It’s not easy for anybody to come to chosen, says Muoka
“Unforgiveness could hinder you from receiving from God, and in case you are here as a fraudster, kidnapper, ritualist, terrorist or prostitute, we don’t need your offering or tithe. All you need is repentance and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Jesus is the eternal life, and through Him, you receive eternal life and pardon from God the moment you genuinely repent, confess and promise to sin no more. The power of sonship is given to you, God forgives you and turns your sorrow to joy.”
Those were the words of the General Overseer of the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries, Pastor Lazarus Muoka, while ministering to the mammoth crowd at the just concluded international programme of the church themed: From Sorrow To Joy, part two, held at the headquarters in Ijesha, Lagos.
Speaking on the theme, Muoka, who took his texts from Esther 9:22; John 16; Acts 8:5, 36, said the Bible was full of examples of people who went through deep sorrows, but their understanding of the truth saved them from further damage. He encouraged the congregation to know the truth and be free, adding that those who do not know the truth about the Lord Jesus Christ are in deep sorrow.
Thanking God for those present at the programme, the cleric said: “It is not easy for anybody to come to Chosen. Those in the Bible, who knew the Lord, had their sorrows turned to joy. You are not going away the same. If you can call upon the Lord, He will save and deliver you. It is never God’s Will that any soul should perish. Anything that causes sorrow in your life, the Lord will deliver you from it. Remember, the poor man in the Bible cried unto the Lord, just as Jabez called on the Lord, and the Lord heard them and turned their sorrows to joy.
“When Haman plotted evil against the Jews, God turned the sorrow of Esther and her people to joy. God is the One that turns sorrows to joy. The God that brought the children of Israel out of bondage and did wonders in the time of old has never changed. God that brought the Psalmist out of the pit will bring you out from the horrible pit. God is still working miracles today. Jesus that healed people in the past has not changed. Jesus healed a woman with an infirmity for 18 years…
“He has done a lot of wonders in this church, and you can also testify. That situation that causes you sorrow, God will turn them to joy. Just believe and you shall experience God’s power.”
