Pastor Seun Shobo of The Fountain of Life Church, Ilupeju, Lagos, has argued that God’s original design for man came with a mandate of authority.
He arrived at the position during t
he February 18, 2021, Thursday Showers service, while preaching on the topic, The Believers’ Authority.
Pastor Seun Shobo, who took his scripture reference from Genesis 1:26, Mathew 16:19, Ephesians 1:22, Mathew 28:18, Romans 8:11, Mark 4:35-41, Job 32:8, and Hebrews 5:14, posited that as a result of sin, man lost the authority that God had given to him.
“But God sent His Son to man to restore his position of authority. The authority of the children is needed desperately. As God’s children, this is the time our authority should be on display because the earth is awaiting the manifestation of the sons of God. Your authority is the manifestation of God,” Pastor Seun Shobo added.
The clergy, whilst hinting to the worshippers that if they fail in the days of adversity, their strength is small, advised that they should not allow the devil to bully them out of their possessions.
Pastor Seun Shobo charged Fountaineers to exercise the authority God has given to them.
