-Bishop David Oyedepo
First Word Session
Heavenly Father, again this first night, consciously, deliberately and within the depths of my soul and the souls of the men and women who are here, we ascribe all the glory, all the honour, all the majesty, all the events of the past 40 years to You and to You alone. Receive our Thanksgiving in the name of Jesus. No one or group of people have capacity to fulfill any prophetic Word, only Your hand can fulfill what your mouth has spoken.
Now for fulfillment of prophecies, over the past 40 years, the glory must return to you, accept our thanks in the name of Jesus.
For validating and re-validating the Liberation Mandate before our very eyes, receive our thanks in the name of Jesus.
For light, illumination, transformation, manifestation of all kinds, all through the last 40 years, receive our thanks in the name of Jesus.
Tonight, visit us as You have said. Let the end result of this feast be our launch into our Promised Land.
Let it mark the end of wandering for everyone.
Settle us in your appointed place, decorate us in your appointed place, enthrone us in your appointed place in Jesus precious name.
-This will be a turnaround feast for you.
-God will destroy your fears, rekindle your faith and establish your glorious destiny in Jesus precious name.
This is one event you will live to remember for many years to come.
What that implies is that wines are known to sustain their potency for years including for centuries. You walk through some shops in Europe, you will find some wine that are 200 years: “wine well refined”
The effect and impact of wine is long lasting and God is saying, “I am bringing you to a feast of fat things, a feast of wine well refined.”
-That means the impact of this feast will be long lasting.
-You will be singing the song of this event for many years to come
He got me some wine 1976 and it is ‘wining’ me now: Matthew 6:33
It was wine on the lees well refined
-That is the kind of feast, something you will live to remember for life.
Something whose impact will be on your life for life and in the name of Jesus, it shall be so for you.
That’s what wine is all about, it’s about long lasting impact.
He served me some wine 1982: the wine of prosperity. The thing is always intoxicating. How you feel is immaterial. Church Gist It is inside me, how you feel does not affect a wine who has taken wine. No, he is just rolling on. When I took that wine, I spurned like a cocoon, “Yea, I can never be poor.”
If you ask poverty, do you know him? He will say never. I don’t know him, don’t mention his name near me.
I conquered poverty before it came or before it planned to come. I knew I conquered it.
Whatever this Commission may have seen in the past 40 years is the wandering phase of the Commission.
We have enjoyed all these goodness in our wandering years, what then are we going to see in our Promised Land, the Lord said, “wait and see”
