5. The word of the year was declared!

The Loveworld president announced the year of 2019 to be “the year of lights“. In his address to the teeming crowd, he revealed the message behind the new theme of 2019, explaining the various different elements of lights.

“There are different kinds of lights. Some are for illuminations, some are for leadership, guidance, some are for empowerment some are for signs and wonders, signs and seasons. What’s about to happen through the church of Jesus Christ, the Bible tells us as the days get closer and closer to the return of Jesus Christ, gross darkness will cover the earths, he says thick darkness will cover the earths. He’s talking about spiritual darkness – but in the midst of this, your light will so shine. The darker the darkness the more brightly you shine.”
