Acts 3 we are reading from verse 1 to 11. I will read in English, the Yorubas will just follow along with us. Acts 3:1-11:

1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.

2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.

5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

8 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God:

10 And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.

11 And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering.

Tonight we want to talk to you about what happens when the wind is blowing. The wind of change has started to blow. Those of us who were here for the Watch Night Service, we heard one or two testimonies about what God did during the Congress and the wind had started blowing then – it is going to continue throughout this year!

The wind started to blow really on the Day of Pentecost. The Bible said there was a sound as of a rushing mighty wind. You see whenever the wind is blowing there is always noise and I know that in the house of somebody this year there’ll be shouts of joy. (Amen!) And one of these days we’ll have an opportunity to share why we shout so much. But those of you who are members of the School of Disciples, you know that shouting is a weapon of war. It was shouting that brought down the wall of Jericho and from that time till now, anytime Satan hears some people shouting for joy, he hesitated in his attack, he begins to wonder, what is it that they know that I don’t know? I better wait and find out before I attack. And during that short period when he hesitated the child of God would have escaped – let me hear somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

I’m sure some of you will say, we have studied Acts 3:1-11 for more than one year. We spent the whole of 1999 studying that particular chapter and almost the whole of the year 2000 we spent it on the same topic. However we haven’t even scratched the surface if we were really going to study that passage. There is so much there to learn.

When the wind is blowing – all those who ask for help always receive help. And I know Adeboye will receive help this year. All those who expect something always get something when the wind is blowing. Expectations are not disappointed when the wind is blowing and I know the expectations of some people will be met this year in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Just like the one who preached said earlier on, those who concentrate on God always get their hearts desire because the lame man here focussed on Peter and John and he got his miracle. The joy of it is that during the time when the wind is blowing, people always get more than they ask for. This man thought he was going to get money. Instead he got a miracle. He thought he was going to get a fish, he became a fisherman. When the wind is blowing several things are happening but tonight in this first section of the study I want to look at what happened to the lame man, what happened to the spectators and what happened to Peter.

First, at least everybody knows that the lame man was healed. Whenever the wind is blowing, healings occur that is why God had already promised that this year healings will be much, much more than before. In Mark 16:20, the Bible tells us that when the disciples were going according to what God asked them to do, God went with them and He kept on walking with them – God is going to walk with His Pastors this year and there will be healings galore. How many of you will receive your own? Healing for your body, healing for your finance, healing for your family, healing for your business, healing for your ministry, healings all round! If you will get your own say ‘Amen’ loud and clear. (Amen!)

But it is not just healing that that man got, he got a miracle. Whenever the wind is blowing miracles always occur. As you will discover in Acts 5:12 the Bible says that many miracles were wrought by the hand of the Apostles Because the wind started blowing miracles become easy. And then the third thing that happened to this man was that his yokes were destroyed. The yokes that bound him that made him to be somebody who will always be on one spot were destroyed in one day. Whenever the wind is blowing, yokes will be destroyed and all the yokes in your life will be destroyed this year. (Amen!) Isaiah 10:27 says that anointing destroys the yoke. Whenever the wind is blowing anointing is flowing and therefore yokes will be destroyed and I want you to prophesy to yourself – every yoke in my life shall be destroyed this year.

And number four that happened to this man was that the curse upon his life was broken. Not only broken but reversed! This man was a burden to himself, he was a burden to his relatives who were carrying him every day, he was a burden to worshippers who are going to church to worship. If they gave him money, it was money they could have spent to do something else. If they didn’t give him money their conscience will not allow them to rest. He as a burden to them but because the wind started to blow the curse on his life was destroyed and he who was a burden became a source of joy. This year I am not going to be a burden to anyone. I am going to be a source of joy. You better say it loud and clear.

And when the wind blew on this man, the fifth thing that happened was that he was moving forward. He began to walk and everybody knows that when you are walking you’ll be making progress. Whenever the wind is blowing there will always be forward movement or what we call progress. When you read Genesis 26. If you read it from 12 to 14 it talks about a man called Isaac and you will see what happened to him. You will see that this man started from a famine and moved forward from there. He received a hundred fold in the first year. God blessed him. He waxed great. He went forward. He grew until he became very great. Whatever is written about Isaac here shall be your lot this year in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

I need to explain to you something quickly. I want you to know that this year God is going to heal like never before. Even if I don‘t stop to tell you what He’s doing. I assure you by the time we finish you will see what He has done. (Amen!)

Whenever I find one that is extraordinary I may mention it. For example there is someone who had been sweating unusual sweating. If he is in an air-conditioned room he will still be sweating but The Lord asked me to tell you that’s over now. (Amen!)

There is another one for example, the cold you feel is inside the bone. Your own cold is not just in the body it is right deep inside the bone. It’s gone now it will never return.

Now this man was not only moving forward, he was not barely walking he was also leaping. To leap means to jump up. To jump up means to go upward. In other words there was promotion for him. Whenever the wind is blowing there is not only forward movement. There is also upward movement. somebody is going to be promoted this year. (Amen!) Because the Bible says in Psalm 75:6 It said promotion does not come from the east or from the west, or the south. It says God is the judge, He lifts up one and drops another. This year I am not going to be dropped. I am going to be lifted up. Let me hear how high you are going to be lifted by the way you shout Alleluia!

Thank you very much. In John 12:32 Jesus Christ said, if I be lifted up I will draw all men unto me. ‘Alleluia!’ means “Praise the Lord!” and when you are praising the Lord you are lifting Him up and as you are lifting Him up He said I would draw all men unto me. I pity those who can’t shout this year because they will see those of us who are shouters – they will see us on the top. Thank You Jesus! Alleluia! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Amen. I know people have accused me of asking people to shout too much. I will rather shout. I will keep shouting. I will keep on shouting until I reach the top. I will keep on shouting until I reach the very, very top. Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! May God promote you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

The next thing that happened to this lame man because the wind was blowing was that there was joy. You don’t have to be a prophet to know that that man was full of joy that day. The man who had been begging since he was born, tied on one spot like a goat. If the rain fell it fell on his head. He couldn’t move and all of a sudden he discovered he was free. Oh you could be sure he had joy like a river and this year the joy of somebody’s going to overflow because suddenly somebody’s going to wake up and realize that Jesus Christ said in John 16:24 It said: ask till your joy be full. This year I am going to pray. I am going to ask till my joy is full because this year as the wind will blow, prayers will be answered. Your prayers will be answered (Amen!) My prayers will be answered. Our prayers will be answered and our joy will be full.

The next thing that that happened to this man, which normally happens whenever the wind is blowing was that this man began to praise God. The Bible said he was walking, leaping and praising God. Is it not interesting that the Bible did not say he was walking and leaping and praising Peter? That would have been okay. He should have been praising Peter because he lifted him up. It should have been Peter now saying – no, no, no, don’t praise me, praise God. But somehow, deep down in the heart of this man he knew it wasn’t Peter that healed. He knew that there’s something called the wind of God, the Holy Spirit himself. This year you are going to praise God because your healing is not going to come from man but form God and when God decides to promote nobody can put you down. When God decides to open a way for you nobody can shut the door! Believe me honestly anybody that stands in you way this year you are going to use the fellow as a stepping stone! (Amen!) That’s why this man started praising God. Somebody’s going to praise God this year – his name is Adeboye!

In Psalm 75:1 David said: Unto thee O God do we give thanks for that thy name is near they wondrous works declare. This year somebody’s going to wake up in the morning and have something to shout about. (Amen!) This morning somebody will go to the office and by midday he will already be dancing and praising God..(Amen!) And this year when somebody’s about to sleep he will first of all come out and dance a little bit before going to bed. Who is that fellow by the way? Let me hear You shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Glory be to God!

You know my Daddy says that there’ll be many twins this year. (Amen!) How I wish I were younger I would have asked for two of them Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

And you know the next thing that happened to this man which is obvious.. people were asking him – are you the man? Are you the one who was the beggar? I was a beggar but now I’m free! This year there’ll be freedom –(Amen!) Freedom from sickness, freedom from disease, freedom from curses, freedom from yokes. freedom from poverty, freedom all the way round and therefore testimonies – that man had a testimony.

You know the reason why some people don’t have testimony since they don’t want one. They don’t come to the Holy Ghost Service expecting to give a testimony. They just come because they must come and this, this is not, I’m not trying to look down on anyone but this is common among those of us who are ministers. If I don’t come the GO will say where were you. I come to the Holy Ghost Service because I want to have a testimony. I come to be blessed! You may not believe it but that is why I come. I come to be blessed by the music. I come to blessed by the first preacher. And I want to be blessed even as I am preaching because I know that as I am preaching God will be speaking to me. I want to be blessed because when I ask you to pray I am praying also. And every prayer you pray I pray and I know God will answer my prayer – will he answer your own? Oh so there were testimonies and I will be one of those who will give testimonies this year.

Psalm 89:1 I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever. With my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. I can go on and on and tell you all the things that happened to the lame man. When the wind is blowing, whatever happened to the lame man can happen to you.

But then let us look at what happened to the crowd. Let’s start with the relatives of the man. Because the wind blew the burden that they have been carrying, everyday for forty years was lifted. This year, every burden that is not your own shall be lifted in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Jesus said in Matthew 11:28 he said Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy-laden and I will give you rest. somebody is going to find rest this year. (Amen!)

What about the on-lookers. The Bible said they were filled with wonder and amazement. Whenever the wind blows there’s always wonders, amazementbecause according to Isaiah 9:6, they said his name shall be called wonderful. This year, everyday in the house of somebody there’ll be something wonderful happening. I’ve been given the testimony of a sister, almost everywhere I went in December, we went to Lokoja on go-a-fishing and because we were going to spend the night there we attended the last crusade of the evening. It was a big crowd on a fairly big field and people were singing and dancing. And you know some people were dancing by just small movement and some people were not even dancing at all. Some people clapped as if there hands were hurting them but there was a woman there she had one big shekere – you have to notice the shekere, even if you don’t notice anything else! She was carrying a baby on her back and she was dancing all over the place – beating her shekere all over the place! All round, everybody was watching her and finally I asked the Pastor: Ah, this woman, her case is different!” “Oh yes Daddy, she was barren for 18 years. came to the Convention and God gave her a baby – the baby at her back – that’s why she’s dancing, that’s why her dancing was different from that of others. somebody’s dancing is going to beat that of everybody this year! (Amen!) Who is that fellow? Let me hear You shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

And then another thing that happened among the crowd was that there was revival in the church.

Thank You Father! The Lord said double promotion is coming for somebody this year.. (Amen!) Glory be to God!

You know in the church before the wind blew this man inside they were singing as if they wanted to sing a little child to sleep – Holy, holy, holy… And then this man came in –threw open the door – walking, leaping, praising God and he stopped the preacher, it disturbed everybody and nobody could say why must you do this? Because he was praising God. This year, at least in the Redeemed Christian Church of God there’ll be a revival of praise. (Amen!) I say there’ll be a revival of praise! (Amen!) Anybody who doesn’t like it when you are praising God, will leave the church for us Why should you be angry because I’m praising my God? Why should you be angry because I’m dancing for Jesus. I’m going to dance this year! I’m going to shout this year! I’m going to clap this year! I’m going to praise God this year! I’m going to ride on the devil this year! If you are one of us shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

I’m sorry if I disturb those of you who are ladies and gentlemen. This year I have no time for ladies and gentlemen, I have only time for those who are radicals for Jesus Christ! Those who are going to shout! Those who are going to sing! Those who are going to dance! Those who are going to be healed! Those who are going to be well! Those who are going to be free! Those who are going to be used by God! Let me hear You shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Good!

We have been too gentle for too long. So gentle that the devil has got many of us caged in. We are breaking loose this year! The Wind of Change is going to blow away every wall of Jericho! (Amen!) The Wind of Change is going to blow wide open the Red Sea before us.

You will remember the story of a friend of mine who was formerly the High Court Judge of Mid-West State before they broke it into Edo and Delta. And he got born-again. In the church God filled his heart. He saw how close he was to hell. He was always going to church before – perfect gentleman – I mean Chief Judge you have to be … decent! Then he got born-again. He said, “Me you mean I am on my way to Heaven? And I would have died and gone to hell but for salvation of Jesus?” So one day the Christians of Benin were going on parade through the streets and he was leading, he was dancing, you know, swinging his garments and he was praising God and somebody saw him – Chief Judge – so he went and reported him to the Governor. The following day Monday, the Governor sent for him. He came and said, “Your Excellency I’m here sir.” The Governor said, ” I heard that yesterday, you, the Chief Judge of our state, you were dancing in the street. He said, “Your Excellency, is that why you called me?” That one said yes. “Ah, I was dancing for the one who made me the Chief Judge! I was dancing for the one who saved my soul. I was dancing for the one who kept me alive!” He said, “You haven’t seen anything yet. May I dance a little for you here?” Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Now let me look at Peter. I know we’ve spent a lot of time looking at Peter in this story. Then let me just remind you of some things. You know until the wind blew Peter did not know that there are certain things inside of him. He didn’t know that the Almighty God had given him the power to heal. It was after the wind blew that he laid his hand on that lame man that he discovered that there was power inside him. There are many of you here that the Almighty God would use mightily this year. (Amen!) There are some of you here, everybody you touch this year would be healed. (Amen!) I know you don’t believe but say ‘Amen’ all the same.

Peter knew that Jesus said, “if you ask anything in my name I will do it.” He knew John 14:14. He knew Acts 1:8 He knew that Jesus Christ said you shall receive power after the Holy Ghost is come on you. But it was only after the wind blew that he discovered that the power had really come. Tell the fellow next to you: “Because the wind is blowing. I am no longer ordinary” You better say it as if you mean it. I’m going to ask you to so something you haven’t done before. Shake hand with your neighbour and tell the fellow you are shaking the hand of power.” Say it as if you mean it because that is the truth! If you believe that shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

When the wind blew the anointing in Peter began to blowThe anointing of God in your life will begin to flow this year. (Amen!) When the wind blew Peter began to have fulfillment at last. You know many of us we wake up we go to work. They pay our salary at the end of the month whether enough or not enough at least we are managing. We just keep on going, keep on going, no fulfillment, no joy – nothing. I mean look at the faces of many workers and you know that they are working just to survive but when the wind begins to blow fulfillment comes, joy comes, satisfaction comes, whatever you do you do it with excitement.

I remember when I was at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Well students are students, some are poorer than others. Those who are very, very poor they give them what they called some work to do so they can give them money to pay for their school fees. One of the work that they normally give them is that they will collect the plates of their colleagues and go and wash. And you see many people in that category you can see sorrow on their faces. But there was one he was different, he will smile at you before he takes your plate! And even the way he will do it – he makes yanga with it! And you look at him and you say, ‘Hi man! Give me the plate man!” I mean he was so different I had to ask him, Oga you are washing the plates of your colleagues and you are so happy! He told me – there are many, many people who will never get to the University. I am washing plates today but tomorrow when I become a graduate somebody will wash my plates. Give me that plate man! I know my tomorrow will be alright.” How many of you are sure that your tomorrow will be alright? In advance? In advance? Let me hear You shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

The Almighty God said I know the thoughts that I think towards you – thoughts of good not of evil that we might have an expected end. The Almighty God said before I formed you in the belly, I knew you. While you were still in the womb I have already ordained you. I want you to know one thing my brothers and my sister, but for the fact that God has a great purpose for your life, you would already be dead. You know how many people entered this year and are already dead? But God has a purpose for you – whether the devil likes it or not – the wind is already blowing. (Amen!) Whether the devil likes it or not, every obstacle is going to crumble. (Amen!) Whether the devil likes it or not, progress has started. (Amen!) Promotion is coming. (Amen!) Testimonies are coming. (Amen!) Joy is here. (Amen!) Praises will come! (Amen!) revival has started. (Amen!) Let me hear You shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

That’s why I know that the only one who can go through this year and still end it with sorrow is the only one who Jesus says come unto me and he says I’m not coming! He’s the only one who Jesus says surrender you life and he says, I’m not surrendering. He’s the only one who Jesus says come into light and he says I want to stay in darkness. So I’m going to stop briefly and give an opportunity to those of you who are yet to be born again to surrender your life to Jesus.

If you are here and you are not yet born again and you know God is calling you – surrender, surrender to Me, let Me take over from now, let Me change everything for you. If you want to say ‘Yes Lord, I surrender!’ come forward quickly tonight. He will save your souls tonight. He will save your soul tonight…. I can see some of them running. I know this is a great year. Those of you who are already born again, this is the time to rejoice! You should be excited that people are coming to Christ! You should be clapping that people are coming to surrender their lives to Jesus. You shouldn’t be just watching – you should be excited!

If you are coming to give your life to Jesus hurry up! hurry up! hurry up! Come and give your life to Him! He will receive you as you are. He will save Your soul. He will wash you in His Blood. He will forgive all your sins and everything will become brand new. Let the wind of change blow every sin away. Keep coming. keep coming. hurry up! hurry up those of you who are coming. I know some of you are coming from a long distance but keep coming, keep coming, keep coming. This year if you want to clap for Jesus, clap for Him and of you don’t want to clap put your hands in your pocket. hurry up! those of you who want to give your life to Jesus. He’s calling you now! He will save your soul. He will be merciful unto you. He will forgive your sins. Keep coming. Keep coming. Keep coming. This is your year of joy, this is your year of salvation, this is the year that God is going to answer your prayers so Keep coming. Keep coming. Keep coming. Those of you who are still on the way. Hurry up! Hurry up! He’s waiting for you. He’s waiting. He’s waiting. He’s waiting. This is your day of salvation.

Now there might be some of us who have very important testimonies to give. Please go to the back of the altar the Pastors will be there waiting to attend to you. While we wait for our brothers and our sisters who have just joined the Kingdom of God. The elders have a saying – it is only those who know how to think, who will know how to say thank you. I don’t know about you but God has been good to me and I want you to just sit down and think of all that God has done for you in the past one year. I remember some years ago. I was in my first office in this camp ground and I was trying to prepare a thanksgiving sermon for the New Year and it just occurred to me, what is there to thank God for?

There were so many things I asked God to do that year I didn’t see results. So as usual I turn to Him and I said, “Well God I don’t know what to thank You for. Can you tell me? He said, “Take your pen and your paper let me tell you some.” He said, How many people sleep and don’t wake up? I don’t know how many but I know there are some? So you agree that when you sleep and you wake you it’s a miracle.. That’s one, that’s one! He said, “In that case how many times did you get that miracle in the past one year?” 365 He said if you are saying thank you for each one then how many thank you do you have to say.

Then He asked me. How many people travel and never get to where they are going? Not because they did anything wrong – they are driving on their own side of the road and somebody who is drunk on the other side jumps the road and comes to collide with them. How many times did you travel in the past one year and you arrived? I calculated the number – it was serious.. and I began to pick it one by one. He reminded me of the story of a man who sat down to eat pounded yam, took the first morsel, somehow it went the wrong way and he was coughing and coughing – before they took him to the hospital he was dead. So He asked me how many times have you eaten in the past one year and I guided every morsel direct to the stomach. I want you to sit down brethren for a few minutes, just think of all that God has done in the past one year – each time you slept and he woke you up, each time you were hungry and he provided the food, every time you ate and the food didn’t become poison, every time you drank water and the water did not choke you and you can breath all the way down – just think, just think for five minutes and then we will praise Him after that – just five minutes! Think!

He has been so good. Brethren, I want us to stand on our feet now and I want you to thank Him, I want you to thank Him, even for one thing – do you know how many enemies you have? Do you know that the greatest of them are living in the same house as you? Thank the Almighty God that He has not handed you over to the enemy. Open your mouth now and thank Him. Say, Father, I thank You that You have not handed me over to my enemies. Praise His Holy Name! Praise Him! Praise Him! Magnify His Holy Name! Say Father, I just want to bless Your Holy Name that You have not handed me over to my enemies. Bless His Holy Name. Thank Him, Thank Him for that! Maybe there are other things that He has done for You that You want to thank Him for. Just go ahead and glorify His Holy Name – He’s worthy to be praised, He’s worthy to be adored! Thank Him! For every day that He woke you up. When you were sleeping, He was awake. He never sleeps, He never slumbers – He’s your night guard, the real night guard. He’s the One who kept you alive until today. He’s the One who had been feeding you. He’s the One who had been clothing you . He’s the One who didn’t let you go crazy. Open your mouth and praise Him – only the Living can praise the Lord as we are doing today open your mouth and praise Him. Thank Him that He has not handed you over to your enemies. He’s worthy to be praises, worthy to be praised. Open your mouth and thank Him!

I told my children in December, I said miracles always happen suddenly. Between Alleluia!- alleluia! a miracle can happen. Father, You are wonderful, You are kind, You are great there is no one like You! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Father, You are the One who said we should ask till our joy be full. This year we shall ask and our joy shall be full. So let it be Lord In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!) Praise the Lord! God bless you! You may be seated!

Before we go into a session of prayer I want to share a little more with you on that passage we have just read – Acts 3:1-11 And to take us a little deeper because this year we will do things slightly differently from what we used to do in the past year. I know that there are categories of people who come to the Holy Ghost Service. There are those who are coming for the first time and I want to rejoice with them because you can come for the first time and receive your miracle. I know a woman for example who had four different killer diseases. She had hypertension, she was diabetic, she had typhoid fever and she had heart problem and she came to Holy Ghost Service for the first time and as she was coming in she heard from the altar: there is someone here with the following problems and God says I am healing you. And she said only God could have seen me where I was because I was coming for the first time!” And that was the end of her problems. And any of you here for the first time, I decree in the Name of Jesus, tonight will be the end of all your problems!

Then there are those who have been coming, They come because they enjoy the program but some of them feel that they don’t hear too much anymore. … but this year we want to do something new. You will come, you’ll be blessed – I didn’t hear your Amen (Amen!) You will be healed. (Amen!) You will receive miracles. You will see signs and wonders. (Amen!) But you will also develop spiritually because you will learn more because the ultimate plan of God for us according to Isaiah 37:31 … is that we should grow downwards in our roots and that our fruits should grow upwards. So as we study the Word of God this year we shall be putting in a bit of Digging Deep. For example those who came for the December Holy Ghost Service know that what we did was real Digging Deep because not too many people came so we just turned it into a Bible Study and many of them have spoken to me since then: “Daddy, how we wish every Holy Ghost Service will be just like that!” So I said, we will balance it – there will be the one that is for everybody and then there will be the one that will be for those of us who want to grow deeper. Now those of you who want to grow deeper – let your Alleluia! shake the ground! (Alleluia!)

From the story we had already looked at we found that there are 3 categories of people in the world – there are those who watch things happen. They are always watching things happen – they are the people who keep the stadium full whenever there is going to be a football match. They are the ones who pay for the people who are playing football – they watch things happen. and then there are those people to whom things happen. These are the people who give testimonies, they are the ones who receive miracles, they are the people who receive healings.. They are the ones who will come and say ‘Praise God! I was this, now I am this!’ and then category number 3. There are those who cause things to happen. People who will make sure that miracles will happen. People who will see to it that there will be healings. People who will see to it that there will be deliverance. People who will pray and fast so that there will be a tremendous success. Tonight now, I want you to make up your mind, for the rest of your life – which category are you going to belong.

So let me talk quickly about spectators. They are always the majority. Always much, much, more than everybody else put together. If you look at 2 Kings 2. If you look at verses 3,5 and 7 again and again you hear the Bible talk about the sons of the prophet – they are many. Always there, watching Elijah and Elisha. They talk when something is about to happen. When they come to a program like this you will see everybody sitting down having a wonderful time and they are strolling around, talking. At the time miracle are about to happen, they will go and drink a bottle of coke. It is at the time that the Holy Spirit wants to move that they will remember they forgot something in their car. I will never be a spectator. I refuse to be a spectator. My head refuses to be a spectator! The spectators are always unserious ones. When everybody is shouting and sweating as they are praying they look at them and say, ‘What’s happening to them?’ When some people are praying, at times they get so worked up you see them boxing they wonder what’s happening! They are spectators. They always end up inferior in any situation. I am not going to spend much time on that because there’s none of us who would be a spectator from today onwards.

The second group are the testifiersThey are always determined to have a testimony. And I am particularly happy that the man who is interpreting with me today is noted among the Pastors as ‘Pastor Testimony’ because every month before we say ‘ah..’ He will say, “Sir, I have a testimony…’ And Adeboye is one of those people.. How many of you will become testifiers from tonight? Let me hear You shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

You know again and again when we say “those who have testimonies – come forward!” Or when we say, “It is time for testimonies..” Some people will say, ‘O God – they should let us go now.’ Those are the spectators. And you will see some people – dancing forward – “Ah-ah! My time has come. I am now going to testify.” Somebody will be a testifier tonight. If you are the one let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

How do we know those who are testifiers, those to whom things happen? Because they are determined to have a testimony. They just make up their mind that they are going to have a testimony. Dc you know that some people from the day the Holy Ghost started – every first Friday of the month – they fast before they come? Because they don’t want to just come for coming sake. They want to come for something that will lead to a testimony and they are always alert, seeking for an opportunity to claim something that is coming from God.

When you read 2 Kings 2:9-10 When Elijah said to Elisha Ask what I shall give you before I be taken away from you. Before he finished speaking Elisha was already speaking because he was alert. Those who would become testifiers don’t doze during Holy Ghost Service because they don’t know when God is going to mention their case; because they don’t know when a word will come which will meet their need; because they don’t know which alleluia is the one that is going to pull down their wall of Jericho! So they are always on their toes, always alert, ready to seize opportunity and whenever the opportunity comes they grab it and they grab it vocally.

Elijah said to Elisha, Oh you have asked for a hard thing but if you see me when I am being taken away from you you will get what you want. Elisha smiled. See you? You can be sure I will see you. And when God came to take Elijah away, as soon as he was being taken away, what did Elijah do? He shouted! “Papa I see you, I see you! Oh the horses of Israel, the chariots of Israel and the horsemen thereof!” He shouted. Do you know that when we come to Holy Ghost Service unless we are shouting some people never open their mouth whereas there are some people before the Pastor prays a prayer they have already said ‘Amen!” When they hear … ‘Oh Thank You Daddy!’.. anything that is coming, they haven’t heard yet, they have already assumed ‘that must be me!’ And I know it is going to be well with somebody here tonight (Amen!)

You know I have an interpreter – my children were talking about him the other day. They said, “Oh we love Pastor so-and-so!” I say, “Why do you love him?” And they said, “Whenever he is interpreting for you, any time you say something good, before he interprets it he will first of all take it for himself! He will say ’Amen!’ Then he will now interpret!” I say “I didn’t know you children are watching.” How many of you believe that this is going to be your year? .” How many of you believe that from now on you’ll be free from sickness, from pain, from sorrow…? Let me hear You shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Those who will be testifiers, those to whom things happen, they don’t allow anything to hinder them. When Elisha saw Elijah going, he tore his garments. You know why he tore his garments? Because he knew he was going to get a new one. You know we have a song that we used to sing …. that means God takes the garment of suffering away from me. Elisha may not be smiling. I have seen you and you told me if I see you I will get what I want. This garment of a servant. I won’t have it anymore and very soon a new one came. Today, every garment of suffering., Every garment of sorrow , every garment of slavery, every garment of poverty shall be taken away from you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Those who want to testify, those are going to be testifiers they don’t allow somebody who is talking to disturb them. Eh-eh. I don’t come here to chat, I come to receive. After I have received what I want to receive, when we are on the way home, you can talk as much as you want … no, no, no, no, we are not going to be friends … but what I’ve come for that’s what I will get. somebody will get a miracle here today. (Amen!)

And these people not only do they seize opportunity, they walk in faith. As soon as Elisha got the mantle that fell from Elijah he said, I’m going to test it after all I know what my master did. He rolled it, he smote Jordan – let me do the same thing. Where is the Lord God of Elijah? The God of Elijah said I am here. I will honour anybody who will act in faith. Tonight I want you to make up your mind that each time you come to the Holy Ghost Service you come in faith. Don’t wait till they ask you to check your body. The moment you hear the first Alleluia – just believe that that is for you, that your miracle is already within that first Alleluia. Don’t wait till they say of you can’t walk before begin to walk! Start walking, interrupt the service, let your miracle be the one that will cause the Pastor to say no need to preach anymore… and I believe that’s going to happen to somebody here tonight. (Amen!) Because that’s the way God works.

I’ve shared the testimony with you – we went to hold Holy Ghost Service in Holland and if people are cold they are really cold in Holland. Praise God Amen It’s not Amen its Alleluia!). I say let somebody praise the Lord…okay Alleluia!) Ahhh! even the best of preacher can become discouraged. But there was a man, they brought him from another nation. He was dying. There were all kinds of gadgets tied to his body. They carried him in. When he came we were preaching. He expects us to stop preaching and come and pray for him. Of course we kept on. So he told those who brought him: “Take me home. It is time to take my drugs.” Wait… after the preaching…. He said. “Let me go! You want me to die here?” So they carried him. And as they were going, when they got to the door, the Almighty God hit him. The power of God came on him. He jumped out of the chair and he began to move towards the altar and everybody began to shout… don’t tell me you are a gentleman that you don’t know how to shout? After all when your team scores a goal, you know how to shout! And Jesus is going to score a goal here tonight/. (Amen!) In the life of somebody.. who is that fellow? Let me hear You shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Those who will be testifiers will always have testimony. One way or another God will arrange for them to have a testimony. You see the Bible says God gives seed to the sower. Anybody who wants to sow God will provide the seed. Anyone who wants to testify, God will give the testimony. God knows that there are some people, it doesn’t matter what you do for them, they will never testify! So He will only do one and stop. There are some people they always want to give testimony so God will ensure that one way or another before it is testimony time they will get one. And I will be the one that will give the testimony tonight. And you know what? Those who always testify they always end up on top of the spectators. Whether you believe it or not God is always promoting those who give testimonies because each time you give testimonies you are lifting Jesus higher and like I told you earlier on, He said, when I am lifted up I will draw men unto me. If you lift me up I will lift you up too. If you praise me I will give you something to praise me about. You know Elisha He became the boss of the spectators. I’m going to be number one. I say I will be number one, I will be head, I won’t be tail. I’ll be first, I won’t be last! You can’t even say that one to yourself.

And then category number three – that’s the one I like the most – the people who call miracles to happen. People in the category of Peter, People in the category of Elijah – the channel of blessing; the people who will allow the anointing of God through them so that somebody who wants to have a testimony will have a testimony. How do we know them? Well if you read the story in 2 Kings 2 :11 you will find that they are the people who fly with the wind. The Bible said, Elijah went up by the whirlwind to heaven. I told my children after the Congress … in the morning devotion, we continued with the study and I told them there are various things you can do with the wind.

When the wind is blowing you can flow with it and that can give you progress that will take you above your mountains. You can hide from it and say blow past. And if you like you can stand in its way and say, Wind, you are not going to blow past. Every tree that says that the wind of God should not blow past that tree will be uprooted. (Amen!) Every obstacle in your way this year, the wind of God will blow them off this year. (Amen!)

Who are those people who cause miracles to happen? They are the people who fly with the wind. The Bible says that they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount with wings as eagles. Who are these people who cause miracles to happen? They are the prayer warriors. They are the people who know how to hang on to God and say God we will not let you go unless miracles happen. You may not be aware but there are some people for more than four years now, every first Thursday they will come hear from 9pm to 3 am crying to God, praying, crying “Father tomorrow is Holy Ghost Service, You must perform miracles, You must perform wonders, You must do something great!” Every first Thursday, they come. Before you know what’s happening they had already set the place on fire and of course you can bet I am always around.

But these people not only cause miracles to happen to those of us who would come on Friday, you can be sure God is just. Before we come He had already blessed them and so tonight I want you to choose –which category are you going to belong? Are you going to be a spectator? Are you going to be the one that something will happen to and give a testimony. Ate you going to be one of those people who from now on will cause something to happen. You know some people brought you and some of us have never brought anyone to the Holy Ghost Service since we’ve been coming. Those who bring others they are among those who cause miracles to happen because when you bring them and they receive their miracles and they begin to testify you can put your hand on your chest and say “Glory be to God! the one I brought received a miracle, the barren that I brought has become fruitful, the sick that I brought has been healed, the one that was going to well that I brought is now on the way to heaven Glory be to God!! I am not a spectator. Not only so I have my own testimonies, I am now causing testimonies to happen!”

Tonight we are going to pray. I am not going to beg you to pray but one thing is certain. Miracles are going to happen tonight. Some are already happening, more will happen and the prayer we are going you pray they are going to be violent prayers. If you are the sleeping type, you can go on sleeping. God tested it this year, He said those who have been sleeping before will be able to sleep more soundly because the wind is blowing. When I said, “Daddy please,” He said, “No my son, this is not a question of please.” He said “you don’t even need to be a prophet to know that if somebody is dozing and then the cool wind blows what will happen? You fall asleep completely!” He said the sleeper will sleep more this year because the wind is blowing. I pray that I will not be one of the sleepers. But He said those who are already on fire they will burn more fervently. He said “that is not even prophecy too, its something you could see.” He said “When there is a little fire and it is burning and the wind blows on it, it becomes a big flame. I said God that’s what I will be this year!” How many of you will burn for Jesus Christ this year? Let me hear you say “Amen!” loud and clear.

Now stand on your feet we are going to pray. This prayer you forget everybody because it is you and God. And you are going to open your mouth and shout loud and clear – I’ve told you ladies and gentlemen you can pray your own like you like, the rest of us will pray our own like our own. Father. I say lift your voice to Him and say Father, every burden that Satan has put on my head, remove today O Lord! Come on talk to the Almighty God! Father, Every burden that Satan has put on my head, remove now! Every burden that the enemy has placed on my head – remove now, remove now! …. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

You’ve tried. Like I told those of you who came for the Watch Night Service. One man said, my parents have ten children and these parents they know the voice of every one of them even in it he dark and that whenever there is any problem, the one that cries the loudest ins the one that gets the first attention out of the ten. God knows your voices. He knows the first one to attend to tonight. I want you to lift your voice to Him and say, “Father! Every load of the enemy .. every load of sickness, every load of poverty, every load of sorrow send back to sender, send back to sender! ” Lift up your voice and cry unto the Almighty God Every load of sickness and disease, of poverty, of sorrow, every load of the enemy in my life, in my home – Father! Send back to sender! Send back to sender tonight! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Now you are going to call on Him and say “Father – I didn’t hear you.. Every mountain trying to block my way this year, whether it is a human being or demons – uproot them O Lord! Let’s call on the Almighty God Every mountain –let the Wind of Change uproot them! Every mountain that wants to stand in my way this year whether a human being or a demon – uproot O Lord. Let the Wind of Change uproot! Let the Wind of Change uproot! That Your Name might be glorified Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

You call on Him and say “Father, every curse in my family, change it to a blessing!” Let’s cry unto Almighty God. Every curse in my family, no matter how long it’s been there, change to a blessing Father! Change every curse into a blessing! Every curse Lord! Change to a blessing! Change to a blessing! Tonight, let every curse become a blessing, every curse that had been in my family all these years, change to a blessing Lord, change to a blessing! …. Blessed be Your Holy Name! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

The lame man before the temple saw what is good, what is beautiful but something is tying him down so he can’t reach where he should be. You are going to call on the Almighty God, “Father anything that is tying me down, let the wind blow it away! Let’s call on the Almighty God! Anything tying me down, let your wind blow it away! Anything that is not allowing me to reach my goal, Father anything that is not allowing me to reach my goal, anything that is not allowing me to achieve my potential in life, in ministry, in anointing, in power, in revelation knowledge – anything holding me back – let Your wind blow away! let Your wind blow away! let Your wind blow away! let Your wind blow away! let Your wind blow away! Thank You Father! … let Your wind blow away! Thank You Father! Glory be to God! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

When the wind is blowing, anyone that flows with it will be propelled forward. Call on the Almighty God and say “Father, let Your wind give me rapid progress! ” Call on the Almighty God! “Father! Let Your wind propel me forward and give me rapid progress! Rapid, rapid, rapid, rapid progress this year! Rapid acceleration Lord! The kind of progress I’ve not seen before! Let Your wind give me rapid progress, rapid progress… move forward fast! Let the wind blow me forward fast, rapidly.. let the acceleration be rapid this year. Thank You Jesus! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Those who fly with the wind they go higher, higher. I want you to cry to the Lord! Come on cry to Him! Father, this year, take me from glory to glory, promotion to promotion, success to success! Call on the Almighty God! Take me higher O Lord! Glory to glory! Promotion to promotion , success to success take me higher O Lord! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Lord! … Take me higher Lord! Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

I am sure you don’t want to be a spectator this year. I am sure you want your testimonies to be many this year but I am also sure that you prefer even to be a channel of blessing. Cry to the Almighty God Say, “Father! Make me a channel of blessing!” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! Make me a channel of blessing this year! Not as spectator but a channel of blessing! Empower me Lord so that I’ll be a blessing to others – a blessing to their physical needs, a blessing to their material needs, a blessing to their spiritual needs Lord! Make me a channel of blessing! Almighty God Make me a channel of blessing! This year like never before Make me a channel of blessing! that Your Name might be glorified Make me a channel of blessing! A mighty channel of blessing! Make me a mighty, mighty channel of blessing! Make me a channel of blessing Lord! This year Make me a channel of blessing! Make me a channel of blessing! Thank You my Father! Make me a mighty, mighty channel of blessing! Everywhere I go this year let me be a mighty channel of blessing! Carry Your miracles, Your signs, Your wonders to all the nations of the world! Everywhere I go near and far, Make me a channel of blessings to the needy, to the sick, to the poor, to the oppressed, to the high and mighty, to the low and lonely, Make me a channel of blessing to everyone Lord. Make me a channel of blessing to the glory of Your Holy Name.

On a daily basis Lord, fill my mouth with laughter. Everywhere I go fill my mouth with laughter. Thank You Jesus! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Now surely you have some people who are precious to you – husbands, wives, children, parents, relatives, pray for them now, wish them well – pray for them! Pray for those who are precious to you. Ask God to do something mighty in their lives. Mention their names. Present them to God one by one… Glory be to God! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Now pray for yourself! You know what you need. I am sure you want the very best, Don’t limit God! Go all the way this time. Just ask the Almighty God for the impossible! Ask Him! Go ahead! Ask God for the impossible! He’s the Almighty! He’s Jehovah El Shaddai! …. Thank You! Almighty May Your Name be glorified. Let’s begin to bring our prayers to a close . Thank You Jesus! In Jesus’ mighty Name we pray! (Amen!)

Finally, I want you to join hands now with your neighbours. The Bible says we should love our neighbours like ourselves. It is time now for you to pray for your neighbour. Tell the Almighty God, Just say, “Father, let the joy of this brother, this sister be full! Go ahead talk to the Almighty! Father! King of Kings!! Lord of Lords!! The I AM THAT I AM!!

Father let it be well with them (Amen!) In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Go ahead give the Lord a big hand. Come on! Thank You Father! Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) The one whose prayer will be answered first – shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) God bless you! You may be seated!

Our Year of Jubilee and some very marvelous things will happen this year. The Almighty God has told me that it doesn’t matter how far we enlarge the auditorium, it will never contain the people. (Amen!) But all the same we will keep on expanding and since this is the dry season we will want to dig the foundations and put the necessary concrete for the extension to the auditorium – going that way. Now those of you who will love to be partakers of this..

If you want ministration, laying on of hands it is now time so ministers please let’s take position….

… I believe that the Wind of Change is blowing and we need to give Him a good thanksgiving offering this morning. You are worthy to be magnified, accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! Accept the offerings of Your children and I pray that they will always have something to thank You about. Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

.. There is something we want to do now which will affect only a very, well only some of us. You see something happened when I was praying, preparing for the New Year. It is my tradition whenever I enter the New Year that the first money I spend, I want to spend it for God and I always say Lord I am spending first for you so that the devil will not touch my money in the year. And as I was praying, thinking of what I was going to give at that time God spoke to me and said, because of this offering that you are about to give, your enemies will never catch up with you again. I jumped for joy. How many of you don’t want your enemy ever to catch up with you? Let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

But then as I went on the Almighty God said, that promise is not only for you but for all those who will come to the Watch Night Service. So I rejoiced. I shared that with those who came and one of the testimonies is what you have just heard now. A sister got home and got a gift of 500,000 naira. But after the Watch Night Service, like Oliver Twist, I asked the Lord, Please Daddy, help me – there are some of my children who didn’t come to the Watch Night Service and I’m the one who told them that they could hold the Watch Night Service in their own churches. Can You extend this mercy to those who will come to the first Holy Ghost Night? And Daddy said to me. I have told you, ask till your joy be full. So I obtained that one for some of you.

It’s not for everybody. Those of you who were at Watch Night Service don’t come again, don’t be selfish. And even those of you who didn’t come. This thing is not compulsory. It is for those people who want their enemies never again to catch up with them. Now the way He said we should do it, we did it during the Watch Night Service, Is that the ushers will not come to collect the money from you because He didn’t want anybody to stand between you and Him directly when He wants to send you that promise. So those of you who didn’t come and who want that particular blessing for himself, herself you will come yourself to any f the buckets here and drop that offering there. And make it an offering that you yourself will say to Almighty God with this offering I am banishing my enemies far away from me. I will implore the band one more time .. I want you to sing that song too – it’s a prophecy I want you to sing it too. It simply saysDeath chase me, chase me and couldn’t catch up with me because I have God as my supporter… So let’s stand on our feet. Sing that song for a minute and receive our final blessing…..

Father, I thank You for Your mercy, for Your kindness for Your generosity, I thank You for loving me in a special way. I thank You for loving my own, my children specially. Thank you for extending Your promise to Your children who have come to day. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! Father, like You promised from now on keep the enemies far away from Your children in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) As far as the East is from the West. So far let the enemies be behind Your children in Jesus’ Name! From now on whatever these your children will touch, let it prosper. (Amen!) Wherever they turn let ways be opened unto them. (Amen!) Wherever they go, let Your Presence go with them. (Amen!) Let them find favour with God and with men. (Amen!) Before the sun sets today let them have testimonies. (Amen!) By the time we meet again Father, don’t let one night be enough for testimonies. (Amen!) Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!) Now let somebody shout the biggest Alleluia!

Alleluia!                                                                                             Pastor E. A. Adeboye

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN……?

4th of February, 2002

If you are confident that God is still on your side shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) With children like these surely our tomorrow will be all right. I f you believe that shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) I want you to shout ‘Alleluia!’ so the devil will know and leave these children alone Alleluia! I know we have done a lot of worshipping Him tonight but we can never praise Him enough Like I said to the Pastors, the events of the past week is evidence to all of us that it is possible to wake up in the morning and be dead before the day is out… that you don’t need to be sick to die, you don’t have to have a motor accident to die, there’s no need for hired killers to die. When God says ‘time up’ it is time up. So the fact that we are alive today is simply by His grace. We are not better than any of the people who had died. So more than anything else we need to praise Him. I want you to humble yourself before the Almighty God the One who has kept you alive and just praise Him.

You are worthy, you are worthy, you are worthy to be magnified …. you are worthy Lord…… let’s worship the Almighty God, let’s magnify His Holy Name, He’s worthy, He’s worthy to be praised, He’s worthy to be magnified. There’s no one like Him. All power belongs to Him. Worship Him. Thank Him for life. Magnify His Holy Name for keeping you alive, for keeping me alive. Thank Him for His grace, His mercy, His support, His faithfulness – praise Him! He is worthy to be praised! Father we bless Your Name because You are good, no doubt about it at all. You are wonderful, You are great, You are powerful, You are loving, You are holy, You are glorious, You are mighty! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Father Glory be to Your Holy Name! Thank You for loving us, Thank You for standing by us. Thank You for Your patience, Thank You for Your patience Father, Thank You for Your patience! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Lord Tonight Father glorify Your Name. Save souls tonight. Heal tonight. Deliver tonight. Bless tonight. Perform miracles tonight. Glorify Your Name tonight. At the end of everything, let us be able to praise You again In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Shake hands with one or two people and tell them tomorrow will be alright. And then you may be seated.

The Lord told us at the beginning of the year, He said, concerning Nigeria there are three short messages so that they’ll be easy to remember. One, those who are committed to Christ have nothing to fear. Two, Nigeria must be handled with lots and lots of prayer this year. Three, those who have important relatives should intensify the evangelism for the salvation of their souls before it is too late. Once God had spoken we need to take Him seriously. I don’t claim to be a prophet. I am a Pastor and by special grace I hear form Him once in a while. Let’s take Him seriously. This can be the best year of our lives if we are committed to Christ.

2 Kings 2:19-22 – we will have to move very fast because we have a lot of ground to cover tonight.

19 And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren.

20 And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him.

21 And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.

22 So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake.

We’ve been discussing what happens when the wind is blowing because for the world as a whole this is the year of the Wind of Change. For the Redeemed Christian Church of God as well. It is also our Year of Jubilee.

Now shortly before this passage we have just read, the wind had blown. Two people on a journey, a father and a son, Elijah and Elisha and the wind blew, separated the two of them, and took the father to heaven and left the son behind bit the son was not left behind – he received a double portion of the spirit of his father and then he crossed over river Jordan to the side of Jericho and the men of Jericho saw him and ran to him and said, ‘Sir, our city looks beautiful. On the surface, everything is nice, but sir, we have some deep-rooted problems – our water is horrible, The land is barren. We are groaning under a curse pronounced on our city years ago by a very great man of God. Can you please help us? And Elijah said unto them Bring me a new cruse, put salt therein.’ They said, “Yes sir, ”They ran brought a new cruse, filled with very good salt and Elijah said, where is the source of your water and they took him there. And when he got there he cast the salt in and made a pronouncement. He said, Thus saith the Lord, I have healed these waters.” May all the waters of you r life be healed tonight. (Amen!) He said, form now on there’ll be no more death. I don’t know how many of you can say Amen to that? (Amen!) And he said from now on there’ll be no more barrenness. The Bible said that the waters were healed from that time till today according to the word of Elisha which he spake. Now let’s look at this story.I pray that the Almighty God will give us somehow, an extension of time.

The men of Jericho had been under a curse, pronounced by Joshua on them several years before. And all along Elijah was with them. The men of Jericho didn’t know that they could go to Elijah and ask that the curse be destroyed. The didn’t appreciate the man of God in their midst. One day they saw Elijah and his son, Elisha, passing through Jericho again and they got to River Jordan and they were all watching. Where are they going? They have no boat. They don’t look like people who can swim. Then they saw something strange happen. They saw the man of God took his mantle, rolled it together and smote River Jordan. And Immediately the water parted. And they were all watching, surprised, as they saw the father and son crossing the river on dry ground. After they passed the river came together again. And they were all watching and they saw the two of them talking, and all of a sudden they saw, the wind blew and they saw the father disappear to heaven and only the son remained And they were all saying. “Ahh! We have seen strange things today. So that man was a great man of God! He could have helped us. Only if we had known!” But then they saw he picked up the mantle of his father, came back to Jordan, rolled the mantle again, smote the waters and the waters parted again. And the son passed through on dry ground. The men of Jericho said, “Thank God. The father is gone but the son remains.” And they said, this time we won’t waste time, we won’t miss this opportunity. Somebody is here today – all the opportunities you have missed will be restored. (Amen!)

So they rushed to Elisha: Sorry sir we know you are in sorrow. We know you are in sorrow. Your father has just left but we need help. We can’t wait. We don’t want you to go somewhere and then we’ll begin to look for you again! Will you please help us? And Elisha helped them. God will help somebody here tonight. (Amen!)

What happens when the wind is blowing? We have 21 of them listed. I pray that we will be able to cover all of them but wherever we stop God will take control.

Number One: Opportunities will be restored. In Joel 2:25 the Almighty God promised, He said, I will restore the years that the locust has eaten. And I don’t know who God is talking to tonight. I don’t want any of you, any of you with any ability to discern, you will know that tonight is different. If I were you I will be on my toes tonight. I said God said: I will restore the years that the locust had eaten. (Amen!) That means all the opportunities that you had lost shall be restored. How come that opportunities are restored when the wind is blowing? It is because the wind has a peculiar characteristic. If it likes in the morning it can blow from east to west and by afternoon it can begin to blow from the west to the east. By night time it can begin to blow from the north to the south. Jesus said in John 3:8, He said the wind blows wherever it listeth. Everything that you had lost the wind of the Holy Spirit will go and pick them up and bring them back to you. (Amen!)

Number 2 when the wind is blowing, restored opportunities are seized. You seize them. In other words, somehow, when the wind is blowing, some people just wake up and say, t his time round we are not going to miss our opportunities, In fact the Holy Spirit will do it in such a way that you yourself will see – I have to seize my opportunity now! In 2 Kings 6:1-7 we find the story of the sons of the prophet who went cutting down wood and the ax head fell into the river. The power of the Holy Spirit brought the iron back to the surface. It restored lost opportunity but then it did extra. The iron didn’t just come to the surface, it began to swim. The Bible said the ax head began to swim. The iron became like a fish until the one who needed it stretched forth his hand and picked it up. Wherever you may be today your opportunities will be restored to you and it will beckon to you and say grab me, grab me!

Number 3:when the wind is blowing, hidden problems are uncovered so that they can be solved. The men of the city came and said, Sir we have a problem and the problems are not on the surface – they are underneath. When the wind of the Holy Spirit is blowing the reason why you are having a problem will be brought to the surface. You may suddenly discover that the reasons why your prayers have not been answered are because of a particular sin in your life. In Mark 2:1-12 The Bible tells us that they brought a man to Jesus who was paralytic and when they brought him to Jesus, Jesus addressed the cause of the problem. He said, Son thy sins be forgiven thee. It is your sins that landed you where you are but now your sins are forgiven After that he could now say rise up, take your bed and go home. Whatever that is causing your problem may they be revealed today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

I’ve told you the story of a young man who had a problem of body odour. The doctors have tried everything. Instead of getting better it got worse. He came for prayers. I was going to pray for him when God said don’t! To cut a long story short we discovered why he was having the problem – that he ran away with the money of some people. God said, Let him go and restitute. He went. He restituted. I wanted to pray for him. God said don’t, Just tell him nor to drink ice water for some time and that was the end of his problem. God was fighting him with ice-water and doctors were treating all kinds of things. Until we know what is causing the problem, we can’t solve the problem. Whatever is causing your problem the Almighty God will reveal to you today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Some of us don’t know why we are not prospering. Millionaires are arising among us every day. We look at our right, we look at our left and say: Why is my own like this? Some of us have been praying for the fruit of the womb for years, With all others that were prayed for at the same time as ourselves. Why is my own like this? Some of us have seen people that we started with now several grades higher than us. Why is my own like this? God will answer that question tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Number 4, When the wind is blowing, the grace to open up to God in prayer, completely, to tell Him every detail, that grace comes on people. Many of us go to God with pretentious prayer, we pretend that all is well, we pray for what is not the real problem. 2 Kings 4:1-7 talks about a widow, she was in debt, yet whenever they see her – Oh how are you sister? Oh fine Alleluia! She was suffering and she was smiling until one day that the creditors came, they said, tomorrow, if you don’t pay our money we are selling your 2 sons. That day when the said Sister how are you? She said: All is not well. I have a problem. There are many of us who don’t even open up to god. The One who can help you you are hiding from Him.

I remember years ago. I was asked to come and pray for a brother. Brother what’s your problem? He said: Stomach pain. That’s no problem. I said: In the mighty Name of Jesus, stomach hear the word of God, be quiet! And we left. Ah-ah! Few days later he said. No improvement. I said it is not possible. I know my God. When I call on Him He answers. The brother instead of telling us that he has cancer of the testicles, he said he has stomach pains. The Yorubas have a saying, the one that will bury you when you die will you hide your nakedness from? Can you hide anything from God?

I remember one brother who said, Sir I have a problem in my place of work. What’s your problem? He said, My secretary. What’s wrong with her? She’s not hardworking? No, no, no, she’s very hard working. She’s rude. No, no, no most cheerful. What’s the problem? He said: I’m in love with her. Go ahead and marry her. Oh no sir, I am married. That man knew he had a problem and he confronted the problem – Sir what should I do. I said, simple. You love her and yet you don’t want your house destroyed. You will lovingly sack her. – lovingly. Give her 6 months salary in lieu of notice. Tell her to lovingly go away and look for somewhere else to work. Whatever is causing your problems will be gone today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) If you don’t want to let it go gently my Father will force it out of your hand in Jesus’ Name!

Number 5. When the wind is blowing and people come to God and they tell Him the whole truth there will be swift divine response. The moment these people came to Elisha and said: Sir this is our problem, he responded immediately. No wait till tomorrow. He answered them immediately. God is going to answer somebody today. Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek the LORD while he may be found, call on him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way … You have to make up your mind tonight that you will forsake your evil ways, and then God will have mercy.

James 4:8: If you draw near unto God then He will draw near unto you. Psalm 50:14 & 15 the Bible says pay your vows. It may be the cause of your problems. It maybe you made vows to God and you refuse to pay… it said pay your vows unto God then call on Him in the day of trouble and He will answer you. God will always respond fast when we call on Him in the day of trouble particularly when the wind is blowing..

Number 6. Whenever the wind is blowing God will always speak. Elisha said, and it wasn’t Elisha speaking it was the God of Elisha that was speaking. Brethren the wind is blowing, God is speaking. It is now up to you to listen. In Proverbs 4:20-22 God said: My son, attend to my words; incline your ear unto my sayings so that it can become health to your flesh. When God speaks are we listening? Many a times we hear God speaking but we thought it is a joke. Many of us are waiting for Him to come down so that we can see Him face to face and then we will hear what He is saying. If He comes down will you be able to wait? Some of us say: No we want to hear from Him directly. He’s willing to speak to you directly but many-a-time when He speaks directly you may think that it is thundering. But even before we talk of that one what about the Word of God that is already written down? Exodus 15:26 He said, If you will hearken diligently to the voice of the LORD your God, to observe and to do all that I command you this day He said I will bring none of the diseases that I have brought upon the Egyptians on you: for I am the LORD that healeth thee. If you will hearken diligently…. In Deuteronomy 28:1-2 It said: if you will hearken diligently to the voice of the LORD your God, to observe and to do all that I command you this day then blessings will come upon you and goodness will overtake you … Brethren, listen carefully God is speaking, are you listening? Are you listening? God will speak when the wind is blowing. You must listen to Him. Not just listen to Him. Not just listen – you must also obey. It is not enough to listen. You must obey! 1 Samuel 15:22: To obey is better than sacrifice. Isaiah 1:19 It is not only enough for you to be willing, you must also be obedient. Then you shall eat the good of the land. So when the wind is blowing, God will speak, and those who have ears to hear will hear. May you hear in Jesus’ Name!

Then number 7. When the wind is blowing, the grace to obey completely will come upon certain people because the people of Jericho when they heard what Elijah said, they responded completely. When we talk about obedience, complete obedience, I’m sure you understand that God says he does not have interest in anything that is half-hearted. Revelation 3:15-16 God said I wish that you are either hot or cold but that you are lukewarm, He said He will have nothing to do with you.

I am sure you know the story of Namaan in 2 Kings 5:1-14. When Namaan was told to go and dip himself seven times in River Jordan, if he had dipped himself six times he would have died a leper. Dip yourself – how many times? 7 He dipped himself seven times and he was made whole. 7 times. If he had done it 6 times he would have died a leper. May of us, the reason we are still suffering is that our obedience is incomplete. We claim to be children of God and yet we add a little bit to God. Some of us claim that we are born again and we still have some prophets here and there. It won’t work that way. If you are surrendering to God you must do it completely.

And then number 8 what was it that Elijah said? What was it that God said through Him? What is God likely to say when the wind is blowing? He said: Bring me a new cruse. What does that one mean? It means number one – be ready for a truly new life. This year can mark the turning point in your life – a real turning point. 2 Corinthians 5:17 has much more meaning than many of us believe. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature – a new creature – old things are passed away, behold – how many things become new? I have always said it, that if you are truly born again, based on this passage alone, there is no reason why your sickness should not go that same day. There is no reason why a curse placed on you should remain after that day. Oh no, I know some people will tell me, when you are born again it is your spirit that is born again … by the Word of God the Bible tells me old things have passed away, behold all things, all things have become new! There’s somebody here today, all things will become new. (Amen!) All things will become new.

Bring me a new cruse is also a test. It’s asking them to bring to God something new. What does that one mean? It means from now on you must put God first. The cruse you are going to bring to God is a cruse nobody has ever used before. Why must we put God first? Colossians 1:17-18. It says He’s before all things and therefore He must have pre-eminence. When we say put God first we are only asking you to do what is reasonable. Before your mountains were brought forth He was God. Before your great-grandfather was born He was God! How can you then say you want to put the One who was before the world Second? Everything about God must be first. If you just study the story of Jesus Christ you find that everything that has to do with Him was first, first, first. He was the first one to use the womb of Mary. When He was going to ride an ass He rode a brand new one. When they were going to bury His body they buried Him in a tomb that was brand new.

This tells us… it brings something important into the mind – the principle of the firstfruit. Proverbs 3:9-10 When it says you bring to God your first fruit, you will just discover that you will have more blessing than there’ll be room for it. It simply saying – God first. How many of you will put God first from now on? . . Let me hear you say Amen! (Amen!)

‘Bring me a new cruse’ means get ready for a new life. Two, put God first. Three, Be ready for a new beginning. Isaiah 43:18-19 God said Remember not the former things. He said Behold I will do a new thing. I don’t know who God is talking to today. But whatever had been happening in your past up to tonight God is saying forget them because He is going to do a new thing. I know some of you will say, Ahh! No, no, no, I can’t forget what has been happening…. beautiful things have been happening I can’t forget them. What you call God is nothing compared to what God is about to do. I know some of you are already swimming in rivers of blessing but are you going to compare a river to an ocean? Be ready for a new beginning. I am confident that beginning from this day somebody will sing a new song.

And then Elisha said, God said through Elisha: Put salt in it. Don’t bring me an empty new cruse. Put salt in it. Now we all know what salt is for. If you ask a little child he will tell you that salt is for sweetening food. That is why I pray for those of you who don’t eat salt. That curse in your life will be destroyed today. AMI Put salt in it. Put a sweetener in it. What is God saying? He’s saying be ready to become a blessing. Not just to be blessed but to be a blessing. If you are ready to be a blessing then you can be sure that several things will follow. Proverbs 11: 24-25 Thank You Father!

Several miracles are happening. We will come to them later on. There is a particular case I just thought I should mention. There’s a woman who came here tonight with threatened abortion. You were even bleeding on the way. You can check, the bleeding has stopped. (Amen!)

Proverbs 11:24-25 the Bible says there is someone who scattereth and yet increaseth. It went on to say the liberal souls shall be made fat and he that watereth shall be watered. How many of you will make up your minds that from tonight on a daily basis I will be a blessing to at least somebody? Let me see somebody like that. At least on person a day. I will be blessing to someone today. In that case you better get ready for blessing because he that waters shall be watered. Isaiah 55:10 says that God gives seed to the sower. Only those who will sow will receive seed. Let me tell you a little secret. Wealth is about to change hands. Many people who hold on to wealth now are going to loose them because you are not using it to bless anyone and the blessings will come into the hands of those who will use them to bless others. Into whose hands are those blessings coming? Let me hear you say Amen then (Amen!)

Put salt in it. What does salt do? Salt arrests corruption. If you have a meat that is already decayed with all kinds of maggots. How do you get rid of the maggots? The way they do it in my village is that they put salt in water and then they out the meat inside. Within five minutes all the maggots will be dead and by themselves they will swim out of the meat into the water. The Almighty God is saying to somebody every corruption in you life will be arrested this day and every corrupter, every thing that is devouring your life will be dealt with tonight. In Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

What again do we use salt for? We use salt to preserve whatever is good. If you catch a fish and you don’t have fridge. What do you do? In my village they will rub it with salt and once they rub it with salt they know the fish is preserved. What is God saying when He said Bring me salt? He is saying that every good thing in your life from now in will be preserved. (Amen!)

How many people don’t know this but salt is also used as a fertilizer and what does fertilizer do? It makes sure that the plant will grow fine. For somebody here tonight your progress is going to be accelerated. (Amen!)

What else do we do with salt? We use salt to keep flies away. Surround something with salt, you can be sure flies will stay away. What is that one saying? I believe God is saying that there is someone here today – demons will leave you alone. Because flies is another word for demons.

And then number 10, after Elijah spoke and said bring me a new cruse, put salt therein, the Bible said and they brought it to him. I believe there’s a big lesson God wants us to learn. Number one is that nothing goes for nothing. Ohhh! Many of us think that salvation is free. It is free because somebody paid for it. 1 Peter 1:18-19 the Bible says you are not redeemed with silver or gold but with the precious blood of Jesus. Oh salvation is free to you but Jesus paid for your salvation with His blood.

They brought it to him. They brought the new cruse, they brought the salt. Nothing goes for nothing. Not only that, blessings don’t come from an empty stomach. There are many people w ho will say Pastor bless me! What have you done to deserve blessing? Genesis 27:1-4 Isaac said to Esau go and bring me meat, let me eat, let me enjoy myself and then I will bless you. ‘Daddy bless me.’ Sure, its no problem, you want me to bless you but it will be an empty blessing. Why? Because the Bible says a curse causeless shall not come. Which means a blessing causeless shall not come. Simple. That’s the way of the Lord. That’s the way of the Lord. If these people said, we want our curse broken. The man of God said, Bring a sweetener. It was what they brought to him that he used. It was what they brought to him. It was the five loaves and two fishes that that boy gave to Jesus that He multiplied, that He fed five thousand from. It was from that five loaves and two fishes that the boy got twelve baskets extra to take home.

We need to note certain things because I know God is really talking to somebody tonight. I know for somebody this is going to be the beginning of months. What these people brought to Elisha was acceptable. Why? Bring me a new cruse. They brought a new cruse. Put salt therein. They brought salt that has not lost its savour. We need to know brethren not all offerings are acceptable to God. Genesis 4:3-7 tells us clearly that two brothers brought offerings to God. He accepted one, He rejected the other. May the Almighty God accept your offerings in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Deuteronomy 15:21 said that certain offerings are an insult to God. Some people brought lame animals they want to offer it to God. Blind animals. Ooh, you say, I will never do that! I’ve seen that again and again here. Oh.. I have seen people who when they have used their car and it can no longer move, they say they come and give it to God. I have seen people give offerings with currency that they know they won’t accept even in petrol stations. Not all offerings are acceptable to God. Some people insult God with their offerings. There’s a young man Oh I want to give a special offering to God. Pastor wait for me I want to go and bring a very special offering to God. He’s a multi-millionaire and he came with a beautiful envelope Pastor, Sorry for keeping you waiting. This is my special offering. How much? 1000 naira. Do you think God is hungry? You think He’s a beggar? The Almighty God knows how much you have. He knows what you are worth. He knows your value so when you are taking out your offering to give to Him. Many-a-time before you put it down He has already rejected it because He looks at you and says, Who are you insulting? What these people brought, what they brought is what turned the tide of their lives it’s what caused the wind to change direction. Today the wind is going to change direction for somebody. (Amen!)

The first preacher used some very big words. I used to speak that kind of language before, when I was younger but now I know that there are some market women listening to me. The Almighty God can pick you from the gutter and put you on the mountain top. All it takes is for the wind to change direction. The Word of God makes it clear that God can change nobody to somebody. Believe me honestly, He can also change somebody to nobody, all it takes is for the wind to change direction. You all know the story of the widow of Zarapheth. The wind blew in her direction. Her last meal became her first. Death came to her house and death was chased out because she offered unto God something that was acceptable to him.

Number 11, Elisha acted. He didn’t just talk He also did certain things. May the Almighty God act on your behalf today. (Amen!) But we need to understand certain things here. Bring me a new cruse. Fill it with salt. And they brought it and they handed it over to Elisha. From that moment onwards the ball was in the court of Elisha. There are certain things that only God can do. He’s the only One who can answer prayers. Do I hear ‘Amen!’ to that? (Amen!) He’s the only One who can heal. (Amen!) He’s the only One who can deliver! (Amen!) And believe me honestly, He’s the Only One who can produce children. (Amen!) But He can use His anointed.

When you read Exodus 17:8-13 And you read the story of the Amalekites coming to fight against the children of Israel, and Moses stood on the mountain top and he lifted up his hands. When he lifted up his hands the children of Israel would prevail. When his hands went down the Amalekites prevailed. You know what Aaron and Hur did? Somehow God gave them intelligence. They could have said to Moses: There are three of us here, You have tried, sit down, Aaron it’s your turn. Raise your hand. What would have happened? The battle would have been lost. Or we could say: No. No, Two are better than one. Sit down! You’ve tried. Aaron, Hur, four hands up! The battle would have been lost. There are certain hands that the Almighty God has set aside for Himself. Not because the people with those hands are extra special but God works in mysterious ways. Anyone who is wise will just find out – where are those hands so that those hands can wave at me and make the wind to blow in my direction?

I was telling my children in Akure last Sunday or so. Was it Saturday or Friday? I was reminding them of an incident that happened some years ago. There was one witchdoctor they call him Dr. JJ He lived under one Iroko tree. Soldiers, policemen, big men they go to him for consultation. He kidnapped children, used them for charms. Nobody could touch him Not only because he was deep in juju but because he had big men behind him. But unfortunately for him, one of my children had a factory directly opposite his shrine. So he said: Daddy please come and help me. This man is my neighbour and from time to time we see headless children. Is that the shrine? He said Yes. I lifted my hand: Okay bye bye Dr, JJ in Jesus’ Name! And my son said. Is that all? I said, That’s all.

I can’t remember how many days after. Something happened. I think thunder fell and then first of all cut down the tree. To cut a long story short because we don’t have much time – within a few days there was no more Dr. JJ (Amen!) I want to say tonight, all of you that are true children of the Almighty God here, even as I wave my hand, every plant that my Father did not plant in your lives, in your homes, in your churches shall be uprooted in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

They handed the cruse and the salt to Elisha and they left the rest to him. When it is time to pray tonight and you pray, leave the rest in God’s hands, Once you cast your burden upon Him. Leave it to Him. I am confident that God is going to surprise somebody here tonight. If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Number 12. Elisha went to the spring of the water. He located where the problem started. You need to locate where your problem started. When did quarrel start between your husband and yourself? The one who used to say: Dahlin, dahlin; honey, honey … when is it suddenly that you now become bitterleaf? Is there somebody who came to live with you – a house boy, a house girl? You need to locate where the problem started. When is it that you who used to pray 6 hours in a stretch, you can no longer pray 30 minutes? Locate where your problem started because you will need to tell Jesus tonight. When Jesus came to raise Lazarus from the dead He first asked them: Where have you laid him? What is the source of your problem?

Number 13. When Elisha got to the source that is where he applied the salt. The Bible said in Psalm 11:3 If the foundation be destroyed what will the righteous do? Go to the source! Cry to God tonight! This is where my problem started – put your salt there. Put your sweetener there!

Number 14: After Elisha acted. After he applied salt he prophesied. He said, Thus saith the Lord…. Whenever the wind is blowing, whenever the Holy Spirit is moving like thank God He is doing tonight, God will always speak and when God speaks immediately something will happen. Whenever the wind is blowing prophecies are fulfilled – fast. God said: Let there be light and there was light! God said to Ezekiel: Prophesy to the dry bones and they shall live. He prophesied and they live! Immediately! Not 6 months later. Don’t toy with the prophecies of this year. Don’t wait till June before you expect them to be fulfilled! In fact I am expecting that long, long before March many of us will have testimonies. (Amen!) I am prophesying to you in the Name of Jesus. This month you will have testimonies. (Amen!) I’ve told my children that I’ve visited, made some whirlwind tour this year … visited Calabar, visited Uyo, Umahia, Aba, Enugu, Benin, Owo, Akure, Ibadan and in all the places I told them, I have not come to preach. I have come to prophesy and I am prophesying to those of you who are here: This month you will have testimonies. (Amen!)

1 Samuel 3:19 assures us that God will not allow the word of his prophets to fall to the ground. What does that mean? It means when His prophet speaks before the saliva from his mouth can reach the ground what he had said will come to pass – that is why I know it is going to be well with somebody here tonight. (Amen!) He prophesied.

Number 15: The first thing in his prophecy is that “waters you are healed!” What does that one mean? Healed waters means, healed land. I would love to believe God that God is going to heal Nigeria this year. (Amen!) Very few of you said Amen to that one! Well if you can’t say Amen to that… (Amen!) I need to let you know that a healthy Nigeria is going to be of blessing to all of us. Healed waters means, healed land. Healed waters means, healed people. I am not a doctor but the little I know is that more than 50% of your body is water. Oh they may look like flesh and other things but you yourself know what happens when somebody dies. If you allow him to rot. What will be remaining? Only the bones. What happens to the flesh? It becomes water and flows away. He sent His word and healed them. Tonight the Word of God is going out into all the waters in your body and He is saying waters, you are healed. (Amen!) Blood you are healed (Amen!) Flesh you are healed (Amen!) Healed waters mean healed life, healed people, healed economy!

Isaiah 40:4-7 tells you what can happen when the wind of God is blowing. How wealth will just begin to flow in and He said to somebody: Keep your door open because the blessings are coming. (Amen!) I can say ‘Amen!’ to that one because I need that one.

And then another thing He said, which is Number 16 now. He says: No more death. At least in my own family! No more death! No more death! No more death! ‘No more death!’ what does that mean. At least anybody can say that means no more sorrow. You don’t have to be a Bible scholar to know that one. Isaiah 35:10 It says: sorrows and sighs shall flee away. (Amen!) Isaiah 35:10 It said the ransomed of the Lord shall return and they will come to Zion with singing. It said sorrows and sighing shall flee away.

Thank You Father! I told you all kinds of miracles are happening but there are some I think I just need to stop and mention one or two. There’s a man who has lost his manhood for years now. God said you are now fully restored. And the Lord also said there’s a woman whose menses has stopped prematurely. The Lord said He’s bringing it back today too. (Amen!)

No more death means no more sorrow, and no more sorrow means joy is restored. You know I know for somebody joy is coming. Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. I am confident that by the time the sun rises tomorrow somebody will be shouting for joy. (Amen!) And you know the implications of joy cometh can be many. Number one it may be that somebody who thought he or she could never marry may suddenly become married. It could be that somebody who thought that she could never have a child may suddenly become the mother of twins. (Amen!) It could be that somebody who thought he was going to die a tenant may suddenly become a landlord. (Amen!) Somebody is picking it up. I know God knows who He is talking to. No more death also means no more miscarriages. And when we talk about miscarriages we are not just talking about the fruit of the womb alone. It means that no project that somebody will start will be aborted. (Amen!) Zechariah 4:8 & 9, it said it is the hand that started the foundations that will finish the house. (Amen!) I’m sure God must be talking to me here. No more death also means no still birth. And no still birth means there is no more failure waiting for you at the end of the road. (Amen!) No more death also means no more infant mortality which means no joy belonging to somebody here will be truncated. (Amen!) In other words it means that no contract that you are interested in that will be cancelled. (Amen!) It also means that no examination results will be cancelled for some….. (Amen!)

Ahh! Thank You Father! Thank You Father! You know Daddy said that there’s somebody who just said ‘Amen!” (Amen!) That fellow has said it before I started speaking. God said this particular fellow has a history of academic failures. The Lord asked me to tell you, whoever you are that you will never fail another exam. (Amen!)

Thank You Daddy! The Lord says there’s someone here, the hair of your head has been falling off. Daddy asked me to tell you that just as a matter of grace He has decided that all that have fallen off will row back again. (Amen!)

Now the Lord said there’s someone here for example, fairly young fellow, and that your hair has suddenly gone grey. The Lord said that by tomorrow morning check from your mirror you‘ll find that everything’s black. (Amen!)

Okay because … Oh God… I’m out of time… Anyway He said, no more barrenness, no more death… no more death, no more barrenness. No more barrenness automatically means that the barren shall be fruitful but it also means that there’ll be no more fruitless efforts…(Amen!) which brings us to

Number 18. Everything that Elisha prophesied can be summed up as ‘curse cancelled’. And I believe that the Almighty God is saying that for somebody here today every curse on you had been cancelled. (Amen!)

Which brings me to number 19 … I’m hurrying a bit so that we could… curse cancelled also means blessings commanded. I believe that the Almighty God is going to command His blessings on somebody here tonight. (Amen!)

Alleluia! The Lord said there is somebody here, when people hear about your wedding they are going to sing “How great is our God! How great is His name! …” That’s all right. Glory be to God!

The Lord said there is someone here, Thank You Father! your contract had been cancelled, Daddy asked me to tell you, they will call you back and give you back the contract (Amen!) at a higher rate (Amen!) and He asked me to tell you that the extra that they are going to put on this contract is going to be shared between Him and you 50-50.

Ah Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s someone here, the enemies of your mother took your afterbirth and instead of burying it, they burnt it. The Lord asked me to tell you that those who did it, they did it so that you will always have problems. Daddy asked me to tell you, you had suffered enough, He’s putting an end to your suffering and those who did this to you, their children will smell pepper! (Amen!)

. That brings us to point number 20: So the waters were healed. Once God speaks it is settled. Psalm 33:8 & 9 it said, let the whole earth fear before him because he spake and it was done. Every prophecy of God concerning you will be fulfilled tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Because not only will God speak and it is done. He has arranged that some people will decree a thing and it will be established unto them and I decree tonight from the lives of every one of you sorrow shall flee away. (Amen!)

That brings me to point number 21: Unto this day. The waters were healed unto this day. That means the blessing that Elisha pronounced that day remained permanent. Isaac said to Esau, I have blessed Jacob and he shall be blessed. I have blessed you tonight and you shall be blessed. (Amen!) Balaam said: I have blessed! I can’t reverse it. I have blessed you tonight. I don’t even want to reverse it. You shall be blessed. (Amen!)

And one thing you will notice about this whole story. I‘ve not finished but I will just stop for a while – is that Jericho was never cursed again. As many of you as will make up your mind tonight that from now on you will put God first, you will listen to His word, you will obey Him, you will obey Him completely – you will never be cursed again. (Amen!)

You know there is a statement in Matthew 12:33 it said, make a tree good and its roots shall be good. I believe that Almighty God is going to make some tree good here tonight. (Amen!) That is why I want to give an invitation. If you are here and you are not yet born again. You must do so tonight. If you are here and you claim that you are already born again but there was no change in your life and you are not a brand new creature like God promised you must come forward tonight. When you come forward tonight your cry to God is Father, make my tree good and I know my fruit will be good. I want to become absolutely brand new creature. I want to begin to serve you like a true child of God. I want to say bye-bye to sin. I want to do the will of God from now on.

If you are one of such people I will count up to ten and I will count fast because we are running out of time. After that I am going to pray for the salvation of those who want to come. So if you know you want to come, you better begin to come now. 1.. 2… 3… 4 … 5 … 6 … 7. Now as you come begin to pray. Don’t wait for the others. Those of us who are sure of our salvation, let us intercede for these people – that God will save their souls, that He will have mercy on them; that He will make their tree good so that the fruit may become good – let’s pray for them, let’s intercede on their behalf. I want to thank You for Your word, thank You for the hearts of your people thaw were prepared, because Your word says that no man can come unto me except my Father draws him. Thank You for drawing these people. (Amen!) And thank You that they have not refused Your drawing. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) They have come to You now. Receive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Forgive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) As You save their souls today writhe their names in the book of Life in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Beginning from today, in all their lives, let old things pass away. (Amen!) Let everything become new. (Amen!) Thank You my Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight and I want to make you a promise. From tonight I’ll be praying fore you, and God normally answers my prayers. So you are going to follow the Counsellors. All they are going to do is just get your names, your addresses and your principal prayer requests. They will compile the list and give it to me. I advise you put the correct address because when I ask God to send your miracles it will be sent to the address you put there. Congratulations. You’ll see somebody there to my left. You’ll see another one to my right. Follow either of them. Some Pastors are waiting for you. Oh there’s another one over there. Whichever of the three that is closest. We’ll wait for you. You will be back in about five to ten minutes. You can go rejoicing.

While we wait for our new brothers and sisters we want to do two things together. Number one those of you who have testimonies to give you can go to the back of the altar now. You will meet Pastors there who will listen to your testimonies. Remember when the wind is blowing some people give testimonies, some people listen to testimonies. Some people are spectators but some people are the people that the miracles happen to and they always testify. And when you testify what God has done He has a way of doing more. A woman touched the hem of His garment and was healed. When Jesus asked who touched me? And she came forward to testify Jesus said, They faith has made thee whole. Not that you are just healed now – you are now whole! He now pronounced her blessing of wholeness. Don’t hide your testimony. You have a testimony go tot he back f the altar, there are people who will listen to you there.

Number two while that is going on I want us to pray one very important prayer. Many of us, almost all of us have lost some very important opportunities in life. We need to call on God and say, this year of Jubilee, this Year of restoration, every opportunity I have lost from childhood till now – restore. Pray quietly so those who are listening to testimony will be able to hear.. Let’s talk to God now.

The prayers we want to pray tonight. If you like pray like ladies and gentlemen. If you like pray as if your life depends on it because I believe it does. I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, put your salt into my life! Open your mouth and pray! Father! Your own salt, my Lord and my Saviour, Your divine salt, please put it into my life! …

Please open your mouth and pray. say Father! Put a permanent ban on sorrow in my life! …. Open your mouth!….

Father, put an end to fruitless efforts in my life! Let’s call on the Almighty

In Jesus’ mighty Name we pray! (Amen!)

One way or the other there must be somebody close to you trusting God for the fruit of the womb. Together now we are going to cry to God and say, Father! (Father!) Put joy into the life of the barren. Let’s call on the Almighty God!

Similarly you must know somebody precious to you who is of marriageable age and yet there is nothing like that. We are going to cry to God tonight. Say, Father! (Father!) This year, let the wedding bells ring.

You are going to call on the Almighty God for yourself. Say, Father! (Father!) Every form of deterioration in my life, arrest tonight! Let’s call on the Almighty God … every form of deterioration in my life Lord God Almighty arrest tonight!

And now you will call on Him and say, Father! (Father!) Loud and clear! Father! (Father!) Every plant you did not plant, in my body, in my life, in my home, in your church, in this nation – uproot! Let’s call on the Almighty. Every plant you did not plant, Father, in my body souls, spirit, home, in my family in your church, in this nation – every plant you did not plant….

One way or the other our families have incurred curses and that curse has been flowing down like a river affecting all of us. We’ll call on the Almighty God. Father! (Father!) Heal my family at the source! Let’s call on the Almighty God

In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

You are going to call on the Almighty God and say, Father! (Father!) Make me a blessing to my generation! … Make me a blessing Lord to my generation In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The next prayer point is pray if you like. Father! (Father!) Command Your blessings on my life! Let’s call on the Almighty God! Father! O Father! … Thank You Lord! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The next prayer is similar. When Bartemeus heard that Jesus was passing by and he cried and cried until Jesus sent for him. The first thing he did was to throw away his garment because he knew that very soon he would get a new one. I want you to call on the Almighty God. Say, Father! (Father!) The garment of suffering, remove from me and give me a garment of praise. Let’s call on the Almighty God!

Without any doubt the presence of God has been very spectacular here tonight (Amen!) and therefore I want you to seize this opportunity to pour out your heart to God. All those things you had always wanted Him to do for you call on Him now … just tell Him, tell Him what you want, tell Him what you want! In Jesus’ mighty Name we pray! (Amen!)

We are believing God for fifty million souls this year. Let’s call on the Almighty. Wherever these souls are He should please bring them in. Let’s call on Him!

You have prayed for yourself, now pray for your neighbour, that every miracle the fellow you are holding needs, the Almighty God will give him or her now. Let’s call on the Almighty! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

So Father, I just want to thank You because I know You are always there to answer prayers. We have called on you and we know You will answer us. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Father, I have only one additional request that is that for all these Your children here and the families they represent, this very month, give them a sign of joy! (Amen!) A sign of joy! (Amen!) A sign of victory! (Amen!) A sign of triumph! (Amen!) A sign of success! (Amen!) A sign of promotion! (Amen!) A sign of miracles, signs and wonders! (Amen!) Give them a sign of joy! (Amen!) Answer all their prayers Father, (Amen!) let their joy be full. (Amen!) Let sorrow be forgotten in their lives. (Amen!) Heal their families from source. (Amen!) Every plant You did not plant in their lives, uproot tonight! (Amen!) Let it be well with them! (Amen!) Father! Let it be well with them! (Amen!) My Father, let it be well with them! (Amen!) Let it be well with Nigeria! (Amen!) Let it be well with Your church! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Do something new in my life, something new in my life today…..

Now its time for ministration – those who will want hands laid on them, this is the time it will be done. Brethren it can begin to affect your life from now. It is this law again called the Law of Harvest – Elisha threw in salt and sweetness came out. What goes in is what comes out. That’s the Law of Harvest. What you sow is what you reap. But it is not just sweetness that came out. Death was banished. Barrenness was forbidden. Curse was broken. Blessings pronounced. Again this tells you of the Law of Harvest – that the harvest is always more than the seed sown. According to Hosea 8:7, that if you sow wind, you reap the whirlwind. I’ve been studying this Law of Harvest more closely now that I discovered how important it is. From the moment I discovered that this Law is so important even the Almighty God submitted Himself to it. That He gave His only begotten Son so that He could have many children. He planted the only begotten Son so that He could become the first born of many brethren.

I discover more and more that this law called the Law of Harvest is a law we need to look at more closely and I discover that you can practically control your future with this law. Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 says in essence that what you sow today will be waiting for you in the future. It said, cast your bread upon the waters and you will find it after many days. It just occurred to me that I should share this with you tonight, that if we are really determined, we can become the controller of the wealth of this nation if we just make up pour mind that we will sow aggressively, that we will sow consistently, we will sow as if something is wrong with us.

God reminded me of an instance in my life. We were doing the first extension to the first auditorium over there and I was in a desperate need of 17,000 naira when naira was naira. And I had only one thousand. Convention was near. I must finish the extension. There was no money anywhere and one of our pastors was building a dormitory for his congregation which will come to the Convention. He ran out of money he needed one thousand which was a lot of money at that time so he came to me. Daddy, help me, I need 1,000 naira. I said if you don’t get out of my sight.. If you don’t get out of my sight… don’t let me lose my sanctification! I need 17,000 you need only one, you are coming to trouble me again! Of course he turned and began to run. And I heard God speak to me: Give him the 1,000. If I didn’t know His voice I would have said. Get thee behind me Satan. How can I release the only one I have out of the 17 I am looking for? But I knew who was speaking to me so I said: Yes Lord. I called him back I gave him the one thousand and you could see the way he was galloping away with joy. I was happy with him but I was trembling inside. Recently God reminded me of this story that happened in 1985. He said, I asked you to sow then so that you can reap. Within hours the 17,000 I was looking for came all the way from Port Harcourt!

I just want you to pray that the Holy Spirit will explain the Law of Harvest to you. I’m confident that within the next 2 years poverty can become a total stranger to you. (Amen!)

How many of you have been blessed tonight? Specially blessed? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Very soon we will give our thanksgiving offering to the Lord…. Let’s get ready to give our thanksgiving offering to the Lord. The band has done very well tonight. Will somebody give them a big round of applause…?

It is in Your Name that I command Your blessings upon them. Everyone who had given this morning, I hereby decree that very, very soon poverty will become a stranger to you, (Amen!) that if you owe anybody that supernaturally God will pay. (Amen!) If you don’t owe you will never owe. (Amen!) Beginning from today, in a way even you do not understand all your needs will be met (Amen!) And you will always have surplus. (Amen!) So shall it be. (Amen!) In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Alleluia!

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

DEVINE INVOLVEMENT

1st of March, 2002

Thank You Jesus! Thank You Lord! Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Thank You Lord! Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) When the money is small they call it chicken feed. When the blessing is small I think we can call it chicken feed. I know there is somebody here today who is not here for chicken feed. (Amen!) Somebody is here today who is going to say forget the chicken. If you are the one let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Normally in March we have Special Holy Ghost Service, I say in March we have the Special Holy Ghost Service but the one of this year is going to be an extra special Holy Ghost Service. (Amen!) It is the kind of Holy Ghost Service that you see probably once in ten years. That’s why I know that tonight somebody’s going to receive a blessing that he will still be talking about for the next ten years. (Amen!) If you are that one let me hear you shout another Alleluia! (Alleluia!) I will tell you the truth. Even I don’t know all that God wants to do this weekend although we’ve been talking about it for more than 30 days. One thing I know is this – this is one Holy Ghost Service the kind we have never seen before. (Amen!) Now great as the blessings will be, somebody is going to get the greatest. Now let that fellow now shout the biggest Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Thank You Father! Thank You!

Well we have to start somehow. Let’s go on our knees before God and just worship the One who can do all things. Holy, holy, holy…. You are high and lifted up, there is no one like You ….. Jehovah, You are the most high …..…. Let’s go ahead and worship the Almighty God. Let’s worship the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, let’s bless His holy Name! Let’s worship Him! He’s worthy to be praised! He’s worthy to be adored! He’s worthy to be magnified …… There’s no one like Him! Praise Him! He’s worthy! He’s worthy! He’s worthy! He’s worthy to be magnified! Blessed be the Name of the Lord for ever more ….. Thank You Jesus! O Alleluia! Thank You Jesus! Thank You! Alleluia! Glory be to God! Thank You! In Jesus mighty Name we worship. (Amen!) Thank You Father!

The Lord said there’s somebody here, , He simply said I should tell you – I will hunt the hunter that is hunting for your soul. (Amen!) Alleluia!

Daddy says there is someone here, He says, while you are here, I’m going to pay a visit to your family. (Amen!) And that before you get home the biggest mountain in that family would have been moved. (Amen!)Thank You Lord!

The Lord said there’s somebody here, very soon, when they ask you “why are you always happy?” you will answer them and say I used to weep sore but the Lord turned the tide. (Amen!) Thank You Jesus! Thank You!

The Lord said there’s somebody here who says the only thing I don’t like about this meeting is that they shout too much. The Lord says I should tell you that very soon, I will give you something to shout about. (Amen!)

My Father and my God! we want to bless Your Holy Name. We want to worship You. We want to adore You. There is no one like You. You are the King of Kings. You are the Lord of Lords. You are the I AM that I AM. You are the Ancient of Days. You are the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. You are the Alpha, You are the Omega. You are the Beginning, You are the Ending, You are the One who is, You are the One who is to come. You are the Almighty. Your Name is Wonderful. Your Name is Counsellor. Your Name is Mighty God. You are the Everlasting Father. You are the Prince of Peace. Glory be to Your Holy Name! (Amen!) Accept our worship in Jesus’ Name (Amen!). We are here again. It is unto You that we are gathering. You are the only one who can solve our problems. Whatever problems we may have, Your power is more than sufficient. (Amen!) For us individually, for us as family, for us as a nation and for us as a church, Your power is more than sufficient. Tonight, prove Your power (Amen!) Show Your Almightiness. (Amen!) Show Your love! (Amen!) Show Your goodness! (Amen!) Our Father and Our God, before tomorrow morning, let our joy already begin to overflow. Thank You Daddy! Glory be to Your Name! Thank You!

The Lord said there’s somebody here, He said you are confused, you are tired of everything. Daddy asked me to tell you – relax, all will be well. (Amen!) Thank You Father!

Daddy says there’s someone here you want to dance, you want to jump up and down and dance but your heart is weak. The doctors told you, you must do everything gently. Daddy asked me to tell you, He has replaced your heart. (Amen!)

Father, I want to bless Your Name. I know You are going to do marvellous things tonight. Thank You for starting with us. Thank You because I know You will continue with us. Glory be to Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

I want you to shake hands with one or two people and tell them, “Welcome to miracles.” Say it as if you mean it. I want to thank God for all the choir that had ministered tonight. You did very well. God will bless you all.

I notice that some of us didn’t get the full impact of that testimony that the brother shared. When robbers come to your house. They don’t come to take something and then give it back to you. When they left home, they too must have prayed to their gods that they should let them get plenty to carry home. For robbers to take your loads and then return the same to you is a miracle of God. And that they did that not because you said because I have guns waiting outside to kill you but because you said you are a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. I thought it is something to shout about. I’ve heard several testimonies from very reliable people that show me that the Almighty God is truly on our side and I know He will continue to be on our side. (Amen!) So tell your neighbour “God is on my side.”

I mean I heard of a family that the people there were kidnapped – they were going to church and they entered into a danfo not knowing that all the people in the danfo are armed robbers, taking everything they had and they were driving them away. Then the head of the family said, “But we are going to church!” They said, “Which church?” They said, “Redeemed Christian Church of God” “Which church?” “Redeemed Christian Church of God´. The leader said, “You are not the ones we want to kidnap!” Oh, one day we will bring the people to come and tell you themselves. I’ve heard of a testimony – they snatched a car and they were driving it away, holding the owner captive, and they were driving along this way. When they got to the Camp, they saw the owner of the driver looking in this direction. They said, “Why are you looking in that direction?” “Ah!” he said, “That’s our camp ground!” “Are you sure?” “Oh, yes.” “Are you a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God” “Oh, yes!” They said, “Stop the car and give him his keys!” Tell your neighbour “God is on my side!”

Let’s start by reading 2Kings 2:9-15:

Thank You Jesus! The Lord said there’s somebody here, in your dream your husband boarded a vehicle and waved bye bye and you woke up and you don’t know the meaning of the dream. The Lord asked me to tell you, the journey to death that your husband has undertaken has been reversed. (Amen!)

2 Kings 2:9-15:

9 And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.

10 And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.

11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.

13 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan;

14 And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the LORD God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.

15 And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.

Now turn to Isaiah 61 from verse 1-7:

1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, (Amen!) and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. (Amen!)

7 For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.

He didn’t say double portion of anointing, He didn’t say double portion of power, He didn’t say double portion of spirit, He just saiddouble portion and kept quiet. Which means you begin to ask yourself, “double portion of what?” Well we will find out before we finish.

The first thing you need to note is that we are serving a God who is more than enough. Genesis 17:1 calls His Name Jehovah El Shaddai, in other words He is a God who is more than sufficient. When you go to the Scriptures you will find that those who went to God for something and He responded to their request, He always gave them more than they asked for In 2 Kings 4:1-7 a widow went to God in prayer. All she was asking for was that her debt be paid. But when God responded, not only was her debt paid, for the rest of her life she never lacked. And I believe God is talking to somebody in that one.. When you read John 2:1-11

Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s somebody here, who is very anxious, that whatever it is that is causing you anxiety will soon lead you to shouts of joy! (Amen!) Thank You Father!

In John 2:1-11 when the mother of Jesus came to Jesus and said, they don’t have more wine all she was asking for was just enough wine to keep these people going till the following day. When God responded He gave them 600 litres of purest wine. In other words, maybe all you are asking God to do tonight is wipe away your tears. I’m telling you He will do much more than that.

When you read 1 Samuel 2: 5 you will see there that when the barren goes to the Lord in prayer, asking for a child and the Almighty God responded, instead of one child He gave her seven and I know there is somebody here today, trusting God for the fruit of the womb. Get ready for a double portion of babies.

When you read 1 Kings 17 ….

Thank You Father! There is so much healing going on it is difficult to know which one to tell you. Thank You Father! Alleluia! For example the Lord said there is somebody with a twisted mouth. He says He’s straightening it now. There is somebody with a goiter. The Lord says the goiter is melting right now. There is somebody whose collarbone was dislocated. The Lord says He’s putting it back into position. (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Don’t take these miracles for granted.

Before I continue, let me help you, you see because we are here for double portion and if you study the fellow who got the double portion, Elisha, we’ve got a lot to learn from Him. We might not be able to get into details……. It is the winning side that is the shouting side. So let the winners shout, let the winners shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Let the winners shout! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Alleluia! Thank You! Thank You! You remember very well. Thank You! Let me tell you one thing. O Lord! …Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Father! Alleluia! O Alleluia! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Thank You! Yes, I was just going to say, you see when the children of Israel got to Jericho, if they had not shouted that day, that would have been the end of their journey., They would never had reached their promised land. I want you to just do me a favour, every one of us, big and small, like you have never done before, just lift up your voice unto God and shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! O Thank You Jesus! …. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Amen! Amen! Please remain standing for just a moment. Remain standing for just a moment. You know this is not usual with me. This is not a usual night. I’m going to obey God completely and He is going to do what He alone can do. Thank You! Now just hold on. If you know your Bible, the Bible says, there was a time when Israel was at battle with the Philistines and then they brought the Ark of the Covenant into the camp of the children of Israel and then the children of Israel shouted and the ground trembled and when it happened the Philistines said, “what’s the meaning of this?” and somebody said, “God has come to camp.” Let me hear you shout one more time!

Now listen to me please. My Daddy says I should tell you. Now that you have prepared the ground for me to operate, I will surprise every one of you. Let’s put our hands together for the Almighty …… Thank You Jesus! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! God bless you! You may be seated. Thank You! Alleluia!

Now I will rush over specifics because you need to hear one or two things before I get out of the way completely. The widow in 1 Kings 17:8-16 had only one meal left. She would have been grateful to God if God said, “well you have given me one meal. I will give you a hundred meals.” But God did more than that. Morning and evening God was feeding her because the God we’re talking about is a God who is more than enough. When God came to Peter’s boat to preach and He told Peter to throw his net to the right, Peter would have been very grateful if what he caught filled just one boat but no, that’s not the way God operates. He had to fill 2 boats and the 2 boats had to begin to sink because He is the God who is more than enough! Tell your neighbour: He is more than enough to do my own.

Now a single portion from Him – let us see what a single portion from God looks like before you begin to talk of a double portion. Abraham, David, Elijah, they got a single portion and when you look at a single portion of wealth given to Abraham in Genesis 24:34-35the single portion of wealth given to Abraham included silver, gold, menservants, maidservants, camels and whatever you can think about. If you want to see what a single portion of wealth is in the hand of David, if you read 1 Chronicles 22:14-16 you will see that the offering he gave towards the building of the church, towards the building of the temple, included 100,000 talents of gold! And 1 million talents of silver! Bible scholars tell me that the value of that money today is much more than all the money that the richest man in the world has today and that was single portion. When David got a single portion of anointing, it was enough to kill a lion. It was enough to kill a bear, it was enough to kill a bear. Elijah with his single portion of anointing was able to raise the dead, he was able to call fire down from heaven anytime he wanted – single portion only. And yet what God has for us this weekend is not single portion at all – it is double portion. If you are ready for double portion shout “Amen!”

Thank You Father! I had a testimony on Monday here that the Lord said I should tell now. Our preacher on Monday gave us that testimony, he said there was a sister – married and barren. After several years she went to see a medical doctor. The doctor said, “Sister, after examination. Let me tell you our situation. Your womb is like the balloon of a little baby, put near the fire and has melted, there is no way, no way, no way you can ever have a child and she came here and today she already has 2 babies. (Amen!) Now God, the Lord asked me to tell you that particular testimony now because He says there’s someone here, they’ve told you you will never have a child. Before the end of this year you are going to have a set of twins.

Now when it now comes to double portion from God, let’s look a little bit about the double portion that some people got from God. Somebody like Isaac, he got a double portion of the blessing of Abraham. If you read Genesis 22:15-18 God said, Abraham I will bless you, Isaac, I will multiply you. Somebody is going to be multiplied here tonight! (Amen!) When you see the result of that double portion on Isaac, by the time you get to Genesis 26, the Bible tells us that Isaac had stores of servants. You now people usually store food but Isaac stored servants. Some of us don’t even know the meaning of prosperity. God was talking to me about that some nights ago and He said there is a group of people here tonight that will begin now to know the full meaning of the word prosperity. (Amen!)Servants, so many, that the Bible said he stored … Solomon got a double portion of the wealth of David. The Bible said in his days, silver was treated as ordinary stones. Many of us don’t know the meaning of silver because some of us have never seen it. I will bring it home to us in a language you will understand. Can you imagine somebody who is so rich who will say to his servants, any time they want to bring his money to him, and he will say to them – N500 notes, you can bring those ones in. Anything less than that I don’t want to see it. How many of us want that kind of prosperity? Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Of course in the case of Elisha he got a double portion of the anointing of the spirit on Elijah. What do we discover about him? All he had to do was just speak. Once he said it, it is settled. As far as I am concerned that is one of the most beautiful aspects of the double portion. Just speak. “Oh you’ll be all right.” And from that moment onwards, everything is all right. “Don’t worry you will have a baby. Don’t worry you’ll be promoted. (Amen!) “Don’t worry, the one who says you will not reach your goal will be there when you reach your goal. (Amen!)” I like that and I want everyone of us will get to that stage and we will just speak and it will happen. He spoke and curses became blessings. He spoke and the incurable became cured. He spoke and the arrestors became arrested. He spoke and poverty became prosperity. That is why I don’t think we should be satisfied with the single portion. One portion is good enough because it will take care of your needs. One single portion of the anointing will destroy all the yokes in your life and it could guarantee you that you will just call down fire on any enemy that wants to disturb you. One single portion can bring your enemies to their knees. But surely you need the double portion. Why? So that you will not only be blessed but you will become a blessing. I don’t want just to be rich – I want to lend to nations. How many of you will be in that category? Let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ then. (Amen!) I don’t want just to be the only one that is saved in my family. I want every one I preach to in my family to be saved. I don’t want to be just the only one that is free. I want to be able to set captives free. And I am sure you will also want that one too.

But there are some crucial points I must bring to your attention. It is not humility to be the tail. It is stupidity. If there is an opportunity to be the head, I prefer to be the head. How many of you will like to be number one? I didn’t hear you. You want to be number one – in everything you do. So shall it be in Jesus’ Name (Amen!)

When you read Genesis 48:11-20 there was a young boy called Ephraim and there was an older boy called Manasseh, their grandfather gave the blessing of the first born to the second born by laying the right hand on his head and putting the left hand on the head of the first born because the double portion is the blessing of the first born. And what happened? Within a short period of time the younger brother has become ten times greater. Ten times. You can read that one in Deuteronomy 33:17. The boy who got the double portion became ten times greater than the one who got the single portion! What does that one mean – the double portion anointing, the double portion of anything puts you far ahead so that even if you have your mates, your colleagues who had already gone before you and you get the double portion this weekend very soon you will catch up with them and very soon you’ll be very far ahead of them.

Second thing – you will find this one in 2 Chronicles 1:12 there God said something to Solomon who got a double portion of the anointing. God said there will be no King like you, before you or after you. The double portion is unique. It makes it impossible for anybody to catch up with you! The double portion will enable you to do something nobody has ever done before. It will enable you to reach a height that nobody has ever reached before and somebody is going to get that double portion this weekend. (Amen!)

How then do we get the double portion? How do we get the double portion? Thank You Father!

The Lord said somebody here had a dream recently and soldier ants drove you away from your place of work. The Lord asked me to tell you, don’t mind the enemy, all those who do not want you to prosper in your place of work, long after they have gone and are forgotten you will still be rising. (Amen!) If you are the one you better say ‘Amen!’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

How then do we get the double portion? There is one thing about God that I have also discovered, contrary to what some people may believe, the first thing is that God does not change – Malachi 3:6 He said, I am the Lord I change not. He doesn’t change so if you study Him very closely and you find the way He behaves sometime and you follow the exact pattern you will get the results that those people got. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Second thing about Him, because He doesn’t change and He’s a God of principles, His principles don’t change. Psalm 119:89 it says forever O Lord they word is settled. Now, that means human philosophies may change, human opinions may change, but the principles of God, if you just follow it, you can be sure it will work and the basic principle of God that we need to look at tonight is the principle that says nothing goes for nothing. Nothing goes for nothing.

Oh but salvation is free – because somebody paid for it and He paid a very terrible price for it. Absolutely nothing goes for nothing. And you will find this principle in Proverbs 12:24-25 It says there is someone who scattereth and yet increaseth. It said there is another one who is always withholding and he decreases. He went on to say the liberal soul shall be made fat and he that waters what shall happen to him? He that waters shall be watered. He put it in Galatians 6:7-10 He said don’t be deceived God is not mocked, whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap. What does that tell you? You sow nothing, what will you reap? My father used to say when he was alive, he said, if you plant 200 yam and you say it is 1000 no problem when the time of harvest comes when you finish eating the 200 that you planted then you begin to eat the 800 you didn’t plant. Because nothing goes for nothing. Everyone who got a double portion paid a price for it.

How many of you still want the double portion. Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Solomon, before he got the double portion that he got 2 Chronicles 1:6-12 says he gave a thousand burnt offerings as a result he became so rich that there was never a man like him before him or after him. Isaac who got a double portion of the blessings of Abraham paid a heavy price for it. Abraham was a sacrificial giver but Isaac was the sacrifice itself. Elisha was not just a mere friend of the prophet, he was the son of the prophet. He wasn’t just one of them; he was the son, he followed Elijah everywhere, he poured water on his hands, he washed his clothes, he cleaned his sandals, he emptied his chamber pot…. O Lord! Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Many of you don’t know what’s going on up here. I will tell you. I will tell you. The man standing by my right is taking a little more than is normal….. no, no, no, I am not joking tonight. Let me tell you a story because I’m trying very hard to make sure that he remains on his legs so that he can … years ago when I didn’t know how to regulate the anointing I went to visit a family, a couple, in Ibadan. The anointing was high. I didn’t know how to regulate it. So I went to greet them. As I came into the house – it was the wife that heard the sound of my car first and rushed out to meet me in the sitting room: “Eh Daddy, welcome – the anointing hit her and she collapsed like …. The husband heard the noise of greeting, rushed out of the room – he didn’t look at what was on the ground – “Ah, you are here!” And the anointing hit him too and he fell on top of his wife. So I sat down there in the sitting room praying that no visitor would come because how will I explain to a non-believer that it was anointing that knocked them out. I have seen the man that I am talking about there tonight. He may not want to show his face.

You see tonight I don’t want to regulate the anointing but at the same time I want to wait till we finish, before we finish preaching then he can move out of the way and then we can let go. How many of you are expecting something special tonight? Let me hear you shout another Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

So what is the price? Let me quickly summarize. If you want the double portion wealth you have to do what Solomon did. You have to give an offering the kind that you had never given before. You want to become so rich that it will be said of you nobody had ever been this rich before, God is a God of principles: do what nobody had done before. He will respond by giving you something that nobody had ever got before. The man whose double portion of anointing I want. And then you will serve that man like Elisha served Elijah until He says, “all right, all right what do you want?” And then when that day comes you will know how to answer.

Now in all cases – I am trying to summarize now – whether it is double portion wealth you want, double portion anointing, double portion of miracle babies, double portion of promotion, you have to make up your mind that from now on you will serve God.Deuteronomy 28:1 & 2 says if you will hearken diligently to the voice of your God, to observe and to do all that I have commanded you this day then these blessings shall follow you and overtake you. The Bible made it clear that God is a rewarder of those who diligentlyseek Him. Our God is very generous – anything you want you can have. You can never ask for too much from God, it is not possible. Ask for anything you want no matter how big. After He has supplied everything you ask for, there will still be plenty left over. One funny fellow said, “Daddy you are talking about double portion of anointing. Does that mean you are about to go?’ I said, “No way! I still have a long, long way to go. I am not the one who will give you double portion – it is my God. We will see tonight!”

I just want to give you an advice; this one is a general advice. We will come to specific advice later on. If I were you, I will make up my mind, that I will give God what I will call a double portion offering. No, no, no that is not the kind of offering you have in your pocket now. They’ve already taken the offering for tonight. We are talking of the kind of offering that God himself will look down and say, “Ah-ah this one is special.” Oh, in the past we have seen people giving land, giving houses, giving vehicles. They know what they are doing.

I‘ve told you before – years ago, I went to the Lord in prayer, the first time I began to understand this double portion principle. And I was talking with the Lord and I said, “Lord, you said, if I ask anything in Your Name, You will do it – anything! Then I want a double portion of the anointing of Elijah plus the double portion of the anointing of Peter plus the double portion of the anointing of Paul plus a double portion of the anointing of You, Jesus Christ, when You were here on earth added together and then doubled again.” I remember that night very well. The Lord said, “Son! You are asking for trouble. ” I said, “What kind of trouble.” He said, “They won’t let you sleep with that kind of anointing, they won’t let you rest, they won’t let you rest!” I said, “Ahhhh…Your grace shall be sufficient!” Thank God His grace is sufficient. (Amen!) I thank God for what God is already doing but I’m sure you know I am not satisfied. I am looking for an auditorium the size of Ibadan city. When we get that one then I will tell you what next I want. How many of you want double portion here tonight. Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Very soon we will begin to move to another realm but the Spirit of God just said to me that some people came after the altar call was made and He brought them here tonight so He could save their souls. The double portion is for children of God, not for those who are not born again so if you want to the double portion and you are not yet born again and you were not here earlier this evening when the altar call was made or you were here and you didn’t give your life to Jesus, if you want to surrender your life to Jesus so that you can have a share in what is coming I want to invite you now to begin to come. I will wait few minutes for you to settle your case. Anyone who’s not yet born again and you want to surrender your life to Jesus, I will count up to ten. By the time I count up to ten. If I don’t see you then I will know that either you don’t want to come or that you have made up your mind the double portion is not for you. But if you want to surrender your life to Jesus, you want Him to be your Lord and Saviour from now on, now begin to come.

One now, two, three, four, five … six … seven … if you are already on the way just keep coming, I know some of you are coming from a very long distance. So the counting refers to those who are still sitting down; who yet are not sure of their salvation who should be coming forward too. It’s for those people that I am counting down. By the time I get to ten then we will know that you have made up your mind, that you don’t want to surrender to Jesus, Jesus can keep His double portion of anything. Thank You Jesus! Nine. Now those of you who are already in front begin to talk to Jesus Christ, Say, Lord, I have come to surrender to You. Just forgive all my sins, save my soul, have mercy on me – I will do Your will from now on. Begin to talk to the Almighty God. Begin to talk to the Almighty God. Say Father, “I have come tonight. Come to surrender my life to you completely, absolutely. I have come Lord Gao Almighty, to hand over the rest of my life to you. You will be my Lord from now on. Anything you say, that is what I will do. Have mercy on me Lord. Save my soul. Save my soul.” The rest of us let’s stretch our hand to these people and pray for them. And pray that the Almighty God will save their souls; that He’ll be merciful to them. Pray for them brethren – that the One who saved us will save them too. That the One who was merciful unto us will be merciful unto them. Let’s pray for them brethren. And of there is anyone still on the way just keep coming, make sure you get here before we finish praying. Oh Thank You Father! Almighty God have mercy on those Your children. Save the soul of every one of them. Save their souls also. Take all the glory Father! Thank You Jesus! Blessed be Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Father, I thank You for these Your children. Thank You for bringing them forward this night because Your word says no man can come unto You except the Father draws him. Thank You for drawing them. Thank You that they have not refused Your drawing. Please accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name (Amen!) Everyone of them Father, forgive them in Jesus’ Name (Amen!) Your Blood that cleanses from all sins let the blood cleanse them in Jesus’ Name (Amen!) And Lord God Almighty, today as You save their souls, write their names in the Book of Life. (Amen!) And from today, every miracle that You give to Your children, give them also in Jesus’ Name (Amen!) And in Your Kingdom don’t let them be found wanting In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Now I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward. We want to make sure that by the time we pray everything is set for the answers to come. There are some people who have testimonies they can go to the back of the altar. There’s a Pastor there who will attend to them. Then there are some people who were carried here we want to pray for them now so that the anointing can begin to work on them even as the programme continues so if you carried somebody forward or to this place you can bring them forward now and the men of God will be ready to minister to them

Tonight is going to be a special night for somebody in Jesus’ Name! In the meantime the rest of us who feel that this must be my night I think you should begin to thank God quietly because something, something is about to break, the wall of Jericho is about to fall. While they are bringing these people forward why don’t you begin to thank God that at long last your day has come? So go ahead! Begin to thank God now!

Yes I can see more and more – yes, keep coming! Bring some of those who are already moving to the front here so they can get stronger and stronger as they move. Mama.. and let that fellow keep coming too! Let’s give the Lord a big hand! What’s wrong with you! Give the Lord a big hand! That’s right! Keep going, keep going brother! Is that all you can do? Is that all you can do for what God is doing here? Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Keep moving, keep moving – that’s better. In the mighty Name of Jesus you’ll get stronger and stronger! Glory be to God! Blessed be the Name of the Lord!. All right keep bringing them to where they have freedom of movement. And those of you who are still sitting down let somebody help them! All they need is somebody to let them know that they can do what the others are already doing. Come on help them! Give them a little push and you will see their faith coming into life. Oh yes, I can see them now – the number is increasing by the minute. Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! One man here is receiving his sight. Let’s give the Lord a big hand for that one too! Thank You Jesus! Christ! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

Wave your hand to the Almighty God. Just give Him the glory, give Him glory for what He’s already doing. Thank You Father! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Thank You Jesus! That’s fine! That’s all right! You will get up again! No problem! In the mighty Name of Jesus! We need a sister here! Thank You Jesus! Thank You! Glory be to God! We need a sister here among the ushers – where are they? Where are the sister ushers? Thank You! Pay attention to that lady. Now I want the Pastors to pray one more time for those of them who are still on their seats. Give them a second touch of the anointing. Pray for them one more time! Pray for them one more time! Pray for them one more time! Let’s give the Lord a big hand for all those who are already on their feet! When we praise Him He will do more! Get excited for what He is doing! Don’t say because you see it everyday therefore it is a common occurrence – it doesn’t happen like this all the time! It is the miracle-working power of God! Give God the glory! That’s right keep coming! Keep coming! Keep moving! As you move you get stronger! And I need some Pastors to pray for this boy that is just being brought in. Over there – please, to my right. I need some Pastors to pray for that boy that is being just brought in. Pastors please! There’s one boy that is being brought in here. Where are they? That’s right, please attend to that boy please! Quickly! Glory be to God! Thank You Father!

Now those of them who can walk now, let them begin to move back to their place now! Yes, from now on you’ll be on your feet In the mighty Name of Jesus Keep going! Keep going! Keep going! If he wants to rest a little, let him rest a little and then let him go on and continue from there to your seat. Blessed be the Name of the Lord! We can have some music more as they begin to go to their place. Ah they carried you forward and now you can walk back to your place. Let’s give the Lord a big hand as they go! Keep moving!

And even of you are not on your feet yet but you have been prayed for twice, the anointing of God is already deposited in you and it’s working already so you can go back to your seat also. Now let’s lift our hands to the Almighty God and then begin to praise Him and begin to bless Him because our night has come at last! Now the rest of us here you can go back to your seats please.

He’s worthy! He’s worthy! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Thank You Father! Glory be to God! ….

If it were in America and they carried 1 fellow forward and that fellow walked back or they bring a hundred forward and 1 walked back the way, they would rejoice more than you have rejoiced! And yet tonight those who walked back are more than 12 and yet … oh! You are not excited because you see it everyday! No, no, no … we just have to do it one more time! One more time! I want you to really shout! I want you to shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) One more time! Alleluia! Thank You! God bless you! You may be seated.

Now we’ve come to an awesome moment and I want you to be very, very attentive. If you fall asleep at this time it would be very, very unfortunate. Daddy asked me to tell you two stories. I’m just obeying Him. You probably, some of you who are very close to me have heard the first one. It happened in 1975. I was a worker in the church. My Father in the Lord said any worker who came late that day would be severely punished so when we got home from morning service none of us could go to bed so that we will not sleep and forget time. My wife and the children were in the living room downstairs and I went to my prayer room upstairs and when I got there I sat on the bed praying and after some time I felt I should stretch my back so you know what followed. I fell asleep. When it was time to wake up I felt a hand touching my leg and presses the leg so hard that I woke up. When I woke up I saw nobody. I thought it must be my wife who had come to wake me to say, “Oh it is time to go!” So I rushed downstairs and lo and behold! My wife and children were fast asleep in their chairs!

The Lord reminded me of this incident some days ago. He said I should tell you this story because of something that is about to happen tonight.

In the year 2000, in the year 1999 rather, I was in Germany and I fell asleep again at a time when I shouldn’t fall asleep and the same hand that woke me up in 1975 came and woke me up again. The Lord asked me to tell you these two stories and to tell you this that when He touches a body His anointing stays permanently on that body and when e touches a body twice the anointing that is deposited there is double portion. There are certain other things that had happened in between and since then but which he says I don’t need to tell you.

So He now asked me to do something tonight. He told me to prepare 3 shirts and wear these 3 shirts for a certain number of days and nights. Now I won’t tell you how many days, how many nights, that’s none of your business but He says on this first night I’m to wear all 3 shirts after wearing the 3 shirts because of the anointing that is going to transfer to the 3 shirts I should ask you if any of you will want one of the shirts. How many of you want one of the shirts? Now since it is not possible for me to give a shirt to every one of you, He said what I should do is that on this first night I should remove one of the shirts, fold it in a particular way which I don’t need to explain to you – put it in a basin and fill the basin with oil. And He says that oil will carry the anointing in the shirt to every one of you. (Amen!)

This is not a joking matter. When Elisha got a double portion of the anointing of Elijah what he actually held was his dress, his mantle. Almighty God is simply re-enacting what happened then tonight. Now I will want to beg you please that you must follow instructions to the letter. One of the things you must note is that when they bring the oil to you and you touch the oil, before you apply it at all, make sure you are seated. You are what? Seated. What do I say? (Seated..) Whether you are an usher or cameraman, if you are standing when the anointing touches your head, whatever happens to you will not be any of my business. Pastors you will do your own last and it is when you are seated you will apply it to yourself. When you touch the oil, you will touch your head, you will touch your mouth and then you will rub the remainder on the palm of your hand. The one on your head is going to take care of every yoke in your body. (Amen!) The one in your mouth is going to ensure that the prayers you pray tonight will all be answered. (Amen!) And the on in your hand is going to ensure the beginning of your prosperity. I will remind you at the appropriate time but now let us begin. I need a basin.

When you are applying the oil. Some of you who are old enough will remember. There is a time when the Lord asked us to wear 7agbadas. How many of you remember that year? Then He said we should spread it on the altar. Then He said we people should come and just touch one of them not hold but touch but one brother felt that touching is not going to be enough so he grabbed it. I am sure you will remember that his entire body shook from 8am till 5pm – 8-5 pm – and he was almost dead before they came to call us to pray for him. Please, let’s be obedient this is not a joking matter. The Almighty God is here. How many of you believe that one? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Good. So you be in your seat., Very important – be on your seat. When they bring the oil to you, dip your hand in it, touch your head, touch your mouth, rub the remainder on your palm and then you can begin to pray where you are seated. Because of time we will start now. Please Pastors.

We thank God for our instrumentalists. God will keep on blessing you but the plan of God is that the instruments should be background to the voices. When the trumpet and the guitar begin to compete with the voices it becomes wrong. They should be at the background. IF you go through the Scriptures – the number of times God call for the instruments compares to the number of times He called for voices – the ratio is extremely wide apart so let us go a bit lower with the instruments and higher with the voices. The Lord will bless you mightily. (Amen!) If you hear that Pastor Adeboye asked you to send money so that he can send you anointed oil hand the fellow over to the police – he is 419! Thirdly I am sure you want to know what will happen to the other two shirts. You will hear that one Saturday evening. Everything at it’s own time. Now if you have received your oil more than 5 minutes ago you are free to stand now because we want to pray. The prayers we want to pray. I don’t need to beg you to pray. If you like pray them. If you like don’t pray them. If you like pray them like ladies and gentlemen. If you like pray them like someone who is desperate. But the first thing we want to do is to show God we appreciate what He has done. Let me tell you this, the power of God came down so mightily that at a stage, in my prayer room, I had to fill my bath with cold water and put my legs in because my legs were burning! What God has transferred to you tonight is not a joke, it’s not a joke at all. And so the first thing I want you to do in appreciation to God is to shout a Big Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Amen!

Our first prayer – you will lift your voice to God and shout to Him and say Father, and say, “Father!” I didn’t say murmur, I said shout… “Father, Open thou my lips and my mouth shall show forth thy praise. Everything that is not allowing me to speak about You freely, every reproach in my life, remove right now!” Open your mouth and pray! “Open thou my lips … Lord God Almighty remove it tonight, right now, as I am praying! Remove it right, right now! Open my lips! Open my lips O Lord and my mouth will show forth Your praise! Every reproach in my life, small or big, everything that does not allow me to open my mouth wide and preach You the way I ought to, talk about You the way I ought to, whatever it may be – remove tonight O Lord! Remove it tonight! Thank You Jesus! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Open thou my lips O Lord! and my lips shall show forth Thy praise. Yes Lord! Everything blocking my mouth, every reproach in my life; everything that will not allow me to speak with all the boldness necessary, My Father and my God! remove it tonight, remove it right now! Open Thou my lips O Lord and my mouth shall show forth Thy praise! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

The second prayer. Father, from now on………the moment I pray, as soon as I pray let the answer come, let the answer come, let the answer come. Right now as I am praying Lord, let the answer begin to come, let the answer begin to come. He moment I pray let the answer come……. Thank You Jesus! Blessed be Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Now it is time now to really begin to pray since you have already told Him Your anointing has touched my lips… the moment I pray the moment I pray now let the answer come.

The next prayer is, Father every plant that You did not plant, from the top of my head to the soul of my feet, and in my family, in Your church, in Nigeria – uproot now! Uproot violently – let’s go the Almighty God! Every plant that You did not plant from the top of my head to the soles of my feet – in my body, my soul, my spirit, in my home, in the Redeemed Christian Church of God; in my village, my town, my state, every plant You did not plant, – uproot now and uproot violently! Uproot now! Uproot now! Uproot now! Uproot now! Right now Lord, uproot them! Yes Lord! Every plant You did not plant uproot them Lord to the glory of Your Name. Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Next prayer: Father, every garment of suffering remove from me today! Let’s talk to the Almighty God. Every garment of suffering, Every garment of pain, Every garment of sorrow, Every garment of poverty, Every garment of failure – remove from me today Lord! Far away from me! O Lord God Almighty. Every garment of suffering, every garment of shame, of pain, of agony, of sickness of disease, of failure, remove far away from me O Lord! Remove far away from me! …. Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Next prayer: Father, for the rest of my life let there be a permanent gap between me and tragedy – let’s talk to the Almighty God For the rest of my life O l! Let there be a permanent gap, mighty gap, between me and tragedy! For the rest of my life. For the rest of my life. For the rest of my life. Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Thank You Father! O May Your Name forever be glorified!. Permanent gap between me and tragedy. Never let any tragedy come near me at all for the rest of my life, for the rest of my life! No more tragedies! Keep tragedies far away from me!! To the glory of Your Holy Name Lord! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Now you now what is pressing in your mind. It’s time now for your own private prayer. Talk to God now – Your own private prayer. That which is very, very pressing in your heart. Let’s begin to bring our prayers to a close. In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Father, my own prayer is one. At the very beginning of the Holy Ghost Service You asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I told You Daddy that I wanted every member of my congregation to have a miracle. Today Lord is the anniversary of that day. So Father, my request one more time is that all these children will have testimonies. Whatever they’ve asked for give them double (Amen!) Double health! (Amen!) Double joy! (Amen!) Double prosperity ! (Amen!) Double promotion! (Amen!) Twin children (Amen!) Double Anointing (Amen!) Double power! Double progress! (Amen!) Father give them double in Jesus’ Name (Amen!) Thank You my Lord! Glory be to Your Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Now let somebody now shout a big, big Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Thank You Jesus! Thank You Father! Glory be to God! You may be seated. By the way before we move to the next item, you will remember last year I called on God to give us a special month for children and He gave us April for children. And you remember we brought our children from all over. We prayed for them and you know it is very refreshing, God granted these children supernatural protection from then to now. An example is that all our children that fell into the canal during the Lagos problem came out alive. (Amen!) You probably heard the testimony of a family that ran into the canal with 3 children and they were there for 3 days and they still came out alive. (Amen!) So I have asked God again. Please Daddy give us another time and He has agreed that next month will be a special month for children. So please bring all children, let’s lay hands on them one more time and get divine protection for them – from death, from demons from all kinds of problems.

Now what I’m about to do next I am doing in obedience to the One who called me. I am where I am today because by His grace I hear from Him and I do what He says. And that’s one of the reasons why I want to make another appeal to all my Pastors in particular, for God’s sake don’t ever say, “God said…” When He hasn’t said anything. If you know someone who is always prophesying when God has not spoken to him, pray for the fellow because he’s walking on very dangerous grounds.

Now Daddy told me that He wanted four groups of people. Don’t decide which one you are going to be until you have heard me through. Let me tell you before hand. Even if you volunteer to be in any of the groups, I’m still going to take your name to Him in prayer. If He says He doesn’t want you there, you will be out! So that when it is time to write your name and the group you want to belong to, please write your address clearly. You are only in that group if and only if you receive a letter from me within the next four weeks.

Group 1: God says He wants 1000 people who will be willing to fast 60 days a year for the next ten years. That’s Group 1. I’m not even finished. Out of the 60 days half of it must be continuous! That will tell you that that is not a very easy group. He wants only 1000 people there only.

Group 2 is easier: 1000 people that will volunteer to work free of charge for 60 days in a year for the next 10 years. That’s Group 2. And free of charge means whatever work is available at the Camp you’ll be told. Whether it is concrete mixing or head pan carrying – 60 days in a year for the next ten years. That’s Group 2. 1000 people only.

Group 3: 1000 people who are willing and able. Willing and what? Able. Not by force. To give God 1 million naira a year for the next 10 years.

Group 4: 100 people only who are willing and able to give God at least – what did I say? – willing and able, at least, 10 million naira a year for the next ten years.

Now when Daddy told me these four groups. I said I know that by your unchangeable principles nothing goes for nothing. What are you going to give these groups in return? “Oh” He said, “Number 1 no matter how hard the enemy tries they won’t die in the next ten years.”

Number 2 Group 1 – those who are going to fast for 60 days for the next 10 years. Daddy says, any gift of the Holy Spirit they want, whether it is that of healing or the working of miracles or prophecy any gift of the Holy Spirit that they want He will give it to them.

Group 2 those who will be doing manual labour for Him 60 days in a year, the Lord said He will enable them to enjoy what is called divine health for the next 10 years.

Group 3, those who are willing and able to give Him 1 million naira for the next ten years, those who are willing to give Him and are able, He said He will begin to show them the true meaning of prosperity.

Group 4, the 100 who will be willing and able to give at least 10 million naira to God per annum for the next 10 years, the Lord said He will quietly transfer the wealth of nations to them. Now you don’t have to believe me. You could say, “Eh, this man has come!” No problem! He’s not looking for everybody. He’s looking for 1000 here, 1000 here, 100 there and of this crowd definitely there will be those who will say it’s a joke and there will be those that God will say you are the one I am talking to.

I said to God the moment I heard this thing, “Suppose somebody wants to belong to more than one group?” Because I am a greedy person, I want to belong to more than one group. For example Group 2, I don’t see how, with the work I am doing that I will be able to do this manual labour for sixty days a year and I want to do it. He said that’s no problem, if you employ 2 people to work for you, then the 2 will get half of the blessing and you will get half, half combined, you’ll get one. So I am already looking for one bricklayer and 1 carpenter that will stand in for me.

Now, while I was talking, if God ministered to you and said “that’s your group”, you will take a paper and write on top either Group 1 or Group 2 or Group 3 or Group 4 or if you like 1 and 2, 1 and 3, 3 and 4 or maybe you want to write 1,2,3 and 4! And then you write your name and address. During the thanksgiving that is going to follow you will drop that thing in the offering basket. We will sort everything out. Take each name to God in prayer. If God says you are one of the people He wants you will get a letter within 4 weeks If because of our postal system or whatever, you don’t get a letter within four weeks, and you are still convinced beyond all doubt that you must be one of them then you can check from the office and say – Do I have a letter that was posted to me? They will have copies of letters sent out. And if you need a piece of paper, wave your hand, the usher near you will give you one.

So I now said to the Lord what about the remaining hundreds of thousands of people? Oh He said they could give Him anything they like towards the work here, just make sure they write at the back of their envelopes – Special Project. But the harvest will be proportional to the seed. So if you need a piece of paper wave your hand, the ushers are nearby, they will give you a piece of paper. Write your name, write your address and specify which group you want to belong to.

Now while you are doing that I believe that the next thing we should do tonight is just thank God for the marvellous things that He has done tonight. Is there anybody here tonight who has been blessed? Are you sure? So we will give our thanksgiving offering to the Lord; I will pray another special prayers for you and then the MC will come and give you details of the programme for Saturday because Saturday from 12 noon the programme continues and I am believing the Almighty God that as usual He will leave the best till the end… .. So we’ll give you just one more minute to write if you are writing while the band will get ready and then the ushers will get ready to attend to us for our thanksgiving offering.

Let me repeat one more time because we have received reports that some people are writing and phoning to our people abroad saying that the GO wants them to send some dollars and pounds so that they can send them anointed oil…. I am not a business man. I don’t sell oil, I don’t sell candle, I don’t sell water, I don’t sell handkerchiefs – what God gave me, He gave me freely and freely I’m given, freely I give. So if you ever find anybody like that for God’s sake just hand them over to the police.

So let’s get our thanksgiving offering out and we remain seated as the ushers come out to collect. When they finished collecting I will come to pray. So if you have finished writing your … whatever you are writing – which group, your name and address – just drop it in the offering basket as the ushers are coming round. God bless you! Over to you brethren!

God bless you!

God bless you!

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

When Jesus Christ was crucified the disciples looked at one another and said, “We are finished! We are finished!! We thought we were going to be great but now we are finished! We thought we were going to be ministers in a new song His kingdom now we are finished.” But when He rose from the dead they had a new song. I want you to cry to the Almighty God – “Father! Tonight, tonight, put a new song in my mouth! “ Come on! Call on the Almighty! Daddy! Tonight, put a new song in my mouth! Father! Almighty God Controller of Heaven and Earth! – Put a new song in my mouth… a new song… a new song! Anew song! Where I used to say ‘I have failed.’ Let me now know no, no, I have succeeded! All where I thought I am finished Lord God Almighty! let me begin to say, I am just beginning a new song, a new song, a new song, a brand new song, a brand new song! Glory be to Your Holy Name! A brand new song of success, My Lord and my Saviour! Put a brand new song in my mouth, in my mouth, in my mouth, in my mouth! Put a brand new song in my mouth! Put a brand new song in my mouth! Thank You Father! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed!

When Jesus was on earth He made all kinds of promises particularly to His children. Many of them were not fulfilled u until He died but when He rose again from the dead, every one, every promise, including receiving power, including spreading the Gospel throughout the world, including laying hands on the sick and seeing them recover, including casting out demons, including the enemy seeing them and running – they were all fulfilled/ You are going to cry to the Lord and say, Father! Beginning from now, every promise of yours concerning me, let them be fulfilled!” Cry to the Almighty! Daddy! From tonight onwards, everyone of your promises concerning me, concerning my body, my soul, my spirit, concerning my finances, concerning my education, concerning my ministry, concerning my family, concerning Your church, concerning this nation – all Your promises Lord! Tonight, let them begin to find fulfillment, let them begin to find fulfillment, let them begin to find fulfillment! Almighty God All your promises concerning me let them be fulfilled! Let them be fulfilled! Let them be fulfilled! Let them be fulfilled! Let them be fulfilled! Right now! Right now! As I pray, All Your promises concerning me, let them be fulfilled, let them be fulfilled! , Let them be fulfilled! Lord God Almighty! All Your promises, all Your promises, concerning me Lord, let them be fulfilled, let them be fulfilled! Thank You Lord! Glory be to God! Thank You Jesus! Alleluia! Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed!

One more prayer – before the day of resurrection the disciples were ordinary men but after the day of resurrection they became people that the whole world is still talking about 2000 years after they died. God took them to heights they can never believe possible so one final prayer – with all your heart, you are going to cry to the Lord and say, “Father! From tonight, take me to a height much higher than I! A higher plane Lord! – Much, much, higher than I –Lord, plant my feet on higher ground, take me to a height much higher than I, Almighty God take me to a height much higher than I! Take me to a height much higher than I Lord! Take me to a height much higher than I! Take me to a height much higher than I; much higher, much higher than I. .. to the glory of Your Holy Name Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord! Oh.. a higher plane than I am found. Lord plant my feet on higher ground. Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord! Take me to a height much higher, Take me to a height much higher, Take me to a height much higher, much, much, much, much higher than I am Lord, that Your Name might be glorified. Take me to a height much higher than I am and I will praise you forever. Thank You Father! Glory be to Your Holy Name! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed!

So let’s go before Him now and worship him one more time. There is none holy as ….

…put laughter in our mouths, put joy in our hearts, put dance in our feet, silence the enemies (Amen!) remove every stumbling block from our lives and let all be well. Thank You Daddy! Glory be to Your Holy Name because You will take us to heights greater than we. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! Amen Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia’ (Alleluia!)

Thank You Daddy! The Lord said there’s someone here tonight you would have died this month but now He’s given you a new beginning. (Amen!) Let’s give the Lord a big hand – that’s a great one! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Don’t sit down yet! I told you things will be different tonight so if you can stand, stand. If you can’t stand begin to stand. So shall it be in Jesus’ Name!

Psalm 91. We want to read it together. If you have no Bible you have to pretend that you have one. If you have your Bible say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!) Let me see your Bible – left it up! Wave it! That’s your sword – wave it and make the devil mad! Wave your Bible, let the devil know you are cutting his head and then let me hear you now shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). All right now. Psalm 91. We are going to read it together. Are you ready? It may sound like noise but it will be a joyful noise to the Lord.

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

If you believe that shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Shake hands with 2 or 3 people and say “God is talking about me here. God is talking about me here!” And then you may be seated.

Let me start by saying I thank God for the various choirs that had ministered tonight. You are good, you are good, really, really good. And then equally I want to thank God for the choir from Ogbomoso that was good. As for my children from Jesus Embassy that was excellent! As for my children from Ifewara that was fantastic! My friends used to say in those days He who no go know go know and he who no know go know. Those who think that Ifewara is a backward little village…he who no know go know. Let somebody join me in shouting Hallelujah!

Now why do we have a Special Holy Ghost for children? I want to thank God for the preacher who preached first. He did an excellent job – any time he’s preaching you could see me writing furiously because he’s one of the old hands. I’ve known him for years! And he had always been very sound – that’s a very good description. So may God bless you Pastor Obanure – that was good. That was good.

Who actually is a child in the sight of the Lord? By reading Psalm 90: 1,2 & 4 it is clear that anyone who is younger than the mountains is a child. Anyone whose age is less than 1000 years is a child. So how many children are here tonight then? Let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ Why do we need a Special Holy Ghost Service for children? In addition to the beautiful message we have already heard I want to add just a few more.

Number one – safety is of the Lord. Safety is of the Lord Proverbs 21:31 says The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD. Many of us when we were young, when we were born, in our villages and little towns because our parents knew we were surrounded by so man hostile forces – witches, wizards, herbalists, forces that want us to die even before we can walk, they tried to protect us with all kinds of charms – and nowadays we find that in the white medical sector, oh they say, you must inoculate your child against tetanus, you must inoculate your child against this, you must inoculate your child against that. Charms, inoculation are prepared against the day of battle but safety is of the Lord.

Psalm 20:7-8 It said, Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God… Some trust in charms, some trust in inoculations but they should have known there is no inoculation against witches and wizards, no injections against demons but we trust in the Lord and our children trust in the Lord so while others fall, they will stand.

Oh, to go even a step further – some people in order to protect themselves from all these evil forces they say, well if you can’t beat them, join them so they join secret societies. Some of them become witches and wizards and they say, now we are secure, death can no longer kill us but Isaiah 28 verses 15-16, the Lord says because you think you have a covenant with death and hell you are secure. The Bible says all your covenant with all these evil forces shall be annulled!

Oh I remember the story of one man, a senior police officer and he belonged to several secret societies and then he did something wrong and he became a case and so he went to his secret society. The e judge was a member so he thought there would be no problem at all. Okay, when he got to the society, they told him this one is beyond us there’s nothing we can do about it and the following day he committed suicide. And even unknown to him the case for which he committed suicide was not even continued. He trusted in his covenants with forces of darkness but they disappointed him on the crucial day. We have somebody who will never disappoint – His name is Jesus – safety is of the Lord.

And that brings me to number two reason. Because safety is of the l that is why those who are wise stay close to Him. That is why the text we read just now – Psalm 91 v.1 & 2 tells us that they that dwell in the secret place of the most high, they are the ones who will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. Now take note it doesn’t say they that will visit the place of the most high once in a while, it said they that dwell. That’s why I want to advise you – don’t bring your children only once in a while, don’t come before God and leave your children at home! If you are here with God and your children are there at home, you are leaving your door open to the enemy! Bring them each time you are coming. Oh Pastor don’t you now that these children – they are a burden? But they are a burden of joy – that is the kind of burden we don’t want God to take away. That’s why I’m praying for all of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb. Your own burden of joy will come in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

David said in Psalm 22:4-5, he said, only one thing do I desire of the Lord, one thing will I seek after – that I may dwell in the house of the Lord forever. He said because in the time of trouble He hides me in His pavilion. In Psalm 23:6 he said, Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…. Take note, he didn’t say, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow us…” from time to time I hear people, after they have shared the grace,… “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow us…” I never follow them to say it because it is not scriptural. The only one that goodness and mercy will follow all the days of his life is the one that will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. How many of you will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever? Let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ then! (Amen!)

You know the Bible says in Psalm 16:11, he said – in the presence of the Lord there is fullness of joy. The joy of somebody will be full tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Safety is of the Lord. Those who are wise come close to the Lord and they stay close to Him but why? Because there are fowlers out there. Psalm 91:3. It said, surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler…. There are fowlers out there. 1 Peter 56:8. It says that your adversary the devil, like a roaming lion is walking about seeking whom he may devour. He will not find you. He will not find your children in Jesus’ mighty Name!

And then he went on to say in verse 4 of Psalm 91 – how is he going to protect us from the fowler? – It said, He shall cover thee with his feathers and under his wings shalt thou trust.’ Those of us who come from the village – how many village boys and girls are there? So many? Let me hear You say ‘Amen’ (Amen!) How many city boys and city girls are here? Let’s here you too say “Amen!’ (Amen!) You are so many. Okay because you are so many then I need to explain because the village girls and boys, they know what I am talking about.

When your hen has produced chicks in the village, the hen and the chicks they roam free and as they walk about eating worms and whatever there’ll be an eagle up there and the eagles love to eat chicks. Now the chicks don’t know there is anything called an eagle – they just keep on enjoying themselves but the hen has been around for some time and had known there’s something called eagle. And she knows when the eagle is near because she will see the shadow on the ground. It will see the shadow moving so it will look up and say, oh.. The eagle is up there..” and then it does something – sound an alarm to all the chicks- “Chicks come! There is danger!” So the chicks will run to their mother, and the mother will lift her wings and the chicks will cone under the wings and then it will spread the feathers over them. And the eagle will look down from above and will see only one big fat hen – too big to be carried and then it will go somewhere else. After it has gone the mother will release the little kids and they will go on eating. But once in a while when the mother hen sounds the alarm there’s always one chick or two who will say “Mama, don’t bother me! I’m enjoying myself! There are some ants here, very delicious! “ Mother says, “Come! There is danger!” I can’t see any danger! I can only see food. I’m enjoying myself!” so the eagle will look down and say, “Oh, there’s one chick there!” Then he will swoop down and in a flash, pick up that chick and that chick is gone. How many of you know what I’m talking about? The Bible says in the Psalm 91, that we have just read, that our father, our Daddy has wings and whenever the fowler is around He will call us together and say – come under my wings. And then He will cover us with His feathers. Tonight the wings of the Almighty is going to cover somebody. If you are the one let me hear you say “Amen!”

David said in Psalm 32:7 He said thou art my hiding place. You shall preserve me from trouble and you will compass me about with songs of deliverance. In Psalm 9:9-10 the Bible says the Lord will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in the time of trouble. And then in Psalm 46:1 the Bible says God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in the time of trouble. God has brought us together tonight to hide us under his wings so that any trouble the enemy may be planning for us, the enemy will fail. (Amen!) I say the enemy will fail. (Amen!)

But then it says he will deliver these from the snare of the fowler. Again, those of us who are village boys we will understand what that one means. There’s something we call the snare – trap – when we want to catch an animal in the bush we know how to do it. You go into the bush and you look around, you can see the path of a particular animal. It takes the eyes of a village boy to locate it. If we bring one of you city people you can stay in the bush for one hour everything you see will just be bush. But thoise of us from the village, we can say, this is the track of a rat, this one belongs to a squirrel, this one belongs to a rodent – ah these are the footsteps of a deer! Thank God for being bush boys! Glory be to God! And then once you have located the path of the animal, you dig a hole there and put a trap in the hole, cover it with leaves and then you cover it with soil. You do it in such a way it will take an expert to know that there’s anything inside there. Then when you’ve done it like that, in order to make the job easier still, then you put some food, the particular type that that particular animal, you put a little on the left and put a little bit on the right and the trap will be in between so when the animal comes its normal route, suddenly it finds food and it says, “ah-ha there was no food here last night. How come this food suddenly appeared? If I had been eating this kind of food I won’t be so old! So he’ll turn back but he’s hungry. This is food, this is food! Maybe God has provided. So he will say, I will move far behind and just take a little bit. He tales the first one, nothing happens. He takes a little more – no problem, until he finishes everything you have put on the first site, By now he is enjoying himself and then he’s looking at the one on the other side. I might as well go and eat the other one and as he makes the step forward the trap will close on him! That is the way of the devil, that’s the way he catches many, many people! Sin is sweet. Pastor Adeboye says if you sin you will die… don’t mind him! Go ahead enjoy yourself so you try it first time, you try it first time – nothing seems to happen, everything seems to be okay. So you try the second time, and then the third time and then the fourth time – before you know it the trap has closed. Suddenly you begin to – …. Wait a minute, what’s happening? Everyone of you that had been caught by the trap of Satan you will be loosed tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

In Psalm 124:7 it says: our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowler. It says the snare is broken and we are escaped! Today the Almighty God has brought us together to release they who are already caught by the fowler. All you need to do is cry unto Him and He will bring your soul out of the prison of the enemy. There are fowlers out there, they are out pursuing, setting traps, looking for people who they will capture and the Almighty God is the only one who can deliver from them. He’s the only one who can protect you from falling into their snare because many, many times the animal does not even know there is a trap there waiting for him.

The Bible says He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty, it said for such people a thousand may fall at their side, ten thousand may fall at their right side… it said no evil will come near them at all and I know God is talking about me there. But then the question is what, who are the people who can abide with Him? Psalm 15, if you read it from verse 1-5 it put the question simply and said, Lord, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in Thy holy hill? He asked the question and then He began to give the answers – He that walketh uprightly, that walketh righteously, that speaketh the truth in his heart, he that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, that taketh not up a reproach against his neighbour and on and on and on.. Who can abide with the Almighty? Who can dwell with Him?

The summary of it is – he who will depart from evil. He who will forsake sin. He who will be willing to live a life of holiness because only birds of the same feather can flock together. You cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound. The question then comes…. Who can depart from evil? Proverbs 16:6 it said by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil. Proverbs 6:6 by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil. That’s why the Bible says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. If you are not afraid of God; if you don’t fear God, you will not depart from evil. I know some people say, “No, no, no.. we are not supposed to fear God we are just to reverence Him!” May I tell you the truth – the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Anyone who is not afraid of the One whose name is a consuming fire is a fool. It is only those who fear the Lord who depart from evil. I remember years ago when we were young, whenever some people are talking about something evil we will say, “God is listening! God is listening! I have no hand in it – God is listening.” The reason why people can do whatever they like now is because they have forgotten that God is listening. The reason you can plan how to destroy somebody else is because you have forgotten that God is paying attention. If you are afraid of God you will depart from evil.

Tell your neighbour you need to be afraid of God. I say you need to be afraid of God. And you see the beauty of it is this – those who fear God, there are tremendous advantages for them! In fact when I study the Bible I just discovered that fearing God alone might be more than enough to solve all your problems. I will give you some – it is not possible for me in one lecture to give you all the advantages of fearing the Lord.. Look at Psalm 31:19-20 he said there are great goodness and security that Almighty God has laid up for those who fear Him. He said, he will hide them in his presence. The moment God knows that you fear him he said there are some great goodness that had been hidden for you. Let’s see some of them. Psalm 112:3 He said, Blessed is the man that fears the Lord, his seed – that is his children – shall be mighty! How many of you want your children to be mighty? I’m yet to meet somebody who would want his children to be houseboy, housegirl, messenger…. I remember one fellow – he was a very poor man, he was a washer-man in the hospital and every one of his children he gave them big names. He called one “Manager”, one “Prince”, I’ve forgotten the name he called the other one but each one had big names. In other words he said look, in my own case it is settled, this is how far I can go, but you, you are going to be a manager, you – you are going to be a Prince and you, you may be Managing Director! How many of you want your children to be greater than you? So shall it be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) It says, Blessèd is the man that fears the Lord, His seed shall be mighty, his generation shall be blessed.

Psalm 128 … and your children will be children of peace. He went on to say – you will be blessed out of Zion. Mount Zion is the city of God. Zion is the place where there is always deliverance. He said the Almighty God will bless you from His throne room. He went on to say you will live long enough to see your grandchildren. (Amen!) In other words he says, if you fear the Lord there is no way you can die young! And went on to say if you will fear the Lord, you will enjoy peace. (Amen!) You know there are some people who grow old and pray that God will kill them but if you fear the Lord even in your old age there will be so much peace: You will eat the labour of your hand, you will be happy, it will be well with you, your wife will be fruitful, your children will be anointed – they’ll be children of peace.. (Amen!) God will bless you out of Zion, you will live long to see your grandchildren and you will enjoy peace.

But that’s not all. Look at Psalm 25:12-13. It said, if you fear the Lord certain things will follow. Number one – your soul shall dwell at ease. There’ll be nothing to worry you. I have discovered long ago the only person to fear is God. Once you fear God, you have nothing else to fear. If you fear the Almighty God He will defend you. Anybody who tries to attack you will be attacking the apple of His eyes. That is why you find some people that just go about anywhere they want, completely at ease because they fear the Lord. And then it went on to say that your seed shall inherit the earth! In other words your children will be so mighty they’ll be the controller of the whole world. (Amen!) And then he went on to say something in Psalm 25:14; he said if you fear the Lord He will begin to reveal His secrets to you. One of the things I love most about my work with the Lord is that from time to time He tells me what is coming. And I’m telling you it is a beautiful thing to be able to hear from the Lord. I know some people are already worried now – they are afraid for the rest of the year. Oh, some of them are even panicking concerning next year. And I already know what is going to happen. “Oh, what is it that is going to happen?” I can tell you – it is going to be well with me. I don’t know about you, but it is going to be well with me. I can tell you, those of you who had already done your fifty days fast, you can sit down now and begin to enjoy the rest of the year. (Amen!) Those who have not done their own – God have mercy on you! But the secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him. The Bible says in Proverbs 10:27, it said the fear of the Lord prolongeth days. In other words, if you fear the Lord you will just keep on living. You will see your children, you will see your grandchildren, you will see your great grandchildren and you will be at peace.

Now, but this is for us parents, we parents we must fear the Lord, we must teach the children the fear of the Lord because Deuteronomy 6:2, it says if you begin to teach your children and grandchildren to fear the Lord and to keep His commandments, God will prolong your days. I want you to tell your neighbour, “I’ve told you before – you need to fear the Lord, you need to fear the Lord.”

And what kind of children will attract God’s blessing? I think it is time now we talk to the children and when we say we are talking to the children, we are talking to those of us who are children. I am a child in the hand of Almighty God but I also have children. What kind of children will attract God’s blessings? Number one – wise children, wise children. Who is a wise person? The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Wise children. Proverbs 3:21-26, it said, my son be wise, if you are wise the following things will happen. Number one, it said, you’ll be safe as you move about. Wherever you go, safety will be yours. Number 2, it said you’ll be safe when you sleep. Number 3, it said your sleep will be sound and sweet. Number four, it said you will have nothing else to fear. And then number five it said the Lord will be your confidence. You will be able to stand up boldly and say, “ I know I am secure because the Lord is on my side.”

What kind of children will attract God’s blessings because when they are wise, whether they go to the school, whether they are in the boarding house or the house, as they move about they will be safe. When they sleep at night, they will be safe. When they are sleeping, their sleep will be sound and sweet, there’ll be nothing to frighten them and the Lord will be their confidence.

Number two – the kind of child that is going to attract God’s blessing must be a submissive child, a child that submits to the parents. Exodus 20:12 it said, honour your father and your mother, that your days may be long! Honour your father and your mother so that you will not die young. If you honour your father and your mother, one day you too will become a father and a mother. In other words, it says if you dishonour your father and your mother, you are not likely to become a father or a mother. And we have a good example in Genesis 22. You can read the whole story from verse 1-18. Genesis 22:1-18 it is the story of Abraham and Isaac, when God asked Abraham to offer Isaac as a sacrifice. Remember at that time Abraham was almost 120 years old and Isaac was about 15 years old – healthy, strong, and then he asked the father, “Daddy, we can see the wood, the fire, the knife, wood, fire , knife … where is the lamb for the sacrifice?” Because he was feeling uncomfortable. Oh the mother said, “Oh, the Lord will provide Himself a lamb for the sacrifice.” And then they got to the mountaintop. The father prepared the altar and then said, “My son, lie down.” “What! You are going to kill me?” What do you think some fifteen-year-old boy would have done? I mean do you think a man who is almost 120 years can overcome a fifteen year-old boy? I mean, I would have thought.. Something is wrong with Daddy.. and when Daddy said, lie down, he will just run away, that is all. Even if he didn’t tell him to lie down – if he grabbed hold of him to put him there by force, do you think he could have succeeded? I have sons and I’ve shaken hands with them before and I know that the power in their hands now is the power that used to be in my hands some 40 years ago. It’s not their any more. I remember when we were building the Camp here some 20-something years ago. I could carry one bag of cement on my left hand, one on my right! And I will say I’m balancing the equation. Now I wouldn’t try that! I’m not so stupid as to try that now. But Abraham said to that boy, “Lie down.” And he said, “Yes Daddy.” He tied him and he submitted When you read verse 15-18 when God began to speak, “Abraham because you have done this, by myself have I sworn, in blessing I will bless you, That’s what he said to Abraham. Then God turned to Isaac, I will bless your Dad but I will multiply you I will make you far, far greater than your Dad. You will take over the territories of your enemies. You will be blessing to the whole world. A child that submits to his parents – while the parents will be blessed, that child will be multiplied, that child will take over the territories of the enemies. That child will become a blessing to the whole world.

Ephesians 6:1 The Bible made it clear that you are not only to obey your biological parents, you are to obey your spiritual parents too. You obey your Pastors, obey your Sunday School teachers, obey those who are in authority over you spiritually because that is going to enable you qualify for a double portion of their anointing. And then Proverbs 23:22 says, hearken to thy father, despise not they mother when she is old. Now that’s one thing that all children need to note. You see when mama begins to get old she may not look as beautiful as she used to look but remember your Mum is your Mum. When your father is getting old and some teeth begin to fall out and some hairs begin to disappear, he may not look as healthy or as strong or as handsome as he used to look but your father is still your father. Honour them because a sentence from them can determine the course of the rest of your life. When your parents say it will be well with you you can be sure it will be well. And that’s why I am saying to all of you who are here today, it will be well with you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

I’ve said it again and again, I keep saying it until it will sink – I am what I am today by the grace of God and by the prayers of my Mum. Whenever I satisfy my mother, she will always say: You this child, you will call one person, two hundred will answer. At that time I didn’t know what that one meant but I know today if I say, “Pastor, come!” I know that more than 200 Pastors will come running. As many of you children who will fear the Lord and honour your parents from today onwards, if you call one person, one thousand will answer! (Amen!) I didn’t hear your Amen to that one… (Amen!)

Why are children so special to God? Psalm 127 verse 3, it says, children are the heritage of the Lord. Children belong to the Lord they are just given to us parents to look after them. Matthew 19:13-15, it said the Kingdom of God belongs to children so in other words if old people want to enter the Kingdom of God they have to get permission from the children. Matthew 18:1-4 said that the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven are the children. Matthew 18:3 made it clear, if you want to enter the Kingdom of God, you have to convert and become like a little child. If you are not willing to become like a little child you can never enter the Kingdom of God. That is why you will discover that many, many people will not be able to enter the Kingdom of God because they will not be able to take it easily as God presents it. I mean because when you want to enter into the Kingdom of God you put your brain aside and let your heart lead you. It has to be by faith, not by reason. That’s why many, many academicians find it so difficult to surrender to Jesus. I know the problem I had before I could surrender to Jesus. But thank God, finally, I saw the light. I pray that those of you who are still struggling today, you will surrender to Him and see the light also.

The Kingdom of God is only a Kingdom of faith – not by argument, not by reasoning, not by science, not by philosophy. It has to be by faith. And that’s one beautiful thing about children. They find it so easy to believe. They have taught me several lessons. Children have taught me several lessons…. On faith! Even when it looks like the faith if an elder is shaking, the faith of a child will carry the day! And I’m sharing a secret with you. I f at anytime you have prayed and you don’t seem to be getting an answer, ask your child to pray for you, ask your child to lay hands on you and pray for you in the name of Jesus. By the time that child says Amen you can be sure it is done because a child does not doubt.

My Sunday Scholl teacher taught me something years ago. One of my elders there now, he taught me in Sunday School. He gave an illustration on faith that destroyed all my arguments. He said if a child is standing on the balcony of a house and the father is standing down there and he says, “Daddy, shall I jump? And the Daddy says, “Jump, I will catch you.” What will the child do? That was the lesson that changed my life completely when it comes to faith. Even the human father may fail. The child may jump and the father may discover that ah.. the child is heavier than I thought. Or both the father and the child may fall but underneath are everlasting arms. My Father in heaven can never fail. HE can never fall. How heavy am I? In the hand of the One who supports the whole earth in His hand? If the Almighty God asked me to jump. I will jump. That’s why I’ve been jumping. That’s why I jumped for Lekki ’98. That’s why I’ve been jumping for Festivals 99 and 2000. That’s why I jump in the Congress of 2001. That’s why I’m going to keep jumping. It is because I jump, that’s why we have Redemption Camp today. It’s because I’m going to keep jumping that one day, everybody in Nigeria will be a Christian. (Amen!)

How many of you know that God can never fail? Let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)Are you willing to jump into the hands of the Almighty? That’s what He’s saying when He says you must be born again… Forget your brain, forget your position, forget your reasoning. Daddy says you must be born again That’s settled, surrender your life to me and I take over from there./ All you have to do is surrender. That’s why I’m calling on those of you who are here tonight, who are not yet born again. Become like a child. Surrender. Give your life to Him. Let Him take over! You have been managing this ting yourself, how far has it taken you? You have been protecting yourself before, with charms, with covenants with all kinds of things. How far has it taken you? But here comes somebody, the Almighty God Himself, saying, Put your life in My hands! Surrender! Some trust in horses, some trust in chariots but we trust in the Lord our God.. Safety is of the Lord. Come like a child. Surrender your life to Him and He will take over from now on.

So. if you are here and you are not yet born again, or you are here and you are not sure of your salvation – before we do anything further come and surrender your life to Him. Wherever you may be, come and stand before the altar, let us pray together that the Almighty God may forgive your sins; that He will save your souls; that He may begin to take care of you from now on. So if you want to give your life to Jesus. I’m going to count up to ten. From wherever you are come now – the Lord is waiting to receive you and to forgive you. If you refuse to surrender to Him He’s not going to force you but then don’t blame Him if the devil keeps on torturing you.

One, two… If you want to give your life to Jesus you must get here before I say ten.. three.. four…five – its not by force – the choice is yours: either you come to the Lord or you stay with the devil. Its either you come to your maker or you keep on depending on all those secret societies, all those herbalists and they keep on lying to you, and they keep on cheating you… instead of coming free of charge to the One who made you, the One who never fails, the One who will never sleep, who will never slumber.. six now, if you know you want to come you have to hasten your steps because God is not going to wait for you forever. He brought you here because He wants to be merciful unto you but you can refuse His mercy – the choice is yours! Seven now. Now I know there are some of you coming from a long distance but you have to hurry up now. This is your own day of salvation. Come and surrender your life to Him! Come and say Lord. take over from here. He said, “Come unto me, all ye who labour and are heavy-laden and I will give you rest. He wants to give rest to you. 8 now. As soon as I reach ten it will be too late because God has given you this opportunity and He has been talking to you since this evening, He has been speaking to your heart – it is now up to you to decide. Nine now, nine – before the gates of mercy will close – hurry up! Come quickly from all over the place! Everywhere… come the Lord is calling you.

Now those of us who are already in front, let is begin to pray and say, Father I’ve come to you tonight, come to surrender myself to You. Have mercy on me! Save my soul! Forgive my sins! … The rest of us in the congregation, please stretch your hands towards them and pray for them that the Almighty God will save their souls, that He will be merciful unto them. That the o=One who saved your soul will save their soul also and if you are still coming you better hurry up before it is too late! This is your day, this your hour of salvation. The Lord is calling you now, He’s saying come, come before it is too late. Come now, come and give your life to Him! Cry unto Him – Father, have mercy on me, save my soul, be merciful unto me, be merciful unto me tonight, forgive all my sins, come into my life, come and be my Lord, be my Saviour.. the power that is in Your Blood, let it wash away all my sins, let it wash away all my sins. I surrender to you tonight. I surrender completely. I surrender completely Lord. I surrender I surrender I surrender my life to You. Completely, completely, completely Lord. I surrender my life to You. Wash me in Your Blood Lord, save my soul, make me a true child of the living God Lord. I surrender Lord I surrender completely. I surrender completely. Take over from now, be my leader my Lord, my Saviour from this moment onwards let me be Your child, doing Your Will, all the days of my life. Give me true salvation tonight. True salvation tonight, that Your Name might be glorified. Thank You Father! Glory be to Your Name! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed!

My Father and my God! we want to bless Your Holy Name for all these Your children that have come forward. If there’s any one still in the crowd that is not yet born again, even before we finish praying Father bring such people forward in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) These Your children that have come forward I commit them into Your hands. Forgive their sins. (Amen!) Save their souls. (Amen!) Wash them m in Your Blood. (Amen!) Write their Names in the Book of Life. (Amen!) As they have surrendered to You please receive them Lord (Amen!) don’t let them ever go back into the world. (Amen!) Writ their names in the Book of Life (Amen!) And anytime they call on You from today answer them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) In Your Kingdom don’t let them be found wanting (Amen!) In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! Amen. Praise the Lord!

Before we thank God I need to maybe tell you a story. A brother came from Upcountry and brought his daughter and said, “Sir, help me, my daughter is a witch.” “how can you say this beautiful little thing is a witch?” He said, “I’ll tell you the story.” The daughter woke up one day and said, Daddy, do you know I’m a witch? And the father said, what kind of nonsense is that? Shut up! I’m not joking, I’m a witch. Ah what do you mean?. Shut up. The child said, “You want me to show you evidence?” The father said, ‘Okay, yes.” And the child went under the bed of the father and pulled out a pot full of blood. So the father picked the child and began to run down to Redemption Camp. Ho did you get into this? The child said, “I went to school and somebody gave me a sweet to eat and from that time I began to attend meeting at night. And I just don’t like it. I don’t like the way we are killing people and drinking their blood.” Anyway so we prayed and God set the child free as God is going to set all children in the same situation free tonight. (Amen!) But after the prayer so I now said, “She’s free now Papa, you can go.” He said, “Oh no, the child will stay here with you at the camp. I said, {No, no, no, it’s your child…” “I can’t sleep in the same house with her anymore.” I said, “Don’t be silly my dear, before she confessed who has been protecting you?”

Brethren, we don’t know how many dangers had passed over us. I think we need to thank God that up to now He had not given us over to the fowler. Let’s pray. Let’s talk to the Almighty God. Father, I want to thank You that up to this moment You have not handed me over to the fowler, I want to thank You that You have not allowed my enemies to triumph over me. I want to thank You because even in my innocence You have been protecting me. When I’m sleeping, You have been protecting me because You never sleep, You never slumber. I want to thank You for Your protection over me, for Your protection over my children. I want to thank You that You have not allowed the fowlers to take over my children. I want to thank You. Let’s go ahead and just thank the Almighty God from the bottom of our hearts – say Father, I thank You that up to this moment You have been my refuge, You have been my fortress. I thank You that You have not allowed my enemies to triumph over me. I want to bless Your Holy Name. Thank You because You have been my rock. How many battles have You fought on my behalf that I don’t even know about? I want to thank You. How many enemies do I know that I have? Many of the people smiling at me as friends are my enemies? Do I know? Only You can tell. It’s You had been protecting me. I want to thank You, thank You for Your protection. Thank You because safety is of the Lord. Thank You! for shedding Your light into my darkness. I bless Your Name! I bless Your Name! I bless Your Name Lord ! I bless Your Name! I bless Your Name forever! Thank You! for being so good. Thank You! for being so kind. Thank You! for being so faithful. Thank You! that You are always there for me. I praise You Lord. I bless Your Holy Name Thank You! for being so constant that even in the time of trouble You are there. You are the ever-present help in time of trouble. In all these ages past You have been there for me. I thank You Lord. Go ahead thank Him, bless His holy Name…

…More anointed, O Lord make them more prosperous! Let them be holy, let them be pure, let them serve You! Let all my children be more blessed than I! Let them be greater than I Lord! Let them be far, far, greater than I! Almighty God Let all my children prosper more than I! let them love You, let them serve You, let them live a life of holiness, a life of purity, of humility, a life of a close walk with You! Father, let my children be greater than I, let them be mightier than I! Let it be so Lord! Almighty God let it be so! Let all my children be far, far greater than I – far, far, superior to me Lord. Help them. Help them Lord! Let it be so Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed!.

The next prayer is a very special one. I’m not going to beg you to pray it. If you like don’t pray it. Say, Father don’t let me ever bury any of my children. Let’s talk to the Almighty. The great I Am that I AM I call on You today Lord, don’t let me bury any of my children…. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed!

The next prayer is very similar, Father Don’t let me have cause to weep over my children. Let’s cry to the Almighty God. Don’t let me ever have cause to weep over my children. Don’t let my children go mad. Don’t let them go astray. Don’t let me ever have cause to weep over my children! Let my children be children of joy, children of peace, children that will bring laughter to my mouth. Don’t let me have cause to weep over my children! Father, I beg You tonight don’t let me ever have cause to weep over my children. Please Lord, don’t let me weep over my children. don’t let me ever have cause to weep over my children. Please don’t let me ever weep over my children. Thank You Father. Blessed be Your Holy Name! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed!

Now finally, you are going to say Father, help me so that myself and my family will serve me forever. Let’s call on the Almighty God: Help[ me Lord, so that I’ll be able to say, but for me and my house, we will serve the Lord – myself, my family, my children, my grandchildren, my generations after me, that we will serve the Lord, serve the Lord only, we will serve the Lord only. Help me Lord that me and my family we will serve the Lord, the Lord and the Lord alone! Lord help me that me and my family we will serve the Lord only! we will serve the Lord only! we will serve the Lord only! Oh We bless Your Holy Name. Let me and my house serve You forever. Let us serve You in fear, in trembling, let us serve You in holiness, let us serve you in love, in joy, let us serve You with everything we have got! Lord let my family serve You forever! Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed!

Now if you have your own private prayer, maybe for yourself or for your children or your family, talk to God now, talk to Him. It might be something special that you want God to do for your family. Talk to Him now. Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord!… Let’s begin to bring our prayers to a close. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed!

Father, we bless Your Name that up to now You have not allowed the enemy to triumph over us. Glory be to Your Holy Name! Father, accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! Now Lord I commit all these Your children into Your hands. Every prayer they have prayed tonight answer them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Keep the fowlers away from us in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) If there’s any that has been caught Father, release tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Do something special tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) By the time the sun will rise Father, let our joy overflow. Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! Amen! Let somebody now shout ‘Alleluia’ (Alleluia!)

So let it be!

The Lord said there is somebody here tonight, the enemies have surrounded you, they are just about to swallow you up… Daddy asked me to tell you, you shall seek them and you will not find them. (Amen!)

Father says there’s someone here tonight, someone had told you recently that there is no hope left for you, Daddy asked me to tell you, I will be your hope (Amen!)

The Lord said there’s a woman here, somebody told you specifically that the only way you can have a child is to adopt one. The Lord asked me to tell you, very soon from your own womb, your child shall come.

Father we want to bless You tonight, we know this is a special night, we know you will surprise us. After all you are the King of Kings, You are the Lord of Lords, whatever You want to do nobody can stop You. When You open a door nobody can shut it, when You shut it, nobody can open it. When You decide to promote nobody can stop You. Glory be to Your Holy Name! Tonight Father, surprise us! Save souls tonight. Heal tonight Deliver tonight. (Amen!) Let there be miracles tonight. (Amen!) Let there be signs tonight (Amen!) Let there be wonders tonight. (Amen!) Let there be victory tonight. (Amen!) Let there be blessings tonight. (Amen!) Let there be shoutings tonight. (Amen!) In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia” (Alleluia!)

Well, I know there is somebody here tonight who is going to find favour with God. Let that fellow shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) That’s not bad but I know there is someone here tonight who is going to find the greatest favour with God. Let that fellow shout the greatest Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Thank You Jesus! Now I want you to shake hands with at least 7 people – don’t come here – and tell them: “God is going to show me favour tonight! God is going to show me favour tonight! I say, God is going to show me favour tonight!”

I’m the one God will show favour to tonight. Oh yes I’m going to find favour with God tonight. I’m the one God will show the greatest favour tonight! Oh yes no doubt about that, God will show me favour tonight. Oh yes He will show me favour tonight. Amen! Alleluia! If you believe that shout another ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) and then put your hands together for the Almighty God Thank You Jesus! Thank You Lord! God bless you, you may be seated.

Before we go because once we start only God knows how we are going to end, we are going to end very gloriously….. God will favour tonight – let me hear you say “Amen” (Amen!)

People have asked me again and again what do you come to the Holy Ghost night to do? And you spend all night! What do you go there to do? Then why do you keep coming every month? Now I’ve told them we come to Holy Ghost for 3 major things. Number one we come to worship God and I can never be tired of worshipping God. As a matter of fact I am looking forward to that time when we will do nothing throughout the night than just worship God. The second thing we come to do is to study the Word of God because the Word of God is food to the Christian. And by that we grow. And the third thing we come to do is to pray because God commands us to pray without ceasing. These are the three things we’ve cone to do. Any of the three is lacking then the night is not good.

Tonight we have had wonderful worship. I give God the glory for that. We have prayed a little, we are going to pray much more! And I want to give God glory for that in advance. Now we are about to go into the Word of God – a very crucial part of the three. We come to do these three and after we‘ve done these three, whatever follows will be divine response to what we have done! If we praise Him correctly, He will speak and you will be able to hear – thus says the Almighty… If we study the Word of God correctly, souls will be fed and we will be able to go home feeling, “Thank God, I have been well fed”. We’ve done some eating already. The man who spoke first, is almost all my sermon. I was wondering whether he was able to peep into my notebook somewhere… but then of course I know as the elders will say – they said if the leaf stays long with the soap it will become soap. I think we should give God a big hand for the one who gave us the first message.

And then we are going to pray. Somebody has led us in prayer. The one who led us in prayer is my only prayer partner. If I let her go, we won’t be able to do anything here tonight! So when we praise Him and we study the Word and we pray then God will respond and then miracles follow – signs follow – wonders follow – like somebody’s going home tonight with miracles in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) But because there is a lot to study tonight I might not be able to mention the miracles as they are happening. But you can be sure they are going to happen because God told me specifically for example, that tonight He’s going to work from the waist down so all kind of miracles are going to happen at the waist, at legs, at ankle bones at joints – tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Now that doesn’t mean that’s the only thing He’s going to do but that is the special area where He’s going to pay serious attention tonight. Why? Because He said there are some people who want to dance for Him and they are not able to do so very well. I know somebody is going to go home dancing tonight Say: “It is me!” Say it loud and clear!

I want to talk tonight about Divine Favour. What is Divine Favour? Numbers 6:24-26 tells us the blessing that the priest is to pronounce on the children of Israel. One of the statement’s there is: May the Almighty God lift His countenance upon You and may His face shine upon you … you can’t even say ‘Amen’ to that? … And be gracious unto you… When we talk about the divine favour we are talking about the face of God shining on you. In Yoruba the interpretation of the favour calls it “Good face”. That means there must be ‘bad face’. By looking at the face of somebody you can tell whether the fellow is happy with you or angry with you. If you come up on somebody suddenly, the fellow began to smile broadly, you will know that this fellow is happy with me. And if you see somebody and he looks at you as if – if it were possible for the eyes to just kill you, you yourself will know, I better stay away from this fellow! Today God is going to smile on someone. (Amen!) He’s going to smile on at least three people – myself, my wife, and one other fellow – who is the other fellow? Let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

Now basically, amongst several other things Divine Favour will do certain things for you. If you find favour with God certain things will happen. Because I have told you, Divine Favour is like the rays of the sun, it is like the sun shining. And when the sun is shining you can’t hide from it. Just like the preacher who spoke first said, when the ray of God is shining upon you, it will locate you wherever you may be. The favour of God found Moses at the backside of the desert. It found David where he was looking after the sheep. It found Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus and I am confident that same ray, that favour of God is going to find somebody tonight at the Redemption Camp.

Another thing that that favour does, like we have been told is that it singles you out of a crowd. It doesn’t matter how many people are there, the favour of God will just zero in on you and say ‘You are the one I want!” You yourself will not understand how. Several years ago I was travelling – I can’t remember whether to America or somewhere – and the plane was full and I’m talking about those days when even to get the money for economy ticket I had to pray. I was seated, the plane had taken off. Suddenly, somebody was coming from the very front. One of the top officers of the plane and he was looking and looking and look at the seat number and said “You are Pastor Adeboye?” I said, “Yes Sir.” He said, “Come with me.” What have I done sir? Because I know I paid for my ticket. He said, “You have any carry on? ” I said, “Yes. It’s up there.” He opened it. He said, “Which one?” I pointed it pout. Then he picked it up. The plane is already in the air so they are not going to throw me out I’m sure. And then I followed him. And I passed the place where they call business class. I was seeing that place for the first time. I said, “God this place is beautiful.” But he kept going. He didn’t say anything! He was going and I was following! And then he took me to where the first class is. I’ve never been there before and I saw the seats, double the one I was coming from, and there was only one person there. “You are to sit on that side sir.” and I was looking at him – what’s wrong with this man. He said, the pilot said, he doesn’t want the one man here to be lonely that he should go and find somebody to sit with him and when they went through the list they found that there’s only one peculiar man on the plane – he’s a Pastor, the others are businessmen. So he said “go and get that man.” I’m telling you that day, I sat down….. Who is going to be upgraded tonight? Let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

The favour of God will single you out of the crowd – for blessing – like He singled out Abraham for blessing. In Genesis 12:1-3 because when you read the Book of Genesis, the first mention you hear of Abraham is in Genesis 11 and nothing was said about him that he was either good or bad. They just told us this is this man, he’s the son of so-and-so and the next thing we heard was – “and God said unto Abraham, Blessing I will bless you, I will make you great, I will make you a blessing. Anyone who blesses you, I will bless, anyone who curses you I will curse, through you shall all the nations of the earth be blessed!” What has Abraham done to deserve that? Nothing. But God just said, I want to bless somebody and I can choose anyone I want and so I decide to choose ….. Adeboye! Who’s God going to bless tonight? Let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

The grace of God will single you out. The favour of God will single you out. Not only for blessing but for promotion, for greatness. That’s how He got David – in 1 Samuel 16:11-13, David was just minding his own business in the farm. But God singled him out for promotion, for greatness. So shall yours be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

The favour of God will single you out for a miracle because if you read Mark 10:46-52, the Bible says Jesus came to Jericho and as he was coming out of Jericho a great multitude followed him! A multitude followed Him! But how many of the people in the multitude got a miracle? Only blind Bartemeus who was by the highway side begging! There was a multitude following but only one got a miracle – somebody’s going to get a miracle here tonight. (Amen!)

Now when the favour of God has alighted on you the next thing that it does is that God speaks to you. Anyone that God decides to favour He will speak to. I’m sure somebody came here tonight and is already saying “Ahhh, everything they’re saying today, it is as if somebody told them about me!” “And there are several other people who will still hear from God tonight! When Noah found favour with God, God spoke to him. When Moses found favour with God, God spoke to him. When Saul of Tarsus found favour with God, God spoke to him. God will speak top you tonight. (Amen!)

And then the next thing that the favour of God does after it has located you, after it has singled you out of the crowd, after God started speaking to you, is that suddenly, your situations will change! And change so radically that things will never be the same! After God located Moses by the backside of the desert, in Exodus 3 and He spoke to him, suddenly the life of Moses changed, never to be the same again. The one who had been forgotten – suddenly became a man who was remembered. And you who have been forgotten God has decided to remember you tonight.

When David found favour with God, the boy who was despised by his relatives, the one who they would never have been presented for election to be king, became a celebrated person. Up till today we still talk about David. When we talk about Jesus Christ we talk about David because we say Jesus, thou Son of David…. When the favour of God comes upon you your situation changes completely. Never, never to be the same again. I think that God called us together tonight because in His infinite mercy He has decided that the time has come to change the situation of certain people so radically that things will never be the same again. And I’m sure I’m the first one on that list.

But then I want us to take a close look at what Divine Favour can do for you. Let’s take it topic by topic. What can Divine Favour do for you physically? If you are sick and you are considered incurable and you find favour with God, you will suddenly discover that the incurable will begin to have a testimony. In John 5 that my brother mentioned earlier on – from v.2-9 John 5:2-9 There was a multitude by the pool of Bethesda. Jesus came there, saw a man who had been there for 38 years. His face shone on that man. He went to that man, healed that man and left the place. There were several others. Divine Favour singled out that man for a miracle. Tonight, it doesn’t matter how far gone our case may be. I am confident that the face of God is going to shine on you! (Amen!) And single you out for healing!

When you read the story of 2 Kings 5:1-14. It tells us the story of Namaan that you know very well – how he was healed and how he nearly missed healing because when they told him to go and wash and be clean, he was angry, he was on his way back you see but when God has decided tot favour you, He will take care of your anger, take care of your pride, take care of all your unbelief and do what He wants to do…. Finally he got down and washed and was made clean. But you see, Jesus said something in Luke 24:27, He said there were many lepers in Samaria in the time of Elisha, only one was cleansed! How many? One! Out of the many, one found favour. Somebody’s going to find favour with God tonight. And I’m going to be that one in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You Father!

Now I told you that the healings were already on. There’s one that I’m too excited to keep this one to myself… the Lord said there’s somebody here, He said the fire burning in your chest had been put out. (Amen!) You know what it means, the fellow concerned knows what it means – when you find favour with God physically you get healing.

What about materially? When you find favour with God, suddenly, whatever you touch begins to prosper and people will begin to wonder how? You sell water and you become a millionaire. You are selling firewood and you are riding Mercedes. How? You’ll be able to tell them – Divine Favour! I mean just one contract and all of a sudden for the rest of your life you can enjoy.

I remember one brother who asked me to come and dedicate his house. When I got to the house – I am not usually surprised and even if I am surprised, I’ve learnt to keep it to myself but this one the surprise showed. And I was looking at this and looking at that as a matter of fact, if he wasn’t there, if he left me there and said, fins your way out, I will probably miss my way. He made a statement that caused me to say, “Wait a minute, tell me how?” He said the only thing in this house that is not imported is sand. Every other thing you see here, Oh Daddy, it’s all imported! How? He said, well somebody sent for him and said there is a job I want you to do for me. He thought it was a small job. The job just kept on expanding, expanding, expanding. He said, all I do now is just wake up in the morning, praise God because the money keeps coming in and I can’t stop it! There is somebody here today who is going to have a similar testimony. (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you say ‘Amen’ Loud and clear!

The man who spoke before me had already told you. He said in Luke 5:1-7 Jesus was preaching by the seaside. He saw two boats. One belonged to Peter. One belonged to somebody else and by favour of God it was Peter’s boat that was chosen. By the favour of God your boat will be chosen tonight. (Amen!)

When God decides to favour you there is no way you can escape being prosperous. God decided to favour Abraham and by the time you read about him in Genesis 24:34-35 the Bible said Abraham was keeping servants as if you are keeping goats. As a matter of fact, when the enemy captured his cousin Lot, he had an army already in his own house! Abraham looked at his servants – they were enough to form an army.

When God decided to favour you, you cannot escape prosperity whether you like it or not. If He says, ‘I’m going to prosper you!” Prosperity will come! That is why you need to pray for favour tonight.

What about maritally? If God decides to favour you maritally it doesn’t matter what anybody may say, you suddenly discover that certain strange things begin to happen. If you have been considered barren and God decides to favour you, suddenly those who have been laughing against you will begin to laugh with you. If God decides to favour you, He will draw the attention of all those who will help you to you. I mean in 1 Samuel 1:9-20 we find a woman who was so full of sorrow while she was praying in the temple because she was barren that if she had been praying out that day, no-one would have noticed her but because her mouth was moving and no sound was coming it got the attention of the High Priest.

We were having a programme in the old Auditorium. Everybody prayed and I closed my eyes and I was praying because I need prayers, I don’t know about you! And suddenly God spoke to me and said, “Son – open your eyes!” I was almost telling God – “Daddy, I’m praying!” But then I know He wanted to do something. “Open your eyes, son!” “Yes, Lord.” Then He pointed a woman to me in the crowd, wet with tears. He said, “Go and tell her: Stop weeping” I didn’t know what was happening then – I knew the details later. Apparently the woman had been barren and the in-laws were giving her hell of a time and finally her day came. God singled her out of the crowd. I just went to her, tapped her by the shoulder, delivered the message of God: Sister, God said, stop weeping…” Ahh, immediately, her face changed. It was as if the sun was coming out of a cloud. “You mean God finally located me?” God will locate somebody here tonight. (Amen!)

Some moths later when the lady came with her baby, carried her baby in her arms – it was now my turn to weep! I was weeping with joy. Favour will locate you! (Amen!) It will locate you physically. (Amen!) It will locate you materially. (Amen!) It will locate you maritally. (Amen!) Now when you read Proverbs 18:22, the Bible says whoso findeth a wife, findeth a good thing and obtains favour of God. Anyone of you looking for a wife, you will find favour with God today! (Amen!) And those of you looking for a husband, I mean those of you who qualify for a husband and you are looking for your own husband not the husband of somebody else, you will find favour with God today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) So when Divine Favour comes materially you will prosper, physically, you will begin to enjoy divine health, maritally, if you have no husband you’ll get a husband. (Amen!) If you have no wife you’ll get a wife. If you are barren, you’ll have children. (Amen!) What about mentally?

Thank You Father! You know Daddy said He’s going to work on legs and He’s just told me that He’s replacing the anklebones of somebody. Let me hear somebody shout ‘Alleluia’ for that! Alleluia!

When God decides to favour you mentally suddenly you begin to have wisdom that you never can explain. You know Daniel 2:20-22 tells us that wisdom belongs to God and He gives wisdom to the wise. If anybody lacks wisdom God said you should just ask God. That’s in James 1:3. You will find that when God decides to favour somebody mentally, he has a wisdom he himself cannot explain – that’s why you find that in a family of maybe 5 children, 6 children, you will find just one that is brilliant and the others are just ….. God have mercy! You just find a genius among maybe 5 children and that’s why you find the father may not be able to write ‘O’ with the bottoms of a bottle, the mother can hardly add 2 + 2 together and get four and the son will become a professor! And you begin to wonder – how? Because God decided to show favour to that fellow. Somebody is going to find favour mentally tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Now what about what happens when God decided to favour you spiritually…..

Thank You Daddy! This one is big. The Lord said there’s somebody here that your brain had been damaged as a result of spiritual attack. Let’s give the Lord a big hand!

The anointing here tonight is very terrible. I’m sure some of you have not seen this one before. There was a time I preached like this – by the time I preached for one hour I will need 3 interpreters. We are trying to keep everything under control …… but tonight is somebody’s night! Whose night? I can’t hear you? Whose night?

The Lord was saying that there was someone here who’s brain had been damaged as a result of demonic attack and your people have been trying everything they can to amend that brain The Lord asked me to tell you tonight, He has decided to replace the brain. Let’s give the Lord a big hand for that, that’s a good one! That’s a good one! That’s a good one!

We were talking about Divine Favour spiritually. When you find favour with God spiritually absolutely anything can happen. Luke 8 for example, verses 1-3, we find that when a witch found favour with God she became a divine treasurer. First of all she found favour with God – deliverance came and then usefulness for God came also. In Mark 5:1-20 a mad man found favour with God and he became an evangelist! He was a madman but he found favour with God – he became an evangelist!

There are several other things that can happen when you find favour with God spiritually. Suddenly you have the ability to see into the future. Without being a prophet you just suddenly discover that you have a simple dream and in detail everything that is going to happen will be related to you. Like Joseph found favour with God and while he was very young he already knew what was going to happen to him. And just like the man who spoke before said, that’s why I said maybe he read my note! Elisha was a farmer – he as not among the sons of the prophets. But he found favour with God and very soon he became the father of all the sons of the prophets. When you find favour with God spiritually, you’ll be able to see the invisible, you’ll be able to hear the inaudible and you will qualify for a double portion of anointing.

But then what happens when you find favour with God ministerially? Because there are many ministers of God here – who are ministers of God, ordained that we all know – but everyone who is born again, baptized in the Holy Spirit, is a minister of God – all you are waiting for is favour from God. When a minister finds favour with God, it becomes easy for him to do the work of God. He will preach a simple sermon and souls will be saved. I remember the first time I attended Billy Graham’s crusade in London. I listened to the sermon. Any worker in the Redeemed Christian Church of God can preach the same sermon….. not pride, I’m saying the truth…..… then he gave the altar call – it was as if people just wanted him to say, “Come forward”. And do you know we bought a ticket to go and attend the crusade. The ticket was in the range of £5, £10, £20.. Can you imagine? Buy a ticket to go to a crusade? What’s the difference? Favour of God! The favour of God! The favour of God was upon him! The favour of God is upon his ministry. He finds it easy to win souls for God.

When you find favour with God – any door you knock will open. I remember very well – when we wanted to start the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Israel, they told me – the Ambassador told me categorically – “Sir, don’t let us waste our time – they will not register any church here. No way!” And that he is even coming from where…. “Let’s forget it!” I said, “Sir, the Redeemed Christian Church of God is different, the favour of God is upon this church. It is not a man’s church. It is God’s own church. He’s the one who named it.” So I said, “this one is different.” He said, “All right. No need to argue with you. I’ve told you the truth, you don’t want to believe. Let’s go ahead. ” So we applied. Today we have more than 14 parishes in Israel. Why? Because when they got our application – everything that could go against us, they didn’t see because there is Divine Favour! Somebody’s going to find favour here tonight. (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Then let us talk about all-round favour now. I’ve talked about favour in the physical, favour in the material, favour in the marital, favour in the mental, favour in the spiritual, favour in the ministerial. Let’s talk about All round favour because somebody’s qualifying for All round favour tonight (Amen!). And for us to be able to understand All round favour – when we study just one man. His name is Joseph. He had All round favour. Physically, if you study Joseph very well, I have studied him very well, I’ve written a whole book on him because I like him and I want to be like him so I studied him closely and I found that in my deep study of Joseph that lasted me two years there is not a single place in the b where it said, “And Joseph was sick”.

At the end of 110 year – 110 years in Genesis 50:22-26 Joseph woke up one day and said, ” I die” and just went home after 110 years. Not a single day of sickness! He just woke up one day and said, “I’m going home”. Isn’t that beautiful? There is somebody here tonight, for the rest of your life – no more sickness. (Amen!) No more pain! (Amen!) No more aches! When you are satisfied and you are ready to go, you just call your children together and tell them: “Children, I’m going home”. Isn’t that beautiful? And you can have it if you find favour with God.

What about materially? If you read Genesis 45:4-13 Joseph said, “God has made me Lord of all Egypt.” and he sent to his father and he said, “Come with all your family. I will feed you for the rest of your life.” Somebody who can say that – go and bring a whole tribe I will feed then for the rest of their life – that man must be rich. I’m telling you that man must be rich. When we come for the Convention and we feed everybody who comes for only one week, we know how much it costs for one week. Can you imagine somebody saying that he wants it feed this crowd for one year? Or for somebody to say, “I want to feed the whole town for every day until they all die”? That man must be rich. There’s somebody here tonight who very soon, will come to Daddy GO and say, “Tell me – how much does it cost to feed everybody during Convention? And from now on I will be responsible!” Who is that fellow going to be? You better shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

What about mental favour? If we read Genesis 41:39 Joseph was referred to here by Pharaoh and Pharaoh said, “there is none as wise as thou art….. there is none as wise as thou art..” because Joseph found favour with God he has a mental capacity that is frightening…

What about marital? If you read Genesis 48:8-20 you will discover that in the home of Joseph there was peace, there was harmony. He had 2 sons – everything anybody could want in a home was there – he didn’t even have to look for a wife – one was given him! He had favour!

What about spiritual? Of course, I’ve already told you – he was a dreamer. But not only was he a dreamer, he found favour – he was even able to interpret dreams. He could tell the future.

What about materially? As far as Joseph was concerned – everything he touched prospered. Genesis 39:21-23. Everything Joseph touched prospered, even in prison. When they took him to prison, very soon he became the man in charge. I’m telling you if you are a prisoner and you are the one in charge of the prison then that’s not bad because it is after you are fully fed that the rest of the prisoners will eat. From today on now somebody’s going to find favour with God. (Amen!) And your office will begin to prosper because you are working for them. (Amen!) Joseph had all-round Divine Favour and because he had All round favour – because it is possible for a man to find favour all round, I am confident that there is somebody here today who will find All round favour with God. (Amen!)

Now very quickly. How can I attract Divine Favour? What must I do so that God will look down with favour upon me? What must I do so that when God decides to smile on everybody here, I will be one of the people He will locate? One thing I have always done, wherever I find certain things happen to certain people, I study their lives – what do they do that others are not doing so that they have had the success which they have had which others have not had? So very quickly, let me look at all those people who have found favour with God and see if they have certain characteristics.

The first thing you will discover about all those who found favour with God is that they are all worshippers. The Father seeketh such to worship Him know how to worship God! John 4:23-24, the Bible says, God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth for the Father seeketh such to worship Him! God loves worshippers. If you want Divine Favour learn to worship God. Don’t wait for the Pastor to ask you to praise God be fore you praise Him! Don’t wait till they pump you before you shout Alleluia!

I will tell you a secret… whenever I’m in the bathroom, I sing! Why? Because there’s nobody there to hear me except God so there’s nobody to criticize my voice… whether the voice is good or bad – I wasn’t singing to you in the bathroom. Who else can I be singing to in the bathroom? And I dance! Since nobody is beating the drums, you can’t say that my legs are missing the beat!!!

When God looks down on somebody who wakes up in the morning and says “God – You come again….. I’ve been asking You to do something, You didn’t do it! What kind of a God are You anyway?” And then God looks in another direction and finds somebody who wakes up in the morning and says “Good morning Daddy … ahhh.. how great thou art! Thank you for waking me up again! After all where there is life there is hope! You didn’t allow the enemy to kill me overnight! I want to dance for You a little! Which of the 2 will find favour with God? If you are going to find favour with God let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) It is not easy for some people – simply because they are not used to it! Let me hear you one more time shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

If you look at Abraham….

The Lord says there is somebody, your hand that had been tied has been loosed. (Amen!). Oh yes – put those hands together for the Almighty! Thank You Lord! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! That’s great!

Now when you look at Abraham, you will find that he was constantly building altars for God. If you study from Genesis 12-13 you will find that in just those 2 chapters there were 4 altars that Abraham built just to worship God. What about Noah? The Bible says that Noah found favour with God. As soon as he came out of the ark – what was the first thing he did? He built an altar for God. What about David? We all know about David. He said in Psalm 57:7 he said, my heart is fixed within me – I will praise the Lord! What about Paul? He said, I will sing with understanding, I will sing with spirit – that’s in 1st Corinthians 14:15.

All those who found favour with God, Number 1 – they are worshippers, number 2 they are all generous givers – they know how to give generously. Solomon 2 Chronicles 1:6. Paul … Philippians 3:7-10, David 1 Chronicles 22:14-16 David said, I want to build a house for God. God said, “No, no, no… you were a man of war, your hands are full of blood – not you, not you! Your son will build the house!” He said. He said, “Fine, I will give him every kobo that he needs to build the house! If I can’t build it – my money will build it!” All the money needed to build the house – Bible scholars said he gave an additional 4 billion dollars for the maintenance of the house. Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!” – the interpreter could not think of such a big amount of money. …But this man was a generous giver……

What about Namaan, the leper that found favour with God? Look at the money he brought when he was coming to the man of God, even though the man of God didn’t take it from him. But if you read 2 Kings 5:5 you will find that those who normally find favour with God are generous givers. Psalm 23:5 David said, thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over…… So God looks for generous people because birds of the same feather flock together.

Not only are these people generous givers – they are also sacrificial givers – they are always willing to sacrifice. Abraham was willing to sacrifice Isaac. David said, I will not offer to God something that does not cost me something! The widow of Zarapheth, the only one that found favour with God was ready to give her last meal. It is one thing to be a generous giver – it is another to be a sacrificial giver. The sacrificial giving is the giving you give until you feel it in your body, in your pocket that you have given something. If you are a millionaire and you give N10, 000 it doesn’t mean anything to you. If you have ten cars and you give one to God – it doesn’t mean anything to you – 9 are still too many anyway. Sacrificial giving is the giving that you give and you will know, yes eh… something left me.

Why is it that God shows favour to sacrificial givers? Because He himself is a sacrificial giver. John 3:16 God said, For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son…. How many begotten sons has He? Only one! And He gave Him! It was a sacrificial giving – all those who found favour with God are worshippers, generous givers, sacrificial givers and finally – they are lovers of holiness. Ah.. – they love the holy life.

Abraham. God Himself said in Genesis 18:17-19, God said, “I know Abraham. Not only will he obey me he will teach his children after him. They too will follow after him.” What of Joseph? When he was cornered by the wife of Potiphar in Genesis 39:7-10 How can I do this thing and sin against God? I can’t do it. I belong to God. He’s a holy God. I also want to be holy! Or what about David, that man who fell into sin. He committed adultery, killed the husband, drew the woman to himself… How can you say that that man loves holiness? The moment they confronted him with his sin, he fell on his face and said, “Ehhh – I’m done for! I have sinned! God has finished with me!” You want to see the song that he sang read Psalm 51 and you will see the heart of somebody who has found favour with God. When he fell into sin, how he responded – he cried unto God. If only You can forgive me this once! If you can restore to me the joy of salvation!” He said, I will tell everybody about how good you are!” You can check your Bible very well – after David repented he never went back into sin. There wasn’t a second time!

You want favour with God? You must be a worshipper, you must be a generous giver, you must be a sacrificial giver and you must love holiness.

Now, I’m going to stop briefly now. I’m coming back later on to talk to you about how to abide in favour because I know some of us….

There are some people here the miracles are just flying over their heads…. why? Because they have not repented of their sins and I cannot continue just allow them to be here and continue to miss the blessing, without giving them an opportunity to surrender to Jesus, so if you are here tonight and you are not yet born again – you have not surrendered your life to Jesus or you think so but you are not sure that you have been saved and you want to say, Lord, I surrender, I too want to live a life of holiness, I want to please You. I want to do those things that will make You look at me and smile.

If you are here tonight and you want to surrender your life to Jesus I want you to come forward now because that is very important if you are ever going to find favour with God. I am going to count up to ten. All of you who want to give your life to Jesus begin to come now. Let us settle your case first before we continue tonight. 3 now… if you are coming from a far distance you better begin to move now. 3 now… you cannot find favour with God when you are still in sin… the Bible says we cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound. The Word of God says “God forbid… “. If you have not surrendered your life to Jesus, come now…..4….. If you think you have given your life to Jesus but you are still living in sin, you better come to Jesus now! 5 now… It is God who is calling you! He brought you here tonight so that you can find favour with Him. You can not find favour with Him if your sins are not forgiven! So if you want to surrender to Him come now. It is 6 now. By the time I get to 10 it will be too late. Right now the gates of mercy are open and you better begin to move fast because I know some of you are coming from a long distance but it is 7 now….. 7 now…! When you come to Jesus Christ there is a promise of God – that the Blood of Jesus will cleanse you from all your sins. But you have to come to Him first! For that Blood to be able to wash you clean…… It is 8 now!

The Lord Himself is the One who said, “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy-laden and I will give you rest……..” He’s asking you to come. If you refuse this invitation then you have yourself to blame. This is a night of Divine Favour. If you know you want to come you better come now. It is 9 now… The gates of mercy may soon close. Don’t say I did not call you. Don’t say I didn’t wait for you. Just say that you are the one who decided not to come. It is up to you not up to me. I have told you the truth. I have told you very simply. You want favour with God, you have to forsake your sin. You have to repent of your sin. God said in His Word, He that concealeth His sins shall not prosper but he who confesses and forsakes them shall obtain mercy. You want mercy of God? You want His favour? Now begin to cry to Him. Say, Father, I’ve come to you today I’ve come to surrender my life to you. I’ve made up my mind to forsake my evil ways. I will do your will from now on. Forgive me O Lord Forgive me O Lord! Cleanse me in Your Blood! Save my soul! O Lord! Open your mouth now and begin to pray.

Those of you who are coming you better hurry up now! Hurry up! The Lord is calling you now! Call on Him now and ask Him to save your soul! Ask Him to be merciful unto you! Call on the Almighty God and those of us who are already born again – please stretch your hands towards these people and pray for them that God will save their souls, that God will be merciful unto them; that God in His infinite mercy will wash away their sins, let’s pray for them brethren. Stretch your hands towards them and pray for them that the one who saved your soul will save their souls also. Pray for them! Pray for them! That the Almighty God, the Saviour of mankind will receive them now and be merciful to them and forgive them all their sins and save their souls and write their names in the book of Life; that they may be able to find favour with God.

If you are still coming – because some of you may be coming from a long distance – make sure you get here before we pray. Come now! The Lord is calling you – inviting you, asking you to come unto Him for rest, for health, for cleansing, for salvation – He’s asking you to come – that He may save your soul. And after He has saved your soul then the heavens will open over you. If you are coming hurry up – cry unto Him! Father! Save my soul!! Lord Save my soul!! Almighty God Save my soul!! Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

I’m about to pray for your salvation but if there is still anyone in the congregation and you know you are not yet saved and you are still sitting down there I pity you because only God knows what will happen between today and tomorrow. If you are there and you are still living in sin you better get here before I finish praying! If you don’t your blood is on your own head. Don’t say I did not invite you. If it is because of your friends that you refuse to come, how many of them will be by your side when it is time to go and face your maker? When you are walking through the valley of the shadow of death only Jesus can stand by you and He’s asking you to come and stand by Him now and you are refusing. That day you will be ask Him to accompany you – He will refuse. If you are not sure of your salvation – I’m going to count up to 5. If you don’t get here by the time I pray, I will know that you have made up your mind not to come.

1… 2…. 3… …4 …… God said this is the day of salvation. He said this is the accepted time………….

If you need Divine Favour begin to present … to God – physically, materially, maritally, mentally, spiritually, ministerially or just all-round… Begin to tell God now. Present your case to Him one by one, those things that you know might be standing against Divine Favour in your life, talk to God about them. Maybe you have not been worshipping Him enough – talk to Him about it. Maybe you have not been a generous giver – talk to Him about it. Go on talk to the Almighty God…. And spend about 5 minutes and of course it will be a shame if you at this time should doze because this is a serious time when you should be discussing your case with God. Those of you who want to give testimonies come to the altar now – very quickly…..

1000s have been healed but next month is going to be better because next month we are starting a new series entitled ‘Reversing the Irreversible’ and trust my Daddy that if He’s teaching us in something its because He wants to do that thing. He’s teaching us on Divine Favour tonight because some people are going home with Divine Favour (Amen!) And beginning from next month you will see the kind of miracles you have never believed possible at all as God begins to reverse the irreversible.

Now last month I had meetings with the various groups 1,2,3 and 4 but some people didn’t come last month because they thought last month was for children alone. However the details of what we discussed in the various groups have been written down and they are available with my secretary. So before you go this morning make sure you see them so you can collect the details of the meeting we held. Workers your meeting begins at 11 a.m. Saturday. We want to end early so you can be on your way before 5 p.m. If there’s anything I need to tell you, I will tell you later……

Now we want to pray and I want you to pray like someone who is determined to get answers. I told some people last month: when they were interviewing me in London – why do your people pray so hard? I said, “Because we expect an answer. We know God is going to answer.” How many of you believe God will answer you tonight? Ah- ah so we’re going to pray now and our first prayer is going to be a shout, a shout that is going to pull down every wall of Jericho, that is going to break open every barrier between us and Divine Favour. I want you to stand on your feet now and I want you to roar to God! Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Glory be to God! Thank You Father! Thank You! Glory be to God! Amen Now I will let that one be for God the Father. I want us to give one for God the Son. The preacher who preached before me first, said Grace came by Jesus Christ, the one who can bring Divine Favour to you. I want you to give Him a shout …… to God the Son! Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Thank You Jesus! Thank You! ……. (Amen!) Glory be to God! Amen

Then, as many of you know, this is the dispensation of the Holy Spirit, the regime of the Holy Spirit and if you want something to happen in a particular man’s regime, you want to male that person happy so I want your biggest ‘Alleluia’ to go to the Holy Spirit – to God the Holy Spirit – give Him a worthy Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Amen

All right, now with the same zeal you are going to pray all your prayers. Your first prayer will be, “Father, let me hear you say it… you have to say it as if you are the only one He must hear…. Anything that can stand between me and Divine Favour tonight crush it Lord! Go ahead talk to the Almighty God… Anything that could stand between me and Divine Favour tonight, crush it Lord, crush it Lord! Anything that could stand between me and Divine Favour tonight, crush it Lord, crush it Lord! Anything that could stand between me and Divine Favour tonight, destroy, destroy, destroy! Anything that could stand between me and Divine Favour tonight, crush it Lord, crush it Lord! Almighty God Anything that could stand between me and your favour tonight, destroy it, crush it, oh Father, crush it! Whatever can stand between me and Divine Favour tonight destroy Lord! Thank You Jesus! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Anything that could stand between me and Divine Favour tonight, crush it Lord, crush it Lord, crush it , crush it ! Lord God Almighty! crush it, crush it, Lord God Almighty! crush it – Anything that could stand between me and Divine Favour tonight, crush it Thank You Lord! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Your next prayer point – open your mouth and say, “Father, let Your face shine on me and all that are precious to me!” Go ahead talk to the Almighty! Father, let Your face shine upon me and all that are precious to me! let Your face shine upon me! Almighty God let Your face shine upon me and all that are precious to me! Let your face shine! Let your face shine! Let your face shine upon me! Let your face shine upon me! And all that are precious to me Father! Let your face shine upon me! Tonight Let your face shine upon me! And all that are precious to me Almighty God! Let your face shine upon me! Let your face shine upon mine! …. In Jesus’ mighty Name we pray! (Amen!)

Next prayer you will cry to God and say, Father, let me find favour with God (Amen!) Let me find favour with men. (Amen!) At home, in my place of work, every where I go let me find favour … let’s call on the Almighty God….. …

Please take all these prayers seriously because each one will be answered. Open your mouths and say, “Father, open the windows of heaven directly above my head and pour down favour. Lets talk to the Almighty God…. In Jesus’ mighty Name we pray! (Amen!)

Brethren those who find favour with God, they never lack anything. David found favour with God and he was able to say, the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want…… I want you to cry out tonight and say, “Father…… loud and clear: Father, tonight, let my cup run over… let’s cry to the Almighty God …In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now it is time to pray for those who are precious to you. By name! You will mention their names one by one and you will say, “I speak favour into your life, that wherever you go you will find favour with God, you will find favour with men, you will enjoy all round favour.” One by one – pick those w ho are precious to you and speak favour into their lives…… Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now it is your own turn. You know what you want, talk to God now. He’s here tonight to answer your prayers. Talk to God….. All-round favour Lord, in every facet of our lives Lord, all-round favour. Thank You Jesus! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Glory be to God! Let’s begin to bring our prayers to a close. Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now finally I want you to pray for your neighbour. The Bible says we must love our neighbour like ourselves. Join hands together now and speak favour into the lives of your brother and your sister and just say Father, this brother, this sister I’m holding, I speak favour into his life – favour physical, favour material, favour marital, favour mental, favour spiritual, favour ministerial – all-round favour – give to this your child, Go ahead talk to the Lord…. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

I want you to stretch your hands towards me and pray for Divine Favour for me before I pray for you. Go ahead pray ……. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now I want you to stretch forth your hands to heaven now. I want to pray for you for Divine Favour. This is one of the most important prayers that head ever been prayed for you. So I want you to say the Amen loud and clear…. In the mighty Name of Jesus (Amen!) In the powerful Name of Jesus (Amen!) In the gracious Name of Jesus (Amen!), Father, You gathered us together tonight because You want to show us favour – Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Father Thank You! Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Father, I pronounce favour into the lives of all these your children (Amen!) From now on, wherever they go, let them find favour with God (Amen!) Let them find favour with men. (Amen!) Let them find favour physically (Amen!) Let them find favour materially (Amen!), Let them find favour maritally (Amen!) Let them find favour mentally (Amen!) Let them find favour spiritually. (Amen!) Let them find favour ministerially (Amen!) Let them have all-round favour – open the windows of heaven over them. (Amen!) Pour Your favour upon them (Amen!) Let their cup overflow. (Amen!) Let it be well with them (Amen!) Let it be well with their families. (Amen!) Let it be well with those who are precious to them (Amen!) Let it be well with their churches. (Amen!) Let it be well with their families (Amen!) and their towns (Amen!) and their states (Amen!) and their countries Let it be well with them In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) If you believe that shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Shake hands with one or two people and say, “I receive that, I receive that and then you may be seated God bless you!

Now we will be ministering to those who need ministration. I am sure the hands of the ministers are now extra-special hands. Anyone they touch now will prosper….

Ministers if you have finished you can return to your seats. I can sense the power of God moving mightily on my right-hand side. Maybe because they are the closest to the band.

So tell your neighbour: “if you see me dozing give me a knock on the head…” Tell him I mean it, I mean it….

We want to talk about how to abide in the favour of God because it is one thing to find favour with it, it is an extremely important thing to abide in His favour. There was a king called King Saul, when he found favour with God, not only did God make him king, he also give him the power to prophesy. But he fell out of the favour of God and the one who used to be a king, who used to prophesy, died a madman. Not only did he die a mad man, he, and all his children died the same day! It’s a dangerous thing to fall out of favour with God…. I am confident that this morning now you are going home with divine favour (Amen!) but what do I do so that I will never fall out of favour with God? I want to tell you these things very, very briefly and there are seven of them. So you begin to write and write very quickly.

The first one is that you must walk before God and be perfect. Genesis 17:1 God said to Abraham, Abraham you have found favour with me. I have chosen you for blessing; I have chosen you for greatness – though you the whole earth will be blessed. Anybody who comes against you is going to find Me fighting him. Whoever blesses you, I will bless. Anyone who curses you I will curse. But walk thou before me and be thou perfect. God says you want to be in My favour? You want my face to continue to shine on you? Then walk in front of me, stay where My eyes can shine on you. Don’t go and hide behind me. Hiding behind me means you want to go into sin. You are hiding behind me means you want to do things you don’t want me to see – stay where I can see you. Let your behaviour be such that you have nothing to hide from God. Son, walk before me and be thou perfect – that’s the first one.

The second one that you must do to abide in His favour we got from David. He said in Psalm 34:1 – I want to read it to you because each is very important. He said, I will bless the Lord at all times – how many times? His praise shall continually be in my mouth .. What will be in your mouth? Anything that may be happening – say “Praise God Glory be to God!” Father, I praise You. Father, I love you – it doesn’t matter what may be happening. The Bible made it clear – in all things give thanks. I want you to know, anybody who has found favour with God every problem will become a testimony. So make sure you don’t offend God by misspeaking when you find yourself in trouble. Just know that you don’t know, you don’t understand how this thing is going to end. But I know that I have already found favour in g and I know all things will work together for good to them that love God. So Father before I see the testimony I want to say Thank You! I want to praise you. The only thing that will ever come out of my mouth is Your praise! Let somebody say, ‘Thank You Lord!’

So the first thing is – walk before Him and be perfect. The second one is praise Him continually. Let His praise continually be in your mouth. The third one we also got from David. In Psalm 89:1-4 I will just read – verse one will be enough for you to know what we are talking about: I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever, with my mouth will I make known, thy faithfulness to all generations…

Anyone who wants to abide in Divine Favour must constantly testify. Many of us do not testify. God You know one of the greatest blessings that I found is the story of the mad man of Gaddara is that as soon as God healed him he went about telling everybody. He went testifying.

So Number one. Walk before Him and be perfect. Number two; praise Him all the time. Number 3 constantly testify if His goodness. Number four is found in Proverbs 3:1-10. It says, in all your ways acknowledge Him… acknowledge Him… acknowledge Him…. Proverbs 3… let me show you where it is to be found… look at verse 6 there. All right. In all your ways acknowledge Him… Put Him first. Before you do anything – consult Him. Before you begin to execute a project consult Him! In all your ways acknowledge Him, obey Him, trust Him, honour Him in your substance. You want to remain in His favour? Before you do anything at all – just keep asking Him, asking Him. “I want to do the following – is it okay? I want to enter into a contract… is it all right? Acknowledge Him in all your ways and then honour Him with your substance. Always honour Him – honour Him, honour Him.

At times we give things to God that is an insult to Him. Some of us give the naira that no beggar will take from us – we drop it in the offering box. And God who knows how much you have knows when you begin to give Him an offering – He knows whether you are offering Him or dishonouring Him. I’ve told you the story of a millionaire who told a Pastor “Ah Pastor…. Please wait for me, I want to bring a special offering to God and the poor Pastor waited because he asked him to wait and he went home and came back with his flowing agbada and said: “Ah, I’ve brought my special offering to God!” and the Pastor opened it and found 1,000 naira……. If I had been on my knees for the one hour I had been waiting for you and called on God to provide, He would have provided at least 1 million. In all your ways acknowledge Him…… honour Him with your substance.

Number 5 In 2 Chronicles 7:5 we have a lesson from Solomon. By the way Solomon was one of those who found favour with God. As the first preacher told us tonight there was no way that boy could be King. He was the son of an adulterous mother with an adulterer father. And the father killed the husband of his mother. This is the product of sin. How can this terrible product of sin become king? But God decided to favour him. It has pleased him to show us favour tonight. You remain in that favour (Amen!)

And then when Solomon looked at what God had done for Him – that He made him king – he offered a 1,000 burnt offering to God and God said it looks as if the man knows the value of my favour. So God said what do you want me to give to you in addition? He asked for wisdom. He asked for understanding and as usual with God He gave more than the boy asked for. He gave him wisdom, gave him understanding, gave him long life, gave him peace. The boy said, if this is what 1,000 burnt offerings can do, He said, I think I will do more. If you read 2 Chronicles 7:5 – let’s look at it….. 2 Chronicles 7:5 you will see what the boy did to make sure that the favour of God will abide with him. He did something and King Solomon offered a sacrifice of 20 and two thousand oxen and one twenty thousand sheep. He said, God last time I gave you one thousand now I want to give you 22 thousand oxen and 120 thousand sheep. In other words – you want to remain in His favour – continue to give generously. Keep on giving to Him generously.

Number 6. You find it in Malachi 3. I know some of you will say, “O God, Why did He have to say that one! ” Malachi 3:8-11. The Almighty God asked a question there. He said, “Will a man rob God” How can somebody rob God and expect that God shall smile on him. You don’t have to be a prophet to know that if you rob somebody that person is not going to smile at you. But He went on to say that you should bring all the tithes into my house. He said that I will open the windows of heaven… You know if somebody wants to smile at you and the fellow is inside the house and you are outside and the doors are shut, the windows are shut and the fellow is smiling – will you see the smile? No, no, no, no… God says “Heaven is my throne, I’m seated in heaven. You are here on earth, I want to smile on you. Do one thing – bring all the tithes into my house. I will open the windows of heaven then my smile will be able to reach you…”

I was telling the Pastors yesterday – or is it the day before now. I said, somebody – one very good Bible scholar was explaining Malachi 3 and when talking about v.8-11, he said “When God said, Will a man rob God?, He was not angry that – look because you didn’t pay your tithe, I have a financial problem. ” The Bible made it clear – the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof – can somebody say Amen to that (Amen!) the Bible says, solver belongs to God, gold belongs to God. The Bible says, the cattle on a thousand hills belongs to God. God says if I am hungry I won’t ask you for food, I can take one of the cattle upon a thousand hills and eat. Every animal in the bush – they belong to me. All the silver, all the gold that I need – they are there. If I like I can make a fish a bank. I do not ask you to pay your tithes so that I can solve my financial problem.

So this Bible scholar says what God is actually saying id that when you fail to pay your tithes you rob God of the opportunity to bless you. He said, “I want to open the windows of heaven and pour on you a blessing that there will not be enough room to receive it. You won’t allow me because you did not pay your tithes. He said, I want to rebuke the deveourer for your sake. As soon as I see devourers coming I want to say to them, “Don’t go near Adeboye! ” He wants to rebuke devourers for you but you are robbing Him of an opportunity to do so by not paying your tithes. Some of you pay half, some of you pay a little bit, some of you have become so clever that you think God does not know the meaning of 10% anymore.

If you want to remain in His favour – it is my duty as your friend, as your father, as someone who wants it to be well with you pay your tithe completely

Number 7. Now what is number one? Walk before me and be perfect. Number two – praise Him continually Number three – testify of His goodness. Number four – in all your ways acknowledge Him, obey Him, trust Him, honour Hi, with your substance. Number 5. Remain even more generous than before. Number six – pay your tithe totally. Number seven – remain connected to somebody that you know has found favour with God. When you find somebody that you know had found favour with God, when you find somebody that you know – this man has found favour with God and you hook yourself to the fellow – the favour that is shining on him will shine on you. For example, when we talk about David’s mighty men – mighty men of David, and the Bible begins to talk about them as mighty men.. Who are these mighty men? Read about them in 1 Samuel 22:1-2 the people – they were vagabonds, debtors, discontented people, people whose life had come to almost an end but they went and joined themselves to David and David had found favour with God, the favour shone on them. So when David became a king, the vagabonds became generals. I’ve always told my partners – as I rise – you will rise, join yourself to somebody who has fond favour with God! Your favour will last forever.

How do I abide in His favour? I walk before Him and I’ll be perfect, His praise shall continually be in my mouth, I will constantly testify of His goodness, in all my ways I will acknowledge Him, I will obey Him I will trust Him, I will honour Him with my substance, I will give more generously than ever before, I will pay my tithes totally and I will remain connected to someone who has found favour with God.

You will bow your heads now and just offer a short prayer – Father the favour that I’ve found with you today – don’t let the devil steal it from me. Talk to the Almighty God for just a minute or two…. and it’s a very important prayer. Pray it with all your heart…And say, Lord – the favour that I’ve found with you today, don’t let me ever lose it, don’t let Satan ever take it from me! I’ve found favour with you now and I know that favour will follow me wherever I go. I know physically now I have found favour! Materially, I have found favour! Mentally, I have found favour! Maritally, I have found favour! Spiritually, I know I have found favour! Ministerially I have found favour! I know whatever I touch now will prosper! This favour that I’ve found Lord – don’t let me ever miss it! Don’t let the devil take that favour from me. Let Your favour in my life last forever! Let it last forever! Let it last forever! Let it last forever! Your favour in my life Lord, Let it last forever! Thank You my Father! And so shall it be in Jesus’ mighty Name! (Amen!). Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia” (Alleluia!) I didn’t hear your Alleluia! Well Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!”

Now our time is running fast and we are almost through but the Almighty God said that there are some people, some special cases that He said I should pray for tonight. I’m going to call those people forward very quickly. If it is not your case, please don’t come. But if it is your case then come forward.

The Lord said there is somebody here tonight, you have this abnormal hunger. Within minutes of finishing a meal, hunger comes again – not within one hour – within minutes! The Almighty God wants to take away that thing that is eating the food inside you. Because in spite of all this eating you are never satisfied. If you come very quickly now, I’m going to pray for you.

The second person that God says is here, says you have everything anybody could ask for but you have this unnatural urge to steal, that in fact you have reached a stage now, somebody has to follow you wherever you go so that when you take something that doesn’t belong to you that fellow will quickly pay for it. Now God wants to set you free tonight. If you come very quickly, come and join the people in front, I will pray with you.

Then the third fellow He said, I will pray for God says you find it so easy to make enemies – you just find it easy to make enemies. While other people are making friends you just keep on making enemies upon enemies. The Lord wants to put an end to that in your life.

Now if you come very quickly, I will pray for you. Those are the three special cases for tonight and I just want to thank God for the special cases because testimonies will follow. How many of you believe that the Almighty God is good, that He wants to set so many people free? Isn’t God good? Let’s just sing a song of praise while we wait for these people to come. Let’s sing a song of praise….

Pick out these people, let that favour destroy every yoke in their life. Please, Everybody pray for them – stretch out your hands towards these people and pray for them, that the favour of God that located their problems, that same favour will destroy every yoke in their lives tonight so that they will go back completely free – free completely – Intercede for them brethren, for just two minutes, open your mouth and intercede for your brothers and sisters – that the Almighty God whose favour has located their problems, the same favour will see to it that all the yokes in their lives are destroyed and they will go home completely free. Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Daddy, I want to bless Your Holy Name. Thank You for Divine Favour. Thank You that these people have found favour with You tonight. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Daddy, Your Word says, every plant my Father did not plant shall be rooted up. (Amen!) Whatever demons might be in some of these Your people that is causing them to be constantly hungry, Father, uproot tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Whatever demon might be in these people that in spite of everything they have they still feel like stealing – uproot it tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). Whatever demons might be in these people that is always attracting hatred to them, Father uproot tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) In Your mighty Name Lord, I decree freedom for these people! (Amen!) I decree deliverance for these people! (Amen!) From tonight all these problems that brought you forward, you will never see them again! (Amen!) You will never see them again! (Amen!) You will never see them again! (Amen!) So shall it be! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen Let’s give the Lord a big hand! Alleluia! Amen!

You can dance back to your place tonight.

I have some messages for some people who will be here tonight, which I have written down and I will read them to you. If it is your own you will pick it up.

God said there is someone here, the devil had been moving violently in your life. He asked e to tell you because His face is going to shine on you now the devil is going to be silenced permanently. (Amen!)

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, just one more Holy Ghost Service and your miracles will be complete.

And then the Lord said there is someone here tonight things have been so hot recently because God wants to bring the best out of you. (Amen!)

And then the Lord said I should tell – this one is for every one of us – from tonight change your language, from now on when they say, “How are you?” Your answer must be “I am divinely favoured.” How are you? I say How are you? How is business? How is your work? How is your education going? Glory be to God!

The last one is for me not for you…. Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia” (Alleluia!)

We are going to listen to some testimonies before we go and the people concerned, as soon as you hear your name you will come out quickly and as you come we will prepare to thank God for what He has done tonight because I believe God has blessed somebody here tonight and I know that fellow will want to say thank you. Where are the seats for those who are coming?

………

Let them come very quickly. When it is time we will listen to your testimony for 2, 2 minutes. In the mean time we want to thank the Almighty God for what He has done tonight. He has given us favour and we shall abide in that favour. (Amen!) The ushers will attend to us. ….

Thank You for health, for strength. Thank You for very soon Your children will be able to say, “my cup runneth over”. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) All these children who had given tonight I pray that they will never borrow again in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) That for the rest of their lives they will always have more than sufficient in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). So shall it be In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen! Now let everybody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

…….

REVERSING IRREVERSIBLE – 1

5th of June, 2002

Blessed be Your Holy Name! Thank You! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Lord! Alleluia! Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name! … Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Alleluia! Glory be to God! In Jesus’ mighty Name we worship! (Amen!)

And Elijah said to Ahab, “Rise, eat, for there is a sound of abundance of rain.” (Amen!) The Lord is saying to someone here: Rise, eat, for there is a sound of abundance of rain! (Amen!)

Thank You Father! We bless Your Name because our joy is just about to start (Amen!) We give You glory, we give You honour, we give You adoration. You are the greatest, You are the highest, You are the oldest, You are the wisest, You are the richest, You are the most glorious. Glory be to Your Holy Name, Father! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Accept our worship in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Tonight Father, do the impossible (Amen!) Reverse the irreversible! (Amen!) Let our joy overflow (Amen!) and take all the glory (Amen!) and give us all the blessings (Amen!) In Jesus’ mighty Name we have worshipped! (Amen!) Amen! Let somebody shout Alleluia!

I know there is someone here tonight that your joy has just started. If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Shake hands with 2 or 3 people. Tell them: “You will celebrate with me soon! You will celebrate with me soon!” If you believe that shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) God bless you! You may be seated!

We thank God for the various choirs that have rendered tonight. We thank God that things are getting better. Let’s encourage them by giving the Lord a big round of applause. We thank God for the first message that was wonderful, that was rich. Glory be to God! Then of course we thank God for our Mummy who has been constantly leading us in prayer for Nigeria. You know as she taught us who are the people of God and who are those who can bear His Name certain things came to my spirit – one of the first people that she said can bear the Name of Jesus Christ – are His Bride, the Church. So the Church could be called Mrs. Jesus! So you are looking at Mrs. Jesus and the other people that could bear His Name are His children. So in case you don’t know my full name I’ll tell you today. I am Enoch Adejare Adeboye Jesus! If Jesus is your surname let me hear you shout Alleluia!

(Alleluia!)

Tonight is a very special night. It’s a very special night because June is a special month for Nigerians. It’s a month of new beginnings for our nation. It’s a month of new beginnings for me and tonight we are starting a stage which I am confident is going to be the greatest we have had so far because the very title itself is special – it is entitled

‘Reverse the irreversible!’ Reverse the irreversible!’ Jeremiah 32:26-27 Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying, Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? There are certain words and phrases found in the dictionary of men that are not found in the dictionary of God. Certain words, certain sentences, certain phrases that men know how to use but you will not find them in the dictionary of God. Such words as ‘impossible’, ‘too late’ ‘cannot be’ ‘irreversible’……. Words like this are found in the dictionary of men but they are not in the dictionary of God. In Luke 1:37 it said because for God nothing shall be impossible. And in Matthew 19:26 Jesus Christ said, With men are these things impossible but with God all things are possible

.

Now the reason why we have certain words in our dictionaries which are not in the dictionaries of God is because men are dust

Genesis 3:19. God said to Adam: for dust thou art and to dust thou shalt return. So it is easy to understand why dust will say this thing is too hard and these things are impossible or these things are irreversible. Isaiah 40:6-8 tells us that the best of men are just like flowers of the field. It says, the voice said ‘Cry!” and he said, “What shall I cry? All flesh is grass and all the goodliness thereof is like the flowers of the field. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth because the Spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it. Surely the people is grass. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth but the Word of God shall stand – the best of men, the most powerful of men is like ordinary flower of the field so it can fade and fall off but God is a spirit: John 4:23 God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. And because He is spirit because He’s not dust, because He’s not the flower of the field He therefore does not die. He doesn’t drop to the ground like the flower of the field. The Bible says in Psalm 90:2 He says, from everlasting to everlasting thou art God

. Man has a beginning and therefore they must have an end but God has no beginning and therefore He has no end.

The best of men in the Bible is compared to a worm.

Job 25:6 called man a worm. And if you look at Isaiah 41:14 the Bible calls Jacob a worm and Jacob was supposed to be a prince with God but He calls him a worm. So while man is compared to a worm our God is compared to a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:24, it said: But our God is a consuming fire. While man is compared to an ordinary flower, the Bible calls Him someone who dwells in light that no one can approach unto. That’s in 1 Timothy 6:16 And while man is compared to the dust of the ground because he is from the dust, Isaiah 66:1 God says: Heaven is my throne and the earth is my footstool

. If the earth is under His feet, surely I’m sure, all your problems are under His feet. (Amen!) We serve a God that is so great, so mighty, so powerful, so glorious, so wise that He has no limits and Because He is limitless that is why He can Reverse the irreversible!

That is why I’m sure, that all those problems in your life that people had considered – this one is too far gone to be solved – they will be solved tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

In this series what we really want to do is to want to follow the pattern of our Jesus Christ. The Bible said wherever He went, He was preaching, He was teaching and He was healing the sick. We want you to take your notebook, take your pen and take good notes. This series is a series which is supposed to affect your life till you see Jesus Christ. This is something you are supposed to refer back to any time you come across a problem and say no, no, no, I am dealing with a God who can reverse the irreversible!

Why are we so sure that our God can Reverse the irreversible? The first reason why we know He can reverse the irreversible! It is because His Name is Alpha.

Revelation 1:8. He said: I am the Alpha… The Alpha means the beginning of beginnings. John 1:1. He said: In the beginning was the Word

. Because He is the Beginning of Beginnings; because everything started in His presence; that’s why He can go into the past, change things in the past – because the present is the baby of the past. Whatever is happening today is because of something that happened yesterday. You are a lawyer today because you went to Law School yesterday. You are a messenger today because you refused to go to school when you should yesterday, You are suffering today because of something you did yesterday. Today is the result of the decisions you took yesterday. Today is the result of certain actions you took yesterday. And now yesterday is gone. You cannot go back to yesterday. There is no way you can go back to last year but there is somebody who can go back several years before; who can change things yesterday, who can rearrange things yesterday; who can put what was number one yesterday to number 10, who can turn things upside down so that today can become different.

That’s why the Bible says in

2 Corinthians 5:17 if any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things are passed away

….. How many things become new? How many things become new? All How many things are going to become new for you today? All things! Let me hear you shout Alleluia!

(Alleluia!)

When you read

2 Corinthians 7:2 Paul said, I wronged no man. I wronged no man? The first time I read that passage, I said – you lie! At least I have it on the authority of the Word of God that ion the day they were killing Stephen, you were the Chairman. So if you say you wronged no man, you lie. But the Almighty God explained it to me quickly. I can go to the past and change things round so that the man who was here when they were killing Stephen, will not be the man that is now called the Apostle Paul. There’s somebody here tonight, God is going to go into your past, all the murders you have committed, all the abortions you have committed, all the lies you have told and He’ll wipe them away (Amen!) so that anybody reading your record will not find that thing that you have done there again. (Amen!) If you are the one God is talking about Let me hear you shout Alleluia!

(Alleluia!)

Psalm 90:2:

He said, Before the mountains were brought forth You are God

. He can go back. He can go into your history. He can go to that time when the mountain was just beginning to form, that mountain of problem in your life and say, “Mountain, you don’t belong here. Mountain you belong to somebody else!” That is why I’m sure that miraculously, in a way that will be as if you are dreaming, the mountains in your life will suddenly disappear. (Amen!)

I’m sure some of you probably remember when we had the Holy Ghost Service at National Stadium and the Word of God came that there was a man here who had a goitre and that the goitre had disappeared. There was a sister sitting next to the man. One moment the woman was looking at us on the stage and heard that word of knowledge and turned to look at the man and the goitre had disappeared! Why? Because God went into the past, saw when the goitre was developing and said: No, no, no, no goitre, not on the neck of this man! God is saying to somebody here today, that sickness in your body, that problem in your brain, that problem in your family, right from where it started, it shall be uprooted in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!).

We have a God who can go back to the day they were naming you, to your day of christening because, like I told you before, many, many problems we have today are connected to the names we bear so when you say your name is ‘Esugbayie’, if Satan has received this one then you cannot blame the devil for tormenting the one he has received. But you have very little you can do because when they were naming you, you were not even aware they were naming you. But there’s somebody who can go back to that day when they were giving you that evil name….

Oh Thank You my Father! Glory be to God!

The Lord said there’s somebody here, on the day they were naming you, as is the custom in your place, they were dropping money in a bowl of water and a witch came and dropped a coin into the bowl of water and said, without anybody paying attention, that every money you made you will just see it dropping into water. The Lord asked me to tell you right now, He has gone back to your day of christening. He has taken out the coin; right now He has returned the coin to the witch. Let somebody shout Alleluia!

(Alleluia!)

We are serving a God who can go to your past, go to your christening day and change things there, In

Genesis 17:5-6

God said to Abraham with your name as Abram it means you’re going to die barren – but I am changing your name to Abraham – I go back to your day of christening and I add something to the name they had given you and instead of you dying barren, you become the father of many nations.

All of you that have been sentenced to poverty from the day of your birth, those of you that have been sentenced to suffering from your day of birth, today is a new beginning. (Amen!) I say, today is a new beginning (Amen!) You know the story in

1 Chronicles4: 9-10

. It’s the name of a man called Jabez. His name was “child of sorrow”. Each time they called him they said, “Sorrow” cone here. Sorrow go there. Sorrow come and eat” One day he woke up: God why must my name be “Sorrow”? Why is it that wherever I turn I only see sorrow? God change things for me!” And God answered him. God is going to answer somebody here today.

(Amen!)

He changed Sarai to Sarah. He changed Jacob to Israel. He can go back to your day of christening and change things completely. But he can go back even further. Remember His Name is Alpha! The beginning of beginnings. If you check

Galatians 1:15-16

Paul said God went into my mother’s womb and separated me unto Himself. He knew that the way I was going, I was going to end up in Hell. So He went into my past. He went into my mother’s womb before I was born and changed things around. Today, many of you are suffering because we inherited one sickness of the other. There was a problem in our parents that became part and parcel of us but my God is going back now (Amen!) is going into your mother’s womb and is saying that sickness that come into you through your mother is not going to come into you. (Amen!)

Ask the doctor. They will tell you that within 72 hours of conception – 3 days and 3 nights of conception everything a child is going to be is already settled; how tall, how fat, black or brown everything is settled in 72 hours. My God can go to those 72 hours. If you remember the testimony of a brother who was sitting in the crowd in the auditorium while the programme was on and certain miracles were happening around the altar and he wanted to see – he was very short and whenever … O God how I wish I were taller!” And God heard and told us and said, “Tell him – I have heard what you said and I’ve increased your height. If you check your trouser and it is shorter – nothing wrong with your trouser – it is you who have grown. Glory be to God forever more. And God did exactly that. How can that ever be? Scientifically, it is impossible. Humanly it is impossible for somebody to grow, to grow taller within seconds can only happen if God goes to the womb of the mother, to the first 3 days of conception and changes everything. The everything you don’t want in your body, the Almighty God will go to your mother’s womb and it doesn’t matter even if your mother has been dead for years – He will go to that beginning of beginnings and change things completely for you!

(Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s somebody here, your eyes are constantly dripping water. The doctors have tried, they’ve done their best. Daddy says the problem started in your other’s womb and He has gone there now and put things right, right now!

(Amen!)

I’m sure you will remember the story of a woman, the wife if a medical doctor who had had four daughters and was pregnant again and they’ve done the scan and they’ve found that it is another girl. She came to us – Pastor, you must help me. The relatives of my husband have already said if I ever have another girl, I will leave their family! We got 4 girls. I’m pregnant now. They’ve declared it is another girl. I’m eight months pregnant. I want you to pray that the girl will become a boy! I said – the little science I know – thank God for those who don’t know any science – they find it easier to believe her. Blessed are those who know nothing for their faith shall be strong. (Amen!)

From the little science that I know, woman you are 8 months too late before you came for prayer! She said, You are the one who taught us that with God nothing shall be impossible. Call on that God and let Him Reverse the irreversible!” And because she wouldn’t go out of my office unless I prayed and all I had to do was pray, it’s left to God to answer ….” Father, change that girl to a boy in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)” A month later a baby boy was born. Today every irreversible in your life shall be reversed in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) But you heard the testimony of another of my daughters who became pregnant – 3 months pregnant and heard the testimony I’ve just shared and came: Daddy, I’m pregnant, 3 months pregnant – I said: “Ahh! Congratulations! She said, “That’s not why I am here. Why I’m here is, I want it to be a girl.” “Ah! I thought everybody is looking for a boy!” She said, ‘No, no, no, I’m looking for a girl.” 3 months late! “Oh, no, no, no, I heard the testimony and I know God is no respecter of persons. Just agree with me that it will be a girl.” 6 months later a baby girl was born.

What ever it is you want from God – if He has to go to your mother’s womb to change things around. He will do so in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) But He can go beyond that one. He can go far, far, far beyond your mother’s womb. He can go to that period before your father met your mother. In

Jeremiah 1:4-5 the Bible says, Before I formed thee in the body I knew thee

: before I formed you. Before your father met your mother. Before they slept together that night I had a design of you. You can go back to God tonight and say Daddy, go back to my original design and change things over! Change things over! I have been tail long enough I want to become head. I thought somebody would say, ‘Amen!’ to that one… I have been trampled under feet for too long – whatever was in my original design that has caused me 2 become something that they are trampling upon – change the design… And He will do so in Jesus’ Name!

(Amen!)

I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about the story of Ephraim and Manasseh, 2 sons of Joseph. Manasseh was the first-born and Ephraim was the second-born and whenever you want to bless people In those days, the fellow, you put your right hand on his head is going to get double portion of blessing and the first-born is usually the one to get the double portion. Joseph brought his 2 sons. Placed then before Jacob, his father so that the right hand can land on the head of Manasseh and the left hand on the head of Ephraim but Jacob crossed his hands and put his right hand on the head of Ephraim and the left hand on the head of Manasseh. Joseph said “No, Daddy, no, no, no that’s not the way it should be done!” The father said, ” I know what I’m doing” I am fulfilling the path, the plan already laid down by God.” God had already decided that this young boy is going to be bigger than his brother. I am just acting out what God has already done. So he blessed the two of them and within a short time the young boy became ten times richer than his brother. I mean, so richer than the brother that when you talk about 1,ooo for Manasseh you talk about 10,000 for Ephraim. Why should God promote the younger above the elder? Who are you to query God? He made you. He could have made you a dog. What could you say? If He made you a dog you could still praise Him by barking. If He made you a dove you could still praise Him by singing. I’m telling you, if He made you a snake you could still praise Him by biting somebody until they cut off your head of course. But thank God He made you a man. He made you in the same image. Let me hear you shout Alleluia!

(Alleluia!)

And then Ephraim because of his wealth forgot God and God said: Ephraim, I’m the One who blessed you… blessing that belongs to your brother. Come back to me! Ephraim said: No – no, mind your business, I’m enjoying myself. God said: that’s all right. I can go back and change things around. By the time you read

Hosea 5:9

God said: Ephraim, you shall be desolate. I decided to make you prosperous, you refused to come to my side. You forgot who I am. I will go back to the beginning and change things around. Ephraim became a desolation.

And what about Manasseh? Manasseh that was reduced to number two instead of number one? When Ephraim misbehaved, God went back to the beginning and said: Manasseh, because you are serving Me, because you stayed close to Me, I’m going to promote you. Oh, you need to read

Revelation 7:4-8

and you will make a discovery that the Almighty God can promote a son above his father. He picked up Manasseh and promoted him above Joseph. As for Ephraim his name is not even heard again.

God can go back. God can go back to your very, very beginning and say, “All right. I decided once that you would suffer but because you came tonight I change my mind. (Amen!) From now on whatever you touch will prosper. (Amen!) From now on I pick you up from where you are and promote you above those who are already ahead of you. (Amen!) Ah, whom is God talking to here tonight? Let me hear you put your hands together for Almighty God. Thank You Jesus!

He can Reverse the irreversible! Because He’s Alpha but He can also Reverse the irreversible! Because His Name is Omega. Now what does Omega mean? That’s the end of all endings. Because He’s the end of everything that is going to end He can go into your future. As far as you are concerned – all you know now is today – you don’t even know what is coming in the next one hour. All I know is that joy coming your way – (Amen!) But He can go into your future and change things there. He can go into your tomorrow and say: Mmm, this fellow is supposed to be a debtor by the end of June. Let me go to the future and arrange things there so that by the time he arrives at the end of June the debtor will be a millionaire. (Amen!) He can go in to your future and change things around.

2 Kings 20:1-6

tells the story of a man that God Himself, God – not anybody else – God Himself sent a messenger to this man and said: “Put your house in order because you are going to die” Now when God speaks it is done. The moment He says, ” This man, you are going to die.” – that man is dead! When He said, put your house in order that’s another way of saying get somebody to begin to dig your grave. But the man said, “Lord, I don’t want to go yet. I want to praise You a little more.” And God said: That’s a good idea – let me go to the future, the grave that they should dig for you, I cover it up. (Amen!) All those who will do the digging they are going to be idle for another 15 years. He went into the future and rearranged things there. Oh there is someone here tonight, the devil has planned it that very soon people will gather in your house to mourn but the Almighty God is telling you no, no, no, no, – they will come to celebrate with you.

(Amen!)

When the man of God told the king, king when God told me to tell you, you are going to die but now He’s asked me to tell you – I’ve added 15 more years to your life, the King said: How shall I know that this thing will be so? After all you are His prophet.

Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Well, I just have to obey Him. The Lord says all those who are under suspension in the Redeemed…. (Alleluia!) Put your hands together for the Lord! Okay, so He says the suspension is over Thank You Lord! All right…

Now the King said….. Praise the Lord! … So the King said to the prophet: How shall I know that this thing shall be so that 15 years had been added to my life? And the man of God said: What do you want as a sign? Do you want me to ask the sun to move forward fast? Or you want me to ask the sun to go back? And the King said: Asking the sun to go forward that’s an easy thing, but when the sun has gone forward – to bring it back in reversing the irreversible. Do that for me and I will know the Almighty God said: All right, sun go back. I am here to tell somebody today that some of you that people are already getting ready to bury, your life is just beginning. (Amen!) I say your life is just beginning.

(Amen!)

I am sure you remember the testimony of a woman that came all the way from America to the Holy Ghost Service in London and the Word of God came. She was old, she was barren, she had ceased to be after the manner of women and the Word of God just came that there’s a woman here that God has removed 10 years from her life and she said: “Amen! That must be me!” And turned to the little sisters who brought her: Don’t call me Aunty anymore. I’m now ‘Sissy’! And some minutes later, the Word of God came again, that fellow whose years had been reduced by 10, this time next year you’ll come with a baby. She said: O God, You saw me today! Tell somebody: God is going to see me here today! God is going to see me here today! And of course a year later she came with her baby.

All of us who have been written off – the God who can reverse the irreversible will go into your future and say: Yes, I know you are supposed to die childless but I’m changing things round. On the day you are to be buried there’ll be at least four of your own children there. (Amen!) If you receive that Let me hear you shout Alleluia!

(Alleluia!)

When you read Mark 5:1-20…

Thank You Daddy! The Lord said there’s somebody here, the last time you menstruated was 10 years ago. He asked me to tell you – as soon as we finish this service – go and get your pads! (Amen!) Things are going to get ready again! (Amen!) That is a big one! Thank You Daddy! Thank You Daddy!

Mark 5:1-20

It talks about the story of a man that you know very well. You’ve referred to him before. Among madmen he was a mad man and I know what I’m talking about – we’ve had experiences here on this camp before. Years ago there was a man who was mad – they brought him in because there were plenty of people who could look after him and in those days we could still allow them to stay in camp and we started praying for him and after about 7 days he was almost normal. He wasn’t completely okay yet but he was on the way. And then they brought another man who was still real wild and because there’s only one room for both of them we put the second man. And the first man ran out and said: “Look at these people oh! They brought a mad man to come and stay with me!”

So among mad men there are mad men. This one – Mark 5 was a madman among madmen. It was already settled that he would die mad. In fact, he himself was already living in the graveyard. He was just waiting for himself to just die. Nobody would just bother bringing him to the graveyard but he did something strange. He saw Jesus coming. He fell at His feet, worshipped Him. In other words he’s saying: You are my Maker. You can do and undo. I know that it is settled that I’m to die mad but mad people can’t worship you. Let me be one of your worshippers. And the l said: That’s a good idea. Let me go to your future – instead of dying mad become an evangelist and the Almighty God within a minute changed things over. The man that was supposed to be mad talked so much about Jesus Christ that the next time Jesus came back to that city a multitude was waiting for Him. I know there’s someone here, the enemy has settled your future but my God will go into the future (Amen!) and change things completely.

(Amen!)

You know

Luke 8:1-3

. It was the story of a witch, who was a witch among witches. Mary Magdalene – that’s the name. She was supposed to roast in hell. Only God knows how many people’s children she had killed. Only God knows how many people’s blood she has sucked. Oh, but thank God – the Almighty God saw her and looked at her and said: Why should this one go to hell? I can change her future. I can turn her to my treasurer. He drove out the demons in her and everything she touched after that one became money. And everywhere Jesus went, she was going, supplying everything Jesus needed.

I know there is someone here today, there is no way you can look at it yourself unless you are somebody that’s to be cracking jokes with you – there’s no way you can ever own a car. You know it yourself. But I have good news for you, very soon, because my Father is going to your future and He’s going to rearrange things, (Amen!) you will be building churches for Jesus Christ!

(Amen!)

I know a man who was the secretary of 6 different secret societies. I mean, he was not just an ordinary member – he was their secretary. But Jesus went into his future and changed things round. And the man who would have died an associate of the devil, became an evangelist for Jesus Christ. The future of somebody’s going to change for the better tonight in Jesus’ Name!

(Amen!)

If you read

Romans 11:16-18

God said He can take a branch form a wild olive tree and graft it into a good olive tree and as a result of the grafting the branch that was supposed to produce bitter fruit will produce very good fruit by grafting. Tonight God is going to graft somebody into the life of Jesus. (Amen!) So that the one whose future is supposed to end in bitterness, the future will end in sweetness. (Amen!) I know God is talking to me

Consider the story of Esther. I don’t know of you have studied the story of Esther very well. Esther 2. You can read it from verse 5-18

Esther 2:5-18

. As soon as Esther was born, the father died, the mother died. I mean this girl had known sorrow all the days of her life! Then some soldiers came and raided her city and took her into slavery. Fatherless, motherless, now a slave and she was to die a slave. Bur my Father went into her future and said: No, You are not going to die a slave. You are going to die a queen. And for God to make that to happen He went into the past and grabbed a woman called Vashti and said: You, disobey your husband. Get out of the way so that I can put somebody else in your place. Oh how great is our God. The girl who was to die a slave, because somebody disobeyed her husband was thrown out of the way, And the slave became a queen.

I was talking to those at the headquarters. Last Monday we were having digging deep on Divine Champions and I told them of the story, how God can grab somebody that you don’t consider will become anything, overnight and turn him to somebody. And I gave them an example from Nigeria here. I talked of a man who was just an ordinary colonel in the army or lieutenant colonel or something. He thought he was going to be a soldier all his life. But certain things happened – here and there, here and there… and all of a sudden he young soldier became Head of State. And when he became Head of State he wasn’t married so they said unto him. Now that you are Head of State you must marry. So he said, Well I have somebody that I used to talk to. She’s a nurse somewhere. So they said, well if that’s the one you want then that’s the one we’ll go and get for you! So they came and they said, Sister nurse, you are going to be First Lady. It happened so fast that this lady didn’t know how to behave as a First Lady. Now I’m telling you the truth. The old ones here will know who I’m talking about. They had to send her to London for three months to learn how to behave as a queen. Mmm, you don’t open the door of the car for yourself – you are First Lady….. Let somebody else open it for you. Sudden promotion is coming for somebody here today. (Amen!) I mean promotion so sudden that God will have to teach you how to behave after He has done it. (Amen!) Tell the fellow next to you: I told you today is my day! I said today is my day!

When you read Mark 3:1-5…

By the way God said there is somebody whose nose had always been bleeding and it was still bleeding tonight but it is dry now and it won’t bleed again.

(Amen!)

Mark 3:1-5… Mark 3:1-5 Now let me say one thing before I continue. Don’t wait till we finish the sermon today before you receive your miracle please, Because this is a new beginning – this is new Holy Ghost Service! It’s different now… it’s different now….. It’s different from now on…… (Amen!) I mean, it is different from now on. (Amen!) Don’t wait till we pray! Don’t wait till they lay hands on you. As the message is going on keep checking your bodies. If you find something moving you to stand or to run or to jump, just go ahead – just obey God because I can feel the power of God sweeping this place like a hurricane! (Amen!) O Thank You my Father!

Mark 3:1-5.

The Bible said Jesus went into a particular temple and saw a man there with a withered hand. Now when they say the hand is withered it means that the hand is dead and there is no way that hand can come back alive. That’s the meaning of withered and that man was supposed to die with only one hand effective. Ah! But my Daddy saw it and said: Ahh! one hand is dead and you are managing with one? And as soon as He did, Glory to God, the hand that was withered became as before! Exercise your faith tonight and the Almighty God is going to surprise you.

(Amen!)

There are some people – your future is already withered, financially everything is withered – but people will be owing you soon. (Amen!) Oh I know what I ‘m talking! I’m talking from experience. People say, why do you get excited about God? Because I have found out that it is not theory – it is practical. I’ve read about Him in the Bible, but I’ve seen him in action – face to face. I’ve seen Him in action that’s why I can stand boldly before the whole world and say my God can Reverse the irreversible!

(Amen!)

One of my daughters – maybe she’s here tonight – a widow, her husband died, left her with 17 mouths to feed and a whole pile of debt – I mean a whole pile of debt and the biggest of the debt was a bank that they owed in London. And if you owe them in London you know you are a real debtor. And one day came like this in on of our conventions and God spoke and said ‘ there is someone here, heavily in debt. God said, I will give you 3 financial breakthroughs – the first one is for me, the second one we will divide 50-50, the 3rd one will settle the problem permanently. And she said, “Ah Lord! That must be me!

Within one week the first breakthrough came – she got a money so big that I mean, it must have shaken her, of course it was nothing near the debt she was owing. So she came and brought the money to me. The first one has come sir! This is for God! I said, oh, oh I know you are a widow feeding 17 mouths. God said there is someone here, He didn’t mention your name. Please, no, no, no, I can’t take this money. She said, What? You want to block my other miracles? No, no, no, keep this one till the other two have come. No that is not what God said! He said the first one belongs to Him. This is God’s own. I was compelled to take the money. I’m telling you the truth. I took the money but I made sure we didn’t spend it.

Soon the second one came and she ran, rejoicing: the second one has come – 50% for God, 50% for me! It was easier for me to take the second than the first. And then the third one came – the bank in London wrote and said: We have checked our records and discovered you are not owing us – we are owing you! (Amen!) Now listen to me carefully. They said they made a mistake in London – in the Bank of London! Who is deceiving who? They did not make a mistake but my Father went into the records, He changed everything! Yes. He changed everything! I’m telling you – there’s somebody here today – by the end of this month you are going to have a good testimony (Amen!) If you are the one Let me hear you shout Alleluia!

(Alleluia!)

And when you read

John 9:1-7

You read the story there of a man who was born blind. He’s been blind for 40 years. He was to die in darkness. He’s been living in darkness; he’s going to die in darkness! There was nothing any doctor could do for them. I mean, it wasn’t that his eyes were fading. It was that the eyes were not seeing at all. But then Jesus saw him. He came across him. His day came!

You know, one of my pastors said something when I was in Kano last month and he was going to introduce me. And the first statement he made really shook me. He said, the most dangerous man on earth is the man whose time has come. And I said – that is true! When your time comes anybody who stands in your way he’s gong to become a stepping stone to testimony.

(Amen!)

Tell your neighbour: You may not know it but my time has come. You better not stand in my way!. O Glory be to God! Give the Lord a big hand!

This man had been in darkness for forty years but his day came. I mean, his day came! And then people began to talk about him. Who sinned? Is it this man? Or his parents? That he was born blind? He became a theological discussion! But his day had come! It doesn’t matter what anybody may be saying about you. Let witches say what they like! Let wizards say what they like! Let fake prophets prophesy what they like! Because your day has come you are going to laugh last! (Amen!) I say you are going to laugh last! (Amen!) If you believe that let me hear you shout Alleluia!

(Alleluia!)

And God did something interesting there. Jesus Christ said, it is not a question of whether he sinned or the parents sinned, I just want to use him as a design – like my brother said – just to show you that I can go into the past to influence the present. He said, You see, this man, when I was forming him from the dust of the earth, he was in such a hurry to get to the world so he didn’t wait for eyes! That’s why he was born blind! And now I can complete the work. Let me go to the past, get some mud – put it where eyes are supposed to be and let me complete the work that I started. The work that God started in your life, He will complete today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) So He spat on the ground, made some mud, put it where eyes are supposed to be and told the man to go and wash. And he washed and he came seeing! The man who was supposed to die in darkness suddenly said – whether he was a sinner or not, I don’t know – one thing I know, whereas I was blind, now I see! Ho! Somebody’s going to see a glorious future

(Amen!)

I’ve told you the story before of one of our pastors. He was a soap-maker and then one Saturday because he wouldn’t work on Sunday, he decided to prepare against Monday while everybody had gone. So he was mixing some chemicals. Suddenly he fell and a bowl of acid fell on his face! There was nobody around. He was in great pain. He cried – nobody to hear and the acid continued to eat his face. And to eat his eyes. Finally, somebody was passing by and saw the door of the factory open and said, this man forgot to lock his factory. So he went in to see and saw the man on the ground, groaning in pain. So he picked him up – rushed him to the hospital. The doctor took him. They bathed his face and they asked him some questions. Are you married? He said yes. You have children? Yes How old are the children? You have one that is fairly old? He said yes, ah why are you asking these questions? They said because your eyes are gone. You will never see again. And he said, “Oh that’s the doctor’s report. Take me to the camp. Let me go and hear Jesus’ report. Glory be to God forevermore!

I’m telling you, when I saw him, even my faith shook. With God all things are possible – Father there’s nothing you cannot do! Heal the eyes of your … give him brand new eyes…. I’m talking of a God who will meet you at the level of your faith. Today the man that they said would never see again still reads the Bible without glasses! Now I know you don’t believe me so I’m going to call him to come forward – come, come, come, come…. Let somebody join him in shouting Alleluia! (Alleluia!). How long ago was that? I’ve forgotten the year. 1987! You can still read your Bible without glasses? Proverbs 2:1

My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: ….

. All right that’s enough! This is the man that they said, 15 years ago, will never see again – is still reading the Bible without glasses. Let somebody shout Alleluia!

(Alleluia!)

Who is going to be the next fellow to share his testimony? Let me see you put your hands together for the Lord Jesus Christ Alleluia!

And then when you read

Acts 3:1-8

it tells you the story of a man who was born lame. He was supposed to lead the rest of his life on one spot. Wherever they put him that’s where you will meet him Oh. Thank You Father!

Daddy said, I should just hurry up because He wants to do certain things. (Amen!) I think we can continue the teaching next time… let Him do whatever He wants to do! Let’s stand on our feet right now – let’s call on the Almighty God –

You may never get another day like this. So I’m going to count up to ten. If you are not here by 10, I will know you have made up your mind, like Ephraim, to say no to God! 1… 2… 3…

Pray for these people! Pray! Open your mouth and pray! Cry – this is the greatest of all miracles – the miracle of salvation! Cry for their salvation! Cry that God will have mercy on them; that God will forgive all their sins and cleanse them in His Blood; write their names in the Book of Life! Let’s pray for them brethren!

Amen Now those in front Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

On a night like this you don’t want to miss anything, but for five minutes I want you to go back yourself – go back into your history, at least whatever you can remember – your parents were idol worshippers, charms that you had used, all kinds of incision that they had made on you…

Go back and enumerate them one by one to the Almighty God. Say, ”

Tonight Father, change this one, cancel this one, remove this one…. ” Just do that one for few minutes as we wait for our brothers. Talk to the Almighty God. Daddy, go to my past! Forgive my parents that were Ifa worshippers. Everything that I have done wrong, every covenant entered into on my behalf; every curse that is upon the family because of what they have done – Daddy change this one! Daddy change this one! Daddy change this one!. There was a time I did this Father, change this one.. There were times I washed with soap that I shouldn’t have washed with – change that one! There was a time I visited a herbalist Father change that one, change that from my record! ” Go to your past and tell the Almighty God all these thing that you want changed so that your present can become glorious – talk to Him for a few minutes. Discuss all these things in detail. Discuss. Tell the Almighty God, Father I want this one removed from the record of my family. You are the Alpha, go right back to my beginning – change things Lord! There are things I have said in the past that I shouldn’t have said concerning You. There are times when I have spoken against the anointed of God. Father, change these ones! Let there be a dramatic change from now on! Change everything, everything contrary to me l! Change them all! Change them all! Change them all! Change them all! Change them all!

I think we should just pray some very short prayers before we continue with everything else. I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God:

Father, if You are attending to 2 people here tonight, let me be one of them! Go ahead and talk to the Almighty God. , If You are attending to 2 people here tonight, let me be one of them! If You are attending to 2 people here tonight, let me be one of them! Let me be one of them! Let me be one of them! Almighty God! If You are attending to 2 people here tonight, let me be one of the 2! In Your own wonderful way, let me be one of those two…….. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Cry unto Him again and say, Father – loud and clear –

Father, all the years that the locust had eaten in my life. Restore them to me tonight! Let’s talk to the Almighty God All the years that the locust had eaten in my life, all those years of lost opportunity, restore to me! restore to me! restore to me! The grave that the enemy had dug for me, let him bury himself … every year that the locust had eaten Father, restore to me tonight! Restore to me tonight! Restore to me tonight! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you are going to cry to the Almighty God and say,

the grave that the enemy had dug for me, let the enemy bury himself in it! Let’s cry to the Almighty God: The grave that the enemy had dug for me expecting me to die so he could bury me – let the enemy bury himself in it! Oh yes, let the enemy bury himself in it! The gallows that Hamaan raised up for Mordecai – it was Hamaan himself that hanged himself on it! Father, just as You were then, so You are now – the grave that the enemy had dug for me – let him bury himself in it! Let him bury himself in it! The grave that the enemy had dug for me expecting me to die so he could bury me – let him bury himself in it! Oh, Father…. Alleluia! Thank You Jesus! ….. Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And now you talk to God and say,

Father, renew my youth! Make me younger; make me stronger so that I can serve You longer! Let’s talk to Him! Renew my youth! Make me younger! Make me stronger that I may serve You longer! Renew my youth! Renew my youth like the eagles’! My Father and My God! Renew my youth! Renew my youth like the eagles’! Make me younger! Make me stronger! Make me healthier that I might be able to serve You longer! Renew my youth like the eagles – that I may be able to serve you longer! Serve you more intensely, serve you more powerfully. Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Thank You! Alleluia! Father Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Only two more prayers. First one:

Father, this month give me a giant testimony. Almighty God a giant testimony, a giant testimony! Almighty God – Give me a giant testimony! … Give me a giant testimony! This month is particular, a test of Your love, of Your goodness, of Your generosity, of Your kindness, of Your power, of Your anointing, of Your grace! O Lord God Almighty! Of Your promotion… My Father and My God, of Your faithfulness, of Your Holiness, of Your purity, of Your joy – giant testimony! The world will hear and they will glorify Your Name. A giant testimony…! – We will bless Your Name forever l! Thank You Jesus!

Now the next prayer is your own private prayer request – don’t hide anything from Him – open up to Him, tell Him everything. Tell Him what you want Him to do for you. Like a child to his father, Tell Him! Tell Him! Tell Him! Open up! Tell Him! …… Let’s begin to bring our prayers to a close… In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed!

(Amen!)

Now I want you to join your hands with your neighbour because you are going to pray for you neighbour now. Say,

Father, whatsoever you have to change in the past of my neighbour so that his future will be glorious – Father change it now! Let’s talk to the Almighty God. Whatever You have to change in the past of this Your son so that his future may be glorious – much, much, much more glorious than before do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Do it now! Go into his past; go to his very, very past and begin to rearrange everything so that his future will be extremely glorious Lord God Almighty! Go right now into his past and rearrange everything so marvellously, so well that very, very soon My Father and My God, his future will be so glorious that he himself will be amazed – do it for him! Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord! Thank You Lord! …. Thank You Father! Glory be to Your Name! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed!

Daddy I bless Your Name! I know You have done marvellous things tonight and I know You will do even more. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Every prayer that these Your children have prayed, before Monday morning let it become a testimony (Amen!) Because they came tonight change everything for the better for them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Everything evil in their past cancel them tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Everything evil in their future destroy right now in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Let it be well with them (Amen!) Give then giant testimony (Amen!) Thank You my Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

All right thank you! I appreciate you’re excitement but the Lord says He wants to take a special interest in 2 special cases tonight so I want you to listen to listen carefully please because its very important. The Lord said there’s someone here – they made a charm for you with a padlock and they told you that the keys must never be lost, that if they are lost, you are doomed. And the keys have been lost now and you don’t even know what to do. Daddy said I should tell you that if you come out both the keys and the padlock, he will cancel them. (Amen!) So He asked me to call you out, pray a short prayer for you and that will be that. That’s group 1.

I will count up to ten for the fellow to come out. 1.. 3…. (Applause) …… well, as you know, usually in this kind of situation when God says there is someone here there could be many, many, many of them. So I will still count up to ten to allow everyone involved in that same case to come out 3… 4… 5…. Today is the day of deliverance, oh what a day of victory! 6… 7…. I hope you understand what I said? If you are not involved in that case don’t come out 8 …. 9…. 10. If you are on the way, keep coming. We will pray for you. Make sure you get here before we finish praying. If it is your case that is mentioned then this prayer will work for you. If you just want to jump in when it doesn’t concern you God have mercy on you. Let us pray.

Father, we just want to bless Your Holy Name because You see what no man can see. You understand problems that people cannot even talk about. We thank You that there is no problem so big that you cannot solve. Alpha, I thank you. Tonight I ask that You will go into the past of these people and both the padlock and the keys just destroy in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) The day that padlock was made subtract it from the years of these Your children. (Amen!) Beginning from now, the bondage that these children have entered into as a result of this padlock, I decree that Your anointing will wipe it away in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Let them be free now! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen! Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) God bless you! You can go. You are free now. Let somebody give the Lord a big hand! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God!

Now the second group of people the Lord said that they made a charm for you that if you swallow it you will become rich. That you swallowed it – money didn’t come and now the thing you swallowed is now beginning to move inside you. What they didn’t tell you when they were giving you to swallow it is that at a certain stage it will begin to eat you up from inside. The Lord said because you are here tonight He will go right to the past and neutralize that charm. He asked me to call you forward, pray a simple prayer for you and that will be that. I will count up to 10. If you are in that category come. I will repeat it so you will understand. They made a charm for you, that if you swallow it you will become rich. Now you swallowed it and there’s no money and the thing now is beginning to move inside because they didn’t tell you that that will begin to eat you up from inside. Daddy wants to neutralize it now. So I’ll count up to ten so that all those concerned might come. 1… 2… 3… 4… 5… 6… There’s nothing wrong in wanting to be rich and in the time of ignorance you want to use any method and now thank God for His mercy and His goodness 7…. 8….. 9….. Okay if you are still coming, keep coming as I pray but make sure you reach here before I finish praying that’s all.

Oh Thank You Father! Father, we want to bless Your Holy Name What a merciful God You are! We praise Your Name! Please Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) We thank You for these Your children that in Your infinite mercy out of this big crowd you have fished them out for special deliverance. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) I commit them into Your hands, everything they swallowed that is now beginning to cause problem before the cock will crow let them send them out into the toilet in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Neutralize every evil thing in them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Every plant you did not plant into them, uproot them tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You Father! Amen Praise the Lord!

Well I have good news for you… Daddy asked me to tell you – your money is coming! Met me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) God bless you, you can go now. Let’s give the Lord a big hand! Brethren! Let’s magnify His Holy Name!

It looks as if by the grace of God we are going to end early today. Blessed be the Name of the Lord! But we will listen to some testimonies before we go and while we get ready for that let’s just take one or two announcements ……

Let’s stand on our feet and just praise the Name of the Almighty God.

Let’s shout unto him, let’s clap unto Him, Let’s magnify His Holy Name! Let’s praise Him! He’s the only one who can do these marvellous things. There’s no one like Him – bless Him! Bless Him! Bless Him! Bless Him! Put your hands together and just glorify His Holy Name! Glorify His Holy Name! Glorify His Holy Name! Glorify His Holy Name! Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name!

Our Father and our God, we want to thank You one more time for all that You have done for these Your children who have testified and what you have done for those of us who are yet to testify. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Father, we pray that all these testimonies will be permanent in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!); that all these miracles will live and become mighty men and women of God in Your house in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And all of us that You have touched tonight, I pray Lord God Almighty! …. our own testimonies will never cease in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And as Your children will be going, go with them (Amen!) prosper them (Amen!) bless them (Amen!) let it be well with them (Amen!) In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Alleluia!

REVERSING IRREVERSIBLE – 2

7th of July, 2002

Alleluia! Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ I am confident that somebody’s going to have a breakthrough tonight. (Amen!) If you are that one Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) I have no doubt at all that something is going to happen to somebody tonight that has never happened before. If you are the one Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

There is a song we used to sing when we were younger in the Lord. It’s a very simple song. It says:

We are in God’s presence singing Alleluia!… How many of you know the song? We are in God’s presence singing Alleluia!, Alleluia!…..

Good, now – I’m sure you know it. There’s a way we used to sing it then. We want to sing it like that tonight – all the people behind the altar they will form Group 1. Congratulations! Then all the people in front of me and to the right will form Group 2 and the rest of us will form group 3. Now every group is important. The way we do it is that Group 1 will begin the song and as soon as they get to a particular stage, Group 2 will begin their own and when they get to a particular stage, Group 3 will begin their own and they keep going non-stop till I ask you to stop!

Now it will go like this – Group 1 will say:

We are in God’s presence singing ….. As soon as they get to “singing” Group 2 will begin “We are in God’s presence singing…..” As soon as they get to that Group 3 will begin their own. (We are in God’s presence singing Alleluia!…) Now, Are you ready? Let’s try first – no instrument yet! Group 1 – 3, 4 : We are in God’s presence singing….. We are in God’s presence singing Alleluia!… Very good! – You tried! Now we don’t want somebody to use a loudspeaker and then overshadow all of us. Don’t bother. If you want to sing just move way from the microphone. So – all right. Now are we ready now? You know what to do now? All right – 3,4: We are in God’s presence singing Alleluia!… We are in God’s presence singing Alleluia!… We are in God’s presence singing Alleluia!… Amen! Now one group was too slow. Amen! So they didn’t fit into the flow – don’t slow it down: We are in God’s presence singing Alleluia!…. Alleluia!…Alleluia! We are in God’s presence singing Alleluia!…… Shake hands with one or two people and tell them: tonight is my night! Tonight is my night! And then you may be seated. God bless you!

I want us to put our hands together for all the various choirs that had ministered tonight. I’m sure we are already blessed by the singing and by the messages brought forth by our brothers and sisters from across the seas. We give God the glory for all these blessings.

Now we want to continue our series on

Our Father and our God, we want to bless Your Holy Name because You are worthy to be praised. There’s none like you – all power belongs to You. You are the Ancient of Days, the Unchangeable Lord! We Bless Your Holy Name! For all the blessings we have received tonight accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Accept our praise and worship in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Like never before Lord, visit Your children tonight and at the end of everything take all the glory. (Amen!) In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

because His Name is Omega – the end of all endings. That He can therefore go to your future and rearrange things over there, that the man who is supposed to die blind will suddenly begin to see; that the on e who is supposed to die without a child will suddenly become the mother of children. He can go to the past, change things there, go to the future and change something there.

But then we have something else to discuss about Him today. In

Revelation 1:8 he says, I Am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the ending sayeth the Lord, which is, which was, which is to come, the Almighty. In other words he’s saying, here I am, not only the One who was and the One who is to come, I’m also the One who is now! In the God that we are talking about – inside Him – you find the past, the present and the future coinciding.

Hebrews 13:8

said, Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. In Malachi 3:6 it said: I am the Lord, I change not. In Psalm 90:2 the Bible says, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. We have a God who begins from everlasting, continues till now and will continue to everlasting without changing at all. So He is the Alpha, the beginning; He is the Omega, the ending and more than that He is also the God of now.

That’s why when He was talking to Moses in

Exodus 3:15 He said, my Name is the I AM that I AM, the I AM that I AM. He said my Name is not X this or X that, my Name is not ‘He will be’. My Name is I AM and that’s what David meant when he said in Psalm 46:7, he said, He’s the ever-present help in trouble, the One who has the ability to change things – now. This our God can deal with yesterday. He can deal with tomorrow but He can also deal with today that is why I am confident that there is someone here today, your irreversible will be reversible today!

Now when you go through the Scriptures, because He’s this kind of God who was there in the past, who will be there in the future and who is here right now, this God who is continuous, who is unchangeable, who doesn’t become less, who cannot become greater because He’s already the greatest, who cannot be higher because He’s already the most High, who cannot become more powerful because He’s already the Almighty because that God is here right now, it is within His power to change ‘not yet’ to ‘now!’ Something that they say is ‘not yet’, He can change it to ‘now’.

In

John 2:1-11 there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee. They ran out of wine and the mother of Jesus went to Him and said, Sir, they lack wine. Jesus answered and said, Woman don’t bother me – it is not yet time to begin to perform miracles. But before that day ended, “not yet’ became ‘now’. If anybody has told you that it is not yet time for your miracle, tell that fellow: My God can change ‘not yet’ to ‘now’! He can reverse the irreversible because the Bible tells me that once God has spoken it is already settled. But He said here – it is not yet time and then before the end of the day He said, It is now! I believe that there is somebody here today just as He changed water to wine, in your own life today, your day of miracles will begin today. (Amen!) Today He will change your tears to joy. He will change your failure to success. He will change your shame to glory and He will change your reproach to testimony. If you believe that one shout Alleluia!!

Someone was sharing a testimony with me some time ago. A young man wanted to contest. He wanted to become Governor of his state but the Constitution says you must be 40 years old before you can contest and this young man was 38 years old. According to the Constitution, as far as he’s concerned – it is not yet’ But he has a wife who is a prayer warrior; a wife who will not want to believe that there’s anything called ‘not yet’. This lady went to the Lord and held on to Him and said, “You can reverse the irreversible, You can change ‘not yet’ to ‘now’. She cried to the Almighty God and all of a sudden those who made the Constitution changed the Constitution and the one who was not to be yet Governor became Governor.

There is somebody here today, the enemy may be telling you that the day of your miracle is yet to come. You are going to tell the devil: “today is my day!” Say it loud and clear! Because He stands across time, stretching from everlasting to everlasting with His left hand in everlasting and His right hand in everlasting, He can stretch His hand into everlasting and bring the future to the present. So if the miracle that was meant for you is actually to happen tomorrow, He can stretch His hand to tomorrow and bring tomorrow to today.

In

John 11:21-25, when Lazarus had died and Jesus arrived, the sister of Lazarus said: If You had been here my brother could not have died. Oh, Jesus said: No problem – your brother shall rise again – the sister said I know he will rise on the resurrection morning – far, far ahead – one day he will rise up! Jesus Christ said, that day that you are looking at far away can come and stand before you right now. He said, I am the Resurrection and the Life, if anybody here has any doubt at all as to when his miracle or her miracle will happen I have good news for you. I believe that today is your day! I say, I believe that today is your day!

Psalm 30:5

says, weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. But that passage of the Bible has been very helpful to me in the past. In my early days as General Overseer – oh we had some problems in the Church. When I travelled, I will return home. My wife will begin to tell me of some of the problems – ohhh, one Muslim was troubling the Church in the North. Another little problem was cropping up in the Church somewhere else. One landlord is asking the church to pack out somewhere else. When she had told me everything, my answer had always been – and where is my food? And she will look at me and say – “ah-ah! Can’t you hear all I’ve been saying?” I’ve heard. Won’t I eat? So she would set the table thinking that maybe after I’ve eaten I will talk and then I will eat and then I will say ‘let us pray’ because I want to go and sleep. “What kind of man are you? Don’t you know all the problems we’re talking about?” And I would point the passage to her – weeping may endure for a night, joy is coming in the morning. (Amen!)

If joy is coming in the morning, why must I waste my time tonight? Joy is on the way and I can go and bring that joy of tomorrow morning to tonight. I am confident that there is somebody here tonight – you are going to sing for joy. (Amen!) I say you are going to sing for joy (Amen!) Because He stretches between eternity to eternity and because He’s the God of now! He can change a case that is considered closed to an open case. The world can say your file is already closed – My Father can say – I am just beginning with you! When the world thinks that you are finished, the one whose name is I AM will say – but we are just starting!

A prophet can come to you and say; “Thus says the Lord…no hope for you! Everything is finished! Your file is closed!” The doctor can cone to you and say, “There is no hope at all” But every prophecy that is contrary can be reversed and will be reversed tonight. (Amen!)

In

Isaiah 38:1-8 The Bible says God sent His prophet. He sent His prophet to go and tell King Hezikaih – put your house in order. You are going to die. No hope at all! It is the Word of the Lord. It is not the doctor’s report; this is God’s report! But then this man of God delivered the message and the King said, “Why should that be? God! You know that I will praise You if You allow me to live! And the dead cannot praise You. Those that have gone to the grave they cannot praise You. Those that have gone to the grave they cannot bless Your Name! Only those who are alive can continue to praise You.”

The man of God has delivered this message and was already going but the one who can reverse the irreversible told the man of God and said, “Go back and tell him: you will live for another 15 years. I’m sure the prophet must have said – You are the one who said that he will die, how can you now say that he will live again? Didn’t You say that forever, O Lord Your word is settled? Then the Almighty God would have told that prophet – what’s your business? I can reverse the irreversible! Every prophecy that had come against you; that is contrary to the will of the Almighty God shall be changed tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!).

Many of you know that it is a common belief here – at least in Nigeria, that if a woman or anybody is mad – if he hasn’t come into the public yet – it can still be cured. That is our belief here. But if a mad man or woman breaks loose, runs out and you are pursuing the fellow and you cannot catch the fellow till he gets to the market place then there is nothing more anybody can do about that. That is the belief and I’m sure it is based on lot of research and records. But then I remember one case – years ago.

A young man had a wife. The wife ran mental. The wife ran out naked into the market place before they caught her and then because the felt that this was beyond anything any doctor could dl, they took her to one herbalist. And then one brother who today is one of our Pastors, brought this man to us. We talked. He gave his life to Jesus and he gave us the address of where the wife was and we went there to see the woman and we prayed our little prayers of 2 minutes and then we left the place.

And the Uncle with whom the woman was staying said, “What kind of nonsense is this? They told me one man of God is coming to pray and I thought something great was going to happen. I thought he would light candles – white, red, black – do some chanting, burn some incense, but he came, prayed for 2 minutes and he left! So he said, I think the best thing now is let’s take this woman to the hospital. So they took the woman to the hospital. One way or another, the doctor looked at this woman and said, “This woman looks normal. I will watch her. I won’t give her any drugs. I won’t give her any treatment. I will just watch her. They watched her for 15 days and then they sent for the husband. What do you say is wrong with this woman? Because this woman is completely normal!” Today there is someone here, the world has written you off. You will begin again. (Amen!) You will have a brand new beginning. (Amen!) Because He’s the God of now! Because He goes from eternity to eternity! He can change a total failure to a total success in one day. Total failure to total success in one day!

The Bible is full of examples but you can take that of Peter for example. You know the story in

Luke 5:1-8. He was a man who had failed. He fished all night and caught nothing, But then the One who can reverse the irreversible come into his boat and in one day the unsuccessful fisherman became the most successful fisherman – He became the fisher of men – he became the leading Apostle. He became the Unforgettable Galileean. He became the man whose shadow began to heal the sick. All because the One who can reverse the irreversible stepped into his boat. That’s why I was thrilled when I was listening to Pastor Sunday Adelaja. I didn’t know that there’s a village that is smaller than my own but when he said there are only about 300 people in his own village I said my own village must be a city then! If God can pick somebody from a village of 300 people and turn him to a Pastor of 20,000 people in Europe and that God is here today I am sure my own miracle will happen today. I say my own miracle will happen today. He can reverse the irreversible. He can pick somebody who is completely empty and make him overflow!

Oh, I’m sure you remember the story of the woman who had no seed, had no ovary at all – was married but barren and they had spent a lot of money until they came to a professor who said: Why are you wasting your time? This woman has no ovaries! And if there are no ovaries what are you going to fertilize Mr. man? Go home! Stop wasting your money – Your wife can never have a child!” And then of course the woman was devastated but the husband said – that is the doctor’s report……

She was on the ground for almost one hour. I thought because it was night time she was trying to get a little bit of sleep. I didn’t know God was performing an operation – every operation necessary in your body – my Father will do it tonight! (Amen!) You know the rest of the story. The following year the woman that had no ovaries came rejoicing with her own baby. I don’t know who God is talking to tonight but everyone who’s considered incurably empty tonight you shall be full in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Because He can reverse the irreversible, He can pick somebody that everyone says this one is down and out, He can turn him to somebody who is up and over – that’s what happened to Joseph in

Genesis 41:38-44. He was not just a prisoner – he was a slave that became a prisoner. Everybody thought that this one is finished, even the man that he helped in prison. And he told him when it is well with you remember me. That man forgot him. There are some of you that had been forgotten. God will remember you tonight. In one night – the man who was forgotten, a slave, a prisoner, the one who was thrown into prison that was supposed to be there forever – in one day he became the Prime Minister of Egypt. But there’s one part of that story that I think many of us don’t even think about – when Pharaoh placed Joseph on the throne, he said: From now on I will be the only one above you. Every other fellow in Egypt must bow to you. Do you know what that one means? It means Potiphar must bow to Joseph. All those who threw you into bondage they will come to bow down to you. (Amen!) All those responsible for your sorrow, they will come and bow down to you. (Amen!)

I’m sure I’ve told you the story before of a lady who was disappointed on her wedding day. The wedding day was fixed. The boy told him no problem, we’re marrying. So the wife dressed, went to the registry waiting for the bridegroom to show up. All her friends were there and they were just waiting for a very wonderful wedding. They waited, they waited. The boy didn’t come. You can imagine the agony of the girl! But somehow she overcame the sorrow and somehow she got married to another boy. And the boy she got married to joined the Army and one day the boy she got married to became a military Governor and then they chose for her husband, a soldier who is to be the aide-de-camp and the aide–de-camp was the boy who disappointed the girl! The one who jilted the girl now has to open the door for her to enter!

I want you to listen clearly to me tonight because God is speaking to someone and He’s saying to you – you have been diagnosed in the open. I will glorify you in the open! (Amen!) The God who can reverse the irreversible He can change ‘not you’ to ‘you’ today. In other words, there are certain miracles that have certain names written on them, certain addresses written on them, certain addresses written on them. Maybe the angels in heaven had looked at all he miracles to be distributed tonight and they cannot find your name there but because you are here, because you are about to cry to God who can reverse the irreversible, the miracle that is not for you will suddenly become your own. (Amen!)

You know the story in

Matthew 15:21-28. There was a woman who came to Jesus – help me, Lord help me! My daughter is grievously vexed of a devil. Jesus did not answer her and she kept on praying, she kept on pleading. The disciples said Lord, send this woman away – her noise is disturbing us! Tonight when it is tome to pray and you begin to shout and somebody says your noise is disturbing – tell the fellow – I’m not praying to you. If you don’t like my noise, go somewhere else because God must answer me tonight! God didn’t answer the woman. The disciples said – send her away, the noise is disturbing us – Thank You Father! Alleluia!

The Lord said there is someone here tonight you were sterilized because you didn’t want more children but now you want more children. The Lord asked me to tell you – He has reversed the treatment. (Amen!)

So this woman, the Lord said, I’m not sent but to the household of Israel – woman, the miracle you are asking for is not for you! The woman came, fell down at the feet of Jesus – she fell at His feet and said, Lord, Have mercy on me! Jesus said, Woman I can’t give the bread of the children to dogs. The woman said – this dog is going to get a miracle tonight. I may be a dog. I don’t doubt that at all. I know you said the miracle is for the children but before I go home today what is not for me is going to be for me! Somebody’s going to get a miracle here today! (Amen!)

It reminds me of a funny story. Years ago I was staying with an uncle who was as poor as anybody. Because he had no money it is whenever he had food to eat that I can share. I have no money too. So there was this day both of us were very hungry – we didn’t know where food will come from and suddenly a young girl came in carrying pounded yam and a lot of meat and said to my Uncle: My sister said, I should take this food to you. And my Uncle said: Your sister? What’s the name? She mentioned the name. My Uncle said: I don’t know that name. Are you sure they said you should take the food to me? The girl said: Yes. Are you sure? She said Yes! Okay. Thank your sister. So the girl left. As soon as she left my uncle said to me: I don’t know where this food is coming from! I’m hungry – you are hungry. You better let us begin work! As soon as we finished the pounded yam the girl came back and said: Sorry this is not the house whew I was sent. Somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) I couldn’t care less! The food has already entered my stomach! I thought the argument will now be between my uncle and this strange woman. I don’t know how God is going to do it tonight but the miracle that does not even belong to you will come your way in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

reversing the irreversible. Last month we began to study that we have a God who can reverse the irreversible. We told us that one of the reasons why He can reverse the irreversible is because His Name is Alpha – the beginning of beginnings. That’s why He can go back to your beginnings and change whatever is wrong there so that your present can suddenly change; that He can go to your christening day, the day they named you and change your name and by changing your name He can change your situation now. He can go to your mother’s womb and change things there and what He changed there will appear now. He can even go beyond that one to the days before He formed you and change things over there. So because He’s Alpha, because He was there before the mountains were brought forth, he can go there and uproot every mountain in your life and suddenly things will change in the present.

And we said another reason why He can reverse the irreversible is

Why? Why will God give you a miracle that does not belong to you?

You see, because there is a law called the law of substitution. In Proverbs 11:8 it says, the righteous is delivered out of trouble and the wicked cometh instead. There is a law written in the Word of God that says God can make substitution. He can give to you a miracle that does not belong to you and take the punishment and give it to somebody else. He can give you the joy that does not belong to you and take the sorrow that belongs to you and give it to somebody else. Oh you don’t believe me? I can show you again and again and again in the Bible! I am sure somebody is not going home empty handed today in Jesus name, Amen

Daniel 6

. You know the story very well. They took Daniel and threw him into the den of lions. The lions saw Daniel coming and they said, Ah, this one is finished. Food has come. But the Almighty God said to the lions, oh this man has just been praying. You are not going to eat him! O Lord You are the One who said we should eat. We are to eat flesh. Oh God said Yes, yes I know. But I have told you that lions cannot eat lions. Lord this one is not a lion it is a human being. It looks like a human being but it is the son of the Lion of Judah. (Amen!) And so the lion said all right, all right. And God said, No, no lions, don’t be angry. Tomorrow you will eat and by the following day – after they brought Daniel out of the lion’s den – the Almighty God prepared a substitute. He told the King to send for all those who said I should throw Daniel into the lion’s den and tell them when they are coming they should with their wives, come with their children and they brought them and the King said, who is this man standing? They said, It is Daniel. What happened to him yesterday? We threw him into the den of lions. Have you ever seen anybody gone into the den of lions and come out alive before? They said no. So the King said something must have happened to my lions or they are dead or they have been stolen! I want you to do something. You and your wives, your children go into the den and find out for me what happened to my lions. The Bible said before they reached the den the lions finished them.

Every enemy that had decided to finish you they shall be finished tonight (Amen!) because of the law of substitution!

I can go on and on. I can give you the example of those that carried Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego. You will discover before they could even throw them in the fire had already slayed them. There are examples, even from real life …. But there are so many other things I want to talk about very quickly –

why is the fact that God, the God of now, is so important? Why is it that He says I AM that I AM is so important? The reason is there are certain miracles that cannot wait. Some miracles can wait till tomorrow but some miracles must happen tonight and I belong to the category of those whose miracles must happen tonight! Maybe I should ask you when exactly you want your miracle? (Now!) Tomorrow? Next week? During the Convention? If you want your miracle now let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Do you remember when David came face to face with Goliath in

1 Samuel 17? If you can read from verse 48 to 50…. 1 Samuel: 48-50. Suppose on that day as David was coming against Goliath and he put a sling in his catapult and slang. And suppose that stone missed? Suppose Goliath saw the stone coming and dodged? What do you think would have happened to David? That would have been the end. There are some miracles that cannot wait. And I know there are some people who are facing their Goliath right now and I want to prophesy to you in the mighty Name of Jesus that before the sun rises you’ll be holding the head of Goliath in your hand. (Amen!)

Some miracles cannot wait. God has to reverse the irreversible and do it now! I’m sure you’ve heard me share this testimony with you. Years ago my driver and I were traveling to Ilorin and between Ogbomosho and Ilorin there is one very narrow bridge that just … one vehicle has to stop for the other. And we were going and we were the first to get on the bridge and we were already on the bridge. All of a sudden – from the other side came a trailer. Either, he didn’t see us or his brake failed, he just kept on coming and the bridge was too narrow to take two cars talk less of a car and a trailer. That was not the time when you begin to pray Our father which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name…. But thank God there was enough time to shout one word – let me hear somebody shout that name – (Jesus!)

We were already on the bridge the trailer was coming down on us – there’s a choice – either head-on collision with the trailer or jump into the deep river and drown but we shouted the Name of Jesus and somehow, in a way that is difficult to explain, we met at the middle of the bridge and we passed. He went his way – we went our way! O Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) When we got to the other side of the bridge the driver was so terribly shaken – he parked for about five minutes. He was just shaking. Thank God he didn’t look back because I was shaking. But finally before he could talk I had already gained my composure. So he said, Daddy what happened. I said, I think my God expanded the bridge!

There is a God that can reverse the irreversible. There is a God who can take a concrete bridge and turn it to something elastic and for the rest of the journey my driver kept on saying Wonderful, wonderful. And I told him, Yes, that’s one of His Names. His Name is Wonderful. He’s going to perform wonders in the lives of somebody here tonight. (Amen!) If you are the one Let me hear you shout ’Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Or when you consider the case of Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego

in Daniel 3. If you read from verse 19 to 27, when they threw Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego into the fiery furnace if the Son of God had not shown up immediately there would be nothing left of Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego. There are certain miracles that cannot wait till tomorrow. It is a good thing to be able to say O God, I know You can do all things. You can do it whenever You want. But there are certain miracles, no, no, no, no, God it is not a question of You do it on Saturday morning – it is that I want it to be done now. If it doesn’t move at that very moment, if the Son of God was not in the fiery furnace in that instance Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego would have perished.

By the way I just couldn’t be telling you all the healings that are going on but the Almighty God is doing a lot of healings right away as I’m talking. Now some of you probably have heard the testimony of this woman. She was pregnant in the United States of America. She was diabetic, she was hypertensive and she had one other complication> They said her blood is such that when she has a wound the blood will not clot. She was pregnant.

It was time to deliver and they found that the baby was too big for the passage. The only way they could get the baby out is by operation. To operate – if they touch the woman with a knife at all she would just keep bleeding till she dies. So what are they going to do? The baby can’t come out. They can’t operate on the woman so what are we going to do? And the woman phoned her mother here in Nigeria and the mother came and said, this is my problem. Please can you go to America and go and pray for my daughter? I’m sorry Ma, I have so much work to do But I have a God, a powerful God – get me 2 handkerchiefs. I didn’t know why I asked for two but I said bring two and I prayed over the two handkerchiefs. You take these handkerchiefs to your daughter. It will carry the anointing to her and a miracle will happen. I don’t know how but a miracle will happen.

She went to her daughter and gave her one of the handkerchiefs and kept the other one. By the following morning the handkerchiefs she gave her daughter had disappeared. They searched for it all over the place. They didn’t find it. So the mother said we thank God there is a second one. This second one they tied it round the wrist of the woman that the one who was going to take this one away will have to cut off the wrist. And then the doctor came and examined the woman and said Ma, we are sorry about this – if we do not operate the baby is getting tired, the baby will die inside the womb and both the mother and the baby will perish. If we operate we could rescue the baby but the mother will surely die! So you have to make up your mind. There’s no way out of the two. And the old woman looked up and said, O God, there’s nobody else I can call upon now and there’s nothing else I can do now. So she said it is up to you doctors – you do whatever you can do. So the doctors left to go get ready to return within minutes so they can take the woman to the theatre. Before the doctors returned – the baby had arrived!

Today there is somebody I have no doubt about it – your miracle will arrive right now! (Amen!) If the Almighty God had not jumped n to stop the mouth of lions when they threw in Daniel there’ll be no Daniel to talk about. There are certain miracles that cannot wait and I believe my own and your own miracles will be in that category tonight. (Amen!)

Maybe I’ll just tell you two more stories and then we’ll go and pray. Just to let you know that there is a God who can perform a miracle and perform it now!

Several years ago when we first came to this camp, this main road was the headquarters of armed robbers as you know and every night they will attack vehicles. And when they attacked vehicles, the occupants will run from there and run to this Camp. One day they attacked a vehicle, the occupants ran to the camp and just as the thieves were about to begin to loot the car the police arrived with guns and so the thieves ran away. Meanwhile the occupants of the car had come to the camp to come and call our brothers to come and help them. So the carpenters and the bricklayers they took cudgel, took everything and they were following these people. The police had laid an ambush expecting the thieves to come back. When they saw our people coming towards the car they thought they were the thieves and the leader of the police contingent gave order Open Fire! All the policemen wanted to pull their triggers but the God who can reverse the irreversible told their fingers not to move. (Amen!) The officer gave the order 3 times: Fire! Fire! Fire! And they just couldn’t fire. That is a miracle that happened instantly and today all of you that had been condemned to death by the enemy, the Almighty God will reverse the irreversible in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Oh I said I can give you example upon example. I can give you the example of the widow of the son of the prophet in

2 Kings 4:1-7 when the creditors came and said – if you don’t bring our money by tomorrow your children will go into bondage. That id the story of someone who must have a miracle today or tomorrow will be too late. I have heard somebody prophesy here tonight that one way or another your debts shall be paid. I want to say Amen with those of you who might be owing anybody but I want to add to that that the Almighty God will do it and do it immediately! (Amen!)

You remember the story, many of you do – you know that during our Convention people who come are fed free and then they had come for the convention this year, that particular year and they were all having a nice time. They didn’t know that I had no kobo left in my pocket and my wife came to me that morning and said Daddy, we need N5000 and in those days N5000 was like N5million. So I said, is that all? She said, ‘Yes”. I said, When do you need the money? Is it today or now? She said, What is the difference? I said, Ah, there’s a lot of difference. If she has said ‘Now’ I would have said ‘There’s not a kobo.’ She said Look don’t play with me, you know these people they will soon be going for food and we need to put food on the table. You told them you need the money today. Go! As soon as the money is available I will send for you! Not a kobo in my pocket. Then she left.

I said God. You heard her! We need N5,000 and we need it now! Shortly after that 2 young people came in and they began to talk. Well Daddy, we thank God for your life. We see the burden you are carrying and we thought we should help you carry part of the burden…. And I saw an envelope in their hands, My heart was saying, Please forget the story- Give me the envelope, Finally they gave me the envelope. I blessed then. They left. I opened the envelope and found N2,000 there. I said Thank You God! 2 down, 3 to go.

Suddenly one man came in his flowing robe – businessman – and he began to talk … I was just going past and I saw what is happening here. Oh! I am so thrilled! Next year I will be part of this programme! I said, Look at this man! I’m talking now- He’s talking next year! And then after he said that, he said, But then, let me give you the little I have. I said mm-mmh, now you are talking. So he put his hand in his pocket and gave me N1,000. I said, Lord, thank You 3 down. 2 to go. To cut a long story short…… Very soon I had N5,000 with me. So I sent to my wife – how much do you say you need? How much do you really say you need? Somebody’s going to shout for joy this morning. (Amen!)

If I want my miracle now, what do I do?

7 things quickly, I’ll just tell you briefly and then go on. Number 1: You must refuse to tolerate reproach for a day longer! If you are willing to continue with reproach in your life for another day, God is not going to hurry. Sickness is a reproach to God. Poverty is a reproach to God. Barrenness is a reproach to God. Failure is a reproach to God. You have to be able to say like David said: Who is this Philistine approaching the army of the living God? . He said. I will deal with him today! He said to God this day, this day the Lord will hand you over to me and I want somebody to say, this day my Goliath will fall.

The second thing that you must do is that you must not take no for an answer. When you go to God in prayer, please don’t take no for an answer.

When the mother of God came to Him and said, they have no wine and Jesus said, don’t bother me. She did not accept no for an answer! People have taught us I’m sure you’ve heard it before: when you pray God may say Yes, God may say No, God may say ‘wait’ It sounds very good but the next time you hear that one ask them to show you in the Bible where it is written. What my God said is that if you ask anything in my name I will say yes! I will say no! I will say wait! Is that what is written in your Bible? No! It said, if you ask anything in my Name – I will do it! He’s going to answer somebody here tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!).

The third thing that you must do is that you must insist for a yes

– reverently, worshipfully – God tonight it has to be yes. It is not a question of no, it is not a question of may be, it is not even a question of wait till tomorrow like somebody led us in prayer this evening. Like Jacob we hold onto God, we will not let you go until you bless me. You will just say to the Almighty God like that woman – I know that miracles might be for children and you may say that miracles are not for dogs……

– reverently, worshipfully – God tonight it has to be yes. It is not a question of no, it is not a question of may be, it is not even a question of wait till tomorrow like somebody led us in prayer this evening. Like Jacob we hold onto God, we will not let you go until you bless me. You will just say to the Almighty God like that woman – I know that miracles might be for children and you may say that miracles are not for dogs……

The fourth thing you must do is that you, yourself must be ready to obey Him completely.

When the mother of Jesus said they lacked wine, and he said don’t bother me, the mother of Jesus said to those who were there, whatever He ask you to do, do it. Tonight, if God asks you to pray, pray, if He asks you to give, give, if He asks you to dance, dance – if He ask you to shout, shout, whatever He asks you to do, do it and he will surprise you tonight.

 

Many of you will remember the story of a woman, who was carried to our crusade. The doctors have told her you are going to die. There is no hope, somebody told her there is a crusade happening somewhere here. We hear miracles are happening there, go there. So they carried her into a taxi and brought her to the crusade and told her if they just dance, they will receive their miracle. So when they brought this lady, she met the then A.G.O; Papa now the D.G.O and he said “no, instruction has come, no praying for anybody, all we are to do, we are to dance”. The woman said I can’t even stand, talk less of dance, papa said I am sorry about that, God has spoken, you need a miracle? Dance.”

 

Finally they dragged out the woman. One man was holding her on the right, another one supporting her on the left and they said “Just begin to move a little, dance is dance”, And as she began to move the power of God hit her and she pushed the fellow on the left away and then began serious dancing! That was the end of the sickness. Tonight the power of God will hit somebody mightily in Jesus name, (Amen!) … As you begin to obey Him completely.

 

The fifth thing that you must do, if your miracle is to happen today, is that you must become, fully committed to Him from now on.

if the Almighty God sees that you are still one leg in the world and one leg in the church, He is going to delay your miracle until you make up your mind. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego said, the God who we serve is able to deliver us. If He does not deliver us, we are not doubting.” Daniel said, “you said I shouldn’t pray? “, he said, “you haven’t seen any thing yet”. These people were fully committed to God, that is why they got their miracle instantly.

 

The sixth thing that you must do is that, when it is time to pray, which is going to be very soon, you are to cry to Him not whisper.

Oh we know that God is not deaf and we can just whisper He will hear. Then if we go through the scriptures you will find again and again that these people who got their miracles instantly, they cried unto the Lord, the widow of the son of the prophet cried unto the man of God. Blind Bartemaeus cried unto the Lord and the Word of God say’s in Psalm 50:15, He said call upon me in the day of trouble and I will answer you. It didn’t say whisper to me in the day of trouble, it said cry unto me on the day of trouble and I have given you example upon examples before.

 

I have told you there were three men, highly educated, Ph.D. Oxford holders and the three of them were involved in a motor accident, seriously wounded taken to emergency ward of a hospital, and there is one doctor, and the three of them were bleeding seriously and one of them said: “the doctor should know that I need help that’s why I am here so I don’t need to talk.” And the second one said: “I think I better talk because this situation is critical, but I must remember I have Ph.D. Oxford, so I must talk like a civilized man”, so he said “doctor there is someone here who is in need of help.” And the third one said “today is not the day of grammar, this is the day of trouble, I need help and I need it now!” and he lifted up his voice and said “d-o-c-t-o-r help”. Now which of the three is going to receive the first attention? Now who is going to be the first that God will attend to tonight, then let me hear you shout h-e-l-p.

 

And that brings us to the

seventh thing you must do. Hebrews 11:6, it says without faith it is impossible to please God. If you are going to talk to Him today for an instant miracle, you have to do that with faith. When that woman that Jesus said I am not going to give a miracle to you fell at His feet and said give me just a crumb, Jesus said” woman great is thy faith.” and in all the places you find people, the woman with the issue of blood and so on and so forth receiving instantaneous miracle, Jesus turned to them and said “thy faith had made thee whole”. So tonight if you refuse to tolerate reproach for one day longer, if you are one of those people who will not take no for an answer today, very soon now, we are going to begin to call on the Almighty God, he is going to make every thing new, go to the past, change the past, go to the future change the future, come to now and give instantaneous miracle!

 

But he can only begin to do that for you if you are in Christ.

If any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things are passed away, and all things become new. That is why before we pray, I am going to give a few minutes to those of you who want to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, those who want to say, “alright enough is enough, I am not going to delay my salvation any longer, I am no longer going to play with my salvation. I won’t put one leg in the world and one leg in Jesus Christ any more. I am going to surrender completely to Him. I want him to take over from now on. I want my own miracle or salvation and I want it now!”

 

I want such people now to begin to come. I am going to count from one to ten, today is not the day we can say, you can come when you like. Many of us here are getting ready for our miracles and we want it now. So we are not going to wait for you for too long. If you want to give your life to Jesus I will count up to ten. Before I get to ten you must be in front. The Bible said today is the day of salvation, He didn’t say tomorrow. You don’t know anything about tomorrow. Only God is the controller of tomorrow, so if you don’t surrender your life to Him today, tomorrow might be too late. The gates of mercy are still open. The Lord is waiting for you, to give you mercy. Those that are still coming out you better hurry. Thank you Father, save souls tonight Lord!

 

Father we bless Your name, we thank You for Your word, because it has pleased You to draw these ones to You. You said no one comes to you unless you draw the person. Thank You they have responded to your drawing. Father, You promised that whosoever will come unto You, You will in no wise cast out. They have come to You now, Father, receive them in Jesus’ name. (Amen!). Your blood that cleanses from all sins, let it wipe away their sins in Jesus name, (Amen!); write their names in the book of life in Jesus name! (Amen!). Everything in their lives contrary to your will, remove today in Jesus name! (Amen!) Beginning from today Lord let every thing become new for them in Jesus name! (Amen!). Father in your kingdom don’t let them be found wanting in Jesus name! (Amen!). Thank you my father, glory be to your name, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed, in Jesus name! (Amen!).

 

I want you to meditate on what you have just heard before we go into prayers. Classify all those miracles you want, those ones that can wait, those ones you want tomorrow morning and those ones you want tonight. Think about them, and as you are thinking about them, just remember that we are dealing with God who can reverse the irreversible; because when we go into the section of prayers, we have to go with that concrete belief that before we leave here tonight we will have testimonies. So for just about two to three minutes let us just mediate on what we have heard and then we will continue from there as the Counsellors attend to the new converts.

Now as we pray, you have to remember, you might be the only one needing your miracle now. The others might not be too hungry for a miracle. There was a multitude that followed Jesus, it was Bartimaeus that needed an instant miracle, so he was the one who kept on crying, so lift up your voice and say Father.

 

“Father, increase my faith tonight. I want to be able to move all the mountains out of my way. I want my faith to reach the mountain level top. Mountain moving faith is what I am asking for tonight”…..

 

“Every reproach in my life, must go now – sickness, disease, poverty, barrenness, must go now”……

 

“Tonight every irreversible thing in my life, reverse them now! Every negative prophesy reverse now”.

 

God made a promise, He said some people will get a garment of praise instead of the spirit of heaviness. So you are going to call to the Almighty God and say Father, every garment of sorrow, of failure, of barrenness, of poverty take it away from me and give me a garment of praise”…..

 

We are moving to warfare mood now, David said to Goliath this day God will hand you over to me and I will cut off your head.

 

“In the Mighty name of Jesus, every Goliath in my life, you will fall now…..

 

Now you, yourself, you can feel that the Almighty God is here and I am sure you have your own private request, go before God now and tell Him.

 

“My miracles can’t wait till tomorrow, I have waited long enough Lord, today is the day, I need your help in the following areas. I need my miracles in these areas and I need them now.

 

Go to Him now tell Him your private request. Lets bring our prayers to a close. Thank you father, in Jesus Mighty name, we pray. (Amen!).

 

Now I want us to join hands together, the Bible says we are to love our neighbours as ourselves, you have prayed for yourself. It is time now to pray for your neighbour.

 

“Say Father, this my neighbour every irreversible thing in his/her life, reverse now; and take all the glory for it Father….. Thank You Father, thank You Lord, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed”.

 

Soon I am going to pray for you but before I do that I want you to pray for me.

 

Call on the Almighty God that he should do, what He alone can do in my life………. in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed

.

 

Now I want you to join me on your knees. This is the night, whether the devil likes it or not, the night has come, in the Mighty name of Jesus. (Amen!)

“Father because You can do the impossible, because You can reverse the irreversible, tonight prove Yourself, Father prove Yourself, heal me tonight, cure the incurable, every opportunity that has been lost, return tonight in Jesus name. (Amen.!)

 

All those who are considered barren, made them fruitful tonight in Jesus name. (Amen!). Open blind eyes, open deaf ears, make the lame to walk, do the impossible Oh Lord. My father and my God, anything that can not be repaired in the bodies of these your children, replace tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

Everybody here tonight Father, give us the garment of praise, put a new song in our mouth, give us a testimony tonight, before the sun will rise let us have testimonies. Thank you my father, glory be to your name, we pray in Jesus Mighty name. If you believe that shout Alleluia!

 

Let me tell you the reason why you are going to pray: A woman became pregnant and after she became pregnant she discovered that she was having some very strange pains in the stomach, by the time she was five months pregnant, somebody introduced her to the RCCG. I will cut the story, because it is a long story. But on the 28th of last month she went to the maternity center in Port-Harcourt, and there after a very serious struggle in prayer and intercession, she delivered. But then, the strange thing is that two things came with the baby (one is a tortoise and the other a scorpion) and by the time the baby was born everything in the placenta has been dried up. When the scorpion and the tortoise came out, they were still full of life moving about on the delivery bed. Brethren came and prayed and it died. Now some of you may think that, that’s not life play, I have a picture of the mother and the baby here with me. I also have the picture of the tortoise and the scorpion with me. And I am arranging that she will come here during the convention to give you the testimony herself. That’s why we want to pray one more prayer.

 

“Every plant that my Father did not plant, that is hiding anywhere in my body or in my home or in my office, in the church of God, Father uproot today.”| Let’s call on the Almighty God, every demonic tortoise, every demonic scorpion, snake, that is in my body oh Lord uproot today….. Thank you my father, in Jesus Mighty name we pray. (Amen!).

 

I said you should pray one more prayer- just command in the name of Jesus, that Satan will take his dirty hands completely off everything. Say in the Mighty name of Jesus, Satan take your dirty hands off my family, my people, my business, my children, my church take your dirty hands off. In the Mighty name of Jesus….. (Amen!), I command you in the name of Jesus today right now, ask I command you, take your dirty hands off me, in Jesus Mighty name, we have prayed, and so shall it be in Jesus name.

 

Before you leave this camp ground, any plant that God did not plant in your system shall be rooted off in the name of Jesus. And from today the enemy will not look in your direction and when the enemy sees you coming they will run in Jesus name, Amen!

 

You can sit down. The devil is a liar! The enemy is out there but the Lord is greater! Can you imagine what would have happened, tortoise, scorpion growing together in the same womb with the baby and somebody has already told that woman that she will never deliver but then the Almighty God said I am greater than the enemy. My God can reverse the irreversible. If you believe that let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia! (‘Alleluia!’)’. Oh! Glory be to God.

 

Maybe I will make one announcement quickly. Some people after the Holy Ghost Service have formed the habit of going to the office of the G.O, that is not right because the power of God that is here, when we are all gathered is so big, you can not get it any where else. ……

 

That’s the first thing. Secondly, by the time the General Overseer leaves here, he is already tired, whether you believe it or not he is a human being, so even if you force him to pray, he is not going to pray from the bottom of his heart, he is going to pray to get ride of somebody who doesn’t know what is right for him or her.

 

Thirdly, any prayer he prays over there will cancel the ones that has been prayed here, because that means you are telling God, I don’t believe that all the prayers that we have been praying since evening will work for me. So pray something new. And so you have to put all these together and as soon as you finish here go home believing God, rejoicing in Him and you will have a testimony.

 

Finally, we have a programme at Ebute-Metta the second Monday of every month, that we call “Mount Zion Hour”, any time Daddy G.O. is in Nigeria, it doesn’t matter how many people that come to that one, he will lay hands on everybody. So if you say, until his hand touches my head I won’t get my miracle, then come  to “Mount Zion Hour”. It’s Monday morning, 9am. The G.O. is not yet tired, he hasn’t prayed any prayer before that period, if you come to that one you will receive your miracle, and don’t say “oh! No! If we are too many he won’t lay hands on me.” There was a time when there were about 28,000 (twenty-eight thousand) people there, we lay hands on every one of them, even though at the end of that we have to almost crow to climb to our office but I’m advising you don’t bother yourself going to the office after the Holy Ghost Service, it is not wisdom to do so. Do I hear ‘Amen’ to that?

 

Good the following people will come and share their testimony with us: –

Sister Olusola Kayode, Mrs. Folashade Okon, brother Isaac Obiato, Glades Sawe, Sister Toyin Akindele, brother Leke Adenuga, Sister Edith Ofili, these people will come to share their testimony quickly.

 

Is there anybody who has been blessed tonight? I mean seriously blessed? Well, it is time to say thank you to Jesus and the Ushers will come, we will give our thanksgiving offering, we will dance sitting down as they attend to us, but after they have attended to you, you can stand and dance. I believe that tonight is my night. I know without any doubt that I will have serious testimony. So I want you to join me in really giving God a very big thank you offering. `

 

Thank you Lord. Is there any one that the ushers didn’t reach? If they didn’t reach you shout ‘alleluia’. Good, Father bless the offering of Your children (Amen!). from today let them have something to thank You about. (Amen!) Everything they touch from now, let it prosper. (Amen!) Every obstacle towards their prosperity Father destroy them today. (Amen!) Every one of these your children Father, this month in particular, give a special financial breakthrough (Amen!) in Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!). Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

 

Now let’s listen to your testimonies please, two minutes each.

 

Praise the Lord! My name is Olusola Kayode, I came for the June Holy Ghost Service and I have been tormented by the spirit of Asthma for the past 13 years but last month I came here, God has reversed the irreversible, since then I have not had the attack, I have been eaten what I don’t use to eat and I have been okay, praise the Lord.

 

Praise the Lord, I’m Edith Ofili, I want to thank God for the special thing, he did in my life last month. In fact God is no respecter of person, I came here because I wanted God to reverse a particular thing that has been a stumbling block in my life, and I thank God, God did. Last year I got engaged and during the courtship, I learnt that the person I was suppose to marry is an AS, I quickly went to check my blood group and when I got there they took my blood, I was disappointed when I was given the result. I also was an AS. This is the result. We were not biologically compatible, but we were always praying, we have faith in God because our faith in God remain undoubted. So before the last Holy Ghost Service, when we came for the Children’s Special Holy Ghost Service, I prayed to God that God I don’t want to bury any of my children with my own hands. I really prayed that prayer as if I already had kids but I was praying because I wanted to pray into their lives, I want to give God the glory because when I came here last month, I told God specifically, Father change my AS to AA and I want to thank God because on the 27th of this month I exercised the greatest faith I ever exercised in this world and this is the result, I am now AA to God be the glory, this is the report of the Lord, praise the Lord.

 

*Praise the Lord, my name is Isaac Usioba Ifo, I bless the name of the Lord for delivering me from one of the shameful thing I have ever experienced which was bed wetting, God delivered me in the Holy Ghost Service of March.

 

*Praise the Lord, my name is Mrs. Toyin Akindele, I want to thank God specially for delivering me from the problem of heavy menstrual flow, the problem started about 24 years ago and it has been on, every month, whenever my period is coming, the fear will be there. I dare not sit down for long; if I sit down and I want to get up I will realize that I will be draining all over. I had prayed, medically there was no solution, sometime last year I came for the Holy Ghost Service and our father in the Lord spoke the word of knowledge “that you are here, you are experiencing heavy menstrual flow as if a tap is been turned on that God has healed you. You should check, it has stopped”, and by the grace of God, since then, I have not experienced the heavy flow, it has been normal.

 

*My name is Leke Adenuga. God of wonder, exactly 4 months ago at the April Holy Ghost Night, we were asked to bring our children, so I prepared my family for the programme, myself, my wife, the children and the house girl. In the car, on our way to the camp, immediately after the Ogere tollgate, we met a roadblock on the road, I never knew it was the thieves that have set the bracket. We ran into it. To cut the long story short, we met ourselves on the other side of the road, the car went into the bush and with the help of an embankment we were hooked up and we stopped, miraculously we thought the unexpected most have happened, I looked around, all my family were intact, we came out of the car and while the car swerved on the road. I was also trying to maintain balance, so this hand got removed, it was like it got dislocated.And while we were just coming out of the car, some hefty men about three of them, not knowing that they were the one that set the trap; so when they came thinking that they want to help us, I now discovered that they were the thieves, I don’t know, Holy Ghost came upon me, I raised the other hand up and say, look we are Pastors, and we are going to the Redemption Camp! Immediately they heard it They stood and left their gun and they were looking at us and when I discovered that they were still, every one of them were still as a stone. We were looking at ourselves, eye ball to eye ball, then it dawn on me that we have to do something, immediately, I ordered my family to move out of the premises and we moved out of their presence and they were looking at us until we left.Miraculously too this hand was healed, I didn’t use any medicine and by the grace of God, since 1996, I have been trusting God for a divine healing, no tablets was used. I was on P.O.P for 4 weeks and afterwards it was removed. I got the restoration of my hand and my family was intact, we escaped by the divine hands of the Lord, we bless God for that.

PRAISE THE LORD!

REVERSING IRREVERSIBLE – 3

8th of August, 2002

Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (‘Alleluia!’) If you know that your joy is just beginning let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (‘Alleluia!’) If you are going to be the first to receive a miracle tonight, let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (‘Alleluia!’) If you know you are not going home the way you came tonight, let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (‘Alleluia!’) If the Almighty God is going to prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemy, let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (‘Alleluia!’)

Let’s go before the Almighty God, if you can find a place to kneel, then kneel but if you can’t find there is no problem. Let’s worship the Holy One of Israel. …….

There is none holy as the Lord …….. Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord… You are high and lifted up….. You are the most High, You are the most High …….

Let’s go ahead and worship the Almighty God, let’s bless Him. Bless the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the I Am that I Am, the Ancient of Days! Bless the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Bless the Bright and Morning Star! Magnify His Holy Name – He’s worthy to be praised! Praise Him, worship Him! Adore Him! Tell Him you love Him! Tell Him you appreciate Him! Magnify His Holy Name! Praise Him! Praise Him! ……… Thank you! Thank You! , Blessed be your Holy name Lord! Thank You Jesus! ‘Alleluia!’ In Jesus Mighty name we worship! (Amen!)

 

The Lord said there is someone here tonight He said I should tell you that your rain will begin to fall from now. (Amen!)

 

Father we just want to bless Your Name! Thank You for what you have already done. We thank You for what You will yet to do. Without any doubt You are the Almighty. You are the Great Provider, Great Deliverer, Great Defender, Great Saviour, Great Healer, miracle working God! Glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders … Your name is Wonderful, Your name is Counselor, Your name is Mighty God, You are the everlasting Father, You are the Prince of Peace, You are the Alpha, You are the Omega, You are the Beginning, You are the Ending, You are the One who is, You are the One who was, You are the One who is to come; You are the Almighty, glory be to Your Holy name. (Amen!)

 

Father, tonight release the rain. (Amen!) Showers of blessing send them down now! Glorify Your Holy name today and at the end of everything take all the glory! Give us the blessings in Jesus Mighty name we pray! Amen!. (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (‘Alleluia!’)

 

If you are ready for your miracle, shout ‘Alleluia!’ (‘Alleluia!’) You are going to help me encourage about seven people around you. You are going to shake hands with them and tell each one. ” Tonight, tonight, there is a miracle with your name on it!” Tell at least seven people. Tonight, unfailingly there is a miracle with your Name on it. God bless you, you may be seated.

 

They ask me to announce for those of you who are still arriving on the campground that there is no use trying to come near the auditorium; there’s not even room to move on the roads. So find wherever you can find a loudspeaker. I want you to know as long as you can hear us tonight you will receive your miracle. (Amen!) The Bible says, ‘God sent His words and He healed them.’ The Centurion said, “Just speak a word and I know my child and my servant will be healed.” So wherever you are, just make sure you are where you can hear us clearly and I can assure you, your miracle will get to you there because there is no room for movement near the auditorium at all. It’s no use trying because there is no room, no room at all … glory be to God.

 

They just handed me a little piece of paper, that up to 10pm tonight, the number of babies that have been born during this Convention is 48 (Amen!): 27 boys, 21 girls! (Amen!) Let the boys shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) And let the girls shout ‘Glory!’ (Glory!) That’s all right! I know we are in for a very glorious night. We will want to start in our usual way by the grace of God, and let the Holy Spirit take it from there and turn us whichever direction He wants us to go.

 

Two years ago, some people came here trusting God for the fruit of the womb. By the time they came last year, they were already pregnant but the babies had not come. So we said they should hold on till the babies arrive. The babies have arrived now and we want to bless them tonight. Then last year some people came here trusting God for the fruit of the womb. Their own children have arrived now. So we will want them to bring the children forward too so that we can bless them. And those who came last year and are already pregnant now they should wait till the babies have arrived. And I will bless those children next year if the Lord tarries. So if you are in these two categories: you came two years ago, you returned last year with pregnancy, the babies have arrived now or you came last year trusting God for the fruit of the womb and the babies have arrived now, bring the babies forward so we can bless them.

 

Don’t be surprised that some people are just looking at you and are not dancing with you. The Bible says we should rejoice with those who rejoice and the African elders said that those who want to have children will rejoice with those who have children. So go ahead! I am going to have children so I will rejoice. So those who want also to rejoice with us join us as we rejoice. Go ahead please!

 

Alleluia! All right! Glory be to God, They said some mothers and their children are seated very, very far away. That it is just impossible for them to get through the crowd to reach the alter. Wherever you are, when we are praying just lay hands on your child and the prayers will reach you there. We have a very big problem tonight. I think from next year, the Holy Ghost night of the Convention will be held at the Congress venue. (Amen!) The Almighty, the Controller of the weather will make sure as He has been doing, He will do it again.

 

Now how many of you have twins? 1,2,3,4… I can’t even count! Glory be to God! Is there any one with triplets? Triplets? Three? Over there…now I know there is one who had four. Where is that fellow? Can you find your way? Are you around? Keep coming. I know there is one before. If you can find your way through the crowd just keep on coming, come with the four. I have seen the four; I have seen them, three boys and one girl. So come! So if you can find your way through the crowd before we finish, just keep coming! I saw them with my own eyes, so I know about them.

 

Now, among those of you who are here I know – at least – there is someone who – I know this particular case -, the fellow had been barren for 18 years. Now if you are that fellow, where are you? Find your way! Find your way! Find your way to the front. Glory be to God! Just stand there. I will come to you. Is there any one who was trusting the Lord for the fruit of the womb for more than 18 years? Okay, so the people with the record this time are those who have been trusting God for 18 years. And then there is this lady from Port Harcourt I was talking about yesterday, who when the baby was delivered a tortoise came and a scorpion came with the baby. Where is the woman? Who is the woman? She is coming? That one should come also.

 

We just want to praise the Almighty God, if we don’t do any thing other than praise God tonight, He will do marvelous things. How many of you believe we should praise God tonight? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (‘Alleluia!’)

 

Give testimony about what happened ….

 

Praise God! – The testimony of this woman is that within the 18 years she was waiting for the fruit of the womb, she made the home of the herbalist her inhabitation and she ate medicine, concoction of different types for good 7 years At that particular time she has not known Jesus, but at a point in time, she got saved and was trusting God, and within a short time, God answered her prayer and this is the evidence of the answered prayer. Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (‘Alleluia!’)

 

Yes ma! Very briefly!

 

Praise the Lord! – I don’t know how to express it, I don’t know what to say but it is the miracle of God! In my 18 years experience in barrenness … I really suffered, running from place to place, looking for peace. I have no peace. Every day in my house I will lament. I will call. I prayed calling on God to help me. Most times when they call us to come to Lagos I will go – even alone I will go. I will come here always looking for the fruit of the womb. I have none till 18 years but when the miracle of God came, really it did not waste time. There is someone that come to me in my house that I should come that there was a place that she went and it worked for her that I should come. I said no I will not go anywhere again; there is no place I have not gone, so I will not go again. The lady really begged me! She came to me three days then the next four days I followed the lady to that doctor. Then when I reached that place the doctor looked at me and said Okay, there is no problem. I stayed there and the doctor started giving me treatment. Moreover someone that is the enemy just go to the doctor that he should not treat me again, that there is no where I have not gone, that this thing cannot happen; but the doctor said he will try, so he continued to treat me and it did not waste time I just took in. Praise the Lord!

 

Let’s hear one from the lady from Port Harcourt I believe…Yes, go ahead. Quickly 2 minutes…

 

…. Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) You already heard the testimony of a woman that delivered a baby that tortoise and scorpion followed. We just want to bring her for evidence. She has now given her testimony. Praise the Lord!

 

Now I know that all of you here you have a story to tell but your story now is a story of joy and that joy will never end. (Amen!) I want everybody to please stretch your hands towards all these children and pray for them

 

that sickness will run away from these children. (Amen!) Death will run away from these children. (Amen!). Our joy over these children will last forever! (Amen!) Please help me pray for them for one minute. Pray for all these children, that God will bless them, that no sickness will come near them, that demons will stay away from them, death will stay away from them, that our joy over these children will last forever! Pray for them brethren! Pray for every one of them – those who can come here and those who can’t find there way forward. That wherever they are God will lay His hands on them and bless them and let it be well with them, and anoint them, so that they will grow up and become very useful vessels in the hand of God. That our joy over these children will last forever. In Jesus Mighty name we pray. (Amen!)

 

Father we want to bless Your name for all these Your children. Thank You for bringing them into the world. Thank You for putting an end to the tears of their parents. Accept our thanks in Jesus name. (Amen!)

 

Almighty God bless these children! (Amen!) Keep them healthy! (Amen!) Keep them strong! (Amen!) Keep demons away from them! (Amen!), keep death away from them! (Amen!) . Let our joy over them last forever (Amen!) and let them grow up to become useful vessels (Amen!) unto You until they meet You in Your Kingdom. (Amen!) Let them remain steadfast! (Amen!) In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen!

 

Congratulations, now you can dance back to your place.

 

Because the whole place is so tight tonight we will give you a very special opportunity next month Holy Ghost Service, so all of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, next month will be a very special Holy Ghost Service for you. We will continue with our series, “Reversing the Irreversible”. But we will pray specially and lay hands on you those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, one by one. Next month, if it is going to take us all night just to attend to those of you who are looking unto God for the fruit of the womb, so shall it be. It will be a very special Holy Ghost Service for those trusting God for the fruit of the womb. But I believe that even some of you, before you come next month, you will already be pregnant. So the laying on of hands next month for you will be to make sure nothing will tamper with the baby, so that it will be born normally.

 

We have a home here, where we keep some special children. We don’t call them motherless babies because they where born by mothers, and these people who are here are not just those who have lost their mothers or been abandoned by their parents. There are some of these children that the mothers were mentally not all right and we have to take the children from them so that they don’t kill the children.

 

And some other special cases – we have a home for them here, several of them and now they have a choir. Their choir will sing for you. Let’s just give them few minutes to praise the Almighty God for taking them from what would have been a certain death and improving their lot, through to the end. And you will become very useful instruments in His hands in Jesus name! The children from Heritage home. Let’s give the Lord a big hand for that!

 

Then some eight years or so ago, we found that the problems of area boys in Lagos was becoming very serious. And some people were giving various suggestions on what to do to them. Some said kill them, some said throw them into the ocean, but we saw that Jesus Christ can do something about them, so we began an Outreach to these so called area boys and by the grace of God, the Almighty God saved the souls of many of them. So we started a church for them and we began to call them ‘Jesus boys’.

 

Now not only these people… we began an Outreach to those who were drug addicts. The Almighty God stepped in and things began to happen. We extended our Outreach not just to area boys, drug addicts but to prostitutes. We were going to preach to them at the street corners where they normally wait for boys and we ended up starting a church in a brothel. God began to move very mightily. Tonight these people will sing to you but we will hear from one, two or three of them about certain things that had happened. Also at the same time, we were ministering to prisoners who were already in prison. And there is a very, very senior Pastor here today who got converted in the prison. We will hear from that Pastor. We will hear from an area boy who had already become our missionary to Norway.

 

To them that fear His name shall the Son of Righteousness arise with healings in His wings. The Son of Righteousness is about to rise now with healings in His wings. The Almighty God wants to heal someone now.

If you are that one let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (‘Alleluia!’) The man who spoke before has already told us that the Almighty God can heal you physically, He can heal you socially and He can heal you spiritually! The one who took the offering has told you that God can heal you financially and I want you to know that God can also heal you maritally. I want you to know that any sickness no matter how long it has been, that God is here tonight. God will heal you in Jesus’ Name. I want you to know that the Almighty God can heal you mentally.

 

So I am saying to you, those of you who are students who have been failing their exams, in the mighty name of Jesus, you will never fail again! (Amen!) And those of you who have been doing one exams for six times, seven times, this time you are going to succeed in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

 

Those of you who have been looking for future partner and up till now you haven’t got one – next year you will come back with your husband. (Amen!) And those of you who had been trusting God for the fruit of the womb, just tell the Almighty God tonight, whether you want 2 boys or a boy and a girl because there will be set of twins a-plenty next year in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

And those who have been worried about your future, wondering what is your future going to look like – because you came tonight, your tomorrow will be all right. Whatever it is the enemy had planned for you, if the enemy will not repent, the enemy himself will carry his burden today. (Amen!) All that God requires from you is that you fear Him. If only you will fear the Lord, depart from evil, begin to live a life of holiness …. Every aspect of your life will receive the healing touch of God tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

If you believe you are the one God is talking to let me hear you say ‘Amen!’. (Amen!)

 

We are going to pray now, so you better wake-up now because this is the moment we have been waiting for. if you are expecting a very long sermon, I have already preached the sermon I am going to preach. I just want God to move in the life of people here tonight, and I want you to stand on your feet right now.

 

The first prayer as usual is the one that will draw the attention of God to you in particular. Somebody else may not need a miracle, I need and I am the one who will tell God ’I need a miracle.’ So you are going to call on the Almighty God with a shout so that He will know you are here! let me hear you now shout a big ‘Alleluia!’ to God……(‘Alleluia!’) Come on don’t stop yet! Keep on calling! Let Him hear your shout!, let Him hear your shout!, let Him hear you!, let Him hear your shout!, let Him hear your shout!, let Him know that you are here … that you are expecting a healing from Him tonight!. Let Him know that you expect Him to move on your behalf tonight! Let Him hear you! let Him hear you! Let the Almighty God hear you! If you don’t praise Him He can’t do something in your life!, Let Him hear you!, others might not be interested, you are!, let Him hear you!. Let Him hear your praise! let Him hear your praise!, let Him hear your shout of alleluia!, let Him hear you!. Let Him know that you appreciate Him! lift your voice to Him, shout loud and clear, let Him know that you are here and you are expecting Him to manifest His glory in your life!. Let Him know! let Him know!, just let Him know that you are here!. Let Him know you are here! Let Him know you are here! Let Him know you are here! Thank you Father! In Jesus Mighty name we worship! (Amen!)

 

Now you are going to pray and you lift your voice to Him and say Father…. I mean loud and clear – Father!

Now, I want you to cry unto Almighty God and say, Father, every garment of suffering, remove it from my life tonight! Let’s talk to the Almighty God! Every garment of suffering in whatever form, remove it from my life tonight! Remove it from my life tonight! Every garment of suffering, remove it from my life tonight! I know you can heal physically, I know you can heal spiritually, I know you can heal financially, I know you can heal mentally! I know you can heal maritially! I know you can heal socially! Every garment of suffering remove it from my body tonight! Remove it from my body tonight! Almighty God remove it from my body tonight! Remove it from my body tonight! King of glory remove it from my body tonight! Remove it from my life tonight! Right now Lord as I am praying, every garment of suffering remove it from my body tonight!

Every garment of suffering remove it from my body tonight! Remove it from my body tonight! Remove it from my body tonight! Remove it from my body tonight! Remove it from my body tonight! Thank you Father! In Jesus mighty name we pray! (Amen!)

You are going to lay your hand on your own head now and believe me honestly something special is about to happen. And you are going to pray and say

Father, don’t let my head refuse its miracle! Let’s talk to the Almighty God. Father, don’t let my head refuse its miracle! I am calling on you tonight Lord, don’t let my head refuse its miracle. Right now Daddy, I pray. Don’t let my head refuse its miracle! Don’t let my head refuse its miracle! Tonight, Lord God Almighty don’t let my head refuse its miracle! Lord God Almighty, don’t let my head refuse its miracle! Almighty God, right now as I pray. Don’t let my head refuse its miracle! Don’t let my head refuse its miracle! Intervene in my affairs now! Don’t let my head refuse its miracle! Don’t let my head refuse its miracle! Lord God Almighty, don’t let my head refuse its miracle! Thank you my Father! In Jesus mighty name we pray! (Amen!)

Now the way is open and I want you to cry to God….

 

Father, even if there are only ten people that will get a breakthrough tonight, let me be one of them! Let’s cry to the Almighty God – Even if only ten people will get a breakthrough tonight – let me be one of them! Even if only ten people will get a breakthrough tonight – let me be one of them! Let me be one of them! Even if only ten people will get a breakthrough tonight – let me be one of them! Let me be one of them! Let me be one of them!

Almighty God let me get my breakthrough tonight let me get my breakthrough tonight! Almighty God let me get my breakthrough tonight! My Father and my God – let me get my breakthrough tonight to the glory of Your name! in Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Father! Any one who will stand between me and my miracles tonight, let him or her become my stepping stone to glory. Let’s call on the Almighty God! Tonight Lord, Anyone who will stand between me and my miracle, let him or her become my stepping stone to glory! Let him or her become my stepping stone to glory! Thank you Father! Blessed be your name. Thank you Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

 

The word of God says, from the days of John the Baptist, the kingdom of God suffereth violence and the violent take it by force. Tonight now you will command, in the mighty Name of Jesus that every door that the enemy has shut against you be broken open now! Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God! Every door that the enemy has shut against me, I command you in the name of Jesus, open now! Open now! Open now! Open now! Open now!

Two more prayers only and then God will do whatever He wants to do. The first prayer,

 

Father tonight let me have a giant testimony! Let’s talk to the Almighty God. Father tonight let me have a giant testimony! Right now Lord, let me have a giant testimony! Almighty God, even now as I am praying let me have a giant testimony! , let me have a giant testimony tonight! , Let me have a giant testimony tonight! , Let me have a giant testimony tonight! Almighty God, this very moment, let me have a giant testimony! My testimony tonight must be a giant one. You are the one who can reverse the irreversible; You are the one who can do the impossible. , Let me have a giant testimony! , Let me have a giant testimony! Almighty God, let me have a giant testimony tonight! Thank you Father! blessed be your Holy name!, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

The last prayer is your own. You know where you are sick. Whether it is body or finances or mental or marital or spiritual. Talk to God about it now; he is here right now! Ready to answer your prayers. Open your mouth now and talk to the Almighty God! Talk to Him now!

 

Father heal my body! heal my soul! Heal my spirit! Heal me mentally! Heal me financially! Heal me emotionally! Heal me all round oh! Lord. Lord God Almighty This is the hour I have been waiting for! Heal me now Lord! Heal me now! Almighty God Heal me right now! Heal my body! heal my soul! Heal my spirit! Heal me mentally! Heal me academically! Heal me financially! heal me all round oh! Lord. King of Glory heal me right now! ! Heal my family! Heal my ministry! Heal my business! Heal my town! Heal my nation, Lord, heal me now! Heal me right now! King of Glory, Heal me now! Ancient of Days, Heal me now! Father, Heal me now! Almighty God, Heal me now! Heal me now, Heal me now! Heal me now! Father, Heal me now! Ancient of Days, Heal me now! Heal me now! Thank you Father! Blessed be your Holy name! Heal me now! Heal me thoroughly! Heal me completely! Heal me body, soul and spirit!! Destroy every yoke in my life tonight. You the Son of Righteousness arise for me now – bring healings in your wings – healings for my body, healings for my soul, healings for my spirit, healings for my finances, healing for my family….. Healings Lord, all round. Give me all round healing today! . Thank you Jesus! Blessed be the name of the Lord! Thank You! Blessed be Your Name Lord! Thank You! Thank You Jesus! in Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

Now Daddy says, He will heal as we praise. I want the band to please come quickly. That’s His promise now. So we are going to praise Him. As we are praising Him He will begin to heal. That is what He told me just now: I will heal as they praise. So get ready now. As we begin to praise Him, you will see miracles happening. And the miracle will begin with me. I mean the miracles will start right here! I say it is going to start right here. It’s going to start with me!

 

All right are you ready? We want songs we can dance to because as we praise Him He’s going to heal…..

 

I will worship my God forever, I will worship Him everyday…….

 

Amen! Now Daddy says 5,000 now have been healed, Amen! But then what is 5,000 in this crowd? Even though among those who have been healed – somebody who had had hernia for several years,

 

you have been healed now. Somebody with a booming sound in your head, so loud that it deafens you, that sound is gone and gone forever. (Amen!)

 

Someone your eyes have not been focusing in spite all the doctors have done. You can focus now very accurately. There is someone with a very stiff back, very, very painful back. You can check – everything is all right now.

 

To me, as far as I’m concerned that is just a drop in the bucket. Let’s praise Him more. He is going to do more. Come on, come on, come on! …..

 

Thank you Lord! There is one lame man who is already walking. I told you if you praise Him, He will do more than you are thinking. We don’t need to lay hand on you before God will do the miracle. That’s one man already walking there! That is the beginning! And now

 

Daddy says the number of those healed has increased to 15,000! (Amen!) And one of the people has his manhood restored. There is someone who has lost hearing on one ear and the ear is hearing clearly now! God said there somebody who has a growth inside the neck and the growth has disappeared now! So let’s praise Him more, and more lame people will begin to jump and will begin to walk now! The blind will see. Go ahead, let’s praise God! ……When Jesus says Yes, nobody can say No… Glory be to God.

 

Now those of you who brought people, those who could not walk at all – you bring them forward now. The power of God is here very strongly now. And those who can walk let them get up and begin to walk. This is the day that the Lord has made and He is going to surprise you tonight.

Now when you are lining them ushers make sure when you fill one line then you give gap for the second line, so that when people go to lay hands on them there’ll be room for them to move. Do I get some senior ushers to help me organize that? Give room! Give room between the first line and the second line so that those who want to pray for them will have room to move.

 

And if you are so far away that you can’t get here, wherever you are just lay your hand on your own head, as we are praying here the miracles will touch you there too. In the mean time we will continue to praise Him and the healings will continue……..

The Lord said there is someone here tonight you came weeping. You will go back rejoicing! (Amen!) Thank You Lord!

 

Father we want to bless Your Name. Thank You for being so good! For being so kind! For being so wonderful! Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You for loving us! For saving our soul! Thank You for what You did last month! Thank You for Your Convention! Thank You for a new beginning! Accept our thanks in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Tonight we want to thank You for January. We want to thank You for February. We want to thank You for March. We want to thank You for April. We want to thank You for May. We want to thank You for June. We want to thank You for July. We want to thank You for August. And now we want to thank You for September. Glory be to Your holy Name, Lord! (Amen!). Father glory be to Your holy Name! Tonight Father surprise us! (Amen!) Save souls! (Amen!) Heal the sick! (Amen!) Set the captives free! (Amen!) Fill the empty! (Amen!) Glorify Your Name! Reverse the irreversible! Father reverse the irreversible! Almighty God reverse the irreversible! And take all the glory Lord! And give us all the blessings! in Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!). Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

 

If you are the one who will go home rejoicing shout ‘Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

 

Now I want you to help me prophesy to seven people. At least seven. Shake hands with them and tell them: I will rejoice with you soon. I will rejoice with you soon. I will rejoice with you soon. I will rejoice with you soon. I will rejoice with you soon. I will rejoice with you soon. Alleluia! If you believe that put your hands together for the Almighty God and make a joyful noise unto the Almighty God! Alleluia! Glory be to God! Thank You Jesus! God bless you, you may be seated!

 

We have a wonderful night ahead of us in Jesus’ Name (Amen!) As we continue with our series reversing the irreversible. Tonight is part three but it is just the conclusion of the introduction. We will begin the real topic as from next month in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

Gen. 17:1: And when Abram was ninety years old and nine. The Lord appeared to Abram and said unto Him. I am the Almighty God. I am the Almighty God. Walk before me and be thou perfect. We have been talking about reversing the irreversible. We have talked about a God who can reverse the irreversible. And we have told you that He can reverse the irreversible, because number one He is the Alpha. He is the One who has no beginning but who was at the beginning of every beginning. And therefore we said He can go into your past and change every thing that had happened to you in the past. That He can go into your mother’s womb and change things there. So that by the time you are born you are no longer the person you used to be. He can go to your day of naming ceremony and change your Name from there. O yes, He can go to the past and uproot your mountain even before they were formed. He is also the One who can reverse the irreversible because He is the Omega, He is the end of all ending. So He can go into your future and change things there. For example those of you that people had thought would die childless. He can go into your future and put four children there. I didn’t hear ‘Amen’ to that! (Amen!)

 

So He can reverse the irreversible because He is also the I am that I am. He is the God of the present day. He can change things today. So He can change your past. He can change your future. He can change your present. But then today we want to go a step further and show you that He can reverse the irreversible; because He is the Almighty. The Almighty God. The one whose name is Jehovah El-Shaddai. The God that is more than enough. The one that will be called the inexhaustible ocean. Who has enough water to change every desert to blossoming ground. As a matter of fact the Bible scholars tell us that the name Jehovah El-Shaddai or the Almighty God actually means ‘a woman with big breasts.’ In order words our God is like a mother’s milk that no child can ever exhaust. You can suck and suck and suck until you, that happen to be very tiny, becomes very big. And by the time you said you want no more there will still be sufficient for another child. So God is going to solve the problem of somebody here tonight. And after He has solved the problem of every body there will still be enough power to solve the problem of any one else. Tell your neighbour, “I say I will rejoice with you soon. And you will rejoice with me soon too!”

 

He is Jehovah El-Shaddai means He has enough power to do absolutely anything. His Name is Almighty God because He has all powers Ps. 62:11It say’s God has spoken once and twice have I heard it that power belongs to God. Power belongs to God. In Jeremiah 32:27 He said I am the God of all flesh, is there any thing too hard for me? Whenever God asks a question it is not that He doesn’t know the answer because He knows all things. When God asks a question it is like a teacher asking his student. When the teacher says to the student what is 2 + 2? It is not that the teacher does not know the answer. It is that the answer is already in the book that the student had already studied.

 

When He was asking Jeremiah, “I am the God of all flesh, is there any thing too hard for me?” He knows that Jeremiah knows that in Genesis God had asked the same question before from a woman called Sarah who was ninety years old and God said you are going to have a baby and Sarah laughed. And God said to Sarah “Is there anything too hard for the Lord?” And within a year, within a year the answer became clear; that there was nothing too hard for the Lord. And there is somebody here tonight God is asking you … “is there anything too hard for me?” Let me hear the answer loud and clear.

 

He has enough power to do absolutely anything so that all He has to do is just to speak. Just speak and every thing will be settled. Ps. 33:8-9 He said let all the earth fear before Him for He spake and it is done. And He has already spoken tonight. He said somebody came here weeping: he will go home rejoicing. (Amen!) I have already received that one. I have received it for you. I have received it for me. I know that by the time we finish today somebody is going to shout for joy. (Amen!)

 

That’s what the Centurion said in Matt. 8:5-13 he said, “You don’t need to come to my house. You don’t need to lay hands on my child! Speak the word only.” Is there somebody here today who will say, “God just speak one word? Just speak one word. Just speak one word.” And He will speak to you tonight in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

I am going to give you a lot of testimonies tonight if the Almighty God allows. Some of you probably heard the story before. I was a lecturer then at the University of Ilorin. And then one of my sons came, to help me fix the electricity in the quarters they allocated to me. And when he finished I said, “How much am I going to pay?” He said sir, “I won’t ask you for any money, but I have no money myself. I need money to travel back to Lagos. Just give me enough money for transport back to Lagos, and pray for me.” I gave him the money.” He said, “pray!” I said, “There is no need. You are already blessed. Just go … you are already blessed. You did this for me as a child of God … forget it … go home.” I came back to Lagos four weeks later. Four weeks later and he has already bought a brand new car. (Amen!) I am saying to somebody here tonight you are already blessed. (Amen!) I better hear your ”Amen’ loud and clear. (Amen!)

 

He said “I am the God of all flesh, is there any thing too hard for me?” What was He saying here? He is saying all flesh must obey me. All flesh must obey me; because I am the God of all flesh. And I am saying to somebody here today. “Your head will obey God.” (Amen!) Your eyes will obey God. (Amen!) Your brain will obey God. (Amen!) Your womb will obey God. (Amen!) Your backbone will obey God. (Amen!) If you believe that let me hear you shout ‘Amen’ loud and clear. (Amen!)

 

He said I am the God of all flesh. How come He is the God of all flesh? Because He made all flesh. John 1:1 and 3. It said: In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God; by Him were all things made. And there was nothing that was not made by Him.” It is God who made your womb. That womb will obey God tonight. (Amen!) He made your legs. Those legs will walk tonight. (Amen!) He made your eyes, the eyes will see tonight. (Amen!) He made the ears, the ears will hear tonight. (Amen!) And He made your tongue – your tongue will speak tonight. (Amen!)

 

Birds obey Him. 1 Kings 17:2-7 He sent birds on an errand. And for one year they kept on obeying Him. He asked them to take food to His servant and told them not to eat the food on the way. And they never missed the road for a day. Your miracle will not miss road today in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Fish obey Him. He told a fish in Jonah 1:17, He told him to swallow Jonah but not to digest him. The fish obeyed him. In Jonah 2:10, He told the fish to go and vomit Jonah but he must not vomit him in the river because He knows that Jonah cannot swim and the fish obeyed Him accurately. In Matt. 17:24-27 He told a fish: swallow a gold coin .. and he swallowed the gold coin. And He told the fish a hook is coming in you must be the first one to swallow the hook so that Peter can get money out of the mouth.

 

He saw that today I am going to stand before you and He decided to take care of me then; so that I can come to you and tell you about this testimony.

 

And all of a sudden out of nowhere I just saw a little white dog. And it began to wag its tail as if to say follow me. Then I followed the dog and the dog lead me until I got to my sisters farm. When I got there I entered into the hut then my sister was surprised. How did you get here? Who showed you the way? I said I was following a dog. She said which dog? There is no dog in this farm. And we came out there was no dog. That God who sent a dog to lead a little child out of the jungle, He is going to lead you to your miracle tonight. (Amen!) I said He will lead you to your miracle tonight. (Amen!) Thank you Father!

 

The Lord said there is someone here tonight. Your voice had been fading. Your voice had been fading. Your voice had been fading. And you are worried about something in your throat. He asked me to tell you. You can shout. You can shout. You can sing because your voice is restored now. (Amen!) Thank you Father. Glory be to God!

 

The Lord said there is someone here; you can’t swing your body because of acute waist pain. He ask me to tell you. You can swing as much as you can, because that pain is gone forever now. (Amen!) Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

 

He said: I am the God of all flesh, is there anything too hard for me? Fish obey Him because fish is flesh. Birds obey Him because bird is flesh. Lions obey Him. You know the story of Daniel very well because lion is flesh. Lion is flesh.

 

I think somebody will have to come and help this brother tonight. One of you people come. Come and help daddy. Let them come and help. Come hurry up; come. Glory be to God. He has been doing this thing now for so many years. I think we should give him a big hand. He is doing a great work. Give the Lord a big hand. Glory be to God! You think interpretation is an easy thing. Come on give the Lord a big hand for our Pastor. Glory be to God!

 

Lion is flesh. I hope I wouldn’t have to change another one tonight. May the Almighty God lay hands on all my interpreters. It is not their fault, the anointing is so heavy tonight. And because flesh must obey Him that is why every womb that is considered dead must come alive tonight. (Amen!) Every tube that has been blocked must be unblocked tonight. (Amen!) Every fibroid must dissolve tonight. (Amen!)

2 Kings 4:8-17 tells us about the story of the Shunammite woman. When the man of God said to her: you are going to have a child. She said: don’t deceive me. I am already too old. The man of God said I am not listening to what you are saying. The God of all flesh has spoken. What has been said will come to pass. And I am speaking to somebody here tonight. It doesn’t matter what the doctors have said, nine months from now – One baby on your right; one baby on your left. So shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

One of my pastors – he wasn’t a pastor then – came to my office. He said: Sir, I need a child. I have been married for so long. I have no child. I said, Is that so? What do you want to start with – boy or girl? Ah he said “Boy”, but then he looked at me and said, “You haven’t even asked question. You just said what do you want?” I said “Yes, What do you want?” He said, “Boy.” Nine months later the boy came. I am asking somebody here tonight: What do you want first? Boy or girl? A boy and a girl? Two boys and one girl? Three boys and one girl? So shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

The God of all flesh, the one who is called the Almighty, even ordinary dust obeys Him. Ordinary dust obeys Him. He was that powerful. InGenesis 2:7 the Bible said He made an image out of the mud of the ground. And He breathed into it and the mud became a living soul. You were mud before but He breathed into the mud and the mud became a living soul. All He has to do today, is to breath into you again. Breath into your body! Breath into your marriage! Breath into your business! Breath into your brain! Breath into your ministry! And every thing will come alive again. And so shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

It doesn’t matter how bad the situation. Even if everything had reduced to dust. All He has to do is breath. At least some of you have heard the testimony of a man who left his wife who had already four children and went to join a woman who already had five children for five different men. And the wife came, “Please pray for me. My husband left me with four children, pray that he will come back.”

 

O Glory be to God! The Lord said there is a woman here … your husband has given you a letter of divorce; Daddy asked me to tell you, He has torn it. My Daddy said it is already torn!

 

Now, so this woman said pray for me that my husband may come back. I said don’t worry yourself, he will come and beg you. He will come and beg you. “No, no, no I’m not asking him to come and beg. Just ask him to come back!” I said just take the word of God for it. And the Almighty God started. He started a quarrel between the husband and this strange woman and during the quarrel, the strange woman said to him, “Stupid man. If you are not stupid, you left your wife and four children at home, and you come and live with me with five children for five different men. Stupid man!” And so the man said “that’s true O, I must be stupid!” and so he ran back home. When he knocked at the door and the wife opened the door. He fell on his face and said take me back. Every thing the devil has stolen from you shall be restored by force in Jesus Name! (Amen!) I said it shall be restored by force in Jesus Name! (Amen!) All the years that you have lost; all the years that you have wasted – my Father shall reverse the irreversible for you tonight. (Amen!) Thank You Father.

 

Ordinary dust obeys Him. That is why the earth trembles whenever God is present. Ps. 114:7. It said earth tremble before your Maker. Tonight the ground is going to tremble, because the Almighty God is here. (Amen!) Whenever God is present, there is always an earthquake. And when the earthquake comes yokes will be destroyed. (Amen!) Prison doors will be opened. (Amen!)

 

You know Acts 16:25-26. Paul and Silas were in prison singing and praising God and suddenly God came. That’s why we are going to praise God tonight. Let me hear somebody shout Alleluia! just once. (Alleluia!) And when God arrived, there was an earthquake and the yokes where broken. Prison doors were open. All those yokes that the enemy had used to bind your womb, they are going to be opened tonight. (Amen!) All of you who had been locked up in prison, that the enemy had said you will not prosper…. the prison doors will open tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

 

When God appears on the scene the earth trembles. Like in Numbers 16:25-35. The Bible tells us that some people rose up against Moses. And they said “who made you our Priest? I mean look at you, you want to turn the whole thing to family business. Aaron your brother is now the Priest. Miriam your sister is the choir mistress. And you now, you are the Prophet. Are you the only one who hear from God? We too can hear from God!” Moses said “I didn’t make myself prophet. It is God who called me.” They said “God called us too.” So Moses said “God did you hear? “And God said “I heard, don’t worry I will deal with them.” All those who said you will not reach your goal; God will deal with them tonight. (Amen!) Everyone of them! So God said to Moses make sure you stand far from them. And tell all those who are on your side to come to your side. Those who are on the side of the enemy, let them stay with them. God said: By the time I finish with them, there will be no trace of them. God spoke to the earth and said “Earth open your mouth! Swallow these people! And then close up again!”. Every demon that has been blocking your way; the ground will swallow them today in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

You probably have heard the story of the man. We were still in the old auditorium. We had Holy Ghost Service like this.

 

Thank you Father. Somebody said, somebody had sharp pain in the eyes. They said that is gone now and it won’t return.

 

There was this young man; they just sacked him in his place of work – for doing nothing. And he tried and tried he couldn’t get back. And we were there, I remember, in the old auditorium. And the word of God came and said “There is somebody here, He said somebody close to you is about to die. He said don’t be sad because he is the one blocking your way.” I think a week later the Father of that boy died. A week later they recalled him to his place of work and promoted him. Anyone! Any relative no matter how close that is blocking your way God will deal with the fellow tonight. (Amen!) If you believe that, let me hear you say Amen loud and clear. (Amen!)

 

The Almighty God, Jehovah El-Shaddai has so much power in His breathe that when He breathes on the ocean the ocean will freeze. Exodus 15:8, it said He breathed on the sea and the sea congealed. It became like ice. When He breathes on the restless sea, the restless sea freezes. that is why the hypertension in your body, is going to freeze tonight. (Amen!) That is why, whatever it is that is walking up and down in your stomach that is not allowing you to conceive is going to freeze tonight. (Amen!) That is why whatever it is that is causing trouble in your life generally is going to freeze tonight. (Amen!)

 

It is not just only the sea that can freeze when He breathes. All He has to do is speak one word, and every storm will fall asleep. You remember inMark 4:35-41 Jesus said to the disciples let’s go to the other side. And they got into a boat and He laid on a pillow and fell asleep because He had been preaching to a large crowd of people. And as they were going there was a storm, and the water began to fill the boat. The disciples were fishermen, they knew how to deal with storms so they began to bail out the water but at a stage they found that this thing is getting beyond us. Just as you too has been dealing with your problem yourself. You have been talking to doctors. You have been talking to your bank manager. You have been consulting your relative who is a Commissioner. But all of a sudden you discover this storm is about to swallow me. And now you have come to Jesus and He will answer you tonight. (Amen!)

 

So they woke up Jesus, “Master we are about to perish, do something!” He woke up and said “What’s the problem?” “Can’t you see the storm?” He said, ” The storm is no problem. I’m in your boat. I told you we are crossing over to the other side. I didn’t say we are going to the bottom of the sea.” “Eh but look at the storm!”, so He said “peace be still.” And suddenly the storm fell asleep. Every storm in your storm as the Almighty God lives. Whether it is a financial storm! Or marital storm! Or mental storm! Or spiritual storm; shall fall asleep tonight in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Every storm shall fall asleep, (Amen!) because all He needs to speak is one word. Even the wind and the sea obey Him.

 

Some of you probably heard me share the testimony. Years ago, when I use to visit University of Ibadan every month to go and do Bible study in the house of one of our professors. A time came the group began to grow, and the seating room couldn’t contain us any more. So we moved to the backyard. Then one day as we were about to start the programme the rain came. The whole place was filled with cloud and the wind was blowing and we have just settled down in the open. And the sitting room can’t contain us. So they all looked at me and they said what are we going to do? I said the rain wouldn’t disturb us. The rain wouldn’t disturb us. And you know what? it rained everywhere, in the entire campus, but it left the backyard of the Professor. If you don’t believe me, the professor is here. Where are you? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! He is there. Tonight there may be problem everywhere but it won’t come to your house. I didn’t hear you say Amen to that one. (Amen!)

 

Do you know even fire obey Him. When He speaks to fire and say fire you don’t burn. Fire will say “yes sir.” In Daniel 3:24-29, they throw Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego into the burning fiery furnace. And God said to the fire: fire keep quiet! “Ah but God you made me to burn.” Eh and I said now, you don’t burn. I made you, and I command you and you obey me.

 

There are many of us here tonight we have been through fire. All kinds of fire and we are still alive today. Is there anybody like that here at all? Who has been through all kinds of fire and you are still alive today. Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) But because He controls fire, He can also send fire down from open heaven to consume His enemies. If you read 2 Kings 1:9-14 the Bible tells us that Elijah was seating on a hill having a nice time talking to God, and then one king came. He sent fifty soldiers with a Captain. He said go and arrest that man and bring him down. And it says the captain came and he said “Man of God come down. The king says “come down! You call yourself man of God. you think your God can be greater than our king? Come down! The king says come down!” Elijah laughed and said, “are you talking to me?” He said. “yes, “so you even know I’m a man of God.” He said “well, you said so”. He said “okay in that case we better prove it so. If I am a man of God, you and your fifty; I command that you become ashes.” And immediately fire fell and consumed the enemies. All the enemies surrounding you, blocking your way, hindering your progress, making sure you weep every month, all of them shall be consumed by the fire of the Holy Spirit. (Amen!)

 

God can cause fire to burn and He can tell fire not to burn. Let me give you another example, I am telling you stories you can check. We had a programme at UI …. I am giving examples because there are living testimonies here. We had a wonderful programme. Several souls were saved. There was a lot of rejoicing. And so the devil was mad and what did he do? He got some kegs of petrol at night and poured it at the Chapel and set it on fire. And you know when you put fire to petrol what will happen? Nobody was there. we had all gone away. He put fire to petrol, the fire burnt for few seconds and went out. Chapel is still standing there. The petrol was still there on the ground when the people came the following morning. All the fire that the enemy has built round you; they will go out on their own tonight in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

Poison obeyed Him; no matter how strong the poison is it must obey Him. He said so in Mark 16:17-18, He said these signs shall follow them that believe – ” in my Name, they said they shall cast out demons. He said if they drink any deadly thing. He said it wouldn’t hurt them at all.” In other words poison will obey. Some of you have been poisoned; that’s why you are having the problems you are having. Some of you were poisoned in your dream; some of you were poisoned when you thought you were eating with friends, not knowing that the friend has put some thing else in the food. The poison that is in your system shall become ordinary water tonight in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

Eh, let me give you one or two examples. There is a great man of God some of you never heard about. But he was preaching to some soldiers. And they all said to him….. He was preaching in a country where they said they don’t believe in God….. . And they said to him, all right we wouldn’t kill you. Your God said if drink any deadly thing it won’t harm you. That’s all, it is your God who will settle the matter. This is a cup of acid. You drink it, if you don’t die, we will surrender to your God. If you die we are not the one who killed you; it is your God who killed you. He said “no, no, no God didn’t say I’m to go and drink acid.” “Eh no, no, no don’t back out you said the word of God said if you drink any deadly thing; it won’t harm you. Acid is deadly, you drink it, you don’t die then we will follow your God.” So the man of God fell on his knees, “O God I am not trying You. I am not tempting You. These people said whether I like it or not I must drink this acid. Prove Yourself. And if You think this is the best way for me come home it is okay.” So he took the cup, blessed it in the Name of the Lord and drank it. Five minutes, ten, fifteen, one hour and he was healthy. Somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) because while he was praying my Father changed acid to ice water. I am talking of God who can reverse the irreversible! Every poison in your system, every plant that my Father did not plant shall be rooted tonight in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

O glory be to God! (Amen!) So no matter how desperate is your situation. I am telling you that today, that desperate situation shall be reversed in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

This is interesting the Lord said there is somebody here. You said you didn’t like the way your teeth were set. He said He is already rearranging them. He is rearranging them. He is rearranging them. I will like to you see you, when He has finished rearranging.

 

You know the story in 1 Kings 17:8-16. This was the story of a woman whose situation was desperate. Only one meal left! but the Almighty God sent His servant. The servant made a pronouncement and said the irreversible shall be reversed. And said your last shall become your first. And as soon as the man of God spoke every thing changed. Today, every irreversible in your life shall be reversed in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

I remember a doctor, he was a doctor of Agriculture; PhD Agric. But since the day he got his degree, he never got a job. He tried, he did everything – no job. Nobody will employ him. The day they brought him to my office I thought he was a mad man – because things where so bad. He had been worried for so long….. When they told me he had PhD in Agric, I said “are you sure?” Then I told him if you give your life to Jesus He will change things over. He gave his life to Jesus. We prayed a simple prayer. He went back home and some days later the Governor sent for him. He said “we have been looking for you.” “What do you mean you have been looking for me? I have written so many applications. I have walked here everyday!” “Well we’ve been looking for you. We have a good job that only you can do.” So he got a job. six months later he got married. Nine months later he had a set of twins. When the Almighty God step into your situation. All the ground that you have lost, shall be fully restored in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

So He is called the Almighty that’s one of the reasons why He can reverse the irreversible. But He has another name, which will enable you see why He can reverse the irreversible. You will find it in Ps. 91:1 it says he that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. So the One who is called the Almighty is also the One who is called the Most High. So because He is the Almighty ,…. We have told you all the power He can use to solve your problem … But now because He is the Most High, that is really the reason why He can reverse the irreversible because He is bigger than your boss and He is bigger than the boss of your boss.

 

Ecclesiastes 5:8 says He is higher than the highest. And you know what that one means? Because He is higher than the highest, because He is the Most High, it follows that no one can query Him. No one can query Him. Daniel 4:34-35, says nobody can say to Him what doest thou? Our God is the original Majesty. He can say this is what I want to do and there is nobody who can even ask Him, what are you doing? He is the one who can do anything and there is nobody who can hinder Him. In Isaiah 43:13, He said I will work who will let, who will hinder, who will turn me aside. He said what I have determined to do who can prevent me from doing it?

 

You know we normally sing a song, it says O, I am afraid of God, whatever He has decided in His mind to do nobody can hinder Him. How many of you know that song? ………. Now He has made up His mind that somebody is going to have a set of twins (Amen!), nobody can stop Him. I say nobody can stop Him. Job 34:29 says when God gives quietness, nobody can make trouble. The Almighty God is saying that for somebody here tonight your trouble is over. (Amen!) That’s why in Exod. 17:1-6, He said to the rock. “Rock brings forth water.” Out of rock came water. I have news for those of you who still want to have children and yet your menstrual period had already stopped. Tonight God will speak to the rock, and rock will bring forth water. (Amen!) If you believe that, let me hear you say Amen! (Amen!) If He says to a dead womb and say’s produce triplets, nobody can stop it. I say nobody can stop it.

 

Whenever God says to those of you who are destitute – no money to eat; no money for business; everything has come to a stand still. And He speaks a word nobody can stop it. If He says from now on you will continue to prosper. You will continue to prosper. I have told you the story before, this might not be dealing with those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb. But there are some of us who are trusting God for the fruit of money. It is by the special grace of God that you came here tonight because to get the money for transport was difficult. But before the end of the year we shall come in our own car. (Amen!) You better say Amen! loud and clear to that. Some of you will even buy buses so that you won’t come alone.

 

And I ran out of money, and I have made up my mind I will never borrow because the word of God says I should owe no man anything, only love. So the carpenters came to me and the leader came and said, “Sir, we need N204” Naira was strong in those days. So I said okay when I have it I would send for you. He couldn’t believe it. He couldn’t believe it, N204.00 he said that’s all I need sir. I said when I have it I will send for you. He was angry, he thought I was lying. What do you mean you don’t have N204? So I could hear him grumbling as he was going. He is the one who will say the work is not moving fast. Now we asked him for money he is not giving us the money! I didn’t answer because I have nothing to say because I don’t have the money. But after he left I said to God, “You heard him, so do something about it.”

 

And I had prayed all night; so I was tired. So I lay on the settee in my office and I fell asleep, when I woke up, there was a man sitting at the door, eating breakfast.

 

I said ah, this man’s case must be serious. He came and saw me sleeping and sat at the door, that he wouldn’t come out of here today. So I said, “Oga, what’s your problem?” He said I have no problem. He said “I wanted to eat in my house, when God spoke to me and said take the rent that you have just collected. Take it to my son. So I said God I will go; let me finish my breakfast first. God said no. Go now.” He said “so I came, I took my breakfast alone. When I got here I found you sleeping. I said now at least I can eat.” So he gave me the money and I blessed him and he left. When I counted the money it was N1,200.00, So I sent for the carpenter and it was now time for me to show off. So I said, “how much do you say you need by the way?”

 

Today, I’m saying to somebody here, whoever is holding your miracle will not be able to eat until they bring it to you. (Amen!) Because the Most High will command your miracle to go to you tonight in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

A child of God who was burning for Jesus last time we met but somehow, somehow everything has gone down. And the devil was just about to swallow him up. But the Almighty God said “Go!” and I went and from that day everything changed. That man today is one of my senior pastors. I don’t know maybe you want to come and shout Alleluia! so they will know you are here. Come here, come let them see you. God stopped everything I was doing in order to bring this man back to Himself. Just shout one big Alleluia! to say thank you to Jesus. “Praise the Lord, Alleluia!” Every one of you that are on the way to hell today you will go back on the way to heaven in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

Some of you will also remember what happened at Liberty Stadium. When we had the Holy Ghost Night there. It was fantastic, we had a wonderful night. The stadium was full. Outside the stadium was full. The roads were full of people. All kinds of miracle happened and it was time to go. Suddenly God spoke to me and said there was a woman there; who had feathers in her armpit, that I should call her out so that the problem …. I said “O Lord, we have had a wonderful night, let’s go home now. I know you are speaking, you won’t tell me lies. The woman must be there. But how can somebody like that come out? With the television camera every thing on! With this crowd? God let’s go home!” He said, “We are not going. You want this woman to die with her problem?” He said, “no, no, no I want to solve the problem today.” Everybody who has a problem today, problems you can not even tell anybody about, God will stop every thing to solve your problem in Jesus Name! (Amen!) We called her, she came out and God solved the problem. Somebody will go home rejoicing today in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

But there is something else I want to talk about, because He is the Most High, that’s why He can overrule everyone and anyone. When somebody says “This is this’, He can say “No I change it.” In Daniel chapter 3 if you read from verse 24-28, Daniel 3:24-28, the Bible say’s God, through Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego changed the word of the king. The Bible says in the word of the king there is power. But our God is the King of Kings. So He can change whatever the king has said. “I know you said this but I change it.” It doesn’t matter what report has been given to you. It doesn’t what the specialist report had said. I’m telling you today, the One who is the Most High will cancel those evil reports in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

I can feel that the Holy Spirit is about to drive me away from here. So I will just tell you one testimony quickly and then maybe, we will just go ahead and pray. These are testimonies you could check out. Years ago, I can’t remember what they said the Guardian Newspaper did. During the regime of Buhari and Idiagbon and they said Guardian must be closed down. How many of you remember the time? Ah some of you did okay … but at that time I was writing the Sunday school segment of the newspaper. And the editor then was one brother called Gbonuola, he was a worker in the church. He came to me and said, “sir, they want to close down the Guardian.” I said, “don’t worry nobody will close down the Guardian.” He said, “sir, we took Rotimi William as our Lawyer. And after a lot of consideration they said that the best thing is to go and settle this matter quietly. So we have gone to the highest authorities. We have told them we are willing to pay any fine. But they said no, we will close down the Guardian, that the court is going to meet on such and such a date. And the court is going to rule that the Guardian is closed!”

 

I laughed, because I know the God I serve. I told him “Go away. As long as I am still writing Sunday school in that paper, that paper stays.” “Okay, okay you say so.” And they got to court and the court that was suppose to say Guardian is closed, asked them to go and pay a very ridiculously small fine. And today Guardian is still waxing strong. Every report, no matter how high that is coming from, that is contrary against you, I decree in the Name of the Almighty God, that report is cancelled in Jesus Name! (Amen!) I say that report is cancelled in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

 

God has given me the opportunity to share one more testimony and then we will pray. Testimony you can check. An elderly man came to me six years ago and said, “Sir, a prophet said to me 40yrs ago, and this prophet is a prophet of God, because everything he said about me came to pass. And he said to me when I was 44yrs old that when I am 84 years old that’s when I will die.” He said “There are two weeks now to go. And because I know I’m going to die very soon, that’s why I have already moved to the camp. So that when I go I will go on holy ground.” I laughed. “Papa are you ready to go? Are you really ready to go?” He said, “No but the prophet said….” “Are you ready to go?” He said, ’”no.” “Are you willing to serve God now?” He said, “more than ever before.” I said. “in that case whatever that prophet said I cancel it in Jesus Name!” I think 2 months ago papa celebrated 90th year. I don’t know where he is seated in the auditorium but I know he is somewhere here.

 

Whether the doctor said it or the herbalist said it, or the witch said it; or even the prophet said it. If is contrary, if its a negative report I cancel it in Jesus Name! (Amen!) You better say Amen! loud and clear! (Amen!) I didn’t cancel it in my name. I am not canceling it in my name. I am canceling it in the Name of the Most High. The one who can reverse the irreversible. That’s why I’m saying tonight – beginning from today, your joy has just started. (Amen!) The only fellow who can go out of here today without the miracle he or she needs is somebody who refuses to surrender to Jesus. Because if I say I cancelled the evil report against you and you are not a child of God, God will say that one does not apply to you. He will say the miracles I have are for my children not for dogs. And what do you need a miracle for anyway if you don’t belong to Jesus Christ? If you don’t belong to Jesus Christ, you don’t need a miracle what you need is magic. I mean there is a lot of magic all over Nigeria. There are so many magicians on television. Go to them! go and get your magic from them. Oh there are magicians who can heal – but what happens to you after they have healed you? Ask those people that the magicians have healed. They tell you the kind of dreams they have. They tell you that from the day they said they were healed that’s the day they were not able to sleep any more. Oh, you want magic? Go! There are plenty of magicians! But it is the blessing of God that maketh rich and addeth no sorrow with it. It is the miracles of the Almighty God that will come and with no complications at all. So if it is a miracle you need, you have to surrender to Jesus first.

 

So if there is anyone here, that you want to surrender your life to Jesus, don’t waste our time because we want to pray very soon. So if you are here and you are not yet born again and you want to surrender your life to Jesus. You want to say bye, bye to sin. And you want to begin to do the Will of God, then you better come now. I will count up to ten. After that one, I am not going to wait any longer because many of us want to pray now. We know that our God is going to reverse our irreversible tonight.

 

So those of you who want to surrender your life to Jesus begin to come now. As I begin to count …. one, two, three, four, five, the magician will not ask you not to stop sinning. They won’t ask you to surrender your life to Jesus. Oh they will just say come for miracle, come for healing; and then you get there you get what they said they have. And they will give you something else that you will be worshipping for the rest of your life. But if you come to Jesus you must say bye, bye to sin. So when He gives His miracle it will be a miracle that will last forever. Six now, seven, eight, so if you know you want to come, you better move. I know there are some of you coming from a far distance but you have to hurry. Eight now, this is your day of salvation and those of you who have already come, you begin to pray and begin to tell Jesus Christ: Say I have come to surrender my life to You. You are the Most High. There is no one higher than You. That’s why I have come to surrender to You. I know You can do everything, I have come to You tonight. I have come to surrender completely. Forgive my sins, I’m saying bye, bye to sin tonight. I am saying bye bye to the world tonight. Please have mercy on me Lord! Have mercy on me!!” close your eyes and pray now! Call on the Almighty God and those of you who are still coming hurry up, this is nine now, nine because very soon we will begin to pray.

 

And those of us who are already sure of our salvation let’s pray for these people that the Almighty God will be merciful unto them; That the Saviour will save their souls. All of you who want to surrender your life to Jesus, keep coming, come before we finish praying. Just make sure you reach here before we finish praying. Call on Him and say “God have mercy on me. Forgive my sins! save my soul. I will do Your Will from now on. Call on Him now! Call on Him! …….. In Jesus Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

Father we bless Your Holy Name. (Amen!) Thank You because the day of salvation has come for Your children. Accept our thanks in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Your Word says no man can come unto You except the Father draws him. Thank You for drawing these people tonight. (Amen!) I thank You that they have not refused Your drawing. Accept our thanks in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Now my Father and my God, You promised, You promised that whosoever will come unto You, You will in no wise cast out. These your children have come to You now, receive them in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Forgive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Cleanse them in Your blood in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Even as You save their souls, uphold them to the end in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Father when it is time to pray, every thing they ask for tonight give to them in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Thank You my Father. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen! Let somebody shout Alleluia!, Alleluia!

 

I want to rejoice with those of you who come forward because even right now there is joy already going on in heaven. And not only that, from tonight, by the special grace of God I will be praying for you. That’s why I need your names, your prayer requests and your address. The reason I need your address, correct address, is that when I ask God to send your miracle, it will be sent to the address that you put down. So there are some people who will help me get the information. You will see a brother on my left waving a piece of wood. There is another one on my right, waving another. Both of them will lead you to somewhere up there where some pastors are waiting. They will help you collect the name, the address, because God really wants to move mightily tonight. He is already moving. And He will continue to move.

 

Now while we wait for our brothers and sisters, those who have testimony from past Holy Ghost Services. You can now come to the back of the altar now and the pastors will want to listen to your testimonies. So you can come quietly, so that briefly before we go into session of prayer. The rest of us in a very quiet manner, but very intensely, we are going to call on the Almighty God: say: do something new in my life tonight. Do something new in my life. So those who want to give testimony come to the back of the altar and the pastors will attend to you there. Then the rest of us, say: Lord do something new in my life tonight. Answer my prayers like you have never done before. Give me the kind of testimony that you have never given me before. Do something new in my life tonight. Quietly but intensely, let’s call on the Almighty God. Do something new in my life tonight. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Lord. Blessed be your Holy Name Lord. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

Now is time to pray, let’s stand on our feet.

 

Our first prayer is the prayer that will pull down every wall of Jericho. And its one big shout of Alleluia! Let somebody shout Alleluia!! (Alleluia!) Thank You Father!, Amen! Amen!

 

Your next prayer …all the prayers we have tonight, there are about 12 of them…you can pray whichever way you like to pray is up to you. We want to talk to God and say “Father, Father I really need to talk to you tonight. Please stop everything you are doing until you have settled my case.” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God. “Daddy I really need to talk to you tonight…….. In the Name of the Lord. Thank You Lord. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Father, Nigeria is yours and we have no other country. Every enemy of Nigeria this month in particular finish them off. (Amen!) By the time we return in October let there be songs of praise to the glory of Your Name. (Amen!) Thank You Father! Glory be to Your holy Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) If you believe that say ‘Amen’ loud and clear! (Amen!) And then let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Put your hands together for the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

….. those of you who were here during the convention you will remember that around this time. God spoke and said “As they praise me I will heal them.” How many of you remember that? All right, so we began to praise Him and things began to happen. Now tonight God said something to me. He said as a dog dances when it sees its owner so will someone dance tonight because of my intervention. (Amen!) So I think that half a word is a enough for the wise. I am going to suggest to only those of us who feel we can do it. For the next fifteen minutes or so to join the rest of us to praise God, dance before Him and see what He will do. That’s all I want us to do. It is not compulsory if you don’t, if you feel I’m too big to dance for Him or you don’t need an extra miracle just sit down and watch us. But the rest of us who are willing it is time to praise the Lord. I believe that this might become the hour of power. Are we ready to praise Him? All right let’s go ahead!

 

Amen! Can’t we .. may be we should ask Kunle Ajayi to lead us. ….. Amen! now we are not stopping yet. What we want you do is this – as you dance, I want you to check your bodies and as many as received healing tonight, as we dance, you dance forward …. so that we can glorify God together. Let’s go ahead. God we thank You. Alleluia! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Glory be to God! Alleluia! Thank You Jesus! Thank You!

 

We are going to dance a little more because Daddy said there are some debtors here tonight, if they will praise Him. He will help them pay their debts. I think we better dance a little more, lets go ahead, let’s praise Him. Alleluia!, Alleluia! I think we are not going to stop because Daddy said there is someone here tonight the cobweb of the enemy over your business is about to be removed. I think we should dance a little more. Alleluia!, Alleluia! Glory be to God.

 

You are going to do something now before we dance a little more because Daddy said, that whatever prophecy you prophesy to yourself is going to come to pass. I think He has been waiting for us to praise Him like this. So for a moment or two prophesy to yourself now. Mention your name and say Adeboye is going to be well with you. You are going to prosper. You are going to go from strength to strength. From glory to glory! From anointing to anointing! From victory to victory! From joy to joy! From prosperity to prosperity! It is just going to be well with you. It is going to be well with you. All the days of your life it is going to be well with you. So shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!) So shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!) I am saying in the Name of the One who sent me; the one who is the called the Almighty; the One who is the Most high – as you prophesy so shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!) So shall it be! Go ahead! Give the Lord a big hand! Give the Almighty God a big hand! Alleluia! Thank you Jesus! Glory be to God!

 

Now you will dance back to your seats I didn’t know you are going to be these many so I wasn’t really ready. But I’m sure next month He will do greater things and your testimony will last forever. Go ahead let’s praise God as you dance back. Alleluia! So many things happened while we were praising God. But I think from now on we just include that in the Holy Ghost Night.

 

While we were dancing I saw a vision, I saw the spring of a river and I saw a cement block on top of it so that the water can’t come out as we were singing and dancing suddenly the concrete cracked. And the water began to boost out. Who is that one for? Are you the one? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Then God said that somebody is going to get a gift of two cars this month. He said you are to keep one and bring one to Him. Who claims that one? Alleluia! So shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!) You will hear the testimony in October no doubt about that.

 

He even said that somebody is going to get two financial breakthroughs before the end of this month. And He said 50% is yours. 50% belongs to the Lord. And He asked me to tell someone that your days of loneliness are over. If I have my way we will just dance for the rest of the night. But that’s all right we will get ready for next month. And then we may be able to take some testimonies of some of those who come forward. But for certain reasons that I can’t tell you we have to move on. Tell your neighbour I told you at the beginning that I will rejoice with you soon. I’m rejoicing with you now. Alleluia! We will take some testimonies from the past, thank the Almighty God, give our thanksgiving offering and be on our way.

 

But before we do that please take note of this very important announcement. First registration of voters will begin on 12th of September and will end on the 21st of September; between 9am and 5pm every day. I want to advise you to go out and register., keep your cards so that when the time comes you will be able to vote. That is the only way you can enthrone righteous people into the government. September 12th to 21st, 9am to 5pm daily; make sure you go out and you vote and you register so that when the time comes to vote you will have what to use for the voting. Thank You Father. The Lord said somebody has received a judgment and the judgment is against you, He asked me to tell you, appeal and you will win. He said He will reverse the irreversible.

Alleluia!

 

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

REVERSING THE IRREVERSIBLE – 5

4th of October, 2002

Just go ahead and worship the Almighty God! Go ahead and bless Him! Praise Him! Magnify His holy name! Just go ahead and worship Him. Go ahead now lift Him high! Praise Him! Magnify His holy name! He is worthy to be praised! He is worthy to be adored! Go ahead praise Him! Magnify His holy name! Praise Him! Praise Him! Praise Him! Give Him all glory! Give Him all honour! Give Him all adoration!

The Lord said there is someone here tonight …beginning from this month it will be showers of blessings. (Amen!)!

Father, we bless Your name! We give You all glory! We give You all honour! We give You all adoration! Because there is no one like You. Surely You are the Most High. You are greater than the greatest! You are higher than the highest! You are better than the best! You are richer than the richest. You are older than the oldest. You are wiser than the wisest. Glory be to Your holy name! (Amen!). Father glory be to Your holy name. Amen!). Accept our worship in Jesus name! Father we are here again. It is unto You we are gathered. Do something new tonight. Do something special tonight. (Amen!). Do something glorious tonight. (Amen!). Do something miraculous tonight!. (Amen!). Save souls tonight!. (Amen!). Heal tonight!. (Amen!). Set free tonight!. (Amen!). Just glorify Yourself tonight! (Amen!) and bless everyone of us! In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! Amen!. (Amen!) Amen! Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

I want you to help me prophesy to seven people. Shake hands with them and tell them “Your night is over! Your night is over!” Prophesy to at least seven people. Tell them: “Your night is over! Your day has come. Your day of joy has come. Your night is over now! Your night is over now!” And if you believe that give the Lord a big round of applause! Glory be to God! Your night is over now! Glory be to God! God bless you, you may be seated.

And I think the only words to describe the choirs of tonight is simply fantastic! One after the other they proved to us that the Almighty God can anoint vessels like themselves and turn them to vessels unto honour. I’m particularly thrilled by the choir from Acme. They are the original Model Parish; and of course the Headquarters proves as usual that they are the Mother of all. I am proud of all the choirs of tonight. You are very, very good! Keep going and I am sure the Almighty God will take you round the whole world. (Amen!). As for our Pastor Kunle Ajayi may the Almighty God just keep on anointing you. (Amen!).

Tonight we want to continue with our study on “Reversing the Irreversible”. And I want to encourage somebody here tonight – the fellow who will discover very, very soon that he is the one God has this day for:- to be fully on alert because the message of tonight is not going to be really a sermon, it is going to be a series of prophecies. (Amen!). Ezekiel 37:1-10 is a classical example of the Almighty God reversing the irreversible. And we will just take some verses from there tonight and study how God… what are the things the Almighty God will do when He wants to reverse the irreversible. Let’s just read the first five verses or lets go on to six:

The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley, which was full of bones, of bones. And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: (Amen!). And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. (Amen!).

Whenever God wants to reverse the irreversible He does certain things. He follows a process and we are going look at the three basic steps that He takes when He wants to reverse the irreversible.

The first thing He does is that He initiates or arranges or inspires a divine appointment. He will arrange for a divine appointment. He will arrange for two people to meet by divine appointment. It was the Almighty God who picked up Ezekiel and took him to the valley of dry bones. The valley of dry bones could not go and meet Ezekiel. It was the Almighty God who arranged for Ezekiel to meet the dry bones. When God wants to perform a special miracle in your life somehow He will bring you in contact with someone who is going to be your own Ezekiel. He either takes Ezekiel to you or He takes you to Ezekiel. Tonight He has brought you to the Redemption Camp (Amen!) to keep an appointment with the Almighty God.

And someone tonight is going to hear just a sentence-(Amen!) just a word of prophecy (Amen!) and suddenly their dry bones will begin to live! (Amen!) Some people for a long time had been struggling. Tonight your struggles are over. (Amen!) For some people for a long time had been expecting miracles but I am saying to you today that your night of waiting is over. (Amen!) Tonight you are not here just to attend a gathering. Tonight you are here to have an appointment with the Almighty God. (Amen!) If you are that one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

In every man’s life; in every woman’s life, a day comes – you meet somebody or somebody meets you that will begin a process that will lead to the reversal of every irreversibility in your life. I believe that that day has come for somebody here tonight. (Amen!) We will take some examples from the Scriptures and then I will give you some examples from real life. You must have noticed that since we started this series I have been giving you testimonies upon testimonies to let you know that what God has done before He can do it again. Somehow I believe that next month I will be using your own testimony. (Amen!)

In Gen. 18:1-5 the Bible says “And the Lord appeared unto him” – that’s Abraham “in the plain of Mamre and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day. And he lift up his eyes and looked, and lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself towards the ground”. You can read the rest of the story.

Abraham was sitting at his tent. The Almighty God in His infinite wisdom decided that the day has come for Abraham. That this man who was considered impossibly barren is going to become fruitful. So God arranged an appointment. Abraham didn’t know God was coming. It was like any other day in his life. He woke up thinking that it will be just another day. The day started normally. There was no special thunder. There was no earthquake. Every thing was normal. And he was sitting down in the door of the tent as he had done several times. And all of a sudden he looked up and he saw three men. He didn’t know how they got there but the moment he saw them, he knew that he had a special visitor. Somebody is going to receive a special visitor here tonight. (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia. (Alleluia!) Before that day was over, every promise that God had made to Abraham came to be fulfilled. Some of you have collected a note full of prophecies. Beginning from tonight they will all be fulfilled. (Amen!)

Let me give you example before we go to the next one. Many of you have heard me tell the story of a man who -more than fifty years old -had no wife because he couldn’t just bring himself to say to a woman: “Will you marry me?” The enemy bound him so tight; he couldn’t open his mouth to say to a woman, “Will you marry me?” And everybody thought he was a eunuch and he himself, even though he was highly educated, he knew he had a problem but didn’t know how to be free. Ah! God is going to set somebody free here tonight. (Amen!) But then God arranged that we held a programme in his town. We had to go to his town and during the programme he gave his life to Jesus. And as he gave his life to Jesus not only did Jesus save his soul, He destroyed the yoke in his life. Every yoke in your own life shall also be destroyed tonight. (Amen!) Six months later he was married. Nine months later the wife delivered a set of twins. Two years later the wife delivered another set of twins. All of you who had been considered barren tonight God will give you a divine appointment. (Amen!) Now let me go on quickly because we have quite a lot of ground to cover tonight.

In 1 Sam.16:1 we read that the Almighty God said there.. “And the Lord said unto Samuel how long wilt thou mourn for Saul seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill thine horn with oil and go. I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite; for I have provided me a king among his sons”. There is a Samuel coming your way tonight. (Amen!) He has a horn that is full of oil of anointing .(Amen!) And that anointing oil is going be poured on your head in Jesus name! (Amen!) You know the story of David very well. He was somebody despised by his parents; despised by his family. He was considered useless. He was somebody that they said is only good for looking after sheep. They never thought he can ever become anything. They have made up their mind that this boy is going to be the tail of the family. But the Almighty God decided one day that He is going to turn the tail to be head. And He decided to arrange for a divine appointment. David was busy in the bush looking after the sheep, singing to the Almighty God because he has nothing else to do. The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. God said I have heard you I am coming your way. Jesus of Nazareth is passing your way today. (Amen!) He is coming the way of only one fellow. Who is that one fellow? You better let me hear you shout Alleluia. (Alleluia!) It was not David who sent for Samuel. He didn’t even know there is any one so called Samuel. He was busy taking care of sheep and fighting off lion and bear. But the Almighty God arranged for a divine appointment and every thing changed from that day. Every thing is going to change for the better in your life from today. (Amen!)

Several years ago I was a teacher in a secondary school and I was a sports man. So I was the Games Master and then we went to go and compete with another secondary school. And of course we met the Games Master of the other school and like young men we were boasting as to who will win, who will not win. ‘Oh’, he said, “We will beat you! You won’t even know the way back to where you came from”. And I was telling him by the time we finish with you, you will thank God that we don’t stay here because you will all run away! We played. I can’t even remember now who won- it was years ago. And like sports men, after the game we were friends again. We eat together, drank beer together. I wasn’t born again then. And we went back to our place and I forgot about him, he forgot about me.

Years later, I was back at University of Lagos to do my Post-graduate studies. I applied for the Federal government scholarship. When I was filling the forms some friends told me I was wasting my time. “Do you know anybody there? I said “No! They said, “they won’t even call you for interview”. But I filled the form all the same. Months passed, I waited for letter of interview. It didn’t come. So I forgot about it. But then one day:- Your day will come today. (Amen!) One day as I was coming out of the dinning hall I met this man, the former Games Master and we greeted like we. Like – you know, the Nigerian way: “Ah long time, no see! You need more beating?” And we joked and joked: “Where are you now?” “Oh I am now a student at the University of Lagos. And what about you?” He said, “I work now at the Federal Ministry of Education, Scholarship Section.” Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) So I took him to my room, gave him another bottle of beer and we talked. And he heard that I applied for scholarship and I wasn’t called for an interview and he left and two weeks later I got the scholarship. You are going to get your own scholarship tonight! (Amen!)

The Almighty God will go to the past. Remember, He is the Alpha … and bring somebody that you had met before to reverse your irreversibility. (Amen!) If you believe that you better shout Alleluia. (Alleluia!)

Lets go to Luke chapter 5:1-3. Luke chapter 5; lets read just verse 1 to 3. Luke 5:1-3: And it came to pass that as people pressed upon Him to hear the word of God, He stood by the lake of Gennesaret. And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.

Jesus is going to come into the boat of somebody here tonight. (Amen!)

You know the story very well: Peter had fished all night and he caught nothing. He fished all night: He caught nothing. He kept on throwing the nets and he was bringing them up empty. He was like a student who had done several exams and he just kept on failing. Its’ like a woman who had been married for years and every month instead of pregnancy it was the same old story. Its’ the story of somebody who has worked for years and there has been no promotion. It is the story of someone who had toiled and toiled and toiled and there is nothing to show for it. Its’ the story of someone who is a total failure. Whenever God wants to turn a total failure to an instant success, whenever He wants to take someone who is destitute to change him to an overflowing prosperous person, He arranges a divine appointment. The Almighty God had been watching someone who had being praying all night, working all day, struggling, doing everything that he knows to do. And had kept on failing, and failing and failing and he decided that enough is enough. So He fixed today, that this day whether it rains or it shines, He has made up his mind that your night is over! (Amen!) that your day is beginning! So He arranged a divine appointment. That’s why you are here!

Years ago, I was sitting in my house in Ilesha; I was about to eat pounded yam when they brought in a man. I thought he was a mad man, but he wasn’t mad, although his situation was worse than somebody who is mad. Just looking at him, you will want to recoil from him and he is a highly educated man. He used to be extremely rich but the enemy attacked him and they attacked him in a very strange way. He had a problem that no doctor could handle because he will just sit down talking to you and scratch his head like this and like a magician a cockroach will come from the head. He could put his hand into his ear and a fly can jump out. He said this is the problem, he does not know how it came about. All over his body any kind of insect can come out any time. He has spent everything he had. All his clothes he has sold that’s why he came in the little rag that he had left. But God looked down on him with mercy. He felt that he had suffered enough, so He arranged for a divine appointment.

When he began to tell his story I couldn’t eat again. I pushed aside the food and gave him a simple invitation. I gave him a simple invitation: “Will you give your life to Jesus?” Because it is clear this is a battle that only one fellow can win. Oh, of course I didn’t have to speak for long. He had tried every other method and they had failed. So he gave his life to Jesus Christ. We prayed a simple prayer, he left and I came back to Lagos. In those days because my mother was still alive, I went home every two weeks to see her in Ilesha. So two weeks later I went back to see Mama. And as usual my pounded yam was waiting. As I sat down to eat my pounded yam a handsome, good-looking rich man walked into the room. I said, “These people have come again! Will you let me finish my food?” He said, “Don’t you recognize me?” And I said, “We never met before! “Ah! I was the one you prayed for two weeks ago! Look at what God has done in two weeks.” Every one of you that has been captured by the enemy and they think that you can never be free- from tonight your freedom is sure. (Amen!)

If you believe that, you better shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Let’s look at another example, John 5. When God wants to reverse the irreversible, He arranges for a divine appointment. John 5:2-6: Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market, a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue, Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had now been a long time in that case, He said unto him, wilt thou be made whole?”

Jesus is going to see somebody here tonight. (Amen!)

There were several people, hundreds or thousands of them – sick, blind, withered, in serious need, gathered together in one place. There was one man there, he’s been there for thirty-eight years. He’s been struggling for thirty-eight years. By now his friends have forsaken him. Relatives have tried their best and they have left him. He himself knew that he was incurable. It is only, just possibly, if by miracle he gets into the pool then he might be healed. But he knew after thirty-eight years that there is no hope. But then Jesus was passing by and He saw this crowd, every one of them needed help. But He walked through them! Walked through! Walked through! He saw the one on the right He said “No, you are not the one I am looking for today! “He looked at one on the left, He said “No, no, …” He saw another three, another four. He said, “You are not the one with the divine appointment, and finally He saw the one and stood in front of him and said, “You are the one, that I have been sent to.” Who is the one God is going to visit tonight? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

When the Almighty God wants to cure the incurable when He wants to turn somebody who had been forsaken to a living testimony, when He wants to turn somebody who has been abandoned to the centre of attention, He arranges a divine appointment. He will work it out such that everybody will know this is God. So that by the time you are giving your testimony very soon everybody will know this is God. (Amen!)

By the way as I was preaching the Lord is already doing His healing as usual- I just want to continue. (Amen!) For example there was someone with a dislocated disk the Lord said He has set the thing back in position. Someone with stiff fingers that the Lord said you can check now, that your fingers are normal again.

The Almighty said there is someone who came here with ‘SS’ and He has changed it to ‘AA’ .(Amen!) We will discover more as we go along. Let’s just go on. Lets go on, because I know He is coming your way now. (Amen!)

Several years ago I was going to Ilesha again and I got to Ife. I saw a car that seemed to have broken down: and I saw the sticker of the church, of a member of the church on it. And so I stopped to take a closer look. And I saw a lady, one of our members standing by, pregnant, “Ah this is somebody I know.” So I came out of the car. “What’s wrong with your car?” “Ah! Daddy! You? There? Oh God! Oh God! Oh God!” I said “What is it? You have a problem with your car?” She said,” Don’t worry about the car that’s not the problem. That’s not the problem.” she said, The baby in my womb has not moved for the past six days, and the doctors said that they are going to evacuate and the baby is almost eight months old. Look at you, you are here!” ‘Well’, I said “well in that case, may we lay hands on that baby? Baby in the Mighty name of Jesus come back to life.” And even before I moved my hand, we saw the moving again.

Two years ago I visited one of our European countries and this baby that the doctor was going to evacuate was the one beating the drum in the church. (Amen!) Every good thing in your life that has died shall come back to life tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) You better say Amen loud and clear. (Amen!)

Lets take another example, Mark chapter 10. I am sure by now the fellow concerned the one God is going to visit tonight, already knows himself or herself. Mark 10:46-47: And they came to Jericho and as He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great number of people; blind Bartemeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the high way side begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, Jesus; thou son of David have mercy on me.” God is going to have mercy on someone here tonight. (Amen!)

I have talked to you about this story before; Jesus went to Jericho and then He came out of Jericho. You should know by now that Jesus didn’t go to Jericho just for the fun of going. He went to Jericho, did nothing in Jericho. There was nothing said that in Jericho He preached: in Jericho He healed. He went to Jericho and came out of Jericho. The man who needed divine appointment was not inside Jericho. As He was coming out of Jericho, the man who was going to have his irreversible reverse was by the highway side begging. He sat there. He couldn’t come to Jericho. He has a normal place where he sat to beg. And my Father went to meet him there. Wherever you are seated tonight the Almighty God will come to you there. (Amen!)

Whenever God wants to turn darkness into light, when the Almighty God wants to take off the garment of suffering from somebody: when the Almighty God will want to turn somebody that everybody is saying “shut-up! Shut-up” to somebody that everybody will say, “We want to hear your testimony!” He arranges a divine appointment. Tonight the Almighty God is coming the way of someone. (Amen!) I am not so sure who that fellow is. But I think I have a rough idea at least three people. I know I will be one of the three! I am sure my wife will be another one! And then there’ll be at least one other fellow. If you are that other fellow, let me hear you shout Alleluia. (Alleluia!)

I don’t know if you have ever heard me tell the story of a boy, young boy- When he was born because the parents were idol worshippers, they took him to the Ifa oracle to find out how his future will be. And as they took him to the herbalist, he checked and said, “Oh you better take this boy to Jesus Christ. And they said, “What kind of nonsense is this?” How can a herbalist be recommending Jesus?” So they said something must be wrong with this man. So they took the boy away from him but that boy never knew a day of health of any type from the moment he was born – they took him everywhere- sickness upon sickness, upon sickness. Finally we held a programme at Ibadan Grammar School; and somebody told the parents; “Something is happening here. Take this boy there”. The mother said, “that’s what the herbalist said initially Well let’s take him to Jesus.” And they brought him. They covered him with all kinds of charms and came to the programme and as I was preaching. I saw a little stir in the congregation. I didn’t know what was it. I am sure the ushers will take care. So I just went on preaching. After the service I went to find out what happened. What was causing the commotion?

They said as the service was going on because it was in the afternoon and the heat was on the mother of this child removed the shirt and hung it on the chair on the bock of the chair. As the sermon was going on, as the power of God came down, from inside that shirt came out a snake and it was the killing of the snake that was causing the stir. Whatever the enemy has hidden in your body, every plant which God did not plant that is in your system. They shall be uprooted tonight in Jesus name, Amen! (Amen!)

Let me take another example, John 2. Let’s read verse 1 to 2. Whenever God wants to reverse the irreversible He arranges a divine appointment. John 2:1-2: And the third day, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there. And both Jesus was called, and his disciples to the marriage.” I don’t know whose marriage, Jesus Christ is going to come into tonight, but I know He is coming into one family. He is coming into one family to change their water to wine. (Amen!) He is coming into one family to change their defeat to triumph. He is coming into one family to change their shame to glory. Tell your neighbour “God is talking about me now!” He is talking about me now!” The Almighty God knew in advance because He is not only the Alpha, He is the Omega. He knew that at this particular wedding there was going to be a crisis. He knew that they were going to run out of wine. And He knew that He will be the only One who can solve that problem. And He saw to it that He was invited. And I am sure somebody tonight is going to say to Jesus Christ, “Come into my home. Come into my family. You are welcome there! Come into my home.” Who is the fellow? Who is going to say ‘Come.” Come into my home.” He will accept your invitation in Jesus name! (Amen!)

You have heard this testimony before. There was a sister who came to church and said, “Please help me, my husband is going out at night. He won’t come in time. I don’t know what to do about him. Pray that he will stay home. In the process she got born again. In her place of work she got promoted. And then she got a new car. But she can’t drive. So she begged the husband, “Help me take the car to the church so that they can bless the car.” He said, “I will take you but I won’t enter the church. I will drive the car there. They will bless the car: I will bring you back home. I am not entering the church.” The wife said, “Fine. Just drive the car.” So he drove the car and got there. The wife entered the church. He sat in the car and then it was time to preach and the sermon was filtering to him where he was. So he rolled down the glass. After sometime he opened the door. Very soon he came out of car and by the time they made the alter call he was at the alter.

Then God knew what was coming because some weeks later this same man was going to work somewhere in Ikeja and he got to the Ikeja roundabout and the enemy attacked him and he lost his senses. And he began to drive round and round and round the roundabout. Round and round! And round! And round! And round the roundabout. But at a stage the Holy Spirit took control and said “Drive to the church!” And he drove to the church. As he was coming out of the car the brethren saw immediately something is wrong with this man. And they sprang to action and the Almighty God took control from there. God knew in advance that trouble was coming, that if He doesn’t do something this man would die a mad man. So He arranged for a divine appointment. He arranged for the wife to buy a car. He arranged for the man to drive the car to the church. He arranged for a place where this man can turn to in the day of trouble. Because you are here tonight every evil plan that the devil has stored for your future, I say they are cancelled in Jesus name (Amen!) in Jesus name, Amen!

May I give you one more example, John 11:1-3 The Bible says, Now a certain man was sick named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped His feet with her hair. Whose brother Lazarus was sick. Therefore his sister sent unto Him, saying Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. Maybe you know the story of Lazarus very well. You know how it ended. You know if we are going to take another example of reversing the irreversible after the example of the dry bones a very good illustration would be that of Lazarus. Because here was a man who not only died; not only was he buried- he’s been there four days!

When we want to talk about an impossibility this is a classical example. But the Almighty God arranged a divine appointment. The sister had met Jesus and anointed Jesus; had washed the feet of Jesus with her tears; had wiped the feet of Jesus with her hair. His sister already had a credit with God. So when trouble came, when sickness hit Lazarus she could now send to Jesus Christ to say one good turn deserves another. And she said, “Your friend Lazarus is sick. Come and heal him.” You know the rest of the story. Even though death thought he had swallowed him; even though friends had already said, “This one is gone, and gone forever.” Even though everybody must have concluded: “What a pity this boy will never marry. He can never have a baby. He can never be promoted. He can never reach his goal. He’s finished and finished and finished.” Because my father arranged a divine appointment the man who’s been dead four days came back to life. I can assure you he got married. I can assure you he had babies. I can assure you he reached his goal. That’s why I am saying to somebody here today, they say you can never marry- very soon we will hear the wedding bells. (Amen!) They said you can never have children – you will surprise them very soon. (Amen!) They say you will never reach your goal. They will be the first to say congratulation when you reach your goal. (Amen!)

Now, let me go on because time is running. The first thing God does when He wants to reverse the irreversible is that He arranges a divine appointment. What is the second thing He does? Ezekiel 37:3 “And He said unto me son of man can these bones live? And I answered O Lord God! Thou knowest.” The second thing God does when He wants to reverse the irreversible is that He provokes a discussion. He will ask a question and then you answer and two of you will begin to talk. He can begin to ask, “Can these bones live? Can the utterly impossible be made possible? Can that which is completely beyond reason become a reality? You will suddenly feel a question coming from within you. Has God forgotten me? Has He forsaken me? I have seen so many people testify. “When will my testimony come? They said God can do all things and I believe. When is my own going to happen…..? Whenever you see that question coming up within you, you know that God is about to reverse the irreversible. (Amen!)

Who is God going to touch tonight? Is it me? Among all these thousands of people… Who is going to be the first to testify? Is it me? Ah, well I thought so. I hope so; but I don’t know. He provokes a discussion. “Son of man can these bones live?” Ezekiel said, “I don’t know. This is beyond me.” They were not just dry bones. They are very dry. Very, very, dry. “Lord I don’t know.” You remember when the Lord said to that man whose child was lunatic. “Do you believe I can heal this boy?” The man said, “I believe; but help thou my unbelief. “I thought you said you believe? How do you want me to help your unbelief again?” The man said, “I believe but I am not so sure. If you can do anything, help me!”

When God wants to reverse the irreversible He doesn’t even mind if you express your doubt because there are many of us who are here tonight; we are not even sure any more. We had believed before, our faith has been strong before. Weeks have passed, what we were expecting didn’t come. And all of a sudden we are no longer sure; but tonight God is going to surprise you! (Amen!)

Let me give you example based on the one we have already looked at. Genesis 18:9. You know we told you the story of Abraham, how he had a divine visitation and how God wanted to provoke a discussion. After He had eaten and drunk in the tent of Abraham, He said unto him, “Where is Sarah thy wife?” And he said, “Behold in the tent.” “Where is your wife?” It may sound to you a very simple question but they knew what they were asking for. God was saying to Abraham, “Where is your greatest impossibility? Where is your personal irreversible? Where is that promise in your life that has not been fulfilled for the past 25 years?” By simply saying, “Where is your wife?” He is asking a load of questions. The Almighty God is talking to someone tonight. He is saying, “where is your own greatest impossibility? Where is that problem in your life that you consider irreversible? Where is it?” And Abraham answered and said, “behind the tent.” When God asks you tonight, “what is it?” “Where is that impossibility in your life?” I pray that you give Him the correct answer. One question can make all the difference between death and life.

Years ago I was going to Port-Harcourt to have a crusade for our churches there. As I was getting ready suddenly God spoke to me and said, “You are going to stay in the house of so and so.” “Lord, Your Will be done. But why? That fellow is not a member of our church. I met him at the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship once. We are not friends. We just met as brothers. If I want to stay in a house in Port-Harcourt I have many children there.” God said, “That’s where you are staying.” “Yes Lord.” So I sent to the people in Port-Harcourt: Tell so and so, the Lord said I am staying in your house. They told him, he jumped for joy. He danced and prepared the place. I got there. Oh he laid down entertainment as if he wanted to entertain the King of Kings Himself. He brought his children and I was playing with them. And one of them clung to me so I call him “My friend.”

On the second day of the crusade, I was ready to go when he drove in from the place of work. And I saw the other children but I didn’t see the first boy. And I asked a question, “Where is my friend?” To me just a casual question “Where is my friend?” And he said, “Your friend is in hospital dying.” He would not have told me because, he saw I was going to crusade; he wouldn’t have bothered me at that stage. But immediately he said that, I heard God say to me, “That is why I asked you to stay here.” So I said, “We will go to the hospital first. The crusade will wait.” Everything God has to suspend to take care of your case tonight, He will suspend it in Jesus name! (Amen!) When He was going to attend to Bartimaeus the Bible says Jesus stood still. Tonight the Almighty God will stand still to attend to your case! (Amen!)

We went to the hospital, the boy was in a heavily air conditioned room, completely naked and still sweating like mad. Apparently when he went to school somebody gave him poison. I stood looking at the doctor and the parents were standing behind the doctor. I looked at the doctor in the face; he looked at me and made a sign. No hope. No hope at all. But God told me, “This is why I asked you to come.” I prayed a simple prayer. I went to the crusade. I came back home. As I was just getting ready to rest the cars drove in again and my friend had been discharged! (Alleluia!) Tonight whatever arrangement God has to make, whatever appointment He has to arrange, whatever question He has to ask to reverse the irreversible in your life shall be done in Jesus name! (Amen!)

The question they asked, they said, “Where is your wife?” And that discussion led to something else. In 1 Samuel 16:11 Samuel asked Jesse only one question. “Are these all your sons?” Because when he got to the house of Jesse, the first big boy came and stood before him; Samuel said, “Ah this must be the anointed of God.” God said, “No, this is not the one for whom I arranged the appointment.” The second, the third, the fourth, till the seventh, God kept on saying, “No.” “Are these all your sons?” And the father said, “No. It remains one, but he can’t be the king. That’s why I didn’t present him. I know you told me to call my family to this sacrifice but that boy there is no need to call him. He doesn’t matter. He can’t possibly be king.” Every one of your children that the world had written off, from tonight, they will begin to prosper in Jesus name! (Amen!)

They thought that David can never amount to anything. The question is; are these all your sons?… Tell me where is that problem that you think does not even need asking God to solve. Tonight when it is time to pray, remember to tell Him everyone of those problems that you think can no longer be solved.

Or shall we look at the example of John 5:6 When Jesus saw that man who’d been sick for thirty-eight years, after He had arranged the appointment and He stood by his side, He asked him a question, “Will you be made whole?” A very strange question to ask a sick man but I believe that God is asking somebody here tonight “Will you be made whole?” I didn’t hear your answer! Physically will you be made whole? Financially will you be made whole? Spiritually will you be made whole? Maritally will you be made whole?” A simple question but it has so many implications. He was asking the man, “Are you really tired of sickness?” Do you really prefer health to sickness? Do you really prefer prosperity to poverty? Would you prefer the company of happy people singing, dancing to the company of these people who are always grumbling, murmuring?” God is asking somebody here tonight, “Are you ready for your miracle?” You better let me hear your “Yes” loud and clear!

I have told you the story before, there was this woman who was sick and as we were praying. Oh we prayed! I mean we prayed! We bound! We loosed! We commanded! We decreed! We did everything we knew! But instead of the fellow getting better she just remained the same. And we know God. He is a faithful God. He is the Almighty. He is a great physician. He has never lost a battle. And then we turned and said “Father what’s wrong? Whatever we are supposed to do?” The Lord said, “You are praying for healing for this woman! Have you asked her does she want to be well?” Of course every sick fellow wants to be well! “Ask her!” “Woman! Woman do you want to be well?” She said, “No! “You don’t want to be well? Why not?” She said, “When I was well my husband won’t come home from work. He will go from work to the club. Since I became sick as soon as he finishes from work he comes straight home. I don’t want to be well! “Is there anybody here tonight who doesn’t want to be well? Is there anybody here tonight who is ready for his or her miracle? Do I hear you say “Amen!” (Amen!) Where do you want your miracle anyway? He provokes a discussion. He provokes a discussion.

Let me take one or two examples more, John 2:3-4: It is the story of the wedding in Cana that we have referred to. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus said unto Him, they have no wine. Jesus said unto her woman what have I to do with you? My hour is not yet come! Adeboye what have I to do with you? Miracles of course! Miracles! My hour hasn’t come? It will have to come! The Almighty God is asking somebody here today, “What have I to do with you? I say, “What have I to do with you?” He is saying, “Who told you that you will receive special attention today? Who told you that today is your day? Who told you that the hour of your miracle is come?” I am sure you will be able to answer.

At the beginning of the service, somebody prophesied to me and told me my night is over and I believed Him. How many of you believe that your night is over? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) You know when your day comes, something within you will tell you… this is the day I have been waiting for. This is the day I have been waiting for. The fellow God has been talking to since I began already knows himself. Even as the choir started singing and I listened to their songs and they were already preaching my sermon. I said, “Oh thank you Lord then today is definitely my day.” I know somebody else will share the day with me. Any one else there? Ready? So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!)

There was a man who was seriously sick – had high blood pressure, hypertension, all kinds, all kinds. And he came to church one day at Ebute-Metta and we started Sunday School. As they started the Sunday School, and he sat down and the teacher said, “today we are going to study the crossing of the Red Sea. We are going to see the power of the One who can cause the sea to freeze. We are going to see the power of the One who can ask every storm to fall asleep.” The man just knew immediately – ah, my day has come!” In fact he was so sure that he was crying for joy. In order not to embarrass everybody, he went out to cry and wipe his face. Somehow he knew, it was not just the story they where going to discuss. He knew that his day has come. Do you know before the Sunday school lesson was over he was healed? And I am here to tell somebody today that before I finish the sermon your problem will be completely gone. (Amen!)

Now look at the example in John 11:34 He was talking about this Lazarus man that had been dead for four days. He had arranged for a divine appointment and the Almighty God now has come and when He arrived, He provoked a discussion and said, “Where have you laid him? They said unto Him, “Lord come and see.” “Where have ye laid him?” Jesus was saying, “Show me where you lost hope. I know you were waiting for me. You waited, I didn’t come on time, he died. You waited a bit knowing that if I come on time, I can still raise the dead. I have done that of Jairus daughter. I have done that of the widow’s son. But when you waited and you waited and I didn’t come then you went and buried him. Show me at what stage you lost hope? Show me where you thought it was now too late? Show me at that stage where you thought your case has become irreversible?” And they said unto Him “Come and see.”

It is not going to be long now before you begin to talk to God. And when that time comes please, be very frank with Him. Tell Him it was at this stage that I lost hope. It was at this stage that my faith could no longer carry me. I am not angry with you Lord Jesus Christ. I know you are a good God. I know you can do all things, but you know at this stage I thought there is no need to worry anymore.” Tell Him the details. Tell Him where you lost hope. He will take it over from there. I want to assure you that the hope of the hopeless is here tonight. (Amen!)

Remember the story of the woman who was barren and the husband took her every where, spent all kinds of money and nothing happened until finally they went to a professor and the professor decided to run some special test and discovered that the woman had no ovary. He called the husband, “Why are you wasting your time? Your wife has no ovary. She cannot produce an egg for you to fertilize. Forget! You can never have children!” So the husband told the wife this is what the doctor said. At that stage, the woman said, “Oh well in that case, lets just go home. Let me go and eat till I die. I can’t have children in this world. It is hopeless. “But something within the husband said, “That’s the doctors report. Let’s go and hear Jesus’ report.” Every report that is contrary to your well been shall be cancelled tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) And they came to one of our conventions. We were still in the old auditorium. We were very few then. I used to lay hands on everybody who came. And I remembered I laid hands on this woman and she fell under the anointing and was on the ground for about forty-five minutes. I thought she was sleeping because it was a night programme. So I thought the woman was just seeking an opportunity to sleep a little. I didn’t know that my Father was performing a special operation. Whatever operation God needs to perform in your life, it shall be done tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) The following year, the woman that they said had no ovary came rejoicing with her own baby. Every irreversible in your life shall be reversed tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Finally before we go and pray, Mark 10:51. Jesus had gone to Jericho, He came out of Jericho because the man he was looking for was not inside Jericho; he was by the roadside begging. He had cried to Him. They had now finally brought him. And He now provoked a discussion: “And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto Him, Lord that I might receive my sight.” I believe Jesus is saying to somebody tonight, “What do you want me to do for you? What exactly is your request? What is the impossibility you want me to make possible? Is it something physical like the blindness? Is it something financial? You know like you use to be a beggar you don’t want to be a beggar anymore? Is it something mental or emotional? You know, is it the agony of being a lonely beggar? The agony of loneliness? The agony of rejection? The agony of being overlooked by people? Or is it the problem of intense opposition from the people you have not even offended. Or is it something Spiritual? Is it the problem or even the curse of been a blind fellow? The problem of being in darkness when everybody else is in light? What exactly do you want?” That’s the question I believe the Almighty God is going to ask somebody tonight. I believe that when that time comes, you will give Him the correct answer. And you will give Him the complete answer. And you won’t hide anything from Him. What exactly do you want?

I believe that the only one who can go home tonight without a miracle is the only one who rejects the offer of Jesus Christ. He brought you here tonight for something extra ordinary. He wants this night to be a night, the kind that you will never forget for the rest of your life! You are not here by accident. No, no, no God brought you here! But then if you are still in your sin and Jesus Christ says I want to help you. I can forgive you. I can wash away your sin. I can save your soul. I can solve all these problems you have. Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”

And you said, “No. I am not going to surrender to Him. I want to continue to live in sin. I want to continue to live as I used to live before. I want to continue to lie. I want to continue to cheat. I want to continue to fornicate. Ah, I don’t want to surrender my life to Jesus.” He can’t force you. God cannot give you a miracle by force. If He says, “come unto me” and you say you are not coming. He will leave you alone.

But because He brought you tonight. I want to appeal to you. If you have not surrendered your life to Jesus – do so tonight. This is an extraordinary night. This is a night you can never forget! Don’t miss what God wants to do tonight! So if you are here, and you are not yet born again and you want to surrender your life to Jesus I am going to count up to ten. By the time I say ten, you must already be in front here.

Everyone of you that would want to surrender your life to Jesus, begin to come now. It is the Lord that is calling you. He is saying: “You have suffered enough, come out of darkness and come into light! Let me save your soul! Let me wash away your sins. Let me give you a new beginning.” If you want to give your life to Jesus, begin to come now. One, two, three, four, five… Say Jesus I have come to surrender to You tonight. Save my soul! I won’t struggle with you any more! I have come to surrender my life to You. Be my Saviour! Be my Lord! Forgive all my sins! Hurry up now! Seven! He wants to save your soul that’s why He brought you to hear this message. And if you refuse His offer, He will not force you. But then you will stay on in your darkness and you will continue in your problems. But if you come to Him, He is mighty to save. Come on now to Him. Eight now! As you come, begin to talk to the Almighty God. Begin to pray. Begin to tell Him Lord have mercy on me! Lord save my soul! Let’s talk to the Almighty God as you come. Nine now, those of you, who know you are coming you better hurry up! Come from all over the place! This is a final call now! This is your last opportunity! Come! The Almighty God is calling you!

Those of us who are already sure of our salvation, let’s stretch our hands towards these people and begin to pray for them; that the Almighty God to be merciful unto them; That the Saviour of mankind will save their souls. Let’s begin to pray for them. Let’s intercede on their behalf. And those of you, who are coming, keep coming! Keep coming! Keep coming! Hurry up now because we are about to round up. If you want to surrender your life to Jesus come from all over the place! The gates of mercy may soon close. But God is still waiting for you, He is saying “Come! Come unto me! Come unto me! I will save your soul. I will forgive your sins. I will wash you in my Blood!” He said, “Whosoever will come unto me, I will in no wise cast out.” Hurry up now! Hurry up! I know some of you are coming from a long distance. So hurry up now! Come on the Lord is waiting for you.

Brethren lets pray for these people. Let’s intercede for them! That the Almighty God, in His infinite mercy, will cleanse them in His Blood: will save their souls, will forgive all their sins, will write their names in the Book of Life, so that they will become the true children of the living God. Those of you who are coming, Keep coming! Keep coming! Make sure you get here before I stop praying! Keep coming! Keep coming! There is still room for you. Come on, the Lord is still waiting for you! Yes I can still see some of you from afar off come on! Keep coming. Keep coming, don’t wait till you get here. The Lord is waiting for you! And those of you in front begin to talk to the Almighty God. And ask God to have mercy on you. Ask Him to save your soul. Ask Him to wash you in His Blood. Call on Him today! Call on Him right now! You say, “Father, become my Saviour, become my Lord! I surrender my life to You. I surrender to You completely. Take control of my life from now on! Rule my life! Reign supreme in my life! Be my Lord! be my Saviour! Forgive all my sins! I will serve You from now on! I will do Your Will from now on! I will never go back into the world! From today, whatever You want me to be is what I will do. I will do Your will just help me! Help me Lord! Have mercy on me today. Save my soul! Save my soul! And those of you who are still coming you better hurry up now because I want to pray. If you are still coming from afar off get here before I finish praying! Thank You Father. In Jesus Mighty name, we have prayed! (Amen!)

Father, I just want to thank You. I want to thank You for Your Word that has gone forth tonight. Thank You for the power in Your Word. Accept our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen!) I commit all these Your children that has come forward into Your hands. Have mercy on them! Forgive their sins. (Amen!) Save their souls. (Amen!) Wash them in Your blood. (Amen!) Write their names in the Book of Life. (Amen!) Beginning from today, let them become true children of the living God. (Amen!) And Father even as You save their souls, solve their problems. (Amen!) Reverse their irreversible! (Amen!) Make their impossibilities possible. (Amen!) And Lord, don’t let them ever go back into the world. (Amen!) Let them serve You till the end. (Amen!) In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen! Now those of you who have come forward let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

The period of explosive prayer. Think of all the impossibilities in your life; assemble them together because they are all going tonight. When God asks you a question tonight and says what do you want me to do for you? What will be the answer you will give Him? Begin to think about this; and after you have done that, now begin to thank God that at long last your day has come. I’m going to give you few minutes to do that and then we will begin to pray. So if you have testimonies to give, come to the back of the alter. The rest of us now for few minutes think of all the impossibilities in your life; all the irreversible that you want God to reverse. Think of the answer you will give the Lord if He asks you tonight, “What do you want me to do for you?” Because you must be ready with your answer when the time comes. And then begin to thank Him in advance because the day has come.

Let’s go ahead now. Anything that can stand between me and my divine appointment tonight Father, ruthlessly destroy! Open your mouth and pray! Anything that can stand between me and my own divine appointment tonight, Father ruthlessly destroy! Ruthlessly destroy! Anything that can stand between me and my divine appointment tonight, Almighty God ruthlessly destroy! Whatever it is that can stand between me and my divine appointment tonight, Almighty God, ruthlessly destroy!

So the next prayer we want to pray is a request for a divine grant of faith. I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, “Father, increase my faith! “Let’s talk to the Almighty God… In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Good, now the next prayer, if you like you can pray it, if you like you can murmur it. When Jesus came to the pool of Bethesda there were many people there He attended to only one. You want to lift your voice to the Almighty God, “Father, if you are visiting only three people tonight, let me be one of them!” Open your mouth and pray. In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The man at the pool of Bethesda, because he met with God, he had a breakthrough. Abraham, because God visited him, had a breakthrough.

How do I get Him to say, “Okay it is only one fellow I want, okay it will be you then.” There was a story we learnt years ago when we were in primary school about a hunter who wanted to go hunting and he wanted to check whether all will be well or not and they have a method the normally use. They will take a kola-nut that has four pieces and then they will throw it on the ground. If all is going to be well two faces will be down, two faces will be up. He threw the kola-nut the first time, all the faces where down which means serious trouble. He took it again and four faces down. Several times he tried it – all four faces down ” So he did something, with his own hand – he picked two of the faces and turned their faces up. He said to the kola-nut if you will not tell me good news I will tell you good news. Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) What do I do tonight to make sure that if God is visiting only one fellow, I will be that one?

It is in the Bible, Paul and Silas, they were in prison they were waiting for death the following morning. They knew that only divine intervention can reverse the irreversible in their lives and so they did something. The Bible said at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God. We have already prayed. It is time now to praise God. I say it is time to praise God! You will remember, last month that as we began to sing and to praise God. All kinds of miracles began to happen. You will remember, that during the convention the Lord said, “I will heal them as they praise Me” and I told you last month after what we saw, that from now on we will have a special time when we will do nothing other than just sing and praise Him and then we will see what we will see. And I am sure my children are ready on that side. Anybody ready here tonight to make sure that we so praise them that his own praises will come straight; come straight. And say Adeboye you are the one I want to bless tonight. Are you ready for that? Let’s stand on our feet now.

We are just warming up and the Lord asked me to tell someone here, that somebody cursed you and said no matter how hard you try that you won’t succeed, the Lord asked me to tell you because you have chosen to praise Him tonight, your success day has come! (Amen!) Alleluia!

The Lord also asked me to tell someone, the doctor told you that the baby inside you was not well formed, and therefore they want to evacuate. Daddy asked me to tell you, you can go for another test, your baby is normal now! (Amen!)

Let’s go ahead, lets continue to praise Him… Alleluia! The healing power of God is flowing already.

The Lord says for example, there is somebody here the doctors told you, you have cancer of the bone marrow, that there is nothing anybody can do about it. The Lord asked me to tell you, He has taken care of that. (Amen!)

The Lord said there is someone here; you have been trying to build a house now for ten years and you just couldn’t finish it. The Lord asked me to tell you, before January your house will be ready. (Amen!)

The Lord said there is someone here someone said you will not marry until all my own children are married. The Lord said now all her children are married and yet you still can’t find a husband. The Lord asked me to tell you that, that statement that she uttered has been cancelled tonight; (Amen!) that your day of joy had started.

And He says right now, as you are praising Him, He is working on bone, ankle bone, bones in the leg, bones in the hand, bones in the neck, bones in the back, even bones in the head….

The Lord said there is someone here tonight because you are not ashamed to dance for me, I will put all your enemies to shame. (Amen!)

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, it is a long time you really were happy last. The Lord asked me to tell you, for the next one month, everyday, He will do something to make you happy. (Amen!)

Now we are going to praise Him a little more. Now as we do so, there are some of us who are already healed tonight, let these people dance forward, so that we can glorify God together. I am talking of those of us, who had been actually healed tonight.

For example, the Lord said, there is someone here tonight, there is no way you could possibly read without glasses, but He asked me to tell you you can take your Bible. You can take the tiniest Bible and read without glasses.

The Lord told me, there is someone here up till this evening you can only hear with one ear. The Lord asked me to tell you, you can close the good one and you will hear clearly with the one that was bad.

He told me that there is someone here, no matter how you try you could not bend and touch your toes. He asked me to tell you to go ahead and touch your toe because He has taken care of your back.

He has healed so many people and we have praised Him only for fifteen minutes. I think we should praise Him a little more. As we praise Him, if He has healed you – dance forward, and you will be amazed even as some people are going forward your own healing will also begin…. Alleluia! Now the healing continues.

The Lord said there is someone here, He said your story is anytime you take two steps forward you will take four steps back. The Lord asked me to tell you, from now on after two steps, There’ll be four steps! there will be eight steps.

Oh Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Alleluia!

Now tonight I will want to hear just a little bit of your testimony. So I am going to need the ushers and some of the pastors, please who may want to help me. Some of the pastors over there go behind these people and check from them, let’s get one or two of the major testimonies from the people right away. And those of the ushers who are in front here, ask them, what is it? What is it that the Lord did? And if there is something special that you think we should all hear about them you let us know. Lets do that one within a minute or two. Now, because we want to hear them talk, I want the rest of us to just begin to thank God quietly where we are while we get ready for some of these testimonies. If you hear a special testimony, something that is big that you think we should hear, you just signify then we will listen to you. O Thank You Father! What a great God we serve! What a marvellous God we serve! He is the Great Physician. Blessed be the name of the Lord forever more! Thank You Father! Thank you Jesus!

Sorry I’ve lost my voice, I have several testimonies. Today before I was coming down I had a stomach problem but when I got to this ground it was gone. Likewise my ear it has been for sometime now, for over ten years, I was so young and someone threw banger at my ear and that was all, but today I can hear very well now, no problem. Glory be to God! Alleluia! Congratulations. He said when he was young somebody exploded a banger near his ear and the ear went, more than ten years ago but God has restored everything. Glory be to God!

Oh this is the sister who could not read without glasses before and now she can read very well. That’s another fellow who could not read with glasses before, now could read very well.

Ah this woman had a broken hand and could not stretch the hand before- now she can stretch the hand completely. I told you God said He was working on bones.

This sister had a broken ankle. She couldn’t even walk but now she can jump. Let me see you jump. Let somebody shout Alleluia!

You remember God said he was working on stiff fingers? Not only are the fingers okay now; she could even bend also and touch her toes. Let somebody shout Alleluia! She has been praying, “please God mention my case” and the problem had been bones all along. God mentioned her case and now the bones are completely normal. Intensive healing from the top of her head to the toes of her feet, the Almighty God did a complete work. Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

How many more do you want to hear; five, six? How can I hear all? All right lets take six more.

One there’s another one whose ears have been healed: Let the Almighty God be praised! Forever more! She couldn’t breath normally when she came. She couldn’t sit, down comfortably when she came; but now the Almighty God had healed her and made her whole. Glory be to God! Thank You Father!

This is the man who had the dislocated wrist that the Almighty restored. Now everything is normal, congratulations! Glory be to God!

This woman is completely healed. She had been having heart problems and almost one side of the body was paralyzed now every thing is normal now. Let somebody shout Alleluia! Glory be to God!

This brother had severe pain chest, which vanished as we were praising the Lord. Let somebody shout Alleluia!

She can now read very well without glasses. Glory be to God! Your own case will be from medical report.

He had TB before but he believe firmly from all the feelings in his body that he has been completely healed. It is confirmed in Jesus name! (Amen!) O glory be to God!

The baby in her womb had stopped moving for a while but is moving now again. Glory be to God! Congratulations. We praise the Lord, that Mama could not even walk before without glasses but she walked all the way here without glasses, and your healing will be permanent in Jesus name. (Amen!)

Oh! this was a sister that was cursed by somebody who said, she will never achieve anything good in life. From now on success all the way in Jesus name! (Amen!)

This is another brother whose ear was healed tonight. Let somebody shout Alleluia! No problem we can’t hear all the testimony.

This is a brother who believes he has been healed of hypertension. It is so in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Glory be to God! This is just the beginning! We are going to praise Him for another five minutes during which you are going to dance back to your seat and I can assure you, even because you came out to testify, your miracles will be permanent. (Amen!) And as you are dancing back, the anointing that you are carrying away from here will affect everybody you come close to in Jesus name. (Amen!) Let somebody shout Alleluia!

Somebody said that you will not have peace in your husband house. The Lord asked me to tell you your peace begins today (Amen!) and the problem she wished for you is going right back to her now.

The Lord ask me to tell you there is good news there too, that problem that is going back to her is going to bring her to Jesus Christ. (Amen!)

Now glory be to God! We will praise Him more but this time we will just give our thanksgiving offering because time is running out ………………………..

Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

 

Tonight is a very special night. It’s a night of prophecies. I know somebody is here today God is going to talk to you. If you are the one let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) So we want to kick off by you helping me to prophesy to seven people. You look them straight in the face. Shake hands with them and tell them, “Your joy will be full tonight. Your joy will be full tonight.” If you believe that then shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) God bless you, you may be seated.

 

I am sure some of us have already received many prophecies tonight. I have received so many. I listed them as they came. The first one was: I will see you at the top. How many of you are going to the top with me? I will see you at the top. (Amen!) The second one is that you will have a breakthrough. (Amen!) I will have a breakthrough! The third one I received is that there will be deliverance tonight. (Amen!) So I believe every yoke in my life will be gone tonight. (Amen!) Another one I received is that as far as the Redeemed Christian Church of God is concerned we haven’t seen anything yet! (Amen!) How many of you received that one too? I received yet another one, it says God will not fail me! You mean you received that one too? And then I received yet another one. It says God will make room for me. Isn’t that wonderful? And then I received yet another one, that the evidence of my problem will become the evidence of my testimony. (Amen!) Did you receive that one also? And yet I received another one, that the people’s testimony about me from now on is that we have never seen this type of miracle before! Did you receive that one too?

 

I warned you at the beginning, that there is a preacher that I love to hear preach. In thirty minutes how many miracles, how many prophecies did I receive? I received about ten. That’s not bad for one night. Even if I receive just that, that’s enough for one night. The joy of somebody is going to be full tonight. (Amen!)

 

We want to continue with our series “Reversing the Irreversible.” Ezekiel 37:4-8: And He said unto me, “Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, ‘O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones: “Behold I will cause breathe to enter into you, and ye shall live. And I will lay sinews upon you and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin and put breathe in you and ye shall live and ye shall know that I am the LORD.” So I prophesied as I was commanded and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And when I beheld, lo the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above.

 

That’s where we hope to stop tonight. If it pleases the Almighty God when we get into the New Year we’ll pick it up from there. How many of you are sure you will see the New Year? Are you sure? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) No doubt about it! I will see you in the New Year. (Amen!)

 

As we learnt in the last Holy Ghost that God will start by arranging a divine appointment and then He will provoke a discussion. After that He will issue a decree or set of decrees. In the story we are looking at here He arranged a divine appointment between Ezekiel and the dry bones. And then He provoked a discussion by asking Ezekiel “Can these bones live?” And now He issued a decree to Ezekiel. He said, “son of man prophesy – prophesy to the dry bones.” And the Almighty God has decided that tonight prophecies will come your way. (Amen!)

 

Now how come, that God asked Ezekiel to prophesy? Amos 3:7-8 says Surely the Lord God will not do a thing but He reveals His secret unto His servants the prophets, and then after He has revealed His secret to His prophets, then the prophets will now prophesy. The Lord has revealed a secret to me tonight that the joy of somebody will be full here tonight. (Amen!)

 

One thing we have discovered is that God loves to work through men. In Gen. 2:19-20 After God created the animals He brought them to Adam to see whatever name Adam will call them: And whatever name he called them, that was the name they bear up till today. He brought one to him he said, “This one shall be called a lion,” and it is a lion till today. God could have named the animals Himself but he decided to use Adam to name them. As a matter of fact when you read Gen. 2:21-23 you will discover that it was Adam who named his wife “Woman” after God formed woman out of the rib that He took from Adam and brought her to Adam. Adam said ‘Oh’, said, “This is the bone, of my bone, flesh of my flesh, she shall be called ‘Woman.’” And from that day till today whenever you see somebody who can be married to a man you call her what? ‘Woman’ God loves to work through men. It is my prayer that He will work through us tonight. (Amen!)

 

Now because prophecy is very prominent in what God wants to do tonight, I would need to talk to you very briefly on the power of prophecy.  When a Word of Prophecy comes through a true prophet of God, it is an extremely powerful thing. Whenever God speaks through His prophet you better pay close attention. In. 1 Samuel 2:19 the word of God made it clear there that when God speaks through His prophet before the saliva from the mouth of that prophet will touch the ground the word of God spoken is already done. That’s why I want to repeat one more time-the joy of somebody will be full here tonight. (Amen!)

 

The reason why prophecy is so powerful, the one that really comes from God, that is, that it is God speaking in the language of men. And when God speaks, it is done Ps. 33:8-9 It says, Let the whole earth fear before Him because He spake and it is done. Just as He said let there be light and there was light. So I am saying, He saying through me to you tonight that in all the lives of the children of God here gathered there will be light tonight! (Amen!) I didn’t hear your ‘Amen!’ (Amen!) That’s why 2 Chron. 20:20 says, “Believe in the Lord your God so shall ye be established. Believe His prophets so shall ye prosper.” Somebody is going to prosper here tonight. (Amen!) So there is tremendous power in the Word of Prophecy particularly if it is coming from God through a true prophet.

So how should I relate to a word of prophecy? If I hear a word of prophecy what must I do?

 

The first thing you should do is receive it by faith, even if you don’t understand how it could ever happen. Once God speaks, receive it by faith. You may not understand how it can ever be, but if it is God who has spoken, it shall come to pass.

 

In Luke 1 if you read from verse 34 to 38 the Bible says an Angel had come to tell a virgin and to tell her that she was going to become the mother of a special son. And then the lady, the young virgin said “How can this be? I don’t even have a husband yet? I don’t understand.” And the Angel went on to say that the Holy Ghost will overshadow you, the power of the Most High shall come upon you. That was even more confusing than before. “I was talking about getting married and You are talking about Holy Ghost overshadowing me what does that mean?” But at the end the lady said, “I don’t understand what You are saying, How it can come to pass I do not know, but be it unto me according to Your word.”There is somebody here tonight, the word of God may come to you in a way you find difficult to understand. A prophecy may come out and you know this prophecy is mine but you may not understand how can it be. I have good news for you. If you can just receive it and say ‘Amen’ God will work out the details. (Amen!)

 

I was sharing with our senior pastors yesterday, several years ago, more than twenty years ago, I went to America and I stopped at a town called Dallas to change plane to continue to Tulsa, and God spoke to me and said, “Son this town Dallas shall be the Head quarters of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in America.” I said ‘Amen!’ At that time we don’t even have a house fellowship in America. How can you be talking about Headquarters in a place where you have no church? Even the Headquarters in Nigeria at Ebute-Metta we were still struggling with some people over the land. But God began to move, He saw a man and told him to go and buy a piece of land. The man said, “I don’t need the land.” God said, “Just buy it. It is not for you is for somebody who is coming.” And when the time came the man saw one of our Pastors and God told him, “That’s the man for whom you bought the land. Hand over the land to him.”

 

When God makes a promise, you may not know how He will do it. Just understand He is the Almighty. And I am prophesying to you now in His name: every problem you brought here tonight will become a testimony! (Amen!) When you hear a word of prophecy – number one receive it by faith.

 

Number two, please do not ask God for signs because if you ask Him for signs you may get what you do not bargain for. In Luke 1:13-20 an Angel brought a word to Zacharias. Told him, “You are going to have a son, he is going to be great etc. etc. ” and Zacharias said, “How can I know that this will be so?” He had a wife. It’s just that himself and the wife they were old. And he was a High Priest, somebody who should be able to trust God. He said, Give me a sign. “So the Angel said,” “you want a sign, I will give you one. You will not be able to talk until the boy is born.” When you hear a word of prophecy receive it by faith but don’t ask God for signs.

 

Number three, if you have any doubt concerning a word of prophecy, please keep your mouth shut. Don’t speak it out – if you have any doubt at all because your doubts will not stop what God wants to do. But your doubt, if you vocalize it, can cause trouble for you. In 2 Kings 7:1-2 there was a prophet, Elisha by name, he made a prophecy that was really unbelievable. At a time of very severe famine he prophesied that by the following morning a bag of rice in Oyigbo will be costing N10.00. (Amen!) Which of course sounded impossible and then one chief said, “Even if God were to open windows in heaven can this thing be?” The man of God turned to him and said, “You will see it with your eyes but you won’t eat part of it.” Anytime God sends a word even if you find it difficult to believe, keep your mouth shut. The only thing you could say is just say ‘Amen!’ and leave it at that.

 

And then the fourth thing that you should do ….

 

Thank You Father. The Lord said there is a woman here tonight that’s been told that you can never, never have a child. The Lord asked me to tell you there will be a shaking in your womb very soon. (Amen!) Thank You! Thank You! Let’s give the Lord a big hand! That’s going to come very quickly! Alleluia! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord!

 

Now the next thing you should do when you receive a Word of Prophecy is that you must pray your prophecy into manifestation. As soon as God gives you a word, grab it and keep praying until it comes to pass. In 1 Kings 18:41-45 Elijah said, “I have heard the sound of the abundance of rain.” In other words he was prophesying that there will be abundance of rain. And yet there had been no rain for three and half years and the sky was clear, no cloud at all but he prophesied because he heard God told him there was going to be abundance of rain and he prophesied it. And I am prophesying to someone today – “In your business there will be abundance of rain. (Amen!) But then after Elijah prophesied, he prayed seven times before the rain fell. He kept on praying: “I know what I heard. God spoke. God won’t lie. What He said must come to pass.” So he kept on praying. He held on to God until the miracle happened. Somebody is going to pray tonight and pray and pray until there is a breakthrough in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

Now if prophecy is this powerful, how can we provoke a prophecy? How can we get God to speak through His servants? Prophecies come whenever God is particularly near. When I say God is particularly near you all know that God is everywhere at all times but once in a while you yourself will know. “Ah-ah God is here in particular.” I mean some of us will remember June of this year when we began the series on ‘Reversing the Irreversible’. The power of God came down so mightily I couldn’t even continue the preaching. I have good news for you, I can feel His presence tonight, I believe He’s going to be greater than June. (Amen!)

 

So if God, being particularly near, will provoke a prophecy and Ps. 22:3 tells us that God inhabits the praises of His people, then you know that when we begin to praise God the way we ought to, He draws near and when He draws near, prophecy will begin to flow. So in order to provoke prophecy basically what is required is intense praise and worship. When you are praising Him the way you ought to and to you make Him happy then even if He didn’t want to speak before, He will begin to speak. I am sure you know yourself, at least before you became a Christian, how the drummers, the musician used to take all your money from you. You went to attend a party, the money in your pocket you borrowed it, but then when you got there, the musician began to call your name and he began to give you titles that you don’t even have. He will say your father is the king of the land where you are a stranger. He calls you the “Emergency contractor” and before you know it your head begins to swell. You are a messenger but he says you are a Managing Director and then you take the money in your pocket and give it to him. When you are going to give him the money something inside of you is telling you: you borrowed this money… You say shut up when we get home we will settle that.”

 

When you praise a man, he will do what he didn’t plan to do. Man is made in the image of God. When you praise God, the way you ought to prophecy will begin to flow. If you read 2nd Kings chapter 3 from verse 14-20,…

 

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight with a bent back. He said your back is straightening up now. (Amen!) All glory be to God! Your back is already straightening up.

 

In 2 Kings 3:14-20 when Elisha wanted to prophesy, he said “Get me a minstrel. Get somebody who can sing, somebody who can praise God, somebody who can worship Him. “And when that fellow came in and began to praise God the way he ought to, the Bible says the hand of God came upon him. And tonight at the appropriate time as we begin to praise Him, as we begin to worship Him, I am believing God that a word will come for somebody here tonight in Jesus name. (Amen!)

 

But let’s go a step further and learn how to provoke personal prophecy. When we are in a crowd like this prophecies could come – after all if yourefuse to praise God and the rest of us are praising God who will know that you are not praising Him? But when it is between me and God how do I get God to send a word to me personally?

 

The first thing we need to know is that God is Sovereign. Ps. 115:3. It says our God is in the heavens and He does as He pleases. He does as he pleases. So it doesn’t matter. He can speak to me. He can speak to you. He can speak to just one person out of all this crowd. All you need to do is get Him to speak one word to you and everything will change.

 

In Matt. 8:8 the Centurion said to Jesus, “You don’t need to come to my house. Speak a word only. You just prophesy and say my servant is well that’s all.” One word only! And I’m sure somebody is here tonight who will love to hear just one word from God. Whoever you are may I tell you on behalf of the Lord, “It will be well.” (Amen!) I say it will be well. (Amen!)

 

To provoke personal prophecy – Prophecy for you on your own, there are certain things you must do. Three simple things so that you will be able to remember them – number 1 – PUT GOD FIRST – In everything in your life put God first. In 1 Kings 17:8-16 in the story of the widow of Zarephath when Elijah came to her and said, “Give me water to drink.” you must know that at that time water was scarce because at that time there had been no rain for one year, but she was willing to share the water she had with the man of God. Then when the man of God asked for food she said, “I’m sorry I have only one meal left.” The man of God said, “Put my own first. Give me the food first. I am a servant of the Most High so put God first and answer me first. It was because she was willing to put God first, that’s why a personal prophecy came to her. And the man of God said, “From now on until the famine is over there will be abundance in this house.” And I’m saying to somebody here tonight, from now on, just as we heard, God will make room for you! (Amen!)

 

I have told you the story before of a small girl who came to my office and said, “I have been saving money to travel abroad but God spoke to me and said I should go and give the money to you.” I’m sure you remember the story. I had some serious need, but I’m not the kind of people who will tell the congregation this is my need. But we had a meeting, School of Disciples and so I told the disciples, about one thousand of them then, I said I have some needs. I want you to pray that God will perform a miracle. I didn’t tell them what I needed because if I had told them, I’m sure they will want to take a special offering. And if I do it that way it won’t be a miracle any more. So they prayed and left. Sunday morning this little girl came and said, “God spoke to me and said I should go and give you this envelope. I’ve been saving this money so that I can travel abroad. “Number one I was surprised that God could speak to such a small girl, but because she said “God said.” So I took the envelope and I wasn’t expecting anything serious in the envelope and I prayed for her and I told her, “You want to go abroad? You will go.” That was a personal prophecy. She left. I opened the envelope. “Inside the envelope was N500 which was a lot of money in those days, which solved all the problems I had completely.

 

Weeks passed I didn’t see this little girl again. Then one day she came. Taking a look at her I knew she must be coming from America because the cheeks were already rosy. Glory be to God! “Ah my little girl where have you been?” And she told me the story. She said, “I have a friend in school and the father came to my parents and said, “Please, we are travelling abroad and our daughter said she will want to go with her friend. Please allow your daughter to go with our daughter.” So she went! All expenses paid! Today I’m saying to somebody here, in a way you cannot understand the Almighty God will meet all your needs! (Amen!)

 

If you want a personal prophecy, number one put God first. Number two go the extra mile in taking care of God’s prophet. In other words you must take care of the prophet of God in an extra way. In 2 Kings 4:8-17 it tells us the story of the Shunammite woman who saw a servant of God passing by and compelled him to come to her house to eat. You know the story very well – she compelled Elisha to come and eat and after Elisha tasted the first meal and found it so delicious, according to the Word of God, any time he was passing by after that he will branch at the woman’s house and say, “Sister, I just come to say how, how are you? “And the woman will say, “Ah you are welcome sir, the table is set.” And after some time the woman said, “No, no, no! Don’t just come for occasional lunch. Let us build a house for you so you can sleep and eat breakfast lunch and dinner.”

 

The Bible says one day the man of God said, “Call this woman, this woman who had been taking care of us for so long: “Woman what do you need?” The woman said, “I need nothing.” And then the man of God found out that she was barren and she was old and the man of God said, “Ah good! You have money to buy me food. You have money to build me house but you can’t buy a child. I have a God who can provide a child free of charge.” And the man of God said, “Woman nine months from now you will have a baby boy.” Everyone of you barren here tonight, in the Mighty name of Jesus, this night will mark your turning point! (Amen!)

 

I have a friend. He’s been very kind to me. He’s been taking good care of me from 1977 and then all of a sudden the devil tried to kill him and a personal prophecy came to him. I remember telling him, way back in 1977, you will not die until I am ready to release you. That’s 25 years ago! I’m telling you in 1977 he actually died but God raised him again because a word of prophecy had gone out. 25 years later, he is even looking younger now than he was in ‘77. I have a word of prophecy for all of you who are my friends, all of you who want it to be well with me, all of you who want me to reach my goal: From tonight death will see you and run! (Amen!)

 

Number three – To provoke a personal prophecy – any time you bring God an offering, please make it an offering that is worthy of Him and worthy of you. In other words God knows how rich you are. If He knows that all you have is ten naira and you give Him ten naira that’s a worthy offering but if God knows that you are a millionaire and then you bring Him just one thousand naira, He is going to look at you and say, “wait a minute is this offering even worthy of you?” Take an example from Naaman in 2 Kings 5:1-14: It tells you the story of Naaman when he was coming to be healed. In verse 5 the Bible tells us the kind of offering that he brought. It was an offering worthy of God and it was an offering worthy of Naaman himself because he was a General.

 

Thank You Father. O Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s someone here tonight, very soon there will be a sound of singing in your family home. (Amen!) And He said this is because you will be getting married soon! (Amen!) Thank You Father.

 

Now, Naaman brought a worthy offering to God and that’s why the word of prophecy came to him: Wash and you will be clean. You will notice that in the case of Naaman there was no prayer, nobody laid hands on him, he didn’t go to see Elisha privately in his office, Elisha didn’t even come out to him. But there was power in the word of prophecy that came out to him. Always remember when you give God a gift that God is not a beggar. There is a way you can give some thing to the Almighty God that will cause God to say a word to you. And God is speaking to someone here today, He said because of something you are about to do, you will never borrow again. (Amen!)

 

So God asked Ezekiel to prophesy. And then of course Ezekiel obeyed and prophesied. And then after Ezekiel prophesied what happened? Things began to happen! Ezekiel 37. Look at verse 7 there. Ezekiel 37:7. It says, “So I prophesied as I was commanded and as I prophesied there was a noise……” there was what? (A noise,) I didn’t hear you! Is there anybody here today expecting a shout of joy? If you are doing so let me just hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Thank you very much. Just get ready because there is about to be some shouting here tonight… there was a noise…..

 

Now usually there are various ways noise could be caused and one of the ways is by shouting. And when you hear a shout it could mean several things like in Joshua 6:20. When the children of Israel shouted the wall of Jericho was still standing but by the time they finished shouting the wall of Jericho was down. So what does the shout there stand for? It’s telling the Almighty God that we believe You even before we see You in action. We believe Your prophet who said that if we will just shout then the wall will fall. We have not seen it happen like that before, we don’t know how it could happen but because we believe You, we will shout. Is anybody here tonight who believes that the wall of Jericho in his or her life is going to fall? If you are here then let me hear you shout. (Alleluia!) Thank you. Glory be to God. Alleluia! Amen! So they are saying, so when people shout, when you hear us shout it means ‘Lord we believe You even though we haven’t seen the evidence yet!’

 

Another reason why people shout might be because they are telling the Almighty God we know You are a great God and therefore when we praise You we ought to do it greatly. Ps. 48:1 It says great is our God and greatly to be praised. Is anybody here tonight who believes that God is greater than all his problems? Is there anyone here today who believes that our God is greater than all your enemies put together? Is anyone here today who believes that our God can make the impossible possible? Is there anyone who believe that this God is so great that He can reverse the irreversible? There is only one way to show Him let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia’! (Alleluia!) Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Thank You! Alleluia! Thank You!

 

You know, the Lord said there is someone here, from the day you were born, there was a hole in the center of your head that should have filled up within days but it refuse to fill up. He asked you to touch the place now, you will find that it is already filled up.

 

He also said there is someone here, He said you came here, your neck is as stiff as iron rod, He said you can’t turn right or left, when you want to turn you have to turn your entire body. You can check now your neck is completely whole.

 

When you shout, you could be telling God I believe You even though I have not yet seen Your miracle. I believe You are great and therefore You must be greatly praised! Or you might be telling God You are my champion and I know that You have already gotten victory for me, and the only way I can celebrate Your victory is by shouting. We have an example in 1 Samuel 17:51-52 you know the story of David and Goliath. Goliath said, “I am the champion of the Philistines, Israel choose your own champion- let the two of us fight. The champion that wins, his nation wins!” The Bible says when Goliath hit the ground and David ran, took his sword and cut off his head, the whole of Israel did something – they stood up and they shouted because their champion has won the victory. How many of you believe that Jesus has won the victory for you? I’m sure you know very well that when your team is playing a football match, when Nigeria, particularly maybe World Cup or something serious, the street will be completely empty. All of you will be by your television set watching. And when Nigeria scores a goal chiefs, professors, doctors, governors, even the President, they forget whatever they are doing. What do they do? How many of you believe that Jesus has scored a goal tonight? Then let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

 

I have a word of prophecy for somebody for the one who shouted the loudest Alleluia….! (Alleluia!) Thank You Jesus! Your victory shall be permanent in Jesus name! (Amen!) So noise could be generated by shouting. I have to hurry because I can feel the power of God moving mightily here already. And noise could come in another way. It could come through the beating of drums, It could come through the blowing of trumpets. But not all of us can beat drums or blow trumpets but noise could be caused by clapping. Thank you! But let me explain. When you clap. That’s alright, don’t worry you will be clapping soon. Glory be to God! When you clap, you are telling the Almighty God, “I will cooperate with You.” That’s what you mean. It means Lord, I will cooperate with You. Glory be to God!

 

I don’t know if I have told you the story before. The original story of clapping. ….

 

Thank You Father! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Just as we started clapping the Lord said there is a woman here the pregnancy in your womb had been tied by the enemy but that baby had been loosed (Amen!) and you can feel the baby kicking seriously now. Glory be to God!

 

I don’t know if I have told you the story of clapping before. I will tell you again, if I have told you before. I told you that for a long time (God bless the engineers which one is the cracking: you mean the loud speaker itself is clapping!) Glory be to God! They want to do something about it. God bless the engineers! (Amen!) Is not an easy job getting this place wired for this kind of crowd.

 

Once upon a time the fingers watched the birds singing, praising God, so they too wanted to praise God. So they began to wave as hard as they could but no sound came. So after some time, almost by accident two fingers discovered that by cooperating, they could make a noise, “Oh”, So they said, “Oh! so we can even create some music if two fingers cooperate.” So the left hand said to the right hand, “What will happen if the two of us should cooperate? Glory be to God! You are ahead of me now! But let’s do it the way they did it at that time. So you lift up your left hand and with one finger – let one finger cooperate with one palm: and tap the palm with one finger and increase it to two fingers and increase it to three fingers! And increase it to four fingers! And increase it to all five! Glory be to God! So when two hands come together in a clap it is a sign to God that we will cooperate with You. Go ahead, show Him that you will cooperate with Him! Glory be to God! Alleluia!

 

Now, of course you know that when you clap like that it produces a noise but that noise can become a joyful noise. If you start by clapping two at a time, and then you increase it to three at a time, and change it to four, you already create a joyful noise unto the Lord and a miracle will follow tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) So when you clap, you tell God, “I will cooperate with You.” You tell God, “I will make a joyful noise unto You.” You tell the Almighty God that as my champion, as You keep on winning victory for me, I will cheer You on. If somebody is doing well and you want to cheer him on what do you do? You clap! You clap! You clap! Glory be to God forever more! Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

 

That’s why Ps. 47:1 says something; Ps. 47:1 Says something and I want us to take it very seriously because something is going to come out of it tonight. It says: “Oh clap your hands all ye people, shout unto God with the voice of triumph!” Glory be to God!

 

Thank You my Father! Blessed be Your name! Yes the Lord says there is someone here tonight. Thank You my Father! He said I should tell you, your upward journey begins today! (Amen!) If I were you I won’t sit down, I will clap, I will shout, I will jump. I will glorify His holy Name! Your upward journey begins today! (Amen!) Your upward journey begins today! (Amen!) Oh Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Blessed be Your holy Name! Oh thank You Jesus. Blessed! Blessed! Blessed! Blessed! Blessed be Your holy Name! Thank You Jesus. Thank You Lord. Blessed be Your holy Name! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord!

 

I think you can now see. I think you can see how God is working everything together. Shake hands with seven people. Tell them, “I will meet you at the top. I will surely meet you at the top! Without any doubt because my upward journey begins today! I will meet you at the top!” Oh glory! Glory! Glory! Glory! Glory! Glory be to Your holy Name. Thank You Lord! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You Father. Jesus is a mighty God………. Alleluia! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Alleluia! Alleluia! Thank You Father! Glory be to God!

 

The Lord said there is someone here tonight everything that the enemy has stolen from you they will return before the end of the year! (Amen!) Oh thank You my Father!

 

Daddy said there is someone here tonight because of an accident, since the accident happened you couldn’t open your mouth wide, so while every body was shouting you wanted to shout but the mouth won’t open. The Lord asked me to ask you to check – the mouth is open now! (Amen!) The mouth is open now. Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Oh my Father! Thank You Father!

 

The Lord said there is someone here tonight it’s not only that relatives have written you off, it’s not only that friends said that they have written you off, even you have written yourself off. The Lord asked me to tell you, today there’ll be a new beginning! (Amen!) Oh thank You Father! There’ll be a new beginning, Amen! There will be a new beginning. Oh Father my God!

 

Oh I don’t want to stand in the way of the Holy Spirit. Thank You Father! … Let’s praise Him more! Let’s praise Him more! Let’s praise Him more! Let’s praise Him more! Go ahead praise Him! ….. What shall I say unto the Lord? All I have to say is thank You Lord!…..Thank You Father! Thank You Father! Thank You Father! Oh thank You Father!

 

……. it’s not that the enemies are pursuing you alone – you can even hear their footsteps! The Lord asked me to tell you I have turned them back! (Amen!) I’ve turned them back! (Amen!) Oh thank You Father! Thank You Father! Thank You Lord!

 

I can’t go further than this! Oh blessed be Your Holy Name. Blessed be Your Holy Name. Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord!

 

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, before the end of this year, He said I will baptize you in joy! (Amen!) Oh thank You Lord! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Alleluia! Alleluia! Thank You! Thank You! Alleluia! …….. Blessed be Your Holy Name! Thank You Father! Thank You Lord! Glory be to God! Alleluia! ….. Amen! Oh thank You Father!

 

Listen to me brethren, listen to me….. This is a new day! Stretch forth your hands as if you are about to receive something, hold it steady because God wants to drop something in your hands right now. Amen! Alleluia! Thank You Father! Now I want you to say, “I receive.” Say it louder still! “I receive! “Make it loud and dear, “I receive!” And then put your hands together as a clap offering unto the Almighty God. Put your hands together! Put your hands together! Oh thank You Father! And then go ahead give the Lord a big shout! Give Him a big shout! Give Him a big shout! Give Him a big shout! Give Him a big shout!

 

Brethren! Lay your two hands on your head and just prophesy to yourself – prophesy to your children! To your business! Come on prophesy! Just say anything that you know is good towards yourself! Lay your hands on your head! Prophesy to yourself! Tell yourself it is going to be well! Prophesy to your family! Prophesy to your ministry! Prophesy to everything concerning you! … Thank You Lord! So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!) Ah thank You Father! Let’s remain in an attitude of worship!

 

The destiny of someone is hanging in the balance right now! The Almighty has been asking you to surrender your life to Him and you have been arguing. This is the hour now! Hour of salvation! Anyone here who has not yet surrendered his or her life to Jesus, you have a very short time to get to the front tonight. The Almighty God is saying, this is the acceptable time. It is the hour of salvation. So if you are in the crowd and you are not yet born again, before I count ten make sure you are in front here or it may be too late. This is the hour of salvation! God is calling you now! Come and surrender your life to Him! One… two…. Three …

 

No joking about it! Tonight the Almighty God is giving you a rare opportunity to surrender your life to Him. Oh thank You Father! He is calling you now to come and surrender your life to Him! This is the accepted time …. Four…. Five … six …. I know some of you are coming from a long distance but you have to run. Today is the day of salvation! The Almighty God is calling you now! Today is not a day of jokes. It is the day when the Almighty God has come down heavily in our midst. And He wants to save your soul! You must come now! Six…., seven……

 

Those of you who have already come please begin to pray! Begin to talk to the Almighty God! And say, “Father I have come to surrender my life to You! Save my soul! Save my soul! Save my soul! Have mercy on me Lord! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me Lord! Have mercy on me Lord! Lord I have come to surrender my life to You! Have mercy on me Lord! Save my soul! Oh Almighty God save my soul tonight! Be merciful unto me! Be merciful unto me! Be merciful unto me!”

 

Come from all over the place! Seven…… hurry up! I know some of you are coming from a long distance, but hurry up now! Eight now! This is the hour of salvation. It is God who is calling you to come and surrender your life to Him! And as you come begin to call on Him and say, “Lord have mercy on me! Save my soul! Save my soul! Be merciful unto me oh Lord! Be merciful unto me oh Lord! Oh be merciful unto me save my soul! Save my soul! Forgive all my sins! Become my Lord, become my Saviour!” And those of you who are still coming you better hurry up because this is the closing hour!

 

Let’s do two things while we are waiting for our new brothers and sisters. Number one, those of us who have testimonies from the past Holy Ghost Services, you want to share the testimonies with us, you please come to the back of the altar now where some pastors will listen to your testimonies and they may bring about three or so of them forward later on in the service. So if you have testimonies from the past Holy Ghost Services of what God has done for you come quickly to the back of the altar now and you will be attended to there.

 

Number two in order that the counselors might be able to attend to our new converts I want you to take just five minutes and quietly thank God for everything He has done for you. Count your blessings one by one and when you’ve done that I want you to gather together things you want God to do for you tonight because we’ll be praying very soon. I am telling you; this is a night you will never forget for the rest of your life, (Amen!) So for about five minutes, first of all thank the Almighty God for all He has done and point by point get ready things you are going to ask Him to do for you tonight. I can assure you He’s here! No doubt about it at all! So as quietly as possible, in five minutes or thereabouts, thank the Almighty God for all he has already done for you. And then get ready those things that you want Him to do for you…… Thank You Father! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

Now it is time to pray. Let’s stand on our feet. As many of us who have anything to say thank You to God for – anyone that God has done anything whatsoever for since he or she was born, particularly those of us God has already spoken to tonight. Let’s praise Him by shouting one big ‘Alleluia!’. (Alleluia!) Thank You Father! (Amen!)

 

Now the prayers tonight are special because in December there won’t be Holy Ghost Service. It’s only the Congress that we’ll have.. So this might be the last prayer you are praying at Holy Ghost Service before the New Year. So I want you to pray this prayer with all your strength and I am telling you as a man of God, God is here tonight. I mean God is here tonight! (Amen!)

 

So I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, “Father.” Loud and clear: “Father! Please shake everything that must be shaken to set me completely free tonight! Everything that must be shaken, shake it oh Lord!” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! Tonight everything that must be shaken, every evil foundation that must be shaken, loose so that I might be set free tonight completely! Shake everything that must be shaken tonight that I might be completely free! … In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

I want you to call on Him and say, “Father from tonight, let there be shouts of joy in my family house.” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! … In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

The next prayer is for a few people, only those who believe on some of the prophecies we have been hearing, so those people will say, “Father, I’m on my way to the top now – let nothing stop me! Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! ,…. In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

And then you continue and say, “Father make a way for me.” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.” Oh Lord make a way for me. Make a way for me oh Lord!” …… In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

And then you call on the Almighty God and say, “Father, tonight, speak life to my dry bones! Let my dry bones live! “Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

The next prayer point is similar to the last one and you will say, “Father, Reverse the Irreversible in my life! Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! …. Glory be to Your holy name! In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

And here comes a very crucial prayer point. Say, “Father let every problem in my life become a giant testimony.” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! …. In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

Now, tell Him what are those problems – all the problems in your lives, that you want to become giant testimonies, begin to tell Him one by one: I want this one to become a testimony! I want this one to become a testimony! I want this one to become a testimony! Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! Tell Him your private problems. Alleluia! Thank You! Oh Alleluia! In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

Now the Bible says we are to love our neighbours like ourselves so I want you to please stand, if you are not standing, and join hands with your neighbours. It’s time to pray for your neighbour. Just say, “Father make a way for him.” Go ahead, talk to the Almighty God! “Make a way for my brother, Make a way for my sister!” Pray! “Lord make a way for this brother!”……

 

Now before I pray for you, because of the law of harvest that whatsoever you sow that you shall reap and that the harvest is always greater than the seed sown, I want you to pray for me. Wish me whatever you wish yourself…..

 

I want you to go on your knees now. Oh Thank You Father! I want your ‘Amen! to be loud and clear. In the Mighty name of Jesus! (Amen!) In the wonderful name of Jesus! (Amen!) … Father, I thank You for this wonderful night. I thank You for Your children who are able to come! Accept our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen!) Father, tonight I stand as Your representative to these people and in Your name I am prophesying to them – every one of you here tonight who had given your life to Jesus – you shall reach the top! (Amen!) Every obstacle shall crumble! (Amen!) Nothing will stop you on the way! (Amen!) Every obstacle shall crumble! (Amen!) Every distraction shall vanish! (Amen!) God will make a way for you! (Amen!) The Almighty God will make a way for you! (Amen!) The One who is the way Himself will make a way for you! (Amen!) The One who made a way in the Red Sea will make a way for you! (Amen!) Beginning from today, every problem in your life will become a testimony! (Amen!) From today everything that had been carrying you, you will begin to carry! (Amen!) From today you will become the supporter of those who have been supporting you! (Amen!) You will become an amazement to your enemies! (Amen!) Whatever you touch will prosper! (Amen!) Your dry bones shall live! (Amen!) Every Irreversible in your life shall be reversed! (Amen!) There’ll be shouts of joys in your families! (Amen!) So shall it be! (Amen!) Your joy shall be full! (Amen!) Your joy shall be overflowing! (Amen!) Forever and ever so shall it be! (Amen!) In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) If you believe that, go ahead, give the Lord a big, big round of applause!

 

…… Hand bills and banners and anything …… else print as many as possible and distribute. If you don’t have all those or in addition to all those, make sure you get aprons. I am going to wear my own now……. to the market, to everywhere they will read information on you. The dress, the material doesn’t have to be costly, even if you don’t have the money for cloth, you can use cardboard. I want you to know that the purpose of advertisement is to attract attention. And the more awkward you look the more attention they will pay. In the past when I wear my own, my driver will wear his own and when we get to a busy place we will park the car I will come out of the car and hold a newspaper and pretend to be reading. As I am reading the newspaper, people will be reading me and then I will send my driver to go and buy boli and he knows it is for a purpose so when he gets to the boli seller wearing his own he will point to one banana that is not yet roasted at all and say, “This is the one I want ” so that he can stay there for a long time so that all those who want to buy plantain or those who are passing by, they will read the information. Although on more than one occasion we had to run away because as soon as they discover who is reading the newspaper they started gathering for prayers!

 

There’s another example you could use, it’s called the hand band. You have the piece of cloth with the information about the Congress and the dates and every thing on it. Is very useful when you are in a go-slow. You wind down the window of your car and then you hold your hand like this and everybody will want to see what is on your hand. Or if you are in a bus you put your head on the seat and hold this. They will read what is there.

 

But there is another way I know some of you know about the face cap that’s very good. If you have the money for that do it. If you don’t have the money for face cap do my own type just cut a piece of cloth or cardboard write the information about the Congress on it and tie the rope at the bottom not at the top ….. it’s that it doesn’t cover my head so I can pray while I am still wearing it.

 

But you can even go a step further than this one. When we were in the primary school there was a story about Satan wearing a cap with one side red and the other side white. We want to beat Satan at his game so you can get your own cap one side can be written in red the other side can be written in blue. Whenever people see something strange they will want to watch and everywhere you find an opportunity put a stick and write,…..

 

The Angels are singing Hosanna in the highest! You know that one right? So you will just change it slightly! Hosanna to the Highest! My showers are falling. Hosanna to the Highest! Hosanna to the Highest! Hosanna to the Highest! My showers are falling. Hosanna to the Highest! Let me hear you sing it. Now I want you to know that that song is a prophecy. (Amen!) As you sing it, so shall it be! (Amen!) So let me hear sisters first. Brothers! Very good! In Yoruba, it’s also very simple. So from today now, your own showers of blessing can begin to fall as you go about singing and dancing! Hosanna to the Highest! Hosanna to the Highest! My showers are falling. Hosanna to the Highest …… Who is the first one to receive the showers of blessing? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) The Almighty God will bless you as you work for Him in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

There will be no Holy Ghost Service on the first Friday of December so that we can use all that time to tell everybody that something extraordinary is about to happen in Nigeria at Redemption Camp. People are coming from all over the world. People are coming! I’ve just returned from America and I met some people who wanted to come. We had a serious problem getting them a seat from Europe to Nigeria during that period because all planes are fully booked. And they are asking what’s happening in Nigeria? We are going to the Congress! And they are coming to the Congress and the Almighty God is waiting here for them! (Amen!)

 

There are some wonderful musicians that are coming to team up with our brothers and sisters here. I met two old men who have been singing with Billy Graham for years. I heard them sing I said, “Would you please like to come to Nigeria? They said, “All you need to do is just tell us when!” They are coming to sing at the Congress and other great things are going to happen. Remember it is going to be televised throughout the whole world, Alleluia! So get ready, it’s going to be very beautiful indeed. The showers of blessing will begin in your life today! (Amen!)

 

Will you like to sing the song once or twice more? Sing it as a prophecy: Hosanna to the Highest! Hosanna to the Highest! Hosanna to the Highest! My showers are falling. Hosanna to the Highest! Hosanna to the Highest! Hosanna to the Highest! Hosanna to the Highest! My showers are falling. Hosanna to the Highest! Hosanna to the Highest! Hosanna to the Highest! Hosanna to the Highest! My showers are falling. Hosanna to the Highest! If you believe that shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

 

All right now the Hour of Power has come! Remember in the past two, three months we’ve been praising the Almighty God and as we praise Him, He begins to perform miracles and something happened recently which I was sharing with the Pastors. I didn’t tell them the full detail. I did not tell them the full detail. A certain song just kept on leaping up in my spirit and the song just refused to let me go and just looking back now the first Sunday that that song came back to my spirit and we sang it at the Headquarters the week that followed. In one week I counted seven major miracles in my life! I want us to sing that song tonight so that what God has started in my life will also extend to you. (Amen!) It is a very simple song. You all know it “Melody in my heart there is a melody in my heart today…” Your own side is too loud…..

 

Let me be sure that the people can reply. Let’s hear from the brothers – Melody in my heart there’s a melody in my heart today …… Good! Now sisters. Good! It’s a beautiful song. It’s a song you will sing and dance to. It goes on to say, “Melody to Jesus, Melody to my King! Melody to my Lord! He is my Redeemer! He is my Physician! He is my Provider! He is my Defender! He is my Protector!” So we are going to stand up and sing that song and as we sing the song the yokes in your life will be destroyed! (Amen!) Healing will flow like a river! (Amen!) The power of God will come strongly upon you! (Amen!) And your joy will overflow! (Amen!) Are we ready now? Melody in my heart, there is a melody in my heart today. Melody in my heart, today …! Alleluia! That’s a song I want you to take home with you today. But in the meantime we’ll let Kunle Ajayi lead us. We will sing and praise the Almighty God and as we do so those of you who have been healed tonight – I mean real physical healing – you will dance forward so that we can praise God together. And as we sing and dance more healing will follow! (Amen!) More deliverance will follow! (Amen!) I didn’t hear you say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!) That’s prophecy! I say more healing will follow! (Amen!) More deliverance will follow! (Amen!) More victory will follow! (Amen!) Okay over to …

 

… the serious works that the Almighty God did tonight just give Him glory! Very quickly, very quickly let’s find out what is this testimony? Find out for us what is it God did specially tonight? We can never thank Him enough!

 

Listen to them and bring forward just a few of them! Just a few of them! Anyone just listen to them. They may have something special, maybe one of those cases mentioned or something else! The cases of those with hole in the head! I think I have called you. Let me see all of you whose hole in the head have been healed. Come this way let me see you first. Stand here so that I can see how many of you that God gave that miracle to tonight. But in the meantime, Pastors, listen to the others find out what else God did in their lives so that… Oh glory be to God! Isn’t the Lord good? Let’s give the Lord a big hand for these people! Glory be to God! Amen!

 

Then I remembered the case of someone whose back was bent and the back was straightening. Ah, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine …. Oh Lord God Almighty! Let’s give the Almighty God a big round of applause! Ah, who can remind me of the others that came. There was somebody whose neck could not turn. You have to turn your body before you could turn your neck but your neck is okay now… one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ah! Let’s give the Lord another round of applause! Can somebody remind me of any other, any other one? Now Pastors have you found some other one’s please? There are so many testimonies here we need to hear one or two others. Where are the Pastors? Are you listening to their testimonies? Do you have anyone that is special that you want us to hear about?

 

Oh the one that had an accident and the mouth couldn’t open wide where is the fellow? That’s one. Open your mouth now, let me see! Ah! Glory be to God! Alleluia! You also have the same case? Which is the other one? You also couldn’t open! Oh the one with the hole on the head. That one is covered now. Glory be to God! Is any other fellow that the mouth couldn’t open wide? We saw one: Alright if we saw one that means that is the only one that is here. Glory be to God! Oh there is a second one over there! Praise the Lord! Alleluia! I can’t remember all the ones that God called. Can any one remember anyone? Yes there was a case of a woman whose pregnancy was tied. The pregnancy was loosed and the baby is kicking very well. That’s the woman there! Oh Glory be to God! Let’s see her! Glory be to God! Safe delivery in Jesus mighty Name! (Amen!) Glory be to God!

 

Now because of time I am going to pray a special prayer for those of you who have come forward to show the goodness of God, so that others who are trying to hide what God is done will learn a lesson. “Father for all these Your children that You healed tonight and they came forward to show it I hereby decree that they will never know sickness again! (Amen!) Every one of them, I hereby decree that accident will be far away from them! (Amen!) I decree that from today, shouts of joy will never leave their home! (Amen!) I decree that their miracles will be permanent in Jesus name! (Amen!) Thank You Father! In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) God bless you! You can dance back to your place now!

……….

“Bro. Gabriel! Stella Francis! Dapo Fadahunsi! Aderiola Omosehin! And Mrs Hannah Modupeola! They will come but while they are coming it will be time to say thank You to God for a very wonderful night. Has the Lord been wonderful to us tonight? I can’t hear your answer! (Yes!) Or maybe I should ask the question, Has the Almighty God been wonderful to you tonight? (Yes!) So let’s say thank You to the Almighty God and give Him ……. then we’ll have the final blessing and we will be on our way! Two, two minutes please!

 

“Praise the Lord! Alleluia! My name is Dapo Fadahunsi! Praise the Lord! Amen! Yes at the last Holy Ghost Service. Give the Lord a big round of applause for ….! I know some of you are tired but if I hear that my brother went to the toilet out of him came a frog no matter how tired I may be I will shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) If I hear that my mother came to the camp ground without my even knowing about it that the problem that the doctors have called cancer and fibroid disappeared – no matter how tired I may be I will still shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) If I hear that my brother who has lost two brothers to cancer and he was already suffering from the cancer of the bone marrow himself and he came and God picked him out of the crowd and spoke a word and healed him, I will jump up and shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Because all these things prove one thing – that God is in our midst! Many of us may not know it but God is here and it means every prophecy that has gone forth to me will come to pass! (Amen!) What about your own? Well let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

 

Let’s stand now on our feet “Father we bless Your holy name for a very wonderful night. Thank You for the souls saved! (Amen!) Thank You for the people who are healed! (Amen!) Thank You for the people who are delivered! (Amen!) Thank You for the testimonies! (Amen!) Thank You because we are on our way up now and nobody will stop us! (Amen!) Thank You because You will make a way for us! (Amen!) Thank You because our joy will never end! Accept our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

“Father bless the thanksgiving offering of Your children. Sanctify it! Use it for Your glory! And I pray O Lord that every one of Your children here tonight will never borrow again! (Amen!)

 

And as you go home God will go with you. (Amen!) His presence will go with you! Miracles will continue in your life and by the time we meet in December for the Congress you will already be drenched in showers of blessing! (Amen!) So shall it be! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

If you believe that shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Pastor E. A. Adeboye
