WE DON’T TAKE OFFERINGS ON CRUSADE GROUNDS. AS FAR AS OUR CRUSADES ARE CONCERNED, WE CAME FOR THE SOULS OF PEOPLE NOT THEIR MONEY
GOD’S SERVANT BISHOP DAVID OYEDEPO SAID HE WAS A PICTURE OF POVERTY. HE TOOK A 3 DAY FAST AND HEARD GOD’S WORD.
TODAY HE IS A SYMBOL OF KINGDOM PROSPERITY AND SUPERNATURAL SUPPLY TO THE PAIN OF THE devil AND RELIGIOUS PEOPLE
WHAT YOU SEE OUT OF THE WORD DETERMINES WHAT YOU SEE OUT OF LIFE
THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE IS DETERMINED BY THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIGHT
IF YOUR FASTING IS SPIRITUAL, LET IT NOT JUST END WITH LOSS OF WEIGHT BUT WITH THE GAIN OF LIGHT
– Dr Pastor Paul Enenche on ACCESSING THE LIGHT at South Africa Healing and Deliverance Crusade Johannesburg, South Africa Day 2, Morning Session 20th October 2023 Part D
God’s servant Bishop David Oyedepo, he said he was the picture of poverty even though he was trying to preach prosperity, but he had no reflection. He had a car at that time, from what I heard, when the car was coming, service had to stop temporarily because of the sound of the car. All of a sudden, he said to God, “Show me light about Kingdom supernatural supply, show me light”. He took a 3 day fast, took the books of Kenneth and Gloria Copeland and then settled for about 72 hours until light broke. ‘My prosperity plan is not a promise to claim but a covenant to walk in. When your role is played, my part is committed’.
He saw and he screamed, ” I can never be poor again”. Today, he is a symbol of Kingdom prosperity and supernatural supply to the pain of the devil and the pain of religious people. Running two universities at the same time, private universities, all manner of the unimaginable. Faith Theater is in construction. That project, the basement alone can take over 16,000-20,000 people apart from the main sanctuary that is over 100,000 people. He said to the Church, he said, “If it is for this project don’t give any more, all the money to build it is ready. You can give for another thing” Now, everything including chairs, including sound, including AC, every single thing paid for because he saw light.
Illumination is the elimination of frustration. Peter, “I have toiled all night”. Illumination is the elimination of frustration. Revelation is the elimination of frustration. ” I have toiled all night Master, nevertheless at thy Word, I will let down the net”.
When that Word came, the struggle was over. The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your light. This particular statement I have made now I’m not sure I have made it before. I have preached on light but directly like this, that the quality of your life is determined by the quality of your light. When people look at you and you look enviable and they’ll be wondering why is this man not struggling about anything, why is this man just living like this. It is because there is a light you have. How can you organize crusades like this and you don’t take offerings on crusade grounds all over the world, in Nigeria, around Nigeria, all over the world.
One man told me, he said, “How is this possible? Is it because many people have the zeal to go out but what about the means?”. The spirit is willing but the pocket is not willing.
This was crusade ground, (referring to a picture). All these people were there two weeks ago, not a dime was taken from anybody as an offering because actually offering is not wrong but as far as our crusades are concerned we determined that we came for the souls of the people, not their money and then we decided and determined that we shall not be misunderstood…and then you travel with a team of people, there are times, so many times, 99% of the time you can’t go commercial because if you are going to go commercial you can’t meet the schedule and you can’t be back to Church on Sunday morning and then you calculate the cost.
Do you understand what I’m talking about?…and you’re moving as if nothing is happening and you’re not looking beggarly or pitiably.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Today I prophesy to somebody, in the name that is above every name, hearing this word alone, your quality of life is shifting to the next level.
One servant of the Lord, minister of the gospel. He asked us sometime back, he said, “Are there other businesses you people are doing to be able to do all the things you are doing?”. We were building the Glory Dome at that time, I don’t know if they have the picture of it there and it was going on…I don’t want to even tell you how much we were spending on it a month at the time of the construction.
This minister of the gospel said, “Is there any other business you are doing, what are the sources of income?”, I said, “It’s God, supernatural supply, the Word”.
Do you know what the person said? He said, “Only? Is that the only thing?” This thing was running nonstop, spending heavily monthly nonstop until completion. He said, “Is that the only thing?”. The Word of God is enough, it’s more than enough. Philippians 3:19.
Pastor, Minister, Child of God, get set, your life’s quality is shifting levels. People are going to be shocked with what God will do in your life.
Very quickly before we round off this afternoon, how do I access light? What is my secret of light? What do I do if I need light?
1: Enquire of God for light.
Enquire, Lord, I need light. Daniel 2:17-18. When there was a need for light concerning the mystery that surrounded Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel went before God and enquired of God for light. Every area of your life where there seems to be darkness in charge, enquire for light. Especially areas where it looks like there are mysteries, enquire for light.
2: Explore the Word for access to light.
Settle down with the Word. Psalm 119:18.
– Lord, show me what I have not seen before.
What you see out of the Word determines what you will see out of life. What you see out of the Word is the determinant of what you will see out of life.
What you see out of the Word determines what you will see out in the World. Because the Bible says God uses the Word to frame the world. He frames…He determined the edges of the world. Hebrews 11:1-3. You know a picture frame, God is saying the picture frame for this world is the Word. You determine the boundaries of your existence by the Word. The world in which you live can be decided by the Word. The world in which you live can be hedged, defined, demarcated by the Word. You are not permitted to live outside the boundaries of that demarcation by the Word. This is where I live, above, by my sides and below me is the Word. Anything outside this frame can’t be accessed here.
3: Wait on the Lord for light.
There are many times people are waiting on the Lord for marital breakthrough, financial breakthrough, this and that. You can sit down fasting to get light. When God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo went on that 3 day fast, 3 things happened. First of all, he was asking God in prayer, 2- he was studying the Word and 3- he was waiting on the Lord. ‘Why are you here pastor?’, ‘I am fasting so that God can show me something from the Word that will terminate this demonic siege’. Isaiah 58:6,8. You wait on the Lord to experience the breaking out of light. There are people who do 21 days fasting and didn’t see one light out of Scripture. What kind of waste is that? “I have been fasting for 20 days, for 30 days, for 40 days”, the only thing you came out with was loss of weight, not the gain of light. Don’t lose weight without gaining light. As far as fasting is concerned, don’t lose weight without gaining light. Now, if your fasting was for the purpose of weight loss, that is an objective and it’s a correct objective because excess weight can affect the body…that’s ok, that’s alright. But if it is spiritual, let it not just end with the loss of weight, let it end with the gain of light.
At least one light of Scripture, one revelation, one insight, something you would hold on to and say ‘This is what I came out of this fast with and the devil must pay for whatever he has done against my life’.
Sit down, open the Scripture, speak in tongues, pray (Lord, what are you saying, Spirit of God, I receive light on this matter), then you can consider the fast successful. By the time you get that witness in your spirit, you’ll see light that will make you shout, light that will make you look like a drunkard, light that will make you rugged, ruthless and spiritually reckless.
