THE ONLY TIME GOD CALLED ME BOY IN MY LIFE WAS WHEN I WAS ABOUT TO PROPOSE TO SOMEBODY ELSE FOR MARRIAGE: BOY YOU ARE WRONG!!!
…YOUR MARRIAGE IS OFF THAT FREQUENCY OF FOR BETTER FOR WORSE.!!!
GOD MAY NOT ANSWER YOU THE DAY YOU ARE ASKING HIM BUT WATCH OUT FOR HIS ANSWER, HE ALWAYS ANSWERS BY A VOICE.
GOD DICTATED TO ME THE 7 CONCEPTS OF HITCH FREE MARRIAGE IN A PUBLIC VEHICLE:
GOD TOLD ME: “I HAVE NOT ORDAINED MARRIAGE FOR BETTER AND FOR WORSE.
I WASN’T THE ONE. RELIGIOUS PEOPLE DID THAT.
MY ORDINATION FOR MARRIAGE IS THAT TWO ARE BETTER THAN ONE.”
I HAVE NEVER SEEN A TEMPTATION TO BORROW. I JUST ENJOY CONTENTMENT AT EVERY POINT OF MY LIFE WITH EXCITEMENT. THERE IS NO SELF-PITY

Shiloh 2021: More Than A Conqueror
Interestingly, let’s go down to John 10:3-4
-Lord, give me an experience of You calling me by name.
How many want to hear that? That is how to personalize His instructions, His counsel: He wants to know that I am the One speaking and I am speaking not to the air, I am speaking to you, because you hear your name.
There was only one time, God called me, “Boy”; at all other times, “My son, David.”
When I was going off His agenda for my life, to propose to somebody else, “Boy, you are wrong” and He has the right to. We were told, “He is Your Father, He is My Father.”
At every other time, with that His baritone that I am used to over the years, “My son, even if you don’t want to be rich, it’s too late.” Sworn blessing!
There are things that you do that brings upon your life a sworn blessing. Sworn blessing!
“My son, my prosperity plan is not a promise” … “My son” and He calls it, “My son, David” – no mistake.
-From this Shiloh onwards, God will be calling you by your name.
If I have any problem with anything, not with where I am now by grace. It’s no guess work, it’s by definite instructions, definite commandments, no guess work.
I didn’t feel sorry once for coming to this place. I didn’t work over night. No. The first Sunday here, we didn’t fill this arm, but we (were) scattered over this arm. You know what it means to scatter, we (were) scattered over this arm because there were pews there.
I said, “let everybody come down here, there is no point scattering”; I said, “as the Lord liveth, we will be starting second Service any moment.” No confusion, no “are we right?”
-You will never take any regrettable steps in your life.
-You will never run another man’s race in your life.
-You will remain on course all the days of your life.
Let me by reminder, any time we stop, we stop: Nothing destroys doubt like access to the voice of God!
His voice is powerful. His voice is full of majesty. His voice breaks even the cedars, the hardest of cedars, the cedars of Lebanon – Psalm 29:4-6
Nothing destroys a believer like lack of access to that voice: stagnates, frustrates, can be devastating.
You didn’t know what God is saying, then you follow into troubles and challenges.
-That will not be you anymore.
Counsel from 10,000 Apostles will never match God’s direct directions because the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand – Psalm 33:11, Isaiah
-You won’t miss access to His counsel anymore.
“I can of my own self do nothing and see the proofs…As my Father has sent Me, so send I you” – John 20:21
-You won’t stop hearing from Him anymore.
His voice is behind His Word – Psalm 29:3-5, Isaiah 55:1, 11. God’s Word is defined as the waters, whatever you find there shall not come back void, it shall accomplish that which I purpose – Isaiah 55:11. The voice of God is upon the waters. Every verse of scriptures carries God’s voice behind it.
The voice of God is behind every statement of scriptures.
I was in Daniel chapter 11 verse 32 in 1981, “those who do know their God, they shall be strong and they shall do exploits.”
He (God) said: you don’t need to know any man to scale the highest height. Just know Me.” Direct.
later on I read about Paul saying, “I know no man after the flesh”, but I heard it from Him – 2 Corinthians 5:16
To scale the utmost height in life: you don’t need to know no man, just know me. My God, it was an intoxicant, because limited or vain is the help of man.
When a man takes you, he can only take you to how far his hand can go, but when the everlasting arm of God takes you from the far, far behind, He throws you up to the highest height and His name is the Most High and His hand is higher than Him.
Every man’s hand is higher than him, true or false? So when He throws that everlasting arm to the Prison, He picks the prisoner out to the Palace.
Psalm 60:11, Jeremiah 17:5-6
The Almighty thunders behind His Word, unspeakable sound behind His Word.
We got into the privileged mystery of hitch free marriage by heaven’s dictate. I was asking God, He may not answer you the day you are asking Him but watch out for His answer, He always answers by a voice to establish His covenant with His people.
“I have not ordained marriage for better and for worse. I wasn’t the One, religious people did that. My ordination for marriage is that two are better than one and they have a good reward for their labour” – Ecclesiastes 4:9, Deuteronomy 32:30
I was looking for paper that I could write it on, because He was dictating the answers to the prayers I had been praying and the books I had been reading to me in a public vehicle: “Please, please, do you have any paper, as if there was a danger happening.” He dictated to me the 7 concepts of marriage. I never read that in all the 8 books I read and I stood up from that place with a declaration, “Set for hitch free marriage.”
He always answers by His thunderous voice behind His Word.
-Your marriage is off that frequency of ‘For better for worse’.
-Every challenged home today, every separated family, I decree peace be still.
-For every divorce which the devil orchestrated, I decree supernatural restoration.
His voice thunders, His instructions are through the channel of a still small voice. But behind is a thundering
“But thou shall not borrow, I am talking to you”: it was too strong to ignore, I entered into a covenant right there and then.
I said: Why Lord? The borrower is servant to the lender, you cannot serve two masters – Proverbs 22:7, Matthew 6:24
I said: I choose You My God and I despise the lender for life.
I have never seen a temptation to borrow. I just enjoy contentment at every of my life with excitement. There is no self-pity, with utmost excitement. I enjoy God’s grace at every point of my life with rejoicing.
His voice thunders behind His Word, access to His voice destroys doubt.
When you open your Bible to read, await the news from the Father – Isaiah 34:16
TO HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD
1. Engage the altar of the prayer of inquiries – Jeremiah 33:3, 2 Samuel 5:18-20
– Only those who ask questions are entitled to answers. 1 Samuel 30:6-9
2. Be committed to walking in the Spirit. – Revelation 1:10, Galatians 5:25
3. Be committed to a lifestyle of praise – Isaiah 30:30, Philippians 4:4
– Rejoicing is a requirement for you to remain on course with God.
Hearing from God is not a gift, it is a birthright.
