GOD GAVE ME MANY SCHOLARSHIPS

Image
EXCERPT OF AN INTERVIEW WITH OUR SISTER WHO GOD GAVE SCHOLARSHIPS 

Shortly after her testimony on the podium, the Online Crew had a little chat with our sister, Chioma Okoh. The following ensued;


ONLINE CREW: Please what's your name?
RESPONSE: My name is Sis Chioma Okoh.

ONLINE CREW: When did you join Chosen?

RESPONSE: I joined Chosen in the year 2002.

ONLINE CREW: Please, can you share  your testimony with us?


RESPONSE: I left secondary school in the year 2014 and wrote G. C. E and WAEC exams without success. I didn't pass all the subjects.
  In the year 2016, I registered for waec again. This is because, at that time, my father wanted me to apply to Universities outside the country and they required WAEC results in one sitting.

 Before the release of this result on a certain day,  I had an encounter with the G.O in my dream. In the dream, he said to me "Heaven would rejoice over your success and whether hell likes it or not, you are a winner".
That same week,  the …

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…CHOOSE LIFE!

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Sunday July 30th, 2017. Read: Deuteronomy 30: 15-19
THEME: CHOOSE LIFE!
MEMORIZE: For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16)
MESSAGE: One gift that God has bequeathed upon mankind is the freedom of choice. God does not compel anybody to do anything by force. Even when He knows that your choice may have an adverse consequence, He will not interfere with your free will. You are the architect of your destiny. You alone determine your fate.
In His mercy however, God has not left us without direction. He has laid out several guidelines and laws for us to follow so that we will not end up in sudden destruction or hell fire. He has given us commandments that if we follow, will help us make the right decisions. He has also through His Word and prophets made known to us His will and mind so that we can know what He wants us to do. He also has made known…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL..THEME: DO NOT GO BACK TO EGYPT

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: Saturday July 29th, 2017. TEXT: Numbers 14: 1-4 THEME: DO NOT GO BACK TO EGYPT MEMORIZE: For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world... " (2 Timothy 4:10a)
MESSAGE: 
Imagine a prisoner who has been granted pardon and has had his sentence graciously cut short and released from prison. He should be overjoyed and if a sensible creature, ensure that he never does anything again that will lead him back into captivity. 
One will not expect such a person to willingly go back to a life of crime or choose to willingly go to prison. To go back to prison after such a lucky break would be foolish. But this is exactly what happens when a person who has experienced a new life in Christ decides to backslide. He is tacitly going back into captivity. This might sound strange but the fact is that many people that become born again find it hard to forget their past life. They still long for the so called 'pleasures' they left behind. 
They are no…

THE LORD'S CHOSEN EDO STATE EMPOWERED 31 MEMBERS WITH CASH GIFTS 


As a mark of Jubilee Celebration which comes up every July, The Lord's Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries, Edo State Chapter empowered 31 of her members with cash gifts.


On Sunday, July 23rd, 2017, 31 needy brethren gathered together at the Edo State Headquarters of The Lord's Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries, for one of the largest philanthropic undertaking of the Church.  These persons were recognized and given cash gifts.  By so doing, philanthropy, an invaluable attribute of Christ was epitomized in her.



The importance of this virtue in the Christendom cannot be overemphasized. The inauguration of the seven deacons in Acts of the Apostles has it as the live-wire. The benefits of philanthropy can  be described using economic and Spiritual analogies.


THAT GOD THAT MAKE SINNERS SAINTS IS THE ONLY TRUE GOD

THAT GOD THAT MAKE SINNERS SAINTS  IS THE ONLY TRUE GOD



"Hehehehe! And who says you cannot be beautiful and yet remain a beautiful God chaser"

The above are the words of our beloved sister, Rita who was once enslaved in the world but now a free woman in Christ, shinning in God's glory.



Here is Rita saying you can be young, beautiful, attractive, successful and still live a decent, godly and bold life for Christ.
I'm not ashamed of Christ neither am I ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes. Rom 1:16. For what shall it profit me if I gain the whole world and I loose my soul in hell. Mark 8 vs 36
The very first day I said NO to sin and Satan. That was the very first day I experienced true peace, joy, breakthrough and success and ever since then, it has never been otherwise. Mat 6:33. Yes it works
A lot of beautiful things has happened in my life, that's why my smile keeps increasing by the day.

HOW I RECEIVED MY WONDERFUL MIRACLE THROUGH FACEBOOK LIVE STREAMING


This is the testimony of our beloved sister Dubem Nathaniel. The ways of our God is indeed past finding out. People took her confession with levity. To them, this one is making a fool of herself but God proved them wrong. She followed the live streaming of The Wonder Working God Crusade that was concluded yesterday in Lagos, Nigeria and God in a space of few hours corrected an error that was behind human solution. She is now basking in praise.

QUAKING NEWS FROM THE WONDER WORKING GOD CRUSADE


God is indeed enacting His wonders in greater proportion in the ongoing crusade. Ears are indeed tingling at His wonders. Photo speaks of 2 children of same parents who were enslaved in the prison of deafness and dumbness from birth. Their family is one of the families that The Wonder Working God liberated. The alien behind their ordeal was disgraced, humiliated and sent packing. They can now hear and speak to the glory of God.

TESTIMONY TRAIL FROM THE WONDER WORKING GOD CRUSADE 
(9 YEARS MADNESS ABDICATED IN CHOSEN) 


Bro Nnadi Martin who joined Chosen in 2015 and worships with a Chosen branch at Obolloafor in Nsukka, Enugu State is so appreciative of this Great God for breaking the yoke of nine years insanity in his life. His testimony is a living proof that God still answers prayer and that there's no ugly situation He can't turn around for good.

THE POWER IN THE LORD'S CHOSEN EXPLAINED...


I was looking at the message of yesterday (FROM CHOSEN TO HEAVEN) and the mystery behind "The Lord's Chosen Church" was unfolded to me.

Before now, these have been the questions I usually ask especially in my quiet time "Why The Lord's Chosen?... Why is it the only Church that if one is in danger and the person declares him/herself as "a Chosen" Heaven will intervene immediately? Does it mean that God did not call other churches? So many questions" But it just got clearer to me through yesterday's message.


THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: FEAR HIM WHO CAN KILL BOTH BODY & SOUL

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: Tuesday, July 11th, 2017. TEXT: Luke 12:4-5 THEME: FEAR HIM WHO CAN KILL BOTH BODY & SOUL MEMORIZE: "And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee' but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul•" (Deuteronomy 10:12)
MESSAGE: 
Many people fear man more than God, They worry about what their fellow man thinks about them more than what God thinks about them. They are more worried about keeping up appearances so that men can think highly of them at the expense of doing God's will. They keep appointments with men in a timely manner but come late to their appointment with the Creator of the Universe. They bow before earthly kings who are in power today but removed tomorrow, but approach the throne of the King of Kings who is Everlasting with levity. What lack of wisdom! Jesus warns us in today's passage that the only one we s…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: Monday July 10th, 2017. TEXT: 2 Chronicles 16:7-9 THEME: DO YOU HAVE A 'PLAN B'? MEMORIZE: "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. " (Proverbs 3 :5)
The God we serve is Almighty, all Powerful, all knowing, ever Present and Everlasting. He therefore will not share His glory with anyone or anything. When God works, He leaves no one in doubt that it is only He that can do such thing. He raises the dead, heals terminal diseases, grants conception to the barren and women that have reached menopause, turns a dirty poor individual to a billionaire overnight, etc. All the wonders we have read about Him in the Bible days are taking place before our very eyes here in The Lord's Chosen. His power is present in every meeting to heal and deliver. We have seen countless number of dumbfounding testimonies of His wonderful works in the midst of the Chosen.
Yet, many people have not experienced His touc…

MINISTER: PASTOR LAZARUS MUOKA


THEME: THAT WE MAY EXPERIENCE HIS WONDERS 


TEXT: Amos 4:12, Matthew 3:3, Luke 3:4 - 8

As the Wonder Working God crusade is fast approaching, it has become important to preach this message. Knowing our vision, we should invite people to this program because God is set to do wonders in our midst, come Saturday and Sunday next week.
As God is set to move mightily amongst us in this program, we should know what to do to experience His wonders. (Exodus 19:10 -16). The point is that Moses told the people what to do and they did it and they saw the wonders of God.


JUDGEMENT DAY BY YOUTH CHOIR (MINISTRATION IN TODAY'S COMBINED SUNDAY SERVIC)

YOUTH'S CHOIR MINISTRATION IN TODAY'S COMBINED SUNDAY SERVICE



SONG TITLE: JUDGEMENT DAY

CHORUS:
Many will be found right on that day.
Many will be found wrong on that day.
Brethren, where will you be,
at the right side or the left?
Had I known, Oh had I known, oh!
That's what many will say.
When Christ will come is very short.
Amend your ways!

SOLO 1:
I had a dream about the end of time,
It made me cry so hard.
I saw many nations at the judgement throne.
Hoping maybe they will make it through,
but the Saviour sadly shook his head,
and these words I heard him say,
sorry I never knew you, then
depart from me.



SOLO 2:
I saw this man right at the judgment throne,
he was standing at Gods left hand side,
he wanted riches while he was on earth,
he never loved to hear the word of God,
but when his time on earth was through,
he slept one night and never woke again,
he pleaded for a second chance,
but it was too late.


THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: GOD'S MERCY & COMPASSION WILL SPEAK FOR YOU

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: Sunday July 9th, 2017. TEXT: Jonah Chapter 3 THEME: GOD'S MERCY & COMPASSION WILL SPEAK FOR YOU MEMORIZE: "It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassion fail not. " (Lamentations 3:22)
MESSAGE:
Our God is a merciful, compassionate, and loving Father. No one can love the way He does. He gave us His most cherished possession i.e. His Son, Jesus Christ, so that we will not receive the punishment that we so rightly deserved. He does not delight in a sinner's death but desires that we repent. Indeed He is merciful. Even when we deserve punishment, if we truly repent, He will rescind His decision and turn away His wrath.
In our reading today, we are told of the story of the city Nineveh which engaged in great wickedness that God was determined to overthrow the whole city. But in His mercy, He first sent Jonah to warn them of the impending doom. Jonah however did not want to go because he knew that God …

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING CAN BREAK CAPTIVITY

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: Saturday, July 8th, 2017. TEXT: Chronicles 20:21-26 THEME: PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING CAN BREAK CAPTIVITY MEMORIZE: "I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies (Psalm 18:3)
MESSAGE:
While some yokes and bondage need prayer and fasting before they can be broken, others will give way when we engage in heartfelt praise and thanksgiving. We can see this scenario play out in today's passage where Jehoshaphat commanded the people of Israel to sing praises and God arose and fought the battle for them and delivered them from their enemies. God values praise and thanksgiving because He is worthy of it. He has done so many good things for us even without our asking. Every night the devil and his agents hide under the cover of the darkness to manipulate destinies but God protects His own and we wake up every morning not knowing the battles that have been fought on our behalf. We have food to eat, clothes to …

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: IT'S TIME TO PUT CHILDISH THINGS AWAY

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: Friday July 7th, 2017. TEXT: Hebrews 5: 11-14 THEME: IT'S TIME TO PUT CHILDISH THINGS AWAY MEMORIZE: "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." (1 Corinthians 13:11)
MESSAGE: 
The Christian life is supposed to be a life of progression and fruitfulness from one stage to the other. We are expected to grow in faith and bear fruits. We need to equip ourselves for the spiritual battles that will enable this progression. Just like a recruit in the army is expected to learn the rudiments of warfare so he can be effective in battle and thereby progress in rank, we also are supposed to train ourselves in order to grow in the kingdom. Remember that we are running for a prize. We must therefore put away all the childish things that hinder us from progressing and bearing fruits in life. How does a Christian put away childish behaviours? He begins to stud…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME : WHOSE SERVANT ARE YOU?

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: Thursday July 6th, 2017. TEXT: Matthew 4:8-10 THEME : WHOSE SERVANT ARE YOU? MEMORIZE: "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. ye cannot serve God and mammon. " (Matthew 6:24)
MESSAGE: 
Every human being is subject to serve a master. That is the truth. As humans; we were created to serve and worship God. God ordained it that man must serve Him. Man is not a free agent. The original plan was for us to worship our Creator and Master. However, with the fall of man that plan was truncated. Many people think they are serving God while in truth they are under the bondage of another master. Even though they may be ignorant of the fact that they are serving the devil, yet, indirectly they are serving his various interests which have been cleverly disguised as harmless or normal everyday things. They inadvertently serve things like money, entertainment, …

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: FLIRTING WITH SIN WILL LEAD YOU INTO CAPTIVITY

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: Wednesday, 5th July, 2017. TEXT: Judges 16:1-21 THEME: FLIRTING WITH SIN WILL LEAD YOU INTO CAPTIVITY
MEMORIZE: “But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members "Romans 7:23
MESSAGES:
In this month of Jubilee for Captives, we must be careful not to knowingly or unknowingly enter into the captivity of the devil. Flirting with sin is a sure way of entering into captivity. 'It is unfortunate that many Christians toy with sin thinking they can pull back before they get entrapped in it. 
They appear to be comfortable in the company of unbelievers. Instead of preaching the gospel to them, they keep numb and sit by while they engage in all manner of ungodly conversations.
 If they are not careful, it will only be a matter of time before they will be enticed to do the same things. The Bible warns us that evil communication corrupts good manners. Are you pla…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: FOCUS YOUR EYES ON GOD, NOT THE PROBLEM.

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: Tuesday July, 4th 2017. TEXT: Matthew 14:24-31
THEME: FOCUS YOUR EYES ON GOD, NOT THE PROBLEM. MEMORIZE: "But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. " (Matthew 19:26)
MESSAGE: 
Many people tend to focus on problem instead of focusing on the awesomeness of God. They use their physical eyes to assess their situations and come to the conclusion that they are too great to overcome.
 But the truth is that God can do all things and there is nothing too hard for Him to do. However, He requires us to have faith and belief in Him before He can move on our behalf. Note, anytime Jesus encountered a person with a problem, 
He always asked them whether or not they believed in His power to save them. In other words, He counted on their faith to heal them. But how does one exercise faith in the midst of captivity? One way is to solely focus on the awesome nature and power of God instead of t…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: ARE YOU A LAWFUL CAPTIVE?

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: Monday July, 3rd 2017. TEXT: Isaiah 49:24-26
THEME: ARE YOU A LAWFUL CAPTIVE? MEMORIZE: "Shall the prey be taken away from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? " (Isaiah 49:24) MESSAGE: 
There are two categories of captives. The first is a person who unknowingly through no fault of his/her own falls into captivity. An example of this type would be a child that was covenanted by his parents before or after birth. The child had no say in the matter. He/she is probably unaware that any covenant was made on his/her behalf. The second type of captive however is the one that knowingly enters into a covenant with the devil. It can be by joining a cult or willing engaging in sin and going against God's command. In this case, such a person can be described as a lawful captive. When a person is a lawful captive, the devil has legal rights to hold him/her in bondage. Just as a criminal deserves to be in prison, so does a lawful captive dese…

HOW MY LANDLORD BECAME MY TENANT 


Below is an intriguing testimony shared by Bro Obike Chinemere in #UMUAHIA2017 Crusade, day 1. His unwavering faith paved way for him.

HIS TESTIMONY
Between 2012-2013, I was in abject poverty. In march 2013, a friend of mine I was squatting with in Abuja was taking me to where he want to help me with a tricycle to be riding on hire purchase. On our way going, I saw some people wearing apron, and I asked them where they were going of which without any slight hesitation, they told me they were heading to their church's headquarter where their General Overseer - Pastor Lazarus Muoka would be dedicating their church.


28 YEARS CRIPPLE HEALED IN UMUAHIA CRUSADE

28 YEARS CRIPPLE HEALED IN DAY 2 OF #UMUAHIA2017 CRUSADE 


Today, the 2nd day of July, 2017 is a day to reckon with in the life of Bro Miracle. Prior coming to this event, he's been crippled for twenty-eight years. This has taken him to so many places of solution but no healing was proferred to him. Just today, this insult of the enemy in his life was cancelled. The power of God located him where he laid down, strengthened his bones and empowered him to stand. He didn't just stand, he leaped and started walking.

Indeed, only God can do this!

Thank you Awesome Jesus!
