Kumuyi assures on God’s unlimited power at Easter retreat
General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Folorunsho Kumuyi, has assured all participants at the church’s forth-coming 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, announced 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 the programme would take place simultaneously in all state, region and local government camp grounds in Nigeria, other locations in Africa and beyond.
In a statement, Kumuyi, who has devoted all his life to the preaching of the gospel and 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 hopelessness. Frustration is written on the faces of many people; there are dashed expectations, misery and confusion. It has become clear to many people that there is no solution from man. We hear about kidnapping, 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 fulfilments 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, saying “The point at which we are in the country demands divine intervention. That may not be quick in coming unless we all intercede for Nigeria and resolve to do things in a better, different way. We need not shed innocent blood in our desire to make it in life. The awesome power of God that resurrected Jesus from the dead is still very potent to deliver those who put their trust in Him.”
The General Superintendent said beyond seeking a prosperous life here, every human creation of God should rather concern him/herself with the life hereafter.
“Worldly attainments will fade away, whereas the word of God remains forever. Therefore, as Christians and sincere and earnest seekers, we must constantly feed ourselves with God’s word, which must be our guide, and by so doing; live a life that pleases Him, leading genuine followers of Christ into the Portals of heaven ultimately. No matter what we are in life, it cannot be compared to a life that has no end, which is as blissful as it is glorious with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. That is our ultimate goal,” he said.
The retreat, the statement added, would be streamed live via satellite from DLCC to other centres in Nigeria, Africa, Europe, America and other continents of the world, where the church has its branches.
“Like previous editions, the event will meet the diverse needs of participants, as testimonies of supernatural deliverances have always been a common place at the event,” the release stated.
