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.

GA Man Says God Healed Him of COVID-19 by Breathing into His Lungs- Christian Gospel Hype

Clay Bentley, of Rome, Georgia, tested positive for the coronavirus on March 6.

“So the doctors checked me and they said, ‘Wait a minute. We came in yesterday. You were in worse shape than you’ve been in since you’ve been in the hospital. And we come in here this morning and we don’t have hardly any fluid in your lungs at all,'” Bentley noted.

Two days later, he was released and sent home.
And that’s not all. Bentley suffered from rheumatoid arthritis before contracting the COVID-19 virus, and now he says that’s gone too.

“I mean it’s like he healed me of everything within me,” he said. “Jesus is still in the healing business. His word in your mouth will move mountains.”

Suzy Bentley’s mother passed away several years ago on March 17.  She says the enemy tried to tell her that she would lose her husband on that same date.  However, on that date, Bentley came home from the hospital.

More people have visited my church after Tracy’s marriage prophecy – Prophet Amoateng

img-e

After it was publicly made known that a man of God prophecied into the life of Tracy Ameyaw months before she walked down the aisle with her husband, Kennedy Osei, there has been an increase in the search of this man of God.

Located on the Spintex road, just behind the Goil Filling station, a man seen in a blue suit worn over a white shirt is spotted on a big signboard by the roadside. The church is Power of Worship International, and he calls the place Testimony City.

When the GhanaWeb team touched base at his church premises, not a lot of people were seen because the first service was over. A white marquee tent, the church auditorium, is seated on the big compound.

Also on the compound is a story building that houses offices of the senior pastor and other officials of the church.

The team was directed to the office of Prophet Daniel Amoateng, Founder and Leader of the Power of Worship International.

In the one-on-one exclusive interview, he opened up to the team for the first time after the whole Kency 2020 conversation on social media began.

Contrary to earlier reports that the prophecy was made two years ago, Prophet Amoateng says this was done on November 2, 2019.

When asked if there has been an increase in the number of people trooping into his church to experience the power of God, he answered yes.

“A couple of people have come to the church. But most of them that came, their friends had already told them about the church. So immediately the video came out, then they were like oh that your pastor, that your pastor…we have been here for only two years. But by the grace of God,…it keeps on growing,” Prophet Amoateng told GhanaWeb.

Don Moen Cuts Sod For $100,000 School Project For Orphanage In Ghana

Don-Moen-cut-sod-in-Ghana

The Don Moen and Friends Foundation has started a $100,000 school project for Royal Seed Home, an orphanage at Kwao Bondzie at Kasoa in the Central Region.

The project is to provide a conducive teaching and learning environment for the children, who currently walk for about seven kilometers from the orphanage to the nearest public school.

The American singer and producer of Christian worship music, Mr Donald James Moen, popularly known as Don Moen, and his friends, who visited the country for a music show last Saturday, cut the sod for the project to begin.

The project

When completed, the project will include a 12-classroom block for kindergarten to primary six, a dining hall and a kitchen, a library, an information communication technology (ICT) laboratory, a music study, a staff common room, and washrooms.

Briefing the financiers of the project, the contractor, Mr Ezekiel Ocloo, said: “it will take four months to put the whole building up and a month to put together the furniture and other finishing.”

That, he said, was to make it possible for the foundation to inaugurate and dedicate the school before the next academic year, in September 2020.

Mr Ocloo expressed optimism that the project would be completed within schedule as all funds and materials needed had been made available.

Speaking before the sod cutting, Mr Moen said the school project was his way of giving back to Ghana after having the opportunity to visit and perform his music on various platforms, including state shows for the past 13 years.

He told the gathering that giving back to society meant adding action to worship and as a worshipper, he did not only worship through music but also through giving.

As the lead support of the NGO, Mr Moen commended all his donors, including those in Ghana, for supporting a good cause and prayed that they would reap in multiple folds what they had given.

He pledged to continue to use his foundation to support the orphanage adding that “the next time it is going to be a $100 million project.

Urgent need

The founder and caretaker of the home, Mrs. Naomi Amoah, expressed her gratitude to the foundation for supporting the orphanage for the past 10 years.

She revealed that currently there was one person from the home pursuing his master’s degree at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), while 16 others were in various universities which placed a financial burden on the orphanage.

Mrs. Amoah, therefore, appealed to other benevolent individuals and corporate groups to come to the aid of the children with a means of transport, a standby generating set, computers, sanitary items, food, among other items.

Franklin Graham tells UK LGBTQ community he is not bringing a ‘hateful’ message

franklin-graham

Franklin Graham has invited the UK LGBTQ community to come and hear him preach as he denied that he was bringing a “hateful” message to the country in an upcoming tour.

Liverpool ACC has cancelled his forthcoming tour stop and London’s O2 told Newsweek that it would not host his event.

A spokesperson for the ACC said it had been “made aware of a number of statements” by Graham “which we consider to be incompatible with our values.”

“In light of this, we can no longer reconcile the balance between freedom of speech and the divisive impact this event is having in our city,” the spokesperson told the BBC in a statement.

They added: “We have informed the organizers of the event that the booking will no longer be fulfilled.”

A representative for the O2 toldNewsweek that it had never entered into an agreement with Graham to host an event there.

A petition calling on the O2 to refuse to host Graham’s London event has been signed by over 8,000 people.

The creator of the petition claimed that Graham “travels around the world telling tens of thousands of people that Satan runs the LGBT+ movement”.

People were invited to sign the petition to “send a clear message to this US hate monger that he is not welcome in London or the UK.”

“He persuades audiences that LGBT+ people don’t deserve to have families,” they said.

“He stands on stages in huge arenas warning people of the consequences of being gay, threatening impressionable young people with the ‘flames of hell’.

“In short, he spends a lot of time and money telling the world that our love is a sin and encouraging those who want to hurt us.”

In a statement on Facebook, Graham – son of the late evangelist Billy Graham – denied that his message was one of hate.

“It is said by some that I am coming to the UK to bring hateful speech to your community. This is just not true. I am coming to share the Gospel, which is the Good News that God loves the people of the UK, and that Jesus Christ came to this earth to save us from our sins,” he said.

“The rub, I think, comes in whether God defines homosexuality as sin. The answer is yes. But God goes even further than that, to say that we are all sinners—myself included.” 

He continued: “My message to all people is that they can be forgiven and they can have a right relationship with God. That’s Good News. That is the hope people on every continent around the world are searching for.

“In the UK as well as in the United States, we have religious freedom and freedom of speech. I’m not coming to the UK to speak against anybody, I’m coming to speak for everybody. The Gospel is inclusive. I’m not coming out of hate, I’m coming out of love.

“I invite everyone in the LGBTQ community to come and hear for yourselves the Gospel messages that I will be bringing from God’s Word, the Bible. You are absolutely welcome.”
