CAC to witness unprecedented expansion in 10 years – General Superintendent

Published

on

The authorities of Christ Apostolic Church have set the target of seven years to expand the capacity of the church.
The General Superintendent, Christ Apostolic Church, Pastor  James Onagwa, stated this while welcoming pastors in the mission to the 2019 Annual Pastors’ Conference at Alasepe Prayer Mountain, Ikire, Osun State.
Pastor Onagwa said within the next seven year, their target was to raise several evangelists from every tribe and tongue to reach the unreached with the gospel of Christ.
According to him “within 10 years, God willing, we will reach every family under the sun to the extent that every family will have a CAC member in their homes.
“This is because we are divinely saddled with the responsibility of bringing this rotten world back to God who cherishes holiness and Godliness.
Pastor Onagwa, who noted that neglect of the womenfolk in evangelism had caused a lot of setback, said the new authorities of the church had resolved to empower them for world evangelization, saying every hand must be on deck to move the mission forward and restore God’s glory back to the church.
Speaking on discipline among ministers, the General Superintendent said “As we had earlier pointed out at the beginning of this new administration, we will ensure and embark on practical staff discipline as one the means for our structural development in all centers.
“All ministers with questionable characters, whose ministry had brought shame and disrepute to our mission may be advised to withdraw their services or seek other employment or in the alternative, start their own ministry outside Christ Apostolic Church”  Onagwa said.
The President Christ Apostolic Church worldwide, Pastor Henry Ojo, noted that the missionary had significant achievements between last year and now, adding that the church would continue to strength the capacity of ministers within the mission.
The CAC President urged politicians in the country to sincerely work on the nation’s security, lamenting that kidnapping and killing had become the order of the day in Nigeria.
Pastor Ojo called on those in power to stop deceiving people with their election campaign only to forget their constituencies after getting to power.

Covid-19: TB Joshua virtually prays for, heals patients in isolation centres

Prophet TB Joshua praying for Covid-19 patients

Founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T.B. Joshua, is iinnthe news again as he prays for the healing for those afflicted with COVID-19 in an Isolation Centre in Honduras, Central America.

In a video posted to Emmanuel TV’s YouTube Channel, the cleric is seen praying for bedridden patients hooked up to oxygen tanks and surrounded by hospital staff heavily laden with protective gear.

“Where can we go from God’s presence? Distance is not a barrier because He is Spirit,” Joshua declared in front of several huge screens relaying in real-time the footage from the several wards within the Honduran Isolation Centre.

“By the power of the Holy Spirit – that affliction, that COVID-19 – be flushed out,” he said, stretching his hands towards the dozens of patients on the multiple screens at the Emmanuel TV Studios in Lagos, during a programme tagged ‘Interactive Prayer Session’.

During the prayer – which was translated simultaneously into Spanish – several patients began to involuntarily ‘vomit’ whilst others rose to their feet from their hospital beds, waved their hands joyously and removed the oxygen apparatus fixed to their nose as a sign of “supernatural healing”.

“Jesus that has freed you will help you to maintain your miracle. Make the Word of God the standard for your life,” Joshua counselled after declaring dozens of COVID-19 patients “free”

“I sensed the healing and delivering power of God,” explained Aracely, one of the Honduran patients, after the prayer. “I felt my lungs fill up with air… I’m no longer using the oxygen mask,” she testified.

“I couldn’t go to the toilet before but immediately after the prayer, I felt like rushing to the toilet,” another patient immediately acknowledged. “I passed out a lot of foul substance – that was the power of the prayer.”

“I saw a white light that illuminated me and asked me to remove my oxygen mask,” another lady stated. “I’m not choking any longer,” she excitedly stated, with others testifying their sense of smell and taste was restored and their strength revitalized following the prayer.

Afterwards, representatives of the medical staff at the hospital thanked Joshua for his prayers and support.

The video concluded by stressing that it was not intended to “discourage anyone from seeking medical treatment” as “good Christians are good citizens”.

“If you don’t believe in God with medicine, you cannot believe in God without medicine,” Joshua said.

Last month, the World Health Organisation reacted to a video in which a Cameroonian medical doctor was ‘healed’ of COVID-19 after receiving “interactive prayer” from Joshua’s ministry, acknowledging “spiritual leadership is very important in a time like this”.

Since starting its ‘Interactive Prayer Sessions’ – in which online prayer is offered via video calls – Joshua’s ministry has prayed for COVID-19 patients from around the world, prompting the cleric to recently declare his readiness to freely pray for those in Isolation Centers.

Joshua, who had been absent for seven weeks from Emmanuel TV’s broadcasts, earlier shared a sermon titled ‘Mistakes Are Correctable’

“We wake up in the morning determined to get it right. Before we know it, we have missed the mark,” Joshua began, stressing that “making a mistake” was not the issue but “how we handle it matters.

“For instance, the issue of COVID-19 is a mistake. However, how we are handling it has led us to where we are today,” he continued, citing the uncertainties and “twists and turns of life”.

“If you make a mistake, as we all do sometimes, don’t run from God; run to Him,” Joshua taught, adding that mistakes actually “make Christian life more interesting and more valuable” and serve as a means to “draw us closer to God”.

The Senior Pastor, Trinity House, Ituah Ighodalo, on Sunday morning lost his beautiful wife, Ibidun Ighodalo to the cold hands of death.

Ibidun was reported to have died of cardiac arrest this morning around 2am.

The cleric however went ahead to conduct a funeral service which had already been sheduled before the sad news broke out.

The cleric, who conducted the funeral service of Deji Modupe Johnson, the grandson of industrialist, Razak Okoya, said he was shattered by the death of his wife but life must go on.

At the funeral, the cleric spoke about how transient life is and how important it is to live in accordance with the will of God.

Ituah is normally cheerful but he was sombre and quite philosophical in the video obtained by our correspondent.

He said, “For the past 72 and 84 hours, everywhere tensed, confused, frightening, and disturbing but here we are today. I mean, if they had told us last week Sunday that we will be here to celebrate Ayodeji’s life, we’ll say it’s not possible…

“But here we are right now and here he is. And of course, a lot of you know that I really shouldn’t be here but that’s how life is. So, this morning, I received a call that shattered my life but life must go on.”

Ituah and Ibidunni were married for 13 years before her sudden demise in Port Harcourt. Ibidunni Ighodalo successfully ran her events company, Elizabeth R,as well as her foundation, Ibidun Ighodalo Foundation, a foundation designed to “bring joy to the hearts of couples through their fertility journey”.
