To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee

in the sanctuary.
Psalm 63: 2 (King James Version)

e are in the last days and in


these days there is:

1.
The outpouring of the Spirit
of God (Acts 2:16-17; Joel 2:28).

When Gods Spirit comes, shame ends


and there is beauty instead (Isaiah
60:1). When Gods Spirit comes, your
life becomes an attraction. The last
days are the worst for the world in
terms of atrocities, calamities and
oppressions; but they are to be the
best for the church. When the Spirit of
God comes, there are no slow motions,
delays and distractions; our lives
become open testimonies. When Gods
Spirit came upon the life of a little
shepherd boy called David; forgotten
even by his family, he became the most
celebrated king of Israel. There were
one hundred and twenty people in the
upper room who had been isolated
and forgotten; from nonentities, they
became generational celebrities. Their
lives were dramatically changed. For
these things to happen, it does not
take time, but an encounter with God.

2.
The revealing of the Glory
of God (Habakkuk 2:14).

The earth shall be filled with the


knowledge of the glory of God as the
waters cover the sea. The suffering of
the present time is not worthy to be
compared with the glory of God that
shall be revealed to us and through
us (2 Corinthians 3:18). We are to be
the epitome of Gods glory. Our light
2 | Chronicles of Miracles April Edition 2015

affliction of this present time is


working for us a far more exceeding
and eternal weight of glory. The
shame around you is ending today
and the glory they shall see, shall
last forever (2 Corinthians 4:17).
The glory of God shall arise upon
you and distinguish you (Isaiah
60:1-3). Where you had been
forsaken and hated, He will make
you a joy of many generations.
When the glory comes, speed
and change comes and shame
goes (Isaiah 60:15, 22). By reason
of what God is doing in your life,
evangelism will be in the reverse.
Rather than you chasing men to
know God; by reason of the glory
of God in you, men will gather to
know your God. What they said
cannot happen for you, will come
to pass speedily. Your story will
change dramatically.

3. The manifestation of His


power (Psalm 110:1-3; Acts 1:8).

You shall receive power after the


Spirit of God comes upon you. The
power of God is the ability of God
(Ephesians 3:20). Everywhere you
go, people will see through you
the things that God can do. One of
my old classmates is still shocked
that I am a pastor knowing who
I was and my personality. Every
ability that is at work in me now,
is contrary to my natural capacity.

4. The kingdom of the world shall


become the kingdom of our God.

It is the day when the church will


dominate the world (Isaiah 2:1-3).
Authority will be domiciled in Zion
and will attract people to it. It does
not matter what you look like now,
you are destined to live a life of
dominion. You did not come to be a
nonentity; God brought you here to
matter to your generation. This is the
best time to be alive. In this church
age, those of us in Christ cannot be
understood by the world. In every
area of life, we are ruling. Christianity
is a relationship with Christ that
emphasizes God on the earth. There
is no day under heaven where the
cross of Christ and the dominion of
His Spirit will ever be subdued by any
other force. We are kings and priests,
with the responsibility to exercise the
dominion of Jesus. Whether the devil
likes it or not, we are going to reign
on the earth and humiliate him. These
last days are to be power filled days for
Christians; days of the demonstration
of the power of God.
The arrival of the Holy Spirit began
our encounter with power. This power
is also the power of resurrection.
The power of God will always be
more sufficient than the power of
man. Every time the grace of God is
introduced, sufficiency is introduced.
When your power is deficient, the
power of God kicks in. However we
understand that all of these become
our personal experience by the power
of resurrection.

What is the pathway to


resurrection power?
1. Revelation

The revelation you have of God


is what gives you access to power
(Ephesians 1:17-20).
What you
know of God and how much you
know of God is what determines
your advancement. You cannot
walk closely with God or in power
without encountering a revelation
of Him. Ezekiel was one of the
captives, but he was able to see the
visions of God and from that point
his life changed (Ezekiel 1:1). He
was then able to command the dry
bones in the valley. His relevance
started at his revelation. The
revelation of God that you have
is what determines the realm of
power you access and the promises

We are
kings and
priests,
with the
responsibility
to exercise the
dominion of
Jesus.
Chronicles of Miracles April Edition 2015 | 3

you can possess.

2. Prayer and fasting

The revelation of God is secured


on the altar of prayer (Exodus
33:18). Paul prayed for revelation
(Ephesians 1:16-19). Job, on the
prayer altar had a revelation of
what he had been hearing (Job 42:5;
Jeremiah 33:3). What is dominating
you requires extra light for you to
dominate it. When your light breaks
forth, your mountain breaks down.
You can grow but your mountain
cannot grow (Isaiah 64:1; 58:6-8).

3. The blood

The blood of Jesus is a powerful


weapon. Inside the blood is
resurrection power (Hebrews 13:20).
The blood is our escape from the
grave (Zechariah 9:11-12). It is the
last card of God (Revelation 12:11).
When the blood is invoked, the
devil must let go. When the blood
was invoked in Egypt, the end of
Pharaohs reign came. In that same
area of your life where the devil may
have been taking you by storm, you
shall have the victory. The power
of resurrection in the blood is what
transforms us from where we are, to
where we ought to be.

What is in the power of


resurrection?
1. It turns captivity to liberty

Every sleeping destiny is awakened


(Matthew 27:50-53). Every dead area
of life is resurrected (Ezekiel 37:1-14).
Where Gods Spirit is, there is liberty
(2 Corinthians 3:16-17).
4 | Chronicles of Miracles April Edition 2015

2. It turns defeat to triumph


(Colossians 2:14- 15)
There is a lifting up for you from the
edge of defeat (1 Corinthians 2:6-8).

3. It converts shame to glory (1


Corinthians 15:43)
Every dishonour will be turned to
glory.

4. It converts
breakthroughs

struggles

to

By an encounter, a group of one


hundred and twenty people became
over three thousand (Acts 2). What
should take you ten years to achieve,
would be done in three months, by
your hands. God will open your eyes
to hidden treasures (Isaiah 45:1-3).

5. It converts filthiness to holiness

Sin is the cheapest way to close a


persons destiny (Romans 1:4; 7:18).
What is sweet to the devil is poison
to you. Every sin, whether small or
big leads to hell (Hebrews 12:14).

6. It converts sickness to health

The power of resurrection will


transform you from weakness into
strength and from sickness into
health (Romans 8:11). The Spirit that
raised Jesus from the grave is the
power of resurrection. It is the same
power of God that is in us (Ephesians
1:19-20). When God spoke to Adam,
the breadth of life entered him and
turned clay into flesh. That same
breath in you will heal your mortal
body. This hour HIV must die,
hepatitis and cancer must bow;
whatever was planning to kill you,
the Spirit of God will kill it now.
Jesus went everywhere doing good

and healing everyone oppressed by


the devil because God was with Him
(Acts 10:38). You are not a candidate
for sickness. The Spirit that raised
Jesus that is inside you cannot permit
sickness. We are the temple of the
Holy Spirit and whatever defiles the
temple, God shall destroy. Whatever
sickness or disease is defiling your
body is destroyed.

rapture (1 Corinthians 15:51-52). In


a moment we shall all be changed.
That affliction does not need to last
more than a moment. No matter
how long it has lasted, it cannot
outlast this moment.

7. It converts death to life

You access it by salvation, you


increase in it by baptism in the
Holy Spirit but you activate it by
faith. When you are baptized, the
power becomes usable; it becomes a
river in you but you have to put it
to work by faith. We walk by faith
and not by sight (2 Corinthians
5:7). Our part is to believe that the
power of God is in us and that it is
at work in us converting sickness to
health and death to life. Faith is not
just a confession but a conviction.
When faith is activated, the power
is activated; when the power is
activated we see the power of God
demonstrated.

Jesus has the keys to life and death


(John 14:19; Hebrews 2:14-15;
Revelation 1:18). No devil can kill
you. Jesus laid down His life. A
Christian does not die; when hes
ready to go to heaven, he just puts
down his body (John 10:17-18). Tell
every enchanter and diviner they
are wasting their time because they
do not have power over death.
The doctor does not have power
to determine the end of your life
because he is not the giver of life.

STRAIGHT FROM THE PULPIT

Rather than you chasing men to know God;

Miracles in the Midweek

Divine healing and protection Helen O


I came for the prayer hour and felt led
to ask Pastor David to pray for me. Later
on in the night, I started praising God
and felt a counter reaction from the
pit of hell. My chest started to tighten
up and I told myself not to be afraid. I
remembered that Bishop Oyedepo has
never been sick and I stood on my faith
and kept on quoting the word. I took
the communion and today I am healed.
My sister in Nigeria was going to church
with her son on a motor bike when
some motor park thugs surrounded
them. They noticed that some people
had been butchered at that spot. She
started pleading the blood of Jesus and
before the men could reach them, they
disappeared back into the bush. I give
God thanks for His preservation.
Multiple blessings - Roy O
It was my birthday on Monday and
God has added another year to my
life. God has helped me establish lost
souls in the kingdom with no pressure.
Some of the people I invited to church,
including my sister are becoming more
established in the church. My prayer
points at Shiloh 2014 (annual gathering
of Winners Chapel members) and the 21
days of prayer and fasting in January,
have been answered at various levels.
I praise God.
Divine breakthroughs - Bukola
One evening, I felt dizzy and unsteady;
and this continued for some days. I
began to think that this would be the
way I would always feel however, I
came for an all night service and was
set free. One of my friends was about
to be deported and I came to church
for the prayer rally service on the 16th

of March. While here, I reminded God


of the good works my friend had been
doing for the poor. The next day, she
called and told me that the deportation
ticket had been cancelled. The ticket
was cancelled at the same hour that
we were praying in church.
After studying in 2012, the school kept
sending me letters that I owed them
money. In 2015, they asked for 800
and I wanted to pay them the money
even though I did not owe them. I
listened to a testimony of a sister
which encouraged me and I cast my
cares unto God. They later contacted
me that they were the ones who owed
me money, and were refunding 250 to
me.
Divine Promotion via prayer
rally service - Agnes A
At the beginning of the year, I decided
that I would progress in my career and
start collating my portfolio. In January,
Pastor David preached on a force called
favour, which carries power and I knew
that was my word. February and March
passed and I still had not started the
portfolio. At the last prayer rally service,
I anointed my prayer card for favour
and prayed in the Spirit then thanked
God. By the following Tuesday, we were
called into a meeting at work. There
was a restructuring and some people
were made redundant. My managers
boss wanted me to be moved to a
specialized team which was a level
higher than where I was. My manager
gave her reasons as to why she wanted
to retain me and her boss said those
were the same reasons why I should
move to the new team. I started the
new role on the 1st of April. Praise God.
