Thousands Experience Eight Days of Unprecedented Blessing at Word Explosion.

Bread of Life Church International (BLCI) experienced an explosive Word Explosion Conference that changed the lives of thousands of people as evidenced by the outpouring of unprecedented blessings God had in store for them in the year 2011. Moreover, it was the first time the conference was held at the Blessing Centre, for eight consecutive days from Sunday 28th August to Sunday 4th September 2011. Many contacted the never experienced, seen or happened unprecedented blessing which was the theme for the conference.

                                                      Bishop Joe Imakando, speaking to the congregation
When opening the conference BLCI presiding Bishop Joe Imakando promised the congregation that they would tap into unprecedented blessings as they were being ministered to at the conference. The Bishop dubbed the conference, the first fruit as it was the first conference to be held at the centre.
And when the Bishop preached from Deuteronomy 1:6-11 with a message titled: A THOUSAND TIMES MORE he assured that once the Blessing Centre was completed the auditorium would attract thousands of people from everywhere. The Bishop challenged the church that it was time to reallocate from a 2,000 auditorium at Emmasdale church to a 10,000 auditorium at the Blessing Center.

Beware of Pride
Speaker: Bishop Joe Imakando
1Chronicles 21:1-13

Many have fallen due to pride. As you going to experience unprecedented blessing there’s need to prepare, lest you are tempted by the enemy. Say get behind me Satan instead lift the name of the Lord. Don’t take pride in material things but in God.

Understanding Blessing.
Speaker: Rev. George Adeboye
2Timothy 8:11

Misconception about the blessing: Expecting God to bless you in the way you want. That you will be blessed regardless of the church or authority, blessing is mostly material things (greatest form of blessing is not in material from).
The source of wealth is not money but an idea. Ask God for wisdom.

The Purpose of a Blessing.
Speaker: Rev. George Adeboye
Leviticus 25:21

When God blesses you, there is a reason: To express His love and goodness, to show us that He cares for us, to help us lay a foundation for the future, so that we can recover from the losses of the future, for people to see God as He is 
The highest form of a Blessing/How to be a Blessing

Speaker: Rev. George Adeboye
The reason God blesses us is to make us to be a blessing. The greatest blessing is when you become a blessing. That is when you help somebody. Be a giver. We need to sacrifice, give joyfully, generously and constantly.
The Power of the prophetic word
Speaker: Rev. George Adeboye
Ezekiel 12:25-28

The prophetic word is: an insight into the will of God, proclamation of the word of God, revelation in an unprecedented power, weapon against fear.

The environment of Blessings

God will make you laugh
Speaker: Bishop Appiah
Genesis 17:1-5; 15-17

When God gives you a promise, there’s always a process – a purpose of preparation because God knows where you are going. God processes us to develop character, faith, to prepare for manifestation and to work on our attitude. God visited Sarah and kept His promise.
Failure is not Final
Speaker: Bishop Appiah
Mark 16:1-8
