This was the message preached on Sunday by Rev Prophet Dr S. V. O Okpere (JP), at Deliverance Holy Mission Int’l Inc headquarters Benin City. Addressing the Congregation at the 20th day of the on going 30days of concealment Prayer and fasting, he enjoined believers in Christ Jesus, to understand the importance of the ministry of intercessions and it’s benefits and embrace it. Noting that, the Early Christians were known by intercessions. Prophet Sunday Okpere who supported his message with the Scripture he took in Acts 12:1-12, Romans 8:34, 1st Timothy 2:1-4, and Proverbs 29:2, defined intercessions to be, the act of saying a prayer or making a statement on behalf of another person or group of persons, by this, the Saints in the Old and New Testaments obtained good reports and were strong and did exploits.
The Spiritual Leader said, the Biblical Herod hated Christians from the Bible days till now, hence he laid hands on James the brother of John and killed him, when he observed that, the killing pleased the Jews, he arrested Peter and kept him in a well Secured Prison, but Peter was delivered when the Church prayed without ceasing. The Clerics enjoined believers in Christ Jesus to sit up and follow the admonitions given by Apostle Paul, and be involved in Supplications, Prayers, intercessions and giving of thanks, be made to all men, government, Kings and Leaders in Authorities than to be condemning them in their wrongs. He noted that the only way to change the narratives of the Nation as Christians, is when we see something, we should say something and do something, this he said, is good in the sight of God and men.
