Shiloh, the annual convocation of the winners’ family worldwide is a prophetic annual appointment with God ordained for both the dominion of the church and the individual members of the Winners’ family.
This holy convocation was flagged off by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost from the book of Joshua 18:1 which states: This holy convocation was flagged off by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost from the book of Joshua 18:1 which states: “And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together af Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was subdued before them.”
It is also written: It is also written: “And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh; for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD”– 1 Sam. 3:21.
From the above scriptures, it is clear that Shiloh is a platform for encounter with the Word, which empowers us to possess our possessions – Josh. 18:3 / 1 Sam. 1:13-19
However, apart from encounters with the word and answers to prayers, there are two other avenues we encounter God at Shiloh, namely: However, apart from encounters with the word and answers to prayers, there are two other avenues we encounter God at Shiloh, namely: the altar of sacrifice and and the altar of vows.
First, the Altar of Sacrifice
“And the man Elkanah, and all his house, went up to offer unto the Lord “And the man Elkanah, and all his house, went up to offer unto the Lord the yearly sacrifice, and his vow.”- 1 Sam. 1:21
However, we discover that:
A sacrifice, all through scriptures is a ‘onetime’ affair as observed in the testimonies of Abraham, David and Solomon, among others. For example: God swore generational blessings on Abraham through the altar of Sacrifice – Gen. 22:1-18
God also stopped the plague upon Israel through the sacrifice of David – 2Sam. 24:18-25
Solomon encountered a supernatural turnaround that gave him an enviable place in destiny through the altar of sacrifice – 1 Kgs. 3:3-13
In the light of the above at Shiloh 2015; everyone shall be required to come along with his/her sacrifice for their desired turnaround – Ps. 126:l-6.
We must also note that a sacrifice is not determined by its volume, but rather by the cost it places on the individual. King David Said: “…. Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer bums offerings unto the lord my God of that which doth cost me nothing….” – 2 Sam. 24:24-25
Secondly, the Altar of Vows
On the other hand, we discover that vows also carry powerful turnaround virtues. As it is written: On the other hand, we discover that vows also carry powerful turnaround virtues. As it is written: “Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant (vow) with me by sacrifice; and the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself ” – Ps. 50:5-6
A vow is a spiritual platform for provoking divine intervention in our affairs.
As I have often said, testimonies are the best interpretations of the truth of scriptures, as Jesus said: As I have often said, testimonies are the best interpretations of the truth of scriptures, as Jesus said: “if I do not the works of my Father, believe me not”– Jn. 10:37
In addition, every testimony is a pointer to our heritage in Christ, as it is written: In addition, every testimony is a pointer to our heritage in Christ, as it is written: “Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage forever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart” – Ps. 119:111.
The Psalmist further said, “The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I Shall live.“ – Ps. 119: 144.
The following selected turnaround testimonies from the altar of sacrifice and vows at Shiloh can be replicated in the life of everyone that desired same:
TESTIMONIES FROM THE ALTAR OF SACRIFICE AT SHILOH
Financial Turnaround Via Shiloh Sacrifice!
“I joined this Commission in 2006 and attended Shiloh that same year. It was during Shiloh that I heard about Shiloh Sacrifice for the first time. I was formerly paid only twenty thousand naira (N20,000) in my workplace.
I had only ten thousand naira (N10,000) in my account at the time I heard about the Shiloh sacrifice. However, I decided to release it to God. It was small, but in my heart, it was very big. The next year, I received a phone call inviting me to come and start another work. In this new job, I was paid one hundred thousand naira (N100,000).
The next Shiloh, I decided to sacrifice my entire salary, which was, one hundred thousand naira (N100,000). After that, the director of the company called me and told me that I had been moved to another company. In that new company, I was paid three hundred thousand naira (N300,000). Along the line, I miraculously got married; God blessed us even more. I told my wife I wanted to sacrifice my entire salary to God and she agreed. So, I sacrificed the three hundred thousand naira (N300,000).
When we had our reclamation project in my church at lju, in Delta state, I closed my personal business account, and sacrificed all the money to God. In July 2012, by the grace of God, I was able to sign a cheque of three hundred thousand naira (N300, 000) for my tithe. I give all the glory to God!” — Louis, U.S.
HIV Positive Destroyed via Shiloh Sacrifice!
“In 2009, I was sick and the doctor told me I was HIV positive. Thereafter, I was directed to a place where I would be given medications. I tore the note out of anger and came for Shiloh last year. While the Bishop was ministering on the spirit of fear, he said, ‘One effective tool in the hands of the devil is the spirit of fear. From today, anything that you have lost as a result of feds, will be recovered.’ I shouted ‘Amen!” When the Bishop spoke about Shiloh sacrifice, he instructed us to redeem it within seven days. However, the Holy Spirit said I should redeem mine in Canaanland. When the Bishop was ministering, he also said we should tie the sacrifice to what we believed God for. I said, ‘Lord I want the perfection of my total health.’
Thereafter, I went for another test and to the glory of God, the result showed that I am HIV negative!” — Samuel Ngozi
50 Years Multiplication Via Shiloh Sacrifice!
“I have been in this Commission for a while and the last command I struggled to understand is giving! Every time it came to giving, I pretended as if I was not interested!
During Shiloh last year, I came again as usual. We were here at the Business Conference, and the Bishop was admonishing us on giving. So, this year I purposed in my heart that I would give my Shiloh sacrifice in a few millions. When I did that, the doors that opened afterwards, if I am to work the way I am working, in 50 years there is no way I can get it.
This year alone, God has given us three properties: two of the properties are being developed and the third one is about being developed as I speak.
God also gave us 4 luxurious busses! To crown it all, in August 15″, at the Queen’s Medical Centre in New York, my wife delivered a beauty baby boy! I thank God!” — Samuel, M.S.
8-Year Marital Delay Destroyed via Shiloh Sacrifice!
“For eight years, I believed God for a life partner. During Shiloh 2013 sacrifice, I planned to give a material seed but while the Bishop ministered, he said, “What is the use of giving a sacrifice that would not be acceptable unto God?” He further said that we should challenge God because He is not a user or robber of men. Then, the Holy Spirit ministered to me to give half of what was in my bank account. Meanwhile, I planned to use the money for my professional exam.
When I packaged the sacrifice, I didn’t ask God for anything, rather, I wrote on the envelope, ‘God prove to me that you are not a user and robber of men.’ I made a vow that I would share my testimony on the altar. Previously, each time suitors approached me, I always fought them. Thereafter, I separated myself and read “Conquering Controlling Powers’ authored by the Bishop and God delivered me. During 21-day prayer and fasting in January 2014, my husband whose Zonal centre was at ldi-oro, Mushin, said that the Holy Spirit ministered to him to worship at the Zonal Centre in Montgomery, Yaba. That was how we met that day.
In July 2014, we had our introduction and in November, we were gloriously married without financial stress!” — Mr. & Mrs. Alikulola
TESTIMONIES FROM THE ALTAR OF VOWS AT SHILOH
Divine Lifting Via Shiloh Wow!
“Last year, my business collapsed. In order to make ends meet, I started working with my friend who was paying me N20,000. With this N20,000 my tithe was top priority. Instead of spending my tithe, I would rather trek or wait until transport fare became cheaper, all in the bid to ensure that my tithe was paid regularly.
When Shiloh 2012 sacrifice was called for, I pledged N30,000. I promised God that I was going to redeem my vow with N5,000 monthly.
By January this year, I gave the whole N20,000 as my first fruit.
By June 27, I completed paying my wow and by July 8, my boss fired me for no reason; but God removed me for a reason! By August, the God of turnaround turned my life around. He gave me a supply that made me travel from state to state and from capital to capital! As I was travelling, millions were flowing into my account.
In one week, I bought a Camry car, I bought two plots of land and I became an importer. Right now, as I am speaking, a forty feet-container is on its way for me! l give glory to God!” — Anem, I. A.
202%. Increase via Shiloh Wow!
“I came from a generation that no one had ever succeeded or helped anyone. In Shiloh 2011, I made a covenant with God. I told God, “I am going to initiate my business with You and I am also going to covenant it for myself.” I pledged to sow a seed of 10,000 dollars for myself and 2,000 dollars for my business. I decided to redeem my personal sacrifice in March; but l dropped my company sacrifice at Shiloh 2011. When I got back home, there was a project I wanted to start in the village. I wanted to build a bungalow for my parents. When I wanted to start, the Holy Spirit told me, ‘Go and redeem your Shiloh sacrifice. If you redeem it, I will start the wonders!” I redeemed the Shiloh sacrifice on March 2012.
In April, God gave me a plot of land in Abuja. That same month, the project was started. It was no longer a bungalow, but a very good duplex! I give God all the glory because that building is completed right now!
In September, God gave me another plot of land in Abuja. In October, God gave me another shop in Central Johannesburg! Now I also discovered that in 2012 alone, God has increased me 202% from my former state as of Shiloh 2011. I give God all the glory!” — Chima Obiodwin
“I had been suffering from cancer of the breast that led to the chopping off of one of my breasts in 2008. I took it to God in Shiloh 2009, that the sickness must be terminated, because in the beginning it wasn’t so.
On January 8, 2010, I redeemed my Shiloh sacrifice, trusting God for divine intervention. In the course of the 21 days of prayer and fasting, I went to the specialists at the National Hospital for my usual checkup. They could not detect any trace of cancer again!” — Ngori 0.
Divine Visitation through Shiloh Wow!
“I came to Shiloh 2007 for the first time. There, I made a vow for a specific amount of money, which I was to pay in 12 equal installments.
After Shiloh, I decided to squeeze myself and pay my vow within six months. Since then, I have not been under any financial stress! I now have surplus that I couldn’t make in the last eight years. I got promoted extra-ordinarily at work! Everything about me has just been working with ease. God visited me and gave more than I requested! To Him alone be all the Glory.”— Anikpo, E.
11 Years Barrenness Crushed!
“In 2004, I joined this Commission. I have been married since September 1999 and had battled with the reproach of barrenness, fear and doubt. I seriously doubted if it was the will of God for me to have children.
After I read the book, You Shall Not Be Barren, written by the Bishop, I was healed of doubt. Every year, I made sure I came to this altar with my Shiloh sacrifice.
In 2009, when I brought my Shiloh sacrifice, I wept at the altar. I told God that I wanted Him to make me a mother. That was the only thing I asked for. What God did in 2010, can be regarded as a miracle because, the day I knew I was pregnant was the day I put to bed. My menstrual period did not stop flowing, until I had my babies and my stomach was not very big to show I was pregnant. There was no medical device that could detect the pregnancy. By the strange acts of God, I was delivered of the first baby (girl) on October 5th and the second baby on October 6, 2010. The doctors said it was an abdominal conception which means the children did not grow in the womb, but in the abdomen. I believe the word of the Bishop that this could only be the act of God, and I give all glory to God!” — Elizabeth Salako.
In conclusion, our God is never in need, He only meets our needs through the mystery of sacrifice and vows, among others. Over the years, the altar of sacrifice and vows at Shiloh has proved to be a platform for Supernatural turnaround, Shiloh 2015 shall not be an exception.
Therefore, come prepared for an encounter at Shiloh 2015 and expect to return with a new song, for this is ordained to be your own Shiloh in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Jesus is Lord!
