Ministering: Bishop David O. Oyedepo
Dan 6:3 “Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.”
Every manifestation of the Spirit answers to our desperation. It is your panting that determines your part. It is your thirst that determines your take away. Love is the platform that gives you access to all that God has for you.
1 Cor. 12:31. But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
Pro. 4:3. For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.
What differentiates us in the run of life is the Spirit of Excellence. Everything about empowerment demands a thirst.
Ezek. 2:2. And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.
Jn. 7:37-39. In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
What is the Spirit of Excellence?
- The Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation.
Eph. 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
Gen. 41:37-39 And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants.
And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:
To Gain Access to the Spirit of Excellence, you must be a Real Lover of God.
You are living this place with that spirit alive in you and changing your story forever.
It is the Spirit that enlightens and illuminates believers to remain relevant.
Is. 60:8,15,22 Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?
Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.
A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time.
The spirit of excellence is simply access to revelation. It provides access to light from heaven in all matters of life. This is the spirit that enlightens and illuminate believers to make them relevant in their journey in life and turn them to rising giants
The Spirit of Excellence proffers Solutions to real life Situations.
Matt. 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
I pray that everyone will return with each portion of the excellence Spirit today
The Church World is in the Age of Discoveries – The Age of Wisdom and Excellence.
Micah 4:1-2 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Eph. 3:8-11 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
The Endtime Church will be showing the Nations where to go by the depth of the manifold wisdom of God.
1 Jn. 2:14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

You are in your age of discovery, take advantage of it so you don’t live your life in regret. You are in your age of discovery, stop being a crying baby, wake up and take responsibility
Lam.3:27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.
Rev 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
Is. 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
Lam. 3:37 Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not?
John 16:12-14 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
Matt. 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Settled down with substances…Read all ‘readables’, find all ‘findables’ …they would be assets to you in the future
Eph. 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
Your future is not in your plan, it is in His plan so go find out His plan. You will get it right from now! Not all open doors are God’s door, many are traps in disguise
The Spirit of Excellence is our Access to out if this World Order of Wisdom.
I am in my age of discovery, this is where my future is determined so help me Jesus to get serious with my life and Your plans for me.
Certain things would begin to happen in your life that would be beyond the Scientific.
We are in the days where a good old age shall be the reward of the believers, just knowing the right thing to do to keep strong and healthy and then you’re there!.
Job 28:9-11,23 He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the mountains by the roots.
He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing.
He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.
Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.
God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
Wisdom creates solutions to the challenges of life. God is the only source of this realm of light and understanding.
You’re leaving here today with that creative solution power and you will never be stranded again!
Your being tied to God is the only guarantee; you can’t put God aside and flow in this realm.
Dan. 2:20-23 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:
And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.
Solution bearing insight, that’s what you’re leaving here with, you won’t struggle again where others are struggling!
1 Jn. 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
2 Cor. 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
The only authentic proof of redemption is the passing away of old things. “If nothing has changed, nothing real has happened”. A Capital Demand for Access is New-Birth. You must be born again with fruits of repentance with proofs of your new birth, you can make it with men but you cannot make it with God.
Demands to access the Spirit of Wisdom
- New Birth is the capital demand of access. Ecc 9:10, Jn. 3:7, 2 Cor. 5:17. Are you born again? And where is the proof of your new birth? The only authentic proof of redemption is the passing away of old things, and new things in place.
- The Fear of God
Job 28:27-28 Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.
And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
The spirit of excellence is only accessible to those who are living with the fear of God as a lifestyle.
I release you from here by this impartation as solution bearers, you never run out of valuable ideas anymore!
Pro. 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
Ps. 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do His commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
Pro. 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
Renew your bottles to prepare you for the new anointing. Until you turn at His reprove, it is not your turn to be imparted.
Lk. 5:38 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.
Heb. 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
Ps. 45:7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
2 Cor. 4:1-2 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
2 Pt. 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
Receive this hour the outpouring of the Spirit of Excellence upon your life! The Spirit of Excellence is a gift, not an Achievement.
“CAUTION”: This is a gift and not an achievement, therefore the glory must be to the giver, the moment you begin to receive the glory the flow will cease.
May no agent of the devil visit you!
May no human applauds blow your head up!
May no queen of Sheba visit you!
Pride is poisonous to the spirit of excellence!
Dan. 4:29-33 At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon.
The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?
While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.
And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws.

And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.
And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
“Read books that have proofs of what any Author is talking about otherwise it’s not qualified to be read”. Wisdom of the Holy Ghost is fire but you need wood to keep the fire burning, you can’t grow in wisdom without knowledge
