Turnaround greetings in the name of Jesus Christ.
We give God thanks for a most successful feasts making the 40th Year Anniversary of this Commission. To God be all the glory.
As we are all aware. “the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servant the prophets” – Amos 3:7
This has been our experience over the past 40 years. For instance, all the major events in this ministry over the years were foretold as far back as April 10, 1982, these include, power dimension of this commission, ministering across the nations of the earth, the building of a 50,000 – Seat capacity sanctuary and mission to the nations of the world, to mention but a few. The most recent prophetic alert took place on May 2nd, 2015 after the Liberation service in the morning of that Saturday. I had an usual encounter with God where He said, “I, the God of Wonder Double is visiting you”. This encounter led to the explosive church growth across our churches around the world. Here, at Canaanland, Faith Tabernacle experienced explosive growth that doubled the attendance twice that year. We saw the prophetic word fulfilled before our very eyes and God has continued to add to our Churches week after week ever since.
By that visitation, most members of this church are now kingdom advancement addicts with diverse testimonies of favour, liftings, healing and deliverance, restoration, protection, among others, all to the glory of God.
The Lord further said to me, “I am not only visiting you, but I will remain in your midst as long as you want me”. In 2019 the Wonder double God showed up again and doubled the number of churches of 2018 by the close of 2019, as we saw 5,082 churches planted in one years.
While we thought that we are going to be working towards the establishment of the newly planted churches, the Wonder double God came up again with a command to embark on the planting of 10,000 churches in 2020. Then COVID-19 global lockdown showed up. In spite of this assault on humanity, our God still confirmed His Word as we saw 10,404 churches planted across Nigeria and 1,300 across 35 other nations of the world. To God be all the glory.
But giving glory to God is the mystery behind going from glory to glory in the kingdom. Remember, the one leper moved from cleansing to wholeness through the power of intense thanksgiving and praise – Luke 17:12-19
We have seen quite some good in our 40 years ‘wilderness journey’, we are now set to see the enviable and the perfect from henceforth – Rom. 12:1-2
What God has done for us, both as a commission and as individuals in the last 40 years, even one month is not enough to respond in thanksgiving to all His marvelous acts in our midst.
Therefore, the prophetic focus for the month of May 2021 is: THANKSGIVING PRESERVES, MULTIPLIES & PERFECTS OUR BLESSINGS – Luke 17:12-19
