Ministering: Bishop David Oyedepo
Change of Level is only reserved for those in service; John 5:31-35; 1:46.
It is a risk to be ashamed of Jesus; He may turn His back on you. Share your testimonies lavishly; it is the way to bring people to Christ (Mark 8:38, Hosea 12:10, Psalms 23:5).
You cannot buy peace with money, but when God leads you, you have peace.
We belong to a ‘doing kingdom,’ not a ‘talking kingdom.’
There is no limit to your destiny, but God leads gradually; allow Him to guide you through (Proverbs 4:18, Deuteronomy 7:22, Zechariah 4:10).
We are redeemed unto glory and honour and not shame and reproach (Isaiah 61:7, 2pet1:3). The good news is that there are no ceilings on our destinies as believers.
When God is leading, the difference is always evident. This revelation brings us to what God has provided (Numbers 9:15-23, Deuteronomy 26:9, Exodus 13:17). Allow God to lead you; stop trying to lead yourself (Isaiah 46:9-10). He leads us there little by little (Deuteronomy 7:22).
You cannot bear God’s reproach and not enjoy His glory. When you keep pressing after God, He keeps changing your level.
The Cost of Misdirection
As anointed as Jonah and Apostle Paul were, they missed God’s instruction and suffered humiliation in return; Acts 22:17-22, Jonah 2:2; 3:3. Misdirection can be costly if not dealt with.
Wonders of Divine Direction
1. It allays all fears (any direction that has fear, check it God is not there); 1 John 4:18, Psalms 23:4.
When God leads, fear clears the way.
2. Divine Direction secures supernatural victory (2 Samuel 25-26).
Your victory is guaranteed when God is the one leading you!
3. Divine direction keeps the guided ever refreshed (Psalms 23:3).
Riches cannot refresh you, especially if the source is not genuine. Only the leading of God refreshes.
Next Level Banquet Ministration
Serving God is your covenant guarantee for a continuous change of level. We have a next-level heritage in Christ. However, applied revelation changes one’s story, not stored revelation. Consistency in serving God changes people’s stories at all costs; Mark 3:17.
The next level is my heritage in Christ. I refuse to sell my birthright, so help me, Jesus!
The obedience of Faith is vital to our next levels in Christ. Obey God so he can change your story. Obedience may be costly, but the result is priceless. Hence, we don’t wait for the next level in the Kingdom; we serve to engage God’s commandments and experience them (Joshua 1:8, Psalms 11:3, Joel 1:12, Deuteronomy 28:47).
Every input in God’s Kingdom is a privilege (1 Chronicles 29:3-14). We experience a change of level by the timely response to God’s command (John 21:5). God does not reward effort made. He rewards results obtained.
God only leads forward; He doesn’t lead backward!
The next levels in the kingdom are triggered by obedience of faith. Obedience may be costly, but the result is priceless. The revelation you apply changes your level, not just the revelation you have. You must obey God’s commandment to command the next levels (Deuteronomy 28:1). The Next levels result from your delightsome obedience to God’s command. It takes joy to secure your harvest in stewardship; Deuteronomy 28:47, 1 Chronicles 29:3.
Your input in God’s Kingdom is a privilege. Every investment of time, resources, and energy in God’s Kingdom will return to you in multiplied form. God is not a usurper but a rewarder. Consistency in serving God changes people’s stories at all costs; Mark 3:17.
Serving God faithfully and fruitfully is a qualifier for your next-level package (Luke 19:17-19), and a timely response is required for your next-level change of story.
Qualifiers for Your Next Level
1. Serving God faithfully and fruitfully; Luke 19:19.
2. Dedication; John 12:26.
3. Commitment to soul winning; Isaiah 60:1.
4. Walking in the light of the Word.
