The programe was a great success as a crowd of worshipers surged into the Prayer City from about 12 noon. After series of warfare prayers to pave the way, Dr. Daniel Olukoya mounted the pulpit to preach on the mystery of the trinity of captivity titled: “Lead Your Captivity Captive”.
With a resounding and thunderous declaration, he led us to say three hot times, “NO MORE EMBARGO FOR MY LIFE IN THE NAME OF JESUS!!!”. He also declared that there are seven solutions to any captivity. The first solution is: DELIVERANCE; the second solution is: DELIVERANCE; the third solution is: DELIVERANCE; the fourth solution is: DELIVERANCE; the 5th solution is: DELIVERANCE; the 6th and 7th solutions are DELIVERANCE, DELIVERANCE!
What an emphatic way to disgrace captivity with the only provision by God. He read from the Book of Judges 5:12 “Awake, awake, Deborah: awake, awake, utter a song: arise Barak, and lead thy captivity captive, thou son of Abinoam.”
He also taught about the ‘trinity’ of captivity. The first being INHERITED or ANCESTRAL BONDAGE, which is popularly known as evil powers of your father’s house or foundational powers. A person’s progresss could be hidden by these powers in the waters, trees, or even the ground.
The story was told of how 3 daughters aged between 24-42 years old were uncontrollably bed wetting as a result of the curse placed by an evil priestess on the mother of the three children. It took hot prayers of deliverance to dismantle and undo the evil works of those foundational powers responsible for that family reproach.
The second ‘trinity’ of captivity was revealed by Dr. Olukoya as IDOLATRY. He showed us from Exodus 20:2-6 how idolatry was a chain that ties a person to the past, and how God deals generational punishment for idolatry and how idolatry was traced as the greatest problem of the black man. He described it as a ‘marriage with demons’ and ‘contending with a Jealous God’.
In the 3rd ‘trinity’ called “BONDAGE of the place of birth“, Dr. Daniel Olukoya told the story of a testimony of the first church which he pastored in1985, where a woman in the captivity of a herbalist was delivered of her second twin-child (Kehinde), after the herbalist lost control in his wicked manipulations to deal with the woman.
A good Samaritan brought the woman in labour and at the point of death, because the first twin-child (Taiye), was already born in the herbalist shrine but the herbalist lost control afterwards and threw the woman out, to go and die elswhere. Glory be to God, the power of the Holy Ghost that cannot be insulted saved the second child and was delivered by hot prayers in the midsts of prayer warriors in the church.
The conclusion of the matter was that today, 23 years later, Taiye is in jail somewhere, while Kehinde is a pastor, all because of the mystery of the 3rd trinity of ‘bondage of the place of birth’. He said the location of their birth determined their respective destinies.
Now take the hot Prayer Points he led us to pray, with all vigor and strength you can gather:
1. Every yoke of backwardness assigned against my destiny BREAK! in the name of Jesus.
2. GREAT PHYSICIAN! JESUS CHRIST!! APPLY your medication upon my life! in the name of Jesus.
3. O God arise, and give me a turn-around miracle, in the name of Jesus.
4. O God arise, and lead my captivity captive in the name of Jesus.
5. O God arise, and do something in my life that would make men to celebrate me, in the name of Jesus.
6. O God arise, and connect me to my helpers, in the name of Jesus.
