The World Media Conference organised by LoveWorld Incorporated (aka Christ Embassy) on Tuesday, December 28, 2022, was an eye opener for all the participants . The event which held at the Waterfalls Event Centre in Lagos, was an exhaustive discourse on the annual New Year’s Eve Service of the Ministry: it’s importance, features, and the need for everyone to participate.
The panellists: Pastor T.T Temisan, a member of the Central Executive Council (CEC), Pastor Ambrose Isesele, a CEC member too, The Director, Loveworld Church Growth International Pastor Lanre Alabi and the Chief Operating Officer, Pastor Ifeoma Chiemeka all spoke on the different advantages that the meeting has on the nations of the world as well as everyone that participates.
Pastor Lanre Alabi said the service is “a platform through which the Man of God, Pastor Chris pronounces blessings on the nations of the world”, while the COO, Pastor Ifeoma Chiemeka described the meeting as that opportunity to proclaim prosperity over the people and the nations. Reading from the Bible, the COO said the prosperity of every people and nation is based on the prophesying of the prophet of God; and the 31st Night service is one major meeting in which the President of Loveworld, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome speaks God’s Word over the people and nations of the world. This year’s edition will not be an exception: the man of God will give words that will provide direction and guidance for leaders of nations and their people, he will speak the mind of God for the year and will definitely prophesy. Therefore it is important for everyone to be a part of the meeting.
Speaking on the importance of the words of prophecy from Pastor Chris, Pastor T.T Temisan said Pastor Chris has been giving prophecies concerning nations for a while and they have all been fulfilled. His major highlights were the prophecies given by the cleric in recent times; especially since the COVID-19 saga. He recounted the many prophecies Pastor Chris gave about different nations of the world, that have been fulfilled. Some include the vaccination scam, the Russia-Ukraine war, the reversal of all COVID-19 restrictions, etc. The CEC member wrapped up his admonition by enjoining all viewers and live participants to ensure they are a part of the service come 31st December.
One of the major highlights of the 31st night service is the Future Africa Leaders Foundation Awards (FALA). The foundation celebrates youths that have been instrumental to the development of their nations and communities; youths that are carrying out different community service projects that are beneficial to the nation. The Awards ceremony, which is in its tenth year features a keynote speaker for each year.
