The long awaited seven days vigil of Christ Apostolic Church, Mount of Joy, Kosofe, Mile 12 Lagos will start today Friday 26th October 2017 and end on Friday December 8th, 2017.

In an exclusive interview with CAC NEWS, the assembly Pastor of the church, Pastor E.B. Ogedengbe, the theme of the vigil which will start by 12 midnight to 4am is "We Shall See What Will Become of His Dream" with the Bible text taking from the book of Genesis 37 vs 20.

Pastor E.B. Ogedengbe
He said that Genesis chapter 37 illustrated how the brothers of Joseph tried to make sure his dream did not come to reality.


He explained that; "Joseph related his dreams and prophetic visions showing that one day he will rule over his family with his brothers which never make them happy with him (Genesis 37:11-15). The animosity towards Joseph peaks when his brothers plot to kill him in the wilderness. Reuben, the eldest, objects to outright murder, so instead, the brothers sell Joseph as a slave and deceive their father into thinking his favorite son had been slain by wild beasts (Genesis 37:18-35),"

"Joseph is sold to a high-ranking Egyptian named Potiphar and eventually becomes the supervisor of Potiphar’s household. In Genesis 39 we read of how Joseph excelled at his duties and became one of Potiphar’s most trusted servants and was put in charge of his household. Potiphar could see that whatever Joseph did, God looked favorably on him and he prospered in all that he did,"


However, Potiphar’s wife attempts to seduce Joseph, and when her advances are rebuffed, she falsely accuses him of attempted rape. Joseph, although innocent in the matter, is cast into prison (Genesis 39:7-20). In jail, Joseph interprets the dreams of two of his fellow prisoners. Both interpretations prove to be true, and one of the men is later released from jail and restored to his position as the king’s cupbearer (40:1-23). Two years later, the king himself has some troubling dreams, and the cupbearer remembers Joseph’s gift of interpretation. The king calls for Joseph and relates his dreams. Joseph predicts seven years of bountiful harvests followed by seven years of severe famine in Egypt and advises the king to begin storing grain in preparation for the coming dearth (41:1-37). For his wisdom, Joseph is made a ruler in Egypt, second only to the king (41:38-49),"

"When the famine strikes, even Canaan is affected, and Jacob sends ten of his sons to Egypt to buy grain (Genesis 42:1-3). While there, they meet their long-lost brother, whom they do not recognize. Joseph’s brothers bow down to him, fulfilling the earlier dream. Joseph then reveals his identity to his brothers and forgives their wrongdoing. Jacob and his family move to Egypt to be with Joseph."

Pastor Ogedengbe said that God is ready to make the dream of everyone who attend the vigil  come to reality.

The vigil is expected to attract a lot of people particularly from Kosofe, Mile 12, Ikorodu and its environment. The vigil will hold on Friday of each week from today will Friday December 8, 2017 which is the grand finale.

CAC Mount of Joy Kosofe is located at 13, Olatunbosun Ajibade close, Omojuwa estate, Kosofe, Mile 12, Ikorodu Lagos state.
