THE CONTENT OF THE BIBLE HAS NO RESPECT FOR ANYBODY’S OPINION
WE KEEP CELEBRATING WHAT WE KNOW, THAT’S WHAT DETERMINES WHERE WE ARE
EVERY TRUE REVELATION OF THE TRUTH IS A SPIRITUAL BREEDING GROUND FOR A REVOLUTION
FOR 41 YEARS WE HAVE NEVER ATTEMPTED TO BORROW
NO APOSTOLIC PRAYER CAN BE A SUBSTITUTE FOR AN ENCOUNTER
FOR EVERY PROVISION OF THE KINGDOM, THERE ARE CONDITIONS FOR DELIVERY
MANY KNOW THE PROMISES BUT ARE NOT INTERESTED IN THE CONDITIONS
GOD DOES NOT ONLY RULE THE WORLD BY HIS WORD, THE WORD RULES HIM
– Bishop David Oyedepo at SHILOH 2022 COVENANT HIGHWAYS Opening Encounter Night Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland Part B
The content of that book has no respect for anybody’s opinion. It’s a popular opinion, it doesn’t change it, “Heaven and earth shall pass away but My Word shall not pass away”.
He settled the heaven forever, nobody can unsettle it.
– again, my prayer is that God will show us what we don’t know.
You see, we keep celebrating what we know, that’s what determines where we are.
To move further, we must know further, we must find out more about Him. Any stage of this meeting, I’m sure is fit for a close.
Every true revelation, because tonight I’m speaking on the revelation covenant, what it takes to access revelation and manifest its proofs.
Every true revelation of the truth is a spiritual breeding ground for a revolution. Every genuine revelation of the truth is a spiritual breeding ground for a revolution, a dramatic change of story. I call it a breeding ground because it doesn’t happen in one day, it’s a breeding ground for a revelation. Isaiah 60:1-3. Isaiah 60:8.
A plane does not just take off, ‘voom’, my God. It first taxes and then get to a particular temperature, hit the runway and then up in the air. You will see it on the ground but the flying capacity is in it, it’s a breeding ground for a revolution.
One of my sons here was telling me in Kaduna in those days, he said, “stop giving and you will be surprised that nothing stops” and a family met him and said, “we actually stopped giving and things started going down for us but everything was still going on for the Church”.
Every revelation is a spiritual breeding ground for a revolution. I saw that God has a running budget for all His projects on the earth. He wouldn’t entrust it to a man in case the man runs away. Every revelation is a spiritual breeding ground for a revolution.
You don’t see it now does not mean it’s not there, if you truly encounter it. Every truth encountered today will show tomorrow and it’ll keep showing in degrees, shining brighter and brighter to the perfect day. It’ll keep showing in phases.
I told our friends, fellow brethren in the power house that all that we have till you die cannot run this ministry, so you’re not a leader in this power house so that you can give offering.
Some, I believe got angry. I caught a light and I needed everybody to know, “now, listen my friend, God is depending on you, rather we are depending on God”. See where such revelation has brought us to now, 40 years ago, that light broke out. 40 years after, it’s showing in degrees, phase by phase by phase.
I’ve never needed to be encouraged to walk the covenant practice, never. We have never attempted to borrow, encounter, 41 years ago, encounter.
– may this be a mountain of true encounters with God through His Words for everyone of us.
No Apostolic prayer can be a substitute for an encounter. I can’t pray for you to prosper, you know, when people start praying prosperity, I’m bothered.
He said, “as a man takes a seed and sows, he should go and sleep and wake, the seed will grow”, but you don’t sow and you’re praying, what is the prayer for? Will that prayer cultivate the prayer? Will it sow the seed? “Father, all the glory that I give you”, no, lift up your seed, “thank you Jesus for the opportunity to be blessed, Amen, sit down”. But to now preach one bucket-full preaching is not necessary.
Have I ever prayed, “God, bless me”, ask Him. Finances? No, the covenant works on its own.
You may have to pray and fast to see it but when you see it and you keep walking in it, it keeps working on its own. “You should sleep and wake and the seed should grow, you know not how”, it’ll grow in phases, don’t let them mock you, just keep going.
– may this inoculation lead to everyone’s transformation
The world is in a hurry will take its turn. You sow your seed today, you don’t go to the farm tomorrow to go and harvest and they have different gestation periods. Cocoa will not produce fruit for you until 5 years, when it starts producing, it’s for 50 years coming.
Tomato will grow next month, you eat it and that’s the end of it. It’s all about life.
You know, the endtime Church will be riding majestically on the truth. He said, “ride on prosperously and in majesty because of truth and righteousness and meekness and the Lord will teach you terrible things”, it is insight, the endtime Church will be reiging by insight not by struggle. Wisdom is better than strength. We serve a covenant keeping God.
Every revelation of the truth is God simply saying, “I have made this provision for you and these are the things to do to take delivery”.
For every provision of the Kingdom, there are conditions for delivery.
We are so interested in the provisions but we’re not committed to the conditions and all we’re doing is begging God to do what His Word will not permit Him to do.
– from henceforth, no one shall remain a crying baby.
The Lord said to me years ago because He gave me some access by grace to the place of covenant knowledge very early. There’s a place on top for you if you’re interested. Deuteronomy 28:1.
Then came Rhema from it, “son, there’s a place for you on top if you’re interested”, I said, “I’m interested”. He said, “whatever He tells you to do, do it”. It’s not just being interested, the only way to get there is doing whatever He tells you to do, do whatever the Word says to do, you won’t do it, you won’t get there.
1984, some 38 years ago. My son of two eyes, can you make one to look up and one to look down. Psalm 34:5, “any time you’re looking up to man, never claim to be looking up to me, but if you fix your eyes on me, you’ll never be ashamed”, covenant keeping God.
“My son, my prosperity plan is not a promise, it doesn’t answer to prayers, it doesn’t answer to fasting, my prosperity plan is a covenant, until your part is played, I am not committed”. I have come across many fine prosperity teachers who are wallowing in poverty. They have taught many people into the high places but there’s no change in their story. Are there not touts at the airport that get you people on board who have never seen the inside of a plane? It’s not a promise, you can’t preach your way into it.
You can’t use connection into it. You can’t use receiving into it, you use giving to access and flow in it.
If you eat your fruit with the seed, that’s all, it won’t show tomorrow, so those who only receive, they don’t experience true prosperity, they’re always waiting to receive.
Somebody asked me, “what do you do between the time you give and when you receive?” I said, “I’ve never thought about it, you’re the only one telling me now. I should sleep and wake and the seed should grow, he knows not how”.
Does the farmer go to the farm in the night to find out whether the seed is growing? No, he’s asleep.
These things are real, they are so real and tangible and they’re open and available to anybody. He said, “I lay before you life and death”, anytime you don’t choose the truth, you have chosen trial and defeat.
– you will never choose trial or defeat again in your life.
Because everything we do here is all about the Word, the tables of the covenant.
What is God set to do to get us across to what He has promised?
Many know the promises but are not interested in the conditions and so they keep begging God to do what His Word will not allow Him to do. God is ruled by His Word. He does not only rule the world by His Word, the Word rules Him. He’s a covenant keeping God, there are things He’d never do no matter who is begging Him until you do what He has asked you to do.
Psalm 37:25. Most prayers are beggarly prayers.
– that’s no more you.
It’s time to press for the Word.
