FROM THE PULPIT Geometric Progression Is Coming Your Way - By Pastor Samuel Obafaiye

I

N life, most increases are arithmetically, little by little, or step by step. So that if you happen to be experiencing major increases, people may start telling you to be careful. I pray that your increase will not just be arithmetically but geometrically in Jesus name. Geometry is defined as a progression of numbers with a constant ratio between each number and the one before, so that subsequent number is increased by a factor in the progression. E.g instead of 1,2,3,4,5 – arithmetic progression We now have 1,2,4,8,16 – geometric progression So that five paces in each category result in a great difference between the two sequence. The bible makes us to know that God called Abraham when he was childless. He was then blessed with Isaac. Isaac later gave birth to Jacob and Esau. Jacob begat 12 sons, who later became 12 tribes of Israel. Every ...less situation in your life be turned to ...full situation in Jesus name. Childless, penniless, jobless, spouseless, paperless, etc be changed to abundance in Jesus name. God lost Adam & Eve at the Garden of Eden, so the Almighty sent His only Son from heaven to save us. Jesus came to Earth and then raised 12 apostles. Then He had 72 disciples. After that 500 disciples. Now He has a great multitudes which no man could number (Rev. 7:9-10). 9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. May your seed increase without limit. May God make you an unlimited 'enteprise' in His hands . In Luke 5:1-7, we have the story of Peter how he was blessed by Jesus extremely rapidly. Someone that had laboured to catch a fish throughout the night and caught nothing. He then caught a great number of fishes! May God bless you with diverse kinds of increase. May what you have search for fruitlessly become so abundantly to you. May your blessings from God be too great to handle alone. In Exodus 2:1-10, the bible makes us to know that the Isealites were enjoying geometrical increase in Goshen. To the extent that it alarmed their host - the Egyptians. May your increase and expansion be alarming to your onlookers in Jesus name. May no one be able to curb your divine increase in Jesus name. The bible tells us that the winds of the earth are instrumental to restoration. Ezekiel 37:9-10 9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. Revelation 7:1 1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. PRAYERS In the name of Jesus, I prophesy to the four winds of the earth: thou east wind; west wind; north wind and south wind, bring all my previous losses from the four corners of the world back to me now. Excerpts of a sermon preached by Pastor Samuel Obafaiye on September 30th 2012

OCTOBER 2012 THEME: THE HAND OF GOD

T

HE hands are a very important part of the human body. They are used to perform several functions: touching; grasping; feeling; holding; manipulating; writing; working; caressing; warring; etc. The bible makes us to know that even though God is a Spirit, He created the human being in His own image and likeness. That therefore tells us that God has hands. The bible also tells us some of the things that the hands of God can do. There was a competition between Ahab the king of Israel who was racing on a chariot and an aged Elijah the prophet of God who was jogging on foot. At the end of the race from the desert to the gate of Jezreel (about 17 miles), it happened that Elijah came first! The bible however makes us to know that it was because the hand of God was upon Elijah (I Kgs. 18: 41-46).For astounding accomplishment to happen in the life of a fellow therefore, it is necessary that the ‘hand of God’ to be upon that fellow. This month of October, the hand of the Lord God Almighty will be upon us to take us ahead of ‘chariots’ of life; the Hand will put us before the ‘Ahabs’ – of life; and make us triumphant in Jesus name. By Pastor Samuel Obafaiye

THE RCCG (EVERLASTING FATHER’S ASSEMBLY) 2012 PROPHECY THEME: OUR YEAR OF ASTOUNDING ACCOMPLISHMENTS

A

STOUNDING is defined as bewildering or striking dumb with wonder; or so surprisingly impressive as to stun or overwhelm. While accomplishments could be defined as the act of carrying out or achieving; something achieved or successfully completed; gained skills or talent; attainment of social grace, style, and poise. After God ordered Elijah to anoint Elisha as his successor; Elisha left his lucrative mechanized farming and became a servant to Elijah. He would run errands for him and take care of his master. The time came when God was prepared to take Elijah away; Elisha’s contemporaries began to make mockery of him that he would soon be like them, but Elisha was determined not to remain as an ordinary son of a prophet; but as someone spectacular. So he demanded for the double portion of the anointing of God upon his master. The bible records that Elisha was able to fulfil the condition set by Elijah and so received the double portion of his master’s anointing! The sons of prophet that thought Elisha was already stranded at the other side of Jordan bowed before him and called him ‘Master’ after he parted the Jordan River and walked through it on dry ground! (2 Kings 2: 1-15). In the year 2012, the Spirit of God says He will make us to achieve feats that are astounding; gain talents and skills that are staggering; and enjoy attainments of social grace, style and poise that are startling! By Pastor Samuel Obafaiye

CONGREGATIONAL HYMN HIGHER GROUND I’m pressing on the upward way, New heights I’m gaining every day; Still praying as I’m onward bound, “Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.” Lord, lift me up and let me stand, By faith, on Heaven’s table land, A higher plane than I have found; Lord, plant my feet on higher ground. My heart has no desire to stay Where doubts arise and fears dismay; Though some may dwell where those abound, My prayer, my aim, is higher ground. I want to live above the world, Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled; For faith has caught the joyful sound, The song of saints on higher ground. I want to scale the utmost height And catch a gleam of glory bright; But still I’ll pray till Heav’n I’ve found, “Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

FROM THE PULPIT

You Will Recover All, Without Fail

Text: 1 Sam. 30: 1-20 - By Pastor (Mrs) Anthonia Obafaiye

B

RETHREN, if we cast our minds to 1 Sam. 15: 1-3 it is the same Amalekites that God instructed King Saul to utterly destroy because of what they did to his people (the children of Israel when they were making their way through the wilderness to the Promised Land). If we remember very well Saul disobeyed God, It was the same host of people that tormented David and his men in this Bible passage. So when David and his Mighty men came back and found out that the Amalekites had raided, struck and burnt Ziklag a place they had made home and carried away their families alive and everything the owed, they did the 1st thing that every other person would do in the flesh, they wept until they had no more strength to weep. There is someone here this morning and the Lord God Almighty says I should tell you that your days of weeping in the secret are over. The Bible says in Psa. 30:5 that weeping might endure in the night but joy comes in the morning time. The Almighty says I should announce to you that your joy has come in Jesus name. But Brethren I believe that after the weeping session that actually did not yield any results rather than that the mighty men of David began to conspire to stone him because their souls were bitterly grieved for their lost family members. Something came over David and he encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord his God, David must have remembered the goodness of the Lord from time past, how God had delivered him severally from the Lion, the Bear, Goliath of Gath and several other enemies including Saul who he was running from at that moment, the Bible says in Isa 59:19 that when the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him on our behalf. The Spirit of David the Man of War woke up, and he said to Abiatha the Priest Ahimelech’s son bring me the ephod, let me inquire of the Lord the solution to this problem, weeping is not the solution to this problem. Brethren whose counsel would we believe, who do we consult when we run into troubled waters. The Bible says the arm of flesh will always fail but those that put their trust in The Lord shall not be put to shame, and I declare that as you put your Trust in God you shall not be put to shame in Jesus name. Brethren there is something I want us to understand in this life no matter how popular or how much you might think that people love or like you do not put your trust or rely on them totally, because the Bible made us to understand that the mighty men of David loved him, they were loyal to him, they were ready to sacrifice their lives for their General, if we cast our minds to 2 Sam. 23: 15 – 17 these same men risked their lives and broke through the host of the Philistines and drew water from the wells of Bethlehem because their General desired water from that well because he was in exile running away from Saul but yet on the day that he needed their encouragement they wanted his head. There is a song that goes like this I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised, so shall I be saved by my enemies. The Bible recorded in verse 8 that the Lord answered him, Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all. And The Lord is saying to someone here today Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all, not some, not a few but all in Jesus name. Every wasted years, time, gift, talent, resource is being restored by The Lord today in Jesus name. The Lord is granting someone Divine Speed this morning to pursue, to overtake and to recover all without fail in Jesus name. Brethren there is something I want to point out to you in verse 11, the Bible recorded that the enemy made a mistake that caused David and his mighty men to have victory. The enemy abandoned a weak servant that was too weak to continue the journey with them and that was the servant that gave David and his men the vital information as to what way the enemy went and they were able to pursue. Brethren in this season of Restored years your enemies will make a mistake that will cause you to be elevated and promoted in Jesus name. Maybe someone did not hear me the first time. I prophesy that your enemies will make a mistake that will cause you to out-run, over-take and recover all you have lost or stolen from you in Jesus name. In Esther 2: 1- 17, Esther came into the scene because Queen Vashati made a mistake of her life (If she had known what was about to happen she would have honoured her husband). Esther was a slave in a foreign land and God granted her favour and she was graced to be the Queen of the land. In Gen. 50:20 Joseph’s brethren meant it for evil but The Lord turned it around for good for Joseph and he became the Prime Minister in a foreign land to preserve lives including his Brother’s lives.
