IT’S NOT ABOUT THE APPLAUSE OF MEN. IT’S ABOUT THE APPLAUSE OF GOD.
-Pastor David Ndubueze at International Youth Alive Convention 2021
- David – The Bible talked about David who was a nobody. Others came from legitimate means. I am speaking to certain people here right now who have gotten several excuses, ‘ I have got no father, I don’t have mother, my mother is a wayward person’. David came from an illegitimate relationship that was why when they counted the sons of Jesse, he was not counted. Church Gist.Genuine lovers don’t hide.
1 Samuel 13:14.
Loving God does not need qualification. Church Gist. David’s heart was after God continually.
- Solomon – from Proverbs Chapter 1, the father taught, the mother taught.
David knew this will be the King, David prepared him.
You were the head to the throne before your very eye someone took over the throne. And they came and reported to you. ‘ O heir, somebody is taking your throne’. They didn’t count you as anything.
We know that there is nothing in him. He is there but another guy has taken his throne. Church Gist. They are already sacrificing.
David had to fight from his dying bed.
Somebody has come to connect with the oil on this altar, it will make a difference in your life.
When Solomon survived that one, he ran to the mountain. The Bible said, Solomon loved the Lord. 1 Kings 3:3.
And Solomon loved the Lord and started proofing it. He went to a mountain and from that mountain he grew to become the wisest.
1 Kings 4:29-31
Good news. Not by your education but by the love of God, you are beginning wiser in the Name of Jesus Christ.
So, the love of God is the master key to the world of excellence.
- Saul, who came last, the first revelation of Boko Haram after Ismael.
He made this clear statement. In Romans 8:35-37.
To make it, you have to understand it.
What then is the love of God?
- It means a God first lifestyle. Loving God above everything else, above everyone else including one’s self. Church Gist. Your lifestyle becomes a God first lifestyle.
- Love is a choice, it is not a wish.
So, you don’t need to be a Pastor, you don’t need to be a child of a Pastor, you don’t need to wish, you don’t need to cry.
No, you don’t need gift, you don’t need qualification. All you need is a choice. God first!
Bishop Oyedepo said, I am a full time Christian and a part time student. Church Gist. Nobody can think good for himself/herself better than how God can think for you. Jeremiah 29:11.
The devil is angry that we are hearing these things. Church Gist. I see new testament David emerging. I see new testament Peters emerging.
Suddenly, they called us unlearned, they called us unreasonable, they called us ignorant but suddenly the love of God is bringing us up. Church Gist. I see new testament Esthers emerging. I see new testament stars emerging. I see new testament Pauls emerging. I see new testament Josephs emerging.
2 Corinthians 8:24.
Start proofing your love. 1 John 3:18.
Be genuine. Fake don’t make it. Church Gist. It’s not about the applause of men. It’s about the applause of God.
