JANUARY COMMUNION SERVICE
WITH PASTOR CHRIS
Sunday, 7th January
This is the Year of the Supernatural. That means we must be God conscious, eternal life conscious. There are many Christians who are not conscious of heavenly realities. Become conscious of heavenly realities all the time.
As a child, you blended with everybody whether boy or girl. But as you get older, elderly ones start putting the consciousness of your sex in your mind and how to act and behave. Why were they bringing this into your consciousness even though it’s a natural thing? So that you can act accordingly.
So it is with Christianity. Because you’re born again it doesn’t mean things will naturally happen the way you want or expected, you’ve got to consciously act. You have a superior life inside you and you have to constantly superimpose that life on your physical life. That’s the essence of meditation
We live everyday according to our consciousness. If you’re not conscious that you have money, you live like you don’t. Now that you’re born again, did you know that you’ve received the life and nature of Christ?
Don’t buy it when people say, “we are all humans”. It is an excuse to let humanity dominate their divinity. We are born of divinity.
In the church, just because some things sound religious doesn’t make them true. Many people have worked with church language. You’ve got to study the Word of God and so know it that nothing can take it away from you.
Did you know that the Bible never asks us to ask God for forgiveness?
Did you know that God never made provision for your forgiveness?
One of the most common thing Christians all over the world ask for is forgiveness but there’s no forgiveness.
The teachings of Jesus was based on the old covenant.
1 John 1:9
_”If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”_
To forgive means to pardon. It means the record is there but you’ll not be punished. Men can forgive each other but that’s how far they can go.
The Greek word for the rendering of forgive is to ” take away completely”. That is to completely release from sin.
If you ask God for forgiveness, by what does He forgive you? The blood of Jesus completely purges, washes… The blood of Jesus did much more than forgiveness. So God put away your sins and transgressions, He doesn’t have a record of them. And one way to remind yourself of this fact is through the sacrament of the Communion.
_”And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”_
The word forgiving here means to be “gracious” to one another. Being gracious is higher than forgiveness – where you can speak highly of someone that’s mean to you.
The blood of Jesus washes automatically but incidentally, nobody teaches it.
1 John 1:7
_”But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”_
If our purity before God depends on how quickly I remember my wrongs and pray, then what God was the blood of Jesus?
When we walk in the light of God’s Word, it means we are in agreement with God and the rest takes care of themselves.
You can’t get into the court of law as a person of interest and shout “I plead my case”, you’ll look mad because that’s why you have a lawyer to defend you. How much more with us as Christians, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ who always pleads our case on our behave. That’s why it’s important to break bread (Communion).
For as often as we break bread and drink the cup…Take the Communion very seriously. When you say, “o God, please forgive me” , you think that’s faith but it’s not. In Christ Jesus, God made provision for your sins.
Even though God has forgiven you ahead of time, don’t live bad lives. God wants you inspired in love to lead good lives. And when you walk in this light, there will be no more struggles because God favors you every time.
In this year, take the matters to God in prayers and as you make the declarations in the Name of Jesus, it means its settled. God doesn’t want us struggling for anything and we are not going to struggle. Declare…
_”And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”_
What does this mean?
1. All of nature is responding for your good. The sun, the moon, the stars work for our good, God with us in mind. Things are happening, working to make sure we are okay.
2. Irrespective of the situation, the things of life are working out for my good.
_”…Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”_
As we pray, the Holy Spirit bears us up to pray as we ought to. This is the purest prayer that man isn’t even allowed to utter anything. No matter what happens, when you make this prayer, it can only turn out for your good.
I’m honored of the Lord. I’m glorified! I’ve been glorified already! I’m not praying for it, I’m glorified!
When we speak in tongues, we are under the influence, we are beside ourselves. Don’t ever let anybody stop you from speaking in tongues. When/as you speak in tongues, power is released.
Many Christians don’t know what they have. When you speak in tongues you connect to the Spirit.
_”But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.”_
Do you have the Holy Ghost in you?
_” He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”_
Nothing is too good for you!
This year, you’re going to have the desires of your heart. This year, by free cost you’ll have things done for you!
How can anyone of us lack anything? You will not be in want.
Why should you be among those that will not own a house? As for me and my house, we live in prosperity.
Why are you donating your prosperity to someone’s indebtedness to you? Why have you connected your prosperity to the money that someone’s owing you? Do you want more doors opened for you?
Don’t connect your future to money of the past. God is able to give you much more than what’s owed you. He has a future for you. Apprehend your future so that you can dream again. As long as you hold on to the past, you can have a vision and therefore can’t move.
Stop praying about your debt. Jesus said to forget about the debt that was never returned so that we would have a mentality of constant supply.
My future is before me!
The Father has created for me new channels of opportunities and blessings!
I have new channels of blessings!
