Pastor E.A. Adeboye declared it at the last Holy Ghost service – “The Recession is over!”. He will be delighted to see all of you, have you hook up by internet and indeed cordially invites and welcomes you to be part of Holy Ghost Congress 2009 – Dec 14th -19th. We thank the Lord for all He has done in your lives, families, work, churches and nations since the last Congress. We give Him all the glory for His faithfulness, protection, provisions and travelling mercies over the past one year.
The Holy Ghost Congress, marked for six days from the second Monday in December, has brought fresh impetus to the celebration of the best ever gift to mankind – salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Like the maiden edition in December, 1998 the programme draws large crowds numbering in the millions who gather for worship, scriptural expositions, intercessions and special ministrations. The 1998 event, then a one day affair held on the sprawling expanse of beach beside the Lagos-Epe Express way in South West Nigeria was reported to have had over four million worshippers making it the single largest gathering of its kind at that time…
The theme of the Congress is OUR GOD REIGNS! From seeing earthly kings and presidents, we should have a good idea of what it means to reign. When the King of kings and the Lord of lords Himself reigns, it is a different matter altogether. The Bible show us some pictures of what happens when the King of Glory reigns.
Do you want Him to reign in your life? Very well. All you need to do is to pay attention to Him. Prayerfully and meditatively attend all the morning, afternoon and evening sessions. As the King of kings, He may choose to intervene in your situation at any time. Your part is to be ready and available. Be expectant. This is going to be an unforgettable Congress. Just let Him reign in your life and as you come in faith, you will go home testifying. Praise and worship Him for what He has already done and for what He will do. I welcome you to be part of the Holy Ghost Congress 2009 in the mighty name of Jesus!
