Pastor Taiwo Odukoya @ Sunday Service
While ministering at the October 2 Sunday service, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya emphasised the need for believers to have full knowledge of the word of God, as this is the basis for them to fully understand and manifest who they are in Christ. “Having the knowledge of Christ will enable you to manifest the love of God to all,” he said.
Using Ephesians 1:17-19 as his textural background, the clergy noted that this knowledge affords believers the grace to fully know their purpose in Christ, experience the exceeding greatness of God’s power, and for their eyes to be enlightened. He added that the lack of it leads to serious consequences, as found in Hosea 4:6 and Isaiah 5:13.
The cleric elaborated on the word Elshaddai, describing it as when God manifests as the God of more than enough when he makes a covenant with his children, as seen in Genesis 17:1–7.
He therefore encouraged Fountaineers to have a deep intimacy with the Lord, as it makes for a life of worship and makes thanksgiving the order of the day for such a life. “A life of intimacy and the knowledge of God makes for a life of living in abundance and for good works,” he said, using 2 Corinthians 9:8 to buttress his point.
Special Worship Session with Bob Fitts @ Thursday Showers
The main auditorium of The Fountain of Life Church was filled with the palpable presence of God through a special worship session during the September 29 Thursday showers.
The worship session was led by the world-renowned worship leader and founder of Alabaster Ministries, Bob Fitts.
The worship session, which lasted for over an hour, saw participants at the Thursday Showers service express themselves before God, the Fountain of Life Himself.
The worship leader who has been leading worship songs in live performance and recording since the 1980s led the congregation in a series of his best known songs like: You are Holy; I Stand in Awe of You; Blessed assurance; Glory, glory, Lord; Hail, Jesus, you’re my King; As We Worship in Your Presence; He Will Come and Save You; You Are Everything That I Need; Jesus, Lamb of God; and Blessed be the Lord, God Almighty.
Addressing the worshippers on releasing their hearts to God, the song and worship minister, who has travelled over 50 nations with his wife, Katty, to lead worship, urged them to allow God to flow to the world through them. In his words, “The Fountain isn’t coming from among you; the Fountain is coming from God and is pouring all over you now as you stand in His presence.”
The minister encouraged the worshippers to be bold in speaking of their God to others, noting that they should say the truth and be specific about God’s goodness to them.
Confessing his love for Nigeria, the minister sang his song, “Glory, glory Lord…We give you glory Lord…” in the three major Nigerian languages (Yoruba, Igbo, and Hausa).
During his ministration, Minister Bob Fitts made an altar call for those who would like God’s healing to rest on them and, through worship, led them into a prophetic worship session.
Sharing a personal experience of how God uses seeming failures to later bring answers to His children, Minister Fitts urged the worshippers to rest in God’s love because it will never fail them. “You’ve already won,” he said.
