DADDY HEZEKIAH OUR ROCK AND STRENGTH!
Our holy and stainless Daddy, your children, the Temple Youths of Living Christ Mission, London Branch wish to felicitate with you on the birthday celebration of your greatest achievement and first born, our precious Mummy Chukwunazaekpere Urenma Hephzibah Hezekiah, during this Golden Year.
Daddy, Living Christ Mission was birthed and came to be what it is today because you listened to the voice of your Father. You answered that call, consecrated yourself and became a prisoner in order to reap souls for God.
Through thick and thin, you have never wavered in your faith in God, rather you have continued to reveal an enormous amount of strength, focus and courage especially in the face of major trials and temptations that would have buckled lesser men. No wonder all the titles bestowed on you, such as the title ‘Odum Ebo Ndi Igbo’ (Lion of the tribe of Igbo), not only corresponds with that which your Father, Jesus Christ, bore whilst on earth (Lion of the tribe of Judah), but also expresses the immeasurable strength and courage with which you protect and guide your cubs in the form of your children. There are no surprises then that having blessed you thus, God decided to further enrich your life by placing not one but two great beings in the persons of our Shepherd Mother-General, Princess Chukwunazaekpere Urenma Hezekiah, and the Hero Among Students, Princess Onyinyeomachukwu Samuel Hezekiah, into your capable hands to nurture and protect as your heavenly partners. Our humble Daddy, by placing these wonderful creatures into your capable hands, God has indeed proven that He does not make mistakes. Your children could not have resembled you more; for they are love, peace and unity personified, they are fearless, courageous, great leaders, strong, bold, respectful, humble, amiable with an excellent spirit of God dwelling in them, just to mention but a few of their sterling qualities.
In you, precious Father, we have seen the perfect fulfilment of Deuteronomy 28:1-14 time and time again and with your encyclopaedic knowledge of the Bible, we have been consistently blessed with your undiluted teaching of God’s law for our greater good. Your unquantifiable zeal and desire to impart your knowledge on us to help us make heaven cannot be denied and to your true children, holiness, righteousness and salvation has become our watchword.
You are our comfort when in pain, our joy when in sorrow, our peace in a stormy ride, our fortress when in turmoil, our rock when disheartened, our Lion when in danger, our hope when broken, and the champion of the needy. No distance has ever been too great in stopping you from saving your children when we have most needed it.
Daddy, indeed you are a RARE gem with a big heart of gold.
As we celebrate the birthday of your beloved daughter, Princess Chukwunazaekpere Hezekiah, in this Golden Year, we will not fail to thank you, Daddy, for you and your Father made this day to be and we are eternally grateful for that.
To sum it up, we would like to use this Bible Passage to express just what you mean to us and all you do for us – ‘Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good as long as you live so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.’ (Psalm 103:1-5). Congratulations on the birthday celebration of your daughter, Princess Chukwunazaekpere Hezekiah, and congratulations beloved Father on having a remarkable 50 years of stainless service in the Lord.
May our Good God continue to bless and keep you for us Daddy and grant you many more years in Jesus’ mighty name we pray, Amen.
Temple Youths, London Branch.
