Believers’ convention 2015
Day 4 – Evening Session
Pastor Thompson Ehima
God is in the midst of His people. Prophet Zechariah spoke of the Lord being mighty in the midst of His people. The Lord will be seen with so much might in our midst today. Let us get our hearts ready for the word to gain entrance. There’s a benefit for this day, and with hearts full of expectations ,we’ve come before You our Lord.
Pastor Dimeji’s Charge:
I appreciate the grace of God in the house, and the order in the Spirit. The atmosphere is filled with love and orderliness; indeed, God is doing something awesome in our midst. I see this gospel going very far, and I pray that grace will carry us. This gospel of Christ will bring healing.
As I saw my brother, Brother Grzes Dabrowski, I remember, that indeed, sons of God will arise round the earth and gather irrespective of tribe,tongue, race e.t.c. Our true identity is in the spirit. God is raising a company of spirits (spirits as in the quickening order) on the earth. I see pure love in the house- that is what Heaven is doing.
Our desire is to see Your face, Lord. A company of people will rise, singing “Hosanna”, and I see You doing that here in Lagos. Father, we give You praise. Heaven will keep this work going, it shall not be aborted; it will increase and not diminish. These songs, the songs of “Hosanna” shall spread all over the earth.
Father, we thank You for the working of Your grace and Your Faith;even the Faith of the Son will sustain us. He is able! He that began a good work is able to complete it.
Tongues and Interpretations.
“I have led you, saith the Lord. I have led you from one point to another. I have caused fountains to open to you in previous seasons. This season, I am taking you further in the spirit; further into deeper things, and I will cause them to spring forth and open up for you in this place. Doors are being opened, and I’m granting you entrance. You will drink the freshness of My life and My love. I will cause you to know My love, and the things which pertains to My love and pass knowledge.Yea! Yea!! Yea!!! It is open. Yea! It is open. It is a great fountain; it is open. I am opening it, no one else can- for this pertains to my Father, and only Me can open it, and I have been granted by My Father to open it. A great fountain… and I will also take it to nations.Throughout this place will this fountain spring forth. Nations will come to drink and draw from it. My people who are scattered abroad will come and drink- for my Father has opened it.
Ministering: Rev. Kayode Oyegoke
It is a great thing to teach about the seven churches. It takes the Spirit of truth to unveil truth to us. Don’t gather materials of truth without the pathway of truth itself. The Holy Ghost will guide and teach us all truth, because guidance and leadership are needed when it comes to truth. Some will study all night without the help of the Lord, but when it is God opening truth to you, you will do little and sometimes, God teaches in bits, stops, and then continues later. At such times, I’m left with no other choice than to trust the Holy Ghost. We can’t divide the truth by head knowledge and mental skills; it’s the Holy Ghost that moves to unveil truth. Humility and meekness are key things in the spirit.
The anointing has to be present before I can teach these things. Sometimes we have to journey before some things can be opened. We have to be led in the path of truth for truth to be opened. God won’t give you more than the path you have walked.
Guidance and leadership is very necessary in breaking into things. God would lead you to break forth into things. I have to trust the Holy Ghost so that we would be a right workmanship who are worthy of our profession. All the part of the Lord is truth and meekness; meekness means allowing the Holy Ghost.
Revelation 2 :1-3
“Unto the angels of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; 2.
I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: 3. and hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.”
I want to teach about the ministry of names. Names are works.The work the churches are called to do are names.The patience is as a result of the name “for my name sake”. That is the labour of the Saint. Why did God call us out? He called us out to labour.
For the work of the golden candlesticks is inward labour, something the church was destined to do and this labours are names “… for his name’s sake” – Psalm 23:3
That is the first labour of the saint or the first works of the saint.The meaning of name sake is the same name or likeness of name. Bible doesn’t make mistake.The first name is to produce likeness.
“By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:”
The grace came to minister the gospel.The reason we are made Apostles is so that among all nations many would obey him for his name;obedience to the faith.
There is the script of obedience in the spirit which is faith and the faith is for his name.
When we talk about the faith and the name, they are one. So when Jesus talks about faith He says “my name is faith that must be obeyed”.
Jesus’ name is a specie of name that he carry and that made him peculiar. The word JESUS is like a brand for what is inside, Jesus who is faith and the faith meant only to get to his father and without that faith no one can get to His Father. Many faith has come but has not reached God’s presence but there was only one man who broke through God’s presence by his name (Faith).
That faith is also a manner, a way, a path, an obedience, that the Father designed that man should use to come to him and it was branded after His son. And His son became the Author and the Finisher of that faith.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
God wants me to talk tonight on this. Workmanship means God’s craft, design and works. I am a work of God.
To ruin you it would take a work. Angels are works and if you are not yet a work, they won’t consider you to handle an angel because you have not been worked upon.
“No one can come to the father except by me”, this has been preached to unbelievers,Although it is a ministration for those that are in the faith.The workmanship is your faith.
Creation is also born. His hands has no business in re-creating you.You are a product of the inward. You were brought forth from the womb of God. You were not created like the angels were. Angels are God’s artistic ability; but the new man is God’s offspring.
A man can’t make another man. A man can make robots, but cannot make his own son: it will take the involvement of genes (seed) to birth one’s child.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
We are God’s workmanship created unto good works. You are a work. God ordained us in Christ Jesus to walk in good works. We do good works with our legs (Spiritual leg – as in our heart). When your feet is not moving, work is not being done.
“By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name…”
Obedience is what we have been ordained to do, and faith is what we have been called to obey (do). As we do faith, works are being done. “Good works” are “faith works”.
(Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life. [1Tim. 6:12]).
“1. Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; 2. I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars…”
When you are doing the work of faith, you ought to be bearing burdens. Some ministries do not have legs, but hands; this is not the order of priests. The biggest toe of the toes of priests, which are the part of the toes that move the rest of the toes on the feet, are anointed with oil. The “biggest toe” of the feet is known to be the king of the toes. Their thumbs and ears were also anointed.
For priestly works to be done, we must walk by the Faith of the Son. If we are not walking, then we are not working. Work is not done when the feet is not involved.
Man loves to work. By nature we are machines. So many of us are faster than our legs: we cannot do the work of faith. If you are lame, and doing ministry, you won’t be doing what God wants.
1 John 3:8
“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” The works of the devil are not the oppressions of the devil. The real work of the devil is inward, not seen without. The reason people sin is because of works that have been done in them.
“1. And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2. Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3. Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.”
Satan works within us. Obedience is as a result of multiplications of good works. Before Lucifer fell, he was walking (working) in the midst of the stones of fire (Ezekiel 28:14). This walk depicts a measurement of a dimension of life upon the mountain of God. Lucifer was walking on the mountain of God by faith.
A holy mountain is a mountain of faith; it’s a holy place. The Holy place is a place of the seven golden candlesticks, and a place of the feast. The seven lamps have seven horns that are blown. When these horns are blown, preaching is in progress. You can’t preach except you are a seer.
The first works is for Jesus’ name. I am persuaded that when Jesus arrived at Jordan, He had already gotten His first name, and He then it took Him another three years to gain His second name. Though Jesus were a son (in the first name), He still went on to learn obedience for the second name.
The Scripture talks about what the Spirit is saying to churches. What the Spirit is saying to the churches is for the undoing of the work of Satan. Satan is a priest who fell; he’s a being who stayed away from the path God set for Him: he works against that which he was made for.
When you are not preaching the Son, you are not undoing the works of Satan. Satan is very wise; he gives you other works to do, so you don’t touch his own work. Lucifer’s sin was not a one day thought, it was a gradual work.
God made Lucifer perfect in wisdom. Cherubs are perfect beings of this present world. They are works made with precious stones. Gold, one of the compositions of Lucifer, is a very precious metal in the Spirit; they represent the depths of God. Lucifer had gold, and so he could go for gold.
Lucifer was merchandising with himself: he was exchanging his goods (works): he turned faith to unbelief, and love to hate. He took time to expire life and it took time. He also preached these things he had perverted to the stones of fire. These stones of fire partook in his iniquity, and became dark.
I have shown you it takes merchandising for works to be done: Satan traded with his soul, destroyed his life, and is also teaching men how to destroy life. Satan wants the church to submit to him, and the way they work. His desire is to make children of obedience sons of disobedience. Have you heard of the anti-Christ? He’s that man that will allow Satan finish his works in him.
I saw a movie that projected that the anti-Christ does not have parents; that’s not true. Don’t also think the anti-Christ will come out from a rural area, rather than a porsche place. The anti-Christ is a man with the mysteries of sin, and knows how to develop it. If you go to developed countries, all they teach as subjects is an anti-Christ program; it’s the reason their kids are very self-willed. Kids abroad are self willed. What they teach in their schools is now beyond arithemetics; they teach their students how not to allow anyone infringe on their rights.
This was the same thing Satan taught angels: telling them they had their own will, and should think outside Elohim. Satan’s influence is so great: he shouts and sings freedom to creatures. While doing all of these, Satan didn’t tell his victims that such a lifestyle already led to his death.
How many of you know that when all the angels sinned, God never provided redemption: They have been condemned to partake of the lake of fire, because they have died the second death (not the first death, because they sinned willfully: knowing what was right and wrong, and what it means to have followed God.You can’t disobey the Lord neither desecrate His temple if you have not had His will.
Satan was the one teaching rebellion. He poses questions like- “Why submit to Elohim? Can’t we become like God? (independent ).” This is the reason men wondered at the anti-Christ: they worshipped his image, and said “Who is like unto the beast?” Hannah sang to the Lord, saying, “Who is like unto thee, O Lord? Always doing wonders.” This is to assure men of the lying wonder of the beast whom Satan worked.
Satan hates church because she is a custodian of the obedience of faith. Satan has vowed that we will not carry out this obedience.
Work is not done when you are not undoing disobedience. When the anti-Christ will be revealed with the name of blasphemy, he’ll cause swift destruction. It’s no wonder his hands are like the paws of a bear. That bear, in scriptures, was the kingdom of Persia as seen by Daniel. A bear can smash skulls into pieces with its paws. A bear can remove trees with its paws. There was a time I saw a bear deal with two tigers: with its paws, it carried both of them and threw them. When the Tigers were tired, they left.
The anti-Christ has the mouth of Babylon and the body of Greece. When we talk about Greece, we talk about wisdom.The height of the Greece Kingdom is what seduces us. Seducing spirits are kingdoms of this world, and they are placed to stop the obedience of faith. Every bit of disobedience you make affects evil spirits, and the more the heaven above us is free.
You need hind’s feet to tread upon the high places (Psalm 18:33). The hind is an animal that has four feet. Our feet has to be made like the hind’s. God speaks the mystery of the hind to us, until the testimony is formed (Psalm 29:3-5). God’s voice causes the hind (a four-footed beast) to calf (bear young). He told Job this mystery, but Job did not understand. It takes four priests to carry the Ark of the testimony: two in front, and two behind (this is the mystery of the hind.) Animals rendered as clean, in Israel, are all four-footed beasts. It will take a priest who has legs to enter. The four beasts around the throne have feets like that of the horse.
The Word of God is a two-edged sword, and you can’t enter the kingdom when you don’t have the characteristics of the Word.
The first name is the ladder of God that runs from the earth back to God, and this ladder is called faith- Christ. This first name is Jesus’ name.
Jesus asked his disciples to baptise men in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:19). The work of the Holy Spirit is the milk of the church. It is the Holy Ghost that prepares us for the work of the Son and His Father. Signs and wonders are all foundations of God’s true works; they are preparations for the works. The church will not be effective when the Holy Ghost is not in operation.
Apostle Paul came with the first name (the name of the Son); he was anointed to preach the name of the Son (Acts 26:16-18, 9:15-16).
Paul bearing the name of the Son means he will be built with the name, and that building are raised as a result of the Son’s revelations. The revelation of the Son is what constructs His name. It will take many revelations of the Son to get His name.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord: when someone comes in the name of the Lord, such a one has brought salvation.
The next name is the name of the Father. I thought I was going to teach the Father’s name straight-away tonight, but I started from the Son’s name. Jesus is the first work; His Father is the last work. Jesus has both works (names) inside of Him; that’s why He’s also called the everlasting Father (Isaiah 9:6).
“And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations…”
You are not an overcomer until you have kept God’s work till the end. The rod of iron, for the ruling of nations, is in the Father’s name and constituency.
You must carry the two works. Jesus started with the teaching of his name before the teaching of His Father’s name.
Satan dwells in people by works, so also God. Preachers that work to destroy Satan’s work are stars in God’s right hand. God uses stars to illuminate the candlesticks.
A star is he who has works in him, put there for the purpose of the church. In the book of revelations, John fell at that same place where the stars were, and he woke up from that same place. The work will be done by stars. For the work to be fulfilled, He uses these stars to further move the work. The church will not pass from death to light until these stars take their place.
We need to go over nations. God needs to take you from your own nation, if you will go over nations. If you are still in your nation, you can’t overcome Satan.
You can’t cross to the Father’s name, if you have not obeyed the Son: once you are done obeying the Son, the need for the Father arises. The Father is another work, and He is to be done by the church. The Father is a mysterious work that must be fulfilled by the church.
Having the Son does not mean you already have the Father. The holy place is a dark place; it is characterised by night. When God begins to kindle your light, with oil, you begin to receive understanding for the most holy. You need to wait in the holy place in patience, until your lights are full. There is a period of waiting and patience for you to come into the fullness of God.
Bullocks, animals used as sacrifices in the tabernacle of Moses, are sent to the church to turn them from the power of Satan to God. A bull is the testimony of faith which God committed to the Son, and we have all been ordained to carry it.
All animals allowed to come to God ended up dying. Jesus told me that the last sacrifice is to raise sons of the Holy Place, and teach them how to die; He said that’s the reason for the book of Hebrews.
Lambs are animals used for children (those within the camp), but when it comes to priests, bullocks are used.
Jesus is the propitiation for our sins, not ours only, but that of the whole world. When we are done with the course of the sanctuary, we are able to shout “Holy! Holy!!”
A ram is the perfect word of God; the bull is the good work of God. Jesus is not just good, but perfect. God is the Father of Lights, and in Him is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
I checked the Old Testament and I saw the order of priests, that their order of sacrifice is rams and bullocks. When God gives you revelations, He’s giving you animals to offer; and when you live by those revelations, you become an animal that can enter.
John brought the revelation of the Lord God Almighty. Check the book of Ezekiel- Any time cherubs appear, the Lord God Almighty is seen, not the Lord of hosts, like in the revelations of Isaiah.
Isaiah is the son of the Lord of Host, while Ezekiel is the son of the Lord God Almighty. The son of the Almighty is the son of love. John was also made to see the Lord God Almighty, and that’s the reason his epistles speak about love. John spoke about believing because he knew it was an important tool to come into love.
God told me the whole church will be moving, soon, into the “Almightiness” of God- the Father.
To see visions is to understand. Prophet Ezekiel and Apostle John are like the same. The book of Ezekiel is just like the books of John; it’s a compressed version of the books of John.
It is those who have the Word in them that will defeat the father of liars.
Under this canopy are provisions for removing things: seals have been broken.
Preachers should move from the camp into holy place; they will have more honour with the Father. Don’t worry: tithes may not increase, but be happy that the work of God is being done. The devil, whose works you are removing from people’s hearts, will attack you.
God Almighty will continue to reveal the depths of His mysteries to us, so that as His words go forth, the enemy scatters. God’s mysteries are consuming fire that causes Satan to let His (God’s) people go.
I pray, that as many that have heard this word, more will be revealed to us by the Holy Ghost. As we work as sons of God, the world will bow before us. May the Lord keep you and help you by all means, so you may stand, and be victorious.
We pray for your servant whom you have used today… This is a man that you have opened his eyes, and have given much power and authority; may this wisdom which is of great wisdom never leave him. As the prophecy which came today said, indeed the fountains of God, which God has opened today, will flow to nations. May your word continue to be alive till your old age.
Your teaching will continue to reign, our Father. We pray that you will never leave our church. Give us strength and power. This ministry shall grow in power. The Lord will keep His people.Amen.
