Kumuyi assures of God’s power as Easter retreat begins March 24
The General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Folorunsho Kumuyi, has assured all would-be participants at the church’s national Easter retreat of God’s special intervention in all spheres of their lives.
Pastor Kumuyi, who expressed optimism that God would visit his people in a mighty way, said that the event with the theme, ‘Experiencing the Power of His Cross’, would take place from Thursday, March 24 to Sunday, March 27, 2016 at the Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC) on Km 48, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
He also said that the programme would take place simultaneously in all the state, region and local council campgrounds within Nigeria, other locations in Africa and beyond.
In a statement he personally signed, Kumuyi, who had devoted all his life to the preaching of the gospel and to the liberation of the repressed and oppressed across the globe through the unstoppable power of God, assured that just as the curtain of the temple (in Jerusalem) was torn in two from top to bottom, the earth shook and the rocks split the moment Jesus breathed his last on the rugged cross, even so shall all participants have their life challenges torn asunder and uprooted at the retreat.
“All around us, we hear stories of anguish, terror, sadness and of hopelessness. Frustration is written on the faces of many people; there are dashed elevated expectations, misery and confusion. It has become clear to many people that there is no solution from man. We hear about kidnappings, assassinations, barefaced wickedness, and we experience insecurity and extreme poverty. Many people who placed their trust and hope in earthly authorities have had their hopes dashed. The world, we can safely say, is in turmoil. These are the fulfillments of the scriptures.
Yet, in Christ’s cross, lies the ultimate solution to the temporal and eternal challenges of mankind. The Bible remains our compass in these perilous times. We are comforted by the assurance that the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits,” Kumuyi said.
The cleric also advised all people, especially Nigerians, not to be despondent to the point of seeking solutions to their problems in wrong quarters.
