Afflictions Fled As They Offered Praises To His Holy Name – “Jesus”

BY: Phil Adams/Vitalis Ugoh, Calabar

It was another power packed experience at the GOAL Outreach fellowship, as the presence of the Holy Spirit was made manifest, apportioning life transforming encounters to all present.

The song “The Old Roged Cross” is reminiscent of the foundation for the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary, thus, the express pass to our Covenant right for divine healing in all ramification.  

Coordinating the Intercessory prayers, an astute Minister of God, (Officer) Omini Ojah, referenced  Exd. 15:26 “And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.”

He went to state that “sin is the reason for every sickness. We are afflicted and oppressed in health because of our sins”.

“But today, he says, there is good news in the House, Jesus is Lord. He offered prayers to God to have mercy upon us because of our sins and the sins of our forefathers.”

“My Father, my father, by your strips I am healed. Oh my Father, as I call upon your Name give total restoration and healing in my marriage, business, career and finances”.

“My Father, my Father, by hearing your word today, I accept total healing and restoration in Jesus Name Amen “

Prayer points seeking for God’s Divine mercy was also offered.  Bible verses for more understanding such as (Heb.4:15/4:16/isa.53:5/Pas.107:20/Lk.8:43-48).
All the prayers were based on the theme for the service “God’s Divine Healing And Restoration”.

The Theme: GOD’S DIVINE HEALING AND TOTAL RESTORATION, was preached by Barr. Pastor Jacinta Innocent.This segment saw Prophet Sunday Obi in his simplistic manner ushering in an extraordinary minister of God, the daughter of Zion, Barr. (Pst.) Jacinta Innocent to present the Word.

The question is why have you  asked and prayed for so long without result? Is there no Balm in Gilead, (Jer. 8:22).?

She explained that healing is a state of being in sound health which comes from God.

Furthermore, she said restoration is a process of repairing, rebuilding and reconstruction either spiritually or physically. Why with the long term prayers no result? Jer 5:22, Ex15:26, Joel 2:26.


She referenced Jer.8:22 “Is there no balm in Gilead,Is there no physician there?

Why then is there no recovery For the health of the daughter of my people?”

She recalls that our sound health comes from God quoting 3Jhn 1:2 ” Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

The daughter of Zion described restoration as a process of rebuilding something back, physically or spiritually. Today as you hear the Word of God, you will receive your total healing and restoration in Jesus Name Amen.

She says you can receive divine healing and total restoration when you study and says what God says, when you defeat fear, when you have authority over the Word Pas.1:3 “And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper”.

“The Mantle is real and powerful if you believe, faith, believe in the Blood of Jesus, praise as well as standing in the gap for others.”

However, the following can hinder you from accessing God’s Divine Healing And Restoration. These include, sin, doubt and unbelief, impatient, ingratitude, fear or religious misconception.
For further understanding read,

Jer.8:22/Exd.15:26/Joel2:26/3Jhn.2 and Pas.107:2.
Others are, Jhn10:10/pas.1:3/prob.18:10)Lk 10:19/Acts 19:11.

The Prophet, Pastor Sunday Obi, having been satisfied with the guest speaker’s preaching, expressed his uncontrollable joy, saying “I am the happiest minister because God has blessed me with great ministers. 

He said; “I am proud of God, noting that unlike some ministers, i expose the capacity of my ministers by letting them mount my pulpit to preach. By so doing,  the stress is less on me and i can confidently send them out to other Ministries as able representatives of the Commission.” 

Still on the theme, the Prophet recalled the Choir’s ministration, encouraging worshippers to pursue, overtake and recover what rightly belongs to them by covenant (I Sam 30:8). 

He explained that Jesus not only passed by, but stopped at the Arena to touch and change lives. citing instances such as Blind Bartimaeus, the demon possessed mad man at Gadara, Mary Magdalene, King Hezekiah, Hannah, and Queen Esther who was favoured by the King.

For more understanding the following scriptures were referenced respectively: Mk 10:46-52, Mk 5:1-20, 1 Sam 1:12-18 & 20, Esther 2:17. 

Prophet Obi explained that Jesus was at GAOL to pull out the deeply rooted difficult situations and shake off the nonsense from the lives of people. “When all hope is lost, that is when God shows up. While he was yet speaking, a man that could not walk started running. Jesus says; I took away your infirmities and by my stripes you are healed, Matt 8:17b” “Himself took our infirmities and bear our sicknesses” and 1Peter 2:24b “by whose stripes ye were healed”. Every challenge you came here with will not return with you.  Citing the case of Lazarus in John 11:44-46  “.loose him and let him go and “immediately”.  That will be the case of someone today, as he emphasized that it is a new day and a new dawn”.

Straightaway, and by the unction of God upon him, many people encountered God. His presence was so mighty and there were instant diverse signs and wonders. Amongst them was a pregnant lady suffering from apparent heart ailment. 

In the negative supernatural, she had a pin in her heart which was pulled out and her breathing restored to normal. Also, following the oral application of the anointing oil, the very hard and swollen stomach was healed; a man who was delivered from the oppression of a python and made whole during the weekly counseling, also had his daughter set free from demonic oppression and impending death; a woman of sorrow and rejection by those she helped in the past was delivered and her joy, restored; a pregnant woman whom the enemy earmarked for death following bleeding that would occur at 7-8 months of her  pregnancy was set free and baby dedicated in the womb; and a young girl possessed with the spirit of witchcraft was also set free, among others. Jesus did all.”

The numerous testimonies of the day shows that God is ever at work amidst His people. Some of these are: by faith, aching shoulder was healed through prophetic embrace; business bounced back via counsel from a fellow lady minister and more funds; promotion via prophetic instruction; healed of insomnia and accident averted following obedience to prophetic instruction; business open door through parental support/journey mercy; alive and well after bleeding for 24 hours with dead baby in the womb/dead baby and placenta were removed by the grace of God; successful translation of part of the New Testament and sponsorship for training in Jos for some members/after 30 years younger brother given ticket to run as counselor; deliverance from live python in his body by prophetic ministration; summons of enemy before GAOL altar for judgement; a mother loosed from demonic prison. The list is endless. Praise God.”

The last High praise session for our nation Nigeria concerning 2023 elections, was powerfully done. 
Thereafter, the Prophet in the house Prophet Sunday Obi, God’s own general, full of grace could not pretend as he began to sort out people with one challenge or the other.

He raised an “altar” against evil altar speaking against the Father of the Ministry, Papa Abraham and invited the congregation to key into it as they prayed against such evil altars in our various homes.

At this juncture, the ARENA Echo International choir rendered her special number entitled “pursue, overtake and recover all” to the admiration of all.

The Prophet at the end of her presentation on the Word, only gave some few Bible verses, such as Exd. 15:26/Jer.8:22/2Kig.20:1-10 to support the presenter of the Word.

He further announced the end of the three weeks praises towards the 2023 general elections. The Arena Echo International choir supplied the praises and worship songs direct undiluted as proper ministration commenced with signs and wonders spilling into the air and everywhere as the Prophet connects with His Master Jesus Christ, the Son of  man. 

Being in the spirit, he began to release grace upon the congregation to the glory of God.
Marriage Bann of Bassey Obi and  Patience Enang is ongoing. Wedding is October 29th, 2022 at ARENA premises.

The “I love my Pastor comes up November 4th, 2022 while the last Tarry Night is Nov.18th, 2022.”
The Arena Echo International choir was just too good as they rendered praise and worship songs to the glory of God.
