In just a matter of hours, it will be “kick-off” time for the Night of Bliss with the man of God Pastor Chris Oyakhilome at the Soccer City; as at the time of writing, the venue is almost jammed. I am not exaggerating!! This reminds me of what the man of God Pastor Chris Oyakhilome always says: the stadia of this world were not built for soccer or any other sporting event, they were built for preaching the gospel. In his home country Nigeria, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has used the biggest spaces available with same result – maximum capacity crowds to the point where people need to be turned back.
Here in South Africa, he has done it again and again…..sceptics said he couldn’t do it this time, not the soccer city they said, even the crowd of football fans from all over the world did not fill out the soccer city during the last world cup. Well, if you could come with me to the stadium now, the facts speak for themselves – it is almost packed out. Thank God the organizers anticipated this and made elaborate preparations for those who will not get into the venue – the sheer scale of their preparations lets you know the reach of this event.
As posted on the Official Website for the program:
1. All those who collected tickets must be at the stadium between 8am and 12noon.
2. Night of Bliss South Africa will be aired LIVE in the following national Television Stations
Kenya [Citizen TV]
Burundi [RTNB Radio and National Roadcaster]
Swaziland [Swazi TV]
Malawi [MBC TV]
Zimbabwe [ZBC TV]
Lesotho [Lesotho TV]
South Africa [Soweto TV] – please note that Soweto TV is on DSTV.
It will be LIVE on our station LoveworldSat; in this way most of our invitees can participate through the night.
Apart from this, it will be LIVE on the internet and at 91 Viewing Centers spread over 9 countries in Southern Africa; this does not include the numerous viewing centers in Nigeria and other parts of Africa and indeed all over the world wherever members of this great ministry are found. When addressing the brethren at the March LIVE broadcast of the monthly communion service tried to discourage them from travelling into South Africa because of the limited space available at the program venue – he encouraged them to hook up to the LIVE broadcast of the event instead.
Needless to say, it will be a harvest of miracles, the excitement and the expectation in the arena is palpable; you can tell that the many wheelchairs all over the arena will be left empty by morning, everyone in here knows that the very air in this place will become electrified with God’s presence once the program begins. And when the man of God Pastor Chris Oyakhilome mounts that stage…..hey! anything is possible. That’s why they came, that’s why they have been sitting and waiting patiently from as early as 7.00am – they know that Night of Bliss South Africa will be a celebration of miracles.
I have to go now…..but I will be back after the event to share my thoughts, do hit the comment below and share your expectations and this night, follow me on Yookos for updates.
