Hello, this is the secret Moment with Rotimi Adedokun. Among many discount retail stores in the United States of America, ranging from Target that was created as Dayton Dry Goods Company in 1902 to Walmart that was founded on July 2, 1962, in Bentonville, Arkansas, and the older retail store whose first-day sales was $11.06 that is popularly called Macys, Amazon that was founded on July 5, 1994, came from behind and beat them all. In the same vein, many churches started in West Africa, Nigeria. Still, the Winners Chapel International that was founded in 1981, takes the lead. The Winners Chapel International that became a functional church in 1983 takes the lead among churches, Nigeria, Africa, and around the World. What is the relationship between Amazon and Winners Chapel international? Winners Chapel was founded in Nigeria by Bishop David Oyedepo while Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in the United States. Yes, I know your thought; there is no relationship because of both establishments. But one thing that I know among other that the year Cannanland was built was the same year that Amazon had shipped 20 million items to 150 countries around the globe. In December of the same year, Jeff Bezos was named Time magazine’s person of the year. The purpose of this video is to help you see what makes both founders and their organizations unstoppable. If you desire an irresistible life, ensure you watch this video to the end. I will unfold ten secrets that both organizations possess that can make you build an empire. If you are new to this channel, kindly subscribe to alert you anytime we upload a new video. If you are ready, let’s get started.
1. Sensitivity: Anything Can Communicate and Illuminate You At Any time.
Early 1990s Jeff Bezos who was once working for a qualitative hedge fund (D. E. Shaw) in New York City, stumbled on authentic information that Web usage was growing at 2,300 percent a year. This startling statistic fascinated him to think of what could be sold on the internet. After selected books as what to sell, he took a bold step drove from New York City to Seattle Washington to start Amazon that was near called Cadabra in his garage on July 5, 1994. Jeff wrote the Amazon business plan on this way to Seattle. Bishop David Oyedepo with almost the same encounter but in Africa journey to visit some of his Christian friends, unfortunately, he met their absent and he response was “all things work together for good to them that love the Lord” immediately the Holy Spirit ministered to him, “Seek a quiet place I want to speak to you.” That little but power instruction led into an 18 hours vision that gave back to Winners Chapel International today. Jeff’s sensitivity to the growing usage of the internet can easily be placed side-by-side to Bishop David Oyedepo when he met the absence of his friends. To become unstoppable, you must understand and be ready. Any information that makes world charge can flash you anytime.
2. Embark On The Journey: The Outcome of Your Choice Is The Final Of Your Life
Until you are ready for the journey of no return, you can never make the unstoppable list. Bishop David Oyedepo called it the law of TOTAL ABANDONMENT. I called it the law of no return. Those who have options will not obey the law of motion. Peter said to Jesus Christ we have left all and follow you. Bishop David Oyedepo, the architecture profession, and Jeff Bezos left his job. Those who want to be unstoppable give 101 percent. Someone asked Bishop David Oyedepo how much you have in saving before you stepped out into ministry. He replied nothing. According to him, he believed so much in the instruction Jesus gave to his disciples in Luke 10:4. He even told a friend of his who claimed to be called into ministry at the same time that God called them into full-time ministry so they could go full length. The way Bishop David Oyedepo started winners small as faith our liberation at Kwara so is Jeff began to selling books in his garage in Seattle. Both of them were lost in the visions that nothing else matters to them. Someone asked Bishop David Oyedepo what if the ministry go south; he replied I would sink with it.
3. Depart: Until You Depart You May Never Deliver
Abraham departed his father’s house to the land that God promised him and his descenders. It is the same way Jeff Bezos left New York for Seattle, and Bishop David Oyedepo departed Kwara for the Kaduna States in Nigeria. After the weekly prayer meetings began in Kwara states Bishop David Oyedepo started believing God for a place to start the Church fully. He and his wife were waiting on God for the next level of the ministry. During fasting and prayer sessions, Bishop David Oyedepo was led by the Spirit to open His Bible. As he did, Acts 22:10 draws his attention. “And I said, what shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do.” Since the first leading came the second leading to Lagos State, “Arise get down to Lagos and raise me a people.” Another voice came to him on May 4, 1994, “The harvest of Africa is now well overripe; rush in and preserve it from decadence.” By May 8, 1994, a sprinkling of the blood was performed upon a large map of Africa during a breakthrough night. By June 14, 1994, the African Gospel Invasion Project (AGIP) office was opened in Lagos. By January 15, 1995, the first set of missionaries was deployed to selected African countries. The same voice ministered to him when he got to now Cannanland when the land was without form and void, that, “This is the place.” This is the secret; those who cannot depart will not deliver.
4. Develop Systems: Without System, You Are Not Set To Launch
System form structure, structure form foundation, and foundation built an empire. Those who cannot see far, start normal but those who can start strong. Amazon started with a full and ready website with a built-in bell sound. Any order is placed on Amazon, the bell will ring, and immediately the books will be packed to be sent to the customer. On same day drop off to the post office, Jeff himself will drive down to the ship off the orders. The same system was incorporated in Winners. Every major meeting was well documented; according to the Bishop, all prophetic utterances of what God will do were well written, and all the original copies are still intact till today. Bishop Oyedepo separated the church money from him to the extent of refusing to take from church money to name his second son. He prefers to give people sachet water instead of making church money. According to Oyedepo, all toll fees ticket was present back to the church office for accounting purpose. He remits account to the accountant himself after each official trip. This seemingly simple principle has wrecked many churches. He made Winners Chapel get ready with over N500 million in 1998 when the church was about to transition from her facility in Lagos to Ota, Ogun State. The principle that Bishop Oyedepo propounded is the secret. Save that 70 percent and live on 30 percent.
5. Launch Out: Boat Sinking & Net breaking Experiences are only for those who Launch their nets.
Late Myles Munroe said the grave is the wealthiest place on earth. There you will find many movies that are not produced. Many songs that are not sung. Many business ideas that are not started, many degrees that are not achieved, and many heights are not attained. Only two people worked on water in the Bible. Jesus Christ and Peter. The big question is, what if Peter did not try? The secret is this; you can’t achieve what you don’t start, never benefits from what is not attempted, and never celebrates accomplishments that are not started. The law of launch states that action is the mother of all miracle. Those who are too fearful to start will be too little to get a reward. Jeff borrowed $300,000 from his parent and drove to Seattle as Bishop David Oyedepo moved to Kaduna as God commanded. As Seattle will never forget the impact of Jeff, so is Kaduna, Lagos, Ogun State, and Africa as a continent will always remember the impact of Bishop David Oyedepo. Fear is an enemy; cripple’s giant, silent, loud vocal, and reduces impact—those who step out of the boat of fear will walk the water. The fear of the North did not stop Bishop Oyedepo as the fear of logistics did not stop Jeff Bezos. Those who make an impact create about the outcome but fearless about launching.
6. Get Your Hands Dirty: Do The Work, Walk The Talk and Make It Work
At the inception of Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo drives church members to their nearest bus stop to quickly get back home after church services. He was the first sanctuary keepers of the church. He always goes to clean the church and pray over the seats for people to come and occupy them. Bezos, in like mind, will take the order of the customer to post office buy himself when Amazon. Sometimes, he waits on the computer waiting for the next request that might take hours to come. The work of the real founders of a vast business empire is Jack of all trade master of all. If you don’t have money to increase your overhead and get more hands to help, you have to do it yourself most of the time. The entire family is involved in ensuring the business works. Bishop David Oyedepo’s wife (Faith Oyedepo) was the secretary of the church, typing the books of Bishop David Oyedepo, just as the Jeff Bezos wife help out in the garage business. The same night of Bezos was at work in Oyedepo as both men sleepless. The work around the clock to meet the need of the vision. Bishop David Oyedepo, who taught for over 10 hours in a seminar in Winners Kaduna States, wrote one of his books over without electricity. To become unstoppable, sleepless nights and hard work with sacrifice must be your watchwords.
7. Invite People To Participate: Makes Ur Biz To Good Venture
The investment of Jeff Bezos’s stepfather and his mother in the 1994 and invitation Jeff stretched toward his some of former colleagues and friends gave birth to his first order in April 3rd1995. A book titled “Fluid Concepts and Creative Analogies.” Both men have the same Spirit of sharing their vision. Then brother David now Bishop David Oyedepo, called his friends and shared his vision and mandate to start a fellowship. Weekly teaching programs, known as Faith Liberation Hour and later formed what is called The Power House, which was including prayers and fasting among others towards the actualization of this vision and mandate. As Jeff focuses on customer satisfaction, Bishop David Oyedepo was instructed By Holy Ghost to raise people and not money, when men are raised, He will have enough money that he will ever need.
8. Pay Attention To Feedbacks: Feedbacks make vision to feed fat.
Good business doesn’t just trade on a vision; they also trade on feedbacks. After Jeff Bezos recorded the first 1000 customers on Amazon, he and his team send out mail to their customers, appreciating their business and courtesy requesting other things they would like to buy on Amazon. Those suggestions from Amazon 1000 first customers turn Amazon to the world marketplace where clothing, toys, electronics, music, and many more. When the cell fellowship of Winners Chapel was struggling Bishop, David Oyedepo bought 400 copies of Successful Home Cell by Dr. David Yonggi Cho. These books were distributed among pastors to be read and come with findings on what is needed to be done, what they need to do better, and what they are doing that must be stopped. The outcome of this exercise gave birth to incredible findings that give birth to thousands of cells that were opened. With feedbacks, vision will not produce to capacity.
9. Refuse To Be Lockdown: If You Can Be Locked Down Greatness Will Be Shutdown
As of mid-March 2020, that most business shutdowns in the United States because of COVID 19 till now that this video has been prepared, the stock of Amazon has double. People are still in their houses, ordering books and other things online. Presently, Amazon is hiring over 1,500 full-time positions ahead of the launch of her fulfillment center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Despite the lockdown in Nigeria that some government authorities are leveraging on to fight the churches for political reasons, Winners Chapel has added over 2000 new churches Nationwide to her church network. Meaning a minimum of 2000 new pastors have been hired. If you can be locked down by life’s situation, you will be lockout of greatness. To be an unstoppable force, you must be virus-proof. If circumstances of life can stop you, you cannot make the list of Jeff and Oyedepo. The secret which gives you access to a list of world Champions you have to be pandemics proof. Lastly!!!
10. Be The Solution To Your World: Be The Final Bus Stop To All.
The name Oyedepo has successfully become a household name in Africa and worldwide, most notably among ministers and non-ministers of the Gospel. In the same vein, According to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners of Fortune Magazine over 112 million prime members are strongly connected to Amazon vision with an average of 24 orders per year valued at $1400 annually per person which resulted into 19.21 billion in revenue, while an average non-prime members spend $600 with an average of 13 orders per year. As Jeff’s business keeps servicing all of Europe with a different website, and South America, over 82 percent of internet users in England accessed Amazon e-retailing services as of December 2019. In the same vein, 20,000 online worshippers invaded the social media platform of Winners Chapel, waiting to hear from Bishop David Oyedepo minister every day.
