JUNE 2018 TESTIMONIES

DIVINE PRESERVATION
I was diagnosed with a kidney infection in June and my doctor told me that I would have to go through a major surgery to rectify it. I immediately called my daddy in the Lord and he prayed for me. I underwent the surgery, which lasted for about 8 hours and I came out successfully. I want appreciate Daddy and mummy for their support and prayers as well as other members of the church. I give God all the glory to preserving me, today I am standing on my two feet hale and hearty, thank You mighty Jesus!

GOD MADE ME A LANDLORD
In April, when I joined this church I believed God for a piece of land. I travelled to the place I intended to purchase the land but I couldn’t wait to pay for it so I handed the money over to my brother to pay on my behalf. Eventually he couldn’t. During the June Breakthrough and deliverance service, pastor said we should ask God for a specific thing. I just simply told God that I needed a house. I had some doubts in my mind that since I did not yet have a land and I was asking for a house. However, I wrote it on paper that I needed a house. And pastor said before the next breakthrough and deliverance service God would have done it. Last week, my elder brother called me that a house was to be put up for sale at the site where I was to buy the land. I told him I did not have enough to buy a house yet, He asked me to send whatever I could raise which I did. To the glory of God, the house was sold to me at the very amount I had. I want to give God all the glory because today I am a landlord. God never fails!

COMPLETE RESTORATION
I am appreciate God for my aunt’s friend. She went to the bank to withdraw some money (about half a million naira) and to her amazement she was told that she had no money. She was devastated not knowing what to do. She informed me and I told a lawyer friend in church, who advised us to follow some processes which she did. However, the bank did not respond as fast as we expected. It was later discovered that somebody hacked into her account and had bought a lot of things online. The bank did not want to do anything but God raised someone for her. The person took up the matter and her money was retuned fully. I return all the glory to Jesus!

I SERVE A LIVING GOD!
On June 24th, I was going to pay my sister a surprise visit on the Island. I left home without eating anything that day even though I had ulcer. On getting to Surulere, I felt an intense pain in my stomach. I took some food and an energy drink and instead of the pain to subside, it got more severe that I could not even stand up. I managed to get to my Sister’s home and she had to carry me on her back to the hospital. The doctor said I was feeling something close to labour pains, so I was given a pain killer but the pain increased per hour. This went on for about three days and I started praying to God to please heal me. In the meantime, my sister started receiving calls and prophesies that she was about to lose someone close to her. I knew that this was beyond ulcer so I was taken to another hospital and after I was there for a week, nothing was diagnosed. It was then I remembered that I had not used the toilet for two weeks. And I couldn’t even take water and so I told the doctor I did not want any more medication as I was not improving and I couldn’t bear the pain anymore. After several scans and x-rays, the doctors discovered that there was a blockage in my intestine and it was the cause of the pains and indigestion. They said we would need ₦700,000 for the surgery and my sister was crying because we did not have such money. Surprisingly, a day later, the money came from where we least expected. I was transferred to another hospital where the surgery was performed. While the surgery was on-going, I woke up but I could not move any part of my body and I just asked God to help me. After the surgery, the prophecies kept coming that I was not going to live and the money was wasted. My sister kept crying because she was seeing a dead body in her dreams. But I told God that despite all this I was going to make it. I later had a dream about the rapture and afterwards I received my miraculous healing. I went for a check-up yesterday and the doctor was left surprised because the wound had closed up just after three weeks the surgery. I told him I serve a living God! I am alive today because God kept me. Praise the Lord!

DIVINE HEALING AND PRESERVATION
I was very ill last weekend, I took a few drugs and felt better. I’m grateful to God for the healing. I am also thanking God on my father’s behalf. He became ill a while ago and we thought that he wasn’t going to make it but I thank God because yesterday, he celebrated his 60th birthday. Halleluiah!

DYNAMICS OF WISDOM AND FOCUS

The last weekend in May, 2018 was a first of its kind in City of Refuge. We held the inaugural Life Summit with Pastor Femi Atoyebi, a senior pastor with RCCG, where he taught the church for a duration of three consecutive services on the Dynamics of Wisdom and Focus from 6pm, Saturday 26th May till 12pm, Sunday 27th May, 2018. Pastor Femi, a former Pastor-in-charge of RCCG Region 2, is a prominent lawyer, Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and a prolific minister of the Word of God. His message highlighted on wisdom principles for wealth creation and sustenance, below is a brief summary.

Message title: DYNAMICS OF WISDOM AND FOCUS (Proverbs 4:7, 24:3 – 6).
Wisdom, which is the application of knowledge, is required to achieve success. God has made success available for as many who have wisdom, and this causes them to be blessed (Psalm 1:1 AMP). These are some wisdom nuggets, if applied and adhered to, that will transform your life for the better on all sides.

1. Be led by the Spirit of God and not your flesh nor emotions. When you turn to God, He will guide you (Psalm 32:8, 48:14 and Deuteronomy 8:18).

2. When you make a vow to God, pay it as quickly as possible. Do not promise God what you do not have the capacity to give Him (Ecclesiastes 5:4 – 5 and Deuteronomy 23:21 – 22).

3. When you give to God (including your time and services), always expect to get something in return. Failure to do this will result in lost blessings. God does not grant wishes, He honours your expectations (Proverbs 3:10, 23:18, 24:14, Genesis 8:21 and Luke 6:38).

4. You must learn the secret of giving your seeds specific assignments. Every seed sown by nature of creation has an ability to reproduce (Genesis 1:11).

5. Harvest comes from God through man. Look unto God alone and focus on Him as your source, do not look at the ability of man in order to be blessed (Psalm 17:14, 118:9).

6. Have respect for money. God rewards management more than giving. Learn the principles of (money) management if you want God to keep blessing you (Psalms 109: 17).
P.S. God does not give money, rather He gives ideas to make wealth. May God give you an idea that will be a solution to people’s problems in Jesus name.

This is a snippet into the wealth of divine knowledge that was released over the weekend, if you want the full package of the message, contact the publishers of this bulletin.

ABUNDANCE (Genesis 2:7-15)

I welcome you to the month of June 2018, which symbolically represents the month of “MAN.” This is because man was created on the sixth day. I decree that the Grace that bestowed dominion on man at creation will locate you this moment and lift you up beyond your imaginations in Jesus name. This month, I believe, you will experience the Hands of God over every aspect of your life in Jesus name. It is going to be the best month so far in your life. A month that the Glory of God will shine forth in you. A month of testimonies and victory over the works of the enemies. A month of divine health for and your entire house hold.
In the Bible text (Genesis 2:7 – 15), it is shown clearly that God is interested in mankind even before He created us, and I believe the following revelations from the passage is God’s mind-set for us and as you completely trust in Him this month you will not be disappointed.
Firstly, Genesis 2:7 says, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” You will agree with me that God is not a waster of resources nor time. Whatever God addresses His mind to do, He does wonderfully well and with good intentions and purpose. According to Psalm 139:14, “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” So, for the fact that you are a creation of God, He has a good intention and plan for your life, and I pray that that which the Lord intended for you at creation shall come to pass in Jesus name.
Secondly, Genesis 2:8 says, “And the Lord planted a garden eastward in Eden and there he put the man whom he had formed.“ The bible attributed the planting of the vineyard to God and not Adam. This is an indication that God’s original intention for man is not to suffer or go through pains before he eats. The Lord will wipe away your tears as you come to the understanding of this revelation today in Jesus name. From now, I decree concerning you that the Lord will reward your labour, no one will ever claim your reward and benefits, when you sow little you will reap much more in Jesus name. And wherever you turn to this month, abundance of blessings will be waiting for you.

PRAYER POINTS
1) Thank God and give Him praise for all the things He has done for you so far in the course of your existence. Also thank Him for the gift of life.
2) Father, let this month of June be a month of dominion and abundance for me in Jesus name.
3) I command the favour of the Lord that opens doors of blessings that the enemies cannot close to locate me this month in Jesus name.
4) Oh Lord, go ahead of me and make every crooked place straight before me in my going out and coming in this month in Jesus name.
5) I shall not be weak, sick nor weary this month in the mighty name of Jesus. i receive the strength of the Almighty God in Jesus name.

Shalom and Happy New Month!
