I NEVER KNEW OYEDEPO IN MY LIFE, THE HOLY SPIRIT AUDIBLY DIRECTED ME TO HIM
EVERYBODY HAS A PASTOR, EVEN A PASTOR HAS A PASTOR, IF YOU DON’T HAVE A PASTOR THERE WILL BE NO PASTURE
A SHEEP WITHOUT A SHEPHERD IS A GOAT
YOU DON’T HAVE TO ATTEND EVERY CHURCH
-Pastor David Ibiyeomie
Don’t just go anywhere because everybody is going there, you go to where God has sent you. I have taught so much on that, I talked about Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and Joseph I said each one has a specific instruction
Abraham to Egypt, Isaac to the Philistines, Jacob to Laban, Joseph to Egypt. You don’t do something because somebody else is doing it.
Now, imagine me if I was to be in the United States of America, I would have been poor, some of you will say, well with this anointing, I will be broke, because that is not where God sent me, there are people who are flourishing in America because God sent them there.
Even for Churches too, you don’t have to attend every Church, there are churches that you attend and you know nothing is working, you’re just being sentimental. Some people will know definitely that the place they are is a wrong place, but they will say we speak the same language.
Just imagine I remained where I became born again without leaving for Papa Oyedepo, you should know what will happen? All I will be saying is lose your hold, lose your hold and no hold will leave. He moves me to move Oyedepo and I flourish because he spoke to me specifically, I never knew Oyedepo in my life, never in my life. I laid down, I still remember the house where I slept and He said I will send you to a Bible School, I said where and audibly he called the man’s name. First time in my life, I have never been to Iyana Ipaja, I stayed in Lagos for years, that was the first time I went to Iyana Ipaja and when I got there, I saw him, I said this is my pastor, I didn’t need anybody to tell me.
When he climbed the altar, I will never forget in 1995.
He just climbed, he said praise the Lord, he put his hand in his pocket, he said listen to me, I can never be poor. I said wow!
This is my pastor, the Holy Ghost in me just bears witness with my spirit. Everybody has a pastor, even a pastor has a pastor, if you don’t have a pastor there will be no pasture because he makes us to lie down in green pastures, to be without a shepherd is dangerous, a sheep without a shepherd is a goat and they don’t shepherd a goat, because a goat has no direction.
Even in the village if a goat is moving, he moves anyhow. Sheep move in groups.
