“In your spirit, you are going to be standing lifted up,” Pastor Chris
declares to global congregation.
Joyous celebration met
the announcement of September as ‘the Month of Uplifting’ by the man of God,
Reverend (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome at the just concluded Global Communion Service.
Reading from 1
Chronicles 14:1-2 and Acts 3:1-8, Pastor Chris further expounded on the word of
the month. He highlighted the story of the lame man at the gate of beautiful
who was healed by Peter and John, as recorded in Acts 3:1-8. He remarked that,
the man responded to the apostles, in order to be lifted. Pastor Chris, then admonished
the congregation to always respond to God in this ‘Month of
This month of September is a special one, We are talking about God And what work does he do, all he does is talk. Jesus said I do what I see my father do, what he does is talk.
Why is that important? It’s a sign of Power and
authority. You’ll be amazed what you can do to your life with talking, most
people talk but they say the wrong things, if you Say the right or wrong
things, they’ll come to pass. Your life is confusing because you’re mixing good
and bad water and that can be a problem.
Last month was a very beautiful month. It was the month of beauty. Was your life made beautiful? Think what God has done with you, What glory He has brought into your life. how you see matters. Some have color blindness. They don’t see correctly. In the spirit, learn to see as God sees. Learn to call what you see what God calls them.
Look at this. This is black. All the colors have been absorbed. I was taught that when it looks this way it’s called black. It doesn’t matter what language you use. That’s black. Why do they call it black. You were taught to recognize it as black. This is red. That’s how you were taught.
the spirit, you can be taught to see, to interpret what you see, you look and
call it what God calls it. Some of us have been taught to use our spiritual
senses. You can’t use your sense of touch to interpret color. Same in the
spirit. Your Sensitivity to the spirit of God will help you in judging what you
see and feel and how to respond. As a
child of God born in His image, you’re taught to respond. In training royalties, there are certain
things they are taught, they are taught authority and humility. Every great
person is a humble person. God exalts the humble. He was great by being humble.
Humility is required for God’s promotion.
teach royalties the importance of authority and how to use it. How to respond
and conquer their emotions. Otherwise you can’t live a truly royal life but like
a commoner. God teaches his children like a loyalty because that is what he
thinks about them. Learn how to respond and chose your words, How to control
anger, anger destroys the beauty of loyalty. Royalty never uses anger until the
limit. It’s only against those that must be destroyed. You can’t use it against
your brothers and sisters because they’re not to be destroyed, Don’t be angry
for long. (For the wrath of man worketh not the
righteousness of God. James 1:20)
is all that important because of what God is preparing us for.
And David perceived that the LORD had confirmed him
king over Israel, for his kingdom was lifted up on high, because of his people
Israel. (1 Chronicles 14:2 KJV).
How could a kingdom be lifted? It was exalted. There was honor on the kingdom. Because of his people Israel. His kingdom was lifted on high.
Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being
the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom
they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask
alms of them that entered into the temple; Who seeing Peter and John about to
go into the temple asked an alms. And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with
John, said, Look on us. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive
something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I
have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And
he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and
ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered
with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. And all the
people saw him walking and praising God: And they knew that it was he which sat
for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder
and amazement at that which had happened unto him (Acts 3:1 – 3:10 KJV).
I don’t have the money you’re asking for. What I
have I give you. What he had was not prayer, Jesus gave us power to heal. Not
power to pray. There are people conjuring power to pray instead of power to
heal. Jesus gave them power to heal all manner sickness and disease among the
people. Peter understood that, He didn’t pray but commanded healing. He lifted
the man and he leaped. The man leaped and walked.
The feet and ankle bone received strength, the bible didn’t let us know that the man felt, like the woman with the issue of blood felt in her body that she was healed. It’s an inner feeling. Many just felt something inside. Her faith at work. Remember it was hemorrhage. She felt. There was a feeling inside.
Here the man’s feet and ankle bones received strength. Bones don’t feel. The bones received strength, something got injected there. Oh God. It’s like somebody who has problem in the blood and your blood received life. What I have I give. The man’s faith came into action, The man responded and leaped up and stood.
to respond to God. That’s where the miracle, power and manifestation is.
David perceived that God has confirmed him King. His kingdom was lifted up, there’s a knowing of faith.
There is an uplift by the power of the Holy Spirit. There’s an uplift for the ministry, your church, you as an individual, your family. You’re going to respond to God, In your spirit, you’ll be standing. Leaping up. Worship Him. Give Him praise. Hallelujah. Glory
