The first session of Light Up Your World Digital Conference was equally as powerful as it was encouraging. If you missed it, or want to revel in the glory of all that was shared, read on for the best quotes and highlights of the night!
Pastor Ose Oyakhilome
“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein”
“You belong to the Lord, every one of us belong to the Lord. He made us, we are the work of His hand.”
“He is doing a great work. These are the last days. The harvest is ripe. And thank God for laborers like you and me, that are reaching out to people. Making the glorious gospel of God known to them. And these are the last days. He says the knowledge of the glory of God will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. And that’s the season. It’s a great season that our church is in right now. Don’t say oh I wish I was alive 5 or 10 years ago. This is the best time to be alive. A time to work with God. A time to do the Lord’s work, to work in God’s vineyard.”
“A ransom is a consideration that you pay to release a captive. Jesus was that ransom. He didn’t just pay for sin, he was a sin sacrifice.”
2 Corinthians 5:21
“For He hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him”
Bishop James Payne
In sharing his inspiring testimony of how God captured his heart, and the gospel changed him forever, Bishop Payne shared with listeners seven things he knows for sure in this life with Christ.
“Sin does not satisfy
‘For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth…’
There is life after this life
There is a hell
There is a Jesus, and he is real
The power of sin can be broken in your life.
‘And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.’
You can live a victorious life for Jesus, I am living proof. 50 years later, I’m still free”
Reverend Ray Okocha
“The name has been given to you, use the name and call on Jesus. Everything changes because you call the name of Jesus Christ”
“You see, He makes you His righteousness. Oh, thanks be unto God. Listen, no matter what the problem is, there will be good news.”
Reporting from the prayer room – Bishop James Payne
“People are getting saved, they’re rededicating their life to the Lord. And I never get tired of praying the prayer of salvation with people. And every one of them, the moment we pray that prayer, the spirit of God comes on them…. We’ve got some of the greatest prayer partners in the world. I want to thank Pastor Chris for hearing from God.
He definitely heard from God to have this 4-day conference and to bring people. I prayed with pastors on the phone that said ‘would you please pray for me and my church, that we would get back to winning the lost to Jesus. So, that’s what’s happening in the prayer room.”
