- Every true messenger must bear a true message from his sender.
- A messenger without a message has nothing meaningful to say.
- The impact of any messenger is in the validity of the message he bears.
- God will only confirm the word He gave to His messenger – Mark 16:15-20
Here at Winners, we have a 3-fold clearly defined message from the Lord. These 3 messages were delivered directly to me at different time. These include:
First, the message of faith. This is as contained in the mandate itself “The hour has come to liberate the world from all oppressions of the devil, through the preaching of the word of faith and I am sending you to undertake this task” – 1 Jhn. 5:4/Mark 11:23-24/Eph. 6:16 (May 2, 1981).
Secondly, the message of prosperity. I was on a mission trip to the US, when God spoke to me one early morning saying, “Get back home and make people rich” – 2Cor. 6:10/2Cor. 8:9/Deu. 8:18/2Cor. 9:6-8 (August 26, 1987).
Thirdly, the message of signs and wonders. God said: “It is time for change, prepare yourself for the imminent change of phase I have talked about over the years. It is the era of signs and wonder, it is a new dimension of a higher order, usher in this era with me, I am launching you into the apostolic phase of your ministry for pace setting. This is how this place has become a home of signs and wonders to many nations around the world – Psa. 82:5-7/Isa. 8:18/Jhn. 3:8/Jhn 17:18 (July 29 1992).
Therefore, what we have been experiencing in this church over the years has been God confirming His word before the eyes of all. To God alone be all the glory.
For nearly 40 years, God has never left Himself without a witness in our midst. What a faithful God we serve! As it is written, “Faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it” – 1 Thess. 5:24
Miracle Twin at 68
I am 68 years old and my husband, 77 years old. We got married 40 years and believed God for children immediately, but it was not forthcoming. This made us to visit many hospitals and herbal homes, but all attempts prove abortive. We then resigned our fate to God. We joined this church in 2010 on the invitation of my sister. Since we joined the church, we started hearing testimonies of many couples who have been barren, and they became mothers and fathers of children. These testimonies and the words from Bishop Oyedepo strengthen our faith and we believed that God would do our own. With time doctors discouraged us because of our ages, but we refused to be discouraged and refuse to adopt children. Based on the testimonies I keep hearing I started anointing my head and stomach every night. I also make sure my mantle is always with me every time. Sometimes around June 2019 we had the privilege to meet the Bishop and laid hands on us and declare that we will return with our testimonies. We believed and started rejoicing, holding on to the words by the Bishop. On 12th August 2019 after many tests and examinations, I was confirmed pregnant. I carried the pregnancy successfully and to the glory of God, on 15th April 2020, I delivered this twin, a boy, and a girl. To God alone be all the glory. – Mr & Mrs M. O. Adenuga.
I am a Master degree holder with additional qualifications but jobless for over 5 years. I have attended over 15 job interviews in Corporate and multi-national organizations, but none resulted In employment. A member of this church ministered salvation to me and told that Jesus is Lord. I surrendered my life fully to Christ and confessed that Jesus is Lord. That same day, someone who has forgotten me called me told me to come and resume in his company as Managing Director with immediate effect.
I resume office on Tuesday, 30th May, and attended board meeting that day where I was the GMD over three of his multi-million company with monthly remuneration of N600,000, official accommodation and as if that was not enough, I was given two vehicles for personal use as ownership of the cars were transferred to me same day. Indeed, there is God in this Church, He turned my situation around over night. I thank the God of this commission for terminating over 5 years joblessness in my life. Truly, Jesus is Lord. – Bro Mohammed D.
Brain Haemorrhage Healed!
“I was diagnosed with brain haemorrhage and hospitalized at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH). My blood pressure was 180/170 and I was placed on strong medications to sustain my health. I also defecated and urinated on my body. Then the doctor advised me to pray that I stop taking those drugs; otherwise, my bones would be weakened and I might become impotent.
Then my cousin brought me to this Church, when I entered the church, I felt goose bumps all over my body and I knew I was at the right place. While I was seated outside during one of the sessions, the Bishop said, ‘There was a pool called the pool of Bethesda and it had people with infirmities around it. They waited for the angel of the Lord to come trouble the waters and anyone who dived into it was healed’. He further declared, ‘Anyone who made contact with this ground tonight will never return with his infirmity’. From where I sat, I jumped and said, ‘I dive into it!’. Since then, I neither felt the symptoms nor laid on any hospital bed. – Victor Ime.
“Although I joined this Church in 2001, as at February 2004, I had worked as a legal practitioner for 12 years with less than N10,000.00 as savings anywhere in the world.
During one of the Business Breakthrough Summits, Bishop Oyedepo, while ministering said, ‘I will teach you what Harvard can never teach you’. I got interested. As he dwelt on 1 Kings 8:17-18, he said, ‘You will always do well, if the promotion of the Kingdom of God is in your heart’. Immediately, I resolved to make the advancement of God‘s Kingdom a priority in my life.
That marked the beginning of my financial breakthrough! From January 2, 2012, millions started flowing into my account. In a single transaction of legal advice, meetings and documentations, I received professional fees of 100 million naira. In 2016 alone, God gave me two mansions in Lagos worth 70 million and 150 million naira respectively. To God be all the glory!” – Banji B.
Delivered from Strange Poison!
“I live in France, Paris. Some years ago, I noticed that I experienced discomfort in my stomach. As a result, I became lean, my skin got darker and I was dying gradually.
While walking on the street after I left the hospital on a particular day, I was apprehended and deported to Nigeria. Meanwhile, I was already dying because of the poison in my stomach. When I arrived in Nigeria, I told my mother about the incidence, including my failing health. She said, ‘Let us go to Winners; I’m a member’. I refused and told her that I had taken several medications while in France to no avail. I also told her that the authorities in France probably knew that I would die and that was why I was deported to Nigeria. However, she insisted. Immediately we got to the Hope Entrance of the Church, without been prayed for by anyone, I started experiencing stomach upset. Suddenly, I felt pressed and asked for direction to the toilet.
Lo and behold, I that had not used the toilet for three weeks emptied my bowel. Since then, I became free and experienced total healing. Then, I realized that I had that experience for God to save my life and prove to me that miracles are real. Praise the Lord!”. – Iyoha David
