*It may not look so in the middle
*It maybe far-fetched quarter to the time but at the end it shall speak.
*We must let go of anxiety but engage the forces of prayers, supplication and thanksgiving to see God’s plan come to pass.
Now work out your own salvation. Don’t sit down there and waiting for it to work.
Work out your change of position. Stop waiting for it.
Work out your change of level: stop waiting for it.
Work out your desired miracles: stop waiting for it.
You work it, you work it with the Word. When you work the Word in faith, God is committed to confirm it in signs. Work the Word in faith and God with confirm with signs and wonders.
Prayers: Grace to work out my own salvation in my walk with God. Receive that grace everybody.
Not waiting for it to happen, but working at it; working the Word, putting the Word to work, doing what God commands to do. Lord, I receive that grace this morning. Somebody is receiving it now. Receive it in truth and in deed. Thank You Father and blessed be your name in Jesus precious name we have prayed.
Our exhortation line for Covenant Hour of Prayer this week is captioned:
AT THE END IT SHALL SPEAK
It may not look so in the middle, it maybe far-fetched quarter to the time but at the end it shall speak.
You are going to dedicate the sanctuary in September and by July, the roof was not completed, but at the end it spoke.
At the end it shall speak!
Next Sunday looks so close. Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day?
With God, the earth can bring forth in one day.
“And the next sabbath day”, Not the next sabbath days, “almost the whole city came together” – Acts 13:44
The earth can bring forth in one day.
In response to Daniel’s victory, the king declared, “every kingdom under heaven that says anything against the God of Daniel will be fried, destroyed.” The earth brought forth in one day. All the kingdoms were under the kingdom of Babylon, the earth brought forth one day, so it is not strange. At the end, it shall speak.
Two months, too much. Then it became one month, we were still trying to tidy up but on the 18th of September, God came down: it is done.
-In the name of Jesus Christ, this last week will not be wasted by anyone of us.
“One day, myself and my partner”, he said in that testimony, “led 21 people to Christ in 1 hour 20 minutes.” At the end, it shall speak.
Somebody can cover up all the weeks that perhaps, have not been fully engaged in one day. At the end, it shall speak.
Though it tarries, wait for it, for it shall surely come to pass, it shall not tarry (Habakkuk 2:3).
Every vision, according to Habakkuk chapter 2 verses 1 to 3, speaks loudest at the end.
Every vision delivers fully at the end, but we must hold fast to the Word like Abraham. He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief but was strong in faith, giving glory to God (Romans 4:20). If you are Abraham’s children, then you will do the works of Abraham (John 8:39).
We must hold fast to the Word like Abraham did. God is forever up to anything He says. What He says, He creates, He is not looking for it, in case it is not found. Whatever God says, God creates.
-As the Lord liveth, come the 1st of August (2021), this Church shall be literally minimum its highest monthly average attendance since Wonder Double began in 2015.
He is a Wonder Double God, I will render double unto them. That is His Word (Zechariah 9:11-12).
“Even today do I declare” – so it is a 1-day stuff.
The Holy Ghost came and the Holy Ghost, the Son and the Father, they are one. He said, “for your shame, you shall have double” (Isaiah 61:7). So we serve a Wonder Double God.
-As the Lord liveth, come the 1st of August 2021, God’s verdict concerning this midst of the year revival shall be fully established.
But we must hold fast to the Word without wavering like Abraham. We must let go of anxiety but engage the forces of prayers, supplication and thanksgiving to see God’s plan come to pass.
Where we are, He brought us there.
Where we are going, He is the only one that can take us there.
Thank You for bringing us to where we are, You are the only One that can take us to where we are going. We didn’t get here by ourselves, not by power nor by might. Every house is built by some man but He that builds all things is God (Habakkuk 3:4). We are only fronting for God, He is the Master Builder, behind the scene.
We are not waiting, we are engaging in waiting.
The cure for anxiety is holding to your faith to the end (Philippians 4:6).
In everything, no matter how mountainous it may appear, by prayers and supplication with thanksgiving, you commit God to perform. We are full of thanksgiving, except the Lord builds a house, they that build it, they labour in vain.
We are not here by our capacity to get things done (Psalm 127:1).
We are not here because we are that strong and we are not passionate.
Thank God He gave us the passion. Thank God He showed us the light but behind the scene is God for by strength shall no man prevail (1 Samuel 2:9). We have prevailed to this point by the Lord and we can only get to the next phase by His hand.
Why Prayer? Ask of Me and I will give you the heathen for an inheritance (Psalm 2:8).
We keep maintaining that demand: Give us the heathen for an inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth for our possession.
That prayer applies to us so much, we are all over the continents of the world, so we demand, “give us the uttermost parts for our possession.”
He said, “you have not because you asked not” – James 4:2
So we have a responsibility to keep making demands for His promises to come to pass in our midst.
Very important: no one can be saved without the hand of God (John 6:44). You can’t be saved without God.
Zechariah 3:17 – He is the One that draws people into salvation.
Habakkuk 3:13 – He went forth for the salvation of His people. That is His job.
My God is King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth, that is what He does (Psalm 74:12).
The Father is behind the salvation of the saved. You can’t be saved without the Father’s hand at work. No one can be saved without the Father’s hand at work. No Church can grow without the hand of God at work. Be anxious for nothing, know the One behind the growth, call on Him. He is the God of increase and addition (1 Corinthians 3:6).
“…And the Lord added to the Church daily such as should be saved” – Acts 2:47
He is the multiplier God, He is able to make any congregation a thousand times many more than they are, at any time T (Deuteronomy 1:11). He is up to it any day.
The God of addition, the God of increase, the God of multiplication.
So no Church can grow without the hand of God at work.
When God saves, He keeps the saved (John 10:29).
“No one can pluck them out of My Father’s hand.” You can’t have abiding growth without the hand of God at work, that is why we must call on Him fervently this week like never before, engage with all our hearts not just religious prayers and enforce the hand of God through the prayer of faith, to bring His Word to pass in our midst. He is up to anything He says, don’t pity Him. God is up to anything He says, because whatever He says, He creates. He is not preparing for it, He says it and creates it.
Therefore, we must keep our faith alive till the end to see prophecies fulfilled.
You draw back, I (God)turn My back: that means I am done, I don’t think You can handle this anymore, then He turns His back.
-God won’t turn His back on your engagement.
Sir, it is the cheapest thing to get 10 souls in a week, with genuine commitment and faith in God that saves. Not in your skill of speaking or oration but faith in that God that saves.
No one can come to Me, except My Father which is in Heaven draws him (John 6:44). He is the One behind it.
Ezekiel 36:37 – We demand for it and by faith, we commit Him to do it.
-May this week be your most fruitful week ever.
-May this week be the most productive week ever in your walk with God.
-May your time on the altar of prayer be registered in Heaven.
-May you be listed among the Elijahs of this movement!
Elijah was a man of like passion, he prayed earnestly that it might not rain (James 5:17-18).
-May your voice register in Heaven. May your steps of action qualify you for rewards.
-May everyone under the sound of my voice today be listed among the Prize winners in this race.
And so shall it be.
At the end it must speak.
Prayers: Receive grace for extra-ordinary engagement this week.
You want to see what you have never seen, then go ahead and do what you have never done before. It is you that will determine whether you win the prize or not. Pray that prayer over your life.
Lord, make this week the most fruitful week in my walk with You till date. Make this week the most productive week in my Kingdom stewardship engagement. Make this week of turnaround in my spiritual life.
Prayer does not only change things, prayer changes people!!
Lord, change my life, move me forward in my walk with you this week.
Let my altar of prayer be fiery, let it be fervent, let it be burning with fire, in the name of Jesus.
Endue me with wisdom for the harvest!
Thank You heavenly Father and blessed be your name, in Jesus precious name.
-Well Sunday: the prize-winning day for every engaging Winner. Another man will not take your crown.
-Many shall be literally enthroned.
-They will call many forth, as it were from the Prison and get them through to the Palace.
-Many will receive calls of the strangest order. And you will be wondering, “how did it come by, how did he know anybody, I don’t know nothing there!”
God will surprise you. my God will surprise you.
At the end of this even, it will be seen on your family, seen in your career, seen in your business, made manifest in your health and in all areas of your life.
SPEAK TO THE WEEK
Speak to the week with all of your faith, speak to the week with all of your heart.
-The week is declared your week.
-Your week of change of story.
-You will encounter God and His mighty touch on your life.
