ON MARCH 22ND 1982, I HAD A HEAVY VISITATION FROM JESUS ON MY FINANCIAL PROSPERITY, BUT IT WASN’T DELIVERED IMMEDIATELY.
IN 1986, I WAS STILL BELIEVING GOD FOR 500 NAIRA AND TESTIFYING OF 1000 NAIRA A WEEK IN 1989.
THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THE ENTIRE CHURCH WAS BELIEVING GOD FOR 3,000 NAIRA TO PAY CHURCH FACILITIES. NOW ARE WE STILL THERE?
ALL THIS HIT AND RUN WON’T TAKE YOU ANYWHERE.
FAITH DELIVERS WITH PATIENCE. PATIENCE IS NOT TIME, YOU WILL REAP IT IN DUE SEASON, IF YOU FAINT NOT. YOU FAINT, YOU FAIL
-Bishop David Oyedepo at 1st Service, Faith Tabernacle
Special Anointing Service
Give God thanks for the privilege to be in His Presence…Lord Jesus, thank You again for another opportunity to be right here at Your feet to receive of You. Let no one return disappointed today. Grant every worshipper today an encounter of a lifetime. Let the mystery of the Anointing Oil speak in the favour of everyone here. Let all those hooked up unto us across the nations of the earth receive the same order of blessings, in the precious name of Jesus. Thank You Father.
Isaiah 10:27 – It shall come to pass in that day.
-I believe for many who are here, today is that day.
-Today is that day for you.
-Every burden of the wicked that is weighing your life down shall be taken away today.
-Every yoke of the devil that is choking your life in one area or another shall be destroyed today.
In the name of Jesus Christ and so shall it be.
Our Teaching Series for the month for our Sunday Services is captioned:
UNVEILING THE WONDERS IN THE WORD
This suggests that the Word is pregnant with wonders. The Psalmist prayed, “open thou mine eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law” – Psalm 119:18
So God’s Word is loaded with wondrous things, things that make men to wonder. One of the wonders in the Word is the mystery of the Anointing Oil.
Habakkuk 3:4 – God’s power is hidden in His Word. The hiding place of His power. God’s power is hidden in His Word, that is why we need our eyes to be opened to be able to see the wondrous things from His Word. We live in a Kingdom that is governed by mysteries – Mark 4:11
There are mere stories to them, but the gospel is the power of God to everyone that believes -Romans 1:16
-May the power hidden in the mystery of the Anointing Oil be unleashed on everyone’s life today.
The holy anointing oil is one of the mysteries of the Kingdom for the liberation of believers from all satanic strongholds – Isaiah 10:27
Every yoke is destructible but it takes the power of God to see them destroyed.
-Today whatever the enemy has held bound in your life shall be destroyed finally.
It’s interesting to know that God Himself initiated the mystery of the anointing oil – Exodus 30:23-31
Every child of God is redeemed a king and a priest to reign on the earth. Its effect is transgenerational. It’s not for a reason, it’s all through the generations of life, so we saw the Oil from that point on.
1 Samuel 10:1 – We saw the Oil in the hand of Samuel anointing Saul.
We saw the Oil on the head of Jehu – 2 Chronicles 22:7
We saw the Oil in the hand of Jesus – Mark 6:7, 12-13. He gave them the Oil and He called it power.
We saw it in the Apostolic ministry – James 5:14-15
It’s for all generations of God’s people. The effect, the potency is transgenerational, it is not Old Testament phenomenon, it is ever current, ever potent.
-Today you will experience the raw power of God as transmitted via the mystery of the Anointing Oil.
It’s a forever ordinance – Ecclesiastes 3:14, Exodus 30:31.
Let’s examine 12 wonders in the holy anointing oil. Let’s first recognize that signs and wonders are only accessible through faith. Without faith, you cannot experience the wonders of God in your life – Luke 1:45.
What you don’t believe is never performed in your life. “If you will not believe”, He said, “surely you will not be established” – Isaiah 7:9. No Word is confirmed outside of faith and every miracle is a confirmation of the Word that we receive and believe. No matter the depth of teachings, what we do not believe, we are not entitled to experience.
There is nothing God cannot do through His Word but He will only do what Your faith permits Him to do. There is no Word of God that is of no effect, but it takes your faith and my faith to make His Word effectual in our lives.
You don’t believe, He can’t perform. I don’t believe, He can’t perform. That is very important.
Jesus marvelled at their unbelief in Nazareth.
The most anointed that had ever walked the planet Earth, He was given the Holy Ghost without measure. His wonders could not be released – Mark 6:5-6.
The One who raised the dead after 4 days, they could not receive Him, they could not believe Him so He could not perform. Listen to me, no Apostle can believe for you, the just shall live by his faith – Habakkuk 2:4
No prophet can believe for you, as much as Christ could not believe for them, forget it.
So you need your faith to take delivery of your own portion in the Kingdom.
Everybody needs his faith. I can’t believe for you to be saved. You have to believe. You don’t believe, you can’t be saved, otherwise we won’t have any business preaching around.
You are presenting opportunity to people that look there is a better life on this side, do you believe? He says, “no, forget it. Get off my sight.”
You can’t force a man to be saved, you can’t force a man to be healed. It takes your faith to be saved, it takes your faith to be healed. Otherwise, one can sit down in a Church and just be there forever and say, “it is not working.” Why? Because your faith is out of place. Nothing works in the Kingdom outside the faith of individuals. The just shall live by his faith. I can’t give you my heart to breathe, so when someone passes on, all the ones around them have their hearts pumping. Why don’t you give point something of your heart and the other one gives point something”; he keeps living. No.
You need your heart to stay alive. The same way, you need your faith, I need my faith to stay alive in Christ. No matter the unfolding of the mystery, without your faith, it will not deliver.
Some fellows don’t believe no testimonies, so they can’t have testimonies.
“How can a child be in the womb for 48 months?” (documented testimony). Ask the woman.
Now listen, what you write is not equal to faith, is not equal to what you preach. What you preach and you don’t believe will not deliver in your life. Somebody else’s life is turned around through your preaching, yet it is not turning you. I mean it is a very sensitive area.
The just shall live absolutely by his faith. It is repeated 4 times to let you know the importance of it – Habakkuk 2:4, Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11, Hebrews 10:38
“It is not working, it is not working”: Because you are not working.
“I have been here for so long”: Thank you for history, didn’t you hear that the just shall live by faith.
Build your faith and damn the devil – Ephesians 6:16
We have this siege of unbelief tormenting many believers. In fact, the Bible calls it the evil heart of unbelief, the devil is responsible for it – Hebrews 3:12. He blocks the heart of people against believing the truth so he can rob them of their best in life, rob them of their victory, rob them of their healing, rob them of everything.
-But this morning, that yoke of unbelief shall be destroyed in anyone’s life.
Somebody began to walk in financial covenant and after 2 years: “It is not working!” Do you know with that heavy visitation that I had, 1986 I was believing God for 500 Naira? All this hit and run won’t take you anywhere. Faith delivers with patience. Patience is not time, you will reap it in due season, if you faint not. You faint, you fail – Galatians 6:9
I had a visitation of Jesus, raw, March 22nd 1982. I was believing God for 500 Naira 1986 and testifying of 1000 Naira a week 1989. Wake up!!
That is what makes it work.
Now our Church, the entire Church was believing God for 3,000 Naira to pay Church facilities. Now are we still there? Forget it!! By consistency of faith. Faith with patience will always deliver wonders.
-Today, I curse every siege of unbelief in your heart.
“It is not working” – Yet people are testifying every day.
-Today, your testimony must emerge.
-Today, your long-awaited testimony must be made manifest.
Say with me, “unbelief is evil.”
-Therefore, I see God take away from everyone of us today a stony heart and give us a heart of flesh in its place – Ezekiel 11:19-20
1 Samuel 10:9 – God gave him another heart, the heart of faith and all those signs came to pass that day.
-I pray for everyone under the sound of my voice today, for another heart.
Hebrews 4:2 – “…not being mixed with faith in them, in their heart.”
