Pastor David Oyedepo Jnr on “UNCOVERING THE ROOT OF FAITH THAT WORKS PART 4



GOD KNOWS NO IMPOSSIBILITY. IMPOSSIBILITY IS A HUMAN VOCABULARY, IT IS NOT A DIVINE LANGUAGE.

GOD OPERATES IN THE REALM OF ABSOLUTE POSSIBILITY AND IT IS FAITH THAT CAUSES US TO ENTER INTO THAT REALM.

WHERE THE FORCE OF FAITH IS AT WORK, IT IS CONTRARY TO INTELLECT MANY TIMES.

FAITH IS ABOUT ENGAGING GOD AND GOD CANNOT BE CONFINED TO THE LIMITS OF MAN.

WHERE FAITH LACKS PROOF, THAT FAITH IS FAKE.

THERE IS NOTHING THE devil CAN BUILD UP THAT FAITH CANNOT PULL DOWN. EVERY TIME FAITH IS AT WORK, THE devil IS A NON-FACTOR.

CHALLENGES ARE COMMON TO ALL MEN BUT VICTORY IS COMMON TO MEN OF FAITH.

– Pastor David Oyedepo Jnr on “UNCOVERING THE ROOT OF FAITH THAT WORKS PART 4” at Wonder Sunday Service First Sunday Service Faith Tabernacle Canaanland || Part A

Our Father this morning we have come with voices full of gratitude and appreciation, we have come to give all the glory to you for all that you have done, all of the testimonies and visitations, for working salvation in our midst, we have come to say we are grateful. Here we are this morning on the last day of this prophetic season and according to your own wisdom, you always package the best for last.

Therefore Lord this morning, give everyone a package for life. You have called this day our Wonder Sunday Service, let none of us depart without our package of wonders. Send us your wonders stirring Word this morning and let our lives be transformed in Jesus’ precious name we have prayed.

Our line of teaching for our Sunday services has been UNCOVERING THE ROOT OF THE FAITH THAT WORKS and we are taking the concluding part of this series in this service. The good news for you and me this morning is that as the Lord has spoken, today in our midst the Lord will do wonders.

We have established all through this month that one of the fundamental characteristics of faith is that it is proof producing. It is evidential. Hebrews 11:1. Where there is no evidence, faith is fake. Where faith lacks proof, that faith is fake. John 10:37.

So the evidence of our connectivity as far as faith is concerned is determined by the proof we command. It is important for us to be reminded also like we have been told that when faith comes alive, victory comes along.

In other words, the presence of faith is the guarantee of victory. There is nothing the devil can build up that faith cannot pull down. Every time faith is at work, the devil is a non-factor. Our faith, therefore is what determines the outcome of our lives. We are not products of circumstances, we are products of faith.

The definition of our destination is determined by faith. Where faith is available, you discover that manifestation is obtainable. So faith becomes a vital necessity in the adventure of life. It is not our opposition that determines our position, it is our faith that does. Matthew 11:12. Where faith is available, oppositions are nullified.

Whatever stands as an opposition to anyone’s destiny shall be nullified in the name of Jesus.

It’s true that challenges are common to all. In fact, the Bible makes us understand that in 1 Corinthians 10:13. So challenges are common to all men but victory is common to men of faith. Where faith is available, victory is guaranteed. 2 Corinthians 2:4. Wherever faith is available, you are guaranteed the outcome of victory.

The question we have been trying to answer all through this month is: What is Faith? This morning we look briefly at three important descriptions.

1. Faith is not a religious ideology, it is a spiritual mystery.

1 Timothy 3:9. So faith is described in scripture as a mystery. When you talk about an ideology, you are talking about a system or combination of ideas that form a theory but faith is not theoretical, faith is practical. It is a mystery that provokes open proof. We are told from the scriptures that a mystery simply describes a hidden truth that commands open proof. Colossians 1:26. Manifest does not only mean that this mystery is shown to us but that this mystery makes a show of us. It provokes proof.

It is shown to His saints and makes a show of His saints. 

For somebody hearing my voice this morning, the mystery of faith will make a show of your life. That means that even though it is hidden in nature, the evidence of it cannot be hidden in the life of a carrier. Where you find a man of faith, the proof around his life is evidence of the mystery that he carries. I believe that someone here this morning by the quickening of your faith, your life will become a mystery to behold. Your life will become a mystery to behold in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This is so important. So faith is not an ideology, rather it is a mystery.

2. Faith is not an intellectual fact but it is a spiritual force.

Faith is not an intellectual fact, faith is a spiritual force. This is why you cannot subject faith to intellectual arguments. Where the force of faith is at work, it many times is contrary to intellect. 2 Kings 7:1-2. Please hear this: when it comes to faith, faith is about engaging God and God cannot be confined to the limits of man. God is not a man that is the Word of the Lord. Numbers 23:19. What you equate with men, you can not equate to God. 

The limitations you impose on men you cannot impose on God. Ephesians 3:20. God is not a man. Mark 10:27. When it comes to God, He knows no impossibility. Impossibility is a human vocabulary. It is not a divine language.

When it comes to God you cannot use the language of impossibility because it does not exist with God. God operates in the realm of absolute possibility and it is faith that causes us to enter into that realm. So don’t subject your faith to the limitations of your intellect. It is not an intellectual force but it is a spiritual force.
