WE HAVE AN ENORMOUS GROWTH AND EXPANSION PROJECT FOR THE YEAR AND IT TAKES FAITH ON THE ALTAR OF PRAYER TO TAKE DELIVERY
WE ARE ENTERING INTO CHURCH FLOW, AS AN AFTERMATH OF THIS PRAYER AND FASTING SEASON.
THE END TIME CHURCH IS ORDAINED TO OPERATE IN THE REALM OF FLOW, NOT JUST GROWTH.
HOWEVER, WE CAN’T SIT DOWN THERE AND EXPECT TO ENTER INTO THE REALM OF A FLOW.
PEOPLE HATE THE WORD, ‘WORK’, BUT WHATEVER YOU DON’T WORK OUT WILL LOSE WORTH.
IF YOU WON’T WORK IT OUT, YOU WILL LOSE WORTH OPENLY. YOU WILL BE UPSET WITH YOURSELF.
EVERYTHING OF WORTH IS WORK. NO WORK WORKS ITSELF.
BEHIND EVERYTHING WORKING IS A WORKER.
– Bishop David Oyedepo at CHoP
The end time Church is ordained a Church of multitudes – Micah 4:1-2
“And people shall flow into it”: so we are moving from the area of growth to the realm of flow. A flow of people, in droves: that is the end time Church. It is ordained to operate in the realm of a flow, not just growth. That is God’s prophecy but the Bible says in 1 Timothy chapter 1 verse18, “…according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightiest war a good warfare;”
1 Timothy 1:18
Every prophetic Word, more often than not demands warfare for delivery. Every prophetic Word, more often than not demands spiritual warfare for delivery.
Why? A great door and effectual is opened unto me and there are many adversaries – 1 Corinthians 16:9
This warfare is carried out on the prayer front, for we wrestle not against flesh and blood: it is a wrestle. But against principalities and powers – Ephesians 6:12
The same way Jacob wrestled and secured his destiny; recovered his destiny with a new name.
We are called to wrestle on the prayer altar, to clear up the way, all the contentions of hell against God’s Word coming to pass. People hate the word, ‘work’, but whatever you don’t work out will lose worth.
He said, “work out your salvation with fear and trembling” – Philippians 2:12
If you won’t work it out, you will lose worth openly. You will be upset with yourself. It is work that enhances worth. We can’t sit down there and expect to enter into the realm of a flow. We clear off the barriers on the way, for when a king fully armed keeps his palace, his goods are in safety; but when a stronger than him shall come upon him, “come on, get off your hands off these lives, come on, get off your hands off these individuals”, then He clears the way.
But it is the prayer of faith that is required to win this war and that is why the exhortation line for our Covenant Hour of Prayer for this week is captioned:
THE PRAYER OF FAITH IS THE PRAYER THAT WORKS
That family of the second testimony wrestled on the prayer altar, had their desire and made Kingdom Advancement prayer their platform for delivery and now the baby is here (documented testimony).
This lady had this eye problem, a growth in the eye. To her surprise, a few days into the fast, the growth vanished, the pain disappeared, operation no longer required (documented testimony). It is her right but it will not be delivered without engaging the warfare of prayer and fasting.
While we are saying, “seek ye first the Kingdom of God”, we remind Him of what belongs to us that is yet to be made manifest.
We remind Him and then He supplies it.
Say with me, “The prayer of faith is the prayer that works.”
Remember He says, “you have not because you ask not” – James 4:2
I have promised it, you can’t see it. Make demand for it.
I said, “I am bringing the Church to the realm of flow and you are not experiencing that. Now, demand for it.” That is God’s ordination.
For today, we will look at the following facts:
Faith is a means of engaging God’s capacity for delivery through the altar of prayer.
