THE JOURNEY SO FAR: EBENEZER

THE PASTORS' COUNCIL CHERUBIM AND SERAPHIM MOVEMENT CHURCH WORLDWIDE

PREAMBLE

"make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands, serve the lord with gladness come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord He is God, it is He that made us, and not we ourselves; and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praises; be thankful into him and bless his name. For the Lord is good: his mercy is everlasting and his truth endure to all generations Psalm 100: 1-5

It is with gladness, joy and a hearth full of thanksgiving to give all glory, adoration and honor to the King of Kings; Lord of Lords, the Alpha and Omega, he who was and his to come, may his name be glorified in the Name of Jesus Christ Hallelujah. The C&S Pastoral Council came not as an accident or by mere thinking of an individual in fact, the emergency of the Council was by divine inspiration, divine direction and divine approval, Amen to the Lord. Just like the sheep of Christ in the gospel of Luke Chapter 12:32.

           "Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear,

             little flock, for its your Father's good pleasure to give

             you the kingdom!

This was the anchor scripture that laid the foundation upon which the CSMC Pastoral Council was established 10 years ago (2006) at the International Convention Retreat of the great Church hosted by Ibadan District on the Sunday 5th November, 2006 it was a great day.
