Pastor Chris declares December to be the Month of Thanksgiving
On the day before Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s 57th birthday, the Man of God held his monthly Global Communion Service, where he announced that December will be the Month of Thanksgiving.
The live broadcast started with several musical performances, one of them being by the LoveWorld superstar Sinach.
Towards the end of the Global Communion Service, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome explained the difference between giving thanks and the theme of December, thanksgiving.
“Giving thanks and thanksgiving are not the same. You have to know that they are not the same. Giving thanks is thanking the Lord, expressing your appreciation… Thanksgiving is a term that you find in the Old Testament, it is revealed to us in the Old Testament,” Chris Oyakhilome said.
“It is different from thanking God… Thanksgiving is a term that is applied to a ceremony, and it is a special right in which you have the combination of the following: worship, confessions, sacrifices of praise, and with the thanksgiving offering… It is always accompanied by a thanksgiving offering. So, it is all put together. You read it all the way from the Old Testament,” the famous pastor continued.
Pastor Chris’ Year of Perfection coming to an end
The Month of Thanksgiving marks the end of the Year of Perfection; a year that the world will never forget.
The entire world has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which is still raging, and Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his Christ Embassy congregation have found peace and comfort in more events than ever before.
The first theme of the Year of Perfection was February’s Month of Songs, where the Christ Embassy congregation was lifted to a higher spiritual level through music.
The Month of Songs was followed by March’s Month of Knowledge. That was celebrated with the official opening of the Engineering Faculty of the Benson Idahosa University’s new building in Benin City, Nigeria.
In 2015, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome donated $1 billion to the project.
The Month of Knowledge also marked the time where the coronavirus in earnest got a grip on the world.
The pandemic forced people and societies across the world to adjust their lives to a new reality consisting of social distancing, working from home and lots of alcogel.
At the end of March, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome teamed up with Pastor Benny Hinn for a Global Day of Prayer against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show was a massive success, attracting three billion online viewers.
Prayers for Lebanon in the Christ Embassy community
In May, the Month of Opening, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome hosted a three-day-long Global Fasting and Praying session.
June, which was the Month of Prayer, included even more prayer weeks and another Global Day of Prayer.
Then came July, the Month of Productivity, where the popular “Your LoveWorld with Pastor Chris” broadcasts continued, and the LoveWorld Nation announced an online Social Media Week.
According to LoveWorld, the purpose of the Social Media Week was to empower people to maximize the readily available technological tools for wealth creation, economic growth, career path interest and personal development in specific areas of interest.
The Social Media Week received praising words from Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, who called it “very powerful, enlightening and empowering.”
Shortly after the Social Media Week ended, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome announced that August would be the Month of Recovery.
At the beginning of August, Lebanon, which has a big Christian community, was hit by a tragic disaster. A huge explosion took place at the port of Beirut, killing at least 190 people, injuring 6,5000 and leaving about 300,000 people homeless.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and the LoveWorld community immediately started praying for the recovery of Lebanon and its people.
He and Pastor Benny Hinn ended August with a five-day-long Praise-A-Thon with special guests like Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Dan Willis, Pastor James Payne and Dr. Richard Roberts.
Still some Pastor Chris events left this year
In September, the Month of Wisdom, the LoveWorld Nation started building a LoveWorld Medical Center in Nigeria, and in October, the “Your LoveWorld with Pastor Chris” prayer series continued, while the second season of WordFest was initiated.
During the Month of Proclamation in October, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome continued his “Your LoveWorld with Pastor Chris” series.
The Month of Proclamation also saw the commencement of WordFest 2.
WordFest was a special festival of meditation on God’s word, and the concept was that existing and new subscribers to the Pastor Chris Digital Library could get free access to divine messages from Pastor Chris Oyakhilome through the WordFest program.
Subscribers were enabled to watch, listen to and meditate on a specifically selected message every day, as each day had a new theme.
According to the LoveWorld Nation, WordFest’s purpose was to build up and strengthen the faith of God’s people during this time of adversity that the world is facing.
In November, the Month of Praise, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome invited thousands of people from all over the world to Nigeria to participate in several LoveWorld events.
Those included the International Pastors’ and Partners’ Conference, the International Media Connectors’ Conference, the LoveWorld Exhibition, the International Teens Pastors’ & Leaders’ Conference, the IPPC Presidential Awards and LIMA Awards.
On December 1st, Chris Oyakhilome hosted another Global Day of Prayer, and yesterday, December 7th, he celebrated his birthday.
Later in December, he is doing his annual Christmas Eve Service and on December 31st, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome will announce the theme of 2021.
