I WAS NEVER AT THE BIRTH OF ANY OF OUR CHILDREN BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN PRESSING INTO GOD’s KINGDOM
IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO LEARN, DON’T COME TO SHILOH
PASTORS, BISHOPS, ARCHBISHOPS, ARCHPOPES, DON’T COME TO SHILOH AS AN OFFICIAL, WHAT YOU NEED IS AN ENCOUNTER FOR A CHANGE OF STORY
I WAS PART OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE PREACHING PROSPERITY BEFORE I SAW IT
STOP CRACKING JOKES WITH DESTINY
WE HAVE A DOUBLE-EDGED BLESSING THIS SEASON, MY BELOVETH SON [BISHOP DAVID ABIOYE] HERE AND MYSELF HAD BRAND NEW BABIES
IT’S BETTER I OPPRESS YOU THAN THE DEVIL OPPRESS YOU. IF I PRESS YOU TO DO THE RIGHT, YOU WILL CELEBRATE IN FUTURE
THE CHANGES YOU AND I HAVE TILL NOW IS A FUNCTION OF THE LEVEL OF LIGHT THAT WE HAVE SEEN. IF YOU SEE MORE GLORY, YOU NEED MORE LIGHT
WHAT YOU WILL BE TESTIFYING TILL THE END OF TIME WILL OPEN UP TO YOU AT SHILOH
SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING IS WHAT DEFINES THE LEVEL OF RESULT OUR FAITH CAN COMMAND. NO ONE EVER DOUBTS WHAT HE CAN SEE AND THE BRIGHTER YOU SEE, THE STRONGER YOUR FAITH
SHILOH IS NOT A PRAYER COLLECTION CENTER. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO LEARN, SHILOH IS NOT YOUR PLACE. IT’S A CENTER OF LIGHT
THE KINGDOM OF GOD OPERATES ON KEYS, REVELATION KEYS. THAT YOU HAVE PhD IN DOOR SCIENCE WON’T OPEN THAT DOOR, YOU NEED THE KEY
– Bishop David Oyedepo – GETTING SET FOR SHILOH AS INDIVIDUALS
Covenant Hour of Prayer December 3rd 2022.
Shall we lift up our two hands and give God thanks for accepting our thanksgiving this morning, magnify Him one more time. We celebrate You Jesus, there is no one like You, thank You for making happen all that we have prayed since the preparation of Shiloh began, thank You for confirming Your Word from the first day to the last. Thank You for granting every one of us an encounter of a lifetime in Jesus precious name we have given thanks.
Jesus, thank You for another Shiloh. Thank You for another wave of confirmations, thank You for another wave of encounters with Your Word. Thank You for another wave of signs and wonders, receive our thanks in the name of Jesus. So shall it be.
The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD. Preparation is vital to the responses we experience from God. May each one’s heart be duly set for his or her portion at Shiloh 2022.
Give the LORD a big hand of praise and get seated please.
GETTING SET FOR SHILOH AS INDIVIDUALS is the brief exhortation this morning. Luke 16:16. You don’t press, you remain oppressed. Every man presses, every man presses! Woe unto them that are at ease in Zion, every man presses, every man presses, every man presses, every man presses, we live in a pleasure sick world where every demand is viewed as inconvenience.
Don’t oppress me, it’s better I oppress you than the devil oppress you.
If I press you to do the right, you will celebrate in future. Every man presses, there are too many chocolate believers around the world today, “I can’t get a room in a hotel, I can’t attend” who is forcing you? “I don’t have time, I have somethings to look after” you have been looking after things since January, what did you get from it? Every man presses, every man presses, every man presses. It just occurred to me this morning, I was never at the birth of any of our children, pressing, pressing. Every man presses, every man presses.
Pressing on the mountain, pressing in the valley, pressing for more of God, every man presses. No man can attend lecture for someone else to pass an exam.
Come unto me, all you that need rest in any of your life. Come with meekness o because I am meek and lowly in heart, don’t come as somebody who authored the Bible before they say one verse “I know that one” that’s why you didn’t know anything, if you know we will see it. Every true revelation changes people’s story. Stop! Stop guess work. 2 Corinthians 3:18.
The changes you and I have till now is a function of the level of light that we have seen. If you see more glory, you need more light.
Some come, they are not coming to learn, they are coming to see if the preacher is preaching well. They are coming to see and mark the grammar of speakers, so they return with grammar. Every man presses!
I was part of the young people preaching prosperity, before I saw it I went to press on a three day fast ” God what is the secret of Kingdom prosperity” E sinmi agbaja o. Stop cracking joke with destiny. Every man presses. “What is covenant highways, O God? Get me on this covenant highway in this event”. I was never qualified to lead an opening prayer in Hagin’s ministry and I didn’t look for it. I was pressing for light and I was catching it. Don’t come as an official sir, you just waste your time “I am official, I am official.” Official of what?
What you need is an encounter for a change of story. Every man presses, every man: Pastor, Bishops, Archbishops, Archpopes, every man presses, founder, founderess, every man presses into it, you don’t press, you stay oppressed. That woman pressed through the crowd in her weakness, in her weakness and in spite of all the security heavyweight led by Peter she was able to touch the hem of His garment. She pressed!
No way to go in, they pressed through the roof “we must get in there” The man said get me there, let me drop if I drop and die, He will raise me up. Mark 2:2. Strive to enter in by the narrow gate for broad is the way that leads to destruction, but few that be that find and embrace the straight and narrow gate. Church Gate. You can’t get on this highway and be stranded.
We have a double-edged blessing this season, my beloveth son here and myself just had brand new grandbabies. Pressing, pressing! Have I done one thing else other than preparation for Shiloh for weeks? Every man presses! All these chocolate ministries around, you better wake up, they will dissuade you and derail you, you don’t know God. Every man presses into it.
No one writes an exam for another and we will keep writing an exam till the end of time because if you don’t write exam, you can’t get change of class. It came to pass that day God did test Abraham, exam is continuous, lecture is continuous. It’s continuous assessment, you know! People are failing and repeating the same class, repeating repeating forever because they have not learnt better but at Shiloh as the LORD lives what you will be testifying till the end of time will open up to you! By your readiness and preparedness to learn at the feet of Jesus.
No one can sit an interview for another, each one will have to answer for himself. You can’t say “Look I am to attend that interview but my wife since the two of us are one flesh, you go ahead and attend for me.” They won’t let her enter.
In the same vein, no one can have an encounter on behalf of another. No one can have an encounter on behalf of another. Not even Jethro shared the encounter of Moses in the burning bush. We must stop deceiving ourselves. James 1:22. Theoretical preparation will lead to gallant failure. Get set to meet your God. There is something awaiting each of us at Shiloh, something that money can never buy is awaiting us. James 1:22-25. We must awake from our sleep and allow Christ to give us light.
Husband don’t send your wife and go and collect light for you, you will fail the exam. Wife don’t send your husband “I am a housewife” You want to be a house failure? Go for light! Go for light! No one shall be a failure here.
As the seed of Abraham, God deals with us as individuals not as groups or families. He deals with us as individuals. Galatians 3:29, Isaiah 51:2, John 8:39.
No one’s unbelief can make another man’s faith void. Since he doesn’t believe what I am doing, I better stop it. No one’s victory can be the reason for another man’s defeat. 1 John 5:4. No one’s prosperity can be the reason for another man’s poverty. Habakkuk 2:4.
When we started the mystery of the communion, I mean, it was war up in the north but now everyone takes communion including the attackers of that time because they didn’t see it not that they meant it. When the prosperity message came alive in our country, we were privileged to be among the people leading it by divine mandate not by how to collect money from people.
See how that has dramatically changed the story of the Church in Nigeria. Yes! There could be abuses, just like you have genuine currency, you have counterfeit. There is no method you can use in the world not to have counterfeit currency, there is no method.
The people working there that have left, they carried the technology along to start reproducing it, Amen! The fact that there is counterfeit means the genuine exists. You can’t counterfeit a currency that does not exist, what are you going to use to buy it? Habakkuk 2:4, Matthew 9:27-29. But spiritual understanding is what defines the level of result our faith can command. No one ever doubts what he can see and the brighter you see, the stronger your faith.
Spiritual understanding is just being able to see what God is saying, “what is God saying here? What is God saying here?” Being able to see and the clearer you see, the faster the delivery. Jeremiah 1:12.
So God has set up beacons of light in His Church, they call them Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers, for the perfecting of the faith of the saints so you can come to their own frequency, their level of operation. Ephesians 4:11-13.
Hagin taught me, I began manifesting the impact of his teachings while he still lived. Copeland taught me and he taught me well, I am walking in the same realm of prosperity by grace. You better listen to what we are saying now, please listen it’s for your good. It’s for your good. Jeremiah 3:15-16. I mean you become a representative of heaven through light you encountered from His beacons of light in the body.
If you are not willing to learn, Shiloh is not your place. It is not a prayer collection center, it’s a center of light, Amen? There is no way to command dominion in the midst of darkness outside light and Shiloh is a gathering where God confers His people with dominion and without light you can’t do anything to move darkness but when light comes, darkness bows. From after this Shiloh, every darkness tormenting any area of anyone’s life will fizzle out on their own.
Someone was here, he fled from Ghana to Nigeria to run away from the family idol that is killing them, you are 35 it kills you if you are not worshipping it and got saved here and sat down in this place during spiritual week of emphasis, heard the first day “every evil that followed you here, you will never see them anymore” the third day, he said “I pointed in his direction” and what happened? The idol disappeared from the shrine, they looked for it, they couldn’t find it.
Light came, idol fled. Every siege of evil around anyone’s life or family by encounters with light, at Shiloh you see them no more again forever.
Now, it’s a place of allocation of our inheritance and it’s allocated through revelation. 2 Peter 1:3. But it’s transmitted through knowledge, revelation knowledge, so that’s why we emphasize “see come over to Shiloh. It’s a place of encounter with the Word that changes the story of men.” But come with meekness don’t come as “I know everything” come with meekness and then you will return with testimonies. This is what Shiloh is all about.
We are set to access and return home with the tables of the covenant that will make our adventures on earth press-button kind; pam-pam, this is the issue, these are the keys to deal with them, 1 2 3 4.
Can I have you say with me “I must return with the tables of the covenant that will put me in command in the affairs of life. I must return with the tables of the covenant that will put me in command of the affairs of life.” Well, maybe you will be able to take it but I have never asked God “bless me with money”.
You don’t have the key, you are crying, it won’t open the door. Get the key! Get hold of the key, don’t pose as if you have the key, the door is not opening so where is the key?
My grandmother forgot me in the room, many many years ago as a kid and went to the market and market day in the village is from morning to evening. There was no illumination, no cross-ventilation, I was angry, I was hitting the door, kicking the door, I had bruises, when I git tired I slept.
Life without a key is an adventure in frustration. The Kingdom of God operates on keys, revelation keys! That you have PhD in door science won’t open that door, you need the key. You know door science? Amen, Praise God! That you are the ones who built the door as a carpenter won’t open it, you need the key. You are even the one who fixed the key, mmmm? It won’t open, you need it. You need the one that opens it. In the name of Jesus, no door of grace, no door of glory, no door of honour shall be shut against anyone anymore.
Revelation does not require announcement, it announces itself. Amen? John 1:4-5. Revelation does not need announcement, all these shaking the head and sweating is not revelation, if it doesn’t show, it’s not light. Light always shows, it does not require announcement.
You didn’t enter this room wondering whether there was light or not, light says “hey! I am here” you say “I agree, I can’t argue”. Stand to your feet.
How many are set for Shiloh? How many will see this Shiloh as their own Shiloh? How many will vow not to send somebody to come and stand in for him? Your days of prayer collection, prayer project is over!
Get the key, you will be thanking God as you triumph from glory to glory. Lift up your two hands everybody, let’s have the choir. Now, we are going to dance the realities of the encounters at Shiloh. We are going to celebrate Him because He never fails, He never can deny Himself.
You can always trust Him. Give Him thanks, if it’s your Shiloh, give Him thanks for what you must see and return with at Shiloh. What you must see and return with at Shiloh , what you must see and return with at Shiloh, what you must see and return with at Shiloh, what you must see and return with at Shiloh, give Him thanks for it.
Give Him glory for it, all over the world at this time, celebrate God! My Shiloh is finally here, it was somebody else’s Shiloh last year, my Shiloh is finally here!
My Shiloh is finally here, my Shiloh is finally here, my Shiloh is finally here. Thank You Jesus! In Jesus precious name!
