Just as biblical Apostle Paul desired the salvation of Israel, General Overseer, The Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Renewal Ministries, Pastor Lazarus Muoka, in his pre-crusade media chat, noted that his desire is to make the Yoruba nation, particularly the Sunshine state of Ondo, to partake in God’s blessing to mankind through his ministry.AKURE, the capital of Ondo State weekend witnessed a unique soul re-awakening inspired by the revival train of The Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries in a crusade entitled; “There Cometh One Mightier Than All” held at the proposed Araromi Stadium in the state capital.The crusade saw an unprecedented crowd that filled the entire space and beyond.
According to him, as unbreakable yokes were broken during crusades in other parts of the country, so shall it be in Ondo State, stressing that the ministry’s vision of grassroots revival which is meant to bring the dividends of the gospel to all creatures cannot be accomplished if the Sunshine state is not included.
Preaching at the crusade, Pastor Muoka assured the mammoth crowd that God brought the crusade to give answers to their myriad of problems most of which have defied all known solutions. He added that the programme would mark the end of unanswered prayers which have caused many to subscribe to the deceit of the devil and his human agents such as sorcerers and occult men, who knowing that the End Time has come, take advantage of their ignorance to captivate as many as they could and afflict them with different kinds of diseases.
The cleric maintained that the Lord’s Chosen’s revival train was in Akure to draw the attention of the people to the spiritual truth of the hour and revive the heaven consciousness of the people. According to him, the time of ignorance of not knowing that God is the One Mightier than all has come to a stop by this crusade, stressing that with such knowledge no human or Satan can stand against His wishes.
He posited that if anyone is ignorantcod the ability of God to answer prayers and had gone to consult sorcerers, native doctors or diviners, but have managed to come to the crusade out of curiosity, such a one will not go empty handed, because all the prayers and desires of every participant shall be granted as God shall prove that He is mightier than all their enemies.
“God has seen your affliction and has come to deliver you from the hand of your enemies. If the doctors have failed you, in this programme God will deliver you. If you are confused in life and have lost hope of getting God’s blessing, in this program, He will give you hope. If your case is that you don’t have favour from man, in this programme God shall grant you favour, and the people of Ondo will never be the same again as God will start a new thing in their lives,” he said.
As always the case in his crusades, there were testimonies of the miracles which were wrought, and the remarkable conversion of multitude of sinners to God. Those that were afflicted by various diseases ranging from physical disabilities to mental illness were healed. Many who came with diverse ailments received instant healings.
One Brother Seun, a 21-year old young man who was brought deaf and dumb by his auntI was healed. According to the aunty, he had speech and hearing impairment since 21 years ago and the family had tried all it could to find a solution to the problem to no avail. But during the deliverance ministration, Bro. Seun’s tongue got loosed and he started speaking and hearing at same time.
Also Sister Bumi, (35 years) who was healed of deaf and dumb, Bro. Ahmed who before now was an acclaimed occult grandmaster gave his life to Christ, Sis Patricia Adeyemi had her yoke of deaf and dumb broken instantly during the ministration. Many other deaf and dumb spoke. The mother of a 12-year boy openly testified that her third son who had been deaf and dumb since five years after a chloroquine injection was administered into him by a nurse was healed.
The physically challenged were not left out, as those that suffered broken bones in accidents; to spinal cord injuries, stroke, paralyses, even those that were wheeled into the arena, lifted up their clutches and wheel chairs to celebrate and glorify God for making them walk again. There was a case of instant healing of Sis. Abiola who was brought into the crusade in chains as a result of madness.
There was indeed a mighty display of the power of God. Of course, there is no other way to prove the manifestation of the presence of God than in the demonstration of His power in a revival where the sick were healed and the immoral were converted unto God.
Pastor Muoka charged participants to be steadfast in righteousness and holiness for in so doing, they will retain the blessing of God from the two-day crusade. “You should not fear what man can do to you. Let that man do his worst; let him, plot, persecute and blackmail, what you are sure is that the One mightier than all is on your side, and nobody can harm you,” he said.
Briefing newsmen after the crusade, on behalf of the General Overseer, the church’s spokesman, Pastor Louis Chidi (JP), asserted that Ondo State can never be the same again as there will be from henceforth a positive change in all strata of the government and the citizen will attest to it.
According to him, the crusade is part of the ministry’s continuous evangelical campaign to meet the 10 billion souls mandate before the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is also in pursuance of his threefold vision of grassroots revival all over the world, revival of the Apostolic Christian experiences among the body of Christ and revival of heavenly consciousness among believers. Thus it is targeted at winning great souls for Christ and preparing the saints for rapture.
