THE COMMANDMENT TO COME TO THIS FOREST WAS HARSH BUT HE TOLD ME THE WHOLE WORLD WILL BECOME OUR PARISH.
TODAY THERE IS NO MAN THAT CAN HEAR THAT HAS NOT HEARD OF WINNERS AROUND THE GLOBE
STOP SEEING GOD AND HIS WORD AS A BURDEN, EVERY COMMANDMENT IS ORDAINED TO ADD VALUE TO OUR LIVES.
YOU CAN’T ATTRACT WHAT TITHING ATTRACTS WITHOUT BEING A TITHER.
WHEN YOU DON’T SUBSCRIBE TO HIS INSTRUCTIONS YOU HAVE UNCONSCIOUSLY SUBSCRIBED TO DESTRUCTION
YOU MIGHT PREACH AND PEOPLE ARE SHOUTING BUT IF YOU DON’T DO THE WORD IT WILL NEVER WORK FOR YOU.

  • Bishop David Oyedepo at Week of Spiritual Emphasis, Day 3
    We saw how Joshua obeyed all the commandments and not one of the prophecies concerning Israel failed. He just obeyed it all and God confirmed it all (Joshua 11:15, 21:45). You can’t obey all and God not confirm all.

There is no greater breakthrough power than obedience.

Obedience is the master key to the land of breakthroughs. How do I know? “get thee out of thy country to a land I will show you” Abraham departed and all we keep seeing is breakthrough upon breakthrough upon breakthrough. Simple obedience – Strange order of breakthrough. “Arise” he told me “Get down to Lagos” so we came down and he backed us with His word and we saw strange things out there in Lagos and then a very harsh commandment, “get down to this forest and as you pastor this one church, the world would be your parish”. Is it not so today? No adjustment, no amendment.

Receiving, believing and obeying the instruction of the Word is what makes it work. The World will not work without you and I receiving it, believing it and obeying it.
James 1:22-25.

The blessing of the word is for those who are doers of the word, not for those who are quoting the word or preaching the word. It’s not for leaders of ministry or leaders of groups, it’s for those who are doers of the word.

The world works only for doers, not for preachers, not for teachers. You can’t access what soul winning attracts without winning souls.

You can’t access what tithing attracts without been a tither. The taste of the pudding is in the eating, you can’t take it without working it.

That is where many founders of ministries are stranded. You think you can just preach the word and people will be shouting, you are just an entertainer.

The word will never work for anyone who is not a doer. We see it all around, it works only for the obedient.

  • You will not miss your mark in the name of Jesus.
    What is it that makes obedience work?
  1. Obedience of faith
    (Exodus 14:14-15, Hebrews 11:29).
    When you obey in faith, you manifest divine presence which no obstacle can withstand.
    Psalm 114:1-7
    Obedience of faith commands divine presence which clears all barriers on our path. We are told in Hebrews 11:30 that through faith, the walls of Jericho fell down flat. The walls sank.
  2. Unquestionable Obedience
    Can you imagine Gideon, 32000 people volunteered to go for war and God said this is too many for me, tell them if any of them is scared let them go back and 22,000 went back.

That is enough to stir fear but God said they are still too many for me. God said test them and out of that 9700 failed the test and only 300 remained.

One of the very committed elders said to me, “what about those of us senior citizens that don’t have means of mobility, since we are no longer doing church in the old church in town”. I said “that means our ministry with them is over, they can cross over to any church around and stay there until Jesus comes”. Unquestionable obedience, not open this door and open that door.

A double minded man is unstable in all His ways let him not expect to receive anything from God. You would have failed there and failed here for questioning God’s commandment. “This is the place” “Yes Sir”, “pastor this one church and the whole world will be your parish” “Yes Sir” and now see how God has taken Lagos and Ota by storm. There is no man that can hear that has not heard Winners in this nation and around the globe. God never lies. Stop questioning God, God wants to turn your question mark to exclamation mark.
Judges 7:17-21
From 32,000 armed men to 300 men who are holding trumpets and pitchers and they commanded the victory. Stop questioning God, you have no power over Him.

He is not your errand boy. Choose to obey and watch what he does with your life.
Deuteronomy 5:32-33

I got that gift September 13th 1990 I was in Ontario, Canada then. Don’t bend my commandment, make straight paths in the kingdom. Any commandment you don’t obey you can not attract the blessing therein. When you don’t subscribe to His instructions you have unconsciously subscribed to destruction. (Proverbs 4:13).

  1. Cheerful Obedience
    You must stop seeing any commandment as a burden or you have created an unwanted situation in your life. See every commandment as a privilege for your change of story and plug in.
    Jeremiah 23:35 – 40
    Stop seeing God and His word as a burden every commandment is ordained to add value to you and me. Stop seeing God’s Word as a burden and you will see Him lifting all the burdens in your life. In 1977, I had this gift from Deuteronomy 28:47&48.

One early morning, while I was studying the word. Serving God is not enough, serving with joy and gladness of heart. Don’t say “I am happy, only you don’t know” No! A cheerful heart makes a cheerful countenance. You can’t be happy inside.

God is not a burden on anybody. Serving God can be destructive if you don’t serve with cheerfulness of heart. Only cheerful obedience counts.

  • Your story has just changed.
    This little things can make the difference in our lives. Remember Songs of Solomon 2:15. Take off the foxes, they spoil the vine.
    -In the name of Jesus your vine shall not be spoilt, no one here’s life shall be messed up
  • Your choice to obey God shall start working in your life.
  • your choice to obey individually, privately, publicly will change your story forever.
    The prosperity testimony of Kenneth Copeland called for my attention, I went to find out what he found and Jesus showed up and I connected in doing what the word of God says and it has never stopped working.

You have heard the word tonight, connect, obey, do it delightsomely and watch the Lord show up.

If anything came across to you tonight give God thanks for it. If you can see your greater and brighter tomorrow, give God thanks for it.

  • Before this month is over, you are testifying.
  • Your breakthrough testimony will be seen by all
  • Your change of position to line up with the word of God will change your life forever.
