IF YOU INSULT ME, IT MEANS WHAT I AM DOING IS AFFECTING YOU.
IT IS EITHER IMPACTING IN YOUR LIFE POSITIVELY OR YOU ARE LOOKING FOR TROUBLE FOR YOURSELF.
I HAVE NEVER NEEDED ENCOURAGEMENT TO DO WHAT I AM DOING.
DON’T LIKE TO BE IMPORTANT, JUST FOLLOW THIS GOD. HE DEFINES YOUR GLORIOUS DESTINY PHASE BY PHASE.
SOME ARE DOWNCAST TODAY BECAUSE ALL THEY ARE LOOKING FOR IS NOT APPEARING REAL.
THERE ARE TOO MANY IDLE BELIEVERS: FULL OF TALKS, LITTLE OF ACTIONS IF AT ALL. THEY ARE IN EVERY SERVICE, BUT THEY WON’T DO ANYTHING.
IT’S TIME TO START WALKING IN THE LIGHT THAT COMES OUR WAY THROUGH THE WORD AND THROUGH TESTIMONIES.
THE YEAR 2022 SHALL BE A YEAR WITH A DIFFERENCE IN ALL AREAS OF OUR LIVES.

  • Bishop David Oyedepo at CHoP
    *The pursuit of things can be very damaging. Just pursue after God, you are going to get there.
    *Just keep doing what He says, He determines the end
    *We wait rejoicingly, we wait thankfully, we wait believingly. That is the only way to have it speak at the end.
    *You are not waiting mournfully, you are not waiting with disgust.
    *Give Him thanks for the things that don’t appear to be thankworthy. That is the only way they will be turned around.
    *That is the only way this story changer God is eager to reach out to you before these few hours are over.
    2013 to 2018, she waited steadfastly, consistently serving God (documented testimony of marital breakthrough). In a family of 9, they were perhaps given birth to any man.

She said, “No, I am set to see the hand of God in my life.” She waited patiently, consistently, steadfastly, serving God and God stepped in.

The husband to be, a Master’s degree holder and a PhD student was working as a cleaner and security, he stayed on. Now, sickness healed.

They just got married last year, their 4 children to come are covered by the new job he got until they are 18 years: that is scholarship from birth, until you are through with school. We serve a story changer God.

It is this off and on that has kept us at the same spot: off and on; off and on never makes headway.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Don’t just be entertained by testimonies, be instructed by them.
Prayers: Thank God for those testimonies and thank God for the instructions thereof.
7 days of prayer, fasting and midnight praise. What a recipe! Don’t just be entertained by this, be instructed by this.
Thank You Jesus for instructing me this morning on the wonders of engagement, consistency, steadfastness in my walk with You. Thank You heavenly Father, take all the glory.
Jesus, speak to me again this morning and let the Word of today result in a testimony in my life. Thank You Lord, in Jesus precious name we have prayed.
Hebrews 6:12
Nothing of value comes through free. Nothing of value ever comes through for free. Everything of value carries a cost and the cost for us in the Kingdom is obedience to the instructions of scriptures and the instructions from testimonies.
To the law (the Word) and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them – Isaiah 8:20
We receive instructions from the Word, we receive instructions from testimonies.
Psalm 119:111
Every testimony is a pointer to what God has reserved for you. If you are interested, then follow the steps they took, you arrive at the same level and the same dimension of testimony that they had.

There are too many idle people in the Kingdom. Too many idle believers, full of talks, little of actions if at all. They are in every Service, but they won’t do anything.
“Why call ye me Lord, Lord, without doing what I tell you to do?” – Luke 6:46
It’s time to start walking in the light that comes our way through the Word and through testimonies.

-The Year 2022 shall be a Year with a difference in all areas of our lives.
The line of exhortation has been:

AT THE END IT SHALL SPEAK

“Better is the end of a matter than the beginning thereof” – Ecclesiastes 7:8
At the end it shall speak.
Why are you bringing forth the best wine when men are already filled with drink?
At the end, the best of God’s agenda for your life will speak. At the end it shall speak.
Habakkuk 2:2-3
Write the vision, make it plain and go after it. At the end, it shall speak. Though it tarries, wait for it, for it shall surely come to pass. It shall not tarry.

It is the grace to stay on till the end of every phase of God’s agenda that makes the difference.
At the end it shall speak.
-You will never suffer any more setback in your life.
God is an ever forward leading God.
Pharoah’s army behind, the Red Sea in front, “What do we do?”
“Tell them to go forward” – Exodus 14:15
I don’t lead backward. Go forward!!
-You are stepping into your Year of ever going forward and never backward anymore.
Not just pressing to the end, but rejoicing all the way.
What? Rejoicing all the way, not let’s wait whatever God chooses to do, I am waiting.
Nothing will come, nothing will be there at the end.
Habakkuk 3:17-19
We wait rejoicingly, we wait thankfully, we wait believingly. That is the only way to have it speak at the end.
You are not waiting mournfully, you are not waiting with disgust.
Jesus who for the joy that He saw at the end, endured the cross, He despised the shame, hey I wished they know where I am heading for, it was too clear to Him. Now, He is set at the right hand of God today – Hebrews 12:2
Waiting with an assured tomorrow in view!
Not waiting, up today and down tomorrow.
“Well, let’s hope that something will happen”: Nothing will happen.
But I know Him whom I believe, I am persuaded – 2 Timothy 1:12
Therefore, he said, “rejoice in the Lord and I say rejoice. Rejoice evermore” – Philippians 4:4
When you are persuaded of a great tomorrow, joy and rejoicing becomes your natural companion, you are not looking for it.
At the end it shall speak. Some Bible Scholars claim that it was 50 days that they were in the Upper Room.

The days were not mentioned in the scriptures, they got it probably through their studies. But they waited, in prayers, in searching of scriptures, in Peter leading, they waited and when the day of Pentecost was fully come, He met them waiting, watching for the enduement of power and then the heavens opened and the earth was visited.

Power broke out from heaven and the effect is still here today, after 2000 years. They waited!! So it spoke at the end.
They were in one accord praying when suddenly there was a sound from heaven – Acts 2:2
They waited.
“Tarry ye”: They waited and heaven came down.

Luke 24:49
It shall surely come to pass, it shall not tarry. At the end it shall speak – Habakkuk 2:3
But we must continue rejoicing, thanking, praising, worshipping to secure God’s agenda at the end.

We must not be found murmuring, complaining and requiring encouragement every night and day.
My wife is here, a number of people are in this Church that have been here forever. I have never needed encouragement to do what I am doing.

You are insulting me, means what I am doing is affecting you. It is either impacting in your life positively or you are looking for trouble for yourself. Never!
-My prayer is that your life will be over-run with the joy of the Lord and that is sure to secure for you God’s agenda of a great tomorrow.
Just keep doing what He says, He determines the end.

He determines the end.
We never prayed, “O God, when are we going to go on foreign field?”
It is His agenda, when it is time, He will open it up.

We never prayed, “O God, remember you said, you will build a sanctuary of 50,000.” He is not a dullard, He knows. We just kept going, to the point that until when we were on the design table, before I said, “bring…I think there is a document that defines the figure.”
You are too busy pursuing after funny, funny things. Pursue after God, everything He says will keep pursuing after you phase after phase.

I mean there was no need to pray for aircraft, it is not a common thing. It is not something to think about. So if you are going to plan and do financial projection, you know how many years it will take? You would have retired.
No, at the end it shall speak.
Come on now, keep pursuing after God. The pursuit after name, after fame, after status, after wealth, you will get frustrated in no time. But the pursuit after God keeps you ever excited. Joseph was busy pursuing after God and God enthroned him far away from the Palace.
“And the Lord was with Joseph” – Genesis 39:3
He was just in pursuit of God all through. The pursuit of things can be very damaging. Just pursue after God, you are going to get there.
Don’t like to be important, just follow this God. He defines your glorious destiny phase by phase.
Say with me, “at the end it shall speak. All I need to do is to keep pursuing after God and the interest of His Kingdom with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my mind.”
-The God of ‘at the end’ will speak. His agenda will come true.
-Your life will be a testimony.
Just pursue after God, at the end His agenda must speak. Some are downcast today because all they are looking for is not appearing real.
“I think by now I should be a Director”: Go and direct. What did you do to be where you are now?
“By now I think this business should be in millions”: Now, think of where you began from, think of where you are.
“I think by now we should have gone global”: Why not? You can buy a world map and then stand on it. Then say, “I am now a global business mogul”
I heard God unveil those stuff, April 10th 1982, I never pursued after any of them in my life, that God, you said you will do this.
He said: Yes
You should have done it by now. How do you know?
I was on my way, going on my own when He said, “the harvest of Africa is now over ripe, rush in and preserve it.” I didn’t ask Him, He didn’t inform me before. It was time for it. He makes all things beautiful in His time.
-God will decorate your life.
The harder and excitedly you pursue after God, the higher you fly. Just stop chasing after the shadows. This God is sweet. He has continued to decorate destinies in this place, before our very eyes without any hesitation.
-Yours is the next.
-May the few hours remaining before we step into 2022 be overcharged with thanksgiving, joy and rejoicing of whom God has been to you, to your family, to your health and to all that pertains to you. Start from now and give Him thanks.
Prayers: Give Him thanks in the Spirit. In depth thanks. You are where you are, I am where I am, we are where we are all by His grace. All by His grace.
The grace we don’t appreciate will depreciate. The grace we don’t appreciate will be turned to disgrace. Give Him thanks because at the end it is bound to speak.
We have just a few hours more, God will do wonders. God will conclude His agenda for your life this month by in depth gratitude to God. The grace we don’t appreciate will be turned to disgrace.
The grace of God in your life will not be turned to disgrace. It will not depreciate, it will keep multiplying.
Give Him thanks for your health. Give Him thanks for the covering over your life. Give Him thanks for the covering over your family. Give Him thanks for the things that don’t appear to be thankworthy, Give Him thanks. That is the only way they will be turned around. That is the only way this story changer God is eager to reach out to you before these few hours are over.

At the end it shall speak as you get to do the right thing. Give Him thanks, He is working on you. He is at work in you, He is at work in your life. No looking back.
Blessed be Your name Jesus, thank You Lord.

Now say it to Him in words, in clarity of words: Lord, I thank You for where your grace has brought me. I thank You for where Your grace has brought my family. I thank You for where Your grace has re-positioned me. I celebrate You Jesus, there is no one like You. Give Him glory.
