Upbeat swing for great event
Text: Luke 14:16-17 “Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper and bade many: And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.”
Whenever a great event is approaching, those that will be involved in it will be doing everything possible to ensure its success. They will prepare and put things in order. They will map out strategies to be followed strictly to achieve the goal. That being the case, we must begin serious preparation towards the great crusade coming up from July 31 to August 1, 2021, entitled: “God Has Sworn to Bless You.”
This kind of programme, in which God has taken oath with Himself, is a great programme indeed. God does not swear anyhow. So, if He takes an oath and with Himself, that means He is very serious. So, His blessings are sure for us on July 31 and August 1, 2021. I want to let you know that it will be a great manifestation of God’s glory. May I inform you that God, having decided to bring this programme again and take it round the nations, has shown that He has great things to do from now on before the trumpet sounds. And all of us must be prepared, not just for the programme, but also for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Always prepare and get yourself ready because God has great things to do for you and for me. The cloud is gathering and great things are about to happen.
The people of old prepared for great events in their time. They prepared to ensure success of the events. When the Israelites were to meet with the Lord, they were instructed to prepare themselves before their eventual meeting with the Lord on Mount Sinai.
Exodus 19:10-18 “And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their clothes, And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai. And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death: There shall not a hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount. And Moses went down from the mount unto the people and sanctified the people, and they washed their clothes. And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at your wives. And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightning, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that were in the camp trembled. And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the nether part of the mount. And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.”
The point is: they were instructed to prepare, to wash their clothes, to sanctify themselves and be ready on the third day to meet with the Lord. There was nothing standing between them and God and on the third day, they appeared and there was a great visitation and the Mount was all in smoke because the Lord came down on Mount Sinai for the prepared people. I am assuring you, God is still the same, He is the unchangeable God, what happened on Mount Sinai, will repeat itself from July 31 to August 1, 2021.
The Lord will come down again, as we go on to prepare in Jesus name. Also before crossing river Jordan, they prepared, they didn’t just cross river Jordan they prepared.
Deut 9:1-4 “Hear, O Israel: Thou art to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself, cities great and fenced up to heaven, A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak! Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee. Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the LORD thy God hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness, the LORD hath brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD doth drive them out from before thee.”
The point is; they were to cross over Jordan and if that be the case there should be prepared so that the Lord will cross them over.
Joshua 3:5-10 “And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the LORD will do wonders among you. And Joshua spake unto the priests, saying, Take up the Ark of the covenant, and pass over before the people. And they took up the Ark of the covenant, and went before the people. And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify thee in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee. And thou shalt command the priests that bear the Ark of the covenant, saying, When ye are come to the brink of the water of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan. And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and hear the words of the LORD your God. And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites.
What the Lord is saying is that you should sanctify yourself, ensure purity, ensure that nothing is standing between you and God, so that He will bless you.
Brethren for us to have a successful crusade or programme, we must begin to prepare and put things in order. Nobody should be idle, nobody should fold his or her hands, nobody should be a spectator. All hands should be on deck. Therefore, everybody must be committed to serving this God to achieve our purpose and for the three-fold vision and 10 billion souls mandate to be fulfilled and heaven at last. If that is the case, this is another opportunity call for us to bring many people into the Kingdom, to make heaven at last. Therefore, let’s work in unity and with strategies to achieve our aim.
Testimony Of The Lord’s Doing
Hallelujah! 20-year Bondage Crushed Now I Am Free
MY name is Sister Mary Ijebo. I reside at Ikotun, Lagos State. I came here for the first time on May 30. Previously, I was a member of Jehova Witness. So, I have never been to any church before. Usually, I don’t accept any invitation to any church, although I had been in pains/bondage for years and lived with it for decades. I had been praying to God for His intervention. Throughout last year till this time, I had been fasting every month. I told God that I was tired of my situation. I am not yet married. Due to the demonic bondage, I had been experiencing disappointment in marriage. Anywhere I worked, I always ended up getting sacked. There was a particular evil bird that kept monitoring me anywhere I went. Once the bird cried, it would affect my ear and in the night, I would not be able to sleep. I began wondering what was the connection between the bird I. There was a projection on my throat, and whenever the demonic projection came, I would defecate and urinate on my body. It was a terrible experience. This was my condition before I came to the Lord’s Chosen. However, on the first day I came here, which was May 30 2021 (Sunday), the G.O mounted the pulpit and gave a word of knowledge on somebody that had been in bondage. Suddenly, I fell under anointing and scattered everywhere. I didn’t know what I was doing, but to my greatest surprise, after the G.O’s prayer, I did not see that projection again. Praise the Lord! God of Chosen is so great.
I suffered this affliction/bondage for 20 sorrowful years but now I am free.
Moreover, I am an HND holder but because there was no job, I was doing menial jobs to survive. There was this Chosen woman I used to sweep her compound. I am close to the woman, so I narrated my problems to her. When she invited me to this place the first time, I declined. She invited me again on May 30 2021, which was on a Sunday. She assured me that a bus would be made available to convey us to the church. On the day we were supposed to go, we came out but there was no bus. I told the woman that it was because of me that the bus didn’t come; the evil bird monitoring me knew that if l came here I would be free and so it wanted to hinder me. Nevertheless, God is a miracle-working God. So, He miraculously brought a sister who paid our transport fare and we came to service that day. My coming here has broken an ancient yoke in my life. I thank God for visiting me. I have decided that nothing will take me out of Chosen because I got my deliverance here. The heavy load the enemy put on me has been taken away, my body is now light. Praise the Lord!
In addition, before I came to Chosen, getting favour was like a camel passing through the eye of a needle. But after coming here, I now receive favour from people. There is a man I know, though we have not seen one on one, and his wife is overseas, she sends goods to me from abroad to sell here. I thank God because everything is going well in my life now. Previously, I had a shop but I was not really selling, but now in my new shop, I sell my goods with ease. God of Chosen is wonderful indeed. May His name be exalted in Jesus’ name! Amen.
I pray for our General Pastor, his family, and all the Chosen members worldwide, heaven at last in Jesus name.
Sister Mary Ijebo, Ikotun, Lagos State.
