Jesus of Nazareth- The Only True God ( by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome)

SATURDAY 25. DECEMBER. 2021
JESUS OF NAZARETH— THE ONLY TRUE GOD 
And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God (John 6:69).          
When Jesus walked the streets of Galilee, Capernaum, Jerusalem, many didn’t quite give attention to who He really was. Today is Christmas—the celebration of the birth of Jesus. Yet, the most that some know about Him is that He was born of a virgin, while others see Him as one of the greatest miracle workers to ever grace Israel. But His life was more than miraculous.
When Jesus walked the earth, He was God in the flesh; all of divinity was tabernacled in Him. He was the living body of the Almighty God. He was God alive, walking and talking in a man’s body. Read what Colossians 1:19 AMPC says about Him: “For it has pleased [the Father] that all the divine fullness (the sum total of the divine perfection, powers, and attributes) should dwell in Him permanently.”
This should help you understand John’s statement in John 1:14: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” Jesus was the glory of God manifested to us. Hebrews 1:3 AMPC says, “He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power….”
Jesus is the love of God manifested to us. He showed us a good example by loving everyone unconditionally, including His accusers. He loved and offered His life for us as a sacrifice for our sins: “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour” (Ephesians 5:1-2).
Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” These aren’t the attributes or works of a religious leader. No one in history loves, or could ever love like Jesus. He was God’s light, of whom John the Baptist bore witness, so that all men through Him might believe. John 1:9 says of Jesus: “That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.” Amazing reality!
No wonder He’s celebrated, honoured and adored in heaven and in the earth. He has the greatest honour even in hell. He’s the greatest of all. The only one who could save man to the uttermost, and make the divine life available and possible for all men to receive: Jesus of Nazareth—the only true God!
CONFESSION 
Blessed Jesus, how great and glorious you are! Saviour of the world, joy of heaven and hope of all mankind! Thank you for giving me eternal life; thank you for making me the living house of the living God, manifesting your glory and righteousness in, and through me everywhere. You’re the only wise and true God; your Name be praised and adored now and forever. Amen.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES (by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome)


WEDNESDAY 3RD OCTOBER.
VICTORY IN HIS NAME
To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God (Revelation 2:7).          
In the verse above, like several other portions of the Scriptures, we find the Lord constantly prompting us to overcome. In a reiterative pattern, He announced in Revelation 2:11, “…He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.” This is Jesus talking, and in Revelation 3:12, He repeated, “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God….”
Jesus already overcame the world and when He did, we were in Him. His victory was for us. In John 16:33, He said, “…be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” In Him, we defeated Satan and all the demons of hell, but we’re required to maintain our victory; that’s our role. That’s the fight of faith.
The Lord knows that the adversary would try to fight us with the systems of this world. But He charged us to resist him, steadfast in the faith. This is what the fight of faith is about and He didn’t leave us without the weapon for the fight. When David confronted Goliath, he said, “…Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts…” (1 Samuel 17:45). That was his weapon: The Name of the LORD of hosts! With that Name, he overcame the Philistines. Hallelujah!
That’s our weapon today. Jesus said, “…In my name shall they cast out devils…” (Mark 16:17). That means, in His Name, you’ll rule over, control, and dispel demons. Then He said we should use His Name in all circumstances: “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus…” (Colossians 3:17). That’s the victory!
As you go to your office, school, place of work or business today, go in the Name of Jesus. That means no matter what’s waiting for you there, you already have the victory; you’ll overpower it in the Name of Jesus! Others may be complaining about their dwindling business fortunes, but your testimony is different. Why? You’re running your businesses in the Name of Jesus.
The Bible says, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world…” (1 John 5:4). You’ve overcome the world with its hatred, death, deception, falsehood and falsities, economies and economics—in His Name. Glory to God!
CONFESSIONI’m born of God; therefore, I’ve overcome the world and its hatred, unbelief, wickedness, deceptions, economies and economics, death, falsehood and falsities. I’m victorious forever in the Name of Jesus! Hallelujah!

O Give Thanks  ( by Fenny West)

 

 

O Give thanks unto the Lord 

Come before Him with singing

The Lord is good in all His ways

O lift up your gates and let Him come in

Bring to Him sacrifices of honour, worship

Everything that has breath praise the Lord 

Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice. 

 

 

1 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Ps107:1

This Is My King(4) (by Fenny West)

This Is My King(4)

This is my King: Jesus Christ-the Anointed One, whose anointing breaks every yoke of bondage. He sets the captives free and lifts burdens. He heals the broken-hearted. He heals every disease. He brings light to those who sit in darkness, brings good news to those who mourn. He brings recovery of sight to those who are physically or spiritually blind. He is the perfect sacrifice offered once and for all. He is the sinless Son of God, poured out that we might have fullness and become the righteousness of God. He upholds all things by the Word of His power. He disarmed principalities and powers and made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them even through the cross. He died and rose again, triumphant, declaring “Behold, I Am He that was dead but I am now alive and alive forevermore. And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”

He is the Saviour of the World. All power in heaven and on earth is given to Him and He reigns over all. He is more than a conqueror. He has overcome the world and is seated at the right hand of the Father interceding for you and I. Look not for the living among the dead. He has risen, just like He said. He is now the Head of the Church, our Attorney.

He said. “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen….

This Is My King(3) by Fenny West

This Is My King(3)

He is a God of love, who loves with an everlasting love. He is love personified. As high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love. He so loved the whole world that He gave Himself as an offering for sinful man. God came to man that man may come to God.

 He uses people as channels of blessing but He is the Source that is inexhaustible, the Breadbasket, the River of Life that never runs dry. He is the Fountain of peace, the God of All Comfort, the Preeminent One; in Him all things hold together- the First Born from the dead. He is the Advocate, the Intercessor, pre-existent, All-sufficient- God all by Himself, a Friend that sticks closer than a brother, a Friend to the end, Emmanuel- God with us. He is the stone that the builders rejected that has now become the Chief Corner Stone…

 

 

This Is My King(2)

This is my King(2)

He is infinitely wise- the only wise God. His wisdom no one can fathom. He knows the end from the beginning, declares the end from the beginning. He is the Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, long-suffering and abundant in goodness and in truth. He is integrity and faithfulness personified. He is matchless in His glory, the Unchanging Changer- Unchanging but changes things. With Him all things are possible. He turns hopeless situations around. Against all natural hope He gives supernatural hope. He speaks and it is done. He commands and it stands fast. He has the last word. He is head over all principalities and powers. He is sovereign and reigns over all. At His Name demons tremble; at His Name everything bows- things in heaven, things on the earth and things underneath the earth. He changes the decrees of kings. He sets up kingdoms and pulls them down at will. He measures the earth with the span of his hand and holds the waters in the hollow of His hand. He weighs the mountains on His scales. No one gives Him counsel…
