Blessings are not on lockdown

Even under their masks, it was impossible not to notice the excitement, joy and hope in the eyes of those who took part in the service at the Universal Church last Sunday. Between the barrage of varied online comments and live accounts attesting to people feeling better after the powerful prayer, it would seem that though the country is on lockdown, faith and miracles are most definitely not— no matter the distance.

Attendees and online participants were reminded that if God is the same today, miracles cannot therefore be a thing of the past and the key to achieving this priceless miracle is a person’s faith in the Word of God.

The congregates, who were seated metres apart, were invited to put this faith into action throughout the week by using the Holy Oil in whatever area of their life is needing intercession from God.

Oil has always been used as a symbol of God’s presence and His Spirit. In the past some of its many uses were to anoint new kings, to sanctify an object or person, and for the healing of the sick.

As it was emphasized in the service, the oil is just an instrument in God’s hands, a point of contact between them and Him. When faith is added to the mix, it’s like sending a signal flare to God that we are in need of His help.

Many people are struggling during this period of social isolation, but seeing how they were uplifted through a word of faith during the service was priceless. Even though we may be distant physically, they left knowing that God is ever so close to them as long as they remain close to Him.

We know that the positive changes that people experienced on Sunday is just the beginning and many others will see God’s power manifested in their lives if they believe.

As places of worship are open to all members of the public who want to receive spiritual strength during these troubling times, you are invited to join us to learn how you can use your faith to make the best use of the Holy Oil.
