Here is a welcome note from Rev. Mrs. Caroline J. A. Okobi the General Overseer of New Anointing Deliverance Church to Christians home and abroad who will be at the 2016 convention tagged “Overflowing Joy”.
I welcome you to “Our Year of Overwhelming Joy”, “For Thou shall go out with Joy and be led forth with peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.” Isaiah 55:12.
Our God is set to continue what he’s already started in our lives for He will give direction and answers in everyone who stays on him. He is set to cause us to experience unspeakable Joy in our lives, families, businesses, homes and spiritual lives! For He will “grant to those who mourn in Zion – to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a FAINT SPIRIT; that they may be called Oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified. “They shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.
Strangers shall stand and tend your flocks; foreigners shall be your plowmen and vinedressers;
But you shall be called the priest of the Lord; they shall speak of you as the ministers of our God; you shall eat the wealth of the nations, and in their glory you shall boast.
Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion; instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot; therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting Joy”, Isaiah 61:4-7.
Violence shall no more be heard in your land, devastation or destruction within your borders; you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates praise.
The sun shall be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give you light; but the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your Sun shall no more go down, nor your moon withdraw itself; for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of mourning shall be ended.
Your people shall all be righteous; they shall possess the land forever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I might be glorified.
The least one shall become a clan, and the smallest one a mighty nation I am the Lord; in its time I will hasten it.” Isaiah 60:15-22.
In His word in
Therefore brethren, we must be strong and very courageous, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. We must be ready to keep peace with all the brethren and work together in love. The glory of God shall be your defense when you serve God in spirit and in truth. You have no need for defense because God’s presence will guarantee your safety and security.
May the presence of God and His favors be your portion every moment of your life. May the Lord bless and keep you in His care and May His shelter and protect you and your family from your enemies. Remember that the Lord is coming soon.
