It was a Sunday morning – and from the skies, it kept pouring and pouring. Outside, it was wet, cold, flooded, even forbidding. Yet, the people defied it all, thronging to The Synagogue, Church of All Nations and determined to keep their destiny appointment with God Almighty. Inside, the atmosphere was warm with the love of God and charged with expectation as The SCOAN Choir sang in praise of Yahweh. They sang of the power in the name of Jesus Christ – the power that breaks all chains, works mighty miracles and changes destinies.

In a message meant to encourage self-probing, God’s disciple Prophet Chris urged the church to LISTEN TO THE SERMON OF YOUR LIFE. He read from Romans 6: 20-21, Galatians 5: 16-17, Galatians 5: 19-21 and Galatians 6: 7-8. The message focused on the waning fire among Christians as the flesh seems to be dominating the spirit. Prophet Christ stated that there will always be “constant conflict between the flesh and spirit of man” and that being a Christian “equips you to fight the battle.” Regarding vices such as impurity, sexual immorality, hatred, selfish ambition, idolatry and jealousy, as well as others, Prophet Chris asked congregants to search their hearts for the answer to the question as to the benefits they reap from such vices.

Prophet Chris asked congregants to “surrender all” to Jesus and cautioned them against repeating what damages us simply because our hearts are focused on ourselves and not the Spirit of God. Sin, he said, hurts our soul, yet we continue returning to it because we continue to feed the flesh and not the spirit. In concluding the message, Prophet Chris deplored the tendency of today’s church to pay more attention to the building of churches instead of character and the pursuit of applause for sermons rather than the impact of such sermons on hearts, as well as the drive by church leaders for tithes rather than the saving of souls.
