The LoveWorld founder names each year and will announce the theme of 2022 at the New Year’s Eve Service this Friday.
Parting ways with the ‘Year of Perfection’
At 2020’s New Year’s Eve Service, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome revealed that 2021 would be the ‘Year of Preparation.’
“In Heaven, preparation is being made, and all over the world, angels are out preparing people, helping with the word of God all over the world. I saw them working and working and working. I saw that the things around them did not matter. They were not distracted by the activities around them. They were just busy preparing people,” the pastor said as he presented the theme.
“Why are they ignoring the things around them? They said that this is more important. ‘We are getting them set.’ Why? The Lord is coming soon. I looked, and behold, in the world of darkness, preparations were taking place. What are they preparing for? They are preparing for war because they know their time is short,” the LoveWorld president added.
