INDUSTRIALIZATION BY BISHOP (DR.) S.I. OKELEZOH
MAIN TEXT: PSALM 68:1-14
Industrialization is God’s cities spreading abroad through prosperity. It is only industrialization that can change a village into a city. A city is a prospering settlement with viable economies and high standard of living. Attaining the position of a city in the individual sense requires industrializing (hardwork).
Through faith and understanding we have the knowledge of industrialization. God created everything through faith, for by faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God… (Hebrews 11:3). By the framing of the earth, God hath laid a foundation (provided raw materials) for us, his children, to create and he gave us the secrets of industrialization to do magnificent things.
Jesus came to give life to a dead earth (environmental life). As a result, the riches of the earth got restored, hence industrial revolution manifested through Christ. When we are truly born again we receive the mind of Christ to do great things.
After God created man in his own image and likeness, He blessed man and made him fruitful and told him to multiply and replenish the earth, spread abroad. (Genesis 1:28), hence the blessings of God only come upon those who have conformed to God’s image and likeness. (Genesis 1:26)
