When God speaks, it is done. When he says Glory Ahead, it is settled. That is the glory around the corner for you. Congratulation! It is with great joy that I welcome you to this Congress. I assure you in the name of the one who is called the King of Glory and Source of all that is truly glorious that your life will never be the same after this Congress. When God showed little of His glory to Moses, his face shone so much that the people were afraid to come near him. He had to wear a veil to cover his face (Exod 34:29-35). Moses’ life was never the same again.
When also the cloud descended, the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. When the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, the children went onward in all their journey (Exod 40:34-36). By the reason of this Congress, you shall move forward in Jesus’ name.
By now,I am sure, you already know the meaning of glory. it is the opposite of shame.Shame belongs to the Devil. Christ in us is the hope of glory.He is glory personified.He is the source and giver of glory. He is the one we have come to celebrate as we did at all the past Congress. As you celebrate the King of Glory, you can be sure of a glorious experience all through this season and the new year.
I encourage you to make these six days the best you have ever spent. Attend the morning, afternoon, evening programmes – they are prayerfully and specially put together for you. Remain in the attitude of worship. Be prayerful. Be expectant. You are here for a special encounter with God. Do not allow anyone or anything to distract you. Hook unto the King of Glory – He is the reason why you are here. Once again, welcome to the presence of the Almighty God for a next six days.
Welcome to the Congress of Glory Ahead. God bless you!
