‘Rhapsody Convention’ Awakens Spirit of Patriotism in Edo State


Talk about a devotional with a difference. A lot has come to life through the number one devotional in the world, Rhapsody of Realities. The book has inspired readers worldwide and has sparked up excitement in the hearts of individuals who have been charged up through this book to effect a positive change in their world.

The book authored by Rev Chris Oyakhilome has lots of deeds credited to its name and another has just been added to that list. In a country on the brink of division with tension, fear , vendetta, hate and terror spreading rapidly, Rhapsody of Realities has gone to rescue the situation by stirring up the Spirit of Patriotism in the hearts of Nigerians especially in Benin, Edo State Nigeria.

Christ Embassy Benin Zone 3’s ‘Rhapsody Convention‘ was a colourful ceremony, inspired by patriotism and a conviction concerning the efficacy of the Gospel in societal change. The program was attended by 7,000 people in 57 viewing centre.

In every centre, the congregation came adorned in the rich and colourful attires of the Nigerian people, celebrating the rich and diverse cultural heritages of the nation. The event did not only celebrate the uniqueness of Nigerian culture but also kicked off the ReachOut Nigeria 2016 Campaign in the zone.

Exhilarating cultural performances, a short stage play, music and poetic presentations in the Yoruba, Hausa, Igbo, Ishan, Bini and Isoko languages, made it a memorable experience for all. One of many high points was the reading of the Messenger Angel in these native dialects. Participants were elated to know their partnership makes it possible for locals to receive the Word in their own dialects. For Mrs Ayo Osazuwa, hearing the devotional read in her native Bini dialect strengthened her resolve as a partner.

The congregation was furthered educated on the strategic significance of the ReachOut Nigeria 2016 Digital Campaign through an interactive and insightful talk show and a video promo. Emphasising the uniqueness of the RON 2016 Digital Campaign, the panellists informed the congregation of practical steps towards spreading into every man’s device.

Many  ardent readers of the #1 daily devotional shared their Rhapsody stories before the day ended in a session of ‘Acrobatic praise’, led by Brother Sheriff and the CE Siluko 1 choir. It was all joy and celebration in the Word of God.

As we anticipate a better Nigeria filled with peace, unity and love, Rhapsody of Realities, the number one evangelistic tool of Christ Embassy and some other ministries worldwide, has gone and is still going the extra mile in achieving God’s given mandate- to preach the message of hope, peace and love to the world, reconciling them to God and revealing to them their true identity in Christ, making disciples of Jesus all over the world.
