Believers’ Convention 2015
Day 7 – Morning Session (Saturday, 22nd August 2015)
Ministering: Reverend Mrs. Helen Oyegoke
God is calling us to a very high life. The purpose of the testimony is to make us high beings. It is the testimony of the Divine order. The Divine God is giving us that which makes Him who He is.
I asked God, How can you think of giving man what makes You Who You are?, and I began to also think of man; why are we like this? It is because of the kind of testimony we carry; we carry mere men’s testimony.
We are not called to be carnal. The intention of the Father is that we are supernatural. Man was called to be supernaturally controlled by supernatural laws but man lost it. However, God didn’t lose hope on this initial plan. God is mindful of us and wants to make us know His testimony. There is a testimony inside Him; which makes Him to be God. He wants to put it in us so things that run Him can run us also.
Testimony is meant for servants; it is the manual for service. John wanted to worship his fellow brethren that had the testimony because of the glory that accompanied him
“And he said to me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand”.
God is the owner of the testimony and He is ready to give it to man.The testimony is not meant for angels, and God is awesome for Him to commit such a thing to man. You would begin to appreciate who God is. God’s intent for man is for him to be supernatural and spiritual. What God is looking for is a man like the firstborn (Christ).
This testimony will also be taught to many brethren. Jesus was able to attain that height of becoming God, because of the testimony that the father taught Him, and that’s how the testimony became “The testimony of Jesus”. We need to be taught. The testimony can only be communicated through teachings. We have to learn. The way we learn natural things are different from the way we learn spiritual things, because they are supernatural.
We have to learn from Him to have the testimony broken down for us by revelation. Brethren are people who carry glory; they are glorious people, and the glory comes through the testimony.
Receiving the testimony of Jesus will turn us to another man like the first born. We will be turned to quickening spirits. Our souls will prosper by this testimony.
Let’s allow God to work in us and build us. Idols in the souls can only be dealt with by the testimony, and the nature of Jesus can only come to us by the testimony. He has been converting us, and would keep converting us. The secret of His strength is in His being. Brethren are men who should come to glory; they are men of glory. You must learn His wisdom to come into glory. God is not unveiling Himself in a little measure. He wants His glory to come to man, but we must keep pressing on.
“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy”.
The wisdom of glory is that it will keep you in the realm of God; you’ll be staying out of flesh. Even if it causes you being cheated, maintain peace. A testament that doesn’t know peace operates in us and cause us not to be at peace. This testament is a testament of the quickening order; our conversation is in heaven.
The reason you get offended when you are insulted is because of your reputation, which is flesh. We have to die and become low. Some of us are too high, even higher than the gate and walls of the kingdom. Come down! Grace has to visit you in order to reduce you. More of God is actually more of His revelation.
There are a lot of things that gives you an edge against your brother; anointing, age, education etc, but you must be low no matter the edge you have. May you die to such edges that would not allow you enter the kingdom. When they are bringing testimony, you have to drop your own things that serves as an edge against you receiving His own testament. You must disregard whatever edge you posses and regard His glory.
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it”.
God is calling us to a high life; an exalted life, which cannot be made possible without the testimony. We are going to the house of the Lord for He will teach us, and the reason for teaching is so that we will learn to walk in the path that is high.
We must keep the sayings of this book. Keeping it is walking by it. We must keep and live by it. Your ordination is to live by that which is in Him (Christ). The Lord said to me that every law He gives to me should be obeyed by me. How will He remove our iniquities? It is by the writing of those laws on the tablets of our hearts.
I remember Kenneth Hagin,
who God instructed to pray. God then asked him: “will I tell you to do what I will not do?” Kenneth Hagin said ‘No’. So what will make us Spirits is to obey God’s commandment. Those commandments are actually what runs God Himself. When they want to make a spirit out of a man, they begin to introduce him to commandments. The reason for this is so that They will take you from amongst men, and take you to the heights of God.
“And many people shall go and say, Come you, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem”.
If Zion is not taught of the Lord, they would not be raised above every mountain. They were taught the law of God, and that is also what can help us to rise above darkness. In the same way, He is giving us His testimony. God is calling us to make His testimony our life; and that is our ordination.
We are changing as we receive this commandments, we may not feel it, nor even know it, but we are changing as we receive His instructions. Enoch didn’t know he was changing as he was walking with God. He might not even had known he would be translated the day he was. He was just busy following God. He must have been an odd man in his environment when we consider the darkness in men at that time, but he survived those days through God’s instructions. I believe it was an instruction that actually took Enoch.
The life in Christ Jesus is our life. Let us not be too particular about showing forth manifestations, all we need to be particular about is learning. You become renewed in your mind by His revelation.
The laws of the Spirit must be given to you. Renew your mind by the thinking of spiritual thoughts that will take you out of darkness. The only way the church is to avoid being captured by evil is to press into being spiritual. The light that has come is the light of the lord. We have to keep what we have heard.
By this meeting, your hearing has been quickened. You won’t wonder how people have been hearing from God, you will also hear from now on. If you cannot hear, there’s nothing you can keep.
You will see more than you have been seeing before. We need to see Him. May you see Him. You won’t see nonsense; you will see Him as He is. You will see him during teachings. Am praying all these prayers because you cannot offer anything unto the Lord until you have sight. A contrite heart and a humble spirit should be our heart cry. Grace will appear to us to walk the Way God walks.
We can’t walk this life unless the testimony communicates Grace. It’s a life of sacrifice and it is by Grace, for the testimony will turn you to a sacrificial lamb. The way to the holy of holies was not yet made manifest, but Jesus entered with His own blood, so anyone that wants to enter must enter with his life laid down. We must lay down our lives if we want to enter; our ways must be laid down. When He is teaching us His ways, let’s respond to Him.
We are being called to a high life. A calling that will change us to that exact man in the mind of God.
He would teach us His ways; He would teach us His path.
Let us begin to pray!
