“His Name is higher above other name, His Name is Jesus, His Name is Lord”. Song.
He is called “Jehovah Shamnah, Jehovah Raah, Jehovah Shalom, Jehovah Jirah, Jehovah Nissi and Abba Father. These beautiful names are evidently backed up in the Bible to prove its authenticity.
His other names are ” Yahweh. Adonai and Elohim”.
Read the following Bible verses to confirm His Word. Ge.22;14/Exd17:15/ Ps.23:1/Eze.45:35 as the case may be.
There is no exaggeration about it. The Word of God is complete and is without blemish. It does not lie nor fail. It is real and does not devour his children. Rather, He provides and cares for those who seek Him diligently as their Lord and Saviour.
No wonder that the Prophet in the House and the General Overseer of God’s Arena of Liberty aka “Enough is Enough” Prophet Sunday Obi, through the Voice of God chose the theme “Divine Answers To Prayers” for this Service.
Understandably, “Divine answers to prayers could mean testimonies resulting from prophecies of God in ones life, family or Church etc”.
But hear me ” these prophecies from God’s Prophet must not be doubted. It can only come when you hear, understand and believe. The word of God has and will never fail from generation to generation”.
Presenting the Intercessory prayers to kick start the Service, an up coming young Pastor Offiong Abraham, who took the prayer points from Dan.11:6/Acts 16:25-26, called on God to graciously forgive us our individual sin and prepare us for our divine answers through testimonies.
He raised prayers against every obstacles, that God should come fight our battles, for God to answer our prayers and open a new chapter in our lives.”
“Oh Lord God, ” give me the grace to achieve effortless results in life, come and save us like you did to Paul and Silas in their own times. This is our own time, do it and take glory “.
Flagging off the service proper, a visiting Minister of God and the General Overseer of God’s Miracle Fire International Inc, Rev. Grace E. Sunday, was brought to the pulpit to pray for testifiers and say a word but she ended up saying many things through prophecies.
She prayed and asked that their testimonies be permanent in their lives Amen.
Rev. Grace Sunday warned those who get prayers answered through a Prophet but will never come back to say thank you God where they got their testimonies,
This attitude of a christian is not acceptable. God is a jealous God. Go glorify His Name where your prayers were answered. He is a loving caring Father.
She admonished believers to always learn to appreciate the man of God. God will answer more of your prayers if you thank Him accordingly.
Rev. Grace Sunday confirmed the prophecy from God that today’s deliverance shall be through the touch of the hand of the Prophet in the house and so was it.
She prayed for the liberation of our spirit realm and cause the earth to swallow whatever that is not of God in our lives, Amen!
Thereafter, the Servant of God, Prophet Sunday Obi ushered the Minister of God, an amiable, humble and easy going personality, Pastor Thompson Ubong, as he presents the “Word”.
He defined ” Divine as anything that has to do with God Almighty”.Divine visitation is prayers answered. Turnaround in your life is prayers answered”.
Jer 33:3 says “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not”. This is God speaking directly to those that have ears.
” Prayers answered are all the testimonies we give daily, through different kinds of Thanksgiving to God, minute after minute, hour and hour. It could be in form of grace from God”.
Proffering solutions, Ubong said, “prayers is not by shouting or crying loud, but rather by saying what God says. You can get response through worship, praying the right way and through praises. Prayer is a supplication to God. Prophet Elijah prayed and there was no rain for years. It happened to Jacob and Hannah in the Bible. It can happen to you today because the spirit of God is in you.
“Blessing is an answer to prayers. Prayers are limited if you doubt and don’t believe. There must be an answer when you believe prophecies. Develop your heart and believe in the man of God”/
“Promises of God are answered. Don’t doubt God. Accept the word. His word does not invalidate. Pray in line with the word of God as recorded in 1Jn 5:14 “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us”:
For further understanding read the following Bible verses Jer.33:3/42:4/Ja.5:16-18/Ps.67:5-6/heb 11:6/luk1:45 and Heb4:6 respectively.
Crowning it all, Prophet Sunday Obi as usual sang several choruses as he danced and danced and was filled with the Holy Spirit.
Yes, he said, “God is the ultimate. Your wealth and riches without God is vanity upon vanity”.1Ki 20:25 And number thee an army, like the army that thou hast lost, horse for horse, and chariot for chariot: and we will fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they. And he hearkened unto their voice, and did so.
“Heart felt prayers work very fast. Hannah said oh Lord I am a woman with a sorrowful heart hear my prayers”. We have always failed God whenever we get a turnaround, we forget God and where we got it”.
“You make a vow in the Church and will never fulfill it. Hannah made a vow with her only son and God blessed her abundantly’.
He touched on the issue of prayer of Thanksgiving at all times. It is good to always appreciate God. Telling God thank you in anticipation. It moves Him to do more for you. Sowing answers prayers too. But today, I know somebody is going home blessed.”
Obi confirmed the prophecy as he raised his hands for the congregation to touch and healing, anointing begins to take place as God revealed to him.
He prayed for open doors, prayer answered and turnaround in our lives.
The Prophet warned those who come to tempt God during service by wearing “charms” to desist or have themselves to blame.
