Believers Convention 2015 (London, United Kingdom)

Theme:  The Word of His Power

Day 1 – Evening session
(Wednesday, 26th August 2015)

Speaker One

Ministering: Rev. Helen Oyegoke

Hallelujah! Father we give glory to Your name. Thank You for calling us all God Almighty. Thank You for Your desire to take us to heights where You are. Thank You for the opening of everyone to an era that we must partake of. We must partake of this feast. No one shall be left without understanding.

We exalt You. Hallelujah.

We thank God for how He has helped us. As we know, He’ll keep being faithful to us.
I know a lot of us streamed the convention at Nigeria live; we’re trusting God that He’ll elect us here so that we’ll move to a higher level.

God is inviting His people.

The intention of God is that man should not live by bread alone (Matt. 4:4).

Matthew 4:4
“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God”.

Man was ordained to live by every word; by the power of God. Anyone who’s able to live by that ‘every word’ is living an exalted life. He’s living a powerful life. The essence of God’s word is to take us high. You know we live in a realm of man – a very low estate. God wants to take us and make us live in that high state where He lives.

John 1:1-5
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [2] The same was in the beginning with God. [3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. [4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men. [5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not”.

This ‘word’ here is a being – a person; He’s called logos from the beginning. He is God. Everything about God is in Him. The genetic code of God is in Him. He carries the seed of God. He is God.

1John 5:7-8
“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one”.

They refer to Him as the ‘Word’. He is God. The three of them are God.  Christianity is such a wonderful life. Not a religion. It’s a life by which man participates in God. That which makes God all in all, is that which God wants a man to begin to transact with.

John  1:3
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made”.

That is logos – the Word. He has been from the beginning. In that logos is also something called Rhema: spoken word.

Logos became flesh and dwelt among us. He came and had rhema. The rhema carries the exact substances that make up God. So when He came He described Himself as a sower. 
That seed is talking of the very Essence of God. When you see Anu (Rev. Kay’s daughter) you’ll see that she is from Rev. Kayode. She walks like her father, and she didn’t have to learn it. The logos came with His rhema; it contains everything about God and will produce nothing but God. 

John  10:34-35
“Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken … ”

That Word is able to produce God in a man and turn a man to God. The essence of preaching is to make gods out of men. God wants to raise
gods on Earth. The children of God are gods.  Nothing else can make them become like God except they see that which concerns God.

They described him as a quickening spirit. A life giving spirit.

John  14:6
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.

So His words are His essence. The words I speak unto you are His seed and life. Those are seeds of His essence. When they come to you they quicken you. The word of God is quick. It’s His very word. It’s of Him. The word of God is quick and powerful; sharper than any two edged sword (Heb. 4:12).

By the time we finish this meeting, your attitude will change. God will give you the ability to change. Your word have I exalted above my necessary food.

This isn’t a word you should joke with. It’s the very essence of God. It is of God. It has got God’s own word. When Christ Jesus came – the life -God Himself; He came with the word that had the ability to build and make.

Hebrews 4:12
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”.

When I was praying over this convention, He said
“the word is the document of making spirit”. God is spirit as we all know, but man is a spirit, a soul, and a body. So because of the way men are still wired even after being born again, there’s an aspect of man that still needs to be made spiritual; after my spirit has been born, my soul needs to born – it must  be made spiritual. And the best way to make a soul spiritual is by the ‘every word’ (Matt. 4:4).

1 Corinthians  3:1-2
“And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able”.

The nine gifts of the Spirit were operating in that church, but Paul said they were carnal. He could only feed them with milk, and not meat. When you’re ready for meat, it means that you’re ready to turn.

He said “are Ye not carnal?
You behave as ordinary men”.

1 Corinthians  3:3
“For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?”

To turn you from living carnally to living spiritual, such words must visit you.

Hebrews  4:12
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”.

The heart of man can hide things if the word doesn’t visit it. You can even say: “God I can’t go and hide under the chair, you’ll see me” but ‘No’ you can hide if His words doesn’t come to you.

Romans  2:16
“In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.”

The secrets of man must be judged according to the gospel, and His gospel comes through His words.

Like He said: “The words I speak to you are spirit and life” (John 6:63).

John 6:63
“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Thou will quicken me for Your commandments are Spirit and Life”.

His words are Spirit. Some people could not bear with His words, they left. Jesus looked at His disciples that stayed and asked if they are also going to go, but they said “No” we can’t go, You alone have the words of life (John 6:66-68).

1 John  1:1
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life …”

Kenneth Hagin said that the written word will lead you to the living word. When you interact with the spoken word, you’ll hold the living word.

When the word of God is revealed, the purpose is to drop God in us.

Acts 20:32
“And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified”.

His words are also called “the word of His grace”. That word has the ability to build you up to give you an inheritance.

A believer is nothing without that word. He/she will remain childish and unbuilt if he doesn’t receive those words that are of God. God wants to say “I will dwell in them; I’ll walk in them”.

2 Corinthians 6:16
“And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them ; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people”.

This is the promise of the New Testament. What is the promise? I (God) will dwell in them (Believers).

2 Corinthians  6:16-17
“And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”.

Each time you read this words in the scriptures: “Be not unequally yoked with unbelievers, What part art the temple of God with darkness?” They are His words coming to you to build you up, because you will truly be the temple of the living God. A temple is a built up structure.  He can’t live in a temple that isn’t built, that means we must be built up only by His words.

Pastor Thompson preached this message and it turned a lot of people around. You know I went home and asked God to reveal the idols in me. We must desire Truth in the inward part. What does truth does? It cleanses the inward parts.

2 Corinthians  6:18
“And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”

2 Corinthians  7:1
“Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God”.

Your body will now be the dress of the almighty God. When you lift up your hand it’s God lifting His Hand. The inheritance of being built up as a temple of God is so that God will be built up in man.

Genesis  15:1
“After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.”

God is our final destination;  He’s our reward. We must value Him more than everything.

Acts  20:32
“And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.”

The building cannot be done unless God’s substances are being done in you. That which will house God is God.

2 Corinthians  7:1
“Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

When I was a young convert. There was this teacher we had and he had this song:

(The song)
Something more than gold
Something more than gold
The word of God in the heart of man is something more than gold **Song ends**

God’s word is to be desired more than gold. When you have His words, it’ll bring rubies and gold to you as an addition.

Matthew  6:33
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Other things will follow you when you obey God.

When I was young I went through persecution. All kinds of words: like “You stupid girl, why did you go to school to carry holy bible all around”.

I asked God and said this is becoming too much; am I doing the right thing? God answered me: “the wise ones seek the Creator of all things”.
Everything will bow down to you because you house the Creator of all things.

Paul said we are able ministers of the New Testament. Paul said we preach not of the letter but of the spirit (2 Corinthians 3:6). What it brings to you is eternal. Life is coming to you by words. The word of His power. You know, what we should pray for is reverence for God’s word. Ability to live the life of His word.

Ephesians 2:19-22
“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit”.

Is that not beautiful for God to inhabit you. God wants you to be His residence.

Acts  7:49
“Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?…”

He’s saying Heaven is My office. You don’t live in your office. God will consume anything that isn’t of Him. He can’t dwell in anything lesser than that which is built of Himself, and that’s why He wants to build us up by His very own materials which will come by His words.

Acts  20:32
“And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.”

Are you going to be built? Please “Receive with meekness the engrafted word of God which is able to save your souls” (James 1:21).

The saving of your soul is your building. As you’re being saved,  you’re turning from flesh to spirit. 

Isaiah  55:8-9
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts”.

Those ways are communicated to us by His words, so that man can dwell where God is; where their senior brother (jesus) is also.

May God help our hearts to receive His words with meekness. May we find grace to obey His words. Amen.
