In the Bible, God said in Numbers 14:24 “But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it”.
Because he had another spirit “supernatural spirit”, God allowed Caleb’s seed to possess the land which he had provided. This is supernatural spirit of God at work and no man proclaims and it comes to pass except God Himself “.
The supernatural realm is where all things are possible. Anything God has not approved cannot hold.
And behold the supernatural spirit of God was at work in God’s Arena of Liberty Friday to prove that Jesus Christ who died and resurrected had paid a huge price for our redemption as Christians.
It was time for the special number by the Arena Echo international choir. It was delivered and sealed and the congregation acknowledged them with a resounding applause that lasted for over two minutes.
Their rendition provoked the supernatural spirit of the Servant of God, Prophet Sunday Obi, who swung into action as God started to reveal to him those with challenges and afflictions.
And he prophesised the manifestation of the supernatural realm of God in the Arena ground throughout the service.
In his usual humble character, he introduced the youngest Minister, Rev. Miss Kingdom Obi who presented the Word titled “I am redeemed to operate in the supernatural”.
Rev. Obi, who started to mount the pulpit at the age of 15, attempted to define supernatural, saying, “to operate in the supernatural, you must know that you are in Christ as the furure and destiny of every believer is determined by his understanding of his root”.
It also allows us to be transformed by the renewing of our mind, and we actually begin to think God thoughts that lift our life to another level. In the supernatural realm, there are unlimited turnarounds – all are possible, all can be sought after. Nothing is too hard for the Lord, she said “.
Ge 3:6-8 says “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat”.
The supernatural is the act or an act that cannot be explained by natural laws, yet cannot be denied. It is the finger and an outstretched arms of God at work as recorded in (Ex. 8:19 and Deut. 26:8).
“Supernatural turnaround people have an attitude about them, and attitude that permeates the air they breathe and allows them to see things before they become reality”.
She spoke of the importance of the tongue. “A close mouth hinders the flow of the supernatural, no matter how anointed that person is. Whatever that is too big for our mouth is too big for our lives”.
According to her, “every need answers to a miracle, every challenge bows to a wonder and every desire surrenders to a sign. When we disregard the place of the supernatural, we become spiritually impotent and vulnerable to the wicked maneuvering of the devil “.
She admonished believers to be strong in their faith as the stronger, the higher our level of Faith. She made reference to Mark 1:23-24,John 14:12, Heb.11:1,Joel 2:28-30 for further study.
She emphasised on the need for prayers, adding that “no prayer, no power, more prayer, more power as recorded in Luke 10:1”.
“As believers, you must know your power source. Spiritual understanding is what distinguishes one believer from another. It is the key to command the supernatural, she pointed out”.
“Your consciousness of who you are in God is what determines what you can handle. If you carry the consciousness that we are bought with a price. You are not you, but an ambassador of Christ. It will help you in your christian journey. As a christian you are always on duty”.
Expatiating on the Word, the General Overseer of God’s Arena of Liberty outreach, Prophet Sunday Obi “said God had opened his eyes as a major prophet to the supernatural realm”.
He therefore prayed against those ministers of God whose stock in trade are to scandalise other ministers for envy purposes.
He called on God to judge and expose those ministers of God who are using other powers to operate in the Name of God.
As a lover of songs, he invited “Jesus to come and defend your Name Oh Lord. That my enemy will not ask me where is my God that I am serving. He danced and praised His Master Jesus to come and take charge of every situation”.
Obi referenced “John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.John 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit”.
He said, “if you are a minister, you must be born again and humble before your members”.
He bursted into another praise and worship song, “My God will do it, He is a Miracle God and danced to the glory and supernatural realm of God”.
As believers, he said, “you must be positive with your tongue anytime any where”. He gave Bible verses for further references Matthew 16:17-19, Cor.12:10 and Acts 28:310″.
Under corporate prayers, Obi prayed God to expose those who caused mayhem in Ebonyi state where several people including women and children were brutally murdered by herdsmen.
He prayed for the protection of lives and property in Cross River state from the hands of the murderers in Jesus name Amen.
The servant of God however released abundant blessings and grace to the worshipping congregation.
The service was indeed another awesome outing with several life touching testimonies.
However, the first of its kind “tarry night” will hold on Friday 9th of April, 2021 at the auditorium of the ministry.
There shall be God’s divine intervention and testimony galore. Come and be part of God’s mercies, healing, anointing and experience. Don’t come alone. Come with your loved ones and God has already blessed you in anticipation.
The highlight of the event was the appointment of Pastor (0fficer) Omini Eno as Assistant Choir master by the General Overseer, Prophet Sunday Obi during the service.
Arena Echo international choir entertained the congregation with praise and worship songs to its fullest capacity during the service.
