GOD’S VISITATION IS NEVER GENERAL, IT IS ALWAYS PERSONAL. IT IS POSSIBLE TO BE IN THE CONGREGATION AND MISS THE VISITATION.
IT IS NOT ABOUT WHETHER YOU ARE PRESENT WHEN GOD SHOWS UP, BUT YOUR PERSONAL PREPARATION WHEN HE DOES.
IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO ATTEND SHILOH, IT IS VITAL TO PREPARE YOUR HEART.
ONE OF THE GREATEST ENEMIES OF DIVINE VISITATION IS DISTRACTION.
YOU WILL NOT MISS OUT ON YOUR PORTION AT SHILOH 2021.
-Pastor David Oyedepo Jr at CHoP


Lord, we are grateful this morning for the blessing and the privilege of standing in Your presence. Thank You for the awesome testimonies we have heard, these are clearly your doings and they are marvellous in our eyes. For it this morning, we say thank You. Now we are looking unto You for an encounter with Your Word, let Your Word transform each one of our lives. We give all the praise and glory to You in Jesus precious name we have prayed.
God’s Word makes it clear that Shiloh is prophetically ordained as a mountain of encounter with God and the purpose of those encounters is for the release of our inheritance.
Joshua 18:1-3
We must come to understand that our journey in redemption gives us the privilege and opportunity to have our inheritances with God. In fact, God’s Word makes clear to us that we are heirs of God – Galatians 4:6-7.

To be an heir means to have inheritance with God.

So clearly according to God’s Word, every redeemed child has an inheritance with God. But where the inheritance is not yet manifested, Shiloh is a God ordained platform to take possession of what is yet to be manifested.

-That is why I know that for you this year, at Shiloh 2021, whatever any inheritance that you have in Christ yet to be manifested in your life shall be delivered supernaturally.
But we discover this inheritance comes to us via the channel of revelation.

1 Samuel 3:21 – God’s instrument of unveiling is His Word, but you and I must come to understand that every great outcome in the Kingdom is a product of great preparation.
2 Chronicles 27:6 – It is preparation that will give way to visitation.

That means if you and I are going to take delivery of our More Than Conqueror package as ordained by God, then you and I must position for the visitation of His Word.
That is why all through this week, we are going to be looking at this line of exhortation captioned:

GETTING SET FOR AN ENCOUNTER OF A LIFETIME AT SHILOH 2021

Exodus 19:10-14
God makes it very clear, if you are going to see His glory come down, then you and I must prepare ourselves adequately. The question we must therefore address is how do we prepare or what do we prepare?

This is a vital question to answer if we are going to enjoy God’s visitation at Shiloh. Let me say to this to us, it will help us.

According to the Word of the Lord, God’s visitation is never general, it is always personal. It is never general, it is always personal. It is possible to be in the congregation and to miss the visitation. It is not about whether you are present when God shows up. It is about whether you are prepared when God shows up.

Amos 4:12 – Meeting with God demands personal preparation.
What must I prepare or how must I prepare?

  1. We must prepare our hearts for our prayers to ascend to heaven.
    Proverbs 16:1 – Before God will answer, man’s heart must be prepared.
    Jeremiah 17:10. Your heart must be prepared before God will appear.
    2 Chronicles 16:9 – Why is He looking for this man? To show Himself strong in their behalf.
    It is not enough to attend Shiloh, it is vital to prepare, because the appearance of God will only be made manifest to those whose hearts are prepared.
    Jeremiah 30:21
    The question you must ask yourself, “Is my heart ready?”
    You heard the testimony that was read to us (documented testimony).

That individual said they had been stagnated in their job due to oppression and all kinds of office politics and so forth. But he said he came to Shiloh and prayed like never before.

What does that mean? His heart was engaged. His heart was not disconnected.
It is possible for you to be present and yet your heart is absent. The Bible tells us very clearly, “these people draw near unto Me with their mouth and with their lips they honour Me, but their heart is far from me” – Isaiah 29:13.

The question is, “Where is your heart?” If you are going to have the visitation of God, you must be ready to eliminate distraction.
One of the greatest enemies of divine visitation is distraction.
I remember the testimony of one of us who said that she would come to Shiloh and she had waiting on God for the fruit of the womb for many years. Yet, there was no response from heaven. But she said she came to one Shiloh and said, “Lord, this Shiloh, I will ensure that I am not offended in anybody. No matter what anyone does to me, my heart will be focused.” The greatest thing that was getting her out of place was her heart was not focused. What did she do? She came, fixed her heart on God, refused to allow for any distraction and then she encountered God’s visitation. That barrenness was terminated because her heart was concentrated.
I will like you to understand that the concentration of your heart is one of the vital factors for the visitation of God. Your heart must be fixed, trusting in the Lord.

  1. Vital requirement for an encounter of a lifetime at Shiloh is everyone must genuinely repent of his or her sins to clear the barriers on our access to answered prayers.
    We must come to Him with genuine repentance.
    Psalm 66:18-19
    If you want to encounter God’s response to your prayer altar at Shiloh then you must clear the barrier of sin via repentance. Please take note of this, this morning. There is no sin that anyone commits that God is not ready to respond but you must be ready to repent from it. Please hear this and hear it very well. We must understand that until you confess your sin, you are not permitted to be forgiven of your sin. So forgiveness is at the mercy of repentance.
    1 John 1:9 – God is ready to forgive if man is ready to repent.
    I will like you to understand that you cannot pose for God and go far with God. If you are going to encounter God, then you must clean up.
    2 Corinthians 7:1
    There are many promises loaded for us at Shiloh.
    Hebrews 12:14 – without holiness it is impossible to encounter divine visitation.
    Therefore, I want to charge us this morning, in the days that are left between now and Shiloh, prepare your heart and cleanse yourself. Prepare your heart and cleanse yourself!!!
    As you do so, God Himself will descend on your behalf and by the time Shiloh is concluding, you are returning with your testimony.
    -By the time Shiloh is concluding, you are returning with your testimony.
    Prayers: Lord, I receive grace from You today to prepare adequately by preparing my heart by cleansing myself from all unrighteousness, in the name of Jesus Christ. I receive grace. I will not miss out!! I will not miss out of my portion at Shiloh 2021.
    I receive grace. Take grace from God. It will take grace to will and do of God’s pleasure. Lord, I receive grace this morning. I take grace from You. I will not miss out on my portion at Shiloh 2021. I receive grace!! Grace for effective preparation, I take it from You this morning. Thank You Father, in Jesus precious name we have prayed.
    -You will not miss out on your portion at Shiloh.
    -Every one of your hanging inheritances shall be delivered into your hands, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
    SPEAK TO THE DAY
    Another day is here, another working week is here. Speak to it right now and make your declarations concerning the day and concerning the week. Speak to it right now!!! Give Him thanks, in Jesus precious name we have prayed.
    -This week is declared blessed.
    -All through this week, God’s hand shall rest upon you.
    -Every one thing you have presented before God in the Pre Shiloh Encounter Service yesterday, this will be a week of delivery.
    -Your testimony will come your way speedily, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
    -God will surely visit you, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
    -All through this week, all things will keep working for you.
    -There will be no evil report coming your way, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
    So shall it be, in Jesus precious name. Amen and Amen.
