Jekalyn-carr-billboard-chart-e1599743249474

America’s renowned gospel singer and prolific songwriter Jekalyn Carr has earned for the fourth time the #1 spot on Billboard’s gospel chart for her prophetic single “Changing Your Story

Undoubtedly one of this generation’s most celebrated young talents, Carr, has amassed a lot of

successes at her young age.

This historic accomplishment marks Carr’s 4th #1 song by the young age of 23, and “Changing Your Story” is her 6th Top 10 radio single.

The high-powered and deeply personal song, “Changing Your Story,” is signature Jekalyn Carr. The music is vibrant and spirited while Carr’s well-known vocals, depth, and fullness bring it to life. “This song is a personal testimony,” said Carr. “It hit home for me, knowing how God has turned my story around. But I wanted this to be something — a push or a reminder that God has changed your story, and He will do it again.”

Carr, a 4x Grammy nominee, multiple Stellar Award winner, and Dove Award winner, is prepping for her fifth full-length album, CHANGING YOUR STORY, which is due October 23. Recorded live last October, at the famous festival “Praise In The Park” in Atlanta, CHANGING YOUR STORY captures all the energy, excitement, and power, making this one of the most anticipated gospel albums of 2020.

Chinese Government Orders Low-Income Families to Abandon Their Christian Faith or Lose Financial Aid

chinesechristians_hdv

In the Chinese government’s continuing persecution of Christians, poor families are now being told to renounce their faith or lose welfare benefits.

Bitter Winter reports that the Chinese economy has been deeply affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, especially low-income households struggling to make ends meet.

Now government officials are ordering Christians who receive welfare payments to replace crosses, religious symbols, and images inside their homes with portraits of China’s communist leaders.

“All impoverished households in the town were told to display Mao Zedong images,” a local pastor told Bitter Winter. “The government is trying to eliminate our belief and wants to become God instead of Jesus.”

A church member in one of the villages recalled how authorities entered his home and destroyed a calendar with an image of Jesus on it, then replaced it was a portrait of Mao instead.

“Impoverished religious households can’t receive money from the state for nothing—they must obey the Communist Party for the money they receive,” he explained.

Enforcing the new regulation started several months ago across China.

In April, the government of Xinyu city in the southeastern province of Jiangxi withheld a disabled Christian’s funds (about $14) if the believer continued to attend worship services.

And in Jiangxi’s Poyang county, an elderly Christian woman was taken off the government’s aid list because she said “Thank God” after receiving her monthly check (about $28).

In May, a government official in the eastern province of Shandong barged into the home of a Christian and posted portraits of Mao and President Xi Jinping, then said, “These are the greatest gods. If you want to worship somebody, they are the ones.”

Another elderly woman from Henan’s Shangqiu city lost her welfare benefits in April after officials found a cross displayed on her house door.

“They tore it down immediately,” the Christian said. “Afterward, both my minimum living allowance and poverty alleviation subsidy were canceled. I am being driven to a dead end. I have diabetes and need injections regularly.”

Earlier this year, the communist regime began removing crosses from churches throughout China and now portraits of Mao and Xi have replaced images of the Holy Spirit.

U.S Rapper DMX Tells Fans to Receive Jesus As He leads Online Bible Study

DMX-rehab

American rapper and actor Earl Simmons, better known by his stage name DMX, has hosted a Bible study on Instagram and urged thousands of viewers to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.

He noted that this pandemic shutdown is an opportunity to turn to God.

#CERSHOW

“God is giving you the time; he’s giving you the time, to get closer to Him, to become familiar with Him,” he said on Friday.

According to the Christian Post, the rapper has had many public mishaps, from a drug overdose to various arrests – and in his short sermon, he said the tragedy is in fact what has brought him closer to God.

The media outlet says DMX, now 49, has never shied away from sharing his Christian faith and that he has turned from ‘vulgar’ music to recording songs talking about his Christianity, including “Lord Give Me a Sign” and “Damien.”

DMX said he woke up earlier in the day with “chills” and felt led to talk to his fans about the Bible.

“God put it on my heart to speak,” he said. “This is new to me. This is not what I do.”

He read from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8Ecclesiastes 3:16-17, and parts of Ecclesiastes 4.

“The best thing that we can hope for – the most important thing we can hope or pray for or ask for – is that our desires coincide with God’s will,” he said.

He urged his fans to learn to pray and not rely on the prayers of others: “Your own prayer will do a lot better than someone else praying for you.”

He encouraged them to receive Christ: “Whoever hasn’t given your life to Jesus yet, whoever hasn’t surrendered all the way … I’m going to walk you through that right now.” He then led his fans in prayer.

#CERSHOW

 

By not living for Christ, DMX said, people “miss out on so many blessings that He has for you.”

“Get into the Word,” DMX said. “It will make whatever you go through a lot easier to deal with.”

The Instagram Live video has since disappeared from his account, although copies of it are circulating on YouTubeChristian Headlines reports.

“We Need More Prayers In America, Not Less!” Donald Trump Orders For Reopening Of Churches In America

trump

In the wake of this novel COVID-19 pandemic, most churches around the world have been forced to close in order to adhere to the social distancing precaution. In a recent development, US President Donald Trump has ordered churches in America to open.

In his view, America needs more prayers and not less in order to combat this one of a kind difficult situation that has caught the world by surprise.

In his Press Briefing last Friday, the President ordered the Governors of the various States to allow the places of worship and synagogues to hold in-person worship services with immediate effect.

In his own words, he says;

“The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now, for this weekend. If they don’t do it, I will override the governors. Some governors have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential” but not churches, he said. “It’s not right. So I’m correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential. these are places that hold our society together and keep our people united,”

Though we are not too sure the mechanism that will be rolled out to ensure the safe gathering of saints, he suggested from his speech there is an appropriate guideline that will be laid down and be followed accordingly.

Pastor ‘heals’ coronavirus patient

FB_IMG_1586946472694

The founder of the Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry, Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin has reportedly healed a coronavirus (COVID-19) patient.

On 22nd May, 2020, in one of such interactive online services tagged “Dreams, Interpretations and Solutions, DIS”, which has since gone viral, Prophet Jeremiah received a video call from a middle-aged Californian woman, Tyeisha, who had been diagnosed with the COVID-19 disease and was being housed in a disease control isolation center.

On further conversation with the patient, Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin discovered that she had developed aggravating conditions such as:

– An inability to walk or use her legs, hence, restriction to bed and dependence on a wheelchair.
– Dependence on supplemental oxygen through Nasal Cannula (NC)
– A constant dry cough

The Man of God, Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin immediately got a leading to pray and call forth the patient’s healing.

He prayed with her, shortly and also asked her to provide a mantle for him to pray on. In minutes, and through video call, a woman who was bed ridden and clinging to dear life, fully reliant on machines and assistance, took off her Nasal Cannula and began to breath without supplemental oxygen!

While the online congregation was still reeling in shock and singing the praises of God, Tyeisha obeyed the command of the prophet and stood up, regaining use of her legs! She walked about her room and even to the corridor, where other patients and caregivers were shocked to see her.

Tyeisha is one of millions of COVID-19 patients, and her story has been changed, miraculously, thanks to the God of Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin. Distance cannot defeat God, and neither can this pandemic.
