IN 1982, WHEN THE PROPHETIC WORD CAME FOR THE PRINTING PRESS, THERE WAS NO TYPEWRITTER IN THIS COMMISSION.
I HAD NEVER SEEN A GATHERING OF 2000 PEOPLE AS AT 1982 WHEN THE PROPHETIC WORD CAME FORTH THAT WE SHALL SOON SEE MILLIONS GATHERING.
WE WERE LESS THAN 50 AT THAT MEETING WHERE THIS PROPHETIC WORD WAS RECEIVED.
WHEN WE FIRST CAME TO FAITH TABERNACLE, WE DIDN’T FILL UP ONE ARM OF THE SANCTUARY.
TODAY, WE HAVE 4 SERVICES AND GETTING READY TO MOVE TO THE NEXT PLACE OF WORSHIP IN A SHORT WHILE.
IT ALL DIDN’T HAPPEN OVERNIGHT, BUT AT THE END IT BEGAN TO SPEAK.
IN LESS THAN 66 HOURS, WE WILL CROSS OVER TO 2022.
DON’T BOTHER YOURSELF THAT THERE ARE ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT IN 2021:
3 DAYS TOO MUCH! IT SHALL COME TO PASS
-Pastor (Mrs) Faith Oyedepo at CHoP
*Whatsoever God has spoken concerning your life, for this year 2021 shall surely come to pass.
*No matter how it may be looking right now, don’t let the enemy make you to keep focusing on what he thinks God ought to have done and has not done.
*Focus on what God has done that you do not merit and give Him thanks.
*As you do so, you will discover that the mystery of God making prophetic Words to speak at the end will find fulfillment in your life.
Father, we have returned this early morning to thank You for all of these amazing testimonies. You are the Doer, receive all the praise. Take all the glory, in the name of Jesus Christ. Thank You for answered prayers, both corporately and personally. Lord, accept our thanksgiving. Right now, as we go into Your Word, visit us again, speak to us again, change our story again and let your name be glorified, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
All through this week, the last week of the Year 2021, our subject of consideration is captioned:
AT THE END, IT SHALL SPEAK
Can you say it louder and clear please, “At the end it shall speak.” All through scriptures, in Bible history, in our contemporary world, this is one of the major mysteries in the Word of God. If only we can understand this principle of God, life will become more fulfilling for us. Whatever God declares speaks loudest at the end.
When does it speak loudest? At the end.
Whatever God declares, always both in Bible history, contemporary world, speaks loudest at the end.
Ecclesiastes 7:8 – God always reserves the better for the last.
What a joy, this week is the last week of the year 2021. In actual fact, it is less than 3 days now to go and 3 days too much.
Can you say it, “3 days is too much.”
It is actually less than 66 hours to cross over to 2022, but that is too much for God
Say with me, “3 days, too much”
Reference the first testimony we heard just few minutes ago: In one day, a jobless man became a Group Managing Director. Not just a Managing Director, Group; you know the meaning of group? It is more than one, at least two. Not just a Managing Director, but a Group Managing Director, owning 2 vehicles overnight.
-Somebody’s story is about to change.
-Whatsoever God has spoken concerning your life, for this year 2021 shall surely come to pass.
In one day: 2 vehicles, having an official apartment.
Over half a million (Naira) as salary, not 50,000 oo; not 60,000 ooo; 600,000 Naira for one man who was jobless last night and slept as a jobless man, woke up today; 600, 000 (Naira) minus other entitlements.
-Your story will change.
-No matter how much it has changed since the beginning of the year and now, it will still change before the end of this year.
At the end it shall speak – Habakkuk 2:3
-Therefore, in your life, God’s prophetic Word for this year shall speak. There shall be no carry over for you.
No matter how it may be looking right now, don’t let the enemy make you to keep focusing on what he thinks God ought to have done and has not done.
Rather, focus on what He has done, which you and I do not merit and begin to use that to give Him thanks. As you do so, you will discover that the mystery of God making prophetic Words to speak at the end will find fulfillment in your life.
1982, among the prophetic declarations that came from God through His Servant, “the Press shall operate at an industrial scale.”
As at that time, no typewriter, not even one, yet the prophetic Word came, “The Press shall operate at an industrial scale.” Right now, is it not speaking?
-What God has said concerning you will speak.
1982, the prophetic Word came, “You shall soon see millions gathered.” Yet in that same meeting, where the prophetic Word came, we were less than 50. I had never in my life, never, as at that time, seen 2,000 people gathered. Yet, “You shall soon see millions.”
Is it coming to pass now or not?
-What God has said concerning somebody here for this year shall soon come to pass.
Two quick examples from scriptures this morning. The first one is about the wall of Jericho
The wall of Jericho, we are all familiar with the story – Joshua 6:16
We are told how wide, how tall this wall was and yet the children of Israel were to pass into Jericho and there was no way they could have done this without that wall falling down.
Joshua 6:15 – “…they rose early about the dawning of the day.” Early!!
You are here this morning, early.
Do what? Shout.
Why? For the Lord has given you the city.
Johsua 6:20 – “It came to pass”, underline that in your Bible.
-What God has said concerning you shall come to pass.
-He has spoken that this year is your year of turnaround era. It shall come to pass.
Don’t bother yourself, only 3 days to go: 3 days too much! It shall come to pass.
-That wall of impossibility staring you in the face will fall down flat.
When is it going to fall down flat? Is that going to be 2022? When? Now. It shall fall down flat.
-God who did it for the children of Israel is the same God you and I are serving, He will perform it in your life.
Whatever God has spoken concerning your health, concerning your finances, concerning your family, concerning your relationship, concerning your career shall come to pass.
When is it going to come to pass? Now. Shout a loud Amen
The Word of the Lord concerning the collapse of the wall of Jericho came forth but the wall of Jericho, remember, only fell after the 7th round on the 7th day. After the 6th round, it did not fall down; but after the 7th round, it came to pass.
-Before the end of this year, God will visit you.
Second example: The valley of the dry bones. We are all familiar with that story in Ezekiel chapter 37 verses 1 to 4, 7, 10
-Something great is going to come out for somebody.
When is it going to happen? Now.
The louder, “When is it going to happen?” Now
The loudest, “When is it going to happen?” Now
A mighty host arose out of the valley of dry bones.
It doesn’t matter how dry that situation might be right now, refuse to give up, refuse to lose hope, because something mighty will still take place in your life.
-Something mighty will still take place in somebody’s life.
1989, God said to His servant, “Arise, get down to Lagos. Raise Me a people.” 1989
Then the Church Ministry in Lagos began and we started on plastic chairs again: few people in number.
By the time, the Church was moving from Raji Oba to Canaanland, many of us have heard the story over and again, it was counted 50,000 people. But it didn’t happen overnight, but at the end it began to speak.
“This is the place” God said to His servant concerning Canaanland. We came here and then everybody on one arm, that was not even filled.
But is it not speaking now?
1 Service, 2 Services, 3 Services; 4 Services and then getting ready in a short while to begin to move to the next place of worship.
At the end it shall speak: don’t give up. Don’t lose hope. Your best days are right at the corner.
However, in closing, thanksgiving is a must to see prophecies fulfilled. To see prophecies fully delivered, we must be thankful. Remember Abraham and Sarah.
Genesis 18:11 – naturally all hope lost, but in Romans chapter 4 verse 20, both of them continued to give glory to God.
Did it come to pass or not?
-Something is coming to pass in somebody’s life, but we must engage the mystery of thanksgiving.
Therefore, beginning from this moment forward, till the end of this year, “Father, I thank You!!”
You say it in your understanding, you say it in the Holy Ghost, you speak it in tongues.
As you rise up: Father, I thank You
As you lie down: Father, I thank You
As you walk around: Father, I thank You
Then let’s get ready tonight. The last Midweek Service for the year 2021. God will visit somebody.
Prayers: In your understanding, in the Holy Spirit, “Father, I thank You.”
Say it in faith, be confident about it, let Him hear your voice. Now say it in your own understanding and throughout this day, “Father, I thank You.”
In the Holy Ghost, begin to thank Him right now.
At the end, it must speak in your life.
Let Him hear your voice of thanksgiving right now as you glorify His name.
