GOD SHOWED ME THAT INDEBTEDNESS IS NOT FOR ME SO I ENTERED INTO A COVENANT WITH GOD NEVER TO BORROW
I HAVE RECEIVED INSTRUCTIONS FROM GOD AT DIFFERENT TIMES AND PROMPT RESPONSE HAS BEEN THE SECRET OF THE SUCCESSES
WHEN GOD SPEAKS THE WHOLE UNIVERSE ALIGNS TO ENSURE THAT WHAT HE SAYS COMES TO PASS
EVERY REVELATION, EVERY INSTRUCTION, EVERY VISION IS TIED TO TIME. WHEN YOU MISS THE APPOINTED TIME, IT IS GONE. WHEN THE APPOINTED TIME IS PAST, DISAPPOINTMENT SETS IN
TIME IS OF ESSENCE IN GETTING ANYTHING MEANING FULL DONE IN THE KINGDOM. TIMELINESS IS NEXT TO GODLINESS.
EVERY INSTRUCTION DELIVERS THE MOST WITH A TIMELY AND PROMPT RESPONSE.
EVERY EXPLANATION AGAINST INSTRUCTION IS GOING TO LEAD TO FRUSTRATION
– Bishop David Oyedepo
Day 15, Evening Session,
21 Days of Prayer and Fasting (10th to 30th January 2022) Communion Service
All of the shots we have been receiving at Covenant Hour of Prayer, the Morning Sessions and the Evening sessions all through this time are tools in our hand to work out our own access in God’s agenda for this Commision and for our own individual lives this year. They are not stories, they are instruments.
They are not illustrations, they are weapons of war. Please line up with them, there is no value in light that you will not walk in. It is walking in the light that brings value. You don’t put your torchlight in your pocket, it is doing you no good.
It has to be out there to enhance your value.
Don’t ever toy with anything that God is telling you right now in your personal prayers, they are the unveiling of what pertains to you in the year 2022.
Don’t just write them down, engage with them and you will be surprised the dimension of manifestations of His power you will see this year.
Prayers: Jesus speak to me again tonight, I want to hear from you. Help me to engage with the things that you teach, the corrections, the instructions, let this year be a most fruitful one in my life.
Let it be a year of reference indeed in my walk with you, in my health, in my family, in the works of my hand.
Our exhortation for the evening services is captioned: PROMPT RESPONSE COUNTS THE MOST IN OUR WALK WITH GOD.
We serve a God of times and seasons, when the planting season of any crop is over, it’s over until next time. We don’t have a next time here, there will only be 2022 once forever.
When the package for the year is over it becomes a carry over till whenever that is if ever such light will be shared again. It is spiritual shortsightedness that makes a believer think he has got it all.
No one will ever get it all while we walk here. Learning is a lifelong thing for a believer. 1 Corinthians 8:2. If I will ever be able to comprehend the things that He comprehends about me, it’s a lifelong adventure. The more light we catch, the brighter our life shines when we engage with such light. Every revelation, every instruction, every vision is tied to time. When you miss the appointed time, it is gone. When the appointed time is past, disappointment sets in. When you line up with His timing, the glory comes. Isaiah 60:1. Timeliness is godliness, He is a God of times and seasons.
Prompt response count the most in our walk with God. Every revelation, every instruction, every vision demands a dive for maximum delivery. Why? Because when God speaks, all of creation lines up for delivery. Go to the sea and cast the net, why? He has commanded a fish to carry coin in it’s mouth. If you don’t go, the coin will pass and you will be fishing to go and sell, a long process sets in.
Go to Jordan and the leprosy cleansing power of God went forth. That is no longer water, it’s medicated water. If he was busy speaking grammar and the power is withdrawn, whenever he goes he just goes there to swim. Bartimaeus only heard that Jesus was passing, he knew the appointed time for healing had come so he started shouting. Jesus heard, He stood still and said “Call him”. He met heaven’s timing.
– Your crown another man will not take.
You are angry with Him, He is God. You are happy with Him, He is God. Do anything you want, ‘I AM that I AM’ that is His name. What you do can’t change it, what you don’t do can’t change it. What you say or don’t say can’t change it. Anytime you are angry with God, you are angry with yourself. Your anger doesn’t change Him, it only affects you negatively. Please settle down with God, every instruction from heaven in His word is for your good. Any vision He shows is to brighten up your destiny. Any revelation you catch is to result in your next level elevation.
Every thing about the word is for our profit. Give yourself wholly to these things and do them promptly and watch the profit of it. Every instruction delivers the most with a timely and prompt response like in the case of our Father Abraham, “get thee out of thy country” (Genesis 12:1-4, 22:1-2, Prompt response is a lifelong demand to make the most of our journey on earth. If you are Abraham’s seed you better do the works of Abraham or you can’t access the blessings.
I had the following privilege in my walk with God. He opened my eyes and I saw that indebtedness is not His agenda for me, so I entered into a covenant of no borrowing October 4 1981. I dived into the water when He stirred it. “Lord show me secret of Kingdom prosperity”. He opened my eyes to realize it is not a promise, it has no respect for your fasting. It’s a covenant, until your part is played, I am not committed”. Now I have found it, I can never be poor. My journey into Kingdom prosperity began March 22, 1982. You don’t jump, the forces in that stirring will go and then you wait for another turn if it ever comes. I began pursuing after God and the interests of His kingdom under a vow, written and signed 12th September 1976. It’s a natural thing for me forever. I am not been supervised or coaxed, it has become part of my DNA and the blessings undeniable. Most of the things we just hear from God, we forget them because of delay to respond. Luke 8:1-8. If you need twelve souls, you go for forty eight. You don’t go for twelve when you need twelve, you give allowance to the one that will fall on the road side, the one that will be choked by thorns, the ones that on stony ground, but you are sure that some will fall on ground and bring forth fruits. It is a multiplier effect. Time is of essence in getting anything meaning full done in the Kingdom, time is of essence.
You have two eyes can you make one to look up and another to look down – September 6, 1983. From there I look only up at the never failing God, that is only where help comes from. His abundance is like abundance of the sea, you can’t drain it. Every revelation demands smart and prompt response. 18 hours – this is the mandate, I take off. Visions, revelations, instructions all demand prompt response for delivery.
– This last week of this fast will establish your new name for the year.
God is every constant, He is our eternal constant. It is our negative disposition that is affecting our lives that is affecting our lives. Instructions. We say we are not going on foreign mission and I got home and He said “you are going now!”. So I called the Head of Missions and told him we are going now, so the following people should meet me in Lagos, I will pray over them, anoint them and send them away. Quick response, as at that time He has lined up people who will receive them in Kenya, they were waiting.
A French woman in one of those nations saw in a vision, God telling her that some two missionaries are coming from Nigeria and they have nowhere to stay, go to the airport NEXT TOMORROW and accommodate them. Those things are lined up for that time, when that time is passed, you have missed. Isaiah 55:6
Therefore be someone that can be corrected, be someone that is meek enough to be directed. Be someone who will ask questions when they appear confused. All issues about your life and my life is tied to God’s time and season. Every explanation against instruction is going to lead to frustration.
Isaiah 55:6. Abraham never negotiated any instruction, any direction. This is very important that is why hearing from God and been able to differentiate between the voice of God and the voice of the stranger is vital in our work with God. Very vital. Many are pursuing visions today but it is the thoughts of their heart that they are pursuing.
We had sent our team to Jos for the takeoff of the ministry and we had a very wonderful commissioning service and I went to thank God on the mountain and He said “it was not me you heard about going to Jos. You heard yourself. You remember when you were playing table tennis in 1974, you desired in your heart that if you had a choice of where to live, Jos will be that choice”. He heard me, I never said it out. We couldn’t get house to rent, everything was tight. I came back from the mountain and I said “hey folks, we are not going to any Jos”. Allow God to lead you. He can’t lead you if He cannot correct you.
Someone is set on a journey that is a wrong journey, may you allow Him to redirect you. May God not abandon anyone of us, we have no access to tomorrow, only Him has.
– May God never abandon any of us to ourselves.
Prayers: Ask for help from above to respond promptly to every of Heaven’s institutions to you. Pray for that grace to be able to access God’s leading and respond promptly.
Have you seen any parent join their children in prison? If a son drugs himself to death, you don’t jump into the grave. No matter how much of a passionate mother you are. You are actually responsible for your response to heaven’s instructions in your life. Take it easy, you have no return ticket. You won’t scorn your God, He is always right.
Jesus never missed it once.
– By the power embedded in this communion, no one shall miss it again.
Prayers: I mustn’t miss it Jesus, whatever you gave shown me on this mountain, give me the grace to jump at them.
In 1986, we had just two weeks to the takeoff of Bible School and my wife asked out of concern, where will the students resume to? I said are you the owner of the School, the owner of the school knows where they will resume to. Then he opened my eyes on the spot and showed me a building and said that is where the Bjble school will be. I got up early in the morning and sent someone from the office to that building. The owner of the building was standing in front.
“Are you the owner of this building? He said No! Jesus is the owner I am the care taker. We need it for Bible school and he said it’s free. What if we left that to after council meeting, the man would have not been there, he would have travelled and other people will take it. We stayed there for free for three years.
– You won’t struggle any more to get results.
– Every sickness is cursed from the root.
– Strength to go through the remaining days effectively and fervently, receive it again.
