Thanksgiving 2018 | Praise Reports

One of the major transformations that has occurred in my life this year is the facility I have now to allow Christ to reach others through me. I have learned to make myself available, each time I have an opportunity. Now, I realize that there is such a facility to present Christ even to Muslims. Among all those whom I had the privilege to share the gospel with, unless I’m mistaken, only three resisted and maybe four argued because of what they thought was true about God. Because of the instructions His Excellency gave in the beginning of the year, to emphasize on evangelism, I have learned, and am still learning not to reason or to care about anything when I the have opportunity. Thank you so much for teaching me God’s priorities.

Thank you so much for the passion for theology that you transmit to me; thank you for the desire to learn and received for others. I used to think theology was meant for Bible schools and I didn’t like theology at all. I am so grateful to God for discovering and continuing to discover what it is in reality: something I cannot even compare with what I thought it was before.

I am thankful for the beautiful things we received at the Mothers of Nations seminar. I understood that I do not need to wait to have a big capital to start a business and multiply my source of income. I recently had a business idea from a very unusual source and I started with very little capital. In spite of that, the earnings I made in a week are far above what I initially invested. I had nothing when I took my commitment for ISM 2018, but everything came from that business by the grace of God. Also, during the 72 days of Awe and Wonder, the same period during which a multi-national company employed me last year, my contract was renewed with better conditions and my salary increased.

I am so grateful to God for the series “Exercise Our True Liberty” by Dr. Annie Smith. I am learning to exercise my liberty in Christ, independent of the external happenings. There is now such a peace in my interaction with my family members, who in the past were so hostile with me because of the Gospel. Today, even my Father listens to all that I say, and my mum would ask me to pray for her whenever she gets worried, especially since her own mother passed away, three years ago. They are in peace each time they see me. This peace is experienced in all my surroundings. To my surprise, even at my work place, those who used to see me like an obstacle have completely changed in their attitude towards me.

I thank you so much for the opportune help, for divine health, and preservation we have experienced in my family throughout this year. Thank you so much for the love and life I received from you, my spiritual parents. Thank you for the training, the education, and the initiation to communicate them to others. I am so grateful for the Man, the Message and the Mandate. It is a great privilege for me to be in the center of God’s will.

Dear parents in the Lord, thank you so much for the precious gift you are to me. I love you so much.

I express my gratitude for the ongoing mind shift operating in me thanks to the Gospel of Christ, thanks to the teachings of Drs Shawn and Annie Smith. Your teachings are bringing us into the highway of the thoughts of the Father, elevating our minds to think over, above and beyond the immediate, to think above the appearance of things, and usher us into the shared communion and life we have with the Godhead in the Son Christ Jesus.

 I’m just starting the journey, the discovery of the intimacy provided by Christ Jesus for me to enjoy the full potency, care, love and the presence of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. And it’s only as a result of the ceaseless repetition, explanation and exposure of the Gospel of Christ to us that we are discovering a life such as this; or rather, that we are discovering Life.

 I express my gratitude to the Apostolate because since my encounter with the Word of God on Sunday, January 3, 2016, my life has never been the same again. My life has got a meaning and a purpose, which is gradually opening up to me.

Thank you, Your Excellency, for your love,

Thank you, Your Excellency, for your care,

Thank you, Your Excellency, for ceaselessly believing in our destiny,

Thank you, Your Excellency, for your prayers for us and our loved ones,

Thank you, Your Excellency, for your words of preservation, affirmation and confirmation,

Thank you, Drs. Shawn and Annie Smith.

In Christ.

Je voudrais attribuer des actions de grâce à Dieu pour avoir expérimenté sa parole par-dessus toute expression.

 Lors d’un enseignement de la femme de Dieu sur la pratique de notre liberté en Christ Jésus, elle a dit que la participation en Christ n’est pas passive mais active. Dieu prend plaisir à un cœur qui croit. Nous ne devons pas vivre sans rien croire du tout. Dieu se manifeste en Dieu, ce qui veut dire, c’est lorsque tu demeures dans la parole reçue et la parole en toi qu’elle se manifeste, il faut la recevoir continuellement.  Ces paroles m’ont pénétrées et immédiatement j’ai pris conscience de la passiveté dont je faisais preuve vis-à-vis de ce que je recevais comme enseignements. Je suis rentrée chez moi ce soir là et j’ai décidé d’utiliser ces paroles, de m’en revêtir, de communier avec elles et depuis ce jour, je n’ai cessé de voir ses fruits tangibles se bousculer dans ma vie. Durant cette même période, elle nous a rappelé que nous sommes enrichies de toutes choses, nous devons le reconnaître chaque jour. Elle a également déclaré que nous allons expérimenter la provision qui ne vient pas pour combler un besoin, mais des provisions qui s’entassent les unes sur les autres, la grâce qui s’accumule sur la grâce, faveur sur faveur. Ces paroles ont déclenché un processus continue de bousculade financière dans ma vie, directement je suis entrée dans l’expérience du “uperperiseo, the Much more of grâce” j’ai été propulsée au delà du “juste assez et je suis entrée dans le ” plus qu’assez”

J’ai commencé à voir l’argent venir de partout pour entrer en ma possession, des sommes étranges, que je n’avais jamais touché auparavent se retrouver si facilement entre mes mains, en plus de cela, c’était la période des 72 jours de merveilles et prodiges.  En fait c’est un cumul de paroles déclarées sur moi. J’ai été repositionnée dans mon entreprise, tel que l’homme de Dieu l’avait déclaré, disant que Dieu te donnera une position qui te fera avoir des opportunités de gagner de l’argent.

J’ai gagné un marché de 38 millions en un clin d’œil. Cela a eu des ramifications dans l’œuvre de Dieu, dans ma vie personnelle et dans ma famille. 

Toujours dans la même période des 72 jrs de merveilles et prodiges juste après CCI Garoua, L’homme de Dieu avait déclaré que “nous gagnerons la réputation selon laquelle toute personne sur qui nous imposons les mains est guérie.” alors que j’assistais à un évènement familial, l’une de mes grandes cousines m’a interpellé me demandant de prier pour sa fille qui aurait de très violentes migraines, et qu’on ne comprenait pas ce qu’elle avait, qu’elle avait peur de la perdre. Je me suis rapprochée de ma nièce et lui ai demandé ce qui n’allait pas. Elle me dit qu’on doit l’opérer parce qu’il y a une membrane qui pousse dans son cerveau, selon les résultats du scanner qu’elle avait fait. Alors je l’ai prise de côté et lui ai montré son unicité avec Christ, lui disant qu’il est impossible pour elle d’avoir ou même de souffrir des choses que Christ ne peut avoir en Lui et qu’on ne peut Lui attribuer. J’ai prié pour elle. Deux semaines plus tard environ, nous nous sommes retrouvées chez moi et je lui ai demandé ce qu’il en était, elle me dit, “Tantine on n’a plus rien vu”. Depuis ce jour là elle se porte à merveille. Aussi simple que ça !

Je rends grâce au Père qui a mis en moi les capacités de sa perfection et m’a donné l’opportunité d’expérimenter les paroles de L’homme de Dieu, la parole de Dieu.

Mon fils a fait un accident il y a quelques années et cela lui a causé un certain handicap aux genoux. Il était incapable de courir, de s’accroupir et même de marcher longuement. Après avoir reçu l’imposition des mains de l’Homme de Dieu, il a expérimenté l’entièreté parfaite. Il peut à présent jouer au football tel que l’Homme de Dieu l’avait prophétisé.

I’m 17 years old and I have been fellowshipping with Gospel of Christ Ministries for four years. I am highly privileged to write this praise report and share with you what the Father has done for me throughout this year.

In the month of February 2017, I was diagnosed of a certain recurring lung infection (one which I had previously suffered from some years ago), which the doctors couldn’t describe very well and for about eight months, I had been following a medical treatment that wasn’t made for that disease so it made things to go from bad to worse. I suffered pain in my bones, back, legs and I couldn’t even walk properly. I wasn’t going to school for quite a long time in 2017 and resumed school very late that year and just tried to cope with my lessons with the help of my sister.

I then started the new Academic year, 2018 and it was in that year that I had to write my Advanced Level exam, but still then, I could not follow up the classes normally because each time I would have crises and I was forced to leave the classroom.

In January 2018, when the Man of God declared “SURPASSING ALL”, I held on to that declaration and I believed in it. Before the end of January, all the symptoms had left my body. But in September this year, I started experiencing those symptoms again. During the ISM, on the first day, Dr. Shawn Smith prayed for those who were sick and I felt heat all over my body as all the symptoms were leaving. He later called for those who healed to come and give their praise reports and as I was coming up, he said, “The Lord has healed some of you and you still experience some symptoms that will want to make you believe that the sickness is still there; but the Father is telling you that he is taking the symptoms away.” I believed that. I have never doubted my healing and I began to experience wholeness till now. I can even wear high-hilled shoes, which I could not do before.

Also this year, in the month of July, I succeeded in my Advanced Level exam, despite the fact that I have been missing classes and some friends and teachers, even family members doubted I could make it. But I believed I could make it because Dr. Shawn Smith had told us that as sons of God, when we go in for something, we don’t ask ourselves whether we will succeed or not. We already know that we are going in victoriously. I would also like to thank God for this message that has been feeding us every day. It’s our source of joy. It has been the answer to all my questions throughout this year, and I keep on growing in it. I have just been having such a wonderful experience. The way it revitalizes me every day gives me assurance of who I am in Christ.

 I am 17 years old and have been in the ministry for four years. It is with immense joy and gratefulness that I seize this opportunity and privilege to share with you my praise report concerning the awesomeness of the Father in my life during this year of HUPERBALLO 2018.

I would like to start by thanking Him for the preservation of my family and I, for safety and wholeness throughout the year.

Secondly, the renewal of my sister’s health thanks to this life we found in the gospel we listen to at Gospel of Christ Ministries.

I can’t really imagine what our lives would have looked like without us encountering this “glad tidings of good things” because all I am thankful to God for this year came through the hearing of His word preached by His Excellency the Apostle Dr. Shawn Smith and Her Excellency the Apostle Dr. Annie Smith to whom I will forever be thankful for the love they show us and for their manner of expounding the mind of Christ to us with such clarity and truth.

The greatest thing that the Lord did for me is renewing my mindset. When I look back and compare, I discover that I am growing in the understanding of the things of God. Like Paul spoke about those who learn but never come to the understanding.

I used to allow myself to be disturbed by the things happening around me. I could get so demoralized by futilities and I can even say derailed most of the times. Glory be to God! The Man of God taught on “Learning to Practice the Imperatives.” He said, we do not simply adhere to this doctrine but we also practice it. He told us that as sons who are godly in nature we are to exhibit mastery over all circumstances. He mentioned that detaching yourself from what’s happening in the exterior world is mastery. From that day till now, I chose to practice those imperatives because I understood that I had been excluding God from the equation. I began to be more open to participate with Christ inside of me and got interested with the things that matter to God. I began to understand how much I am loved and that there is no other greater reason to live if it’s not for Christ. I understood my acceptance in the Godhead that is not even based on my actions. I have the constraint of His love from within and choose to exercise my glorious liberty in Christ.

Dr. Annie spoke about God’s capacity of perfection in us. She mentioned that, we are the righteousness of God unto the world; we are missionaries by which God entreats others. From the moment she said all this, I felt that assurance from within about the life I want and desire to live (consecrated to God).

This year, my view about others and myself was completely changed. I am so happy to know the purpose of my existence on earth, and that to look at myself and make any conclusion concerning myself, I have to look at Christ first and what I see in Him is what is true about me. In other words, I have understood the redefinition of my “I” as Paul explains in Galatians 2:20.

This thanksgiving Sunday, I’m thanking God for all the things He has unveiled to me by the Holy Spirit and all that He is still to unveil and bring to my perception. I will be grateful once more for the fact that He has made us (my mother, my sister and I) to be part of this family (GCM family). I will say thank you to God for my entrance into the university and for a new opportunity to see beyond the tip of my nose.

I will not forget to say thank you for the ability to give thanks and for the fact that I know Him.
