God is the Creator of Heaven and Earth. He made the rain and the dry season. He alone decides when it shall rain or when the sun shall shine. He is a wonderful and awesome God. He does not discriminate nor favour a particular race or colour. He is all knowing God.
And yet, the question is why did God allow the rain to fall continually on Friday when He knows his people especially those with challenges are coming to receive their healing? Why? Nobody or any one created by God can question the Lord. For those who have ears and eyes, can agree with me that God had tested our faith to see if we love Him or believe in Him and ignore the rain and attend the program to receive our healing. Can somebody say “Alleluia”. Amen.
There were testimonies, healing, deliverance and liberation for all those who attended Fridays service tagged ” Covenant day of liberation”. The presence of God was manifest and He gave His abundant blessings to all that believed in Him.
Exo 6:6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments”.
The service as usual commences with Minsters and workers prayers, open prayer and the all important “Intercessory prayers”. Despite the rain, the Lord was on the throne and His glory abound. The air was saturated with God’s presence. Alleluia!
Anchoring the Intercessory prayer session, Pastor Thompson Ubong, a spirit filled man of God, diligently led the congregation through several prayer points with references to the Holy Bible as it were.
The prayer points so powerful centred on liberation from our bondages in our lives, marriages, careers, stagnation, finances, businesses and other endeavours of life.
He prayed against any form of evil or curses in our families, finances and in our spiritual lives.
According to him, “sin can block our liberation from bondage. It can disconnect us from God’s presence, protection and freedom”.
He referenced the following Bible verses 2Cor. 3:9/Gen.27:40/Rom. 8:11/Lam.3:37 and 2Cor. 8:9 to drive his message as directed by the Holy Spirit.
Thereafter, the Prophet in the house, Prophet Sunday Obi, had revealed why the rain was allowed to continue by God. He asked the congregation if the rain can stop those going to work or market not to go? The answer was ” no”.
He prophesized that today “there is going to be total liberation” from all our bondages. There is an agreement between me and my God. He is not a liar. Whatever he says he will do shall come to pass. Amen!”.
He said before now “people are ashamed to see them carrying the Bible. They wrap them with copies of chronicle newspaper.. They mock those seen carrying the Bible. Today if you are one of them. Sorry if your faith cannot carry you, you will go home the same way you came, but if you have faith you will be liberated. Satan fears the word of God. Amen.
The word of God is a strong weapon against Satan. He therefore humbly and respectfully ushered the “Mama of the Outreach” Pastor Sarah Abraham to deliver the Word entitled “Covenant Day Of Liberation”.
God takes pleasure in the liberation of His Children. His wishes is for us to have absolute freedom at all times.
This is evident in Jer 34:15 -17 as God says “And ye were now turned, and had done right in my sight, in proclaiming liberty every man to his neighbour; and ye had made a covenant before me in the house which is called by my name:”.
God has never forsaken his children before. Each time He see them in bondage He has always saved them without attaching a price or cost. That is God, Redeemer and our Comforter for you”.
Furthermore, she said ” God works through his anointed servants such as Prophet Sunday Obi in God’s Arena of Liberty outreach “.
Describing what liberation looks like, Mama Sarah refers it be deliverance, rescue, freedom exemption, Liberty or salvation among others.
She said ” a man in bondage is a man in captivity. He is a beggar, poor, frustrated and downtrodden. He is sick, a sinner, stagnated and a complainer”.
“The purpose of the manifestation of Jesus Christ in the flesh is to set humanity free setbacks and bondage. It is an abuse on redemption if I remain in bondage. Ps. 24”.
She said ” prayer, faith, steadfastness, obey prophecy and walking in the spirit are qualities to get one liberated from bondage.
You can read Hosea 12:13/Obadiah 17/Acts2:21/Joel2:13/Rom13;10/Gen 15:13-14/ and 2Cor,3;8 just to mention but a few.
In Mount Zion, there is deliverance. Stop wrong attitude and bad habit. Always read your Bible for the Word of God is a weapon of war against Satan.
In his usual humble manner, Prophet Sunday Obi began to sing and danced towards the choir stand to receive more grace from God because he loves praise and worship songs.
The Arena Echo international choir was handy to deliver the goods according to the will of God.
Obi emphasised on the theme and immediately swung into action as the spirit of God moves him. And they were liberated as God stretched out His Arm. Alleluia!!.
There was no dull moment until they were liberated totally and souls won for His Master Jesus Christ. Corporate prayers were offered against Islamisation of Nigeria. God had ready stopped the move in Jesus Name Amen.
He announced the upcoming Ministers/workers Conference on September 25th,2021 as well as the Women Summit on October 30th, 2021 at the same venue. All are invited in Jesus Name Amen.
It was another Friday’s service to be remembered as all glory, honour and adoration goes to Jesus alone.
