IT WAS NEVER HEARD THAT A CHURCH WILL STAND TO BUILD A 50,000-SEAT SANCTUARY.
TILL NOW, IT HAS NEVER BEEN HEARD THAT A CHURCH WILL BUILD A SANCTUARY OF 100,000 BUT GOD IS ADDING IT WITHOUT STRESS, WITHOUT FOREIGN AID.
NO GOVERNMENT FUNCTIONARY HAS EVER BEEN CALLED FOR ASSISTANCE.
NO GREAT MINISTRY OUTSIDE AND I AM BLESSED TO BE CONNECTED TO MANY OF THEM HAS EVER BEEN CALLED FOR ASSISTANCE. NOT ONE.
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, LET YOUR HEART STAND STRONG WITH JESUS.
I HAVE ENTERED INTO PLACES IN MY LIFE, THAT MATTHEW 6:33 TOOK ME THERE, NOTHING ELSE.
THIS THING WORKS. YOU CAN’T MAKE GOD FIRST AND BE LAST.
-Bishop David Oyedepo at CHoP
Spirituality is a covenant common denominator for meaningful life
Romans 8:6 – life and peace
Whether you are in industry, you are in academics, an entrepreneur, you are an inventor, a writer. To be spiritually minded is life and peace – Romans 8:6. To line up with God’s Word as your way of life is life and peace.
My prayer is that no one will waste his precious life.
Walking with Jesus, I walk in the light, no darkness can cover me.
Strengthened by His Spirit, I will cross the Red Sea. Shining my light into the glory land.
You cross the Red Sea: There is a Red Sea always on people’s path to their promised land and walking with Jesus, God was in their midst and the Sea saw them and it fled.
You cross the barriers of life by walking with Jesus.
-My prayer is that no one’s promised land will be lost to careless life.
Down, down below zero level, she stood up and lined up with God’s Word, became faithful in walking with God and everything turned (documented testimony).
Prayer: Lord Jesus, engrace me for a sustainable, quality walk with You all the days of my life, in Jesus precious name.
SERVING GOD IS ESSENTIALLY FOR OUR BENEFIT;
Can you say this after me, “serving God is absolutely for my benefit.” God is gaining nothing from you and me serving Him.
I made a very brutal statement sometime, that God does not need you or me for anything. We don’t have to be in existence for God to be God.
And we don’t have to be born again for God to be God. Whether we are born again or ‘dead’ again, He is God.
We need this humility to make the most of our walk with God. I am adding no value to God, He is adding every value to me. So serving God and the interest of His Kingdom
is absolutely for your benefit and my benefit. Until you can see that, you may think that somebody is using you, somebody is harassing, somebody is trying to play on your intelligence.
When you see that whether I am born again or ‘dead’ again, God is God.
Whether I am in Church or in a shrine, God is still God.
Whether I am in Church or in a cult, God is still God.
Whether you insult Him or praise Him, He is God.
He is the I AM THAT I AM – Exodus 3:14
Ever constant, eternal constant. Your reaction, your action: it’s your cup of tea, it doesn’t touch God.
Serving God is absolutely for my benefit, I am the one benefitting, not God.
One of the cardinal ways we serve His eternal purpose for mankind is their salvation. So going after souls is the covenant capital proof of our love for God.
Why do I call it capital? 3 times, Jesus asked Simon, “lovest thou Me more than these?”
They are not in Church, everybody is ordained for eternal life. Go bring them.
Some are born again, they have been lost again: so you have to go and look for them. You have a hundred sheep, then 1 is missing, you have to leave the 99 and go and look for them.
The sheep are the ones who were once born again and have now been lost again, so we have to go and look for them.
There is no argument, prove that you do by going after my sheep.
Capital proof. Giving is a proof that you love God, this is a capital proof. It is a 3-fold proof that you love Him. 3 times proof that you love Him.
Our passion for souls is a capital proof of our love for God. I got into this holy marriage with Jesus 46 years ago, by a definite covenant, mysteriously signed up in a Church.
My wife and I went to that Church with the Holy Ghost Himself present. We were the only 2 human beings there, when she signed to join me in this madness.
I have never begged, yet I had nothing to give in terms of money, but my love for God just took over every aspect of my life, with such unbelievable favour running in from everywhere.
You know why I know I was so supplied for? I didn’t borrow from anybody. I never went hungry once.
Proverbs 23:26 – My son give Me your heart, let Me settle your life. Give Me your heart and I will settle your life.
What are the benefits of being in love with God?
1. All things work together for good to them that love God and who are serving His purpose as a way of life – Romans 8:28
2. He reveals all things to you – John 15:15
When you are in love, you are open to unlimited access to revelation. Unlimited.
“All things I have heard of My Father” and what is revelation, it is God’s turnaround strategy, God’s turnaround weapon. “Arise, shine, your light is come” – Isaiah 60:1
3. You are on the go for God, you are in partnership with Him and if God be for us, who can be against us? – Romans 8:31
You enjoy partnership with Jesus by being in love for Him, in pursuit after the lost souls.
He sent them to go, to places where He Himself will come. When you are on the go for Jesus, He gets into partnership with you, that makes you unstoppable.
They came and said, “Even devils were subject to us in Your name” – Luke 10:17
I was not surprised, I was there with you, how will devils not fall down?
Being on the go for Jesus gets you into partnership with Jesus and if God be for us, who can be against us? – Romans 8:31
When He handed the great Commission, He said, “Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world” – Matthew 28:20
There is a partnership pact that comes along with going with Jesus.
“With you always, even to the end of the world” – Matthew 28:20
The Holy Ghost comes to make us effective witness of Christ. So when we engage with that task, He said, “He will dwell in you and abide in you forever” – Acts 1:8, John 14:16
John 14:17 – That is why you tread upon serpents and over all the powers of the enemy and nothing shall be any means hurt you, because the force at work in you makes you unhurtable and it is there forever.
Please get in love with Jesus.
Prove that you do by going after God’s greatest interest on the earth, the salvation of mankind. Let it be burning in your soul, in terms of praying
Kingdom advancement prayer; inviting people, compelling them to come to Jesus, to Church who will save the unsaved among them and rescue those who are bound among them.
Engage with it in carrying people on your shoulders, get them down to Church. Build Kingdom dreams around your life.
This thing works like fire. I have proved it; many have proved it in this Church and have found it to so: This thing works!!!
You can’t make God first and be last. This thing works. Where you place Him determines where He places you. This thing works.
Make Him last: then you are last in His agenda.
Make Him first: then you are first in His agenda.
This thing works. I have entered into places in my life, that Matthew 6:33 took me there, nothing else.
This thing works.
-May no one waste his adventure on earth and may you not just discover it on time, but plug in on time, before it becomes too late.
I said humorously last Sunday (13th March 2022), “do we need to hire buses in this Church, if every believer believes in the dignity of the saints?”
You can get into business, transportation business, then turn in the vehicles on Sunday to carry people. We have to pray for some of those buses that we hire.
Some of them are half alive. These are things. Kingdom dreams!!
Before I had any bank account, I have been dreaming of building Churches, not contributing to building Churches. Building Churches!
“Lord, if you ever bless me, I want to be building Churches.” I wasn’t in ministry. I wasn’t; but seeing batchers everywhere: this does not represent Kingdom, “Lord, if you ever bless me,
ever bless me, in my life.”
Build Kingdom dream to show that you love Him.
-You are going to see God opening new chapters to your life, the kind you have never imagined, in the name of Jesus.
Your love demands your time, your energy, your resources and your undying passion for God and for the interest of His Kingdom.
Serving God in truth puts you naturally in command of the supernatural
“These signs shall follow them that believe” – Mark 16:17
It follows you as you go about your Father’s business. It doesn’t follow people sitting down. Nothing can follow you sitting you, they can only follow you going out.
You are going and then they are following. Nothing can follow a man sitting down. Things follow those on the Go.
Command of the supernatural is the heritage of those who are in pursuit of God and the interest of His Kingdom.
“They went forth and God also working with them confirming the Word with signs following” – Mark 16:20
That is the way it works.
You are not in command of signs as a magician.
Signs are in your command as you go after your Father’s business.
You should know that I am enjoying what I am doing. You should know that. If you pick any message and I am not laughing there, go and throw it away.
I have been laughing like this all these years and I am enjoying it: inside me, outside me.
Please join this thing ooo. Join on time. Don’t be part of the regret stories, “I wished I knew.” Join on time and watch how Jesus will recover your destiny in colour.
That person that had 200 Naira to come into the Year 2020, under global economic shutdown; then transformed in the midst of crisis and paying tithes in 6 digits (documented testimony).
-You are next in line for a dramatic change of story.
Prayers: Ask God for grace to remain in love with Him and to constantly prove it by going after the lost; praying to see them recovered; ensuring they are established in Church, so they can be taught
the ways of life and live a life of fulfillment in the name of Jesus.
Pray that prayer earnestly.
Things never heard of, are about to start happening in your life. In the name of Jesus. Thank You Father, blessed be Your name, in Jesus precious name.
You know it was never heard that a Church will stand to build a 50,000-seat sanctuary. No. Never heard, but He did, because there is nowhere on earth, our heart is permanently with Him.
It is never heard up till now that a Church will build a Sanctuary of 100,000. Things never heard.
Not that we are looking for it, He is just adding it. He said, “I will add them to you.”
Things never heard and then without stress. My God. Without foreign aid.
It doesn’t matter where you live, let your heart stand strong with Jesus.
-You are going somewhere.
We have never asked any member of this Church since the beginning, because you all met me here anyway, that “can you help this matter?” Not one person under Heaven, from Day 1 to
present Day and to forever Day, has ever been called specially, “Can you please assist?”
No government functionary has ever been called Sir.
No great ministry outside and I am blessed to be connected to many of them has ever been called. Not one.
God is up to anything He says. He simply creates it.
Please let Him have your heart.
“I don’t know what else to do”: Let Him have your heart. Not just looking at me. Let Him have your heart.
You can’t use my leg to run and win a race. You need your own leg to win your prize in your race.
The ball is in your court, do what you please with it.
