During Church Service on the 24th of July, 2022. The International Director of GEWC (Pastor Isaac Olori) sermon was life transforming.
Theme: “Divine Appointment”. Prayer today is that some will locate divine appointment that comes with provision. God has a provision for every situation. God will rekindle homes from hopeless situation. God has the capacity to bring beauty out of ashes. ashes are symbols of pain, sorrow and the only way we can comeback to God is from ashes to dust. In Genesis 2:7 (KJV), God formed man from dust. Your pain shall be a point of contact for joy. You shall get breakthrough from hard situation. God is about to bring an appointment in our lives. In Luke 4:18 (KJV), Appointment is the mission of God. When you are focused, you will attain your appointed time and you will attain position, materially, physically and spiritually. God will replace the ashes of someone to beauty. There is a story to change.
In Esther 4:1, 5:14, 6:1 (KJV), There is no sickness that can stand the provision of God. Just believe and see God do it. How God will do it, is not your business, just believe.
Let it be clear that, there is no situation God cannot take care of. There is an appointment and that appointment is a divine appointment that will change situation of ashes for good. The Oak Tree has a lot of characteristics; the oak tree can live for 1000 years, the tree is ever-green and that means, it can survive from season to season. It’s not regulated by season. What God want to do in your life, is not just to take away your pains, but to fortify you. Psalm 45:7 (KJV).
Righteousness is the right handling with God. Righteousness connects you with God Psalm 3:1 (KJV). The secret of prosperity is righteousness. Many are disconnected and weakened by sin. 1 John 3:9 (KJV). The first appointment today is to repent from the sin of garment of ashes.
End of sermon. The Congregation at the Temple of GEWC were delighted and filled with the spirit of God, truly a glorious service.

Answer: The Anniversary is symbolic, because 50 years is a covenant year, it is known as a year of jubilee and for a Ministry that have existed and still existing, promoting her core value and vision for 50 years, is indeed a time of celebration and not just that it is the command of the lord to celebrate jubilee, but it is worth-while that a ministry of 50years should be celebrated. The Church is excited and ready for our 50th year Anniversary celebration.
Question: What should we expect during the Anniversary?
Answer: Jubilee itself is a season of blessing, even from the scripture, is a season of release and blessing. Hence, is a season of manifold blessing, and for us as a Ministry, we are set to go into a new level. And for the society and those who will be part of us, they are by default, going to be covenant partaker of jubilee, we going to see an expression of the grace of God upon this vison and upon the work on the land, we are going to see a dimension of activities; Series of crusades, which will include the Mega Crusade in the city of Port Harcourt, that will shake the city and its environs. We will have a musical concert with several Artistes, one of the best in the world and have season teachers of the word of God, that will be engaging the word of God and everyone of us will find our place in purpose in God and the opening and closing ceremony of this Anniversary will be monumental and historic. The Foundation of our founding Father (The Apostle Geoffrey Numbere Foundation), there will be a fund drive and fund-raising to promote his ideals and values while he was alive. These are the activities that will culminate in this Anniversary and it will be simultaneously held all over the world, where Greater Evangelism is situated and families, individuals and friends are geared to making this epoch-making ceremony.
Question: Looking at the Crusade, what does it intend to achieve?
Answer: It’s two dimensions, this Ministry (Greater Evangelism) is a ministry that is set up to rescue the lost. The crusade itself, is to bring the word of salvation unto the lives of men, to rescue men, rescue the land and secondly, to re-launch the Ministry of Greater Evangelism. So, these are the two cardinal objectives of this crusade.
