THERE ARE MANY FAITH-EMPTY PRAYER WARRIORS THAT ARE WARRING EVERY DAY WITHOUT PROOFS OF ANSWERED PRAYERS.
IT IS NOT WHATEVER THING YOU ASK IN PRAYER, DISPLAYING AND YOU SHALL HAVE IT;
SHOUTING AND YOU SHALL HAVE IT;
ROLLING ON THE FLOOR AND YOU SHALL HAVE IT:
IT IS BELIEVING AND YOU SHALL HAVE IT.
TESTIMONIES IN OUR CONTEMPORARY TIME POINT US TO OUR HERITAGE IN CHRIST THAT WE MAY NOT HAVE BEEN AWARE OF HOW TO ACCESS.
THE SERENITY TESTIMONY OF HAGIN WAS MY GREATEST ATTRACTION TO HIM. HE IS A RAW DEMONSTRATION OF THE REALITY OF FAITH.
I SAW THE SERENITY OF THAT GIANT OF FAITH. I SAW HOW STRUGGLE FREE HIS MINISTRY IS. I SAW HOW MINISTERING TO HUGE CROWDS IS LIKE SPEAKING TO PEOPLE IN HIS BEDROOM.
HIS TESTIMONY BROUGHT ME MY TESTIMONY. I HAVE NEVER HAD TO GENERATE TEMPERATURE IN THE PURSUIT OF ANY AGENDA THAT GOD DELIVERS.
YOU WILL NEVER FIND ANY FAITH FILLED BELIEVER WHO HAS NOT BEEN FEEDING ON THE TESTIMONIES OF OTHERS.
– Bishop David Oyedepo at CHoP
Let’s worship Him in this song: 🎶There is none like You. No one can touch my life like You do. I have searched through eternity and I have found there is no one like You. 🎶
What He says, He means. What He means, He says. Amen
No one can handle challenges of any product like the manufacturer. No one under Heaven can handle your life and my life for repairs, for restoration like the One who made us.
“Come unto Me, no matter the years of your challenges and I will give you rest” – Matthew 11:28
He has the answers to all issues of our lives. Going to a manufacturer and going to a road mechanic on your car, the difference is wide.
The manufacturer does not need to hear the sound, he puts it on the machine, he knows what it is and he fixes it for you as if it were new.
He is still repairing lives today. He is still restoring lives today,
-No one here will miss out of it.
For all the prayers, all the restoration since this fast began, give God thanks. Celebrate and magnify Him. Thank You Jesus, in Jesus precious name we have prayed.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonders all through the week: the wonders of answered prayers, the wonders of diverse encounter with You through Your Word. Thank You Jesus for the things we have seen and the things we shall yet see. Blessed be Your name, in Jesus precious name. Speak to us again this morning and keep our lives going. Enhance the quality of our walk with You and let our lives continue to have meaning, in Jesus precious name.
THE PRAYER OF FAITH IS THE PRAYER THAT WORKS
Whatever things you desire: Kingdom based or personal, when ye pray, you want answers, believe that you have received and then you shall have – Mark 11:24
Believe first that I keep My Words when you line up with it and then you shall receive.
Believe that you receive them and you shall have them – Mark 11:24. You don’t believe, you cannot have.
The prayer of faith is the prayer that works.
Whatsoever things he shall ask in prayers, believing, you shall receive them – Matthew 21:22
Let him ask in faith, or let not that man think he shall receive anything from God – James 1:6
Only the prayer of faith guarantees answers.
Don’t ever go to the prayer altar faith empty.
Approach your prayer altar with faith, for your prayer and my prayer to qualify for answers.
I sat down here one day and I said, “Jesus, give me a thousand souls this month.” We have never had that before but He did it.
Faith built up further in me, I said, “give us a thousand souls this week” and suddenly my team became a thousand per week.
He is still on duty today. Every prayer prayed according to His will, He wants all men saved, “how can I now ask for one in a week and not have it if I truly believe?”
1 Timothy 2:4
“How can I demand for one in a whole month when He is eager to save everybody and not have it?”
We could pray the prayer shouting but we are not praying believing.
You could pray that prayer rolling on the floor, but you are not believing. It is not whatever thing you ask in prayer, displaying and you shall have it; shouting and you shall have it; rolling on the floor and you shall have it: believing and you shall have it.
My wife sitting next to me didn’t hear when I was saying, “Jesus, give us this week a thousand souls.”
It doesn’t demand a shout, it demands faith.
Everybody: one soul, one month.
Response: No, where will I get it from? No, I don’t believe that.
If you say everybody: one million, one week
Response: I am ready.
Everybody: one million, one day
Arrive at Covenant Hour of Prayer, one hour before time. They will get here 2 hours before time.
Response: I am here for my 1 million. Hallelujah. Glory to God. I confess, I confirm.
There are many faith-empty prayer warriors and they are warring every day without proofs of answered prayers.
I cried to God this morning, “let every single daughter of Abraham in this house, on the line for miracle marriage get supernaturally married and settled this year” and He hears me when I pray. So it is settled for them. Amen.
It was not on my prayer schedule for the day. I found myself praying that, “that every woman that belongs to this family, this ever-winning family that is called barren, as the Lord of this Commission lives, they are already turned to joyful mothers of children this year.”
It is our year of release.
I cried out to God, “every single Winner appointed to death and at the verge of the gate of Heaven, Lord, rescue.”
If any be tied down in any dungeon of ritual killers and kidnappers, I sent the Angel of this Commission in that prayer, “go for their rescue and give us a testimony tomorrow.”
And we shall hear it.
You can’t seek the good of others and be ever grounded. Whatever good thing any man does, the same he shall receive from the Lord whether he be bond or free – Ephesians 6:8. You don’t have to be a Pastor, you don’t have to be a Minister: every believer.
He that waters shall himself be watered back unto – Proverbs 11:25
That my daughter shared a testimony, she was busy praying Kingdom advancement prayers and praying for others who were in need and God told them, wherever the place was, “call her now to come and collect her letter” (documented testimony). Since 2018!
She simply said, “over to You Jesus, I will do Your will.”
If you and I will say that, He will take over our issues and when Jesus takes over anyone’s battle, the battle is over.
-The good news is that He is taking over your battle and your victory, triumph and breakthrough testimonies are guaranteed before or at the end of this Prayer session.
Faith is engaging the covenant keeping God through the altar of prayer. We serve a covenant keeping God – Psalm 89:34
We serve a covenant keeping God. Until you can alter His covenant of the day and of the night, you can’t tamper with any covenant of scriptures – Jeremiah 33:20
When He says, “seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added to you” – Matthew 6:33
It is a covenant, a covenant for the life of fulfilled, a life of meaning and impact; you decide to do that with your time. He multiplies the effect of your time to you.
And with your energy: He multiplies your strength back to you.
There is no single act in the Kingdom that is not a seed and every seed multiplies back in harvest.
While the earth remaineth, seed time and harvest shall not cease: it is not just money.
-Favour shall not cease to flow in your house.
This is where God helped me to line up with His Word much more diligently than ever when I saw in Jeremiah chapter 33 verses 20 and 21, “except ye can break my covenant of the day and of the night…then will also my covenant be broken with my servant David”
Until you can stop the sun and the moon, you can’t stop my covenant with my people: the Levites, the Priests, the Redeemed of the Lord who we are.
Every time you wake up and you see the day turning, “My God, God’s covenant remains in force.”
You look up in the night, you see the moon, “God’s covenant is in force.”
All we need is line up.
There is no further negotiation, it is concluded.
When Jesus announced, “It is finished”: all matters concerning my covenant with mankind is settled – John 19:30
You will never have if you will not ask: it is my covenant.
You ask and you will not receive because you ask amiss: to brag, to show that you are somebody. In competition with someone, in carnality – James 4:3
One way of building our faith is through the testimony of the hand of God on the lives of others.
Testimonies are faith boosters. They strengthen the faith of the saints to access their own heritage in Christ.
You will never find any faith filled believer who has not been feeding on the testimonies of others.
We speak according to what is written and we speak according to what has happened.
What is written is still happening today: so locate those who got it, line up with what steps they took, you will get yours.
The serenity testimony of Hagin was my greatest attraction to him. He is a raw demonstration of the reality of faith, “they that believed have entered into rest and ceased from their own struggles” – Hebrews 4:10
“Lord, whatever is in this man that has brought him to this realm of rest, I want it”: That is where that colloquial English came from, “whatever makes Hagin, Hagin, I want it.”
I saw the serenity of that giant of faith. I saw how struggle free his Ministry is. I saw how ministering to huge crowds is like speaking to people in his bedroom:
“I want this. Only a fool won’t know what he needs when he finds it. This one is the kind I want. The one you will jump up and down, I don’t want. I want this kind.” Before I understood it is the depth of faith, the strength of faith that brings a man into rest.
His testimony brought me my testimony. I have never had to generate temperature in the pursuit of any agenda that God delivers.
-Every trace of struggle that keeps you sweating and sweating is over.
Testimony enlightens. If they speak not according to the Word is because there is no light in them, they are in darkness. Testimony enlightens.
The things that were written aforetime, they were written for our learning that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope – Romans 15:4
That is what testimonies of the scriptures do.
Testimonies in our contemporary time, they point us to our heritage in Christ that we may not have been aware of how to access.
Psalm 119:111 – Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage forever. They are the rejoicing of my heart.
The woman with the issue of blood in Matthew chapter 9 verses 21 to 23 got her miracle. In Matthew chapter 14, everybody in the world around them were going to do anything to touch the hem of His garment – Matthew 14:36
And as many as did, were made perfectly whole, after the same order of the testimony of the woman with the issue of blood.
“They besought him that they might touch the hem of his garment”: Where the woman touched, that is where we want to touch.
With all the Peter, James and John standing like lions around Christ, they said, “Na lie” (It’s a lie). When they were going to trample them, they just cleared, since they know they can’t trample Jesus.
That is how someone’s testimony leads to the testimony of others.
CHoP is an acronym for Covenant Hour of Prayer.
