The General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Pastor Mensa Otabil has said the African continent will see a turnaround and become a destination for job seekers from America and Europe.
Justifying his position on the shift in Africa’s fortunes, he said his positive outlook of the continent is not premised on physical entities but rather on a deep belief of God’s just and fairness not to lift up one and neglect the other.
Speaking in a message titled, “we will get it back”, on the opening night of Greater Works Conference, Pastor Mensa Otabil re-affirmed his belief that Africa will become the most significant continent on the planet.
Pastor Mensa Otabil encouraged the congregation not to limit God but rather be inspired by the example of the prophet Jeremiah as they seek to move the African continent from a state of hopelessness.
He anchored his sermon on Jeremiah chapter 32 and recalled how God showed Jeremiah the impossible situation ever, where an external and an internal enemy had taken over Israel.
Pastor Mensa Otabil demonstrated how God restored the nation in the midst of captivity and impossibility. He likened the situation to some foreign powers who have impoverished Africa and taken her assets including locals who were taking advantage of a bad situation and making it worse.
