I KNOW THOSE WHO PREACHED BITTERLY AGAINST THIS MANDATE BEFORE, THAT IT’S FAKE AND NOW THEY ARE PROMOTERS OF THE SAME THING THEY ONCE ATTACKED.
FOCUS ON WHERE YOU ARE GOING, STOP BOTHERING ABOUT WHO IS FOR YOU OR AGAINST YOU.
IT TAKES PATIENCE TO MAKE ANY MEANING OUT OF YOUR WORK WITH GOD. ALL THESE EMERGENCY PRAYER LIFE OF 21 DAYS, THAT IS NOT WHAT IT TAKES
TIRELESS PRAYER WORK IS WHAT GROWS, ESTABLISHES AND KEEPS THE CHURCH ON THE PATH OF GROWTH.
NOTHING WORKS WITHOUT INDIVIDUALS AT WORK BEHIND IT INCLUDING GOD’S PROPHETIC AGENDA.
EVERY CHURCH THAT IS TIRED OF PRAYING CHURCH GROWTH PRAYER WILL STOP GROWING
– Bishop David Oyedepo
Day 11 Evening Session,
21 Days of Prayer and Fasting (10th to 30th January 2022) Communion Service
No one sees a great future in what he engages with and ever requires any form of encouragement. It is not being able to see it that makes you wonder “am I wasting my life or wasting my time. By the way what am I doing?”. Jesus endured the cross, endured the shame because he could see the end. This thing guarantees speaking loudest at the end. You can see that end the way some others have seen it and can’t see discouragement in their life.
Whether they even have challenges or not because they can see the end. When they were spitting on him, he saw the end. When they were pressing the crown of thorns on his head, he saw the end. When they pierced him by the side, you don’t know what you are doing. At the end he said “Father forgive them for they don’t know what they are doing?” because he could see the end. Lord open my eyes to see the end of my delightsome obedience to your instruction. I am not wasting my life, I am not wasting my time. I am working my way to that colourful, glorious end that you have ordained for me.
Lord Jesus let tonight be another eye opening night for every one of us. Make tonight another eye opening night that will empower everyone to live above discouragement, live above the mockeries of men and make our way to the realm of glory in the name of Jesus Christ.
There are some things we read and we just need a deeper insight by the day of what they mean. He said give and it shall be given unto you, it’s a good measure but first pressed down and shaken together to see whether you mean what you are doing before it starts to run over. Is it a good measure and I am under this kind of pressure? Yes! That is how good measure starts. The seed you put in the ground if it were a living being that has emotions and feeling, he will hate you for life because it is under pressure and it is dying. Suddenly it begins to rot, you can imagine watching your leg rot away.
That is the process of life, your seed looks like it is lost but it has to die first before it can live. That is the stage you want to jump.
Good measure but shaken underneath the ground with temperature, moisture and everything working on it and suddenly life surges and the life that surges is not the thing you sowed its grass. Can you see now I have wasted my labour, is this what I sowed? After all my time. I expected maize to just come out so I can harvest. It will now grow and turn to flower and then it begins to bear fruit, the fruit will develop gradually before you can eat it. It’s not the first day you see the cob that you eat it. You will be eating grass. It’s still in the grass stage. It takes patience to make any meaning out of your work with God. It takes patience. All these emergency prayer life of 21 days, that is not what it takes. It enfires you to keep running. You get results in stages.
– You won’t miss your ultimate result.
Stand where He has called you to be, stop window shopping. You don’t have a spare life. He called me to be in Nigeria, I am in Nigeria, I have zero regrets. Maybe he doesn’t have opportunity? I have more opportunities than anybody can think of. I stand in my calling, don’t be a Professor applying for Local Government Chairman. You don’t even have respect for the knowledge that you have and for the beneficiaries who have benefited from you. All things work together for those standing in their calling.
Before you were born He knew where you belong, when you find out and you walk in it delightsomely and obediently the end is always glorious. Jeremiah 1:5.
There is no kite anyone will fly in front of me in nearly 41 years hitherto that I will consider. Get me off my track? Never. If they say on your marks, go! And you run into another person’s track you have lost the race.
– No one will run off your track.
What God is saying is “let me lead you and I will keep justifying you on every track that you take and I will glorify you at the end”.
– Your end is sweet, your end is great. No one here will regret at his end.
Our line of thought is WHY MUST WE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR CHURCH GROWTH.
When you are tired of the child bearing process, the family stops growing. If you give birth to one and you say “Thank you Lord, I am done”. That family will remain three – yourself, your husband and the one because you are no longer interested in the process of child bearing. The same way if you are no longer interested in the process of Church Growth. It stops growing.
No Satan is attacking you, the attack was you by saying “I am tired of the process”. Every church that is tired of praying Church Growth prayer will stop growing. Ezekiel 36:37. You are tired of that, forget it. Are you demanding for Church Growth or you are fighting demons?
Conceive it, carry the pregnancy, enter the labour room and you will deliver it. When you are tired of conception, you can’t carry pregnancy so entering the labour room is a waste. Carry it in your heart that God wants all men saved and I want to be part of this chariot. The process is conceive it, carry it, enter the labour room and deliver it. Lord give our team a thousand souls this week, I led it practically by myself and at the end of the week, a thousand souls. What? I started with one month, then I conceived the one for one week, and then delivered it.
Pregnancy is not a burden to any woman, it’s a delight. You can even be taking pictures with it, Isaiah 66:7-8. Labour room will not deliver without first a conception. Shall a nation be born at once? Elijah gave birth to one nation at once. All of Israel shouted “the Lord is God”. They were worshiping Baal before Elijah got them out of the hand of Baal on the altar of prayer.
Carry your pregnancy, go to the labour room to deliver. Simple process, highly tasking. You can’t command exploits if you can’t conceive the fact that as a seed of Abraham you are ordained to be a blessing to your world. Just to get what to eat, buy a car to ride, send children to school, I don’t need global impact. It’s the task, if they gave it for free he will be the one to rush at it.
Global impact is not for free, nothing that matters is free. Even Christ could not deliver his mission without work. Prayer work is what grows the church. Tireless prayer work is what grows, establishes and keeps the Church on the path of growth.
– Grace to be a part of that army all of your days, receive it now.
Paul’s generational impact in ministry is a product of abundance of labour. When you hear labour here, just think of labour room. You want to deliver anything? Go to the labour room. Nothing works in any life or in any place without individuals at work including God’s agenda for supernatural Church growth for the end time Church. It is a prophetic agenda but it won’t deliver without people at work. James 2:18-20. We must pray down the Lord of the harvest – The Holy Ghost Himself.
We can contact but He is the only one who can convict. Go with me today with fire in my lips that will break the hearts of men unto salvation. Luke 11:13. We must pray down His irresistible sound like a fire alarm and the rush to the safety center – the church. Holy Ghost turn on your fire alarm and gather people to your safety center – the church.
You can’t grow any population without bearing children. So when men and men are getting married, they want to destroy the population and also women and women. It is not the product of civilization, it has been done down there for a long time. Thank God we don’t have that here, they know it’s a no go area.
– Your sons won’t marry other people’s sons
– Your daughter won’t marry other people’s daughters. You gave birth to them, they will give birth to their own children.
Everything delivers according to our understanding of it. Tonight we partake of this table for another level of eye opening miracle. That will give each of us a kingdom view of every truth of Scriptures. Give you an eye and a kingdom view of every truth of scriptures which guarantees a secured future.
You and I are seeds, except you are truly dedicated to Him, you have no future.
When you take my flesh and my blood, I open your eyes into next realms of glory. May this communion take each of us into new realms of insight that will give us a kingdom view of every truth of scriptures, showing us how it applies in the kingdom. The clearer we see it, the faster we take advantage of it. No one doubts what He sees.
Lord by this communion table tonight cause my eyes to begin to see brighter granting me a kingdom view of every truth revealed in scriptures thereby securing my glorious future in the Kingdom. That will happen tonight. The brighter we see, the faster we take delivery. The brighter your head lamp is at night, the faster you can drive. The more blur your head lamp, the slower you go. You can only go at the pace that the light shines.
Anybody can deceive you on what they saw, you can’t be deceived on what you saw. Even when they are telling you the truth you think they are deceiving you, you didn’t see it yourself. When you hear, you see and you handle, every devil of deception in hell cannot confuse you. That is what this communion will do tonight. Kingdom view of the truth leads you to the point of handling.
– No more shall anyone here be identified with shame in the name of Jesus.
– You and your household, no one in your lineage will suffer shame and reproach anymore.
That’s what this kind of perspective does, you hear, you see, you handle, you are free from doubt.
– Any situation that cannot arrest Jesus is not permitted to arrest you.
– Whatever you demanded tonight on the altar of prayer is settled.
The Lord just told me to tell you that your vision has nothing to do with anybody’s view or stand. It has to do with you and your faith. Stop talking about somebody against you or for you. The just shall live by His faith. Every vision has to do with the faith of the visionary.
You get bothered about things that are not your concern, if you know how many Pastors have left this place since inception, some angrily, some were sacked, some messed up, we have never gone down once. Your faith is what secures your vision. Stop looking around, that is not where your problem is, your greatest problem is you.
1979, I told our brethren “Brethren, the time of Let’s go is over. I have gone, you can follow if you are interested. I have been going since some stopped going from that day perhaps out of anger, that is their choice.
– This year you will go. Others may sleep, others may slumber but you will be awake. Others may read other meanings but you will read Kingdom meaning.
I know some who wrote books against prosperity before and are writing for it now. I know, I don’t want to mention their names. I know those who preached bitterly against this mandate before that it’s fake and now they are promoters of the same thing they once attacked. Please don’t let no devil kill your vision.
If you fail it’s your fault. Don’t fabricate visions, you pay for them. Saying what God has not said, you are lying against Him and he will leave you to go and face it.
Going where he didn’t send you, you are wasting your life, you don’t have a spare. Please jealously guard your destiny. They have fought this ministry for long, it didn’t do anything because we kept facing where we are going. Face where you are going.
– This year God will surprise you.
Every promise of heaven is preceded by “IF”. If you are interested. You need a kingdom perspective for yourself as regards your destiny.
– This year you will pass the test.
Thank God for He has not put your destiny into another man’s hand but your hand. Receive grace for responsibility.
