  1. Rev. Dr Paul Jinadu - General Overseer, New Covenant Church Worldwide

    Some people have been asking if there is a word from the Lord I can pass on to the church at this time of global pandemic? A word to bring comfort and re-assurance that the Lord is still on the throne, and He will never forget His own. Yes, there is a word. I only wish the Lord had given me one much earlier than now.

    I just got a picture. Covid-19 global virus attack is a baby. By comparison to its mother, it is a baby. If a baby that could hardly walk can bring the world system, health and wealth, to its knees, then what will happen if the mother of all pandemics is unleashed?

    The picture I got was that of an iceberg. What we see on the surface is little compared to the submerged ‘mother’. In other words, the unseen pandemic has been raging for years. Undetected and unfelt in the physical realm. It is through the grace of God, and in answer to a praying Church, that God allowed the baby to raise its ugly head now. So we can have a taste of the silent war that has been raging in the spiritual realm for years, costly lives and creating an immunity against God. The world is just not believing in God, they defy Him.

    “For I am the Lord, I do not change; therefore, you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob” (Malachi 3:6).

    The truth of God is that He does not change. Therefore, whatever He says you are is what you are.  

    As a child of God, you have many benefits. One of these benefits is that you can enforce your victory. Enforcing our victory is a responsibility that is left for us, it is not the Lord’s responsibility, because He has given us spiritual weapons.

    “4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).

    Victory is a win over a challenging situation or an opponent. The world is full of challenging circumstances, but the Lord’s promise to us is that everyone who is born of God is an overcomer. If you have confessed Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you are born of God. Your faith in the Son of God gives you victory over the world. Your faith in Jesus Christ causes you to have control over storms of life.

    “8 Now it happened one day that Elisha went to Shunem, where there was a notable woman, and she persuaded him to eat some food. So it was, as often as he passed by, he would turn in there to eat some food. 9 And she said to her husband, “Look now, I know that this is a holy man of God, who passes by us regularly. 10 Please, let us make a small upper room on the wall; and let us put a bed for him there, and a table and a chair and a lampstand; so it will be, whenever he comes to us, he can turn in there” (2 Kings 4:8-10).

    In 2 Kings chapter 4:8-37, the Bible records the account of a Shunamite woman, who showed hospitality to prophet Elisha. She was wealthy but had no child, and her husband was old. In return for her act of service to Elisha, the Lord rewarded her with a long-forgotten desire of her heart. The Lord gave her victory over childlessness. As a child of God, there is never a time when it is not right to do the right thing, and there is never a time to do the wrong thing. Our Lord Jesus went about doing good.

  4. Rev'd Dele Amusan

    “Then He got into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless, at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking” (Luke 5:3-6).

    Simon Peter was an experienced fisherman who had toiled all night without success. Therefore, when the Lord asked him to launch out into the deep, his initial reaction was to justify why there was no need to do so. I don’t think it will work but in obedience to your word, I will lower the nets again. He obeyed and caught a large haul of fish in the place where he had previously caught nothing. Outstanding results come from our simple obedience to the word of the Master. The word can come from different sources. It could be from the pulpit, during your personal, family devotion or other sources. Acting on the word puts you on a higher pedestal than your counterparts. When we do what God wants us to do at the time, He wants us to do it, there is an anointing on it. If we delay it becomes harder.
