it and return to your seat.

That cup is a point of contact, every sickness, disease and infirmity is washed away.
It is our oneness with the Lord, every barrier against you is shattered, nothing can limit you, nothing can withstand you.

Proceed now and take the cup.
