The Word Of God Is More Powerful Than Any Witches And Wizards

The Word Of God Is More Powerful Than Any Witches And Wizards

“And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.”

Luke 1:45 (KJV)

The word of God is more powerful than any obstacle. It is more powerful than witches and wizards. It is more powerful than incantations, spells and divinations. It is more powerful than any pronouncement and negative things that are working against you. The word of God has been spoken. And he will see to it that the word spoken in your life will come to pass.

I encourage you, therefore, to hold on to the word. Hold fast the profession of your faith without wavering. Never give up your confidence. Cast it not away. God will see to it that the word is validated in your job, business, academics etc. Don’t be afraid, no matter what you encounter. There shall surely be a performance. “With God nothing shall be impossible” (Luke 1:1-37, KJV).

If you hold on to the word, you are guaranteed of victory. The word cannot fail. If it fails, it means God has failed. He has said His word will not return to Him void. That is why we have an edge against the world. They don’t have the word of God. We have an edge because we have the God factor. God is with you. With you, God will do mighty things. He will do the impossible. He will shut the mouth of the enemy. He is God. Beside Him there is no other.

Why do you think you are saved? Is it to become a disgrace to His kingdom? No! You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a peculiar person, a holy nation. Set apart to show forth the praises of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvellous light. You may have missed it severally but you will succeed. Don’t go about with your head bowed to the devil. Lift up your head! God has already perfected everything that concerns you and He wants you to function from that standpoint.

Hebrews 6:9-20

9 But even if we speak like this, dear friends, we feel sure about you. We know that you have the better blessings that belong to your salvation. 10 God is not unfair. He will not forget the work you did or the love you showed for him in the help you gave and are still giving to other Christians. 11 Our great desire is that each of you keep up your eagerness to the end, so that the things you hope for will come true. 12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to be like those who believe and are patient, and so receive what God has promised.

God’s Sure Promise
13 When God made his promise to Abraham, he made a vow to do what he had promised. Since there was no one greater than himself, he used his own name when he made his vow. 14 He said, “I promise you that I will bless you and give you many descendants.” 15 Abraham was patient, and so he received what God had promised. 16 When we make a vow, we use the name of someone greater than ourselves, and the vow settles all arguments. 17 To those who were to receive what he promised, God wanted to make it very clear that he would never change his purpose; so he added his vow to the promise. 18 There are these two things, then, that cannot change and about which God cannot lie. So we who have found safety with him are greatly encouraged to hold firmly to the hope placed before us. 19 We have this hope as an anchor for our lives. It is safe and sure, and goes through the curtain of the heavenly temple into the inner sanctuary. 20 On our behalf Jesus has gone in there before us and has become a high priest forever, in the priestly order of Melchizedek.

Hebrews 10:35-39

35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

God Says It! I Believe It! And That Settles It!

God Says It! I Believe It! And That Settles It!

 

“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”

John 6:63 (KJV)

The word of God will fight for itself. If Jesus did not fail, the word of God will never fail because Jesus and His word are one. Let the rain come down, let everyone be against you, but hold on tenaciously to His word. You may not understand the things around you but just hold the word. And you watch what the word will do.

In Mark 4:35, Jesus said “let us pass over unto the other side”. That was the word that came from the lips of Jesus. And they got into the boat and started going. Suddenly, there was a storm. The wind became contrary. But, nevertheless, they could not be stopped because Jesus had spoken.

Maybe, you are experiencing contrary situations in your life. You are experiencing things that are contrary to what God has spoken. The Lord has spoken that by His stripes you were healed. He has spoken that with long life will he satisfy you and show you His salvation. He has spoken that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. He has spoken that you are blessed going out and blessed coming in. He has spoken that you have been redeemed from every curse of the law. My friend, forget the devil. God’s words are spirit and life. They will not fail. Devil, I say to you get lost. God’s people shall manifest.

Beloved, God is not intimidated by the attacks of the devil. He would not start a thing and stop it halfway. God will overrule for you. There is a divine investment into your life that is about to shake nations and affect community. Don’t you ever think that God will just watch and allow the devil to mess with you. I declare to you that you are coming out of every pressure and every influence of the devil. The devil will never have the last word. If anyone will testify, it is you.

Joshua 21:43-45
43 And the Lord gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein.

44 And the Lord gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the Lord delivered all their enemies into their hand.

45 There failed not ought of any good thing which the Lord had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.

READ: Psalm 105

Welcome Address To SHILOH 2015, FROM GLORY TO GLORY, 2 Corinthians 3:18 By Bishop David O. Oyedepo. Winners Chapel, Living Faith Church Shiloh 2015

shiloh 2015 from glory to glory

Welcome Address To SHILOH 2015, FROM GLORY TO GLORY, 2 Corinthians 3:18 By Bishop David O. Oyedepo. Winners Chapel, Living Faith Church Shiloh 2015

Heaven on Earth greetings in Jesus’ name.
As we all know, our God specializes in doing new things over and again – Is. 43:19/Lam. 3:22-33
Again, we understand that by redemption, we are ordained for continuous and unending progress – Pro. 4:18
We also understand that God is committed to our continuous change of levels as His children– Ps. 84:7

Furthermore, we understand that all the forces that engender change of levels grow and that there is no end to the growth of all spiritual forces responsible for our change of story.

For example, some of the ever-growing forces responsible for our translation from glory to glory include:

The Force of Vision, but there is no end to seeing farther– Gen. 13:14-15/ Hos. 12:10
The Force of Faith, but there is no end to developing one’s faith – 2 Thess. 1:3/ Jn. 14:12
The Force of Revelation, but there is no end to growing in revelation– 2 Cor. 3:18/ 1 Cor. 8:1-2
The Force of Wisdom, but there is no end to growing in wisdom – Rom. 11:33/ Matt. 12:42
The Force of Love, but there is no end to growing in love – Eph. 3:17-19/ 1Cor. 2:9
The Anointing of the Holy Spirit, but there is no end to growing in the anointing – Ezek. 47:1-7/ Jn. 3:34
All of the above implies that:

There is no end to change of levels in God’s agenda for His people – Is. 43:18-19/ Deut. 28:1-13

There is no end to change of levels for the redeemed – Pro. 4:18/ Rom. 5:1

This is because:

As we grow in revelation, we scale new heights – 2 Cor. 3:18/ Is. 60:1-22

As we grow in love, we spring new surprises – Eph. 3:17-19/ 1 Cor. 2:9

As we grow in wisdom, we grow in impact – Rom. 11:33/ Matt. 13:54

As we grow in the anointing, we grow in exploits– Ezek. 47:1-7/Joel 2:23-26

This is why, there is no end to Next Levels for the Redeemed – Pro. 4:18/ Jn. 14:12

Indeed, there is no end to being translated from glory to glory, as we remain committed to walking in the ever-increasing light we access from scriptures.
Therefore, the prophetic theme for Shiloh 2015 is:

FROM GLORY TO GLORY– 2 Corinthians 3:18

We are all expected to get set to access new depth of insight, empowering us to break new grounds, scale new heights, break limits into greater realms of glory, resulting in the rise of giants at Shiloh 2015.

But according to scriptures, we can only be full beneficiaries of Shiloh 2015 if we fully engage in the spiritual preparations required for its maximum impact because the husbandman that labours is ordained to be the first partaker of the fruit – 2 Tim. 2:6

Remain ever blessed.

Jesus is Lord!

David O. Oyedepo

I Love You Dear! In The Hands Of God, My Words Will Be Used Like Nails To Secure My Spouse’s Self-Esteem

I Love You Dear! In The Hands Of God, My Words Will Be Used Like Nails To Secure My Spouse’s Self-Esteem

The words of wise men are like goads, and masters of these collections are like well-driven nails.
Ecclesiastes 12:11

When your marriage relationship hits a trouble spot, it may be difficult to find much to praise about each other. Yet those are the times we need praise the most. So I urge you to initiate praising your spouse. Make it a deliberate effort. Bring the power of positive words to him or her in the midst of trouble.

In the verse above, Solomon gave some very descriptive characteristics of well-spoken words. When you choose to encourage and praise your spouse, your words carry the ability to prod, or goad, him or her in the right direction. And notice the result: Those words become like “well-driven nails,” the kind that secure all types of building projects.

In the hands of God, your words can be used like nails to secure your mate’s self-esteem. Your wise and truthful words bring perspective to his or her life, to your relationship and to your situation as a couple. They make finding solutions to your problems a real possibility.

You may be asking, “What if all this praise goes to my spouse’s head? Won’t he become prideful?” There’s a difference between truthful praise and flattery.

Flattery gratifies a person’s vanity, but praise is based on a person’s character and deeds. When you truthfully praise and applaud your spouse’s choices, you reinforce the value of building godly character.

Paul exhorts us, “Speak truth each one of you with his neighbor” (Ephesians 4:25). A keyword in that phrase is “truth,” which is the only real standard for bringing value to another person. Truth results in assurance and security, in worth and value. It becomes the compass during the storm that confidently steers us in the right direction.

So praise your spouse in all situations, using wisdom to meet the need of the moment, speaking truthfully to help construct character. Your words of affirmation can help rebuild what life has torn apart.

PRAY

Pray for a heart that longs to build up, not tear down.

Children Need Role Models. Let’s Talk About Sex

Children Need Role Models. Let’s Talk About Sex

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

2 Timothy 2:22

Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:18

3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;
5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5

I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil.

ROMANS 16:19

Have you ever had that wave of paralyzing dread—the one where you fear you’ll come off looking and feeling like a hypocrite if you challenge your child to uphold standards you didn’t keep too well yourself when you were younger?

For many, this feeling is especially acute when talking to children about sexual behavior. I believe this is one of the ways the enemy attempts to silence parents. But don’t allow past failures to prevent you from calling your child to the standard of God’s Word.

After all, every one of us has lied, haven’t we? Yet we still teach our children to tell the truth. When it comes to talking frankly with your preteens and teenagers about what God expects of them sexually, you dare not let the fear of an embarrassing question force you into silence.

Most children won’t ask whether or not you were a virgin prior to marriage. But even if they do—and even if you weren’t—you could answer, “That’s a good question, and someday when you’re an adult, I want to answer you more fully. But for now, that information is off-limits.”

If your child isn’t satisfied and persists in digging further, you may want to admit, “Yes, I made some mistakes I really regret,” but not go into details.

Children need role models, especially in their parents. And it’s better if they don’t know certain things about you when they’re too young to understand.

When your child is grown, in the context of an adult relationship, you can decide how much you want to reveal. But for now, don’t let vivid descriptions become stumbling blocks in their lives and in your discussions.

Keep the subject on God’s standards and on His desire for their welfare and purity. They need to hear from you what God expects of them.

1 Corinthians 10:13 –
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear

Matthew 5:28 –
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

There Is God’s Supernatural Power In The Words I Speak

There Is God’s Supernatural Power In The Words I Speak

I want to share something with you today that many believers have yet to understand. It’s a truth that can help you stay at peace, knowing the power that is yours in Christ Jesus. I think that’s why I’m so excited to write this letter—I want you to see that…

There is supernatural power in the words you speak.

When our Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again to be seated at the right hand of the Father, the Bible tells us that we as believers were also seated in Christ at the right hand of the Father (Ephesians 2:4-6).

Today, seated in Christ at the Father’s right hand, you have divine authority! Because of this, your words carry incredible, divine, and supernatural power.

Beloved, the words you speak have life-giving, creative power. What you choose to say sets in motion the kind of life you are going to live.

And more specifically…

The words you speak by faith in the days to come will positively influence the direction of your life in 2016.

Let’s look at what that means for you and your family as you approach a brand-new year. If you’ll believe that God’s Word is true and speak His promises over your life in faith, you’re going to see greater things in the year to come…
•Improved health
•Restored relationships
•Increased provision
•Renewed youth

And these blessings are just the beginning…there is no limit to the grace and goodness of God through Christ Jesus!

It is amazing to see what Jesus taught about faith and the power of words in Mark 11 after He had cursed the barren fig tree.

The disciples were astonished that the unfruitful tree had withered just as Jesus had commanded it to. It was at this moment that Jesus taught His followers about the connection between what you believe and what you say.

Look carefully and you’ll see it…

So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”

Did you catch it? Jesus used the word “says” three times, but He mentions “believes” only once.

Beloved, can you see that while right believing is important, it needs to go hand-in-hand with speaking words of faith? When you believe something, you speak it out (2 Corinthians 4:13).

Jesus mentioned “says” three times and “believes” only once because…

Giving voice to what you believe strengthens your faith and anchors your heart on God’s promises for your life.

That’s why your words are so important. Not only can you speak faith into your situation, you can speak life to your soul. So say…
•“I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!”
•“I am healed. My body is growing stronger. I am whole!”
•“I have the favor of God. Good things happen to me and through me.”
•“My sins are forgiven. I am unconditionally loved by my heavenly Father.”

When you declare your righteousness, forgiveness, and healing in Christ, hope, faith, and strength rise in your heart. It determines how you respond to challenges, how you unlock God’s power in your circumstances and the direction your life will take.

Speaking life over every situation,

I Must Grow In Grace In Order To Accomplish Great Things For God’s Kingdom

I Must Grow In Grace In Order To Accomplish Great Things For God’s Kingdom

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Acts 1:8

We can only advance in our spiritual maturity as the Holy Spirit comes upon us. It is then we are able, from within, to become what He has called us to be, and that is a powerful witnesses.

Jesus experienced continual growth and increase in His life from childhood. Therefore you and I must constantly be growing in our spiritual life if victory is our goal. Those who remain stagnate in their walk with God cannot walk in victory. We must grow in grace in order to accomplish great things for God’s Kingdom.

Luke 2:40,
“And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him…And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man.”

I Corinthians 13:11 says,
“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”

2 Peter 3:18 the apostle decrees,
“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”

We must always be in a process of spiritual growth for the sake of the King.

What A Great Day I Live In Because Of What Jesus Has Done For Us. The Spirit Of God Lives In Me

What A Great Day I Live In Because Of What Jesus Has Done For Us. The Spirit Of God Lives In Me

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.
Ephesians 3:16

We are infused with inner strength by the Spirit of God. As we invite God to fill us and strengthen us, something begins to happen in our spirit. There is a new enthusiasm about life and the will of God for our lives. As we recognize and yield to the Holy Spirit, God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think. We have “joy unspeakable and full of glory” (I Peter 1:8).

What a great day we live in because of what Jesus has done for us. We are redeemed because of His death, burial, resurrection, and the power of His blood.

What a powerful revelation given by the Holy Spirit. You are in Christ, Christ is in God, and Christ is in you! The Spirit of God lives in us.

Confession:
That He would grant me, according to the riches of His glory to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in my inner man! Amen! Ephesians 3:16

Every Word God Has Spoken Concerning My Life Shall Come To Pass, Amen

Every Word God Has Spoken Concerning My Life Shall Come To Pass, Amen

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life [. . .].”

Psalm 23:6 (KJV)

You know after God created all things in Genesis, He said this is good. But after making man in His own image and likeness, He said this is very good. The goodness of God will overshadow you everywhere you go. The goodness of God will pursue you. It will not only pursue you, it will catch up with you and overtake you.

Every word God has spoken concerning your life will come to pass. The word that God has spoken concerning you has already overruled the power of darkness. So if the devil speaks, it is too late. Whatever the devil has spoken is too late because the word of God has gone ahead of you. And it shall come to pass in your life.

The devil will not cut you short. Plane crash will not kill you. Armed robbers will not kill you. Assassins will not kill you. Charms and enchantments will not kill you. Diseases will not kill you. You will fulfil the days of your life. Your life will preach the gospel. Whatever you lay your hands upon shall succeed. Your life shall remain a testimony. Everywhere you go, your light will shine. The light that is coming from you will overshadow all darkness.

As this year draws to a close, it will not end without your testimony. If in the last 11 months nothing has happened, don’t give up, don’t lose hope, there is still so much time left in the year for God to give you that miracle. In every area of your life, the Lord will satisfy you with His goodness. This year will be your greatest year yet. The devil will not have the final word in your life. God has not brought you this far to disappoint you. If no one testifies, you will testify. It is too late for the devil. You are about to break out, break forth, breakthrough and break in. Hallelujah! Amen!

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalm 23:1-6
