The General Overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries worldwide, Pastor Daniel Olukoya, has reiterated the importance of family values in securing a lasting peaceful co-existence across the world.
Olukoya said on Sunday, that one may be born in deficit, because one member of one’s ancestors had introduced failure to the generations, even the unborn, if the right corrections are not effected.
Speaking on the theme, ‘Generational Family Deliverance’, during the thanksgiving service on the dedication of the newly dedicated Prayer, Praise and Power Cathedral of the MFM International Headquarters Annex, Wuye, Abuja, the clergy charged worshippers to fight for their families.
“To put the world in order, you need to put the nations in order. To put the nations in order, you must put the families in order. Once this is not done, the family, and by extension, the world, will be stunted, sick” and affected by other similar ills of the society.
According to him, the two most important life decisions of who to serve ard who to marry are very important in a human life.
“The tragic mistake most people make is that they choose who to marry, before deciding on who to serve. Doing so means that you consider your family and your wife’s family before deciding to serve God.”
This, Olukoya noted, will be counterproductive, because you don’t know what generational liability your spouse is carrying, that you’re going to inherit.
“Any evil route in generational line can cause problems for everybody,” because to be born, one needs two parents, four grandparents, eight grandparents, 16 great grandparents, 32 great great grandparents and so on.
Any offender, whose punishment is not atoned for will surely afflict the subsequent generations, except one does the atonement through deliverance, the pastor explained.
Olukoya charged that you can either be a deficit or a benefit to one’s generation, depending on one’s choices in life.
The thanksgiving service was attended by senior pastors in the ministry, from acress the country.
The cathedral is the first of its kind in the MFM Ministries worldwide.
