I HAVE WORKED UNDER BISHOP OYEDEPO FOR CLOSE TO FORTY YEARS NOW AND NO ONE CAN DENY THE IMPACT.
WHO TOLD YOU THAT YOU CANT BE HONOURED IF YOU ARE SERVING SOMEWHERE?
If God does not call you to start a ministry don’t get into it. If you are under a system, don’t get angry and react to go and start your own ministry. If you start it by yourself, you will sustain it by yourself. Look at me for the past forty years I have been working under Bishop David Oyedepo, why? Because God called him and asked me to work under him and you can’t deny the impact today. Ministry is not about number but your function, therefore let every man abide in the area wherein he is called. If your caller is not with you, you will end up in a corner. If you don’t have a sender you will be sent back. If you don’t have a back up you will have backbone breakage.
If the Lord calls you to start a ministry make sure you receive the good will of the house. Every one that God called, it took the good will of the family for them to prosper. While working with Bishop David Oyedepo I know my level, I know my limit and I don’t cross the boundaries. I don’t envy him, I camp behind him and watch every step he takes and I take also that is why there is no blessing that God has given Bishop Oyedepo that He has not given me. It might not be exactly the same but it is in similarity including honour and respect. Who told you that you cannot be honoured if you are serving somewhere. If you are not called to start an independent ministry, stay where you are.
What are the platforms for labour that sustain revival?
- Kingdom Advancement Prayer and Fasting
2 Corinthians 11:27, Galatians 4:19, Colossians 4:12
You will never find a quiet maternity. For a baby to be delivered, there must be shouting because there cannot be birthing with trivial. You cannot have and sustain revival without travailing. Today we no longer have wet eyes in prayer that is why revival is farther and farther from us. The first church was a loud praying church. If people are not complaining about your church in the neighborhood, perhaps your church is dead. Every revived church is a noisy, traveling, labouring church. Only growing church will end up as groaning church.
You can’t pray a baby prayer and expect adult results. Church Gist. Many of us are expecting great things but we are doing little things. If you don’t maximize your youth, you will cry when you are old, if you miss this as a young man you will not be able to jump when you are old. When they tell you take it easy, don’t listen. Don’t take it easy. Take it hard, only those who take it hard will fly it high.
- Soul Winning / Establishment
Revival time is massive ingathering of souls. If we don’t go out we can not bring them in. We can’t sit in church and except them to come in. Today there is no week that I don’t go out at least once. Let’s get back to duty. Church on mission is church that will live forever. Statistics show that every church that is thriving today is thriving in soul winning and establishment.
Stop looking for coat to wear, you are not a showman. I am not saying you should dress well but don’t go for it. For more than twenty years now, I have not bought one coat for myself. I a pursuing what He sent me to do and all these things have been added to me. Church Gist. Stop pursuing car, you don’t need car it will be added to you. In 13 years I have bought only one car, where are the cars coming from? Mathew 6:33. Do what you see us do and you will see the wonders that we see in our lives.
You stop working things will stop working. You stop working, revival will stop. Bend your back to lead and God will raise you to lead.
Now call for the baptism of the grace for labour now. You need to be stretched for you to spread.
