The God of God’s Arena Of Liberty (GOAL) was at it again. The Great and Mighty God, the one who never ceases to amaze His people, “Jehovah over do, came down again. Not ….at Christmas… though”. The turn out was beyond human expectation despite the heavy downpour of that morning.
Following the Word, was praise that ushered in the prophetic and deliverance ministrations. Dancing through the congregation, God’s servant by the Holy Spirit called out a good number of persons whom he ministered to, besides those arrested by the power of God during the special/corporate prayer time. It was wonderful!.
The “Sand” service was unique and judging from testimonies from such previous services, worshippers were encouraged to take it very seriously.
Note, that the intercessory prayer session was led by Pastor Thompson Ubong setting the stage for the entrants of the word
He described blessing as “an empowerment from God in our lives”.
Pastor Ubong who took the prayer point from Prov.10:22,, prayed for divine blessing in our marriage, career, job, and business among others.
“Oh Lord God, let your presencw in my life produce all round fruitfulness/Blessing in our lives, Oh Lord God, I receive blessing, knowledge, wisdom and understanding in all spheres of our endeavor, Oh Lord God, i receive the spirit of obedience and humility”.
“Oh Lord God, remove the spirit of pride, take away all element of pride and disobedience in our lives”, Oh Lord God, I am redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ, I receive my blessing in the Name of Jesus Name Amen”,
He also prayed against any form of siege in our lives making us not to access our blessing and fruitfulness. He prayed for the spirit of righteousness. I refuse to die in poverty. I am the head and not the tail in Jesus Name Amen”
For further studies, the following Bible verses could be read. Prov.24:3/Gal.3:14/Job 32:8/Psa.32:6. Others are Psa.32:8/23:6/Isa.1:19/Psa.1:3/92:12 and 2nd Peter.1:2..
The THEME: “GOD’S DIVINE BLESSING AND ALL ROUND FRUITFULNESS” was handled by the guest speaker, Barr.Pst. Jacinta Innocent in a dynamic and digital way.
She says, God’s Divine blessing and fruitfulness is enormous. It is a compensation from God to those who are obedient and have faith in the Lord. The blessing of God is inherent in us waiting for manifestation.
Factors that attracts God’s blessing and fruitfulness include, faith, obedience, Love of God, Sowing seed, charity and Thanksgiving.
She enumerated benefits of Divine blessing as fruitfulness, unusual favour and wisdom while it can be hindered as a result of ancestral curse, lack of knowledge in God’s Word, disobedience and pride.
At this juncture, she called for altar call which saw over15 persons giving their lives to Christ.
She delivered the Word based on the following Bible verses. Read
G.12:1-3/22:15-19/Mk.11:6/Heb.11:6/11:1/john 14:15 and 2kings 4:8 amongst others.
God’s servant, Prophet Sunday Obi God’s own general, concluded by expatiating further on the theme. It was all mind blowing. He noted that “anything that is good comes from God. Divine blessing is not because of your education or wealth, it is from God. God does not bless haphazardly. At the appointed time it will surely come but you must pray, wait and believe.
He says “trust and have confidence in God” and in a short while, it will come”.
On this strength, he quickly switched on to corporate prayers for the nation, seeking the face of God to deliver us for the hands of strangers planning to take over the country
He prayed against any form of conspiracy against christians in Nigeria. Obi prayed against monitoring spirit in our lives. H e plead the “Blood of Jesus” on believers during the service.
A special guest Dr. Pastor/ Pastor Mrs. Fidelis Anukwa, were introduced by the General Overseer, Prophet Sunday Obi to the congregation.
Prophet Obi also not only recognized but blessed in “cash” and prophetically, a little boy of about Seven who took to the drums and entertained and backed up the Arena Echo International choir before the instrumentalist arrived due to much rain. It was amazing and entertaining to the glory of God. And instantly, he got his Divine blessing with fruitfulness.
Worship and praise saw the heavens come down. Kudos to the entire Music Ministers and instrumentalists.
To the worshippers, loving chiding was sounded concerning giving unbefitting and unworthy offerings to God. (Mal 1:8).
The testimonies and all that happened today, shows that God is at work in the midst of his people. God Almighty was indeed highly exalted. Praise the Lord.
First timers were prayed for and welcomed to Arena every Friday service. Counseling and prayer mountain continues Mon-Weds/Mon. Tues./Weds.
The next Tarry Night comes up in August 25th, 2022. Praise God. Alleluia!
