Supernatural wisdom

The wiser you are, the brighter you shine

This Parchment post is from a message by Bishop David Oyedepo at Shiloh 2017. Shiloh is an annual prophetic convocation of the Living Faith Church worldwide. You can find other Shiloh messages here.

New dawn is all about the opening of a new chapter on a continuous basis. New things happening without end. Massive and unexplainable turnarounds. New beginnings and new things every day. Shining brighter and brighter, more and more. (Proverbs 4:18)

As my custom is I started getting ready for Shiloh since May. I started writing my notes but some two weeks ago I told God, I am set for the word in season. It is the word in season that changes people’s times and seasons. I’m bringing you the word in season. Some of the things I’m sharing with you I have never heard them before. In this session we’ll continue our series on unlocking your new dawn heritage and I’ll be speaking about the force of wisdom. Wisdom is the know-how about accomplishing your goals. (Ecclesiastes 10:15, Proverbs 3:35).

I’m not talking about what you get from some of the best universities around the world. Thank God for that but it’s the elementary level. This one is not found in the land of the living. (Job 28:7-23)

I’m talking about a kind of wisdom that cannot be taught in any university in the world. You can’t buy it with money. It’s beyond the access of the greatest researchers. It’s available only with God, available only to the redeemed of the Lord. It takes the wisdom of God to operate in the realm of your new dawn. O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out! (Romans 11:33)

From Ecclesiastes 10:15 wisdom can be defined as the know-how about one’s goals or issues of concern. From Matthew 7:24-25 wisdom can be defined as knowing the right thing to do from the word and doing it. Wisdom is knowing the right step to take about your goals and the issues of concern and taking it. Wisdom is knowing the right turn to make from the word and making it. Knowing it is knowledge, applying it is wisdom. The applied knowledge of the truth is wisdom. (Job 28:28)

Wisdom makes the face of a man to shine. (Ecclesiastes 8:1). The wiser you are, the brighter you shine. It takes wisdom to operate in your realm of new dawn. The wiser we are the more we go from glory to glory because the wise shall inherit glory. In the name of Jesus, under this new dawn cloud, you never suffer a setback again.

Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do from the word and doing it. It’s knowing the right step to take and taking it, knowing the right turn to make and making it.

There are two sources of wisdom in scripture:

1. The spirit of wisdom. (Deuteronomy 34:9, 2Timothy 1:7. Isaiah 11:2)

2. The word of God. (2Timothy 3:15)

God’s word is God’s wisdom bank. (Psalm 19:7, Psalm 119:97-98) God’s word makes wise. You give the devil a knockout by engaging the manifold wisdom of God. (Ephesians 3:10) When you engage the wisdom of God you teach principalities lessons. They will look as helpless as poultry birds. In the name of Jesus, I declare a fresh impartation of the spirit of wisdom in your life.

God's word is God's wisdom bank. (Psalm 19:7, Psalm 119:97-98) God's word makes wise. -@DavidOyedepoMin Click To Tweet

Everybody that had the spirit of God got tied to the word. (Daniel 9:2) Every divine virtue is sustained, built and preserved by the word. (Deuteronomy 34:9, Joshua 1:8). That is how to sustain the spirit of wisdom. No matter how endowed you are if you are not tied to the word your endowment will lose value. Solomon was one of the most endowed but he was not tied to the word. Everything became vanity upon vanity. In 1Samuel 18 verses 5, 15 and 30 we see that David was advancing in wisdom.

Think of David and Joshua. Nobody walks in divine wisdom without being tied to the word. The word is God’s fountain of wisdom. (Psalm 119:97-100) What the Spirit of wisdom does, I believe, is to to facilitate access to the word relevant to the issue on hand. When you pray for wisdom He connects you to Scriptures that you must engage to deal with the issue at hand. Every true word lover ends up operating with wisdom from above. In the name of the Lord Jesus you never run out of this wisdom again.

Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do from the word and doing it. (Matthew 7:24) It’s knowing the right step to take and the right turn to make and making it. I just knew what to do about hitch-free marriage and it’s hitch-free marriage that we have through and through. It’s about knowing the right thing to do and doing it, the world’s view, the acceptable global view notwithstanding. (Isaiah 55:8-9)

There is a wisdom answer to every bugging question of life. There is a wisdom solution to any problem that anyone may ever encounter. God has the wisdom solution to it. If you lack it ask him. Yes, the man Joshua was endowed with the spirit of wisdom from above but the Bible says all the commandments of the Lord that Moses gave to him he did all and all came to pass. (Joshua 11:15, Joshua 21:45)

I decree right now that no life here shall be forever stagnated again. Instead of getting angry with someone advancing colourfully with Christ, find out what he does and do it instead of reading nonsense meaning to scriptures. When I said I would never borrow we didn’t have a congregation. So I wasn’t saying it to harass anybody. Finding what to do about any stagnated issue of your life will open it up supernaturally. (Deuteronomy 28:1-13). It is by wisdom that kings rule. (Proverbs 8:15). Diligently apply God’s commandments. Walk in His wisdom and it will take you to the topmost top in life.

Wisdom is the source of durable riches. (Proverbs 8:18). All of the blessings that wisdom offers is what is analysed in Deuteronomy 28. I see an army of global citizens rise from here. The countries you’re trying to go, they will come for you. They will apply to understudy you and to understudy your business. Walking in wisdom makes life pleasant, pleasurable and pressure-free. (Proverbs 3:17) I declare your access to this wisdom fountain in the name of Jesus.

Keep putting the word to work with delight. You are sowing seeds of undeniable liftings into your future. Let the word discipline your steps, your thoughts, your words. Let the word discipline every aspect of your life and watch the outcome.

Wisdom is in degrees. (Luke 2:52) Jesus increased. If any man thinks he knows anything he does not yet know as he ought to know. (1Corinthians 8:2). As you increase in wisdom your status is enhanced. (Matthew 11:19). Wisdom is the heritage of our children. We have the redemptive capacity to operate on Jesus’ wavelength of wisdom. (1Corinthians 2:16) What the spirit of wisdom does is to help facilitate the connectivity of scriptures towards the delivery of your desired goals.

I knew what to do from the word to do a financially stress-free life and I went into it, doing it with delight. I don’t think about money and I’ve never prayed for money. My windows have never been shut once. Do it correctly according to the guiding rules. Don’t just do it because you have to do it. Do it with understanding of what is in it. On the wisdom for living in good health, I know you can’t be speaking chaff and live in good health. And what is wisdom? It’s knowing the right thing to do and doing it. In the name of Jesus every concern returns with you as a testimony.

Keep putting the word to work with delight. You are sowing seeds of undeniable liftings into your future. Click To Tweet

Rest is not in crying or weeping. He says Come unto me and learn of me. (Matthew 11:28-29) Stop bragging about what you know. You need to know something more to get to another place. You want rest? Come and know the way. (Isaiah 59:8) You need to know by learning the way to your desired rest. When you understand what to do from God’s word you won’t call your wife a fool. You are one flesh. So if you call her a fool then you are Mr Fool. If you call her a goat you are the he-goat and she is the she-goat. When you know that, your mouth will be disciplined. Whatever you call her that’s what you are. Woman, whatever you call your husband that’s what you are.

After going through a few things as directed by the Lord I came out with a verdict: wherever the gospel takes a man that’s where I’m going. I was just given access to virtues that show a man what to do to scale the utmost heights in ministry and I wasn’t doing ministry as participating in ministry, I was leading in ministry. Remember there hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. (1Corinthians 10:13). And where’s the way? It’s in the word. Jesus is the word. (John 14:6). The word holds the way out of the challenges of your world. We’re not talking about common sense, we’re talking about heaven sense. (Isaiah 34:16).

We need to get to this point where we engage the ways of God out of our challenges in life. If there is anything you must take by force it’s your healing. If you don’t take it by force you won’t get it. (Mark 10:48, Mark 2:4). You have been held down by forces you have to break through by force. You see the woman with the issue of blood? She determined to touch Jesus by force. Healing never comes cheap. (Matthew 11:12). Your portion can only be taken by force particularly your healing. (Luke 11:21-22). You have to stand up to the challenge. Now, that is God’s wisdom for your healing. Stop sleeping with sickness. Shake your foot from the dust. (Isaiah 52:2). Every healing in scriptures came through by force. Stop nursing sickness, it will keep establishing its throne. My wife said she had miscarriage. I said “It cannot happen, can I have my food, please?” Don’t let the devil sit on you. You are too loaded for that.

From today no devil takes you for a ride anymore. Somebody is walking violently out of that sickness! Somebody is breaking off the yoke tonight! (Deuteronomy 7:14) The yoke of barreness is broken. Every time you see a dog give birth it is an evidence that barrenness cannot be your portion. You have much more value than all the animals in the world. You just need faith in the word of God, you don’t need anything else. There was nothing physiological about the birth of Isaac. That seige of barrenness is over now! Animals can’t have the right to give birth and then you’re barren; you’re God’s number one priority. You don’t need fallopian tube, you don’t need uterus. [A woman had earlier given a live testimony with her daughter who she conceived and delivered without fallopian tube and uterus]. You don’t need anyone’s sperm count. You just need faith in the word of God.

The word is God’s fountain of wisdom. What the Spirit of wisdom does is to to facilitate access to the word relevant to the issue on hand. When you pray for wisdom He connects you to Scriptures that you must engage to deal with the issue at hand.

What gave Isaac was according to that which was spoken. There was nothing physiological about the birth of Isaac. It had ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. Abraham was physically dead but he held on to what the Lord has spoken and God confirmed it. You saw the picture today of one of us who gave birth to her first child at 55 and had the second one last night at 58. It’s according to that which was spoken. (Genesis 21:2). So your healing, deliverance, fruitfulness and breakthrough are according to that which is written, in the name of Jesus.

The good news is your level is changing! The days of exclamatory dimension of wisdom are here again. (Matthew 13:54) It will be said of us in the body of Christ, “Whence hath this man this wisdom, and thesemighty works?” Some things will be coming from you that people around you will be stunned. The manifestation of the spirits of just men made perfect are here again! And I can tell you this, “Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, it hasn’t entered into the heart of any man what God will be manifesting through you from henceforth. (1Corinthians 2:9) When He said I will set you above all nations, He means you will do things that have never been seen before, the love and wisdom of God combined just changing your story.

Keep putting the word to work with delight. You are sowing seeds of undeniable liftings into your future. Let the word discipline your steps, your thoughts, your words. Let the word discipline every aspect of your life and watch the outcome. The wisdom of God demands, “When you don’t know what else to do, turn to me to show you the way out, to show you the way forward and to show you the way upward. If any man lack wisdom let him ask from God. (James 1:5-8) So we have an open ticket on the prayer altar to find the way out of our issues of concern, to break the yoke from our neck, shake our feet from the dust and walk into liberty. We have what it takes. It’s done!

Shiloh 2017 shall be a launching pad into strange dimensions of wisdom in the body of Christ and beginning with you as an individual. You will be discovering new new things. Regarding the works of your hands, God will be deepening your insights. Before Shiloh is over, God will be unveiling one thing to you that will make every day of the coming year worth more than this year.

Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears. (Job 28:22) He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. (Psalm 91:1-2) He said, “I will say of the Lord, He shall deliver me…” I will be saying it. Your protection is not sure without the words you speak. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. (Proverbs 18:21) Every statement of scripture is showing the way out of where you are to where you should be. No one here in the name of Jesus will be a victim of road accident! No one here will ever know the meaning of air crash. You want God to fulfil the number of your days? Keep serving him with delight. (Exodus 23:25) Moses the servant of God was 120 years old, his eyes were not dim and his strength was not abated. (Deuteronomy 34:7) In the name of Jesus, you never give up on serving God in your life and no devil shall be able to cut short your days.

That is the supremacy of this wisdom of the word. It’s able to deal with destruction and death. And it’s able to locate treasure in the midst of trash. It’s everything you will ever need — simply putting the word to work, believing it. Locating what to do and doing it, locating where to go and going there. Locating what turn to make and making it. He says you’re building your life on the rock. No matter the storms and the rain, your life will never come down.

God's word is able to deal with destruction and death. It's able to locate treasure in the midst of trash. -@DavidOyedepoMin Click To Tweet

This ministry has never drawn financial aid from any nation of the world. Just locate the right thing to do and be doing it. God is no respecter of persons. (Romans 10:12) Do you know Canaanland has not had a power outage since 1999? You can live above your nation for free. Where you stand in the word is what determines the outcomes of your life. It’s not where you live or the work you’re doing. You can live near White House and die of poverty. You can’t be fruitful anywhere you work if you’re not faithful. (1Corinthians 4:2)

This ministry is not debt-free, we have never been indebted — you need to be in debt before you can be debt-free. Everything here is done on cash basis. We have never paid for aircraft in two instalments. We decided to check something recently and we discovered that we pay 23,750 people every month. It’s not by prayer and fasting; it’s knowing the right thing to do and doing it, the right turn to make when you’re missing your road and making it. Can I tell you something? The cheapest way to rise above this cloud of global economic predicament which is just beginning is to hook on to covenant practice. If you don’t hook on to covenant practice you remain a victim for free. This ministry has never had one day setback in our economy. Matthew 7:24-25 is working for life.

If you’re not a tither you can be most regular attendant of this church, it won’t change your story one bit. God is not a respecter of persons. If you’re always saying you’re weak there is no faith teaching that can help you. When you say you’re strong, God comes in to confirm it. (Joel 3:10)

Deal with the devil in violent faith and he leaves you alone. You can’t be free from the devil without violent faith. This wisdom is the heritage of the sons of God. The child of a goat has the wisdom of a goat, the child of a dog has the wisdom of a dog, the child of man has the natural wisdom of a man, so the child of God has the wisdom of God. That’s where the journey to this realm of wisdom begins.


Life takes on a whole new meaning when you become a member of God’s family through faith in Jesus Christ. If you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, or if you want to rededicate your life to Him, please pray this prayer with the whole of your heart: “Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Saviour. I want to serve you always.”
