Prophet S.O. Olukosi

The DCC Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Achievers Districts' Coordinating Council (DCC), Offa, Kwara State, Prophet S.O. Olukosi has said that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ has made available to us the power to become indomitable by sin, death and hades and if we are in Him we need not be afraid of death for Christ lives in us, even if we die, we have the assurance of heaven.



Prophet Olukosi stated this while ministering on Easter Sunday on the topic the topic "The Four P's in Christ Resurrection."


He said the four P's which are peace, power, potential and promise are very important words to note in the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, adding that they were evident and obviously at work during resurrection.



While quoting Mark chapter 16 verses 1-8, Prophet Olukosi said
the resurrection of Jesus Christ is our greatest comfort and greatest peace, saying that His resurrection has brought peace to the world.


He further stressed that we no longer live under the boundage of sin and death because His resurrection saved us and gave us peace.



"Christ's resurrection demonstrates to the whole world that He has power over death. He demonstrated that He has the power to release His life and the power to take it back by Himself. Everyone who had risen from death was raised by men who possessed God's power, none of them ever rose by themselves. But Christ died and resurrected by Himself and rendered useless the power of sin, death and hades. He gained victory over them and they couldn't hold Him back, and He has also made available to us the power to become indomitable by sin, death and hades, if we are in Him we need not be afraid of death for Christ lives in us, even if we die, we have the assurance of heaven."



"Jesus' resurrection exposes us to the truth of His ability of continuity. Potential is the ability to manifest/work and be active again. He did not resurrect and stay dumb, He continued working from whence He stopped, went about doing His works. John 20:16-17 reveals that after His resurrection, He went straight to heaven unto the throne of mercy to appear as the sacrificial lamb for the remission of our sins," he said.


He stated that as Christians we are not serving a dead or lazy God, but our God is active.


The Cleric said Jesus' resurrection is not only about Peace, Power and Potential, but also about a promise for us.



He explained further that "a promise was made to the disciples that, "there shall ye see Him". He never left them without fulfilling this promise as He indeed appeared to them (John 20:19). This is also a promise to us today, a day is coming when we shall see Him in His glory and power. If he could promise his disciples and fulfil the promise, everything he had said concerning us will be fulfilled."



Prophet Olukosi urged Christians to hold unto God's words because He has the power to do it adding that: "do not look at your challenges. Have faith in His words, He will surely accomplish all He had said concerning you.These four P's can never work for you outside of Christ, without accepting Him you can't enjoy Him."
