SHILOH IS NOT ABOUT BUYING NEW CLOTHS, IT IS NOT AN ANNIVERSARY, JUST GET YOUR HEART SET
GOD DOES NOT LOVE ANYHOW, IT IS THE DOCTRINE OF devils.
GOD SAID “I LOVE THEM THAT LOVE ME”
WE ARE IN FOR SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY AT SHILOH AND YOU SHALL NOT MISS YOUR PORTION
MANY WILL RETURN FROM SHILOH WITH ‘HEAVY WEIGHT’ HONOUR
I DON’T HAVE A PERFECT LIFE BUT I HAVE A PERFECT HEART GOD IS TALKING ABOUT AND THAT’S THE SPRING BOARD FOR A PERFECT LIFE.
IT WILL ALWAYS REQUIRE HIGH LEVEL SPIRITUAL PREPARATION TO MAKE THE MOST OF ANY DIVINE VISITATION SUCH AS SHILOH.
TO RETURN WITH ANSWERED PRAYERS, WE MUST SANCTIFY OURSELVES INTENTIONALLY SO, GENUINELY SO, HEARTILY SO.
WE MUST HAVE TO REPENT OF OUR SINS TO CLEAR THE BARRIERS ON THE PATH OF ANSWERS TO OUR PRAYERS AND SHILOH IS A MOUNTAIN OF ANSWERED PRAYERS
WE ARE IN FOR SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY AT SHILOH AND YOU SHALL NOT MISS YOUR PORTION
– Bishop David Oyedepo || PREPARE TO MEET THY GOD || Covenant Hour of Prayer || 7th November, 2022.
Hallelujah! Lit up your two hands everyone and give God thanks for answered prayers this morning.

Praise the Lord I’m more than a Conqueror..
Congratulations. Give the Lord a big hand of Praise and please you may be seated.
I know we are in for something extraordinary at Shiloh.
I have been seeing such waves of the Spirit coming across this place at Shiloh 2022. You shall not miss your portion.
It will always require high level Spiritual preparation to make the most of any divine visitation such as Shiloh. Exodus 19:10, God was coming down to visit the people and said to Moses; “Go unto the people and sanctify them today and tomorrow and let them wash their clothes.” In Verse 11; “And be ready against the third day: for the third day the Lord will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.”
Every divine visitation will require adequate Spiritual preparation.
And the Lord appeared again unto Samuel at Shiloh, so, it’s a place of appearance, it’s a place of divine encounters and it’s what we must have to prepare for. We must have to prepare for it. The depth of our preparation is what will determine the dimension of manifestations that each one will be entitled to.
Preparing for an exam for a Student is not that easy but the outcome brings a smile. It brings a smile. Those who hate to be prepared, they just go int sighing and sorrows, for defeat and failure which is not caused by the devil but for lack of preparation, lack of the required preparation.
God is coming down to our midst and He said prepare to meet thy God. He’s not just coming to visit anybody. “Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.” – Amos 4:12
Shiloh 2022 promises to launch this Church and all participants to the highways of life bringing about things that eyes have not seen nor ears heard nor entered the heart of any man and for that reason we need adequate preparation.
I was studying the first space station that Russia launched into space and I saw the intensity of the the preparation of those Astronaut. Intensity, hours unending because they’re going to where there’s no day or night. I saw that in 2002 in preparing, in preparation towards em, the takeoff, I mean, the faculty advance for our pioneer staff. Intense!
You know driving a car doesn’t require as much as flying a plane and flying a plane does not require as much as going into Space. So they call the on driving a Motor driver, they call the one flying, a Pilot and they call the one going into Space, an Astronaut.
They’re different names and the preparations differ. The preparations differ. If you are not adequately prepared and you are floating in Spirit, oriyami o, you want to come down, there’s no way to come down. Praise God.
Our exhortation this week is captioned “Prepare to meet thy God.” Exodus 19:10 and 11. The glory of God will only come down in response to our preparation. The glory of a Student will come down in response to his required preparation for an examination.
It’s not about you know the Teacher and the Teacher likes you, that doesn’t answer anything. Your Father can be the proprietor of that School and you still fail. Preparation, preparation, no one can prepare for another.
You want to encounter His glory, prepare.
Sanctify themselves, sanctify them today, tomorrow, let them wash their clothes, I won’t wash for them, let them wash their clothes for on the third day, nothing dirty will be allowed when they appear.
We have been running 3 Scriptures all over, 2 Timothy 2:19-21 – “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure,” on all issues, including preparing to meet your God. “Having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His and let everyone that name to the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and earth; some to honour, some to dishonour.”
Many will return from Shiloh with heavy weight honour. May each one of us be counted worthy of it.
But if a man purge himself from these things that don’t please God, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, suitable for the master’s use and prepared unto every good work. So the honour that will come out of it is a function of our preparation, our Spiritual preparation in the area of sanctification.
Sanctify them today, tomorrow, not memorize Scriptures. Sanctify them. Let those who want to encounter my glory and honour sanctify themselves, purge themselves, purify themselves to have encounters with me.
For instance, we must have to repent of our sins to clear the barriers on the path of answers to our prayers and Shiloh is a mountain of answered prayers. You saw Hannah came into Shiloh and poured her heart unto God and God visited her and Samuel was born and five other heavy men came after him.
But, “if I hide iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me”, David said in Psalm 66:18. But now verily God has heard me, He has hearkened to the voice of my prayer because I repented of those things. God’s hand is not short that He cannot save, His ears are not heavy that He cannot hear but our iniquities have separated between us and God so that He will not hear us;
To return with answered prayers, we must sanctify ourselves intentionally so, genuinely so, heartily so.
For if we say we have not sinned when we have sinned then we deceive ourselves, the truth is not in us but if we confess our sins, He’s faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Answers to prayers are not automatic, they place a demand of repentance on those who desire answers to their prayers. Therefore, our heart must be prepared to meet with God to experience answers to our prayers from heaven.
For the preparation of the heart is what determines the answers from the Lord; Proverbs 16:1.
In Isaiah 30, “And who is this that engage his heart to seek unto God”.
Jeremiah 30 and verse 21; And their nobles shall be of themselves, talking about the Church and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and He shall approach unto me: for who is this that engage his heart to approach unto me? saith the Lord.
So when you are there, you emerge a noble, you can’t return the way you came when you engage your heart in seeking unto God. When thou saith seek my face, the Psalmist said, my heart says thy face O God will I seek, Psalm 27:8.
“Thou shall seek for me and find me when thou shall search for me with all of your heart; Jeremiah 29:13.
The heart of man is deep, the Word says and desperately wicked, who can know it? “I the Lord alone, I search the heart and I try the reins, even to give to every man according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings.”
Let’s get our heart set to meet with God. Let’s be true to ourselves as we get set for Shiloh.
For God does not look like man looks, man looks on the outward but God looks to the heart; 1st Samuel 16:7, what He finds in the heart is what determines what He places in our hands to give to everyone according to what I find in their heart.
So get set, not just buying a new dress for Shiloh, it’s not an anniversary. “For this people draw near me with their mouth and with their lips they do honour but they have removed their heart far from me and their fear of me is taught by the precept of men:”
You don’t have to care for these things, all these Old Testament ministries. Whether it’s old or new, what you return with will show how new your latest seducing teachings has brought.
We should much bother about the outcome of what people claim to believe and what they teach, let’s ask, let’s watch.
What is the outcome of these teachings? Shadows, shadows, nothing tangible because the Scriptures cannot be broken by any philosopher, any psychologist, any powerful speaker, pfft.
Doctrines of devil are flying all over, you don’t have to do anything, God just loves you anyhow, He can’t love you any less, if you commit murder He loves you. Do you love an armed robber? Answer me my friend. You pray for armed robber to succeed? You bless armed robbers?
They are passing and you said, come are you going for armed robbery? He said yes, just get this money to eat on the way and I pray that they won’t kill you.
I love them that love me, that’s what the Word says, it’s not I love everybody. I love them that love me and they that seek me early shall find me. It’s not I love everybody, no, that’s wasted love. Do I not hate them that hate thee? David said I hate them with perfect hatred.
You better know what God hates and run away from it. Thank you Jesus.
For the eyes of the Lord runneth to and fro in all the earth, 2nd Chronicles 16:9, to show himself strong in the behalf of then whose hearts are perfect. Perfection begins with the heart. When the heart is perfect, we are on our way to perfection. It has to start from the heart.
Perfection has its root in the heart.
Hezekiah said, I have walked before you with a perfect heart. I don’t have a perfect life but I have a perfect heart God is talking about and that’s the spring board for a perfect life. Let’s get ready, Shiloh is no joke, amazing packages awaits us. No one will miss his portion. Your crown another man will not take.
I lay down, I rose up, I lay down, I rose up, He was just speaking to me about it. Shiloh will be the heaviest experience you have ever had. Stand to your feet.Amen.
Now, let’s pray a prayer from the heart. Engrace me to be adequately set for the package you have reserved for me at Shiloh. Go ahead and pray, engrace me to be perfectly set, sanctify me by your blood, sanctify me by your Spirit, sanctify me by your word.
I mustn’t miss my portion. Another man must not take my portion. I look up to you for an encounter of a lifetime at Shiloh.
Let your heart align with your expectation right now. Let your heart align with your expectation right now, let your heart align with your expectation right now, your crown another man will not take.
