"The Mandate" was received from the LORD in an 18-hour vision. Our task is to liberate the entire world from all oppressions of the enemy both spirtual and physical through the teachings and preaching of the word of FAITH, schooling them to exploits in life and releasing men and women to thier full potentials to benefit humanity
This was the Divine mandate received from the LORD:
"Now the hour has come to liberate the world from all oppressions of the devil through the preaching of the word of faith, and I am sending you to undertake this task."
Today, testimonies of liberation through our messages, books, tapes, magazines and other periodicals are most humbling. The word of faith is working like fire for the liberation of mankind across the nations.
Twelve Pillars of the Commision
God commissioned the presiding Bishop of this commission with a Word of Faith ministry to our generation. Remember Paul said,
"...if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?" (1 Cor 14:8)
As a Commission, we have experienced amazing testimonies ever since this commission was handed down - that is over forty years now! The Holy Ghost further inspired the servant of God, Dr. David Oyedepo, to classify the Word of Faith He has committed into his hands into the specific areas of emphasis, in direct response to Isaiah 40:6,
"The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry?..."
He has named these 12 areas of emphasis as the 12 Pillars of our Commission. We have crossed Jordan into power, bearing the ark of liberation. Here are the 12 stones, after the order of Joshua 4:1-8, 20-24. Having stood firm upon these twelve stones! And they have resulted in breakthroughs - both for the ministry and all that are partakers with us, of the same grace.
