Pastor Bushiri had introduced the executive leader of NEC youth league and she greeted the congregation of how blessed they are, as a black community. Their identity in Christ has to be defended and preserved in the future, and she requested for prayers from the pastors of all the church communities in Africa. Luke: 1:17, was the focus of Major 1’s sermon for the Big Sunday service. He talked about the spirit of Elijah, not only the spirit but also the power of Elijah. Malachi: 4:5 explains how before the coming of Jesus, Elijah is going to come, and another Elijah will come before the rapture. Elijah is seen as a significant man amongst all. The most powerful lines in Bushiri’s sermon was “How Elijah was interpreted as the spirit of intercession and prayer”!! Before something great happens, God promised that he would send the spirit of intercession and prayer.
Prayer can make impossible things possible. Elijah was not a Jew, he was a gentile. But he was chosen for intercession for the Jews. Elijah spirit should not be lacking in any individual or family. The Lord gave dominion over the earth to the man. But the man gave over the dominion to the evil. The significance of prayer and intercession was taught to the congregation by Prophet Bushiri. Prophet also said that what you expect from the prophetic church is different from the normal church. The Bible talks about the major prophets and minor prophets. Major 1 also gave a prayer book for the whole week.
Prophet talked about how we have to intercede with God, while a strong foundation of prayer life is built in every individual life. Prayers were chanted for the spirit of Elijah to transform Disobedience to obedience. Any problem that is not solved and is not obeying to one’s spirit is prayed to be shredded down. The major 1 prayed for the deliverance in the families, companies. Supernatural death cancellations, financial breakthroughs were the witness during the due course of the Big Sunday service. There was a testimony where Tuberculosis was healed, and a whose kid who was deaf and dumb was healed too.
The anointed oil “The Lion of Judah” was blessed and Major 1 prophesied to the families and He asked the congregation to steadily pray, and preached how kneeling prayer as the most powerful weapon that will change everyone’s life. And Prophet Bushiri concluded with a prayer for the spirit of Elijah to dwell in families and everywhere.
