A clergy, Deacon Sunday Olubiyi of Living Faith Church, Goshen City in Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State says, Nigeria will enter into a new phase of God’s glory in 2023.

Olubiyi stated this during a sensitisation walk about Shiloh 2022 on Saturday in New Nyanya.

The walk took Olubiyi, other church leaders and over 500 members from Masaka U-Turn to New Nyanya Junction in Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.

“The purpose of the walk is to prepare the minds of the people for the Shiloh 2022 which is coming up between Dec. 6 and 11.

“Shiloh is the convocation of God’s people. It is gotten from Joshua 18 vs 1 where God called all His people for their inheritance to be shared; where God visited His people.

“Shiloh is a center for delivery of God’s miracles, blessings onto his people and where His voice would be clearly heard and word would be preached without adulteration.

“Nations would be born, battered and shattered destinies would be regain preciously and molded, because, we are created for God’s glory.

“The topic of this year’s Shiloh is ‘Covenant Highway’. 2023 would be a deciding year for Nigeria; Nigeria will enter into a new phase of God’s glory,” Olubiyi said.

According to him, Bishop David Oyedepo is known for speaking truth to power without sentiment, and revealing the mind of God concerning the nation.

“I am sure that in Shiloh 2022, we will know the chart to follow. This nation needs God and the glory of God will envelope Nigeria in 2023 via the shiloh programmes”

Similarly, Deacon Gift Oluwale Spencer said the liberation mandate given to Oyedepo was to liberate the world from all forms of oppressions by the enemies including issues in Nigeria.

“This kind of gathering that we are having this year again is to address the foundation of such problems that Nigeria, families and individuals are facing.

“This is because, if individuals are okay, the family is good, then the nation will be at peace. Nigerians should no longer allow mediocre to be in charge of leadership.

“It is time for the children of God to take over every sphere of leadership; from local, state and federal governments.

“That is why our father in the faith is encouraging us to go out and get our PVC, so that we can put the destiny of Nigeria in God’s hand to shape how we want the ship of Nigeria to go,” Spencer said.
