Nigeria will be good for faithful believers this year, according to Pastor Damilare Akinola, Senior Pastor of Appealing Grace Assembly International (APGA), Lagos.
In his new year message entitled, 2014: Year of Karis Jubilee, Akinola said: “The Church will arise in relevance and influence if they will pursue righteousness and truth.”
He added that the light of the church will shine as lone star, by the word of God. According to him, Boko Haram will give up upon scattering.
“They will give one by one account for the blood of the priests of Christ which they have shed.
“Their financiers will be visited through their children and generations, but they have grace for repentance, upon which the lord will show mercy,” he stated.
The youths of the nation, the Senior Pastor said, will pick up the pieces of their destiny if they will embrace the gospel.
Akinola said fake pastors will begin to receive early judgment, for the Lord is angry over the pollution which they have made of his divine agenda and reckoning for the Church in Nigeria, which He has mandated as the springboard for the latter day global revival.
He stated that Lagos should get ready for “a performing genuine christian governor”who will enjoy an across the board favor and massive support to excel than his brilliant predecessors.
The pastor went on: “The nature will be clement on mankind this year.. farming will be more attractive in Nigeria and globally.. natural disasters will abate, for the sake of the righteous.
“There will be massive surrender of souls unto Christ, as a signal to his second coming.. though no one knows the hour and the time.. but the peace being enjoyed by genuine saints will become such an attraction to massive soul surrender.
“It will be very hard for men who are stubborn unto wickedness.. God will prove himself as the only source of power, glory and splendor.
“The Church is enjoined to raise more armies of disciples, for the purpose of retraining of the mass of incoming converts.. the harvest is plenteous, but the laborers are quite few. “We call for steadfastness in fasting and prayer as we enter the new year of grace and celebration.”
