Topic: GO AND BE FRUITFUL (John 15:16; 1 Pet. 2: 9-10)
Your salvation is not what you purchase. There’s nothing in this world. This world ought not to exist, that is why we need to preach the gospel. The good shepherd has a reward for us. The G.O. encouraged the youths not to be proud and not to criticize, he stressed that once they attain a height, they will discover that it is not as easy as it is. We are all workers together in God’s vineyard, said the G.O. It is not good for one to get to heaven and not to recover any crown. When you are born again, go and fetch others, bring them to the church.
• You are a peculiar person, if you have Christ in you.
• To every blessing, there’s a corresponding responsibility.
• If you are not envied, there’s no change in your life. Isaac was envied because he prospered. If you don’t want to be envied, don’t ask for prosperity.
The General Overseer prayed for different categories of people. The choir sang the hallelujah chorus. The General Overseer declared Convention 2023 closed and said the benediction. He announced that the date for the next convention if the Lord tarries is Monday, August 5 to Sunday, August 11, 2024.
And the Rehoboth Convention was a huge success.
