Rhapsody of Realities October 17 2023 written by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome And Today’s Message is Light to the Nations
Our opening scripture comes from the book of Philippians 2:14-15 AMPC which says: Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world
Rhapsody Of Realities For Today MESSAGE
There’s so much poverty in the world that’s not supposed to be there. Poverty is not from God; it’s man-made. The poverty and wickedness in the world are because of the selfishness of man, and that’s because Satan introduced that selfishness into man’s heart. He’s responsible for the darkness in our world.
But thanks be unto God! The Bible says even though darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people, we’re to arise and shine ( Isaiah 60:2-3). God sent us (the Church of Jesus Christ) as a light to the nations. And in these last days, we’ll shine with maximum intensity
This is the time for us, as God’s people, to use what God has given us and take our place as the light of the world. The Bible says “..the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty” (Psalm 74:20). But when we take our place, there’s no force, adversary or adversity on earth that can withstand us
So, arise and shine. Impact your world. You’re the hope and solution that the world needs. The Lord has sent you to bring glory, excellence and meaning to the lives of those around you. You’re His h a n d s of love, mercy, and c o m p a s s i o n to your world. Hallelujah!
I’m the hope and solution that the world needs, for the Lord has sent me as a light to bring glory, excellence and meaning to the lives of those around me. I’m God’s hands of love, mercy and compassion to the world. Praise God!
Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!
2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you.
3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.
