Explaining how to respond to all the happenings in the country in the past few weeks, Pastor
Taiwo, in his ministration at the October 25 Sunday service, likened the burdens in the hearts of
Nigerian youths and their recent reactions against brutalities, injustice and wickedness to the
days of Habakkuk where evil, wickedness and injustice abound.
According to him, God’s response to such outcries is to raise someone who would deliver His will and intentions.
Speaking from Habakkuk 2:1, Habakkuk 1:1-4 and 1 Samuel 17:34-36, Pastor said that when God wants to work, He uses men; where men are not available He turned to women and where women are found wanting, He turns to children and youths.
These, the clergy said, have been His ways in the Bible.
The clergy revealed that God will deal with everyone involved in the abuse of power in the country. “What we have seen in the past few weeks is the beginning of what God will do in Nigeria,” he said. “God has started His work of redemption in Nigeria and He will complete it. He will deal with every form of violence, promotion of evil and occultism in Nigeria.”
Pastor Taiwo advised Nigerian youths to give peace a chance with a further position that they should be assured that the government would look into their demands.
He also urged the Nigerian Government to provide a platform for young leaders who would decisively tackle issues of youth unemployment, homelessness, and abject poverty in the nation.
He finally urged believers to ask for His mercy by faith.
“We need God’s mercy for our nation so that the lives our youths can be preserved. Just as Habakkuk pleaded for His mercy also, we need to ask for His mercy for our nation,” he urged.
WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT FROM PASTOR NOMTHI
Taking the promise of the week from the Book of Isaiah 59:19, Pastor Nomthi at the October 25
Sunday service encouraged believers not to change their positive confessions regardless of what is happening around them, noting that the current situation in the country should not overwhelm them to despondency.
She urged them to trust God to intervene in the situation of the country and avenge on
anything that wants to destroy the peace of Nigeria.
In her words, “The Spirit of God is raising a standard against the enemies. The enemies will drown in the flood of the word of God. But when we stop praising God, we would continue to be at the same level as the enemies and God forbid this.”
