Believers Convention 2015 (London, United Kingdom)
Theme: The Word of His Power
Day 4 (Saturday, 29th August 2015)
Speaker One: Rev. Mrs Helen Oyegoke
2 Timothy 1:8-10 KJV
“Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;  Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,  But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel…”
God alone has immortality. He abolished death, and brought immortality to light. It’s only through the gospel that man can partake of Life and Immortality. That’s what Jesus said: “I have come so that they might have life”.
John 10:10 KJV
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”.
Life is in Him, and that’s the life we have been called to partake of. The Father has authorised the Son to quicken as many as He wills. To quicken you means to make you Live as the Living Father is Living. What God wants is for you to live. He will achieve that by giving you His commandments.
Psalm 119:72-73 KJV
“The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.  Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments”.
Thou will quicken us by Your commandments; for Your commandments are life unto us.
The son is speaking from the right hand side of the majesty on high. Why is He speaking from the right hand? It’s so that we can Hear and Live. Any saying that’s coming from God is to make the church live. His instructions are to make us leave the realm of carnality. When we remain carnal, we become too natural. We must become too hot for the natural. That’s why we must ascend by following His instructions.
Romans 8:1 KJV
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”.
Flesh is limited. We must let go of flesh to enter the spirit through His instructions. As many as have put on Christ are become Christ, and our soul must attain that which our spirit has attained. So we must not walk after the flesh (not walking after the desires and dictates of the flesh).
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new”.
If any man be in Christ, he’s a new creation. So we are expected to let go of flesh for our soul to walk.
We came into Christ Jesus by new birth. In the new birth, my spirit attained its peak state in Christ but my soul still needs to walk. This is manifested when you walk – “who walk not after the flesh” (Rom. 8:1). Your soul must walk not after the flesh.
Romans 8:2 KJV
“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death”.
When the word of God is coming to you, it’s the law of the spirit of Life in Christ Jesus that is coming to you. It’s coming to you is to make you free from the law of sin and death that is still in our soul.
You cannot accept the law except Jesus is preached to you. He is the law of the New Testament man; He is our commandment. When you’re learning him, you’re learning His law of life.
1 Corinthians 2:2 KJV
“For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified”.
Paul said, I only need to know Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Christ can’t be made known to you except He is unveiled and preached to you.
Real power is to set you free from sin and death. Do you want to be powerful? Go and learn Christ. In christ is the power to be set free from the law of sin and death. The power of God to set us free is in the gospel of Christ; the unveiling of Christ.
Romans 1:16 KJV
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek”.
It’s those who align to the power of God (the gospel of Christ) that will be set free from the law of sin and death.
There was a minister who was so much persuaded by the gospel he preaches. He had a church member who used to commit fornication. He told this member to keep coming to church where truth is being continuously dished out to him. After some time, the guy came back saying: “daddy I don’t feel like fornicating again”. He lost the appetite for fornication because he was exposed to truth. That’s what truth can do to a soul; it set you free from the law of sin and death.
Romans 8:4-8 KJV
“That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.  For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God”.
To be carnally minded is death. How? By not aligning to that which is being revealed to save our souls. That’s a separation from the power of God.
To be Spiritually minded is Life and Peace. How? By aligning my mind to that which is being revealed by the Son. That which is revealed is spiritual. As you hear more of what is being revealed, and you align with it in obedience, sin and death is taken down.
Romans 8:3 KJV
“For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh…”
Sin was laid on Jesus, and He automatically had to go to hell; to the lowest part of the earth. The moment He was quickened, He went up and sat at the right hand side of the majesty on high. He’s telling you that the way up is to die to flesh. The word of His power is the word of His righteousness.
Hebrews 1:8-9 KJV
“But unto the Son he saith , Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.  Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows”.
The throne is established in righteousness. When righteousness is revealed, we must walk by it. I need grace to live by every word that God speaks. As we yield to righteousness, we live. It is in obeying/walking that we live.
Romans 12:1-2 KJV
“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”.
How do I present myself to God? by yielding to God through His word.
Though you’re a believer, you can be serving sin. I told people at home that fornication issues are elementary sins.
When they begin to reveal sins of the heart to a generation, those are the people going to attain sonship. How do you overcome self centredness if you don’t overcome fornication. The devil hides in self; the devil fights you with self.
“They love not their lives unto death” (Rev. 12:11). We must not love our lives. Once we don’t love self, then we can align to what is being revealed.
Self centredness is the devil inside a man. What God is doing is to give you commandments to lay down your life. When you come to war with the dragon, it’s life for life. The only person who overcame him is one who didn’t love His life.
I can’t’t drop self in one day. I’m just saying we have to quicken our pace. God must help us. As we die, we live. The power of resurrection cannot be laid on people who are alive to flesh. Prefer your brother than yourself. Lay your life down.
Years back, the Lord gave me some brethren. He allowed them to step on me, and always wants me to get used to them because of where am going – to lay down my life for them. I told God: “give me people who are perfect for me to be able to lay my life down for them, not these ones. If I couldn’t bear those ones, it’s because of self. But when you look at God, He’s so selfless a Being. When we were yet sinners, He died for the ungodly. They are telling you to lay your life down because flesh is still too active.
Romans 6:16-18 KJV
“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?  But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.  Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness”.
I cannot come to life except I hear and obey righteousness. As I obey, I become quickened. When you obey, you are ascending from carnality and death. A time will come that there will be so much Life in the church
We are weak now because we haven’t heard enough of His Power which is the only true gospel of Jesus christ. May God quicken your ears to hear; may he quicken us by his commandments.
The reason for church is for the unveiling of Christ. I can only walk in Him by walking in His revelations. This revelation is according to what you can take.
1 Corinthians 3:1 KJV
“And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ”.
There are some of His laws that you can’t bare now because of carnality, but He’ll help you. I pray he will raise us out of carnality.
Philippians 3:8-10 KJV
“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,  And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:  That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death…”
Self must go; we must count all things loss for to gain Christ. You can’t hold on to self and expect to gain Christ.
The More of him I know, the more access I have to the power of His resurrection. The more I know Him, the more am able to drop flesh.
From now on, the rate at which you live for God will be accelerated. You’ll obey faster and quicker. The secret to a supernatural life is in that hearing of the supernatural word, and obeying it.
Sid roth (A preacher) was asked, what is the secret of this supernatural lifestyle, he only said: “quick obedience to God”. May we find grace for a quick obedience as His instructions come to us.
Let’s begin to thank him!
