HOSTING THE DIVINE PRESENCE; THESE ARE THE REASONS WHY YOU WON’T CARRY THE FIRE OF GOD AND HOST HIS PRESENCE BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

HOSTING THE DIVINE PRESENCE; THESE ARE THE REASONS WHY YOU WON’T CARRY THE FIRE OF GOD AND HOST HIS PRESENCE BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

I have met quite a number of young believers in meetings and what I experience around them never ceases to amaze me. These experiences left me with answers why many young folks would never carry the fire of God despite their activities and “passion” for God.

Meeting some of them for the first time, before discussing in two statements, I hear them bring tell me; Last week, I was at Koinonia in Zaria with Apostle Selman, I will be at Convergence this weekend with Apostle Arome Osayi and next week, I will be at “Fire In My Bones” with Pastor Daniel Olawande, next month, I will be at Face to Face with Apostle Tosin Adegoke.

Don’t get me wrong sir, I’m not saying attending meetings is outrightly wrong. I attend some of these meetings too consistently but I would be addressing some strange motives on this caption

I get to listen some folks arguing at meeting and some come to ask me, who is more anointed among Apostle Johnson Suleiman, Pastor Paul Enenche and Pastor David Ibiyeomen. So painful to hear this among folks. Please, how did we get here? Who did this to us?

I was conversing with a folk online who told me he felt led to follow me and he started telling without asking him his spiritual port folio. He said he has over 500 messages of Apostle Selman, over 300 messages of Apostle Arome Osayi. When I heard that, I told him; “you don’t need to follow me, go and do the instructions in the messages. I’m surprised that your spiritual life still lacks evidence all this while”.

I’m not among those men that are looking people to follow them as a proof for spiritual growth, I’m among the gang that are looking for more pathways of the spirit to follow and looking desperately for more signs to follow our lives as we also look for more prices to pay.

I was chanting with a folk of recent and he started telling me about great men of God that have laid hands on him that he is still reaching out to more hands to be laid on him. I laughed, as I wondered how he has seen laying on of hands as a short cut to spiritual growth.

Thank God for the hands that have been laid upon me but my desire and concern is laying hold of more dimensions of God personally in my closet.

Listen to me, if there is any shortcut to spiritual growth then it must be a broad way to spiritual retrogradation if not properly approached. I don’t think any believer needs a prophet to know that prayer, fasting and study of the word has no substitute in our quest to host the presence of God.

Those great men of God with proven track records of kingdom exploits that you are running after their ministrations touching their cars or clothes for transference of the anointing, ask them if that was the method they used to attain the dimension they are operating from?

Even if you see them transfer the anointing with their handkerchiefs, why can those materials carry the anointing while your own head is still empty after many hands have been laid on it?

A preacher’s popularity can’t ignite the fire of God to you, go to the secret place. Visiting a man of God will not confer the power of God he carries on you until you visit where he visited or visits momentarily, the place of prayer.

Elisha saw beyond carrying the bag of Elijah and calling Elijah his father in the Lord. He built a capacity in hunger and thirst to carry double portion of the anointing. God told Elijah to transfer his anointing to three people due to the magnitude; Hazael, Jehu and Elisha.

Three people were qualified to substitute for Elijah’s departure. Meaning they were qualified to get one third of the anointing each but Elisha’s thirst and capacity made him to get double portion of the anointing not the following alone.

I hear folks say, if so so man of God is not coming to that conference, I won’t attend. Hmmm, this mentality of knowing the guest minister coming for a meeting before attending shows that you are not really hungry for God. If a man is really hungry, he does not care about who serves him or the kind of restaurant to visit.

What a saga, many are missing in their secret place while they are always available in different public meetings, that’s why their spiritual lives have no evidence of tangible results and track records of consistency.

Some are trying to dodge spiritual responsibilities and commitments by keeping relationship with a man of God and attending “big” conferences. Listen to me; “kolewark”. Let your motive for attending meetings be out of the capacity you have developed in the secret place, that’s is how you can sustain, utilize and effectively maximize what you receive from a meeting or relationship.

I have tried to engage some of these folks who claimed to be consistent in attending quite a number of different meetings, have volumes of messages and different hands laid on them. When I tried praying with them, in less than 30 minutes they yawn in weariness and I wonder how all the claimed spiritual pedigrees can’t build their prayer life over time.

Listen to me, there are some folks who are in the secret without seeing their faces regularly in public meeting but are desperately burning for God. Very soon, the line of demarcation would be drawn between those that are really seeking God and those that have been carried away by activities. Only time would tell, the results would soon speak.

These folks may not attend many public meetings, they may not have all the tapes, they may not read all the books, they may not have several hands laid on them, their spiritual father and mentor may not be popular, they may not have the contact of “big” man of God or may not be privileged to snap pictures with anyone of them but their consistency and fervency over time would soon speak.

Don’t be intimated if you are in that category, only make your prayers in the secret place more intensed and see what follows you later. Hear me, using a popular man of God as your profile picture can be a way of honoring them but that’s not what adds to your own spiritual profile.

I’m looking for a generation that would focus on the dimensions the men of God ministered and be provoked to pray than the man of God. I’m looking for men that would run into the bush or their prayer closet after a minister’s ministration rather than running after the minister. Sir, impartation is good but consistency and commitment to spiritual growth is the ultimate.

Enough of young people who love traveling with men of God than travailing with them. We miss it when we prefer to chat with ministers rather than chant with them. We are now taking most of our time with our mentors and spiritual fathers playing with them instead of praying with them. We are becoming familiar with them because we spend more time organizing meeting with them rather than agonizing in prayers for what we desire in them.

Many words, encounters and spiritual realities have passed you by because you despise the preacher for not being popular or the meeting for not being the “big” conference you desire.

Please, take heed to these. You can change this false mentality. You can carry this fire and host his presence if you engage the right approach.

PS; I will be at the meeting, Face to Face with God, Ado Ekiti, a 3 days Marathon prayer and fasting encounter on the 20th to 22nd of July as we consider “How To Host The Divine Presence”, powered by Holistic Healing Crusaders. I believe we would be able to expound on this caption more.

TO THE MAN WHO GATHERED US TOGETHER AND WE SAW GOD FACE TO FACE BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

TO THE MAN WHO GATHERED US TOGETHER AND WE SAW GOD FACE TO FACE BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

We have the understanding that the Holy Spirit is the factor that made it possible for all the young men and women of like passion across the nation to gather in one place to behold God face to face in a time like this but you are the one who yielded to the need and made all things available for the reality of this.

I remember back then as corp members, when others were saving their allowances to start up businesses, meet their personal demands and other things, you were always more concerned with giving all your financial resources to ensure that quarterly people come together in fasting and prayers to draw from the wealth of heaven and set ablaze. 

You remained faithful to this over the years, you have spent and been spent to this. You have created a platform for the rise of giants, a portal for ascendancy in the spirit, a fiery furnace to be set ablaze and a supernatural workshop for all.

Through you and your call, many have reunited as kingdom and covenant brothers, many discovered their callings, found their bearings for life, became responsible to spiritual growth, got launching pads for their ministries and we are still counting much more.

You laboured for all in the secret so that many could partake in the open. You are faithful and selfless with no reward from any man in view. Men with such a heart like yours remain a scarce commodity in our days.

I’m privileged to be connected to you. Please, can someone join me to appreciate and celebrate this great healing Apostle, Tosin ADEGOKE. We are connected for life.

ARMIES ARE RISING, PORTALS ARE OPENED BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

ARMIES ARE RISING, PORTALS ARE OPENED BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

“Though we may have the tongue and wisdom of men and of angels, the power lies in the continuous anointing of the spirit”.

The anointing is an asset to a believer, hence the price must be paid to acquire it enough for our spiritual conquest. We must soak and wax stronger in it every time and everywhere.

There is demand on being a believer. We have been discharged and acquainted from darkness then sentenced to a life of the supernatural.

We are not called for an event, we are called for a lifestyle. Tell our generation, we are coming. Dictating the pace of events in this season is what we are called to do. Our order is the order of manifestation.

We are not looking for who we are, we are looking within. There is a portal in our secret place where we log in to ascend into the deep things of the ancient. We are drinking from the well of life and our lives is becoming a living spring others can drink from.

We are not looking for comfort because our lifestyle is a legacy to this generation. We know it won’t be convenient but we would remain consistent in paying the price; in being faithful to the process, perils and demands.

We know the pains at the moment can’t be compared with the gains ahead of us. We are discontented with mundane and mediocrity is an insult to our personality.

Armies are rising, nations are about to feel the heat beyond the intensity of what they are experiencing now.

FIRE IN MY BONES

FIRE IN MY BONES


“EVERY MAN CALLED OF GOD TO IMPACT AND AFFECT HIS GENERATION CARRIED AN INNER FIRE IN HIS BOSOM. IT IS THIS FIRE THAT BURNED THROUGH HIS VEINS, WHICH MADE HIM RESTLESS UNTIL GOD’S KINGDOM WAS ESTABLISHED IN HIS OWN DAYS.




THAT SAME FIRE THAT MAKES MEN UNCOMFORTABLE UNTIL THEY SAW THE KINGDOM OF GOD ESTABLISHED IN THEIR GENERATION IS ABOUT TO BE IGNITED IN THE LIVES OF MANY THAT ARE HUNGRY AND DESPERATE FOR GOD”.

THE STORY: FROM GRASS TO GRACE BY IYKE ORIAKU


THE STORY: FROM GRASS TO GRACE BY IYKE ORIAKU
IT IS NOW THAT I AM BEGINNING TO MISS MY LATE FATHER …


HE SAW ME CARRYING INDIAN HEMP… HE SAW ME CARRYING GUNS… HE SAW ME CARRYING CHARMS AND ALCOHOL AND WOMEN… BUT HE DID NOT LIVE TO SEE ME CARRYING THE POWER OF GOD… WHY WILL I NOT CRY?
I have lost count how many times the police apprehended him because of me…

He was embarrassed in the neighbourhoods severally…

Sometimes, when he goes out to preach to people, they will insult him, and tell him: “Mr man, go and preach to your last born first before preaching to us…” and In that shame, he will come back…

I was known in all the gangs around the neighbourhood…

And popular among police cells in the area…

Suspended in some schools and expelled in others…

Almost every new academic section, my father will be taking me from one new school to the other, to beg them to re admit me… And sometimes, they will embarras him out of their offices, abusing him to go home and train his child very well…

Sometimes, on our way back, he will be shedding tears…

In his usual way, he will tell me: “Ikedi, are you enjoying how they are embarrassing me? How many more times will they keep insult me because of you before you change?” Tears will be rolling down his cheeks… (I am in tears here)

But then, those tears he used to shed never moved me… I was heading to a certain doom, yet, I thought anybody was stopping me from living my life…


All because ‘he hath shut their eyes that they cannot see and their hearts that they cannot under’… (Isaiah 44:16)

Among all my siblings in Nigeria, I was the only one who was not around his bed the day he was dying… I was in a ‘far country’, living a riotous life…

He called the names of 9 of my elder siblings, held their hands and blessed them… waiting for me to come, so that he will bless me… But I didn’t show up…

Before he died, he told those my siblings who were around this concerning me:

“Satan is using him now, but very soon, God will take over from Satan… And the whole world will see what God will use him to do in his generation… As his name goes Ikedichi, meaning: (God is powerful) the world will see that God has power…”

It was not long, on that Sunday morning, while singing a song, he died…
Many years after, I am no more carrying guns….

Many years after, I am no more carrying women…

I am no more carrying Indian Hemp and charms…

Now, that I am carrying Bible, where is my father?

When he was alive, parents used to warn their children not get close to me, so that I don’t teach them bad things … But now that he has died, parents are now bringing their children to me, to catch the Fire of God…

When he was alive, I was heading to hell and everybody knew it… But now that he has died, hell is losing occupants because of me…

This same hands that carried demonic sacrifices for Satan is now carrying the Power of God… The same hands that shot guns is now carrying God’s end time Fire… These hands have healed sicknesses… HIV… MADNESS… and all manner of diseases have died by these hands…

Men and women, boys and girls have shock these hands, and to the glory of God, they caught the Fire and went back and set their families and communities and campuses on Fire…

But where is my father now to see what God is doing with his last born…
Where is he to see that his last words on his dying bed concerning me are playing out now…

I am in tears here!

I saw the spirt of deaths walk pass me to kill others…

I saw bullets fired at me, miss me to hit others…

I escaped Graves dug to bury me alive, and someone else was thrown on and was buried alive…

Till today, I am surprised why I survived things many of my friends could not survive…

Friends, please, help me tell those who are saying that we are not doing well, that they don’t understand where we are coming from…

They say that God is not helping us… Because we have not rented halls and started using police excorts everywhere…

They say that if God is with us, why have we not started controlling crowd?

Why are we still struggling in missionary field…

Please, help me tell them, that God has helped us…

Don’t judge a man by where he is, Judge him by where he is coming from…

If you have arrived, congratulations sir…

But pray for us… And don’t laugh at us yet…

This is not the end of our story yet…

We did not enter ministry because of glamour…

Nobody promised us money or fame before we entered this work…

If you know where God brought us out from, you will know that we have gone too far from where we were…

The wealth will come… But whether they come now or later, we have already sold out… And the only option we have is forward ever…

We may not have preached in CNN, but we have preached in villages..

We may not have preached in the biggest churches in town, but we have being privileged to preach in markets squares…

We may not have started hanging out with the most known men and women in our time… But, for now, we are still trusting God that all these unknown men and women all around us now, will be known in no long time…

Sometimes, on phone, my mum will be shedding tears of joy… When she sees what God is making of to me today, she will be crying, saying: “I wish your father is alive now to see what God is doing through you…”

It breaks my heart too… But I know that he has joined the cloud of witnesses in Hebrew 12 verse 1,… And I know he is seeing everything am doing now…

I know he is reading all my Facebook posts…

I know he sees me while I minister in few churches where I am invited…

I know he is proud seeing me in missions field with poor and rejected boys and girls who have left voodoo to follow Jesus…

I know my late father is happy that I have dropped guns and o am now carrying the Power of God…
Sometimes, he will call Apostle Peter, and tell him:….” … That’s my boy healing the sick there… ” Haleluya!
Friends, we are on a revenge mission… To fight the program of hell over our generation…

To bring down altars… And prepare a breed that woll not merchandise the Power of God…
We have a mandate to raise men and women that will spread this revival Fire to the ends of the earth…

We cannot be begging for pulpits when God wants to make us pulpits…

We cannot join the bandwagon when many are zealously going to hell from their churches, because no one is telling them the truth. ..

Babylon cannot win this war in our time…

No… Not now that we are here sir…
Where was Babylon during the days of Evans Roberts?

Where was Jezebel during the time of William Seymore?

Where were they when John Hyde, Charles Wesley, Charles Finney, etc were here?

Why did all the powers in hell not stop the revival that hit Wales?

Why didn’t all the witches and wizards abort the revival that broke out on Azusa Street, which lasted for over 500 years?

And who is telling you that revival is impossible in our cities in Africa?

Where are all the who have not lost hope for a move of God in our time?

Where are all those who still have wet eyes, over the lies and forgeries and shame that has become the lot of the church in our time?

Where are all those who still believe that God will not leave us this way?

Where are those Who wants revival to hit their communities, in a way men have never seen before?

Where are those who are ready to pay the price?

Friends, tt is time to cry with a loud voice…

“Oh that Wouldest rent the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at the Presence… “(Isaiah 64:1).
If these mortal men stopped hell from encroaching into their generation, why won’t we?

If Satan suffered injuries and set backs in their time, why should we be here and be watching him hijacking the Fire in our hands?

Friends, there are many prophecies hanging on our heads that must not waste…

I know that Some people are somewhere now, thinking that there will never be an army again that will rise up to pay the commensurate price for a mighty outbreak of revival in our time …

We owe the unborn generation one thing… NOT to carry the prophecies of a mighty revival in our time to the grave…
If God could use Jonathan Edwards…

If He could use Smith Wigglesworth,…

If he could use David Brainard, John Sung, John Knox, why will He not use us in our time?

We must pray sir…

To frustrate all the demons hijacking God’s plan over our communities…

That is why Paul told Timothy:” This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before thee, that thou by them mightest WAR A GOOD WARFARE ” (Timothy 1:18)
We cannot keep quiet …

How can men and women submit under us and still be bowing to native doctors? …

They can not be paying their tithes to us and still be seeing calamities every month…

Some of us have made a vow that no man will be close to us that will make hell…

No city that will have us in it that will not see a mighty revival…

In our time, Lord, pythons and cobras cannot triumph…

The evil trees that withered during the days of our fathers cannot resurrect in our days…

Men and women cannot come near us and not make news on the earth…

Wicked uncles in the village who did not go to school will not be controlling what we do in the city with our certificates…

We are ashamed of celebrating old and moribund flames…

Shadows have robbed us of More of You, Lord..

Now, we are out to grab the Substance!

And we are determined not to stop until our earths begins to yield it’s increase…

Friends, the time to joke is over…

If we must be relevant in our time, it’s time to go extra miles…

It is the extra miles that adds value on men…

Already, God is igniting the revival Fire here and there

And very soon, it will encompass all the cornubations and boulevards… Wherever men and women are Living and dying…
Where are all the men who are not ashamed to be laughed at?

Where are all those who are no more comfortable celebrating local victories?

Where all those who are hungry to break into new territories?

Where are those who are ready to pray for nothing less than for an unusual move of God’s Power in our communities?

Where are those who wants to raise the altar of revival in their hearts?

Man of God, the truth is that many men are women are somewhere now crying to God… Not for money or to be posted to bigger churches…

But for More of God…
And In the next few months, when they will begin to roar… Out from their hiding places …

And I tell you with all boldness sir… Kingdoms and thrones will hear their voices and bow…

That is the circle I want to belong now… If you know where to find men of such soul calibre, please, take me there…

Let us go and pray!
