SUPER MEGA CHURCHES WILL CONTINUE RISING UNTIL THERE IS NOBODY ON THE STREETS DURING SERVICES
ALL GREAT MINISTRIES STARTED LITTLE. THERE IS NEED FOR PATIENCE OF FAITH.
WHEN MY TIME COMES, I AM GOING TO HEAVEN EMPTY BECAUSE I HAVE EMPTIED MYSELF
MANY ARE CELEBRATING VISION WITHOUT RUNNING WITH IT. VISION IS LIKE A BUILDING MODEL; YOU CANNOT LIVE INSIDE IT.
MANY SAY I AM LUCKY.
MY LUCK INCLUDES NO HONEYMOON AND NOT BEING OUTSIDE THIS CHURCH MORE THAN 3 TIMES ON SUNDAY SINCE 1999. COME AND SHARE IN THAT LUCK!
NO EXCUSE FOR ANY VISIONARY TO SIT DOWN WITH HIS LEGS CROSSED AND EXPECT TO SEE THE VISION COME TO PASS.
– Bishop David Oyedepo at Church Growth Conference, 2022.
– I see super mega Churches rising everywhere, until there is no more person on the street when service is going on in the name of Jesus!
So, He may choose to appear to you and to me in raw vision or He expects you to locate His plan and purpose from His book – same. In fact, this one is surer, because it’s the more sure Word (2 Peter 1:19).
– To God be all the praise!
Every of God’s agenda speaks to the future… “at the end, it shall speak…” This is my plan, my purpose, but I am bringing you into the fullness of it at the end (Habakkuk 2:3). At the end, that’s where many people miss it; they want it now and gbam at the same time. No, it can kill you! “…at the end, it shall speak…” So, He takes us through it little by little. There is no great ministry that did not go through the little-by-little path – little by little by little and by little (Exodus 23:30, Deuteronomy 7:22).
So, we need the patience of faith to move into the fullness of God’s plan which has no end (Proverbs 4:18). We are ordained to move from glory to glory, shining more and more till He returns. So, please understand what I’m talking about because it will really help you.
When my time comes, I’m going to Heaven, I’ll go smiling. I’ve emptied the things He’s put in my heart and I’m saying it. God is faithful.
– Grace to stay on and begin to move from that realm of glory to another, receive it now in the name of Jesus!
No matter how bright the vision, you don’t run with it; it will never see the light of day (Habakkuk 2:2). Every vision demands a run for delivery. Let’s stop celebrating revelations and visions; let’s take responsibility. We don’t run with it; it will never see the light of day. Now, let me show you the importance of this; Jesus is the Living Word, He was given the Holy Spirit without measure but you need to watch Him as a runner.
If you watch His schedule, you’ll see a man on the run, from one place to another “arise, let us go…, Now let’s go over, let’s come down…” In fact, His friends thought that He was mad (Mark 5:21-23), they went to go and look for Him, that He has not been eating because of the task.
They said maybe something is gone wrong. He was ministering to the woman at the well, He sent them to go and buy food, they were all hungry. They came back, He was very active. They said Sir, eat now. He said, I have a meat to eat, you don’t know anything about. Thomas said, somebody has given Him food. “My meat is to do the will of Him that sent me and to finish His work (John 4:34). Vision is work.
God’s Word works but it only works for those who work it, therefore work out your own salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12). Every revelation caught, every vision encountered is a spiritual seed but until you cultivate and plant it; it will remain the same.
It’s just like building a model of a building, is that equal to the building? No, that’s where the work starts. Vision is the beginning of pursuit; you begin to translate that model into a building where you can live in. Now, we are satisfied with the model, we are just celebrating the model; “my God, have you seen the model? Fantastic!” So, pack in there!
Jesus the Living Word was a runner, anointed without measure, He was a runner. No excuse for any visionary to sit down with his legs crossed and expect to see the vision come to pass.
That’s where many of us miss it; “God said it, I believe it, that settled it.” It’s not settled! I’m not that extraordinary runner but I’ve not been on leave since I got on this race.
“Ha, Papa is very lucky”
“Come and share my luck. It’s available”
You need to share my luck; I could not afford the luxury of honeymoon after marriage; you need to share my luck. It’s a lucky thing!
Have I been out of this Church now more than three times since we moved in here 1999? Share that luck.
There was a night I slept in two countries before I got home. Amen!
You are not a runner; it will never happen. Write the vision, stage one. Understand what you wrote, stage two. Now, pick race and keep believing till you see it delivered. Because God tempts no one with evil, He will never ask you to do what He has not enabled you to do. He gives you vision, He is giving you the where wither to take delivery of it if you are interested; if you are ready to give it what it takes.
Show me your faith without your works and I’ll show you my faith by my works (James 2:18). The Word does not work for those who preach it; it works for those who do it. It doesn’t work for those who claim it; it’s illegal to claim harvest from a field you have not planted.
It doesn’t work for those who confess it; it works for those who profess it. Holding fast to the profession of your faith, not confession. Somebody can preach church growth from now till tomorrow, if he doesn’t do what it takes to grow a church, it will not grow. You can preach prosperity and then they want to lick your mouth because your revelation is too deep and you can be suffering deep poverty at the same time. It doesn’t work for those who preach it; it works for those who do it (Luke 6:46).
– Somebody’s story is changing!
If you are not ready for a run, forget it. You will just be telling a story of when God spoke to you but you can show whatever happen afterwards. I therefore believe in the name of Jesus, that today will mark a new day!
