Prayer for the children born in the month of January
Father we commit all the children born in the month of January into your hands… all these your children, for the rest of their lives, let them first; let them be head, don’t let them ever be tail. When it is time to give miracle, give to them first, when you are looking for people to bless; bless them first. When you are looking for people who will serve you , choose them firs. In all areas of their lives let it be well with them, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen.
2 king 4v 18 – 26 and when the child was grown, it fell on a day, that he went out to his father to the reapers. And he said unto his father, my head, my head. And he said to a lad, carry him to his mother. And when he had taken him, and brought him to his mother, he sat on her knees till noon, and then he died. And she went up, and laid him on the bed of the man of God and shut the door upon him, and went out. And she called unto her husband, and said send me, I pray thee, one of the young men, and one of the asses, that I may run to the man of God , and come again. And he said wherefore will thou go to him today, it is neither new moon or Sabbath. She said it is well, then she saddled an ass, and said to her servant, drive, and go forward; slack not thy riding for me except I bid thee. So she went and came unto the man of God to Mount Carmel. And it came to pass, when the man of God saw her afar off, that he said to Gehazi his servant, Behold, yonder is that Shunamite. Run now, I pray thee, to meet her and say unto her, is it well with thee? Is it well with thy husband? Is it well with the child? And she answered, it is well.
By the time the sun rises tomorrow, there is somebody her who will move from all will be well to it is well.
You know the story of this woman very well, she loved the Lord, she was a giver; one day she saw the man of God passing by, she said sir, you must come and eat in my house, the man of God said thank you I am not hungry, the Lord is my shepherd I don’t lack anything, she said, I know, but you are not going anywhere, unless you come to my house to eat. Very stubborn woman, but stubbornly good, So the man of God went to her house to eat, enjoy the food, so anytime he is passing by, he will now invite himself. By the time he has been coming two or three times, the woman decide to increase her giving, got permission from her husband, and built a house for the man of God, furnish it, so that the man of God will not be eating an occasional lunch, he can come and ea, breakfast, lunch and dinner and slept over.
One day, God said to the man of God, as he was lying on the bed that this woman made; you’ve been eating this woman’s food, sleeping on her bed, in the house she built, you didn’t even ask her if she has any need at all, the man of God said, with everything her, this woman needs nothing. In any case, woman what do you need? You want a contract with the king or with the general? She said no I don’t need anything. The man of God said oh God! Didn’t I tell you? She doesn’t need anything, the Lord said ask, finally they discovered that the woman was barren. The man of God said wonderful, you have money but you can buy a child, I don’t have money but I have contact with God.
There is somebody here tonight; that which you need, that money cannot buy, receive it tonight in Jesus name.
So the man of God said, good, you’ve done what you can do for me, I will do what I can do for you. Nine months from now you will have a baby boy. The woman said sir, if you enjoy my food, just say thank you and keep going, don’t deceive me, the man of God said I have already spoken and it is already done, nine months later the baby came. You can imagine the joy of the woman that day; that at long last, my joy if full, my testimony is complete, now I have everything.
And then the child began to grow, and you can be sure they took all the care they can of these child, but then one day, the child said to the mother, I want to go and see my daddy on the field, you can go and the boy went, suddenly the boy began to say my head, my head. So the father say it must be the sun,, take her to her mother, the child came still crying my head, my head, his mother out her on her kneel and at moon she died.
The woman said, death you are joking this is one victim you are going to vomit, I decree to someone here today, everything the devil has stolen from you, you will get back this year in Jesus amen.
So she took the child, opens the door of the room of the man of God and laid him on the bed, close the door, then sent to her husband, I need a means of transportation, the one that can move very fast, I want to go and see the man of God. From the answer of the husband, you will see that the woman has constantly be seeing the man of God, new moon, every Sabbath she will take something to the man of God, it is not new moon, it is not Sabbath, why are you going to the man of God today? She said all will be well. Tell your neighbor, you know, he is saying to me all will be well. Then she got to the man of God, the man of God saw her coming, this is a strange visit, servant, go and ask her, how is your husband? All it well, what about you? All is well, what about your child? That is where some women will have broken down) but she said all will be well, how many of you believe all will be well with you this year. You can read the rest of the story, you know the story and finally all was well.
I just want to bring to your attention some point, because we are going to spend some quality time to pray.
Point number one, There is someone called the prince of peace, and who is this prince of peace? “JESUS” the fact that you love God does not mean there won’t be crises in your life. Problems are part and parcel of life, both for Christians and non Christians. If anybody tells you that the moment you become Christian, there will be no more problems, he is lying to you. Because when you become a Christian, you have escape for the cage of Satan and the elder have a saying that it is right for a slave to escape, it is also right, for the owner of the slave to purse the slave.
The difference between you being a Christian is that when the storm of life comes, you already have the prince of peace with you and one word from Him, will still the storm, every storm in your life shall be still tonight in Jesus name. Psalm 34 v 19 says many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him from them all. He didn’t say the righteous will never have problem, in fact he says he will have many, but he said he will be deliver out of them all, in John 16 v 33 Jesus Christ himself said in this world, you will have tribulation but be of Good cheer, I have overcome the world. In Isaiah 43 v 2 he said when you pass through the rivers, it will not overflow you, when you pass through fire it will not burn you he said because I will be with you.
When! Not if, when you pass through the fire. Everyone tat God will use for his glory will pass through fire. Because it is the fire that purifies. In Mark 4 v 35 – 41 Jesus was in a boat, sleeping when the storm arose, the fact that Jesus is in your boat, does not mean there will be no storm, it only means the boat will never sink.
When you say all will be well, you are telling the devil, try your worse, it will be well. Let me hear someone says it will be well with me!. Why because there is someone called the prince of peace,
Once he is with you, you have nothing to worry about, almost all the people I have talked to almost a month now. Daddy, we are worried about Nigeria, we are worried about 2011, the prince of peace is with us, he has spoken he said” all will be well.
So first point, there is a prince of peace, second point, there is a restorer. There are thieve but physical and spiritual, they are part and parcel of life in John 10 v 10 Jesus Christ said the thieves cometh not but to steel, to kill and to destroy, but that God for ‘but’ I have come that you may have life and that you may have it more abundantly. The thief came to this woman and steals the only son she had in her old age, but there is a restorer. His name is Jesus! he can bring the dead back to life, he can restore everything the enemy have stolen from you. the only thing you must make sure that you are not the one opening the door for the thief, the devil is a thief, he wants to kill, he wants to destroy, don’t open the door to him, the only way you can open the door to him is by sinning, the bible says in John 8 v 44, he said he who sins is of the devil. If you are sinning, you belong to the devil and the devil is free to come in and grab whatever belong to him.
James 4 v7, says if you submit to God then you can resist the devil and he will flee from you. you must make up your mind this year; I will not corporate with the devil, once that is settle, all will be well, it doesn’t matter what the devil may be try, all will be well!
Again, this woman did something very interesting, she laid the child on the bed, the bed she made for the man of God, she was saying to God, ‘I have made deposit, it is time for withdrawal’, the child was interest on her investment, she didn’t ask for the child, the child came as an interest but now she is saying to the almighty God, time for withdrawal.
Point number three; have you a deposit with God? So that in the time of crises, you may say I want to withdrawal, because psalm 20 v 1- 3 says the Lord will remember your offerings in the day trouble. let’s not talk about casual offering, he is talking about those who have solid investment with God, take the example of Act 9 v 36 – 42 a woman called Dorcas died, and everybody said no! Not Dorcas! So they sent for Peter, when Peter came, they began to show Peter; look at the dress she made for me, she is the one feeding me, she is the who send my children to school, she is the one who this , she is the one who did that, no, no Dorcas can’t go.
God said okay Dorcas, go back, go and continue the good work you are doing. If you die today, how many people will miss you? There is a simple way of finding out, travel for one month, when you come back see how many people who says where have you been? If you go and you return and people just said good morning, you need to check because it means nobody missed you, it means if you die nobody is going to noticed
The Almighty God is healing now, there is somebody here, the pain around your waist, it is as if you are wearing a belt of fire, Almighty God said that is okay now, it is gone.
He also said there is someone here, you stomach disorder have become a concern to you, he ask me to tell you, he has taken care of that also.
He said there is someone here too, there is a very terrible liquid flowing from your inner ear, he asked me to tell you to check, it has already dried up.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said there will no longer be any limit to your promotion.
He said there is someone here tonight, long before this year is over, your joy will over flow.
I was a saying that there is a story in Act 27 13 -24 Paul was in a boat and there was a terrible storm, the storm was up for more than two weeks, they couldn’t even see the sun for about two weeks and Paul was there, an apostle, you will think an apostle will never experience that kind of storm, it got to a stage and the people felt the end has come , then an angel visited him and said Paul don’t worry you will be okay and because of you, everybody in the ship will be safe. God was saying to Paul, because of your credit with me, I will spare the life of all the people around you.
Can God look at you and say because of you, I will spare your family? Have you that kind of credit with God?
I remember some years ago, I have a friend who have been supportive in my ministry and I was praying and suddenly God said, son, your son is about to die in London, unless you go to him now, he will die within a week. Thank you Lord, quickly I got a ticket, got to London, when I saw my friend, I couldn’t even believe, but I prayed like God asked me to pray and that is more than fourteen years now, my friend is still alive. Why would God bother to tell me that somebody is about to die in London? Because he had a credit with God!
You better make up your mind brethren, that you will stop been a bench warmer in the house of God, this year should be the beginning of a new commitment to the service of God, So that if any crises should come, you will have a credit to withdraw from. You can’t just go to a bank and say you want to withdraw money when you have not deposited there.
I can give you other stories, I should go on but I believe the Lord wants me to impress this on somebody, I have another friend who have been very, very supportive, he had in his own ears in 1995 “go and put your house in order, because you are about to die” he heard it himself and then he told me, and I laughed. Why did I laugh? Because I know I can talk to my daddy and I said to my daddy “that man, I still need him here. He is very useful, I need him here” he is listening to me now, he is sitting on the altar, he has been around now sixteen years extra.
As many of you as determined saying from now on, I will serve this God, with all my heart, ‘every appointment with death, I cancel it in Jesus name’.
Point number four, watch your mouth! What is it that this woman said, ALL WILL BE WELL! she graduated from it to ALL IS WELL! She did not say, oh my head! Look at what the devil has done! No, No! Proverbs 18 v 21 says death and life are in the power of the tongue, Proverbs 6 v 2 he said your mouth can become a snare unto you. Numbers 19 v 28 God said, Moses, tell the children of Israel have they have spoken in my hears, that is what I will do to them. Those people say they couldn’t make It to the promise land, he says so shall it be. In Mark 11 v 23 -24 he said if you believe and you doubt not, you will say to the mountain, be thou remove, be thou cast into the sea and it shall be so, he said whatever you say when you pray, believe that you will receive and you shall have it. What you say is what you will have. Say it loud and clear, ‘IT SHALL BE WELL WITH ME’.
I have told you the story of those early days, when things were hard, and my wife and I will be struggling over “Ponmo”, (raincoat) ‘this one is too thick, you can’t eat that alone, let’s cut it into two. And I would tell her, she is here listening to me, things won’t continue like this, tomorrow is going to be alright. Thank God today it is alright, tomorrow is going to be better. Say it loud to everybody beside you ‘my tomorrow will be alright’. When you hear people say trouble is coming answer them, ALL WILL BE WELL. Oh Nigeria is going to burn; tell them ALL WILL BE WELL.
It doesn’t matter what anybody may say, it is what you say, what God hears from you that will determine your future. Say it loud and clear, my tomorrow will be alright.
Which brings me to point number five, many of you, you listen to newspaper reporter, wonderful people, prophet in their own right, you listen to economist; wonderful people, prophet in their own right, at time you even listen to Doctors; wonderful people, highly educated, prophet in their own right, but why don’t you learn to prophecy to yourself, that is what this woman did, she prophecy to herself, all will be well. He didn’t even wait for Elisha to say it.
Many people don’t know, may be those of you who are old and close to me will know, when I wake up in the morning, I stand before my mirror, I will be saying’ Adeboye it is going to be well with you today, you are going to find favor today… everyplace where you go today, you will find favor with God, you will find favor with men, God will go with you, you will go in peace, you will return in peace, you won’t fail, you are not going to fall.
If you know the number of people that want you to die last year, thank God for his mercy, if you know those people who hate you because makes you to progress, thank God for God’s mercy. I mean I remember a time when some workers misbehaved and I disciplined them and a news paper wrote it “THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR THE REDEMMED CHRISITIAN CHURCH OF GOD” I said the devil is a liar, you haven’t seen anything yet, and things are just about to start. I want you to use two minutes and prophecy to yourself mention your name, say it is going to be well with you, you are not going to fail, you are going to live, you are not going to die, you are going to do the work of God,
So shall it be in Jesus name.
When you read Mark 5v 24- 34, the woman with the issue of blood, prophesied to herself, if I can just touch the helm of the garment of Jesus, I will be made whole. She said it to herself and it came to past.Joel 3 v 10, says let the weak say I am strong. Prophesy strength to yourself, it is acceptable to God, say I refuse to die poor, I refuse to die this year, I refuse to be a failure, I will reach my goal.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, The Lord said the prison door is opened, your yokes are destroyed, he said enjoy your freedom.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; he says I will bring a new honeymoon to your marriage.
He said there is someone here tonight; he said your deliverance will come from unexpected sources.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said you been expecting my visitation, he said he is already at your door.
My father in the Lord told me this story, two men went to the oracle and the oracle man said ‘ah you are a king, and you, you are a servant. So they left the oracle man, the one the oracle said he is a king was going home rejoicing, got home sat down and began to enjoy himself. The second one said “what have I done? Why must I be a servant?” After some time he took a decision, got himself two cutlasses, sharpened them very well, collected all the food items he could find, yam maize, everything, and went far into the jungle, into a no man’s land and then he began to work. As he began to cut the bush, he kept on saying to himself ‘I will not be a servant’, ‘I will not be servant’, and he began to plant and he was harvesting and storing.
In the meantime, a big famine broke out in the town he left behind, and one day a hunter was going in the bush and came to the man farm and saw all the food and the hunter ran back to the town, told the people of the town, ‘ I have found food! so the town people came, met this farmer, please give us food, we are about to die, we will make you our king, he said then you can come, there is plenty of food, so the one they say will be a servant became a king. One day the one who have been sitting down at home, calling himself majesty one day, when hunger want s to kill him, he practically crawl to the place and say please give me food, I will be your servant.
The oracle may be wrong but your mouth will decide! I will not die a servant, it will be well with me, I will reach my goal, you can’t quarrel with me over that, I am talking about myself.
That brings me to point six, when this woman needed help, she cried for it persistently, because when she got to the man of God, she grabbed him by the feet. Sir did I beg you for a child? Didn’t I tell you not to deceive me? You brought joy into my life, are you going to seat down and allow the devil to take that joy away? The man of God said’ my servant, go and lay my stick on the child. The woman said man of God, it was not your servant who spoke to me, it wasn’t your servant I built a house for, it wasn’t your servant that I made a bed for, I have no business with your servant, am not leaving you until you follow me.
Somebody is going to hold on to Jesus tonight and the answer to your prayer will come tonight in Jesus name.
2king 4 v 1 – 7 tells you the story of a woman, she happened to be widow of the son of the prophets and she was in dying in debt and she kept quiet, she kept quiet and God kept quiet. The reason why many of us are still in trouble is because we kept quiet. Some of us are too sophisticated to cry to God, when it is time to pray, we want to pray like ladies and gentlemen, “don’t you know who I am?” A professor! A high chief! A CEO! Does the devil know your degree? Cancer is not interested in titles, does he knows the difference between a king and a messenger, when it is time to pray, it is to the time for show off.
I was going on a prayer walk, it was at night, I didn’t know that anybody else was around, and there was something that I needed to really settle with God and I knew this is not a joking matter anymore, so I lay prostrate on the road and one fellow came upon me there and he said ha daddy! What is your business? Who is daddy? When trouble comes, does trouble knows daddy from mummy?
God will answer somebody here tonight!
We have wasted enough time praying ‘jenlege’ (gentle) prayer. Tonight we are going to pray, and God is going to answer. I say I prophesy God will answer tonight.
In Luke 11 v 9 -10 when he asked you to ask and you shall be given, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be open unto you, it didn’t tell you for how long you are to ask, keep asking until you get, keep seeking until you find, keep knocking until the door is open, God is in, he never travels, he said ask till your joy be full John 16 v 24.
Stop asking when your joy is full, although if I were like you, since he could anoint my head with oil until my cups runs over, even when my joy is full I will ask for more. He has never said I can’t do more for you, it is you who stop shut, but things will change tonight
Let me conclude, point number seven,’ ‘ALL IS WELL THAT ENDS WELL’, when you go through the scriptures, you will see a lot of examples, of people who have problems, massive problems, but at the end it ended well, what it is important is how does it end? Mark 2 v 1 – 12 tells us the story of a man who was paralyzed from neck downwards. Four people carried him because the paralysis made him extra heavy but he walked out f the place. I prophesy to somebody here tonight, those of you who are paralyzed by problems, long before the end of this month, you will sing all is well.
Mark 5 v 1 – 20 the mad man of Gadarenes, people can’t be madder than that man, but he ended up an evangelist, it ended well. In that name that is above every other name, I decree to someone here tonight; the whole world might have written you off but all will be well. In Luke 7 v 11 -15 you know the story of the widow, she had only one son and the one son died, she was happy ones; she was happy the day she got married, she was happy the day she got the son, then the enemy moved in, killed the husband and then kill the son, but then Jesus stepped in, a journey to sorrow became a journey to joy. In the name of the one who called me, those of you who have become used to sorrow, from now on you shall weep no more.
When you read the story in John 5 v 2-14 the fellow has been sick for thirty eight years completely forsaken by friends, forsaken by relatives, a hopeless situation, but when Jesus came into the scene, all was well. I don’t care how long you have been sick, in that name that is above every other name, very soon you will stand on this altar you will testify, ‘that all is well’.
Let me give you one more example in John 11 v 13 – 44 even the sister of Lazarus said it is already too late, but when Jesus step into the situation, all was well. Even if they have told you that it is already too late for you, in the mighty name of Jesus, you will laugh last.
Storms never give notice, when that woman woke up that morning, she bath her child, the child had no temperature, gave the child food. A sick will not say I want to go and meet his father at the farm, the child was not bitten by snake, there was no thunderbolt, all of a sudden, they heard my head, my head, when they were thinking it was headache, before they knew it the child was dead all within hours.
Storms don’t give notice! That is why I am begging you, you never know when you will have call to God in a hurry, that is why you must keep the road between you and him clean and clear. That is why you need to restitute your ways, you can never tell when you will need him in a hurry that is why you must not allow sin to remain on your life, because he says if I regard inequity in my heart God will not hear me. that is why you must pay all your vow hurriedly because Psalm 50 v 14 -15 says come to his presence with thanks giving, pay all your vows then call upon me in the day of troubles, he say I will answer you. Keep the road clean.
If you look at the fire station, they don’t allow any car to pass in the front of the place, because they never can tell when they will be called, if they hear come, come and there is a car blocking the way, while they are looking for the driver, a house can burn down.
One of my daughter was travelling to the east, it was when they just finished the way between Shagamu and Benin, beautiful road then and there was this Peugeot station wagon, the one with three seat, my daughter was sitting at the back seat, reading her bible, the driver was speeding because the road was clean and clear, suddenly the front tire burst. That was not the time when you say God forgive me my sins, I should have forgiven that fellow that offended me. One moment the car was speeding there was a sound the next moment, the car begun to summer sort. She was reading her bible, suddenly the door on the other side opened, hands that she couldn’t see picked her up from the back seat, passed her through the door, set her gently by the side of the road and she sat down watching the car somersaulting. By the time everybody came, of course there was nothing left in the car, it was a complete write off plus the people inside, she got up from where those big hands laid her and went towards the people and said I was in that car, they said it can’t be, she said that is my bible, this is my name, get that bible and see the name there. You never can tell when you will need God in a hurry, when she heard that explosion, only one word came out of her mouth JESUS!
I tell you another story, true story! Some of my children boys, they were going to Ekiti pupa to hold a crusade several years ago, they passed Ore, suddenly armed robbers way laid them, kicked one and he fell, when he fell he raised a dagger and was about to bring the dagger down, that young man said, in that moment of time, I suddenly remember every sermon you have preached, all the time you have been saying be holy , be holy I suddenly remembered, it was as if time was suspended, so I said deep within me, I said God from now I will live holy, that was going on inside him, but only one word came out Jesus! And the hand of the armed robber was suspended.
You don’t know when you will need Him. If you want to give your life to Jesus, come now, he is willing to save your soul, the blood is still available, he washes cleaner than snow, and if you are a backslider, still leaving in sin and you want to come back o God, No more sin, I want to live holy for you, you can come forward . As you come begin to call on the Almighty God, ask him to save your soul, ask him to be merciful unto you, that is blood will clean you from all your sin, that you will serve him for the rest of your life…

PRAYER FOR THOSE BORN IN JANUARY
Father Almighty, i want to thank you for your children born in the month of January.
January is the first month of the year and so for all these your children, I’m asking this year for first time miracles in Jesus name.
Blessings that will be first of its kind send to them in Jesus name.
Testimonies that will be first of its kind give to them in Jesus name and in every area of their lives, let them be first, when it comes to serving you let them be first. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen.
By the grace of God the February Holy Ghost service will be a very special one.
The theme is wonderful.
Now let me tell you one thing before we begin; after everybody had prayed during the Congress and the New Year service and of course I was praying for everybody.
I was finally left alone with my God and I said Lord thank You for the Congress. Thank You for the year that is gone by, thank You for everybody who came that they returned safely.
I said it is now my turn, me too I want to ask for a New Year present. My Daddy says “go ahead!” I said “Daddy what I want to ask is big, but am bold to ask because I know that You know even before I ask.
I said in the Redeemed Christian church of God in the year 2013, I want at least one million three hundred thousand healings”.
I am happy to tell you that my Daddy told me, request granted.
And so it will be your fault, not mine, not God’s if you miss any Holy Ghost Service this year, because He reminded me that the Holy Ghost service started when I made a similar request, way back in 1986.
At that time I asked Him for a miracle for every member of the congregation and He said bring them together and I will do what you asked.
That was the beginning of the Holy Ghost Service.
And somehow it kept on going and going. Now He has promised me every Holy Ghost night there will be massive healings.
So if you seat down at home don’t blame me, I know God is able to heal everywhere but tonight is going to be different, so there is no need for me to hurry. I will remind you of two testimonies.
The elders here will remember one; there was these bank manager, he was a bank manager in one of the town in Ogun state.
Suddenly he ran mad, I mean completely mad, so they called the police, they handcuffed him and they chained his legs, they were taking him to Arrow (Asylum).
And in his madness he said one thing, please take me to Redemption Camp, because i know if my feet touches that ground, I know I will be well. He was mad but in His madness, he made that request.
And they brought him here, I was alone on the Camp ground when they arrived. And they told me what he said. If I remembered correctly I think there were either four or six police men that were with him. He was wild!
I said if that was what he said, “loose him and let him come down”.
They say ah! We knew what we went through before we captured him. I said but you heard what he said?
Thank God the Bible says it shall be unto you according to your faith. They said “Sir, if we lose him, whatever happened you will be responsible”.
I said “loose him”. They removed his handcuff, they removed his chain, he stepped on this ground and instantly he became sane.
That is one example, you see there are grounds and there are grounds, this is holy ground.
I will tell you another true story, testimony you’ve heard of a woman, she is probably in the crowd.
She went abroad to either London or America to take care of her grand children and there she suffered a stroke and she told the children.
“Take me back to Nigeria” and they said to her “people who have your problem, if they have the money they want to come abroad for treatment”.
She said “if I can get to the Redemption Camp, I will be made whole” They said well, if that is what you want. They brought her here.
As soon as she landed on the Camp Ground, because she said just take me there, that was all.
As soon as she landed, every traces of stroke disappeared.
On this ground this year, there will be Signs and Wonders. If you like seat down at home don’t say I didn’t tell you, but it is up to you.
Philippians 2 v 9 -11 Wherefore, God has also has highly exalted Him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things in earth, of things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the father.
What is in a name?
Everything! Your future is bound up in your name; everything that is likely to happen to you is embedded in that name.
Moses was called Moses according to Exodus 2 because he was drawn out of water.
For the rest of his life; water kept on pursuing him. He changed water to blood in Exodus chapter 7, he parted the red sea in Exodus chapter 14, he turned bitter sweet in Exodus chapter 15, He brought water out of the rock in Exodus chapter 17 and when he failed to get to the promise land it is because of water In Numbers 20, water kept following him.
The Almighty God knows the important of name so much that on several occasions, He had to change the names of some people for their destiny to be fulfilled.
Genesis 17 v 1 -9 He changed Abram to Abraham, barren man to father of nations. He changed Sarai to Sarah Exodus 17 v 15-16 barren woman to princess, mother of nations. Genesis 32v 24-26 he changed Jacob to Israel; he changed a man to a nation!
Listen to me very carefully, find out the full meaning of your name and if there is a need, change that name now. If your name means Satan has received this (Esubiyi) changed the name to the Lord has received this (Jesu biyi) get away from Satan.
What is in a name?
My mother told me that when she was going to see the priest concerning my baptismal name, the name she had in mind was Elisha.
But when she got to the man, she had forgotten, so she said Enoch. I said no problem I will keep the two; Elisha double portion anointing, Enoch the man that work with God.
You want to know my full name? I will tell you today, but before I tell you my full name, do you know I was born on a Sunday?
Don’t let anybody deceive you all these people who are older than seventy, they don’t know their birthday.
They just chose one. Nobody wrote down names in those days, nobody wrote down birthdays. They just chose one, because you have to give a name in the school, official birthday.
So I asked my mother, when was I born?
She said the year that so and so King mounted the throne in Ilesha.
I said okay I know that one that was in 1942.
I said what month?
She said how do I know? But she said I can tell you one thing, it is a Sunday.
She said I know it is Sunday because they are celebrating something in the church and so everybody left and I was alone in the house.
So I delivered you alone.
What else can you tell me about that Sunday?
She said it was a very strange Sunday.
The rain was falling and the sun was shining, which is an indication in our area that a Tiger was being born.
You may think I am joking, ask my elder sisters they are still alive, they will tell you one of my nick name is the Tiger, do I look like a tiger to you now.
But if you want to hear my full name, you will find that the full name should be something like
Enoch, Elisha, Sunday, Adejare, Adetona, Olagundoye, Adeboye alias the Tiger. There is one alias I won’t tell you, that one is reserved for my wife.
And when I was preparing the sermon and I felt the Holy Spirit saying write this down. And I said this is going to be funny. He said just go ahead and do what I tell you, He said when you finish, tell my children this will be a year of laughter.
So what is in your name?
Check if there is any evil one reject it and if there is a good one you want, add and God will say Amen.
Jesus loves names.
He has many names. In John 10 v 7 He said I am the Door, in John 10 v 11 He says I am the Good Shepherd.
In John 11 v 25 He said I am the Resurrection and the Life. In John 14 v 6 He says I am the Way the Truth and the Life.
In Isaiah 9 v 6, His Father called Him Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of peace.
In Revelation chapter 1 v 8 He said I am the Alpha, the Omega, the Beginning, the Ending, the One who is, the One who was, the One who is to come, the Almighty.
Eight names at a stretch and each names is significant, don’t think He was just compiling names, and there are many, many more of His names.
And because there was no way we would have finished, that is why we want t talk about the
WONDERS OF HIS NAME.
And because there is no way we would have finished that is why he has asked us to talk about one special name next month and that is WONDERFUL, and I am sure some people will see wonders next month.
His name guarantees deliverance.
He said in my name you will cast out demons, Mark 16 v17. His name guarantees healings Mark 16 v 18, His name guarantee freedom, John 8 v 36 whosoever the Son shall set free shall be free indeed.
His name guarantees joy John 16 v 24, His name guarantee peace Isaiah 9 v 6, His name guaranteed promotion, John 12 v 32, His name guarantees victory; at the mention of His name all knees, including the enemies knees shall bow.
His name guarantees rest, Matthew 11 v 28-30. His name guarantees satisfaction John 7v 37-39, His name guarantees answer to all your questions, to all your prayers, John 14 v 14.
But tonight we want to look within a short period of time at just a few of these names, the one in John 14 v 6 He said I am the Way, the Truth and the life.
What does He mean by I am the Way?
If you are in a town and you want to go to another town that you don’t know, you will ask people what is the way out of these town to where am going?
Jesus is the Way out of sickness, Mark 16 v 17-18, in My name you will lay hand on the sick they will recover.
In Act 9 v 32-35 Bibles tells us of a man called Anias. Anias was sick, Peter went into his room and said Anias, Jesus has made the whole. And immediately the man came out of sickness.
In the name that is above every other name, tonight someone will come out of sickness.
His name is the way out of death, in Matthew 10 v 5- 8 He told the disciples to go out, preach the gospel, heal the sick, cleanse lepers, raised the dead.
In Act 9 v 36 – 42, in the example that somebody mentioned among those who have spoken before me, example of Dorcas. Dorcas had died, Peter turned to her and said Dorcas, in the name of Jesus, come back to life and she rose.
Thank you my Father and my God, Daddy said we will start the New Year, with seventy thousand healing tonight.
Jesus is the name out of death.
I have told you the story of one occasion when I went to visit a man. I got there just to pray for the family and be on my way.
And the wife was carrying a baby on her back and they said this baby will not allow anybody else to carry her except the mother.
But as I walked into the house, the child stretched from the back of the mother, the child stretch violently towards me that if I didn’t catch her she probably would have fallen down.
And I was just wondering why? Well since the child was already in my hand, I prayed for her in the name of Jesus.
Few months later, the mother was confessing; nobody knew that the mother was a witch; the mother said that was the day she was going to kill the girl, but the girl sees death and seeing the representation of Jesus, stretched out and her appointment with death was cancelled.
Any appointment with death concerning you is cancelled today in Jesus name.
Thank you my Father, Daddy asked me to tell someone, He said you will remember this year as the year God begins to favor you.
Jesus is the way out of embarrassment, John 2 v 1 – 11.
There was a wedding in Cana of Galilee and they ran out of wine, and they find themselves in a big embarrassment.
They invited the guests and the guests were seated and long before the feast was over, there was no more wine.
But thank God Jesus was there, and they went to Jesus and He brought them out of their embarrassment.
Every embarrassing situation in your life, you are coming out in Jesus name.
So He is the way out of sickness. Out of death and out of embarrassment.
He is also the way into, just as there is a way out of, there is the way into; He is also the way into; He is the way into the presence of God.
John 14 v 6 He said I am the Way the Truth and the Life, no man cometh to the Father, except by Me.
You want to come into the presence of God? You come by Jesus. And because He is the Way into the presence of God, He is the way onto fullness of Joy.
Psalm 16 v 11, the Bible says in the presence of God, there is the fullness of joy. It takes Jesus to bring you into the fullness of joy.
Hebrew 10 v 19 tells us that we can now go boldly into the holiest by the blood of Jesus.
I think I was telling those of you who are here for the watch night service and by the way if you are not here for the watch night service, I want to encourage you, get the tape.
The Holy Communion service was first of its kind. The cross over service was first of its kind, get the tape, both will bless you; get more than one so you can give your friends as New Year gift.
So I was telling them, I said anytime I had to visit head of states and I have visited for quite a few of them.
The first time I visited the head of state of Gambia; security check one, security check two, security check three, then you get to general reception, another check, you get to another general reception, another check, then you get to the presence of the president.
I said it is easier to get into the presence of God.
And it is not Gambia alone, Nigeria too; if you have ever been to Aso Rock find out; they will check you gate one, check you gate two, check you gate three, the people in gate three will be watching you as they are checking you in gate two, they will still check you and that is long before you get close to the entrance of the house and they check again, then another check.
Thank God all I need to do to get into His presence is to say in the name of Jesus. Do I hear somebody shout Jesus!
He is the way out of sickness, death, embarrassment, He is the way into the presence of the Almighty God and He is the way forward.
When everything seems to be stagnant with you, call the name. Suddenly progress will come!
In Act 3 v 1 -8 that lame man had been stagnant for forty years, Peter said to him, silver and gold have I none, but what I have I give unto you in the name of Jesus, rise up and walk, and the man who have been stagnant for forty years, got up, began to walk, began to leap, he began to praise God. When you call that name progress begins.
In John 5 v 2-9 a man have been sick for thirty eight years on one spot; he has been stagnant for thirty eighth years. The moment Jesus arrived everything changed.
I am believing God for all those whose promotions has been delayed, this year your promotion shall be accelerated.
Thank you my Daddy, the Lord said there is someone here special, He ask me to tell you, He said I promise you, that this year your waiting will be over.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said towards the end of last year you did something special for Him, He said this year you will see the abundance evidence of His gratitude.
He is the Way out of, the Way into, the Way forward and He is the Way where there is no way.
In Exodus 14 v 1- 28 when the children of Israel got to the red sea and they couldn’t go forward, but they looked back and saw Pharaoh and his host pursuing them and they began to cry.
Moses cried to God, and God said why are you crying to me? Tell the Children of Israel to move forward, Moses said move forward? There is a sea there Lord! He said “I will show you I can make way where there is no way.
I prophesy to someone here tonight, everywhere where there say there is no way; there will be a way for you.
In Act 12 v 5- 11 Peter was in prison, the doors were locked securely, guards were outside but the enemies were not satisfied they still tied him to two soldiers, one on the right, one on the left with chains, to make sure that there will be no way of escape.
They were so sure they got this one. But Jesus made a Way where there is no way.
In the name that is above every other name, in the wonderful name of Jesus, all those who say they have captured you shall be disappointed.
Let me hear you shout Jesus one more time.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He says your showers of blessings will begin this month and grow bigger and bigger and bigger.
He is the Way out of, the Way into, the Way forward, the Way where there is no way and He is the Way upward.
In John 12 v 32 Jesus Christ said if I be lifted up, I will draw all men to Me. As you lift up Jesus, He will draw you up. That is promotion!
In Luke 5 v 8-11, He promoted a fisher man called Peter, a failure! He promoted him so much that anywhere you go in the world today, you will hear the name Peter, you see houses upon houses built for Peter, Peter’s cathedral, Peter Basilica, Peter’s this. Peter’s that.
In that wonderful name of Jesus, you too would be promoted.
He is the Way upward; He can pick up a beggar from the dunghill and keep lifting him up until he begins to sit down among princes.
I have told you before, if man is the one that promoted you, the same fellow who promoted you will bring you down.
That is why I always pity some people that I see who love press men; you want to get press men to write beautiful article about you, so you can become popular, one day the same people, who wrote the beautiful articles about you, they are the one who will write the one that will damage you.
If man lifts you up, number one you go as high as his hand can lift you and after sometime when his hand is tired you begin to come down, but my Father’s hands are everlasting, when He lifts you up, you just keep going higher and higher.
Daddy says that there is someone here tonight; He says I should tell you, all traffic lights are green. And He says He will keep them so for a long time.
God says there is someone here tonight; He said in less than three years, your level will change from a stream to an ocean.
He is the Way out of, the Way into, the Way forward, the Way where there is no way and He is the Way upward and He is the only Way.
Act 4 v 12 says there is no other name, even among men whereby men shall be saved. Mathew 1 v 21 says you shall call His name Jesus for He shall save his people.
When you have prayed and you don’t even know what to say anymore, just keep on saying; Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!
I think it was during the watch night service that I also mentioned this; I was in far away Indonesia last year for a prayer conference and I was ask to speak on prayer.
I told the great men of God all over the world gathered over there, I said God answers prayers, they said does He answer all the time? I said He answer prayers all the time.
I said the only reason you have said that He didn’t answer your prayer at certain times is because you stop praying.
You got tired because you have alternatives. People like me I have no alternatives, Jesus is my last bus stop.
if a member of the congregation has a problem and he thinks he cannot handle it on his own, he report to the pastor, when the pastor cannot handle it, he refers it to the general overseer, when the general overseer has a problem where can he go?
I have no alternative; I have nowhere else to go and because there is no where I am going and He knows am not moving.
Jacob said, if God does not answer my prayer now, Esau will kill me tomorrow morning, so when God says let Me go, he said ah! Go where? I will not let you go, unless You settle my case.
How many of you want your case settle tonight, how many of you are going to hold on to Jesus, until He settle your case?
Let me hear you say amen loud and clear.
He is the Way, He is the Truth, John 8 v 32 says you shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free, when you know Jesus, freedom comes. John 8 v 36, whomsoever the Son shall set free shall be free indeed.
I have told you the story before, my father had a disagreement with his peers, in my village compound in 1960, and they told him because the disagreement has to do with me, I was in my final year in the secondary school then, he said to them, I will do what you say but please let this my son finish his education.
And they told him point blank, so it is because of this boy you won’t join us? You will see how old that boy will be before he dies, they told him in the family meeting.
He came home and told my mother and I ran and for thirteen years I was running, then I met Jesus, and now the when the forces of darkness see me coming, they run, they run because of Jesus.
Are there witches and wizards in your family? Face them with Jesus.
Are there herbalists who say they have already destroyed your future? Face them with Jesus.
Is there anyone in power, no matter how powerful, who says he is going to destroy you? Face him with Jesus.
Is there any mountain that has refused to move all these years? Face it with Jesus.
Because whomsoever the Son shall set free shall be free indeed.
The mad man of Gedaren has six thousand demons in him, one word from Jesus, one word from the Truth and he was free.
The devil is a liar, and he has kept many of us in bondage for a long time. Thank God the Truth has come.
Do you know for a long time it was taught and believed that anyone who wants to go to heaven must be poor? They said because it is said that the love of money is the root of all evil.
The devil knows how to quote the Bible, he quotes it in a way that many of you, if you don’t study the word completely you won’t know the difference.
It is not money that God says is evil, He says it is the love of money.
Without money how can we ever have built this auditorium?
Just imagine think of all the kilometer of steel in this place, heavy duty steel all the way from China. Think of all the tons upon tons of cement that have gone into the foundation, not to talk of electricity, not to talk of amplifier and we are not even as good as we want to be yet.
But the devil wants you to believe a lie, you can be the poorest man in the world, if you are not born again you will still go to hell, and you can be the richest man in the world provided you live holy, you will make it to heaven.
He said I wish above all things that you prosper and be in health as you soul prosper.
It is when you want money to such an extent that you are ready to sacrifice your salvation for money then you are in trouble.
Because in the story of the rich young ruler Luke 18 v 18 – 30 the young ruler, came to Jesus and said “sir, what must I do to make it to heaven?
The Lord said oh you know the laws, do this, do this, he said I have been doing all that.
Jesus Christ said only one thing remain, He said go and sell all you have, give to the poor, come and follow me.
Because Jesus knew this man loves money more than salvation, it was a test.
He said keep your salvation and I will keep my money.
That is why Jesus said poor fellow, he can’t even make it to heaven, some people love money so much that they will steal, some people love money so much that they will defraud, some people love money so much that they will inflate the cost of materials; those people are in trouble, because no liar will make it to heaven.
But my God does not want you to die poor, He said I have come for you to have life and have it more abundantly, He said I am the Truth.
I have seen some things, I have told my pastors, I have seen an airport, very big airport, and I have seen several planes packed there and each one has the symbol of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
Your own is there. So those who say you are going to die poor tell them they are lying, we will serve the Lord in holiness, in purity, we will not lie, we will not cheat, we will not steal and we shall prosper.
Whether the devil likes or not we shall reach the top.
Then the Truth.
Let me just one more thing about the Truth.
Do you know there is an organization that says you must not mention the blood of Jesus?
Don’t talk about the blood! And there are some very intelligent people who belong to that organization.
I won’t mention names. I was talking to one of them, I said sir, it is written in Hebrews 9 v 22 without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin.
I said who do you think is afraid of the blood of Jesus?
Only one fellow, that is the devil.
Rev. 12 v 11 said they overcame the devil by the blood of the lamb. The only one who says don’t mention the blood is the devil.
I said the organization you belong to might be connected to the devil, he doesn’t like the Truth but that is the Truth cleanses from all sins. It gives victory over Satan.
Let me hear somebody say the blood of Jesus.
The Way the Truth.
Let me say one thing about the truth as it concern grace.
Salvation is free, it’s by grace, Ephesians 2 v 9 says it is by grace you are saved not of works, lest any man should boast.
Salvation is free, but after you are saved, after all your sins are forgiven, it will be falsehood to say I can now live like a child of the devil and make it to heaven.
That is a lie. Romans 6 v 1 -2 says can we continue in sin and expect grace to abound, God forbid.
We all know that God is love, I know that 1John 4 v 4 -8 makes it clear, God is love.
And if anybody knows about the love of God, please look at me very well, I am a living example of the love of God, He loves me, that is why I call him Daddy, not everybody can call Him Daddy.
Even Christians calls Him Father, but few of us can call Him Daddy and He is my Daddy.
I know Him, He loves me. But I also know Him, He loves me, I also know according to Hebrew 12 v 29 that this my God.
This Daddy, this God who is Lord is also a consuming fire, you don’t mess with Him, if you mess with Him, he will deal with you. I know!
I have told you the story before. several years ago, I have this little camp ground in Epe.
We want to prepare a little place for workers meeting, so we need toilet, so I got a surveyor to take the contract, to build two big latrines, one for men, one for women, at that time we are still using feet, 6 feet deep, each one and we negotiated how much, he asked me to show him the place.
So I took him to the place, when he began to measure, instead of measuring sixty feet, he measure sixty meters and God spoke to me and said son correct him!
I said no! If he is a surveyor and he doesn’t know the difference between feet and meter let him suffer for it.
We went to the second place he began to measure in meter instead of feet, Daddy spoke to me, son correct him.
And I said no! Which university did he go to?
After he finished measuring there is this hefty Hausa man who was one of the diggers that was helping him to dig.
And if you have ever see these diggers you will know what I am talking about, he saw me and smiled at me and said Megidda.
I want to be a nice fellow, so I stretched out my hand to receive his hand, and he grabbed my hand and he began to crush it, and I am telling you the hand of this digger is like iron, he was crushing my hand and he was smiling, the pain was horrible, I had to cry out to God, Father help!
It is not a joking matter you can laugh it is not your hand!
And Daddy replied me immediately and said
“I told you to correct him! I said “I will, I will”.
And the man released my hand.
So I called the surveyor corrected him but in the main time my hand was burning like fire.
As I was going to my car I was grumbling Daddy this punishment is too much.
He said, I will not tolerate any nonsense from you.
That is the truth, God is love, that is the truth, but He is also the consuming fire.
And you shall know the Truth and the Truth will set you free.
If you think you can mess around with God you are in for a surprise. Wonderful God, beautiful God but He is the God of grace, but don’t abuse that grace.
He said I am the Way the Truth and the Life!
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said I have parted your red sea there is no going back now.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said a new wave of anointing will envelop you this year.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said very soon you will be singing:
I have joy like the ocean, in my soul,
I have joy, joy like the ocean,
Joy like the ocean in my soul.
Then He said I am the Life.
John 3 v 36 says anyone who believes on the Lord Jesus, will have everlasting life, but anyone who will not believe in Him will not even see life, He said but the Judgment of God will be upon Him.
I’m going to give opportunity to those of you who have not given your life to Jesus to do so now.
Thank you Father, one more word for him, for me and for many of us here; Daddy says when it is rained dry grass becomes green, He said there is someone here He said I will rain on you.
If you have not given your life to Jesus please do so tonight.
If you have been pretending to be born again, change your mind, come and give your life to Jesus Christ, without Jesus Christ it will be difficult to survive this year.
But with Jesus Christ, others may be weeping you will be laughing, this will be a glorious year for those who have Jesus.
If you have not surrendered your life to Jesus come and do so now.
Give your life to Him. He will forgive you all your sins,
So if you want to give your life to Jesus, come and stand before me now.
And as you come, begin to talk to Jesus, ask Him to have mercy on you, ask Him to save your soul, ask Him to forgive you your sins, ask him to save your soul, promise Him that from now on you will serve Him, He will be your Lord and savior.
The rest of us, let’s stretch our hands towards these people and begin to pray for them, let’s intercede for them, that the Almighty God, the savior will have mercy upon them.
In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Savior I want to bless Your Holy name for your word that has gone forth tonight.
Thank You for these your children that have come forward to surrender their lives to You, everyone of them receive in Jesus name.
Forgive in Jesus name, let Your blood wipe away all their sins in Jesus name, save their souls and write their names in the book of life in Jesus name. From now on, any time they call on You, please answer them in Jesus name.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
I want to rejoice for those of you who have come forward tonight, I want to assure you that by the special grace of God I will be praying for you, so I am going to need your name, your address and your prayer request so I can know how to pray for you. Please drop these here at www.rccg.org

1 king 18 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 the Carmel, and he cast himself upon the earth, and he put his face between his knees. And said to his servant, go up now and 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 times 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 the rain stops thee not. And he came to pass, that in the mean while that the heaven was black with clouds and winds and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode and went to Jezreel.
When we talk about hope rising, we are talking about an incidence happening, that show that at long last, the tide is beginning to turn. That a blessing or a breakthrough or a miracle is at hand. In 1 Samuel 1 v 9 – 18 Hannah who have been going to Shiloh all this years and have been praying and praying and nothing had happened, but on a particular day, a man of God noticed her and thought that she was drunk, began to speak to her and she explained herself and the man of God said go in peace, may the Lord God of Israel grant your petition. From that moment onward, Hannah knew the tide had turned. Hope began to rise in her and the bible says she was no longer sad. She wasn’t pregnant in the church there, abut something had happened, an incident had happened, that told her clearly that the tide has started to turn.
There is somebody here tonight, even as you are listening, something will happen that the tide has started to turn for you.
In Mark 10 v 46- 52 Bartimeus have been sitting by the way side, begging for a long time but one day, Jesus was passing by. He began to cry, Jesus thou son of David have mercy on me, they tried to stop him…. Suddenly he heard a sound, “be of good cheer, he calleth thee”. Bartimeus eyes were not opened but he threw away his garment because something within him told him, at long last, the tide is turning, at long last the miracle you are hoping for is about to happen, at long last that garment of shame that you have been wearing forty year, you won’t have to wear it again.
An incident happened that told Bartimeus, my day has come and the hope in him began to rise. I believe there is someone one here tonight, the most high God is going to pay special attention to you.
In Act 3 v 1 – 8, that Lay man by the beautiful gate of the temple, have been there begging all these day, but one day came, he saw two men; Peter and John, passing by and as usual he begged for harm, but then something happened, suddenly these two men, passed him by because they had no money, but then they came and they said look on us. From the moment they say look on us, hope began to rise in him, well he thought he was going to get a big offering, but what he got was much more than he bargained for. When they say look on us and joy leapt up in his heart and hope in him began to rise, he wasn’t walking yet, he wasn’t leaping yet, but hope rose and before long, what started as a little hope became a mighty miracle. Am believing God with someone here tonight, that you are not going to see a man, you are going to see Jesus himself and very soon you will be walking, you will be leaping.
Now in the text that we read, we just want to use that as a case study; there have been no rain for more than three years, but suddenly Elijah said, “I have heard the sound of abundance of rain”. When he said that, there was no cloud, no wind was blowing, everything was as before. But he said he heard something and the one who said he heard something happened to be a prophet of God, but after he said he had something, he did something very strange, he went to the top of the mountain, fell on his face and put his face between his thigh, because he didn’t want to look at circumstances, he just wanted to live by faith and he began to cry to God, somebody is going to cry to God tonight and God is going to answer you.
Then he told his servant, servant, I am not going to look up, so you have to help me, go to the sea, tell me what you see there. The boy went and came back first time he said there is nothing there sir, he said go back and he continued to pray, came back second time, there is nothing there sir, the boy kept going, then the seventh time, the boy said I saw something, “a cloud, that is so small it just about the size of a man’s hand” but it was rising! Elijah said ha, glory be to God.
There is somebody here today, by the time you live in the morning. Your song will be all is well.
Let us look at that story very quickly, first of all the man of God heard something, Amos 3 v 7 says our God will not do anything without revealing to his servant the prophet first. In Revelation 2 v 7 says he who has ear to ear, let him ear what the spirit is saying to the church. Because the bible makes it clear that it is not everybody who has earring ear. The man of God heard something, by the grace of God at the beginning of this year I heard something.
And number two, after the man of God heard something, he said what he heard, he announced what he heard, he prophesied what he heard. At a time when everything looked dried and bleak, he said he heard the sound of abundance of rain. Amos 3 v 8 says when the lion roars who will not be afraid, when God has spoken who will not prophecy. I told you at the beginning of this year, it doesn’t matter what may be happening, all will be well! How many of you heard that one? How many of you believed it? I can assure you all will be well.
2 Peter 1 v 21 says that men of God spoke as they are moved by the spirit of God and 2 Chronicle 20 v 20says if you believe God you will be establish, if you believe his prophet you will prosper. How many of you believe all will be well? If you believe let me hear you shout another halleluiah!
A man of God heard something and he spoke it out, prophecy it. I can assure you I heard from God that beginning from February year 2011 hope will begin to rise.
So Elijah heard and he prophesied, but then intense prayer follows. Why must he pray? He already heard, he knew what he heard, he had been hearing from God for a long time, so why is he praying again? Why must we pray tonight? Why do we need to fast and pray this month? After all God had already said all will be well and he doesn’t lie? Many of the things he said, we are already seeing, so why don’t we just sit down and relax?
Psalm 115 v 3 says our God is in the heaven, he does as he pleases, he is theAlmightyGod, he is the sovereign God, in 1 Samuel 2 v 30 he said to Eli, I said indeed that your house and your father house, shall stand before me forever, he said but now I say, I am not saying so anymore. He said I said it and he said I am not saying it anymore, he said if you don’t like arrest me let us see.
Elijah knows God; that he is the Almighty, he can do and undo, he can make and unmake, he can speak and he can say am not saying so anymore, however Elijah also knows 2 Chronicle 7 v 14 says if my people that are called by name, will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and I will heal their land, Elijah knows yes God is sovereign, if you will pray, if you will humble yourself and pray he will answer.
Who is that fellow that God will answer tonight? If it is you tell him it is me.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said your first rain is about to fall soon and many will follow.
The man of God heard and then he prophesied and he began intense pray, he threw himself on the ground , he humbled him selves intense prayer, but then he did something extra, he added action to his prayer, diligent action, he told the servant, keep going, keep checking. James 2 v 14- 17 tells us that faith without works is dead. Hebrews 11 v 6 tells us that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.
Those who diligently seek him!
The tide is turning, but you needed to act, not just pray. You pray and act. You need a job, you must write application and check whether they receive your application. Find out when is the time for interview, put action to your prayer. You are a student and you say all is well, you have to study, don’t just pray, don’t just sing choruses, don’t just make positive confessions, you have to study.
I have told you before, some student said but the bible says the Holy Spirit can do all things for us, so why do we need to bother study again? I said if you fail; the Holy Spirit will comfort you, he will tell you my son, don’t worry, you have failed this time because you didn’t study, but tomorrow will be alright, tomorrow you will study and then I will remind you of the things you have learnt.
You want tomorrow to be alright as a student, you must study. My professor told me in 1964 he said you have to go over the same things ten times if you want to remember everything. No matter how brilliant you think you are , the first time you read you think you have assimilated all, you close the book and try to remember. You have to go over and over again. You want to reach the top? You must acquire a skill. Whatever you do you must be good at it, if you are a tailor, be a good tailor. If you are a carpenter be good at it. God is not going to prosper anybody who is lazy, anyone who is sloppy. He is looking for diligent, hardworking skilled people.
A friend of mine introduce his brother to me, he said this my brother has just qualified as a tailor and he is very good, please patronize him. I gave him material to sow a trouser for me, he so mutilated what I gave him! I told all my friends; this man is not a tailor he is a barber, he knows how to reduce mountains to nothing, learn a skill be good at what you are doing, maybe that is the tide that is beginning to turn for you, that you go and learn a trade and be skilled at whatever you do.
The Lord says there is somebody here tonight, he said when your adversary is celebrating; he will hear a news that will cause him to freeze.
Then the seventh time, God has a timetable for everything, Ecclesiastes 3 v 1 -8 tells us that God has his time table, everything he does, he does to time. In 2king 5 v 1 -14 the man of God told Naaman, deep yourself seven times in Jordan. The first time he came up a leper, fifth time he was still a leper, sixth time he was still a leper, but thank God when he came out the seventh time, he came with brand new skin. Later tonight, we are going to pray, I am going to give you seven prayer points. By the time we get to the seventh prayer point. By the time you will be saying the seven prayers; you will get up on your feet and say Hope rising!
Daddy says, that there is someone here tonight, he said the doors that the enemy shut against you, he will uproot them so that they will never be able to shut again.
God has a timetable, but for somebody the time is now, because in Psalm 112 v 13 says thou will arise and have mercy on Zion, because the time to favor her has come.
Then the seventh time, the young man saw a little crowd, like the fist of a man. Whenever God wants do something great, he always started small, the mustard seed is the smallest among seeds, but the mustard tree is a giant. God always begin mighty things in very, very small that is why Zachariah 4 v 10 says don’t despise the days of small beginnings. The beginning may be small, don’t let that bother, because in Job 8 v 7 the bible gives the assurance, though your beginnings might be small, your latter end shall surely be great, what is happening to you tonight might be just one little phrase that you will hear, maybe just a sentence from my preaching or maybe you’ve already caught something from the song, or maybe what the Bishop preacher spoke about, maybe you are the Mephibosheth that the king will send for, maybe you have already heard something, or maybe when you hear the prayer point and you will say that must be me . It may be a very small beginning, but by the time God finishes with you everybody will know that the Almighty God has visited you.
Then he said that small cloud was rising, that is the beauty of it all. When hope is rising, there is no limit to where you can go in rising.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said this year; every member of your family will have at least one major testimonies.
Now when we talk about rising, we have various ways something can rise; it can be pushed up, we have examples in the bible of those who rose, who were pushed up. Take Moses for example In Exodus 4 v 10-17 God said you are going to be a deliverer, you will deliver my nation. He said God I am not going, God said okay I will show you miracles, he showed him first miracle, second miracle, he showed him third miracle. He said ‘God I am not going’, God has to pushed him up.
He has to push up Joshua if you read Joshua 1 v 1 -8, three times, God had to say to Joshua, be strong and be of good courage, be strong and be of good courage, the third time God had to say it angrily, … he had to push him up. What about Gideon in Judges 6 v 11 -16 God said you are my man that I have chosen, he said no, no! It can’t be me, God had to push him up.
Those of you that the Almighty God had been planning to promote, and you said no, no God leave me alone, may he push you up today in Jesus name.
Another way things could rise, is to pull it up, Psalm 40 v 1 -3 he said he brought me out of the miry clay and set my feet on the rock to stay. Pulled up! In 1Samuel 16 v 11 – 13, God pulled up David, he didn’t even know what was happening, he just saw himself being anointed as king. Pulled up!
I know there is someone here tonight that the Almighty God is going to pull up, if you are the one, let me hear you say amen loud and clear.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said there have been some swellings in your armpit, painful, so suspicious, the Lord asked me to tell you, and before the sun rises they will be gone.
And the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said because of the decision t you took at the beginning of this year to serve me like never before; he said very soon miracles will become a daily occurrence in your life.
The third way something could rise, is to be carried up, not pushed up, not pulled up but carried up. The bible talks about people mounting with wings as eagles Isaiah 40 v 31 and in 2 king 2 v 11 the bible said Elijah went up by a whirlwind to heaven, he was carried to heaven and then we see a classical example of someone that was carried high .
The Lord said that there is a woman here tonight, that that which Satan planted in your womb has been uprooted.
Daddy ask me to tell somebody, he said be of good courage, because that which collapse shall be rebuilt.
In 1 king 1 v 11 – 40, Solomon was just playing having fun in the palace, he didn’t know what was going on but the high priest and his mother, and they had already concluded a plan. And they went n to King David and his mother said to David, ‘you promise that my son will be king after you” and David tried to remember when did I promise this woman? There is no record in the bible that David made that promise! Bathsheba said you promised. David said maybe because am getting old am forgetting things, in any case if you say I promise, but I can’t remember when. As they were discussing that the prophet came in, so what are we waiting for, let somebody bring Solomon, Solomon, daddy is calling you and he came, what is going on here? Kneel down you are now the king. Me! King! I can’t even calculate very well, how I can be king; even I know I am not bright. Whether you are bright or not you are king. That is why when God visited him what do you want he said God, jus t give me wisdom, I don’t know how they make me a king but they have made me the King, God just give me wisdom.
I want to prophesy to the life of somebody here; that the position you don’t deserve the Almighty God will give it to you. And when you get there, the wisdom to cope he will release unto you.
So there are three ways to rising, pull up, pulled and then carried up!
But then there was something about this cloud as it was rising, it was also spreading, because the bible say very soon that small cloud, that rose like the fist of a man covered the whole sky. I prophecy to somebody here today, not only will your blessing will be great, it will spread throughout the whole world.
Whatever is of God will start small, but it will keep growing, keep growing. Mark 4 v 28 it said the earth brings for the fruit of its own, first its blade, then the ear and then the full corn. Mark 4 v 28 the earth brings for fruit of itself but it does it step by step, first the blade, then the ear, then the full corn I the ear. It may start small but it doesn’t remain small, the lay man started by rising, walking, then leaping and the praising God.
Somebody here is here tonight, your greatest worry is you constantly have sex in the dream, God said it will never happen again.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said I will help you exceed your wildest dream.
Genesis 26 v 12 -14 told us how God dealt with Isaac, the man wax great and then he went forward and then he grew until he became very great. that is the way God does it; he take you from nothing to great and he let that greatness spread and it will keep rising until great becomes very great and then very great becomes the envy of a nation.
So the cloud rose and spread until it covers the whole sky, and then the bible says and there was a great rain, the major point here that I want you to please take not of seriously is that it is what goes up that come down. Something must go up to bring something down. Psalm 57 v 5 -7 tells us that when praise goes up blessing will get down, it says let all the people praise thee, then God our God will bless us and the whole earth will fear him. Many of you don’t know the reason why I keep on asking you to shout halleluiah! When praise goes up, blessing comes down.
Number two when worship goes up; healings comes down. go through the scriptures, almost everyone who got a major healing from God, started by worshipping him, Matthew 8 v 1 -3, the Leper came to Jesus, before he asked for anything, he worshiped him. Mark 5 v 22 – 24 before Jarius asked for help, he feel down before Jesus and worship him. Those who don’t know how to worship God are robbing themselves, if you are too big to worship him, then you are too big to be healed. When worship goes up healings come down.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; you came here expecting something great, the Lord asked me to assure you, you will not be disappointed.
Daddy says there is a woman here, a pregnant woman he asked me to tell you, stop worrying; your day of delivery will be easy.
Number three, when prayers go up; deliverance comes down Act 12 v 5 -11 people prayed and deliverance came for Peter. Matthew 15 v 21 – 28 a woman prayed and deliverance came for her daughter. When prayers go up; deliverance will come down!
When an uncommon offering goes up, divine visitation will come down 2 chronicles 1 v 6 -15 Solomon sent up an uncommon sacrifice and God himself came down. Misers don’t know what they are missing, they missed divine visitation. Malachi 3 v 10 -11 when all tithes go up; open heavens comes down. When tithe goes up open heaven come down
Number six, when first fruit increase goes up, unlimited returns come down. According to Proverb 3 v 8-9honour God with your first fruit, he will send down an unlimited return.
Number seven, when first fruit sacrifice goes up, not increase but the whole first fruit goes as a sacrifice; irreversible blessing blessings come down.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said my gifts within you will begin to operate more powerful in you more than ever before.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said what I have in store for you, is far greater than human understanding.
Genesis 22 v 1 – 18 when Abraham sacrifice Isaac, he didn’t kill him but he was willing to, he was willing to surrender Isaac completely to God, God swore, he said by myself have I swore, whatever happens not the future, he said in blessing i will bless you, in multiplying in will multiply you.
When first fruit sacrifice fruit goes up, irreversible blessing come down.
Number eight, Isaiah 1 v 19 tells us that when obedience goes up; the good of the land comes down, if you are willing and obedient you will eat the good of the land.
Number nine, when you begin to seek the Lord, when the Lord see that your heart is determined to seek him abundance comes down. Psalm 34 v 10 the young lions do lack and suffer hunger but they that seek the Lord shall never lack good things.
Number ten Matthew 6 v 25 – 33 when you are seeking God’s kingdom, all needs will be met, he said seek ye first the kingdom of God and its righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.
Let me conclude so that we can have time to pray, Mathew 4 v 17 tells us when repentance goes up; the kingdom of God comes down, he said repent for the kingdom of God is at hand, you can have all the benefit that the kingdom of God can give; salvation, healing, joy, victory, all kinds of blessing that are embedded in the kingdom of God, it can be yours provided you repent first. Repentance must go up before the kingdom of God can come down.
Jesus said to Nicodemus you must be born again if you are to see the kingdom of God, if you are not born again you cannot partake of that kingdom. That is why I want to encourage those who are here tonight who have not given your life to Jesus, you better do so, do so because time is running out, Jesus will soon return, he will soon return to established his kingdom on earth, all the signs that we are seeing are all telling us that the end is near; wars, rumors of war, floods, earth quake, fire destroying things, all kinds of things that are happening. Telling us that the end is near and you can only be part of that kingdom if you are born again. You have an opportunity to night to come and surrender your lives to Jesus; I am willing to pay for your salvation. I am willing to ask the Almighty God to forgive you all your sin that might even be the turning point for you that will cause your hope to begin to rise. If you have not given your life to Jesus come now.
As you come begin to pray, ask God to be merciful unto you, ask him to save your soul, ask him to be cleanse you in his blood, promise him that from now on you will receive him as your Lord and savior for the rest of your life… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed
Eternal rock of ages we want to thank you for your word, We thank you for these children who have come forward tonight; you promise oh! Lord that whosoever will come unto you, you will not cast out. They have come to you now please release them in Jesus name. Be merciful unto them in Jesus, let your blood wipe away their sin in Jesus name, save their souls tonight and write their names in the book of life. Father, I pray that beginning from now, anytime they call on you, father answer them in Jesus name, thank you father, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Now is time for prayer, Elijah was the one who heard and he was the one who pray the violent of the prayer
1. Praise God for the previous answer he has given to your prayer
2. Father if there is any sin at all that can hinder my prayers tonight, father, please forgive; I will not annoy you again.
3. Father, remember your promises to me, fulfill them speedily
4. Father, don’t let the enemy triumph over me. That enemy it may be sickness, poverty or demon, don’t let the enemy triumph over me.
5. Father, let my victory be total don’t let the enemy share your glory.
6. Father, let my rain begin to fall now
7. Father, bless me and make me a blessing to my nation, promote me and help me to promote others, help me and make me a help to others
8. You can add your own prayer point.
Go ahead and talk to God for the next one hour… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed,
we thank you for all the prayers you have answered in the past, accept our thanks in Jesus name. Father, we bless your name, we thank you for the prayers you have answered in the past. We know you are the unchangeable Lord, if you have answered in the past, we know you will answer again, accept our thanks in Jesus name.
Father, if there be any sin whatsoever in the life of your children that could stand between us and the miracles we need, please forgive in Jesus name. That blood that cleanses from all sins let it cover all our sins in Jesus name. Concerning all of us who are here today, all your promises fulfill them in Jesus name. Fulfill them speedily in Jesus name. Every one of you here today, in that name that is above every other name, the enemy will not triumph over you. No matter how hard they tried, the enemy will not overcome you. In the wonderful name of Jesus, your victory shall be total; your victory shall be complete. The glory of God in your life shall be full. Beginning from now, your rain shall begin to fall; In your home there will be showers of blessings, your places of work, there will be showers of blessings, in your churches, there will be showers of blessing. The name of Almighty God will bless you and you will become a blessing, he will use you to bless your nation. The Almighty God himself will promote you, he will lift you up, he will carry you up, everything holding you down, he will destroy. And he will use you to promote others. The Almighty God will send help you; he will help you in the morning, he will help me in the afternoon, he will help you in the evening, he will help you in the night time. From sources known and unknown, he will send help to you, and he will use you to help others. All your private requests; he will change them to testimonies, beginning from now your hope will keep rising, you will become great, you will move forward, you will grow, you will become very great, you will become then envy of your nation, position you don’t even deserve, God will take you there. this will be the beginning of your joy and you will never know sorrow again and you too will serve the Lord, more than ever before you will serve the Lord.

I Samuel 17 v 43-47 (5.23)And the Philistine said to David, come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air and to the beasts of the field.
Then said David, thou come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a shield but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts of the God of armies of Israel, whom thou has defied.
This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand and I will smite and take thine head from thee and I will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth that all the earth may know there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lords and he will give you into our hands.
We want to talk about divine champions; the first question you want to ask is who is a champion? We called him the winner, the visitor or the over comer.
But in brief the champion is the one who remain standing when the battle is over.
When David fought Goliath, when the battle was over, Goliath lay down dead, David stood up on top of him.
Everything that has been warring against you, they will become your footstool tonight in Jesus name.
What is divine? Divine mean something that has to do with God, God related, God connected. And then the question is which God are we talking about, Psalm 91 v 1 that God is the most high, the one who is higher than the highest. That God is the Almighty, the God of all flesh with whom nothing shall be impossible. Which God are we talking about? According to Psalm 24 v 7 – 10 that God if the Lord of host, the God who has never lost a battle, who can drown his enemy, who can bury his enemies alive, who can use worms to eat up his enemies.
so then who is a divine champion?
Number one, he is a champion that is raised up by God according to 1 Samuel 2 v 8 he is the one who can lift up the beggar from the dunghill and cause him to seat with princes, he is the who can make a man a champion.
Divine champion is someone supported by God. Romans 8 v 31 says if God be for us, who can be against us? The divine champion is the champion strengthens by God. In 1 king 18 v 46, God laid His hand on Elijah and he outran the chariot of Ahab, because God gave him supernatural strength. Who is a divine champion, a divine champion is one made wise by God. Because in Daniel 2 v 20 – 21, it is God who give wisdom to the wise. Who is a divine champion? A divine champion is someone loved by God. And when God loves somebody that fellow become undefeatable according to Romans8 v 37the bible says we are more than conquerors, through him who loved us.
A divine champion is a champion sponsored by God. Whatever he does, he does according to instruction from God. In 1 king 18 v 36 Elijah said, Lord let it be know this day that you are the God in Israel and that I am your servant and I have done all these things in your name. Let everybody know you are the Almighty God, I am you champion sponsored by you. Who is a champion? A champion is one sustained by God, he is the one for whom God provides.
In 1 King 17 v 2- 6 God told Elijah, go and stay by brook Cherith, I have commanded ravens to bring you food and drink from the water there. When the water dried up from v 8-16, God said to Elijah go to Zarephath, I have commanded the widow woman there to sustain thee. What am I saying? When you become a divine champion, God will promote you, he will support you, he will strengthen you, he will make you wise, he will love you, he will sponsor you and he will sustain you.
Who is a divine champion? A divine champion is a representative of God, a champion that fights in the name of God. David said to Goliath “I have come against you in the name of the Lord” I am his champion, even as you are the champion of the Philistine, a divine champion fights in the name of the Lord, and I am praying for everyone of you here tonight, that the power to fight against the enemies of God; to fight against sickness, disease, demons, poverty, barrenness, receive that power now in Jesus name.
A divine champion is an ambassador of God, he speaks on behalf of God and when he speaks on behalf of God, God backs up whatever he says. In 1 Samuel 3 v 19 it is written concerning Samuel, a divine a champion that God did not allow any of his word to fall to the ground. In 2 king 1 v 9-12 when some soldiers came to arrest Elijah, they made a statement, “man of God, come down, you are under arrest” divine champion, come down you are under arrest, he answered, ‘if I be a man of God, if I be a divine champion, I command that fire some down from heaven and burn you all’, before he finish speaking, fire descended. I decree once again tonight, that all forces trying to arrest your progress, because I am a man of God may fire come down from heaven and consume every hindrance in Jesus name. So what can a divine champion do?
Thank you father, the Lord wants me to tell you that there is someone here tonight; he says my wind is blowing here tonight, and your red sea will part before it.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, the Doctors have said there is a shadow in your lung, the Lord asked me to tell you the shadow is gone.
The Lord said there is a lady here tonight, you came here with swollen breast, the Lord ask me to tell you, you can check your breast are back to normal.
The Lord said there is a man here, you came tonight with enlarge prostrate, the Lord ask me to tell you, check in the next few minute, everything will be back to normal.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he ask me to assure you that from this moment onward, you will no longer be a victim of satanic oppression.
The Lord said there is a woman here because of what has happen to the baby in t your womb, the Doctors said they are going to evacuate. The Lord asks me to tell you the baby is already moving again.
Halleluiah! The Lord said there is a woman here, the doctors have told you that they are seriously considering caesarian operation to bring out your baby, daddy ask me to tell you, he will intervene.
What can divine champions do? They can defeat sickness; Mark 16 v 18 the Lord says these signs that follow them that believe, in my name they will lay hand on the sick, they will recover.
Divine champions can defeat demons; Mark 16 v 17 in mine Name, they will cast out demons. Divine champions can neutralize curses in 2king 2 v 19 – 22Elisha cancelled the curse that was on Jericho and changed the curse to a blessing.
And I stand on this altar as a champion of the most high God and I decree that every curse on your life is cancelled now. Every curse on your family, gone now. Every curse on your town and villages; I cancel hem in the name of the Lord.
A divine champion can defeat bareness; 2 kings 4 v 8 – 17 There is a woman of Shunem, she had everything except a child and the champion, the divine champion Elisha made a decree that she will become fruitful, even though she didn’t believe but because it came as a decree. it cancelled her unbelief and bring to pass the word of the divine champion.
I here by decree that by this time next year, when we call for testimonies those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, the altar will be full of you and your triplet.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said all that has resisted your progress thus far; are out of the way now.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said don’t settle for what the expert said, he ask me to tell you, your case is not close yet.
The divine champion can defeat poverty 2 kings 4 v 1 -7 is the story of a destitute, so poor that the credited wanted to sell her children, in a single day all her debts were paid and she was rich for the rest of her life. I hereby decree to all of you who are here tonight; for the rest of your life, you will have more than sufficient.
A divine champion can defeat even death, 22 king 4 v 18 – end, tells us about the death of the son of the Shulamite woman but Elijah came and laid on that child and the child came back to life. I decree tonight because my daddy says I should keep on decreeing, everything that death has swallow in your life, death shall vomit them in Jesus name.
The divine champion can even defeat the siege of the enemy. 2 kings 7 v 1 – end tells us the story; when here was a siege against Samaria, things were so hard that woman were eating their children; a divine champion made a decree that within 24 hours, the tide will turn and just has he said, it was done. The siege was lifted because the enemies heard a noise. I decree tonight, all those who have been laying siege, against your destiny, they will hear a voice from heaven. I decree that every siege against you, against your marriage, against your finances, against your progress is lifted right now.
Now I want you to listen very carefully: please know that without any doubt God is here. The Lord said there is a woman here, when you were desperately looking for a child, you prayed a prayer that God give me a child, just give me a child after that I am ready to die. And the Lord said now you are pregnant and you have remembered your prayer. You are afraid to die. He says I am to pray for you tonight specially, so that he can cancel the dead part of the contract.
And the Lord said there is someone here tonight, before you became a Christian you made a charm that has a convent attached, that you will be wealthy for seven years, after seven years; you will die. And this is the seventh year, but the Lord said because you are here tonight, he is wanting to cancel that one too.
The Lord says there is someone here, you belong to a very powerful secret society and it is your turn to turn to provide a human sacrifice and the date that you are suppose to provide it has passed, because you don’t want to do more so now that you are a Christian, but the covenant is you don’t bring someone they will take you instead. The Lord said because you are tonight, he will take care of the situation.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, anytime you are hungry, your body begins to shake and you don’t like it, but there is nothing you can do about it, the Lord said if you come out tonight, he will take care of it.
Finally, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said it is becoming extremely difficult for you to stop laughing; when there is nothing to laugh about you just keep on laughing,. You wake up in the middle of the night you just want to keep on laughing. It is becoming very difficult for you to stop laughing. The Lord said he wants to stop the demons in charge.
If you are one of the five cases mentioned, I will only count one to ten, if by the time I say ten you are not already before me, I will pray for those who are standing before me and I will continue with the program. Now don’t blame God if you go back with that your problem. Quickly now if you are one of the five people mentioned, run forward now. One, two, three…
As you come, begin to pray… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Merciful God, how great thou art that you see this many people suffering from several situation, you want to settle all these cases in one night. How great thou hart, accept our thanks in Jesus name. Father I plead the blood of the lamb over these your children, that Blood that conquered Satan, let it conquer for them now in Jesus name. It is written in your word, that if a child makes a vow and the father hears of the vow and says I cancel it will be canceled, that your daughter, who out of frustration prayed that careless prayer, I hereby decree She will deliver safely she will not die, she will live to declare the works of the Lord in fact father I decree, because of the permission you have given me tonight, that she will have more children.
The one who entered into covenant into the devil for wealth, now that he has realized his mistake, forgive in Jesus name, I decree hat death will stay away from you in Jesus name. now that he has come into the society of the evil one, father fight for him. The one who just wants to laugh, that demons that is causing him to laugh compulsively, I decree right now get out of him or her in Jesus name. The one who shakes whenever he is hungry, whatever it is responsible for that condition; in the name of Jesus get out in Jesus name. Father, bless your children and let it be well with them thank you for victory in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let some clap for What God has done tonight!
So a divine champion, fighting God’s battle for him; defeat demons, defeat poverty, defeat death, defeat bareness, defeat sickness, cause siege to be lifted.
Now the question is are there personal advantages in being a divine champion?
When you are a divine champion, it is impossible for you to fail on a permanent basis, because Philippians 4 v 13 says that I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me. When I become a divine champion, I draw my strength from the one who chose me to be a divine champion. So I can only go from success to success. I hereby decree tonight, for all of you who are here, you will never know failure again. When you are a divine champion, even if the enemy should knocked you down, there is no way you can stay down, because the one who has made you a divine champion will lift you up again.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said from now on in every conflict of life you win.
In 1 king 19 v 6-8, it appears as if the enemy has knocked down Elijah but the Almighty God resuscitated him. When you are a divine champion, when the enemy knocks u down you will be like a football, the harder you knock it down, the higher it bounces. Every one of you who are down today, before the end of the month you will be much higher than you are now.
A divine champion can be on top permanently, Deuteronomy 28 v 13 says you shall be head and not tail, you will be above only and not beneath, and I want to echo the voice of the Lord and decree to somebody here today. That even as you are riding high you will keep ridding high. I decree to someone here today, that statement that “it used to be good for him, that statement will never be applied to you”. The statement that “he used to be great, will never be happen to you.
What are the requirements for being a divine champion, my son who spoke to me before have already given us some of these requirement and those who spoke yesterday have cleared the ground.
But for the benefit of those who probably came late; Number one you must have faith in God, Hebrew 11 v 6 it says if you are coming to God you must believe that he is, He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek home and without faith it is impossible to please God, and without faith you can’t be a champion.
To be a divine champion, seeking God must be your priority, you must seek God diligently, Psalm 34 v 10 says the young lions do lack and suffer hunger but they that seek the Lord will never lack any good thing,
To be a divine champion, you must be determined to know God that you will find out what anybody can know about God.
Thank you God, I can hear the sounds of chains dropping. Will you just stand up and keep on praying him, chains are dropping off, I can hear the sounds of chain dropping. The Lord asked me to tell you because of the chain he has broken tonight, all those things you tried before and you didn’t succeed tried them again. All those doors you have knocked that didn’t open, knock them again, all the mountains you have tried to climb that you couldn’t climb try them again, daddy ask me to tell you before the 1 April, somebody here will have an outstanding miracle.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said you may not know it yet, but they will soon call you the Joseph of our family.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said you are tormented by the memory of lost opportunity, the Lord asks me to tell you, it is a new day now.
The Lord says here is someone here tonight; he said there is a blessing coming your way that will make you tremble.
How do I qualify to be a divine champion? You submit to him, because it is when you submit to him that you can resist the devil. James 4 vs 7 submit to God then you can resist the devil and he will flee from you and they learn to spend time with him.
Daddy said there is someone here tonight; he said long before you die, people will describe you as a light shining in the darkness.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said don’t worry I will preserve your destiny.
The Lord said someone is here tonight, he said whatever troubles maybe ahead this year; he says I will exempt your family.
Spend time with him and then learn to talk with him; in praise and in worship, because John 4 v 23-24 said God seeks those who worship him, in spirit and in truth. Pray to Him; because when you don’t pray you are trying to tell him you don’t need him that you can handle your situation yourself. If the Lord Jesus Christ needed to pray how you could say you are not going to pray.
Finally, if you want to be a divine champion, you must be holy because he is a holy God and he said in his word, can two walk together except they be agreed Amos 3 v 3. How can I be a holy God and you be a dirtying champion? You want to be my champion? You must be holy as I am holy, 1 Peter 1 v 15-16. To be a divine champion, you must stay away from sin; sin can separate the champion from his God.
We have run out of time so I can’t go ahead and begin to tell you that there are three categories of people who are gathered here tonight, potential champion, reigning champions and ex – champions. Samson became an ex-champion, when sin separated him from God. When he was a reigning champion, no enemy can withstand him. I want you to be a reigning champion and reign forever. I want you to be an undefeated champion all the days of your life that is why you must be holy. And the greatest joy of being a divine champion is that when you finished in this world, you will reign with Christ.John 14 v 1 -3 Jesus said let not your heart be trouble, believe in God also believe in me, in my father’s house there are many mansion there, he said I go to prepare a place for you. When am through I will come for you, so that where I am you will be also. The greatest joy of an undefeated champion, if he remains an undefeated champion is that he will end up reigning with Jesus Christ in his kingdom. And I have good news for you, he is coming soon, to take all of us champion to be with him? Will you be ready comes? How many of you want to reign with him forever? So shall it be in Jesus name.
1. Praise him for what he has already done for you tonight
2. Father, let me be your champion forever
3. Father, don’t let me know failure ever again
4. Father, please turn my defeat to victory
5. Father, let my massive restoration begin tonight.
6. Father, all I need to serve you please provide abundantly
7. Father, let my family be a family of champions
Begin to pray now along this prayer line… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Father, we thank you for those who are carried in who are already walking, we thank you for those that have been prayed for and the anointing is already working on them, we know that very soon, they will be walking. Accept our thanks in Jesus name. We commit everybody here into your hands, let all of us become your champions, let us be your champions forever, turn all our defeats to victory in Jesus name. Don’t let us ever know failure again. Let our families be families of champions in Jesus name. Let all our restorations come back to us now in Jesus name and everything we need to serve you, please provide massively in Jesus name, thank you Almighty God, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen, Let somebody shout halleluiah.

Let somebody shout halleluiah!
Luke 18 v 15 – 17 and they brought unto him infant also that he will touched them, and when the disciple saw it, they rebuke them. And Jesus called unto them and said suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God, verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. How many children are here, if you are younger than a mountain, then you must be a little child of God! so every little child, let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Tonight we want to talk on BELOVED OF THE MOST HIGH, those are the little children and they are the child of the most high, that’s why I know I am the beloved of the most high because I am a little child in the hand of God.
Who is the Almighty? Who is the most high? Psalm 91 v 1 tells us that the most high is also the same as the Almighty; he that dwelt in the secret of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Who is the most high?Ecclesiastes 5 v 8 calls him the one who is higher than the highest; he is higher than anyone that is why he is called the most high. Who is the most high? Proverbs 21 v 1 says he is the controller of the hearts even of kings. He said he controls the heart to king as he controls rivers of water. Who is the most high? The most high is the one who rules by decree, the original majesty. Psalm 33v 8 -9 he said let the whole earth fear before God, because he speaks and it is done.
When he says let there be light and there will be light, who is the most high, the most high is the one who word is law.Isaiah 55 v 10 – 11, he said is word will never return to him void. When he speaks, it happens. Now when you are the beloved of the most high? What does his love do for you? John 3 v 16 says for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. His love does for you several things; he makes eternal life available to you, he makes everlasting life. His love gives you deliverance from prediction because he loves you; you will not perish. Because he love you, he makes salvation available unto you John 15 v 13 says greater love has no man than this that a man lays down his life for a friend. What does his love do for you? Romans 8 v 31 says his love makes you more than a conqueror. Says we are more than conqueror through him that loved us, what does his love to do for us, his love makes available to us, anything we ever need.
The Lord says there is a particular parent here tonight; who is worried about a particular son who is running wild, he ask me to tell you, he will end up as Paul the apostle.
The bible says in Romans 8 v 32, he said the one who has given us his only begotten son, what else will he not give us in addition, because he loves you he gives you his only begotten son. In addition any other thing you may need, he will make available to you. What does his love do for you? When God loves you he set you up for blessing, he will create a situation whereby you will be bless. Not ordinary blessing but inexhaustible blessing. In 1 king 17 v 8 – 16,because he loves the widow of Zarephath, he set her up for a blessing that can never run dry.
There are categories of blessing, there are blessing that are general, he cause his rain to fall on both and good and evil, he causes the sun to shine on everybody good or evil, he makes air available to everybody, good or evil but then he gives special love to those he loves and in other that you may not accuse him of partiality, he set up those he loves so that when he does what he wants to do for them, nobody will be able to accuse him. He inspires the widow of Zarephath, to surrender her last meal, so that the last can be the first. So that if anybody should accuse him in the future and say there are many widows in the land, why did you send Elijah to only one? He will turn to the other widow who are complaining and say can you release your last meal? He set up those that he loves so that he can give them inexhaustible blessing. May he set you up for inexhaustible blessing today in Jesus name.
When he loves you he set you for irreversible blessing. He will ask you to do something for him that will be serious sacrifice, so that he can bless you irreversibly.
Thank you father, the Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said I created you to bring glory to your family not shame, and he said my plan for your life will still be fulfilled.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said you are prone to stumbling and falling, he asked me to tell you and end comes to that from tonight.
In Genesis 22 v 1- 18 the Almighty God to give him a first fruit sacrifice, he did. He was on the point of killing his son when the Almighty stopped him and God himself swore; in blessing I will bless you, in multiplying; I will multiply your seeds forever. When God swears, that is settled forever.
When he loves you, he bends over backwards to give you a miracle. He will go beyond ordinary to give you your miracle. 2 kings 5 v 1-14 he sent a messenger to Naaman to come and receive his healing. He arrived and went to the king instead of to the prophet; God reached out to him again and said no! I didn’t send you to the king; come to my prophet, the prophet told him what to do before he can be healed. He got angry was about to lose his miracle but God sent a second messenger, and said don’t be stupid do what you are told and he agreed did what he was told and he got his healing.
I know there is somebody here tonight, whatever you need to do to receive your miracle, he will give you tonight in Jesus name.
When he loves you; he anoints you for promotion. There anointing you are going to get tonight, is not going to be protection from evil it is anointing for promotion. Before this year runs out somebody is going to shout for joy.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said the devil caught a glimpse of your glorious future, that is why he has try to kill you early, the Lord asked me to tell you he will fail.
I Samuel 11 v11- 13 he anointed David for promotion; he said I have found a man after my own heart, a man that I loved and therefore I will promote him.
May divine promotion come your way today in Jesus name!
When he loves you he will cause your enemy to leave you alone Proverbs 16 v 11 the Lord says when a man’s way please God, he will cause even his enemy to be at peace with him. In Psalm 23 v 5-6 David said thou prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemy, thou anoint my head with oil, my cups runs over, he 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.
In the presence of your enemy, you will reach your goal, goodness will follow you, mercy will follow you, and you will eat and have abundance. So shall it be in Jesus name.
Now, God loves the whole world, for God so love the world and yet, the night before Jesus died, he prayed a strange prayer; he said Lord am not praying for the world, I am praying for those you have giving me. It tells you there are categories of Love; general love and special love. God loves children specially, that is why I pity those of you who think you are too old for God. As I sat down here and the music was going on, there were showing on the screen little children dancing, wonderful people. They don’t know what is called being shy. They don’t care whether you are looking or not looking. But I see those of us who are big, who are men of timber and caliber, we can’t dance that is why he can’t carry us in his hand for blessing because we are too big. If I ask little children to shout, they do it with all their heart, if I asked the big ones to shout, you will have to beg them.
Little children shout halleluiah!
The Lord said there is a woman here tonight, he said before you left home with tears, you cried to him and said God when they are anointing children, let my own be among. The Lord asked me to tell you it is done.
The Lord asked me to tell somebody a story, the story about my birth. My mother had three daughters and a son. after that she said no more. Suddenly the son dies. So people came to my mother, began to put pressure on her; try one more, you never can tell, just try one more. So she tried one more and I came. Try one more! The Lord asked me to tell somebody here today, the World thinks they have taken away your crown, I allowed that because I want to give you a better crown and he added he said that crown I am going to give you, nobody will be able to take it away.
I was talking about God loves children specially In Numbers 14v 26 – 31 when some parent were not willing to receive God’s blessing, God said they don’t want the blessing? Don’t worry I will give your children. He can jump over parent and bless the children. My prayer for you tonight is that both you and your children will be blessed in Jesus name.
When we go through the scriptures we found out the normal pattern of God is that when he blesses the parent, the children are automatically blessed. Gen 28 v 10 – 16 tells you the story of Jacob when he was running away from home after he has just cheated his brother, to take his blessing and he fell asleep and had a dream and God appeared to him, somebody that God should not even appear to at all, but God told him am the God of Abraham your father, I have promised Abraham that I will bless him , I will make him a blessing. Because you are his grandchild and I have blessed Abraham you too will be blessed.
I prayed for every parent here tonight, your blessing will not end with you it will flow over to your children in Jesus name. But it is equally true that When God curses a parent it can flow to the children too.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said I should inform you that there will yet be a sound of children playing in your home and they will be your own children.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight he said it doesn’t matter how old you get before you die, you will no longer mourn.
2 king v 20 – 27 Gehazi lied against the man of God in the name of God pronounce a curse on him and the curses included all the seeds after him. There are some people who are suffering today because of the curse that was place on their fathers, I pray for all of you who are here today; if there is any curse troubling you because of what your parent did, in the name that is above every other name, I cancel such curse today in Jesus name.
Incidentally when God blesses nobody can reverse it and when he curses nobody can reverse it either. Number 23 v 19 – 20 he said how can I curse him who God had not curse, he said he has commanded to bless, he has bless and I cannot reverse it.
Irreversible blessing of the most high will come upon you and your family tonight in Jesus name. but when he curses, nobody can reverse it except himself that is one of the reasons why those who have any atom of common sense don’t rob God, because if they robbed him of his tithe and he places a curse on them, the curse go on to the children.
Every curse that haven hanging over you and your children, in the name that is above every other names, may they be cancelled tonight and the grace for you to restitute your ways , receive it now in Jesus name.
Numbers 23 v 8 made it clear; if God does not curse you, any herbalist, any witch or wizard saying they are cursing you they are wasting their time. If he does not curse you, nobody can curse you at all.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said you don’t have a house now, but very soon you will own an estate.
He said there is someone here tonight, he said you suffered lose recently that shook your faith, he asked me to tell you, be comforted, because I have not forsaken you.
The Lord said among those who will be anointed here tonight, he will raise up spiritual giants.
Now if God doesn’t curse you , nobody can curse you, if he blesses you the blessing will flow to your children, but if he curses you it will flow to your children also. Therefore parent for the sake of your children, draw close to God. If you love your children, draw close to God. Numbers 14 v 18 says even though God is merciful, longsuffering, he is always forgiving, but he said he will under no circumstance clear the guilty, he said he will visit the iniquity of father upon children. So for the sake of your children, draw close to God.
As for your children, Exodus 20 v 12 tells you that you must honor your parent if you don’t want to die young. He said honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long. You know why? Because of something called the law of harvest; whatever you do to your parent that will make them happy, your children will do it to you in future. So if you honour your parent, you will live to become a parent and your children will honor you in return.
The bible says God gets very upset at children who ill treat their parent. Proverbs 20 v 20 tells us that if you ill treat tour parent? He said your light will be put out in the day time. In other words if all of a sudden you think you have arrived and you don’t have any regard for your parent anymore, you can do whatever you like with them, the Lord says he will put out your light in day time. That means not only would a child who dishonor his parent die suddenly, that child will die in a manner that everybody will wonder how can this be? I want to appeal to all of you children, if you want the blessings of God to abide with you, honor your parents.
And the Ecclesiastes 12 v 1 it advises you children don’t delay your coming to Christ. He said you must remember your creature now in the days of your youth, remember him now, and don’t say when I am old. After I have enjoyed myself for some time, then I will honor the Lord, no! He said remember the Lord now in the day of thy youth. Some of you will say I want to sow my wild oat first, I want to enjoy myself for a while, you may never be able to come back. The enemy may destroy you before you can return. Or you may be able to return after you have suffered a lot of wounds, if you come to him he will heal your wound, but the scar will still be there. So I want to appeal to you children, honor your parent and draw close to God even in the days of your youth.
As for you parent; because of your children draw to God.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is somebody here tonight, he asked me to tell you , you will laugh again.
In Matthew 11 v 28-30 he gave an invitation that invitation is for both parent and children. Come to me all ye labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. He didn’t say only old ones; he didn’t say only young ones, all! Come to me all that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. So I am giving the same invitation to you now, all of you who are suffering under the yoke of suffering from Satan come to Jesus now. Parents who have not surrendered their lives because of your children come to God tonight. Children, who are still hovering about and have not yet surrendered to God, come to Jesus now…
Savior we just want to say thank you, thank you for your word. Thank you for these people who have come today to surrender their lives to you. Father you promise that whosoever will come unto you, you will in no wise cast out please receives them in Jesus name, save their souls in Jesus name. Let your blood wash here name in Jesus name, please write their names in the book of life and from now on let them serve you. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
1 father, because you love me more than a conqueror
2. Father, because you love, everything I need to be great, release to me tonight.
3. Father, both me and the children you have given me, let us be for signs and for wonders.
4. Father, since am your beloved, don’t let me ever disappoint you; in words in deed. Just let me please you all the days of my life.
5. father, because you love me, set me up for mighty blessings and miracles.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. May the almighty God grant your request, everything you have asked for tonight, may they become testimonies. May they become testimonies very soon in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout halleluiah!

Isaiah 41 v 10 – 13 this is one of the passage in the bible, that was written specifically for me, its “says fear not, for I am with thee, be not dismay for I am thy God, I will strengthen thee, yes I will help thee, yes I will uphold thee with my right hand of righteousness. Behold all those who are incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded and be as nothing, and those that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shall seek them and shall not find them, even them that contended with thee, they that war against you as nothing.
For I the Lord they God will hold your right hand saying unto thee fear not I will help thee.
We want t talk about DIVINE ASSISTANCE, two words here: divine and assistance. Divine means that which is of God, so who is God? Genesis 1 v 1 says in the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. So who is God? The creator of the heaven and the earth.
John1 v 1 – 3 says in the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was God. And in verse 3 he says by him were all things created. So who is God? He is the creator of all things. Psalm 91 v 1 he says he that dwelt in the secret place of the most high, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. So who is God? The most high, the Almighty. Who is God? Jeremiah 32 v 27 he said I am the Lord God of all flesh, is anything too hard for me. So who is God; The God of all flesh, the one with whom nothing shall be impossible. Who is God; Genesis 14 v 18 – 19 calls him the possessor of heaven and the earth. So I can go on and on and on. At least you will have a rough idea of the God am talking about.
So when you hear somebody else says he is God, ask him, are you the creator of heaven and earth? Are you the creator of all things? Are you the most high? Are you the Almighty? Is there anything you can’t do at all? Are you the possessor of heaven and earth? If he cannot answer this question, then you will know he is not God.
What is assistance? Basically when we talk about assistance, we mean that someone uses what he has to augment what is lacking in another, so that a purpose can be achieved. For example, you want to go to college, you are brilliant, you have passed the exam, but you have no money, so you turned to somebody who has money to give you financial assistance, so that you can end up becoming a graduate. So when we talk about divine assistance, we are saying God makes available all that he has available to you so that you can achieve any purpose in life.
That is why Paul said in Philippians 4 v 13, he said I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me, in other words, anything that I want to and I don’t have the strength to do it, I can call on Christ to give me assistance and in the text that we read, God made a promise; he said I will help you. He said when I decide to help you, all your enemies will scatter, he said you will search for them and you will not find them. Now when he says all your enemies will scatter, he is not talking about human enemies alone, he is talking about sickness, he is talking about disease, he is talking about demons, he is talking about bareness, he is talking about retardation. He is talking about everything contrary to your reaching your goal.
That is while I can prophesy to somebody here tonight, by the time the sun rises, you will be celebrated.
Why do we need divine assistance? Occasionally when individual efforts will not be sufficient to yield result. In John 5 v 2 -9 the bible tell us about a man who was by the pool of Bethsaida and he has been there for thirty eight years, trying on his own to be the first to jump into the pool after the angel has troubled the water, so that he can obtain his healing. He has tried for thirty eight years and has failed, one day he got divine assistance and the problem of thirty eight years vanishes in less than thirty eight seconds and I decree tonight, because somebody is going to receive divine assistance, the problems that have been with you since you were born, will end tonight in Jesus name.
When do we need divine assistance? When specialist cannot even help. In Mark 5 v 25 – 34 the bible tells us about the woman with the issues of blood and for years, she had gone from one doctor to another, instead of getting better, she got worse. The specialist could not help and then she got divine assistance and in less than ten seconds; her problems were over. In the name that is above every other names, what the specialist said could not be done concerning you, shall be done tonight in Jesus name.
When do we need divine assistance? When there is nothing anyone can do to help us, when there is nothing any human being can do. In John 9 v 1 -7 the bible tell us of a man who was born blind. Not that his eyes were bad, he never had eyes, there was nothing anyone could do to help him, it wasn’t a case of changing the glasses, it wasn’t a case of giving him drugs, it wasn’t the case of operations, there were no eye at all, and Jesus came and give him divine assistance and that which was missing 40 yrs was giving to him in a day. I pray for someone here tonight, that which have been missing in your life, that has not allowed your joy to be full you will get it tonight in Jesus name.
When do we need divine assistance? When the Almighty God needs to go into the future and reverse the irreversible. In Genesis 18 v 9- 14 we heard the story of Sarah, she was ninety years old, she had not menstruated for more than 40 years and yet she wanted a child and she got divine assistance.
The one who said nothing is too hard for him to do and the one that the world thought would die barren began to laugh and kept laughing for the rest of her life.
I prophesy to someone here today, this very night your laughter will begin.
When do we need divine assistance? When the war you are fighting is over whelming.
Thank you Lord, Daddy asked me to tell you that the helper of the helpless is present here tonight.
Mark 5 v 1 – 20 tells us the story of a man who was not tormented by just one demon, six thousand demons were holding him captives, there were was no way that man could be free unless God step in and one word from the Almighty and suddenly freedom came. There might be somebody here tonight, fighting battles from all fronts, I have good news for you, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, freedom will come tonight in Jesus name.
What are the things God will make available to you so that you can achieve your purpose? Number one, his name; his name is available to you to make you achieve the purpose what you want to achieve in Life. In Philippians 2 v 9 -11 the bible say he has a name that is above every other names, that at the name of Jesus, every kneel should bow. Somebody once said, if your problem has a name, it is already defeated, because there is a name that is above every other names, whatever may be your problem, if it has a name, it will bow to the name of Jesus Christ tonight. Is it demons? Mark 16 v 17 he said in my name you will cast out demons. As a matter of fact he said it comprehensively in John 14 v 14 he said if you ask anything in my name, I will do it.
The name is available for you to use at any time to meet any problem, to face any challenges. Some of you remembered the story; one of my daughters was travelling to the east, to serve as a youth corps. She was travelling in a Peugeot station-wagon. In those days they have three seats, the back seats have no door and my daughter was seating at the back seat reading her bible. The Shagamu Benin road was just declared open then, smooth and wide and the drivers were using it as if it was a race track, they were going at top speed, she was reading her bible. Suddenly one of the front tired puncture and then the car begin to somersaulting. In a situation like that you need divine assistance. one of the door open and unseen hand carried her out, sat her down by the road side and as she sat down there, she saw the car rolling, as if in slow motion somersaulting the first time, the second time , the third time and the fourth time, nobody survived.
when other people came and were trying to get the people out, she moved close to them and said I was in that cars, they said she must be lying, she said that is my bible, this is my name, check the name on the bible. And you know what happened? She was reading her bible when the tyre burst and one word came out of her mouth… Jesus!
Is anybody here who needs Jesus, let me hear you shout the name, Jesus!
And his blood is available for you.
The Almighty God said there is somebody here tonight, He said as we approach the second half of the year, I will give you a breakthrough so big that you will know this can only be ME, and he asked me to tell you; 5o% is yours 50% belongs to him
Leviticus 17 v 11 says the life of the animal is in the blood, the blood of Jesus Christ contains his life, it contains the life of the Almighty God and he says that blood is available for you. You cannot rid yourself of sin on your own, it is the blood that cleanses from all sins and in Revelation 12 v 11 the bible says that the only way to overcome Satan is by the blood of the lamb. That power that is in the blood of Jesus Christ will speak for somebody here tonight.
Am sure I have told you the story before, two important people, husband and wife, suddenly discovered that their money was disappearing, the wife thought the husband was taking her money, the husband thought that it was the wife steeling, his money, until one day, one confronted another and discover it is neither of the two, they came and said ‘sir in a way we can’t explain our money keep disappearing and the Lord inspire me to tell them, that from now on anywhere you keep your money cover it with the blood of Jesus , when the devil sees your money, he won’t be able to touch your money. That was the last time, they lost any money.
In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, it is not only you I am covering, am covering your children in the blood of the lamb, am covering your business in the blood of the lamb and you will be safe in Jesus name.
And he made available to us His word, that if you need help you can use my word, Psalm 119 v 89 says forever your word is settled. Ephesians 6 v 17 calls the word of God the sword of the spirit. The word of God is like a spiritual sword use to fight against the devil
Thank you Father, the Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said I must remind you that he is the only one that you need and he said I will be with you.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said put your mind at rest, everything I promise you will come to past
In Matthew 4 v 1 – 11 when the devil was going to test the Lord Jesus Christ, the only weapon that Jesus had was the word, he just kept on saying to the devil, it is written, and the devil cannot challenge what is written.
I am saying tonight: it is written and I am saying tonight, it is written: I will live I will not die and I will declare glory of God, I am saying it is written, I will be head, I will not be tail, I said am saying it is written; there is no weapon fashioned against that shall prosper, am saying it is written; the Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. I am saying it is written, surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
I remember the first time I went to America with my father in the Lord and four other people, we went to attend Kenneth Higgins camp meeting, we have never been there before, we knew nobody, they told us there is no accommodation and we wanted to go, so I told everybody let’s go, when we get there we will get accommodation. If the worst get to the worst we will go and sleep in the police station, I said but it is written in my father’s house there are many mansion, if there are mansions waiting for me in heaven, there should be a room waiting for me in America. We got to Tulsa at the airport and we began to phone all the hotels at least one hour or more from the centers, they all kept on saying fully booked, suddenly it occur to me, if we get accommodation one hour from the centre and we had no cars, how are we going to get to the centers? I said they should try hotels that are nearest to the centre and phone them; tell them we are missionaries from Africa and we need a room. They picked the phone and said yes we can give you a room, I said “asked them, are you sure you can’t give us two? They said ‘where do you say you come from? We are from Africa. They said they will give us two, we arrived at the hotel and I said to them are you sure you can’t give us three rooms, and they gave us three rooms.
Everything you need in life to achieve your purpose in life shall be given to you tonight why? Because it is written my God shall supply my needs according to his Glory in Christ Jesus. If you believe say amen!
What else has he made available for us? His wealth you remember I told you at the beginning that he is the possessor of heaven and earth Psalm 24 v 1 says the earth is the Lord and the fullness thereof.Haggai 2 v 8 says silver is mine, gold is mine. Matthew 17 v 24 – 27 said he can even use a fish to carry money in his mouth to deliver it to you. I have good news for somebody here tonight; every financial breakthrough that you are believing God for, you will get it this month in Jesus name.
I am telling this story of the benefit of those who are hearing it for the first time. I travelled to the east to go and preach, and as i was returning, at that time I was still a lecturer at the university of Lagos and as I was returning so that I can be back on time for my lectures on Monday. I didn’t know there was fuel shortage, I got to Onitsha no fuel, I said no problem, I will get in Asaba no fuel, I got to Asaba no fuel, I said there will be fuel in Benin. I got to Benin no fuel, I said there is a depot in Ore, I will get fuel in Ore, I got to Ore no fuel. By them my tank was reading reserve. Almighty God, what am I going to do? And he spoke to me clearly, “son, take your eyes off the gauge and drive on” And I drove on all the way from Ore to Surulere and when I packed In Surulere and I then looked at the gauge, It read empty, somebody said where do you get the oil to travel from? The earth is the Lord and the fullness thereof, my father is the owner of all the oil that is under the ground, when his son needs a little bit to put in the tank, he can refine it within a second.
I am saying to someone here today, I don’t know how it is going to happen, but God will send help to you.
So he gave us something else, he gave us his prophet, okay you have use my name, you have use my blood, you have you use my word, how about you seeing my prophet? In 1 Samuel 3 v 19 the bible says he will not allow the word of his Prophet to fall to the ground. I know there prophets and there are prophets. I know there are many false prophets around the world, but like i have always said, anytime you see a counterfeit, there must be an original somewhere, when you find an original prophet, whatever he says to you, hold on to it because it will come to pass.
In 1 king 17 v 8 -16 the widow of Zarephath had only one meal left, the prophet of God said you just give it to me and for the rest of the famine you will not lack, the woman believed the prophet of God and the Almighty God backed the word of the prophet.
I will just tell you a story quickly, some of you had heard it before too. One of my sons came to Ilorin, when I got transfer to the university there and helped me to repair all the electrical problems in the house that was allocated to me. When he finished, and he wanted to return to Lagos, he asked me to pray for him, I said there is no need to pray for you, you are already blessed, God bless you that is all you need. But I said ‘how much are you charging me for the work you have done’, he said ‘how can I charge you for anything, but I don’t have any money to take me back to Lagos, if you can just give me the money to take me to Lagos, that will be all. I gave him the money to travel to Lagos, I backed it up with God bless you. he arrived at the park and as he was coming down he saw an old friend, he had come to escort somebody out of Lagos , they greeted; long time no see, where are you now? That one says I am working at Dodondon barrack, what are you doing? I am an electrician, come and see me tomorrow. To cut a long story short, one month after I say God bless you the one who could not get money to travel from Ilorin to Lagos bought a brand new car.
I am saying in the name of the Almighty God, GOD BLEES YOU!
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; he says as the raining season begins, your showers of blessings will begin.
The question now is who gets divine assistance? Because you see God is sovereign, he does as he please,Psalm 115 v 3 he says our God is in the heavens, he does as he pleases, he can decide to help and who not to help, but when we search the scriptures, we discover there are certain people who will always get his assistance, Proverb 8 v 17 he said I love them that love me, and they that seek me early shall find me.
When your friend needs help you help. Who gets his help? Psalm 50 v 14- 15 talks about those who come into his presence with thanksgiving, he talks about those who pays their vows, he said such people when they call on him in time of troubles he answers them. Who gets his assistance; surely not those who are robbing, surely not those who don’t honour him. Who gets his assistance, simply put; those who ask for it.
Jeremiah 33 v 3 he said call on me in the days of trouble and I will answer you, the bible says if you don’t ask you don’t get, why? He had helped somebody before who didn’t ask for help, when trouble came, that fellow said to God, did I ask you for help. You are the one who decided to help and that trouble now has come so you must be responsible. Genesis 3 v 9 -12 it was God who decide to give Adam a wife when the trouble came and God said Adam why have you done what I asked you not to do? He said the woman you gave me, I didn’t ask you for one, I didn’t say I need a wife, YOU gave me one. That is where the trouble is, that is the time God made of his mind, that he will no longer assist anybody who didn’t ask for it. That is why I have hurried over the sermon tonight, because we are going to spend time asking him tonight, because I know he is going to answer us tonight.
How many of you are ready to cry to the Almighty God tonight, I promise you one more time, by the time the sun rise, somebody here is going to celebrate.
And this is why you must give your life to Jesus Isaiah 59 v 1-2 it said the hand of the Lord is not shortened, that he cannot safe, neither is his ear heavy that he cannot hear, he said but your iniquity have separated you between you and your God, that he will not hear, in other words; he is ready to help, but if your sin will not allow him to hear your cry, how can he help? If he doesn’t hear what you are asking for, maybe you are asking for the fruit of the womb, or you are asking for, healing, you are asking for promotion, you are asking for victory and he cannot hear what you are asking for, how can he release it to you, that is why you must give your life to Jesus because his blood will was ha away your sins and your prayer will no longer be hindered. So if there is anyone here tonight, who is tired of the life of sin and you want God to answer your prayer, come and surrender your life to him, let his blood was h away your sin and watch as he begin to answer you prayer.
Those of you who want to give your life to Jesus, begin to come to the front, as you come begin to pray, ask the Almighty God to save your souls tonight, ask him to wash away your sins, tell him from tonight you will serve him say bye, bye to a life of sin and you will begin to live for Jesus Christ
Pray as you come, ask the Lord to save your soul, ask him to forgive you all your sins, promise him that you will serve him for the rest of your life …
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed, savior I want to thank you tonight, I want to thank you for this your children who are here, every sin they have ever committed, wash away in your blood in Jesus name, save their souls tonight in Jesus name, beginning from now, when they call on you answer them in Jesus name, you are the help of the helpless, help them in Jesus name. The grace to serve you till the end, give to them from tonight in Jesus name. Don’t let them go back into the world, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Write down your prayer points we are going to pray for one hour…
1. Praise him for past miracles, for various assistances he has given you, you want to praise him, you want to say God I want to thank you for the way you help me when I was little, thank you for helping me when no one could help me, thank you for protecting me when I didn’t even know what is called danger.
2. Father, please take my hand and lead me on
3. Father, I have no power of my own; please don’t abandon me to my enemies.
4. Father, don’t let the storm of life sweep me away
5. Father, please uphold me so that I will never fall and I will never fail
6. Father, please turn me to a channel of blessings; help me so I can help others.
7. Father, before this month is over , let me become a living testimony
8. After this seven, anything you want to ask God, you can add to it…

He will not allow the enemy to prevail over you, the enemy will never discover your secret, the storm of life will never sweep you away, if there is any storm in your life tonight, it will be stilled in Jesus name.
The peace of God that passes all understanding shall be yours from now on, the Almighty God will uphold you, you will not fall, you will not fail, you will never know failure again, the Almighty God will turn you to a channel of blessing, he will help you so that you will be able to help others. From now on, not only will you be able to carry your own burdens, you will be able to help others to carry their own burdens, before the end of this month, you will become a living testimony. Before the end of this month, you will sing how great is our God and that special request of your before the sun rises, shall become a testimony. And all those who says it will not be so, it will be so in their presence, the God who deliver Daniel, will deliver you from your enemies, those who are expecting you to die, long after their death you will still be around. Those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, this will be your month, those who are believing God form promotion, he will accelerate your promotion in Jesus name, every obstacle o your progress, shall be destroyed today, it shall be well with me, the Almighty God will fight for you and you too you will serve the Lord, your joy shall be full , you will never know sorrow again, there will never be tragedy in your family again, very, very soon you will celebrate and I will celebrate with you and you will celebrate with me, in Jesus name we have prayed.
If you received that let me hear you say halleluiah!

You are the mighty God, the great I am, halleluiah, halleluiah!
Almighty God, the creator of the heaven and the earth, the possessor of the earth, the joy of the whole universe, the beginning of all beginnings, the ending of all endings, the most high, the Almighty, the one who is greater than the greatest, older than the oldest, richer than the richest, wiser than the wisest, glory be to your holy name, father, glory be to your holy name, accept our worship in Jesus name. Tonight in all our lives, please show your greatness, show our power, show your love, show your kindness, show your mercy, and show your faithfulness. Like never before visit your children tonight, at the end of everything let your name be glorified. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen, let someone shout halleluiah!
Psalm 91v1 he that dwelt in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the almighty. How great is our God? Ecclesiastes 5 v 8 tells us that he is greater than the greatest and according to Daniel 4 v 34-35, compare to our God, every other person on earth is as nothing. When we talk about greatness, the bible have various ways of illustrating what greatness is all about; when it is talking about greatness it is talking about size. He was talking for example in Genesis, that the greater light to rule the day, the lesser light to rule the night.
When he was trying to tell us how great Goliath was, he described the helmet, the shield, the spear, how big, how wide. so how great is our God, let’s consider his size; nobody has ever seen God, but the bible tells us a little bit about his size, how long are his legs; he sits in heaven, his leg, his feet touches the earth. According to Isaiah 66 v 1 heaven his is stool, the earth is hi footstool that tells you how long his leg are. The bible tells us His arms are everlasting harm, his arms are so long, they are everlastingly long. His ears are so big, that when the whole world is praying at the same time, he can hear all of us. Psalm 65 v 2 says you that hear that hears prayers, unto you shall all flesh come.
So when we are talking about how great our God and we consider his stature, we can’t describe how big his head is, but we know how big his ears are; we know how long his leg are, we know how long his arm are. When we talk about greatness, the bible also refers to greatness in terms of power. In Exodus 18 v 11 the bible talks about hour God greater than all gods. Here he is telling us that he has all power more than all God put together, as a matter of fact in Psalm 62 v 11 he said God has spoken once, twice have I heard this that power belong to God. How powerful is our God? He is so powerful that according toMatthew 3 v 9 he said he is so powerful; he can even produce children out of stones.
When we talk about greatness, the bible also try to give us a hint concerning wealth; he talks about the woman of Shunem, In 2 king4 v 8-17 he talks about the great woman of Shunem, this great woman was wealthy. How wealthy is our God? Gen. 14 v 19 calls him the possessor of heaven and the earth, everything you can see in heaven or on earth they all belong to him, he so great that he said silver is mine, gold is mine, bible tells us that the street in his city are paved with Gold. He is so great that according to Philippians 4 v 19 he said my God shall supply all your need according to your riches in glory.
The first time I travel by air, from here to sierra Leon, it was during the day time, and I was seating by the window of the plane, and I was looking at the face of the window, and ai was seeing the town and villages in addition to oceans and God began to speak to me, he said Son looked down, in all these villages, in all these town, there are not only people, there are domestic animals, they are birds of all kind, look into the ocean, there are all kinds fish and all other creatures, he said do you know that I feed them all. He said never again must you doubt that I will provide for you.
And I want to assure somebody here today, no matter how difficult your financial situation, My God will take care of you.
When we talk about greatness, we are also talking about influence. When talking about the woman of Shunem, the Almighty God record for us that when the Prophet was asking this woman, what do you want me to do for you? You want me to give you a recommendation to the king, or the commander of chief of the armed forces, the woman said I don’t need assistance in that direction. The great woman is a woman of influence. How great is our God? According to Philippians 2 v 9 – 11
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said all the tubes that are blocked have been reopen.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said your business will soon move from walking to leaping.
He Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said from now on, I will see to it that you get adequate rewards for your labors.
Now you see what happen when you praise God, when you praise God he speaks.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he asks me to tell you, he ask me to tell you welcome to a new phase of joy.
The Lord said there is someone tonight; he said your new year begins today.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said for a long time to come; your song will be how grate is my God.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said your raining season will be far, far, longer than your dry season.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said I will shorten your night so that your sun can rise sooner.
I was saying in Philippians 2 v 9 – 11 it shows that our God have influence in heaven, influence on earth, influence under the earth. He has influence over the wind; he has influence over the sea. The Bible says in Mark 4 v 41 he said what manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him. He has influence over fire. He can turn the fiery furnace to an air condition room.
How great is our God, he can solve any problem, just by speaking a word, he will speak a word to you tonight and your life will never be the same again.
When we talk about greatness, we talk about achievement, what are the things he had already done. When we say somebody is great scholars; we are talking about how many papers he had already writing. When we talk about a great warrior, we are talking about how many battles he has fought and won. What make someone great could be linked to his achievements. In Exodus 14 v 21 – 28 He opened the red sea, he made a way where there is no one, he drown the enemy of his nation in just one night. He said to them, the enemy you see tonight you will never see them again. He’s done it before, he will do it again, in Exodus 17 v 1- 6 he brought water out of the rock; He produce something out of nothing. He brought satisfaction in an angle you cannot expect, he has done it before, he will do it again. He raised the dead, after he’s been in the grave for four days. He reversed the irreversible, he made the impossible, possible, he silence mockers, he showed that when he speaks even the dead can hear him and receives new life. How great is our God, he has done it before and he is going to do it again tonight.
He says he wants to answer prayer tonight, so am going to get out of is way very soon, but before we go to pray, his love is great, bible says in John 15 v 13 he said greater love have no man than this, that a man laid down his life for his friends. His mercy is great; the bible says as high as heaven is above the earth so is his mercy to those who fear him, his faithfulness is great, he said even if you don’t believe hi, he remain faithful because he cannot deny himself, let me just add this one before I get out of the way; his anger is also great. Hebrew 12 v 21 says our God is a consuming fire, so when he stretches forth his arm of love and you disregard it, when he says he wants to be merciful and you tell him to mind himself, when he says I want to help you and you say I don’t need your help. The moment he turned his back, there is very little you can do again.
How great is our God? When he breathes, a way can be opened in the red sea, when he touches the mountain; mountains begin to melt. If he should touch your head in anger, there will be nothing that will be left. That is why I want to appeal to those of you that are here tonight, that have not given your life to Christ, I don’t want you to delay those of us who want to pray because he says ‘I want to answer prayer tonight’. If you are in this auditorium now and you have not given your life to Jesus Christ, am going to give you only two minute to get to the front here, after two minutes and you are not already standing before me. we will go ahead, if you don’t believe that God is great, he has various ways of showing his greatness; he can show it in a positive way, he can show it in a negative way, but if you come to him, His love is available now, his mercy is available now, his pardon is available now. Even thought he is the consuming fire, if you come to him now, he will overlook whatever you have done, he will save your soul and give you a brand new beginning, so if you want to give your life to him come now…
Those of you in the front, call on this great God, ask him to be merciful unto you, save your soul, ask him to forgive all your sin, promise him that from now on you will serve him, ask him to be your savior and your Lord, talk to him now. The rest of us, lets stretch your arm towards these people and pray for them, that the great savior will include them in his salvation now, let’s pray for them…In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Savior I want to thank you for your word, I want to thank you for your promise that you want to answer prayer tonight, thank you for these people who have already come forward, everyone of them please receive in Jesus name, forgive in Jesus name, wipe away all their sins with your blood in Jesus name, save their souls tonight in Jesus name, please write their names in the book of life in Jesus name, from now on in every facet of their lives, show your greatness in Jesus name, and the grace to serve you till the end release to them in Jesus name. Thank you Almighty God in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. (Amen)
1. Let’s praise him one more time for his greatness.
2. Father, since you can hear all, please hears me tonight.
3. Show your greatness in my life tonight.
4. Then add your own prayer point to the one I have given you.
…In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Because God can hear all, he will hear you tonight, because he can do all things, he will do yours tonight, every impossibility in your life will become possible tonight; he will reverse the irreversible for you tonight. Because he can meet all needs; he will meet all your needs tonight in Jesus name. He will meet your physical needs, he will meet material needs, he will meet your marital needs, he will meet your spiritual needs. Because he is stronger than the strongest, he will deal with all your enemies tonight in Jesus name. All those who say you will not reach your goal; he will put them to shame in Jesus name. Because he is an unchangeable Lord, what he has done for others, he will do for you in Jesus name. Your testimonies will be mighty in Jesus name. In every facet of your life, he will show his greatness tonight in Jesus name. This will be the beginning of your joy, all your requests will become testimonies, it is well with you, so shall it be in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout halleluiah!

Let somebody shout halleluiah!
Tonight we want to talk about TRUE PROSPERITY. Our text will be taken from 3John v2 beloved above all things that thou mayest prosper even as thy souls prosper. Material prosperity is good Ecclesiastes 7 v 12 Material says that money is a defense;Proverbs 22 v 7 tells us that it is the rich that rules. Ecclesiastes 10 v 19 says that money answereth all things, when there is money, the answer has come. The elders have a saying that when I am not at home don’t take any decision, because if you take any decision, what are you to use to carry it out. That is why I am decreeing to those of you here tonight, that in the name that is above every other name, poverty will stay away from you.
But material prosperity is unreliable. Proverb 23 v 5 say riches can develop wings and fly away, in other words anyone who is rich today may not be rich tomorrow. I pray for you that those of you who have clothes to wear today, you will not end up wearing rags, those of you who have food to eat today, you will not end up hungry in Jess name.
Material prosperity those not satisfy Ecclesiastes 5 v 10 says it doesn’t matter how much you have you will not be satisfied; he said those who love silver will not the satisfied with silver. He who loves gold will not be satisfied with gold. He said it is all vanity. No matter how rich you are; you want more, you want more.
Material prosperity can be problematic; Ecclesiastes 5 v 12 says that the abundance of the rich may not even allow him to sleep. There are certain things that those who are not very rich enjoy, he said that the poor man no matter how little the food he gets to eat , eat it and he is satisfy and sleep but the rich man because he is calculating this vehicle has not yet arrived, I don’t know what is happening in my factory he might not be able to sleep.
The bible says material prosperity might even block his way to heaven in Matthew 19 v 23 – 24 the bible says it is easy for a Carmel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to go to heaven. Why? 1 Timothy 6 v 9-10 the bible says those who want to be rich fall into temptations; they fall into snare, they fall into foolish lust and if they are not careful it would end in destruction that is why he says the love of money is the root of all evil. The kind of wealth that you will have that will lead you to destruction; I decree to you tonight, you will never have it.
Then there is a better prosperity; and that is physical prosperity; health! The elders have a saying that the one who have good health has everything, the devil said it and God agree with him in Job 2 v 3 -5 the devil said to God, Job has lost everything material and he is still saying my God is good, he said touch his body, give him some pain, give him sickness, and you will see what he will do , he said a man will do everything he has just for good health.
Good health is far more precious than money, those of you who are here tonight therefore, suffering from any ache or pain in the mighty name of Jesus Christ before we leave here, you will be well in Jesus name.
In 2King 5 v 1 when the bible was describing Naaman, he told us how successful he was; he has money, he was popular, he was well known but he was a leper, that single but destroyed everything else.
Every ‘but’ in your life will go away in Jesus name.
Physical prosperity is better than material prosperity but physical prosperity is limited. The bible says wisdom is better than strength, so if you are strong and you don’t have wisdom you are still a fool, not only that physical prosperity is also transient, it doesn’t stay forever, as you grow older you grow weaker.
Ecclesiastes 12 v 1 – 7 tells us as you grow older certain things begin to disappear, the teeth began to decrease in number, the legs become weaker, the eyes become dimmer ass you grow steadily on your journey back home. For example in 2 Samuel 21v 15 – 17 the bible tell us of how David went to war and grew fain and a giant was about to kill him, But thank God somebody came and help him and they had to tell him, you won’t go to war with us anymore. Now here was a man , who when he was young alone face Goliath while others were hiding but old age has come , he was no longer as strong has he used to be and needed somebody to help him, or else he will have been killed in battle. So physical prosperity is better than material prosperity but he doesn’t last, how strong you are when you wake up in the morning is not how strong you will fell in the evening after you have work the whole day.
And there is the mental prosperity which is better than physical prosperity because the bible says wisdom is better than strength Proverbs 4 v 7 the bible says wisdom in the principal thing, the most important thing you should get is wisdom, he said with all your getting make sure you get wisdom. In Ecclesiastes 7 v 12 where he says money is a defense, he said wisdom is also a defense, and then he went further to say that the defense given by wisdom is a superior one because wisdom gives life. So we have material prosperity, which is less than physical prosperity, which is less than mental prosperity, but then mental prosperity is limited the bible says in2 Timothy 3 v 7 he said there are some people who are ever learning but never come to the knowledge of truth.
At times too much knowledge can be a problem, people can learn so much that they even loose their blessings, learning is good, wisdom is super , but I have discovered in my little journey with the Lord that the illiterate gets miracle faster than those of us who are learned. Their faith is pure; those of us who are educated will want to analyze everything. We want to examine it with our brain; when you lay hands on me in prayer; where is the anointing coming in, is it the right hand or through the left ? Now if it comes in through the right hand, does it go thought the leg , we want to understand and while we are analyzing God is gone. Many at times we learn so much that the things that must be accepted by accepted by faith becomes a problem to us.
On one occasion I had to speak to some academicians on the baptism of the Holy Spirit, after I preached I said go ahead and receive the baptism, one of the last to receive was a professor, the wife who didn’t read all that much got the baptism fast, at a stage when I asked them to stop, the husband was asking the wife, have you received?, the wife said yes. The husband said “what did you say? How did you join the words together?”. If your brain is standing between you and the blessing of God, may the Almighty God speak to your brain tonight in Jesus name.
Wisdom is good, mental prosperity is beautiful but it can be lost 1 Corinthians 1 v 19-20 talked about God asking a question; he said where is the wisdom of the wise, he said because he said I will destroy the wisdom of the wise.
The Lord said there is someone here this night, he said by the time those who put you in prison tomorrow morning, they would discovered that you have already escaped.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said the sky over your head is very dark, he said I must tell you the showers of blessings will be mighty.
Daniel 4 v 34, Nebuchadnezzar said my understanding returned to me, that means the understanding left; there was a time when he didn’t even know what was happening anymore, when he became like an animal for seven years, his understanding forsook him, wisdom can disappear.
Am sure I have told you the story before of things that happen when I was in grammar school. That there was a man sitting in rags, sitting not too far from the gate, anytime we wanted to learn real history; get him a keg of palm wine, by the time he has taken two cups, he will say what history do you want? American history, European history, British history, if we say British history he will say from one what time to what time? And then he will begin and we will be the one who will be stopping him because he was a professor of history before something goes wrong. Am praying for those of you here today, your senses will not depart you.
Mental prosperity is good but it can be problematic Ecclesiastes 1 v 18 says in much wisdom, there is much grief, he that increases knowledge increase sorrow, that is coming from Solomon who was suppose to be the wisest man ever live.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said before this month ends you will sing victory, victory, victory halleluiah! 4ce Jesus conquer the devil pata pata! If you are the one let me hear you shout halleluiah!
In Ecclesiastes 2 v 16 Solomon said vanity upon vanity , all is vanity, he said what happens to the professor is what happened to the one who never went to school, he said because both of them will die.
That brings us to what we call true prosperity, and that is spiritual prosperity. In 3John v 2 the bible says I wish above all things that you prosper , I wish above all things that you will be in health but that is as your soul prospers. Psalm 35 v 27 says God has pleasure in the prosperity if his people, he wants you to be rich, he wants you to be healthy but it is only as you souls prosper. That is why in Matthew 6 v 28 -33 he says seek ye first the kingdom and his righteousness and all things will be added unto you. Meaning what? If you prosper spiritually, all other things will follow; good health for example. Exodus 15 v 26 God said if you hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all that he commands you; he said he will make sure you are not sick at all, he said you listen to me, observe what I say, do it, he said forget about sickness, he said I will be your physician, I will be the Lord that heals thee.
In Mark 2 v 1 – 12 they brought a man to Jesus who was paralyzed from neck downwards, when Jesus saw him, he said to him first and foremost, son thy sins are forgiven you, let’s get sin out of the way and then I can now say to you, rise up, take your bed and go home. The moment sin is gone, healing can flow in.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said the enemy will never again subdue you
In John 5 v 2 – 14 God healed a man who had been sick for thirty eight years and when he saw him in the temple rejoicing, he said Oga, you have physical prosperity now but go and sin no more. Begin a life of spiritual prosperity, otherwise something worse will happen.
I pray for all those who are sick here tonight, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, the Almighty God will heal you tonight, but be careful, spiritual prosperity must be there, your determination to live Holy must be strong, that is the only way you can retain your healing, that is the only way you can remain healthy.
And some people who go to prophets, prophets who will tell you don’t worry, I will make sure you are healed, they perform one trick or the other and you seems to get your healing and they never say anything to you about living a life that is devoid of sin, they are preparing you for trouble, spiritual prosperity must b establish before your healing can become permanent.
Spiritual prosperity will bring in material prosperity Deuteronomy 28 v 1 – 2 again God said if you will hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do what he commands you, He said he will cause blessing to pursue you and overtake you. You focus on spiritual prosperity, he said live material prosperity to him, he said prosperity material will begin to pursue you when you are running away from it, they will become so much that you will say God this is too much, Deuteronomy 28 v 11 he said he will command his blessings upon you so much that you will be lending g to nations, nations will come to you for help.
I want to prophesy to someone here today, in a very short time from now, you will be richer than state in Nigeria, you will be richer than some nations even in the world.
Many of us don’t take God seriously when he says in Malachi 3 v 10 when he says bring all the tithe, bring all of it into my house, he just test me thereby if I won’t open the windows of heaven and poor you a blessing that you won’t have a enough room to receive. All you need is just one breakthrough that comes from the Almighty God, and you will never need again.
I am praying for someone here today that as you begin to prosper spiritually, as you begin to obey God, as you begin to run away from sin, that kind of blessings that you will begin to say to God, this is too much will begin to follow you in Jesus name.
Spiritual prosperity brings in power, brings in influence; ability to affect things, in 2king 2 v 9 -15 a young man has an opportunity to chose; Elijah was about to go and he ask his young follower, Elisha, what do you want before I go, now Elisha was aware that whatever his master asked from God, God will answer by fire, no doubt about it. Elisha could have said, I want to become the richest man in the history of mankind; you are the one who asked me to ask , I have asked, and Elijah would have said done and if he said done, God has the ability has the ability to turn all the stones around Elisha to diamond but that boy has supernatural wisdom, he said what I want is spiritual prosperity, I want double the power that you have, double the spirit on you. Even Elijah had to look at him and said what kind of boy are you , you have asked for a hard thing but the boy got it, but do you know what followed in verse 16 all the colleagues of Elisha, all the sons of the prophet, they came and boy down to Elisha.
I prophesy to someone here today, as you begin to pursue spiritual prosperity, your colleagues will come and bow down before you.
Good news for someone here, the Lord said your marriage will soon become a model for other people.
The Lord said there is someone here this night he said you will soon enter into a long season of refreshing.
In 2King 4 v 8 – 17 this same Elisha, who has spiritual prosperity; he was just minding his own business when a great woman who had a lot of material prosperity, stopped him and said come into my house and eat. And he told her who told you I need food? I am not hungry, if I look in it is because I am fasting, because I am seeking the face of the Lord. The woman said yes I know but please just come into my house and eat.
I prophesy into somebody’s life tonight, very soon people will begging you in order to bless you.
So Elisha went, eat in the house of the woman, enjoy the food and kept coming back for more and then the woman built him a house and then one day, he called the woman, what can I do for you in return? Do you want me to introduce you to the king? You want me to introduce you to the commander in Chief? What exactly do you need? This is a man who had spiritual prosperity; he becomes the controller of kings, controller of generals.
I pray for you tonight, before you leave this world, you will be controlling kings!
The woman said I don’t need anything, I am materially sufficient. Then Elisha discovered that she was barren, that there was something all her money could not buy and one word from Elisha, brought that thing money could not buy into the life of the woman.
I ask the disciples yesterday, I said suppose you have to choose between; 1 billion naira, or let’s say one billion dollars and the ability to raise the dead, which one will you choose? Let me hear you speak
I was talking to my pastors some years ago, we were discussing the issue of transfer, I said if God speak to me today and said my son? I want you to resign as general overseer, but you will remain a pastor in the church and I want to transfer you to Kutuwenji, you get to Kutuwenji you will still go to a village somewhere there. I will say “will you go with me? , if he says ‘yes’. I will ask for permission; let me pack one suitcase, let my wife pack two; because she will have to take some cooking materials. Because I know, within one year, that village Kutuwenji will not be able to contain crowd, because if God is there His miracles are happening, people will travel from Lagos, they will come from Ibadan, they will come from everywhere.
I am praying for somebody here today, that prosperity that brings in every other prosperity, the Almighty God will bring it to you tonight in Jesus name.
The bible says in Job 36 v 11 he says if they will obey and serve him, they will spend their days in pleasure and their years in prosperity. The Almighty God doesn’t want you to live in poverty, he doesn’t want you to live in sickness, he doesn’t want you to live in bondage, he doesn’t want you to go mad. It will not bring to his name. God knows that the rich rules over the poor, God knows that the borrower is a slave to the lender. He wants it to be well with you but he wants you to pursue spiritual prosperity first, the problem is that we are pursuing the wrong thing. We are chasing shadow instead of the real thing.
Mark 8 v 36, he said what does it profit a man, if he gain the whole world and loses his soul?. Don’t forget brethren, we came naked we will go naked, let me assure you, no matter how rich you are when you die, you cannot take anyone with you, but if heaven is certain, if you have a glimpse of heaven, you won’t even want to take anything from here to there. What do we have here that you want to take there? The best gold here, is not welcome in heaven.
I prayed that God will open your eyes tonight that you will catch a glimpse of heaven. Don’t go yet just get a glimpse of heaven then you will understand what am talking about. I have seen a little of it that is what is pushing me, that is why am busy working for God, that is why I am winning soul everyday because the reward is greater over there. Because I want to be spend and be spent. Because what I cannot take there let me use it here so that I can prepare for there. I give you one illustration then we will go and pray.
Several years ago, a friend of mine and I traveled to one country, Singapore to be exact, he was a rich man, he had a golden ring, very expensive, he was always showing it to me so that I know he has that ring. We got to Singapore and somebody showed us a factory where they manufactured golden ring, my friend wants to go there so we went, when we got there we saw gold, various categories of gold and then my friend wanted to show them he has gold. He said I want you to help me clean my ring, they asked him what carat? And I think he said 22 carat, they said sorry sir, we don’t touch that kind of gold here. Our machines are not made for 22 carat, sorry sir we begin from 24 carat. I looked at my friend, he shook his head and sighed.
When you get to heaven the carat of the gold there is nothing found on earth. The gold there is so pure you can see through it, I have caught a glimpse of it , what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and losses his own soul. Do you know there is a mansion waiting for every Christian in heaven and it is build with solid divine gold.
There is a song we sing, I don’t know how to translate it very well into English, but it simple says don’t let me use this earth to destroy heaven, don’t let the pursuit of material prosperity rob you of what is waiting for you in heaven. Seek first the kingdom of God, seek his righteousness, seek spiritual prosperity and every other thing will be added unto you.
So those of you who have not given your life to Jesus, why don’t you begin the correct journey, why don’t you begin the pursuit of true prosperity why don’t give your life to Jesus first, let him wash you in his blood, let him save your soul. Believe me honestly if you begin to seek his kingdom, and his righteousness, every other thing will begin to follow rapidly.
So if you want to give your life to Jesus come now, if you think you are rich, you don’t know the meaning of wealth until you give your life to Jesus. If you have the whole word and you die in your sin and you go to hell, you will be the greatest of all losers.
So come and give your life to Jesus now. You can hold the world and miss your home in heaven, the choice is yours. You can pursue a life of sin and loose heaven the choice is yours, but seek first the kingdom of God and every other thing will be added. It is the blessings of the Lord that maketh rich and adds no sorrow. It is when you are serving the Lord in holiness and purity that you can have blessings that have no sorrow.
There are those who are rich but who can’t eat, but God can give food and also give you good health, material health can fly away spiritual health with stay with you forever. The one who is healed can be sick again, but if you live a life of holiness you can enjoy divine health forever.
Those of you who are already in front, lift your voice to the Lord and cry unto him, ask him to save your soul, tell him from now on you will serve him, you will seek his …ask him for mercy, ask him for salvation and the rest of us let’s stretch our hands towards these people that the merciful God will be merciful unto them and forgive them their sins. Pray as you come, pray for salvation… promise the Lord that from now on you will serve Him… Thank you father, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
Father Almighty I want to thank you, I want to thank you for your word, we want to thank you for these your children who have come forward, please receive 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 live in Jesus name. Father even as they begin to seek your kingdom and its righteousness, anytime they call on you for anything, answer them by fire. And the graces to serve you till the end, release to them in Jesus name. Thank you father in Jesus mighty name we have prayed, amen.
If I assure you tonight that whatever prayers you pray tonight will be answered tonight, how many of you will then be willing to pray?
Write down these prayer points:
1. Praise God for what he has done for you.
2. Father, don’t let me ever beg for food or beg for clothing.
3. Father, from now on , let me enjoy divine health, don’t let me spend on sickness again.
4. Father, the kind of blessings that I want must be blessings without sorrow.
5. Father, the kind of peace of God that passes all understanding, let that be my portion.
6. Everything I need to serve you, provides for me; good health, material abundance, divine wisdom, everything I need to serve you provide for me.
7. Anoint me too, use me to heal the sick, to set the captives free and to raise the dead, use me to make the barren fruitful.
8. Let your purpose for my life be fulfilled completely.
9. Smile on me forever, father just smile on me.
10. Your own personal request.
We are going to pray for one hour… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
The Almighty God will grant your request, for the rest of your life, you will never beg for food. You will never wear rags again, you will never be homeless, you will enjoy divine health, you will never spend on sickness again. Disease will stay away from your family; the kind of blessing that adds no sorrow will be your portion. In your home, there will be peace, in your place of work there will be peace, in your churches there will be peace. The peace of God that passes all understanding will be your portion, everything you need to serve God, the Lord will provide for you; material prosperity, he will provide for you, physical prosperity he will provide for you, mental prosperity he will provide for you. The wisdom you need to serve him, he will provide for you. He will anoint you, he will use you to heal the sick, he will use you to set the captives free, he will use you to raise the dead, he will use you to make the barren fruitful, the purpose of God for your life will be fulfilled.
The perfect will of God will be done in your life. from now on, you will enjoy the favor of God, God will smile on you, he will smile on your family, any curse that is in your family is destroyed tonight, that kind of blessing s that you will say this is too much, God will release unto you. Working without fruit will come to an end in your life tonight. Beginning from today, whatever you touch will prosper, you will be a vessel unto honor in Gods hand, you will become a terror to the devil, wherever you go miracles will happen. You will be hearing clearly from God and you will not lose your mansion in Jesus name, and your personal request of tonight, before the sun rises tomorrow, shall become a testimony in Jesus name, the Lord will bless you and your joy will be full and you will serve the Lord till the end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout halleluiah!

I want you to lift your voice to God and say father, please let tonight mark a major turning point in my life let’s talk to the Almighty God… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
You are the mighty God, the great I am, Halleluiah!2ce
You are the mighty God, the great I am, Halleluiah!2ce
You are the king of kings, the Lord of lords Halleluiah!
You are the mighty God, the great I am, Halleluiah!2ce
Eternal rock of ages, king of kings and lord or lords, the ancient of days, the I am that I am, the rock of ages, the lion of the tribe of Judah, the holy one of Israel, the alpha and omega, the beginning and the ending, the one who is the one who was and the one who is to come.Wonderful, counselor, mighty God, everlasting father, prince of peace. You are greater than the greatest, you are older than the oldest, you are better than the best, you are wiser than the wisest, you are richer than the richest, you are the almighty God, glory be to your holy name, accept out worship in Jesus name.
Tonight in your own wonderful way, visit your children, like never before, visit all your children. Meet all needs tonight, let our joy overflow tonight, at the end of everything, let your name be glorified. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout halleluiah!
Isaiah 40 v 28- 31 have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the creator of the ends of the earth, neitherfaints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youth shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
There are seven categories of motion; there are seven ways of making progress. Number one is total stagnation, no motion at all, in Mark 2 v 1 – 12 we have the story of a man who was paralytic; he is paralyzed from his neck down, he couldn’t move, he couldn’t do anything for himself unless he was helped. Somebody like that is in what we call total stagnation state.
Next to that is crawling; in John 9 v 1-7 the bible tells us the story of a man who was born blind, Jesus saw him, spat on the ground, made some mud out of it and anointed where his eyes were suppose to be and told him to go to the pool Siloam and wash, he washed and came back seeing. When a blind man has to go somewhere, he cannot move fast. This blind man one way or the other managed to find his way to the pool. Crawling means there is motion but very slow and very limited.
The third stage is walking and walking means you are moving now, your progress is not really hindered , is just that you are better than the one crawling but you are not doing too well either. When we where little child, when we want to begin to make motion; we start by crawling, and then later on we come on to walking. Majority of people are in this level of motion. They move but very, veryslowly. They go from month to months just managing to exist. For those of you who are listening to me tonight who are in that category things are about to change for the best.
The next stage is leaping; when you leap, it means a short outburst of energy, you go up but then you come down. It is like that of a business man who gets a contract maybe once in three years. In Act 3 v 1 -8 the bible tells us of the lay man was healed, he started by walking and the he moved on to leaping. Leaping even though it’s just a short upward motion and then coming down, it is still farbetter than ordinary walking. I know at least somebody here today who will go home leaping for joy.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said the cloud that is covering your vision is been removed.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is a man here today he said your potency is been restored.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said you are afraid that you may lose your miracle, he asked me to tell you this one will be permanent.
Stage number five in motion is running, now running means you are making steady speedy progress.In Genesis 26 v 12 -14 the bible tells us the story of Isaac, who sowed in the land of Gerar and that year he reaped a hundred fold return. And the Lord blessed him and the bible say and the man waxed great and grew and moved forward until he became very great. That is an example of running, steady progress, speedy progress, continuous progress and I am prophesying to someone here today;beginning from now, your business will begin to run, your ministry will begin to run. In every sphere of your life there will be steady progress.
And then next to running is flying, when we talk about flying we are talking about total unhindered motion. The journey from here to Abuja by road, if you are to run, for a very strong man, would takeyou at least two days but when you fly, it takes less than one hour. Those of you who are already running before tomorrow morning you will be flying. We have several examples here but maybe one or two will do.
The Almighty God said there is somebody here today; he said I will put your enemy to sleep until you escape.
The Lord asked me to tell someone, he said before the end of this month the storm will be over.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said some powerful people are about to take some decision concerning you, he asked me to tell you not to worry that he is the God of all flesh.
Daddy says there are some people here you need spare parts; some needs new eyes, some need new brains, some needs new wombs. The Lord ask me to tell you just lift up your hands and receive your own now, just say Lord I thank you, thank you for my new spare parts, go ahead and tell him, because very soon you are going to testify. New hands, new eyes, new legs, new lungs, new liver, new spare parts, newkidneys. Let me hear somebody shout halleluiah!
So in 1 Samuel 16 v 11- 13 we see the story of David he woke up a shepherd boy before the evening he was a king. Now that is flying, that is speedy progress, far, far beyond ordinary running. Tell your neighbor from now on I will fly.
Again there is a stage seven, you see when the bird flies, its spent his own energy to fly. Stage seven is to be carried in a plane and then fly. In that case you make no effort you just seat down and you keep flying. Those who have travelled by the plane will tell you, no sweating, you seat down, you are eating, you are drinking, before you know it you have arrived.
There is somebody here today that the Almighty God will carry on his eagles wing and without any efforts on your side, he will take you to your goal.
He has done it before in Exodus 19 v 3 -4 when they brought the children of Israel out of bondage, he carries them on eagle wings, all their effort could not have freed them from Pharaoh but God intervened and because God intervened, they were able to not just to leave bondage; God placed them where the enemy could no longer touch them. In the name that is above every other name, that level where the enemy will no longer be able to touch you, God will take you there tonight. That level where you will no longer need to beg for anything, the Almighty God will take you there.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; he said you will not need medical attention for a long, longtime.
Now when the bird is flying, if he is carrying his food or anything with it, he has to carry that along, but when you are flying in a plane, the plane that is carrying you is also carrying your load. And when you read Isaiah 53 v 4 – 5 it tells you that the Almighty God is not only able to carry you, he is able to carry your burdens too. I can assure somebody here tonight, because you came; all your burdens shall be carried by the Almighty God.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said I have a surprise package for you that will daze you. A surprise package so big, that long after you get it, you will still think you a dreaming.
Now very briefly, we need to understand that a bird fly with two wings; when a bird has only one wing it can fly, you need the two wings of the eagle and this is where I want to spend a few minute so that we will understand fully what the Almighty God wants to do for us. When you read 1 Corinthians 1 v 22- 24 it tells you about the two wings that you need if you want to enjoy this wonderful flight.
He said the Jews require a sign, the Greeks seek after wisdom. The Jews they want miracle signs and wonders, the Greeks; wisdom. But then he said you need both, and both are to be found in Jesus. He said Jesus the wisdom of God and the power of God. The power gives the miracles; the wisdom gives the other wing.
We are very use to signs and wonders, in the Redeemed Christian church of God we see it every day, we’ve heard testimonies tonight, we have heard of the sister who was paralyzed, who said to the husband just get me a picture of daddy, got the picture and became whole immediately.
Daddy has nothing to do with that, I didn’t know what was happening, that is a sign that is a miracle. We have heard of someone who took a handkerchief that we bless to her son that the doctor said thereis nothing more we can do for this kidney fellow and he got a brand new kidney; that is a sign.
You heard about the man whose wife’s kidney fail, liver fail, wife was in a comma. He took an handkerchief to her, she walk out of the hospital with brand new kidney and brand new liver that is a sign.
Every miracle you need, every sign from God you will get it tonight in the mighty name of Jesus .
The area where many of us are deficient is the area of wisdom, we want benefits without responsibilities. Your bird cannot fly with one wing, Isaiah 1 v 19 says if you are willing andobedient, you will eat the good of the land. The good of the land is available; it’s your own benefit. Your responsibility is you must be willing and obedient.
When we go through the scriptures, we see responsibility and benefit balancing out, some of us want the power of God, Act 1 v 8 says you will receive power provided you are willing to evangelize. You will receive power and be my witness. Some of us want anointing, we want to be able to just wave our hands and the blind will begin to see, we hear testimony that shake us and we say w want anointing too.
We just had an holy ghost night in Dublin before we came for the convention and one of the testimonies that got everybody jumping and climbing was that of a woman, she has been barren for avery long time and have heard the testimony of people who said they were barren and they sat on the chair we sat on and then they became pregnant, so one day, when we finished the programme,everybody was rushing to go and seat on the chair and then one man took the chair away, the woman was sad. But then she had a brain wave and said the pulpit is there, he was at the pulpit, so she went to the pulpit and begin to rub her stomach against the pulpit, that month she became pregnant and when she was testifying she showed us three children two boys and a girl, as we were rejoicing, I looked at the eyes of some of my pastors and I could read what was going on in their mind; God give us that kind of anointing!
How many of you want that kind of anointing? May you receive it tonight in Jesus name, but it is conditional Hebrew 1 v 9, he said because you love righteousness and you hate iniquity that is why God your God has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows. You want an anointing, you must balance it with holiness, anointing without holiness is like a machine gun in the hand of a mad man, Samson has anointing but he lack holiness, it destroyed him. The blessing that will destroy you, you will never get it in Jesus name.
Some people wants victory but they don’t want to pay the price. Victory is available, the Almighty God wants you to be victorious but if you read James 4 v 7 the bible said it clearly if you want victory over Satan, you must first of all submit to God.
Submission must go hand in hand with victory, submit yourself first to God, then resist the devil and he will flee from you, many of us don’t want to submit to authority and yet we want to and expect him to leave it is not going to happen, because a bird doesn’t fly with one wing. Submission must come hand in hand with victory. Many of us wants breakthroughs but we know Malachi 3 v 10 he said you want a breakthrough? He said bring all the tithes to my house, we don’t want to tithe but we want God to open the windows of heaven, And bring in just one breakthrough, it is not going to happen because a bird does not fly with one wing.
You meet the conditions of God; he will meet the other side. Promotion must work hand in hand with diligence.
The Lord said there is someone where tonight, he said I will replace your entire digestive system.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said what people are saying about you now is that the sun of your family is set. God asked me to tell you as the sun is rising tomorrow morning, the sun of your family will rise again.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said you will understand wheni tell you, He said the flow stopped because you drifted away from Him, He asked me to tell you, because you have decided to come back to hm, the flow will begin again.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I assure you; from now on you will enjoy my peace.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said at long last, the spring that is in you will begin to produce a big river.
Promotion will go ahead with diligence Proverb 22 v 29 seeth thou a man diligent in his business, he will stand before kings and not before mean men. Many of us wants to prosper, we want to become great but we don’t want to work, it is not going to happen, God is not a magician, he is a miracle worker, he is a rewarder of those who are diligent. Hebrew 11 v 6 God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him. You want to make first class but you don’t want to study, it is not going to happen, you must learn to work hard. You are the one delaying the blessings God has for you, because you are too lazy, God almighty want you to wake up, if you wake up now and decide that from now on you will begin to work hard, by the time we come again next year, you will know that the God we serve is the Almighty.
He opened a door for you and he expect you to finish that assignment for one month, you are still on it for one year, how is he going to give you another one. And yet there are doors that the Almighty God wants to open. I gave someone an assignment; get me a little fish pound and they’ve been on it formonths. I went to them one day and say I know you will finish within one year, they replied no sir, we will finish within nine month, the work of two weeks!
How many of you want to reach the top? How many of us will stop being lazy, Jesus Christ said, my father work hitherto and I work, the Almighty God is still working till now, so what excuse are you going to give for not working?
Anyone who is going to because an excellent person, someone who will excel, according to 1Corthinas9v 24-27 anyone who is going to excel must be self discipline. You must keep your body under. If you are going to excel, you must be self discipline, don’t let us deceive ourselves; greatness is available, there is plenty of room at the top, the problem is, are you willing to do the work that will qualify you for the top?
Some of you will say Daddy, what is happening tonight, I will tell you what is happening, tonight, is going to mark a new beginning for somebody. God has given me a little glimpse to the future, He is about to raise up some great people and I want you too to be one of them, how many of you want to be great? Are you really ready to be great? Nobody else will tell you the truth if I don’t tell you, I don’t want to be popular, so if you don’t like me anymore it doesn’t matter but you must reach the top.
Anyone who wants to be preeminent, anyone who wants to mount with wings like eagle cannot be lazy, Isaiah 40 v 31 says it is they that wait upon the Lord that are renewed their strength, they are the one who will mount with wings as eagles. I told you the highest level of motion is to be carried, the one who will carry you on the flight is Jesus Christ, he said inJohn 15 v 5, he said without me you can do nothing, if I don’t carry you, you won’t get there.
In Philippians 4 v 13 he said I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, the aircraft that will carry you is Christ, he will be the one who will do the work, but he expects you to do only one thing: wait on him. We don’t want to pray and we want miracles, we want signs and wonders, it’s not going to happen, you pray for five minutes and you say that is enough, God is not your house boy, he is the King of kings, he is the Lord of lords, you must learn to wait on Him.
I remembered one occasion; the president said he wanted to see me, not the present one. He gave me an appointment for 11, I arrived at 10, he didn’t see me until 1pm… suppose am the one who needed to see Him… and he saw me at one because I threatened to leave, I got up and told the secretary, tellMr. President, I have been here for three hours, there are sick people waiting for me, I am going. Now I could only say that because I wasn’t the one who needed help, he was the one who need my help at that time. If I was the one who need his help even if he saw me by 9pm I will wait. How many of you know that the almighty God is greater than any president, one miracle from him that is all, but you don’t want to waiting on him, you pray for two minutes and you think that is enough.
I have told you the story before, we had a convention, I have finished everything, very tired, I told my wife, I don’t want to be disturb, I want to rest. I was so tired, I got to the bed and I was almost fast asleep immediately. Soon as I left for my room, a woman came from the north, asked my children, is papa in? And since they can’t lie they said yes, but he said he is not seeing anybody. The woman said is he in? he said fine, I will seat down here until he comes out. They said to her he is not coming out today, the woman said who said today? I said is he in? she said that’s all. They told my wife, they gave her food, thinking after that she will go, she sat down there, finally my wife came and said I know you are tired, but you better add this to your tired, because this woman said she is not going anywhere, I had to come out in my pajamas to come and attend to her. God is not on a journey, but how many of you are ready to tell God, am not going anywhere until you solve my problem. Because time is gone we will not do, what we have been doing since Monday, we are not going to ask you to pray for one hour, but at least twenty minutes, you are going to stand on your feet, if you like you can sleep, nobody is going to stop you, if you want you can kneel, but for the next twenty minutes,
You are going to lift your voice to the Almighty God, and say father, I am going to stay with you until my joy is full, … and then begin to tell him all the things you want God to do for you. I am giving you just twenty minute… ask everything you can continue your prayer… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed, God will answer you tonight, he will open the windows of heaven to you tonight, that which you have been asking for all these years; you will receive it tonight in Jesus name. And your testimony shall be great. So shall it be, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
In the mighty name of Jesus, I fly over every mountain, every mountain of sorrow, over mountain of failure, over every mountain of fruitless effort, over every mountain blocking my way… and so shall it be in the name of Jesus, will you please lay the handkerchief on your own head, and remember the just shall live tonight and whatever you say tonight, it is established forever, talk now

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. (Amen)
If you are born in May shout another halleluiah!
By the grace of God in June we will have a very special Holy Ghost service and we will be discussing THE SECRET OF ANSWERED PRAYERS.
That tells you that’s one Holy Ghost service, you must not miss at all. You need to come and learn the secrets of answered prayers and then the Saturday following that one by the grace of God, all over the world; all our children will go out for evangelism. Every one of us will go out as we leave here; to go and win souls for the Almighty God and you will see what God will do for you in return in Jesus name.
Let’s open our Bibles to Psalm 102 v 13 Thou shall arise and have mercy on Zion (you can put your name there) for the time to favor her yea, the said time is come.
If you receive that let me hear you say amen loud and clear.
Tonight we want to talk about OPERATING UNDER DIVINE FAVOR.
The pastor who spoke before have done an extremely beautiful job. And I just want to add a little bit to what he had already said, from this text we discovered that when a man’s time of favor comes God will do two basic things; number one he will arise, number two; he will show mercy. Only those two basic things, thou will arise and show mercy for the time to favor her yea, the said time has come. When the time for favor comes, God does two basic things.
Number one he arises, now Psalm 68 v 1-3 says let God arise and his enemies will scatter. Now when we will say the enemies of God will scatter the question that comes to your mind immediately is; who are the enemies of God?
When you look at Act 9 v 1-5 you discovered that the enemies of God are the enemies of his children. There was a man called Saul of Tarsus he was persecuting Christians, he was throwing them to prison, he was killing them, he was doing all manners of evil against them and then one day he got permission from the leaders to go to Damascus, that if he should find any Christian there at all he will take them bound to Jerusalem so that they can be dealt with.
On the way the Lord met him and knocked him down from the Horse. Do you know those who are persecuting you are about to be knocked down. Then God spoke to him and Saul, Saul, why persecuted thou me? And then Saul said how can I be persecuting you, I don’t even know who you are.
Then God said it is me you are persecuting, when you are persecuting my children. You see those who are tormenting children of God they don’t know that they are in serious danger because they are actually fighting against God and when God arises his enemies will scatter.
So if I were you I will congratulate the man beside you and say your enemies are about to be scattered.
When you go through the Scriptures you will see several examples of what happen when God arose, for example if you read Exodus 3 v 7-8 it is when God arose for Israel that there deliverance from Egypt came, he said to Moses he said I have seen the afflictions of my children, I have seen what the Egyptians are doing unto them.
You see many at times, we think God does not see, but God is not blind, everything that is happening here on earth he is observing and when it is time in his infinite wisdom to arise, he will arise.
And I have a feeling that the time for him to arise is now. The time for him to arise is now, he is about to arise for me, he is about to arise for me, he is about to arise for his church, he is about to arise for Nigeria, he is about to arise for the world. If you believe that let me hear you say amen.
When you read Judges 15 v 1 -15 it tells you the story of Samson dealing with the Philistines and then the Philistines decide they were going to revenge and the children of Israel decided; let’s sacrifice Samson.
His relatives came to him they bound him and they handed him over to the Philistines.
I once preached a sermon on when God is silent. When they got Samson on the mountain top and they were bounding him, God didn’t say anything, when they were binding him; God kept quiet.
When they handed him over to the enemy; God didn’t say a word, until the enemies began to rejoice, thinking that now we got him, then God will arose. God will arise for somebody here today.
And when God arose suddenly all the ropes bounding Samson, the bible say it was burnt as if it touched fire and somehow he landed where there was a jaw bone of an ass already waiting. Do you know the weapon that God will use to deal with your enemies is within your reach right now?
And before we knew what was happening; one thousand of the enemies lay dead and the others fled. When you read 1 Samuel 17 v 1 -51 for forty days Goliath was terrorizing Israel; he was getting up in the morning terrorizing them, in the evening terrorizing them and God kept quiet.
But one day, God arose. And when God arose in the morning, by the night time the head of Goliath was already gone. Tonight in the name that is above every other names, the Goliath in your life is about to lose his head.
When you read Daniel 3 v 13 – 30 you will see the story there of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego when the king said they must bow down and worship his idol and they refused, God kept quiet.
When the king was boasting; I am going to deal with them, I am going to throw them into the fiery furnace, I am going to make the fire to burn seven times than normal, God kept quiet. When they were binding the three of them, God kept quiet.
When they were carrying them towards the fire, God kept quiet. But just before they landed in the fire, God arose!
Do you know that whatever problem followed you here tonight, will not follow you back home? Because the time for God to arise for you has come, if you believe that let me hear your halleluiah!
When you read Daniel 6 v 18- 28 you will see it there, that when the enemies of Daniel were holding their meetings plotting how they will destroy him, they said something, they said we know him; there is no way you can corrupt him, the only way you can get him, is to ask him not to pray, he will pray to his God.
You know the enemies had been saying that concerning many of you; they said the only thing you can get him not to do is not to go to the Holy Ghost night, he will go there to pray, so let’s wait till he goes, well God is watching and he is listening.
When they said let’s get him into the den of Lions, God didn’t say a word. When they threw him into the den of lion and they rolled the stone across the mouth so that he won’t be able to escape and God arose and suddenly Lions became like lambs.
Do you know all those things that have been frightening you very soon now, they will be toys in your hands?
Let me give you just one more example because the bible is full of what happens when God arose.
In Act 16 v 25- 34 the Bible tells us about what happened to Silas, you know before that they had already cast out a demon out of a girl, the people got angry they beat them, they threw them to prison and they told the jailer keep them save because by tomorrow morning we are going to kill them.
And then the Bible says at mid-night, Paul and Silas began to pray and they began to praise God. They were doing what we are doing tonight and suddenly God arose and when God arose, the earth began to shake and very soon there was an earth quake. And the prison doors were flung open, every man’s bound were loosed.
And the man, that they say should keep these people save so that they can kill them tomorrow; is the now the one who began to wash their wounds, who began to give them food.
I have good news for somebody here tonight, because your time of favor has come; your enemies will become your servants.
So number one, when the time of favor comes, God will arise.
Number two, he will show mercy.
I can go through the scriptures from the beginning to the end, to show you all those who received mercy from the Lord what were the outcome.
But the bible says something in Lamentation 3 v 22 – 23 he says it is of the mercies of the Lord that we are not consumed, thank God it is renewed every morning. But for the mercy of God how many of us will be alive today?
If God has not been merciful unto us; many of us were born into a family where the father probably had six or seven wives.
And out of the six or seven wives maybe five of them are witches and maybe your mummy alone is the only who didn’t know anything at all and yet the Almighty God preserved your life.
How many people are in that category? Let me hear you shout halleluiah!
It is of the mercy of the Lord that we are not consumed and because of that mercy that is why you are going to get your breakthrough tonight. Because when you read Mark 1 v 40 -45 the Bible tells us the story of a leper who came to Jesus Christ and said I know you can make me clean if you are willing.
In order words I know you have the power, but I am not even sure I qualify for a miracle, the bible says Jesus Christ did something very great, he touched the leper. And the bible says you must not touch a leper, because if you touched a leper you yourself will become unclean. But the one, who made the law, broke the law. Why?
Because they said he was moved by compassion. Mercy moved Him. Tonight every law that is against you shall be broken because God will show you mercy in Jesus name.
In Romans 9 v 15 – 16 the Bible says God said I will be merciful on whom I will be merciful (and am sure I am the one He is talking to now)…
I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. It is therefore not of him that runeth, nor of him that willeth but of God that showeth mercy.
Nobody succeeds in this world except God had mercy on him and he will have mercy on you tonight in Jesus name.
I am going to take just one case study to show you things that will happen when a man is operating under divine favor.
And the example I am going to use is Joseph, there are several things I can tell you about Joseph.
In fact I wrote a whole book on him, on the faithfulness of God (if you want you can go to CRM bookshop and you get the book) it is a whole book, but tonight am not going to go over a whole book, I am going to mention seven things that will happen to somebody who is operating under divine favor.
Number one: You cannot kill a man operating under divine favor, nobody can kill him. Genesis 37 v 19- 20 the bible says when the brothers of Joseph saw him coming, what was it they said? behold the dreamer comes, let us kill him. They said let us kill him, I mean ten big men decided that the time has come for a young boy to be killed but they forgot something, they forgot that this man was operating under divine favor.
I want to assure every one of you here tonight, you will not die before your date. How do I know? Because Deuteronomy 32 v 39 the Almighty God said I am God and there is no one else, he said I am the only one who can kill, and I am the only one who can make alive. And he said there is no man who can deliver out of my hand, in other words no one can kill. Nobody can kill anybody God does not kill and I can assure you; God is not going to kill you at all.
So when God arises when there are enemies who have made up their minds that they want to kill you and then God arises what will happen? Deuteronomy 28 v 27 And God will cause the enemies that rise against you to be smitten before your face. Do you know what that one means? you are standing still, enemies arose against you and while you are watching you just see the enemies collapsing. You don’t have to do anything all! God will cause the enemies that rise up against you to be smitten before your face, he said when they come against you in one way they will flee seven ways.
When God arises for you nobody can kill you, the bible say in Isaiah 54 v 17 he says no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper. If God arises for you, every weapon of the enemies will be neutralized.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said all you have left is faith in God, he asked me to tell you that will be enough.
Daddy said there is someone here tonight, he said the doctors are confused about your case he asked me to tell you I will heal you all the same.
Isaiah 41 v 10 – 13 God says I will help you, he said I will hold you by the right hand and I will help you. He said those who are incensed against you, will be as nothing, he said you will look for them, you won’t even find them.
When God arises for you, those who says they want to kill you, they will scatter and that is going to happen tonight in Jesus name:
Number two, when a man is operating under divine favor, not only can you not kill him, you cannot kill his dreams. There are several people who just like Joseph had some very big dreams. Big dreams! In Genesis 37 v 5 -11 Joseph had a dream. Then he told his brothers, even an idiot could interpret the dream; this little boy said the dream I had is that all you my brothers you are going to bow down before me.
And the brother said, “You! We will see”. Then he had another dream, again he dreamt, and this time he said not even just the brother; my father and my mother they too they are going to be bowing down, so they said “alright we will see”.
When they saw him coming they say we will kill him and when he dies his dreams will die with him.
Many of us when we are young we have wonderful dreams, some of us by now as we are getting old, we begin to wonder what is going to happen to those dreams. I have good assurance for you, if you are operating under divine favor; those dream as big as they were they will come to past.
Because In Genesis 50 v 15 – 21 those brothers, the same brothers, who wanted to kill Joseph and kill his dreams, came, fell down before him and they say we will be your servant.
Am assuring someone here tonight, all those who have ganged up against you who say they must destroy your dreams; very soon they will come and bow down before you, why? Because when a man is operating under divine favor, God arises for him.
The Lord said there is someone here again tonight, who is asking the question again and again, when will the battle be over? The Lord asked me to tell you very soon.
Psalm 33 v 10-11 the Bible says that the Lord bring the counsel of the hidden to nothing, he makes the devices of the people of none effect but the counsel of the Lord shall stand forever.
So it doesn’t matter what they planned against you, it doesn’t matter their evil imagination, as long as God is on your side the original plan of God for your life shall be fulfilled in Jesus name.
I have told you this story before, but I will say it because of those who are listening all over the world who had never heard it.
In 1951 in my little village but it’s no longer little glory be to God. It was a small village, in those days only two Lorries come to town per day, one is Austin the other is Bedford and you can tell by the sound they make.
At that time I can tell you the total number of people with pairs of shoe in the whole village; they were very few, I know the headmaster had one, the king had one, the catholic priest had one and some other people so you don’t get the number.
And so the Anglican bishop from Ibadan came to visit our village and we in the primary school we lined up to receive him, the village hunters didn’t go to the farm, they were firing their deign guns to give the Bishop gun salute. And he drove in a very new black car.
Remember, only two Lorries come to the village, here comes a car. He was wearing the robe of a bishop, beautiful robe and when he was coming out of his car, I looked at his shoes, oh God! It was shining beautiful, I have never seen anything like that before, my mouth was wide open, and then when it was time for him to go, every farmer were giving him gifts; chicken, yams, eggs. When I got home that day, I told my mother, I said mama; I am going to be a bishop.
That was 1951, then I grew up, went to school and dropped out of church for years, I didn’t even go to church at all talk less of Bishop.
But as God will have it somewhere along the line, He met me, He saved my soul, one way or the other He promoted me and I became General Overseer.
Then in 1981 I was visiting my village as General Overseer, and they arranged for the school children to line up the route, the hunters were firing their guns, I drove in a brand new car and as I was about to come down from the car I looked at my shoes.
Let somebody shout halleluiah!
Thirty years after I had the dream it came to past, your dream too, everyone of them shall come to past in Jesus name.
Number three, when you are operating under divine favor, at home you will shine. According to Genesis 37v3 among all the children of his father, Joseph was special, what made him special?
They said he was the son of the old age, but that is the excuse. He was special because God made him special. Tell your neighbor, you may not know it but I am special to God.
So his father made him a coat of many colors, Isaiah 60 v 1-2 he said arise and shine, why? For your light is come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you, it is not anything particular, that made Joseph special, it is the glory of God upon his life.
In 1 Samuel 16 v 11 – 13 when God wanted to pick a king in the house of Jesse, he picked David, David shone among his brethren.
The Lord says I should tell a particular girl, he said because I reserve till the last, he said your celebration will be superior to those who have gone before you.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said very soon you will know the meaning of all things work together for good to them that love God.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said you have been relegated to the back seat, he said I will bring you to the front row.
In 1 Samuel 16 v 15-18 you will discover that when an evil spirit began to trouble king Saul, and his servant told him, ‘sir you need a musician to play so that this evil forces will leave you alone’ and he said ‘okay, get me someone’.
They said ‘we know one man who was an extremely good musician and he was a valiant man of valor’ they were talking about David. Even at home he was already shinning.
And in the name that is above every other name, from now on you too will begin to shine at home.
Number four, when you are operating under divine favor even in strange land, he will shine. When Joseph got to Egypt in Genesis 39 v 1 -6 the Bible says almost immediately he arrived in Potiphar house he began to shine, Potiphar just took a look at him and saw the way things were going and said I hand over everything to you.
How do you hand over everything to a prisoner? a prisoner that you have just bought , a prisoner that you don’t know anything about. But because God was arising for him abroad he was shinning.
The Bible says in Psalm 121 v 8 God says I will keep your coming and your going out. In other words, it doesn’t matter where you go, you will still shine there.
In Daniel 1 v 8-20 the Bible tells us when Shedrack, Meshach, Abednego and Daniel got to the foreign land where they were taken to slavery, the Almighty God showed them favor and by the time they finished their training they were ten times more better than other wise men. Abroad they shine!
In Genesis 24 v 1 – 14 Isaac was in a foreign land and there was farming in the Land and because he obeyed God, God made him to shine at the time that there was famine in the land; he prospered so much he became the envy of the entire nation.
I have good news for someone here tonight, very soon the whole nation will know about you.
I have told this story before, several years ago, when I was still a lecturer at the university of Lagos, there was this conference of applied mathematician in Canada and I happened to be one of the two people sent from Nigeria to go and represent us, and I felt very big because Nigeria is sending two people and they included me.
When we got there for the opening night, the man who was to make the opening remark (I think at that time I had published about 12 papers, it is your publication that they use in promoting you) but when they introduce the man who was going to do the opening talk they said he has published a hundred and fifty papers, I said what am I doing here?
Then he began to talk on what he called the mathematic of the rain. And I know two days later they were going to call me to stand before all these people to present my paper, what am I going to say in the presence of somebody who is talking about the mathematics of the rain?
I tell you a secret , I prayed hard; “ Almighty God when it’s my time to present my paper don’t let this man come”, But when the time came he was seating in the front row. Probably he came because I was so young, I am talking of 1976 or so, and I was afraid, because when somebody has finished preparing papers, others begin to ask him questions.
So it is not the presentation I am afraid of, it is how am going to answer their questions.
Then I presented my paper and everybody got up and they began to clap including that man!
I am prophesying to someone here today, anywhere you go, you will prosper.
Number five, when you are operating under divine favor, whatever he does prospers Genesis 39 v 2 the Bible says in Potiphar house Joseph was a prosperous man, then Genesis 39 v 21 – 23, even when Joseph landed in prison, again, God was with him and whatever he did prospered.
When a man is operating under divine favor, anything he touches will begin to succeed, he will begin to prosper.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said that which was introduced into you while you were sleeping had been removed tonight.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; he said the cause of your delay has been dealt with right now.
Jeremiah 17 v 7 -8, the Bible tells us that when a man put his trust in the Lord he will be like a tree planted by the river side he said whatsoever he does shall prosper.
Do you know that you can sell pure water and become a billionaire? If God is with you, anything you touch will prosper.
You can sell fire wood and become a billionaire, whatever he does shall prosper. In the name that is above every other name, your prosperity begins now.
Number six, when a man is operating under divine favor, his promotion is certain, there may be a delay like in Genesis 40 v 1 – 23 the bible tells us that after Joseph interpreted the dreams to some people and he told the one that was going to be in the court of Pharaoh he said when you get back to your position please remember me, but the bible says the man just forgot him, for two years he forgot the one who had done him good, but that is because the time wasn’t right yet, when the time came, the one who has forgotten remembered.
There are many of us who are here tonight, we have done good to several people, but in our times of trial they have forgotten us.
They don’t even want to see us, they don’t want to help us at all, but I have good news for you; things are about to change.
All those who should help you, who have forgotten about you, tonight they will have a dream, God will send them a dream so that by the time they wake up they will be looking for you.
When a man is operating under divine favor, his promotion may be delayed but it will surely come to pass.
In Genesis 41 v 38-40, the Bible says finally they brought Joseph out of the prison, and Pharaoh said we can’t find another man as wise as this, the spirit of God is in him, therefore let put him in charge.
The Lord said there as you begin to pay your tithe fully he was so move you from not enough to more than enough.
Those who say that we will soon see his end shall wait in vain.
Thank you Lord, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, anytime it is your time they will say no more, he asked me to tell you; I will change all that now.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said for the rest of the year, one success will follow another in quick succession for you.
Isaiah 75 v 6-7 tells us that promotion does not come from the east or from the west or from the south he said God is the judge, He raises one and pulls down another.
God the great promoter will bring your promotion speedily in Jesus name.
Like I told you before in 1 Samuel 2 v 7-8 when the Almighty God decides to promote you, he keeps on promoting, he can take you to any height, and he can take you to place you never dreamt possible. He just keeps on promoting, after all his arm is an everlasting hands.
If human being promotes you they can bring you down, if news paper promotes you one day they will turn against you the same people who are writing good thing about you today, with great joy they will write evil things about you. Because they know it is evil news that will sell their papers.
It is not they are wicked, it is just their job. But when God promotes, you he keeps promoting you forever.
And I have good news for somebody here; your promotion is beginning right now.
Am sure you will remember the story of one lecturer in one university, the Head of department said because he refused to join a secret society he said this fellow will never be promoted as long as he is the head of department.
This young man who gave his life to Jesus Christ mentioned the case and we cried to the Almighty God.
After all the Almighty God said if you have faith and you doubt not, you will say to this mountain, mountain be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea and it shall be so. If the Head of department decided to make himself a mountain, we tell mountain to move.
Every mountain blocking your way tonight shall move in Jesus name.
And suddenly there was a coup a new government came and the new government for one reason or other decides to remove all professors who were head of department at that time.
And the Head of department came. And the head of department said ‘I want to see the files of all those who are under me and they couldn’t find the file of this man.
The master has seen to it that the file was well hidden. They kept searching and finally they found the file and found out that there had been no recommendation for that man for more ten years.
No single recommendation, because they file was hidden And the new boos said there is only one way to compensate him and he gave him double promotion. Everything that had been denied you shall be returned seven folds in Jesus name.
Finally number seven: When a man is operating under divine favor, he will surely reach the top. There is no way you can keep down somebody who is operating under divine favor.
In Genesis 41 v 44 the bible said Pharaoh said to Joseph, I am Pharaoh and I am saying to you Joseph in the land of Egypt nobody will lift his hand or foot without your permission.
He said they must all obey me and I am saying I am taking the back seat, you rule, nobody will do anything without your permission.
Deuteronomy 28 v 13 when you are operating under divine favor, you will be head and not tail, you won’t stop until you reach the top and God is talking to someone here tonight.
In 1 Samuel 22 v 1 -2 even when David found himself in the cave of Adullam and al lot of vagabonds, people in distress people in need, people who had problems, gathered themselves together to him, he was still their captain, even in the cave he was captain.
Then later on in 2Samuel 2 v 4 in spite of everything that the enemies had done he was anointed again to be king of Judah, then in 2 Samuel 5 v 1 -3finally everybody came and said listen you are to be king of Israel.
I say it one more time, that goal where God is taking you, you will reach there in Jesus name.
The Lord says by the time the sun rises tomorrow, it will bring you a new break through.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; he said I will give you a taste of exceeding great joy.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said when next you share your testimony people will say surely God is great.
By the time you get to Mark 10 v 46 -52 you hear Bartimeus saying something about Jesus, he says Jesus thou son of David.
Now the bible tells us that Jesus is the king of kings and yet the bible records for us that David is the father of king of kings, now that is absolute top.
He started asking among his brethren, he became captain over vagabonds in the cave of Adullam, then he became king over Judah, then he became king over Israel and then he kept on rising until he became father of the King of kings.
I have good news for somebody here today, in the name that is above every other names, I will see you at the top, because that is where I am going. I am going to the top, anybody going to the top with me? I will see you there in Jesus name.
This is the reason why anybody who has any common sense at all will not want to offend God.
Because he is the only one who can give you divine favor, He is the only one who can make sure that nobody can kill you, He is the only one who can make sure nobody can kill your dreams, He is the only one who can make sure you shine at home, He is the only one who can make sure you shine abroad, He is the only one who can make sure that even if your promotion is delayed, it will still come to past.
He is the only one who can make sure you will finally reach the top.
That is why in Genesis 39 v 7 -9 when a woman the wife of Potiphar, tried to entice Joseph into committing sin, Joseph said no way.
The woman said nobody will know, I am the mistress of this house, my husband is away, whatever I say is final and when I ask everybody to clear out of the house, they will clear. So we will do this thing secretly nobody will know.
Joseph said I am not talking of your husband; I am talking of God, how can I do this thing and sin against God?
Your husband has done great thing for me, he has left everything in my hand, but he is only an instrument in the hand of God, I cannot dare offend God.
Many at times some people they think when they look right and they don’t see any one, they look left and they don’t see anyone and the door is locked. They think everything is okay; I can do whatever I like now. God is watching!
I am sure you heard the testimony of a member of the choir, not in our church but in another church. The pastor has agreed with her to go to a hotel and do all kind of things. And they got to the hotel, they were about to enter the room, again the pastor looked round right and he looked left nobody knows us here, but as they were about to enter the room, the girl said to the pastor, we have looked right, we have looked left, she said but we didn’t look up. She said God is watching. That was how she escaped.
Do you know God is watching you? And it is good news that is why the enemy cannot reach you without him knowing. If He is watching you, that is why he can keep your going in and your coming out.
If he is watching you that is why he can monitor what you are doing so that he can make it to prosper. If he is watching you that is why he can make you to find favor anywhere you go.
But because he is watching, that is why you cannot afford to offend him, no matter well you locked the door, you can’t lock God out, he himself is the door, when he wants to come in he doesn’t need a key.
That is why people have asked me again and again, why do you keep on hammering on holiness? I said ‘I have seen a little in my few years in this world, I am seventy years old now.
I have seen people rise and fall, I have seen people promoted by God crashing to the ground. Becoming nothing, why? Because they offend God,
I can assure you of one thing, when I became born again and I was running up and down, winning soul, Doing one program after the other, some people says take it easy that is how they always start, very soon he will go down.
I told them then others may go down, this one is not going to go down. And I am telling you brethren you have not seen anything yet, I am going to go on higher and higher. Why because I have learnt the secret; as long as there is no quarrel between me and God the rest is easy.
Everybody can be against me if God is for me, I am more than conqueror, that is why I am appealing seriously to those of you who are here tonight. Because this is a very special night indeed, if you are still leaving in sin, it is time to repent, if you have not given your life to Jesus Christ before, come and do so tonight.
If you say you are a Christian and you are still living in sin; you are a backslider, come and give your life back to Jesus Christ. Holiness is the master key, you live holy, the rest is settled.

Thank you my father and my God in Jesus mighty name we have prayed amen.
Let somebody shout halleluiah!
If there was a preacher that almost got me on my feet, this young man (G.O commenting on the preacher before him) has all the making of a great evangelist and he brought out a very significant truth; you cannot fight new battles with old anointing. You need new anointing to deal with the present situation in the world.
When David was going to face Goliath, King Saul gave him the armor, he said “No sir, the battle now has changed” I can’t use the old weapon to deal with the new battle. Brother I thank you very much for your insight. If that is the only sermon we heard tonight, it is enough.
I have been seriously touched by that sermon because that sermon is addressing the real reason why we are here tonight. Brethren the battle has changed, no doubt about that!
In our own time, when I was in the university and the student says that they are rioting, all we did, the most that we did, is that we blocked the gate of the university; nobody can come in, nobody can go out and then we get the branches of tree and begin to sing and to dance, that is our own protest. Throughout the days that I was in the university, not a single student died.
When somebody says he belong to the secret society in those days, they are just there to drink palm wine, they are there to make fun of girls who are not well dress.
There was never a single case where somebody killed another student, not in our time, but the battle has changed, things are different now. In our own time, probably the greatest distraction a student can have and that is the television that can be controlled.
Today, oh Lord have mercy!
while the parent are sleeping, the television is off but the Ipad is working, the Laptop is working, the children are surfing the internet, you are sleeping, you think all is well, and your child is learning how to make a bomb, from the internet. Brethren the battle has changed and we need new anointing to deal with the new problem and in the name that is above every other name, just as David overcame, we shall overcome.
The battle has changed; the elders need the new anointing to deal with the new situation in their families. The student needs new anointing; to deal with the new situation in their own lives. In my time, if you did science, when you are graduating, secondary school will come to the university to beg you to come and work, come and teach in our secondary schools, what kind of car do you want? So that we can bring it to your gate when you are leaving the university. Now you have a PhD, you have to apply.
The battle has changed; thank God the weapon has changed, thank God for a anew anointing, Thank God because we shall overcome.
Those of you who believe you shall be a winner let me hear you shout halleluiah!
The New Anointing
2Kings 2 v 9 -15 and so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken from you?’ Elisha said, “please late a double portion of your spirit be upon me: so he said “you have asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you; but if not it shall not be so”
Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven and Elijah saw it and cried out, “my father, my father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen! So he saw him no more. And he took hold of his own cloth and tore them into pieces. He also took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan.
Then he took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and struck the water, and said “where is the Lord God of Elijah?” And when he also had struck the water, it was divided this way and that and Elisha crossed over. Now when the sons of the prophet who were from Jericho saw him, they said. “The spirit of Elijah rest on Elisha.” And they came to meet him, and bowed to the ground before him.
One of the preachers said you cannot talk about the new, without talking about the old, the truth of the matter is that the old anointing is the mother of the new, it is the spirit of Elijah, that thus rest on Elisha. The old anointing gives birth to the new and because the old anointing is the mother of the new, then the genes of the old is in the new.
The two anointing have certain things in common; both of them are anointing. Whether you call one old and the other new, at least they are both anointing. And when you look at the story we have read tonight, and I am going to be very brief, because I want us to pray tonight, we need that anointing urgently. We see that both the old and the new clear obstacles.
When Elijah wanted to cross River Jordan, he used his mantle but he used it to smite the river and the river divided into two. When Elisha wanted to cross to the other side; he also took the mantle, smite the river and Jordan parted.
In Exodus 14 v 21 -28 when Moses wanted to take the children of Israel through the red sea, he used the old anointing to open up the red sea, when the wall of Jericho blocked the way of Joshua, in Joshua 6 v 20 Joshua and the children of Israel, gave one shout and the wall of Jericho came tumbling down.
The obstacles might be different, but the anointing both the new and the old can clear any obstacles. Which is why I am happy for you, that whatever obstacles that may be in your way, by the virtue of the anointing, the obstacles will vanish tonight in Jesus name.
Anointing if we have all the time to explain is also like fire and fire burns whether old fire or new fire. In 2 King 1 v 9 – 12 when some people try to arrest Elijah, Elijah used the old anointing to roast them; he used the old anointing to reduce those who would have arrested him to ashes. In 2 kings 2 v 23 – 24 when some people began to mock Elisha, he used the new anointing to silence them permanently.
By the basis on the unction of the Holy spirit, I am also saying the anointing of God will see to it tonight, that those who have tried one way or the other to say where is you, God will silence them permanently. Now both anointing, old as well as new can raise the dead,
in 2 king 17 v 17 when the Son of the widow of Zarephath died, Elijah used the old anointing to bring that child back to life.2King 4 V 28 when the son of the Shulamite woman died, Elisha used the old anointing to bring that child back to life.
So the anointing whether old or new has resurrection power, which is why I am saying everything that is good in your life that the enemy had killed, shall resurrect tonight Jesus name. Old naoin3int, where
The Lord said there is a student her tonight, he said both himself and you working together, will soon surprise your professor.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, urinating blood, he said the urinating has stopped.
The new anointing has the power to multiply. In 1 King 17 v 8 – 16 when Elijah came to the widow of Zarephath, she had only one meal left but the anointing in the life of Elijah, kept multiplying that food that the woman never lack until the famine is over.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said your voice have been fading steadily, he ask me to tell you, at the next shout of halleluiah! Your voice will be fully restored.
In 2king 4 v 1 – 7 when the widow of the son of the prophet ran to Elisha, and said am in trouble am in debt, the creditors have come to collect my children, Elijah said what do you have in the house?, she said “empty vessels” he said “go and borrow empty vessels, make sure they are very many, and begin to pour the oil and as she began to pour the oil, the oil kept on multiplying.
And am prophesying to the life of some one here tonight, in the name that is above every other name, from now on you will begin to multiply. Your miracles will begin to multiply.
It reminds me of the story of a brother, who came to us several years ago. Very, very wretched! When I finished praying for him, the spirit of God said I should give him some money, because the situation of the fellow was, am not sure he has enough money to travel back. I gave him a little money then because I had very little too. But I heard myself saying this money will never finish.
Each time I see him today, I remember that day, I remember the poor man of the day, I see how far God has brought him now.
The other day, I was driving through the camp and I was asking somebody, “Whose house is that?” “They say it belong to so and so” and I remember the money that never ends.
There is somebody here tonight, it doesn’t matter how much is in your pocket, in the name that is above every other name that money will never finish.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said I will surely promote you, but don’t forget that I am the one doing it.
Now what is the difference between the new anointing and the old? It is simply that the new is superior to the old. Far, far superior; number one it starts where the old ends. Wherever the old ends, the new begins, like in 2 kings 2 v 9-12 it is only when Elijah left that Elisha began. In Joshua 1 v 1-2 God himself said to Joshua, he said Moses my servant is dead, now you arise.
The new anointing begins were the old ends and I have good news for somebody here tonight, no matter how great you are right now, tonight is the beginning of your new greatness.
I want to prophesy to you in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, you will never go lower than you are tonight, you will never be poorer than you are tonight. From now on, it will be an upward swing in Jesus name.
The new begins where the old ends, not only that, the new anointing can do much more than the old. For example like I told my children yesterday, the new succeeds where the old has failed. In Joshua 1 v 3- 9 God said to Joshua, the assignment that Moses could not complete, you will complete. Moses brought the people out of Egypt but he couldn’t take them to the promise Land. Joshua, you will succeed where Moses has failed.
Let me prophesy to somebody straightaway, because of the new anointing you will get tonight, you will never fail again.
And like I told my children yesterday, and I am telling the rest of you who came today, who were not here yesterday, whether the devil likes it or not, you will be greater than your parent, where your parents failed, you will succeed in Jesus name.
Now When you look at 2 Kings 13 v 20 -21 just to use it as an example, because if you study Elijah, and I studied Elijah very well. I spent three solid years studying Elijah, because I like him. He was a powerful man, he was a holy man, he was a bold man, he was a man who stood in the presence of the living God, he was a man who was absolutely obedient to God, and he was a terror to the devil. So I love Elijah and I studied him very well. Recorded for us in the bible are seven major miracles that Elijah performed.
And I moved over to Elisha and I found that I love Elisha more, in fact all these years, am still studying Elijah, am still learning more from him. And I discovered that Elijah performed 14 miracles, Elijah raised one fellow from died; Elisha performed 13 miracles before he died and to make sure that what he did double that of his father, after he died, his bone raised the dead. I like Elisha!
And I am saying to somebody here today, because of the anointing you are going to receive today, your business will not die with you, your victory will outlive you.
Then you hear something from Jesus himself in John 14 v12 Jesus Christ said the works that I did, you shall do also, but he didn’t stopped there, he said and greater work shall ye do. Because you are going to be operating in the new anointing, he said you will do even greater work than I did. when I study the bible I discovered this is true in Mark 5 v 25 -34 the woman with the issue of blood touched the helm of the garment of Jesus and was made whole, but when you get to Act 5 v 14 -16
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said before the end of this month, your number one adversary will begin to sweat.
By the time you get to Act 5 v 14 -16 the bible tells us that the shadow of Peter began to heal the sick; in the case of Jesus it was the helm of his garment, but Peter went a step higher and his shadow began to heal the sick.
Let me tell my children one more time, in the name that is above every other name, you will all be greater than I. Whatever God has used me to do; He will use you to do greater works in Jesus name.
There is something about the new anointing, and that is the power to decree, the power to say something and it happens immediately. When mummy was leading us in Prayer for Nigeria, she mentioned 2 king 2 v 19- 22 there you will find Elisha pouring salt at the source of the spring at the city of Jericho and said “this water is healed from now on, there will be no more death, no more bareness from now on” and the bible says the water was healed according to the saying of Elisha as he said it.
The ability to decree and to have it happened immediately, it is very, very potent in the new anointing. Which is why I am going to share a testimony with you, before I do something that I believe the Holy Spirit want me to do tonight.
I have just returned from America, when we were there, we had an Holy Ghost rally and then it was testimonies time. One of my daughters got up to testify, she said” several years ago, I was seeking admission to the university. I came to you daddy, and I said “pray for me”, and you said “what do I want?” I said “I want admission into the university”, because you were busy; you said “that is alright, you will get the admission, go”. She said she was disappointed, she thought i was going to pray. But since i didn’t do any other things she left. Two weeks later she got her admission.
She said then some years later, she wanted to go for post graduate, so she came back. “Daddy I want to do post graduate in such and such a university and admission there is very, very tough, I have applied and I need your prayers. She said I looked at her and said congratulations. Congratulations? Then she remembered the last time; first time I didn’t pray for her I just said you will get admission, this time I said congratulation.
So she went home rejoicing, she told her son when she got home, my daddy said congratulations! Some days later she got a letter from the university and the first thing they wrote there was DEAR MRS SO AND SO, CONGRATULTIONS.
I want to say to somebody here tonight, anywhere who needs breakthrough congratulations. Or maybe I should go a little further, is there anybody here who needs a decree? You need a decree concerning any situations in your life, then let me hear your amen loud and clear.
In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, everything you want God will do for you.
Beginning from this moment, anything called failure will never be found in your dictionary again, beginning from today, all those who think you are finished, will come and bow down before you. In the name that is above every other names; I decree before the end of this month, your testimony will be complete, if you receive that, let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Put your hands together for the Almighty God because it is done!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said there is a miracle I have been keeping for you for a very long time, but you can receive it now.
Let me round up because I want us to pray tonight, we need this new anointing. Something specific about the new anointing, that I want to drive home tonight, because I have a feeling deep within me that the reason God said that the theme for November Holy Ghost service is WEEP NOT, is because God want to do something big.
And there is something the new anointing does and that is it lifts a siege. In 2king 7 v 1 -11 when Samaria was strictly besieged, so badly that women began to eat their children , Elisha spoke, he made a decree, he didn’t even preach, he didn’t pray he just said within 24 hours, they will be more than sufficient food for everybody, it was difficult to believe, but within 24 hours, the siege was lifted.
Many at times some of us don’t know what a siege is and I will try to give one or two example so you understand, at times when somebody is almost succeeding and he keeps on failing it might be because the fellow is under a siege. Maybe there are forces working against the fellow and the fellow can’t see but they are there, let me give you a classical example.
We know many at times, we go though fuel shortage in our country and there is fuel in a particular station, so you are on a long queue, they were selling to everybody before you and they were going and it comes to your turn and they say the fuel is finished that is terrible isn’t it?
But there is a worse situation; the fuel is not finished, it is your turn, the attendant says I am not selling anymore, I am tired, I am going home. You begged him, you said you will pay double, he said I am not selling. When you have a situation like that and I am giving that as an example, then it means there is a siege somewhere.
In Mark 5 v 25 -34 the Bible tells us that there was these woman, she started by menstruating normally, then the thing kept on pouring, kept pouring. She went from one physician to another, the bible says she spent all that she had, and instead of getting better, she grew worse.
There was a siege; a siege on her health, a siege on her money, there was a siege on her joy until the anointing destroy the yoke. In the name of the one who sent me, every one of you under why siege what over, that siege will be lifted today in Jesus name.
One of the preacher who spoke before me said something, he said God is not going to release new anointing on a sinner, he is absolutely correct, because nobody anoints a body that is not washed. If you want to anoint yourself, you want to put ointment on your body, you need to first wash, it is after you have washed that you apply the anointing.
He said it is true if you want the anointing of the Almighty God, his blood must first of all wash you of your sin, those have not born again, and who have not surrender their lives to Jesus Christ and they want anointing, they are not likely to get it.
Somebody who says he is a Christian, who is already backsliding, and you are already doing those things you said you will never do again; you are lying again, you are committing adultery again, and you said you want the new anointing, God says you cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound. Even when somebody is already anointed and he comes into sin, the anointing will vanished.
So those of you who are here tonight and you know you must have this anointing. Because you need it to face the new battles that may be ahead, come and give your life to Jesus, let his blood wash you clean. Those of you, who are backsliders, come back to Jesus Christ, let him restore you, the new anointing is not something you can say “I will wait for”, and you need it now straight away.
Come now and then I will pray for your salvation and the door will be open to you to receive the new anointing, and the same is true for all backsliders. Come now….
And as you come, begin to pray to Jesus Christ, I don’t want to leave in sin anymore, I want to serve you oh Lord, I need the new anointing, I want your blood to wash me clean. Ask him to have mercy on you and save your soul, and the rest of us let us stretch our hand to this people, that God will save their souls …
In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed, savior I want to bless your holy name, I want to thank you for your word, thank you for this great moment of new anointing, accept our thanks in Jesus name. Father you promised, that whosoever come to you, you will in no wise cast out, these people have come now, please receive them in Jesus name, save their souls tonight in Jesus name, let your blood wash away their sins in Jesus name, write their names in the book of life in Jesus name.
Any backsliders among them; restore fully in Jesus name. Father when you begin to release the new anointing, give them their own portion in Jesus name, thank you father, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Luke 7 v 11 – 15 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people. Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and much people of the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.
The Lord is going to have compassion on somebody here tonight.
Here is a story of a widow; who had an only son and the devil went to the house of the person with an only son and killed that one son. That is why the devil is such a bad devil.
And as they were going to bury the only son, so many things were going on in the mind of the widow; who did I offend to this extent? They killed my husband and the only son I have, they killed him also! How many enemies have I anyway? Why is my life so full of bitterness? Am I the only one in town? Why is everything so hard for me? Why am I reduced to zero? Because I have no one else now; husband gone, son gone. Why is all my way blocked, how come I don’t even have an open way for me to walk in?
Why has death constituted himself to a giant blocking my way? And very soon all these sympathizers will be gone. And I will be left alone! In a moment, I will be alone with my sorrow. When will the mountain of my life move? When will the storm barraging me stop? When will I ever come out from the valley of sorrow?
You can imagine thousands of questions going on in the mind of this widow.
Suddenly the procession stopped. Because someone had come on the scene and said to her, am not sympathizing with you, am commanding you, stop weeping! Am sure she must have looked at him and said sir, are you alright? With all these my problems… You asked me to stop weeping?, but she said nothing, she just looked at him, as if to say well, you don’t know what is going on here, but in the next moment, something happened!
There is someone here tonight, in the next moment, something will happen in your life.
The Almighty God is walking through this ground right now and he is going to stop beside someone and say to him or her, stop weeping. Who is that fellow? If you are the one let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Maybe you too have many enemies, but remember what God said to the children of Israel, by the mouth of Moses; in Exodus 14 when they looked back and they saw so many enemies matching after them, enemies that have been enemies for more than 400 years. Those who were enemies of their fathers and grand fathers. God spoke through the mouth of Moses and said to the children of Israel, he said look at them very well, because the enemies you see tonight, you will never see them again.
And my Daddy is speaking through me tonight and he is saying to someone here tonight, all the enemies that have been pursuing you all these years, you will never see them again.
Why? Because God will arise for you!
Psalm 68 v 1 – 3 says let God arise and his enemies will scatter, in the name that is above every other name, God will arise for you.
Maybe your own life too is full of bitterness, there is a God, a God who turned Mara waters to sweet, that God is still on his throne. In John 5 v 2 – 9 the bible tells us the story of a man, who had a history of sorrow. For thirty eight years, it was one sorrowful year after another, but one day, Jesus came on the scene and the history of sorrow ended.
I have good news for someone here today, every year that has passed, had been full of sorrows for you and it looks as if this year is going to end like that, but because there is a God in heaven, who speaks and it is done, from tonight onward you shall weep no more.
In 2 king 2 v 19 -22 for years, for generations, Jericho was under a curse, there was no more death, no more bareness, because God spoke through his servant and tonight, the same God is speaking through one of his servant.
And tonight through one of his sons and I am saying to you right now, every curse that has been in your generation, that has been causing you sorrow, will end tonight in Jesus name.
Maybe for you things are hard, like the woman would have said things are hard “things are hard” everybody knows what it is to be poor, it can be very difficult to be happy when you are poor, but there is a God who brought water out of the rock; that God is still on his throne. The earth is his own and the fullness thereof, silver belongs to him, Gold belongs to him according to Haggai 2 v 8. And the Almighty said in Philippians 4 v 19 but my God shall supply your needs, according to his riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.
I know there might be some people here who will be saying, Christmas is coming, when everybody will be celebrating, but what do I have to celebrate with?
In the Might name of Jesus Christ, between now and the end of the year, your breakthrough will come.
This woman said, I am down to zero, I have lost everything. Everything that meant anything to me, I have lost them all. I have good news for you; the woman didn’t know help was on the way. Like the widow of Zarephath in 1king 17 v 8 -16 she said I am going to eat my last meal and me and my son will go ahead and die, but while she was getting ready to die, help was on the way.
I decree in the name that is above every other name, that even before you get home in the morning, God will send help to you. Help is on the way!
Bartimeus didn’t even know help was coming, he woke up and he thought he will die a beggar, but help was on the way.
In the name that is above every other name, you will not miss your own help.
Or maybe your ways are totally blocked, you don’t even know where to turn now; you turn right; it is blocked, you turned left; it is blocked, you look forward it is blocked, you can’t even go back because the back is blocked.
There is someone coming who is called the Way. Jesus Christ said I am the way.
I have good news for you, ways will open unto you.
Thank you father, the Lord asked me to tell someone here tonight, he said before this month is over, you will discover that God does not make mistake.
Daddy says there is a student here tonight; he said I am going to move you, from below average to above brilliant.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; he said I will touch you twice tonight.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said in spite of every efforts, he said you have always be a failure, Daddy asked me to tell you, things will change from tonight.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he asked me to tell you to get ready for a major transformation.
So your ways is totally blocked, maybe all you need is not tears but praise, because in Joshua 6 v 20 when the wall of Jericho blocked the way of Joshua, they didn’t weep; himself and the children of Israel, they didn’t weep, all they did was praise God. In 2chronicle 20 v 20 – 25 when some mighty Kings gathered against Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat didn’t weep, he praised God and the enemies destroy themselves. Do you know one of the reasons why you won’t weep again; is that all your enemies will finish themselves off?
In Act 16 v 25 – 34 when the enemies thought they have got Paul and Silas, not only were they in prison, they put them in chains, they didn’t weep but they praise God. When they praised Him, doors were opened.
Maybe I should give you two minute, just to praise God, like you have never done before, maybe we will see something happen. Just praise him…in Jesus mighty name we worshipped.
Together lets shout one big halleluiah
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said you are fully aware of some people who are determined to terminate your life. The Lord asked me to tell you, i will terminate them all.
Maybe right now, there is a giant blocking your way, maybe there is somebody in authority who said ”I am not going to allow you to succeed.”
But you remember the story of David and Goliath, when David saw Goliath, he didn’t weep, he challenged him in the name of the Lord.
And for every one of you here tonight, every Goliath blocking your way, before the sun rises, shall be dead in Jesus name. And if he didn’t die, according to Psalm 23 v 5 the Lord that prepared a table before you in the presence of your enemies, will shame all those who says you will not succeed in Jesus name.
Thank you father, daddy asked me to tell you a story, true story. Several years ago, my two last sons were in command school Ibadan. So on their open day, we went to see them, myself and my wife, we went with food; pounded yam, the kind we know they don’t eat in Command. We got there, all parents were there, the children were there running up and down, enjoying themselves. And I noticed a boy; he stood alone, looking towards the gate. Am sure he was expecting his parents, looking and looking and looking and nobody came. So I went to the boy, “you are expecting your parent?” he said “yes sir”. “Do you think they are coming?” he said “I am not sure sir,” so I said come, I took him to join my children, he eat with them, when we were leaving we gave him some money.
The reason God asked me to tell you the story, he said there is someone here tonight; all those you thought will help you, have not shown up, the Lord asked me to tell you “I will help you”.
That widow needed an urgent miracle, because if Jesus had not been there on time to raise that dead young man, very soon the boy would have been buried and that would have been the end of it all.
There might be somebody here tonight, who needs an urgent miracle, like in 2 kings 4 v 1 – 7 the creditors came. Woman, if you don’t pay our debt, by tomorrow we will sell your children, that widow needed an urgent miracle, in less than 24 hours, the solution came.
I know there be somebody here who needed a miracle urgently, I believe God with you that before the sun rises tomorrow, and your tears will be changed to laughter.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, who is in the secret society, in a cult and your heart is saying to you, get out but another section of the heart is saying, you know if you get out they will kill you. Daddy asked me to tell you whoever you are, that if you run out to the altar now, he will guarantee not only your freedom but your safety. You want to get out, but you are afraid, daddy says if you come out now, he will not only guarantee your freedom, he will guarantee your safety. I will count from one to seven, by the time I say seven., if you are not already out, I know you don’t want to come, I will continue with the programs, am counting now …one, two, three…..seven
If you are here tonight and you have not given you life to God, come now. Brethren, stretch your hands towards these people and ask that the Almighty God will arise for them, and set them free from every yoke of bondage, that God will cancel every evil covenants in their lives and grant them special protection from now on, pray that God will make them free, absolutely free from now on. Thank you deliver, deliver them oh Lord from every shackles of Satan…
… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Lord of host, you have never lost a battle, these your children wants to get out of the company of darkness, father set them free in Jesus name. The power that is in your blood, the blood that conquers Satan, let it conquer for them in Jesus name. Lord God Almighty, I pray tonight, that you will build a fire around them and the enemy will never be able come to them again, let them remain free for ever, let them be save forever, let them remain secure forever, let them spend the remaining part of their lives serving you. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout halleluiah! go in freedom, it will be well with you now, just keep going and keep rejoicing, let’s give God a big round of applause.
So if you need an urgent miracle, the Almighty God is more than sufficient, he has done it before, he will do it again, maybe there is a big mountain blocking your way in Psalm 90 v 1 -2 the Bible says before the mountain were brought forth, he is God, before the problem started in your life, God was there and the one who knew the foundation of your problem, also knows how to uproot the mountain. In Zachariah 4 v 6 – 7 he says it is not by power or by might, he says it is by my spirit, says the Lord of host. He says who are thou oh mountain, before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain.
I decree tonight, in the name that is above every other name, every mountain blocking your way shall become plain in Jesus name.
Maybe you are in a storm and the storm is beaten very hard, don’t forget there is a God, whose name is prince of peace. All he asked to do is say peace and the storm will cease. In Mark 4 v 35 – 41, you know the story very well, Jesus was in the boat sleeping and there was a storm and the disciple thought maybe he didn’t even know we are about to sink, but when they woke him up, he spoke one word, peace be still and suddenly the storm went to sleep.
I know there might be some people here tonight the storms are raging, physically, financially, maritally Or even spiritually because Jesus is alive forever, I speak to those storms and I say storms, be still in Jesus name. After all the bib le says that at the mention of the name of Jesus all kneels must bow, your storm will bow, to the name of Jesus now.
And so when he said to that woman, weep not, it was because he knew he was going to remove the source of sorrow. He wasn’t ridiculing the woman, he wasn’t joking, when he said weep not, it is because he knew that very, very soon, the woman will be shouting for joy.
When the almighty God said to me that the theme for November is WEEP NOT, I was somewhere in the bush praying, when all of a sudden he said the theme for November is weep not. Alone in the bush I began to dance, why? Because I know what that means,
I know that there is somebody here tonight, no doubt about it. Long before the end of November, your problems will be over.
I will just tell you a story then we will go and pray, because I know we just need to seek his face tonight. It is a story some of you have heard before. But there might be one or two people who had not heard it before.
We were in the first auditorium beside the road, we were having programme like this, and I ask everybody to pray, it is time to pray, now when I ask people to pray, I always pray too, because I need prayers. And the way I was taught when I was young, that when you are praying, you close your eyes, not like you people nowadays, who open your eyed when you are praying.
I have even seen some people when they say pray, that is the time they are taking pictures, why – because they have no problems.
So I asked people to pray and I close my eyes and I was praying. Suddenly I asked God saying, Son, open your eyes. I almost said to Him, but daddy I am praying! He asked me to open my eye, so I opened my eye. We were much fewer than this then. And he pointed a woman to me in the congregation, drenched in tears, he said to me, go to her, and tell her, stop weeping.
So I went down from the altar, went to the woman, tap her by the shoulder, because she was gone in prayers. I said sister, God said “stop weeping” and suddenly she brightened up because she knew at last, God has heard.
Is there anyone here tonight, that you can feel it, deep inside you that at long last, God has heard!
God said stop weeping, quickly she wiped away her tears and she cheered up.
I didn’t say more than that because that is all God asked me to say. About a year later, I was at home when the woman came and said, “do you remember me?” I say how many people will I remember? She said I was the woman who was weeping, that God sent you to tell stop weeping.
And she told me her story; she said I have been barren for so long. The relative of my husband says they are going to drive me out. When I was weeping that day, I was weeping in sorrow and now see my baby!
When God says stop weeping, it is because he has made up his mind to remove that which is causing you sorrow. That day it was my turn to weep and I was weeping for joy.
There is somebody here tonight, the next time you weep, it will be weeping for joy.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said before this year runs out, you will sing “All is well!”
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said your benefactors is going through a hard time, the Lord asked me to tell you, because you came here tonight, I will intervene.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said from now your seed will fall on good soil
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said your talent has been hidden for too long, he said now I will bring it to the open.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said from this moment onward, the things you were looking for, will begin to look for you
Psalm 32v 10- 11 the Bible says the sorrow of those who runs after other god shall be many, but those who trust in the Lord shall be glad and rejoice.
If you are living in sin, if you are worshipping other gods, there is no way your sorrow can go, God says many will be the sorrows of the wicked. He said only those who put their trust in the Lord, will continue to be glad and will continue to rejoice.
There is no prophecy that can cancel the word of God. Forever oh Lord, your word is settled; the word of God says the sorrow of the wicked shall be multiplied. The sorrow of those who run after other god shall be multiplied.
The sorrows of those who refuse to surrender their live to Jesus Christ shall be multiplied. But those who trust in God shall be glad and they shall rejoice.
If you are here tonight and you have not yet given your life to Jesus , come and do so now, God wants to put an end to your sorrow, but he will not break his word, all his prophecy of tonight are for those who are Gods children and they can become your too if you surrender your life.
So I am going to count from one to ten, if you want to give your life to Jesus, before I say ten come and stand before me here. If you are backslider and you have gone back into sin and you want your joy to be restored, come back to the Almighty God, come now, one, two, three… as you come, begin to ask for mercy, ask him to save your soul. Talk to him now… the rest of us, lets pray for these people, let’s ask God to save their soul, that he should forgive them their sins.
Those of you who are coming, keep coming. I will wait a little for you to come…. Ask him for mercy; ask him to save your souls, ask him to save your soul… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Savior, I just want to bless your name, thank you because your mercy endures forever, thank you for your word, thank you for this your children who have come today, accept our thanks in Jesus name.
Father you promise that who so ever will come to you, you will in no wise cast out, they have come now, receive them in Jesus name, forgive them in Jesus name, save their souls in Jesus name, let your blood wash away their sins in Jesus name, father please write their names in the book of life in Jesus name and from now on, wipe away all tears from their eyes, let them serve you till the end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Now, I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight, because from now, till every day of my life, I will be praying for you and very soon, you will be receiving some miracles you didn’t even ask for. So I need your name, your address and your prayer request.
You may want to write down your prayer point because tonight, we really need to spend time with God,
1. Praise Him that you are still alive till this moment; it means the devil has lost the battle over your life. So you want to thank God, that you are around for this November Holy Ghost service
2. Father, arise for me and no matter how many my enemies may be, scatter them all.
3. Father, turn my sorrow to joy tonight, my weeping to laughter, my bitterness to sweetness.
4. Father, you brought water out of the rock before, do it again for me
5. Father, lift up urgently.
6. Father, make a way for me; dismantle every road block on my path.
7. Every storm bombarding my life, still them now.
8. Remove every source of sorrow, in my family; don’t let me ever weep again.
9. Before this year ends, let my testimonies be complete.
10. Your own individual request.
You can pray in your own way, you can kneel; you can lie down, for the next one hour cry unto God.
LET SOMEBODY SHOUT ALLELUIA

Let someone shout halleluiah!
Some years ago, a young man came to me and said “Daddy, I am about to attend the most important interview of my life”, I said “ok, you want me to pray for you?” he said “NO! I want you to speak a word into my life that is all I want”. So I said ok, it will be well with you! He said amen and he left. The second day, he came back excited, Daddy, I got to the place of interview, I sat before this great me, who formed the interview panel, fully prepared for all questions. And they said to me, what is your name? I told them. What post do you say you want? I told them Deputy Managing director; they say when can you start? I said anytime you set. They say come tomorrow.
He said Daddy, speak another one. So I looked at him and I said the God who has started a good work in you will perfect it. He said amen and he left, second day he came back, excited! Daddy, I reported at the place of work this morning, they asked me to go into the broad room again, I met the same people and they said to me, young man after you left yesterday, our managing director resigned, will you be able to cope as managing director? He said Daddy, speak another word. Why am I telling you this story?
Early this morning, as I woke up, my father said to me, that he has giving me full liberty to speak a word to the life of anybody who wants it tonight. So if you want me to speak a word to your life; stand on your feet, and because he has given full liberty to do so, all of you who are listening by television, all of you who are listening by the internet all over the world stand on your feet also. And I say to you in the name that is above every other name, number one, it will be well with you. Number two, God who has started a good work in you will perfect it. Number three, you will succeed beyond your imagination. Number four, whoever God has to move for you to reach your goal, that fellow will be moved tonight. Number five, when you ask for one favor, the Almighty God will give you three. If you receive that put your hands together for the Almighty God.
Open your bible to Mark 10 v 46- 52
And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the high way side begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me. And many charged him that he should hold his peace: he cried the more a great deal, thou son of David, have mercy on me. and Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man saying unto him, be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. And he casting away his garment rose and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered and said unto him, what wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord that I may receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, go thy way, thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus in the way.
In the life of Bartimeus, certain new things happened. Incidentally this sermon am about to preach to you is not a sermon, it is a message from God. The Lord ask me to tell someone here, that even a as I am going along, you should see this sermon as a message from Him to you. The bible says Bartimeus sat by the road side begging, he heard that somebody is passing by who is special. And he began to cry to him for help. People there asked him to shut up, he refused to be silenced.
Finally Jesus heard him! And God is going to hear someone here tonight and the first new thing that happened in the life of Bartimeus that day was that God stood still. Never before that day has God ever stood still for any person. The sun and the moon has stood still before as we read in Joshua 10 v 12 -14. But for the Almighty God to stand still because of anyone, had never happened before. For God the sovereign God. The one who says I will work who will hinder? The one who will say to any door, lift up your head ye door, be lifted up everlasting doors. The one will speak and it is thus. The Lord of host himself stood still. I have good news for somebody here tonight, because of you; the Almighty God is going to stand still.
Several years ago, when my last son was very small, I have a prayer closet next to my bedroom. very little closet, once am there nobody comes to bother me at all, all except this one; I will be flat on my face praying for nations, and he will come in and say daddy I want cookies. Don’t bother me go and ask your mother, No! Daddy I want cookies. The more I tried to push him off the louder becomes, so I learnt from experience, that whenever he come in, I must suspend my prayers, attend to him before I continue. I am saying to someone here today, whatever the Almighty God is doing right now, he will stop until he has solved your problems.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said the doctors are worried about a growth in your anus, the Lord asked me to tell you, he has taken it away.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said my grace that has made you great will be extended to your children.
The second new thing that happened to Bartimeus, which is about to happen to someone here today, is that the Almighty God changed his enemies to be his servant. The very people who were saying to him, you will die blind, the people who was saying God is not going to answerer your prayers. The very people who say you are going to die a beggar. They were the same people God sent to bring him his get his miracle. I have good news for somebody here tonight; all those who say God will not answer your prayer will come and congratulate you. it was a new thing. When you go through the scripture before that day, God has dealt with enemies in various ways. In Exodus 14 he drowned the enemies of Israel. In Number 16, he buried the enemies of Moses Alive. But to turn an enemy to a servant, it was the first time, it was a new thing, am believing God for someone here today, that before the sun rises, all your enemies will become your servants.
The third thing that Bartimeus got that day was a creative miracle.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said because you are now on my side, you will never be grounded again.
In John 9 v 32, one man who was born blind, who receives his sight said, since the world began, it has never been heard that somebody opened the eyes of someone who was born blind, it was a first time miracle.
I have good news for someone here today, the kind of miracle you have never received before, you will get your own today in Jesus name. A young man was born blind came to one program, where the man of God was speaking on spare part, and how God can give you spare part. God can perform creative miracle for you. The young man said God I received two new eyes. He left nothing happened. He was still as blind as before. The following morning, when he woke up and he was wiping his hands across his face, he discovered that the place where eyes is to be which used to be very cold, is suddenly warm, by the third day, he saw that the place was swelling. I think it was on the seven day when he heard the voice of God, loud and clear; open your eyes, and he opened and he had two brand new eyes.
Some of you prayed here on Tuesday for creative miracles and you are already hearing testimonies. In the name that is above every other name, even before you get home, your own testimonies will come.
The Fourth thing he got that he got that day is uncommon promotion. God had promoted a shepherd boy turned him to a king before in 1 Samuel 16 v 11 -13…
The Lord said there is a woman here tonight, they call you barren, he ask me to tell you two great people will be kicking inside of you very soon.
The Almighty God said there is someone here tonight, those who said you have reached your limit, will soon be surprised.
Almighty God has turned a farm boy to a king before, the bible has said that the almighty God can pick up a beggar among dunghill and promote him till he become someone sitting among princes. But to pick a beggar, by the road side and transform him to centre of attraction the first day, it was the first time. I have good news for someone here tonight, up till this moment, nobody knows you, but by the time you are coming for next year congress, everybody will treat you special. How? I don’t know, but I am talking about the Almighty God and he has said, I will do a new thing.
The number five thing that he got; is that he got a new garment; somebody is going to get a new garment tonight.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said that which you are believing him for, has been released since yesterday.
The Lord asked me to tell you a story because there is a prophecy coming after that. Some years ago, I went for a prayer walk at night and because some people were also praying in the camp, they were very loud. I decided to walk into the bush so I can have some silence; I had this modern touch light that is rechargeable with me. So when I was walking into the bush, the battery was working, the torchlight was bright. After I have gone very far, suddenly the touch light packed up and it was a very dark night. And the road I took was a very narrow bush road. I said God what am I going to do, how do I get back to the camp?
And I remember that they taught us that if you close your eyes in a darkroom, when you open it might be a little light. So I closed my eyes and I just said God help me. When I open my eyes, there was a big moon out there in the sky on top of me. There was no moon when I was going into the bush, I said maybe I didn’t notice, Lord thank you. And I came back to where there was light, as soon as I got to where there was electricity, and I looked up there was no moon. Father! What has happened? He said I have given you a miracle personally for you.
The Lord asked me to tell someone here tonight, a miracle designed for you only will be given to you tonight.
You know there are some testimonies difficult to share, because nobody will believe you, am in total agreement with someone here tonight, a testimony so big that nobody will believe you, will be giving to you tonight in Jesus name.
I was saying in 2Kings 5 v 1 -14 Naaman got a new garment physically; his skin came back to him like that of a new born baby. In 2Kings 4 v 1-7 the widow of the son of the prophet, got a new garment, a new garment of prosperity. In 2Kings 4 v 8-17, a woman got a new garment of Joy.
but in the case of Bartimeus he got all of them together, a new garment physically, a new garment financially, a new garment of Joy, all of them rolled together and given to one man. And since Daddy has given me full liberty to speak into the life of some one, I here by decree, every garment of Shame will be taken away from you. Every garment of suffering will be taken away from you, and the Almighty God will give you a garment of Joy.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said in the New Year, expect at least seven major miracles.
The sixth thing that happened to Bartimeus was that discouragement led to break through; he was suppose to be discouraged by those who were saying shut up. He was a beggar, he should have said I better don’t offend this people because they are the one feeding me, but instead of discouragement, robbing him of his miracle, he pushed him into his breakthrough.
There have been cases where people was discouraged before but they still ultimately got there miracle, but on that day he was discouraged but he got his miracle immediately.
Tonight, all of you who had prayed again and again for something and you didn’t get an answer and you are now beginning to wonder, is God really alive. As the Lord lives, you will sing a new song.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said very soon, when people begin to say, God has done all things well, they will use you as an example.
The Lord says the Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said there is a joy that cannot be hidden; he said you will have a taste of that joy soon.
The number seven thing that happened; it is the summary of the whole story, which was that he got a very pleasant surprise. When he woke up in the morning, he didn’t know anything great will happen, he just woke up and, find his way to the road side where he normally beg, but before the day was over, so many things have happened in his life; he got his healing, he was no longer going to beg for the rest of his life, he didn’t even know that he had a destiny, that he was destined to be a follower of the Almighty God. He didn’t know that two thousand years after he died, people will still be talking about him. He didn’t even know that he was born to be great but in a single day, everything changed. And changed so thoroughly, that they were never ever able to be reversed.
In that name that is above every other name, I decree to someone here today; that the every miracle God will do for you tonight will never be reversed.
Bartimeus asked for mercy, why did he ask for mercy? He realized he didn’t deserve divine attention. Why should God bother himself answering a beggar by the road side? Why will God wants to answer a sinner? Why would God want to do a new thing in the life of many of us who are here? Considering the kind of life that we have lived before. Is it somebody before you now, who should be standing before you, but for the mercy of God? But he said I will be merciful unto whom I will be merciful, I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. The bible says it is not of him that wills, not of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy.
Many of us know that but for the grace of God, we should even be died by now but he kept us alive. Particularly till this moment, when he wants to do a new thing and the new thing had already started, and he included you among those people out of mercy. That is why Bartimeus didn’t say you must do this, he ask for mercy.
Believe me honestly there are things that the Almighty God says he will do tonight, that even me I am amazed. Within the next one hour you will see for yourself.
But in order that nobody will be left out, I want to an opportunity to those who have not surrendered your life to Jesus Christ. Whether you are here or you are listening to me all over the world, by television or by internet or by radio, this is a moment of decision, surrender your life to him Jesus today. Throw yourself at his mercy, and his blood will wipe away all your sins.
For those of you who are here tonight, come to the front those who wants to give their lives to God and since some of you are kilometers away, we have arrange some altars in the auditorium, you will find flags on them, find the one that is closest to you, go there and it will be as good as if you are standing before me here. There will be pastors to attend to you there in a moment. And as you come, begin to cry for mercy, ask him to save your soul, ask him to forgive you all your sins. Promise him that from now on you will serve him for the rest of your life, that you will do His will.
…In Jesus mighty name we have prayed, savior, I want to bless your holy name, I want to thank you for the salvation of the souls of people. You said in your word that whosoever will come unto you, you will not cast out; these people have come, please receive them in Jesus name, forgive all their sins in Jesus name. Cleanse them in your blood in Jesus name. Even as you are saving their souls today, write their names in the book of life in Jesus name and from now on when they call on you, answer them in Jesus name. And the new things that you want to do in all our lives, please Lord include them in Jesus name. Don’t let them go back into the world, let them serve you till the end.
