In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed. Amen.
Let somebody shout halleluiah!
Let us be seated with the exemption of children of January, if you are born in January let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Father we are committing your children born in January into your our hands, January is the beginning of the year All your children born in January give them a new beginning. A new beginning of joy; of success, of promotions, of divine health, of major breakthroughs and of a closer work with you. Let it be well with all of them and let them serve you like never before. In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Praise the Lord, congratulation!
I want you to turn to your neighbor and say JOY TO THE WISE, and then go ahead and say Joy to me and conclude it by saying I will not be a fool this year.
Genesis 21 v 6 And Sarah said God has made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.
Tell your neighbor you are going to laugh with me this year; I have no doubt about it you will laugh with me this year.
Tonight we want to talk about swimming in Joy.
To swim in something means; that something has enough and to spare. You cannot swim in a bucket of water. If you want to swim, you will need either a swimming pool or a river.
In Isaiah 48 v 18 the Almighty God talked about peace like a river.
In John 6 v5 -13 the bible says after Jesus fed the multitude, the left over filled twelve baskets.
I want to prophecy to someone tonight, this year your peace will be like a river, your joy will be like a river, and the provisions of God for you; they will be more than sufficient.
In Paslm23 v 5, David said thou anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over.
Over flowing blessing shall be your portion this year. Over flowing anointing will be your portion this year.
So when we talk about swimming in joy, it means joy enough and to spear. Sarah said God has made me to laugh and the whole world will laugh with me. In other words, swimming in joy means your joy will be so great that everybody around you will share in the joy.
In Psalm 126 v 1 – 3 He said when God turned the captivity of Zion, it is like as if we were dreaming, then was our mouth filled with laughter and all the heathen saw us laughing singing, and they said the Lord has done great thing for them.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ; through you, the world will glorify God this year.
Now before you can be swimming in Joy, it means all those things that can kill your joy are silence. InRevelation 21 v 4 the bible says, God will wipe away all tears from our eye and all those things that could cause tears, he will brush them aside. He said there will be no more death; there will be no more pain.
And I am praying for someone today; death will not visit your house this year. Tragedy of any type will not visit your house this year. Anything that can cause you to weep for sorrow will not come near you this year in Jesus name.
Now joy killers are in seven major categories and I am going to deal with all seven very quickly tonight, because the Almighty God is going to deal with all of them in your life this year. As a matter of fact he is going to deal with all of them tonight.
Joy killer number one is POVERTY.
There is nothing good about poverty.
And if you are one of those who still believe you have to be poor in other to make it to heaven; you have to think about it again.
God didn’t say so, all He said is that without holiness no man shall see God, and He didn’t say without poverty no man shall see God. I know He said it will be difficult for the rich to enter into the kingdom of God, but that is the one who made riches his god.
If you are rich and you are ready to serve God with your wealth. I can guarantee you; you will go straight to heaven.
By the special grace of God, I am going to heaven and I will see many of you there and by the special grace of God I am not going to die poor. What about you? Say it loud and clear…
Poverty is a joy killer. The word of God says so. Proverbs 10 v 15 says poverty is a destroyer. He said the destruction of the poor is their poverty. Proverbs 14 v 20 says that the poor is hated even by his relatives.
You are poor and there is a family meeting and you are talking; they will ask you to keep quite let hear somebody else talk.
Everything that has been silencing you, is going to end tonight in Jesus name.
Ecclesiastes 9 v 14-15 tells us no matter how educated you are, if you are poor, you will be despised.
I remember years ago, before I was born again, when we wanted to collect money for a program. Somebody suggested that we make a professor the chairman. Everybody said what are you talking about? Is it grammar we want to talk about here? It is money that we need!
I am decreeing to every professor here and those of you who are not professor, everything silencing you; God will remove it tonight in Jesus name.
Proverb 19 v4 says that a poor man is a lonely man. It says the rich man makes many friends, but nobody wants to befriend a poor man. Everybody wants to befriend a rich man.
Whatever it is that is causing people to move away from you, they want to keep you alone, look we don’t want you in our company. That will end tonight in Jesus name.
Why? Because God has a solution to poverty, so that poverty will not kill your joy.
He said in Deuteronomy 28 v 1-2, 11-12 & 8. God said if you will obey me, I will bless you so much you will be running away from the blessing. And you will say Lord this is too much, and he will say I have not started. He said I will command the blessing to follow you and overtake you. He said you will even be lending to nations.
Now listen to me carefully; you don’t have t be a prophet to know that the world is going to have a tough time economically this year. But it doesn’t have to be your portion. The world can suffer and you will smile. He said you will lend to nation. That is going to be your portion.
If you are willing, God will make you His treasure. He can prosper you so much that you will have more than enough and then you will be able to give out to others. God can give you overflowing wealth.
It has happened before; it happened to Solomon, in 2Chronicle 1 v 15 the bible says Solomon made silver and gold like stone.
I think I told those who came to divine encounter last year; there are some people who think they are already big and they don’t even know them in Nigeria, whereas God wants the whole world to know you.
He wants your company to be household name thorough out the world.
In the year 2009, the world will begin to hear about somebody here.
If it had happen to Solomon before, it can happen to you. It happened to Abraham, it happened to Isaac and you are of the seed of Abraham.
And the bible says in Galatians 3 v 13 -14 He said God delivered us from the curse of the law, that the blessing of Abraham might come upon us the gentiles. One thing you need to note. Solomon was the richest man of his time and he was also the wisest.
TURN TO YOUR NEIGHBOR AND SAY JOY TO THE WISE. JOY TO ME, AND I WILL NOT BE A FOOL THIS YEAR!
I think I have told you the story of a brother; who said I was poor once, it was very difficult for me to even pay my school fees. But now no matter how hard I can try, I cannot stop money from flowing in. He said there is no way I can do it now; there is nothing I can do to stop money from flowing in.
I prophecy to somebody here today, very soon you will stand here and say brethren, I am not being proud, I am only glorifying God. I have reached a stage where there is nothing I can do to stop money from flowing in.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said this year, you will move from by-way to the high-way of success.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said very soon your testimony will be complete.
Number two Joy killer is SICKNESS.
There is nobody who can really fully rejoice is he is sick. You can’t sing for joy if you have stomach pain. It is difficult to shout a really big halleluiah when you have headache. As a matter of fact if you are in a crowd and you are suffering severe headache; each time they shout halleluiah, it is like hammer is hitting your head.
The devil said in Job 2 v 4 the devil said to God he said skin for skin everything that a man has, he will gladly give it for his life. He said you mean Job suffered material loss and he is not complaining. He said let me touch him; let me give him sickness you will see what will happen.
I pray for somebody here tonight, every form of sickness, every form of pain will leave you tonight in Jesus name.
In Luke 17 12 – 16, when the Lord healed the ten lepers. The one that came back was not glorifying God quietly. It was with a loud voice. He was glorifying God with a loud voice because he has known the sorrow of sickness.
In Act 3v 1-8 the man who was born lame, when God lifted him up, he wasn’t just moving this way, that way when praising God, he was walking, he was jumping, he was leaping when praising God.
In that name that is above every other name, even before February holy Host, you will already be dancing for Jesus Christ.
God has a remedy for all sickness. Palms 107 v 20 the bible says He sent his word and he healed them. 1 Peter 2 v 24 the bible say by his stripe we were healed. The healing has been waiting for you. You will collect it tonight in Jesus name.
In Matthew 8 v 1-3 He can heal even the incurable just by a touch. He will touch you tonight.
When we are talking about swimming in joy, we are talking about enough and to spare. God is not just interested in healing you tonight; he wants to give you overflowing health.
Exodus 15 v 26 He said if only you will be wise, if only you will obey me, He said I will not allow sickness to come near you at all. It will come on other people but you will not see it coming near you at all.
I said it long ago; some of you are already believing me now; When I was saying it in those days, nobody took me seriously. I said a time is coming; when any member of this church, when they go to a market place and somebody accidentally bumped on them, that fellow will be healed immediately. How many of you accept that one now? So shall it be in Jesus name
In Mark 16 v 17 – 18 the Almighty God said you will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.
In Act 19 v 11-12 the Bible says the handkerchief of Paul healed the sick. The God of Paul is your God. He has not changed. What He did through Paul, He will begin to do through somebody here tonight.
In Act 5 v 14-16 The bible ay the shadow of Peter healed the sick. That manifestation of the Holy Spirit is going to begin I the life of someone from now in Jesus name. How do I know? Because the bible says God is no respecter of persons. What he has done for Paul, he will do for you. What he has done for Peter, he will do for you.
I think it is about three years ago now, that we heard a testimony; somebody’s father was dying in a hospital in Ibadan and so the son came here and said “Please help me”. I said get me a handkerchief, and I prayed over the handkerchief. Take it to your father in the hospital he said yes sir thank you. Then he went to Lagos to go and get ready and he left the handkerchief somewhere. And the wife has been having severe pneumonia, she was sneezing the nose was running, she was just going round, when she saw the handkerchief, she took it blew her nose and her sickness disappeared.
In the main time the husband was ready and he was looking for the handkerchief. “I left it here”. After sometime the wife said “what are you looking for?”
“A handkerchief I left here”,
She said “is it a special handkerchief?”
He said “I came all the way from the camp”
She said “no wonder, anyway I have already used it.
The husband said “just bring it”.
He took it to the father in the hospital, and the father was healed also.
Every relative of yours, all those people that if anything happen to them it is going to affect your joy. When you get home lay hands on them and they will be healed in Jesus name.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said you deserve judgment, he said but I will give you grace one more time.
The third joy killer is BARRENNESS.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; the Lord said there will be many celebrations in your family this year.
Thank you Lord I receive that one, it will be my own in Jesus name.
Barrenness is a joy killer, I mean we just have to face it, it is a joy killer. Even God hates barrenness. When He saw a fig tree that should produce fruit and it didn’t produce fruit He cursed it. And if you read in Mark 11 v 12 – 20 you will see that God cursed a fig tree because he didn’t produce a fruit. In Luke 13v 6-9 he also said that a fig tree that doesn’t produce a tree, He said, cut it down. He said why is it just cumbering the ground?
In the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, I curse barrenness in your life in Jesus name.
And when you read 1Samuel 1 v1-6 you will see that it doesn’t matter how much a husband may love his wife, once in a while there will be a little bit of sorrow for the wife who has not produce.
In the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, barrenness will become a stranger to you this year.
And I may tell you one thing even though it supposed to be reserved for later.
The Lord told me that in the Redeemed Christian church of God this year, I must expect at least fourteen thousand children. At least, fourteen thousand new babies! That is why I am confident to say; in the name that is above every other name, barrenness will become a stranger; because God has the solution.
He has a solution to barrenness. In Matthew 3v 9 He said God can produce children out of stones.
In Genesis 18 v 9-14 the God of Sarah is still our God today. The God who said to Sarah “is anything too hard for the Lord? He is going to show himself mighty on behalf of someone this year in Jesus name. And if need be; like He did for Abraham, and Sarah if He has to change your name to make you fruitful, it shall be done in Jesus name.
But we are not just talking about him to make you fruitful. We are talking about you swimming in Joy.
So that He can give you children enough and to spare, in 1Sammuel 2 v 21 the bible says after God gave Samuel to Hannah, he gave her additional five.
In Palms 128 v 1-3 the Bible says your children will surround your table like the olive tree. And so shall it be for somebody here in Jesus name.
I am not sure many of you know about this man; he was asking God for the fruit of the womb and then the wife became pregnant and gave birth to set of twin. He was happy and rejoicing. He wasn’t a very rich man but he has waited for God for so long so he was happy. So the wife got pregnant again and this time she gave birth to triplet. And the man ran away from home.
That is the kind of blessing we are talking about, that will frighten you.
In the Mighty name of Jesus Christ more than enough is what God will give you this year.
Thank you father, the Lord said the greatest sorrow of someone here tonight, is that he is having problem with his eye. The Lord asked me to tell you I will repair the eye.
The Lord said, they said to someone towards the end of last year that your sun is set at last. The Lord ask me to tell you no! You are about to have a new dawn.
Joy killer number four is BONDAGE.
There is nobody who can be in bondage and be happy. No matter how hard a prisoner tries to be happy, the fact that his movements are controlled will bring him sorrow. And God knows this. In
Pastor E. A. Adeboye
IT IS MY TURN TO DANCE
6th of February, 2009
It is your turn to dance! 2 Samuel 6: 12 – 16, 23. And it was told King David saying the Lord has blessed the house of Obed Edom and all that belong to him because of the ark of God, so David went to the house of Obed Edom and brought the ark of the Lord, with gladness of heart. It was so that those that bear the ark of the Lord, that they have gone six… he sacrifices sheep and fatling, and David dance before the Lord with all of his might and David was guided with ephod. And as the Ark of the Lord came into thecity of David, Michal Saul’s daughter looked through a window, and saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord; she despised him in her heart. Therefore the daughter of Saul has no child until the day of her death.
It is your turn to dance. In Ecclesiastes 3:1- 4 the bible says there is a time for everything; a time to be born, a time to die. The bible says there is a time for everything; time to be born, a time to die, a time to sow, a time to reap. Then he said there is a time to dance. So I want you to look at your neighbor, tell him or her with all your strength,“IT IS MY TURN TO DANCE”.
Legs are very important parts of the body, very, very important part of the body. When you consider all that your legs do, you will know they very, very important. I don’t know if you have noticed that your leg is longer than every other part of the body.
How come that God made legs so prominent? Because they do a lot of this; Number one it is with your leg that you stand and when we are talking of standard, we are not just talking about physical standing alone. In fact standing is so important that when we want to say somebody is good Christian; we will say “he is a Christian in good standing”. We don’t talk about a Christian in good sleeping, or a Christian in good sitting, we talk about a Christian with good standing.
Ephesians 6: 13 say having done all to stand. Philippians 4: 1 says stand fast in the Lord. Standing is very important and we stand with our legs.
Number two we walk with our legs, when we are talking about living the Christian life, we ask people not just to talk the talk but to walk the walk. When somebody is not straight forward; we say we can’t trust the way he or she walks.
When a girl is frivolous, we will say she is of doubtful walk. When the Almighty God was talking to Abraham in Gen 17: 1 He said “walk thou before me and be thou perfect. He didn’t say sit before me, He didn’t even say lie down before me, He said walk thou before Me and be thou perfect”.
In Proverb 13: 20 the Bible says, he that walks with wise men shall be wise and the companion of fools shall be destroyed. Walking with the wise, means spending time with them. Keeping companies of fools’ means walking with them. So walking is very important and we do walking with our legs.
We use our legs to leap, to jump, to make an upward movement when we say things are going by leap and bounds, we mean they are increasing rapidly. In Act 3 v 1-8 when that lay man was healed, the bible says he was walking and leaping.
I am decreeing to somebody here today; physically by the time you are going home you will be walking and leaping. Financially as from today; you will be walking and leaping. Spiritually from this day onward you will be walking and leaping.
The Bible says in Luke 6 : 22 -23 the Bible says when you become known for Christ and they began to persecute you because of your Christian standing, He said at that time should be leaping for joy because great is your reward in Heaven.
And what do we use legs for, we use legs for running. Running means and moving forward rapidly; making rapid progress.
From now on in the Mighty name of Jesus, you will not be crawling but you will be running. In every area of your life, you will be making fast and speedy progress in Jesus name.
In 1 Samuel 17: 48 – 51 the Bible says; David ran to the battle to go and meet Goliath. He ran forward to put an end to the mountain in his life. And when Goliath hit the ground, he ran forward again to grab the sword of Goliath in other to cut off his head. He ran twice; first to knock the mountain troubling him and second time to make sure that the mountain will never rise again. In that name that is above every other name, tonight every mountain in your life will tumble down and they will never rise again.
In 2 Timothy 2: 22 the Bible says flee youthful lust, run away from youthful lust. This tells us that there are two ways to do running; you run to confront the enemies that want to stand in your way, to knock him down and cut of his head. But when you see that which can destroy you; you run away from it. The Almighty God said “resist the devil and he will flee from you. But when it come to youthful lust; He said don’t wait to fight, don’t say I am resisting. He said flee; run as if in terror. The grace to escape from what can destroy you, God will give you tonight.
Thank you father, the Lord said He is going to do some very special work on leg tonight. Particularly there is someone the soul of your feet, is feeling as if pepper rubbed in it but check now, the pain is already gone.
What else do we use leg for? For climbing, when you go through the scriptures you will find that all great men are mountain climbers. They climb mountain!
Exodus 17: 8-13 tells us that when the Amalekite came to attack Israel, Moses climb the top of the mountain. He took Aaron and Hur with him. He climbed the mountain so that he could receive anointing from the Lord, so that the enemy down below can be dealt with.
In 2 King 1: 9 -12 Elijah climb to the top of the mountain and when the King sent soldiers to go and arrest him, from the mountain top, he reign down fire on them. I am praying for somebody tonight, every mountain you needed to climb you will climb it tonight.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said you have problem sitting down and you have problem sitting down after you have stood up. He asked me to tell you that have been taken care of.
In Matt 14: 14 – 23 we see that Jesus Christ Himself was a mountain climber, anytime he has performed special miracles and he wants to recharge his spiritual battery, he will climb. Thank God for legs available for climbing. Many of you have to climb to get here tonight and by the time you go home your spiritual battery will be charge in Jesus name.
We also use the leg something else, for kicking, for stamping, for bruising, for attacking. In Gen 3: 15 the Almighty God said “the seed of the woman will bruise the head of Satan. In Roman 16 v 20 the Bible says, the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.
I want to do something by faith; just stamp on the ground for two seconds and say Satan I stamp on your head tonight.
What else do we use legs for? We use legs in keeping things under control. When we want to say we are keeping something under control we say I have put my leg on it.
In the olden days when Kings were kings; if a father tells his daughter to marry a particular person and the daughter refused. The father will take the daughter to the king and the king will ask the girl; will you marry the person that your father had asked you to marry? If the girl says no, then the king will say I put my leg on you. The meaning of that is that the girl becomes the king’s wife. That is how so many kings get so many wives in those days; things are a little different now.
But the Bible says in Psalm 110: 1 the LORD said to my Lord; sit down at my right hand until I make thy enemy thy footstool.
Ephesians 1: 19 -22 says God has raise Christ far above principalities and power and has put everything under his feet. The beauty of it is Jesus Christ is now in absolute control of everything and Ephesians 2 : 4-6 says we are sited together with him in the heavenly places, all things are under his feet and because we are sited with him in heavenly places all things are under our feet also.
Satan is under my feet, witches and wizard are under my feet, all herbalists are under my feet, every plan of the enemies I put them under my feet and you will remain in control throughout your life in Jesus name.
The Lord is healing someone who is suffering from excessive sweating; even when you are in air condition room you are still sweating, but that is over now in Jesus name.
Apart from leaping, running and moving, and jumping, and bruising and kicking, the principal reason why God made your leg is for dancing. He made your leg for dancing. He made hands for clapping. He made your mouth for shouting, but he made your leg for dancing.
And we dance for various reasons; number one we dance to express joy. Jeremiah 31: 13 the Almighty God made a promise; He said virgins shall rejoice in the dance, old and young together. He said this will happen when I turn their mourning to Joy. The Almighty God is going to turn the mourning of someone to joy tonight.
I have not told you any story now but I tell you some now. I remind you of the time when we went to Lokoja forlets-go-a-fishing.
We held a crusade in the evening and there was this highly sophisticated woman, from the dress you could see that this is not an ordinary woman, but I saw that during the crusade, when the music was on, she would dance from one end of the field to the end, she will dance back, she will dance front.
So I ask the pastor, what is about this woman? He said that woman was barren for sixteen years. She came to the convention last year; the baby on her back is the result of that visit. She is dancing to say to the Almighty God, you have turned my mourning to joy.
I decree to someone here tonight, long before the end of this year, it doesn’t matter how highly place you are, you will start dancing from the begging of the hall to the other. Everybody will say what is going on? You will say he turned my mourning to joy. If you are the one let me hear you say amen loud and clear.
We dance to express joy, we also dance to celebrate. Anytime there is celebration, there is dancing. In Matthew 14: 6 when Herod was celebrating his birthday, the daughter of Herodias danced. In Luke 15: 11 -25 when the prodigal son returned home the father celebrated and there was a lot of dancing.
I decree in the Name that is above every other name, in your family this year, there will be a lot of dancing, you will have a lot to celebrate. You will celebrate marriages, you will celebrate the name of new children, you will celebrate promotions, you will celebrate breakthroughs and those of you that think you are likely to die a tenant; when you are dedicating your house, you shall dance.
Thank you father, the Lord says there is someone here tonight; He said your principal adversary will suffer a major setback this year.
He said there is someone here; He said occasionally you feel cold inside your bone, the Lord asked me to tell you that’s over now.
We dance to express Joy, we dance to celebrate, and we dance after a victory. In Exodus 15: 20- 21 after that great victory over Pharaoh at the red sea, the bible said Miriam led the women in a dance. Thank God for women, they can dance and God will give you more reason to dance this year in Jesus name.
Men are all pretenders; they too love to dance, many at time in public they don’t want to dance. If you see them in their bathroom they dance and tonight men and women we are going to dance in Jesus name. Why? Because I can say to you in the mighty name of Jesus Christ your victory is beginning tonight.
We dance to acknowledge greatness, when someone important comes to visit a town. Like the president is visiting; we get people to dance to welcome him.
In 1 Samuel 18: 6-7 after David killed Goliath, the women gathered together to receive him with a dance. They dance to say welcome, our champion!
Halleluiah! The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said you must stop believing those who say you are a failure, He said because I have made up my mind to make you a success.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said by manipulation; they have put somebody in the position that I’ve meant for you, God ask me to tell you that the fellow will misbehave and so he will remove him.
In 2 Samuel 6: 21 David said to Micah, I am dancing for my Owner, I am dancing for the One who make me king. You know when a dog wants to show you that here comes my owner, what does he do? It dances.
I have a dog he knows every member of the family, if it is lying down and it sees any member of the family, he will wag his tail a little just to acknowledge that you are a member of this home. But when He sees me, particularly when I returned from a journey, you should see the dance.
Do you know one thing about dancing for God? When you dance for your owner, you are saying to your owner, take care of me because I am yours. David said I am dancing for my Owner, and he was able to say the Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. Let me tell you tell the truth, you don’t know what you miss because you refuse to dance for God.
This is not part of my sermon but I will throw it in all the same. Birds sing unto God and the bible says your Father who hath in heaven feeds them. Tree claps their hand and the Bible makes it clear that the wall spot where the tree is planted all its needs are met there. Dogs dance for God and they eat the same food that their master eats. That woman said the dog eat the crumbs that fall from the masters table. A crumb of bread is bread. The dog that plans to dance for its owner will eat what the master eats.
Some people will dance for God tonight and the Almighty God will feed them. A crumb from the master’s table is enough to solve all your problems. A crumb from the table of the Most High God is enough to solve all your problem. A time is coming tonight when it is will be time to dance. I beg you in the name of the Almighty God, dance! And this will be a night you will not forget throughout your life.
Why do we dance? We dance to praise God, Psalm 149: 3 He said praise His name in the dance. Psalm 150: 4says praise Him with dance. When we are dancing for God and you think that we are being childish, I pity you; because we are dancing for God. it is only one appeal I want to make tonight, when we begin to dance and you don’t like the way we are dancing, just don’t complain; because Micah complain when she saw David dancing. The bible said she danced childless. She is the only Barren woman who never had children that the bible recorded for us. So when we began to dance, just keep quiet and keep your comment to yourself.
Legs are made for standing, for walking, for leaping, for running, for climbing, for kicking, for bruising, for keeping things under control and then principally for dancing. But then the question comes; sir, how are you sure that it is my turn to dance? It is by studying David who danced. Why did he dance, what happened to him that caused him to dance? When we know what happened, that caused him to dance, then we will be able to see whether the same thing is happen to you or not.
First thing that happened to David that started his dancing, is that one day long after everybody had ignored him, he was asked for. In 1 Samuel 16: 11 a prophet came to the house and asked for David. It is a terrible thing to be ignored, it is a terrible thing to be forgotten, you know how your friend said to you when you have not seen for a very long time, and they will say you didn’t even ask for me.
When you go through the scripture, whenever God asked for someone, you know that person is going to get a miracle. Gen 18: 9-14 God asked for Sarah, “where is Sarah?” And at the end of the day, Sarah who had been barren for ninety years became the mother of Isaac. How do I know that God is going to ask for you tonight? According to Rev. 3: 29 He is not just asking for you, He is already at your door. He said behold I stand at the door and I knock. Believe it or not God is knocking at your door tonight and He is about to come in and be at home with you.
Whenever God ask for someone, that fellow is about to have a turn around.
I told you the story; I went to Obafemi Awolowo for a program. Several years ago; I woke up in the morning to return to Lagos and I heard God saying, “Go to Akure”. I say “yes Lord, but Akure is not in the direction of Lagos.
” Yes Lord” where in Akure” and He said “the house of so and so”. The so and so, left the church years ago. Why am I going his house, but I am under the authority of the most high God. So I told the driver we are going to Akure. He looked at me with surprise but he said yes sir.
To cut a long story short we arrived in the house, the fellow was in the bathroom, his wife saw me, surprise!, what are you doing here, I said I have come to see your husband, she couldn’t believe it, so she went to and meet her husband. The husband taught she was joking, what kind of joke is that what would Pastor Adeboye would be doing in this house? The wide said “Well when you come out you can ask him”.
This brother, who according to his own confession, was fully backslidden because God asked for him; he is now an evangelist in the church. God asked for him! The Almighty God is going to ask for somebody here tonight.
Number two when the dancing of David was to begin, he was not just asked for, he was sent for. In 1 Samuel 16:12 where is David? He is in the bush. Go and bring him. He was sent for. In Mark 10: 46-52 when Jesus sent for Bartimeus, we all know the result of that calling. Anytime God sent for someone, you know that the day for that fellow as come and the Almighty God is sending for you tonight. How do I know? In Matthew 11: 28-30 He has sent for you a long time ago. He said come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.
Who is He sending for? He is sending for me! Who is God sending for tonight? Tell your neighbor God has sent for me tonight.
Whenever God sent for someone, you know the day of that fellow has come and I know that your day has come tonight.
I told you the story 1979 we went to America for Kenneth Higgins program. I saw miracles, I saw the lay walking, I saw all kind of healing.
God I want this one to happen in my ministry. I was a very young pastor; I was very hungry for God. I must meet this man, so I spoke to people around. They laughed “he doesn’t see people, after the program, he will be so tired and he will lock the door. I must see this man, what I see happening in this man ministry must happen in mine too. So I wrote to him, I am from Africa, I want to see you.
All my friends were laughing when I was writing. All those who are laughing at you now, they will laugh with you by the time this night is over.
Suddenly, the message came; I think two days or so before we left. Kenneth Higgins has sent for me. You know the rest of the story, I have told you before. The people who are laughing at me, they jump and say they are going with me. At the end of the day I got what I wanted!
There is somebody here today, I want to assure you, you didn’t come on your own, God sent for you. Why? Because it is your turn to dance!
If you believe that let me hear you say amen.
The Lord said there is someone here; He said in the past when you take two steps forward, you will take three steps backward. The Lord asks me to tell you from now, it will be forward ever.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said your case is already been reconsider.
So they asked for him, and God is already asking for you. They sent for Him. God has already sent for you. Then when he arrived, he was chosen, not just chosen but chosen to reign. In 1 Samuel 16: 12-13 as soon as he arrived, God spoke to Samuel
“Arise anoint him, that is the king” it is a great thing o be chosen, Matthew 20: 16 he said many are called but few are chosen.
How many of you will be among the chosen one tonight? Wave your hand and shout Halleluiah!
But you are chosen how do I know? The bible says in Ephesians 1: 3 – 4 he said God has chosen you in Christ before the foundation of the world. It is because you are chosen, that is why you are here tonight. If you are not chosen you won’t be here. Jesus Christ said nobody can come unto me except the father draws him. God chose you before the foundation of the world. You are not the only one who heard the gospel on the day you give you life to Jesus Christ. They have heard it over and over again; they just could not decide who to give their life, because they were not among the chosen ones. Thank God I am chosen. Almighty God I thank you because I am chosen.
We are not just chosen, but chosen to reign. In Revelation 1:5-6
There is a woman here tonight, Daddy asked me to tell you that the strange movement in your womb will be replace by the movement of a real child.
Revelation 1: 5-6 says Jesus Christ has chosen us to be kings and prince, we are chosen to reign. Not only was David asked for, you are also asked for. Not only was he sent for, you are also sent for. Not only was he chosen, you are also chosen. Not only was he chosen to reign; you are also chosen to reign. Then he was anointed. 1 Samuel 16: 13, he was anointed. Jesus Christ of Nazareth became Jesus the Christ. In Matthew 3: 16-17 when the spirit descended upon Him, from that moment onward, it was not longer Jesus Christ of Nazareth, it was Jesus the Christ, Jesus the anointed one.
According to that, it means the Holy Spirit coming upon him, brought the anointing upon Him. Ephesians 1; 13says if you are a believer, you are also anointed , sealed with the seal of the Holy spirit and because the seal of the Holy spirit is upon you, then the scripture become applicable to you that says ‘touched not my anointed’. Tell your neighbor, I am anointed whether you know it or not. There is a seal on your head; the seal of the Holy Spirit. That says to forces of darkness “that this one belongs to Jesus Christ, touch him not!
Around 1975, they kidnapped a boy at Costain, they wanted to use him for ritual; took him to one jungle, and then they were presenting the others, one by one to the man in charge. When they brought in this boy, they said who brought this one here? Can’t you see the seal on his head? This one belong to the most High, and they brought the boy right back to where they kidnapped him.
From now on witches will see you and they will recognize that you belong to Jesus. And I am sure you remember one of the testimonies last year, he was kidnapped some days to his marriage. They took him to where they were killing people and just when it was about his turn to be slaughter, he began to speak in tongue and suddenly confusion started in the life of those who are there. I have good news for you; confusion is already in the camp of your enemies.
David was asked for, he was sent for, he was chosen, chosen to reign, he was anointed. Now he overcame Lion and Bear 1 Sam. 17: 34 -37 he said while I was looking after my father’s sheep, a lion came, a bear came and they took one of the sheep and I snatched it out of their mouth. And they say alright if we can’t have the sheep, we will have you. And he said “I grabbed it by the bear, smooth you and killed It”. Now if lion attacked you and God gave you victory, wont you dance. If a bear attacked you and God delivered you won’t you dance?
I have good news for you James 4: 7 says if you will submit yourself to God, you will resist the devil and he will flee from you. I have good news for somebody here today, when the evil forces see you coming, they will run. I know some of you don’t believe in evil forces. I pray that you will never encounter them. I was on a panel some years ago, we were talking about psychiatry patient and there was someone there who was a serious academician, he use t say there is not witch, no wizard, it is all in the mind. I looked at him and smiled. I said I prayed that one day a witch will not give you a slap. Send for me I will come and pray for you.
There are many who say they don’t believe in miracles until they need one. I pray for you tonight, when the evil forces saw you coming, they will run in Jesus name. I know how many years I ran from my home town because some people said they are going to eat me for breakfast. Until I met with Jesus Christ, now when I want to go home, I want every witch, every wizard to know I am coming because when light comes, darkness must disappear. Every darkness in your life must disappear tonight in Jesus name.
Halleluiah! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said those who are planning to destroy you, he said very soon they will come and ask for your help.
This one has a time limit, He said before the middle of this year all the lies of your enemy will be exposed and destroyed. David overcame Goliath in 1 Samuel 17: 45- 51 he overcame Goliath in the name of the Lord. He said against you in the name of the Lord. Now you too have the name of the Lord with you. it is written that at the name of Jesus every kneel must bow and if you have faith in the same God that David had faith in, according toMark 11: 22-23 the bible says have faith on God and then you will say to mountain, be removed and thou cast into the sea and they will obey you.
David overcame Goliath, the major obstacles to His throne. You too have the power to move every mountain blocking your way and I have good news for somebody here tonight, from now on your journey to the top will be very smooth. He overcame internal enemies. In 1 Samuel 18: 6-9 the bible said as David was retuning and the women began to dance and they began to sing, saying that Saul has killed his thousand and David has killed his own ten thousand. Saul began to eye David from that moment onward.
And David had an internal enemy; his father –in-law that wants to kill him, but he overcame. Several times the king was to spear him but he overcame. Even if you don’t have any other reason to fight, the fact that all the enemies in your mother house, in your father house in your place of work have not be able to overcome up till this moment; I think you have something to dance about. You have the promise of the most high God inMatthew 15:13 the Almighty God promises you that every plant that He didn’t plant in your home, in your body, in your place of work shall be rooted up.
The enemies in this church, this year shall be rooted up, the enemies in your marriage; this year they shall be rooted up. The enemy in your system I your body; killing you inside, tonight, this vey night they shall be rooted up. You know one of the biggest problems anybody could face is an internal enemy.
Enemies who appear to be friends, coming with you, going out with you, eating with you, knowing all your secrets, every one of them shall be rooted up in Jesus name.
You remember the story of that brother, who was sacked from the place of work without any offences at all, Unknowing to him, it was his father who said the way this boy is going he is going to become greater than him. So he decided to do something about it and then the young man came to the Holy Ghost service and the world of God came and said “there is somebody who is close to you who will die very soon. When it happens don’t be sad because he is the obstacle in your life. The following week the father died and they sent for the boy. When he arrived they promoted him. Everybody blocking your way, every plant God didn’t plant in your life they shall be rooted up.
Then David became the King of Judah
Halleluiah! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, everywhere around you there are shakings, the Lord ask me to tell you, trust me and you will stand firm.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said if only you will be faithful in your tithing and in your first fruit, He said I will give you a winning ticket.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said I will bring you in contact to those who will push you to the next level.
David became the King of Judah, you want to say sir? Are you saying I am going to become the king of Judah tomorrow? No, no. Judah simply means praise and nobody can stop you from Praising God. You too can become the king of praise, for the rest of your life, people can look at you and say when it come to that brother, when it come to that sister, praising God is what he does. David said in Psalm 34: 1-3 he said I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. It is an individual decision, he didn’t say we will bless the Lord at all time, he said I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continue to be in my mouth.
By the time he gets to verse three, he throws an invitation to others. He said magnify with me, let us praise His name together, in other word if you like join me, if you don’t like no problem, as far as I am concern, I will bless the Lord at all times and his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Those who want to become King of praise, those who want to become king of Judah let me hear you shout a big halleluiah!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said you continue t praise me and I will make sure you repossess your possession.
Someone here right now, the Lord says I will snatch back your life from the brink of destruction.
And then David became the king of Israel 2 Samuel 5: 3 this is the boy who had been anointed a long time ago and he has been running from cave to cave but now he is king of Israel, and it means his testimony is now complete. Do you know your testimony could be complete tonight? How do I know? Jesus said so in John 6: 24He said it is up to you, ask till your Joy be full, he said it is in your hand, if you wasn’t your testimony to be complete tonight, it is in your hand and I am believing God with you that no matter how the sorrow is in your heart it shall be flush out tonight in Jesus name. No matter how big the sorrow is it shall disappear tonight in Jesus name.
Then finally the ark of the covenant of God was returning home, that is why he was dancing. In 2 Samuel 6 that we read at the beginning, in 2 Samuel 6 v 12 -16 the Ark of the Covenant had been taken away. But David said this cannot be we can leave without God , God must come back home and when they were bringing the first ark, there was an accident on the way, the animal carrying the ark stubble and then one fellow trying to steady the ark had died. David said I didn’t know the ark is such a dangerous thing, so he said let’s put it in the house of Obed Edom, Obed Edom if you can die, die, put the ark there.
Then news came to David; that as soon as the ark got to the house of Obed Edom, Obed Edom began to prosper seriously, he prosper so much that the whole nation heard about it within three month. David said in that case I am going to get my ark back. So he made the enquiry; how do we get the ark back so that there will be no problem?
In that day as they are taking six steps they will sacrifice, they will take another six steps and sacrifice. At long last the ark got to Jerusalem. David began to dance, Davis said God has return to our home, at long last victory has come to my home, at long last prosperity has come into my home, at long last joy has come into my home.
I don’t know who I am talking to tonight, but there is somebody I am talking to tonight, this is one night you will never forget in your life. According to Psalm 15 v 11…
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said hold on to me and your victory will be great.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I will move you from the bottom of the group to the top.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said that which I have put in your heart to do and I will protect your family from the storms that are coming.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said Joy has been died in the family for some time, the Lord ask me to tell you it will resurrect tonight.
Psalm 15 v 11 the bible says in the presence of God there is the fullness of joy, at his right hand there are pleasure for ever more. God is here tonight, that is why I know your joy will be full tonight, and that is why I am sure you will not know sorrow again.
Let me conclude; do you know it is possible for you too to be saved tonight, because the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanses from all sins has not lost his power. Do you know that it is possible for you to be baptized in the Holy Ghost tonight? Because the Almighty God said the promise is for you. And He says you shall receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you. Do you know I t is possible for you to be absolutely victorious tonight, because the bible says if God be for you, nobody can be against you.
The Bible says you are more than conqueror because of Him that love you. Do you know that your turn to dance can begin tonight, that the only thing that can stand between you and your own season of dancing is you and you alone?
Because if you refuse to accept Him on visitation, He won’t’ force you. When the messenger got to the field and said to David, you are wanted at home. If David said don’t bother me, I am enjoying myself here, that would have been the end of the story, the Lord is saying come, come and surrender your life to me, let me save your soul, let me wash away your sin, let me become your friend, lets become partner, let me turn your mourning to joy. Let me begin to show you how to live in victory. But if you say you are not coming He won’t force you. But if you come to Him tonight, it can be your turn to dance.
So if you want to give your life to Christ, you can be coming now. If after counting you did not dock. So if you want to give your life to Jesus run forward now.
Even as you come, cry to the Lord ask Him to forgive your sin, to wash you clean in His blood, tell Him you will serve Him for the rest of your life. Save my soul, forgive all my sin… In Jesus mighty name prayed.
Savior I bless your name, I thank you for your word; I thank you for this people who has responded to your word. Accept our thanks in Jesus name. Father you promise that whosoever will come unto you, you will in nowise cast out.
They have come now, receive them in Jesus name, forgive them in Jesus name; Let your blood wipe away all their sins in Jesus name, save souls tonight and write their names in the book of life in Jesus name.
Beginning from now anytime they call on you please answer them in Jesus name and I pray that beginning from today sorrow will become a stranger to them in Jesus name, thank you my father, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
It is only one prayer I want you to pray at this moment, lift your voice to the almighty God and say father from this night onward let sorrow become a stranger to my family go ahead and talk to the Almighty God.
Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Angels are singing; you are Worthy Lord, you are Worthy Lord
Hallelujah! You are Worthy Lord; you are Worthy Lord … (worship)
Thank you Jesus, the Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said you came here hungry not for food, not for clothes, but for the power of God. He said I will satisfy you.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you; put me first and I will multiply your blessings.
Thank you Daddy, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said beginning from this very night; I will begin to use you to create waves throughout the world.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said your time for more than enough has come.
Daddy, we worship you, Kings of kings, Lord of lords, Ancient of Days, The I AM that I AM, The Unchangeable Lord, The Alpha, The Omega, The Beginning, The Ending.

The Lord reminds me to pray for you that whatever you have done this year, you will be able to do more in Jesus Name. That means next year you will still be around, by next year, you will be richer, and it will be well with you in Jesus Name.
And for all of you who are listening by television all over the world, those of you who are watching on the internet, the Almighty God will bless you also mightily in Jesus Name.
Isaiah 60 v1-3 ” Arise; shine for thy light is come, and the Glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and Kings to the brightness of thy rising.”
When the Bishop was teaching, he said God should show us our own word in His Word. I believe that Isaiah 60is the passage that God wrote for me. He is saying that I should arise, Adeboye shine, because your light is come and the glory of God is risen upon me.
To shine means; to do something excellently well. When they say a student shone in the exam, it means he passed excellently well. When you say a footballer is shining; it means he is playing excellently well.
In Daniel 6 v 1-3 We see Daniel shining among so many others because an excellent spirit was found in him. So to shine means, to excel, and I decree tonight that everyone of you from now, you will begin to excel.
To shine means therefore to succeed glaringly. To succeed in a way that it cannot be hidden, on the day that David stood on the head of Goliath, Goliath was on the ground; David was on top of him.
At that moment David began to shine in Israel. When Elijah called down fire from Heaven in the presence of a whole Nation, there was no doubt any longer who is the Prophet in the land!
In that Name that is above every other Name, from this moment onward, your success will no longer be hidden.
Thank you Father, the Lord says that there is someone here tonight; He said all that murmurs and complains in your life shall come to an end today.
To shine is not only to succeed glaringly, it is to overflow, and it is for your blessing to overflow. Isaac over-flowed in the land of the Philistine. He shone when darkness of famine covered the land, he prospered so much that a whole nation noticed it and they began to ask “how is your case different from our own?”
Very soon concerning somebody here tonight, Nigeria will begin to ask, are you the only one serving God?
To shine means to win and win easily.
Thank you Father, I told Daddy when He asked me some days ago, He said “Son, how many people will you want me to heal on this particular Friday night?” It took me by surprise, I thought for a while, since this is year 2009, I requested that Daddy will please heal 209,000 people. He has told me just now; that the healing has started. Right now the healing is starting from the head, He is healing brains, He is healing eyes, He is healing ears, the healing is on the head right now. Thank you Father!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you for the rest of your life, there will be no more negative report.
To shine; is to win easily, to win without a fight. Deuteronomy 28 v 7 The Lord said He will cause the enemies that come against you to be smitten before your face. You won’t have to fight; you will just see your enemy falling. He said when they come against you in one way; they will flee before you in seven ways. Now that is shining!
And I am saying to somebody here today, it doesn’t matter how many enemies are against you up to this moment, but as you will begin to go back home, they will begin to scatter before you.
Thank you Father, now the healing is already going down, it is already moving to the neck, it is around the neck area now, the Lord is healing lungs, He is healing hearts, and He is takings care of chest pains. Thank you my Father!
Daddy says; that there is someone here tonight, He said those who are seeking your destruction shall be driven back.
To shine means to be exceptional; to be exceptional in gifts and talents. In 1Samuel 16 v 15 -18, David shone in singing, in playing of instruments, he was so good that when the king said I need someone who can play for me, they said we know somebody who can play exceptionally.
There is somebody here tonight, from this moment onward; your case will be exceptional. There is a Student here tonight from this moment onward you will surprise your professor. There is a Minister of God here tonight, from now on your anointing will begin to surprise everybody, there is a Business Man here tonight, and from now on your success will begin to surprise everybody else.
So there are various ways in which you could shine. You can be exceptional in gratitude.
It is interesting that David, who shone in every sphere of lives; he was a king, he was a warrior, he was a prophet, he was a musician, he was a shepherd. He shone in every facet of life.
He also shone in gratitude. He was the one who said I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. He is the one who said blessed the Lord, oh! My soul and all that is within me bless the Lord. Bless the Lord oh! My soul and forget not all His benefit.
He was the one who said my heart is fixed within me, I will praise the Lord. He was the one who said I will sing of the mercy of the Lord forever. With my mouth will I make known, His faithfulness to all generations!
You can shine in gratitude. That is one area where it is easy to beat everybody else; because many people don’t want to be grateful to God, they just want to keep on complaining. So your case can be exceptional there. You can begin to show the rest of the world from now on, that you are more grateful than everybody else.
For example, right now your Hallelujah can be loud than anyone around you.
It is interesting that those who shine in gratitude always get more miracles than others. The Leper who was grateful, not only was he healed, he was made whole.
Once I discovered this secret, my life change completely. I am constantly thankful to God. That is why He keeps doing more, more and more for me. So you can begin to shine in gratitude.
Number two, you can begin to shine in Faith. Many people claim that they believe God but they don’t really have faith. The Bible is full of example of those who shone in faith.
Talking about the woman with the issue of blood; she shone in faith by simply saying I am not asking Jesus to pray for me, I just want to touch the helm of His garment.
There was the Centurion who shone in faith. Jesus was going to his house to pray for his sick fellow and he said you don’t need to come, send your Word only.
How many of you will begin to believe, that long before I finish preaching; the word of God that is coming to you will bring your healing to you? How many of you believe that? Let me hear your Amen loud and clear!
You can begin to shine in faith. I have told you the story of somebody who wrote to me and said, I don’t need to see you, just read my letter, I know if you read this letter, I will receive my miracle.
I read the letter in a car and I was dancing for joy; because I know, with that kind of faith miracles must happen.
So I was not surprised when some weeks later, I got another letter from the same fellow saying I know you read my letter, because I have gotten my miracle.
There is somebody here today simply because you came; you will receive your miracle also.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone one here tonight, He said your time for complete testimonies has come.
Daddy says that there is someone here tonight; He said I will manipulate those in authority in your favor.
The healing virtue is now working in the stomach area; He is working on livers, working on wombs, working on kidneys, working on intestines and working in the stomach areas right now.
Hallelujah! The Lord said there is some one here tonight, He said you have known glorious Days, but the Lord ask me to tell you; better Days are ahead!
Daddy says there is some one here today; He said those who threw you into the Den of the Lions would soon replace you there.
Hallelujah! The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I will restore joy and harmony to your home.
Please listen to me carefully, the Lord wants to do a great work of deliverance at this moment, I am going to mention some cases; some of them are rather scaring, but the Lord wants to help you that is why. The sermon is good but at the end of the day, God wants to help you.
Don’t come until I have mentioned all the cases, so that nobody will know which one is your own case.
The Lord said there is a woman here tonight, He said you are responsible for the death of your first husband, and you know without any doubt that unless God intervenes you will die before the end of this year, you know it yourself. But He said because you are here tonight, He wants to forgive and He wants to cancel the death that is the first one.
The Lord said there is another fellow here tonight; that you have this insatiable thirst for human blood, that whenever you can’t find human blood from another person to drink, you even cut yourself so you can suck your own blood. The Lord asked me to call you forward so He can set you free.
Then the Lord said there is a woman here tonight, that when you were young in order to prevent pregnancy you made a charm; now you wants to be pregnant and you don’t know how to reverse the charm. The Lord said if you come forward tonight, He will help you reverse the charm.
Then the Lord said there is someone here that constantly you have been dreaming, seeing yourself surrounded with feaces and maggots, the Lord said you yourself knows that this is not a very good omen. The Lord said if you come tonight, He will set you free.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said for quite some time now, it appears you are about to collide with somebody invincible. The Lord asked me to tell you that if you come forward tonight, He will take care of that invincible fellow.
Now if your case falls within those five, come forward very quickly, I don’t have time to waste tonight, it is almost 1 o’ clock, so if you I count from one to seven and you didn’t come, I will continue and the rest is your own.
But let me give a warning, because I receive a phone call from somebody about a month ago; he said “you made a special call, I should have come forward but I didn’t, please pray for me now” and I told him,” I am not the Holy Spirit, the time when the Holy Spirit wanted to do what He wanted to, you didn’t not come out, the time is past and there is nothing anybody can do about it anymore”.
If your case is one of the five cases that I have mentioned this is the time, if this time passes, even tomorrow morning will be too late. So I am counting now one, two, and three….. If you thought I imagined it sit down, don’t bother yourself.
If you think this is just one of those Prophets, prophesying what he likes, sit down don’t bother to come. But if you know that there is no way I can possibly know these things except if God has not revealed them to me, you better run forward, four, five.
And as you come begin to cry to the Almighty God, and say Father have mercy on me, you know my problem and you have picked me out of these crowd, have mercy on me. Set me free tonight, I am sorry for everything I have done wrong.
When I killed I didn’t know any better, I am not the one who wants to drink the blood, it is just that I couldn’t help myself, have mercy on me. I was a fool to say I don’t want to be pregnant, Father now I want children.
Every plan of the enemy to surround my life with corruption, Lord, help me, Lord help me. All those evil forces, all those invincible forces, milling around me, help me Lord, help me, help me Almighty God. Six…, oh Lord have mercy on your children.
Thank you Jesus, blessed be your Holy Name. Thank you Lord, Glory be to your Holy Name… In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.
I am going to pray for you now, those of you who are still on the way; God sees that you are already coming so the prayer will meet you there.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus, what a wonderful God you are, what a wonderful God you are, accept our thanks in Jesus Name. Because it has pleased you to mention these special cases, please Lord, because your children have heard and they have responded be merciful unto them in Jesus Name.
Everything they have done wrong no matter how horrible, please forgive in Jesus Name. Every appointment with death Lord God Almighty, postpone it in Jesus Name. And every evil force that will cause anyone to want to drink human blood, I decree that such forces will leave these children in Jesus Name. Every evil plan of the enemy to surround your children with corruption, my Father and my Lord destroy in Jesus Name.
My Father and my Lord I pray that all evil forces that have shown undue interest in these your children I decree that they all be sent out in Jesus Name.
I decree that they will lose their hold on these your children and let them go in Jesus Name and every charm that they had made that is contrary to fruitfulness, I decree that such charm be destroyed now in Jesus Name.
Thank you my Father, Glory be to your Holy Name, in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed. It is done you can go in peace now, in Jesus Name.
Let the rest of us clap for the Almighty God.
You can shine in prayer; many people don’t want to pray, so it is easy for you to pray if you stand out if you decide to stand out in prayer. All the people we read about in the Bible who shown, are prayer warriors.
Paul said I pray in tongues more than you all, in 1Corinthians 14 v 18 Daniel prayed for twenty one Days at a stretch on one occasion. You can shine in prayer.
Years ago, a friend and I, we prayed continuously for thirty six hour, with just short break to go to the toilet and come back. I was happy I said I have arrived. Thirty six hours prayer! But God loves me because that very week I came across a book that told me about a man who prayed nonstop for thirty Days and thirty night. That challenged me and I said God I would move forward, you can shine in prayer. Don’t just pray for two, three minutes and say you have prayed.
You can shine in power, you can shine in anointing, the Bible says in Psalm 23 v 5: It says “thou anointed my head with oil, my cup runneth over”
I am believing God for somebody here tonight, after tonight’ service, you will begin to shine in the power of the Almighty God. You can shine in Holiness; you can shine in Purity, while others are polluting themselves. You can make up your mind. No! I will be an example of Purity an example of Holiness. Others can do it, you can tell them “no I am going to shine”, I will show you that a true child of the Living God can live a Holy life.
Joseph shone because he refused to yield to temptation:
I remember when I was a lecturer at the University of Lagos, one day I wrote a letter, personal letter and I wanted to take an official envelope of the university to post the letter, and my hand refused to move. And God spoke to me and said, “That envelope is for official letters, not for your personal letters” And I am talking about thirty years ago, “so I said to the Almighty, “God how much is a packet of envelope?” and He replied me that “since you know that the envelope doesn’t cost much, go and buy your own”.
I am believing God for somebody here tonight, your Holiness, your Purity will be glaring to everybody.
By now the healing virtue have gone all the way down, He has already taken care from head to toe, it is already covering you down now.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you, you will never lose control again.
Hallelujah! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you, He said “be assured you will be triumphant”.
Daddy, says there is someone here tonight, He said the key is already in the lock, your door is about to open.
So when we say, shine! You can shine in several things; you can shine in Gratitude, you can shine in Prayer, you can shine in Anointing, you can shine in Purity, and you can shine in Obedience.
The areas where shining comes is the area where others have problems; the stars come out at night, it is when darkness covers the ground that people will notice stars.
Majority of people don’t want to obey God, so you can shine in obedience. Your obedience can mark you out from other people.
Occasionally God has somebody to do something that may appear foolish, but if you obey Him completely according to His word, He will cause you to shine.
For example, if you read Joshua 6 v 1- 20 God said to Joshua; He said tell your people to go round the wall of Jericho once for seven Days.
On the seventh day, go round seven times, throughout the period don’t say a word but on the seventh day shout.
That is not how to fight wars, soldiers! Just going round walls like dumb people, that is not how to do things oh God! But because they did what God asked them to do they had a great victory. The victory of somebody is going to be great tonight. So you have an idea of how to shine.
So what do we mean by arise? Because He says arise and shine. Arise simply means get up, spring into action, begin to put into action what you already know.
Thank God the Bishop had already given a beautiful lecture on that. Nothing happens except somebody makes it happen, or put in another way, nothing works except somebody works it. Your talent no matter how great will remain dormant unless you use it. You will not get anything from God if you are a hearer only and not a doer of the Word.
If He says give and you shall be given and you refused to give, you will not receive.
If He says pay your tithes; I will open the windows of Heaven over you, and you say don’t mind Him. No problem He will close His Heavens and you will retain your tithe.
If you are not willing to go into action, nobody will see your light. I am praying for everybody here tonight, that the grace to be a doer of the word, God will give it to you in Jesus Name.
Let me share just one more thing with you and I will get out of the way because I know God is very anxious to bless you.
Everyone in the scripture, that shone brilliantly, work by one big principle.
And if you don’t remember any other thing, remember this one; fortunately the Bishop has already said something along that line. He didn’t see my note, I didn’t see his own.
Nobody can shine without light; there is no light without fire. You may not see it but inside the globe there, there is something that is burning. There will be no light without fire and there can be no fire without fuel. No fuel, no fire means no fuel, no light. If all of a sudden now the diesel in the generator working should dry up, everyplace here will go into darkness immediately.
Everyone who wants to shine has to pay for shining. Shining does not come free, diesel cost money.
The Bible says in Genesis 26 v 1- 14, that there was famine in the land and Isaac sowed in that land and by the end of the year he began to shine among the nations.
In 2Chronicle 1 v 6 – 12, Solomon shone above all kings before him and after him because he sow a seed. He did something that nobody has ever done before, and so he became what nobody has ever been before.
Take my advice because of the great love that I have for you, sow a seed towards your shining. This is not the usual offering, I am not about to take an offering, they have taken that. I am teaching you a principle that is going to make you rise above your fellows. Decide within yourself that you are going to sow a seed towards your shining.
It is not necessarily something you have with you, It could be something you will bring to God later, it could be anything that is precious to you that you will attach your shining to. You sow that seed and expect the Almighty God to turn on your light.
In conclusion, nobody can shine if he is covered in sin. I want to round up but God wants me to tell you one or two things before I round up; He said I should tell you; your Days in the valley are over.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said the river of evil that is flowing in your family will dry up tonight.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said you will soon become a symbol of the faithfulness of God.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I will make room for you at the top.
Hallelujah Father! He said there is someone here tonight; He said very soon your testimony will be; my God is great.
Now I can conclude thank you Father Hallelujah! You cannot shine if you are covered in sin. Thank God for all of you who have given your lives to Jesus Christ tonight! Please don’t go back in sin. Those of you who are already born again, you are going to cry to God for ability to live Holy.
It is in Holiness that you can begin to shine. You are going to pray a very short prayer now before we move to the next thing God wants us to do and let me hear somebody shout a very big Hallelujah!
You see later on in the night I am going to pray for you, suddenly you will just find yourself beginning to shine, so you are going to pray before I come to that at all.
Say Father; don’t let sin put out my light, talk to the Almighty God… in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.
And then we are going to pray one more prayer loud and clear, say Father: in every facet of life let me begin to shine, let me shine in the home, shine in the church of God, shine in my city, shine in my state. Shine in my country, let me begin to shine, let me shine forever oh Lord! ….in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.
As many of you have made up your minds that from now on, you will be obeying God completely, you will be living a life of Purity and Holiness, lift up your hands, I want to pray for you now:
In Name of Jesus, I commit all these children into your hands, you are The Light of the World, but you turn to the disciple and say you too are the light of the world. I pray for all those who are here tonight, true children of the living God, send them your Light in Jesus Name.
Let the fire of the Holy Spirit come upon them in Jesus Name; put an end to darkness in their lives in Jesus Name. Let them begin to shine for you in Jesus Name. Don’t let them ever know darkness again in Jesus Name, let them begin to succeed glaringly in Jesus Name. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.
Put your hands together for the Almighty God, Amen. God bless you!

Genesis 15 v 1& 5 we want To Talk about BLESSED LITTLE STARS.
“After these things, the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. And he brought Him forth abroad, and said, look now towards heaven, and tell the stars if thou be able to number them: and he said unto Him, so shall thy seed be”
The promise of the Almighty God to Abraham is not only that he will be many; it is that his seeds will be as Stars. Everyone who is a born again Christian, is of the seed of Abraham. And so, they’re destined to be Stars.
Isaiah 8 v 18 tells us that both I and the children that God has given me are for signs and wonders. I will be a Star. My children will be Stars. If you believe that say it loud and clear so that God can hear you.
Both I and the children that God has given me are for signs and wonders. And when you look at the seeds of Abraham; you will see that each one was a Star in his own generation.
When you read Exodus 3 v 1 -15, you will see that Moses of the seed of Abraham was born to be a National Deliverer. When you read 1Samuel 3 v 19 -20, you will see Samuel of the seed of Abraham was born to be a National Prophet. When you read 1Samuel 16 v 1-13, you will see David of the seed of Abraham, was born to Reign. When you look at Luke 1 v 26 – 33 you will see Mary of the seed of Abraham; she was born to be the Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
When you look at Luke 8 v 1- 3, you will see Mary Magdalene of the seed of Abraham; she was born to be a Divine Treasurer. When you read Mark 5 v 1 -20, you will see that in spite of everything that the enemy tried, the mad man of Gadarenes was born to be a National Evangelist. And that was what he became. When you look at 1Corinthians 1, you will see Saul of Tarsus of the seed of Abraham, he was born to be an Apostle.
None of the seed of Abraham was born to be a useless fellow. I decree to you tonight, none of your children will be a useless fellow. Among the children who are here tonight, there will be Presidents, there will be Governors, among the children who are here tonight, and there will be National Prophets. Among those who are here tonight, there will be those who will be Divine Treasures, there will be those who will become World Evangelists, there will be those who will be General Overseers, if you receive all these let me hear you say Amen loud and clear.
All seeds of Abraham are destined to be Stars. You are of the seed of Abraham; you are destined to be a Star. You and your children are for signs and wonders, so your children are destined to be Stars.
Unfortunately however, not all fulfilled their destinies; it is not everybody whom God wants to be great will be great. When a boy is born; he is a Potential Father. When a little girl is born; she is a Potential Mother but one way or the other, not all boys will end up as fathers, and not all girls will end up as Mothers. That is why I ask you to pray that prayer; that none of your children will be barren in Jesus Name.
Many at times, it is because the children themselves misbehaved. Like the children of Eli. Many at times, it is because the father or the parents failed on what God wants them to do.
So tonight we are going to be talking in depth about The Responsibility of Parents. But even before we get to that stage, we say we want to talk about Blessed Little Stars. Any child that is blessed, there is no way that child will not fulfill his/her destiny, that is why even at this stage I want to announce, every child here tonight, you shall be blessed. Every child here tonight, beginning from me because I am a child of God, every child here tonight shall be blessed.
Blessing is a very powerful force. As a matter of fact the two most powerful forces in the world are Blessing and Curses. Let’s look at the Power Of Blessing. We will not talk about Curses tonight because we are here to be blessed and if there is any curse upon any of you, in the Name that is above every other name, that curse will be changed to blessings tonight in Jesus Name.
If you look at Genesis 12 v 1 -3, Abraham was just an ordinary person among idol worshippers; God pulled Him out and began to bless him.
He just blessed him, and blessed him, and blessed him! By the time we get to Genesis 24 v 34-3 the result of the blessing was evident.
The servant of Abraham said; “God has blessed my master greatly and He has made him rich in everything; in silver in gold, in cattle, in all kinds of things”. The God, who blessed Abraham, will bless you and your children tonight.
In Genesis 22 v 15- 18, God blessed Isaac. He said I will bless Abraham but Isaac I will multiply you. By the time we get to Genesis 26 v 12 – 14 by the effect of that pronouncement of God, we find that Isaac became so prosperous that a whole nation envied him.
There are children here tonight, when God begins to bless you, the whole nation will begin to envy you. Mark my word among those of you who are here tonight, a day will come when people will say are you the only one serving God? If you receive that, let me hear your Amen loud and clear.
Now when you now go to Jacob in Genesis 27 v 26 -29, I want to read that one to you because the blessing pronounced on Jacob there, I am receiving every one of them for every child here tonight.
Genesis 27 v 26 -29 “and his father Isaac said unto him, Come near now, and kiss me, my son. And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment, and blessed him, and said See, the smell of my son is as the smell of a field which the LORD hath blessed: Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine: Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be Lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother’s sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee and blessed be he that blesseth thee”
Let’s take this blessing pronounced here one by one, so that you will know what you are going away with tonight.
First of all, the father said, “God give thee of the dew of heaven” We can examine that for one hour. But let me just take one point of that because of our time.
The father of Jacob said: May God send you help from above.
And I am saying to somebody here today, right from the throne of Heaven, the Almighty God will send help unto you.
And then he said “Let God give you of the fatness of the earth” Everybody knows that when you sow on a fertile ground, the harvest will be great. But let’s summarize everything on that one; the father of Jacob said, in addition to God sending you help from heaven, May God send you help from beneath.
And I am saying to somebody here tonight. Every child that is here tonight, God will send help to you from underneath the ground.
He said “God give you plenty of corn and wine” in other words, he is saying you will never know hunger.
I am saying to someone here tonight, for the rest of your life, you will enjoy abundant. And then he went further, he said “let people serve thee” What a great blessing! He is saying here wherever you go; you will find favour with people, human beings will be eager to help you. If I were you, I will say Amen to that one.
And then he went further, he said “let nations bow before thee” What exactly does that mean? It means everywhere you go in the world; doors will begin to open unto you.
Not too long ago, one of my children went to Indonesia to go and work, now I have never been to Indonesia, I will be there soon.
When he got there he started a little house fellowship. The house fellowship began to grow; very soon it became a Church, a big Church.
That is in a nation where if you say you are a Christian, they can cut off your head. But he started a Church and the Church started growing. Then he did something interesting; he applied to the government for registration. Approval: so that he can conduct service without hindrance.
The people there thought that even if they are going to look at his application at all it will be up to two years. But they don’t know that he is blessed. They don’t know that it is already written concerning him; ‘that nations of the world will begin to open unto him’ within two weeks approval has come; signed by the president himself.
There is somebody here tonight, everywhere you go in the world, as soon as you knock at a door, doors will be opened unto you.
And then the father went on and said “be Lord over your brethren” Now this is a very strange blessing: because all the brethren of Jacob are also of the seed of Abraham. They are also to be Stars, but you see the Bible says stars differ from Stars in Glory.
“Be Lord over thy brethren”, means; among equals you will excel. When they bring great people, you will be greater than all of them. Who am I talking to tonight? Let me hear you say Amen loud and clear.
And then he went further and said “let thy mother’s son bow down to thee” now that is a very serious blessing. The only way I can put it so that you will understand is that you will be Joseph of your family.
All of them will be great, because they are your mother’s son but you will be the greatest of them all. I think you should tell your neighbor, Daddy is talking about me tonight.
And he didn’t stop there he said “curse be everyone that curses thee” you know what that one means? All your enemies are in trouble!
That is why I always tell my children. When anybody is fighting me, I don’t need to retaliate because it is already written; everyone that curses me is in trouble. If you believe that all your enemies are in trouble. Shout a big Hallelujah!
And then he went further to say “blessed be he that blesses thee”, which means all your friends, are in for a wonderful time.
All those who want things to be well with you; it will be well with them. All those who rejoice when you succeed; they will succeed. All those who want you to reach your goal; they will reach their goal also.
These are the blessings pronounced on Jacob. What is the result? Genesis 30 v 43: He said the man increase exceedingly; exceeding greatness. In that Name that is above every other name, because you came here tonight, you will be great exceedingly.
Now we are talking about the power of blessing. Now you know the story of Jacob and Esau, by the time Esau came from the farm. Jacob had already cornered all the blessings we have been talking about. So Esau cried to his father “Don’t you have at least a little blessing left over?” a left over blessing. Just a little one, just give me a little one”.
The father said “alright, the left over you can have it” Esau got a left over blessing.
But by the time we get to Genesis 32 v 3 – 6 The Bible tells me that that left over blessing had won so much for Esau; that he had four-hundred body guards. Even the President hasn’t got that many.
When his brother Jacob met him in Genesis 33 v 8 – 9, and said I have brought you gifts so that you can forgive. What is it that Esau said? He said I have enough. I don’t need your gift, the left over blessing; was enough to make me have enough. I decree tonight for the rest of your life, you will never look to somebody again before you eat. You will always have enough and there will be a left over in Jesus Name.
Hallelujah! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you; don’t lose hope I am working on your case.
Now whenever God blesses somebody, that fellow is blessed. Whenever God blesses somebody, nobody can curse that fellow.
In Numbers 23 v 8, a prophet said; who has tremendous power when he speaks it happens. He said “how can I curse he who God has not cursed”.
All the witches and wizard in your village, all the herbalist, let them combine their powers; from now on you will always be blessed.
When God blesses someone, that fellow cannot be curse and no man can reverse that blessing. In Numbers 23 v 20; the prophet said “I have received a commandment to bless. He has blessed, I cannot reverse it” Do you know the blessing that I have been pronouncing on you tonight! Nobody can take them away from you anymore. Why? Because whenever God speaks, it is done.
The moment He speaks, it is done. He is the one who said, in Isaiah 54 v 17 He said there is no weapon fashioned against you that will prosper.
He is the one who said in Revelation 3 v 7 He said when I open, no man can shut, God had already decreed, and that everywhere you go in the world. Doors will open unto you and nobody will be able to shut the doors.
However, anyone that God curses, that fellow is cursed. There is nothing anyone can do, if it is God who cursed him, that is a settled case.
I have told you before, that if your parents, your natural parents cursed you, and you run to your Pastor, who is your Spiritual Parent, he can use his superior authority to remove the curse.
If your Pastor curses you, and you run to the General Overseer who ordained him, he can use his superior authority to cancel the curse.
If the General Overseer, curses you, maybe if you fast and pray for thirty days and thirty nights the Almighty God may looked down from Heaven and say okay I will talk to my son, maybe later he can remove the curse.
But if God curses you where will you run to?
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, who has been suffering from epilepsy, the Lord asked me to tell you no more from tonight.
The Lord said there is a woman here; He said the fire that has been burning in your womb has been put out.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said you have been feeling a deep pain inside your eyeball, the Lord ask me to tell you he has taken care of that one.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said “they said that they will see your end”, the Lord asked me to tell you, that you will see their end.
In 2Samuel 12 v 1 – 10 David did something terrible; he committed adultery, killed the husband, took over the wife and pretended as if nothing has happened. God sent a prophet to him. He made a pronouncement, he said David, because you have done these; “he said the sword will never depart from your house”
That is why you will find in Israel today, they are always fighting. When they say everything is okay today, by tomorrow, another fighting has started, because there is a curse hanging over the house of David.
I pray for you tonight, every curse that is hanging over your families, shall be destroyed by the anointing in Jesus Name.
Now I want you parents to listen to me now very, very carefully. Proverbs 26 v 2 says; the curse causeless shall not come. Nobody can curse you, unless you have done something worthy of a curse.
Even the elders have a saying: “they say if somebody pronounces a curse on you because you are poor, the curse is not going to work” There must be something that a curse will hook unto before it began to work.
In the same manner a blessing causeless shall not come. That is why when Isaac wanted to bless Esau, he said go and get me a kind of meat that I like. Let me enjoy myself so that I will have a reason to bless you from the bottom of my heart.
In Deuteronomy 28 v 1- 2 God said, “If you will hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all that he commands you” then he said the blessing will not only come upon you, they will overtake you.
Therefore parents, if you want the children that you are rearing to be blessed, take note of the following things that I am about to share with you.
Proverbs 22 v 6 It says train up your child in the way he should go, when he is old, he won’t depart from them.
Proverbs 29 v 15 warns you, don’t leave your children to themselves, because the children you leave to themselves will bring you shame. If you say well I am busy, I am trying to make money and you don’t have time for these children, they will bring you shame.
The elders have a saying: they say “they ask you to train your child, you said you are building your house, the child that you did not train will sell the house that you built” Don’t leave your children to themselves, train them.
And when we are talking about training, we are not just talking about going to university or college; we are talking about proper training. When they are doing something wrong; rebuke them loud and clear.
1Samuel 2 v 22 -25, when Eli heard that his children were not doing well, he rebuked them half heartedly.
Listen to me parents, I am a parent myself, as long as I have responsibility for my child; responsible for food, responsible for clothes, responsible for accommodation, responsible for school fees. I must have the authority that goes along with the responsibility. If you are living under my roof, or the accommodation that I provide, you are eating my food, wearing my clothes, I am paying your school fees, when I ask you to sit down; you must sit down.
The authority that will take care of the responsibility must be given to the man who has the responsibilities.
Now before I go to some details. You children listen to me also. In Proverbs 4 v 10 -12 it says, hear me my son, and your years shall be many, if you listen to your parents you will live long.
Because where you are now, they have been there before. Many of us didn’t have the opportunities you have; we didn’t get people to correct us, the way you are being corrected. And so we make mistakes and we are still paying for some of those mistakes.
I know you want freedom, let me tell you the truth: true freedom is found in submission to authority.
None of my senior pastors dare travels without getting permission from me, why? I want to know, where they are so I can be praying for them there. If he likes, he can go without telling me.
If I think you are in Sokoto and you are in Egypt. Anything that happens in Egypt is not my concern; I am only concerned with what is happening in Sokoto.
When your parents say don’t do this, don’t go this way, it is for your protection. So that it will be well with you, so that you will not make the mistakes that they have made. And I pray for all of you children who are here today; all the scars that your parents had, you will never have any of them in Jesus Name.
Thank you Father, the Lord says there is someone here; He said there has been this strange movement up and down your throat. The Lord asked me to tell you, that thing is gone now.
The Lord said there is someone here; He said if you trace your problem, it goes back to the day of the introduction before your wedding. The Lord asked me to tell you that He has taken care of that.
Parents I want you to emphasis the following to your children from now on:
1. Teach them total obedience. Emphasis it, don’t be afraid, what kind of parents will you be if you are afraid of your child? The elder said “the okra can never be taller than the farmer; if it is taller, the farmer will bend it down; come down here I planted you” The Bible says to obey is better than sacrifice. Exodus 15 v 26 says if you will obey God completely, He will make sure that you are healthy. Teach your children to be completely obedient.Deuteronomy 28 v 1 -13 the Bible says if you will obey God completely then you will be above only and you will never be beneath. Explain this to your children!
2. And children listen to me; Exodus 20 v 12 says “Honour your father and your mother that your days may be long” The only way you honour your father and your mother is by obeying them completely. Several people have lost their destiny because they fail to obey their parents. Teach your children to be totally obedient.
3. Teach them to avoid evil company; it is not every friend that you should allow to be seen around your child at all. 1Corinthians 15 v 33 says evil communication corrupts good manners.
I know you will say this is the age of freedom and you see your son, his friend is wearing earring (boyfriend). And you say well it doesn’t matter, it is fashion. Evil communication corrupt good manners!
Proverbs 1 v 20 says the companion of fools shall be destroyed. He says those who work with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed. The English man says; “show me your friend and I will tell you who you are” Because they say; “birds of the same feather flock together”
My own children know the kind of people they will bring near my house at all. I don’t care how liberal minded you have become. I have a responsibility over my own child.
I told the Pastors some time ago, when I was younger, and everybody is playing outside, my mother will say to me, Enoch sit down, study your book and I will say to her, what about others, they are playing.
My mother will say; “others are not my business, you, you Enoch you are my business, sit down there”. Today I thank God for my mother, because she took me by the hard hand. And by the grace of God I am what I am today.
I pray for all you children, those of you who will obey your parents you will reach the top in Jesus Name.
If you read Psalm 1 v 1-3 The Bible tells us that those who want to be blessed, they must stay away from certain people. They must stay away from the ungodly; they must stay away from sinners. They must stay away from scorners. The word of God is clear. It is not everybody that can be your friend, some of these people are not going anywhere and you are going to the top. And you want it to be well with you, so you must choose your friends correctly and your parents will tell you. We don’t like this one, you must stay away and you must obey.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said your days of frustration are over.
Thank you my Father, the Lord said there is someone here today, who is a devoted worshipper, He asked me to tell you, He said I will spread my healing wings over your family.
Thank you Jesus, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said you will soon attend the funeral of the one who wanted to kill you.
4. Teach your children to pursue wisdom, Proverbs 4 v 7 – 9: Says wisdom is the principal thing. He said, with all your getting, get wisdom. Make sure you get understanding; in other words, teach your children not to be fools. There are several ways of knowing a fool. One of the ways of knowing a fool is; that a fool says there is no God, another way of knowing a fool according to elders, is that whatever the wise man says, it is the mouth of the fools that we hear it.
Tell your children to pursue wisdom, because wisdom is greater than strength according to Ecclesiastes 9 v 16and; because wisdom is the application of knowledge, make sure your children acquire knowledge.
Don’t let your child spend all his days watching television and playing games, they must study. Nobody passes without studying. And it is how hard you have studied that is going to determine how high you will go.
When I was a teacher at Ondo Boys High School in 1963, I was given thirty- five periods a week to teach. And there was another tutor there who happened to be a graduate and they gave him twenty one periods to teach and he was earning four times, what I was earning.
And he was grumbling. He said you people you want to work me to death?
So I went to him “Sir, you are teaching twenty one periods, I am teaching thirty five, you are earning four times what I am earning and you are complaining” He drew me close and patted me on the head, he said “my boy you don’t understand”, he said “I am being paid for what I have already done; what is in my brain that is what I am paid for”.
That is the day I decided I will go to the university whatever it will cost me. If you don’t study, if you don’t pursue wisdom… the elder have a saying; “you didn’t study and you heard when they were calling for potters and you didn’t answer quickly, what are you going to eat?” I pray for all the children who are here today, none of you will end up as messengers in Jesus Name.
Proverbs 22 v 29 Says if you work hard, you will stand before kings. If you work hard, it doesn’t matter how you started, it doesn’t matter how poor your parents are, if you work hard, one day you will be standing before kings, everyone of you here tonight, in that Name that is above every other name you will be sitting with Presidents in Jesus Name.
5. Teach your children to seek God, Ecclesiastes 12 v 1 He said remember now thy creator in the days of thy youth. The best time to remember God is when you are young. The best time to seek God is when you are young.
Some people say no, I will begin to seek God when I have made it. You can never make it without your maker. Without the assistance of God you cannot make it. God said in Proverbs 8 v 17 God said I love them that love me; they that seek me early shall find me. Begin to seek God early because Hebrews 11 v 6…
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said that which is causing you sleepiness night has already been dealt with.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said you have abused His grace before He said but because you came tonight, He will be gracious to you one more time.
Thank you Lord, the Lord said the enemy has said that if we cannot handle the trunk, we will deal with the branches. The Lord asked me to tell you, I will take care of the trunk and I will take care of the branches.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said expect at least one beautiful surprise very soon.
Hebrews 11 v 6 tells me that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Psalm 34 v 10 He said the young lions do lack and suffer hunger but they that seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing. Teach your children to seek the Lord and they will never lack any good thing.
6. Teach your children to appreciate good things from their youth. Teach them how to appreciate what is good. There is a spiritual law that is called the law of transformation. And it simply says “whatever you admire is what you are likely to become”
2Corinthians 3 v 18, He said as you behold the Lord, you are transformed from the same image from Glory to Glory. What you appreciate is what you will be transformed into.
Elisha appreciated Elijah; he ended up with a double portion of his anointing. Joshua appreciated Moses, when Moses was about to leave Egypt he deposited the spirit of wisdom in Him.
What your child appreciates from youth is what he will likely become when he is old.
Let me tell you stories quickly.
When I was very young, a teacher came to teach in our village and every day, he was quarrelling with one of his relatives (he came with one of his relatives whether cousin or brother I don’t know). Go and read your book, the boy will say no, and every day there will be noise. As the teacher is flogging this boy go and read your book. One day the boy said: “Why are you flogging me, I said I don’t want to read” So the teacher asked him, okay what do you want to do? What do you want to become? He said he wanted to be a truck pusher.
Your children will never be a truck pusher in Jesus Name.
The teacher just packed his load and sent him away. I don’t know what became of him but I am sure he ended up being a truck pusher.
I will tell you another story; some of you have heard it before. This one happened in 1951, it was an Anglican church in our town, where I grew up, the Bishop from Ibadan who was in charge of the area then, and he came to visit our town. In those days, only two Lorries came to my village per day. One is a “Bedford”, the other is “Austin” Some of you don’t know what I am talking about, but just two Lorries.
And the Bishop came in a brand new car, before then I have never seen a car before. That was 1951; he was dressed in the beautiful Bishop robe. When I looked at the shoe, they were shinning, we all lined the road, all pupil lined the road, we were singing as he was coming and he came down and he was walking as if the floor is egg. My mouth dropped open, everything so beautiful! And all the Church members were bringing eggs, and cocks, and yams. When I got home that day, I told my mother; I am going to be a Bishop!
Now I am not a Bishop today but I am very close. How many of you believe that your children will be great? Let me hear you say Amen loud and clear. What you appreciate is what you are likely to become.
7. I beg you in the Name of the Almighty God, you parents in particular, teach your children to respect the anointed in Psalm 105 v14 -15 where God said touch not my anointed, do my Prophet no harm. When God said that one, there are no age limitations. He didn’t say you elders touch not my anointed do my prophet no harm. And the rest, do what you like with the anointed.
In 2Kings 2 v 23 – 24, some children touched the anointed of God, they died instantly. Please teach your children. Anywhere they see people making fun of a man of God; they should leave the place immediately. Those who make fun of the anointed men of God don’t live long. If you read Numbers 16 v 1- 35 you will see that those who touched the anointed of God they always die suddenly. Teach your children. No matter how young they are they must respect the anointed, because their lives depend on it.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said the showers that started last year; will continue throughout this year.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said ignore the noise of the enemy because I have just started with you.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said very soon your testimony will be my God is very generous.
Thank you Lord, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I want you to believe me, He said there will be major recovery of lost grounds.
8. Teach your children that age is no barrier to be used of God. Teach your children, let them be open to God, God can begin to use them even as from children. In 1 Samuel 3 v 1- 14 Samuel had been hearing from God as a child. David was an ordinary child when he killed Goliath. In 1Timothy 4 v 12: Paul said to Timothy let no man despise thy youth. Please let your children appreciate the fact that God can use them, even as small children.
I will tell you a story, so that we can have plenty of time for what I want to do tonight. Before I became born again, my wife and I we had three children all by cesarean. Then we became born again and then we decided we are not having any children after those three, but then we became born again. And Jesus became our Doctor.
One day I was reading the Bible and I read Luke 1 v 37 that’s says with God nothing shall be impossible. Because the Doctors told us that there was no way my wife would had normal delivery. Because they said certain bones were bent somehow. But I read with God nothing shall be impossible. So I decided we better had another child. So she became pregnant and we decided we will not involve any Doctor at all rather than Jesus. But then the time of delivery begin to draw near and all kinds of things began to happen; one of our friends died at child birth. A lot of things happened that began to shake our faith but we held on to God.
Then God decided to speak to us. He spoke through our children; we sat down, we wanted to do family devotion and we read Exodus 14 where the children of Israel crossed the red sea and we turned to the children. What do you understand by this story? We just thought they will say something like the Sunday school teacher said……… David, Moses raised his rod and the sea parted. One of them said; “that story teaches that where there is no way before, God can make a way” I looked at my wife, she looked at me. I know this is not an ordinary child talking, this is God saying where there was no way before there will be a way. We grabbed that one!
The following day, we were doing family worship and we read Act 12 v 5 -11 where Peter was released from prison and we turned to the children. What do you understand by this? And the other one said (they were all little children) “he said the stories teaches me, that when God is with me, doors will begin to open on their own accord” I looked at my wife, she looked at me and our fears disappeared! Because God has spoken: “where there was no way before, there will be a way” If God is with me doors will begin to open on their own accord, “through the mouth of babes and suckling’s hast thou ordained strength”
I thank God for that boy who beat the drum, and by the way, Pastor Kunle Ajayi, I want to see you about that boy. I thank God for the boy who beat the drum. I thank God for the girl who blew the saxophone during the convention. The devil is recruiting his own; but Jesus is recruiting His own; which category will your children belong? Let your children know they don’t have to wait till they are old before they are used by the Lord.
9. Finally, don’t just teach them by word of mouth, teach them by example. The Bible says, it is like mother like daughter. The elders would say like father like son. Would you be able to say like Joshua said, as for me and my house; we will serve the Lord. The children are watching; it is not what you say that is most important it is what you do.
When we were at Ilorin one day, I was teaching at the university and I was pasturing one of our churches. People will come to the house. People who are sick who need healing or they just come for one thing or the other. And I would closed my eyes, laid hands on them and prayed for them and at times some of them who are standing when I am praying the anointing would knock them down. And my second to the last son, who was about two to three years old, was there.
One day somebody came to greet us and brought her child, my son went to my room, took my tie and put it on his neck. He thought the tie is what makes you a Pastor. And he went to the child that the other fellow brought, closed his eyes, laid his hands on the child, closed his eyes and his mouth began to move. After sometime he opened his eyes and said fall down now!
Let somebody shout Hallelujah!
“I have done everything my father used to do, they fall when he does that, you are not falling. Fall down now”!
The children are watching you, and I pray that you will not lead them astray. In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ you will be a blessing, your children will be blessed. You will never have cause to weep over your children again. But if the parents are not following God what example will the children follow? Like Father, like son. Like mother like daughter!
That is why I am appealing to those who are here tonight who are parents and you are not yet born again, it is your example that your children will follow. Come and surrender your life to the one who can take care of the entire family. Those parents who are backsliders; come back to Jesus Christ! Bring the Light of Jesus Christ back to your home. Whatever example that you lay, that is what your children will follow!
And those of you children; who are old enough to understand what I am talking about, God can begin to use you from your youth. But you must surrender your live to Jesus Christ first. He will not use a child of the devil, He will only use the child of God, and so those of you, who want to give your life to Jesus Christ, begin to come now. Whether as parents or even as children, or if you are a backslider and you want to return to God, come now. Everyone is welcome at the cross, parents and children alike. Come on the Lord is waiting for you.
Begin to pray to Him now ask Him to come into your life, promise Him you will serve Him for the rest of your life.
In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. Thank you for your Word. Thank you for all these people who have come forward for Salvation. You promised that whosoever comes unto you, you will no wise cast out. They have come unto you now, Father receive them in Jesus Name, save their souls in Jesus Name. Everything they have done wrong in the past wipe it away with your Blood in Jesus Name. Write their names in the book of life in Jesus Name. And from now on, let them begin to serve you wholeheartedly in Jesus Name. And when they call on you, please answer them immediately in Jesus Name. Thank you my Father. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed. Amen.
Now those of you in front let me hear you shout Hallelujah! Now I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward today, because from today onward, I will be praying for you and very soon you will begin to receive miracles you didn’t even ask for. Then you will know that somebody is praying for you somewhere. I am going to need your names, your addresses and your prayer requests. Since you are many, stay where you are, some Pastors will come and collect the information I want from you. And you can go back to your seats.
In the main time, the rest of us we want to pray, are you ready to pray Brethren? If you are ready to pray, please stand. And if you know that God is going to answer your prayer tonight, let me hear you shout a really big Hallelujah!
The elders have a saying; they say “who can take care of a child, if not God?” So you are going to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say Father, I commit all my children into your hands, help me take care of them, help me train them. Let’s talk to the Almighty God… in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.
You will now pray one more prayer, you will say Father! Don’t let any member of my family go to hell, myself, my friend, my children. Don’t let any member of my family go to hell. Please Almighty God, let all of us belong to you alone. Talk to Him with all your heart… in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.
Bring forth your children, they will anoint your children, they will anoint the parents and your children will drop the offering before you go back. So the Ushers will bring out one offering bag beside the Pastors. And please make sure you put something in the hand of your children so that they don’t come to the presence of the Lord empty handed.
We are going to pray some very serious prayers with that anointing fresh on us. First of all let us shout a really big Hallelujah!
Now we are going to pray some very serious prayers now with that anointing. First the Bible says anointing destroys every yoke. Please if you love your children; lift your voice to the Most High God and say: Father, every yoke in the life of every one of my children, let them be destroyed before the sun rise. In my life also, every yoke that may remain, let them be destroyed before the sun rises because of the power of the anointing. Let us talk to the Almighty God. Thank you Father, in Jesus mighty Name we have prayed.
Pray the next prayer with the whole of your heart, you will say in the Name of Jesus because it is written, “touched not my anointed, do my prophet no harm”, Satan I command you in the Name of Jesus take your hands off my children, take your hands off my life. Open your mouth and talk to the Almighty… in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.
Now I understand that there are some children here who have special needs, some children are altruistic and the likes. I want the parents to lay their hands on them now, as we go into the next prayer. One of the privileges of the anointing is that when the anointing speaks it comes to pass speedily. Just lay your hands on your children and mention their names one by one and say in the Name of Jesus Christ, it is going to be well with you, no more sickness, no more bondage, all the plan of the enemies concerning you have come to an end now.
I prophesy to you that all the plans of the enemy shall come to not on you, from now on, those who bless you will be blessed; those who curse you will be cursed. Those who want things to be well with you, it will be well with them. Those who want you to succeed will succeed. Those who want you to reach your goal will reach their goals. Adeboye it is going to be well with you, you will never know failure, and you will never know sorrow. God will complete everything concerning you, you will move from Glory to Glory, from power to power, from joy into joy. From abundance to abundance, you will never lack. You will never borrow. You will never be put to shame; you will reach your goal. The plan of God for your life will be fulfilled. All your enemies will be scattered. God will arise and fight your battles for you. Adeboye it will be well with you, it will be well with you in the afternoon, it will be well with you in the evening. It will be well with you all the days of your life. Thank you Jesus, In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.
Now I want to pray for you, so let your Amen be loud and clear. In the Mighty Name of Jesus, by the power of the anointing, every yoke in your lives are destroyed now. The enemies will take their hands off you completely in Jesus Name. The enemy will never look in your direction again in Jesus Name. Whether the enemies like it or not you will reach your goal. You will never weep over your children again. All your children will be mightier than you. It will be well with you. All the desires of your heart will be granted you. By the time the sun rises, your joy will begin to overflow. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed. If you receive that let me hear you shout a really big Hallelujah!
Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Thank you Daddy, Hallelujah Father, the Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said before the end of this month, the tide would have turned for you.

Tonight Father, save souls, heal the sick set the captives free, bless every one of us, visit us in a special way. At the end of it all, take all the Glory and give us the Blessing. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed. Amen.
Let someone shout Hallelujah! Shake hands with your neighbor and say joy to the wise that means joy to me because I refuse to be a fool. And put your hands together for the Lord Almighty.
Let’s go on to 2Timothy2v20-21 ‘But in a great house, there are not only vessel of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth and some to honour, and some to dishonor. If a man therefore purges himself from theses, he shall be a vessel of honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work’
When I got born again, I first cried to The Almighty God that I don’t want to be an ordinary Christian, I want to be special, I want God to use me mightily, I want God to use me throughout the world. Thank God he answered my prayer; He is still answering my prayer; because I am not what I want to be yet.
I am believing God that from now on, your life will no longer be an ordinary Christian. Last month as I travelled, from here to Spain for our European convention and people came from 21 nations, where our churches are in Europe: I saw God moved mightily.
My heart rejoiced mightily. When I left Spain, and as I traveled to Australia and people gathered from all the nations in that area and I saw God moved my heart rejoiced. Now the journey from Spain to Australia took 26hours by flight, when we left Australia, we went to Papua New Guinea, even though some of you have not heard of this name before. This means you have to travel from Australia, the distance is almost like travelling from Nigeria to London and I saw God moved. My heart rejoiced. Then we travelled from Papua New Guinea to Fiji and I saw God moved, my heart rejoiced and we travelled from Fiji to Mauritius, and I saw God moved, my heart rejoiced, but then I remember you; that one day God will use you throughout the world.
If that is what you want let me here you shout amen loud and clear!
But then the question is: a question I am sure must be in the heart of everybody is: Can God use me? Can God use me to raise the dead? Can God use me to open blind eyes?
All these testimonies we hear, all the miracles that God has been performing, is it for the GO alone that God can do him for? Can He use me too? I have good news for you tonight; if you are willing and you are obedient He will use you for His Glory.
God can use the insignificant, 1Corinthians 1v 26 -29 The Bible tells us that God can use weak things, foolish things, things that are nothing, in other words He can use illiterate, He can use people that nobody will recognize, He can use somebody that nobody knows.
In 1Kings 17 v 1 the Bible said God used Elijah the Tishbite. They didn’t even mention his father’s name, because he came from a family that didn’t matter at all, and yet God used him mightily.
In 2king5v1-14 it was a house maid that God used to bring healing to Naaman. God can use a house maid, He can use a house boy, He can use the significant, and He can use the insignificant He can use the rich too, because some people think as soon as you are rich God is going to by- passed you. And say well you already got wealth you don’t need anointing.
That is not what the Bible says; in 2kings 4 v 8-17 God used a wealthy woman in Shunem as a Vessel unto Honour. In Acts 16 v 13 -15 God used Lydia a wealthy woman as a vessel unto hour. The fact that you are wealthy does not disqualify you from being used of God.
God can use the destitute; those who don’t even have anything at all. In 1kings 17v8-16, God used a widow who had just one meal left as a Vessel unto Honour, to take care of His servant Elijah.
If He uses a destitute, that destitute will not remain a destitute! He can use the young; nobody is too young for God to use.
In 2Samuel 3 v 1- 18, God used Samuel when he was still a child. So nobody is too young that God cannot use. He can use the old; nobody is too old for God to use. In Exodus 3 v 1-15 Moses was already 80 years old before God began to use him, so if you are less than 80 years of age, you are still a prime candidate for God to use. And God used him for another forty years. In other words if there is anybody here who is not 120 years old, God can still use that fellow.
He can use the first born, Samuel was the first born of his parents and God used him mightily, how many first born are here tonight, if you are a first born let me hear you shout Hallelujah! Congratulations! Because God is going to use you
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said between two days there is always a night, but He says I should tell you, I will make your night short and make your days long.
He can use the first born, and he can use the last born. David was the last born of his parents and God used him mightily; how many last born are here? I think you should stand because I am one of you. Every last born let me hear you shout Hallelujah!
God is going to use you in Jesus name. And then He can use those who are neither firstborn nor last born; Joseph was not the first born neither was He the last born of his parents and yet God used him mightily. So if you are neither the first born nor the last born let me hear you shout Hallelujah! So He can use first born, last born, second born, third born, He can use eighteenth born. It doesn’t matter what born you are, He can use you.
He can use male, I mean Elisha, Elijah, many of them. And He can use female; Deborah, Elizabeth, Mary Esther, God can use male and female.
So you will see He can use the poor, He can use the rich and He can use a combination of both; a driver witnessed to his employer, and she gave her life to Jesus; she witnessed to her own sister and she gave her life to Jesus.
And that elder sister not only gave her life to Jesus Christ but she got her healing, so she decided that the Church that God used to bring me healing as well as salvation must be established in my town. So she gave one house to start the church in, when that one was not enough she gave a second house, later on she gave a third house and on and on and on.
As a result of the witness of a driver, The Redeemed Christian Church of God got to Port Harcourt and today in River State, we have closed to one thousand Churches. God can use a driver. How many of you believe that God is talking to you tonight, that you are going to be a Vessel of Honour in His Hands. Let me hear you shout a big hallelujah!
God can use the Righteous, in Luke1v5-6…
Thank you Father, this night must be a special night indeed. The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I should tell you “I am The Alpha and The Omega; I will rearrange your future”.
God can use the righteous, in Luke 1 v 5-6 Elizabeth was described as blameless; herself, her husband, blameless and God used them mightily. But God can use those who are formerly ungodly; in Luke8 v 1-3, the Bible said God used Mary Magdalene, she became a divine treasurer.
She used to have seven demons in her. In other words it is a polite way of saying she was a chief among witches but God grabbed her, flushed out the demons out of her and turned her to a divine treasure. She was one of the three people who were actively supplying the needs of the Lord Jesus Christ. In other words it doesn’t matter how bad you used to be. God can still pick you from where you are, change you over and begin to use you for His Glory.
I am a living example of that; I have said if I were Jesus Christ, I would not have saved Adeboye at all, but the Almighty God , looked down and saw a rotten young man, grabbed him, saved his soul and filled him with the Holy Spirit. And today we give Him the Glory.
I have a friend who has gone to be with the Lord now some of you probably knew him, we called him Brother Moses. He was so bad that anytime he came home on holiday, everybody in the village will lock in their children; because Moses was a devil incarnate:
The Lord saved his soul and he changed radically; with the same intensity with which he served the devil it is the same intensity he used to serve God. If you are in the same taxi with Moses, whether you like it or not you will give your life to Jesus Christ before he lets you go. If God can use Moses, if God can use Adeboye, he can use you too and he will use you in Jesus Name.
Now the passage that we read said there are some Vessels unto Honour. Vessels of Gold; Vessels of Silver; Precious Vessels in the Hand of the Almighty God. We see examples; Mary in Luke1 v 34-37 we see someone who brought to the world the Lord Jesus Christ, what a Vessel unto Honour!
And then we see Philip: Acts 8 v 5-8 we see somebody who was an ordinary deacon; who turned a whole city to the Lord Jesus Christ and then we see Paul, who was formerly an antichrist, but the Lord saved his soul and he became a mighty Vessel unto Honour.
I want to say Amen to this one before I tell you, the Lord says that there is someone here tonight; He said I should tell you, I am the controller of seasons and I will make your raining season to last for a very long time.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight He said I will show those who try to disgrace you that I am the King of Glory.
Acts19 v 11-12 The Bible says God performs special miracles by the hand of Paul, so that even his handkerchief, was casting out demons.
One miracle happened in Spain last month, those of you who were here during the special Holy Ghost service in March you will see that the Lord said we should tie some clothes with some of the shirt that I wore in December.
That people, should come and touch and received their miracles. And when we finished He said I should take one of it to Europe. During the convention, there was a time when He said we should spread out the clothe for people to touch.
A woman was there who had a child. And the child was born paralyzed. The child cannot seat, cannot stand, cannot do anything just a vegetable. The child had been like that for many years. And as there were touching the clothe, she brought her child and she used the hand of the child to touch the clothe, by time she got to her seat, the child was already standing. That God who did that, He is going to solve your problem tonight.
But not only will He solve your problem, He is going to turn you into somebody who will solve the problems of others.
So there are some Vessels unto Honour and you will be one of them. But then He said there are some Vessels unto Dishonor, we are not going to talk much about that because I believe that such people are not here tonight. But you see every Vessel has its use.
God will use a Vessel unto Dishonor to be an example to others, to show others ‘this is what will happen to those who misbehave’. Take Gehazi for an example in 2 Kings 5v 20-27 here is somebody who would have become the most powerful man of the whole testament; he was a servant to Elisha. Elisha had a double portion of Elijah. If Gehazi had behaved, when Elisha was about to die, he would have transferred the double the portion his power to Gehazi, but Gehazi loved money more that anointing and so instead of becoming the most powerful prophet of the whole testament, he ended up becoming a leper, because he lied against the man of God.
We will find another example in Act 5 v 1-14. It is the story of a family; husband and wife; they sold a property and brought part of the money to the Apostles. Now the fact that they brought half of the money is not the problem, the land belong to them, they sold of their own free will and they decided how much to bring. But when they came to the man of God, they told him this is all that we sold the land for. They tried to deceive the Holy Spirit and as a result they died.
God was using them as a lesson, that you don’t deceive God and go away scot free. Which is a lesson to all of us; many at times when we say we come to pay our tithes, what we pay is not the tithe and we think we can deceive God and get away with it, my prayer for you is that you will not be a bad example in Jesus Name.
When Ananias and Sapphira died, the Bible said as a result multitudes were added unto the church. God use them even though they were Vessels unto Dishonor, God use them for His advantage. God can use Vessels unto Honour, as we go through the scriptures; we find that each Vessel unto Honour, God used them to prove a point.
For example He used Joseph to prove to the world that He is a Faithful God, that when He speaks, it is done, that when He said something, that thing will come to pass.
He showed Joseph in Genesis 37 v 5 -11 that one day all his brothers will come and bow down before him. They didn’t believe him, they even tried to kill him, but by the time we got to Genesis 50 v 15-21; everything God said will happen, happened to him; and I am believing God for somebody here today, every prophesy that have come your way shall be fulfilled in Jesus name.
I want to say Amen to this one before I tell you, today will be a night of Amen, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said the river of opportunities is flowing in your direction, He asked me to encourage you, be on the alert so that you don’t miss anyone of them.
He used Joseph, as an example of His Faithfulness and occasionally He will use somebody to show the world that His laws never fail. In Genesis 26 v 12-14, the Bible said even in the time of famine Isaac sowed in the land and the law of harvest came in. The Bible says even when the famine was on; Isaac kept on reaping and reaping until he became a very great man. God used Isaac to prove a point to a whole nation; that the law of harvest will never fail.
Many at times He will use someone to show His ability to make the impossible possible. In Genesis 18 v 1- 14; The Bible tells us that God paid a visit to Abraham and Sarah. Abraham was a hundred years old then, Sarah was ninety. Now God has promised Abraham twenty five years before that he was going to be the father of many nations.
At that time Abraham was seventy five, Sarah was sixty-five, humanly speaking they were even already too old then, but God wanted to make the matter even more complicated. He waited for another twenty five years, until Abraham was hundred, and Sarah was ninety and then God moved in, so that it can be recorded that with God nothing shall be impossible!
And I am encouraging somebody here today, is there any impossibility in your life? Maybe God wants to use you as an example to show the world that with God nothing shall be impossible!
Tell your neighbor my own will not be impossible with God.
Some years ago, I was visiting America, unknown to me one of my daughters there a medical doctor, has been waiting for future partner for donkey years and nobody showed up.
She has now passed child bearing, she has stopped menstruating. Somehow, something within her told her; you are going to have a child, and she said “how am I going to have a child without having a husband, I can’t commit adultery”. And that spirit inside her told her that with God nothing shall be impossible. But God “how is this going to be, how will it happen”?
The spirit of God began to guide her. She bought a car and went to the pastor; she said “please sir, when Daddy comes, let him use this car throughout the period he is here”. They told her we have made arrangement, she said “please let him use this one”.
I arrived I didn’t know any difference between the cars; they said this is the one to use.
When I left, she took the car to the garage, locked herself in, sat inside the car and began to pray to God: ‘the anointing that is on your son, let it destroy the yoke in my life, and let me become a mother of a child like you promised’
Within weeks, somebody came and said, God said you are to be my wife, within months; they were married, in a little over a year; the baby came. I don’t know who I am speaking to today; it may look as if it is already too late for you, but by the auction of the Holy Spirit flowing from this altar, you will share your testimony very soon.
Occasionally, He will use someone as an example of his ability to reverse the irreversible.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said the forces that is causing delay in your family has been scattered.
The Lord said there is someone here today, groaning under a heavy burden of debt, the Lord asked me to tell you, a series of blessings will come your way that will clear your debt and you will never need to borrow again.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said one day, when they began to talk about laboring without reward, you would say what is so called, because that will become a stranger to you.
John 11v 1-24 tells us that when Lazarus was sick, Lazarus was a friend of Jesus, they came to tell Him that your friend is sick. And He stayed where He was for four more days. Why? Because He wanted to use Lazarus as a Vessel; to prove to the world that He can reverse the irreversible. Long after the man had died and had been buried and he was already stinking, He came and raised him up.
All of you that have been told your case are hopeless; I am praying for you tonight, God will use your case to prove that He can reverse the irreversible.
He can use some people as an example to heal when He’s willingness to do so.
In Matthew 8v 1-3 The Bible said a leper came unto Him; now when we talk about a leper in those days, it is like talking about somebody with full blown AIDS nowadays, leprosy had no cure then.
And the leper came to him and said I know you can do it. I know you can make me clean if you are willing. He used that leper as an example.
We are still reading about Him today, He is not only able to heal, He is willing to heal. I have good news for those of you who are here tonight, who is looking unto God for healing, your testimony will show the world that our God is still the great physician.
In John 5v 2- 9 The Bible tells me that there was a man who has been sick for thirty –eight years. Jesus healed him in a single moment. He will heal you too, it doesn’t matter how long your sickness is. As a matter of fact when you begin to share your testimony, you will suddenly discover that the sickness you suffered from has turned you round to be Vessel unto Honour in His Hands.
In John 9 v 1- 7 The Bible tells us about a man that was born blind, and when the disciples saw him, they asked the Lord, “Why was this man born blind? Is it because of his sin or the sin of his parents”? Jesus said “it is not because of sin, it is so that God might be glorified in his life”. I want him to be a Vessel that will show the world, that God has creative powers. I have good news for somebody here today, that which the doctors said he can never do again, the Almighty God will do for you tonight.
It reminds me of the first crusade we held at Road Park several years ago, there was a young man there, apparently when he was born; he was born with only one testicle. The parents in an attempt to help him, they took him to a native doctor who destroyed the only one testicle that he had.
And so this young man even though he knew the problem he had still went ahead and married. And then he came to the crusade and the power of God came down, suddenly he discovered that he now had two testicles. The day he came to share his testimony, he came with his wife and the wife was already pregnant. And he wanted to show me what God has done, I said there is no need, I can see the evidence.
That which the enemy has destroyed in your life, shall be repaired tonight in Jesus name.
He can use some people as example of His ability to deliver and to restore destiny. In Mark 5 v 1- 20 It took me some time for me to understand the story of the mad man of Gadarenes. One demon is enough to make a man go mad. But this man had at least two thousand demons. Almighty God, why would one man become a habitation for two thousand demons? Until God showed me; so that when I set Him free, only God can do this
In Daniel 3 when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego said they would not bow down to the image of Nebuchadnezzar, and Nebuchadnezzar said let them hit the fiery furnace seven times, hotter than before. It is because God wanted to prove that He can deliver in any circumstance whatsoever.
That is why there is good news for those of you who are passing through fire right now, the hotter the fire, the greater your testimony shall be because you are not going to die in the fire in Jesus name.
Amen, amen, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said by tomorrow morning, a new episode of joy begins in your life.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said stop touching the unclean things and I will begin to prosper everything you touch.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight He said very soon you will shed some tears, but it will be tears of unbelievable joy.
Now let’s look at the advantages: When we talked about Vessels unto Honour, that are meet for the Master’s use, let us consider things like; glass with which we drink water, knife and folk, that the King use to eat. The mirror in his bathroom, these are Vessels unto Honour.
If you look at it from that perspective, and look at the advantages that these Vessels will enjoy, the first advantage there is that the King will be touching them.
If you become a Vessel unto Honour to God, the Hand of God will constantly be on you. 1 Kings 18 v 46 The Bible says the Hand of the Lord was upon Elijah and that Hand of God upon him gave him extra ordinary strength that he was able to out-run even his enemy that was riding in a chariot.
I know what it is for the Hand of God to be on someone. On several occasions, I will be so tired that I will feel like sleeping for a week, when I wake up in the morning. I remember one time in particular, we were going to hold a crusade in Haiti. When you get to America, you still have several hours of flight to get to Haiti. It is only in America you can get the Visa. We went to their Embassy in America, and you know many of these small, small countries when you say you want to visit them, for some reasons I am yet to understand, they want to trouble you before they give you the Visa.
We were there from morning till almost 3pm. We just wanted to go and preach the gospel, they still delayed us, until the Nigeria Ambassador in America intervened before they gave us the Visa. And then we travelled down and the crusade was beginning that night. I was worn out and I was going to preach, God what am I going to do now?
Thank God for Pastor Kunle Ajayi, he had to play the saxophone before I preached and; when he began to play, suddenly I felt the Hand of God upon me. Energy came from nowhere and miracles began to happen.
Every one of you here tonight, that God has never touched before, He will touch you tonight. Those of you that he has touched before, He will touch you again tonight.
But you see if you are a Vessel of Honour in His Hands, He will touch you regularly. Not only that, consider the drinking glass, regularly the glass goes to the mouth of the King and receives a kiss from the King of Kings. How wonderful will it be if you can receive a kiss form the Lord Jesus Christ!
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said the river of fire that you are passing through now will soon become the river of power.
The Bible says God spoke to Moses mouth to mouth. He spoke to other prophets, they heard with their ears. He spoke to Moses mouth to mouth; a divine kiss will automatically change your life completely.
Now all the Vessels unto Honour on the table of the King will hear whatever the King is saying. One of the advantages of being a Vessel unto Honour is that you can hear God speak, even when He is speaking in a whisper. In 1Kings 19 v 11-12: The Bible says God was speaking in a small still voice and Elijah was hearing.
One of my children came to me, he said Daddy “tell me, how do you hear from God”, I said “it is difficult to say, you become a Vessel unto Honour and you will be hearing from God”. And those of you who have not been hearing from God, you will be hearing from now on in Jesus Name.
Talking about Vessel unto Honour, you can also use the mirror in the bathroom, do you know that the mirror in the bathroom of the King, can see the whole nakedness of the King! What is covered in the public? It will be revealed to the mirror.
A Vessel unto Honour is allowed to see the invincible.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is somebody here tonight; He said I will blind those who are seeking your harm.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said compared to others, you are already running, you are moving fast, the Lord asked me to tell you; very soon you will begin to fly.
The Lord asked me to say this to someone, He said I should say it emphatically, He said stop doubting you will make it.
Exodus 33v 18- 23 Moses said “Lord show me your glory” and God said nobody can see my face and live, but because you are a Vessel unto Honour, I will make an arrangement; I will put you in the cleft of a rock; cover your face with my hands, And just when I am about to pass, you will see my back. Moses saw a little bit, he didn’t die; instead his face began to shine like the sun. I pray for every one of you here tonight, even before the end of this month you will see the Glory of God.
One of the blessings of being Vessels unto Honour is the grace to stand in His presence. 1 Kings 17 v 1 Elijah said, as the Lord God of Israel lives, before whom I stand…. A Vessel of Honour is given the grace to stand in the presence of God and Psalm 16v 11 says in His presence there is the fullness of Joy; that means the portion of Vessels unto Honour is fullness of joy.
Added to that is that Vessels unto Honour always dwell with the King. They live in the house of the King. They dwell in the palace of The Most High God. And when you consider Psalm 26v6…
Hallelujah! The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said your next testimony will not be easily forgotten.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said out of shear mercy I will turn the tide for you.
In Psalm 23 v 6 David said, surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Those who are Vessels unto Honor, they dwell in the house of the Lord, and because they dwell in His house, goodness and mercy follow them all the days of their life.
If you become a Vessel unto Honor in the Hand of God, the only thing that will follow you will be goodness and mercy. And of course from time to time, God rewards those who are Vessel unto Honour, He rewards them for what they have done for him, He rewards them by making sure that they finish well.
Paul was a Vessel unto Honour and in 2Timothy 4 v 6 – 8 He stated categorically: He said I have finished the work and my reward is waiting for me. If you are a Vessel unto Honour in God’s Hands, you will not only be rewarded in God’s Hands, you will not only be rewarded in this world, you will be rewarded in the world to come.
Several years ago, God showed me a vision of Heaven; He showed me a house. They were still building the house. It is difficult to describe the size of the house. If you can imagine a house the size of the city of Ibadan, that will give you a rough idea, this is a rough description.
It had so many rooms and the people building were still very busy adding more rooms. And I said what house is this? He said “Son that is your House: My house? What am I going to do with all these rooms, why are they building more”? And He said to me, “in Heaven, all your children will be coming to pay you a visit and each one will have a visit in your House”. So your own room is already built in my own House. Of course you will have your own mansion too and the number of rooms will be determined by the number of lives that you saved for Jesus Christ.
And that was a long time ago, I have not seen the house again yet, maybe they will show me one more time before I go, but that is why I am always busy wining souls. I want as many souls as possible to come into the Kingdom, so that there will be somebody to fill all those rooms. And I am encouraging you too; God is going to reward every Vessel unto Honour. He said in Revelation 22 v 12 He said behold I come quickly and my reward is with me, to give to every man as his work shall be. I pray that on that day, your reward will be reward of glory in Jesus name.
Please listen carefully to this next one and I would want you to write it down for record purposes; The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said I would take you to higher grounds, He said but when you get there, don’t forget me. Please write it down because if God says He is going to do it, He is going to do it. He will do it. And He added a warning to it, He said I will take you to higher ground, He said when you get there don’t forget him.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said very soon the world will say; how come we have not heard about you before now!
Conditions for being a Vessel unto Honour: If a man purges himself, God is willing to use you as a Vessel unto Honour, I have told you He can use the insignificant, He can use the poor, He can use the rich, He can use house boy, He can use house maid. He can use a driver, He can use anybody, He can use the young, and He can use the old. He can use the firstborn. He can use the last born. He can use somebody born in between.
But God is no respecter of person, Acts 10 v 34 – 35 God is no respecter of person, but in every nations, in every generation, those who fear Him and do His will are accepted by Him.
If you are willing to meet His conditions, He is willing to make you a Vessel unto Honour. In 2Corithians 6v 14-18 He says you must be separate; you must not touch the unclean thing. He said you cannot be like other people if you want me to receive you.
You cannot follow multitudes to do evil and expect that God will make you a Vessel unto Honour, but if you are willing to be separate, if you are willing to be peculiar, if you are willing to be different from others, if you don’t care what they say about you, all you want to do is you want to please God, then He said I will receive you. I will be your God and you will be my people.
In Isaiah 6v1-8 He made it clear that after you have been purified, then you must be available. After He has purified Isaiah, he then said who shall I send? who will go for us? And Isaiah said I am here, send me.
There are people here who say we want to be Vessels unto Honour, if I say today who will want to go and be one of our Pastors in America? Everybody will raise their hands!
But if I say who will want to be our Pastor in Iran? We have had an opening now in Iran; I am yet to find somebody who will go.
When I got to Papua New Guinea, the brother there has been there for five years, you can imagine how he was when he saw me, he was drunk with joy. Papua New Guinea is far from home. Australia is even nearer when you are talking of Papua New Guinea, but he was there serving the Lord, the church there is doing well, that is a Vessel unto Honour. Who shall I send who will go for me? If God should say that tonight, how many of you will say God here am I send me? I thought I would see hands going up? Let me assure you of one thing, because you came tonight your life can never be the same again.
In 1Corithians 4v 1-2 after you have been purified, after you have made yourself available, God expects you to be faithful. It is expected of a steward that he be found faithful. You must be faithful and anyone who is going to be a Vessel unto Honour must be willing to be intimate with God.
He must be willing to spend quality time with Him, must be willing to stand in His Presence. Anyone who is going to be a Vessel unto Honour in the Hand of God must know God, not know about him but know God himself. Must know God for yourself, not just what the Pastor say, discover God yourself. Daniel 11 v 32 said they that do know their God shall be strong, and shall do exploits.
One of the things that I thank the Almighty God for is that by the time I got born again, He put a hunger in my heart: I wanted to know Him!
There were people ahead of me, they talked about God and I thank them for what I learnt from them but secretly on my own, I keep on crying to God. I want to know you more, reveal yourself to me. I don’t want to be an ordinary Christian. Show me yourself, show me your power, and let me understand you like nobody else.
At night when everybody is sleeping I cry to Him and if you cry to Him, He will reveal himself to you. I am believing God for everyone of you tonight, other Christians will see you and say you are different.
If you want to be a Vessel unto Honor, there is one way to start, and that is that you become a vocal witness about Him, just begin to talk about Him.
In 2kings 5 v 1-14 The maid who brought healing to Naaman, all she did was witnessed, she said how I wish that my master will go to the prophet that is in Israel, he would have healed him, that is the only thing that girl did all her life and we are reading about her till today, don’t keep quiet about him, tell others, Jesus saves, Jesus heals, Jesus performs miracles, invite them to the Holy Ghost service, let them come and taste the power of God for themselves. One thing I have discovered, those who always witness about the power of God, they end up enjoying the power of God.
Finally, you must be a living sacrifice, Roman12 v1-2 says if you want to be a Vessel unto Honour in the Hand of God, you must be willing to be a living sacrifice, because the moment you say God I am available, He would take you seriously, He will grab you and send you to where you are needed.
A living sacrifice never complains; he is willing to go wherever God says he should go. When you say God empower me so that I will be a Vessel unto Honour, then you are also asking for some problems, because the more you have the power of God, the more people will come seeking for help.
Some years ago, we were just trying to settle down to sleep, At 2 am a man came all the way from Abeokuta knocking at the door, if somebody is knocking at our door at 2am you know it has to be an emergency. And we opened the door to see a big man. A real big head of a family weeping profusely,
We said “what is the problem? Somebody died or what”? He said “I have worked for the government for five years and they have not paid me, I want you to pray for me, I know if you pray they will pay me”. I said can’t you wait till the morning? They have owed you for five years? He said I just feel that I must come to you to pray”
I said “at 2am!”
Thank God we prayed and as God will have it, three days later they paid him his money.
But the point I am making is this, if you want to be a Vessel of Honour in the Hands of God, you want God to use you to heal the sick, to deliver the captives. To use you to raise the dead, your time will no longer be your own, you will no longer be able to sit down and enjoy comfort as you used to enjoy because anointing will attract trouble. The anointing is not for sitting down, it is for healing the sick and setting the captives free, anointing will create problems, but they are good problems.
How many of you are still willing to be Vessels of Honour in the Hand of God? You are willing to pay the price? Let me hear you say Amen loud and clear.
The Preacher who spoke before me said one thing, God cannot use you if you are not clean, that is why I keep crying be holy. The Bible says in Isaiah 52 v 11, He said be clean to carry the Vessel of the Lord.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here, to the world you are an ex -champion, the Lord ask me to tell you will soon regain your crown.
I will tell you a story that I have told you before. When I was a lecturer at the university of Lagos there was a sister there who had been crying to God, please use me for your glory I want to be a Vessel unto Honor, empower me oh Lord, I want to be mightily used of God.
God didn’t answer her until one day, she went to use the toilet and a that period there was water shortage in the campus, so she opened the first toilet everything was full, she shut the door, she opened the second one, the floor was even full. She opened the third one, it was worst.
Finally she left the toilet and then God spoke and said my daughter I thought you wanted to use the toilet,
She said “yes Lord”
And you know when God is speaking to you for the first time, you won’t even know that someone is speaking to you and you are answering.
“Yes Lord I want to use the toilet”.
“Why are you not using it”? She said because it is very dirty.
And God said, “I too wants to use you but you are too dirty.
If you are here tonight, you have not yet given your life to Jesus Christ and yet you want to be a Vessel unto Honour, he can’t use you when you are dirty, but if you come to Him; His blood will wash you clean.
The blood of Jesus cleanses from all sins. If you are here tonight, you have once been born again but you have backslide, you have gone back to your old ways of sinning. God can’t use you when you are dirty but if you come to Him, He will destroy every yoke of sin in your life.
So those of you who want to give your life to Jesus, and those of you who have backslide and you want to return to Him, you can come to Him now. Let’s together join our voices, call on Him for your salvation and your restoration.
If you want to give your life to Jesus begin to come now. If you are a backslider and you want to give your life to Jesus Christ come now. He will only use a clean vessel.
As you come, begin to talk to the Almighty God and talk to him, tell him you want to be a Vessel of Honour, tell Him to wash you clean, I want to be used mightily of God, I want you to use me to win souls into your kingdom, I want you to use me to heal the sick, to set the captives free, I want you to use me to show others the way to the kingdom of God. Ask him to be merciful ask him to save your soul, ask him to cleanse you in his blood, talk to him.
And the rest of us let’s stretch our hands towards these and ask the restorer. To restore them back. Call on the Almighty God and pray for this people now.
Lord have mercy on me save my soul, wash me and make me clean, I want to be a Vessel unto Honour Lord, everything that will not allow me to be a Vessel unto Honour, wash it away. Call on Him, saviour save my soul, and I will serve you for the rest of my life. Wash me clean oh Lord. I have come to that fountain filled with blood, wash me clean oh Lord, was me clean, wash me clean, save my soul and I will serve you for the rest of my life.
Thank you father, in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.
Father we want to thank you for your word, we want to give you all glory and honor. For all that you have already said to us tonight and for these your children who have come to surrender their lives to you.
Father you promised that who so ever will come unto you, you will no wise cast out, they have come to you now, please receive them in Jesus name, save their souls in Jesus name, let your blood wash away their sins in Jesus name. Write their names in the book of life in Jesus name. From now, whenever they call on you answer them in Jesus name. Every one of them, turn them to Vessel unto Honour in Jesus name. Thank you my Father, in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.
From now on by the grace of God, from now I will be praying for you, you will soon be receiving miracles you didn’t even ask for. So I am going to need your names, your address and your prayer requests. And I promise you by the grace of God every day I will be praying for you.
Now the rest of us, shall we please stand, those of you who really want God to make you a Vessel unto Honour let me hear you shout a really big hallelujah! Maybe you dint hear the question; I said those of you who want God to make as Vessels unto Honour, shout a big Hallelujah!
Now I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty, the Bible says “it is not by might, nor by power, but by Spirit saith the Lord”. I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say Father, the anointing to be a Vessel unto Honour, pour it on me now. Open your mouth and talk to Him…. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
You are going to pray a very special prayer; you see the sick cannot heal the sick. Captive cannot be setting the captives free, so you will lift your voice to God and say Father, everything that will not allow me to serve you, take them away from my life, sickness, poverty, bondage remove them from my life. Go ahead and talk to Him…in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Why don’t you lift your hands to the Almighty God and praise Him, if He has said it, it is already done, nothing can change it, if it came from Him, it is settled.
Bless His Holy name, give him Glory, give Him honour, He said He is taking somebody to the top, He said I will take you to the top, just make sure you don’t forget me when you get there, why don’t you bless His Holy name.
He said someone should stop doubting, He said you will make it, what else do you want? Why don’t you praise Him, why don’t you give Him honour, why don’t you give Him adoration? He said I will blind fold those who are seeking your hurt; why don’t you magnify His Holy name?
He said this month, the tide is going to turn for some body, why don’t you praise Him, why don’t you give Him all honour, and give Him all adoration. Thank you Almighty God, What a faithful God you are! What a Glorious Father you are! Glory Be to your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty name we have given thanks.
Father we Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Father Thank you! Accept our thanks in Jesus Name. The blessings of this night, let them last forever. Every word that has gone forth to us tonight, my Father and my God let them manifest before the sun rises in Jesus name.
Keep on blessing your children, a new season of Joy let it be forever. And I pray Father that in your Kingdom, none of us will be found wanted. Glory Be to Your Holy Name. In Jesus Name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout a big hallelujah!
Pastor E. A. Adeboye
LET GOD ARISE
5th of June, 2009
I want to share with you the greatest secret of David, why no enemy ever succeeded over him, why he rose from nothing to becoming the greatest King in Israel. Why even the Lord Jesus Christ is called the son of David.
You will find it in Psalm 18 v 1-3, he said: “I will love thee, oh! LORD my strength. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength in whom I will trust; my bucker, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from my enemies.”
He kept on calling God by some very special names; my LORD, my strength, my rock, my glory, my fortress, my deliverer, my trust, my buckler, the horn of my salvation, my high tower.
He knew how to speak to God, until God will be compelled to say I must do something for this boy.
I want you to do that now for just about five minutes. Whatever you think God is to you, tell Him, my LORD , my saviour, my healer, my provider, the lover of my soul, my King, my teacher, my help, my supporter, my deliverer, my hope, you are all in all to me.
There is no body like you; in my Life, you are the greatest, in my life, you are the best, in my life, oh LORD! You are my LORD. You are the one I trust. You are my horn of salvation, you are my rock and I will lift you high, I will praise you, I will lift you high, I will adore you, I will magnify your name.
Because I have no one else but you, you are my friend, you are my supporter, you are my back bone, you are my hope, and you are the pillar that holds my life.
You are the reason why I am happy, wherever I am today is because of you and I will continue to tell the world that you are greater than the greatest, that you better than the best, that you are stronger, than the strongest, that you are richer than the richest, that you are wiser than the wisest, that you are older than the oldest.
I will tell the world that: you are Lamb of God, you are Word of God, you are the Way, you are the Truth, you are the Resurrection, you are the Light, I will tell the whole world that: you are Wonderful, that you are Kind, that you are Loving, that you are Faithful, that you are gentle.
I will tell the world; that you are reliable, I will tell the world that you can never fail, that you can never lie, that you can never disappoint. I will tell the whole world that there is no Father like you, that there is no friend like you, that you are the only one who can go with me through the valley of the shadow of death, that you are the only one who can walk through deep waters with me, that you are the only one who can be with me even in fire, I will tell the whole world that you are with me, I will tell the whole world that you always speak the truth because you are the Truth.
I will tell the whole world that you have never lied before, that you have never failed before, that you have never disappointed before.
You are the Rock of Ages, you are the Ancient of Days, I will tell the world, that you have no beginning, that you have no ending, I will tell the world, that you are the richest, that the earth is yours, that the fullness thereof is yours, I will let them know that silver is yours, gold is yours, that cattle upon a thousand hills are yours
I will tell the world that you made all things, that in the beginning, you are the word and you had always be there and I can always rely on you, I will praise you, I will adore you, I will magnify your name, just go ahead and tell Him, open your mouth…
… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
There is something we have not done for a long time, I feel the spirit leading me that we should do it tonight, I want you to think of your own song, I will think of my own, you will sing your own song to Him, I will sing my own to Him, we will combine it and it will be one big noise to the Almighty, begin to sing your song to the Almighty….
… In Jesus mighty name we worship.
Thank you Daddy, the LORD said there is someone here tonight; He said the plan to reduce you to nothing shall fail.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight; He said not only will I expose your enemy, He said everything they have taken form you I will restore.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight; He said very soon, you will shout for victory.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight; He said some recent happenings have shut your mouth, He asked me to tell you, your voice will soon be heard again loud and clear.
Hallelujah! The LORD said there is someone here tonight; He said, very soon, your song will be; how great is my God!
Daddy asked me to tell you, He said because you praise Him tonight, He is given you an opportunity to ask for three things. So go ahead and ask Him for three major things…
… So shall it be in Jesus name.
Everything you have asked for receive it now in Jesus name.
This night will be a night you will never forgot in Jesus name, your joy has just started in Jesus name. So shall it be in Jesus name we have prayed.
Put your hands together for the Almighty God.
Praise Him, thank you Jesus, glory be to your holy name, glory be to your holy name. Thank you Jesus, Thank you LORD. Thank you Jesus, blessed be your holy name, in Jesus mighty name we worship.
I want you to pray only one prayer tonight , tonight, lift your voice to the LORD and say father , in this month please give me a pleasant surprise. Let’s talk to the Almighty God… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Now I want you to please pray for Nigeria; say father, in this country give us a new beginning. A new beginning of progress, of success, of prosperity, of stability, of Joy, give us a new beginning in this new level of prosperity…
…In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Now let’s go before our maker, the Almighty God, let’s join the host of heaven as we worship the LORD.
Angels are singing, you are worthy oh LORD.
Angels are singing, you are worthy oh Lord.(worship)
Thank you Father!
Eternal rock of ages we want to worship you tonight, King of glory, the LORD, the LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle, the unchangeable changer, the beginning of all things, the end of everything, glory be to your holy name.
We thank you because we know you are greater than the greatest, you are better than the best. You are older than the oldest. You are wiser than the wisest, glory be to your holy name. Accept our worship in Jesus name.
Tonight, in the lives of everybody here, do something new, do something powerful, do something glorious, save souls tonight, heal tonight, deliver tonight, set free tonight, glorify your name tonight, do more than we dare hope for tonight.
At the end of everything tonight, let your name and your name alone be glorified. Thank you Daddy, glory be to your holy name, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen.
Let somebody shout hallelujah!
Shake hands with someone and say joy to the wise; that means joy to me, because I refuse to be a fool. You then put your hands together for the Almighty God and you may please be seated.
For those who are born in the month of June please stand and let me hear you shout hallelujah!
Father I want to commit all your children born in the month of June into your hands. I thank you on their behalf; that you are bringing them to another year in their lives.
On their behalf, LORD, accept our thanks in Jesus name. As there are beginning a new milestone in their lives, send help to them. Prosper them, defend them. Fight their battles for them, in all areas of their lives. Let it be well with them, in their new year, let it be better than the old, in this their new year let them serve you more than before. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Children of June congratulations! God will keep on blessing you.
Next month by the grace of God we are having the disciple’s convention beginning from the 1st Thursday to 1st Saturday of July and the theme which is also the theme for the Holy Ghost service is “BORN TO BE A BLESSING”.
I am born to be a blessing not a curse, and I am born to be a blessing to my family, a blessing to my town, a blessing to my country, and a blessing to the kingdom of God.
BORN TO BE A BLESSING! That is next month which will be an extremely glorious month in Jesus name.
I want to thank God for all those who had already ministered tonight, they all did very well, and they did better than the last time. From the beginning to the end all the preachers did well. The various choirs also tried but then as you know we have this kind of meeting once in a while so that you can perfect things, it is my duty as your coach to point out areas, where things would have been better. I have already been saying you all did well and I thought you would at least give yourself a round of applause.
The first zone, they sang choruses only, they didn’t give us any song, any hymn after that, I think they need to take note of that for next time. The preaching was good, very powerful, and very beneficial but there wasn’t enough time for people to pray, we need to pray in what we hear.
Second zone, they started with a hymn, then they moved to choruses and came back to hymn. I don’t know exactly what is going on here. If you want to start with choruses, start with choruses and then end with hymn and in any case one hymn would have been enough for the time slot that you have. The preaching was good and very beneficial, and everything was within time.
Third zone, the choir was super, they carried all of us in their choruses, even though we might not know the wordings of the song, we were dancing along with them and then the song they sang was very touching, even though we don’t know the meaning. The preaching was good and timing was okay, again they didn’t give us enough time or people to pray.
The last zone, the choir did well, but the first song has too much pepper in it. I have said before that there are songs you sing in a concert, which you don’t sing in an outreach or a crusade. In a concert, people are seating down, relaxed, they just more or less want to be entertained. In an outreach, in a crusade like this one, the people want to be involved in everything that is going on. They prefer songs that either they know it or they can easily fit into it. So why the song is very good, it might not be too appropriate for the occasion.
The preaching was good, beneficial, timing is okay but there wasn’t enough time again for the people to pray.
Now for all of us, all the preachers in an attempt to cover so much ground within your limited time, you didn’t give enough time for the interpreter. And you did not repeat your bible passage.
We need… (People shouting in agreement) you can see for yourself, the people are saying you didn’t give them enough time to write down those bible passages. We need time to write down the bible passages. Because it doesn’t matter what you say, the most important thing is the word of God… for ever oh LORD, the word is settled in heaven.
But having said all these; I want all those who preached tonight to know that I am very proud of you. You did very, very well. You make me feel comfortable; that I have people I can hand over to if the time is ready for me to depart. I am not going yet. When I am ready I will give you a hint.
Judges 15 v 9 – 15 “Then the Philistines went up and pitched in Judah, and spread themselves in Lehi. And the men of Judah said, why have you come up against us? And they answered, to bind Samson are we come up, to do to him as he hath done to us. Then three thousand men of Judah went to the top of the rock Etam, and said to Samson, Knowest thou not that the Philistines are rulers over us? What is this that thou hast done unto us? And he said unto them, as they did unto me, so have I done unto them. And they said unto him we have come down to bind thee that we may deliver thee into the hand of the Philistines. And Samson said unto them, Swear unto me that you will not fall upon me yourselves. And they spake unto him, saying, No; but we will bind thee fast and deliver thee into their hand: but surely we will not kill thee. And they bind him with two new cords and brought him up from the rock. And when he came unto Lehi, the Philistines shouted against him: and the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and the cords that were upon his arms become as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands loosed from off his hands. And he found a new jaw bone of an ass, and put forth his hand and took it and slew a thousand men therewith.”
I want you to shake hands with the fellow next to you and say get ready for a new beginning and then put those hands together for God.
That is not part of the preaching, it is just something from the LORD…
The story we have just read is about Samson, after the Philistines, had cheated and he fought back and then he went to hide himself on a rock and his relatives came to him, and they said we have come to bind you and to hand you over to the enemy.
And they bound him, brought him back from the rock, and handed him over to the enemy.
Then the enemies began to rejoice and God heard the rejoicing of the enemies and He arose. And when He arose, things began to happen. God is about to arise for someone tonight. Because of the numerous sermons you have already heard tonight and because time had already gone, I will be brief.
The first thing we see in this story is that usually the biggest enemy is the enemy within. It is the relatives of Samson that bound him, not the enemies without, it is the enemy within. The elders will say; If the enemy within does not kill you, the enemies without will not be able to kill you.
But I have good news for you tonight, both the enemies within and the enemies without, God will take care of them tonight, the LORD said in Matthew 10v36, He said a man’s foes will be people o his own household. The enemies within bound Samson and handed him over to the enemy without.
Almost invariably, there are people within you, who are only too ready to hand you over to the enemies without. But if God is for you, then there is nobody who can be against you.
In Genesis 37 v 28 The Bible says the brothers of Joseph saw him coming and they say, oh! Behold the dreamer comes, let us kill him and see what will become of his dreams.
Well they didn’t succeed in killing him, because God was with him, yet they sold him to the enemies, but all they did was to help him to reach his destiny. All those who are trying to kill your dreams, they are going to be disappointed, because the dreams that God has given you, they will all come to pass.
When they were bringing Samson from the mountain, God was silent, he was looking at them and just smiling, he is asking them to do whatever they want to do first; because God has his time table.
There are some of us who are here today, we have been praying and we haven’t gotten an answer yet, but I believe God, that you will get the answer tonight.
In Psalm 2 v 1-5 The Bible tells us that the heathens may be raging, they might be making their own plans concerning the anointed of God, we will do this to him, we will do that to him, and the Bible says He that seats in the heaven shall laugh.
I have a rough idea why God choose the theme, “LET GOD ARISE” for this particular month, is that He is about to laugh at your enemies.
In Psalm 115 v 1-3 The Bible tell us that when people are beginning to ask, where is your God? It is then that God will say, I am here, I am still seating in my heaven doing whatsoever pleases me.
I want to encourage somebody here today, I know God may be silent, it may appear as if you haven’t heard anything from him, but I want you to be sure of one thing, God is not dead, God is not asleep, God has not travelled, right now, He is in the heavens and He is waiting for a particular moment tonight, to arise for you, if you are the one I am speaking to, let me hear you say Amen loud and clear.
Almost three times tonight, one preacher after the other had read Psalm 102 v 13 and they didn’t know it is in my note because I didn’t show them my note.
But Psalm 102 v 13 says: “Thou shall arise and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea the said time has come”
I am sure, that there are at least three of us here tonight, myself, my wife and at least one fellow, I have the confident that the time to favor us has come.
The LORD says there is someone here; He says the regular tragedies among the men in your family, come to an end tonight.
The LORD says that there is someone here, you may not know it, but there is an age old curse that says the people in your family must always beg for help. The LORD asked me to tell you, that curse is broken now.
Thank you Daddy, the LORD said there is someone here tonight, He says things have been particularly difficult since the beginning of this year, He asked me to tell you, the siege is over.
The LORD says there is someone here tonight; He said the door I promised you is opened at last.
So they brought Samson down, bound by enemies within, handed over to enemies without and the enemies began to rejoice. It is wrong for anybody to rejoice over me, when I am not yet dead.
So those who are rejoicing over you, when you are not yet dead, they are rejoicing prematurely, because Micah 7 v 8 says “rejoice not against me o my enemy: when I fall I shall arise”. Tell your neighbor, I am going to arise you know!
You cannot bury a man who is not yet dead. As long as you are still breathing there is still hope for you.
Ecclesiast 9 v 4 says to him that is joined to the all living there is hope. He said because a living dog is better than a dead lion.
I may be like an ordinary dog, I may be nobody, I may be a messenger now, nobody may know my name, but I am still living, so don’t rejoice over me yet, because I know my tomorrow will be alright.
Tell your neighbor, whether the enemies like it or not, I am going to rise.
When an enemy begins to rejoice over you, it is a good sign, it is a good sign because it means God is about to arise for you, but God doesn’t like enemies rejoicing over His children at all.
You will remember very well, when the children of Israel were in Egypt and God sent Moses to go and bring them out. In Exodus 5v2 Pharaoh said, who is God, I don’t know him, so I am not going to let Israel go.
God heard and smiled, by the time we got to Exodus 12 you can read it from beginning to verse 33, Pharaoh who said who is God? And why would I let Israel go, I won’t let Israel go. The same Pharaoh, begged Israel to depart.
I decree to someone here tonight, all those who have been holding you down, they will release you urgently tonight in Jesus name
In this story there is something I found very interesting, that is that God arose, but He arose just in time. When they were bringing Samson down from the mountain, he said nothing, he did nothing, he was watching as they were binding him, he did nothing he said nothing. Even when they brought him before the enemy, he sat down comfortably. In fact when they began to shout, he still wasn’t doing anything, because he wanted to rejoice a little. But he arose just in time.
There are many of us who think God is late, he is never late. He is always on time and I am rejoicing with somebody here today, because you are going to have a new beginning.
Psalm 46 v 1 says our God is the ever present help in trouble. Just when you think, even you don’t do something now, I am done for, He will step in.
Isaiah 59 v 19 says that when the enemy tries to come in like a flood, the Spirit of God will raise up a standard against them, in other words, He is not going to allow the flood to swallow you. I know some of you who think maybe now you may not survive. I have good news for you; your testimony will be great.
You remember in the case of Sheldrake, Meshach and Abednego, when they were binding them, the LORD didn’t say anything, when they were hitting the furnace, making it seven times better than normal, He didn’t do anything, He was just watching, when they were carrying them to throw them into fire, He didn’t say anything, but the moment they were about to land in the fire, He was there waiting. And I have good news for you; He is already waiting for you.
But then, God arose in time things began to happen. The Spirit of God rest upon Samson and the Spirit of God is going to come on someone tonight.
The ropes binding him were burnt as if it has caught fire and the weapon he needed to kill a thousand of his enemies have been strategically positioned by the Almighty God.
In Isaiah 41v 11- 14, the Almighty God said there, He said I am going to help you and He said it three times, He said by the time I finish helping you, He said you will search for your enemies you will not find them.
You see the passage that almost all the preachers have used, “LET GOD ARISE AND HIS ENEMIES BE SCATERED”. It is written for you, why I know it is written for you is this; the only enemies that God have, are the enemies of His children.
Nobody is strong enough to fight with God and in any case the one you are going to fight is somebody you can see. You can’t see God, you can’t travel to where He is seated, and you don’t even know His address. So when we talk of the enemies of God, we are talking about the enemies of the children of God and it says, whenever God arise; the enemies of God which are the enemies of the children of God they will all be scattered.
Now in the case of Samson, some of them did not run fast enough, about a thousand were slow and those who are slow, they died, those who are wise they fled.
I have good news for you, the enemies that will not flee from you, you will attend their funerals.
Let me say that one again, those enemies that will not run from you, even before the end of this month, you will attend their funerals. Because when God says, you will seek them and you will not find them, it means it is either they run away from you, or they have buried them so that you won’t see them again. I am believing God for you tonight, before this day is out, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, you will be free and free indeed.
Probably the most important aspect of this story is the jaw bone, it is jaw bone, not the leg bone. What does that tells us? The jaw bone is the controller of the mouth. You may not have the jaw bone of an ass, but you have your own jaw bone.
One of the preachers mentioned two keys by which you can cause God to arise. He said one is by prayer, he said the other by praise. He is correct, but the truth of the matter is this, when you pray God will send an angel to go and give you your miracle, it is when you praise Him, that you cause Him to stand.
When you use your jaw bone, to praise God, you cause him to arise.
Before you are born again, you used to attend parties and you know how the musicians behave, you gather at the party and you are eating, drinking, seating beside the gutter somewhere in Lagos and you light mosquitoes killer and eating, drinking beer.
The musicians comes round and they begin to collect your name and some little, little details, many at times, I am talking of Lagos in the olden days, things might have changed now; you go to theses party with a borrowed dress, so that you will appear big, all your salary is in your pocket.
Now the time come and the musicians begin to sing and they begin to take you one by one, they mentioned your name, and they begin to call you things that it is not even yours. So they begin to call you managing director, when you are a messenger; when you have no job, they call you emergency contractor, and so on. And as they begin to call you names, things that you are not, your head will begin to swell.
And then you get up, now as you get up, something deep within you begins to warn you, where are you going? I am going to spray the musician that is the only money you have, you borrowed the money. But the musicians keep on calling you and you tell the voice shut up, when we get home we will sought that out. So you came to the party with all your salary, you go home with nothing. Now that is you!
But God is everything you can call Him and much, much more, so when you begin to call Him; King of kings, LORD of lords, I AM that I AM, Ancient of Days, Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Holy one of Israel, Unchangeable Changer, the Almighty, the Most High, the Greatest, the Best, the Strongest, the Wisest, and He will seat down in the heavens and will look at the angels,
Because all that the angels knows is holy, holy, holy, the Lord God Almighty, the earth is full of your glory, that is all, then God hears from redemption camp, voices rises up to Him saying, you are the Truth, you are the Way, you are the Resurrection, you are the Life, you are one who never lost a battle, you are the LORD, Strong and Mighty in battle, you are the LORD of Host, you are the King of Glory, you are the Great Physician, you are the Great Provider, you are the Great Healer.
He gets up from His throne and says, I must pay these people a visit and the angels will say where are you going LORD? He will say I am going to visit Adeboye tonight, there is somebody here calling me, calling me by my names, there is somebody here who knows me, who knows what I want, I want to pay him a visit.. And when He gets up, the earth begins to tremble. When He takes the right leg, the earth shakes to the right, when he takes another leg to the left, the earth begins to shake to the left.
By the time He arrives, there will be an earthquake prison doors will be forced opens, yoke will begin to break, jailers will begin to bow down, those who are holding you captives will become your servant, is there anybody here tonight, who is ready to praise the Almighty God, let me first of all hear you shout hallelujah.
We are going to spend some time praising Him tonight, but before we do that one, let us be fair, to all those who don’t know Him yet, because God wants to do something tonight which He has not done before, and those who are not born again you can’t have part in it, unless you come and surrender your life to him.
If you say you are praising Him when we are praising Him and you are not yet born again; His word says the sacrifices of the wicked is an abomination to God, in other words if you want to praise Him when you are not yet born again , but if you will give your life to Him tonight, His blood will wash away your sins, you will become a member of the family of God and your praise will become acceptable to Him, so if you have not given your life to Jesus, I will give you some minute to come forward and give your life to him…
I want to thank you for your word, thank you because the time has come that you want to set your children free, thank you because the time has come that you want to favor us, please accept our thanks in Jesus name.
I am thanking you for these your children who have come forward tonight, receive them in Jesus name, and forgive them in Jesus name. Let your blood wipe away all their sins in Jesus name, save their souls tonight in Jesus name, write their names in the book of life and anytime they call on you from now, please answer them in Jesus name, thank you Father, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Pastor E. A. Adeboye

As you know next month by the grace of God is the month of our convention. From the 3rd of August to the 9th of August, there will be miracle galore, from morning, to evening, to night. The theme of the convention is THE HOPE OF GLORY. That means by the special grace of God before the convention is over, anything call shame would have disappeared from your life.
So prepare to attend, from the 3rd to the 9th of August, it is going to be an extremely glorious convention, that is what my Father told me, he said it is going to be far, far the best convention we have ever had.. So tell all your friends and relatives, glory be to God.
For those of you who watch this program on the TV and on the internet, I want you to know that we are constantly praying for you also. And the power of the Almighty God will reach out to you wherever you are also. But for those of you who are near enough to attend, I want to encourage you to make sure that you are here every first Friday of the month, because wherever God says there is someone here tonight; He is talking of somebody who is physically here, so make sure you come, that is why we put it on Friday night when you will be free to attend. And the LORD will answer your prayers in Jesus name.
Genesis 12 v 1- 3 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shall be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Do you know that a Christian does not even have to worry about his enemies? Because the promise of God is that those who curse you are already cursed and those who bless you are already blessed.
I rejoice with my friends, because they are already blessed. I pitied my enemies and I pray they will repent.
It is a very good thing to be blessed, because blessing is the opposite of a curse, Deut 28 v 23 tells us some of the things that a curse can do, it said a curse can close the window of heaven, it can harden the earth. A curse can turn a heaven to brass and the earth to iron. Which means anyone who is under a curse and he is planting, he is sowing on a soil that is iron and he can never get a harvest.
Haggai 1v 6 & 9 tells us that when somebody is under a curse, whatever he earns will be going to a bag with hole and anything left , God said he will blow away .
That is why I pray for those of you who are here tonight, every curse in your family, shall be cancelled tonight.
On the other hand, blessing causes heaven to help; Gen. 27 v 28 says that when somebody is blessed he will enjoy the dew of heaven. In other words, he will be getting rain at the proper time and the one who is under a blessing, according to the same Gen. 27 v 28; will discover that the earth would be cooperating with him, so that whenever he sows, harvest will be great.
And according to Malachi 3 v 8 – 11, the Almighty God said the moment somebody begins to pay his tithe and offering and the curses in his or her life are removed; all devourers are restrained.
So when somebody is blessed, he showed little and he harvests much and devourers are told not to come near him at all. That is why I am praying for someone tonight, simply because you came, from now on you will start living under a blessing.
When someone is blessed, it is not only he will be receiving reward, effort will be producing fruit, even opportunities that he has lost will be restored according to Joel 2v 23-27. When God decides to bless, he says there will be restoration, He said even the years that have been eaten by the worm and the caterpillars have eaten, the Almighty God says He will restore.
I pray for somebody here tonight that everything that the devil has stolen from you, before the end of this month, they will all be restored in Jesus name.
It is a wonderful thing to be blessed; I have always told you that you must not toy with blessing. The greatest prayer anybody can pray for you is God bless you; because the moment he says God bless you, he says that help will come to you from heaven, help will come to you from the earth and adversaries will be kept at bay.
So I am saying to someone here tonight, God bless you.
But there is something better than being blessed. That is to be a blessing. When the Almighty God was speaking to Abraham in the text we read in Gen. 12 v 1-3, He promised him seven major blessings. He said I will make of thee a great nation, number two; He said I will bless you, number three, He said I will make your name great, and number four, He said and thou shall be a blessing. Number five, He said I will bless them that bless thee, number six He said I will curse him that cursed thee, and number seven He said in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
Maybe because I happen to be a mathematician, I wrote the seven blessings out, and I see that the middle one is the number four, the others revolve around the middle one, the middle one is and you shall be a blessing. There is no greater blessing than for you to become a blessing.
When you read Psalm 23 v 1- 5, you will see all the blessings that David said accrued to him because he is a sheep of the Almighty God; he said because the Lord is my shepherd, I will lack nothing, he said I have plenty of food to eat, I have good sleep to sleep, when I am thirsty; there is water for me to drink. When I need guidance; he will guide me, when I am going somewhere; he will be there leading the way, if I go astray; he will be there restoring me, he said even when I am passing through danger; he will be there, he said even If I make a mistake; he will correct me so that I won’t go too far.
He said even in the presence of my enemies I will be enjoying. He listed all these great blessings, and then he added the big one; my cup runs over. I am blessed and I have become a blessing.
I pray for someone here tonight, even before the end of this year, they will call you a blessing.
If you read Deut. 28 v 1- 12, you will see all the blessings pertaining to anyone who is obedient to God.
Blessings will be many, you will be running away from them, they will be pursuing you and over taking you, enemies will come in one way they will flee seven ways and so on and so forth and then he concluded; you will now begin to lend to nations. You will now become a blessing to nations.
I have said it before, there are many people who think they are rich, you don’t know the meaning of wealth until nations begins to come to you to borrow and there is somebody listening to me right now, very soon nations of the world will come to you for assistance.
If you read Leviticus 25 v 25, 47 – 49 the Bible says if your relatives become poor not you, in the mighty name of Jesus you will never know poverty again. He said if one of your relatives waxes poor and he sells part of his property, it said you should go and buy it back. It said if he becomes so poor, that he sells himself, it said you should go and buy him back.
Now the one who is going to buy somebody back must have more than enough, I pray for somebody here today, for the rest of your life, overflowing blessings will be your lot.
In Romans 15 v 1 it said those who are strong should help the weak that means you have to be strong before you can help the weak. You cannot be sick and pray for the sick that is why in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ you won’t know sickness again.
Job 22v 23 -29 the Bible says once there is no quarrel between you and God, you become a blessed person and you will have abundance. He said then whenever people say there is a casting down you will say there is a lifting up.
In order words, when you are thoroughly, thoroughly blessed you will become a blessing to others, because you are solidly grounded, you will be able to look down and lift up those who are not grounded. I said to somebody once again tonight for the rest of your life you will be a blessing.
From the scripture we see that it is possible to be a blessing to an individual, in Acts 17 v 1-8 Peter was a blessing to a lame beggar. When we talk about being a blessing, we are not talking about giving money, or giving clothe alone, here is someone who was lame, and somebody is able to walk and leap and praise God.
That is why I asked you to pray, LORD empower me; through me let the lame walk, let the blind see, let the deaf hear, let the dead rise, how many of you pray that prayer with all your heart, so you can be a blessing to an individual and you can be a blessing to a whole city; Act 8 v 5 – 8 the Bible said Philip brought joy to a city, he brought joy to the city of Samaria, and I am believing God with you that the village you came from will be blessed.
And of course you can become a blessing to a nation, in Genesis 41 v 33- 44 we see Joseph becoming a blessing to a whole nation of Egypt. I pray to the Almighty God that among those who are listening tonight, God will raise up someone that will changed the fortune of Nigeria.
And of course you can be a blessing to the whole world; In John 1 v 29 when John saw Jesus coming he said behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the whole world. A single man became a blessing to the whole world!
Thank you Father, the LORD said tonight, he is going to work particularly on the blood system of the people present. He is going to purify blood here tonight.
Hallelujah, the LORD said there is someone here tonight, he asked me to assure you, I have helped you before, I will help you again.
And you too can become a blessing to the whole world. How?
In Acts 1 v 8 He says you will receive power after the Holy Ghost has come upon you and you will be my witness in Jerusalem; that is your home town, in Judea; that is your country and in Samaria; that is the countries near your own and in outermost part of the world.
I believe God very firmly, that those of us who are gathered tonight, the Almighty God will raise up somebody who will become a blessing to the whole world.
Now the question is how can I be a blessing to the whole world? Very simple, since you already know God,Daniel 1 v 32 says they that do know their God shall do exploit.
I know God, you know him, so how will the knowledge of God turn us to become a blessing to all? He said by witnessing, by telling the people who we know.
For example, you know and I know that this God is the great physician; Exodus 15 v26 He says I am the Lord that heals thee, I am the great physician. When this God performs an operation, He doesn’t split a drop of blood. The first time he performed an operation on Adam, he didn’t spill a blood. That is why I am praying to God for those of you who might need an operation; God will do it tonight, here right now in name of Jesus. In Psalm 107 v 29 the Bible said He sent His word and He heals them and He delivered them from all their destructions.
You know Him to be a healer, 1 John 2 v 24 it says by His stripes you are healed. Others don’t know this, so you go ahead and tell them. If you can convince them about this God who is the great physician, they will receive their own healing too.
For example in Mark 1 v 40 – 45 the Bible said a leper came to Jesus and said I know, that you can make me clean if you are willing. And then Jesus healed him and then Jesus said don’t tell anyone.
He laughed how will I not tell anyone? I was a leper, I was living in the bush and I came to you and you healed me. How can I keep quiet, I will tell everybody and he went everywhere telling everybody. And as a result of histestimony many people came to Jesus Christ and received their healing.
You can be a blessing by testifying to the healing power of Jesus Christ.
I have told you how do I come to believe in divine healing, when I got born again, I was always sick every two, two weeks, you can go to the University of Lagos hospital and see; my file is still there.
Then I became born again and I hear preacher preaching; Jesus is the great physician, you don’t need medicine, he will heal you. Then I laughed at them; you are looking for someone you want to kill. You have shown me the way to heaven, don’t send me there quickly.
How do I know, what you are doing in your own secret room!
But there was a man in the church about 86 yrs old, walking with a walking stick, bent double, that is how I met him in the church, then one Sunday morning I came to church, papa was standing straight, no walking stick, what happened to this old man and then they told us he would share his testimony in the evening service, I was the first person there that evening.
So papa was telling his testimony; that he went to his home town for a little holiday and as his practice was; early in the morning he was going from house to house witnessing and then the devil spoke to him and said “old man why are you deceiving people, go home and sit down, if your Jesus is so powerful, why didn’t he heal you?”
And he said when he heard that, an holy anger rose up within him and he said Satan! you are laughing at my God? He said an holy anger rose up within him , he said if I am going to die I will die, he took the walking stick and broke it into two, threw it away and he decided to walk straight.
Now he told us that when he was very young he contacted a venereal disease and any time he tried to walk straight, his stomach will be burning like fire that is why he bent double. He said when he stretched up, suddenly the fire began again, and I was listening closely because this man is not a preacher, he is just a member of the congregation.
He said he tuned and he began to go home, he said the pain increased as he was going, but he kept on saying; Satan I will never bend again, I am not going to allow you to laugh at my God, he said sweat covered him and he was feeling faint, he said he called to God, do one thing for me, if I am going to die, don’t let me die in the street, let me get home before I die.
I knew this man was telling the truth, so I was waiting: what happen, what happened!
He said he continued on his way home, he said as he stepped on the threshold of his house, the pain disappeared.
From the day I heard that testimony, I made up my mind, Jesus will be my doctor, that is more than thirty eight years now and he will remain my doctor till I see Him in glory.
Tell others what you know your God can do, let them know that he is the great physician, but then he can do more according to Mark 16v 17…
Thank you LORD, the LORD said there is someone here tonight, he said you were notably prosperous before, he asked me to tell you, I will restore you.
Thank you LORD, the LORD said there is someone here tonight who is worried sick, the LORD asked me to tell you, I am still on my throne.
Mark 16 v 17 the word of God says these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name they shall cast out demons; will lay hands on the sick and they will recover, . You can be a blessing unto others; by praying for the sick, by laying hands on them.
I know some of you will say I think that is or pastor, no, no it says these signs shall follow them that believe, it didn’t say these signs shall follow the pastors alone, it didn’t say these signs shall follow the general overseer alone. These signs shall follow them that believe! How many of you believe in the LORD Jesus Christ? From now on when you lay hands on the sick they shall recover, I thought you will say amen.
I know some of you would say suppose I laid hand on them and they didn’t recover. Go ahead and lay hands on the next fellow, you are not the healer, God is the healer. Keep on laying hands and God will begin to work.
When I began laying hands on the sick, I wasn’t at this level when I started; I started with my children; maybe the boy is out playing foot ball and he runs in, daddy , daddy I have head ache, in those days I still make sure I have plenty of medicine at home, I make sure it is there. And I will say God I am going to lay hands on this fellow if nothing happens then we go the other way; because my faith was small then.
But God honored my little faith, I lay hands on the child, and in every case within five minutes it is either the child is fully asleep or has gone out to play.
When I finished with my children then I was bold enough to go into my sitting room to begin to pray for my friend. Friends who will not go and tell people if I fail, but God kept backing me up.
Now I can go anywhere, knowing full well that these signs shall follow them that believe.
How many of you believe that from now on God will begin to use you to heal?
Tell people that He is the great healer!
Number two tell people that He is the great deliverer, the Bible says in John 8 v 36 it says whosoever the son shall set free, shall be free indeed. Let the world know that Jesus is the Great Deliverer.
There are many of your friends looking for deliverance, going to herbalist, asking the devil to help them deliver them from the devil. Darkness cannot deliver you from darkness. It is who can deliver, Jesus Christ is the Light of the world, He is the greatest deliverer.
And there are many of us here, who have been delivered by Him. Tell others, that is how you can be a blessing to them.
In Mark 5 v 1 – 20 when the mad man of Gadarenes was set free and when he said he wanted to follow Jesus , Jesus Christ said no, he said go and tell your people, tell them that you were once mad , now you are free, he went, he told the people and a multitudes came to be blessed. A former mad man now became a blessing to many.
I think it was 1979 when we held a program at Ibadan grammar school. And a man came there; when he was going abroad, his family called a party, everybody was eating and drinking and eating, unknown to them there was somebody who was envious and who put a poison into his body.
The boy left for Britain and everyday he was in Britain there was fire burning inside of him. The doctor examined everything, they said everything is clear, no problem. The boy said I am in pain. So he eat pain killer all the time that he was abroad. He returned and became a lecture at Ahmadu Bello University, and the pain continues.
Until somebody told him, there was a program going on in Ibadan, if you get there God will set you free. He came, I was preaching, he came said he wanted to be prayed for, they said sit down the man of God is preaching and the word of God went forward and hit him where he was and suddenly the pain went away. The man began to cry; it is gone! It is gone! Even when the service was on! His testimony became a blessing to everybody there. Whatever is in your system that is not put there by God shall go now in Jesus name. But you must tell others.
In Mark 16 v 17 it says if you want to be a blessing unto others, these signs shall follow those who believe they will cast out demons.
Nobody said somebody must be especial deliverance minister. Every believer is supposed to be able to cast out demons but sir if I ask the demons to go and they don’t go. Soon as you have commanded them leave the remaining to Jesus Christ. You are not the one who will help them pack their load. Once you have spoken it is already done. In the name that is above every other names, when you ask devil to go they will obey you. In the name of Jesus whenever you ask the devil to move they will obey you.
Now I know some of you have seen deliverance been conducted, it has given you a wrong impression of how to go about it. You are not to struggle with the devil, just command, in Matthew 8 v 16 the Bible said Jesus cast out demons with His word, go and they must go.
I have told you the story of a boy who since the day he was born, he always wanted to go into the fire. So the parents kept him away from the kitchen. And we had a program at Oshogbo grammar school and he came to that program and he told the brethren that he wants a deliverance and the brethren was getting ready to conduct a deliverance service for him. And they saw me coming and they said that is good, brother come and I join us. And they told me the problem.
I said I was ready to join you provided you allow me to pray first, because I saw the way they were rolling up their shirts, they were getting ready for battle.
I said let me pray first. So I said in the name of Jesus, I bind all the forces tormenting this child and I decree they lose him and let him go in Jesus name I pray. I turned my back and I began to go.
They asked; is that all? I said what else? They said they have not seen him shaken, I said I am not going to wait here and ask the devil to pack his load in my presence; if you want the devil to entertain you he will do so.
I command in the name that is above every other name. Every demon that followed you here will not go with you In Jesus name.
Testify that He is the Great Deliverer and you yourself confront the devil and command the devil to move. Testify that he is the Great Provider. Psalm 23 v1 David said the LORD is my shepherd I shall not want.
Thank you LORD, the LORD said there is someone here tonight, He said your days of complaining are over.
Ps. 25 v 10 David said the young lion do lack and suffer hunger, but they that seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.
Philippians 4 v 19 said my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. He is the great provider.
And I am sure you will testify to the provision of God, no matter how critical the situation, he will come through at the right moment.
I pray for somebody here tonight, all those who are looking forward to your days of shame, they will wait for long. He is the great provider. I can tell you many stories about his provision.
When we were building the first auditorium, and we were hurrying up so that the place will be ready for the convention; then we ran out of money completely and the carpenter, who was leading the construction came to me. He said Sir we need two hundred and four naira. I said I will send for you later. He said two hundred and four naira; I said I will send for you later. He didn’t know I did not have anything and so he went grumbling.
He is the one who said we are slow and yet he will not put down money.
I raised my eyes to God and said Father I hope you heard him, you are the only one who provides. And since I asked I prayed all night asking God for provision
Let me ask you a question at this moment, how many of you believe that when you pray God hears? How many of you believe that if He hears He is going to answer?
How many of you know that he is going to provide for all your needs? Let me hear you shout hallelujah!
I had prayed all night asking God to provide, because I had nothing with me. And so this man came asking for two hundred and four naira, and I said I will give him when I have it.
Since there was nothing else I could do, I felt asleep. When I woke up there was a man sitting in front of my office, I saw a man sitting down at the door step of my office, he was eating his breakfast.
I asked him what the problem was, he said when he came and saw me sleeping on my table and he didn’t want to disturb me. He saw me and sat down, I said this man’s problem must be big; he is sitting on the door so that I won’t be able to escape.
So I said young man what is your problem? He said I have no problem, I have just collected my house rent and God said I should come and give it to you. When I came I found you sleeping so I said I can eat the breakfast while you are asleep.
I collected the envelope, prayed for him and he left. When he left I opened the envelope and inside the envelope was one thousand two hundred naira. So I sent for the carpenter, when he came, now I can swagger; how much did you say you need?
There is somebody here today all those who are waiting to see your nakedness, God will disappoint them.
Tell others that he is the great provider, and then you must teach these people; the principle of the kingdom of God.
Luke 6 v 38, says give and you shall be given, don’t close your mouth teach them, you are not the one who wrote the Bible, teach them.
Galatians 6 v 7 says sow and you shall reap. You will not believe it that by the time I became General Overseer, we were one of the poorest people on the face of the earth; because in those days we did not give offering, you don’t want to even talk about it.
I said this thing is in the Bible, there is only one way out of poverty; give and you shall be given.
Anyone who will not give is not likely to go beyond begging, and the best time to give is when it is difficult to give, it is in the time of famine that you must sow
I know it is not easy but I have learnt from experience, if you do what God says, God will do what he says He will do.
I have told you the story before, still talking about the same auditorium; the first auditorium. When we wanted to finally put the asbestos sheet, we needed seventeen thousand naira. Naira was powerful in those days, and naira will be powerful again in Jesus name.
And the area pastor was to build a dormitory each, and one of them came to me, Daddy our dormitory has reached finishing level and we need one thousand naira to complete it. I don’t know how he knew that I had one thousand naira.
I had one thousand naira and I am looking for sixteen thousand. And this man came and said I should give him one thousand, I told him that if you don’t get out of my office… he has never heard me speak like that before so he began to run.
Then I heard God speak to me, “give him the money” If I didn’t know the voice of God I would have said get thee behind me Satan, but I know who was speaking.
So I called him back and I gave him the one thousand, so he was galloping away in joy, I said it is not your fault, your problem is solved now I am back to square one.
God spoke to me “Son why are you grumbling, there were two problems, we have used you to solve one, only one more problem remains” And before that day was out, somebody came from Port Harcourt, a woman who said I have just collected my rent, and God said I should go and give it to you. I prayed for her, she left, I opened the envelope; seventeen thousand naira. Exactly what I needed!
That God, who has never let me down, will never let you down.
Testify; tell others that He is the help of the helpless, Psalm 46 v 1
Thank you Jesus; the Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said I will open your spiritual ear so that you will hear me more clearly. Thank you LORD.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said you may think I am slow but my timing for your miracle will be perfect.
Psalm 46 v 1 the Bible says; God is an ever present help in the time of trouble. Psalm 27 v 10 it said even when my mother and my father forsake me, God will pick me up. He is the help of the helpless. 1Samuel 2 v 8 the Bible say he can pick up a beggar from the dunghill and raise him up until he begins to sit among princes.
In 1 Samuel 2v 9 it said by strength shall no man prevail.
It is not by strength that you will reach your goal, it is by the help of the Almighty God, and there is a God who is the help of the helpless. Teach others, tell them; there is a God who can help you, when you feel helpless.
There are problems you can never solve yourself; transfer these problems to the help of the helpless.
Tell others that it is written in 1Peter 5 v 7 it said cast all your care upon Him because he cares for you. When I face a problem I can’t solve, I pray and I go to sleep.
People have asked me: How are you able to sleep with all the problems we know you must have? With all these churches, we know the more the challenges and you don’t have problem you look peaceful all the time.
Because there is somebody who is the help of the helpless, there is somebody who is the burden bearer. And I don’t know who God is speaking to tonight, but I want to assure you, he will help you bear your burden.
My first year as the General Overseer, was a very turbulent year, the devil knew I was young, then he raised up some challenges; anytime I travelled, and I returned my wife will have the catalogue of the problem waiting for me; we have this problem in this town, this church in that town is about to be closed down, etc.
When she has finished I will say where is my food? She will say you didn’t hear all I said? I would say I heard you but let me eat. When I finished eating, let us pray, after praying, I will say let us go to bed. She would say out of all these things that I have said you have no comment.
I will say I can’t carry the problem of God for him and in any case weeping may endure for the night, joy cometh in the morning. If my joy is coming tomorrow morning, why must I lose my sleep tonight?
How many of you believe that your tomorrow will be alright? There is somebody who is the help of the helpless. Let others know that is one way you can be a blessing to them
Thank you Father, the Almighty God said there is someone here tonight; He said all those things that are draining your resources He said I will deal with them.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight, He said you are surrounded on all side by the enemies, He said I will walk through them to deliver you.
Number five, tell them that He is the controller of times and season. Tell everybody; tell others that this God, the God you serve is the controller of time and season. Daniel 2 v 20 – 21, He says He controls time and seasons. Rev. 1 v 8 says He is the Alpha and the Omega; He is The Beginning and The Ending. He knows what is going to happen tomorrow, He knows it from the foundation of world. Your future is not in the hands of anybody; your future is in the hands of the one who is called the Omega.
No matter how powerful anybody may be in your place of work who says I will see to it that you are not promoted, tell the fellow my future is not in your hands, my future is in the hands of the one whose name is omega.
Use Joseph as an example to others, for years he was forgotten in prison, when God’s time came, in less than twenty four hours; he moved from being a prisoner to being a prime minister. God controls time, I know some of you may have been saying I have been praying, when will my time come? I have a feeling that your time has come. How do I know in John 2 v 1 – 11 Jesus was invited to a wedding and they ran out of wine, His mother came to him and said they needed wine, He said my time to perform miracle has not yet come. But that very day, he who said His time has not yet come, performed a miracle.
I believe that because you are here tonight, even that which is not time for, shall be done tonight in Jesus name.
Tell others He is the controller of seasons; tell others, he has the ability to change not yet to now.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said I will anoint you afresh so that you can become a help to multitude.
Thank you LORD, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, from the day you were born, you have suffered. Nobody to help, he asked me to tell you, I will reach out and help you.
Number six tell others that he is the All sufficient one, Gen. 17 v 1 the Bible calls him the Jehovah El-shaddai; the God who is more than enough. Psalm 24 v 1, the Bible says the earth is the Lord and the fullness thereof, anything that you can ever need is in his hands. Haggai 2 v 8 says silver is mine, gold is mine. He is the All Sufficient One that is why you must teach others to pray; because there is nothing you ask from him that he will not give.
Bible scholar said that John 14 v 14 where Jesus Christ said if you ask anything in my name I will do it, they said what He says in the original is that if you ask anything from me that I don’t have, I will create it for you. If you can think of something I forgot to create when I create the world, he said I will do it for you.
Somebody heard that and said to the man who was interpreting and said in that case why don’t you ask God to give you cow with four heads, the man said what do I need four head for? Instead of that I will ask for four cows, if you want the head, I will give you the head, I will keep the body.
But the point is this, God can do absolutely anything!
Ephesians 3 v 20 it said He is able to do abundantly exceedingly above what you can ask or think. Some people will say but I have been praying, I have not gotten the answer yet. In the Mighty name of Jesus, you will testify this month.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight, He said you were once a terror to the devil before you fell, the LORD said, I will restore you.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said it doesn’t look like it now, He said but you are going to end up being the greatest blessing to your family.
How can I be a blessing to all? By witnessing, by telling them what I know about God; He is the greatest physician, He can cure the incurable, He is the greatest deliverer, whenever He sets free, the person is free indeed, He is the great provider; He can meet all needs. He is the help of the helpless, he can help anybody, He is the controller of times and seasons and so He can change not yet to now. He is the All- sufficient one, everything you can ever need is available with Him, then tell them He is the controller of heaven.
Heaven belongs to him Isaiah 66 v 1 He says heaven is my throne and the earth is my foot stool, Gen. 1 v 1 He says in the beginning, God created the heaven and earth, He is the creator of heaven and earth.
Heaven belongs to him, it is His throne, Jesus said in John 14 v 1 He said in my Father’s house there are many mansions, he called heaven His Father’s house.
If you really want to be a blessing, remind everybody that Jesus is coming very again, He said so.
In the same John 14 v 3 He said I am going to prepare a place for you, when I finish preparing a place, He said I will come again. In Rev. 22 v 12 he said behold I come quickly.
The greatest blessing that you can be to anyone is to prepare them for heaven, let them know that unless they are born again, they will not enter in. Let them know that even though they are born again and they are not living holy, they won’t get there.
You can be a blessing to people by getting them healed, but the one who is healed today will die one day. You can be a blessing to other by getting provision from God, we came naked, we will go naked, no matter how long we live here; we will die one day, if the Lord tarries.
Someone was congratulating me the other day, he said Daddy congratulations, they say you are the most influential in Nigeria today; you are the number one among the living legend or something like that. And you are number forty nine in the whole world, congratulations!
I said thank you my friend, number one in Nigeria, number forty nine in the world, number what in heaven? That is the important one.
When Jesus returns, He is not going to ask what number you are in your country, He is not going to ask the number you are in the world. The important thing is what number are you in heaven? If God likes you and He gives you good health, you may live to be 120 years, over there it is forever.
If you make it to heaven you will enjoy forever, you make it to hell you will surfer forever. What number are you in heaven?
The greatest blessing you can be to anyone, bring them to the foot of the cross of salvation, teach them that unless you are born again, they will not make it to heaven.
Several years ago, one man came to the camp here; to the Holy Ghost service and he saw his friend and said you are here too? Since when have you been coming, he asked, the man replied “five years”,
You have been coming for five years and you called yourself my friend, five years! You have known the way to heaven for five years and you did not tell me, and you call yourself my friend!
Those of you who want to give your lives to Jesus Christ come now, if you die without salvation, they will tell you what number you are in hell, if you give your life to Jesus today, He will put your name in the book of life. You will have a number in heaven, don’t say I didn’t tell you, there is salvation in Jesus Christ; his blood cleanses you from all sin.
If you want to give your life to Jesus Christ make sure you are here before I count one to ten…
The choice is yours, if you like you don’t have to come, you have heard the truth. Jesus said it himself, unless you are born again, you will not see the kingdom of heaven, so I am calling you now come and surrender your life to Him.
God loves you that is why He brought you here, He knows I will tell you the truth; I will tell you the truth about healing, I will tell you the truth about deliverance, I will tell you the truth about provision, I will tell you the truth about promotion, I will also tell you the truth about heaven and hell.
As soon as I have told you the truth, the choice is now yours, hurry up, I know some of you are coming from a distance so hurry up, come and surrender your life to him. And those of you who say you were born again but you have gone back into the world, come.
The Bible says you cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound, God forbid. The Bible says without holiness no man shall see God, it is a short time we have in this world, over there it is time without end, come and give your life to Jesus Christ now.
Those of you who are already in front, begin to talk to the Almighty God, ask him to save your soul, ask Him to be merciful unto you, ask Him to forgive you all your sins, promise Him that you will serve him for the rest of your life.
And the rest of us please stretch your hands towards them and pray for this people, ask the one who save your soul to save their own souls also. Brethren let us intercede for this people , that God will save every sinner and restore every backslider, that everything will become new for these brethren.
Thank you Father, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed. Father I want to thank you for your word, thank you for all these your children, who have come forward to surrender their lives to you. Every one of them father, receive in Jesus name. Forgive them in Jesus name, your blood that cleanse from all sins; let it wipe away all their sins in Jesus name.
Save their souls, write their names in the book of life and Father anytime they call on you answer them in Jesus name. Lord Almighty I pray, that anytime you return, none of us will be left behind in Jesus name. Thank you Father in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
I am rejoicing with you today because from now on by the special grace of God I will be praying for you and very soon you will be receiving miracle you didn’t even ask for, then you know somebody somewhere is praying for you, so I am going to need your names, your address. So if you turn to your left, there is a man waving a piece of wood, follow him, some pastors are waiting for you, they will collect the information I need and they will bring you back.
Now let us stand on your feet please, if you believe that God is going to answer all your requests tonight, let me hear you shout hallelujah! Now I want you to pray all these prayers with all your heart, say Father, make me a blessing to the whole world, go ahead talk to God…
Pastor E. A. Adeboye
ALL SHALL BE WELL
7th of August, 2009
Let’s go ahead and worship the Almighty God, worship the King of kings, worship the LORD of lords, worship the Ancient of Days, give Him all glory, give Him all honour, He is worthy to be praised, He is worthy to be adored, give Him all glory, give Him all honor, give Him all adoration, He is the Ancient of Days, He is the unchangeable Lord, He has no beginning, He has no ending.
I want you to pray just one prayer at this moment, lift your voice to God at this moment and say Father, show me your glory tonight. Open your mouth and talk to Him. In an unmistakable manner, in a new way, show me your glory tonight… Thank you Father!” God will do something very extra-ordinary next month in Jesus name.
The LORD said there is someone here today; your enemy will come and bow down before you.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight; He said the cloud that has been covering your glory shall fade away.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight; He said the original vision that I gave you will still come to pass.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight, you came saying; God you know how great things I will love to do for you, if only you can solve my problem. The LORD asked me to tell you, I will surprise you.
Father we bless your name, King of glory, the LORD, the LORD Strong and Mighty, the LORD Mighty in battle. The LORD of Host, the I AM, that I AM, the Ancient of Days, the Rock of Ages, the Lion of The Tribe of Judah, The way, the Truth and the Life, Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of peace, Alpha, Omega, The Beginning, The Ending, The one who is the one who was, the one who is to come, The Almighty God, Glory be to your Holy name.
Tonight, please glorify your name. All we are asking for tonight is that you glorify your Holy name. Thank you my Father, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout Halleluiah!
I want you to shake hands with one or two people and prophesy to yourself and saygood evening but I am the one God will surprise tonight. Now if you believe that put your hand together to the Almighty God, then you may please be seated.
You are welcome in the Mighty name of Jesus.
The September Holy Ghost Service is going to be specially for those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, It will also be specially for those who are tired of fruitless efforts.
So the Theme for the September Holy Ghost service is “GREAT EXPECTATIONS
At that particular Holy Ghost service, all the major Apostles in the whole world; the great leaders of great churches throughout the whole world, they will be here worshipping with us.
They will come from Europe, they will come from America, they will come from India, they will come from everywhere, and they will be at the Holy Ghost service of September.
And during the Holy Ghost service of September, at a stage I am going to asked all of them to stretch their hands towards all of you who will come and bless you specially.
There is something called corporate anointing; when one man blesses you, it is not the same as two combine to bless you. Now when all these Apostles gather their anointing and they stretch their hands to bless you, then you yourselves will know that you are blessed. If I were you, nothing will keep me away from the September Holy Ghost service.
Definitely, our God is good. Usually at a time like this, during the convention, I have to give a brief report of what God has done in the past one year. In order that it will not sound as if we are boasting; I will give the report, mathematically.”, there will be divine encounter here on Monday morning. Divine encounter is at 8 o clock, it is for those who are trusting God for financial breakthrough. It is for one hour only.
When a mathematician says something is more than two then it could be three, hundred, or ten, it is still more than two. During the past one year, by the grace of God alone, in Nigeria, we have been able to plant more than ten new parishes every day.
In the past one year by the grace of God, the Redeemed Christian church of God has been able to enter twenty new nations of the world.
The number of children born to us in Nigeria; is more than thirty four thousand.
The number of marriages conducted in Redeemed Christian church of God in the past one year is more than four thousand two hundred.
As for physical development, I don’t want to talk about all those because if you drive through the camp, you know what it was last year; you know what it is now.
The LORD has been very, very good to us; we cannot deny it at all. Will somebody please help me shout one big Halleluiah to the Most High God.
But when we looked at what He has done and what remains to be done, we have to keep on praying for more help, because there is still more than hundred Redeemed Christian church of God nations of the world where there is no Redeemed Christian church of God , so we still have a long way to go.
On this camp in particular, we still have acute shortage of bathrooms and toilets. We have many of them, but there are grossly inadequate for the crowd.
There is still acute shortage of dormitories, we have many of them, but they are grossly inadequate.
And you will have noticed that for at least three years or four, I have not asked for any special offering for the work going on in the camp, this is because the main auditorium was being built during this period and God told me that He alone must take all the glory for this auditorium.
That is why I didn’t asked for any special offering, but the auditorium is practically ready, even though it is already inadequate. Thank God that it is not raining tonight, all those people who are outside the auditorium would have been in serious trouble.
Now as at this evening, the number of babies born during this convention has increased to 64 and the girls have taken over again, 31 boys, 33 girls, let the sisters shout glory, let the brothers shout halleluiah!
Let’s bow our head in prayer, Daddy we bless your holy name, God of joy, God of glory we bless your Holy name; accept our thanks in Jesus name.
Tonight LORD show us your glory and let our joy over flow, as your word will be going forth, let there be mighty power in your word, bringing, salvation, healing, deliverance, breakthroughs, total and absolute victory, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Tonight I will be very brief because there is a lot God wants to do.
I have been asked to speak on
“ALL WILL BE WELL”,
so turn to your neighbor and say all is going to be well with me. You better say it as if you really mean it.’s is why Paul said in Philippians 4 v 13 he said I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me , in other words Paul said since Christ came into my life failure became a stranger to me.’t mind them. He said I am your back bone and nobody can break me.– 10 the Bible calls Jesus the LORD, the LORD Strong and Mighty, the LORD Mighty in Battle
Thank you Father, the LORD says there is someone here tonight; He said for the rest of your life, there will be nothing called sunset in your life again.’t know it will be this serious, now we will call out some people that the LORD says He wants to set you free, but please if you don’t come now, don’t come and trouble me in the office; what He wants to do, He wants to it now.
And I am going to call everyone together so that nobody will know which is your own
First the LORD says there is someone here, he said you have had sex with various animals; and He said unknown to you, He says there is a very serious sickness that has come into your body, but He said because you are here tonight, if you come out and we pray He will take care of the situation.
The LORD says there is a woman here tonight; He said you are the one responsible for the death of your first husband. He didn’t quite say you actually killed him, He said you are responsible for his death, but he said unknown to you, you will soon be joining him but because you came tonight God wants to settle that.
And there is another one that is very, very similar to that, He said there is a man here, you are responsible for the death of your first wife, he said if you come he will also forgive.
Then He says there is someone here; you have been dreaming, regularly you see birds flying in and out of your mouth; and He says you don
’t want it, but you couldn’t tell anyone and He says if you come out tonight, He will set you free.
Finally He said there is someone here tonight, He said the first time you dreamt of a snake; it was small, but each time you dreamt about that snake, it is getting bigger and bigger. The LORD asked me to tell you, the enemy was leading you into serious trouble, but because you have come tonight, He wants to put an end to that.
If you are one of these people that I have mentioned, you come forward now. Now I am not going to wait I am going to keep on preaching and then after sometime if you are not already in the front that will be your own headache, I will pray for those who are already out.
The LORD says there is an additional case, He said there is someone here tonight, you drank wine with the skull of a man and from that time, you have been suffering this severe headache and the LORD asked me to tell you, if you are willing to leave the secrets society that you joined when you drank with that skull, you come forward tonight, He will put an end to the headache. He said otherwise, the headache will get stronger and stronger until you die.
So let me wait a little for those who are concerned.
What a mighty God we serve, halleluiah, 2ce
Heaven and earth adored, even angel bow before e him
What a mighty God we serve…
Halleluiah for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth,
Halleluiah, Halleluiah praise lord!
Jesus is alpha and omega 2ce
So I praise for he is alpha and alpha and omega,
Like him I want to live, to live forever
So I praise for he is alpha and alpha and omega 4ce, (Worship)
And the rest of us join me in praying for these people; that Almighty God who has gone into this crowd to bring all these people would please be merciful to them. That He will forgive and remove the repercussion of everything evil that they have done. Please pray for them…
Thank you Jesus… in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed,
Daddy, I want to thank you for your ability to deliver, I want to thank you that nothing is hidden from you , you have gone into this crowd to locate these cases, because you are such a merciful God, accept our thanks in Jesus name. All these people; whatever they have done wrong in the past; forgive them tonight in Jesus name.
Everything that led the enemies to gaining access into their lives wipe it away with your blood in Jesus name and everything that have been introduced into their system that is of the devil, uproot tonight in Jesus name.
My Father and my God that person who saw bird coming in and out, when that fellow says the next Amen, let that bird vanished in Jesus name.
The one who have been dreaming of snake, at the next Amen let all the snakes vanished in Jesus name.
The one who drank with human skull, my Lord and my savior, by deciding to come out of that secret society, that headache, let it go back to sender in Jesus name.
All those who have done one terrible thing or the other, forgive and forget in Jesus name, give all these your children a new beginning, let tonight be a turning point for the better for them and let them spend the rest of their lives doing your will and your will alone in Jesus name. Thank you Father, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Let me hear you shout Halleluiah!
God bless you, I rejoice with you, you can go back to your seat now.
It looks as if this program was organized for you. Thank you Lord; let’s give the Lord a big round of applause that is a major, major miracle from God
Now like I was saying, I say when Christ comes in or wherever Christ is, storms cannot stay. Why? Because He himself is called the Prince of peace, Isaiah 9 v6 says His name shall be called Prince of Peace and in John 14 v 27 he said peace I give unto you.
He didn’t say trouble, he said peace that is why I am sure that for every one of you who have really, really surrendered to Jesus Christ from now on in the mighty name of Jesus Christ it will be peace all the way.
Thank you Father, the LORD asked me to tell you to do something and I want you to please do it with all your heart. He said we should all stand and shout the loudest Halleluiah you have ever shouted in your life.
Now the LORD asked me to tell you, he said because of that shout; I will level every wall of Jericho in your path.
Go ahead and shout another Halleluiah! Thank you Jesus! You can please be seated and I think you should shake hands with one or two people by your side and say I thank God that I came.
The LORD says there is someone here tonight, He says I will not only open a big door for you, I will personally carry you through it.
When Christ come in shame must go out because two captains cannot be in the same boat and Captain Jesus is also called the King of glory and He made a promise in His word in Joel 2 v 25
27 He said it again and again; He said my people shall not be ashamed. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ you will never know shame again.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight; he said very soon people would say of course he has every reason to dance.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight; He said I will give you a visitation that will silence your mocker forever.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said the rest of this year, will be full of supernatural manifestations for you.
Let us just stand brethren, what is the use of preaching when God has done what He wanted to do.
First of all begin to wave your hands to Him and bless His Holy name, Bless His Holy name, give Him glory, give Him Honour, He is worthy to be praised. Thank you my Father and my God, I just want to bless your Holy name, what a Great God you are, what a Wonderful God you are, what a Mighty God you are. In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Now I want you to pray with all your might, I beg you pray like a warrior even the dead knows God is here tonight. Open your mouth and say Father, two captains can
’t be in the same boat, I don’t want sickness in my body any more chase it out, I don’t want failure in my life, chase it out, I don’t want darkness in my life anymore chase it out, I don’
t want any form of defeat anymore, chase it out, open your mouth and pray… in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Now I want you to mention the names of those who are precious to you, whether they are here or not. Say Father I commit so and so into your hand, let your glory chase out everything that is evil out of his/her life, begin to mention them and continue to talk to the almighty God for them… in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Now we are going to do two things simultaneously now, those people who are carried in today, let the Usher spread some mat for them.
You may please be seated but remain in an attitude of prayer. Even as you are seated you can begin to mention the names of those you haven’t mentioned and begin to hand them over to God that he will interfere into their affairs.
Thank you Jesus!
The Minister of God will begin to minister to them and under this awesome anointing, I am believing God for Mighty miracles tonight.
Those who are on the wheel chair should remain seated; the Minster of God will come and meet them there. Others who are carried in are the ones they should bring forward.
Bring them quickly we don’t want to waste the time of the Almighty God, so can I request the senior Pastor to go down and pray for these people now, two to one person, let’s give them double anointing.
While they are ministering to these people, we will have some worship song, so that the power of God will continue to flow. We have not finished our prayer; just remain in an attitude of worship.
Let’s give God the glory let’s give God the honour… lets go back to your seat and listen to what God wants us to do, they have prayed for you the anointing is already on you, the one who got the others up will get you up.
In 2 kings 13v18 something happened there that the Almighty God directed my attention to them for the next thing we want to do.
Elisha said to the king of Israel, he said take the arrows and he took them and he said unto the king of Israel, strike upon the ground and he strike thrice and stayed and the man of God was wroth with him and said thou shouldest have strike five or six times and though will have strike Syria till thou would have consume it, whereas now thou shall strike Syria but thrice.
A king came to a man of God and the man of God told him to take arrows and smite the ground. And the king smote the ground three times and stopped and the man of God said no you should have done it at least five times.
The LORD asked me to tell those of you who are here tonight, that he wants you to ask from Him five things that you want Him to do for you before next year’s convention.
Think of them now, don’t begin to ask yet, think about them. Please make sure that they are very serious things not minor things.
Now the LORD asked me to do one thing; He asked me to come here tonight with my prayer walking stick, he asked me to tell you; that when I raised it up, you pray your prayer number one, I may bring it down but you keep on praying until I say Amen.
When I raise it you the second time you pray your second prayer if my hand is heavy I may bring it down, you continue praying until I say Amen.
When I raise it up the third time, you pray your third prayer point; you do that until five times. Five important things that you want God to do for you, before next year convention.
Don’t ask for small things; don’t ask for flimsy things, an opportunity like this only comes once in a life time. Are you ready to pray now, have you thought about those five things?
If you are ready then you stand. First of all let me hear you shout a big Halleluiah!
Are you ready for prayer one? In the name of Jesus, you can begin to pray now… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Are you ready for prayer number two, in the Mighty name of Jesus you can begin to pray…. in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Now prayer number three, in the Mighty name of Jesus…. in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Prayer number four, in the mighty name of Jesus…. in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Now think very well before you pray the fifth one, as the last option, so think very well, so the fifth one in the Mighty name of Jesus…. in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Now the passage we read said you should have smitten the ground five or six times, so the LORD said to me, five prayers for yourself, the sixth one for your neighbor, just pray for that fellow, wish that person well when I raised the rod the sixth times.
This time you are praying for your neighbor, the law of harvest it will bring to you whatever you wish. In the Mighty name of Jesus … in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
So I said to the LORD, what I know about you father, seven is your favorite number, what is to happen when I raised the rod the seventh time? He said you are all to pray for me.
Are you ready? In the name of Jesus… in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
The LORD will grant your request; this night will be for a memorial in your life. This night will be your real turning point. You will never forget tonight for good, in Jesus Mighty name.
Put your hands together for the Almighty God and you may please be seated. Only one thing to do and then there will be a finally blessing.
There are some big testimonies here we will take it tomorrow before the Holy Communion service, Saturday in Jesus name.
One here : The daughter of one of my daughters was kidnapped right inside the church in Lagos and the kidnappers requested for twenty million naira but after one week the leader of the kidnapper said he has no rest and brought the child back.
There is the case of a sister her who was barren for ten years but now has five children.
There is a case here of someone whose mother died and he laid the dress that he wore to the Holy Ghost service and her mother rose again. Some serious testimony we will take time to take it tomorrow night.
How many of you want to say thank you to Jesus Christ tonight, has anybody been blessed tonight? I will want us to take our thanks giving offering and let’s make it bigger than anything we have every given before and we will take quality time thanking God and I will bless you and we will be on our way.
Now you remain seated until you have dropped your thanks giving offering, then you can stand and dance to the Almighty God.
If you have a handkerchief or a piece of clothe with you, wave it as we sing the last song and I will wave my hand and the handkerchief will be anointed…
Now lay the handkerchief on your own head as I pray for you.
In the mighty name of Jesus even as this handkerchiefs are covering your head, the glory of God will cover you like a cloud. And everywhere you use this handkerchief the glory of God will come down. And everything that is not of God will be chased out. It will be well with you all the days of your life and you will never know shame again.
Father bless the offering of your children, sanctify it, use it for your glory and don’t let your children know poverty again, as your children disperse, please go with them, when we meet again let everybody be full of testimonies in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Wherever you are now just go on your feet, I want you to cry unto God for a minute, ask him for mercy, asked him for forgiveness, tell him you are sorry for what you did wrong, promise him you will never, never do such again.
Halleluiah! The LORD says there is someone here tonight… I know that normally God deals with some serious cases during the convention…
All of you who are watching us all over the world, the Lord God will answer you in the Mighty name of Jesus, those of you who are watching by internet, watching by television, I have not forgotten you at all, my prayer is with you in Jesus name.
In Isaiah 3 v 10, the Bible says: say ye to the righteous, it shall be well with him, why? because Colossians 1 v 27says, Christ in you the hope of glory. When you combine the two, then any true child of God can say with confidence, my tomorrow will be alright. If you can say it let me hear it loud and clear!
You see one of the titles of our Lord Jesus Christ, because Jesus Christ has many names, many titles. One of the major titles is Captain; Hebrew 2v10, the Bible calls him the Captain of our captain.
You will remember that on a particular occasion in Luke 10 2-7 a centurion came to the LORD Jesus Christ and as they were talking; he said I know you are a captain, I am a captain too. And this particular captain our LORD Jesus Christ, is someone that not only human beings that obey him, even the wind and the sea obey him. When He says peace be still, every storm will be quiet. And so to even start, I want to say in the name of Jesus every storm in your life will be still tonight.
The wind, the sea obey him, demons obey him, because according to Matthew 8 v 16 He cast out demons with His words, this captain, captain Jesus is a captain that we must obey. According to Philippians 2 v 10 the Bible says at the name of Jesus all knee must bow.
Now there cannot be two captains in the same ship. So wherever Christ is, problems cannot stay, that is why I am sure that those of you who are here today, in that name that is above every other name your problems will end tonight, or maybe I should say it better; because in a crowd like this there will be some who had come to see Jesus, there will be some who have come for something else. So let me say that there is someone here today, in that name that is above every other name your problems will end tonight.
Why? Wherever Captain Jesus is, sickness cannot stay there. How do I know, because this same captain is also called the Great Physician. In Exodus 15 v 26 He says I am the LORD that heals thee. I am Jehovah Rapa, the great physician.
And according to Psalm 107 v 20, all He has do to heal is to send his word. And the word is coming to you now. In the name Mighty name of Jesus Christ, there is someone here tonight, before I finish preaching, your sickness will be gone.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight, He said it is not only you that I will heal, I will pour my healing balm on your family.
Thank you Father, the LORD said there is someone here tonight, He said I have already started moving on your behalf and before the sun rises, you will see result.
In Mark 2 v 1-12, the Bible says Jesus was in a place and a great crowd came to hear him; some came just to hear, some came just to see and there was a group of people who were desperate. They carried their friend in and in the name that is above every other name, those of you who are carried in here tonight, God will touch you in Jesus name.
They carried their friend in, through the roof, If only we can get him to the presence of Jesus. And they were not disappointed.
All of you who had come to the presence of Jesus tonight, in the Mighty name of Jesus you will not be disappointed.
They carried in their friend, he walked away!
Because two captains cannot be in the same boat, where Captain Jesus is, sickness must go.
Very soon it will be time to pray and with your own mouth you are going to command sickness to get out of your system and it will obey you tonight in Jesus name.
Where Jesus is, failure cannot be there, because another name of this captain Jesus according to Psalm 46 v 1 is called the ever present help in time of trouble. In another words he is the help of the helpless.
That I decree in the name of Jesus Christ to someone here tonight, by the power in the word of God, you will not know failure again.
The LORD said there is someone here tonight, he said some people gather together, they say they will break your back, the Lord asked me to tell you, don’t worry He is in Control.
Occasionally when Daddy says something that is sweet, very sweet I always say Amen first before I tell anybody, because they say self first is no selfishness. He said love your neighbor as yourself; that means you love yourself first and then you love your neighbor as you love yourself.
Now Daddy has just said something and I want to say Amen before I tell you, He said there is someone here tonight, He said before the end of this year, I will give you a taste of my generosity.
Luke 5 v 1- 7 Peter was a failure, has fished all night and caught nothing until Jesus came into his boat. As soon as Captain Jesus came in, failure jumped out.
By the authority vested in me by the Almighty God himself I decree to every one of you here tonight, you will never know failure again.
Wherever Jesus is, there can be no permanent defeat. In 1 John 4 v 4 the Bible says greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. In Psalm 24 v 7
Many of us think that Jesus is a civilian, no He is a warrior, He is not an ordinary warrior, He is The commander in Chief of all the Host, that is why there is no enemy that can knock you down permanently. If they knock you down right now, in that name that is above every other name, you will rise again in Jesus name.
Where Jesus is, there can be no permanent defeat. That is why He says in his word; sorrow may endure for a night, joy cometh in the morning.
I decree in the name of Jesus Christ, anyone of you who may be going through any form of sorrow right now, by the time the sun rises tomorrow, you will shout for Joy.
Where Jesus is, barrenness cannot be permanent, because according to John 15 v 1 -5 He says I am the fruitful vine, as long as you are in me, and my word is in you, you will bring forth much fruit.
Am believing God for all those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, when people are bringing their children forward next year, you will be carrying one on the right and one on the left.
… In Jesus Mighty name we worship.
Bless His Holy name, please worship the King of kings, worship the LORD, worship the Ancient of days, worship the Most High God. Worship the one; who can make and unmake, He is worthy to be glorified, bless His Holy name. Thank you Father!

Visit us again tonight, save souls tonight, heal tonight, deliver tonight, put an end to barrenness tonight, and put an end to sorrow tonight. Put an end to frustration tonight. Do something new in all our lives tonight. At the end of everything take all the glory and give us the blessings. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout halleluiah! Shake hand with one or two people and say God will surprise you tonight.
Those of you who are born in the month of September, you can stand up now; if you are born in the month of September let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Father Almighty I want to thank you for all your children who are born in the ninth month of the year.
Now nine is three times three, in every area of their lives; give them triple promotions, triple joy, triple blessings, triple breakthroughs. Let their miracle come in threes. Anytime they call on You answer them speedily in Jesus name.
If they ask for one thing, give them three in Jesus name and let them serve You in triples in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen. Congratulation you may please be seated.
As you have seen at least on your screens, what I promised you last month is a reality now; the apostles are here from all over the world; From the Far East to the far west, from the north to the south of the world.
They are all here tonight. Isn’t it interesting that these people, who are coming to Africa for the first time, are coming to the first Holy Ghost service after our convention! I think God is saying something.
Isn’t it interesting that they are coming for the special Holy Ghost night for those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb.
Isn’t it interesting that there are coming to the special Holy Ghost service that is set up to put an end to fruitless effort.
I have a feeling deep within me, that there is somebody here tonight who is special to God, who have been crying to God for a breakthrough and the day he has been waiting for has come. If you are the one let me hear you shout halleluiah!
The theme for our special Holy Ghost service this month is GREAT EXPECTATIONS.
I want to share with you briefly from Psalm 62 v 5.
And I want to assure those of you who are watching from all over the world and on the internet; the miracle of tonight will meet you wherever you are in Jesus name.
Psalm 62 v 5 my soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
What is the basis for great expectation? Why should anybody have great expectations?
Great promises: There are some promises in the bible that when you read them, or you hear about them they will shake you. For example, in Isaiah 43 v 2 he said even when you are passing through fire, the fire won’t burn you. That is a great promise and I believe that is even already a word for somebody here tonight. No matter how hot the fire you are passing through right now, it is not going to burn you.
Or Isaiah 54 v 17 that one was written for me personally, where God promised and say there is no weapon formed against me that will prosper. That is a great promise!
Or take Isaiah 65 v 20 where God promised; that there will be no more infants of days, that when somebody dies at the age of one hundred, people will say he died as a child. Meaning what? There is a promise of God that says I will not die young.
Or take Deuteronomy 7 v 14 the promise of God that says; none shall be barren among my people; either male or female. He even said your animals will not be barren. It is a promise from God.
I can go on and on, you can take Deuteronomy 28 v 11- 12 where God promise that he will open his own treasury over there in heaven and command blessing just to flow from there to me, and said I will lend to nations and not to individuals and that I will never borrow.
That tells me; that there is someone here today who is groaning under a heavy burden of debt. Very soon you will shout that my burdens are gone.
Great promises from a Great God!
The value of a promise is determined by the one making the promise; if a little child comes to you and he says tomorrow, I will buy you a car, you will know he is prophesying.
But as poor as I am, if I come down from this altar and I stand before any of you and I say by the grace of God, by the end of next week, you can come and collect a car from me you will go home rejoicing.
So who makes a promise, determines the value of a promise.
And who is the God making all these promises?
Genesis 17 v 1, calls Him Jehovah El-Shaddai, the God who is more than enough,
Psalm 91 v 1 calls him the Most High, and calls him the Almighty.
Matthew 3 v 9 says He is so powerful he can bring children out of stones.
Jeremiah 32 v 27 says He is the God of all flesh, and that with him nothing shall be impossible.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said I promise you, I will never forget you again.
In Ezekiel 37 v 1- 10 He is not only the God of all flesh, He is even the God of dry bones. He can tell dry bones to live and they will obey.
Therefore I decree by the authority of that same God, that every womb that is dried up will come alive now in Jesus name.
An important man can make you a promise, but you will need to check his record, if he has a record of lying. So even if he made a promise you can’t be sure.
I know one fellow in particular; if he tells you he is coming, what he is telling you is ‘I am going’. On more than one occasion people have come to me excited; so and so says he is coming and I will smile.
‘You better get somebody ready to do your work, don’t wait for that fellow’.
“Oh he assures us he is coming, I will say when I see him I will believe,
“Oh daddy ain’t you a believer?”
‘I am a believer but I know the record of this person’.
I want to tell you tonight, I know the record of my father in heaven; he never lies.
Numbers 23 v 19 He said God is not a man that he should lie, neither a son of man that he should repent.
He said, whatever he say He will do, He will do it.
Tell your neighbor, “God will do my own tonight”.
Psalm 119 v 89 says forever oh Lord! Your word is settled. Settled where? In heaven!
Here in Nigeria as young as I am I have seen the name of a street changed more than three times; one politician will come and change the name, another politician will come and change the name.
The word of my father is settled in heaven where nobody can change it.
I thought somebody will shout halleluiah at that one.
He said in Malachi 3 v 6 I am the Lord, I change not. Once he has spoken it is already done.
Psalm 33 v 8 – 9 says let the whole earth fear before him for he spake, and it is done. He has spoken tonight concerning somebody; he said I will never forget you again.
I still remember the testimony of one of my children who have been believing God for the fruit of the womb for a very long time, she came to a special holy ghost service like this and the almighty God said that there was someone in the crowd who is believing God for the fruit of the womb and God said I have decide to give you a set of twins.
She grabbed it and rejoiced, that very month she became pregnant. After about three months, she went to the hospital, and they said oh yes! You are pregnant there is a baby in your womb.
She said no! not one, two is what God promised me, the doctor says well! the scan shows one.
She came back home and said Doctor is saying his own, God has spoken. Two months later he went back and the doctor says there are two babies. She said what I told you! My God has spoken.
On behalf the almighty God, I speak to somebody here tonight; by next year convention you will bring your children forward.
Great expectations is based on a great promises from a great God who can never lie, who when he speaks, it is settle.
Therefore if there are delays just wait for it. If he promises, it will come to pass
Habakkuk 3 v 10 it says the vision is for an appointed time, thou it tarries, wait for it because at the end it will speak, it will surely come.
There is an appointed for everything; God has a timetable for everybody.
I have good news for someone here tonight; your appointed time has come. So even though there has been some delay because God is on the throne, you will laugh last.
How do I know? Because he promised in Psalm 30 v 5 He says, weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. By tomorrow morning there will be somebody here who will say I didn’t know it will be this quick.
I want you to turn to your neighbor and prophesy to yourself and say ‘my joy is on the way’, say it as if you really mean it. Go ahead and give God a round of applause if you really believe it.
Psalm 126 v 1-3 the Bible says when God turns the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream; then was our mouth filled with laughter, our tongue with singing and they said among the heathen, oh the Lord has done great things for them.
For whom is that passage written? If you are the one let me hear you shout halleluiah!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said I will give you new wings, so you can fly again.
Daddy says there is someone tonight; he said the memory of your shame shall fade away quickly.
Now let me give you some examples in the bible;
Example one: let’s start with Abraham, God made him some promises in Genesis 12 v 1- 3 God promised and say through thy seed shall all the nation of the world be bless.
Genesis 15 v 1 – 5 God called him out one night, God said look through the sky can you count the number of stars in the sky?
He said no, God said so shall the numbers of children be. God made him great promises.
Then Abraham waited and waited nothing seems to be happening, when we got to Genesis 17 v 15- 18 “Abraham”,
“Yes Lord”, your children will be like the sand by the sea shore.
Abraham began to laugh, laughed until he fell on his face, what kind of Joke is this? When you promised me initially I believed you, all these years I have been waiting nothing happened. Abraham laughed, that didn’t change God.
In Genesis 18 v 9 – 14 when the appointed time came, like the time has come for somebody here it tonight. Some visitors came, just like some visitors have come tonight from the east and the west, from the north and from the south.
Some visitors came and said to Abraham, the waiting is over, nine month from now, your wife will bring forth a baby boy, and Sarah laughed.
The devil may be asking you to laugh, that is what he always says. Tell the devil, this time around, I am going to have the last laugh.
Amen, there is something God is saying for me tonight, you can share later, because God is saying that there is someone here tonight, as long as the sun shall continue to rise I will continue to bless you.
… by the time we got to Genesis 1 v 1-6 it was the time for Sarah to laugh last.
Somebody is going to laugh last very soon.
All those who say you will never have a child; by the time they see you next year carrying one on the left and another on the right and somebody else helping you to carry number three, you can look at them and just laugh.
Somebody here will laugh last in Jesus name.
Example Two: Joseph God gave him mighty promises in the two dreams. Genesis 37 v 3 – 11, he had a dream that all his brothers were bowing down before him and just as if that one is not enough, God gave him another dream. It is not only your brothers; even your dad will join them to come.
Then delays came, the man who was hoping to sit on the throne and everybody will come and bow down, by Genesis 35 v 1 -5, he was a slave going to Egypt, by Genesis 39 v 19 -23 he was already a in prison.
Where are the brothers to bow down, oh God! where are your great promises?
But then a day came, thank God the day has come for somebody tonight, a day came, in Genesis 41 v 32- 44 when Pharaoh said to Joseph, he said I am pharaoh, in this land, nobody would lift up their hands or feet except at your command.
So Joseph found himself on the throne, it wasn’t long before his brothers came, it wasn’t long after that that his father came with them. But the last laugh came in Genesis 50 v 15 – 21.
Thank you Jesus, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, it looks as if you have lost the battle, but Daddy asked me to tell you very soon, you will sing victory at last
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said the mountain looks frightenly big, He asked me to tell you, before this month is over, the mountain shall be moved.
Genesis 50 v 15 – 21, Joseph was seating quietly in his house when all the brothers came and fell before him and say we will be your servants. It was the turn for Joseph now to laugh last.
The same brothers who have said let us kill him and see what will become of his dreams. They fell before him and say we will be your servant.
In the name that is above every other names, those who say you will not reach your goal; they will come and bow before you.
If God made a promise, no matter the delay, it will come to pass.
I have told you the story before. My father and I went to Tulsa in 1979 to attend Kenneth Higgins camp program. We finished the program on Saturday and went into a church to worship on Sunday. We have never been there before. So nobody knew us there.
As you know my father in the Lord couldn’t speak English, I was the one interpreting for him. And as the preacher was preaching, suddenly he came down and stood before my father in the Lord and said thus says the Lord; that which I promise you will soon come to pass. And then he went to the altar and he began to preach.
My father in the Lord says, what did he say? I said when we get home I will tell you. When we got home, what did he say; I said what was it that God promised you?
The old man said at the beginning of the church, God told him that the church will go throughout the whole world. That was in 1952 now this is 1979 and we have not gone beyond a small section in Nigeria.
I said that which God said through that man who knew you from nowhere, is that what God promise you is about to come to pass.
And the old man began to cry, less than year later, the old man passed away to Glory.
Today, as I am speaking to the Redeemed Christian church of God is in 121 nations of the world, if he said it, then it will come to pass.
And I can assure someone here today, before you die the World will hear about you. If you are the one let me hear your amen loud and clear. (Amen)
Example three: Moses in Exodus 3 v 1-12 God spoke to Moses, Moses you will go and bring the children of Israel out of bondage and you will come and worship me on this mountain.
Moses said what kind of joke is that. Don’t you know I am a fugitive; I am running away from Pharaoh, if he sees me, he will kill me. Now you are saying I will go to pharaoh, I will tell him, all your slaves I want to take them away. And they will come and worship you on this mountain. God said that is what I said.
After a lot of argument Moses came to Egypt and in Exodus 5 v 1-2, he went to pharaoh, thus said the Lord, let my people go that they may worship me. Pharaoh said who the Lord, that I should obey him is. I don’t know the Lord neither will I let the Israelite go.
Moses said Lord, I told you, I told you before I left the bush, but in Exodus 12 v 30 – 32 when the almighty moved on a particular night, as he is going to move tonight. Pharaoh woke up in the night and send for Moses, ‘don’t wait till tomorrow, go now, take all your people, take all your flocks, and please bless me also’.
I decree in that name at which every name must bow that all the forces that have been holding you in bondage, tonight; they will beg you to go.
And by the time you get to Exodus 19 v 17-19 here was Moses with the children of Israel, worshipping God at the mountain that God said they will come to worship him.
I have an assurance for you, in a way you cannot understand, in a way that will beat you completely, what God have said concerning you shall come to pass.
Several years ago, I was in America, I think I was going to Tulsa and I entered through Dallas and one of my sons there was driving me to the airport.
And I heard God saying, clearly to my hearing, son the head quarter of my church in America will be in Dallas. I said amen.
At that time we had no church in America, not even a house fellowship, but he has spoken, and if he says it, it will come to pass.
So I told my son who was driving me, ‘son, I have just heard from God that the headquarter of his church in America will be in Dallas’ and he too said amen, (you know the kind of amen, the dreamer has come again).
Then one day after we have now started two or three new parishes, that same son of mine, who was in the car with me on the first day, was eating at a restaurant. Then one white man came to him and said do you happen to be a pastor? He said y. your church, does it happens to be from Africa, he said yes.
The white man said because several years ago, God told me to buy a big parcel of Land and I said to God what for? God said it is not for you, it is for somebody who will come. He said I bought the land several years ago and now as I came in today, and I saw you, God said to me the representative of the people that I said will come is that man.
Do you need land for your church? My son said my father in the Lord told me several years ago that the head quarter of our church in America is going to be in this town. Take me to the land. When he took him to the land, he said God told him the exact amount he paid in the beginning, without adding a dollar is what he must collect from us and then hand over the land.
Today by the special grace of God, the biggest Christian camp in America belongs to the Redeem Christian Church of God.
Now why am I telling you that story? Because unknown to you, the plan to fulfill the promises of God in your life had already been concluded.
How many of you really believe that this is the day you have been waiting for, how many of you feel this is the day you have been waiting for?
If you believe that let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said truly the obstacles are many he said but you will reach your goal.
I want to say amen to this one, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said the seed of your long awaited testimony shall be planted tonight.
Example four: David , God made him a mighty promise 1 Samuel 16 v 11- 13, he was enjoying himself in the field as a shepherd boy looking after the sheep, when suddenly a messenger came from home.
You are wanted from home, what have I done?
You have done nothing; there is an old man who looks like a prophet there. He said they should go and bring you quickly.
They brought him and they said kneel down and they began to pour oil on his head, you are the new king, king! (Am sure he must have been saying what is going on here?)
But instead of the throne, the next thing he discovered was that the king himself was throwing javelin at him; One time, second time. In fact the next thing we saw in 1 Samuel 22 v 1- 2 we found this man in a cave and a group of vagabonds gather themselves together with him and he became their captain.
Am sure the devil must be laughing at him, King David, captain of hooligans.
But one day came, in 2 Samuel 2v 1-4 …
Halleluiah! The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said the enemies have said you will never stop weeping. The Lord asked me to tell you, I will disappoint them all.
Thank you Jesus, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said the aggressor doesn’t know it yet, but God said I have already set their houses on fire.
A day came in 2 king 2 v 1- 4 when they anointed David as king of Judah, he must have said least this is better than being the king of hooligan, God said I have not finished yet.
In 2 Samuel 5 v 1- 5 and they anointed him King over the whole of Israel. God said I have not finished yet, Mark 10 v 46 – 52 Bartimeus saw Jesus passing by and said thou son of David. He saw the king of kings passing by and called him the son of David.
The almighty God took a shepherd boy and turned him to be the father of King of kings.
I prophesy to someone here tonight, where God is taking you, even you cannot imagine it at all, but you will get there.
Several years ago when I was struggling for money to find money to pay my school fees, one elderly man saw me and said one day, you will be going abroad like going to the market, I looked at him and said yes sir, thank you sir.
Going abroad like going to the market!
But today, I spent more time abroad than in Nigeria.
I prophecy to somebody here right now, by the time God finishes with you, everybody will say your God is the almighty.
Let me take just one more example, because there is a lot God wants to do here tonight.
Example four: Let’s take Peter, in Luke 5 v 1 – 11 Peter fished all night and caught nothing. Jesus came, stepped into his boat, preached from the boat and decided to say thank you, told him to launch into the deep, cast your net to the right and suddenly two boats where filled with fished.
Then God said to Peter, after today you will become fisher of men. Peter abandoned everything and began to follow Jesus. He didn’t win a single soul, one year, two years, and three years. Peter, fisher of men, fisher of men, where are the men that I am fishing now!
So by the time we got to Matthew 26 v 69 – 75 when they say you are one of the disciples, he said I don’t know him.
There was a promise, there was a delay but there was a last laugh.
Because when the day of Pentecost fully came in Act 2 suddenly unexpectedly, the Holy Spirit came and the Life of Peter changed forever.
He preached a single sermon and three thousands souls were saved. All the soul he should have won in three years, he got them one day. I believe I am speaking to someone here today, who have been trying and failing, trying and failing. All the grounds that you have lost, before the end of this year, you will recover all.
When God called me into the ministry, and I became General overseer; prophesy began to come, in fact there was a prophecy way back in 1979 December 24 at Ijebu Igbo, Orimolusi College. God said I will build you a great army; you will lead them to battle in my name. Great armies! So when I became General Overseer, when you put all of us together then we were less than one thousand. Great army!
I prayed, I fasted, every month I held special programs, seminars, outreaches, they will come as soon as I finish, they will go.
I travelled to Korea, I traveled everywhere, because God said great army, where is the great army?
But then all of a sudden, the turning point came. Let me hear somebody shout a really big halleluiah!
I don’t know for whom God organize tonight, but there is someone listening to me here tonight, there is somebody listening to me even on the internet tonight, there is somebody listening to me by Dove media tonight, this is your turning point.
Let me conclude and get out of the way, in 2 Corinthians 1 v 20 the bible says the promises of God are ye and amen.
Ecclesiasts 9 v 4 makes it clear, that if you are kept alive by God, there is still hope for you. If you are still alive, if you can still hear me, your tomorrow will still be alright.
Proverbs 23 v 17 – 18 says don’t envy sinners, but fear God. And your expectations will not be cut off. It doesn’t matter what is happening, make sure you don’t offend the one who made the great promises.
Joseph was a slave, temptation came, he said one thing; how can I do this evil thing and sin against God. The only one you must not offend, Is the one who made the promise and can make the promises to pass.
Believe me honestly as long as God is on your side; no matter the oppositions, you will reach your goal. But then Romans 6 v 1-2 says can we continue in sin that grace may abound, he said God forbid.
The only thing that can make sure that the promise of God in your life will not come to pass in your life is sin. 1Samuel 2 v 30 God said to Eli ‘I said indeed; that you and your father’s house will stand before me forever, but now I say be it far from it. Because those who honor me, I will honour, but those who will despise me, I will lightly esteem’.
The only thing that can change the ‘yes’ of God to ‘no’ is sin.
That is why I am encouraging all of you, who are here, if you are already of God, run away from sin, it is the only thing that can stand between you and the fulfillment of the promise of God.
If you have not yet given your life to Jesus and you are still living a life of sin, you have to forsake that life of sin tonight and come to the one who can save your soul. The one whose blood can wipe away all your sins and then all your miracles will begin to come.
Or maybe you were once a child of God but because of the delay you have backslid, come back to God he will restore you. There may be a delay but you will laugh last!
So if you are here tonight and you have not yet giving your life to Jesus, come forward now, come and give your life to Jesus, if you are a backslider and you want to be restored, come forward also , tonight can be your night of restoration. Come forward tonight, make this your night of salvation, make this your night of reconciliation, you cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound, come now.
Thank you Jesus, as you come, begins to ask for salvation. Begin to call on the Lord, ask him to save your soul, ask him to wash you in his blood, ask him to be merciful unto you, ask him to use his blood to remove those things standing between you and his favor.
And the rest of us, let us intercede for these people, let’s ask that the Lord will be merciful unto us and the who save us , the one who has kept us in his love will be merciful on these people and save these people also and keep them in his love.
Thank you Jesus, in Jesus’ mighty name we have prayed.
Savior I want to bless your name, I thank you for your word and I thank you for these your wonderful children who has come to surrender their lives to you, everyone of them; save their souls tonight in Jesus’ name, forgive them all their sins tonight in Jesus tonight, let your blood wipe away all their sins tonight in Jesus name.
Write their names in the book of life in Jesus name. Don’t let them ever go back to the world again in Jesus name and from now on, anytime they call on you, please answer them speedily in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Thank you my father, in Jesus’ mighty name we have prayed. Amen.
I want to invite the apostles to please come, the rest of us, I want you to rise on your feet; and I want each of us to ask God for something special tonight as the apostle begins to wave their hands and pray for you with their combine anointing, believe God that whatever you asked God for tonight, you will get it…
It is done in Jesus mighty name, if you receive that let him hear you shout halleluiah, God bless you.
Next month by the grace of God, is the youth convention. It going to start on September 30 and it will continue to October 3rd, the theme is PRODUCERS OF GLORY. All our youth will become miracle worker, producer of Glory for the almighty God.
Secondly as many of you know, October 1 is a very important day in Nigeria; Independence Day, republic day. I want to call on all of you to fast and pray for Nigeria. The prayer and fasting will be in two categories; seven days single, that is, you will break by 6pm, beginning from September 28th – 4th October. Please take note of that, fast and pray for Nigeria, breaking by 6pm. seven is a number of perfection.
In-between those seven days, I want to call on those of us who are spiritually matured (pastors, ministers and others spiritually matured) beginning form September 29 – 3rd of October I want those who are spiritually matured to fast continually, five days and five nights. If you are going to do the five days, then don’t bother about the seven days.
Take note of how you are going to pray;
Before October 1 you will just be thanking God, for all the troubles the Lord has taking us through, keep on thanking God.
On October the 1st we will all beg God for forgiveness, either as a result of religious crises, Niger delta, whatever, we will ask God for mercy, forgiveness, for every evil that have been done in Nigeria.
After October 1st we will then call on God to arise and scatter the enemies of Nigeria, enemies within, enemies without, enemies known and unknown, that the almighty God should arise and fight for this nation.
One more thing that is important that I should tell you, if you go abroad, in the big stores, from the 16th September, you will see a sign post saying; hundred days to Christmas, to make people happy that Christmas is around the corner. Well today, I am happy to tell you that today is 100 days to the congress.
It begins from December 14 -19. The theme is OUR GOD REIGNS and because our God reigns everything is under control.
How many of you believe that it is going to be well with you? Let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Now lift your hand to the Almighty God and just bless him for all he has done, say thank you Jesus that I could come tonight, thank you for bringing your apostles, thank you for making them a blessing to us. Thank you that all my yokes are destroyed tonight, because of the corporate anointing of today, thank you Jesus, thank you for today, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
The Lord will bless you, he will keep you, he will fight for you, he will stand by you, he will let your joy to be over flow, you will never forget tonight for Good, even as the sun rises tomorrow, your miracle will begin, you will never lack again, you will never be barren again, you will never have any cause to weep again, you will never have fruitless effort again. God will take you higher day by day, God will accept your offering, and you will never lack again, you will never borrow again, so shall it be and in the kingdom of God, you will not be found wanting, in Jesus name.
Let me hear somebody shout halleluiah!
Go in peace, the almighty God will go with you, the almighty God will go with you, on your way you will meet with peace, at home miracle will be waiting for you.
Who got the biggest blessing tonight, let me hear you shout the biggest halleluiah!

We want to thank the almighty God for the youth; it is their convention that is why we have said that they should handle most of the program for tonight. I am particularly delighted that the two preachers, who came before me, did excellently well. I made sure I stayed in the prayer room so that they will not feel nervous, so they can be free when they preached, but they did excellently well.
Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause for these and the various choirs tonight has done excellently well also.
The theme for the November Holy Ghost service, which is the last Holy Ghost service of the year, is the SOUND FOR ABUNDANCE OF RAIN.
I can hear the sound of abundance of rain. It doesn’t matter what is happening now, I can hear the sound of abundance of rain, so if I were you I will not miss the November Holy Ghost service for anything.
And after the Holy Ghost service in November we will have a very brief meeting with all the workers, so make sure that all workers are present.
We have seventy two days to the congress; the theme is OUR GOD REIGNS.
Our theme song is a song we already know;
Rejoice, rejoice, the Lord Jesus reigneth
Rejoice, rejoice, the Lord Jesus reigneth
He reigneth in my life; he reigneth in my soul,
Rejoice, rejoice, the Lord Jesus reignth.
He reigneth, He reigneth, He reigneth,
Rejoice, rejoice, the Lord Jesus reigneth.
1 Samuel 17 v 49 – 52 And David put his hand into his bag and took a stone and slang it and smote the philistine in his forehead that the stone sunk in his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth. So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David. Therefore David ran, and stood upon the philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head there with. And when the Philistine saw their champion was dead, they fled. And the men of Israel and of Judah arose, and shouted, and pursed the Philistines, until thou come to the valley, and to the gates of Ekron. And the wounded of the Philistines fell down by the way to Shaarim, even unto Gath, and unto Ekron.
Every Goliath that is threatening your future shall fall today, every Goliath that is holding Nigeria captive shall fall today.
Glory producers, we have already learnt what glory is, we have said that Glory is the opposite of shame according to Proverb 3 v 35, the wise shall inherit glory, but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
Fools are the opposite of the wise, so shame is the opposite of glory. We have also learnt that Glory is the opposite of reproach. 2 King 5 v 1 tells us that as successful as Naaman was, there was a ‘but’ in his life because he was a leper, glory is the opposite of failure, glory is the opposite of defeat, glory is the opposite of bondage and glory definitely is the opposite of sorrow. The bible says in Proverbs 12 v 25, that the heaviness of hearth makes is stoop, and when the head is down, that means something that is not glorious has happened. Whatever is causing you to bow your head in shame shall be removed tonight in Jesus name.
So glory is the opposite of shame, glory is the opposite of reproach, it is the opposite of failure, it is the opposite of defeat, it is the opposite of bondage, and it is the opposite of sorrow.
So who then is a glory producer?
A glory producer therefore is someone who removes shame, removes reproach, who removes failure, who removes defeat, who removes bondage, who removes sorrow, so when we go to the scriptures, we will find glory producers.
The first one we will talk about will be Samuel who is a shame remover; before Samuel was born in 1Samuel 1 v 1-7 his mother was constantly kept in shame and sorrow, the second wife in the family makes sure that the mother was constantly reminded, that she was barren but when Samuel came, everything changed, the woman who had been bowing her head in shame was able to lift up her head proudly.
As soon as Samuel arrived in 1 Samuel 2 v 1 you can hear what Hannah said;
‘And Hannah prayed and said my hearth rejoice in the Lord, my horn is exalted in the Lord, my mouth is enlarged over my enemies, because I rejoice in his salvation’.
And I am decreeing tonight that those of you who are in shame of one time or the other, before this month ends, you will open your mouth and say, “my mouth rejoice in the Lord”.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said through you, I will show the world that who are dominated by God, will dominate the world.
Who is a glory producer?
A glory producer is a reproach remover and the example here is David; before David showed up, in 1Sam. 17 v 22 – 26 Goliath as been reproaching not only Israel but the God of Israel. he said ‘I defiled all the army of Israel today’, when David showed up, he said, ‘what shall be done for the man, who killed this giant and take away this reproach from Israel and the text that we read told us that on the same day, David knocked down Goliath, cut off his head and raised it up for everybody to see, so that those who were once reproached shout for joy.
By the authority vested in me by the almighty God, a day is coming very soon; the whole of Nigeria will stand up and shout for joy.
All those who by one method or the other are reducing Nigerian to somebody who cannot lift his head high, they will all lose their heads without exception.
Who is a glory producer?
A glory producer is someone who removes failure.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said your problem is that you are too forgetful, the Lord asked me to tell you I will reprogram your brain.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, this is the exactly the way he said it, he said no! It is not your time to die. The “NO” is very emphatic, so if you are afraid of death, you will testify next month in Jesus name.
Joshua was a failure removal; in Joshua 1 v 1-6 the bible says where Moses failed, Joshua you will succeed.
And I am prophesying to all the youth here, what your parents were not able to achieve, you will achieve them in Jesus name.
Moses brought the children of Israel out of Egypt, but he couldn’t take them into the promise land and so God said to Joshua, you will take these people to the land and distribute the land to them.
I said one more time; to every youth here present, where your parent fails you will succeed.
Who is a glory producer, a glory producer is a defeat removal, and we take the example of Gideon, in Judges, 6 v 1-6 Israel was defeated totally by the Midianites, they defeated them so badly, that whenever Israel was planting; the Midianites will not pay attention, when what they have planted is growing they won’t pay attention, as soon as what they have planted has been harvested, the Midianites will move in and take everything away from them.
They were like one thief, that was very notorious in Lagos in the 1950’s, that they called Anikura, they say Anikura will not ask the child not to trade, he will you not to gain, but Anikura will not allow the child to take the gain home.
I decree tonight, every form of Anikura in your life shall die.
In Judges 7 v 19- 25 Gideon wiped out the Midianites and he turned the defeat of Israel to a great victory, every defeat in your family shall be changed to victory tonight in Jesus name.
Who is a glory producer?
A glory producer is someone who is a bondage remover and according to Exodus 3 v 7-10 Israel was in serious bondage in the land of Egypt, until God raised up Moses. And Moses brought the children of Israel out of bondage.
Exodus 15 v 1-6 the children of Israel sang the song of victory,
In the name of the almighty God, beginning from this moment on, all facet of bondage in Nigeria, shall vanish in Jesus name.
Who is a glory producer?
A glory producer is a sorrow removal, and the classical example here is Isaac
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said I will draw the attentions of helpers to you.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said though you started badly, I will help you succeed.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said every negative prophecy concerning you has been cancelled.
I want to preach He is speaking.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said you have just lost your greatest supporter, the Lord asked me to assure you, ‘I will support you’!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said I will make it easy for you to excel.
So, a glory producer is a sorrow removal and according to Genesis 21 v 1- 6, when Isaac was born, the mother who has been sad for more than ninety years, said “God has made me laugh and all that hear will laugh with me”.
I decree in the name that is above every other name, that before the end of this year, the world will come and celebrate with you.
So when you know the opposite of glory; shame, reproach, failure, defeat, bondage, sorrow then you know that a glory producer is someone who removes the opposite of glory.
But them there is another way of producing glory and this has to do particularly with the youth. That is going beyond the greatness of your parent, and going beyond their highest expectation of you.
The most outstanding way of producing glory is to be greater than your parents. And exceed their grates expectation of you.
The bible tells us, that Abraham was great Genesis 24v 34 -35 and then the bible says Isaac was greater, Genesis 26 v 12- 14 and then Jacob was greater than Isaac, Genesis 30 v 40 – 43.
So we see a great father, Abraham, a greater son, Isaac, and even a greater grandson Jacob.
And I am praying for every youth here, no matter how great your parents were, you will surpass all of them.
Now I know that some of your parents are great, they are already very big people, very great people and you looked at them and you say ‘how can I ever catch up with this person?’
There is a God, a God in the heavens who can make a son greater than his father; the God of Isaac who made him greater than Abraham, That same God is here tonight and if you will allow him, he will pick up where you are now and make you greater than your parents in Jesus name.
Then there is this young man, who exceeded his father’s expectation, his name was Elisha. In 2king 2 v 9-15 his father asked him; ‘I am about to go, what do you want? What do you want me to give you as a heritage?’ And Elisha said to Elisha, I want double portion of your spirit.
And Elijah said ‘what is wrong with you? What do you think you are asking for? Don’t you know who your father is? The spirit that is on my call down fire from fire at will, raise the dead, sealed the heavens, and that is not enough for you?
The boy said you are the one who asked me to ask and I have asked that is what I want. Your expectation is that I will be like you; my desire is that I will be twice as great as you.
Elijah said you asked a hard thing, but if you see me, when the one who sent me has come for me, you will get what you have asked for.
I say to somebody here today, as the Lord God of Elijah lives, those of you who want to be greater than your parents, you will excel them all in Jesus name.
Halleluiah! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he asked me to tell you, stop blaming people rest your case with me.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said whatever was not in you when I made you shall be uprooted tonight.
I want to say amen to this first, The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said I will keep you away from evil, I will keep evil away from you.
Thank you my father!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said I will give you both strength and speed.
So what have all these glory producers in common?
Those glory producer that we have mentioned and there are many more example but because of time.
What are those things that all these glory producers have in common? So that I too can grab those things and I too can become a glory producer.
1) Faith; they all had faith Mark 11 v 22- 24 says have faith in God. If you have faith and you doubt not, you will say to this mountain be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea and it will obey you. If you have faith you will be able to remove shame, if you have faith you will be able to remove the mountain of failure, the mountain of reproach, the mountain of defeat, the mountain of bondage and the mountain of sorrow.
When David was going to face Goliath he ‘said I come against you in the name of the Lord of host’. He believed that there is power in the Lord of host.
How many of you believed that in the mountain before you shall move in the name of Jesus Christ? So shall it be in Jesus name.
2) The second thing they have in common is anointing; there is an anointing of God on every glory producer. The bible says in Zach 4 v 6, it says not by power, not by might but by my spirit. Anyone who is going to produce glory must have the anointing of God working upon him. David was anointed before he began to box a lion and a bear to death…
There was a special anointing on Elijah that was transferred to Elisha; there was a special anointing in Moses that was transfers to Joshua, when he laid his hands on him.
I am praying for all of you youth, even before your convention ends tomorrow, the anointing of the Almighty God will descend upon you.
The bible say in Act 10 v38 he said how God anoint Jesus Christ of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and power, who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil, for God was with him.
Anointing is necessary to destroy yoke that is why the every child of God who is truly born again must seek the baptism of the Holy Spirit urgently, because the anointing comes through the Holy Spirit.
3) The third thing that these people had in common is to total submission to authorities. Total submission to the authority of parent, whether biological or spiritual.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said this very night; I will bring you out of the den of lions.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; you said your river that seems dry now shall soon overflow.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said your question had been ‘Lord when will someone succeed in my family?, the Lord asks me to tell you; we will start with you.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight,
I have to tell you a story; several years ago, when the Holy Ghost service just started, the Federal Minister announced; that because there was a little goes slow on the express way, he will close down Redemption camp.
At the beginning of the year, God has said that he was going to advertise his church, so this minister said I will close down Redemption camp and suddenly everybody began to wonder, ‘what is going on in Redemption camp’, instead of Redemption camp being closed down, attendance began to soar.
The Lord asked me to tell someone here tonight, your present embarrassment is going to turn out to be a divine advertisement.
I think the youth must have prayed very well, the Lord is really, really interested in the youth tonight.
James 4 v 7 says, that you must first of all submit to God before you resist the devil.
When you look at the example of Isaac in Genesis 22 v 1-18 how did Isaac become somebody who will exceed, excel, and go beyond his father?, it is because he surrender completely to his father.
The father was going to offer him as a sacrifice; the father was almost 120 years old. Isaac was only fifteen, how can an old man bind a young man? If the boy didn’t surrender!
All he has to do is to run away; let a fifteen year old and a hundred and twenty years old run a race and see who will win. We know who will win, but this boy surrender.
And because he surrender to the authority of his father, God said Abraham, I swear, in blessing I will bless you and he turned to Isaac, in multiplying, I will multiply you. I will bless your father; I will multiply you, because you surrender to the authority of your father.
How did Elisha manage to get the portion of the anointing of Elijah? He surrendered completely to the authority of his spiritual father, completely. Whatever daddy says that is what I do read the story in 2King 2 v 1-8, wherever you go, I go, whatever you want done that is what I will do, that is what the father say what do you want?
Let me conclude, because there is a lot that God wants to do tonight, do you know that according to the word of God everyone who is a Christian here tonight, can exceed, what Jesus did when he was here on earth? He said so himself in; John 14 v 12 he said the works that I did, you shall do also, he said greater works than this shall you do. He said I opened blind eye; you will do the same, I made the lame to walk; you will do the same, I raise the dead; you will do the same, he said even greater than that you will do.
Subject to one condition; TOTAL SUBMISSION, in Matthew 11 v 28- 30 he said come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest, he said take my yoke upon me, learn of me and you will have rest for your soul, he said I am meek and lowly, and he said my burden is light, my yoke is easy.
You want to be a glory producer, wherever you go, you want glory to be produced; you want to be one of those people who will change shame to glory. Who will remove reproach from lives, who will change failure to success, change defeat to victory, change bondage to freedom, change sorrow to joy, you want to be one of those people that when they arrived, miracles arrived, then you must surrender completely to Jesus Christ.
Total surrender , total obedience, willingness to do whatever he says, that is all he requires, so I am appealing to all of you who are here tonight, who are here to surrender their live to Jesus, come and do so now and you will have a brand new beginning, you see the word of God is clear, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things has passed away , behold all things are new, if you have not given your life to Jesus and you want to do so, you want shame to end , you want failure to end, defeat to defend, you want bondage to end, you want sorrow to end.
Come and give your life to Jesus, If you want to be a vessel that God will use to produce glory, in the lives of several people, some and surrender your life to Jesus.
I will count from one to ten; those of you who want to give your life to Jesus, before I say ten you must be standing before me here. I know some of you are very far away so you better begin to come very quickly.
Pray as you come, ask him to forgive you your sin. And the rest of us, let us talk to the almighty God for them, pray that God will forgive them and cleanse them in his blood, wipe away their sorrow. Lets pray for them brethren, and those of you in the front keep on talking to God, ask him to save your soul, ask him to be merciful to you, promise him that you will serve him for the rest of your life.
Thank you Jesus, Glory be to God… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
My father and my God I want to bless your holy name, I want to thank you for your word that has gone forth tonight, I want to thank you for speaking to us from heaven. Please accept our thanks in Jesus name. I want to thank you for these your children who has come forward, every one of them receive them in Jesus name, forgive them in Jesus name, wash away their sin with your blood tonight in Jesus name. every one of them tonight, save their soul, write their name in the book of life and from now anytime when they call on you answer them in Jesus name, don’t let them go back to the world, but t let them serve you till the end,. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed,
Amen praise the Lord, now those of you who are in the front, let me hear you shout a big halleluiah, now I am rejoicing with you tonight, because God himself is rejoicing with you in Heaven, And I want to make you a solemn promise, by the grace of God every day I will be praying for you, and very soon you will be receiving miracle you didn’t even ask for, and then you will know somebody is somewhere praying for you. so I am going to need your name, your address and your prayer request.
How many of you are willing to surrender completely to the almighty God for the rest of your life, please stand on your feet and let me hear you shout halleluiah!
I want to pray this prayer with all your heart. Say father! Make me a channel of blessing, let me be a glory producer, where there is shame, let me bring glory, where there is reproach let me bring your blessing, where there is failure, let me bring success, where there is defeat let me bring victory, where there is bondage let me bring freedom, where there is sorrow let me bring joy, father make me a channel of blessing.
Don’t forget, we are seventy two days to the congress and our theme song is :
Rejoice; rejoice the Lord Jesus reigneth,
He reigneth in my life, he reigneth in my soul
I want you to lift your hands to the almighty, what God is doing here, is not being done anywhere else in the world, bless God that you are part of it. Bless God that you are hearing these testimonies, because your own is already on the way.
Bless his holy name, because he is a faithful God, he is a powerful God, he is a God who will never fail, give him glory, give him honor, give him adoration. Thank you Father in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Finally I want to appeal to you one more time that anytime you have a special request, believe that during this gathering, God will do your own. Don’t wait and say I want to try and see the G.O, by so doing you are delaying your miracle.
The anointing here, with this multitude join you to say amen, the anointing here when the G.O is standing right at the altar is far greater than any anointing in any office. So I am going to give you one more opportunity, anything you want from God, ask him now, because I am going to pray for you now, and you must take your miracle now, all these thousands of thousands of people will be joining you in saying amen, that is more powerful than your amen alone. Believe for now!
Thank you father… thank you Jesus in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Father Lord almighty thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you , thank you , thank you. Accept our thanks in Jesus name.
I commit all these children into your hands, everything they have asked for now, by the time they come in Nov, let them have their testimonies. No matter how big, what they have asked for, even before the sun rises today, change their request to testimonies.
You have done the miracle for others, they have testified to the glory of your name. Father, perform their miracles for them in Jesus name. Let their testimonies be bigger than others.
Father, bless the offering of your children, sanctify it and use it for your glory in Jesus name and I pray that your children will never Lack in Jesus name.
As you go God will go with you, his protection will be solid over you, the enemy will stay away from you, evil will stay away from you, you will stay away from evil, you will never know sorrow again, for the rest of your life it will be glory nonstop in Jesus name.
It shall be well with you, all the dangers left in this year, none will come near you at all, only joy will be your, God will grant your request, and your joy will overflow, you too will be a glory producer in Jesus mighty name we have prayed, if you receive that let me hear you shout halleluiah, go in peace, God will go with you.

Let somebody shout halleluiah!
1king18 v 41- 45 And Elijah said unto Ahab, get thee up, eat and drink for there is a sound of abundance of rain. So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees, and said to his servant, go up now , look towards the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said, there is nothing. And he said, go again seven times.
And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said Behold, there arises a little cloud out of the sea, like a man’s hand. And he said, go up, say unto Ahab, prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that rain stop thee not.
And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.
And there was a great rain, there is going to be a great rain here tonight; rain of joy, rain of freedom, rain of healings, rain of deliverance, rain of miracles, rain of signs and wonders, rain of testimonies.
How many of you will be soaked in the rain tonight? Let me hear you say a halleluiah loud and clear.
Israel had been in the longest dry season of a season; for more than three years there had been no rain.
Suddenly the prophet of God rose up and said “I hear the sound of abundance of rain”.
2Chronicle 20 v 20 says if you believe the Lord your God you will be established, if you believe His prophet you shall prosper. How many of you believe in God here tonight? Tell the almighty God, I believe you oh Lord!
How many of you believe his prophet here tonight, tell the almighty God I believe your prophet and so I shall prosper.
Our God is not a talkative. He normally speaks once; when he speaks twice it means the matter is serious, if he speak three times; it means the matter is critical. If he speaks four times; it means the matter is extra ordinary. Four times God said “the just shall live by faith”
When the man of God was prophesying; the sky was cloudless. No cloud at all, no sign of rain.
When you look around you today; you may not see any sign of abundance of rain, but then I want to assure you, I have heard the sound of abundance of rain.
Whatever you see is temporal 2Corinthians 4 v 18 tell us that whatever we can see is only for a short while. Whatever is going to last forever is what you can see now. The just shall live by faith. 2Corinthians 5 v 7 says we live by faith not by sight.
I can assure you, I have heard the sound of abundance of rain. Before long there will be showers of blessing.
It may not look like so now, but believe me honestly but God has spoken and when God speaks it is settled.
The Almighty God told Elijah in 1King18v 21, he said go and meet Ahab, I will send rain unto the earth.
My Daddy in heaven spoke to me, He said get your children together in November, let them know that you have heard the sound of abundance of rain and I will send rain upon this land. The Bible tells us, forever oh Lord, your word is settled.
Psalm 33 v 8 – 9 tells us that once God has spoken, then it is already done, once he says it is already done.
The bible tells us in Isaiah 55v 10-11, that the word of God will not return to Him void; once he has spoken, I can assure you it will come to pass.
One of the testimonies that gave me joy last month; is the testimony of a man that came here with his child. The wife came here ten years ago, the baby inside her was dead and the word of God came and said there is a woman her, the baby inside her is dead, but now the baby is coming back to life.
And as there were going home, the wife said to the husband, the baby said the baby is moving again, the husband didn’t believe but we saw the baby last month, ten year old, beautiful thing.
The word of God is coming to somebody here tonight; very soon there will be showers of blessing upon you.
When God speaks, it is settled, why? Because He can bring something out of nothing.
When you read Genesis 1 v 20 – 23 He spoke, He said to the waters, bring forth abundantly, and suddenly fish began to come forth, small ones, big once, plenty of them. He said to the sky bring forth abundantly and birds, filled the sky. He spoke to the earth brig forth abundantly an animal’s of all types, they began to come and it all happened in one day, the fifth day, He spoke a word and miracles began, in the lives of somebody here today, abundance begins.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is a woman here tonight; he said your breast will soon begin to flow with milk.
Exodus 17 v1- 6 God brought water out of the rock, enough to satisfy a whole nation, he can bring something out of nothing.
Once he says this is what I am going to do, nobody can stop him and he can take little and turn it into much. In1King 17v 8 -16 he took the little meal of a widow and multiplied it, that it became food that lasted more than two years.
In John 6 v 5-13 He took five loaves of bread and two fishes and uses it to filled five thousand people; plus women and children.
This God that we serve, when he says he wants to do someone, you don’t need to doubt him, whatever he says he will do, it is already done.
Many at times before He announces it, He has already done it, now He can use any means, He have a million was, while you don’t have one, when you are thinking how will God do this and you are trying to calculate, you are trying to use your wisdom.
When you expect God to come from the right, he will come from the left. When you think he will use the method he used last year, he will use a new one.
In Isaiah 55v 8 – 9 it tells us that his ways are not our ways, he said even as the heaven is higher than the earth, so high are his way above our ways, he can use any means. He can use birds; when he wanted to feed Elijah for a whole year he use birds.
When he wanted to pay the tax of himself and Peter, he sent a fish.
In 2Kings 7 v 1-1, he used lepers to bring abundance to a whole city.
I don’t know what method God is going to use but I know that there is somebody here tonight, before the end of this moth you are going to shout for joy.
I was telling someone people remember as I remembered something that happen years ago.
I have prepared my PHD thesis, I have sent the thesis to be bound by the university press and I need fifty naira to collect.
I was a given a scholarship by the university as research grant, and I had deliberately kept fifty naira aside and it was with my head of department, that when I need it, I will call for it, time came and I needed the money.
I went to him, “sir, I need the remaining part of my grant, he said what do you want to use it for? I want to use it to collect my thesis in my university, he said the money is not for binding thesis; it is for going to other university to collect material not for thesis. I said I have done all that, please sir, this money is mine.
He said no, I won’t give it to you. And the deadline for the submission for my thesis was tomorrow. Now fifty naira may not sound much to you now but in 1974, it was a lot of money and I didn’t even have five naira, I got home that night, I told my wife, I am in trouble. Both of us lifted our voices to God and we cry for help. There was nobody we knew that we could go to. So we sat down there we couldn’t sleep. Around something between twelve midnight to one, somebody came knocking on our door, people don’t wonder around in Lagos. He said I couldn’t sleep, remember the money I owed you three years ago, and I want to pay it tonight and he owed me fifty naira.
I was expecting help from my head of department, the man who owe me, three years ago that we have even forgotten, God didn’t allow him to sleep.
Anyone who is holding on to your miracle will no longer be able to sleep.
God can use any method; you don’t know where he is going to come for, one thing is certain, he will come.
I still remember another occasion in 1979, we were getting ready for the Congress, we called it Christ redeemer congress in those days, we will go from city to city to hold it and we use to feed everybody who came, we were smaller then. My wife and I went to the market to go and price cows. We wanted to but three cows to feed the people,
When we heard the price; seven hundred and fifty naira, for three cows, we ran back home, we didn’t have 750. God what are we going to do? Where shall we get the money, we ran back home, sat down praying, suddenly somebody knock at the door, we opened the door, it was a brother who came all the way from Lagos.
He said, sir, I hope you have not bought cows? We said ‘no, we have no money’, he said ‘because I have already bought three for you’.
There is somebody here tonight, before the end of this month you will receive a visitor of Joy.
Our God can use any means; he can use birds, he can use fish, he can use leper, he can use your neighbor, and He can even use your enemies.
And now this God controls who hears what.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone one here tonight, He said your live will never be at a standstill again.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said your sorrow over your children will soon turn to testimonies.
God controls who hear what, those of you who came to the Holy Communion yesterday I told you from Exodus 12 v 29-32.
The bible says, the children of Egypt heard the sound of weeping in every home, because God visited them and killed the first born of every house. It was sound of sorrow that they heard.
But the children of Israel heard the sound of freedom. Your enemies will hear the sound of sorrow very soon, so that they can release you and let you go.
God controls who hear what, Bartimeus hear the sound of multitude, as for the multitude all they were hearing was the noise of people talking. But Bartimeus heard the sound of healing coming his way. Tonight I can hear the sound of abundance of healing tonight. He control who hears what, those who will help you will hear from God tonight, God will say to them, help her, and help him.
I have told you the story of our camp ground in America, somebody spoke to a man I want you o go and buy a piece of property in such and such a place. The man said what do I need it for, I am not a farmer, I don’t need that kind of land, God said I am not saying you should buy I for yourself, those who will use it are coming, so the man went and bought the land.
Years past nothing happed. One day I was passing through Dallas going to Tulsa and I heard God speaking to me clearly ‘son, the head quarter of The Redeemed Christian Church of God in North America will be in Dallas.
We didn’t even have a house fellowship in America that time, but He told me I heard from Him and I told my son who was driving. This is what God said and he said amen. You know the kind of amen, some of you have been saying tonight. It doesn’t matter how shallow your amen may be, I have heard the sound of abundance of rain. Very soon there will be showers of blessings.
Years past, the Church started, in a very small way, a little here, a little there and one day my son who was driving me on that day went to a restaurant to eat and the man that God spoke to originally, was in the restaurant eating and Go spoke to the man and said look at that man, that is the representative of those who will use the land I ask you to buy. You will sell the land to them at the price you brought it originally; you must not add a dollar. So the man got up from his food, came to my son and said are you a pastor? My son said yes!
“Where do you come from?” “I come from Nigeria”. “What are you doing here?” “Missionary work.” “Do you need land?” “Oh yes, God told us our head quarters will be here” “The land is already waiting!”
There is somebody here tonight, where you are eating, you will get a visitor of joy, in your place of work you will get a visitor of joy, at night before you fall asleep, somebody will knock at the door and bring you a miracle in Jesus name.
I have just returned from America and as we were driving into our camp ground which has become bigger than it was, my son who drove me on the first day, reminded me of something I said a long time ago. As we were driving that very first day, there was a house there and as we were driving in, God spoke to me, He said “son that is your house”. How do I say this one? Because if the white man heard me saying anything like that he will bring his gun.
And I told my son, my son said if you say God said so, I have no doubt anymore. Year passed, finally the owner of the house called us and say I want to sell my house to you and my son told him, my daddy said so several years ago. The wife of the man said, why you didn’t tell us? We have been struggling whether to sell or not, we would have been saved from all the struggles.
God has spoken, concerning somebody here tonight; very soon you will also be hearing the sound of abundance of rain.
He decides who hears what! He decides who hear anything at all. In Proverbs 20 v 12 the Bible says the hearing, God has made it. God who has made the heart to hear, some people don’t hear when God is speaking.
I have told you the first time I heard prophesy;
I have just been born again and I went to the gathering of God’s children. Everybody was singing, clapping, I didn’t know the songs there, so I was just making a joyful noise with them. All of a sudden everything became quite it was as if somebody says quiet. Suddenly somebody began to speak; thou say the Lord and he began to talk. And I touched the man sittings next to me (the one who took me there). I said when did God say that? He said shhhhhhh! He Said, God is talking, I said I am not hearing anything, he said shut up!
When we left that meeting that day, my prayer to God that night is that God should open my hears , so I can be hearing from Him.
I pray for everybody here tonight, God will open your spiritual hear also.
Now there are sounds and there are sounds. Categories of sounds;
2king 7 v 6, the enemies of Israel heard the armies of God. Only four lepers were walking, but the almighty God turn the foot steeps of four lepers to the sound of a great army, so the enemies fled. All those who have laid a siege against you, they will hear the sound of the armies of God coming their way tonight.
In Act 2v1- 4 when the Holy Spirit came, they were a sound of a rushing mighty wind and the life of the children of God were never the same again. Tonight before we live here you will hear the sound Of God. InPsalm 89 v 15, the bible talks about the joyful sound, somebody is going to hear a joyful sound here today in the mighty name of Jesus.
But when you read Job 15 v 20 -25 the bible says the wicked shall hear a dreadful sound. Those who are doing evil, those who are planning evil, they will hear a dreadful sound. So there is the sound of the Lord’s army, the sound of the presence of the Holy Spirit, the joyful sound and then the dreadful sound for those who belong to the devil. Tonight, it is the sound of joy that you are going to hear in Jesus name.
Now so when Elijah said; I have heard the sound of abundance of rain, it told the servant, go and check do you see any cloud? He threw himself on the floor and he began to pray, the servant went first time, he came back he said nothing, go the second time, he came back, “nothing sir”, go the third time, “nothing sir”.
I know what I heard, go the fourth time, go the fifth time, go the sixth time, and keep going because I have heard the sound of the abundance of rain.
The boy went the seventh time and came back and said “I saw a little cloud rising”.
As the Lord lives, before the end of next week, God will give you a sign. No matter how little, even if it is like the seize of a fist of a man, God will give you a sign. You see, whenever God want to do great things, He always begin small. Job 8 v 7 he said though your beginning was small, yet your later end should greatly increase.
In Zachariah 4 v 10 the Almighty God said, don’t despise the days of small beginnings, because the days of rejoicing are coming. I think the speaker who spoke before us, said if there is something that have been dead because of lack of rain, as soon as rain comes, everything jumps back to life. Everything that you thought was already dead, all the beautiful project, that you thought are already dead, all the beautiful dreams that you think they are dead, before the end of this month they will jump back to life again.
Great things always begin small; during our first convention, our number one headache was water. As we were digging the well, they were collapsing. And one man came and said, what you need is a bore hole. We have no money for bore hole and within one week, he gave us a bore hole.
We rejoice, it was a day of small beginnings, we had eleven dormitories. Somebody describe it as hen houses, and that was exactly what they looked like then, but look at where God has brought us today and we have not even started, greater days are ahead.
No matter how little your beginning may be, you are not going to die small in Jesus name. A little cloud, a little sign that finally lead to showers.
The Almighty God said there is someone here today, he said strengthen you foundation in me, because a flood of blessing is coming your way.
Ezekiel 34 v 24 says there will be showers of blessing, that is what God promised and his word is forever settled.Zechariah 10 v 1 the Almighty God says; ask for rain and I will give you showers.
Now for whom, will the rain fall? It will fall for worshippers; David was a worshipper of God, he worshipped God in spirit and in truth, he was committed to God he said my heart is fixed within me, I will praise the Lord. He said I will bless the Lord at all times, he said His praise shall continually be in my mouth and God then said in that case, I will anoint your head with oil, your cup will run over. I am believing God that there is someone here tonight, who’s cup of blessing will begin to run over?
Who is that fellow; who whenever it is time to praise God, he will do it with all his heart? It is somebody that when we are asked to praise God, he will shout so much that God will say I have heard you. Showers of blessings, is not for those who are stingy with praise. If you can’t even praise him, how do you want him to put showers of blessing on you?
The Almighty God is going to put showers of blessing on worshippers. If you change your mind that from now on, you will worship God with all your heart, without shame, not caring what anybody will say. Even within one week your own rain will begin to fall.
In September, when the apostles came from all over the world and it was time to lay hands, I was standing there and the oldest man among the apostles came to me there; he said how old are you? I said 67; he said you are still a small boy. I can understand that what God want to do for you is still plenty. He said I have discovered something about you. you ways worship God, don’t stop, keep on worshipping God, don’t stop, you are still young, God still have all lot that he wants to do for you. There is somebody here tonight, I am repeating what that man says, you are still young, there is still a lot that God wants to do for you.
So let me hear you shout a really big halleluiah!
Who will God pour his showers upon? It is somebody who will put God first. And putting God first shows in several ways; who is the first fellow you greet in the morning, when you wake up? Many of you greet your husband first; many of you greet your wife first. In the past before you became born again, many of you greet cigarette first. Now who did you greet first?
When I wake up in the morning, before I greet anybody, I greet my God, I prostrate before him and say good morning Lord, any stranger who sees me will say; who is he greeting? You can’t see him but He is there.
Somebody said I don’t see anybody sitting on that chair, I said okay, somebody is sitting there, he said I can’t see him, I said He is there. He said I thought the chair belongs to the general overseer, I said no! That is the chair of the real General Overseer, the One who is the actual General Overseer. When you wake up in the morning from now on, greet God first, when you put Him first, nobody will beg you before you give Him your first fruit.
He said in his word in Proverbs 3 v 9-3 He said when you honour God with your first fruit, he said your barn, will burst. He will pour the abundant on you that your barn will burst. When you put God first, you won’t rob him of his tithe, no! he said in Malachi 3 v 8-10 He said if you rob me of my tithe, he said you are putting yourself under a curse, he said but when you bring all the tithe into my house, I will pour a blessing that you won’t have room enough to contain.
God is not going to release showers of blessing on a robber. He knows if he gives you that kind of blessing you will use it wrongly. Who will God pour shower of blessing upon? He has to be a child of God; God cannot pour His blessing upon somebody who is His enemy. No, He said, if you are not for Me, you are against Me, no middle way. It is either you are a child of God, or you are not a child of God. No middle way. If somebody comes to me to ask me, are you married? The answer can only be either yes or no. You can’t say well, I hope so, maybe, perhaps!
Are you a born again true child of God, the answer can only be yes! Or no! How do we know you are a child of God, he that is born of God does not sin.
Let me conclude because God wants to move mightily, He is already moving but tonight He is going to be extremely special. Amos 3 v 7 says God will not do a thing without first of all telling his servant the prophet. He won’t do anything without tell his prophet first. With all humility, I don’t claim to be a prophet, but I hear from God once in a while, and I have heard, I know what he wants to do. I have heard the sounds of abundance of rain.
Amos 4 v 7-8 he said God can cause it to rain on one part of a city and leave the other part dry. The elders have a saying; they say the rain can fall on one side of the tree, and leave the other part dry. That is the way God operate; will there be abundance of rain? It is settled! Absolutely settled! What remains to be settled is whether you will be part of the rain or not.
Elisha said “by this time of tomorrow, there will be abundance. One clever man said “even if God were to open windows in heaven, can these things be so? The man of God says “you will see it with your eyes, only you won’t eat part of it”. When I say there will be abundant, very, very soon, some of you will be saying, even if the federal government begin to distribute money , can it be so, with the present situation.
How is it going to happen, if you have any doubt, please keep it within yourself, don’t say it out because if you say it out, then you will see it, because it is going to happen. But if you express your doubt, then you will see it and you won’t taste part of it. But I know that there are some people here tonight, that it is because of you that God calls this meeting, because I know you believe in the word of God and you believe his prophet, and your days of prosperity have come. But there are someone people who came, who did not belong to Jesus Christ. But you can surrender your life to him tonight, you can forsake the life of sin tonight, you can come to him tonight for salvation. He will save your soul and suddenly you will become part of his family and when the rain begins to fall, you will have part of it.
There are some backslider too, who will change their mind tonight, who will say they want to return back to God, if they do so, he will receive them, he will restore them and when the rain begin to come, they will eat part of it. There are some children of God tonight, who have been robbing God of his tithe and offering, who have been robbing him of his first fruit, who will change their mind and ask God for forgiveness and restitute their ways, so that when the rain began to fall, they will have part of it.
So those of you who want to give your Live to God , you better come now, you must before me before I count ten, and those of you who are backslider and you want to return to the Almighty God, you better come before I count one to ten, if you want to come, come now. As you come begin to pray to God, save my soul oh! Lord, forgive all my sins; be my Lord, be my savior, I will serve you for the rest of my life. I will serve you wholeheartedly for the rest of my life. I will serve you. If you are a backslider begin to talk to God, tell him I have drifted away before, but now I have come back to you. God should receive you. Call on him for salvation, call on him for restoration, and call on him! The rest of us lets stretch our hands towards these people, ask God to be merciful unto them, ask God to save their souls, ask God to give them a brand new beginning.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed, my Father and my God I want to thank you for your word, I want to thank you for these your children that have come to surrender their lives to you, please receive them in Jesus name, forgive them in Jesus name. you blood that cleanses from all sins, let it wash away all their sins tonight in Jesus name, save their soul and write their names in the book of life in Jesus name, father when the showers of blessing begins to fall, include these you children in Jesus name. Every backslider who have come out tonight, receive them also in Jesus name, restore them also in Jesus name. And I pray that all of us will serve you to the end in Jesus name.
Thank you Father, in Jesus name we have prayed. Let me hear those of you in front shout halleluiah. I want to rejoice with you, because this night is a special night and I want to promise you as a man of God, by the special grace of God, from now on every day of my life I will praying for you and you will be receiving miracles you didn’t even ask for, so I am going to need your name, your address and your prayer request.
So if you will turn to your left, you will see a brother who will be leading you to where the men of God will take the information I need. Begin to go now, let’s give a round of applause as they go.
Elijah said I have heard the sound of abundance of rain and yet he pray seven times before the rain comes, this seven times I don’t want you to look at those who are on you right or on your right,
For seven minute cry to the Almighty God loud and cry, and say father, send the rain on me, cry to Him… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
I want you to spread your hands to the altar of God now and ask for something, something special; something that only God can do… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
The Almighty God will answer all your prayers, he will grant all your request, beginning from now,, there will be rain of joy upon you, there will be rain of blessing upon you, there will be rain of miracles upon you. There will never be sorrow again in your family. Even before the congress, your cup of blessing will already be overflowing.
It is going to be well with you, wherever you go, God Almighty will go with you, wherever there are accidents, it will not touch you at all, you will not go with this year, the Almighty God will take you rejoicing into the new year, the Almighty God will bless your offering and certifying and use it for His glory and you will never borrow again, you will never beg again, it will be well with you in Jesus name and you will serve the Lord in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let me hear somebody shout halleluiah!

I want to give all the glory to God for all he has done since Monday till now and I want to tell you on behalf of my daddy in heaven; that you should fasten your seat belts because the next couple of hour is going to change your destiny forever. I want to thank God for all my beloved brothers and sisters, the Governors, their wives who have come to honor God; God will honor you in return in Jesus name.
Let me make some announcement quickly because the moment we start, even I don’t know how the wind is going to blow tonight, all I know is that it is going to be a night never to be forgotten. December 31st we will have our last Holy communion here at 7:pm. this will be followed immediately by the service of song, and that will be followed with the watch night service.
January 4th 2010, we will have our first divine encounter, January 7th we will have our first holy communion of the New Year and on January 8th we will have the first Holy Ghost service of the New Year. It is not going to be on the first because even I want to spend first of the year with my family. So the first Holy Ghost of the New Year will be January 8th and the theme will be “THE OMNIPOTENT GOD”, so I will be looking forward to see you with mighty testimony by that time. Whether the devil like it or not; you will see the New Year! We will see the New Year!
For those of you who are watching by the internet and the television all over the whole world, am sure you know that my prayers are with you and the testimony of that sister who was in London by this time last year; who logged in and was watching what was going on here in London and got her miracle, should encourage those of you who are watching from all over the world, that our God is not limited he can reach you wherever you are all over the world ; I am joining my faith with yours; that you too will get your miracles tonight in Jesus name.
Isaiah 52 v 7 how beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that brings good tidings, that publishes peace; that brings good tidings of good, that publishes salvation; that says unto Zion; thy God reigns.
Tell the fellow next to you; my God reigns!
Who is our God?
On Monday we talked about him as the king of king and that the implication of him being the king of kings is that he controls all things. That he rules in the kingdom of men.
On Tuesday we talked about him as the Lord of lords and that the implication of that is that he is the one who makes things happen, and that except he makes things happen, they won’t happen. Unless he built the house, that laborer builds in vain. Unless he keeps the city the watch man wakes in vain.
On the Wednesday we saw him as the most high and that the implication of that is that he has the last word that He can overrule everyone else, but there is no one who can overrule him and that if he is your friend, you can be sure you will have the last laugh.
Yesterday we saw him as the king of glory, we said the implication of being the king of glory is that he can make all things beautiful, make all things glorious. That when he blesses, he adds no sorrow, when he heals; it is completely. When he conducts an operation; he won’t spill a drop of blood, he will not leave a scar behind.
Now we can go on and on talking about Our God, talk about him being the almighty in other words all power belongs to him. We can talk about him being the ancient of days; in order words he is older than your problems. That he can uproot every mountain in your life from the foundation. Because before the mountain were brought forth he was God.
We can talk about him being the all knowing God that what problems that you cannot even discuss with anyone he knows. And because he knows your needs, he knows how best to meet these needs.
And now he reigns, what do we mean by saying our God reign? And when we say our God reigns it means he is in charge and the word here is that he reigns, not that he had reigned; it means he is reigning right now. He has reigned before, he is reigning right now, he will reign forever. In order words he is in charge right now. He has always being in charge, there has never being a time when he was not in charge. Because according toPsalm 90 v 1-2…
Thank you father, he says there is someone here, he said the only thing that remains for you to do, for your breakthrough to come will be revealed to you before the end of this month.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said that you are so sick, you are almost on the point of death, but you came here with the determination that even if you are going to die, you should die on the camp ground. The Lord asked me to tell you, you are already healed.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said I have a place reserved for you where enemies can no longer molest and I will take you there tonight.
Daddy asked me to tell you a story; Years ago in the old auditorium, miracle were happening around the altar. And there was a short man in the crowd, when he wants to see what is happening in the front, somebody blocked his eyes, when he turns to the other side, somebody will block his sight and he said in his heart, oh God! I wish I were taller.
Immediately he said that, God heard in heaven and spoke to me and said; there is somebody in the crowd who just said this, ask him to check his trouser. Nothing has gone wrong with the trouser but he has grown taller. The Lord asked me to tell you that there is somebody here tonight, with the exact desire and the Lord asked me to tell you, checked within five minute, you will see that you are already taller.
Daddy says there is a woman here, there is no opening from your private part into your womb; the Lord asked me to tell you, he has made an opening now.
Daddy asked me to tell all of you who are here tonight; he will heal so many people that there will be no space to contain them in the front.
Psalm 90 v 1- 2 says from everlasting to everlasting he is God; which means he has always being in charge.Revelation 1 v 8 says he is the alpha as well as the Omega, which means he will always be in charge.
Exodus 3 v 14 He says I am that I am; that means he is in charge right now and so I want to ask somebody a question and I want you to answer this question truthfully; when do you want your miracle? Let me hear the answer again. Now what is the meaning of now, in one hours time, thirty minute from now, ten minute from now, five minutes from now. If you want your miracle right now say amen loud and clear. So don’t wait till I finish, just begin to rejoice.
Now what is the implication of our God riegneth? Very simple, it simply means that there can be no two captains in the same ship. We have a song that I am sure you know very well; it says for Jesus to reign and the devil to reign it is not possible.
We have another song that says Satan cannot build his house next to Jesus, that if he does, what shall we do to the house? The implication therefore, and I will try to be quick because I can feel the presence of God Almighty on the way tonight.
Jesus cannot reign and sickness will reign at the same time, Exodus 15 v 26 calls him the Lord that heals, the great physician, it is not possible for the great physician to be reigning and sickness will still be reigning. That is why in Mark 2 v 1 -12 when they brought the man who was paralyzed from neck downward to Jesus, jess was in charge, sickness came in, and sickness had to go. They carried the man in, he walked away. In that name that is above every other name, those of you that they carried in here tonight, you will leave whole in the name of Jesus.
Jesus cannot reign and then sickness will reign at the same time, that is why I want you to say very boldly and I want you to speak so that God will hear you because he said in his words, that as I heard in my hear so will I do unto you, so let him hear you tonight. Say it loud and clear, sickness you have to go from me tonight!
Number two, God cannot reign and demons will reign at the same time, it is not possible in Psalm 24 v 7-10the bible says this our God, is the Lord of host, he is the king of Glory, he is the Lord, the Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle, the Lord who controls all the host, the commander in chief of all the host cannot be reigning and demons will be reigning at the same time. 1Samuel 5 v 1-5 the bible tells us that when they took the ark of the covenant of God into the house of Dagon and idol, by the following morning, Dagon was prostrating on his face before the ark of the covenant of God.
The owners thought an accident happened and they picked it up and set it on his feet again, when they returned the following morning, Dagon has lost his head, lost his arm, lost his legs.
I decree here tonight that has God reigns, every demon on your life will lose their heads tonight in the name of Jesus.
Thank you Lord, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said all the problems you have accumulated since you are born, all of them, will be solved tonight.
The Lord said there is someone here who is troubled in heart tonight, the Lord asked me to tell you to be calm; my blood will speak for you tonight.
Am sure you know the story of Obed Edom, in case you don’t know, I will tell you quickly, Obed Edom was sitting down in his house when all of a sudden they brought the ark of the covenant of God into his house. Within three months, he prospers so mightily, that the whole nation heard about him, the Lord asked me to tell somebody here tonight, prepare for an unexpected divine visitation.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said the gift that will take you to the top is already in you, I will activate it tonight.
Now I was talking about Mark 5 v 1 -15, it is the story of the mad man of Gadarenes, he had at least two thousand demons in him, but he came in contact with our God. Since the Lord of host cannot reign and demon reign, within seconds all the demons vanished? And I am speaking on the authority of the word of God that every demons that followed you here tonight, not a single one of them will follow you back home in Jesus name.
It is not possible for our God to reign and darkness will also reign there at the same time because in John 9 v5,our God described himself as the light of the world and we all know that when light come in darkness must disappear. In Mark 10 v 46 -52 when Bartimeus who has been in darkness all his life came in contact with our God, his darkness changed to light.
Every darkness in your life, because God reigns shall change to light tonight in Jesus name. it is no possible for our God to reign and then sorrow will reign at the same time, because according to Psalm 16 v 11 the bible says in the presence of Our God there is the fullness of joy, where fullness of Joy is reigning, it is not possible for sorrow to reign at the same time, in Luke 7 v 11- 15 the bible tell us the story of a widow who had an only son and that son died. When we talk about sorrow, you can imagine the sorrow of a woman without an only son who lost that son. And then she came in contact with our God and her story changed to joy. I am standing here as the representative of the Most high God and I am saying to all of you who are here, because my God reigns, you will never know sorrow again.
Or maybe I should say there is someone here, someone who will never weep again, if you are the one let me hear your “amen” loud and clear.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, asked me to tell you ; hold on just a little longer, he said help is on the way.
He says there is someone here tonight, he asked me to tell you, I assure you, it is not too late yet.
He said there is somebody here tonight, he said you have been saying; why is God so quiet about my case, he asked me to tell you, he said it is because he is getting ready to laugh at your enemies.
Let me say amen to this one before I tell you; because I believe this is probably for a man of God, it could be for you too, you never can tell.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said there is a level of anointing you can’t even dream of but you will begin to tap from it from tonight on in Jesus name.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said the kind of Joy that makes people to roll on the ground is coming your way.
Thank you daddy!
Our God cannot reign and failure will reign at the same time because according to Psalm 91 v 1 the bible calls our God the almighty, almighty means the one with the one will all powers, the God who can do all things, the God who cannot possibly fail. So it is not possible for God to reign and failure will reign at the same time. InLuke 5 v 1 -7 we find that Peter had failed all night then our King came into his boat and his failure ended permanently that day. Because our God reign; I decree to somebody here tonight, you will never know failure again.
It is not possible for our God to reign and bareness will reign also because, this our God according to the word of God, he is so powerful that he can bring children out of stones.
You’ve heard the testimony of a lady who is almost going to sixty years and as far as the doctors are concerned, the possibility of her ever getting pregnant is almost impossible if not almost zero. And God gave her a child and while we are still rejoicing over the first, God gave here another one.
Those of you who were here last month, you heard of a sister who was about fifty years of age too and when she missed her period the doctor told her it was menopause and she had never been pregnant before. Nine month later, menopause produces a child.
I am decreeing to every woman here tonight, trusting God for the fruit of the womb, I don’t care how old you are because my God reigns, by this time next year, your children will be three months old.
In Genesis 18 v 9 -14 when God talk to Sarah you will have a son at the age of ninety. She laughed, but her laughter didn’t stop God, it doesn’t matter who is laughing or who doubts because my God reigns, there will be laughter in your family in Jesus name. Our God cannot reign and then poverty will reign, why? Because according to Genesis 17 v 1,our God is called Jehovah El- shaddai, the al sufficient God, the in exhaustible God, the God who according to bible scholar is called, your mothers breast; no matter how matter how you suck milk from your mother breast, you can never empty it. All those who say you are going to die poor; God is going to surprise them. It is not possible for poverty to reign where God is reigning.
I like what Doctor Myles said yesterday that the reason Jesus didn’t preach prosperity is because there is no poverty in Heaven. I am decreeing today that poverty will leave you alone.
Halleluiah, the Lord said there is a family here today, he said in the New Year a Joseph will be born in your family.
The Lord asked me to tell you to do something, I hope you will do it, will u do it? He asked me to tell you to laugh… the Lord asked me to tell u that every one of you that laughed tonight, something that will bring laughter will never end in your family.
He asked me to tell you to do another thing; he said you should lift your hands to heaven and say I received. Say it one more time, maybe you should say it another time.
He asked me to tell you; I have put a key into your hand, every door you want to be opened will be opened unto you now. Put your hands together for the almighty God.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said those who saw you go down, will see you rise up again.
Halleluiah! Amen and amen, my daddy says there is someone here tonight and that fellow has to be me, no doubt, he says expect three major breakthroughs in the first quarter of the year.
Now what are the implications of the fact that our God reigns, what does it mean, where he reigns sickness can reign, demons can reign, darkness can reign, sorrow can reign, failure cant reign, barrenness cant reign, poverty can reign and so on and so forth.
If I am to tie it together, the elders in Africa have a saying; they say the cat travelled, the house became the house of mice. Now when the cat returns, what will happen to the mice?
Our God reigns means the cat has returned, every sickness that has been harboring in your body; they have to scatter now, every demon, they have to scatter now. Failure, has to scatter now, darkness has to scatter now. Sorrow has to scatter now, barrenness has to scatter now. Poverty has to scatter now.
Whatever problem you have before they must scatter now, the bible says every plant my father did not plant shall be rooted out. Every mountain that the Lord did not plant in your life must be rooted out. The bible says every army that gathers against you must be scattered. Every storm that is in your life, because my God reigns, they must be stilled now.
Lift your voice to the almighty God and shout my God reigns.
Thank you almighty God!
I am going to allow you to pray in a moment and let me conclude this way, it is important to note that there can never be two captains in the same ship. If you claim that your God reigns, the moment he steps into your life, he takes absolute control, absolutely.
When he steps into the boat of Peter, failure jumped out but he became the controller of the boat. He became the one commanding the owner of the boat, telling him push the boat out. Stand here while I preach, I have finish preaching now, launched into the deep. Throw your net to the right.
The moment my God comes into your life, he takes over, so you need to know that before you commit yourself. When he comes to your house, he will not be a tenant, he will become the landlord. When he comes into your marriage; he will not be a friend of the groom or the bride, he will be in charge, but then there will be no barrenness in the marriage.
When he comes into your business, he becomes the CEO, the one in charge but then poverty will leave that business alone.
I will tell you a story and then we will pray; a true story.
Am sure some of you have heard it before, some of you have heard it before. My first miracle after I became born again; my child was born naturally after three cesarean operation, became sick after two years, he refused to eat. He couldn’t go into the toilet, first day, second day… we had taken Jesus as our doctor, and the boy had never used any drug before. We prayed, we fasted, first day, second day, one week, eight days, nine days, ten days…
Two year old boy; no food for ten days! No going to the toilet for ten days! The boy was practically dying.
I cried to God, what else am I suppose to do, I have pray, I have fasted, I have break and I have loosed, why don’t you lose my son and he answered me immediately, He said “because he is your son” and the Holy Spirit helped me and I understand immediately. Because this boy is a miracle boy, I treasured him so much; he has practically become an idol to me. So I changed my prayer, I said father heal your son, he is not my son anymore, heal your son. Within one hour; the child has gone to the toilet, the child has eaten, the child was already playing, and there was no trace of sickness left because I allowed him to take control.
Any area of your life that you don’t surrender unto him, any are where it is not reigning , that is where the devil can play tricks. If you say our God reigns, you must hand over everything to him completely. If he reigns in your home there will be peace there, if he reigns in every areas of your life. You will never know what is called defeat or sorrow again.
So before we pray tonight, make up your mind; I am asking you to reign in my life, with the understanding, that from now on, you will be in charge, whatever you ask me to do, that is what I will do, ask me to sit down; I will seat down, ask me to stand; I will stand, ask me to pray; I will pray. Ask me to fast; I will fast, Ask me to tithe; I will tithe, ask me to give an offering; I will give it cheerfully. Ask me to study the bible I will study the bible, ask me to witness; I will witness. When I ask you to come and reign in my life, I understand what I am saying; I am saying come and take absolute control.
If you mean that tonight, for the rest of your life you will remember tonight as the turning point, when everything changes for the better , I can assure you of that.
That is why if there is anyone here tonight, who has not surrender his/her life to Jesus. I want to give you an opportunity to come and surrender your life to him tonight, now I know there are some of you more than a kilometer again, if you look very close to you, you will see some little altars in the auditorium, if you go there, God will see you there that you have gone there to surrender your life. And there are some senior pastors, who are stationed at the various small altars to attend to you there. But if you are close to the front; then you come and stand before me here, when I pray from here; it will reach those of you who are in front here and it will reach those of you at those various altars, about 49 of them in the auditorium and God will save your souls at the same time.
The greatest miracle that can ever happen to you is the miracle of salvation and then God almighty will begin to do what no human being can do for you.
Those of you at the various altar, i want you to begin to pray to God, ask him to have mercy on you, ask him to save your soul, ask him to become your Lord and your savior, begin to talk to him now and the rest of us lets stretch our hands to these people. And those of you near the various altars, just stretch your hand towards these people, and pray for them; that the one who save your soul will save their soul. Please pray for them for a moment. Those of you before all the altars talk to the Almighty God now, pray to God, ask God to be merciful unto you and save your soul, cleanse you in his blood, ask him to become your Lord and savior from now on. Those of you who are still on the way hurry up because am about to pray now.
I want to pray for all of you now and I want to hear your amen loud and clear from every place.
In the mighty name of Jesus, savior I want to bless your name, I want to thank you for your word, I want to thank you because with you nothing shall be impossible, you promised oh Lord, that whosoever will come unto you, you will in no wise cast out, these your children have come out now, receive them in Jesus name, cleanse them in Jesus name, forgive all their sins tonight in Jesus name, save their souls oh Lord and write their name in the book of life in Jesus name.
Father I pray that from this moment onward, you will take control of their lives in Jesus name, and I pray that they will never go back into the kingdom of Satan in Jesus name. Thank you father, in Jesus mighty name I have prayed.
Now all of you in the various center, I am rejoicing with you know. Because from now on, I will be praying for you, very soon you will be receiving miracle you didn’t even asked for then you will know that there must be someone somewhere praying for you. So the counselors are going to give you certain cards which I want you to fill. I want you to write your names, your address and your principal prayer request. We will collect them together, they will give them to me, and I promise you that I will be praying for you.
I want us to pray with all our heart first of all; for all that he has done in our life tonight. Let me hear you shout halleluiah!, now lift your voice to the Almighty God and say father, come and reign in my life, come and reign in my business, come and reign in my home, come and reign in my business, come and reign in my marriage, come and reign completely, come and reign supreme, reign in my finances, reign in everything that has to deal with me, come and reign, come and reign…
