The Global Communion Service for August 2017 was hosted at LoveWorldUSA Networks, a new addition to the BLW Nation’s bouquet of networks. LoveWorldUSA was launched on July 1st, bringing the presence and power of the Holy Spirit into the homes of millions throughout the United States. Through a strategic partnership between the man of God, Rev. (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome, and renowned healing evangelist, Pastor Benny Hinn, many are being exposed to an entirely new experience of Christian television.
Before declaring the eagerly anticipated word of the Spirit for August 2017 — ‘the Month of the Shining Light‘ — the man of God, Rev. (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome, read Matthew 5:16:
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
The month of July was declared ‘the Month of Expansion‘, and so it was, with remarkable testimonies from the ‘Vision 400’ evangelical mandate featured on LoveWorld News. Therefore, the entire BLW nation, along with new sole won, gathered in various locations all over the world, connected to the much-anticipated August 2017 edition of the Global Communion Service with Pastor Chris.
The global congregation spent time to worship the Lord, led by LMAM ministers; everyone also thanked God in prayers for ‘the Month of Expansion‘, interceding for students at the Healing School Summer Session. The highly esteemed CEO of the BLW Nation, Pastor Deola Phillips, welcomed participants from around the world, highlighting several exploits and significant attainments from the month of July.
The BLW President, Rev. (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome, was joined by a BLW Assistant Secretary-General, Pastor Karen Victor, and the CEO, Pastor Deola Phillips, further expounding on the flourishing recorded in the past month, through ‘Vision 400′. Special clips from the International School of Ministry Ministers’ Network Conference and other programs were played for the inspiration of the brethren.
“Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord,”
In the Q&A session of the PastorChrisLive segment, a highly sought after portion of the Global Communion Service, supplying God’s wisdom to questions in the hearts of many, the Man of God answered several questions, one of which was to know from Isaiah 43:16, if God still makes a way for His children today? In response to this question, the man of God, Pastor Chris, called to remembrance John 14:6, where the Lord Jesus declares unequivocally that He is “the way, the truth and the life.” Picking up from this point, Pastor Chris said “the way has come; God is not making another way.” Further qualifying his statement, the man of God admonished the congregation, saying “don’t quote Old Testament blessings without the light of the New Testament.”
In addition, Jacob from Ghana asked if one who has not been baptized in water can take the communion, to which Pastor Deola and Pastor Karen responded with an emphatic yes. However, both panelists and the man of God, Pastor Chris, specially admonished Jacob and anyone else in a similar situation to get baptized quickly, due to the importance of the baptismal sacrament in the scriptures.
In announcing the Word for the Month, Pastor Chris went on to read Isaiah 60:2 and Romans 12:10-11, shedding more light on this new phase of the operation of the Spirit through us. “Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord,” the latter scripture reads in the Amplified version, indicating a clear desire of the Spirit for each citizen of the BLW Nation.
“Shine by actions,” the man of God instructed the congregation through the Spirit, emphasizing the portion of the theme scripture, Matthew 5:16, “that they may see your good works.” Pastor also spotlighted the importance of praying in the Spirit this month, as a means to constantly initiate an outshining of the glory like Jesus experienced in Luke 9:28-29.
“If He is Lord of your life, you’ve got to listen to Him,” Pastor Chris says about living for God.
During the earlier segment, another question from Jonathan in Ghana inquired about living for God, after sharing his prior struggle in executing true repentance toward God. Full of compassion, Pastor Chris carefully explained, for the benefit of Jonathan and countless many around the world, how to live for God. “When you receive Christ Jesus, you don’t just receive Him as your Savior; He becomes Lord of your life,” the man of God began.
Pastor Chris, reading from Romans 12:1-2, continued thus: “What God wants you to do is to present yourself as a living sacrifice. That’s what it means when you say Jesus Christ is Lord of your life. He’s got something to say about your decisions…about your thoughts and your thinking process.” The man of God shared four powerful scriptures for anyone having difficulty living for Jesus to meditate upon, before issuing a reminder to congregants that they are no longer under the bondage of sin, once born again.
