Founder of the renowned transnational Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo said, Ebola is a new plague from hell. He said he had to address it because as the Bible says, “my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”.
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will rest in the shadow of the
I will say of the Lord, “He is my
refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust”. [NIV].
Therefore, any child of God that is dwelling in the lord is by the law of the spirit exempted from whatever torments the world around him.” Therefore, it shall never be mentioned in your household”, he prophesied.
“I will say of the lord”. So, what you say is very important.
Verse 10.”…then no harm will befall you,
No disease will come near your
Well, I hope you believe this?
Because what you believe is what you are empowered to become.
The reason why most of us are not out of financial crisis is because we over identify with the economic environment.
“There is global economic crisis. And how global is your business, that is now telling on you.Because of your over identification with the environment outside of the kingdom, you become a partaker of their crisis.”
“There shall no evil befall you”.
“Many years ago”, He said,” small pox invaded the apartment where we stayed. Everybody came out in the morning painted white except my house. It was a block of six flats. Everyone had representation in the white coloring.
“You need the exemption mentality not to be afflicted for as a man thinks, in his heart so is he”.
The New Testament Church is superior to the Old Testament Church. And the Old Testament church enjoyed feasible exemption from the torments and turmoil’s around them.
Acts 7:38,”This is he that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sine, and with your fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us”, [KJV], talks about Israel as the church in the wilderness. And if that was that glorious, then how shall the church of Jesus Christ of the living Christ today be?
They were exempted from the swarm of flies which connote decadence and separation which Ebola is admonishing.
“But on that day I will deal differently with the land of Goshen, where my people live; no swarms of flies will be there, so that you will know that I, the Lord, am in this land”.[NIV].
There was the dearth of livestock and all the cattle of Egypt died.
“But the Lord will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel and that of Egypt, so that no animal belonging to the Israelite will die”. [NIV].
Even your cattle are exempted. And you are much more than the sparrows.
You need an exemption mentality. That is where my cattle are preserved, and then my children cannot be touched.
When bird flu came, it went everywhere; there were places it could not get to.
You need exemption mentality, otherwise, tomorrow; you won’t shake your wife’s hands.
You still have to go to the market, buy, eat etc.
Science is eternally inferior to spiritual truth. The Bible calls science “falsehood” compared with the truth of scriptures.
“O Timothy, keep that which is committed to your trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
Which some professing have erred concerning the faith…” [KJV].
That plague is cursed. It returns back to the sea it came from. West Africa refuses to accommodate. The presence of the ark of God in these parts rejects it. The apostolic anointing upon my life destroys it.
And they had diverse destruction from hale and thunder and fire.
“The only place it did not hail was the land of Goshen, where the Israelites were”. [NIV].
It doesn’t matter. One thousand may fall on your side. Ten thousand may fall by your left. With your eyes you will see them and they will not come near you.
Everybody is struggling economically except your church. God has a way of exempting His covenant people. I mean you are a tither and Ebola comes to do what?
“I will rebuke the devourer…” the Bible says in Malachi 3:10.
Everybody in your household, your lineage, because of you is declared covered.
