NOVEMBER 2013 THEME:
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. Sennacherib was a terrible destroyer, every nation he fought were turned to rubbles and ruins. Hezekiah and all the people with him were greatly distressed. He cried to God for help. God promised that Sennacherib would not fire an arrow into Judah. So it happened that at a particular night, an angel of God went through the camp of Assyria and killed 185,000 soldiers! When Sennacherib woke up in the morning, it was dead bodies everywhere. He ran away and was later killed by his own sons. Again, Judah did no sustain any casualty as they did not fight. What is that Sennacherib that has risen against your life? You have been gentle with it and it has not gone. You have spent money and time on it and it has not gone. Today, God will send an angel against it. It will lose its venom from you in Jesus name. The mouth of Sennacherib's spokesmen were very sharp and blasphemous before, but became silent in the grave. May God seal the mouth of the ‘Rabshakehs’ against your life. May they eat up their boasts in Jesus name. - Someone has vowed to deal with you, giving you specific examples of those he/she has dealt with before. They will not succeed in your case. In 2 Kings 6:24-33; 7:1-20, the bible says that the Syrian soldiers encamped against Israel so that people began to eat their children in turns! So, Elisha prophesied that in 24 hours, food will become seriously cheap. It happened that overnight that day, God made the Syrians to hear a strange noise. So they thought Israel has asked for reinforcement from other nations. So the Syrians fled in haste, leaving all their food, ammunition and plunders behind. Again, the Israelites never sustained any casualty, as they did not have to fight. Could you be going through a terrible famine? What is that thing that you are deprived of? Could it be life threatening? Has anyone blocked where your supply should have come from? May such people hear a blast from Heaven. May confusion engulf those that are milking on you illegally. May they run and leave their stuff freely for you. Excerpts of a sermon delivered by Pastor Samuel OBAFAIYE on October 27th, 2013.

O FOR A THOUSAND TONGUES TO SING RCCG EFA LEEDS HOUSE FELLOWSHIP CENTRES
O for a thousand tongues to sing My great Redeemer’s praise, The glories of my God and King, The triumphs of His grace! Jesus! the name that charms our fears, That bids our sorrows cease; ’Tis music in the sinner’s ears, ’Tis life, and health, and peace. He breaks the power of canceled sin, He sets the prisoner free; His blood can make the foulest clean, His blood availed for me. He speaks, and, listening to His voice, New life the dead receive, The mournful, broken hearts rejoice, The humble poor believe. Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb, Your loosened tongues employ; Ye blind, behold your Savior come, And leap, ye lame, for joy.

ESOUNDING as related to this theme will be defined as ‘clear and emphatic; enormous; unmistakable huge; massive; very great; tremendous; terrific; colossal; total’. While joy could be define as ‘the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation’. In life we experience variations of joy. While some are small and could be hidden, resounding joys are however huge and vivid. God promised Abraham and Sarah that they would become father and mother of nations, but they were childless at 75 years and 65 years respectively. At a later time in their lives, a child called Ishmael came along in disobedience, instead of this development to be a joyous one; it was bitterness and sadness it brought (Gen. 16: 1-7; 21: 9-14). At age 100 and 90, they both had the Promised Child, it was a time of resounding joy for them. Abraham called all the neighbouring settlements and made a great feast. It was an elation that couldn’t be mistaken or hidden (Gen. 21:1-8). In this month of November, God has promised us in Everlasting Father’s Assembly a time of tremendous and unmistakable joy and delight. We will be filled with great elation; and things that are exceptional good will come our way in Jesus name. Pastor Samuel Obafaiye
THE RCCG (EVERLASTING FATHER’S ASSEMBLY) 2013 PROPHECY. THEME: OUR YEAR OF GOD’S REST Isaiah 65: 21-24, Isaiah 14:1-4
WAS meditating recently to find out from God what will be our theme for 2013. There were certain challenges I saw in 2012 that I was asking God to completely eradicate in the next. God answered and said, "All covenanted ministries (whether individual or church) will hit major storm in their 3rd year. If the ministry escapes that by grace, a greater storm will come against it in its 6th year. If the ministry equally escapes the double storm, it will then qualify for the blessings of the 7th year”. For us in Everlasting Father's Assembly, there were storms that we went through at three years. To the glory of God, we escape them all. Also at six years, thank God for all the astounding accomplishments that we have enjoyed, we also escaped double storms. Glory be to God! So I asked God, since we have escaped the sixth year, what is the blessing of the seventh year? He took me back to the creation of the world. He said, ‘What did the bible says I did on the seventh day’? And I said that You rested from Your labours. So, God said "2013 is your year of My rest". Note that it is the God's rest, not our kind of rest. The bible says that God does not sleep nor slumber (Ps. 121:4). So it's not a rest of sleep. Neither is it of folding of hands. It is a rest from excessive labours and entering into excessive favours. The seventh day was a time when God stopped creating on this earth, but switched to watching over what He has created. In 2013, God will help us to look after what He has created for us and through us. We will supervise and oversee machinery that will run itself. Every system that God has helped us to create will begin to work for us. Grace will supersede haste. There was a time when the Israelites were fighting Canaan, the Israelites were outnumbered. So God began to use constellations to fight for them (Judges 5:20). God will assign hosts of heaven to work for us in 2013 By Pastor Samuel Obafaiye
