Life has not always been easy, and for everything we seek to achieve then we must be ready to pay the price of determination, consistency and trust in God to take us to our destination.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is the founder and president of Christ Embassy Church (love world).
Born on the 7th of December 1963 he grew up to become a great pastor and healing minister.
In 2011 Forbes estimated Pastor Chris personal to to be 30 million dollars and 50million dollars. But we shouldn’t neglect the days of little begining, everyone has a starting point, remember that the largest dog was once a little puppy.
Here are throwbacks of his pictures..
For young ministers who think they will start today and arrive the next day; the journey takes time of consistency,prayers, fasting and faith in God, don’t give up because everything seems rough and bad. But don’t worry one day your throwback pictures will be shown like this. And the difference between where you started from and where you are today will be clear. Continue believing, continue trusting. God is in your side.
I hope this encourages and stirs you up again, never be discouraged.
There is a popular misconception in our society, a wrong mindset were we blame all our misfortunes, problems and frustrations on the lack of money. You think you’re depressed because you don’t have money? You think the frustration is as a result of the lack of money? then why are the rich also experiencing this issues?…
Your problem is not the lack of money. If money is given to you now, you will still experience more depressions, frustrations and confusions than ever before. Money is good and can solve a lot of issues, but with a lack of purpose and direction of life and destiny as well as the understanding of the call of God upon your life, money will only cause more harm than good.
Appreciate God for where you are, enjoy this times while they last because you might never see them again as God will soon change your story.
money will come but when it comes you will be well informed and enlightened about life and destiny. #TheEdenLife
Mark 3:13-15. Afterwards he went up into the hills and summon certain ones he chose, inviting them to come and join him there and they did.The he selected twelve of them to be his regular companions and to go out to preach and cast out demons.
So many are running to the pulpit shouting I want to preach, others in a hurry to prophecy, many crave the desire to be called papa or mama and want to be addressed by a title (Pastor,Rev,Evang,prophet, and the best of all Apostle).
But do you know that your first calling is not to preach? Do you know that God values a consistent walk with him more than a thousand souls won? Because, outside alignment with him your labour and the structure you build becomes Babylon.
There is something that God values, even more than your preaching and numerous sacrifices. It is your staying with him.
His first purpose for choosing disciples was for them to become regular companions, to become his friends, his helpers , people he could talk to and fellowship with. Preaching is secondary, it is a bye product of the staying and association with Jesus.
Where are you rushing to? Do you think the yardstick of heaven is the same with that of men? Does God measure things and make conclusions from man’s standpoint? No, he doesn’t, his ways and thoughts are different ours. You don’t need to prove a point to anyone, you owe no one no explanation for your spiritual journey, it is personal. You don’t have to show that you’re making progress, the work is more than that. Remain in the secret place, stay there, stay there…
Stay with him, fellowship with him, let him teach you, let him show you the way, let him impart you with his nature and capacity. In study, in prayers, in worship and obedience learn the things of the spirit. And when you come out you will be ready to show yourself approved, a workman who needeth not to be ashamed. Rightly dividing the word of truth. Shalom.
For so many of us who think pastor E.A Adeboye is the founder of the Redeemed Christian church of God, meet Pa Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi the founder of the church of whom Pastor Adeboye was a worthy successor.
Pa Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi is from Ondo state, Nigeria. He was born in the year 1909 into the Akindayomi family, from his childhood days he was different and usually had unusual experiences.
He believed and trusted in God even in the times when the worship of Ogun was rampant, he attached himself with the Anglican church and was baptized in 1927. After a short while his passion made him move to join the cherubim and seraphim church in 1931 and it was in this moments he started hearing the voice of God into full time ministry of which he neglected for seven years because it wasn’t his desire. During this period everything he had and had builded came tumbling down, his business and all other sources of income, he was so greatly in debts and had to depend on God for his everything.
He later accepted the call into ministry when he had a dream were an old man scratched his leg, he woke up with a sore on it. After which God have him scriptures as a proof of his calling, the sore later Healed naturally after some time.
Josiah got married in 1947 and moved to Lagos were he continued worshipping with the cherubim and seraphim church under the imediate successor (prophet ornanuga) of the founder of the church ( prophet Moses Orimolade) with a greater zeal and passion as never before he started a prayer group outside the church which was called Glory of God fellowship, they met at No9, Willoughby street, ebutte metta, Lagos. There were nine members initially but with time the fellowship grew as many heard of the Miracles that emanated from it.
In 1952, Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi left the cherubim and seraphim church, and fully started his ministry, the name of the church was revealed to him in a vision in English language, even though he could neither read nor write he woke up and scribbled what he saw, it was pronounced accurately as the Redeemed Christian church of God. God also gave him other promises of how the church will reach the ends of the world with the message of Christ.
In 1971 God also revealed the identity if his successor as a learned man, and he had no hard time identifying pastor Enoch Adeboye the moment he joined the church in 1973, pastor Enoch was a lecturer of mathematics in the university of Lagos as at that period, and later became an interpreter of the messages of Akindayomi from Yoruba to English language. He was officially ordained a pastor in 1975.
Pastor Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi died in 1980 and pastor Enoch Adeboye took over from him, ever since then the ministry has encountered a tremendous shift world wide.
God is still speaking, and the decrees of the heavenly court are gaining expressions day by day, for every season there are speakings and decrees which sons of God must align to and raise intercession in accordance with.
Today as I arose, the speakings of God gained expression, as I opened my Bible this was Gods decrees in accordance with the book of Daniel.
25.And so God sent those fingers to write this message MENE MENE TEKEL PARSIN
26.this is what it means, MENE means ‘numbered’ God has numbered the days of your reign and they are ended.
27. TEKEL means ‘weighed’ you have been weighed in God’s balances and have failed the test.
28. PARSIN means ‘divided’ your kingdom will be divided and given to the Medes and Persians.
In this season, judgment has been declared upon the rebellious people, upon darkness and evil.
The evil nations who have defied the consecrated things of God, they have suppressed and oppressed the holy people of God, the holy nation and priesthood generation. Their evil has been weighed, the insults, destruction and kios they have caused, it has been measured on the weighing balance and they have been declared guilty. The kingdom of darkness shall be divided against itself. And destruction awaits them.
Rejoice oh sons and daughters of Zion for thy salvation has come, for all you possessions has been restored, for you shall receive all you lost. Evil shall no longer prevail, for every form of darkness shall be destroyed and the strongholds of the wicked broken.
Raise up your praise for salvation has come. Rejoice and be glad.
Therefore raise your voice in supplications ye watchmen and call forth the expression of the speakings of God upon the earth.
GOD has been speaking to you concerning this seasons,. ADD YOUR REVELATIONS IN THE COMMENT SECTION.
They died for what they believe in, stood there ground in times of adversities and persecutions, even when it didn’t seem fair for them to die and expectations are that God will steal them out of the hand of the enemies, yet they died because of their faith which remained unshaken like the Hebrew boys “we know our God can save us, but even if he doesn’t we will not deny him nor bow down to any idol”
But I, the battles I fight are those of my lust, the battle against my sinful nature, and I lay defeated by myself, even though it wasn’t until death, I gave up and lay beaten by my nature.
And so…When the battle is a case of life and death will I stand? I couldn’t defeat myself, how can I lay my life for what I believe?
Therefore, You are what you think you are. For out of the heart flows the issues of life
How do I overcome all this addictions?
I really want to stop drinking and smoking but I can’t. I’ve tried to overcome lust, but it’s grip on me is so strong I just can’t avoid trying to hookup with every lady I meet. Pornography has become my Bible and if I don’t watch it I feel so incomplete….. Even though some of his cases require serious deliverance, There’s an answer in the word of God.
We don’t overcome the flesh by cutting ourselves or slapping our body, we don’t overcome the flesh by tieing it with a rope, No.
Romans 12:2, And do not conform to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may proof what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
We overcome the flesh by Renewing our mind, we renew our mind by prayer and deep Bible studies.
Train your mind by the instrument of the word of God and prayers then your mortal body will naturally obey you.
Does God Brag?… Yes he does, especially about his obedient and upright children.
But what are the consequences of God bragging about you?
Remember, Newton’s third law of motion which states that ” for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. For every action there is a reaction, and so is the case when God brags about you.
Lets study 3 cases:
1.job : God bragged about him and then boom came the trial, he lost his children, cattles and everything he owned in one day including his health, great grief came but job stood his ground. But then after all his later days was greater than the former.
2. Noah: God bragged about his righteousness and then the duty of building the ark came, a tedious work that cost him years, then the gathering of animals and the living in an ark for a year. This was all to save him from a flood which destroyed all mankind except him and his family.
3. Jesus: our third case is Jesus Christ, bragged about by God twice as been his son whom he is well pleased, he died on the cross and wa ups in the grave for three days but God rose him up to a seat of glory and gave him the greatest name.
Assuredly the end of each one God brags about is greatness, even the troubles they pass through can’t be compared to the glory revealed in them at the end.
In conclusion: Bad things happen to those whom God Brag about, not because God caused it, but the devil tries to prove God wrong and do away with his beloved.
The consequence of God bragging about you is big trouble but greater glory.

It’s with great pain and anguish that we accept the death of Evangelist Morris Cerrullo. A great man whom God gave to us as a gift, a great blessing to his generation.
Morris Cerrullo was born to a Jewish/Italian family on the 2nd of October, 1931. He was raised by his parents until his parents died in a tragic automobile accident, and from then on he spent his young ages been transferred from one orphanage to another.
He gave his life to Chris at the age of 14 through the help of a nurse in one of the orphanages. And started practicing Christianity. The persecution he faced In the orphanage caused him to run away.
at the age of 16 of which he started his public ministry, he had an heavenly vision were he saw souls trooping into hell and suffering great torment. This flamed up his zeal and passion to win souls and transform lives.
He became an American pentecostal Evangelist as he travelled around the world to preach, he also hosted the VICTORY TODAY daily television program. Also an Author of over 90books. He was happily married to Theresa Cerrullo.
Can we ever find men to fill up the vacuum this man had filled in the body of Christ, can we find fathers with such capacity to influence the system and cause shiftings.
It wasn’t so long when we lost Evangelist Reinhard Bonnkie, but now, Papa Morris is gone too.
Can we cope with the demands and requirements for heavenly alignment? Our fathers are going but we the sons are we ready?RIP EVANGELIST MORRIS CERRULLO. WE LOVE YOU, AND WE SHALL SEE YOU AGAIN
Moses Orimolade Tunolase is regarded as the founding father of the first African church, the Eternal Sacred Order of the Cherubim and Seraphim , which was established in 1925, this church was born out of the Anglican church community among the Yoruba people in Western Nigeria.
Moses Orimolade Tunolase was born in 1879 into the royal family of Ayibiri in Ondo State of Nigeria. His father was a powerful herbalist and a masquerade.
From the time of his conception it was said by his cousin that Moses tunolase usually communicated with his mother aloud, even while in the belly, he once gave his mum an advice on how to strategically lift a bunch of fire wood alone (NOTE: he was still in the belly). Orimolade could neither stand nor walk until he was well over five years of age, reasons because of the situations surrounding his birth. Initially when his time came to be born, his mother was unable to deliver the child and a native necklace yoruba was worn on her neck to hasten to process. Immediately he was born, he stood up and started walking instantly to the astonishment of everyone. His father being embarrassed by that enchanted him to keep him down. This was believed to be the reason he walked late and also became lame .
His conviction and conversion was at the age of 12 were he had a dream in which he was given a rod, a royal signet and a crown.
He later went into a 7years confinement after which he came out with an ability to preach and read from the Yoruba king James version, and also to partially use his legs.
Orimolade launched out into ministry with great signs and wonder of which it’s mystery still remain unraveled, he would travel to far distances faster than any in his prayer team even though they use fast transport systems, he performed great healings and even once travel out of the country to heal a white man without using an aircraft he got to his destination before the messengers, it was said that he traveled through rocks and sometimes water.
Orimolade’s missionary journey started from his home town were he confronted witches and wizards, destroyed shrines and saved many souls. he traveled to through Benin preaching salvation and turning many to Christ without the intentions of opening a personal church he opened churches for the church missionary society.
Moses Orimolade arrived in Lagos on July 12, 1924 and lodged at Holy Trinity church (Anglican). He immediately started preaching all over Lagos and gained a great reputation among the holy trinity members. He was however ejected by the leaders of the Anglican church which caused many to follow him more.
On the 18th of June 1925 Moses Orimolade was invited to pray for a girl named Abiodun Akinsowon who had been in a trance for 21days, this obviously caused many to panic after the prayers she joined the Aladura Band which orimolade’s team was referred to as, she also came up with the name of the band which was changed to the Seraph Band on 9 September 1925 by Moses Orimolade. The addition of Cherubim to the name was advised by spiritual injunction on 26 March 1926 to reflect the heavenly representation of the Cherubim and Seraphim after a man had a revelation and was told that the seraph had a twin which was the cherub and they can’t be separated . The band was fully formed and functional by the end of 1925. Moses Orimolade reigned as the Sole Founder and Spiritual head of the band from 1925 to 1933.
Moses Orimolade tolunase never got married as he proclaimed he was a eunuch who would have many sons and daughters as the sand in he seashore, many didn’t understand this, but his legacy remains and was carried by the member of the C&S. He died on October 1933. And his body was taken back to his home town and buried.
There are so many tragic things that happen to men on earth, accidents, rejection, disappointments, frustration, poverty, war, lack, sicknesses, death etc. Out of this problems what do you thing is the worst man can experience, is it death? No it isnt.
Job in the Bible is a perfect example of Christian suffering, he lost is children and all his possession in one day even though he did nothing wrong his suffering was great, but even this cannot be compared to the worst predicament that can befall man.
But which of this can be regarded as the most tragic thing that can happen to man since it is not even death.
The answer is HELL FIRE, to be condemned and rejected by God on the last day is the most tragic thing that can happen,.. so set your scores straight with God, follow him and worship him, the sinful lifestyle is enough, the end of the world is near.
