Bishop James Olalekan Oyelade, the founder, Presiding Bishop and Chairman Board of Trustee of The Christian Church international has described Easter as the greatest event that happened under the sun.
He made this description in his Easter message during the 2019 Easter cantata service held at the headquarters of the church in Ibadan.
The Man of God said those who believes in Jesus will have the courage to face death and as well have deliverance from the sting of death.
“Death is a phenomenon and not a substance, a personality is behind it, death is not death without that personality which is Satan; those who fear death automatically becomes its victim” he added.
“Believing in Jesus will make you bold that is; you will not fear death and this in turn will make death run away from you” He continued.
Bishop Oyelade said the joy of every believer should be the fact that Jesus called himself the resurrection and the life and He proved it by raising the dead and resurrecting – this make up the reason for Easter celebration.
He however encouraged believers to put on the spirit of courage so that they would not be a prey to untimely death.
Easter is not a season to morn, it is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ who is the only religious leader that died and rose again” He added.
