Final Remarks from Pastor E.A Adeboye
He started on the note that when Jesus taught his disciples to pray, after he had said, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be thy name..”, the next thing he said was that God’s kingdom should come. This, Pastor Adeboye said, was so because God’s kingdom coming was uppermost on Jesus’ mind.
Following this, Pastor Adeboye noted that for the kingdom of God to come in full on the Earth here, God needs us his children to manifest his power and his Glory. He needs us to show the world that our God is the Almighty.
Reiterating his point, Pastor Adeboye said that to establish the kingdom of God on the earth, we need to demonstrate the power of the Most High God in an unprecedented manner. He referred to the time Jesus told his disciples that they would receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon them so that they can be witnesses unto him (that is, Jesus). Pastor Adeboye clarified that what Jesus meant was that power will be there to enable his disciples manifest how powerful the kingdom of God is.
He also gave the instance of the day of Pentecost when Peter preached just one sermon but won 3,000 souls. In contrast to this, when Peter demonstrated the power of the Almighty God in making the lame man by the Beautiful Gate to walk, the sermon that succeeded this particular miracle won 5,000 souls. To this, Pastor Adeboye noted that a single miracle can do much more for God than hours spent in preaching in Esoteric language or doing theological gymnastics.
After this, Pastor Adeboye prayed for the entire congregation that at the end of WAFBEC, they would manifest the power of the Most High God doing miracles, signs and wonders for God so that ultimately, the kingdom of God would truly come on the face of the Earth.
