40 Days Fast for RCCG Church Members Worldwide
Pastor Adeboye announces a 40 days Fast for RCCG Church Members Worldwide
Happy New Year to you and yours, this year has been declared a better year than the last by Almighty God through the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God.
Those who prefer marathon liquid fast should do 20 days liquid. Morning and evening prayer sessions should be held where possible during the fast, otherwise, daily evening prayer to be held at 6pm.
2 Kings 13:15-19
“And Elisha said unto him, Take bow and arrows. And he took unto him bow and arrows. And he said to the king of Israel; Put thine hand upon the bow. And he put his hand upon it: and Elisha put his hands upon the king’s hands. And he said, Open the window eastward. And he opened it. Then Elisha said, Shoot. And he shot. And he said, The arrow of the Lord’s deliverance, and the arrow of deliverance from Syria: for thou shalt smite the Syrians in Aphek, till thou have consumed them. And he said, Take the arrows. And he took them. And he said unto the king of Israel, Smite upon the ground. And he smote thrice, and stayed. And the man of God was wroth with him, and said, Thou shouldest have smitten five or six times; then hadst thou smitten Syria till thou hadst consumed it: whereas now thou shalt smite Syria but thrice.” (KJV)
The ‘bow and arrows‘ in the days of Elisha could be seen today as ‘fasting and prayers’. Like the Syrians in Aphek, there are enemies in our land, in our family, in the Church and even in our lives that must be smitten. The siege is inevitable if they are not totally destroyed.
As we take our bow and arrows, we will not shoot for awhile and stop like the king of Israel erroneously acted. But we will shoot again and again “till every foe is vanquished and Christ is Lord indeed.”
These One Hundred Days of fasting and prayers are days of the arrow of the Lord’s deliverance, and the arrow of deliverance from our enemies: we shalt smite the enemies around us till we have consumed them.
Just as Elisha was sent to the king, God has sent our father-in- the- Lord, Daddy E. A. Adeboye, to the Church to take the arrows and shoot. Let’s take our bow and arrows and shoot continuously to experience VICTORIOUS OVERFLOW over our enemies, this New Year.
