It was indeed another awesome service penultimate Friday 15th, January 2021 at God’s Arena of Liberty outreach, as the Books of Remembrance opened for worshippers as many got instant mercies of God during the service.
It could be described as the “rain of God’s mercies” as those who have soiled their hands through sins cried openly to God for His mercies and behold it was an explosive and wonderful experience as He granted them mercy”.
“As the God of Mercy, and loving Father”, their sins were washed away and asked never to go back in their former sinful world”.
The Prophet of God Sunday Obi, in his usual simple manner, told the congregation /worshipers to be ready to receive the mercy and grace of God as He opens the Books of Remembrance.
Teaching from the Book of 1Sam 16:7-13 “But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart” and Est 2:21-26 In those days, while Mordecai sat in the king’s gate, two of the king’s chamberlains, Bigthan and Teresh, of those which kept the door, were wroth, and sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus, to illustrate his point.
He prophesised, “some of you have laboured and today, your enemies will celebrate and decorate you. This is your year of celebration”.
Furthermore, he decreed that “today as the Books of remembrance opens, “your enemy will be the ones to announce you. Somebody in your office,family, church, neigbourhood will change your life today. Something extra-ordinary will happen in your today. There is no church In Heaven. Our soul is what is important before God.
He prophesised that “those who work like an elephant and eat like an ant will suffer no more. If you have a sorrowful heart always, as you have stepped your foot inside Arena today, your story will change like Hannah in the Holy Bible Amen “.
He went on saying as recorded in 1Sam 1:15-20 And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD”.
He called upon the Lord of Host to have mercy upon His people for crying out loud seeking for mercy before His presence. And instantly, behold He passionately granted them abundantly. He decreed that all barren wombs be opened as the connect with that of Hannah, failed marriages be restored, single ladies be married, single men should find their life partners while the sick received healing and deliverance.
Also, he prayed for job opportunities and open doors and testimonies in 2021.
He prophesised that all the 2021 prayer requests as presented by worshippers have been granted by God. He further decreed healing, deliverance and a change of story in our lives this year – Amen.
The man of God however conducted healing and deliverance to many believers who had one challenge or the other as the Service witnessed an amazing overflow indicating the will of God for the growth of God’s Arena of Liberty outreach this year.
As the congregation and worshipping community waits upon the Lord for “one week” His manifestation and testimony galore had begun locating His people based on the number of testimonies that came on Friday.
The Outreach was blessed with a new “digital pulpit and a foot mat” for the Prophet of God Sunday Obi, by one of the newest worshipers.
He and his families were committed into the hand of God.
New members were graciously welcomed to the fold.
The Arena Echo International choir rendered praise and worship songs to the admiration of the congregation.
