Church Easter retreat begins today
Pastor Asemota said it will afford participants an uncommon opportunity to experience the supernatural power of God in their lives
Pastor Asemota said it will afford participants an uncommon opportunity to experience the supernatural power of God in their lives, Daily Independent reports.
While announcing the retreat with the theme, ‘The Power of His Cross’, Asemota stated that the programme is coming at an auspicious time in the history of Nigeria when all citizens need to seek divine intervention in their lives.
“As individuals, at this point in time, we need that supernatural power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead to meet the challenges of life. As a nation also, the power of the cross is needed to redeem us from the socio-economic and spiritual hopelessness to which the country has plunged. So, no matter which angle you may look at it- individual or collective- we need that awesome power of the cross,” he said.
According to him, the retreat will help participants to operate on a higher spiritual frequency, enjoy victorious and abundant life as well as discover the pathway to supernatural living.
He also disclosed that the programme will hold at the Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC), Km 42, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, stressing that like other retreats in the past, the Easter gathering will feature concentrated messages from Pastor William Kumuyi, the General Superintendent and other anointed ministers of the church; seminars, workshops, soul-lifting choir renditions and prayer ministrations.
Reports say according to him, the programme will serve to meet diverse spiritually inclined interests and will be beneficial to everyone – sinners and saints – pointing out that it will provide them with the opportunity to make peace with their maker (salvation of souls) and afford believers the opportunity to re-dedicate themselves to the service of God.
The retreat which will be residential, he added, will also be streamed live via satellite from DLCC to other centres in Nigeria, Africa, Europe, America and other continents of the world where the church has its branches.
The Church secretary gave the assurance that, like the previous editions, the Easter retreat will help develop in participants the needed resolve to contend with all earthly challenges,while keeping heaven in view at all times,adding that testimonies of supernatural deliverances and all round miracles had always been a common place at such gatherings.
Over the years, the Deeper Christian Life Ministry (DCLM) has recognized retreats as important aspect of its programmes. The leadership of the church believes that spiritual retreats are necessary to keep a believer on track while preparing the church for the soon return of Christ.
