Bishop Taiwo Adelakun, the Presiding Bishop of Victory International Church, Ibadan, who was the guest minister at the March 17 Sunday first service emphasized the need for believers to have faith in order to receive the manifestation of their covenant promises. According to him, there are always conditions precedent to every promise of God, and faith is the condition for possibility. “If you can believe, all things are possible,” he said.
Speaking from Mark 9:23, Psalm 89:33-35 and Genesis 28:29, he said that God is a covenant keeping God who is looking for covenant-keeping people. He noted that God is always true and will never fail to fulfill His promise to His own no matter what happens. Believers, however, need to hold on to their faith in order to get the fulfillment of His promises in their lives no matter their circumstances, he stated.
According to the estate surveyor-turned-preacher, the six keys to covenant wealth are liberality and generosity; ingenuity and excellent spirit; divine ideas and innovations; right company; and integrity and love. “Covenant wealth is not materialism because that one does not endure. Covenant wealth is generational and is not gotten through labour, but by favour,” he said.
Other scriptural quotations include 2 Corinthians 9:6, Job 32:8-9, Proverbs 13:20 and Psalm 25:21.
