First Shiloh Hour of Visitation
Shiloh 2020 Day 2
Bishop David Oyedepo Introduces Pastor David Oyedepo Jnr to take the first Word segment
This first full day of Shiloh will be full of the fullness of God’s blessings. It shall be so for you.
Our inheritance is communicated and delivered through the Word (Acts 20:32). It’s through the Word we take delivery of what belongs to us in Christ.
This Hour of Visitation in the Word will result in something profound in your life.
For the first segment of the Word this morning, I will like you to be set… there will be 4 segments as our custom is and each one will deliver its contents to the full.
I will share this testimony as we start to bring in the first person that will minister. The day our first son was going to be born, I was studying Charles G Finney’s revival. I’m sure many of you have seen that book before, it’s quite a volume.

I was so engrossed in it that I forgot my wife was in the hospital and I am telling you the truth in Christ: my heart was panting for an awakening, my heart was panting for a revival.
I saw fire coming up from that man and his teachings. Then in the morning, the news arrived that God has blessed us with a male child.
I asked the Lord, “what will this child be called?”
I ask Questions, that’s why I don’t lack answers.
He said, “another warrior has come” – simple.
Another Warrior Has Come.
Nobody borne that name in our entire family lineage. Nobody has ever borne it and I had a very quick interpretation, ‘OLUWAMAKINDE’ (God has brought another warrior). It’s not in the history of our people.
By the virtue of the environment they grew, they began to pant after God and today, it’s my God given grace and privilege to have my biological seed sharing the pulpit with me. And Effectively so, Insightfully so and Impactfully so.
These are not man-made.
This child was one day old and I said, “Jesus, what will this child be called?”
What shall be the name of this Church? It’s not a name that will be coined from somewhere and you just say…yes.
I love details, I hate guess work.
I will sit down here and I will be taking notes from a child that I knew the day he was born!
Not just scribbling things but looking at light coming from those teachings.
