All You Need To Know About Mgbidi 2019 Crusade
WHAT IS MGBIDI?
“MGBIDI”, literally speaking, is the Igbo word for wall. By meaning “wall”, the word “Mgbidi” could also be extended to mean somewhere on a very high altitude; probably on the top of a hill or mountain or what have you. Invariably, it can be referred to as “Mountain Top”.
However, it happens to be the name of the town where Oru West, a local government area of Imo State in southeastern. It is located at latitude 5.37° N and longitude 6.57° E. It was the headquarters of the Oru Local Government Area before its division into two local government areas, Oru West and Oru East, in 1996 under the presidency of Sani Abacha. Mgbidi is in the oil rich Njaba River sub-basin alongside Oguta, Imo State.
HOW COME MGBIDI CRUSADE?
Mgbidi is the annual spiritual exercise by The Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries. The annual event is a fulfillment of God’s word in Micah 4: 1; “But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.”
Held at the beginning of the year, the event afforded worshippers the opportunity to worship, pray to, and receive from God as the year begins.
Little wonder that the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor Lazarus Muoka had said that, “Almost the whole world are converging at Mgbidi and we are going to experience what we have not been experiencing before because God will be coming down in His power mightier than ever before and He is going to fulfill His prophecies concerning that place because He said, in the last days the mountain of the Lord shall be established on top of the mountains and all nations shall flow into it. That mountain is this ministry and the Mgbidi crusade venue is the physical mountain where we gather every year and when we come there, all problems are taken away and that makes it unique.“
When the General Overseer of the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries, Pastor Lazarus Muoka, made the above statement some time ago, many thought it was a mission impossible. Today, however, God has honoured that word.
There was no doubt therefore that the town often see an incredible overflow of human and vehicular stream of traffic. The large expanse of land covering over five hundred hectares were filled by worshipers who where determined and committed to having fellowship with God.
At the 2018 edition of Mgbidi crusade, the number of countries that graced the event was gathered to be above 100. Since its inception, the crusade has been recording a giant increase in every successive edition. Separate reports from Vanguard and The Sun Newspapers put the number of worshipers who were at the 2018 edition of the crusade at 3.5 million.
MIRACLES AT MGBIDI CRUSADE
Since inception, miracles, signs and wonders are common from Day One to the end of the program with countless testimonies, be it at the live venue or at remote locations across the globe via chosen TV and even on church social media handles. It’s been such that there has always not been enough time to share the testimonies of miracles, as the custom of the commission gives every testifier few minutes to share what God has done for them.
The Chose Online Revivalists department tries as much as possible to capture some of the testimonies, but most are unaccounted for as the programme is attended by millions of people across the globe both online and offline.
The sick, including the lame, the blind, the paralysed, the deaf and dumb received healing. No doubt, miracles and deliverances have been in abundance. There have been healings from illnesses such as HIV, cancer, glaucoma, diabetes, asthma, spinal cord injury, pneumonia, deliverance from; spiritual attacks, death, barrenness freedom from; poverty, addictions, delay in marriage etc. The weak have been made strong, the oppressed have been set free, salvation have been granted to many and there have been great Holy Ghost impartation by divine prayers and words from the General Overseer.
There have been several out of the ordinary testimonies of what God has been doing in the lives of the people in Mgbidi crusade and that would take a universe of pages to exhaust. However, a bit would suffice.
One was shared by a young woman, Mrs. Osamudiame Omoregbe, 36, who came from Benin, Edo State. She had been a prostitute for about 15 years, but when she heard God’s word, she gave her life to Christ and at the crusade, she shared God’s goodness and how God blessed her with a husband. This, to her, is the reward of obeying Him.
Narrating how she became a prostitute, Mrs. Omoregbe, who would soon be a mother, said her schoolmate introduced her into the business. Said she: “It was all due to lack of care, food and money. Even while I was in the secondary school, my father refused to pay our school fees. Instead, he told us to go and get married. That was why I went into prostitution. In the process, I started smoking, drinking, going to nightclubs and committing abortion.
“I have never been to a church before in my life. But somehow, a friend took me to the Lord’s Chosen Church in 2012, where we attended the new comers class. That particular Wednesday, when I heard our General Overseer, Pastor Lazarus Muoka preached, I gave my life to Christ. Little did I know that the Lord is so good.
“I am so happy today because most of my friends that were in the same profession with me then are dead, while the others have different stories to tell. I discovered this when I went to the hotel in Benin to preach repentance to them. My family was mocking me, but I thank God that they are now in Chosen and one of them attended this programme. God of Chosen delivered me and thereafter gave me a husband in 2014.”
Another was shared by Mr. Ethelbert Agworamba and his wife, Deborah. They had lived together without a child for 15 years, and according to them, the trauma was so much that the woman was asked to sleep with another man in order to produce a child for her husband. But she refused. It was at the crusade that they came with a miracle child named Nmachukwu (God’s goodness) and their testimony moved the crowd to tears.
Two persons who were tested positive to the dreaded Acquired Deficiency Syndrome, HIV/AIDs, Mr. Sunday Igwebuike and Mrs. Ikwunze Nma were among those who gave testimony before thousands of worshipers that they have been healed of the deadly diseases after prayer sessions at the crusade.
With tears rolling down his cheeks, Igwebuike said he had lived with the deadly virus for almost a decade but he was shocked when his doctor gave him a clean bill of sound health that he is now negative: “it was a huge shock for me when the doctor gave me a report indicating that I’m now negative. I remembered that it was during the prayers session supervised by the General Overseer that I felt that something evil left me. The pastor specifically rebuked the HIV/AIDs disease and asked any of us who was positive to go for check up again. This is the Lord’s doing and I give glory to him.” He said.
Flaunting her doctor’s latest report that confirmed that she is no longer HiV/AIDs positive, Ikwunze said: “This is beyond human understanding. And it is only God that can do this. I’m no longer positive of the killer disease after prayers by the G.O. Glory to the name of God.”
