TRYING TO HIT THE CHURCH IS LIKE A LANDROVER ATTEMPTING TO HIT A MOUNTAIN.
YOUR RUBBER BUMPER WILL SCATTER!
FAVOUR IS THE CURE FOR ALL MISFORTUNES.
THERE IS NO PROVISION OF REDEMPTION WITHOUT SPECIFIC DEMANDS FOR ACCESS.
FAVOUR IS OUR BIRTHRIGHT BUT THERE IS WHAT TO DO TO TRIGGER, PROVOKE AND SUSTAIN THE FLOW OF FAVOUR.
GOD’S PRESENCE IS WHAT EQUALS FAVOUR. GOD WITH A MAN IS WHAT EQUALS FAVOUR.
– Bishop David Oyedepo at Covenant Day of Favour Service, Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland First Service.
By high favour, Mary never knew a man yet gave birth to the greatest mortal that walked on the face of the earth. Sarah had long ceased ovulating so there was nothing like egg talk less of eggs, yet the promise was born. In the name of Jesus, everyone on this ground and around the world who is connected to this service, the favour of miracle children is released in your life. Because favour is the cure for all misfortunes, today marks the end of all misfortunes in your life. Lift your two hands and ask for a definite encounter with God this morning via His word.
Thank you heavenly Father, we all look up to a dramatic change of story in this service. Let it be the portion of every one of us.
UNLOCKING THE SUPERNATURAL. This connotes it is domiciled in you but you have to release it. Every child of God is born a wonder to his world, it’s not his ambition. It is the miracle of redemption. John 3:8. We must get to a point where we certify our redemption not appropriate it. Isaiah 8:18. Zechariah 3:8. Jesus said we are to be wondered at. Most of the events of this ministry you have to be inside to even agree that they are true. That is to be wondered at. People say this is too good to be true, no downtime in 41 years? There must be some things they are doing behind the scenes that we don’t know. This cannot just be the Bible.
That is how your life is ordained to be, that they see you soaring and they can’t see you sweating. They just see you scaling heights and they can’t see the struggle behind it. He found us struggling, He came to our rescue. We were battered and beaten, He came to beautify us. We were without form and void, He came to fill us with His presence. I just wrote a tract that we are going to invade the cities with ‘WE SERVE A STORY CHANGING GOD’. You have your copy to study and plug yourself into it and then we move them in hundreds, thousands and millions. We serve a story changing God.
You are not redeemed to be pitied, you are redeemed to be envied. Matthew 8:27. There is no provision of redemption without specified demands for access or specified demands for delivery. For instance, He gave us power (Revelation 5:12), power is not for free, you pay the price of a thirst (John 7:37) to access power. Psalm 63:1-2. It’s not for free so don’t go and wish power, you go after it. Riches! Oh Yes but you must understand his covenant of access to wealth and operate in it. All those things given to us are real but people are not interested in the demands. Psalm 119:97-100. Wisdom is not free.
You are just registered into that school to start changing levels as you succeed in exams. Somebody said do you mean you don’t have any problems since you came into ministry? Exam is not a problem for students, it is part of the program. It is when you fail that it becomes a problem.
If you find a student weeping because of an exam, he has a problem – a mental problem. You went to school to change classes after passing the exam. Challenges and problems are not the same, challenges make champions by overcoming them. I was under one of the most grievous attacks but I overcame it in grand style with no attention. You are running to win a race, you can’t be looking at who is insulting you.
– The last spiritual test you failed is the last you ever fail in your life.
So favour is our birthright but there is what to do to trigger, provoke and sustain the flow of favour. Which this ministry by grace has succeeded to do. In the name of Jesus Christ, I welcome you to your realm of favour. When you are on a tour with the President, every favour accorded the President you are entitled to it too. You can’t travel with the President and they put you in a third-class hotel. The highest class of hotels where they will put you. You may be a gardener but for that moment everyone is at your beck and call because you are in the company of the President. God’s presence is what equals favour. Genesis 39:3,21. God with a man is what equals favour.
The honour of God rubs off on you because you are in His company. Don’t tell me it was the dream that Joseph interpreted that brought him to the throne. Did he interpret any dream for Potiphar, How did he get favour there? The keeper of the prisoner didn’t dream any dream, how did he get favour there. Everybody saluting the President is saluting you even if they don’t like you. That is what I am enjoying, I am in the company of the King. We are always on tour together. The favour keeps flowing.
There is what entitles you to that companionship. “Go into the world and preach the gospel, I am with you always”. It is not “I am with you always that starts” it is “Go”. So if you don’t go, I am not with you. Get on the Go always and I am with you always. This Church carries that presence in unmistakable terms. You only know it when you try to hit the Church, you hit it and you are the one that breaks. You don’t get angry with a mountain and go and hit it with your car, because your car is a Land Cruiser with a rubber bumper. It will scatter into the engine. That is how you are ordained to be, you are lively stones built into a spiritual house, you are not ordained to be toiled with by devils. I pray that you will receive your own rain of favour in this service.
Spiritual stewardship is what secures companionship with God. Galatians 6:7-9. He sent them two by two to the place where He will come. When He sends you and you are on the go, He comes along with you. Mark 16:15-20. His presence is at a cost, a cost of obedience to the Great Commission. His perpetual presence that puts you in command of signs and wonders and gives you favour is at the cost of your commitment to the great commission.
