The following are the steps to take to be heavenly anointed
Law of complete surrender.
This is the mystery behind the unusual hand of God upon the life of a man.
There is a system in the kingdom that causes God to invest such dimension of glory where a man can be such a host of the possibilities of God.
The law that governs this is found in Jeremiah 29:13. It’s called the law of complete surrender. Not the law of fasting and prayer. Your surrender vetoes your prayer.
Your surrender vetoes whatever it is. It says and ye shall seek me and find me when ye search for me with all your heart. That means Pastor, if I claim to search for Him and I cannot find Him; something about me is lying to me because the law is if you find Him, it’s a proof, all of you.
So I keep seeking to see His power and His glory, and I don’t seem to find him. And I keep seeking and I even cry and roll on the stage. Regardless of that performance, there is deception that is stopping the revelation of His presence.
And God is such that He will vet your sincerity until all of you respond to all of him. Otherwise you will never find him. To find him is not to be born again. It’s a deeper dimension.
Many pastors have missed this. Many individuals have missed this. They want power. They want grace and then they go on 40 days dry. Nothing wrong with that except that the motive; the motivation, your heart is not surrendered.
There was Hannah and Peninnah. Two people in the Bible that I used a lot. The Bible tells us that Peninnah had a child and Hannah did not have a child. Hannah wanted a child to proof that she was not a man.
And God said it’s not enough reason to give you a child but the day she aligned her will; you see that.
Brothers and sisters, anyone you see who is truly, heavily anointed with grace and authority; the price for that was death. It says so then Death works in us. It is like alcove.
You must pledge your all. You are not going to say oh God give me this and I decide what I will do.
No! The issue of surrender is a big deal in the realm of the spirit. It defines the limits of your possibilities: surrender.
There are people that you see as if God is owes them His presence. They evoke His presence and you see God shows up in a hurry as if His reputation is at stake.
They are men who are dead. Only dead can carry God. Because when He comes His assignments is to take any life that He did not bring.
There is a realm called Galatians 2:20. You die and then come back to life through another supply. Death to your ambitions that’s not consistent with Him and to allow His lordship reign.
Now, let me tell you something ; it’s not as easy as it looks. Ask Abraham. Take now thy son, thy only son whom thou lovest; your future, a representation of your pride, and offer him upon a mountain that I will show you.
It’s one thing to carry my child. Then, trek with him for three days. Then, hang him and kill him. Surrender.
When you see certain men of God, sometimes they may not even have as much revelations as you think but they stand and just say God bless you; and heaven comes in a hurry.
Brothers and sisters, it’s not about speaking; there is blood that makes that word comes to pass. That blood is a representation of their dying to self.
Please, believe what I tell you. There are men who everything about their life is a representation of God. They are the type that if God says carry your house and sow as a seed. They say yes sir.
They have lost the ability to say no to God. Don’t just covets people’s anointing and feel, oh I just want to… No! No! No! Much more than that; you can get a man’s tape. You can download , you can listen but you cannot receive his sacrifice.
As I’m saying this now many of you are finding it hard. You are wishing I will finish this one, quick to the next one. You know why, because there is something still alive.
So, we try to use God to the point where He meet our needs then we keep him; and God says I’m smarter than that. It doesn’t have a future.
There is nothing like God bless me you will see. I’m seeing already. I already see the deception in your heart. There is nothing like God prosper me and I will see. He says no.
He that’s faithful in a little is faithful in much. Not will be, he’s already faithful in much. I show you a secret that will make people’s prayer request become a gift to you
Die to his will and pick up the will of God. Don’t get to a point you complicate your life with flesh, self and carnality.
You come to a point where you tell him Lord I love you oooo, I love you.
One time the Lord asked me a question. He said son, can you die for me? I know many of you will just say yes. I thought about it honestly and I said no. I can suffer persecution for you. Except they kill me when I don’t know but consciously; not yet.
You see I’m very sincere with God. When God asks a question like this, He’s introducing you to a realm. God does not talk for nothing. He uses questions to introduce men into dimensions.
I knew that He wanted to supply another grace and revelation.
Brothers and sisters, I stand before the God of heaven , you are spiritual people.
There is nothing in my life today that I can not give him. Show me. I will kill it by myself. Ministry, with speed I will throw it a thousand times for His presence.
Let me show you a secret. Don’t just sit down and just… There are systems. There is absolutely nothing, absolutely nothing.
There are some of us if God says buy one fan you will say no no no. I reject that I’m not ready for this kind of thing. Please, don’t inconvenience me .I want to be comfortable. Yes.
I show you a mystery; this is what gives value to prayers. This is what gives value to every other thing; your motive.
The Bible says the heart of men is desperately wicked who can know. There were people in the Bible that committed certain things and they changed overnight.
Brothers and sisters, until God vets you; He can not trust you. He loves you but He can not trust you. To love you is a different thing than trusting you.
He loved Abraham all the while; but until Abraham put his life, his future… Romans 4 gives us the contemplation of Abraham that he was planning to kill Isaac, then knee down and beg God to bring him back to life.
A man defines his future, placed it down, picks up a knife; and God was still not sure he could kill him. He could change his mind but as he was bringing the knife down; God said Abraham stop for now.
Not when you left your house, not when you came to church.
Now I know that you fear me and because of that I swear. Come on sons of Abraham. Don’t just say Abraham blessings are mine.
The Bible says if you are Abraham seeds, you will do the works of Abraham. The works of Abraham is surrender as unto them.
A man who heaven watch adumbrating what the son of the living God will do. And He says no, in blessings I bless you; in multiplying, I multiply you.
There are men who because of their complete surrender to God have hosted certain dimensions of His grace in unusual levels.
You look at the man, he is preaching. What he is sharing your know it, but the results, you will search for where he finds it. It came from heaven through a yielded vessel.
If this is where I stopped today, I have shown you a secret. While you can lock up yourself and say, oh God make me like Pastor Shola, what is this grace of revelation?
And you are praying ,and hoping quickly that the anointing will come. So you will run and tell people in your village, I’m not a failure. God says that’s very emotional but is not enough reason to host my presence. Death!
Don’t get carried away just by nice clothes and English and Mic. Let me tell you, the Anointing come in response to death. Death! Death! When you die, every other thing can die.
If God says you should give everything, after all you are already dead. It’s a dead man that will not be embarrassed whether they called you Apostle Joshua Selman or they called you Bro. Selman.
Dead men don’t respond to those impulses. You have lost the ability to be affected by all of these things. Many things that we do shows we have not surrendered all. Oh, God can you give me 100 million. God gave you two hundred thousand and watch you.
You brought out the tithe, you return it back. And you say ‘kai haba’, at least let me share it, since I’m still going to bless my mother. Let me just take part of it and then use part of it. And God says look at your heart, you are still alive.
Do you know that there are people who their state is not kept by demons? It is best position designed by heaven to keep you fruitful.
So, you remain there until your yieldedness promote you to another level. There are pastors that will not cause 50 members. It’s dangerous for their spiritual life.
Let me tell you, keep your invitation cards and die.
The fastest way to publicize yourself in ministry is to remain in the secret place. Not run around disturbing people and say look, I’m a music artist; I assure you if you invite me, even you will know that I’m not a small person.
All those kinds of carnal ways of looking for success. There is a way God’s glory rubs off on you; the noise will be too loud. You can’t even stop it yourself.
When Jesus was about to resurrect, did you see what happened?
An angel came and roll the stone and sat on it; let me see who rolls it back. It’s time for Him to shine. That’s what happens to everyone who dies.
Jesus offered Himself. Philippians 2 says permit this mind, verse five, to be in you; which was also in Christ Jesus.
There was a construction of understanding; that I can die. He came as Jesus but laid down everything.
Let me show you how He was exalted. It was the psalmist who saw the coronation service.
The Lord said to my Lord sit down at my right hand until I make your enemy your footstool. And the Bible says this is how Jesus gained that office.
That He gave Himself and was obedient; hear this, obedient unto death. We are too alive in ourselves that’s why we cannot host His presence.
I pray tonight that somebody desiring an unction will truly see that this thing is not about just thinking I’m a prayer warrior. I’m not against prayer. Or just thinking I’m a world giant.
Have you listened to this? Yes I have the book. Have you listened? Yeah, I have listened to it . I even went to Bible Wonder land yesterday I just bought it. Oga, this thing is not working. Because God is not a politician.
Musicians come, gospel artists and several people. They sing and dance on stage and as soon as they go down, we can’t even remember what they said. Do you know why? Because you were just singing.
But when a dead man carries this mic, he will sing something that you will be crying for two weeks. If you can’t remember all the songs, you will remember just one line, one line. You don’t know all the song.
No other song will minister to you. You lock yourself and that becomes your song for two weeks.
And all of a sudden, you come out from that standpoint. And you see; and in one service, ten invitations are coming. And all coming from your destiny helpers; not just people who wants to use you. That’s how God lifts men.
Let me tell you something when I started out in ministry, Pastor, there were several people … We discussed a few things with Pastor yesterday.
There were several men of God, you know; different things, campus people, pastors, everybody wanting to go on TV, radio…
And God told me; sit down, stay with me.
You know He always tells you, stay and I will make you.
Some of you, let me tell you; stop rushing seasons. This is a word from God to you; stop rushing seasons.
The way to be fastest in your journey is to stay in one place with Him.
‘Martha, Martha’, you are worried. You are upset. You are running around and for ten years even the church has not started. Why don’t you stay with Him and get something of substance that you can take to the nations? And I stayed with Him.
Brothers and sisters, like a mad man, stay with Him. I remember, Pastor, after our first crusade; PFN said that they were willing to give a venue that I should come and establish a branch of our ministry.
Everybody say increase. Many of you will say that’s Jehovah sharp sharp; Apostle, doors are opening. No! I went to God and God used these exact words. He said you will die.
That’s how I replied the PFN chairman. I said sir, I just spoke to the Lord and He said I will die. And that means this thing, I’m not interested in it.
Not every open door is anointed. The fact that it is opened does not mean you should pass. Somebody is already rising.
There are people today that you should go back and close that small fellowship in all fairness and sincerity; and go back to God. And say Lord I’m tired of lying.
These gifts are not working. I keep telling people it’s the gift. You know you are not seeing anything. Cut all this confusion; stay with Him.
Why pretend over something that can be real? Why pretend you are anointed when you can really be? Stay! Stay! It may cost you.
Others may be six hours ahead of you like the disciples were. Jesus remained but when He got up; He started walking on water, and caught up within a short time.
There are businesses, people, it’s not yet time for manifestation. Because the place God is taking you to and the wealth He is committed to you, is about to commit to you; it requires Him having your heart.
