-Bishop David Oyedepo at CHoP

* My passion for Christ gave me my place in destiny.

* I was not baptized in the Holy Ghost when Jesus started that Church in 1973

* People are bothered about too many things, that is why too many things are not working. 

* Revival time is work time.

* May the 11th hour not pass over anyone.

Give God thanks for answers to our prayers today. Give God thanks for making you a partaker of this wave of glory. Give God thanks for answering your own prayers today. Give Him thanks because your labour shall not be in vain. Give Him thanks because you are changing level by your obedience this time. Celebrate and magnify Him, there is no one like Jesus. In Jesus precious name we have given thanks. 

Now we should respond to everything in this season as revived souls. We should mind our approach so we can make the most of this season. 

-I know many people’s turnaround in life is tied to what he or she does with this season.

If you believe yours is there, let me hear your loudest Amen! Because we serve a God of time and seasons and He makes all things beautiful in His time (Eccelesiastes 3:1,11)

-Many people will access next levels realm of beauty through their engagement in this season. 

Prayer: Lord, ignite your love in me, that will make me a bona fide partaker of the blessings of this wave of glory. Lord, ignite your love afresh in my soul so I can become a bona fide partaker of this glorious wave. Thank You Jesus. Shed your love abroad in my heart. Get me on the path of delightsome obedience to your commandments, your instructions, your directives. So help me Lord. 

Speak to me Jesus, I want to hear from You this morning (Luke 21:38). One Word from God can set a man on a new pedestal forever. 

Father, thank You for another bright day. Thank You for this awesome week of harvest. Thank You for what You are out to do in the lives of everyone of us. Receive our thanks in Jesus name. Speak to us this morning and let your Word put us where we truly belong. In Jesus precious name.

What a planting season is to a farmer is what a revival is to us as believers. 

It is a spiritually demanding season for everyone who cares to engage. It is ordained a spiritually demanding season for anyone who cares to engage. It takes you and me out of business as usual to business proper. 

1 Chronicles 13:7 – They put the Ark on the cart, the Ark reacted, because the Ark is ordained to ride on the shoulders of men and God caused a breach among them. He slewed Uzza for putting his hand to help the Ark from falling (1 Chronicles 13:10). Then in 1 Chronicles chapter 15 verse 7, they discovered why that happened and re-positioned to let the Ark ride on the shoulders on the priests as ordained by God. 

1 Chronicles 15:7, 12-14 – Then the Ark was carried to its place. The movement of the Ark is an illustration of a revival. It rides on the shoulders of men. Jesus found the lost sheep, put that sheep on his shoulder, “rejoice with me for I have my sheep which was lost.” That’s what makes it a demanding season. 

Haggai 2 – In that prophetic revival, He said, “be strong and work, because your work shall be rewarded” (Haggai 2:14).

2 Chronicles 15:7 - “Be strong and work”. It is work, revival time is work.

-May each one receive grace to engage appropriately for maximum returns in Jesus precious name. 


There is a place for every believer in a revival. That is a place for everyone in a revival. 

Simple illustration we have in Matthew chapter 20, verses 1 to 10. There is a place for every believer in a revival. Every believer that chooses to engage, there is more than enough room. The sky is too wide, they say for two birds to collide. You will never know…there are birds flying in their millions, maybe billions in the atmosphere, yet the sun has not been shielded from shining. There is a place for everyone in space. There is a place for you and I. Everybody has a place. The vacancies cannot be filled. Everybody He met in that parable, there was place for them and said whatever is due you will be paid, it’s not just a place for fun, it is a place of business, you will be paid whatever you are due by the end of the day. But don’t forget, He stopped at the 11th hour. 

-May you not watch your 11th hour pass without waking up and taking your place. 

Nothing can be more regretful than to think back on opportunities lost. Opportunities! It can be so painful and yet you can’t recall. I can’t be enlisted in the army anymore, it’s late, gone forever. No. I am too young to be enlisted now. I can’t become a Sports star anymore, too late and forever. The 11th hour has passed!

-May the 11th hour not pass over anyone’s life here. 

Today we are looking at a place for witnessing Christ to the lost. Everybody has a place in the field of soul winning. Everybody! 

John 15:1-2

Every branch is ordained a fruit bearing branch, that is the meaning. Now are you talking about the fruit of the Spirit? No! harvest of souls into the Kingdom. He said in( John chapter 25) verse 8, “in this is my Father glorified that you bear much fruits.” 

John 15:16

He is talking about bringing fruits of the souls of men into the Kingdom. There is a place of soul winning for every believer in the vineyard. It is not a gift, it is a choice. 

This is my commandment, I have chosen that you should go and bring forth fruits; work that you should that your fruits abide, then you win my favour. Whatever you ask the Father in my name, He will give it to you (John 15:16).

There is a place for everyone in a revival to engage in soul winning. 

What is in it? You have my commandments, you keep it, my Father will love you, I will love you. I will manifest myself to you, turn you to a living wonder among men (John 14:21). 

What is that commandment? It puts you in command of the supernatural. Church Gist, Everyone that is sent and went, the supernatural answered to them. They were practically in command (Mark 16:20). Every fruitful soul winner enjoys another level of command of the supernatural, so it is the marketing point. 

-You will not miss your place in it. 

Jesus said I must work the works of Him that sent Me while it is day (before the 11th hour is over), for the night cometh where no man can work (John 9:4). 

Be awake. Soul winning is not just about sharing the gospel, it is also about sharing your testimonies. The testimony at the well brought a whole lot of people from the city to meet with Jesus. Many were saved through her testimony and many more got saved as she brought them to Church, to Jesus Christ (John 4:29, 39). 

You don’t need experience to share your story. If you have truly an encounter with Christ, you are a soul winner. 

It’s an open-ended platform for living an enviable life on the earth. Going after souls with genuine passion to see them saved. 

-You will not miss your place in it.

Every child of God is called to be an ambassador of Christ with a mission to reconcile the world back to God. 

2 Corinthians 5:17-20

Don’t let anybody harass you, “I have a ministry.” Every child of God has a ministry of reconciliation that came along with his redemption. Every child of God has a ministry. Now listen me, now watch, I wasn’t baptized in the Holy Ghost in 1973, when Jesus started that Church. So what are you doing with your Holy Ghost? I was baptized in the Holy Ghost in 1975, passion for souls ran in me to see them saved. Every child of God. The Samaritan woman wasn’t baptized in the Holy Ghost, she drafted the whole town to Jesus, so you just have to make your choice. It is everybody’s business and it is ordained for our change of story. 

See my encounter from that place, how it is speaking till now, “the light you have brought to our village, let it shine round the world.” My God. Passion gave me my place in destiny. Passion for Christ. Church Gist. People are too bothered about too many things that is why too many things are not working. 

We know that all things work together for good to them that love God (Romans 8:28).

-Beginning from this season, all things will start working together for your good: in the city, outside the city, within the country, outside the country, in the name of Jesus. 

Say with me, “I have a ministry, a ministry of reconciliation from Christ given to me at my new birth.”

2 Corinthians 5:19

“Come over. Jesus makes living meaningful.”

“Come over, Jesus gives peace that passes all understanding.”

“Come over”: you are inviting them to Jesus for their change of stories.

Every child of God is redeemed an ambassador for Christ and God by us is reconciling the world to Himself (2 Corinthians 5:20).

We are redeemed as ambassadors of Christ and among other things, “a faithful ambassador is entitled to healthy living.” 

Every ambassador of every nation enjoys the backing of his home country. He eats their food, he drinks their water. If anything goes amidst, they fly him straight, air ambulance, straight back to his country for the needed attention. He represents that nation bodily. 

So when you are in, you take your ministry of reconciliation, you are ordained an ambassador for Christ, representing the Kingdom of God on the earth with amazing immunity around your person, household and all that pertains to you. 

There is a place for you in the field of soul winning for you, for life. 

Interestingly therefore, furthermore, everyone reaping and gathering fruits into the Kingdom gets on God’s payroll. He that reapeth receiveth wages as he gathers fruits unto life eternal (John 4:35-36). There are definite guarantee returns for our engagement.

-You won’t miss it. 

-I know something, there are people here today that the remaining days of your life which are many, if Jesus tarries, you will not know the meaning of sickness anymore. As you faithfully engage in the harvest field, you have committed God to take sickness from your body, every part of your being and that shall be your experience. 

So we have that open-ended opportunity to witness Christ, to testify of him and to invite people to him. So you don’t have to be a preacher, an accredited preacher, a very powerful preacher, just a child of God, a son and a daughter of God who is overwhelmed with the love of God and sharing the same with other people. 

It’s our Operation Andrew week. Make sure you engage. 

Your engagement today will show tomorrow. 

Your lack of engagement today will also show tomorrow. 

God is not mocked, whatever a man sows that shall he reap (Galatians 6:7). You can’t pray to reap from a seed you have not planted any seed. It doesn’t work and will never work because while the earth remaineth seedtime and harvest shall not cease (Genesis 8:22).

There is a place for every believer in a revival. 

Say with me, “there is a place for me. There is a place of glory, a place of honour, a place of lifting, a place of scaling new heights, in this revival.”

Prayer: Call for the help of the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit, help me to maximise this awesome prophetic season in my life.

Pray that prayer from the depth of your heart. Help me to maximise this awesome prophetic season in my life, not business as usual but with fervency of spirit serving the Lord. Fervency of spirit serving the Lord. Help me Jesus. 

Pray that prayer: that on the altar of prayer, you are harvesting souls into the Kingdom; with passion for souls you are calling them, you are writing them, you are compelling them to come, thank You Jesus. Blessed be your name in Jesus precious name. 

Well, we all know that nobody waits on a door, knocking forever.

“Hello, anybody in the house!! Hello, they are not here”: Whatever package he brought, he takes it back.

-May you be found there!!

-No one will pass the 11th hour. 

-May each one receive grace to respond promptly this time. 

Next Sunday, there shall be no room in the inn because we are going all out to demonstrate your passion and your love for God by your love and passion for the lost. They shall be saved in their numbers.


Today is your day. Everything is working in your favour today. 

No distractions, no concerns. 

Your focus remains and you are encountering favour today as you engage your heart in seeking after God. 




CHoP is an acronym for Covenant Hour of Prayer.
