ORDER OF SERVICE
FROM THE PULPIT
Your Day Has Just Begun
By Pastor Samuel OBAFAIYE
IFE can be very challenging. As young persons, we always thought that if we could have this or that, (money, position, fame, power, etc) life will be so easy. I have come to know that regardless of who or what you are, life comes with its peculiar challenges. As Christians, we are not exempted from challenges of life, what the bible encourages us to do is to demonstrate hope against every odd, and when God sees our disposition of faith, He helps us overcome each challenge that comes our way. Our perception of what we go through in life will determine what we make of life. What someone go through as take as a lesson to learn from, another will go through and see as a failure. Thomas Edisson was withdrawn from school at age 8 because his teacher taught he had a badly formed brain. Only to be privately tutored by his mother. He later became a great inventor in life. Electric light, motioned picture, sound recording were some of his inventions. When he was asked how he did not see himself as a failure for getting the electric light to stay on until the 200th time. He said he had only learnt 199th other ways of doing it differently. Life can be divided into three stages: past, present and future. All of them have their dictates on us. The Past does not want us to forget him; the Present tries to weigh us down; while the Future tries to scare us. Those who succeed only take cognisance of the lessons of yesterday, focus on today and courageously face tomorrow. We must not let the past to enslave our present. It's gone for good. Lessons might be learn for tomorrow. But essentially, the events of yesterday are over. RCCG EFA LEEDS HOUSE FELLOWSHIP CENTRES Both Peter and Judas had a bad record of a night, both betrayed Jesus.

FORTH IN THE NAME OH LORD I GO Forth in Thy Name, O Lord, I go, My daily labor to pursue; Thee, only Thee, resolved to know In all I think or speak or do. The task Thy wisdom hath assigned, O let me cheerfully fulfill; In all my works Thy presence find, And prove Thy good and perfect will. Preserve me from my calling’s snare, And hide my simple heart above, Above the thorns of choking care, The gilded baits of worldly love. Thee may I set at my right hand, Whose eyes mine inmost substance see, And labor on at Thy command, And offer all my works to Thee. Give me to bear Thy easy yoke, And every moment watch and pray, And still to things eternal look, And hasten to Thy glorious day. For Thee delightfully employ Whate’er Thy bounteous grace hath giv’n; And run my course with even joy, And closely walk with Thee to Heav’n.

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

Has God Been Ordering Your Step?
By Pastor Aderemi ADELUGBA
RETHREN, where you are located today really matters to God, and He is interested in where you will go from here. It is very possible to be a very brilliant individual. You may also have an excellent understanding of geography, or better still, you may be a high flyer in your chosen career, but if you fail to allow God to occupy the driver seat in your car and navigate you to the destination you desire, it could potentially become a bumpy drive. Psalm 37:23 – The steps of a good man WEEKLY ACTIVITIES are ordered by the Lord; and He delighteth in his way. SUNDAYS The theme for this month is Divine Direction. The Lord ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL: will direct your steps this month in Jesus name. You will 10:15 not go to the wrong destination in Jesus name. The CELEBRATION SERVICE: meaning of step is to set down one foot after another 11:00AM - 1:00PM in other to walk or move somewhere. There is HOUSE FELLOWSHIP: something about steps we take in life, and, the way BTW 5:30PM - 7:30pm we take those steps. When a man takes the wrong WEDNESDAYS step or turn in the wrong direction, it is almost certain that they will not arrive at their destination on time, or DIGGING DEEP: they may even end up in a ditch if God is not on their 6:30PM - 8:30PM side. So, the question God is asking you today - Has SATURDAYS God been ordering your steps in the journey of life? EVANGELISM (4th Saturday) Congratulations, if you have been allowing Him to 3:00PM take charge of your life. If otherwise, you need to be DRAMA MEETING: 5PM CHOIR MEETING;conscious of the following six points. 5:00PM
Allow God to navigate you – Ruth 1:1-6: There are SINGLES MEETING:times when we are stopped by the red lights, which the (3rd Sat) - 3PM MONTHLY ACTIVITIES law interprets as wait. However, some people would run the light in the name of wanting to get to their Celebration Service:destination on time, and in the process, they crash into 1st Sunday of the Month. other cars, and the whole journey becomes delayed, Anointing Service:and perhaps results in accident. The book of Ruth 1:1-6, Last Sunday of the Month. Holy Communion:is the account of a man called Elimelech. During the Last Wednesday of the Month. time when Judges ruled Israel, there was moral Women Fellowship:degradation, oppression and famine. Elimelech 3rd Saturday - 1:00pm responded to this season by relocating his family, he Men Fellowship:Bimontghly - 6:30pm left Bethlehem-Judah for Moab. My first exhortation to you this morning is - Did God NIGHT VIGIL ask you to move? If you say you have so much 1ST FRIDAY (10PM -1AM) knowledge of the city, and your geography is brilliant, wait until you take the wrong turning at a one way street to test your knowledge. Some of us have so much relied on our GPS for a long time that we don’t even make effort to find out what direction God is sending us. If you are not careful, your navigation system can fail and direct you to a place you do not want to go. For example, if the post-code went in wrong, or your GPS needs updating. But if you rely on God, you do not need to ask anyone for direction. Whenever you are SCAN CODE FOR DETAILS in any difficulty, who do you turn to? God wants you to start asking Him for directions and solution from today and, He will answer your petition. If you don’t allow Him to help you navigate your way, it can be disastrous. This man Elimelech lost everything including his own life and sons. Disaster will not strike you and your family in Jesus name.
