Message from Pastor Chris during the Global Communion Service – February 2019, Month of Walking in the Light
Titus 1:1-3KJV:Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness; 2 KJV:In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; 3 KJV:But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
From Titus 1, we can see that God has fulfilled this promise. He has manifested His Word.
Not many understands this life that God has given us. Some don’t even realize that He has given us this life. They think it’s a promise.
The question is what is eternal life. I explained this in good detail in the Higher Life Conference. If you have been listening to our messages, you would have been hearing me talk about this life. The message of eternal life is something that the church needs to understand and walk in. I don’t want us to miss God’s timing. Everything is pointing to the fact that Jesus is coming back very soon. It’s not enough to believe that He is coming. You need to be expecting it. You cannot believe you have eternal life, you must know it.
Look at how John puts it 1 John 5: 13NIV :I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
Your life here on earth determines the kind of life you will live in the age to come. He left us here to know how we will live His Word.
There are people who are persecuting other Christians even to the point of death and they claim that God sent them. It’s no surprising because the Word has told us that it will happen.
Question and Answer Segment.
Q. Why did John say that no one has even seen God even when John himself walked with Jesus?
A. John was saying here that no man has even seen God in His glory. Jesus Himself said it. He told his disciples that he has so many things to show them but they cannot receive it. This is because the un-recreated man cannot receive God.
Your optical eyes are not designed to see God. That’s why He told Moses that he will show him his hind part because if Moses saw God’s glory, he will be blinded.
Q. Pastor, I borrowed a brother in Church some money and he has refused to pay me this money, even though I have reported to the pastor.
A. When you take a matter to your pastor, don’t prejudge how the matter should be settled. You will have to go back to your pastor.
Let’s see how Jesus handled one of these matters.
Luke 12:13-15 NKJV
13 Then one from the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” 14 But He said to him, “Man, who made Me a judge or an arbitrator over you?” 15 And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.
Why are you in need of this money? Your problem is spiritual. Once you release money, don’t look at that person for the return. God is your source.
I am not justifying the actions of the one who the money was given. He is in a very terrible state. That someone trusted you that much and you acted the way you did is terrible.
You see that’s why you need to speak to your pastor before you give someone money for investment. He probably has done same to some others.

Message for The Month.
This is the month of February, I want to share with you a few things the Lord is bringing to my spirit.
1 John 1:7 KJV:
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.
This is the message that the Lord is bringing to us in this month of February. Go to Isaiah 2:5 KJV: O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.
You can see that John was sharing a familiar message with a new light. Notice Psalm 119:130 KJV:The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
God’s Word inside you will make you avoid making king-size mistakes. All mistakes are not the same. Nations have gone to war because somebody made a mistake.
Did they know when they were making the mistake? A lot of times, no. They weren’t listening to God.
The beginning of the year and the ending of the year are the times we have high demonic manifestations. This is the time that people make decisions that has to do with their lives. They want to change their house, they want to change job, they want to choose who to marry. They want to change the children school.
This is why I tell people, pray in the spirit and study the word. Diligently study the word.
Proverbs 22:28 (KJV)
28 Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.
Some families are cultureless! No training. Then they think they have liberty. But that is not liberty but trouble. Jesus was brought up in Nazareth! Some people can tell you, in my family, we don’t do this. This means the person was brought up in a certain way. How are you brought up. They are things we are not brought up to do. Some people go out and come in anytime that want and no one cares. Too bad.
Luke 4:16 (KJV)
16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
We have to be very careful in our lives. The Spirit of God leads us. God did not lead us into individual prophecy that can mislead other people. Prophecies have to be judged. Even the interpretation as well.
2 Peter 1:20 (KJV)
20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
The Lord will not come until many fall away! As we win souls around the world, all kinds of people come into the church and some even get to leadership. But how do u know the ones that are true? They will show up in their behaviour as they grow either as a goat or as a sheep. Goats are very stubborn and do not follow the leader and are always resistant.
Some of the biggest troubles in the church are caused by those who do not say much. So many people esteem them and may believe when they seem to prophecy.
Psalms 119:133 (KJV)
133 Order my steps in thy word:
and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
Psalms 119:105 (KJV)
105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Welcome to the month of WALKING IN THE LIGHT AS HE IS IN THE LIGHT.
When His words comes, light comes. Truth produces light.
Isaiah 60:1 (KJV)
1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come,
and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
I have light about my work, health, my finances, my businesses.
Isaiah 60:2 (KJV)
2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
Light has come now for every area of your light that needs the light. Every area where you thought you were weak, light has come now.
Isaiah 60:19 (KJV)
19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
We will no longer be walking by our senses anymore! Hallelujahhhh!!! The word of God is unfailingly!
Isaiah 60:19 (AMPC)
19 The sun shall no more be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you, but the Lord shall be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory and your beauty.
The Lord will beautify you. The Lord is my glory and my beauty! Hallelujahhhh
Isaiah 60:20-22 (KJV)
20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. 21 Thy people also shall be all righteous:
they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. 22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time.
