The Grace of God was again at work during Friday’s Service at God’s Arena of Liberty AkA “Enough is Enough” as challenges and hard times bowed down before “Jesus”.
The General Overseer, Prophet Sunday Obi, had earlier prophesied that there were many packages to be released in the course of the service as revealed to him by God.
He declared that “today the gateway to supernatural blessings in hard times will be over as the presence of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit is manifest within, waiting to enter into those who are ready to receive Him.
The Prophet described Jesus as the “Ebenezer” and bulldozer of all gateway to supernatural blessings in hard times”.
The Bible says in Nehemiah 8:10 “Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength”.
Also it says in Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” and in Exodus 15:2 “The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: He is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt Him”.
These are Bible verses to prove that one with God is majority and no matter the situation and hard times, God is there for you at all times.
Pastor Thompson Ubong, who by the grace of God presented the Word entitled “Gateway to supernatural blessings in hard times”, said that the blessings of God can only be assessed through Jesus Christ.
Ubong gave explanation to gateway and the supernatural, saying that “there are doors that need keys to open as well as doors that needs supernatural influence and power to open”.
“Today, the supernatural realm which is Jesus will open the doors that seems difficult for you. Amen! “.
God’s divine intervention means that “the Holy Ghost is at work. In the business of God, protocols are suspended. You don’t need to be qualified or know anybody for God to visit you”.
“Don’t look down on any man. God can raise a man from nobody to somebody. He can raise you out of your financial situation, marriages, rent issues and educational pursuit”.
Pastor Ubong, a seasoned and humble man of God urged “believers to always profess to be rich and not poor as it were”.
He referenced Proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it”.
There is a time for hard times and I know that my Redeemer liveth. Poverty is in the mind. 2Cor 9:8 says “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work”. Heb 12:2 says “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God”.
The Bible made us to understand that we are peculiar and blessed people. It is what we say that can open doors for us. Avoid negative utterances. Be focused. You must always look unto Jesus as a believer and the “Ebenezer in our lives “.
He admonished believers to be humble as there is nobody that doesn’t experience hard times. Learn from your hard times. Give your life to Jesus Christ.
Pastor Ubong charged believers to listen to the Holy Spirit, noting that “thank God very soon, the gateway to supernatural blessings in hard times will be opened”.
He gave Bible verses such as Luke 8:43/Isaiah 1:19/John 14:6/Heb 6:12/2nd cor.4:17 for further references.
Throwing more light on the Word, Prophet Sunday Obi, recalled the story of Isaac in the Bible who sowed in the barren land and because he reverend God, his harvest was bountiful and he was envied.
As usual, the Prophet that loves praise and worship songs swung into action as the Arena Echo international choir led the way as he began to commune and hear from God direcdtly.
He sang “I know I can make it, no matter what comes my way, I will make i” again and again and again as the Holy Spirit directs “.
Obi likened some issues like the “woman with the issue of blood in the Bible”. No one knows her name. It was a nickname. The nickname is no more your name today as you have stepped your feet into the arena. Enough is enough”.
God did it for Abraham and He can do it for you. Everything about him was in red pen, but his relationship with God saved him at last.
Read Ge 12:10 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.
Also for further references consult Ge. 26:1/41:55/13:2 in the Bible at your convenience.
For a believer to succeed, “you must be hard working, consistent, righteous, give your tithes to the church and minister always”.
He declared that as you keep the above rules, God will announce you as He announced Joseph at No 11. Otu Ansa street, Calabar.
The Prophet offered corporate prayers and asked God to release our individual blessings, open the gateway for the supernatural blessings and have mercy on believers.
God’s Arena of Liberty outreach aka “Enough is Enough” has moved to another supernatural realm with testimonies and testimonies and Thanksgiving to God.
The highlight of the service was the celebration of her own, the eldest woman in the outreach, Mrs. Helen Archibong who will cloak 80 on Sunday 18th April, 2021. It was fun galore as the congregation admired, danced and rejoiced with her.
Several deliverances, healings and casting of demons took place at the service.
God has finally announced God’s Arena of Liberty as there was another wonderful overflow.
