Message by Bishop David Oyedepo at YOUTH ALIVE CONVENTION (IYAC) 2021 on Tuesday 14th September 2021.
Teaching Series: Gateways to Excellence Isa. 55.8 – For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Focus: UNVEILING THE WONDERS OF REDEMPTION
There are no blood lines in things of the kingdom. Where do you belong?
Abundant life Begins with new life. There is no wisdom for the dead. Everyone is dead before redemption. There is no life in a man who is not in Christ.
Eccl.9.10 – Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
John.3.3 – Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Everything Begins with salvation. Salvation takes you from darkness to the kingdom of God, where light dwells. At new birth, Jesus comes and dwell inside of you.
1Cor.1.24 – But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
That is the Creative, innovative and inventive wisdom of God to dwell in you. The wisdom of the ancient. This is the wisdom that made Daniel and his friends ten times better than their mate.
The mind of Christ. 1Cor.2.16 – For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
We have! Not that we shall have. We have the engine of excellence on our inside. Praise God. Everything working at a frequency unimaginable. We are redeemed to command excellent. Matt.5.14 – Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. This is a life that commands positive attention, supernatural influence.
The day you discover your redemptive root, your frustration ends. Isa. 55:1-13
Everything you need to make it is already on your inside with Jesus in you. Glory to God.
John.1.1 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John.1.2 – The same was in the beginning with God.
John.1.3 – All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
John.1.4 – In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
John.1.5 – And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
John.1.6 – There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
John.1.7 – The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
John.1.8 – He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
John.1.9 – That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
John.1.10 – He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
John.1.11 – He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
John.1.12 – But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
John.1.14 – And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
That’s the creative power that made the whole universe that the world is still studying. Imagine this Same Jesus to live in you. No wonder Jesus said that the least person in our generation is greater than the old testament generation. Matt.11.11 – Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. That is to say all the exploits wrought by David, Daniel, Joseph and all men of the old Testament are too little to compare with what we have been packaged to do.
Paul also helped to confirm this truth in
2Cor.3.7 – But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
2Cor.3.8 – How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
2Cor.3.9 – For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
2Cor.3.10 – For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
2Cor.3.11 – For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
We are seated with Christ in heavenly places. John.3.31 – He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. If we attach ourselves with Jesus, we will seat at Heavens with him which makes us above earthly wisdom. At redemption, we have a renewed mind and it becomes a Spirited mind. And when it is opened to Inspiration, it generates excellence without stress.
That is the secret behind Winners’ family Exploits so far. You need this Spirited mind to generate excellence at will.
2Tim.1.7 – For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
IT IS THE PICTURE YOU CATCH FROM THE SCRIPTURES THAT CREATES THE FUTURE YOU NEED WITHOUT STRESS. CATCH IT AND WALK IN IT, THEN YOUR FUTURE IS DEFINED.
Dan.11.32 – … but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. We are redeemed as Priests and Kings. But you need to start by seeing yourself as a King. If you see yourself as a king, then pick up your royal behavior. Don’t behave like slave and claim to be a king. Many fall into wrong hands because they live wrong lives. Your dressing and behavior determines who and what people approach you for. Wake up and put on your royal behavior. Put on your royal behavior. Put on your royal behavior.
Being born again gives you access to everything you have lost before. And this is the opportunity to make it right again with Christ. The Holy Ghost is waiting for you to say yes to Him. He is the one that makes everything happen. But He can only come in when you receive Jesus Christ. Do that now and begin to enjoy the Spirit of excellence. Rev.3.20 – Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
The time is now. ACCEPT JESUS AND BE ENLISTED FOR EXCELLENCE.
Are you born again? It will be a waste of time giving out instructions to the dead, come alive first.
You have a privilege tonight, you want to say ‘Jesus, come into my life, I want to experience the reality of new birth’, you want to experience old things passing away and all things becoming new for you.
Say this prayer: ‘Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you tonight, I believe you died for me and on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Tonight, I accept you as my Lord and Saviour, I repent of my sins, I believe my sins are now forgiven and I thank You for saving my soul. Thank You Jesus, by Your grace I shall live for you and serve You even till the end of my time, so help me Jesus. Amen’
