In Jesus mighty name we have worshipped.
Lift your voice to Him and say: Father, give me a new year present today.
Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Thank You for all You did for us last year, thank You for the ups and downs, thank You for the mountains, thank You for the valleys, Father accept our worship in Jesus’ name. In this new year my Father and my God, in the life of every one of us (those here and those listening to us all over the world) Father please do something new, do something great, do something mighty, do something glorious; at the end of everything let Your name be glorified.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen.
Let somebody shout hallelujah.
I want you to do a little bit of the carryover from the Congress;
So you will shake hands with about three people and introduced yourself to them: your Excellency, I am the Light of the world.
Your Excellency I am the salt of the earth;
Your Excellency I am the elect of God
Your Excellency I am an Ambassador of Christ.
Glory be to God.
God blessed you and you may please be seated.
Happy New Year to you all!
As usual we want to start the little part I am going to had in two parts:
One: I want to talk to those who have not yet surrender their life to Jesus and then we will come to the deeper session of it.
I want to ask you, what does happy New Year means to you?
To some people it means haa at long last I am going to become an adult, they won’t call children anymore; this year I am going to be an adult.
To some it means by the grace of God I will graduate this year.
To some it means my promotion is due this year.
To some it means whether the devil likes it or not I am getting married this year.
To some it means before this year end I will be coming forward with my children.
What does happy New Year mean to you?
There was a man, he was poor and then somebody told him if you swallow a particular kind of charm you will become very rich for seven years but after seven years you will die.
Oh, at least I will enjoy seven years!
They said he will have plenteous money and so he swallowed the charm.
So every time they said happy new, he said oh God another year is gone.
So what does happy new year mean to you?
It does not matter who you are, happy new year means one thing to all of us: we are a year closer to the end of our journey.
Whether you are young or you are old; each time they say happy new year remember you are a year closer to the end of your journey in life.
The moment a child is born, he begins the journey to the grave.
That is why they don’t say how young is your child?
What is the question they ask?
How old?
The baby has just been born but they are already talking about old age.
Whether we like it or not every one of us here this year will be a year older than we were last year – a journey; year closer to the end of our journey.
Either the journey will end by sleep which is Bible way of describing death or by rapture
1Corinthians 15 verse 51 to 53 says we will not all sleep but we will all be changed;
Some will die before Christ returns, some Christ we return and take also and whichever case the journey to the end of our life is a year closer.
Now, if your journey should come by sleep; if you should die; and I am not praying for anybody to die this year but it appointed unto man once to die;
We cannot dodge it, it is something we should face clearly, it is coming.
A day is coming according to 1Thessalonians chapter 4 verse 14 to 17, the Bible said the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout; the trumpet will sound and the died in Christ will rise first.
Those who sleep before the Lord returns, when the trumpet shall sound they will be the first to rise.
Now, in Daniel chapter 12 verse 2, the Bible says a day is coming that those who are sleeping in the dust of the earth shall awake.
In other words, those who had been buried will awake – some to everlasting life and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
I know some of you are already saying Daddy why are you discussing something so serious at the beginning of the New Year?
Let me tell you straight away: this is a serious year.
What kind of year is this?
This is not a year to joke with at all.
And I will be failing in my duty as your father if I don’t tell you this is a serious year.
My joy however as your father is that if you will hearken diligently to me your father as I take you through the scripture this year, by the time this year is ending you will be seating on the mountain top.
The Bible says when the trumpet had sound, those sleeping in the dust will arise – some to everlasting life and some to everlasting shame.
What makes the difference?
It is your choice.
In John chapter 3 from verse 16 to 19, the Bible says God so loved the world that He gave is only begotten son that whosoever believeth Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
But if you read it further down, He made it clear, those who will not accept Him will have everlasting condemnation.
The choice is yours
This is not a year you will say I will think about my salvation;
This is the year when you must decide of God urgently.
So if you are here and you have not yet given your life to Jesus, I am going to count from one to ten;
As they say in Yoruba land: pull your two ears and run forward to Jesus Christ so that He can save your souls, wash away your sins;
So if He should come this year, you will go into everlasting glory.
If you should die this year when the trumpet shall sound you will rise up into everlasting life
But if you reject Him, when the trumpet shall sound you will rise up into everlasting shame.
The choice is yours.
So if you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, I am counting now from one to ten and before I say ten run forward and come surrender your life to Jesus Christ.
I am counting now:
One, two, three,
The choice is between glory and shame – everlasting glory and everlasting shame – and you will decide for yourself by either surrendering your life to Jesus or rejecting Him.
Four, five, six,
Are you aware that Jesus is not begging you to clap for Him; He has Angels who can do the job; He is not begging you, if you want to do it, do it very well.
Seven, eight,
Today is the day of salvation, now is the accepted time.
Hurry up
Nine,
Amen.
Now, those of you who have already come and those of you who are already on the way cry to God now: please save my soul, forgive all my sins, accept me into the family and I will serve You for the rest of my life.
Go ahead cry unto Him.
Those of you on the way hurry up and cry to Him as you come: ask Him to save your soul, ask Him to become your Lord and your Saviour.
And the rest of us stretch your hands towards this people and intercede for them that the One who saved your soul will save their own souls also. Intercede for them. And those of you who are in front and those of you who are on the way hurry up; cry to God; ask Him to save your souls, ask Him to forgive your sins, ask Him to receive you into the fellowship of the family of God. Cry unto Him. He will save your soul and He will give you a brand new beginning.
Hurry up those of you on the way, I want to pray for salvation now and make sure you get here before I finished praying; just keep coming. Thank You Father.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Saviour we just want to say thank You. Thank You for Your word, thank You for these people who have come forward to surrender their lives to You, please receive them Jesus’ name; save their souls, let Your blood wash away their sins, please write their names in the Book of Life and from now on anytime them call on You answer them by fire; and anytime You return my Father and my God receive them to glory. Thank You Father.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen.
I want to rejoice with those of you who have come and those of you who are on the way, keep coming.
I want to promise you from now on I will be praying for you
And so the Counselors will give you a card to fill; fill the card very quickly, return it to them.
I need you name, your address and your prayer request.
I promise you I will be praying for you.
We will wait for you until you finish before we continue.
God bless you.
Thank You Lord
Now, open your Bibles Isaiah chapter 60, I will read from verse 1 to 3 (Isaiah chapter 60 verse 1 to 3):
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
Swimming in Glory!
Two words – Glory and Swimming
Now, swimming (I am sure you all know) means making progress inside water –
And I will take about that a little later on because God did not created man for water; when He created man, He created man for land;
He created sky for the birds and He created the rivers for fish.
So when you go to swim you have gone to an area that God did not initially create for you
But you can make progress in a realm that is not yours if you know what to do.
If I ask you now, how many of you can swim?
Raise your hand.
Very few hands
Why?
Swimming is for the fish.
I have told you this is a serious year and we are going to be talking serious things
Some of you don’t fully understand what swimming in glory is.
You will begin to understand tonight.
I will be brief tonight because we will need to pray; in fact I am sure by the time I asked you to pray by the grace of God you will even be begging me to get away so that you can pray.
What about Glory?
We have said that one before – Proverbs chapter 3 verse 35: Glory is the opposite of shame.
Everybody knows that.
But what is Glory?
Glory is intrinsically associated with light – Bright light; shinning light.
In Luke chapter 2 verse 9, the Bible says, the day Jesus Christ was born, it says lo, and the angel of the Lord came upon them and the glory of the Lord shone around them.
It is light that shines – …the glory of God shone!
In Psalm 24 verse 7 to 10, the Almighty God is called the King of glory.
And then in James chapter 1 verse 17, He is called the Father of light.
The reason they called Him King of glory is because He is Father of light – He is light.
In Ezekiel 43 verse 2, the Bible says the glory of the God of Israel came from the east…
What do you know east for?
That is where the sun rises.
…and He went on to say the earth shined with His glory.
The earth shined with is glory!
In Revelation chapter 21 verse 10 to 23, the Bible tells us that the heaven Jerusalem, the heavenly Jerusalem has the glory of God
So He does not need the sun or the moon to give it light – the glory of God did lighting it.
So, in the text we read, Isaiah chapter 60 verse 1- arise, shine, (why?) for thy light is come and glory of the Lord is rising upon thee.
Light and glory are the same thing.
Consequently, in Matthew chapter 5 verse 14 to 16, Jesus gave you a new name – one of the new names we considered last December – you are the Light of the world;
And He went on He said let your light shine.
The link between glory and light is just absolute and complete.
Now, light is useless unless it shines.
Matthew chapter 5 verse 15 says you are not supposed to hide light, you are to put it on candlestick where it will show light to the people.
I decree to someone here tonight, you will shine this year.
Well, by the time I tell you the meaning of shine maybe your amen would be that loud.
You see the opposite of light is darkness; so, to shine means to push back darkness by force.
Genesis chapter 1 verse 1 to 4: in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth; the earth was without form and void, etcetera, etcetera;
Darkness was upon the face of the deep then the Spirit of God moved and God said let there be light.
From the beginning the battle between light and darkness has been there.
In other words, shinning automatically means confrontation with darkness.
So ‘get ready to shine’ means ‘get ready to fight darkness’.
Are you ready to shine?
I cannot hear your voice.
Let me announced to you my beloveth children you have played church long enough, the battle line is drawn –
Light and darkness are going to collide.
How many of you are still light of the world raise your hand let me see?
Get ready to fight darkness;
It says in the text I read to you Isaiah chapter 60 verse 1 to 3 – when it says arise, shine, for your light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee;
He said because there will be gross darkness and get ready to deal with gross darkness;
And He said when you do that then the Gentiles, the unbelievers, will come.
Many of us have been trying to win souls by mere talk; hmm hmm, they will come when they see how well you can deal with darkness.
Light has no use unless it shines
Nobody wants to switch on the light during day time but when darkness comes you will bring in light.
Consider David – in 1Samuel chapter 16 verse 11 to 13 – that young boy was brought from the field and they pour oil on his head and say hey you are now the king.
He was rejoicing.
But it was not long after that in 1Samuel 17 verse 34 to 37 when lions began to come and bear began to come and goliath began to appear;
And then when you read 1Samuel chapter 22 verse 1 to 2, when they saw the light of David shinning and he was in the cave of Adullam, everybody who needed help came to him
I say it one more time, you will shine this year.
Shinning means you are going to fight darkness.
You want to swim in glory!
Amen!
You will fight lions;
You will fight bears;
You will fights goliath.
But the beautiful thing is the fight you are going to fight is a good fight.
Why is it a good fight?
Because you have even won before you begin the fighting.
Let me hear somebody shout hallelujah.
In 2Timothy chapter 4 verse 7, Paul said, I have fought a good fight.
A good fight is the fight you win.
And I am looking at winners now.
I thought I will hear amen.
The fight is loaded in your favour.
Why?
Because light has never lost to darkness – never!
The Bible says in John chapter 1 verse 4 to 5, it was talking about Jesus Christ, in Him was life and the Life was the light of men and the light shines in darkness.
What is the result?
Darkness cannot overcome it.
Lift your hands to the Almighty God and say: from now on I will not run from the devil.
Say it as if you mean it.
You are going to fight and you are going to win.
Romans chapter 8 verse 35 to 39 made it clear you are already more than a conqueror; you are already more than a conqueror.
The only one condition to winning is that you must not turn your back to the enemy.
Never turn your back again to the enemy.
Luke chapter 9 verse 62, Jesus made it clear, anyone who laid is hand on the plow and look back is not fit for the kingdom.
Now, by the grace of God that I serve before the end of this year, one of your prayers will be God send the lions, send the bear, and wherever goliath is hiding bring him out.
One of my friends, an elder, somewhere here on the altar; when he was younger he was in Ilorin, when he wakes up in the morning, he prays: all those sick people that the Doctors say they cannot heal send them to me that I can pray for them because these people they need signs and wonders, send them to me.
That is the kind of Christian you are going to become.
Let me hear your amen.
Now, I am going to talk briefly now about swimming and then you will pray.
I am just laying foundation today; next month we will begin to get into deeper waters.
Thank You Father.
The Lord said there is someone here today, He said before the end of this year you will begin to show the signs of the genius.
Swimming means operating successfully in a realm that is not naturally yours.
I have explained: land is for man, sky for birds, rivers for the fish
But when you are swimmer, it means you can succeed in even a realm that not yours.
I give you an example: 1Samuel 17 verse 32 to 37, when David went to king Saul and said don’t let anybody be afraid of this giant I will go and fight him.
The king said little boy this is not your realm – I say you are a little boy, Goliath is a warrior, he has been a warrior from birth
Warfare is the realm of goliath; you little boy you better go and hide under your mother covering cloth.
But David said, sorry sir, you don’t really know who you are talking to.
I am praying for someone here today, by the time you get home tonight you will be a different person.
I held a Holy Ghost rally in my native town several years ago and I spoke to them in my local language; I said as I stand before you I know what is going on in your mind.
Haa haa, is not this Dejare, the son of so and so?
We know his mother, his mother used to sell eko; we know his father
Is Dejare now a prophet!
I said to them, I say there is a saying among you elders, if you look at a corpse of yesterday with the same eyes of yesterday, there is something called Ebora, Ebora will deal with you.
By the time you get home tonight, in the Name that is above every other name, anybody who thinks it is the same fellow who came here, who went back home, is going to get into trouble.
Let me just tell you one or two story quickly, I will soon get out of your way because I know you want to pray.
You have heard it before.
We want to start a church in one of the towns here in Ogun State and they did not want anything called Christianity there.
So when we gather for the crusade they brought out masquerades; the masquerades came with their sticks and they were using their sticks to scatter the people;
Beating their drums loudly so that nobody can hear speak;
Those days there were no loud speakers;
And one little girl, one of my little children said haha I am a native of this place, I know the tradition; if a drum should break when the masquerade is dancing, the masquerade will not be alive the following year;
So, she went aside and said I command in the name of Jesus, drums break.
And one by one the drums began to break and the masquerades scattered.
In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, every drum of shame beating in your life shall break tonight.
I will tell you another story, some of you heard it before.
When I was a lecturer at the University of Lagos, I was living in Surulere and then I had some little little boys and girls following me around.
And one of them heard that the cult boys have decided that they want to burn down the book shop and at that time the book shop and the bank they were in the same building.
So, they met, those people who are my disciples;
They were saying what are we going to do now?
Oga has gone home; we do not even know his house so we can tell
And one of them said, we do not need to go and tell him
He taught us when there is trouble we should pray.
Let us pray.
So they gathered together and prayed.
And boys who wanted to burn down the book shop and something, they have already poured petrol and then some ogogoro too and so they decided to drink a little bit before night so they can do their job.
When they woke up it was already day light and then the young ones began to say to their leader what kind of leader are you; you fell at sleep on duty.
And the leader says what kind of followers are you, you did not wake me up and they began to fight.
All those who are plotting against your future, in the Name that is above every other name, they will be fighting themselves this year.
Thank You my Father.
Daddy asked me to tell someone, He said this year you will begin to see new openings.
I am talking about swimming now.
Okay
To swim involves skill.
If you just jump into the river and you do not know how to swim you will drown; so you need skill.
And to learn the skill of swimming, you need help.
In Zachariah 4 verse says it is not by power, not by might but by My Spirit saith the Lord of host.
If you get into the river and you want to swim it is not just squashing around you must know how to move your hand, how to move your feet; you have to synchronize everything.
But there is someone who is ready to teach you to swim and His name is Jesus.
Philippians 4 verse 13, I can do all things who strengthened me.
I can operate in realms that are not mine.
I have heard testimonies that make me jumped for joy
Ordinary member of the congregation being used by God to perform mighty miracles; operating in the realms well above their age
As the Lord lives, before the end of this year, when they say there is a crisis you won’t say send for the G.O, you will say bring the fellow, bring the fellow.; bring the dead; bring the blind; bring the deaf; bring the dumb; bring the lame.
So you are going to need Jesus like never before this year.
You are going to need Him like never before!
In 1Thessalonians chapter 5 verse 17 to 19, the Bible made it clear that you must pray without ceasing.
The Bible says you must not quench the spirit; this year is a year Holy Spirit you must move in the Holy Spirit.
This year is a year of fasting
Matthew 17 verse 14 to 21, Jesus Christ told His disciples there are some demons that can only move when you confront them with fasting and prayer.
2Corithians chapter 11 verse 27 says you fast often.
Several years ago, in the 1980s, I was lying down in front of my first office here, I have been fasting for more than thirty days and thirty night without food and so I was very weak and I was lying down on my mat;
And a friend came to visit me and he came he saw the first auditorium, the one by the express – 100meters by 50meters; he said what else do you want?
You already have the biggest auditorium in Africa and you are still fasting!
I laughed.
I say I have not started my journey.
I decree to somebody here today, in the Name that is above every other name, where you never thought you could reach, you will surpass it this year.
Is anybody here ready to swim?
I cannot hear you.
When you want to swim, the first thing you do is to change your dress.
If you have arrived at the river or maybe a lake or whatever you want to swim, the first thing is you take off your dress; you don’t swim with your suit on.
Hebrews 12 verse 1 says if you are going to be a successful swimmer you must lay aside every weight, and the sin which easily beset us.
You cannot swim with shoes on; you have to get rid of certain things if you want to swim.
Romans 13 verse 12 says you must put off all the works of darkness and put on the armour of light.
Ephesians chapter 4 verse 22 says you must put off the old corrupt man
You want to swim changes must come!
Colossians chapter 3 verse 8 to 9 says you must put off anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth;
You want to confront darkness; you want to cast out demons, all these immoral jokes must not even be heard from you again;
And then after you remove your jacket, remove your shirt, remove your shoes then you wear your swimming gear.
Ephesians chapter 4 from verse 24 to 25 says you put on the new man created in righteousness and true holiness, speaking the truth.
Ephesians 6:11 to 18 says you must put on the whole armour of God.
No more running from the enemy we are ready to face them because we are the light of the world and light shines in darkness and darkness cannot overcome it.
You know what?
Satan is the one on the losing end.
I will just tell you briefly
Jesus Christ said I will build my church.
Who will be built the church?
Is Jesus a liar?
Answer me
So if He said I will build something, will He do it?
He said I will build My church and the gate of hell shall not prevail.
Gates, if you ask the Bible scholars, those who know deep deep theology, stands for elders – the elders of hell
The witches, the wizard, the herbalist – they cannot prevail against the church, they can’t.
The trouble with you my beloveth children is that up till this moment all you have praying been for is Jesus give me food, Jesus give me cloth;
No, no, He wants warriors and you are going to be one of them – you are the light of the world.
I will tell you one more story and then I will let you go and pray.
During the go and fishing this year, I was in a particular town (I won’t mention the name of the town);
We wanted to start a church, we sent a small boy, little Deacon to go and start a church a there and the place where we find accommodation was next to house of a herbalist;
He did not know; he just came to town, saw a house, and rented the house.
And the herbalist soon discovered that those who were coming to him before were now going to this small boy.
What kind of non sense is this and so he decided I will deal with this boy.
So the boy went to church; locked his doors and windows;
But when he came back inside his one bedroom apartment was a hen sitting over eggs.
Those of you who are young you don’t know the meaning of that; the elder here they are already saying hey because they know what that means.
Where’s the hen come from?
Where are the eggs coming from?
Now, if you ask the elders they will tell you.
If you ever see anything like that you should run because if you bend down to pick up the hen your back will break.
But my son looked at the hen and the eggs and say haa thank You Lord for provision.
Let me hear somebody shout hallelujah.
Lord, you know I don’t have money to buy hen, I don’t have money to buy eggs and said hen welcome to my cooking pot.
Killed the hen, boiled the eggs
And the Babalawo was expecting the cry of pain, he was expecting the following morning they will carry a dead fellow out.
He saw the fellow the following morning and the boy greeted him: papa, good morning.
Babalawo surrendered his life to Jesus.
Power passes power.
How many of you are light of the world?
Rise on your feet and shout hallelujah.
These are your prayer points because it is time to pray:
Prayer point number one: I want you to praise the kind of glory with all your heart; praise the King of glory.
Prayer number two is a declaration and you are going to say: in the mighty name of Jesus I am the Light of the world, I will shine bright this year.
Prayer point number three: in the mighty name of Jesus I will destroy the hold of forces of darkness on my family this year.
Number four: in the mighty name of Jesus, every lion, every bear, every goliath, that come my way this year are dead.
Number five: in the mighty name of Jesus, I will reach the mountain top this year.
Number six: In the mighty name of Jesus my life will draw thousands away from the kingdom of Satan this year. When they see my life shinning, thousands will be drawn to the kingdom of Jesus Christ this year.
And number seven: is your own private point request.
I am going to give you thirty minutes to cry to the Almighty God because this is just the beginning of a new life for you – a life of victory, a life of glory, shinning, pushing back forces of darkness, becoming mighty warriors for the King of glory.
Yes, the altar is open and you have thirty minutes to cry to the Almighty God.
Pray to Him and declare I am going to shine; I am going to deal with forces of darkness; all those forces trying to block my way I will deal with them and they will know I am different now, no longer the fellow they used to know. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, my light will shine and all forces of darkness must bow this year. Go ahead talk to the Lord.
Thank You Father. Thank You Jesus.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
In the name of the King of glory, beginning from now you will shine; you will never run from witches again, you will never run from wizards again; if they come against you one way they will flee seven ways. Every yoke of darkness upon your family will be destroyed now. Every force trying to block your ways to joy shall be crushed. When unbelievers see miracle happening in your life, hundreds of thousands of them will flock into the kingdom. This year you will reach the top; you will be triumphant. So shall it be.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen.
Let someone shout hallelujah.
God bless you.

My Lord and my Saviour I cry to You now concerning all of Your children, beginning from right now, every garment of shame take away from us. Anything in our lives that is challenging You the Almighty, King of glory, anything in our lives that is causing people to say where is your God, remove it right now in Jesus’ name. Please Lord, replace every shame with Your glory. In the lives of every one of us tonight my Father and my God do something glorious and please Lord God Almighty, once again we are in one accord, have mercy on Nigeria.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen.
Let somebody shout hallelujah.
I want to you shake hands with three or four people and say your excellence arise and shine.
Thank you and then you may please be seated.
Isaiah 60, I am reading from verse 1 to 3 (Isaiah 60 verse 1 to 3):
1Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
I told us last month that the glory of God is light – the glory of God shone upon the people;
And as the passage is telling us, you can only arise and shine if your light is come.
So in the first few minutes that as we normally do that I want to talk to those who are yet to give their life to Jesus before we go into the miracle section of the service.
I want you to know that you cannot shine without light;
It is not possible to shine without light and you are not going to get light from Satan – it is not possible.
Satan is called the king of darkness.
Everything associated with him is darkness.
And you cannot be in darkness and expect light.
Jesus Christ is the Light.
John chapter 8 verse 12 – He said I AM the Light of the world; he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life.
Until you are following Jesus Christ hundred percent, you are in darkness and if you are in darkness you cannot shine.
The Bible tells us in Malachi chapter 4 verse 2 says Jesus Christ is the Sun of righteousness.
He is the Sun.
We Christians we are the moon; we reflect His light.
We cannot shine without Him.
It is only because we are in Christ that we too can say we are the light of the world because that is what He called us.
It is by His decree alone, the decree of the Lord Jesus Christ alone that you and I can say we are the light of the world because He said so in Matthew chapter 5 verse 14 – He decreed it – you are the light of the world.
Like the special song we sang earlier on:
He said I am the light of the world because that is what the Lord Jesus Christ called me; whatever He calls me that is what I am.
But if you are not one of His own you are not light and if you are not light you cannot shine.
Now, in Matthew chapter 4 verse 16, there was a prophecy concerning the Lord Jesus Christ: it says those who seat in darkness have seen a great light.
What is that great light?
Jesus Christ.
He says those who are in the region of the shadow of death unto them light is sprung up
Jesus brought light into the world.
And He says in Isaiah 42 verse 6 to 7, He said I AM calling you in righteousness – calling you out of darkness
He says come I will hold your hand, I will keep you; I will even turn you to a light to the gentiles.
He is beckoning to you, leave darkness and come into light;
Don’t stay in darkness, come;
He says I will hold your hand, I will keep you, I will even transform you, you too will become light.
So tonight, the choice is yours.
Do you want to stay in darkness? Or
Do you want to come to light?
There is a passage in Micah chapter 7 verse 8 –important passage: Micah chapter 7 verse 8, it says my enemies don’t rejoice against me; if I fall I shall arise; when I sit in darkness the Lord shall be light unto me.
If you die in darkness it will be your fault; it will not be because Jesus Christ as not shown you the light.
If the enemy rejoices over you, the fault is yours because the Lord is saying come, I will hold your hand;
Come, I will keep you;
Come, and let me change you to light.
And all that is involved is that you say bye-bye to Satan; bye-bye to the life of sin and come into the glorious light of Lord Jesus Christ.
And you have an opportunity to do so tonight and I am going to count from one to ten
Before I say ten, if you want to say bye-bye to darkness, you want to say bye-bye to the devil and all his ways; you want to say bye-bye to a life of sin; you want to surrender your life to Jesus Christ the light of the world; before I say ten come and stand before me and I will pray for the salvation of your soul.
I am counting now:
One, two,
The choice is yours; if you seat in darkness your enemy will rejoice over you but if you come to light, Jesus Christ will hold your hand, He will keep you and He will turn you to light.
Three
He is calling you now; come out of darkness; come into His light; be transformed into light yourself.
Four,
Today is your day of salvation; Jesus is calling you; let His blood wash away your sins and turn you to a light to the gentiles.
Five, six, seven, eight,
I will wait a little for those of you who are coming from afar but keep coming, keep coming; let the Light of the world transform your life, take you out of darkness, and bring you into His light and change you to light Himself. Keep coming, keep coming; keep coming
Eight
Thank you those of you who are clapping, your hands will never be empty.
Thank You Jesus.
Keep coming; keep coming
Nine
Okay.
Thank you.
Those of you who are still on the way keep coming but those who are already in front talk to the Almighty God and ask Him to wash you clean with His blood. Tell Him I don’t want to have anything to do with devil and all his ways anymore, please be my Lord, be my Saviour, let Your blood wash away my sins and turn me to a light to the gentiles. Cry unto Him.
And the rest of us please let us stretch our hands towards this our new brothers and sisters that the One who saved our souls will save their own souls also. Let us pray that the Almighty God will have mercy on them that His powerful blood will wash away their sins and they will become children of God from this moment onward. Pray for them brethren. Pray for them. those of you who are on the way keep coming and pray even as you come; pray that the Almighty God will have mercy on you and He will save your soul that He will wash you clean with His blood; that He will turn you to a child of God. Call on Him and say Lord have mercy on me, be my Saviour, be my Lord and I will serve You for the rest of my life. Thank You Jesus.
Please let us pray for them for another one minute. Those of you who are still on the way please hurry up; make sure you get here before I finish praying; you are not too late yet you can still come. Thank You Father.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
And so Saviour we want to say thank You very very much for Your word and thank You for these people who have responded to Your call; thank You because You said that whosoever will come unto You, You will no wise cast out, they have come to You now Father please receive them in Jesus’ name; have mercy on them, let Your blood wash away their sins; save their souls today; write their names in the Book of Life and please Lord anytime they call on You answer them by fire and don’t let them ever backslide. Thank You Almighty God.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen
Now, those of you who have come forward I want to rejoice with you; I want to promise from now on by the grace of God I will be praying for you.
So I am going to need your names, your address and your prayer requests.
The Counselors will give you some card to fill; fill the card very quickly and pass it back to them and we will wait for you till you finish and then we will continue.
Congratulations.
God bless you.
Thank you.
The text we read said arise and shine.
I just want to take the first word – arise.
Tonight that should be enough for tonight.
Arise!
What does it mean?
Arise means different things to different people; it is all matter of where you are and we are going to look at the various position you might be and then find out the meaning of arise for that position and then we are going to do some serious praying tonight.
Now, before I begin to explain what arise means to different people, I need to let know that the arise of Isaiah chapter 60 verse 1 is not an advice; it is not a plea;
You know I have thought you in the past that when God wants to talk you, He could talk in various forms:
He could be advising you: I set before you life and death, chose life – that is an advice.
He could be pleading with you
He could be saying why should you die O house of Israel? I have no joy, no pleasure in the death of a sinner – that is plead; He is pleading.
But the advice here is a command.
Thank God He says let there be light; it is a command not an advice and not a plea.
So God is not advising, He is not pleading, He is commanding someone here tonight and He is saying arise.
Who is that fellow?
Okay
Now, what does arise mean to someone who is dead?
To the dead, arise means come to life, resurrect.
For example, in Mark chapter 5 from verse 35 to 43: when He got into the house of Jairus He took the little girl by the hand and said little girl I say unto you arise.
What was it He was saying to that girl; she was dead, He was saying I say unto you resurrect; come back to life.
So if someone is physically dead and God says arise, He is saying come back to life.
If someone is mentally dead, completely dead mentally, totally deranged, arise is saying come back to your right mind.
Like in Mark chapter 5 verse 2 to 15 that fellow was mad, so mad and was living in the grave yard but when the Lord met him, he fell at the feet of Jesus Christ; by the time he got up from his feet he was back in his right mind.
When somebody is dead materially; dead financially, arise means come out of debt, be debt free; begin to prosper again.
Like in 2Kings chapter 4 verse 1 to 7, you know that woman who was so deeply in debt that the only thing the creditor could find valuable in her house were the children;
And when the Almighty God commanded, before that day was out, not only was all her debt paid but she never had to borrow again.
So those of you who are in serious debt – arise.
If one is dead maritally and that could mean several things:
It could mean that the marriage is over;
It could mean that the womb is dead; etcetera etcetera
Arise simply means come back again.
The Bible tells us in Romans chapter 4 verse 17 to 20 that the womb of Sarah was dead that when the One who is the Light of the world pay them a visit the womb came back to life.
If one is dead spiritually, arise could mean come out of sin, come to the Almighty God just as we have already seen.
Ephesians chapter 2 verse 1 talks about being dead in trespasses and in sins;
But basically death is symbolic of hopelessness.
Because some people we say well I am not dead physically, I am not dead financially, I am not dead spiritually; death is symbolic of hopelessness.
Job chapter 14 verse 7 to 10: Job said, it was written there is hope for a tree; if you cut it down as long as the root is still on the ground it is waiting for next rain and then it will bud again;
He said but man dies and that is the end of him.
So death is symbolic of hopelessness.
And you will find another example in John chapter 11 from verse 20 to 25, when Jesus arrived in the house of Mary and Martha, the sister of Lazarus said Lord if you had been here my brother would not have died.
In other word it is too late now, there is not hope now.
So arise to the dead therefore means attack that hopeless situation in your life; refuse to surrender to hopelessness; refuse to surrender to those who say you can never make it – that is what arise means to the dead.
I will give you an example; you have heard the story before.
An uncle of mine was an Engineer, things used to be good but things became very bad, so bad that he could not get money to buy cloth; so bad that he had to be taking the rapper of the wife to make buba and soro.
So he decided okay, rather than shame that he will rather die.
But being a funny kind of person, he said he will go to church, he will sing, he will dance so that everybody will noticed him and then he will go home and commit suicide;
But why he was in the church he heard a sermon; the preacher was talking about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and said when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego prayed that the God who will serve is able to deliver us;
They did not know how God will do it but they said it all the same.
He heard that word and said haa I don’t know how I will get out of my present predicament but I refuse to die.
The day he was sharing his testimony he had just bought fourteen cars for his workers.
He refused to die!
He arose from the dead.
Let me hear somebody lift up his or her hand and say I will arise
Say it loud and clear.
Arise to the one who is sleeping means wake up.
It is dangerous to sleep.
In 1Samuel chapter 26 verse from verse 4 to 16, the Bible tells us that king Saul slept, surrounded by mighty men of Israel; not ordinary soldiers, mighty ones, the best but they all slept too after all they were human beings.
And the enemy came, took the sword of the king and his water bottle and those who came with David said to David just one stroke and the king will be dead.
When you are sleeping no matter how strong you are, you are helpless; open to the attack of the enemy;
And if you think I have bodyguards (laughing)
You want to trust bodyguards!
They are human beings too; they do sleep.
I was sharing with my children not too long ago during our morning devotion.
I said I have just gone round the camp in the night praying and I saw one of the guards; he was not just sleeping, he was far gone.
I say if it were in the past I would have taken his touch light but now I said let him sleep after all he is human being too.
Thank God that there is a God who never sleep nor slumber.
Let me hear you shout hallelujah to Him.
In Matthew 13 verse 24 to 28, the Bible says a man went to his field, he planted some very beautify seed but when the day came and the seed begin to germinate, there were tares also.
He said, haha, I planted good seeds; where comes all these tares?
Somebody said an enemy has done this.
When you are sleeping enemy can sow!
But apart from that, apart from the dangers of sleeping, what exactly does sleep mean?
Well, Proverbs chapter 26 verse 14 tells us that when somebody is sleeping he can be rolling on his bed; he thinks he is moving but he is still on his bed.
What does sleep means?
It means motion without progress; just on the same sport; going round the circle.
You think you are moving but you are still on the same sport.
Some of us understand what that means.
For years now, 5:00am you are awake so that you are able to catch the bus going to Lagos and you go in the morning, you return in the evening and you have been doing that for years and you remain on the same sport.
Sleeping!
But the Bible says something else about sleep; you want to find that one in Isaiah 29 that is the one that is most fearful
Isaiah 29 verse 8 says a hungry man is sleeping and he had a dream and in the dream he was eating but when he wakes up he is still hungry.
He went to bed thirsty, in his dream he was drinking water and when he woke up he was as thirsty as ever before.
What does sleep mean?
It means unfulfilled dreams.
When you have dreams, beautiful dreams but they never come through that is what sleep stands for.
I know a student when I was at the University of Lagos as a lecturer; he came in to study Engineering;
After years when he could not go beyond year one, they asked him to withdraw and so he changed to Architecture.
After years they asked him to withdraw then he changed to Fine Art – he said drawing is drawing.
He never graduated.
Unfulfilled dreams – that is sleep.
Some of us are sleeping
But will you lift your hands to the Almighty God and say: in the mighty name of Jesus I will arise.
And then arise means something different to the one who is seating down.
To the one who is seating down, arise means stand up.
It is not the same thing as to the one who is dead.
To the one who is dead, arise means resurrect.
To the one who is sleeping, arise means wake up.
To the one who is seating, arise means stand up.
Now, what does seating mean?
Number one: it means resting too soon.
You are complacent; you think you have arrived.
God wants to take you to the sun, you are not even on the moon yet and you are already seated.
You know the story
1Kings chapter 13 from verse 1 to 35 – is the story of a young prophet; God sent him an errand – go and deliver my message; when you finished get out of town, do not eat there, do not drink there; do not take the same root you took in when you are coming out;
He did what God asked him to do and he left.
But before he got home he decided to seat down under a juniper tree he rested before he got home.
That is where the older prophet met him, took him back to go and eat and drink; only to prophesy to him that a lion will kill him
That boy never got home.
The problem with many many many Christian is that we are seated; we thought we have arrived.
Oh, I have seen it happening and happening again.
You will see a man of God doing so well for the Almighty God, the church is growing, the work of God is moving and all of a sudden he is seated.
No more prayer at night; no more Bible study; no more self sacrifice – he is seated.
Or it could even be worst still
If you read Psalm 1 verse 1, you will notice something there – it talks about the man who is blessed;
He does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly; he does not stand in the way of sinners; he does not sit in the seat of the scornful.
I just want you to look at something there: from walking to standing to seating – Retrogression
Things getting worse and worse and worse
He was walking; then he was standing; now he is seating.
To be seated means you used to be a champion but now you are relic.
You use to be relevant but now you are relic.
1Samuel chapter 10 verse 1: Saul was captain.
In 1Samuel chapter 16 verse 14, he has become a relic – seated.
In Luke chapter 15 from verse 11 to 19, you find the story of the prodigal son, he used to be wealthy but things had gone down, down, down, until he was now struggling to eat with pigs but he said I will arise
I will arise means I will attack retrogression; I refuse to go down any further; I refused to stop until I reach my goal.
It is terrible thing to be seated; to be satisfied when God says He still wants to move you higher you say you want to seat down.
I can give you an example close home.
When we came here to this camp ground we have four and half acres of land then we bought more and got to about thirty;
Then we bought a little more
By the time we are about hundred acres there are people who said to me: what do you want to do with all this land – hundred acres?
And unfortunately I listened to them.
Until the Almighty God woke me up one day and said what is wrong with you?
Are they the one who called you?
Are they the one who brought you here?
Let me hear somebody say I will arise.
Thank You Father.
Daddy says I should tell somebody here today, He said it does not matter what the enemy try there will be no mourning in your family this year.
Arise to the one who is standing means jump to action.
You are not seating down now, you are standing – you are already standing – and God till say arise.
What does that mean?
It means jump to action.
1Samuel 16 from 11 to 13 – when Samuel went to the house of Jesse to appoint a king and he could not find the king among the seven boys presented;
He asked Jesse: are these all your boys?
Jesse said well there remains another in the field; that one is not king material.
He was so reluctant in referring to David
But Samuel said we will not seat down until you bring him.
So Samuel was standing when they brought in David.
And God spoke to Samuel and said this is him, anoint him.
Arise to the one who is already standing means jump into action.
Arise means therefore begin to move; begin to make progress.
Acts of the Apostles chapter 3 verse 1 to 8 – when Peter saw that man who was born lame he said to him: silver and gold I have none but what I have I give unto you – in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
And of course the man jumped up, leaping, walking and praising God.
Arise means stop being stagnant, begin to take steps
It may be more little step after another but begin to move.
2Kings chapter 7 from verse 1 to 11 tells you the story of the lepers by the gate of Samaria who said they will seat down here, we will die;
If we go the enemy territory there is a possibility we will die too but at least let us move; let us take steps; let us stop standing still.
Do you know there is a story in Matthew chapter 14 from verse 23 to 29:
You know the story when Jesus told the disciples to go to the other side and then He went to mountain top to pray and by the time He came down it was night, all the boats are gone and the disciples were in the middle of the sea in a storm
And Jesus was walking towards them, walking on water; they saw Him, they were afraid…
You know the story.
And He said don’t be afraid it is Me
And Peter said if it is You ask me to come unto You
And He said come.
The rest of the disciples were in the boat with him;
It was stormy night; there were all standing; bailing out water from the boat;
Only one fellow took a step and that was Peter.
I know some preachers have preached some terrible sermons about Peter: that he took his eyes of Jesus Christ, he began to sink
I agreed but he took a step and he walked on water – he took some steps on water;
None others did that one except the Lord Jesus Christ.
Arise to the one who is already standing means take steps to fulfill your potential.
There is a tremendous amount of potentials in you, what you can achieve is beyond your wildest imagination but you have to take the step first.
Anybody who is not willing to dear, who is not willing to take to risk, is not going to move far.
When I told my people we have found land for camp ground
They said where?
I said along Lagos-Ibadan express way.
Where exactly there?
And I described it.
They said haa!
Because this used to be the headquarters of highway robbers and they were robbing every day.
You want to take us into the jungle!
Thank God in Redeemed Christian Church of God, God rules here.
I said we are going.
Okay, you are our leader, if we you are going we will follow.
This place was so bad at that time and an acre of land was selling for one thousand naira.
Nobody wanted to buy it; things are different now.
But it is because by the grace of God will took that first step.
That is why we are where we are today.
Do I hear somebody shout I will arise.
Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
But you have to arise – take the first step and see the Almighty God in action.
To the one who is already walking, what is the meaning of arise?
Thank You Father.
It is a serious one
The Lord asks me to tell somebody, I have destroyed destroyer before I will do so again.
Thank You Daddy.
Daddy wants me to tell somebody, He said your greatest worry will turn out to be a false alarm.
Now to the one who is already walking, arise means start running.
I am already walking and you are still saying arise!
Arise means, who ask you to be walking, you should be running by now.
1Samuel 17 verse 39 to 49 – David and Goliath, they were already walking one towards another and they were talking; each one was boosting about his god.
Goliath said you this little boy you are coming against me, you are dead;
David was saying I will show that I am coming in the name of the Lord;
They were walking towards another.
But all of a sudden, David began to run.
It is the one who began to run who got the victory.
Some of you are already doing well, you are already walking but you should begin to run.
It is a special year, peculiar year, a year when you should force your way to dominion.
2Kings chapter 2, you can read it from verse 1 to 15 (2Kings 2 verse 1 to 25) tells you the story of what happen the day Elijah left and Elisha took over.
Acts chapter 8 verse 5 to 8 will give you another example of what I am taking about; tells you the story of a young man calls Philip.
He was already walking, he was already a Deacon, he was already well known but he did not stop with walking.
He ran all the way to Samaria and from the one who used to serve bread he became someone who took a whole city for the Almighty God.
Running means accelerate your promotion; do greater things; move faster.
Oh Lord God Almighty
When I gave my life to Jesus Christ I was hungry to serve God; hungry!
I was not even a good preacher; I did not know anything about preaching, all I knew was Mathematics
But something inside me told me you can start something.
So in my office at the University of Lagos during break time I gathered those who could not say no if I say come – my cleaner, my messenger, my typists;
Every one of you during break time should come to my office for prayer and Bible study.
(Laughing)
They could not say no because their lives depend on obeying.
After some time I said when you are coming tomorrow bring your friends.
Little by little that little Bible Study grew such an extent my room could not contain and we went to a classroom
And at a stage at the University of Lagos my Head of Department – the late Professor Chike Obi of blessed memory had to call me
And said Enoch, Adeboye I know you, you are good boy but you are causing trouble here – We cannot even get a typist to type for us.
I say I am only during this thing at break time!
He said if you want to do it, do it after we have closed; then you can do whatever you want.
Because the situation got to a stage that every messenger told other messenger – Bible Study is going on there; fifteen minutes only, not more.
But that was the beginning; I did not stop there;
By the grace of God one thing led to another and then to another and then we held a first congress at Ilesha Grammar School
And something led to another and we are here today.
If you are tired of making slow progress raise your hand to the Almighty God and say I will arise.
Now, to the one who is already running; what does arise mean?
Thank You Daddy.
I believe this one is my own, so I want to say yes to it before I tell you.
The Almighty God said there is someone here today, He said since I Am the One building you, every effort to pull down will fail.
Daddy says there is someone here today, He said the pain came suddenly, the Doctors have not been able to find what caused it but He asked me to tell you the pain will disappear suddenly.
We will hear your testimony soon.
To the one who is running; what does arise mean?
Arise means begin to fly.
Isaiah chapter 40 verse 31 tells us that if you wait upon the Lord you can renew your strength and then begin to mount up with wings as eagles.
You can fly you know; not like a witch.
But the Holy Spirit can move you to a height you never dreamt possible.
In Acts chapter 8 from verse 26 to 40, the Bible tells us the story of Philip –
You know he was walking when he became a Deacon and then he began to run when he took over Samaria for Christ
Then God said, hey, I still have something else for you: go to the desert and got to desert and saw somebody who was coming to Africa and said go and join yourself to the chariot;
He joined himself to the chariot; he preached the gospel to the fellow and the fellow got converted and brought the gospel to Africa by the way;
And then the man said I want to be baptize;
Why not
So Philip baptized him.
The Bible said that as soon as Philip finished the baptism the Spirit of God just caught him off and the next we knew, he landed at Azotus.
It is possible for the Holy Spirit to pick somebody who is already running and take him to a height that when he himself looked at himself he will know: only God could have done this.
And I will give you a very simple example.
Myself, whether you believe it or not I love to eat; so those who tell you that I don’t eat they are deceiving you;
Because I heard that some people carried some rumors around sometime they said the reason God is using him is because he does not eat.
If you think I don’t eat, invite me to your house;
Prepare good pounded yam and make sure the combination okro soup had plenty of bush meat and fish and chicken and whatever
And you will see a miracle in your dining room; even as mountain becomes a valley.
The first time somebody said to me that I should fast for three days and three nights, I called him a murderer.
Because I never fasted before; the only fasting I ever did was on Good Friday and that is from morning till 12noon and by 9:00am I was already checking the time to be sure it is 12:00
Then somebody said I should fast for three days and three nights; I said you want to commit murder.
But one day came and I saw one little girl giving a testimony and said she was thanking God that she fasted for seven days and seven nights without food.
I looked at her; this little thing!
Seven days and seven nights without food and not dead!
So I decided I will try three days
And I am telling you, the three days and three nights I thought I will die several times.
But today now, forty days and forty nights is not joke; but God as done it again and again.
Is anybody here who wants to go to greater heights; let me hear you shout I will arise.
What about somebody who is already flying; what does arise mean?
Thank You Father.
Let me say amen to this before I tell you because this one is definitely must be mine
Because God says there is somebody here tonight, He said you will struggle less and yet increase more.
The one who is already flying, arise means move from glory to glory.
2Corinthians chapter 3 verse 18 (somebody as already referred to tonight) said that we are beholding the Lord as in a mirror and we are change by the spirit from glory to glory.
Somewhere along the line in our series on swimming in glory, we will talk about categories of glory.
Because the Bible says there is one glory of the moon and there is another glory of the sun and then there is another glory of the stars
But stars differ from stars in glory.
So if you are already flying and people can testify that you already flying, there is still somewhere higher to go – from glory to glory.
Let us consider Peter just quickly.
Peter started by healing people by touching them – Acts chapter 3 verse 1 to 8 – he held the lame man by the hand before the man could walk.
Then he moved on to healing by shadow – Acts chapter 5 from verse 14 to 16
Then he move to healing by saying so; just by speaking – Acts chapter 9 from verse 32 to 35
Then he moved on to raising the dead by saying so – Acts chapter 9 verse 36 to 42.
The Almighty God has something higher for you.
It does not matter how high you are now, you have not seen anything yet.
If you believe that let me hear you shout hallelujah.
When I was preparing this message I remembered the testimony of one of my daughters in the mission field; she had been barren for years.
Then we went to visit a country where husband and herself are located:
Daddy I have been trusting God for the fruit of the womb for all this years.
I say, okay, this is your year.
And I am saying this is your year to somebody.
That very month she became pregnant; pregnant with a set of twins.
Three mouth into the pregnancy, about three month to the pregnancy she went for a test and they said one of the twins had died in her womb
And because it is one of this advanced countries they said well there is a way out; we will operate and take out the dead one so that the living one can survive.
She gave me a call and cry to God: these are miracles babies, how can one of them die?
And the Doctor said if they don’t operate it as soon as possible the dead one will rot and poison the other one so that both of them will die and even the mother may die too.
You are my God, with You all things are possible; these are miracle twins and I want to see the two of them alive.
Well to cut the long story short, six month later she delivered the two twins and alive and well because there is a higher level that the Almighty God can take you.
If you are not satisfy with where you are and you want to go to as high as God can ever take you, let me hear you shout I will arise.
We will be praying in a moment but I just heard somebody singing and you know when I hear this kind of singing, it is a special miracle for somebody special.
And the song in English means:
“My Jesus is performing wonders in the life of me His child”
I will sing the song in Yoruba but that is what the song means.
Jesu yi da bi ra
Jesu yi da bi ra
Laye’mi omo Re
Jesu yi n da bi ra
If you know that song, stand up and sing it.
Jesu yi da bi ra
Jesu yi da bi ra
Laye’mi omo Re
Jesu yi n da bi ra
One more time
Jesu yi da bi ra
Jesu yi da bi ra
Laye’mi omo Re
Jesu yi n da bi ra
Just once more

Jesu yi da bi ra
Jesu yi da bi ra
Laye’mi omo Re
Jesu yi n da bi ra
The Lord asked me to tell someone, He said before the end of the month that will be your song.
I want you to seat down and write down your prayer points because we want to pray now.
And if I were you tonight I will pray like never before.
Prayer points number one and of course you know that: praise Him; praise the Almighty God; praise this wonder working God.
And then number two: you will say in the name of Jesus I will arise today and God will reverse my irreversible.
When we talk of hopeless situation, if you arise in faith the irreversible will be reversed. So, in the name of Jesus I will arise today and God will reverse my irreversible.
Number three: In the name of Jesus I will arise today and God will fulfill all my dreams. I will arise from my sleep and God will fulfill all my dreams.
Number four: In the name of Jesus I will arise today and God will end stagnation in my life.
Number five: In the name of Jesus I will arise today and God will help me fulfill my potentials.
Number six: In the name of Jesus I will arise today and God will accelerate my promotion.
Number seven: In the name of Jesus I will arise today and God will take me to greater heights.
Number eight: In the name of Jesus I will arise today and God will move from glory to glory.
Number nine: In the name of Jesus I will arise today and begin to shine for the Lord.
Number ten: In the name of Jesus I will arise today and begin to swim in God’s glory.
I am going to give you some time to pray – maybe three minutes for each point – for about thirty minutes and altar is open, you can come and cry to the Lord.
You will arise and begin to shine. Arise from the dead; arise from your sleep; arise those of you who are seated; arise those of you who are standing; arise those of you who are walking; arise and let the Almighty God take over from there.
Go ahead and begin to cry to the Almighty God.
Hallelujah
Thank You Saviour
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
In the Name that is above every other name you will arise and as you do so the Almighty God will reverse your irreversible. The King of glory Himself will fulfill your dreams. Beginning from right now an end will come to your stagnation. In the name of the Almighty Jesus, the Almighty Himself will help you fulfill your potentials. He will accelerate your promotion. He will take you to greater heights. He will move you from glory to glory. You will begin to shine for the Lord. For the rest of your life you will swim in His glory.
And now my Father and my God I am committing your children from the Headquarters family into Your hands; because they are the Headquarters, the mother of all branches; I hereby decree Lord God Almighty that they will never no barrenness. You have made them the head they will never be tail. They will always be above; they will never be beneath and they won’t bury their children. Whatever they ask from You my Father and my God You will grant them double. And I pray they will continue to be fruitful. Thank You my Father.
All of you who have come tonight, this night will be a night to remember. It shall be well with you. The One who said that He has destroyed destroyer before will take care of those who try to destroy you. You shall go higher; you will never go lower. You shall go forward; you will never go backward and you too you will serve God till the end. So shall it be. This month will be a glorious month for you.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen.
Let me hear you shout hallelujah.

Shake hands with one or two people and say: your Excellency God will bless you tonight.
And then you may please be seated.
I will be taking my text from Mark chapter 5, reading from verse 25 to 34 (Mark 5:25 to 34):
25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
32 And He looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
There is someone here today whose testimony will shake the world.
We are taking about swimming in glory and we are using this particular woman as an illustration:
She had been sick for a long time, she spends everything she had and instead of getting better, she got worst.
But one day she heard about Jesus and she made up her mind that enough is enough.
May I start by decreeing to somebody here tonight, your sufferings will end tonight.
And she said certain things which we will be talking about tonight.
I will just take five points quickly because you are going to pray tonight and you will understand why very soon.
The first thing she said was: I can swim in glory –
Right now I am sick; right now I am broke; right now it looks as if there is no hope but I can swim in glory; the tie can turn for me; I can be whole again; I won’t have to spend for debtors anymore; all I need is to make contact with Jesus Christ.
That was the first she said – ‘I can’.
And I want you to turn to somebody next to you and tell him I can swim in glory.
Look at the way you said it.
I can shine;
I can conquer darkness
Why?
Isaiah chapter 60 verses 1 and 2:
The word of God says to me categorically arise and shine for your light is come and the glory of God is risen upon you.
Did God said so?
So be it.
I can conquer sickness –
Because 1Peter chapter 2 verse 24 made it clear, provision had been made for my healing – by His stripes I had been healed.
I can conquer lack and I can conquer poverty.
Why?
Because Philippians chapter 4 verse 19 says my God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
I can conquer failure
Why?
Because Philippians 4:13 says I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
I can conquer hopelessness;
It does not matter how blick situation may look around me right now, I can conquer hopelessness.
Why?
Because it is written in Colossians 1 verse 27: Christ in me the hope of Glory.
I can swim in glory.
The story was told of a hunter who went hunting and killed an eagle and then discovered after killing the eagle that there was a little eaglet left behind by the eagle – very young eaglet, the size of a chicken
So he took that eaglet, brought it home and at that moment one of his hens just hatched some chicken
So he put the eaglet among the chicken and he grew with them; eating insects on the floor, worms; whatever the chicken was eating, he was eating it too.
Then one day…, now he has grown to be a big eagle but was still living with the chicken; …one day he saw an eagle soaring overhead and he looked up: haa, what a magnificent bird!
But the mother hen said oh that is an eagle but you are a chicken.
I want you to tell the fellow next to you; say it as if you are angry: I am not a chicken; I am an eagle and I am going to fly high.
Tell the fellow next to you that I can swim in glory.
The young man, one of the young men who spoke yesterday said something: he said the brightness of a bulb is not determined by the size but by what is inside the bulb.
And he pointed out to us that it is written – greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.
The Most High lives in me, I am not a chicken, I am an eagle, I can swim in glory.
Say it loud and clear as if you mean it.
That brings me to point number two: this woman said I can be well; I can overcome sickness, I can overcome poverty, I can overcome failure, I can overcome sorrow, I can overcome all the problems surrounding me;
And then she said ‘I will’
Not just that ‘I can’ but ‘I will’.
In the Name that is above every other name your declaration that you can swim in glory will be translated into I will swim in glory.
You know you can swim in health –
According Exodus 15 verse 26, the Bible says if only you will hearken diligently to the voice of your God to observe and to do all that He commands you, He will make sure that you are not sick.
In the name of the One who called me, beginning from tonight all those who genuinely call me Daddy you won’t know sickness again.
This woman said it looks as if I have been bound now for twelve years but she said I know I can be free.
You too can be free!
Because John chapter 8 verse 32 says you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free; and the truth is Jesus;
You know Jesus!
Freedom is yours.
John chapter 8 verse 36 went further to say: whosoever the Son shall set free, shall be free indeed.
It does not matter how long you have been in bondage, in the Name of the One who reigns above all, you are free tonight in Jesus’ name.
The woman said, not only can I but I will live in abundance
And you too you will live in abundance
Because in John chapter 10 verse 10 Jesus Christ said clearly, the thief comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy but I have come that you may have life and have it more abundantly.
May I prophesy to someone here today, it does not matter what the economy of the world is saying from tonight onward you will always have more than enough.
When I was a student at the University of Lagos during my Master Degree in 1969 and that was some years ago now.
There was a young boy in the office of the Professor
In those days there was no mobile phone, all telephones are land line;
So when they phone ring and somebody wants to talk to the Professors, it is this boy (he was messenger), it is this boy who will pick the phone first and then take it to the Professor.
So whenever he picks up the phone, the fellow on the other side will say Prof, thinking it is the Professor who picked up the phone.
After sometime the boy begins to call himself Prof and we joined him and began to call him Prof.
One day he looked at us and says hey, I know you are laughing at me but I can become a Prof.
Then one day he said I will become a Prof.
By the time I left the University of Lagos ten years later, he was already studying for his PhD.
I want you to tell the fellow next to you, whether the devil likes it or not I will swim in glory.
If you believe that let me hear you shout hallelujah.
It brings me to point number three:
I told you I will be as brief as possible
This woman got to where Jesus was and found a multitude surrounding Jesus Christ and she smiled and said multitude or no multitude nobody will stop me.
Tell the fellow next to you that tonight nothing is going to stop me.
And you know the reason why?
Reason number one is that even if there is any mountain across my path I am going to shout it down.
Because in Joshua chapter 6 verse 20 there was a wall much taller than any man, saith the children of Israel will not reach their goal, they shouted it down.
If you believe that any wall that the enemy might have erected against your destiny is coming down tonight, let me hear your hallelujah.
And the reasons number two:
Thank You Father.
The Lord asks me to tell someone tonight; He said before the end of this month He will seal every hole in your pocket.
Thank You Daddy
I know it is going to be a great night
But the Lord asks me to tell someone; He said the fellow will understand; He said whatever the Doctors had called stone, I will change it to flesh.
Whoever is concern will understand.
Now the second reason why nobody can stop me or you tonight is because we have Jesus
And it is written in Philippians chapter 2 verse 9 to 11, God has given Him a name that is above every other name that at the Name of Jesus every should bow;
And then He listed it for us: of things in heaven, of things on earth and things underneath the earth.
In other words if there are forces in the air that may want to stand between you and swimming in glory, God will deal with that force tonight.
I will illustrate this with some practical examples.
Don’t worry I won’t be long.
One man came to the church years ago with his wife;
His complaint was that he just did not know what was happening; every efforts he was making was meeting with failure almost at the point of success
And so somebody says go to church and he brought the wife along.
After sometime we did not see the woman again
We asked the husband
The husband said she refused to come to church with him
So we decided to do a follow-up.
When we got there: Sister why are we not seeing you?
Because things have started to improve with the husband and I thought she should be happy.
She said, since I started attending your church I could not fly to meeting anymore at night.
Every witch, every wizard that have been flying to meetings concerning you, from tonight their wings are destroyed.
You have Jesus; He has a name that is above every other name; at His name every knee must bow –
Of things in heaven – those who fly about;
Of things on earth – some of them who don’t fly about but they connected to the devil and they maneuver here on earth
Just remember it is written heaven is My throne, the earth is My footstool – they are here on earth and they are under the feet of my Lord and He will take care of the situation.
I will give you very quick example
Some of you know the story and you even know the people concern.
There was a wedding in my village and because I ran away from home some years after when some people said they were going to use me for breakfast and for thirteen years I could not go home.
Then I met the Lord Jesus Christ and from that moment onward nobody can use me for breakfast.
But at this wedding I saw many of those people who made the threat in the church.
I was a younger man then, so I have a lot of zeal and not too much of wisdom then.
So the sermon that day was focus on them; I hit them hard
How many of you hate the devil?
Let me see you hand.
If you really hate the devil let me hear you shout hallelujah.
So I hit them hard and I left.
And then some months later, these very people went to the mother of the girl who got married and said it was your daughter who was getting married that gave that boy an opportunity to come and insult us.
They said now we have been waiting, your daughter is pregnant we will see where he will delivered unless we are not the one in-charge here on earth.
The mother became frightened and came to me.
She said see the trouble you have gotten me into.
I told mama not to worry
I said the day your daughter will deliver, all of them will fall asleep.
The day the daughter was going to deliver she came to the camp here for a programme without preparing for any delivery;
The baby came while those people were sleeping
That girl that they said she was going to die unborn came to see me some weeks ago;
She is now a Medical Doctor.
Every force on this earth that will want to stand in your way today as my Lord lives, the ground will open its mouth and swallow them.
There are some of them who are underneath the earth;
Some of them are in the sea;
Some of them are wherever they are;
It does not matter where they are;
The Bible says light shines in darkness and darkness cannot overcome it.
The Bible tells me that the wind and seas still obey Him.
I will tell you one more story then we will move from point three.
Some of you know the story too but I am telling it for the benefits of those of you who do not know it; just to let you know that nothing is going to stop you.
I told you that one day one of my daughters came to me long time ago and said Daddy a young man came to me and said thus saith the Lord you are going to be my wife.
I said congratulations
She said no
The reason I came to you is because my father told me that when I was born I was dedicated to mami-water;
And the agreement was that the day I marry, whoever I marry is going to die and I don’t want that young man to die.
Mami water!
She said yes.
I know somebody who is stronger than mami water.
We prayed a simple prayer
I did not see her for quite awhile
But the next time I saw her in a church she was breastfeeding a baby.
I looked at her and she looked at me and said Daddy do you remember me?
Haa!
How can I forget you, you are the mami water girl.
And I said where is the young man?
And then pointed at one handsome young man and mami water had not been able to kill.
Every evil force by whatever name, whether there are in the rivers, in the oceans or land, in the air that will try to hinder you from swimming in glory they will all be destroyed tonight.
That brings me to point number four:
Thank You Father.
Well, Daddy asked me to stop for awhile
He said that somebody came here tonight knowing that the only solution to his or her problem is a spare part from heaven; if you are that fellow, God has asked me to give you two minutes to ask and receive.
If you need a spare part from heaven to take care of your situation – spare hands, spare wombs, spare kidney, or spare heart; whatever spare parts that it is that you want from God, right now you can ask for it. Brand new brain, brand new legs, brand new hands, brand nee eyes, brand new hears, or you even want the entire body to be brand new; ask Him; ask Him.
Thank You Father.
Thank You Almighty God.
So shall it be.
Thank You.
Thank You Father
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
In that Name that is above every other name that which you have asked for receive it now in Jesus’ name.
That brings me to point number four:
Thank You Father.
The Lord asked me to tell someone He said relax I AM still the Most High so relax.
This woman said I can;
Number two: I will;
Three: nothing will stop me
Number four: I will touch Jesus –
Crowd or no crowd, it does not matter how many of them; she said I will touch Jesus.
The Bible said she came in the press behind; she forced her way through the crowd and touched Jesus.
May I encourage somebody here tonight that before you leave this place you will come in contact with Jesus.
I have told some of you the elders before that whether Jesus touches you or you touch Jesus the result will be the same.
If you have an electric wire that is carrying light current – whether it falls on you by accident or you are the one who grabbed it, the result will be the same.
This woman said I am not going to ask Jesus Christ to come and lay His hands on me;
I am not going to ask Him to come and do the touching;
I will do the touching myself.
How can I touch Jesus tonight?
Well, there are three major ways by which you can touch:
One: By faith
Matthew chapter 15 verse 21 to 28 – a woman came to Jesus Christ, begging for help not even for herself but for her daughter and Jesus was not paying her any attention at all.
When Jesus spoke at all, He was telling her don’t waste my time I have no miracle for you; I cannot give the bread of children to dogs;
The woman is not going away; this dog is going to take away even if it is just a crumb that will be enough.
The Bible said Jesus looked at her and said woman great is thy faith.
She touched Jesus by faith.
Several years ago, I think it was 1981 when I first became General Overseer and I was visiting the few parishes we have in Lagos then.
I went to Alagbado Parish; there was only one parish there then
And a woman came to the programme after we finished and left; because we came early and we left early.
She heard that we will be coming but she thought it was going to be an evening programme.
So when she came she saw nobody and she asked some people around: what about the man of God they said he will be coming here?
Oh he had come and gone
She fell on the ground crying, rolling – saying God now I know You don’t want me to have a child
Because she has said when living home – all I want to do is just seeing the man of God; I just want to set my eye on him; I know if I can set my eyes on him I will conceive.
Now they said he had come and gone, God I know You don’t want me to have a child.
But then they asked her why are you crying?
She told them.
They said haa, no, he is going to such and such a place tomorrow.
Really!
First thing in the morning she was in the church where I was going and as soon as the church opens she was the first inside.
And then it was time to come in, crowd began to gather and then Pastors walked in and all Pastors look alike in their suit;
She said to the people around: which of them is the man?
They said wait when he is about to preach you will know he is the one.
Finally they introduced me.
As soon as I got up, she looked at me and said God thank You.
That month she became pregnant because her faith touched God.
There is somebody today who is going to say simply because I came my problems are over.
If you are the one let me hear you say amen.
There is another way you can touch Him and that is by Prayer.
In Mark chapter 10 from verse 46 to 52, you know the story of Bartimaeus; he was seating by the highway side begging.
Something within told him, you are not created to be a beggar even though you are born blind things can change.
The Bible told us he prayed.
He did not pray the ladies and gentlemen prayer
He cried.
The crowd tried to stop him, he refused to stop.
He cried.
He kept on praying until the Almighty God answered him.
So when it is time to pray tonight, I want to beg you, don’t pray like others will pray.
Remember we are all came for various reasons.
Some came because it is regular thing to do every month;
Some came because it is a special Holy Ghost service so they will come.
But there might be one or two of us who came believing God for the final breakthrough.
So when it is time to pray tonight please pray like a warrior.
I have told a story before; some of the old ones here know.
I was on the camp ground around 1983/4 I cannot remember exactly and I was crying to God:
God I am not asking for cloth, I am not asking for a car, I am not asking for a house; I was minding my own business as a lecturer at the University when you asked me to come and serve You and I agreed.
But I need power to do Your work; I don’t want to be an ordinary Pastor, I want to excel; …
Is there anybody here tonight who will want to excel?
In the Name of the One who called me, you will begin to excel.
Alone in the night I was crying to Him;
In desperation I said God it is either You empower me or You take me home
It is as simple as that.
It is either You give me the power to this work or You just take me home.
And my prayer touched Him
And He came down and the entire camp ground shoke;
There was an earthquake that was felt as far away as Ijebu Ode – picture hung on the wall started falling down.
That’s the only earthquake we ever had in Ogun State;
And nobody will believe that it is a prayer of one man that brought it about.
Tonight somebody is going to pray and God is going to send an earthquake; an earthquake that will open every prison door in your life.
If you are the one your amen will sound different.
Thank You Father.
The Lord asked me to tell somebody who had just come out of a crisis; He asked me to tell you the crisis will not re-occur.
And then of course another way you can touch Him tonight is by Giving.
Don’t think I am about to take an offering; I am just teaching you a principle.
The Bible tells us in Mark chapter 12 verse 41 to 44 that people giving their offerings and there was a poor widow you gave all she had.
The giving touched Jesus Christ – He commented on it.
In 2Chronicle chapter 1 (that my son used when he was taking the offering) from verse 6 to 12, the Bible said Solomon gave a thousand burnt offerings and the giving touched God; God came down to pay him a visit.
I will tell you two stories quickly of people whose giving touch God – one a poor and the other not so poor.
You have heard the story of one of them at least before.
I was visiting Ilesha after I became General Overseer; my first year in General Overseer, I was visiting the little churches.
After the service as I was waiting outside for the driver to pick me up, I saw a young man who was coming towards me;
And as he was coming, he was prostrating and getting up; prostrating and getting me and when he got close to me he dropped something in my pocket and began to run.
When I saw the way he was behaving I quickly check what he dropped in pocket and it was fifty kobo notes – in those days naira was powerful – fifty kobo was a note
Those glorious days will return.
You better say amen loud and clear
So I took the money and I called him back.
What is going on?
They told us that the General Overseer is coming and I wanted to give a gift but I don’t have anything – this is all I have.
How do I give fifty kobo to such a big man?
That was why I dropped it in your pocket and started running.
I was touched.
I said son I will spend this money myself and the name of the God that called me I bless you.
I think it was the following year when I was back in the same church and I saw the same young man coming towards me smiling broadly and said Sir I am the boy who gave you fifty kobo
I said I remember.
He said now I am the Proprietor of a school.
How did it happen?
He told the story.
That is one.
There was a man; some of you may also know him.
A young man came to me years ago and said Daddy each year you preach you will say a day is coming when somebody will single handed sponsor the whole convention.
I said yes I always say so.
He said how much will it cost?
I looked at him I wanted to say don’t waste my time.
He said because I want to do it.
I said number one I don’t even know how many people will be coming this year convention.
Number two, are you sure?
I said well I can only tell you how much it cost last year; this year will be more.
At least if you can at least do that of last year God will accept your offering.
So I told him and at that time the cost was not much just about Two Hundred and Fifty million naira.
Do you think it is cheap to feed crowd for more than one week?
Then he left
And I thought he was a joker
But the following week he came back with a banker draft – so that this one cannot bounce
I did not know he went to borrow the money
If he had told me he borrowed it I won’t have taken it from him – I did not know he went to borrow the money.
But do you know what?
He became the Chairman of the bank he went to borrowed from.
I decree tonight to somebody listening to me before this night is out you will touch Jesus Christ.
That brings me to point number five so that we can give you time to pray because we are going to pray tonight.
The Bible says as soon as she touched Jesus Christ and got her miracle, Jesus turned round and said somebody touched Me.
The said how can You say somebody touched You with this kind of crowd.
He said no, no; somebody special grabs something from Me;
He said virtue had gone out of Me.
The Bible said the woman came trembling and fell at the feet of Jesus Christ to testify and said I am the one.
We are reading about this woman today because she testified.
And my point number five is that as I said earlier on there is someone here today the world will hear your testimony.
Thank You Father.
I am in a bit of a hurry but God asked me to remind you of a story and not in relation to this woman story; just in preparation for a word of knowledge coming to somebody.
Some of you have heard the story before
We were having a programme in our church in Ilorin; I was preaching and suddenly I saw a woman running out of the church and the ushers followed.
Later on at the end of the service I said what is happening; why did that woman run out?
They brought her to me and she said years before because she was losing her children she decided to go to one Aladura man so they can pray so that her children won’t die any more.
When she got there she met the wife and she told the woman why she had come.
The woman said you don’t need to bother the prophet; take this cola nut and eat it and your children won’t die anymore.
She ate the cola nut and then from that night she started flying to meeting and when they get to the meeting they will be sharing human meat.
After some time they told her it was her turn to prepare for the feast and so she donated her husband.
And a couple of years later they told her it was her turn again and they told her to go and bring one of her children
That was the stage she said the very children I was trying to protect you are asking me now to hand them over on my own
She said that was when she started running around looking for people to help to be free.
She said she had gone everywhere but now that she came to church and while the service was going on her dress cut fire;
That power that set her dress on fire she was sure that power will set her free.
And we prayed a simple prayer and she left and went home.
When she got home she went to a pit latrine, spread some paper on the ground and she was trying to excrete and a dead snake come out.
The Lord wants me to tell somebody here tonight, the enemy planted something into you but that thing is dying today.
The world will hear your testimony.
You may not know it but every testimony given on this altar is heard all over the world; even right now as we are here my children as far away as Papua New Guinea – some of you may not know where that is – they can see now and I am waving to them.
When you get to Australia – some of you have a rough idea where Australia is – when you get to Australia you have to travel six and half hour by plane to get to Papua New Guinea
As far away as they are, they are listening to you right now.
When you come to share your testimony next month the whole world will hear you.
Oh thank You Father.
The Lord asked me to tell someone (this is beautiful) He said you should be ready for hard work because many doors will open simultaneously.
And He asked me to tell someone, He said why don’t you believe Me I have already told you I will cover your nakedness.
Thank You Father.
Have been wandering at least one of the word should be for me; this one is for me.
So I want to say yes to it before I tell you.
God said what I started in you I will complete.
So in Isaiah chapter 60 from verse 1 to 3, when He says arise and shine for your light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
He says even though darkness may cover everybody else your light will be shinning so much that kings will be coming to your shining; nations will be coming to your light.
You know what God is saying?
He is saying that your testimony will bring millions into His kingdom.
If you are the one God is talking to let me hear you shout hallelujah.
I have said all that He wants me to say tonight.
I want to beg you from the bottom of my heart because this is a night like no other nights;
I cannot tell you all the details; there are things that God will tell me that I dear not share.
I have shared some things before in the past that created a problem for me.
You want me to tell you one of them?
If it is going to help your faith, I will tell you.
I was in Ilorin years ago and we are having breakfast and we have a pot in which we make tea.
I think I remember correctly there are five cups in that pot.
My wife and I, usually she is the one who will first finish her first-two cups and I will get the final one.
So I took one cup, she took one;
I took one, she took one
And I picked the pot to take the third one and the pot was empty.
I looked at her; I could not remember when she took the third one;
What happened to my tea?
And heard the voice of the Lord…, you don’t have to believe me right; …loud and clear and said son when you prayed you invited Me to join you.
Haa!
Some of you don’t know why I called Him Daddy; we have relationship that is difficult to describe.
This is a special anniversary, my Daddy is here.
He is here to celebrate with us.
Prayers prayed tonight will be answer by fire.
I want you to write down quickly your prayer points because you are going to come and pray for just thirty minutes only.
Number one: You want to praise Him that by the grace of God you are partakers of what He is doing tonight. Praise Him.
Number two: You will say Father please empower me to shine. I know I can but I need Your power please empower me to shine.
Number three: Father, please accelerate my journey to success.
Number four: Father, please erase every trace of shame in my life.
Number five: Father, the victory You have already given me let it be permanent.
Number six: Father, hear my cry tonight.
The altar is open you can come; forget everybody else; touch Him by your prayers tonight; cry to Him not as a lady, not as a gentleman but as someone who is desperate to breakthrough into glory. Come and begin to cry unto Him; praise Him. Ask for empowerment; ask Him to accelerate your journey to success; ask Him to erase every trace of shame in your life; ask Him to make your victory permanent; ask Him to hear your cry tonight.
Go ahead talk to the Almighty.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
The Almighty God will grant your request and the world will hear your testimony. So shall it be in Jesus mighty name.
Now I want you to stand up stay where you are; you will notice I gave you six prayer points, you should have guess there must be one hiding.
Somebody told you how the Holy Ghost service started but it is because God asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I said I want miracle for every member of my congregation.
Now, this time around He has asked me again, what do I want?
And then I will tell you what I had told Him later.
But I beg you for the next five minutes ask for some very very special; don’t ask for clothes, don’t ask for houses, ask for something very very special; something big, something very big.
Go ahead for the next five minutes.
Go ahead.
Thank You Father.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Right now by the grace of God I am Seventy Seven years old.
So I said to my Father: seventy seven means two seven; double perfection – that was why this year I asked you to fast for forty nine days (forty nine is seven times seven)
So I asked my Daddy all I want for Your children tonight when they come is that whatever they have asked for You will double it to them.
So as I lift my hands to the Most High, if you had asked for healing, receive health; receive the ability to heal others. If you had asked for deliverance, receive freedom; receive the power to set captives free. If you asked for a child receive a set of twins. If you had asked for end to sorrow receive joy unspeakable. If you had asked for breakthrough, receive two mighty ones. If you had asked for promotion, receive double promotion. If you had for souls, receive them in thousand. If you had asked for grace, receive abundance grace. If you had asked for anointing, receive overflowing anointing. And if you had asked for any special miracle, receive earth shaking testimonies.
In the Name of the One who called me, beginning from this moment your light will begin to shine; you will never know darkness again; anything you touch will prosper; very soon people will asking you what is your secret and your joy will never end and you will serve God till the end.
So shall it be.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
If you receive that one let me hear you shout hallelujah.

Tonight our Father and our God is a very special night for Your children and I pray Lord God Almighty that by the auction of the Holy Spirit, by the auction of the anointing that will be coming upon these children tonight, You will make them too hot for the enemy to handle. If there be any sickness, any diseases on any of these children, by the auction of the anointing let such sickness and diseases be roasted. For all these Your children my Father and my God from this moment onward let them begin to shine. And I commit all their parents, all their teachers, all those had already minister tonight either in music, in drama, in recitation, and all those who had prepared them for this particular occasion, I ask Lord God Almighty that every one of the will shine brighter.
Since we are all children in your hands my Father and my God bless every one of us mightily tonight. And all over the world where Your children are watching, keying into this service, everywhere they may be Lord God Almighty let the blessings of tonight reach out to them. Thank You for the wonderful testimonies we have heard and before tomorrow morning let there be greater ones.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen.
Let someone shout hallelujah
Shake hands with one or two people and say your Excellency I am born to shine.
And then you may please be seated.
First of all we want to talk to those who are yet to give their lives to Jesus Christ because we don’t want them to miss the blessing of tonight.
And for those people I will be talking to you from Luke chapter 7 from verse 36 to 48:
36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to meat.
37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,
38 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.
41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
Last month when we are talking about the various steps you have to take if you want to swim in glory; we mentioned specifically five major things:
Number one – you must be convinced that no doubt you can swim in glory; you can.
Number two – you must move from ‘I can’ to ‘I will’.
And then number three – you must make up your mind that nobody is going to stop you.
Then number four – I must make contact with Jesus Christ the Light.
And then number five – the world will hear my testimony.
In the story I have just read to you, you will see a woman who follow those steps.
The Bible said she was a sinner, the whole city knew her to be a sinner; even sinners called her sinner.
In Mathematics will would have called that woman sinner squared; she was a sinner among sinners.
But one day she just made up her mind I am not going to die a sinner; I am going to shine; she said I can, and then she said I will not just stop with I can, I will.
So she grabbed a box of oil – very precious; headed for where Jesus Christ was seating;
She knew everybody in the city knew, she knew they will be already talking when she was coming to Jesus: hey, what is this woman doing here?
Doesn’t she know that this is not the house for harlot?
She refused to be stopped.
And then she made contact to with Jesus Christ.
She was too bad even in her own estimation to come in from the front, so she came from behind and fell at the feet of Jesus Christ and began to weep and began to was His feet with her tears;
And the hair on her head, the very glory of a woman, she use it to wipe the feet and kissed His feet;
And the oil, precious oil that she brought she poured it on the head of the Lord Jesus Christ;
That day the Almighty God turned to her and said, Daughter, your sins which her many have forgiven you.
Today we are still reading about her.
There are some of us who are here today everybody knows us as a sinner, even we our self we know;
There some of us here today we are still lying, we are still cheating, we are still doing all manners of terrible things.
When they invited us her, we came because we have heard testimonies, miracles happened,so let us go and see if we can get miracle;
But God brought you here so that He can save your soul.
No matter how terrible your sins had been, you can still shine for God.
The worst of all sinners can still become a great saint.
This woman decided I am coming out of the darkness of my past into the light of the Almighty God;
She decide she can;
She decide that she would;
She refused to allow the option of anybody to stop her and she made contact with Jesus.
At the end of the day everybody in the gathering was focusing on the woman because the Almighty God said woman, you are forgiven.
I don’t know who you are, I don’t know what sins you have committed, I don’t know how bad you have been you can still shine for God.
And in the mighty name of Jesus Christ you will provided you will not allow the option of others to stop you; provided you will accept the invitation of Jesus Christ today who said come unto to Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.
If you will come to Him, He will receive you.
I don’t have time to go into details but I have told some of you before:
If Adeboye had been Jesus he would not have saved this present Adeboye; I knew it how bad I was, I don’t need to tell you details it does not matter; it is none of your business anyway.
But if God can save my soul and turned me into a vessel unto honour in His hands He can do the same for you but the choice is yours.
You can if you will make up your mind to say tonight we be my night I am going to Jesus even if my friends looked at me and say we thought you are a good man and you will say ehen live that one alone I want to give my life to Jesus it is none of your business; it is my live I want to surrender it to Jesus.
If you would come to Jesus tonight one day we will be hearing your testimony.
So I am going to count from one to ten and so those of you who want to surrender their lives to Jesus Christ before I say ten come and stand before me here.
It is your choice; it does not matter how bad you had been, Jesus can turn you around because His blood cleanses from all sins.
The same Jesus that saved my soul can save your soul tonight.
So I am counting now:
One, two,
I know some of you are far away so you will have to move as fast as possible.
Let Jesus see you, run into Him; He will save your soul. He said anyone who will come unto me I will no wise cast out. So if you come to Him, He will receive you, He will wash you clean with His blood and He will turn you into a brand new creature.
Three,
Thank you those of you who are clapping, you will have something to clap for before the end of this month.
Four,
O yes His blood cleanses from all sins; all you need to do is come to Him, come and make contact with Him and your story will become a testimony.
Five,
Keep clapping your hands will never withered.
Six,
Glory be to God
Keep coming, keep coming, I know He brought you here to save your soul. I rejoice with you because you have taking a wonderful decision.
Seven,
Keep coming, keep coming, keep coming. Glory be to God. Keep coming.
Eight,
Yes, I know this is your day. I know you can shine, I know you will shine, I know nothing is going to stop you now because you have decided to come in contact with the light of the world, Jesus Himself. Keep coming, keep coming.
Nine,
Thank you.
Now, those of you who are already on the way and those of you who are already in front talk to the Almighty Jesus, tell Him I have come to You save my soul, forgive all my sins and I will serve you for the rest of my life. I have chosen to come out of darkness into your marvelous light, have mercy on me, save my soul.
The rest of us please let us stretch our hands towards this our brothers and sisters and plead with God for them that God who saved our souls will save their souls also. Intercede for them brethren. Those of you on the way don’t stop just keep coming and make sure you get before I finished praying. I know you came from a long distance but keep coming. Glory be to God. Pray as you come along; ask that Jesus have mercy on you, ask Him to save your soul; ask Him to forgive all your sins; promise Him that from now on you will become His child, that you will obey Him, that you will say bye bye to darkness; welcome to light.
Keep coming, keep coming, I can still see some of you far away; about to pray now, just make sure you get here before I finish praying. Thank You Father.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Savior we want to give You all glory and honour for Your word; we want to thank You for these Your children that have come forward to surrender their lives to You; Father, please remember Your promise that whosoever will come unto You, You will no wise cast out, they have come to You now Father please receive them in Jesus’ name; let Your blood wash away their sins in Jesus’ name; save their souls; write their names in the book of life; receive them into the family of God and please Lord don’t let them ever backslide; for the rest of their lives let them serve You and anytime from now on they call on You please answer them by fire.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen.
Now I want to rejoice with you those of you who have come forward to surrender their lives today; I want to assure you that by the grace of God from now on I will be praying for you.
So I will be needing your names, your address and your prayer request.
Some Counselors will come near you and give you some cards to fill;
Fill the card very quickly and return to them and then go back to your seat.
And I promise you we will be praying for you from now.
Congratulations.
God bless you.
Thank You Lord.
Glory be to God.
Born to Shine!
Genesis 37 from verse 3 to 11
I just want to talk about Joseph even though my children had gone ahead and dramatized everything; that was a beautiful drama.
I want to talk about Born to Shine even though my children had preached everything that anyone could say – what you need to shine; what you must not do if you want to keep on shinning; etcetera, etcetera.
Genesis 37 from verse 3 to 11:
3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.
4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.
5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.
6 And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:
7 For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.
8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
10 And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
11 And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.
Everyone of you children here tonight you will be greater than your parents.
I repeat it one more time
Every child here tonight, in the Name that is above every other name, you will be greater than your parent.
Joseph was classical example of someone born to shine; even as a child it shown among his brethren.
Then he had a glimpse of his future and childishly he announced it and war began.
I pray for every child here today, every enemy of your destiny shall be subdue.
By the time we go to Genesis 37 from verse 18 to 20, his brothers saw him coming and he was bringing them food and they say hey behold the dreamer cometh let us kill him and let see what will become of his dreams.
In the name of the One who called me everyone who tries to kill your dream shall help you to fulfill it.
Because light always wins; we will be discussing that in greater details next month.
Very briefly tonight let me just add this to what you have already learnt from my wonderful children;
That it does not matter what the enemy may try if you are born to shine you will shine.
Why?
Because the counsel of shall stand.
Oh, let me decree one more time, the purpose of God for your life shall be fulfill.
In Genesis 37 from verse 23 to 28, they thrown Joseph into the pit;
And even in the pit he shown.
If the enemy throws you into the pit you will shine there.
Why?
Number one – because there is no pit so deep that is beyond the everlasting arms of God.
Deuteronomy 33 verse 27 says underneath are the everlasting arms.
It does not matter how far the enemies try to throw you, the everlasting arms are always underneath and ready to receive you.
Number two – because God knows the end from the beginning according to Acts 15 verse 18
God knew they were going to throw this boy into the pit so God went ahead and make sure that the pit was dried.
You know, when you read Psalm 23 verse 1 and 2 that says the Lord is my shepherd I shall not want; He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; and He leadeth me beside still waters
Bible scholars said He leadeth me beside still water that had been still
Before He takes you to the river to drink, He will make sure He had already still the waters.
If anybody throws you into a pit, God will see to it that the pit is dry.
He will also see to it (Number three) that they will not bury you alive.
You see, they threw him into the pit, they wanted to kill him; once he is in the pit why don’t they cover the pit?
Because the Almighty God in His infinite wisdom has make sure that only the enemies of God will be buried alive.
Numbers chapter 16 from verse 25 to 33, it is the enemies of God that were buried alive not His children.
So they threw him into the pit, the pit was dry, they did not buried him alive.
And so, as long as you are still breathing you will come out of that pit.
Why?
Because Ecclesiastes chapter 9 verse 4 says as long as you are still alive there is hope because a living dog is better than a dead lion.
They may have thrown you into a pit but you will come out tonight.
All you have to do to seal that is to shout a very big Jesus.
I have told you this story before; I don’t have time to tell you too many stories tonight but some of you never heard this before.
Among the many attempts that the devil had made to kill me even when I was very little, was one that came to my mind when I was preparing this sermon.
When I was very very young the white people were ruling us and then if a white man should kill your child with his vehicle, you will be the one who will be arrested for being careless.
So in my village they were coming to dig for gold and then one day my eldest sister and myself we were coming from the farm and coming to town center;
And all of a sudden we heard the sound of a car coming and by the time we knew what was happening; and the road was very narrow; before we knew what was happening the white man had appeared in his car and the car was coming at speed.
My eldest sister grabbed me and jumped out of the road and we landed in a pit; one of the abandoned pits where they had dug gold;
And my heart was pounding, thanking God that we escaped from the killing that would had been my lot then.
But all of a sudden we heard a sound and was the whistling of a snake; one black very poisonous snake was in the pit that we jumped into; we went to disturbed it.
My heart stopped beating – I mean I just froze; my sister herself froze
And the snake looked at us as intruders
But because we were so still, angrily he crowed out of the pit and walked away.
I am still here today by the special grace of God.
If you know you are born to shine, let me here you shout Jesus.
Then by the time you get to Genesis 39 verse 1 to 6, they sold Joseph into slavery
But when he got to the place where they sold him he began to shine and the house of Potiphar a slave became the Managing Director.
Nobody who is in Christ can be a slave.
Because the Bible says in John chapter 8 verse 32 and 36: you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free; and whomsoever the son shall set free shall be free indeed.
So if they say they have sold you into slavery let them know that it is written in Matthew chapter 6 verse 24 – no man can serve to masters.
If you are already serving Jesus Christ you are not the slave of anybody else; you have a new owner.
The Bible made is clear according to 1Corinthians chapter 6 verse 19 to 20 – He said you are no longer your own; the moment you surrender yourself to Jesus you are no longer your own, you have a new master.
And anyone who tried to keep you in slavery will have to deal with your new master and your new master has a name that is above every other name that at is name every knee must bow.
I must tell you the story, you need to hear this one; we heard the testimony several years ago.
There was a man married to a woman, very wealthy well-to-do man and the woman wanted to control him…;
Don’t look at your wife o, your wife is a Christian
…and so she went to a witch doctor and the witch doctor made for her a very special basket, germ basket, with a lead;
And told the woman just put the picture of your husband inside the basket; as long as the lead is inside the basket whatever you ask him to do that is what he is going to do.
But occasionally when you begin to see him becoming sluggish you must open the basket a little so that he can breathe otherwise he will become completely imbecile
So she was doing that.
Anytime the man begin to ask questions she will close the basket;
When he is becoming dangerous she will open the basket.
On one of the occasion she opens the basket the husband heard the gospel and gave is life to Jesus Christ.
After that the woman closed the basket, the man just would not be head bound anymore.
Suddenly the man came in and said wait a minute I am the head of this family how can I be a slave in my own house?
So the woman ran to the witch doctor and say I don’t know what happen to my husband?
She said he had given his life to Jesus, etcetera
Can you do something?
The witch doctor said a higher power has taking him away from me.
If you want a higher power to take you beyond anybody who want to hold you captive let me hear you shout Jesus.
Then they threw Joseph into prison
In Genesis chapter39 from verse 20 to 23…
Oh thank You Father.
Thank You very much Lord.
Thank You Lord.
The Lord asks me to tell someone, He said the happenings around you now are design to make your foundation deeper so that your tower can grow higher.
So they took Joseph into prison because he refused to compromise; he refused to committee adultery with the wife of his master.
But the Bible said even in prison he was put in charge.
He shown in the pit; he shown as a slave; he shown as a prisoner
If you belong to Christ nobody can keep you in prison.
Why?
If they put in prison they will come and bring you out because there is no door that can hinder the Door – you know the name of Jesus Christ is the Door.
There is no prison door that can keep the Door Himself out
And no matter how terrible the situation he will make a way out.
In John chapter 4 verse 6, He said I AM the Way.
So if there is anyone of you in any prison whatsoever, tonight you are coming out of prison.
I mean you know the story in Acts 15 from verse 25 all the way to 40 (Acts 15 verse 25 to 40), they put Paul and Silas in prison, they shown there because at night they began to sing and to praise God and God send an earthquake.
O there was a testimony of a friend of mine that some of you will remember
Just like that beautiful testimony of that girl that Jesus just appears to and began to perform all manners of miracle in her life.
There was this my friend a major General and a committed Muslim, absolutely committed;
When we were talking and we were discussing the issue of salvation, how did you get saved?
He said nobody preached to me.
He said I had a dream and in the dream I was in a room on a mat praying;
All of a sudden I saw the walls of the room closing in, closing in, closing in, until there was very little room left for me.
He said I wanted to shout for help and instead of saying help, what came out of my mouth was Jesus and suddenly the wall fell.
He said I don’t need any more preaching, somebody had brought me out of prison.
Let me hear somebody shout Jesus.
I am trying to hurry.
It was while Joseph was in prison that is promotion began.
He was a dreamer by the time he got to prison, before he left prison he had become interpreter of dreams.
For every one of you here tonight, this very day your promotion begins.
And so when the need came in the palace in Genesis chapter 41 from verse 1 to 44, a king had two dreams that he could not understand;
Haa! I pray for somebody here tonight, the one that God will use to fulfill your destiny will have a dream tonight.
So they sent for Joseph and in the palace he shown – Genesis 41 verse 1 to 44.
He had become interpreter of dreams and when the Almighty God who controls the heart of kings (Proverbs 21 verse 1);
When the One who controls the heart of kings like rivers of waters when He is on your side, He can even cause kings to bow down to you – read it in Daniel chapter 2 verse 1 to 49.
When you are born to shine, anywhere you are, even in the palace you will shine
Because to shine mean to excel, to be better than all others as in the case of Daniel
Read about him in Daniel chapter 6 from verse 1 to 3
The Bible tells us that among the three Presidents that were chosen by the king to oversee all others Daniel excels.
I am praying for every one of you particularly you children, in the mighty name of Jesus in every area of your life you will excel.
Well let me close because you know we still have a lot to do and if there is anything I jumped we will bring it in the future.
You know the greatest thing for those of us who are Christians is not only that we can shine in the pit, we can shine in slavery, we can shine in prison, we can shine in palace; the greatest thing is that we are going to shine before the King of kings – O that is the greatest thing of all.
Because a day is coming according to Matthew chapter 25…
Thank You Father.
The Lord says among the children who are her tonight are going to be many Nobel Peace Prize winners.
Thank You Daddy.
The Lord asks me to tell a woman, He said you came here tonight reluctantly because you have no child, He asked me to tell you your Samuel is coming.
Thank You Father.
Let me say amen to this one before I tell you.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you relax because your light can only grow brighter.
According to Matthew 25 verse 14 to 46, the Bible made it clear that a day is coming when the King of kings Himself will be saying to some of us well-done.
When that day comes you will be one of the people who will hear from Almighty well-done.
You see, the Bible says in Proverbs chapter 4 verse 18, He said the path of the Just is as the shining light that shines more and more and more (thank God for the prophesy)
It does not matter whether the enemies’ likes it or not our light will only grow brighter.
Daniel chapter 12 verse 3 says that they that be white shall shine and the brightness of the firmament and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.
What must I do so that I will even be shinning before the King of kings?
What you need to do is just keep on winning souls.
Because Proverbs chapter 11 verse 30 says he that winneth souls is wise.
If you are already a child of God believe me honestly you are born to shine.
You can shine, you will shine; nobody will be able to stop you, you will shine even before kings and you will shine before the King of kings.
Let me hear you shout Jesus one more time.
We want to pray for only fifteen minutes so that we can have time to do the anointing.
I want you to write down the following prayer points; you need to pray them because they are very important.
Number one: You will praise God for at least you are still alive; you have not been buried alive; so thank the Almighty God that your tomorrow will still be alright.
Number two: You are going to pray for every member of your family. You are going to say: Father, any member of my family that is in a pit right now, pull them out. Any member of my family that might still be in darkness or sin or sickness or sorrow, pull them out.
Number three: You will say Father if there is any of my family that is still in bondage set them free tonight. You are the Lord of Host, any of my family that might still be in bondage, tonight, set him or her free.
Number four: If there is any member of my family that is still in prison, any form of prison whatsoever, tonight send an earthquake and force open the prison doors.
Number five: Any one Father who will help my destiny visit them tonight so that they will send for me very soon.
Number six: Father in Your kingdom let me shine; let me shine from here all the way to glory.
Tonight if you brought little children with you please stay with them, pray your prayer where you are.
But you if you have not brought little children, you want to come to the altar to pray you are welcome.
Only fifteen minutes we want to cry to the Almighty God concerning the points we have raised.
Any member of my family in a pit pulls them out; any member of my family in bondage set them free; any member of my family in prison, send an earthquake and force open the prison doors so that they can be free; anyone who will help my destiny visit them tonight; Lord God Almighty let me keep on shinning day by day till I see You in glory and let me shine in Your kingdom.
Let us go ahead and talk to the Almighty God.
Go ahead talk to Him.
Thank You Jesus.
Glory be to Your name.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Every member of your family that may be in any form of pit shall be delivered tonight. Any member of your family no matter how far gone that might be in any form of bondage they shall be set free tonight. Any prison round you, round your family, round those who are special to you, this very night the Almighty God that I serve will send an earthquake and the prison door shall be open and before the sun rises every member of your family shall be free. All those who will help you reach your goal God will visit them tonight. You will testify before the end of this month and you will keep on shinning; even in the kingdom of God you will shine. God will make it easy for you to win souls; you will not backslide.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen.
Let me hear somebody shout a shinning hallelujah.

Okay; that is better.
Shake two or three people and tell them: I am born to win
And then you may please be seated.
As usual as we take our text from Romans chapter 8 from verse 31 to 39:
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Tonight we will be concentrating on verse 37 – ‘Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.’
Tell your neighbour I am more than a conqueror.
But before we go to the main programme tonight, we will want to, as usual, give few minutes to those who are yet to surrender their live to Jesus Christ.
We want to share with them the basic reason why they need to be born again urgently, urgently.
And that basic reason is because they need peace.
And we will be talking about three basic type of peace that they must have urgently and therefore they must surrender their live to Jesus Christ tonight.
The first kind of peace is Peace with God.
Why?
Psalm 7 verse 11 says God is angry with the wicked every day.
Every sinner is in trouble because God is angry with the wicked every day.
Proverbs chapter 16 verse 4 says the Lord made all things for Himself, ye even the wicked for the day of evil.
In other words, if you are sinner and you are not running quickly to Jesus Christ, you have been made reserved for the day of evil.
Romans 5 verse 1 says we are justified by faith and the moment we are justified by faith we have peace with God through Jesus Christ.
The moment you surrendered your life to Jesus Christ you have peace with God; the quarrel between you and God is over; until then God is angry with you on daily basis.
The second kind of peace that you must have urgently is Peace in God.
In John chapter 16 verse 33, Jesus Christ said that in this world there will be tribulation but if you are in Him you will have peace;
He said this thing I have spoken unto you that in Me ye might have peace because in the world there will be tribulations.
If a man is not in Christ and you hear all the troubles happening all over the world your heart will shake
But those of us who are in Christ when we see the worse – the rumours of wars, the floods, the hurricanes, the fire outbreaks, we look forward and know that our redemption is near – we have peace in God because we belong to Him.
In John chapter 14 verse 27, Jesus Christ Himself said peace I live with you; My peace I give you, not the kind of peace that the world gives but the peace in God is made available to us.
And the third kind of peace that you must have urgently which you can only get through Jesus Christ is called the Peace of God.
Philippians 4 verse 7 says the peace of God passes all understanding;
It is the peace that can keep your heart and mind stable no matter what is happening.
Problems right and left, a lot of bad news everywhere but if you have the peace of God you will remain stable; your blood pressure will remain normal; everything will remain cool – because the peace of God passes all understanding.
Peace with God – that settles your quarrel with God; no more anger of the Almighty God facing you on a daily basis; the Peace in God and the Peace of God
You can have all three when you surrender your life to Jesus Christ.
Because the Bible says in Romans chapter 14 verse 17 that the kingdom of God is not meat and drink but it is in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
So if you give your life to Him you will begin to enjoy peace.
It does not matter what is happening you will be at rest because you know that there is no more quarrel between you and God;
You know that He has given you peace that is ruling your heart and then you have the peace that the world cannot understand.
But as long as you refuse to surrender your life to Him the peace will elude you.
And so I am going to ask those of you who are here and have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus Christ and you want to do so;
You want to have peace with God, you want to have peace in God, you want to have the peace of God, I will ask you to come forward very quickly so that I can pray for your salvation and you can begin to enjoy the peace of God that passes all understanding.
I am going to count from one to ten I know some of you are very far away so you will have to move very very fast;
By the time I say ten if you are not already standing before me I will assume that it is either you are already saved or you have made up your mind that you don’t need the peace of God.
I am counting now:
One, two,
When you come to Jesus Christ you have come to the Prince of peace and He will make His peace available to you.
Three, four,
And those who are clapping for Jesus you will never lack peace.
Five, six, seven,
Any hand that is clap for Jesus can never withered.
Eight,
Come to Him and let your peace begin; hurry up.
I can see those of you in the old arena and I know you are a bit far from the altar but hurry up the Lord is waiting for you.
And those of you in the main new arena hurry up because we are already at the last count down.
Nine,
Thank you very much.
Now, those of you who are already in front and those of you who are on the way talk to the Almighty God now: ask Him to please save your soul, ask Him to please forgive your sins; tell God I don’t want You to be angry with me anymore I have come to surrender my life to you; please Lord God Almighty I want to be at peace with You, have mercy on me.
Cry unto Him
I have come to surrender my life unto You, I want to enjoy peace with You, I want to enjoy the peace that is in You and I want to enjoy the peace that comes from You; I want to be at peace with You and I want to be at peace in every area of my life; save my soul O Lord and I will save You for the rest of my life.
Let us stretch our hands to them those of us who remain and wish these our new brothers and sisters salvation from the Almighty God that the One who saved our souls will save their souls also. Let us go ahead and call on the Almighty God for them. And let the Counselors hurry up and attend to these people because we will soon be praying for salvation.
Anyone still on the way please hurry up, hurry up, hurry up. God bless you as you come. This is your day of salvation, don’t miss this opportunity. Thank You Father.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
My Father and my God we just want to say thank You. Thank You for Your word and thank You for these people who have responded to the altar call, they have come to you Lord please receive them in Jesus’ name; have mercy on everyone of them; save their souls; please watch them in your blood and write their names in the book of life. And please Lord God Almighty from now on let Your anger towards them cease, let them become members of Your family and whenever they call on You please answer them by fire.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen.
Those of you in front let me hear you shout hallelujah.
Good.
I want to assure you that from now on by the grace of God I will be praying for you.
So I am going to need your names, your address and your prayer request.
The Counselors will give you a card which I want you to fill very quickly and return to them and I promise you that from now on by God’s grace I will be praying for you.
God bless you.
We will wait for you till you finish before we proceed.
Thank You Lord.
Romans chapter 8 verse 37 says we are more than conquerors…
We are created equal; all men are created equal but we are not born equal.
Created equal but not born equal.
The day the baby of an Elephant is born that very day is already bigger than a rat.
Is that correct?
The Elephant is a creature of God, the rat is a creature of God, they are both created equal but they are not born equal.
The elders have a saying they said the Elephant never gives birth to a dwarf; the child of an Elephant must be like an elephant
It is a settled matter.
Meaning what?
Some people are born to win and some people are born to lose.
Romans chapter 9 you can read it from verse 10 to 15 (Romans chapter 9:10 to 15) – two children, twins, in the womb of the same mother; they were not yet born, they have not done anything – good or evil, and God had already said Jacob I love, Esau I hate.
Before they were born!
One was born to win and the other was born to lose.
Is there any winner in the house today?
If you are born to win let me hear you shout hallelujah.
Romans chapter 9 verse 17 says Pharaoh was born to lose.
He became big, he became a great king, he was considered the ruler of the whole world at time but God said at the end I Am going to drown you to show the world there is somebody called the King of kings.
Some are born to lose, some are born to win which is one of the major reasons why everybody should come to Christ because even if you are born to lose and you come to Christ the story will change
Because the Bible says in 2Corinthians 5 verse 17, if any man be in Christ old things have passed away, (how many things become new?) all things become new.
Every true child of God in this house let me hear shout hallelujah.
Now, I hope you will pay attention because this is one of those nights when destinies balance and we are not here to joke.
Born to win means born to fight
(Laughing)
I am laughing because there is an elders’ proverb that says a man spoke and the thunder rumbled and he said God as confirmed what I just said.
One more time if you are winner in the house let me hear you shout hallelujah.
You see when you read we are more than conquerors that should tell you straight away this is very serious matter.
We don’t use the word conquer when we are discussing games;
When one team plays another team and one loses and the other wins we say this team defeated this team.
You conquer in war.
The God we serve is not a civilian
Get that point clear
Exodus 15 verse 3 says the Lord is a man of war.
Psalm 24 verse 7 to 10 says He is mighty in battle.
Don’t let anybody deceive you, life is war.
From the day you are born till the day you end it is war;
The elders say that is why a new born baby cries.
As soon as he is born, he says hey, the battle begins and he keeps fighting until finally when death come and say now the battle is over.
Are you a Christian?
The Bible made it clear; 2Timothy chapter 2 verse 3 to 4 says you are chosen to be a soldier of Christ.
When you gave your life to Jesus you have just joined an army, the army of Christ.
In 1Timothy chapter 6 verse 12, says fight the good fight of faith.
We are in a war brother, we are a war sister; glory be to God we shall win.
The Bible says in 2Corinthians 10 verse 3 to 4, it says even though we live in the flesh we do not war after the flesh;
We are fighting a battle
And went on to say in verse 4 – weapons of our warfare are not carnal;
You don’t take weapons to Sunday school class, weapons is for fighting – warfare.
But like I told you I think in January or at least earlier this year – the war or the fight is fixed in our favour.
Oh before we begin to fight at all we have already won.
Oh! You saw a little bit of it tonight I was not surprised.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth; the earth was without form and void and there was darkness and then God said let there be light.
And I decree right now in the life of every one of you, from this moment onward let there be light.
And the Bible says the light shines in darkness and darkness cannot overcome it – it is impossible for darkness to overcome light; we are winners.
The Bible says if God be for us who can be against us?
We are winners
The fight is fixed in our favour.
As one of my children mentioned – one of the people who spoke – 1John chapter 4 verse 4 said ye are of God, little children…
We are little but we are of God and we have overcome them even before we begin to fight we have overcome; because greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.
I am going to ask you one more time; how many of you believe without any doubt that I am born to win?
Then shout a big hallelujah to God.
And then that means get ready to fight and I am going to mention just a few points because of another meeting I have later on.
You must fight sickness.
Do I hear amen to that?
The moment you give your life to Jesus Christ you are equipped to fight sickness and win.
Ask the Doctors they will tell you that the way God created you, He put inside your blood soldiers – I think they called them glycosides
Inside your blood they are soldiers and the assignment is to fight anything that is not created to make you healthy.
That is why when you have a cut in any part of your body, blood rushes down.
Why?
Hey!
Where they are coming from they want to flush it out and after some time when they feel they have flushed out the invaders the blood clots; it forms a shield to prevent anything from outside coming in through the wound.
That is the way God made it.
And many at times when for one reason or the other maybe the intruder came in through your mouth, maybe you ate something you should not eat and so it get into your body and it begins to do some damage;
The soldiers in your blood will rise up and begin to fight and in the process of fighting they generate heat that is when your temperature begins to rise.
You are born to win.
Ask the Doctors that under proper conditions, the body will always heal itself that when they give you drugs at all it is to quicken the fight.
Oh you will say but we heard that some people died.
Yes sir
It is appointed onto man to die; everybody will die.
Hebrew chapter 9 verse 27 says it is appointed unto man once to die.
We are all going to die that is not what we are talking about.
I mean Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead
Where is Lazarus now?
He still died.
And I am sure some of you will begin to say we heard so and so die, so and so die, mind your own business; it is you we are talking about now.
As the elders will say falala – mind your business.
You must fight any sickness that is trying to send you to early grave because the purpose of sickness is to see to it if you will allow, if they can cause you to die before your time.
Tell your neighbour I refuse to die before my time.
Do I have a choice in the matter?
Listen, Philippians chapter 1 verse 23 to 26, Paul said I found myself in a strait between two opinions; I want to go and be with the Lord which is far better but I see that there are some of you here who still need me and he said I will stay.
I assure you in the Name that is above every other name I am not living this world until I finish my assignment.
What about you?
Because he said in 2Timothy chapter 4 (the same Paul now), 2Timothy chapter 4 verse 6 to 8 he said I am ready to go
Why?
I have already fought a good fight, I have finished my course and I can now go.
You must fight sickness, don’t let sickness kill you before your time.
In 2Kings 20 verse 1 to 10, God Himself sent a prophet, true prophet to go and tell King Hezekiah: put your house in order;
Hezekiah said God I am not ready to go yet.
God told the prophet go and tell him I give him additional fifteen years.
Is there anybody here today who does not want to die before his time?
If you are such a fellow let me hear you shout hallelujah.
Some of you will remember the story of Papa Okeowo who came to see me at the age of 84
And said man of God there was a prophet, I think when he was forty years old, who prophesied to me and told me everything that will happen in my life, everything; but he said at the age of eight-four I will die.
And everything the prophet said happened and now there are two weeks to go that is why I have come to the holy land here to die here.
I said Papa do you really want to die?
He said no but the prophet said…
Ehen ehen, forget what the prophet said.
You, do you really want to die?
He said no.
I decree tonight prophecy that is contrary to your wellbeing I cancel in Jesus name.
I say Papa I know you just given your life to Jesus Christ not too long ago
He said yes
Are you ready to serve God now?
He said, Oh with all my heart
Then, who is talking about death?
He said the prophet said.
I said forget the prophet.
By the grace of God there is bigger prophet now
I said Papa you are not going anywhere.
Papa left this world just few days before he became hundred and he send to me to say tell him to please come.
Papa said thank you very much I think I want to go now.
I said no problem daddy.
It is written brother, it is written my beloveth children, according to Psalm 118 verse 17, I shall not die (say it loud and clear) but live to declare the works of God.
I read in the newspaper – was it this week or last week – a woman had been in a comma for twenty-seven years; unconscious for twenty-seven years and then she woke up.
Only God knows how many times her parent must have prayed: God let her die so that we can continue with our live.
The woman refuses to die.
Lift your hands to the Almighty God and say: Father, I will not die before my time.
I join my faith with yours and I say amen.
You must fight sickness – fight it in your life, fight it in the life of others; lay hands on the sick, command sickness to leave them; lay your hands on your children; tell sickness leave my children alone.
When the time comes to die that is a settled matter there is nothing we can do about that.
The elders say we can cure sickness we cannot cure death;
We all know that, but I will not die before my time – that is the point.
I am not dying before my time!
And then you must fight over poverty – it is a battle, you have to fight over poverty.
The Bible says in Deuteronomy 15 verse 1, it said there will always be poor people in the land;
It did not say you were the one;
It did not say you will be one of them.
Open your mouth loud and clear and say I refuse to die poor.
You know in Leviticus 25 verse 35, the Bible says if your brother should waxen poor – if your brother becomes poor, help him.
Now which one do you preferred – the one who is helped or the one who is helping?
The one that they have to use second hand cloth to cover or the one who is buying the cloth – which one do you prefer?
Say it one more time I refuse to die poor.
Now, the fight against sickness is fixed because Jesus had already made provision – by His stripes you were healed.
The fight against poverty is already fight because in 2Corinthians chapter 8 verse 9 says He became poor that you might become rich.
He became poor that you might become rich – He has paid for your wealth.
In 3John verse 2, He said clearly I wish above all things that you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.
It is the wish of God that you prosper.
In the Name that is above every other name, it does not matter what anybody may say you will prosper.
John chapter 10 verse 10, Jesus said it Himself, I have come that you may have life and have it more abundantly.
It is fixed, the fight against poverty it is fixed in your favour.
In Psalm 92 verse 12 to 14, the Bible says that the righteous shall flourish; it didn’t say you will manage to survive.
It says you will flourish.
The Bible says in Deuteronomy 28 verse 11 to 12, it said you will be lending to nations and you won’t borrow.
I decree in the Name that is above every other name you will not die in poverty.
So fight poverty; make up your mind, don’t accept it, don’t let them deceive you;
For years the devil tries to deceive Christians telling them money is the root of all evil;
That is not what the Bible said; it said ‘the love’ of money, not money; you need money to do things for God.
I was telling them at European convention of our churches that we just had couple of days ago where forty nine nations gathered for convention.
I told them of something that happened years ago when I was in particular part of the country here and I wanted to preach on their television
And because I was a lecturer at the University they find it difficult to say to me that I cannot preach and so they decided that they will discourage me by charging exorbitantly.
I said I needed so many hours per month.
They said you must pay so much per hour
I said I will pay.
They were surprised.
After one month when they saw that suddenly the programme had become the talk of the town, they called me and they said that I cannot continue.
I said why not?
They said the money I was paying was too little and they said they want to double the money
I said I will pay.
After the second month they called me and they said they want to triple the money
I say I will pay.
Raise your hand to the Almighty God and say: everything I need to serve You provide abundantly.
You must fight poverty.
So do what God says to make sure that poverty is defeated in your life because you are born to win.
Let me hear you say amen loud and clear.
The Bible says sow and you will reap; give and you shall be giving.
The Bible is clear.
But then it also says you must be diligent
Proverbs 22 verse 29 says seest thou a man diligent in his business? he will stand before kings and not before mean men.
I have always told the story of a young man
He was educated but he could not get a job and he said I refuse to die in poverty.
He applied, nobody gave him a job.
He said but I am a good cook
So he got a little bit of money and bought some beans, got a bottle of oil and got one location at one corner somewhere in Lagos and started frying akara.
He is a man, but he began to fry akara and he knew Lagos people, as soon as they saw akara at the road side they began to buy his akara;
Before you knew it he saved money to buy a motorcycle and he began to ride okada.
From the money from one motorcycle he bought the second one so he became an employer of labour.
In the Name that is above every other name, the idea that will lead you to a million God will give you very soon.
And then you must willing to fight the battle over bondage.
Thank You Father.
The Lord asks me to tell somebody that your strength will return steadily.
Daddy says the fellow will understand, whoever the fellow his; but He asked me to tell you that the answer is yes.
Do you know that the battle for your freedom, total freedom, and total deliverance is fixed?
How?
Because God said in James chapter 4 verse 7, He said if you will submit yourself to God, if you resist the devil he will flee from you.
If I can defeat the devil himself, then who are demons?
Demons are just servant of Satan, Satan is the boss and God says I can cause Satan to run.
The Bible says all you need to do is submit to God and then you can tell the devil to run and it will run.
I used the word ‘it’ even though some people prefer to call ‘he’
But you must be determined to resist the devil.
And the Bible says you are to resist the devil steadfastly – it is a fight.
1Peter chapter 5 verse 8 to 9, says you are to resist the devil steadfastly.
You see, because if you don’t resist the devil he will stay and become a thorn in your flesh.
Number chapter 33 verse 55 God said to the children of Israel any of the enemy in the land that you fail to root out will stay and become thorns in your flesh.
The worst part of it is that if you don’t resist the devil he will now begin to resist you.
When you go through the scriptures; if you read Joshua chapter 11 verse 22, it is in Gath that children of Israel allows some giants to stay;
By the time we get to 1Samuel chapter 17 verse 1 to 16, Goliath came from the same Gath to terrorize the children of Israel.
I want to encourage every one of you here tonight every giant in your life must go tonight.
Don’t deal with one giant and leave the others
Because in 2Samuel chapter 21 verse 15 to 22, the Bible tells us that Goliath has four brothers and they all came later after David defeated Goliath, the other four came later, they showed up; one of them would have kill David but somebody helped.
Tonight you and I are going to face every goliath that may be left in our lives and they must go tonight in Jesus’ name.
If you discover that things are not going the way they should go, you then know that it is the devil that is resisting you.
You are not making progress the way you should be making progress, you then know that it is the devil that is resisting you.
When you are reading your books you understand everything and when you get to the examination hall you cannot remember anything that is not natural that is the devil.
What everybody is doing and they are succeeding, you tried to do and you are failing that is not natural there are forces you cannot see at work and you are born to win.
You won’t fail again.
No more defeat in Jesus name.
I told you, some of you are old enough you will remember a story
We held a programme in Akure; we used to call it Christ Redeemer’s Congress in those days.
We finished the programme and we were all going rejoicing, we have had a wonderful time and a man blocked my way and said sir you cannot go.
I said but we have finished; we have prayed;
He said no no you are not going anywhere.
Haa! Okay.
If I am not going anywhere, what is the problem?
He was successful business man; he had a factory but all of a sudden everything broke down.
All the machines refuse to work and he spent all he had and he borrowed so much from his friends that when the friends saw him coming they run
They are not asking him for what he borrowed but they don’t want him to borrow more; so when they saw him coming they run.
I decree in the Name that is above every other name you will never borrow again.
Things got so bad that there was no food in the house and the children had no food for days and the mother could not bear the agony of these children she cry all the time and so the mother became mental.
He had no money to take the woman to hospital so he took her to one baba’lawo.
He said you are not going anywhere my problem must be solve today.
And in the name of the One who sent me before tomorrow money every one of you will sing a song of victory.
Then, okay that is alright.
I say stretch out your hands and he stretched out his hands;
I lay my hands in his hands and I say in the mighty name of Jesus your hands are anointed go and lay your hands on your wife etcetera etcetera and he left.
He got home and went straight to his wife laid the hands on her and the woman jumped up like somebody coming out of a sleep, and said what am I doing here?
Haa! this thing is working.
He ran to his machine, lay hands on the machine and the machine began to work immediately.
The next time I saw him he was riding a brown new car.
In the Name that is above every other name, every force blocking your way shall be move away today in Jesus name.
Let me just mention one more so that we will have time to pray before we go to other things we want to do.
What about victories over attackers?
People who are just attacking you;
I mean you heard the testimony of one of our children that was made chairman of one something and some people just decided to attack.
You know there are some people who just love to attack you simply because you are succeeding; we are going to deal with them tonight.
Thank You Father.
The Lord said there is someone here, He said you used to be extremely happy and said but things changed; God asked me to tell you I will restore.
I think this is my own; so let me say amen to it before I tell you.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said the people you have helped will begin to come back to bless you.
Thank You Lord.
Daddy says there is someone here, He said where you have failed your children will succeed.
What about victory over attackers?
Some people just love to attack you because you are succeeding; don’t worry yourself the fight is fixed.
Because Isaiah 54 verse 17 says there is no weapon formed against you that shall prosper.
It is already settled even before you begin to fight at all; there weapons God said will not prosper.
But take note: He said in Isaiah 54 verse 15, He said surely they will gather together but not by Me – I Am not the one gathering these people against you;
And then God said whosoever shall gather against you shall fall for your sake.
Some people have always says why don’t you do something about your enemies?
There is no need.
If anything at all, I should be praying to God to be merciful because says He will deal with them
Those who gather together against you shall for your sake.
I am not the one who said so.
He said I will deal with them.
He said in another place, He said don’t worry yourself My son, He said vengeance is mine I will repay.
And if you have ever seen God fight you will be afraid for your enemies.
The elders have a saying, they said when God decide to fight for you, you that is fighting for you will become frightened.
Go through the scriptures; if only these people will read the Bible they will stay away from you, they won’t bother you.
Because in Numbers 16 verse 1 to 34, some people gathered together against Moses, the ground swallows them alive.
That is very frightened.
Somebody said don’t you understand the meaning of Psalm 23 verse 5?
Psalm 23 verse 5 says thou prepareth a table before me (where?) in the presence of my enemy.
He said how do you think that happens?
He paralyses them.
When God want to deal with your enemies He will paralyse them;
When He wants to deal with your enemies He sould cause them to die early, the ground will swallow them;
Or (because some people will say that’s in the Old Testament; I will show you one in the New Testament) when somebody tries to hinder you from doing the work of God, God could give that fellow enough problems.
Acts of the Apostles chapter 13 verse 6 to 12, Paul was preaching and there was this fellow who was saying that is not true;
After sometime Paul said, okay, since you don’t want me to do the work that God called to do, how about you becoming blind – thank God Paul added for awhile.
God can give enough problem to those who want to hinder that they won’t even have time for you at all.
I can talk to you, I can tell you example upon examples.
I mean of recent I heard that one prophet – he called himself prophet – that he prophesied I will die very soon.
Haha!
When I heard smiled and I spoke the kind of grammar that we used to speak when I was at Nsukka in the 1960s – “I said wettin I do you for”.
What did he say I have done to him?
I don’t know him, our path have not crossed and he said I am going to die!
And so people said well what are going to do about it?
I said nothing; that is already settled.
I will tell you one story:
Several years ago some of the children of in First-square, I think Assembly of God and Redeemed Christian Church of God and some other ministries joined together to start a bank
When they started the bank the day they wanted to launch it they invited me to come and help them pray
So I went
After the prayer they said they want me to be their first customer.
I said I have no money
I am talking of years ago.
Well, they said that is no problem, just open an account they said they will put fifty thousand naira there, as out of their own pocket.
Okay.
So I filled the form.
And then one newspaper reported the story and said I am the one who started the bank and that I deposited and I spent fifty million naira to start the bank
Hey!
At that time even if you sell the whole of us in Redeemed we are not up to fifty million.
And then there was a meeting of Pentecostal leaders, it was around the time when the Arch Bishop of Idahosa had just die;
While the meeting was on, one fellow got up who called himself a prophet got up and said he had that I have started a bank and thus saith the Lord, just as the Idahosa died suddenly I will be the next fellow to follow.
And everybody there they were all looking at me.
Aren’t you going to say something?
There is no need; no need.
God has already spoken: He says when a prophet says I said when I did not say anything I will deal with the prophet.
That’s more than twenty-years ago I am still here.
The one who said I am going to die is no more.
I have good news for you my children, anyone who is expecting you to die before your time; you will be there at their burial ceremony; you will be there at their funeral.
You are born to win.
Let me round up with this because I want you to really pray for at least thirty minutes tonight because our weapon of warfare is not carnal;
We don’t fight with guns and cutlasses but we fight with prayer.
And every goliath must fall tonight; we must activate our victory tonight.
You must fight till every no becomes yes.
In Matthew 15 from verse 21 to 28, a woman came to Jesus Christ and said I am not the one in trouble really it is my daughter; my child is grievously vexed with the devil; the devil is troubling my home.
I need help.
At first Jesus did not answer her.
She kept on crying
The Apostles, the Bishops, the Pastors said Lord drive this woman away she is too noisy.
Jesus said I Am not sent to anybody except to the house of Israel.
The woman said whether I belong to the house of Israel or not I am getting a miracle tonight.
The devil is going to be defeated in my family tonight.
She came to the Lord and say have mercy on me; I know I am not of the house of Israel but have mercy on me
Jesus Christ said I cannot give the bread of children to dog;
She said haa, this dog is not going home without a miracle.
There is somebody here tonight you won’t go back the way you came.
She cried until Jesus said woman great is your faith, receive your miracle.
In John chapter 2 verse 1 to 11, when the mother of Jesus came to him and said no more wine in Canaan of Galilee;
His mother said to those who are standing there don’t move an inch; anything He asks you to do, do it.
What Jesus Christ said was that not yet.
Because this people refuse to move ‘not yet’ becomes ‘now’.
Every miracle that you have been expecting, you are getting it tonight in Jesus name.
You must learn to fight until every no becomes a yes; every not yet becomes now.
Remember the story in Mark chapter 2 verse 1 to 12, when they brought this young man who was paralyzed from neck downward, brought by his four friends;
And they got there they found that the doors were blocked by people, windows block by the people, they climbed to the roof and dropped the roof;
The Bible says from the days of John the Baptist the kingdom of God suffereth violent and the violent take it by force.
The problem with many of us is that just before our result we stop praying.
Tonight we are going to force our way through; we are born to win we are tired of losing; we are more than conquerors no more defeat.
You are born to prosper no more loses.
I thought I will hear amen loud and clear.
I have told you the story of a day after one convention and then I was very very tired
I have finished, everybody had gone home and I have gone round the camp so that everything was in order;
I came back home and I told my wife no more visitors; now I am qualify to rest, I am going to bed.
Shortly after that she came: woman I told you that I don’t want any more assignment I want to rest.
Haa!
There is a woman at the door she came from the north:
Is Daddy home?
They said yes.
My children don’t lie.
I want to see him
They said he is not seeing anybody again today.
The woman said he is home?
They said yes.
He is not seeing anybody today?
They said yes.
Who is talking about today?
I will seat at this door until he comes – whether today or tomorrow;
He is in!
Then fine.
How many of you know that God has not travelled; that God is at home and He is ready to hear you?
Let me hear you shout a big hallelujah.
So my wife said you are tired, you better add this one to your tiredness.
They said they gave her food; she sat down at my door and ate the food and just relaxed.
He is at home!
I came to her
Woman what is the trouble?
It is this my head – anytime something good is about to happen; something will happen and throw it away.
Just touch this head and bless and then I will be able to go.
Lay your hand on your own head and say: head, hear the word of the Lord you are born to win, you must win.
And so shall it be in Jesus mighty name.
And so tonight we are going to pray and you are going to pray for thirty minutes.
You are going to name all the giants blocking your way one by one and tell them in the mighty name of Jesus Christ they must get out of your way now.
Every sickness, every diseases, every ache, every pain, everything causing you sorrow, your problems physical, your problems material, your problems spiritual, your problems marital, you must present them before God one by one by one tonight until we get up knowing fully well that we are born to win and winners we are.
So if you want you can come to the altar, if you want you can kneel down, if you want you can seat down, if you want you can stand, but if I were you I will pray with all my heart. You will start by thanking the Almighty God and then present your case. God is hear, He has not travel, He is willing to listen to you; you are born to win.
Go ahead and begin to talk to the Almighty God. Tell Him all the problems that have been hindering your victory and claim your victory tonight. Call on Him and He will answer you, He will surprise you tonight and you will leave this place shouting I am more than a conqueror.
Thank You Jesus. *Speaking in the Holy Ghost*. Hallelujah. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Father. Hallelujah Father.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Before I pray for you I want you to please stand; we want to pray some prayer in agreement.
Let us stand.
Let us stand up and join our hand with our neighbour; we want to pray prayer of agreement – one or two.
First of all I want you to say to the Almighty God loud and clear and say: Father, I am in agreement with my neighbour give my neighbour total victory.
Go ahead talk to the Almighty.
I am in agreement Lord with all these Your children, total victory Lord, total victory; total victory; total victory Lord, total victory; total victory my Father and my God, total victory for all these Your children, total victory; Physical, material, mental, marital, spiritual, total victory Lord; total victory, total victory; total victory. *Speaking in the Holy Ghost*. Total victory Lord; total victory. Thank You Father.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
With your hands still joined together I want you to lift your voice to Him and say: Father we are in one accord in all our churches no more cancer.
Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.
In the mighty name of Jesus we are in one accord, we are in one accord, we are in one accord Lord; You said if two of us shall agree on anything that will ask on earth, it will be done by our Father in heaven, we are in one accord, in all our churches Lord no more cancer, no more cancer, no more cancer in the mighty name of Jesus; no more cancer; no more cancer; **speaking in the Holy Ghost**; no more cancer Lord. **Speaking in the Holy Ghost**. No more cancer Lord in the mighty name of Jesus. **Speaking in the Holy Ghost**. Thank You Father. Thank You Father. Thank You Father.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
And then lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, in all our families’ no more premature death.
Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.
In all our families Lord we are in one accord, we decree Lord, no more premature death; in the mighty name of Jesus no more premature death. **Speaking in the Holy Ghost**. Thank You. Thank You Father. Glory be to God. **Speaking in the Holy Ghost**. Thank You Father. Glory be to Your holy name. **Speaking in the Holy Ghost**. Thank You my Father. Glory be to Your holy name.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
One more prayer and you pray this one with all your heart and say: Father, I agree with my neighbour from now on open doors.
Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.
Open doors in every areas of the life of these children of God; open doors, open doors, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ open doors; **speaking in the Holy Ghost**; no more hindrance, no more slow down, open doors, open doors, open doors. Thank You Father. Open doors. For all these your children I am in total agreement, open doors; open doors. Thank You Father. Open doors physical, open doors material, open doors spiritual, open doors everywhere in all areas of my life; open doors, open doors; **speaking in the Holy Ghost**. Thank You Father. Thank You Lord.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

I stand here today Lord as Your representative to these Your children and as their representative to You, I want to make some decrees Lord and as I do so establish it. If only to prove to them that You are the One who called me, every decree I made this morning establish it. In the Name that is above every other name none of you will die before your time. In a manner that you cannot even understand God will clear your debt. The life more abundant that Jesus promise beginning from this month you will begin to enjoy it; you will never fail again; you will never know defeat; there will be no more loses for you; you will never know sorrow again; God will renew your strength; and in all your families there will be no more premature death; in all your churches no more cancer; beginning from today doors will open unto you; every goliath in your life shall fall tonight; it shall be well with you. Forever you will be a winner. All who gathered against you shall fall. God will help you; He will support you; He will make your victory total. So shall it be. And you too you will serve God; you will find it easy to win souls; none of your relatives will go to hell; none of your neighbours will go to hell; God will help you to win souls; it shall be well with you; He will answer all your prayers and your joy will never end.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Go ahead and give the Lord a big round over applause.
God bless you.

King of kings, Lord of lords, the Holy one of Israel, the most high God, the Almighty, the Alpha, the Omega, the Beginning, the Ending, the One who is, the One who was, the One who is to come, the Almighty; Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, the Way, the Truth, the Life, the Unchangeable changer, the One who can make the impossible possible, the One who can reverse the irreversible, the One can make away where there is no way before, the One who can bring something out of nothing; glory be to Your holy name; accept our worship in Jesus’ name.
Tonight we are here just to praise You Lord, please accept our praise and accept us also. Father I pray before the sun raises tomorrow every one of us will have a new song to sing.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen.
Let somebody shout hallelujah.
Shake hand with one or two people and prophesy to them and say: before the sun rises you will sing a new song.
And if you believe that let me hear you shout a big hallelujah.
Then you may please be seated.
Let us start with those who are yet to give their live to Jesus Christ very briefly.
Psalm 103 from verse 1 to 5:
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving-kindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
I am talking to those of you who are yet to surrender your life to Jesus.
I want you to know you need forgiveness of sins and it is available to you – forgiveness is available to you.
Why?
Because Psalm 130 verse 3 and 4 says if God were to mark iniquities, who can stand?
In order that your prayers and your praise might not be hindered you need forgiveness.
Isaiah 59 verses 1 and 2 says the hand of the Lord is not shortened that He cannot save neither His ears heavy that He cannot hear but your sin we separate between you and your God that He won’t hear you.
So if you want God to hear you even praising Him at all, you need forgiveness and forgiveness is available in Christ.
You need healing because David said here; he was listing the reasons why we should praise God: Forgiveness of our iniquities and healing of our diseases.
You need healing and if you don’t need it now you are likely to need it one day and believe me honestly if you come to Jesus –
1Peter chapter 2 verse 24 says it is by His stripes that we were healed.
After He had carried our sins on the tree, after forgiveness, healing becomes available and then he said He redeems our lives from destruction –
Redemption is available for you and you need it.
You need redemption from forces of darkness.
Oh, believe me honestly, Hebrews chapter 9 verse 12 made it clear: it is not the blood of goat or sheep or calves that can give you redemption, it is the blood of Jesus Christ;
And if you are to be redeemed from forces of darkness forgiveness is a must.
And then He talks about loving-kindness and mercies – you need the mercies of God; every one of us need the mercy of God.
Because according to Lamentation 3 verse 22 and 23, it is of the mercies of the Lord that we are not consumed; It is because of His mercies that we are still alive today.
And not only that He has satisfies your mouth with good things;
God had been making provision for you up till today; you may not have all you think you need but God had made sure that you are surviving.
The Bible says in Matthew 5 verse 45 that He has been giving you sunshine and rain even though you are not yet the child of God.
The sunshine is on you just as it shines on those who are children of God.
Then if you consider all that God has done for you;
Because if you just think a little you will know that it is not everyone born the same day that you were born that is the still alive today;
Not everyone you went to school with is still alive today;
When you consider all that God has done for you then you should ask a question that David asked in Psalm 116 verse 12 to 14:
He said what shall I render unto to the Lord? For all His goodness to me, what shall I render?
He said what I will do is: I will take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the Lord.
It is in your own interest that you take the invitation of Jesus Christ, take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the Lord.
If you call on Him He will save your soul.
Romans chapter 10 verse 13 says if you call upon the name of the Lord you shall be saved.
But the Bible says you must call on him when He is near; it says seek the Lord while He may be found, call on Him while He is near – Isaiah 55 verse 6 t 7
Call on Him for salvation and He will save your soul
And if you refuse His invitation be sure that trouble is coming one day according to Proverbs chapter 1 verse 24 to 28 – a time will come when you will now want to call on Him and He won’t answer
Because He will say I set out my hand to you and I say come to me, you refuse;
I say let me save your soul, you said I should mind My own business;
Then when trouble comes I will just be laughing at you – it is there in the word of God.
Before it is too late, give your life to Jesus and let Him save your soul so that He can hear your cry whenever you call on Him.
Remember, according to Psalm 40 verse 1 to 3, it is only those who call on God, who had received an answer to their request that can sing a new song.
It said that I call on Him and He answered me; then He brought me out of the miry clay, set my feet upon the rock and then put a new song in m y mouth.
You can be the first to sing a new song tonight and your new song can be I was a sinner and now I am saved;
Your own new song can be I am rejoicing that my name has been written in the book of life – if you give your life to Him tonight.
So if you are here and you have not yet surrender your life to Jesus Christ, I am going to count very quickly from one to ten and before I say ten come and stand before me; let me pray for you that the Almighty God will save your soul, He will forgive your sin that He is going to wipe away all the sins you have ever committed and then redemption become available, deliverance become available, abundance become available, come to Him now as I began to count.
One, two, three,
You are going to sing a new song tonight the moment you surrender your life to Him and your sins are washed away and then you will be able to sing that I was a sinner I am now saved by grace.
Four,
You can sing a new song – O happy day – if you give your life to Him tonight.
Five, six,
And those of you in the old arena just move towards the altar there, there are men of God there ready to attend to you
Surrender your life to Him and He will save your soul and things will change for the better for you.
Six, seven, eight,
I know you are coming from a long distance, just keep coming, keep coming.
Thank you those of you who are clapping, your hands will never wither.
Nine,
Thank You Jesus.
Now those of you who are already in front and those of you who are on the way just call on the Almighty God and say please have mercy on me today, save my soul and I will serve You for the rest of my life; I want to sing a new song – a song of salvation tonight; please save my soul, forgive all my sin, receive me into the family of God and I will serve You for the rest of my life; be my Saviour, be my Lord.
The rest of us please let us stretch our hands to our new brothers and sisters and intercede for them that the One who saved our souls will save their own souls also. Pray for them brethren; intercede for them that the Almighty God will give them genuine salvation tonight. Pray that the blood of Jesus wash away all their sins. Thank You Father.
Those of you in front cry to the Almighty God: have mercy on me, save my soul O Lord; save my soul and I will serve You for the rest of my life, I will serve You for the rest of my life. Thank You Jesus.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Father Almighty we want to thank You for Your word; we want to thank You for these people who have come forward to surrender their lives to You and Father we are also remembering all those who are listening to us all over the world, as many of them that have come forward even in their living room to surrender their live to You please receive them all in Jesus’ name. Father I pray that the blood that cleanses from all sins we wash away the sins of these Your people that you will save their souls and write their names in the book of life; please receive them into the family of God and I pray that from now on anytime they call on You You will answer them by fire; and I pray that they will not backslide and they will serve You for the rest of their lives so that in the kingdom of God none of them will be missing.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen.
Amen.
Those of you who have come forward let me hear you shout hallelujah
Alright
I want to assure you that from now on by the grace of God I will be praying for you.
So, I am going to need your names, your address and your prayer request;
And the Counselors is going to be giving you a card now, fill that card very quickly; we will wait for two/three minutes to do that and return the card to the Counselors; we will wait for you before we continue.
Thank you.
Thank You Lord.
Okay now, let us go to Psalm 34 verse 1:
David said ‘I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.’
I will like you to repeat that after me: I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Man is created to sing.
That is why you find that we have songs for every occasion.
We have songs for joyful occasions; we have songs for occasions that are not so joyful; we have songs for weddings, songs for a new bath; we have songs for marriage and we have songs for death; we have songs for every situation.
As a matter of fact if you listen to the song that a man is singing you can guess what is happening in his life.
For example, if somebody had just lost a battle the song will be: we will overcome; we will overcome; we will overcome someday – he has just lost a battle.
If he has just won a battle, O his song will be different: Now the battle is over, now the battle is over, now the battle is over, I am more than a conqueror – he has just won a battle.
If you hear somebody singing: in Jesus name every knee shall bow, in Jesus name every knee shall bow – he is fighting a battle and the battle is hot.
Those of you who are old enough you will remember I have told you about a housemaid we had once.
Anytime we are having family fellowship and we ask her to raise a chorus her chorus was always: Alagbara lolorun wa, ina jo igbe o run, alagbara lolorun wa.
So one day my wife and I said we better find out which bush is burning?
And we discover that the girl became a house help because the parent were in debt.
So we decided to pay off the debt
The following day the song change: O ti se o ohun to bamileru…
You will sing a new song tonight.
Like those who are already before me said if you want to draw God near sing His praise because He inhabits the praises of His people even if the song is going to be a sacrifice sing.
Because Jeremiah chapter 17 verse 26 says that you could come to God with sacrifice of praise; even if you have nothing to give at least you can sing praises to God.
Remember what one of my sons said, he said it does not matter what your situation may be you can sing your way out.
In Job chapter 19 verse 25, Job was in the most terrible situation anybody could be when he sang the song: “I know my Redeemer liveth, I know my Redeemer liveth, I know my Redeemer liveth, He liveth forever more.”
No matter how dark the situation, like one of my boys is saying God is still God and God is on His throne, offer sacrifice of praise.
One of my boys also mentioned Habakkuk 3 verse 14 to 19, he said even if the fig tree will not blossom, if there be no fruit in the vine, if olive fail, if field refuse to yield meat, if water cut off from the fold, if there is no herd in the store, he said yet I will praise God;
It does not matter what is happening, praise Him.
Do I hear somebody shout a big hallelujah?
But like I said because my children have done a lot of very good work, let me just spend the next few minutes to talk about HOW?
Number one: Praise Him with your mouth.
Psalm 34 verse 1 – David said I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall be continually be in my mouth.
Like these boys have told us it is not possible for you to be praising God and be complaining at the same time.
When you are complaining you are not praising;
When you are murmuring you are not praising;
But David said His praise shall continually be in my mouth, no time when I will not be praising Him.
In Psalm 89 verse 1, he said I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever; with my mouth will I make known His faithfulness unto all generations.
Psalm 35 verse 18, he said I will give thanks in the great congregation; I will praise thee among much people.
I like what one of the boys said, it is only the humble that knows how to praise God.
Humble people they know how to praise God;
Proud people will say what has He done?
That is why you will find that those of us who can sing and praise God are those (at least those of us who do it best) are those of us who are nothing
Because we don’t find it difficult to praise God;
Those who are really big they even find it difficult to laugh; they don’t laugh with their mouth wide open.
I told my children, my Pastor not too long ago on one occasion:
Somebody invited me to a restaurant to eat and we were eating and some people were behind me and I heard the way they were laughing I said to my children, I said the people behind me must be Aristocrats – big people, because I can hear their laughter.
They cannot even laugh; so when it comes to praise they think they are diminishing themselves if they praise God.
But there are those of us who know we were nothing but for God.
If God did not pick me up from the gutter I won’t be where I am today and it is by His grace alone that I am what I am that is while every time I say let somebody shout hallelujah
That is while one of my songs and I sang that song – I cannot remember; was it on Monday at the divine encounter – it says: ‘I will sing unto the Lord a joyful song, I will praise His name for the Lord is good. Hallelujah’.
Those who know where they are coming from; who know how far He has taken them; that find it easy to sing a joyful song.
And I know there must be at least seven people here today that the Lord had been good to also and I want those seven people to join me and shout hallelujah.
So when it comes to praising God with do it with our mouth.
Second way we praise Him is with our hands.
(Thank you very much. I will give you an opportunity to do that very soon)
You see in Psalm 134 verse 1 to 3 says bless the Lord ye servants of the Lord, stand by night in the presence of the Lord; he said, lift up your hands…
When you lift up your hands up – you know what you are doing?
You are saying I surrender
Because I was a boxer; I don’t look like one now; but in those days you don’t know the strength of your opponent until you get into the ring.
You look at the fellow and you will say this fellow I will…
Some people they look thin but they are very strong
When you now get into the ring and think you are going to knock him down;
In the first round and then he gave you one on the head and you find yourself on the ground and you will struggle up;
He knocked you down the second time – haa, I won’t let this man kill me; if I run today I will be able to fight tomorrow – so you will raise your hands.
Because the moment you lift your hands you say I surrender and he must not beat you again.
When lift your hands to the Almighty God and you surrender to Him nobody dear touch you; nobody, nobody.
You will lift your hands to the Almighty God and just wave it to Him.
Wave, wave, wave to the Almighty God
He says I surrender to the Almighty God
As long as you are still showing that there is nobody like you you will get into trouble;
But when you say Lord I surrender, I have no strength of my own, I cannot take care of myself, then He said okay in that case I will take care of you.
The elders have a saying they said when a child lift up his hand you will carry the child.
When you lift your hands to the Almighty God, He looks down from heaven and He carries you in His mighty hand
And when God is carrying you in His mighty hand, let me see the devil that will come and touch you there.
Wave your hand to Him one more time; just wave it to Him; wave it to Him; wave it to Him.
Now, in addition to waving your hand to Him, the Bible says in Psalm 47 verse 1
Psalm 47 verse says clap your hands all ye people
That is good
You don’t know the meaning of clapping, I will tell you today
When you know the meaning of clapping you won’t be clapping the way you were doing in the past.
Just hold on; hold on.
You know there are some people who know the Bible very well; not like me I am just learning; some people they know the original
They said when the Bible says clap your hand is actually saying put your enemies between your two hands and jam them together.
Is it sickness that is troubling you, put the sickness between your two hands and jam it together.
Is it barrenness that is troubling you, put it between your two hands and jam it together.
Is it poverty that is troubling you, put it between your two hands and jam the hands together.
Clap your hands all ye people.
Amen.
That is okay.
The Bible says in Psalm 98 verse 8…; if you pay attention to the song that we sang – the special song for today – it says ‘the flood clap their hands’
Each time you are by the beach you will see the wave coming in and when it land it sounds like clapping.
The Bible says in Isaiah 53 verse 12, it says even trees clap their hands.
And you know what clapping means?
The real meaning of clapping when you are clapping for Jesus is to say I will corporate with you.
I will show you how
Don’t worry you are going to clap in a moment.
I told the elders here, those who are older; they will remember that one day the palm of one man’s hand was wonderings as they listen to birds singing – the fingers;
And they say these birds are singing, we too want to make some music
But no matter how hard they try singing no sound came
And after sometimes two of them decided that they will corporate and the moment both of them began to corporate sound came.
They say if two fingers can corporate and produced sound, what will happen if more fingers corporate?
I want you to lift your left hand, just lift your left hand and with your left fingers tap the palm of the left hand;
Now in increase the left fingers to two; increase it to three; increase to four and then put everything together.
Is there anybody here tonight who want to say to Jesus Christ I will corporate with you?
Then put those hands together – clap your hands all ye people.
Amen.
Because of time let us move on quickly
Then how else can we praise God?
With our legs
Legs!
O yes!
We could praise God with our legs by bowing down before Him – courtesy.
When they say somebody came and worship God;
What they met is that the fellow came and knelt down.
You bow your knees; you are saying to the Almighty God I admit that You are superior to me.
In Genesis chapter 41 verse 41 to 43, the Bible said Pharaoh said concerning Joseph everyone of you when you see Joseph bow your knees.
In Psalm 95 verse 6, the Bible says let us kneel before our Maker
If you believe that God is superior to you, you will bow your knees.
Thank God for my people; when a woman wants to show the husband is superior me, she knees.
They don’t do that much now a days but they used to do that in the olden days
When you want to show to the Almighty God that I admit that You are superior to me, what do you do?
You bow before Him.
There is another ways by which we can use our legs to praise God and that is by dancing.
Thank You Father.
I want you to listen to me carefully because the Lord says whoever is concern will understand; because one day you are going to stand on this altar and testify of what am about to say.
Daddy asks me to tell you, you will win.
In Exodus 15 from verse 20 to 21, after the crossing of the red sea the Bible said Miriam and all the women danced as they sang unto the Lord.
In 2Samuel chapter 6 from verse 14 to the end, the Bible said David danced with all his might.
He was a king but he danced before the Almighty God
And when the wife said how can you be dancing like this; don’t you know who you are?
He said I know who I am.
I am dancing because the person who made me who I am, the One who took the throne from your father and gave it to me; that is the One I am dance for.
And he said you have not seen anything yet – I will dance more.
In Psalm 149 verse 1 to 3, particularly verse 3 the Bible said you are to praise His name in the dance.
In Psalm 150 verse 4, the Bible said you are to praise Him with the cymbals and dance.
Now, what does dancing mean?
All you need to do to know what it is to dance for God is learn a lesson from the dog – ordinary animal, the dog.
I am lover of dogs; I have many of them.
But there was one particular we call lady white and both of us were in love – I loved the little girl and she loved me.
When I travelled and I returned; Oh you will know
Lady-white will come and be dancing – very little
It does not matter how many people around she will come and dance.
What was she saying?
You are my owner; I love you; I appreciate you; thank you for taking care of me; thank you for feeding me; I thank you for protecting me;
When you dance for God that’s what you are saying.
The Bible says in Psalm 95 verse 7, he said He is God, we are His sheep, He is the One taking care of us, He is the One protecting us, He is the One providing for us
We dance for God.
Years ago we use to sing a song and we have not been singing for quite a while; it has several verses – Verse one says:
Singing praise to the Lord
Singing hallelujah
Singing praise to the Lord
Singing hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Singing hallelujah

Singing praise to the Lord
Singing hallelujah

One of the verses the one I like:
Dancing unto the Lord
Dancing hallelujah
Dancing unto to the Lord
Dancing hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Dancing hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Dancing hallelujah
There are other verses but the other verses are probably for the younger ones:
Jumping unto to the Lord
Jumping hallelujah
Jumping unto the Lord
Jumping hallelujah
Amen.
Even as you are jumping God will take you higher.
But then somebody said one thing: when David said bless the Lord O my soul and all that is within me bless His holy name
He said how can what is inside me bless the name of the Lord?
How can the liver bless the Lord?
How can the heart bless the Lord?
How can the kidney bless Him?
He said by dancing
Because when you are dancing everything that is inside you is moving.
Do I see somebody who really wants to dance a little bit for the Almighty God because there is only one way all that is within you can bless His holy name.
Shall we sing that song one more time?
Dancing unto the Lord
Dancing hallelujah
Dancing unto the Lord
Dancing hallelujah
Dancing unto Jehovah
Dancing hallelujah
Dancing unto the Lord
Dancing hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Dancing hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Dancing hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Dancing hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Dancing hallelujah
Let me hear somebody shout hallelujah.
You can praise Him with your mouth;
You can praise Him with your hands;
You can praise Him with your leg;
Everything that is within you can praise Him.
And then you can praise Him with your whole body by lying prostrate before Him
One of my children had already quoted Revelations chapter 4 verse 10 to 11 (He mentioned verse 11; he should have included verse 10):
The twenty-four elders in heaven they fall down before the Almighty God, they take off their crowns and lay it down; they sing to the Almighty God:
You are the One who made us what we are
We did not deserve to wear crowns
You are the One who put the crown on our head
We shouldn’t even be called elders
You are the One who made us elder
We do not deserve to be in Your presence
You are the One who put us in Your presence.
They removed their crowns, they lay it down, the lay prostrate before they began to say thou art worthy.
When you lie prostrate for the Almighty God you are telling Him there is nothing I have that is not from You; there is nothing I have that You did not give me; I lay everything at Your feet.
That is while you find many at times when I have the opportunity to pray with the ministers I lie prostrate before Him.
I lie prostrate before Him because when I look round, when I see what God has done;
When I remember like for example when we came to this camp ground, you know our first portion of land here was four and half acres; today, this auditorium alone is more than a four and half acres.
When I look around and I remember…; I was still talking to one of my children not too long ago that the first convention we held here, the dormitories, somebody called the dormitories chicken houses because that was what they were.
When I see what He has done and I know if I am grateful for what He had done in the past, He has not even started;
When I looked at what He has done, I can look forward to what He is yet to do.
I lay prostrate before He – I say Lord I put everything at Your feet.
When you learn to lay prostrate before the Almighty God you are saying to Him I brought nothing into this and I know when I am going I will take nothing out but I know I will be going into Your presence where I will praise You forever more.
How many of you are trusting God that one day in heaven, where they praise God without season, you are going to be there?
If you are going to be there let me hear you shout hallelujah.
Because the Almighty God instructed me specifically that tonight hands should be laid on everybody who came and my time is gone
I will have to rush over the other points I am about to make.
Some of these children have mentioned some of them
The rewards of praising God:
I will just rush over them.
Number one: when you praise Him you get divine visitation – John 4 verse 23 to 24.
When you learn to praise Him you get miracles that shake the earth – earth shaking miracles
Acts 16 from verse 25 to 34…
Haa! thank You Father.
Again God is talking to someone specifically and He said the fellow will understand
He said the one who planned your down fall will watch as you are rising and he is sinking.
Thank You Father.
God said somebody is going to sing a song (I will sing the song to you in Yoruba because it is Yoruba song and I will tell you what it means) But God said somebody is going to be singing that song very soon.
And the song is:
Oba mimo gba’so iya lara mi
Aso iya
Mi o fa so iya bora mo
Aso iya
Before you sing it, so that others will know what it means.
It says: the Almighty God has taken the garment of suffering from me and I won’t wear it again.
Even if you don’t know how to sing it just form it along with us.
Oba mimo gba’so iya lara mi
Aso iya
Mi o fa so iya bora mo
Aso iya
Edumare gba’so iya lara mi
Aso iya
Mi o fa so iya bora mo
Aso iya
Oludande gba’so iya lara mi
Aso iya
Mi o fa so iya bora mo
Aso iya
Oba mimo gba’so iya lara mi
Aso iya
Mi o fa so iya bora mo
Aso iya
Let somebody shout hallelujah.
You know one of my children said God is called fearful in praises because He is unpredictable when you are praising Him.
Daddy asked me to tell somebody and I believe it is me.
You see between every two days there is a night; between every two mountains there is a valley; problem with a day, particularly day of joy is that it has a way of varnishing quickly:
You are looking forward to your birthday, make several preparations, then the day comes and your friends gather and before you know it the day is gone.
But the Lord asks me to tell someone tonight, He says I will make your day last a thousand years.
O thank You my Father.
So when you praise Him you get divine visitation;
You get earth shaken miracles;
You get open doors;
Prison doors are force open;
Your yokes are destroyed;
Enemies become servants;
Enemies are silenced;
You get a blank check.
2Chronicles chapter 1 verse 6 to 12 – when Solomon worshipped God and God visited him; He said ask anything you want.
When you praise God (and I like this) He will give you more than you can even ask for.
Solomon asked for only wisdom and God said I will give you wisdom, I will give you wealth, I will give you long life, I will give you peace;
God just kept on adding.
Haa thank You Father.
I wish I could just keep on preaching but we have to cut it and short it so that we can have time to praise Him.
Thank You my Father.
Again I believe this one is for me because He asked to tell somebody here tonight He said I will have mercy on you.
I want to stop but Daddy is still speaking
Daddy said there is someone here tonight He said very soon your middle name will be miracles.
We will continue with the preaching next time.
I want you to stand up on your feet; I want you to praise God on your own.
You know there is one way we used to do it in the olden days
When the Bible says make a joyful noise unto the Lord – there is a way we did it.
What we did then was: I will think of a song, you will think of your own song of praise; you will be singing your own, I will be singing my own;
When we combine it all, it will become a joyful noise unto Lord.
So think of a song of praise to the Almighty God and sing a song to Him; a song that will glorify His holy name.
Just sing unto the Lord
I don’t say come to the altar, just stay where you are and sing unto the Lord.
Sing; sing unto Him; make a joyful noise unto the Lord. He says I will sing unto the Lord a joyful song; I will praise His name for the Lord is good; the Lord is good. I will sing unto my God a joyful song, I will praise His name for the Lord is good. O yes, I am singing because my name has been written; I am singing because I am born-again; I am singing to the King of kings, singing to the Lord of lords, singing to the Ancient of days; singing; singing; singing unto the Lord; blessed be Your holy name Lord. Thank You Jesus.
I will sing unto the Lord a joyful song
I will praise His name for the Lord is good

I will sing unto the Lord a joyful song
I will praise His name for the Lord is good
Thank You Father. Glory be to Your holy name. Thank You Father.
In Jesus mighty name we have praise God.
You will have time to sing more but we want to go ahead now and lay hands.

Amen.
Let somebody shout hallelujah.
Shake hands with one or two Ambassadors’ of Christ and say: Your Excellency, God will make you great.
And then you may please be seated.
God bless you.
Luke chapter 1 from verse 26 to 33:
26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
My son who spoke before me had given you a very beautiful presentation on the Lord Jesus Christ; I will only add just a little to what he had said.
But as usual let us begin with those of us who might not yet be truly born again.
Long before your birth every one of us present here God had decreed greatness for you
It is a decree
Like I said earlier on, when He was speaking in Genesis chapter 1 verse 28, the first time He spoke to our fore-fathers He said be blessed, be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, subdue it and have dominion;
You can be greater than that.
And when God speaks it is done.
Psalm 33 verses 8 and 9 – let the whole earth fear before Him while He spake and it is done
Because He is not a man that He should lie – Numbers 23 verse 19
So before we were born God had decreed that we should be great.
And according to Isaiah 55 verse 10 to 11, He said His word will not return to Me void.
In Mark chapter 13 verse 31, He said even if heaven and earth passed away His word will not pass away.
So anyone born into this world can go right back to that original pronouncement of God and claim greatness.
However, not all people who are born great become great.
The Bible is full of several examples of those who are born great but they never become great.
For example Cain – Genesis 4 from verse 1 to 14 – he was the first born of the human race.
If anybody deserves to be great, Cain deserves to be great; but at the end of his life he ended up a vagabond.
He was born to be great but he ended up a vagabond.
Another example – the children of Eli:
Their father was a high priest of most high God and God has said, God Himself said to Eli that his household will forever be a household of Priest;
But then the children of Eli began to behave in a certain manner that causes the Almighty God who speaks and it is done to say in 1Samuel chapter 2 from verse 30 to 36: He said, I said indeed;
God said I AM the One who said so I didn’t send a prophet: to you Eli that you, your father’s house shall stand before me forever;
He said but now I say be it far from Me; He say I change my mind – I AM the Almighty God, I AM Sovereign;
I said it, I say I don’t say it anymore.
May I pray for somebody here today every good thing that God has promised you will not be cancel.
God went further to say to Eli, He said a day is coming that anyone who is of the linage of Eli will be going to Pastors to beg for bread -they were the people who were supposed to be in charge.
Because God said those who honour Me I will honour.
Let me give you another example: take this man called Gehazi; one of the biggest losers in the world.
He became the private secretary of Elisha;
You know Elisha he was an extremely powerful man of God (we will probably talk about him more later)
Why?
Because he got the double portion of the spirit of Elijah
And by divine arrangement, Gehazi ended up becoming his servant, in line to collect the double portion of the spirit of Elisha; but he blew it.
2Kings chapter 5 verse 20 to 27, he ended up becoming a patriot saint of lepers.
Now let me tell just one more example – Judas Iscariot as the number loser of the whole world.
Acts chapter 1 verse 15 to 20, Peter said concerning Judas Iscariot; he says this man was with us, he obtained the same ministry with us, he cast out demons, he performs miracles but he ended up committing suicide.
What do all these people have in common?
Sin – that is all.
You see, the Bible says in Isaiah 59 verses 1 and 2, he said, the hand of the Lord is not shorten that He cannot save; neither His ear heavy that He cannot hear;
But he said sin, sin can separate between you and your God.
Take the example of a young man called Joseph in Genesis chapter 39 (you can read the story there)
Joseph was born to be great
God showed him while he was still young that every member of his family will come and bow down before for him
The brethren became angry; this is not going to happen; they said they will kill him before they see it happening;
And God moved him from one step to another –
They sold him into slavery; got to the house of Potiphar and he was doing wonderfully well there.
And one day the wife of Potiphar looked at him and says this handsome young man come and lay with me.
You know what Joseph said, how can I do this thing and sin against God?
He said to the woman, don’t truncate my destiny.
Listen to me those of you who are still living in sin, you are born to be great but you may never become great unless you get rid of sin in your life.
The beauty thing is, the word of God says in 1John chapter 1 verse 7: the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all sins; all sins!
So when you come to Jesus and His blood washes away your sins then your way to greatness is open.
But if you refuse to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, you continue in your sin, you will only be hearing of greatness, you won’t make it.
I will tell you a story and I won’t mention names – you put two and two together you may get the answer.
One great humanly speaking man in Nigeria was pursuing a particular project and I was minding my own business –
Small boy, minding his own business, when God spoke to me and said: so so so so wants to become so so so so and it can only be if he will surrender his life to Me.
I said, what do You want me to do about it?
He said tell him.
Haa!
How will I be able to tell him; I cannot reach him?
He said I know.
But you can reach those who can reach him.
Okay.
So I told somebody that I know can reach him
And they reached him and they told him what I said.
You know what he said?
He said that will be difficult.
I say fine; I have done my assignment.
He touched the goal but he never got it.
He saw the thrown but he never sat on it.
Sin is an insulator; it can block your way to greatness.
So if you are here tonight and you have not yet surrender your life to Jesus Christ and you want the blood of Jesus to wash away your sins so that your way to greatness can be open.
I am going to count from one to ten and before I say ten run and come and stand before me.

Thank you very much.
The man called William Shakespeare wrote in one of his place
He said some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.
I repeat: some are born great, some achieve greatness (that is they become great as result of their own efforts),
And some have greatness thrust upon them (I mean they were not preparing for greatness but circumstance took greatness and landed it on them)
And you will find all these categories in the Bible.
Let us start with those who are born great:
Jacob before he was born at all – in Roman chapter 9 from verse 10 to 13, the Bible says when the mother was pregnant and there were twins in the womb;
Two children of the same mother, in the womb at the same time; they have not done good or bad, they were not yet born but God had already said the elder will serve the younger.
He said because Jacob I love, Esau I hate.
When we talk about being born great, the elders (the African elders) they have a proverb, they said the Elephant never gives birth to a dwarf; they said the child of an Elephant will be like an elephant
The day the child of an elephant is born he is already bigger than a goat – born great.
The day the child of a lion is born, a king is born.
It may look small; you may even be able to play with it if the mother is not around but a king is born.
Before Samson was born in Judges Chapter 13 from verse 2 to 5, God had already said a deliverer is about to be born.
By the time Solomon was born in 2Samuel chapter 12 verse 24 to 25 the Bible said, the moment Solomon landed in this world God loved him.
So it is not wonder that he ended up being great; he was loved even before he landed.
And do you know the reason you have survived till this day that all the efforts of the enemies to kill you in your mother’s womb; kill you the moment you landed; kill you while you were in primary school etcetera etcetera
The reason you survived it all is because God loves you.
And because He loves you the Bible says you are more than a conqueror.
You are born to be great.
And then he says some people achieve greatness.
And we can have one or two example very quickly
I will try to be as brief as possible but there is a lot to be said tonight.
Elijah was not born great –
In 1Kings chapter 17 verse 1, the Bible said Elijah the Tishbite of the habitants of Gilead;
It did not mention his father’s name because his father name did not mean anything. He was born nobody.
But before Elijah died he became a terror to a king
You know the story, 1Kings chapter 21 verse 16 to 27 – when king Ahab saw Elijah coming he said you find me my enemy; he said I have found you
He was born a no body but several times he called down fire from heaven;
He achieved greatness.
There was a man of God, many of you will know him, when he was born he was so sickly that at a stage the mother got fed up with him and went a drop him on the dunghill; if you want to die, die; stop giving me trouble.
After three days the mother went to find out – is he already dead; has dog finished him! – and find that he was still breathing.
Okay!
So she took him back home.
Some of you don’t know who I am talking about – is the late Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa.
He shook the world, the gospel world; shook the world for Jesus Christ; he achieved greatness.
Or you consider David.
David was an unwanted child – you know his story.
The day they wanted to anoint king in his father’s house they did not even bring him forward.
But a came after he had finish lion, finish bear, finish goliath, long after he died a day came when Jesus was passing by and Bartimaeus said Jesus thou son of David
He achieved greatness.
Let me decree to somebody here tonight that in the Name that is above every other name, you will achieve greatness.
And then Shakespeare says there are some who had greatness thrust upon them – they were not looking for it; it was greatness that pursues them and overtook them.
I give you just two examples: Elisha
Elisha was minding his own business as a farmer – 1Kings chapter 19 from verse 19 to 21 – when all of a sudden a prophet was passing by and threw his mantle upon him.
Elisha was not asking for greatness, the greatness was thrust upon him.
I am talking of a man who became so powerful that when a king wanted to arrest him he sent a whole army and the army came and Elisha arrested them.
You want to read about Elisha, get my book: Arresting the Arresters tells; you will read the story about Elisha.
What about Peter – it is another example – he was a fisherman.
All he wanted to be in life was a fisherman but one day Jesus stepped into his boat and change his story.
In the Name that is above every other names Jesus will step into your boat tonight.
He had greatness thrust upon him.
I was not planning to be a pastor – Pastor!
If the day I got born again and some told me I was going to become a Pastor I would have backslide immediately without any doubt at all.
When my father-in-the-Lord finally told me couple of years later that I was going to be ordain a Pastor;
My wife and I we fasted for fourteen days praying to God that it will not happen.
Fourteen days!
Who wanted to be a pastor?
But then I have told you the story that once upon a time I went to a nation and then somehow I manage to see the President on Monday morning and he was supposed to see me for fifteen minutes;
Two hours later we were still drinking tea and talking; and he was supposed to be having cabinet meeting.
And one of his ministers’ say who is this fellow that is keeping the president busy on Monday morning?
And they said he is a Pastor from Nigeria.
He said, Pastor!
He is not even a Bishop.
Let me decree to somebody today, you will be great.
The Bible says when you become born again all things change.
2Corithinans chapter 5 verse 17 says therefore if any man be in Christ is a new creature; old things have passed away all things have become new.
You know the meaning of that even if you were not born again before or if you were not born great before the moment you surrender your life to Jesus Christ everything will change.
You become born great
Why?
Because you have a new Father.
John chapter 1 verse 11 t 12 says He came unto His own, His own received Him not but as many that received Him to them gave the power to become sons of God.
The day you become born again you have a new father.
Nobody may know your father’s name but the moment you are born again you become a child of God and your father, your new Father is called the most High – Psalm 91 verse 1
Psalm 91 verse 1 – he that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Your Father is higher than the highest.
I have told you the story before of four boys who were playing at the Presidential lodge and as usual they began to boost about their fathers.
And the son of the President said my father is the greatest because my father is the head of state.
The second boy said but my father is greater than you father
He said how can that be?
He said because my father is your father’s physician; if he ask you father to stay in bed for one week, your father must obey.
The third boy said but my father is greater than the two fathers.
They said how come?
He said because my father is the witch-doctor looking after your fathers; he can kill your fathers.
And the forth boy whose father is a messenger said but my father is the greatest of all.
They looked at him say ha ha everybody is talking and you are talking.
He said because my father – not only can he kill but he can make alive.
They said we know your father
He said know you don’t know my father
I am talking about my Father in heaven – He can kill, He can make alive.
When you are born again you become the son of the most High God.
Every born again child of God let me hear you shout hallelujah.
Like the man who spoke before me said if you are born again you bear His name.
When you name a child you name him after his father.
And so you can use that name to clear obstacles…
Haa thank You Father.
The Lord said there is someone here who has been dreaming of coffins recently; coffin of different sizes – small, big, medium – and you are worried; Daddy asked me to tell that the coffins are not for you or your family.
Acts 11 verse 26 says that followers of Jesus Christ were called Christians in Antioch
Christian means someone belonging to Christ
You have your father’s name, you are a child of God and you can use that name.
And like the one who spoke before me said is a name that is above every other name; at the name of Jesus every knee must bow.
And like he told you, I have told you series of story about the power in the name of Jesus Christ – use it to cast out demons etcetera etcetera
I have told you the story of an America who wanted to come to our convention and decided to go through via Kenya;
He did not get the ticket of Nigeria before he got to Kenya;
Went to the embassy and they sat him there for a long time;
After hours somebody in the embassy say to him where do you say you are going anyway?
He said I am going to convention.
He said which convention?
The convention of the Redeemed Christian Church of God
Which Redeem are you talking about?
Of Pastor Adeboye
Haa!
Why didn’t you say that at the beginning?
He said wait.
He went away, provided him with a big cup of tea and brought him some sandwiches and while he was eating fifteen minutes later his visa was ready because he mention a name
Somebody who wants to be great let me hear you shout Jesus.
When you are a Christian the blood of Jesus is flowing through you.
Because in John chapter 15 verse 5 He said I Am the vine you are the branches.
It is the blood that flows in the Vine that flows in the branches and there is tremendous power in the blood of Jesus Christ.
It is the blood according to Revelation chapter 12 from verse 10 to 11, is the blood that guarantees your victory over Satan.
So when you are born again you have a new father and so because you are a child of the Greatest you must become great.
And then if you are a child of God because of your new father, it becomes easy for you to achieve the greatness.
Why?
Because your father is the Almighty
In Jeremiah 32 verse 27, He said I AM the God of all flesh is anything too hard for Me?
In Luke chapter 1 verse 27 He said for with God nothing shall be impossible.
If God is your father, there is nothing you want to do that you cannot do.
Jesus Himself said in Mark chapter 9 verse 23: He said if only you can believe all things are possible for him that believes.
I pray in the name that is above every other name from now on no more impossibility for you.
Your father has been existing before mountains
That is while he said in Mark chapter 11 verse 22 to 23, He said you can command mountains to move and they will move.
Talking about achieving greatness you can command mountains to move.
Your Father’s dress heals the sick – Mark chapter 5…
Thank You Father.
I want to say amen to this before I tell you
Because Daddy says there is someone here tonight He said if nobody else will help you, I will.
Oh thank You Daddy.
I am grateful Lord.
The Lord asks me to tell somebody, He said I have told you before relax the storms will soon be over.
Your Father’s dress heals the sick – Mark chapter 5 verse 25 to 34
The woman with the issue said if I can just touch the hem of the garment of your Daddy, she said I will be made whole and she was made whole.
And so your own handkerchiefs can heal the sick also.
Acts chapter 19 verse 11 to 12, God performs special miracles through Paul.
If He can do it through Paul, He can do it through you
You can achieve greatness.
I have never forgotten the testimony of one of my daughters whose friend had cancer of the breast and she went there to the hospital; they were going to cut off the breast completely;
And said no problem you do what you need to do but let me drop this handkerchief on her before you take her for surgery;
She cried to the Almighty God: You are the miracle God, this handkerchief is coming from Your son, perform a miracle.
They cut of the breast; within three weeks a brand new one grew.
That God is your God; is no respecter of nobody.
I told you before I say very soon you my children everywhere you go miracles will begin to happen.
Some of you thought it was a joke that I was talking sweet until I read about that girl in Akure about a month or so ago who cause pandemonium in the whole town because she just went about healing the sick.
Your testimony will be greater than that.
You know in Mark chapter 4 verse 35 to 41, your Daddy decreed peace;
There was a storm and they woke up your Daddy, He said what is the trouble really?
They said can’t you see the storm, we are about to drown.
Okay, peace be still
And immediately everything was calm.
And you know it written in the Bible Job 22 verse 21 to 28, it says you too can decree a thing and it will be establish unto you.
In John 14 verse 12, He said the works that I do you shall do also and greater works than these shall you do.
It was Jesus who said so.
And just like my son who spoke before me said, the beauty of it is that wherever you go you carry the name of Jesus with you;
You cannot forget the name at home, anywhere you are the name is there.
So when you face a mountain you move it by using the name.
And he told you story about how he commanded a plane not to move until he got in.
When I heard the story I smiled;
Maybe you did not see me here I was listening to everything.
Because I have told you the story, I went to Ghana years ago, several years ago.
I finished what I was doing; my children that escorted me to the airport and since I was coming to Nigeria my car will be waiting to take me home and I emptied my pocket – I gave them all the money I had.
They left.
And I went to sit down in the waiting room and then they announced that the plane that was to take us to Nigerian will first of all take some people to Sierra-Leone and then come back for us.
I had no money on me and I was hungry.
There is a different between being hungry and fasting.
Those of you who know me when I fast I fast and when I eat, I eat.
I know some of you believe that I don’t eat.
Alright!
Invite me to your house.
Prepare big bowl pounded yam with combination okro soup and put all manners of meat there and in your dining room you will see the glory of God as a mountain will become a valley.
I may not have money put I have good appetite.
Those of you who can eat let me hear you shout hallelujah.
Those of you who cannot eat from tonight onward you will be able to eat in Jesus name.
So I was hungry; I had no money and I made a decree: I say all the senior officials of Ghana Airways, you will have no rest until I leave this place in Jesus name.
Few minutes later, every one of them in the senior something came rushing upstairs where we were seating;
Where are those going to Nigeria?
We said we are here.
As anybody give you something to eat?
We said no.
We have no food except this cake.
Half a cake is better than nothing and they slide the cake into pieces and gave each one of us one one slice;
Because I was hungry…, they gave us a bottle of coke;
Because I was hungry I finished that thing in a jiffy.
And the leader of the team came to me and said there is only one slice left, do you want more?
I said haa!
He gave me the last slice
And just as I was about to finish that they said the plane that was to go to Sierra-Leone will go to Nigeria first.
I say ehen, no you want to rest.
Every obstruction to your greatness, I decree tonight will be move in Jesus name.
Now, as for greatness being thrust upon you; what you need to do read Acts of Apostle chapter 1 verse 8, it says you will receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you.
What is power?
Power is ability to do work.
Power is ability to achieve mighty things.
I mean like Acts of the Apostles chapter 8 verse 5 to 8, He talks about a young boy called Stephen
He was not thinking of greatness; he just joined a church and then he became filled with the Holy Spirit and they chose him to be an usher;
The called them deacon but he was to distribute food – he was an usher.
But then situation came that moved him out of the city into Samaria and he got there miracles began to happen.
In the Name that is above every other name, from tonight onward everywhere you go miracles will follow.
So, what am I trying to say?
If you are child of God because your Father is great, you are born to be great.
You might be a little lion like that beautiful song that the choir rendered but one day you are going to be like your Father – the big lion.
So you must pursue greatness vigorously; don’t settle for anything less.
Habakkuk chapter 2 verse 2 says you are to run with a vision
You must be willing to work hard for greatness.
Proverbs 22 verse 29 says seest thou a man diligent in his business? he will stand before kings and not before mean men.
You say I cannot see greatness around me
Hey, take the little you have and multiply it.
Remember the story of the talents – Matthew chapter 25 …
Thank You Father.
The Lord says there is someone here who had been pursuing something for a long time; He asked me to tell you that before the end of this year you will say at last.
At last!
At last!
Almighty God let that be me.
Daddy asks me explain something:
You know the word ‘wonderful’ is a combination of two words – wonder and full.
And a wonder; like somebody defined it years ago; he said a wonder is that which causes you to wonder.
That is a very funny interpretation.
But a wonder is actually that which causes you to open your mouth without wanting to.
A wonder is something that causes you to say haa!
Daddy asks me to tell somebody that very very soon a miracle is coming your way that will cause you to say ‘haa!’
Pursue greatness vigorously.
Like the brother who spoke before me said, be willing to pay the price for greatness.
Refuse to die small.
I have shared a story with you before – of Esau;
The day the father blessed his brother; the blessing that was met for him went to the brother.
When he came back he said haa, father, you said you have blessed my brother; he has stolen my blessing and his Papa said yes and he shall be blessed
He said okay
Have you no reserved blessing?
The father said I have already made him your lord.
Don’t you have anything left at all?
Don’t you have a left over blessing?
The father said you are going to serve him
But all the same when you are strong you will break the yoke off your neck.
He said fine; that is enough.
And he ran with that remnant of blessing; he began to work vigorously; he refused to die small.
Years past, Jacob who ran away from home was coming back and he sent a message to his brother with all kinds of gifts:
Go and tell my brother Esau that I am coming back home; hopefully with all this gifts he will look at me with favour.
And those people came back and said your brother is coming and he is coming with four hundred body guards.
Jacob said I am finished.
It was Jacob who had the big blessing; Esau got only a remnant
But the day Jacob had Esau was coming it was Jacob who was trembling not Esau.
I decree today that all those who think you will never become great will see you coming and they will tremble.
Esau came and he said what is the meaning of all these goats and sheep and…?
And Jacob said there are for you sir so that you can favour me
He looked at him and says I have enough; keep your own.
Everyone who thought you are going to come to them begging, in the Name that is above every other name, you will tell them I have more than you.
You must work for greatness.
You have to work hard; work hard; work hard.
I have told you my story again and again.
One of these days some of you will come and visit me at home, my village, and you will see for yourself.
I looked at my situation, my father was so poor and poor people called him poor and yet he had two wives and many children
I looked at the farm; this farm that was not enough to support my father, when he dies they are going to divide it among us;
I made up my mind I refuse to die in poverty.
Whatever is going to cost and I knew the only way out is to study – if I can just study.
I studied.
I gained admission to Ilesha Grammar school.
My mother, when the result came, called me inside the room and said you boy what are you trying to do?
You want to expose us to ridicule?
You know we had no money and you say you want to go to the grammar school?
And she said please my boy Christmas is coming I will buy a good dress forget about this
I said I don’t want Christmas dress; I want to go to school.
She said we have no money
I said you will find the money.
I am talking of 1955 so you will know how young I must be.
I told her I will not eat until you pay my deposit.
She thought I was joking.
First day I did not eat anything;
Second day I refuse to eat;
By the third day since I happen to be the only son she had;
Between her and my father they got the money for deposit.
And I kept on; through one method or the other I finished secondary school and I then gained admission into the University
And one school in Ondo State said we will sponsor you to go and study but they said they needed somebody for Mathematics
But English was my best subject but they need somebody for Mathematics.
Haha I am good in Mathematics too
So they said they will sponsor me for Mathematics but after my school I must come back and come and serve them for five years
I say no problem
I graduated, I went, I started serving; after two and the half years I became restless –
I am getting old; I don’t want to stop with B.Sc!
So I gained admission for M.Sc and I begged them let me go for Masters and after masters I will come back and finish my bond.
They never believed me
I came to the University of Lagos, finished my masters, ran back to go and serve them;
I became an embracement to them because I have bigger degree than my Principal; they never thought I will come back.
After another one and half years I said please let me go and finish my P.hD; I will come back
They say, go and don’t come back.
You will be great.
But you must be willing to pay the price
I told you before I was reading the Bible one day and I came across 1Corinthians chapter 12 verse 31 where its say covet earnestly the best gifts
So I am allowed to be covetous when it comes to spiritual gifts
I lifted my voice to the Almighty God I said Father, I want double the portion of anointing of Elisha plus double the portion of the anointing of Peter plus double the portion of anointing of Paul plus double the portion anointing of the Lord Jesus Christ when He was here;
Add everything together and double it again.
And God said to me; and He will speak to you tonight; He said My son you have asked for a dangerous thing
If I give you what you are asking for they won’t let you rest
I said that is a good problem; just double the anointing.
Let me ask you tonight: how great do you want to be?
Ordinarily great?
Very great?
Extremely great?
May God grant your request.
I am about to close with what I shared with those who came to Hoy Communion last night.
I told them, I said where there is a state function and it is time for entertainment they will ask some people to go to the head of states should go to a particular place
And then may be the governors and so on go to another place
And then may be commissioners will go to another place
Then they will say all others you stay where you are and we will give you something to carry home.
I told them when you go to some of these functions…; because I know some of you have never been there but very soon they will be inviting you;
…that on your invitation cards they put some letters so that when the time comes to separate – the great from the small – it will be easy.
On some invitation cards they put letter C
On some they put letter B
And then on some they put letter A.
So when you get a card with letter A you feel I am important until you see a card with letter AA then you see that A passes A
And at times you see a card with letter AAA
What kind of card do you want?
Let me hear you shout hallelujah.
Before you pray because I am convinced beyond all doubt that God who gave me the theme for tonight has something in store for you.
Please when you become great don’t forget God.
Because you are going to be great and there is nothing the devil can do about it now.
When you become great don’t forget God.
Solomon was born great; he achieved greatness but at the end of his life he said vanity upon vanity all is vanity.
King Saul he was not born great but he had greatness thrust upon him
But when he became great he forgot God and ended upon a madman.
It is the end that matters; when you become great please don’t forget God.
I want you to write down the following prayer points so that you can talk to God tonight:
Number one: I want you to thank the Almighty God for loving you, for saving your soul and for bringing you into His family.
And then number two: You lift your voice to Him and say: Father, please don’t let me sell my birthright. I am born to be great, don’t let me sell my birthright of greatness.
Number three: You will say Father please help me to achieve greatness that You plan for me. everything I need to become great please make available.
Number four: Father, please anoint me mightily for superior greatness; not ordinary greatness, superior greatness.
Number five: Say Father please when I do become great do not let me disappoint You.
Number six: Father, let me end well.
And number seven: Is your own individual request.
The altar is open; I am going to give you an opportunity for thirty good minutes tonight to cry to the Almighty God on these points that I have listed for you.
Thank Him for loving you, saving you, for receiving you into His family; ask Him not to allow you sell your birth right of greatness; ask Him to help you achieve greatness that He planned for you; ask Him to anoint you mightily for superior greatness; ask Him to help you so that when you become great you won’t disappoint Him; ask Him to help you so that you can finish well.
Talk to the Lord now.
This year you will suffer no lose

JESUS

PRAYER FOR AUGUST CHILDREN:

Those of you who are August Children, you can stand now I want to pray for you.

If you are born in the month of August, let me hear you shout halleluiah!  Father i want to commit into your hands your children born in the month of august, the eight month of the year.

Because eight is the number of a new beginning, everyone of them give them a new beginning; a new beginning of joy, a new beginning of success, a new beginning of progress, a new beginning of anointing. A new begging of a closer work with God let it be well with them and let them serve you till the end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen.

 

Between last night and 6pm this evening, God gave us additional eighteen babies; nine boys and nine girls.

Let the boys shout praise the Lord and let the girls shout halleluiah! So right now the total number of children born during this convention stands at seventy two.

The girls are still leading; thirty five boys, thirty seven girls. Don’t worry boys we will catch up with them.

 

By the special grace of God, next month Holy Ghost service are for those who are believing God for the fruit of the womb and for those who think they are not as productive as they could be in their various endeavors.

The theme for the Holy Ghost service next month is “GOD WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH”. So next month Holy Ghost service is for fruitfulness.

I have permission from my Daddy to inform you about the Holy Ghost congress coming, from December 16-22 and the theme is “THE OVER FLOW”

Because September is a special one for those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, there will be no Shiloh Hour in December, but there will be Divine Encounter and Shiloh hour next Monday in this place.

Now if you look around you, you will see that not only are the road block by human beings; right left back of the auditorium, you will noticed that where there used to be field to my right, to my left and to my back, they are all covered by people.

Now that tells us one thing; we can no longer delay the construction of the new auditorium.

And the new auditorium cannot be a small one, because even if we have double this auditorium this night, it is already full. I want you to join your faith with mine for the new auditorium that will be three kilometers long and three kilometers wide.

How many of you believed that Jesus will do it? if you believe He will do it let me hear you shout halleluiah! You see because I want you to imagine, what could we have done tonight if it had rain? we would have had a crisis.

So we need a new auditorium urgently and by the grace of God it should be ready this time next year.

How many will join hands with me to build it, because it is going to be very soon, it is going to be more than four times the one we are in now, that is why number one I want to call on those of you who believed you are in the top ten, who by the grace of God can give one billion naira, such people should see my secretary tonight for a very special announcement.

And then there will be some of you who can say I wished I can give a billion but all I can afford is hundred million; such people should also see my secretary after the program tonight.

Then there will be those of us who can give twenty million, fifty million, ten million and five hundred thousand all the way to one hundred naira. I want you to have part in this coming auditorium.

The present one was built by God and God alone.

He wants to use all of us now to build the next one. So I want you to make a decision right now; what will be your contribution towards the new auditorium, I won’t ask you to begin to write on a piece of paper, all i want you to do is to decide within yourself what you want to give and whatever you decide to do, please do it urgently because by the next dry season the work should begin.

How many of you will God trust for this great assignment?

By the special grace of God i will see you in the new auditorium in next year’s convention.

But this time we have to go all out, this is not a small assignment. This is not the time you just give a little; you give the very best unto the Lord.

And am going to need your prayers that my faith will not shake, will you pray for me? Your own faith also will not be shaken in Jesus name.

 

MESSAGE: JESUS

2 Corinthians 5 v 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things have passed away behold all things have become new.

If there is any single word that symbolizes Jesus, it is the word CHANGE.

Which is why I want to appeal to those of you who are listening by the Internet or the television, if you don’t want a change in your life, switch off right now.

Because I am believing the Most High God that tonight you will encounter Jesus and when you encounter Jesus, there must be a change.

Everything about Jesus Christ spells change. From the moment He was born into this world; change, change, change.

Even the calendar changed; from the moment He came they began to talk about years before Christ and the years after Christ.

When He came by virgin birth, He changed all the rules concerning childbirth.

That is why menopause or no menopause means nothing to Him. That is why you could hear the testimony of a fifty six years old woman lifting up a brand new baby.

Because He says He can bring children out of stones. From the moment He came, walking on water, He changed everything about the law of gravity.

The law that says everything that goes up must come down has nothing to do with Jesus. You encounter Jesus, you go up, you will stay up.

The moment He came, you can boldly say I shall be above only and never beneath.

You encounter Jesus from the moment He came and he changed water into wine, it became clear that if you are linked to Him, you will never be ashamed.

Everything about Him spelt change.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you, relax they will not succeed in disgracing you.

So if I say Jesus, you can clearly answer me and say change, if i say change, you can say Jesus, maybe we should try;

Jesus!

Change.

Change!

Jesus.

Let’s do it again, because as you are saying it, changes are beginning in your life.

Jesus!

Change.

Jesus never leaves a man the way He met Him. In John 5 v 2-9 He met a man who has been sick for thirty eight years, He changed everything; He put an end to his sickness, He put an end to his bondage, He put an end to his loneliness, He changed his level.

The one who used to sleep among sick people, when Jesus met him, He changed his level. I am going to call the name Jesus, and you are going to say NEW LEVEL;

JESUS. Jesus;

NEW LEVEL.

I want you to understand one thing, am not joking here tonight, am sure by now you know am not a joker, you know that whatever am doing, am doing it under the direction of God and God has said, as I hear in my hears so will i do unto you.

So when i asked you to say something and you are saying it, you are saying it concerning yourself, so when i say Jesus; and you say new level, before next month you will testify.

So may I say

Jesus;

New level.

Jesus;

New level.

He met a man who was possessed by 6,000 demons, living in a tomb but Jesus will never leave you the way He met you.

I prophesy to someone here tonight, where ever you are tonight, that is the lowest you will ever be in your life.

He met this man thoroughly mad, living in a grave yard, by the time He left him, He was totally free. His destiny that was truncated has been restored. He was on a new level.

Now when I say Jesus next time, i want you to shout total freedom.

That is if you want it;

Jesus;

Total freedom!

Total freedom;

Jesus.

Next time I shout halleluiah! I want you to shout complete restoration,

Jesus!

Complete restoration!!

Complete restoration,

Jesus!

The devil is in trouble tonight, can I hear somebody shout halleluiah!

In Luke 7 v 11-15 He met a woman a widow who had lost her only son and was going to bury the son, when Jesus met her, He changed everything the direction to the grave yard changed.

Sorrow became joy, tears became laughter.

And when I shout Jesus, be careful how you answer this time, when I shout Jesusi want you to respond New direction.

Jesus;

New direction.

New direction;

Jesus.

Next time when I shout Jesus; I want you to shout fullness of joy. That is for only some few people to shout this one.

Jesus;

Fullness of Joy.

In Mark 5 35v 43 Jesus came to Jarius’s house and they told Jarius, its already too late. Jesus say no when i come on the scene, too late becomes not too late.

I beg you tonight, next time i say Jesus loud and clear, I want you to say “my time has come”.

Jesus;

My time has come.

Put your hands together to the Almighty.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, just trust me; I will reverse the irreversible for you.

The focus of Jesus is not your circumstances, His focus is on you. He can do anything, all power belong to Him.

In all these years that I have been working with Him, I have seen Him in action.

I have worked with Him now for more than forty years.

If anybody says there is something Jesus cannot do, I will say the fellow is a fool. He can cure the incurable, He can raise the dead, He can make the lame to walk; we saw one yesterday.

He can make dry bone rise again; we saw one yesterday. He can bring water to come out of the rock; you can see evidence all around you.

I have seen Him in action; I have seen people they say can never have a baby; giving birth to twins, triplet and four and five.

But as powerful as God is, there is something you can call spiritual insulator.

We all know how powerful an electricity can be, you touch a naked wire; you are dead! powerful.

But the moment we wrap a piece of rubber round it, a child can play with it.

The power is still inside but the rubber won’t let it come out.

God can do anything, but Isaiah 59 v 1-2 says sin is an insulator. It says the hand of the Lord is not shortened that He cannot save, His ear is not heavy that He cannot hear, He said but your iniquities have separated between you and your God.

That is why He came; to remove the insulator. He came to wash away sin; that the power of God might be able to penetrate.

He came to change the root; He knows if He can change you, everything else about you will change.

There was a witch, very powerful witch and the law of God says thou shall not suffer a witch to live. You find a witch, you kill the witch.

But Jesus came, and they brought the witch, He changed the witch Luke 8 v 1-3,

The name of the witch is Mary Magdalene. Instead of killing her, he changed her and she became a divine treasurer.

Lift your hand to the Almighty God, change me oh Lord!

You have been known as night crawler, we change your name to child of God. He will channel your accommodation, you who have been dwelling among sinners, you will begin to dwell among saints.

Let me tell you the truth; if you truly encounter Jesus, you will lose your old friends because they won’t understand you anymore, because you won’t talk like they talk anymore. You won’t drink what they drink any more, you won’t even dress the way they dressed anymore.

If you encounter Jesus, everything will so change… If you don’t leave your friends, your friends will leave you.

You know my testimony; before I was born again, I have many friends, some of them sailor. When they travel, when they are returning, they bring me all manners of drinks.

So all my friends when they want to drink, they come to visit. They say we can’t pass the house of the king without saying hello to the king. I didn’t know I was king of alcohol.

Then I became born again and when they come; I say what do you drink? I have Coke, I have Fanta, I have this and that.

They will say to me “you know what we drink; scotch on the rock, five fingers”.

Sorry, i don’t serve that anymore. I lost all my old friends, but look at what God has given me in replacement, look to your right, and look to your left.

If you encounter Jesus, he will bring about change.

If you say you have encounter Jesus and there are no changes, it is a pastor you encountered or maybe an evangelist, not Jesus.

When you encounter Jesus, He will change you from a civilian to a soldier.

The Bible says in 2Timothy 2 v 3-4 He says He has chosen you to be soldier.

If you really encounter Jesus; you will no longer be running from forces of darkness, because if you encounter Him, He said in his word, these sign shall follow them that believe, in my name they will cast out demons.

You will be the one driving them out; they won’t be one frightening you.

You haven’t encounter Jesus, if you say you afraid of witches and wizard and herbalist. If you encounter Him, you will become a warrior with the backing of the Lord of Hosts.

I have told you the story before; some of my children went to hold crusade, somewhere in this country and as they were getting ready, the masquerade in the city came out to disturb them; canning people, beating their drums loudly.

One small girl said I know what my daddy thought me, she moved aside; because it is known that if masquerade comes out and the drums that they are beating after him should break, that masquerade will not come out next year, he will be dead.

This little girl moved aside and said in the name of Jesus, every drum break!

And one by one and by one the drums began to break and the masquerade ran away.

I want you to lift your voice high to the Almighty, and say in the name of Jesus every demon disturbing my life; scatter right now… so shall it be in Jesus name.

When you encounter Jesus He will not only changes you, He will turn you to a change agent.

When He changes you, He expects you to change your city. John 4 v 1-42 a woman had married five times, divorced five times, the sixth time she didn’t even bother about marriage.

She encountered Jesus, Jesus changed her, she changed her city. How can you say you have been born again for ten years and your village, your town remain the way they are?.

No matter how tiny the light is, the light will shine in darkness and darkness will not overcome it.

He changes you, so you can change your country. Look at how many of us who are here, if we take our stand in Jesus Christ seriously, if we really had genuine encounter with Jesus, we are more than enough to change this nation.

When He changes you, He wants you to change the world. But, most importantly He wants to change your final destination.

Every sinner is heading for hell, Psalm 9 v 17 He said the wicked shall be turn to hell but Jesus came and said no, let’s move you towards heaven instead.

But do you know the shocking thing? It is that He won’t force you to change; He won’t force you to go to heaven. You don’t have to go to heaven.

I was talking to one big man not too long ago, we were talking and he kept on arguing, so I said sir, there is no quarrel you don’t have to go to heaven.

If you want to go to hell, the choice is yours.

He said then why are you begging me to be born again, why are you begging me to give my life to Jesus, I Laughed, I said begging? am not begging you, am warning you! But if you want to go to hell; bye, bye.

There were two thieves on the cross, nailed with Jesus Christ both of them heading for hell, Jesus stood in their midst and one began to ridicule Him; I thought they say you are a prophet why don’t you deliver yourself and deliver us here?

The second one said, you are on your way to hell and you are still talking like this?

He turned to Jesus and said “I don’t know if it is too late but if you get to your kingdom, if you can remember me, I will be grateful”

At that very moment change came. Jesus said you are destined for hell but I take you to heaven.

Jesus means change, but He won’t force you. And believe me honestly I am not begging you either but am warning you.

The Bible says when we consider the terror of the Lord, we persuade men. Am sure you want to ask me, pastor, have you been to hell before?

no! Am not going there at all

But in 1980, I asked the Lord to give me a glimpse of hell. He said son, I won’t give you one, I will give you three; I don’t have the time to tell you the three I will tell you just one.

Some of you will remember the incident; there was fuel shortage in Lagos so the Molue drivers were buying petrol in Jerry cans.

One day, a bus was going to Lagos, He stopped at a bus-stop and dropped a woman but the son of the woman was going to school in the same bus, as the bus climbed over Yaba bridge, it lost control and fell on the side of the door and caught fire.

The boy inside the bus was crying my mother, mother! till he burnt to death and the Lord told me, “in HELL people will cry for help but there will be nobody to help them”.

I pray for you my brothers and sisters; you will never go to hell in Jesus name.

Jesus means change! He will change the sick to the healed. He will change the bound to the freed; He will change failure to success. Change sorrow to joy and changed hell to heaven.

But let me conclude with this; you can’t discuss Jesus completely in one hour, if you decide to have an encounter with Jesus, you must be willing to come under a new management.

He said come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy lade, I will give you rest, but you must take my yoke upon you.

If I say Jesus, your answer should be new management, before you encounter Jesus; your affairs were managed by Satan and yourself.

When you give your life to Jesus, when you encounter Jesus, there can be only one master left and His name must be Jesus.

My father used to say whoever is your master is the one who will take care of you with whatever he has.

If Satan is your master he will take care of you with sickness. With fear, with night mares with all kinds of problem.

If Jesus is your master He will take care of you with health, with joy, with peace, with all manner of blessings.

So before you answer me this time think, because when I say Jesus this time, the answer this time the answer must be new management.

And if you don’t want a new management, don’t answer me.

Jesus;

new management.

New management;

Jesus.

As the Almighty God lives who has called me and sent me to you, you will never spend for Satan again, you will never serve Satan again. Demons will see you from now on and run in Jesus name.

I tell you one story and I will close; some of you know the story; I was invited by a king to come and preach at his thanks giving.

I went and as I was getting ready, his chiefs began to come, dressed in their regalia of their various secret societies, the ushers saw them coming and ran to me, sir are we going to allow these people in the church?

I said of course, put them on the front row; where Jesus will be able to reach them quickly and I changed my sermon immediately.

You see many of you think that Jesus is just a lamb, He is also the lion of Judah. I preached a kind of sermon I had not prepared to preached.

I preached about mount Carmel, confrontation between Elijah and the prophet of Baal, by the time I finished, because I know who my master is, I said am challenging everyone of you, if you can use all your powers to make one of my tire go flat, I gave them the number of my car, I said I will surrender to your God.

If you can’t do it you must surrender to my God.

.. . And then I gave the altar call, the second in command to the king, who is the leader of all the secret society was the first one to come forward.

When the other chiefs saw him going, they followed him. after service the king said, E.A lets go and follow this man up maybe he didn’t understand what you said, we got there, Kabeyesi said do you know what you have just done, he said of course, you have surrender your life to Jesus? He said yes.

The king said why? He said ha! you see a small boy like this challenging all of us, who doesn’t know there must be somebody behind him! He said it is the one behind him that i have surrender to.

Tonight am asking you come under a new management. A management of the King of kings, the management of the Lord of lords, the management of the Lord of host, the management of the Everlasting Fathers, the management of the Prince of peace, the management of the One who has never lost a war, the management of the Rock of ages, the management of the One who has no being and has no ending.

And like those of you who have ever heard me tell the story, thirty days later, He was an old man, he died.

ln his life, he had severed the devil, he was heading for hell.

He encountered Jesus thirty days before he died and now he is in heaven.

New management must be your decision tonight I know the altar call has been made before or you have just decided now that I must surrender to this new management.

I know the altar call has been made before, some of us might come late or you have just decided to give your life to Jesus, and you want to surrender to this new management, come to the altar and give your life to Jesus, come under a new management, and you really want to give your life to Christ, come and stand before me and I will pray for your salvation.

As you come begin to call on him and say Father, I want to come under a new management of the Lord Jesus.

I don’t want to have anything to do with the devil anymore, I want you to save my soul and I will serve you from now on.

I told you yesterday, if you don’t want to clap for Jesus don’t clap, if you want to clap then do it with all your might.

He doesn’t want anything lukewarm, you are either cold or you are hot.

As you come begin to pray don’t wait for the others, cry to God and say Lord save my soul, I want to come under a new management, I want to come under the management of the Lord Jesus Christ, I don’t want to have anything to do with the devil any more.

Please stretch your hand towards this people that the Almighty God will give them a brand new beginning and He will change them from sinner to saint and they will never go back into the world.

Pray for them.

Ask the Almighty mighty to save your soul, let him have mercy on you and save your soul…. in Jesus mighty name i have prayed.

Savior I want to thank you for your word, and I want to thank you for all these your children who has come forward tonight, those in front here and those at the various altars, please Lord save their souls in Jesus name.

Let your blood wipe away their sins in Jesus name. Write their names in the books of life in Jesus name. Give everyone of them a new beginning in Jesus name and from now on, any time they call on you; please answer them in Jesus name. Thank you Father, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen

 

Prayer point

Loud and clear, say Father, everything you have to change in me, so that i will make it to heaven, change it tonight; my way of thinking, my way of dressing, the kind of friends, everything you have to change so I can make heaven, change it tonight. Change without a single exception. And if I don’t want it to go gently, change it by force, change me completely…. in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

In that name that is above every other name, every change necessary in your life so that you can make it to heaven, God will do it tonight in Jesus name.

Any association, any link that can make sure you don’t make it to heaven the Almighty God will destroy it tonight.

In the mighty name of Jesus, any change that God needs to make in your life that doesn’t want to happen easily, God will do it by force in Jesus name, so shall it be, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And as usual I know there will be some of you because you are so super spiritual, you may not be interested in what am about to do but am obeying my Daddy and I have discovered that when He asked me to do something that may look foolish to some people, I get results.

You see every miracle you need was purchased for you at the cross. As He hung on the cross, according to Peter 2v 24 the Bible says as He carried your sin on the cross, suddenly His stripes began to make you whole.

As He hung on the cross and the blood began to flow, the Bible says your victory over the devil became available.

He said they overcome the devil by the Blood of the Lamb. As He hung on the cross; completely naked, the Bible says He became poor that you might become rich.

As He hung on the cross, your breakthrough became available.

As He hung on the cross, the Bible says Jesus Christ said if I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.

As they lifted Him up on the cross, your promotion became available.

So Daddy asked me to do something tonight.

If you don’t believe me, don’t participate, He asked me to make a little cross and I obeyed.

This is the cross; it is made of ordinary wood, there is nothing hidden there, there is nothing written on it. It is not even painted because the cross on which Jesus Christ died was not made of gold, it was made of ordinary wood.

Now Daddy asked me to tell you; as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so that those who looked on it were healed, He asked me to lift up this cross and give you some minute to pray.

Whatever you want God to do, ask Him now. Please make sure you asked for the most important one first…. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And then Daddy said to me, it is because of the cross that anointing came, because Jesus said it is expedient for you that I go away, because if I don’t go away the Holy spirit will not come.

So you get out your handkerchief and wave it to the cross. You just pray to the Almighty to let His anointing flow into the handkerchief…. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

When I was waiting on the Lord for this program, He gave me some word for this program because I wrote them down;

1. He said someone will be here tonight, he said by the time I finish with you, every body part of your body will be like brand new.

2. He said there will be someone tonight; He said from now on, I will give you beauty for ashes.

3. He said there will be someone here tonight; He said you will soon know the full meaning of oil of joy.

4. He said there will be someone here tonight, He said you will get a break through very soon that you will know that this is too big. He asked me to tell you, fifty percent of it belongs to Him.

5. Then He says there will be someone here tonight, He said one day truly great men will marvel at your greatness.

6. He also told me, He said because of what am about to do for you, for a whole month, all those who come to your house will be shouting halleluiah!

7. Finally He said to me, He said for the rest of the year, every month you will have a testimony.

 

In the mighty name of Jesus, everything you have asked for tonight, receive the answer in Jesus name.

Everything that Jesus bought for you on the cross, receive it tonight in Jesus name.

Anything that will stand between you and anything you have asked for, may them be destroyed right now in Jesus name and may your testimonies begin this month in Jesus name. So shall it be in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Shout the name of Jesus and I want to hear you say

Change, change;

Jesus,

New beginning;

Jesus,

Absolute joy;

Jesus,

Complete deliverance;

Jesus,

Total health;

Jesus

Mighty breakthroughs;

Jesus,

Heaven at last;

Jesus

Let me hear you shout another halleluiah!

Glory be to God.

GOD WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH

Genesis 21 1-7 And the Lord visited Sarah as He has said, and the Lord did unto Sarah has he had spoken. For Sarah conceived and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to Him. And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac

And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old as God has commanded him. And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. And she said, who will have said unto Abraham that Sarah should have given children suck? For I have born him a son in his old age.

Turn to the neighbor to your right and to the left and say I promise you God will make you laugh.

Sarah said; God has made me to laugh and all who hear will laugh with me.

The story of the laughter of Sarah as you know very well began in Genesis 18 v 1 -14 you will see how one day Abraham  at the age of 99 was seating in front of his house and he looked up and saw three men just passing by.

When they got to the front of his tent, they hesitated for a while, they stood briefly. Abraham looked up and realized that this were not ordinary men, so he ran to meet them, bow down before them and invited them to his house.

He said, come let me give you some water to drink, let me wash your feet and if you don’t mind let me give you some food to eat, because i know that is the reason why you have come to your servant.

And the Almighty God who have said if He is hungry he won’t ask any man, accepted the invitation; went, eat and when He finished eating, He decided to say thank you to Abraham and the thank you He said was that in nine month time Sarah will have a son.

Sarah heard it and laughed, she laughed because her husband was ninety nine plus, herself was ninety and it was a long time ago that Abraham turned in her direction to say Sarah how now? So she thought that this people must have enjoyed the meal and they were trying to make fun of her, she laughed.

And God asked Sarah why did you laughed, she said I didn’t laugh at all, what you said wasn’t funny, but God said I know you laughed but whether you believe me or not, nine month from now you will have a son.

And what God said came to past, that was why she said God has made me to laugh.

The Lord has sent me at the beginning of the Redeemed year to tell somebody here tonight; The Almighty God will make you to laugh.

God makes you laugh, number one when you get an unexpected divine visitation. It is one thing for a man to visit God, like many of us are doing tonight; we have come to pay God a visit. But it is another thing for God to visit a man.

It is even beautiful enough when God is visiting a congregation, but it is better still when God decided in a large crowd to visit somebody in particular like in John 5 v 2-9 the Bible tells us about the pool of Bethsaida and the multitude of sick people that were there and when Jesus pay that place a visit, He visited only one particular person who has been sick for thirty eight years, and after dealing with the case of that person, He left the place.

I have a feeling deep within me, that there is somebody special tonight here tonight and God is going to pay you a special visit.

In Mark 10 v 46-52 the Bible says Jesus came to Jericho and as He was coming out of Jericho in other words He didn’t do anything in Jericho because the man He came to visit was not inside the city; the man was by the road side begging, so He came out of Jericho, saw that one person, dealt with the problem of that one person and continued with his journey.

I’m going to remind you of some testimonies tonight to encourage you to know that you might be that person that God is interested in.

I have told you the story of a woman whose mother’ in law went to the market and as the mother in law was coming she ran to meet her and the mother law said take, eat and block your womb. And the woman laughed and said what kind of joke is this?

How I can I block my womb with a loaf of bread? And then innocently she went ahead and eat the bread.  And from that day on her menses stopped and of course she became what we will call barren.

Then it happened that we tried to hold a program in their city, Oyo to be specific. And she heard we were coming, she decided to wait on God to pray.

The afternoon we were to arrive she fell asleep and had a dream and saw some men dressed like doctors, came into the room and they operated her and she saw them pulling out a long rope out of her belly, at the end of the rope was a black loaf of bread and they sowed her up and left the room and she woke up.

When she woke up, lo and behold her bed was soaked with blood, her menses had returned. The last I heard concerning her, I think she had five children already.

In the name that is above every other name, if God is going to visit just one person alone, that person will be you.

God makes you laugh; whenever He accepts your offering; Abraham made an offer to God and God accepted. According to Genesis 4 v 3-5 God does not have to accept every offering.

Cain brought an offering, God rejected it. Abel brought an offering and God accepted the offering. Whenever God accept your offerings a miracle will follow.

In 2king 4 v 8-17 the Bible tells us the story of the Shulamite woman who saw the man of God passing by and made an offer; come and eat in my house.

The Bible says the man of God said ‘I don’t need your food but the woman insisted, the Bible says she constrained him, compel him, she restrained him.

To come to her house to eat, the man of God eat and kept coming back. Then the woman said instead of the man of God coming for occasional lunch, let’s build him an apartment so that he can come and stay. And instead of lunch alone, he will be having breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Then one day, God spoke to the man of God saying; you have been eating this woman’s food , when are you going to do something about her problem?

The man of God called her ‘woman what can I do for you?”

She said I don’t need anything, I am comfortable, am well connected. ‘The man of God pressed further and discovered she was barren and the man of God said wonderful! I can give you what money cannot buy.

I am praying for someone here tonight, that thing which you need that will make your joy full, you will receive it tonight in Jesus name.

You know the rest of the story, the man of God said woman you are going to have a son nine month from now. And nine months from then, the son came.

Whenever God accept an offering a miracle follows 2Chronicle 1 v 6-15 the Bible tells us about Solomon offering to God a thousand burnt offering, God was pleased and the Bible said that night God paid Solomon a visit.

I am believing God for someone tonight that before you wake up again, you will get a divine visitation.

I want to encourage you because I know many of you were not here for divine encounter on Monday, I want you to make sure you got the tape for last Monday divine encounter we explain something to you.

Whenever you give God a sacrificial offering, an offering you know is sacrificial, God is bound to respond and usually He responds with a divine visitation.

Years ago as a young Christian, my father in the Lord said there is a great need in the Church that must be met urgently so he called those of us who were workers, those of us who were children of God, he said go and close your account we need the money now.

Monday morning my wife and I went to close our accounts and brought the money.

The following Sunday at the workers meeting, papa said thank God the need was met but how many of you closed your account?

I raised my hand, my wife raised her hand.

We looked round nobody else raised their own hands, and I looked at my wife and a thought came to my mind, I said I hope we have not mixed madness with this thing we have accepted, then I heard God spoke to me.

He said “my son, it is a test; because you have done what nobody has done, when I take you to where nobody has been, nobody will be able to complain”.

There is somebody here tonight; God will take you to somewhere you can never dream of.

When God accept your offering, a miracle will follow!

God makes you laugh, when the All Sufficient One decides to say thank you, He will make sure miracles follow you.

After He accepted the offering of Abraham, He decided to say thank you.

You see in Psalm 50 v 7-12 the Almighty God said if I am hungry I don’t need to tell anyone, He said all the beast of the forest are mine, the cattle on a thousand  hills they are mine.

If I want to eat I can get as much as I want. But then when the One who says He eats nothing, receives an offering from you, particularly an offering you yourself will know it is a sacrificial offering, the Bible says they that sow in tears will reap in joy, and God decides to say thank you. No doubt about it, laughter will follow.

In Luke5 v 1 7 when He borrowed the boat of Peter to preach from the boat, after He finished preaching He asked him to launch into the deep to throw his net.

Peter threw only one net and caught so much fish, his boat and the boat of his friend were full to sinking point.

In John6 v 5-13 the Bible says that there was a multitude, Jesus has been preaching to the multitude and then they were hungry it was time for them to eat and a small boy surrendered his lunch, talk about sacrificial offering!

The boy had just his little lunch but he surrender it to Jesus, after Jesus multiplied the bread and the fish and fed the people there were twelve baskets left over.

I have asked my little children when they were younger, what happened to the twelve basket and fish? And I got various answers and one of the answers I got was that there were twelve apostles, so each apostle got one basket each.

I laughed; then I told then yes there were twelve basket and they were twelve apostles each apostles carried the twelve basket to the house of the boy because the word of God says all rivers run into the sea and the sea is not full, He said because where the river is coming from that is where the water will return.

The boy who made the sacrifice must have gone home with twelve hefty men carrying baskets full of food.

And I’m sure when the mother saw him with all the basket of food, there must have been laughter in that house that day.

There is a house here today where there will be laughter before the end of this month.

When we were building this auditorium, I remember God told me we want to cover this auditorium it was an open space that is why we use to call it arena.

The Lord said to me; son, we are going to cover this place I was happy, glory be to God.

But then He said you are not going to take an offering, you won’t call people together and say give me money towards the auditorium.

How are we going to build it? He said just you and I. Up till that moment I used to consider myself a man of faith, so when God said I will take no offering for this work I ran to the toilet I was frightened!

Well, in His wonderful way He began to send help.

One of the people that He sent, is a Bishop from another organization who came to visit and saw the work in progress and went away and came back with a cheque of (25) million naira and said daddy I must support this work.

He gave me the twenty five million naira I prayed for him from the bottom of my heart, less than six month later he came back with a testimony that in a way he could not described it God replace the twenty five ( 25) million naira for twenty five (25) million dollars.

He will make you laugh.

God makes you laugh, when all his prophecies concerning you become fulfilled in a single day.

God had been talking to Abraham for twenty five years; Abraham, can you count the number of sand, no lord, ‘so shall your children be’.

Abraham, can you count the sand by the sea shore? ‘ No Lord’, “so shall your children be”. Twenty five years!  But in a single day all the prophecy became fulfilled.

Thank you father!

The Lord says there is a lady here, that you felt a sudden movement in your body, He asked me to tell you that demon that has been destroying the seed of your husband has been dealt with.

Numbers 23 v 19 the Bible says God is not a man that He should lie, He is not the son of man that He should repent, once He has spoken it is a settled matter.

And then the Bible says God has a timetable for everything Eccl 3v1- 8, yes when God promises He will bring it to past, but everything at his own season.

However whenever God decide to pay you a special divine visit, whenever God accept your offering, whenever God decide to say thank you, whatever the time that was originally scheduled for the manifestation of the promises will be brought to now.

You see; as far as God is concerned because He is the Alpha and the Beginning as well as Ending, the beginning of time and end of time coincide in Him, if He wants, what He plans to do in ten years’ time, He can do it today and there is no one who can quarry him.

And I’m rejoicing with someone that at long last the time to favor you has come.

God can fulfill His prophecies in a single day.

I have told you the story before the first time we went to Tulsa in 1979 to attend Kenneth Haggins camp meeting, my father in the Lord and five others.

Himself, myself and four other people went to this program on Saturday. Then on Sunday we decided to go and worship in one of the churches nearby, we are there and because we were visitor they allowed us to sit in the front, papa couldn’t understand English, so I was interpreting.

And you know the way the American preacher preaches, they don’t stay in one spot like me, they move around a bit.

And as this preacher was preaching all of a sudden he came down from the altar stood in front of papa and began to say to him: thus said the Lord,

“everything I told you is about to come to past”

then he turned round and went back to the altar and continued preaching.

Papa asked me, ‘what did he say?.

I said when we get home.

Because I want to hear the rest of the sermon.

When we got home, Papa said what did the man said?

I said the man said” “the promises of God for you they are about to come to past”.

Papa began to cry; I waited for him to finish crying, to ask what are the promises?

Then he told me the promises, how the Almighty God told him that through him, he will start a Church and that the church will spread throughout the whole world.

If God says that is about to happen, well! Papa was weeping, I was happy,  I was glad that the Almighty God has brought me to a Church that God said He will spread throughout the whole world.

Less than one year later papa was dying and he called those who were by his death bed and said tell the congregation on Sunday that from now on they will begin to laugh.

That was some thirty something years ago, today by the grace of God; The Redeem Christian church of God is in one hundred and seventy four nations of the world.

God made a promise, He fulfilled his promise and today we are laughing.

We are laughing and I tell you one of the reasons we are laughing. I say this to encourage someone.

I have just returned from a long journey to the far East Malaysia and considering the situation in Malaysia you will understand that I find it incredible to discover that Malaysia now has forty five branches of The Redeemed Christian church of God.

I held a Holy Ghost rally, my children told me they have rented a very big hall I thought they were joking, I got there it was a massive hall, the place was jammed, I gave the altar call two thousand four hundred people gave their lives to Jesus in one night, if that didn’t cause you to laugh I don’t know what will cause you to laugh.

Let me hear some shout halleluiah!

I’m believing God for someone here tonight, all the prophecies that you have been writing down, before the end of this month, all of them will be fulfilled in Jesus name.

God makes you laugh; when He decides to overrule your doubts. Sarah laughed when God spoke and said you are going to have a son, she laughed she didn’t believe,

And it is true that the Bible says the just shall live by faith.

In fact God repeated it four times, Habakkuk 2 v 4, Romans 1 v 17, Galatians 3 v 11 and Hebrews 10 v 38. Four times God said the just shall live by faith. That means living by faith is so important to God that He repeated it four times.

However  God said in Isaiah 43 v 13 He said I will work who will let, in order words God says when I make up My mind that I want to do something, nobody can hinder Me, whether you believe Me or not.

If I say I am going to do something, I will do something. Sarah laughed, what I say I will do, I will do.

I know there might be some people here tonight, who will say I have heard God promised before and nothing has happened, I don’t believe He is going to do anything now.

Well, I have good news for you, tonight in particular it doesn’t matter your doubt, my God will over rule your doubt.

In 2King 4 v 8-17 when Elisha said to the Shunamite woman you will have a son in nine months’ time, she said to the man of God, ‘man of God don’t deceive me’, that means I don’t believe you.

But Elisha didn’t say anything after that one, God has spoken the matter is settled.

I know there might be some of you here who didn’t believe me at all, but I’m not the one who chose the theme for this month, Daddy chose the theme and He has made up His mind that;

There is someone here tonight, you are have been weeping every month, this time you are going to laugh.

Several years ago, a young man came to my office, brought by his friend and said sir, I have a big problem, what is the big problem?

The wife became mad and not only just mad, she is gone completely naked into the street.

And according to Yoruba believe, if somebody is mad and the madness is still within the house it can be handled, but when the madness has taken the madness nakedly to the market place that is madness for life.

So he said the wife has been mad publicly. And they have taken the woman and bundled her to the house of an herbalist somewhere in Kwara State.

So they gave me the address, I went, saw the woman and prayed and the husband was informed that yes I came and I prayed but the prayer didn’t last five minute.

How could five minute prayer deal with something this serious? The husband says let’s take the woman to physiatrist hospital and they took the woman to the specialist hospital, as God will have it, the specialist there says let observe her before we know what we I’ll give her, they observed her for two weeks.

And then they sent for the husband, ‘ sir if you say something is wrong with this woman something is wrong with you, because we have not given her any drug and injection and she is normal as normal can be normal.

I don’t care whether you believe or not tonight, in the name that is above every other names, this month you shall laugh!

God makes you laugh when He turns all His prophecies to a single decree, you see when you are hearing, “thus saith the Lord” that is a prophecy but when the Almighty God just decided that “let there be light” there will be light, there is no need for waiting.

In Psalm 33 v 8-9 the reason the whole earth should fear before God is that whenever He spoke it is done. All He has to do is just say it, and it is done.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said some people are convinced that you are going to drown in sorrow; God says this month I will surprise them.

The Lord asks someone here tonight to get ready for a miracle that will open doors to many other miracles.

Like I said in Genesis 1 v 1-3 the Bible says in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, the earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep and the Spirit of the Lord moves along the face of the water and God said let there be light.

When did the light come?

Immediately!

There was no need to vote on it, there was no delay because God decreed it.

Some of you will remember the testimony; it wasn’t too long ago now when husband and wife stood here to testify.

Two of them came to me and said daddy we are believing God for the fruit of the womb, I said ok what kind of baby do you want?

The husband said a boy; the wife said a girl and they spoke simultaneously. So I said okay maybe we better made it a twin then; one boy and one girl.

Both of them said amen, that was the end of the discussion, nine month later the husband was carrying the boy, the wife was carrying the girl.

Let me ask you tonight, how do you want your babies? So shall it be in Jesus name.

God makes you laugh when He decided to show His Almightiness, He said to Sarah,

He said you laughed,

She said I didn’t laugh,

He said you laughed! He said I know why you laugh;

He said but is anything too hard for the Lord?

Is there anything the Almighty cannot do?

Luke 1 v 37 the Bible says for with God nothing shall be impossible;

He is not talking about with man, He is not talking about with your husband, He is not talking with you pastor, He is not talking with your general overseer, He said with God nothing shall be impossible.

Thank you my Lord, the Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said you’ve had your own share of shame and disgrace, he says get ready for his season of glory.

Thank you Daddy, Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said your progress has been painfully slow he says I promise you, you will be flying.

Matthew 3 v 9 tells us that the God we are talking about is able to produce children out of stones!

That is God, and you are hearing words like this, the enemies tries to tell you what the doctor has said, the condition of your husband, the condition of your wife, the problems in the past, no, take your eyes off men.

Look unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith and He will show you, He is The Almighty.

Maybe I should remind you of the testimony, of a sister who was barren for several years and the relative of the husband called the husband and said to him, stop wasting your time your wife will never have a child.

Forget because the evil ones have tampered with her womb.

And she came to one Holy ghost service like this and the word of God came and said;

There is someone here, they said you will never have a child but the Almighty God said, get ready for a set of twins.

She grabbed it.

The following month she was pregnant, she went to the hospital to check; they said, yes you are pregnant, we don’t know how it happened, but you are pregnant.

She said no, God said twins.

They said okay no argument.

She went back a couple of month later, they checked and say ‘now we can see twins’.

And because they were well off they decided to go abroad for deliveries they don’t want to take chances.

And the husband told the doctors, ‘I don’t  want a situation where they  will say the woman was in labor and one child died, bring out the children, do it by operation, so they put the woman to sleep and brought out the set of twins.

When she woke up she saw everybody looking at her strangely.

She said what is the problem?

Where are my children?  They said no problem your children are fine.

The couple told the doctor, we don’t need more children tie the womb.

The doctor said I have performed more than four thousand deliveries, this is the first time that am seeing a woman deliver a set of twins without a womb, because when they say tie the womb, he searched and said where did I get this children from?

There is no womb!

There is somebody here tonight, it doesn’t matter how hopeless they say your case is God will proof himself to be the Almighty.

God makes you laugh when He makes the impossible possible.

In Jeremiah 32 v 27 He said behold I am the Lord the God of all flesh, is anything too hard for me?

Exodus 17 v 3-6 tells us that this God can bring water out of the rock.

Now I want all of us to please take note, that yes tonight we are focusing on the fruit of the womb but this thing is much more than the fruit of womb; this particular program is for those of you who are tired of fruitless effort.

This is the special night for those of you who are tired of failure.

This is a special night for those people who have tried their best in business, in academic in everything and found that they have labor but they have nothing to show for it.

God will make you laugh.

There is a God who can bring water out of the rock and that God is here tonight, determined to make you laugh.

I tell you a story to encourage you, I told you that several years ago anytime I was visiting London one of my son there who was a taxi driver will come and meet me and take me to where I will stay.

And as we go home along the route there was a place there where they were selling second hand Rolls Royce cars and I will sit in the taxi and look in that direction and say one day I am going to drive one of this thing out of that place and my boy will say amen. (You know the kind of amen)

Keep on dreaming; if you want to deceive yourself go ahead, without my taxi you can’t even get home.

But one day we were passing through the same place and I looked in that direction and say one day and going to drive out one of this Rolls Royce out of that place and he said amen as usual.

Then a little bit down the street there was a shirt where they were selling clothe, they put up a big sign SALE,

So I said let’s stop here I may be able to get some shirts and we got there and I began to look at the shirt, twenty five pounds, thirty pounds, forty pounds, so I said to my son, this stupid people I thought they were doing SALE, let’s go.

As we moved towards the taxi, my boy began to laugh, now I understand why he was laughing; here is a man who cannot buy a twenty five pounds shirt and he wanted to buy a Rolls Royce, he was laughing. I didn’t say anything to him.

I looked up to God and said I hope you know this boy is laughing at both of us?

He is laughing at me and you are my employer, he says that there is no way in life I can ever ride a Rolls Royce, over to you.

Some months later I travelled to American and as I was passing London on my way back and as usual he was there to receive me.

He carried my bag; and as he was about to put my bags in his taxi, one of my son showed up and said, daddy please don’t put that into the taxi, this car is for you, it is second hand but it is a Rolls Royce.

I looked at my son and he looked at me and we began to laugh.

There is somebody here tonight, God will make you laugh!

There are things in your life now that might look totally impossible, the God I serve will make that  impossible to be possible in Jesus name.

God makes you laugh when He decides to reverse the irreversible.

In Ezekiel 37 v 1-10 the Bible tells us about a valley full of dry bones and the Bible says lo they were very dry, the Bible says the Spirit of God took the prophet Ezekiel and placed him in the valley of dry bones.

And God asked him, these bones that are dry, very dry can they live?

The man of God said my faith can’t carry this one. God only you can tell and the Almighty God said to the prophet okay, you prophecy, just say to dry bones, live again!

You know the rest of the story, the man of God obeyed and the dry bone came together bone to bone flesh covered them, the man of God prophecy again; the wind blew and what was dry bone became a mighty army, God can reverse the irreversible!

All that is required is for His prophet to prophecy

And I prophecy to you tonight, every irreversible shall be reversed in Jesus name.

The Almighty God said there is someone here tonight, He said by the time I finish with you, even those who are mocking you now will help you shout halleluiah!

Daddy said Lazarus heard My voice and came out of the tomb, He said your womb will hear My voice tonight.

I have told you this story before, this is a night for stories because God is going to make somebody laugh.

Several years ago, I was still a young lecturer at the University of Lagos, I went to Nsukka to mark WAEC exams.

I didn’t go with my car; it was a second hand Dodged Avenger. I wasn’t sure it won’t park up on the way so I didn’t travel with it.

When we finish marking, I came and I stood on the road side, in Asaba, looking for a lift for somebody to bring me to Lagos.

Whenever I saw a small old car coming, I will wave and they will just zoom past, none of them waited.

Finally I saw a Mercedes Benz 280 brand new coming. I didn’t bother to wave because I say this one is not going to wait.

And he zoomed past me, I think I must have lifted my hand weakly and the driver who happen to be the owner must have seen my hands going up a little and he stopped and reversed to where I was.

And he was one of these people who have either have spent several years in America or just like to speak like an American.

He said, “You want a lift?”

I said yes sir.

He said, “Get in men!”

So I got in men!

I put my little bag on the floor in the car and since he was driving and there was a friend sitting beside him, so I found myself sitting in the owner’s corner.

The whole thing was air-conditioned.

One moment I was in the sun in another moment I was sitting in the owner’s corner, the cool air was very, very refreshing.

I felt like laughing but in that kind of situation you better don’t laugh out loud.

Because I don’t want to laugh and I don’t want the man to look back and say what is funny dude?

He brought me to Lagos and said “where do you want to stop?

I said anywhere sir, I am already in Lagos,

He said no, give me your address, and he drove me all the way home.

After he has left that was when it was time for me to laugh!

There is laughter waiting for you at home, you are going to laugh! God will make you laugh.

God makes you laugh when He stops all the mockers;

I wasn’t there but I could imagine when all of a sudden the belly of Sarah began to bulge, that those people who had written her off looked at her and said Mama Sarah must have eaten excess pounded yam.

And she must have been laughing quietly, keep mocking you will soon see, the pregnancy became seven month, eight month.

I’m sure some of them must have been looking at father Abraham; and saying…

What are you looking at?

Why don’t you take this woman to the physician?

Can’t you see your wife is sick?

They though it was sickness they didn’t know it was a bundle of joy.

God will surprise your mockers.

Sarah said it in Genesis 21 v 7 who would have said that Sarah will give child suck? Who would have believed that I will ever have course to rejoice.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said the pendulum of your life has begun a new upward swing and it will never come down again.

In Samuel 2 v 1-5 Another woman who was considered barren Hannah by name sang a song to the Almighty God, She said at long last God has enlarge your mouth over your adversaries.

God will enlarge your mouth over your adversaries.

You probably remember the story of a woman who had four daughters, and all daughters are not married.

The youngest of the four I think was twenty eight, thirty and thirty two. They were like that in that series.

This was a woman committed to evangelism, every morning, very early in the morning she will go round the street ringing her bell and say everybody wake up, give your life to Jesus, surrender your life to Jesus.

One day one neighbor said woman why don’t you stop deceiving people. Saying that your Jesus can do everything,

If your Jesus can do everything, how come you have four daughters and not one of them is married?

I pray for you today, everything in your life that is causing people to say where is your God, my God will remove it tonight.

That was when the old woman came and said help me man of God pray for me what do I do.

And the Spirit of God asks me to ask some question and I discover that at the time of ignorance when each daughter was born, each one was dedicated to the IFA oracle.

I said I see, the Almighty God asked me to tell IFA to take his hands off these daughters of God, we prayed a simple prayer, within one year all four daughters were married and as they were getting married pregnancies followed.

Everything in your life that is not making your joy to be completely full, my Father will deal with it tonight in Jesus name.

God makes you to laugh when He decides to do something completely new.

It was something completely new for a ninety year old woman to become pregnant.

It has never happened before, but then in Exodus 14 v 13-28 when God decided to open the red sea it was something that had never happen before.

In Daniel 3 v 14-30 when Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego went into the fiery furnace without being burnt it is clear something completely new, something that had never happened before.

So I don’t know what is the situation you find yourself in whether physically, materially or spiritually, God will do something new.

Some of you , particularly will remember a young man who when he was born had only one testicle and the parent in an attempt to help him, took him to a herbalist to try and see if something can be done about it and in the process the herbalist destroy the only good testicle.

Which automatically means now the boy can never have a child because no testicle at all.

Then we held a program at Row Park, it was the first program I held as general overseer, Row Park.

And while the program was on, the boy felt something is happening under him.

And he did a check and discovered that instead of one testicle they were two.

The day he came to see me in the office to share his testimony he came with his wife and the wife was pregnant.

He said sir,  do you want me to show you?

I said there is no need I can see the evidence.

Something brand new, creative miracle will be your portion here tonight in Jesus name.

God makes you laugh when He causes you to sing a new song,

In Exodus 15 v 1 -18 after the opening of the red sea and the children of Israel who the night before were afraid that they were going to die, they were now saying there is no one like our God.

Nine month before, Sarah was saying how can I ever have a child, but after nine month he said the Lord as made me to laugh.

The Almighty God is about to put a new song in the mouth of someone here tonight.

Now I will close with the testimony of one of my pastor that we heard earlier this year; they have been married for twenty six years no fruit of the womb, then the almighty God moved in and now she could say to people.

Do you see these three children; the name of the first one is Miracle, Sign, the name of the third is Wonders and all three are mine.

Somebody is about to sing, I was barren now I have triplet. I was condemned to die, now am completely whole again. I was a tenant now I am a landlord. They thought I was going to drown in sorrow, now see me shouting halleluiah!

I can hear the sound of music coming from the home of many people who are here tonight, I can hear of singing:

I am serving the God of miracle

I know, yes I know

I am serving the God of miracle

I know, yes I know

Who is the one who will be singing that song?

Let me hear you shout halleluiah!

Let me conclude; the Bible says in Psalm 16 v 11 He says in the presence of God there is the fullness of joy and at His right hand there are pleasure forever more.

But in the same book of Psalm, Psalm 16 v 4 He said the sorrow of those who run after other gods shall be multiplied.

On one side in the presence of God there is the fullness of joy, on the other side the sorrow of those who run after other gods shall be multiplied and the choice is yours.

Do I want to be on the side of God and enjoy fullness of joy, or do I want to run after other gods and have my sorrow multiply?

The choice is yours but you cannot take the two together, like I told you last month those of you who were here, you either serve God hundred percent or serve the devil hundred percent, you can’t combine the two. Impossible!

You are either hundred percent a child of God, absolutely, completely on the side of Jesus or you are hundred percent on the side of the child of the devil, there is no gray area; it is either black or white period.

You cannot serve God and serve the devil at the same time it is not possible at all.

I had a confrontation with a traditional ruler not too long ago; who told me that the reason they worship a particular tree in his town is because it was under that tree that the founder of the town sat when he came to start the town.

I said how long ago was that?

He said about two hundred years ago, he said that is why the tree is scared.

I said Kabeyesi, you want to compare a tree that is two hundred years old tree with the Ancient of Days?

Who planted the tree?

You have to choose, no compromise, if you want to serve God, you serve God hundred percent, I didn’t say there is not going to be persecution, the evidence that you are truly in the light is that darkness will criticize.

You are not serving God until people begin to say you are a fanatic. You must be hundred percent for God, let them know you belong to Jesus Christ.

Let me tell you one thing, if you start a project for God , the enemy must criticize you, darkness must always speak up against light, that is the law.

If you don’t belief me, ask Noah, when God told him to build an ark, what happened?

They mocked him; look at this silly old man, building an ark when there is no rain, where is the river where he will put the thing.

When Nehemiah decided to build the wall of Jerusalem, criticism came from right left and center, everybody trying to make sure the wall will not be built.

One way you will know you are doing what God wants you to do is that the world must criticize you.

If you say you are a Christian and your co friend, your co sinner didn’t say you have accepted madness with religion, I’m not sure you are truly born again.

So tonight you have a choice, on the right; the presence of God there is the fullness of joy, on the left; they that run after other gods shall have their sorrow multiplied, what is your choice?

If you are here tonight and you have not given your life to Jesus Christ before now, come and do so now.

I advise you to choose the side of God that is where joy is.

Come now, the Almighty God is waiting, He will save your soul, He will forgive your sin, He will give you a brand new beginning and you will laugh.

Because God will make you laugh.

So if you want to come begin to come now.

Those of you in the front begin to call on God, ask Him to save your soul ask Him to forgive you your sins, tell Him you are very sorry for all the evils you have done in the past.

Promise Him from now on you will do his will, ask Him to forgive you, ask Him to save your soul.

That from now on He will be your Lord and savior.

The rest of us let us intercede for these people, that  God will have mercy on them, that the One who saved your soul will save their own soul also.

Pray for them.

Ask the Almighty God to be merciful unto you, to forgive you all your sins, ask Him to give you a brand new beginning.

… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Father, I want to bless your Holy Name, I want to thank you for your Word, I want to thank you for all these your children who have decided to surrender their lives to you today, please on their behalf accept our thank in Jesus name.

Father you promised that whosoever come to you will not cast out, Father please receive them in Jesus name.

Forgive them in Jesus name, let your blood wipe away their sins.

Write their names in the Book of Life, please Lord don’t let them ever go back into the world, from now on anytime they call on you, answer them by fire, give them a new beginning.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight, I want to promise you that from now on we will be praying for you.

So I am going to need your name, your address and prayer request.

PRAYER POINT

1.     Praise Him that your time has come at last

2.     The Bible says when God turn the captivity of Zion we were like those that dream, Father please turn my captivity today

3.     Father, I will sow in tears, let reap in joy.

Anouncement:

By the grace of God, the last Holy Ghost Service of the year comes up next month because by December we will be having the Holy Ghost congress.

So the first Friday of next month November, is the Holy Ghost Service with the theme: SOUNDS FROM HEAVEN.

Once upon a time a very powerful enemy besieged a city and made things so bad for them that women began to eat their own children.

And the man of God prophesied that the tide will turn within twenty four hours.

For that tide to turn the enemies heard sounds from heaven and they fled.

I’m believing God for every one of you who will be here next month that your enemies will hear sounds from heaven and the siege in your life will be over, the siege in the life of Nigeria will be over.

And the siege in the nations you represent will be over.

So next month Holy Ghost Service is an extremely important one, the Last for this year as we move on to December for the Holy Ghost congress, which will be the best congress we have ever had.

WONDERS OF EXPLOIT:

Daniel 11v32  And as such as do wickedly against the covenant shall be corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploit.

I believe that the greatest wonder of doing exploit is that there is only one thing to do; and what is that one thing?

It is to know God; people that do know their God shall be strong and shall do exploit.  In order words to be able to do exploit, you must know God the Father, you must know God the Son, you must know God the Holy Spirit.

And I know that immediately I say that there will be some people who will say hold on; are there three Gods?  No! Only one God but He magnifies Himself in three personalities.

How can that be? I give you an example of myself; to my children I’m Adeboye the father, to my mother I’m Adeboye the son, to my wife I’m Adeboye the husband.

I’m I three? No I’m only one, but the way I behave when I’m the father is different from when I’m the son.

And I give you an example, if I have a beautiful crystal drinking glass. And my son is handling it and it falls on the ground and breaks. I will look at my son and say what is wrong with you? Don’t you know that cup is precious to me? Why are you so careless?

If the same cup falls down from the hand of my mother “mama, gently, I hope you are not hurt, sorry ma. The same cup!

The same me!

But the way I react when I’m father, is different from the way I react when I’m son.

And I don’t need to tell you there are things I can do to my wife that I can never do to my mother.

So when God the father is manifesting according to the word of God, the earth trembles.

Hills melt, enemies scatter.

When God decides to arise as God the Father, when He wants to manifest as God the Son, He comes as a Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.

He comes as the Fourth man in the fiery furnace, which quenches the power of fire.

He comes as a gentle meek person.

He said come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.

When He manifests as the Holy Spirit; here comes the consuming fire, I mean all you need to do is find out what happened when they brought Samson bound to the enemies and the Holy Spirit came mightily upon him and the ropes that were binding him were burnt as if by fire.

So you need to know God in His various manifestations, God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.

So for the few minutes I am going to encourage you if you want to do exploit to know about God the Father.

There are many things about God the Father.

I mean we can spend the whole week trying to study about God the Father. But you know one thing about Him, at least He is the One who made heaven and earth Genesis 1 v 1-3 and the One who said let there be light and there were light.

And because He is the One who created heaven and earth and everything that was in the earth and in the heavens, the Bible refers to Him in Genesis 19-14 and calls Him the Possessor of heaven and earth.

You need to know God the Father as the Possessor of heaven and earth.

He is the Possessor of all things and the Lord Jesus Christ referred to him in John 14 v 1; He said in my Father’s house there are many mansions.

This understanding of God as the Possessor of heaven and earth the Owner of mansion in heaven became very useful to me several years ago when my father in the Lord, myself and four other people went to Tulsa Oklahoma for the first time.

We went to attend a conference in 1979 Kenneth Haggins camp meeting, we didn’t book any accommodation.

We didn’t hear about the conference until very late and we wanted to go.

And people say how can you go to America you didn’t even have reservation?

And something within me said ‘if God has gone to prepare me mansion in heaven surely he will provide me with accommodation when I get to America”.

We got to America; somebody meet us at the airport. We began to phone all the hotels in Tulsa, beginning from Hotels that were about an hour distant or more from the program, and everyone were fully booked.

All of a sudden it occurred to me; why are you phoning hotels that where more than one hour away we don’t have means of transportation.

So I said to the brother (I believe he will be listening to me on the internet right now) I said, look for the nearest hotel to the venue and phone them, tell them that we are missionary from Africa and we need a room.

He picked the phone, checked from the phonebook and found the nearest hotel and called them.

 

And that one said; who do you say you are?

He said we are missionary from Africa, we need a room.

He said come over I will give you a room.

I said tell him, we need more than one room, can we have two rooms?

He said where did you say you come from?

We said we are missionaries from Africa.

He said, I will give you two rooms.

So we got to the hotel, now my father in the Lord was with me and I was wondering how many people are we going to put in the same room with this old man!.

So I said are you really sure you can’t give us three rooms?

He looked up at me and said where did you say you came from?

I said from Africa.

He said I will give you three rooms.

My Father is the Possessor of heaven and earth.

That is why I decree to somebody here today, all your needs shall be met in Jesus name.

And then you need to know God the Son.

There are many things you need to know about God the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, the great Physician, the One who has come to set the captives free.

The One who came to destroy the works of the devil and so on.

But like I said time is not in my favor. But if you asked anybody who knows anything about Jesus Christ at all, to tell you one thing that is so crucial about the Lord Jesus Christ, he will call him the Savior Matthew 1 v 21.

Thank you father, no matter how short the time, God still have a word for somebody.

God says there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you, cling unto me and you will not sink.

The Lord has a word for one young girl, one young boy; he said I am the God of David; I am the God of Esther, what I have done for David I will do for you, what I have for Esther I will do for you.

The Lord says; I am raising a new generation of Josephs, He said if you are interested I will include you.

Matthew 1 v 21, you shall call His name Jesus for He shall save His people.

Luke 19v1-10 He ended up his conversation in the house of Zacheaus by saying for the Son of man has come to seek and save the lost.

In 1 John 1 v 7 the Bible made it clear that the blood of Jesus cleanses from all sins.

In Act 4 V 12 the Bible says ‘for there is no other name given among men where we might be save other than the name of Jesus’.

Several years ago, I went to another nation in Africa and my host and I we were just having a discussion and he was talking about a certain minister in government, who was a very terrible man.

He said that the man was so terrible only God can tell how many people the man had killed.

The man was so terrible that they gave him the name “Cobra”.

When I heard that, suddenly I heard the Holy Spirit ministering to me and said, you must go and preach to him, so I turned to my neighbor and said ‘I need to go and preach to the ‘cobra’.

He looked at me and said maybe you don’t understand what I am saying.

I said If he is as bad as you say he is, then he needs salvation.

And there is somebody that I know Who can save him,

His name is Jesus.

To cut a long story short, my host finally said alright, I will take you to his house but I won’t go in with you.

I will stay in the car and if I wait for one hour and you don’t come out, I will go.

I said that is good enough for me, after all if after one hour I don’t come out, you are free to go.

If they asked you from Nigeria what happened, just say I didn’t arrive.

I said phone him in advance, don’t tell him a pastor is coming, tell him a prophet (because if you say pastor, he won’t pay much attention)

Tell him a prophet is coming from Nigeria and he has a message for him.

I got there, I entered and met the Cobra;

I said “sir, I have a message for you from the Lord”.

He said “what is the message?”

I said “your days are numbered; your day of judgment is at hand. Your cup is about to overflow, but the Lord has sent me to tell you that in spite of all the evils you have done he still loved you”.

Less than fifteen minutes after I have started speaking the Cobra was on his knees asking:

“What can I do to be saved?”

I went in because I know the Savior.

And I’m believing God for all the Cobras who are listening to me all over the world right now, it doesn’t matter how evil you have been, there is someone called the Savior, He loves you still, if you give your life to Him tonight, He will save your soul and His blood will wipe away all your sins and He will give you a new beginning.

Because the word of God says if any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things have passed away behold all things are become new.

And then you need to know God the Holy Spirit.

There are many things to know about the Holy Spirit; He is the source of power, Act 1 v 8

You shall receive power after the Holy Spirit is come upon you.

He is a wonderful teacher John 14 v 26, the Lord Jesus Christ said He will teach you all things.

He is a Revealer of the future, John 15 v 13 tells us he will show you things to come.

But the greatest thing you will know about the Holy Spirit is that He is the Comforter John 14 v 26

The Bible calls Him the Comforter.

When you know the Comforter it becomes easy for you to comfort others and yourself according to 2 Corinthians 1 v 3-4

I’m telling you brethren, the time you need to know God the Holy Spirit most is when you are in sorrow.

Because many at times when we get into thought situations, when we encounter tragedies there is very little anybody can do to help us.

They can say sorry, they can say, just take heart. It takes the Holy Spirit to really bring comfort to you and after He has comforted you, you can use the comfort wherewith He has comforted you to comfort others.

You cannot be of much use to somebody who is in sorrow if you had never know sorrow yourself, there are many at times when you are in sorrow and there is nobody who could even help.

There are some of us who are in a position that when we are even in sorrow we are not allowed to show it, thank God for the Holy Spirit.

I remembered one occasion when I went to visit a family who had just suffered a great loss and I was moved to tears when I consider the sorrow they were going through.

Some people were saying you are the General Overseer, you are not supposed to cry. You came here to comfort others; you are not supposed to cry.

I said leave me alone, Jesus cried. And if Jesus can cry I’m free to cry also.

And I will tell you a story because many at times when some members of the congregation had suffered a loss because we put on a bold face as General Overseer or pastor, they may not know we feel the pain we suffer with them.

There was this young man, some of you have heard about him before, I call him Brother Moses, he was my student at the University of Lagos, when I was a lecturer there.

And he was an incurable soul winner that endeared him to me, we became so intimate that he was like my first born.

Then all of a sudden he went on a youth service to the north and died there.

Now this boy was so close to God that within few days or month he spent  there, all others corpers had fallen deeply in love with him.

So when he died all other corpers said no! we won’t take this one from the Lord so they began to pray, he died at 10am by 2pm he came back to life, he came back to life and told the brethren, he said the Lord Jesus said I should go back and tell you that your noise is disturbing Him, that you are praying the wrong kind of prayer, you shouldn’t be praying for Moses to come from glory and join you here, you should be praying that you too will finish up in glory.

He delivered the message laid back on the bed and went back to heaven.

They came and they told me; I only met him in the university. I don’t know his mother, I don’t know his father, I don’t know his house but for days I was weeping.

Oh when I come before the congregation; I will say praised the Lord, halleluiah! The Lord is good.

But the moment the service is over and I am alone I go back into crying and weeping.

The third day God spoke to me and say “son why are you crying?”

I said, Daddy you know all things, you know why I am crying, I am crying because Mosses died.

God said no! You are not crying because Mosses died, you are crying because he left you behind.

I said that is true. The Lord said to me, son when you travel abroad to a place you have never been before, as you cross the gate border into the new place and you see somebody you had known before, there to welcome you. He said how do you feel? I said I feel so happy.

He said when you get to heaven, Jesus will be there to receive all of you but Moses will be there specially to receive you, that brought comfort to me like nobody else.

Let me tell you brethren, the Comforter explained to me that those who died, your relatives, your friends, at time your children that have died, they have not gone to your past, they have gone into your future.

If they died in the Lord, they are waiting for you at the gate of heavens. All you should do is to pray that you too will finish well, so that you will be able to see them again. You need to know the Comforter, God the Holy Spirit.

Now you cannot know God the Father, know God the Son, know God the Holy Spirit and want to continue in sin, it is not possible, because all of them are holy.

God the Father is called the Holy One of Israel, the angel told Mary that the Holy One who will be born through her shall be the Son of the Most High God.

The Holy Spirit Himself carries the word holy wherever he goes.

No one can do exploit without knowing God.  No one can know God and wants to continue in sin. That is why if you are here tonight and you have not given your life to Jesus Christ, before anything else, you need to come to Jesus and let His blood wash away your sins and give you a brand new beginning.

That is why if you are here tonight and you claimed that you are born again and you are still living in sin; you are deceiving yourself because nobody can really be in Christ and continue in sin.

So if you are still living in sin, come back to Jesus and come and get the genuine salvation.

And I want those of you who already know God to know this thing; the Apostle Paul was already an apostle when he said, “that I may know Him”, no matter how much you know of Him, there is still a lot to know.

We will pray about that later but if you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, if you want His blood to wash away your sins, come forward now.

Come to the savior; if he can save the Cobra, he can save you too.

No matter how bad your past can be, he will give you a brand new beginning.

There is power mighty in His blood, that blood is so powerful; it can wash away all your sins and give you a brand new beginning.

Those of you in front begin to pray now, ask the Lord to have mercy on you, ask Him to save your soul, ask Him to wash you clean, ask Him to give you a brand new beginning.

And those of you that are coming, you begin to pray also as you are coming, calling on the Almighty Savior, to save your soul, to be merciful unto you, to cleanse you in His blood.

The rest of us let us stretch our hands towards these people that the Savior who saved us will save them too.

As He as kept us in his love, He will keep them in His love also. That they will have brand new beginning, from now on their lives will be different.

And they will become servant of the Most High God, children of the Almighty God….

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Savior we want to bless your holy name, we know there is no one that you cannot save; all we have to do is to surrender to you.

This your children has come tonight to surrender their lives to you, please receive them in Jesus name, have mercy on them in Jesus name, let your blood wash away their sins in Jesus name, today as you save their souls write their names in the book of life in Jesus name.

And Lord I’m not praying only for those who are here, I’m praying for those who are listening on radio, by television, on the Internet throughout the whole world. As many of them as have decided to surrender to you tonight, father save their souls in Jesus name. And beginning from this moment on ward, the grace to serve you whole heartedly, release unto them in Jesus name.

I’m also praying that from this moment onward because you have save their souls anytime they call on you answer by fire in Jesus name and let them serve you till the very end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So those of you who have come forward let he hear you shout Halleluiah!

I’m rejoicing with you tonight because by the special grace of God, as from now on I will be praying for you and you will be receiving miracles, even miracle you didn’t ask for then you will know that somebody is praying for you somewhere.

So I’m going to need your name, I’m going to need your address, I’m going to need your prayer request.

ANNOUNCEMENT

This is the last Holy Ghost service of this year; that means there will be no Holy Ghost service the first Friday of next month, the reason being that next month is Congress time.

The congress this year will be from December 9th to -14th  2013 and the theme of the Congress is The OVERFLOW.

David said, Thou anointed my head with oil, my cup runs over.

Some people manage to survive, but some people leave in the overflow.

Physically; they overflow with health,

Materially; they overflow with blessings,

Spiritually; they overflow with anointing.

Just a little over a month from now, there will be someone here listening to me who will begin to overflow in every areas of life.

Do everything within your power to tell your friends, relatives including your enemies to attend this year congress.

It is going to be one of a kind; there have never be a one like it before, there may never be another one like it in the future, so don’t miss this year holy Ghost Congress, the theme is OVERFLOW.

The song we will be singing as we advertise the congress is simply:

I HEAR A SOUND FORM HEAVEN 2CE

MY BLESSINGS SHALL FLOW IN

I HEAR A SOUND FROM HEAVEN.

Genesis 1 V 1-3 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, and the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, let there be light; and there was light.

The first time there was a sound in heaven, the very first time in the history of man that God spoke; what He said was let there be light.

And there was light.

So tonight in the Name that is above every other name, I am echoing the voice of my Father, as I say to you, in every facet of your life there will be light.

That first sound from heaven; let there be light of course could mean several thing but the basic thing is darkness get out of the way.

In Mark 10 v 46-52 the Bibles tells us that there was this blind man who was born blind and he heard that Jesus was passing by and so he began to cry; Lord have mercy on me!

And there was a multitude and when there is a multitude, there are all manners of noises but this man wanted to hear just one voice, one noise from heaven, when he finally got to the presence of Jesus Christ and he heard that sweet voice;

What can I do for you?

So that I might receive my sight,

The voice came from heaven,

Receive your sight.

Let there be light and immediately there was light.

In all areas of your life where there have been darkness, they will light tonight.

Let there be light means darkness depart,

In Mark 5 v 1-15 we have heard of him again and again this mad man of Gadara who has six thousand demons.

Six thousand forces of darkness holding him captive.

But one day Jesus came on the scene and the mad man heard a voice from heaven saying to the demons go.

Forces of darkness depart and they all departed.

It doesn’t matter how many forces of darkness has been tormenting you, today they will hear a sound from heaven, they will lose you and let you go in Jesus name.

When that first sound came from heaven; a new day was born, because the Bible say in the beginning God created heaven and the earth the earth was without form and empty, there was darkness all over the place but the moment he spoke, the first day began.

Psalm 30 v 5 says weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.

The first sound you are going to hear from heaven today is that, you shall weep no more.

Thank you Father, the Lord say there is a student here tonight; He said the fire that the enemy started in your brain has been put out.

A new day, a new dawn, a new day of joy is dawning for someone here tonight.

I heard the testimony of one young man who wasn’t just born blind, he had no eye balls, where eyes were supposed to be were just empty sockets.

Then one great evangelist was holding a crusade that was to last a week.

And every night they took this boy there, the first night the man of God preached about the creative power of God, that God can create what was not there originally.

The faith of the boy jumped!

“That is what I need.”

But he left the crusade that night, he was still blind.

But when he woke up in the morning and he was washing his face; he discovered that the eyes where the socket used to be was very cold.

Incredibly cold because there was no blood flowing there, he felt some warmth there, he came to the crusade the second day

Nothing still happened other than that warmth.

But when he woke up the second day, he saw that something seems to be bulging where there is a socket.

The Third day he came to the crusade and suddenly he heard a voice from heaven that says you can open your eye now.

I am prophesying to someone here today, before Monday you will shout a big victory shout.

And then God spoke again in the same Genesis 1 v 4-5  He said and God saw the light and it was good and God divided the light from the darkness called the light day.

The darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

God spoke again, another sound from heaven, he said light you will be day, darkness you will be night and I separate the two of you.

Second voice, the second sound that came from heaven is that there will be a separation between light and darkness.

A separation between you and your enemies; a separation between you and those who want to destroy you.

In Exodus 12 v 21- 36 the night that God was going to visit Egypt to destroy all the first born, He put a separation between the children of Israel and the children of Egypt.

So if you read Psalm 68 v 1-3 the Bible says let God arise and let his enemies be scattered.

He said as wax melt before fire, let the enemies melt before the Almighty God; He said but let the righteous rejoice.

Every one of you truly serving the Living God, between now and tomorrow morning, a definite separation will come between you and your enemies.

Those of you who are a little older you will remember the testimony when we were still in the second auditorium which is now the children auditorium.

A woman came from the next town for the convention and after we finished one night, she wanted to go home quickly to go and get something, on the way she entered into a bus not knowing she was being kidnapped.

So they took her and one other brother far into the jungle.

And they were doing all manners of atrocities to those people that were In front of them.

But then … they already took this woman they were already shaving her hair off in preparative to whatever they wanted to do but all of a sudden behind her back, the brother they picked with her began to speak in tongue and as he began to speak in tongues trouble came in the camp of the enemies.

Who brought this one here?

Where did they get them?

And they told him they got them in front of the Camp,

“Ah you took the wrong people!

Get away from here and immediately they set them free.

In the name that is above every other name, those who want to destroy you will hear a sound from heaven and they will release you.

There were several other sounds but because we have another meeting after this one, we will go to Genesis 1 v 20-21

It reads and God said (that I heard another sound from heaven)

Let the waters bring forth abundantly, the moving creature that has life and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

One of the sounds that came was the beginning of human race.

At the beginning of creation was when God said; bring forth plentiful, increase tremendously.

In the Name that is above every other name, tonight, you will hear a sound from heaven and that sound is going to say increase abundantly.

In 1 King 17 v 8-16 the widow of Zarepath had only one meal left which she wanted to prepare for herself and her son to eat and die.

But then a prophet of God came and for the first time in her life, she had a word of prophesy, she had a sound from heaven, a sound that said;

No! your oil is not going to dry up, it is going to increase abundantly. You flower is not going to extinct, it is going to increase abundantly and the abundant increase began.

In 2 King 4 v 1-7 another widow had two sons, and a lot of debts and the creditors have come and said if you don’t pay by tomorrow we are going to sell your sons.

She ran to the man of God and from the mouth of the man of God came a sound from heaven.

The sound that says: the little that you have will increase abundantly and before the end of that day she had paid her debt and she had enough to live on for the rest of her life.

I represent the Most High God today; I stand on this holy altar to prophesy to someone in the Name that is above every other name, all that you owe shall be paid and you will never lack again.

When you are looking for an example of increasing abundantly you will find it in the life of the children of Israel.

Genesis 46 v 26-27 says the numbers of souls that Israel brought into Egypt including Joseph who was already there were seventy.

Seventy souls came into a town but by the time you read Exodus 12 v 37 when they were leaving Egypt the Bible says the men alone numbered six hundred thousands, not counting women or children.

They came in as seventy; they left more than six hundred thousand.

I am believing the Almighty God for someone here tonight; before this time next year, you will look at yourself and said I don’t understand; I was very small last year, I was very small last year but now I have increased tremendously.

I give all the glory to the Almighty God for his faithfulness, because many at times when we read some of these things in the Bible there is a tendency for us to believe that can only happen in the old days.

But The Redeemed Christian Church of God started with twelve people.

But as long ago as 1981 when by his grace I became The General Overseer, we had forty Churches; one headquarters, thirty nine parishes in all together.

The convention we had in 1980; the total number of people who attended the convention in 1980 was a little over six hundred people and we thought that was big.

Today by the grace of the Almighty God we are in one hundred and seventy four Nations of the world.

There is a God, a God who can speak from heaven and suddenly little will begin to increase abundantly.

That God of The Redeemed Christian of God will speak to you tonight. He will say to you; increase abundantly.

And then there was another sound from heaven, and I love this one, let me read it to you from Genesis 1v 28

He says that: And God blessed them.

You know it is impossible to bless someone with your mouth close.

When you want to bless you open your mouth, a sound came from heaven to Adam and Eve and God says I bless you.

There is someone here tonight, you will hear a sound from heaven saying, you are blessed.

In Genesis 27 v 26-27 Isaac blessed Jacob and if you read that passage alone, you will know the meaning of blessing.

I think I have explained the meaning of blessing before;

A blessing is a summon to all the forces in heaven, all the forces on earth, all the forces underneath the earth to come and help you succeed.

I was telling my children yesterday, there is no bigger prayer than God bless you.

If God bless you does not solve your problems, nothing can.

Because when God blesses you, all the angels will begin to help you, even demons will begin to fight demons to make sure they clear your way for you.

I say tonight to every one of you who happen to be my children, God bless you.

You see you will find an example in Genesis 48 V 8-20 when Joseph brought his two children to his father in Egypt for blessing, the young one is Ephraim the elder is Manasseh.

In fact their father Joseph positioned the two of them so that the right hand of his father can lie on Ephraim and the left hand on Manasseh.

But his father crossed his hand.

And Joseph said to Jacob (because by then Jacob couldn’t see),

 

sir, no, you are putting the right hand on the wrong head,

Jacob said I know what I’m doing.

He said the younger is going to be greater than the elder.

He blessed them with his hands crossed.

I have always told my children when they ask me what is the meaning of the crossed hand?.

And I say I don’t know all the full meanings, but when your father wants to bless the two of you, put your head where your father’s right hand is.

That right hand carries tremendous power.

Within a short period of time, the blessings of Ephraim were ten times that of Manasseh; the young one has been blessed ten times more.

Well am raising my right hand to all my children tonight and am saying God bless you.

I have told you the story of one of my children who came to help me when I was at the university of Ilorin.

He came to help me repair all the electrical installation in my apartment and when he was about to leave, I said how much am I going to pay?

He said “how can I work for you and you pay?

He said all I just want from you is that you pray for me.

I have no money to travel back; you can give me money to travel back and pray for me that is all I want.

I said there is no need to pray for you. You have done this for me?

The Bible says you honor a prophet, you get a prophet’s reward.

I said my son God bless you.

I gave him money for transport; he had no money for transport that was how poor he was.

When I saw him two weeks later he was riding his own brand new car.

How did it happen?

He came down from the vehicle that brought him to Lagos at Iddo Motor Park.

And as he was coming out he saw one of his classmates, someone they studied together in College of Tech at Yaba.

Long time no see, what are you doing now?

That one says I am working in Dordon barracks, and you?

I am practicing electrical engineering.

The one in Dordon barrack said see me tomorrow,

He saw him tomorrow and things changed.

The one who will help you to reach your goal you will meet you this month.

Daddy says that there is someone here tonight; He said if you command that mountain tonight, I will help you move it into the sea.

Daddy asked me to give you two minute to command any mountain that you want out of your way…

In Jesus mighty name it shall be so.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said I created you to be a blessing and regardless of your situation you will be a blessing.

In Genesis 1 v 28 God blessed them and said unto them be fruitful and multiply and replenished the earth.

Another sound from heaven says be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth.

You know in the songs 4v2 the Bible says clearly there shall be non-barren among the children of God.

When I got this revelation years ago, I told those who came to Shiloh hour that day, I said:

Lay your hand on your womb, command the womb and say womb you must obey God. It is a commandment from God that you are to be fruitful, and you must be fruitful.

But we are not just talking about the fruit of the womb again now, there are some brains that are not fruitful.

You know it takes one idea to make you a billionaire. And yet there are some brains that can go from one idea to another, idea keeps coming because they are fruitful.

Lay your hands on your head and say brain, hear the word of the Lord, be fruitful…

In Jesus mighty name.

In 2Kings 4v8-17 the Shunammite woman had everything except a child and she was hospitable, she was looking after Elisha the man of God, she even built a house for the man of God.

And then one day she had a sound from heaven, when the man of God said nine month from now you will have a son, she didn’t believe, but the sound didn’t come from man it came from heaven.

And a sound is coming to someone here tonight, physically you shall be fruitful, mentally you shall be fruitful, spiritually you shall be fruitful.

I have just returned from Britain and there was lot of testimonies, but I had one that made me dance.

One friend of mine a professor said sir,

You will remember that some time ago, I wanted to bring my secretary to you for prayers because she has been trusting God for the fruit of the womb but by the time I phone you, you were already on your way out.

But you said give her the phone let me pray for her and as I prayed over the phone, the Almighty God backed up the voice of His servant.

My friend said sir; she has given birth to triplet.

She heard a sound via the phone, now you are not hearing your own via the phone now you are hearing it direct;

You shall be fruitful, you shall multiply, you shall replenish the earth.

The same Genesis 1 v 28, He didn’t stop there, after He said God bless them, God said unto them  be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea  and over the fowl of the air and over everything  living thing hovering upon the earth.

Sounds from heaven say have dominion;

You know what that one means? Be in charge, take control.

In Exodus 12 v 30-32 we hear Pharaoh saying to Moses bless me also.

The one who used to control Moses came to him to beg for help.

In the Name that is above every other name, from tonight you will begin to control your controllers.

Each time I read Joshua 10 v 12 -14 when Joshua was fighting and the sun was about to set and he said I have not finished my assignment, if darkness falls my enemies will escape.

He said, sun stand where you are!

Moon stay where you are!

Nobody had ever done that before.

But God says have dominion, be in charge.

The problem with many of us is that instead of running from our enemy, we should be in charge.

David didn’t run from the lion; he said come Lion, I will beat you to death. Come Goliath I will cut off your head. Be in charge!

I was invited to come and preach in Denver Colorado in January of one year.

And if you know any Geography at all you will know that place can be very cold in January and I don’t like it cold.

God knows what He was doing when He made me a Nigerian.

I don’t like living in the cooler, some of you don’t mind living in Ice box, I prefer to have my weather like this.

“Daddy I have been invited should I go”? He said yes,

What are we going to do about the cold?

He said you go ahead I will go along with you.

Wherever you go as from now on, God will go with you.

From the day I arrived till the day I was about to leave people were wearing t-shirt because summer replaced winter.

Now the beauty of it was, my plane took off at 5pm, within two hours of my leaving, more than ten centimeter of snow fell because what God did was that He just suspended the snow until I got out of the way then He released it.

I prophesy to you today, whatever  God has to suspend in other for you to reach your goal, shall be suspended tonight in Jesus name.

I want you to have some time to pray tonight, I want to leave Genesis, maybe one of this days, the Lord will allows to use SOUNDS FROM HEAVEN  for Congress, so that we can spend a whole week to look at it.

I want you to look at 2King 7 v 1-11 you will hear Elisha saying to the people, he said within twenty four hours there will be abundance in Samaria.

At a time when things were so bad that women were eating their own children.

The man of God got up and said within twenty four hours there will be so much food nobody will want to buy.

Which caused an academician, the economic adviser of the king to say “how can that be?

Even if God opens the windows of heaven and begins to pour in food, how can that be?”

And the man of God said “you will see it only you won’t be part of it.

But the beauty of that story was that the Bible says there were four lepers outside the gate and they said to themselves why are we sitting down here until we die?

If we sit down here, hunger will kill us. There is no food in the city so don’t need to go into the city, let’s go to the camp of the enemies.

The worst they can do is kill us, after all if they kill us we will die quickly.

So they began towards the camp of the enemies. And as they were moving their legs were shuffling because they were lepers.

The Almighty God pick up the noise that there legs were making to heaven, amplified it and sends it to the camp of the enemy.

When the enemies heard the sound; they say they said ah!

A great army is coming and they fled, they left all their food, all their clothes, all their money and they ran.

God can speak, make a single statement in heaven; His children will hear one thing His enemies will hear another thing.

The children asked within twenty four hours your problems are over; the enemies heard within twenty four hours the attackers will come and overtake you.

One sound from heaven and immediately the siege was over.

Even if you don’t hear any other thing tonight, you are going to hear a sound that says the siege is over.

It could be a siege against your health; like in the case of the woman in Mark 5v 25-34 the woman with the issue of blood.

There was a siege against her health, the blood was dropping. A drop at a time continuously the enemy just decided that this woman was not going to get well, but the Almighty God lifted the siege.

Everyone here tonight, with any form of sickness, any form of disease, any form of pain, in the Name that is above every other name, the siege against your health is over.

It could be a siege against your finance’s like the same woman the Bible said she spent all she had on physician and instead of getting better she grew worse but in a single day the siege against her finances was lifted.

And I know what this can be; before I became born again I was a lecturer in the university, in those days lecturers were well paid and glory day will return.

So I had a car and I had a driver, I could afford a driver. But there was a siege against my money, I will pay the driver at the beginning of the month and by the fifteen of the month I will be borrowing money from him to buy petrol.

Then I met the Lord Jesus Christ and the siege was lifted.

Whatever is like siege that is draining your resources, that siege is ceased in your life today in Jesus name.

Maybe  the siege is against your children, 2Kings 4v 1-7 the enemies was actually after the children of the widow, otherwise how could you come to a widow and say if you don’t pay our money within twenty for hours, we are going to sell your sons.

Why?

Why the sons?, the enemies knows that if he can deal with those boys then the family will have no future, no heritage, no legacy.

There might be one or two people here tonight, the enemy has decided to focus on your children, on your son or your daughter or your entire family, tonight the siege is lifted.

It could even be a siege against your destiny.

In Mark 5v 1-20 the mad man of Gadara, who would have thought that the plan of God for this man was to be an evangelist, the enemy knew  that this man was going to be mightily use of God and decided that no, no!

Before he can become an evangelist let’s grab him. And to make sure that he will never become what God wants him to become, he didn’t send one demon, seven or ten, he sent six thousand.

But that man heard a sound from heaven and his destiny was full restored.

I know there are people here listening to me that you knew it deep within you, even when you were young that the plan of God for your life is for you to be great but now you look at yourself and you are growing old and there is no sign of greatness at all.

In fact you are merely surviving.

You will hear a sound from heaven from tonight, your destiny shall be restored.

Sound from heaven, children of God heard one thing, the enemy heard another.

Thank you my Father; it seems as if God is focusing on student because He is saying there is a student here tonight, He said one day you will be listed among the most brilliant people of the world.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said very soon you will compose your own song and the song will go something like this: Now the flood gates are open, I am more than a conqueror”

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said there are two words and the two words are sisters, they are relative. And He said the two will never occur in your life again, and the two words are failure and defeat.

Romans 6 v 23 the Bible says the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is life and is to be found in Jesus Christ.

If you are a child of the living God you will hear good news from heaven, but if you refuse to accept Him, you will also hear sound from heaven saying the wages of sin is death.

But tonight there is a sound from heaven coming to every sinner saying come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.

The Savior is still pleading saying there is an invitation, come and be safe from your sins.

Come let me wash away your sins, come let me give you a new beginning.

I know there are at least a few people here from the moment you step in something tells you “God is going to speak to me today.

I know I have to surrender to him tonight”.

Like the one who spoke before me said, he said the sound is not effective until you do something about it.

It is an invitation to you now, come and surrender your life to Jesus.

If you like accept the invitation, if you like ignore it, but if I were you, I will run forward now and give my life to Jesus Christ.

Come and cry unto Him and say Lord I have heard of your voice speaking of your love for me, and I want you Lord Almighty to draw me near, near your side so that I can wash in that precious blood, come quickly

As you come begin to pray, begin to cry unto Him and say Lord begin to have mercy on me, save my soul.

Lord have mercy, please be my Lord and savior.

Come this is your day of salvation, come and cry unto Him for mercy, for salvation, call on Him tonight.

Cleanse me with your blood; I will serve you for the rest of my life

Please the rest of us let us intercede for these people also that the savior who saved our souls will save their own souls also, that the Almighty God will be merciful unto them…

In Jesus name we have prayed.

In the mighty name of Jesus, I want to thank you for your word I want to thank you for this people who have come forward to surrender their live to you, you promise oh Lord, you will not cast out, please receive them in Jesus name, forgive them in Jesus name.

Cleanse them in your blood in Jesus name, save their souls, write their names in the book of life and from now on anytime they call on you please answer them by fire, from now on let them hear the sound of joy and let them serve you till the end please don’t let them backslide.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen

I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight, I’m rejoicing with you because by the grace of God, I will be praying for you and very soon you will be receiving miracles that will show you somebody somewhere is praying for you, that is why I will need your name, your address @ your prayer requests.

PRAYER POINTS: 1. Praise God 2. Father, please speak light to my life 3. Father, put a solid divider between me and forces of darkness forever. 4. Father, command abundance into my destiny 5. Father, please pronounce a special blessing on me and my family tonight. 6. Father, command an end to fruitlessness in my home 7. Father, put me in total control of all situations in my life. 8.

… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

The Almighty God will grant your request, the light of God will shine into your lives, God will put a major barrier between you and darkness, from His throne in heaven, He will pronounce His special blessings on you.

In your entire family there will be no more bareness, there will be no more fruitlessness.

You will no longer labor in vain; the Almighty God will command abundance into your life.

From now on you will be controlling your controllers.

Every siege against your health, against your finances, against your family, against your destiny are cancelled now, it shall be well with you, your blessings shall overflow, you will never know sorrow again.

So shall it be and you will serve the Lord.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen.

Let me hear somebody shout halleluiah!
