The Founder and general overseer of the International God’s Way Church has admonished Christians to remain resolute in times of ‘storms and turbulence’ and build their ‘foundation’ on Jesus Christ
Bishop Daniel Obinim who many believe to be an Angel of God said, righteous people may face many afflictions but will triumph over all. Bishop Obinim who was delivering a sermon at the Kumasi branch of his church in Kenyasi told his congregation to stand solid as Christians throughout bad and trouble phase of their lives.
“The Bible says numerous are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord deliver them from all. The Bible didn’t enumerate the afflictions but said many, many can be seven, and hundreds, thousands but the lord says he will deliver you from all. There are a number of you here going through tribulations, your battling for your health, some have financial problems others are desolate, barren but the Lord want me to tell you today that he will deliver you from all” he said amidst yells and applauds.
“Many of you are fighting different form of weapons, bad things are happening to you, but remember this verse. The righteous person will go through challenges but the Lord will deliver him. Here the Bible talks about the righteous, so if you are not righteous the Bible does not include you. If your Foundation is on Jesus Christ you will never fail no matter the storm.” He said
“When you read Isaiah 54:17, the Bible makes it clear that; no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from the LORD” he quoted
“Since I started my ministry sixteen years ago, I have faced storms but in all I succeed. People wonder how it happens; I tell them my foundation is on Jesus Christ! If they want, they should come and dig inside my church shred off the roof and search everywhere there will not find any charm or magic because my foundation is laid on Jesus Christ” he said amidst cheers and jubilations from thousand people who have gathered at the church to listen to the man of God.
“if you have gone to a Mallam, or fetish priest for help, your end is coming, you will fall and will not rise again, if you foundation is on a mallam, juju man, or the devil, you will fail, you cannot stand the times of challenges but my foundation is on my father Jesus Christ, pointing to the picture of Jesus Christ on the pulpit.
This attracted shouts and jubilations and the congregation moved in front of the pulpit to urge him on while he preached with enthusiasm and lamentation.
