FROM THE PULPIT
Commitment: Your Access To A New Dawn By Rev Alex FARANPOJO CTS 14: 17: “And yet He left not Himself without witness, in that he did good and gave you from Heaven rains and fruitful seasons, filling your hearts with food and gladness.” There is something called fruitful season and you will enter it this year in Jesus name Somebody's post code and bank statement are changing forever, three people will meet their husbands this year in Jesus name. Some people would also hear more good news from home; some people will be discharged from hospital, somebody’s grace will come back in Jesus name. Utterances are powerful; make use of it especially when based on the word of God. Hebrews 10: 35-39: “Cast not away therefore your confidence which hath great recompense of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, having done the will of God, ye may receive the promise. For yet a very little while, He that cometh shall come and shall not tarry. But my righteousness one shall live by faith: And if he shrinks back my soul hath no pleasure in him. But we are not of them that shrink back unto perdition; but of them that have faith unto the saving of the soul.” Luke 9: 62: “...And Jesus said no man having put his hand to the plow and looking back is fit for the kingdom of God.” The Bible speaks about several things that show that God is interested in our lives, It also explains that God is our Source and our Sustenance; this is a statement of truth. There are moments in life when we feel our Source is not our sustenance and this happens when a believer lacks direction. There is nothing as frustrating as when a believer lacks direction. God wants us operational and functional towards our destiny but what makes a believer be in that position is when he/she is living under Divine covenant? It is necessary that we know that our blessings are connected to Father Abraham. From the book of Genesis which was written by God himself, note that no one was there when God created the heavens and the earth but God narrated the Book to Moses. You will be amazed that God’s relationship with us is by covenant. God’s covenant connects us to Him. God is committed to His promises but wants your commitment for fulfilment of these promises. God connected Jesus Christ to David and to Abraham RCCG EFA LEEDS HOUSE FELLOWSHIP CENTRES because of covenant, In Psalm 89:34 “My covenant will I not break; nor alter the Ls1, LS2, LS7 & LS8 thing that is gone out of my lips.” God is a covenant Flat 147, 20-20 House, keeping God.

RCCG EFA LEEDS FEBRUARY THEME - SUPERNATURAL DAYBREAK
AYBREAK is a combination of two words: Day and Break. Day could be defined as a period of 24 hours usually beginning and ending with midnight; it could be a part of the 24 hours when it is light (sunrise and sunset); or it could be the part of the 24 hours period when somebody is working or active. Break on the other hand could be defined as separating something into pieces suddenly or violently. Supernatural daybreak will be a spiritual process whereby the active or working part of a body just began, emerged or appeared, in such that the whole essence of that body is transformed. Jacob was born to be very great in life, he however liked to cheat on people, something he began to demonstrate from the womb. God however decided to have mercy on him. All the years he had lived with his parents and uncle, within those years are thousands of nights and daybreaks. One daybreak however stood out for Jacob, it was a Supernatural one. In Gen. 32:22-29, Jacob was going back to Canaan - the Promised Land, but he had great fear and apprehension that his brother will do him a great harm. God however presented him with an opportunity from Heaven for a 'destiny makeover' on the way. At a daybreak, he had a sudden transformation. His name was changed from Jacob to Israel. From 'Surplanter' to 'God rules' or 'Prince of God'! In this month of February, God will grant us Supernatural Daybreak. Our 'night' will change to 'day'. The essential working or active part of us will be ignited suddenly. God will effect with us a 'destiny makeover'. As we journey in this 2014, our name will be changed from 'little achievers' to 'higher achievers' in Jesus name. Pastor Samuel Obafaiye
THE RCCG (EVERLASTING FATHER’S ASSEMBLY) 2014 PROPHECY. THEME: OUR YEAR OF NEW BEGINNING Exodus 12:2
s 2013 was running to an end. I began to ask God what He will do for us in the year 2014. Few weeks ago, God impressed it on my heart that He is making us to enter into an era of New Beginnings. He said, He will fulfil our time in the year 2014. Our time will be 8 years in 2014, 8 been a number of new beginning. God said, ‘Though I have taken you to a time of completion at 7 years, yet I’m ready to start work on you afresh’. In Gen. 1:1-4, prior to the beginning, God made the heaven and the earth. God reside in heaven, but the earth was without form and void, and also dark. At a later stage, God decided He wanted to make a new beginning with the earth and He began with light and other things, until He could confirm that the earth was equally good. God recently told me that what He intends for Everlasting Father’s Assembly to become is not yet revealed.’I am about to begin anew with you’, He said. ‘I will take you back to Genesis i.e Creation and re-make you’. He said, He will make us into a more impressive form, shape and brilliance.’I will also introduce a new kind of light into you to make your difference from before very obvious’. He said. Do you know that Manufacturers remake their products mainly for two reasons? (1) They identified a fault or error in the system after usage. (2) They just desire to make something nicer; more current or a newer model. God said regarding Everlasting Father’s Assembly, He will repair every faults within our system in 2014. He has also desire to make us into something more glorious. When we started in 2006, we were like something without form and shape, it looks like few people joking. Thank God for then and glory be to God for now. Today, God says, ‘I will start you again in your 8th year’. He said, He will take us back to the things we enjoyed in our first start and then make us to experience even more. God then gave me our anchor scripture as: Exodus 12:2 -This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. The daylight of 1st January shall be the beginning of months and years to us; it shall also be the first month of 2014. Everything that has happened to us before now are just occurrences before our real beginning. He said your enjoyment up till now is just like a test drive. You will now begin to move about confidently and comfortably. Hear again the promise from God to us for 2014. Revelation 21:5-6 -And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. By Pastor Samuel Obafaiye

The Eyes of The Lord Will Go With You By Pastor Aderemi ADELUGBA Psalm 32:8-9 - I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

RETHREN the message for you today is that the eyes of the Lord will continually go with you in your journey in Jesus name. One of the assurances God gave WEEKLY ACTIVITIES us is that, He will not let our foot slip, and, that, we SUNDAYS would not be hurt, when we go through the valley of the shadow of death.

I remember having to stay in 3 DIGGING DEEP: different countries within a very short period of time, 6:30PM - 8:30PM and thought to myself how God has helped me in SATURDAYS crossing the borders of those countries.

He heard the cry of Jabez, and restored his life to the one of fulfilment. The story of Jabez was so pathetic that He cried out one day, and asked that the Lord would please help him. His mother named Him sorrow, but when he encountered God, everyone who had rejected and hated him, looked for him to bless his life. Before Jabez’s encounter with the Lord, he dashed his foot in every journey he took. He never got the right job, and was always ending up with the wrong crowd. But when he turned unto the destiny changer, the story of his life changed forever. The Lord will erase your past mistakes and fault, and the story of your life will change for the better in Jesus name. The eyes of the Lord stands for appearance: When you WATCH OUR CHANNEL begin to struggle over issues, the Lord will make His eyes and light to come upon that issue. He has done this in many ways; He appeared for the Hebrew boys in the book Daniel 3. I pray that the Lord will help and show up for you wherever you need Him in Jesus name.
