The General Overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Worldwide, Dr Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, has described 2024 as a hydra-headed year, with plenty of things to rejoice about and plenty to worry about.
In his New Year message, Olukoya noted that 2023 was running a race and handed over the baton to 2024.
“All the events of 2023 will dovetail into 2024 and if you could survive 2023, you will survive 2024,” he assured.

According to the cleric, 2024 is a troublesome year, but not as bad as 2023, as he told Christians to increase their prayer fire in the New Year.
“If you reduce the temperature of your prayer fire, you will lose it. You should get your spiritual life on serious fire. Do an overkill with your prayers,” the cleric admonished.
Olukoya warned Nigerians from doing trial and error in their activities but rather to ask God for directions this year. He stressed that high-level tension will increase mental troubles, warning that lukewarm Christianity is dangerous.
He warned that “many ungodly kings shall receive slaps from angels.”
Olukoya gave what he called a 21-point fortification key to the worshippers, including the fact that they should never speak or think negatively about themselves; to be God-pleaser and not a people-pleaser, and not to compare oneself to others.
Charging them to develop and covet spiritual gifts by praying to see visions, the general overseer urged the worshippers to serve God with all their might, strive for excellence, be heavenly conscious, reject discouragement and be spiritually watchful.
“We must increase our prayer and fasting temperature; live a life of uncompromising holiness; possess the spirit of the fighter and we must be addicted to the Word of God, make a decision to speak the truth always,” he said.
Olukoya advised the congregation to develop a healthy and spiritual family life; do not turn to what they left behind.
