On the fourth day of the 23rd Anniversary of the Embassy of God Church, we were blessed with the prophetic gift of Pastor Derek Schneider from Canada. He said that God is preparing the church for international service. Also he added that the famous Prophet, Bob Jones declared that the Embassy of God church will be the foundation for a million churches around the world.
Pastor Derek Schneider spoke on the Theme: “Only sons experience resurrection”
Rom 1: 4-6: “And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name: Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:”
From the above Bible text, we can see that through Jesus Christ we have received grace and apostleship. Why did we receive this? So that in the name of Jesus all nations shall be conquered by faith. Pastor Derek said that this word is for our church members, as well as for those who were not originally born spiritually in this church, such as him (Pastor Derek).
Sons do experience persecutions, face difficulties and problems or even crucifixion during their ministry, but they also receive resurrection and the reward in the long run.
The testimony of Pastor Derek: By the grace of God, I currently have a very great ministry. Before I met with Pastor Sunday, I was depressed and even wanted to commit suicide. I prayed to God and He told me: “Get up, go and act.” So I called Pastor Sunday and explained to him and he told me to close my eyes and ears to my failures or defeats and take action. Indeed sons are experiencing crucifixion and resurrection pastor Derek highlighted again. The first time I came to Ukraine was for the “History Makers Conference” in the Embassy of God Church and from that time my life began to change.
When I returned to Canada after the retreat, I reviewed the lessons of the retreat for a week, after which I was inspired to start a “History Makers training” in Canada.
After I started the History Makers Training in Canada I faced some problems in all areas in my life, but remember sons experience crucifixion and resurrection too. I experienced a deep depression, and even gave God 7 days to respond to me. Then on the 7th day God gave me a dream where he said: “Rise up, go and continue your work.” Then I called pastor Sunday, and he told me: “You need to close your eyes and ears to the defeat you hear and see.” Soon I met pastor Lydia from Bulgaria, together we held 18 History Makers Training within three years. People who have passed through this training have already begun different social projects, businesses, etc. One of them started conducting such trainings in prison, and we named it “Free Harvard level Training “
In addition, they also opened a public council in the city, started a school for the needy and dependent people. Pastor Natalia Potopaeva sent missionaries to Bulgaria in person of Dmitry and Ekaterina Karpov, and they opened rehabilitation centers there. However, in Bulgaria there were some challenges and difficulties, but we all considered them as part of life.
My ministry has also impacted the continent of Africa, particularly in Namibia. We have held four trainings there, and opened three public councils. Most of the graduates of this training occupy high positions in the society. I was even invited to conduct training for the office of the wife of the President of Namibia. Although the government closed all the doors for Christian churches which tried to come in, but welcomed the “History Makers School” because they said we taught the people the principles of revival which was of immense benefit to the country. In Namibia, there are now leaders who spread this great insight throughout the country.
We are currently doing a lot of work in Canada and in America also. We have TV programs based on my book “Beyond the Four Walls”. This program became popular not only in America; but it was also broadcasted in many places including Russia. So far we have affected 250 thousand people. Now God has opened the door for us in Pakistan and Finland.
God works, dear brothers and sisters! The whole world is waiting for us! Be blessed!
