Believers’ Convention 2015 (London, United Kingdom)
Theme: The Word of His Power
Day 2 – Evening session
(Wednesday, 27th August 2015)
Speaker One : Reverend Mrs. Helen Oyegoke.
Let Your will be done as it is in heaven. Let Your will be done in our lives; in our midst. Amen.
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”.
Entering into the Kingdom is entering into the will of God. The power of dominion is accessed by will-doers.
Pastor said to us, “don’t be too high for the getting of the kingdom”. There are many things that we posses and things that we run after that makes us too high. One thing that ‘will’ does, is to make you little.
This will of God that we are talking about, can’t be accessed except the Word of His Power is made known to you. Let’s look at the Lord’s prayer: “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13)
This word is the word of the world to come. This ‘world to come’ abides forever because the Word abides forever.Anything coming out of Him has the tools for abiding. So when the will is revealed to us; it’s then that God has called us into His kingdom. Before God can commit the kingdom to us He must try you with His word.
The essence of that word is that man will live by it. That’s what Jesus came to express on earth.
“Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work”.
It’s living by that which God calls right that will make us endure.
“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.”
God is looking for a people that will live the way Jesus lived. Jesus lived by the word of His power – believing it. The believing, is agreeing and being willing to align with what God has said.
Believe in Him whom He has sent – that is the work of God; believing what Jesus stands for. Anytime Jesus is being revealed, I should align with what is revealed.
“Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.”
In the Old Testament, they did a lot of sacrifice just to worship the Lord, but my hears hast He open in the new testament so that I can hear His instructions. When His words are coming to you, they are instructions coming to you . This is how I hear instructions; when His words are coming to me. The sacrifice they always offer in the old is no more the order of worship. Submitting to the word of God is what will lead us to a total worship.
“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”.
Worshipping the father in Spirit and truth can be made possible when His words are coming to you. You can’t separate worshipping in spirit and truth from His words. You must hear His words and Obey them for you to worship Him in spirit and truth.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.
When you obey the word of His power, you are killed all day long (Rom. 8:36). You die daily by yielding to the word of God that is being revealed. As you obey God’s instructions, you are dying to flesh (Self); but in dying, you are having authority in His dominion. You are not dying to flesh for nought, as you die, you are taking over authority in His dominion.
You have to hear supernaturally (Your spiritual hear must be opened). Without that ‘hearing’, you can’t serve God in Spirit. You are not a spiritual worshipper if you can’t hear what the Spirit is saying as His words are coming to you.
Before convention we prayed every day for two months, and during those prayers, He was battering us. The Lord told me: “I don’t eat bulls, I want a contrite heart and a broken spirit; the power and ability to say I’m wrong even when you’re actually right” (to let go of your right). Such a man is being granted access to power.
“Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.”
What the Lord needs is quick yielding, if not you’ll forget.
A season has come upon the earth. Believe it or not, God is desperate for men who’ll walk with Him.
“For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward…”
How do we join ourselves with Him? By living by the word of His power; by that which the Father is speaking.
“How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?”
Anyone who’s able to lay hold on this word and align himself with it, will speak the ‘world to come’.
“For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak”.
You who has been quickened together with Jesus must speak the world to come. The believer is actually higher than the heavens. For our soul to be confirmed to be like our spirit, we must hear the word of the ‘world to come’. You must hear it now in the present, not when you get to the world to come. Entrance to the ‘world to come’ is by taking heed to the words that are being spoken now.
He’s bringing the power of the ‘world to come’ through His words that are coming to us now, and that’s why we must heed His words lest we miss out.
1 Corinthians 6:17
“But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit”.
Anything lesser than the ‘world to come’ is not for you. It’ll give believers kwashiorkor. By reason of what you feed on, you can miss out in God. When satan looks at you and you’ve been feeding on junk he’ll know that he can tabernacle with you.
His words should be our food – man shall not live by bread alone but by every word. (Matt. 4:4)
We must hear what the Lord is saying. That is our life. A Life of dominion can’t be accessed without His power.
“Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.”
When the word comes and you live by it, you become supernatural; having access into the ‘world to come’. I don’t want to appear in that world to come and be a nonentity. I don’t want to be in the new earth; those are carnal Christians.
Philippians 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
What is conversation? It’s a lifestyle: a culture. Our culture is heavenly.
You know culture is very important. Some Nigerians now want to go to Southern Africa to get a girl who is cultured. If a normal human being is attracted to a well cultured girl, much more, men should be attracted to the lifestyle of the kingdom (the lifestyle of our Lord). Heavenly culture is a culture that is by dominion. It’s only the lifestyle of the kingdom that can access the “world to come’.
The word of God is also defined as the thoughts and ways of God.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.”
Say: “God open my ears, let me hear at a higher frequency”. As we hear, we align to His ways. When you hear His ways (words), harden not your heart.
“Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.”
The secret of the ‘world to come” is also His secret of rest.
