DRAMA MINISTERS YEAR OF
” OVERFLOWING EXPANSIONS”
“OBEYING ILLOGICAL INSTRUCTIONS”
Luke 5:4-7, 11 NKJV
 When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”
 But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.”
 And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking.
 So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
May I tell you one of the greatest Secrets of Entering Into Overflowing Expansions?
Obeying Him Absolutely.
Israelites got to the bank of the Red Sea, they got frightened when they saw the host of Egypt coming behind them. Moses cried unto God, God told him to tell Israelites to GO FORWARD….into the sea? That instruction was not logical, but when Moses did exactly what the Lord told him to do, there was an expressway across the mighty sea which took the Israelites a whole of the night to cross.
When they got to the Wall of Jericho, and they were to pass through it towards their land of possessions, the Lord told them to walk round the wall once a day and come back into their tents and do this for six days, while on the seventh day, they would walk round it seven times, before shouting aloud for the wall to break down and crumble. That instruction was so illogical for people who wanted to move forward towards their destination… But when they obeyed the “foolish” instruction, the Lord God came down to play His own role and broke down the walls Himself.
There was famine in the land. A widow had exhausted all her meals except a small handful of flour and few drops of oil to make her last meal for her and her son and eat the last meal and die, because there was no food in the land. Then, Elijah came to the woman and said, she should prepare meal for him from the handful of flour, because God said her barrel of flour shall not be empty and her cruse of oil shall not dry. It was an illogical demand from the woman, except she had believed the Lord God. She obeyed the Lord, and the Lord came down to play His role in supplying her needs through out the famine time.
Now, Professional Fisherman Peter had laboured all night to catch fishes but had failed. No fish had come into the net till morning. They became frustrated and lost hope. They began to wash their net. Then, Jesus came and told Peter to cast the net into the deep, and because he had cast it all through the night and caught nothing. He told Jesus it was useless doing that, but at His word, he would do so. HE CAST DOWN HIS NET AND ENCLOSED A HUGE NUMBER OF FISHES.
They filled their boat with fishes and their boat was sinking. They had to call on the second boat to come and share in their blessing, that one also was full and began to sink. AN EMPTY BOAT BECAME FULL. A NEEDY BOAT BECAME A SOURCE OF BLESSING TO ANOTHER BOAT. All because they obeyed one illogical instructions from the Lord.
That is how to Enter into the Covenant of Overflowing Expansions in 2019 . Obeying ridiculous instructions of God. Following Him even if you do not know where He is going. Blind Faith. Raw trust. Absolute dependence on the Lord, even when what He told you to do or the promise He gives look so illogical. Never reason with Him, never argue with Him. Just do what He says if you want to Advance and move forward in Life.
What has He told you to do that you have not done? You may find it hard to Advance. However, I encourage you to understand that the major secret of Overflowing Expansions, is in LISTENING TO GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS AND OBEYING WHATEVER HE TELLS YOU TO DO, either it is logical or unreasonable.
Several years ago, He said some ridiculously illogical instructions to us and we looked so foolish to obey that instruction: we had only one bus which always carry us to ministrations all over the place, even up to far away in Kaduna. We had taken the bus to far and near. And suddenly, one morning, I heard His voice while in the bathroom:” Can you give me your Isaac?” We got to know later that the Lord wanted us to go and give the bus to another ministry. It sounded so illogical and unreasonable to us. We had no other bus and no other car to use if we obeyed. But we knew He has spoken.
So, after we had agreed. He commanded us again to take the bus for complete full servicing and repainting with the name of the ministry inscribed upon it before taking the bus to their office. We obeyed in tears.
On the day we would take the bus to the ministry, we gathered around the bus and prayed and released it. And I could not refrain myself from crying, so I left the group to a corner to weep. then, my wife and I and Bro Jeremiah Oluwagbemi took the bus to the ministry. We met them in a program where they had just prayed for a bus. The whole conference went aflame in jubilation. We came back home in public transport. I would not tell you how the Lord compensated us back, but here we are today.
Many years ago, when the Lord told us to be sending out movies to television stations for free broadcast, it looked so illogical and I reasonable to logical and reasonable senses. But we knew He had spoken, though it was so hard for us to do it, but He helped is to obey His voice.
And we continued for years doing that till many other Drama ministers joined us to populate the TV channels with edifying drama and movies. It was so illogically unreasonable and unreasonably illogical. Today the Lord has given to us all a 24 hour Christian Movie TV Channel, first of its kind in Africa, USA or Europe. The Mount Zion Television, MZTV.
As you move forward obeying His instructions in 2019,, He will bring you to the position of relevance and fulfilment.
May the Lord bless you, as you do as He says either Logical or Illogical, Reasonable or Unreasonable.
May I cease from all argument with God, may I be baptized with the spirit of Obedience to His Words and instruction, so that I might move forward fulfilling purpose.
