As it is said “praise and worship” gladdens the heart of the Lord more than prayers. No wonder then that the Servant of God Prophet Sunday Obi, during Friday’s Service started with praises.
Hear him, “now that the battle is over, we are more than conqueror”. He decreed that every unseen battle in our live is over from today.
He went on singing with backup from Arena Echo Choir International “God has wiped away my tears and fill my mouth with laughter”.
The praise and worship songs launched the Servant of God to another spiritual realm as he began his prophesy to the congregation.
As the theme implies, “The Broken Siege is over”, he described siege as a blockage in the life of children of God. It blocks destiny and open doors”.
As a minister in the Church, if you don’t have respect for God, it can cause you a siege. God can cause one to experience a siege. Furthermore, lack of respect to humanity is a siege. The richest man or woman is the one who values humanity and gives charity. The greatest investment in the World is knowing God”.
According to him, “those who oppose God can face siege resulting from “disobedience and sin”.
Your iniquities are following you around blocking your blessings. As you continue to sin, you will be in a siege. If you hear the “word” and fails to repent, you are in a siege. When you live in immorality, you are in a siege”.
He quoted the Holy Bible, Eze 4:2-8, “And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it, and cast a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set battering rams against it round about, 2Kings 6:24-25 “And it came to pass after this, that Benhadad king of Syria gathered all his host, and went up, and besieged Samaria”.
Said he, “Satan lays siege to unbelievers. He causes hunger, stagnation, sickness, barrenness and gossiping. When Satan brings a curse to you, your household will reject you “.
Also referencing the Bible according to John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly, he said Jesus came to restore life abundantly”.
Obi in his usual simplistic manner, burst into another praise song “there will be joy in the morning, Oh child of God, cry no more, there will be joy in the morning, to ignite the Holy Spirit during ministration.
“Salvation is the way to breaking our siege and also giving your life to Christ. You cannot have salvation without the mercy of God, he admonished”.
According to Mat 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. Mat 8:23-27 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. And said “prayer and fasting breaks curses in our lives. Lack of faith is another big problem facing believers. Today he prayed that the storm of sickness,stagnation,ruit of the womb as well as other afflictions must be over”.
He also made references to Acts 9:36-41/Acts15:25-26, teaching us the need to sow seeds in our lives. It opens doors that were shut. It ushers in God’s blessings in our life.
Friday’s Service was indeed awesome, spirit filled as praises and worships reigned from the beginning till the endThe presence of God was felt as there were healing, deliverance and anointing. Demons fled out of their captives during the service.
The Servant of God also offered corporate prayers against the devil, evil doers as well as the wicked ones in our society.
He prayed for open doors, marriages, employment, spiritual growth, righteousness and God’s divine mercy upon our lives.
Several people gave their lives to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour while first timers to the God’s Arena of Liberty outreach were welcomed.
The Arena Echo Choir international got the congregation charged with series of praise and worship songs throughout the service.
“2021 God’s Divine Intervention and testimony galore”.
