Introduction

Living in the presence of God is the best life because in the presence of God, there is fullness of joy ( Psalm 16:11) and is God’s will to dwell among His people.

During the just concluded National Conference, THE TEACHINGS highlighted this because the presence of God means heaven and hell is the absence of God. To explore the fullness of God’s presence, we must live up to our responsibilities.

In His presence, signs, wonders and miracles happen. Even when we experience closed heaven and the siege of the enemy, which is equivalent to living in hell, going to his presence guarantees our healing, and so, heaven and hell begins here on earth.

To continue living in His presence, we must keep the baptismal fire burning and endeavour to fulfil the mandate to disciple the nations, because The Holy Spirit of God has special projects all over the world and we are the labourers and so, we must not sleep at our duty post.
