Study the word of God with Pastor Chris: WordFest 2 kicks off
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome recently kicked off the second season of his WordFest program. The first one ran from May to June earlier this year.
This second season is slated to last 24 days and will end with a WordFest Extravaganza on October 31st. Details of the event have yet to be disclosed.
WordFest is a special festival of meditation on God’s word, and the concept is that existing and new subscribers to the Pastor Chris Digital Library can get free access to divine messages from Pastor Chris Oyakhilome through the WordFest program.
Subscribers will be able to watch, listen to and meditate on a specifically selected message every day, as each day has a new theme.
The theme of day eight was “Substitution (Part 1).”
Along with the daily message comes a study guide, which simplifies the meaning of the divine words.
According to the LoveWorld Nation, WordFest’s purpose is to build up and strengthen the faith of God’s people during this time of adversity that the world is facing.
You can sign up for the Pastor Chris Digital Library and take part in WordFest 2020 here. Lots of believers have already joined the online event and are sharing avatars of their participation on social media, using the hashtag #WordFest2.
The first season culminated with a 24-hour live broadcast called WordFest Extravaganza with Pastor Chris and some special guests. Testimonies, exhortions and divine messages were also part of the show.
The Year of Perfection
The second season of WordFest takes place in the Month of Proclamation.
Every month has a theme in the LoveWorld community, and this year, Chris Oyakhilome has, so far, led his congregation through the Month of Songs (February), the Month of Knowledge (March), the Month of Continuing Fasting and Praying (April), the Month of Opening (May), the Month of Prayer (June), the Month of Productivity (July), the Month of Recovery (August) and the Month of Wisdom (September).
The first theme of this Year of Perfection was February’s Month of Songs, where the Christ Embassy congregation was lifted to a higher spiritual level through music.
That month, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome also joined his long-time friend Pastor Benny Hinn in Houston, Texas for a special broadcast of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s “Your LoveWorld” shows.
The coronavirus’ grip on the world
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 again for a Global Day of Prayer against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show was a massive success, attracting 3 billion online viewers.
Pastor Chris continues his prayers
In May, the Month of Opening, the pastor 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.”
Christ Embassy members spread the word of the Gospel
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.
In September, the Month of Wisdom, the LoveWorld Nation started building a LoveWorld Medical Center in Nigeria.
This month is the Month of Proclamation, and except for the WordFest, Chris Oyakhilome has also continued his “Your LoveWorld with Pastor Chris” prayer week.
At the beginning of the Month of Proclamation, Christ Embassy members in Nigeria went out in the streets to distribute Rhapsody of Realities to residents.
Rhapsody of Realities is Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s daily devotional.
