Of a truth, God never sleeps or slumbers; His arm is not too short to rescue His beloved.
Of the millions of families that worshipped at Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry, a.k.a Mercy City, Warri, Delta state, Nigeria, on the 29th of November, 2020, none could have foreseen that God would avert a major disaster that would forever have tainted the joy and reputation of their beloved church.
What would have been a dark day in the history of the church was turned around for good.
During service hours, three young men identified as ThankGod Joseph, Israel Unyime, and —— were seen loitering in a suspicious manner, in the church premises and were detained by staff of the church security team for questioning.
It was discovered that these cohorts, originally four in number, had been armed with demonic charms, and sent on a specific mission to abduct children from the Mercy City premises, for rituals.
The four men, one of whom is still at large, were offered 200,000 naira each, to successfully carry out this demonic mission. They were well on their way to achieving their aim; armed with diabolical materials that would cause any child they engaged in conversation to promptly become obedient to them and do their bidding. It was upon entering the church premises that they realized that a greater power existed.
_ confesses that confusion struck the team upon their entrance into the church premises. He immediately decided that he wanted no hand in child abduction and the team started to get into a frenzy as they lost their sense of reasoning.
It was indeed a miracle that this group of bandits was discovered, considering the high level of activity that one would typically see in the Mercy City premises.
Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain.
