The National Stadium, Abuja, was “The Place” last week when the General Overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry (DCLM), Dr. William kumuyi, visited Abuja for the 2017 edition of the Divine Intervention crusade.
The annual crusade was organised by the church to bring followers from the Federal Capital Territory and environs face-to-face with the Apostle.
Prior to the day, billboards, newspapers and other advertisement platforms within and around Abuja were engaged to disseminate the news that Kumuyi was in town, even as some members engaged in individual and group outreach to invite the public of the coming of their leader.
As expected, the 60,000 capacity Abuja National Stadium was filled, while thousands of other worshippers sought for available standing space to get a glimpse of the amazing work of God in the 2017 edition of Divine Intervention.
Those who could not accept excuses began to arrive at the venue early, perhaps to secure a vantage point where they could easily connect with the man of God, spiritually and physically, in order to get their desired miracle.
Thousands of worshippers shook the stadium with cheers upon the arrival of the motorcade of their leader, which signaled the commencement of the hours of liberation for the captives, healing for the sick, deliverance for the oppressed and a whole package of blessing for those present and millions of others watching via satellite.
After several activities in the programme of the events, which included announcement, safety tips, welcome speech, choir ministration, prayers from the pastors and testimonies of acts of God from previous crusades, the man of God was ushered to the pulpit amid a collective shout from the congregation.
Kumuyi begun his teaching by first thanking God for the safety of worshippers that had congregated from different parts of Abuja and environs, enduring all the difficulties, in pursuit of God. He assured them of divine visitation that would end their days or years of tears.
He also challenged them to continually submit themselves to the service of God, even as he urged them to take charge of their destinies, by taking bold steps of faith that would force the opposition to submit to the superior power of God.
Amazingly, some people, even before the end of the few hours of praise and teaching, begun to receive miracles of healing from all manner of afflictions, in the full glare of the congregation, the lame rose to their feet and blind eyes were opened.
There were other amazing and inexplicable miracles that, according to the pastor, were the handiwork of God who never fails to prove Himself when the need arises.
He thus reminded the worshippers, particularly the guests, of the essence of new birth, insisting that the Holy Book has stamped it that “unless one is in Christ, his or her life would continue to be in crisis.”
An altar call was made at the end and thousands of people indicated interest to leave their previous sinful way of life and return to Christ.
