The President, Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo has expressed optimism that there are new agenda in the plans of God for the saints.
He noted that it is a new season where strange works and acts would not cease among believers. Oyedepo spoke yesterday at the opening service of the Church’s annual Shiloh convention tagged: “New Dawn,” held at its International Headquarters, Faith Tabernacle Canaan Land, Ota. According to him, the theme of the convention was an inspiration from God and therefore it would deliver in the lives of all participants. He said: “This is a celebration of our New Dawn in Christ. By redemption, we are members of the household of God and that has made us to be far above all the works of the enemies. He noted that by new birth every believer was seated far above the wickedness of the enemies. “God has new things agenda for his children at all the times and we are entitled to new things every day, month and year. It is a family where we continue to experience the strange works of God.” The Cleric also urged Christians to invest quality time in the word of God to enable them overcome the evil ones. He stated that having an encounter with the word of God is a guarantee for the security of the saints. Oyedepo stressed that ignorance is part of the reasons many Christians are oppressed adding that salvation is key to a life that is free from all oppression. He said: “Many have seen the good hand of God at a time but they are no more seeing it, the reason is because they have disconnected. When you settle with God, He will settle your issues. It is time to settle with God, no more hit and run Christianity. It is not the hearing of the Word of God that gives light, it is the entrance, when you are illuminated by the word of God, you dominate your circumstances without stress.” The Cleric who posited that hearing the Word of God is not enough stated that the Word has to be received and believed before it can deliver in the lives of the hearers. Quoting John chapter one verse five, Oyedepo stated that the moment light of the Word comes in, darkness would disappear. He however charged Christians to engage in violent declaration for the delivery of their redemptive blessings. “The dominion of light over darkness is instant and unquestionable. The enemy has no power, he is just a trickster. Deliver yourself by engaging in the Word of God”.
