GOD GAVE ME MANY SCHOLARSHIPS

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 results were released and I made all the subjects at one sitting.  This is something that was difficult to pass in the year 2014.
Later on,  I applied to write TOEFL and SAT exams.  By God's grace, I passed both exams.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…CHOOSE LIFE!



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 His numerous promises and blessings and the conditions attached to them if we are desirous of obtaining them. We can therefore not claim ignorance of the will of God or say we were left clueless.

In our reading, Moses, as he approached the time of his death, took time to lay down the options available for the Israelites to choose from. They could either serve the Lord their God who had delivered them from Egypt and shown them so much mercy and by doing so choose life which will ensure peace and blessing or they could forsake Him and follow other gods and by doing so, choose a life of terrible curses and afflictions and ultimately death. The choice was theirs. But after laying out the options, Moses did not leave it up to them to guess. He went further to point them into the direction of life.

Today, Jesus is also advising you to choose life. God loves you so much and has sent Jesus to die the death that you deserved so that you may have eternal life. He has freed you from the captivity of the devil. Why should you still remain in bondage? Why must you die? Be wise and choose life today so it can be well with you.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. I thank you Lord for making abundant life available to me, in Jesus' name.
2. Any force warring against my soul, receive judgment of the Lord in Jesus' name.
3. I decree and declare that, I shall not die but live to proclaim your glory in Jesus' name.
4. Dear Lord,I pray that the the strength of my G. O and Mummy in the Lord shall be renewed in Jesus' name.

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



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 not ready for the life of denial that is required to follow Christ. Like Lot's wife they keep looking back at what they left behind. They do not know that these so called pleasures' are actually traps to lead them back into captivity.

In our text of today, we see the Israelites longing to go back to Egypt. Anytime they encountered an obstacle along the way, they would quickly forget the bondage and the hardship they left behind and start longing to go back. They would rather remember the food and the houses and other 'luxuries' and start to complain and mummer. 

They easily forgot all God's benefits towards them. They were tired of roaming the wilderness. They forgot that it was their disobedience that kept them in the wilderness as that was not God's original plan for them. They however did not realize that going back to Egypt would mean going back to captivity and eternal bondage. They were willing to sacrifice their freedom for the illusion of comfort. What a pity! Their attitude eventually provoked the anger of God and He vowed that they would not enter His promise land.

Brethren, never be tempted to go back to Egypt (i.e. captivity) no matter the obstacle you might meet along the way. Where God is taking you to, is much better than whatever you had to give up to follow Christ. He has in store for you a glorious future. Why go back to captivity when the Lord has paid such a high price for your freedom? The price He paid is much more than anything you have given up to follow him. Going back will lead to destruction and death. Do not be deceived by the vanity of this world. Remember Lot's wife.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Continuation brings freedom. O Lord, give me the grace to continue no matter the challenges, in Jesus' name

2. Every voice speaking discouragement and disillusionment, be silenced forever in Jesus' name

3. Dear Lord, uphold my G O and Mummy in the Lord so that they will remain encouraged even in the midst of trials and temptations, in Jesus' name.

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.

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.

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.

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

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




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 should fear is the one who after killing the body has the power to cast you into hell. The only one capable of that is God and He alone should we fear. It is very dangerous for us to fear man more than God. King Saul feared people more than God and choose to disobey God's command and listen to the advice of his people by sparing King Agag and some choice cattle, instead of totally destroying them as God had commanded. This caused him to lose his office and peace and He was never reconciled to God till he died.
The worst that any man can do to you is kill you. However, whether we like it or not we will all die one day. For a true believer, death should not be feared because we are assured of heaven. Jesus has told us that those that will save their lives will first lose it (Matthew 16:25) while those that try to save their lives will eventually lose it (John 12:25). That means that when you are so careful not to offend man at the expense of offending God, you will eventually end up in hell fire. You cannot please God when the fear of man is your primary concern. Decide today to fear only the one that can kill both body and soul. In the end that is the only One that matters.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Dear Lord, instill your fear in me so that I may serve you acceptably all the days of my life, in Jesus' name.

2. I bind and cast out the fear of man from my heart, in Jesus' name
3. Dear Lord, let all the enemies of our G. O, Mummy in the Lord and The Lord's Chosen Ministry, be dumbfounded in Jesus' name

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...




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 touch. They have been coming for years but still have not had a personal encounter and they are wondering if the testimonies they are hearing are true or not. The testimonies are definitely true. The problem is that many people seem to have an alternative to God or what some refer to as a 'Plan B'. They see God as one of their alternatives. If He does not come through they have another plan. For example one might be praying for divine healing but still rely more in the report of the doctors in foreign countries. They believe the doctors are knowledgeable and so, prefer to spend all their money seeking for treatment. 

This way, they allow the doctor 's report to take root in their hearts. God often waits till you have run out of options and choose to wholly depend on Him before He moves to deliver you. In today's reading, we discover that once Asa stopped relying solely on God, his shield of protection was removed and he started to have wars and even became diseased in his foot, which eventually cost him his life. This is the danger of seeking for alternatives to God. 

You must learn to rely solely on God and not on your own understanding in order to experience His deliverance. With God, you have no need for a Plan B.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. O God my heavenly Father, give me the will power and personal discipline to rely solely on you, in Jesus' name
2. Any spirit speaking doubt and unbelief into my mind, be silenced in Jesus' name.
3. O God, take our G. O and Mummy in the Lord to higher levels of faith, grace and righteousness and cause them to solely rely on you in Jesus' name.

THAT WE MAY EXPERIENCE HIS WONDERS - BY PASTOR LAZARUS MUOKA

COMBINED SUNDAY SERVICE MESSAGE

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



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 will forgive them once they repented and he believed there was no need to embark on such journey. 

Instead of going to the Nineveh, Jonah went in the opposite direction. His action caused God to cast Him into the sea and be swallowed by a whale and he stayed in its belly for three days. Jonah repented and cried out for mercy and was forgiven. When he eventually; arrived in Nineveh and delivered God's message of the imminent disaster, the inhabitants had a change of heart and repented as Jonah had envisaged. ]

God in His infinite mercies changed His mind and forgave them and did not destroy the city. This is a pointer that His mercy is greater than His judgment (James 2:13b). We must also note that God is a just God. He will always warn us before He executes judgement because He does not delight in the death of a sinner.

Apart from not punishing us according to our iniquities, God also shows mercy and compassion when He sees His people under the bondage/yoke of the devil and his agents. 

He is grieved when He sees the righteous suffer under undue oppression and is moved to intervene on their behalf, just like He did when the Israelites were under the yoke of slavery in Egypt. Are you under any oppression? Cry out to the Lord for mercy. He will have compassion and deliver you today if only you make up your mind to turn away from evil and serve Him with all your heart.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. O Lord, have mercy upon me. I repent of my wicked past. Be merciful unto me and avert any impending Judgment, in Jesus' name.

2. O God my Father, have compassion on me and deliver me from the oppression of my enemies, in Jesus' name.

3. Lord, you promised to show mercy unto whom you will show mercy. May our G. O, Mummy in the Lord and their entire family be beneficiaries of your mercies, in Jesus' name.

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



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 wear, shelter over our heads and are in good health. Most importantly He has given us salvation and a glorious future by sending Jesus Christ to die for us even when we were still the vilest of sinners. How great a love! Indeed, He is worthy of praise and adoration.

Unfortunately many of us take His mercies and goodness for granted. All the things mentioned above are not considered as gifts or blessing but rights. I wonder if you will feel the same way when you hear of people who were healthy but died in their sleep, or if you had no clothes to wear, or food to eat, or a place to live. If your health suddenly deteriorates, then you will understand that all the money in the world cannot be compared to good health. Have you bothered to find out why that long awaited miracle has been delayed? You have refused to acknowledge Him for the various blessings He has showered on you in the time past. God is not pleased when we are ungrateful and do not praise Him and give Him the glory only He deserves. This may be the reason He is yet to release you from that captivity you are in now. It's time to get up and praise God and worship Him with all your heart and repent for being ungrateful.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. I praise and bless your name Almighty God. I thank you for all your benefits towards me, in Jesus’ name.
2. Arise O Lord, let your enemies be scattered, in Jesus’ name.
3. Thank you O Lord for all the mighty blessings you have showered upon the Chosen ones, in Jesus’ name.
4. Thank you for our G. O, Mummy in the Lord, their children and The
Lord’s Chosen ministry, in Jesus’ name.

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





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 study the word of God which helps him/her to grow spiritually. That way, he/she becomes well acquainted with His laws and promises. Not knowing His word is not an excuse because He has made it available for us. That is why the Bible asks us to seek so we find. Dwelling on His words and promises help our faith to grow. We must also learn to practice His commandments and live righteously and separate from the world system. It is not the hearer of the word but the doer of the word that pleases God. We must pray without ceasing as a way to gain access into Gods presence and there we can make our request known to him, thereby oiling our relationship with Him. We must also begin to win souls for the kingdom. When we do all these things we will be able to withstand the trials ana temptations that will surely come to test our faith. Every test we pass makes us stronger in the Lord.
It is however a pity that after many years of being born again, some people have not been able to discard childish behaviours spiritually and are still at the same spot. They' have failed to progress to the next level. They are not winning souls and still need to be prayed for and encouraged like new converts. They fall at the slightest trial or temptation. They complain and mummer. They have not built any spiritual muscle. Their flesh is still in control. This is sad. It is time to grow up and put childish things away. Make a commitment that you will begin to grow today.
Worship/praise God and then take the following Prayer points:
1. Lord, I thank you God for making me a Chosen and for granting me genuine salvation, in Jesus' name.
2. Dear Lord, give me the grace to build spiritual muscle that will enable me advance in the kingdom, in Jesus' name.
3. I break every yoke of spiritual sluggishness and lukewarm attitude in Jesus' name.
4. Dear Lord, I pray that my G. O and Mummy in the Lord will continue their services to you in Jesus' name.

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



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, luxury lifestyles, work/business, fame, self, fashion, drugs, alcohol, the opposite gender, family, power/ambition. etc. All these things can be idols if care is not taken. In fact anything that you may value above God and your relationship with Him is an idol and your master whether you believe it or not.

Ask yourself what is it that you spend most of your time and resources on or value the most? Anything that you cannot do without is your master. It is very dangerous to make anything other than God your master for He is a jealous God and a consuming fire. Both you and the object of your affection stand a good chance of being consumed if you do not make haste to repent. While God has blessed us good things, He does not expect us to transfer our affection to the gifts He has bequeathed us with We are expected to return all worship to Him and also love Him with all our heart, soul and body. If you have made anything an idol in your life, today is an opportunity to repent and reconcile to the one and only true Master, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. Help me, O Lord, to love and serve you with all my heart in Jesus' name.
2. I bind every spirit of distraction and vanity in the name of Jesus.
3. O Lord God my Father, today, I enthrone you afresh as the Lord and Saviour of my life, in Jesus' name.
4. O Lord, sustain my G. O and Mummy in the Lord with your goodness and mercies in Jesus' name.

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



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 playing with sin and saying that you can handle it before it gets out of hand? Make sure you live righteously and obey the commandments of God.

Samson was a great man of God in his time: raised to be a deliverer of his people the Israelites and for a time, He was a terror to their enemies. He was so strong that no man could defeat him. But along the line, he deviated. Instead of living a righteous and holy life, he began to toy with sin. He lusted after women including harlots despite the fact that he was supposed to be consecrated unto God. He ignored the warning of his parents. 

He must have thought to himself that he would handle it without getting entrapped. Eventually the enemy prevailed against him because of this carelessness.The unfortunate situation was that he was not even aware when the spirit of the Lord left him (Judges 16:20). The same thing happens to a Christian who is in a backsliding state: They are not aware that having grieved the Holy Spirit in them, the spirit will depart. In the end, Samson was taken into captivity. Though God him mercy by allowing him to avenge his enemies, he died alongside with his enemies. That is the danger of flirting with sin.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Dear Lord, give me the grace to be vigilant and watchful so I will not fall prey to the wiles of the enemy
2. Any spirit of backsliding assigned against my salvation, be arrested by the Holy Ghost, in Jesus' name.
3. By the power and authority in the name of Jesus Christ, I overcome the lust of the flesh and eyes and the pride of life, in Jesus' name.
4. Uphold our G. O and Mummy in the Lord so that they will finish this race and receive their crowns of glory.

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



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 the enormity of the problem or situation. No matter the size of our problem, God is more than able to solve it. He that created the heavens and the earth and everything that is inside it and to whom all power belongs, is more than able to solve that problem you think is too great. While with man it may be impossible, but with God all things are possible.

In our reading today, we see that once Peter took his eyes off Jesus and started to look at the water and fear crept in. Fear and Faith are opposites. Both cannot be at work at the same time. Once fear comes, faith leaves. Fear made Peter to remember that it was humanly impossible for a man to walk on water even though that was what He was doing. He remembered the numerous perils at sea and forgot that he was in the presence of He that created all things and the result was that he began to sink. That is what happens when we focus on the enormity of a problem and not Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. There is no problem that you are passing through that God is not greater than or doesn't have the solution to. Therefore do not fear; focus on Him and He will see you through.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Any problem assigned to take my focus away from the throne of grace; be destroyed by fire, in Jesus name.
2. I ask for the enabling grace to remain steadfast in the face of oppositions, trials and temptations, in Jesus' name.
3. Any situation (Name any situation of worry or anxiety) in my life magnified by the devil to look like a mountain, I refuse to bow to you, in the name of Jesus Christ.
4. Father, release the anointing which no problem can defy upon our G. O and Mummy in the Lord, in Jesus' name.

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



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 deserve captivity.

In the same manner, any person who continues to rebel against His creator by engaging in sin despite knowing the truth is a legal captive in the hand of the devil. Are you a lawful captive? Being a lawful captive is a worrisome situation since the devil will use it to exercise dominion over the victim. Does the devil have a legal claim over you because of your sins and so accuses you daily before God? Notwithstanding the captivity over your life, God is telling you today that He is ready to set you free if only you will return to Him. Once you become born again the devil will no longer have any hold on you. This is the time to return back to God today. Only in Him can you find true freedom and peace. Annul your contract with the devil today

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Every captivity of the devil over my life, be terminated in Jesus' name.
2. Any covenant entered into on my behalf by my ancestral parents, which has made me a legal captive, be broken and annulled, in Jesus' name.
3. Any agreement with the idol spirits of my father's house mortgaging my wealth, riches, destiny and family into devil's hands, be terminated, in Jesus' name.
4. By the power and authority of the Holy Ghost, we lift up our G.O. and Mummy in the Lord above every captivity of the devil, in Jesus' name.

5 YEARS INSANITY TOTALLY CRUSHED

TESTIMONY TRAIL FROM #UMUAHIA2017 CRUSADE


5 YEARS INSANITY TOTALLY CRUSHED

Bro Peter Kalu Okemiri Joined Chosen on Nov. 2008. He worships at 52 MCC Road Aba Abia State (The Head Quarters of TLCCRM, Abia State)

He is thanking God for healing him from the Spirit of Madness that lasted for 5 years. In his testimony, he said in January 2012, he had a dream where his private part was cut off and when he woke up, he lost his sanity.


HOW MY LANDLORD BECAME MY TENANT

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!
