RCCG SOD Year 2: The Disciple and Time.


THE disciple knows that there is a time for weeping THE a time for laughing (Ecclessiastes 3:1-4). He knows that you must weep in prayer. In your prayer closet, you must pray the prayers that will bring tears to your eyes before there can be shouts of victory. The Lord constantly prayed all night. He wrestled all night so that when the day came, he could have miracles. In John 11:35 the Bible says, ‘Jesus wept.’ When did Jesus weep? just before He performed one of the greatest miracles which He performed on earth; just before He said to a man who had been dead for four days, “Lazarus, come forth!” Weeping must come before laughing. There must have been real rejoicing when Lazarus came forth.


Many don’t know that before you can have genuine salvation, we have to sorrow for our sins. In Romans 12:15, the Bible says that we are to weep with those who are weeping and rejoice with those who are rejoicing. The rejoicing may not necessarily be because of you but for someone else. The Bible says because someone has a reason to rejoice, you must rejoice with Him. Also, if someone is weeping you have the injunction of the Lord, you must weep with the fellow.

There must be the occasion to weep in prayer, an you are charging your battery getting ready for action. Then the next day when everyone is watching, miracles begin to happen. Many times, people will see us praying Just for a minute and miracles begin to happen. They don’t the fasting and prayers and preparations which had gone before. They do not see the preparations which precede the miracle. I remember when I used to be interested in bating People would say that there is a championship fight where for only 45 minutes, the boners will go home with millions of naira, perhaps N100,000 per minute. These people were only calculating the time of the fight. They were not taking into consideration how for six months, the boxer was waking up by 5.00am, jogging over six or more miles, shadow-boxing and practicing with punch-bags, enduring beatings so that his body could get used to beatings etc. But the people don’t see  that. All they see is the fight


You must charge your battery if you want you car to start immediately. There is always a time of weeping before there can be a shout of Halleluiah


In the same Ecclessiastes 3:4, the Bible says that just as there is a time to weep and a time to laugh, there is also a time for mourning and dancing. Mourning must precede the victory dance. There is no crusade or outreach that is successful unless someone had first of all done some mourning. Try and conduct a crusade without some real agony of preparation; no fasting’s, no night vigils, no rolling on the ground before the Almighty God, nothing will happen. You will make an altar call and nobody will respond. But when you have done your mourning, you get to the crusade ground and you can dance the victory dance when you see souls being saved.

No one has given birth naturally without experiencing labour pains. Even if the child is not born naturally, that is, through an operation, the doctors know the agony of the mother. But when the baby arrives, people begin to dance but there had been a preceeding mourning. The Bible says in Psalm 126:5-6.

“They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him”

If you have never prayed these kinds of prayers that bring tears to your eyes, you must do so. Maybe you want the salvation of your father and you go to God saying, “Lord save my father” God knows you are not set. It is not a prayer you can pray laughing. You must go before the Almighty God and hold him saying, “Lord, I’m not leaving you until you answer me. You must be merciful unto me, why should I go to heaven and my husband/wife goes to hell? Are you not the one who told me that if I come to the Lord Jesus Christ, I will be saved, and my family with me? Lord, what is

happening?” When you go with mourning and tears on your face, you can be sure your days of laughter are around the corner, because those who sow in tears shall reap in joy

You must talk to God seriously about all those people you don’t want to go to hell. Mourn over them in prayers.
