RCCG Holy Ghost Congress 2017 Begins Today: Repost

This year’s Holy Ghost Congress of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) kicks off today at the church’s Redemption Camp, Km 46, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. 

With the theme “Songs of Victory” the Congress will runs till December 9, each day packed with various activities, organisers say.

Among those to minister at the Congress are Enoch Adeboye, general overseer, worldwide, and other preachers, such as Bishop Tudor Bismarck, Stephen Rathod (US), Mensa Otabil (Ghana), S.K. Abiara, Mike Okonkwo,  Ayo Oritsejafor, and Joe Imakando.

The Congress is not all about sermons, according to a programme released by organisers. Built in are special sessions for talks on various aspects of life. 

They include such topics as: Affordable diet for good health; Identifying and operating a profitable retail business; Preservation of agricultural produce; Small scale vegetable farming; The ABC of personal and family security; Managing family finances in a depressed economy; and The pitfalls on the journey to marriage.

Expected at the Congress are members of the church from over 196 countries where the church has presence, and other people who would be attending for various spiritual reasons. 

Usually, with the twin auditoriums of the church full at the peak of the event, attendance is put at over six over million people. Many other people, who are not opportune to attend, are expected to participate through viewing centres in the 196 countries.

RCCG holds monthly Holy Ghost Services at the Redemption Camp, which is rounded off with a Congress in December.  

According to Pastor Adeboye, the Holy Ghost Service was first held in 1986.

He recalls in a testimony: “I was in London preparing the Sunday school booklet for the mission when I heard from God. He said, ‘Son, what do you want for your birthday?’

‘I was shocked. The reason I was shocked was that: I didn’t know God would be interested in my birthday., And secondly,  I didn’t know He could be asking me for about what I wanted as present.

“So I said, ‘Lord if that is you, please repeat the question.’

“He assured me it was Him and asked again what I wanted as a birthday present.

“I replied, ‘What I want is that all my members will get miracles.’

“He asked, ‘Is that’s all?’

“I replied: ‘That’s all I want.’

“Then He said, ‘In that case when you get home, call them together and I will give them whatever they ask for.’

“I needed to call the service a name, so I asked Him.

“And He said: ‘Holy Ghost Service.’

“What happened at the first Holy Ghost Service was wonderful. And when we finished, my people came to me to request that I consulted God for the service to hold every year.
God granted the request.

“But after some time, members of the church suggested that I should request for a monthly Holy Ghost Service. And that was granted.”

Rejoice In The Lord Always


Sometimes the squabbles of church can be discouraging and cause us to lose sight of the incredible blessings we have in God’s family. We have many reasons to rejoice in the Lord. Let’s not lose sight of those, especially when those around us get caught up in pettiness and rivalry. Let’s remember our hope is in the crucified Nazarene, who is also our resurrected Lord and ever present saviour. 

My Fortress, My Refuge 

But I will sing if your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love, for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. (Psalm 59:16)

Who else will I run to in time of trouble in my life; my parents or friends will not satisfy me the way my heavenly father will settle me in time of confusion, trouble and distress. I will dance and sing to His Holy name for He alone is worthy of my praise. 

Today instead of seeking a seer, fortune teller, an herbalist or oracle to solve your problems and cool your troubles, look up to your heavenly father and put all your troubles in His presence by praising, worshipping and thanking Him.

Morning guys and have a great Friday!!! 

The Power of Praise 


When was the last time you prayed and didn’t request things from God and you simply thanked and praised Him?  Why not use today as a day of thanks and praise?  Don’t ask for anything; just praise and thank the Father. I praise Him for who he is, what he has done, and what he us going to do!  Thank Him for blessing you, saving you, and bringing you into His glory!  Let today be a day if thanks and praise. 

Just like uncle David, sometimes I just start twisting my waist and dancing to God without music sometimes. But most times when I start jamming some hillsong, darlene, kari jobe and Jesus culture, am always on fire in the next level of worship and praise. 

Praises move God when He sees your heart filled with joy praising Him no matter the circumstances we facing. He will bless you more than you ever expected.
