WE FELT COVID-19 SO BAD THAT WE PLANTED 10,000 CHURCHES IN NIGERIA AND 1,300 CHURCHES ACROSS 35 NATIONS IN 2020.
-Bishop David Oyedepo at 2nd Service, Faith Tabernacle
- COVID was going on its own, we were going on our own.
- COVID-19 is still harassing them around the world.
- Now we are building 100,000 seat capacity Sanctuary without any heat, without any tension.
- All Round Rest is not ‘Impartable’, it is a key that each one must hold in order to access that realm.
- There shall be famines in diverse places, earthquakes, wars and rumours of war, but if you let God lead you, you can’t feel the heat.
- If it is in your heart, my God will put it in your hands. You conceive it in your heart and He will deliver it to your hands.
Give Him thanks for a most impactful, a most empowering Midst of the Year Revival Season. Give this God thanks everybody.
Will you thank Him for massive salvation of souls, in the course of Operation By All Means! Give Him glory for the recovery of destinies. Give Him praise for breaking the hold of the powers of darkness over the lives of people. Magnify Him. In Jesus precious name we have given thanks.
One of the mysteries of the Kingdom is the fact that the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost are one. They are one, “if you have seen Me, you have seen My Father”, that’s what Jesus said (John 14:9). He said, “I will send you another Comforter like Me” (John 14:16) The Father is in Christ and the Father is in the Holy Ghost.
Behind all the amazing happenings in this great Midst of the Year Revival is God (Zephaniah 3:17; Habakkuk 3:13).
No one can come except My Father draws Him – John 6:44
The Holy Ghost draws by the mighty wind, by the compelling sound and it is the same thing, replicating what the Father does (Isaiah 43:6). Everything that the Father does, the same does the Son, the same does the Holy Ghost. They are all inside Him.

Did you see those 9 wonderful lives that Jesus rescued from the jaws of death? (Today’s testimony). Maybe they had been in a gang and would have been killed. One daughter of Zion went in there, they were smoking and pouring (puffing) it into her, she didn’t bother. She got them and then one family of Zion said, “we will look after them.” I was saying that thing in second Service (Sunday), “you give to the needy, you give to God!!”
I am happy that God is leaving with Himself a remnant of people with a heart for Him.
You woke up in the morning, there was nobody in your schedule for help; you saw 9 people and you say, “no, we will look after them.” 9 people! Husband and wife said, “no, we will look after them.”
I am happy, my soul is refreshed. You are not just receiving revelation, you are receiving impartation.
Somebody stands there and says, “Lord, one day, I will do like that.” You will do more than that. With a genuine heart for God, you will do more than that.
I met a young lady, she said, “You sent me to school.” I can’t remember. She is practicing Law today, it’s 10 years after been called to bar.
Just keep loving Jesus, recovering destinies: Sir, nobody in your lineage will be stranded.
My prayer is that whatever God has allotted you as your portion, you will not look away from it. Somebody’s destiny is hanging on you right now, I don’t know where he is: maybe in your Cell, maybe in your Zone, maybe in your neighbourhood and you are the help that God wants to reach out through, to reach that individual, now if you don’t do it, somebody else will do it; but may you not miss it.
-In the name of Jesus, for all those who stood with Jesus, these last 2 months, every blessing that accompany those who serve God in truth and verity becomes yours today.
-All those who look after people who are challenged, all those who help in getting (people) across to Church, those who could not make it by themselves: God saw you and in the name of Jesus, you shall be openly rewarded.
-All those who prayed fervent, effectual prayers, like that 26 years plague went away, every everlasting mountain standing before you, before this time, they are cleared off finally.
-You have recovered children you don’t know, God will ensure that no children in your lineage is ever stranded in the name of Jesus. So shall it be.
Prayers: Lord Jesus, speak to us this morning and let your name be glorified.
Remember today is our Covenant Day of All Round Rest:
-God is launching you to that realm practically today.
-You are entering into your realm of all round rest today and it shall be for your entire lifetime.
-There shall be no reversal in your case, in the name of Jesus Christ.
But please note that all round rest is not impartable, it is a key that each one must hold in order to access that realm
“Come, let me show you how to access your realm of all round rest. What I will tell you is cheaper than the burden you are carrying. My yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:30).
There is what you must do to access that realm. It is far cheaper than your other series of efforts intended to make it happen.
Come and learn and you shall find rest for your soul.
I can’t pray for you now to become a Pilot, it is not ‘impartable’, you have to learn. Not that I pray, you will now go and buy uniform, you carry bag, then go to the airport…
You say, “that is Captain Nicholas Udoh. A Missionary extraordinary who is now a Pilot because Papa lay hands on him.” Airport Police will pick you. Papa will not be there because he doesn’t answer phone.
It cannot be imparted.
Can I buy wig now and go to court?
You say why? “I have many sons who are Lawyers and like begets like, so I am a Lawyer.”
It cannot be imparted. Come and learn of me and you find rest for your soul:
What you don’t know, you don’t know.
What you won’t learn, you don’t know and what you don’t know, you will pay for it.
Come and learn of me and you shall find rest. There is a way to rest.
There is the way to peace that we must learn before we can know. We must learn it before we can know it.
-You will return with that key today. The key to the realm of lifelong all round rest. The key that puts you at rest in the midst of the storm.
“And He was fast asleep on a pillow.” He was just having a nice time (Mark 4:38)
“Don’t you care that we perish?” NO
That kind of rest emits signs and wonders.
-The peace that won’t let you feel the heat in the environment as if you are not sincere, that is the kind of peace and rest you are returning with from here.
THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD I SHALL NOT WANT – Psalm 23:1
The second anchor scripture you find there is Isaiah chapter 48 verse 21:
A gushing in the midst of the desert by following His leading. Many here never felt the effect of COVID-19 at all and people in your neighbourhood think you are faking it. They don’t know COVID-19 came.
You’ve heard testimony of businesses expanding in the course of COVID-19 in this Church.
When God is leading, there is gushing of water in your desert.
-Your desert season is finally over this time.
“There is no one in this country who does not feel the effect. People are just deceiving you”: we felt it so bad that we planted 10,000 Churches in the midst of COVID-19 and 1,300 across the Nations of the world: 35 Nations.
COVID was going on its own, we were going on our own.
“They thirsted not, when He led them”: circumstances may never improve but if you allow God to lead you, you won’t feel it.
There shall be famines in diverse places, earthquakes, wars and rumours of war, but if you let God lead you, you can’t feel the heat.
“They thirsted not.”
COVID-19 is still harassing them around the world. Now your Church is building 100,000 seat capacity Sanctuary without any heat, without any tension. “And they thirsted not when He led them.”
We can even close here. You don’t want to thirst in the desert? Let Him lead you. “And they thirsted not when He led them” (Isaiah 48: 21).
He led us here and you pass so many Churches in town to arrive here. I know a number of my people come from far away Ajah. It is like travelling to London and he gets here, because He led us here.
“It is too far” – Yes, go your way. You will see how far that your way is for where you are going.
Abraham trekked 3 days to arrive at his place of generational blessing. 3 days! (Genesis 22:4)
By following Him, He completed 50,000 in one year, we are inside.
By following Him, He built Covenant University on the same site. It will never have seen the light of day.
By following Him, He replicated it: Landmark University.
By following Him, He is building 100,000 (capacity Sanctuary).
By following Him, He led us to Africa.
In everything…by following Him.
-You will never suffer thirst again in your life.
When you allow God to lead You, only goodness and mercy are permitted to follow you.
-Therefore, from now, Psalm 23 shall become your new song.
-In the presence of your enemies, He will prepare a table before you and your cup will be running over (Psalm 23:5).
Following God renders your enemies restless.
-Your life will never lack testimonies.
Watch the life of that my daughter that cried with a genuine heart: Lord, give me souls.
Took her car out: Lord, show me where the souls are. She said, “Okay, that is it” and went to donate stuff. People that nobody will say ‘Jesus loves you’, went there: Mummy, we will follow you.
“Like that?” Did they not follow her? Did you see them here or not?
Now watch: that name involved will be announced in some strange places by reason of her heart for her God. That is the way it works.
If it is in your heart, my God will put it in your hands.
You don’t just (say), “well, if it will happen, it will happen.” You have to conceive it before you can deliver it. You conceive it in your heart and He will deliver it to your hands. You conceive it in your heart, then it is about to reach your hand.
Jesus is Lord.
