I KNEW WHEN WE HAD 35,000 PEOPLE AS STAFF, I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY WE ARE NOW.
HOWEVER, THERE IS ZERO STRESS. WE HAVE NEVER RAISED AN OFFERING TO PAY STAFF FROM INCEPTION TILL TOMORROW.
I HAVE NEVER SUFFERED A SLEEPLESS NIGHT. I AM SIMPLY UNDER HIS HIGHLY REFRESHING BLESSING.
NO GIMMICKS, NO MANIPULATION OF NOBODY.
I HAVE BEEN MARRIED TO MATTHEW 6:33 SINCE 1976: IT IS A FEW WEEKS NOW.
IT HAS NEVER STOPPED YIELDING, BECAUSE I WILL NEVER STOP DOING IT.
YOUR OBEDIENCE DOES NOT NEED ANOTHER MAN’S INTERCESSION.
YOUR BLESSING CAN’T STOP UNTIL YOUR OBEDIENCE STOPS.
NO MATTER WHO PRAYS OVER YOU, YOUR BLESSING WILL STOP WHEN YOUR OBEDIENCE WILL STOPS.
SUSTAINABLE OBEDIENCE EQUALS SUSTAINABLE BLESSING.
MY BLESSING IS IN MY OBEDIENCE. WHAT MY MENTORS DO IS TO BLESS MY OBEDIENCE FOR FRUITION.
YOUR BLESSING IS IN YOUR OBEDIENCE. YOUR PROPHET ONLY BLESSES YOUR OBEDIENCE TO BRING FORTH FRUITS WITH SPEED.
- Bishop David Oyedepo at CHoP
Prophetic Service of Blessings
Day 20 of 21 days of prayer and fasting
What is the difference between His blessing and the blessings acquired by man?
The blessing of the Lord maketh rich and adds no sorrow with it – Proverbs 10:22
Nobody is under any pressure, no rise in temperature, we are under God’s blessing.
Check on the other side: plenty of sleeplessness; plenty of gasping without heart’s problems.
Why? He is blessed with sorrows coupled with it.
God tempts no man with evil. Any blessing from God refreshes people.
-Now, tension ends in your life.
That is the difference. I don’t care how much effort, how much skill and then you get someone, phew
I have never, all these years suffer a sleepless night. Never! Never, never! I am simply under His blessing, like many of us in this Church today. Simply under His highly refreshing blessing.
No gimmicks, no manipulation of nobody.
“Whatever You cannot do Jesus, let it not happen.”
“Wherever You can’t take me, let me not get there.”
“Whatever You can’t give me, let me never have it.”
I even begged Him, “Lord, don’t bless me beyond where Your hand can reach me. I don’t want. I ‘no’ want.”
This peaceful, refreshing, pressure-free, ever-rejoicing blessing is enough for me.
No short cuts, no seeing some folks behind the scene: it is enough for me.
-From today, whatever appears like sorrow, through personal struggles or wrong track: crouched under the table of an unbeliever, ‘I just need your help’; God is very upset.
-May God never be upset with you again.
All through scriptures, that is the Word for this moment, the blessing of God usually trails man’s obedience.
Everything we can define as blessing in life is wrapped up in Deuteronomy chapter 28 verses 1 to 13. Everything the world defines as blessing is in there.
And all those blessings trail after verse 1 (Deuteronomy 28).
If thou shalt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord Your God and observe to DO, not to observe on paper, all his commandments which I command you this day that the Lord Your God shall set thee on high, without anybody’s extra input – Deuteronomy 28:1
Nobody’s comment is required: You
He will set you on high above all nations of the earth and all these blessings will not only come to you, they will overtake you. You will be swimming and struggling with them, “what do I do with this?” – Deuteronomy 28:2
You will be blessed in the city, blessed outside the city.
You will be blessed in your body and in your store house. Your baskets shall be blessed. Your going out and your coming in. You shall be above only. You will never come down.
As long as a believer continues to walk in His obedience, He keeps walking in the blessing.
our blessing can’t stop until your obedience stops. But your blessing will stop, no matter who prays over you, when your obedience stops.
There is no Apostle under the sun or Prophet greater than Moses, who can invoke a blessing on disobedience because the scriptures or the Word that unleashes those blessings cannot be broken – John 10:35, Matthew 24:35.
Until you can stop the sun and the moon, you can’t break my covenant – Jeremiah 33:20
For my covenant will I not break, no matter who is invoking it, no alter the thing that has gone out of my lips – Psalm 89:34
The blessing continues to flow as long as obedience remains intact, delightsome, ever growing, ever prompt, ever excite, prevailing circumstances; then the blessings come to you.
Every Shepherd must learn to know the state of their flock.
Why must I invoke the same blessing on everybody under the same unction, under the same prophetic mandate and it answers gbam in someone’s life and it doesn’t appear in someone else that was there?
Yesterday’s light in your room will not lighten your room today. Yesterday’s obedience does not count today. Where your obedience stops…
You turn on light in your room yesterday, darkness fled. You can’t come in there today, “O thou yesterday’s light, come”: you will be stumbling over your bed, over everything in your room because it has to be current obedience. It is current obedience that entitles believers to current blessings.
Where any believer’s obedience stops, there he has stopped the flow of His obedience unknowingly.
I have been married to Matthew 6:33 since 1976: it is a few weeks now.
It has never stopped yielding, because I will never stop doing it. It has never ceased to yield, it doesn’t need your prayer to answer Sir, it doesn’t need your prayer to make it work.
Your obedience does not need another man’s intercession.
“I mean, Papa, prayed for me”: Oh Yes, I did. I pray for others too.
“But it didn’t work”: Ask yourself questions.
Melchizedek blessed Abraham’s obedience. It was obedience that he blessed.
Eli blessed the obedience of Hannah, “The Lord grant thee that which you have asked”, if you asked – 1 Samuel 1:17
If you don’t ask, “The Lord bless what you don’t ask.”
What you don’t ask, multiply by 1 billion equals zero.
Blessings only enforce the integrity of God concerning what you have obeyed.
This is a family meeting, it is important for you to know it.
Why has this Church not known a set back in nearly 41 years? Because we have never stopped doing what we did to get to where we are:
“O Lord, save the lost; O Lord, deliver the captives; O Lord.”
You will never hear on this altar, “O Lord, give us money. Projects everywhere, projects everywhere. O God, O God.”
I know when we were 35,000 people on the staff, I don’t know how many we are now.
Zero stress. Never, never raised an offering to pay staff from inception till tomorrow.
God’s blessing usually trails man’s obedience.
When you are tired of obedience, you are tired of His blessings. The day you are tired of obedience, you are tired of His blessings. God is no respecter of persons – Acts 10:34
I will like you to listen to this message, as many times as you can: nobody is responsible for where another man is. Man is the worst enemy of himself because he won’t do what God says do.
Obedience: it’s the covenant gateway to secure and sustain His blessings.
Sustainable obedience equals sustainable blessing.
“Get thee out of Kwara”: Yes Sir.
“Now, don’t settle here. You don’t settle with Me. Arise, get down to Lagos”; Yes Sir
“Now, don’t settle here. People are climbing the trees to hear the Word. Go to the forest where only the ones called to you by the grace on you will come there”: Yes Sir
“Don’t have no Church in town”: Yes Sir
“Be the biggest fool of the day”: Yes Sir
Obedience: the day it stops, the blessing stops.
There was a great man in America who was tithing as taught by the mother and tithe his way to high places. Then it was occurring to him by the devil, “this tithe is too much”, so he started rationalizing and the business started going down and down. He went down bankrupt.
“satan, I bind you”: God said, “now, look out for where you began to fall and start all over again.”
The blessing stopped when his obedience stopped. His name: J.C Penny. He is gone to Heaven.
“It used to be groovy, great but I don’t know what happened!”: You should know. Examine yourself where you shifted your ground.
“O Lord, let him go from strength to strength”
(God’s response): O Prophet, tell him to do what gets a man to go from strength to strength”
They go from strength to strength everyone appeareth before God in Zion
They are not victims of online worship: You worship small, you take tea. You go to the bathroom, you are still watching the same Service, “Papa has not started preaching.”
By the time he comes back, ‘Papa has finished.’ He says, “shall we rise up?’” He also rose up. Let’s share goodness, “goodness and mercy follow me.”
You are playing games. You are playing Sir.
God told me something 1981, “my son, you are absolutely responsible for the outcome of your life.” What a word. How much impact it has done me.
Don’t look at those who are talking against you, those who are talking for you: face Me. You are absolutely, totally responsible, no one else to blame not even the devil, for the outcome of your life.
-I pray for a baptism of untiring obedience upon your life.
Untiring obedience, delightsome obedience. It’s not just Church attendance, Church register. Let Heaven reckon with you as a bona fide obedient son of the Most High God, daughter of the Most High God. That makes all the difference.
Sir, your blessing is in your obedience.
My job is to bless your obedience, ‘Kawai’ (Hausa word for only).
My blessing is in my obedience. What my mentors do is to bless my obedience for fruition.
If I was the custodian of the blessing, nobody here will be down forever, because my heart releases it. My heart enjoys your rise. My heart enjoys your living a problem free life.
So if I were the custodian, nobody will have a problem here. But unfortunately, I am not.
Can I have you say with me worldwide, “My blessing is in my obedience. My prophet only blesses my obedience to bring forth fruits with speed.”
