SEVEN MINISTRY LESSONS FROM THE ATTACHED POSTER BELOW:
By Irabor Wisdom.
Every time I come across the attached handbill, I keep receiving instructions and messages that will help me stay focused in ministry.
THERE WAS NO PASTOR DAVID IBIYEOMIE AND PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE ON THE HANDBILL, EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE BOTH IN FULL TIME MINISTRY AS CHURCH FOUNDERS AS AT THAT TIME:
Don’t struggle to be noticed or recognized.
Just keep serving faithfully and fruitfully.
A day will come when it will be very clear that your results can no longer be ignored and a space will be given to you at the top.
If Papa is to do Ministers’ Conference today and wants to feature two Sons outside of Winners’ Chapel, your guess is as good as mine.
MOST OF THE PEOPLE THAT CALL YOU FATHER TODAY, WON’T SEE YOU AS THEIR FATHER TOMMOROW:
As at that time, every person on that handbill referred to Papa as their Father. Today the story has changed. Some don’t even relate with his Ministry any more. Every Father must have the capacity to enjoy new Sons and allow Sons that no longer want to follow, to go.
THE DEPARTURE OF ANY SON HAS NOT IN ANY WAY REDUCED THE RESULTS AND PROGRESS OF PAPA OYEDEPO:
If any Son leaves you and you stop progressing, then something is wrong with you.
You should progress beyond the departure of a Son to prove your Leadership Capacity as a Father.
Infact, your Father doesn’t need you, you are the one that needs him.
NO MINISTRY HAS A PERMANENT CURE TO THE ISSUE OF REBELLION:
You can only reduce it by teaching them the Fear of God, a Life of Integrity and Loyalty.
But after all the teachings, who wants to go will still go.
Dear Son, at any point in time you feel like going, never you go without the Blessings and the Good-Will of the House.
You will always need it.
WHEN YOU STOP HONOURING AND PURSUING YOUR SPIRITUAL FATHER OPENLY, THE RELATIONSHIP WILL DIE A NATURAL DEATH:
The success of a Father and Son Relationship is sustained by the dogged Followership of the Son.
No matter how powerful and useful you are as a Son, no Father will run after you.
It is your responsibility to follow after your Father.
IN MINISTRY YOU HAVE TO CONSTANTLY PRODUCE RESULTS TO REMAIN RELEVANT:
Only God knows how Papa Oyedepo has been able to maintain RESULTS both in season and out of season.
You have to keep producing results to keep relating with him.
Papa has zero tolerance for a life without continuous fruit bearing.
May God help everyone of us connected to him, to keep moving upward.
NO MATTER WHO LEAVES YOU, THERE WILL ALWAYS BE ONE ‘BISHOP DAVID ABIOYE’ THAT NOTHING CAN TAKE AWAY FROM YOU, BECAUSE HE SEES SERVING YOU AS A CALLING AND NOT A FEELING:
All the ‘Bishop Abioyes’ in other Ministries have all left their General Overseer half way. The only Bishop Abioye that is still in the same place God planted him, is the original one that God gave to Papa Oyedepo.
If it is not the Winner’s Chapel Bishop Abioye, he should not be called Bishop Abioye, otherwise you will have yourself to blame.
