I have recently watched the combined services of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and Pastor Benny Hinn; and I can tell you now that these two anointed men of God are taking this world by storm. With the level of anointing they are ministering with, and through the demonstration of the Spirit of God, many are turning their faith to Jesus Christ. Even those who were already of the Household of Faith in Christ are being strengthened and catapult to new levels of glory. As Pastor Chris explain, the things of God is not difficult, they very easy; but we ought to have faith in the Word and learn to apply it. In this segment, I want to share with you the service notes of the California [USA] meeting with Pastor Chris through the invitation of Pastor Benny. If you would like to watch this service, I have included the full video on this service for you to watch below.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome in California with Pastor Benny Hinn
Pastor Chris started his message by saying that in these days we living in, many has set the scriptures aside and are looking for answers elsewhere; they think that the Bible is old fashioned and can’t give advice on our modern-day living. He says that when he ask people if they are preaching the Gospel, and they answer yes. So when he ask what is the Gospel, he finds that their answer reveals that they have no idea what the Gospel is. Pst. Chris raises a valid question in saying; how can you believe something you don’t understand? Prov.4:7 – “Wisdom is a principle thing, therefore get wisdom; and with all thy getting, get understanding.” Jesus told a parable about a sower who went forth to sow. As he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside and birds came to take them up. With Jesus’ interpolation on this, He said that the seed that fell by the wayside is like those who heard the Word of God and don’t understand it; and satan come immediately [not later but straight away] and steals the words that were sown into their hearts. Meaning that the Word actually got into their hearts, but they didn’t understand it so the devil took it away. Pastor lay emphases that you have to understand the message [the Gospel]. If you understand the Gospel, you will never need another fire! Pastor says that he ministers to so many people all over the world who is always looking for a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th anointing; double and triple anointing, they looking for these things; and it is all because they don’t understand the scriptures.
You can tell by the songs they sing that they don’t understand the scripture: There’s one he says he has been singing for a long time too; and one day while singing he hurt the voice of the Lord say: ‘Stop it!’ Pastor say he ask the Lord why, and the Lord said; ‘Listen to yourself.’ He says that explains why the churches is full of babes today, even the pulpits. Jesus is coming for a church without spot, without blemish… He is coming for a grown church – hallelujah! The Bible says that we are no more children being tossed to and fro, to grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. He doesn’t want us to remain kids / babies. You got to grow.
Pastor ask; how many of you still sings: ‘Fill my cup Lord, I lift it up Lord, come and quench this thirsting of my soul, bread of heaven feed me till I want no more, here’s my cup, fill it up and make me whole…’ Pastor says as he sang this song one day, the Lord told him to stop. Pastor ask the Lord; ‘Why, what’s wrong with it?‘ One beautiful thing about God is that when He talks with you, you can reply Him without fear. We sometimes fear those who have authority over us in this world, but when the lord speaks with us, we don’t have to be scared. You’ll think because God is so great, that if you have to hear His voice that you will be paralyzed. No, that voice takes the fear away! Look at your Bible, all those men and women God spoke to, they responded to Him; and it was not in fear. Understand that when God talks to you, He let you be you; you can be bold in His presence.
Now look at it: ‘Fill my cup Lord…’ Fill it with what? ‘Come and quench my thirst…’ Jesus said to the woman at the well, anybody who drinks of this water will thirst again, but if you drink of the water that I give, you will never thirst again, for that water will be in you a well of water springing up into everlasting life.’ You will never thirst again; so how can you say fill my cup as I lift it up – with what, because if you have Christ you will never thirst again. But people don’t know it, because they never understood it. They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness, yet I have said ye are God’s, all of you are children of the most High, yet you will die like men. Why? Because they know not! Pastor continues using some examples of some songs churches are singing today; but he also says that God will bless you as much as He can, but it depends on how much you can receive – God wants to give you, but do you have understanding to receive it…
Do you not know who you are; for He calls us the associates of the God-kind [John 10:34 / 1 John 4:4], this is our reality. Think of this; If Jesus really came and paid the price for us to live, He sacrificed Himself so we may have life; was all that so that we must continue living a beggarly life? NO! Pastor Chris says, he thought about it many years ago; if Jesus had to pay the price for him, then that must be because Jesus thought of him as much as He thought of Himself. Pastor didn’t just want to believe something, he wanted to believe something which were also provable to others. Pastor says he was young and he wanted to know how will he prove to another young person that this Jesus is Christ. One of his prayers was always asking the Lord for prove; and the Lord gave him so many…

Note by Evng./Pst. Rudi Ferreira
With believing in the Gospel you got to understand it; otherwise you believing in vain, for your believing will not be evident in your living. If your believing is not evident in your living, how then will you prove Christ Jesus to your world?
With signs, wonders, and miracles, this service was one of many impactful services to come as Pastor Benny Hinn invites Pastor Chris Oyakhiome to hold a healing service in California, USA.
