    May everyone leave here today with the voice of God going back home with him (Psalm 29:3-9). The voice of the Lord always commands testimonies.
    -May each one here leave this Service with a definite voice of the Lord in their direction.
    -As you step into your realm of financial fortune today, you will never be out of it forever.
    God’s Word works in season and out of season, no situation or circumstance is able to prevail against the triumph of the truth.
    -Today the truth of God’s Word will be delivered to you by His voice and will keep you on the path of sweatless for life. In the name of Jesus Christ and so shall it be. Thank You Jesus.
    GATEWAYS TO FINANCIAL FORTUNE has been our teaching series for our Sunday Service this month and it is ending today.
    He made His ways known unto Moses and then His acts unto the children of Israel (Psalm 103:7). Access to His ways is what puts believers in command of His acts. You know His ways, you are in command of His acts. When you know His ways and you go in those ways, you have committed God’s integrity to confirm His Word in your life.
    Simple illustration:
    “We have no wine”
    Response: Whatever He tells you to do, do it (John 2:5);
    He told them what to do. He is higher than what we know. His ways are higher than our ways;
    They did it, no struggle, it was turned to wine (John 2:9-10). No jacking, no vibration: it was turned to wine.
    You go His way, you are in command of His acts. You go His way and you are in command of His acts. When you know the ways of the Lord to anything, you are in command in that area.
    Psalm 103:7
    And the man Moses was very great (Exodus 11:3). You have His ways, He manifests His greatness in your life. He made His ways known unto Moses and His acts to the children of Israel. No prophet ever arose in Israel like unto Moses (Deuteronomy 34:10). He made His ways known unto him and He made greatness out of him.
    The world today is facing the worst economic crisis in history and from all prophetic indications, this is just the beginning. This is just the beginning, you better brace up, fasten your seat belt and engage the ways of God for your exemption.
    To the glory of His name, we will be 40 and no economic situation has affected us once in 40 years.
    No begging, no borrowing, no special contacts with any special group of people.
    He made His ways known unto Moses and His acts to the children of Israel (Psalm 103:7).
    -No matter how dark the darkness will be, going His way exempts you from the horrors of darkness.
    A day of darkness and of gloominess is ahead of the world (Joel 2:2). But darkness may cover the earth and gross darkness the people, but your engaging in the light of His Word, His glory only shall be seen upon you and gentiles will come to your light and their kings to the brightness of your rising (Isaiah 60:2-3). A time is come when skills and expertise will not sell. I am telling you this, it’s the platform for the reigning of the redeemed where only the covenant will count. You better take note of that.
    “Then shall you return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth Him not…” (Malachi 3:17-18; 4:1-2).
    Only covenant people will be exempted.
    All the proud, “forget about those guys, what are they talking about?”; all the big boys of New York, the big boys of Lagos, the big boys of Abuja, (will) lick dust.
    I am telling you prophetic scriptures and I am telling you as a Prophet. You better take cover in the Covenant as I have done for years, as this Commission is doing forever.
    God relates with individuals as He relates to Nations and to a people. Just come on key with the terms of the Covenant and you have committed God to confirm His Word in your life.
    He said, “whether it be done for a Nation or for an individual only”, so His agenda covers corporate organizations, institutions, nations (Job 34:29).
    You know that the world is under stress but why are people here still smiling? Exemption, covenant exemption.
    When you get angry, it doesn’t change it. You get grieved, it doesn’t change it. Covenant exemption!
    That is why this is not a cosmetic teaching, it’s packaged to exempt you from the horrors ahead of this generation. He said, “all these are the beginning of sorrow, before Christ comes” (Matthew 24:8).
    They shall begin to say, “come, let’s go to the house of the Lord oooo. Can’t you see it working for them. Come, see that man, see that woman, see that girl! What?” (Micah 4:2).
    34-year old: MD/ COO of an international quoted company. One thousand percent above his former pay and now a shareholder in that company, a co-owner, that is the meaning.
    -God is about to change your story.
    Thank You Jesus.
    That is not to scare you, it is to stir your spirit to engage with your covenant keeping Father with utmost delight. He doesn’t need you and me for anything, we need Him for everything!
    The earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof, the world and all that dwell therein (Psalm 24:1, Psalm 50:12).
    If I were hungry, I won’t ask you (Psalm 50:10).
    The silver is mine (Haggai 2:8). ‘The’ silver is mine, you may have some, but ‘The’ silver is mine and ‘The’ gold is mine saith the Lord.
    -I see globally rated financial giants rise in this place.
    -I see them rise in their numbers!
    But let them shout for joy that favour His righteous cause, let them say continually, let the Lord be magnified which taketh pleasure in the prosperity of his servants (Psalm 35:27).
    -That is your way there. How much pleasure do you take in His righteous cause will determine your placement in this move?
    How much pleasure do you have in the pursuit of His righteous cause: the cause of the gospel, the cause of the wellbeing of the needy? How much pleasure do you take in it?
    For my house through prosperity of my people shall be spread abroad (Zechariah 1:17).
    There is a man here, described in the passage we read at the welcome (call to worship), Psalm 112. This man is said to be a man that fears God and delights in himself greatly in His commandments, he is not under pressure. He is not doing it as a burden.
    Psalm 112:1-9
    “Wealth and riches shall be in his house and his righteousness endures forever” – he won’t play pranks. No changing books, no cutting corners, no crookedness, no perverseness. For the upright, there arises light in darkness. He is gracious and lendeth.
    “He shall guide his affairs with discretion” – He has understanding of God’s ways and God’s house.
    How? He understands Kingdom protocols. He understands Kingdom priorities.
    “He has dispersed…”- You better understand what that man is all about.
    “The wicked shall see it…” – Let’s kill him. When God blesses you, no gang up of hell can ‘un-bless’ you. I mean you should see that from our Church platform. You know how many people are angry and how many people have gone to hell for being angry without our knowledge, because we might beg Him not to do it.
    Anyone who gets angry with you when God blesses you, He curses them, on His own without consulting you. He curses them. Sir, it doesn’t matter who they are.
    “Whosoever curses you, I will curse. I will bless them that bless thee and whosoever curses you when I bless you, I will curse him” (Genesis 12:3).
    When a Prophet curses you, you can go to God to help you. When God curses you, who do you go to?
    When God curses a man, who does he go to?
    -You won’t come under His curse forever.
    Don’t be grieved when God is blessing your neighbour. Don’t be upset when your neighbour’s business is blossoming. Don’t read negative meanings to it.
    “I was the one who brought him to Church” – and so what?
    Don’t you know preachers who preach what they don’t benefit from?
    Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, whether he is a Pastor, a Founder, an Archbishop, a Prelate and doeth them is a wise man (Matthew 7:24).
    Don’t get grieved. People who get grieved with success never taste it. You get grieved with prosperity, you will never taste it Sir.
    Enjoy God’s grace on the life of others and find out what they are doing, that you are not doing and plug yourself into it.
    Well, my mentor will be here next Sunday, Dr Copeland. Praise God. He is a blessed man and I’m a blessed protégé. He is a blessed man and I tap into his blessing without negative reasonings. Neat man, full of integrity, working only by scriptures, engaging only in the covenant. These things are there for you to see.
    I’ve not added one thing to Jesus. I said humourously, you can ask all these great people that know you, “How do you know them?”
    I said: Ask them, how did they know me? Ask them Sir.
    I got some humbling testimonies during this week. People I never knew, knowing anything about what we are doing. Great leaders.
    Ask them how they knew me. Nobody has ever introduced me to one person in my life, “That come, let me introduce you to Mr President or ex-President”. I know the Head of all of them, I serve in His room, His name, Jesus, the King of kings and the Lord of lords
    -People will start looking for you.
    This Nigerian syndrome, ‘that who you know is what matters’, is a lie. It’s a lie of the devil. The Lord said to me 1987, “don’t seek to be known, seek to know and the world will soon start seeking to know you.” I heard it directly.
    Those who know their God, you don’t need to know no Jack or Harry, they shall be strong and they shall do exploits (Daniel 11:32).
    -That is you.
    Please settle down with God, He will settle you in all areas of your life. Nobody can settle you like God. Nobody, no system can settle you like God. Settle with God and He will settle you in all areas of your life. Settle with God.
    We had a testimony those days in Kaduna: one of our precious people, they had waited for a child for quite many years. I can’t remember anymore whether 8 or more and she said, “finally, I settled with God”; as she settled, God settled her.
    You better settle with God.
    Junketing around with people, “yes. Just to say hello to you sir”, won’t help you. “If God does not help you, where will I help you from”, that’s what the king said (2 Kings 6:27). If God does not help you, where will I help you from? The king himself was crying. We are in the days where kings are crying. If you don’t know God who has the answer to those questions, you are going nowhere.
    Now, let me lay this foundation: John was writing, “beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth” (3 John 1:2). So spirituality is the foundation of Kingdom prosperity.
    You will prosper only to the level of spiritual prosperity. God doesn’t want you destroyed, He doesn’t want me destroyed. So the level of blessing that will destroy you, He won’t put it on your life. He won’t. We need to develop spiritual capacity by engaging a quality walk with God.
    “I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers”– and the Holy Ghost is the One speaking, anytime you read the scriptures.
    You close in a Service like this and you start reading carnal meanings to the teachings, you are just gone. Gone! This is what is written, it is not anybody’s contribution.
    It is the Holy Ghost saying, “this is the way to go. You want to prosper? I cannot prosper you beyond your spiritual prosperity, so it does not destroy you.”
    “To be spiritually minded is life and peace; but to be carnally minded is death” – Romans 8:6
    That blessed man of Psalm 112, you could see his spiritual base: strong. He fears the Lord, he delights greatly in His commandments. It will impact on his children, on his children’ children, in their generations and wealth and riches shall be in his house and it will be with integrity. In the midst of darkness, there will arise light for him. He is gracious and he lendeth. He will guide his affairs with discretion (Psalm 112: 1-5).
    There is a spiritual base required to fulfil God’s agenda of prosperity in your life.
    It’s not banking: give CMFB 10 Naira, how much are you giving me as interest?
    Why must we be spiritual?
    Quickly, let me say this:
    Every change of level in the school of prosperity demands access to the voice of God. The voice of God.
    Now watch, Abraham: and the Lord said to Abraham (Genesis 12). God said to Abraham in Genesis chapter 17 and God was answering Abraham directly (Genesis) chapter 18, in that intercession. (Genesis) chapter 22, the Lord said to Abraham.
    Your change of level demands access to the voice of God but a natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God because they are foolishness to him, neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned (1 Corinthians 2:14).
    You need to be spiritual to access the voice of God!!
    If we live in the spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit (Galatians 5:25).
    Let everyone that has ears, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches (Revelation 2:7).
    God speaks to us by His Spirit and you have to tune in to the spirit, to access it. We have to be spiritual.
    See the level of prosperity that came to us here as a people and it was triggered by a voice, “This is the place.”
    Triggered by voice, “This is the place.”
    One day, God said to me, “give me that car.” Joy welled up in my heart, you own me, what nonsense car! And I heard Him swear on my way home, “my son David, you just passed the test. Even if you don’t want to be rich, it is too late.”
    One time, I gave 23 cars out! One time, 23 cars.
    By a voice!!
    That’s why we need to be spiritual. That voice can come through at any time. You can’t afford to be careless or you will miss your way. You can’t.
    There is no way we will plan or think of buying a plane when he bought one. You bring it in the agenda and you are close to me, I will hit you, because, “how dare you think of it?”
    But “It is time to get the aircraft” and I understood that as “I have bought it, go and take the delivery”, because we know we can’t buy it. If you throw us up and down, we can’t buy it.
    -Your change of level in the school of prosperity demands spirituality. The only way to access the voice of God that can make demand on you for your change of level.
    “Take your son, your only son Isaac” – and what was He doing? He was bringing him to a point of sworn blessing.
    Now I know that you fear Me and by Myself have I sworn (Genesis 22:16).
    -Many will come under that sworn blessing platform this year
    God will speak to you, very simple thing. It will turn everything around. Everything around!
    Our Church exploded by a voice, “As for thee also, all those voices you are hearing, they are not from me. Thou shall stand here by Me” and then eruption: 1994 to 1999, from 3,000 plus to 50,000 plus. By a voice.
    It impacts on the work you are doing, it impacts on everything. You need to be spiritual. He wants to bless the works of your hand, you need to know what next He wants you to do, by a voice.
    There is no Lagos in the Bible, “so arise, get down to Lagos” is not in the Bible.
    “This is the place” – it is not in the Bible
    You have to be able to hear, to access your next level of blessing. We have to be spiritual, this is not a game.
    He told Abraham, “walk with Me and watch how I will decorate your life” (Genesis 17:1-2)
    Grace to retain and remain spiritually minded at all times, to pick the signals from Heaven on your next level of blessing from God, receive it right now in the name of Jesus.
