Abstract

Thousands of years ago, a man named Abraham (former name Abram) made a covenant with God which resulted in Abraham being the source of blessing to generations of Jews and gentiles alike. Noah, Enoch, Isaac, Jacob and numerous heroes of faith of old entered into covenant \\ith God which resulted into spiritual and material blessings. The rule of the game is simple: meet your side of the bargain with God and He will meet His. The God of Abraham of yesterday is the same today and evermore shall be. So He made a covenant with a hero of faith of our time Bishop David Oyedepo. The Deed of Covenant has a number of provisions one of which is the establishment of a university which will produce graduates who will turn Africa around. On His part, .God is individually moulding every student of the university writing His 'M)I'ds in tablets of stone in their hellris Md assembling every 1'Ul in their mental and physical faculties to be giants in their fields and win souls for His Kingdom. At the end of this week, the first set of such creations of God will be graduating. It is to this new generation of future leaders of Nigeria and of Africa that this lecture is dedicated.
