Favour: Essential Ingredient For Daybreak By Pastor Samuel OBAFAIYE ARLY this month, I declare the intention of God to grant us supernatural daybreak from this month and beyond. The Men of God that had spoken afterward have highlighted areas of particular attention for us to consider in order that we might enjoy supernatural daybreak. Prophet Raymond has spoken on obeying God at all cost. Spoke on sacrifice, obedience and covenant as it relates to obtaining supernatural daybreak. Reverend Alexandra has only last week talked about commitment as a means of obtaining a new dawn from God. Today, I'm led by God to speak briefly on the aspect of the favour of God as it relates to supernatural daybreak, having fulfilled the said above. That is, after sacrifice, obedience, covenant and commitment, there is something called favour. May it locate you in Jesus name. This church without any doubt is enjoying the favour of God. Most people still wonder how we got to where we are. Whenever some could not figure how, they result to downplaying or criticising. What most of them do not know is that though we are favoured, but it does not come cheap. As a church, we give sacrificially: WEM, COF, First Fruit, African Mission, FOL, FOL Midlands, HG Convention, HG Congress, G.O Birthday, G.O. Visits, Pastors ahead of us, Members special days, Service refreshments, etc. are some of the areas we sow sacrificial seeds. As touching obedience, we have steered the church towards this course. Regarding the word of God - we make sure we do not dilute or compromise. We strive to practise what we preach. We RCCG EFA LEEDS HOUSE FELLOWSHIP CENTRES endeavour to obey specific and general instructions. Regarding covenant, God made a covenant of Ls1, LS2, LS7 & LS8 uniqueness with us at the inception of this church. It was a Flat 147, 20-20 House, struggle with the Holy Spirit for us to start. Eventually, Skinner lane when we submitted to the Holy Spirit and started, God LS7 1BE said He will make us a city that is set upon a hill. (Ajayi’s Residence) We were given the mandate to preach the undiluted word and observe a fast at the last week of every year. Ls3, LS4, LS5, Ls6, Regarding commitment, it is something we embarked Ls12, LS13 & LS16 upon from the onset with great passion. This has rub on 15 – 17 Walter Street, many within the church too. Things like punctuality, Off Kirkstall Road, hospitality, giving, etc. are what we are committed to. Leeds, Ls4 2BB Do you want Divine favour for supernatural daybreak?

Leeds, LS10 4GD Daddy G.O shared a testimony before of a member that went to him and said, "I am about to attend the most YORK ROAD important interview of my life".

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed, When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings, name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done. Count your blessings, name them one by one, Count your blessings, see what God hath done! Count your blessings, name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done. Are you ever burdened with a load of care? Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear? Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly, And you will keep singing as the days go by. Refrain When you look at others with their lands and gold, Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold; Count your many blessings. Wealth can never buy Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high. Refrain So, amid the conflict whether great or small, Do not be disheartened, God is over all; Count your many blessings, angels will attend, Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end. Refrain
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

Enough of Wandering, Go and Occupy
By Pastor Aderemi ADELUGBA
RETHREN, today is the last Sunday of the month of February, the Lord has already started to fulfil the things He declared concerning you this month. You will receive the strength and power to move and occupy the territory which He has given you in Jesus name. You will not wander away in Jesus name. To wander means to move without a definite destination. It also means moving in an indirect route, and in an unusual course. This type WEEKLY ACTIVITIES of journey could cost one several years, if God is not in it. But if you have Christ you will receive definite SUNDAYS direction in Jesus name. Peradventure you have ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL: missed it before, He will help you to rediscover your 10:15 path, and you will not waste time in arriving at the CELEBRATION SERVICE: place the Lord has mapped for your destiny in Jesus 11:00AM - 1:00PM name. We all struggle about questions relating to our HOUSE FELLOWSHIP: future, and how to achieve what God has spoken BTW 5:30PM - 7:30pm concerning your life. But the Lord is asking you to WEDNESDAYS fully surrender to Him, and He will help you in Jesus DIGGING DEEP: name. The children of Israel wandered in the wilderness for a 6:30PM - 8:30PM SATURDAYS very long time. Joshua 5:6 states - For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the EVANGELISM (4th Saturday) people who were men of war, who came out of 3:00PM Egypt, were consumed, because they did not obey DRAMA MEETING: 5PM the voice of the Lord—to whom the Lord swore that CHOIR MEETING;5:00PM He would not show them the land which the Lord SINGLES MEETING:had sworn to their fathers that He would give us, “a (3rd Sat) - 3PM land flowing with milk and honey.”.The Lord spoke MONTHLY ACTIVITIES about the territory and the land, He was bringing them, but this took forever for them to achieve Celebration Service:1st Sunday of the Month. because of unbelief and disobedience. God wants Anointing Service:you to stop wandering, He just wants you to believe Last Sunday of the Month. and occupy. Holy Communion:So to occupy any territory, it would require prayer, Last Wednesday of the Month. planning, leadership and making the move. I don’t Women Fellowship:know if God has told you to proceed, and occupy a 3rd Saturday - 1:00pm certain position, and you are still wandering and Men Fellowship:Bimontghly - 6:30pm going around in circles. You need to encourage NIGHT VIGIL yourself like Joshua did, and begin to make that 1ST FRIDAY (10PM -1AM) move, and the Lord will establish you. In Joshua 1:1-9, The Lord said to Joshua, Moses, my servant is dead, now therefore arise, go over the Jordan. It is now Joshua’s turn to lead the Israelites to the Promised Land. The instruction was so clear and straightforward that Joshua could not begin to misinterprete the word of God. You all know that sometimes, when God message has been given to you, people try to make sense of it, rationalise it and even, translate it the way they like. Don’t translate His words for Him, just do it. Be courageous – Enrol on that course of studies, Accept the job offer and Begin to write that business plan. It would be impossible to achieve anything if you cannot put yourself forward and begin to explore new things. It will not be by your power nor might, it would have to be by the strength and mercy of God. Begin to possess the land. If you don’t wake up from your slumber you will WATCH OUR CHANNEL not receive the power and faith to move out of the wilderness. It took courage for Rehab to boldly hide the men on the roof in her house. God has declared it, it will be performed. . Excerpts of a sermon by Pastor Aderemi ADELUGBA on 23rd February, 2014.
