The world is the field for human labour. It is equally unfortunate it is an open arena for Devil’s workshop. The Devil scuttled the pleasure and the good relationship existing between God and man in the Garden of Eden by leading our first parents Adam and Eve into the sin of disobedience resulting into their ejection from that very beautiful and comfortable garden and by implication from the presence of God. They fell from the glory of God. The Devil took over the ruler ship of the lost kingdom on earth forcing many to continue to battle with their faith in God their creator. The plan of the Devil is that man will abandon his faith in God to open the way for the Devil to take control of the life of man and afflict him at will. Man has been under the torment of the Devil because of his faith in his creator since the loss of the kingdom. It is for the restoration of this lost kingdom our Lord Jesus Christ was prepared in heaven to come to the earth. He has, therefore, declared His capacity and gave open invitation to all men to come unto Him as stated in the lead scripture above. The power of restoration, salvation, blessing and protection has been delivered unto Him hence the open invitation to all human beings to come unto Him for rest.

The Bible says in Revelation 22:16-17, “I, Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely”. The water of life is eternal life, which our Lord Jesus Christ has come to give freely to as many as received Him. The only place of succour for the needy, the afflicted, the lost in spirit is in our Lord Jesus Christ.

In Him all things are ready but only for the people who will faithfully answer the call and honour the invitation of the salvation of their souls in preparation for the eternal life in heaven. He left the comfort of heaven to come into the world to seek the lost. That is why the Bible says in Luke 19:10, “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost”. The Devil did his worst in the Garden of Eden by deceiving our first parents and leading them to disobey God, fortunately, a restoration programme was planned and put in place by the introduction of the son who has come to give eternal life to the lost and afflicted. The Bible says in John 10:10-11, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep”. The Devil came to steal the heart and the faith of Adam and Eve with a view to killing them spiritually and eventually destroying them in the hell fire. The quick intervention of the Almighty God made the coming of the son of man who will bruise the head of the serpent. The plan of the Devil will only be checkmated in your life if you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. The good work of God will only be made manifest if the individual concerned accepts the doer as well as the work. That is why the Bible says that you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free. It is the truth you accept and put into practice that will make impact in your life. Judas Iscariot was one of the apostles of Jesus Christ; he was with Christ from the commencement of the gospel to the very day the Lord was arrested for crucifiction. He heard the truth, unfortunately, did not put any of them into practice. If he had been putting the teachings into practice he would not have had the desire of collection money for the betrayal of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is unfortunate and I pray none of the life of the readers of this message will go that way.

Our Lord Jesus Christ laid His life for the salvation of the souls of all men of the world. He is pleading in the presence of God for the forgiveness of the sins of the world. It is only the people who accept this fact and repent of their sins and answer the call that the sacrificial death will have impact in their lives. He came to seek the lost. The people who made themselves available will be taken or raptured to enter into His eternal rest. It is possible one may attend church services every Sunday, be active in the weekly activities, do the work of evangelism but has not opened his heart to receive Jesus Christ and the work of redemption the latter has come to do in the lives of the people of the world.

In John 8:36 the Bible says, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed”. Our Lord Jesus Christ has given us invitation to set us free from the bondage of the Devil. It is our duty to accept that invitation so that the redemption work in our lives will not be in vain. There is nothing lacking in the kingdom of God where the respondents will be hosted. The Bible makes it clear in Luke 14:16-17 saying, “Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: 17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready”. This is indeed a divine invitation; our Lord Jesus Christ has gone to prepare mansions for us in heaven for a great banquet and is telling us to come that all things are now ready. It is now time to make yourself available for everything our Lord Jesus Christ has come to offer to the people of the world. There is salvation waiting for you in heaven; but you must seek God first, repent of all your known and unknown sins, live holy and righteous life and do the work of God with the best of your ability, all that God has prepared for you both here on earth and in the world to come will be made available to your in Jesus name.

Testimony Of The Lord’s Doing
“This Is My Son, Listen To Him,” Angel Told A Doubting Thomas
MY name is Sister Theresa Ogbonna, and I reside at Abuja. I joined this ministry in 2009. Before then I was a member of Jehovah’s witness, one day I was in my house watching a movie, suddenly the channel changed to Chosen TV, I saw our General Overseer praying and numerous miracles took place, I was angry and I changed the channel, by then where I was before we don’t believe in miracles, I changed the channel to watch my movie and it changed back to Chosen Tv, it repeated over and over again, within me I felt something was wrong, I heard a voice that said: “This is my son listen to him,” I became afraid because I haven’t seen it in that form, it dawned on me and I sat down and listened to the salvation message, I cried bitterly and repented. I told God that if He’s the One that called our General Overseer, He should reveal him to me and show me where the church is situated in Abuja. One day, I was on my way driving to work, I saw a Chosen bus and a man sharing handbill, I told him that I watched this church on cable that he should please give me the church address in Abuja, he gladly gave me the church address and told me that they’re having a crusade at the state headquarters in Jabi, titled: “That Pharoah Must Die.”

I thanked him and went to work, on the day of the programme I located the church and I was there with numerous afflictions like arthritis, partial blindness, diabetes, typhoid and malaria, among others. So, during the programme our Pastor mentioned my case and after that, all the afflictions were rolled away, at the close of the programme our Pastor said: “There is someone here the angel of God’ll visit you as you go home,” when I got home that night I had a dream where the angel visited me and did operation on my throat and when I woke up the pain in my throat was no more. I shouted, “This church is real ooo.” The Lord did wondrous things for me, I gave birth to my first and second child through operation but when I joined this ministry I was delivered of my third child at home like a Hebrew woman, the Lord has been faithful, He blessed my family financially, I appreciate God for His goodness.

May His name be praised forever in Jesus name. I pray for our General Overseer and his family, Chosen Pastors, leaders, workers and members, heaven at last in Jesus name.
Sister Theresa Ogbonna, F.C.T. Abuja.
