Ministering: Pst. Steve Ogah
The last days are the days of the very raw manifestations of the Spirit of excellence. Pursuit means desperation for excellence
Is. 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
vs 2: For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee
Vs 3: And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
We live in the days where God is distinguishing between the world and His own. Mal. 3:16
By the time you return From this mountain people who know you before won’t know you again because your story has changed!
Mal 4:1-2 Mat 9:17 As glorious as this realm is, we can only operate with new wineskin and not an old wineskin.
The manifestation of the Spirit of excellence requires the full dose of the fear of the Lord. Ps. 25:4, 1sa. 35:8-10
What is in the Fear of the Lord?
- It grants access to revelation. 1 Thess. 2:1 2 Pt. 3:15, 2 Cor. 12:7
- It grants access to fresh anointing. Pro. 1:23 Lk. 5:37-39 The access to the root of revelation is the fear of the lord, When we clean up by the fear of the Lord, we grow up in new anointings.
- It grants access to our inheritance. Acts 20:32
Acts 20:32-33 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

There is excellent in every aspect of man life but the only way to access it is the fear of God
