General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Daniel Kolawole Olukoya
General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), Dr. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, has identified anger, discouragement and unbelief as factors militating against breakthroughs for Christians.
Olukoya spoke in Asaba, Delta State capital at the opening of the Great Deliverance and Anointing Service which doubled as the commissioning and dedication of the altar of the Mid-West VI Region of MFM.
Dwelling on the topic “Moving from Mockery to Miracles and Insults to Results”, Olukoya described anger as a dangerous dragon standing at the edge of somebody’s breakthrough, noting that the exhibition of the spirit of anger could make people lose their breakthrough.
Making references to instances in the bible, he explained that anger is temporary madness, adding that: “Anything done in anger would always end up in shame. Anger hurts the owner and he will always defeat himself at the battle of life.”
According to him, discouragement which he identified as another factor against breakthrough is the most powerful tool Satan uses to steal so many people’s breakthrough.
Olukoya implored Christians not to give room for discouragement which according to him, was a potential killer, warning that “if you allow discouragement to settle down, it brings in worries and therefore unbelief sets in, then faith jumps out and problems continue.”
Speaking further, the cleric urged Christians to strive to possess extra-ordinary faith needed to survive in peculiar environments in order to conquer the spirit of unbelief which he identified as the third factor against breakthrough.
“When you are living in a crazy environment, a little bit of insanity is required for survival. Unfortunately, a lot of Christians do not have the required faith they need to survive in peculiar environment and this can rob anybody of his or her breakthrough,” he stated.
He encouraged the congregation to anchor their faith in God, saying He alone has the capacity to move anybody from mockery to miracles and from insults to results.
