Pastor Taiwo @Sunday service
Building on the message he started the previous Thursday, Pastor Taiwo at the September 27 Sunday service explained to the congregation that it is the mercies of God that has kept them alive and even gathered for the service. According to him, God’s mercy is such that even when His covenant child goes astray, He will chastise him or her in His mercies and restore them in love.
He also emphasized that God will never deal with anyone outside His covenant; implying that His mercies define our lives. As he read the verses of Psalms 89, Pastor Taiwo pointed that anywhere one sees the mercies of God, the covenant of God is also seen. “When it comes to mercy, the only thing that projects and establishes God’s covenant is His mercies,” he said.
Explaining further on the subject of God’s mercy, he taught that, “The mercy of God is a mystery. You cannot really talk about God without considering His mercies. You need to always intentionally sing about the mercy of God. Your future has much more than you can ever imagine.”
As he read from Exodus 34:6-7 and Deuteronomy 7:9, he explained that the Lord is always merciful and gracious. He will always keep His covenant and mercy for a thousand generation. He is always faithful. He is a covenant-keeping God. He said, “The covenant of God is such that He will always be with us and He will go with us everywhere. On the ground of the covenant and mercy of God that we can approach God’s presence to ask for and receive His promises for our lives. On the basis of the covenant we have with God, we have a better future.”
THE MERCIES OF GOD
Pastor Taiwo@ Thursday Showers
It was joy unlimited at the September 24 Thursday showers as participants gathered physically at the main auditorium of The Fountain of Life Church for the first time after six months of lockdown and ban on all social and religious gatherings due to the Corona Virus pandemic.
Pastor Taiwo while encouraging the onsite participants from the account of the woman with issue of blood as recorded in Mark 5, said that Christians should never condemn themselves to other people’s opinions irrespective of their circumstances but to be driven by hope. This, he said, brings about the miraculous which culminates into praise and dancing.
Pastor, who intermittently injected the service with songs of praise, further cited Lamentations 3:22-23 and Psalm 89:1 to say that God’s mercy, which reflects His attribute, will keep and speak for His covenant children when they don’t allow discouragement put them in despondency. “Don’t ever forget the mercy of God. The reason you are here today, hale and hearty is because of God’s mercy. The mercies of God kept you,” he said.
He then admonished them never to give up but believe and see the glory of God. “Don’t give up on God. The devil will always come to threaten you and want you to see, believe and say something else but you need to make up your mind to focus on God and sing His praise because of His faithfulness. He is faithful,” he urged
