Pastor Anselm's birthday and the 7th Anniversary of CHMfan
Introduction from the Servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm
On the 17th of March 2013,during the Sunday service,the Man of God Pastor Anselm celebrated his birthday with the CHM fan family.The Man of God shared about his background and up-bringing with the congregation.He was born on the 13th of March,1957.During that time,his poor mother had nothing to offer and had her new born baby boy covered with a dustcoat. They were both rejected by his father.On mentioning this,the humble servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm was very thankful to the wonderful coordinators of the Lord,as he was dressed in a new and classic suit which he received as a gift for his 56th birthday.May the Lord continue to bless you coordinators of CHMfan. Since ,there was no one else to look after him,the servant of the Lord was brought up by a Man of God Reverend Reu,at Makumbe Mission.Pastor Anselm only got to know all the details about his background in 2010,at the age of 53.He believed that all the difficulties he encountered as he grew up,were for a purpose and meant to show the Glory of the Lord in his life.The Man of God Pastor Anselm sang with the CHMfan choir,the choir of the Lord -"In the bleak mid-winter -Shona version" and "Pane Sipiti".He sang with great passion expressing his love to the Lord for giving him the fruitful 56 years.He knelt and bowed before the Lord as he expressed his passion for the Almighty God.They went on to sing "Emmanuel,Emmanuel,Oh How I love you",a God-given Christmas Carol that was composed in 2012 by the Servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm in celebration of the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.He glorified the Lord for His Everlasting Love and Greatness.
The servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm celebrated his birthday and rejection.In the Bible the Lord Jesus Christ was persecuted and rejected by the world.John 1 vs 10-13 "He was in the world and though the world was made through Him,the world did not recognize Him.He came to that which was His own,but His own did not receive Him.Yet to all who received Him,to those who believed in His name,He gave the right to become children of God.-children born not of natural descent,nor of human decision or husband's will,but born of God."
The 7th Anniversary of CHMfan
The commemoration of the 7th anniversary of the CHMfan was joined together with the celebration of the birthday of the servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm. CHMfan was founded during the Holy week leading to Easter.The Christian Healing Ministry for all nations is a product of the resurrection and suffering of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Great Supper (Luke 14 vs 15-24)
On the 17th of March 2013,the Lord Jesus Christ,through His servant Pastor Anselm gave a great supper and invited many.However as many of the invited did not turn up,the Lord Jesus Christ invited people from the streets to celebrate the birthday of His anointed servant Pastor Anselm.The blind,unemployed and widows attended the birthday of the servant the Lord.Pastor Anselm felt honored by their presence as this was a special priviledge that drew him closer to the Lord.In appreciation of the love of the blind,widows and the unemployed,the servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm,gave them gifts.Pastor Matthew and the choir of the Lord played a birthday song for the servant of the Lord while Pastor Grace,the wife of the servant of the Lord and Mrs kutyauripo,the CHMfan interviewer handed over the gifts to the wonderful and special people invited by the Lord Jesus Christ for the birthday celebration.The servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm was giving to the people that the Lord had given to him. Amongst the people was Siphelile and Gogo Gwaze,the Living testimonies of the Lord who were miraculously healed by the Lord Jesus Christ,through His humble servant Pastor Anselm.Little Joshua,a miracle baby danced as the choir of the Lord sang for the Man of God Pastor Anselm.To God be the Glory.
The birthday cake of the servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm
The beautiful cake for the servant of the Lord was written" Team Jesus,Pastor Anselm." The Man of God,Pastor Anselm took photos with the people the Lord had invited for his birthday celebration and the congregation at large.As the choir of the Lord sang the birthday song for him,the servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm responded that he was 56 years old with great joy and his white beard which made him resemble the saints of the Lord in the Bible.The Lord always works beyond human explanation in CHMfan,through His servant Pastor Anselm.The candles on his cake could not be seen with the human eye.In other words,the candles were invisible.To much surprise of the congregation,as the humble anointed servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm blew the invisible candles on his cake,the CHMfan choir fell on the ground with anointing.This is a special unforgettable experience on the birthday of the servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm.Praise be to God!The Man of God Pastor Anselm gave thanks to Lord and the children of God for their love and making his birthday celebration special.
The Lord is ever in control of His Choir
As the choir of the Lord sang "Worthy is the Lamb" together with the Man of God Pastor Anselm,some of the members who were unserious ,found themselves on the floor and could not partake in the singing under the special anointing of the Lord.This shows that the Lord is always with His choir hence neither the demon-possessed nor deceivers can sing under the special anointing of the Lord.This was a great lesson to most young people on the importance of being sincere and genuine before the Lord.
The Lesson of Jonah
In Jonah chapter 1,the Lord sent Jonah to Nineveh but he ran away and headed for Tarshish. Jonah was disobedient to the Lord hence the Lord sent a violent storm that threatened to break up the ship to Tarshish. Jonah knowing that he was the cause of the storm he asked the sailors to throw him into the sea and the Lord provided a great fish which swallowed Jonah and he spent 3 days and 3 nights inside the fish.After Jonah realized that he was wrong he quickly acknowledged to the Lord and the Lord commanded the fish to vomit out Jonah onto a dry land.Today as the children of God we were created to serve the Lord,making use of all the resources and special gifts we received from the Lord to glorify His Name.Be obedient to the word of God and you will be blessed by God.Your blessing from the Lord will bless others as well.Remember we can not live by bread alone but by the word of God.(Matthew 4:4)For you to live according to the Word of God,you have to be a Doer of the Word of God.For you to be Doer the Word of God,you have to be obedient to the Word of God.In 1 Samuel 15:22 "Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obedience to the voice of the Lord?To obey is better than sacrifice,and to heed is better than the fat of rams."The servant of the Lord Pastor Anselm and the choir of the Lord sang "Baba ndiri mwana wako" a song of submission of a sinner unto the Lord.Our God is a Forgiving Father.When Jonah acknowledged to the Lord for his sin,he asked the Lord to restore him whilst he was in the belly of the fish.Today if you are living in the belly of the fish,learn to acknowledge your sins before the Lord and He will restore you.Restoration follows repentance.Remember,the Lord is a Forgiving Father and it is never to late to repent and stop living inside the belly of the fish.
With his new-look,the white beard,the Man of God Pastor Anselm launched the Harare CHMfan fellowship group.New stewards were appointed and anointed to preach the Gospel of the Lord in Harare.
The Man of God Pastor Anselm and his family are very thankful to the children of the Lord for their love during the birthday celebrations.May the Lord continue to bless you all children of God.
