THE THEME FOR SHILOH 2023 IS REDEEMED TO FLOURISH IN HARD TIMES
THE GRACE THAT BROUGHT YOU HITHERTO WILL TAKE YOU THROUGH TO 2024 AND SHILOH WILL OPEN THAT GREAT CHAPTER IN YOUR LIFE
BIBLICAL WISDOM IS PUTTING GOD’S WORD TO WORK. APPROPRIATE APPLICATION OF THE WORD MAKES YOU WISE
NO ONE CAN LIVE A LIFE THAT GOD IN HIS OWN STRENGTH. YOU NEED THE HELPER (THE HOLY SPIRIT)
EVERYONE NEEDS THE SPIRIT OF SANCTIFICATION TO SUSTAIN A SANCTIFIED LIFE.
– Bishop David Oyedepo on UNDERSTANDING THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 4 at Covenant Day of Marital Settlement Service Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland First Sunday Service || Part A
Biblical wisdom is about putting God’s Word to work. Matthew 7:24. Appropriate application of the Word is what makes you wise. Psalm 19:7.
– Now in the name of Jesus, the wisdom for settlement in all areas of our lives is released this morning.
– Grace for appropriate application of the Word that will lead to settlement and give us rest, receive it now in the name of Jesus.
Lord, all eyes are on you, we are here for you, we are here to hear from you. Lord, let your Word locate each one of us today and reposition us for settlement in Jesus name.
Every one who has heard the declaration of Shiloh, today shall be your Shiloh. Every barrier on your part is cleared.
God is launching you into a unique year in 2024. The grace that brought you hitherto will take you through to 2024 and Shiloh will open that great chapter in your life in Jesus precious name. Again, the theme for Shiloh is: REDEEMED TO FLOURISH IN HARD TIMES.
Psalms 37:18,19. No matter the heat in the environment, you shall be exempted in the name of Jesus.
We continue with our series this morning, ‘UNDERSTANDING THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT‘ Part 4. We have tried to establish the fact that the Holy Spirit is a multi dimensional Helper. He has different administrations, diversities of functions all to give us the help we need to make the most of our lives and secure eternity at the end. 1 Corinthians 12:1,4-7.
So, these diversities of operations are designed to make us live a profitable life here below and enjoy eternity in grand style at the end.
We need His help to make it happen. We’ve been examining some of those vital operations of the Holy Spirit and today we will be looking at the Spirit of sanctification.
No one can live a life that pleases God in his own strength. By redemption, we have a golden destiny in Christ. The Bible defines it as a glorious destiny. Romans 8:29,30. Zechariah calls it a golden destiny.
Zechariah 4:1-6. It is impossible to live a life that pleases God without the Helper at work in our lives.
Christ was declared to be the son of God by the Spirit of holiness. Romans 1:4. So, everybody needs the Spirit of sanctification to sustain a sanctified life otherwise, it will be like ‘end of year restitution or resolution’ some of which endures for 4 weeks, some very strong ones, 8 weeks, very few last 12 weeks.
“I will never drink again. Alcohol? Never in my life till I die” He struggles for the first month, second month he says “The thing is moving me”. Even Christ was declared to be the Son of God with power by the Spirit of holiness. Romans 1:4. People don’t know what they need that’s why they are in need.
People will pray for power for signs and wonders but what is bothering them they won’t pray for it. The rod will not work in the hand of everyone but in the hand of sanctified people. The rod didn’t work in the hand of Gehazi, It is loaded with power but he was not a vessel worthy of it.
