Acquiring Revelation from God

How do you get to the point where you are able to capture revelation from God about any given situation? In practical terms, the Bible says, ‘now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place (2Cor 2:14). God causes us to triumph in Christ Jesus, and then He makes manifest through us the savour of His knowledge. What this means is that in any situation, God causes us to first celebrate the victory of Jesus Christ i.e. in all situations we are victorious. Jesus Christ has overcome, therefore we should stand still, for the solution is here and is accessible. So we need to first stand still and rejoice in the victory of Jesus.

And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things (Ps 45:s4). This means a man that begins to offer up praise is setting himself up for revelation from God. So, in any circumstance where you find yourself, the first thing to do is that you need to celebrate the victory of Jesus. The second thing you need to understand, is that He will make manifest the savour of His knowledge by you, in every place and that particular challenge as well. There is also a certain knowledge that He wants to impart in that given situation that is actually going to cause the manifestation of victory. The translation of that victory from the spiritual realm to the natural in your life depends on the knowledge you have acquired. It is that knowledge you need to come in contact with in your life concerning any situation in order for change to come... Pastor Poju Oyemade

Your words as a breach in the spirit

Words can cause a gap in the spirit realm when they are not consistent with what you want to happen in your life. When this is the situation, even prayer cannot make these things happen. Although the resources are available in the unseen realm to make it manifest, the breach caused through your words will not enlist angelic assistance. Spoken words are the ladder that connect heaven and earth. When the gap is bridged angelic activity occurs.

You must understand the power of your words in order to do things the right way. Furthermore, you must also ensure that you do not have any idols that have replaced God in your life. One of the ways to do this is to ensure that it is ONLY God that knows the intimate details of your life. When you worship and praise Him and you will see His salvation in every aspect. (Matthew 18:19)

Joshua 1:8 clearly states, ‘this book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. (KJV) According to the passage above, success is a result of doing everything that concerns an issue i.e. not part but all. For instance, failure occurs in an examination because the individual did not know the answer to the questions posed. So, you must know the answer to the questions that life asks of you at every point in time.

2 Corinthians 2:14 states, ‘Now thanks be unto God which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of His knowledge by us in every place (KJV). It is the knowledge given to us that makes us victorious. In Colossians 1:9 Paul asked that God fill the Colossians with the exact and precise knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. One of the ways we attain this knowledge is by keeping the Word on our lips so that we meditate on it, know it and then do it.. Pastor Poju Oyemade

Understanding the Kingdom and Operating in it.

Jesus explained that without understanding the parable of the seed (Matthew 13:3-8), it would not be possible to understand how to operate in God’s kingdom. The seed of the kingdom of God is the Word of God. Thus, the start of God’s work in anyone’s life, begins with His Word. In any situation that you find yourself you must locate the relevant Word for it and sow it inside your heart. If one does not understand this process, the individual will look for the external manifestation rather than understand the internal process that has begun once the seed has been planted.

It is the Word sown that produces thirty, forty, sixty and a hundred fold. (Matthew 13: 18-23). Unfortunately, because people do not understand the procedure, they try and get the results that they have not planted the Word for through prayer. This is rather like a farmer trying to harvest what he did not plant! Simply put if you do not plant anything in your heart you cannot harvest any results outwardly.

Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness and receive with meekness the engrafted Word which is able to save your soul (James 1:21)(KJV). It is the Word that produces results time and time again. So mightily grew the Word of God and it prevailed. (Acts 19:20). Once you receive the revelation, through prayer you must keep the Word constantly before you i.e., the Word inside the heart and on the lips produces the results God ordained for each and every situation, producing signs and wonders every single time...
