Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, the One who is, the One who was, the One who is to come, the God of 2017 and the God of 2018, thank You. Thank You for loving us; thank You for saving our souls; thank You for standing by us; thank You for supporting us; thank You for miracles of the past years, Father, accept our worship in Jesus’ name.

Daddy this year, in the life of all Your children, those who are here, those who are listening all over the world, do something new; do something great; do something powerful; do something glorious; do something miraculous and let the miracles begin right now.

Father, all those who are lying on their sick bed, wherever they maybe, at home, at hospital, all over the world, this very night heal them all. Father before the sun rises let every sick fellow sing song of victory. Let every captives sing a song of victory.

Beginning with those of us here my Father and my God, let there be shout of hallelujah before the sun rises. Thank You my Father. Glory be to Your holy name.

Thank You Daddy.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said, the rain you are expecting will start falling this month.

Thank You my Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Find two or three people you have not seen this year and shake hands and say happy New Year and God bless you.

It has to be somebody you have not seen this year – two or three of them.

And then you may please be seated.

Tonight we want to discuss Stronger than Your Enemies (Part 1) and as usual we will want to start by talking to those who are not yet born again so that they won’t miss part of the blessings that we come later tonight.

Thank You Father.       

I know this year will be special because the Lord says there is someone here today, He said, every month of this year you will enjoy wonders.

Romans chapter 8 verse 31:

“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”

When God is on your side without any doubt, you are more than a conqueror because all the enemies need to see is to see God arising up in your support.

You see Psalm 68 verse 1 to 3 says let God arise and His enemies will scatter.

So, if God is behind us; when God arises and the enemies see who is behind you, they run.

The Elders have a proverb, they said, Dada cannot fight but he has a very courageous brother

Even if I cannot fight, if they see my God they will run.

I keep telling people, Pastor Adeboye is nothing, I can do nothing, I cannot heal rat, I cannot save a goat but my God that is a different story entirely – my God can do absolutely anything and He is going to do something wondrous for somebody here tonight in Jesus’ name.

Now, according to Acts chapter 9 verse 1 to 5, your enemies are His enemies if He is on your side.

Because Saul of Tarsus persecuting Christians but when God knocked him down (as He is going to do to your enemies this year) Saul ask God, who are you?

Jesus told him, I AM Jesus, the One you are persecuting.

It must have been a surprise to Paul – I cannot see you, how can You say I am persecuting You!

Oh, if you are persecuting My children, you are persecuting Me.

If you are a child of God, your enemies are God enemies; that is why your enemies are in trouble.

That is why the Bible says in James chapter 4 verse 7: if only you will submit to God; even the devil will see you coming and run.

Because He says if you submit to God, you resist the devil, he will flee.

To flee means run as in terror.

You will see in one of the verses of the song, special son, compose for the Holy Ghost service: it says to the devil I am a terror.

If you are one of God’s children you are a terror to the devil.

According to Acts chapter 19 from verse 13 to 17, if you belong to God devils will recognize you because some people were trying to cast out a devil in the name of Jesus that Paul preaches and devil said Jesus I know, Paul I know but who are you?

If you belong to God the devil knows who you are.

The devil knows who I am for example and I am sure he knows who you are if you are truly born again.

And because demons recognize us, they know the authorities we carry, they know the power of the One supporting us and so we can cast them out

Mark 16 verse 17 says, and these signs shall follow them that believe – and these signs shall follow them that are children of God.

In My name they will cast out devil – that is the first thing He says we will do – cast them out.

According to Isaiah 54 verse 16 to 17, the word of God says if you belong to God no weapon formed against you shall prosper.

Why?

Because God says I AM the maker of the instrument that they would put together to form the weapon.

If the herbalist join leaves and roots together against you and you belong to God, God will tell the leaves and the roots not to function.

Because He made them and they obey Him.

He says, okay, leaves you can perform special function; roots you can perform special function but that is at My command.

You belong to Jesus Christ no weapon formed against you shall prosper – impossible.

Some of you heard the testimony of our brother Apostle Bangbola.

The wife was a violent Christian and he was a violent antichrist and he did not like the way the wife was tormenting him with her prayers.

So, he got all manners of charm to get rid of the woman – the kind of charm that they said sprinkles it on her dress; if only she could wear the dress, she will be dead.

She wore the dress and got younger.

If you belong to the Almighty God no weapon formed against you shall prosper.

As a matter of fact in Numbers 23, if you read from verse 19 to 24 (Numbers 23:19 to 24), if the enemies want to curse you and you belong to God, as he is opening his mouth to curse you, blessing will be flowing.

When he want to say you will die; he will open his mouth and say you will never die.

When he wants to say you will be poor, he will say you become the richest in the town.

That is the way of God; that He does if you belong to Him.

But if He is against you, O O! where will you run to?

If God becomes your enemy, you go to the mountain top, He is there.

Go to the bottom of the sea, He is there.

Anywhere you tried to run from Him, you will meet Him there.

And the moment the enemy knows that you are not on the side of God, they know you are easy meat.

As a matter of fact, I think I have told you before; all that God needs to do for the devil to finish you is for God to do nothing.

All He has to do is remain neutral.

I told you my father told me that when the Lion wakes up in the morning, he prays one prayer: God show me the animal I will eat today and leave the two of us alone – don’t help me, don’t help the animal, just show me and then remain neutral.

If the devil ever prays a prayer, it will be God show me the fellow I will destroy today and leave the two of us alone.

If God leaves you alone, you are finished.

So, even why you are not yet on His side He is still taking care of you.

You kwon why?

Because He is waiting for a day like this when you will hear the truth and you will repent.

However, He will not wait forever.

One day, His patience will run out because He said in His word: the wages of sin is death.

If you continue to be a sinner, you were sinner last year and you want to continue to be a sinner this year;

Well, maybe He was merciful last year; maybe your day may run out or your time may run out this year unless you take a decision and take a decision quickly. 

You see, because He said in Deuteronomy chapter 30 verse 19, He said, I called the heaven and the earth to bear witness that I have set before you blessing and cursing, death and life; He said, choose.

But then He gave you an advice that chose life that you and your seed may live.

The Almighty God is saying to you tonight, if you have not chosen Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

If up till this moment you are living your life on your own; you are living a life of sin regardless of everything God has been saying to do, God has been doing for you; He is asking you to chose now because tomorrow might be too late.

So the choice is yours; if you are here or you are at the any of the viewing centres: the old arena, Headquarters viewing centres; the viewing centres all the way Papua New Guinea, everywhere;

If you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, come forward now.

I will count from one to twelve.

By the time I say twelve you are not already standing before me or standing before the altar, I know that you don’t want to come and then I will pray for salvation for those who have come and we will continue with the programme.

But if you want to surrender your life to Him; if you say I don’t want to handle my life on my own I need God to help me, come now as I count.

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven…

Okay

Those of you who have come and those of you who are on the way cry to God now and ask Him to be merciful on you; ask Him to please save your soul. Tell Him you will serve Him; ask Him to become your Lord, your Saviour; tell Him for the rest of your life you will do His will. Ask Him for mercy; ask Him for salvation today; and please the rest of us let us stretch our hands towards this people and intercede for them that the One who saved our souls will save their own soul also. Pray that God will be merciful unto them and He would cleanse them with His blood. Pray that God will give them a brand new beginning. Pray for them brethren. And those of you who are still on the way keep coming; keep coming.  Let us pray for them for another one minute; let us intercede that God the great Saviour will save their souls that He will be merciful unto them; that He will give them a brand new beginning. Thank You Father. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Saviour I want to thank You for Your word; I want to give You all glory and honour for these people who have come forward to surrender their life to You. Please remember Your promise that whosoever will come unto You, You will no wise cast out; they have come to You now Father please receive them in Jesus’ name, save their souls; write their names in the book of life; let Your blood watch away their sins. And please Lord God Almighty, for the rest of their lives let them serve You. From this moment, anytime they call on You answer them by fire.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Now, those of you in front let me hear you shout hallelujah.

Congratulations because from now on I will be praying for you.

So I need your names, your address and your prayer request.

The Counselors will hand you a piece of paper, please fill in the details I want and we will wait for you to finish before we continue.

Congratulations.

Thank You Father.

Luke chapter 11 verse 21 to 23:

21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

The Lord is speaking here and He said that basically there are two categorize of people: the Strong man who is well armed; keeping his goods in his palace and then everything he saved until a Stronger fellow comes.

A Stronger fellow comes upon the Strong one; knocks him down; takes everything he has.

In the Name that is above every other name you will be stronger than your enemies.

It is good to be strong.

Joel chapter 3 verse 10 says let the weak say I am strong.

Any strong fellow here today say it loud and clear.

Physically the plan of God is that every one of us is strong.

Psalm 105 verse 37 says when the children of Israel were living Egypt there was not a single feeble one among them.

God does not want sickness to stay for one day in the body of His children.

In Exodus 15 verse 26, the Bible says, if you will obey God, He won’t even let you be sick (Exodus 15:26)

And He says if any be sick among you don’t seat down tolerating the sickness, He said send for the elders, let the elders come, anoint you with oil, pray; then He said the prayer of faith would heal the sick.

God does not want sickness to stay in your body.

And I am praying for every one of you here today, throughout this year you will live in divine health.

Physically He wants you to be strong.

Materially He wants every member of His family to be strong.

When you read Genesis 33 verse 4 to 9, you will see Esau (and you know the story of Esau and Jacob very well), the day that their father decided to bless, Jacob got in before Esau and took all the blessings.

By the time Esau arrived, the father said, I have already poured out the blessings.

Haa!

Esau said, have you not got anything left, a little bit.

Well, he said we may see if there is anything little bit left over – gave him the crumb.

But in Genesis 33 verse 4 to 9, Esau said to Jacob, I have enough.

The least in the house of God should have enough.

And I decree in the mighty name of Jesus Christ from now on you will have enough.

Spiritually, He wants every member of the Church to be strong

And I thank God…, well, I may as well tell you this even though it is information meant for me.

Before this year runs out, every member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God will be spiritually strong.

In 2Kings chapter 1 verse 9 to 12, Elijah had only one portion, single portion of anointing.

With that single portion which is the barest minimum, he was able to call down fire from heaven on his enemies at will – just one portion.

God wants every member, every believer to be strong physically, strong materially, strong spiritually.

Some years ago, some young, young Christians went to riverine area to go and preach the gospel.

It was time to sleep and they had to sleep I think it was one classroom – no window, no net – so mosquitoes zoomed in.

And everybody was slapping themselves, trying to drive away the mosquitoes,

And one of the boys said what is wrong with you? What is happening?

They said, haa, we are driving away mosquitoes.

He said mosquitoes!

They said yes.

He said they don’t trouble me.

Oh! They said you don’t know what you are asking for.

He said watch

He stretch out his hand, as soon as he did mosquitoes came from all over and lighted on his hand and within a minute all of them dropped down dead.

That is the barest minimum anointing that God want for you

The barest minimum – all this ideas mosquitoes bit me, I have malaria, must come to an end.

I want you to stand on your feet, you are going to pray, you are going to pray like champion and say: Father, beginning from now let every form of weakness end in my life.

Open your mouth and pray.

Beginning from now, beginning from now, let every form of weakness: physical, material, and spiritual; let every form weakness end in my life now, now, now. With barest minimum of anointing, mosquitoes coming on you should die; at least the barest minimum. Any form of weakness my Father and my God let it end in my life now, today. I am a child of the Almighty God, I belong to the family of the most High, let every form of weakness come to an end in my life from right now, from right now. Let every form of weakness come to an end in my life right now. Thank You Father. Thank You Jesus. Every form of weakness must end in my life tonight. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

I got a letter from one young fellow today, was it yesterday; he says, he is one of the drummers of our churches.

He wrote to me and says Daddy pray for me I don’t want to be an ordinary Christian.

I said, thank you my son; God has already answered your prayer.

That was my prayer when I became born again: Father, I don’t want to be ordinary Christian; I don’t want to be ordinary.

Is there anybody here who wants to be supernaturally endowed?

Let me hear you shout hallelujah.

Strong is good but stronger is better.

It is good to be strong physically, healthy; It is better to be the one healing the sick.

I thank God for all the testimonies we heard tonight:

Somebody was blind they sent for me, I prayed, the eyes open.

Somebody child died, they sent for me, I prayed, the baby came back to life

I thank God for that.

That will become a daily occurrence in your life.

Because in Mark 16 verse 18, the Bible says these signs shall follow them that believe in My name; they would lay hand on the sick and they shall recover.

I want to encourage you:

He did not say these signs shall follow General Overseer alone; these signs shall follow them that believe.

Are you a believer?

Raise your hands to the Almighty God and say I am a believer.

From now on begin to lay your hands on the sick and they shall recover.

In Acts chapter 3 verse 1 to 8, the Bible tells us the story of Peter who saw the lame man at the beautiful gate, he said to him I don’t have money.

The kind of money you are waiting for I don’t have it but I have something more precious than money.

He said, in the name of Jesus Christ, rise up and walk; and the man rose up and walk

Some of you will say I have never lay hands on the sick before;

What if I lay hand on them and they don’t get heal

Why don’t you try.

What happens if you lay hands and they get healed?

You have to do it first – try

And you know what:

 Even if you lay hands on the first one and the fellow did not get well, lay hand on the second; go on lay hand on the third; go on lay hand on the forth; just keep on obeying God until the miracles begin.

Because is written – it is written – the word of God is there.

I told you the story before:

I was visiting our church in Ilesha after I became General Overseer and they brought a child who was dumb, never spoken a word since the day she was born – she was between eight and ten.

And I prayed for the child; I hope that I will pray and then we would go on believing God.

But the moment I lay my hand on the child and I say in the name of Jesus…

The child said amen.

She did not let me finished the prayer;

I nearly jump out of the window because I was surprise.

That is going to be your testimony very soon.

And you know what?

You will begin tonight.

Daddy what do you mean by ‘you are going to begin tonight’

I have heard that there are some people with very special cases they brought and they are more than a hundred there

Now, I am going to be the one who will lay hand on them but you are going to join your faith with mine.

So when the miracles begin to happen, you will know you are part of it.

In the mighty name of Jesus from now on you will be laying hand on the sick and they will be recovering.

To be strong physically is good, stronger is better.

It is good that you have enough; it is better you are able to make the poor rich – that is when you are a stronger man.

In 2Kings chapter 4 verse 1 to 7, a widow was destitute; they were going to sell her sons, she cried to Elisha.

Elisha said what do you have in the house?

You know the story

She told the story

Elisha said, go and do the following

Before the night was over the woman had more than enough: pay the debtors off.

I decree tonight, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ before March all your debt will be gone.

And then you will become a blessing to others; you will be making others rich.

You know one of these stories

A woman came and says Daddy I am completely destitute and I don’t know what to do.

I say that is no problem and we prayed a simple prayer.

She said, I don’t even have the money to travel back

At that time I did not have much but I took the little I had I gave it to her and I say in the name of Jesus this money will never finish.

I think it was around June

By the Convention, the fellow who had no money to travel back brought a cow for the Convention.

Stretch your hands towards me: I decree right now that these hands will never lack again.

I decree in the name that is above every other name your hands will never be empty again.

Please be seated.

It is good to have enough; it is better to be a blessing to others – Help somebody; make the poor rich; sponsor somebody in the grammar school; sponsor somebody in the University – Proof that you are stronger man.

Spiritually God expects you not only to be free from demons, He expects you to cast out demons whenever you see anyone who is demon possessed.

Acts 16 verse 16 to 18, the Bible tells us there was this girl with the spirit of divination who was following Paul and Silas about.

And Paul turned and said you demon come out of her.

When you know who you are, when you know you belong to God, you don’t have to spend one hour casting out a demon – just command – command and the devil will obey.

How do I know?

Try it.

Have you tried it and it did not work?

I have told you the story:

Several years ago we held a congress at Oshogbo and it was Bible study time; people sat down in groups and they were doing Bible study and I was walking round supervising.

And there was this boy who since he was born had this strange desire to crow into fire.

So the parent kept him far away from the kitchen and he had told the brethren this is my problem.

So some spiritual brethren gathered round him, ready to do battle.

They were rolling their sleeves when they saw me coming and they say thank God Bro is coming.

Because in those days everybody is a bro or sis

Bro means brother for those of you who don’t know and sis stands for sister.

So they saw me coming and they say here comes bro and they said please come and join us to cast out demon out of this fellow.

But I saw the way they were getting ready; I knew they were ready for a long section.

I said no problem, provided you allow me to pray first.

They say okay go ahead.

So I commanded in the mighty name of Jesus that the demon should get out of the boy; I pleaded the blood of the Lamb and commanded in the name of Jesus, come out.

And then I turned my back and I began to go and they said is that all?

I said what else?

You want me to wait for the demon to pack his load in my presence; I have already commanded.

Some days later I was passing through Ife and visited one of my boys

They boy who could not go near fire was the one who prepared my food.

I command tonight, any demon in any of you must go in Jesus’ name.

I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God loud and clear and say: Father, make me stronger than every evil force.

Go ahead, open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Father, make me stronger than every demon, every evil force, every witch, every wizard, make me stronger Lord. Make me stronger than every demon, stronger than every herbalist, stronger than every evil force, make me stronger. Almighty God, make me stronger than the devil himself, let me become a terror, terror to the devil; I don’t want to be an ordinary Christian; I don’t want to be an ordinary Christian Lord God Almighty make me stronger than every evil force. Make me stronger Lord than every evil force. When the devil sees me coming let the devil run; when the witches in my family see me coming let them run to the bush; make me stronger, much stronger than all my enemies; make me stronger Lord. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Now, you would ask me because if what I am saying is true it means when you see that witch that you have been running away from; the witch will be the one running away from you now.

You say how can this be?

What are the qualifications – what must happen before…?

Haa thank You Father.

The Lord asks me to tell a woman here, He said don’t worry the baby in your womb is doing fine.

This is good news

The Lord asks me to tell someone, He said the change that is holding is holding your business down is broken.

Haa thank You Father.

Daddy asks me to tell someone, He said, I will lift up your head again.

Now, for you to be stronger than your enemy, the first thing that must happen is that you must be supported by the Strongest – there is strong, stronger and then there is strongest.

Because you people will want to say how am sure I am stronger than all the witches in my village?

Eh en, if you are supported by the Strongest, the Almighty God, then nobody can withstand you.

Romans 8:31: if God be for us, who can be against us?

Psalm 24 verse 7 to 10, shows clearly that if God is on your side, if the Lord of host is on your side, the enemy will know that if they mess with you, they are messing with the Commander-in-Chief of the host.

And I am telling you when you are truly on the side of God, God will use even demons to be your servant.

I have told you stories before.

Years ago I was going to Lagos for Mount Zion hour, the programme is to begin at 9:00 and I got to Yaba and I found the whole place was jammed.

There was no way I could reach Yaba and reach Ebute Metta by 9:00.

But then on the bridge there if you turn to the left you can go through Hebert McCauley way and the road is clear.

I did not know you cannot take that road until 10:00am and it was 8:00am and so I told my driver let us go this way and so we branched.

I did not know Policemen were hiding waiting for someone to pass the place

As soon as I branch there they stopped me.

Where are you going?

I said please I am a Pastor I am going to pray

Eh en, you know what to do now.

I said I know what to do but I cannot do it I am a Pastor.

Eh stay there; when it is 10:00 O’clock you can go.

And then just ahead, not too far away there were some area-boys; they were drinking what they normally drink and one of them lifted up his head and saw me and said:

Baba wa Adebooye ni yen; o dabi enipe awon Olopa fe molest e, e je ka lo help e

He said, that is our Daddy Adeboye, it looks as if the Policemen are molesting him, let us go and help.

So they got up, they had no weapons only some empty bottles

When the Policemen saw them coming, they beat a tactical retreat.

And they came to me and said Daddy just continue what you are doing, be praying for us ooo; go.

When God uses demons to deliver you from Policemen then you know you are a stronger man.

How many of you want to be stronger than your enemies?

Shout a big hallelujah.

When you are supported by the Strongest then you can deliver anybody who is in trouble

Because in Philippians chapter 2 verse 9 to 11, the Bible says at the name of Jesus every knee must bow – every knee must bow!

And you need to know that what I am asking you to go and do – to begin to lay hands on the sick, get them healed, cast out demons and so on – it is not going to be by your power; it is not going to be by your might; it is going to be by the Spirit of God.

Zachariah chapter 4 verse 6 says, not by power; not by might, but by my Spirit saith the Lord.

Some of you will remember the story of a lady (I don’t want to mention the name of the town but some of you know her)

She had this peculiar problem: Anybody she forth in a dream will die.

If she forth you in her dream, you are dead fellow.

At first, the people in her family liked it because she was fighting with people the family did not like and they were dying like chicken.

But one day she dreamt that she forth with the mother.

And Mama said, eh en, I am gone.

But Mama said, you better seek help because after finishing me now, you may turn on your children

That was when she came to one of our programmes and a simple prayer set her free.

I want you stand on your feet, you are going to pray a prayer and say:

Father, I am counting on Your support, help me to rescue the captives.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

I am counting on Your support. Thank You Father. Help me, help me; help me to rescue the captives I am counting on Your support. There are several captives in our families, in our homes, in our villages, they need somebody to set them free, Lord, I am counting on Your support; I am counting on Your support. Help me to rescue the captives; help me to rescue the captives; help me Lord to rescue the captives; I don’t want to be an ordinary Christian, I don’t just want to be coming to a church and be shouting hallelujah, I want to be able to go out and rescue the captives, help me, I am counting on Your support. Help me to rescue the captives; help me to rescue the captive; help me to rescue the captive. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

So, you must be supported by the Strongest – that is important.

Number two)

You must be connected to the One who is never tired – connected to the Tireless, the One who is never tired.

Oh amen and amen and amen!

Thank You Daddy

I know this one is for me.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said you will hear no bad news for a long time to come.

Thank You Father.

Why must I be connected to the One who is never tired if I must to go on rescuing the captives?

In 1Samuel chapter 17 verse 1 to 51, David was a giant killer; he rescued a lamb from the lion; he rescued another lamb from a bear.

I like David.

He rescued a nation from a terrorist called Goliath

He was giant killer

But in 2Samuel 21 verse 15 to 17, the Bible said, the giant killer went to war and grew faint, he grew tired.

But for somebody who helped him, he would have died in battle.

In Exodus 17 verse 8 to 13, there was war between Israel and the Amalekaties…

Thank You Lord.

The Lord asks me to tell someone here, He said, relax your victory is not negotiable.

The children of Israel were fighting with the Amalekaties; Moses was on the mountain top

And the Bible says as long as his hands were stretched up Israel was winning

But Moses was a human being his hands became wearied, he got tired and his hands began to come down and the enemy began to win.

We need to be connected to the One who is never tired.

Isaiah chapter 40 verse 28 to 31, it says even young men would go weary after some time

But there is a God who is never tired; there is a God who never falls asleep; God who is never wearied.

So, He said, they that wait upon the Lord, those that are connected to Him shall renew their strength.

You need to be connected to the Almighty God.

You see, because when you begin do the work God is going to begin to use you for…, because beginning from now many of you will cease to be ordinary Christians; …people will be bombarding you  the moment they see God using you to perform miracles; they will be coming from right, left and centre.

You better say amen to that.

They themselves will say to you, rest o; you must rest.

But when they say rest, they will say solve my problem first.

Funny people!

Daddy you must rest

I say I know

After they say rest they say eh please we want to dedicate our church we want you to come.

Rest o but a friend of mine wants to come for special prayers.

But when you are connected to the One who is never tired you will suddenly discover that you yourself don’t know what is called tiredness.

And I am telling you it is true.

Some years ago we were going and fishing, we left Port-Harcourt, travelled all the way to Ilorin, and we got to Ilorin around 8:30, pray for the people there.

And my children who are following me they thought that we are going to sleep in Ilorin but they were waiting for us in Lokoja

So, I said let us go, they said where?

I said, Lokoja

That is still about three hours away!

I said I know; the people there are waiting.

They could not say anything so we got into the car we drove in night, got to Lokoja after 11:00; the people had already gone but we went to the church and we finally slept around 1:00

I woke them up by 5:00 because we have to continue.

We came to Ogbomosho, Oyo, Ibadan and we were then to go to Abeokuta, Ilaro;

But as we were approach Ibadan I just felt the Spirit of God spoke to me: you can go home now

So I announced to my children we will be going home now

They all shouted hallelujah.

I did not know they had been praying.

I want you to stand on your feet and say:

Father, don’t let me be disconnected from You.

Go ahead, talk to the Almighty God.

I want to be perpetually connected to You. From this moment onward, no more weakness, no more tiredness, I want to be perpetually connected to You; as I go about healing the sick, casting out demons, rescuing the perishing, don’t let me be tired, let me be perpetually connected to You; don’t let me be disconnected from You.

Don’t let me be disconnected from You. Don’t let me be disconnected from You. Please Daddy, because I am going forward now in Your name, I am going forward to heal the sick, I am going forward to rescue the perishing, I am going forward to cast out demons, don’t let me be disconnected from You; let me be connected to You forever; because if I wait on You, You will renew my strength constantly; don’t let me be disconnected from You. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

So, we must if we are to do this job we must be supported by the Strongest, connected to the Tireless and inhabited by the Greatest.

1John chapter 4 verse 4…

Haa, thank You Daddy

I can hear somebody singing

Anytime I hear somebody singing like this it means something special is about to happen and it is a Yoruba song he is singing, I will explain it later

But the fellow is singing:

“Oyibiribiri o kan mi o

Oyibiribiri o kan mi o

Oyibiribiri o kan mi o

Anu Oluwa yi kan mi o”

Okay, okay; I am going to allow you to sing it but let me explain what it means in English because they are listening in America, Australia…

It means:

It has been turning and turning

Finally it is my turn

For the mercy of God”

So let us sing that song; go ahead:

Oyibiribiri o kan mi o

Oyibiribiri o kan mi o

Oyibiribiri o kan mi o

Anu Oluwa yi kan mi o”

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah

Only in a Holy Ghost service can you be singing choruses when you are preaching but that is the song I heard and that is the song somebody will sing tonight in Jesus’ name.

You must be inhabited by the Greatest

1John chapter 4 verse 4 said, little children you have overcome them

Why?

Because Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.

You see when you are inhabited by the Almighty; when you are inhabited by the One who is greater than the greatest;

When you are inhabited by the One according to Ephesians 3 verse 20, the Bible says He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think, according to the Power that worketh in us.

When God is inhabiting you, the power to do the impossible becomes available.

When the One in you is the Almighty God, when you command demons to leave, they will not be hearing your voice, they will be hearing the voice of the One who is inside of you 

They will be hearing the voice to the Almighty the One who is Greatest that is the One who is speaking.

You see, like I told those you who are here at the cross over night, the devil can tell by your voice whether you have the authority to ask him to get out.

And I gave an illustration; I said, I somebody is in the toilet and the door is closed and then somebody comes to knock at the door

The way the messenger would answer is different from the way the landlord will answer.

If it is the messenger and you knock, he will say, haa, may be they have been looking for me they did not know I am here

He will say yee..s, yee…s, as if: haa! please forgive me, I have to use the toilet!

But if it is the Landlord and you knock at the door, he would say: YES, who are you to disturbed me this is my house!

The next time the devil come to knock at your door, what are going to say?

Let me hear you shout hallelujah

In 1Peter chapter 4 verse 11, the Bible says when you speak, you speak as an oracle of God.

It is God speaking through you.

What is inside of you will be the One dictating what would be happening in your life.

I have told you the story of a woman who came to our convention in America

She had this demon in her; the demon speaks like a man

Seat down and she will seat down

Don’t go out, she will stay inside.

How do I get rid of this demon?

She heard that there was going to be a convention and so she came

She was praying may be one of the meetings she would be able to come for prayers.

Then it was time for Holy Communion and as I was serving I did not know she had a problem;

I just said if you eat the bread, the bread will bring you healing; when you drink the wine, anything that is not planted in you by God will be uprooted.

Haa!

The woman said glory be to God.

The demon in her said do not dear drink that wine

And she said, haa, your secret is out.                                    

The secret of your enemy is out tonight in Jesus’ name.

Of course she drank the wine and there was no more disturbance.

Who is the one dwelling in you?

If it is the Almighty God, when you speak the enemy will hear His voice coming out of you.

Stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, dwell in me richly.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

Father, dwell in me; dwell in me; make my heart Your throne. Dwell in me Lord not immoral thoughts; dwell in me; dwell in me richly Lord, make Your abode in me; make Your abode in me; dwell in me richly; dwell in richly Lord. Come and dwell in me Father; dwell in me richly, make my heart Your headquarters, dwell in me; dwell in me; dwell in me. Dwell in me richly Daddy; dwell in me richly, come and make my heart Your home; make my heart Your abode; dwell in me richly. Flush out what is not of You out of my entire heart, my entire system come and dwell in me Lord; dwell richly in me. Come and dwell richly in me. Dwell richly in me. Thank You Father. Thank You Jesus. Dwell in me, Daddy dwell in me, not immoral thoughts, not evil forces, You dwell richly in me Lord; dwell richly in me. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Now, as we proceed on the rescue mission because that is what we will be doing now…

In the mighty name of Jesus Christ you will not be the one people will be praying for; from now on you will be the one praying for people.

You will no longer be candidate for deliverance; you will be the one setting the captives free.

In the mighty name of Jesus Christ you will no longer live on handmade down, you will be the one blessing other people.

Now, there is a procedure.

You will need to pay attention to this.

As we proceed on the rescue mission there is a procedure.

Haa, thank You Father

The Lord asks me to tell somebody forget the past, it is a new day.

Daddy asks me to encourage all of you, this is not just to one person – all of you, He asks me to tell you, keep knocking all doors will open this year.

Now, when you want to proceed on this rescue mission, the first thing you start with is Aggressive praise.

In 2Chronicle chapter 20 verse 1 to 25, it was praise alone that give victory to Jehoshaphat – not only did the enemy killed themselves, wealth change hands – Aggressive Praise

You see when you praise God aggressively, He will draw near you

John 4:23 and 24 says clearly God is a Spirit, they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such to worship Him.

When you praise Him aggressively, He will draw near.

That is why you don’t find me at any of our meeting starting our programme praying saying: I bind forces of darkness, demons; I don’t want you to come near why we are preaching

I just praise God.

No enemy would stand where you are praising his enemy.

Your hallelujah from now on must change.

The devil knows those who know that they are victors; the devil knows.

The devil knows it is the winning side that is the shouting side.

You know, several years ago on this camp there was…, we did not have light like we have now.

The little generator had to be switched off by 9:00 but then Nigeria was playing in one of the world cups – I think against Russian – and we were four goals down;

And my children came to me, Daddy, are you just looking?

I said, what is my concern about football?

Haa, we are talking about Nigeria!

I said, okay; I am going out to pray anyway I will pray.

You know when the enemies score a goal, the way people will say Oh!

But I was walking in the bush and all of a sudden I heard goal

I know that is Nigeria.

Very soon I heard goal again; I said that is two.

That day you will remember, we won by five – four.

How many of you remember?

How many victors are here?

Let me hear you shout hallelujah.

Amen

Amen

But don’t let me remind you tomorrow, your hallelujah must be the hallelujah of a victor that the devil himself will know that this fellow knows.

And that must be followed by Aggressive Prayer.

In Matthew 15 verse 21 to 28, when the mother of that daughter who was been tormented by the devil came to Jesus Christ, it was not the mother that was sick; it was not the mother that was demon possessed, it was the daughter.

But she prayed aggressively until the demon was cast out.

She told Jesus, I am not leaving You until my daughter is free.

He said I don’t give the bread of children to dog.

She said, fine, I agree; but this dog is going nowhere until she gets her miracle – Aggressive prayer

You know many at times I see the way some of you pray particularly the big ones among you and I just shake my head.

I shake my head because I can see that what you are asking for is not very important to you.

Years ago, I cannot remember the year now but in the 1980s, I was here on this camp alone in the night crying to God: Daddy, I don’t want to be ordinary Christian.

You told me to leave my job as a lecturer, I did.

Help me; I want power from on high help me.

I am not asking for money, I am not asking for clothes; I am asking for power to do Your work, empower me!

When the matter get serious I said Lord, it is either You empower me or You take me home.

Then He knew I was serious.

On this camp ground there was an earthquake.

Those of you who are old enough, you will remember.

The earthquake brought down pictures that were hanging on the walls as far away as Ijebu-Ode.

The ground shook

The following morning when I came I saw the ground opened.

I prayed because it was matter of life and death and God answered.

He is going to answer somebody tonight.

Aggressive praise, aggressive prayer and whether you like it or not aggressive giving.

If you just want to have enough you don’t have to give aggressively.

But people like me we want to be a blessing to the world; we want to have more than enough.

The elders they have a saying: they said, it is when the eyes is full of water that it can drop on the nose.

And if you want to overcome the enemy because the enemy will try everything to hinder;

The enemy knows that the gospel is spreading, they don’t like it;

That is why they are trying to find ways of making sure that we won’t get the money to do the work.

But they are too late.

I know they will write about that tomorrow.

Can you imagine that all of a sudden after I spoke to my children at Ebute-metta about tithe in passing, it was not the topic; all of a sudden everybody started talking about tithing.

Tithe is not what is done in the church in Nigeria, it is done in the churches all over the world; it has been on for more than a hundred years.

All of a sudden!

Why?

They saw the church is matching on

And whether the devil likes it or not the gate of hell will not prevail.

And you know what?

God is going to bless you much more than you can think possible.

But for you to be able to make the poor rich, be a blessing to the world – you must learn to give aggressively.

If you know the amount of money will spend on missions

If you know how much it cost to rent the house of the missionary in Japan, in Dubai, in Australia, in New Zealand, in one hundred and ninety-six nations of the world, you will know that we must have more than enough.

And who are the people that God will use?

I cannot hear you.

The devil is not happy with what he is seeing

Believe it or not, this auditorium is the best church building in the world.

Oh! Some of you will say you have not seen the basilica, you have not seen…

I have gone round the world

Oh beautiful churches but look at this everywhere is a door, everywhere is a window; as many as we are we don’t need fan, we don’t need air-conditional; we jump, we shout, we generate heat and …

I want you to stand on your feet and pray one prayer and say:

Father, everything I need to serve You provide for me abundantly.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

I am ready to be Your treasurer my Father and my God, everything I need to serve You provide for me abundantly. I promise You Lord I will give aggressively, I will be a good treasurer; everything I need to serve You the way I should please provide for me; provide for me. Thank You Father. I will be a good treasurer Lord try me, prosper me mightily and I will serve You. Everything I need to serve You give to me abundantly, abundantly. Thank You Daddy. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

You know what?

Before June one of you will come to me and say I will pay for the congress.

One of you here will pay for the Convention this year.

Even before the end of this month somebody will contribute towards this arena.

I want to be; I am trying to be gentle but I feel the Spirit of God mightily here tonight.

By the time somebody is coming for the special Holy Ghost service you will bring people with a brand new bus.

Alright

Let me begin to close because we still have prayers to pray.

Above all, your faith must be aggressive.

In Mark 11 verse 22 to 24, the Bible says if only you have faith in God then you will say to this mountain, mountain be thou remove and be thou cast into the sea and it will not disobey.

It says if you have faith in God, whatever you say God will back it up.

And many of you will say that is my problem: I have no faith.

Who told you that?

You have faith, it is only you don’t know, and your faith may be in somebody else not in God, that is the problem.

When you came this evening you did not check the chair you sat on to see whether it can carry your weight.

Did you check it?

You just came and sat down.

Why?

You have faith in the maker of the chair.

You believe that the manufacturer did a good job; you believed the carpenter; you believe the manufacturer.

Many of you have travelled abroad and you have faith in the Pilot

Because you enter the plane, he asks you to seat down, you seat down; he asks you to fasten your belt; they shut the doors and then they take off – they say they are taking you to London

The moment you get into the air, you don’t even know where they are turning.

They could say they are taking you to London; they could be taking you to Libya.

But you have faith in the pilot.

You seat down, they bring you food, you eat, you don’t know where they are going but you have faith in the pilot;

How much more the Maker of heaven and earth;

How much more the Pilot of the universe;

How much more the One who rise on storm;

How much more the One who said peace and there will be peace.

And you know what?

The reason you are here tonight is because you have faith in God.

But God now expects you to put that faith into action – aggressive faith: faith in motion.

Many of you will fight anybody who says the Bible is not the word of God, you will say the fellow is crazy.

Many of you have been saying it for a long time: forever O Lord thy word is settled

If it is in the Bible it is true.

You believe it but put it into action that is the only thing God is waiting for – put it into action – aggressive praise.

I think it was 1979, we wanted to go to America for the first time – myself, my father-in-the-Lord and four other people – we wanted to attend Kenneth Hagin camp meeting.

We knew nobody there

We have never been there

We wrote to them, they said all hotels had been booked but I still said to my people let us go.

How can you go to America when you don’t know there is accommodation waiting?

I said, haa, it is written in my Father’s house there are many mansion; I have gone to prepare a place for you.

If He has gone to prepare a mansion for me in heaven, haha, it is not too difficult for Him to get me a room in America.

Let us go.

I told them if the worst come to the worst they will come and take us to the Police station, we would go and sleep in the Police station.

I have witness here – those who went with me then.

We got to airport and one or two Nigerians who had gone ahead came to meet us and they were trying to help me, phoning hotels.

They were phoning hotels two hours away and they will say fully bulked.

After sometime I said to them, why are you phoning hotels that are two hours away?

We had not transport.

Phone the hotels that are nearest to the venue.

And they laughed at me.

They picked the phone; they called the nearest hotel.

Tell them we are missionaries from Africa we need a room.

The fellow on the other line answered and said you need a room?

He said yes I can give you a room.

Tell him, two rooms.

My father-in-the-Lord is with me, the rest of us can stay together; Papa cannot be squatting with five of us.

The fellow said, eh where do you say you are from?

We said we are missionaries from Africa

He said, I give you two rooms.

I said, good.

He said he will send bus to bring us to the hotel.

We got to the hotel, I was feeling the form and I said sir, are you sure you cannot give us three rooms.

He said, I will give you three rooms.

Stand on your feet and say: Father, I trust in You, don’t let me be ashamed.

Common, open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

I trust in You Daddy don’t let me be ashamed; don’t let me be ashamed, I trust in You; from now on my faith in You is solid, don’t let me be ashamed; don’t let me be ashamed; don’t let me be ashamed. I trust in You Lord, don’t let me be ashamed. I trust in You, Your word is my anchor, Your promise is my anchor, I trust in You Lord don’t let me be ashamed, don’t let me be ashamed; don’t let me be ashamed; don’t let me be ashamed I trust in You. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be

Please be seated.

This is my conclusion now.

Haa, thank You Father.

The Lord asks me to tell someone, He said the fellow will understand; He asked me just to tell you it is done.

Isaiah chapter 60 verse 1 – that is my conclusion

My challenge to every one of you because you are stronger than your enemy; God has made you stronger than your enemy;

For all you need to do now is arise and shine – arise and shine!

Lift up your hands to the Almighty God and say I will arise, I will shine.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

God bless you

You can write down the following prayer point because I am going to give you some time to pray.

Haa, thank You Father.

Prayer point number one: Praise God.

Do it aggressively; praise Him like you have never done before.

When you praise God the way He should be praised, He will arise from His throne and the enemy will scatter.

Praise Him

Then number two: You will say Father from now on let enemy see and run

Number three: Father, please anoint me specially to heal the sick and cast out demons.

Number four: Father, make me a blessing to my generation.

Number five: Father, keep me pure, holy, so that You can dwell in me.

Number six: Father, from now on let me shine for You; let me shine in the darkness of this world.

And number seven: it is your own special request.

Now, the altar is open.

If you want to come to the altars to pray your prayers, you can come.

                        FEBRUARY HOLY GHOST SERVICE

             THEME: STRONGER THAN YOUR ENEMIES (Part 2)

                                          2nd January, 2018.

                                  BY: PASTOR E. A ADEBOYE

Thank You Lord.

Well, let us lift our hands to the most high God and begin to bless His holy name.

Give Him glory, give Him honour, give Him adoration – let Him hear your voice.

Bless the King of kings and the Lord of lords.

There is no one like Him.

Give Him glory, give Him honour, give him adoration

Bless His holy name.

Bless the Ancient of days

Magnify Him

Praise Him

Adore Him

Lift Him high

Magnify Him

Praise Him

Praise Him

Praise Him

Thank You Father

Hallelujah

Thank You Ancient of days

May Your name forever be glorified.

Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we worshipped.

Let us lift our voices to Him loud and clear and say: Father, answer my prayers by fire tonight.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty.

Father, please answer my prayers by fire tonight. Thank You Jesus. Hallelujah. Thank You Lord.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

Jehovah, the Man of war

Your mercy endureth forever and ever

O praise His holy name.

Amen.

 

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

Jehovah, the Man of war

Your mercy endureth forever and ever

O praise His holy name.

Amen.

 

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

Jehovah, the Man of war

Your mercy endureth forever and ever

O praise His holy name.

Amen.

Wonderful Jesus, marvelous Jesus, powerful Jesus, glorious Jesus, miraculous Jesus, everlasting Jesus, loving Jesus, kind Jesus, faithful Jesus, reliable Jesus, glory be to Your holy name, accept our worship in Jesus’ name.

Tonight my Father and my God, the kind of miracles that You have never done before, please, perform them in our lives. In the lives of all those who are here, in the lives of all those who are listening to us all over the world, something so big that we will never forget tonight, Father, do it in all our lives. Thank You Almighty God.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Shake hands with two or three people and say good evening, God bless you and you may be seated for a while; you will be standing very soon.

I will be calling on you to pray very soon before we go to the sermon

I have received a lot of calls and texts and etcetera etcetera

Saying that Daddy why are you not saying something? Can’t you see what is going on?

Well, I am a Christian and as a Christian I belong to the Christian Association of Nigeria and the Christian Association of Nigeria has a Chairman or President.

Whatever He says, that is what I have said.

I am a Pentecostal; I belong to the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria

And the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria has a President

Whatever my president says that is what I have said.

That is how to be under authority.

Amen.

But to you my children and this time I am talking to my children alone.

I am not talking to Nigerians; this is not a press conference; I am talking to my children.

You see there are two sides of me:

One side is a Mathematician

The other is a Pastor

And somehow I cannot separate the two for long.

So, before I ask you to pray I am going to spell out some equations which we will solve simultaneously after which will do what we should do.

Equation 1: There are certain problems beyond man – there are certain problems man cannot solve.

Equation 2: There is no problem beyond God (that is equation 2) – Luke chapter 18 verse 27

Thank You Father

We want to spell out equations but God asks me tell somebody you have been suffering from severe neck pain, it started as if you did not sleep well but continue to become something serious; He asked me to tell you, the pain is gone.

So, where are we now?

Equation 2 – No problem beyond God – Luke 18:27

Equation 3 says: Man can hide from man – A man can hide from other men.

Equation 4 says: NO man can hide from God 

Psalm 139 verse 7 to 12: David said, where can I hide from Your Spirit? If I go to the top of the mountain You are there; I go to the bottom of the sea, You are there – there is no where I can hide.

Equation 5 says: Security Agents can be compromised – you can bride your way from the clutches of security agents – Security agent can be compromised.

Equation 6 says: God cannot be compromised – His holiness is not negotiable.

Isaiah chapter 6 verse 1 to 3: the angels are always crying holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty.

Equation (which equation is that one now?) 7 says: Man can sponsor evil – it is possible for man to sponsor evil.

Esther chapter 3 verse 8 to 9: A man called Haman said to the king, I want you to destroy the Jews; here is money for you to do it – I will pay you for killing the Jews

Equation 8 says: God cannot sponsor evil – it is impossible for God to sponsor evil – Job chapter 8 verse 20

So, we have eight simultaneous equations

If we solve these equations simultaneously, there is only one answer: “the Prayer Warrior is more effective than the Activist” – that is the solution.

If we put it another way, in a slightly deeper way, you will come to the conclusion that – you can call that the corollary – that, the enemies of God and the children of God make the same mistake.

There is only one mistake that is common to both the enemies of God and the children of God – they have one mistake in common

And what is that mistake?

Both of them underrate the power of prayer.

The enemies of God underrate the power of prayer;

We the children of God underrate the power of prayer.

But there are some of us who have come to realize that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, and they are mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holes.

So, that is why I am calling on you my children, I am talking to my children; I am going to ask you to pray some prayers tonight.

I want you to pray with the same energy, with the same intensity with which we pray the prayer against kidnappers when they kidnapped those school children and result came rapidly.

I don’t want you to pray like ladies and gentlemen tonight, I want you to pray like the children of the Lion of the tribe of Judah.

Are you ready to pray?

Stand on your feet and let me hear shout hallelujah.

You will lift voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, wherever those who are shedding blood are hiding, expose them and deal with them.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

They cannot hide from You, You know where they are, expose them Lord and deal with them. All those who are shedding blood, wherever they are hiding, expose them and deal with them; expose them, deal with them. Almighty God, they cannot hide from You, You know where they are, expose them and deal with them. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

You are going to pray prayer number two and say: Father, all those who are condoling evil, all those who are conniving with them, expose them and deal with them.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

All those who are condoling the evil doers, all those who are conniving with evil doers, Almighty God wherever they are; all those who have been compromised by evil doers, expose them and deal with them; expose them and deal them, You are the Almighty, You are the Almighty God, show Yourself mighty; show Yourself mighty O Lord, expose them and deal with them. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Prayer number three: you will say: Father, all those who are sponsoring evil and bloodshed, expose them and destroy them.

Go ahead and talk to the Almighty God.

All those who are sponsoring evil, all those who are sponsoring bloodshed, don’t just expose them, destroy them; destroy them; Holy One of Israel arise, expose all those who are sponsoring evil, all those who are sponsoring bloodshed, Father expose them and deal with them. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Just one more prayer; this one we want to make it a bit personal.

You will lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, anyone focusing on me, my family, Your church, for evil intensions, Father, destroy them.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Anyone focusing on me, my family, Your church, for evil intensions, Oh ***speaking in the Spirit*** Father, destroy them; wipe them out; wipe them out Lord. All those who are focusing on me, focusing on my family, focusing on my ministry, focusing on Your church, for evil intensions, haa, Father, wipe them out. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

You better let the heaven hear your amen.

I said so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Good!

Now, if you believe that the answer is going to come, let me hear you shout hallelujah.

God bless you

You may please be seated.

Now we are talking about Stronger than your Enemies Part Two

Our text as from last month is in Luke chapter 11 verses 21 and 22:

21When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

Now that is the main text.

The text for part two for tonight in found in Mark 11 from verse 22 to 23:

22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have Faith in God.

Turn to your neighbour and say have faith in God.

Say it one more time.

Say it the third time so that they will know it is serious

Okay

23 For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Please help me prophesy to your neighbour, God will answer you by fire tonight.

Now, let us spend few minutes appealing to those who are not yet children of God to surrender their lives to Jesus.

You see, it is not possible for a sinner to be stronger than his enemy.

Because according to the word of God, the hand of the sinner is weaken from heaven.

God says is in Proverb 13 verse 15, He says the ways of transgressors are hard.

The Yoruba interpretation is so accurate.

It says: God has given travail to the sinner.

In other words, the sinner is programmed to fail by God Himself.

In Proverbs chapter 11 verse 21, God said, even if hands join hands, a sinner will not go unpunished.

In other words, there is no way a sinner can overcome his enemy.

God saying even if he is hiding among the rest of us, if he singing with us, shouting with us but he is living in sin, God say there is no way he can escape punishment.

When you read Deuteronomy 28 verse 1 and 7,, the Bible says when you hearken diligently to voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all that He commands you;

He says in verse 7: when enemies come against you in one way, they will flee seven ways.

In other words, if you are child of God, the Almighty God said I will already fight your battles for you.

And if God is fighting for you, if He is the One smiting your enemies, there is no way the enemies can win.

However, if you are a sinner, according to Proverbs 28 verse 1, it says, the sinner flew when nobody is even pursuing him.

In other words, even when there are no enemies, a sinner will still be running.

I saw someone several years ago

He looked up he said haa you people followed me here.

I said, which people?

He said can’t you see?

When I looked up the only thing I saw was a lizard.

Haa, he said you don’t know them, they can change to lizard.

Sinners flee when nobody is pursuing.

So, there is no way sinner can be stronger than his enemies, he is already running, he cannot even stay to fight.

And then it shows clearly in John chapter 5 verse 2 to 14, it tells us that if God should give a sinner victory by grace, if God graciously decide to give victory to a sinner, something more terrible will still come upon him – the story of man who was sick for thirty-eight years.

And Jesus healed him without even asking him to give his life.

But he told him, if you continue with your sin something worse will come.

The Bible stated it clearly, Romans chapter 6 verse 23: the wages of sin is death.

There is no way the sinner can defeat the enemy – no way – the odd against him is too high.

Sinner will die because the wages of sin is death.

But if the sinner will surrender to Jesus then God says he will get the gift of life.

So in brief, those of you listening to me and you have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus; you have a choice to make.

In Deuteronomy chapter 30 from verse 19 to 20, God said, I AM placing before you a choice blessing or cursing; life or death; He said chose life that you and your seed may live.

You can continue to live in your sin and continue to be defeated.

Or you can come to the Lord Jesus Christ and have the Lord of host as your ally.

If God is behind you, if God is for you, there is no enemy that can withstand you.

So for two/three minutes those of you who are yet to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, come and do so now.

I am going to count from one to ten; if by the time I say ten you are not already standing before me I will know you have made up your mind you want to remain in your sin, no problem;

The enemy will like that very much because they will keep on dominating you.

But if you are tired of being dominated by your enemies and you want to be stronger than your enemies, come and surrender your life to Jesus; let His blood wash away your sins and you have a brand new beginning.

I am counting now:

One,

And those of you in the old arena you just go towards the altar there are men of God there who will attend to you.

Two,

Those of you at the other viewing stations just move towards the altar and the men of God there will attend to you also.

Surrender your life to Jesus and He will save your soul.

Three,

Now, don’t come to Him if you are not ready for a new life because if you come to Him you must say bye-bye to a life of sin; you must be ready to live a holy live for the Almighty God that is the condition.

When He said come unto me all ye that labour and heavy laden and I will give you rest, He said you must be ready to take My yoke upon you – the yoke of holiness.

Four, five, six,

Thank you those of you who are clapping

Seven, eight, nine,

Now, those of you who have come and those of you who are on the way begin to cry to Jesus now: ask Him to have mercy on you, ask Him to save your soul, ask Him to please forgive all your sin, promise Him from now on you will serve Him, ask Him to be Your Lord, ask Him to be Your Saviour; promise Him from this day onward you will be one of His children doing His will. The rest of us let us stretch our hands towards these people and intercede for them: pray that the One who saved our souls will save their own souls also; pray that God will give them a brand new beginning; let us intercede for them. If you are still on the way you have to hurry up now because the time for this section is almost over; come very quickly. Oh thank You Jesus. Let us pray for them for another thirty seconds, anyone still coming you have to hurry up, hurry up here, hurry up in the old arena, hurry up in the other viewing centres and cry to the Almighty God: ask God to be merciful unto you, ask God to forgive all your sin, ask Him to give you a new beginning; promise Him from now I will serve You, I will do Your will, I am tired of the devil anyway, I don’t want to live a life to sin anymore. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

My Father and my God I want to thank You for Your word and I want to thank You for your promise that whosoever will come unto You, You will no wise cast out; these people have come to You now please receive them in Jesus’ name; have mercy on them; save their souls; let Your blood wash away their sins; receive them into the family of God, give them a brand new beginning; please Lord don’t let them backslide, let them serve You till the very end.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Amen.

Praise the Lord.

Now, those of you in front I want to rejoice with you because from now by God’s grace I will be praying for you so I am going to need your names, your address and your prayer requests.

And the Counselors will give you cards which I want you to fill, just put the information I need very quickly; return the card to the Counselor and I promise you I will be praying for you.

God bless you.

Mark 11:22 to 23 says we should have faith in God, I believe that one is easy.

If we don’t have faith in God I don’t think we will be here tonight.

And He says if we have faith and we doubt not we will say to this mountain be thou removed and be thou cast into sea; as long as we don’t doubt, it shall be so.

Now, a mountain symbolizes a huge enemy: a strong adversary well rooted; a hindering force.

Mountain is something that says you are not going forward.

So what do we do if we find such a mountain in our lives?

I am going to beg you tonight to pray like you have never prayed before because Daddy promised me – and I think I have told you in some of the prophesies for the year – that mountains are going to move.

And since the prophesy He gave for examples for the international seeing are already coming to past: increase in flood; cold getting colder, hot getting hotter;

If you have been following the news, count down to the last has started.

If you listen to the news you will hear the Scientist saying now that the clock for the doom day has been moved forward to two minutes before midnight.

Even the Scientists have come out to say the end is near.

So if all these prophesy are already coming to past, I want the one about mountains moving to begin in your life right now.

So, what do we do if we find a mountain or we identify a mountain in our lives?

First thing is: Don’t ignore the mountain – You have to confront in order to conquer.

What you tolerate stays with you.

But what you confront, you can conquer.

In Matthew chapter 18 verse 18, the Bible says whatsoever you bind on earth is bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Bible scholars say what that means is whatever you allow, God will allow it; whatever you forbid, God will forbid it.

As long as you tolerate the mountain, it will stay.

In 2Kings chapter 4 verse 1 to 7, that widow of one of the sons of the Prophets, kept on tolerating poverty until the creditors came and said your children; then she woke up.

The day she cried out for help that is the day help came.

Help is going to come to somebody today.

In Matthew chapter 8 verse 1 to 4, the Bible tells us about a leper who came to Jesus Christ.

Only God knows how long he had been a leper.

He had been tolerating it; incurable disease, isolation; he kept on tolerating until one day he said no more – that was the day he was healed.

In Mark chapter 10 verse 46 to 52, for forty years Bartimaeus had been begging, he has surrendered to darkness.

He said, okay, O God made me this way; so he kept on begging.

But one day he made up his mind, ha ha, no more; no more darkness; no more begging; I want to see light.

The day he cried was the day he was free.

In Joshua chapter 5 if you read it from verse 13 and go all the way to Joshua chapter 6 verse 5 (Joshua 5 verse 13 to Joshua chapter 6 verse 5), you will see that Joshua was faced with the wall of Jericho

He did not pretend as if there was no wall

No no no

He went to see the wall; to see how do I confront this wall?

It was why they are trying to confront the wall that help came – that an angel came from heaven and told him what to do to get rid of that wall.

Do not ignore your problem.

Let us together confront it today so that this mountain can move.

I have told the story before of a sister who was barren

Year after year the Pastor kept on praying.

After sometime the Pastor said haha Sister, I have prayed for all others they have come to testify; what is the problem?

Oh, well, when I was a student I became pregnant by mistake and I aborted.

In the process of abortion, the Doctors in order to save my life when I was bleeding removed my womb.

Oh! Pastor said that is the problem you have been hiding – you have no womb and you ask me to be praying to God for children.

Pastor you are the one who said with God all things are possible!

The Pastor said I see.

From that day onward whenever the Pastor saw her coming, the Pastor will run.

One day she saw the pastor running because by the time she arrived they will say the pastor had gone out – she saw the pastor running.

She decides I will stop talking to man, I will talk to God.

That day she cried to the Almighty God

You all know the testimony at least some of you do.

That night she had a dream

In the dream she was standing stack neck and huge man worked into the room, holding the skin of an animal.

She was so frightened when she saw the size of the man; she could not move.

When the man got to her, he rapped the skin of the animal round her waist.

By the time she woke up she was menstruating again.

She knew God had given her brand new womb.

I think by the time she was sharing her testimony I cannot remember how many children she has – five or so.

Stand on your feet, stop talking to man, let us talk to God together.

Lift your voice and say: Father, I need help, help me right now.

Common, talk to the Almighty God

Do not pretend that you don’t have a mountain, let us confront the mountain so that it can be moved; let us confront this enemy so that we can conquer. Father, Adeboye needs help, I need Your help right now, right now, I need Your help; I need Your help Lord, I need Your help and I need it right now, I need Your help right now, help me. I need Your help, Almighty God I need Your help and I need it right now; help me, help me tonight; help me tonight. I need help, I need the help only You can give me, I am not talking to the Pastor, I am not talking to the Apostle, I need Your help Lord; it is Your help that I need; it is Your help that I need, Daddy You have to help me; help me and help me right now, right now, right now. I need Your help Daddy and I need it now. Thank You. Glory be to Your name. I need Your help Lord, I need it right now. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated

I know you are just beginning to warm up, you will pray with all your strength later.

Second thing you should is: Talk to the mountain.

Jesus Himself said so

He said …if you shall say to the mountain…

Engage the mountain in a conversation.

What kind of conversation?

Tell the mountain there are two of us now: you and I and one of us have to move.

Mountain, the one is going to move is not me.

Talk to your mountain and explain to the mountain the reason why you are not the one who will move.

Psalm 16 verse 8, it is written I have set the Lord always before me, my focus is on the Lord; He is at my right hand.

The Bible said so – the Lord is my shadow upon my right hand, so, I shall not be moved – it is written Psalm 16 verse 8

Mountain, listen carefully, I set the Lord always before me, He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.

Psalm 62 verse 6 – in case the mountain did not hear that – Psalm 62 verse 6: the Lord is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense, I shall not be moved.

Mountain, Jesus is my rock, is on Him I am planted: He is my salvation, I am saved; He is my defense – in case you think I am talking about my own strength, no no no, He is my defense – therefore I shall not be moved.

Psalm 125 verse 1 tell the mountain: my trust is in Him, in God; I am as mount zion in case you are just looking at an ordinary man, eh en,  I am as mount zion that can never be removed; it abides ever.

Mountain, there are two of us, you and I, one has to move and it is not me.

Hebrews 13 verrse 8 says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever – He is constant and He is unmovable.

And according to Acts 17 verse 28, it is in Him I live, I move and I have my being.

Mountain unless you can change Jesus that is when you can move me because I am in Jesus it is in Him I live, it is in I move, it is in I have my being and He is constant.

Not only I mine living in Him, He is also living in me.

Galatians chapter 2 verse 20: I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live.

The life which I live now is not me living, it is the Almighty Son of God that is living in me.

So Mountain in case you have not heard all I have said Psalm 121 from verse 1 to 3 says: I will lift up my eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help? My help cometh from the Lord who made heaven and the earth; He will not suffer my foot to be moved.

Glory be to God.

When the mountain knows that you know that you are not going to move; when it realizes you are not going to move, it is the mountain that we move.

I have told a story before:

Long ago, when I was very tiny, in the Primary school there was a bully there, big boy, bigger than I – I was very tiny, very weakly looking

So he was always picking on me: always beating me, slapping me, knocking me on the head

He knew I could not fight back he was too big.

But one day I just decided enough is enough and I just got this inspiration: I will fight this fellow; he will kill me, I know that one for sure;

But then if he kills me the government will kill him so it will be drawn game.

Soon the day came and he slapped me as he used to

I told him do not do that again

He said you spoke?

I said yes.

So he came back and hit me – knock me down

I got up and I began to fight him.

He kept on knocking me down and I kept getting up fighting

Knocking me down, I got up fighting

After awhile it entered into his thick head – this boy want to die; if I kill him I will be in trouble

He started running and I pursued him.

Stand on your feet and lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, in the mighty name of Jesus, I say to my mountain move.

Go ahead; open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Mountain move, in the mighty name of Jesus move because I am not moving, I am not moving mountain, I am not moving, so mountain you move right now in the mighty name of Jesus; I ask you to move. Haha Mountain you have to move and you are moving tonight, you are moving tonight, you are moving tonight not tomorrow, you are moving tonight. You move mountain, you have to move because I am not going anywhere, I am not moving; I am not moving; I am not moving; I am not moving; I am not moving. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, Mountain you are the one who will move, you are the one who will move, you are the one who will move, you are the one who will move; mountain you are the one who will move. Lagbara Olorun Eledumare, you are the one who will move. Mountain you are the one to move, you move. In the Name that is above every other name, mountain you move; you have to move; mountain you have to move, you have to move tonight in the mighty name of Jesus Christ; mountain you move, you move, you move, you move. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Now, you have to explain to the mountain why it has to move.

And the principal reason why the mountain must move out of your life is because it is blocking your view

As they say in Yoruba land – Je kin’ro kan (let me see where I am going)

Proverbs 29 verse 18 says where there is no vision people perish.

As long as there is a mountain blocking your view, there is a possibility of you perishing.

Proverbs 29 verse 18, where there is no vision people perish and I refuse to perish.

Psalm 100 verse 2 says I am to serve God with gladness; I am to serve God with gladness!

So, anything that is not allowing you to serve God with gladness should not be tolerated.

There are many of us who want to do mighty things for God; something is not allowing us to do some; we had to deal with that something.

The lame man by the Beautiful gate saw people going in and out, going and out (we will probably be talking more about him during the Special Divine Encounter Programme) and he saw the way they are dancing, saw the way they are worshiping God

And he said, ha, O God, how I wish I have legs, I would have show these people how to dance.

There are some of us we want to serve God but there is still comma in our lives

This is not allowing us to serve God with gladness, it has to go.

I say, it has to go.

In Mark chapter 8 verse 10, saying the joy of the Lord that is my strength.

Mountain that are causing me sorrow you are eroding my strength by blocking my vision; you are eroding my strength.

Because you see, Job chapter 17 verse 7 tells us that sorrow deems our eyes

When you are sad, you cannot see clearly.

Sorrow is something you cannot tolerate.

I have told you the story of a lady who came to us several years ago:

Fervent lady, she wanted to serve God but she had a mountain.

The mountain she has is: she has four daughters; the youngest of them was twenty-eight and no man had ever said ‘how now’ to any of them

So, the woman said I will wake up in the morning I feel like going out, ringing my bell, telling people to give their live to Jesus

And the devil would say Jesus mama; Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, look at you – you have four daughters all of them living with you; no husband.

She cried out.

You have heard me told the story before

God intervened

All four got married within a year.

Stand on your feet; lift your voice to the Almighty God loud and clear and say: Father, in the name of Jesus, everything that is not allowing me to serve You with joy must go tonight.

Go ahead, cry to the Almighty God. This is not a joking matter; this is not the time to Joke.

Everything that is not allowing me to serve You with gladness must go tonight whatever it takes. If it is sickness, it must go; if it is poverty, it must go; if it is loneliness, it must go; everything that is not allowing me to serve You with gladness must go, must go, must go tonight. In the Name that is above every other name, everything that is not allowing me to have fullness of joy must go, must go, must go tonight, must go tonight, must go tonight, must go tonight, must go tonight. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, everything that is not allowing me to serve God with fullness of joy must go tonight, must go tonight, not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, ha ha it must go tonight in the name of Jesus Christ; mountain you have to move, mountain you have to move, you have to move, ***speaking in the Holy Spirit***, mountain you have to move; you have to move. Every hindrance to my joy, everything that is not allowing me to serve my God with gladness has to go and it has to go tonight; it has to go tonight – if it is sickness, it has to go tonight; if it is barrenness, it has to go tonight; if it is poverty, it has to go tonight; whatever it is that is not allowing me to serve God with the fullness of joy must go tonight; must go tonight. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Jesus. Thank You.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus mighty name.

Please be seated.

I am not doing too badly but I hope that you know that destinies are being determined tonight and it is all in your own mouth, it is up to you.

The Bible says death and life are in the power of the tongue

If you like pray seriously; if you like pray casually.

But if you are man or woman of spirit you will know that I am not here to joke tonight.

And you have to tell the mountain: Mountain, I am not advising you; I am not advising – not advise at all.

You see because when you go through the scriptures you can see that there are various ways of talking:

There could be advice like in Deuteronomy 30 verse 19 where God said choose between life and death but He said I advice you choose life.

And/or there could be another kind of speaking when you are pleading

In Ezekiel 33 verse 11, God was pleading with house of Israel: He said, I don’t have pleasure in the death of a sinner, I want you to repent, live – He said turn and live why should you die.

He was pleading.

But in Matthew 28 verse 18 to 20, it was a command: go ye into the world

That is a command; that is not advice; that is not a plea.

But there is stronger one – stronger way of speaking – and that is a decree.

When God said in Genesis 1 verse 3, let there be light

It was not an advice, it was not a plea, it was not a command, it was a decree: let there be light and immediately there was light.

And I thank God for the preacher who spoke before me

He said, you are a voice, you are not an echo, don’t let the devil reduce you to a wiping little dog.

You are the children of the Lion of Judah and when your Father speaks, He roars.

The Bible say God has spoken once, twice have I heard it that power belongs to God.

Don’t let the circumstances around you reduce you to somebody who is whispering, you have the Almighty God dwelling in you.

Greater is He that is in you that he that is in the world.

When you speak you should roar

Let the mountain hear you roaring at it.

When your read Job chapter 22 verse 21 to 28, you will understand why I am crying about holiness.

Because it says if iniquity be in your hand, send it far away; send it far away, don’t toil with sin.

It says if you live holy it says you will decree a thing and it shall be established unto you.

Christian life becomes enjoyable if when you say something and it comes to pass.

Somebody asks long ago, when you say there is someone here… etcetera etcetera, are you prophesying or are you decreeing?

Haa! I said take your choice.

If it is a prophesy it is settled

If my Father inspires me to decree, oh, we get the result before the following morning.

That is where holiness comes in

I travelled abroad; I was away for two weeks.

I came back it was very hot

So I asked my children who came to meet me at the airport – I asked one of my daughters – what happened it has not rain?

She said no rain.

I said it will rain.

An hour later it started to rain.

So the following day she came to me and say Daddy what is it?

We have been praying for rain for two weeks it did not rain.

You came and you said casually it will rain

One hour later it was raining.

I said, well, did you obey your mother all the time while I was away?

You know mama now; if we don’t obey her fire will fall.

I say I know.

But when she asked you to do something, did you grumble.

Eh you know she will always send you on an errand at a time when you want to enjoy yourself.

So you grumbled.

Hmm, well, it is written, honour your mother and your father.

You stop grumbling, you will issue a decree and it will be established.

I have told you the story before:

I went to Kogi, it was in Lokoja and as we were driving through the main street I saw a huge tree in the middle of the road – capital city – the road had to bend round the tree.

I asked the fellow who was driving me

Haa, it is a sacred tree.

Eh en, sacred tree! In the middle of the road!

I said the tree will fall.

We went; we held our programme; came back and that night there was storm

By the following morning the tree was on its side, uprooted from the bottom.

Stand on your feet; lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, tonight I decree every mountain in my life move now.

Open your mouth and cry to Him.

I decree in the name that is above every other name, mountain move. I decree, I decree, mountain move. ***speaking in the Holy Spirit***. Move mountain. I decree tonight every mountain I am not advising you; mountain I am not begging you, I am not pleading, I decree mountain move, move; move mountain I decree it. In the mighty name of Jesus I decree mountain move, mountain move, mountain move, mountain move; ***speaking in the Holy Spirit**, mountain you have to move, you have to move. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ every mountain in my life move now. Thank You Father. Glory be to God. **speaking in the Holy Spirit ****Thank You Father. Thank You Almighty God. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Lord.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

I join my faith with yours and I decree every mountain in your life shall move tonight.

So shall it be in Jesus mighty name.

Please be seated.

Thank You my Father.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said your brain needs revival, He asked me to tell you I will breathe on it.

Years ago we used to have a meeting of what we were calling state pastors at that time every month.

And whenever we meet there was this one of us who will always say I have a testimony.

So, after sometime his colleague nicknamed him Mr. Testimony

And the reason Lord asks me to tell you that testimony is this:

He said there is someone here with loads of problems; very soon you will have loads of testimonies.

 Glory be to God.

Daddy asks me to tell somebody, He said power that raises Jesus from the dead will raise you from your present situation.

Now, I said if you talk to the mountain…, I am happy you are already talking to the mountain;

But if you pay attention to that passage, it says you should tell the mountain where it should go.

Say to this mountain be thou remove, you have already been saying that and be thou cast into the sea.

In other words, the Lord is saying you must do a thorough job tonight -You must finish the job tonight.

Don’t leave any of it till tomorrow; you must finish the job tonight.

Whatever it is going to cost, let us finish the job tonight.

You see because if you leave any little mountain behind, it will become a bigger one in future.

In Joshua chapter 11 verse 22, God as spoken to Joshua, the children of Israel, posses the land.

Eh eh, well, they took a lot of the land but they left some giants in Gaza and in Gath

I am sure you know immediately what that means.

Years later, one of the children produced by the people children of Israel left behind was Goliath.

He came from the leftover.

There will be no leftover mountain tonight.

When you kill Goliath tonight you must do what David did.

What did he do?

I am happy to hear that.

1Samuel 17 from verse 49 to 51: Goliath was already dead, the Rock of Ages have already smashed his head;

David did not stop there; God provided the weapon for cutting up the head.

There was story I read, the first I read I did not quite understand – it is found in Joshua chapter 7 from verse 1 to the end.

Joshua chapter 7: the children of Israel had had a mighty victory in Joshua chapter 6;

Then they got to Joshua chapter 7 and they attacked a small city and they were defeated.

Haa! What happen?

Joshua went before God: God this is not our agreement; You told me I will be stronger than my enemies and now I am running before my enemies.

What is the problem?

God says sin has entered the camp; you have to do something about it.

And then they discover that there was a man called Achan he went and stole what belong to God.

So, when they discover, Oga, what happen?

He said, it is true I stole God’s money.

And where is it?

He showed them and brought it out.

Joshua did not say: okay, my boy that is alright.

No o

He asked him to go and bring every member of his family, every member of his family.

If you kill mama snake and you leave bee snake; the bee snake will become mama snake.

That is not even the point

After they killed him and his entire family after they stone them to death and they were thoroughly dead, the Bible said they burnt them to be sure they are doubly dead;

And they heaped a great heap of stone over them.

In Yoruba they will say: atorun d’orun re

In other words, die thoroughly.

When you are dealing with your mountain you must not toil with it, you must tell it where to go.

Because if you leave a little bit of it behind that little bit will become the big problem later on.

I have told you the story before of a hunter who went hunting

When he went hunting he saw a tiger – I think I a tiger; either tiger or jaguar anyone.

Kill the tiger and all of a sudden he discover it has a little baby

And since a baby tiger cannot…, just like a house cat; he pick it up and brought it to the village.

The Chiefs saw the baby tiger and said hunter you brought a tiger!

He said, is a baby tiger; is armless.

And the baby tiger began to grow and he was eating everything they gave it ordinarily the kind of food people eat in the home

And the son of the hunter was choosing it has a bet, riding it all over the place.

Then one day, the son of the hunter was riding the tiger to the village stream

True story

And the then on the way the tiger stumbled a little and the boy fell

And when he fell, it scratched his hand on a tomb and blood began to flow

And when the tiger saw the blood he wanted help the friend – the little boy – so it licked the blood

And when it did, that what is in the tiger that makes it tiger came out

And with the twinkling of an eye the boy was dead and tiger went towards the village killing everybody he met on the way.

When you are dealing with your mountain, finish the job.

Stand on your feet; lift your voice to the Almighty God loud and clear and say: Father, every mountain leaving me today must go to the sea and perish.

Open your mouth and pray.

Every mountain and there must be none of them left they must all go now to the sea and perish. Every one of them, every one of them, every one of them, don’t leave any behind, don’t leave any behind, every mountain must go and go to the sea and perish there; go to the sea and perish there; go to the sea and perish there; must go to the sea and perish there; go to the sea and perish. Every little tiger in my life must die too; every mountain must go to the sea right now; they must not just leave me, they must go to the sea and perish there. Any attack that has come from the enemy must go back to the sender, let the sender deal with it; no mountain must remain untouched, every mountain must go to the sea and perish. Thank You Father. Every mountain must go to the sea and perish there in the mighty name of Jesus. Thank You Father. Go to the sea and perish there, even now as I am praying. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Oh thank You Father.

I want to say amen to this before I tell you

Because Daddy says there is somebody here tonight, He said throughout this year you will have nothing to regret.

Once upon a time there was a bird and the bird was flying in the sky and a hunter shot at it but the bullet missed the bird but hit only one wing and so the bird fell.

Before the hunter can come to finish the job the bird had manage to crawl away into hiding.

That night the bird cried to God saying: You Almighty God because You saved my life You can heal my wing and then the bird fell asleep

When the bird woke the following morning the wing had been heal so the bird began to fly again praising God.

The Lord asks me to tell someone you will fly again.

Okay

Daddy is the One asking me to tell stories tonight O

I have told you before:

Some years ago I was attending a conference and I was one of the guest speakers

I was standing outside the hall – the hall was big but the crowd was large

And there was this young man who saw me thought it was an opportunity for him to chat

So he came and was talking and was chatting and people were rushing him

Because even though the hall was big the chairs were not enough.

After sometime I said to the young man: Oga, I am enjoying the conversation but I hope you know that in there my seat is reserved and your own is not.

He left talking to me and ran.

The Lord asked me to tell the story to one particular person, He said He want to remind you that your seat at the top is reserved.

Now, Jesus said if you shall say to this mountain – in other word you must be specific

Not just any mountain, not just all mountain, ‘this’ particular mountain – be specific.

Your own mountain might be sickness

Say to the mountain of sickness: it is written, 1Peter chapter 2 verse 24 – by the stripes of Jesus I am heal.

If it is demons troubling you say specifically to the demons: it is written, Revelation chapter 12 verse 10 to 11 – I overcome you by the blood of the Lamb.

Tell the demon, it is written at the name of Jesus every knee must bow including you demon.

If it is poverty that is your mountain speak to it specifically, tell him Jesus became poor that I might become rich – 2Corinthians 8 verse 9

I know whenever they say it is time to sing the special song for a Holy Ghost service, some of us just sing the song, we enjoy it, we are waiting till the end so that you can shout hallelujah.

Pay attention to the wordings.

I am a Mathematicians; I am a Pastor; I am not a really song writer

But you see month after month He gives me a song for you

If you look at the song that we sang you will see it there:

I refuse to die because I live in Christ He lives in me.

I am stronger than sickness because His stripe is working for me.

I am stronger than all lack because He became poor that I be rich.

Be specific.

It is all in the song.

If your problem is persistent failure, tell failure I rebuke by the presence of Jesus in my boat.

You know Peter failed, Jesus came in and the failure became a success.

If it is stagnation, you have been on one sport all this year; the people they employed after you had been promoted after you; when there is donkey work to be done they call you;

When it time for promotion they promote the fellow in the club where they are drinking beer

That cannot continue – No!

If you work like an Elephant, you must eat like an Elephant from now on.

If you agree with me say amen.

If it is stagnation, rebuke it.

Tell the stagnation listen Jesus Christ said if I will be lifted up from the earth I will draw men unto me; I rebuke you by the resurrection and accession of Jesus Christ, He is already be lifted up from the earth, no more stagnation for me.

Be specific.

I am not going to go on telling you more stories because time is gone

But I am going to give you some two/three minutes to talk specifically, mention your own mountain – the mountain you know: the mountain of sickness, the mountain of poverty, the mountain of demonic oppression, the mountain of failure, the mountain of defeat…

Stand on your feet and just go ahead and rebuke them

And say: in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, mention the mountain – the particular mountain in your life – and tell it go to the sea

You sickness I command you disappear; cancer I rebuke in the mighty name of Jesus Christ go and jump into the sea; blindness I command you in the mighty name of Jesus Christ go and jump into the sea. Failure I command you in the Name that is above every other name go and jump into the sea. Be specific. Be specific. Be specific. Thank You Father. Don’t tolerate any longer, tell it you have to go – mention the name. **speaking in the Holy Spirit***. You know your own mountain talk to it specifically; tell it to go and jump into the ocean; do so tonight, let it go and jump into the ocean. Hallelujah Father. **speaking in the Holy Spirit***. Thank You Father. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Finally, please be seated.

I am rounding up now because I want the Ministers of God to lay hands on you tonight to combine their faith with yours.

After you commanded the mountains to move and I believe God had had you, your decree had been established.

The next we should do is that we must remember to return all glory to God.

The one who preached before me said life is war – you finish one battle another one may come forward.

If after God has done marvelous thing for you and I believe He has done so tonight, if you don’t thank Him you will need Him again.

In Judges chapter 15 verse 14 to 19,

Haa, thank You Father

Amen and amen

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said from now on My glory will overshadow you.

Judges 15 from verse 14 to 19, the Bible tells us what happened when they brought Samson bound – they brought him bound to the enemies;

The Spirit of God came mightily upon him, set him free, he grabbed the jaw bone of an ass and with it he killed a thousand men.

And then he threw the jaw bone away and began to boost: great Samson! With the jaw bone of an ass I have slain a thousand men!

Great victory!

And all of a sudden he became thirsty  

Haa

oh God, thirst is about to kill, what do I do?

God say the jaw bone you throw away pick it up – that thing which you think you do not need anymore; pick it up

He picked it up and God brought water out of the Jaw bone of an ass.

He drank and was refresh.

Never forget to give glory to God.

The major problem with us Christians is when the heat is on we turn on the fan; as soon as we are cool, we switch off the fan.

God is not a fan

That song writer said, I need You every hour.

So, I am going to give you some minutes just to praise God

So will you please stand and begin to praise the Almighty God; begin to magnify His holy name tonight.

                            MARCH SPECIAL HOLY GHOST SERVICE

(Hallelujah)

Thank You Father

Oh, thank You Father.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you, no more fruitless efforts.

Daddy asks me to tell someone, as hopeless as the situation may be now, before the sun rises tomorrow you will sing a new song.

Thank You Lord.

The Lord asks me to tell someone, the enemy thought there is no way you can escape; Daddy asked me to tell you, I will surprise the enemies.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, your hunger is for the power of God; Daddy asked me to tell you, even by next Sunday you will see evidence.

And so my Father and my God I just want to thank You, glory be to Your holy name. Thank You for saving my soul. Thank You for calling me into the ministry; thank You for the Holy Ghost service; thank You for all You have done in the past; thank You for all You are doing now; thank You for what You will do in the Future; thank You for January, thank You for February, thank You for March, accept our worship in Jesus’ name.

Father, in the life of all Your children: those who are here, those who are watching by television, those who are watching on the internet, those who are listening by radio, all over the world, in all our lives today do something special; make this day unforgettable. Thank You my Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Shake hand with one or two people and say God will bless you tonight.

And then you may please be seated.

I told those of you who were here last month about speaking to your mountain that you will tell the mountain: there are two of us and one must move out of the two of us and I am not the one who will move.

And then I told you a story; it is for the benefit of those of who were not here and did not watch.

I said, when I was in the Primary school, there was bully in my class.

I was very tiny and he was big.

And every day he will just come and slap me on the head.

He knew I cannot retaliate because he is too big for me.

After sometime I made up my mind that I will take this no more.

So I decided I will fight him

He will surely kill me and then the Government will kill him.

So, we have a draw.

One day, he came and slapped me.

And I told him, you have slapped me for the last time.

He said, you! You spoke!

So he hit me another time and we started fighting.

He kept on knocking me down and I kept on bouncing back.

After awhile he came to his sense that this boy wants to die.

So he started running and I chased him.

I want you to stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, in the mighty name of Jesus, every mountain blocking my way to joy must move tonight.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Every mountain, no matter how huge they may be, they must move tonight; they must move tonight. In the mighty name of Jesus, every mountain blocking my way to joy must move tonight; every one of them, no matter how huge, you must move tonight; every one, every one of them must move tonight. Every mountain blocking my joy must move tonight; must move tonight. I am not tolerating any mountain blocking my joy, they must move tonight; must move tonight; they must move tonight. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

I want to appeal to you tonight that to treat this service as a destiny changing service.

Every word that comes to you tonight please don’t handle carelessly.

The Lord spoke to us from this altar on the 31st of December at the cross over service:

One of the words of prophesies that came that this year the cold will get colder and the hot will get hotter.

I had news that the whole nation of Ireland had been shut down because of snow – Colder than it has ever been.

I had news that a city called Denver in Colorado dropped in temperature thirty degrees in one night.

Please, we are not here to joke tonight.

When God speaks to you tonight, grab it.

You will testify.

Joshua chapter 14, reading from verse (because of time let just read from verse 12):

12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the Lord spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the Lord will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the Lord said.

13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance.

Caleb did not ask for soft landing; he did not ask for mountain that has no giants; Give me this mountain and leave me and God alone and let see what will happen.

Tonight, I want you to join you faith with mine and tell the Almighty God to give us a sea to cross; because in Exodus 14 verse 21 to 28, a sea blocked the way of the children of Israel to their promise land.

But then something happened that I believe it is going to happen here tonight: the wind blew

If God would give us a sea tonight, the problem as big as a sea, the wind of the Holy Spirit will blow.

And when the wind blows suddenly there will be a way where there was no way before.

Because I have a feeling deep within me that before somebody gets back home, where there was no way before, there will be a way.

The one they say can never have a child will come back here next year with a three month old baby.

That the one they say they are going to sack will be promoted.

For someone tonight when the wind blows, there will be a way where there was no way before.

When the wind blows according to Acts chapter 2 verse 1 to 4, power came because Jesus had told His disciples: you will receive power when the Holy Ghost is come upon you.

And no power came until the wind blew.

When power came, an ordinary fisherman spoke and things began to happen.

He touched a cripple and the cripple began to walk (Acts chapter 3 verse 1 to 8)

I am grateful to God that even before I started preaching, He had already seen somebody who is hungry for the power of God and He decided to satisfy such a fellow.

Who is that fellow here anyway?

I want to assure you, from now on you will lay hand on the sick and they will recover.

In Acts chapter 5 verse 1 to 11, because the wind blew, power came, an ordinary fisherman issued a decree and became established.

Some people where trying to bring confusion into the church of Peter;

He spoke and they were uprooted.

In the Name of the One who called me, from this moment onward, whenever you say that every plant that my Father has not planted shall be uprooted, it shall happen immediately.

In Acts chapter 5:14 to 16, because the wind blew and power came, the shadow of an ordinary fisherman began to heal the sick.

This year, you are not just going to blessed; you are going to become a blessing.

In the name that is above every other name, from now on even your handkerchiefs will be raising the dead.

So, I want you to pray; every prayer you pray tonight, please pray as if your life depends on it.

Lift your voice to the Almighty God and cry to Him: Father, give me sea to cross and let your wind blow.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Let Your wind blow Daddy. Let Your wind blow on my behalf tonight. Let Your wind blow; let it blow on my behalf. Let Your wind blow so power can descend. Let Your wind blow so that my touch will begin to heal the sick; my handkerchiefs will begin to cast out demons. Thank You Father. Let Your wind blow. Thank You Father. Let Your wind blow for me. Give me sea to cross and let Your wind blow; let there be a way where there were no before Lord, let Your wind blow for me; tonight, let Your wind blow for me. I don’t want to be an ordinary Christian, I want to be Christian in power and might and in Holy Spirit; let Your wind blow for me; let power come down. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Give me this mountain could also mean ‘give me a wall to pull down’.

The children of Israel were on their way to the promise land; directly on their path was Jericho.

Unless the wall comes down there is no moving forward.

Are you at a standstill now?

That is going to change before the sun rises.

Have you been stagnant all this years, working for years no promotion, those who met you there have already gone ahead of you, because someone has become a wall, that wall will fall tonight.

Because in Joshua chapter 6 verse 20, the children of Israel shouted and the wall of Jericho came down

Thank you.

Why will I ask God to give me a wall to pull down?

So that I can have divine visitation:

No challenges, no miracles.

No obstacles, no testimonies.

In Joshua chapter 5 verse 13 to 15, when Joshua saw the wall blocking his way, he was surrounding/surveying the wall;

For the first time in his life, an angel visited him; give him instructions (Joshua 5:13 to 15)

I need a divine visitation and I know some of you need a divine visitation.

Because whenever there is a divine visitation, wombs that had been closed will open.

In Genesis chapter 18 verse 1 to 14, it was a divine visitation that put an end to the barrenness of Sarah.

In John chapter 5 verse 2 to 9, there was a man who has been sick for thirty-eight years, going around the circle for thirty-eight year; he had a divine visitation and his fruitless effort ended.

I need a divine visitation because in Mark chapter 10 verse 46 to 52, it was when Bartimaeus had divine visitation that he could say bye-bye to darkness; bye-bye to poverty; bye-bye to reproach.

In Mark chapter 5 verse 35 to 43…

Thank You Father.

Somebody here tonight according to Daddy, what you need is a brand new lung and He said you have already got it now.

Daddy says right now He is distributing spare parts.

It would be a great idea if you can claim one for yourself: A new brain, new eyes, new heart, new womb, new liver, new legs, new hands, whatever you need.

When Bartimaeus had a divine visitation, darkness lost its grip on him; he never had to beg again, he never had to wear the garment of shame again.

I have told you before, a time I visited a young man in his house and he saw the way I was looking at the house.

I have travelled the world, I have seen houses, I have visited president, I have seen their houses but this young man house was different.

He looked at me and smile.

He said, Daddy, I was once as poor as a church rat, and then I had a special encounter with God.

 Just one miracle, and the house you see, the only thing that is not imported in this house is sand, every other thing here was imported; because he had divine visitation.

I have good news for somebody here today your testimony will be bigger than that.

Stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God: if You are visiting two people here tonight, let me be one of them; please Lord, let me have a divine visitation tonight.

Let me have a divine visitation tonight; give me a wall to pull down and then give me a divine visitation; give me a divine visitation so that wombs that have closed will open, so that my fruitless effort can come to an end, so that an end can come to my shame, my reproach, my poverty; give me a divine visitation tonight. Give me a wall to pull down and then give me a divine visitation; give me a divine visitation Lord so that an end can come to all my fruitless efforts, my poverty, my reproach, my shame. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Give me this mountain can mean ‘give me a lion to fight’ – give me a lion so that I can tear it into two.

In King Judges 14 verse 5 to 6, Samson was minding his own business…

Thank You Father.

God asks me to tell someone here, those who are saying to you now: where is your God?, will soon be saying, are you the only one serving God?

So Samson was minding his own business when a lion chose to attack him.

Then, the Spirit of God came on him and tore the lion into two.

Give me a lion so that Your Spirit can come heavily on me; so that every yoke in my life can be burnt off; so that everything I touch will begin to prosper.

Because in Judges 15 verse 14 to 15, when they brought Samson bound to the enemy and the Spirit of God came mightily upon him, all the ropes binding him were burnt as if they touch fire;

And he saw the jaw bone of an Ass but because the power of God had come upon him, even the jaw bone became a weapon of mass destruction.

There are some of us today we are bound one way or the other: bound by generational curses, bound by evil covenants, bound by some witches or wizard;

What everybody his doing and they are succeeding, the moment you touch it, it will fail

But when the fire comes down, yokes will be destroyed; whatever you touch you are going to prosper.

And when that fire comes, it has a way of driving away the spirit of fear because one of the greatest binding forces on earth is fear.

Some of us are afraid to take a step that will lead us to success.

Because fear is a spirit according to 2Timothy chapter 1 verse 7.

What happens if I fear?

Even some now are afraid of success.

When the Holy Spirit comes upon you mightily, He drives away your fear, destroy yokes and empower you to defeat your enemy.

Several years ago when I was very little, I had an encounter with a snake.

From that time onward, I had a great fear of snakes.

But then one day, years ago when the camp was still mainly jungle, I was going for my prayer walk in the middle of the night, I had my walking stick with me;

Some of you know what it looks like; it is just a piece of aluminum that I hold when I go about.

I was walking through a bush part that I normally walk any night.

Suddenly I saw a long wood crossing the road and I stopped.

Who will put firewood across a road?

So I switched on my touch light and lo and behold it was a python – big fellow.

So I froze; thinking maybe if I stand still it will just continue on his journey;

And suddenly he raise his head, open his wide mouth, about to attack.

Suddenly, the power of God came down on me, my fear disappeared, the two of us had a little fight; by the time the fight was over, the python was dead, his head was battered.

I went to the nearest house and I borrowed a cutlass;

Because like I thought you last month, don’t leave goliath without cutting of his head.

I went back to the python, cut of his head.

To carry that thing from the bush to my house, we needed a car – a big car, and the thing filled the boot of the car.

From that day onward I have never been afraid again.

I want you to stand on your feet, lift your voice to the Almighty God: today, every spirit of fear drive them out of me; let Your Spirit come down mightily mightily mightily; drive out every spirit of fear; give me a lion I will tear into pieces.

Give me a lion I will tear into two, just let Your Holy Spirit come down mightily on me Lord and drive out every spirit of fear out of me Lord. Let Your Sprit come down mightily on me now to destroy every yoke in me so that everything I touch will become successful; don’t let me know fear again; I don’t want to be torment by fear anymore, let Your Holy Spirit come down mightily on me; drive every spirit of fear out of my life. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Give me a mountain can mean ‘give me a goliath and I will kill him’.

Oh, thank You Daddy.

The Lord says there is someone here today, among your classmates you are the least; Daddy asked me to tell you that very soon you will be the greatest.

May be I should say amen to this one before I tell you.

My Daddy is saying to someone let the enemy try, they will never discover the secret of your success.

Thank You Father.

I think I have heard this one before but the Lord is saying to someone before the end of this month the sound of music will return to your home.

Well, in 1Samuel 17 from verse 42 to 51 (1Samuel 17:42 to 51), you know the story: David versus Goliath.

David said to Goliath I come against you in the Name of the Lord.

Why do I want You to give Goliath Lord?

That the world may know the power in Your name.

Philippians chapter 2 verse 9 to 11, God has given Him a name that is above every other name that at the mention of the name of Jesus all knees must bow.

The world needs to know through you and through me that there is a name that can uproot any mountain.

Because Psalm 90 verse 1 to 2 tells us that before the mountain were brought forth He is God, He knows the foundation of the mountain and He can uproot.

And this Name works at anytime.

According to Psalm 46 verse 1, the Bible says the Ever present help in the time of trouble.

One of my sons gave a testimony just now; some of you seem not to appreciate that testimony.

To be kidnap by ritual killer that is another way of saying bye-bye.

But there is a Name that is above every other name.

Let me here you shout that name.

You don’t know the power in the name until you come face to face with a goliath.

Suddenly you call the Name and expect the unexpected happens.

I have told you before; I have given you examples.

I have told you of a young man who got converted to Christianity in Ilorin.

He started preaching the gospel and his father is from another faith – high up in the faith – and he became very embarrassed.

So he calls in meeting of his heirs: look what my son is doing; I cannot kill him, please help me kill him.

And they say killing him now won’t work, he has already spoilt your name; let us do something that will turn him mad that when people see him so they will say oh it was madness.

The father has a house in Shagamu here.

So they made a charm for the father that sent for your boy and as soon as he comes into the house chant the following incantations and tell call his name.

If he answers you on that name he won’t remember anything again he would be mad.

So the father came; send for the boy, as the boy was entering the house Papa had already carried the charm, chanting his incantation, then he called the name of the boy.

And when your father calls you, what do you do?

You will answer.

So the boy answered and looked up to his father to see and instead of seeing his father he saw a huge mountain descending on him

There was no time to pray but there was enough time to shout one name and the mountain went back.

Today the young man is still preaching the gospel.

I want you to stand on your feet and lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: From now Lord, manifest the power of Your name in my life.

From now on manifest the power of Your name in my life. Father, please I am Your child from now on manifest the power of Your name in my life; manifest the power of Your name in my life. Thank You Jesus. Next time I call Your name let miracles happen. Oh, thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Now, please listen very carefully, Daddy wants me to pray prayer of deliverance for some people.

Please listen carefully.

I am not going to ask you to come forward but you are going to stand.

If you miss this opportunity it may never come again.

When I mention these things please don’t think I am dreaming.

So wait till I have mentioned all the cases so you will stand together so nobody will know which one is your own.

The Lord says there are some people here, at the beginning of the new moon you suddenly feel like barking like a dog, strong urge to bark like a dog; and in another occasion you have drive out to a lonely place and you have done some barking.

The Lord wants to put an end to that tonight.

The Lord says there is someone here that you have to eat human flesh during a particular initiation and you are beginning to feel trouble inside your system.

Daddy wants to uproot that which was planted in you that day.

Case number three: the Lord says there is someone here, you plotted the remover of your boss so you could seat on his sit; and you are beginning to feel pain in your anus.

Daddy says cancer of the anus is on the way but tonight is a night of special deliverance God wants to deal with that.

The Lord said there is someone here, before you gave your life to Jesus you used to fly to meetings at night but you are still flying and you don’t want to go anymore

God wants to deal with that tonight too.

Finally, at least for now, He says there someone here too, it does not matter how much food you eat, you are always hungry because there are demons in you waiting for the food to come down

He wants to deal with that also.

I don’t have time; I am only breaking because Daddy says I should do that.

So, if you belong to any of these categories you have to stand before I count four.

The rest of us shall we please bow our heads; I don’t want to embarrass anyone.

But if you belong to any of the categories, stand very quickly.

I can see many of you already standing but I will still count:

One, two, three,

I am sure you know this is a secret between you and God;

If He is telling me, it is because He loves you so that He can set you free.

Four

 

So my Father and my God, thank You for Your mercy, thank You for Your compassion, because these Your children have decided to obey You by standing, set them free; Father, set them free now. By the time they sleep and wake up, let them know that they are free.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

You may please be seated.

Oh thank You Father.

I think we should give God a big round over applause.

Give me mountain where there are giants could mean ‘gather all my enemies together in one place so that I can get rid of all of them once and for all’.

Daniel chapter 6 from verse 1 to 15 – you know the story:

Daniel was making progress and some people ganged up against him; they got him thrown into the den of lion and God intervene.

Daniel was pulled out and all those who ganged up against him were finished in one day.

You may not know it but you have enemies.

It might be from your father side or your mother side or in the place of work; it might even be in the house of God.

I want God to gather together all my enemies tonight so that He can deal with all of them once and for all so that nobody will ever bother me again.

Is there anybody else who will want something like that?

After all it is written in Proverbs chapter 16 verse 7, when a man’s ways please God, He will cause even his enemies to be at peace with him.

I want peace on a permanent basis.

And there are some enemies that just have to go.

There are not going to change; you cannot beg them, you cannot bribe them; they are not just going to change.

And they need to go, all of them once and for all.

That is why tonight is so crucial

So that for the rest of your life your progress will not be hinder, your joy will not be contaminated; you will sleep in peace and wake up in peace.

You see, because if you allow a single enemy to remain that one will grow, produce children and begin to multiply again.

The old ones among us will remember the story.

We held our first convention on this camp in 1983.

We were all excited we are coming to our own camp ground.

And the witches heard that we were coming and they sent a team of four to go and take over the camp before we arrive.

They came and the Holy Spirit of heaven arrested them.

First one ran mad before she died.

The second one developed a hunch back before she died.

I cannot remember how the third one died.

But when the forth one was about to die because she happen to be the wife of a Pastor, they brought her here for prayer.

As I was about to pray for her she told me the story: we came to take over and God took over.

I want a situation in your life that from now on all enemies known and unknown, particularly those who are pretending to be your friend will be dealt with tonight.

So I want you to stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God: Father, I am Your son, You are the Lord of host, tonight, gather all my enemies together and finish them off.

You better pray.

Particularly those who are pretending to be my friend gather all of them together and finish them off; finish them off. Gather them together Lord that is why I am asking You to give me this mountain, gather all my enemies together and finish them all. All those who will never repent, all who will never change, gather them together Lord and finish them all. Thank You Father. You are the Lord of host, gather them together: enemies from my father side, enemies from my mother, enemies from my in-laws side , enemies from my place of work, enemies in the church of God, including those pretending to be my friends, gather them together O Lord and finish them off tonight. Thank You Father. Every enemy of my joy, Father, gather them together, finish them all.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

We are almost there.

And then Joshua made a statement, he said I have waited for forty-five years, I cannot wait any longer.

For someone here tonight, as the Lord lives, no more waiting.

In Psalm 102 verse 13, it says, thou will arise and have mercy on Zion because the time to favour her, yea the set time, (is when?)

Thank You Father.

The Lord asks me to tell someone, one day not too long from now, you will tell your friends: I don’t even know the meaning of failure anymore.

This one is big.

The Lord asks me to tell someone, He said you are contemplating doing something big for God through His son and He asked me to tell you, go ahead and I will see to it that until there is no more water that is when your blessings will end.

Thank You Father.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said the greatest financial experience you will ever experience is coming soon. He said when it comes, you yourself will know that I don’t deserve it. And so, He said I should tell you, you will return fifty percent of it to Him.

Now, there are some miracles that can wait.

Some can wait till next year.

Some can wait till next month.

Some can wait till next week.

Some can wait till tomorrow.

But when do you want your own?

In the Name that is above every other name, because this is a very special day, the Holy Ghost service started because the Lord asked me to ask for a miracle for my birthday;

And I said I want every member of my congregation to receive a miracle – thirty-two years ago.

Today is the first time that the Holy Ghost service has fallen on exactly my birthday.

I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God; a day like this may never come again: Father, I want my breakthrough now.

Now, now, now, not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, not next year, I want my breakthrough now. I want my breakthrough today; even right now, right now, right now, right now. Thank You Father. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

I am concluding

Caleb said, Give me this mountain if God just be with me, I will turn this obstacle to a miracle.

All the giants, I will finish them once and for all.

How can you take up mountains?

It is question of connection.

If God be for me, who can be against me?

I have faced lion.

I don’t want to begin to tell you stories of many times.

But I have found myself in the den of lions and I came out alive.

I cannot begin to tell you details because some people had had to be feed to lions as a matter of connection.

Those who say you won’t reach your goal; long after they have gone you will still be flying high.

Everyone who conquered death in the Bible was those who had connections.

 

The widow of Zarephath, when her son died she cried to Elijah.

The Shunammite woman, when her son died she cried to Elisha.

When Lazarus died, they sent for Jesus – the one whom thou loveth is sick.

Connection!

A friend of mine heard with his own hears: put your house in order because you are going to die.

He came to me and said this is what I had; I just want you to get ready for my burial.

I laughed.

I have been praying to God that He will send me those who will lift up my hands and then He provided you and now death says he is coming.

Which death is that?

I say if my God is still alive, my God is still on His throne, you will live and you will not die.

That was twenty-three years ago; he is still alive; he is still lifting my hand.

Connection!

An American was coming to Nigeria for our convention, he decided to go to Kenya first and he did not get his visa before he left America for Nigeria because they told him you can get it in Kenya.

He got to the Nigeria Embassy in Kenya and they just kept him waiting for ours.

At a stage somebody came to him;

Where exactly do you say you are going in Nigeria?

He said Redemption camp.

Which one?

Haha, that of Pastor Adeboye!

You know him?

He is my friend.

It is convention I am going too.

Why did you not say so?

Seat down.

That fellow went

Brought him tea

Brought him sandwiches

By the time he was finishing his tea, his visa was ready.

Connection!

I want you to pray one more prayer; you are going to cry to the Almighty God: Father, don’t let me be dissociated from You.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Don’t let me be dissociated from You. Don’t let me be dissociated from You. I am already connected to You Lord, let me remain connected; let me remain connected to You; let me remain connected to You forever till I see you in glory; because if I am connected to You, You can give me any mountain and I will take it over; give me any sea, I will cross it. If I am connected to You every wall will come down before me; any lion who comes I will tear the lion into two; any goliath shows up I will crush and cut off his head; please Daddy, do not let me be dissociated from You. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

I know that the great man of God who spoke before me had already done an excellent job talking to you about salvation.

But I know many of you came in after he made the altar call.

If you are not yet associated with Jesus Christ, you are not yet born again, if His blood is yet to wash away your sins;

 I am to give you just two minutes to come and be associated with Him.

It is after He has saved your soul that you become member of His family and then you can say let the lions come;

It is only then you can say let goliath come.

Then you can ask any wall to fall.

So, if you want to surrender your life to Jesus, you have not done so up till now, I am going to count from one to ten.

Please hurry up and surrender your life to Him.

Or if you have surrendered before and you are now backsliding, you can come back to Him now; He will restore.

I am counting now.

One, two,

There may be only one or two of you because several others have done so earlier in the day but this is your own opportunity.

Three, four,

And those of you in the old arena, just go towards the altar there, there are men of God waiting to attend to you.

Those of you in the viewing centres all over the world, just go towards the front of the auditorium you are, there are men of God there waiting to attend to you.

Four, five, six, seven, eight, nine,

Now, those of you who are already in front and those of you on the way, cry unto the Lord and ask Him to be merciful unto you; ask Him to save your soul and receive you to the family of God. Tell Him you want to be connected to Him; ask Him for the salvation of your soul. And the rest of us can we please stretch our hands to these people and intercede for them for just two minutes that the one who saved us will save their own souls also. Pray for them. Those of you on the way hurry up because we want to pray for salvation now. Thank You Jesus. If you are on the way, just make sure you get here before I finish praying – just keep coming.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Saviour we just want to say thank You; thank You for Your word; thank You for these people who have come to surrender their lives to You, please receive them, save their souls, wash them clean in Your blood, write their names in the Book of Life, accept them into the family of God; from now on any time they call on You, please answer them by fire.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Those of you in front let me here you shout hallelujah.

I rejoice with you because from now on I will be praying for you.

So, some Counselors will come near you and will give you cards we want you to fill very quickly.

As soon as you finish, you give it back to them and go back to your seat.

And I promise you will be praying for you.

Congratulations.

Congratulations.

Now, the rest of us why we wait for these people to fill their form let us thank God for what He had already done tonight particularly the word He as sent directly to you.

Just for two/three minutes why we wait for them, let us thank the Almighty God, then we will continue from there.

In Jesus name we have prayed.

Because tonight is so crucial, I want you to give you some minutes to pray on the following points:

Number One: we just want to praise God that you are able to make it.

Praise Him for life that you could have access to a meeting like this.

Number Two: You will say, Father, let every sea part before me tonight.

Number Three: Father, let every hindering wall fall.

Number Four: Father, subdue every lion under my feet.

Number Five: Father, let every goliath in my family die and never rise again.

Number Six: Father, from now on let me reign with You in perfect peace.

Number Seven: Father, let my connection to You be establish.

And then add your own personal prayer request.

You have about ten minutes.

If you chose to come to the altar, you are welcome.

Let us go ahead and talk to the Lord.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

In the Name that is above every other name, from right now every sea before you will part; every wall will fall; every lion attacking you will be subdued; every goliath will die and never rise again. From now on you will enjoy peace; peace in your body, peace in your soul, peace in your spirit, peace in your home, peace in your place of work. Your link to the Almighty God will be established forever. And whatever may be your personal request will become a testimony now. So shall it be.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Let somebody shout hallelujah

                                     APRIL HOLY GHOST SERVICE

THEME: STRONGER THAN YOUR ENEMIES PART 4: Children of Conquerors

                                                 APRIL 6, 2018.

                                       BY: PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE

Thank You Father.

Hallelujah.

(Tonight, before you begin to praise Him, there is a great danger in getting too familiar with God. Because we are so used to miracles, signs and wonders; we are beginning to take them for granted and these things don’t happen everywhere.

If you are the man who woke up in the morning, thinking that your wife is asleep and suddenly you discover she is not asleep, she is dead and then you remember that the servant of God said last month that the dress you wore (because some of you did not take that word seriously) that the dress you wore that night has been specially anointed.

And you got that dress and somehow rap it round her because by now she is stiff and you are on your way to the hospital and on your way to the hospital your wife came back to life.

I thought, I thought that at that stage if that is the only testimony we heard, at that stage when sudden on the way to the hospital he said my wife came back to life, I thought we will all stand; I thought we will all begin to praise God, I thought we will be begin to glorify Him.)

Why don’t you praise Him?

What He is doing in our midst is not done everywhere else in the world.

Why don’t you praise?

Why don’t you give Him glory?

Why don’t you give Him adoration?

Why don’t you bless His holy name?

Why don’t you bless His holy name?

Give Him glory

Let Him hear your voice;

Let Him hear you praise Him.

Magnify His holy name

If you have ever since anybody involved in a fire accident, you know that even with all manners of surgeries, everything won’t become the same again;

But this same God, this God, this God, this Almighty that we serve; the One who gave Naman brand new skin proves Himself again, defeated fire.

This same God praise Him.

Give Him glory, give Him honour, give Him adoration.

He is worthy, He is worthy, He is worthy to be praised, He is worthy to be adored, He is worthy to be magnified.

Praise Him

Praise Him

Praise Him for all the mighty testimonies we heard tonight.

People who had been barren for seventeen years; waiting on the Lord for seventeen years and suddenly the answer came.

O think about the woman who thought I was pregnant and now it does not seem as if I am pregnant and then one problem after the other but the Almighty came through

Praise Him

Glorify His holy name.

He can do all things.

Let Him hear your praise.

Let Him hear you glorify His holy name.

Let Him hear you glorify His holy name.

Thank You Father.

Thank You Lord.

In Jesus mighty name we have worshipped.

Brethren I want us to thank God for all the girls that have been released; all those girls that these criminals took; It takes the power of God to get girls out of the jaws of lion.

Why don’t we lift our voices to Him and say: thank You, thank You Father; thank You.

If you are a father, you know what it means if your daughter have been kidnapped, taking hostage by book haram, you know what that means that the Almighty God brought these girls back; Let us bless the name of the Lord. Let us give Him glory, let us give Him honour, let us give Him adoration. Thank You Lord. Thank You for bringing these girls back. We praise You, we adore You; we magnify Your holy name. Blessed be Your holy name Daddy. Thank You for answered prayers. Thank You for answered prayers. Thank You for answered prayers Lord. Blessed be Your holy name.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And now, let us lift our voices to Him and say: Father, every one of the girls still in captivity, please, bring them home soon.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

He knows where they are, He has the ability to bring them back, He can do what nobody else can do; call on the Almighty God and say please help us. Bring every one of them back, every one, everyone in captivity, bring them back O Lord; bring all of them back, bring all of them back. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

I am going to read to you Isaiah chapter 54, I am reading from verse 13 to 15 but I will read verse 13 first and then you will pray.

It says:  And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

Please, lift your voices to the Almighty God and say: Father, let the peace of my children be great.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Please Lord, I commit all my children into Your hands; my biological children, my spiritual children, my children in the ministry, please Lord, let my children enjoy great peace; let the peace of my children be great. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And in verse 14, it says: In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and you shall be far from terror; for it shall not come near thee.

Lift your voice to the Almighty and say: Father, as for me and my children, keep terror far away from us.

Please, open your mouth and pray; open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Keep terror far away from me and my children, don’t let terror come near me, don’t terror come near my children; don’t let fear come near me, don’t let fear come near my children; please Lord, don’t let my children be kidnap; don’t let there be any evil coming near me or my children, please Lord, fulfill Your promise. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And then verse 15 says: Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.

Lift voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, anyone who gathered together against me and my children, let them fall.

Go ahead, open your mouth.

It is God who promised, it is God who promised; all those who will we gather against me, who will gather against my children, who we will gather against the children of God, let them fall Daddy, let them fall for my sake, let them fall, let them fall, let them fall, let them fall; let them fall, all those who are gathering together or on a plan to gather together against me, against my family, against Your church, against Nigeria, let them fall, Almighty God let them fall; let them fall for my sake; let them fall because You are my God, let them fall; Father don’t let them stand. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

I want you to pray for all those who are barren because you heard the testimony of a lady who said when will I come when they are having children meeting like this?

And now she is here.

Cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, everyone who may be here tonight or listening to us anywhere, who may be consider barren, by this time next year, let them come with their children, let them come with their children.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

They may be your relatives, they may be your friends, they may be people you don’t even know; all those who are considered barren Lord God Almighty, please Daddy, by this time next year, let them come with their children; let them come here too with their children; please Daddy, open their wombs and glorify Your holy name.. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Now I want you to pray this prayer if you want to; this one is not compulsory.

I want somebody to lift his or her voice and say: Father, from tonight, let my days of glory begin.

Go ahead, if you want to pray, pray the prayer.

From tonight Lord, let my days of glory begin, let my days of glory begin, let my days of glory begin from tonight. Almighty God, let my days of glory begin; Ancient of days, let my days of glory begin; let my days of shame come to an end and let my days of glory begin from tonight. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

I know my Redeemer liveth

I know my Redeemer liveth

I know my Redeemer liveth

He liveth forever more.

(I know)

 

I know my Redeemer liveth

I know my Redeemer liveth

I know my Redeemer liveth

He liveth forever more.

(I know)

 

I know my Redeemer liveth

I know my Redeemer liveth

I know my Redeemer liveth

He liveth forevermore.

(I know)

King of kings and Lord of lords, the One who lives forever, the Father of the fatherless, the original Father, we worship You; the One who is alive forevermore we bow before You, accept our worship in Jesus’ name. Thank You for mighty things in our times, thank You for mighty testimonies; thank You for raising the dead, thank You for defeating fire, thank You for opening wombs, thank You Lord God Almighty for saving souls, Lord accept our worship in Jesus’ name. Thank You for January, thank You for February, thank You for what You did last month, thank You now for April, please our worship in Jesus’ name. Thank You for all the girls that were released, thank You because the others will also be release, please accept our worship in Jesus’ name. Father we are all Your children, we parent as well as our children, we are children in Your hands, You have been before the mountains, we are all very little children in Your hands, tonight Father, let our peace be great; keep terror far away from us and all those who may gather against our family, scatter them all. From this moment onward my Father and my God, every reproach, every shame, in our lives, in our families, bring to an end; let our glories begin. Thank You my Father and my God. Tonight, do marvelous things, save souls, heal the sick, set the captives free; let there be mighty testimonies.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Shake hands with one or two people and say God is going to bless you and bless your family.

And then you may please be seated.

I want to spend few minutes talking to those who are yet to surrender their lives to Jesus, so they can do so; so they don’t miss the blessings of tonight.

Ezekiel chapter 16 verse 44:

“Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter.”

That is another way of saying like father like son.

Or, like mother like daughter.

In fact the elders have a saying, they said, instead of things getting better for woman who happens to be a witch, all her children are girls, they said, witch craft is being multiplied.

In other words, they say that if the mother is a witch and she has a daughter, if you are a sensible boy, don’t marry that daughter.

Because if we are to believe the elders, when mama is about to go, she will pass the thing unto her daughter.

Like mother like daughter; like father like son

Jesus put it in another way in John chapter 8 verse 44 and He was talking to the Pharisees:

He said, you are of your father the devil and the will of your father you will do.

So, if the children are going to be blessed, we need to do something about the parents.

James chapter 1 verse 17 says: God is the Father of lights; It says, every good and perfect gift come from above; come down from the Father of lights.

And Matthew 5 verse 14: Jesus say we are the lights of the world.

That means, if the father is light, he gives back light.

The implication of that is that if the father is darkness, he is likely to give birth to darkness.

If the father is blessed, like I told those who came to divine encounter on Monday, because blessing flow like a river downstream;

If the father is blessed, the children automatically are going to be blessed.

Genesis chapter 28, if you read from verse 10 to 16 (Genesis 28:10 to 16): God said to Jacob, I AM the God of your father Abraham that is why I am going to bless you Jacob.

If the father is blessed, the son will be blessed.

If the father is cursed, God have mercy on the children, because curse also flows down like a river.

For example, 2Kings chapter 5 verse 20 to 27, Elisha said to Gehazi, the leprosy of Naaman will cleave unto you and unto thy seed forever.

Science is beginning to discover that if there is any particular sickness or disease in a father, sooner or later is going to show, either among the children or the grandchildren.

It will interest to know that African elders knew this long ago.

You go to a family, you say you want to marry their daughter, they will say go, we have heard.

Go, come back for an answer.

Why do they ask you to go?

So that they can go and verify your family;

They want to find out, had there been a leper before in the family, has there been a madman before in the family.

Because they know sooner or later this thing will show up again.

Our parent did not go to the University but they are deep in knowledge.

That is why I tremble for this young generation who want to marry on facebook.

You marry on facebook, you never can tell what else would come with thing you are marrying.

If the father is cursed unless something is done about that curse, the children are in trouble.

If the parent is one of the people God calls wicked and that is a sinner – the one who is not born again – as far as God is concern, he is considered wicked.

Then according to Psalm 7 verse 11, the Bible says, God is angry with wicked every day.

If God is angry with parents every day, what do you think is going happen to the children?

But David said in Psalm 27 verse 25, he said, I was young, now I am old; I have not seen the righteous forsaken or is begging bread.

If the parents are of the Lord, one way or the other, God will always supply their needs.

If the parents belong to the Lord, there is no way the children will end up begging for bread (that is the word of God and it is forever settled.)

Of course, the parents could be blessed and the son or daughter could decide I don’t want to go the way of my parents;

I don’t want their God to be my God;

I don’t want to serve their Jesus;

I want to do things in my own way.

In that case, God will move that fellow away from the line of blessing.

If the family is cursed and somebody in the family decides to move to the side of the Lord, God will move him away from the line of curses and he will begin to enjoy the blessings of the children of God.

So, tonight, make a choice.

Will you want to be among those that God is angry with on a daily basis?

Or, you want to be one of those people who you are sure God will never forsake him and his children will never beg for bread?

The choice is yours.

What is involved in giving your life to Jesus Christ is so tremendous;

It makes a lot of different between life and death, curses and blessing and it makes a lot of difference concerning your children coming after you.

So, if you are here tonight and you have not yet surrendered you life to Jesus, I beg you in the name of Jesus Christ;

If not only for your sake but for the sake of your children, come and surrender your life to Jesus.

Because God is angry with the sinner every day

But He will never forsake the righteous and his children will never beg for bread.

If only for the sake of your children, come and surrender your life to Jesus Christ.

And as for you children, nobody is ever too young to decide for Jesus Christ.

If you give your life to Jesus even if there is curse in your family, that curse will miss you.

So, come and give your life to Jesus now.

I will count from one to ten.

Before I say ten, if you want to give your life to Jesus, you come and stand before me here.

And those of you in the old arena, you go and stand before the altar; there are men of God there waiting to attend to you.

Before I say ten; I am counting now.

One, two,

If only for the sake of your children, come and give your life to Jesus; let Him remove every curse on you and on your family.

And if you are a child, come and give your life to Jesus, so that in case there is a curse in your family, the curse will miss you.

Three, four, five,

When you give your life to Jesus, you have joined the family of God and the family of God is blessed.

Six, seven, eight, nine,

Now, those of you who have already come and those of you on the way, talk to the Lord now: ask Him to have mercy on you; ask Him to please save your soul. Tell Him you have come to surrender your to Him that He should please receive you and bring you into the family of God. Begin to pray even as you are coming, call on and say: Lord, have mercy on me; save my soul, I will be Yours forever, I will live the rest of my life for You. Talk to the Lord.

And the rest of us, please, let us stretch our hands to our new brothers and sisters to intercede for them that God who saved our souls will save their own souls also; pray that God will wash them clean with His powerful blood so that the anger of God will longer be on them. Pray for them brethren.

Those of you on the way just keep coming; make sure you get here before I finish praying. You have to be here within the next two minutes because I am about to pray. Let us intercede for them brethren. Pray for them that God will have mercy on them; will save the soul of the parents, save the soul of the children, save the soul of everyone who have come to Him today – whether they are here, in the old auditorium or anywhere else in the world – that God will receive them and have mercy on them and save their souls. Thank You Father.

Now, if you are still on the way you have to hurry up, just make sure you get here before I finish praying.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Saviour I just want to thank Your name; I want to give You all glory and honour for Your word and for these people who have come forward to surrender their live to You; please remember Your promise that whosoever would come unto You, You will in no wise cast out; they have come to You now Father, please receive them in Jesus’ name. Every sin they have ever committed my Father and my God, wipe it away with You blood; save their souls; write their names in the book of life; receive them into the family of God; and Father, from now on, anytime they call on You, please answer them by fire and cancel every curse on them in Jesus’ name; please Lord let them serve You till the end.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Now, those of you in front let me hear you shout hallelujah.

Good.

I am rejoicing with because from now on by God’s grace I will be praying for you.

The Counselors are around you, they will give you some pieces of paper to fill; I want your names, your address, your prayer request and I promise I will be praying for you.

I will wait for you to finish before we proceed further.

Congratulations.

Now, during the breaking time we are also expecting two minute clip just to show the little work by the grace of God that the Redeemed Christian Church of God is being doing in the country, at least here in Nigeria and we are doing the same all of over the world.

And to show you that the Almighty God is definitely on the move.

So, why they are filling their forms, maybe the television people will help us and put on the clip.

We will overcome the technical difficulties by the next time we meet.

Now, have we finished?

Once you have submitted your papers, please you can go back to your seat; we are running out of time.

We don’t want these children to fall asleep before we get to the anointing service specially.

God bless you and thank you Counselors.

If there is anyone in need of special assistance, please help them.

Let us open our Bible to Isaiah chapter 8 verse 18 (and I believe this passage is written for me):

“Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion”

I decree that concerning every one of you listening to me now, you and your children will be for signs and for wonders.

A child of conqueror should be a conqueror.

The day an elephant is born, a baby elephant, a day old, is already bigger than a goat.

A day born is very bigger than the biggest of goats.

I am decreeing in the Name that is above every other name, your children will be far stronger than all their enemies.

Because of time, I will very quickly go through my sermon; I won’t break in between to ask you to pray, you will pray at the end.

Because I want us to get to the anointing section very quick because there is quiet a crowd here and even almost a bigger crowd at the old arena.

I am going to talk about few children of conquerors and how they came out stronger even than their parents.

Because whether the devil likes it or not in the Name that is above every other name your children will be greater than you.

Let us start with Isaac:

His father rose from nothing to greatness.

Abraham was not anyone special until God called him in Genesis 12 verse 1 to 3.

All of a sudden he just came onto the scene and God said to Abraham, obey Me then I will bless you.

By the time we get to Genesis 24 verse 34 to35, the servant of Abraham said, I am  Abraham’s servant and the Lord has blessed my master greatly.

Every one of you who are already in the Lord, who are parents here today, the Lord will bless you greatly.

But his son Isaac was greater than him.

In Genesis 26 from verse 12 to 14, in spite of the economic situation in the land, Isaac became very great; he was greater than his father.

He conquered feminine; he conquered persistent failure and defeat

In Genesis 26 verse 19 to 22, as he was digging wells, as soon as he dug the well, enemies came and took the well away from him.

He will dig another one they will come again and take away the well from him.

They kept on attacking him but he overcame.

Every force attacking your children will be scatter from tonight.

He was child of joy; he conquered sorrow in him family – Genesis 21 from verse 1 to 6

He was child of laughter.

There was sorrow in the family before he came; when he came, it was laughter all the way.

Because of your children in the Name that is above every name, sorrow will become a stranger to your family too.

Isaac was a child of multiplied blessing – blessing in the family just kept on multiplying.

If God can do it for Isaac, He can do it for any child.

It is possible for your child to be far far greater than you: Physical child, spiritual child; it can happen.

Yes ago we normally, around July, we go to America to go Kenneth Hagin camp meeting.

I have told you the story before of how the first time I met him and I saw the beautiful things God was doing; I insisted that he must pray for me and he did.

By the time he died and they were doing his funeral, they announced that during his life time, more than six thousand students graduated from his Bible College and the people clapped.

I said, God thank You; thank You for a great father.

But in the Redeemed Christian Church of God, every year, more seven thousands students graduate from the Bible College every year.

I pray for everyone here today, your children will be greater than you.

Well, as one of my children will say, if your amen is louder than that of your neighbour then the prayer will be for you.

Let us consider Joshua:

His spiritual Dad was Moses and Moses was great, no doubt about that.

Moses delivered the whole nation out of captivity – Exodus 12 from verse 1 to 4.

Moses split a sea into two just by raising his hand – Exodus chapter 14 verse 1 to 28.

Moses turned bitter water to sweet – Exodus 15 verse 22 to 26.

When the children of Israel got to Marah and they could not drink the water because it was bitter

God showed Moses what to do, he did it and the water became sweet.

Moses produced something out of nothing: he brought water out of the rock – Exodus 17 verse 1 to 6.

Moses was great but Joshua was greater; he did much more than is father.

For example, he succeeded where his father failed.

In Joshua chapter 1 verse 1 to 8, he was the one that God said, okay, Moses did not get the people to the Promise Land but I will do it through you.

He was the one who was fighting in the valley when his father was on the mountain top praying – Exodus 17 verse 8 to 13.

He was the one who let the people to shout and the wall of Jericho came down in Joshua chapter 6 verse 1 to 20 – that was Joshua.

But as great as Moses was, there was something that Joshua did that Moses never did.

He stopped the sun – Joshua chapter 10 verse 12 to 14.

It was Joshua who said to the sun, sun stay where you are because I have a business I am still doing for God.

Moon, remain where you are;

And they obeyed him.

It was Joshua that God used to finally fulfill the destiny of Moses.

Because what God told Moses when He was sending him to Egypt was you will go and bring the people and they will come and serve Me on this mountain.

Moses could not get the people into the Promise Land but Joshua did.

There is a destiny for you parents that might not be hundred percent fulfilled while you are still in this world, but in the Name that is above every other name, because of your children, all your destiny shall be fulfilled.

I told you what happen the first time we went to America with my father-in-the-Lord.

A preacher came down from the pulpit and stood in from of him and said: what God promised you is about to be fulfilled.

And I asked papa later on because he could not understand English and he said what did the man say?

And I said, he said what God promised you is about to fulfill it.

What is it that God promised you?

And the old man began to cry.

When I started; when He called me to start this church, He told me the church will go around the whole world; now I am about to die and the church is still within Nigeria.

But God had already prepared a son who will take over from him

And today by God’s grace, that church is in more than one hundred and ninety nations of the world.

There is a promise God made concerning you and your family; even if there are not hundred percent fulfilled while you are here, they will be fulfilled through your children.

I am sure some of you will say, are there promises He had made to you sir that you are not even sure will fulfilled why you are here?

I am not so sure, I am trying my best, I am running as hard as I can;

But I know one of the visions of the Redeemed Christian Church of God if Jesus tarries that in every family of the world, every family of the world, there must of at least a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

I know that is going to come to pass.

And I believe He is going to use some of you to make it come to pass.

Let me take another example.

Take the example of Samuel:

Thank You Father.

The Lord says there is somebody here tonight, He says you will understand, He asked me to tell you, I have not finish with you, I AM just starting.

If you are the one let me hear your amen loud and clear.

Thank You Father.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, someone listening to me either here or you are hearing somehow, He said, the Doctors have told you your case is irreversible; Daddy asked me to tell you, I will prove them wrong.

Consider Samuel:

Samuel was the son of a prayer warrior:

Her mother could pray – 1Samuel chapter 1 verse 9 to 10.

Thank God for parents who can pray.

She prayed.

Her mother was a partner of a covenant keeping God;

Because in 1Samuel chapter 1 verse 11 to 20, she made a covenant with God: give me a son and I will give him back to You.

The mother was a warrior, a partner of a covenant keeping God and then, she produced Samuel.

Haa, the prayer warrior produced a king maker.

The first king in Israel was anointed by Samuel, the son of a prayer warrior – Samuel chapter 10 verse 1 to 9.

The second king in Israel was anointed by Samuel – 1Samuel chapter 16 verse from verse 1 to 13.

This same Samuel, just to show how powerful he was, was not just a king maker, he was a king remover – 1Samuel 15 verse 16 to 29.

When he said to a king, your kingdom is over, it is over.

A king tore his dress, he said, haa, you tore my dress, you kingdom is tore.

Powerful

He was a man of decrees, when he spoke, it happens – 1Samuel chapter 3 verse 19 – the Bible said, God did not allow the word of Samuel to fall to the ground.

He was a man of decrees – he will just decree and it will happen.

But then, there is something very very special about Samuel, he was a Prophet and I like that.

I mean, he was a Prophet – 1Samuel chapter 3 verse 19 to 21

He was not one of those people who will say: haa, thus saith the Lord, it is going to rain and they are prophesying in June in Nigeria; they know that it is the raining season.

He was not one of those prophets who would come to you and say: thus saith the Lord, you have two cars, you must give one of them to me.

He is not that kind of rubbish prophet; he was a prophet who call things not as it they were; who can prophesy and it will come to pass.

Because true prophesy when they come they sound impossible.

I give you an illustration very quickly what prophesy is like and to encourage somebody in particular tonight; because every impossibility in your life will become possible.

Years ago, there were three people contesting for the presidency of this nation: Aminu Kano, Abiola and Tofa.

And I was just minding my own business; just praising God, praying; when of a sudden God spoke to me

Now I am not claiming to be a prophet but I hear from Him once in a while

And God said son, in the coming election: the winner is the loser; the loser is the winner and the most fortunate of them all is Aminu Kano.

Haa! what is the meaning of this?

I knew what He told me and I knew His voice

And I have good news for you, He told me that those of you who are here tonight, it is going to be well with You.

I don’t say God said if He has not spoken

It does not make sense to say that the dress you were wearing last Holy Ghost service has become special but He said so; and if He said so, it is so.

I thank God we are hearing testimonies.

Before the election, Aminu Kano died.

So how do we join this to what God has said?

And then we had a meeting and at that time I was president of the PF (Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria)

And then all the PFN had a meeting at the Tafawa Square and the leaders came to me and said who are we going to vote for because we have: Abiola is a Muslim, Tofa is a Muslim.

We are Christian, who are we to vote for?

I said, well, you will go and vote according to your conscious but neither of them is going to reign.

Haa, they said come on now, when you toss a coin, it is either head or tail.

Two people are contesting, one has to be winner and the other will be a loser.

I said, Daddy said, the winner is the loser; the loser is the winner.

Well, you know the rest of the story.

Abiola won the election; did he ever reach the throne?

The one who lost end up laughing

This man who won ended up in prison.

Me they say I lost, at least I am in my house.

The winner is the loser, the loser is the winner; the most fortunate of them is the one who was not even around to see the mess.

I decree the Name that is above every other name, in the Name of the One who called me, from now on, no more shame for you.

Let us consider David:

Don’t worry I will soon round up.

His father…

Thank You Father.

Thank You Father.

The says there is a woman here (and every one of us listen carefully), the Lord says there is a woman, He said today you are childless, He said but one day you need more than one car to bring your children to this meeting.

Now, the reason I am asking you to listen is so that when she comes to testify, you will remember that God said so.

Now, David, his father was a conqueror.

How?

Because his father was chosen – 1Samuel 16 verse 1

God said to Samuel why are you mourning for Saul, I have rejected him; fill your cup with oil or your horn with oil and I will send you to the house of Jesse the Bethlehemite because in his house have provided me a king.

Of all the houses in Israel, God choose the house of Jesse.

I am going to be liberal; I am going to say if God chooses ten houses for special blessing in this nation, may your house be one of them.

Jesse was specially chosen by God and one of his children his David.

If we talk about David; if we talk about conqueror, you know he was a giant killer – 1Samuel 17:34 to 51 – He killed Goliath.

He destroyed the one who had been terrorizing a whole nation.

He was demon tamer, when David sang, demons go to sleep – 1Samuel 16 verse 15 to 23.

Not only was he a giant killer, demon tamer, he was even a producer of mighty men –

1Samuel 22 verse 1 to 2 – a lot of hopeless people gathered themselves to David and he became their captain.

Later on in 2Samuel 23, you can read from verse 8 to 39 (2Samuel 23 verse 8 to 39), David turn those vagabonds to mighty men.

And when the Bible says mighty, it means mighty.

And there are a lot of things I like about David, he was a poet – I love him a lot.

The Bible calls him the sweet psalmist of Israel – 2Samuel 23 verse 1

He was a composer; a song writer; a good singer.

Of course he was a king you know about that, when we call him, we call him King David – 2Samule chapter 5 verse 3.

But he was also a Prophet.

A poet, composer, king, prophet;

Because the three mightiest prophesies about the Lord Jesus Christ came through David:

Psalm 22 verse 1: my God, my God, why has thou forsaken me?

And he was not talking about himself; he was talking about the Lord Jesus Christ, what will happen when he hung on the cross.

Psalm 23: the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want…

He was talking about the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ today.

Thousands of years before Jesus was born.

Psalm 24 verse 7 to 10: lift up heads o ye gate, be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors that the King of Glory may come in…

He was talking about the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Three mighty prophesies.

Jesus in the first coming;

Jesus present ministry;

Jesus in the future

But not only that, David became the father of the King of kings himself – Mark chapter 10 verse 46 to 52 – Bartimaeus called him Jesus thou son of David.

He called the King of kings the son of David.

You might be small today, unknown, but through your children you can be known throughout the world.

At least one of your children can become so mighty that where you never never thought you could reach, He will take your name there.

My father was a Lay Reader in the Anglican Church and I am talking about 1940-something.

Now, if you know anything about Anglican Church, you know the Lay Reader is below the Catechist; the Catechist is below the Reverend, the Reverend is below the Canon; the Canon is below the Archdeacon; the Archdeacon is below the Provost; the Provost is below the Bishop and the Bishop is below the Archbishop.

And even the Archbishop in one nation is below the Archbishop of Canterbury – the biggest one.

My father was a lay reader but today by the special grace of God his son and the Archbishop of Canterbury are working together hand in hand for evangelism in Britain.

By the special grace of God, I don’t want to announce it in public, but there is an agreement between the Archbishop of Canterbury and the son of that Lay Reader on what they can do to bring Britain back to Jesus Christ.

 I hereby decree that where you never can reach your children will take your name there.

O thank You Father.

I want to take just one more example and then we will round up.

But, the Lord says there is someone here today and this is real good news; He said regardless of household enemies, I will take you to where I plan to take you.

Now, I want to talk about Elisha:

You know that is my friend, there is no way I can forget that one.

You know his father – when I say father, I am talking about his spiritual father – Elijah.

Elijah was a mighty conqueror.

I want to say amen to this one.

Daddy says there is someone here today, He said tonight mark a major turning point in the history of your family.

And Daddy is talking to someone; He says there is a Joseph already in your family, you will recognize him soon.

Now, Elijah, you know Elijah, he was a mighty man of God; far far stronger than his enemies.

He could shut the heavens: 1Kings chapter 17 verse 1, he told Ahab, you unless king, I close the heavens until I ask for it no rain and immediately the heaven was shut.

He was a food multiplier: 1Kings 17 verse 8 to 16, he multiplied the food of the widow just by saying so.

He was death chaser: 1Kings 17 verse 17 to 24, he chased death out of the house of the widow.

He was a fire commander

(I am talking of Elijah)

1Kings chapter 18 verse 30 to 39, he prayed and fire fell from heaven.

And he was an enemy roaster

I like that one.

2Kings chapter 1 verse 9 to 12, some enemies came to arrest him and he roasted them.

But, what about Elisha

He was a young man with the double anointing which will explain why we are doing anointing service tonight.

He was a man who can just say a word and causes a destroyed -2Kings chapter 2 verse 19 to 22.

He was a destroyer of poverty, Elisha was.

That is the kind of children you should have in the home.

You know there are some children, the moment they come into a house blessing will just begin pour in.

2Kings chapter 4 verse 1 to 7, a widow was destitute and she came to Elisha and Elisha said don’t worry, your debt will be paid and you won’t even have to borrow again.

He was commander of commanders.

Naaman came to him, he did not even bother to go and see him; he said, tell him to go and jump in river Jordan seven times and he will be healed and the commander had to obey.

And he was arrester of the arresters.

2Kings chapter 6 verse 8 to 23, they sent a whole army to arrest him, he arrested them all.

And kings call him daddy – 2Kings chapter 13 verse 14.

Even after he died, there was enough power left in his dead bones to raise the dead – 2Kings 13 verse 20 to 21.

Haa, this is serious one.

The Lord says there is someone here, He said the one who is teaching your child to steal will be expose this month.

I want to say thank You Father for this one because it is for, I mean you will understand.

Daddy said to me just now; He said, son, all those who are genuinely treating you as a daddy will be specially blessed.

I think you should thank God for me.

Thank God for me.

I think you should thank God for me.

So, we were talking about Elisha, his father was a terror to kings; he was a daddy to kings.

I have said it before, it is powerful thing, a great thing to be able to roast your enemies and some of these enemies deserve roasting.

We prayed a prayer here; I know nobody would want to admit that prayers walk.

But we prayed a prayer here if you will remember that those who are keeping our girls in captivities won’t be able to rest; that the fire of God will begin to burn them.

Well, they are going to say they negotiated and that is why the victory came but I know my God is at work.

And I am still going to say again, all those who are holding my girls in captivity the fire of God will continue to burn them until they release them all.

But it is far far better if instead of roasting them they can come and surrender.

How beautiful will it be if the head of boke haram should become a Christian?

How beautiful will it be if in a couple of month now he is stands there at the altar and he says this is me, I used to be a terrorist, now I want to be a pastor?

If you hear that testimony will you rejoice?

Elisha had that kind of anointing.

And that is why tonight we ask all our children to come for anointing because the anointing makes the difference.

It was anointing that gave Samson the power to tear a lion into two.

Judges chapter 14 verse 5 to 6, when you read that story seating down in the church, we don’t get the full impact

I have told you before, the first time I saw a lion it was at a zoo, I think it was in Kano.

It was a huge one; alone in the cage; the cage was long and the bars were strong.

And we all move close to the cage when that thing is walking away, we came near the cage.

But when he got to the end of the cage and turned, every one of us, anointing or no anointing will move back; that is what a lion is like.

Then, when the anointing came on Samson, he grabbed that thing and tore it into two.

The anointing to destroy lions shall come upon you tonight and shall come upon your children tonight.

In Judges 15 verse 11 to 15, household enemies bound Samson and they handed him over to external enemies;

And there are some of us we have enemies all over: enemies from our father side, enemies from our mother side, enemies in husband house, enemies in the wife house, enemies in the place of work;

So of us wonder, why am I the only one here?

The enemies within handed Samson to enemies without;

But when the anointing came, not only the enemies without destroyed, the enemies within were disappointed.

I am praying for you tonight that after tonight anointing service, all enemies within and without, whatever their plans concerning you they shall be disappointed.

And so now I am going to ask you to pray just for about five to ten minutes and I want you to pray that prayer very well as we get ready for the anointing service.

I want you to stand on your feet or if you want to knee you are free to do so and just cry unto the Almighty God and say: Father, anoint me for victory; anoint my children for victory.

Please go ahead and cry to the Almighty God.

Just talk to Him.

Father, please anoint me for victory; anoint my children for victory; anoint my family for victory; complete and absolute victory. Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Now, the Pastors have been distributed into various sections of the auditorium so as to make the matter quicker.

So, you will look around you, you will see where they are, so you go to the nearest section, get yourself anointed.

We are children in the hand of the most high God.

Hold on, hold on, don’t begin until I say so and there should be no rushing.

When you are coming for the anointing, one of the things you need to teach your children from childhood is giving unto God.

So, put something in the hand of your child so that when they come they will drop it in a basket near where they anoint you.

Let them drop it with their own hand so that they would have victory not just over physical things but over material things also.

So, as you are coming they will anoint child and they will anoint you because we are all children.

And then I will anoint the national overseer and he will help me anoint the people on the altar here

And the band will begin to worship God

When we finish, we will round up.

Now, you can begin.

                                   MAY HOLYGHOST SERVICE

THEME: STRONGER THAN YOUR ENEMIES (PART 5): Habitation of the Almighty.

                                                 May 4th, 2018.

                                       By: PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE

***Speaking in the Holy Spirit

Thank You Father.

May Your name forever be glorified.

Thank You Father.

Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have worshipped.

Lift your voice to Him loud and clear and say: Father, this very evening do something special in my life.

Open your mouth and cry the Almighty.

Even right now my Lord and my Saviour do something special in my life. Blessed Saviour do something, something very special in all our lives tonight. Let this be very special night of divine visitation; visit us tonight Lord, bless us in a special way, do something great, something wonderful, something marvelous, something divine, in all our lives tonight. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

You are worthy to be praised

You are worthy to be praised

You are worthy to be praised

You are worthy to be praised

My Redeemer

You are worthy to be praised.

Father we bless Your name. Thank You for January, thank You for February, thank You for March, thank You for April and now thank You for May, Father, accept our worship in Jesus’ name. Tonight, in the life of everyone of us and those who are connected with us all over the world – watching  by the internet, television or radio – please Lord God Almighty, do something special; let this night be a night of special divine visitation; bless us like never before and at the end of it all take all the glory.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Now, I am going to ask you to join me in a very special section of prayer before we proceed further.

I was in Germany and my wife of more than 50years said to me, she said, Darling you are unusually quiet this morning; what is the problem?

I said, well, there is no Father who will lose nineteen children in a day and will not be quiet.

She said, what do you mean?

Because she had not heard the news that in a church somebody went in and shot nineteen people.

Because it does not matter the denomination, by the special grace of God, all Christians in Nigeria call me Daddy.

So when any of them dies, it is my son that is dead or my daughter.

I am going to ask you to join me in prayer because unless these killings stop and stop immediately, even Nigeria may not live.

I am not talking about individual now; I am talking about Nigeria itself.

A Bishop asked me some time ago, Daddy…, it is a strange thing; only in Pentecostal chapels you hear a Bishop calling a Pastor Daddy

Daddy, has God told you who will win the next election?

I say Son, I am not even sure there will be an election because unless these killings stop there may be no election next year.

Are prophesying Daddy?

No, no, no, I am not prophesying, I am just reasoning.

Because nobody will want to go out to vote if they are not sure they will be able to return home safe.

I have seen war at close quarters when some people are agitating for war not too long ago.

There is nothing good about war, it is terrible thing.

But a nation may survive a civil war; no nation can survive a religious war and remain the same.

That Nigeria may live, this killing must stop.

So all of you who love Nigeria, I want you to rise on your feet and cry to God with all your heart and say: Father, let the killings stop.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Father, please, let the killings stop; that Nigeria may live Lord God Almighty let the killings stop. Let the killings stop O Lord; please, Almighty God, let the killings stop. Please Lord, let the killings stop; that Nigeria may live, let the killings stop. O Lord God Almighty, that Nigeria may live, let the killings stop, let the killings stop, let the killings stop please Daddy; let the killings stop. O Lord have mercy on us; have mercy  O Lord, have mercy on Nigeria, please Daddy, let the killings stop; let the killings stop, let the killings stop, let the killings stop; please Lord let the killings stop. Thank You Father. Let the killing stop, let the killings stop Lord, let the killings stop, please Lord, let the killings stop. O thank You God. Thank You Father. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

Today we want to talk about: Stronger than your Enemies Part 5, under the subheading: Habitation of the Almighty.

Our text is going to be 1John chapter 4 verse 4:

And why you are opening your Bibles I want to really really bless the name of the Lord for the wonderful testimonies we heard tonight.

God is increasingly answering my prayers.

You know, one of my cardinal prayers is that my children will be greater than I.

Now, one of my children has been use of God to raise somebody who has been dead for twelve day;

Haa, glory be to God.

I was a sport man but I never went to the Common Wealth games;

One of my daughters went and came back with gold.

God is answering my prayers.

How many of you are sure your tomorrow will be alright?

How many of you believe you will be far far greater than I?

Let me hear you shout hallelujah.

What a wonderful God will serve.

House fell, husband was there, wife was there, the only child they have is there, and God brought them out without a scratch!

What a wonderful God will serve.

My daughter just anointed a man with a goiter and the goiter disappeared before the morning.

What a wonderful God will serve.

1John chapter 4 verse 4:

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

You are habitation of the Almighty that is why you are stronger than your enemies.

As usual we will break our ministration into two parts: One small part – for those who are yet to give their live to Jesus and then the rest – for the rest of us.

When the Almighty God is dwelling in you, you will become a treasure; a treasure even to God Himself.

Because 2Corinthians 4 verse 7 says concerning those of us who are Christians that we have this treasure in earthen vessels.

There is something in you, your body is made of mold in earthen vessels;

But when Christ is dwelling in you then you have a treasure in that earthen vessel

So that the power that you begin to demonstrate will be of God, the excellence will be of God not of you.

A person is born again when somebody invites Jesus in his or her heart that person become a treasure to God.

So according to Zachariah 2 verse 8, anyone who touches that fellow is touching the apple of the eye of God.

Because you have treasure in your earthen vessel; because the Almighty is dwelling in you;

Anyone who tries to harm you is playing with the apple of the eye of God.

So, God will protect His own.

According to Zachariah chapter 2 verse 5, He said, He will build a wall of fire round about you because of the treasure that is in you.

When you go to houses in Mushin or Agegunle…; don’t think I am looking down on them, that was where I used to live before I came to the camp, so I am part and parcel of them;

…you don’t find many houses in Mushin with walls built round the houses.

You know why not?

What is the thief coming to still?

But go to Ikoyi, go to VI, go to Lekki, many at times you wonder whether, as a matter of facts you will be wondering how many prisons have we in Lagos?

Because you will see houses surrounded by huge walls and on top of the walls barb wires of the sharpest type.

Why?

Because there are treasures inside – treasures.

If a man has only two pair of trousers, two shirt and a third class or third hand bicycle;

Does he need a bodyguard?

You want steal the bicycle, the kind of bicycle we called keke-elemu.

Ehen, come and steal.

Why do we surround our president, our vice-president, our governors with so many people – bodyguard?

It is because they are treasures.

I remember years ago when I was the president of PFN and then some criminals were targeting Bishops all over the place;

My people called a meeting and said Sir, you need bodyguards.

I said, what for?

They say because you are treasure to us.

I told them that I have bodyguard that you cannot see, at least two of them.

When you are a child of God, you are a treasure because of what is in you – greater is He that is in you.

So God will defend you, build the wall of fire round about you; He will defend you from above.

Joshua chapter 10 from verse 6 to 11, the children of Israel were fighting a war and God began to rain bombs on their enemies.

The Bible said by the time the fight was over, those that were killed by God directly were more than those that were killed by men

Because the men were killing with sawl but God was breaking the head of the enemies with stones from above.

Some of you, some of the old people would remember this case very well:

A man and his wife came to church and after sometime we did not see the wife anymore

And we went to do follow-up: Sister, why are we not seeing you?

She said, since I started coming to your church I could no longer fly.

When you are child of God, the witches in your home will no longer be able to fly because God will be defending you from above.

And He will defend you even on earth here below.

In Numbers 16 verse 24 to 33, when some people rose up against Moses, God asked the ground to open its mouth swallow them and it did.

And I am decreeing today that if there are anythind present in your body right now, the ground will open its mouth and swallow them.

But if God is not in you, if you are not a child of God, you have not invited Jesus into your heart; you really have no value, you have no treasure in you and so the enemy is free to do whatever he likes with you.

In Judges 16 verse 18 to 21, when God departed from Samson the enemies moved in: they bound him; they plucked out his eyes; he became a prisoner.

I still remember very clearly as yesterday, a chief not too far from here; enemies were waging severe war against him.

His friend who happened to be a Christian invited me to come and pray and the Almighty God told me why are you wasting your energy praying for him, he is not one of Mine.

I told him, Sir, I thought you said you are a Christian; because God asked me to ask him some questions.

By the time I asked the questions, he said, I should not come again.

Are you a child of God?

Is God dwelling in you?

Because if He is dwelling in you, there will be special protection for you.

But if He is not, there is no treasure in you and the enemy is free to do whatever they like with you.

So, if you are here…, because we have a quite an assignment tonight; …if you are here and you have not given you life to Jesus Christ, it is in your own interest to choose:

It is either you invite Him into your heart and become a treasure to God

Or, keep Him out and you are on your own.

So I am going to counting from one to fifteen because I can see that some of you are very far away

Before I say fifteen if you want to surrender your life to Jesus, you want Him to come and dwell in you; you want to say bye-bye to sin because He will not dwell with sin

Then, before I say fifteen come and stand before me and I will pray for your salvation before will proceed further.

So, if you want to give your live to Jesus, you want Him to come and dwell in you, I am counting now:

One, two, three,

The choice is yours: you want to be a treasure to God or you just want to be someone who is not worth anything to God – the choice is yours

Four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen,

Amen.

Well, those of you who are on the way keep coming and pray as you come.

And those of you who are already in front, cry to the Almighty God.

Tell Him, I want You to come and dwell in me, save my soul and come and dwell in me; I want to be one of Your children, save my soul today, forgive all my sin; come and make Your abode in me.

Talk to the Almighty God.

And those of you who are on the way, keep coming and pray as you come. And the rest of us let us stretch our hands towards our brothers and sisters that God will save their soul, that God will have mercy on them; and the Almighty God will wash them clean with His blood, that they too will be accepted into the family of God. Pray for them.

Those of you on the way keep coming but you have to hurry up now. Thank You Jesus. Keep coming, keep coming, you are not late yet just make sure you get here before we finish praying because I am going to pray for salvation now; so, if you are coming, hurry up.

O yes, you need Christ in you for you to become a treasure to God. Cry unto Him, save my soul; come and dwell in me, come and dwell in me, come and dwell in me, make me one of Your children; wash me clean O Lord. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Saviour I want to say thank You. Thank You for Your word and thank You for these people who have come forward to surrender their lives to You. Please remember Your promise that whosoever will come unto You, You will in no wise cast out; they have come to You now Father please receive them in Jesus’ name; have mercy on them in Jesus’ name; please write their names in the book of life; accept them into the family of God and please don’t let them ever backslide in Jesus’ name; from now on, anytime they call on You please answer them by fire.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Those of you in front let me hear you shout hallelujah.

I want to assure you that from now on by God’s grace I will be praying for you.

So, the Counselors will give you a card, I need your name, your address and your prayer requests and I will be praying for you from now on.

God bless you.

We will wait for you till you finish filling the cards before we proceed further.

And I can see one or two still coming, keep coming, you are not late yet; the Almighty God will save your soul.

1John chapter 4 verse 4:

‘You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.’

When God is seated on His throne in heaven, He is in absolute control of the whole:universe.

Because He says in Isaiah chapter 66 verse 1, He says heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool.

So, He is seating in heaven and the earth is absolute on God’s control under His feet.

When He stands His enemies begin to scatter:

According to Psalm 68 verse 1 to3: let God arise and His enemies will scatter.

Now, when God begins to move, the earth begins to tremble

Because as I have told you before, when someone is seating in heaven and his leg is touching the earth that will tell you how long the legs must be.

So, when He begins to move, the earth begins to tremble:

Psalm 18 verse 6to 7 tells us that when He hears the distress call of His own, and gets up to act, then, the earth will begin to tremble and to shake.

When God is passing-by, He distributes miracles –

Like in Mark chapter 10 verse 46 to 52: He was passing by when Bartimaeus cried out and that day the blind man received his sight.

Now, when God arrives at wherever His going, there will be an earth quake:

Acts of the Apostles chapter 16 from verse 25 to 29, Paul and Silas where is prison, they began to praise God, God arose from His throne and came to pay them a visit and there was an earthquake.

At the end of the incident, the enemy who was asked to keep Paul and Silas secure became their servant;

Those who threw them to prison had to come and beg them to get out.

So I want you to imagine what happens when God comes into a place and decide to stay-put.

When He is in heaven, He is in control;

When He arises, He enemies scatter;

When He begins to move, the earth begins to tremble;

When He is passing by, miracles will be happening;

When He arrives, there is an earthquake;

Suppose He now comes in and He says this is where I will dwell; I AM not going anywhere anymore, I AM seating down here?

That is why Colossians chapter 1 verse 27 says Christ in you the hope of glory.

If God decides to come and dwell permanently in you, there is only one thing you can expect from then on and that is glory.

Some years ago there was political unrest in a particular state and they were burning houses, killing people but there was a particular town they left untouched

Ten kilometers to the right, there was another town, oh, burning and killing and looting.

Twenty kilometers to another side of another town, oh, that one was even more terrible.

To the left, to the right, front, back, but there was this town everything was peaceful.

So one of the traditional rulers sent to this king and said, what did you do?

He said some people came to my town to hold a programme and I have decided that Jesus will reign in my town; when the Price of peace is reigning there can be no trouble.

I am going to ask to pray your first prayer tonight and every prayer you pray tonight you better pray hard.

I want you to stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, King of glory, come and dwell in me permanently.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Come and dwell in me permanently, permanently; come and make Your home in me. Come and dwell permanent, come and dwell in me permanently; come, come, come, don’t just come to visit, come and dwell in me permanently, permanently. Come and dwell in me; come, You are well come; I open the door of my heart to You wide, come to stay, come and dwell in me permanently, permanently; come and dwell in me permanently. King of glory, come and dwell in me permanently; because I know if you dwell in me permanently, the only thing I can look forward to will be glory. Come and dwell in me permanently. Come and dwell in me permanently. King of glory, come and dwell in me permanently; come and dwell in me permanently. Thank You Father.

And so shall it be in Jesus mighty name.

Amen.

Please be seated.

Now, if Jesus comes to dwell in you, what does it really mean?

Number one: it means the great Healer Himself has come to dwell in you.

When He is passing-by, He heals.

Mark chapter 5 verse 25 to 34, He was passing-by, a woman with the issue of blood came from behind, touch the hem of His garment and was healed.

In John chapter 9 verse 1 to 7, He was passing-by, He saw a man who was born blind and gave him two new eyes.

Many at times when you read these stories some people think is just something happening;

But something that happened years ago is still happening today.

When He is visiting a particular place – In Mark chapter 2 verse 1 to 12, when the news spread,  the great Healer is in this house –  there was someone who was paralyzed from neck downward, his friends carried him in.

As soon as he got to the presence of God, the one who was carried in left on his own carrying his bed with him.

It is not a question of Him coming once in awhile now, we are talking of resident Healer.

Because some of us might have private Physicians, Doctors you can call anytime you are sick

But he may travel; he himself can fall sick; on his way to attend to you it may be too late;

But when the Healer Himself is dwelling in you, the story becomes different.

I have told you the story before…; before you pray your second prayer

Years ago we were going to hold a programme in Port-Harcourt and the Lord spoke to me that I should go and stay in the house of a brother.

At that time that Brother was not even a member of our church

I said yes Lord because I must obey Him

But I was wondering, I have many children of my own in the town, why must I go to the house of this man?

Anyway, I told him God said I should come and stay in your house and he was overjoyed.

I got there and I discovered he has some children.

One of them, the first born boy became very friendly with me.

And one day as I was going for the crusade, I heard the sound of a car coming, I thought the children were coming from school.

I looked out, where is my friend?

Oh, your friend is in the hospital, he is dying.

Haa, what happened?

He was poisoned in school.

And immediately I heard God say, that is why I ask you to go and stay in the house.

I went with them to the hospital on my way to the crusade ground;

He was lying naked in a private room; the AC was fully on and yet he was sweating like no man business.

I was standing by the head of the bed to pray for him and the father was standing at the foot of the bed, the Doctor was standing behind the father.

I looked at the Doctor, the Doctor made a sign to me to say no hope.

But my Daddy has already said that is why I asked you to go and stay in the house.

I went to crusade ground, we finished the crusade, I came back home; as I was about to settle down, I heard the sound of car coming in; my little friend had been discharged.

Stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, thou the Lord that healeth, come and resides in me.

Cry unto Him

Come and reside in me; come and reside in me; come and reside in me; there are things Doctors cannot do, but You are the great Healer, come and reside in me, come and dwell in me; if You dwell in me I will overcome sickness, I will overcome disease, come and dwell in me Lord, come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me; Almighty God, come and dwell in me, come and dwell in me. If He is dwelling in you, you will overcome sickness, you will overcome disease, come and dwell in me; dwell in me, dwell in my house, dwell Lord; dwell before sickness could come, come and dwell; before disease can come, come and dwell; come and dwell Lord, come and dwell in me; come and dwell, come and dwell with me. Thank You Jesus. Come and dwell Lord, come and dwell in me so that sickness and disease will have no power over me, I can overcome; dwell in me, dwell in my wife, dwell in my children, dwell in my home; come and dwell Lord. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Christ in you means you a resident Protector.

Psalm 24 verse 7 to 10 calls Him the Lord of host – the Lord of host Himself.

When He travels, He does not travel alone

Revelation chapter 19 verse 14 tells us the armies of heaven follow Him.

So you can imagine when He is dwelling with you, the army, His army of bodyguards will be there.

In 2Kings chapter 6 verse 8 to 17, when an army, an enemy army came to arrest Elisha and the servant went out and saw that they were surrounded and he said my master, what shall we do, we are down fall.

The Bible said, Elisha prayed and said God please open his eyes.

When his eyes were opened, he saw horses of fire, chariots of fire, invisible bodyguards.

When Christ is dwelling in you, when you genuinely allow Him to dwell, He will not just protect you, He will protect those who are connected with you.

Because of you, He will extend the protection to those who are precious to you.

I have told you the story before.

I think I was in a country in East Africa we were going to dedicate the church of the Bishop of another ministry.

And because of the traffic they gave me out riders, policeman to ride ahead.

And as we were going, this policeman, young man, rode across to the junction to stop the traffic to pass

But all of a sudden, whether the driver could not control himself or whatever, a car came and just crushed him, flown from the motorcycle; the motorcycle itself was a write-off.

I am sure before the boy hit the ground he was dead.

Oh God!

I said, Lord, but he is with me!

He is with me; he is part of my thought.

If it were my own programme I would have cancel the programme but it was another man programme.

So I went for the programme; in the mean time they carry the lifeless body away to the hospital.

After we finished the programme, as we came back home I was asking people this young man: is he married? has he children?

What can we do to help him; because he died because of us?

And they said they will find out.

And the news came back.

They took him to the hospital dead but within minutes he came back to life.

No bones broken; no scratches; and I saw a car run over him at high speed.

Stand on your feet, lift your hands to the Almighty God and say: Father, Lord of host, abide with me.

Open your mouth and cry.

Lord of host, abide with me, abide with me; Lord of host, come and abide with me; I know if You abide with me, Your own heavenly security guard will abide with me and with mine; You will keep me save, You will keep mine save, come and abide with me. Come and abide with me Lord; come and abide with me; come and abide with me; come and abide with me; come and abide with me; come and abide, come and abide, come and abide with me. Lord of host please come and abide with me; come and abide with me; Lord of host, come and abide with me; come and abide with me; come and abide, come and abide with me; come and abide with me; I need You Lord, I need You in my life, I need You in my home, come and abide with me; particularly at this dangerous times Lord come and abide with me; come and abide with me; Lord of host, come and abide with me. O thank You Father. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

If Christ is dwelling in you, what does that mean?

It means you have resident Life in you.

Because He said in John 11 verse 25…

Thank You Father.

The Lord said there is someone who came here tonight with tremendous heat inside your body; He said may be you did not notice but the heat it is gone.

Thank You Father.

The Lord said there is a woman here, He said according to Doctors your womb is totally dead, He asked me to tell you, He has given your womb a new life.

O thank You Almighty

Daddy asks me to tell someone, in spite of rugged resistance from your family members, you will be great.

 Let them resist as much as they like, you will be great.

John 11:25: Jesus Christ said, I AM the Resurrection and the Life.

So, if the One who is Resurrection and the Life is dwelling in you, if death comes knocking, you will just tell the Resurrection and the Life to go and open the door;

And when He opens the door and death sees Him and says Oh I don’t know you live here

O yes, this is where I reside.

Death will back off.

In 1Kings chapter 17 verse 17 to 24, in the story of the widow of Zarephath, when death came to steal her son, she handed the matter over to Elijah

Because she knew Elijah has connection with the One who is called Resurrection and the Life.

And of course you know the end result; the child came back to life.  

In 2Kings chapter verse 18 to 37, in the story of the Shunammite woman when her son, the only miracle son died, they sent Elisha and he came and of course the child came back to life.

But in the case of Jesus dwelling in you, they won’t have to send for Him, He is already inside.

In the case of Lazarus they sent for Him, He said, I am still busy, I will come.

But if He is dwelling, dwelling, dwelling with you, if He is inside of you when death comes, death has no option, death has to leave you.

I decree today that every of one of you that they say will die, you will not die; you will live and do the work of God.

You remember the story of that young man when they held festac in Abuja several years ago and on their journey back they had an accident and several people died.

This fellow did not die but he was unconscious and they carried him to the hospital and he was in coma for several days.

They could not bury him because he was still breathing but he was here at all, he was far gone.

But once in a while, he will seem to come up and when he opens his mouth one word will come out: Jesus.

Then, he lapse again and he may be gone for two days, three days;

And then he seems to come up again and say Jesus.

They could not bury him because he was still breathing

You cannot bury a man who is breathing.

That went on for weeks until one day he came up again and said Jesus and opened his eyes

Because the Resurrection and the Life was in him when death came, death could not take him.

Stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, the Resurrection and the Life, come and dwell in me.

Come and dwell in me, come and dwell in me; make my heart Your throne, make my heart Your throne, come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me; You the Resurrection and the Life, come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me; just come and dwell in me, make my heart Your throne; make Your throne in my heart, seat down there, reign in me, reign in me, reign, come and reign in me, come and reign in my heart so that I won’t have to fear death because I know the Resurrection and the Life is dwelling in me, come and reign in me; come and reign in me; come and reign in me. Thank You Father. Come and reign in me, so that wherever I go I know there is life, God life, the Resurrection and the Life Himself is dwelling in me, seated on His throne in my heart. Come and reign in me. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

If Christ is living in you, if the Greater One is dwelling in you, what does it mean?

It means you have a resident faith – the faith that is kind God’s faith.

Because Hebrew chapter 12 verse 2 says He is the Author and Finisher of our faith – The Author and Finisher of our faith

If the Author and Finisher of faith is dwelling in you, suddenly you have the kind of faith that is beyond the ordinary.

And according to Mark chapter 9 verse 23, suddenly you will find yourself in same categories as God Himself – the category of the Almighty

Because Jesus Christ said, if you have faith, all things are possible to him that believes.

If you have faith

In Mark in 11 verse 22 to 23, He says if you have the kind of faith that God has then you can say to mountains move and mountains will obey.

You need that kind of faith;

I need that kind of faith;

The kind of faith that everybody will say your own faith is different.

I have people say it before and I am sure very soon they will be saying it of you also, the faith that we cause God to move, the faith that will activate, that will compel God to do something for you.

Several years ago when I first became General Overseer, I was visiting our little churches here in Lagos

And I was visiting two/three churches in a day.

So I got to Alagbado first, finish there and moved down to somewhere else.

A woman came after we left and say I heard that there is going to be programme that is why I have come.

They said, they have come and gone

And she began to roll on the ground weeping.

Woman, why? What is the problem?

She said I told God, I am not asking the man of God to pray for me, I just want to set my eyes on him.

I told God if I can just see him at a distance, I know I will be pregnant.

Oh! They said we heard an announcement that tomorrow he is going to be at such and such a place.

She said, is that true?

They said, yes.

She said wonderful.

Before the church open the following day she was there

And then we came in; all of us were dressed alike

She did not know who is who

But she knew sooner or later they will introduce the man who is going to preach.

As soon as they introduced us, I step on the pulpit

She said, haa, I have seen him, my problem is solved.

That month she became pregnant.

Stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, that kind of faith that can move mountains, let it dwell in me.

Let it dwell in me; let it dwell in me, that kind of faith that does not the need prayer of anybody; that kind of faith that will get miracles done without anybody interfering; that kind of faith that will move mountains, God let it dwell in me; let it dwell in me; let it dwell in me. the kind of faith Lord that can get result every time; that kind of faith that will make the impossible possible; that kind of faith that will put me on the same category as the Almighty Himself, let that faith come and dwell in me, dwell in me, dwell in me richly, I need that kind of faith; I need that kind of faith; I need that kind of faith. You are the Author and Finisher of faith, come and dwell in me and that faith will be mine; come and dwell in me and I will have that faith that can move mountains; Lord, come and dwell in me. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

And so, if Christ is dwelling in you, that means you have in you resident peace.

Why?

Because according to Isaiah chapter 9 verse 6: …

Thank You Father.

The Lord asks me to tell someone, you are down today but not only will you bounce back, you will bounce higher.

The Lord asks me to tell a pregnant woman, He said just now the baby in your womb jumped, He asked me to tell you it is because he is going be servant.

So take good care of that baby.

I want to say amen to this before I tell you.

Because the Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said, I will yet use you to shake the world for Jesus.

Isaiah chapter 9 verse 6 calls Jesus Christ the Prince of peace.

So, if He is dwelling in you, you have peace; the kind of peace that Bible says passes all understanding.

Philippians 4:7 says there is peace of God that passes all understanding, it comes through Christ Jesus.

It is the kind of peace that allows you to sleep even when there is a storm.

Mark chapter 4 verse 35 to 41, Jesus was sleeping in a boat and there was a storm;

Everybody else was worrying but He was enjoying His peace.

People have asked me, how have you been able to have a normal blood pressure all this years with all your children, with all the parishes and branches of Redeemed Christian Church of God all over the world?

It is because the Prince of peace is in me.

It does not matter what is happening, I sleep fine.

I have never lost my sleep over any problem.

In any case, weeping may endure for a night, joy is coming in the morning.

Peace

I told you the story before:

I was travelling to London;

We got Heathrow, we are fasten our seat belts

Beloveth, Nigeria Airways of Blessed Memory, when the Captain said, Ladies and Gentlemen we have a little problem 

What is the little problem?

The door in the belly of the plane refused to open that means the landing gear cannot come out.

And when you have problem in an Aero plane in the air, there is nowhere to park.

All of a sudden there was confusion.

I was travelling first class because somebody bought the ticket for me.

That day I knew that rich people don’t want to die.

All those who have been pretending that butter cannot melt in their mouth; all those of have been laughing; laughing in a very special way

All of a sudden they began to scream.

I still remember one woman who said, haa, olorun o, I am going to take care of my grandchildren

Nobody ask her.

And there was one man since we left Ikeja, he had this golden walking stick, the head has diamond on it; he has been getting up pretending to go to the toilet just to show us the walking stick.

But this time, he really wanted to go to the toilet.

He got up and the hostess said, seat down sir.

He said, who said so?

Now, I will tell you the truth, even myself I was frightened and I said God, You did not tell me this how this thing will end.

When I was saying bye-bye to my son at Ikeja, You did not say that is the end

And God spoke to me and said, no, it is not the end; I want to talk to you.

And I know that as soon as you land in London they won’t let us talk.

Oh, is that so?

Suddenly, peace came.

I pray for somebody here today, the peace of God that passes all understand shall invade your heart.

And Daddy began to talk to me: do this, do that; this is the way I want this done…

And in the mean time the plane was going round in circles because they could not open the door.

And when the noise became more, the Captain added petrol to the fire, maybe he did not realize that.

He said, why are you so agitated?

After all, the fire fighters at Heathrow are very efficient.

Haaa! Fire fighters!

You mean we are going to burn!

In the mean time why everybody was screaming, I was cool because the Greater One is dwelling me.

And after we finished talking, the door opened and we landed very safely.

I want you to stand on your feet and cry to Almighty God and say: Prince of peace, come and dwell in me.

Come and dwell in me; stay put, stay put in my heart. Prince of peace stay put in my heart; come and dwell in me, come and stay put, come and stay put, let me have the peace, the peace of God that passes all understanding; come and dwell in me Lord; Prince of peace, come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me. Thank You my Father. Come and dwell in me. Prince of peace, come and dwell, come and dwell, come and dwell in me so that for the rest of my life I will have peace; whatever may be happening I just want to have peace; come and dwell in me Lord; come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me so that I will have peace, so that I will have peace; O Lord come and dwell in me; come and dwell with me. Prince of peace, come and make Your abode with me, stay put in my heart, stay put in my heart. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

I want to close because I still have other things ahead for tonight.

Thank You Father

You know, occasionally like this I hear a song and when I hear a song I know somebody is about to sing that song

And the song that I am hearing now is:

I have joy like a river

Joy like a river

Joy like a river in my soul

I have joy like a river

Joy like a river

Joy like a river in my soul

Who is the one who will sing that song very soon?

If you are the one let me hear you shout hallelujah.

As long as the Greater One is in you, you are stronger than your enemies.

As long as He is dwelling in you, let them try all they can, they are the one who will get tired not you.

I have said it, the Holy Spirit is like air.

You know, when the Bible say Christ in you the hope and it says I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me like I discuss with you at the Holy Communion last night.

The Holy Spirit is just like an ordinary air: You cannot see it, you cannot hold it.

But as long as is in a football, twenty-two people will kick that ball from morning till evening, it is those kicking the ball that will get tired not the ball.

I have given the example of an aero plane; I don’t want to teach you Mathematics, not tonight.

But the aero plane queue seven four seven for example, carrying more than five hundred people with their lodges and everything

Come seem to land at a terrific speed; speed close to three hundred kilometers per hour, at times more.

Mathematically, scientifically speaking, the impact of that thing on the ground is enormous.

But the tyres because of the air in them, would take that tremendous impact and say to the plane, is that all you can do.

The plane keeps landing days after days, months after months, years after years as long as there is air in the tyres they will keep on saying try harder.

As long as the Greater One is in you, you can tell all your enemies, do your worst because I will overcome.

How many overcomers are here tonight?

Let me hear you shout hallelujah.

So, I am going to give you fifteen minutes to pray and your prayer this time will be with confidence.

If you want to come to the altar you are welcome.

You are going to just cry to the Almighty God: dwell in me; dwell in my family; dwell in my business; if You can just come and dwell, all these problems will be over. It does not matter what the enemy may be trying, you will overcome.

Go to Him and just talk to Him. Tell Him all your problems; tell Him the One that He is the All sufficient God, just dwell in me so that I will overcome anything that the enemy may throw at me.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

Tell Him, come and dwell in me then I will overcome sickness, I will overcome disease, I will overcome fear, I will overcome mountains, I will overcome anything that the enemy may throw at me; just dwell in me Lord, dwell in me.

Thank You Father.

Hallelujah Father.

Thank You Jesus.

Let us begin to bring our prayer to a close.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

The All sufficient God will grant your requests; He will dwell in your heart; He will dwell in your marriages; He will dwell in your homes; He will dwell in your families; He will dwell in your churches; He will dwell in your offices; and the strength that comes from within, that strength only God living in you can give, He will release to you today. You will overcome. Every attack of the enemies will bounce back to sender. All those who want you died, you will bury them; all those who want to keep you down, you will be higher than they. Your victory will be total; your joy will overflow; you will have joy like a river; you will have peace like a river. That kind of faith that can get anything from God, God will give you today. It shall be well with you and you will serve God till the end.

So shall it be.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Psalm 18 from verse 1 to 3:

1 I will love Thee, O LORD, my strength.

The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation and my high tower.

3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

We are talking about: Victory through Praise

And I want to spend the next few minutes – five minutes or a little more – to talk to those who are yet to be born again before we go to the bigger aspect of the programme.

God loves praise.

Psalm 22 verse 3 says He inhabits praise.

Praise to God is what water is to the fish; He dwells in praise

You could almost say if you take praise away from God there will be a problem, that is, He surrounds Himself constantly with praise.

And I will want you when you get home to study Revelation chapter 19 read from verse 1 to 6, you will see heaven is constantly roaring with praise;

Shout of hallelujah from one edge to the other of heaven, everybody just praising God.

Revelation chapter 19 verse 1 to 6 – you will keep on hearing great voices all roaring hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, almost non-stop.

The Seraphim are special angels created for making music.

In Isaiah chapter 6 verse 1 to 3, you will find that the Seraphim are constantly saying holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory.

There was never time when God said to these Seraphim, can’t you keep quiet for a while.

No, God inhabits praise; He loves praise.

In Revelation chapter 5 verse 11 to 14, the Bible says that the Angels that are praising God are thousands of thousands.

Thousands of thousands means millions

And then, ten thousands of ten thousands that is talking about Billions of angels;

The Angels are so numerous that the writer of the Book of Revelation just cannot tell you the figure;

So, he said, thousands of thousand; ten thousands of ten thousands angels combined with all the creatures in heaven and on earth they were all crying and worshiping praising God.

The Almighty God loves praise so much that He says in Jeremiah 33 verse 11:

He said when you are joyful what you should bring to Him is sacrifice of praise.

He loves praise.

He wants you to praise Him.

As some of these children have already told us, He just wants you to keep on praising Him, praising Him because He cannot praise Himself, so He needs you to join.

It is amazing that with all the angels praising Him in heaven, He is still looking for more praise.

And even if you have to praise Him sacrificially, He said bring the sacrifice of praise

You know, when I want to take thanksgiving offering, I have also told you, it is not how much you give to Him that matters when you are saying thank you, it is how you do it.

He wants you to praise Him

He wants you to dance

He wants you to rejoice.

But as much as God wants praise, He hates any form of sacrifice coming from a sinner.

Proverbs 15 verse 8, said, the sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to God; God does not want a praise coming from the wicked.

When He says abomination, I think I have explain the word to you before; just in case you are not there when I said it;

What is an abomination?

It is something that when you hear about it your body will crawl, something so repulsive; you don’t even want to hear it – it is called an abomination.

And I have told the story of what happened when two armies were fighting.

Don’t let me mention the name of the country.

The Government on one side, the opposite will always be called rebels.

And it happened that there was a particular village where the government forces were for some time before the opposition took it over from the government forces;

The soldiers who took over from the government forces wanted to punish the villagers for supporting their enemies;

And one of things they said was that they took the pregnant women and with bayonet of their guns they open their belly and brought out the babies –

That is an abomination; something that makes your body crawls and says how can somebody do something so bad.

That is how God feels when a sinner begins to praise Him.

He does not want to hear the praise of a sinner – it is an abomination to Him.

That is why you will understand Psalm 7 verse 11 says that God is angry with the wicked every day.

Because how can you be praising me when you know you belong to my enemy;

Hypocrisy – God does not like it all.

He says why are you calling Me Lord when you are not doing the things a command you.

Why?

It is mockery.

If you are not yet born again and you want to praise God, come and surrender your life to Him now.

Let His blood wash your sin away; let you become a child of God who will then qualify to open your mouth and praise the Almighty God.

So, I am going to count from one to ten.

If you are not sure of your salvation and you want to make sure, before I say ten come and stand before me;

And then I will pray with you and the blood of Jesus will wash away your sin and then you will become a child of God and then your praise will become acceptable to Him.

So, I am counting now:

One, two,

Sinner who is praising God is mocking God and you don’t want to mock God; so, give your life to Jesus, let Him wash away your sin and then your praises will become acceptable to Him.

Three,

Remember God cannot clap for Himself so He needs people to do the clapping for Him and when you are clapping for Him don’t do it as if He is begging you, do it voluntarily.

Four, five, six, seven, eight, nine,

Now, those of you who have come forward and those of you who are on the way…; those of you who are on the way, keep coming; …talk to the Almighty God now and ask Him to have mercy on you; ask Him to save your soul; ask Him to wash you clean with His blood and to write your name in His Book of Life. Tell Him that from now on you will serve Him; tell Him to become not just your Saviour but your Lord; that you will obey Him from now on. Cry unto Him and say Lord I have come for You to save my soul, please do so tonight. And those of you on the way, hurry up, keep coming.

The rest of us let us stretch our hands towards these our new brothers and sisters and intercede for them that the One who saved our souls will save their own souls also. Pray for them for a minute or two. Let us intercede for them now. Let us pray that the Almighty God will have mercy on them that His blood will wash away their sins and He will save their soul today and He will accept them in to the family of God. Those of you on the way keep coming, just make sure you get here before I finish praying and that will be okay. Thank You Father. Keep coming, keep coming, keep coming, you are not late yet, just make sure you get here before I finish praying because I want to pray for salvation now. Thank You Father. Keep coming, keep coming, I will wait ten seconds for you; keep coming.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Saviour I want to say thank You very much for Your word; I want to thank You for these Your children who have come to surrender their life to you; please Lord, everyone of them that has come to You today, receive in Jesus’ name; let Your blood wash away their sins; save their souls O Lord, write their names in the Book of Life; and please Lord, let them remain Yours forever in Jesus’ name. Any time they call on You from now, Father, please answer them by fire in Jesus’ name. Thank You my Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Now, those of you in front let me hear you shout hallelujah.

Good

I will be praying for you from now on; so, I need your names and your address and I need your prayer request. The Counselor will give you a card which you should fill very quickly; we will wait for you to fill the card and return it to the Counselors before will proceed further.

Congratulations.

If you have nothing at all to praise God for praise God for children.

Number two: Praise God for children’s teachers

Number three: Praise God for good parents.

Number four: Praise God for the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

And then, look at that child when she got to Philippians chapter 4 verse 4:

She said, rejoice in the Lord, again I say rejoice!

That is exactly how you should praise God.

Any time you want to praise Him, demonstrate; do it with everything in you.

I want you to stand on your feet and just praise God like a child.

Rejoice in the Lord!

Give Him praise; give Him adoration; do it like a baby, do it like a child. Show Him that He is your Daddy. Rejoice in the Lord and again I say rejoice! Come on, we are all children in the hands of the Ancient of days. Rejoice in the Lord and again I say rejoice!

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Please be seated.

Praise draws God like a magnet draws iron.

In John chapter 4 verse 23 to 24, the Almighty God through the Lord Jesus Christ said, He is a spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth and He seek such to worship Him.

God is seeking for worshipper; He is drawn to worshipper.

So, when you praise God, God the Father draws near.

When God the Father is drawing near, the first thing He does like one of my children said, is that He wants to leave His throne heaven and come to you.

And for Him to come to you, to leave His throne in heaven to come to you, the first thing He has to do is He stands up.

And Psalm 68 verse 1 to 3 says let God arise and His enemies be scattered.

He said, those that hate Him will flee before Him and those who don’t flee will be melted by fire.

Because you see, the Bible says in Psalm 97 verse 3, He said, His fire goes before Him and burns up His enemies round about Him.

If only you can praise God to the level that He can stand up, just stand up, your problems will be over.

You know, He made a promise in Isaiah 41 verse 10 to 13, when He said, I will help you, I will hold you by your right hand I will help you; He said, you will seek for your enemies and you will not find them.

I want to prophesy to someone: as incredible as it may sound, before the end of this month, there will be no enemy left in your life.

You see, the Bible says in Proverbs chapter 16 verse 7, it says, when a man’s way please God, He causes his enemies to be at peace with him.

You wonder what that passage means.     

There are various way God can cause your enemies to be at peace with you.

One: it can cause your enemies to destroy themselves – 2Chronicles chapter 20 from verse 20 to 25.

If your enemies are busy fighting themselves, you will be at peace; you will be at peace.

If all those who want to destroy you, if God suddenly send confusion into their mist and they are busy killing themselves, you will be enjoying peace.

He could do that.

Or, He could paralyzed them physically – Psalm 23 verse 5.

Psalm 23 verse 5 says, thou prepareth a table before me, in the presence of my enemies.

He neutralized them; He makes sure they cannot even move.

Or, He could paralyzed them mentally

Exodus chapter 14 verse 13 to 28 – Moses said, just look at the enemies very well;

He said because the enemies you see tonight, you will never see them again forever

And he explained, he said the Lord will fight for you.

And then when all of sudden the Red Sea opened and the Children of Israel began to go through the Red Sea, if God has not paralyzed the thinking of the Egyptians they would not have followed them into the middle of the sea; but He paralyzed them mentally.

There is an English proverb: “whosoever God wants to destroy, He will first of all make mad”.

And then, He could arrest them so that they will never be able to trouble you again.

2Kings chapter 6 verse 8 to 23 – the enemies came to arrest Elisha and Elisha arrested them.

He arrested them, got them feed, and send them back to their master; and the Bible said they never came back.

I don’t know what method God will use, whether by causing your enemies to fight themselves, whether by paralyzing them physically or paralyzing them mentally or arresting them, whatever method He wants to useIn the Name that is above every other name, very soon you will shout victory at last.

So how do I get God the Father to draw near?

Very simple:

Just follow the example of the juju musicians.

In those days before I was born again, we use to attend parties and the musician will come before the dancing begins and will collect the names of those of you who are there.

When he begins to play, he will begin to call your name one by one; and then he will begin to call you what you are not. 

And say, you are Emergence contractor, you are this, you are that.

You are looking at me as if you don’t know what I am talking about – that is okay.

Thank God for Jesus Christ.

And as he begins to call you those names, big names, something within you will say go and spray him with naira.

Something within you will say you borrow this money – the money in your pocket you borrowed it – and you tell that thing shut up, when I get home I will sort that one out.

They praise you until you get up.

How do I praise God till He gets up?

I begin to call Him His names.

He is Jehovah El-Shaddai, the All Sufficient One – Genesis 17 verse 1

He is the I AM THAT I AM – Exodus chapter 3 verse 14

He is the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – Exodus chapter 3 verse 15

He is the Most High, He is the Almighty – Psalm 91 verse 1

He is the One who is Higher than the highest – Ecclesiastes chapter 5 verse 8

He is the One whose sit enthrone above – Isaiah 66 verse 1 – says heaven is His throne.

He is the Holy One of Israel – Psalm 71 verse 22.

And then in the text that I read to you in Psalm 18 verses 1 and 2:

David said, He is my rock, my fortress, my God, my deliverer, my strength, my trust, my buckler, the horn of my salvation, my high tower…

I am going to ask you to do something in a moment

I want to remind you of something probably I have told you a couple of time before.

I told you my background: my father was not the richest man in the world (that is putting it mildly) and yet he had two wives and quite a few children;

And there are some of us who manage to get into school.

Whenever it is time to pay school fees he will pick a quarrel with the wives so that they won’t be able to come to him for money.

But my mother had a way of getting my school fees.

She will come very early in the morning and I was sleeping with my father on his mat and she will begin to eulogize my father:

You are the son of so and so; you are the son of so and so.

Your father has a farm that when a bird flies all day long they won’t be able to reach the end of the farm.

I never discovered where that farm is.

When your father threw a party, he fed the army, he fed the civilian;

She would just go on

Most of the thing she would be saying in those days, eh, I just wondered little boy over there in the …

Who is she talking about?

But my father loved it.

She would be going on and my father would say: you are calling on a man! It will be well with you in this house!

And then she will continue: the husband of my head, the owner of my head, the husband of my chest, this and this…

 And very soon my father is the one who will say, what can I do for you today?

Haa, we know things are hard but you know your child is ready for school and my father will say don’t worry we will find the money.

My mother will eulogize him until he will say don’t worry.

And then, he will go out and borrow the money because he has not got the money.

I want you to eulogize God just for few minutes.

Tell Him: You are the Jehovah El-Shaddai, You are the Almighty God, You are the Higher than the highest, You are greater than the greatest, there is no one like You, You are the I AM THAT I AM, You are my husband, You are my provider, You are my All in all, there is no one like You, You are my deliverer, You are my source, You are my joy, You are my strength, You are the horn of my salvation, You are my buckler, You are my trust, there is no one like You, heaven is Your throne, the earth is Your footstool, all power belong to You, there is no one like You, power belong to You, there is no one like You.

Eulogize Him; praise Him; call Him by His name. That is what David did and he never lost a battle. Praise Him. Call Him by His name. Tell Him You are the Jehovah El-shaddai, You are I AM THAT I AM, You are the Ancient of days, You are the Rock of ages, You are only One o Israel, You are the Lion of the tribe of Judah, I praise You. There is no one like You. Call Him by His name, let Him stand up for you and once He stands for you all the enemies will scatter; the enemies will scatter, the enemies will scatter. Praise Him. Give Him glory. Just call Him by His names: King of kings, Lord of lords, the I AM THAT I AM, the Ancient of days, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the holy One of Israel, I praise Your name, I give You glory, I give You honour. Thank You Father. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have worshipped.

May the Almighty God rise up for you today in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

And what happens when God the Son draws near?

Because I said, when you praise Him, He draws near.

When Jesus draws near, what will happen?

Because Jesus is greatly attracted to praise

When you read Mark chapter 10 verse 46 to 52: in the story of Bartimaeus, it will be amazing to you that in a multitude He heard the cry of a beggar.

But what He actually heard that caused Him to stand still is a statement: Jesus, thou son of David.

That was the game changer.

Haa, somebody knows me here, he knows me all the way to my root; haa, go and bring him.

Remember there were as many people who want to silent that man but the ear of God will hear praise no matter the crowd.

When He draws near, God the Son draws near, darkness has to go.

Why?

John 9 verse 5: Jesus Christ said, I AM the light of the world.

When He drew near, that day Bartimaeus was no longer in darkness

Because the Bible says in John chapter verse 4 and 5 says: the light shines in darkness and darkness cannot overcome it.

If you can praise Jesus so that He can draw near you, darkness will have to let you go.

Not only that, the day He drew near to Bartimaeus that was the last day he ever begged.

He does not matter how your situation may be looking like right now, in the Name that is above every other name, in the name of Jesus Christ you won’t have to beg again.

When God the Son draws near, He turns your enemies to your servant.

The very people…

Thank You Father.

The Lord says this person concern will understand. He asked me to tell you, storms come, storms go; and your present storm will soon pass away.

Thank You Father.

I want to say amen to this before I tell you.

God said there is somebody here tonight; He said very soon your singing will be louder than that of others.

When your praise attracts Jesus, He can turn your enemies to your servant and I like that.

Because the very people who are trying to silence Bartimaeus were the very same people God send to go and bring him.

In the Name that is above every other name you will stand on this altar and say this is the fellow who tries to destroy me, now he is my messenger.

Now, Jesus loves children specially and I am sure you know that.

Why?

Because in Matthew 21 verse 15 to 16, He told us out of the mouth of babes and sucklings God has perfected praise.

Children know how to praise God perfectly, in total abandon.

If we have any problems brethren it is simply because we think that we are too old to praise God like a child.

When that child was doing the recitation, the child that I showed in the clip, she does not care who is looking: rejoice in the Lord, again I say rejoice.

That child was enjoying herself; and I saw that clip and I say O my God.

How long before we so called adults would realize that before the One who is called the Ancient of days we are children?

There is nobody among us here today who is hundred years old – nobody.

And a thousand years is like a day before God.

If only we can approach Him like a little child, like a little child!

Like these children who came to praise God and some people were trying to stop the children, the Bible says Jesus rebuke them.

There is a big lesson in that one –

Number one: if you don’t want to praise God don’t bother those who want to praise.

Because if you are not praising God and you try to stop those who are praising Him, He will rebuke you and rebuke of God can be very terrible.

You know the story:

David danced before God; the wife looked at him and says you called yourself a king, look at the way you are dancing.

The Bible said she died barren.

She is the only barren in the Bible who died barren because she criticized the one praising God.

And not only that when Jesus brought the children, He said bring them, bring them; He did something, He carried them in His hands.

How many of you will just want God to just pick you up today and then just carry you, carry you, carry you, carry you.

O my God!

Several years ago I was burdened by several things:

Problems in the church; problems this way, problems that way; problems from unfaithful brethren, problems from deceivers;

And I sat down discourage and suddenly I heard God say My son do not worry I AM carrying you.

Haa!

If He is carrying me then He is carrying my loads.

If He is carrying me, He is carrying my problems.

I pray today for someone here from today onward the Almighty God will carry you.

But He can only carry children; He never carried any adults – No.

When Peter said if You are the One walking on water ask me to come over to you.

He said, come.

And Peter came out of the boat and was walking towards Him; he took his eyes off Jesus and he began to sink and he said help me.

Jesus just held him by the hand and together they walk back into the boat.

He did not carry him.

Why?

He is already an adult, too big to be carried. 

If only we can approach praise from that perspective from now on.

If we begin to praise Him like a child; let anybody say what they like, God will begin to carry us.

You know one of His names is the Burden Bearer.

I pray for every one of you here today, in the Name that is above every name God will begin to carry you.

 Not only did He carry them, He blessed them.

Haa, when you know the importance of the divine blessing, if that is all that you get from God for praising Him, you don’t need more.

You can go through the scriptures; He said to Abraham, I will bless you – Genesis 12 verse 1 to 3

Abraham had nothing when God said I will bless you; some few years later the servant of Abraham said, God has blessed my master greatly.

Now, he has silver, he has gold, he has cattle, he has everything, because blessed him.

Many at times when I am walking about in the night and some people see me and they begin to run so I turn to them and I say God bless you.

Those who are intelligent among them will go back rejoicing – glory be to God; thank You Jesus.

But you will still see some people, Daddy, pray for me.

I had already say God bless you; there is no prayer greater than that.

Because when God blesses you, all the host of heaven will come and support you; everything on earth, everything underneath the earth will be working on your success.

I say in the Name that is above every other name God bless you.

I have given the example before:

In Genesis 27 verse 38 to 40, the only blessing that Esau got was a leftover blessing.

He said to his father: haha, don’t you have any blessing left?

The father said, well, let me give you a little bit that is leftover; a little bit that is leftover.

Not long after that one, when Jacob send to Esau, I am coming home.

The messenger came back and said Esau is coming to you with four hundred men.

Just a little God bless you!

Now, he has four hundred men has his bodyguards.

I tried to explain that to my children:

I said the first time a president came to Redemption Camp, to Holy Ghost congress, because of the security risk involved – open space, hundreds of thousands of people – he came with two hundred and fifty bodyguards.

But he is president.

Esau had four hundred.

So, who is bigger in the two?

And all Esau got was leftover blessing.

When you praise God the way you ought to praise Him, Jesus will carry you in His hand; He will lay His mighty hand on your head and bless you.

Today, in the Name that is above every other name, I represent the Lord Jesus Christ and I decree God bless you.

When you worship Jesus the way you ought to worship Him, you will get victory –

Victory over incurable disease, victory over legion of demons, victory over premature death; you just get victory upon victory.

Now, because of time, what happens when the Holy Spirit draws near?

Thank You Father.                                                                 

The Lord asks me to remind somebody, if He ask me to remind you it means He must have told you before; that between any two days there is an evening and He asked me to tell you: you might be passing through an evening now but your new day is very near.

Thank You my Father.

Now, this one is for me because the Lord says there is someone here today, the day is near when pleasant things will begin to happen to you in twos.

When the Holy Spirit draws near because the Holy Spirit is also attracted to praise, when He draws near, He shakes all the shakable.

When the Holy Spirit draws near, He shakes all the shakables.

Acts of the Apostle chapter 4 verse 23 to 31, the Apostles gathered in a room and they began to praise God: O You made the heaven, You made the earth, etcetera etcetera

And the Spirit of God came in and shook the house.

Anything the enemy had planted in you, planted in your house, planted in your church, planted in your place of work, shall be shaking loose tonight in Jesus’ name.

Because when the Holy Spirit comes in, He comes in like rushing mighty wind.

If you can just praise God so that the Holy Spirit can come in, He will come in as a rushing mighty wind – Acts chapter 2 verse 1 to 4.

So, He rather comes in like a rushing mighty wind or He comes in as fire.

When you are attracts the Holy Spirit through praise and He comes in, he comes in like fire and the fire will begin to burn everything that is hindering you –

Judges 15 verse 14 to 15 – they brought Samson bound to the Philistines and they began to rejoice thinking they have got him, the Holy Spirit came down mightily

And the Bible says the rope that bound him was burnt as if they come in contact with fire.

I don’t know what the enemies has used thus far to limit your progress but as we praise God tonight the Holy Spirit will come down and that fire of God will destroy every yoke in your life.

So, when the Trinity – God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit become attracted to you through praise then something happens.

According Psalm 67 verse 5 to 7, that one of my sons mentioned earlier on, He said let the people praise thee O God let all the people praise thee; then he said certain things will begin to happen:

Number One – the earth will begin to yield her increase; suddenly the ground will become fertile.

Do you know, if you praise God, if you are farmer and you sing praises while you are farming your harvest will be bounteous?

Then he went on to say, God, even our God will bless us.

But he went further that God will bless us and all the earth shall fear Him.

Do you know there are blessings that can frighten your enemies?

Oh, if you read Genesis 26 verse 12 to 16…

Thank You Father.                             

The Lord asks me to tell someone, He said relax I will not abandon you.

Thank You.

In Genesis 26 verse 12 to 16, when God blessed Isaac, initially the Philistines envied him but at a stage the blessing became so much and they became afraid of him.

You know God can so prosper you that your enemy become afraid.

That is going to be your testimony very soon.

But…, and I am closing now; …in that passage where he says let the people Him so that God can bless us fearfully, he included a condition and the condition is let all the people praise Him.

How many people are to praise Him?

So, even if you have to beg the fellow next to you and say please O if it is only for tonight join me in praising God;

Because he says it must be all of us, all of us, all of us.

I know you are a gentleman, I know you are a lady, I know you are important but for God sake if it is only just for tonight in order that God may send down that blessing that will cause my enemy to fear me, kindly join me in praising God.

You probably notice in the song we sang – special hymn that we sang, the last verse says “I will sing hallelujah’ and the next line says ‘join me in shouting hallelujah’.

So I am going to ask, please at least because of the rest of us, if you are not use to praising God, try tonight because everybody must praise Him.

If you are an elder you can seat down to praise Him, He will understand.

But those of us who are young for the next ten to fifteen minutes let us praise God like we have never done before and let us see what God we do this month.

Let us try Him and find out whether it is true that it is written if you will all just praise Him, He will bless us and the whole earth will fear Him.

So, if you are young and you are able please just stand up and begin to praise God and everybody should please do it.

If you cannot stand, you can seat down but you must please praise God and do it loudly, do not do it quietly; praise Him, praise Him like you have never done before.

And you are welcome if you want to come before the altar to praise Him it is okay by Him. Just go ahead and praise the Almighty God. Let us worship Him until God the Father will draw near, until God the Son will draw near, until God the Holy Spirit will draw near; let us praise Him; let us praise Him.

Please join me in praising Him.

Magnify His holy name. Call Him by His name; adore Him; do it joyfully; do it like little children; praise Him; praise Him. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have worshipped.

My Father and my God because these Your children have worshipped You tonight, arise for them, scatter all their enemies; enemies from their father’s house scatter them; enemies from their mother’s house scatter them; enemies in their places of work scatter them; enemies within and without scatter them and even the enemies within the house of God scatter them. Almighty God, in order that they may know that a praise to worship God, every one of Your children who have praise You today, give them a new testimony. The kind of blessing that will frighten their enemies, Father, release unto Your children. Thank You Almighty God. Thank You for victory. Glory be to Your holy name.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody now shout a really big hallelujah

And by the time the sun rises let everyone of us sing a new song. And all those who are listening to us all over the world, Father, defend them all.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Well, let somebody shout hallelujah.

Shake hand with two or three people and tell them the Lord of Host will defend you and then please be seated.

It is going to be a glorious night

Amen!

Thank You Jesus.

Now before we go to the big second section, as usual let us quickly give an opportunity to those who are yet to have Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

You see, there is an enemy common to every man.

According to 1Corinthians 15 verse 26, the Bible says the last enemy to be destroyed is death.

Everybody must face this final enemy called Death.

And this enemy has many agents including: Sickness

2Kings chapter 13 verse 14 says: and Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died.

Sickness is an agent of death.

It does not matter your anointing, you are going to face that last enemy – it is appointed unto man once to die and after that judgment.

Another agent of death is Poverty.

Do not let anybody deceived you, poverty have nothing good to offer.

As a matter of facts, Proverbs chapter 10 verse 15 says poverty is a destroyer – It said, the destruction of the poor is a poverty.

Another agent of death is Bondage – Spiritual Bondage.

In Mark chapter 5 verse 1 to 15, when someone is under spiritual bondage, he will even be trying to destroy himself – that mad man of Gadarene always cutting himself with stones.

It is when someone is in bondage that he begins to think of suicide.

Death is an enemy but he has agents: sickness, poverty, bondage.

Now, there is a link between sickness and sin.

Psalm 107 verse 17 to 20 says: Fools because of their transgressions were afflicted because of their transgression.

For example, Mark chapter 2 verse 1 to 12, when they brought in that man through the roof and laid him down at the feet of the Lord Jesus Christ, the first He did before He could discuss healing at all is to say, son, thy sin be forgiven.

There is a link between sickness and sin.

The Bible says the soul that sineth shall die.

So for victory over sickness to be complete and permanent you must sin no more.

John chapter 5 read it from verse 2 to 14; a man had been sick for thirty-eight years, Jesus healed him and told him sin no more.

There is a link between poverty and sin.

Proverbs chapter 13 verse 15 says the way of the transgressors is hard.

So for you to have complete and permanent victory over poverty, you must obey God completely – and obedience is another name for Holiness.

Deuteronomy 28 you can read it from verse 1 all the way to 13 (Deuteronomy 28 verse 1 to 13):

It says when you hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all that He commands you, that is when He says the blessing will begin to pursue you and overtake you; that is when He says you will no longer be borrowing, you will lend to the nations.

There is a link between bondage and sin.

1John chapter 3 verse 8, the Bible says, he that sin is of the devil – and the devil has the right to claim what belong to him.

So, to be free from bondage you must come to Jesus.

Because in 1John chapter 3 verse 5, the Bible says, Jesus Christ manifested to take away our sins.

Matthew chapter 1 verse 21 says for you shall call His name Jesus, for He shall save His people for their sins.

You want freedom, you want victory, you need to get quickly to Jesus Christ so that His blood can wash away your sins because the soul that sinneth dies

Because there is a link between sickness and sin;

There is a link between poverty and sin;

There is a link between bondage and sin.

That is why Jesus Christ said in Matthew 11:28 to 30 – come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.

Because if you come to Him, his blood will cleanse you from all sin.

The Bible says in 2Corinthians chapter 5 verse 17, therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature; old things are passed away, behold all things have become new.

A word is enough for the wise.

You want victory?

Come unto Jesus; He is the Lord of Host – He is the One who can defend you, He is the One who can fight your battle for you.

He is the One who can give you all round victory; who can give you victory physical because by His stripes you were healed.

He can give victory material because my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

He can give you victory spiritual because the Bible says you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free – and He is the truth.

The Bible says whosoever the Son shall set free shall be free indeed.

So, I am going to give you just two minutes, if you are here and you have not yet surrender your life to Jesus, before I count ten, come and stand before me and let me pray for your salvation.

He says anyone who will come unto Him, He will in no wise cast out.

Come; let Him save your soul;

Let His blood wash you clean;

Let Him take over the battles of your life.

And I am counting now:

One, two,

You cannot fight the battles of life alone; you need the help of the Lord of Host and He says if you come unto Him He will not cast you out.

His blood will wash away your sins; He will save your soul and things will begin to change.

Three, four,

 I know some of you are coming from afar, so you will need to move very fast.

This is your day of salvation; come now the Lord is calling you.

Five, six,

He is not only the Lord of Host, He is also the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world, come to Him and He will save your soul; His blood will wash away your soul; things will change for the better.

Seven, eight,

I know some of you are coming from afar, just keep coming; make sure you reach here before I finish praying because I must pray with you now for salvation.

Nine,

Thank You Jesus

Amen.

Okay.

Now, those of you who are already in front and those of you who are on the way, cry to the Almighty God now;

Say, Lord have mercy on me, save my soul, forgive all my sins and come and take over my life, I will serve You for the rest of my life, please save my soul today.

And the rest of us let us stretch our hands towards these people and intercede for them that the One who have saved our souls will their own souls also.

Let us pray that God will be merciful on them; that His blood will wipe away all their sins; that their name will be written in the Book of Life and they will become accepted into the family of God.

Let us pray for them.

Let us pray for them.

Those of you in front and those of you on the way, you cry to God yourself and say Lord have mercy on me, save my soul, forgive all my sins, wash me clean with powerful blood of Yours and I will serve You, I will serve You for the rest of my life.

If you are on the way just make sure you keep coming, don’t stop, get here before I finish praying.

Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

My Father and my God I want to thank You for Your word; I want to give You all glory and honour for these people who have come forward to surrendered their lives to You; Father, please remember Your promise that whosoever will come unto You, You will no wise cast out; they have come to You Father please receive them in Jesus’ name; have mercy on them; save their souls; forgive all their sins; let Your blood wash away their sins today; please write their names in the book of life; accept them into the family of God; and from now on fight their battles for them. And anytime they cry unto You please answer them by fire and don’t let them ever backslide, let them serve You till the end.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Amen.

Now, those of you in front I want to rejoice with you and those of you who are still on the way keep coming, keep coming, you are not late, the prayer I prayed has reached you where you are, just keep coming.

Those of you who are in front I rejoice with you because from now on I will be praying for you and the Counselors will give you card now which I want you to fill very quickly.

I want your names, your address, your prayer request and I promise you I will be praying for you.

Congratulations

God bless you.

Thank You Jesus

2Kings chapter 5, I will read very quickly from verse 1 to 15 or to 14 (2Kings chapter 5)

When my daughter was preaching and she started referring to 2Kings chapter 5, I said O God she had seen my note.

Wonderful wonderful preaching

2Kings chapter 5 from verse 1 to 14:

1 Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the Lord had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper.

2 And the Syrians had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman’s wife.

3 And she said unto her mistress, Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! for he would recover him of his leprosy.

4 And one went in, and told his lord, saying, Thus and thus said the maid that is of the land of Israel.

5 And the king of Syria said, Go to, go, and I will send a letter unto the king of Israel. And he departed, and took with him ten talents of silver, and six thousand pieces of gold, and ten changes of raiment.

6 And he brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying, Now when this letter is come unto thee, behold, I have therewith sent Naaman my servant to thee, that thou mayest recover him of his leprosy.

7 And it came to pass, when the king of Israel had read the letter, that he rent his clothes, and said, Am I God, to kill and to make alive, that this man doth send unto me to recover a man of his leprosy? Wherefore consider, I pray you, and see how he seeketh a quarrel against me.

8 And it was so, when Elisha the man of God had heard that the king of Israel had rent his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes? Let him come now to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.

9 So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the house of Elisha.

10 And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean.

11 But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the Lord his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper.

12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? May I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage.

13 And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? How much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?

14 Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.

In the Name of the One who called me, this night your victory will be total and it will be permanent.

When we talk about complete victory that is when we talk about all round victory; we are also talking about victory complete and total.

It means (just like my daughter told you) there is no area in your life where you are suffering defeat – it means no reproach.

Naaman had a reproach; a reproach that reduced victories in every area of life to nothing.

He was successful warrior, he was a General, he was at the top of his career; he was wealthy – You can see the kind of money he was taking to Elijah; that man was loaded.

He was famous; the king loved him but he was a leper.

That same ‘but’ reduced everything else to nothing.

Genesis 16 verse 1 to 5 tells us that Sarah was despised by her maid because she could get pregnant and the maid got pregnant; the maid made fun of the mistress because the mistress has a reproach in her life.

But then God moved and the one that was despised now could laugh.

I listened to the testimonies of tonight, particularly of that Pastor of mine who had been barren for twenty-four year but my God moved.

It does not matter how long your problem had been my God will move tonight.

In 1Samuel chapter 1, you can read the story from verse 1 to 20 (1Samuel chapter 1verse 1 to 20):

Hannah was loved by her husband; the husband was treating her very well but she had a reproach – she was barren.

The second woman tormented her and told her: what are you doing in my husband’s house; what is the use of a fruitless tree?

But God moved.

On behalf of someone here tonight, the Lord of Host will move.

In 2Kings chapter 4 from verse 8 to 17, the Shunammite woman had everything except one thing.

The Bible called her a great woman

If God says somebody is great that means the fellow must be great – She was wealthy, she was influential;

When the man of God said can I introduced you to the king?

She said, you do not need to bother I know the king.

Can I introduce you to the commander-in-chief?

She said no problem I know the commander-in-chief.

She was great but she was barren until God moved.

God can move in various ways to remove your reproach.

And one of the ways He can move is to silence the mockers.

And if the Lord lives that is the topic we will be discussing in September.

Almighty God is going to silence all the mockers in your live permanently.

In Psalm 115 verse 1 to 3, the Bible says why should ye then say where is my God?

He said my God will show them that I AM in the heavens and I do what I please.

In 2Kings chapter verse 1 to 7, the creditors were already coming to foreclose poor widow to sell her sons to bondage but God moved.

In 2Kings chapter 2 verse 19 to 22, the elders in Jericho said to Elisha – look at our city, everything is beautiful but we have a reproach; God moved and the reproach ended that day.

In the Name that is above every other name, every reproach in your life will end today.

Several years ago at Ebute Metta Headquarters, we were having a programme like this when of a sudden God spoke to me and what He told me I found it difficult to repeat but I knew what He said; I knew who was speaking.

He said, Son, there is somebody in the crowd, an important man, wealthy, influential, he has a problem.

What is the problem?

He will finish eating at the dining table and he had plenty of money to buy anything he wanted to buy and they will come and clear the table and throw the excess food into the cabbage;

And when nobody is watching he will go in to the cabbage to eat because there was something in him that says until you eat from that place no satisfaction.

And my God moved and got rid of the demon.

When he was sharing the testimony with me because it was a testimony he could not share in the open.

He said, how can I tell people that me, with all I have, I am still eating from the excess food that he took from my table and throw in the cabbage!

I don’t know what problem it is you have that you cannot discuss with anyone, in the Name that is above every other name that problem will be over tonight.

So, I am going to ask to stand on your feet and lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, every reproach in my life remove it tonight.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Every reproach, You know the problems that I cannot discuss with anyone, problems that I cannot tell the Pastor, problems that I cannot tell anyone; Lord, every reproach in my life remove tonight, remove tonight, remove tonight. My Father and my God, please, every reproach in my life that is not allowing my victory to be complete, please Lord remove it tonight, remove it tonight; every reproach, every reproach in my life; problem I have which I cannot tell anyone, please Lord, remove it tonight. That problem I cannot share with my wife, with my husband, I cannot share with my Pastor, every reproach in my life please Lord remove it tonight; remove it tonight. Thank You my Father. Every reproach in my life, remove it tonight, remove it tonight Lord; remove it tonight. The secret battle that I have been fighting all alone, that I cannot discuss with anyone, please Daddy give me victory there tonight, remove reproach from my life. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

We are using Naaman as a case study because when God finished with him, the Bible says there was no scars left, his skin became like that of a new born baby.

His victory was total – it was complete; it was absolute – and he was never a leper again.

So, his victory was not just absolute, it was permanent.

And the journey to this permanent victory started from within his house.

There was a maid there; there was a maid who was even brought from a foreign country;

It was this maid who said to the wife, said to the Queen, how I wish that this General would be in my land, there is help at hand.

God is going to reveal to you that help at hand tonight.

You see, many at times when you need help, you need what we called first-aid – help that must come immediately before we begin to talk about other things – immediate help.

Psalm 46 verse 1 says our God is the ever present Help in trouble.

Proverbs 27 verse 10 says a neighbour at hand is better than a brother that is a far off.

There are at times when you need help and you need it immediately

Exodus 15 for example, from verse 22 to 25 (Exodus 15 verse 22 to 25) tells us that the children of Israel were on their way to the promise land and they got to Marah and they could not drink the water because it was bitter.

And they were ready to pond on Moses but then God showed Moses a tree that was already growing at that place that turned the bitter water sweet.

In the story I read or I mentioned earlier on – 2Kings chapter 4 verse 1 to 7 –  the widow did not know that what God will use to perform the miracle of the deliverance from the creditor was a pot of oil that was already in the house; and neighbours with empty vessels that were already there.

Today, in the Name that is above every other name, that help that is already near you that will lead to your permanent victory God will reveal it to you.

In Matthew 17 verse 24 to 27, when some people said that Jesus and the Disciples should come and pay tax, the Almighty God guided Peter to a river that was nearby to go and catch a fish and the fish already had money in his mouth.

Even the one that God will use to help you might be already seating next to you; they might be a housemaid, might be somebody in your house already, might be somebody in your office; it might even be somebody who will help you say amen loud and clear tonight.

Many at times you need help urgently, urgently.

I have told you the story before, we were having the convention, we were still in the first auditorium and we were many then – that will be about ten thousand of us.

And because we told the people to come that they will all be feed; just trusting God for money and the people had come; the convention was on and I ran out of money – when I say I ran out, I mean ‘no kobo’ left.

And wife came: Darling, we need five thousand naira for the food for today.

I said, I see.  

When do you need the money?

Is it now or today?

She said, what is the different.

She said, today.

Okay, go.

And she left.

God, I am in Your hand.

Where the money will come from is up to You.

It does not long after that (I have told you the story before) one man was driving pass the express-way, saw the activities here and branched.

And said, what is going on here?

I said, we are having a convention; he was in flowing agbada.

Oh convention!

I said, yes.

That is a beautiful idea.

I said, yes sir.        

He said next year I will be part of this.

I am talking of food today, this man is talking of next year.

But then he said, but for now take this one; and he gave me one thousand naira.

I said, thank You Lord.

I bless him and he left.

I said, one down, four to go.

It was not long after that that some of the youth came led by a Pastor;

I saw an envelope in his hand and then he began to preach:

Daddy, we the youth we see how you are labouring for us, how you are feeding us spiritually; we don’t think you should be the one who will bothering about how we are going to be feed physically.

I said, give me this envelope; you can preach later.

And he gave me the envelope and I opened it – two thousand naira.

Haa! Three down, two to go.

It was not long after that that I sent to my wife: when exactly do you say you need the money?

I could swagger because God has provided.

Stand on your feet; lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, send help to me now.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Right now send help to me now, now, now, immediately, immediately; this night, not tomorrow morning, send help to me now. Send help to me now; Lord God Almighty, send help to me now, now; today, this very moment; send help to me now. Send help to me now. Please Lord God Almighty, tonight, this very night, send help to me. Send help to me now, right now Father, not tomorrow, today, before the sun rises send help to me now Daddy. Send help to me; send help to me now; right now, right now, even where I am now, send help to me, send help to me right now. Thank You Jesus. Send help to me now. Almighty God, please send help to me now; right now, right now, right now, Father send help to me now. Thank You Jesus. Send help to me now.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

And then as the story continues, we see that through the help of this little girl suddenly Naaman was connected to the one who will help his destiny.

As the Almighty God lives before the end of this month God will connect you to the helper of your destiny.

You just need to watch the story: the girl spoke to the wife – it is amazing – the wife did not do anything.

The girl spoke to the wife but while she was speaking to the wife other people heard.

One of the people who heard went in and told Naaman;

Naaman went and told his own king;

His king wrote to the king of Israel;

The king of Israel tore his dress;

Somebody saw what happen and reported the case to Elisha.

God works in mysterious ways; His wonders took a form.

I don’t know how He is going to do it but I want to assure somebody today; in His mysterious way He will link you up.

In Exodus chapter 4, you can read it from verse1 to 16 (Exodus 4: 1 to 16), Moses was the one God called: go into Egypt and deliver my people.

Moses said I am a stammerer, I don’t know how to talk.

God said, no problem I will link you up and He brought in Aaron.

Later on in Exodus 17 verse 8 to 13, when the Ammalekites came to attack the children of Israel, the same Aaron and Hur they are there lifting up the hands of Moses so the he could achieve his mission.

In Deuteronomy 34 verse 9, the Bible says Joshua the son of Nun was full with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him.

God had a plan for Joshua; He linked him up with Moses.

Consider Joseph that my daughter mentioned earlier on; God revealed to Joseph – you are going to be great; even your family member will be bowing down to you.

And then see how God arranged it – the brothers sold him to Potiphar; Potiphar’s wife tried to get him to sin and he refused; he landed in prison where he met two prisoners; he interpreted their dream and one died, one got back to the palace;

And then the king had a dream that nobody could interpret.

And the former prisoner, the ex-convict, remembered Joseph and brought Joseph into the palace.

How God will do it I do not know but in the Name of the One who sent me, in a miraculous way, to the one who will help your destiny God will connect you.

God will connect you.

I say it again, God will connect you.

I have told you the story before.

Sever years ago I wanted to go to University, I could have gone to Ibadan, I could have gone to Ife, I just decide to go to Nssuka.

I can tell you the story that led to that but I don’t have the time; probably you have heard the story before.

When at Nssuka, there was a lecturer an Indian; trouble came, we were driven home and then disappear, did not know where he went;

I finished up my first degree and I wanted to go further so I came for common wealth scholarship interview at the University of Lagos.

Well, I could have won the common wealth scholarship but I told you before in Mathematics, it is either you know the answer of the question or you don’t know – there is no guess work in mathematics.

Every question they asked me, I knew the answers – they were very simple questions.

I was wondering, these people who are asking me question do they know that I am Special Honours Graduate of Mathematics.

But after they finished asking me the questions, there was a man there who was sleeping why they were asking me questions.

And so they woke him up and they said do you have a question for him?

He said, O yes.

Where is Entebbe?

Haa!

I said, Sir, I am not here for Geography.

And everybody laughed.

I did not know he was the Chairman.

But the way they laughed I knew I had already failed.

But as I step out of the place, who did I see?

I saw my former lecturer.

Enoch, what are you doing here?

I said, I have come for common wealth scholarship but it looks as if I have failed.

He said, what do you want in scholarship?

I said, I want to go and further my studies Abroad.

He said you do not need to go anywhere, I know your stuff; come, come and study at the University of Lagos and I will supervise you.

That was how I landed at the University of Lagos.

That was when I got born again when I got born again.

That is why I am standing before you right now.

Stand on your feet, and lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, use any method but connect me to those who will help my destiny.

Open your mouth.

O Lord, whatever You want to use Lord just connect me, connect me to those who will help my destiny; connect me O Lord; connect me to those who will help my destiny; those who will help my destiny connect me Almighty God; use Your own method, any method You want, whichever mysterious ways You want to work, connect me to those who will help my destiny. Connect me to those who will help my destiny. Please Lord, connect me to those who will help my destiny; connect me soon; do it soonest Lord. Those who will help my destiny connect me to them; connect me to them; connect me to them; connect me to them; connect me to those who will help my destiny, do it this month Lord; connect me to those who will help my destiny, please do it. Thank You Father. Please Lord help me, connect me, use Your various method, whatever method You want to use just let me get connected to those who will help my destiny; please do it very quickly and I will give You glory forever; I will give You the glory forever. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Please be seated.

And then as we continue in the story of Naaman, we found that after that God connected him to the one who will help his destiny, who will give him complete absolute and permanent victory, he nearly destroy the plan of God for his life.

The man of God says go and wash in Jordan and you will be clean and he got angry.

Thank You Father.

The Lord ask me to tell someone, whoever that fellow is I rejoice with you because Daddy says He will heal you from your head to your toes.

Thank You Father.

The Lord asks me to tell someone, the force of darkness that has been tormenting you will not return.

O glory be to God.

I rejoice, I rejoice with this lady; the Lord asked me to tell you, your present pregnancy will not come down until maturity.

The Lord has taken over, so I better let Him do His job.

This is a very serious one because the Lord said there is someone here either in this auditorium or in the old arena, He says you belong to a gang, He asked me to tell you that that gang is going to be wiped out and He asked me to tell you run for your life, leave that gang and come to Jesus.

I have delivered the message; if you think I am lying, wait and see.

Get out of that gang or you will not see the end of July.

Do not say I did not warn you.

I am not the one warning you, it is what God said.

Okay.

Now, Naaman had two big personal problems.

Problem number one: he was proud

He was a General, successful General.

I don’t know what a leper could be proud about but he was proud – the rivers in my country they are better than Jordan!

If they are better, go and wash and let us see what will happen.

And he was a man of temper – the Bible said he went away in a rage.

And the word of God says, James chapter 4 verse 6: it says God resist the proud.

Check my beloveth if pride is your problem do something about it quickly.

Ecclesiastes chapter 7 verse 9 says anger rests in the bosom of fools.

If you are a man of temper, (forgive me for saying so) you are a fool; unless you deal with that urgently.

I don’t know what is your own internal enemy because the elder have a saying: if the enemy within does not kill you, the enemy without cannot kill you.

What is your internal enemy?

Is it appetite like in the case of Esau?

Is it I must get money at all cost like in the case of Gehazi?

When the Bible says if God be for us who can be against us in Romans chapter 8 verse 31.

The Bible did not answer that question.

If God is for us, the devil cannot be against because we will resist the devil and the devil will flee.

If God is for us, demons cannot be against us because we are to cast out devil.

If God is for us, herbalist cannot be against us because no weapon formed against us that could prosper.

But if God is for us and we are against our self, then we have a problem.

I will tell you a story.

Several years ago; that was long before I married; I had a girlfriend – beautiful, gentle (at least that was what I thought), always smiling – and I thought this is the one I will marry.

Then one day, one evening, around 8 O’clock I was going to her house, it was dark.

As I was approaching the house I was hearing a noise; as I look close I saw it was my girlfriend who was quarreling with someone and she was exploding like a volcano.

Hey!

Nobody saw me so I quickly backed off and in my mind I was saying God have mercy on the man who marries this girl.

Today she would have been my wife but she blew it because what was inside destroyed what was to be her destiny.

The Yorubas’ will say when they pray (I will say it in Yoruba and try to interpret it in English as best as I could):

“Won a ni k’Olorun maje ki ori inu wa ba to de wa je” – God, do not let my inner man destroy my destiny.

Please stand on your feet, cry unto God and say: Father, do not let my inner man destroy my destiny.

Open your mouth and cry to Him, it is very important prayer.

Do not let me be my own enemy; do not let me be my own enemy. Do not let my inner man destroy my destiny please Lord; please Lord, please Lord do not let my inner man destroy my destiny; do not let me be my own enemy; do not let me be my own enemy; do not let me be my own enemy please, please Lord. I know You have great plans for my life but don’t let me destroy the plan myself; don’t let my inner destroy my destiny please. Please Lord, do not let my inner man destroy my destiny, help me, help me. Thank You Father. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

 Please be seated.

And then sometime happened; Naaman was going away in a rage – that was what the Bible says; he was not just going gently, he was furious.

And if you know anything about the military, even when the General is not angry and you are subordinate and you want to speak you must ask for permission to speak.

Now, this man was in a rage but because of a very special love that God has for him, a servant risk is life and offered him advice.

When the King of kings minds to help you, nothing will stop him.

And I know there is someone for whom this was called today; someone God has made up His mind I AM going to help you and He will do everything to make sure you get the help.

I mean we have several examples we can use.

1Kings 19 verse 1 to 8, Elijah was frustrated and he asked God to kill him.

God said, kill!

I AM not going to kill you; I will feed you because you must reach your goal.

Whatever method God want to use, somebody here will reach his goal.

In John chapter 21 verse 1 to 19, after God, after Jesus Himself had told Peter in Luke 5 (if we back off a little) Luke 5 verse 1to 11, God has told Peter that from now on you will not be fishing for fish, you will be fishing for men.

He forsook all; followed Jesus; Jesus died and he thought that was the end of the matter.

And he said, I am doing my fishing again; he went right back to what God said you will never do again after denying he knew Jesus three times.

But Jesus went after him and met him there and He makes sure he caught nothing that night again to remind of the beginning;

And helped him to catch fish and feed him; and said alright now Peter: do you love Me?

And He asked him three times so that He can confirm three times.

It was that song that says – Beloved that will not let me go.

There is a love of God that can hold you tight, no matter how you want to backslide that love will say no, you are not going.

May God extend that love to you tonight.

I have told you the story.

We held a meeting at the Headquarters, we were very few Pastors then and the man who brought me to Christ in that Pastors’ meeting lied against me before my General Superintendent and my father-in-the Lord believed him.

Everybody in the meeting turned against me.

What is this?

I left the meeting.

On my way to University of Lagos where I was working then and I got to St. Agnes bus stop, there was a traffic light there that stopped me.

As I stopped at the traffic, I was thinking within me: this Christianity! It is what they called the gospel!

I made up my mind.

If I cannot continue forward I can go to where I was coming from.

I made up my mind.

Suddenly God spoke.

He said, Son, what is the problem?

Daddy, You know all this, You were at the meeting.

Oh, so you have been disappointed by those you thought you could trust – the man who brought you to Jesus, you General Superintendent, everybody.

I said, yes.

He said, but have I disappointed you?

I said, no Lord.

I made up my mind from that day onward, no looking back.

So those that think they can distract my attention, those who think they can slow me down, they came too late.

I have already made up my mind, living or dying I belong to Jesus Christ.

Is there anybody like that here at all.

That is one story.

I will tell you another one because these are very serious prayer you are praying tonight.

I went to Obafemi Awolowo University, I think at that time it was still called University of Ife, for a programme.

I finished the programme early in the morning and I was coming back to Lagos.

And if you are coming out of the campus and you are coming back to Lagos, you are to turn right.

As I was approach the gate God spoke to me: at the junction you turn left.

Yes Lord.

I obeyed first and I asked why.

I told my driver we are turning left.

After we turned left, where are we going?

He said, you are going to Akure.

Akure!

I am on my way to Lagos but He is my Commander-in-chief, so I went to Akure.

And I got to Akure and then told me where I was going.

You are going to the house of so and so.

O God!

He knew why He did not tell me before.

Because the one He was sending me to had been in and out of the Redeemed Christian Church of God a couple times;

So, I made up my mind this time is gone, he is gone; no more follow-up.

So He sent me to his house.

I got to his house and he was in the bathroom.

The wife saw me, what are you doing here?

Well, God sent me to go and see your husband.

The wife told him, the G.O is in the sitting room.

He said, what kind of joke is that.

Finally, he came out and saw me.

Why are you here?

I say I don’t know.

God said, I should go and see you.

He opened his mouth; he could hardly close it because he has backslide terribly.

But he said, you mean God still remembered me! Sent you to come and see me!

He said from now on, all the way for Jesus Christ.

He is an elder now and he is seating on the altar here.

Stand on your feet, and lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, don’t let me go, don’t let me go; please don’t let me go.

Don’t let me go; help me all the way, don’t let me go; don’t let me go, don’t let me go, help me all the way, help me all the way; please hold me tight even when everything within me turn away from You, Lord don’t let me go, hold me fast Lord; help me all the way, help me all the way; help me all the way Almighty, please help me all the way; hold fast unto me Lord; help me all the way, help me all the way, don’t let me go; don’t let me go Lord God Almighty no matter how I try to go away from You, don’t let me go, hold me fast; hold me fast. Please Lord, don’t let me go; don’t let me go hold  me fast; hold me fast; please Lord help me all the way, all the way, all the way so that I can finish well, so that I can finish strong; help Lord, hold me fast; hold me fast; hold me fast Lord. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

You will not fall by the way side; you will finish well.

Please be seated.

There are several others we could discuss but because of time let us go to one another important issue here and that is – the role of attention to details.

O thank You Almighty.

The Lord asked me to tell somebody whether the fellow is here or he is just listening anywhere in the world; the Lord said, because you survived June, you will not die.

Thank You Father.

You know there is a saying that the rich also cry – that means you can be wealthy and still have sorrow but the Lord asked me to tell someone here, He said that proverb will never apply to you again.

Thank You Lord.

The Lord asks me to tell someone that you should pay attention and see, beginning from this month your adversary disappearing one by one.

The role of attention to details: When God is talking to you, if your victory is going to be total and permanent, pay attention to details.

Naaman was told – wash in Jordan; not any other river.

Wash seven times, not five, not six, not three but seven.

He deeped himself in Jordan the first time and he came out leper, second time a leper, sixth time  he was still a leper; it was the seventh time that he came out clean.

Deuteronomy 28 that I mentioned earlier on (Deuteronomy 28 verse 1 to 13), it says, if you hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all He commands you – not some, not some – all

Diligent; pay attention to details

Like I told those of us who came for divine encounter, if you look at 2Kings chapter 4 verse 1 to 7, the man of God told the widow: go and borrow empty vessels from your neighbours, borrow not a few; shut the door on yourself and your sons; pour in the oil of your bottle into the pots; set aside that which is full.

Details!

If the widow had borrowed empty vessels and started pouring the oil without shutting the door the oil will not come.

Details! Details!

I pray that the Almighty God will help all of us who are Christians to pay attention to details.

Because many of us are doing things excepting God to respond in a particular way but we miss out on details.

We give our offerings but God says the offering must be given cheerfully.

God loves a cheerful giver.

If you give grudgingly, it is better you do not give at all because if you give grudgingly you will get no result.

He said bring all the tithes into my house – all – It is God who said that not one fellow.

Bring all the tithes into My house.

It is God who said put me first.

Details!

I happened to be a Mathematician so I know the important of details

I am not trying to teach you Mathematics but I know that in a right angle triangle the square of the hypotenuse is equal to sum of the square of other two sides.

That will be difficult for the Yoruba interpreter.

But do you know that Law will not hold if the angle is a little more than ninety degrees or a little less.

Details!

When you want to deal with God, deal with Him all the way.

He is a God of details.

You want to serve Him, serve Him wholehearted.

He said, if you want to be cold, be cold; if you want to be hot, be hot;

He said, if you are lukewarm, He will spit you out of His mouth.

Details

In 2Kings chapter 13 verse 14 to 19, Elisha was about to die, a king came unto him and say haa, my father, my father, what am I going to do now?

You are the one defending this nation.

He said, that is no problem; take arrows, I will put my hand on your hand, shoot.

He shot.

He said, that is arrow of deliverance, you will get deliverance.

Then, he said, take the arrow and begin to smite the ground and this fellow smote the ground three times and stop.

He said, who asked you to stop?

Because you stopped at three then you will win three victories; he says you should have continue about five times or more; you should have waited for me to say stop.

And you know what that stupid king did?

He looked at him and say, my Father you are still alive; I stopped at three! Ehen, you want me to go to five; haa, I won’t even stop at five.

Details!

Because God is a God of details and He is watching everything you are doing.

The Bible says every hair on your head as a number written on it.

That is how detailed God is.

He is interested in you.

Follow Him all the way and He will see to it that your victory is not only absolute but permanent.

I told you before; when I became General Overseer we were very rich.

The total income of the Redeemed Christian Church of God at that time was less than my monthly salary as a lecturer.

By the time we pay all the people that had to be paid there was nothing left for the General Overseer to take.

But then I have been working for years before I retired and then the Government paid me my gratuity.

I say glory be to God. 

Thank God.

Father, thank You for the gratuity.

So, I do I do it?

I thought He was going to say, pay your tithe and then maybe He will even ask me to put some in savings.

He said, divide it into three.

I said yes Lord.

I was wondering what was going to happen.

He said, one-third to this ministry.

I said yes Lord.

Give the second-third to this ministry.

My yes Lord became very very low; I was furiously praying that He will allow me to keep the remaining one-third.

And said, give the remaining one-third to this ministry.

Haa!

But then He spoke and said, Son, I will be your source.

Do what He says; you will never never be defeated.

Do what He says.

Some people see the glory, they do not know the story.

I am telling you, He is God of details.

Stand on your feet and lift your voice to Him and say: Father, the grace to obey You completely give to me today.

Open your mouth and cry unto Him.

The grace to obey You completely, to obey You in details, not casually, to obey You all the way, give me that grace; that is the secret of absolute and permanent victory, obey Him completely. Thank You my Father. Give me the grace to obey You, to obey You completely, to obey You absolutely, to obey You in detail, give me the grace, give me the grace, give me the grace to obey You completely, to obey You absolutely. Thank You Father.

That is a serious prayer; you should pray it because it will determine your future.

The grace to obey You completely, absolutely, to do exactly what You want me to do, the grace to follow through completely with Your instructions; give me that grace so that from today onward I will obey You completely, I will obey You absolutely, I will obey You all the way, give me the grace Lord, give me the grace. Thank You my Father. Glory be to God.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Finally, just one more point, there could be other we will discuss in future.

What do I do so that my victory will remain permanent forever?

My daughter has given you several beautiful points from the life of Esther and from the life of Joseph.

I just want to add one more point from the life of Naaman.

After he received his miracle, his victory, he came back to say thank you.

He returned to Elisha – you can read that one in the same 2Kings chapter 5 from verse 15 to 19.

He said, Sir, I am clean.

The man of God said congratulations.

Haa, please Sir, this is money, cloths, this, that – he came back to say thank you.

Like I told those who came for Divine Encounter, the reason many of us has never had more than one breakthrough is because we have never come back to testify.

We do not come back to say this is what God did; thank You Lord.

We won’t tell others what God did for us.

The elders have a saying and I will say it in Yoruba first before I translate into English.

Wo ni t’Omode ba dupe ore ana, (kilo ma se le?) agba imiran (If a child is grateful for you done for him yesterday, he will receive another)

The same elders…

(Forgive me tonight if you find me going to my mother tongue again and again; it is because the issue tonight is very serious)

…they say in Yoruba: eni ta se lore ti ko dupe, bi gba ti olosa koni leru lo ni (the one who is ungrateful is like an armed robber.)

That is what they said.

If that is to be true, I regret to say there are many armed robbers among Christians.

Many of us cannot even open our mouth to say thank You to God; we do not come back to testify.

He has healed more people that are easy to believe in our midst.

When it is testimony time we want to hear the testimonies of others.

He has destroyed the yoke of bondage in the life of many of us, we won’t talk.

Somebody said I am shy.

Eh en, you are not shy when you had a problem.

The widow that the creditors were coming to, in 2Kings chapter 4 verse 1 to 7, after the miracle of multiplication she came back to Elisha to thank him – this is what happened – she testify.

The mad man of Gadarene in Mark chapter 5 you will read it from verse 1 to 20.

After God drove away the demons he came to meet Jesus and said thank God I am free now, I will go with You everywhere you go.

The Lord said, eh en, go and tell others.

 This fellow Bartimaeus: as soon as God opened his eyes, the Bible says he come and followed Jesus in the way; he did not run away with the miracle.

In Mark chapter 1 verse 40 to 45, when Jesus cleansed that leper, he told the leper: do not tell anyone.

The Leper laughed.

How can I keep quiet?

I was leper now I am clean, I will tell everybody.

A man was here for the Holy Ghost service and then he met his friend

Haa, so and so, you came too?

That one said yes.

You came today?

He said no, I have been coming.

He said, since when?

He said, since four years ago.

And you call yourself my friend!

You are wicked fellow.

Many of us here we got born again because somebody witness to us, somebody told us about Jesus Christ and since then we have not told anyone.

How does the devil get his disciples?

It is through the witness of his converts.

You get to office on Monday morning and your co-worker says, haa, last weekend I met a Baba, this one is serious; from everything I heard about him, he had swallowed the Ifa oracle.

It is the neighbour who will say, when next are you going to him?

You have the Almighty God; you know Him; you know His powers; you know how He can go; you know with Him nothing shall be impossible, but you keep quiet.

You cannot even say thank You.

Thank You Father.

I those who came for the Divine Encounter, a President was resuming office and a lady came to me and said I know the president is your friend.

Would you please speak to him so that he will give me a job?

I say, no problem; I don’t know the woman.

So, I spoke to the president and she was appointed a minister.

Four years passed, another election took place; the president was re-elected.

And the woman came again.

Hey, last time you spoke for me I got the post of a minister.

I said, yes Ma.

Please speak for me again.

I said, four years ago, since four years ago this is first time I am seeing you.

For years ago, you did not even come back to say thank you to God.

Four year passed, you did not even send me a Christmas card to say I know that you are still alive o, Merry Christmas.

I don’t need your money, I am not hungry but can’t you even say thank you to God.

Haa, this time around, every Christmas your card will be beautiful.

I said, I have more cards than I can handle – I am teaching a principle.

He came back to say thank you.

Let me round up with this story and then we are going to pray final prayer.

Thank You Daddy.

Forgive me, I got carried away.

You know it is possible for someone here tonight never to know defeat again.

Who is that fellow?

Because the Lord asked me to tell someone that this time around your joyful expectation shall not fail.

Thank God I have been speaking all along; I have been waiting for my own and finally I got my own now.

So I want to say amen to it before I tell you.

Because Daddy says there is someone here tonight, very soon I will fulfill Psalm 23 verse 5 for you.

For those of you who don’t know Psalm 23 verse  5, it says: thou prepareth a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

If you are the one let me hear you shout hallelujah.

I have told you the story.

I went to conduct Bible Study; I think it was in Ikoyi, in the house of one very big man who happened to be my friend.

And there was this young man there; I don’t know how he managed to get there because it was for big people.

He is very small boy, he had only, I think he had only eleven Petrol Stations – Very small boy

When I finished preaching that night he came to me and says I have never heard that kind of preaching before and he gave me a gift – ten thousand dollars.

He is a small boy – you know small is by comparison.

So I took the money and I say God bless you, next time will be more.

He left the place saying what kind of greedy pastor is this; I gave him this money and he was saying next will be more.

The following year I was back in the same place and he came back to testify.

He said, when you said next time will be more last year, I was almost angry.

But now, between last year and now, by the grace of God the number of my petrol station had increase to hundred and ten.

Then he said thank you again.

I know you want to know what he did this time, I won’t tell you; it is none of your business.

And I said to him, next time will be more.

Why?

Because he testified

All of sudden, God began to open works for him Abroad and he began to buy petrol stations in UK.

I mean, I don’t want to go to all the details.

Learn to say thank you.

Learn to appreciate God.

Thank Him for what He had already done in the past that is when He will do more.

Thank Him for the victory you have already obtained that is why He will make the victory permanent.

Stand on your feet: In the next ten minutes or so, do nothing other than thank God, thank God; thank Him, bless His holy name. Thank Him for what He has done for you; thank Him.

Open your mouth and praise Him.

Give Him glory for what He has done in the past; thank Him, He has done a lot for you, thank Him.

In Jesus mighty name we have given thanks.

May the Almighty God accept your thanks given; may He give you greater things to thank Him about.

Now that you have thanked Him, for the next two/three or four minutes, in every area that you that you are still fighting a battle, talk to God. Say: Father, I must have total victory; I must have total victory tonight.

Talk to Him.

Whether it is in physical area, in the material area, is in the marital area, is in the spiritual area, is in your career – talk to God now – say Lord I have must have complete victory tonight; all round victory; victory in my body, victory in my home, victory in my office, victory in my ministry, victory financially, victory all round, Lord I cry to you tonight, give me victory – total, absolute, complete and permanent.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

God of Host I commit all these Your children into Your hands, before the sun rises Lord, let every one of us sing the song triumph. In every area of our lives my Father and my God, let us sing the song of triumph in such a manner that by the time we wake up tomorrow morning we will think that are we dreaming. Father, let us have total and absolute triumph. Thank You my Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

If you receive that let me hear your amen loud and clear

Thank You Father

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He says, this month I will wipe away your tears.

Daddy says there is someone here today; your own day has come at last.

Thank You Father.

Daddy asks me to tell someone here tonight, it does not matter what the enemy may try, you will never hit the ground.

Father we just want to say thank You. Thank You for the past conventions. Thank You for the mighty testimonies. Thank You for what You have done since this convention began; thank You for Monday, thank You for Tuesday, thank You for Wednesday, thank You for yesterday, thank You for today, thank You in advance for tomorrow; glory be to Your holy name. Tonight Father glorify Your name. All that we are asking is that You glorify Your holy name.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Shake hands with one or two people and say welcome to dominion.

Welcome to dominion.

And then you may please be seated.

Genesis chapter 1 verse 26 to 28…

I won’t be calling you to pray as I continue; I want to lay the foundation so that when you pray tonight, you will be able to pray undisturbed or interrupted until you have dominion.

Genesis 1:26 to 28:

 26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

God created you to have dominion and so if you desire dominion, you are desiring something that is the will of God.

And the Bible says, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us and He will grant our request.

So, let me hear somebody now lift up his or her voice loud and clear and say to God, Father, give me dominion.

I know you tried that we are many here and God says as you have spoken in My hears to so will I do unto you.

Let Him hear you say, Father, give me dominion.

You see, when you read Genesis 27 from verse 30 to 40, you will discover something very interesting there;

Isaac wanted to bless Esua but Jacob came in by trick and got the blessing;

As soon as Isaac finished blessing Jacob, Esau came in and the father discovered I have blessed the wrong fellow.

He said my son, the blessing is gone.

Boy said, it can’t be gone; you have to do something.

He said, I have blessed your brother and he will be blessed.  

Esau said, here today, Papa you have to bless me too.

May I stop at this stage and say in the mighty name of Jesus, all of you who call me Daddy, you shall be blessed.  

The father said, I have already made him your lord.

He said, daddy you have to do something.

The father said, alright, I will give you advice: pursue dominion because when you have dominion, you will break his yoke from off your neck.

Pursue what?

What does that tell you?

It is either you have dominion or you are under yoke – there is no middle way.

You are either head or tail.

You are either above or beneath.

You either have dominion or you are under yoke.

It is either of two and you have to choose one tonight.

Which one do you want?

You better say it as if you mean it.

I am going to explain briefly what do we mean by dominion physically speaking.

I will explain briefly, what do we mean by dominion financially.

I will explain briefly, what do we mean by dominion spiritually.

I will leave the others because of time.

It is good to be healed.

When you read Mark chapter 1 verse 40 to 45 – when a leper was cleansed, he could not keep his mouth shut, he told everybody in the city. 

It is only those who had been sick who will know the value of been healed; particular the one they say it cannot be cured.

I pray for everyone here tonight, it does not matter what the doctor said, you will be healed tonight.

But it is better to be healthy, not to be sick at all.

And then, it is better still when you be the one healing the sick.

In Mark 16, from verse 17 to 18, Jesus said, this sign shall follow them that believe in My name;

And he went down to say, they will lay hand on the sick and they will recover.

And I pray for every one of you, from today onward, not only will you be healthy, when you lay hand on the sick they will recover.

But when your shadow begins to heal the sick, haha, then you have dominion physically.

In Acts chapter 5 verse 14 to 16, the shadow of Peter was healing the sick;

And God can use you at that level.

He has done it before; some of you have seen it in action;

Some of you were there in our very first auditorium when God said to me that there were some people with terrible back problems that for a very long time they were on able to touch their toes

And He asked me to call them out that He wanted to heal them.

I called them out

I thought He will ask me to lay hands on them or slap their back or ask them to lie down and put my foot on their back;

No!

He said, dance round them.

I danced;

I look stupid dancing.

Five minutes later, He asked them to touch their toes.

And they were all healed – everyone of them.

I decree in the Name that is above every other name, from now on, anyone you touched by accident will receive healing in Jesus’ name.

Let me talk about dominion financially:

It is good to be rich.

Don’t let anybody deceived you, poverty is not good; poverty is a destroyer.

That is why the Bible says the destruction of the poor is their poverty.

All of you my children, in the name of Jesus Christ, none of you will die poor.

If anybody tells you poverty is good, ask him, how do you feel when the landlord asks you to get out because you could not pay your rent?

I pray for every one of you my children, you will not die as tenant.

It is good to be rich

Abraham our father was rich.

Genesis 24 from verse 34 to 35, that servant said, I am Abraham servant and God has blessed my master greatly.

Abraham is the father of faith; if God blessed Abraham greatly, it means it is not a terrible thing to be blessed.

The One who blessed Abraham will bless you greatly.

But it is better to be wealthy – Isaac was richer, much richer than his father.

Genesis 26 from verse 12 to 14, the Bible says, Isaac became so rich, the whole nation envied him.

I know a time is coming for someone here when you will be so wealthy, people will be saying – are you the only one serving God.

But it is better than being wealthy to prosper.

Solomon prospered; he was able to offer to God a thousand cows as an offering but he did not stop there.

You begin to have dominion financially when you flourish.

In 2Chronicles chapter 7 verse 5, the same Solomon moved on to offer twenty-two thousands oxen and he was not satisfy with that and he said let me add a couple of thousand of sheep – a hundred and twenty thousand sheep.

I don’t want to tell you how many cows had been slaughtered during this convention to feed the people;

But I can say one thing as my God lives, one of you, even next year will pay for the whole convention.

When do we say you have dominion financially?

When you can do whatever you want to do without looking to anybody for help.

I told two of my boys a funny story not too long ago.

An aunty of mine lost her mother and then because she was very well known, the king of where she was sent a gift to her.

She looked at the gift, I did not beg this king; and then she said I know what I will do.

This is I think around 1968, so I may not remember all the details correctly.

So, she took seven rams, seven he goats, seven turkeys, I cannot remember how many chicken, a hundred tubers of yam, seven big kegs of palm oil, bags of salt; then sent it back to the king.

And told the servant, when you get to the king, greet him and say O king live forever: your daughter said we should give you back your envelope and give you these gifts and tell you with all humility – I can bury my mother.

You see, that level where you will reach that anything at all you want to do, you do not need anybody help – that is when you have financial dominion.

And I pray to the Almighty God for someone here tonight, anytime you want to build a church for God; you just wake up in the morning and tell the contractor, go and build a church there.

Next time you are coming to the convention you will go to any motor company and ask them: how much does a bus cost?

Why?

I need six to carry children to the convention.

If you are the one I am talking to stand on your feet and shout amen.

Thank You Father.

Now, I want to talk to you now about spiritual dominion.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said the pain you feel it is as if somebody is crushing your bone; He asked me to tell you that pain is gone forever.

He also said there is someone here; He said, the one who is trying to choke you in your sleep as already being dealt with.

Spiritual Dominion…

Thank You Father.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said the embargo the enemy placed on your family has been removed.

I want to say amen to this one before I tell you

Because the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said before the end of this year, I will open a door for you that will be so big that you will not need a help of man again.

Now, when we talk about spiritual dominion:

It is good to be delivered

If you ask the mad of Gadara how good it is to be delivered, he will tell you.

You know about him; you read about him in Mark chapter 5.

But it is better never to have been in bondage.

If a man had been mad before, even if he is completely well now; people still look at him with a little bit of suspicion.

But there is something better than never been in bondage to demons and that is when God begin to use you to set captives free – when you speak and demons jump out

But you have spiritual dominion when you get to the level that your handkerchief can cast out demons;

As in Acts chapter 19 verses 11 and 12, from the body of Apostle Paul they brought handkerchief and aprons to the sick; they were healed; disease departed from them and evil spirits went out of them.

I thank God for all the testimonies we have heard about handkerchiefs that were anointed here.

We did not even touch them; we waved our hands and the power of God went into the handkerchiefs.

Some people did not take them serious;

Some people don’t even know where their own are;

Thank God the Just shall live by faith.

I will be praying again on your handkerchief tonight and the Almighty God will do greater things.

But what I want to spend a little more time talking about before you go to pray…

Thank You Father.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, (I think I have the rough idea who the fellow might be but you see it is for somebody else too) He said in your husband’s family men do not live long; He ask me to assure your own sons will live long.

I want to talk to you about comprehensive dominion.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said those who are trying to use you as a scapegoat, will fall into their own trap.

I know it is a night of dominion

Lord asks me to tell someone, the one trying to contaminate your marriage will die prematurely.

Dominion can be on a selective basis;

In other words, somebody could have dominion in one area of live and may not have in another area.

In 2Kings chapter 5, Naaman had dominion in all area of live except physical.

He had money, he was famous, he was a General, when he commands things happen but leprosy held him in bondage.

In 2Kings chapter 4 from verse 8 to 17, the Shunammite woman had dominion in all areas of life but she was barren.

She was rich; she was influential; she did not need anybody to introduce her to anyone but she was barren.

Peter, the one whose shadow was healing the sick, had dominion spiritually

But in Acts chapter 3 verse 1 to 8, he confessed that financially speaking he had no dominion – he said silver and gold have I none.

You know I have been there

I was General Overseer living on this camp and because of two naira I won’t be able to go to Lagos because toll gate then you will pay one naira going, one naira coming.

No two naira and I used to tell my wife: it is because God knows there is going to be accident on the way that is why we cannot go.

There was not going to be any accident on the way; we were just broke.

I pray for you one more time, everything you need to do whatever you want to do receive that dominion now in Jesus’ name.

Now, the point is you can have comprehensive dominion.

God has made provision

I wish we have time, I would have asked them to show you the hymn we sang again that we have been given great dominion by the blood of Jesus over sin;

We have been given great dominion over sickness, over disease;

Provisions have been made by the stripes of Jesus;

We have been given great dominion over Satan and all his yokes;

We have been given great dominion over everything.

I have a friend who had comprehensive dominion, his name was Elisha.

Spiritually he had dominion.

Just one word from him who put an end to curses, death, barrenness…

According to 2Kings chapter 2 verse 19 to 22, he spoke a word and say I heal the water of this city – no more death, no more barrenness  –  and the Bible says the waters were healed according to the word that he spoke.

And I want to speak a word to someone here today; every curse in your family is cancel.

He had dominion financially.

In 2Kings chapter 4 verse 8, the great woman of Shunammite, invited him to come and eat in her house, he told her I don’t need your food.

It is not like some of Evangelist I know who looks for places where they can go in and begin to eat other people food.

This man of God said I am not hungry.

Thank God the Shunammite said I know that but you are not going anywhere until you come to my house to eat.

Naaman came to him and said thank you for healing me of leprosy; I brought a lot of money with me, common, take some.

He said go away with your money I don’t need it.

I want to pray for all my Pastors, every one of you, you will not only have dominion spiritually, you will have dominion financially also.

And I will pray for those of you who are not Pastors yet; in the mighty name of Jesus you will have dominion spiritually and you will have dominion financially.

He had dominion physically.

If you read 2Kings chapter 13 from verse 14 to 21, Elisha was sick only once at the age of a Hundred and twenty.

If you are one hundred and twenty, you have tried; he wanted to go and they said sickness took him.

It was not that he has lost dominion spiritually because even after he died his bones still raise the dead.

I don’t know who has enough faith to receive this one but I am praying for someone tonight – till you see Jesus in glory you will never be sick again.

You can have comprehensive dominion that is what I will want you to pray for tonight.

And all it takes, all it will take you is to surrender completely to the One who controls dominion.

James chapter 4 verse 7 says if you will submit yourself to God, you will resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Meaning what?

If you have God behind you, you will have dominion even over the devil.

I will tell you just one story and we will go and pray.

A king, not too far from here, became a Christian; surrendered his life to Jesus completely.

So he called the people in his town; he said, no worship of idols.

But one idol was very popular in the town – his masquerade will come out

So, Kabiyesi said no more masquerade.

The Priest of the masquerade laughed at him.

We have been doing this thing before your father was born, stop us if you can.

He said no problem; we will know whether you are the one who have dominion in this town or I am the one.

Three days before the masquerade was to come out, the high priest died.

So they postpone the day of the masquerade coming out and appointed a new high priest.

Few days before the new date was to come, the new high priest died.

So the other priest said to the one who was next in command, you get ready and we must have our celebration.

That one said, not me.

They said, why?

He said the God of Kabiyesi will kill me.

Every one standing in the way of your dominion, the God Almighty, the God Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Lord of host, the Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle, we swallow them up.

I am going to give you some minutes to pray; if you like pray it gently, it is up to you but this is a night of dominion.

Thank You Father.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight (and that must be me), He said you need just one more breakthrough so that your joy may full, He said you will get it tonight.

I am going to give you an opportunity to pray maybe for about twenty minutes or so

I want you to go before God and tell Him: I am tired of suffering I want dominion – I want dominion physical, I want dominion financial, I want to dominion spiritual, I want dominion in my marriage, I want dominion in every sphere of my life.

If you want to come to the altar you are welcome.

If you want to kneel down, you can kneel down;

If you want to seat, you can seat;

If you want to stand, you can stand.

Cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, I want dominion. I want dominion and I want it tonight; I want dominion tonight; no more yokes; I don’t want to suffer anymore, I want to have dominion in every area of my life I want to have dominion – physically, financially, spiritually, maritally, socially – I want to have dominion. O Lord God Almighty I want to have dominion; I want to have dominion in every area of my life; I want to have dominion Almighty God; I want to have dominion, I want to have dominion, I want to have dominion Daddy; give me dominion Daddy.

God will give you dominion over the flesh, over enemies known and unknown, over poverty, over demons, over failure, over defeats, over fruitless efforts, over sorrow, over fear, God will give you dominion and the dominion will begin now. Every mountain blocking your way shall be moved into the sea. Before the sun rises tomorrow you will sing a new song. God will turn your enemy to your footstool. It shall be so.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Praise the Lord.

How many of you believed that you have received your own dominion?

Let me hear you shout a really big hallelujah.

Two things more for us to do and then we will be on our way.

First of all we want to say thank you to God for what He had already done.

Thank You Father.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight; He said before the end of the year you are going to have three victories without a fight.

First of all we want to say thank you to God;

And then I am going to anoint your handkerchief afresh;

And then we are going to use the new handkerchief we just anointed to do three things and I will tell you when that time comes.

Right now let us take our thanksgiving offering and get ready to really really dance – the dance of those who are already in dominion, the dance of triumph; because from now on by the special grace of God you will have something to dance about.

So let us take our thanksgiving offering.

As the musicians will give us music, we will dance to the nearest basket and drop our offering.

Let us do this as quickly as possible and then we will come and anoint your handkerchiefs; then we use them for what God want us to do next. 

Take out your handkerchief

I am going to wave my hand; as I do, I trust my Daddy, He will cause the wind of the Holy Spirit to blow and He will saturate every handkerchief lifted to Him with anointing.

If you don’t have a handkerchief, any piece of cloth will do.

Alright

I am going to be praying in spirit and your own is to say amen.

In the name of Jesus ***praying in the Holy Ghost***

Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Now you are going to do three things quickly with that your anointed handkerchief.

Anything you are going to do is based on James chapter 4 verse 7: says, if you submit to God and you will have dominion over the devil;

And when there is war and one side want to surrender, they wave a white flag.

First time you are going to wave this handkerchief now, you are waving to God to say I surrender.

So, wave your handkerchief to the most high God and tell Him I surrender; I surrender everything to You – my past, my present, my future – I surrender all; I surrender all; I surrender everything; I surrender everything I can be, I surrender all; I surrender all; I surrender all; I surrender all.

In Jesus mighty name

If you mean that; if you mean what you just said, now is time to resist the devil.

When you wave this handkerchief the second time, you are telling the devil – clear out of my way; clear out of my way. In the mighty name of Jesus clear out of my way; clear out, clear out, clear out of my way; clear out now. In the mighty name of Jesus, clear out now. Satan get out of my way; I command you in the mighty name of Jesus, clear out of my way; every mountain clear out of my way; every demon clear out of my way; sickness clear out of my way; disease clear out of my way; poverty clear out of my way; failure clear out of my way; defeat clear out of my way; Satan clear out of my way, I have surrendered to God clear out of my way; clear out of my way; clear out of my way. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And then the third one

When Elijah left, he dropped his mantle; Elisha picked it up.

Within a short period of time, all other sons of prophet said: haa, the spirit of Elijah does rest on Elisha.

My faith in the Almighty God; my faith in the God that sent me, you are going to wave the handkerchief the third time and say: in the mighty name of Jesus I receive the mantle of dominion.

Open your mouth and say it.

I receive the mantle of dominion for the rest of my life; I have the mantle of dominion; I have the mantle of dominion; I will dominate, I will not be dominated; I have the mantle of dominion; I receive the mantle of dominion for the rest of my life. Thank You Father. ***praying in the Holy Ghost***. Thank You Lord.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

As you have confessed, so shall it be unto you. From now on when the devil sees you coming the devil we run. Before you get home this weekend, your enemies will have surrendered

And then you may be seated.

Our text tonight for title Silencing Mockers: 1Samuel chapter 2 verse 1 to 10:

1And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the Lord, mine horn is exalted in the Lord: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.

There is none holy as the Lord: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.

Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.

The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded with strength.

They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren hath born seven; and she that hath many children is waxed feeble.

The Lord killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.

The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up.

He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord‘s, and he hath set the world upon them.

He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.

10 The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the Lord shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.

This is going to be a night you will never forget.

But before we proceed to the miracle section of tonight, as usual, I want to talk to those who might be here who are not yet born again, who are not yet children of God.

You see Mockers always end badly.

Those who love to mock God or mock the things of God they always end badly.

In Luke chapter 17 verse 26 to 27, the Lord Jesus Christ said as it was in the days of Noah – people were eating, they were drinking, they were getting married, they were given in marriage – until the flood came and destroyed them all.

When Noah was preparing the Ark that would have brought salvation to the people, they laughed at him.

What is wrong with this old man building a huge boat saying a flood is coming?

What flood?

Because as at that time they had never been rain; where will the flood come from?

They mocked him; they laughed at him.

I am sure you know some people are still mocking today, still laughing when they hear a word of prophesy they thought it is a joke.

I told you at the beginning of the year that the Lord said, get ready for floods

How many of you stll remember?

And now you are hearing of floods in places where if they get two/three rains in a year they use to rejoice; now flood.

Let me give you a hint: it is not over yet.

They mocked Noah: old man if you have nothing else to do, do not bother us; keep on building your toys.

Then, the day of decision came;

Noah, his family, animals, birds, entered into the ark and the Bible said God shut the door.

And then, the rain began to fall.

By the time they came knocking at the door – Noah, open unto us

I am sorry the key has been taken away.

And then in the same Luke chapter 17 verse 28 to 30, the Lord said, as in the day of Lot; again they were eating, they were drinking, they were selling, they were planting, they were building

And when Lot went to tell his in-laws, heard that destruction is coming;

 Some visitor they have told me that destruction is at the door.

Come, let us run for our life

They laughed at him.

And the following day, they were not laughing anymore when the fire began to fall.

In Exodus chapter 12 verse 21 to 29, Moses said to the people – trouble is coming, the angel of death is around the corner; everyone of you kill a lamb, mark your door post with the blood of the lamb

Because when the angel comes back, wherever he sees the blood, he will pass the place over.

Do you know that there are people who said blood! Blood of an animal over my post!

When the night came and the angel of death was passing by, every house, it does not matter who was there – whether Jew or not – where he did not see the blood, he went in and killed.

In Numbers 21 from verse 5 to 9, the children of Israel murmured against God;

Said to Moses what kind of life is this?

All we get for food is manna; everyday manna – manna in the morning, manna in the afternoon, manna in the evening.

God said alright, you so ungrateful; let us give you a little taste of judgment.

And then this serpent came when the heat is like fire

Suddenly the people cried, O we are sorry, we have sinned

And God spoke to Moses, alright, make a serpent like that particular serpent and raise it up

Tell the children of Israel, anyone bitten by this serpent; all they need to do is look up at that serpent you have lifted up and they will be made whole.

Do you know some people still mocked!

We are talking of snake bite; you are talking of looking up to one dry serpent up there.

As many as did not look up died.

Jesus refer to this situation in John chapter 3 verse 14 to 18: as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness so must the Son of man be lifted up.

Look up to Him and you will be saved.

Don’t mock the call to salvation.

Don’t say what are we talking about – born-again, born-again; we have seen so many of them born-again around us;

Nobody is asking you to look at any man           

Look unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.

Don’t joke with sin; sin is a killer

The wages of sin is death.

The Lord is calling on those of you who until now is toying with the issue of salvation.

Mockers always end badly.

You need to run away from sin and come to the Savior.

Don’t believe those who tell you that all will be well if you continue in sin – no such thing.

You cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound, God forbid – that is what the word of God says.

You cannot claim to be a born-again child of God and continue to live a life of sin, it is not done.

The Bible says when you are in Christ, you are a new creature; old things are passed away, behold, all things have become new.

Do not tell me that you are born-again and you still continue to lie; you still continue to cheat; you still continue to fornicate;

There is no born-again fornicator; no born-again adulterer; if you are born-again you are new.

What you used to do, you can do them no more.

If you are born of God, you do not commit sin because the seed of God will be in you; the seed of the Holy One of Israel will be in you.

When I got born-again, everything changed; I could not even tell a white lie.

I could not do anything contrary to the will of God because there was someone living in me that tells me you cannot do it.

I told you by the time I got born-again I was a Lecturer at the University of Lagos and there were official envelops and I wrote a personal letter;

And because of my position in the department, I had envelops available to me.

I wanted to take one of the envelopes to post my letter and the spirit of God says no, these envelops are for official letters not private ones and my hand froze.

That is the salvation we are talking about.

And I said to my Daddy, how much is an envelope?

And He said to me, Son, if it is that cheap go and buy your own.

Do not tell me you are a Christian and you lied and God allows you to get away with it.

Who is deceiving who?

Do not tell me you are born-again and you can still cheat

It does not happen.

Do not tell me you are born-again and you are still keeping all those boy-friends, girl-friends; still doing things contrary to the will of God

It does not happen; if you are born of God the seed comes in you and things become brand new.

So those of you who are here tonight that you know you have not experience genuine salvation;

Because God is going to silence mockers tonight and before the fire begins to fall He will separate those who are His own from those who are not.

If you have not been born-again, you have not felt great sorrow for your sin;

Because repentance really means I acknowledge my sin; I am sad for them; I have made up my mind never to go back again; that is repentance.

Let me tell you my brother and sister no salvation without repentance

So if you are here tonight and you have not given your life to Jesus or you claim you have given your life but He did not change you, you better come now; come and surrender your life to Jesus

Come and cry to Him to please forgive all the evil you have done in the past and give you a brand new beginning.

Come and cry to Him to save your soul and that His blood will wash you clean; that is blood will bring you into the family of God.

I will count from one to ten

Before I say ten, come and stand before me; I will pray for your salvation and then we can proceed from there.

I am counting now:

One,

Those of you in the old arena just go towards the altar, there are people there who will attend to you and my prayer will reach you when it is time to pray.

Two,

You must come with the determination and say bye-bye to life of sin and I want to surrender my life to Jesus Christ and I want to become a child of the Living God; I want people to see me and see Christ in me.

Three,

You must only come if you are sorry for your sins and you want to repent; you want to say no more, no more, no more; Lord just have mercy on me; forgive the sins of the past and give me a new beginning.

Five

Thank you those of you who are clapping; clap as of you are born-again because His word says whatever your hand finds to do you do it with all your might.

Six, seven, eight, nine,

Cry unto Him and say Lord please save my soul, forgive all my sin, change me completely from inside house; do not let me ever go back into sin; be my Lord, be my Saviour and I will serve You for the rest of my life.

Cry unto Him; cry unto Him

And the rest of us please let us stretch our hands to our new brothers and sisters and intercede for them that the One who saved our souls will save their own souls also. Let us pray for them brethren; intercede for them; let us cry to God for them that every one of them will get genuine salvation tonight that they will be saved thoroughly, everything will become new for them that they will not be able to go back to their way of sin after tonight. Please intercede for them. Pray brethren.

And those of you who are coming hurry up because I want to pray for salvation now; I want to call on my God, the One who saved my soul to save your soul also. If you are coming, hurry up. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Saviour I want to say thank You. Thank You for Your word and thank You for these people who have come forward to surrendered their lives to You. Daddy You promised that whosoever will come unto You, You will no wise cast out – they have come to You now Father, please receive them in Jesus’ name. They have come to You now for salvation my Father and my God, please save their souls in Jesus’ name; let Your blood, that powerful blood, wash away their sins in Jesus’ name; write their name in the Book of Life; let them become brand new creature for You and let them become member of the family of God. Father, I pray they will never go back into the world. From now on, anytime they call on You, Father, please answer them by fire.  Thank You Almighty God.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Now, those of you who have come forward, let me hear shout hallelujah

I rejoice with you

From now by the grace I will be praying for you

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

The Counselors will give you card which you will fill quickly and then you can return it to them before you return to your sit.

Now we go to part B of our programme: Silencing Mockers.

The reasons why your mockers are in trouble is simply because of your association with God.

1John chapter 4 verse 4 says: ye are of God little children and I have overcome them: why? Because greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.

You see, the Bible teaches that if you are a true child of God, anyone who touches you is touching God; anyone who persecutes you is persecuting God.

Acts chapter 9 verse 1 to 5: Saul of Tarsus was going to Damascus; he was going with intention of dealing with Christians, he met the Lord on the way.

I have good news for someone today: all those who have the intention of persecuting you, they will meet the Lord on the way.

Now, when he met the Lord on the way and he fell on the sport; a voice spoke to him from heaven: Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?

He said who are you?

Who am I persecuting?

Jesus said Jesus

You are persecuting My children that means you are persecuting Me.

The Bible says in Isaiah 63 verse 8 and 9 that whenever the children of God are afflicted He shares in the affliction;

In all their afflictions, He was afflicted – that’s what the Bible says.

In Proverbs chapter 17 verse 5, the Bible says he who mocked the poor, reproaches his maker.

So whenever someone is mocking you, he is actually reproaching God and God will answer the fellow.

As a matter of fact Psalm 115 verse 1 to 3 made it clear: whenever someone says where is your God? God will answer and tell him: I AM in heaven and I do as I please.

So let us look at this case of fruitlessness because this month is a special month for those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb.

And I thank God for the testimonies we have heard;

I am sure those of you who are here last month you saw the thousands of people who are formerly barren who brought their children and we have seen more tonight.

There will always be people who will want to mock you if by the time you are suppose to bring forth you have not brought forth.

1Samuel chapter 1 verse 1 to 6 – we have the case of Hannah; the other wife in the house was giving her a hell of a time

What are you doing in my husband house; eating our food and not producing children?

In Genesis chapter 16 verse 1 to 4, the Bible told us that it was even Sarah who gave her maid to her husband;

Say, I have not been able to conceive, go in to my maid and let us get child through her.

The Bible said as soon as the maid conceived she began to mock her mistress.

For those who are mocking your fruitlessness…

I would have told you before when we talk about barrenness, we are not just talking about the fruit of the womb, we are also talking about failure in other areas of life.

When you make efforts and there is nothing to show for it, they say you are barren.

When anybody begins to mock your fruitlessness, they are mocking God; and they are mocking the Commander of wombs.

Genesis chapter 1 verse 26 or let us just take verse 28, when God made man and woman after He blessed them, He commanded them, be fruitful – It’s a command of the womb of the woman – produce

And in the Name that is above every other name your womb will obey the commandment of God.

He spoke to one woman; commanded one womb and suddenly the human race begin to multiply

The Bible says by the time we get to Genesis chapter 6 verse 1: He said, men multiplied from one womb.

After the flood and there was only one family saved, God again said to Noah and his family be fruitful.

And as soon as He said that they began to multiply again; as a matter of fact, the whole world today came from that same single family.

When they mocked Job for being barren, they are mocking the One who can close and can open.

In Genesis 29 verse 31, the Bible said when the Almighty God saw that Leah was hated and Rachael was loved;

He said well, let us show you this is not the way it should be done

He opened the womb of Leah and closed the womb of Rachael.

He can close but He can also open.

In Genesis chapter 30 verse 22 to 23, the Bible said God remembered Rachael and open her womb.

Almighty God will remember someone here today.

The Bible says in Revelation chapter 3 verse 7 that He has the keys of David and when He opens no man can shut; when He shut, no man can open.

Tonight, I am going to be brief as possible because I want you to pray with all your heart.

I am going to ask you to pray fire down on your mockers.

A story was told of a woman:

In those days when a woman’s pad was not disposable like we have today; and a woman as special piece of cloth that she uses every month.

And there was this young lady, just married and discovered that are menstrual pad disappeared.

She did not know that it was the mother-in-law who took it away and got it charmed.

Shortly after she couldn’t find the pad, she find out she could no longer menstruate.

Of course she thought maybe I am pregnant;

But she discovered she was not pregnant and she was not menstruating – young lady.

And one day, she came in contact with a man of God and they prayed.

And it was in those days when people use lantern for light.

Her mother-in-law wanted to light lantern (you know this kerosene lantern) and somehow the lantern fell and there was light fire

And what got burnt was the menstrual pad that the mother-in-law has stolen and used for a charm.

The following day the lady began to menstruate; nine month later the baby began to arrive.

I want you to stand on your feet and lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, anything blocking my way to fruitfulness, send down Your fire tonight and burn it off; burn it off; burn it off.

Anything blocking my way to fruitfulness my Father and my God send down Your fire tonight and burn it off. Anything whatsoever that may be hindering my fruitfulness send down Your fire Lord and burn it off; send down Your fire; send down Your fire; send down Your fire; whatever it is that is blocking my way to fruitfulness send down Your fire and burn it off; You are the Consuming fire, let Your fire fall and consume everything standing in my way to fruitfulness; You commanded me to be fruitful, You commanded me to multiply, I want to obey You, whatever is standing between me and fruitfulness, tonight Lord send down Your fire and just burn it off; burn it off; burn it off; send down Your consuming fire and consume everything, everything standing between me and fruitfulness; Lord God Almighty send down Your fire. And if you have a relation that is not here pray that prayer for that fellow – who is considered barren – my relation somewhere is considered barren; anything standing between my loved ones and fruitfulness Lord send down Your fire tonight and burn it off, and burn it off. Thank You my Father. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

But then at times they will say to you that the problem with you, the problem why you are not being fruitful is physical, something biological; they will say the womb is malfunctioning that is why you have miscarriages.

They will say your womb is incapable that is why occasionally some people give birth to still birth.

They have all manners of names.

You heard one testimony tonight: Someone they said because of this and that can never have a child.

Next time you hear that and please do not misunderstand me; God bless Doctors, they are wonderful people and they speak according to what they know.

Science says when conditions are like this, this fellow can never have a child

Next time you hear that let your reaction be: no Doctor is my Lord; it was not science that created me, it was God.

And according to Mark 7 verse 37 He has done everything well.

In Genesis chapter 1 verse 31, when He finished creating everything: He said behold they were very good.

Psalm 139 verse 14 says: I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

If you are here and you are trusting God for the fruit of the womb and you have been told that you cannot have a child lay your hand on your stomach and say it loud and clear: my womb is wonderfully made and my creator does not make mistake.

Even if there is anything wrong with you biologically God can correct it.

In John chapter 9 verse 1 to 7, in the story of the man who was born blind:

The Bible says Jesus spit on the ground and made some mud, put where the eyes supposed to be and told him to go and wash.

He washed and came back clean.

He went through the process of creation because we were made from the dust of the earth; to show that He can recreate even when something is incorrect.

In Acts chapter 3 verse 1 to 8, the Lame man by the beautiful gate was born lame;

A day came, Almighty God step into the situation and corrected everything.

And when He wants to do it, He does it in an instant.

In John chapter 5 verse 2 to 9, the Bible spoke of a man who have been sick for thirty-eight years; in an instant Almighty God changed everything.

You have heard several testimonies and your own will not be different.

You have heard the testimony of the lady for example who was considered barren; had gone everywhere; until finally a Professor of Gynaecologist told her: you do not even have ovary.

Woman you have no ovary, how can you ever be pregnant?

And when the husband told her this is what the doctor said.

The woman said well, in that case let me just go home and eat and die.

The husband said no, we have heard the Doctor’s report, let us go to Redemption camp let us come and hear the Lord’s report.

I decree tonight that every report contrary to your fruitfulness will be completely wiped out.

She came, it was when we are in the first auditorium – we were few then; all of us will be about ten thousand at the convention – and I was laying hands on the people: all those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb came forward and I was laying hand on them.

I remembered her case especially because I laid hand on her, she fell under the anointing and she was on the ground for hours;

It was at night, we thought maybe she was just trying to use the opportunity to sleep;

We did not know God was performing an operation, by the time she came the following year, she came with her baby.

In the Name that is above every other name when you come next year you will come with your baby.

You have heard tonight of a lady who said I attended a programme and I sat where Daddy G.O sat – you have heard several of that.

You will remember a case of a woman that they told she had no womb; she had nothing; nothing reproductive in her.

And then we went and held a programme somewhere and then after we finished some people were struggling to seat on my chair and this woman did nothing;

She went and knelt down by my wife’s chair and prayed a prayer:

God the woman who sat here does not need her womb anymore; she does not need tube, she does not need ovary; transfer her own to me.

You have heard the testimony before

By the time she was sharing the testimony, she already had two children.

I want you to stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God tonight and say: Father, whatever that is imperfect in my system, correct or replace.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

If there is anything imperfect in my system, either You correct it or You replace; I know You are able to do whatever is imperfect in my system from the top of my head to the sole of my feet; Father, either You correct it or You replace it, do it tonight Lord; I know You can do it, You have done it before, You have done it again and again, do it again tonight, do it again tonight, do it again tonight, do it again tonight. Whatever is imperfect in my system, anything imperfect in my system, it is either You correct or You replace; Lord I know You can do it, You have done it before, do it again tonight, do it for me, do it for me, do  it for me, do it for me Lord. Thank You Jesus. If it something imperfect in me – biologically or physically- whatever it is Lord, it is either you do it Lord or You replace it; just do it for me Lord because You are my creator; I was not created by science, I was not created by any doctor, You created me, do not let science mock You, You are the Almighty God; whatever is wrong with me Lord God Almighty, whatever is imperfect in me, repair or replace. Thank You my Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please let us be seated.

But then they may say no no your case is not biological and nothing wrong with you physical.

And I am sure many of you have had cases like that; you go to the hospital, they check everything and say you are fine; we cannot see the reason why you should not conceive; everything is working perfectly.

So they say your case is spiritual and there is a possibility you know like in Exodus chapter 5 verse 1 to 2: when Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, they said, the Lord said let my people go that they may serve God

Pharaoh said who is the Lord, I don’t know Him, I am not going to let Israel go.

There might be curses holding you in bondage: spiritual husband; spiritual wife; evil in-laws or a curse or an evil covenant – they are spiritual curses for barrenness.

The point is: even these evil forces that may want to stand between you and fruitfulness are merely mocking the Lord of host

Because according to Psalm 24 verse 7 to 10: when the King of glory wants to come, all doors must lift their heads.

Anytime any force mocks God, God response.

In Daniel 3 verse 13 to 30, Nebuchadnezzar said who is that God that can deliver you from my hand?

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego answered him: it is not between us and you; it is between you and our God and God showed him.

If there evil forces trying to hinder fruitful the Lord of host will deal with them tonight.

Because Philippians chapter 2 verse 9 to 11 says at the mention of the name of Jesus all knees must bow;

It does not matter how thick the darkness; and I know what I am talking about; I have had to deal with some of these forces of darkness one on one on many occasions.

It does not matter how thick the darkness, the word of God says the light shine in darkness and darkness cannot overcome it.

Every force of darkness surrounding you will be put to fly in Jesus’ name.

I can tell you several stories, I mean I can remind you of several testimonies

Oh thank You Father.

The Lord says there is someone here and Doctor told you specifically that your womb is in a mess; the Lord asks me to tell you, I will replace that womb.

You remember the story of one of our sisters who was barren and they have done everything;

Until one day somebody called the husband aside and said stop worrying yourself, stop wasting your money, your wife will never have a child because we have taken her womb away.

I know science does not understand what that one mean.

Thank You Father.

I want to say amen to this even before I tell you

Because the Almighty God said your number one enemy will receive a visit from My angel tonight.

I am just trying to think which of the testimonies to tell you.          

Suddenly they called this man aside and said sorry we have taken the womb of your wife and she is never going to have a child.

And then we held a meeting like this and the word of God came that there is someone here they said you are never going to have a child but God say you are going to have a set of twin

And the woman say glory be to God that must be me;

And that will be you too

And the Doctors have examine them again and again for years; spent a lot of money

And one day she went to see the Doctor and the Doctor said haa, I do not know what is happening but you are pregnant, there is a child here

And the lady said to the Doctor: no, no, not a child; the word of God said a set of twins.

The Doctor said what I can see here is a child.

Couple of months later she went for the normal something, the Doctor said I can see two now.

And then the time came for her to deliver and because the husband said I don’t want to take risk just take out the children by Caesarean section operation and then tie the womb, just two will be enough.

So they put the woman to sleep; when she woke she saw everybody looking at her as if somebody who came from mars;

And she said what is happening; where are my children?

Your children her okay, let the doctor come.

And then the Doctor came

She said what is the problem?

The Doctor said I have performed more than three thousand operations but this is the first time I have delivered a set of twins and there is no womb.

A set of twins and no womb!

I am talking about the Almighty here tonight

I want you to stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty: Every evil force standing between me and fruitfulness, Lord of host, dismiss them all.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty.

Every evil force standing between me and fruitfulness, Lord of host, dismiss them all; everyone of them, everyone of them, everyone of them; every evil force that I maybe contending with – they say there is nothing wrong with me physically, they say I am okay natural but yet I am barren; every evil force that maybe responsible for my barrenness, Daddy, deal with it tonight, deal with it tonight. Every evil force standing between me and my fruitfulness, You are the Lord of host, deal with them tonight, deal with them tonight. Thank You my Father. Every evil force, in any force whatsoever, it might be a curse, it might be an evil covenant, it might be demons, spiritual husband, spiritual wife, whatever evil force that might be responsible for my lack of fruitfulness, deal with it tonight Lord, deal with it tonight. Every evil force standing between and fruitfulness, Lord of host, dismiss them all, dismiss them all. Thank You Father. Thank You Lord. Every evil force standing between me and fruitfulness my Father and my God dismiss tonight, dismiss tonight, dismiss tonight.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

And then there are cases that humanly speaking will be considered hopeless – too old; too late; already passed the age of fruitfulness.

Anytime you hear anybody saying something like that to you, just know that they are mocking your God.

Why?

Because your God is the Almighty

Psalm 91 verse 1 says ye that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Almighty means the One who has all might.

He asked a question; your God asked a question in Jeremiah 32 verse 27: He said, I AM the God of all flesh, is there anything too hard for Me?

We are not talking about man; we are not talking about medicine; we are not talking about science, we are talking about the Almighty.

They say you are too old;

What about Sarah in Genesis chapter 21:9 to 14, she was already ninety years old;

She should have retired from child’s bearing from forty years if not more

But God spoke a word and suddenly what was old became new.

They may say your case is too late

Have they forgotten?

John 11 verse 39 to 44: Lazarus had been dead four days; the sister said it was too late.

It might be too for man, not too late for God; not too late for God – what is dead He can bring back to life

Ezekiel 37 verse 1 to 10 said clearly He can bring dry bones back to life.

I mean, He asked a Prophet, a Prophet is supposed to be a man who is very close to God; Ezekiel can these bones live?

Ezekiel said this is beyond my faith.

Even if your case is defile the faith of your Pastor put your trust in God He is still the Almighty.

Too old, too late, impossible situation – the word impossible is not in the dictionary of God: for with God nothing shall be impossible.

Some of you, at least the older ones will remember:

This young boy, young man rather, he was born with one testicle and then the parent trying to help…

Thank You Almighty

Glory be to God.

The Lord said there is someone here today, He said the source of your problem is envy. He said relax I will take care of the situation.

Oh thank You Jesus.

This one is for me because it is completely out of the bloom it has nothing to do with what we are discussing.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said attempt to kill you will backfire.

I hope your enemies can hear that.

Backfire means the people who fired will pay with their own lives.

So there was this young man who was born with a testicle and the parent trying to help him took him to a herbalist who in the process of helping him destroys the only one.

And so the boy grew up without any testicle at all

Then we held a programme at road park Yaba but somehow the word of God came that God was distributing spare parts and the boy grabbed it.

Three or four months later the boy came to visit me in my office at Ebute metta and he came with his wife:

He said Sir, after the word came two testicles just came out of nowhere; the wife was pregnant.

So when he wants to show me the testicle I said do not worry I can see the sign.

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

I want you to stand on your feet; I want you to pray this prayer with all your heart and say: Father, You are my hope of glory, all those who say it is too late for me surprise them.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

You are my hope of glory, all those who say my own is too late that there is no hope for me, surprise them, surprise them You are my hope of glory Lord; show them that out of the hopeless situation You can still bring out glory; You are my hope of glory Daddy; You are my hope of glory; You are my hope of glory; You are my hope of glory; You are my hope of glory. Thank You Jesus. You are my hope of glory; all those who say it is too late for me, all those who say there is no hope for me, surprise them, Lord surprise them; surprise them; surprise them because You are my hope of glory; they say it is too late, they say there is no hope for me, show them, show them; show them. Thank You Father. By this time next year let them see that You are the Hope of the hopeless, show them, show them, show them. Thank You Father. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Now, let us go on a broader note; let us go beyond fruit of the womb: Success in your business; success in your career; success in your academic pursuit

Those who mock your fruitless efforts either in your business, in your career academic pursuit etc, they are mocking the Great Enabler.

Because it is true there are many of us who have worked hard and have nothing to show for it and so people mocked us.

The reason why many people who will have gone back home to their villages and become very good farmers;

The reason they cannot go back is because people will say you have gone for twenty years, what have you brought back?

When I travelled abroad I see people there and I tried to counsel them: go back home

They find it difficult to take my advice.

Because I have seen Doctors, Medical Doctor who left here for America, looking for greener pastures and they get there and they tell them: we are not doubting how great your University is but you want to practice Medicine here, you have to do this thing again.

You find Doctors becoming people who will be distributing pizza;

Seeing Bank Managers who left from one nation or the other to go and become night guards.

Go home!

And they say they will ask you have gone all this years, what have you brought back?

All those who have been mocking your failure, the Almighty God will silence them tonight.

In Luke chapter 5 verse 1 to 7, Peter fished all night, he was hardworking but the Bible said he caught nothing.

It is possible to work hard and have nothing to show forth.

But when the great Enabler stepped in, when Jesus moved in and he had to call people to come and help him to carry the fish; nobody could mock him anymore.

In Philippians 4 verse 13, the Bible says I can do all things through Christ who strengthened me.

In Isaiah chapter 40…

Thank You Father.

I don’t know who this one is for but the Lord said the one who lied against you will become your servant.

In Isaiah chapter 40 verse 28 to 31, the Bible says God give strength to the weak and they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.

May I decree to somebody that from today onward you will never fail again.

Those who say you have worked and worked and there is nothing to show for it, they have forgetting that your father is the owner of all

Psalm 24 verse 1 made it clear: the earth is the Lord and fullness thereof.

Haggai chapter 2 verse 8 says even silver and gold belong to Him.

Those who say you cannot succeed God will give them a surprise.

I have told you this story before:

One of my children came to me and says Daddy I want to build house.

I said wonderful

He said but I want you to keep it secret; keep it secret; do not tell my parent until the house is built.

I said fine, I can keep a secret.

He built the house and when the house was ready he said send for my parent

Tell them: I want you to escort me to somewhere.

I did as I was instructed.

We got to the house; we dedicated the house;

When we finished dedicating the house, he signal to me and said tell my parent this is their house.

I turned to the parent and said this is their house.

They said how can it be our house; we did not build a house.

Oh, it is built for you by this boy.

The parents did not know what to do whether to cry for joy or to cry for pain.

It was earlier they had spoken to that boy because he was not doing as well as his younger ones academically.

They had said to him that: you! You cannot amount to anything.

The one they said he cannot amount to anything build a house for them

You can understand.

I want you to stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, those who say I won’t reach the top, silence them.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

All those who said that I will not reach the top in anyway whatsoever silence them Lord; silence them; silence them; those who say I won’t reach the top, those who say there is no way for me that I cannot make it, Daddy, silence them; silence them; silence them. All those who said I cannot make it in life, my Father and my God, all those who are mocking my destiny, those who looked at me and they have concluded this is how far you can go, silence them Lord, show them that they are not the Almighty but You are; silence them Lord. Thank You my Daddy. Silence them. Those who said I won’t make, those who said I can never become what You plan for me to be; those who said I cannot reach the top, silence them Lord; because You are the One they are mocking, You are the One they are mocking, silence them Lord. If they say I can never have a child, give me a set of twins to silence them; if they say I can never prosper put me in a situation that I will show them that my Almighty God controls the heaven and the earth. If they say my ministry will not prosper silence them Lord and You know how to do it by breakthroughs, signs, wonders; silence them Lord. Thank You my Father. All those who want to limit me, who want to say how far you can go, no further, silence them, silence them Lord. Thank You Almighty God.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated

I want to close now because we still have some things we want to do tonight.

I want to close with an appeal to you, do not mock your maker.

Because when you begin to doubt Him, you are mocking Him.

2Corinthians chapter 1verse 20 says His promises in Christ are yea and in Him Amen.

If God had made a promise, He will fulfill it.

Even if that promise seems to you like a joke, He will fulfill it.

I say He will fulfill it.

In 2Kings chapter 4 verse 8 to 17, Elisha said to the Shunammite woman: nine month from now you will be carrying a baby boy.

The Shunammite woman said, man of God do not deceive me.

Do not doubt your God.

Once He has spoken, it is done.

Psalm 33 verse 8 and 9: He said the whole earth should fear before God;

Why?

Because He speaks and it is done

I am a living example when God speaks it is done.

I was living in a room in Mushin, you know it

I was praying for boys-quarters in Mushin when He spoke to me: Son, do not ask Me for a house, I have decided to build you a city.

It did not make sense.

But when He speaks it is done.

When He speaks it is done; don’t ever doubt Him.

I told you again and again, you know my story.

I want to encourage you tonight, stop doubting God.

I have told you way back in 1961 I gave a gift to a prophet – not much, the little I had I gave to him – we were living the same house

And he said, thus saith the Lord: one day you will be going to Abroad like people go to the market.

What he is talking about?

Those days when somebody goes abroad in my village, when the man returns the whole village will dance to welcome him.

By the time he was talking I have never been to Ikeja.

Today, I almost wish that his prophesy was qualified.

Don’t doubt God; don’t doubt God.

The God who said to my-father-in-the-Lord, an illiterate, through you I AM going to build church that will go round the world.

How can you say that to somebody who cannot even write his name?

Today, the Redeemed Christian Church of God is in One Hundred and ninety-seven nations of the world (197).

Because when God speaks it is done.

I was talking to my children, those who are graduating; I said dream big, let your dream be so big that it will take only God to fulfill it.

I told them one of my dreams; the dream I have already shared with some of the Pastors here.

I told them that a day is coming when the governing council of this church want to hold a meeting, they will hold the meeting on the moon.

I know you will say that is crazy.

Wait and see.

What do I say?

So on the basis of that; I am saying to those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb get ready for twins, triplet, four at a go.

And I am saying to those of you that the world is looking down saying you cannot become anybody;

When they are talking of people succeeding, do you think they are talking about you?

In the Name that is above every other name, all those who said so, God will silence them.

So we are going to do some things now;

Later on tonight we are going to lay hands on every one of you, every one of you.

But the laying of hands is in agreement; agreement with whatever you believed God for.

Please do not believe God for something small tonight; believe Him for something mighty.

First, the altar is open; you come and talk to God yourself.

All the prayer you are going to pray tonight is just about ten or fifteen minutes because after that we are going to lay hands on you in agreement.

You are just going to cry to the Almighty God: Father, silence my mockers; silence my mockers; silence my mockers – physically, materially, financially, spiritually; academically, silence my mockers.

Almighty God, silence my mockers; silence my mockers Lord, show the world that You are the Almighty, silence my mockers; silence my mockers; all those who have written me off, all those who said I won’t become anything, silence my mockers; all those who said it is already too late for me my Father and my God, silence my mockers; silence my mockers Daddy; silence my mockers my Lord and my Saviour; silence my mockers; silence them Lord.

Thank You Jesus.

Thank You Almighty God.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

The Lord of host will answer your prayers. He will silence all your mockers. All those who have been mocking your maker will get surprise tonight. And those who say you will not make it, God will silence them. So shall it be.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Praise the Lord.

               OCTOBER HOLY GHOST SERVICE

                      THEME: THE INDOMITABLE

                              October 5th, 2018.

Thank You for January, thank You for February, thank You for March, thank You for April, thank You for May, thank You for June, thank You for July, thank You for August, thank You for September, thank You for October, Father, please accept our thanks in Jesus’ name. Tonight, in the only way You can do it, arise for all Your children and make them indomitable; don’t let them never know failure again; don’t let them ever know defeat again; in Your own miraculous way help them to reach their goal. In all over the world where they are listening to us now my Father and my God, in the lives of all Your children particularly the youth and the young adults, Father do something new; and please Lord have mercy on our nation.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Shake hand with one or two people and say good evening God bless you;

And then you may please be seated.

In the past we have discovered that almost invariably the preacher from the North sets things on fire;

And I have always felt maybe it is because they are in the North.

 You cannot be in the North and be cold – it is not possible; which is why we transfer our Pastors by the time you have spent four years in the South, we send you to the North – go and heat up again before we recirculate.

But tonight if I were to do things my own way alone, after that gentleman preaches, we will just go home.

I started trying to take notes before I discover he was not preaching he was bringing a message directly from the throne of heaven.

When he made his altar call for those who are recommitting themselves to becoming addicted soul winners;

You probably heard him say Daddy come and pray for us; I just waved to him: my son, I need prayers too.

Oh yes I go round the world winning souls; I need prayers because quite a few of my children do not seem to catch the fire.

You see, fire of some people seem to be going out.

There were some people who used to burn and somehow fire of Evangelism seems to be dying down.

One of the guests on dove, one of their programmes, was speaking and he said something clearly that I have been agitating mind for awhile.

What was it he said?

He said in the past our hunger was centered around the man that God will use – a man God uses.

So we are hungry we want to be the man that God will use; we want to learn; what will it take for God to use me? What is the price I have to pay for God to say I will use this boy?

But today, things have change

Now, people are looking for a God that man will use.

I was watching and tears came to my eyes.

Because in those days we pray: Almighty God, make me a vessel unto honour even it is going to cost my life; at least it would have been a life with a purpose.

We are willing to surrender all.

We I came into full time ministry; you don’t become Head of Department of Mathematics in a University and let that go to come and become a Pastor of a church unknown;

If you do not see it as answer to a prayer: God use me.

Today, listening to the prayers:

God promote me;

God heal me;

God give me breakthrough;

God give me a wife;

God …

In those days we were even afraid those of us who were not married were afraid to go to the Pastor to say I have found the fellow I will marry.

Because this young man quoted a passage that was common to us then: considering the terror of the Lord we persuade men…

We saw that the world was going to hell and we wanted to be use tools to rescue some.

God use me!

We heard stories of couple, just married; missionary who came to Africa and saw a Colony of a lepers surrounded by a wall;

And they got to the gate and asked the gateman: the people inside there as anyone preached the gospel to them?

The gateman said, who will go in there?

Anyone who goes in there does not come out.

Haa, we will love to go inside and preached to them.

The gateman said, you did not hear me?

We throw food over the wall to them.

When we open this gate, anyone who goes in there does not come out.

And the couple newly married but we want to go and preach the gospel to them.

The gateman said, if I open the gate for you, you are not coming back.

The husband looked at the wife: my dear what did you say?

She said, all that the Lord said is go; He did not say anything about coming back.

Of course the gateman open the door and they went in.

We heard in those days stories; true stories of a missionary preaching the gospel in a village Africa and then he asked: are there other villages?

They said yes we have, there is another.

But there are lions on the way and the way the lions are roaring they are hungry;

And the lady (it was a lady), the lady said I must go and preach the gospel to the people there too.

Haa!

The lions are on the way, I must go.

One old man who as just given his life to Jesus Christ said alright if you must go then I will go with you.

And the missionary looked at him and said you; you cannot even defend yourself talk less of defending me.

The old man said you don’t understand.

Lions don’t kill except they are hungry;

I will go ahead of you, the will kill me and while they are eating me you will be able to go.

We heard stories, stories.

We heard the story of a woman in Accra Ghana when it used to be Gold Coast, very poor woman, gives her life to Jesus and everyday when the Evangelist is passing the offering plate she had nothing to give.

Jesus did so much for me and there is nothing I am going to do for Him!

So one day the Evangelist was passing the plate and the woman dropped a gold coin into the plate.

The Evangelist say hey hey come, you have given your life to Jesus that means you are not going to steal anymore.

She said yes I know that.

Where do you get the money from?

Oh I did not steal, I sold myself, I am a slave now to somebody – this is the money he paid.

If Jesus gave Himself for me, I should be able to give myself to Him.

In those days we thought only of the man that God will use.

So when I gave my life to Jesus Christ and I became the fulltime pastor, I open the doors for my children to follow my example.

The first one to follow; as far as I could remember is Pastor Odeyemi, he too resigned his job – if you can do it, I can do it.

It was not long after then it was Pastor Daramola and the quite a few others.

We are ready to go anywhere, anywhere!

It does not matter the hardship, we could not careless

But my joy was that at long last is that God is using me.

Now people don’t want to go except they first of all check is there electricity in that place; will I have a fridge; will I have a colour television; will they buy me a car?

And yet God said, my Daddy said to my hearing and I told you at the beginning of the year: the countdown to the end has started.

How many of you will remember?

Remember I said that to you.

I am not a prophet, I am just a pastor but I hear from God once in awhile.

The same time that I told you that God said that the flood this year will be massive flood.

And I told you last month from this altar, the flood is not over yet.

How many of you will remember that of last month if you don’t remember that of January.

The same One who told me that is the same One who told me that the countdown to the end has started.

And yet we are at ease in Zion.

We could not care less;

If my neighbour wants to go to hell let him go.

It was because we were determined to be vessels unto honour in the hand of God that is why you found us in Libya; in other places that you think people must be crazy to God there;

That is why you could find my son in Papua New Guinea.

You want to know where Papua New Guinea is?

When you get to Australia, you will still travel six and half hour by air; we could not care less;

We want to go anywhere, anywhere because we want to be vessel unto honour in God’s hands and so we wanted.

My sister came to visit me of blessed memory when I have just moved to the camp

For your information in case I have not told you before, the first bed I slept on in this camp, I made it myself.

When a Mathematician makes a bed, you know the kind of bed that it will be.

She said this is where you live now?

I said yes Ma.

Because she knew where I was and now I am in God, fulltime. 

No electricity – who cares;

Living with snakes and pythons – who cares;

As long as I am vessel unto honour in His hand.

Forgive me if I don’t preach any long sermon tonight;

My sermon is already in the song that you sang:

I am moving forward, no one can stop me because the wind of God is blowing for me.

I am going up, no one can stop because the Spirit of God is residing in me.

I am free, nobody can cage me

Why?

My friend Lord Jesus Christ has the keys of David

You put me in prison, He will open the door.

Reaching the top, I am not going to stop before I reach the top

Why?

Because the One who is promoting me has everlasting arms

It is already in the song.

And like that young man told you, I told them yesterday when I spoke to the youth in the old auditorium, you cannot kill a dead man because he is already dead.

The Bible says we are dead and our life is hid in Christ.

You cannot kill me

If I die it is because my time has come.

When my time comes I will go.

When my time has not come, nobody can kill me.

Are you afraid to step out and risk your life for Jesus?

I was talking to some of my children abroad;

They are living in comfort; it is not their fault, everywhere there is comfort.

I mean prisoners there have colour television, so you can imagine what is going on outside.

I said I am not surprise if you are cold, if your Christianity is lukewarm I am not surprised.

But I still know; I still have some of my children, I can still mention some, I can still give just one example;

This one was not in the news; that is not the kind of news they want to talk about.

Book Haran went to visit one of my Pastors, they wanted to kill him but he wasn’t home, the wife was there and the wife just had a set of twins.

They said we will leave a message for your husband:

In the presence of the mother they slaughter the twins.

I heard about it.

I said to my son, let me bring you to the south now, you have already paid your dues.

You know what he said?

Daddy you taught us never to turn our back to the enemies; I am not running.

You taught us Daddy when God said we should put on the Armour of God, it was not armour for our back

You are the one who taught us: it means don’t turn your back to the enemy; I am not running.

Light is not running from darkness

These are the kind of children that I want.

These are the kind of children I had

These are the kind of children I must have.

That is why I was…, when that man said: come and pray for us.

I don’t want him to see my tear that was why I waved to him, I need prayers too.

The late Orimulosin of Ijebu igbo, one of my sons of blessed memory, came to me and said E.A (we were intimate so people call me by my initials – E.A), I think I am ready to go home.

I said which home?

He said heaven.

I said to him, you want to go home?

He said yes.

He said what else do I want?

I am old; I am Oba; anything anybody could achieve I have already achieved.

You want to go?

He said yes.

How many souls have you won?

How many souls?

I said there are palaces they won’t let me enter but they will open the door to you, we will go today.

You are not going anywhere.

He was around for more than ten years after that.

Going home!

Which home?

What are you going to say when you get before your Saviour?

What will be your excuse?

When the old is willing to postpone home going;

And I am telling you when somebody reaches certain age he can see heaven; can get glimpse of heaven

When you get glimpse of heaven you want to go.

If an old man could say I postpone my going, what is the excuse of you youth and young and adults?

Redeemed Christian Church of God is a covenant church.

Almighty God told my father in the Lord when I return I will meet this church on earth and this church is going to go throughout the whole world – that is what He said.

Meaning what?

Because once God has spoken it is done.

If you are not willing to be in the arm of the Lord to fulfill His covenant, He will raise a replacement.

He told the children of Israel when they got to the border of the Promise Land: we cannot go in, there are giants in the land.

He said no problem you don’t want to go, fine, die in the wilderness

But as for the land I have already promised to Abraham, if you don’t go, your children will go.

And those who said they won’t go, He caused them to stay round a circle for forty years till none of them living except the two that said we can go; we can do it.

We said we should double every year at least once

And I said simple, every soul win another soul; just one soul

That is why the young man says are you trying to tell me you cannot win one soul; you cannot win one soul in a year!

When somebody could promise God a thousand!

At my age I still travel all over the world; I am not a trader, I don’t go to trade;

I have never been a businessman, I will never be one – it is not my own assignment; my assignment is to win soul every opportunity

And you have greater opportunities than I have; you live among these people.

I told my senior Pastors yesterday I just returned from Israel

What have you gone to do in Israel?

Israel! Seventy years old

They are having (the Christian) they are having a celebration of feast of tabernacles and people came from all over the world and I was invited to come and preach.

So I accepted the invitation

And you will think everybody coming to Israel must be Christians

When they gave me the microphone and I spoke on what they asked me to speak and then I gave an altar call; and half of the congregation came forward to surrender their lives to Jesus.

That was why I went. 

That was why I accepted the invitation.

I was asked to preached at the wedding of the one of the children of former president and at the end of the sermon I gave an altar call

Somebody said how can you give an altar call at the presidential wedding?

Haa!

The only reason I agreed to preach was that I will make an altar call.

You don’t want me to make an altar at your occasion, don’t give me the microphone

Because if you give me the microphone; you may not call me back and that opportunity I am not going to lose.

My beloved children if you want to write down I will give you an outline of the sermon I wrote because you are going to pray tonight; that is what you are going to do.

If you want to write down, you can do quickly.

What does it mean to be indomitable?

It means you cannot be stopped from moving forward – Exodus 14 from verse 1 to 28 (that should be enough for you):

The children of Israel got to the red sea and the red sea was saying to them you are not going forward;

The wind of God blew and the sea parted.

So nobody can stop me from moving forward because the wind of God is blowing for me.

Remember the story of a great politicians somewhere abroad who saw our church that we were building and said this church – about that people who build churches everywhere

He said this church will never be dedicated;

He will see to it; he will use is official power;

He said over his dead body.

The children told me

I said no problem; nobody is going to stop me from moving forward.

A week before the dedication he died.

Did I kill him?

No.

How can I be here in Nigeria and kill somebody thousand of something away.

But if the purpose my life is to preach the gospel of Jesus and win souls for my God, anybody who stands in the way the wind will blow him or her.

Indomitable means nobody can keep you from rising.

You know the story of Joseph

I don’t need to tell you the story of Joseph but you can read it from Genesis 37, Genesis 39, Genesis 40, Genesis 41.

Everything the devil can do to make sure that he will not rise, they tried it and fail.

Why?

Because Pharaoh said there is something in this man, the Spirit of God

That was why the second verse of that hymn says: rising, nobody can stop me because the Spirit of God is residing in me.

You will remember the man who said one of my children will not be promoted

They transferred him;

Then they promoted my son;

Then they brought him back.

Just to show him that there is a God who is greater than any boss.

Anyone who says you are not going to rise, who have turned himself to mountain and the Bible said we are to tell every mountain to jump into the sea and that is going to happen before the end of this month.

We have been told that indomitable means nobody can stop you from reaching the top.

And the reason is simple because the Everlasting arms are underneath you lifting you up.

As God Himself who said you shall be head and not tail; above only and not beneath.

To be indomitable means nobody can take you imprison; they cannot cage you.

They throw you to prison, your friend will come and lose you –

Revelation chapter 3 verse 7: because He has the keys of David.

You will remember the story of one Egba woman in the other auditorium

We finished Holy Ghost night and she boarded a bus and they took her into one bush

And in the bush there they were already shaving her;

She saw other people head being shaven and then the next thing she will see was the head alone will come out; they have been cut off by those.

And then she began to pray in the spirit

And suddenly the man in the bush, the head cutter there came out and said who is that making that kind of noise there?

And they said it is this woman

Who asked you to bring this one here?

Take her back quickly.

They can capture you but they won’t be able to keep you.

And I am decreeing they won’t even capture you.

To be indomitable means you cannot be killed because your life is hid in Christ – Colossians 3 verse 3

My father in the Lord used to say my life is hid me Christ; Christ is hid in God.

Anybody who wants to kill me will first of all kill God, open His stomach and bring out Jesus Christ and then kill Jesus Christ open His stomach and bring me out.

If you can do that then you can kill me.

I am yet to meet anybody who can kill God.

I have never forgotten the story of that boy who was a student when we first started little Nursery at Headquarters and we were using a little kabubu bus to go and bring them to school.

They got to Oyingbo and armed robbers were robbing and they were firing gun shots into the air;

And a straight bullet (because that boy was seating with the driver; facing the driver; seating on the dashboard), the bullet entered the back of the boy, came out of his stomach; pulling out his intestine.

And the teacher carried the boy, intestine coming out; she was carrying the intestine in her hand and they drove to LUTH

And before they got to LUTH the boy has lost a lot of blood; a lot of blood!

The Doctors…, and of course you know the go-slow in the rush hour; …the Doctors take a looked at the boy and said there is no need wasting time on this boy, he will soon die.

About two hours passed no attention and boy was still breathing

Well, maybe at least we should push back the intestine and even if he die let him die neatly.

The boy is still alive today.

I am not preaching a sermon this night but I want to tell those of you who have been joking with issue of your salvation, do not say I did not warm you: the countdown to the end has started.

You know what that means?

Any of us here today will be gone by tomorrow.

And that mean absolutely any of us.

And you know what those of us who are in Christ we are not bothered; as a matter of fact we look forward to the time when we will live this world and go to heaven.

If you have seen heaven…, by the grace of God I have seen my own house there; …the only thing that will not allow you to commit suicide is that if you commit suicide you will miss it.

The only fellow who should be afraid of death is the one who is not born-again, whose life is not hid in Christ; whose sins are not washed away.

Because if they die, they go to the other side

I am telling you, the other side is horrible.

So if you are here and you have not yet given your life to Jesus Christ, in your own interest, you are not doing it for anyone; in your own interest, in other that you may escape the terror of the Lord, come and give your life to Jesus Christ now

And I will count from one to ten.

You better hurry up because the rest of us want to pray.

Tonight is not a night of joking.

So if you want to give your life to Jesus; I mean you really want to give your life to Jesus you don’t want to joke with salvation anymore.

Well you come as I am counting now:

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine,

Those of you who are already in front and those of you on the way; both here and old arena and all over the world where you are viewing us cry to God now and ask God to have mercy on you and save your soul. Lord I don’t want to go to hell, please let Your blood wash away my sins, give me a brand new beginning and I will serve You for the rest of my days.

The rest of us please let us stretch our hands towards these people and intercede for them. Pray that the Almighty God who saved your soul will have mercy on them and save their souls also. Pray for them. Intercede for them.

Those of you on the way hurry up, hurry up.

Thank You Jesus.

Thank You Jesus.

Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Saviour I want to thank You for speaking to us Yourself tonight. Thank You because You are the Word, You come forward, You come forth through Your children; I just want to thank You for these people who have responded to the altar call; please remember Your promise Lord that whosoever will come unto You, You will in no wise cast out; they have come to You now Father, please receive them in Jesus’ name; have mercy on them; saves their souls; let Your blood wash away their sins; give them a new beginning Lord and let them serve You till the end. From now anytime they call on You please answer them by fire.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Praise the Lord.

I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward.

I will be praying for you from now on;

So I will need your names, your address and your prayer requests.

Counselors are coming.

If you like you may turn this way, turn to your left; meet them on the way, they will give you a card which you must fill very quickly and return unto them and I promise I will be praying for you.

Why they are filling their cards, I want to encourage you further: nobody can pay for salvation; salvation that God brought for us; it was at a sacrifice of His only begotten son.

We were saved by grace through faith;

But you can at least respond to the sacrifice.

He said if He laid His life for us, we should lay our lives for the brethren.

Look at that man that spoke the second time – the second preacher;

As he was talking about that boy who was addicted to marijuana, addicted to alcohol, addicted to all manners of thing;

Even before he said the something I said that is the boy 

And then he heard the gospel and his live changed.

There are several people today waiting for their life to be transformed and they are waiting for you; waiting for you to tell them.

When I became born again I made up my mind that I will use every means possible to reach at least somebody for Christ.

So I began to write tracts and one of the tracts gets to the prison in Kwara state in Ilorin;

And the prisoner took the tract and he was going to wrap India hemp with it;

He just decided let me read it first and he read and gave his life to Jesus Christ.

Today, he is an elder in the church.

A tract is reached out to him.

In my eagerness to win souls for God; I want to say this to the glory of God, just to let you know the kind of hunger we had then;

When we heard that during Festac there will be holiday for schools and colleges;

Maybe I did not read it correctly; I thought it was going to be all over the country; I didn’t know it was suppose to be in Lagos alone.

I said haa, the people are gathering together singing, dancing; cultural festival;

Why can’t I gather students together since they are going to be holidays; why can’t I gather them together so that we can sing and praise Jesus Christ; and study the word of God.

That was how was started the first Congress in 1976.

I wanted to bring all students in the grammar schools and Bible colleges together.

I did not have the money: I said come, you will be fed free.

I got the address of all colleges, all grammar schools from WEAC;

I printed invitation cards to send to all of them

And then I discover I did not even have enough money to buy stamps and I sold my car and use the money to buy stamps and then posted the cards; and the response began to come.

 And suddenly I was face to face with problems: where am I going to get the money to feed these boys and girls?

But once God knows that you want to do His will He will make a way;

And He made a way.

He has been making way since then.

He will make a way for you.

But don’t think of a God you can use; think of how God will use you – how you will be a vessel unto honour in His hands.

Your prayers this evening will be few and I want you to pray it with all your heart;

First one: (you want to write it down)

David said I will live and not die.

Why?

Because I want to declare the glory of God.

You first prayer will be: Lord, lengthen my life because I will serve You – I don’t want to die young; If you wish because I want to serve You.

Second prayer will be: Almighty God, fill me to overflowing with Your Holy Spirit that when I open my mouth to witness to anyone Your word in mouth will be fire and their hearts will be like stubbed. Fill me till overflowing with Your Holy Spirit so my word will be fire so that I can win several souls for you.

Third prayer of course: Father, set me on fire for You. And tell the Holy Spirit set me on fire for You so that I will become untouchable for the enemy; nobody plays with fire; set me on fire for You.

And then number four: Let Your wind blow in my favour; let Your wind blow in favour of my family; let Your wind blow in favour of Your church so that we can match forward for You and no one will be able to stop us.

The altar is open; if you want to come to the altar to pray you are welcome.

Please pray tonight.

I don’t want to hear these quiet prayers we are Pentecostal.

One of the signs of the Pentecostal is the we are noisy, we pray.

We pray in such a manner that the devil himself will hear us and run; we cry to God; we open our mouth; we don’t murmur

We are Pentecostal, cry to the Almighty God.

I will live, I will not die and I will declare the works of God. Fill me to overflowing with Your Holy Spirit my Father and my God so that Your word in my mouth will be fire and the heart of the listeners will be stubbed. Baptize me with the Holy Spirit afresh Lord; set me on fire so that I will become untouchable, untouchable to the enemies. Let Your wind blow; let Your wind blow for me, let Your wind blow for my family; let Your wind blow for Your church as we match forward for You Lord God Almighty so that nobody, nobody can stop us.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God. Let Him hear you even if you are the only one that He is going to hear tonight. Cry unto the Almighty God. Pray as someone who is already in contact with the Holy Spirit. Thank You Father.

Thank You Lord.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

In the Name that is above every other name you will not die; you will live long; you will be healthy; you will declare the works of God; God will fill to overflowing; He will baptize you with fire; you will become untouchable to the enemy; the wind of the Holy Spirit will blow for you. Every obstacle in your way, anything that will not allow you to fulfill your destiny the wind of God will blow away. From now on it will be easy for you to win souls. It shall be well with you. God will use you for His glory.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

God bless you.

The Lord said there is someone here saying it is a long time God spoke to me directly last; He asked me to tell you, you will hear from Me tonight.

Father we are here tonight because we need help; as individual we need help; as families we need help; as a nation we need help; even as a church we need help; Father, send help to us; let our sun rise again. Before this day is over my Father and my God, before this night is gone let our sun rise again. Please save souls tonight; heal tonight, set captives free; let there be miracles, let there be signs, let there be wonders and let begin right now.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let someone shout hallelujah.

Shake hands with two or three and say good evening God bless you

And you may please be seated.

Tonight we want to talk on: My Sun will Rise Again.

I think you should say it with your own mouth.

That is under the broad heading of Stronger than Your Enemies Part Ten

But before we proceed to the real topic for today, as usual we will want to spend the first few minutes talking to those who are yet to give their lives to Jesus Christ.

And so for the first part of tonight message we will want to go to Genesis 49 verse 1 to 7:

And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.

Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.

O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.

 

Hmmm!

It is a dangerous thing to think that when you do something evil because judgment did not come immediate that that means what you have done is forgotten.

Sin is a killer; it kills.

It does not matter how big you are, it does not matter how important you are, pay attention to my words: you do evil in the secret, nothing hid that will not come to the open – that is the word of God.

Jacob was about to die, he was on his death bed and he gathered together all his children and said I am going now but before I go let me tell you what will happen to you in the future

And he started with the eldest son Reuben and he described him in glowing terms: strong, handsome, etcetera etcetera

Then he turned to him and said you may be the first born, you may have attributes of a great man, he said but he will become nothing.

Why?

Because in Genesis 35 verse 22, Reuben went in to have sex with his father’s other wife and they reported the matter to the father, he heard about it and said nothing and he just kept quiet and so Reuben thought I have gotten away with this one.

But the father waited until when he was about to die, when there will be no room for maneuvering.

He said okay, you thought I did not know what you did, I knew; I am waiting and now the time for judgment has come.

And then he turned to Simeon and Levi and remembered what these two boys also did:

In Genesis 34 verse 1 to 30, what happened was Israel was in the land of some strangers and one of the sons of owner of the land saw one of the daughters of Israel and enticed her and raped her.

That girl happened to be the sister of Simeon and Levi, they were furious: you raped our sister!

Then the boy who did this one told his own father and say I love this girl; I know I made a mistake, I should not have forced myself on her but I am ready to marry her.

So the father came with the boy who committed the offence and said to Jacob: please, anything you want just tell me; we will pay any dowry, my son wants to marry your daughter – we have come to restitute.

Okay.

Jacob said, well it is not our custom to marry strangers but if you are willing to be circumcised like us then we can begin to talk, after all we are strangers in your land.

And the other people said, we will do anything you say.

So they circumcised every one of them

And you circumcised a man, even if you circumcise a child you know how painful it can be

All the men got circumcised.

By the third day when the circumcision had taken total whole on the men they were in great pain and sore, Simeon and Levi took their saw and invaded the home of this people and kill them all, every one of them and then took their sister away.

When Jacob heard

He said, haa! I gave my word to these people and now everybody in the surrounding we hear

He said, you boys have troubled me today but he kept quiet until he was about to die.

Now, turn to them, Simeon, Levi – you wicked boys, he said you will be scattered in Israel.

If your father curses you on his death, it means that your sun as set

Because as soon as Jacob finished cursing these boys, he died; so there was no room to maneuver.

However, something happened, something very very strange in Numbers chapter 3 verse 5 to 13:

God spoke to Moses years later and said to him bring Levi near Me (the boy that the father said he will be scatter; God said, bring Levi near) they are going to be My priest; I have chosen them to be my first born

Haa, his father cursed him and died!

The Almighty God said, I cancel the curse and instead of the curse I replace it with a blessing – the greatest bless of all.

In fact, God went further to say the only thing Levi will be doing, they will be worshipping Me, they won’t do any manual labour, I will supply their need.

If there is any one here tonight is under any form of curse in the Name that is above every other name before the sun rises tomorrow, the curse will be gone.

What happen?

What led to this dramatic change?

Because it is the same God who says if your father blesses you, you are blessed; if your father curses you, you are cursed.

How come He is doing this?

Well, something happened in Exodus 32 before we go Numbers, something happened in Exodus 32: Moses went to collect the Ten Commandment and he was late in coming; he was away forty days and forty nights

And then the children of Israel said to Aaron, Moses had been gone this time he has not come back, by now he must be dead; make us a god that we will be worshipping.

In any case who is this God that we cannot see; we want a god that we can see

So, Aaron made them a calf of gold and then got them to begin to dance and eat and drink; dance before this idol

And then Moses returned and saw what was going on.

What is this?

And Moses was aware these people they can be very tough particularly now that many of them were drunk as well.

And he wanted to punish them for what they have done against God.

So the Bible says in Exodus 32 from verse 25 to 26, Moses stood at the gate and announced: who is on the Lord side; let him come to me?

And all the sons of Levi like one man crossed to the side of Moses and said we are on the Lord side.

God looked down from the heaven, these people who are supposed to be wanderers, these people who are supposed to be scattered, these people that their father had cursed they say they are on My side

God said, okay; if you are on My side then I AM on your side: you will be My first born; the curse of your father I cancel; you will be the one who will be serving Me.

I am sure you know the conclusion.

The Lord is asking tonight, this extra ordinary night when destinies are going to change, when sun will rise;

God is calling who is on the Lord side?

If you are here and you have not yet surrender your life to Jesus Christ, answer that question tonight.

If you are not on the Lord side, run to Him and let Him save your soul; let His blood wipe away your sin; let every curse upon you be destroyed tonight.

So if you are here or you are listening to me at the overflow, in the old arena or at all the various watching centres across the globe

And you have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus but you want to do so, here what God is saying who is on the Lord side?

Come and surrender your life to Him.

I am going to count from one to ten, if by the time I say ten you are not already standing before the altar, I know you don’t want to come; we will continue with the rest of the service

But if you want to come, the Lord is calling now.

Who is one the Lord side?

If your answer is yes Lord I am on Your side, I want to say bye bye to the life of sin, I want to say bye bye to forces of darkness, I want to say bye bye to everything that is contrary to Your will then come and surrender your life to Jesus now

I am counting:

One, two, three, four, five,

The choice is a simple one, Jesus Christ said those who are not for Me are against Me;

He said either you are on the Lord side or you are against the Lord, the choice is yours.

Six,

There is no middle ground, it is either you are for Him or you are against Him

He says who is on my side?

He is calling

Who wants to surrender his or her life to Me, who want to be saved, who wants his sin to be forgiven, who wants to say bye bye to the devil and welcome to Jesus; come now.

Seven, eight,

I can see some of you who are coming from afar, I will wait a little but you have to hurry up, hurry up; it is your day of decision: you want to be save, you want your sins to be forgiven, you want the blood of Jesus to wipe away your sins, come.

There is nothing hidden that will not come in the open. When Simeon and Levi killed those people the shed innocent blood and blood has a voice; blood always cries out. You shed innocent blood that blood will cry out sooner or later.

Nine,

Come, let the blood of Jesus wash away your sins and give you a brand new beginning. Those of you who have already come and those of you who are on the way, cry unto the Lord and ask Him to please save your soul and let His blood wash away your sins.

Talk to Him. Promise that from now on you will serve Him, you will serve Him in spirit and in truth. Ask Him to have mercy on you; promise Him that from today onward He will be your Lord.

And please the rest of us can we stretch our hands towards these people and intercede for them that the One who saved our own souls will save their souls also. Pray for them brethren; intercede for them and the Almighty God who can cancel curses, who can redeem from the curses of the law will save the souls of these people, wipe away their sins and give them a brand new beginning.

And those of you who are still on the way just keep coming; make sure you get here before I finish praying because I will be praying for salvation in a moment. Even as you are running in, cry unto the Lord, ask Him to be merciful unto you, ask Him to please forgive your sins and give you a brand new beginning; promise Him that by the grace of God you will not go back to the world of sin that you will serve Him in spirit and in truth from now on henceforth.

Hurry up, hurry up, I can still see quite a few of you; come the Lord is calling you, He wants to save your soul. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Saviour I want to bless Your holy name for Your word; I want to thank You very very much for these people who have come forward to surrender their to You; please remember Your promise that whosoever will come unto You, You no wise cast out, they have come to You now Father, please receive them in Jesus’ name; forgive their sins; let Your blood wash away their sins; Father, save their souls; write their names in the book of life. From now on Lord anytime they call on you answer them by fire and let them remain Yours forever.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Now those of you who have come forward let me here you shout hallelujah.

I want to rejoice with you because from now by the grace of God I will be praying for you.

And so the Counselors will give you some cards which you are to fill very quickly and give it back to them.

Your name, your address, your prayer request, and I promise you I will be praying for you.

Psalm 30 from verse 1 to 5:

1 I will extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

My sun shall rise again.

Say it loud and clear.

God controls sun rise and sun set.

Every day begins with an evening

As far as God is concern, every day begins with an evening. Genesis chapter 1 verse 5: in the evening and in the morning the first day.

Psalm 55 verse 17: David said in the evening, in the morning, in the noon, will I pray.

The day begins in the evening.

And Genesis chapter 1 verse 1 to 3, after God made the heavens and the earth, everything became dark, darkness cover the whole place – it was night time.

But then God commanded the first sun rise: let there be light and there was light.

According to Job chapter 9 verse 1 all the way to verse 7 (Job 9: 1 to 7), particularly verse 7; we discover that if God commands the sun not to rise it won’t;

So the sun rises at His command.

In the Name that is above every other name, He will command the sun to rise for someone here tonight.

And according to Joshua chapter 10 from verse 12 to 14, if He commands the sun not to set, it will not set.

That is why I will like to decree tonight for all of you who are genuine children of the most high God, when your sun rises this time, it will never set again.

God controls sun rise and sun set

As a matter of fact, in Isaiah 38 verse 5 to 8, we find that when God commands the sun to retrace it step, it obeyed.

The sun has gone down a certain number of degrees God said okay sun go back, go back.

Several years ago, I think it was at the University of Ibadan I was preaching and suddenly I heard God said there is someone here God has reduced your age by ten years

And an elderly woman, a professor, caught it and says amen.

It was not long after that that people began to say to her: haha, Prof you are looking younger.

She said you are not there, you did not hear?

God took ten years away from my age.

May I prophesy to someone here tonight, in the Name that is above every other name you will begin to grow younger.

The Bible says in psalm 113 verse 3: it says from the rising of the sun to the going down of the same the Lord’s name shall be praised.

He controls the rising and the setting of the sun.

Psalm 74 verse 16 says the day is thine O Lord and the night also.

He controls both – the day or the night.

Now, the One who controls the day and the night automatically then controls seasons

Because when we are talking about raining season, as we say we are enjoying the raining season, days is passing; the sun is rising, the sun is setting and before you know it dry season will come

And why you are in the drying season, sun is rising, sun is setting and before you know it the raining season is back.

Daniel chapter 2 verse 20 to 21, the Bible says He changes times and season.

I am believing God that the season is about change for the better for someone.

You will remember the story of one man who was over fifty and have never married because he could not just talk to a woman to marry me – Highly educated and comfortable job but he just could not say to woman will you marry me.

Then there was just a programme like this he gave his life to Jesus; six month later he got married;

First time the wife got pregnant – set of twins;

Two years later another set of twins because his season has changed.

Stand on your feet; lift up your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, beginning from now let my season of joy begin.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

He control times and season; Almighty God, beginning from now let my season of joy start, let my season of joy, my season of rejoicing let it start, let it start, let is start; let my season of rejoicing start from tonight, from this very moment. He changes times, He changes season, He controls sun rise, He controls sun set, Almighty God from this very moment let my season of rejoicing begin. Thank You Father. Let my own season of rejoicing begin, let my season of rejoicing begin right now, right now, right now. You change times and seasons let my own season of rejoicing begin right now. Thank You Father.

Amen.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

No matter how long the night it must end – night must yield to day.

It has been like that from the foundation of the world – it must yield to day: In the evening, in the morning – the first day; then came again in the evening, in the evening – the second day; in the evening, in the morning – the third day;

So the night must end.

And as the Lord lives the One who controls sun rise and sun set, for someone here today your night is over.

In Mark chapter 5 verse 25 to 34, the Bible tells us about the woman with the issue of blood, for twelve she was in the night of suffering.

She kept the problem to herself; everywhere she went she was bleeding –twelve years;

But one day, her night ended; she came in contact with the One that says I AM the Light of the world and her night change to day.

In Luke chapter 13 from verse 10 to 13, there was woman who was bent double by sickness, the spirit of infirmity, for eighteen years;

She had to walk about bend double no matter how she tried she could not lift herself, the devil bound her;

By that she was a spectacle of shame for eighteen years.

But one day, she met the Lord Jesus Christ and her night ended; it ended.

In John chapter 5 verse 2 to 14, the Bible tells of another man by the pool of Bethesda (you know all these people) for thirty-eight years he was sick; thirty-eight years!

Thirty-eight long years of night; all friends had forsaken him

By the time Jesus arrived on the scene he said I have no man.

If you are sick for thirty-eight years your friends are likely to say forget that case; haa, but a day came the night ended.

I wonder what they said when they suddenly saw in church, singing, dancing, rejoicing;

They have not seen him for thirty-eight years!

In Acts chapter 3 from verse 1 to 11, there was that poor man, born lame, begging for forty years by the Beautiful gate of the temple –

It was a long night of watching other people dance and he could not dance;

Watching other people rejoicing and he could not rejoice but the night ended.

In Mark chapter 10 verse 46 to 52, Bartimaeus did not even know what is the different between day and night;

His own day, his own night, has been one continuous darkness from the day he was born.

But then we heard that Jesus was passing by and all of a sudden darkness gave way to light.

It does not matter how long your darkness has been, I come in the name of the One who made heaven and earth, your sun will rise again.

How many stories can I chose from?

I remember when I was a lecturer in Ilorin and there was this very young, very brilliant lawyer, and it all starts like an ordinary fever but very soon we discover he could not move his leg properly;

Then he could not move his hand properly;

Then before we knew what was happening he was paralyzed from neck downward.

The brain is still there but he could not even seat on his own.

How can you go to court to argue a case if you cannot get up

It was a long night

But then one day the Almighty God stepped in and then suddenly, just as the night came the night disappeared.

Stand on your feet; lift your voice to the most high God and say: Father, my own night must end tonight.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, everything called night in my life must end tonight; my night must end tonight; my night must end tonight; in the mighty name of Jesus Christ my night must end tonight; my night of suffering must end tonight; my night of shame must end tonight; my night of failures must end tonight; my night of sickness must end tonight; my night must end tonight, it must end tonight; my night of loneliness must end tonight; my night of barrenness must end tonight; my night of fruitless efforts must end tonight; my night of disgrace must end tonight; no matter how long the night it must end but my own must end tonight, tonight; my night must end tonight; my own night must end tonight; my night must end tonight; in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, my own night must end tonight; my night must end tonight. My sun must rise again; my night must end tonight; it has to end, it has to end. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus.

Please be seated.

Now, night has experience, it is a terrible thing but as long as the sun rises, after that it is what the end is that matters.

Ecclesiastes chapter 7 verse 8 says better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof.

I sat down there and I heard all manners of testimonies tonight.

There was one particular testimony that brought tears to my eyes; barren for twenty-nine years

Oh Lord have mercy!

Because we have to hurry these people up, two minutes say your testimonies because of others and because of time.

Can you imagine how many months that woman had wept?

You say happy new, haa, amen, this will be my year

And then the year gone no pregnancy

First year, second year, third year, tenth year, twentieth year, twenty-nine!

And then all of a sudden, the night ended.

And in one go the Almighty God brought forth three children.

Help me shout hallelujah to my God.

Mockers cannot mock her anymore.

Those who have been saying where is your God cannot say so anymore;

Those who thought she was going to die barren cannot say so anymore.

In the name of the One who called me your mocker shall be permanently silent.

It is the end that matters.

In Job chapter 1 you can read it from verse 1 to 21 (Job chapter 1 verse 1 to 21), Job lost everything, his day became night;

The richest man in the entire country was reduced to somebody who said naked I came because the devil took everything away – he said I came naked and I know I will be going naked.

But by the time you get to Job 42 verse 12 to 16, the Bible said God blessed the later end of Job more than the beginning.

In the name of the One who controls seasons your end shall be more glorious than your beginning.

In Mark chapter 3 verse 1 to 5, the Bible tells us of a man whose hand had withered; the hand used to be strong but little by little the hand became useless;

It did not say the hand was paralyzed that could be a sudden something; withered that means things got bad and got worse and worse until it could not get any worse

But then God stepped and the withered hand was restored as whole.

Every hand that had been by the enemy in the Name that is above all names, even before tomorrow morning your hand will be restore.

I still remember one occasion there was a call made for an offering; there was a man who got up and started crying

Why was he crying?

He said once upon a time, if they made that kind of call I will go to the Pastor and said please don’t make any further announcement this is the money you need;

He said now I cannot even give anything.

The hand withered.

Every withered hand in the mighty name of Jesus Christ shall be restored full in Jesus’ name.

When the sun rises again the story will change.

I have told you the story of my uncle; very very very successful man, doing great and sudden the tide turned and he lost everything; became so poor that he had to be taken the rapper of his wife to make buba and soro; things got that bad.

Then he made up his mind, he said death is better than shame

He said I know what I will do:

I will go to church, I will sing, I will dance, everybody will notice me and then return home and die; he said I will attend my own funeral that was what he said.

Then he came to church and the preacher was preaching and chose to talk about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego that when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego said that the God who will serve will deliver us,

They did not know how God will do it but God did.

Oh, he said that is true o: I don’t know how I am going to get out of my present situation but I refuse to die.

The day he was telling the story, he has just bought fourteen cars in a day for those who are working for him.

Stand on your feet; lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, remember me tonight.

Please remember me, remember me Lord, remember me tonight, remember me tonight, remember me tonight; remember me tonight; let my night end tonight Lord remember me tonight; let me have an encounter with You; remember me tonight; this very night remember me, remember me, remember me, send Your word to me tonight Lord God Almighty remember me; let my night change today, let my sun rise. O yes Lord remember me tonight; remember me tonight Lord; Ancient of days remember me tonight; remember me tonight; remember me tonight; Almighty God remember me tonight; speak to me Lord, let me hear just a word, let me hear a word that will change my night to day, remember me tonight Father; remember me tonight; remember me this very tonight; remember me this very tonight. It is the end that matters Lord let my end be glorious, let my end be wonderful, let my sun rise, let my sun rise; o yes Lord let my sun rise; please Daddy remember me tonight, remember me tonight. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

The one who is passing through a night experience is like somebody who is under a siege but when the sun rises the siege will be over.

In 2Kings chapter 7 verse 1 to 11, the Bible tells us that it took less than one day for the siege over the city of Samaria to be lifted;

Things have got too bad; a whole city was going through a night experience, so bad that human began to eat their children;

Night cannot be darker than that

Then the man of God spoken, he said in less than twenty-four hours the siege will be over.

And I am standing on this exalted of the most high God and I decree tonight for someone who is under a siege by the time the sun rises tomorrow your siege will be over.

They were under siege: physically they were under siege; enemies all round, surrounded their city and they dear not come out.

Materially they were under city because they could not go out to work so they have no money.

Spiritually they were under siege;

I mean it is not natural for a woman to say I will eat my child.

But then God moved and in less than twenty-four hours everything changed.

In 1Kings chapter 17 verse 8 to 16, the widow of Zarephath had been under a siege for a long time.

She watched has day by day the food in the house became smaller and smaller and smaller until there was just one meal left, the siege on her was so heavy she decided the next thing is to commit suicide with her son

Let us have a farewell party but help was nearer than she thought.

As the Lord lives the help that you have been expecting will come tonight.

Help came at a darkness moment: She said to the man of God that only one meal to prepare;

How big is the meal?

Two tiny stick are enough to prepare the meal but the tide turn, God came and change the season for her and she never had to beg for food again.

Thank You Father.

The Lord asked me to tell someone, He said there is no need for you to be depressed because victory is at hand.

In 2Kings chapter 4 verse 1 to 7, the enemy had almost concluded there plan;

They said to the widow, you don’t pay us by tomorrow we will sell your two sons to recover our money.

That very day, the Ever present help in the time of trouble stepped in; the plan of the enemy failed.

Before the enemy could close the trap on you, you will escape.

I have told you the story before of a young man who was a medical student at U.I he was not there when the problem started.

His father fought another man in their village and the man the father fought said to the father by the time I finish with you nobody will even remember you ever came to this world.

And his father said to that man: what can you do?

He did not know the kind of person he was fighting.

You have heard the story before; so I am only telling because of those of you who have not heard;

You want to know the details, ask those who have heard it before.

Within a week his father died and the children went home to bury their father, the first had just returned from Germany with a new car;

They buried their father, on their way back to their stations there was an accident, the boy in the new car, the first with new car had an accident and died.

They went home to tell their mother, your first born is dead;

The mother collapse and died.

The children came to bury their mother, on their way back another accident, the next child died and it went on until it remains just this boy.

Oh Lord, in the Name that is above every other name every siege on your family shall end tonight.

And the man who pronounced the curse on the family saw this one, this young fellow: oh there is still one more in the family; haa! Okay!

Before I kill this one I will tortured him a little.

So the boy returned from home, got to the campus and went mad;

Took all his books, all clothes and burnt them.

The picked him, took him to Aro; loaded him with drugs and when he was a bit more stable they released him;

Because he has burnt his books and everything, he went home to go and get money from his father’s farm so he could come back and start again;

And that man saw him, returned back to the campus, again they took him to Aro.

When he was – Aro today, school tomorrow until one day somebody saw him and said this is not a case for the hospital and they brought him to this camp and he met the Lord Jesus Christ.

Today he is medical doctor; today he is an Evangelist for God.

Stand on your feet; lift your voice to the most high God and say: Father, before the sun rises tomorrow lift the siege upon my family.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Lift the siege O Lord, lift the siege, let the sun rise so that the siege will be over; let the sun rise so that the siege will be over; please Lord let the sun rise, let the siege on my family be over, let the siege on my business be over, let the siege on my ministry be over, let the siege over my nation be over, Lord help. Please Lord, lift the siege over me, let the siege over my family, let the siege over my ministry, lift the siege; Papa lift the siege; let the siege over Your church; let the siege over my marriage; Lord lift the siege, let the siege over my children; please Lord let the siege over my health; lift the siege, Papa lift the siege, send help to me urgently, lift the siege, lift the siege; Almighty God, lift the siege, lift the siege, lift the siege Lord; Father, please lift the siege, lift the siege; Father, lift the siege; lift the siege. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

A night time experience can as a result of lost opportunities.

And many at times they will say opportunities was lost can never be regained but the sun can rise again.

A lost opportunity can be regained.

In 2Kings chapter 6 verse 1 to 7…

Haa, thank You Father

The Lord said there is some here tonight, He said the night has been long and stormy, He said your day will be longer and glorious.

I want to say amen to this one

Because the Lord said there is someone here today, He said you will not carry sorrow into the coming year.

In 2Kings chapter 6 verse 1 to 7, the Bible tells us about the sons of the prophet who went to cut down trees by Jordan and as they were cutting down the trees the axe head fell into the river and they cried: Master will borrowed the axe and now the axe head as gone into the river and we don’t even know how to swim

But the Almighty God intervened.

The man of God cut down a piece of wood threw it in the river, the piece of wood carried the anointing into the bottom of the river, located the iron, transfer anointing to iron;

And the iron that supposed to stay down jumped up and began to swim.

Don’t joke with the anointing, it can reverse the irreversible.

Every opportunity that you have lost in the Name that is above every other name shall be restored to you.

In Ezekiel 37 from verse 1 to 10, the Bible said that there was a valley full of dried bones – talk of lost opportunities

Those dried bones as far as any woman being concern can never match again.

It was army that was slaughtered in battle and they were left unburied and they were rotten and became bones and there were very dry when the Lord spoke through His servant.

The bones came back to bones; flesh came back there; the wind blew and dried bones became an army again.

In Romans chapter 4 from verse 16 to 21, the Bible tells us that the womb of Sarah was already dead;

The womb of Sarah was dead, she has not menstruated for more than forty years; opportunity of ever having a child was gone

But that was because she left God out of the equation but the moment God moved in the equation the one who they thought can never have a child became the mother Isaac.

In 2Kings chapter 2 from verse 19 to 22, the Bible tells us when Elijah had just gone to heaven and Elisha crossed over to Jericho;

Jericho had lost a great opportunity because Elijah passed through them, they could have called on him for help, they didn’t; they didn’t quite recognize the anointing that was on Elijah.

But when they saw him go to heaven by a whirlwind they said haa, haa, the one who could have helped is gone;

But then they saw his mantle falling on the ground; thank God for another opportunity.

Before the end of this year, every opportunity that you have lost shall be fully restored.

I told the story before:

I came to University of Lagos for an interview for Common Wealth Scholarship because I want to go for further studies and then…

Those of you who know Mathematics you know when they ask you a question in Mathematics it is either you know the answer or you don’t know;

There is no guest work in Mathematics that is why some people fear it, you cannot maneuver.

They asked all the questions they wanted to ask and I was wondering: do they know that I have honours degree in Mathematics;

I mean the question they were asking were HSCE questions

So I thought I have already won the scholarship

But all the time they were asking question there was a man there who was dozing (I won’t tell you what part of the country he came from)

And so when the others have finished with me they woke him up: do you have any question for him?

He said haa O yes.

He said where is Entebbe?

The question was so strange to me and I said sorry Sir I am not here for Geography and everybody laughed

And he was the chairman I did not know and so they laughed at the chairman

Of course I knew that I have lost the scholarship.

But as I was coming out of the place I met my professor who taught me when I was at Nsukka:

Haa Enoch what are you here for?

I said I am here for scholarship interview.

What for?

I want to go abroad to do my master.

He said you don’t need to go anywhere, I am here in Lagos; come here, I know your stuff.

I thought I had lost an opportunity, I did not know I gained one.

Because if I had gone I would not have been born again when I got born again; I won’t be standing here preaching today.

I want you to stand on your feet and lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, for every opportunity I have lost, give me a better one.

Come on open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

For every opportunity that I have lost give me a better one, a better one, a far far more glorious one; a much much much valuable one; every opportunity I have lost Father give me a better one, give me a better one. O yes Lord, I might have lost some opportunity give me far far more glorious one, You are able to do it, You control time, You control season, give me a better opportunity, a better opportunity, give me a better opportunity; give me a better opportunity O Lord; everyone I have lost give me something more glorious, more beautiful, more everlasting, give me a great opportunity Lord. Thank You my Father. Thank You Jesus. O yes Lord, give me a better opportunity to replace everyone that I have lost. Thank You Daddy.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

I want you with boldness to say to your enemies, don’t laugh too soon because my sun will rise again; enemy don’t laugh too soon.

In Genesis 16 verse 1 to 5, the Bible said when Sarah saw that she was barren she said to her husband take my made;

I mean she is my maid, whatever she produced is mine.

Go in to her, let us have a child by her.

So Abraham agreed; went in to the maid and the maid became pregnant and she began to ridicule her mistress: mama you have been here all these years just eating papa’s food, nothing to show for it; look at me, just one encounter.

But then in Genesis 21 verse 1 to 6, Sarah said God made be to laugh.

I decree tonight every one of you here you will laugh last.

In Judges 15 verse 14 to 15, when they brought Samson bound before the Philistines; the Philistines began to rejoice – we got him; he is finished

But why they were still laughing, thinking they got him, God moved and the one they thought he was going to die was the one who killed thousands of them and the rest of them fled.

The enemy was laughing but the laughter froze in their mouth.

As long as Christ is in me nobody can write me off.

Colossians 1:27 says Christ in you, the hope of glory.

There was a saying when we were young: enemies don’t rejoice over me, if I fall I will rise again.

Is that true of you?

Isaiah chapter 3 verse 10…

Oh thank You Father.

Thank You Father.

Thank You Lord.

Let me say amen to this one loud and clear

Because the Lord said there is someone here He said very soon you will be hearing congratulations; congratulations; congratulations.

In Isaiah chapter 3 verse 10, God made a promise: say ye to the righteous it shall be well with him.

My tomorrow will be alright.

What about your own?

Psalm 25 verse 2, David said oh my God I trust in thee let me not be ashamed; let not my enemies triumph over me.

How many of you trust the Lord?

Wave your hand to Him and shout hallelujah.

Each time I consider the story of Joseph my faith in God is increased.

God showed him a dream;

He showed him he was going to be great;

His brother sold him; they first of all threw him into a pit; they said let us kill him and see what will happen to his dream;

The pit was dry;

They sold him to slavery; he got there and prospered;

They threw him to prison; he got to prison and prospered;

He interpreted a dream for somebody who he told that when you get to the palace remember me; the fellow got there and forgot him;

It was a long night for Joseph

But there was a particular session of the story that I am not sure many of you pay attention to:

The wife of Potiphar when she got Joseph thrown into the prison by lying against Joseph;

Tell him, stupid boy I told him to compromise his faith he refused now he is gone forever.

Do you know that when Joseph got on the throne they said every knee must bow before him…, I was not there it is just my imagination; But I think that the first place Joseph will rode to in that chariot must have been Potiphar’s house.

I don’t know but I a rough idea that he would probably have said call out Potiphar’s wife, let her come.

Come and see the Joseph you threw into the prison and as she came she has to fall on her feet because the sun risen.

The sun will rise for somebody today.

In 1963 in Ondo, I was a teacher at Ondo Boys High School and Doctor Nnamdi Azikwe was the Governor General

First black Governor General of Nigeria and he was visiting as Governor General and so he came to Ondo.

And of course the whole city came out to meet him and we teachers, students, everybody will lined the root and he was riding in an open car

And as he was riding pass where we those of us from Ondo Boys High School were lining up suddenly he stopped the car.

Why?

He got down from the car and stood before a man, one of the teachers at Ondo Boys High School

You know what happened?

That teacher was the one who was responsible for the rustication of Nnamdi Azikwe when he was his pupil;

Before Azikwe hid himself in a ship that took him to America to go and study.

The boy that was rusticated is now the Governor General.

He stood before his teacher and said hello.

Stand on your feet; cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, let me laugh last.

Come on open your mouth, open your mouth.

Father let me laugh last; let me laugh last; Almighty God let me laugh last; let me laugh last; let me laugh last; let me laugh last; let me laugh last; Almighty God in Your own miraculous way let me laugh last, let me laugh last, let me laugh last; let me laugh last; let me laugh last; Almighty God let me laugh last; please Lord, let me laugh last. I don’t know how You will do it Lord but let me laugh last, let me laugh last, let me laugh last; let me laugh last. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

O that day I saw an old man weep

It is not a good thing to see a man weep.

But when the Governor General comes down from his car; stood;

I don’t know how he was able to locate him out of the crowd but he did

And all he said was: hello, you thought you have destroyed my dream but I am here.

 

Let me bring this to conclusion because we still have another programme later.

All I am trying to say to somebody here today is that your joy is at hand.

Why?

Because in the text I read to you Psalm 30 verse 5, it said, even His anger endureth but for a moment.

Even if it is God that is angry with me, He can forgive; His anger won’t last forever; His anger won’t last forever.

He said is anger is for a moment

And then he went on to say weeping may endure for a night…

What is coming in the morning?

According to Ecclesiastes chapter 2 verse 26,

Thank You Father.

The Lord asked me to tell someone He said stop being afraid of the lion because I have already removed its teeth.

Ecclesiastes chapter 2 verse 26 says God is a giver of joy.

It says God gives to a man that is good in His sight – wisdom, knowledge, and joy.

And then in John 16 verse 24, Jesus Christ said you want joy? All you need to do is ask for it till your joy be full.

So your last prayer tonight is going to be pray by the altar;

You come to Him and cry to Him and say: God, let my sun rise; we are many here but I want my own sun to rise; let my sun rise again.

I am tired of darkness, I am tired of the night, I am tired of sorrow; Almighty God let my sun rise again.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God; I am going to give you about fifteen minutes; cry to Him.

God let my sun rise again. Let my sun rise again; let my sun rise again.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

In the Name that is above every other name, that wonderful name of Jesus, your season of rejoicing will begin. No matter how long your night had been, your night will end tonight. Your end will be far more glorious than your beginning. Every siege against you, against your body, against your finances, against your family, against your business, against your church, against your nation shall be lifted tonight. In the name of the Almighty God you will laugh last. By the time the sun is rising physically tomorrow your own sun will be risen also. And you will never forget tonight; it will be the beginning of your joy; the beginning of your success; the beginning of your progress; you will laugh last. And for the rest of your life you will serve God with gladness. So shall it be.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Can someone shout hallelujah?

                                  DECEMBER HOLYGHOST SERVICE

Thank You Father.

Daddy asked me to tell someone here that as far as you are concerned the night is over.

Oh thank You Lord.

Daddy says I should tell someone here today your appointment with death has been postponed for fifteen years.

Oh blessed be Your name.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight you walked into bondage yourself but the Lord said because you came tonight I will bring you out.

And so Father we just want to say thank You. Thank You for Monday, thank You for Tuesday, thank You for Wednesday, thank You for what You did last night, thank You for what You have already done today, thank You in advance for tomorrow , thank You for all the previous congresses, accept our thanks in Jesus’ name. Thank You for January, thank You for February, thank You for March, thank You for April, thank You for May, thank You for June, thank You for July, thank You for August, thank You for September, thank You for October, thank You for November, thank You for December, please accept our worship in Jesus’ name. Tonight Father, just glorify Your name. In all our lives, in all our families, in all our nations, Father, glorify Your name. At the end of everything let Your name be glorified again.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah

And then shake hand with one or two people and say good evening Elect of God

And then you may be seated.

The way things will go tonight is different from what you are used to.

Because something happened overnight;

You know those of you who are here yesterday, I told you the story of my little boy: who will come to me when I am in my prayer room asking for cookies when I am discussing things that are very very serious with God and I had to suspend whatever I am doing to attend to him if I want peace

Like I told those of you who were here last night, I am God’s special boy; I am God’s born-boy; God is my Daddy; He is my Popsy; so occasionally we talk like that.

So last night I asked my Father, my Daddy for a special favour; something I have never asked Him before:

I said Daddy, the word of God says from the mouth of Jesus: Jesus said my Father work hitherto and I work…

I know you are busy in heaven, looking after the whole earth; but I have a special request: can You kindly suspend whatever You are doing and concentrate just one hour for this year congress; one consecrated hour for congress 2018?

And what did He say?

My son, it is done.

So my preaching tonight will be probably maybe fifteen minutes or twenty because I want to give you an opportunity to go before God for one solid hour.

Thank You Daddy.

Daddy asked me to tell somebody here, He said I assured you, you will not carry failure into the New Year.

Like I said, I am going to be very brief and then I give you one hour;

From the moment I say start praying, Daddy will be focusing on you for one hour.

I beg you during that one hour don’t ask for small things because as a result of what God will do tonight your life can never never never be the same again.

Colossian chapter 1 verse 27:

27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

What is the meaning of ‘Christ in you’?

It could mean several things:

It could mean Christ is dwelling in you – which gives you another name;

To add to the another name, those of us who have been here since Monday we have many names now;

We won’t tell those who have not come; we will keep it to our self

But add this one to your names: I am the habitation of Christ – Habitation of Christ.

I am the Light of the world; I am the Salt of the earth; I am a Child of God; I am a Christian; I am a Branch of the Life; I am an Ambassador of Christ; I am the Elect of God and now I am the Habitation of Christ.

But it could also mean Christ is in total agreement with me.

When you are discussing something important with your friend, you say are you in or out?

If he says I am in, it means I am in total agreement with you.

It could also mean Christ as stepped into my situation.

And if Christ stepped into my situation automatically everything will change.

You know when we say if a man be in Christ he is a new creature; old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.

So, if Christ is in anyone everything will change: from shame to glory.

So when we say glory ahead, we are prophesying – it is a prophetic theme.

I don’t want to spend time now going through all the details but it is prophetic and it generated hope.

Glory ahead is telling you don’t lose hope, don’t lose hope.

And as long as we are alive there is hope!

After all it is written say ye to the righteous it shall be well with him.

Glory ahead is an encouragement; it is saying help is available – like I told you yesterday and that that help is at hand; so don’t despair.

Glory ahead is comfort.

Because the Bible says in 1Cortinthians 14 verse 3 that one of the purposes of prophesy is to encourage and to comfort.

Now, when we say glory ahead, this is something that must be received by faith because the Bible say the Just shall live by faith.

Glory ahead means the glory is in the future:

Ahead does not necessarily mean very far away; as a matter of fact ahead means not too far away.

So if God is saying to you that your glory is ahead that ahead can mean today

For example in John chapter 2 verse 1 to 11, when they lack wine in the wedding in Canaan of Galilee and the mother of Jesus came to Him and He said my time has not yet come but before the end of the day the time came.

May I decree to somebody here today, your own glory will begin tonight.

I am just giving you an outline like I said I want to rush so we can pray.

Glory ahead means somehow the future is going to be better.

The glory of the latter house is going to be better than that of the former.

It means your best is yet to come.

It could mean that your sun is about to rise.

And I thank God; God has already spoken to someone that concerning that fellow the night is over.

Glory ahead could mean that the present is not so good but that things will not remain the same.

Or it could mean oh things are good but that things are about to get better.

For example Elisha was already a wealthy farmer and by the time the Almighty God stepped into his situation he became the father of kings.

Glory ahead could mean all things are glorious are the moment but God wants to move you to a new level of glory

Because according to 1Corinthians 15 verse 41, the Bible says stars differ from stars in glory.

It is in the power of Almighty God to move you, to move you from one level of glory to another.

Glory ahead could also mean there was a past that was not so good

There was a woman who named her child Ichabod that means glory has been lost.

Glory could have been stolen

The Bible says a new king arose that did not know Joseph and the children of Israel who were living gloriously suddenly found themselves to be slave;

So if your glory has been stolen and God now is saying glory ahead it means He is about to change the problems of the past into a glorious future.

Glory ahead could mean that some people have never even known glory before but God is saying is about to do a new thing.

Now what is Glory?

Glory is the opposite of shame:

Proverbs chapter 3 verse 35 says the wise shall inherit glory but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

Glory for the wise; shame for the fools;

The wise are the opposite of the fools;

And so glory is the opposite of shame.

So when God says glory ahead it means shame is about to end in your life.

And there are certain things that cause shame: sickness, particularly disease – you are not likely to see somebody going round advertising that he has HIV/Aids;

Failure can cause shame – you won’t see a student coming home shouting glory glory after he has just failed an exam;

Defeat can cause shame

When Nigeria team won the world cup several years ago, the day they arrived in Nigeria Lagos stood still as they drove through the street;

Next time they went to compete and defeated in the first round, nobody knew when they came in because there is nothing glorious in defeat.

There is nothing glorious in stagnation: there is nothing glorious to say that I have been on one stop for twenty years no promotion.

Nothing glorious in bondage: you will not see somebody come forward and say glory be to God I just discover I am a witch.

There is nothing glorious in sorrow.

So glory means the absent of all these terrible things …

Thank You Father.

The Lord asked me to tell someone, very soon your song will be – “now the battle is over, now the battle is over, now the battle is over, I am more than a conqueror”.

If you are the now let me hear you shout hallelujah.

So glory ahead means sickness will soon be over; failure will soon be forgotten; defeat will no longer be available to you; poverty will end; sorrow will be forgotten and joy will come.

Let me round up

I am doing this in your interest; you know I have my notes, I have prepared my note; that one hour is about to begin.

Glory belongs to the wise.

From now on be wise.

The wise shall inherit glory

Be wise.

He that winneth souls is wise.

You know the reverse of that?

He that is not winning souls is foolish.

Be wise.

Pay your vows

Because the Bible says God has no interest in the promises of fools.

Be wise.

Because the Bible says the fools say there is no God.

Be wise

The Bible says he that cometh to God must believe that He is and He is the Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Be wise.

Seek Good diligently.

You are going to pray for one hour.

If you like within that one hour fall asleep; an opportunity like this will not come again – it is not ‘may’, it will not come again.

It is not likely that I will go back to my Daddy and ask Him for this kind of favour again.

If I were you all those things I have asked God for that have not been granted up to this moment I will assemble them now and present them to God again.

If I were you I wouldn’t be asking for small things, I will be asking things like:

God don’t let my sun set in the afternoon

Almighty God, anoint me like nobody else

Almighty God let me be one of Your favorite children

Almighty God, put an end to shame in my family, don’t let me know sorrow again.

I will ask for big things; I will not tell you what to pray for; the one hour begins now.

Go ahead and begin to talk to the Almighty God.

You have one hour in which to talk to the Almighty God.

The altar is open you can come and just settle with the Almighty God

For one hour nobody is going to stop you until it is one hour and it is up to you what you do with that one hour.

Thank You Lord.

Thank You Jesus.

Glory be to Your holy name.

Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Even before you get to your seat let your testimonies begin. Oh my Father and my God, let the blessings of this moment last forever. Let the victories of tonight be permanent. A revival of praise, a revival of joy, a revival of success, a revival of promotion, a commotion of testimonies, release right now in Jesus’ name. Oh God, in case there is anything these Your children should have asked for and they forgot, out of Your grace, add to them in Jesus’ name. If they have asked for anything amiss because of the power that is in Your blood, correct it in Jesus’ name. In years to come let Your children remember tonight. For every one of us Lord let this be great turning point. Thank You Almighty.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.
