Speaking on the present-day revival of the church, The President of Living Faith Church worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo explained that No man will go to heaven based on his terms, adding that it takes God to make heaven.
In his sermon on Sunday 11th of June 2023, the foremost clergyman explained that only a humble spirit is positioned to experience a renewal in the ongoing revival of the church.
Advising his congregation to beware of pride, Bishop Oyedepo urged everyone to comprehend that the truth is bitter but it’s meant to make life better, just as a medicine is bitter but restores health to a sick individual.
He cautioned the church against the practice of gay and lesbianism.
“Evil communication corrupts good manners, be careful where you send your children in these times, so they don’t return one day to introduce same-sex to you for marriage purpose”.
“I’ve been in this walk with God for 54yrs and the fear of God as a lifestyle is the mystery behind the success of this commission” he asserted.
Stating that working on oneself is the first step to growth before walking to advance the kingdom of God, he added that self-discovery in building faith sets up a standard for believers.
Accentuating the proofs of a revival, he illustrates that genuine repentance is a factor to peg in identifying true revival
“Every evil act begins with an evil thought, if you must prevent the act, then rebuke the thought Mark 7:21”.
“A redeemed believer gets peace from heaven that remains steadfast even in the period of worldly storms Galatians 5:22”.
Furthermore, Bishop Oyedepo said when one takes advancing the kingdom of God as a way of life, it’s another indicator of a revival.
