… Urge prayers, good life
NEW years come with expectations. Some people engage in resolutions which deal with personal issues to guard them throughout the year. Prophecies come, some shocking and unbelievable, others regarded as smart exhibition of common knowledge, which people knew would happen or not.
Many Nigerian Christians believe that prophecies are divine messages given to prophets to convey to people for them to know the sequence of events and it will trend. Some Nigerians claimed that the 2018 prophecies never materialised.
Every year differs from the preceding year and as such, the degree of prophetic occurrences. This year has been much talked about even in the political arena decades ago as the year for housing for all, affordable healthcare, among and other attainable economic goals that are supposed to launch the country into global economic power. To this, notable men of God have made predictions concerning what the new year holds.
The General Overseer, Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, Pastor Daniel Olukoya has declared that God demands total obedience from man. According to him, “2020 is a year where disobedience to God would yield terrible result that no deliverance can reverse.”
He foresaw the plans of the enemy (devil) to fill the world with the dog spirit (strange sexual perversion) which will surpass that of the previous years. He said that many would be lured into strange marriages due to lack of patience and the year would be messy and confusing.
The cleric spoke about the importance of prayer to avert national restlessness. “Hot prayers are required in 2020. It is a year where God’s people will not only take back what the enemy has stolen from them but would occupy new territories; a year where many leaders would be shifted away.
“The year would yield fruits to many; all things planted and watered in the past years by many would now begin to produce fruits. Many who have endured season of darkness and delay would sing their song and dance their dance.”
According to Apostle Suleiman Johnson of Omega Fire Ministries, “this year 2020 shall be a year of greater glory and greater works for Nigerians. You will become an institution. Your sorrows shall be turned to joy. You shall enjoy peace on every side and helpers will come to you from everywhere. Anyone trying to divert your helpers, judgment will come to them on the spot.”
The General Overseer, Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo declared that God has ordained to get his children on the list of limit breaking saints and urged Christians to exercise their faith on the ability of God whose hand can make anything happen at anytime, to walk into the reality of the limitless grace in all areas of their lives.

The battle is not yours; it will be victory after victory.
“On the international scene including Nigeria, “unless you pray very hard, it is going to behave like a child that is having a convulsion. Earth quake and volcanoes that have been dormant for years will erupt; the reason is due to sin. Sin is becoming more rampant. Earthquakes in many places that has never happened before and that is one of the reasons that you should pray for Nigeria.
“Except God’s children will pray so that His healing hands can be upon the nations of the world. The reason is that sin is becoming far, far more rampant than before. Things that in the past will not even be mentioned are now being celebrated and God is angry. If we should pray and evangelise rapidly, God will help. He concluded that God will particularly answer the prayers of His children.
