In BIBLE STUDY
1 Corinthians 2: 12, Colossians 4: 12 12. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God; …that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God Growing in perfection is the heart-beat of the Father for His people at this present time. However, it is impossible to grow in perfection without a complete understanding of what the Father's will is. Now we know the will of the Father can only be found in the Holy Scriptures. Our study sessions offer you the pleasure of going through the scriptures; from the book of Genesis to Revelation. However, unlike other Bible reading plans, we encourage studying the bible, rather than just reading it. Basically, this is how it works : 1. Each week, a passage of scripture is shared here. The passage focus for each period shall be very short and easy to read/study within seven (7) days. This is because the main aim is not to run through the bible within a short period of time but rather to learn via personal study unto perfection. 2. In order to enhance purposeful reading, the scripture focus shall be accompanied by study guidelines, and meditation-provoking questions among other study-enhancing materials. The Bible study is basically a week-long discussion of a given passage of scripture, so feel free to share your views, ask questions, etc. as desired. 3. Once we are done studying the given passage of focus, we can share what we learned without having to wait for our Bible Study Service. 4. If we have any questions based on what we read, feel free to post them here for discussion 5. To encourage everyone to study, everyone is expected to share their findings irrespective of how similar they may be to what has been shared by others 6. During each Bible Study Service, tips for effective study of the Word shall be given and a new passage of focus shared.

The I IN CHRIST Online Church gives you the certainty of being connected to the same Word of grace and perfection, irrespective of where you are/go. However, the comfort of learning from wherever we also comes with its 'challenges'. In order to make the most of every live service, we have to make a conscious effort to create the right atmosphere for effective worship and fellowship with the saints. Here are a few tips that would help us in achieving creating the right atmosphere of worship: Choose a quiet place and one that is free of distraction Attend each service with the mindset we are at a physical gathering rather than we are just streaming a service Endeavor to concentrate on the service and avoid the temptation to do other things (on your device or around ) during the course of the service Rest properly before the service to avoid lack of concentration due to fatigue Take notes during the service as this helps in maintaining focus and concentration Partake in all activities during the service rather than just watching others do so Other things to note (video/audio conference calls only ): Connect to meetings some minutes before the start time. This would give you time to set up and carry out all necessary tests before the meeting starts Where possible turn off other electronic devices around you (such as television and radio). This is to eliminate radio interferences If you are using your laptop or computer, please keep your mobile devices at a distance from it. This is to avoid echo, statics, and feedback during the call If there is an increase in noise where you are, please mute your microphone until the noise abates. This is to eliminate background noises during the meeting

In the early weeks of September of our Sabbath year, the Holy Spirit instructed me to add a new administrative feature to our operations. 'Lord, that's a lot of work you are asking me to do', I said to Him. 'Then, get right to it', He replied. This task was going to require me to do some coding work ( computer programming). I was hesitant to do this work because: I was enjoying just listening to teachings all-day I was fasting and as such would be hungry. I was concerned that my hunger would affect my productivity I hadn't coded in the required language in a long time. From experience, anytime I don't use a programming language in a long time, I get rusty and this makes working very difficult. Despite my reservations, I had to do as instructed. To my amazement, I was not rusty at all and my physical weakness was not a limitation at all. I even knew things I didn't know before, as though I had taken a course without realizing it. Each time I got stuck, the Holy Spirit told me exactly what to do. Despite being able to commit only an average of four hours a day ( I still had to study and pray), I was able to complete the main work (excluding the user feedback & bug testing phase) within three days. Ideally, this would have taken me between four to seven days of full attention to complete. I give all the glory to God for sharpening my mind beyond the bounds of natural laws. Glory to God!!

The praise reports below are some of the reports received prior to the creation of our online community. It's our prayer and desire that they strengthen your faith. Learning from the ministry has opened my eyes to see that there are higher truths/ revelations than what I know and have been taught. It has shifted me from being only focused on making heaven to having a relationship with the Father here on the earth. - Emmanuel O. The Perfection Series Volume 1 was an interesting read. I was so greatly blessed by the book that I read it thrice from cover to cover in two weeks - Uchechi N. I was greatly blessed by the November 2016 edition of the ministry's devotional - Our Daily Walk of Perfection*. The way in which spiritual truths are explained using physical analogies makes grasping of new truths easier and presents already known truths in an exciting new way - Victor O. I was having some challenges with my business and as such was heavy and sad. During this period I receive a message from the ministry titled "Prosperity". Listening to this teaching made me realize the things I ought to do. It also gave me the assurance that all would be well. I am grateful to God for showing me the way via His Word - Uchechi N.

The praise reports below are some of the reports received prior to the creation of our online community. It's our prayer and desire that they strengthen your faith. I am here to testify that the Word works. At all my places of work, I always give my best and work as one working for God and not man. Even when it looks as though am being used/exploited by my superiors, I did not let this affect my work ethic. Recently, while changing jobs, the company I was leaving was sad to see me go and was willing to renegotiate my contract with them to ensure I stay. Even the security personnel could testify that my departure was going to be a big loss for the company. The greater testimony, however, is that though I joined the new company in the last quarter of the year, I was awarded the 'Employee of The Year' award for that year. Indeed acting in line with the Word produces amazing results -Michael U. A few days before one of our local (i.e. non-online) Word & Impartation Conferences, I received a message that due to a nationwide deadline, I would be required to work that weekend. I had greatly wanted to be at the service and was saddened I would be forced to miss it. I informed the Lead Minister of the state of things and he told me to continue my preparations for the upcoming Conference because our Father would make a way for me. On the eve of the conference, I received a message that the deadline has been moved and as such would no longer be required at work that weekend. I give all the glory to our Father who ensured I did not miss out in the empowerment and grace that was released at the conference. - David B. I give all the praises to our heavenly Father for divine direction in my career pursuit. In an economy where people are looking for jobs, I have been getting/ changing jobs effortlessly. When I felt it was best to leave my first place of work, the only job offer I had was going to pay less than what I currently earned and I was going to be a contract staff. I called the Lead Minister for divine direction on what to do. He told me to always choose whichever job would give me enough time for my spiritual growth and personal development. He said "The Kingdom must come first. Even if it is not the perfect job, it would be a path to the perfect job." As advised, I took the job offer, and less than a year later, I had another job offer with a better pay package and a more favorable work schedule. Applying the principle of the kingdom first, not only do I have a better job, but I also am able to improve my employability by undergoing training programs during my free time -Michael U. For some days I was plagued with a fever and headache. The pain was so severe that I could barely do anything. I thought all I needed was to rest but when I discovered that the fever, rather than abating, was increasing, I decided to call the contact line of the ministry for prayers. Immediately I was prayed for, my temperature returned to normal and the severe headache seized. I want to return all the glory to God who healed me and restored sound health to me. - Victoria M.

As we know, we were instructed by God to begin an 18 weeks marathon online evangelism project. This meant using paid online advert campaigns on Facebook to reach the world with the gospel. Each week we are to boost a new video proclaiming God's love and grace. Our video for the first week was rejected by Facebook was rejected on the grounds that its descriptive text was too personal. I made some adjustments and resubmitted them for approval. This time the Advert was rejected for 'offering a before and after promise that may cause unclear/undesired results'. Even before I saw the reason for the second rejection, I brought up the challenge we were having as a prayer point at one of our daily hour of prayers for ministers. We declared that despite Facebook policies, our Advert was going to get approved. The next day, I resubmitted the Advert and it was rejected again. This time it was made clear that it was the video itself that violated their policies. I contemplated changing the video, but I reminded myself that it was God that gave the instruction to start the campaign and that He gave me the content of the video. I also recalled our prayer about the video getting accepted despite any violations. I was not going to give up on my faith because of some opposition. I resubmitted the video again without making any adjustments and within two hours it was approved. Even more amazing was the fact that within less than twenty minutes of running, of the fifteen people that saw the video, ten of them played it. I give all the glory to God for the gift of His faith. Indeed persistent faith produces amazing results.

What is a praise report? A praise report is a summarized account of what the Father has done or is doing in your life, due to either your obedience to His Word or His infinite mercies. It is a proclamation of the Father's awesome acts in your life; as such, it is an act of worship (just like singing). How to share an effective praise report? Praise reports are not an opportunity to showcase spiritual heights attained or power wielded by either yourself or the vessel used for your deliverance. It is all about 'shouting out loud' the Father's beauty and the glory of the new birth. The Father would never share His glory with any man (Isaiah 42:8, Isaiah 48:11) Praise reports are a summarised version of a miracle. They must be kept as precise and straight to the point as possible. In simpler terms, leave out all information that would not impair passing across the intended message. Now, it is common for an individual to try many approaches in an attempt to get out of an unsavory situation. Such an individual may not be able to tell which of his actions led to the desired transformation. Hence, it is imperative that care is taken to identify, in the light of the Word, which actions taken are responsible for the deliverance. This is important because praise reports are meant to teach how to replicate the same miracle (Hebrews 6:12). A few thoughts: The Father is not slow to respond; it only takes finding the right approach to get your desired answers. The experiences of men do not validate the Word but rather the Word can change the experience of those who dare to believe What happens when you share a praise report? The hearers are inspired Sharing your praise report strengthens those in a similar situation to what you were in (Hebrews 10:24). They realize the Father is also going to come through for them as they take the same steps you took; because God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34) The miracle is multiplied Jesus gave thanks and the fishes multiplied (Mathew 15: 32 – 37). When praise is given increase comes (Psalm 67: 5 - 6). Even so, whenever you share a praise report, by covenant principle (the law of association – see Proverbs 27:17 & John 6:63), such miracle (and similar) multiplies not only in your life but also in the life of those with whom you share it. by reason of The miracle is perfected Whenever a praise report is shared, the concerned miracle is perfected - if it is yet to be perfected (Luke 17:12 – 19). The best way to fast forward the full manifestation of any desired blessing is to celebrate what the Father has already done. A praise report (done right) can never diminish. It is bound to grow rapidly unto perfection (Malachi 2:2)

Lyrics Verse 1 I’ve heard the accusation And I’ve heard the propaganda I’ve heard the lies They whisper to my soul That I have been forsaken And I’ll always be forgotten No matter what I do It’s not enough Then I heard a Voice As it opened up the Heavens reminding Me Of Whom I’ve always been Chorus I am Your beloved You have bought me With Your blood And on Your hand You’ve written out my name I am Your beloved One the Father loves Mercy has defeated all my shame Verse 2 There’s no accusation Or any condemnation When I look into my Father's eyes They don’t see my sin They only see redemption This is how my Heart Has been defined I can hear a Voice That is louder than the thunder Reminding me Of Whom I’ve always been Bridge The One who knows me best Is the One who Loves me most There is nothing I have done That could change The Father’s love The One who knows me best Is the One who loves me most There is nothing I have done That could change The Father’s love The One who knows me best Is the One who loves me most There is nothing I have done That could change The Father’s love Spontaneous I can hear the feet Of the Father running I can hear the feet Of the Father running Oh, I can hear the feet Of the Father running Oh, I can hear the Feet Of the Father Running It’s like a stampede of Grace Coming my way Mercy I never earned Grace I never deserved Coming to bring me home again I can hear the Father Calling my name I can see the Face of my Father I can hear the Voice of my Father Calling out my name I can hear the Father I can hear the heart I can hear the heart of my Father Here He comes Here He comes Here He comes I AM YOUR BELOVED by Jonathan & Melissa Helser (Bethel Music)
