THE CHURCH WILL BECOME THE ENVY OF THE ENTIRE WORLD.
THE CHURCH WILL BE SETTING THE PACE FOR THE WORLD TO FOLLOW IN THIS END TIME. THE WORLD WILL BE LINING UP TO LEARN FROM THE CHURCH.
ALL THE KINGDOMS UNDER HEAVEN SHALL BE GIVEN TO THE SAINTS OF THE MOST HIGH.
IT IS A DIVINE AGENDA, NO POLICY OF ANY NATION, FIRST WORLD OR THIRD WORLD CAN CHANGE IT.
OBEDIENCE IS YOUR FLIGHT TO THE TOPMOST TOP IN LIFE.
– Bishop David Oyedepo on UNDERSTANDING THE BREAKTHROUGH POWER OF STEWARDSHIP 6 at Midweek Communion Service 26th July 2023 Canaanland || Part B
Stop rationalising instructions; obey. There is no living soul in this Church that will claim he cannot get 4 souls. There is none! “You know it’s not convenient for me, you know I have a lot of things to do…” (They say). Your errand boy standing before you has seen 3447 souls saved on his personal outreach this season. There is nothing God says that does not suit me. “We don’t know what they are using” I am using obedience. Selfless obedience, unreserved obedience. Yet I am to sit down and serve the table, the spiritual menu for the Church worldwide. I am to sit down and serve the table for Covenant Hour of Prayer, for Midweek Services, for Specialized Services.
How many people in this world are as busy as I am by grace?
Stop that! Your heart is not there. Obedience doesn’t make any meaning to you. Between now and Saturday, anybody can get four if he is interested. What are you doing? “Well, that is Papa. If not winning souls, what should the pastors be doing? All the pastors and deacons in this Church are they not enough? I won’t win any souls.” Well done.
I ministered in a storehouse that had no ventilation, ministered in the open air, ministered under that grass Church in Kaduna, now see what God is doing. There is no time I stand on this place that nations don’t hook up. Not just our Church, nations!
Enjoy obedience. All these mechanical things, it doesn’t fly. In the name of Jesus, these few days remaining will change your story, if you are interested. The Lord said to me years ago “My son, there is a place for you on top if you are interested. I said Lord, I am interested. He said, “Then whatever I tell you to do, do it.” So what is your flight to the topmost top in life? Obedience. 1984, it will be forty years next year.
It is not prayer, it is not fasting, it is obedience. God said it and I believe it, that settles it. My prayer again is that no one will miss his place by treating God’s instructions with levity. You won’t miss your place of dignity. You better wake up.
Obedience brought us to Canaanland, not revelation, not knowledge, revelation won’t bring anybody here. You mean you left town and came to the forest? By what revelation? No! Instruction! Obedience!
We landed here in a no man’s land and then the world saw that the people of God were gathered together. We access the world in a place where we should be lost by obedience.
Stewardship will not deliver without obedience. Obedience is what makes stewardship profitable. I am speaking to sons and daughters of the Most High God tonight, fasten your seatbelt. Don’t toy with your number 4, it is your primary test of obedience for the hour. What am I getting from it? Your disobedience cannot cancel the effect of my obedience. Neither can my obedience add value to you in your disobedience. Each one’s obedience will make him and each one’s disobedience will do otherwise. Your obedience will not make my obedience work, so don’t think you are doing something to bless me. Your unbelief can make my faith of no effect. It is to everybody according to his faith. Everybody will answer for himself.
I told you this several times, God spoke to me “My son, you are absolutely responsible for the outcome of your life”. Nobody to blame, nobody to question, you are absolutely responsible for the outcome of your life. Not even the devil, you can’t question the devil. Your obedience to the truth renders the devil absolutely helpless. Psalm 23:1-6.
When the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He will prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies, they will be looking because my obedience has rendered them helpless. Stop blaming the devil for everything my friend. Where was he when you said you accepted Christ as your Lord and Saviour? Why couldn’t he stop you? You chose to be saved when you heard the Word, you believed it and then you got born again. Where was the devil when you got born again?
UNDERSTANDING THE BREAKTHROUGH POWER OF KINGDOM STEWARDSHIP (Philippians 2:5-9).
We have already established the fact that the end time Church is ordained a breakthrough Church. The world will be lining up to learn from the Church.
The Church will be setting the pace for the world to follow. Micah 4:1-2. Many nations shall come and say ‘Let’s put our pride aside, this thing is working for them.
Their small-scale industries are bigger than our own major industries. See their capacity, see their enthronement. Let’s go so we don’t die in pride. Let’s go so they can teach us the ways of God that is making them happen in their lives’.
That is the end time Church. You are to be envied by the world around you. The world is to learn from you how to make things happen. Jesus is coming back for a reigning Church.
A Church of Giants. Psalm 87:1-7. It is a divine agenda, no policy of any nation, first world or third world can change it. The Church will become the envy of the entire world. Whether they call them first world or second world or no world according to heaven’s agenda.
All the kingdoms under heaven shall be given to the saints of the Most High. Daniel 7:27. So it is a divine agenda, it is not a thought to hike up people. He will sit down there until the Church is ruling. Psalm 110:1-3.
