Believers’ Convention 2015
Speaker 2 : Rev. Kayode Oyegoke:
1 John 1:5-7
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
The word “all sin” makes up sins, and all sins are the product of darkness.
1 John 5:4
“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
The things that are born of God are not made with hands. Satan was God’s creation; He was God’s hand work. Satan can understand anything that comes through ‘hand-creation’. All the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth were made, but for overcoming to be established, God had to go back to His insides and employ the tool of birth. Birth process is a working. The fertilizing of an ovary through the sperm is a work within, not a work on the outside. Everything that is being born is an inward working, but that which is being made is a working of the outward. Our spirits have been born, it is a new creation; a creation not of hands – a new specie.
The soul will be given birth to through a process; don’t refuse the birthing process of the soul. The new birth is very easy, it happens within the twinkle of an eye, but the birthing of the soul, which is the salvation of the soul, is not as easy as the new birth because it is not immediate. This is because the soul is the seat of will. God downloaded birth to our spirit instantly at the new birth, but the soul’s birth is a gradual process. The soul will not receive a thing until it allows it. The soul is like a woman that needs to be wooed, you will try this and try that until the soul is moved.
Every soul must come back to the Maker by learning the Spirit. It’s not easy to bring back the soul. From the days of the apostles to the time the 7 trumpets began to blow upon Saul of Tarsus, it has always been to make the soul come back to God. Paul was found, and because he had to minister the mystery of little children, he had to be made a child. Paul was a minister of soul conversion. All the messages of repentance that we preach to unbelievers is actually for the church. A sinner cannot repent, what he needs is to be quickened (born again) first of all. It’s we believers that need to repent; you can’t repent till you’re born again.
“Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls”.
You can’t receive the word if you’re not meek. The “word” has to be received in meekness. Meekness is not an easy thing to attain. God had to incapacitate His servants in the Old Testament to make them meek. But in the New Testament, God had to make us born again first so that we can learn meekness. Just as the spirit is born again, so also the soul will be born, but then, that of the soul is a process; It is called “being born again”.
1 Peter 1:23
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.
Where did we get corruption from? (2 Peter 1:4). There are different kinds of seed – corruptible and incorruptible seeds. Corruptible seeds are seeds for things that pass away, for it is only corruptible things that pass away. The Bible is a book that contains many seeds and these seeds have made up different messages. There are messages that are good, but corruptible. However, in the parable of the sower, we read, “…Behold, a sower went forth to sow.” (Matt. 13:3). It is the incorruptible seed that Jesus was talking about here. It’s not every man that can find access to the incorruptible seed, to carry it and not corrupt it. One corrupts the seed by using it for one’s own advantages.
2 Corinthians 2:17
“For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.”
In the days of Paul, there were preachers who understood Paul’s messages, but they tried to corrupt it. This seed of God should not land on corruptible hearts. Heaven guards its seed, They don’t distribute it anyhow. Sometimes, heaven gives us corruptible revelations because They know we can’t handle and preserve the incorruptible one. When you’re not faithful with unrighteous mammon, you can’t bear the incorruptible – Luke 16:11. Mammon is the teacher of corruption.
2 Peter 1:3-4
“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
What heaven wants to do is to move the church from the corruptible to the incorruptible. The world passes away because of corruption. Heavens and earth will pass away: They will pass, but another creation will pass faster, and that’s the one satan designed.
10: And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands.
11: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment”.
The heavens and the earth will wax old as doth a garment not by the forces of death, but by the forces of materiality. This limits the intelligence of Satan; he doesn’t know the characteristics of the everlasting beyond that which will pass away. Satan is seeking for immortality so that he can last.
When Satan fell, he became corrupted and created his own cosmos. That corruption is very dangerous and it is called sin; sin was found in Lucifer. He didn’t commit fornication or adultery or stealing. What he committed was his own way; not being subject to God. Satan belongs to the order of angels (Cherubs) that do “His(God’s) commandments”, not their own – Psalm 103:20. Satan became tired of doing the commandement of God, he wanted to do his own. In looking for his own, a seed was born that will run another course in the universe and Satan began to minister the intelligence of that seed to other angels. Be careful with seeds; “… take heed what ye hear…” (Mark 4:24).
Initially, he was ministering light to the stones of fire but later, he began to minister darkness. Some angels were kept by the sovereign will of God from his ministrations, while others fell with Satan and this led to a rebellion. All that fallen angels want to do is to preserve this seed of Satan. Immediately this angelic dimension finished, God moved to the earth and made man. Man had peace and governed the earth effortlessly. God gave the earth into Adam’s hands by words. Then Satan corrupted him to take of the corruptible tree. If high angels fell for that trick, how much more of Adam who was even lower than the angel? What was he teaching? It was the same thing he taught Eve: “and ye shall be as God, knowing good and evil” (Gen. 3:5).
Spirits like wisdom, they won’t take gold if you bring gold to them; they are close to spiritual materials. The very thing that was given to us is what we are running from, yet, those are the very things the angels desire to look into (1 Peter 1:12). God knows that we don’t know the meaning of it, but the angels know that wisdom is the key to all things. They wanted the wisdom to be like God, and God hid it from the foundation of the earth. If Satan could access it, he would be like the Most High.
How many of you want to become “somebody”? Check it, it may be the somebody of sin you are desiring to be. One of the signs and fruits of this seed is wanting to be “somebody”, and they (Satan and his angels) preach this to us all the time. Satan was saying to Eve, “you will be, you will be….” That is what he must have sold to the angels. What will you give to angels to rebel against God? He would have told them that God is covering something that He doesn’t want them to know, but he ,Satan, has all things and that he can beat God at his game.
He was spreading this evil seed, and the angels by deception, nurtured and rebirthed them and they became evil and darkness. I am not preaching terror or fear, I am preaching deliverance. God knows that His own intelligence is higher than man. The information in the chromosomes of this seed of God is not what biology can find out. God will use His own instruments to expand that seed so that it will be preached out until the character and all the virtues embedded in the seed is fully unveiled.
Any man God loves, He will give this seed. If God says, “I will bless you with the whole earth”, tell Him “no, I want this seed”. You may be a child of God and know nothing about this seed. We need to be pregnant with this seed. God is dropping in us His seed until our soul is totally metamorphosized by the activities of this seed, and we inherit all that is in it, even till our souls become the home of Jehovah. Any where God will dwell, He would ask them to overlay it with Gold. Gold represents purity and preservation. A time will come when we will no longer see you, it will be only this seed.
The day you finally understand this seed, Satan will send messengers to make you drop it. When I started having a grasp of this seed, I went through strange things, and as a result of what I was going through, my younger brother vowed that he would never follow God. My family wondered what was happening to me. I began to see.
I went to a fellowship one day and the woman of God said: ”God said I should tell you that there is a seed of greatness in you”. It is not me. It’s the seed that is creating challenges for me. Your seed will create problem for you. Joseph’s dream created problem for him.
These spirits will not take it lightly with you. They are older than you. What they’ve been seeking, God gave you freely. They want you to enter heaven weeping for wasting all your life on corruption. God knew that some of us can’t bear the discipline of transition. So, He would call them home first and then begin to teach them. This is His word kept secret since the world began. This is what the angels desire.
Have you ever seen angels being persecuted or sleeping? An angel can stand for 10 years and not sleep. God has to wait for our weaknesses. Why would God give this seed to man? Satan would have told God to leave man alone that man would not prevail. But God will say if that is so, I will become a man and show man how to bear my seed.
Verily he took not the nature of angels,but He took on Him the seed of Abraham.
God became like us- reduced Himself. The song the angels sang when Jesus was born was “glory to God in the highest, good will to man”. This goodwill is the Good word of God. We waited for it for a long time, but the Almighty had finally chosen a place of abode to finally dwell in the flesh. Imagine my Father God, crying in the night with feeding bottle in his mouth. They changed diapers for Jesus. Jesus allowed himself go through that process. This was humility. It was horrendous. Terrible. Jesus peed. Only that Jesus did not have stomach ache. He also cried like a baby.
Don’t play with this seed. Even at this helpless state, Herod was looking for him. It was not just Herod: It was actually Satan. Even when your seed is small, Satan is still interested. Let your seed grow even though you haven’t seen it grow. Herod knew that the best time to kill the seed is when it is helpless.
Deut. 28 says we will not cast our young. Some of us murder that child and abort the baby of God growing in us. The spirit of abortion is a terrible one. I pray that you won’t abort your seed. It took 9 months to build the tabernacle. You will bear that child. This prayer is very great. One greater than a prayer to be rich. You will be a bearer of incorruptibility and you will also be incorruptible. Your womb shall be holy and cleansed. You will neither be barren nor unfruitful. The womb of your soul that has been barren, I say be healed. In this order both male and female gives birth, and not just female(s) only. Your souls will become the womb of the morning.(2 Peter 1:8)
…From the womb of the morning, Thou hast the dew of thy youth….
You will faint not. Your youth shall be renewed like the eagles.
Anything I say will be so!
I see God cleansing your soul by the power of God, by the spirit of holiness, scraping corruption from some souls. Darkness depart. The seed remaineth. This seed will remain. It will remain.
High priest of our calling, as I lift my hands to you, bless us. May your power flow. Let the anointing on the head of Aaron flow from his head unto his skirts. This is where the Lord commanded blessing, even life, forevermore.
Let your ministry flow.
I am praying for weak souls. If you know your soul is weak stand up.
Kos’agbara to dabi ti Jesu

Kos’agbara to dabi ti Jesu
Agbara, agbara, agbara to j’agabara lo
Jesus is standing here now. Can you all picture him? Open your hearts.
Strength is falling. Strength is coming on you. Move into higher strength.
“Hast thou not known, hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God fainteth not?”(Isaiah 40:28). We need to come here where we faint not.
Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
From that prophetic utterance that came just now, I want to talk about the word ‘tabernacle’.
There are two tabernacles.
The holy and the most holy.
The tabernacle of excellent strength is the Lord’s most holy place.
Bless ye the Lord, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
The realm of excellent strength.This is strong. The realm of absolute might.God wants us to come into the strength of the holy of holies.
John said: “I write unto you young men…who are strong”(1 John 2:13). That’s the first.
The second strength is “I write unto you fathers…”
All of us must be seen having excellent strength.
How many of you here wants to excel? Many of you are at a point where you can’t go past a point. The Lord just said you will go past it.
Talking to someone: Mummy ,He’s heard your prayer.You need strength. When someone is about to die, at times they’d faint. Paul said you need to push. There’s a strength when your other strengths are gone. The strength of the Lord is about to be made perfect in your life.
You don’t have strength when you look at your future. I see you already doing it. I’m seeing it. You’ll finish the course. You’ll keep the faith.
It’s a prayer upon the mercy seat. The throne of grace is the throne of mercy – a place of excellent strength.
Say to the weary one: “He will come and save you”.
I saw the Lord coming out from the holy of holies to draw us into strength.
Our battle – the greatest- is around the veil of entrance. There you’ll see tattoos of cherubims written on that veil. That’s where we war with the dragon.
Take us into the veil.
Take us behind the veil.
Give us excellent strength.
Make us excellent strength.
He has excellent name.
Your wombs have been healed. That Sahara desert has been touched. The wilderness has become a fruitful land. I see the heart jumping for joy. I see water flowing out of the desert.
Let’s thank the Lord Jesus.
Praying for all the ministers:
I pray for you to discover the way. See the way. May your eyes see the way and see the path.
See the path and hear instructions. I come against hindrances. Anoint the ears, tongues and toes.
Open the ears so they may hear Your voice!
