David said, If the Lord had not been on our side, if the Almighty God had not been on our side in the face of enemies known and unknown, enemies at home, enemies in the place of work, enemies in the house of the husband, enemies in the house of the wife, enemies that appear to be friends in spite of all these we are still around, alive, well, in the Lord.

In Exodus 33:15 Moses said to God, he said if you are not going with me than don’t ask me to go. Lift your voice, Say Father, in this New Year, everywhere I go, go with me.

Let me possess my possessions! Let me possess my possessions this year! Delight in me O Lord! Delight in me!… In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
David had no major problems until the enemy heard that he had been anointed king. The enemy had already heard that this year is going to be heaven on earth for you. Lift your voice to the Almighty and say Father, You who gave victory upon victories to David give victory upon victories to me this year. Open your mouth and call on him….In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
There are many of us who have a notebook full of promises of God and we have been ticking right those that have come to pass but there are still many. I want you to call on God today: before the end of January Lord, fulfill all your promises! Lift your voice to the Almighty God! Before the end of January fulfill all Your promises to me! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
Brethren the more you serve God the more He rewards you. Lift your voice to Him and say Father this year give me great opportunities to serve You and the grace to serve You! Let’s talk to the Almighty God… In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Thank You Jesus! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
Now I want you to pray for your neighbor now. Hold them by the hand and say, Father, this Your child that we are holding onto. let this year be pure heaven on earth in his life! Talk to the Almighty God! This Your child that I am holding onto Father let this year be pure heaven on earth for him, in every facet of his life let it be pure heaven! Pure heaven!

Almighty God let it be pure heaven! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You Lord! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
I want us to pray for our Pastors. If your Pastors are what they should be you won’t have to worry yourself about forces of darkness. Cry to God! And say Father, anoint my Pastor! Make him what he ought to be! Go ahead call on the Almighty God for your pastor. Pray for your pastors. Lord let them be what You want them to be. Anoint them! Anoint them heavily! Purify them! Sanctify them! Empower them! Strengthen them! They are Your ministers O Lord! Strengthen them! Flush out of them anything that is not of God! Whatever is hindering Your anointing in their lives, Father destroy! Lord have mercy on Your Pastors… In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
Now you are going to be praying for yourself very soon but there is one prayer I want you to pray before you even pray for yourself. The Bible says it is not of him that willeth, it is not of him that runneth but it is of God that showeth mercy. Cry to God on your knees. Go on your knees and say Father have mercy on me! Mercy! Mercy! Mercy! Mercy! Mercy oh! Mercy this year! Have mercy O Lord! Mercy ohhh! Have Mercy! Have mercy Lord! Have mercy! Mercy! Mercy! Mercy Lord! Your Word says mercy rejoiceth over judgment. Mercy Lord! Mercy! Have mercy Oh! Have mercy O Lord! Have mercy! Have mercy! Have mercy my Father and my God! Have mercy! Have mercy! Have mercy Oh! Have mercy Lord! Your mercy endureth forever Lord – Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me Lord! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me Lord! Have mercy! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me! And now go ahead and ask God for whatever you want Him to do for you this year. Go ahead. Present to Him your individual requests now.. Let’s begin to bring our prayer to a close. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)And then before I pray for you I want you to pray for me too. Just wish me whatever you wish yourself. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)Father in heaven we glorify Your name; we bow down before You. King of Glory, I AM that I AM! , Ancient of Days! Jehovah Shalom, Prince of Peace, Jehovah Nissi, the banner over us, Jehovah Rapha, God our Healer, Jehovah Jireh, the Great Provider, Jehovah El-Shaddai, the God that is more than enough, Glory be to Your Holy Name! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Every prayer of Your children tonight, before the sun rises tomorrow, let each one become a testimony. Surprise us this year O Lord! Let it be well. Let it be well with everybody. Every plant you didn’t plant in Your church, in our homes, in our offices, in our bodies, our souls, our spirits uproot them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)
Hold us by the right hand O Lord and lead us throughout this year. (Amen!) Thank You my Father! Glory be to Your Name! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen! Let someone shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)
Well shake hands with one or two people that you haven’t seen yet and say, Happy New Year! God bless you! Happy New Year! God bless you! And then you may be seated.
Children of January should stand now. If you are born in January let me hear you shout Alleluia! Father we want to commit all these Your children into Your hands. Thank You for allowing them to see another birthday. On their behalf, accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) For these Your children O Lord I am praying that beginning from this month, all the way through the year, every day, give them testimonies. (Amen!) Bless them tremendously. (Amen!) Let this New Year be the best they have had so far. (Amen!) and let them serve You all the days of their lives. (Amen!) In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let someone shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)
All right. Now today we want to begin a series that will be entitled Heaven on the move. So today is Part 1 and I don’t know how many months it will take us. So it is in your interest that you don’t miss any Holy Ghost Service this year at all. It is going to be a very wonderful year for somebody. (Amen!) There is somebody here tonight who is going to dance all the way throughout this year. If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)
On New Year’s Eve we had a Holy Communion Service. You need to hear that sermon. Yesterday night we had another Holy Communion Service. You need to hear that sermon. The two of them combined are likely to shape your future so if you see the people at New Songs tapes I’m sure you’ll get these tapes from them. In fact I want to advise as many of you as can make it, the Thursday before Holy Ghost Service we have Holy Communion Service Don’t miss it!
Acts 3:1-10 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. 7And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. 8And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. There is somebody here tonight for the rest of your life you will be walking and leaping and praising God! (Amen!)9And all the people saw him walking and praising God: 10And 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.
Before the end of this year your neighbors will be filled with amazement at what God had done for you. (Amen!) We say we want to talk about heaven on the move. Those of you who were at the Congress we told you that heaven is a place where sorrow disappears. Why? Because Psalm 16:11 says in His presence there is fullness of joy. I have good news for somebody here tonight. “Every trace of sorrow left in your life will disappear before the sun rises. (Amen!) So in this particular case study we have a lame man who was a picture of problems and missed beauty. They placed him at the gate called Beautiful. “The gate was beautiful; the house of God was beautiful. Those who were coming to the temple to worship they were gaily dressed and here was a lame man. “Sick, poor, bound, lonely, sad, hopeless placed at the Beautiful Gate. “ Beauty” everywhere! Except with him! And there are people like that here tonight. Everybody is shouting, you are shouting too, because if you don’t shout people will look at you and say who is this devil among us? But there is something deep inside that does not make that shout a shout of joy. That thing shall be uprooted tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)
Because Heaven promises in Isaiah 61:1-3 it said I will give you beauty for ashes. In other words if there is anything that is contrary to beauty in your life, the Almighty God says I will replace it. (Amen!) He is not talking to everybody. “anyone who has ashes in their life God says I will replace it with beauty. (Amen!)
This man was a classical example of seeing but not tasting. He could hear the singing in the temple. He could hear the dancing, the clapping, the tambourine but he couldn’t go in. Where they put him that is where he will remain until they come to carry him. He was there to beg not to sing, not to dance, not to rejoice! He was there to see and not to partake! I have a conviction within me that there are some people who have been coming to Holy Ghost Night all these years and they have never shared a testimony. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ this will be the beginning of their testimony. (Amen!)
Because Heaven promises in Psalm 68:19, it said God wants to load us with benefits on a daily basis. Everyday blessings; that as you are thanking God for one today, another on will come tomorrow and another one the day after! Every day getting bigger and bigger and bigger. The Bible calls it loads of blessing. Not tiny blessings – Blessings so big that it had to be carried. I don’t know who I am talking to but I am sure, I am absolutely sure; that before the end of this year somebody will say to God, Father this is too much!!!! (Amen!)
One young man came to me once and said I have a problem. I said what is your problem? because I was ready to praying for him, he said everywhere I turn they gave me a car. I don’t know where to park them. Isn’t that a good problem? How many of you want that kind of problem? Before the end of this year, somebody will have a good problem. (Amen!)
This lame man was a burden to himself and a burden to his relatives. The Bible said they carried him daily. He was over 40 years old. They’ve been carrying him as a baby and they were still carrying him at 40 something. I’m sure he was ashamed of himself, but there was nothing he could do. He was helpless. He didn’t like the idea that they were carrying him at the age of 40 something. I’m going to decree some things tonight that some ladies who by now should be settled in their own homes but they are still managing with Mama, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, your husband will show up this year. (Amen!)
There are some men who by now should be their own landlord but they are still living at the mercy of Papa. In that name that is above every other name, you will move to your own house this year! (Amen!)Over 40! they were still carrying him. He was a burden until one day Heaven was moving by and the burden-bearer stepped in.
In Isaiah 53:4 tells us that one of the names of Jesus Christ is burden bearer. Every one of you here tonight my Father will carry your burdens for you. (Amen!)And because heaven moved past this man he became an amazement. They looked at him . “We know this man. He’s been begging for alms for 40 years. We know this one. How come he’s now walking and leaping and praising God? All those people you have been begging for clothes, those people you have been begging for contracts, before the end of this year my God will surprise you. (Amen!) Pleasant surprises. “A miracle that will cause people to be surprised. That’s what God will give somebody here tonight. (Amen!) I know what it is to be amazed, pleasantly amazed.
I’ve told you the story before A woman brought her child. That child will probably be between 9 and 10. And said this child had never spoken before .“ please pray for this child. I laid my hand on this child and I said, In the Name of Jesus . and the child said ‘Amen!’ I have not prayed yet! I just said: In the Name of Jesus! and the child that had never spoken before said ‘Amen!’. I nearly jumped out of the window. The mother was on the floor rolling! That kind of miracle that will make you roll on the ground for joy God will give you this year! (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said that somebody was making small coffins. The Lord asked me to tell you don’t worry they won’t be for your children. (Amen!)
This lame man was a classical example of stagnation. No progress .“ progress as what? No promotion. Promotion as what? Just on one spot for 40 years. They never carried him to school so how could he learn? But there are many of us like that. Many of us have been on the same scale for years. some of us have been messengers for years. Some of us are living in the same house that was built 100 years ago. Some of us came from the villages to Lagos and we can’t go back home because there is nothing to take back home but that is going to change, That is going to change tonight because when Heaven came by this man, suddenly his stagnation was changed to promotion.
Psalm 75:6-7 says promotion may not come from the East or West or South but as long as God is the judge He will pull down one but He’s going to raise up another. Among those people that God is going to raise up this year, I am one of them! Are you one of them? If that is the case Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said because I want to bless you I will enlarge your capacity to give.
Talking about promotion. I’ve told you that once upon a time when I was a lecturer in one University I won’t mention which one, there was a particular man who was not promoted for 12 years because somebody hid his file. But when his time came there was a change of Head of Department and the new Head of Department said I want to see the file of everybody in my Department. They searched and searched until finally they dug it out where somebody hid it. Your file that had been hidden by the enemy shall be brought out this year. (Amen!)And they discovered this man should have been promoted at least twice and they gave him double promotion. By the time you come back in February, there is someone here who will already be celebrating promotion. (Amen!) This man had many problems but heaven solved them all, All his problems were solved.
Some of us have been thanking God for some problems that were solved but I have good news for you. By the end of this year you won’t be thanking Him for some that were solved it will be that ALL your problems have been solved. If that’s talking about you let me hear your ‘Amen!’ loud and clear! (Amen!)This man was sick and he became well because heaven had made provision for healing only that man didn’t get it till that day. 1 Peter 2:24 it said, by his stripes you were healed. not you are going to be healed .“ you were. Tonight it may not be the first time you heard that passage but God is saying it to you now specially that tonight in the mighty name of Jesus Christ your sickness will disappear (Amen!) Because heaven is on the move. (Amen!)
Let me tell you one or two stories. We came to Sunday school at Ebute Metta some years ago and we were studying the crossing of the |Red Sea and one man just got up and went outside. |I was wondering what’s wrong with him. So I followed outside and I saw him sobbing. Why are you crying sir? He said I just heard a word. “ something the preacher said told me clearly that I’m going to be healed today! We were talking about the crossing of the Red Sea. But he heard a word that he was going to be healed that day. Do you know before the service was over he was well! What did you hear? He said the preacher said all the enemies I have seen thus far I will never see them again forever and the number one enemy he had was hypertension. Somehow he knew it is me, it is me they are talking to. God is talking to someone here today, your sickness will not go back home with you. (Amen!)
I will give you another example. I was invited to Port Harcourt. The Full Gospel Business men they had a programme, they asked me to come and preach. When I finished the first preaching that night one man came and said sir, my wife is sick, in hospital; please could you come and pray for her. So we made arrangement for the following day. The following day we went there. The wife had been completely helpless on the sick bed, she could not even turn but I prayed for her and the one who had not been able to even talk escorted me to the door! I didn’t come to Port Harcourt for this man! I came for a programme, heaven was just passing by and this man tapped into it!
Heaven is passing by tonight, somebody is going to tap into it and your sickness will disappear. If you believe that let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!) He was poor but after heaven passed by he never begged again. After that day he never begged again because heaven had made provision to take care of his poverty.
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said before this year ends you will know that my hand is not shortened. (Amen!)
In 2 Corinthians 8:9 the Bible says that you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ that though He were rich because of you He became poor that you through His poverty might become rich. It’s not the plan of God for you to be poor. Poverty is a curse. If you don’t believe me all you have to do is check what goes on here on the highway. Consider all the cars that the policemen stop, second-hand cars, rickety cars… they will say, stop this one. Ask him to park and when you are there managing with your second hand car and you see somebody coming in a Rolls Royce. They say, Oga we day here ohhhh. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ I curse poverty in your life! (Amen!) Heaven was passing by and poverty disappeared permanently in the life of this man. I have good news for somebody, before this year is over you will no longer be in the society of the poor. (Amen!) Thank You Father!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I have promised to help you. I will fulfill my promise. (Amen!)
Listen to me very carefully. Don’t just say Amen to this – this is for a very special person. God said I’m going to open 3 gigantic doors unto you (Amen!) He said but I’m not opening the doors because of you, I’m opening the doors because of the work of my kingdom. He said therefore everything that comes in through these three doors 50% is yours, 50% belongs to God! (Amen!) You still said Amen to that (Amen!) He will surprise you. (Amen!) I said He will surprise you. (Amen!)
This man was lonely. Everybody going to church. “Quite a crowd! Nobody ever stayed with him. Nobody ever sat down beside him and said hello how are you? Once they take their little coin, the last coin and they threw it to him, they continued on their way. But from that day on he was no longer lonely. To start with he was sleeping, walking, praising God and went straight into the temple. In fact the crowd surrounded him. He was never lonely again. I have a feeling within me that this will be a year of marriages. (Amen!) I just feel it! I believe it is so! I believe loneliness will end this year. (Amen!) Nobody ever paid him attention but suddenly he became the centre of attraction. You know there are some of you who have been forgotten. God will remember you this year! (Amen!)
I’ve told you several stories before. I told you of a sister who came to one of the programmes in Ebute Metta in those days, and the Word came just as it is coming now that there is a sister whose mother didn’t want her to marry. That if the mother does not release her, Mama herself will be buried within 7 days. A Word just came like that and I announced it. I don’t know which sister was concerned. The following day the sister came with the mother. The mother was very furious. That’s the way you stupid prophets spoil the head of our girls, telling my daughter that I will die because I didn’t allow her to marry. I said me? Sister Did I say that? She said the prophecy that came yesterday. What God said is that there is a sister here. Did I mention your name? I said Mama don’t mind her, nobody mentioned her name!! She was just claiming what is not her own. The mother said, oh-oh is that so? She said, all right. She asked the lady to go out and the lady went out and she said Pastor, but is it true that the mother will die.? I said I’m not talking about you oh. I’m not talking about you, but what God told me is going to come to pass, so if you are the one .“ and I’m not saying it is you .“ before the week runs out. whoever it is, is going to be buried. Eh!, I’m not asking her not to marry but who is going to take care of me after.. I said Mama that’s simple; I can tell her and tell the husband to take good care of you. I will make them promise. That’s if she can marry. Within 6 months, this girl who was almost 40 years old and nobody had looked in her direction before got married.
There is somebody here today; anybody who says you will not marry will not see the end of January because loneliness must end!
I don’t need to tell you that the man was barren. He wasn’t married so where will he get children? But I’m sure after heaven moved by him, when he became famous; the man who used to be a beggar now became celebrity. Suddenly things changed. I wasn’t there but I’m sure it wasn’t long before he got married. And I’m sure, very soon children began to come. I’ve good news for those of you who are believing God for the fruit of the womb. This is your year! (Amen!) You better say ‘Amen!’ loud and clear! (Amen!) I say this is your year! (Amen!)
Those who say it will not be so, we will invite then to the naming ceremony because heaven had made provision in John 15:5 the Lord said if only you will abide in me, my words abide in you, you will bring forth much fruit. Not just one, much! Very soon those of you who have been considered barren, when you are coming to the Holy Ghost Service you will need a bus to bring your children. Don’t worry God will provide for taking care of them too.
I want to say ‘Amen!’ to what I’m about to tell you because;
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; I will use you mightily in the days ahead. (Amen!) Alleluia! I’m saying ‘Amen!’ to the next one too.
The Lord said there is someone here; He said you will become a source of joy to your church, (Amen!)
This man was in bondage. He was like a tied goat. Just going round in circles, carried him in the morning, put him by the beautiful gate. He would sit down there beaten by the rain, beaten by the sun, like a goat tied down until heaven moved by. And he became free. You are going to be free! You will begin to enjoy freedom .“ physical freedom (Amen!) financial freedom, (Amen!) spiritual freedom (Amen!)
Many of us don’t know the value of freedom. On the 26th December I was at Kirikiri prison to conduct a carol service. They didn’t allow me to spend the night because I didn’t commit a crime as advised by the President but I discovered certain things. Ah! Those of you who are free, who can sleep when you want, wake up when you want, go where you want, anytime you want you better shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) There is a man who had been in Kirikiri prison this year now will make thirty years! He was sent there in 1977, they have not killed him and he’s not set free! 30 years!!!!
Some of you will say what has God done for me? When we were singing praises he was dancing, he was clapping.30 years! Death sentence hanging over his head! The second day I took the matter to Mr. President and he said he would do something about that. The President of Presidents shall set you free tonight! (Amen!) I say He will set you free! (Amen!)
When I don’t like the baby there the baby dies. And here am I learning to be a doctor. Help me I want to be free. I don’t want this third eye! And on the impulse of the Holy Spirit I pointed my finger to that place. I heard that testimony years later .“ she said the eye disappeared that day. Every one of you with any form of link with the devil you shall be free tonight. (Amen!)
That might be the only reason why we are having the Holy Ghost Service tonight! There are people wherever they go, they just hate them and you don’t know why they hate you, what have I done? Because there is a mark of the enemy! Tonight that mark is gone. (Amen!)
This man was a hopeless case. There was nothing the doctors could do for him. There was nothing the pastors could do for him. The priest saw him there every day. Like somebody said, if God does not help you what can any GO do? But God will help somebody here tonight. (Amen!) He was a hopeless case. As far as people were concerned his fate was sealed. But Heaven made a provision for hopeless cases. Colossians 1:27 it said Christ in you the hope of glory. All of you that the enemy thought they had finished, they are in for a surprise! (Amen!) .“ I say they are in for a surprise. Those that they said your fate is sealed that there is nothing you can do. Your case is settled God will surprise them. (Amen!)
When I was preparing this sermon I remembered a case; I went to visit a family and at that time I didn’t know that the woman of the house was a number one witch and that she had reached an agreement with her husband in the spirit realm that of every two children born one will die one will survive. And there was this little girl that she had given birth to. She was one of those that was to die. In fact that was the day that the girl was to die. We didn’t know at that time so we went there to greet the family and as I was about to leave that girl stretched forward towards me. She was at the back of the mother stretched out, stretched towards me in such a manner as I had not option other than to carry the child. We were to learn later, that this child never allows anyone else to carry her. But something told the girl, you are dying today! So I carried the girl and I prayed. I didn’t know what I was doing! Father bless this child, keep sickness away from her, keep death away from this child. And the yoke was broken! It wasn’t long after that when the mother began to confess: I killed this one, I killed this one, I killed this one, I killed this one .“ the day I was to kill this one ehh this troublesome pastor came by and took the child from me. Today every one of you that the enemy had decided death for I cancel that one in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Alleluia! Amen! God is saying some heavy things tonight. I want to say ‘Amen!’ first. (Amen!)
The Lord said there is someone here tonight very soon they will ask you what is the secret of your greatness. (Amen!)Amen! Amen! Amen!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, the day you share your next testimony the ground will shake! (Amen!)
I know now that tonight is for me because I’m saying ‘Amen!’ again to the next one.
God said there is someone here tonight your hunger for things money cannot buy shall be satisfied! (Amen!)
I mean so you know that can only be me. Oh Thank You my Father. This man before heaven moved past him his middle name was sorrow because he has been sad from the day he knew that he was born lame. Every day when they carried him, they were not very gentle when they carried him. Let’s go and drop you where you can beg so we can go and do our own business. They had known sorrow from day number one, then heaven came by and his sorrow changed to joy.
The Bible said he was leaping. Remember he had never walked before. It would have been good enough to say that he had been walking or running but there is something inside of him that could not be controlled. It’s called joy, joy unspeakable, joy full of glory – he was leaping. In the name of the Almighty God those of you who have been so used to weeping, beginning from today you will be leaping for joy!
There’s a young man that had been coming from America again and again to testify. When I first met him, old as he was, he was always weeping like a baby. He’s married; he’s got children but he’s always weeping! My wife used to say before you begin to weep again .“ don’t start oh! Because he had known so much sorrow. The father left home when he was a child. One sorrow after the other but now it is one miracle after the other.
He was telling his church people, because he’s a Pastor, he said, somehow since I met Pastor Adeboye its one miracle after the other! One miracle after the other! There is somebody here today you will soon testify that since Friday 5th January 2007 it is one miracle after the other!
His sorrow became joy! I will love to give a new name to somebody here today. “ your middle name shall be known as ‘joy’! (Amen!) Announce it to your friends: Do you know I have a new name? My new name is Joy! Joy! Joy! And your joy will never end in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Now because of time, let me leave all the problems of this man. I know all his problems were solved.
But there is something about this man that I want to bring to your attention. The Bible said he expected to receive something. I want to talk briefly on the role of expectation. Many people come to a gathering like this expecting nothing and that’s a pity because if you expect nothing, you get nothing. Luke 11:9-10 it said Ask and you shall be given; seek and you shall find; knock and the door shall be opened unto you! Because it is he that asks that is given; it is he that seeks that will find; it is he that knocks that will have the door opened to him. Do you know that every time I come to the meeting like this, even though I am the main speaker, I come expecting something from God. I listen to the choir – maybe God will tell me something through them. I listen to the first preacher; maybe God will tell me something through him. And even while I am here preaching, I am hearing from God and I try to see which of them is my own. I come expecting! You know the reason some people don’t come to the Holy Ghost Services? They say since they have been coming they have received nothing. Why will they receive when they were not expecting anything? And there are some of us every time we came we receive something. We will keep on receiving (Amen!)Let me give an illustration.
I’ve said this before in the days of my father in the Lord Holy Ghost Communion is once a year during the Convention, Saturday of the Convention. Something told me. “ not a preacher .“ something it must be God that when I drink the wine that that wine is the symbol of the Holy Spirit. That when I drink the wine my spiritual battery will be recharged. Something told me that. “ nobody oh .“ something! So when we come to the Convention there’ll be preaching, singing, dancing .“ I enjoyed all of them but I’ll be waiting for Saturday night! That’s the day I wait for and when the time for Holy Communion. “My father will be preaching, I’ll be interpreting. “And he can preach! And as he’s preaching I will say God let him finish, that’s enough now! Let’s get to the… Expectation! And finally we will get to it.“ we will eat the bread! Then they will say everybody hold your wine till everybody had been served. We were not many then. “ if we were very many in the Convention we will be about 600. So quickly they served everybody and when they say we will drink in the name of the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit ah! “the wine is many a time its Maltina diluted with water. When others drink it they drink diluted Maltina, when Pastor Adeboye drank it oh! Because I expected and I wait a whole year for it! I had to by force control myself so I don’t throw away the glass! Expectation! If you come to the Holy Ghost Service expecting that God the moment your servant says Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) as soon as I shout, take me a step higher! That’s how it will be! It will be unto you according to your expectation.
That woman said if I can touch the hem of His garment. Everyone else was thronging Him, those who were rubbing shoulders with Him, they were rubbing shoulders with Him but she expected. as she touched Him there was a spark in heaven. Jesus said who touched me? Peter said everybody was. He said , no, no, no, no. He said virtue has gone out of me! Expectation!
I beg you this year come expecting because if you come expecting your expectation will not be disappointed! Come expecting because this year in particular there are loads and loads of blessings. Come expecting! I was sitting in a hotel dining room somewhere and a lady came in to eat. Ah! This is Pastor Adeboye!! Ah-ah! God this is how good you are. she came to me and said sir, please, please I said what is it? She said Just shake my hand! What is that? She shook my hand and began to dance. Put the hand on her head and began to dance!! And there were people sitting by me, they have shaken the hand about a thousand times it didn’t mean anything to them! But she shook the hand with expectation. Whatever it is she wanted I’m sure she got. I’m going to do what God asked me to do tonight to your hands so don’t come and shake hands with me. But if you expect when I do what God asks me to do you will get what God wants you to get. (Amen!).
I’ve told you the testimony of a brother. We went to a Holy Ghost Service in Kaduna and I wanted to go to the toilet while the choir was singing and there was this brother who was an usher standing somewhere near the toilet. So he greeted me and I shook hands with him. I didn’t know he was rejoicing. So I went to the toilet. Apparently he has told the other ushers. . He shook my hand, he shook my hand! When I was coming back there were about half a dozen of them! So I shook hands with them. I didn’t know that one of them had received one before. “ he shook my hand the second time and he put his hand in his pocket. He got home and he told the wife who had been barren for years bring your stomach, the GO. shook my hand 2 times! 9 months later the baby came. Your hands will be blessed tonight! (Amen!) I say your hands will be blessed tonight! (Amen!)Thank You Father!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said you will make substantial recovery of lost grounds this year! (Amen!)Thank You my Father!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said you will never be empty again! (Amen!) Let me say ‘Amen!’ to this one. (Amen!) I know this is really my night!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I will greatly encourage you this year. (Amen!)Alleluia! Amen and amen and Amen.
Thank You Daddy! The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said you will have something big to point to before the end of this year. (Amen!)
Something big and you will say ah God did this one for me this year! (Amen!) Okay Alleluia! Oh! Thank You my Lord!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I will bury your problems so deep they will never resurface. (Amen!)
Okay now the Peter and John they were the 2 going to church but Peter was the one who spoke that is why I say you should get the Holy Communion tape of yesterday because you will hear us talking about the Peter’s group..Peter said something: He said silver and fold have I not but I have something. “Things … You know that are more precious than money. “Many, many things more precious than money – a child for example. How much are you going to pay for a child? Good health for example? I knew a friend. He’s dead now. In far away Australia, when he died the money he had in Australia to talk of America, Switzerland and so on was 68 million dollars but do you know the only food he can eat is milk .“ drink milk. Me I had no money, no million dollars but give me chicken I will crush it! Give me Pounded yam .“ I will finish it! Anything you bring … anything you don’t want me to eat don’t put it on the table! Those of us who are not rich but can eat let me see your hands! Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)
Do you know some people are rich .“ they can’t sleep? Some of us can sleep standing! I think we should thank the Almighty God Let me hear you shout another Alleluia! (Alleluia!) He said, I don’t have silver, I don’t have gold but I can make the lame walk! I thank God that God had already given us a word of prophecy tonight that your hunger for things money cannot buy will be satisfied. (Amen!) . The power to heal, the power to raise the dead! The power to cast out demons .“ receive in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) He said but what I have I give. You know you can’t give what you don’t have and power flowed through him. There was a beautiful thing. “Heaven had made provision. It said thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over. The plan of God is not just to give you a full cup .“my cup runneth over! Anointing so mighty that it will run over! Healing virtue so mighty that it will run over. That’s what God will give unto you.
Let me say just one more word about this Peter fellow. The Bible says he was going to the temple in the hour of prayer. If you want your anointing to overflow you must learn to pray without ceasing! Pray without ceasing. One of the people so mightily used by God is Paul the Apostle and the Bible says in 1 Corinthian 14:18 Paul said I thank God that I pray in tongues more than ye all. That’s why the Bible says in Acts 19:11-12 God performed special miracles, special miracles by the hands of Paul so that from his body aprons and handkerchiefs were taken to the sick and they were healed and demons were cast out of them. He prayed in tongues more than all. He’s the one who said pray without ceasing and God performed special miracles by his hand. Let us learn to pray without ceasing. Let me begin to round up. You too can be heaven on the move. Like Peter that wherever you go, heaven goes. Whenever you arrive heaven arrives. How? James 4:8 says Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands. There are two things you are asked to do here. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.. Do you know the onus lies on you? That passage says until you draw near to God don’t expect Him to draw near you oh! You are the one to initiate. Draw near to God then He will draw near to you. You take your own little step and then He with His everlasting legs will take one step. One little step and He takes one giant step. But if you don’t move He will stay where He is. This year draw near God . Even if that little step is coming to the Holy Ghost Service draw near God! Then cleanse your hands and purity your hearts. I don’t have time to go to that .“ get the Holy Communion tape of the eve. It tells us; those of us who want to enjoy heaven on earth. “ clean hands, clean thoughts, clean lips. You get the details there. You want to be heaven on earth yourself? Draw near God, He will draw near you. Cleanse your hands, clean your thoughts, let your lips be clean!
In conclusion why was this man chosen for the first miracle in the life or through the Apostle Peter? Put it another way: what conditions must I satisfy so that I will be the first person to receive the first miracle in the year 2007? God looked into the heart of this man and saw a heaven-seeker. God saw it. Other people may not see it but God saw it. How do we know that he is a heaven-seeker? As soon as he was healed that was the first thing he did. …. Walking, leaping and praising God. He wasn’t praising Peter! He wasn’t praising John! Who was he praising? He was praising God!
Number two He headed straight for the temple. He didn’t go home! Years ago in Ibadan I was visiting. I think I was in Ibadan for about 3 days so every day before the evening service I said those who have problems they should come so I can pray for them. And a woman brought a child who had never walked and I laid hands on the child and.“ in the mighty name of Jesus child begin to walk! And the baby began to walk. “Began to run around the room when the mother grabbed the child, she ran out of the house and ran away. In the evening we were even looking around to see if she will testify. “She didn’t come to evening church! So she was a seeker of miracles not a seeker of God. This man, when he received his miracle he didn’t go home to tell those who had been carrying him for 40 years. Where did he go? Into the temple! God saw that because He knows the end from the beginning! When he got there after jumping and shouting and praising God, he held on to Peter and John, testifying this is the man who laid hands on me, this is how my miracle happened.
God saw a heaven seeker who will praise Him; who will run straight into the temple; who will be a testifier! God is looking for somebody in our midst tonight that he will make a living example of His Almightiness! God is looking for someone that He will turn into a wonder for the world but the fellow must be a heaven seeker, someone who will praise God; who will worship in His house; who will testify! Are you the one God is looking for? He knows. He knows you more than I do. There might even be some people here. They might even be coming for the very first time. They may be the ones God wants to start with. Maybe they have not yet surrendered their life to Jesus and they want to do so. The greatest miracle is the miracle of salvation. Once He saves your soul, every other thing will follow.
So if you are here and you are not yet born again and you want to surrender your life to Jesus , come now before we begin to pray. Come. I will count from 1 to 10. If you want to surrender your life to Jesus come! This year could be the best year you have ever spent so far! So begin to come now. I’ll begin to count. 1 .Blessed be Your Holy Name! I thank You for Your Word. I thank You for these people who have responded to Your calling. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) They have come Lord receive then in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Forgive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Wipe away all their sins with Your blood in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Save their souls and write their names in the Book of Life. (Amen!) Solve all their problems. (Amen!) And from now on when they call on You Father answer them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And let them serve you to the end. (Amen!) In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
One major prayer I want you to pray tonight. Are you ready to pray? Let’s stand on our feet. Let me first of all here you shout one big, big Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Lift your voice to the Almighty God and say Father, turn my life to heaven on earth. Only one prayer point! Father, turn my life to heaven on earth! Tell the Almighty God I want my life to become heaven on earth that wherever I go it will be heaven going there. Anywhere I arrive, heaven has arrived! Turn my life to heaven on earth. Talk to the Lord about that.
The Lord wants me to pray for 3 groups of people tonight. First are those who want promotion in their place of work. The Lord said I should ask them what do you want to do with the promotion. If you get promoted what exactly are you going to do for the kingdom of God with your promotion? So if you are in that category stand on your feet and tell God. “Answer that question. If you promote me Lord, this and this and this is what I will do Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty! If you promote me this is what I will do for Your kingdom. “ tell Him! Don’t forget He is a covenant-keeping God so you are making a covenant with Him now. He will keep His own. Remember you have to keep your own too. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
My Father and my God You have heard what Your children have said and I know that You are a covenant-keeping God. You are the one who asked me to pray for them and I believe that that means You have made up your minds to promote them so Father in advance accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) All these Your children who have made a covenant with You today, very, very soon promote them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Everything standing in the way of their promotion crush it in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Even as they leave this place let them begin to enjoy unusual favor in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Even if their cases have been considered before and they were considered unfit for promotion let there be a review in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Let there be divine intervention in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Let there be divine involvement in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) I want next month to be full of testimonies in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And when You have promoted them, the grace not to forget their covenant, the grace to do what they have promised to do give to them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You my Father, In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Praise the Lord! Alleluia! You may be seated.
The second group He wants me to pray for are business men, business women, contractors who are saying, enough is enough. We have suffered enough. We want our breakthrough now. The Lord asked me to ask you what you want to do with a breakthrough; what do you want to do for the kingdom if the breakthrough comes? If you are in that category stand on your feet and tell Him what you will do with the breakthrough. Tell Him what you will do with the prosperity. Go ahead! Tell Him! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) You are the God of breakthroughs. I am committing these Your children into Your hands. When you open a door no man can shut it. Open doors unto them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Doors of breakthroughs, doors of prosperity, doors of success! Open doors unto them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Like never before let them begin to succeed. (Amen!) rapidly (Amen!) persistently (Amen!) mightily (Amen!) let them begin to succeed in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And the grace to fulfill their own part of the contract, give to them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You my Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen Praise the Lord!
And the third group for tonight and that doesn’t mean that He forgets the others, the third group for tonight are students. He asked me to ask you, the wisdom you are asking for; the understanding you are asking for what do you want to do with it? What will you do in your colleges, in your institutions of higher learning for His kingdom? Go ahead answer the question to Him? Thank You Jesus! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Father, I commit these students into Your hands. You are the source of wisdom. Knowledge and understanding come from you. I commit these students into Your hands, directly from heaven give them wisdom. (Amen!) Wisdom superior to that of Solomon release unto them. (Amen!) Understanding that will surprise their lecturers, their tutors release unto them (Amen!) The kind of brilliance that the world will hear about release unto them. (Amen!) Don’t let them fail again! Father, don’t let them ever fail again! (Amen!) Let success become their theme song in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You Father! And when You have given them the wisdom, the grace to spend the wisdom, to use the wisdom for Your glory for the advancement of Your Kingdom; to win souls and to establish them; to turn their institutions of learning to a citadel where God and God alone will be glorified, give to them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You my Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen.
Now, on my own if you don’t belong to any of the three groups that I have already mentioned and you still want me to pray for you over something stand on your feet. Tell God what it is you want. I will join you in agreement and God will do it for you. So if there is anything you want that had not been mentioned, talk to God about it now.“ just in 2 minutes.

HEAVEN ON THE MOVE (2)
2nd of February, 2007
Well let somebody shout halleluiah! I have said it before and am saying it again that there is someone here tonight, who will dance throughout this year, if you are the one let me hear you shout halleluiah. I was sharing with the senior pastors, when we were praying before we came here, David said there is just a step between me and death and when you meditate on what he said, you will realize that if the javelin that king Saul threw at him has hit his mark, there will not have been king David.
How many javelins has the enemy threw at you since January one; The javelin that you can see is easy to dodge, but what about those you cannot see, those that were thrown at you while you were sleeping, those that were thrown at even while they were smiling while throwing the javelin at you, that is why those of us were at the Holy Communionservice yesterday, sang a song.
Emi na re oluwa …
We tend to thank God from each year, but we forget to thank Him for every month. Consider how people said happy New Year and they were no more. Go before the Almighty God brethren, praise Him, magnify His Holy name, give Him all glory, and give Him all honour, give Him all adoration. Bless His holy name. He is the one who kept you just one step ahead of the enemy.

Those of you who were at the Holy Communion services we learnt that Peter was outstanding because of this great love that he has for God.

Amen, Let somebody shout halleluiah.
Something interesting happen here tonight when the preacher who spoke before came and chooses his text, it is exactly the same text that I want to speak on, so I said, well my job is easier tonight. I will just come, we will pray, we will sing and dance and go home. Then he began to speak, that was something, in America when the sermon is very good, they say “what a word”. I think tonight I can say “what a word”,” what a word”! It is as if I am in a bible school, my hand start to move as fast as how it used to be when I was in the university.
I don’t know if you got what He said, what he said was so wonderful that am going to repeat some of them because, I know some of us, we were here but you were not taking note, you don’t know something that good is coming. He said every blessing of God has an address attached to it, did you hear that one? He said your divine location will determine your divine promotion, he said if you don’t have a base then there is no basis for a miracle, he said without an address, your problem cannot be addressed. I said what is going on here? I kept on writing. I won’t tell you everything I wrote after all you were here.
But then he moved to grace and I was hearing things I have never heard before, for example he said grace can turn ridicule to miracle, he said grace doesn’t always choose the qualified, but qualify the chosen. He said grace is an advocate, he gets the guilty discharged and acquitted, he said all faces look alike until grace begin to shine upon the face of someone. Therefore he says grace beautify. Sir, if I had the authority, I would have awarded you a PHD straight away. So if I see you tomorrow and I say Doctor Peter, you know what I am talking about. That was beautiful, that was beautiful. Glory be to God. Let’s Give God a big round of applause, that was beautiful, that was beautiful.
So we now go into John 5 v 1-9 and verse 14. After this, there were a feast of the Jews and Jesus went up into Jerusalem and there in Jerusalem a pool called in Hebrew tongue Bethesda having five porches. In this lay a great multitude of important folks, blind, halt , withered, waiting for the moving of the water, for an angel went down the pool for a season trouble the water, whosoever then first after the trouble of the water step in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. And a certain man was there which had infirmity thirty and eight years, when Jesus saw him lie and that it he had now been a long time in that case, he said unto him, will thou be made whole?
The impotent man said, “sir, I have no man to put me in the pool, but while I am coming, another steps down before me”. Jesus said unto him rise, take up thy bed and walk and immediately the man was made whole and took up his bed and walked and on the same day was a Sabbath, verse 14 afterwards, Jesus find him in the temple and said unto him, behold thou art made whole, sin no more least a worse thing come unto thee. After the first speaker, there is very little a pastor can now say after a doctor has spoken. Then maybe we add some little, little point to the big one he had already shared with us.
Number one, God can handle any case. There are no problems, physical or otherwise in heaven, no problems in heaven, therefore whenever heaven arrives in a particular place, problems vanished. I decree in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ that as heaven comes to your side, your problems will vanish in Jesus name. No problem in heaven, so when heaven is moving and it arrives somewhere, wherever it arrives at the problem in that location must vanished because according to Luke 1v 37 with God nothing shall be impossible. Tell your neighbor, my own will not be impossible for God.
Now in this place, that pool of Bethesda, the bible describe to us the kind of people that were there, first the impotent. To be impotent means to be unable to produce. It means to be barren, it means unable to produce. To be barren means to be unable to function when they say a man is impotent, we know what that means, it means if he marries, he is just wasting his time but in heaven there is no impotence, there is no bareness. There is no lack of fruitfulness. Jesus Christ said in John 15 v 5, He said “if you abide in me and my word abide in you, you will bring forth much fruit”, in verse 4 of John 15, He said “even though the branch on its own cannot produce much fruit, even though the branch may be important on its own, but the vine is fruitful. I decree tonight everything called impotence, everything called bareness shall be a stranger to you in the name of Jesus.
The moment heaven come in contact with you, the moment the branch come in contact with the vine, fruitfulness comes, thank God that the preacher who spoke said, if you are at the right place at the right time, then you can be sure your problem will get a solution. Heaven is moving, heaven is on the move, particularly in the Redeem Christian Church of God this year and I pray in all other churches too. Heaven is on the move and has it is moving on it is going to visit some people. I know it is going to visit me tonight and as He visits you, all the problems in your life will vanished. Some of you remember the testimony, we had a program at Tafa Balewa square, Holy Ghost service, I think we called it the battle of the gods or something. There was a man who has been impotent for years and has made up his mind to commit suicide and he travelled from the east to Lagos, if I may remember, he came to settle everything before he died, he heard about the program and he said since, I have nothing doing let me attend. Let me attend this one day before I die, and as the message was going on, nobody prayed for him, nobody laid hands on him but the sun of righteousness arose for him and touched him with His healing wings and suddenly that which had been dead came back to life. I decree to someone here today, everything good that the enemy had killed in your life, shall come back to life today in Jesus name.
The first groups of people were; the impotent and then he said the blind, we know what it means to be blind or at least we think we know. If you want to know how terrible it is to be blind, close your eye and try to work out of this auditorium on your own, don’t open your eye, close your eye and try and walk out of this auditorium, you have been coming all these years, so you know everywhere. Close your eye and when you open your eye again, you will thank God for an eye that is after you have fallen down several times of course. I pray in the Mighty name of Jesus, everyone who is blind today, God will open your eye.
To be blind means one is completely surrounded by darkness. Blind people don’t know what is yellow, what is blue, what is green. Their life is consisting of only one color and that color is black, but there is no darkness in heaven. God hates darkness, when you read Revelation 21 v 23- 25 the bible say in heaven there is no need for a sun, in fact He said there is no night there. I decree in the Mighty name of Jesus, every form of darkness in your life shall cease tonight in the name of Jesus. And so when heaven comes, darkness will disappear. Jesus Christ said I am the light of the world, John 9 v 3, in Genesis 1v 1-3 the first thing God said was let there be light and there was light. In the Mighty name of Jesus Christ there will be life in your life.
The Lord say there is someone here tonight, the Lord said I will reverse the victory of your adversary.
One of the testimonies that I heard when I was a younger Christian that gives me so much joy was the story of a young boy, who had no eye ball at all, it wasn’t that he was blind; he had no eye ball at all. He went to attend a crusade and he heard in his own ears, son I have prepared for you two eye ball, that is all he heard and of course he tried to open the eye but there was nothing to open but when he woke up the following morning, as he rob his face, he discovered that were eye balls were suppose to be, were it use to be very cold was warm, so he was surprise but there was no sight yet.
Every day he will wake up, touched were eyeball was to be. He began to notice a small swelling, every day the swelling became bigger and bigger. It took three months, but after three months as he was waking up, he heard the voice of the Lord saying you can now open your eye and he opened his eye. I don’t know who God is talking to today; by the time you return next month you will share a mighty testimony.
He spoke about the important, the blind and the halt. The halt if you put it in a simple language, it means the hindered. You know when you are going and someone says halt! It means stop there, stop making progress, stop moving, the halt are those who cannot move freely, those who cannot make progress. And God hate any form of lack of progress.
When heaven arrives, progress arrives.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, I will back you up so much that whatever you refuse, I will refuse.
Father I say amen to that one. And straight away I reject anything called sickness, I reject pain, I reject failure, I reject sorrow. Oh! Thank you Father, let somebody shout halleluiah.
Isaiah 40v28-31 tells us that the Lord loves progress. He wants you to go from walking to running and to flying. When heaven arrives, hindering forces disappear. Isaiah 41 v 10-13 the Almighty God says if I decide to help you, those who are hurting your progress, those who are incense against you, would be as nothing. He said you will seek for them, you will not find them; you will not even find them. I want to prophesy to someone tonight in the name that is above every other name. All those who have been hindering your progress, from tonight you will seek them and you will not find them.
I want to prophesy further. All of you who have been walking, you will now begin to run, those of you who are already running, you will begin to fly. Am sure you remember the story; when I was in one of the university, when one officer said to another, as long as I am the Head of department, as long as I am the boss, you will not be promoted and the brother brought the case to us.
And we said it is written that if you shall believe and doubt not you shall say to this mountain be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea and it shall obey you. So if this boss wants to constitute himself to a mountain, let’s move him and the Lord said amen. The boss was transferred and the fellow he said he would not be promoted was promoted to take his position and after that fellow was settled in his new position, they brought Oga back but now they are equal. Every mountain in your life, I decree in the Mighty name of Jesus, mountain be thou removed, be thou cast into the sea, so shall it be in the name of Jesus.
Then He talked about the withered, it means its use to be fat but after sometime it became thinner and thinner. The withered means they use to be good but now they are bad. They use to be rich but now they are now poor, they use to be healthy but now they are sick, they use to be the head but now they are tail, the withered means ex -this, ex -that, as far as heaven is concerned, there is no room for withering.
The plan of God for every of child of heaven, is that they will be head and not tail, above only, not above today, down tomorrow. Psalm 92 v12-14 says the righteous shall flourish, flourish not withered, flourish like the palm tree. He said he that be planted in the house of the Lord, shall flourish like cedar in Lebanon, He said even in old age, they will still be fat and fruitful, not withered, that is why, whenever the heaven arrives, the withered they use to blossom again.
A classical example is in Mark 5 v 25- 34, it tells us the story of the woman with the issue of blood. once upon a time She was healthy, she was rich but the problem came, a little drop at a time, she became withered. Physically she withered, financially she withered, emotionally she withered joy wise she withered until the heave was passing by and somehow she made contact with heaven and she blossom again.
Let me start with those of you that are withered physically in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ you will begin to blossom again. Let me start those of you who are withered in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ you will begin to blossom again. Those of you who are withered financially, you use to be rich, you use to spend without calculation, now when you wake up, you are afraid that there are coming from the bank to come and close down your house. Because heave is passing by, those that you are owing will soon be owing you and those who are withered spiritually, those who use to hear from God, those who use to prophesy, those who use to lay hands on the sick and they get healed, those who use to dream powerful dream but now they has become history. I decree in the name of Jesus, there will be full restoration tonight.
Years ago we use to hold what we call Christ the Redeemer Congress, we held one in Ibadan Grammar school and then the last day came and we use to keep the colleges we use very clean so that they can allow us in the future. So we normally will tidy up before the final talk.
And there was this girl, who was working more than everybody else, sweeping, cleaning and I was wondering what is going on here. And then testimony time came and she came forward to testify, she said when she was young, when she was a child something happen and her right hand withered, throughout her days in the secondary school, every student will be working but because her hand were withered, no manual labor for her and she came to the congress and the Almighty God touched her and her withered hand blossom and the first time in her life she had the opportunity to do manual labor so she want to do more than everyone else. I decree tonight everything you had wanted to do for God which your withered hand did not allow; you will begin to do them now in Jesus name.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I have removed both the jailer and the prison doors and you are free to work out now.
Thank you Father and the next group of people are the infirm, the impotent, the blind, the halt, the withered and the infirmed. When we talk about the infirmed we are talking about the weak, the shaky the unstable. When you see somebody who is very , very old, when they are walking their legs are very shaky, you say papa has become infirmed but there is no infirmity in heaven, as far as God is concerned, no matter how old you are, He wants you to be strong. He says He will renew your age like the eagles.
Ones in a while you go and see the doctor and the doctor says, there is nothing we can do to this case, it is the sickness of old age. In the Mighty name of Jesus to our old men and women, your age shall be renew, like the eagle and the younger ones you better say amen with them, because one day you are going to be old too, when heaven is around, strength is supplied. Philippians 4 v 13, Paul said I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me. Strength comes. In Luke 13 v 10-13, the bible tells us the story of a woman who has had an infirmity for thirty eight years.
The bible said she couldn’t lift up herself no matter how she tried, until heaven came by and as heaven came by, the infirmities disappear and the one who couldn’t lift up became straight again.
I have shared it with you before the testimony of how I became a believer in divine healing. When I became Christian and people are talking about divine healing don’t want to hear, I always say this people are looking for someone they want to kill, when they got up and say I want to thank God that for fifteen years I have not taken a tablet, I say who followed you to your bedroom.
I said you have shown me the way to heaven now but don’t send me there too quickly, until one day, there was an old man in the church then, about eighty something years old, he was walking with a walking stick, bent double and one Sunday early in the morning, and I saw papa walking without a walking stick, he was walking straight. I said ha! Is this papa? So when they said, he was going to share his testimony in the evening, I was the first one to get to church; I wanted to hear from him. This is not a pastor, this is an ordinary member like myself, I want to see what happened to this old man. The old man said I went to my home town and as it was my custom; in the morning I began to go from house to house preaching about Jesus Christ at a stage, I heard the devil say old man, stop deceiving people. Go home. If your Jesus is as powerful as you said He is, why has He not healed you? I was listening; I want to know what happen next. The old man said an holy anger arose within him and said “devil you are laughing at my God”, he said “he took his walking stick, broke it into two, threw it away, straighten up and say if I am going to die today, I am not going to allow Satan to laugh at my God”.
He said “while he was young, he had contacted a particular venereal disease. Whenever he bends, he is okay but whenever he tries to straighten up fire begins to burn inside, he said that was his problem. He said he stood up that day and he began to walk home and the fire begins to burn. I said this man is telling the truth because all those who have been testifying before will say I have headache and I say headache go in the name of Jesus and it went.
I tried it at home, it didn’t work that way, and instead of going it becomes bigger. So when this man says the fire becomes bigger, he said he continue his way home and he said he began to feel dizzy and he said he uttered a prayer to God, Almighty God if I am going to die, please let me reach home. Please just let me get home before I die. I say this man is telling the truth, he went on, he said as he stepped on the threshold, the pain disappear completely. I said thank you Jesus. I decree tonight, every infirmities in your system before you step into your house, it would disappear in Jesus name.
When heaven arrives infirmity goes so at this pool of Bethesda, they were the important, the blind, the halt, the infirmed and the Lord has enough power to deal with all of them, but He helped just one, He helped just one.
The Lord said there is someone here; He said the hand that has been hammering your head has been cut off.
The Lord said there is someone here, He said you are about to take a crucial exam and you are nervous, the Lord ask me to tell you, that relax I will help you. Halleluiah!
When heaven is passing by, it could be for the benefit of one individual, the benefit of one individual. There was multitude there, that what the bible calls it usually when the bible says there are multitude, it means they are difficult to count and yet even though heaven have enough power to take care of all of them, He attended to only one, just one.
That is why you see me from time to time saying there is somebody here, that is why I pity some people who come to a meeting like this and you want to play the big man and big woman. There is no big man on the sick bed. Sickness does not recognize how much money you have in the bank. Headache is headache whether you are a millionaire or a hundrednaire, Headache is headache period. If you have six PhD and you see somebody who has not passed primary six, stomached is stomached pain. When it comes to a miracle, I will be like a child first get my miracle, after I have got my miracle then if you want to laugh at me you can laugh, I know what I want. There is somebody here heaven is going to pay you attention. Who is that fellow? You better let me hear you shout halleluiah! Luke 4v 25-27 tells us God select just one widow, just one leper in Matthew. 8 v 1-3there was a crowd following Jesus, heaven was passing by.
A crowd surrounded Him. Only one leper got his healing. In 1king17 v 8 -16 one widow, only one widow got a financial breakthrough. In Mark 5 v 25-34 there was a multitude thronging Jesus, heaven was passing by a multitude was there, it is only a desperate woman that pushed her way through for deliverance. in 1Samuel1v 9 -18 many people were at Shiloh only one desperate woman who got her prayer answered prayed tonight that if God is going to perform a miracle for one fellow, two fellows, three fellows, it will be me, my wife and one fellow. Who is going to be the third fellow? Let me hear you shout amen. Job1v 13-19, as tragedy upon tragedy upon tragedy befall job. There is always someone spared to come and tell the story. These people came and they killed everybody but one escaped, when fire fell from heaven i escaped, oh there was one strange wind the house fell i escaped .There is somebody here today no matter how tragedy occur you will be the one to escape. We were still in the old auditorium, crowd came as usual and suddenly God said to me that there is somebody in the crowd, the enemy has planned for you to die today, but because you came today you shall live. Everybody said amen.
They didn’t know maybe some witches are meeting somewhere, they taught this is one of those prophesy that will be difficult to prove. How are we going to know whether God spoke to this man or not? But there was a woman in the crowd, a rich woman. Some people owed her a lot of money, so they decided the best way not to pay the money is to kill the woman, so they’ve been waiting for her. On her way home they grabbed her and bundle her into the booth of a car, out her into the booth and shut the booth and they were driving her out of Nigeria to go and dump her body outside .And they got money ready that any police checking point. And they got to the first police checkpoint and they have already stretched out money , the officer there say no, I want to see what is in your booth.
They say ah ah! There is nothing there officer, officer said no, then they increased the money,
The officer said no.
You know when God is on your side, when the great deliverer is on your side, when heaven is on your side, He will overturn the plan of the enemy.
The officer said come out, I want to see what is in your booth, when they saw the way things was going, they came out of the car and fled and the officer forced the booth opened and they found the woman there bound hand and foot, mouth and then they released her.
There may be someone here tonight that the enemy has concluded a plan to destroy you; in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ the enemy shall be disappointed.
God decided to help an individual in a multitude, why? Because He is sovereign,
Psalm 115 v 3, He said our God is in the heaven, He does as He pleases and you can’t query Him, you can’t query Him in Romans 9 v15 -16. He said i would have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and have compassion on whom I will have compassion. It is not of him that Wills, nor of him that runs but of God that shows mercy.
You know one thing I thank God for, is that He has decided to show mercy to me, I don’t know about you but He has been merciful unto me and because He has chosen to be merciful to me, I would be forever grateful to Him, you can query Him if you like, me I have query for Him, all I am saying is if he want to show mercy for one fellow, God, God Let it be me, if you want to be merciful to just one fellow, please let it be me. How many of you want the mercy of God tonight? let me hear you shout halleluiah. Thank you Father. I think He wants to merciful tonight.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said you will hear from me soon.
He said there is a woman, He said the agonizing menstrual pain you have been having for years is over from now on.
The Lord said there is some one here, I want to say amen first. He said I am already putting finishing touches to your case; you won’t have to wait much longer, halleluiah.
Thank you my Lord!
Any way the Lord now said to the man, will you be made whole? Very strange things that happen when your time comes; You see because if you study God very well, you will notice that after Genesis 3, He didn’t volunteer help to anyone. What happen in Genesis 3 v 9-12? When God said Adam why have you done this? Adam said the woman you gave me, I didn’t ask you, I was doing fine, did I tell you I was lonely, God said “I see okay from now on if you don’t ask you don’t get. James 4 v 2 He says you have not because you asked not. But here the Almighty God went to the man and said will you be made whole.
Do I have your permission to heal you? It means when God wants to favor you, even things you didn’t ask for He will do it. Things you didn’t need He will offer it. In Isaiah 43 v 13 He said I would work who will hinder, He said I have just decide I would do something, so who is going to hinder? Oh! I rejoice with you that your time for favor has come. I rejoice with you because I heard Him say there is somebody who will hear from me soon. You know what that means? He is likely to ask you a question very soon; can I give you a miracle, may I heal you please? May I give you a breakthrough? May I expand your coast? Oh! We give God the glory. I mean some of you have heard the story of the origin of Holy Ghost Service. Something that is bringing all of us together.
I was in London preparing the Sunday school booklet, suddenly I heard God said” son, what do you want for you birthday”? I wasn’t thinking of birthday up to that time, I have never really celebrated a birthday.
A birthday I celebrated when I was in the world was with girlfriend and I use to celebrate many birthdays in the year, the number of girlfriend determines the number of birthday. Then I got born again. I have forgotten about birthday and suddenly I heard Him say” son, what do you want for your birthday”?
Somebody will hear from God soon, I say somebody will hear from God soon. look at the result of that question, look at those of us that is here, look at those who come to the congress, think of all the people who have be saved, think of the sign, think of the wonders. Because God asked a question, God is going to come to somebody tonight and He is going to ask you a question; what can I do for you? When He asked you, am sure you will give a correct answer in Jesus name. (Amen). Thank you Father, Halleluiah amen, amen, amen, amen, amen, amen.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I will give you another dose of my mercy.
So this man then said I have no helper, I have no helper. He knows, the Almighty God knows, Psalm 139 v 1-6made it clear that there is nothing hidden from Him, even your taught are not hidden from Him. He knows and not only that the one who is asking can help you, is He the helper of the helpless. That is good news when heaven comes help comes. That is why I am excited, no problems in heaven. Thank you Father, forgive me if I keep saying amen, amen, amen, amen.
The Lord said there is somebody here your sun will soon come out of the cloud.
In 2 king4 v 1-7 bible tells us the story of a widow. Poor widow hear in debt, no helper and the creditor came and said we will sell your sons, but that day she made contact with heaven and the helper of helpless helped. In2 kings 7 v 3-9 the bible tells us about four lepers, destitute lepers, dying of hunger. Nobody can be more helpless like a leper, hated by the community, hungry, poor, sick but the helper of the helpless helped them. They became someone who could even begin to put money into a fixed account.
In Mark 5 v 1-20, the mad man of Gadarenes is beyond human help, but the helper of the helpless helped him. I have good news for those of you who feel helpless tonight, you will soon testify.
And so when Jesus arrived, it means heaven arrived, when He arrived where that man was, it means Heaven have arrived there and my good news for us tonight is that heaven has arrived, am trying to swallow some of these things but…
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I have a great surprise for you.
Oh! My God, Daddy says there is someone here tonight, your testimony will be so sweet that people will say tell us again and again.
Brethren Daddy says you have got my attention now, tell me what you want, tell me what you want, you’ve got my attention now, you’ve got my attention now… thank you Jesus let’s begin to bring our prayer to close, thank you father, blessed be your holy Lord. In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
If you believe that He had heard you, let me hear you shout halleluiah, shake hand with one or two people and say thank God I came tonight, thank God I came tonight, thank God I came tonight. Then you may be seated.
Thank you Lord, thank you Lord, thank you Lord. Halleluiah thank you Lord, so heaven is here now and there is no need to wait for angel anymore, that man was waiting for angel but the creator of angels was standing by him, the actual burden bearer was standing by him.
He is standing by you tonight, He will carry away your burdens and then the man was healed, He said stand up , take your bed, go home and he got up, took his bed and said “is it me”? it was like a dream, your miracle will come like a dream and the man did something very good. He didn’t go home; he went into the house of God. He has not been to church For thirty eight years he didn’t go to the house of God because he didn’t know when the angel will come and disturb the water. Soon after he got his miracle, he went to thank God; he went straight to the house of God.
Am sure he was there singing and dancing, he was there singing and rejoicing. Throughout this year in the Mighty name of Jesus you will dance and then in the house of God, he got a second visitation, the Lord went to him again. Second time in one day because He is Jehova Elshadai, the God who is more than enough, the one ever so generous. You know I told you when I was studying Psalm 23 v 5 when he said thou anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over and I said Daddy when the cup was full, why didn’t you stop? He said He just want to show the boy, there is plenty more where this came from. There is somebody here today, before the end of this year, as the Lord lives you will say to God Father this is too much. This blessing is too much, so shall it be in Jesus name.
Two visitations in one day, the Almighty God is able to give you more than one miracle per one day. If He wants to show you favor, He will do it in such a way that you will say this can only be God.
I have told us the story of my first visit to Canada for the conference of the world applied Mathematician, we arrived at night. It was very cold and there was a long queue, where we want to register and a woman at the registration table got up prepare tea, with sandwiches, walked all the way to where I was standing and gave it to me. I have never been to Canada before I didn’t know her, but God knew I was there, He told her prepare tea and not tea alone prepare sandwich too for me. Then she asked what my name is? Where did I come from? I told her, and then she went away and everybody was looking at me as I was eating and enjoying. I didn’t even invite them, just as I was finishing my registration brought everything while I was still on that line and arrange for somebody who will take me to the hostel where I would spend the night, Before this year runs out in that name that is above every other name you will have similar testimony. Let me conclude because of time.
The Lord says that there is someone here tonight, He said your first fruit sacrifices has open new door for you.
Thank you Lord, thank you Lord.
The lord said there is somebody here tonight, He said the first phase of your life ends tonight and the second more glorious one begins now.
Thank you, thank you father, thank you Father.
Alright this is one of those days that I wished I were not the preacher. Okay lets conclude, when heaven is passing by reach out to touch Him you see because this passage says after he finished with that man, He moved on. What were the others doing? Because what He did, He didn’t do in secret. They saw this man rising carrying his bed and healed and they sat down looking, maybe with the mouth open in wonder.
Isaiah 55 v 6 says seek the Lord while He may be found; call Him while He is near. I beg you don’t waste this New Year. Seek God as you have never seek Him before. He is passing by. Seek Him, seek Him by forceMatthew11 v 12 he says the kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force. Seek God as you have not sought Him before.
This year pray like you have never prayed before, don’t be gentle man this year, don’t be a lady this year, be a warrior. A year like this comes only in a life time. This is the kind of year they called a boundary line year, it is a very peculiar this is the time to seek the Lord. This is the time to pray time too fast, time to give time to do everything God says you should do.
There is a story we heard when we were young. The hunter was going to hunt and as usual he has to check whether everything will be well or not. And he took a kola nut and broke it into four pieces. He threw it to the ground and now according to custom, if all is going to be well; two of the kola nut will face down, two will face up. But when he threw the thing, three were face down and one faced up, that means trouble. So picked it up and threw it again; three down and one up, when he threw it the fourth time; all the four faced down. So he said alright, So with his hand, took each kola nut and faced them up and said to the kola nut, if you don’t tell me good news, I will say god news to myself. Heaven is passing by, if it didn’t stop by, grab Him.
The woman with the issue of blood did not wait for Jesus to come to her house, she went after Him. This year seek God, seek Him by force, seek Him with everything in you, seek Him like you never sought Him before, seek Him don’t be lukewarm this year, don’t be lazy this year if your wife is slow, go ahead. If your husband is slow go ahead. Seek Him while He may be found, call Him while He is near you.
If you are here you have not given your life to Christ come now, he will save your soul, He will be merciful unto you. the rest of us am not going to ask you to wait, the power of God is here so mightily tonight, I have never felt it like this before, go ahead , stand on your feet and began to pray, talk to God, pray, pray like you have never before, pour your heart to Him. Talk to Him, talk to the Almighty God.
Those of you who wants to give your life to Jesus, come if you want to come, if you don’t want to come, stay there, it is your choice, if you want to come, come I will count from one to ten, if you like get here before I say ten, if you like stay where you are. it is your choice but this is time for salvation. The Almighty God wants to be merciful unto you this year that is why He brought you here. So come quickly, one, two, three, four, brethren you should be praying now, those of you who are in the congregation.

Thank you father in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed, amen let somebody, shout halleluiah.
Shake hand with one or two people and say good evening, God bless you, God will surprise you tonight. The theme of our gathering as you know is “Heaven On The Move”, I want to talk to you for as long as the Holy Spirit will allow me from Matthew 8 v 1-3 and then , I might refer to the same story which is repeated inMark 1 v 40- 44 Let’s read Matthew 8 v 1- 3 when He was come down from the mountain, great multitude followed Him, what kind of multitude followed Him?, great multitude and behold there came a leper, worship Him and said Lord if thou will, thou can make me clean, and Jesus put forth His hand, saying I would be thou clean and immediately his leprosy was cleanse.
Now if you read the same story in Mark 1 v 40 – 44 you will see one or two other things that Matthew did not talk about, for example in verse 41, Mark said and Jesus moved with compassion put forth His hand and said I will be thou clean, then if you now look at verse 45 in Mark chapter 1 there, he talked about what the leper did afterward, he said but he went about and began to publish it much to blaze it abroad much about the matter so much that Jesus could not openly enter into the city but was without in desert places and they came to Him from every quarter. The testimony of this man was so powerful and he was so noisy about it, that he drove Jesus away from the town.
He was a testifier that might have been one of the reasons why God must have done what he did for him.
There are some people here tonight, who have already made up their mind; if Jesus performs my miracle for me, the world will hear. Who is that fellow?
A surprise is coming your way. We have already share in December, like my son Bamidele said, heaven is a place, heaven is also a person, and that person is Jesus Christ. So whenever Jesus is moving. It means that heaven is on the move, so on this occasion; Jesus was coming down from the mountain and a great multitude followed Him. It is interesting here that its only one fellow get a miracle. Only a leper, the leper came, fell at His feet, worship Him. He said something; he said the others may not know you. he said I know you, I know how powerful you are, I know medically speaking leprosy is incurable.
I know humanly speaking my case is impossible, but there are no impossibility with you, I know if you want , you can make me completely clean. Tell your neighbor, my own will not be impossible for God tonight the bible say he touched God, he moved God, because the bible say Jesus was moved with compassion, and then Jesus answered Him and said I will and then He touched him and said be thou be clean and immediately.
Let somebody say immediately, you better say it loud and clear, because that is how your miracle will come tonight.
His leprosy was clean and there are so many things about this story but time will not permit us to take everyone of them, one of them that we will not be able to discuss in detail is that it is God who made a law, that says anyone who touches a leper himself will become unclean, but on this occasion the one who made the law broke the law, so that He can give a miracle to somebody. Every law that God has to break tonight in order to give you your miracle shall be broken(amen), if He has to walk on water, even though He said if you walk on water you are suppose to sink. If He has to bring water out of the rock, whatever laws He has to suspend in order to get to you tonight and give you your miracle, He will suspend such laws.
Let me then go quickly because of time, let me go one or two points. A multitude follow Jesus, it will interest you to know that some of them came to see, now there is a difference between being a spectator and coming to see Jesus.
It is good to see, it all depends on what you want to see. Zacheus wants to see Jesus as a result, salvation entered into His house, David said open my eye oh! Lord that I might behold wonder in your word. Somebody will see wonder tonight. It depends on what you have come to see. Some people will gather here, some people heard that we have new equipment, so they came to see the new equipment. Some people have come to see the new equipment. Some people have come earlier because they want to see the general overseer, but some people have come to see Jesus tonight, how many of you have come to see Jesus Christ? you will see Him in Jesus name.
Thank you Father, I know it is going to be a wonderful night.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight He said your problem started like a sharp pain and then the pain began to spread. The Lord asked me to tell you everything is over now.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is a man here that you have been feeling progressively impotent, the Lord asked me to tell you, He has taken care of that now. I want to preach but if I want to talk and He want to talk, I think we better listen to Him.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I should tell you, the bleeding is over, so you should check those of you bleeding, the bleeding has stopped now. Whether internal bleeding or eternal bleeding, Daddy simply says it is over.
So some people came to see, some people came to hear. It is good to come to hear, particularly to hear Jesus and to hear His word, because Romans 10 v17, he said faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God and in Revelation 2 v 7 the bible did say he who has hear to hear, let him hear what the spirit is saying to the church, and Exodus 15 v 26 says, if you hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all that He command you, He said I will not allow any sickness, any disease that I put on the Egyptian to come upon you, he said because I am the Lord that health thee. In order word, your health depends on what you hear.
If you are hearing the word of God and in the word of God, there is life because the bible says he sent His word and heal them, if you are hearing the word of God and you are doing them, then you will leave a healthy life.
In Deuteronomy 28 v 1- 2 He says again if you will hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all that I commands you, He said blessing will follow you and over take you, in order words you blessing, you prosperity depends on what you hear, in fact David said that the entrance of your words gives life, so if you want to live the rest of your life in light, you must hear the word of God.
Thank you Lord, the Lord say there is someone here tonight; He said I should tell you, your restoration will be total.
Thank you Father!
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He says your tears of sorrow will soon become tears of joy (amen).
How many of you want His will to be done? Okay His will, will be done because He is speaking so much for example;
He says there is someone here tonight with a hole in the heart, if you lay your hand on your heart; it is beating so mighty it can even push your heart away because of the hole, He asked me to tell you, you can check now, the hole has been sealed.
Thank you Lord, Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said, I say unto you, lift up your head because help is on the way.
Okay some came to see, it is good provided you came to see Jesus, some came to hear, it is crucial that you hear, to hear the word of God and then some came to touch Him and when you touch heaven, something spectacular is bound to happen.
Am sure you know the story of the woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5 v 25- 34. This is a woman who has suffer a lot of things from many physicians and rather than getting better grew worse and she came and pressed behind and touch that helm of His garment, as soon as she touched that helm, instant healing, immediately she was made whole, somebody will touch God tonight.
There are various ways of touching God, you can touch Him by faith, when you demonstrate an uncommon faith, you touch God. Take the case of Matthew 8 v 5-13 it is the story about the centurion, his servant is sick, I want healing from Him; Jesus says I will come and heal him.
He said no, don’t bother yourself, I know you. Just like you are under the authority of your father, I am under the Authority of Cesar. And because am under the authority of Cesar,, when I say to this soldier go, he goes, when I say to that one come, he comes, in the same manner, you speak a word tell the sickness to go. I know the sickness will obey you. And his faith touched Jesus and Jesus said what kind of faith? Is this? There is somebody here today, God will increase your faith and then of course you can touch Him by giving.
You know the story of the window, who gave all she had; she touched Jesus, because Jesus commented on her giving. What she gave was small but it was all she had. Solomon gave a thousand burnt offerings and he touched God so much so that God says I will pay this boy a visit, you can touch him by physically you could touch Him by faith or touch Him by giving or touch Him by worship and so on and so forth by whatever method. I pray for you tonight you will make contact with heaven.
The Lord said there is somebody here who has a stubborn respiratory problem, the Lord asked me to tell you. He has given you a new pair of lungs.
The Lord said there is a woman There, He said your abdomen is hard as a stone, that is why have not become pregnant, He said you can check now, it has become soft.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said one by one your adversaries will disappear. You can be sure that is me.
If you are the one let me hear you shout halleluiah.
Okay so some came to see, some came to hear, some came to touch, but then some came to be touched. This leper came to be touched.
He risked his life to come, because a leper is not suppose to come into the congregation of people, if a leper was coming he was to suppose ring a bell unclean, unclean, so that people can flee away, but this time, this leper says one or two things will happen either he will touch me and made me whole or if He refuse to help me they will stone me to death, one of the two will happen. But thank God he got a good response.
Today you will get a good response in Jesus name. He came to be touched and he was touched by God. But he said something, he said thou can make me clean. He made it clear to God what he believed about Him, he said there is no inability with heaven, that statement is what really touched God
You see in Psalm 62 v 11 the bible says God has spoken once, twice have I heard this that power belongs to God, what belong to God? Power belongs to God, say power as if you know what power is, power belongs to God.Luke 1 v 37, thank you Lord!
The Lord says there is someone here tonight said you have been losing weight rapidly and doctors have not been able to find the reason , the Lord ask me to tell you, you are okay now.
Daddy says I should tell somebody. The swelling is gone; you can check where that suspicious swell it is gone.
Okay so in Luke 1 v 37 The bible says with God nothing shall be impossible in Jeremiah 32 v 27, He said behold I am the God of all flesh is there anything too hard for me? He left the question for you to answer. Is there anything too hard for Him? If you believe your own is not too hard let me hear you shout halleluiah.
Jeremiah 32 v 27 God said I am the God of all flesh, there is nothing too hard for Him, so your own will not be too hard for God. You see the God we serve, is an unlimited God. He is unlimited by time; because from everlasting to everlasting He is God. He is unlimited by age; His name is I am. Every day He is.
He is unlimited by death, He said I live forever, He is unlimited by resources, the bible says the earth is the Lord and the fullness thereof, He said silver is mine, gold is mine, He said the cattle upon the thousand hills are mine and if He wants, He can turn a fish into a bank, if He wants to He can bring water out of the rock, He even said He can bring children out of stones. So anything He wants to d, He can do it that is why I know He will do your own tonight.
The Lord said there is someone here today; He said the attempt of the enemy to reverse your testimony has been aborted.
He said there is someone here, He says constantly you have been suffering this intense pain in the chest, He said it is gone now and gone forever.
He said there is someone here tonight the enemy said we will shift the attack to your children, the Lord says I will disappoint them.
So the leper said, I know what you can do, so what am not too sure about is, are you willing to do it? Are you willing to solve my problem?
I know you have the ability to do so and in that statement, we can see a man whose faith is bit on the shaky side, I know you can do it, but am not sure you will do it?
It is like the story of a man in Mark 9 v 14-27 When Jesus said do you believe I can do this, he said Lord I believe, help my thou my unbelief, You know there some of us that when we first became Christian, our faith in the Lord was very strong like little babies and then as we continue in the journey, we began to fight one battle after the other, the faith began to shake a little.
I have good news for you, it doesn’t matter the level of your faith, the Lord will help you tonight. I shared with you when I first of all believe in divine healing, I started practicing with my children, if they say they have headache, I will make sure aspirin is near and then I will first of all pray for them, Lord heal this child in Jesus name and deep down within me if the headache is not gone in five minutes, I will reach for the aspirin
But God saw me. He knew I want to believe Him seriously and I don’t want to believe in medicine, I wanted to believe God, but I was trained as a scientist, God heal your child but aspirin is near and God each time met me at my level. Within five minutes, whether the child if fully asleep or he has gone out playing ball.
Thank God, this thing is working, so I extend it to my friends, those who will not report me if I fail. Thank God today all over the world, I just say what He has said and the miracles will happen. If God tells me now , that He about to remove the entire auditorium and out a new one, believe me honestly I will not doubt it for a second, that is why in know without any doubt that this night somebody will never forget.
He will meet you at the level of your faith in Jesus name.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here the X-ray of your bone is crack not broken but crack, He ask me to tell you He has taken care of that.
Oh thank you Jesus! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said is has been a long time of sorrow, He ask me to tell you, before the sun rises tomorrow, your son of joy will arrive and the Jesus said to the leper.
He said I will be clean, not I may, not that I will think about it. He said I have decided, I have made up my mind and when God said He has decided who can change His decision. Believe me honestly; God has decided concerning the affairs of somebody tonight, you are going to go home with joy. So we see this leper came to see Jesus and he saw Him.
He came to see Jesus and Jesus saw him. You know when we talk about seeing somebody, seeing, could mean I am looking at you like this. Seeing could mean attend to, so if you got home and somebody asked you, did you see the general overseer?
The fellow is not asking if you see the figure of the general overseer, he is asking, did the general overseer attend to you. He came to see Jesus and Jesus saw him. Jesus will see you today, I said He will see you today,
He came to hear what Jesus has to say and he heard good news. He came to hear what will be your answer to His question, what I have said oh Lord and he heard good news, I will be thou clean. In the name that is above every other name, I have good news for someone where today based on the word of God it shall be well with.
That is Isaiah 3 v 10 says; say it to the righteous it shall be well with him, based on the word of God this is not God said now, it is based on the word of God that is forever settle, according to Psalm 30 v 5 that says weeping may endure for a night, joy come in the morning, I can confidently say to someone here tonight, the morning of your joy is here. Based on the word of God I can say to someone here tonight, no weapon fashion against you shall prosper, he came to hear and he heard, and what he heard was good news. You will go home with Good news tonight.
The Lord said there is a lady here, He said I should tell you just incase you were not here last month; I should tell you the testimony of someone that came last month.
You remember the testimony of a woman who had a problem with her intestine and went to see the doctor in the U .K, I think in some 23yrs ago and the doctors operated on her and from that time till now, the only food she could eat was baby food, but she came to one of the meeting like this and God said I am giving somebody a new intestine and from that day on, she began to eat, pounded yam and rice. so the Lord asked me to share that testimony with somebody to whom the next word is coming.
He said there is a woman here tonight; God said I am giving you two new fallopian tubes, halleluiah, thank you father.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said your cry to me for mercy has been heard.
So he came to touch Jesus and Jesus touched him. He came to touch Jesus, he touched Jesus by his faith, by his statement and in return, because he came also to be touched by Jesus, Jesus touched him physically by healing him, and God has various ways by which He could heal.
He could repair what is already spoilt, He could supply spare parts. If He feels that this one is too bad now why waste repairing, let us give this fellow a brand new one and am sure you have heard dozen of testimonies about creative miracles.
You have seen people who received a new heart new eyes people who have grown taller while the sermon was on, so you know that He can do it. What He has done before, He will do it again, I say He will do it again tonight. So Jesus touched him physically by healing him and touched him materially because a leper without anybody telling you is sentence to a life of poverty, nobody is going to employ him and if he is trading, nobody is going to buy from him because whatever a leper touched in those days was considered unclean but because he was cleanse, he was not only heal physically, he was healed materially.
I want to decree in that name that is above every other name into the life of those of you who are here tonight; very soon poverty will become a stranger to you.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, I will give you the grace to be generous so that very soon you will live your peers far behind.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said by the time am finished with you; there will not be a single reproach in your life. I think this is my own section of this.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I will give you a special encounter with me that will set you up for life.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I will slam the door against the invaders.
So the Lord touched physically by healing him, he touched him materially because now he can begin to prosper and touched him spiritually because a leper is regarded a curse man and the Almighty God says to every one of us tonight. If only you would take Gods word seriously as it is written in Malachi 3 v 8 -11, if you will stop robbing God of His tithe and His offering every curse in your life shall be changed to a blessing. Jesus said I will and I believe He is saying to Adeboye tonight I will, I will what?, I will help you, I will heal you, I will deliver you, the world has sentence you to a life of loneness, a life of poverty, a life of sorrow but I will change everything. Oh so I don’t even know tonight whether we are preaching or prophesying. I think both of them are good, halleluiah.
The Lord said there is someone tonight , He said you will soon fill with joy, you will think you are having a long dream, in other words it will be as if when am I going to wake up and God will say you are not sleeping.
Oh thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, by the time I say it you will know it is meant for me.
The lord said if you will seek me with all your heart, I will take you to the very top.
The Lord said there is somebody here tonight; He said your enemies will realize that they have rejoiced over you too soon. In other words He is going to turn their rejoicing to sorrow.
I think I will stop preaching, so that He can do what else, he wants me to do.
So He said I will be clean, be clean does not just mean to be healed, it also mean be forgiven now all your sins are gone. Be clean actually means to be brand new.
In 2 Corinthians 5 v17 the bible says, therefore if a man be in Christ, he is a new creature, behold all things become new. On this anniversary of Holy Ghost service, I decree to all of you a new beginning, a new beginning of joy, a new beginning of success, of progress, of promotion, of anointing, of the power of God, of the service of God, a new beginning of the life of holiness. If you receive it say amen loud and clear.
Alright let me rush over the message. The bible says immediately, you see when God wants to perform a miracle, it doesn’t take Him time, immediately, just like that, immediately!, it is human doctor that will say take two tablets in the morning, two tablet in the afternoon, two in the evening for one week.
Thank God for doctors, but Jesus is the doctor of all doctors, when He wants to heal, He simply say let there be light and there will be light. There is somebody here today; your miracle will come suddenly.
I mean you remember the testimony of one of my sons, who came to the Holy Ghost congress and according to him, he wasn’t even expecting anything, he just came to enjoy God, but he has had this problem of rashes all over his body, and spent money, bought all sort of soap and all kinds of injection, the rashes just became more and more and then the word came like this, there is someone here , the rashes are gone, ha could that be me? And he looked around and his skin had become clean.
In the same manner, I decree every problem in your life are gone
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said from now on I will treat you as my own special project.
Now if you are the one, please why don’t you join me in thanking Him, why don’t you join me in worshipping Him for one or two minutes? I receive it my Daddy that is a good birthday present for me, I am very grateful, I am very grateful, I am very grateful. I receive it Lord and I just ask that you take all the glory in Jesus Mighty name we worship.
It will be unto you according to your faith in the Mighty name of Jesus even as you have believed, so shall it be to you. Beginning from now every form of leakages will stopped in Jesus name, physical leakage is stopped in Jesus name, financial leakages is stopped in Jesus name, spiritual leakage is stopped in Jesus name.
Beginning from now on, your joy will be full. Now, use the hands that you stretch out in faith, to touch the helm of His garment. Put it in your head first and prophesy to yourself that from now on I won’t labor for nothing.
No more failure for me, no more sorrow, no more curses in my life in the Mighty name of Jesus, from now on the power of God will work Mightily in my life and the anointing of God upon me will remain fresh forever , thank you my father, glory be to God.
Father, in Jesus Mighty name we pray. If you receive that let me hear you shout halleluiah. Common! Give the Lord a big round of applause.

In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed, let somebody shout halleluiah!
I want you to shake hand with three or two people and say good evening, God will bless you tonight, God will bless you tonight. Please I repeat take good care of your children, this auditorium is big, even an adult could get lost here, so keep your children by your side and please when it is time for laying hands and anointing of children, for the sake of the children, please let there be no rush. We will not leave here until everybody has been attended to. Please whatever we do tonight because of the children, it must be done in a very orderly fashion.
Mark 10 v 13 -16 the preacher who preached before me took a text, it was telling the same story that I wanted to speak on. Thank God, he took his text from Matthew, am taking my own from Mark, so maybe we will be able to add little to what the Evangelist had already said. It is always a dangerous thing for a pastor to preach after an Evangelist has spoken. God bless all our Evangelist in the name of Jesus and God bless our pastor in Jesus name. Mark 10 v 13 -16 and they brought young children to Him that He should touched them and His disciple rebuke those that brought them, but when Jesus saw it, He was much displeased and said unto them, suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not for such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall not enter therein and He took them up in His hand, put His hand upon them and bless them, He took them up in His arms, put His hands upon them and bless them.
All children are born the same, born naked, dirty, helpless and totally dependent and most of the time very noisy and the noise of the children are very pleasing to the parent. If you are husband and your wife is in the Labor room and suddenly you heard a baby crying, you jump for joy and probably while the bible says we who are the children of God should make a joyful noise to the Lord (amen). When you find a house, where you find no noise, you can be sure there are no children there. In any house where there are children, healthy children, there is noise, the parent may say hey! Shut up, don’t you know I am studying but deep down they are happy, I pray for somebody here today, who have been believing God for the fruit of the womb, very soon in your home, there will be shout of children, children are born the same, there is nobody dressed from the womb.
There is nobody born already washes before they are born into the world, there is no baby born that begins to walk on the same day, if there is such a child, the parent will be afraid but things change rapidly for children.
Almost immediately after birth, things begin to change, after they’ve washed them and it is time to dress, things begin to change, the dress that the child of the president will put on is not likely to be like the one the son of the messenger will put on, by the time they become adult, the difference will be clear. However in the scriptures as well as among the elders there is prove that the son of a king can become a slave and the son of a slave can become a chief. Esther was a daughter of a slave, but she becomes a queen, what changes the son of a messenger to a president? It is something called the Blessing of God.
That is one of the reasons you have brought your children tonight, to change their destinies. Not only that, one of the major reason why we say let us set a April apart for our children, is that not all it is not children that are born who will become adult, now we don’t want our children to die young. Some years ago, I noticed a pattern that when the changes of season comes.
As we begin to move from rainy season to dry season, many, many children fall sick and many die, but God knows I love children passionately and I cried to Him, what do we do? That is why He said, set a month apart for them. And I thank God things have changed since then. I pray to tonight that all the children that are brought here, sickness will see them and run. Demon will see them and run.
The bible say in Psalm 37 v 22 He said the blessed one will inherit the earth but the curse will be cut off, those that are blessed, they will live long, those who are bless the bible say they will inherit the earth, but those who are cursed shall be cut off. It is my prayer none of your children will die prematurely.
When you consider two brothers in the bible; Esau and Jacob, am sure you know they are born of the same parents, they were born the same day, by the same mother, but one got a major blessing, the other got a residual blessing. When Esau came and say Papa I have come for my blessing, the father said someone has picked the blessing. He said don’t you have any blessing left, the father said, I have already made him lord.
All the children that are brought here today, they will be master and not servants. By the time the two of them grew up, Esau was still blessed at least, he had 400 body guards.
That is another story but at least he got a residual blessing and he prosper so much that wherever he goes, 400 body guard had to look after him, but the brother that got the original blessing became a whole nation. I pray for your children tonight, they will become a nation.
Thank you Father, there is a pregnant woman here tonight, the Lord says the forces binding the baby in your womb have been scattered.
So why did we bring our children to the Lord? For blessing. Your children are very crucial to your future; if you turn to Psalm 127 v 3 -5 the bible tells us certain things about the children. Psalm 127 v 3 -5 he said lo! Children are heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is his reward and as arrow are in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of the youth. Happy are the man that have his quiver full of them, they shall not be ashamed but they shall speak to the enemy at the gate. What are children? The bible calls them heritage, He calls them fruits, He calls them reward, He calls them arrow, He calls them gate defender in other passages in the bible for example Genesis 22 v 16 -18. You can see that children are referred to as seed and determinant of your future; they are therefore your destiny. Thank you Jesus, The Lord said there is someone here, you are so weak, you can hardly sit down. The Lord asks me to tell you, strength is returning to you now. When you go toExodus 20 v 4 -5, you find that children are also refer to as your generation, so therefore, a blessing on your children, means a lot to you, it mean a lot to your future, it means a lot to your destiny, so when we now look at the text we read in Mark 10 v13-16 You will see that the parents that brought their children to God are a very wise parent. And a closer examination of that story shows that God has a special interest in those parents because according to John 6 v 44 Jesus Christ said, no man can come unto Me except my Father draws him, even the parents that brought their children to Jesus Christ were drawn by God.
Blessed parents, chosen parents, so all parents who brought their children here to the Almighty God, let me hear you shout halleluiah. Because you are blessed parent, and then in that text, we found that the Lord do certain things ,we may not have enough time to deal with them but at least, there are seven major things which the Lord did at that very moment.
First, He was angry with those who are trying to prevent children to come unto Him when you go through the scripture, you will find out that there are only three times in the entire life of the Lord Jesus when He was angry. He was angry at the pretenders, those who were saying, why are you healing on Sunday? He was angry with those who were buying and selling at the temple. He was angry with those who were angry with those who were preventing children from coming unto Him
Secondly, He gave an open invitation to the children, let them come unto me. Thirdly, He commanded obstruction on these children to give way; fourthly, He gave a big revelation, concerning children and the kingdom of God. He said these people you are trying to hinder are the owner of the kingdom of heaven, unless you become like one of them you are not going to enter.
Then fifthly, He took the children up in His arms. Now when you study the bibles always pay attention to each word, He didn’t say He took one of them in His hand. What did it say? He took them in His hand, in other words, He suspended what He was doing and picked them one by one, one by one. Jesus Christ is going to carry me in His hand today. He carried them one by one. He then laid His hands on them, not just one out of them and then He bless them, took up the children in His hands, lay His hands upon them and bless them.
We will look at He lays His hands upon them and then we will look at He blessed them. After that we will pray amen.
The Lords said there is someone here tonight; He said I will extend my mercy to your children.
Daddy says there is somebody here tonight, He said the frequent gathering of sorrow in your family, shall cease.
He carried them; do you know that the Almighty God is able to carry you and all your problems and your children?
In Isaiah 53 v 4 the bible calls Him the burden bearer. In Isaiah 46 v 3-4 He said I am the one who have been carrying you from the womb even to old age I will carry you. I have been carrying you from the womb, I don’t get tired, I will carry you even to old age. It was in the month of February that a famous evangelist; Dr Umai Epai was given testimony and he told us how a vehicle that contains his wife and his children fell into the river, the wife couldn’t swim, the children couldn’t swim but he could swim, he jumped in and he has to decide who do I rescue and he chose to rescue the wife and the children drown. I can see the pain in his voice; he was face with a choice, a horrible choice. Do I rescue my children and let my wife drown both there is a God, who can rescue wife and rescue children and rescue husband and rescue uncle and rescue aunty. He is God, He carry them all.
Every burden in your life and in the life of your family , the Almighty will carry for you tonight. Then He laid hands on them, as we saw in Matthew 8 v 1-3 when he lays hands on people, it could be to reverse the irreversible according to Mark 5 v 35-42 When He touches someone, it could be to strengthen; it could be to banish weakness and illness.
1 king18 v 46, from the moment He touched Elijah, until he went to heaven in chariot of fire, He was never sick again. I prophecy into somebody here today as God touches you and touches your children, you will be heal. The irreversible will be reversed and you will never know sickness again. If I were you, I will say amen loud and clear.
Thank you Father, the Lord says there is someone who is completely dry now, everything is completely dry. He asked me to tell you, I will give you rain.
When God touches, it could be to impart wisdom. Deuteronomy 34 v 9; the bible says Joshua the son of nun was full of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. God commanded “Moses lay your hands on Joshua” and wisdom was imparted to him. As we bring our children forward tonight as hand are laid on them, during the anointing, the wisdom to excel shall be given unto them in Jesus name.
And then He blessed them, this is where I am going to spend some time. He carried them, the burden bearer. He can carry you and carry your children. He lays His hands upon them to heal, to reverse the irreversible, to make sure that they remain forever healthy, to give them divine wisdom and then He blessed them.
Let us consider the fact that children are seed in Matthew 3 v 3 – 8 The bible made it clear that not all seeds falls on good soil, not all seeds; that is why you will find out that not all children born of the same parents ends up the same way, some seed fall by the way side, some seeds falls on stormy ground, some seed falls among thorns and some seed fall on good soil. It is my prayer tonight that as your children, are blessed by the special grace of God, they will become seeds that fall on good soil.
Every one of you the elders know that some people will dwell in a particular place and prosper there and some people will dwell in another place and die of poverty.
I know quite a number of people who relocated because they felt the ground on which there are standing might not be a good soil, when you find yourself on good soil, when the Almighty God guides you to good soil, whatever you do there, you will prosper. I am praying for those of you who are here tonight, parents and children alike. Wherever your good soil maybe, God will take you there, let’s take these stories one by one.
What about the children who fall by the way side, do we have example? Oh! Sure, those who fall by the way side always die young. Without achieving their destiny; A good example in the bible is the man called Absalom, you know the story very well, he was rebellious as ever and in 2Samuel 18 v 29 – 33, he died prematurely. I remember very well, as I was preparing for this sermon, I remember a young fellow about my age, some fifty years ago, 1957 in my village, to own a bicycle, is to be a special fellow, there were two kinds of bicycle then, they call one Rodge, they called the other Rally. Rally is the supreme thing. So to own a rally in my village then is like to own a Royce, this young boy was about my age mate and he had already bought a rally. Anything he touched just seems to be blossoming and then there was an elderly man in the village who married a young wife and the young wife was attracted to the man who has a rally and so the young man was having an affair with the new wife, and the elderly man called a family meeting, the meeting of those living in the compound, help me warn this boy, tell him to leave my wife alone; it was an open secret.
Tell him to leave my wife alone and he promised, I won’t go near her again. After that warning, the elderly man put something on the wife, those of you who are old among the Yoruba tribe knows what we call “don’t climb”, when they put it on a wife, if you climb her, you won’t come down. That is how the young man went. He has a bright future but his seed feel by the way side. He was rebellious. He was doing those things that were not expected of a young fellow. He died young. I pray tonight, none of your children will die young in the name of Jesus Christ.
Thank you Lord. Daddy says there is someone here tonight, that by now the fellow should be walking but he is still crawling, he will begin to take the first step tonight.
Now that apply to children, it also apply to adult, to children, God is talking about something physical; the child that ought to be walking and he is still crawling he would begin to walk from tonight to, adult He is saying where you are suppose to be you are not there yet, so from tonight you will begin to walk halleluiah!
The Lord says just to show you how great I am, the retarded will become a genius.
Now let’s talk about the seed that falls on the stony ground, any child who falls on stony ground will grow up having no roots, he will never be able to stay long in any job, he will be going from one school to another, the marriage will never be permanent. In one house today, in another house tomorrow, that is how you know a child that falls on a stony ground.
A good example is Cain Genesis 4 v 8 -12 and the Lord curse Cain, He said he will be vagabond, going from one place to another, never be able to settle down, when they are doing a trade it will fail, they try another, it will fail , they try another it will fail. Any of you who may have that kind of problem, you will get solution tonight in Jesus name.
But then there is the seeds that fall among the thorns, a seed that fall among the thorns is a seed that will be destroyed by the enemy. There are people who are hated for no just cause, people hate them, in their place of work for nothing and they are hated in the home for nothing. If they ever succeed, to get married there will be one problem after another. Usually the enemies don’t stop until they have truncated their destiny.
You will find an example in Act 6v8 Told us that Stephen perform great miracle among the people but they killed him in his youth, they stoned him, he did not offend them. Only God could have tell what Stephen could have become because his colleague; Philip became an evangelist with four daughters, all the four daughters prophecy.
They did not even allow Stephen to reach the age of getting married because he fell among thorns. There are some of us who are living among thorns right now. The Almighty God will pull you out. I remember very well the story , I must have told you before, I went to greet a pastor and after I have greet them as I was about to leave, the wife was carrying a baby at her back and the people said the baby will never allow anybody to carry her, but as I was going, the baby stretched herself towards me, she stretched so violently that she was almost falling from the back of the mother, so I had to pick up the child and pray for the child. Not long after, the mother began to confess and said that was the day she was to kill that girl, the girl saw death coming, she saw a servant of God and stretched forward.
The girl was born by thorn but the Almighty God rescued her. The mother died but the child is growing more beautiful than ever. Any thorn that wants to choke you to death the fire of the Almighty God will consume them.
The Lord said there is someone here, He says the problem that your joy never lasted but from now henceforth, your joy will be permanent.
Again we now find the seed that fall on a good soil when a seed falls on a good soil, it doesn’t matter they will continue to blossom. They are the people who Psalm 23 v 5 is talking about; He said thou prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemy.
David was growing up among thorns, left to his brother; David wouldn’t have been anything in the world. Even his father doesn’t want to present him for kingship. But God grab him and brought him into the midst of their enemy and right there, he anoints him that is why he said thou prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemy. The people who fall on good soil are the people who are blessed. Who are anointed? It is my prayer that you and your children will fall on good soil in Jesus name, now children are seeds but they are also called heritage. Because when you a child, because blessing is like a river, it will begin to flow downward.
A blessed father will translate to a blessed son; a blessed child will translate to a blessed father.
Proverb 13 v 22 says a good man leave an inheritance for his children, children, the moment somebody is blessed in the family, from that time henceforth all those coming after him will receive blessing. Whereas if somebody in the family, just as blessing flow down, so do curses flow down, so if somebody is cursed the children will be curse, the children, children will be curse, unless God intervene. Our fathers know this in the olden days, when you want to marry. Not nowadays that you see somebody in the bus and you become husband and wife.
In those days when somebody come into your family and he says he wants to marry your daughter, he will say I have heard, he will say go, I have heard, I will send you a reply. So he will begin to research into his family history, is there leprosy in their family? Has somebody run mad in the family before, elders am I speaking the truth? If the great grandfather is a leper they will say no, they didn’t study science, they didn’t know what we called DNA, but there are no curses upstream. If there is madness somewhere up stream, sooner or later it will show up again and they say sorry o! Our daughter is not for you. You know the story of Ghazi that the leprosy clings on you and your children. I pray to God tonight, if there is any curse remaining in the family, may the Almighty God destroy tonight.
When your children are blessed, your heritage is blessed, your future is blessed, I remember one man, who had a mighty mansion in Osun, and we went to witness to him and he said, I am too committed to Satan, he said it is too late for me to accept Jesus. Please! Jesus will cancel every covenant, he said no way. He was a wealthy man, had a big mansion and died in his sin. The children removed the roof, the window one by one and sold them. I pray that your children will not become source of sorrow to you in the name of Jesus.
And then we said children are the seed, they are your heritage, they are your destiny. So when you destiny is blessed, when your children are blessed, it means your destiny is blessed. Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here, He said the enemies are changing tactics, He ask me to tell you, don’t worry, I am still the Lord of host. Ell they can change their tactics any way they want, they will meet the Lord of host waiting for them. A blessing can alter a destiny. An encounter with Jesus can dramatically change the destiny of someone. An encounter with the Almighty God, the unchangeable changer can determine how someone is going to end. A mad man can end up an evangelist as you find in Mark 5 v 1-20, a witch could end up become a divine treasurer, according to Luke 18 v 1-3, if your children are bless, your destiny can change beyond your wildest dreams.
One sister was giving a testimony in London, she said years ago, a man prophesy to her and said sister, I see you live in a white man’s country, she laughed, white man’s country? She said maybe some black people bleached themselves. How do I get to a white man’s country? I can’t speak English, even if I can speak English, I don’t have whatever paper they use, where will I get the money for the ticket, but then God bless the children, the children went abroad and brought houses there and they began to have children there, they sent for their mama, come and help us to look after our children.
And the one, who never taught she could get to Ikeja, is now living in Britain. It doesn’t matter what your destiny is tonight, it will change for the better and then the bible says children are arrows, arrows in the hand of the Mighty, the Lord say there is someone here tonight, He said, I should tell you , I will cause you to smile again. I will cause you to smile again.
When I was studying the bible and I saw children compare to an arrow and I know that arrow are weapon of offence. If you want to fight your enemy, you stand here and send an arrow, that means if your children are blessed, then your enemies are in trouble because they are arrows that is what God calls them, provided they are appointed into the right direction in Genesis 14 ,if you read from 15-16 when Abraham heard that lot had been captured by the enemy, his army consisted of only those that were born in his own house, they are the one he use to rescue his brother. Something happen because I learn lesson from everything around me, something happen on this camp that showed me it is good to have children.
All of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, my Father will answer you, those of you who have already had children nothing will happen to them in Jesus name. I have a dog, which I called lady white, when she first came to this camp she was very small and whenever I go out she will follow me and the big dog will begin to harass her, usually I will carry it in my hands so that the big ones will not harm her then she began to have children, the first time she had eight and the children began to multiply, now when she is going , surrounded by her children, any dog that is wise will stay away, but earlier this year, I was going out in the night to pray. Lady White out of excitement followed me alone.
She forgot to call the children and we got to a place where there were two big dogs, oh! When they pounce on Lady White, before I could wrestle her from them, the nose was bleeding, the ear was bleeding, the head was bleeding. I took Lady white home and treated lady white and then I traveled, by two weeks later, I came back and I was going for my walk again, this time Lady white call all the children and my route took me pass those two big dogs and I saw something interesting, the two dogs taught , well we handle her the other time, so they tried to attack this time and Lady white did something very strange, she sat down and began to wag her tail and the children attacked those two big dogs, I had to rescue those two big dogs from the children. I decree tonight, your children will go out as arrow against the enemy. I think you should say amen to that.
I can tell you more stories but let me leave it at that. However if the arrow is pointed in the wrong direction, if the arrow is in the wrong hands, it can have devastating effect. Consider the sons of Eli, they were arrows too, but they were arrows in the hands of the enemy and they destroy the destiny of their father in 1Samuel 2 v 27 – 34 that Almighty God said concerning Eli particularly in verse 30 there, after God have said you prefer your children above ne? Your children are misbehaving and you did not correct them the way you should. God then said in verse 30, He said , I said indeed that you and your father’s house shall stand before me forever, but now I said be it far from me and God went on to say those that I didn’t kill in your family will beg before they eat.
The sons of Eli destroy the destiny of their father. I pray for you tonight your children will not destroy your destiny, I have share with you before, years ago, I went to preach in a house, I mean a group was meeting in a house, they invited me to come and preach and I was going to talk about the God of miracles now before they got ready they ask me to go and sit in the sitting room of the one hosting the program. It is in V.I , when I got in and I saw five living rooms in ascending order of splendors, I said I better change my topic, these people don’t need miracle, look at what I am seeing. The Lord spoke to me and said you are mistaken; they need miracle more than you think particularly the owner of this house. I went ahead and did my preaching.
Later on I was to learn that in that house, there was one boy, who was on drug, oh there is wealth in the family but this child was symphony the wealth to buy drugs and when the mother refuse to let him have money to buy drugs, he decided to deal with the mother. He discovered the mother was travelling abroad, after the mother had packed, he sneaked some drugs into the bag of the mother so when the mother got abroad, they arrested her for carrying drug. You can imagine the embarrassment, not only the problem abroad, if the news had made the national paper here everybody will have said oh! So this is how they made the money. I pray your children will not become tormentor to you in Jesus name. And then the bible calls children gate defenders. He said blessed is the man whose quiver is full of arrow, they will not be ashamed but they will be able to answer those who are at the gate.
Gate defenders; when you children are blessed you can turn the table against those who are mocking you. When your children are bless you can tell those who have been reproaching you to shut their mouths. Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here those who are waiting for you to die will have to wait a long time. In Proverb 27 v 11 the book of proverb says be wise so that my heart can be glad, that I may answer him that reproach me. My son be wise, be blessed so that those things that I can’t do you will be able to do for me and silence those who are mocking me and reproaching me. I pray for you tonight the height that you cannot reach tonight, your children will go beyond it.
I was sharing a story with people at the headquarter early in the year, I said I have a little house in my home town and at the back yard there is a place, a kind of elevated place where, a kind of place whereby when I am in town, I can pray, so when we went home around Christmas time, I went with my sons and we stood on that platform and we survey the compound, the concrete, the light , beautiful.
I suddenly I remember the story my father told me several years ago. Because my father died in 1960, my father said that when he was young, all the young boys were cleaning the bush along the compound and one day as they were clearing the bush they began to make some prophesies as it were. One said when I am old I will build my house here, the other said I will build mine next to you and my father said I will build my own here and all of them like one, like thorn gang up against him, they said we are talking of building houses and you are talking, they say you will build a house! It happen before he married my mother.
The thing must have pain my father so such that he remember to tell me even when I was old. I told my children see now, they said my father will never build a house by the grace of God my house is one of the most beautiful hose in ife-wara now and one of my son took a step further and said God is wonderful, the one that they say his father cannot build a house is the one God is using to build a city, there is somebody here today, it doesn’t matter what they say concerning you, your children will tell them that they are lying.
Let me conclude. I am stopping early so that we have plenty of time to attend to the children so that there will be nourish. Before you begin to think of bringing your children for blessing, where do you stand with God, you see because the word of God is forever settle.
Proverbs 10 v 7 says the memory of the just is blessed but the name of the wicked will rot. I don’t have time to show you that another name for your children is memory, but it is easy to know that, it is your children that carry on your memory. The fact that you came into this world is illustrated with by your children. If you are doing the will of God, the bible say your memory will be bless, your children will be bless but the name of the wicked will rot. What do we mean by the name it’s your children, your children will carry on your name. The bible says if you are doing wickedly your children will rot. In other words even if wicked man has children at all it will be so that they can destroy his memory. So that when people see these children they don’t want to remember their parents. Before you bring your children to God, bring yourself first, male sure you are already on the side of God, it is only when you are on His side that your children have a future.
When you are on His side that is when your children have a future. When you are on the side of God, the bible say I was young, now I am old, I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging to eat. If you are on the side of God, He will take care of your children, if you are not on the side of God, after you are gone, there will be a lot of trouble for the children, so please if you are a parent and you are not yet born again , for the sake of your children, come and give your life to Jesus and if you are a child remember there are parent who are good but the children themselves fell on stony ground, if you are old enough to know what is salvation, come and give your life to Jesus Christ, so that He can save your soul and the blessing of God can stick on you.
If you are old enough to decide for Jesus Christ and you don’t decide for Him, no matter how much anointing that is put on your head, the sin will not allow the anointing to work. So those of you who want to give their life to Jesus come now…. Father I want to thank you because you are the one who said no man can come to you except the Father draws him, thank you because they have not refuse your drawing, please on their behalf accept our thanks in Jesus name, Father you promise that whosoever will come unto you, you will never cast away, they have come now please receive them in Jesus name. Forgive them in Jesus name; let your blood wipe away their sin in Jesus name.
Almighty God I am committing everyone of them into your hands, as you save their soul today with their names in the book of life, every blessing you have for us today give them their own portion in Jesus name. Let them serve you to the end; don’t let them go back to the world, thank you my Father in Jesus name. Let the serve you to the end, don’t let them go back to the world, thank you my father. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen. Those of you in front let me hear you shout halleluiah. The greatest of all miracles is the salvation of soul, see so many souls save today and you are not even excited, I taught by now we will all be on our feet rejoicing and clapping, praising the Almighty God, putting our hands together for Almighty God, big, big clap to God showing Him that you really love Him, that we thank you for the salvation of soul.
Now I want you to lift up your voice to the Almighty God, your children are your future, they are your destiny, lift up your voice to the Almighty God and say Father bless my future, bless my destiny, go ahead and pray. Open your mouth and pray. It is up to you, pray, your future is as stake, your destiny is at stake, Father bless my future, bless my destiny, bless my future, bless my destiny.

Let somebody shout halleluiah
Now this is a special night for the singles, let the singles shout halleluiah. Mark 5v 25-34 and a certain woman who had an issue of blood twelve yrs and has suffer many things of many physicians and as spent all that she had and she was nothing better but rather grew worse.
When she heard of Jesus came and press behind and touched His garment, for she said if I may touch but His cloth, I shall be made whole, and straight away the fountain of her blood was dried up and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague and Jesus already knowing in Himself that virtue has gone out of Him, turned about and say who touched me?
And His disciple said unto Him, thou seeth the multitude thronging thee and sayeth thou who touched me and He looked round about to see her that she has done this thing and saw her, but the woman fearing and trembling knowing what was done in her, came and fall before Him , telling Him all the truth. And He said daughter, thy faith has made had made thee whole, go in peace and be whole of thy plague.
There is somebody here today, whatever may be your problem that problem is going to end today. We said this is a special Holy Ghost service for the singles, so let me begin to tell you one or two thing I love that I know about Jesus Christ. I have been walking with Him now for more than 30 years. I want to thank Him because He Has treated me as a special boy. So I can tell you one or two things about Him.
Number one Jesus love marriages. He performs His first miracle at a weeding, according to John 2 v 1-11, He performed the very first miracle in a weeding and I believe God for someone here tonight that another miracle of Jesus Christ will happen at your weeding soon. He loves weeding because He Himself is preparing for His own wedding Revelation 18 v 5 – 9 made it clear that the greatest thing that is going to happen in the whole history of mankind is the marriage of the lamb.
The lamb of course you know is our Lord Jesus Christ. It is the weeding that will join heaven with earth. Jesus Christ will be the bride groom of the church and the church will be the bride and at that wedding I will be married to Jesus Christ. How many of you will be there that day? I will see you there in Jesus name.
So Jesus loves marriages, so those of you who are single, don’t think Jesus doesn’t care about what you are going through. He is looking forward for your day of wedding and that day will come very soon. Secondly, He loves celebration, when you go through the scriptures, you will see that the bible is full of celebration.
The bible is full of feast; some of the feasts are suppose to last for seven days. When you get home read Leviticus 23. Even if that is the only chapter you read, you will find about seven feast listed there; verse 4-5 talks about the feast of Passover, verse 6-8 talks about the leavened bread, verse 9-14 talks about the feast of first fruits,verse15-22 talks about the feast of Pentecost, verse23-25 talks about the feast of the trumpet, verse 26-32 talks about the feast of the day of atonement, verse33-43 talks about the feast of tabernacle. Feast upon feast upon feast. I am prophesying to someone, for the rest of your life it will be one celebration after another celebration.
Because He love marriages and He loves celebration, that is why He loves clapping and shouting, He loves dancing, He loves music, that is why those who think when you become Christian you must be sorrowful have got it wrong. He said you are to enter His gate with thanksgiving, you are to enter His court with praise, He said you are to clap your hands and shout your voice with a loud triumph.
He loves celebrations, believe me honestly the reason why you don’t see too many miracles in some churches that is cold is because Jesus is not present. He loves praise, singing, dancing. Why? because the winning side is the shouting side and Jesus is a winner, you can never find any situation in His life where He loose, He is a winner and birds of the same feather flock together. Were winners gather there is always rejoicing. And I am decreeing in that name that is above every other name, in your home there will be constant rejoicing. Another thing that I know about Jesus is that He hate loneness, in Genesis 2 v 18 He said it is not good that man should be alone. InHebrew 10 v 25 He encourages the gathering together of saints.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is a child here who is mentally retarded, the Lord says he is been restored to normal, thank you lord.
In Hebrew 13 v 5 He promise I will never leave you, I will never forsake you , He hates loneness, and that is why those of you who are of marriageable age and somehow something is blocking your way and you are suffering from loneness, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ that loneness will end tonight.
Now one of the reasons why He hates loneness is that He knows there is a link between loneness and sorrow and He hates sorrow. Like you and I know that people share joy but it is difficult to share sorrow.
They may sympathize with you, but as the elder will say, it is the fellow who has been hit, who will know he is hit. When it is joy it is easy to share, when it is sorrow it is a different matter. As the elder will say people will, it is the fellow who has been hit, who will know he has been hit. When it is joy it is easy to share, when it is sorrow, it is a different matter. As the elders will say, people will join you in licking the hand of oil.
When it is the hand of blood you are on our own. And so there is a link between loneness and sorrow and Jesus hate sorrow. The bible says in Psalm 16 v 11 He said in His presence there is the fullness of joy. Fullness of joy means absence of sorrow. In Revelation 21 v 3 – 4 the bible says God will wipe away all tears, how many tears? All sorrow.
The bible say in Psalm 30 v 5 He said weeping may endure in a night in the mighty name of Jesus anyone who may be weeping now before the sun rise, your joy shall arrive. So people have always asked this question, what are the possible causes of singleness?
All of over the world today; that is a big problem. Many ladies without husband, many young men who should many who remain single. So what are the possible causes of singleness? Some says it is physical, may be the ladies are not beautiful enough, or maybe the boys are not handsome enough.
But that can’t be true. It can’t be true because the bible says in
Ecclesiastes 3v 11 He said the Almighty God has made everything beautiful in His time. The Almighty God did not create one ugly fellow. He made everything beautiful in Genesis 1 v 31, the bible say when God has finish creating man, He said, behold everything is very good, very good, not a single ugly person. I am going to tell you one or two things, but remember some of these things happened when I wasn’t yet born again, before I was born again,
I was a very naughty boy and naughty boys always have naughty friends, so we have this habit of assessing the girlfriends of our friends and I remember very well that we were trying to convince one of our friends that the mouth of the girl he want to marry is too small.
Remember I told you this happen when I was not born again, you know what he told us?, that the girl has the most kissable mouth in town and on another occasion we wanted to convince another of our friend that the mouth of the girl he wanted to marry is too large, you know what he told us?, he said the girl has the widest smile in town. And I have an uncle whose wife was extra, extra large, you know what my uncle said?, he said I have been looking for a woman who will fill the back seat of my car.
Oh! Lord have mercy.
And then there was case of a lady who is at least two meters tall and the husband was barely a meter tall. When she was cleverly asked, why do you choose someone small as your husband? She said “when I was young, I saw the way my father use to beat my mother. That is why I decided that the fellow I will marry will not even dream of slapping me”, she said the man she married, if he is ever to reach my face, he will have to climb unto the dining table and in climbing on the dining table, I will have found my way into the kitchen.
In other word every fellow has someone in mind that they consider beautiful.
There is that funny fellow. This is going to be a night of joy; do I hear you say amen? There is the funny fellow who say when you see a plump lady, it should remind you of what Jesus Christ says, occupy till I come and if you see one who is rather thin, remember Jesus said narrow is the way.
Let somebody shout halleluiah. In the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, joy will come into your home.
I believe this is the reason the white man said beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The Almighty God will open the eye of your partner and he or she will see you.
If you read Esther 2 v 15 -17, among several virgins, Esther alone fined favor with the king. Everyone who looked at her suddenly said she is beautiful. Very soon the same will be your testimony in Jesus name.
Thank you father, now the Lord said there is someone here tonight … here we are talking about marriage and God is talking about something else.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight he said you have been suffering from recurrent boils.
The Lord asks me to tell you that is over now.
Thank you father; The Lord said there is some one here tonight; the Lord said the barricade shall be brought down.
Now some people say it is no physical it is something social, there is a problem of status. Just like the first preacher said “maybe there is some people on the camel and the person God has for them is on the ground. Everybody knows no matter how high you are, you need help.
Nobody can be an island to himself. Everybody needs an assistance, either you need a cook or a driver or a cleaner, you need somebody and the word of God said in Ecclesiastes 4 v 12 He said two are better than one any time. Our father Abraham, as great as he was, he needed Sarah to produce Isaac, without Sarah there will be no Isaac. Without Elkannah, Hannah would not have produce Samuel.
You need a partner, everybody needs someone else and who knows the person you are looking down on today can rise up tomorrow.
Thank you Father, He said there is someone here, the Lord said I should tell you no more bedwetting.
Thank you Father, Daddy says in this service shall come irreversible testimonies. In 1 Samuel 2 v 8, bible says God can pick up a beggar among dunghill and cause him to seat among prince. Don’t write me off you don’t know my tomorrow, it is in the hand of Almighty God.
Tell your neighbor believe it or not my tomorrow will be alright in Jesus name.
One of the stories I always love to say is the story of a sister who is an accountant in a very big company.
And she has been crying to God “God show me my partner, I want to marry”
One day God spoke to her look at the window, whoever you see, that is your husband.
so she looked, she said nobody is there Lord, the Lord said look towards the gate and so she look eagerly, expecting a gate to be open and see a man drive in with a big Mercedes Benz, then she saw nobody.
She said “Lord I see nobody” then God said there is a man there, ah! The only man there is the gate keeper; God said that is your husband.
Ah! Let me tell you a story within a story, you remember the story of a sister who said , God I want you to give me somebody to marry, anyone , anyone and then somebody came immediately and said thus says the Lord you are to be my wife and the sister looked up and said God I said anyone not anything.
Oh! God have mercy all you brothers, whatever is in your life that will cause people call you anything, God almighty is going to remove it tonight in the mighty name of Jesus.
Anyway the sister looked at the window and saw the gatekeeper, she struggle with God foe while, finally she went to the pastor, this is what God said.
The pastor says the brother has come, I only don’t know how to tell you. The brother had come and said “God said”. To cut the long story short, the two of them met and they discovered that the man was not just a gate man because he wanted but because he has no one to sponsor him to higher institution.
So the sister sponsor and they got married, they are one of the happiest couple in my church today. I am telling you right now the gateman is one of my senior Pastors.
Don’t write me off, you don’t know my tomorrow; my tomorrow is in the hand of Almighty God. And I decree into the life of everyone here tonight, your tomorrow will be alright.
Some people says no, no, no it is not a matter of status that it is financial, that many of the single boys wants to become rich before they get married; They want to become a millionaire before they settle down, now I agree very well that is good to have a job before you get married. Genesis 2 v 15 comes before Genesis 2 v18.
In Genesis 2v15 God gave a job to Adam. In Genesis 2v18 where he said man should not be alone. In fact the bible said anyone who cannot provide for his household is worse than an infidel. So definitely you must not even think of getting married. If you aren’t got a job and I will never allow my daughter to marry a jobless fellow. Those of people who will say don’t worry let’s get married , after marriage in the Redeem Christian Church of God when you say God has said, that you want to marry a girl, I want to see your bank account ah! I have just lost my job ok bring your past paying slip all this emergency contractors those who had no job, those one are not to be consider at all but when the fellow already has a job, what again are you waiting for?
Husband have a job, wife has a job both of you are hardworking. Tomorrow will be alright.
When I got married, I hope my wife will not mind my telling you, we had no money even to buy a wedding cake, but I was a graduate but I had a job, my wife also has a job. We knew we could feed ourselves, we knew we could take of the minor things. Today if we want a wedding cake that will be the size of this altar, there will be people that who will buy it for us free of charge.
And if you are thinking of buying a cake for us get ready this year we will be marking the 40th anniversary of our wedding. So if we had no wedding cake at that time, it might be a good idea to have 40 wedding cakes now.
There some men who wait till they be a millionaire before they marry they discovered that they were too old for a wife to marry him.
And then some people say it is educational, somebody with a PhD wants to marry someone who has a PhD, now it is good that those who are going to get married should be relatively intelligent Amos 3 v 3 says how can two work together, except they be agreed.
Proverbs13 v 20 it says that those walk with the wise will be wise, but the companion of fool will be destroyed. It is good that the two should be intelligent somewhat, however very high academic qualification will not necessary bring peace the home. I will tell one or two stories
In one of our university that I use to visit, there is a sister who is always saying please help me to pray there is problem in my family, trouble in your marriage, quarrel every day, until one day the spirit God ministered to me, what this woman want is counseling .so I called her, you want peace in your home? she said yes sir, he said very good day when you get home, after you have set the table for your husband go to him and say darling, the table is set when he comes to eat, take the bowl of water in your hands go on your knees and say my Lord wash your hands.
She said never! me?
for that rascal? He is a senior lecturer, I am also a senior lecturer”
I said “fine you are the one who say you want peace, try it for two weeks”.
It’s alright I will try it.
She got home told her husband “darling the table is set”
First of all it is a long time the husband heard darling. And then he came to the table the woman knelt down and the man said “what is going on here”?
To cut the story short, the man said is this they are teaching you in your fellowship?
The woman said yes, the man said I think I will better follow you. Within two weeks, the man became born again. And I know a professor who is marry to a school certificate holder. When they asked the professor why go so low? He said what I want in my home is not grammar. Peace so it is not a matter of education. I think that this problem is spiritual.
I believe that the problem of many unmarried girls and boys is spiritual, am not saying all of them but majority of them. I believe there are those who are under satanic bondage and I believe that they will be free tonight. InLuke 13v 10-17 the bible tells us of a woman that Jesus Christ said she has been bind for eighteen years. If one is bind by Satan, the only thing the person will be asking for is only freedom not marriage.
Thank God we have someone called the stronger man and His name is Jesus. If you are bound God will set you free in Jesus name. some of you have heard me shared what happen in one of our program; the word of God came, that there is someone here, your mother is the one who is saying you will not get married and is she will not release you, she will die within seven days.
The word just came out like and then the following day a woman came with her daughter, she was very angry with me. “Are you the pastor teaching these children wrong things telling my daughter that I am the one blocking her way to marriage?” I said no, sister did I mention your name? Did I say it’s your mother? I said Mama don’t mind her, all that God said is that there is somebody in the congregation.
The mother didn’t want her to get married and if the mother would not allow her to get married, the mother will die within seven days.
That’s all God said He didn’t mention your name at all, she said is that so? so she said you girl, you go out.
The girl went out and she said pastor, “is it true that the woman will die”?
I said as “God lives, one day is already gone, remaining six days left”.
Ehen! She said it is not that I don’t want her to get married; it is that; who will take care of me when she gets married? She is the one feeding me; she is the one taking care of me.
Ah! Mama that is a simple thing; Let her marry I will tell the husband that they will take care of you even more than before.
This girl is feeding you, clothing you, providing for you and you want to keep her in sorrow. Release her. She said alright, alright, I will release her.
I decree tonight anyone who is blocking your way to marriage, if they don’t lose you tonight, before the next Holy Ghost service we shall burry them.
Six months later the girl was married.
Bondage and many at times you don’t even know where the bondage is coming from. And at times it could be as a result of curse.
You know the purpose of a curse when a person is curse is that all forces will begin to work against that fellow, until the fellow is completely destroyed.
When you read Deuteronomy 28 v 62 and you read the same Deuteronomy 28 v 24 you will see that the purpose of curse is to wipe out somebody. So if a curse had been pronounce on a family, since the only way a family can continue to expand is by their children getting married, it means none of them will be able to marry. If they can’t marry, they can’t reproduce, if they don’t reproduce, steadily the family will decline.
But thank God according to Galatians 3 v 13 -14, the bible say Christ have delivered us from the curse of the law and I decree tonight , every curse upon your family shall be destroy in Jesus name.
Oh! Thank you father, two Fridays ago, we had a Holy Ghost service in London, we were discussing a very serious topic and suddenly I heard God say life is returning to your toes.
Now I was wondering what toe has got to do with the important things we were discussing until testimony time and we heard of a man who came all the way from Spain.
He heard that we are going to have Holy Ghost service but one of his toe was hurting him so badly, so badly that he couldn’t wear shoes and he decide he must go to the Holy Ghost service so he came to the Holy Ghost service barefooted and God picked him out of that big crowd and sent healing to his toe. Now the reason I am telling you this story is because God say there is someone here tonight, life is returning to your joint.
Thank you Father. Halleluiah!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said, I will cause you to swim in the river of my pleasure.
Now another spiritual reason why people don’t get married when they should is evil covenant; some children when they are born they are covenanted to evil forces as a result of which when they grow up the evil forces began to follow them about. They are covenanted to evil forces, who will now say to any man who looked at their direction that this one is for me.
I have told you the story of a woman who had four daughters and not a single one of them is married. Nobody came to say how now.
She came and say please pray for me, I want my children to get married and I wanted to pray, when God said don’t worry yourself ask her what she has done with her daughters. After a lot of dodging the question she said she has covenanted them to Ifa oracle. All four of them, so that when people come; the Ifa oracle will say this is my own, go away.
But thank God says in Isaiah 28 v18 the bible says any covenant shall be disannulled, Isaiah 49 v 24-26 the bible says even the lawful captive shall be set free. Every covenant that has been entered into on your behalf by the authority upon Jesus Christ, I cancel them in Jesus name.
Am sure you also remember the story of another girl who came to me and said …
Thank you father, the Lord said there is a young man here, you use to lead the class but now you are almost at the bottom of the class, the Lord ask me to tell you, the tide will turn.
…So this girl said I have got a man I am going to marry I said congratulation, she said no, no, not congratulation,
I said why?
She said my father told me that when I was born, that I was dedicated to mummy water, that I must never marry and that if I dare to marry; on the day of wedding the man I want to marry will die and I don’t want to be the course of the death of any fellow.
I said is that it? There is no problem, I have a God who is bigger than any mummy water, anyway we prayed a simple prayer, we cancel the covenant and I didn’t see her for a while.
One day I was invited to come and preach in a church and I saw the girl breast feeding a baby. She looked at me and says did you remember me? I said of course you are the mummy water girl, I said where is the brother? And she pointed to one handsome Youngman.
Every force that is laying claims on anyone of you, they will leave you alone today.
So that brings me to our text, the woman with the issue of blood, she had all these problem we have been talking about and even more, she was physically sick, socially she was regarded as unclean, financially she was a destitute, spiritually she was bound and anyone in the old days who is having her kind of problem is regarded as someone who is under a curse.
But one day heaven moved for her. She heard that Jesus Christ is passing by; she came touched the hem of His garment and all her problems was solved in one single day.
Malachi 4 v 2 says unto them that fear my name shall the sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings. Unto them that fear my name, unto them that believe in me, the sun of righteousness shall arrive and just one touch with His wings and there will be total healing.
She touched the helm of the garment of Jesus Christ, she was healed, she was delivered, the devourer was silence and God even did more for her than she expected.
Number one, God located her in the crowd. The search light of the Almighty God pointed at her Isaiah 9 v 2He said, those who sit in darkness has seen a great light. Those who are sitting in the shadow of death, has a great light shine.
I don’t know who you are in these great crowds, but the Almighty God will locate you tonight in Jesus name.
Jesus said who touched me? And very soon she was identified. In John 5 v 2 – 9 there was a crowd at Bethesda but, God identified the man has been there for thirty eight years and gave him is miracle. Many of you have been waiting for a partner for years, God will identify you tonight. And God did move than that, He make sure she was brought forward God revealed her.
She was brought out of hiding in Luke 1 v 80 the bible made it clear that there is a day of revelation, the day of showing and there are some of you that up till now all your qualities are hidden by the enemy, your day of revelation will come now. And not only that because the Lord brought her out into the open, she was advertised, everybody saw ha!
This was the lady who has been sick all these years had been healed. This lady who had been suffering, her sufferings are over. Everybody suddenly began to talk about her, the Lord advertised her.
All of you who are single, the Lord Himself will advertise you. And then the Lord blessed her and say go in peace, you are already healed now and the Lord bless her and when God blesses, nobody can curse.
Thank you father, somebody just said, Lord when will the sun rise for me? Daddy says tomorrow morning.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is a woman here; He said very soon there will be a healthy shaking in your womb.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said from now on you will no longer be a victim of frustration.
Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said from now on destiny will continue to pull you upper.
So heaven move for this woman, her physical problem was solved, her financial problem was solved, her spiritual problem was solved. God located her, God identify her, God revealed her, God advertised her and God bless her, all these shall be your testimony in Jesus name.
So now that you are about to marry, I thought some people will say amen, or maybe you didn’t believe me or did you think I decide what will be the theme for a Holy Ghost service?. No it is Daddy who decides and if He decides, it is because He wants to do something.
So some people very soon for you, the wedding bell will ring. But then if you go on, because you are going to marry now whether the devil likes it or not, there are certain things I must tell you.
Proverb 24v3-4, through wisdom is a house build and by understanding, it is established and by knowledge shall chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. You want to marry?
You need knowledge, understanding and wisdom. What I am about to say is also good for you who has been married but it is especially for those who before the end of this year will be saying “I do”.
You need knowledge and I believe am qualified on this, I have been on this journey of marriage now for almost forty years.
So I can on this, don’t marry for beauty sake. Proverbs 31 v 30 says favor is deceitful and beauty is vain, a woman that fears the Lord shall be praise.
Don’t marry for beauty sake because there are beautiful witches and there are handsome armed robbers.
I in was LUTH, several years ago; I went to conduct a service for the nurses’ fellowship. When I finished and I was leaving, one very beautiful lady ran after me, and I am telling you this, this lady was beautiful.
She said sir after listening to you tonight, I want my problem solved, I said what is your problem?
She said; I have three eye, one is right on my forehead and with it I can see into the womb of married ladies and any child I see, if I don’t like the mother, I can kill the baby right in the womb.
I pray you will not marry the wrong fellow. But thank God there is a power in the Mighty name of Jesus. I touched that particular eye and it went blind and if there is any beautiful witch here tonight, in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ you will never fly again.
Don’t marry for beauty sake it is only a woman that fears the Lord that shall be praised.
It is better to be single than to marry the wrong person. If you don’t believe me ask Samson in Judges 16 v 4-21, Delilah was beautiful and she brought Samson down and she didn’t hide, she ask Him directly, what is the source of your power? How can you be bound so that you can be tormented? She asked him point blank. The only thing was that it is too late for Samson was already married to her.
Those of you who is already married to the wrong fellow, there will be deliverance tonight in the Mighty name of Jesus.
I have told you the story, I am talking from experience, there is a woman, the husband brought and said; my wife is possessed and in those days, we didn’t know what we know now.
We were casting out demons, come out in Jesus name, come out and nothing happened, after sometime we asked the Almighty God what is going on?
The Lord said you are casting out demon from a woman who doesn’t want to be free.
Woman do you want to be free?
She said no, we said why? She said the power I use in controlling my husband you want to take it away?
she said, “he is the one who will drive me to the house of my boyfriend, I will ask him to seat down in the car, I will go upstairs enjoy myself till I am satisfy and when I come back, he will say welcome”.
Everybody here tonight already in bondage you will be free in Jesus name.
It is better to be single than to marry the wrong person, I you don’t believe me ask Abigail in Isaiah 25 v 2-35.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone her tonight, He said those who are laughing at you now, if they know what I am about to do to you, they will stop laughing.
Abigail said with her own mouth, I am married to a fool, Nabal is his name and Nabal means fool, she said he is the son of Belia. She knew it but she was married to him and it was too late.
It is better to be single than to get married to the wrong fellow. One of my friends told me, I want to divorce my wife and marry another. I said don’t do it, he said why not?, I said “ if you do so, you will end up in hell.
He said is that all? I said is that not enough?
He said where have I been since the day I married?
I pray for all of you who are yet to marry, you will not marry the wrong fellow. Because anyone who marries the wrong fellow is in hell from this earth, but if you marry the right person there will be heaven in your home, if you ask me, I know.
One of the things I thank Almighty God more than anything else for apart from my salvation is that He gave me my own wife, that is why there is heaven in my home.
There will be heaven in your home also in Jesus name.
You need knowledge and you need understanding. You need understanding, so that you don’t marry for wealth sake.
Why Proverbs 23 v 5, he said riches can develop wings and fly away, there are people who were rich ones, who are no longer rich. If you marry for wealth, wealth can disappear. Not only that, Proverbs 17 v 1, says a dry morsel with peace thereby is better than house full of slaughter meat with strife.
Therefore when you see a wealthy fellow, swimming in wealth and yet he is single, watch out, because the elder have a saying you see a hen in the market and rush at it, if it laid twenty and hatch twenty, will the owner wants to sell?. That wealthy man who should have married twenty years ago and he is still single, don’t you know there might be something funny?
One lady came to us, ah! Glory be to God I have found the perfect man, God has blessed him, he is very wealthy, I said how old?
Well not very old, but ehn… Just middle age, has he never marry ? Well I think he had married before but the wife died so he is free to marry again.
Something in us says press further. How many wives has he had before?
“I didn’t ask”,
Go and find out; He had been married five times and they all died and you want to be number six to go?
I pray for you once again all of you my sons and daughters, you will not enter into the wrong house.
Don’t marry the jobless; don’t marry those emergency contractors, whose office is in their suit case.
All those who say; they are in forwarding and back warding, Be sure they have a job. Some of them are just looking for a woman who will be feeding them.
The bible say, who will not work should not eat, not even talk of marrying. If they don’t work, they will not eat.
You go to work and they sit down at home watching CNN and then you bring your salary and they begin to consume it.
Wait till God gives you the right fellow. The bible says in Proverbs 18 v 9 he said the slothful is the brother to a great waster. You are paying your tithe; there is no reason why a destroyer should destroy you.
Don’t marry the jobless; don’t say I must marry at all cost. No, no, no you must wait for the right person. You need wisdom, love may be blind it is marriage that will open its eye, but wisdom will keep its eye opened all the time.
The bible say in Proverbs 4 v 5 – 9, he said wisdom is the principal thing, with all your getting’s get understanding. Proverbs 14 v 1 says a wise woman built her house but a foolish woman tears it down with her hands. When you marry, your marriage will stay in Jesus name. But you need the wisdom of God
Ecclesiastes 7 v 12 says wisdom is a defense. It is something that will defend you from everything that the enemy wants to throw at your marriage.
Thank you my father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said those who are trying to choke you shall be choked. Amen.
You need wisdom after you get married because it is one thing to get married; it is another thing to remain married. It is better when you are writing your C.V, you write single than to write divorced.
The way is open, you are going to marry in the Mighty name of Jesus, you will marry the right fellow but after you are married, you need wisdom. I will give you just one more example and then we round up.
I was twenty five years old when I got married and my wife was younger than I. and so people were coming to our home, they will look at us, in those days, if a man marries at twenty five, he marries early.
They will look at us and say young husband, young wife, we hope you won’t quarrel, young wife, young husband eh! We hope you won’t quarrel?
After some time I called my wife, I said dear it looks as if this people are expecting us to quarrel, I said let us disappoint them. I said let us reach an agreement that whenever I am angry, you keep quiet, when you are angry, I will keep quiet. Glory be to God we began to practice that.
Whenever I was angry she will keep quiet and when she is angry because as a man keeping quiet is not very easy or a man, whenever she get angry, I will get out of the house, at least I don’t hear what she is saying I won’t be angry at her. And it continued like that.
Then one day, Satan wants to trap us. We were traveling from Ilesha to Lagos. I was driving and she was sitting in the passenger sit.
Just the two of us and she was offended. And I was really, really guilty and so she was giving it to me and I was driving.
There is no where I can run to, when I couldn’t bear it any longer, rather than reply, I packed the car, got out of the car and began to walk back towards Ilesha.
I walked till I got to a village, bought a pawpaw there eat half and return with the remaining half, at that time she didn’t know how to drive, so she thought I had abandoned her.
When she saw me coming she was relieved, so I entered the car I gave her the half pawpaw and that was the end of the problem.
We have been married forty years now nobody ever settled a quarrel for the two of us, Nobody; because God gave us wisdom.
You need wisdom to build your house, you need understanding to establish it, and you need knowledge to fill your house with treasures.
Those of you who are married, you men will look at your wife and say useless fellow, if she is useless, you chose her, and it means your decision was a useless decision. It means you own head is not correct
And you woman; who has no respect for your husband, and call your husband a useless man. He is your head and if you say your head is useless, you know who you are. Let the brothers shout halleluiah.
I pray that from tonight in every home there will be peace, there will be harmony. There will be joy, don’t forget the elders have a saying that it is the owner of a plate who will say it is a broken plate and then they will help you gather dust. If you hour your husband, everybody will honour him, if you honor your wife, everybody will honour her.
And whenever you see anyone who is married, who is dishonoring his/her mate, that fellow is unreliable, don’t rely on such a fellow, and don’t give him a job.
When they were going to send a man to the moon for the first time, one of the conditions was that he must have been married and have at least two children, they believe after that he must have been matured.
He will be responsible, he can be trusted to go to the moon and come back. Those of you who are already married, whatever may be the problem in your home, God Almighty will help you to solve them.
Let me remind you one more time, any home that is going to know peace, you must let Jesus reign supreme. In every home, you must pray before you sleep. That is one thing that is helping my marriage tremendously.
The two of you can’t pray together, if you are quarreling and so even if we are quarreling, we must settle before we sleep, because before we sleep, we will pray and we can’t pray if there is a quarrel and so we will have to settle the quarrel before we pray, before we sleep. The same will began to happen in your home in Jesus name.
In conclusion, Psalm 27 v1…
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here, He simply says the heart that use to know ceaseless sorrow will soon begin to know ceaseless joy. Ah! Amen Lord.
The Lord said there is someone her tonight, he says soon be fill with ceaseless joy that you will be telling God I this is a dream, I don’t want to wake up.
Psalm 127 v1 says except the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain that build it.
That is why you need to commit your way and time to God; David said my times are in your hands oh! God, My time, my tutor, my marriage are in your hands oh Lord, that is why those of you who are not yet born again, those of you, who have not yet surrender your lie to Jesus, don’t take one step further before surrendering to Jesus.
If you are here tonight and you are not yet sure of your salvation, come and give your life to Jesus. He is the Alpha and the Omega. He is the one who can take care of your tomorrow.
Come and surrender to Jesus now. He is the one who knows the right person for you to marry. He is the one who can guide you. Come and surrender your lie to Jesus, begin to come now.
My Father and my Lord I want to say thank you, thank you for your word, thank you for these people who have come out tonight. You promise Lord that whoever will come unto you, you will in no wise cast out, they have come to you now Father, receive them in Jesus name, save their soul in Jesus name.
Everything they have ever done wrong, wipe them clean with the blood of Jesus. Write their names in the book of life and from now on whenever they call on you, please answer them and whatever maybe their individual problems, solve today in the Mighty name of Jesus and let them serve you till the end. And in Jesus Might name we have prayed amen, praise the Lord Halleluiah.
I want us to pray for just few minutes and I want you to pray from your heart. Almost every one of us has someone in our family, who should be married by now, who is not yet married. If you are single, you want to cry to God that you will not marry the wrong fellow, if you are a parent and you have children, you want to cry to God, that your children will not marry the wrong fellow.
If you are not even a parent yet and you have a brother or a sister who is not yet married, you want to cry to God that they will not marry the wrong fellow. So shall we stand and raise our voice to the Almighty God and say Father please because of tonight, don’t let any of my children marry the wrong fellow. Please open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God. Cry to the Almighty Go! Please my Father and my God, don’t let me marry the wrong fellow.
Pastor E. A. Adeboye
DEWS OF HEAVEN
6th of July, 2007
Halleluiah well let somebody shout halleluiah, I know for sure that there is some one here tonight who will never know poverty again, now if you are the one let me hear you shout halleluiah. I was sharing with the pastors in our prayer room, that one of the secrets of David, why God bless him so mightily, is because he discovers that the one who blesses God at all times, will be blessed by God at all time. That is why he said I willbless the Lord at all time, his praise shall continually be in my mouth, but then he goes a step further, he said I don’t want to be the only one who will be blessed, I don’t want to be the only one who will prospers, I want everybody to be prosperous so he said: Magnify the Lord with me let us praise His name together,(singing)
He said let us praise his name together. You see when one person prospers and the others are not, all the others will not allow him to enjoy his wealth. So tell your neighbor, I want you to prosper too, so that I can enjoy my prosperity, therefore magnify the Lord with me. Let us praise his name together, and then go ahead and praise the Almighty God as you have never done before.
Praise his name as you have done before, praise him with me so that we can prosper together, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Say father fill the second half of this year with miracles signs and wonder for me. Open your mouth and called on me, God of miracle, fill the second half of this year with miracles, signs, wonder, testimonies, prosperity, joy, victories, all kind of blessings. Fill the second half with signs and wonders in my life, miracle, joy, open doors. Mighty, mighty testimonies, all kind of blessing Lord, in Jesus Might name we have prayed.

Father I want to thank you for your children born in the month of July, these people that are born in the month of perfection, perfect everything corning them in Jesus name, make their joy perfect, make their health perfect, make their prosperity perfect, make their home perfect make their business perfect, spiritually make them perfect, whatever they touch let it prosper. All that their heart desire, release to them perfectly. In their New Year visit the mightily, and let them serve you till the end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. (Amen)
Let somebody shout halleluiah! Several years ago, when I just bought my second hand car, it was the first car I ever bought, something happened, somebody among the lecturer, shook my hand and greeted me. He said how is your car doing, suddenly I realized that is a new greeting, they never greeted me like that before. Suddenly I discover I have joined the category of a car owner. Tell your neighbor very soon they will ask you how is your jet doing, to some of you that may sound impossible but God will surprise you, so shall it be in Jesus name, some people say I don’t preached about prosperity that I only preached holiness, well that is true because if you live holy, you will prosper automatically. But once in a while like this we have a special Holy Ghost service designed specially for prosperity. I will want to advise you tonight that you hearken diligently to what I am about to say, I have said it before, I have said it all over the world; I was poor and poverty is not good, am on my way to becoming rich and I like what I am already feeling. Is there already tired of poverty, let me see your hand; you will never be poor again. But please listen carefully. I preach a Sermon years ago when we first had the Holy Ghost service of prosperity, many of you are not here then, there was something I said then that I want to repeat tonight. I visited a friend of mine and the wife prepared food for me, the meat I couldn’t cut with my teeth, the vegetable was on one side the oil was on one side, everything was on one side, after I finished, I just manage to eat the little I can.
The wife asked daddy how is the food?, I said wonderful, she said daddy you are my daddy tell me the truth, if my food is wonderful how come my husband is not coming home to eat, I said you are the one who asked me, I have already said wonderful, after all I am only spending one night. she said please tell me, I said ok since you asked and particularly since you marriage is at stake; this soup is not good, the pepper is too much, the salt is not enough the vegetable is almost raw, the soup is on one side, the vegetable on another side. You check the plate how many meat did you see missing. She said can you help me?
All of you who want God to help you, lift your voice to him and say God help me! So I said okay, do it this way, don’t throw the meat anyhow into your soup, and in all your cooking, add fish, so if the meat is too tough at least the fish will be. Then I say check what your husband likes not want you want, anyway to cut a long story short, things changed drastically.
There are many of us, if they asked you how is things you will say praise the Lord, all is well. And yet we are struggling to pay house rent. Things will change tonight; do you want me to tell you the whole truth? Do you want to hear nothing but the truth? Let me hear you shout amen loud and clear.
Thank God for my son who preached the first sermon, he has already prepared the ground. Gen27 v 26 – 29And his father Isaac said, unto him ,come near now and kiss me my son, and he came near and kiss him and he smelled the smell of his raiment and he kissed him and blessed him saying the garment of my son is as the field that the Lord has blessed. Therefore God give you of the dew of heaven , of the fatness of the earth and plenty of corn and wine, let people serve thee, let nations bow unto thee, be Lord over thy brethren and let thy mother sons bow down to thee, curseth be anyone that curseth you, blessed is those that bless you.
What is a blessing? A blessing is a summon to all the forces in heaven, on earth and underneath the earth to assist somebody so that he can succeed. When a blessing is pronounced on somebody, the angel in heaven, the angel on assignment on earth hear, the ground on which we are walking they hear,, and they know that that pronouncement is a summon to them that that this particular fellow you most assist to succeed. That is why you see that someone who is blessed that he his selling water, he maybe richer than somebody selling cars; because there is a blessing behind him.
The blessed succeeds in all that he attempt in the world. I pray tonight that every one of you who will hearken to the word of God, you will be blessed (amen).Now a dad’s blessing can determine a child’s future. In Gen. 49 v1when Jacob was about to die in Egypt, he summon all his children, he said come, come, come, let me tell you what will happen to you in future; and he began to bless some, he began to curse some. He turned to Ruben and he said your brethren shall praise the, he turned to Judah; even though you are my first born, you are not going to be anything. A blessing from your father is an extremely powerful thing.
In Gen.27 v 37, Isaac said to Esau, he said I have already make Jacob your Lord, because when I was blessing I said be Lord over your mother children. So a blessing is a very powerful thing, even if it was just a residual blessing it is still very powerful. For example, in Gen. 27 v 38 – 40 after Esau kept on pressing, daddy don’t you have one blessing left? And the father said I give you the residual one. He gave Esau the residual blessing. But when you get to Gen. 32 v 3 – 6 the man who got the residual blessing had four hundred body guards, he prospered under the residual blessing so much that he needed 400 bodyguards to go with him wherever he goes, and you can then imagine the one who got the original blessing. Your father’s blessing is irreversible even by your father, if he has blessed you, you are blessed.
In Gen 27 v 33 when Esau came, he said what happened father, Isaac said I have already blessed Jacob and he said he shall be blessed. He came in by subtlety to get the blessing, but he has already gotten it there is nothing anybody can do. There is somebody here today; nobody will be able to reverse your blessing.
So a blessing is a very precious thing, it is something that is highly desirable. That is why Esau cried, father me my father, even me, I know somebody have come and taken the major blessing, but still bless me. That is why I am surprise when some people come to me and I say God bless you and they still say daddy pray for me, I have given you the greatest of all prayers. There is no prayer beyond God bless you. Because when the man of God your spiritual father says God bless you, all the witches and wizard in the world cannot stop you. So I want to say someone here tonight God bless you. Now precious things don’t come cheap. If something is precious, it will not be cheap; if something is cheap you can be sure it is not precious. There are certain things in Yoruba land that if you lose, you don’t get sorrowful over them. It is because they are cheap. Blessing are precious, they don’t come cheap. That is why if you read Gen. 27 v1-4, that is why Isaac said to Esau, go into the bush, get a good bush meat, prepared the kind of meal that is my favorite, bring it to me, let me eat. When I am happy, then my soul will bless you. Blessings do not come cheap. There are some blessings that are greetings; when your brother sees you and say God bless you; he is just greeting you. The kind of blessings that your father will pronounce on you on his death bed is different from the one on ordinary days. When you have made your father happy, (and I will come to that a little later), when you have made your pastor happy, when you have made your spiritual father happy, and he says God bless you from the bottom of his heart then you’ve got it made.
Not too long ago, I went to visit one of my children and he took care of me in a manner that was beyond description. At the end when I was about to leave. I heard myself saying, I didn’t plan it, I said son, you have satisfied me completely, my God will satisfy you completely. The way he said the “amen” was what brought me to myself and I knew it wasn’t me speaking; it was the one inside of me. Precious thing don’t come cheap, (we’ll talk more about that later). when we talk about your fathers blessing, that is a great blessing, but the blessing of your spiritual father is greater than your physical father, just as the blessing of the general overseer is far, far more greater than the blessing of your pastor, but the greatest of all blessings; is the blessing from God himself,Prov.10 v 22, he said the blessing of the Lord maketh rich and add no sorrow. It is the blessing of the Lord that overflow. Ps.23 v 5, he said thou anoint my cup with oil and my cup runeth over and (those of you who couldn’t come you should get that tape), when the blessings come from God, they are always more than you can handle.
When he says bring all the tithe into my house, he said I will open the windows of heaven that there will not be enough room to take it. He said when you honour me with your first fruit; he said your ban will burst. when he said thank you to Peter, his boat was sinking with fish, when the blessing is from the Lord, when your obedience is complete, he will bless you to extent that you will say lord this is too much and I have good news for somebody here tonight, before the end of this year, you will stand here and testify. I know somebody who will say God please can you slow the thing down a little bit, so that I can handle the one that you have already done; when you are asking for on contract and you got ten, when you knock at one door and twelve opened. You will say Lord thank you, but can we do it gentle. How many of you want that kind of blessing? Say Lord my boat is ready, send down boat sinking blessing, so shall it be in Jesus name.
Now let’s look at the blessing of Isaac upon Jacob one by one, he said God give thee of the dew of heaven.James1v17 tells us that heaven is the source of all blessing. He said every good and perfect gift come from above. Heaven is the source of all blessing, heaven has windows. Mal.3v10, where God said if you bring all the tithes into my house, test me thereby if I will not open the windows of heaven and there will not be enough room to receive the blessing thereby . Heaven has windows, when the windows are opened, showers of blessings can be poured but the windows can be shut, and when the windows are shut, then there will be no rain, there will be no dew.
God said in 2chroniicle7 v13 he said if I shut the heaven so that there is no rain. Anytime God shut the heaven, then there will be no rain, in 2king17v1, Elijah said as the Lord God of Israel liveth which I stand, he said there will be now dew or rain except at my word. When the windows are shut and there is no rain, then rivers begin to dry up. some of you know what I am talking about, you use to swim in rivers but then the windows were shut and there was no more rain and the river begin to dry up. I pray today that every river that has dried up will receive new rain today in the mighty name of Jesus. Because when the windows of heaven are shut and there is no rain, there are no showers of blessings and rivers dry up there will be a famine. It is when the rain have stopped that people begin to borrow, it is because the rain didn’t fall when it suppose to fall. That’s when people began into debt, ii pray for you tonight, that after this night, you will never borrow again.
Now Amos 4 v 7 says something very strange, he said God can open the window on some people and it will not rain on another, so that while it rained in one part of the city, it will leave the other part of the city. In order words while some people are crying the city is hard nothing is moving, no business. Some people will be saying glory be to God things are god. I pray for you today when unbelievers are saying things are hard you will say; my God is more than enough. Now the shutting of heaven or the closing of heaven is either in the hand of God who has the keys of David, or in the hands of his prophet who has his delegated authority. Elijah said I stand before the living God; I use his authority to decree that the heaven be shut over you Ahab. Several people were dying of hunger but the widow of Zarephath was getting fatter and fatter. I stand today as the representative of the Most high God, beginning from now, there will be showers of blessing of God over you. So when his father said; may God give you of the dew of heaven, he his saying may God always give you rain in its season, in Deut. 28 v12…
Thank you father, now there is a lot of miracle already happening but there is this particular one I think you should know, The Lord said you have been passing through the rivers of fire, the Lord said you are coming out of it tonight.
In Deut. 28 v12, he said the heaven will give you rain in its season as a result of which you will begin to lend to nations. Whether you believe it or not, there is somebody here tonight, before nations can balance their budget, they will contact you (amen).
You know I have just returned from a journey. Then one young girl was thrown into the prison and the whole press was following her about, CNN, everybody. I said what’s so special about this girl how many girls are thrown to prison every day. They said she is the only daughter of the owner of the Hilton hotels in the whole world. Now I understand! There is somebody here, they are not going to throw you into the prison but in every city of the world, when they get there, they will see your mark there. So when he said God give you of the dew of rain, it means you will never lack rain, it means you will never know dryness again. I told you of someone who said; where God has brought me, I can’t even stop money from coming in. he said even if I don’t do any other work, money will continue to come in, I said how have you done it? He said I have so many houses; the tenant have to pay rent, whether they like it or not, he said I can’t stop money from coming in. you see when the windows of heaven is open over you, you cannot stop rain from falling. There is somebody here before this year is over, God will bring you to a place where you will not be able to stop blessing from coming. The dew also stand for anointing if you read Ps.133 v 1 – 3 he says that anointing is like dew of Amon, so if he said God will give you the dew of heaven, it means God will give you anointing and the implications of that we could even spend the whole night, talking about it.
For example we know that anointing destroy yoke and if God give you anointing, it means you will never be permanently bound. in other words, if anybody tries to bound you; the anointing of God upon your life will continue to break the, the anointing can as a fire, you remember the time they bound Samson, the anointing came and burnt the ropes, You will remember David said in Paslm23v5, he said thou prepares table before me in the presence of my enemies, thou anoint my head with oil my cups runeths over. Now the implication of that is this, when the dews of heaven began to pour on you, you will begin to prosper and enemies will continue to multiply. Nobody bothers someone who has a second hand bicycle, who has only one shirt, one trouser, when he sleeps, he doesn’t have to lock the doors, what are they going to steal?, the shirts or the trouser? But when people see you and they see that even the dress on you alone is enough to buy a house, you better make sure that your house is well guarded. God is saying here, with the dew of heaven, if it is the dew of heaven that is bringing the prosperity, no matter how many the enemies, you will enjoy in their presence they won’t even think of harming you, he will paralyze their brain.
There is somebody here up to this time who is afraid of prosperity, if I prosper what about the problems, I have good news for you, you will prosper and there will be nothing that the enemies can do about it. Now he said not only is he asking God, that God give Him of the dews of heaven, he said and God should give you of the fatness of the earth. Dew of heaven, fatness of earth because if the rain fall on stony ground, God said he will not just open the windows of heaven, I will take care of the earth also.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here they say you are down and out he said I should tell you, you will be a champion again.
Matt.13 v 3-8, the bible tell of the story of the shower, he said some of the seed fall by the way side, birds didn’t even allow the rain to fall before they eat it up, some fell on the stony ground. Some fell among thorns, thorns choke them, and some fell among good soil, beginning from now, in every facet of your life you will be described as good soil. Now those described as good soil who have the fatness of the earth, they are the one who flourish,Ps. 92v12-14, talks about those who are planted in the house of the Lord, flourishing like cedars in Lebanon, he said even in old age they will still be bringing forth fruit. Flourishing, he said of the fatness of the earth; that means you will proper so much that you will never have to rack your brain before you spend money again. I have told you of a friend of mine, we travelled together once, we went to buy things and I was searching for things with sales on them, when I checked this one , I will say this price is too much, this one price is still too much, and in his own case; he was just picking the thing, anything he likes , he was just piling it up, I said “you are not even looking at the price”, he said “there is no need”.
There is someone here today beginning from now, anything you want to do; you won’t have to check the price. He said number one, God give you the dew of heaven, so that you don’t lack rain, you don’t lack anointing. God give you of the fatness of the earth, which means you will flourish, which also secondly means whatever you touch you will prosper; because when you plant in the fatness of the earth, your harvest is guarantee, it is a dangerous thing to plant on the wrong soil.
I have told you the story before several years ago when I first began to go to America, because I have learnt of the law of harvest, and I was in need of money, I still need money. So I was sowing in dollar, difficult as it was I was sowing, after about three years, because I was expecting that if I am given somebody should be given me too. Nobody gave me anything even those people I have invited to come, they would come, we will treat them like royalties, when I get back to American and I phone them, they will say hello Enoch!, you are welcome!, that is all. They won’t even invite me to come and eat, so after three years I said Lord, what is happening to my sowing. so that night I had a dream, I saw a big farm, as big as the whole of this auditorium, with yam heaps all over, and in that dream I knew it was my farm, but the yams is not germinating, so I said what is wrong with this yam that it is not germinating?, so I said I will check with one, by the time I went down a little, I find out concrete under, I tried, the second, the third, the fourth and I woke up and God said you have been sowing on concrete ground. Every one of you that have been sowing on concrete ground, beginning from now, God will give you of the fatness of the earth.
Thank you father, The Lord said there is someone, you have been having pains in opening and closing of your hand, he said the pains are gone now.
He said there is someone here, He said someone inferior to you have been chosen to replace you, God Says I will reverse that.
So he said God will give you of the dews of heaven, the fatness of the earth, plenty of corn and wine. In order words he is saying your hunger and thirst will be fully satisfied. The bible says the young lion do suffer hunger and thirst but they that seek the Lord will not lack anything good. When he is talking of hunger, it might not be food alone, even though there might be some people who find it difficult to feed themselves. You will never be in that category again. But there are some beautiful things which some people hunger for but they don’t have. There are those who hunger for righteousness for example, he is saying that which you are hungry for shall be given to you abundantly, that is what corn stands for, your hunger will be satisfied, then what about the wine? He is not talking about alcoholic wine; he is talking about the grape juice. Eccl.10 v19, wine make merry, in other word he is saying, my son you will never know sorrow. You will never know depression. He is also saying, you will constantly have celebrations. Wine make merry; means you will never know sorrow, you will never know depression, you will constantly have celebrations. But then Proverb17 v 22 says a merry hearth doeth good like a medicine. In order words what he his saying here to his son is that you will always be healthy. Prosperity is of no use unless you are healthy.
I have told you the story of a man in Ibadan, who said I have fourteen houses in Ibadan. Heal me and I will give you all the houses, because I told him I am not the healer, Jesus will heal you free of charge. If you get heal and I take all your houses, then I take your sickness along. Of what use is fourteen houses, if you are not healthy? I have good news for somebody here tonight, one sickness will leave you alone, And number two God will prosper you. Number three; you will have abundant food, number four you will have the appetite to eat the food.
I told you of a friend of mine; I went to visit him and it was time for breakfast, he spent thirty minutes deciding on what he will eat; what did I eat yesterday, what did I eat the day before, what type of egg will I eat?, is it to be fried or poached or cooked or warmed? He struggled for thirty minutes, before he could choose what he will eat for breakfast and he is a very, very rich man. When the cook finished with him, he turned to me and said what do you want sir?, I said plenty of bread, plenty of egg, plenty of whatever things you have, just put the thing on the table. It is one thing to have money, it is another thing to enjoy it in the Might name of Jesus Christ, every blessing that God will give you, you will fully enjoy it.
He said I wish above all things that you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers, you will prosper, you will be healthy. And you will enjoy your prosperity and his father went on and said let people serve thee, this is a heavy blessing. In Eccl. 4 v 9 he said that two are better than one. Of what use is prosperity if you don’t have helpers. That is why I never call those people who are working for me, servants, I call them my helper. My driver is not my servant is my helper. When he is driving, I can fall asleep, because I know he is doing his own work correctly. What kind of life will it be; if you have the whole money and you are the one who will still run to the kitchen and cook, you are the one who will sweep the ground. He said let people serve thee. Included in that blessing is that you will have helpers. Your house boy is not your servant, he is your burden bearer, and you better know how you will treat them now, because one of them can be a link to your breakthrough. You know the story of Naaman; it was his house maid that linked him to his breakthrough, if the wife has been mistreating the house maid, the girl will have keep shut. You never can tell the angel living in your house, everybody that is called to help you is meant to be your helper. Look at me thank God, God is blessing and he will bless me more and he will bless you too.
There was a time in the old auditorium, when it is the time for laying on of hands, I am the one who will lay hands on everybody, because we were few then, now can you imagine me laying hands on everybody here?, by next month we will still be here. But now I have helpers, when it is time to lay hands, I seat down and they lay hands, i backed them up, may people help you. (Amen).May people help you means you won’t die before your time. Because if you are the only one doing everything, you will die, and if you die, how will you be able to enjoy the dews of heaven or the fatness of the earth? So when he says may people help you, it means you will have helpers. You will live long; you will be able to enjoy everything you want. Now do you know that a lot of blessings that God wants to give you, he will send it through people, he will send it through people; that is why I said we should pray; from the east send help, from the west send help. From the north send help, from the south send help, you will have testimonies this month in Jesus name.
I told you the story; we were building the first auditorium then, the naira was still very powerful then and one day the carpenter came unto me and said sir, we need two hundred and four naira, that time I had not kobo on me. I said okay when I have the money I will send for you. He didn’t believe that somebody who is building something that big does not have two hundred naira. So he was going and was grumbling; he is the one who will say the work is slow, now we are asking for the money he didn’t want to give. I said God you hear him, up to you. And I feel asleep because I had done vigil all night, I had prayed all night and I fell asleep, when I woke up, there was a man sitting by my door, eating breakfast, I said this man’s problem must be serious, he has blocked my way so I won’t be able to run away. So I said yes! What is your problem, he said sir, I have no problem, and he said I have just collected my house rent. And God said I should take the money to you. So I said Lord, I will go as soon as I finished my breakfast and God said no, no I should go now. So I carried my breakfast. When I got here and I find out that you are sleeping, I said now I can begin to eat my breakfast. He gave me the envelope, and I blessed him and he left. When he left, I opened the envelope and I saw one thousand two hundred naira. So I sent for the carpenter and it was time now for me to do yanga. I said by the way, how much do you say you need? I prophesy to somebody here this night, whoever is holding your miracle; he will not be able to eat his breakfast before bringing it to you. May people serve you.Oh!
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here today, he say I will arrest all forms of decay in your life.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; he said the great potential in you will no longer remain dormant.
I want to say amen to this one, God said there is somebody here tonight, get ready for unexpected miracles.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here today, he said they call you a total failure; I will change you to total success.
So he said let people serve thee and then he went on to say let nations bow down to thee. Why will he pray that kind of prayer, because from his own experience, when a man prosper mightily a whole nation can become envious of him. In Gen. 26 v12-14, when Isaac wax great, when he began to have stalls of servants, when his servants alone are about to occupy a whole village.
The bible says the philistines envied him, now whether you believe it or not, one day is coming when you will testify, because this nation doesn’t know you yet. But a day is coming when they will say ha! Ha! Is he the only one n this country? You turn to the right, you see his something, you turn to the left you see his something, is he the only one in this country? But in his preparing his son for this blessing, he didn’t say one nation will bow down to you, he his saying nations will bow down to you. What is Isaac saying, he is saying to his son, I have prosper, a nation envied but you will prosper more than myself. And instead of the nation’s envying you, they will bow down for you. I said it and it sound like a joke that a nation will seek your advice and help before they balance their budget.
In Isaiah 55 v 5, the word of God says you will call a nation that you know not and nations you do not know will run unto you. Powerful blessings, then I have told you before that I am what I am today and by the grace of God and by the prayers of my mother; she used to pray a prayer for me that I didn’t understand when I was young. Anytime I did anything that made her happy, she will look at me and say, you this boy, you will call one fellow two hundred will answer, I will say amen. But I didn’t know the meaning, but today if I turned to this direction and say pastor come, how many thousands will answer? And I am saying to you today in the Might name of Jesus Christ, when you call one fellow, one thousand will answer. He said let nations bow, let nations bow unto you and then he went on to say be Lord over thy brethren, including those who are born by your mother. Now I Isaac must really be happy because this kind of blessing must be frightening. Be Lord over your brethren that is a serious problem, but then be lord over the children of your mother, that is frighten! What is he saying, he is saying you will always be above only, you will never be beneath.
Now some people may understand that to means that the children of my mother will be small, no that is not what he meant, what he meant was that no matter how great they are, you will still be greater than them. In order words it is in your own interest, if you pray that Lord let all the children of my mother be very great; because the greater they are the greater still you will be. If you say they should be small, and all they have is bicycle, if you have a motorcycle, you are already greater than them, but if they all had a Royce rolls, then you know where you will be.
There is somebody here today for the rest of your life, you will always be above. Somebody said to me the way you relate to other men of God, is different from the way other people relate, I see the way you relate that God will expand their coast, that they should become very great and when you see them prospering you rejoice, why? Other people envy others, I smile you don’t understand; may the Almighty God make them very, very great because the greater they are…Let me put an end on that one.
May all the children of your mother become great in Jesus name, but no matter how great they are, you will be greater than them all in Jesus name. In all area of your life, you will be called the greatest. But then he went further to say curse is anyone that curse thee, that means all your enemies are in problem. Deut. 28 v 27 he says all the enemies that come before you shall be smitten before your face, he didn’t say you will smite them; he says they shall be smitten. That is why if you have this blessing you should pity your enemies. Because if you are the one who is smitten then, there is a limit to which you can smite them, but if it is the Lord who is smitten then ..The one who touched the mountain and it begins to smoke. If he decides to knock your enemy on the head, what will remain of the head? I have good news for you all those who are against you, they are in serious trouble now. In fact God says you will seek them you will not find them. And then he went on, he said blessed be those who bless you, that means your friend are in for a good time, do you know that there some people here tonight, very soon you will be buying cars for your friends. You will be building houses for them. You know the elders use to say, it is the blessing that is not enough that you can’t share. They say if the eyes are full it will begin to drop on the nose. All your friends, because of the blessings that God will bless you with, they will be blessed also.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; the Lord said that stubborn recurrent ailment will not return.
He said there is someone here, he said now that all helpers have forsaken you. He said I will move in.
Oh! Thank you father, the Lord said there someone here tonight, he said you will soon be smiling broadly again.
The Lord said your celebration that was cancelled, shall hold very soon. Oh! Thank you father, amen and amen,
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said very soon, when they want to give an example of outstanding success, they will mention your name.
Halleluiah!, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said I should tell you, you will regain the upper hand.
Oh! Lord, thank you Jesus, daddy says, there is someone here tonight, he said there will be many stars in your family but your star will be the brightest of all.
Let’s continue, those who bless you will be blessed.
In the example of David, when he was in the cave of Adullam in 1Sam. 22 v1-2, the bible said vagabonds gathered themselves to him, those who are in distress, those who had no hope, gathered themselves to him. but because of the anointing on David, they became mighty men. The bible recorded them as mighty men of David, under the unction of the Holy Spirit that is very heavy on me tonight, I want to say to all of you that has gather here tonight; I want to say to all of you that have gather here tonight, because of the anointing of God upon my life, you will become mighty. Put your hands to the Almighty, glory be to God. Now what his is father saying, he is saying in short that you will not only be blessed, you will become a blessing. Halleluiah!
The anointing of God is here tonight, God will answer your prayer tonight, all the prayer that you have prayed that has not been answered before, it will be answered tonight. If you have never have testimonies before, you will have many of them this month. anyone who stand anyone who stand in your way, their sun will set this month(amen) I repeat it again, anyone that is holding on to your blessing will not be able to eat until they release them. When you called one fellow, ten thousand will answer in Jesus name, if you knock at a door, one hundred will be open unto you. Oh! So shall it be, thank you father, glory be to God. So the father was saying you will not only be blessing, but you will become a blessing. There are so many ways that you can be a blessing, by sharing financial blessings. Or by laying hands on the sick so that they can be healed.
Thank you Jesus, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; you will never bow your head in shame again.
Thank you Lord, Daddy sad there is someone here today, daddy said I should give you three words; YOU WILL WIN. Halleluiah!
I think you better say that one, I will win. I want to suggest that to you, write that down, place it where you will see it, anytime that the enemy tries to mess around with you, just look at it and say it is already spoke I WILL WIN. So you can be a blessing to man by giving them material things, by laying hand on the sick, by laying hand on the barren; so that they conceive, casting out demons out of them. And you can become a blessing to God; by becoming one of his treasurers, so that as he blesses you, you are pushing back the blessing back to the church.
Take note of certain things quickly, when God bless you, please don’t forget him, take note of that. It is important! Because, he is going to bless you now. I know he is going to bless you. All my life, all my Christian life, it is only one other time, that I am feeling the way I am feeling tonight, so those of you who are here tonight you are already blessed. so when he blesses you because he will, don’t forget him because he is the one who give you power to get wealth.
Number two, the elders saying the empty mouth does not make a sound, if you want to provoke God for this kind of blessing we are talking about you need to do something special, that will provoke God to say in blessing I will bless you. I want to encourage you tonight, decide I your heart tonight that you are going to do something special for God, we are not talking about normal offering now, something that will provoke God to say “in blessing I will bless you”.
Write it somewhere as a bless to him, a sacrifice you want to give to him, something you can redeem as soon as possible, you don’t have to hand it over to anybody, you can know it within yourself, that this is what I wrote down that I will do for God soonest. If it is money anytime you are redeeming it write at the back of the envelope, seed for blessing and you will be amazed what God will do. I have studied the bible, the seven times that fire came down from the heaven, there was something on the altar, there was a sacrifice that someone place on the altar before fire was sent from heaven to come and pick them up.
Halleluiah, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; those who set the road block will dismantle them.
Thank you father, Daddy says, whatever I say concerning you tonight shall come to pass, so I am saying; it will be well with you, you will go from glory to glory, the richest in the whole world will be among you, those who said you will become nothing will come and borrow for you. Everything you touch from now henceforth will prosper. The tide will turn for the better for you now, those of you will think you are already great, you will become greater, God will put an end to sorrow in your life, you will enjoy divine health for the rest of your life, and so shall it be in Jesus Mighty name.
Anyone who will to give his/her life to Christ should come out now. Before we pray, daddy says what I put in your heart to do, it may seem big to you, and he said do it and I will give you a divine handshake. Stand on your feet, we want to pray, it is one prayer but pray it with all your heart, lift your voice to the Almighty God and say father, I am ready to do your will. Command, your blessing upon my life, go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

Let t somebody shout halleluiah!
Shake hand with one or two people and say good evening God bless you, Good evening God bless you and then you may be seated.
Very quickly let me pray for the children of August, stand on your feet while I pray for you. Father I want to thank you for your children born in the month of august, these your children born in the eight month of the year. These are your children born in the month of restoration. A month of new beginning, in the life of all these your children, do something new in Jesus name.

Let somebody shout halleluiah
We will have to move very fast tonight. On this Friday of the convention, twenty new babies were born, ten boys and ten girls. Bringing the total number of the children, born during this convention thus far to sixty six.
We even had another set of twins; the girls are still leading, thirty four girls, and thirty two boys. Let the girls shout glory, let the boys shout halleluiah.
One of our deaconess came all the way from Philippine came to share a testimony with us, I think we have to listen to the testimony before I preached;
I want to share my testimony to all of you, first to the glory God and secondly to admonish you my brethren. In august 2005, I thought I became pregnant, I went through a lot because of what I thought was pregnancy; I experience serious vomiting, serious heart beat and serious loss of appetite. And I observed that my stomach became bigger and bigger which is not compatible to normal pregnancy, being a doctor myself.
I went for check up and I discover that it was tumor that I have not pregnancy. And I know this is very dangerous.
I called my spiritual father and he prayed for me, I went back for the checkup and we decide to do chemotherapy, but we realized that this will make me lose my hair and if I lose my hair, how will I preach about God, because I myself am a pastor, this will not bring glory to God.
So I called my pastor and my pastor called zonal pastor, which in turn told the general overseer about it, and the general overseer prayed on a handkerchief and sends it to me.
Before then I had undergone the first phase of the chemotherapy, but when I receive the handkerchief, I tied it to myself and I and my husband decide to stop the chemotherapy.
That was how God healed me completely of tumor and I didn’t lose any of my hair. Praise the Lord!
The God who can heal from any distance, it doesn’t matter how far it may be, he will touch somebody here tonight.
Mattew1v23, behold a virgin shall be with a child and shall bring forth a child and they shall his name Emmanuel, which been interpreted God with us, we will pray one more time because today is a new day even in my own life.
I have a father, Almighty father; he is king of kings, Lord of Lord, (singing)
My father and my God, I bow before you today for the new things you want to begin to do in the life of all of these your children beginning from now.
Thank you father, thank you Almighty God, thank you ancient o days, thank you Emmanuel , thank you Holy Spirit, thank you my supporter, thank you my defense, thank you my all in all, glory be to your holy name all. Everything you want to do tonight father, to the glory of your holy name, do it all. Let nothing stand in your way and at the end of it all take all the glory, thank you Daddy, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Emmanuel God with us, occasionally we think God is far away, at time we pray and it might look as if God is not hearing, at times it might look to us as if he is asleep,
I mean Mark4v35-41, When there was a storm in the boat and Jesus was fast asleep, Peter went to him and say father, careth thou that we perish?
Everything is going wrong and you are sleeping, what Peter did not know is that when he appears to be sleeping; he is at work and when he got up, he “spoke a word, peace be still” and immediately everything became calm.
I stand here today as a representative of Emmanuel and I say peace be still.
When you think he is far away, when you think he is not paying attention to you, just a little cry from you. According to Ps.34 v 17 he said the righteous cry and the Lord heard him. And deliver him from all his troubles.
Let me hear somebody cry Emmanuel help me, he will help! He will help you today in Jesus name.
The first time I went on a cruise, that is a journey in a boat, the ship was very big, bigger than Sheraton hotel. And then the storm came and the big ship became like a toy.
the waves will throw the ship into the air and for about ten stories and then drop it and everything was shaking, everybody was shaking, at a stage the captain of ship called us together and say don’t worry; you see there are different categories of storms, the smallest is category one and the biggest is category twelve, he said don’t worry we are only in category ten. He said but all of you go and stay in your rooms.
I got to my room and I cried unto God, and I say daddy what am I going to do? You didn’t promise me that I will become food for fish and he answered,
He will answer somebody here tonight.
He said “my son, when there was a storm and I was in the boat, what did do?” I said they told me you were sleeping,
He said “you climb on your bed and sleep”,
I said “thank you daddy”, I climb on my bed and those who knows me, knows that if I want to sleep it doesn’t take me two minutes.
I slept off, by the time I woke up everything was calm and we had arrived were we were going.
I decree into every one of you tonight, every storm in your life will be still in Jesus name.
Thank you daddy, the Lord asked me tell you straight away that the number of people he will heal tonight, nobody will be able to count.
He asked me to tell someone here tonight, that beginning from tonight your rate of progress shall be doubled.
Thank you daddy, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said in spite the recent happenings in your life, he said “I will yet be glorified in your life”.
When you think he is far away, when you think he is not listening, he is in control. When he is seated, he is in control. In Isaiah 66 v1 he says heaven is my throne; the earth is my footstool, when he seated, he seated in heaven and his leg is in the earth. When he seated he is controlling heaven and he is controlling the earth.
When he is seated, he can open the windows of heaven because that is where he is seated and pour in a blessing on somebody who is on the earth.
That’s why I pity those of you who are not paying your tithe; you don’t know what you are missing.
The key to heaven is in the hand of Emmanuel, he has given the condition under which he will open it.
And when he opens no man can shut, when he shut no man can open.
I pray tonight, all of you who have been faithful in the payment of your tithe that the heaven will open towards you tonight. All of you who has been rubbing God, I pray you will repent tonight.
A man came to the camp around two or 3am bang on our doors, he said he had an emergency, what is the emergency? He said “I worked for the government and they owe me a lot of money”,
He said “four years”
If the problem has been around for four years, can’t you wait until tomorrow morning? Why do you have to come and wake us up for 3am?
He said “I know God doesn’t sleep”,
I said if “he doesn’t sleep we sleep”
He said “pray, pray now”.
And we prayed, that was Friday stroke Saturday morning.
On Monday the government sent for him and paid him what they have owed him for four years.
There is somebody here today, the miracle you have believed God for, for a very long time, you will receive it today in Jesus name.
Part of the healing that is going on;
The Lord said there is someone here he said inside your heart is as cold as if there is a freezer there, he said that is settled now.
The Lord said there is someone here who has been suffering serious pain because of a slip hip; he said he has put everything back to position.
The Lord said there is someone here today, he said he has block the way to your grave, in order words those who are expecting you to die, will wait for a very long time.
Daddy says there is someone here today, he says the door you have been knocking on for a very long time, will be open unto you this night.
When you think he is sleeping he is control. When he is sitting down he is in control. And when he stands up, then things begin to happen.
Ps. 68 v1-3 he said let God arise and his enemies be scattered, every enemy that follow you here today; from your father’s house, from your mother’s house, from the husband house, from your place of work, they will scatter in Jesus name.
When he stands up, red sea will part. When he stands up the wall of Jericho will fall.
Thank you daddy; thank you my Lord, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said I have captured your captors.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said the sound of music will fill your home again.
When I was studying the book of Joshua 6 particularly verse 20, you know that has to do with the fall of Jericho. And I was wondering why the people shouted and the wall fell.
Daddy says “when you praise a man, if you really praise him the way, he supposed to be praised, his head begin to rise up, his head begin to swell”.
“If you praise him sufficiently, he will stand up without thinking”, he said that was what happened in Jericho”, he said “they shouted a praise so loud that I got up”, and “when I stand, the earth trembles”.
Let me hear someone shout a really big halleluiah. Amen, thank you Jesus. I decree tonight, all of you who shouted that halleluiah; God will stand up for you.
Now when he is on the move people can come even from behind and snatched a miracle, in Mark 5 v 25-34.
Thank you father…
In Mark 5 v 25-34, the woman with the issue of blood, saw Jesus passing by and came from behind.
Touched the helm of his garment and snatched a miracle.
When God is moving, someone like Bartimeus can get a miracle that changed his life forever.
I decree tonight that every one of you here present before you go home a miracle that will change your life forever will be giving unto you.
Now some of you have heard this testimony, some years ago.
I was travelling from here to my town, a s I was driving through the city of Ife, I saw one of my daughter standing by her car,; I thought the car had a problem, because I saw sorrow on her face .
I saw almost a mixture of fear and anxiety on her face, so I stopped and I went to her. I have almost reached before she even knew I was coming,
What is the problem why are you so down cast?
She said the baby In her womb; (because she is pregnant), she said the baby is dead and the doctor said they have to evacuate.
Some miracles are happening over there, Glory be to God, don’t worry it will go round. Begin to check your problems now; you will go home with your miracles.
So she said the doctor said were going to evacuate the pregnancy and the pregnancy was about seven month old then,
I said lets pray, I laid my hand on the stomach and I commanded the baby to come back alive, to cut a long story short that baby that was dead in the womb has now got his master degree.
Under the anointing of Emmanuel I decree every good thing in your life that the enemies have killed shall come back alive.
Thank you daddy, God says there is someone here tonight; he said out of your presence ashes, I will build a mansion.
Halleluiah, Daddy says, he said there is someone her tonight, he said those who seek your hurt shall fall for your sake.
Amen and amen, halleluiah.
This next one is for me no doubt about that, my daddy says I have commanded the roads to open unto you.
Halleluiah, Let somebody shout halleluiah.
So when you think he is sleeping, he is in control. When he is sitting down, he is in control. When he stands up he is control, when he is moving, he is in control, when he is visiting he is in control.
In Act 16v 25-26, Paul and Silas were in prison and then they began to sing and to praise God. God stood up and decide to pay them a visit, by the time he arrived; there was an earthquake, because when he got up, because the earth is the footstool, the earth shook a little.
When he began to move the earth began to shook, he took the second step, the earth shook, by the time he arrived at the prison house, the shaking has become a violent earth quake.
Prison doors were forced open and every yoke was opened. Somebody is coming out of prisons today. The yoke binding you will all be consume today. Amen,
Now listen carefully;
The Lord said there is someone here that you used part of a dead child to make charm and now forces of darkness is closing in on you.
You see them in your sleep, you feel their presence during the day time, and daddy says he will want to set you free tonight, but you have to step out.
The Lord said there is some here, daddy says someone offended you and you arranged with someone that that fellow will die barren. Now the Lord said from the day you made that arrangement, everything you touched had failed, and the one that you say will die barren will conceive this month. And what you begin to touch from now, will begin to prosper,
The Lord asked you to step forward for deliverance.
The Lord said there is someone here, he said you drank human blood at an initiation ceremony and now AID is about to blossom in your body. Daddy says I will heal you tonight, if you come forward.
If you are in any of these three categories you have to come and come very quickly because my time is gone, the three of you will come together so we won’t know which is which.
I wasn’t there went it happened, but God is, and he wants to set you free, so come quickly, as you come begin to cry to him have mercy Lord have mercy, just have mercy on me. Thank you father, In Jesus almighty name we have prayed. Father I thank you because your mercy endures forever, who can understand how merciful you are. Accept out thanks in Jesus mighty name we prayed. Father I thank you, who can understand how merciful you are? Accept our thanks in Jesus name.
I plead the blood over all these your children, the blood of Jesus that cleanses from all sins, let it wipe away all their sins in Jesus name, every evil that they have done forgive and forget in the mighty name of Jesus.
The repercussion of the evil they have done cancel it tonight in Jesus name. Set them free; set them completely free in the name of Jesus. Lord give them a new beginning, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
That is all, congratulation, you can begin to go back to your seat, it is as simple as that, thank God you obeyed. I believe you are free now.
When God is visiting, prison doors are opened, yokes are destroyed, and prisoners are set free.
Some years ago, I was a visiting a town and I decided to pay a friend of mine a visit.
And his wife was carrying a baby at her back and they say this child will not allow anybody to carry her except the mother, and I greeted them and I was about to go and this child began to cry, she began to stretch out of the back of her mother, stretching towards me to carry her.
when I saw the child was about to fall from the back of the mother I carried took the child and the child held on to me tightly, and I prayed for her until finally the child relaxed and I gave her back to her mother.
A couple of months later the mother began to confess and said “that was the day she had decided to kill the child”. The child saw death coming, she saw the representative of God coming and stretched out and got her deliverance.
I decree tonight, every plan of the enemies concerning you shall be destroyed tonight.
So when you think he is sleeping, he is in control. When he is sitting down he is in control. When he stands up, he is in control, when he is walking he is in control.
When he is visiting he is in control, when he abides he is I control and now when he abides he is in control, then things changed dramatically.
EMMANUEL means God abiding with us in 2 Sam. 6 v10-11 the Ark of the Covenant was in the house of Obed Edom for just three months.
And God prospered him mightily, so mightily that the whole nation took note and they went and reported him to the king; this man was a poor man before you took the ark of covenant to his house, now he has become the richest man in the country
David said if that is the case, I will go and get my ark out of his house.
There is someone here tonight; because of this convention EMMANUEL God will prosper you so much that the whole nation will know.
Halleluiah, The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said you have suit cases filled with money that you stole, now fortunately for you he didn’t ask me to tell you to step out, but that you should write for an appointment and you should come and see us privately and we can counsel you on what to do. Because he asked me to tell you that if you don’t restitute about this money you have stolen, you will not see the New Year.
Thank you Lord. Halleluiah, the Lord asked me to tell you a story and of course as a result of the story the Lord asked me to prophesy on somebody.
The first time I stayed in London. I was on my way to Canada, Nigerian Airways was to take me to London, From London, I was to cross over to British airways.
Nigerian airways took off late, by the time I arrived in London, the British airways had left, so they put me in an hotel, gave me ticket to eat, when it was time to eat and I came down to the dining section, I saw two restaurants, one on the right, one on the left. I didn’t know which is which?
So I just said well when I got to heaven I will be on the right side and so I sat down, and the food was fantastic.
I eat in the afternoon; I eat there in the night, in the morning before I went to board my plane I eat there again.
Then it was time to go. They now asked for my ticket, so I gave them the ticket.
And they said what! This is ticket of economy class!
You are supposed to be eating there. This section is for first class people, it is already too late, I have eaten.
The Lord asked me to tell someone here tonight, the miracle that you did not qualify for I will give it to you.
Thank you Lord, the Lord said there is someone here, he said every year there have been sorrow in your family, the Lord asked me to tell you “No more.”
Daddy says there is someone here; he said they say your sun has set, he said I will cause it to rise again. Amen and amen.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said when vessel of honour gathered together, they will say you are a special vessel unto honour.
Halleluiah, daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said I should tell you your own season of joy has just started.
I want to conclude but daddy is speaking and when he is speaking who else can speak. Particularly when he is talking to me, because this next one is for me again.
He said there is someone here tonight; he said I will replace your river with an ocean, amen…
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; he said very soon your song will be I have recovered all.
Thank you father!
So Emanuel means God with us, God abiding with us, when you think he is sleeping, he is in control. When he is sitting, he is control. When he stands he is control. When he is moving he is in control, when he arrives he is in control, when he seats down and he said I am not going anymore then miracles galore.
So Emmanuel guarantees unlimited prosperity. David said in Ps. 26 v 6 he said surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.
Why? Because I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever, in order words David is saying as long as me and Emmanuel are dwelling together, the only thing, the only report that anybody can hear about me will be report of goodness, reports of mercy, the report of overflowing anointing, the reports of table set before me in the presence of my enemies.
The report that even though I work thorough the valley of shadow of death I have nothing to fear.
I decree tonight, because of Emmanuel for the rest of your life goodness, mercy, joy, victory, progress, promotion, prosperity; abundance shall follow you all the days of your life.
But there is another side to the coin, what happens when he departs? If he used to be with you and suddenly he says I am going, then trouble starts.
If he has been staying with you and goodness and mercy and victory have been flowing. And then you do something that annoys him and he says I am going then you know you are in soup.
Because it is better that you have not tasted him, it is better that he has not come in, than for him to have been in and then go out. Because if he steps out, if lights go out, what will take the place? Darkness!
In 1Sam.16 v14, when the spirit of God left King Saul, the bible say an evil spirit from the Lord began to torment him. When Emmanuel was with Samson, who is called enemies?
With the jaw bone of an ass, he killed thousands of them. They said they shut the gate against him, he uprooted the gate. The lion came he turn the thing into two.
But when Emmanuel left…
Enemies took over, they plucked out his eyes, champion became somebody who was grinding corn in the house of the enemies.
I want you to stand on your feet now and cry to God, whatever I will do, that will cause you to leave me alone, please don’t let me do it again, don’t let me do it again. whatever I will do that will cause you to say bye, bye to me, my Lord and my savior, don’t let me do it again. Don’t let me do it again….
and whatever I have already done that want you to say you are leaving, forgive me, I will change my ways, I will begin to obey you now completely, I will never disobey again, I will obey you quickly… I will do your will.
Halleluiah! Thank you Jesus, Blessed be your holy name. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
You are going to pray one more prayer, lift you voice to the Almighty God and say father, don’t pass me by tonight. Emmanuel don’t pass me by tonight, I know you are here , I know you are visiting, don’t pass me by tonight, you have already demonstrated that you are here, don’t pass me by Lord, when you are performing miracles in the lives of other people don’t pass me by… Thank you Jesus….. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
And then you will lift your voice to him and say father, don’t just visit tonight Lord, stay with me forever, now go ahead and talk to the almighty God, stay with me forever daddy. Thank you Jesus, glory be to God, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed,
He will grant your request in Jesus name. He will never depart from you I Jesus name. And what you to do that he will cause him to leave you; you will never do it again, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed. You can be seated.
Now there is something my daddy asked me to do tonight; glory be to God. When my father in the Lord left this world, he gave me two things, I am not going to tell you the second, but you will see one of them tonight.
He gave me a rod, he told me to keep it and that rod has not come into the open, since he gave me more than thirty years ago. God said I should bring it out tonight, and he said it will be for two reasons; reason number one, he said the anointing I receive on the day I got that rod, he said he want to share some of it with you tonight. Am not surprise that this anointing came overwhelmingly tonight, he said as soon as you see it, release your faith and part of it will come to you.
He said number two, he said as Moses lifted up the rod, to divide the red sea, I am to lift the rod at a particular point in time and you will pray and every red sea blocking your way to your promise land will be parted tonight. So settle down and pay attention.
Now I want you to stand on your feet, if you are not already standing and command every red sea to part of reaching the promising land to part in the Mighty name of Jesus., go ahead talk to the Almighty God, and say every read sea blocking my way, to my promise land, I decree that you part now….
Thank you Jesus, glory be to God and It is done in Jesus Mighty name.
Go ahead and put your hands together to the Almighty God, give him all honour, give him all glory, give him all adoration, praise him praise him he is worthy, common put your hands together to the Almighty God. Go ahead and shake hand with your neighbor and said thank God I am here today. Oh thank you my father, blessed be your holy name. Amen
well I have done what he asked me to do, and am sure he will do what he alone can do, this is one convention that you will never forget for the rest of your life amen
I think the next thing to do now is to thank God,
Halleluiah, amen, halleluiah amen, halleluiah amen…

Let somebody shout another halleluiah!
Tonight we want to talk about total recovery, there is hardly anybody here who has not lost one thing or the other, some of us are not as healthy as we used to be, some of us can no longer see as clearly as we use to see, some are not as rich as they use to be, some of us are no longer hot for the Lord as we use to be.
But as the Lord lives, before the sunrises, everything you have lost you will recover. Joel 2 v 25 – 28, the Almighty God is speaking to somebody particularly tonight, I know He is talking to me but I know He is also talking to someone and He is says I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten. The cankerworm and the caterpillar and the palmerworm; my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty and be satisfied. And praise the name of the Lord your God that has dealt wondrously with you. and my peoples shall never be ashamed and ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel and I am the Lord you God and no one else and my peoples shall never be afraid and it shall come to pass after all that I shall pour my spirit out among flesh and your sons and your daughter and your sons shall prophesy and your old men shall dream dreams and your young men shall see vision.
Lift your hand to the Almighty and say Father I thank you that I will never be ashamed.
When we talk about recovery, it implies that you have something, you lost and then you got it back. In 2 King 6 v 5 -7, the bible tell us that somebody was cutting down trees by river Jordan and the axe head fell into the river, and then through the intervention of God they got the axe head back; that is an example of recovery.
They had it, they lost it, and they recovered it back. Everything you have that you lost, you will recover it back in Jesus name.
now when we talk about partial recovery, it means you have recovery, but there is a sign left behind that says once upon a time you lost something; for example if you had a wound an then the wound got healed and left a scar behind, that will be partial recovery, for instance in the case of Samson in Judges 16 in v 22 & 28 the bible say the hair on his head begin to grow again.
He had hair on his head before, it was cut off but it began to grow again, but before it began to grow again, his eyes had been plucked out. So even though his hair began to grow again, his blindness remained but when we talk about total recovery, we are talking about recovery in such a manner as if you have never lost anything
In 2 king 5 v 14 the bible say when Naaman entered Jordan the seventh time and he came back, the bible say his skin was returned to him like the skin of a new born child. In other words there was no sign left that he was a leper. And I am prophesying into somebody here tonight, by the time God finishes with you, nobody will ever know you had a problem.
I will give you an example, it is a testimony you know; we had a Holy Ghost service at the stadium, the stadium was filled inside and out. There was a man sitting at the very top, one of his kidneys has been removed and the day the kidney was removed, there were all sorts of complication. The doctors spent eighteen hours operating on him.
But then he was there and the word of God came; that there is someone here, one of your kidneys has been removed and the second one is disturbing you, and God says am giving you two new ones.
And the man looked round oh God how can you picked me up among the whole crowd, that was on Friday.
On Monday he went to the doctor and the doctor examined and he said what am I seeing, I know you, I know the trouble we went through when we were removing one of your kidney but now there are new and the two mare brand new.
There is somebody here by the time my God finishes with you nobody will know you had a problem. When we talk about total recovery, we automatically begin to think or talk about the one who can make it possible, the great restorer Himself.
The Almighty God made a promise we read He said I will restore even the years that the cancan worms have already eaten, something that a animal had already eaten! Swallow digested.
God said I will bring it back, what kind of God is this? He said in Jeremiah 32 v 27 He said behold I am the God of all flesh, is anything too hard for me? The Almighty God is asking somebody here today, He is asking you directly, He says sons, daughters is anything too hard for me?
When God told Sarah in Gen. 18 v 9-14, that Sarah would have a son, Sarah was already approaching ninety years of age and her husband a hundred. It was a long time she had her messes last. She laughed and God said why are you laughing? I am saying to somebody here tonight when you are sharing your testimony; the whole world will laugh with you.
God asked Sara a question, is anything too hard for me?
There are some of you who had lost hope you are not even thinking of having children anymore. You have close the chapter on that, you have said to God, thank you for everything you have done, I will serve you till the end.
Don’t worry about child anymore, don’t bother, when I though you could do it some twenty years ago, I asked you, but now no problem.
I come to you in the name of the Lord tonight, the God I serve, He will surprise you. When people hear that you are pregnant, they will laugh; who are you talking about? That grandmother! The day you are sharing your testimony and by the special grace of God it will be during the next convention, people will be laughing with you.
This is the God with whom nothing shall be impossible. A God who is never too late.
When He arrived in John 11v 21-23; the sister of Lazarus said if only you had come earlier, this problem would have been solved. He laughed, He said I am never too late, you have your own time table, I have my own, according to your own time table, I should have arrived last year, or ten years, or twenty years ago.
According to your to my own time table, when I arrived, is the right time, for somebody here tonight, this is your right time.
Thank you Father. The Lord said there is someone her beginning form this moment your life will become a testimony.
Daddy says there is somebody here tonight; He said those who prepare the furnace for you will roast in it.
My God is always on time, never too early, never too late. And He can restore health to you at His own time. You know the story in John5v2-9; tells us the story of a man who has been sick for thirty eight years; he had been expecting his miracle for thirty eight years, but when the time table of God came in an instant, the sickness of thirty eight years was forgotten.
Let me speak into the life of those of you who are sick tonight, as the Lord lives, He will heal you in a manner that nobody will know you have been sick because.
He is the original surgeon. When He performed the first operation in Gen. 2 v 21-23, not a single drop of blood fell on the ground, not a single scar left behind, if it were so the bible would have recorded it for us; He puts Adam to sleep. He is the original initiators of what we called anesthetic. Whatever we are discovering today, the great physician had done it before, He had done it long, long before.
He finished the operation and there was not a single scar, he did not tell Adam, come back in a weeks’ time for me to remove the stitches. He did a perfect job, no blood, no scar.
As you are hearing my voice now, in the name of the perfect physician, be healed now in the name of Jesus.
I have told you the testimony of an old woman who was sick, they took her to the hospital, perform operation on her and sew her back but because of old age, and because she is very old, the wound refuse to heal.
So whenever she eats, food was coming out from that side and the doctors were waiting for her to die, but because she was rich, they kept her in a room there.
And the daughter came and “said I don’t mind my grandmother dying, she is old, but I don’t want her to die in a mess. Let Jesus heal her and after that if she wants to go, she can go” and since I couldn’t travel at that time, I said get me an hand kerchief, she got me an handkerchief and I prayed to it. She took the handkerchief to the old woman and placed it on the place of operation.
The doctor came the following morning, to find out if mama has gone and they cannot even find a place where they operated on her. That God is still on the throne and I am saying to those of you that are here, your recovery shall be total.
Now when you read Mark 5 v 25-34 the bible tells us about the woman with the issue of blood and instead of getting better, she grew worse. She had an encounter with the great restorer, and at once she got healed. Not only was her issue dried up! She recovered physically and she recovered financially.
And I am prophesying into some here today; everything that you have lost physically, you will recover fully and everything you have lost financially, you will recover fully.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is a man here He said I will fertilize every seed that you sow
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said for you; not now becomes now.
He must be talking to me now.
When you read Daniel 4 v 38-47, it tells you the story of Nebuchadnezzar, he was mad, lost his throne, he was eating with animal. But when God decided to restore Him, maybe I should read a bit of that to you maybe you will be able to understand. Daniel 4 let me read just verse 34 ; and at the end of the day, I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up my eye up to heaven, and my understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most high and I praise and hour Him that liveth forever more.
Whose dominion is an everlasting dominion and His kingdom from one generation to another and all the habitant of the earth are reputed as nothing, and He does according to His will in the army of heaven and among the in habitant of the earth, none can stay His hand or say unto Him what doeth thou?
At the same time, my reasoning returned unto me; for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me and my counselors and my lords sought unto me; And I was established in my kingdom and excellent majesty was added unto me.
He was mad, He was no longer on the throne, and he was eating and drinking with the animals. When God decided to restore Him, he restored Him, physically, mentally, socially.
His counselor, south out for him.; They washed him cleaned, they cloth him again, they took him back to his throne and they all said once again, hail to your majesty.
There is someone her today, the position of prominence that you lost; God will restore it back to your life in Jesus name.
One young man, went to UK, he thought things are easy there, just like some of still think, checking out of Nigeria, I am going to Britain, I am going to Britain. I am going to America, there is money there, not knowing the suffering waiting, not knowing a doctor can check out her and he begins to sell ice cream over there. Not knowing there are some people if they see them in the boat they throw them over board.
So he checked out and when he got there and all the friends who have be written to him after greeting him welcome, giving him food for one day, they said this place is not like Nigeria, every man to himself, when the winter gripped him, one good Samaritan saw him and took him to the hospital. And from there they shipped him back home.
And because of what he suffered, his brain began to misbehave. I know what we went through before his brain could become normal again and the one who ran to Britain to study, went to one of the university in Nigeria, and became graduate and today, he is a pastor of one of the biggest churches that we have.
God restore him mentally, restored him physically, mentally, , restored him socially.
And I don’t know who I am talking to tonight; everything that you have lost you will recover.
Thank you, Daddy says there is somebody here tonight; He said your hands are untied now.
This God can restore lost years. Sorry Lord, the Lord said maybe you didn’t understand what He is saying, He said there is someone here , everything you have touched, have failed, He said your hand are untied now.
This God can restore the lost years, he said I will restore to you the year that the cancan worm has eaten. He is saying that the years you have wasted, He can restore them back to you, humanly speaking that is not possible, humanly speaking, 2006 has gone and has gone forever.
But then we are talking about God, we are not talking about human being. The Almighty has it in His power to make you younger. Oh years there is a certain amount of years that you are going to spend on earth. But the Almighty God reserve the right to say okay I say you are suppose to use seventy but now I am changing it to hundred. Who can say no? The bible say in Psalm 103 v 5, He said your age is renewed like the eagle.
The bible tells men in the book of Job 42 v12-17. The bible says God gave Job an hundred and forty years an extra year.
Tell your neighbor. You think I am going to die very soon? You are in for a surprise. Let somebody shout halleluiah!
There is the story of somebody who is here right now; he came to see me and said, forty years ago at that time. At that time I was forty four years old ; I met a prophet and the prophet told me everything that will happen for the rest of my life; The number of children I will have, the kind of house that I will built. Etc. but he also told me that that at the age of eighty four I will die, he even gave me the date. So he said I have come to you sir, that is why I have come to the camp, I want to die on holy ground.
And I laughed, and he said my boy this is not a laughing matter. I said sir, are you ready to serve the Lord? So he said I have just been born again, I will love to serve Him, but I have two weeks left, I said my God is greater than any prophet. As I am talking to you now, papa is ninety six and if you want to know who I am talking about, be the first person to go to church on Sunday morning, he will get there before you.
If God said eighty four, God is free to change His mind and say one hundred. There is somebody here today those who are waiting for your funeral will wait long years; Because He can restore lost years.
He can bring back the years that you have wasted, He can restore wasted efforts, many of us have been struggling for a long time and there is nothing to show for it. But things will change from tonight.
It is good enough if we say from now you won’t have wasted effort, but my God can bring back the reward of wasted effort to you. In Luke 5 v17 a story that you all know very well when Peter fished all night and caught nothing and Jesus asked him to throw his net into the sea and he threw one and he caught enough fish that two boats were filled.
Not too long ago Daddy was explaining to me that the fish he caught at once was the fish he should have caught all night long. All night long he has been throwing his net, all night long if he has been catching one or two, by the time is in the morning, two boats should have been filled up. And God restore to him all the wasted efforts.
You know many at time they look at you and say, the crab has been making oil all these years, it didn’t fill a bottle, now you will go to them and say by the special grace of God, my crab attended the Holy Ghost service and now all the tankers in Nigeria cannot carry the oil.
All the wasted efforts shall be fully restored to you.
There are some of you here who has been on the same spot for twenty years in the mighty name of Jesus Christ they shall be fully restored back to you; it shall come within the next one year. There are some pastors here who have been fasting, who have been praying, who have been preaching and yet the church is never full. Beginning from today, all your wasted effort shall be fully restored.
The night that the children of Israel left Egypt in Exodus 12 v 35-36 thank you Father, the Lord said there some here, He said you are barely surviving, He said beginning from now you will begin to live abundantly.
In Exodus 12 v 35-36 the bible tells us that all the labors of four hundred years, all the salaries of four hundred years; Egypt paid in one night.
I decree once again, everything that the enemies have stolen from you; beginning from tonight, you will recover fully. You will recover fully. Not only can He restore you years, lost years, wasted efforts. He can restore lost abilities.
There are certain things some of you use to be able to do. Some of us use to be able to sing, but now the voice is something else, some of us use to be prayer warriors, now they can’t even pray for one hour.
I know some pastors who use to wake up and pray to God and say Father send me difficult problems today, because they know by the time they have shake the heaven for one hour; miracles will happen. But now the gifts are gone.
I have good news for you, every gift that you have lost, every abilities that you have lost, in that name that is above every other name they shall be fully restored to you tonight.
I told you the story of the axe head that drop in the river in 2Kings 6v17. When an axe head falls into a river, unless there is somebody who is a good diver that is the end of the story. But nobody swam nobody dived that day, but the Almighty God brought out the axe head that day. Your own axe head that fell into river Jordan, God will bring it to the surface this night. Because He says they that wait upon the Lord, he shall renew their strength, He will renew your strength.
Am sure some of you will remember the case; when we held a Holy Ghost service in Tafa Balewa square. The team was “the battles of the gods”. There was a man who came to Lagos, he was impotent for years, he was frustrated and he decided that he will commit suicide.
He came from east if I am correct to greet his people farewell before going. Then he heard that there was a programming going on in TBS and he came to attend. And while the program was going on he suddenly saw that something was moving again, the thing that was dead a long time came alive again. Every ability that you have lost tonight you will get them back in Jesus name.
Thank you my Father, the Lord says there is someone here today, they though you cannot rise again, God says by the time I am finished with you, you will be higher than all of them.
I rejoice with someone, because Daddy says the major obstacle to your fruitfulness has been relocated.
Thank you Father, daddy says I should tell someone, He said don’t quit because the battle is almost over.
He can restore to you lost freedom; He can restore to you lost freedom in Mark 5 v 1-20, bible tells us the story of the mad man of Gadarenes, the man who was so mad that he was living among the dead, but when the Lord saw him. When his day came, in a single day, a mad man became an evangelist, his destiny that has been stolen by the enemy, was fully restored to him one day.
I don’t know who God organize this meeting for, but there is somebody here the enemy thinks they have finish with your case but you will recover all.
I can never forget the case of one man, the day they brought him to come and see us; I saw what i have never seen before, it is not just that he is under demonic oppression but this is of a different type; when he scratches his head he will bring out a beetle, if he puts his hands into his ear, a cockroach will come out, I mean it was a serious case. He said I can’t go out, I can seat with people, because if they seat by me, cockroach will be coming out, beetles will be coming out, all sorts of thing will be coming out.
The enemies though they have finished his case, but they left my God out of the calculation. When God intervene, we prayed a single prayer for him. When I saw him two weeks later; Come and see a perfect gentle man with his face shining, completely at peace with himself.
There is somebody here today, it doesn’t matter how many enemies you have, God will arise for you and your enemies will be scattered in Jesus name.
He can restore to you lost joy. You know there are some of us, it has been a long time since we know the true meaning of joy. I was surprised in a super market, my children and I were there and as usual we were laughing and cracking Christian jokes and suddenly! one white woman said “your laughter makes me want to laugh”
I didn’t even know that I was laughing so specially, but there are some people when they are laughing, the laughter doesn’t go beyond their throat. Because the real thing, the joy that is suppose to spring up is not there. Whatever is not allowing you to laugh; my Father will deal with it tonight. That is why the first message God asked me to give you tonight is that God will make you to laugh. You will laugh in the Mighty name of Jesus.
In Luke 7 v11-15,
Thank you Father, I believe this is for me, so I am saying Amen, the Lord said there is someone here, He said before the end of this year there will be dramatic changes for the better in your life.
In Luke 7 v11-15, the bible tells us the story of a widow who was going to bury her only son, and her sorrow was multiplied. She used to know joy. She remembered the day she got married, that was a day of joy, she remembered the day she gave birth to her first child, it was a day of joy, but things have changed. It was sorrow upon sorrow. And the last joy she had, the enemy is taking it away but the great restorer met her on the way and restored her joy to her.
I want to prophesy in the name of Jesus Christ, those of you who have been weeping every month, you will not weep again. Some of you knew joy before, on the day of your weeding, it was joy galore, but when months followed months and months became years and people began to ask what is happening? And when they began to give you names, when they began to call you fruitless tree; that was when the sorrow began. Your joy shall be returned in Jesus name.
He can restore forgotten dreams, In Exodus 3 v1-10, bible tell us how Moses had an encountered with God, Mosses knew deep within Himself, he knew the way he was born was different, the way he was preserved was different, he knew God had a purpose for his life; that is why when he went out and saw an Egyptian fighting an Israelite, he killed the Egyptian.
But that was forty years before, he thought he was going to be a deliverer but now he has become a fugitive forty years have gone by, he was now eighty years old. He wasn’t thinking of deliverance anymore, he was waiting to die, he was now satisfy with eating, looking at after sheep and go to bed.
But one day the bush burn, his dream came alive, the Almighty God said Moses” that which you and his destiny was restored and his forgotten dreams came back. The Almighty God said Moses that which you dreamt about, that you have forgotten will be fulfilled now.
There some of us here, who had great dreams before that we are going to be great, that we will do mighty things, that the whole world will hear about us, but then as time goes on, circumstances began to come, one problem after the other, we have forgotten those dream.
I come to you in the name of the Almighty God, every dreams you ever had, of greatness, of success, of service to the Almighty God, shall be fulfilled in Jesus name.
I am sure I have told you the story before, when I was very young, sometime around 1950’s. In my village then there was only two Lories. One is Austin; one is Bedford, only those who are old will know these things. In my village then only few people have shoes, I think the King had a pair or two, I think the headmaster had one, if remember very well maybe the catchiest had one.
Then one day, the Anglican bishop came to visit and we the school children line up on the road to welcome him and the hunters were firing their deign guns to welcome him. And he came in his car, brand new shining car in his dress; I have never seen anything like that before, his shoes… my mouth dropped open.
I have never seen anything like that before. When I got home that day, I told my mother, I am going to be a bishop. Years passed, I forgot everything about bishop or no bishop. Then in 1981, when I became the general overseer, I went to visit our church in our village, I went in a brand new car, my shoe were shinning, the school children line the road, the hunters were firing their deign guns. And I remembered the dream of thirty one years.
There is somebody her today, every dream that you have had that you have forgotten, they will be fully restored unto you.
Our God can restore even your life. Even if you are already dead He can raise you up again. In John 11v 39 – 44Lazarus was dead and buried. But my Father brought him back, when he brought him back, the flesh that was already rotten, was not rotten again, and the blood that was already water became blood again. The sickness that killed him was no longer there, because the one, who is the great restorer, is also the resurrection and life.
Even if the doctors have given you dead line for death. In the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, new life will be giving unto you .Maybe I should tell you the story, some of you have heard it, some of you have not heard it, you remember the man that was told by the prophet, that he was going to die in a particular year and he said what can he do? And the prophet said there is nothing he can do so he said it is alright, if I am going to die this year, could you help me beg God, that I should see the 31st of this year, after all 31st is still part of the year, the prophet said I don’t know, all I am asked to tell you is that you are going to die this year. 31st of December came, very early in the morning, the man ran into the church at Ebute metta, as soon as he entered he said the death that will come and kill me here; I will be waiting to see. That is more than twenty five years ago.
I have good news for someone because you got here today; the death that was hanging over you is canceled in Jesus name.
He can restore every lost blessings in Mal. 3v8-11,
Thank you Father, the Lord asked me to tell someone, He said I assure you; I will make way where there seems to be no way.
Thank you Father, the Lord ask me to tell someone, I will surprise the specialist.
Daddy says there someone here tonight, He says they think you are barren, He says but I will fill you quiver with beautiful arrows.
Thank you Lord, the Lord says that the fellow concerned will understand! But He says I should tell you that the river will begin to flow again.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said each time you remember this day, you will dance for joy.
Halleluiah! The Lord said there is someone here tonight He said for you the wind will begin to blow again.
Daddy says by this time next year, you will hold a special thanksgiving service.
Halleluiah! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said right now, nobody pays attention to you, He said but very soon when they are describing you, they will use the word great.
The Lord said there is someone here today; He said your age will not stop me from what I want to do.
So anyway, in Malachi 3 v 8-11, the Almighty God says that some people are robbing Him of tithe and offering that they are under a curse; but He said if they will repent and they begin to bring all the tithe and offering into his house. He said He will open the windows of heaven, that there will not be enough rooms to receive them, and that he will begin to rebuke devourers for their sake.
You know what that passage is saying, is that when the Almighty God decides to restore your blessing, is that the first thing He will do is to change all your curses into blessing and number two, the blessings you have lost, when He package all of them together and He drops them at once, there won’t be enough room to receive. Then number three, anything that wants to take away from the blessings, He said he will silence them.
I have good news for somebody here tonight, every curse that is hanging on your family, they are broken in Jesus name. Every blessing you have lost shall be fully restored in Jesus name and anything called devourers will never operate in your life again in Jesus name.
Let me talk briefly about Hannah and then I will get out of the way, in the other sermon we will preach some other time. Hannah is a classical example of someone who had not just total recovery, but she had total recovery plus, plus. She thought she was barren, they were mocking her, they gave her tough time, but then God intervened.
God remembered her. And she gave birth to her first baby boy. In 1Sam.1v19-20. And when she began to sing in 1Sam. 2v1 she said the mockers had been silenced.
I decree tonight, that all those who have been mocking you, by the end of this month, there mouth will be shut for ever.
The adversary who though I am the only one who will be carrying babies’; suddenly saw the arrival of Samuel.
All those who had written you off, all those who have been mocking you, all those who have been using your problem to describe you, in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, This month they shall be silenced.
In 1Sam.2v21, the bible said she had five extra children. Nobody will believe when they now begin to hear the cry of children, the laughter of children, nobody will believe this was a woman they use to call barren.
And I want to prophesy to someone, when you are coming to Holy Ghost service, you are going to need a bus to bring your children.
But then to show you that when God wants to restore, he can do it completely and do it plus, plus; the first son that God gave to Hannah was not a child that you say take and let me rest.
In 1Sam.3v19 -20 the bible says Samuel became the national prophet the whole nation, the whole nation knew that a prophet had been raised up. There are people here tonight that people are calling barren, you will produce the next president, you will produce world evangelist you will produce General overseer,.
Thank you Father, amen!
The Lord said that there is someone to join me in this one; He said you have had breakthroughs before He said but the big one is around the corner. The really big one, Is around the corner.
Let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Let me close, whatever remains, God himself will teach you. When I was praying in preparation for this night, because I know this is a very special night. It is a special night in my own life. I won’t tell you why. I said Lord how can I recover all? I know you can do it, you are the great restorer, there are opportunities that I have lost, and there are certain things that are not as it were. When a man is sixty five is not the same thing as when he is twenty five.
God said it is simple he said do you remember the story of the prodigal son in Luke15v 24, that boy had everything then he left and squander everything, lost everything and began to suffer, but then he decide I will go back home, and meet my father, let me be one of your servant, at least I will have food to eat, house to live in,
But when he got home, he wasn’t made one of the servants, they washed him, they changed his garment, he put ring in his hand, they put shoe on his feet and celebration began.
And I said yes I know the story. He said son if I can recover you, you can recover all.
If I can recover you, you can begin to love me with the same love that you had at the beginning. If you can return to your first love fully, you can recover all.
Some of you know what that means. Some of you know how is use to be, when God was the number one in your heart , when nothing matters except God. Some of you remember those days, that if you hear the chorus you drop whatever you are doing and began to dance. In those days when we became born again and we are having a program and it is time for break, to get us together, nobody will make any announcement, somebody will just get to the microphone and began to sing: only Jesus can save; only Jesus can save halleluiah!
If you are in the toilet you will run out because they are singing about your Jesus.
But now, there are singing choruses here, the drums are beating, the jitters, the keyboard, everybody is here, I see some people, lining the road there, using their mobile phone, you see some people joking, strolling? “What are they doing? They are only singing choruses. It is not time yet”.
He say if I can recover you, if you can return fully to me, I will make sure that everything you have lost, I will make sure that you recover them back. Including those things that you thought are gone forever, I will go to the belly of the locust and bring the year they have eaten, I will command the year they have eaten come out.
The Lord said to me son, even you don’t know everything about me, at least you know that I can reverse the irreversible, I can make dry bones live again, everything you had lost, you can recover again, If I can recover you. If you can go back to your first love; For those of you who are hotspot for God. Am pleading to all of us; a night like this comes once in the life of an individual; let this be your night of absolute rededication the Most High God.
Many of us before we became familiar with God, when we hear that they are praising God, we want to do it more than anyone else, but now years have pass, we have become familiar with him. In those days we didn’t know the choruses we were learning them, but now we know them we are not singing them.
In those days nobody ask us to shout before we shouted. Now they have to prompt before we can shout halleluiah.
He is saying to you tonight, if I can recover you, you can recover all. But what about those who have not even given their life to him, the English man will say opportunities once lost can never be recover. That is for man not for God, not for God, if you come to him, even the opportunities that you have lost, he will return them to you.
He is the Almighty God, with him nothing shall be impossible, so if you are here tonight and you have not given your life to Jesus; you can come now, surrender your life to him now, the bible say if any man be in Christ old thing have passed away behold all things have become new behold all things have become new.
So if you want to give your life to Jesus come now.

Forgive them their sins in Jesus name. your blood that cleanses from all sins let it cleanse away all their sins, write their name in the book of life, Lord from now on let everything become brand new for them and let it be well with them. In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
I have decided to follow Jesus all the way, with all my life, with all I have, with whatever I maybe come. That is my own decision, is anybody decide with me, stand up on your feet and say father, whatever I am, whatever I may become, I submit completely to you help me to remain faithful to you Lord.

John15v1-5, I am the true vine and my father is the husbandman, every branch in me that bears not fruit he takes away: and every branch that bears fruit, he purges it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word I have spoken unto you. Abide in me and I in you, as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye except ye abide in me. I am the vine and ye are the branches; he that abides in me and I in him, the same bring much fruit, for without me ye can do nothing.
What do we mean by partnership, partnership means two or more people working together foe mutual benefit? For example; husband and wife they come together in order to produce children. A husband cannot produce a child alone, the wife cannot bring a child alone but when the two of them combine, a child can be born. The wife will say this is my child, the father will say this is my child.
Partnership of two or more people working together for mutual benefits. So when we talk about divinepartnership. It means God and man working together for mutual benefit.
The vine needs the branches; it is the branches that produce the fruits. The branches need the vine because without the vine, the branches can produce nothing; of course we know the branches need the vine more than the branches need the vine.
Because when a branch is cut off, the vine produces other branches.
I need God, God needs me, you need God, God needs you. But I need God more than he needs me, because if He says he wants to use me and I refuse, he has billions to choose from.
The preacher who spoke before, God need human praise, absolutely correct, but Jesus Christ said, if human will not praise him, he will call stones to cry forth. The Almighty God will not replace me with a stone. If you want beyond everything that you want to be use by him, before we go any further, give him a shout of praise.
Now, every successful fellow will tell you one thing that the secret of success is nothing goes for nothing.
Ask the business men they will tell you there is nothing lunch nothing goes for nothing, oh but daddy, salvation is free, somebody paid for it, who paid for your salvation? If you come to Jesus, healing is free, it is free but somebody paid for it, what did bible say; by his stripe we are healed.
That is the secret of success, nobody passes exam without studying. What Jesus Christ said is that the Holy Spirit will remind you of what you have read, it didn’t say, you can go into the exam hall without reading and when you get there the Holy Spirit will start writing on the wall for you. Nothing goes for nothing!
So in 1king17 v 8-16, which the first preacher has already quoted, God said to the widow, you feed my prophet, and I will see you through famine. Nothing goes for nothing, the prophet came and said give me food, the widow said I have only one meal left, the prophet said, I am the representative of the most high, do my own first. Nothing goes for nothing.
The Almighty God said to the same widow, in the remaining verses of 1king 17 … hide my prophet from those who are seeking his life and I will chase death away from your life, nothing goes for nothing.
I give God the glory that at long last the church of God is coming to that realization. For many years the churches in Africa, they depend on aid from abroad, we are poor help us and those people will send money, Those who are sending the money they are getting richer, those who are receiving are remaining poorer because nothing goes for nothing. But now the tide is turning because we have working up to the realization that nothing goes for nothing.
So now when we want to hold a Holy Ghost service in London, it was difficult, my people there was reluctant, because it was costing them a lot of money, so I said listening my children, don’t worry about money, I will bring all the money we need from Nigeria, they though we are poor, but no. no we are not, the all sufficient God is our father and he said we will lend to nations, look around you see the situation in any country today and you will discover that the giving church is always prospering.
Everybody else may be crying things are hard, but for us we keep on shouting halleluiah!
So when God said you should be in partnership with him, he is simply saying, let us walk together, for mutual benefit. You do something for me; I will do something for you, because nothing goes for nothing.
Many at times when some people are praying for offering; we say father bless those who have given and those who didn’t give provide for them, that prayer will not be answered. Because what God said is that whatever you give me, I will multiply in a hundred folds and I will give it back to you, meaning what you give me zero I will multiply zero by hundred and give it back to you, zero multiplied by zero will give you zero.
How many of you want to be partner with God tonight? Let me hear you shout halleluiah!
1king18 v 46, God is saying
The woman jump up and went to cook what does that tell you? Jesus is saying if you are ready to minister to me, then I will heal you, many of us remain sick today because we want to be well for the wrong reason. He will heal you if you are ready to serve him.
You heard my testimony before, before I became born again, I have malarial fever every two weeks, if a whole month passed by without being knock down by fever we will celebrate, we will drink to celebrate, ask my wife and I will wake up the following ,morning with headache.
But when I became born again my prayer was heal me and I will serve you. Instantly he took the fever away that was in1973, but later on he came round and said son how about the second part of the prayer? You said heal me and I will serve you. I have healed you, are ready to serve God. If you really mean that before you walk out of here tonight, he will heal you.
In Zachariah 1v17,
Thank you a father, thank you Lord, let me say amen to this one, the Lord said there is a miracle coming and it is the first of its kind and it is for someone in here tonight.
In Zachariah1v-17, he said if you are ready to build my kingdom, he said I will prosper you, he said my city, and my kingdom will be built through prosperity. why do you want to prosper, if I ask anyone of you now, why do you want to be a millionaire, So that I can build houses all over the world, so that my car will be so long people will no, it that the reason, some of you want to prosper so that you can marry the second and the third wife.
He said if you want to build my kingdom, then I will prosper you. In Luke 6 v38, he said you give to me, and I will cause men to give you. Gal.6v7, he said you sow and I will cause you to reap. Nothing goes for nothing!
I have told you before, you cannot go to the best soil in Nigeria, fast for thirty days and night and pray there, and command rice to grow, rice grow, without sowing rice. The only things that will grow is weed. And you know who is going to plant the weed? Satan!
Nothing goes for nothing, but the Almighty God said in 2 Corinthians 6v6, let Paul sow, let Apollo water and I God will give the increase. You have to play your part, stop deceiving your selves that God will do everything for you when you do nothing.
One of my sons said, the faith that expect God to do everything without you doing anything at all is irresponsible faith and I say God bless you my son you got it right.
He is calling for partnership, he want to walk with you. If you are willing and obedient then you will eat the good of the land.
The Almighty God is healing all sorts of legs tonight, all kind of things in the leg, they are disappearing now.
Thank you Lord!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said your friends are saying we warned you, the Lord asked me to tell you, I will turn the tide.
Oh! Thank you father, there is somebody her tonight, that is me and one person, the Lord said for the rest of this year it will be one favor, following another.
You know the first preacher have preached all my sermon. You know whenever God wants to bless you, he sets you up. Those of you who are not here during the divine encounter on Monday I encourage you to get the tape. It will change your life.
You know these tithe something, you know in Malachi 3v10 when God says bring all the tithe in my house so that there might be food in my house, he said if you do that, you provide food for my own house, He said I will make sure that there will be not enough room in that your own house to contain blessings.
If you studied that passage very well you will laugh, why will you laugh, do you think if you don’t pay your tithe there will be no food in the house of God? Do you really think, if you don’t pay your tithe God will not feed his prophet? You must be kidding because if you just take one example, take the example of Elijah, for a whole year, birds, what do I call it birds were bringing this man of God food every day, bread and meat, two times in a day in the time of famine.
No human being was used. now were, were the birds getting the bread, were, were they getting the meats? Beloved, I believe God wants to change the destiny of somebody tonight. Those of you who have been cheating yourself because you refuse to partner with God.
Let me tell you one thing tonight, don’t waste your time trying to understand God, God does not want to be understood.
You can’t understand him, he can only reveal himself to you, and you can’t find him out by searching. Your brain can not cope with finding out God.
Those of you who came to the Holy Communion service, I was about to go into that but there was not enough time. In John 21, when Peter and his friend went to fish and they caught nothing and Jesus came and told them where to throw their net, and they caught they so much fish and Peter jumped out of the boat into the water and by the time they arrived at the beach, they found Jesus already cooking fish and bread. He has no net, so how did he catch the fish? There was no bakery near, so where did the bread came from? When we are talking about the Almighty and you are trying to understand with your little brain…
In 1king19v4-8, when Elijah was running form Jezebel and he was tired and he said Lord kill me and he fell asleep. When he angel woke him up, there was food cooking, warm food, where did the food come from?
I have good news for somebody here today; as you become Gods partner for the rest of your life you will never know hunger again. So when he says, pay your tithe, so that there will be food in my house; it is you he wants to bless.
He has ways of providing for himself, when he said honour me with the first fruit of your first increase, who gave you the increase to start with? Who is the controller of the rain?
The first preacher said something again, I said he has preached my sermon; he said the best that you can do for yourself with all your contact, with your wisdom, with your ability, is less than the least that divine favor can do for you.
In the month of August, we went to Israel and they told me that all the bible colleges there had been close down. Except one; the one belonging to the Redeem Christian church of God.
Answer the question; do I know the minister of religion? in Israel, do I know the prime minister, I only Go to Israel once in two years. I am here but God is in Israel, I am playing my little role here, he is doing my role everywhere that it is needed.
I prophesy to somebody here tonight, as you become Gods partner, the miracle you don’t even deserve shall be given to you in Jesus name.
You remember one of my sons who was given testimony last month after I make that kind of prophesy during the convention; he said he got home and somebody said I have a job for you, he said I don’t need a job, am doing fine where I am.
They said no you don’t understand, we want to give you the post of assistant general manager and he said okay if that is the way it is. He got there and he was given the post of assistant general manager, but then they gave him the salary of the post of deputy general manager, without writing an application. He didn’t say I want to work….
Who want that kind of testimony? If you are the one you better say amen loud and clear.
And am not talking about tithing tonight it is just coming in. when I became born again, and they say I must pay tithe, I laughed at them, what is wrong with this people don’t they know that I am a mathematicians. The whole salary was not enough, now you say I should give you ten percent. They think they are wise.
I didn’t know I was cheating myself. There are times that you think you are wise and you become a fool.
Finally when God wants to be merciful unto me, I said I will do everything God said I should do. The very first month I paid my tithe, I got to work the Monday, the following Monday, my head of department call me and said you are doing some research, are you not?
I said yes sir
He said don’t you need money for research?
(I didn’t even know, there is any money) I said I need sir, he said go and write and this is how much you should write.
When someone begin to beg you to come and collect money. Then you know we are talking about a God you can’t understand.
I am saying it again as many of you that wants to become his partner, beginning from now, miracle you don’t deserve shall be given unto you.
The Lord said there are some of his children who are deceived into secret cult, after they join they didn’t like it at all but they are afraid to come out, the Lord asked me to tell such children; come out tonight and I will set you free. So if you are one of them run forward now, the power of God is here to set you free and there is nothing the enemy can do for you. If you are one of such, come forward now…
Thank you my Lord. I want to thank God for those of you that come forward because God really wants to set you free tonight. There is a chair in front of you there; it is a chair that we reserve for the Holy Spirit. And I receive instruction to bring the chair down there, on top of it is …… (To be filled with cut off of disk)
Arise oh! Lord, and your enemies be scattered singing
For those of you coming why are you just coming?, why didn’t come when I called you the first time.
The only thing is the little God can do is always much more than you can handle with. One blessing from the Almighty God and you won’t have enough room to receive, take the example of 2king 4 v 8-17, there was a woman there who was already wealthy and she had everything except something. And so she just decided let me be Gods partner.
Let me build a house for Gods servant, and she did and the Almighty God says okay let me respond; let me give you what money cannot buy. And he gave her a child in her old age and even when death came to come and steal the child the Almighty God says I am the controller of life and death.
So God is simply saying when he says be my partner, he is simply saying if you are willing to work for me, I will work for you in 2 Chronicles 1v6-12 when Solomon gave a thousand burnt offering to God, God came and said alright boy, you have shown that you appreciate me for the little that I have already done for you, now ask what you want because we a partners. You have given me a thousand burnt offerings. In return I give you a blank cheque.
Ask anything you want and the boy said give me wisdom; so that I can use the wisdom for you, I really want to be your partner oh Lord, In every area possible. And God said alright I will give you wisdom and that which you did not even ask for; I will add it so that you know that it pays to be my partner.
I prophesy to someone here today, everything you need to serve God satisfactory, God will release it to you tonight.
Many at times when God ask us to come and serve Him, we always think we are busy; God I will serve you, but let me finish my own assignment first. And then I will come and take care of your own.
But Like the preacher who preached first, he said Peter fished all night, he caught nothing. When you are working without partnership with God, like he said before me, it is called toiling.
There is a different between working and toiling; when you work in partnership with God, you will work and reap; you will work like a rat and you will enjoy like an elephant. But when you are working without him, then you will be working like an elephant and be eating like a rat.
When Peter, said okay you can use my boat, the Almighty God said thank you my friend, you have done mine , now let me do yours, you are a fisher man, I am a preacher. You have given me your boat to use, now let me show you where all the fishes are hiding.
You know he told peter to throw all the net and peter threw just only one and he caught so much fish, two boats were filled. And there were sinking.
Do you know all you need in your life is just one major breakthrough not two, just one and people will not be able to catch up with you again! Just one!
Look at the Youngman called Bill Gate one break through. Computer, one major breakthrough and the rest of the world is running after him. You know God said when I am the one prospering you, nations will envy you, do you know how many times they have taken that young man to court because he is prospering?
There is somebody here tonight too; because you are entering a partnership with God very soon, nations will begin to envy you.
So what is the meaning of divine partnership?
It is God simply saying do mine and I will do yours, that is all, that is all it simply means. Let me give you a testimony.
The Lord said there is someone here today; he said those who are pouring cold water on your joy shall be no more.
The Lord said I should tell someone here today that your stream will soon become a big river.
I have just finished my Ph.D. thesis, I submitted and everybody knows that when you submit your thesis, the head of department will send it to the external supervisor, and that one will read it at his convenience and he will fix a date when he will come and examine you face to face.
That could take months, because it is at the convenience of the external examiner. And we all know in Nigeria, only God knows when it will finally arrive. I submitted mine and I went to hold a crusade in Ilesha.
Before I came back my head of department, decided to travel by air to go and meet my external supervisor, got there, gave him the thesis, told him I am not leaving until you have read this one I have brought. He sat down there so that the external supervisor has no other option but to read if he is to get rid of this man.
He finish reading, my head of department asked him; I want the date for the oral exam before I go and the external examiner said, I have no question to ask him, go and give him his PhD .
It doesn’t happen like that, I was doing crusade, working for my partner, and my partner was working for me. He is the controller of head of departments, He is the controller of head of external examiners, He is the controller of kings, He is the controller of presidents.
How many of you want to be his partner? Let me hear you say amen loud and clear. You win soul for him; he said he will answer all your prayer.
No door can be shut against you when you are praising him, when they shut up Paul and Silas and they say to God around midnight, Lord you we are your partners, you didn’t see us in church tonight to worship you because some people kept us in prison, you know if we were free, we will praise you all the same.
And that Almighty God says, I will show you that I am your partner. You praise I will shake open the prison doors, I will break all yokes, the one who is suppose to oversee your punishment will begin to serve you.
Divine partnership is for all mutual benefit of all, but the benefit is more for us than of the side of God. He said to Joshua, just ask the people to shout and I will pull down the wall of Jericho, the wall of Jericho is so big that in the real sense of the word, the progress of Joshua and that of the Israel have come to an end.
Just one single shout and suddenly the way open, let me hear someone shout one single halleluiah! Thank you father, now the Lord said there are some students here, anytime you get to the exam hall your head will just go blank, not once, not twice, now if you are one of such, just come forward we will continue while you come. In Phil.1v 20-12 Paul said for me to live is Christ and to die is gain.
So just raise your hand to the Almighty God and praise him, He is worthy to be praise, he is worthy to be magnified, give him all glory, give him all honour. When he opens no man can shut, when he shut no man can open, when he shut no man can open, he is a wonderful God, it is a mighty God, he is a faithful God, there is no one like him. Wisdom belong to him, power belongs to him, promotions belong to him, give him all glory, give him all honour tonight, he is worthy to be praise. He is worth to be praise in Jesus mighty name we have prayed
I want you to put your left hand on your head and then raise your right hand up, I am going to pray for you now, let your amen be loud and clear;
In the Mighty name of Jesus, father when you spoke to the red sea it parted , everything that has been blocking the memory of your children let it be parted in the name of Jesus, every obstruction to the memory of your children let it be removed now.
Every plant that you did not plant in this your children let it be uprooted now. That divine wisdom that causes people to excel, release to your children now. Thank you father, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed. Amen, it is done so you can go back to your seat rejoicing. Glory be to God! Your lectures are in for a surprise.
Thank you father
… so Paul said in Phil.1v20-21, he said for me to live is Christ, and to die is gain, in order words he was saying, I will leave for you Christ and even if I die, I will die being your partner.
And the Almighty God said if that is the case then I will perform special miracle through you. Act 19 v12 the bible says God perform special miracle in the hand of Paul.
So if you want to be his partner, you need to know one thing; in every partnership there is someone called the senior partner, and that is going to be God.
If you want to be His partner, you have to know that God is going to be the senior partner. Because inPs.91v1 he is called the Most high, that means there is nobody higher than him.
The interesting thing is; if you enter in to partnership with him, he will do most of the work, he will be the one actually doing most of the work; Mosses lifted his hand but it was the Almighty God who caused the red sea to blow all through the night. To split the red sea into two, Moses lifted his two hands and it was God who discomfited the Amalekite.
Joshua was fighting for God, but the bible said in Joshua 10 v 8-14, that as the enemies were trying to run away God was raining bomb on their head and ripping the head open. So when the battle was over Joshua saw the people and said this one was not killed by sword, this head is scattered.
Joshua told the sun to stand still; he could only say that because he knows his senior partner is standing up there. You do your own and he will do that which you cannot do.
For example God knows I don’t like cold weather and that is why he made a Nigerian but once in a while, I have to go and preached in all those cold countries. There was a time they asked me to come and preach in a place called Colorado spring in America, in the middle of their winter, so I have to go because my partner asked me to go.
When I got there, the temperature was so high, that people were wearing tee shirts; I left on Saturday, immediately when I left, all the snow that God kept in store came down.
I just returned in Italy, when I arrived, my children had already bought very heavy cloths for me, they said it has been very, very cold and we know you are coming and you don’t like cold, but now what are we going to do about; I didn’t even pray about it because all the days that I was there, the sun was shining bright in the sky.
Do your own, let him do what him alone can do, you stand up for him and he will make the fiery furnace, to be cold. Refuse to compromise; tell him that you are not going to bow to the idols of this world.
They may throw you into the fiery furnace with you, they may throw you into the den of lions, he will shut the mouth of the lions. You stand up for him; he will answer your prayer by fire.
I can give you several examples, but we have run out of time.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said right now you are on ground zero, he asked me to tell you from now on you will begin to rise.
Daddy says, there is someone here tonight, he said I should assure you that he has commanded death to leave you alone.
The Lord said I have done great thing for you before, but I am about to do something greater.
Anyway, so the Lord is stretching out his hand tonight, he is saying come onto me, all ye that labor, and are heavy ridden and I will give you rest.
Let’s become partners, take my yoke upon you, let us be partner. He said don’t worry my yoke is easy and my burden is light. He said come lets be partners and you will have rest for your soul. It is an invitation; you can accept it and you can refuse it.
Let me tell you the truth; if you accept to be his partner, there must be no looking back. Because he made it clear, that anyone who has put his hand on the plough and decides to look back, he said he cannot be my disciple. He can’t be my partner,
So if you choose to become his partner tonight, it must be forever. And it you are his partner, he will defend you, he will fight your battles for you. Because he is not going to allow anybody to tamper with his partner, you are ready to serve him, and he will heal you.
Can you imagine a doctor, who has a house help, the house help is cooking for him, ironing his cloth, polishing his shoe and then one day fever grabbed the houseboy, what do you think the doctor will do quickly? He will give the boy whatever he needs. If you are useful to someone he will do everything to see that everything is alright with you. I hear of the prayer people pray for me, most of it are selfish prayer they say God will preserve you for us, what is the meaning? Don’t die ho! Because we need you.
You serve him; he will take care of you. be is partner, and he will make sure that you are healthy, that you are free, that you are strong, you serve him, he will raise you up and make you a show unto others, this is the result of those who serve me.
But in, Proverbs1v24-28. He said if I stretch my hands toward to you and you ignore me, if I said bring you hand let us become partners and you said take away your hand who wants to be your partner, he said okay I won’t force you, but I will laugh when your troubles come.
He said then you will call me for help and I will say sorry we are not partners. Carry your burden yourself.
That is why if you are here tonight and you haven’t surrender your life to Christ, come quickly now, come and surrender your life to him. He will save your soul and he will forgive you your sin, he will cleanse you in his blood, and from now things will become different.
The bible says therefore if any man be in Christ he is any new creature, old things have passed away, behold all things are become new. So if you want to give your lives to Jesus come now,
The gate of mercy is still open now , one day it will close, he said even if your sin is as scarlet he will wash you with his blood.
Those of you in front open your mouth asks him to be merciful unto you, tell him to be merciful, ask him to save your soul.
Eternal rock of ages I want to thank you, thank you for your word, thank you for theses people who have come forward tonight, father you promise that whosoever shall come to you, you will in no wise cast out, they have come to you now, receive them in Jesus name. Every sin they might have committed, forgive them in Jesus name. Lord write their names in the book of life, let them be truly born again from today, from now when they call on you answer them. Thank you my father, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.

Shake hand with one or two people and say good evening, God bless you and then you may be seated. I just feel like worshipping God throughout the night. If I have my way, this is what we will do tonight. Has the Lord been good to anybody at all? If He has been good to you let me hear you shout halleluiah! I want to praise God for the various people who have minister in music tonight, you have been very wonderful, I want to thank God for the first speaker, he did a professional job tonight.
He is a true professor. He has been a professor when I was a lecturer in the University of Lagos. He is not only a professor of science; he is a professor in the word of God. I also want to use this opportunity to welcome the new Governor of River State, welcome Sir, may your victory be permanent in Jesus name. Now just in case I forgot those of you who are born in the month of November, stand, and November children let me hear you shout halleluiah! Father I want to commit this your children into your hand this very special November.

In all areas of their lives, let everything become new and let them serve you to the very end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.(amen).Congratulation! God bless you. You may be seated. Mark 1vs 40-45, after the work done by the professor pastor, it is a bit difficult for a pastor to come and preach. Mark 1v 40-45 let somebody raise up his hand and say Lord touch me tonight. And as soon as He has spoken, the leprosy departed from him and he was cleaned. And he strictly charged him and forthwith sent him away and say unto him, see that you say nothing to any man but go thy way and show thyself to the priest and offer for thy cleansing, things that Moses has declared for a testimony unto them. But he went out and began published it more and to blas about the matter in so much that Jesus could not openly come into the city but was in desert places and they come to Him from every quarters.
There is somebody here tonight; your testimony will shake Nigeria. What do we mean by divine involvement? When they want to ask whether you are involve in one thing, they will ask whether you are involve in one thing, they will ask you and say do you have a hand in it? So when we talk about involvement, we talk about having a hand in something. When we talk about divine involvement, we talk about God , having a hand in something, for example in the story of the leper here, all that Jesus need to do to heal this leper is to speak one word, all He needed to say is I will be thou clean and the leper will disappear. When Naaman was healed, Elisha didn’t come out and the miracle happens. Matt 8vs 5-13 the centurion said you don’t need to come to my house, speak one word only and my servant will be made whole and the Lord spoke the word only and the servant was made whole, not only that, in the old laws, the priest is not allowed to touch a leper until he had been healed, so that the uncleanness of the leper will not transferred to the priest, so why then did Jesus touched the leper? He was saying to Him, I will not only heal you, I will have a hand in your affairs from now. Let me hear someone say again Lord touch me tonight. When we call somebody a leper at least in the olding days. It means somebody who can not come tonight, unless he is ringing a bell so that everybody will run, which mean he is sick and because he can’t do any work, he is poor and I don’t need to tell you that a leper is in bondage, that he is a someone who has fought a battle stronger than him and he is defeated, I don’t need to tell you that a leper doesn’t get promotion, that he is stagnated, I don’t need to tell you that a leper is lonely.
Do I need to tell you that a leper does not even know what is coming tomorrow, so a leper is anxious, that he is afraid, that he is sad, that he is a hopeless case because leprosy then was considered incurable, so when the Lord touched the leper, He is saying am not only going to deal with your bondage, I will deal with your defeat in other words I will fight your battle for you, I will deal with your stagnation, I will deal with your bareness, I will deal with your loneness, I will deal with your anxiety, I will deal with your fear,, I will deal with your sorrow. There is somebody here tonight, because God is going to put a hand in your affairs, every problem you ever have will not see tomorrow morning. Now let’s take this thing one by one, in touching the Leper, the Lord heal him. Anybody sick here tonight, Jesus will heal you, He will heal you because according to 1Peter 2v24,
Thank you Father, daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said I should tell you , I am coming your way tonight.
1 Peter2 v 24, He says by His stripe we were healed, you know we prayed a prayer earlier that there might be certain thing that may stand between us and the miracle He has provided as we have prayed, I know He has heard since by His stripe, healing has been procured for us, whatever is stopping your healing will go tonight in Jesus name. but there might be some of us who are not even sick, who are healthy, if He puts His hand in our affairs, He can keep you forever healthy. I used to know someone who used to be very very healthy, because he is someone I admired a lot, in those days when I was a boxer, am sure you know the person now, his name is Mohamed Alli. I use to be mesmerized by how he float like a butterfly and sting like a bee, how he would say I would knock this fellow down in round four and round four, he would knock him down, but then things changed. I saw him when they say him when they say he should light the touch for the Olympic and I saw my hero as he was shaking like a gel.
The one who use to be the world champion, full of strength and ability became a shaking mess, but if God put his hand into your life, not only will He heal you , He can keep you forever because He said in Exodus 15v26, 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, I will put none of the disease that I put on the Egyptian on you for I am the Lord that health thee, there is someone here that is listening to me whether directly or via the internet, internet, you will not know sickness again, maybe you know is someone precious to you has a problem. It is your problem by putting His hand into your affair He can even go and heal the fellow who is at home, because Ps.107v20 says He sent his word and He heal them, all He has to do is to send His word. Tonight every relation of yours that is sick at home in that name of the one called the “the word”. Healing will reach them in Jesus name. I remember years ago when we went to go and hold a crusade in Haiti, there was a researcher for our church there, I was preaching and people were listening to the preaching all over the nation of Haiti throughout the radio, then God spoke and said there is someone who is listening , who is impotent, that you should check everything has become normal, the fellow was not even on the crusade ground, but he was listening by radio, suddenly things changed, so he got up and began to run to the crusade ground, he got up and he began to run towards the crusade ground he was far away from where we are, by the time he came, we have finished the crusade and we have gone to the hotel were we were staying, we were settling down to eat and suddenly the door burst open and the man ran in, are you the preacher? I said well, because we are in a strange land we don’t know what he want to do with the preacher, we said, we are part of the people that organize the crusade. He said I have been important for years and I heard over the radio that God is restoring me to normalcy, look at me sir, I am completely whole. There is somebody here tonight by the time you get home, a miracle will be waiting for you. when the Lord touched the leper, He is saying to him that I will care of your poverty because by cleansing him, he is free to work, not only was he free to work, he has become a popular man in town, so anybody looking for a PRO, knows who to look for. Is anyone poor tonight?, he can change that and change it drastically, in Philippians 4v19 which I was sharing with some of my children last Sunday, He said but me God shall supply all your needs according to His reaches in glory by Christ Jesus. He will provide according to His riches, I explain to my children if I say I want to give you a gift and I come to you and give you hundred, I have given you a gift, if you don’t like it and you think it is too small, sorry o, I have already fulfill my promise. But if I say I will give you a gift according to how rich am and you know by the grace of God, I am a millionaire, then I come and give you a hundred naira because hundred naira is not according to my wealth. And o told them I use to have an uncle who is dead now, he was extremely rich, when you go to him and say uncle please give me hundred pounds, uncle please , I said I don’t have.
Uncle please give me one thousand pounds, I said I don’t have but when you go to him and say uncle give me ten thousand pounds, he would say yes, you are talking. How can you be insulting me by asking for a hundred pounds don’t you know who I am?. But the one who wants to be involve with you is the owner of heaven and earth, silver belongs to Him, gold belong to Him, the cattle upon a thousand hills belong to Him. All the crude oil all over the world belongs to Him and He says; I will supply your needs according to my riches.
There is somebody here tonight, by the time God finishes with you nobody will know you are ever poor at all. Before, He became involve in my affairs, I use to borrow money from my driver to buy petrol into my car, but things have changed. Soon as He became involve in my affairs, things have changed. Are you heavenly in debt? He can help you pay 2king4v1-7.
Halleluiah the Lord said there is a student here, exam use to bring you excitement because you know you are going to pass, He said but now when you hear exam, you will tremble.
The Lord asked me to tell you; from now on things will change for the better. Halleluiah, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, I will cause the power that be to review your case.
In 2knig 4v1-7, there was a widow was so heavily in debited, creditor wanted to sell her sons, but God put a a and into her affair, not only was the debt paid, but she never beg again. Maybe you are fairly comfortable, maybe it is your family that is improper, but because of you God can prosper the entire family. We know the story in Gen. 39 v1-5, because of Joseph, God prospered the house of Portiphar, because of Joseph alone. I want to prophesy to someone today, you will be the Joseph of your family, you know when we talk about God prospering people He can do it in various ways, don’t limit Him.
I have told you the story of a friend of mine, who was digging and unearthing a pot of gold coins and he transfer from the company of the poor completely, but I heard the story of a man was just going by the riverside and saw a bottle and when he looked at the bottle closely, he saw there is a paper inside, so he grab the bottle and opened the cork and brought out the paper and he read, whoever finds this bottle should take this piece of paper to such and such bank manager, because all my money that I have left in that bank belongs to the man who finds the bottle, in order words there was a man who was very , very wealthy who have no children, who have no relatives and when he was to die, he wrote his will and put it in a bottle, corked it and throw it in the river, whoever find this bottle will inherit everything I have.
You can say it can only happen in one life. I don’t know what is God plan for your life and I won’t try to understand Him and I have good news for somebody here tonight, in a way nobody can understand, your poverty is going to end. In touching the leper and curing him publicly, making him a celebrity overnight. Am sure it wasn’t long after that, that the man married and the one who will have died barren, am sure after that, that he became fruitful, has God stretch His hands into your life, your barrenness is over, the preacher who preached before me has prophesy that those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, He said next year you will come rejoicing with your baby.
Where I was, I said amen because that is the way it is going to be. I just returned from America, the Holy Ghostservice of Washington DC. A couple shared a testimony that got all of use laughing. Doctors already told the husband that the wife cannot have children because there was so many fibroid in the wife, she came to one of the Holy Ghost service and the word of God came that the doctors says you can’t have children but I have already done it.
So with that confidence, they went back to the doctor and say are you really sure of what you said?. The doctor said I know what I am doing, you can never have children. Unknown to the doctors, the wife was already pregnant. To cut a long story short the baby came, they rejoiced and then three months later, they were just playing and the wife became pregnant again, so the second baby came and when they were rejoicing on the second baby, four months later the third baby came. So I said suffer o!, but part of the miracle is that the fibroid even disappear completely.
There is somebody here tonight, when you are sharing your testimony next year we will all be dancing and rejoicing with you.
The Lord said there is somebody here tonight, He said your problem normally recall around this time of the year, He ask me to tell you, no more! Thank you Father, the Lord ask me to tell someone you will not weep this month.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said the history of hypertension in your family is over.
In touching the leper He puts an end to his loneness, he doesn’t have to leave in the bush anymore, he can now mix with everybody. Are you lonely?, if He gets involve with you, your loneness will be over because He said inHeb 13v5. He said I will never leave you, I will never forsake you, are you an eligible single?, my brother had already preached on that, He can provide you with a partner and if there is a mountain He has to uproot for you to get married, He will uproot tonight. At least you remember the testimony of one of my daughter.
Daddy pray for me, am getting old, I need a husband and we prayed. Some week later, she came and said, I have a problem, what is the problem? After you prayed six brothers came so how do I know which one now?, from no one to six and we prayed and God solved that problem. All of you that are of marriage anle age, I have good news for you, in the New Year, the weeding bell will ring. Now there might be some private problems in your life that may be isolating you because the reason the leper became lonely was his problem. There are some of us who are looking pretty but there are problems we cant tell anyone about but if He gets involved, He will solve the private problem.
In Ps 6 v 6-10 David said every night I wet my pillows with tears until finally God heard the cry of my weeping. There some of us who will smile in public and weep in secret because we have problem we cannot share with anyone. There are problems you cannot even share with the pastor. I have receive letter before, saying daddy pray for me, don’t ask what am asking you to pray about, when the problem is solved then you will hear my testimony. And I pray tonight atone with any problem you cannot even share in that name that is above any other name the problem will be solved tonight. I mean some of you will remember the testimony of a sister who.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said those opposing your promotion will be scattered. and is this sister came to me and say daddy please pray for me, I said what do you want me to pray about?, she said there is no need for you to know, so I said I would I know how to pray? She said just ask God to solve my problems, are the one that will solve the problems?, I said no, so she said you don’t need to know, the one who will solve the problems already knows. You just ask God to solve my problems. I said that IT IS A GOOD IDEA, SO WE PRAYED AND SHE LEFT MONTHS LATER, she came back and said now I can tell you what you prayed about. She said at the age of twenty three, I was still bedwetting.
That’s why I won’t travel with anyone; if they are going to travel I will ask are we spending the night there? If they said yes, I won’t go. She said but since you prayed, I have waited for months but my bed is dry. Anybody who has a shameful problem here tonight before the sun rises the problem will be gone in Jesus name. by touching the leper, He put an end to his bondage, He set him free, He puts an end to his bondage. Are you in any form of bondage? He will set you free. John 8 vs. 36.
Thank you Jesus, he said and said I have healed you before I will heal you again, thank you father the lord said there is someone here 2nite he said your day of joy will far outnumber your day of sorrow.
Thank you father the lord said there is someone here; he said the burning sensation in your chest has gone.
In John 8 vs. 36,the bible says that whosoever the son shall set free, shall be free indeed are you fighting some private battles? He can give you victory, because his name is the lord of host, He has never lost a battle. Are you bound by a covenant, He can cancel it tonight, because all He has to say is that let there be light and there will be light. Oh daddy you don’t understand, I am the one who voluntary join the court, I am the one who voluntary enter into the covenant, Isaiah 29 v24-26 says even lawful captive shall be set free, in other word even if you became captive and the devil can say you are his own, God says , I will set you free.
Everyone of you in every form of bondage, you shall be free tonight, I say you shall be free tonight, by touching the leper, He puts an end to his stagnation and his promotion began, when God touches you, when He puts His hand into your affair , you who have been stagnant will begin to move, I mean you know the story in Act 3v1-10, the man who was born lame, never thought he will ever work but God step into his situation, when you read the story very well you will notice when Peter asked him to stand up and begin to walk you will notice that he didn’t move, until Peter touched him, as he stretch his hand into his own hand signifying divine involvement, the man who has been stagnant, started work leaping and praising God. I have good news for someone here today, beginning from this moment your promotion will be rapid.
Halleluiah, the Lord said there is somebody here tonight, your body has been doing overheating,
the Lord asked me to tell you that has been taking care of. He said there is someone here, He said the plan of the enemy is to keep you down,
He said I will frustrate the plan of the enemy. Halleluiah, Daddy says there is someone here tonight, and I believe am that somebody except there is someone else to join.
The Lord said there is someone here the help that you cry for is on the way.
Halleluiah, the Lord said there is someone here today, He said your family can expect a visitor of joy very soon.
Halleluiah, now listen to me carefully, we have some serious cases here there are three group of people that God is talking about here, please don’t come out until I have call all the cases so that nobody will know which one you belong to, number one, He said there is someone her, He said you are present when someone was murdered and the secret has been tormenting you., it is becoming a real health problem for you , now He says He want to forgive you tonight and He want by gone to be bygone, he says you are going to come out and we will pray a simple prayer for you. Group two he says there is someone here tonight, you have this strange urge to drink any blood, and you don’t like the idea but the urge is very strong, the Lord said He want to take care of that tonight. Group three, you have this strange feeling that you might not see the new year, He says He wants to take care of that, so if you belong to any one of the three, come out together now, we won’t know which one is your own. And the Lord will take care of everything, I will only count from one to ten so that I will know when to begin to pray, one, two, three four I will praise you from everlasting to everlasting, (singing)Fiveâ€¦.I will praise you from everlasting to everlasting, (singing)Seven!I will praise you from everlasting to everlasting, (singing)Eight!I will praise you from everlasting to everlastingâ€¦., Let us praise Him from everlasting to everlasting â€¦.(singing)Nine!Thank you my Father, for those of you that are in the front, just lift your hands to the most High, that He pick you out of this great crowd, for deliverance, bless His Holy name , open your mouth and praise Him and the rest of us let us cry to God that the great delivere will set them free tonight, free from every yoke, from every bondage, that whatever it is that night be there individual battles, that God will put an end to it tonight, thank you my Father, blessed be your Holy name my Lord and my savior, glory be to your Holy name, thank you, thank you, thank you Lord, thank you my Lord, thank you Lord, Father thank you, father thank you, Lord thank you, great deliverer thank you, Father I plead the blood of the lamb over this your children, the blood that conquer Satan, let it conquer for them tonight, Father because your blood cleanses from all sin , whatever this your children has done father whatever your children could have done contrary to your will , wipe them with your blood away in Jesus name, anything they have done that is contrary to your forgive and forget in Jesus name. And strange urge for blood my father and my Lord remove tonight. with all the evil forces that have shown interest in this your children, that might be given them the impression that they won’t see the new year, let such evil force be bound in Jesus name, let such evil forces lose hold on your children, father set your children free, let them remain forever free. Thank yo my father, glory be to your holy name, for we have prayed in Jesus name. those of you in the front let me hear you shout halleluiah, you can go back to your seat now and believe that God has already set you free.What the Lord has done for me I cannot tell it allâ€¦. (singing)Halleluiah, if you appreciate what God has just done why don’t you shout another halleluiah!, you never cannot tell who you are seating next with.Now in touching the leper, he remove the curse that was upon His life, because anyone who was leprous in those days is under a curse, personal curse or generational curse, if the Lord put hois hand into your life every curses will be removed because in Galation 4v13-14 he says Christ has redeemed us from then course of the law, as it is written that curse is anyone that is hang upon a tree, that the blessing of abaraham might come upon us the gentiles, in the name of the Delivere, every curse that may still remain in your llife are cancel in Jesus name, I think I have told you the story of a sister who was barren, she came for a prayer and as I was about to pray for her, the Lord said no no , she is under a curse. And I was trying to find out what is the curse, I find out that she beat up her mother. And the mother swore in anger she said unless you did not feed from my breast, that is when you will have someone who will feed from your breast,so we said well number one you need to go to your mother and restitute, but the authority of your spiritual father is greater than your biological parent, so she did the restitution and come back and we cancel the curse . and suddenly the womb opened, everyone of you that is under any form of curse or courses, either the on e you brought on yourself or the one that you inherited, by the Authority vested in me by the Holy spirit, my the Authority on me by the church, I decree tonight , every curse will be replace with a blessing. so we can go on and on but time will not allow us and fortunately the professor has done a very good job, we found the Lord getting involve with a leper, brought healing to him, prosperity, fruitfulness, companionship, freedom blessing and I don’t need to tell you that that leper went home rejoicing, but then the question come, why will the Lord want to be involve with a leper, why did He go as far as to touch him when he could easily have spoken the Word and get Him heal.
Why would the Lord want to be involve you or with me who use to be a wretched sinner. May be we can learn a lesson from this leper, the lesson is that God knows the end from the beginning. Act 15v18, he said known unto God are His work from the beginning of the world, God knew this leper, He knew that if He get involve with Him, the leper will get involve with God, the Lord told him don’t tell anyone, I told you don’t tell anyone, the leper laughed, don’t tell anyone, je said I will tell everybody, how can you ask me not to tell anyone, they knew when I was sick, they knew when I was chased away from among men, don’t tell anyone, I will tell everybody, I will tell them what you have done for me, I will tell them in the street, I will tell them on the high way.., I will tell them every body, everybody he met on the way, he said look at me, I was the leper the Lord cleanse me, do you need a miracle? Come to the one who set me free, he told everyone, he told everyone so much that Jesus Christ couldn’t come in to the town anymore because the crowd won’t allow Him, because of the testimony of one man. So Jesus could not even sleep in His house anymore he had to sleep outside, he kept telling everyone, He is not in the city I know where He his, God never get involve without a prpose, many of us think that God perorma a miracle for the fun of it, no, no,no, He doesn’t waste His power, He is the Almighty alriht but He is also the ALL wise, the reson why many has not gotten a miracle is because God know you will not testify, He knows you wont testify, when you need a miracle, you know how to cry, when you get the miracle ,you become shy, you want me to go and stand infront of that crowd? You want God to be involve with you, are you going to be invove with Him, He healed the madman of Gadere because He knew that themad man of gadere will tell everyone. He healed bling bartmeus because He knows that bartmeus will foolw Him from that day henceforth,read joh2v1=11, they invited Jesus to weding ang His mother say please intervene!, He said leave me alone, I am the guest not the MD, THE MOTHER said just obey Him, so He said alright, I will intervene, I will have a hand in it, go and filled the pot with water, take it to the MC and it became the best wine ever, and everybody says oh what a beautiful wine, but check verse 11, why did He get involve?, so that His disciples might believe on Him, the bride and the bride groom did not even come t say thank you, so it wasn’t because of them, why did He still the storm? In Mark 11v35-41, so that the disciple coma and say what manner of man is this? That the wind and the sea obey you, do you want Him to minvovle with you? will you be involve with Hm?, that’s the question, I told you last month, nothing goes for nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing, salvation is free because somebody paid for it, if He say your soul, it is so that you can bring other people to Him, you want to be involve with Him so that He can be involve with you, oh but some of us say but I want to be involve with Him, I mean pastor don’t you understand, I am a maber of the church, I pay my tithe, what else do you want me to do? I am already involve with Him, well He will be involve with you to the level you are involve with Him, draw near to Him and He will draw near to you. take a step towards Him and He will take a step towards you. take ten steps toward Him and He will take ten steps towards you, those of you who came to the Holy communion last night, I told you about Peter, when Jesus was watching the feet of His disciple, after He has watched the feet of other disciple and He came to Peter, Peter said no you can not watch my feet, He said if I watching your feet, I wont be involve in you, Peter said is that it?, watch my leg, watch my hand, watchâ€¦ pour the whole water on me, because I want you to be hundred percent involve with me and I will be hundred percent involve with you., how many of you want to be involve with Him?, are you sure?, there are many of us who will say to the pastor. Don’t talk to me about becoming a workr, don’t you to knw who I am? I come to church, I pay my thiethe, you pray and I say amen that’s all, God will sy no problem that is how far you want to come, that’s how far we will go. But Paul says his involvement with God was such that he became a fool for Christ, phillipian 1v20-21 it said whether I live or die I am yours, how involve do you want to be involve with . I have given you several testimony here, you remember the time that God says I should call all those with backache, they came out and God said I should dance round them, I could easily have said Lord I don’t want to be a fool, but am in am hundred percent in, I dance round the, I looked like a fool, I felt like a fool .but when I fished dancing He asked everyone of them to touch their toe and their backache was gone. When we were filling the land at Ebute metta with sand dust, I told you my basket was very big. Then I was a lecturer at the university of Lagos, one day when I put my big basket on my ead, one of my former student, was driving home with his car, there was traffic jamon the road and he saw some vehicles coming into the church compound, he thought there was a way out there and he saw me carrying sawdust and he says ah oga!, I say which your oga, I am not oga before Jesus Christ. Are you ready to be fully involve with Him? Some of you still find it difficult to pay your thithe, forgetting that He his the one who provide it for you. I know someone who says how can I pay my thithe?, pator don’t you know how much Imake in a month? Millions and you want me to pay ten percent of that? And today, the company has folded up, no employee, he said he use to employ three hundred people, now nobody is employed, no money now He says if God can restore me , even if it is fifty percent I will give him, I say you are offring fifty percent now that you have nothing, when He asked for ten percent you didn’t give Him. Listen to me my brethren because in some moment now you are going to pray and whatever prayer you pray God is going to answer. If you invite Himand ask Him to be involve in me He will ask you are you going to be invove in my kingdom, it is not by force, if you say God be invove in my Life I will be involve with the building of your kingdom, whatever you ask me to do I will do and say fine I will move in, but if He moves in and you are trying to play Him , He can withdraw, the one who can put His hand in , can put His hand out, if you don’t believe me ask Samson,when He was involve with him, nobody can handle that boy. When He withdrew even an ordinary girl can toure him. Let me tell you one more story and we will pray most of you have heard me say before, one man came to me and say pastor pray for me I need breakthrough, breakthrough, so we prayed father breakthrough, few days later he came calling, and say the breakthrough has come, one rich man in Lagos called me, told me that he has this house that has thirteen flats and I want you to go and sell it for me and it doesn’t matter howmuchh ou sell it, I want this amout and the amount he says he wanted is not even enough to buy a flat not to talk of thirteen flats, so he came back and said the break through has come , I say praise God, I say that means atleast you will give one flat to God. He said why, I said thirteen flat, thithe of thirteen is more than one, he said no no , he said God knows this is my first breakthrough there will be other breakthruoghsand I will settle God from ohetr breakthrough, I smiled, I say congratulation my brother , congratulation, as the elders will say they don’t hear bad words from the priest, congratulation my brother. The foolowing day he went back to Lagos and met tha man and say am about to find buyer for the house, when I find I will come and give you the money tomorrow, the man said which house, the thirteen flats you asked me to sell and you aid I should bring certain amout, the man said me?, you think I am crazy, who told you my house is for sale, he came back to man say this is what the man said, I said that is not any of my business, go and settle with God, God said to Eli 1sam2v30, He said I said indeed that you and your fathers house will stand before me forever but now I say be far from it, He said because those who hoounr me I will honour , if you are here and you ae not yet bornagain your first step is to give your life to Jesus, so if you are here and you want God to be involve with you come andâ€¦ surrender all to you, today I am not going to wait for you, if you want you can come, if you don’t want you can stay, the rest of us I want you o make a convenant with Him and say Father, be invove with me, and I will show you that I am a true child of the living God, and I will be involve with you in every way possible, go ahead talk to the Almighty God and those of you who want to give your life to Jesus, come now, come and surrender your life to Him, come from all over the place, and say Lord I cant handle my soul, Lord take over, please help me, be theLord Lord of my life, be the Lord of my soul, I have come to surrender to you completely, come if you want to give your life to Jesus, come from all over the place, and the rest of us cry into God and say I make a convenant with you be involve with me oh Lord and I will be invove with you, I will be involve with you hundred percent for the rest of my life, I will do whatever you want done, I will witness, I will win souls, I will buid churches for you, I will go every where you want me to go, please be involve with me Lord, be involve with me oh LORD AND those of you who are coming for salvation, come, come, come and talk to the Almighty God and say father save my soul, save my soul, I want to surrender all to yu, I cant handle my life on my own, no no no I want to surrender to you, hurry up those of you that wants to give your life to Jesus Christ, urry up become my Lord, become my savior, take control of my life, ask for salvation, ask for the forgiveness of your sin He loves you, he wants you to give Him your life first, you must say bye bye to a life of sin if you want him to be invovel with you, so hurry up hurry up am waitinfg for you, hurry up am waiting for you. talk to Him now , cleanse me from my sin, have mercy on me, write my name in the book of life, be involve with me from now hence forth, be involve with me, you are the savior of mankind, save my soul, I can’t handle my life alone so I have surrender my life to you now, please Lord, take over from here, take over from here.
