General Superintendent Message for the New Year: You crown the Year with your Goodness

CAC General Superintendent, Pastor Emmanuel O. Odejobi 

 ’Thou crowneth the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness’’. Psalms 65:11


A king that will be a real and recognized one must have a crown on his head which connotes – honour, power glory and majesty and it usually used to be the last event in the process of coronation that attracts people from all walks of life. So thus the crown of everyday is the mid-night via a new day, the crown of the week is the last day of the week via a new week, the crown of the month is the last day of the month via a new month. The crown of the year is the last month, December in which God delighted to give us His only begotten Son Jesus whom we celebrates every 25th December – the goodness that crowns the year.

The crown made Jesus Christ the King and from His kingship we have six(6) undisputable goodness that were enumerated by Isaiah 9:6 for our benefit. For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called WONDERFUL, COUNSELLOR, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE PRINCE OF PEACE.

Government upon his shoulder suggests that is able and abundantly able to carry our responsibilities in all ramifications i.e. spiritual, physical, political, matrimonial, academics etc.

Wonderful: He gives wonders for testimony in replacement of acrimony – look up unto Him for the wonder you need.

Counsellor – where there is no counselling people perish, today many homes, lives and jobs are collapsing like pack of cards due to lack of the real counsellor – JESUS CHRIST who guides us on the way to go on issues of life so as not to be misguided by fake and ravening counsellors.

The Mighty God – He owns the Power of heaven on His hands for our Total and Perfect deliverance from sin, devil and the flesh and defend us from all sort of oppression unlike Cyrus who has the power of earth though he used for the deliverance of children of Israel from Babylonian captivity, the gap is too wide.

Everlasting Father- through whom we have longlife, prosperity and eternity.

Prince of Peace: He said ‘’Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be trouble neither let it be afraid – trouble everywhere at home front, political trouble, economic, security trouble but He is our peace.


i.                    Knowing the right thing we ought to know and do and be determined to do it.

ii.                  Identify the evil you are doing and be ready to do away with it. That is two faces of REPENTANCE, the only and one KEY i.e. the Prodigal Son used it and was fully restored.

Job 22:21 Admonishes ‘Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at PEACE; thereby good shall come unto thee

...and thy paths drop fatness – Jesus is our Pathway – The only way and from who fatness drops into our in form of:

Deliverance  Mt 1:21; Lk 19:10

Reconciliation between us God from whom we are separated through his death on the cross

Destruction of the work of the devil – sin which brought about eternal death. I Jn 3:8

Abundant life: The thief cometh not , but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly(Jn10:10)

The Presence of God: when man fell, it was man minus God but when Christ came, He cross our minus sign to plus, that is, man plus God – Emmanuel. Mat 1:23

It is expected of us to BELIEVE in him, which is demonstrated to TRUST, OBEY, WALK AND WORK(T.O.W.W.) this will arouse our interest in attending Bible Study with Unified Bible Study Manual, Sunday School with Sunday School Pamphlet, quiet time with Living Water Daily Devotional Guide and all CAC journal i.e. Christ Apostolic Magazine. Thank you for reading. Happy New Year.
