I appreciate all our Daddies and Mummies Labouring with them – The Lord Bless and Increase your Anointing more in the Name of Jesus (Amen).

Are you ready tonight?

Jesus Christ is ready for you!

I am going to take a Scripture and we read: John 20:22

And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

That is – When He has said this; He released “Fresh Air” upon them and said: Receive the Holy Ghost.

When I began to Pray for this Meeting tonight; I began to ask God – What is “Fresh Air”?

Anytime that you think of “Fresh”, it means:

I. Something that is Original in Quality.

II. Something that the Quality is unimpaired; that is not Stale, that is not sour or decayed.

III. Something that is not Altered.

What is “Fresh Air”

Now, by the Grace of God, my father in the Lord (That is Daddy GO) is a Mathematician but I am a Scientist.

If you check the components of the “Air” in Science, you will discovered that this “Air” contains: Nitrogen, Oxygen, Carbon dioxide, Argon, Water Vapour and some traces of other gases

DMC NOTES: Kindly find the Percentage Composition of Air – Air composed of approximately 78 Percent Nitrogen, 21 Percent Oxygen, 0.93 Percent Argon, 0.04 Percent carbon dioxide as well as trace amounts of Neon, Helium, Methane, Krypton, Ozone and Hydrogen, as well as Water Vapour.

I. If God is saying “Fresh Air”; He won’t say “Fresh Nitrogen”.

II. If God says to us that He is giving us “Fresh Air”; He won’t say “Fresh Carbon dioxide”.

How does a Market Woman knows what is carbon dioxide?

Explain to me how Somebody who didn’t go to School will understand what is called Argon?

That is why anytime Jesus Christ is teaching; He teaches in the Language that People can understand!

So, if God is saying to us in the Month of January 2022; after the Siege was Over in December 2021; that there will be “Fresh Air” – He is not talking of “Fresh Nitrogen”.

There is something Peculiar about this Air.

And I can say to you from the Scriptures that we read – When He breathed “Fresh Air” upon them, He gave them the Holy Ghost!

“Fresh Air” is the Holy Ghost!

When He breath on them, He said: Receive the Holy Ghost.

… The Holy Ghost is ever Fresh and it is not Stale.

God does not need to be Updated, He is Up-To-Date.

Now, if we check the Scriptures – In Genesis 2:7:

And the LORD God formed Man of the dust of the Ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Man became a Living Soul.

What is that “Air” that can make a “Dead Clay” becomes a “Living Man”?

It is the Holy Ghost

Ezekiel 37: 1-9 – When Ezekiel was taken to the Valley of dry bones; the Lord asked him a question: Can these dry bones live?

He said only you knows and God said Prophesy.

And he called the Wind and he Prophesied as commanded and a “Valley of Dry Bones” become a “Valley of Mighty Men”.

What is it that can enter a “Dead Dry Life” and make it a “Mighty Life”?

It is beyond the Oxygen – It must be the Holy Ghost!

When Jesus Christ encountered the Disciples after His Resurrection in John 20:22 – He breathe on them (He didn’t give them Oxygen or Carbon dioxide) but He said receive ye the Holy Ghost!

John 20:22 – And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

Acts 2: 1-4 says:

1. And when the Day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one Place.

2. And suddenly there came a Sound from Heaven as of a rushing Mighty Wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

3. And there appeared unto them Cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

4. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

When “Fresh Air” came from Heaven, the Holy Ghost landed upon Men!

Have you observed from all the Scriptures that we read that anytime the Holy Ghost come to Town; anything dead come back to Life!

When this “Fresh Air” entered the Valley of dry bones, everything came back to Life.

I don’t care what is dead in your Life – Is it your Business, Finance, Health, Academics, your Brain; anything that is dead is coming back to Life tonight (Amen).

I Perceived in my Spirit that there is Someone here tonight or reading now on the Label of DMC with a “Dead Body Parts” – That is a Part of your body is dead.

Hear me: Check it now; that Part is coming back alive – Amen.

What happened when there was “Fresh Air” in the Bible.

1. Take Acts 2: 1:4 as Case Study!

The First thing is that the People has Utterance and they began to Pray in tongues.

The Days of “Fresh Air” is the Days of Revival!

Enough is enough of a Church that cannot Pray!

A Church that cannot Pray is a Church that is Playing!

The Days of “Fresh Air” is the Days of Prayers!

They had Utterance, they were not gisting – Their Language changed!

They began to speak in a Language that they don’t understand and they were able to address Problems they could not understand.

Do you believe that “Fresh Air” is here tonight or as you read now on the Label of DMC?

Now, in case you are not Baptised in the Holy Ghost – As you are hearing my Voice or reading the Transcript now on the Label of DMC: Begin to speak in tongues!

Acts 10:44 – The Bible says that when Peter was speaking; the Holy Ghost fell upon them that heard him.

Now, everybody under the Sound of my Voice or reading the Transcript now on the Label of DMC: The Day of “Fresh Air” is the Day of New Utterance!

I. Instead you go back to Church and be on Fire for God:

II. You see your friends and when you want to greet them, you begin to speak in tongues.

III. You enter a bus, the first thing that comes out is tongue.

… Because there is “Fresh Air” and there is Utterance.

He that speaketh in tongues, speaketh not unto Men but unto God howbeit he speak Mysteries.

Hear me: Why did they stop the Prayers of Daniel?

It was because the Prince of Persia understood it!

2. When “Fresh Air” came in Acts 2: 5-12; they became a Wonder to their Generation.

The People said: Who are these Men? Are they drunk?

Hear me: After this Holy Ghost Night or your reading of the Full Text on the Label of DMC: Everyone who looks down upon you, will look up to you – Amen!

Because why? – Anytime there is “Fresh Air”; “Normal People” becomes “Extraordinary People” or “Normal People” becomes “Abnormal People”.

… Abnormal means “Above Normal”.

They look at you and say:

I. Is it not the guy that cannot do well in School.

Now, your children will return to School after this Holy Ghost Night and they will begin to lead in their Classes – Amen!

II. Now you are the one losing in Business.

Suddenly, you return and they are shock.

What happened to him – “Fresh Air”.

III. You are the one that has been Single – Nobody is seeing you.

But you will return and the brother will say: Hello sis; babe. Where have you been?

… “Fresh Air” has just landed!

When “Fresh Air” landed; what is not attracted before becomes Attractive!

IV. Maybe your Helpers has been Passing you – They looked at you but they don’t recognise you.

It is because you are carrying “Stale Air” but things will Change when “Fresh Air” landed on you.

3. Acts 2: 14-37 – Evangelism becomes easy and Souls are won in their Multitudes.

Peter Preached a Message; three thousand (3,000) joined the Church.

… What did he say?

It is not about Greeks and Hebrews or Grammar – But Power!

The People you have been trying to convert and they are not obeying; it is because you lacked something – Power!

In the Days of “Fresh Air”; little Message, Mighty Results!

Peter Preached a Second Message, five thousand (5,000) Souls were won; Third Message, they couldn’t even count the Number.

What was he saying?

The Bible says that their hearts were Pricked.

Why? – He was Preaching under “Fresh Air”.

Enough of “Stale Air” in our Churches

You go to Church, Church look like Museum. There is no difference between Church and Club.

In case we do Service in the Mosque, there will be Power there because we are the one carrying the Power everywhere – Anywhere we enter, Power enters!

You enter a Market, you shut down a Store – Why? “Fresh Air” came.

Have you noticed that when a Man or a Lady uses a Nice Fragrance, when he/she enters somewhere everybody turns because of the kind of Fragrance.

When you carry “Fresh Air”; Souls turn to you – They look at you and turn.

Why? – Fragrance!

That is why when my father in the Lord makes an Altar Call tonight, watch and see.

4. Anytime there is “Fresh Air”; Supernatural becomes Normal – Acts 2:43.

Mighty Signs were done by the Apostles in the Days of “Fresh Air”.

Now hear me: Everyone that is sick under the Sound of my Voice or reading now on the Label of DMC: You are Healed – Amen!

Miracle is a “Biscuit” for God’s Children!

5. In the Days of “Fresh Air”, there is No Lack – Acts 2:45.

In the Referenced Bible Text, they lacked Nothing as everybody had.

Now hear me: Prosperity has Nothing to do about Church.

You have been broke too long – It is Over!

In the Days of “Fresh Air”; there is Abundance – The least of us is a Millionaire – Amen!

Please rise up now:

There is Someone having “Serious Debt” – God said that I should tell you that between now (7th January 2022) and 22nd February 2022, it is Cleared – Amen

6. What happens in the Days of “Fresh Air” – There is Love and Unity in the House.

I. How come a Fellow Christian cannot put food down and you will eat it?

You are afraid that they will Poison you.

That is “Bad Breathe” and not “Fresh Air”.

Christians are the one destroying themselves.

In the days of the Apostles, they were eating together.

Ask yourself: When last do you eat with Somebody in the Church? Do you even trust them? – We are all suspecting ourselves!

Pastors cannot even trust themselves!

How did we get here?

… In the days of the Apostles, they were eating together!

II. When last do you hold Love Feast in the Church?

You are afraid of the food and you bless it and bless it.

This is a food a Fellow Brethren Prepared o.

Why? – Because the heart of Men are desperately wicked.

III. You can’t trust your child with Somebody in the Church!

They can kidnapped the child and tell you that they don’t know where the child went.

IV. A Fellow Brother cannot come and sleep in your house.

He will close one eyes and open the Second eyes!

V. Even today, People are killing Pastors in the Church.

How do we get here?

In the days of “Fresh Air”; there is Love, there is Unity and No Competition among Brethrens!

Today, you want to Outshine your Fellow Pastor; you want to Outshine your Fellow Choirmaster.

If your Choir friend leads Song today, you want to come tomorrow and lead your own to be better.

Error! – How do we get here? Who did us like this?

In the days of the Apostles, they were going from House to House, loving one another. But today, everybody is a Suspect!

… Enough is Enough!

Hear me: When there is “Fresh Air” and I see a Redeem Sticker on you and you are trekking and I’m driving; I will Park and carry you!

You are coming from the Old Arena to the New Arena in your car alone and People are trekking – Error!

I agreed that there are “Bad People” among the “Good People” but if you are doing Good, God will keep you!

He says that: When the ways of a Man Pleases God, He maketh his enemies to be at Peace with him.

Too many wrong Stories – But the People of the other Religion love each other.

We are the Originator of Love because God is Love!

Are we going to Love ourselves?

Look at your Neighbour and say: I Love You!

Are you a Redeemer? – All Redeemers are supposed to love each other.

Please Stand – Hold your Neighbour to your Left and Right Hands as we sing this Song:

We are Redeemer
United in Love
Jesus is for us
We shall Conquer

We are together
United in Love
Jesus is for us
We shall Conquer

We are Victorious
United in Love
Jesus is for us
We shall Conquer

Covenant Children
United in Love
Jesus is for us
We shall Conquer

If there is Love, there is Revival – The First Evidence of Revival is not speaking in tongues but in showing Love

E je ki a feran ara wa (Let us Love each other).

… That is “Fresh Air”.

Are you ready:

Chorus of the Song

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Shout Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

CLOSING PRAYER

Father, we Thank You Lord – We give You Praise for this “Fresh Air”; we Thank You for The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), a Covenant Church.

… Thank You for the “Fresh Air”.

Lord, we Pray that this Revival will not die; the Holy Ghost will move all over our Churches, there will be Power, Miracles, Revival, Salvation of Souls and Love among Brethrens.

In Jesus Name we have Prayed – Amen!

Come on, give the Lord a Shout of Praise – HALLELUJAH!!!

Midweek Sermon Winners Church Understanding the power of visions

Midweek service Winners Church

TOPIC: Understanding the power of visions By David Oyedepo Jnr

Winners Church

God has a plan for your life and my life. Your future is not in your plan but His plan Romans 8:29 every child of God has a glorious destiny but the journey begins with discovery. Jeremiah 33:3 come unto me I will show u great and mighty things. This tells us God has plans for us that we know not. I pray the Lord shall reveal it to you in Jesus name
God’s plan is unveiled not only through the Word but also through vision Psalms 119:105. Habakkuk 2:1 I will stand upon my watch … He says write the visions…

What is the difference between vision and revelation

When you access God’s plan through the Word is called revelation Hebrew 10:7 the eyes of our understanding suddenly opens. Luke 4:17 what was written there was written for Him.
But when you have a raw encounter with God is called vision. We begin with

  • Moses Exodus 3:7 It was a raw visitation that prepare Moses for his mission.
  • Paul: Acts 9:42 when it is a raw visitation is vision.
    It’s vital and important to understand one’s location, timing, etc that requires answers we need a vision where God will answer us.

Why do we need vision?

1. No one knows tomorrow like God who created tomorrow Isaiah 46:9 tomorrow is already a past tense to God. You need to gain access to God who knows tomorrow. He already declared what will be tomorrow. Psalms 31:15, Isaiah 25:1 God created not just things but even times. So we need vision from the who has seen it to the end. If you want today secured then go to the one who has finished tomorrow.
2. When man plan his project’s but when God declares is because he has seen it. 1 Corinthians 2:9 the future is already finished he has prepared future ahead for us so we go to God in prayer Romans 8:21 everything you are ordained to manifest the future is already prepared all you need is access to unveiled what which is prepared.
Jeremiah 1:5 Take not he said ‘I Knew’ before your conception, there was already an available plan.
Galatians 1:15

How do we access God’s vision?

1. You must desire access to vision proverbs 18:1, 2chronicles 15:15 if you want access to the secret of God then you must have a desire. A genuine desire to God’s plan your future is not in your plan but his plan. The potency of your desire determines the access you get. Revelation 1:10
2. Engage the altar of prayer to gain Access Habakkuk 2:1, I will stand upon my watch… Only those who made demand are eligible for access Jeremiah 33:3 matter 7:8 ask and you shall receive

Biblical proves of true vision

1. Every true vision drives the visionary Jeremiah 20:9 they are naturally driven by the visionary. Mark 1:2 the spirit begins to drive the individuals. You don’t get the vision and sit down it drives u
2. Every true vision alleviates fear Exodus 4:23 they were looking for Mosses he was on the wanted list but the vision and message gave him the zeal.
3. Every true vision carries no fear. Philippians 1:21 unusual confidence. Acts 20:24 there is a vision so nothing was able to intimidate him. When a man receives vision he packs up immediately.

Conclusion: God is calling us unto a life of divine vision. My prayer is God gives you a divine vision in Jesus’ name.

The prophetic focus for January 2022 : Gods plan for me is in His book

Hebrews 11:33 Daniel 6:4 you can’t stand for God and end of a looser, don’t stand in the middle of the road it is a risk if you stand with God Stand with him fully and not halfway

John 14:12 from now everything that refuses you will begin to answer you now in Jesus name

Matthew 4:23, we have a heritage of no limits in Christ as you hear this Jesus He is healing all manner of sickness and disease.

From today those things that make people ask where is your God shall be changed to testimony in Jesus name

Mark 9:23 Through faith Serah at 90 received strength to conceive Genesis 21:7, through faith the Red Seas Exodus 14:3 was parted. All the enemies after you shall drown in that Red sea you are going through in Jesus’ name.

Shiloh 2019 prophetic Prayer David Oyedepo Day 1

  1. Every impossible case around your life will be crushed in Jesus name
  2. Daniel 3:27 what consume others has no more power to consume you as your father is a consuming fire
  3. Tonight marks an exemption in your life in Jesus name
  4. Your life will never smell affliction again in Jesus’ name. That’s the No limit power of faith.

Until your faith fails your command remains in place. There is no irreversible case with faith John 11:40

Every death sentence on anyone’s life its reverted tonight in Jesus name

Whatever has been thought impossible in your life becomes a testimony in Jesus name

Mark 4:40 fear and faith can not work together its like light and darkness, no fear at all at all = great faith, 40 years now I have not fallen sick, and no devil can dare my path.

Faith is a master key to a world of unlimited impossibility.

First mystery – What kind of faith empower a believer into a world of No limit

  1. Redemption Rooted Faith: whatever is born of God overcometh the world 1 John 5:4

Many are struggling because they are running on an appropriated faith. They cannot put their finger on when they were saved. It can never be late to get it right Gehazi did not get it right though working with Elijah, so being in church does not make you a child of God

2 Corinthians 13:5 prove yourself to certify your salvation. What are the proves of redemption I my life?

John 3:3-7 Jesus said unless a man is born again he cannot enter into the kingdom. So you must be born again. The new birth is experiencing a transformation. You cannot practice it as a philosophy but you must have experience.

How do I know I am born again and what are the proves of new birth.

  1. Love – Your heart goes after God. This the first thing that happens Revelation 2:4
  2. The love for righteousness Psalms 45:7 your love for righteousness blossoms
  3. Supernatural Joy 1 Peter 1:8 every truly born again child of God is difficult to be depressed jealously guard your salvation 1 Corinthians 10:12
  4. Peace John 14:27 peace that passes all knowledge Philippians 4:7, you cannot buy it with money

It takes the above to prove your salvation

  1. Spiritual Understanding: Mark 4:41 you have a revelation of scripture New birth grants us ACCES to spiritual understanding

Seeds of Destiny 20 August 2019 Devotional: Living A Lie – A Highway To Destruction

Topic:Living A Lie – A Highway To Destruction
[Seeds of Destiny 20 August 2019 Devotional]
Until you open your life to God, God does not open your destiny to you.

SCRIPTURE: And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. Genesis 32:27-28

Dr Paul Enenche Live Sunday Service DUNAMIS ABUJA

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Until you open your life to God, God does not open your destiny to you.

Our anchor Scripture confirms that the admission of truth is one of the factors that determine the fulfilment of destiny. When Jacob’s father asked Jacob who he was at the time he wanted to get the blessing, he said that he was Esau (Genesis 27:32). That was a lie. But when the angel asked him who he was, he had to open up to the angel by saying that he was Jacob. That truth led him into destiny fulfilment.

Today, we live in a generation where many people live a lie in everything. Some people get involved in an arranged marriage in order to travel abroad, some people forge documents in order to get a job. For some people, the different parts of their body are mobile lies. Sometime ago, I heard that a woman did an artificial silicone implant of the breast and while she was in an aircraft travelling, one of the breasts exploded in the aircraft. What vanity!

Beloved, take note of the following:

a. Until you open your life to God, God does not open your destiny to you.

b. Cover-up is the way to a closed life. Truth is key to triumph. Until people are set for the truth, they are not set for their future.

Beloved, you should be able to open up to God and say, ‘Lord, I lie, I cheat, I deceive, I masturbate, I am a lesbian, a homosexual, a smoker, or a drunkard,’ if that is what you find yourself in. Tell God, ‘Lord, I know this can destroy my life and take me to hell. Lord, please help me destroy this wrong desire.’ Ask God for mercy and He will intervene, change you and open up your destiny.

  • Remember this: Until you open your life to God, God does not open your destiny to you.

ASSIGNMENT(S):
1.If you have committed a sin, confess it and ask God for mercy.
2.Live a life free of sin; live with the consciousness of eternity.
3.Make demands on God for the grace to walk in righteousness.

PRAYER: Lord, have mercy on me. Lead me away from things that keep me from You, and separate me from those things that hinder me from accessing Your glory, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

Overcoming Family Challenges (Part 1) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Overcoming Family Challenges (Part 1) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Topic: Overcoming Family Challenges (Part 1)

Dear Reader,

Peace and blessings to you! It is with joy unspeakable, full of glory, that I welcome you into the seventh month of the year. May it indeed be a month of perfection in your family life in Jesus name. All through this month, I shall be teaching on Overcoming Family Challenges. It is my prayer that at the end of these teachings, every issue of concern in your family life shall be turned to testimony.

There is no limit to the pleasures and blessings God can bring to all areas of your life; your family life inclusive. Success in your family life is God’s will for you but it does not come by chance, neither is it an accidental occurrence. It takes conscious, deliberate and calculated steps to enjoy successful family life.

Today, many are frustrated, unhappy, fed up because of several family challenges they are facing. As my husband would rightly say, it is scriptural to be challenged, but it is unscriptural to be defeated. If you are married and experiencing turbulence in your family life, all you need to do is apply the principles contained in God’s Word and the storm will cease. The Bible says in Joshua 1:8, This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

There are principles you must align with if you desire to overcome family challenges. Let me show you one of such principles.

Gratitude

Several homes today are experiencing dis-harmony, simply because they have not put the principle of gratitude to work in their homes. Remember I said success in your family life is a conscious and deliberate step. Some wives never appreciate their husband’s efforts, no matter what he does or how much he spends, it is just never enough. On the other hand, some husbands find it difficult to appreciate their wives’ inputs at home. No matter how much effort she puts into the smooth running of the home, he comes in from work and begins to find faults in all she has done, shouting and yelling at everybody. The woman soon becomes weary and feels she can never please him. Learn to say ‘Thank you’ for every little act of kindness, and see how exciting your marriage will become.

It is also necessary to appreciate the various inputs of those who live with you and lend a helping hand around the house. Even if you come home to discover that your house-help has done something wrong, don’t start yelling at her and calling her names. You can start by acknowledging the things she has done right, and then call her attention to the things not well done. When she does something well, learn to say Thank you. Never forget that good words are worth much more and cost little. You should also learn to say Thank you to your children when they do thank-worthy things. Remember, gratitude is what determines altitude.

To live a life of gratitude like Jesus, you need to accept Him as your Lord and personal Saviour by being born again. If you want to be born again, please pray this prayer with faith in your heart: Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for delivering me from sin and satan to serve the living God and thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.

Congratulations! If you prayed this simple prayer of faith with me, you are now born again and a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).

It’s a beautiful thing when you realize that you’re not a biological accident. You’re not here on this planet simply because a man and a woman slept together. When you see things from God’s perspective, you’d realize that a man and a woman had to sleep together because you had to be here. You’re here for a special purpose. You’re specially and specifically designed by God to fulfill a purpose.

Ephesians 2:10 – For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

In Jeremiah 1:4-5, we see that there were a lot of things that happened before you were conceived. There was a plan and it was deliberate. The knowledge of that should get you excited about your life when you realise that you’re not God’s after thought. Perhaps you were told that you were mistakenly conceived but when you come to the point where you realise that the highest intelligence planned your life, that’s a beautiful thing.

Psalm 139:13-16 tells us that we are God’s special masterpiece deliberately crafted for a reason. Nothing about you takes God by surprise because he knows the end. Many of us don’t know how special we are and how specially equipped we are to fulfill our purposes on this planet.

Marriage Is Still Cool by Pastor Sam Adeyemi

David in Psalms 8:3-8 realised that in the glory of all of God’s creations, the most valuable asset out of all is man. There’s nothing God created that is as sophisticated as us. Ephesians 2:10 shows us that we were not designed to live an ordinary life. We were not designed to be a victim of circumstances. God put you here for mastery.

How do we get to know how special we are? One recommendation is that we should be saved from the nature of sin. In Ephesians 2:8-9 we see that God saved us by His grace. We can’t take credit for it as it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done so none of us can boast about it. Salvation delivered us from the nature of sin. When Adam sinned, all of us sinned. Adam means mankind and his sinned automatically passed on everyone. If he was not given the freedom to choose what he would do, then he wasn’t created in the image of God. This is why God had to take on the nature of man, die on the cross because the wages of sin is death and go back to heaven thus making provision for everybody to be forgiven their sins and to have the nature of God back.

In Revelations 13:8 tells us that the lamb of God (Jesus) was slaughtered before the world was made. This is an idea of what happened in heaven long before Adam was created. He was already slaughtered which means then you and I were also seen but now with a new identity. So after His death and resurrection, it became possible for us to find our identity.

In Rom8: 28-30 we see that the moment we get God’s nature back, we receive forgiveness of sins and come back into alignment with God’s plans and purposes. Our greatest business on this planet is finding alignment with God’s plans and purposes and the first step is receiving forgiveness from sin. Once you become born again, you become a child of God, you receive a forgiveness of your sins, The next thing is glory; sharing God’s beauty, magnificence, wealth, and power.

 

Your destiny is not about you. Your life is not about you. Your life is too small to be the purpose of your life. Before helping other people you need to look at yourself.
Who are you? What capacities has God wired into you.
Who you think you are and who you think you’re not is what puts a cap on your capability. You may have been a no-body before, but now that your in Christ. In 2 Cor. 5:17, we see that the new “Us” is the one the world needs. As long as you see yourself as a crawler if a struggler like everybody else, you cannot help them. A slave cannot lead a slave out of slavery. It has to take someone that has experienced freedom is to know what freedom is and to lead people there.

The problem with us Christians is that many of us are mislabelling ourselves. It’s the problem our design. As human beings our destiny’s are tied to image as seen in Genesis 1:26. So no image, no dominion. All those pictures we see everyday, the people we meet with, the things they say, the reflection that they give us, the opinion they express about who we are are shaping our identity and they’re mis-shaping us. Nobody on this planet really knows who you are. It’s only the mastermind, the ultimate creativity and intelligence that put you together can tells us who you are.

In Matthew 6, Jesus asked His disciples the opinion of men about Him. They compared Him to people who were existing before. Then He asked who they themselves thought about God. Peter’s response was greeted with “flesh and blood did not reveal this to you”. In other words, you can only truly know God by revelation. You can also only know who you are by revelation. Don’t allow people to label you. Who you are was written from the foundation of the world. Jesus lived in this world in the authority of who He was. 2 Cor. 5:17 clearly talks about the old life that gives way for the new

1st John 5:4 tells us that what you believe is what you become. If you wait for circumstances to validate your identity, Satan will tweak things to make you feel less than who you are. You’re in a class all by yourself.

Sermon By Pastor E A Adeboye Abstain from every appearance of evil

I feel compelled to say some things to those that are young and up and coming ministers.
What I want to say is from the Bible:

1. There is nothing hid that shall not come to the open or made manifest. Mark 4:22

2. Sooner or later, your sins will find you out if you continue in sin under the guise of grace. Numbers 32:23

3. Abstain from every appearance of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:22.

2 Timothy 2:22

When you find yourself facing youthful lust? Flee; don’t say you’re highly anointed or something, ask Samson.

You may say I’m old fashioned, I agree.

I’ll never have a private secretary who’s a woman.

When a woman accuses you of something, nobody will listen to you whether you’re right or wrong; be wise!

I’m old fashioned, but I’m still surviving since I was ordained; it’s better to be old fashioned and live than modern and die.

Keys to Family Dominion (Part 3) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Topic: Keys to Family Dominion (Part 3)

Dear Reader,

Last week, I showed you how unity among family members fosters family dominion.

This week, our teaching centers on Rest! God assures believers of a place of rest in Him. He says you have been battered and wounded enough; thus, come unto Me and obtain rest for your soul. The Bible says: There remaineth, therefore, a rest to the people of God (Hebrews 4:9). That is, you can enjoy rest in your family life, career, business, finances, and children because a family that is restful is one that can exercise dominion.

You may ask, “Where is this place of rest, how do I get there and what does it take to get there?” These are the things I want to bring across to you. I pray that your eyes of understanding will be enlightened and every form of unrest in your family life will be destroyed in Jesus’ name!

A state of rest is a state of ease and tranquility. Jesus said: Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest… (Matthew 11:28-30). Rest is obtainable, but only in Christ. You have been battered by the happenings all around you. Jesus says that come and I will give you rest! No matter the mountain or how big the burden has been, Jesus, the Burden Bearer, invites you.

Pastor Faith Oyedepo

2 Chronicles 15:15 says: And all Judah rejoiced at the oath: for they had sworn with all their heart, and sought him with their whole desire; and he was found of them: and the Lord gave them rest round about. When Jesus carries your burden, you can be rest assured that the case is settled forever. All He requires of you is to come to Him in faith because He can do all things and never fails. Whatever causes you heartache and makes you sigh and shed secret tears, see Jesus walking by your side and lifting those burdens off you to give you liberty.

It is Christ’s absolute desire to give you rest in life. He said: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10). It is the devil that gives unrest; but Jesus, the Author of life says that if you come now to Him, He will give you rest.

As a family, you might have been experiencing failure, stress, and stagnation which have become a burden. For instance, you wake up every morning with no breakfast or lunch not in view; not because you are fasting, but because there is nothing to eat. All it takes is to come to Jesus, the Author of rest.

Some may be wondering who this Jesus really is; He is the Word of God made flesh and the water of life (Isaiah 55:1). Take refuge in the Word against all the odds of life and every form of unrest.

Are you bothered by your spouse’s ungodly actions or your child’s unruly behavior? All you have to do is to turn to the Word because there is no rest in any other place. True and absolute rest can only be found in the Word of God. Furthermore, genuine dominion only comes from a restful soul. It is in coming to Him that you have total rest. Come to Jesus today, dedicate your family to Him and hand over everything. He is able!

How do you come to Jesus? God’s Word says: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:9-10).

It doesn’t take more than this to have perfect rest and all-round dominion in your family. If you want this rest, then you should say this prayer of faith: Dear Lord, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Now I know I am born again!

Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for you at Calvary. Please call or write, and share your testimonies with me through contact@faithoyedepo.org or 08141320204, 07026385437.

Compete with Yourself by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Topic: Compete with Yourself

Excellence is being truly the best at something, outstandingly successful. It is surpassing others in some good qualities. It is dong a common thing uncommonly well. Excellence is delivering first-class quality in everything you do.

Be Determined by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Ecclesiastes 10:10 (KJV) If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct.

If you don’t have a sharpened skill, you may have to put in more strength. The quality of your life is determined by your commitment to excellence. Seek to improve on what you’ve learnt. School will inform you but personal development will transform you. Maximize your potential. There is something you can do that you have not yet done. Challenge yourself to be better than your previous result. Compete with yourself; not people.

God is a God of excellence. When He created all things in Gen. 1, the Bible recorded that it was very good; that means it was excellent. When Jesus came to the earth, Mark 2:12 recorded that people were amazed at Him.

Mark 2:12b -…insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, we never saw it on this fashion.

To be excellent, you must learn to never give up. That someone is opposing you does not mean you should give up. Do not look at the Goliath; look at the crown after the Goliath. That things are not showing does not mean things are not working. To easily give up means to not get to the top.

Hebrews 10:36a (KJV) For ye have need of patience.

You must embrace self-discipline to excel. You may not like what you are doing but you should continue to get what you want. You easily excel when you have a good character. Pay the price to build character. Shallowness of character leads to pride, greed and abuse of power.

Character is having the will to do the right thing even when it is hard.

Philippians 3:8b (KJV) For whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.

Challenge yourself, improve continuously from your present state and excel.

God bless you.
