Speakers at the five-day word conference organised by the All House on the Rock Churches have stressed how one’s destiny can be achieved in life. They also urged Christians to have clear relationship with their Maker and absolute faith in Him. The speakers, who spoke at the event were Presiding Bishop of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM), Bishop Mike Okonkwo; Dr. Bill Winston, founder and Pastor of Living Word Christian Centre; Bishop Tudor Bismark, Senior Pastor of New Life Covenant Church, Harare, Zimbabwe; Pastor Mensa Otabil, founder of International Central Gospel Church, Accra, Ghana; Rev. Funke Felix-Adejumo, President, Funke Felix Adejumo Foundation and Senior Pastor and founder of All House on the Rock Churches, Pastor Paul Adefarasin.

Bishop Okonkwo, who spoke on the Grace to Fulfil Destiny, admonished Christians to enjoy their Christianity and live in liberty. According to him, “Jesus loves you unconditionally and His thoughts towards you are only of good; to bring you to an expected end.”

While speaking on restoring the years, Winston called on Christians to exercise absolute faith in God to please Him. He noted: “It’s going to take absolute faith in God to do what He has called you for. Do not impede your success by shrinking God to something small. He’s a lot bigger and more capable than what you constrain Him to within your mind.”

Dr. Otabil, who spoke on the rules to adopt in the Corridors of Power, explained that transformation is about engaging the world’s systems to change it and not by participating in its sin. He encouraged Christians to engage the world.

Stressing on the need for this generation to do the right thing, Bishop Bismark said: “Wealth is for stewardship and God wants you to be wealthy. God is ready to move you to your purpose and that purpose is a wealthy place.”

Funke Felix Adejumo, who dwelt on ‘Destiny Here I Come,’ charged Christians on the need to manage their relationships very well. She observed: “Throughout your life journey, you will need people. Life is about relationships. It is, therefore, important that you learn how to manage your relationships correctly.”

While rounding off the Sunday Celebration Service, the Senior Pastor of All House On The Rock Churches, Paul Adefarasin, urged Christians to ensure that their values are rooted in Christ, saying, “The way you handle the stewardship of money is a representation of your values. When you have your values rooted in Christ, you will use your money the right way.”
