CHRISTMAS MESSAGE 2015

Season’s greetings in the name of God Almighty, His Son Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

It is with a heart full of thanksgiving and happiness that I express my profound gratitude to God Almighty, the Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, for His immeasurable love, kindness, mercy and care. I also thank Him in a very special way for irrigating us with showers of numerous blessings. As the Psalmist sings: “O taste and see that the LORD is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!” (Psalm 34:8).

If you look around you in your family, organization, town and country, you will discover that many people lost their lives this year. Among the dead are the old and the young, including babies. But it has pleased the Lord our God to preserve our lives, thereby making it possible for us to experience yet another Christmas and New Year.

THE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS

“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good tidings to the afflicted; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion--to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.”(Isaiah 61:1-3). The above bible passage is talking about our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His mission on earth. I plead with you to sincerely by faith claim the promises in that passage.

The birth of Christ, the way He was wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger in the midst of animals have shown us the humility, mystery and the unpredictability of God and that whether a child is born in Nigeria, London, U.S.A or in the moon, is not very important, what is important is the great BLESSING OF GOD upon that child.

Christmas means Salvation, holiness and Righteousness. It is a special period when wise people spend their time sincerely/faithfully worshipping/thanking God for his goodness and spending time/having fellowship with God’s children, family members and relatives. It is also a time to remember and help the sick, the poor and the less privileged in society.

Please my friend I repeat, do not join those who misuse it rather use it to worship God and when you come back from church stay at home, think deeply about your relationship with God, about your life, how you spent the present year, and spend time with your family/relatives and plan very well with prayers for the New Year especially in this type of world where there is much UNCERTAINTY.

SPECIAL GREETINGS

I would like to greet everyone, especially those who recognize the fact that they are created by God and as such, must trust, obey and respect their Creator. I equally wish to commend all children of God and all men/women of goodwill, who still believe in Salvation, and who practice holiness and righteousness in a world that is stinking with iniquity and abominations.

HEZEKIAH UNIVERSITY

On a thanksgiving note, I share with you the testimony of Hezekiah University, the first and only private university in Imo State. Hezekiah means the strength of God and this university only came into existence by the strength/power of God, in consonance with the name Hezekiah. Although I encountered challenges, but my God gave me victory. By the experience of establishing this university, I will confidently tell you that God is a faithful God. So no matter the challenges you may be passing through, put your whole trust in God, be steadfast, it will one day be solved.

My beloved friend, if you are in any type of AUTHORITY/LEADERSHIP, good governance, happiness, welfare and satisfaction of those under you should be your priority, because if you take good care of them they would not only wish you well, support, respect/obey you, they would always pray for you. Do not join those who love money more than their lives and the lives of others. Be encouraged by what King Solomon said in the Holy Bible “A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold. A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death, than the day of birth.” (Proverbs 22:1, Ecclesiastes 7:1).

SPECIAL WISHES/PRAYER: May you experience the fullness of the joy of Christmas before, during and after the celebrations. Also, may the New Year bring you closer to God in salvation, holiness and righteousness. May you experience in the new year many answered prayers, satisfaction, success, progress, prosperity, good health and above all eternal life and a life free of sin. I sincerely thank you for all the good things you have done for God, mankind and me this year. My dear friend, May the Most High God I serve bless and reward you greatly through His only son Jesus Christ. Once again I humbly wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
