The living presence of the divine power of God was tangible in the air as The SCOAN Choir rendered songs of worship in the second Sunday Service for the year 2020. As they moved from song to song, the Holy Spirit overshadowed ‘The Arena of Liberty’ and congregants began to fall under the anointing as they walked into their freedom from disease, lack, indebtedness, disappointment and a host of other problems caused by the devil and his agent.
Prophetess Yinka described the New Year as “A NEW OPPORTUNITY”, a message which focused on the need for Christians to seize the opportunity of a new year to amend their ways before God and to change their behaviour towards others. She took her proof text from Ephesians 4:17-23 but also read from Matthew 26:41, Proverbs 15:33, James 4:10, 2 Chronicles 7:14, Galatians 2:20 and Joshua 24:23. Prophetess Yinka strongly encouraged Christians to engage in serious self-examination and “to maintain a steady focus in an unsteady world.”
The woman of God told congregants that they had to live in humility and that they could not keep worshiping their old selves, since genuine Christianity comes out of conversion rather than mere conviction. Consequently, she added, our conduct must match our faith confession if we must enjoy God’s blessings. She also warned congregants to be wary about the challenges of the New Year and concluded by exhorting congregants to follow the good road to the good life by praying more, reading the Bible more and loving and helping others more.
After the message, the Lord worked wonders through His servants Prophetess Yinka, Prophet Racine and Prophet Chris. Again, the Spirit of the Lord moved in ‘The Arena of Liberty’ and many contrary spirits were chased out of the lives of God’s children.
