I WAS NOT FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST OR CALLED INTO MINISTRY YET WHEN I WAS LED TO PLANT A CHURCH IN A VILLAGE THAT HAD NO CHURCH BEFORE. I WAS JUST FULL OF PASSION, PASSION IS PART OF WHAT HAS GIVEN ME MY PLACE IN DESTINY.
EVERYTHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH GOD DEMANDS PROMPT RESPONSE. SLOW MOTION DOESN’T WORK IN THE KINGDOM
NO MATTER WHO PRAYED OVER YOU, IF YOU DON’T TAKE STEPS YOU WILL NOT MOVE. NO ONE GOES FORWARD SITTING DOWN, YOU GO FURTHER TAKING STEPS.
THERE IS NO LIMIT TO WHERE SUBSCRIBING TO HIS INSTRUCTIONS WILL TAKE A MAN.
– Bishop David Oyedepo
Day 18, Evening Session,
21 Days of Prayer and Fasting (10th to 30th January 2022) Communion Service
Every kingdom secret is an open secret, it is available for whosoever is interested to search for it with all his heart. You want to have? Ask. For everyone that asks, not wishes. His covenant is the constant of every issue of life. Without a constant, every mathematical problem remains a problem. He is the rock that never fails. You can anchor your life on it. He is not an abracadabra God, He is who He says He is. He does what He says He does.
Until the time that his word came, he was struggling for an escape (Psalm 105:19) but after his word came, the king sent for him and loosed him and let him go free. His word came and his life took a new turn.
– somebody’s word will come tonight and the next turn of glory you will catch it.
Father, thank you for tonight, we are set for you tonight. Speak to us as a people, speak to us as individuals. Receive all the glory.
Prompt response counts the most in our walk with God. It is a known fact in the field of athletics, track races particularly that it is how great your start is that determines your outcome.
A great start is vital in determining the price winners especially in a sprint. No matter how fast a runner is, if you miss the take off point you have lost it. Every fraction of a second is vital. Life is a race. Hebrews 12:2.
Every vision is a race, prompt response to the sound of the gun is vital in determining who ends up a prize winner. Virtually all the great names, the giants of scriptures were men who were prompt to God’s instructions, visions, directions and corrections.
The day Prophet Nathan said to David “you are the man”. He reacted promptly and wrote Psalm 51. He admitted he messed up and see how glorious he was restored. Prompt response not nagging. You nag He is God, you ‘dis-nag’ He is God.
God is an admirer of people that respond promptly to His instructions and corrections.
Don’t ever try to argue with God, you are wasting your life. Anything He tells you to do is to your advantage, God is gaining nothing from you and me Sir.
He said, you are bragging, stones will take your place now. You will see how stones play sonorous musical equipment. Once I speak everything lines up including stones turning into musicians.
See what came out of Peter, James and John, the foundation trio of Jesus’ ministry. Prompt response, prompt response. Galatians 1:15-16. That is Paul, prompt response: the key to a world of exploits. 2 Chronicles 20:3.
They won the war gallantly without having to shoot an arrow. Every vision is tied to time. Habakkuk 2:3.
There is a limit of time to which you can still enter an exam hall. ‘My sister, the only sister that I have had a child and we were doing naming this morning, that’s why I came late. You have done your exam in your sister’s house’.
You can’t walk in here at any time. Many have been banished from the exam hall, how will they change class?
They waited too late to count. The captain of the Philistines charged his armies (1 Samuel 4:9). You don’t say I am coming when you are confronted with a battle.
We say your house caught fire and you say I am coming first, there is a meeting I need to attend.
Time, time, time, time is of essence. You can’t start your 21 days fasting on Monday, the angels assigned have gone back so you are praying into the basket. The time is gone.
You find a word from the Lord in your personal study and you delay, it has gone. 1 Corinthians 16:13. Jump at the sound of the gun. Slow motion doesn’t work in the Kingdom, not here. Genesis 12:1, 17:23, 22:2. Prompt response, that is where the greatness of Abraham came, prompt response to every instruction. I was the one who wrote Welcome to 2022, vision 2022. I went through it line by line again last night.
Anything you write and you don’t do anything about is in the archives, it will not work for you. I can tell you this by the word of the Lord: slow motion has eroded many of the good things in the kingdom. Dragging when you are supposed to run. Genesis 49:3-4, Judges 5:15-16. Procrastination is a gateway to a world of frustration. Great thoughts of heart, great searches of heart, zero action.
No matter who prayed over you, if you don’t take steps you will not move. No one goes forward sitting down, you go further taking steps.
Very clear unmistakable vision, mandate delivered for 18 hours, I will be stupid to be searching for anything. ‘Now the hour has come’ it doesn’t need the confirmation of anybody whether apostle, prophet or teacher.
By the sixth day, I called a meeting. “Hello brethren, we have been around each other for some time. I met with God and I was in that vision again Sir. The atmosphere was thick.
The action plan was put in place for those who are willing to be part of bringing the mandate to fulfillment. Same month, the following Sunday, in the afternoon fellowship began. 29th of May, Faith Liberation Hour began. In no time became a household name, you don’t sleep with a vision, you run with it.
You don’t sleep with instructions, you won’t get nothing out of it.
– You must count this year, your crown another man will not take.
‘Arise, get down to Lagos to save me a people’ 19th July 1989. Same day the staff was dispatched. He is a God of prompt response. And I naturally had no taste for Lagos before, we were having a nice time by His grace. I was in a car tired and hungry ‘ the harvest of Africa is now overripe, rush in and preserve it from decadence’.
Wednesday night, Friday evening we flagged off. Brought out a giant map of Africa sprinkled the blood and said “lift your heads oh ye gates”. On the 14th of June we opened an office. In January of 1995 the Army of the Lord left. Prompt response.
Everything that has to do with God demands prompt response. I entered into a vow when I found it never to borrow. It’s over 40 years, I have never attempted it. I know my source so I am connected to it.
When I saw God’s covenant of prosperity, I bought into it and swore that I can never be poor. I encountered Matthew 6:33 and I entered into a covenant in 1976 to make it my lifestyle.
It is still intoxicating me till now. Prompt response counts the most in our walk with God. When I saw what guarantees peace, joy and fulfillment in a family, I wasn’t married.
I was in a quest for it. I don’t want to struggle in marriage, what is your plan oh God for marriage? He showed me and I knew I will have a hitch-free marriage because I will align.
My family is not on my prayer list, Oh God let this family work, it is working because I came to know what makes it work and I signed up for it. That is how much weight is in prompt response.
– May the spirit of slumber get out of everyone’s life tonight.
He showed me the secret of Church Growth March 24th 1984 after a three day fast. Why is this Church not growing? and He showed the things behind the scenes. Here we are by grace. Prompt response. You miss the planting season of a crop, it is gone. Prompt response counts the most.
This is preparatory for prize winners of the 2022 race of this spiritual family. Fasten your seatbelt and get ready for a race of your life if you will receive the prize. You want to be a prize winner?
Run with your leg, you can’t run with my leg. We serve a covenant keeping God not a Father Christmas God.
Soul winning is not a calling, it is every believer’s responsibility. John 15:14-16. It’s not a calling, it’s not a special anointing, it’s everyone’s responsibility. I had no calling when the Lord led me with passion to see a Church planted.
I wasn’t baptized in the Holy Ghost. Proverbs 23:26.
I saw a Church planted within 72 days. A grass Church built within 72 days. I had a glorious send off from that place with a bush lamp as my gift.
‘The light you brought to our village, let it shine all round the world’. Is it not shining now? Passion is part of what gave me my place in destiny.
God does not need sympathy. Plug yourself into the race. Where your obedience will take you, no effort can take you there.
The very day ‘I the God of wonder double is visiting you’ was the day I shared it with the Pastors. I said I am just coming from a vision, where God said to me ‘I the God of wonder double is visiting you’. We prayed about it together and on June 1st this thing started and it changed our ministry forever. Prompt response is key to where you are going
– No one will lose their crown to another, you will wear your crown.
We serve a covenant-keeping God, your prompt response will make a prize winner out of your life. Every revelation you engage with promptly, rewrites your story. Jesus lived permanently under instruction. John 5:30.
Prayers: Lord as I partake of the communion tonight, let me never play down on your instructions again in my life. The same Jesus order of grace, I tap into it tonight.
There is no limit to where subscribing to His instructions will take a man.
– Evil shall not happen in your lifetime, these your eyes shall not see evil anymore.
– May the encounter of tonight remain a plus to everyone’s path tonight.
– May His correction soothe you like honey from tonight.
– May there be no more negative reactions to the word of God in your life anymore.
– No one shall be buried in your household this year.
– You never know a better last year in the name of Jesus.
– Every year, a quantum leap over the previous shall be your experience.
– It shall be a year of quantum leap in every area of your life.
