THE FUTURE IS CODED IN YOUR OBEDIENCE
In September 2006, while praying in the sports complex at Obafemi Awolowo University, the Lord reminded me of an earlier instruction he gave in March. It was to gather young people under the same atmosphere of word and worship led by young people like them. I began to make moves to obey.
As we stepped into Eruwa the night of the meeting in December 2006, we began to supplicate that the Lord should raise young men in and from the land for the Land. I was simply obeying every prompt of the Lord.
In September 2009, while reading and studying early in the morning, the Lord gave me a specific call to the work in and from Eruwa.
Beloved, while you desire that the Lord give you a download of the future, make sure you obey the instructions that you hear today. Hidden in today’s instructions are the desired insight and images of the future.
Listen! The primary instructions must first be drawn from your fellowship with the Word of God. Jesus drew out the codes of his life from the prophecy of Isaiah.
And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, And recovering of sight to the blind, To set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Luke 4:17-19 KJV
He then brought that prophetic code into present-day understanding. While they looked at him keenly, he told them that what he had read to them was already being fulfilled in their eyes.
Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”
Luke 4:20-21 NKJV
The cost of disobedience is not always something evil. The cost of disobedience is sometimes the sacrifice of an opportunity that would have brought you closer to your prophetic future.
Some people in disobedience today still think they are fine because there is no evil occurrence. You seem to be living just fine. All things are smooth. Please listen, do you know what you have sacrificed?
What if Papa Adeboye or Papa Kumuyi had remained a University Don? We would have celebrated them in a form, but we would never have known the sacrifice of that action!
What is the weight of the sacrifice of your disobedience? You can only know in obedience or in eternity where God will be wiping the tears of believers who made heaven but did not live out His purpose and plans for their lives.
Lord, help me!
