Word : Slumbering In the Tent of Your Father

Culled and revised from a sermon from Dr. D.K Olukoya. General Overseer of the mountain of fire and miracles ministries.
Sermon Date: Sunday, 5&12 October, 2014
@ MFM Headquarters, Lagos.

Jerimiah 48:11                                     King James Version (KJV)


Moab hath been at ease from his youth, and he hath settled on his lees, and hath not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither hath he gone into captivity: therefore his taste remained in him, and his scent is not changed
Moab is someone that came from a not to straight foundation.
Moab was born of Lot and his eldest daughter after Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed. So Moab was a product of incest and fornication; still Moab was at ease and he was not able to change.

A lot of people are from polygamous homes; foundations with Poverty, idolatry, witchcraft, drunkard father, incest, opposition, attacks.
This result that from the time they were born they have acquired a deficit.
They have been born into battle, even from the cradle.
The Truth is that you don't have to remain in the deficit

Jesus Christ was born in a manger bur he did not die there.
Many are slumbering in the house of bondage, in the house of deficit; the house of their father.
You need to get out. . . à>>>>>>>
Just like God told Abraham; Get out of your father’s house.

I decree into your life;
Recover the grace to get out in the name Jesus
Jeremiah 48:11 tells of story of Moab; Moab was stagnant, stinking, non-changing.
Moab has a history: Genesis 19:32-37

32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
37 And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.
Moab was born into deficit.

    ·      Moab Lived in Sodom of immorality;
    ·      Mother turn too salt;
    ·      Born of perversion and incest;
    ·      Father impregnate daughter.
The daughter left Sodom but the perversive wisdom of Moab still pursuit in them.
A lot of people will argue and give excuses to drinking.
You can see the evil power of alcohol.
If Lot never used to drink, there is no way anyone will get him drunk.
God has a reason of banning alcohol for his prophet.
Mark 8:22-26
22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.
23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.
26 And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.

The man of Bethsaida wants healing but he need to first get out.
 His miracle was gradual.
He needed a second touch because of the depth of his issue.
He began to see men as trees. Jesus even sent him not to go back to his town and not to tell anyone. That is the wisdom to maintain his deliverance.
Your Location is very important in life.
There are locations that resist divine intervention.
There is a connection between him and his location.
If you don't get out of some location, there are some miracles you will never experience.
Some location brings limitation.
You need to cry out for Change
The Cries in the Bible are cries of change
 Ø Cry of Jacob: Unless you bless me I will not let you go. This is a prayer to experience transformation and change.
 Ø Cry of Elisha: where is the lord God of Elijah. A cry for change.
 Ø Cry of Jesus: Lazarus come forth. A cry for change.
The bible says; when I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for Me.{Psalm 56:9}
You need make cry to the lord about your situation.
Don’t be complacent and contented with the wrong happens in your life.
The condition for revival in your life; is if there is a change.
By default most have been programmed for failure.
You must be determined that; what stop your parent must not stop you.
Hard Fact about Change
1. You either change or you harden.

2. No change is made without inconvenience.
3. Only the foolish and the dead never change their opinion.
4. If we don't change we don't grow.
5. Progress is impossible without change.
6. The only human institution which reject progress is the cemetery
7. Some people change when they see the light, other change when they feel the heat (problems)
The bible says;
Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.{Ps 119:67}

Illustration story:
My dad was working as a police officer; He has been running away from the call of God for a long time. Whenever people bring a case to the police station, he would call them, preach to them and counsel them to settle it their case out of the station. The other police officers were not happy with his way of settling issues because he was making them loose money by counselling the people that came.
One day, a truck of foodstuff was confiscated at the station and his boss gave him the key. After work that day, he went home with the key in his pocket. By the time he got to the station the following day, both the foodstuff and the truck had disappeared; the key was still in his pocket. There was trouble in his station,; his boss called him and said he was very certain that he cannot be involved in this issue; but unfortunately he  held the key to the truck. The man gave him 7 days to clears his name or else he is going to be prosecuted. My ran to the mountain and cried to God with dry fast. It was there God ask him again? Are you ready to work for me. He said; Yes ! Yes ! Yes ! By the time he got back to the station, the truck has reappeared.  He refuse to go to Bible school until he got the heat at work by being implicated. This made him to change.
8. If you don't cry out for change you will remain in chains

It is not easy to do good; change, apologize, not easy not to get angry.
Just two three minutes change in your life can bring you uncommon breakthrough.
9. Horizontal people remain what they are, vertical people keep moving. Horizontal people are people that only depend on man and vertical people connect with God.
10. When you don't cry out for Change, you register in the school of Stagnancy, then you will decay
11.When you have finished changing the you are finished for life
12. Hatred for change is the architect of decay.
13. Water its indestructible because it changes. Freezes, boil, evaporate. Without changing destruction or replacement are closed.
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.{2 Cor 3:18}
We are supposed to be changing, from glory to glory.
14. To improve requires change.

15. The changes we dread most may be our salvation.
Some find it easy to cry than change
A little change can affect your destiny
16. Some changes don’t yield result not because it’s too early but because it’s too late.

Your habits , talking much, home management,..
Improve on all your Areas of your life

And see what you would become in the nearest future.
