Mat 8:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
The scripture is the fountain of the truth. There is nothing that the Word of God cannot solve if only you apply it well.
This brings us to the theme of this week’s Friday Service tagged “Faith is the life wire to Christianity”. You can never win any battle when you don’t have faith. The Word of God is sufficient in our lives but most christians don’t know or rather believe in the Word of God. It gives life and restores hope.
You can hear the Word on hourly basis but if you lack faith and obedience, you can never access Gods blessing nor have testimonies in our lives.
As believers you must search the scripture always to be able to apply it spontaneously when the need arises. It is the fountain of life. It is a gateway to blessing and righteous life.
For the “match makers” as it were, their predictions failed them again ‘albeit’ Friday Service which was “feet washing”. There was an “overflow”. God released his own in their multitude to partake in this spiritual exercise. Oh! How excellent and colourful it was in His Sight”.
To confirm his Word, the Arena Echo International Choir was at its best. You could fill the manifest presence of our Redeemer, the Angels and the Holy Spirit in that service.
You can say, it was ” awesome”. The General Overseer, God’s own General, Prophet Sunday Obi and Papa Abraham, Father of the Ministry expressing their unalloyed joy and gratitude to God.
The devil was put to shame as the Holy Spirit took over the Arena premises throughout the service duration to the glory of God to whom glory, honour belongs to.
Prophet Obi, in furtherance to the Word had said, “faith is the small key that opens a big door”. Faith is the root to our blessing when connected to the Word of God. It changes situation but most when all hope is lost, apply faith.
He says ” life without faith is death” and nothing can change the situation. If you are in Arena and die, you desired to die. Key into the testimonies of others and yours shall come. Listen to prophetic declarations in your life and follow it up, watch and see if Our God will not answer you. Alleluia!.
He burst into song, “Oh yes, He answers prayers. The God I serve answers prayers, Only Jesus answers prayers” as the Holy Spirit directs him.
“Something must trigger your faith for people to know that you are serving the living God. Abel sowed his seed with faith. Your seed or gift speaks for you. Cain offering was cursed which brought envy and he slaughtered Abel his brother.”
“Blood of Jesus is life. Faith caused Abraham to offer his only son as sacrifice to God. Faith moves mountain and challenges. David had faith in hence he defeated Goliath. As a child of God and daughter of Zion, where is your faith. God of Christianity believes in action with faith. Faith without works is death.
Heb 11:4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
“By faith Noah built the Ark as directed by God as recorded in Heb 11:7”. There were other Biblical stories on faith based. Amen!
“Today, he decreed that cancer, HIV, leam and deaf and dumb will be alive after the feet wash, if only they believe and obey His Word.” Read John 13:1-5.
He prayed that our desire today is that faith should be our life wire, I will never go back the same, turn my life around for good, Oh Lord God, visit me, my family, my business, marriage and above all my spiritual life today in Jesus Name Amen.
Earlier, the youngest Minister in the Commission, Rev. Kingdom Obi, spirit filled, delivered the Word as it were in a master piece manner without blemish to the glory of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
She cited 1Jn 1:1-5 “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life”
Faith is the software that keeps believers alive and makes us optimistic in impossible situations when others are giving up. Those who lack Faith accepts “Fate”. Roms 1:17.
It makes us to stand in life, that is faith for you. Faith can cause a situation return back to sender. Eph.6:16.
She says, “this is the hour, start now to search for the scripture. There is no problem that has no solution with the Word of God.”
“Faith is a currency that God gave to us to sponsor our vision. Faith helps us to start our vision. Visions will remain unfruitful, unproductive and barren, without faith.
Heb 11:1, says “Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised”
“Christianity is like a warehouse that contains so many goods and faith is the key that opens the doors for you to access what is inside and take them. Mk.9:23
Faith is spiritual exercise that energizes you to accomplish your vision or desire, she noted.
She admonished believers to begin to build their lives on God’s Word, and say what God says and your faith will work, Amen! Amen!!.
Earlier, Officer (Pst) Omini Ojah, had coordinated the Intercessory prayer points to spiritually prepare the stage for the service with reference to Heb.11:1/Roms.4:19-20
He prayed to God to activate the Abrahamic kind of faith in our lives, to restore our hope, make our faith grow like the mustard seed, activate our faith to have the correct understanding and knowledge of the Word of God, that we should not go back unrewarded and make us to serve him diligently always.
Oh Lord God, deliver pregnant women like the Hebrew woman, prayed for progress, unity and love in our families, and cause any negative spirit in our lives to die permanently.
The General Overseer had earlier introduced the would be couples in God’s Arena Of Liberty, Prince and Princess, Charles Edet Oqua/ Esther Ojong Ewona to the congregation. Their wedding comes up on May 28th, 2022 in the Ministry. This is the first publication of their marriage bann.
Two great personalities in the Ministry, Papa Abraham and Pst. Dominic Ephraim announced their birthday and they were celebrated.
Another important event at the service was the calling out of all Ministers of God by the Prophet who prayed for them irrespective of their miniseries. He admonished them to pray to God to open their eyes concerning where they worship if actually there is the presence of God or not including his own ministry.
As usual, there were healing and prophetic messages on those that were spotted by the Holy Spirit.
First timers were welcomed to God’s family. Our counselling days remain: Mons/Weds, while the Prayer Mountain is Mons, Tues and Weds @ No.11 Otu Ansa street, opposite Margaret Ekpo international airport.
