    Bishop Oyedepo October 25, Midweek Sermon- Empowered by the spirit to fulfill destiny

    Topic- Engaging the power of the spirit form conquest

    2 Corinthians 2:14 God has made opportunity for us to truimp. Triumph being declared winner without fighting. Thanks be to God who caused us to triumph, and this season you shall triumph in Jesus name.
    TWO MAJOR POWER CHANNELS FOR EVER TRIUMPHANT LIFE
    1. Revelation, and then power of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 22:25, Matthew 4:4 

    Living Faith Church Midweek Sermon October 25, 2017

    Matthew 4:4Amplified Bible (AMP)
    But Jesus replied, “It is written and forever remains written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.’”
    Jesus face the devil face to face, Jesus gave him the level he could not withstand. "Get thee behind" and the devil disappeared Jesus conquered by the power of the Holy spirit
    2. The knowledge of scriptures.
    The power of the scripture and revelation is available, how much of the Holy ghost you posses determine the level of the power you posses.
    The Holy Spirit, is the spirit of Joy- Full of joy, without the spirit of God, there is no true joy. Joy is rooted in the power of the Holy Ghost. Isaiah 61:3 the holy spirit impact joy, no money in your pocket yet you are happy.
    Importance of Joy- minus joy you are a victim in the battlefield of life. The world we live is not a platform for funfair but a battle field. 1 Thessalonians 5:16

    1 Thessalonians 5:16Amplified Bible (AMP)
    16 Rejoice always and delight in your faith;

     Rejoice ever more, Philippians 4:3 rejoice always, rejoicing always is triumph always. Joel 1:12, minus joy you are paralyzed. If you live in this world paralyzed and wounded you are a cheap victim. The physical sight of storms alone will make you Shiver, remember peter was bold, but in Matthew 14:28, but as he walked on water, built when the wind became though he began to sink, there is a stage innlife, except by the empowerment of the Holy he may fail. Proverbs 24:10 

    Proverbs 24:10Amplified Bible (AMP)
    10 
    If you are slack (careless) in the day of distress,
    Your strength is limited.
    Ephesians 3:16 the inner strength is your support to dare opposition and resist the devil. The Disciples faced such storm where knowledge failed Matthew 17:21

    Matthew 17:21Amplified Bible (AMP)
    21 [But this kind of demon does not go out except by prayer and fasting.]”
    Jesus also said in Luke 24:49

    How does it empower us?

    1. It build strength, Nehemiah 8:10, 
    David faced it, 1 Samuel 30:6 He was stressed, that is limitations of Man, but David encouraged himself. Encouraged yourself and turn to the Holy spirit. Don't trust on what you used in the past, depend on the higher level of Spiritual Empowerment as David did. He turned to the Lord, should I pursue and God said pursue and He recovered every thing. We need to learn how to switch over
    2. Isaiah 30:29, let's listen to the voice of God. When you are joyful, hearing from God becomes easy, but when you are sorrowful you only hear yourself, this will make you weaker! You see David  Encouraged himself. For battles they will come Jesus said Johnn16:33 be of Good cheer, though you shall see tribulations, yet cheer up! A challenge free Christianity is not in the Bible! Even if this one pass get set for another, however be of good cheer because you will always overcome.
    When you have joy, you won't murmur! To murmur is like fighting yourself. When you have joy you are delivered from murmuring, 1 Corinthians 10:10, help does not come via murmuring, it brings destruction. You cannot complain and obtain from God, the more you complaints the more the hand of supply is cut off from you.
    It takes joy to bring fullness of Joy! When you are Joyful you create an environment for Gods manifest presence. God will not come to a life that is devoid of joy. Psalms 114:1 Gods presence is the ultimate in the supernatural. When God is present you take over. The Holy spirit is the spirit of joy Acts 13:8
    Acts 13:8Amplified Bible (AMP)
    But Elymas the sorcerer (for that is how his name is translated) opposed them, trying to turn the proconsul away from accepting the faith
    Once you have a strong position in God you will see opposition, but turn to the Spirit. Acts 1:9 Paul was filled with the Holy Ghost spoke! Emphasis on He was filled with the Holy Ghost! You see you need the empowerment of the Holy Ghost! No power no performance! It takes power to take delivery. Luke 4:14 all manifestation of power he was empowered after he came from the mountain.
    Use this two elements, Power of and Empowerment of the Holy Ghost to overcome! Amen

    Charge by Bishop Oyedepo after the sermon
    Empowerment is an individual possession not a group, the Holy Ghost came on them one by one, God is the master anointer, go to him. You are next in line to take the world by storm. Don't watch your lamp go out, don't watch your light go off. Isaiah 55:1 we would always need empowerment for conquest and triumphant. We need empowerment, don't take the church as a club, you need the empowerment of the Spirit not jokes! Let's move!
    Pray extensively for the empowerment, you need to crave for empowerment it takes power to live above fear.
