Pastor Dapo Williams of The Fountain of Life Church (TFOLC) has re-echoed the need for Christians to be spiritually conscious.
His advice to the congregation came while ministering during the second service on Sunday, August 22, at the TFOLC headquarters, Ilupeju, Lagos State.
The minister titled his sermon “Unveiling the Mystery of Dedications” and maintained that “life is spiritual, and the spiritual realm is very legalistic.’
Using Luke 2:21-40 as his main text, he talked about the dedication of the Lord Jesus Christ as an infant and what that meant for the prophets Simeon and Anna, who were present.
He said experiences from spiritual knowledge and encounters make the Word of God sweeter than the honeycomb. But, according to him, non-familiarity and understanding of the Word of God empower the devil to make the lives of unserious Christians difficult.
Believers must therefore get acquainted with the Truth to live above the activities of the wicked one, he added.
While emphasizing the importance of dedication, he said cities and nations could be dedicated to God, citing Jos and the United States.
On the other hand, nations could also be dedicated to the devil. Finally, he drew the congregation’s attention to the serious spiritual fights over the two examples he gave, maintaining that “faith is a fight, and life is spiritual”.
Pastor Dapo explained that dedication must be accompanied by a sacrifice to align with the patterns of Scripture. He used 2 Chronicles 7:1–5 to back up his point and stressed that going with divine guidance was the best way to ensure spiritual rules were well followed.
