SINCE WE STARTED THE HOLY GHOST SERVICE IN 1986 TILL NOW, MIRACLES ARE STILL HAPPENING
THE SEASON (OF WONDERS) IS STILL CONTINUING
THIS WILL BE YOUR SEASON OF WONDERS!
YOUR SEASON OF WONDERS WILL LAST FOREVER!
GOD IS THE ONE WHO DOES WONDERS AND DECIDES HOW LONG A PARTICULAR SEASON WILL LAST
– Pastor E. A. Adeboye on “SEASONS OF WONDERS” RCCG FEBRUARY 2023 THANKSGIVING SERVICE 5th February, 2023
Let someone shout halleluyah!
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 as we want to discuss briefly on the SEASONS OF WONDERS. To everything there is a season.
– My prayer is that your season of joy will begin today.
What do we mean by wonders? Someone had defined a wonder as that which causes you to wonder.
In other words, a miracle so great that it is almost unbelievable. A miracle that causes you to open your mouth involuntarily.
– May you experience that today!
For example in Acts 3:1-11. What is a season? It is simply a time when certain things normally happens. For example when we talk of rainy season in this part of the world. We are talking about a time when rain normally falls.
If somebody gets up and says he is a prophet, in June, and he says, “Thus says the Lord, it shall rain tomorrow.” You will just laugh at him; June is the rainy season; you don’t need to prophesy to us. Like in Deuteronomy 28:12. So when we talk of season of wonders we are talking of a period of time when wonders happen; when what we should expect will be wonders.
For example in Acts 2:1-12. The apostles spoke in strange tongues and yet everybody understood them. That was a wonder. Almost immediately it was followed by Acts 3:1-11 when all of a sudden they saw a man who was born lame walking, leaping, praising God. Almost immediately it was followed by Acts 5:1-16. It was followed almost immediately by Acts 8:5-8. It was followed by several cases when disciples were put in prison and overnight the prison doors will open on its own like in Acts 12:5-11; Acts 16:25-end.
You couldn’t put these people in prison. You put them on prison, before you go there the following morning they’re gone. Wonders after wonders. It was a season of wonders.
– I am believing God at least for the Redeemed Christian Church of God to start with, this will be our season of wonders!
The big question is actually: How long does a season last? I know a country not too far away from Africa when they told me that if it rains once a year and the rain lasts up to 15 minutes, they rejoice. Once a year; 15 minutes rain – and they will say God has been good to us this year. That means their own rainy season lasts 15 minutes. That day I said, “Thank God I am in Nigeria.”
Our rainy season can last for months.
How long does a season last? It depends entirely on God because according to Daniel 2:20-21, he is the controller of times and seasons. Exodus 15:11. He is the one who does wonders and he can decide how long a particular season is going to last. 2 Peter 3:8. He can allow wonders to last for a thousand years and regard it as one day.
– I am praying for you that your wonders will last forever
For example: as young as I am, I have seen revivals. Mighty revivals, breaking all over the world. I remember a time when at a particular time of the year, all of us who are pastors will be rushing to a particular country in the world because a man is going to be having a convention that will last for one week.
We will come from all over the world. The first time I attended, about 17,000 people present. To me whose congregation then was less than 1,000, I’ve never seen such a crowd. But it lasted for a season.
Now if they hold that same meeting, it will be a miracle if they get 3,000 people. The season has passed. But then by the special grace of God (because God has a very special love for us) we started the Holy Ghost Service in 1986 and up till now, miracles are still happening. The season is still continuing.
– I pray for someone here today, your season of wonders will last forever.
