North East Regional Leaders’ Advance 2017
The training took place in Jalingo, Taraba State from 17-18th March, 2017 and it was a glorious time of refreshing in the presence of the Lord, consisting of teachings, practical workshops, worships and prayers.
The National Theme for the year ‘Lift Up Your Eyes and Look’ was discussed to encourage and challenge us. This is coming at the heels of last year theme of ‘Long Enough on this Mount’, and wonderful African Convention titled ‘Occupy Till I Come’.
These themes are prophetic and point to great opportunities awaiting us that require courage, commitment and strong zeal to take advantage of.
In view of the social, security and economic challenges facing us in the North East Region, the Advance was a preparation and a call to come out of fear, despondency, hopelessness and to embrace the Lords’ perspective of a great harvest ready for completion urgently.
We are in the era of Ever Increasing Glory 2 Cor. 3:18 (NIV). As the End Time rushes upon us with greater intensity, the only thought in the heart of God is how to bring in the harvest of deluded sinners. FGBMFI being one of the channels for this Last Great Harvest needs to forget the past, wake up from slumber and focus on the Lords’ Agenda of the Hour. I wish to encourage us to actively participate in whatever way we can. May the Lord open our eyes to see His Agenda for the NOW.
