- WE ARE SPIRIT FILLED, MISSION MINDED BELIEVERS that come together from different Christian denominations with the objective of witnessing Christ in all parts of the world.
IN THE BEGINNING
Concerning the perilous times that we are living in, Jesus said, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations.” He didn’t say “parishes will be set up in every city”. Inspired by the Holy Spirit to focus on preaching revival to the remote and the unreached places of the earth, Evangelist Sommy Erekosima established the God’s Armour Bearers Outreach (GABO) in 2000.The organization mission is to bring together spirit-filled believers and ministers from different denominations and nations and equip them with relevant knowledge to go about as ‘Christ witnesses to the unsaved, unreached and backslidden just as the early apostles did.
GABO members are committed participants of local churches, but they are devoted to the Great Commission going about ministering salvation, healing and deliverance in a non-denomination platform. Mark 16:15, Acts 10:38.
Instructively, the apostolic Church was not a religious organization, but a dynamic spiritual organism endued with supernatural power. Following that order, all GABO programs are all-inclusive so that it can achieve the unity of the body and to build bridges among the various denominations in cities visited. Hence, GABO Miracle crusades and Evangelism Explosion Training (EET) programs are done in collaboration with the local of Churches.
It is to the glory of God that in the past 14 years, GABO revival meetings had achieved incredible revivals and deliverances, more especially fostering unity in the body of Christ everywhere GABO went. For instance, in Chennai, 475 Pastors and Pastors wives participated; 333Pastors & Pastors wives in Madurai (India); 27 Pastors in Nairobi (Kenya) 18 in Mombasa (Kenya); 55 in Bonny (Nigeria); 32 in Kopeya (Ghana)
“Thanks be to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places; And have sanctified us to be holy & blameless. And have qualified us to be His Armour Bearers.
We have been commissioned to “Go into the nations &Preach the gospel to save souls, Heal the sick, Deliver those oppressed of the devil, Redeem the lands back to Christ & Revive the Churches.
Grant us oh God to operate in the fullness of Christ resurrection power; as we are willing to share in the fellowship of His suffering. Help us oh Lord in Jesus’ name, Amen”!
HOW DO GABO SEE WITNESSING AND PRAYER?
“I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father“. John 14:12
GABO philosophy is that every believer is saved to do what our Lord Jesus Christ did; we are to witness Christ to others irrespective of vocations; to heal the sick and deliver those oppressed of the devil. Jesus bequeathed the supernatural power to the Saints, but many believers are not able to manifest it because the supernatural cannot function in a static organization. In other words, witnessing and continual prayer is a command through which believers’ supernatural power is ignited.
“And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another “.John 4:36.
Basically, there are two categories of people involved in evangelism ministry; the SOWERS and the REAPERS. We SOW through prayers and giving but we REAP or harvest through winning souls to the kingdom. However, one person can participate in prayer, giving as well as witness
