EVERY PROPHETIC WORD DELIVERS BY FAITH – Bishop David Oyedepo

Spread the love

THE CHURCH OF CHRIST IS THE GREATEST HEADACHE OF THE devil. NOT JUST OUR LOCAL ASSEMBLY. THE SPREAD, THE GROWTH!
SOME ARE WORKING SO HARD ON HOW TO BE GREAT. WHAT A WRONG STEP TO TAKE.
WORK HARD TO KEEP ENHANCING YOUR GREAT INVESTMENT IN ADVANCING THE KINGDOM.
IF AFTER GOD TOLD ME, “ARISE, GET DOWN TO LAGOS”, WE WERE CONFESSING IT, DAY AND NIGHT, YET WE WILL NOT MOVE: THAT’S WHERE IT WOULD STOP.
NO ONE WILL EVER SEE THE PROPHETIC COME THROUGH WITHOUT HIS FAITH ACTIVELY ALIVE.
WHEREVER PRAYERS STOP IS WHERE CHURCH GROWTH STOPS. JUST LIKE WHEREVER PREGNANCY STOPS, IS WHERE FAMILY GROWTH STOPS.
IF WE EVER TRY TO STOP THIS COVENANT HOUR OF PRAYER, GROWTH WILL STOP.
IF WE STOP THE GOING OUT, THE HOUSE WILL NEVER BE FILLED.
IF YOU ARE A PART OF THE GROWTH, YOU ARE ORDAINED TO BE A PART OF THE GLORY.

    *It’s one thing to receive the prophetic Word.
    *It is another thing to engage with what is required to actualize the prophetic Word.
    *It is neither zeal nor power that makes prophetic word come to pass. It is faith.
    Thank You Father, thank You for Your manifest presence in our midst. Thank You for the mystery of the Wonder Double agenda that is ongoing. Blessed be Your name, in Jesus precious name, we have given thanks.
    Ask Him to speak to you this morning one more time. Jesus, I want to hear from You today, speak to me right now. Cause my ears to hear Your Word, cause my heart to understand Your sayings and move me forward by the light of Your Word today. In Jesus precious name, we have prayed.
    Lord Jesus, thank You for hearing us. Thank You for showing us light this morning, in Jesus precious name.

EVERY PROPHETIC WORD DELIVERS BY FAITH

No prophetic (Word) comes through on its own.

It is wonderful to receive it, but equally important is to engage with it according to the rules.
Luke 1:45 – Prophetic Word is converted to a blessing with faith.
I believe this and I believe what is required to make it happen.

Just imagine that God said, “Arise, get down to Lagos” and we were confessing it, day and night, yet we will not move: That’s where it would stop.
Imagine God said, “Get out of the old Church into this forest”: Yes, I have heard You Lord, I know You are ever faithful to anything You say. Whatever You will do in that forest, do it here, this is where the people are.
One will be there for life.
It’s one thing to receive the prophetic Word, it is another thing to engage with what is required to actualize and faith is a fundamental requirement for actualizing any prophetic Word.
It is not zeal, it is faith. It is not power, it is faith. It is not passion for God, it is faith.
No one will ever see the prophetic come through without his faith actively alive.
Like we all know, the gates of hell are all out to resist the continuous growth of the Church of Christ. Not just our local assembly, the Church of Christ is the greatest headache of the devil.

The spread, the growth!
Darkness has light as its worst enemy. So it is the devil himself (that) is the worst enemy of the growth and the expansion of the Church of Christ.

He (Christ) is the light of the world and the devil is the darkness of the world. The enmity is eternal. It will only stop at the judgement on the last day where he will be bound in chains forever and ever, but it is on. Darkness and light are avowed enemies.

No wonder he (devil) comes down to make war with the seed of that woman who we are.
Because we are the light of the world and he is the darkness of the world, so the two must not meet and any attempt of darkness to confront light will end the darkness.
“I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not be able to prevail against it” – Matthew 16:18
So he (devil) goes about blinding the minds of people, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ who is the image of God should shine unto them – 2 Corinthians 4:4
“No, no, don’t join them; don’t go there.”
But it will take faith along with prayers and fasting to dislodge the gates of hell against blocking access to the continuous growth of the Church.
Matthew 17:21
“Why could we not move this thing forward?”: It won’t go forward without prayers and fasting.
And not just prayers and fasting He said, praying and fasting along with faith. He said, “first because of your unbelief, however this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting” – Matthew 17:21
Faith is fundamental to it; prayers and fasting is what engages that faith to deliver.
Ephesians 6:16
When faith is being resisted, then couple it with prayers and fasting; and faith will deliver maximally. This is very important.
“Show me your faith without the works that empowers it for maximum delivery and I will show you my faith by my works” – James 2:18
We have no choice.
Wherever prayers stop is where Church growth stops. Just like wherever pregnancy stops, is where family growth stops: If you are tired of being pregnant, you are tired of having more children.
Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing? That is, there is always a gathering against the Church of Christ everywhere – Psalm 2:1
Psalm 2:4 – He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh
But ask of Me and I will give you the heathen for an inheritance – Psalm 2:8
Don’t just watch, ask of Me, take it by force. That is what makes it work in the Kingdom.
Psalm 2:1-8
They can’t stop it but you may demand for it.
Wherever pregnancy stops, like I mentioned, childbearing stops and family growth stops.
Isaiah 66:7-8
Pregnancy must be sustained to labour and labour to childbearing and childbearing to family growth.

It is the same with the Church.
If we ever try to stop this Covenant Hour of Prayer, growth will stop.
If we stop the going out, the house will never be filled. “Go to the highways and hedges and compel them to come” – Luke 14:23.

That woman went after that man and got him. He met with Jesus, got saved and all those devils that held him in bondage gave up and he began to enjoy abundant life (documented testimony).

You go into the labour room for every child you give birth to. They can’t transfer labour, just like they can’t transfer the foundation of a building.
“That software: move the foundation of Senate building to Faith Academy, then put it there.” No.
Every child given birth to came out through the labour room; came out through the process of pregnancy to the labour room. Another one is coming, the same process. Another must come, the same process.
So it gets people tired, to the point that, “fear not, little flock. It is your Father’s will to give you the Kingdom” – Luke 12:32
You have tried and tried, it is not working: “Yes, not all Churches will be great. Your own is supposed to be small.” Then you settle down with failure.
-You are going places.
Remember in the growth of the Church lies the glory of the saints. If you are a part of the growth, you are ordained to be a part of the glory.
“Their nobles shall be of themselves” – Those are all products of Church growth.
Jeremiah 30:21
They all started as brethren, but because they were engaging their hearts in the pursuit of the Church, He made nobles out of them: captains of industries, captains of science and arts, captains of invention.

They are all byproducts of a revival.
That is the way it works. Some are working so hard on how to be great. What a wrong step to take.

Work hard to keep enhancing your great investment in advancing the Kingdom.
That person was distributing tracts all over the place, “young man, come.

There is a seminar going on. I want you to be there. Go there now.” God said to him, “go there now, I sent him.” He went there and now doing business with that multi-national company (documented testimony).
Jeremiah 30:19 – very great deal. It is a big-time business. You truly engage, He keeps changing your level. That is the way it works.
Every prophetic Word delivers by faith and faith without works is vain- James 2:18
Nothing to show with ‘I believe God, I am believing God.’ You work the works of faith to give it real value.
Prayers: Give God thanks for the Word because you must be a part of the glory this year.
Grace to be a part of the glory this year, now receive it. Grace to engage in the works of faith in advancing the Kingdom of God, receive it. Grace to embark with the works of faith, doing the works of faith, in advancing the Kingdom of God, receive it now.
It covers your secret corners, it covers your open engagement in pursuit of souls, in praying for souls and He will reward you openly for it.

Pray like more than a conqueror: Father, engrace me to engage with the required works of faith in advancing your Kingdom this year. I want to see what I have never seen, help me to do what I have never done.

You sow sparingly, you reap only sparingly. You sow bountifully, you reap bountifully.
Now ask Him.

Thank You Jesus. Blessed be Your name. Take that grace everybody. Take it, you are more than a conqueror. Take it, it is your portion. Take it, no slow motion this year, no casual engagement this year, but hearty engagement. Take it from God, it is your right. It is your right but only on demand.
