“It is the year of open doors when He opens, no man can shut… and when He shuts, no man can open!”
On the first Sunday of 2013, Senior Pastor Joseph Prince proclaimed that 2013 would be the year of the key of David, and Jesus would open doors of blessings and shut doors of harm for His people.
Fast forward 12 months later, on Sunday, 29 December 2013, our congregation gathered at our various service venues to give thanks and remember God’s faithfulness in bringing His Word to pass.
The service unfolded with a melodious piano recital. As the pianist hit the last note, all eyes turned to the screen where the key of David began to unlock all the doors that were tightly shut. This significant move brought fond reminders that Jesus is working behind the scenes and opening doors of God’s untold blessings for His people.
During Holy Communion, Pastor Lawrence Lim led the congregation in giving thanks to God and recounted the many blessings the church had experienced in the year. Truly, there had been much to give thanks for. In the second half of 2013, Pastor Prince’s Facebook “likes” hit more than 1.6 million and his new book, The Power Of Right Believing, was ranked second on the New York Times Bestseller list!
In his thanksgiving message, Pastor Prince exhorted the people in taking their rightful place as the redeemed ones of the Lord. The service ended at an all-time high as Pastor Prince led the congregation in bringing their three prayer requests to the Lord.
