most ‘unusual’ prompting from the Spirit of God, that my task and
assignment under the umbrella of House on the Rock was coming to an end!
Naturally – and again, my first reaction was a rejection of such
thoughts, and a refusal to contemplate such ‘direction’.
He continued, ‘With my natural mind and logical thinking at the
time, I assumed that such prompting could not be from God! But the
nudging and prompting was persistent and impossible to deny –if I’ve
learned anything in my walk with Him, it is in His voice and the
LEADINGS and DEALINGS of the Holy Spirit. And so after two years of
consistent prayer and waiting upon the Lord, as difficult as it was to finally embrace and accept that it was time for yet another “exit”.’
He went on to say further, ‘It is against this backdrop that my
wife and I chose to courageously take the step of faith in obedience to
God. I have prayerfully sought the understanding and permission of my
spiritual father to be released from the responsibility of pastoring the
wonderful local assembly and church Family of The Refuge, House on the
Rock and my other responsibilities within the Rock Foundation.’
It is rumoured that Pastor Ekwueme has already set up his own church, named Horn of Festival Ministry.
It remains to be seen how many of the House on the Rock members will be following him to his new church as is normally the wont.
