Pastor Taiwo @ Sunday Service
In continuation of the message he started the previous Thursday, Pastor Taiwo at the October 20 Sunday service said that the Spirit of God always appears first when God wants to fulfill His promise in the lives of His children, noting that such visitation of the Spirit often comes with anointing. “When God wants to turn around the mess in your life, your first see the Holy Ghost. And He turns your slavery to royalty,” he said.
Doing a recap of the story of the Israelites while in captivity as recorded in Isaiah chapters 57 to 59, and their restoration as recorded in Isaiah 61:1-7, he said that the promises of God become activated in their lives through the Spirit and His Word, and this in turn reveals God’s glory to the world through them. This, according to him, is why believers should always speak God’s Word and watch Him do His work. “With the Spirit and the Word in a believer, a turnaround is guaranteed,” he stated.
He then urged them to know God’s Word concerning them and keep declaring it by the Spirit. “Don’t give attention to what you see or feel. Jesus has finished the work, so hold on to the truth and run with it,” he admonished.
“THE HOLY SPIRIT – THE SPIRIT OF RESTORATION”
Pastor Taiwo @ Thursday Showers
Speaking from Isaiah 61:7, Pastor Taiwo told the worshippers at the October 17 Thursday Showers service that God’s Spirit removes fear from believers. This fear, he said, is usually instilled in them by the devil to distract and derail them from fulfilling their purpose, and brings restoration to them. “When the anointing of the Holy Ghost comes, it brings about restoration,” he said.
He noted that the Spirit of God in His children does not only bless them but also makes them a blessing to others, repairing damaged lives as well as cities. This, Pastor Taiwo noted, reveals the glory of God on earth and draws unbelievers to Him. “You have been promoted to be God’s ministers and servers in God’s Kingdom,” he stated.
He added that when the Holy Spirit comes upon them, He replaces shame with honour and confusion with rejoicing. “For every suffering and shame, you will have double honour,” he declared.
