A Nigerian Governor, David Umahi Approves Church Service on Easter Sunday.

undefinedThe Nigerian Governor, David Umahi, Governor of one of the South Eastern Nigeria, Ebonyi State has given the go ahead for church services to be held on Easter Sunday between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.

The state government had restricted church worships and other social gatherings as precautionary measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the state.

The Senior Special Assistant on Religion and Welfare Matters to the Governor, Rev.Fr Abraham Nwali, who disclosed this in a statement, urged worshippers to comply with the government’s directive on the matter.

Nwali is also the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the state.

He said “They must observe sanitary laws which include the usage of sanitisers and hand-washing.

“Every church must conclude activities on or before 12:00 p.m. and worshippers should return to their various homes immediately.”

He implored worshipers not to stay beyond the stipulated time in their churches as defaulters would be made to face the wrath of the law.

“Let us use this window of grace to celebrate Jesus while remaining law-abiding,” Nwali added. (NAN)

Notwithstanding the pandemic, he still recognized the gathering of the brethen. Kudos to Governor David Umahi.

The Best Time To Pray by Apostle Johnson Suleiman

undefinedApostle Johnson Suleiman, a popular Nigerian Pastor took to his verified twitter handle to explain why midnight prayer is very important.

Here is the twit below

There is power in midnight prayers. Christ knew it and constantly operated in that . He went ahead to quote Luke 6:12

Now in those days it occurred that He went up into a mountain to pray, and spent the whole night in prayer to God. Luke 6:12

Many christians don’t pray at night these days. We now depend on routine prayers. As the world is evolving, our prayer alters need to evolve too. To follow the moving trend. If not, we might be conquered. Lets learn to read the scriptures daily and pray without season as Jesus urged us to do.

Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grown. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you – you of little faith? So do not worry, saying “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness , and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

After a day in the ICU, the 40-year-old pastor posted a series of video to emphasize the severity of the disease and requesting that people heed the government advice and stay home.

“This coronavirus is deadly,” he said, drawing short, labored breaths. “Coronavirus wants to kill you, it wants to take all the life out of your lungs.”

McClurg then went on to talk about his love for the local church community that has been holding him up in prayer.

“What I’ve loved over the last week is that my church family has been praying for me. Thank you so much for praying,” he said.

“I belong to Jesus, I believe in Jesus, I love Jesus. I give him all the glory right now. Lord Jesus Christ — not only my saviour — he’s my healer. He’s real.”

Here is the video

While fighting for his life in the hospital, Mark still managed to share a message of hope to his viewers. On a video, he shared a scripture from Isaiah 26:20 saying that this virus will pass.

“Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the fury has passed by.” -Isaiah 26:20.

“This is an encouragement to stay inside for a little while,” McClurg implored. “Coronavirus will pass, but you must stay in.”

On Sunday, Mark joyfully announced that he had overcome the coronavirus and was discharged from the hospital.

“I want to thank everyone for their prayers,” he tweeted. “I want to thank the staff at the Ulster Hospital for saving my life. [I’m] looking forward to enjoying life. Overcome #Coronavirus. Be kind. Jesus is my healer.”

Prince of Isis Mohammad (not his real name), was a religious leader in ISIS, He taught the Koran encouraging his fellow Muslims to memorize the verses and he urged them towards Jihad. “We had began to form groups to defend Islam,” he stated in an interview. He had no answer when asked why he was a Muslim. That led him to search for the “truth.”

“I wanted to find proof and evidence that Allah exists and Islam is right. I found nothing,” he added.

After finding no answers in the Koran, Hadith, and Sunnah, he was able to set up an appointment to meet a Christian, named Peter who has an outreach to Muslims. Peter had been preparing to meet searching Muslims like Mohammad. He knew to meet with a ‘Prince of Isis’ would mean his life was in extreme danger, but God had prepared Peter.

In reality, Mohammad was just as scared, but his desire to search for the truth gave him the courage to face Peter. However he was also full of hatred and anger and had every intention of killing Peter…

At their first meeting Peter boldly shared the Gospel and Mohammad began crying without any reason.

“I saw a love that didn’t exist in Islam”
Later, Mohammad dreamt of an envelope with blood dripping on it being handed to him by Peter. This he did not understand and he contacted Peter again to ask him what this meant.

Peter shared the truth that there is no forgiveness without the shedding of blood. That through the Blood of Jesus our sins are forgiven and we are washed clean.

Mohammad repented there and then and began to be discipled by Peter. What he saw in God’s presence is very powerful! “I saw a love that didn’t exist in Islam,” he said.

God can save anybody. He can turn around even the hardest of hearts. He can transform the persecutor into the protector. Just look what He did in the life of the Apostle Paul. Let’s pray that God would make Himself known to more and more people who we would consider our enemy.

REASONS WHY MY PRAYERS HAVE NOT BEEN ANSWERED

There are certain requirements we must fulfill before God will listen to our prayers.

We Must Belong to God.

“There is one God and one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus” (1Timothy 2:5). Because Jesus is the mediator between us and God, we must give Him our total allegiance.

Before I yielded the control of my life to Jesus Christ, I would pray, but I was never sure if God was listening or would answer. After I asked Him to be the Lord of my life, I had confidence that God was hearing and answering my prayers.

We Must Pray to God the Father in the Name of His Son Jesus Christ.

Only the name of Jesus Christ gives us credibility with the Father — not our education, our wealth or poverty, our church, our background or our position — only Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “If you ask anything in my name, I will do it” (John 14:14).

Sometimes I use my husband’s name, or my church, or my work to gain credibility with people I meet. But only Jesus’ name gives us credibility with the Father.

We Must have a Clean Heart.

Psalm 66:18 says, “If I had known of any sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened to me.”

It is very important to keep a clean heart before God. Someone said, “I ‘fess them as I does them, I don’t bunch them.” Don’t wait until you go to church or a crisis arises in your life to confess your sins to God. As soon as you become aware of an attitude or action that is displeasing to God, admit that it is wrong and thank God for His forgiveness. 1 John 1:9 tells us that if we confess our sins, God is faithful to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

We Must have a Forgiving Spirit.

In Mark 11:25, Jesus says, “Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven my forgive your transgressions.”

Jesus makes it very clear that we can’t carry anger, hatred, or bitterness in our hearts toward anyone if we expect God to forgive us and/or hear our prayers.

We must Pray in Faith.

Jesus said in Matthew 21:22, “And everything you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.”

The very fact that you are asking God for your needs demonstrates your faith.

The answers come every time, but not always in the way we expect. There are times when God answers prayer as soon as we pray. Other times we have to wait for them to be answered. Sometimes is answer is “No”, like all good parents, He gives us what is good for us, but not what is harmful to us, but He always listens and answers.

If you want to be sure God is listening to your prayers, consider if you have ever asked Jesus Christ into your life, you can do so right now by submitting to him with a simple but powerful prayer.

“Lord Jesus, I want you to listen and answer my prayers, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.”

THANK YOU FOR BELIEVING AND CONFESSING JESUS CHRIST.
