KLWC2014 Session

[6:26am, 11/20/2014] Godwin Inimfon: Day 2 at KLWC – Evening Session Part 1

It was another fantastic night at this conference and I believe it can only get bigger and better! The auditorium was almost full even before the service started; it was evident that nobody wanted to miss out on anything that was going to be taking place tonight.

Rev. Emmanuel Awom stepped on the pulpit and led us in an opening prayer; We could feel the presence of God in the auditorium through the powerful prayer sessions. KLWC Praise Team led the congregation in a glorious praise session; they sent the whole place into a ”dancevanganza” with powerful Igbo songs and oh my, if you missed it, you truly missed a lot! Everyone was in such high spirit as we danced to the superb African praise happily with joy in our hearts; it was awesome indeed.

As the praise team concluded the session which so many did not want to come to an end, Rev. Nath Anwumabelem the anchor person for the evening welcomed our Big Daddy and Big Mummy with a wonderful smile and great words of commendation. He also welcomed all the other guests present at the conference.

Following up after Rev. Nath’s introduction, TREM Zone 8 choir ministered different songs from past years and songs in various languages. It was such a beautiful ministration. Truly, in the presence of God there is fullness of joy. Read more in the part 2 of the evening session here.
[6:27am, 11/20/2014] Godwin Inimfon: Day 1 – Opening Session of KLWC 2014

The 25 th anniversary of the Kingdom Life World Conference (KLWC) kicked-off at about 4:30 with the opening prayer led by Reverend Sunkanmi Obisesan. The auditorium was packed full with people from different part of Nigeria as well as other parts of the world. After the prayer, the Mass Choir took us through some series of praise and sent the crowd into an amazing music session.

Rev. Maxwell Gbiniji thereafter welcomed and acknowledged the presence of the resident pastor of the Headquarters church (Bishop Peace Okonkwo aka Big Mummy) and the Presiding bishop of TREM (Bishop Mike Okonkwo aka Big Daddy). The bishop came up to the altar and officially declared the conference “OPEN”.

Afterwards the mass choir ministered in the theme song titled “God and God alone” which threw the crowd into excitement as they enjoyed the song and danced to it. The anchor, Rev Maxwell reminded the crowd about the raffle draw and the various prizes. He also reminded us of the upcoming Big League Summit and the Pastors’ Session which would take place during the morning sessions of the conference.

The “XSTEEM DANCERS” with their thrilling moves wowed the crowd dancing to different songs in different steps. What can we say of the Evergreen Evangel Voices? The ladies were elegant in their Red Dresses and the men looked very dashing in grey suits and red bow ties. Beautifully dressed, with their melodious voices and a fresh anointing, they led us through another glorious session of music.

Mr. Abraham, a saxophonist from USA led us into worship as he played his saxophone so beautifully. The Presiding Bishop then introduced the guest speaker for the night in the person of Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo.
[6:32am, 11/20/2014] Godwin Inimfon: Day 1 – The Word by Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo

The second part of the program ushered in a great man

Ashimolowo who is the pastor of KICC and the first speaker for the conference. The title of his message was: Maximizing the Grace of God.

He started by saying that “Grace is a blessing from God, it gives the opportunity to operate with new strength and it is an unlimited ability”. The first scripture was taken from the book of 1cor 15:10. Grace brings favor in your life. He further made us to understand that “Favor brings Flavor and it empowers destiny, using the stories of Hannah and Ruth to buttress his point.

Grace comes under different functions, and they are: the Grace of Ministry, Grace of Victory and the grace to be a savior. He concluded by talking about the importance of sowing of seeds – Seed sowing brings forth

progress. We were all encouraged to adopt the spirit of “seed sowing” because without sowing one cannot reap. He made an altar call of people who wanted to sow seeds ranging from $5,000 (Millionaire status seed), $1,000 (A thousand times better than your father seed) and $240 (24 hours turn around in the person’s life) which the church responded to in large numbers.

A powerful profession from the service: “I’m a barrier breaker, I’m a line crosser”

After such a powerful message, The choir led us into a praise session as the pledges and general offering was being collected after which was time for the raffle draw. Pastor Segun Akingbuwa of TREM Akoka was invited to draw the tickets and announce the winners.

pressing iron, a fridge and the first winner of one of the

announced

auditorium as at when their ticket number was called, were advised to present their ticket anytime during the conference to redeem their prize.

Bishop Walter Mbamara, the resident pastor of TREM Ijesha, brought the service to a close by sharing the benediction. It was indeed a beautiful start to the 25th Kingdom Life World Conference.

We encourage you not to miss any of the sessions during the conference. You can always watch the sessions live at http://www.klwc.org. Don’t miss out on this great move of God.
[6:34am, 11/20/2014] Godwin Inimfon: Day 2 – Big League Summit 1

It was indeed another beautiful day in God’s presence.

The opening prayer was led by Rev. Emeka Nwajagu, after which the praise team for the morning session sang wonderful songs which the congregation danced and responded to. Thereafter, they ministered a special song titled ‘God is Able’.

The anchor for the session in the person of Pastor Victor Ebhaleme from TREM Ejigbo welcomed everyone to the session and introduced some of the dignitaries present at the service. The Young People’s Choir dressed in black with a touch of red and other colors ministered a song titled ”Ebezina”. We were led into an awesome worship session! Worship is indeed food for the spirit.

The presiding Bishop, Dr. Mike Okonkwo rounded up the worship session with the song ”Awesome God” and thereafter reminded us that we are ”Barrier Breakers and Line Crossers”. He further talked about the awesomeness of yesterday’s service and encouraged everyone to get the tape because no matter what we heard during the session we cannot truly grasp everything so there is need for us to hear the message again.

The preacher for the morning was Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo (KICC Church). Before starting the word he prayed and then thanked the Bishop and his wife for giving him the platform to teach on finance. He titled his message 18 Characteristics of Kingdom Billionaires.

He started by asking the following questions:

Why are some people rich and others poor? Why are some so wealthy and some barely have enough to go by? He answered by saying “it’s because some take time to make visionary plans while others do not. God’s intention and desire for us as his children is to live in prosperity. When the church did not take the open doors set before them he set ‘windows’ before people like Bill Gates”.

Here are some points to note from his message:

If you can’t survive for three months without your salary then you are poor. Don’t judge yourself by what you are consuming but by what you invest. Money is flowing; that’s why it’s called ”currency”. Some things that limit us from financial prosperity are Habit, Demonic Activity, Peer Group, Laziness. There is no secret to financial success; people don’t just put them together and use them. We must know how to read the word of God, honor it and use it. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.

How to become a Kingdom Billionaire

1. Dream Great Dreams: all the people who make waves in the financial world always dream big. Dreaming big is the first step to financial breakthrough. Your dream has to be bigger than you; up to the point that it is a challenge.

Every time God wants to prosper a man he makes him face a challenge he cannot overcome. Dreaming big means you have to change your platform as well as your level. Great dreams means defining your dreams (ask yourself questions of what you want to do at every point in time). Poverty is a mindset. There is a point in life where money births money.

2. Be passionate about what you do. 3. Find and develop your unique gifting/ability 4. See yourself as self-employed: be so passionate that you see yourself as self-employed even if you don’t work for yourself. 5. Be committed to excellence. 6. Develop a clearer sense of directions; set goals to hit the targets you have set before you. 7. Have a money mission (Prov. 1:22). Money mission for any believer is for the promotion of the kingdom of God. To bless your family and yourself, to bless the household of faith and to touch the needy people. 8. Refuse the thoughts of failure, ”failure is an event not a person”

Again, like yesterday he talked about the importance of seed sowing and made a call for people to sow a seed of $ 100 which the church responded to very quickly. He advertised some of his books and took some questions from the audience which he answered to. Afterwards Bishop Mike Okonkwo called for the general offering.

Rev. Moses brought the service to a close by taking the benediction.

The turnout for this morning was awe
[6:37am, 11/20/2014] Godwin Inimfon: Day 2 – Evening Session Part 2 –The Word by Dr. Mensa Otabil

The congregation filled with so much excitement and expectation as the Presiding Bishop introduced the speaker for the evening session, Dr. Mensah Otabil, a multiple guest speaker at the Kingdom Life World Conference, a renowned man of God and the founder of International Central Gospel Church. The crowd cheered and applauded him as he stepped on the pulpit majestically dressed. He complimented the Bishop and His wife as well as the church because according to him not many churches allow the truth to be preached undiluted.

Proceeding to the word, Dr. Otabil titled his message “Discerning the Voice of God”. He started

explaining that God speaks to us in different ways. He made us understand that God leads us from within us (through the Holy Spirit) and not from outside us. He also enumerated five factors that affect decision making which are;

Expert opinion Financial consideration The majority advice or opinion Common sense Perception in one’s spirit

He stressed that the most important way to discern the voice of God is by being attentive to God and following whatever sign he presents to us just as we follow the signals of the traffic light.

He enumerated some spiritual ways of discerning the voice of God.

The word Recognizing a spiritual witness Your spiritual conviction A spiritual burden A spiritual perception The spiritual testimony

He did not hesitate to emphasize that in the midst of all these, the best way to know God’s voice is by listening, discerning and learning to follow his voice. Read more in part 3 of the evening session here

[6:45am, 11/20/2014] Godwin Inimfon: Day 2 – Evening Session Part 3 –The Word by Bishop Tudor Bismark

After the word by Dr. Mensa Otabil, the Lagos Zone 4 choir ministered two powerful songs titled “I Am More Than a Conqueror” and “Sing and Clap Your Hands” which thrilled the congregation and left them cheering loudly. To lead the congregation into worship, Brother Abraham from Atlanta ministered beautifully with his saxophone. The whole atmosphere was charged up and ready to receive more of the word of God. Soon after, Bishop Mike introduced the second speaker in the person of Bishop Tudor Bismark popularly known as the Lion of Zimbabwe in the TREM world.

He preached on a message he titled “Manifest”. He emphasized that our generation is about to harvest a prophecy so we cannot afford to lag behind; we must be ready to receive it. Romans 13:2 served as a reference as he explained that we must cast off darkness in order to excel in the spirit. He stated that the works of the law subtract from man’s ability and gives evil the chance to manipulate the human mind. Nevertheless, God’s plan for us will always be manifested in our lives according to his word no matter the odds or inabilities presented to us.

He encouraged us to never let prosecution or doubt fill our hearts because in the midst these vices, God’s word will always manifest. He said that we should be careful not to involve ourselves in any work of darkness in order not to thwart the manifestation of God’s word. After his preaching, he encouraged people to redeem the pledges they had made during the previous evening and this morning’s session.

It was indeed an awesome time in God’s presence!

The raffle draw continued with Deacon Anifowoshe coordinating the session. Some of the prizes that were won included a plot of land, a pressing iron and a washing machine.

Rev Sola Kehinde brought the service to a close with the benediction and urged everyone to be early for the morning session the next day . Shalom!!

It was the second day of the Big League Summit and everyone came very expectant. Pastor Kalu opened this great event for us by praying fervently for the success of the service. The KLWC Praise Team led us in the praise session with melodious songs which left us dancing and praising God. Believe me; it was very thrilling to the soul. Jessica, a solo singer, ministered beautifully as she took us to another level of worship.

The Bishop, in his usual practice, introduced the speaker for the session – Bishop Tudor Bismark.

He spoke on how to deal with deficits affecting our various businesses. He stressed that to grow a business trust is very essential and compulsory because as a business man, one must have a steady network that you have built over the years that trust and can vouch for you.

Bishop Mike Okonkwo added his voice to the speaker’s by encouraging young people especially to develop an attitude of volunteering as this can be a huge step in being discovered.

After such an awesome session, the Zone 7 choir sang a beautiful song titled “I AM” and as the ministration was going on everyone gave their offering.

Rev.Ohio Simire closed the service with the benediction.
[6:55am, 11/20/2014] Godwin Inimfon: Day 3 – Evening Session Part 1

The third day of KLWC started with an opening prayer led by Pastor Iduvu Anthony at about 5:00pm. Evangel voices took over the podium with powerful worship songs that moved the church as the congregation stood to worship God, then led us into a short praise session that left the congregation wanting more.

Afterwards, Pastor Anthony came up to appreciate and recognize the presence of “Big Daddy” Bishop Mike Okonkwo and “Big mummy” Bishop Peace Okonkwo. Thereafter, he introduced the Zone 5 choir, with ladies dressed in dazzling multi-colored outfits and the gentlemen in black. They warmed the church with their sweet melodious voices.

Big daddy then came up to introduce the first speaker of the night, Bishop Tudor Bismark. The Presiding Bishop encouraged everyone to be attentive to these sessions as it is not enough to just be in attendance at the conference.

[6:56am, 11/20/2014] Godwin Inimfon: Day 3 – Evening Session Part 2 –The Word by Bishop Tudor Bismark

Bishop Tudor Bismark mounted to pulpit and spoke on the message he titled: “Stretch”.

Scripture: Gen. 48:14, Exo. 14:16, Isa. 54:2.

He said that in order to be chosen and raised by God we have to be ready to stretch beyond our comfort zone and expand our territories. Apart from the things we usually do, we should not hesitate to acquire other skills that stretch us. The reason people don’t stretch is because they are lazy and don’t want to move out of their comfort zone. He encouraged the congregation to never be limited by what tradition and culture have decreed, we should dare to move beyond where we are standing.

He explained that even when athletes stretch before running and this is simply to enable their muscles to be more flexible so it doesn’t get strained or injured while running. Another reason why we must stretch, he explained, is to inspire others to stretch just like we have done.

After the preaching, the Zone 1 choir took the service to another level as they minister an afro beat version of the theme which was so amazing! They got the first standing ovation of the night with the crowd cheering and screaming. Bishop was truly blessed by their ministration that insisted that they minister at the musical concert, Zamar, on Friday.

[6:58am, 11/20/2014] Godwin Inimfon: Day 3 – Evening Session Part 3 –The Word by Dr. Mensa Otabil

After such a powerful ministration by the Zone 1 choir, Bishop Mile introduced the second speaker for the evening; Dr. Mensa Otabil.

He preached on a message he simply titled “Faith” and took his foundation scriptures from 1 st John 5:4-5.

He explained the concept of faith with a cheque. He likened us having faith to receive something from God to a cheque given to a person who needs money. He made us understand that if that cheque which is the “substance” of the person’s hope to get some money was lost, he will never receive the money. So also if our faith to receive from God was lost, we can’t receive from him. He further explained that just as a bank will only honour a cheque because it came from them, so also God honours faith because it comes from his word (Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God Rom. 10:17)

He emphasized that no one can help a person get faith. The only way is by spending time with God and his word. No matter how anointed the preacher is, he can never be more powerful than the word of God. He used this medium to explain that to receive from God is not about how many anointed men of God lay hands on you but about holding on to your faith and the word of God. In his words, “God doesn’t respond to the desperation of your need, he responds to your faith which is developed through his word”

He concluded by emphasizing three things that are important to the working of faith:

Never drop the word Never drop the substance (Faith) Never drop the exceedingly great promises of God

This was indeed a word from God.

The raffle draw continued after the offering was taken and announcements made. Prizes for the day included an electric cooker, LCD flat screen TV and a plot of land in Lagos.

Finally the evening session came to an end with Rev Segun Akingbuwa taking the benediction.
[7:05am, 11/20/2014] Godwin Inimfon: Day 4 – Big League Summit 3 –Part 1

The service started at about 9:00 am with Pastor Austin Pipi taking the opening prayer. Praise session was led by the KLWC praise team and thereafter, the South-East Zone 1 choir ministered to us in two power packed songs. The anchor person for the morning session, Rev. Ibe Kemakolam welcomed everyone officially to third day at the Big League Summit. He also welcomed the resident Pastor of TREM International Headquarters, Bishop Peace Okonkwo whom he referred to as his “Biggest Mummy” with her ever radiant smile.

Mr. Ayoola Emmanuel Olanrewaju was the first speaker for the day. He spoke on the topic he titled “Decision Making”.

Some of the points raised in his message are:

Exceptional success has its season: Study the behavior of your competitors to be exceptional. Keep moving forward; if you stand still your competitors will catch you and push you back. Proper preparation is key for success Do your homework! Calculate well, know your right and know who you are. Apply wisdom in all you do A decision is a covenant which should not be taken lightly. Find out what it takes to be the best. Ask the right questions you will know the right way to handle things. Be a standard, a benchmark. Prepare yourself with answers. Work at being worthy, be dedicated and constantly develop yourself. Choose your friends wisely. Drop any idol in form of habit. In the end, choose to be successful.
[7:08am, 11/20/2014] Godwin Inimfon: Day 4 – Big League Summit 3 –Part 2

The speaker for the second segment of the programme was Pastor Binta and her message was focused on getting to the top of the career run. She spoke on the topic she titled the “C-Suite”

She explained that the right qualifications are the first and most essential ingredients for getting to the top of the career run. She encouraged students to start from their universities, aim for scholarships and get involved extra circular activities which will help in developing soft skills.

She emphasized that you must have the right attitude to achieve your aim because your attitude can give you an edge and make you an extraordinary person. She further mentioned that you must read not just for your trade but for knowledge as well. You need to really sharpen your skills and constantly review your plan because things can always change and your plan might not even be the right way to go. She talked about people who are superior in their workplace and emphasized the need to be good to their subordinates as it might backfire on them if they are unable to display emotional intelligence.

She also emphasized on the need to have a successor you have trained and can be trusted.

Here are some key points noted to getting the C-Suite:

Have the right degree. Start from now; Start well, grow and finish strong. Be a person of integrity and expertise Get good writing skills. Hard Work: you must work hard to embrace success (Prov. 21:5). Right Attitude: your attitude determines the altitude. Constant retooling and up skilling: professional certifications from the right or relevant organizations or bodies. It’s better for you to get your qualifications and not need it, than need it and not have it. You must have a vision: what do I want to achieve? Where do I want to be? Execution of your plan is very essential; Step up, speak up, Ask politely. Establish and retain an impeccable and right ways to get the answers or results. Accept responsibilities, expect accountability. Team Spirit: you must be a good follower before you become a good leader. Be willing to serve, teach and work together. Lean against the right ladder Professionalism at all time is important. Let your word be your bond. You must be seen to be fair and impartial, have multi-tasking abilities. Have marketing skills; be accountable People management is a necessary skill Be able to draw up a budget, check, double check and triple check before signing documents on money. Be emotionally intelligent. Seek first to understand, before you seeking to be understood. Demonstrate confidence and great work capacity. Nurture relationship with every one (your superior, peers and subordinate). Mentoring is key: someone who can teach you and help you grow. Strong communication ability is important Appraise your life after getting to the C-Suite: was it worth it after all? Hire people smarter than you; surround yourself with smart people. Delegate, remain accountable, but avoid micro managing. Share the praise: it’s a “we” team, but take the blame Give back to the society, teach all you know, share. Tough times don’t last but tough people do.

After such motivating words, Pastor Kingsley took the offering and the Benediction was taken by Rev Greg Obiagu.
