We just concluded this year’s convention in my local assembly (Living Faith Church Worldwide) this last saturday. This was the reason I couldn’t make a post here last week. It was a super awesome time in the presence of God. The yearly program which has been tagged “Shiloh”, had DOMINION as subject matter for 2018. Bishop David Oyedepo, the Founder and Apostle over the commission opened our understandings to the dominion life in Jesus, whose Spirit we now possess hence, we too showing forth a dominating character in a world where darkness is bent on destroying as many as possible.
And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heavens shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High; His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions shall serve and obey Him.
On Saturday, after the prophetic declarations and announcements that the year 2019 shall be called; “I HAVE DOMINION”, the program of 5 days came to an exciting conclusion. As I left for home, the excitement on my face couldn’t align with the apprehension in my mind. Who will understand that as much as I’ve been extremely blessed, impacted and anointed from the 5 days, I was still apprehensive? I’ll tell you why.
[Hab 2:2] ISV When he answered, the LORD told me: “Write out the revelation, engraving it clearly on the tablets, so that a courier may run with it.
The major issue with many of us these days is not lack of vision neither is it inability to document it. Our major contention in the birth of prophetic declarations and emergence of revelations is “running with it.” Tits and bits of the words I heard in that five (5) days convention were not strange to me. Infact I’ve known them all along. But right there I seem to be much more aware that the race is not to the ones that know, but to them that do.
I understood that shouting and getting excited will give us nothing and simply because an anointed man of God is prophesying over our lives doesn’t mean we have to go and do nothing. And like Pastor David Ibiyiome of Salvation Ministries said in one of the sessions that we shouldn’t just be excited. We must be set to make the Dominion Mandate a reality. Going home that day, I was strategising, planning, shifting, prioritising, making changes and formulating how to, and how not to go about making the coming year my year of dominion indeed.
After God provided everything Adam and Eve needed, He still expected them to take care of the Garden of Eden. Every prophetic word from the alter has an instruction that must be followed to have it birthed. Bishop David Oyedepo will say a faith that demands all from God without a thing to do is an irresponsible faith. Just as we’ve been saved, yet we have to work out our salvation with fear and trembling.
I HAVE DOMINION IN 2019!!!
