FULAFIA PRAYER BLAST: THEY THAT WAIT_APOSTLE PHILIP CEPHAS & APOSTLE MIKE OROKPO
THEY THAT WAIT:
SECTION 1: THEY THAT WAIT IN OBEDIENCE_Apostle Philip Cephas
Being obedient to God’s voice and allowing God to move in our lives in HIS time is critical to our fight.
If a commander is setting ranks and preparing a battle plan and one solider is commanded to do a certain thing at a certain time, but in his zealousness moves pre-maturely… will it not jeopardize the entire rank? And expose the commander’s plans before time. Will they all not lose ground?
In Matthew 20:1-16 Jesus gives a parable about a landowner who hired helpers for the harvest. He enlisted help all throughout the day according to his own discretion and promised each an extremely generous wage. When the evening came, the landowner paid the wages due to each hired help, but those that were hired early and worked all day were upset because they had been contracted and were paid the same wages as those that were hired up to the last hour of the day.
Jesus says the landowners response was to establish that it was lawful for him to do what he wills with what is his. “Do you think it evil that I do good?”
The hired help failed to recognize the generosity of the landowner. For he paid the first helpers a very generous wage, and it was no injustice that he did the same with the last. His decision was an act of mercy.
Jesus ends the parable by summarizing…”many are called, but few are chosen“.

An AMAZING prophetic session with Apostle Philip Cephas where the dictactes of God’s heart was poured out to the church in FULFIA.
Although He hears us, He doesn’t always give the response we expect or the answer on our timetable. I prayed twelve years for my son to return to the Lord. Every day, I prayed, believing God heard and would answer. My sovereign God used those twelve years to work in my son’s heart and bring him back into the fold. In a human’s eyes, twelve years seem an awfully long time to wait. In God’s eyes, it is a breath (2 Peter 3:8). His time is not our time.
When waiting on God to answer prayers, we must believe God will answer. Unbelief is the biggest obstacle to overcome in praying and waiting. “But when you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. People like that should not expect to receive anything from the Lord” (James 1:6-7).
While waiting on God to answer prayers, take stock of your blessings. Are you breathing? Then, rejoice in life! Do you see the blue sky or even a cloudy one? Thank God for the ability to see. Can you hear the sound of the wind blowing through the trees or a child laughing? Praise God for hearing! Turn the wait into a treasure hunt for the blessings that we often take for granted. For remembrance, keep a prayer journal, listing all your prayers with the date of request. Frequently lift up the requests to God, and record the date you received an answer.
Never forget that answers come in God’s time — not ours. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” God has promised His own a hopeful future. Rest in God’s faithfulness. He will answer you.

- Isaiah 40:31 King James Version (KJV)
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
King James Version (KJV)
Jerome, one of the early Christians, said, “Ignorance of the Bible means ignorance of Christ.” Job once said, “I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.” Jeremiah said, “Thy words were found and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart.” To read the Bible one needs a “quiet time.” Christian students often ask, “How do you maintain your spiritual high? What do you do on a daily basis?” I tell them about my “quiet time.” Some days it is in the early, sometimes late-morning, sometimes evening. Without it, my Christian life would be a wilderness. Isaiah said, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31). So gain the strength of eagles, as the prophet suggested. Set a time each day when you can spend a few minutes alone with God.
