I AM SPEAKING TO THE UPCOMING GENERALS OF THE NEW GENERATION:
YOU HAVE TO START FROM THE START.
ENJOY STARTING FROM THE START!!!
SOME WON’T START FROM THE BEGINNING. THEY BORROW FROM EVERYWHERE: FROM ENEMIES, FROM FRIENDS; SO THEY ARE JUST CHOKED.
START FROM WHERE YOU ARE. THAT IS THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT STEP.
THERE ARE MANY LEGAL BUSINESSES YOU CAN DO IN NIGERIA WITHOUT REGISTERING WITH CORPORATE AFFAIRS COMMISSION.
YOU HAVE CAPITAL! DEVELOP CAPITAL.
YOU DON’T NEED CAC’s REGISTRATION TO SELL PALM OIL IN NIGERIA
-Bishop David Oyedepo at 1st Service, Faith Tabernacle
Next Level Banquet Service
Yet, we have never borrowed. Absolute contentment with each phase.
Is borrowing a sin? No, it is a weight. “Lay aside every weight and every sin” – Hebrews 12:1
If I borrow from you, won’t you come and stay at the entrance of the Church and as the Ushers collect offering, you collect it, “let me take my money first.”
Jesus was born as a baby, He grew to become a child, He now became an adolescent at 12 and became a son at 30: The Almighty, that came in the form of a man
But now you want to start as a man. Every child starts as a baby. Start there.
I am speaking first and foremost this morning to the upcoming generals of the new generation: You have to start from the start. Enjoy starting from the start.
If you see this congregation today, that is where it started from (referring to the pictures).
Total income of Kaduna Church 18,600 Naira, Kaduna. 1984, a year.
1985: 55,000. It think it was following the rhythm. ’85:55
I prepared as hard as I do today for meetings. No dull moment. You saw my coat (referring to the old pictures): 3-piece ooo. You don’t know 3-piece coat. You need to know that one.
One day, I was coughing blood: my wife said, “you should go home.” I said, “No, if this is the last one I would do before Jesus comes, I would do it.”
It is not bread and butter, chocolate Christianity.
Wake up, fasten your seat belt and move.
Some won’t start from the beginning, so they are still struggling to have a start. They won’t start from the beginning: Never. They borrow from everywhere – from enemies, from friends; so their life is just choked. They won’t start from the beginning.
There are many businesses you can do in this country without any corporate affairs, legally too. Do you need corporate affairs to sell yam? For what? To sell palm oil? No.
You are already personal affair. You are looking for money to register. Register what? You have capital! Develop capital.
I know one of my daughters in the house, her business was moving food from here (South West Nigeria) to Maiduguri (North East Nigeria). Big time business today.
You don’t need corporate affairs, you don’t need nothing.
It is to carry food. People want to eat. Will they ask you whether you have certificate before they buy food?
A young man came in from the US in Kaduna: Master’s in mechanical engineering. Waited for job, none. He went to the market and found out how much they are selling palm oil in Kaduna market.
He happened to be from Edo (State), went to Edo (State) to find out how much they are selling: “Ahh, this is money.” So the remaining money with him, he started moving palm oil. He bought a house in the GRA.
I mean, no corporate affairs.
Life is so simple.
Some people: My God, masters degree, Mechanical Engineering. Palm oil? No, no.
But you will do palm hunger.
Is something making sense to someone here?
People are looking for who will teach them English. You have a first degree, very good one in English and you are waking up and sleeping every night.
Just put signboard: English Class, Extramural classes
You will live your life. But by the time you finish sleeping, you can’t remember English again. 1st year, 2nd year: you are sleeping. No. That is not life.
They say, “why?”
Response: I just…I think God is asking me to go into motor dealership
Ehnn, ehnn, okay. You will soon be selling planes.
Start from where you are. That is the Abrahamic covenant step: He said, “from the place where you are, look northwards” – Genesis 13:14
All you see is coming but start from where you are. The journey to the topmost top is open and free; it only takes the wisdom of the covenant to get there.
