FULFILLING CHRIST’S GREAT COMMISSION
- Never pity missionaries, envy them. They are where the real action is- where life and death, sin and grave, Heaven and Hell converge- Robert C Shamon.
- You have one business on earth: to save souls- John Wesley.
- Depend on it, God work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply. He is too wise a God to frustrate His purpose for lack of funds and He can just as easily supply them ahead of time as afterwards and He much prefer doing so.
God isn’t looking for people of great faith but for individual ready to follow Him.
God uses men who are weak and flexible enough to lean on Him.
(Hudson Taylor Missionary to China)
- Go straight for souls and go for the worst- William Booth.
- I have but one candle of life to burn and I would rather burn it in a land filled with darkness than in a land flooded with light. – John Keith falconer.
- If you expect great things from God, attempt great things for God.
To know the will of God, we need an open Bible and an open map
William Carey, a pioneer Missionary to India
- The spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions. The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become- Henry Martyn.
- People think I am a fool for giving up what I cannot keep to serve Christ that they believe I cannot see. If it were possible for me to keep my life forever, I would have been one of the leading figures that would pursue earthly trivialities with all the strength I have in me. I give up what I cannot keep to pursue Christ’s mission in order to gain that which I cannot lose.
Prophet Toyin Oluwibe (Men who saw revival)
THE CAMBRIDGE SEVEN ON MISSION FIELD
Harold Schofield, a brilliant Oxford doctor who had laboured as a Missionary in China for many years, was on his knees praying. “Lord give me missionaries from British Universities to help in China”.
The day he died seven Cambridge Students volunteered to leave behind cosy lives of wealth and privilege to serve God in whatever way they were led. Among these seven was C.T Studd, he came from one of the richest families in England. He Studied Law at Cambridge University and was an outstanding cricket player in England. His cricket career at Cambridge was described as “One long blaze of cricketing glory”. No one could stir the English as C.T Stud could; he was simply England’s most exciting athlete in his generation.
C.T Studd went to hear D.L Moody as a backslidden Christian, after the ministration, he had passion for souls. These are his words when he finally won a soul to Christ. ‘I cannot tell you what joy it gave me to bring the first soul to the Lord Jesus Christ. I ‘ve tasted almost all the pleasures this world can give, I do not suppose they were compared to the joy than the saving of that one soul gave me.
C.T Studd with his six other classmates became interested in China and gave up all their great inheritance to Orphanage home and Christian organization to pursue a raw and practical faith based Missionary work which led to great harvest of souls in China.
THE REPORT OF IKIRUN, OSUN STATE CRUSADE
On getting to Ikirun, Osun state, we discovered that the land still needs serious evangelistic work because more than 85% of the population are Muslims. Base on this, we decided to provide a wider publicity for the crusade by moving to Osun State Broadcasting Corporation to announce the power of our Lord Jesus to heal and deliver. The publicity ran simultaneously on their Radio and Television for one week.
After the first Television broadcast there was a great persecution from some quarters because they were not comfortable with the claim that Jesus can heal and deliver. The representative from OSBC called Prophet Toyin Oluwibe to inform him about what was going and the man of God told the representative to send down two or more Journalists to the venue of the crusade to ascertain the claim that Jesus can heal and deliver.
THE FIRST DAY
The minister’s Conference took place At Christ Action Church, Ogundijo Area, Second Street, Maboreje, Ikirun, Osun State. Prophet Toyin Oluwibe ministered on the theme “KNOW YOUR CALLING”. It was a wonderful moment in the presence of God as many Pastors personally demanded for the video CDs of the message. Watch out for the video clip of the personal testimonies of some ministers during the Conference on Facebook and other social media platforms.
In the evening, the crusade took place at the Open Space at Kolade Shopping Complex, Eko Ende Road, Ikirun, Osun State. The man of God ministered on “JESUS THE MIRACLE WORKER”. After the ministration he led them in prayer and asked for those who were sick to come out. It was only few sick people that came out and God delivered them.
THE SECOND DAY
The man of God announced to the people on the crusade ground that as the crusade was going on some evil people of the land were also holding a meeting to scatter the meeting but God had taken control. He asked people that God has called to come out for the infilling of the power from the most high. He offered a short prayer from the podium and within short period of time they witnessed the infilling of the Holy Spirit as some of them were vibrating under the influence of the Holy spirit. At this point, there was a rainfall but to the glory of God the crusade continues. The man of God ministered on “THE POWER OF GOD”. He called on the Muslims to bring those that are blind, lame and deaf to the crusade ground and forget about their religion and belief.
THE THIRD DAY
The man of God ministered on the topic “HOLD UNTO YOUR FAITH, JESUS WILL SOON COME”. He told the Christians in Ikirun that Ikirun is an on-going building project; That Jesus revealed to him that He would send His messengers to Ikirun from time to time to build it to the level assigned to each of them; That this process will continue for some years till revival will break out in Ikirun and many Muslims will give their lives to Christ. He said God has sent him to Ikirun to build the house up to the level assigned to him and that shortly after his departure another messenger will be sent to build up to the level assigned to him.
He admonished the Christians in the land never to give up but hold on to their faith.
We give glory to God for counting us worthy to be part of the labourers He employed for His on-going project in Ikirun. This is a clarion call to Christian communities all over the world that Ikirun needs our prayers. More than 85% are Muslim!
