SINGLE LADIES: DON’T MARRY A MAN THAT DOES NOT HAVE SOMEBODY HE LISTENS TO.
IF HE TELLS YOU “I LOVE YOU BUT I DON’T LISTEN TO ANYBODY. YOU ARE THE ONE THAT I LISTEN TO”: HE IS A ‘LIE, LIE’ LOVER.
MAYBE YOU HAVE BEEN SAYING, “LORD, INSTRUCT ME THIS YEAR”: THIS IS THE INSTRUCTION, THIS IS THE FIRST.
IF THE FIRST IS SET APART, NOTHING CAN TOUCH THE REST
WHEN YOU GIVE GOD HIS PLACE, YOU WILL NEVER BE OUT OF PLACE.
INSTRUCTIONS ARE DESIGNED TO SAVE YOU FROM DESTRUCTIONS.

Evening Session, Day 2
Don’t listen to nonentities – Psalm 1:1
Please don’t be scared, trust God.
Ezekiel 48:14 (NKJV)
What we call holy is purity. Holy (in Ezekiel 48:14) means set apart. You know that plate that you couldn’t eat with is for Daddy, that spoon you couldn’t use, that is holy. It is set apart. Something should be set apart in your life, that this one, ‘I no fit touch am’ (I can’t touch it), it’s for God.
If (on) the first, Pastor says, “this year you don’t do it”, you are waiting for the next time. But if the first is set apart, the rest nothing can touch it.
Again, I am not talking to everybody, just in case you have been saying, “Lord, instruct me this year”: this is the instruction, this is the first.
When you give God His place, you will never be out of place.
Don’t take His place in your life.
I want to ask you a question as I close. Did you gain something? Did you enjoy it or you endured it?
Please you may not answer this question, you may not give me an answer, but think about it: What did Saul do compared to David?
David killed ‘sotay’ God said, “your hands are full of blood, please don’t build a house.”
What did Saul do compared to David? God just told him, “I have chosen you to be king, you are going to fight the Amalekites, please everything you get there, burn it.” God didn’t tell him food, maybe it wasn’t written in the Bible: that is your first battle as a king. Burn everything.
One of the things that happened to Israel is something called Triumph bases when a king went to fight: Maybe from Abuja here, they went to fight in Kaduna. In those days, (when) the King went to war, after conquering Kaduna, we would take the king of Kaduna, naked him, put him on the chariot, he has been collecting tribute from us: to show our citizens that I am a real king, we would strip him naked and put him on a chariot and bring him here. A dispatch rider would have gone ahead of him to say, “I am coming.” They would be all over Kubwa with the flag of our State, hailing me, shouting. As I am coming in some of the gold, things that I took from that place, I would be spraying to them. People would be taking money. They call it triumph bases.
I expect you to understand why Saul did what He did. Israel had told God, “we want to have kings like other nations”, that was why they brought him in. Then how do you now expect Saul, to go to his first battle, on the first day they ordained, the sons of Belial said, “can this one save Israel?”
“Then I will now go and burn everything. I won’t come home with triumph bases?”
Somebody advised him, you want to be popular, don’t do this ooo. Take the fat one, let’s go and sacrifice it to God. He listened to the people and God said, “You did that, you touched the first? I am not in anymore.”
Samuel was even talking to God, at some point, God just told Samuel, “don’t talk to me about Saul again.”
Just look at your neighbour if they are sleeping, shake your head, “Ahh, I pity you.”
In the morning, you will sleep.
In the evening, you will sleep, ‘when you dey dey awake’ (when are you awake?). When we start dancing now, “na their dance go…”
Anyway, I believe what Bishop Oyedepo believes, as I am preaching, you are sleeping, the Word is resting on you. The dew of heaven is upon you.
Prayers: From now, covenant will work for you.
I have told you God’s mind – Matthew 7:24
-I prophesy to you, when wind comes, when storm comes, you will stand. Your fall will not be great. You will stand out.
-I prophesy to you that you will be the head and not the tail. Therefore, go and be the first. Go and enjoy God’s best. God will use you to advertise His power.
-The last time you spent months in struggles will be the last time you will do that.
I have seen examples in this Church, how God will take somebody from the back and put him forward. We had Leaders meeting here yesterday and we ended up crying here when some people were sharing testimonies. I cried like a baby. Somethings that I didn’t even know happened to some people, you know some people don’t even share testimonies. People who were nobody, just came in and started to follow: boom.
Somebody lost his admission, they threw him out of school, 2 years and he was planning to do fake result. If I mention who the brother is, he is like Holy Ghost now, you will never believe, he has gone into that. I was hearing his story for the first time. He wanted to see me in Ilorin, he couldn’t see me. They took him to Mummy Dee (Pastor Modele Fatoyinbo), Mummy Dee said, “go back to that School.” When he went back, they collated his results and found out that other departments didn’t send the proper results. He had been out of School for 2 years. They told him, “go and start back from 200 Level.” It was a life saver. Today, he is a graduate, he is doing so well in Christ Jesus, you will not even believe he has been through that stuff.
This morning, a brother met me. He lost his job, they threw him out and he came to me. I said, “wow. Don’t say anything rubbish about your boss. Don’t say it, keep quiet. Go greet him.”
I said, “Go.” When he went there, the boss was so touched. He just told him, “you are travelling with me” and handed over a major project to him. He told me this morning. He said, “the money my boss gave to me this December, I had never received that before. I could pay my rent, my car.” He was mentioning several things.
At an instruction!
Instructions are designed to save you from destructions.
They are actually the highway to success – Matthew 7:24
Ladies, listen to me, if you are not married, don’t marry a man that does not have somebody he listens to.
“I love you but I don’t listen to anybody. You are the one that I listen to”: lie, lie lover. I know these things.
Prayers: Lord, teach me what to do. You have spoken general words, speak to me now.
Be expecting for him to speak to you. Get your notes ready. Anything He tells you, write it down. If He doesn’t speak to you now, in your dream, He will speak to you. Before you wake up, He is going to speak to you, but be expecting.
Give me a specific instruction. Lord, show me what to do.
It is the Word you speak to me that are spirit and life, speak to me.
