At a future date, the Church is going to be presented to the Bridegroom; and we will be chaste, not a filthy, half-in-bed-with-the-world Church (2 Corinthians 4:14).  We will have progressed from glory to glory until there’s only one more step, and that’s into heaven. \ You have been reconciled to God, so you can be presented holy, unblamable and unreprovable in His sight (Colossians 1:21-22).  You will be presented faultless before the presence of His glory (Jude 24).  We will stand before the presence of God’s glory for eternity, because of what He has done for us.

RE: “AMOSUN SURRENDERS 1,000 AK47 RIFLES, 4MILLION BULLETS ACQUIRED BEFORE 2019 ELECTIONS “- SETTING THE RECORDS STRAIGHT

1. The above story by Premiumtimes, an online News portal, represented everything but the true and factual accounts regarding a routine exercise that took place at the Ogun State Governors Office, Abeokuta in the morning of Tuesday, 28 May, 2019 as part of Handing Over processes and formalities from the then out-going to the in-coming Administration.

It is important to clarify that NOT A SINGLE AK 47 RIFLE was handed  over at the event. 

2. Senator Ibikunle Amosun would have loved to ignore this report for the simple reason that it is a matter for the remit of the Police and Security agencies. But, that course of action will appear disrespectful to well-meaning Stakeholders and inquirers on the matter. Secondly, the good people of Ogun State …
