Be Prepared for Action in 2019 – Baba Aladura By Mike Oduniyi
The 2018 Annual General Conference of the Eternal Sacred Order of the Cherubim and Seraphim (ESOCS) was rounded up on Sunday, 9th December, with a thanksgiving service held at the Mount Zion National Headquarters, Surulere, Lagos, followed by Parade-in-Gala, where thousands of members filed out to paint the streets of Ebute Meta white.
Delivering his sermon at the thanksgiving service, the Baba Aladura and Prelate of the Eternal Sacred Order of the Cherubim and Seraphim worldwide, His Most Eminence (Dr.) David D.L. Bob-Manuel, charged all members of the church to be prepared to spread the true gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ in the New Year 2019.
HME Bob-Manuel said the task before members is to demonstrate, through their words, deeds and conducts, the holiness expected of them as true Christians and followers of Jesus Christ.
“We must be prepared for action in the coming year 2019. We are to be set apart in holiness, in everything we are doing, we must be steadfast in holiness,” the HME said.
According to the Prelate, laying our treasures in heaven as the Holy Book enjoined us, is not only by paying tithes, but most importantly by keeping all the commandments of God. “Live Christ-like, be it in your market place, in your office or inside the bus,” he added.
While urging members not to be lured into cultism and idolatry because of the desire for money and wealth, Baba Aladura said all members of the Church must be ready to sacrifice ourselves for others as Jesus also sacrificed Himself for mankind.
HME Bob-Manuel commended everyone for a successful general conference, which began on November 29th with the conventional service held at the cricket pitch of Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.
Earlier on Saturday, December 8th, members Advisory Board had visited the Bethesda Home for the Blind, on Agege Motor Road, Lagos. Food items, clothes and cash were donated to the less privileged.
