HOSPITALS & PRISONS MINISTRY
(Brother-In-Charge of the Hospitals & Prisons Ministry)
The Hospitals & Prisons Ministry is one of the evangelical arms of the Bride Assembly Church and is anchored on the provisions of Matthew 25:34-40 which tells us that "Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me."
The Hospitals & Prisons Ministry has the burden to reach out to those who are in pains and chains.
The Hospitals & Prisons Ministry is a ministry set apart by the Lord Jesus in the Bible (Matthew 25:34-40). The ministry is a group of ministers with the burden of evangelism to take the message of the hour to those in Hospitals & Prisons and demonstrate the Power of God in healing the sick as instructed in Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:18. Just as the evening light, the Hospitals & Prisons Ministry are also sounding the message of the hour by Prophet William Marrion Branham, the voice of the seventh angel (Revelation 10:7, Malachi 4:5-6) to all Prisons near and far. Commissioned to reach out to all Prisons, the group, so far has a lot of testimonies from inmates that have received the message as well as some that have been set free.
The group always go alone with messages of the prophet, and sermons of the overseer (Pastor Moses Alu) to the prison on their visitation days accompanied with items for the inmates. The group take along with them items like bar soaps, toothpastes, toothbrushes, clothes, food stuffs e.t.c, which is also used as a bait to bring them out of their cells to hear the gospel.
It is specially designed to get all captives of the Lord who are held without cause out by our legal team and also giving the people the undiluted truth of the moment for we are set free by the WORD OF GOD.
Like almost all of the other ministries in The Bride Assembly Church, the prison ministry started through the leading of the Holy Spirit. Some brethren became desirous to visit inmates in the prisons believing very strongly in their hearts that as they visit 'one of the least of these my brethren' they have done it unto the Lord.
With this dire desire of going to meet with the Lord in the prisons, the prison ministry was born. True to its birth, we have never met the absence of the Lord in all the times we have been to the Prisons, though we visit five(5) prisons: Maximum Prisons Kirikiri, Medium Prisons Kirikiri, Female Prisons Kirikiri, Ikoyi Prisons, Badagry Prisons, on weekly basis. He is always there in the prisons. We think this is true for all the prisons in the world. The Lord is constantly there. We discovered that the Lord deliberately send some of His children there so He can speak to them in the quietness of that confinement.
We also discovered that there are some people that need physical separation from the world in order for them to receive the word of God, and the prisons provide an environment like that. As the Lord arranges all of these and brings some of His people to prison for His own plan and purpose, we cannot but do our own part by speaking to these priests and kings about the wonderful love of God in His Son and at the same time thank the Lord for the privilege to be His servants.
Can it be true that the Lord could send some people to prison in order to save them? The answer is with God anything is possible: 'it is better for a man to be in prison either innocently or otherwise for 20years or more and meet with the Lord Jesus Christ and go to heaven; than to be outside the prisons all his life time and wind up in hell'.
The hunger for the word of God that we find in the prisons is unprecedented. We have seen men and women, people you'll like to call hardened criminals literarily break down and cry like babies as they receive the word of God into their hearts.
The common word of testimony we usually hear from saved inmates is: 'Lord thank you for sending me to prison, there is no way I would have heard your voice outside this place'. At the end of every visit, we can clearly hear the voice of the Lord saying 'I was in the prison and you came to me', 'come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world'. Oh, the joy to visit the Lord in the Prisons! We look forward to that event. Why not join us today or contribute whatever you can for these ones.
