On Sunday, April 12th, about half of the world's population joined the man of God, Reverend (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome, for a special Easter Sunday Service. Over 3.25 billion people from 227 countries participated in the service via all LoveWorld TV Networks, satellite/terrestrial TV stations, several radio stations and various internet platforms.
It was a special time to reflect on the significance of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The service was characterized by beautiful renditions in songs of praise and worship to God led by LoveWorld musicians. Prayers of thanksgiving to God were also offered and insightful teachings by Pastor Chris and Pastor Benny Hinn.
Pastor Chris emphasized the reality of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead, stating that the Jesus we talk about today is alive. He proceeded to teach extensively on the rapture of the Church, providing scripture-based answers to questions posed by viewers on the subject of the rapture. Reading from 1 Corinthians 15:51, 1Thesalonians 4:16-17 and the book of Revelation, he explained that the rapture of the church is real and God's people should be prepared for it. In a special exhortation, Pastor Benny Hinn, emphasized that the resurrection of Jesus, is the foundation of our lives as Christians. Reading from Hebrews 11:8-16, 1 Peter 1:1, and other scriptures, he established the truth that Christians are only sojourners in the earth. They hail from another kingdom which is the Kingdom of God. He then encouraged God's children to set their affections and focus on heavenly things.
In a special moment, Pastor Chris led the congregation in fervent prayers for Christians in different parts of the world who are being persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ. Full of the Holy Ghost and with compassion for the sick, he ministered healing to those afflicted in their bodies and several testimonies of divine healing were recorded. He led many to Christ, guiding them in the prayer of salvation. The special Easter Sunday Service with Pastor Chris, was a tremendous success and its unprecedented global impact will continue to resonate for generations to come.
