You Will Prevail In Life By Pastor Samuel OBAFAIYE
REVAIL means to prove more powerful or superior, win, win out, win through, be victorious, be the victor, triumph, gain the victory, carry the day, finish first, come on top, succeed, conquer, and overcome. Whenever soldiers go to war, there is usually an allowance for casualty. The percentage of which should be very minimal. The commanding officer only gets to be queried of faced disciplinary action if his troop suffers a certain percentage of casualties above the norm. We have been enlisted into the Army of God. Jesus is our commander. He has never suffered loss. Except those who stray from Him. John 17:12 While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. You will never sustain casualty in Jesus name. In II Chro. 20:1-30, the bible says that three nations came to war against Judah under Jehoshaphat. They were outnumbered greatly. Jehoshaphat was disturbed. He ran to God for help. God told him to set his people against the nations as if to fight, but they will not need to engage the enemy, as God Himself will do the combat. They were to put singers first before soldiers. As they were praising God, the nations began to kill one another! Judah did not sustain any casualty as they did not need to fight. May you prevail over whatever has gathered against you. You may be little and have been confronted with great enemies, you will surely overcome. May those that have gathered against you help to eliminate one another. - You are faced with three issues, not knowing what to solve first. God says you will prevail over all of them. In 2 Chro. 32:1-22, the bible says King Hezekiah revolted against the greatest terrorist of the Eurasia region, Sennacherib King of Assyria which was an act of faith. But when Sennacherib declared war of Judah, Hezekiah became fearful.. . Message delivered by Pastor Samuel OBAFAIYE. http://rccgleeds.org.uk/you-willprevail-in-life/

RCCG EFA LEEDS MARCH THEME - DIVINE SUNSHINE
UNSHINE can be defined as the sun's light or direct rays; the warmth and light given by the sun's rays; a spot or surface on which the sun's light shines; or something (as a person, condition, or influence) that radiates warmth, cheer, or happiness. Divine sunshine will therefore be the beaming of light and direct rays proceeding from God Himself which brings warmth, cheer or happiness. In Acts 12:1-12, the bible tells us that after King Herod had killed James, the brother of John, he arrested Peter with the intention to kill him also. Herod was of the view that if Peter who was very outspoken was put out the way, the Gospel will suffer a terrible setback. Somehow, it looked like the plan was working as there was no demonstration or public pressure to release Peter by the people. But the Church was praying for him ceaselessly. The night preceding his supposed execution, God demonstrated His power. The Divine sunshine from heaven beamed on Peter and his freedom was effected! The rays of light made his handcuffs to fall off; it deafens the ears of his captors; it made the armed guards and warders to sleep off; and made several iron gates to open voluntarily! In this month of March, God said He will beam His supernatural sunshine upon us. The rays of heaven will be concentrated on us. This will set open doors before us compulsorily, grant us shocking freedom and destabilise the Herods, Soldiers and Warders chasing after our destiny. Chains and fetters around any of us will be shattered and the ears of those monitoring us will be deafened to our progress as they embark on involuntary slumber 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

Honour – The Outcome of Exceeding Great Rewards
By Pastor Aderemi ADELUGBA
ONOUR and reward are generally regarded as synonyms. Honour represents an official award for a great achievement. The word of God for you is that, your service unto Him will not go without being honoured in Jesus name. What does “honour” means? * Honour is a privilege which makes a man WEEKLY ACTIVITIES command very high respect. SUNDAYS * Honour means promotion, remuneration and ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL: medals. * Honour attracts accolade, award, reward, prize, 10:15 CELEBRATION SERVICE: decoration, distinction and title. 11:00AM - 1:00PM * Honour is a rare privilege. It is not given to everybody. HOUSE FELLOWSHIP: * Honour means to be esteemed, and it brings BTW 5:30PM - 7:30pm pleasure. WEDNESDAYS When you pass your degree, you receive an honour. DIGGING DEEP: There are some degrees which are handed out 6:30PM - 8:30PM without honours. Your own degrees will be SATURDAYS honourable in Jesus name. It is an honour to be a Christian: When you serve God, EVANGELISM (4th Saturday) He bestows His honour and inheritance upon you.

When you pay money to buy NIGHT VIGIL position, it is no longer an honour from God. 1ST FRIDAY (10PM -1AM) Honour requires service and work: Caleb followed the Lord, he was bold for the things of the Lord, and God counted it unto him as inheritance and double honour. Where others were fretting, he brought good report; and the Lord honoured and rewarded him. In Numbers 13:30 - And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. In Joshua 14:12, now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the Lord spake in that day; for in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the Lord will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the Lord said. 13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance. Even though it was delayed, Caleb still received his honour WATCH OUR CHANNEL and inheritance. The Lord will grant you all your entitlements in Jesus name.
