REVERSING THE IRREVERSIBLE –

7 3rd of January, 2003

In the passage read to us by the first speaker tonight he told us what the one leper did that was cleansed. He said he gave glory to God with a loud voice…. There is a lot of relationship between leprosy and sin. Leprosy can kill. The Bible said, “the wages of sin is death”. Leprosy separates someone from the gathering of peoples. Leprosy is a curse. The greatest curse that can ever be is upon the sinner. The leper who was cleansed has cause to be grateful. The sinner who has been cleansed by the Blood of Jesus has a greater cause to glorify God. Let me hear you lift up your voice to the Almighty God with a loud voice – The Prince Of Peace who saved your soul. The One who cleansed you in His Blood! Please lift up your voice to the Almighty God!

Tell The Almighty that I praise You for the salvation of my soul, for cleansing me in Your Blood. Father I praise You! I give You all glory! I give You all honour! I bless Your Name! I bless Your Name! I bless Your Name! I bless Your Name! I will praise You! I will magnify Your Holy Name! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You Lord. That one leper praised God loudly as if to say I don’t care what others do! I don’t care what they think of me!, I will praise God! I will magnify His Holy Name! I will praise Him! Thank You Jesus! …. Alleluia is our heavenly language, is our heavenly language!

Let’s go before our Maker, and just sing ‘Alleluia’ to Him! Let’s fall before Him! Let’s magnify His name! He’s worthy, worthy, worthy; He’s worthy to be praised! Thank you Jesus! Blessed be your Holy name! Thank You Jesus! glory be to Your Holy name! Go-ahead worship Him! Bless His Holy name! Magnify His Holy name! He is worthy to be worshiped! He is worthy, worthy, worthy! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we worship! Amen! Thank you Father! Thank You for Your Goodness! Thank You for Your mercy! Thank You for Your faithfulness! Thank You for Your support! Thank You for Your protection, promotion, provision, for answered prayers, fulfilled prophecies! Glory Glory! Glory! Glory be to your Holy name! Thank You for last year! Thank You for everything that happened last year! Thank You for the ups and downs, joys and sorrows! Thank You for everything! Glory be to Your Holy name. Accept our thanks in Jesus name! Thank You for Your Congress! Thank You for tremendous success! Thank You for taking control of everything! Glory be to Your Holy name Lord! Accept our thanks in Jesus name! Father Thank You for the New Year! Thank You that we are alive to see yet another year to be spent for your Glory! Accept our thanks in Jesus name!

Thank you for the first Holy Ghost service in the New Year, thank you for the miracles that are already happening! Thank You for the healings that already going on! Thank You for the holiness that shall be our own today! Thank You because we shall be your tithes for the people!

Accept our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen!) Tonight Father, meet us at every point of our need (Amen!) At the end of everything let Your name be glorified! Thank You Daddy! Glory be to Your name! in Jesus mighty name we have prayed! Let somebody shout Alleluia! Alleluia! If you are going to spend this year with joy then let me hear you shout Alleluia! Alleluia! If you are going to have testimony everyday of this year, let me hear you short a big Alleluia! Alleluia! Now shake hands with one or two people and say. Happy New Year to them: Happy New Year Happy! Happy New Year! Glory be to God, Thank you Jesus! God bless you! you may be seated.

 

Ezekiel 37 5-10, we want to continue our series on “Reversing the Irreversible’’ Ezekiel 37 5-10

Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:

6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.

8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.

9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

Somebody shall live this year (Amen!), and live mightily (Amen!) I don’t know how long God will allow us to spend on ‘Reversing the Irreversible’ because there are still so many thing to learn from this passage. One, we will begin to talk about tonight which we would conclude next month and then have a break for The Special Holy Ghost Service.

By the way, the theme for the Special Holy Ghost Service this year is “The Beginning of Greatness”. Somebody is going to become very great this year!

But in the meantime we discovered that it was an army that was in this valley and the army had been slain. They rotted. They became bones and they became dry bones but God stepped in and reversed the irreversible and brought an army that was already dead back to life! Every good thing in your life that had died shall come back to life this year in Jesus Name (Amen). And then let me move very quickly tonight because tonight actually is a night for intensive prayer. Those of us who came to the night vigil, the New Year Eve, The Lord told us that we are starting a new beginning of answered prayers and if He says He’s beginning to answer prayer it will be our fault if we don’t pray. I am going to pray this year like I’ve never prayed before and I’m going to lead you into praying like you have never prayed before because this year we are going to have giant testimonies. (Amen!) Let me hear a giant ‘Amen’ to that one. (Amen!)

Our God is a God of purpose. Everything He does has a purpose behind it. Everything He created, He created for a purpose. The Songs of Solomon 2:12 made it clear to us that birds were created to sing. Psalm 94:9 tells us that the One who created the eye, shall He not see? The One who planted the ear, shall He not hear? In other words, He made eyes to see and ear to hear and some eyes will see the glory of God this year! (Amen!). And some ears will hear good news all through the year. (Amen!) If you are one of them let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

Psalm 51:15 David said, Lord open thou my lips and my mouth shall show forth Thy Praise. It means the mouth is meant to praise God, not just to eat, not just to talk but principally to praise God and if your month is still talking, let my hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

. Everything God created, He created for a purpose – legs to walk so that we can go and spread the gospel of Jesus and to dance to glorify His Holy Name! Hands so we could clap, so that He can hear the sound of our clapping hands so that we can lay them on the sick so that they can be healed … but the ultimate purpose of all His creations is to give Him pleasure. Rev 4:11 He said He has created all things that were created and for Thy pleasure… and for Thy pleasure… Rev 4:11 read it in Yoruba. He created them so that they can give Him pleasure. He made me to give Him pleasure, He made you to give God pleasure and I want you to lift your hands to the Almighty God and make a solemn promise and say, “Father I will give You pleasure throughout this year. I will give you pleasure for the rest of my life. I will give You pleasure! So shall it be in Jesus Name.

Is.55: 12 gives us a strange insight into what God had created. It gives us a great insight, it said even mountains and hills shall sing and the trees shall clap their hands. In other words, if human beings will not sing, if they will not clap, God has made a reserve provision that mountains and hills shall suddenly begin to sing and the trees will clap their hands. But God is not going to replace me with trees! Put your hands together and give the Lord a real big clap and shout unto Him with a loud voice of triumph! Thank You Jesus!

So we find that our God is a God of purpose and the main reason He created everything is for His pleasure therefore, If there is anything that He created that is not fulfilling His purpose it upsets God. I created you for a purpose. Why are you not fulfilling your purpose?

In Matt. 21: 19 He came to a fig tree expecting to find fruit thereon because fig trees are supposed to produce fruit so that people can eat. He got to the fig tree and found no fruit and cursed it. In Luke 13: 6-9, He tells us the story of another fig tree. He said the owner of the garden came to his garden and found a fig tree that had been there for years and was not producing fruit. He said to the vinedresser “cut it down!” It’s not fulfilling its purpose! Cut it down!” but the Gardner begged – “give just one more year!” I pray that God will not cut you down this year in Jesus Name! He created us so that we could give Him pleasure. He saved our soul so that we could go and bring other souls into the Kingdom. He expects you… at least one person per month to be saved by you! He expects that next month now when you are coming you will not come alone to the Holy Ghost Service.

 

He created you to give Him pleasure so when anything is not fulfilling the purpose for which it was created He gets upset. Now this explains His eagerness to reverse what may seem to be irreversible. For example when you go through the Scriptures you will find Him again and again opening blind eyes. Every blind man that came across His path He opened their eyes. In Mark 10: 46-52, He opened the eyes of Bartimaeus. In John 9: 1-7 the man who was born blind, He gave him brand new eyes. Mark 8:22-25 they brought a blind man to Him. He took him outside the city; He spit on his eyes, touched him and said, “what can you see?” He said, ” I can see men walking like trees.” He said, “No, that’s not what God created your eyes to do! Your eyes are not to see men like trees!” so He give him a second touch and the man began to see clearly. God is going to give somebody a second touch today! (Amen!)

In Matt 12: 12, they brought a man who was blind and dumb. He healed him so that the blind and dumb both spoke and saw. He opened blind eyes everywhere He found them. He’s going to heal your eyes today, in Jesus Name! He made the dumb to speak. Everything that had been blocking your mouth that had not allowed you to praise God the way you ought to praise Him, He shall remove tonight, in Jesus name!

So we discover that whenever something fails or is hindered from fulfilling its purpose. God regards that as an insult to Himself. He regards it as an affront to His majesty. He had said and some of the things He said I think I better read this one to you. Is.46: 9-11 God was speaking and He said:

Remember the former things … I will also do it

In this passage, let me tell you ten things God said quickly just to let you know why He feels insulted when what He has planned is being thwarted.

Number one, He said ‘I Am God.’

Number two, He said, ‘I am the only God.’ so when you find any crazy man somewhere whether near Ibadan or in Ikot Ekpene saying he is God, just know that they are either drunk or mad.

Number three, He said, “I am incomparably God; there is none like me.

 

 Number five, He said, from ancient times I have already spoken about things that are not yet done. For example whether the devil likes it or not myself and at least two or three other people here tonight – we are gong to see year 2004. “Oh you are just starting year 2003!” it doesn’t matter I’m going to see the next one if the Lord tarries. He said, Things that are not yet done; I talk about them long before.”

Just before the Congress, I had a phone call from Mr. President: My wife will be coming to represent me. Will there be a place for her to sleep? I said God told me 14 years ago that one day the President is coming to worship here, I had built the Presidential house 14years ago! I had built it when nobody believed that a Christian can ever become a President in Nigeria! You want me to tell you something else? He has told me one day not just the Nigerian President but Presidents from all over the world, they are coming here to attend a Congress! How many of you will be alive to see that day? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Number six, He said, “I say my counsel shall stand.” I say it shall stand! My counsel is that your eyes shall see. Even if they are blind, they shall open. My counsel is that your womb will produce children (Amen!) Even if they say it is dried up, it shall come back to life. (Amen!) My counsel is that your legs will walk and dance for Me. All those who call you cripple now, they will soon be surprised (Amen!) He said, ‘my counsel shall stand.’

Number seven: He said, ‘I will do all my pleasure.’ how many of His pleasure shall be done? All! I can’t hear you!… How many of you know that it is the pleasure of God that your tomorrow will be all right? And He says I will do all my pleasure! All! All! Not some! All my pleasure shall be done!

 And then He went on to say – number 8. He said. ‘If need be I will bring a bird from the East or from a far country just to make sure that my purpose will come to pass. If I have to use a bird I will use a bird, if I have to use a man, I will use a man but my purpose shall come to pass.

 In number nine He said, ‘whatever I have spoken I would bring to pass.’ I rejoice with some people here today because God had already told us that this is a year of fulfilled prophecy. Have you received any prophecy from the Lord? Tell your neighbour, you will rejoice with me soon! I say you will rejoice with me soon!

 And then number 10 – He said, ‘whatever I have purposed I will do it.’ Anything I’ve just decided I’m going to do I will do it. He said, ‘I am God, the only God. None like me.’ Even just that! Isn’t that enough?

 

For example there was a time in Acts 12:20-23 a King called Herod said he’s going to stop the preaching of the word of God, he said he is God himself! And The Almighty God asked worms to eat him up alive: ‘You say you are God? Ok let’s find out who is God. He said, ‘I won’t even send soldiers to kill you, I won’t send another king to defeat you in battle. I will call on my smallest creatures, the worms, and I will tell them to eat you up alive!’ That is why I pity all my enemies this year because they are in trouble. Oh, oh they are in trouble! I mean they are in serious trouble because if they don’t repent worms will just eat them up.Number four; He said, ‘I declare the end from the beginning.’ because the end and beginning meet in Him. He is the Alpha as well as the Omega. He is the Beginning as well as the End.

And when you read Acts 12:24 … oh thank you my Father. Daddy asked my to tell you that the miracles are continuing… we just want to listen to the Word…… for example He said there is someone here, He said your enemies will flee this year. (Amen!) He said you must not let one of them escape! (Amen!) Pursue them to the very last.

In Act 12: 24 after worms ate up Herod, the word of God that he is trying to stop, the Bible said the word of God grew and multiplied. Anybody who says he will stop you – long after they are gone – you will still be growing. (Amen!) When they have gone you will see the glory (Amen!) you will still be multiplying! So shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!).

 

You remember when Nebuchadnezzar tried to say I am like God, God said, “in that case I will teach you humility for seven years. For seven years just eat grass like an animal. You think you are wise, you think you are a great one; you are a great achiever so therefore you are like me? Ok I will take your brain away, I will give you that of an animal for seven years.’ You know the story in Daniel 4:28-37. The Bible says for seven years the king became like an animal, until suddenly he realized that the Highest ruleth in the affairs of men. When God says ‘I Am God and there is none else that should give you joy because all those who are threatening you, they are not God. All those people who have said they will stop you from progressing, all those who are sitting on your promotion this year my Father will set fire to their buttocks! (Amen!).

Now He went on to say …. You just follow me because I am leading you somewhere today, I just want to show that He is a God of purpose and what He says He wants to do He will do and then we will show you where you come into the picture somewhere later. For example He said to Moses in Exodus 3:10-12. He said to Moses, ‘I want you to go to Egypt. Go and bring my people there. Moses said,’ ah, ah who am I? I can’t do it! That king is waiting for me to kill me!’ God said, ‘I will be with you.’ Is there anybody here that is sure God will be with him or her let me hear you say ‘Amen!” (Amen!).

 

 

And then God went further to say, ‘When you have brought the children of Israel out of Egypt they would worship me on this mountain.’ They were still slaves in Egypt but Daddy said “they will worship Me on this mountain.” Once He said that one, He got ready to make sure that everything possible will be done to bring that to pass. When Ephraim- Pharaoh said it is not going to happen, God drowned him. Everybody that will say you will not worship God this year, they will drown! (Amen!). I say Pharaoh shall drown! (Amen!) God had said it before! I believe this year He will bring that one to pass. (Amen!)

When the Red Sea blocked the way and said, “You are not going! You will not get to the mountain to worship God!” my Father sent the East wind against it. Oh the story is there in Exodus 14. He sent the east wind against the Red Sea. The Bible says that when the Red Sea saw the east wind coming he fled. Every Red Sea blocking your way in this New Year they shall be hit by the East wind in Jesus Name! (Amen!). And they shall be separated so that you can pass through in Jesus Name! (Amen!).

And then the children of Israel passed through the Red Sea and then God spoke to Joshua “Joshua, Moses has done his bit, he’s come to his rest now, it’s now your turn, you will take the people into the land and divide the land for the people.” And Suddenly, Joshua came across the wall of Jericho and the wall of Jericho said, “you are not going anywhere!” and God said, “that’s fine! I will come down myself.”

You know when the preacher was preaching this evening; I was so tremendously blessed. He was talking about one of the reasons why we should praise God, and he called it Divine Presence… that God is even present at all! And when God is present, anything can happen. That’s why the only thing I will not want to happen to me and that is I do not want God to leave me alone. There is somebody here; God will never leave you alone (Amen!).

Joshua saw the man and he drew his sword: Are you for us or are you for the enemies?” And the man he saw spoke and said “This wall is too thick for you to handle and yet I have made my mind up, I have spoken, that these people you are leading they are going to worship Me on Mount Horeb so I’ve come to take charge of the whole operation.” This year it is God Himself that will take charge of your own operation (Amen). Every wall of Jericho in your life is going to fall! (Amen!) If only you can open your month and shout a big Alleluia. (Alle!)

Now on one occasion, God said to Jonah, “Jonah go to Nineveh and go and preach to them,” Jonah said “No way, I am not going to Nineveh at all. I will go to Tarshish” God said “I have spoken I said go to Nineveh” and he said “no I am going to Tarshish”. How are you going to go to Tarshish? Are you going by land? You will discover that the earth is Mine. And the fullness thereof. Are you going by Sea? Ah I am the one who said let there be Sea. Or you want to fly. Oh, you will discover that’s my territory.

So Jonah tried to run and my God said, “My purpose shall come to pass!” So He sent a storm and then when the storm came and they woke up Jonah, “we believe what is going on … are you the reason why we have a storm? He said, “yes, I’m the reason! God sent me to go and preach, I said I am not going…” “What shall we do?” “He said, “kill me! Throw me into the river! I am not going to preach! I will drown instead!” God said, “Jonah, you are joking! I have said you will go to Nineveh to preach. Die, you will not die!”

Three is somebody here tonight, you are not going to die until you do what God asks you to do (Amen!). If you are the one shout ‘Alleluia!» (Alle)

 

So he told a fish to swallow him. Swallow him but don’t digest him, he is not your food. I just want to keep him in prison. After three days and three nights Jonah said I want to die but death did not come. Ok God I’m ready and then God spoke to the fish in Jonah 2:10 “go and vomit him, get him out of prison now because he is ready to My will now”. How many of you have made up your mind, you will do the will of God this year? You will come out of prison this year (Amen!). Every form of prison that the enemy has put you in, you will come out this year in Jesus Name (Amen!).

 

And when the fish landed him on the beach – because God told the fish “The boy can’t swim. Don’t vomit him in the sea take him to the beach. I just want my purpose fulfilled that’s all! Then in Jonah 3:1-4. God said Jonah will you go and preach now? He said, “I will go!” The purpose of God in your life shall be fulfilled in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Now, Where do you come into this picture? You see because the army that God raised up is an army that had not fulfilled its purpose before it was slain. That’s why He raised them up: He said, ‘You haven’t finished your job!” That’s why when some people say to me “Thank God you have arrived!” I say, “God said I have not started! When I start you will know.” Some people are just about to begin their life now. (Amen!) When Daddy told me that the Special Holy Ghost Service is going to be entitled The Beginning of Greatness – I danced! Because I can see around me a lot of great people….. Some of them are 70 years old. Some of them are approaching 80 and some of them are just getting ready to die. You are joking! You are just about to begin to lead! (Amen!) And I can see some messengers, some typists, some people that they think, “Well, I will just manage to survive…” I have good news for you! Greatness is coming your way! (Amen!) I say greatness is coming your way! (Amen!)

 

Where do you come into the picture? Number one: God loves you so much – let me repeat that one – God loves you so much. Tell your neighbour: God loves you so much, God loves me so much’’God loves you so much that if you die without fulfilling your purpose he will raise you up again! He said it in John 11:25. He said, ‘I am the resurrection and the life if any one believe in Me though he were dead he shall live.’ Even if you die before you fulfil your purpose, he will bring you back to life.

Oh, in Acts 14:19-23. They stoned Paul to death; they dragged his dead body to outside of the city. They thought “ah we have finished with him!” but the wind blew, the wind blew… God said you have not finished your job boy and he woke up again. The interesting thing is when he woke up; he first of all went to another town so that the enemy will think, oh they have buried him. Then he came back, to that very town where they stoned him and ordained elders to continue the work that he had started.

All those who think you have finished; you will surprise them this year (Amen). I say you will surprise them this year! (Amen!)

 

In John 11:43-45. Lazarus had been dead for four days, but God said I’ve not got all the glory I want to get from your life. So after four days He said, “Come back to life!” Three are people who will believe in me because of you. There’s a song we used to sing it says “the world will glorify God because of me” ……If you believe that the world is going to glorify God because of you, let me hear you shout Alleluia. (Alle!) God loves you so much that if you are alive and thank God you are alive you will not die until you fulfil His purpose for your life. It does not matter the odds against you. He said in John 11:26 He said if you believe in Me and you are alive you will not die… until His purpose for your life has been fulfilled!

In I King 19:1-8, Jezebel said to Elijah by this time of tomorrow your head will be off. Elijah ran. When he became tired he said to God “kill me! Let me go now! Do not let me fall into the hand of Jezebel” God said you have not finished your job! No I am not going to kill you. I am going to feed you!” God is going to feed somebody double this year (Amen). You cannot die until you have fulfilled the purpose of God for your life this year. (Amen!)

 

Some weeks ago, I was telling my children some of things I have gone through, just to show you can’t die until God says it is time. One of the stories I told them is very long time ago and I was still a very small boy. I went to the farm with my mother and my sisters and there is a particular tree that has leaves, that when the leaves drop down and dry off, the stalk of the leaf is like the what you call this thing you use to beat drum…. “Kongo .. What do you call that one? … “kongo is Kong; drum stick, that’s the drum stick of the Africa drum, just exactly like that! Some of you will know the tree I’m talking about so because I was a little child, oh, my sisters gathered some of these drumsticks for me, so that when I get home I can get a calabash and begin to beat and we were returning home, and we got to a river, the last river before we get home, which is where everybody will take their bath. We put everything down, took our bath at the shore, and then we got dressed, It was a big river, It s still a big river, and the bridge on it is a tree that the farmers cut and rolled over it, you must know how to balance yourself on that tree. No two people can cross; it’s just for one fellow. How many of you know the kind of bridge we are talking about? (Okay)

So I was on the bridge balancing very well on the way, suddenly I remembered my drumstick and I turned. My drumstick! The next thing I landed – Boom! – In the river! And it’s a deep river! And there is no man around just my mother and my sisters and none of us could swim. My mother said to my sisters’ “get him! Every one of us! (Because I’m the only boy) we will all drown here! It’s either you go and get him or we all drown here!” And then they were there, searching for me where I landed, not knowing that the river has already carried me downward. But as the river was carrying me down, somehow my hand grabbed the tree, a small tree that was growing in the river and I held onto that until they found me. To know how strong that tree was, when they tried to get me out, the tree came out with me (laugh) let somebody shout Alleluia!’ (Alle) .By the time they got me to the beach I was unconscious, I was drunk with water. At that very moment a man came, saw what had happened and began to do First Aid. And water was coming out from my mouth, from my nose, from everywhere. By now my mother was almost crazy with fright; the sisters were already weeping. But all of a sudden I came back to life that’s why I’m standing before you today! Tell your neighbour, ‘I will not die!’ I am going to live to declare the glory of God!’ If you believe that say ‘Amen!’(Amen!)

 

God loves you so much that if what you are doing now … if you think you are succeeding, that you are doing very well and yet what you are doing is not according to His Perfect Purpose, He will disturb everything. Elisha was doing very well; he is the son of the richest farmer in the village. His father has twelve tractors and many, many servants. He was doing very well but God said, “I do not create you to be a farmer. You are going to be the most powerful prophet that I created in the Old Testament. So in 1 Kings 19:19-21 a man came and threw his mantle on him and everything changed! And by the way those of you who come to Divine Encounter, that is what we will be talking about on Monday. If you think you have succeeded and yet you are not in the perfect will of God, the full purpose of God for your life is not yet fulfilled, He is going to change everything and interrupt everything.

When I was a student at University of Nigeria, Nsukka about some forty years ago now there was an old man there – 2.00 am, he will come and bother me when I am studying: Please my son, explain this thing to me.” I looked at this old man, “Papa what are you doing here, studying mathematics at this age?” he will say, “Please my son please!” I kept on helping. One day exam was nearer – Papa don’t bother me today o!’ He said, “my son I will bother you! Let me tell you my story.” He said, “I was a senior tutor, senior tutor then, means he had done Grade 2 and got Cambridge combined – combined – he was a Senior Tutor in a Grammar School. And then one day, one of the student that passed out through him became a graduate and came back and became the Principal and that boy now sent Papa on a particular errand and said, “hurry up, hurry up old man!” and Baba said, “Joseph! Whatever the name… I was a Senior Tutor here when you were a student! The boy said, “that was then! This is now!» That is when Baba said I will go to University …. You are a graduate? I will also become a graduate.

Whatever it is going to cost there is somebody here who is going to reach the top! (Amen!). You will not die until you reach the top! (Amen!). Whatever God has to do to get you to the top, you will make it to the top! Even if right now you are about dying, God will reverse the irreversible! (Amen!) You are not going to die until you reach the top. Even if you are already dry bones my Father shall reverse the irreversible!

So what is God’s purpose for your life? it’s not possible for me to finish that one tonight. I will just tell you a few, just to give you a hint and prepare you for next month. Number one, before God formed you in the belly He has a plan, a purpose, a program for you. Jeremiah 1: 4-5, He said, “before I formed you, I knew you, I set you apart, I programmed you!” I know the Bible says ‘I ordained you….’ but the modern language is’ I programmed you…’ because this is the Computer Age He said before I even formed you, I programmed you that you will be a prophet or a voice to the Nations.

 

Let me tell you brothers and sisters, like I told you, those of you who were there on Tuesday of the Congress, when God made you, he made you a world champion. In Genesis 1:26 he made you a world champion! Tell your neighbour: “you are sitting next to a champion. I may not look like one but you are looking at a world champion!” I know some of you will say me? World Champion? What are you talking about? I just remember that God calls things that be not as though they were and whatever He says shall come to pass (Amen!). How it will happen, leave that to Him!

He called Abraham in Genesis 17: 1-5, He said, ‘You are going to be the Father of Nations” At a time when the man was barren! One of the stories that I am sure you’ll be interested in hearing has to do with one of my house helps. Any time I travel and I come back and I share the testimony of what has happened, she will say, “one day I will also go abroad.” and all other house-helps will say ‘Amen!” We will see how you will do it! Maybe you think they will ride bicycle there!”. And one day we just said we want to go to Israel, all those who are interested in going to Israel should put down their names. She said, “one day I will go to Israel.” and you remember God said that when I want to fulfil My purpose I can bring a bird from the East or bring a man from a far county somehow before I even knew what was happening an American just saw this lady, you want to go to Israel? She said, “yes I will go there! I will go there one day!” He said: “Put down your name!”

The one that will help you so that the purpose of God for your life will be fulfilled, if he is in Australia, God will bring him. (Amen!) If he is in America, God will bring him here, if he is in Kuwait God will bring him here (Amen!). I could remember when we were having the Holy Ghost Night in Israel and the Power of God came down and joy filled the place and people were dancing, people from all over the world and they were dancing like people were dancing during the Congress and they formed a circle. They were putting one hand on somebody in front and they were all dancing round, and who did I see among them dancing more than anybody else? My house-help!

.How many World Champions are here? Come on let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ Alle. Now He just didn’t make you a World Champion, He made you an undefeated World Champion. Romans 8:37, He said you are more than conquerors because of him that loved you so much, He said there may be many battles for you to fight, but you will win all of them. (Amen!) Psalm 34:19 “He said many are the afflictions of the righteous but The Lord delivered him from them all”.

 

 

 

 

 

There is somebody here tonight who is more than a conqueror. (Amen!) let me hear that fellow say ‘Amen! (Amen!). He made you a world champion, an undefeated one – not just undefeated, you are undefeatable! (Amen!). He said in Isaiah 54: 17, He said there’s no weapon fashioned against you that shall prosper! If he’s talking about you let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ He said in Deuteronomy 28: 7, He said all the enemies that rise up against you shall be smitten before your face. This year you will not do the fighting! God will do the fighting for you. Every enemy that comes against you one way, they shall scatter in seven ways. (Amen!) He made you a world champion, an undefeated world champion, an undefeatable world champion, a forever champion.

 

In Deuteronomy 28: 13, he said the Lord shall make you the head and not the tail so you shall be above only and never beneath. Do you know you are looking at somebody who will never be an ex-champion? I will never be an ex-champion! I’m going to be a champion forever! I say am going to be a champion forever! (Amen!). Not only did He make you a forever champion – beautiful as that is – He made you an ever-rising champion, going from one championship level to another level of championship.

You know I told you I used to be a Boxer and so I took great interest in boxers and there is a particular boxer who is about my age-mate, his name is Mohammed Ali. I followed his progress. When there was nobody else to beat at the light heavy weight level – he has finished every one of them there – he climbed to the heavyweight. And when he got to the heavyweight there was somebody there who was champion. His name was Sonny Liston, they called him ‘the Bear’ he was so big, so strange. Mohammed Ali said… at that time he used to be called Cassius Clay – he said I will beat the bear. Everybody thought he was going to die. You against Sonny Liston? You a small boy? take a look at the man! He said, “I will finish him!” I want you to open your mouth and say “I will finish every Goliath in my path! Anybody that stands between me and my crown I will finish!

 

I remember the day as if it were yesterday. I watched the fight on television. Oh how happy I was when he knocked down and knocked out the Bear. You are not going to wait till the end of the year before you defeat your Goliath! Before this month ends you will already be reigning as a champion. When you come next month by the Grace of God, God will take you to a higher level of championship.2 Corinthians 3: 18 talks about God transforming us from glory to glory.

 

Let me conclude because of time – because God loves you so much, He made you a world champion, an undefeated world champion, an undefeatable world champion, a forever world champion, an ever-rising champion and an untouchable champion. You know the Bible says, in Ephesians 2:4-6, He said we are seated with Christ in the Heavenly Places. And according to Ephesians 1:20-22 the Bible said we are seated with Christ far above principalities and powers. Mohammed Ali always told those people he fought, he said, “Look at me, am I not handsome? your blow can’t even touch my face! By the time I finish with you, I will still be looking as beautiful as before.” This year, some of us will be so victorious – without a single scar! (Amen!) if you believe that will be you portion let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ ALLE.

I have more to say but I have to stop now. We will pick it up form there next month. Don’t worry by the time you come you will have giant testimony. (Amen!) tell your neighbour “I will not fail again!” say it as if you mean it! One more time! “I will not fail again!” Glory be to God! Yes, go ahead; give the Lord a big hand for that! give the Lord a big hand for that!

The only one that can be a loser, forever loser, he’s the one who hasn’t got Jesus Christ by his side because what makes us an everlasting champion is like Paul said “I can do all thing through Christ who strengthens me.” if you have no Christ, the enemy will knock you down, grind your nose in the dust. That’s why I’m calling on those of you who are not yet Born Again – you better come and surrender your life to Him! You cannot face the world without Jesus Christ! Impossible! you face the world without Jesus Christ, you will be an ever-lasting defeated champion. But if you want to surrender your life to Jesus Christ so that you too can say ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! come quickly now and give your life to Jesus. I will count up to ten; I am not begging you to come. If you don’t want to come, sit down there. I am calling on those who want to become champions, those who want to live for God, those who want to be strengthened by the Almighty God…. come and surrender your life to Jesus now! I will count up to ten, after that, I will pray

 

1,2,3,4,5, today is the day of salvation, the Almighty God is willing to accept as many as will come onto Him. But you have to come. If He asks you to come and you refuse He can’t force you. If you want to stay in darkness, that’s your headache, if you want to continue to be defeated that’s your own choice, but there is a God who is willing to fight your battles for you if you are willing to surrender your life to Him. 6 now! 7, 8 now those of us who are already in front, let’s begin to talk to Jesus Christ and say, “Lord, I’ve come to surrender my life to You. From now, I will do Your Will just forgive my sins. Give me a brand new beginning. From now on I will obey You, I will do your Will!

Now if there is anyone who is still coming, the door of mercy is still open but it will close any moment from now. I know some of you might be coming from a long distance but you have to hurry up. You can’t drag your legs when you are coming to the cross for salvation! The Bible said you must seek the Lord while He may be found. Call on Him while He is near…. that means He may not be near for too long.

 

9 now! 9! Anyone who wants to come – get here right away and begin to call on Jesus Christ. Say,» I’ve come to surrender my life to You. have mercy on me!, forgive all my sins! Save my soul! Save my soul from today! I will do Your Will! Just have mercy on me! have mercy on me!”. The rest of us let’s stretch our hands toward these people, and pray for them, that the One who saved our soul, will save their own souls also! Let’s pray for them brethren! lets pray for them!. And if you are still coming, hurry up now before it is too late! Lets pray for them brethren! lets call on the Almighty God for them – that the Almighty God will save their souls… and if there is anyone still coming, you better get here before I finish praying! Come and call on the Almighty God for the salvation of your soul! Call on Him now! Thank You Jesus! Blessed be Thy Holy Name! In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!). Father, we want to thank You, because You are such a good God! Accept our thanks in Jesus Name. We thank You on behalf of these Your children who have come forward now. Every one of them, receive them in Jesus Name! Save their souls! Lord forgive all their sins! Cleanse them in your Blood! Father I pray, that beginning from today, their names will be entered into the Book of Life! From this day, anytime they call upon You, answer them in Jesus Name! In all their lives, reverse the irreversible in Jesus Name! (Amen!) thank You my Father – in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen). Praise the Lord! Alleluia!

Now I rejoice with those of you who have come forward today. You are the new members of the Kingdom of God in the New Year. Heaven is rejoicing and we are rejoicing with you also! Congratulations! Now I promise you I will be praying for you so I need to know your names, your addresses and your prayer requests. Write the correct addresses because when I ask God to send your miracle it will be sent to the address you put down. So if you will follow that brother to my left or the one to my right whichever is closer to you, they will lead you to where some Pastors are waiting to collect this information. We will wait for you to come before we continue. So you can begin to go now. Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause as they go! Let’s glorify God!

Thank God you are a champion. There is no way you can die until you reach your goal. Thank God that your enemy is in trouble this year. Thank Him because from now on it is going to be well with you. Go ahead praise the Lord! Lets begin to bring our prayers to a close. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed! Now we want to pray like champions. Let me say it before we start – at any time you get fed up, stop and sit down and watch the rest of us … the rest of us, this year we are going to pray until heavens come down! So if you feel like sitting down, fine! No problem! If you want to kneel down, no problem! That may be a good excuse to fall asleep! The rest of us lets stand on our feet. Lets stand now.

 

First of all, in order to pull down the wall of Jericho, let me hear you shout a big ‘Alleluia!’ One thing about champions is that they know how to fight. Your first prayer tonight: you are going to lift your voice to the Almighty God. You will say Father, anyone or anything sitting down on my promotion set fire to their bottom!” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God!…. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed! Amen.

Father, send confusion into the camp of my enemies! let them begin to destroy themselves!” Now go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! …. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen).

I want you to look at me. When you want people to clear out of the way for you, you do like this … you are going to do that in faith. You will say: in the Mighty Name of Jesus, ways open, ways open! Ways open! Go ahead pray! In the Mighty Name of Jesus we’ve prayed! (Amen).

Remember the Bible says it shall be to you according to your faith. you are going to find a space no matter how small it is because you are going to use your legs… you are going to say: in the name of Jesus, every door the enemy has shut against me, I kick you open, I kick you open! So shall it be in Jesus name!

 

 

If you can reach the ground where you are, you are going to bow down and slap the ground. Say “ground! Hear the word of the Lord! Swallow my problems now! I command you swallow all my problems!”…… Thank You Jesus! Glory is to Your Name! Thank you Father! In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And then you are going to prophesy again … In the mighty name of Jesus, wind blow my blessings in! Go ahead, talk to the Almighty God ….. In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The Word of God says, if you believe, and doubt not, you will eat the good of the land. You will say to the mountain: mountain be though removed to the sea…. Today, we have learnt that we are champions, created champions, world champions. with that confidence. I want you to mention every mountain in your way and say in the mighty Name of Jesus, mountains move! Move! Move! Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!).

How much blessing you can take depends on your capacity to receive. The woman who went to the well, went with a pot but the Almighty God is willing to give even a well to you! Cry to the Almighty God! Say, Father! Enlarge my coast! Lets cry to the Almighty God! Thank You Father! In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!).

Then you will cry to Him and say, “Father, visit me this year, let this year be my year of visitation!” Lets call on the Almighty God! ….. Thank You Father! In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

There is a group of people that we always forget to pray for …. Several times people want to help you but they don’t have what to help you with therefore you are going to cry to God and say, ‘Father all those who will help me, provide for them, all those who will lift up my hand, Father provide for them! Bless them! provide for them! Let them have abundance! All those who love me, those who want to assist me! Father, help them! provide for them!, prosper them!, give them abundance and bless them Lord! Glory to God forever more! Amen! Thank You Father! In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Glory be to God! Now will Pastor Onofegara come to lead us in offering, I want you to shake hands with three or four champions and say,” how are you champion?”

It’s only the dry bones in the valley that got up and became an army. Even though the prophecy went out to the whole world it is only the dry bones that were in the valley that were affected. I want to advise you this year – don’t miss any of the Holy Ghost Services . There is certain anointing that the cassette cannot carry to you. When the Word of God begins to blow it’s only those whoa re there at that moment who will catch it. If I were you, I will make up my mind right now this year nothing is going to stop me from being where God wants me at the right moment. I believe God wants you to be at every Holy Ghost Service and He wants you to come with your friends, your relatives and even your enemies.

While we wait for those wha are telling their testimony after which we will listen to 2 or 3 let me share with you the prophecies for the year 2003. Some of them, not all of them because some of them are, I believe, for my own information only. Let’s start with those for individuals:

 

The Lord said that this year for some people it will be the year of recovery and relief and the word ‘recovery’ there could stand for recovery of health, recovery of material things that the enemies has stolen from you. It could mean recovery of anointing; it could be the gift of the Holy Spirit. For some people it is going to be recovery and relief

Secondly the Lord said for some people it is going to be the year of Help From Above. Help will come their way and they will know that this is definitely from God.

And then thirdly, He said this is going to be a year of fulfilling prophecy for some people. And I know I will be one of such people in Jesus Name Amen.

Number four; He said it will be for some people it will be the year of restoration and growth.

Then number five; He said for some people it will be the year of abundance.

And then for our beloved Country Nigeria the Lord said it is going to be the year of bumper harvest for hard working farmers. He also said that some evil, some demonic politicians will fade away. And then He said a new breed of politician will begin to gather momentum. There are one or two others for Nigeria that I cannot say now.

Then on the International scene, the Lord asks us to pray against increase in floods. He also said there would be dramatic improvements in the economy of some struggling Nations. Then He said some fires of war shall be put out before the year runs out.

 

The prophecy for The RCCG will be told to those who should hear them.

WHO ARE THE CHAMPIONS?

7th of February, 2003

Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ The Bible says there is a time for everything. We have heard tonight from the throne of God and I’ll be failing in my duty as your representative to God and as His representative to you if I don’t tell you that this hour is an hour of an appeal. (Amen!) So before we go forward at all, before we do any other thing we must be satisfied in our spirit that our appeal had been granted.

So we are going back to God! We are going to tell Him, “Father, the reason I am appealing to you is that I have no one else – no one else! Nowhere else to go! And You are my Daddy! If You don’t grant my appeal, nobody else will help me!! Let’s go the Almighty! “I have no one else! Who do I have in heaven but You? Who do I have on earth but You? You are my Daddy! If You don’t grant my appeal, where else will I go? Where else will I go? Who is the one that will help me if you don’t? Lord, God Almighty! I am appealing tonight because You are my Daddy, You are my Daddy, You are my Daddy! I have no one else! I’ve already said bye-bye to the friends of the world. I said I will never go back to the world. I can’t even go back to them! They already know me with You! Lord, I have nowhere else to go! You just have to help me tonight! You have to help me tonight! You have to help me tonight! You are my Daddy! You are my Daddy! You are my Daddy! I have no one else! I have no one else! You know all things oh Lord! I have no other God! You know I have no charms in my house! You know I have no ‘babalawo’ that I rely upon! I have no one else Lord! I am appealing to You tonight because You are my Daddy, I have no one else! You are the only help I have! I am lifting my eyes unto You tonight from whence will my help come? My help can only come from You! You are my last bus stop You are my last bus stop! I have nowhere else to go! I have no one else to turn to! Lord! I have no one else! You are the only Daddy O have! You are the only Daddy I have! You are the only one! You are the only one! You know it Lord! You know! You know! You know! You know I have no one else! You know I have no one else! You know I have no-one else! No one else to turn to! No one else to turn to! Only you! Only you! Only you! Only you! Only you! Only you Daddy! And you know it! You know it Lord! You know it! You know it! You know it! You know everything! You know everything! If I have anything that is hidden you know it! If I have any other help somewhere, you know it! And I am appealing to you tonight because You are the only one I have! You are the only one I have! You are the only one I have! You are the only one I have! You are the only one I have! You are the only one I have! You are the only one I have! And I am appealing to You Lord, You are the only advocate I have! You are the only one and You are my Daddy! I have no one else to run to. I have no one else to run to! I have no one else to run to! I have no one else to run to Lord God Almighty! I have no one else to run to! Daddy, I have no one else to run to! I bring my case to You tonight. I have no one else to run to. I have no one else Lord! You know the secret of everybody. You know every hidden thing Lord God Almighty. I have no one else. If I have something else then don’t listen to me? If I have any other God, if I have any idol somewhere then don’t listen to me. If I have hidden charm charms somewhere don’t listen to me! If I have something else Lord God Almighty that is kept secret from the rest of the world that the world does not know about; if I’m a pretender don’t listen to me! But if it is true, that You are the only one I have, if You are the only one I trust, if You are the only one I have in heaven and on earth, if You are my only stop, my last bus stop, if You know that this is true You just must hear me tonight! You have to hear me tonight! I have no one else! You are my Daddy, Lord! I have no other one! You know every detail! That’s why I’m calling on You tonight, You know all the details! You know every secret of every man’s heart that’s why I turn to You tonight. I bring my appeal to You tonight I bring my appeal to You tonight. I bring my appeal to You tonight! Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we pray! (Amen!)

Now you go to Him and say, “Daddy, I’m not appealing to You because I’m holy. No, no, no! Is anyone holy before You? I’m appealing to You because of Your mercy – because Your mercy endureth forever, because You are a gracious God! O Lord God! Tonight I appeal to You – be merciful unto me! be merciful unto me! be merciful unto me! be merciful unto me! I appeal for Your mercy, Lord God Almighty! I come unto You tonight because of Your mercy! I appeal to You Lord God Almighty because of Your mercy! Your mercy! Your mercy! Your mercy that is higher than the heavens. I am asking that You pity me tonight as a Father will pity His son, pity me tonight Lord God Almighty because You know my frame because You know I’m ordinary dust, Lord God Almighty! I ask for mercy, mercy Thou Son of David, that’s all I’m asking for! I’m appealing to You tonight only because of Your mercy! Because of Your mercy! Lord God Almighty because of Your mercy I appeal to You tonight because of Your mercy! Oh because You are rich in mercy! Because Your mercy is as high as heaven is high above the earth! I appeal to You because You are gracious! I appeal to You because You are full of mercy! It is because of your mercy that I am coming tonight because Your mercy endured forever. That is why I’m coming to You tonight! That is why I’m coming to You tonight! That is why I’m coming to You tonight! I’m asking that You be merciful unto me, be merciful unto me! be merciful unto me! be merciful unto me! be merciful unto me! Almighty God tonight look down with mercy! The Bible says if You are to mark iniquity who will stand? who will stand? who will stand? But forgiveness is with You Lord that we might fear You Lord! Please Lord God Almighty be merciful, be merciful unto me tonight! I come to You for Your mercy tonight. Mercy! That’s all I’m asking for! Mercy! Lord God Almighty! Mercy! I’m asking for Your mercy! Be gracious unto me my Father and my God, let me find favour with You tonight, be gracious O Lord! be gracious O Lord! be gracious O Lord! be gracious O Lord! be gracious O Lord! Lord be merciful! Lord be merciful! Lord be merciful! Lord be merciful! Lord be merciful! Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

I appeal against all them in the mighty Name of Jesus. O Glory be to God! Thank You my Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Bless Your Name forever more. Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

May your appeal be granted you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Everyone of your appeal, may it be granted in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

Wow, what a message! Thank You Jesus! If you appeal to Caesar, to Caesar you go! I’ve appealed to Jesus, to Jesus I go! I’ve appealed to the Judge of the whole Universe, to Him I will go!

Ah!!! I thank You Jesus! I just feel like going home now. It’s just been wonderful! You know among all the things that the preacher said is the fact that the higher court can reverse the judgement of the lower court and you know we’ve been talking about reversing the irreversible. Everything that the devil has done in your life shall be reversed tonight! (Amen!) OK there are occasions when you wish that you are just a member of the choir – just sing, sit down and be blessed! And the choir tonight have been wonderful – Glory be to God! All of them but especially Province 2, beautiful singing Thank You Lord!

Ezekiel 37:9-10

9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

Last month we learnt that God’s purpose for your life will be fulfilled (Amen!) That God is so determined to see that His counsel for your life is fulfilled that even if you die prematurely, He will reverse the irreversible, bring you back to life and fulfil the purpose. (Amen!) That even of you have become dry bones He will still breathe on that dry bones so that dry bones can come back to life. And then we discovered that you were created to be a champion, a world champion, an undefeated champion, an undefeatable champion, a forever champion, an ever-rising champion, an untouchable champion! Where id the champion that we’ve been talking about her tonight? I didn’t hear a champion shout! (Amen!) Tell your neighbour, “You are sitting next to a champion.”

So tonight, we want to find out who then is a champion – who is a champion? Onea champion is a crowd-puller. Take the Lord Jesus Christ for example, everywhere he went, a multitude followed Him. In Matthew 8:1 it says, as He was coming down from the mountain, ‘a great multitude followed Him.’ A champion is a crowd-puller. If we talk about a champion today, even of you talk about an old champion like Mohammed Ali for example, if we announced last month that he will be present at the Holy Ghost Service this month,, that he will be coming this month, the whole of Nigeria will be present! Because a champion is a natural crowd-puller.

In 1 Sam.22:1-2, the Bible tells us that David ran to hide in a cave, the cave of Abdullam. Several people gathered themselves to him. Anywhere you find a champion, there will be a gathering and according to Isa.60 very soon you too will become a crowd puller. (Amen!) Isa.60: 3-4, the Bible says. ‘And the Gentiles shall come to thy light and kings to the brightness of thy rising.’ This is not talking about everybody, this is talking about champions, the champions who are here tonight! It said ‘the Gentiles shall come to thy light and kings to brightness of they rising.’ It said, ‘lift up thine eyes and see that they gather themselves together, they come to thee, thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.’ There are people her tonight, people will come from China and they will call you Daddy. (Amen!) People will come from America and they will call you Mummy. (Amen!) They will come from Australia, Kuwait, they will come from Russia and they will say you are now our parent! Who am I talking to tonight? You better let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) How is it going to happen?

The Lord said in Acts 1:8, it said, you will receive power when the Spirit of God has come upon you and then you’ll become a witness – in Nigeria, in Africa and to the uttermost parts of the world! That’s why you must go and preach. That is why from today you won’t keep your mouth shut – every one you see, you will tell them about Jesus! And now that God has heard your appeal everyone you preach to from tonight onwards will be saved in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

A champion is a crowd puller! Some of you when you are coming next month, now you will come with a hundred people! (Amen!) Because you are a crowd puller. Because you are a champion!

Number 2: A champion is a champion producer. Every animal produces after its own kind. A dog will produce a dog, a goat will produce a goat, a champion will produce a champion. Do you know from now on, all your children will become champions All the children that you have already born, children you are yet to born, they will all become champions (Amen!) Why? Becos a champion produces champions ! In Acts 4: 13 the Bible said, when they beheld the boldness of Peter and John and they looked at them and they knew that these people are aggressive and unlearned men, they took note that they had been with Jesus. . Then the original champion had produced other champions!

When you go to 2 Sam. 23:8-39 the Bible talks about David’s mighty men. And it began to talk about one of them that he was fighting from morning till evening. He fought so hard the sword stuck to his hand – that is when he finished fighting he couldn’t drop the sword. These mighty men came from the vagabonds that were with David in the cave of Abdullam. Those who were in debt and those who were in distress, those who had become completely destroyed… so they gathered to David. David, the giant-killer and within a short time they became mighty men. Because you are here today, before long, you shall be called a mighty man of God. (Amen!)… a mighty woman of God. If you believe that you better say the Amen loud and clear. (Amen!) Not only that – you will be producing champions yourself!

Isaiah. 60:21-22 says, ‘Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time.’

Do you know every house group; every house core group will become a mighty church. (Amen!) Do you know that out of every church shall be born 100 churches? (Amen!) Every worker shall become a provincial Pastor. (Amen!) Every Sunday School Teacher shall become an AGO. If you believe that you better shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

How shall this be? Mtt.28: 19-20. It said, go and teach all nations. I know some people are going to ask me – if this is going to happen, then what’s going to happen to the provincial pastors, what’s going to happen to the area Pastors? They will become national overseers all over the nations of the world. If you receive that you better say Amen! (Amen!)

A champion is a crowd-puller, a champion producer…. According to 2 Tim.2:3 a champion will be someone who is able to endure hardness as a soldier of Christ. A champion is not someone who will fall asleep before the Holy Ghost Service begins. A champion is not someone who will shout one or two Alleluia! (Alleluia!) and then be shouting the rest in the dream land! A champion is someone who is a warrior. In Eph. 6:12 it said, ‘be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might!’ A champion is a warrior, tough fellow, strong because he is always full of joy because Nehm.8:10 says, ‘the joy of the Lord is your strength.’ Joyful people always end up as champions.

When you see people who are always smiling, always rejoicing, always dancing, you’ll discover that they are not usually sick – I am not a medical doctor but from my experience as a Pastor I have discovered that many of such people always end up with hyper tension! But those w ho are joyful, joyous in the Lord, always singing, always dancing, , always praising the Lord, somehow the power of the Almighty God will just continue to work in them. That’s why Phil.4:4 says, ’rejoice in the Lord always and again I say, rejoice! ’ In 1 Thess.5:16-18 Paul gives us the secret of a champion –’rejoice evermore, pray without ceasing, in all things give thanks…’ in other words whatever may be happening – just keep on rejoicing. Is there a champion in the house tonight? Let me hear you make a joyful noise unto the Lord!

Thank You! Those of you who have attended the School of Disciples – Glory be to God!, I taught you that one of the weapons of our warfare is joy! If you are joyful, extraordinary strength comes. And I gave an example, I gave the example of a Brother John – not the musician – but he will fit the picture very well. John comes home from work very tired and the mother said, “John, how now?” “I’m very tired Mummy, I want to sleep.” “Won’t you eat before you sleep?” “No, no, no…. I’m too tired. I just want to sleep!” “Ah, John, you are not even removing your clothes?” “Oh, mama, I say I am very tired.” So John lay down on the bed. Just as he was about to fall asleep – Lizzy that John wants to marry – came knocking at the door and John heard. “Good evening ma. Is John at home?” John said, “Whose voice is that?” Suddenly he jumps off the bed! “Ah, Lizzy!” I”I was studying the Bible in the morning … and I found something that I didn’t understand and I came to ask you if you can explain it to me?” “Of course! Of Course I can explain! Sit down first. What will you eat? What will you eat? Mama do we have meat in the house so I can cook for Lizzy?” And Mama said, ‘John, I thought you say you are tired? Ah! Ah! Ah! John will say, “Mama, you don’t understand!” The joy of the Lord is going to come into the life of somebody here tonight! (Amen!)

A warrior is what a champion is. He is strong, tough, he can endure hardship, he is strong in the Lord because he is filled with the joy of the Lord! He rejoices even in adversity! In all things he gives thanks! A champion because he is a warrior has a fighting spirit. Size doesn’t matter when we are talking about a champion. He can be small, he can be big, he can be thin, he can be fat. What makes a champion a champion is something inside, something that the Bible calls the inner man! As a matter of fact the resting place of championship is inside the bones. That is why God saw the dry bones and said even as long as the bones are there I can still do something about it. That’s why the Bible says in Eph. 3:16-21 Paul prayed that you will be strengthened by the might of the Holy Spirit in your inner man!

Your size is not the important thing. You can be a small boy and be a champion. You can be an old man and still be a champion. What is important is your inner man. In 1 Sam 17:32-33, David said, “I will go and fight Goliath” Saul said, “You can’t do it. You are a small boy” He said, “You are mistaken sir! You are looking at a champion!” In verses 42-47 Goliath looked at David and said, “You want to fight me? You small boy! And David said, “By the time we are finished we will know who is a small boy” Tell the fellow sitting next to you, “I may not look like it but I am a champion! I am a champion!”

I’ve told you the story before. We send some people to go and conduct a crusade somewhere in Ogun State and the masquerade came out to disturb the crusade. They began to flog people, scattering those who were gathering and one little girl, on little girl said, “Daddy said whatever we bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven, whatsoever we lose on earth shall be loosed in Heaven. He didn’t say it is the Pastor alone who will do it!” Somehow she had learnt that in that particular town, if the masquerade comes out and the drum tears the masquerade will not see the following year, so she moved aside from the crows and said, “I decree in the mighty name of j, every drum begin to tear and one after the other, the drums began to tear and every masquerade ran away! Every drum that the masquerades blocking your way are dancing too, shall tear tonight in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

A champion was a fighting spirit – ready to fight anyone, any Goliath whatever the size. A champion is always confident. He knows who he believes. He knows who he trusts, he knows who is behind him.Phil.4: 13 one champion said, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! That means I can reach my goal! That means I can succeed. That means I will be a champion forever. You better say it loud and clear: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

A champion is a confident man. Why? Because of John 4:4 it said: ‘greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.’ He said, “Little children, little children, you have already overcome, you have won even before you begin to fight because greater is he that is in you that he that is in the world! Tell your neighbour, there is no way I can ever fail! You better say it loud and clear! Psalm 27:1-3 David said, ‘the Lord is my light and my salvation, whom should I fear’? And he said, just tell me who is that fellow who is big enough to face the One that is my light and my salvation? In Daniel 3:18-19 Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego said to Nebuchadnezzar – they said there is no need wasting time answering you sir, we just want to tell you one thing only – the god we serve is able to deliver us and he will deliver us. How many of you believe that the Almighty God will deliver you from your enemies – you better say ‘Amen!’ loud and clear then!” (Amen!)

A champion is always confident. They are sure that they will win. A couple of years ago we were preparing the ground here for the Holy Ghost Arena. It was a massive jungle! There were rivers there – very deep rivers and so we went there and I told my people – we must get this work ready because we are using it for Congress. So they started. They brought in all kinds of caterpillars. They tried. They tried – to weeks to go, the place was as far from ready as it could ever be – so I took the people there just look at the place. The engineers were there – all the big, big people were there and I said, that tie we were use to calling it Festival and I said, “We are holding the Festival here.” One of them said to me, “Sir, you want to hear the truth? And I said, “Yes.” He said, if the Federal Government with all the money at their disposal and all the engineers in the Ministry of Works, if they move in here, they can’t finish this work in three months so talking about this place being ready in 2 weeks, let’s forget it! I smiled. Two weeks from today we will hold the Festival here. He said, “Yes sir, if you refuse to listen to the truth, what can we say?” Is there anybody here tonight who believes that irrespective of what the circumstances may be saying, before the end of this month, you will reach your goal? (Amen!) You believe that, stand on your feet and shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Ten days later the Arena was ready! I mean – the arena was ready! All of a sudden engineers became champions – we did everything contrary to what the book said. We buried rivers – we did everything that nobody will think is possible because a champion will just stand firm and say, “This is what is going to happen. God help me! “Next time…” Now tell your neighbour – next time you see me, I will have a giant testimony” If you believe that say, ‘Amen!” loud and clear! (Amen!)

A champion looks forward to the next fight! After he’s won one fight and dances a little, then he gets ready for the next fight. 1 Sam.17:34-36 David said, I have fought a lion and I defeated him. Then I fought a bear and I defeated him. Let this giant come, it will be my next opponent and you know, why you always find a champion always looking forward to the next fight is because he knows that another fight is going to mean another victory. In 1 Sam. 17:39 David said the One who delivered me from the lion, who delivered me from the bear, shall deliver me from this Goliath. The One who gave me the first victory, and the second victory, will give me the third victory. The One who had given me victories up till now, will give me yet another victory! How many of you are expecting more victories this year? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

When I was in the primary school meat was eh..eh….. a very rare thing in my house. There are people here who don’t know the meaning of scarce… In our house we get plenty of meat at Christmas, Easter and then once in a while when there is an epidemic among the chickens! Is anybody like that here who knows what I’m talking about? But anytime we did exam in the primary school, by the grace of God, I will come first and when I get home my mother will want to show her appreciation. There’s a woman in our compound who was a seller of dry fish and in selling her dry fish there are always crumbs. She will sell the real one to those people whoa are rich. The crumbs she will put them together in little, little heaps and sell them for penny, penny and my mother will go and get one heap of crumbs – that’s to celebrate my coming first! So I look forward to the examinations because if exams come and I come first I will eat fish crumbs. Glory be to God! For ever more! The next examination you are going to take is going to lead you to higher heights! (Amen!)

A champion looks forward to the next fight because he knows that it is already written “No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life.” He knows that it is written: “You are more than a conqueror because of Him who loved you.” And he knows that it is written,: “God is going to take you from glory to glory, from victory to victory. If you believe that say ‘Amen!’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

A champion is always willing to go one more round. You know, if you know anything about boxing when there is a championship fight they will probably say 15 rounds. They will fight the first round – 3 minutes and then they will go and rest for 1 minute and they will come and fight another round. And now while the fighting is going on at times they will beat the champion very well and batter him very well. He will be very tired. If he gets down there, he sits down to rest for 1 minute and they ask, “Do you want to continue … or call it quits?” Let’s tell the other people ok you have won. We ill fight another day….” A champion will say, “No, just one more round… let me fight one mote round.” “But your eye is almost closed…. everywhere bleeding…” “Yeah, I understand – just one more round!” The champion is always wanting to go just one more round because he knows that within just one more round anything can happen.

The Bible says, many are the afflictions of the righteous in Psalm 34:19 –‘ many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him from them all.’ Prov.24:16 must be talking about championship fight. It said ‘a just man falleth seven times and rises up again.’ I believe there is someone here that the enemy has knocked down again and again and they are going to rise today (Amen!) One more round and they are going to win! One more prayer session! Another call upon the Almighty God! Another appeal to the throne room of Heaven! And somebody will go home a triumphant champion! (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

By the way, all kinds of healings and miracles are happening. I just didn’t want to stop to announce but…. Maybe you will see some of them when we finish – you will see for yourself.

Who is a champion? A champion is one who remains on his feet when the fight is over. When two boxers are fighting, one fellow hooking and jabbing and hooking and jabbing…. But then at the end of the fight, it doesn’t matter how many times you had beaten me – the important thing is that when the fight is over, I’m the one standing and you are the one down. Somebody is going to put his leg on the neck of Satan tonight! (Amen!)

In 1 Sam. 17:50-51 after all the boasting, after all the shouting, it was Goliath on the floor and David standing on top of him. Tonight every Goliath in your life is going to fall. (Amen!) – the Goliath of sickness, of poverty, of sorrow, of failure, they will fall tonight! The Bible says in Psalm 20:7-8 Let me read it to you because it’s talking about somebody here tonight: Psalm 20:7-8

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.

How many of you will be standing upright when the battle is over? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

The Bible says in Ephesians 6:13, it said, ‘having done all to stand…’ When I first joined RCCG almost everybody then was a prayer warrior. People knew how to pray! Some people still do. I didn’t know how to pray. I was coming from a background where the Pastor does all the praying and when he finished praying if you have not fallen asleep you will say “Amen!” but he mustn’t hear you say the ‘Amen’ loud. And when I became born again, I joined the Redeemed, I saw the people praying. If they finished the service in those days, they will just say, “Go and pray!” and nobody will stop you. You stop when you like. And within five minutes I’ve said everything I wanted to say: “God please solve my problem – You know that’s why I’m here. Solve the problem please quickly and then I will remember my brothers and help them too if they have problems, help them solve their own problem and then Our father which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, they Kingdom come etc …” and them I lift up my head nobody has moved; in fact the people are just warming up so I go back again and repeat what I said and look up again but nobody is moving and I don’t want to be the first person to get out. What are these people saying? What is it they …

So finally I decided because I noticed there was a particular brother his own case was different and I said, I know what I will do, I will come to church early, watch where he will sit and sit next to him; whatever he’s saying, I will be repeating because I want to learn how to pray. I said, I will come and sit beside him and I began to hear him: Lord Jesus, King of Kings! ( I will repeat, Jesus, King of Kings!) Lord of Lords! (Lord of Lords!) Rock of Ages! (Rock of Ages!) I AM THAT I AM! (I AM THAT I AM!) … and he is still on that one for 15 minutes! … Lion of the Tribe of Judah!! (Lion of the Tribe of Judah!) the Ancient of Days! (the Ancient of Days!) and then after that one he then moved on and on and on.

So I thought he was my champion until one day something happened. I discovered who is the real champion. We prayed as we used to pray. We were there on our knees for more than one hour. By now some people were already getting up sp we were able to get up and go home and then we came back for evening service and there was a man who had been on his knees since morning! He did not move an inch! He was still going on! That’s a champion! When everybody had surrendered, he was still going on. A champion is going to be born tonight! (Amen!) Someone who will pray until Heaven will open! Someone who will hold on to the Almighty God until something happens! Who is that champion that I’m talking to tonight? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Who is a champion? A champion is the one who laughs last. It doesn’t matter what the enemy may be saying before then – no matter! No matter you knock me down ten times? No problem – I jump up, I still keep on fighting. When the battle is over you are down and I am standing on top of you and then it will be my turn now to laugh. Somebody is going to go home tonight shouting for joy (Amen!) If you study the story in 1 Sam.17 you will remember that when the Philistine champion came out, when Goliath came out and began to boast and began to speak, the Bible says the children of Israel were dismayed and they went to go and hide. But by the time you get to 1 Sam. 17:51-52 the Bible said, when the Philistines saw that the champion was dead they fled and then the children of Israel arose and shouted for joy! All the champions here tonight, let me hear you shout for joy! Why do I ask you to shout? See, many people have complained that we shout too much! My answer to them is ‘the winning side is the shouting side!’ Only winners shout!

…. As for me I have nothing to shout about! Ah! Ps.20: 5 says, ‘weeping may endure for a night but joy is coming in the morning.’ There is somebody here tonight, this is the last time you will ever weep. (Amen!) Because your joy is coming in the morning. Jesus Christ said in Acts 6:21, He said, blessed are they which weep now for they shall laugh. Joy cometh. Oh it doesn’t matter if you will hold on to the LJC your joy is around the corner. (Amen!) You are going to laugh last. (Amen!) But he who laughs last – is the one who laughs best!

I’ve told some of you the story before. There was a girl that a boy said, ‘I’m going to marry you.’ And he deceived her to such an extent that they fixed the day of the wedding and they were to meet at the registry for the wedding. The girl has got the wedding dress; got the friends together and they went to the registry and they waited and waited and waited and the boy didn’t come. Can you imagine that kind of sorrow? The day that was supposed to be the greatest day of joy became the day of greatest sorrow! The girl nearly died of sorrow! She nearly had a mental breakdown!

But somehow she survived, became a Christian and held on to the Lord and one day she met another man, a soldier in the Army and she got married. Now the boy who was to marry her also joined the Army and they didn’t know about it but one day the husband of the girl was appointed a Military Governor and every Military Governor must have somebody they call the aide-de-camp who must open the door for his wife and… the aide-de-camp was the boy who disappointed this lady before…. And he had to open the door for the First Lady. He had to shine the shoes of the First Lady…. All those who say you will not reach your goal they are coming to bow down before you! (Amen!)

Who is a champion? A champion is the one who sings the victor’s song. I’ve said that man is a singing animal. We love to sing. We sing at every occasion, If there is a marriage we sing. A baby is born – we sing. Somebody is becoming a chief – we sing. Somebody dies – we sing and when you listen to the kind of song somebody is singing you can tell what is happening to him. If you hear somebody singing “we shall overcome, we shall overcome, we shall overcome, some day …. You know that fellow has just lost a battle. But if you hear somebody saying: “Winner oooo, winner! Winner oooo winner! …Jesus You don win o….” you know immediately that that fellow has won. I mean, if two football teams want to play – one is your team, the other is the opponent and you see your team coming back quiet like the dead… not a word .. .….you know what happened! You don’t need to ask them. If you want to ask – all you need to ask is by how many goals did they defeat you. But when they are coming and they begin to sing, “now the battle is over, now the battle is over, we are more than a conqueror…” all you need to ask is by how many goals did you defeat them? That is why whenever we say let everybody shout Alleluia! And your neighbour keeps quiet, you know what is happening – you will know you are sitting next to a loser!

Thank You Jesus! When you go to Exodus 16:1-11 You’ll find Moses singing a song. How could he sing? Because the enemy he saw yesterday he never saw them again and I know there is someone here today, the enemy you are seeing now, you will never see them again. (Amen!) They asked David why are you always singing? Why are you always dancing? Why are you always praising God? And he says, “Ah you don’t understand. I’m a champion! I’ve fought many battles, not only lion and bears not only Goliath, even my own brothers, even my father-in-law, I’ve fought many battles …” that’s why he wrote in Psalm 89:1, he said, ‘I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever…’ He said, ‘with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.’

Pastor Adeboye why do you sing? Why do you dance? Why do you carry tambourine about? Why are you asking people to shout Alleluia!? I’ve fought many battles. The Lord had brought me thus far. He has turned me to champion, and has surrounded me with champions! Let me hear somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

I think I better let loose some champions, some champions who will shout and every wall of Jericho will fall; some champion who will shout and Red Sea will open, some champions who will sing, who will praise the Almighty God so that water will come out of rock! Some champions who will praise the Almighty God! Some champions who will really shout, who will magnify the name of the Lord! Some champions who will praise Him! Who will praise Him! Who will praise Him! Some champions who will glorify the name of the Lord, Glory be to God!! Thank You Jesus! Blessed be the Name of the Lord!! Oh, Thank You Father! Thank You Father! Thank You Father! Thank You very much!

Just remain there .. just before the guitar man began to play God spoke to me and said, “Son, you’ve done your bit. Move out of the way, let me do my own!” Let’s begin to praise Him! Let’s dance before Him! Let’s magnify His holy Name and let us see what the Lord will do here tonight! Come on let’s begin to praise Him.. are we ready?

I want us to do it this way…. because only individuals can tell how good God had been to them, I want you to think of a song of your own. You will sing your own song. I will sing my own song, we will combine all of them – it will become a joyful noise unto the Lord of Lords!! So you sing from the bottom of your heart – sing a joyful song unto the Lord! Magnify His holy Name. Sing unto the Lord a new song! Sing unto the Lord a new song!……. Thank You Father! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus’ mighty Name we worship!! May the Almighty God receive your praise in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Let’s remain in an attitude of worship. We may sit down.

Daddy spoke to me and said, “Son, my ears are open. I will answer prayers here tonight.” I just thank God for that. That is why I want quickly to give an opportunity very quickly to those who are yet to be saved. The Word of God says if I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me. The Bible says, the hand of God is not shortened that he cannot save, neither his ear heavy that he cannot hear, but your sin has separated between you and your God that he may not hear. If there’s any one here tonight. with this awesome presence of the Almighty God – if you are here tonight and you are not yet born again; if you are here tonight and you are still living in sin; if you are here tonight and you are a backslider and you want to come back to the Lord; if you are here tonight and you want to surrender your life to Jesus Christ – begin to come now. I’m going to count up to 10. We cannot afford to keep God waiting for too long. He’s waiting to hear our prayers. Any one who is here who is not yet born again and you want tot surrender your life to Jesus, come now! I will count up to ten. By the time I say ‘10’ if you are not yet in front I will know you are not serious.

That’s if you want to give your life to Jesus. Come now! 1… 2…. 3…. 4…. Oh this is the day of salvation! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! 5…Oh nobody can become a divine champion unless they are born again….6… Those who will become champions of the Most High, they must first of all be His children. They must say bye-bye to a world of sin. You cannot belong to the camp of the devil and belong to the camp of God. But His mercy endureth forever. If you come to Him tonight He will save your soul. If you know you are coming you better hurry up! Now I know some of you are coming from a far distance but you better hurry up now. Oh Thank You Jesus! for salvation. Come and call on Him for the salvation of your soul! Just keep moving! Hurry up! 8… now. The gates of mercy are still open but they can close any moment!

Those of you who are already in front begin to talk with Jesus Christ. Begin to pray and ask Him to save your soul. Ask Him to forgive all your sins. If you want to surrender your life to Jesus, you better hurry up now. This is the hour of salvation. God is waiting for you! If you are sitting down there and you are living in sin, on a night like this, when even a dead man can feel the presence of God, then there must be something seriously wrong with you! Tell the devil to leave you alone! That you want to go and surrender your life to your God! That you want to go and give your life to your Maker – the one who can turn you to a champion! Hurry up now – this is the final count! 9…now. If you know you want to come, you better be on your way, you better hurry up before we finish praying!

And the rest of us let’s begin to pray for these people; let’s stretch out our hands towards them and intercede for them, that the Almighty God will be merciful unto them, that the One who saves us will save them also. That God will be merciful unto everyone of them,. Those of you who are already on the way make sure you reach here before we finish praying. Those of you who are yet to start, you better begin to run – now – this is the day of salvation! The Almighty God is calling you to have the last laugh – He wants you to become a champion! The devil has tormented you long enough! It is time to say bye-bye to Satan. It is time to say bye-bye to a life of sin. It is time to come to the Almighty God and say: I surrender my life to You! Hurry up now! Now before it is too late! Come now the Lord is calling you! Come now the Lord is calling you! He wants to save your soul!.. Thank You my Father!

O Lord God Almighty have mercy! Have mercy on these Your children. Save their souls! Save their souls as You saved our own souls, save their own souls also! Be merciful unto them! Be merciful unto them! Be merciful unto them! O Lord be merciful unto them! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Father, I just want to bless Your Name for Your Word that has gone forth and for these people that have responded to Your Word. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) They’ve come to You Lord for the salvation of their souls. Father, receive them (Amen!) Save their souls! (Amen!) Forgive their sins (Amen!) Wash them clean in Your Blood (Amen!) Write their names in the Book of Life (Amen!) Father, I pray that beginning from today they too will become champions of God. Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) ‘Amen!”

Those of you in the front let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) I want to rejoice with you because you have taken a very important step tonight. And I can assure you heaven is rejoicing over you and the rest of us are also rejoicing with you. We’re happy that you took this decision Glory be to God! Clap for Jesus! Go ahead clap for Jesus! By the grace of God from tonight onwards I will be praying for you so I need your names, your addresses and your prayer requests so I can continue to tale your requests tot God. That’s the reason why you should put the correct address because when I ask God to send your miracles it will be sent to the address that you put down. If you look to my left you see a brother waving a piece of wood. If you look to my right you see another one. Which ever of them is closer to you, follow him. There are some Pastors waiting for you. They will collect the information I asked for before they ask you to come back and join us. We’ll wait for you before we begin to do anything serious. So you can begin to go! Let’s give the Lord a big hand!

Advice of a champion. David said, ‘Bless the Lord O my soul and all that is within me bless His holy Name. Bless the Lord O my soul and forget not all his benefits and then he began to list all his benefits.’ I want you to sit down and meditate for few minutes and think of all the battles God has fought for you and all the victories He had given you…. And to each one say, Thank You Lord!’ Thank You for saving my soul! For not allowing the enemy to triumph over me. Thank You that those who have been pursuing me have not caught up with me. Thank You because all those who thought they would be burying me have fled! that everyday I grow stronger! Count your blessings one by one and then begin to thank the Almighty God. Thank Him for all the blessings. Let’s do that for some minutes as we wait for our brothers and sister to come and join us.

Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ If somebody they tell you that whatever you ask from God tonight, He will do it for you! (Amen!) If somebody says so will you pray or will you keep quiet? Are you ready to pray? Stand on your feet and shout another big Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Your first prayer – loud and clear – is, Father, you remembered the dry bones, remember me.’ Today let’s talk to the Almighty God…. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

So you will say to the Almighty God, Father, You treated those dry bones as special. Treat my case as a special one tonight… Let’s talk to the Almighty God … treat my case as special , treat my case as very special one .. in Your own wonderful way treat my case as special. Give me a special attention tonight. Treat me as if I were the only one here tonight.. Give me special attention tonight to the glory of Your Holy Name! Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And you will lift your voice to Him and say, “Father, you commanded the wind and it obeyed you. Tonight, command blessings into my life! Command life into my situation! Go ahead talk to the Almighty God In Jesus’ mighty Name we pray! (Amen!)

An incident happened this week that is just passing. Somebody pursued a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and when he caught up with the fellow, he said, You Redeemed, we pursue you, we pursue you , we have not caught up with you yet, he said, But we’re coming..” I want you to talk to the Almighty God – the anointing to outrun my enemy, give to me tonight!” Let’s talk to the Almighty God – the anointing to outrun my enemy – everyday, for the rest of my life – the anointing to outrun all my enemies – give to me tonight! Glory be to God! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Let God arise and His enemies be scattered, let God arise and His enemies be scattered…..

I want you to call on the Almighty God – say, Father, every enemy of myself, my family, your church, the nation – scatter them tonight!” Let’s talk to the Almighty God! Let God arise and let all my enemies be scattered… In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Cry to God and say, “Father, all those who think I am finished – surprise them!” Talk to the Almighty…. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Brethren this is a very special month. There are thousands of children of God who are fasting and praying this month. God Himself is very, very sensitive to us this month. Talk to Him and say, “Father, this month, every day, give me a breakthrough..! Let’s talk to the Almighty God! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now I want you to think of 7 people precious to you, and mention their name one by one before God and ask the Almighty God to turn every one of them to a divine champion! Talk to the Almighty God! Every one of them – you mention their names – that the Almighty God will turn each one of them to a divine champion … In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you go before God and present your own personal request. You know the areas where you must have help now. And you say, “Father hasten to my help. Make haste, make haste to help me in this area, in this area, in this area….. we give You glory, we give You honour, we give You adoration my Lord and my Saviour. Thank You! for answered prayers. Thank You Jesus! Let’s begin to bring our prayers to a close. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Father, we have had testimonies before but beginning from now – giant testimonies – give unto us in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You! my Lord glory be to Your Name! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

If you believe that let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Let’s be seated for a while….. Has anybody been blessed thus far tonight? Any champion here tonight? Let me hear a champion shout of Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Glory be to God!

While I was in my prayer room the Lord said that there’ll be some very special cases that will be attended to tonight. If you are one of them as soon as you hear your case please come forward. …

The Lord said there’s someone here who had a dream and in the dream you find yourself tied down like a goat. The Lord says He wants to set you free tonight, so you should come so we can pray for you.

A second group, the Lord says there’s someone here tonight you once made a charm to tie the hands and the fortune of somebody you hated, and now you’ve discovered that your hands and your fortune are tied. But you have repented and God wants to loose your hands and He wants to loose your fortune. If you are the one come forward so that we can pray for you.

The Lord says there’s someone here tonight you cursed your rival in order that you might marry the man that you were rivaling about, Now you have married the man you want to marry but there is no issue, no joy, no peace and God says because you are here tonight he wants to take care of that situation so if you are the one come!

the Lord says there’s someone here tonight He said, you buried a charm at your rival’s working place so that the blessing that should be going there should be coming to you but He said your blessings are flowing over to the other side. The Lord says because you have repented He wants to neutralize that charm if you come tonight.

Then the Lord said there is a student here, you use a charm that is supposed to quicken your brain nut instead of the brain being quickened now the brain is almost completely at a standstill. If you are the one come quickly because God wants to settle that matter too.

Then the Lord said there’s someone here tonight when things were hard for you, when things were very hard for you, you said, I wish I could just die” But now things are better and yet death now is knocking at the door. The Lord wants to cancel that statement you made so you better come quickly.

Finally the Lord said there’s somebody here suffering from what could be called a blood-sucking disease. He wants you to come so He can stop that bloodsucker right away.

If you are one of the various groups that have been mentioned you have to move on your feet. I will count up to ten. If you are not here by ten I will take it that you are not really serious. 1… 2… 3…4… 5…. 6…. 7… Those of you who are already coming you should thank God that He is taking a very special interest in your case tonight. That He picked you out of this great crowd to deal specially with your case, I think you should begin to praise Him, you should begin to thank Him – the One who knows what nobody else knows, picked you out of this great crowd and said, I want to settle your case! I think you should begin to thank Him.., you should bless His Name in advance for something special that your life this morning, so you should begin to praise Him. For those of you still on your way it is 8 now .. You should praise Him from the bottom of your heart – that out of this great crowd You really remembered me Lord! Let’s praise Him! Let’s magnify His holy Name! Father we thank You, Father we magnify Your Holy Name .. It’s 9 now so if anybody is still on the way and you are not here now…. Then you need to really quicken your steps.

Brethren let us stretch our hands and pray for these people and ask the Almighty God who has been so merciful to them to settle their cases once and for all – to forgive every sin they have committed and deliver them from every yoke of bondage, to change every curse to a blessing…… Let’s pray for them for one more minute – Let’s intercede for them like champions Let’s glorify His Holy Name. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

In the mighty Name of Jesus! Merciful Father, I bless Your Name! Thank You for this special group that You have decided to just be merciful unto tonight. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) I plead the Blood of the Lamb over them. The Blood that conquered Satan let it conquer for them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) I take authority over every evil force operating in their lives and decree right now that they will loose these people and let them go in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) I decree that every curse in their life be changed into a blessing in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) that every evil charm be neutralized in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) that everything that is not of God affecting their lives will be silenced in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) I decree that the tide will turn for these Your children now in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) I curse every blood-sucking demon operating in their lives in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) I decree healing for you. (Amen!) I decree deliverance for you. (Amen!) I decree progress for you. (Amen!) I decree prosperity for you. (Amen!) I decree success for you. (Amen!) So shall it be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Every plan of the enemy concerning you shall be nullified in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) So shall it be In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) God bless you – you can dance back to your seat.

Now those who were called out tonight will be going home rejoicing, why don’t you rejoice with them by giving the Lord a big round of applause. ..Amen!

… let’s give our thanksgiving to the Almighty God, our God has been very good to us. this night has been a very special night indeed. If February is like this I’m just trying to imagine what March is going to be like. God has heard my appeal tonight. I know the devil is in trouble now and I believe that from now on I’m going to be a stronger champion than ever before. I believe I have something to thank God for tonight so while the ushers attend to us, as soon as they’ve attended to you, you can dance. If you want to remain seated and dance on your seat it is okay. If they haven’t reached you remain seated so that it will be easy for them to locate you. Let’s go ahead and just bless the Name of the Lord! Almighty God A big shout of appreciation….

Alleluia!

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

THE BEGINNING OF GREATNESS

9th of March, 2003

Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) If somebody is ready for greatness let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Among great people there’s always great people. When you bring all great people together, someone will still be the greatest. So whosoever is going to be the greatest, let him or her shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Glory be to God!

Now let’s go before the only One who can make us great and worship Him because He is worthy to be praised! He is worthy to be worshipped. The reason He found David and decided to make him the greatest king of Israel is that David said, “My heart is fixed within me. I will praise the Lord.’ I want you to join me as we worship the real kingmaker, the One who is the original Majesty. the One who can make and unmake; the Rock of Ages himself, let’s worship Him………Holy, holy, holy….. Let’s go ahead and just worship the Holy One of Israel, let’s worship the King of Kings! the LORD of Lords!, the I AM that I AM!, Ancient of Days! The unchangeable Lord! Let’s worship the King of Kings! the LORD of Lords!, the I AM that I AM!, the Ancient of Days!, the Unchangeable Lord! – Let’s worship Him! He is worthy to be worshipped! Let’s magnify His Holy Name! Worship Him! Please worship Him! Adore Him! Magnify His Holy Name! O Bless the Holy One of Israel! Thank You Father! …. Thank You Jesus! Glory be to Your Name Lord! We bless You! We worship You We give You all glory! We give You all honour! Thank You Jesus! Father, we worship You! King of Glory! We adore You! There is no one like You! You are greater than the greatest! You are better than the nest! You are stronger than the strongest! You are richer than the richest! You are wiser than the wisest! You are the Ancient of Days Himself! You are the Unchangeable Lord!! You are the Alpha and Omega!! You are the beginning and the ending! You are the One who is, who was the One who is to come! The Almighty! Surely You are wonderful! You are the Counsellor! You are the Mighty God! You are the Everlasting Father! You are the Prince of Peace! We give You glory! Accept our worship in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Thank You for what You have already done. Even if we go home now You had already done marvellously. But f, You have not finished with us yet. You will do greater things still! Accept our worship in Jesus Name! Father, in the mighty Name of Jesus release Your children into their greatness (Amen!) Everyone here present, release into their greatness Lord! (Amen!) Every obstacle to their greatness destroy O Lord! (Amen!) Let it be well! Let Your Name be glorified (Amen!) Thank You Daddy! Glory be to Your Name! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout another ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

They told me that by 10.30 pm 3 babies had already been born – 2 boys and 1 girl. Let the brothers shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)! And let the sisters shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!).

I believe that my time has come. I don’t know about you but I believe that my own time has come. I just want to thank the Almighty God for the 2 messages we have already hear. Nobody gave anybody topic. I just said, “feel free!” But look at the two beautiful messages we have heard. Look at what god did through Pastor Joe Olaiya. Look at so many people who had been robbed of their greatness, who in just one simple message, their greatness had been restored to them! What a great God we serve! And then come my-in-law. Ah, oh, my Lord….. …Well Your in-law is great, you must be great. I think great people give daughters to them so if my in-law is great I must be great

Most people when they have done very well I will say, “well done! Congratulations!” And I stop because the Bible says a flattering mouth worketh ruin! I’ve been listening to you now for more than 20 years as far as I’m concerned tonight’s sermon is the best I’ve ever heard and for your information I’ve given my secretary an assignment. Every sermon you have ever preached |I want a copy. Isn’t the Lord good! Thank You very much! Thank You so much! Maybe I was the only one blessed. May be that’s why the rest of you are not …… if you too are blessed why don’t you give the Almighty God a very big round of applause?

That was something! You know in the entire message there was one I got that was greater than every other thing said. Well, one was great but then one came on top of it. I just want to repeat those two quickly.

One of the reasons why David became great is that he survived the wilderness. I’ve never thought along that line before – never. And you know the good news about that is this – the fact that you survived till now, till today – all your greatness has started. (Amen!) That you are still alive now in spite of everything that the devil has done! Oh your greatness has come! If you believe that Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) And then the greatest of all that I got, I’m talking of my own now, is the new definition of grace. Grace, that grace is help from above that enables you to be higher than your equals. If those are the only two things that I hear this weekend, my weekend is made because I know I’m going to be the highest and I already know all that I need. What do you need? (Grace) I can’t hear you? Loud and clear! (Grace) Shout it loud and clear (Grace!) Thank you very much sir. Thank you, thank you very much! Ah Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus!

But for the fact that this is not an ordinary Holy Ghost Service As a matter of fact this Special Holy Ghost Service, it is a special, Special Holy Ghost Service because Daddy told me so. Because the theme itself, the beginning of greatness, when God told me that was the theme, that was enough to shake anybody. And I said why this theme and He told me, up to now you’ve been telling your children we have not started. Now we are about to start. How many of you are going to climb with me? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) But for that fact that this is an extra Special Holy Ghost Service after those two sermon I would have come, we would have prayed, we would have done one or two other things and then go home but what God wants to do this weekend is one of such that none of us will ever forget for the rest of our lives.

Now when God wants to speak, He normally speaks just once ‘Let there be light.’ And there was light. ’Let there be water…’Let there be fish…’Let there be animal… and such. God had spoken once, twice have I heard that power belongs to God. If you hear it the second time it is because it is an echo for whenever God wants to speak specially about something then He may just repeat Himself like Jesus Christ said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you.” If you hear God speak three times about something you can be sure that that must be an extraordinary situation.

Someone said God normally speaks once. When He speaks twice that is grace, if He speaks three times that is Amazing Grace. So then what will you call it if g speaks four times? And yet God repeated Himself four times on one issue – Habakkuk 2:4, Rom.1: 17, Gal.3: 11. Heb.10: 38 – four times God said, “The just shall live by faith. The just shall live by faith. The just shall live by faith. The just shall live by faith.” That’s why I want to beg you tonight – every doubt, every unbelief, keep it away from you! Every word spoken here tonight, every prophecy that had come from men of God who had spoken before every prophesy that will from now on, receive them by faith because the just shall live by faith. May I hear you say after me: ‘The just shall live by faith.’ Say it one more time! Make it loud and clear! That is very important because extraordinary things are happening here tonight. As I will be speaking to you tonight, please I want you to believe whatever God says, for example, He told me this weekend He’s going to heal 70,000 people! (Amen!) – From minor aches and pains to terminal cancer! 70,000 people will be healed this weekend! So if you don’t hear me mentioning your case because how many cases are we going to mention out of 70,000? Even if we don’t mention anything at all remember the just shall live by faith!

We want to talk about the beginning of goodness or maybe you want tot put it the way I put it as soon as I got it from the Lord: My beginning of greatness.” I’m talking of my own now. “My beginning of greatness… I’m taking my text from 1 Kings 19:19-21

19 So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxenbefore him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him.

20 And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, andthen I will follow thee. And he said unto him, Go back again: for what have I done to thee?

21 And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen, and slew them, and boiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and gave unto the people, and they did eat. Then he arose, and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him.

Greatness is a process. It is not an event. We know when it starts but then it will continue until it matures. Something for example like in the story of Isaac. It told us that Isaac waxed great and then went on and grew until he became very great. Greatness is something that you start today, for somebody (Amen!) and then it will continue until the fellow concerned will become very great. And I know the somebody we are talking about now is me!

And when we talk about greatness, there are two aspects to it. There is the divine aspect, then there is the human aspectThe journey to greatness normally begins with divine choice. It’s God who will choose who is going to become great. For example, in the passage we read, if you read 1 Kings 19:15-16 you will discover that even long before Elisha knew what was happening the Almighty God had already told Elijah, this man is my choice, he’s the one who will succeed you. He is the one who will take over from you. Before you came here at all, God has decreed who will be here tonight, and He has decided who is going to become great and I believe you are one of them! If you are one of them let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

God is sovereign – He does as He pleases in the course of heaven. The Bible says in Psalm 115:3 But our God is in the heavens and he does as he pleases. It said in Rom.9: 15-16, it said, I will show mercy unto whom I will show mercy and I believe He is going to show mercy to somebody here tonight! He chooses who to make great, like He chose Abraham. The Bible just told us in Gen.12: 1-3 for no reason at all, he just said, ‘Abraham, I am going to make you great!’ I believe God is saying something to someone here tonight. I know He’s saying Adeboye! I am going to make you great!’ If you are the one He’s talking to let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Somebody said and I think it is Pastor Ayo in one of our other meetings, he said, those who walk, walk with many, those who run, run with a few and those who fly, fly alone. May you be one of those who fly in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Now when God had chosen the one that He wants to make great He will then arrange for that person to have a DIVINE ENCOUNTERMay you have a divine encounter this weekend in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Now when He arranges that divine encounter it could be directly between Himself and the one who is going to become great like Moses in the backside of the desert – and he suddenly saw the burning bush. From that moment onward the journey to greatness for Moses began. Or at times God will just send one of His prophets because the Bible says in Amos 3:7 – it said, God will not do anything but He will make it known first to His servants the prophets. In the case of Elisha, He sent His prophet Elijah to go and tell this young man, you have been chosen for greatness. I stand before you today trembling because I have a heavy responsibility because God has sent me to tell somebody you have been chosen for greatness. (Amen!) If you are that one let me hear you shout ‘Amen!’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

It is a serious responsibility because those who have this kind of encounter you are having with God are never the same again! May your life never remain the same again. (Amen!) Now once the fellow chosen for greatness had had this Divine Encounter, the CHANGES IN HIS LIFE BEGIN IMMEDIATELY. In the case of Moses immediately after he had that encounter with God, even what it was to be the rod of Moses became the rod of God according to Ex.4: 20. And I believe that today, the one that God is talking to among you, even right now as you are listening to me, your hands are changing (Amen!) your legs are changing (Amen!) your eyes are changing (Amen!) your entire body is changing! (Amen!) Your life is changing (Amen!) never again to be the same (Amen!)

Elisha, we know him to be the son of Shaphat but the moment the garment of Elijah came in contact with him he became the son of Elijah. Somebody is going to become true son of God in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

When Bartimaeus had an encounter with Jesus, the beggar immediately became a celebrity. May I tell you that many of you who came here – merely surviving, before the end of the month, divine abundance will be your portion! Are you ready for change? Are you ready for change? Let me hear your ‘yes’ Loud and clear!

Now because the change or changes must begin immediately, when the day comes for somebody to have this Encounter that will lead to greatness EVERYTHING STOPS – Heaven will stop, the Earth will stop until that particular fellow’s case is sorted out. Tonight heaven is going to stop for somebody (Amen!) How do I know that? You can take it from this story everybody know how much I love Elijah. He is my friend. If there is only one thing I am not too sure I like about him it is that he is so impatient.oh, oh, oh… he is so impatient. But look at what happened n this day – he threw his mantle in Elisha and as soon as he threw the mantle on him he didn’t wait, he was already going! He didn’t even say a word to the boy and the boy had to run after him – ‘”Ah, please sir, at least let me go and say bye-bye to me father and mother!” He said, “Did I say anything to you? Did I talk to you?” “Please sir, I know the meaning of what you have done but give me time to go and kiss my mother and father goodbye.” He said, “Go back.” And then Elisha went back.

Instead of just kissing his father and mother goodbye, he prepared a massive feast, called the whole family together, I am going now! Come and eat with me! And they ate! They finished all the cows and then he said; “Now I can go!” Do you know all the time Elijah waited, he couldn’t go because Heaven was waiting for Elisha.Heaven is waiting for somebody here today. (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) When your day comes, when your greatness is about to start like Pastor Ayo said, Samuel will not even be able to sit down. When the day of Bartimaeus came the Bible says, even Jesus stood still. Today, in the course of Heaven, whatever is happening, there is going to stop for somebody, because somebody is about to begin the journey to greatness. (Amen!) If it’s you, lift your hand and say, “It’s me!” Oh Lord, before you leave here today, may Your greatness begin! (Amen!)

And then, once He has decided this is the one I want to make great, and you know there is nobody who could argue with Him once He said you are the one; that it doesn’t matter what your friends may think. The big brothers of David didn’t like him but it didn’t matter. Even the father didn’t want to bring him forward but that didn’t matter. Once God has decided nobody can query Him. By the time you get home they will know you are already on your way to greatness. (Amen!)

Now once God has chosen to promote, THE PROMOTION IS ALWAYS RAPID and there is no end to how high He can take you. If you are able to see the drawing for this particular program you will see one man lifting up his hand there. I don’t know if the cameraman can get it and put it on the screen for those people to see. You see a man there lifting up his hands – that’s me! I said, that’s me! But if you look closer you see one giant hand holding him up! That’s the everlasting arm of the Almighty God! And when the everlasting hand picks you up, it keeps taking you higher – every day and there is no limit to where you can go! Is there anybody who is going to see me at the top? Because I’m going to the very top! If you are going to the top with me, let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) By the time the everlasting arm picked up Elisha, the son of a farmer that nobody would have heard about for the rest of his life became the controller of kings and generals – because once God has decided to promote you there is no limit to your greatness. I believe that there are people listening to me tonight, very soon the whole world will know about you. (Amen!)

By the way it might interest you to know that this program is being watched all over the world right now and very soon you will be the one they will be watching. (Amen!) Tell your neighbour “He’s talking about me now!” Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Now that is the God aspect. But then there is the human aspect. In looking at human aspect let me begin by telling you that greatness can be yours. Like I told you about two Holy Ghost Services ago, according to Gen.1: 26 God created you to be a champion – not just a champion but a world champion. He created you to be a world champion and according to Deut.28: 13 

Thank You Father! – The Lord said there is someone here tonight He said, I will cause you to forget all your years of failure. (Amen!) All your years of failure they will become a dream that has gone far….

Now, Deut. 28:13 the Bible says that God can even make you the greatest. It said, the Lord shall make you the head and not the tail. That you will be above only! In other words, it doesn’t matter how many people they gather together, by the time you’ve been together a few minutes, they will discover that you are the one above.Now greatness is available but not everybody will end up great. No, not everybody will end up great, not everybody. According to the Word of God Deut.15: 11 says the poor shall not cease in the land. In other words even though greatness is available to all, not everybody will become great. In fact Matt.19: 30 says some people may start first and then end up last. When the Bible says in Deut. 28:13 that we shall be the head and not the tail, that tells you that there will be head, there will be tail. Now what is your choice? You better open your mouth and talk now – say it loud and clear! – Don’t say I am repeating myself but this is a night of a lifetime! God said to the children of Israel, He said, As you have said it to my hearing, so will I do unto you. What do you want? Head or tail? So shall it be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Now if you have chosen to be head then you need to pay serious attention to the few things I am going to say in the next few minutes. I was trained as a mathematician and that helped me tremendously in my work with God because I know that if you are going to state a formula you must state the conditions before the formula will work. I can cause you to jump and shout and go home rejoicing just by saying the Lord will make you the head and not the tail and then you can go home and say, “Amen!” and come back next year – you are lower than before and say, “I don’t know what’s going on!” I will tell you the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so that even before the end of this month you yourself will know that your journey to greatness has already started.

In Deut. 28:1 God gave the conditions for you becoming the head. He said you must hearken diligently. Tell your neighbour – hearken diligently, for your own good – hearken diligently! I told you at the beginning that if God repeats Himself four times that must be very serious business. But I found in the Bible that this God who is not talkative, who doesn’t like to repeat himself, repeated himself seven times! Saying the same thing seven times! You know what He said? He that has ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches. He that has ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the church! He repeated himself seven times – just read the book of Revelation 2 and 3 so I want you to repeat loud and clear: “Lord, I have ears ready to hear what Your Spirit is saying to me!”

Good so who qualifies for greatness? Number one. Just from the text that we read, using Elisha as our model,the one who will qualify for greatness must be a plower. Somebody who is a plower. Who is a plower? A plower is somebody who is ready for hard work. Prov.22: 29 seeth thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings and not before mean men. I am prophesying to somebody here tonight, very soon you will be dining with kings and presidents and other heads of States. I mean they will be happy to come and eat in your house! If you are the one say ‘Amen!’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

Why must the one who qualifies for greatness be somebody who is ready for hard work? Because he is about to climb and climbing is hard work. If you want to go down – no sweat – but if you want to climb and I want to begin to climb right now, I want to go higher, day-by-day, anyone who wants to climb must be ready for hard work! Greatness is coming your way! I didn’t hear ‘Amen!’ Doors will be open unto you! But that is going to require hard work!

A plower is a man who is focused, a man of single-minded devotionLuke 9:62 Jesus Christ said“Any man who having laid his hand on the plough looking back is not fit to be my disciple.” Plowers don’t look back. Those who want to be great don’t look back at those who don’t want to go. Those who want to climb don’t waste time with valid people. Greatness is coming your way. (Amen!) People will criticize you as soon as you begin to grow, as you begin to prosper. When they find out that before you were trekking, now you have a brand new Mercedes, they will criticize you, but don’t pay attention. People have asked me again and again: so-and-so said so-and-so about you in the papers. So-and-so said this one about you on television, when are you going to reply? Me? I know where I am going. I’m going higher day by day! How many of you are ready for the climb? So shall it be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

And the plower is not ploughing for fun. He is preparing to sow. Anyone who is going to become great must be ready to sow. The Bible says that they that sow in tears shall reap in joy. Joy is coming for somebody now; I say joy is coming for somebody now! They that sow in tears, shall reap in joy! Psalm 126:5 Do you know why God said that the poor will never cease from the land? It is because the poor will not sow. The way out of poverty, and there is only one way to get out of poverty – you sow you reap and then you sow more and reap more and step by step you who used to be poor, you who used to beg before, you can eat, you now begin to feed others. I am prophesying to someone here tonight: very soon you will be big enough to feed a whole nation. (Amen!)

O Thank You Father! the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He says, I should tell you, I will give you new territory to possess! (Amen!)

And all kinds of healing are already going on of course. In fact there is somebody here God said your nose is cracked. He is straightening the nose right now! He even said that there is a young man here that your friend used to call you axe-head because of the shape of your head. He said you should tell the fellow next to you: Look at my head. Have you seen a change? Because He says He has put your head right. Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

The one who will qualify for greatness is not somebody who will just sow ordinarily. He is someone who is willing to give an unusual sacrifice. Let’s just look at Elisha. He sacrificed the oxen and plough in just one go. Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son Isaac; Solomon was willing to give Almighty God one thousand burnt offerings in one day and when God decided to make Peter great, every fish he caught that day he didn’t touch one of them! The one who is going to become great must be willing to make an unusual sacrifice and I don’t know who God is talking to, but somebody is going to the Almighty God! Father, anything you want, just let me know, no matter what, because I’ve made up my mind – greatness that is my choice. Whoever that fellow is, say it one more time “Greatness is my choice!” Say it loud and clear! Remember God is listening! You better says so that He can hear you!

Thank You Father! Daddy says there is someone here tonight he asked me to tell you, unless the sea dries, that is when your resources will dry. (Amen!) Unless the sea dries that is when your resources will dry! I receive that O Lord! Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ with me! (Alleluia!)

The reason that God from time to time will expect a great sacrificial gift from someone who is going to become great is that when God makes you great, the greatness is not for your own use alone. He blesses you so that you can be a blessing. He told Abraham, “I will bless you and you will be a blessing.” I want somebody to say, “God will bless me and I will be a blessing!” Say it loud and clear!

Thank You Father! The Lord says there is someone in here tonight, He said I should tell you there is a celebration party coming! (Amen!) And it is for you! There is a big celebration party coming and it is for you! Ah! If I’m that one I think I will really shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)!

Now Daddy says right now His angels are performing some delicate operations on eyes, in the ears, inside the brain, in the heart, in the liver in the kidneys – He even said, in the private parts – that certain operations that human doctors cannot perform, the angels are performing delicate operations. Let somebody give the Lord a big round of applause!

Who qualifies for greatness? The one who is going to qualify for greatness must be a follower, a disciple. We discover that the moment the mantle of Elijah touched Elisha, he said, “I will follow you” He said, “I will minister unto you!” The one who will qualify for greatness will have to be a follower, a disciple so that he can sit down and learn. I told you at the beginning, greatness is a process. Not just one event but a series of events. Jesus Christ said, “Come and learn of me.” The Bible says the one who is going to be great must be someone who is like a tree planted by the rivers of water. Those who will be great, they are not people who will come to the Holy Ghost Service once or twice a year – they come every month – to learn! Oh there are other places you could go where they would shout and jump without a single reference to the Bible. Oh they could bless holy water for you and tell you – this is it, that’s all you need! Holy water will finish but forever O Lord they word is settled.

The man who said they that walk, walk with many, they that run, run with few and they that fly, fly alone was speaking the truth. But then somebody added, if you want to be among the many, all you need is common sense, you don’t have to think before you walk. If you want to run, if you want to run with the few you need advice but if you want to fly you need instruction. That is why those who teach pilots who are to fly are called instructors. There must be somebody there who wants to fly! Who is ready for instruction? You need somebody to tell you one step after the other this is what to do, this is what to do. If you are willing to follow, to learn, to study, to be instructed steadily you will be surprised how high God can take you.

Somebody said, “there are two ways of becoming big. One is to grow the other is to swell. If you swell you will burst but if you grow, your greatness will remain forever. Some of you know this little testimony I’m giving. A brother who had not visited us for several years came to visit us at the camp. And then I took him to International Office and I began to show him the various offices. This one is for AGO so-so-so, this one is for AGO-so-so-so and then I came to the one that belonged to Pastor Akindele – this one for AGO Akindele… He said, “What! I know that boy! Is that not your interpreter?” I said, “Yes.” “How can an interpreter become an AGO?” I said he had become one. When God decides to promote, nobody can stop him. May your promotion become a surprise to the world! (Amen!)

Let me just share one more point and then we will conclude: When Elisha decided to follow Elijah he went and slaughtered the oxen. I was just wondering while I was studying the Word of God, why did this man, this man who wanted to follow the Man of God, the Man of God is impatient to go – why kill an innocent animal? And I got the point from the Holy Spirit. The one who is going to become great must have an element of violence in him because it takes violence to kill oxen. I say, what was the offence of the oxen? Ah, the way he was looking at them. He knows they will remind him of where they used to be. So he said, I am burning the bridge behind me. I don’t know where God is taking me but one thing I know I am not going back to where I was and anything that will not let me climb will just have to be destroyed.

That’s why I know there is somebody here tonight who is going to make up his or her mind – any friendship that will not help my growth will have to go. Any association that will not let me climb will have to go. Every Goliath that may want to stand between me and my throne, the head will have to be cut off. Any club that I belong to that will not allow me to reach my goal, even if I wm the President of that club, the club will have to go! Every Pharaoh that says I will not reach my Promised Land will just have to drown!

The Bible makes it clear that from the days of John the Baptist, the kingdom of God suffereth violence and the violent take it by force. How many of you will take your kingdom by force? Whether the devil likes it or not? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

So those who are going to qualify for greatness like David, they are violent worshippers. When they dance their belly will come out from their gown. The Bible says David danced with all his might. They that will qualify for greatness they must be ready for violent service to the Almighty God because several times you want to serve God and your hand will say, “be careful!” You want to do this and they will say, “Are you the only one?” And you will say, “No but I’m going to be the greatest.” Greatness is available to you. I said, greatness is available to you but not everybody will become great. There will be head and there will be tail. What is your choice? I didn’t hear you anymore? You better make it loud and clear!

Greatness costs something. It is expensive to be great! If you want to be great You will have to pray hard! Prayer is a hard thing! Jesus prayed! He just didn’t pray and sweat – He sweated blood! You want to be great? You will fast. Jesus fasted. I remember very well when some people said, It is written, the works that Jesus did I will do also. I said, “Wonderful! Why don’t you start, the way He started? 40 days without food. That was the first work that He did.

You want to be great; you must be willing to pray the price. Don’t let anybody deceive you. If you don’t want to be great no problem. I’ve said it before – if you want to live all your life a messenger, you don’t need to go and study in the University. You want to be a professor, you will study when everybody is sleeping you will be studying. I told you before. I once said to the Almighty God when I read in the Bible covet earnestly the best gifts, I told the Almighty God “Father, double the portion that was on Elisha plus double the portion on Paul and double the portion of the anointing that was on Jesus Christ when He was here on earth add all of them together and double it again! Give it to me!” He said, “Son you are asking for trouble.” “What kind of trouble?” “They won/t let you sleep! They will come from the East; They will come from the West; They will come from the North; They will come from the South; They will come with their problems because they want solutions. I said, “l that’s a good problem!” How many of you want a good problem? Are you ready to be great? Stand on your feet! The one who is going to be greatest let me hear him shout the greatest ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

We want to begin our journey of greatness by praying, Lord You know there are many of us here – hundreds of thousands of people and one of us is going to be the greatest of all! It’s going to be me! Say it loud and clear! Let God hear you!! So we are going to pray. The fellow next to you might not be interested in becoming great so while you are praying like a mad man, mad woman and he is looking at you, let him keep looking! When you reach the top he will be able to look more. I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God! loud and clear, and say, “Father! I am ready for greatness! Let my greatness begin!” Lift up your voice to the Almighty God! And begin to pray! I am ready for greatness O Lord! Let my greatness begin! I don’t want to remain in the valley – I want to go to the mountaintop! … Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And then you cry to the Lord and say, “Father! Give me a divine encounter tonight! That I will never forget!” Let’s talk to the Almighty God! “Father, since I am ready for greatness, give me a divine encounter tonight! The one I will never forget for the rest of my life! …. Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you will lift up your voice to the Almighty God! And say, “Father! Suspend whatever else You are doing until You settle my case!” Go ahead and talk to the Almighty God!! Whatever You are doing in heaven right now – suspend until You settle my case! ….. Thank You Father! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And then you shout to the Almighty God and say, “Father! Give me the grace to follow You…. Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! ….. Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you shout to the Almighty God and say, “Father! Give me the grace to pay the price! Give me the grace to give! Let’s talk to the Almighty! … Give me the grace….

Anything that will slow me down, anything that will not let me reach my goal destroy tonight Let’s talk to the Almighty God! … Any relative, any association, anything whatsoever that will not allow me to reach my goal, that will not allow me to reach the stop, destroy Lord! Destroy Lord! destroy Lord! destroy Lord! O Lord God Almighty! Everything that I must destroy so as to be able to soar – give me the grace to destroy …. Thank You Father!

Now remember, before you pray your next prayer, that God is listening. Even the dead know that God is here right now and He had said, “As you have said to my hearing so will I do unto you.” Therefore, on your own now, tell Him how great you want to become – tell Him now! Tell the Almighty God how great you want to become! Tell Him! Thank You! Thank You! Glory be to God! .. Then tell the Lord that by the time you leave this world, the whole world will know – there goes a man, a woman who had reached the very top in a particular area. Make it clear to Him… Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now there must be somebody at least that you love – might be more than one, might be two, three – they may be here tonight, they may not be here. Pray for them now that they too will be great so that they don’t diminish your own greatness. Mention their names and tell the Almighty God! “Ah this fellow must be great too so that he will not diminish my greatness. This fellow … this fellow … this fellow … they too must be great so that they don’t diminish my greatness. Mention their names and present them to the Almighty God! Make him great; surprisingly great, exceedingly great to the glory of Your Holy Name make them great! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

I want you to say after me: “Father! I will obey You. I will follow You! I will learn at Your feet. I will worship |You! I will obey You! I will give, even sacrificially! Father! I am ready for greatness, I will be a blessing. If You bless ms, if You make me great, I promise You, I will not kick against You so help me God! Amen! (Amen!)

My Father and my God, based on the covenant that Your children have made with You tonight, I hereby decree everyone of you, you shall be great (Amen!) In your family, you shall be great! (Amen!) Your churches shall be great! (Amen!) In your villages and towns you shall be great! (Amen!) In your nations you shall be great! (Amen!) In the whole world you shall be great! (Amen!) I release you to your greatness! (Amen!) By the power vested in me by the Almighty God! I hereby decree, from today your greatness begins! (Amen!) Your greatness begins! (Amen!) Your greatness begins! (Amen!) You shall be great physically! (Amen!) You shall be great spiritually! (Amen!) You shall be great materially! (Amen!) You shall be great in anointing! (Amen!) You shall be great in power! (Amen!) Your joy shall be great! (Amen!) Your victory shall be great! (Amen!) , Your testimony shall be great! (Amen!) And your children will be greater than you! (Amen!) So shall it be! So shall it be! So shall it be! So shall it be! So shall it be! So shall it be! So shall it be! In Jesus’ mighty Name I have decreed (Amen!)

If you receive that give the Almighty God a big round of applause! Shout 7 Alleluias! I think we should do it! After 7 comes 8. Are you ready? Are you really ready? Praise the Lord! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! The fifth one is for God the Father, the One who can make you the head! Praise the Lord! (Alleluia!) The sixth one is for God, the Son, the giver of Grace! Praise the Lord! (Alleluia!) The last one is for God, the Holy Spirit, the One whose party we are attending now, the One who said this time we are talking about the beginning of greatness, so I want you to get ready, get ready now, this is the biggest one now … Praise the Lord! (Alleluia!) Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause. And then you may be seated. Thank You!

Now we still have some very important things to do tonight before we close. We want to get one or two businesses out of the way as it were. Last year God called four groups of covenant partners and I want to thank God for those of you in the four various groups who had been faithful. I’m sure some of you are already beginning to see the result. If you haven’t seen any result yet don’t worry yourself – your greatness has just started. But in case you were not here last year, so you don’t know about these four groups so you were not able to decide whether you want to join any of them, let me run quickly through the various groups:

Group 1 are people who decided that they will fast and pray 20 days in February, 20 days in July, 20 days in December, the first 10 days will be singles, the last 10 days will be continuous. Alternatively you could fast 14 days continuously in February, July and December. Those who had been doing it they can tell you the Lord is good.

Group 2 are those who said they will use their own body to come and serve g voluntarily for 60 days in the year at the Camp. 2 months – one month at the beginning and one month in the middle of the year. Any two months of their choice.

Group 3 are those who say by the special grace of God, they will give God 1 million naira a year for the next 10 years. All these groups are for the next 10 years.

Group 4 are those who said by the special grace of God, they will give 10 million naira for the next 10 years.

Those of you who have been in various groups, like I said, the Almighty God will surprise you. (Amen!) If you wan to join any of these four groups, please feel free to do so tonight.

But as I was waiting on the Lord for this particular program the Lord told me that He wants to increase the groups to 7

Group 5. These will be people who will fast daily. They can’t fast continually but they are willing to fast daily throughout February, July and December except on Christmas Day. February, July, December. Our God is full of understanding. That’s group 5. If you want you may belong to that group and fast and pray throughout the months that had been mentioned.

Group 6 are those who say I can’t really fast that long and I don’t have one million naira but I have something and I want to be a Covenant Partner with God. And God says, Group 6 will be those who will say, I will give g anything between one thousand and a hundred thousand naira a year for the next 10 years plus I will fast one day a week…. at least from 1,000 to 100,000 every year for the next ten years….

Group 7 which is going to be my group is a combination of all. In other words you will be in Group 1 –4. You will be in Group 1. You will be in Group 2. You will be in Group 3. You will be in Group 4. And once he is in these 4 groups if he can’t handle group 1 then he might join Group 5 and combine it with the other groups. So group 7 will fast. If he can’t come to work at the Camp he will send a representative to come and represent him and then he will give g not just 1, not just 10 but 11 million naira per annum for the next 10 years.

So you can choose which group you want to belong to now and it is a covenant between you and God and I can assure you since your greatness is beginning now you need that partnership with the Almighty God because underneath are the everlasting arms and that hand now will begin to lift you higher day by day. So if you have a piece of pare with you or if you don’t have, you can wave your hand so that the ushers can give you one. And if you do not already belong to any of the previous groups and you want to belong to any of these groups you will collect a piece of paper from the usher and write you name, your address and the group you want to belong. So let’s do that one on the next 2 minutes very quickly because we still have a lot of things to do. So let’s do it within the next 2 minutes.

Next month will be a very special Holy Ghost for children. That doesn’t mean that adults are not welcome. All we are saying is that we are going to pray specially for children next month and there’s something God wants me to release to our children next month which I believe every adult should also come for. The Lord wants me to release the grace for wisdom so that from next month on, in all schools, our children will always be tops! And not only that, everyone of those children will be brought, hands to be laid on them, as a mark to tell the devil – stay away from this one! So I want to encourage you, bring all your children next month. We will learn more about greatness, about being a world champion and then we will pray specially for the children.

As for May, we are going to have a kind of Holy Ghost Service we have never had before. It is going to be brief. We will stop around 2 a.m. so that we can get home before 6 a.m. Why is it going to be special It is going to be one continuous night of praise. We will bring as many gospel musicians as we can get. They will sing, we will join them in singing. We will dance and I’m talking about all kinds of good gospel musicians – not only to thank God for the beginning of our greatness but one thing I know is that when you have that kind of praise there’ll be deliverance on a scale that people have never seen before and I’m sure prophesy will follow like a river.

As for June, don’t let me tell you that one yet. Glorious days are ahead of us! Do I hear somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’? (Alleluia!)

And then finally before we move to the next segment of our program somebody made a statement. The one who goes an extra mile will become extra-ordinary. In other words, he is saying that the one who will do more than ordinary will become extraordinary. I want all of us beginning from this month to become extraordinary Christians. I didn’t hear your ‘Amen!’ (Amen!) How many of you want to become extraordinary in power? Extraordinary in anointing? Extraordinary in prosperity? Extraordinary in health? We will be extraordinary Christians in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

And the extraordinary Christians are the people I want to talk to now. What used to be the extension to the auditorium has become bigger than the original auditorium itself and we have moved our altar from what used to be the old auditorium to what used to be the extension and if you have not seen the new Altar you will see it tomorrow morning. There is no altar anywhere in the world and I mean, no altar, like that anywhere in the world. And I have travelled a bit. It’s not even the beauty of the Altar now that is crucial but God spoke to me and said, “Son, that altar will be an altar of miracles and those of us who were here on Thursday, we know what happened. We want to tell those of you who didn’t come, maybe you will find out and if you are in that category when I call, you will stand up.

Just remain where you are and then I will pray for you. And those of you who are writing out the various groups you want to belong to, wave it and the ushers will come and collect it from you.

God wants me to pray for those who want financial greatness not those who want to be rich but those who want to be really great financially and I mean great in the sense that you alone can buy a jet for GO. Some of us don’t want that kind so it’s only those who want that kind that should stand now and raise your hand to the Almighty God and as I pray I want your ‘Amen!’ to be loud and clear!

In the mighty Name of Jesus! Father! You know why these people are standing and You are the One who says I should pray specially for them. Father! Right now, the anointing to prosper, I release into these hands in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) The kind of prosperity that the world will know this can only be God, I release into your hands in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) From today, nothing will stand between you and uncommon prosperity in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) In that Name that is above every other name I hereby declare that kind of divine provision that will cause one to say, “God this is too much, I decree that it will come your way now in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Beginning from now, anything you touch will prosper in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) – without stealing, without fraud but by the way of God only, I hereby decree that before the end of this year you will e counted among the prosperous ones in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And when your prosperity comes you will not forget God (Amen!) So shall it be! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Put those hands together and clap for the Almighty God and then you may be seated.

Now the Lord wants me to pray for the ones who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb. I want you to stand because by the special grace of God, the children you are going to bear shall be great from their mother’s womb and I want the rest of us to say ‘Amen!’ along with them. Father, in the mighty Name of Jesus, (Amen!) You have the power, my Father and my God, to make dry bones live so I hereby decree that every dead womb will come to life in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) That everyone here now Father, trusting You for the fruit of the womb, before the end of this year, let them come rejoicing with their babies in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) The kind of wonderful children like Isaac, children like Samuel, like John the Baptist, send to them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You my Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And the Lord asked me to pray for those who said, Lord all I want is to be spiritually great. That when I lay hands on the sick, they will recover. If I wave my hand at all, the blind will begin to see; if I breathe on the dead, the dead will rise. Those who want that kind of greatness let them stand on their feet now. Your ‘Amen!’ must show the Almighty God that you mean business. In the mighty Name of Jesus (Amen!) Father! I am keenly interested I in this group because I belong to their group. Lord, if you will grant this request, the assignment you have given me will become easier! Father, everyone believing you for this spiritual greatness I release it to you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) The anointing to heal, receive now in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) The anointing to perform miracles, receive now in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) The anointing to perform wonders for Jesus, receive it now in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And that anointing will begin to work in you from now on, so shall it be! I say, so shall it be! So shall it be! Now lay the hand on your own head and pray for yourself straight away and command every sickness, every disease, to disappear out of your body, every pain, everything that is not of God should disappear right now because of the special anointing that has just been released into my hand. I command now sickness, disease, aches, pain, every form of demonic activity – right now in the mighty Name of Jesus! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) So shall it be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Finally God wants me to pray for all the covenant partners. Those who have been in the previous groups one to four and those of you who are just joining now whether in group 5 or 6 or 7 – will you please lift your two hands to the Almighty. “Daddy, these are Your partners and anybody who walks with you always reaches his or her destination. So I hereby decree for all these Your covenant partners –none of you will fall by the way side in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) You will not fail in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) You will not fail in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Physically God will prosper you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Materially, God will prosper you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Spiritually, God will prosper you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) God will prosper your family in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) It will be well with you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) You will never know sorrow again in your life in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Everything you want from God He will give it to you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Even as you have decided to be partners with God, the devil will stay far away from you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) God will promote you (Amen!) He will accelerate your promotion (Amen!) You will be higher than everybody else (Amen!) Your competitors will never see your backside (Amen!) Your secrets will never leak out (Amen!) it shall be well with you (Amen!) It shall be well with your children! (Amen!) God will meet all your needs (Amen!) your cup will always run over. (Amen!) So shall it be! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Put those hands together and give God a big clap offering. Thank You Lord!

Now you may be seated please. Please make sure those of you who are just writing your names and addresses and your various groups that as soon as you finish writing you wave it so that the ushers can come and collect it.

While I was praying concerning this program, I asked my Daddy what gifts do you want me to give to Your children this year and then He said something that sounded to me very strange. He said, “Give them a comb.” A comb? What in the world for? Well He said, Get combs and when I got them He said, He will tell me what to do. So we went out to Lagos and bought all the combs available in Lagos and bought combs from Onitsha. We bought all the combs available. After we bought all the combs almost enough to fill a small house He then told me what to do to the combs which I’m not going to tell you but the ministers will come now and distribute the combs to you and then I will tell you what to do with the combs after you’ve gotten your own.

There are enough for every adult. Whatever you get, the one you get is the one you will use for your child. Please don’t tale for children. I may as well tell you what to do with the combs when you get it. It’s just that you wait till everybody had been served before we do it together. The first thing we are going to do is that we are going to comb our hair backwards and by so doing we will be telling failure, sorrow, disease bye-bye! And when we finish doing that to say from now on forward ever! Progress physically! Progress spiritually! Progress financially! Progress in every sphere of life! And then I will do something else that He asked me to do. Now if you have children with you when you’ve done your own, you will do that of your child but please don’t collect any comb for any child. It is for adults only – remember the just shall live by faith! Number 2 as you have said in my ears so will I do unto you. That’s what God said! You take the comb, comb your hair backwards. If you have no hair on your head just mimic the motion you’re your hair is plaited just make the notion. Make sure the comb touches your head from the front going back and then say with your mouth all those things you don’t want to see again in your life and just say bye-bye sickness, bye-bye sorrow, bye-bye demonic oppression….. Go ahead and talk! Go ahead Open your mouth and talk as you comb your hair backwards. Say it so that God can hear you and when you finish your own do that of your child. Bye-bye to stagnation… Bye-bye to lack of progress…, Bye-bye to every attack of the devil…, Bye-bye to sorrow…, Bye-bye to sickness…, Bye-bye to aches and pains…, Bye-bye to every form of weakness.., Bye-bye to poverty…, Bye-bye to everything that is not of God! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now Father, as You have instructed me, I now decree as the waters in a river flow never to return, I hereby decree all those things Your children say they don’t want to see again will never return to their lives (Amen!) So shall it be! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And now you are going to comb forward and everything you want in which you want to make progress you begin to mention them: Yes, I want to make progress in prosperity… I want to make progress in divine health… I want to make progress in joy… I want to make progress in anointing…I ant to go from glory to glory! I want to go from power to power! I want to grow in greatness! I want to make progress in everything that is divine! I want to make progress in the service of God! I want to make progress in my love for God! I want to make progress in my ability to serve God! I want to make progress in my ability to hear from Him! I want to make progress in my ability to do His will to the letter! I want to grow and make progress in closeness with the Almighty God! I want to make progress in every sphere of my life that will bring glory to God. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Father, as You have instructed me, I hereby decree as the sun rises in the east and will not set until the day is over, until these Your children will leave this world, let it be progress forever (Amen!) progress in everything good! Progress in the service of God, progress in anointing, progress in power, progress in the knowledge of God, progress in the revelations from g – so let it be! (Amen!) In Jesus’ mighty Name I have decreed. (Amen!) If you receive that now, go ahead and praise the Almighty God!! Praise Him! Magnify His holy Name! It’s going to be exactly as we have said. It shall be forever and ever and ever and ever! (Amen!) So Father, we just want to praise You! We give You glory! We give You honour! Thank You Father! Thank You! Almighty God! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Finally before I go and hand over to the MC, Daddy says He told me He will heal 70 thousand during this weekend and those of you that had been healed tonight, I will like to see you so that I can pronounce permanency on your healing. So as we begin to dance now, if God healed you tonight I want you to dance forward. Let’s begin to dance!

I want you to know that your healings will be permanent (Amen!) Now how can anyone want to take testimony here – there are so many there is one particular case I would have loved to see – the boy they used to call axe-head, that God has remodelled the head. Is anyone here? Do I see any hand up there? Near this crowd or is it among those who are far way in the crowd? If you are the one, I won’t bring you forward because you might be shy – just raise up your hand… ah, he was afraid that I will bring him forward! Glory be to God!

Now between today and tomorrow anyone of you who may want to share your testimony, if what God did is something extremely big, you now, cases of cancer, you know those delicate operations that God said He was performing, please just see any of the Pastors, pass the testimony to them so that in the evening we will be able to take your testimony and glorify God together.

You will never know sickness again (Amen!) You will never know disease again. (Amen!) the one who had healed you now will be your Doctor for the rest of your life. (Amen!) From now on you will walk in divine health. (Amen!) Not even that alone – from now on when you touch a sick fellow, that fellow will be healed. (Amen!) Congratulations! Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Now you are going to dance back to your seat. Now as we just rejoice because God healed so many people in one night. And then those of us who still need any form of ministration for one thing or the other – not necessarily sickness, by Saturday 10 a.m. in the Auditorium, all ministers of God will be there to lay hands on everyone who will want hands laid on them! Congratulations!

I have also been reminded to please tell you that you must vote during the coming elections – vote for any man of your choice but make sure the fellow you are voting for is not somebody who will burn your church. Do I hear ‘Amen!’ to that? And then those off you who subscribe to a news letter that I said it will come out this month please see my secretary and they will tell you how you can get your copy. The newsletter is out and it is extremely beautiful. And if you want to subsequent copies then as usual subscribe. You pay now and then collect next month. But because so many of you were not here last month I’ve asked them to make additional 4000 copies which you can get if you want – one for 200 naira. But if after that one you want that of next month then you have to pay the 200 naira for next month in advance.

Is anyone here who is ready to rejoice? Is anyone tonight here who had been blessed? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Alleluia!

 

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

BORN TO REIGN

4th of April, 2003

The next Alleluia is going to be shouted by those who consider themselves to be children of the most high. (Alleluia!). Anyone one who is younger than the mountain anyone who wants to enter the kingdom of God! Anyone who needs the wisdom of God! Anyone who is not too big to be carried by Jesus – Let me hear you shout `Alleluia’ (Alleluia!)

 

Children have something special going for them. That is why they have no shame; they don’t know what is called shame. When you see them dancing they forget, they don’t even care if anybody’s looking or not. Whatever they are doing they do it like children will do it, so the children of God tonight are going to begin by dancing for Jesus (Amen!). So lets have some music and lets just see the children dancing.Olore, olore….. olore, olore….

 

Throughout this year you will be dancing for joy (Amen!). Beginning from today, anything that will not let you dance will go back to the house of your enemy. (Amen!). From today, anytime you think of your children you will stand up and dance! (Amen!)

 

Let’s go before our Lord and just worship Him because He’s going to do marvellous things tonight. Osuba re o……….. Lets just go ahead and worship the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords! Lets worship the I am that I am, the Ancient of Days! Let’s magnify His Holy Name. He is worthy to be praised! He is worthy to be adored! Let’s magnify His Holy Name! Tell Him you love Him! Tell Him you appreciate Him! Magnify His Holy Name! Take all glory Lord! In Jesus mighty name we have worshipped! (Amen!).

 

The Lord said there is someone here, there are two dragons in your life, one will die today, the other will die next week! (Amen!) Thank You Jesus!

 

The Lord said there is someone here, all those who say your children will not prosper they will come and bow down before your children. (Amen!).

 

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, beginning from now you will only hear good news concerning your children. (Amen!)

 

Father we want to bless Your name. We want to give You all glory and honour! We thank You for what You did in January, What You did in February. We thank You Lord for what You did last month and we want to thank You in advance for what You will do this month. Glory be to Your Holy Name! O Lord, Father, Glory be to Your holy name! Tonight in a very special way visit us! Bless us! Save souls! Heal the sick! Set the captives free! At the end of everything tonight Lord, let Your name alone be glorified ! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout `Alleluia.’ Let’s put our hands together for the Almighty God! Let’s clap like true children of the living God! God bless you! You may be seated!

 

We thank God for the first message – that’s like a true mother’s message: Let the children come. And I am one of the children, coming to Jesus Christ tonight so that He can lay His mighty hands on me! How many of you already feeling the hands of God already? Let me hear you shout `Alleluia’ (Alleluia!)

 

And thank God for the various choirs that had already ministered. I am sure you remember that next month we are just going to praise God all night long and all the best musicians in Nigeria will be present. We will praise God from 7: pm – 2am. We will go home so that we will go and vote. Make sure that this month you vote. Vote according to how God leads you. You are children of God, as many as are led by the Spirit of God they are the children of God. Vote as you are led by God not led by any man and I am sure the Almighty God is going to give us a peaceful election in Jesus name! (Amen). And God’s perfect will for Nigeria shall be done (Amen!). I didn’t hear your Amen on that one! (Amen!).

 

Tonight we have a special Holy Ghost Service indeed. As a matter of fact since the Holy Ghost Services began there had never been a night like tonight. By the time we finish in the morning you will understand what I am taking about. It’s a special Holy Ghost Service for children and the theme is ” Born to Reign” I am born to reign! The Bible is very clear about what proceeds out of your mouth, The Bible says death and life are in the power of the tongue. The Bible says whatsoever you say is what you are going to have. I am born to reign! I am not born to be a servant. Tell the fellow sitting next to you, “You are sitting next to royalty!’’

 

Every child that is born into a home where he or she could be raised in the fear of the Lord, is a child that is born to reign. Gen 1:28 – it says, the Almighty God created you to be a world champion, He said you are to rule over the whole world, you are to have dominion over the whole world and I am saying to you in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, until the whole world hears about you, you are not going to die! (Amen!) They are going to hear about you, they are going to hear about your children, they are going to hear about you for good!

 

In Deut. 28: 13 it said the Lord shall make you the head and not the tail. It said you shall be above only and you will never be beneath. Please open your mouth and say, I shall be the head, I will not be the tail! I will be above only, I will never be beneath! it is important that you keep on saying this one so that the devil can hear it, so that he can forget all the evil plan concerning you. What you say is so important because as you say it the heavens will be hearing.

 

I remember when I was very young and I don’t know why that memory came back just now. I was a scholar in the primary school and I have a friend, not a native of my town but came there to live and everyday himself and the uncle they were always quarrelling because he will not go to school. And one day when the uncle was beating him he said, “Stop beating me! Stop beating me! I don’t want to go to school I want to be a truck pusher!” And that’s what he is today. I refuse to be a truck pusher! I will be the head! I will not be the tail! I will be above only! I will never be beneath I am born to reign! I shall reign and so shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!) The one who is above, is the one who controls and he’s the one who is never controlled. It is the ones who are under who struggle it those who are under who are pressed. The Bible says in Proverbs 22:7, the rich ruleth over the poor and the borrower is servant to lender. I refuse to be a servant. I will not be a borrower!

 

In Matt. 11: 28 when Jesus Christ said, Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. You see something in that statement: Those who are heavy laden are those who labour. There is a difference between working and labouring. Hard work is a good, working hard is a pleasure. Even God is working till now according to Jn. 5:17. Jesus Christ said, My Father worketh hitherto and I work. There is nothing wrong with hard work at all. In fact Heb 11:6says God is a rewarder of those who are diligently seeking Him but to labour is to work hard without a reward – to work hard and there’s nothing to show for it. I decree in the mighty name of Jesus your days of labouring are over! (Amen!)

 

To reign is to work hard and be rewarded hard. To reign means as you are working you are being rewarded. I mean, we all have 24hrs in one day. We all work throughout the day for example, and at the end of the day some go home without enough even to eat. and some people have surplus. From today you will belong to the category of those who have surplus! Proverbs 22:29, it said, seeth thou a man diligent, in his business, He will stand before kings and not before mean men. Hard working people who are rewarded for working hard. They always find themselves among those who are born to reign. How many people are born to reign here? Let me hear you shout `Alleluia’! (Alleluia!) Very soon you will be eating with Presidents.

 

Now to reign means nothing is pressing you down. If you are above, then there is nothing above you. Anyone who is born to reign supernaturally, born to reign according to the decree of Almighty God, sickness and disease will not press you down. Exod. 15:26 made it clear that if you are one of those doing the Will of God, He will not allow sickness and disease to come upon you! In other words sickness and disease will have no dominion over you and I decree right now every sickness, every disease pressing you down shall disappear today in Jesus name (Amen!)Because you are born to reign sickness and disease have no right over you! If you are born to reign, if you are above not beneath there is no reason why you should be groaning under debt – not at all! Deut. 28:12 says concerning those who are born to reign that you shall lend to Nations and you will never borrow. Every one of you here tonight who are still struggling under a load of debt, in the mighty name of Jesus, before May you will have testimony! (Amen!). If you are born to reign, enemies should no longer press you down. As a matter of fact the enemies are to be under your feet. If you are the king and somebody says he does not like you he has to do one of two things – either he will leave the town for you or he will come and bow down to you. Beginning from today, every enemy will either bow down to you or they will get out of your way in Jesus name! (Amen!) Deut. 28:7 it says, the enemy shall come against you one way and shall flee from you seven ways! So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

Isaiah 54:17 He said, no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper and it went on to say every tongue that rises up against you in judgement you shall condemn. The word of a king is a decree. Because you are born to reign, from today you will command every weapon formed against you not to prosper in Jesus name! (Amen!) Because you are born to reign you will sit down and enjoy in the presence of your enemy. That’s what the Psalm 23:5 says, it said thou hast prepared a table before me in the presence of my enemy. It takes a king to sit down and enjoy while the enemies are grumbling. It doesn’t matter – those who want to grumble may grumble. From now in the mighty name of Jesus Christ you shall enjoy in peace! (Amen!) Luke 10:17 it said that even demons are subject to us, through the name of Jesus. The one born to reign even over demons. Before I was born again, for 13yrs I was running away from my village because some people said they were going to use me for breakfast. Now when I want to come, I announce in advance so that those who want to use me for breakfast will have to make up their mind, Because they know who is coming now, it’s either they run to their farm or I will trample over them. How many of you will begin to trample on your enemies from now on? Let me hear you shout “Alleluia’! (Alleluia!).

 

Anyone who is born to reign, the Bible says in Rom. 6:14 It said even sin shall have no dominion over you. If you know who you are, that you are a king, you won’t get yourself involved in all those rubbish that the Bible calls sin. How can I the wife of the King of kings to hear that I am committing adultery with the worms of the earth? Have you over heard the wife of a President committing adultery with a driver? How many wives of Jesus Christ do we have here? Ah let me hear you shout `Alleluia’ (Alleluia!)

 

“Born to reign, born to reign!” That tells you something – that the reason you are going to reign is because you are born that way. It’s matter of connection. It’s matter of who your father is. I know who my own father is. My father is the King of kings. My father is the Lord of lords! My father is the One whose name is the I am that I am! My father is the One who is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. My father is the One who speaks and it’s done. My father is the original majesty. My father is the One that said, Let there be light and there is light. My father is the One who will speak and the storm will hear His voice and fall asleep! My father is the One who will speak to fire and fire will break into two. That’s my father who is your father?

 

This is a very important point indeed when you consider Abraham for example. InGen.12:1-3 when God was blessing Abraham, when He was blessing He also blessed his seed after him. He said through thy seed shall the nations of the earth be blessed. So by the time lsaac was born and Isaac got into a very tight spot inGen.26: 1-5 God appeared to Isaac and said, “I am the God of your father Abraham because you are the son of Abraham and Abraham is my friend, I am going to bless you.” By the time Jacob was born, and he was a rascal, and he was doing all kinds of rubbish, Then one day as he was running for his life in Gen.28:10-15 God appeared to him and said, “I am the Lord God of your father Abraham, because of your father Abraham, in spite of all that you had already done, I will still bless you.”

 

When you read 1 King 11:9-13 you will find Solomon, how he offended God and made God angry and God said I am going to punish this boy – but God said because of your father David, I will temper justice with mercy. Now I have a father, His name is Jesus. If I have done anything wrong that could cause God to get angry with me, He’s going to think of Jesus tonight. He’s going to think of Jesus concerning you tonight. How many of you have Jesus as a father? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

 

It is a matter of who is your father because it takes a child to use his father’s name. It is only those of us who belong to Jesus who can use the name of Jesus. You can’t call yourself Adeboye now if I am not your father but I can call Jesus my father because I am one of His children. I have told someone before if you want to know my full name I will tell you. My name – full name – is “Enoch Adejare Adeboye Jesus.” What is your own name? ah, ah, ah, ah! Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

 

Jesus Christ said, or the Word of God says, if my people that are called by my name – only those who are called by my name, They are the one who can call on me and I will answer them. You will remember those seven Sons of Schiva who said to a demon, “Devil we command you, come out!” The devil said, “Jesus I know and Paul the son of Jesus I know him also….” Before this night is over, the devil will see you and he will run because you have Jesus as your father.

 

The reason I am born to reign is because I am born again, because I am now a child of Jesus. In 1 Samuel 17:45-47 David said to Goliath, ‘I come against you, not in my own name but in the name of my father. I come against you in the name of the Lord.” and he said, ‘Before this night is over, Goliath you will lose your head!” All of you who are born to reign from now on you will use the head of your enemy as a trophy.(Amen!)

 

I’ve told you the story before, one young man went to a place. He said he went to a crusade and there he got loaded with demons – so heavily loaded with demons that he couldn’t even sit down. All he could do was just lie down. Every child here tonight that is handicapped you shall rise in Jesus name. (Amen!) They carried him to the office at Ebute Metta and they asked me to pray for him and I said, “Well I want to pray for you now and I want you to kneel down.’’ “He said, I can’t kneel down!” I said, “I command you to kneel down.” He said, “In whose name?” And I said, “In the name of Jesus!” He said, “That is different.’’ And then he knelt down. I prayed for him. After I prayed for him I commanded him to stand up. He said, “I can’t stand up.” I said, “I command you to stand.” He said, “In whose name?” I said, “In the name of Jesus!” He said, “That is different.” And then he stood up and I said, “I command you now to walk home.” He said, “I can’t walk.” He said, “In whose name?” I said, “In the name of Jesus!” and he began to walk. Let me hear somebody shout Jesus! (Jesus!)

 

In Mark 16:17-18 Jesus said, “In my name you shall cast out demons. In my name you shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.” You are going to leave here today empowered by the name of your father and every demon will run away from you!

 

In John 14:14 Jesus Christ said, If you ask anything in my name I will do it. I told you that means He gave you a blank check. Once they see the signature and they see the name of Jesus, they will pay. From now on everything you need, the moment you say, “In the name of Jesus!,” you will get it in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

After all Phil 2:9-11, it said, God has given him a name that is above every other name that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, of things on earth, of things underneath the earth – every tongue must confess that Jesus is Lord. Everyone of your enemies, because of what God will begin to do in your life, from now on they will say surely your Jesus is Lord! (Amen!)

 

Born to reign is a matter of who is your father. It’s a matter of the name of your father and then it is a matter of the bloodline You see when you are the son of somebody there is a blood that is flowing in you, that is flowing in your father. What makes a Prince different from a servant? Particularly when they are just born they look like babies, babies – the son of the King, the son of the messenger – babies, babies. Ah! But no,no,no,no… if you take a very close look you will see that the blood of one is different from the blood of the other. There is a blood that even the witches call “white blood.” They say there are some people they dare not drink their blood. Do you know that no witch will dare kill an albino? No, no, no, as soon as they see one they will say. “This one belongs to orisa. ” I don’t know about that one but I know this one belongs to Jesus. I say I belong to Jesus.

 

It’s a matter of the bloodline. That is why when somebody becomes born again, the first thing that Jesus does is that he washes you in His blood. 1 John 1:7 – it said the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin. Until He has washed You in that blood, you can’t come into the house of God the way you can come into the house of a father.Heb10:19-22 He said we have the boldness to enter into the Holiest by the blood of Jesus. There is a place called the Holiest of Holies. Only those who are already washed in the blood of Jesus can go there. That is the privilege of those of us who are already children of God. There is a room of God that only those who have been covered in the blood of Jesus can go into. They are the people who can go into the very presence of God and get anything that they want. According to Heb 4:16 he said we can go in boldly provided you are covered in the Blood of the Lamb.

 

I used to give you an example. I have a room in my house, it is my prayer room. All that is there is a mat, my Bible and once in a while a dictionary. And I make sure that the place has no air conditioner so that it will not be too comfortable so that when I go there I won’t go there and sleep. So at times it gets very hot there so I remove my shirt and lay down there on my mat and begin to talk to God. Everybody knows when Daddy is there you don’t go and disturb him because he is there talking to God. But when my youngest son was small and didn’t know anything about don’t disturb Daddy or not, I am laying down on my face, discussing important matters with God. I’m praying about convention or I’m praying about peace in Nigeria. I’m praying about Pastors that are to be transferred I’m praying about something serious. My son opens the door, comes inside and taps me there: “Daddy I want biscuit!” What! I’m talking about something serious! “Daddy I want biscuit.” Go to your mother, go to your mother! Daddy I want biscuit! If the prayer is to continue you have to give him biscuit!

 

Tonight, whatever God is doing in Heaven He has to stop until He has settled my case because I am going in covered in the blood of the Lamb. I’m coming in as a child. I’m coming in as the child of the king. I am going to say, Daddy, I need my own biscuit.” That biscuit may be healing. It can be a future partner. It can be promotion. It can be new anointing. It can be prosperity but whatever you need tonight you will get it in the name of Jesus! (Amen!) If you believe that, stand on your feet and shout “Amen” (Amen!) Thank you Jesus! Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause! Glory be to God!

 

The Lord is doing some serious work in our midst tonight, He’s been healing some children in particular. There is a child here who has never spoken before, if you are the parent listen now, the child is already talking. Daddy said there is a child who has never even crawled. The child is walking now, so allow the child to walk. The child can walk now. The Lord is doing all kinds of miracles among the children now. It’s a matter of the blood the bloodline.

 

The Bible said, they overcame Satan by the blood of the Lamb. The Bible tells us inEx. 12: 21-23 – It said when I see the blood, the angel of death will pass over you! Every child that is here today, the angel of death will pass over you. (Amen!). It’s a matter of the blood. it’s a matter of the bloodline. And that brings us to one special statement that Jesus made in John 15:5 He said, “I am the vine, ye are the branches. If you abide in me you will bring forth much fruit.’’ And what does that one tell you? It means Jesus is the vine, you are a branch and your children are the fruit, The fruit is connected to the branch, the branch is connected to the vine, that’s why children born are called fruit of the womb. So you discover that there is a link between you and Jesus Christ that will transmit light into your children. In John 15:4it is clear that if you abide in Christ it’s going to be well with your children. If you abide in Christ, if you are not a wishy-washy Christian. If you are hooked to Jesus Christ as a branch is hooked up to the vine then your children have nothing to worry about. David said in Ps. 37:25, he said, I was young, now I am old I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread. Every one of you committed to Jesus Christ your children will never beg for bread. As a matter of fact, in the mighty name of Jesus your children will be greater than you! (Amen!) I say your children will be greater than you! I say your children will be greater than you! (Amen!)

 

And then Jn. 15:6 it says if you don’t abide in me, if a branch will not abide in me, it said that branch will be torn off and it will wither and will be dragged into the fire. Everybody knows that if you tear off a branch, every fruit on it is going to die. If anyone is torn away from Jesus, it will affect the children, it will affect the children automatically. I can give you several illustrations. I know one fellow, he was burning for Jesus Christ and if you see the children – oh they are wonderful children! Singing in the children’s choir; always coming first in Sunday school and then all of the sudden the father backslid. We did everything we could, he refused to come back, At a stage we said, “Alright even if you are not coming, allow the children to be coming.” He said, “No. If I don’t go my children don’t go also.” The children wept. They begged! They did everything. There is nothing we could do. Your father is your father. And the children were taken away from Jesus and the devil received them. Oh, when the those children grew up, they gave the father so much trouble that the father finally died. I’m not saying the children poisoned him but he died young and there is nothing anybody could do. The children refused to come back to Jesus. If you will not abide in Christ as the branch through whom the fluid in the vine is going to flow into the fruit there is nothing anybody can do. The fruit will follow the pattern of the branch.

 

The son of one Pastor – not in this mission – he was arrested as an armed robber and they said, How can, you son of a pastor be a robber?” He said, “I saw my Daddy when they take offering he will tell the usher come before you go and count, let me take my own.” He said whatever he took he is always passing to me and say, “Take this one home.” Like father – like son. You can’t blame me this is what I saw from my father.”

 

Parents, whatever will take you away from Jesus will never come your way again in Jesus name! (Amen!) But in Jn. 15:7 Jesus Christ said, if you will abide in me, anything you ask for you will get it. Tonight we are going to pray for our children – as many parents as have made up their minds to be completely surrendered to Jesus, everything you ask for your children tonight will be granted to you in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

But then how can you abide in somebody you don’t even know? Unless you first of all come to Jesus, how can you abide in him? Jesus Christ said you must first of all be born again to see the kingdom of God, And you have to see the kingdom of God first before you can enter into it ! Psalm 34:8 – it said taste and see that the Lord is good. Some of us say I have already tasted Him and we know the Lord is good and that is why there is nothing anybody can do that can take us away from Him. All you need to do is taste and see that the Lord is good. If you taste Him, He will prove to you that He is a good God.

 

So those of you who are yet to be born again, those of you who are parents who are here tonight and you want to become connected to Jesus Christ, I’m calling on you now – come and surrender your life to Jesus Christ! He will save your soul and the moment you become connected to Jesus Christ things will begin to change. It will begin to change for you, it will begin to change for your children. It’s because it’s a matter of the bloodline, the blood that is flowing in the vine will flow through the branch and flow into the fruit. If you surrender your life to Jesus the blood of Jesus will flow through you, into your children and everything will begin to change. That’s why the Bible says, Therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature old things have passed away behold all things become new. So all you who are here and you are not born again and you want to surrender your life to Jesus, begin to come now. I’m going to count up to ten. After that I will begin pray.

 

So if you want to surrender your life to Jesus and you want the blood to wash away all your sins so that, that blood can begin to flow into your children also come now. This is the hour of salvation. I begin to count now 1….2…3….4…5…6…. oh maybe you are not even married but you want to be connected to Jesus, you want to surrender your life to Jesus, you want your own full name also to end with Jesus, you want to become a child of the king of kings so that you too can have boldness to enter into the Holiest, then you better come now.

 

It says as many as received Him, to them gave He power to be called the children of God. If you are not yet born again you are not a child of God. If the blood of Jesus has not washed away your sin you are not yet one of His own. Until you have been washed in that blood, you cannot enter into the Holiest. Until you are already washed you cannot say, “I am born to reign.” It is only those that have been washed in the blood of Jesus – they are the ones who will have dominion, dominion over sickness, dominion over poverty, dominion over enemies, dominion over devils, dominion over sin.

 

The people who have come to Jesus Christ, who have surrendered their lives to Him, who have made up their mind that they will serve Him and him alone, they are the ones who will be head and not the tail. They are the ones who will be above, who will not be beneath. That’s why He said, “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” If you want to give your life to Jesus Christ hurry up now! If you want to be washed in that blood come on now – quickly! – the Lord is calling you! This is the hour of salvation! Come! God is calling you! Hurry up! Now! I have counted up to six. I will stop when I get to ten. 7 now! 8 now!

 

Those of you who are already at the front begin to talk to Jesus Christ. Don’t wait for those who are coming, Say, “Lord I have come to surrender my life to You tonight. I want you to save my soul. I want you to be merciful unto me. I want you to wash me in your blood! I also want to become a child of the living God. I want to become the child of the living God. I want my name to be associated with the name of Jesus. I want the ability to enter into the Holiest through the blood of Jesus Christ.” 9 now! 9! So those of you who know you want to come you better hurry up! Now is the day of salvation. God wants to save your soul!

 

Now I want the rest of us to stretch our hand towards these people and pray for them that God would save their souls. That the One who saved our own souls will save their souls also. That the Almighty God will cleanse them in His blood today. That he will write their name in the book of life today. Let’s pray for them! Let’s pray for them! Let’s pray that the Almighty God will save their souls Let’s pray that the Almighty God will be merciful unto them. Let’s call on Jesus Christ for their Salvation. Let everybody be praying for these people now! Stretch your hands towards them and pray that the Almighty God will cleanse them in the Blood of Jesus now. That He will wash away all their sins that the Almighty God will save their souls now! And those of you who are coming Hurry up, hurry up now! I know some of you are coming from a long distance there – hurry up now!

 

Cry to the Lord and say, “Lord – save my soul! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me!” Open your mouth and pray! Open your mouth and pray! You are to call on God yourself – open your mouth and pray! Ask God to be merciful to you. Ask God to save your soul! Ask God to forgive all your sins – open your mouth and pray! The Bible says if you call on the name of God you shall be saved. Call on Him and ask God to save your soul. Ask God to be merciful to you – Ask him to forgive all your sins – call His Name now! Call His name! Anyone who is still coming hurry up now! We are about to pray, hurry up if you now you are coming. Ask Him to wash you in His precious blood. Hurry up now – This is the last call! This is the day of salvation! – Get here before we finish praying. Thank You Father! In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.

 

Father, we thank You because there is power in Your Word, We thank You because there is power in Your Blood, We thank you because there is power in Your name, because there is no other name given among men by which we might be saved other than the Name of Jesus. Accept our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen!). These people have come forward tonight to surrender their lives to You, Father receive them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Wash them in your blood in Jesus name! (Amen!) Forgive all their sins in Jesus name! (Amen!) Save their souls tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) Write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus name! (Amen!) From tonight anytime they call upon You answer them in Jesus name! (Amen!) From today let them begin to reign (Amen!) Let them reign over sickness, (Amen!) Let them reign over disease (Amen!) Let them reign over poverty! (Amen!) Let them reign over demons! (Amen!) Let them begin to have dominion (Amen!) In Jesus name (Amen!) Father don’t let them look back! Uphold them till the end! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! Amen! (Amen!)

 

Those of you who have come forward let me hear you shout “Alleluia!” (Alleluia!). Now I want to rejoice with you because right now the Heavens are rejoicing over you. Not only that I want to make you a solemn promise that from now on by the grace of God….

 

Because this is a very special night we still have something very important to do very soon. We are going to do two things simultaneously. Those of us who have testimonies of the past Holy Ghost Services you want to share you please come to the back of the alter and meet the Pastors there who will be talking with you. So if you have any testimonies from the past Holy Ghost Service or there is something special God has done for you that you want to share you will come to the back of the alter now and the Pastors will be there to meet with you. While that is going on we will use that song that came – it came from the Holy spirit Himself – that Christ must be honoured in my life from now on, everyday because I am born to reign.

 

You are going to spend some time now and command all those things that are not allowing Jesus to be honoured in your life to pack their load and go because later on when it’s time to pray we are going to spend most of the prayer on our children. This is your own time. Now anything that will not allow Jesus to be honoured in my life must go now – open your mouth and pray! Open your mouth now and begin to talk to Almighty God. Anything – if it is sickness, command the sickness! You won’t allow Jesus to be honoured in my life? You must fall now! If it is barrenness – you are not going to allow Jesus to be honoured in my life – you must go now. If it is poverty, you don’t want Jesus to be honoured in my life you must go now! I am born to reign and to be the head. I am not to be tail! I am to be above – not beneath? Every thing that will not allow Jesus to be honoured in my life – you must go now! Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

 

Father we thank You for tonight because we have been blessed, our children are blessed we are also blessed. Your blessings will continue in our life in the name of Jesus Christ and these blessing will follow us all the days of our lives. The glory will never turn to shame in Jesus name! (Amen!) We come against the Spirit of backsliding, that the spirit of backsliding should get out of our lives in Jesus name! It will be forward ever for us, backward never in the name of Jesus Christ. We thank You for the pronouncements. Even when the messages were going on. We know they will abide. They will sustain our lives! Father let it be so in the name of Jesus Christ! Thank You everlasting Father! Blessed, blessed be Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let’s say a better Amen”! (Amen!)

 

It is time to give our offering to the Lord……..

Welcome to something very, very special here tonight. When I was before the Almighty God praying for this night’s service, I thought it would be done just the usual way – we preach, we sing, we dance, we prayed for those who want to be prayed for and lay hands on the children, thank the Almighty God and go home but suddenly God spoke to me and said this is a special night there will be a dedication service. Of course I was happy I thought the dedication service will be for the new children that are not yet dedicated. we bring them forward dedicate them and continue.

 

Oh, by the way since we started this programme tonight two children have been born, one boy, one girl!

 

But Daddy says no, the dedication service is for everybody – for fathers, for mothers, for children, for teachers, for everybody! So open your Bible to 1 Samuel 1:24-28.

 

24 And when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with three bullocks, and one ephah of flour, and a bottle of wine, and brought him unto the house of the LORD in Shiloh: and the child was young.

25 And they slew a bullock, and brought the child to Eli.

26 And she said, Oh my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the LORD.

27 For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him:

28 Therefore also I have lent him to the LORD; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the LORD. And he worshipped the LORD there.

What do we mean by dedication? To dedicate means to surrender, completely to, hand over total ownership, irrevocably, forever. For example Hannah said here “I have lent Samuel to the Lord. As long as he shall live he shall be lent to the Lord.”

 

When we were young, at least in my village, when a child is born, at a certain age they carry him to the idol of the family and they put the two legs of the new child on the top of the idol and they will perform certain sacrifice and they say, “From now on we hand over this child to you.” Oh how we suffered! Many of us because we were dedicated to one idol or the other, the idol pursued us up till we met Jesus Christ. Some people have names that are associated, that will tell you exactly to whom they were dedicated. “Satan receive this,” that’s the name of somebody. “Sango receive this one” that tells you the fellow they are dedicated the fellow to. And wherever they went the demon that they dedicated to will keep on saying The fellow is mine.” Today somebody is going to be dedicated to Jesus Christ (Amen!) I didn’t hear your Amen! (Amen!) Well maybe I should say only those who want to become totally dedicated to Jesus should say Amen! (Amen!)

 

What are the blessings of dedication? When you are dedicated to someone whatever wealth, whatever blessing, whatever your owner has immediately becomes available to you. That’s why many of us suffered for so long – because we were dedicated to demons, sorrow, fear, bad dreams. And because we were dedicated to him, he gave us what he had. But somebody is going to break loose today (Amen!) Somebody is going to have a new owner today! (Amen!)

 

In Ps. 27:4 David said, “I’ve dedicated myself to one thing and only one thing only – I am going to stay put with the Almighty God.” and what followed? He wrote in Ps 23:6 he said surely goodness and mercy shall follow me – for how long? Because when you dedicate, you hand over for life, He said I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever!

 

When you are dedicated to someone, everything you do from then on is under his control. You obey him and all his wealth becomes available to you Look at Job 36:11 he said, if they obey and serve him they will spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasures. If you are dedicated to God and you obey that God and do His will, He said, you will spend the rest of your days in prosperity and your years in pleasure. You know the moment you said somebody is dedicated to God, from that day onward everything that God has become his.

 

Maybe I should say one thing very quickly before I go further. Salvation is different from dedication. In salvation God gave Himself to you: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believed in him should not perish but have everlasting life. So at salvation you received the gift of God. At dedication you give yourself to God. At salvation you receive God, At dedication you give yourself to God.

 

Now according to the Word of God it is more profitable to give than to receive. There are many people who are saved who are suffering, they are suffering but they are smiling because they are not dedicated. The moment you become dedicated to God even the devil will know that there is a mark on you. This fellow is dedicated to somebody. He has an owner. There will be a mark on you, you may not see it but the devil can see it that is why these children who are being brought forward today and those of us bringing them forward I say “congratulations”.

 

Those of us who are a bit older in the church you will remember the story of a young boy. He was kidnapped at Costain roundabout. He was just a child but he’s been born again, he’s been dedicated by the parents to the service of the Lord and they kidnapped him and took him to the house of a man. Apparently some people wanted to use him to make charms for money, and the herbalist went into his room and consulted whatever demons is inside there and came out and said, My demon said, “I don’t want this!’ And the kidnapper said, “You are the one who said we should bring a boy who has not known a girl, This is a young fellow, he could not possibly have known woman.” The herbalist answered, “It’s not a matter of knowing a woman or not. There is a mark on his forehead!” Today God is going to put his mark on your forehead (Amen!)

 

You know yourself, in many of our churches, in the village when we’ve just arrived and we don’t have money to build a church yet we have anything, any building that is available. I remember when we first got to lfewara we hired a cocoa store that had not been used for a long time, but from the day we said we dedicate this house to God it was no longer cocoa house, it has become the house of God! Somebody is going home today to the house of God! Before we dedicated that building the owner could come there to drink beer, He could come there to smoke. He could bring his concubine there at night. The moment it was dedicated to God even a madman will not smoke in the house of God! He would go out and smoke and from today, because of this dedication service all the evil forces that have been operating in your life they will leave you alone in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

I am talking of the blessing of dedication. All the powers of the new owner will become marshalled for the protection and the defence of the dedicated thing. If something is dedicated to you it is yours and it is your duty to protect that which had been dedicated to you. That’s why Ps. 91 says and you can read it from verse 1- 7 it might be good to read, it’s a blessing. Ps. 91 I’m reading from verse 1-7 He who… who is God talking about here? He’s taking about me! He’s talking about those who are dedicated to Him. They dwell in His secret place. They abide under His shadow. He becomes their refuge. He becomes their protection.

 

I just remembered a story. I don’t know whether to tell it or not. Well I will tell a little bit of it. A man has a very beautiful daughter – very beautiful and in the village there was an herbalist, very wicked herbalist, Everybody feared him. Nobody wanted to give him a daughter to marry because he was a killer. And he came to this man I like your daughter, I want to marry her! The poor man now is in trouble. If he says no the herbalist will kill him. He’s known for that. If he says yes the daughter will become a slave to a wicked man.

 

So he thought and thought what shall l do? And I am telling you a true story. Finally he had an idea. There’s another man in the village. He’s strong man than the wicked herbalist. So he went to him and said to him do you mind having another wife? That one says it depends on who the new wife is. He said the new wife is my daughter. Ah that beautiful girl? She is welcome in my house anytime! And he said, “But I must tell you one thing, so-and-so had already said he wanted to marry her that’s why I’m making this suggestion.” The stronger man smiled and said Leave me to him. Let the wife come and we will deal with that fellow.” It’s a true story.

 

The devil has made up his mind that he wants to hold you captive for life. If you are wise you will run to somebody who is stronger than the devil tonight and dedicate your life to Him. Who is the stronger than the devil by the way? Let me hear you shout His name, loud and clear!

 

And then you ask the question: some of us have already been dedicated to one thing or the other. Ah! If you go to the stronger man he will nullify the original dedication.Isaiah 49:24-26 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty or the lawful captive delivered? but thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee and I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh and they shall be drunken with their own blood as with sweet wine and all flesh shall know that I am Your Saviour and Redeemer, the mighty one of Jacob.

 

You have heard the story. I’ve shared the testimony before. There is a woman who came to us and said I have a problem I have three daughters and none of them is married and the youngest is close to thirty years of age. Nobody had ever come to say, “How now?” I was going to pray for them and the Lord asked me to ask her what have you done with your daughters? You are the one to tell us. Finally after a lot of twisting and twisting she said as soon as they were delivered I dedicated them to Ifa oracle and they tie a certain robe round their hands saying this is the wife, the bride of lfa. She said, “I did it so as to protect them from witches and wizards” I said, Well these people are already married to lfa so that when any man wants to come lfa will say, “where are you going?”

 

Every demon that has been standing between you and marriage, those of you that of marriageable age – they shall loose hold of you tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

So we have to pray a prayer of dedication we took these people away from lfa and handed them over to Jesus Christ. The three of them were married the same year because as soon as lfa was pushed aside all those who wanted to come had access to come.

 

Some of you your business have been dedicated to one idol or the other. You poured libation to one demon or the other when you were opening your factory. Somebody came and buried a charm in your place of work. Another chanted certain incantations to invoke demons. In the mighty name of Jesus we are going to nullify all those work tonight! (Amen!)

 

Many of us have asked the question again and again. The Bible says, if we give we shall receive. I’ve been giving my offering, I’ve been paying my tithe I don’t see any improvement. Because until you yourself have become dedicated, it is only after God has accepted you that your offering becomes acceptable. Rom. 12:1 I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. You must first of all become a living sacrifice before anything you want to do for God becomes acceptable.

 

When Paul was talking about the church in Macedonia he said they first of all gave themselves to God before they now began to give to the man of God. In 2 Corinth. 8: 1-5 the Bible told us the Macedonia church gave themselves even though they were poor. After they gave themselves giving becomes a pleasure not a burden. It is those who are dedicated to God who are called cheerful givers. Those who are fully dedicated to God they see every opportunity to give as something to rejoice about.

 

I was born again about 30 years ago but after I become born again there were struggles between me and God. Not between me and any man but finally I surrendered. This is not salvation now I’ve been saved but I said, “God I am Yours do whatever you like with me. My future is in your hands do what you like with it. Whatever happens now I don’t care – I am Yours!” And you know one thing is that I just wake up in the morning and my heart will be full of Joy! I wake up in the night singing as if I’ve won a lottery and there was nothing. I was thinking about anymore other than how can I make God happy?

 

That’s the major thing you will notice about those that are dedicated. They don’t ask what can I get from God, They ask what can I do for God? They become hungry – there is a hunger in them just to make God happy and every morning I wake up thinking what, what new thing can I do to make God happy today? I started writing tracts. I found that, that makes God happy but it not enough. I began to hold little, little seminars. I will gather youth together. Lets study the Bible! Lets invite speakers to come and talk to us! What can I do to make the church grow?

 

I remember very well when they were building the church at the headquarters, I was so happy that at long last I will be able to say this is one church building I had a part in. They taught us how to mould blocks. In that Ebute-Metta fifty of the blocks that I moulded is in the building! There are some people here who will know what I am talking about. We will take baskets, go to the sawmill nearby, fill it with sawdust and come and pour it on the ground. I got a very big basket to carry my own sawdust. I was already a lecturer in the University of Lagos, I couldn’t care less. The joy in my heart was so much I can’t sell it for money! One day while we were carrying this sawdust and filling the something, there was go-slow and one of the people saw somebody branch into the church and thought maybe there is a route through the church. He didn’t know the fellow was coming to the church .So he followed in his own car and he happened to be one of my students in the University of Lagos. He saw me with a basket on my head! He said, “ah Oga!” I said, “which Oga?” This one is surrendered to Jesus! Are you still willing to be part of this dedication tonight? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’

 

I remember very well the first Congress we had I was in the house of a friend of mine in llesa and we were talking about Festac – see these people now – they want to bring all these people from all over Africa to come and sing and dance in praise of idols! They even say there is going to be holiday for schools so that they can attend and suddenly I had an ideal! If these people are dancing for idols why can’t I gather the students together and we dance for Jesus and we study the Bible and we just pray and then go home! That is how the first Congress started.

 

I went to WAEC, I got the addresses of all secondary schools and all teacher-training colleges and I wrote letter – I want to invite all of them to the Congress. And then I discovered I don’t have money for stamp! A lecturer wasn’t well paid in those days! God bless lecturers! So what am I going to do? Then I remember that I have a car and I sold the car – to buy stamps! To post letters! That is what is called dedication! And the day I was selling my car oh! oh! You should see me dancing! You will think that I have just been promoted the king of England or something! I invited the people. Come! Free feeding! Free accommodation! I had no money to buy stamps I was asking them to come for free feeding! But there was somebody also too who was dedicated – the man in whose house the idea started. He called me and said, “Don’t worry, I have a life savings that I’ve saved for my life! Four thousand naira! Four thousand naira was a lot of money in 1976! He said, “You can take it and use it for the Congress!” That’s what is called dedication.

 

But today I’m rejoicing still because the One to whom have been dedicated has never failed me, I am not ashamed to say by this grace I have never strayed since then.

 

In Gen 4: 3-5 The Bible says: `

3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

When God wants to accept your offering He has to accept you first. It is somebody who is dedicated to God that God will receive his offering with joy. He received Abel before he received his offering. He rejected Cain along with his offering. We need to be dedicated to God and then we will begin to see tremendous changes for better in every sphere of our lives.

 

I’ve told some of you the story before, some of us come to church because of what we can get from God. We come like this, we sing, we shout ‘Alleluia’ like everybody. As soon as we leave here we become something else because we are not dedicated to God. We just come because we think we can get something from Him. No, No, No, No He wants you first – you! You! He wants you to be committed to Him. He wants you to be so fully surrendered to Him that you will say, “God do what you like with my future! Do whatever you like with me! I am yours!” When you are dedicated to him sin becomes no, no, nothing that you can touch. Because you will tell – oh! no! no! my case is different – I am dedicated to God! Others may lie, they may cheat, they may do it the way others are doing it but my own is different – I am dedicated to God.

 

Several years ago when the church was still very small and very poor, one rich man came with flowing agbada and came with the latest edition of speaker and microphones. Brought it to church and said I’ve brought this to God: And we were happy. “Eh God! Thank You!” Suddenly I heard the voice of the Lord! “Ask him to take his gift away. I don’t want them!” I almost said, “Get thee behind me Satan! What are you taking about? This is the something the richest churches don’t have money to buy. We don’t know what year we will ever get this thing. We didn’t ask him for it. We didn’t raise a special offering for it. He brought it.” God said ” I don’t want it! Ask him to take his gift away!” I heard his voice clearly! I had to call him, “Sorry Chief, God says take your gift away. He says He doesn’t want”. He said “What!” I said, ” God said take your gift away He doesn’t want!” I pray today that God will not reject you! I say God will not reject you! (Amen!) Better say the ‘Amen!’ loud and clear. (Amen!) I’ve never seen that kind of sorrow before I pray I will never see it again. That man went to one of the pillars in the church and began to knock his head against the pillar as he was weeping. He said, “It means God has refused me.” God will not refuse you in Jesus name! (Amen!).

 

When God gives you an opportunity to give, it is only if you are dedicated that your gift will be acceptable. God is not a beggar no, no, no, no! Anything He wants to do He will do it! With or without any of us! But when He sees someone who is dedicated to Him, anything you give to Him becomes a joy to Him. Are you still ready for dedication? I’ve told you the whole truth. I don’t want you to say, “Ah once you are dedicated to God He will take care of you.” you have to know what is involved.

 

Every dedication is sealed with a sacrifice. When God said that Abraham and his household should become dedicated to Him. He said, They should circumcise all the men, the firstborns. Abraham was ninety-something years old then. There is no anaesthetics then and yet they had to take a knife and circumcise a ninety-year-old man. It’s a sign of dedication and it went down the family line.

 

That is why David when he came face to face with Goliath he said you, you are big but you are uncircumcised, you are not one of us who are dedicated to God you are just big for nothing. Because we are dedicated to God no Goliath can stand before us. He said, “Before this day is out I will be carrying your head in my hand!” and that was exactly what happened. God said in Lev.12:6 – 8, Let’s read it to you:

 

6 And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest:

7 Who shall offer it before the LORD, and make an atonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This is the law for her that hath born a male or a female.

8 And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering: and the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.

Anytime there is dedication God says it must go with a sacrifice. Now God knows the ability of each fellow that will be dedicated. He knows some are rich and some are poor so He says the sacrifice must be according to the ability of the fellow to be dedicated. For example N100 is a sacrifice to some people. For some people 1 million naira is not a sacrifice and God knows. So when is time for dedication God expects a sacrifice to seal the dedication. When Hannah was going to dedicate Samuel she didn’t bother herself with a pigeon, or a dove or something she took three bullocks. She said this boy I’m going to dedicate him to God, that God Himself will pay attention. No wonder there are very few prophets that can compare to Samuel.

 

Tonight we are going to dedicate ourselves to the Almighty God afresh or shall I say I’m going to dedicate myself to the Lord afresh! We are not just going to dedicate the children we are going to dedicate ourselves. I think it is enough for demons to begin to torment children of God. There should be a mark of God on our forehead that even the devil will see and say this one belongs to God. Even our colleagues who are Christians they should be able to point to us and say, “your own is different.”

 

When we started Redeemed Christian Church of God in London and somebody heard the place we were using for church he said it is impossible, they can’t give that church to anybody to use – that is the church where the Royal Princes come to practice organ and piano. And somebody said, “No, no, no, it was given to Pastor Adeboye”! He answered and said, “We know his own is different!” They shall say concerning you, “Your own is different!” (Amen!)

 

When we were going to start the church in Israel the Ambassador told me clearly – in Israel they will never register any Pentecostal church. Even much as they are in love with America they have not registered any Pentecostal church from America. They told them if you can’t go to Roman Catholic or Anglican, or Baptist that’s all! I said but they’re going to register our own. He laughed! “Not only is your church Pentecostal. You are from Nigeria!” He said, “Forget it!” I said, “No Sir, we will not forget it!” And he said, ” All right, if you won’t hear the truth what do you want me to do?” I said, “I want to apply, and I want to just submit my application. Leave the rest.” He took the letter out of courtesy, surrendered the letter. Few weeks later we were registered. Why? Because our own is different! How many of you want your own to be different? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) From today as you become dedicated to the service of God, everywhere you turn, doors will open! (Amen!) They will see you and they will know this man is different (Amen!) This woman is different. (Amen!) You will apply for a job, they will take you without interview because they will say your own is different!

 

“Dedication! Dedication!” be totally be dedicated to God and things will begin to change. I will give one more testimony and then it will be time to pray. I submitted my PhD. thesis to the University of Lagos in Dec. 1974 and then graduation was to be January 1975 and everybody knows that between the time you submit and the time you go for graduation there will be something we call oral exam. The oral may not even take place for six months but between the time you submit and the time you do the oral you will keep yourself busy so that when they ask you any question you will be ready to answer.

 

I was supposed to be sitting down at home checking everything I’ve written to be sure everything is in order etc. etc. but we had a Crusade in Ilesha and we were going to start the church in Ifewara. I can’t leave the work of God and sit down at home. So I went for the crusade. While I was doing God’s work, God was doing my own! From today God will be doing your work for you! My Head of Department took my Thesis – Professor Obi – things and travelled to the external examiner himself. He’s supposed to post it but he took it himself. He got there, handed it over to the man and said, ” I will sit down until you finished reading”. And that one said it’s going to take days and he said I will wait “days”. You see when God is on your side everything becomes different! From today on God will be on your side! (Amen!).

 

So the external examiner was compelled to do nothing but to sit down and read my Thesis. He read the Thesis and so my Head of Department said, “Now when is the date for the oral exam?” The external examiner said, “I have no question for him! Go and give him his PhD.” My professor said, “No it’s not done that way! You have to ask him questions! Even if all you are going to ask him is ” are you the one who wrote this?” You will have to ask him questions.” The external examiner says, ” Who is the expert in this field? Am I not the expert? Is that not why you brought this thing to me? I say I have no questions for him!” Today, probably in the whole history of the world, maybe I’m the only one with PhD without an oral exam because my case is different.

 

From today wherever you go, whatever you touch, whatever you intend to do your case shall be treated as different! (Amen!) When you are dedicated to God, He will make your own different, different. People will look at you and say, “Are you the only one serving God?” You will say, “No I’m not the only one but my case is different!” Ah! Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

 

It is dedication time. What we are going to do is as follows: You will all stand, those of you who are with children if your children have been sleeping, if it someone you can carry, you carry him. If it is somebody that is old enough you can wake him up and then with your own mouth, you are going to say, “Lord I am dedicating my life to You today. And if you have a child, Lord this child, I am dedicating this child to You today!” You tell Him – for a minute or two, then I will pray for you, then we will proceed from there.

 

But go to the Almighty God now. Tell Him, “I dedicate my life to You, I dedicate my future to You, I dedicate my wife to You, I dedicate my children to You, I dedicate my business to You I dedicate everything to You, it is Yours now, I dedicate everything to You my body to You, I dedicate my soul to You, I dedicate my spirit to You, it’s Yours from now on! Do whatever You like with me! I dedicate everything to You Lord. My brain! My hand! My legs! My eyes! My mind! My brain! My heart! My everything. I dedicate everything to You Lord, I dedicate everything to You – my children, my marriage, the church under my care, the ministry You have committed into my hands, I dedicate everything to You, everything. I dedicate everything to You; take it from now on – its Yours completely! It’s Yours from now on. It’s Yours unchangeable, irrevocably. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen.

 

Daddy I stand before You today as Your representative to these people I stand before You as their representative to You, As many of them as truly mean the prayer of dedication they have prayed, receive them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Don’t refuse any of us in Jesus name! (Amen!) Receive us and our families in Jesus name! (Amen!) Receive us and our children in Jesus name! (Amen!) Receive us and our wives in Jesus name! (Amen!) Receive us and our husbands in Jesus name! (Amen!) Receive us and our ministries in Jesus name! (Amen!) And Father because we are Yours all former owners we rebuke them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Every link binding us to any strange previous owner we destroy now in Jesus name! (Amen!) Destroy now in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

In the mighty name of Jesus, because you have become dedicated to the Almighty God evil will stay away from you! (Amen!) Sickness will stay away from you! (Amen!) Death will stay away from you! (Amen!) Sorrow, failure from now on wherever you go, your case will be treated specially in Jesus name! (Amen!) So shall it be, so shall it be, so shall it be, in Jesus mighty name wehave prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). You can go ahead and give the Lord a big round of applause.

 

Now information reaching us says because of the traffic situation on the express way there are some people who are just arriving so we will appeal to just half- a dozen Pastors to stay in front here so that whenever these people arrive they will come they will still be prayed for. Somebody cannot spent 8hrs in the traffic and then get here and be told we have finished. So we appeal for about half- dozen volunteer pastors so that as these people come they will be attended to …. Volunteers… dedicated Pastors. Thank you, you can just line up a little to my right so that as these people come they find you here waiting for them.

 

Now in the meantime because of the time and thank God this has been a record, we thank God for what He has done tonight but we still want to pray for our children and we have some very serious prayer points that we want to present to God. I’m not going to beg you to pray any of them. When you are there if you feel you don’t need to pray them then don’t bother yourself.

 

But first of all those of us who want to pray the prayer lets stand on our feet and first let us give God a big shout offering of Alleluia! (Alleluia!). And then you are going to make a declaration you will open your mouth and make a certain declaration so that Heaven will hear, the devil will hear. You will say, “In the mighty name of Jesus I am born to reign. From today I will have dominion in every area of my life. From today I will always be head, I will never be tail again whether the devil likes it or not I will reach the top. Wherever the king is his word carries power. Therefore the prayers I am about to pray will be answered before the sun rises in the mighty Name of Jesus! (Amen!) If you believe that first of all give God a big clap offering!

 

And now you will now lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, “Father”, loud and clear! “Let all my children serve You and You only all the days of their lives.” Go ahead talk to Almighty God.

 

Father all my children let them serve You and You alone – You only! All the days of their lives let my children serve You, let my children serve You, let my children serve You all the days of their lives……..

 

Born to Reign!

 

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

TWELVE BASKETS OF BLESSING

6th of June, 2003

I know there is someone here tonight who will never borrow again. (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). There is someone here tonight, very soon this fellow will be lending to nations. (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you shout a real big Alleluia! (Alleluia!). There are twelve baskets of blessing here tonight and they are going to the home of somebody (Amen!) That fellow will shout the loudest Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

Let’s go before the One who is going to make this one happen and worship the Great Provider. Let’s Magnify His Holy Name! Holy Holy Holy……….Thank You Lord! Blessed be Your Name. You are high and lifted up………………………Jehovah You are the most High…………….Lets go ahead and Worship the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! The I Am that I Am, the Ancient of  Days! Lets praise Him!  He is worthy to be praised! Worthy to be Magnified! Praise Him! Thank You Lord! Thank You Jesus!  Father we bless You! We give You Glory! We give You honour! In Jesus mighty name we worship! (Amen!).

Father we bless Your Name. King of Kings and Lord of Lords! The I Am that I Am! The Ancient of Days! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Father Glory be to Your Holy Name! Thank You for Nigeria! Thank You for peace! Thank You for Your faithfulness, Thank You for answered prayers,. Thank You for  what You did in January! Thank You for what You did in February! Thank You for what You did in March! Thank You for what You did in April! Thank You for what You did in May! Thank you for what You are going to do in June! Glory be to Your holy name Lord! Accept our worship in Jesus name!  

Tonight Father in a way we have never known before – visit your children! Daddy I have a very special request tonight. In the lives of all these your children gathered, that thing that is called garment of poverty remove it far away in Jesus name! Father whatever you have to do tonight so that these Your children will never know poverty again do it in Jesus name! At the end of everything Lord, take all Glory. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed!(Amen!) Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). Shake hands with one or two people and say “Happy New Year! Happy New Year  It is going to be a new year for you even as it is a new year for Nigeria”. Then you may be seated.

As you have been told, tonight is not like any usual night, I want to encourage you to be absolutely on the alert. Some years ago an incident happened here in Lagos at a bus stop. And you know whenever the bus stops people selling bread will come and sell and as the bus was moving away…… Glory be to God! The story I want to tell you is important so we will wait a little bit for them to hear. Some people are here that come with commercial bus but they will come in next year with their Mercedes! (Amen!)

Everybody knows that by the grace of God I am a holiness preacher. Glory be to God! But I have also discovered that one of the blessings of holiness is prosperity. You see if the Holy ones prosper only then we can really convince those who are living in sin to forsake their sin and come in the way of holiness. You are all going to prosper in Jesus name! (Amen!)

So there was this incident at the bus stop. As the bus was taking off, a man jumped on the bus and from inside the bus he grabbed a loaf of bread from the head of the hawker and began to eat it very, very fast. The hawker began to cry, “Thief! thief! he took my bread!’’ The bus stopped, pushed down the man. They began to beat him. But he kept on eating the bread. After some time he said, “Stop beating me! I Have not eaten for three days’’. And suddenly all those who were beating him began to pity him and they began to give him money and suddenly he began to cry and said, “God look at me! See what I have been reduced to! Stealing bread to eat and now receiving money like as a beggar!’’ 

When I heard of that incident  I made up my mind I will teach those who will listen, how never to be poor again. Tonight those who have ears let them hear but I am confident of one thing, if you will pay attention to what God wants to share with you tonight, poverty will become a stranger to you! (Amen!). If you don’t want to prosper no problem! When it is time to pray, you can call on the Almighty God and say that the prosperity that should have come your way He should send it to Pastor Adeboye. I will receive it. But I made up my mind, My children will not beg for bread. Say it with your mouth! Make it loud and clear!

John 6:5-13

5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?

6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.

7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.

8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him,

9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.

12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.

13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.

This is a story that you know very well and we want to approach this story tonight from four different angles. First of all we want to look at the story very briefly. Then we want to look at the twelve baskets of blessing that the boy got who gave us his lunch. And then we want to look at the twelve baskets of blessings that are available for you to carry home tonight. And then finally we will look at what you have to do if you are to carry home these baskets of blessing.

The first thing in this story that is very important for you to know  is that the Bible said Jesus knew what He would do. God knows the end from the beginning. The Bible says known unto God are all His ways from the foundations of the worldand the Bible tells us  in Rev 1- 8 that God is the Alfa and Omega, the beginning as well as the ending. Before you came here tonight God knew you will be coming. Before you were born He knew you were going to hear this sermon today. I have a rough idea that God knew long ago that tonight is going to be the turning point in your life. (Amen!)

The second thing to note in this story is that God knows your problems even before the problem started and He has already prepared the solution. The Bible says in Psalm 90:1-2 It tells us that from everlasting to everlasting God is our God, And that before the mountains were brought forth He is God. Before that mountain of your problem ever came into your life he was God. And because He knows the foundation of your problems He can solve the problem, from the foundation. I have a rough idea that somebody is going home with no more problems in his life today. (Amen!)

And then the third thing to learn from this story is that God can use what you have to give you what you need. He can take what you already have and turn it round to give you what you need. In the story in 2 King 4:1-7 when that widow came to the man of God asking for a miracle to pay her debt, the man of God told her ‘there is something in your house what is it?’ And she said, “It is a pot of oil.” And he said, “That is the instrument that God will use to give you your miracle.” Even where you are seated now the miracle that God wants to give to you is already in your pocket. (Amen!) But you cannot turn what you have to what you need unless you surrender it to God first. In 1 King 17: 8-16 when the widow of Zarephath had one meal left and God sent a prophet to her to turn her last to her first, the man of God said “ Do my own first.” I pray that tonight you will be willing to do God’s own first.

The next point you must learn from this story is that our God is always more than enough.  By the time He has finished solving your problem there is always an extra twelve baskets of blessing. Like the preacher who spoke before us said, the boy left home with a little lunch. He surrender the little lunch to Jesus. In return Jesus fed him. Jesus fed five thousand men not counting women and children and yet there were still twelve baskets left over. Because our God is called Jehovah El-Shaddai, the God who is more than enough or if we are to use the African Language “ The sea that never dries” because He is that great, that is why He’s able to do more than you can think or ask for. That is why when He started pouring oil on the head of David and the cup was full and the cup was running over and David said Lord but the cup is already running over, The Almighty God said, “I have just started.” There is somebody here tonight very soon you are going to tell Almighty God this blessing is too much. (Amen!)  I didn’t hear your ‘Amen’ to that one (Amen!) And the Almighty God will tell you,  ‘I have just started’. (Amen!)

The fifth point that you need to learn from this story is that this God is a just God. Years ago when I first studied this story with my children, I asked them, the twelve baskets of extra bread and fish what happened to it? And I got all kinds of beautiful answers. One of the beautiful answers was, there were twelve disciples so each one just took one basket and for along time after that they were eating bread and fish. When I asked them what about the Lord Jesus Christ He was number thirteen man? The disciples were eating and Jesus was just watching them? They had no answer to that one. Finally I had to tell them. Yes, there were twelve disciples Yes, each one took a basket but they  carried a basket to the house of that boy. Why? Because of the law of harvest – whatever you sow that is what you will reap. Ecclesiastes 1-7, The Bible says all rivers run into the sea and the sea is not full. Why? Because where the rivers comes from that’s where it will return. It is the boy who gave the fish and the bread is the one who will get back the extra. It will be wrong of God to take the harvest of somebody and give it to another.

When we say it is offering time some of us rejoice and some people frown. Our God will never take the blessing of those who give and give it to those who did not give. He is a just God. I am sure you heard  the story of a brother in Port-Harcourt in a group called Full Gospel Businessmen’s fellowship. He had an inspiration and he called all the brethren together and said, “Brethren for the next one year, every programme we hold, I will pay for it’’. They clapped for him “Ah nice brother, generous brother!” At the end of the year they saw where he was, they saw where he is now, They looked at themselves, they saw where they were last year, They saw that they were still there this year. So when that brother said, “Brethren the next one year any amount we spend for any programme I will be responsible.” Everybody said, “No way, no way! Last year we didn’t know the secret. Now we know the secret! By the end of next year there’ll be  somebody here who will stand to testify that I was nothing last year. I am something this year. (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). Now very quickly, Let us look at the twelve baskets of blessing that that boy got.

Number one he got divine attention. They brought him to Jesus “this is the boy who wanted to give his lunch to you.” He was just an ordinary one in the crowd before. Nobody knew him. He was there, but he got divine attention. Somebody is going to get divine attention tonight. If you are the one let me hear your “Amen” loud and clear! (Amen!)

Of what use is divine attention? Divine attention gives you a personal miracle.In John 5:1-9 the Bible talks about a multitude at the pool of Bethesda. All those who are there were sick. All of them were looking for healing, only one fellow got divine attention, only one fellow got healing. I don’t know what is your problem, but if you can only get divine attention then your problem will be over. Tonight you will get divine attention in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Number two basket that the boy got was divine approval. God was saying to that boy, “You want to give me your lunch? That’s good!’’ I pray God will say to you ‘that’s good’ tonight in Jesus name! Divine Approval – what is the benefit of divine approval? Divine Approval is crucial to a life of peace. Proverbs 16: 7, the Bible says when a man’s way please God he will cause even his enemy to be at peace with him. Let me tell you the truth brethren it is good to fight your enemies and defeat them, but it is better that the enemy will leave you alone and for somebody here tonight, from tonight onward the enemy will just forget about you. (Amen!) I say the enemy will forget about you completely! (Amen!)

Basket number three that the boy got was divine favour. Now what do we call divine favour? That is when God looks in your direction and He smiles. I pray that God will smile on you tonight (Amen!) If you don’t say “Amen” loud and clear I will stop praying for you. (Amen!) When God looks at you and He smiles that solves a lot of problem. I remember years ago I was in a major crisis I didn’t know how I could  ever get out of that crisis, and you know when God wants to appear to you in a dream, He will put on the figure of somebody that He knows you love respect. I was in that great crisis when my father suddenly appeared to me in a dream and he just smiled. He didn’t say a word, he smiled. When I woke up I knew my problems were over. And do you know before the end of the day my problems were over. Tonight God is going to smile at somebody! Amen! Divine favour is crucial for promotion. When God smiles at you your promotion will begin quickly. In 1 Samuel 2: 26 The Bible talks about Samuel finding favour with God. In 1 Samuel 3:19- 20 very soon after that the Bible said everybody knew in the whole nation that God had raised up a prophet for Himself. As you go tonight you will go with divine favour!(Amen!)

Basket number four was the basket of Abundance. I am sure like the first preacher told you, that barley loaves are the food for poor people and only God knows how precious the little lunch was to that boy. But now he had twelve baskets of them because 2 Corinthians 9:6 says, if you sow bountifully, you will reap bountifully. From today onward your harvest will always be bountiful in Jesus name! (Amen).

Basket number five. If you say last month the doctor had said that I had terminal cancer, that I have three days to live then all of a sudden Jesus came in my dream and smiled at me. When I woke up the cancer has disappeared! Ah! Everybody will clap! Somebody will have a giant testimony here tonight! (Amen!) Now let me give you another example very quickly. All the choir that sang tonight sang very well. We thank God for that even though some of them made a joyful noise because we didn’t hear what they were saying but it was a joyful noise. But you all remember the second choir when they sang that anthem where they said  ‘clap your hands’ and so on before they finished we clapped three times. They were at the centre of attraction because their own happened to be different. Tonight you will become the centre of attraction! (Amen!)

You know the story of Bartimaeus in Mark 10:46-52 He was a beggar by the roadside  begging for alms but  because he got  divine attention, because he obtained divine favour by the time the story ended, he was no longer by the side of the road, he was in the centre of the road following Jesus. All of you that have been forgotten, all of you who have been relegated to the side of the road because you came tonight God is going to bring you into the centre of the road! (Amen!) I say you will become the centre of attraction! (Amen!)

Basket number seven. That boy became a divine partner. You know Jesus could not have fed those people without that boy. Oh he has power to change stone to bread but he wouldn’t do so because that will satisfy the devil. But when the boy said, “Take my bread, take my fish.” the One whose name is Bread of Life had something to work with. That boy became a divine partner. Somebody here tonight is going to become divine treasurer! (Amen!) I say somebody here tonight is going to become divine treasurer! (Amen!) And you know the benefit – one of the greatest – of being a divine partner is that, that will guarantee you permanent victory. Rom 8:31 If God be for us who can be against us? If God and I happen to be partners then who can stand in our way?

That is why I thank God for all those of you who are either in group 1,2,3,4,5,6 Those of you who have been faithful as a divine partners – anybody who decides to attack you is in trouble (Amen!) because you are a divine partner, and as the elders will say, if the dog has somebody behind him, he will kill even a tiger. If you have God behind you then nobody can dare stand in your way! From tonight onward, it will be victory all the way for you! (Amen!)

Basket number eight that this boy took home was that he became a blessing to his family. When he left home, he left with a lunch. When he returned there was abundant food for the entire family. There are sons and there are sons, There are sons that cause sorrow there are sons that bring reproach. There are sons that bring blessings. May you be a blessing to your family in Jesus name! (Amen!) InActs 4: 36-37 they called Barnabas the ‘son of consolation.’ I pray that from today you will be a child of consolation to your family. (Amen!)

One day years ago, I was very little. I was sitting on the floor in my father’s house. The roof of the house was thatched, the floor was not concrete. What is called concrete? It was ordinary floor. Whenever we want to decorate the house we get some leaves and get the meat of a cow, some of you know what I am talking about. How many of you know what I am talking about? When we say paint the house, we take some leaves and the cow dung and we use it as paint. I was sitting down there – very, very young and one elderly man came into the house. He looked at my father and said, “Take good care of that boy he’s the one who will make your name to be heard throughout the world.” I didn’t know what he was saying but I paid attention because they were talking about me.

Now there is one old man coming into the auditorium tonight, they call him Daddy GO and he’s saying to somebody here, right now, ‘Through you, the name of your family will be known throughout the whole world! (Amen!) If you believe that, give the Lord a big round of applause.

Basket number nine was that that boy got a divine surprise, I pray tonight that God will give you a good surprise. (Amen!) He got a good surprise because how can twelve baskets of food come from one little lunch? Exodus 17:1- 6 tells us the story of how God brought water out of the rock, not just a little water but water enough for a whole nation to drink. I am prophesying to somebody here tonight – people may think that you are poor, they may think that you are a dry rock but out of you will come blessings for the whole nation (Amen!) And I am prophesying specifically to a woman here tonight, that is considered  barren – out of your dry womb will come somebody who will be a blessing to the whole nation! (Amen!) So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Basket number ten that that boy carried home was the basket of joy. You don’t have to be a prophet to know that that boy went home with great joy. Number one that small boy had the opportunity of getting close to Jesus. They introduced him to Jesus the great Rabbi! I remember years ago, one of my spiritual children went with me to visit a Governor and the Governor had prepared breakfast but I wasn’t going to eat because I was preparing for a programme. So he said let’s go and eat but I said, “Sorry sir” And then we left. Suddenly, I realised what I had done. I didn’t allow my boy to eat with the Governor! I looked at his face and I saw sorrow there. So I said Oh my dear, the bread there is the same bread we buy in the market. The egg is the same egg we buy in the market but I found out that I didn’t break through at all! It may be the same bread, it may be the same egg but the table is the table of the Governor. Somebody will dine with the King of Kings(Amen!) That boy had great joy that day because he had come into the presence of the King of Kings and of course the Bible said he had the joy of harvest. There is a joy called the joy of harvestIsaiah 9:3 he talks about the joy of harvest. That boy sowed and harvested, so he had the joy of harvest. Everyone of you that had already sowed tonight you will go home with the joy of harvest in Jesus name!(Amen!)

Basket number eleven, the boy got a mention in the Book of Life. We are reading about him now, in the Book of Life, in the Book of books. They did not mention the names of the men and women who ate the food, they only gave us their number, but they said “a certain boy” I can assure you when we get to heaven he will come and say, “I am the certain boy.” Rev 20:15 it said if any man’s name is not found in the Book of Life he will be thrown into the Lake of Fire. That boy is not going to the Lake of Life, and I’m praying for everyone of you here tonight, one way or the other you will make it to heaven in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Basket number twelve was that his offering was accepted. And his offering being accepted means that he himself was accepted. In Gen 4:3-5 the Bible said God accepted the person of Abel  and his offering. God must accept you first before he can accept your offering. If he rejects your offering it means you too had been rejected. That is why you have to be careful when it is offering time. If you don’t give your offering correctly that means you have just given it to the ushers. If you give it correctly, God accepts the offering and He accepts the one giving the offering. May God accept your offering in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Those are the twelve baskets the boy carried home. Now what about you? What are the twelve baskets waiting for you to carry home tonight?

Basket number one is physical blessing. Psalm 107: 20 he says He sent his word and he healed them and delivered them from all their destructions. Just because you came tonight to hear the word of God you already have a basket of blessing because His word will not return to him void. That word is going to heal you! (Amen!) I didn’t hear your “Amen!” to that. And I know by the grace of God  many of us are not sick. And we shall never be sick, again in Jesus name! (Amen!) But for those of you who are sick, even as the word of God is coming to you now, you shall be healed in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Basket number two is that you will go home with material blessing because of the law of harvest. If you sow, you will reap no doubt about that. The Bible had already said if you give you shall be given! And all of you who at one time or the other had given, you will be given in Jesus name! (Amen!)

The third Basket that you will carry home is mental blessing and I think the students should say “Amen” to that one. And believe me honestly all businessmen should say “Amen” to that one. (Amen!) How come you can have mental blessing? Simply because you came. Psalm 119: 130 The Bible says the entrance of thy word giveth light, giving understanding to the simple. The Bible will not want to say  “stupid” the Bible says, ‘to the simple’. When the Word of God comes to you now as you are listening, suddenly wisdom comes. For several years, like the first preacher said, we believed that if you were rich you will go to hell. It was hearing through the word of God that we realised that the entrance to heaven is determined by holiness not poverty. Many of us would have died poor and would have gone  to hell anyway but the entrance of His word brought light and brought wisdom. I am prophesying to you tonight the wisdom to succeed in your education, wisdom to succeed in your business, wisdom to succeed in your marriage, wisdom to succeed in every area of life shall come to you now in Jesus name! (Amen!)

I have told you the story before of an Accountant, a senior Accountant, well paid, who woke up one morning and said, “God, I am tired of saying ‘Yes sir, Yes sir.’ to people. At the end of the day I don’t even have enough money to serve You as I want to. Help me Lord! Give me a divine inspiration!’’ And God said, “Well you want that? Will you do what I ask you to do?’’ “Yes Lord.” “Begin to sell groundnut but roast your own with honey.” He resigned as an accountant and began to sell roasted groundnut. The last time I heard about him he had three jets. How many accountants do you know that have a jet? The inspiration that God will give you tonight will take you to the top in Jesus name! (Amen!)

You may say, Oh that’s somebody in America, That’s true but I know one young man, here in Nigeria. He had HSC. No job, he was a very poor fellow, One day God gave him an inspiration – go and begin to roast  “Akara” “But I am a man.” Well he got the corner of somebody’s house and began to sell akara. From selling akara he bought a motorcycle, from selling akara he got married, from selling akara he was able to rent his own apartment. I don’t know where he is now but he started from somewhere. I don’t know what God is going to say to you to begin to do. If God asks you to sell water, you  sell water and become a millionaire. Divine wisdom, divine inspiration something that will take you to the to the very top will be your portion tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) Tonight is a very special night because since we started the Holy Ghost Service there had never been so much rain on Holy Ghost night as we had last night. So I know God must be saying something – that there will be showers of blessing.

Then another basket that is waiting for you to take home is the basket joy.You know that there is somebody here who will never know sorrow again. (Amen!) Now how do I know that that basket is waiting for you? Simply because you came.Psalm 16: 11 the Bible says in the presence of God there is fullness of joy. And do you know – because you came tonight all the enemies that had been pursuing you before will never come near you again! (Amen!) By the time you get back home they will discover you are different! (Amen!) They will know you are different because you have become a divine partner and when God is on your side who can ever be against you?

Basket number five is the basket of spiritual blessing, The Bible says in  Psalm 119:9 It said how will a young man cleanse his ways? It said by taking heed to thy word. As you hear the Word of God coming to you now, you will find that even without your knowing it you are already taking a decision, that you are going to leave wicked ways, ways of sin because the speaker who spoke first said that, one of the secrets of prosperity is holiness. And when the Word of God comes and you decide to begin to live in obedience to the Word of God, holiness comes and when holiness comes, anointing follows according to Heb. 1:9  It said because you love righteousness and you hate iniquity therefore God, even your God has anointed you with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. Somebody is going home tonight with the oil of gladness on his head and when that anointing comes upon you it will destroy every yoke in your life in Jesus name!  (Amen!)

Another basket that you will carry home, basket number six, is blessings for your family, because when you come to a meeting like this and you hear the Word of God and you hear about the power of God and the beauty of God and His mercy and His love and His faithfulness you begin to believe in Him. Now the Bible says inActs 16 : 31, it says believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved and your household also. I am prophesying to somebody here tonight, not a single member of your household will go to hell! (Amen!) Not only that, the Bible says the generation of the upright shall be blessed. In other words because you have come, you’ve heard the Word of God, you’ve made up your mind to live a life of holiness, even your generation – children not yet born – because of your blessing they too will be blessed. (Amen!)

Basket number seven that you will carry home is the blessing of popularity.Oh I told you before that that boy became the centre of attraction. You too very soon will become the centre of attraction in your city. (Amen!) How do I know that? God made a promise in 1 Samuel 2:30. He said those who honour me, I will honour. I don’t know who God is talking to in addition to me, but there are at least three people here that God will honour tonight – myself, my wife and somebody else. Who will God honour tonight? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

You know each time we read in the Bible and it talks about some people it will say, ‘Before him, there is nobody like him, after him there is nobody like him.’ I always pay attention to that one very much. Well there is somebody here tonight, after God has decided to honour you it will be said of you, ‘Before you no one like you, after you no one like you. (Amen!)

How do we honour God? The preacher who spoke before me had already told us. InProverbs 3:9-10 that’s where it says you honour the Lord with your first fruits. Offering is a different thing, seed sowing is a different thing, tithe is a different thing. It is only when it comes to the first fruit that God associates it with honouring Him. It said honour Him, honour the Lord with your first fruit. I will advise  all of us who are here, take the issue of the first fruits seriously. By so doing you are honouring God and when you honour Him, He will honour you.

And then, basket number eight that you will carry home is the basket of personal divine visitation. You know God is here, No doubt about that. Like the brother who spoke before also said, where two or three are gathered together in My Name, I will be there. So God is here. Not only that, when I was coming He came with me because He told me I will never leave you, I will never forsake you. So I know God is here. But you know when God is walking in a crowd, He would  look at this fellow and say, “I don’t think I want to stay with this one, I’m not sure I want to stay with this one. But then He will come to somebody and say, Ah I think this is the one I’m going to stay with. God is going to visit somebody here tonight.(Amen!)

How? Whenever God is pleased with the offering from someone He will pay the fellow a personal visit. You have already read the story before in 2 Chron. 1: 6-12 I don’t have the time to tell you stories but there have been occasions when somebody had done something for God that pleased God and God has told me, “Son I want to visit so and so. Since he can’t  see me, you be My representative, and those families, there are some of them here, they will tell you, from that day of visitation things were never the same again. I am praying for somebody here tonight that the Almighty God will visit you. (Amen!)

And then, basket number nine and that is the basket of the blessing of hope.You see many people when they look at their lives they think everything is hopeless: “They are talking about people becoming millionaire. Is it me they are talking about?” When you hear the word of God hope begins to well up in you. Col 1:27 it said, ‘Christ in you the hope of Glory.’ Let me tell you one thing brother, let me tell you one thing sister, as long as you are still breathing there is hope for you! I say there is hope for you! Tell your neighbour, “There is hope for me.”

I was talking to someone the other time. He said I came to the Holy Ghost Service and I heard a testimony. Suddenly I knew that it will still be well with me. I said what was the testimony you heard? He said I heard the testimony of your house help who went to Israel. Somebody came all the way from America, heard when I was saying one day… I was just prophesying like this to my children: “One day you will all go abroad….” And they all said ‘Amen’ But many of them didn’t believe. But there was this woman who jumped up and was saying  “Amen! Amen!’’ and so that fellow from America noticed  her: This fellow will be really happy to go abroad, I better help her. Like a joke, she got a passport. Like a joke, she got the ticket. Like a joke she ended up in Israel. There is somebody here tonight, you may not even believe it yourself now, but you are going to praise the Almighty God over the world! (Amen!) Oh yes that’s the truth of the matter.

Basket  number ten because of time, You too can carry home the basket of the blessing of being a blessing. From tonight onward your life can change and you can become a blessing. Anybody can become a blessing to somebody else. There is nobody in this world that is so down and out that he cannot  be a blessing to someone.  There were two people they put in prison. One was an old man and the other a young boy and they were giving them two slices of bread per day and the young boy was always hungry. The elderly man will take one of the two slices of bread and cut it into two and give it to the boy and say, “I am paying my tithe to you.” He was being a blessing in prison! From two slices of bread he was being a blessing in prison. There is somebody here  tonight who is going to become a blessing! (Amen!) I say you will be a blessing from now on! (Amen!)  Proverbs 11:25, the Bible says he that watereth shall be watered. It said the liberal soul shall be made fat.

Even though our time is running fast, there is a  story I must tell you on being a blessing. Some of you have heard the story before, Years ago when I was still in my first office here, I came here to the camp. I was alone here so that I can make as much noise as I wanted, praying in the night. I prayed all night. When it was morning I was tired and all of a sudden discouragement came. “Why am I killing myself? The people I am praying for did they care? I mean they don’t care – all they want is ‘Solve my problem! Solve my problem! Solve my problem!’ They don’t even want to know whether you eat, whether you drink! Their own is ‘Solve my problem!’ I am not going to kill myself!” I was in that mood when I dozed off. When I woke up, there was this young girl standing in front of my office, and said, “Daddy I don’t know whether it is the voice of God or whose voice but I heard somebody saying take this cake to Daddy GO.” That girl will never know what a blessing she was! I  took the cake, I blessed her, She left. I am not really a cake man but after she left God said to me, “I thought you said nobody cares.” I have never known discouragement since that day. An ordinary cake solved a major problem.

Now I never really have to worry myself whether you care or not, It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter anymore. I know there is somebody out there who loves me. He might not be able to say so, He might not be able to come forward with a cake. As long as there is someone out there, I will keep praying. I will keep fasting. I will keep doing whatever I have to do because somebody was a blessing. Who is going to be the next blessing? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Basket eleven that you can carry home is the basket of becoming a vessel unto honour. A vessel unto honour. In 2 Timothy 2 : 20-21 the Bible says there are all kinds of vessels. There are some vessels unto honour and there are some vessels unto dishonour and you can choose which vessel you want to be. There are some vessels who are always criticizing the Pastor: “They’ve come again. They want to take an offering – “Oooo! Money, money, money! That’s what they talk about…….” And there are some vessels who will be saying, “God keep our Father for us. This man who is working so hard, please don’t let him get tired.” There are some vessels who when they come, you don’t allow them to sit where they want to sit, Oh they will be angry with you for the rest of the day. And there are some vessels when they come in, they will thank God for those who clean the auditoriums. They thank God for those who clean the chairs. There are some vessels they are the ones doing the cleaning. There are some vessels before they go home now they will eat their bread and throw down the paper, they will drink their holy water or whatever they call it and drop the paper and they want somebody else to come and do the cleaning later. There are some vessels as they are going, every rubbish they see they pick it up: “This is the house of my God I want it to be clean!” There is somebody here who is going to become a vessel unto honour. (Amen!) I didn’t hear your “Amen” now to that. (Amen!).

Basket number twelve is the basket of the blessing of divine favour.Somebody’s is going home tonight with divine favour. (Amen!)  The “Amen” to that one should be bigger to any other one! (Amen!)  I’ve told you, if you can only have divine favour, Oh everywhere you go, people will be  falling over one another to help you. You yourself begin to wonder how? how? People have asked me again and again, ‘How did you manage to get to this place twenty years ago?’’ At that time this place was jungle, nobody is here. Now everybody wants to have a camp at the express way. At that time they all called me a mad man. But now they ask where did you I get the wisdom from? To come  at that time? How come little by little a city is already being built here? How come your own things are easy? How come? One word: “divine favour” that’s all. Somebody will go home with divine favour tonight. (Amen!) I say somebody will go home with divine favour tonight! (Amen!) How?Proverb 12: 1-2 it said if you will take your instructions from him then you will obtain favour of the Lord. If you will take instructions from Him. You will obtain favour of the Lord. And I’m sure somebody is here tonight who is ready to do whatever God says. Is there anybody like that here?  Are you sure? Let that fellow shout ‘Alleluia’ (Alleluia!)

I wish  I have the time, I can tell you  stories upon stories what is called divine favour. I will tell you just one quickly – just one. There is an association in America, they wanted to sell a piece of property in a very big city where land is very costly. They wanted to sell about 6.5 acres of land on which they built a big auditorium, forty rooms as offices all kinds of equipments. They advertised it for sale. It should cost millions of dollars, and we have one little church in that town and one of the Pastors who is just a very  funny  boy, decided to apply – he wanted to buy. And he told them he will pay three hundred thousand dollars that is not even enough to buy a plot of land not to talk of 6.5 acres of land. They said everybody should apply, I’m applying now! Let them throw my application away but I have applied. They got his application. What a joker! But they have to present the application to the Board. The Board took a look at the application and said ‘Sell it to him.’ So they wrote to him: Your application has been approved. Come and pay. He said, “I’m joking. I don’t have three hundred dollars, not to talk of three hundred thousand dollars. Sorry for wasting your time.” So they went back to the Board: “We told you that man is a joker. He has no money.” The Chairman of the Board said, ‘I will buy it for him. Let him begin to pay when he can”. Is there  anybody here who is going to find divine favour? Are you going to find divine favour? Let me hear you shout “Alleluia” (Alleluia!)

Alright now we come to instructions. This is the most important aspect of tonight – pay very close attention now. From the story of this boy, it is easy to see that the key to all- round prosperity plus twelve extra baskets of blessing is total surrender. The boy surrendered the entire lunch. But please listen to me carefully – this is where your life is just about to change. You will need to answer two questions quickly.

Number one: Will the abundant blessings God is about to give you hinder you from serving him? (No!) In Luke 5:1-11 the day God was going to call Peter into full-time  ministry He loaded his boat, two boats. The boats began to sink. And some of you very soon, because you came tonight, you will become so rich you won’t even know how much you have (Amen!) But will that hinder you from serving him? (No!)

Question number two. Will abundant prosperity become an idol in your life blocking your way to heaven? (No!) In Mark 10:17-22 A rich young ruler came to Jesus, “Ah I want to go heaven! What must I do to go to heaven?” “Oh be holy.”  “Ah I’ve been doing that.” The Bible said Jesus looked at him and loved him, Oh what a wealthy man! Holy young man! Wanting to go to heaven! And then said to him, “Only one thing remains, Go and sell all you have – give to the poor and come and follow me”. ‘Oh, he said, You have asked for my idol. I can’t give that!” The Bible said he went home with great sorrow. Prosperity became an idol in his life as a result of which he can’t even make it to heaven. God wants to prosper you in a way you can’t even dream possible now. Will the prosperity become an idol in you life?(No!) Answer my question! (No!) Good that is settled.  Then the following things must be noted.

Number one. Just one divine encounter is enough to set you up for life. Just one divine encounter. Solomon had only one major divine encounter with God, and very soon the Bible said silver and gold became like ordinary stones in Jerusalem. You can read the story from 2 Chron.1:6-15 Solomon gave a thousand burnt offerings to God and God decided to pay him a visit. God asked him, “What do you want? He said, “I want wisdom. I want understanding to serve you.” God said, “Fine everything you ask for I give to you. What you did not ask for I will add it so that there be no king like you before you and no king like you after you. ‘I don’t know what God is going to ask you to give Him. We are not talking of offering now. We are not talking of even a seed now. We are talking of  the Almighty God coming to you and saying, “My son, my daughter I want this from you!” Then you give Him and he decides to pay you a visit. One encounter – just one, for the rest of your life you won’t even know what is called poverty anymore.

Second thing you must know is that whereas one divine visitation is crucial, however, a divine habitation is better. One visit from Him is enough to solve all your poverty problems but you need divine habitation to keep life in and keep death out! Of what use is prosperity if you don’t have divine health? Of what use is a lot of money if you can’t even eat the food? Of what use is money on the day of death? 1 King 17:8-23 tells you the story of the widow of Zarephath she gave her last meal and prosperity came. But that was not all. She now housed Elijah – that the prophet of God was now dwelling with her. When death came knocking at the house, God chased death out. I am praying for you tonight that you will not only prosper but death will never come near your house again in Jesus name (Amen!) Please listen to me my beloved, I  am so concerned that I want you to prosper that’s why I am sharing this with you.

The third thing I want you to know is that the grace to give is a gift from God. For those whom God wants to prosper, when God gives you the grace to give it is because He wants to prosper you and anytime God wants to prosper somebody mightily He gives  him a little test, If you pass  the test God will have an excuse to say, Because you passed my test therefore I will do the following for you: Gen 22:1-18 God gave Abraham a test. Abraham passed and God beat his chest and said, “By myself have I sworn in blessing I will bless you. In multiplying I will multiply you”. I am praying for all of you who are here tonight, whatever test God will give you, you will pass in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Let me go a step further, the grace to be generous is a rare gift given to a few that the Almighty God gives to those whom He wants to honour and promote above all others. If you find that it is easy for you to be generous it can only mean one thing – God has loved you from the foundations of the world and sooner or later He wants to make you the head not the tail.

I was searching the Scriptures. What is the secret of Solomon? What is it that made this boy decide that he was going to give God a thousand offerings? There is nobody who has given a hundred before. This boy decided to give a thousand! Is it that God fell in love with him after the offering or before the offering? Because the Bible says God loves a cheerful giver and then I discovered no! Long before Solomon gave, it is already recorded in 2 Sam 12: 24 and God loved Solomon. God loved Solomon. So God had to look for an excuse to make this fellow he loved the richest man who ever lived. So he pushed him to give him a thousand burnt offering, so that if anybody should ask God, God why should you bless this fellow more than anybody else? God will be able to say, Tell me any other fellow who had given me a thousand burnt offerings? There is somebody here tonight, you know it yourself, that God loves you specially. Who is the fellow? Are you sure? Are you really sure? Then get ready for promotion! Get ready for what? Say it loud and clear because God will keep on pushing you. Give! Give! Give! When others are holding back, something in you will say, “I want to do more. I want to do more!” When God loves you specially He will put a generous spirit in you so that as you give generously He will respond generously.

Let me begin to round up. This is the probably the most serious of everything I have said so far. The brother who spoke before me said there are categories of soil That is true. Mark 4:2-9 told us categories of soil when a sower went to sow. It’s not every soil that is suitable for planting your seed. If you come and plant yam inside the auditorium, you know you are not going to reap anything. And let me very quickly rush over the categories of soils.

Wayside – What does wayside mean when we are talking of prosperity? The parties that you invite your friends to, that is sowing by the wayside. Luke 14:12The day they too invite you back to come and eat in their house your reward is already given to you.

Stony ground – is the giving you gave for show. Matt 6: 1-2 When you want to give and you give and say, “Everybody come and watch, I am the one! Look at the shirt Daddy GO is wearing, I am the one who bought it o!” You’ve already got your reward. That’s on the stony ground.

Among the thorns2 Chron. 9:7 Every offering that you give grudgingly that one is planted among the thorns. It is not going to produce any fruit. But then there is the good soil and the good soil are in three categories. Do you want to hear the three categories? I didn’t hear your “Yes”. Your “yes” has to be really loud. (Yes)

Thirty-fold: that is every gift you give to a brother or a sister or a member of the household of faith. Gal 6:9-10.

Sixty fold: the sixty-fold kind of soil that is when you give gifts to Pastors.Matt.10:41-42 the Bible made it clear that anyone who will give anything to a prophet will get a prophet’s reward. So those of you who don’t take care of your Pastors, you don’t know what you are missing. They are a very good soil. Sixty-fold kind of soil.

Hundred-fold kind of soil that is the High Priest. That is the gift you give to the High Priest. It is a pity that time has gone I would have wanted to take time to explain this one to you. The hands of the High Priest they are not ordinary hands,they are the hands for multiplication. When Andrew brought the five loaves of bread and two fishes. In the hand of Andrew they were five loaves and when he got to the hand of the priest it became enough food to feed five thousand men and there were twelve baskets left over. The hands of the High Priest, they are the hands that can pronounce special blessingsMark 10: 13-16 when they brought little children to Jesus He carried them in His arms, and laid the hands of the High Priest on them and blessed them. Let me tell you the truth my children – a “God bless you” from the High Priest is more than one year of prayers and night vigil by you. Why? Because when God says, this is my High Priest it means this is my representative. It means, I will not allow the word that comes from his mouth to fall to the ground. So when the High Priest says “God bless you”, before the saliva in his mouth will touch the ground, the blessing is already on you. That is why I am saying, from the bottom of my heart, to all of you who are here tonight: God bless you! (Amen!)

When you put a gift on the hand of the High Priest and he says ‘God bless you’ it means so many things. One of the things it means is that every curse that may be in your life up to that moment is already cancelled. It may sound very simple, you look at it and say how can that be? But you know yourself, that if somebody who had been standing trial for murder for several years, finally they find him guilty. The high court judge says go and kill him and he appeals to the Supreme Court, there is somebody called Chief Justice. If the Chief Justice says discharged and acquitted, what does it mean? Nobody dare stop him. It means  death is cancelled. It means sorrow is cancelled. It means retardation is cancelled. I stand here today as the High Priest of the Most High and I am saying to you: Every curse in your life is cancelled! (Amen!)  I don’t know why God should do it like that. That’s His way. That is why God says when you are taking your first fruit take it to the High Priest because one statement from him will be a statement directly from God and it will change your life completely.

This is the longest sermon I have ever preached at a Holy Ghost Service. I checked my time now and I discovered that I have been talking to you now for over three hours. There must be a reason. There must be a very serious reason. And what is the reason? I want poverty to become a stranger to you (Amen!) I want your joy to be full! I want the Almighty God to take you to the top! (Amen!). I don’t want to be father of a wretched people, I want to be the father of  the wealthiest people in the whole world! (Amen!). Is there anybody here who is going to be one of the richest people that ever came to this world? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Therefore if you are here and you have not given your life to Jesus why should you attend a glorious meeting like this and still go home without a single basket? Surrender your life to Jesus! Forsake all your sins and everything will change completely for you! So if you want to give your life to Jesus I will begin to count now to ten. If you don’t get here before I say ten I will know you don’t want to surrender your life to Jesus and I will not bother you but I have done my best. I have told you that our God is a good God. He’s willing to forgive your sins. He’s willing to save your soul. He’s willing to give you twelve baskets of blessing. If you want to give your life to Jesus come now. 1….2….3….4…..Remember, I am going to stop counting at 10 so wherever you are coming from you have to hurry up. 5…. This is your day of salvation! God has to have  your soul first before he can begin to do any other thing for you. You cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound. The Bible says, ‘God forbid.’ 6….. No doubt about it, God is love but that God is also a consuming fire. If you are not ready to surrender to Him then He will be your enemy and then you will have to pay the price. 7…… Please let me finish before you switch on your something over there. Don’t switch on any other thing let me finish please. Thank you. I don’t want any other problem with the microphone. Anyone who wants to give his life to Jesus, wherever you are hurry up now! I know some of you are from a fairly long distance but hurry and get here because it is now 8…….

When you come to the Almighty God He will forgive your sins and everything will become brand new. The Bible says therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature, Old things have passed away, behold all things have become new. But if you are coming to him you must come with the determination to repent of your sin and forsake all your evil ways and then he will receive you, he will forgive you, he will give you a brand new beginning 9 now. Those of you who are already in front you begin to pray! Call on Jesus Christ! Say, ‘Save my soul! Oh Lord! I Have come to surrender my life to you. Be merciful unto me! Be merciful unto me!’’ Those of you who are still coming hurry up! Make sure you get here before we finish praying. And the rest of us who are already sure of  our salvation, let’s stretch our hands towards these people and begin to pray for them, that the Almighty God who saved our own souls saves their own souls also. God will be merciful unto them that God will forgive all their sins, that God will write their names in the Book of Life, that God will give them a brand new beginning’’

And those of you who are coming hurry up you have one minute to go. Pray for these people brethren! Ask that the Almighty God will have mercy on them and the Almighty God will save their souls that He will be merciful to everyone of them. Pray for them brethren!  Let’s pray for them! Let ask the Almighty God to cleanse them in His blood, wash away all their sins. That from today things will change for the better for them, that they begin to do the Will of the most high God. Let’s pray for them brethren! Pray for them! Thank You Father!

Those of you who are still on your way hurry up now because we are about to pray. Make sure you get here before I finish praying. Cry to God, “God save my soul! I will do Your Will from now! Just be merciful unto me! Forgive all my previous sin! By Your grace I will not sin against You anymore! I will not sin against You anymore! Have mercy on me Lord! Thank you Father!’’ This is the last call. If there is anyone that is still coming this is your last opportunity! Last call! Almighty God is calling you for the last time! Tomorrow is not yours, it’s only today that you know. You have only this last opportunity now to surrender your life to Jesus, so hurry up quickly, hurry up quickly! Tomorrow may be too late, Tomorrow may be too late! tomorrow may be too late. Thank You Father! Glory be to God! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

My Father and my God I want to thank You for all these Your children who have come forward including those who are on the way, who are  already coming. Every one of them Lord, receive them in Jesus name!(Amen!) Forgive their sins in Jesus name.(Amen!) Cleanse them in Your blood in Jesus name.(Amen!) Save their soul tonight in Jesus name (Amen!) Write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus name.(Amen!) and beginning from now Lord, anytime they call upon You, answer them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Don’t let them go back to the world and let them serve You for the rest of theirlives. In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed. Amen! (Amen!) Praise the Lord Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

Those of you who are in front let me hear you shout “Alleluia” (Alleluia!) Good. I am rejoicing with you also and the Angels in heaven are rejoicing over you too. I promise you by the grace of God that as from tonight I will be praying for you so I need your names, your address and your principal prayer requests. So there are some Pastors that are waiting who will help me collect this information from you. After that you will return and then we will continue with the programme. So if you turn to my left, you see a brother who is waving a piece of wood, follow him, he will take you to where the Pastors are waiting. You can begin to go now. Congratulations. Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause for these people. Yes. Thank You Jesus! You can sing now if you want to.

You are about to cross from poverty to prosperity forever. So I want you to thank God that you came tonight, that the devil did not succeed in killing you before tonight, that everything he tried to make you sure you would not come tonight failed. I want you to thank God, just for a few minutes before we continue. I believe later on we’ll have an opportunity to dance, I was in Abuja last week and I saw great men and women competing with themselves to see who can dance the more. And I said when I get here I will tell you. When the big ones are competing on who can dance better and we smaller ones we can’t even dance things must change! I said things must change! (Amen!) I said things must change! You know why it must change? You have to begin to practice now, how you will dance when your prosperity comes (Amen!). So tonight when the time comes you will show God how you will praise Him when He has prospered you.

Oh Thank you Jesus! The one who is going to be the richest of us, let me hear him or her shout the biggest Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Thank you Jesus! Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Now you lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, “Father, I will obey you, Let me find favour with You tonight! ‘Go ahead and talk to the Almighty God. ‘Father as for me I will obey You. Let me find favour with You tonight! Let me find favour with You tonight! Almighty God let me find favour with you tonight!

(Amen!) And then you may be seated. Glory be to God!

Now it is time for ministration. Ministers please take your position. Anyone who needs the laying on of hands…………..

Now we will take only three testimonies tonight one from Mrs Hannah Okediji Another one from Wole Familusi and the third one from Rachel Faduroti. Those three people should come forward so that we can take their testimonies shortly. Now while we wait for them we will want to say thank You to God for a very, very wonderful night.

My name is Hannah Okediji from Ibadan I want to testify to the goodness of God based on the vow that I made to the Lord. We got married in the year 1990. Somebody informed us of the Holy Ghost miracle Service that was going on, on camp in 1992. First in the special Holy Ghost March Service of 1992 we started coming to the Holy Ghost Service. That time there was two major burdens in our heart, me and my husband – my job and the miracle of the fruit of the womb. That particular month Daddy ministered on “the barren shall conceive” and he ministered this message on different lines of life. That very month, at the end of the month I got my appointment letter. Then we started to remind God of the second testimony which is what I’m holding now. Between then and now God has blessed us with other miracles like academic breakthrough, ministerial breakthrough and some other prosperity. Like in 1995 and 2002 he added two degrees to my degree. Glory be to God! 

Now on the issue of the child that I am holding. In 1999, I gave birth to a baby boy. We named him. After two days the baby passed to glory. The Year 2000, June 18 I gave birth to another baby and before we were discharged from the hospital, the baby passed away also. The devil trying to tell us that the vow will not be performed. But I give God the glory that today the vow is performed because in May 8 this year this baby arrived – Glory Okikioluwa Okediji and I want to use this opportunity to thank the Lord for the life of our Father in the Lord. When this journey became too rough I have occasions of coming to camp and few other places for personal ministration. Despite his tight schedule, I remember a day I met him praying in his prayer room he had to come out one way or the other miraculously he had to pray for me. My prayer is that God will continue to promote him and all his entire family in the mighty name of Jesus. My charge to everyone believing God for miracle either child or any thing is that I want you to continue to persist with the Lord despite any threat of the devil because with my God all things are possible. Jesus will do it for you. He has done it for me in this past almost thirteen years He will do it for you. Praise the Lord! 

Praise the Lord. The testimony of our mother is that she had breast cancer She came for Holy Ghost Service and God healed her. Praise the Lord! 

Praise the Lord! My name is Wale Familusi I am giving this testimony to the glory of God. It all happened in 1990. I had a motor accident and I had an injury on my hand, so it involved to be stitched. I took it to the hospital, the first aid they gave me there, they stitched  the hand they did not bother to clean the wound inside the wound. I had broken windscreen inside it but they stitch it along with the broken wound. After some month when the thing got heal up I started feeling something inside it. So I took it back to hospital they open the wound again and took out a broken bottle from it. They believe they have taking all not knowing that one of it was still hiding somewhere. So after they stitch it again I left the hospital since that time I never felt anything again. 

Not until about a month ago – after thirteen years I started feeling pains on the same spot. I was wondering what happened, I didn’t know. I press it and I saw that pus was coming out of it. I was wondering what happened but to the glory of God about three days ago I discovered I was feeling some sharp object from that wound and I started praying that this thing God has shown it to me that it is a broken bottle that is inside there. So I called somebody and him them what can I do they said I have to take it to hospital to operate it. Glory be to God! 

We thank God for all the testimonies the problem is that my people are yet to learn how to just summarize it. He hasn’t got to the meat of his testimony. Like he said, there was a broken bone in the  hands. He prayed, had dream and he saw the GO visiting him and when he woke up he discovered that the broken bone had disappeared.  

The testimony can be given in one minute then we would have been able to take many more. But there is somebody here tonight who is going to give the next testimony. (Amen!) I know because God told me that there is someone here tonight, he said I will lift up your head (Amen!) and you will testify very, very soon! (Amen!)  

Now let’s stand on our feet. Father we want to bless Your holy name for a fantastic night. We know Lord that the back-bone of poverty is broken in our lives. Accept our thanks in Jesus name (Amen!) This is the offering of Your children. Father bless it, Use it for Your glory and everyone that had given tonight don’t let them ever lack again in Jesus name (Amen!) Beginning from today, everything your children will touch let it prosper in Jesus name (Amen!) As they go home now, go with them Lord! On the way let there be miracle! (Amen!) At home let there be miracle! (Amen!) By the time we meet again let everybody be full of testimonies! (Amen!) Thank You my Father. In the mighty name of Jesus I ask you to go in peace. God will go with you! (Amen!) God will bless you! (Amen!) God will prosper you! (Amen!) God will smile on you! (Amen!) From today everyday, you will have beautiful testimonies! (Amen!) You will never be weak! (Amen!) You will never be tired! (Amen!) You will go higher day by day! (Amen!) and in the kingdom of God you will not be found wanting! (Amen!) Very, very soon you will become unusually great! (Amen!) You will understand the meaning of a new breed of greatness (Amen!) So shall it be. You will not fail! You will not fall! God will be with you! God will prosper you! God will protect you! God will support you! Your joy will always be full! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) If you believe that shout “Amen” loud and clear. And let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) 

Alleluia!

THE INGREDIENTS OF GREATNESS

4th of July, 2003

The Almighty God said to Joshua, “No man shall be able to stand before you all the day of your life’.  So when Joshua came face to face with the Wall of Jericho he remembered the promises of God. He knows that God cannot fail. He knows that God will not lie, so when God asked him to shout he was more than willing to shout. There is somebody here tonight, every obstruction to your greatness is going to come tumbling down (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

The opposite of something is nothing. The opposite of great is small, there is someone here tonight who will not tolerate being small. (Amen!) There is somebody here tonight whose only choice is greatness. (Amen!) Now if you are that one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) The opposite of head is tail. Tail is useless – so useless that God did not give man a tail. There is somebody here tonight, whether the devil likes it or not that fellow is going to be the head! (Amen!) If you are that one let me hear you shout a real big Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

One straight line, move a little, move away from the altar a little! One straight line, one straight line, one straight line I don’t want it curved, straight line, one straight line! Alleluia! Alleluia!! Oh Lord God Almighty. Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Blessed be the name of the Lord! The wives of the AGO’S should join them, you can join the queue – one straight line, move a little further down. Just a little further down. Please move! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God. I want one straight line, please, please, please. Let’s do it quickly while the spirit is moving. Please move. Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Alleluia Father ! The line must be straight, it must be straight make the line straight, thank you! Ushers if you have to move chairs, move chairs. The line must be straight, Alleluia! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Now I need ushers quickly. I want you to stand behind these people and I mean strong ushers. Stand behind these people, Alleluia Father! Glory be to God! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Let’s hurry up, let hurry up don’t let’s waste this moment. This is a very awesome moment. Thank You Jesus! That’s fine, that’s ok! Make sure there is no chair behind any of these people. When I say stand behind them I mean stay close enough there might be some of them who will not be able to take this voltage that may fall, so stand behind them……

I have experienced God again and again and again in my life, but tonight the anointing is so heavy I have to transfer a bit of it if I’m to preach. And I’m going to lay hands on these people very quickly. If I were you those of you in front I will take whatever I can take now. Now the rest of us, you will stretch your hands towards them because the anointing can be transferred. Thank You Father! As I lay hands on them stretch out your hands by faith and take your own! Take your own! Take your own! Just keep on praying, keep on praying. This is an awesome moment. Thank You Father! Thank You Lord! Alleluia! In Jesus wonderful name we pray! (Amen!)

Now brethren, I want you to turn round, face these people and bless them, bless them, bless them! Pray for them, pray for the people on this side, pray for the people behind the altar, pray for every one of them! Go ahead! Stretch your hands towards them and just bless them, bless them, Release the new anointing you just received to pray for them. Bless them! Alleluia! Thank You Jesus! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Alleluia! So shall it be Jesus name Amen! (Amen!) And so shall it be in Jesus name (Amen!) So shall it be in Jesus name (Amen!)

Oh Yes brethren you can go back to your seat. Lets give God a big hand one more time. Oh thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus!  Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Alleluia! Alleluia! Thank You Jesus! Permit me to sit down for a while Alleluia!.

The name the name of Jesus………..Thank You Lord! Let me try and unwind a little by first of all thanking the various choirs that sang tonight, I think God Himself must have specially selected you for this night because you did very, very well. Every choir tonight did very well but without any doubt at all the second choir, the Hausa team did the best. I want the various choir masters present here tonight to take note of something. I have been saying again and again when you do well we don’t have to begin to tell the people to put their hands together. They will be clapping, you won’t be able to stop them. I counted the number of times that the people clapped, stopped, started again, clapped, stopped, started again – for that second choir – four times tonight, four times. That shows you clearly, that you are singing to a congregation that appreciates good things. If you sing well they will show it, they will show their appreciation. So when it is the compere now saying, ah you can do better than that, you know what that means. So you don’t have to copy other choirs anywhere else because they are all singing some American songs that had no meaning – nothing! So you too want to be like them? We are not interested in being like anybody. We want to worship God not entertain! We want you to sing and carry us into the presence of God. It is not like the people of the world. I mean the modern singer no problem! We are not singing to a modern God we are singing to God who is the same yesterday, today and forever! I mean you saw how people reacted! I want to say thank you very much to all of you. Every choir of tonight, you did very well. Thank you very much.

Now I want to thank God for the first preacher of tonight – that was good. I was surprised the other pastors were not standing and clapping when you left the altar – I was surprised because you are our representative and you did a very good job, you did a very good job, you did a very good job! Glory be to God. Ok, so I’m a bit normal now so we can talk. Alleluia! Amen!

I told you that this month we’ll be talking about a new breed of greatness. You see I don’t like always to say “God told me”, “God said” because it is not everything you hear from God that you should tell the people but because of the way He came down tonight, I will tell you something (Amen!) You see if you notice, you will observe that in March Special Holy Ghost Service, the theme of our Holy Ghost Service then was“The Beginning of Greatness”. If anybody had asked me I would have told them why that theme but nobody asked and I kept my mouth shout but because of the way He came down tonight I will give you a hint. Daddy told me that He’s about to raise up in the Redeemed Christian Church of God great men and women. (Amen!) That’s why I’ve been trying without telling you exactly what He said, that’s why I’ve been trying to push you in that direction. That’s why if anybody asks you now “How are you? what is your reply? “Great” Let me ask you one more time, “How are you? I’m great”.

Now you should tell your neighbour “You came in spite of all problems tonight, Make sure that you get the best tonight.” In other words remain on the alert. You can’t afford to come like this then go away without getting the best.

In Mark16:19-20 the Bible said,

So then after the Lord had spoken unto them he was received up unto heaven and sat on the right hand of God and they went forth and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word.

Confirming what? I can’t hear you! Confirming the word with signs following! (Amen!)

Every word that is preached, God confirms. It is only the words that are preached that God will confirm. Because God said, My word shall not return to me void. In Heb 2:4 the Bible says God supports His word  with signs and wonders and miracles. He will support His word that is preached with signs, wonders and miracles. That’s why Paul said in I Corin. 2: 4-5Paul was able to say boldly, When I came preaching to you, not human philosophy, not human wisdom but the word of God it was followed by the demonstration of the power of God. Brethren whenever salvation is preached, people will be saved because God will confirm His word. Whenever healing is preached, people will be healed because God will support His word, Whenever miracles are preached, miracles must happen! Let  me tell you the truth, wherever they preach prosperity, people will prosper. That’s why if you were not here last month, whatever it’s going to cost you, get last month’s tape and listen to it very well. Even if you came – because the devil will want you to forget, listen to it again and again, The Bible says, forever oh Lord, thy word is settled.

Anywhere people preach salvation, people get saved. You preach healing, people get healed. That is one of the reasons we don’t see healing in some of the traditional churches because they believe now that Jesus is no longer doing miraculous healing. Doctors are for healing now. That’s not correct. Preach healing, Jesus will heal. Preach miracles, Jesus will perform miracles. The brother who spoke before me tonight preached healing, I can guarantee you several people will be healed tonight. Last month I spent almost three hours preaching prosperity from the word of God. Somebody better get ready for prosperity! And now by the special grace of God I’m about to preach “Greatness”. Somebody is going to be great! Amen! (Amen!) I say somebody is going to be great! Amen! (Amen!)

But before I go further let me tell you the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Everybody can hear a sermon. It is not everybody that the sermon will affect. It’s not everybody who heard the message of salvation the day I was saved who was saved. Because the word of God says in James 1:22 Those who are going to prosper from preaching are those who are not hearers only but the doers. It is true that the Bible says faith comes by hearing but James 2:20

Thank You Father! Alleluia! This is going to be a special night. Amen! The Lord says there is someone here, He said I should tell you that as soon as I tell you, you will understand “Samson your hair is growing again”. Amen! (who ever that one is I’m sure you understand)

James 2:20 says faith without works is dead. You can hear salvation preached. You can be touched by the word of God. But when we give altar call you may refuse to come forward, and you go home a sinner. You may hear healing preached – wonderful preaching on healing but you may say that’s not for me and you go home sick. You can hear preaching of prosperity and you can turn round and see several people prospering and ask “ Why not me?” Prosperity does not come by praying, even though praying is important. It does not come by fasting, even though fasting is important. There is only one way out of poverty. Who can tell me? I can’t hear you! There is only one way out of poverty and that is by giving, by giving! Give and you shall be given. That’s the word of God. The elders have a saying, they say poverty will not allow the poor to prosper, They say when he should give a goat for sacrifice he gave a rat. There is only one way the word of prosperity will prosper you – it is by giving. Gal 6:7 it says you can’t mock God – whatsoever a man sows that is what he will reap. You give a rat you will get a hundred rats and hundred rats put together is not equal to a cow. You give a cow you are going to get a hundred cows. It is the law of God. There is nobody who can change it.

The Bible says God is no respecter of persons, He’s no respecter of persons. On the Day of Pentecost, a whole city gathered together to hear Peter preach, only three thousand received the message with joy and they got born again. Paul preached on prosperity more than any one else, But all the churches heard him and just said “Don’t mind him” Except the church of the Philippians. They are the ones who said, “If Paul said so it must be so.” So they began to do what Paul said – they began to give and Paul was able to say, My God shall supply all – how many? All my need according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus. The grace to be doers of the word, not hearers only, the Almighty God will give you this month! Amen! (Amen!)

There are many people who will say, “Well there have been so many prophecies but I have not seen any come to pass in my life”. If you don’t do what God asked you to do how can the prophecy come to pass? If He asked you to witness and you don’t witness, He asked you to worship Him, you don’t worship Him. When it is even offering time you give grudgingly, when the word of God says God loves a cheerful giver – don’t blame God! God is straightforward, you can’t bend Him. He doesn’t change with time.

Several years ago when I began to travel to America and they hear of the little work God was doing in our midst then…. “And what can we do to help you”. I’m not a beggar. The God in America is the God in Nigeria. Everything you see here, by the grace of God is made by naira not by dollars. The God of Nigeria! I keep telling them,  “Come and see”, Now they are beginning to come and they begin to say, “But they said Nigeria is poor”. Who told you? We are not poor  Is there any poor fellow here? No! Any great person here? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Let me tell you – Do what God says – the blessings will come. It may appear to take some time but it will surely come! Blessing and curses they work alike. Jesus cursed the fig tree and the disciples looked at the tree. The tree was as green as ever. Jesus said no man shall eat of thee anymore forever. Nothing changed. I’m sure Peter must have been talking to John: He cursed the tree! Nothing happened to it. The tree is as green as ever! Until the following day, they discovered that the tree has died – from the root. The elders have a saying, they say: they cursed a little child with Iroko tree and he began to look back, does he think it will die the same day?

When the man of God says “God bless you,” don’t think that is an idle statement. The moment he says that, ways begin to open. That’s why I’m saying “God bless you!” (Amen!) I say God bless you! (Amen!) Now Gen 12:1-3 Because there are great people sitting down here tonight, You are not just going to be great you are going to be very great! (Amen!) If you won’t say “Amen” then I will not bless you anymore because Amen means “so let it be”. I say there is somebody here, you will not only be great you will be very great Amen! (Amen!)

What are the ingredients of greatness? What are the things you see in a man’s life and you say he’s great? I will try to rush but since there is no go-slow now we can wait till 6 a.m. no problem. Gen 12:1-3:

Now the Lord had said unto Abraham, Get thee out of this country and from thy kindred and from the father’s house unto a land that I will show thee and I will make of thee a great nations and I will bless thee and make thy name great and thou shalt be a blessing and I will bless them that bless thee and curse them that curseth thee and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Let’s just take those words now and see the ingredients of greatness so that you can know what is coming into your life.

Number one when God wants to make anybody great he will bless the fellow. When God blesses you it means everything, everywhere will begin to help you. Even the ground you walk upon will begin to help you. When you are blessed where others sleep and fail, you won’t. Animals will begin to help you. I mean wild animals will see you coming and they will begin to dance.…. When you are blessed even witches will help you!

I will tell you a stories tonight because this is a very special night. When I was younger, there was a woman in our compound a self-proclaimed witch. If you want to know how terrible she was her child gave birth and after the naming ceremony the child began to have serious stomach pain. After all kinds of things had been done and no solution, they went to check from an oracle and the oracle said, go and ask the mother. So they asked her what is the trouble? She said on the day of the naming ceremony of the child they killed a chicken and threw away the intestine without asking her! “You want to eat the intestine of a chicken?” she said “Yes” “So if they kill another chicken and give you the intestine will the stomach pain end?” She said “Yes” so they killed another chicken, they gave her the intestine and the stomach pain disappeared so that’s the kind of woman I’m talking about. Just follow me, I’m going somewhere.

In those days when we want to study at night, we had no money to buy coffee but kola nut, plenty around, so we eat kola nut to keep awake. But one day this witch called me and said, “Stop eating kola nut.” I did not know the meaning. I got home. I told my mother. My mother put her two hands on her head. I didn’t know that the easiest way to poison somebody in those days was to give the fellow poisoned kola nut. Somehow she must have heard or may be she was even the one planning to give me poisoned kola nut but because I am blessed – it came from her mouth: stop eating kola nut! Every force, whatever their nature, from tonight, rather than working against you they will be working for you! (Amen!)

And you see when you are blessed even wild animals will see you and they’ll begin to dance. Some days ago I was in America in our Redemption Camp there and since God told me that all the surrounding land there He has given it to us, I decided to walk on the land to claim what God said He has given me. As I was going there was a farm there with two wild dogs! Big! You know how oyinbo dogs can be big! Big!  They saw me coming, very early in the morning and they rushed, barking furiously and I just kept going and all of a sudden they began to dance…. From today even snakes will dance when they see you Amen! (Amen!)

If you read Gen 22:26-27 Isaac said that a field that has been blessed of God will smell different. A field that has the blessing of God will smell different. A blessing from God is a summons to everything to begin to help you. Man will help you! Land will help you! Rain will help you! The air will help you! Because you are blessed of God! Tell your neighbour “I am blessed!” Say it loud and clear – “I am blessed!”

The second ingredient of greatness is unusual multiplication. Unusual multiplication. God said to Abraham I will make of thee a great nation. One fellow. God said he will become a great nation! I’m telling you brethren there are people here looking at you today – you alone will become a great nation! (Amen!) I say you alone will become a great nation! (Amen!)

Less than forty years ago the entire Adeboye family – my father, his two wives (the man had two – he tried) and all of us children put together we numbered thirteen. Today by the grace of God I will tell you how many we are but we are already becoming a nation! Is there anybody here who is going to become a great nation? You better shout “Amen!” loud and clear! (Amen!) Ingredient number one God’s blessing, number two unusual multiplication.

Number three – a great name, God said to Abraham I will make your name great Pro 22:1 It said a good name is better than silver or gold. When God gives you a great name your name will open doors. (Amen!) Lets just take an example. Is there anybody here that somebody can come and say “I need a loaf of bread” and I say “Why should I give you a loaf of bread”? “Oh it is Pastor Adeboye who asked me to go and get from you” How many loaves will you give the fellow? Very soon when they mention your name doors will open! (Amen!) I say doors will open! (Amen!)  That’s why when God wanted to give Jesus Christ a prize for the sacrifice He made on the Cross, He gave Him a name that is above every other name that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. Very soon, when they mention your name demons will run in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Ingredient number four of greatness is that you become a blessing!When we are begging you “be a blessing” it is because you are not yet blessed that is why is difficult for you to be a blessing. The elders have a saying they say when the eyes are full it will drop on the nose. The kind of blessing that God is going to give you, you will not be able to hide it (Amen!)  I say you won’t be able to hide it! (Amen!) It is only when you have one car that you will say, I’m my own driver. If you have twenty you have to employ drivers and if you employ drivers you will feed the drivers, you will feed their wives, you will feed their children. Let me tell you tonight there are people listening to me now, very soon you won’t even be able to count your aeroplanes! (Amen!) Psalm 23:5 David said thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over. The cup of joy of somebody is going to run over! (Amen!)

Ingredient number five…. I’m rushing because they are plenty – there are at least twenty of them that I want to share with you. I will keep the remainder to myself. Don’t worry.

Number five is to become a blessing carrier to friends and associates. When we say somebody is great, his friends automatically begin to share in the greatness. I told you a story once. I was in London and we were trying to collect our luggage and there was this young man that said, “Daddy just show me your luggage and I will collect them for you. “So I was pointing to them  and he was bringing them. And one of his friends called him who didn’t know me at all, he said, “why are you…….. “He said, “That’s Pastor Adeboye he’s a Pastor of the fastest – growing church in the world etc” And the fellow was saying, “un..h…un.. un and then finally, he now stood upright and said, “And he’s my Dad”. Immediately that fellow took his attention away from me and now was looking on “that’s my Dad”. He suddenly became great because that is his Dad! A time is coming when people will say, I am a relative of yours! (Amen!) Everybody will bow! If you believe that you better say “Amen” loud and clear! (Amen!)

Let me read a passage to you in Gen 13: 5-6:

And Lot also which went with Abraham had flocks, and herds and tents and the land was not able to bear them that they might dwell together for their substance was great so that they could not dwell together.

When God has made you great every one of your relatives shall be great also! (Amen!) Because God said to Abraham I will bless those who bless you.

Thank You Father!

All kinds of healing are going on. Somebody who have been suffering from migraine, it’s gone now.

Somebody who felt insects crawling all over your body you won’t hear about them anymore (Amen!)

Ingredient number six is that you will become a danger to your enemies. Why? Because God says to Abraham I will curse those who curse you. The brother who preached before me, he said, tell your neighbour that your trouble is in trouble because God will trouble your trouble! (Amen!) I don’t know if you heard that one, Tell your neighbour again, “Your trouble is in trouble because God will trouble your trouble!” (Amen!) All the enemies that want to fight against you will be fought by God. That’s why many of them will become your friends by force because suddenly they will see somebody behind you – oh this is not somebody to fight!  Isaiah 49: 25-26 God said any of these people who said they will not let you go. God said he will feed them with their own flesh (Amen!) He will cause them to drink their own blood. So you become a terror to your enemies.

Ingredient number seven: world fame. God said to Abraham he said through you shall all the nations of the world be blessed. In other words throughout the world they will know you. You may not believe it but I know there is somebody here very soon the whole world will know your name!(Amen!) All you have to do is to tell them you are redeemed by the Lord and they will kneel down and say, Please lay your hands upon my head because we know your hands must be special”. Do I hear you say “Amen” to that? (Amen!) How can this thing be?

We have just came back from the American Convention of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and one of the guest speakers, a very big man there came to see me before he went to preach. So he said, When did the church start in America? “I said, “Ten years ago’’ he said, “How many parishes do you have now?” I said, “154”. He said “What?” I said “Yes sir. 154.” I saw the way he was looking at me. I said, “But some of them are still very small – about 50 people.” He said, “How can this be?” Because he has been in America for forty years preaching, great man, and he still has only one church! You came ten years, from one to 154! How can this be? That is the question they will be asking you very soon (Amen!)  The we say we saw you at the beginning of 2003, How come? How did you make it? And you will tell them: in July 2003 I was present at an unusual Holy Ghost Service and my greatness began! (Amen!) If you believe that let me hear you say “Amen” loud and clear! (Amen!)

Ingredient number eight we will find in Gen 15:15 God was speaking to Abraham and said: And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace. And thou shalt be buried in a good old age. Ingredient number eight of greatness is peace. Peace at home, Peace at the place of work, Peace when you are travelling, Peace when you are coming home. Pro 16: 7 It says, When a man’s ways please God he will cause even his enemies to be at peace with him. Tell your neighbour: “Very soon my enemies will leave me alone!” You know, you pursue somebody you think you can catch. But when they see how far God has taken you they will say leave that one alone, his own is different in Jesus name! (Amen!) You know God said in Isaiah 48:18 -19it says if only you will just be obedient to me, I will give you peace like a river… peace like a river. Peace! That is going to be your portion from now on in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Ingredient number nine: Long life (Amen!) what do I call it? “Long life” In Psalm 91:16 God said, with long life will I satisfy him – with long life will I satisfy him. I was sharing with ministers some times ago, I said last year as I was approaching the age of 60 I was walking through the camp at night praying. I was thanking God for what He had done but I was crying out my heart to Him: Father there is still so much land to occupy. I’m getting old, the sun is setting! Suddenly He spoke, He said, “Son, I am the One who decides when the sun will set. I am the One who decides. Tell your neighbour, “You are not going to die young!” Say it loud and clear! You will be surprised that Abraham lived to be 175. Gen 25:7-8 Abraham was 175 years old when he died. Suddenly it occurred to me: it’s the devil who’s trying to tell me that I’m old. God says I’m the One who decides, Anybody who thinks I’m going to die yet is making a big  mistake. I don’t know about you but I’m not going to die young. Say it as if you mean it!

You know up to last year before I heard God speak, I was even teaching, telling you, you know what I used to do when I was young. I don’t do anymore, that when we started building this camp I used to carry a bag of cement of my right, a bag of cement on my left. And I will say I am balancing the equation but now I won’t even try it again. I’m telling you, I’m already doing it again. I refuse to die young! (Amen!) How old are you when you are just 60? It is the Almighty God who said that the age of man will be 120. It is David who said 70, the Lord said 120, 120 is what the Lord said, Which one do you choose? Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

By the way, there is somebody who had been stooling blood go and check you are not stooling blood anymore! (Amen!)

Some 20 years ago I had the opportunity to preach at the birthday of Alake of Egbaland. At that time he was 68 years old. So I said, “ Kabiyesi, David said 70. The Lord said 120. If you agree with David you have two years to go. If you agree with the Lord….  Kabiyesi said: “ I agree with the Lord.” This year he’s 88 and he’s going strong – How many of you will live long? Let me hear you shout “Amen” like somebody who is young (Amen!) So all of you who are 50 who are already looking for walking stick wake up my friend! You are a child! Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia)

Ingredient number ten: God did not only promise Abraham long life, He said good days, good age, He’s not talking about just living to be old and then continue to live in sorrow, No Psalm 34:12-14, it says you can live long yet see good days provided you keep your mouth from speaking guile. You know, in the past when I see some old people and I see the way they are suffering, I will say, it will better to go when it is good oh! But one day I saw Gen 35:28-29 Isaac died at the age 180 years! But that’s not the important thing. The important thing is “and his sons buried him!” He was 180 and his children were still healthy and strong. From now on none of your children will die. (Amen!) You will no longer bury any of your children. (Amen!) It’s your children who will bury you! (Amen!) Alleluia!

You want to hear more or we should go home? Lets look for more ingredients of greatness. 2 Kings 4: 8-13 Because you are going to be great you need to know what is coming. I will read it to you verses 8 -13:

And it fell on a day that Elisha passed to Shunem, where was a great woman and she constrained him to eat bread, and so it was that as oft as he passed by he turned in hither to eat bread, and she said unto her husband “Behold now I perceive this is an holy man of God, which passeth by us continually. Let us make a little chamber I pray thee on the wall, and let us set for him there a bed, a table, and a stool and a candlestick and it  shall be when he cometh to us he shall turn in hither. And it fell on a day that he came hither and he turned into the chamber and he lay there. And he said to Gehazi his servant, “Call this Shunamite” And when he have called her, she stood before him and he said unto him say now unto her behold thou has been careful for us with all this care What is to be done for thee? Wouldest thou be spoken for to the king or to the captain of the hosts?” and she answered, “I dwell among my own people”

Ingredient number eleven of greatness is material abundance. Oh you are going to prosper. (Amen!) I thought  I will hear “Amen” to that one (Amen!)  You are going to have everything in abundance: food in abundance, clothes in abundance, cars in abundance, houses in abundance and health in abundance. This woman was not just rich she was wealthy.

Deut 28:1-2,11, God says if you will just obey me, I will bless you so much you will say “God this is too much!” And then you’ll be running from the blessing, and the blessing will be pursuing you and overtaking you! I know God is not talking to everybody. Those that He’s talking to, they know. I say blessing will be pursuing you. (Amen!) And overtaking you! (Amen!) That’s what God said. Then He said, in verse 11, He said, “I will make you plenteous in goods”. Don’t believe anyone who tells you that a sign of a good Christian is poverty, poverty is a curse and every curse in your life had been broken tonight! (Amen!)

If you are a Christian, Abraham is your father. Is that correct? I say is that correct? What did the Bible say about Abraham? Gen.24: 34-35This fellow was speaking and he said, “I am Abraham’s servant, and the Lord has blessed my master greatly and he has become great and He has given him flocks, and herds and silver and gold and male servants and female servants and camels and asses. (Amen!) The God of Abraham is my God. I say the God of Abraham is my God! There’s no reason why I should not have goats, sheep, naira, pounds, dollars, houseboys, house girls, drivers, gardeners, guards, pilots….. that’s what the word of God is saying! If you will obey God that’s all! It says it is God that will make you plenteous in goods, He will do it, He will do it..

Ingredient number twelve: May be you should tell your fellow: if you don’t want to  prosper ask God to send your own to me. If you don’t want to be plenteous in goods ask God to send your own portion to me. I will use it for the kingdom. Ingredient number twelve of great people, of greatness, is generosity. That’s one of the ways we know great people. This woman was generous. Elisha did not go to her and say, ‘Please I need an offering.’ No, no, no! She is the one who said, “Come and eat in my house.”

Years ago after a lot of struggles when God was calling me to the ministry. I didn’t want to answer. The reason  I didn’t want to answer is that if I become a full-time,  then I will be fed from offerings of the people. Me? I came from a very poor family but we were very poor and proud. We used to say, “We know you are eating cows. Everyday you eat chicken. We don’t eat meat until Christmas but you are not the one feeding me. You are not the one feeding me. You may be richest in the world as long as you are not the one feeding me, don’t bring any nonsense near me!” So we were poor but we were proud.

Then I struggled, I struggled with God’s help and finally I got PHD and I said bye-bye to poverty. Suddenly God now said: Drop that! Become a Pastor. So that these people now can say we are the one feeding you? – market woman will say…? I told God, “No way no way!” I said, “Look, I will be earning my salary. I will take the money for food, the rest I will give to You. I will still do any work You want me to do.” Of course finally He won. And then one fellow came to me, “Now you are going full-time! Anything you need, come and ask me.” “Ah! Me? Come and ask you? I will rather die of hunger! Ask you?” That’s the way many of us are. But things are going to change.

Many of us wait until somebody comes to come and beg for help, “Help me I’m a Pastor I don’t have the school fees of my children”. “They’ve come again now! If I don’t give him now I don’t know what kind of prayer he will pray!” That’s  no sign of greatness. Great people are generous people. They won’t wait till you ask – they give!

Where I was born, where I was brought up. If I come to visit you and you ask me “Will you eat” what do you expect my answer to be even if I’m dying of hunger? I will say, “No I am full.” If you want somebody to eat in your house and he comes to visit you, what should you do? You put the food on the table and say, “Come O!  The table is set. Please come and eat!” Some of us want to be great. Generosity is an ingredient of greatness.

I remember years ago I met a man at the Airport in London and I was trying to come to Nigeria from somewhere but horribly and all the money in my pocket was just enough to buy an economy ticket. The man saw me where I was buying the ticket, He said, “What! You? With all the children you have in your church?  I know so many people that you can just go to and say give me first class ticket and they will be able to give you,” I say, that’s the problem – I will never ask. Till I die I won’t beg. You will never beg again, I say you will never beg again (Amen!)

And let me warn you, before your greatness comes one of the ingredients of greatness is generosity. Pro 11:24 it says there is one that scattereth….. what happens to him? Yet he increases. You want to increase? you want to multiply? Keep scattering? Be generous. If you have all the money in the world, you are a miser, you are not great. The Bible says give a portion to seven and also to eight. Ecc 11:2, Ecc 11:6, it said in the morning sow thy seed, afternoon, evening sow thy seed. Committed generosity is ingredient number twelve.

Ingredient number thirteen is recognition and submission to Godly authority. This woman even though she was wealthy, still went to get permission from her husband, before she built a house for the man God. She could have said, “It’s my money, not your money, I can do what I like with my money! I’m going to build a house for the man of God. It is a good thing I’m about to do. So what’s your concern?” But she submitted to the authority of her husband.

Exo 20:12 It said honour thy father and thy mother, that your days might be long. How many of you want to live long? Honour your father, honour your mother, honour your pastors they are your spiritual fathers. That way your days will be long. Honour those who are put in authority over you. Pro 27:18 He that waiteth on his master shall be honoured.  Honour your master. You never can tell, you may become master one day. In fact you are going to become master very soon. Elisha was pouring water on the hand of  Elijah. At the time he was doing so he didn’t  even know he will be taking over the position of Elijah but he took over and became greater than Elijah.

Let me tell you one thing it may be difficult for you to believe but there are some people sitting here now, who will be greater than Pastor Adeboye (Amen!) I didn’t hear your “Amen” to that! (Amen!) That’s my desire – that my children will be greater than I. So that if Jesus tarries, if you my children are greater than I, then after I have gone you will carry on the work because you will be greater, you will be wiser, you will be richer, you will be more anointed! I didn’t hear your “Amen” to that! (Amen!)

Ingredient number fourteen is freedom from any form of bondage.The man of God asked the woman “Do you need help? Shall I go and talk to the king for you to give you your freedom? Or should I talk to the general maybe so they can give you some military contract?” The woman said, “ I live among my own people. I am free. I don’t need help”. As long as you are poor you can’t say you are free. The Bible is very clear in Pro 22:7 it saidthe rich ruleth over the poor and the borrower is a servant to the lender. Very, very soon every debt you are owed will be paid. (Amen!) Let me hear your “Amen” loud and clear! (Amen!) And after that one you will never borrow again! You will be free from poverty! You will be free from anxiety! You know if you are a debtor you can’t say you have peace like a river because you don’t know when the creditor will come and knock at the door. Freedom from every form of bondage.

Ingredient number fifteen is contentment. The woman told the man of God, “Don’t worry yourself I am content”. You know contentment is a wonderful thing. To be content is a wonderful. 1 Tim 6:6 it says, Godliness with contentment is great gain. There are some people, it doesn’t matter how much they have, they are never content. They may have a thousand pairs of shoes, the moment they see you wearing one that is different from the one they have – different design – they lose their joy. “Ah! Where did you buy that shoe from?” And you want to make yangatoo and you say, “From Singapore.” And he knows he can’t go to Singapore. Immediately his joy is gone. There are some people no matter how rich they are, the moment they see somebody who is slightly richer they lose their joy!

But great people are contented. They wake up in the morning, eat their bread and egg, They thank God. If they feel like soaking gari in the afternoon in spite of all their wealth they will soak the gari with some sugar in it – they are contented. They may have a house full of food but they will get one boli, eat the thing, wash it down with a bottle of coke – they are contented. I pray that the grace to be contented God will give you in Jesus name! (Amen!) It is discontented people who steal. They are the ones who steal. They are the one who inflate the cost of materials. They are those who are going to buy something for God and they will go and meet the customer and say, “Increase the price”! Great people know that it is God who will make them great. Not crookedness No, no, how God will make you great leave that to Him and be contented.

Very quickly since we are already at fifteen, we can quickly add the remaining five.

2 King 5:1 talks about somebody again who is great. We can learn from him. Now Namaan, 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. What are the ingredients of greatness?

Number sixteen – reaching the top. Namaan was Captain; he wasn’t Lieutenant, he reached the top. Somebody is here tonight, it doesn’t matter the obstacle the world may put in your way, you will reach the top in Jesus name (Amen!)  Because God promised in Deut. 28:13 it said, I shall make you the head and not the tail. Say it loud and clear, “ I will be the head not the tail!” Reaching the top.

Number seventeen. It said Namaan had favour with his master. Ingredient number seventeen of greatness is favour with superiors, particularly favour with God. Somebody here tonight is going with favour with God! (Amen!) Favour in the morning, favour in the afternoon, favour in the evening, favour in the night time. When you find favour with God then you know all is well. Favour can change death to life. Esther was supposed to die when she went to see her husband the king, because the king did not call her, but she found favour and the king said instead of you dying you will be my second in command, You can have half of my kingdom. Beginning from today, everywhere you go, you will find favour with God!

Ingredient eighteen is honour, they said Namaan was honourable. No matter how rich, nobody will call a thief a great man because a thief is not an honourable man. You, in your own greatness you will be honourable! (Amen!) The plan of the Almighty God, according to Psalm 8:4-5, is that God wants to crown you with honour and glory and that’s the exactly what is going to begin to happen to you now. (Amen!)

Ingredient nineteen is victory. Victory! There is no greatness in defeat and from today you will never suffer defeat again. (Amen!)  Because God promised when the enemy comes against you one way, they will flee how many ways? So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!)  A great man is a man who can sit down and enjoy in the presence of his enemies and David said, “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies”. I want you to know that the greatness God is going to give you, is the greatness the enemy cannot do anything about.

Ingredient number twenty is might, strength, vitality. There is no use becoming old and then becoming a vegetable. When the Almighty God decides to make you great He will give you long life, you will see good days, and you will remain healthy. I don’t know if you understand what the Bible meant in Deut 34:7 The Bible said Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eyes were not dim and his natural forces were not abated. You know what that means? It means that if Moses wanted to have a child at the age of 120 he could have had one – he was that strong! He could read without glasses. I’m not saying there is anything wrong with glasses. Keep using it until God says no need, because that is coming – ah! I can assure you! As your greatness begins your strength will become like that of the eagle. You will grow younger day by day and suddenly your eyes will become brighter and brighter and you will not use the glasses anymore! (Amen!) If you believe that say “Amen” (Amen!)

I still have a lot to say but I want to stop now. But I want to stop by saying one thing – what is complete greatness? Complete greatness means greatness without a but. In all cases we have mentioned Abraham started by being barren, By the time God finished with him his barrenness was gone. The Shunamite woman, great as she was, was barren. By the time God finished with her she was barren no more. Namaan,  great as he was, was a leper. By the time God finished with him, he was no longer a leper. I’m prophesying to somebody here tonight, every reproach in your life shall be removed in Jesus name! (Amen!)  Your greatness shall be complete! (Amen!) No but! No reproach, no barrenness, no sickness, no sorrow, no poverty! Let me hear you say “Amen!” (Amen!) if you believe that stand on your feet! Stand on your feet! Give the Lord a big round of applause! Clap like a great person! Clap for the Almighty God! Alleluia!

Now it is only God who can make you great but God is not going to make His enemy great and if you are not born again you are an enemy of God. So if you are here tonight and you are not born again the word of God says we cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound. If you are still living in sin and yet you want God to make you great, you have to run forward tonight and come and give your life to Jesus so that he can save your soul and your greatness can begin.

I will count up to 10. If you want to give your life to Jesus get here before I say 10. The rest of us we can stretch our hands to them as they come and pray for them that God will save their souls! Those of  you who want to give your life to Jesus, come now! I will begin to count – 1…..2….3……It’s up to you. If you want to die small it’s your choice. You cannot continue in sin and expert God to make you great, so if you want to give your life to Jesus come now 4………5……6. This is the day of salvation. Everybody knows that God is here and you can hear all that I have said and still refuse to pay attention. The choice is yours. I can’t force you. The word of God has gone forth. He will confirm His word but it is up to you to decide whether you want him or you don’t 7… now before the Gate of Mercy will close. Hurry up quickly! If you know you want to come, come now! 8 now…..

God loves you that’s why He brought you today. Whoever invited you is your best friend ever, he brought you for salvation so that your greatness can start. 9 now! That’s the final call. Now those of you who are already in front begin to talk Jesus Christ and ask Him to save your soul! Tell him you’ve come to surrender your life to Him now, that by His grace you will no longer go back to the world of sin! And the rest of us let’s stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them and ask God to save their souls and forgive all their sins. Pray for them brethren! Those of you who are still coming hurry up! This is the hour of salvation.

Let’s pray for them one minute: That the Almighty God will save their souls! That He will be merciful unto them today! And cleanse them in His Blood. And remove all the stains of sins from their lives! So that they can have a share in the greatness. Let’s pray for them for another 30 seconds.The Almighty God in His infinite mercy will be merciful unto them! Will save their souls! Let’s pray for them!

Those of you in front, cry to God, ask Him to save your soul! Be merciful unto me O Lord! Save my soul! Forgive my sins Lord! And I will serve you for the rest of my life! I will serve you for the rest of my life! Be merciful unto me Lord! Forgive all my sins and I will serve you all the days of my life! I will serve you! Those who are still coming I want to pray now come quickly. Get here before I pray. Come and ask God to save your soul! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. (Amen!)

My Father and my God I want to thank You today for Your word. Oh what a great God You are! What a great God You are! Receive our thanks in Jesus name (Amen!) Father look down on these Your children and be merciful unto them! Forgive their sins! Save their souls! Cleanse them in Your Blood! Write their names in the Book of Life! And don’t let them ever go back to the world, in Jesus name! (Amen!) From tonight, when they cry to You, answer them in Jesus name! Thank You my Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! Amen! (Amen!)

Now those of you who have come forward for salvation let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) I want to rejoice with you because from today when you pray God will answer. Number two. From today I will be praying for you that’s why I need your names and address and your principal prayer requests and that’s why you have to give me the correct address because when I collect this information and I go to God and I ask him to send you your miracles, the miracles will be sent to the address that you put down so make sure your address is correctly given.

Now there are some Pastors waiting that will help me collect this information so if you will follow this brother who is waving a piece of wood he will take you to where those people are waiting and then you come back quickly after they finish with you. We will wait till you come before we go to the session of prayer. You can begin to go now. Lets give the Lord a big round of applause. Do you know that today is your day –  that’s why the devil struggled so hard that it will be hard to get here today but you made it! Congratulations! So for about three minutes I want you to thank the Almighty God that you are able to come today! Just thank Him, Bless His holy name! Praise Him! Give Him Glory, that you are able to come today. Praise Him! Praise the Lord! Praise Him!

We are going to pray a serious prayer tonight but even as we are doing that those who have testimonies to give should please go behind the Altar. There are some Pastors waiting there to attend to you, to listen to your testimony. So if you have any testimony from the past Holy Ghost Services, go to the back of the Altar now. The prayers we want to pray tonight I don’t need to beg you to pray them. If you like – pray. If you like –  don’t,  but as usual the first prayer is going to be a shout of praise……. Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Thank You Jesus! Alleluia! Amen!

Now lift up your voice to the Almighty God. The prayers are going to be brief so pray with all energy.

Lift your voice and say “Father, tonight, lay a solid foundation for my greatness”. Go ahead and talk to the Almighty. “God please lay a solid foundation for my greatness. This night, Almighty please lay a solid foundation for my greatness! Lay it tonight! Lay a very solid foundation for my greatness! That the world will know that this is of You! A solid foundation for my greatness! For my greatness tonight! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Then you say: Father, make me a doer and not a hearer only that all Your blessings may become mine. Lets talk to the Almighty God. “Make me a doer of Your word, not a hearer only that all Your blessings will be mine. That all your blessings may be mine! Make me a doer of Your word. In every facet of life make me a doer, that all Your blessings may be mine! Make a doer of Your word not a hearer only. Make me doer of the word. All the days of my life I will be a doer of your word, that all Your blessings will be mine. Glory be to Your name!” Thank You Jesus in Jesus mighty name we have prayed (Amen!)

Anywhere I go let me find favour with God, let Your favour go with me Lord, Favour in all areas of  life let me find favour! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Just a couple of prayers more now You will say to the Almighty God, “Father trouble my trouble tonight! Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! Father, trouble my trouble tonight!

MIGHTY TO HEAL

8th of August, 2003

Let the sister’s alone shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Good! Now let’s hear the brothers shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) As you have been told, the history of somebody is about to change tonight! If you are the one let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

As at 5pm last night, the number of babies born during this Convention has increased to 51: Girls 24, Boys 27. So let the girls shout “Glory” And let the boys shout “Alleluia!” (Alleluia!)

I told us at the beginning that this Convention we will never forget. You will not forget this Convention for blessings! You will not forget it for miracles! You will not forget it for signs and wonders! You will not forget it for master breakthrough! You will not forget it for uncommon favour! You will not forget it for divine wisdom!

In Num 14:28 God said to Moses: Tell the children of Israel, as I’ve heard in my ears so will I do unto them. As I have heard in my ears so will I do unto them. So now I want you to talk to God – He says whatever He hears from you is what He will do for you. So tell Him: You are the Great Physician! All power belongs to You! It’s impossible for You to fail!  My problem is not too big for You to solve!  You are the King of Kings, You are the Lord of Lords!  You are the Rock of Ages! You are the Unchangeable Lord! You are the most high God! I know you are stronger than the strongest! I know you are stronger than all my enemies! I know you are going to give me a testimony tonight! Tell Him what you think about Him and as He hears from you that’s how He will do for you! Tell Him that all power belongs to Him! Tell Him He’s the Almighty God! Glorify His name! Praise Him! Tell Him how wonderful He is! Tell Him how loving, how glorious, how mighty! Tell Him – You are the King of Kings! You are the Lord of Lords! You are the Unchangeable Lord! You are the Lord of Hosts! You have never lost a battle! You have never failed. You are not going to fail tonight! Oh yes. You will fight my battles for me and You will give me victory tonight! You are the Alpha and the Omega so You can re- write my story tonight and I just want You to know that I love you Lord that You are powerful! You are kind! You are good! You are wonderful and I will worship You. I will bless You! I will bless You! I will bless You! I will bless You! In Jesus name we worship! (Amen!)

If anybody were to ask Solomon, “What is the greatest day of your life? Is it the day you became a king or what?” Solomon would have answered, “It was not a day, it was a night. A night that God visited me and asked me to ask for what I want.” God is going to visit somebody tonight! (Amen!) I didn’t hear your “Amen!” (Amen!) I said God is going to visit somebody here tonight! And then if they now  asked Solomon further, “How did it happen?” He would have said, “Oh, some few hours before I had really thanked God. I said thank You to Him one thousand times. I thanked Him like nobody had thanked Him before. Then He visited me”.

God is visiting somebody tonight! (Amen!) And that fellow, if you can find a place where you can kneel – you go on your knees before Him and just worship Him… just worship Him, worship the Almighty God! Praise Him along with me. If all you can say is “Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!” Just keep on worshipping Him! Magnify His Holy name! Say,Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You for saving my soul! Thank You for healing me! Thank You for blessing me! Thank You for doing marvellous things in my life! Thank You for being there for me! Thank You for forgiving all my sins! Thank You Lord!

Angels are singing, you are worthy oh Lord…………. You are worthy o Lord………..

And the Lord is saying, it shall be said of this Convention that the Almighty was there. (Amen!) And I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty and say, “Father be here for me! Be here to solve my problem.” Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! It shall be said of this Convention  that  the Almighty God was there. Almighty God be here for me! Be here to solve my problem! Be here to heal me! Be here to set me free! Be here to give me a breakthrough! Almighty God! Be here for me! Be here for me! Open your mouth and talk to Him! Almighty God be here for me! Be here for me today Lord! Meet all my needs! Show Your power on my behalf today! Be here for me Lord! Be here for me! Be here for me Almighty God! Be here for me! So that Your name might be glorified – be here for me! Thank You my Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) 

Father, we thank You for Your goodness! For Your faithfulness! For Your patience! For Your abundance. Accept our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen!) We 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 Nigeria! Thank You for peace in our time! Thank You for Your church! Thank You for the young! Thank You for the old!  Thank You for the choir! Thank You for the Ushers! Thank You for the guards! Thank You for the Engineers! Thank You for the midwives! Thank You for the Doctors! Thank You for the Pastors! Thank You for everybody! Glory be to Your Holy name Lord! Glory be to Your name! Tonight Father, like never before! Visit Your children! Do marvellous things! Glorify Your name! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Shake hands with two or more people and tell them God will surprise you tonight! (Amen!) God will surprise you tonight!  (Amen!) And then you may be seated.

I want to thank God for the lives of all of you who are here, I want you to know that the Almighty God himself had spoken. He said “It will be said of this Convention that He was here,” And I can assure you that wherever He is there will be miracles, there will be signs, there will be wonders and they are going to happen in my life! (Amen!) I said they will happen in my life. If they will happen in your life too let me hear you say “Amen” (Amen!)

Now they are here with their babies. Then two years ago some people also came trusting God for the fruit of the womb and when they came to last year’s Convention they were already pregnant but I told them it is not the pregnancy we want to see but the babies. So those who came two years ago and came last year pregnant but now they have already got their children and those who came last year and the children had already come, both of them I want them to bring their children forward now so that we can bless them. So either you came last year and now the babies have come or you came two years ago, the baby came after last year’s Convention – bring the children now for blessing. Bring them from all over the place and as they come let us sing and praise God. I will worship Jesus forever……….That’s alright we will dance a little more….

So the Bible says we should rejoice with those who rejoice. Look at these thousand of families where sorrow has changed to joy. I can’t see why anybody should see this one and not want to dance! These are people who were considered barren who are now bringing their children and they are still coming, they are still coming! Let’s rejoice a little more. All those who are going to have children they said they should rejoice with those who have children. Lets have another one! And they are still coming, I can see them coming, I can see them coming, I can see them coming like a river on my right hand side. Only God can do this. Let somebody shout “Alleluia” to that God. (Alleluia!)….. Look at that. Oh Lord! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! E wa wohun ti Jesu se………. And they are still coming! They have not ended yet! Oh, what a great God we serve! There are some people who said that the miracles we talk about are things we arranged. Did we arrange this one? Can this one be stage-managed? Now let me check how many twins did we have? 1..2.. let me go and begin from this corner – that’s wonderful! Let me check… Those who are barren for more than ten years before the baby came let me see your hands. Ah! So many! I think the record last year was 19 years. Is anyone here who had been barren for more than 19 years before the child came? Ok, thank God that God is already reducing that one. Glory be to God! Now those of you who are still coming, keep coming. How many years was that one? 19 years! That fellow had been barren for 19 years? That equals last year’s record! Ah isn’t the Lord good? Those of you who are in front let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

You know it’s not possible for me now to begin to take your testimonies because time is against us. But make sure you share your testimonies in your various branches to the glory of God. And I also want you to tell all your friends, all relatives, even your enemies but by the special grace of God next month’s Holy Ghost Service will be specially for the fruit of the womb. (Amen!) As the Lord lives, we are going to drive barrenness outsides of  Nigeria!

Now I want everybody to please stretch their hands towards these children and just bless them – that God who had given them to us will let our joy last forever; that sickness will stay away from these children; demons will stay away from them; they will not die, but they will live to become vessels unto honour in the hands of the Almighty. Pray that God will provide for their parents so that they will be able to train these children in the fear of the Lord. Pray for them and then go ahead and pray that barrenness will become a stranger to us in Nigeria. Pray for them brethren, for another one minute just pray for these children. And those of you who are still bringing your children forward, keep coming, keep coming – make sure you get here before I pray. Thank You Jesus!

Father! I just want to thank You for these thousands of homes where sorrow has been changed to joy. Accept our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen!) Thank You for bringing your children to conception and You brought them to safe delivery and now we can see the parents and we can see the children. Accept our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen)  Father bless these children! (Amen!) Keep sickness away from them! (Amen!) Keep demons away from them! (Amen!) Keep death away from them! (Amen!) Let them grow to become mighty men and women of God! (Amen!) Prosper their parents! (Amen!) and let it be well with them! (Amen!) And all those who are trusting you for the fruit of the womb even before they come in September surprise them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Thank You my Father! Glory be to Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) Next month we will pray again, specially for those trusting God for the fruit of the womb. We will have the Holy Ghost Service as usual but we will definitely give special attention to those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb.

Tonight we want to talk about the “Mighty God”, The God we serve is mighty to heal. in Gen 17:1 The Bible said when Abraham was 90 years old and 9 the Lord appeared to Abraham and said unto him, I am the Almighty God. The Almighty God. How mighty is He? The Bible says inGen. 2:7 that He breathed into ordinary clay and it became a living soul. That’s how mighty He is. In John 9…

Thank You Father – God said He’s going to breath on somebody here tonight. (Amen!) I said God is going to breath on somebody here tonight! (Amen!)

In John 9:1-7 this mighty God touched ordinary clay and it became eyes – ordinary touch from Him. In Matt 8: 1-3 He touched a leper and leprosy disappeared. That is good news for all those who are here tonight who might have sickness or disease that are considered incurable. God is going to touch you tonight. (Amen!) And you will be healed in Jesus name! (Amen!) We have had series of testimonies of those who had been considered HIV positive and Jesus touched them and they were made whole. He will do the same thing here tonight.

How mighty is He? Just a word from Him is enough to heal – just one word!  In Matt 8: 5-13 The Bible said the centurion came to him and said, “Please, my servant is sick and I want him to be healed.” Jesus said, “That’s no problem. I will come and heal him.” The centurion said, “ You don’t have to come. I know who you are. You are the Almighty. Speak a word only.” God is going to send a word to somebody here tonight! (Amen!)

He’s so Almighty that His voice raised the dead. He stood before the tomb of Lazarus and said “Lazarus! Lazarus! Come forth!” And problem started in the grave. Death said, “Which of you is Lazarus?” Lazarus said, “I am the one!” Death said, “You want to get me into trouble? I can hear the voice of somebody calling you. What are you doing here?” Lazarus said, “You are the one who brought me.” Death said, “In that case get out quickly!” Everyone of you that the enemy had captured, my Father will speak to you tonight. He will hear His voice and he will let you go in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Thank You Father!

The Lord said there is someone here, they said you have slipped disc. The Lord has put it back into position now. (Amen!)

He said there is someone here, your eyes have not been focusing and when you are looking at something you see double. Check now you are seeing one. (Amen!)

In Luke 7:11-17

Thank You Father!

The Lord said there is a woman here, your peculiar problem is that your belly will be big at night and by afternoon it will be normal God asked me to tell you check your stomach its not swelling anymore. The problem is over completely.

In Luke 7:7-11 I hope you will let me preach tonight……

The Lord said there is someone here the doctor told you that the problem with eyes is that of a detached retina. The Lord said what is detached he has already re-attached.

How mighty is He? A woman was going, a widow, going to bury her only son and my Father met this woman on the way and said, “Stop”! He said to the woman, “Weep not” And the Lord is saying to somebody here today, after tonight the only time you will weep it will be for joy! (Amen!) And He then touched the coffin… like I can share with some of my children recently when He touched the coffin He was saying to that coffin, “ Enough is enough! That’s how you carried the husband of this woman and now you are carrying the only son. If I don’t stop you, very soon you’ll carry the woman.” Everything that has been carrying you into sorrow God will stop it tonight. (Amen!) You better say “Amen” loud and clear. (Amen!) And then He spoke a word to that boy and said, “Come back to life!” And immediately the source of sorrow became a source of joy. Everything that is causing you sorrow shall soon become a testimony (Amen!)

How mighty is He? In Jer. 18:1-6 He said, I am the potter you are ordinary clay and I can do whatever I like with clay. That’s good news….

The Lord said there is someone here, the problem is that suddenly your eyes started protruding. The Lord said I should ask you to check-it has gone back to normal. Everything is back to normal now. Glory be to God! I told you I don’t know whether He will allow me to preach tonight.

He said there is someone here, you have always been very embarrassed by the size of your nose because you think it is too big. Ask your friend to check. Since I started preaching, your nose has gone back to the normal size. Let somebody shout “Alleluia!” (Alleluia!)

But because He is the potter and we are the clay that’s why He can replace anything in our body that needs to be repaired. If the potter is working with a clay and something went wrong he will start all over again and put it right. In Mark 3: 1-5 the Bible tells of a man who had a withered hand. The hand was okay before but little by little it shrunk and became withered. When the potter came in he spoke to the hand that was withered. He told the man, “Stretch forth your hand! “He wasn’t able to stretch it before, but now because the potter has spoken, suddenly the withered hand became whole. There are many of you here who used to be absolutely whole but now certain things had withered. I have good news for you. There will be full restoration tonight. (Amen!) You better answer “Amen!” loud and clear!

In Mark 2:1-12 They  brought a man to Him. He was paralysed from the neck downwards and my Father, the potter, spoke. He said, “Get up, take your bed and go home.” The man who was paralysed from the neck downward suddenly became whole again. It doesn’t matter what the nature of your sickness may be, the Potter will repair you tonight. (Amen!)

And it doesn’t matter how long the problem had been there. In John 5: 1-9 The Bible tells us of a man who had been sick for 38 years. When the potter came there, He spoke with His word of power and immediately the one who has been sick for 38 years became well. I don’t care how long you have been sick, the Almighty God will heal you tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Not only can He repair, He can replace. If you read 2 King 5: 1-14, when he decided to heal Naamon, the Bible said, his skin came back to him like the skin of a new born baby. The skin was replaced with a brand new one! Somebody is going to get a brand new heart from God tonight! (Amen!)

About 2 years or 3 years ago some of you will remember we held a Holy Ghost Service at National Stadium and the word of God came while I was preaching that there was a man there, one of his kidney has been removed, the second one is also malfunctioning and the Lord said I should tell the fellow that He has give him two brand new kidneys. The only man who had that problem said, “Glory be to God!” Monday, he ran to the hospital where they normally do the dialysis for him and asked them to do a test and they did the test, And they said, “What happened?” The Doctor said, when they were giving the testimony he said, “I know this case, I know this case because when we were removing one of the kidneys everything went wrong and the operation took us 17 hours so I know this case very well. But what am I seeing? This man should have one kidney but now he has two!” Today somebody here will get a new heart! (Amen!) I say you will get a new heart (Amen!) You will get new eyes! New ears! new brain! new womb! new hands! new legs! New back-bones and whatever you need that is new, you will get it in Jesus name! (Amen!) If you believe it let me hear you shout “Alleluia!” (Alleluia!)

How great is He? He said, I am the God of all fleshJer. 32:27  I can see him standing upright, beating his chest just in case you don’t know me, I’m the Lord, the Lord of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me? Tell your neighbour, “My own will not be too hard for God!” That’s how mighty He is. I mean, can you imagine somebody telling a woman who was 90 years old that she is going to have a baby? “Sarah you will have a baby boy”. Sarah laughed, “What kind of a joke is that! At 90? The last time I menstruated was more than 40 years ago! If you are going to give me a baby what were you looking at all these years?” Everyone of you that doctors have told you cannot have your own baby when we come for next year’s Convention you will be among the crowd dancing! (Amen!) So shall it be in Jesus name! Thank You Lord!

Daddy says there is someone here, your problem was a weak bladder and you normally go to the toilet at least once every one hour or so, The Lord asked me to tell you, you should have noticed that since we started this evening you have not gone to the toilet because He has given you a brand new bladder. Let me hear somebody shout “Alleluia!” (Alleluia!)

The Lord said there is someone here, He said it a woman. It is not your period yet and yet you are bleeding profusely. He asked me to tell you to check, the bleeding has stopped.

The Lord said there is someone here, that you had this strange cough, It’s like a dog barking. He said but you should have noticed you have not coughed since we started and you will not cough again. (Amen!)

So we know He’s the Almighty. He can breath to clay and the clay will become a human being, Touch clay and clay will become eyes, He can touch coffin and the coffin will stop carrying you to the burial ground. He can replace, He can repair. He’s the God of all flesh. Nothing is too difficult for Him. Like I told my children some weeks ago. He loves to hear a challenge. When he hears somebody say, “It is impossible!” then He gets happy. When the doctor says you are incurable then God says, “Now let’s show them who is the original doctor!” Anytime He hears “impossible” then He says, “Right, now let me show them who I am!” Everyone of you here who had been told that your sickness cannot be cured, you will have a testimony very soon! (Amen!)

Now we know He’s the Almighty but does He want to heal? Oh Yes! Matt. 8:1-3 A leper came unto him and said, “I know You can make me clean, if You are willing.” “In fact, I am willing, that’s why I came!” In Act 10:38The Bible says He went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil. Some people said that the sickness in your body is put there by Jesus. That’s a lie! Some people said sickness on you has been brought there by God. No, don’t listen to them. There is no sickness in heaven. It is whatever a man has that he can give out. In heaven no sickness: Satan is the owner of sickness. And every load that belongs to Satan in your life shall go back to sender tonight! (Amen!) You better say “Amen!” loud and clear! And that’s why I want to advise you – The way some of you talk shows that you are ignorant of this important fact. You sneeze two times and they say, “How now?” And then you answer and say you have cold. Cold does not belong to you it belongs to Satan! Tell them, “I’m sneezing but cold belongs to Satan!”

You want to pray for somebody – what is the problem? He said he has diabetes. If it is your own keep it. Say that the doctor says the devils want to put diabetes on me and I refuse. Sickness is not my own! Say it loud and clear! If anybody asks me what do you have? I will say I have joy, I have health, I have strength, I have power – sickness belongs to the devil. The devil will want you to keep it if you want but send it back to the sender!

He’s not only willing to heal you. The Bible says in Matt 8:16-17, it said when the evening was come, they brought all manner of sick people to him and He healed them all! How many of you will agree with me tonight that God will heal everybody? So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Now thank You Father!

The Lord said there’s a woman here, the pregnancy in you has not been moving for the past one week but about two “Alleluias” ago the baby jumped back to life and you can feel the baby already kicking!

The Lord said there is someone here tonight it’s not only your palms that are always sweating even the soles of your feet are also sweating. The Lord asked me to tell you to check, they are all dry now and that problem is gone forever! (Amen!)

Ah!  the Lord said there is someone here, you had a dream and they stabbed you in the chest in the dream and you woke up. From that moment it was serious pain! You’ve gone to all hospitals and they say there is nothing wrong with you but you know that the pain was there. God asked me to tell you to check. The problem had been sent back to the one who brought it to you! (Amen!)

Now while the Almighty was here He went about doing good but even then in those days because of how mighty He is, once in a while when He wants to do something extraordinary, He will just pick one of his prophets and work through their mouth.

In Eze 37:1-10 The Bible says God took Ezekiel to a valley full of bones, dry bones. The Bible says, And lo they were very dry! So God asked His servant: “can these bones live?” “If these people were just freshly dead, I would say, with You all things are possible. Even if they have just started decomposing I know how mighty You are,  but they decomposed, they became only bones – dry bones, very dry bones.” He said, God I don’t want to annoy you, My answer to your question is that You are the only one who knows the answer to this one. God said, “That’s good enough. Now you, you who said I’m the only one who knows the answer, you are the one who will speak to these bones. Tell the bones – live!” Ezekiel said, “That’s not too hard to do! You want me to say it? I will say it and leave the rest to You. Bones live!” The bones lived. The same God asked me to speak tonight to all dry bones, dry wombs, dry heads, dry eyes, dry ears, dry pocket accounts, live in Jesus name! (Amen!)

One of my daughters just went to the hospital for a check up and what they saw so frightened the doctors they gave her a report and said, “Hurry now go abroad immediately”. So she came to London and booked an appointment with the top hospital there. But I happened to be in London at the time. So she came and we talked and I said, “Don’t mind the doctors, there is nothing wrong with you”. She said, “Amen!” And then went to the hospital the following day.

Thank You God Almighty. I can see one of my daughters already moving. Keep moving! You will get stronger as you move, keep moving you will get stronger as you move! Glory be to God! Every wheelchair shall be emptied tonight. Just keep moving! Glory be to God!

And so this my daughter went to the hospital and you know the Bible said, “Say ye to the righteous, it shall be well with him”. Everyone of you here tonight, it shall be well with you in Jesus name! (Amen!) So she got to the hospital and the doctor read the report and said, “And where is the owner of this report?” She said, “I am the one”. The doctor said, “No! if this report is about you…… whoever they wrote this report about should come here in a wheelchair” “I am the one!” “Ah! In that case, straight! We will admit you! Let’s conduct a test!” And they conducted a test and there was nothing there at all! Every report that is evil about you, I tear it tonight! (Amen!) You better say “Amen” loud and clear! (Amen!)

Some of you will remember a brother, he gave his testimony here. He was sick. They said his heart was bad beyond repair and he was running around to gather money to go abroad to see if there can be somebody who will give him a new heart. And then he heard that we were having a Holy Ghost Service in Port Harcourt and said, “Let me go there, you never can tell.” And as he was stepping on the stadium ground the word of God came that somebody is getting a new heart. He said, “Ah! Nobody knew I was coming! God! Can this be true?” That was Friday night. Monday he went back to his doctor. The doctor examined him and said, “What happened over the weekend because this is not the heart that I saw last week?” Everyone of you here in need of a new heart, a new lung, a new womb, anything new, receive it now in Jesus name! (Amen!) I say receive it now in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Now all you need to receive this miracle from God, after you have surrendered your life to Jesus like the first preacher said, after the quarrel between you and God had been settled, all you need left is faith. I have said it before – God is not a talkative. The Bible says God has spoken once, twice have I heard this, the power belongs to God. Let there be light and there was light. He doesn’t have to waste His words because He’s the Almighty. Even me, a small boy under Him, when I tell a Pastor, ‘Pastor you are moving from Lagos to Port-Harcourt.’ I don’t have to repeat myself. As soon as I said that, he will go to his church and say bye-bye and tell them in Port-Harcourt, “here I come”, not to talk of the Almighty. He speaks and it is done. So when God speaks twice you must pay attention. It means what He’s saying is very serious. When God speaks the same thing three times that thing is dangerously important. But four times! Four good times God said, the just shall live by faith: Hab.2:4, Rom.1:17, Gal. 3:11, Heb 10:38 – four times God repeated himself. That should tell you clearly that all you need to live, to be healthy, to be strong, to receive miracles from God is faith. The just shall live by faith. He also said if you can believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Thank You Father!

The Lord said there is someone here the doctors told you that one of your lungs had collapsed and the second one is even giving you trouble so that breathing was quite a problem. He asked me to tell you, you have two brand new lungs now. (Amen!) and you can breath very, very, well.

So he said in Mark 9:23 if you believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. I heard a testimony recently. Somebody was terribly sick. The skin of the body was clinging to clothes. If she covered herself with clothes the clothe will just pull the skin up. So in the hospital they keep her naked, under a net, to keep the flies away and she kept saying, “Ask Pastor to come and pray for me. Tell Daddy GO to come.” And they told her Daddy GO is not in. It was Easter period – Daddy GO is not in. And suddenly she had an idea. You know the Christmas greetings cards that I normally send out where my picture is? She said, “Ah bring that one. That’s his picture. If I can touch that picture I know I will be well!” She touched the picture and that was the end of the problem. Now what is in ordinary cardboard? It wasn’t the cardboard that healed her – it was her faith!

I know somebody who said he was mad but before he went completely ‘gone’ he told the people, “Take me to Redemption Camp. If I get there I will be well.” By the time they brought him, they have to handcuff his hand, shackle his leg and as soon as they brought him in, mad as he was because his faith has spoken before he went gone. They told me what he said. I said. “In that case let him step on the ground.” I think about four police men came with him because he was violent. “Pastor we can’t remove his handcuff.” I said “Remove everything! Are you not the one who said if I can just get to Redemption Camp I will be well?” They said that is what he said. That’s all! Remove the handcuffs Remove the shackle! Ok it is at your own risk.” They removed the handcuff, they removed the shackle and he was completely normal. Who healed him? I have not even prayed! And in any case he didn’t say. ‘Take me to the GO!’ he said, ‘Take me to Redemption Camp!’

Let me ask you a question how many of you believe that God will solve your own problems tonight? Let me hear you shout “Alleluia!” loud and clear (Alleluia!)  You better say it loud and clear (Alleluia!)

Once you have faith, only one thing remains for you today, that’s to pray – to ask God to heal. And He will. He has never said no to prayers of faith. After He has healed you of course, then you must be willing to live a life of holiness. Because He said to a man that he healed after 38 years he said, “Sin no more or something worse will happen to you.” So if you are not ready to live holy don’t ask him to heal you tonight. Continue to manage the one you have now, instead of asking for something worse. But if you are ready to live holy, we will be praying very soon and He’s going to surprise you. I didn’t hear “Amen!” to that! (Amen!)

Everyone that God healed, He kept on saying, “Thy faith has made thee whole.” And like I used to tell my children who will say, “We prayed before and nothing happened!” Then pray again! The Bible says, He that knocketh to him shall the door be opened. If you knock at the door and you know the landlord is in – You knock the first time and he didn’t answer, knock the second time he didn’t answer – if you like you can go but if you like you can say, “If you don’t answer me, here will I stay and keep knocking.” After some time he will say, “Let’s answer this trouble-maker so that this knocking will stop.” God is going to answer somebody here tonight. (Amen!) Are you ready to pray? Are you ready to pray? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Now our prayer tonight is going to be in this form.

Thank You Father, The Lord said there is someone here, there is something like fire going up and down your back bone….so before I finish the fellow has got it! The Lord says he has put out the fire!

And there is one…. I like this one I like this one. This must be me: the Lord say there is someone here that He is about to do a special favour for. (Amen!) Now listen to the special favour: He says He’s subtracting 15 years from your life! (Amen!) So those of you who have been saying I am 61, go and do your mathematics again. I am only 46 from now on! (Amen!) Whether you believe it or not there is someone here who is going to be 15 years younger! (Amen!)

Now the way we are going to do the prayers tonight, because the Lord spoke to me once and said that many people who came for healing they didn’t get their healing because of the spectators. They are watching to see, ‘Will God do it? Will God do it?’ and He says He’s not an entertainer, He’s a miracle-worker, so the time we are going to pray for those on wheelchairs and other people who are brought on beds is also the time you too will be praying. So if you like, leave your own prayer and be watching. So please ministers of God as soon as we begin to pray, you please go to that section and minister to these people. God is going to surprise us tonight. (Amen!) In the meantime maybe those people could move just a little bit forward. Not much, just a little so that there will be room for ministers of God to reach them. Thank You Jesus!

Is that all you are able to do? Let me hear you shout “Alleluia!” (Alleluia!) Now you are going to close your eyes – don’t cheat yourself of your miracle and don’t bother about the others. Close your eyes! Cry to God and say, “Father be merciful to me! Anything between me and healing tonight put it under Your Blood.” Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! Lift your voice to the Almighty God! Father be merciful unto me, anything between me and healing tonight put it under Your Blood! Put it under Your Blood! Put it under Your Blood! Glory be to God! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) 

Now this is just to help you pray more. At least two of the people on the wheel chairs are already walking. At least I’ve seen two now. Like I said, take your attention off them, concentrate on your own. Lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, Father increase my faith! Call on the Almighty God now. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! 

Now the miracles had continued. There are many more now that are already moving. So it is your own turn too to receive your miracle. Lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, Father repair whatever needs to be repaired in my body and replace whatever you have to replace!” Let’s talk to the Almighty God. Glory be to God in Jesus name we have prayed (Amen!) 

And now you will lift up your voice to God and say, “Father make me whole! Not just my body, but my soul, my spirit, my business, my marital life and my children! Make all of us whole!” Lets talk to the Almighty God! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)  

Now it’s time to pray for Nigeria. You just say, “Father, heal Nigeria!” And if you come from any other country substitute the name of your country. Go ahead talk to the Almighty God. “Heal Nigeria oh Lord! Heal our economy, heal every sickness that is befalling this nation! Make Nigeria whole O Lord!” In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)  

Now maybe you have somebody precious to you, who cannot be here tonight. You can send prayers to the person. Pray for such people now. Somebody you know to be sick or is in hospital. Somebody precious to you. Pray for the fellow now, that the Almighty God will heal that person now – even now as we pray! Pray for the person now and say, Lord heal, heal this person, heal this person! In Jesus name we have prayed! 

I want you to join hands now. The word of God says one of you will chase a thousand but two of you will put ten thousand to flight. When we combine, the miracle will be more. Pray for the fellow you are holding and say,Father make this your child whole!” Go ahead pray! Almighty God make this your child whole! Make him whole – completely whole! Body, soul and spirit – make him whole! Make him whole! Make this your child whole Lord! Make this your child whole! Make this your child completely whole! Make this your child completely whole! Make this your child completely whole! Make him completely whole – let him become whole body, soul and spirit from the top of his head to the sole of his feet. Make him whole Lord! Make him absolutely whole! Even as we are praying make him whole – to the glory of your name make him whole! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) 

Now I’m about to pray for you and I want your “Amen!” to be loud and clear. This is the moment, so raise your hands to heaven. In the mighty name of Jesus! (Amen!) Thank You Father! In the powerful name of Jesus! (Amen!) Father, I thank You because You always hear me and I know You have heard me again tonight. Glory be to Your Holy name! Accept our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen!) Father, tonight heal Your children! (Amen!) Body, soul and spirit! Heal them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Heal their businesses! (Amen!) Heal their marriages! (Amen!) Heal their homes! (Amen!) Heal all those who are precious to them! (Amen!) Father, healNigeria in Jesus name! (Amen!) Heal every nation represented here! (Amen!)  All those who are precious to these your children who are not here, heal them also in Jesus name! (Amen!) And those who are well and have no sickness at all whatever miracle they need that will make their joy full – give to them in Jesus name (Amen!) Father give them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Father, give them now in Jesus name! (Amen!) Thank You Father! Glory be to Your name! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) 

The Almighty God has raised up and they are walking. Link them with those people who are going to get down their testimonies and then you can go back to your seat for now. We may come back to you later. All those who are already walking let them go and meet those who will listen to their testimony at the back of the altar. If you are the one that prayed for that fellow please make sure you lead that fellow to the place. And you are one of those who pray for the fellow rather because we need the front here for the next set of ministrations. Glory be to God! Thank you Jesus! Give the Lord a big round of applause for what He has done. Thank You Jesus! Thank You Lord!

Is that all you can do? I don’t want to tell you how many He had healed. Like I told you He says He doesn’t want it to appear as if its entertainment. If you can walk now, walk now. Don’t go back to the wheelchair, walk! No matter how little the steps you are taking, keep taking them. As you walk now you’ll get stronger, stronger and stronger. I may have to seize some of these cameras. They don’t even know when to take pictures and when not. Glory be to God! Keep moving –  don’t stop! Congratulations! You will get stronger now – everyday, every moment. Glory be to God! Glory be to God!

Now we come to a very serious section of this service while I was praying in preparation for this meeting………

Congratulations there! Congratulations! The Lord told me that there will be special cases here tonight and there are four groups of them that He told me about. …..You should have helped her so she doesn’t get discouraged. God who has got you moving will keep you moving forever. Thank You Jesus! Come on give the Lord a big round of applause encourage these people! They couldn’t take a step when they came but God raised them up. What you are watching is a miracle. It’s a miracle, the miracle will continue. Thank You Jesus!

Now I told you God said there will be some special cases. I’m going to call all of them together so you will not know which is which so that you won’t embarrass them.

Now the Lord said there is someone here tonight and you had sex with a dead woman and the Lord wants to set you free from the curse that you brought upon yourself as a result of this action. That is, of course, if you come forward for prayers tonight. Don’t come yet, wait till I have called the others so they won’t know which one is your own.

And He said there is a second group of people. He said there is someone here tonight who partook of the body of a baby that died. Now since you ate that child you yourself know that something was happening within you that was not there before. God in his infinite mercy wants to set you free tonight. So if you come He will set you free. Don’t come yet until I call all the four. So they won’t know who is who.

And the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said you used a scorpion to make a charm against your enemy and the Lord asked me to tell you that the problem is the charm is turning it’s head now and is coming back to attack you. But if you come tonight, God said He will neutralise the effect of that charm and you will be free.

And then He said there is someone here, you made a charm against your competitor in business so that they won’t sell. He asked me to tell you an end is about to come to your own business. Now all this happened before you became a Christian and now that you have surrendered your life to Jesus, He has forgiven you and He wants to put an end to the problem you had created for yourself.

So if you are in one of these four groups I’m going to count up to 10. If you don’t get here before I count ten I will know you don’t want to come and I will just continue. I’ve done what God asked me to do. And don’t come and meet me in the office and say “Ah I couldn’t come then, I’m coming out now.” He didn’t ask me to pray for you in the office He asked me to pray for you here. So I’m counting now 1……2……3…..4…..5…..6…..7 …Remember, I’m not the one calling you. I wasn’t there when all this thing happened. It’s God who saw everything and He wants to be merciful, that’s why He asked you to come. If you refuse this offer, then don’t blame Him. 7 now…..There is power mighty in the Blood………………….8 now. There is healingmighty in the Blood…………………..9 now this is the final call. There is power mighty in the Blood. 

And I know to some of us, these kind of people should not even be prayed for…. but we are all what we are by the grace of God. He may not mention your case tonight maybe you have even done worse things but He has called these ones out and I want you to please stretch your hands towards them and plead the Blood of the Lamb and ask the Almighty God to forgive and remove every curse upon these people. It is a terrible thing definitely to have sex with the dead. It’s a terrible thing to eat the flesh of any human being. It’s not right to make charms against your competitor bur God is full of mercy. Ask God to be merciful and forgive and forget and neutralise every curse upon these people. Pray for them brethren! Pray for them for one more minute that the Almighty who has seen it fit to call them forward today, will wipe away every curse upon them. Forgive and forget Lord! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) 

And so Father we want to bless Your name. In this crowd, only You can pick out these people because of Your special love. Accept our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen!) Every curse upon any of these Your children, I hereby decree that it will become a blessing. (Amen!) The grace never again to do evil, give to them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Even as they served the devil let them now begin to serve You! (Amen!) Thank You my Father! Glory be to Your name! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)Praise the Lord! God bless you, you can go back to your seats. You are free now in Jesus name. Let give the Lord a big round of applause! That’s quite a miracle on it own.

And the next group of people that God wants me to pray for, they don’t have to come forward, they will just stand where they are because I know they will be quite many. This is a group of people no matter how hard they try they have never had financial breakthrough. They have never had financial breakthrough and the Lord wants to tackle that tonight. So if that is your own problem stand where you are, I want to pray for you now. No matter how hard you had tried, it had not produced results. I have good news for you. God singled you out tonight because things are about to change now. I want you to promise God that if He gives you the breakthrough, you will use it to serve Him. Is that alright? I didn’t hear your “Yes” now! (Yes!)

Father in the mighty name of Jesus! I commit these Your children into Your hands, Whatever it is that has been causing them to fail, whatever has been stopping their breakthrough, destroy tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) Destroy it today in Jesus name! (Amen!) As they go from here, everything they touch now, let it prosper in Jesus name! (Amen!) Every door that the enemy has shut against them, Father break it open in Jesus name! (Amen!) Everyone of them Lord, before the end of this month, let them have a major testimony! (Amen!) Father let them have a major breakthrough! (Amen!) And when You’ve done it for them, don’t let them forget You! (Amen!) In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) Good! Let those people shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Then He asked me to pray specially tonight for every minister of God. So if you are a minister of the gospel wherever you may be, just stand. You don’t need to come forward. The prayer I’m about to pray is a strange prayer. So you have to think twice before you ask me to pray it. Daddy asked me to pray that God will set you on fire. (Amen!) when that fire comes, you will become a bit restless. So you will compelled be to work. So if you are not ready for hard work sit down now but by the time we say the final “Amen” the fire will begin to burn. Are you ready? You want me to go ahead and pray? Well, Ok, raise your hands. You asked for it. In the mighty name of Jesus! (Amen!) Your word says You have made your ministers flames of fire. These Your ministers that I’m presenting before You today at Your prompting, they are saying that they are tired of being lukewarm. They want to be able to wave their hands and the blind will see. They want to be able to breath on the sick and the sick will be healed. They want the breathe coming out of them to cease to be carbon dioxide and become life. Father set them on fire in Jesus name! (Amen!) Everyone of them, the kind of fire that is burning in my bones let it begin to burn in their own bones also. Father set them on fire! Set them on fire! (Amen!) So that all over the nations where these Your children will go, there will be Holy Ghost Services! (Amen!) There will be power services! (Amen!) Right now Father, set them on fire! (Amen!) Thank You Father. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody give the Lord a big round of applause. (Amen!) Now don’t worry we are already rounding up.

Somebody said “No.” You don’t want us to go? While the programme started-even before the programme started – God told me how many people will be healed tonight. He promised me tonight that there will be more than 100,000 people healed but now we cannot ask all of you people to come forward, all of you who had been healed because there is no place to put you here. I need that space. I don’t want anything between the poles and here please. Thank You. So when Daddy says more than 100,000 I have no doubt about that – it’s already settled. Glory be to God!

Those of you whose cases were specifically mentioned and you checked and you find that you are already whole, let those people come now, “What shall I say unto the Lord…….. Now look at what the Lord has done!  They are there in the corner there, all the way and many more are still coming!  Now if these are just the only people healed tonight definitely God has been good, the Lord has been good. I’m going to ask…. please the Pastors, could you just mingle among them and just get us 3 or 4 good ones. I mean Pastors just listen to them and select for us just about half a dozen. You see the Bible says they overcame the devil by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.

For example they gave me some names here. Is Gabriel Ogunmade anywhere here? He’s here! Where is he? If he’s here – You are the one who was urinating before and now the urination has stopped? Now please let one of the ushers bring him to where he can give his testimony. Take him to the other side where there is microphone.

Pastors I said mix among these people. You are not tired, I’m sure! I’m sure those who are looking at me are still Pastors. Pick some of the big ones for us. We just want to hear one or two. Yes sir: The testifier has just said he has been healed from his kidney and the eye. He is the man who has been urinating frequently but now God has given him a brand new bladder. Just get us some very big ones among the special cases mentioned.

Praise the Lord! My name is Sister Florence Obot since I woke up one morning in March and I started feeling fire moving on my back-bone so since then I will be feeling that fire moving all over me especially on my back-bone but today as I woke up this morning I said I will go to Redemption Camp today as soon as I set my feet on the camp ground I will receive my healings. As the ministration was going on and our Father in the Lord said there is somebody here there is fire moving on your back I shout “Alleluia” and I praise God that I have received my healing and immediately the pains disappeared.

Praise the Lord! Before I sweat on my palm and my foot but I thank God when the Pastor said there are people here that sweat on their palm and their foot and I thank God that am of them I don’t sweat on my palm and foot anymore. Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord! Alleluia! Before this ministration started tonight this child has been having epilepsy for years. So the moment our Daddy call, the thing wanted to manifest. I said, in the power in his word you will not! stop! Normally if we don’t give him drugs he will not sleep throughout the night but since last night the thing did not manifest. That means God has healed this boy forever in Jesus name! (Amen!)

I want those cases that were specifically mentioned. Can’t you remember some of them? Bring them forward!

Praise the Lord! Pastor mentioned the person that has been having flow of blood without the time being your menstruation. I’ve been having it for the past 5 years. But it has just stopped now I just went to check it and it has stopped.

Quickly give us five more…..

Praise the Lord! Now it’s going to 3 years now. One day I slept in the night, in the dream then I was stabbed in my heart – 3 times. Since that time I begin having pain in my heart. Sometimes I will go and meet doctor, doctor will write medicine for me. I will buy. I will drink. So I said: God as I want to come to camp, Father, I want this pain in my heart to go and this night the man of God mentioned my case. He says there is one woman she slept in the night and she was stabbed in the chest and now she received healing I said I will come out and say what God did in my life. Praise the Lord!

Four more!

Praise the Lord! This my child cannot walk before but I thank God he has started walking now.

Praise the Lord! For sometime I have been having breathing problem and they’ve been suspecting asthma or whatever they call it. So as our Daddy in the Lord was ministering he said that there is somebody here, the Lord has given you a new lung. In fact since morning I’ve been having freedom in breathing. I’ve not noticed any problem in my life anymore.

Praise the Lord! That is the woman that is pregnant. That pregnancy stopped moving and God has touched her tonight and the baby has started bouncing back in her womb. Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord my name is Iyala Eretrepoma (Mrs) I came all the way from Port-Harcourt. I have skin problem for the last two years. Every time I take two Banocide and two Pruritine, I take it six hourly. But since I came from Port-Harcourt to Camp I’ve not even remembered my drugs inside my bag! Then secondly every night my stomach used to swell and my waist will be paining me. I used to tell my husband to rub my back – he’s even here with me sitting at the guest side. He’ll be telling me – it’s gas! But as Daddy mentioned my case my tummy just did purrpr……! Alleluia!

Praise the Lord! My name is Omolara Ojike That’s another woman who is pregnant and the baby is no more kicking. The baby is kicking now! The pregnancy is restored. Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord I am a minister of God. Who says a minister of God cannot get his miracle? Since 1994 I had this bad cough. It has been tormenting me. I had prayed and prayed and I’ve fasted, Nothing has happened! But when our Father in the Lord was ministering tonight he said there are some people here that they have cough, God has taken care of them. Believe me sincerely something like a needle came to prick my lungs and I felt that the cough is already gone. Praise the Lord!

Ok two more.

Praise the Lord I’m a Redeemer and my husband is even a deacon in my church. My Pastor is here with me. This my son is about eight years. He has been seeing. He has been doing vacation… He went to school about 3 weeks ago now and he came back from school and said he cannot see. I say why. He said he cannot see anything! I rushed him to National Eye Centre, NEC. They did not see anything wrong with his eye…… that which church am I attending? I say Redeemed. They said I should take him to my Pastor so that he can lay hands on him. I rushed him to 44 hospital. The Medical Director confirmed that there is nothing wrong with the boy, that maybe his eyes are not functioning well since I gave birth to him. I said no – he’s seeing. So I rushed him to my Pastor. He said  I should not worry. And today now immediately GO was ministering he mentioned his case and I wake him up – the boy can see now. Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord! She has been healed from cancer of the breast. Praise the Lord with her! Thank you very much.

Last one.

Praise the Lord! The problem I always have is that in the afternoon my stomach will be normal then in the evening it will be as if….. and in the night I will be stooling throughout. And in the morning it will be back to normal until about 7 0’clock in the night I don’t eat what I like but this evening I took two minerals – to the Glory of God! I’m thoroughly alright now. Praise the Lord! Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Now I know you all have a testimony that is why you came out here, Let me assure you of one – thing your miracle will last forever! (Amen!)

There were one or two funny cases that I would have loved to see, If you remember very well, He talked about somebody who thought that the nose was too big! New heart, a new brain, new eye – is that fellow with the nose? He’s over there? Shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

What I want you to do is this – please in all your churches share these testimonies or in the Holy Ghost Service that will follow. We want to record all these testimonies for the future. Now you stay where you are right now. All other people who had been healed tonight wherever you are I want you to stand, Don’t come forward, just stand because this place is already full. Then you received the healing tonight – stand! All over the place. That’s very good. And I want you to look around and try and see if you can count this number. Now I want to pray for you because since you have testified then the devil can’t take your miracle from you. (Amen!)

Father, I thank You. What a wonderful night! What a mighty God we serve! Accept our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen!) For healing all these people-so many thousands of them for everyone of them, receive our thanks in Jesus name! (Amen!) Now, my Father and my God everyone You have healed tonight let their healing be permanent in Jesus name! (Amen!) The miracle you have given them now, don’t let the devil steal it in Jesus name! (Amen!) Thank You my Father. In Jesus mighty we have prayed! (Amen!)Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) God bless you. Now you may return to your seats. Glory, glory Lord we give you glory Lord……… O Lord I want to sing your praises.

Three more items and we will be on our way. The three very quick ones. The first one. How many of you would like to say “Thank You for what You have done tonight” to the Almighty? So many souls saved, so much so that this place will not contain them. So many healed, the barren who became fruitful and several other miracles that we cannot see with our eyes. So it is time for us to say “Thank You Jesus” We will be seated while the ushers come round and we give our thanksgiving offering to God. Thank Him to the extent that you felt that He has been good tonight. Thank Him. And when we finish that one we will take the two other items very quickly and then we will be on our way. So over to you brethren…..

Alright now if there is anyone that the ushers have left out, please you alone shout Alleluia! We have one or two there. Ushers please locate them one more time if you have been left out by the ushers shout “Alleluia”……… one more time…. old section and somewhere in front here. I will wait for them because the prayer for this offering is a special one.

Two items only left  and we will go now. One, there are some people who still feel “Oh God how I wish, I can go to GO’s office so he can pray for me”. Automatically you know that the office is not big enough to take all of us. But since your faith is in that direction I want to pray for you now. So such people should please stand so I can pray for you now. Now you have one minute to tell God what you would have told me if you came into my office. So go ahead talk to God now and say, “This is what I would have told the GO in the office. Help me, Lord. As he prays now let this problem be solved.” So talk to God for one minute…….

TALK TO GOD……

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

GREAT FRUITS

5th of September, 2003

Thank You! Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Ah! Thank You Father! David started as an ordinary shepherd boy. But he became great and you are going to become great Amen! (Amen!) David started as an ordinary shepherd boy and he brought forth great fruits and you are going to bring forth great fruits. Amen! (Amen!) Two of such fruits that David brought forth are: Solomon who became the richest man that ever lived….. and out of your loins will come the richest children the world has ever seen Amen! (Amen!) Secondly, he brought forth the greatest of all – Jesus Christ, the son of David. Out of you will come children that will rankamong the greatest of the world Amen! (Amen!)

But why did God pin-point David for this honour? Omowale had already told us inPsalm 34:1 David said I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth. When David praised God people thought he was crazy. I want you to praise God for five minutes – so much that God will look down and say, “You, you will be great! You’ll bring forth great fruit. You, you will be special!” Go ahead and praise the Almighty God. Praise Him whichever way you like. Sing before Him! Dance before Him! Clap before Him! Do whatever you like before the Almighty God. Praise Him until He will notice you! Magnify His Holy name! Worship Him…….. Thank You Lord! Alleluia Jesus! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name! Thank You Father! Amen! Thank You Lord!

The Lord says…. listen to me brethren.. Amen! (Amen!) Amen! Amen! Amen! This is very important so you have to listen. I know you have gone in spirit but you have to hear this Amen! The Lord says there will be no disappointments here tonight Amen! (Amen!) No disappointments here tonight! No disappointments here tonight! Thank You Father! So I want you to lift your voice to God and say, “Father, the grace to pray, give me tonight”. Go ahead talk to the Almighty………. Since there will be no disappointments here tonight, since all prayers will be answered here tonight, my Lord and my Saviour – the grace to pray, the grace to open my mouth and cry out to You, the grace to pour out my heart to You today, give it to me Lord! Oh give it to me Lord! The grace to pray, the grace to call on You, to pour out my heart to You, to tell you all my needs, God give to me tonight! Give it to me tonight! The grace to pray! The grace to reach heaven, to pour out my heart to You! Blessed, Blessed be the name of the Lord! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! Amen! (Amen!)

Daddy says, “And the deaf shall hear.” Amen! (Amen!) And you know what that means? – the Bible says faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. So you are going to pray now – say, “Father open my ears, let me hear from You tonight and let the fire of faith begin to burn in my heart”. Go ahead cry to the Almighty God! Open my ears tonight Lord! Let me hear from You! Let the fire of faith begins to burn fiercely in my heart tonight. Open my ears Oh Lord! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus mighty name we pray! (Amen!)

And the Lord said to Peter, Peter you fished all night and you caught nothing but the next throw of the net will bring in abundance. So the Lord is saying, “My daughter you spent several nights with your husband and no result but the next sleep with him will bring forth great fruit.” (Amen!)  The Lord is saying, “Oh business man you have toiled, you have toiled and no result but the next contract will bring in abundance!” (Amen!)  The Lord is saying “Oh Pastors! Oh Pastors the next programme shall bring in the breakthrough!” (Amen!) Alleluia! Father!

Let’s just go on our knees before Him! Ah Thank You Jesus! Let’s just worship Him! Just worship Him! He’s worthy, He’s worthy to be praised! He’s worthy to be praised! Thank You Jesus! Alleluia Father! Alleluia Father! You are worthy to be praised…………….Oh Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus!  Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Oh my Lord! In the midst of your enemies you will still be singing for joy! (Amen!)

Father we Bless Your name! You are worthy to be praised! You are worthy to be adored! There is no one like You! You are the King of Kings, You are the Lord of Lords! The I am that I am! You are the Ancient of Days! Glory be to Your Holy name! Glory be to Your Holy name! Glory be to Your Holy name! Thank You for last Convention! Thank You for the miracles, for the signs and wonders! 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! Glory be to Your Holy name Lord! Accept our worship in Jesus name!  Thank You because there will be no disappointments here tonight! Thank You because the deaf shall hear! Thank You because miracles will happen! Thank You because there will be shouts of joy! Take all Glory Daddy and give us all the blessings! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) If you are not going to be disappointed hear tonight let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

This is the beginning of our own church year so I want you to shake hands with about seven people and say “Happy New Year, God bless you! Happy new year God bless you!” I want to give God the glory for the various choirs that ministered tonight, They did excellently well. But I am sure you will agree with me the greatest of them tonight is the Mega Zone. We will hear you again. I want to thank God for Bishop Omowale Wilson not just because of the message he brought but because he remains in touch with the Holy Spirit. I only saw him briefly at our prayer meeting. We didn’t even have time to greet because that place is not for greetings. So I didn’t tell him anything at all and yet he has preached the introduction sermon to the next month’s Holy Ghost Service!

Let me explain, I was in my hiding place, praying for the Holy Ghost Service and I heard a sound and I said, Lord what sound is this?  And he said it is the sound of abundance. And He says in October call your people together, share with them about the sound of abundance. I have not shared it with anyone. The only person who could have heard is not in. That’s my wife because she is my prayer partner so nobody has heard from me of what I have just told you. And then he came up here and just kicked off straight away and began to preach the introduction of my sermon next month! I thank God for your life my son! Remain in touch with the Holy Spirit and when the abundance comes you can be sure you get your own share! And I say welcome to my daughter, your wife. Welcome to the elders and all those who came with you. God bless you all.

Don’t mind me tonight – I’m just trying to get myself back to normal. I was with some of my children recently and I greeted normally; how we normally greet: “How are you?” and they answered the normal way: “How are you”. I didn’t hear you? “I’m great”. Suddenly I had an urge to ask a question and I said, “How are you?” and he said “I am great”. And the question came immediately, “How great?’ and it was as if he’d been waiting for the question. The answer came: “Very great!” So when I’m getting ready, trying to come back to Redemption Camp from the heavenlies … “How are you?” I’m great” How great? “Very great!” I didn’t hear you?.

Let me give you a little bit of the sermon that may come sometime… I don’t know whether God will allow it to come soon. Don’t worry we shall come to this one later I’m just trying to collect myself…. You know when you speak at least seven people hear you. God hears you, the angels will hear, believe it or not the devil will hear, demons will hear, mountains will hear – let me stop there. God said: As I have heard in my ears so shall I do unto you. (Amen!) So “How are you?” (I am great!) “How great?” (Very great!)

The Bible says the angel came to Daniel and said, “We heard your words and I have come because of your words.” When angels hear from you, angels are your ministering spirits. When they hear from you that you are great they will come to see to it that you become great. So, ”How are you?”  (I’m great!) ” How great? ”  (Very great!)

The Bible says……. Thank You Father! ….Resist the Devil and he will flee from you and there is only one way to resist the devil –  it is by letting him hear you. If you tell him that you are finished he will move in, but if you tell him how great you are he will run from you. So, “How are you?” (I am great!) “How great?”  (Very great!) Ah alright I think I can begin now. Glory be to God! Glory be to God!

Psalm 128:1-6 Blessed is everyone that feareth thy Lord, that walketh in His way….. Thank You Father! The Lord says since He’s listening and it is in the power of the Father to decide the fate of His children by what the father says, He says He wants to hear from me concerning you. That’s good. That’s good, that’s very good! Everyone of you here today and the families you represent, you shall be world champions! (Amen!) And you shall be undefeated world champions! (Amen!) And you shall be productive champions! (Amen!) And you shall be exceedingly great champions! (Amen!) So shall it be! (Amen) I said so shall it be! (Amen!) I didn’t hear your “Amen” (Amen!) Alright now! Thank You Daddy! Thank You Lord!

Psalm 128 I’m now in verse 2……. for thou shall eat the labour of thy hands, happy shalt thou be and it shall be well with thee. (Amen!) Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thy house, thy children like olive vines around thy table. Behold that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord, the Lord shall bless thee out of Zion and thou shalt see the good of Nigeria all the days of your life! (Amen!) Yea thou shalt see thy children’s children and peace upon the Redeemed Christian Church of God. (Amen!) Your “Amen” tonight must be really strong (Amen!).

Tonight we want to talk about “great fruits” and what do we mean by “fruits”?Fruit could be babies, like Psalm 127:3 it talks about the fruit of the womb it said…. Psalm 127:3 it said, Lo children are an heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is its reward. And Deut. 28:4 says, Blessed shall be the fruit of your body. So fruit could mean babies. And fruit can be harvest from the ground, fruit of your ground, fruit of your cattle, fruit of your sheep. According to the same Deut 28:4 fruit can be the outcome of your daily work. Isaiah 3:10 it says, Say ye to the righteous that he shall be well with him, for he shall eat the fruit of his doingsPsalm 128:2 says, For thou shalt eat the labour of thy hands.Fruit can be the result of evangelism, the souls that are won into the kingdom because in John 15:16 the Lord said: You have not chosen me but I have chosen you and have ordained you that you may go and bring forth fruit. So when we talk about great fruits therefore we can be talking about great children.That’s why all of you who are here, trusting God for the fruit of the womb, you will not bring forth ordinary children, you will bring forth great children (Amen!)

For example the Bible says concerning John the Baptist in Matt 11:11 it says of all the men that had been born of a woman there had not a risen a greater than John the Baptist. Well I have good news for you, your own children will be greater than John the Baptist! (Amen!) And great fruit can also be the result of sowing on good soil. Like in the parable of the sower in Matt 13:3-8 it talks about a sower that went to sow. Some fell by the wayside, some fell on stony ground, some fell among thorns and some fell on a good soil. The ones that fell on the good soil brought forth fruits. From today you will be sowing on good soil. (Amen!) And you will be reaping great fruits. (Amen!)

When we talk about great fruits therefore we could also be talking about a little effort bringing in great results. The elders have a saying, it is very difficult to translate into English, it said how you labour does not necessarily determine how you will become rich. In other words it is not how hard you labour it is how correctly you labour. One single sermon can bring in several converts. Those of us who were here during the Convention, you saw what happened on the Holy Ghost Night. One single sermon and the Pastor made the Altar call and there was not enough room in all this place to take the converts – great fruits!

Now we are going to spend some time tonight, if the Lord will allow us, to discuss these great fruits one by one. We will want to talk about the fruit of the womb. We will want to talk about the fruit that is the result of your labour. If God will allow, we want to talk about the fruit that is the result of evangelism. But the way things are going only God knows how far He will allow us to go preaching. . All we know – Thank You Father! All we know is that you will bear great fruit! (Amen!)

You see the Lord just said, He said: And the dry land shall become wet! (Amen!) That’s confirming what the Bishop had already said – seed will not grow on dry land so I believe God is saying to you that every dry womb shall become fertile. (Amen!) But it is more than that. The elders have a saying when they want to say things are hard financially – they will say, the ground is dry, it’s not for the lack of rain – which means when I say the ground is dry, I’m not talking about the natural rain, I’m talking of financial rain. When God says, “And the ground shall be wet.” I am confident that He’s saying that every dry bank account shall become liquid. (Amen!) I believe that every dry project shall blossom again! (Amen!) And for the student I believe that every dry brain shall begin to function well. (Amen!)

Let’s looks at the great fruit of the womb. I have found something that is very interesting – that the majority of the great men of the Bible, those who seem to be very, very special, they came out of barren wombs. Isaac, Samuel, John the Baptist, is there anyone here who will not want to have a son like Isaac? Or Samuel or John the Baptist? So let’s just look at those three as examples.

Isaac: his name means ‘laughter, child of joy.’ There is somebody here tonight, listening to me, the baby that God is going to give you – for the rest of your life he will not cause you one single day of sorrow. (Amen!) What kind of child is Isaac?An obedient child. The Father said, “My son we are going on a journey”. “Yes Daddy.” And he followed  – no question. “Daddy said, let’s go, we go.” I have good news for somebody, Your next baby will be absolutely obedient. Gen 22:9 said when Abraham was about to offer Isaac for a sacrifice he bound him and laid him on the altar. There was an old man, about a hundred and twenty years old binding a boy of about twenty. If the boy did not submit, there is no way the father could have done it. If the boy decided to run, the father can’t catch up with him. If the boy decided to struggle, a twenty year old boy with just one little push and the father will fall down because the father is about hundred and twenty. But he said, “My son I want to bind you.” “Yes, Daddy. “I want to lay you on this altar. You are the one I’m going to use for the sacrifice! ” “Yes Daddy.” The next child you are going to get will never give you a single problem. (Amen!)

What kind of child is Isaac? He’s a child of multiplication. In Gen 22:16-17Thank You Father! Oh Lord! Daddy says there shall soon be a flood of joy (Amen!) flood of joy that’s coming my way, no doubt about that, you know what that could mean? As a result of our gathering tonight, there’ll be many multiple children born into this world. (Amen!) Many of them will not come singly – they will be twos, they will be threes. (Amen!) And for the business man you better get ready for more contracts than you can handle yourself! (Amen!) And may I tell the Pastors, get ready for more converts than your building can hold. (Amen!) Thank You Jesus!

Eh Eh sometimes ago, years ago, one of my daughters came to me. That time I was a lecturer at the University of Lagos – “Nobody seems to be saying ‘How now?’” “So we prayed for future partner and within on month six people came. So we have to pray a new kind of prayer. Why am I telling you that story? Because there is someone here among you sisters before we return in October you too will be praying that new kind of prayer. (Amen!)

So where were we? Gen 22:16-17 the Lord to Abraham: In blessing I will bless you but multiplying I will multiply your seed. Abraham you’ll be blessed but Isaac will be multiplied. Listen to me carefully – this is not an ordinary night. All of you here tonight you will be blessed. (Amen!) But your children shall be multiplied. (Amen!) What kind of child is Isaac? He’s a child who carried on the family blessing. He’s a child who became very great. There are all kinds of children. There are children the father may be great, they will reduce the greatness of the father. Some of us were talking about things that had happened in the past. We remember years ago in a particular village, when you can count the number of storey buildings and the children of those people who built the storey buildings brought it down and reduced it  to just ground floor bungalows. Your children won’t be like that! (Amen!)  Your children will keep on going higher. (Amen!) No matter how great God will make me, you are all going to be greater than I. (Amen!) You better say “Amen” to that one. Say it loud and clear (Amen!)

What about Samuel? His name means “asked of God” or “answer to prayer” or “a gift of God”. You can read that in 1 Sam:20:27 There are children and there are children. There are children that you have and you almost say to God, why should I have this one in my family? But there are children people will know that this is a special favour of God to you. Every child that will be conceived as a result of tonight they will be straight from the throne of God. (Amen!)

What kind of child was Samuel? He was a powerful child1 Sam 3:19 The Bible says God will not even allow his word to fall to the ground. In other words when he speaks, before the saliva on his mouth will touch the ground everything he said will come to pass. Listen to me carefully, Many of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, out of your womb shall come great prophets. (Amen!) Alleluia! The Lord asked me to ask someone here, He said how do you want your twins? Two girls? A boy and a girl? Or Two boys? You better tell Him now! Say it loud and clear so that He can hear you. Oh Lord thank You Father! Samuel, he was a king maker. He was the one who enthroned Saul. He was the one who enthroned David, He was a king maker – He was someone so powerful that when he comes into a town the elders will shake. Until he has spoken they don’t know why he’s coming. None of you will have a useless child. (Amen!) You will have children who will be controlling presidents. (Amen!)

What about John the Baptist? Luke 1:11-14 The Bible calls him a child of joy and gladness. That’s the kind of children God will give to you. (Amen!) In verse 15 of Luke 1 the Bible call him “great”, If God says somebody is great, that fellow is great. Your children will be great. (Amen!) What kind of child was John the Baptist? From the mother’s womb he was a Holy Ghost carrier. He came as an evangelist, revivalist, powerful –  the Bible called him the prophet of the highest. The Bible says he was strong in the Holy Spirit. You will find that, read the whole of Luke 1 you will find it there. Because that’s the kind of child that you are going to have. (Amen!) Powerful Holy Ghost carrier! Prophet of the highest! Strong in the Holy Ghost. Jesus said concerning John the Baptist, He said there is nobody as great as he in his generation. You know in every generation somebody is born and everybody will say this is the greatest in this generation.

I was talking sometimes somewhere, preaching at a particular place and I said something that I’m sure you agree with me – its true. I find that whenever they are comparing cars they will say, oh Mercedes Benz is the strongest. They will say BMW is the fastest; they will say Lexus is the most comfortable. You know they never talk about Rolls Royce. Why? Because Rolls Royce is in a class of its own. You don’t compare sleep and death! The kind of children you will produce will be Rolls Royce. (Amen!) I mean they will just stand on their own and when people are comparing this they will say don’t talk about him you know he’s superior. You know God told me, I think I’ve shared it with you a little, He said out of the Redeemed Christian church of God, I will raise up a people that will cause the world to have a new definition of greatness. (Amen!) In other words, the smallest of you will be so great that the world will say, if this is what they call small, then we have to redefine great! (Amen!) You haven’t seen anything yet! I say, we haven’t seen anything yet!

Years ago when we just moved to that segment of this Auditorium which was very big then and I said the old Auditorium beside the expressway will soon become the  Auditorium for the children, Ah Everybody said, Ah – ah, say something else. How can that be?” During this last convention it has become clear that the old Auditorium is becoming too small for the children. You haven’t see anything yet. Take a look at what we now call this big Auditorium. Ah how big? You believe God and I tell you that very soon the children will tell you go and build your own because we need this one. (Amen!) Because multiple children are coming. Do I hear your “Amen” to that one? (Amen!)

… Thank You Daddy! Daddy says trespassers shall be chased out. (Amen!) I need to explain that one. Number one it means all those strange women causing troubles in your homes shall be chased out. (Amen!) It also means all those spiritual husbands, spiritual wives shall be chased out! (Amen!) It also means that all those illegal consumers consuming your money shall be chased out. (Amen!) It also means that every sickness, every disease in your body shall be chased out! (Amen!)

I want you to stand on your feet – we’ll continue as God allows us to – I want you to cry to the Almighty God. And say, “Father my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Every trespasser – sickness, disease, doubt, unbelief, demons, curses, evil covenant – I command now – get out! ” Open your mouth and cry out to the Almighty God.

Every trespasser, Oh Lord God Almighty, every trespasser in this temple of the Holy Spirit every sickness, every diseases, every aches, every pain, every doubt, every unbelief, every demonic influence, every evil covenant I decree right now get out! Get out in the mighty name of Jesus. Every trespasser get out! Every devourer  in my life get out! Get out! The Lord has spoken. He said trespassers shall be chased out. I command you in the mighty name of Jesus, every trespasser  I am chasing you out now! In the name of Jesus I am commanding you to go! Sickness go! Disease go! Demons go! Go now in the name of Jesus! Move out! Trespassers get out! Hypertension go! Diabetes go! Cancer go! Fibroid go! Kidney go! Poverty go! Trespasser go! In the mighty name of Jesus go now! Get out! Thank You my Father! Glory be to God! Thank You Lord! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Every sickness shall leave your body in Jesus name! (Amen!) Every demon shall leave you alone in Jesus name! (Amen!) Every devourer shall leave your body in Jesus name! (Amen!) Every evil link with spiritual husband, spiritual wife, spiritual child shall go in Jesus name! (Amen!) Every intruder in your home shall go in Jesus name! (Amen!) Every agent of the devil in your place of work shall go, in Jesus name! (Amen!) So shall it be! (Amen!) Ah so shall it be! (Amen!) So shall it be! (Amen!) In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. (Amen!) Please go ahead give the Lord a big round of applause. Thank You Lord! Glory be to God! God bless you, you may be seated!

Alleluia! The Lord said there is a woman who came here tonight looking as someone who is eight month pregnant without any pregnancy at all. The Lord asked me to ask you to check your belly, that the load that the enemy has put there has been removed! (Amen!)

So we have great children like Isaac, like Samuel, like the John the Baptist.

The Lord said there is a woman here, you will remember that in your dream it’s always this child following you anywhere you go, The Lord said you may not know it, that is the child that is preventing you from having your baby. He asked me to tell you, you will never see that child again! (Amen!)

Eh! Eh! So we have these special children but we need to note that these special children are from special parents. Abraham, the father of Isaac, was someone who was chosen by God for blessing. In Gen 12:1-3 God said to him: Abraham I will bless you. I will make your name great. I will make you great. You will be a blessing. Those who bless you I will bless, those who curse you I will curse and through you shall all the nations of the earth be blessed. When God chose Abraham for this blessing, Abraham had never done anything good or bad according to records. God just chose him for blessing. And God is going to chose somebody here tonight for blessing (Amen!) Who is the one? Let me hear your “Amen” loud and clear! (Amen!)

But then you will notice something about Abraham from that moment on. Number one he was an altar-builder. You heard it earlier this evening. You want the rain to fall, repair the altar. Go through the Scriptures. Everywhere Abraham went he built an altar to the Lord. He was a consistent worshiper He just wanted to worship God, You know, when I get to a gathering, by the time I have been there for thirty minutes I can tell you – I am not talking about hearing from God – I can tell by observation those who are going to be great. You know when people are praising God you can see the reaction of the people. Some people are enjoying it – they just sit down as ladies and gentlemen – you know even though they don’t bear the title, but they may sit down as most senior Apostle, watching little children praising God. At times you begin to wonder maybe they are even the gods that we are praising. Whereas you see others when they see that these people are praising my Daddy very well. Even though I’m not in the choir – let me join. They will stand up and begin to dance and you see people around them looking at them why are you doing that? Let them keep on looking at you; let them remain seated while you are standing. When God is lifting you higher they will still be looking! Oh but you may say, most of the time we don’t see you standing too sir. I’m conserving my energy because I know I’m going to be standing while you are sitting and if you see me where I am sitting my leg is dancing, my body is moving! Oh I’m going on with everything that is going because I’m going to reach the top! How many of you will reach the top! From now on whenever God is being worshipped remember they are worshipping the only One who can promote you. If God does not promote you, nobody can. Whenever they are worshiping God, forget who you are – join the worship! When they ask you to shout “Alleluia” let your own be the loudest! Let me hear somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Ah that’s great! That’s the way it should be! Thank you.

So you see Abraham was an altar-builder. He loves to build altars because he wants somewhere to worship.  Eh-eh! some of you may not want to hear this but it’s true.Abraham was a tither, Father Abraham, He was a tithe payer. Read it Gen. 14:18-20 Oh I won’t spend much time on that. We will come to it maybe some other time. Abraham was a hospitable person that is how unknowingly he entertained God. Abraham was a reliable friend of God. You can read all these inGen. 18 He was a great intercessor. He knew how to pray and Abraham was a sacrificial giver. You heard it again earlier tonight If you want the rain to fall, give God a sacrifice, I will talk more about that later on. What about Hannah mother of Samuel?

Ah Thank You Father! You know, so many things, are happening it’s just that if I’m announcing everything we won’t be able to do any preaching but

God says there is someone here, He says your eyes are dimming periodically and then it will brighten and then it will grow dim and then it will brighten. He asked me to tell you that what the enemy is using to cover your eyes he has removed. (Amen!) Thank You Father!

This is a big one too. The Lord said the dominion of the evil one over your partner is over! (Amen!) Eh! Eh! that is good news for somebody.

What about Hannah the mother of SamuelShe was a prayer warrior – 1 Sam 1:9-10 That woman knew how to pray. She knew how to hold on to God. Not only that, she was a covenant partner of God. She said, “God, give me that boy and I will give it back to you! ” And not only she made covenant with God. She was a covenant keeper. You can still find this story in 1 Sam 1 That’s why I thank God for all my covenant partners I can guarantee you God will keep His own side of the covenant. And if you are not keeping your side you better begin to keep it now because once you hold a covenant with God He will hold you to it. Hannah was a grateful woman. She knew how to say thank you Lord. If you read 1 Sam 2:1-2you will see her thanking God. What about Zechariah and Elizabeth, parents of the John the Baptist?

You see I have taken Abraham, the father of Isaac, I have taken Hannah, the mother of Samuel. Now let me take husband and wife. Now Zechariah and Elizabeth, the parents of John the Baptist. What kind of people were they?Pure, undefiled, holy, dedicated servants of God, relentless prayer warriors.You can read all that from Luke 1:5-13. Oh, Thank You Jesus!

….The Lord said there is someone here tonight inside your mouth are several sores and the Lord asked me to ask you to check, They have all disappeared! (Amen!)

So what we notice, therefore, is that great fruits come from great people And then when we come down to things of the land because I want to touch that one very quickly before God chases me out of here, every farmer knows that the kind of harvest that you will get will be determined by several things.

Number one – the type of soil. I mean if you take maize now and you spread it over the lagoon, you go back three months later and say you want to harvest corn you, will be wasting your time. Another thing that will determine the kind of harvest you will get, will be the quantity of seed. In 2 Corinthians 9:6 Its says if you sow sparingly, you will reap sparingly; you sow bountifully you will reap bountifully. Another thing that will determine the kind of fruit you get, is the type of seed that you sow. Gal 6:7 Its says be not be deceived, God is not mocked whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap.

I was telling a story in London some days ago, I said years ago, when the church began to grow and the Holy Ghost Service was getting too big for me alone to lay hands on the people, I got seven elders together and I said listen to me, you will be ministering with me and I gave each of them a tie that I had used in ministering, each tie that I know had been soaked in the anointing and they began to wear the ties to Holy Ghost Service and the miracles began to happen through them. But suddenly I discovered everybody that travelled whenever they are coming back they come and give me ties. Little by little – hundred ties, two hundred ties. I said, “God what is wrong with these people? Can’t they see something else other than ties?” And God spoke to me and said, “What a man sows is what you reap. You sow ties you reap ties.” That’s all I told the people in London. What I’m about to tell you now, I didn’t tell them because you are special. You know as a mathematician……..Because if I sow shoes………….. you’ve got it. And then I waited one month no shoe, second month no shoe, third month – no shoes. Father where are the shoes? And He said when you sow corn, you will reap it in three months. When you sow yam, you have to wait for six months……….. ah ah ok. So I waited and then the shoes began to come – black shoes, brown, white, yellow shoes, so much that there is hardly anywhere to walk in the house because of the shoes … because He says the quality of your seeds that you sow, if the quality is high, the day the harvest will come will be a little bit longer but when its begins to come  – get ready.

So you can imagine, when at the end of last year God told me to give away my two Jeeps. At first it was difficult. Finally by God’s grace, I obeyed and now I’m waiting! Eh-eh! I’ve not seen anyone yet. No problem because those are high quality seeds. I may need to wait for three years – no problem, but when they begins to come, don’t envy me! Don’t envy me at all – whatever you sow – you shall reap! How many of you want great fruits? Let me hear you shout “Alleluia! ” (Alleluia!) Alright, so let’s round up. I can feel the power of God seriously here.

The Lord said to somebody here, your days of wandering are over (Amen!)

Now what do we do to get rid of barrenness? You see because barrenness is not only lack of fruit of the womb. Barrenness actually means fruitless efforts – that’s the meaning of barrenness. You work and there is no sign that you are working – that’s barrenness. You study – you keep failing the exams, that’s barrenness. You have been doing the work with all your heart, with all your energy! No promotion. That is barrenness. You preach, you witness, you do house visitation and yet the church is not growing – that’s barrenness! What do we do to remove barrenness? Number one the principal cause of barrenness is curses. Mark 11:12-14 Jesus saw a fig tree, full of leaves and said, “Ah there will be food on this.” He got there – no fruits. He pronounced a curse on it. He said, “No man shall eat any fruit from you ever again.” And that fig tree never bore fruits. 2 King 2:19 Jericho was a city that was under a curse and everything there was barren.   So what do we do to prevent barrenness or to put an end to barrenness?

Thank You Father! Number one is that you must do everything to make God change curses to blessings. It means that we have to repent of deception and many of us who are pretenders will pretend that we are serving God whereas we are only serving Him because of what we can get from Him. We pretend that we are paying all our tithes. As if God does not know mathematics, as if He doesn’t know how to divide by ten. We pretend that we are co-operating with God fully whereas we are just doing what is convenient for us. If you want God to reverse every curse that is upon us so that an end can come to barrenness in our lives. Prov 28:13 it said he that concealeth his sins shall not prosper but he that confesses and forsakes them shall obtain mercy. You will obtain mercy tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Let me tell you one thing, those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb. Only one child is needed to open the door. As soon as the door is open, the others will follow. Samuel was the first one to open the door for Hannah, five others followed. Businessmen I’ve told you again and again what God said in Malachi 3:10 is that if you will bring all the tithes into His house He said He will open the windows of heaven.  He said he will pour out a blessing – one, one blessing that’s all you need – one breakthrough! I want to believe God with you, that before the end of this year some of you here will be saying, God this is too much! (Amen!) God this is too much (Amen!) If you believe that say “Amen” loud and clear! (Amen!)

You need to repent, you need to confess and forsake them. Then like Hannah you need to pray and not just ordinary prayer, violent prayer! Matt 11:12 since the days of John the Baptist, the kingdom of God suffereth violence and the violent take it by force. I’m sure I’ve told you before – maybe it’s the London people that heard this one recently. Luke 11:9-10 that’s where the Bible says, ask and you shall be given, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened. For everyone that asketh receiveth, for everyone that seeketh findeth, for everyone that knocketh at the door, to him the door shall be opened. And I said there are three things you could do when you knock at the door when you know the landlord is inside. You knock at  the door. If he didn’t answer, you can say, “Well he didn’t answer so I’m going! ” Or you could say, “I’m staying here! I will keep on knocking until you open, I’m not going until you open. ” Or you can say – “door you are standing between and my blessing I am going to kick you open! ” Ah how can we do that? Won’t God be angry if we say, “God whether you like it or not I must take my miracle?” It means many of us didn’t study the Bible very well. When those four boys brought the fellow who was paralytic and they got there and there was no room because people have jammed the doors and the window, what did they do? They went home? They said, “We have tried, we have tried?” No! They climbed the roof! When they got to the top of the roof ah there is no window there and the roof is there and we are gentlemen, ok let us climb down and go home. It must mean that God didn’t want our friend to be healed. Is that what they did? No! what did they do? Ah! they tore open the roof! Check the Bible, the Bible did not tell us who repaired the roof because as soon as their friend got healed, they just went home dancing rejoicing – nobody said anything the roof. Every door standing between you and your miracle shall be forced open tonight! (Amen!)

I told you a story of my youngest son when he was small. I have a room in my house – my prayer room and everybody in the house knew that when Daddy goes into the prayer room he doesn’t want to be disturbed. I made the room a bit uncomfortable so that I won’t get too comfortable there. It’s supposed to be a place of warfare. So I may be there laying down, naked on my face before God, discussing serious matters with God: Holy Ghost Service, the growth of the church, peace for Nigeria – important things and my youngest son pushes the door open: “Daddy I want biscuit! ” “Ah no, no, no!  Please go, go, go to your mother! Go and ask her for biscuit!” “Daddy I want biscuit!” Does he care about Holy Ghost Service? He didn’t know anything about that! It’s none of his concern about what is going on in Nigeria! He wants biscuit. Somebody is going to tell God tonight – Father whatever you are doing up there – you have to suspend it. Settle my case first. Is anybody going to pray like that here tonight? Let me hear your “Amen” now! (Amen!) Don’t worry that time is coming very soon.

And then like Hannah make God an offer he cannot refuse. What do I mean by that? You can’t bribe God so forget that He’s too big! But you can make him an offer that he cannot refuse. David said in Psalm 51:15 he said open thou my lips and my mouth shall show forth thy praise. David knew that God is really interested in praise. He said, okay remove that thing that is blocking my mouth and then I will praise you.

Suppose three of us go to God and one of us says, “God give me a breakthrough and I will pay my tithes.” Ah God will say, “Is that an offer? You don’t pay your tithe I will curse you” The second one says Lord give me a breakthrough and I promise You, we will share it fifty-fifty. God says, “Well I’m listening”. And then the third one comes and says God I want You to be my Senior Partner. Whatever comes in I will give you 60%. I’ll be satisfied with 40%. Who is the first one to get a breakthrough of the three? I mean it’s clear. I’ve told you a story before of a man who started his business in America with 500 dollars and he said to God, God it is an insult for me to be giving you 10% while I’m retaining 90%. I will give you 90% I will keep the ten. Within 3 years 500 dollars became 50 million! Make God an offer he cannot refuse! He’s a covenant-keeping God.  I know Him. We’ve been walking together now for sometime. I will tell you a story and don’t worry, very soon we’ll be praying.

One of my daughters came to me years ago, she said, “Daddy you must be at my wedding.” I laughed. I said, “You will wait a long time. “And that was when the church was even smaller and I still attended weddings. She was talking to me, I think around May. I said you will wait a long time. “I will wait. ” I said, “Ah, lets look through my dairy.” We looked through. I said, “There is no date left this year.” She said, “ I will wait. ” So we moved down to the following year to see. We checked my year planner and we found that there is only one Saturday that was free for the next year and it was July. And here is a girl talking about marriage in May. “My dear there is only one Saturday free in the next year and it’s in July.” She said, “Glory be to God, that’s the day of my wedding!” “Ah no, you can’t wait that long.” she said, “eh that’s the day of my wedding. ” So I made up my mind, if this lady is so committed then I must honour her. And then the following year came. July came and my mother died. I was in London when my mother died on missionary assignment and because I didn’t write this girl’s marriage on the only Saturday free, my wife saw that Saturday free in my calendar and said, “Ah this is when we will bury mama!” “So they phoned me. I said, No way, no way!” I love my mother. I’m the only son of my mother. I’m the last born of my mother. I’m the apple of the eye of my mother but I have committed myself to this girl. It’s a covenant on this issue. Now what are we going to do? There is no other day! We will bury my mother on Friday. Saturday I will be at this wedding. Make God an offer tonight. Enter into covenant with Him. Reach an agreement that you will not change and I can guarantee you, you will begin to bear great fruits.

Finally you must abide. The Bible says in Psalm 1, if you read from verse 1 to 3 It said the tree that is going to bring forth fruit in its season must be a tree that is planted by the rivers of water, not one that is moving – you plant it today, you uproot it tomorrow. It must stay and some of you who come to the Holy Ghost Service once in a long while and some of you who are Sunday-Sunday Christians, it doesn’t work that way. You have to be planted. You have to be a full-time Christian. Whatever else you are doing must be part-time. Full time Christian, part-time business man. Full-time Christian, part-time teacher, Full time Christian, part-time student. God must come first in everything, everything! In everything! Do I hear you say “Amen” to that? (Amen!)

So if you are here tonight and you haven’t given your life to Jesus, you don’t know what you are missing.  God has been speaking to me again and again. I’m so surprised that it came so strongly through Bishop this evening when he said prepare for the rain! God has been saying it again and again “ Prepare for greatness! ” And He’s saying the same thing to all of you now – “Prepare for greatness!” But you have to be hooked to the Almighty God. Be separately hooked to the Almighty God. So if you want to give your life to Jesus with a solid determination that from now on you will serve Him for the rest of your life, I’m going to count up to ten. Before I say ten you must be in front here. if you want to give your life to Jesus with a strong determination to serve Him for the rest of your life come forward now. Come now 1……..2…….3…….4……5……6…….7 The choice is yours – if you want to continue to live the life of fruitlessness the choice is yours. If you want to be hooked to the only one who can make you fruitful, the choice is yours. 8……..The word of God is clear – we cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound. The word of God says, God forbid. Until you have come to Him and His Blood has washed away your sins, it doesn’t matter how high you cry, how great you shout as long as there is sin in your life – David said if I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear me. So if you want God to hear you, you have to be free from your sin. 9 now, This is the final countdown! If you want to give you life to Jesus you have be here and be here now. You have to hurry up from wherever you are coming from. This is the day of salvation. God is willing to save your soul but you have to come to Him first. He says, Come to me all you that labour and are heavy–laden and I will give you rest. If you don’t come the choice is yours.

Now those of us who are already in front let’s begin to talk to the Lord, “Lord I have come to surrender my life today. I have come for salvation of my soul. Forgive me, O Lord! Have mercy on me! have mercy on me! save my soul! And just make me one of your children. ” Begin to talk to the Almighty God. The rest of us, let’s stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them that the One that saved our soul will save their own souls also. Ask the Almighty God to be merciful unto them. Ask Him to cleanse them in His Blood. Call on the Almighty God for them brethren! Intercede for these people! Intercede for these people! God should be merciful unto them. Ask God to save their soul tonight and write their names in the Book of Life! Pray for them brethren! And those of you who are still coming, come here now because I’m about to pray. I’m about to pray now! Call on Him and say,Lord have mercy on me! Save my soul! Cleanse me in Your Blood! Write my name in the Book of Life! Pray, pray now! Call on Him – the Almighty God.  He’s the Saviour and those of you who are still on the way hurry up now this is the time for your salvation. This is the moment of salvation. Get here before I finish praying because I am about to pray now. We want to pray for the salvation of soul of these people now. Come and call on the Almighty God for your own salvation too! Hurry up now. This is your moment. These is the moment of salvation. This is the hour of salvation. Call on Almighty God. Ask him to be merciful unto you. Say “Be merciful unto me, O Lord! Save my soul! Forgive my sin! Cleanse me in Your blood O Lord! Write my name in the Book of Life! Give me a brand new beginning Lord! I will serve you all the days of my life. I will serve You my Father and my God. Just have mercy on me! Save my soul! Save my soul! Save my soul today! Save my soul today! ”And those of you who are still coming make sure you get here now! Because I am about to pray! I am about to pray now! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

My Father and my God we want to thank You, for Your goodness, for Your mercy. We want to thank Your for these Your children who have come forward. Receive them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Forgive them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Wash them clean in Your blood today in Jesus name! (Amen!) Save their souls and write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus name! (Amen!) From today, whenever they call upon You answer them in Jesus name! (Amen!) All the days of their lives Father let them serve You in Jesus name! (Amen!) Thank You my Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

As we wait for our new brothers and sisters to join us I want you to spend the next two minutes discussing your life with God: where you are now? Where do you want to go? And what you will do if God will do what you want Him to do. This is just between you and God now. Within the next few minutes talk to Him! This is where I am now Lord and I want to reach the very, very top. This is where I want to go Lord and let’s discuss it my Father and my God. If you do this for me I will do this. Let’s settle the matter now. A night like this comes only once in a life time, Lord. This is it! This is the night. Go ahead talk to the Almighty God………Let’s begin to round up our prayers. In Jesus name we pray! It shall be according to our prayers in Jesus name! (Amen!) Praise the Lord.

Bartimaeus cried unto the Lord. The Bible says Jesus stood still. And when Jesus stands still, the heavens stand still, the angels stand still, everything on earth and in the heaven will have to stand still! Somebody now wants to cry to God so that everything can stand still until their own particular problem had been solved. Someone is going to say to God like I said earlier on: “Whatever you are doing in heaven, O Lord, you have to suspend it for this moment – until you have settled my case!” I know there is someone here who is tired of barrenness; someone who is tired of fruitless efforts; someone who  knows that with God all thing are possible. Someone who wants to say, “God tonight is my night! ” Someone who knows that Jesus never asked anybody to come back tomorrow. All those who came to Him – the day they came, that was the day He answered them. People like me who are going to tell the Almighty God, This is the night! Such people will stand now.

And our first prayer is going to be a shout that is going to pull down every wall of Jericho that may want to stand between us and our miracle. So let me hear somebody shout a big Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Thank You Father! Amen!

Now you are going to lift your voice to God and say, “Father, I am your child and I want to talk to You now. Whatever You are doing suspend it and listen to me!” Go ahead, talk to Almighty God! “Father this is not a night for jokes! I am Your child. You are my Dad, whatever You are doing in heaven please suspend it now! Because I want to talk to You. I want to discuss with You. I have certain things I want to discuss with You tonight. Since you are my Father, since You are all in all. There is no time with You. You move from everlasting to everlasting so whatever You are doing now for this moment because we want to talk Daddy I want to discuss with You now. I want to open my heart to You tonight I want to discuss certain crucial issues of my life with You. I want to discuss with You Lord! Thank You my Father! Glory be to God! I want to discuss with you so Father please pay attention to me now. Pay attention to me now! Pay attention to me now Father! Pay attention to me now, my Lord and my Saviour. I want to discuss certain issues of my life with You. Help me Lord! Pay attention! Blessed be Your Holy name Lord! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you lift up your voice to Him and say, Father, I want to serve You! Open thou my lips! Remove every reproach from my life and my mouth shall show forth thy praise! Go ahead talk to Almighty God! I want to serve You! Open thou my lips remove every reproach from my life and my mouth will show forth thy praise! I will praise You. The world will hear, they will hear how great Thou art. You just open my lips, Lord, open my mouth Lord –with signs, with wonders, with miracles, with anointing, with power, open thou my lips Lord remove every reproach from my life! I will show forth thy praise, I will serve You. The world will hear and they will tremble when they see how great Thou art, when they hear from me of Your goodness, of Your mercy, of Your power! Open Thou my lips, O Lord and my lips shall show forth Thy praise! Yes Lord open Thou my lips and remove every reproach physical, mental, spiritual, financial, ministerial and otherwise open thou my lips and my mouth shall show forth Thy praise! Open Thou my lips Lord! Alleluia Father! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you go to Him and say, “Father! “You better open your mouth and say, “Father, I am tired of fruitless efforts. I am tired of barrenness – make me fruitful! ” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God. “I’m tired of fruitless efforts Lord! I’m tired of barrenness in every facet of my life! I am tired of fruitless efforts-make me fruitful Lord. Make me fruitful! far more fruitful than I‘ve ever been! I know You can do it! It is within Your power, Lord God Almighty within a very short period of time Lord make me fruitful. I know you can do it Lord. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Even if you don’t pray any other prayer pray this one with all your heart. Say,“Father since You are the Almighty – make me mighty! make my fruit mighty! Physically, financially, spiritually, make me mighty! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! Father, since You are the Almighty make me mighty! make my fruit mighty-physically, spiritually, ministerially, make me mighty Lord! Make me mighty! Since You are the Almighty God, since with You all things are possible, since there is no limit with You, Lord God Almighty make me mighty! Make me mighty! Make me mighty! Make my fruit mighty!

Lord make me mighty! Tremendously mighty! Make me the mightiest in the whole world! Make me mighty, Thank You Father! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Then you lift your voice to Him and say, “Father, raise me far above my enemy and above all my competitors. Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! Rate me far above all my enemies and above all my competitors! Put me in a class by myself! A class of greatness the world has never seen before! Rate me far above all my enemies – far, far, far above all my competitors! Lift me up, Lord let me stand…….. Thank You Father! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Then you lift up your voice to Him and say, “Father make me a blessing to the whole world. ” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now remember what I said: If you knock at the door and the door didn’t open you can kick it open. That’s the moment now. Between you and God, whatever you know you must have that your joy may be full, between you and God now, by force, kick open the door, tell the Almighty God it has to be tonight, tonight, tonight! Lord tonight! This is it, this is it Lord! This is the night, this is the night! This is the night! This is the night! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now I want you to join your hands. Now the word of God says one of you will chase a thousand, two of you will chase ten thousand to flight. You are going to pray, for your brother now and your sister. You are going to say, “Father this Your child that I’m holding, from now on let him produce mighty fruits! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God. This Your child that I’m holding, Lord let him produce mighty, mighty, mighty fruit Lord! Mighty fruit Lord!

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

THE SOUND OF ABUNDANCE OF RAIN

3rd of October, 2003

Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!). There is someone here tonight who will never lack again (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’(Alleluia!) There is someone here tonight whose joy is going to overflow! (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) There is someone here tonight who will never know sorrow again! (Amen!) There is a song, it’s new because of the way I am going to sing it and it is a song for somebody that is very special to God. It simply says “I believe. Yes Lord, I believe. It is well with me.” Who is that fellow? Let me hear you shout a big ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

 

Now it goes like this…… “I believe Yes Lord I believe, Yes Lord I believe, it is well with me.” Let me hear you sing it again now. “I believe in Jesus……”. Now we are going to allow the sisters to start. Let’s take the English verse first. You see this song is so important because it is the song you will sing for the rest of your life. So let’s hear from the sisters: “I believe, Yes Lord…….” Alright, brothers, are we ready? I didn’t hear! three four………. “I believe Yes Lord I believe……”

 

The Bible says, With the heart man believes but with the mouth confession is made. It is what you say with your mouth that will happen to you. I want you to sing this song as if you really mean it because as you say tonight, so shall it be! “I believe. Yes Lord I believe Yes Lord I believe it is well with me……” Alright, let’s give God a big round of applause if you believe that one. In order that our Yoruba speakers who cannot sing in English may go along with us, we will help them and join them sing, then everybody will then sing in their own language. Mo gbagbo, Jesu mi mo gbagbo, Jesu mi mo gbagbo yio dara fun mi…. Alright now you are going to bring out your handkerchiefs. The elders have a saying – it is with your mouth that you say I refuse to eat. This time you are not just going to wave your handkerchief you are going to swing it. You are going to swing it so that the enemy will know and say no more sickness, no more sorrow. Are you ready now? “I believe in Jesus, Yes Lord I believe, Yes Lord I believe it is well with me…..”

 

I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, “Father, I believe from tonight, in my life there will be no more sorrow, no more sickness, no more failure, no more bondage, no more poverty.” Cry! Talk to Almighty God! Say it loud and clear! “Father I believe! I believe in You, that from tonight in my life there will be no more sorrow in the mighty name of Jesus. There will be no more sickness, there will be no more death, there will be no more failure, there will be no more bondage, no more demons, no more poverty in the mighty name of Jesus! I believe with my heart, I proclaim with my mouth, from tonight there will be no more sorrow for me, no more failure whether the enemy likes it or not in the mighty name of Jesus! I believe and proclaim it in the mighty name of Jesus – there will be no more sorrow in my life, no more sickness, no more diseases, no more poverty, no more lack in the mighty name of Jesus, no more defeat in the mighty name of Jesus! I proclaim and I believe it is well me. From now on I will be singing a new song of victory, a new song of joy! I believe Lord! No more lack, no more dryness, no more barrenness, no more fruitless effort in the mighty name of Jesus! I believe it is well with me. My tomorrow will be alright! Whether the devil likes it or not my tomorrow will be alright! I believe Lord! Yes I believe! I believe in the mighty King of kings, the Lord of Lords, the Ancient of Days! I believe no more suffering! I believe Lord! I believe it is well with me. I believe that my tomorrow will be alright! I believe my joy will overflow! I believe that the enemy will never rejoice over me! I believe that it’s well with me! I believe that it will be well with my family. I believe that it will be well with the Redeemed Christian Church of God. I believe, that it will be well with churches of God all over the world. I believe that it will be well with Nigeria. I believe Lord God Almighty that all will be well! I believe that tomorrow will be alright! Yes Lord I believe! I believe King of kings, Lord of Lords that You will show Your Almightiness in my life! From today onwards I believe that it will be well. No more failure, no more sickness, no more defeat, no more death, no more mourning! Lord God Almighty no more bondage, no more demons in my life, I believe! In the mighty name of Jesus I believe! I believe! I believe! I believe Lord! I believe You! O Yes, Lord I believe! Blessed be the name of the Lord forever more. Glory be to Your name Lord! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, “Father I believe that those who put their trust in You, they are never put to shame therefore I declare in the name of Jesus, I will never know shame again.” Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! “Father I believe, I declare according to Your word, that those who put their trust in You they are never put to shame. So I declare I will never be put to shame again for the rest of my life! I believe in You Lord! I declare with my mouth that I will never know shame again! I will never know shame again! I will never know shame again because I put my trust in You and You said those who put their trust in You shall never be put to shame. They will never be ashamed. I will never be put to shame again. The enemy will never put me to shame again. In the mighty name of Jesus I believe and I proclaim it loud and clear that I will never be put to shame again in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, I believe! I will never, never, never know shame again! I will never, never know shame again! Will never, never know shame again! Oh Blessed be Your Holy name Lord! I proclaim with my mouth now that heaven may hear, that I believe You! I put my trust in You Lord and I will never be put to shame. Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

And one more time – you lift your voice to Almighty God and say, “Father I believe! Because you are the Lord of Hosts and you have never lost a battle I believe the enemy will never triumph over me!” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! Let Him hear you! “I believe Lord! Since You are the Lord of Hosts and You have never lost a battle, Yes Lord I believe I will never lose a battle………I believe Lord! Lord of Hosts You have never lost a battle, and I am not going to lose one. The enemy will never triumph over me! I believe, Yes Lord I believe! No more disease for me! No more defeat, no enemy will ever triumph over me! You are the Lord of Hosts You have never lost a battle, You are my Father! Yes Lord, I believe the enemy will never triumph over me! Blessed be Your Holy name Lord! Thank You Jesus! Blessed be Your name! Thank You Father. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

Now if you believe that, let’s go on our knees before the Almighty and worship the only One who can make it come to pass that there will be no more lack, no more sorrow, no more sickness, no more death, no more defeat, no more failure. Let’s just worship Him! Let’s bless His Holy name! Let’s magnify His Holy name! Go ahead praise Him! Worship Him! Adore Him! Lord I love You, I love You Lord and magnify Your Holy name! King of Kings, Lord of Lords, the I Am that I Am, the Ancient of Days! The Unchangeable Lord! I praise You. You have never lost a battle, Oh thank You because you are my Daddy, You are my Daddy, You are my Daddy! You are the Almighty God! I worship You! I magnify Your Holy name! Blessed be Your Holy name Lord! Blessed be Your Holy name! You are the Rock of Ages! You are the Unchangeable Lord! You are the Unchangeable Changer! You have no beginning, You have no ending! You are the Alpha, You are the Omega! You are the beginning, You are the ending! You are the Almighty God! I worship You Lord! I adore You Lord! The Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Glory be to Your Holy name Lord! Yes Lord I believe that You are higher than the highest! You are better than the best! You are greater than the greatest1 You are wiser than the wisest! Glory be to Your Holy name! Glory be to Your Holy name! Oh Yes Lord I worship you! I magnify Your Holy name! Blessed, Blessed, Blessed, Blessed be Your Holy name! Blessed be Your Holy name Lord! Blessed be Your name! Glory be to Your name Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Father! Ah thank You Lord! Blessed be Your Holy name! Blessed be Your Holy name! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! In Jesus mighty name we have worshiped! (Amen!)

 

The Lord asked me to tell you, I will defend my own. (Amen!) He said I will defend my own. (Amen!)

 

He said there is someone here, the Lord asked me to tell you, it shall be said of you, this is the blessing of the Lord. (Amen!)

 

O Yes Lord! we believe that Father, we receive it Lord, we give You all the Glory! Father we appreciate You! We love You, we adore You! King of Kings, Lord of Lords! I Am that I Am! Demonstrate Your power here tonight! Show Your glory here tonight in Jesus name! Thank You Father! Glory be to Your name! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

 

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is somebody here tonight, He said I will expand your capacity for success. (Amen!) Your ability to succeed, He said I will expand. (Amen!) So shall it be!

 

This month shall be a very special month for you. (Amen!) The kind of blessing you’ve never known before will come you way this month. (Amen!) For the first time in your life, this month, you are going to say “God this blessing is too much!” (Amen!) Everywhere you go this month God will bless you. (Amen!) Wherever you turn, ways will be opened unto you. (Amen!) Where they have said no before, this month they will say Yes! (Amen!) It shall be well with you. (Amen!) It shall be well with your children. (Amen!) It shall be well with your family. (Amen!) It shall be well with your churches. (Amen!) It shall be well with Nigeria. (Amen!) Let me hear your “Amen” to that loud and clear! (Amen!) Shake hands with two or three people. Tell them “It is well with me. I believe it is well with me. It is well with me. It is well with me.” Glory be to God! And then you may be seated. Go ahead! Give the Lord a big round of applause.

 

I must confess that the choir is getting better month by month, It’s becoming difficult to say which one did the best which is very good. That is the kind of thing I’m looking forward to but tonight the Headquarters being mother still, slightly managed to come first. They slightly beat Mafoluku to second place, but every choir tonight did excellently well. Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause for them. It is not an easy thing to be in the choir. There are hours and hours for practice. Apart from that we all know that Satan hates them because he used to be the choir-master in heaven before he was kicked out. So when he hears good music he says, “Eh you don’t know how to do it!” But he had been kicked out so we take his place. So some of us will sing far, far better than he had ever done and those of us who don’t have the beautiful voices of the choir, at least we can make a joyful noise to the Lord. Alleluia! Amen!

 

Last month we finished early. Tonight I don’t know when we will finish so tell your neighbour “Get ready for something serious.” Better say it loud and clear, “Get ready for something serious”

 

1 King 18. The first preacher has preached my sermon. He did a very good job too by the way. I think we should give the Lord a big round of applause for that sermon. 1 King 18:41 : And Elijah said unto Ahab get thee up and eat and drink – all of you who have been lacking food, from this month you will have abundant to eat. (Amen!) And those of you who have food but could not eat because of sickness, from today you will be able to eat and enjoy – for there is a sound of abundance of rain. Elijah said I hear the sound of abundance of rain. With all humility Pastor Adeboye is saying today, I hear the sound of abundance! (Amen!)

 

Let’s start form the word “hear”. In Gen 1:26-27 the Bible makes it clear to us that man was created in the image of God. It said in the image of God created he them, male and female created he them. So you are created in the image of God and as a result you are a trinity. 1 Thess. 5:23 It says you are a spirit, you have a soul living in a body. So there are three parts of you – spirit, soul and body. As a result of this every man, woman has three sets of eyes, and three sets of ears. I’m not going to spend time on eyes because that’s not important tonight but I have to talk about the ears. Because tonight, by the special grace of God, you will begin to hear. (Amen!)

 

We have the physical ears and we all know how important the physical ears can be. If somebody is walking along the road and he is deaf and didn’t know when a car is coming from behind, the deafness can cause him death. Even if good is coming and somebody says, “Everybody come and receive something good,” the deaf will not hear and may not be able to get it. Today God will open your ears. (Amen!) And then there is the ear called the ear of understanding, the ear of the soul. Mark 4:23 The Lord Jesus himself said, he who has ears to hear let him hear. It doesn’t talk about physical ears here, it said, he who wants to understand, let him understand. And then there is the spiritual ear. The spiritual ear is the one that you use to hear the voice of God. You begin to hear in the Bible the word of God came to so, so and so. In 2 Sam 7:4-5 the Bible says, the word of God came to Nathan. Today the word of God will come to you. (Amen!) The spiritual ear is what you use to ear when God is speaking. Everybody may be sitting down, listening to music, hearing nothing other than with their ordinary ears but somebody may suddenly be hearing God speaking.

 

I have told you before, the first time I heard a word of prophecy, as a young Christian, I have attended a fellowship. We have been singing, worshipping God suddenly there was silence and somebody began to speak and said, “Thus said the Lord,” and then he began to speak and I told the man who took me there, “When did God say that? I didn’t hear anything!” He said, “Keep quiet! keep quiet! God is talking!” I was a new Christian. I’ve never heard God speak before. Thank God now I hear Him speak. And I can tell you categorically, I have heard the sound of abundance. I say have heard the sound of abundance!

 

When God speaks to your spiritual ears it can be as clear as the voice of a man. Like in 1 Sam 3:3-10 the first time that Samuel heard the voice of God he thought it was Eli calling him. He ran to Eli, “I am here sir.” Eli said, “I didn’t call you.” He went back and lay down. The second time the Lord came and said, “Samuel, Samuel!” Whose name is God going to call tonight? Whose name? You better call that name let Him hear your name. Oh yes He’s going to call “Adeboye, Adeboye.” Three times it happened. Then Eli said, “It is God calling him.” Next time you hear, tell Him: “Speak Lord, thy servant heareth.”

 

Now in Amos 3:7 The Bible says God will not do anything without first of all revealing it to His servants, the prophets. Anytime God wants to do anything new, something special, He will tell His prophets first. In Psalm 25:14 The Bible says the secret of the Lord is with them that fear him. I want you to know that God wants to do something new in your life. You better say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!) It may not look like that. It may not appear so. At the time Elijah heard the sound of the abundance of rain there had been dryness for more than three years and the sky was as clear as anything. There was no cloud at all. But then he heard with the spiritual ears and I’m hearing, by the special grace of God, the sound of abundance for me and you. If it is for you too! Say, “Amen” loud and clear! (Amen!) Whenever rain is coming, it is the prophets of God that will hear first. In 2 King 7:1 it was Elisha who heard that within a day famine will be over. He was the first one to hear. I’m happy you are here this month because you are the first to hear now. Abundance is on the way!

 

Thank You Father! While we are talking, God has been doing all kinds of healing. For example there was someone here, the Lord said it’s as if a massive hand is pulling your navel and that hand has been removed by force. (Amen!)

 

And the Lord said, there is someone here it’s as if pepper has entered into your brain. That’s how your brain is feeling. If you check now you will know your brain has become cool. The pepper is gone. Thank God.

 

Now when God wants to do something, He may reveal it to unbelievers in the form of dreams but they won’t understand until they get a prophet of God to come and interpret the dream. In Gen. 41:25-36 for example, it was the king of Egypt that had the dream but it took Joseph to give him the interpretation. Whenever God wants to do something new, He will reveal it first and God is about to do something new in Nigeria, and God is about to do something new in your life! I didn’t hear your “Amen” to that! (Amen!)

 

When God speaks, it is settled. When God says, this is what I want to do, that is a settled matter. Circumstances may contradict, but that doesn’t change anything that God wants to do. In Rom 4:17 the Bible said, when God was talking to Abraham, that he was going to be a father of a nations, father of many nations. He was talking to somebody who was barren and was old. But God calls things that be not as though they were. Abundance is already coming the way of somebody here tonight. (Amen!) When God spoke to Moses in Ex. 17:1-6………..

 

Thank You Father! There is somebody here, for quite some time it is as if there is ice block in your chest. But that ice-block has been removed now.

 

When God spoke to Moses and said, “Take your rod, go to this rock and smite the rock and plenty of water will come out.” It was an ordinary rock, dry as anything, but because God said water will come out of it, water gushed out. It doesn’t matter what your situation may be, abundance is coming your way! (Amen!) I say abundance is coming your way! (Amen!)

 

Now the word of God says that whatever word that had proceeded from the mouth of God will not return to Him void. He said once He has spoken, the word will bring to pass what He has said. For example when He said through Elisha that there was going to be plenty of food within a day, He used four lepers to bring it to pass. I don’t know who God is going to use to bring abundance into your life but that fellow will bring it very soon. (Amen!) The Almighty God, as we learnt last month, can use a boy with a little lunch to bring abundance to thousands of people. I know there is a member of your family that God is going to use. It might be somebody that nobody can ever think can be useful and you might be the one the Almighty is going to use. But many a times God uses his prophet to go and tell someone that the day of want is over. That is what happened to the widow of Zaraphat in 1 King 17:8-16

 

Thank You Father! The Lord said someone just asked who will ever help me? The Lord asked me to tell you, I the Almighty God will help you! (Amen!)

 

The widow of Zaraphat had only one meal left when the prophet arrived. And the prophet said, there will never be lack of food in this house again and from that day the food kept on multiplying. I don’t know how God is going to do it, but for those who have ears to hear tonight, abundance is coming your way! (Amen!)

 

Now hearing is very important because hearing is related to having. I was studying the Bible one day when I came across Mark 4 and when I read it I thought they must have made a mistake in my Bible. So I checked the second Bible, and the third and the fourth and I found it is the same thing. I read it to you. Mark 4:24 And he said unto them take heed what ye hear, with what measure ye mete it shall be measured to you. The section that I find difficult to believe is the one that says, “And unto you that hear shall more be given.” Unto you that…. what? “Hear….. shall more be given.” Now lift your hands to the Almighty God and say, “God let me hear You tonight, let me hear You tonight.” Hearing is important. You must hear from God before your abundance can come.

 

In Gen. 12:1-3 God spoke to Abraham and said to him, “I will bless you.” God first of all told him. Abraham heard it – God is going to bless me. That was the first thing that happened and by the time we get to Gen 24:34-35 we discover that what God said, had already come to pass. Verse 35 says, “And the Lord has blessed my master – that is Abraham – greatly and he is become great and he has given him flocks, and herds and silver and gold and men servants and female servants and camels and asses.” There is somebody here tonight, God is going to bless you greatly! (Amen!) You are going to become great! (Amen!) God is going to give you flocks and herds and silver and gold and men servants and female servants and camels and asses! (Amen!) You better say ‘Amen’ loud and clear! (Amen!) Because once you hear it, it shall come to pass!

 

In 1 King 3:11-13 God spoke to Solomon and said I will make you richer than any King before you or after you. By the time we get to 1 King 10:24-27, The Bible says Solomon became so rich that silver became like ordinary stones. And how did God do it? Everybody that came to hear Solomon, they brought him gifts. Those that will bring you abundance – from the East they will come, from the West they will come, from the North they will come, from the South they will come because God will make you very, very great! (Amen!)

 

In Luke 5:4 Jesus Christ said to Peter, “Let down your net for a massive catch.” He heard it first before the massive catch came.

 

Oh Thank You Father the Lord said there is someone here tonight who has been having serious problems with the kidneys, so that you have to use a machine before you can urinate. The Lord asked me to tell you, from now on you can urinate freely. (Amen!) That’s a big one. Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause. Thank You Father! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! That’s a great one.

 

So hearing is so important. When the greatest miracle was going to Mary, it happened through hearing. In fact, I remember when I was young I was a catechist in our village, there was a catechist in our village and he used to say Mary got pregnant through the ears and we used to laugh at him. Now I know that the man was speaking the truth. The angel told Mary, “You will be pregnant. You will become a mother of someone so great.” And remember what Mary said in Luke 1:38 It said, “Let it be unto thy maid according to your word.” Tonight I pray that God will let you hear. (Amen!)

 

Hearing is related to having and is related to health. Ex. 15:26 The Lord said if you will hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord, your God that is the condition that will lead to having no sickness, no disease in your body. Hearing is related to security. Pro 1:33 the Lord says, they that listen to me, they that hear me shall dwell safely. From tonight you will begin to hear in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

The reason why hearing is so important is because hearing is also connected to obedience. You have to hear the commandment before you can obey it. As a matter of fact when you hear the Yoruba definition of obedience, the Yoruba say obedience is hearing. When they want to talk about a child who is disobedient what do they call him? “Alaigboran.” …. he can’t hear…… The disobedient child, is a child who can’t hear. When there is a child who is obedient, who is always doing whatever you ask him to do, they call him “eletiomo” the child that has ears. When you want to give somebody very good advice in Yoruba they will say, “Open your ears.” May the Almighty God open your ears tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

Now there are two principal ways of hearing from God. One of these two ways is to hear directly from Him yourself. In 1 King 18:1 The Almighty God said to Elijah, “Go and show yourself to Ahab and I will send rain upon the earth.” So Elijah has already heard even before he left home that God is going to send rain but he was the only one who heard! So you can hear directly from God yourself. And then if you didn’t hear from God directly you can then hear the second way – through His prophets. So that the prophet of God can say, I’ve heard something from God and I’m now telling you. And I’m telling you today – I have heard from God. I have heard the sound of abundance. (Amen!)

 

Thank You Father! It’s a very big one. The Lord says there is someone here, the doctor has diagnosed that your liver is enlarged which is a very serious situation indeed. The Lord asked me to tell you to go for another test. Your liver is normal now. (Amen!) O Yes! Glory be to God!

 

Now in Ezek. 37:1-10 In that story of the valley of dry bones – you remember when God took Ezekiel to the valley of very dry bones and He asked Ezekiel, “Can these bones live?” and Ezekiel said, “God it’s only You can tell,” God said to Ezekiel, “Prophesy to the bones.” Something interesting is here. Ezekiel prophesied to dry bones. He said, “Dry bones come together!” And immediately they began to obey. It tells you one thing or several things really. Number one, even dead bones can hear and your bones which are not yet dead will hear the word of God tonight. (Amen!) All those bones that are out of joint will hear the word of God tonight! (Amen!) and shall obey God! Now if dry bones can hear, your body as a whole can hear and I’m prophesying to your body tonight – body hear the word of the Lord! Every sickness in you shall go out now! (Amen!) Every disease shall go out now! (Amen!)

 

Now if dry bones can hear the word of God, your head can hear the word of God – that head that you use to refuse prayer. I’m prophesying to those heads now – head hear the word of the Lord! From now on, it will be well with you! (Amen!) But do you know the most important thing is? If the dry bones can hear, then human beings that are still alive can hear and you will hear tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

After hearing there is something called understanding. It is one thing to hear, it is another thing to understand. Anybody can hear a sound but it is not everybody who can understand what is said. If two Germans are talking and you don’t understand German, you will be hearing the sound but you will not know what they are saying. For example in those days when we were in secondary school, there was a language we were learning – they call “Latin”. I’m sure many of you don’t know any Latin now so when you hear me saying “polamalamacana mana………you won’t know what am I’m saying – you heard the sound but those who know Latin will know that I have just said that as bad apples spoil good ones, so bad friends spoil good ones. That’s what I’ve just said. So it is one thing to hear a sound. It is another thing to understand. From tonight, the grace to understand shall be given unto you. (Amen!) I say the grace to understand shall be given unto you! (Amen!)

 

In John 12:28-29 God spoke to Jesus clearly from heaven but all the people who were standing by they said it thundered whereas God was speaking to His Son. So the question now is, how come some people will hear but they won’t understand? At times it is because God doesn’t want them to understand. Isaiah 6:9

 

By the way there is someone here having ankle problems. God says He’s taking care of your ankle problems.

 

Isaiah 6:9: God said concerning certain people, He said, Hear indeed but don’t understand. I pray that you will not be in that category of people in Jesus name! (Amen!) How come that some people hear and they just don’t understand? God said because if they hear and repent then He will be compelled to heal them. So they hear but won’t understand. You will hear and you will understand in Jesus name! (Amen!) For example, we will all hear again and again and again Luke 6:38. The Bible says, give and you shall be given. It is Jesus speaking here. Some people only hear ‘give…’ they don’t hear ‘….you shall be given’ and when they hear that one they say – “Here the Pastor comes, he wants to take my money!” They’ve forgotten the other part that says you shall be given. We all hear 2 Corinth. 9:6 that he who sows bountifully shall reap bountifully. They hear only the sow aspect, they don’t hear the reap aspect.

 

Many of us hear Malachi 3:10-11 that God said you should bring all the tithes into His house and test Him therewith if He will not open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that there will not be enough room to receive and that He will rebuke the devourer for our sake. All some people hear is “bring all the tithes……” and they say, “You must be joking!” I was in that category before. I mean I was for months in that category, after I became a Christian. And I said, “If I don’t know anything at least I know mathematics. 100% is not enough. Now you are telling me 90% will be more than enough! Who are you deceiving?” It took God’s special mercy to cause me to understand that, Ah it is God speaking, not man, and the moment I understood that it is God speaking and the Bible said God is not a man that He should lie and that He is not the son of man that He should repent, everything changed in my life. The ability to understand, the Almighty God will give you tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here, there has been a chain round your neck and He says he has broken that chain now and you are free. (Amen!) Oh Thank You Father! Glory be to God! Glory be to God!

 

And you wonder why is it that some people cannot understand? Because the Bible says in Pro. 20:12 He said that the hearing ear is only from the Lord, and the Almighty God is going to give to you today the hearing ear! (Amen!) Many a times when God wants to bless only one person, a multitude may be there. They may hear the same sound, only one will understand because I’ve always wondered what happened in John 5:1-9

 

Thank You Father! The Almighty God said there is someone here tonight, the fire that is burning in your chest had been put out. (Amen!) Whoever the fellow is will know that there was a fire burning inside your chest. That fire has been put out.

 

John 5:1-9 The Bible says there was a multitude of people by the pool of Bethesda and only one was healed. Why? I can’t understand. Jesus stood there. They could all see him. Jesus was a popular man in that time and they saw him talking to this man and I’m sure there will be several people nearby, enough to hear what He was saying, when He was saying, “Will you be made whole?” If people nearby could have said – when that man was saying, “Eh eh my people brought me here and they have left etc…..” the others could have said, “Lord Jesus, he’s not ready, I am ready!” But that man is the one that God wanted to bless. So he’s the only one who heard. He’s the only one who understood! Who is the man that God is going to bless tonight? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

 

Do you know, in spite of all the miracles that the Almighty has performed at the Holy Ghost Service, some people still don’t know that Holy Ghost Service is not just for healing the sick, making the lame walk, making the blind to see even though that is important, but it is a meeting place where man meets with GodIt’s the place where God gives victory in every facet of life. One man understood it. Years ago when we were still in the old auditorium there. It was Holy Ghost day. There was fuel scarcity and this fellow has no job. He has lost his job. He said I am going to meet God and I know if I meet him He will solve my problem. You know he trekked from Lagos! He woke up very early in the morning. There was no money for transport anyway and even if there is money for transport, vehicles were scarce. He trekked all the way – he got up early in the morning and arrived just before the program started and I heard about it. I had made the announcement. I said, “Look at somebody who trekked all the way from Lagos.” Do you know that he had six offers of employment! He came without a job, he went home with six different offers! I don’t know who you are but there is somebody here today, you are going home with abundance! (Amen!) If you hear that, say ‘Amen’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

 

Do you know that in the land of Israel the name Lazarus is a common name. It’s a common name. It’s just like Ade in Yoruba land. I don’t think you can get to any village in Yoruba land where there is not somebody called Ade – something. But do you know that when Jesus stood by the tomb and said, ‘Lazarus come forth,” all the Lazarus that had died could have come out that day? But only one heard. One fellow will ear the voice of God tonight. (Amen!) Who is that fellow? Let me hear you say ‘Amen’ (Amen!)

 

Elijah heard the sound of the abundance of rain and he understood, “Ah, that rain is coming.” He understood it and then he received it, That is the third thing you must take note of tonight. Hearing is important, understanding is important, receiving what God has said by faith is very important. It takes faith to receive the sound of abundance of rain in the clear sky. After more than three years of dryness there are some of us here who will say, “How can abundance ever come my way?” You must take it by faith. It is going to require you receiving it by faith. When Elijah said to the widow of Zarephat the meal that you said you have in the house, go and prepare it for me and from that day onwards there will always be food in this house, it took faith on the part of the woman, of the widow, to receive that statement. I pray that the Almighty God will increase your faith tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) If I were to say to you tonight that there are some of you here who came by public transport but between now and next year, you will be choosing which car to bring to the Holy Ghost! (Amen!) How many of you heard that one? How many of you understand? How many of you receive that? Let me hear you say ‘Amen’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

 

In 2 King 7:1-2 when Elisha said that by this time tomorrow there will be so much food that nobody will even want to bother to buy. It is difficult to believe because people were already eating their children! That was how scarce food was! It was difficult to receive it by faith, yet you have to receive it by faith. Again and again in my life I have seen situations when, but for faith in God, it would have been impossible to believe, to receive. When God told Peter, “Throw your net for a mighty catch.” it was difficult to believe. That’s why he said, “Lord I’ve fished all night and I caught nothing, so don’t let me waste my time throwing all nets.” – because he had his doubts. Finally he threw at least one net. And I have good news for somebody – no matter how difficult it seems for you to believe, very soon poverty will become a stranger to you. (Amen!)

 

Remember that the Almighty God who is talking to you is also called the All-Sufficient One. Remember Psalm 24:1 says the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. Remember the Bible says that the Lord made all things and therefore He can control all things. How He’s going to bring abundance into your life I don’t know! But just receive it by faith! He can use birds. He has done it before. He fed Elijah for a whole year by sending birds twice a day. They brought bread and meat morning and evening. He knows what He’s going to do. He can use fish. He can ask the fish to open its mouth and put in money there and then He can ask you to go and catch the fish. When he said that Peter should throw his net, I am sure He commanded the fish in the river to keep jumping into the net. Your miracles will begin to jump into your house from now! (Amen!) I know this must be true because once upon a time, I went fishing with some of my friends. Each time I throw in the hook into the river, it caught a fish. I didn’t even have to wait. As soon as the hook got into the river, I pull it out and there is a fish there! It was as if the fish were struggling to be caught. I want to tell you that very soon blessing will be struggling to come into your house! (Amen!)

 

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here, He said, as Pharaoh sponsored the education of Moses so will I use your opponent to promote you! (Amen!) Do you know that all the days that Pharaoh was paying for the education of Moses he was doing it joyfully. Everyone opposing you now will be used by God to promote you! (Amen!)

 

I want you to know one thing for sure, the Bible says in Romans 11:33 it said the ways of God are past finding out. You can’t find out His ways. How He’s going to do it – I don’t know! I’ve told you the story before of a young man who came to me, “Daddy pray for me. Very soon I want to be able to sponsor the Convention.” I said, “Oh that’s wonderful!” So I prayed for him and he left. The following week he came back. He said, “I asked you to pray for me so that I can sponsor the Convention. I got to my place of work and they sacked me!” “Congratulations!” He said, “How can you say, ‘Congratulations?’ I lost my job! How can I sponsor the Convention when I lost my job?” I said, “How much are you earning? How can you sponsor the Convention from your salary? My God has shut one door so that He can open another.” There is somebody here tonight, the door of abundance will open to you this month in Jesus name! (Amen!) His ways are not our ways, His ways are different from our own – completely. Don’t try to use your little brain to understand how will He do it. Hear it, understand it receive it – then you can see God in action.

 

There is somebody here who is going to give a testimony soon in Jesus name! (Amen!) Then what is the next thing you do after you have heard it, understood it, received it? The next thing is proclaim it! Say it with your mouth! Let God know you have believed! One of the greatest signs of faith is what you say. 2 Corinth. 4:13 it says, ‘I believe therefore I speak’. How many of you believe that it’s going to be well with you? Then say it with your mouth! “It is well with me!” You better say it loud and clear! “It is well with me.” You know some people look at me – some of my children, when I say, “How are you?” and they say, “I’m great!”. They look at the fellow and they say, “What is he saying?” Let them wait. Very soon they will know that what you are saying is what you shall be! So how are you? “I’m great!” I say, “How are you?” “I’m great!” “How great?” “Very great!” Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

 

Thank You Father! The Lord just said there is somebody here who heard the sound as if a tree is being uprooted. The Lord asked me to tell you, that the tree of poverty has been uprooted in your family! (Amen!)

 

The Bible says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The Bible says in Pro 18:21 It said death and life are in the power of the tongue – whether you are going to live the rest of your life in abundance or poverty is in the power of your tongue! It depends on what you say. If you believe, you must say it out.

 

When I was very young, carrying – you know in those days when you are going to primary school – your slate something – you write…. you call it slate abi? slate rather! I carried my slate on my head, hold my chalk with one hand.. There was an old man in my village, anytime I’m passing by he will look at me and say, “Akowe Agba!”. Here is somebody going to the school, and that time I’m sure whether I could write a..b..d… up to the end. And when I get to school I will look at my classmate and announce to them, “I am Akowe Agba!!” Later on as I began to grow, suddenly the same old man, an ordinary farmer, started calling me a different name. He began to call me ‘Baba Eko’ – the Daddy of Lagos! That was someone who lived in Ifewara who had never gone to Ilesha – he started calling me “Baba Eko!” And whenever I’m joking with my friends I will announce to them this is ‘Akowe Agba Baba Eko!’.

 

Who are you? Let me hear you say it loud and clear! “I’m great” There are some of you who are going to be the greatest! (Amen!) So tell your friend, “I’m going to be the greatest!” Say it loud and clear! Say it one more time! That’s why that song that I taught you at the beginning must never leave your mouth again. Keep singing it from now on. Don’t wait till December before you sing your own! Don’t wait till the Congress when we begin to sing it as our song. Before the Congress comes you will have testimonies. (Amen!) Say it one more time, “It is well with me!”

 

The Bible says, By your word you will be justified. The Shunamaite woman that we read about in 2 king 4:18-26, when the child died, she started by saying, “It shall be well. It shall be well.” By the time she ended, she said, “It is well.” Do you know before the day was over, it was well! I believe, Yes Lord I believe! It is well with me. Say it loud and clear: I believe! Yes Lord I believe it is well with me. When Abraham was taking his son, Isaac, to the mountain top in Gen:7-13 the boy said, “Father I can see the knife. I can see the wood. I can see the fire. Where is the Lamb for the offering?” What was it that Abraham said? He said, “The Lord will provide”. Did God provide? (Yes!) Oh tell your neighbour: God will provide abundantly for me! Say it loud and clear so God himself will hear! Mark 11…..

 

Thank You Father! The Lord said I should ask a question. Is any one here ready for a surprise? (Yes!) He asked me to tell you then, whoever you are, the day is come when you will say I’ve never had it so good! (Amen!) I think if you are the one you should just stand up and wave your hand to the Almighty God and say, “Yes Lord I receive that! I receive that! I receive that! I’m ready for that! I’m ready for that! I’m ready for that surprise! O Yes Lord I believe! Lord I receive it, I receive it! Lord, I receive it Lord! Glory be to Your Holy name in Jesus mighty name!” (Amen!) God bless you, you may be seated.

 

In Mark 11……. Oh Thank You Jesus! In Mark 11:23 the Bible says….. this is my own interpretation…. your word can create something for you. It said a man will have whatsoever he says. When we came to Camp in 1983, this was the headquarters of highway robbers on the Expressway. The only other people sharing this place with them, who are plenty, were snakes – big ones, small ones. For your information I still killed one last night. But I told those of us who were here then that God is going to build a city here. How many of you remember that I told you? The first set of buildings – eleven in number, because we were so poor, we put some stick to the ground, just like the auditorium you see over there and we used block wall up to just about a metre high and then surrounded it with mosquito net. That was our city then and those who didn’t like us, they mocked us, They said, “Their camp is like the house of chickens.” They can’t mock us anymore now. All those who are mocking you, they will be silenced in Jesus name! (Amen!) Say with your mouth, “I believe, it is well with me!” It’s your voice that will call forth what is going to happen to you. Elijah announced it. He said, “I hear the sound of abundance of rain.” I am announcing to you what I’ve heard, loud and clear – through you, the Lord God is going to bring about a new definition of greatness. (Amen!) Within the next two years, as the Lord lives, when they are counting the richest people in the world they will mention your name! (Amen!) If you believe that give God a big round of applause.

 

You must speak boldly with your faith because just as your voice can create what is going to happen to you, so can it remove obstacles in your wayMark 11:23 said that if there is a mountain blocking your way, you speak to the mountain. It didn’t say go and get Caterpillar. It said speak to the mountain. Everything that will block your way to greatness shall be removed tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) Do you know that David had no sword in his hand when he said to Goliath, he said, “This day, this day I will kill you and I will cut off your head!” He had no sword. But before the day was over he was holding the head of Goliath. Every Goliath in your life shall lose their heads tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

You have to speak it, you have to speak it out, speak it out! It is what you believe that you will say. If you say that this month I shall have a breakthrough so shall it be. Many of us spend all our days complaining. When you see two or three people sitting together now, they will be talking about all the difficulties in Nigeria. I never sit down with them. I get up and leave. You can talk about mountains, describe them, make them look bigger – my own assignment is to remove them. Every mountain in your life, this month, they will jump into the sea in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

In the story of the woman with the issue of blood she said it and as she said, so it happened and this is going to be a month that you will never forget for the rest of your life! (Amen!)

 

Thank You Father! You know I said it, my Father has ratified it. Daddy says tell my children I will silence their mockers! (Amen!) He said I will silence their mockers! (Amen!) All those who think you will never become anything I want to prophesy to you in the name of the Lord – many of them, you will employ them! (Amen!) I say you will employ them! (Amen!) Because they will come to you and will say, “Help us!” “No problem! You want to work? I will give you work!” So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

The Lord says there is one old fellow here, who said that, I wish I were younger. The Lord asked me to tell you, you are not too old for me to help. He will help me in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

So you hear it and I’m sure you have heard the sound of abundance of rain, you understand it, you receive it by faith then you proclaim it by faith and the next thing – you should work for it. Ah ah! We thought that thing will just come. Money will just drop from heaven! Oh Yes it’s going to drop from heaven in form of opportunities – contracts (Amen!) businesses! (Amen!) promotions! (Amen!) that’s coming your way in Jesus name! (Amen!) But like the preacher who preached first said, you better get ready for hard work because 2 Thess.3:10 it said those who will not work should not eat. If you have any relative who is lazy and you want to help him or her, don’t give him food. When hunger comes he will learn to work. He who will not work should not eat. The promise of God is you shall eat the labour of your hand. If you are not going to work then there is nothing to eat. The promise of God for those He will bless is that whatsoever they do shall prosper. There are some people who have heard what I’ve said and they will run away with half of what I have said. It is not enough for you to say, “I am great! I am rich!” And they ask you to come and work and you say I don’t want to work. You can say, ‘I am great!’ from morning till night. If you don’t work, you will be small. Can you imagine somebody going around, everyday for ten years saying, “I am a doctor. I am a doctor! I believe I am a doctor!” and he did not go to medical school? Maybe he will be a doctor of shoes!

 

I know some of my friends, we came into full time ministry around the same time and you know the principle of faith that when you believe you must confess and every morning they will wake up and say, ‘I have a car, I have a car. I confess….” They wake up 11 o’clock. They get to work by 1 o’clock and close 3 o’clock. You see them who say, “I’m great, I’m great!” and will not study – he will be great in getting zero. Some of my children before had said, “But you said God can do anything! Just begin to look for me. I can’t go to this one, I can’t go to this one.” and I was teaching at St.Finbarrs – teaching mathematics at CMS Grammar school, teaching mathematics…. don’t let me mention all the others, and if anybody asked in the office, where is this fellow? “The Dean sent him on an errand.” I don’t know how God is going to give you abundance but it will start this month! (Amen!) Are you ready for hard work? I say are you ready for hard work?

 

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is a man here your private organ has been growing steadily smaller. The Lord asked me to tell you, it is back to normal. Congratulations.

 

Now you must be ready for hard work but the hard work must be with wisdom.With what? With wisdom. Eccl. 9:16 it said wisdom is better than strength. As they say in Yoruba land “Alagbara mamero” Wisdom is better than strength. You have to use wisdom even in your hard work. Don’t be a scatterer but be a planter.Pro.11:24, it says there is he that scattereth and yet increaseth. That is true – the one who is scattering will increase, no doubt about that, but remember the story of the sower. Jesus Christ said the sower went out to sow, and as they do it in Israel in those days – I’m sure they don’t use that method anymore, you just take your bag of seed put your hand in the bag and fling the seed. What happens when the sower was sowing? Some fell by the wayside. Birds came and ate them. Some came and fell on the stone, on the stony ground, they grow up and dried up, Some fell among thorns. They grow up but thorns choked them. Some fell on good soil, thank God but consider, this man went to sow and he was scattering and three quarters of his effort was wasted. From today onward there will be no more wasted effort in you in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

There are some of us because we learnt ‘Give and it shall be given…’ anybody who says, “I need..”, we give to the fellow. Somebody writes to you – “So, so so evangelistic association, I need money….” so you send, You don’t even know whether the man is a man of God or not. There are so many 419 all over the world. When you want to plant, plant with wisdom. Don’t spend your energy without control. Control your energy. Be focused. I’ve told you the story before. For years I was going to America, attending one conference or the other and anytime it is time for offering, Oh because I learnt ‘Give and it shall be given unto you..’ so the little dollars I have, I begin to give. But I waited for return, nothing came back and like me I normally ask questions, “Daddy where is the harvest?” That night I had a dream and I saw myself in a very big farm land with many heaps and in that dream I knew it was my farm land and that I have planted yam in all of them and I was wondering that day, why is it that my yam is not germinating? And something just moved me in that dream to check what is wrong with my yam. And I discovered that under the yam was concrete and I woke up. And God told me you have been planting on concrete ground. That is why there had been no harvest. I prayed to God that day and things changed. Now my attention becomes focused. Now in ten years, by the special grace of God, the Redeemed Christian Church of God in North America started from one parish now to 154 parishes. I pray for you tonight, the wisdom you need so that every effort you put in will bring in abundance, God will give it to you in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

Work hard, work with wisdom. There are many of us, for example, the only things we sell are things that Christians will buy. There is no wisdom in that. You take money from him and bring to your pocket. The money is still in the same pocket. When God says that the wealth of the wicked is stored up for the righteous, how are we going to get it from them? Let’s think of what they need and sell it to them. Everybody now wants to sell tapes, Bibles…. How many Bibles are we going to have? God will give you wisdom, supernatural wisdom tonight. (Amen!) So that by the time you come next month many of you will already be employers of labour! (Amen!)

 

So you hear it, you understand it, you receive it by faith, you proclaim it, you work for it and then number six you pray for it and we are going to do some praying tonight. Why must I pray? Why did Elijah go to pray after he heard the sound of abundance of rain?

 

Number one the Bible says unless the Lord builds the house they labour in vain that build it. Psalm 127:1 Except the Lord build the house they labour in vain that build it. From tonight you will never labour in vain again. (Amen!) Not only that, the word of God says, “If you ask anything in my name I will do it.” John 14:14 Ask for abundance, Ask for it! open your mouth and ask for it! There is nothing wrong in praying for it! David said in Psalm 119:17 he said, “Deal bountifully with me, oh Lord.” That’s the prayer of David. That should be your own prayer also! If you pray the prayer and somebody says why are you praying for abundance, tell the fellow, “You pray for dryness. I want abundance!” And don’t pray once and stop. Elijah did not pray once and stop. He kept on praying seven times until the rain came! Remember, the Lord said you should ask till your joy be full. I’m still praying for great expansion! I’m praying that among you there will be billionaires! (Amen!) And because I know some of my colleagues, the Pastors, will be saying, “In our own case now what are we going to do? We can’t do business anymore – we are full time Pastors.” We must tighten our belts and pray for our members that everything called poverty in their lives must disappear. When the members prosper, the Pastor will prosper too! There are some of you here looking at me now, within the next one year you will buy a car for your Pastor! (Amen!) I didn’t hear your ‘Amen’ to that! (Amen!)

 

And then before you begin to pray, you have to settle certain issues. The first issue you must settle is ask yourself the question, “Why do I want abundance?” What do you want to do with abundance? After all no matter how rich you are, you can’t eat more than one meal at a time. You can’t wear more than one set of clothes at a time. Even if you have more than ten cars you can only ride in one at a time and if there are a hundred rooms in your house and you begin to move from one room to another everyday they will take you to Aro. What do you want abundance for? I already have the answer to my own. What do you want to use your abundance for? I want to use it to serve the Lord. What do you want to use your own for? That’s important because abundance is coming. There are some of you, no matter how hard you try, after tonight now you cannot even dodge the abundance that is coming your way. (Amen!) So you must settle that issue.

 

The second thing you must settle is, Am I going to be a wise steward of the abundance? because Prov.1:32 says the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. If prosperity comes to the fool it will kill him because he won’t know what to do with it. There are some of you now, who are cool-headed Christians doing the will of God. If money comes, real big money – that is coming because I’ve already heard the sound of abundance – they will say, well the money has come let me spend it and before they know it they will destroy themselves with the way they spend it. You must be ready to be a wise steward of the money that is coming your way.

 

Now before we pray, because we are about to pray now. I’ve been speaking to you now for more than two and half hours so we should get ready to pray. There is one important thing we must notice in the story we read in 1 King. Before the rain fell, fire fell first. You know the story very well. Elijah put a sacrifice on the altar, called on God, said, “The God that answereth by fire let him be God.” And fire came. I studied the Scripture. I found that there are seven occasions fire came down from heaven apart from the time when Elijah decided to roast his enemies and that is not the one we are discussing tonight. There are seven cases in the Bible when fire came down from heaven and it was always to consume a sacrifice. I will give you the passages quickly and then it will be time to go and pray.

 

Number one, Lev.9:15-24 that is when Moses offered a sacrifice to God and fire came down and consumed it.

Number two, Judg.6:11-21 that is when Gideon offered his offering to God.

Number three, Judg.13:17-20 when Manoah offered his offering to God

Number four, 1 Chro.21:14-27 that is when David offered his offering to God.

Number five, 2 Chro.7:1-3, that is when Solomon offered his offering to God

And then number 6, 1 Kings 18:38 that’s when Elijah offered his own offering to God

And number seven is Acts 2:1-4 that’s when the disciples offered themselves to God and the Holy Ghost came down and the fire lighted upon every one of them.

 

Every one who is expecting the rain of abundance must first of all put himself or herself on the altar as a sacrifice unto God. I surrender all – anything you give me, anything you make me, You can have it for Your use. It is such people that God will say, “Alright I will send down fire of the Holy Spirit to take the offering and then I will send down abundance upon the fellow.”

 

There are many of us who had been Christians for years and there is nothing we are doing in the church of God. We are not in the workers, we are not in the choir we are not in the ushers, we are not in the prayer warriors, we are not in the evangelism team, we are not in the fellowship team. What are you? And now you want abundance! The fire must fall on a sacrifice before the abundance will come. And after you have now made up your mind – I will be a living sacrifice – you can then go ahead and prove to God that you mean business by giving Him a special sacrificial offering. You can say to the Almighty God, “Just see what I will do when You have given me the abundance. Let me give you a sample of what I will do when You have given me the abundance!” Then you can pick something that is precious to you and say, “God I offer this to You as a sacrifice.” And Almighty God will receive your offering and abundance will come. So let me quickly repeat what I have said because of the importance of tonight.

 

If you are going to have abundance the first thing is you hear it. Either you hear it directly from God or you hear through His prophet. After you hear it, you understand it, After you’ve understood it, you receive by faith. After you receive by faith, you proclaim with your mouth. After you have proclaimed then you will work for it, you get ready for hard work, After you have made up your mind you will work hard, then you will pray for abundance and before you pray for abundance you must understand that the fire must precede the rain. You must dedicate yourself to the Almighty God completely because God will only release His abundance to people He can control. And after you’ve made up your mind, I will be a living sacrifice, then you can give God a token of your dedication to show Him, God you try me and see what this boy or this girl will do.

 

Now of course the preacher before me had covered some points that I thought that there’s no need to cover. And one of the crucial points he mentioned is this – anyone who is ready for abundance must be ready for the life of holiness! Oh if you want to pray and you want God to hear you, you have to be holy. The Bible says, if I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear me and God is going to hear you tonight! I didn’t hear ‘Amen’ to that one! (Amen!) That is one.

 

Anyone who is here who is not yet born again, before we even begin to cry to God for abundance, come and surrender your life to Jesus. Let Him save your soul! Let Him wash away your sin. When there is no more iniquity in your life, when your sins have been forgiven then you can cry to God and He will hear you and then He can send abundance to you. So if you are here and you are not yet born again and you want to surrender your life to Jesus so that He can forgive you and save your soul, you must begin to come now. I will count only up to ten because the rest of us are ready to pray now so if you want to give your life to Jesus begin to come now 1……….2……..3…….4…The Bible says the wages of sin is death, that includes financial death, it includes financial death, it includes sickness, it includes poverty but the gift of God is eternal life. Jesus said, “I have come that you may have life and have it more abundantly.” Come and give your life to Jesus Christ now….5………6 There is a day for salvation. This is the day for somebody. 7 now… If you know you want to come, you have to move. The choice is yours. God won’t force you to be saved but if you are not saved then you continue with your problems. It is only after He has saved your soul that He can begin to hear your prayers. It is only then that things can begin to change. 8 now…. He says come unto me all you that labour and are heavy-laden and I will give you rest – but you have to come to Him first. If you want an end to all your sufferings, if you want an end to all your labouring, if you want an end to working like an elephant and eating like a rat, you have to give your life to Jesus Christ first. He said come unto me all you that labour and I will give you rest. 8 now……..this is going to be the final count. Before it is too late if you want to give your life to Jesus run up here now and now 9……..Once I reach ten it may be too late!

 

Now those of you who have already come forward, begin to talk to the Almighty God – say, “I’ve come to surrender, my life to You. Save my soul! Forgive my sins and I will serve You for the rest of my life. Be the Lord of my life! Be my Saviour! Forgive everything that can stand between me and the answer to my prayers!” Begin to call on the Almighty God!

 

The rest of us let’s stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them –that the One who saved our souls, will save their own soul also. Please pray for them! Brethren open your mouth and pray for these people! Pray that the Almighty God, the Saviour of mankind will be merciful unto these people and save their souls.Those of you in front begin to pray! Ask the Lord to have mercy on you and those of you who are still coming – hurry up! I know some of you are coming from a distance but please hurry up! Call on the Almighty God that he will save your soul tonight! Ask him to be merciful unto you! Brethren let’s stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them for another one minute that God will be merciful unto them and save their souls and forgive all their sins. Pray for them brethren! Ask the One who saved your own soul to save them too. That His Blood will cleanse them from all their sins! Pray for them! Pray for them! Oh Thank You Father! For another thirty seconds let’s pray for them.

 

Father we want to thank You for all these Your people who have come forward to give their lives to You. Please remember Your promise Lord that whosoever will come to You, You will in no wise cast out. These people have come now. Receive them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Be merciful unto them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Forgive their sins in Jesus name! (Amen!) Wash away all their sins in Your Blood in Jesus name! (Amen!) Save their souls and write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus name! (Amen!) From today when they cry unto You, answer them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

Now those of you who are in the front let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia’ (Alleluia!) I want to rejoice with you because right now there is joy in heaven over you and I want to promise you from today, by the grace of God, I will be praying for you. So I will need your names, your addresses and your prayer requests and then I will be praying for you. If you look at my left, which is your right, there is a brother waving a piece of wood. Follow him, he will take you where there are Pastors waiting. They will take this information and then bring you back. You can begin to go now. Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause!

 

We’ll do two things quickly. Number one. Those who have special testimonies they can move to the back of the altar now, to go and see the people who will listen to their testimonies and then number two I want you to meditate on what you have already heard – abundance is coming your way. I didn’t hear ‘Amen’ to that! (Amen!) Meditate for a minute. What will I really do with abundance? And then pray a prayer. Say, “Father, if You are going to bless just ten people here tonight, let me be one of them.” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! “Even if there are only ten people that You mean this abundance for tonight, let me be one of them.” Talk to the Almighty God. It will be you, with the backing of all men of God present here tonight. So please Pastors let’s take our positions and all of us, we want to pray just for a few minutes. We want you to be hot, we want to be smart. We want the fire to fall and we want rain to begin to fall. Remember what I told you last month – Jesus never said to anyone, “Come back tomorrow.” So I don’t know about you, but I’m going to get my miracle today.

 

I want you to stand on your feet and as usual our first prayer is a shout of praise to God. Let somebody shout a big ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Thank You Father! Blessed be Your name Lord! Glory, Glory, Glory, Glory be to Your Holy name Lord! Thank You Jesus! Alleluia! Thank You Lord! Amen!

 

And now you will lift your voice to the Almighty. I want you to pray these prayers with all your heart – and say, “Father open my ears, let me hear the sound of abundance!” Go ahead, talk to the Almighty, “Father, open my ears, Let me begin to hear the sound of abundance! Open my ears! O Lord let me hear the sound of abundance! Let me begin to hear the sound of abundance! Open my ears, open my ears oh Lord!” (Amen!)

 

You say, “Father, the faith to receive, give to me tonight!” Let’s talk to the Almighty God! The faith to receive, give it to me tonight, give it to me tonight! The faith to receive, to receive abundance from You, give it to me tonight Father, give it to me, give it to me tonight! Let it lose it’s head tonight! I am proclaiming it now loud and clear! Every Goliath that will stand between me and abundance lose your head tonight in the mighty, in the mighty name of Jesus! You lose your head, you lose your head! Thank You Father! Glory be to God! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

The Lord says there is someone here, between you and a mountain or that a mountain is standing between you and your abundance He asked me to ask you, “Now move that mountain! Command: mountain move in the mighty name of Jesus! Mountain move out of my way! Mountain of doubt, mountain of sickness, mountain of poverty, mountain of joblessness move now! Move now! Mountain of problem standing between me and my abundance in the mighty name of Jesus move now! Whether it’s a political mountain or a spiritual mountain move! move! I command you in the mighty name of Jesus Christ move now! Move now in the mighty name of Jesus! Mountain move, move!”

 

Then you say, “Father, you say whatsoever I ask for in the name of Jesus shall be given to me. Now I ask for abundance, supernatural abundance, a kind of abundance the world has never seen before.” Open your mouth and ask for abundance! In the mighty name of Jesus I ask for abundance, the kind of abundance the world has never seen before! Give me abundance, Lord! Give me abundance, Lord! The kind of abundance the world has never seen before! In Jesus name we pray! (Amen!)

 

Before you pray your own personal prayer I want to encourage you pray this one with faith And say, “Father this day let my rain begin to fall.” Talk to the Almighty God! Amen!

 

Now it is time for you to pray your own personal prayer but I want to advise you to include in that private prayer that the Almighty God will send help to you, that God will send help to you from East, from West, from North, from South. Include it in your private prayers. Say, “Lord send help to me.” and then add your own personal prayer to that. Go ahead talk to the Almighty. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

 

Now you are going to pray for your neighbour. The Africans have a saying. They say one rich man among a thousand is the head of the poor ones. If all of us prosper together the work of the Gospel will be far, far easier. Take the hand of your neighbour. Pray for him or her and say, “Father give him abundance.” Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty. “Give to this my brother abundance Lord! Give him abundance, O Lord! Beginning from now, in Your own supernatural way give him abundance O Lord, Give him abundance! Give him abundance in the morning! Give him abundance in the afternoon! Give him abundance in the evening, abundance in every sphere of life! Give him abundance Lord! Abundance for wisdom, abundance for anointing, abundance for health, abundance of open doors. Lord give him abundance, give him abundance all the days of his life! Give him abundance Lord that Your name may be glorified Thank You Father! Glory be to Your name in Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen)

 

Finally I want you to pray for me. Because of the Law of harvest, whatsoever you sow, that is what you reap. Whatever you wish yourself, go ahead pray it for me……..in Jesus name we pray! So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!)

 

It will be well with you! (Amen!) Beginning from today your rain of blessing will begin to fall! (Amen!) Every Goliath in your way will lose his head in Jesus name! (Amen!) That mountain between you and abundance has been removed in Jesus name! (Amen!) Wherever you go blessings will pursue you! (Amen!) Blessing will overtake you! (Amen!) Unusual favour will be your portion! (Amen!) The Almighty God himself will embarrass you with blessing. (Amen!) All your mockers are already silenced! (Amen!) It shall be well with you! (Amen!) In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!) If you receive that let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Put your hands together for the Almighty God. And then you maybe seated thank you very much.

 

We have one or two things to do and then we will be on our way…..

 

The Lord revealed himself to me that He’s going to use me to uproot some evil power in my foundation so when I started the work I later discover that my father was involved. He was the one that placed a curse of slavery upon me. In the process the Lord delivered me. He tried to come around to terminate my life and the thing back-fired. But before then I was raped in my dream. Since I was raped almost a month ago I discovered that my organ will go and come back. There was no life after sometime and the thing started to shrink and it was revealed also that the curse was sustained by my step-mother. The organ that has been shrinking is back to normal now. Praise the Lord!

 

Praise the Lord! My name is Gbenga Francis Olusegun. My testimony today goes this way. I have kidney failure for long and ever since then I’ve been going on dialysis – that is they use machine to pass out my urination. I have done six different dialysis. I am supposed to go for the seventh one yesterday before I have to take it within myself that no, this time around its enough because of the expenses so I have to come to God Almighty for healing and right now I have gotten the healing! Had it been you could see it very well, you see that my legs are swollen – it was as a result of the urination which I ought to have gone for but because I did not go for it that is why you see the sign of swollen. But before I cannot walk but now I can walk due to the fact that I am healed. God bless us all.

 

Praise the Lord! My name is Ugochukwu Kalu I am giving this testimony to the glory of God and to the total shame of the devil. For the past three months I have been receiving some series of attack. I can’t be able to know the source of the attack but yesterday I receive my healing. I used to receive a kind of presence anywhere I go, all round Lagos, anywhere I go, any place I enter I will receive a demonic presence and that presence, it will be turning my brain. It will look as if I want to run mad. So at times I will lay down and pray and ask God what is the cause of all this problem? I don’t know what is the source? Even when I came to the Camp I felt the same presence, so yesterday was Thursday praise and worship. I said God I am coming to this place to worship You tonight. If You heal me, I will continue to praise You all the days of my life so when I stepped into this place yesterday the thing persisted. You know it was so serious – even more than ever before so I started to worship God during the praise worship. I keep on worshipping God and dancing to God…. before I know it I couldn’t be able to feel the pain again even up till now I couldn’t believe up till today the pain is no more there. I have received my healing. Praise the Lord! The back pain I use to have, in my brain the symptoms of madness I used to have in my brain I am no more having it again. I am free now…., my body is very, very cool now! Praise the Lord!

 

Praise the Lord! On Sunday last week my four year old daughter was kidnapped inside the church at Redeemed Christian Church of God, Salvation Centre, G. R. A., Ikeja. Just immediately after the service. I thank the Lord Almighty that intervened concerning this girl. The woman that kidnapped her returned her back on Monday morning. The girl did not eat food in her house and she was able to trace all the three places they took her to and she said that in one of the places there is this baby like a teddy bear – that’s how she can describe it – that the teddy bear baby was beating her and, she started beating the teddy bear back. She did not cry and the teddy bear baby did not cry. I thank the Lord Almighty that destroyed every power of the enemy concerning the child. Praise the Lord!

 

Now if it was your daughter that got missing or if it is your husband’s organ that disappear and reappear, if you are the one feeling pepper in your brain and if you are the one who had to use machine before you can urinate and God set you free I’m sure you will even praise Him more than you are doing! I’m sure you will really praise Him with all your heart.

Let somebody shout a big Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

At the end of it all, take all glory! And give us all the blessing! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) when I say ‘Shout’ I mean shout! (Alleluia!) I want you to shake hands with about seven people and tell them “Tonight is my night of wonders – my own night of wonders. My own night of wonders! Glory be to God! You can go ahead and give a big round of applause. God bless you, you may be seated!

Tonight we want to talk briefly on the God of wonders. And then we are going to pray. Alright

Isaiah 9:6 Unto us a child is born, unto a child is given and the government shall be upon His shoulder and His name shall be called wonderful, His name shall be called ‘wonderful’. The word ‘wonderful’ is a combination of two words. A combination of ‘wonder’ and ‘full’ It’s a combination of wonders and full. So wonderful means “full of wonders” and His name shall be called Wonderful.

In Ex.3:13-14 Moses asked the Lord, “What is Your name?” and God answered and said, “I am that I am.” In other words, He says, “I am whatever you say I am. Whatever you say I am that is what I will be unto you.” And I’m saying to the Almighty God today – You are a wonder to me. You are wonderful!

When we talk about God being a God of wonders we want to look at it in various aspects.

Number one God himself is a wonder. Everything about God is a wonder. Take His size for example. In 2 Chr.6:18 the Bible says the heaven of heavens cannot contain Him. Imagine someone so big that the Heaven of Heavens cannot contain and yet He lives inside a man. I know He lives inside me because in 1 John 4:4 the Bible says, “Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.” Who is in You? The One whose name is wonderful. So tell your neighbour, “There is a wonder inside of me.”

And then think about His nature. In 1 John 4:8 the Bible says, God is love. When we think about love, we think of embrace, we think of kiss, we think of patting one another. God is love but in Heb.12:29 the Bible says, God is a consuming fire. How do you embrace fire? Yet that is God. He’s love and consuming fire. He’s the Lamb, who at the same time is a Lion according to Rev. 5:1-9

And then let’s think about His stature. Psalm 91:1 It says He’s the Most High – higher than the highest, According to Eccl.5:8 it says he is higher than the highest.

Thank You Father. Somebody is receiving healing for pain.

And so when we talk about somebody who is the Most High, that should be somebody that everyone else must respect, who will respect nobody because He’s the Most High. But in the case of God, even though He’s the Most High, the Bible says He respects the humble. According to Psalm 138:6 God respects the humble.

Let’s talk about His power, power, power. Psalm 91:1, the Bible calls Him the Almighty, the Almighty. In fact He himself said it in Psalm 62:11. The Bible says God has spoken once, twice have I heard it that power belongs to God. In other words, God himself stood up and said, with his chest pushed out, He said power belongs to me and nobody could challenge Him. He’s the most powerful. The Bible calls him the Commander-in-chief of the Host of Heaven. He calls Him the Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. He calls him King of Glory. He calls Him the One who speaks and it’s done. He’s the one who said, let there be light and there was light. That’s how mighty He is and yet in Isaiah 45:11 He said, “Concerning the works of my hand command ye me.” The Almighty, Commander-in-Chief of the Hosts of Heaven says, any of you interested can command me. God is a wonder!

Thank You Father! There is a woman here, you have very deep pain underneath your breast, The pain is gone now. It won’t return.

Let’s think of the location of God. In 1 Tim.1:17 the Bible calls him the King eternal, immortal, invisible the God that cannot be seen. Where is your location oh Lord? Oh we know heaven is Your throne. We know the earth is your footstool but where are You? Invisible and yet He said in Pro.8:17, He said I love them that love me. They that seek me early shall find me. Somebody will find God today.

So God is a wonder which ever way you talk about Him. He’s a wonder in size, His nature, His stature, His power and location everything about Him is a wonder. How do you think of somebody who created all things and He himself was not created? The Bible says in the beginning God created heaven and earth? How do you understand somebody who has no beginning, who has no end? Because the beginning and the end coincide in Him. How do you understand somebody who said I am the Alpha and Omega? How do you understand somebody who never grows old? God is a wonder and he’s going to surprise somebody here today! I say He will surprise somebody here today!

Now not only is He a wonder, He does wonders. Which will be easy to understand because whatever you are is usually determined by what you do. When we say somebody is a carpenter it is because the person does carpentry. When we call somebody a teacher, it is because he does teaching. When we call somebody a ruler it’s because he rules. So when we call God a wonder, it’s because He’s doing wonders and He’s going to do wonders in the life of somebody here tonight! (Amen!) Tell your neighbour he’s talking about me now. It’s in my life that the wonder is going to begin tonight.

Ex.15:11 said, Who is like unto you oh Lord, among the gods who is like thee? Glorious in holiness, fearful in praises doing wonders? In Daniel 6:25-27 ……………….

Thank You Father! Oh the Lord said there is somebody here, you came here tonight, thinking that you have failed. The Lord asked me to tell you, not really. You are just about to go into a new level of success (Amen!) A new level of success! Whoever that one is should really shout a big Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

In Daniel 6 an idol worshiper gave a testimony about our God. Daniel 6:25-27 Then king Daniel wrote unto all people, nation and languages that dwell in all the earth that peace be multiplied unto you. I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel because he’s the living God and steadfast forever and his kingdom that shall not be destroyed and his dominion shall be even unto the end. He delivereth and rescueth and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth” and you will be the next one to receive that one in Jesus name! (Amen!) And then let’s just look at some of the ways he does wonders.

First he performs wonders with the land  He took ordinary dust, moulded it, breathed into it and ordinary dust became a man. That’s Gen.2:7. I mean God just looked at ordinary dust and said let me perform a wonder and He moulded it into the shape of a man and breathed into it and it became a man. You should know that you are a wonder. I mean you, you yourself, coming from ordinary dust with the breath of the Almighty God. That is why David said I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Tell your neighbour, “I am a wonder!” say it loud and clear!

Do you know that the best computer in the world is less than ten percent  as good as your brain? Your brain is 10 times better than the fastest computer that had ever been made! Now scientists have spent years to get to where they are and yet my God just took a little bit of dust, moulded it, breathed into it and it became a living man. And that’s why when the doctor spends months examining your body and they still don’t even know what is wrong with you, my Father will just send a word, just one word. He sent his word and he healed them and delivered them from all their destruction. Let me hear somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Last Friday at the Holy Ghost service in Abuja, God said, somebody is getting a blood transfusion. That everything that is wrong with the blood is gone. Just like that. That was Friday. On Saturday I came back to Lagos. Monday morning I went back to Abuja for another programme and as I wanted  to visit somebody in hospital to pray for him as I entered the hospital there was a woman, young lady with tears in her eyes and a report in her hand. On Friday she came to the Holy Ghost Service as SS. Now the blood is reading AA! How? The wonder breathed into her, that wonder that wonder–working God, He’s going to breathe into someone tonight! (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you say Amen! (Amen!)

In John 9:1-7 the Bible says Jesus was passing by and saw a man who had been blind from birth and the disciple said, Lord who sinned that this man was born blind? Himself or the parents? He said, “No this wasn’t a matter of sin, It’s just so that I can show you, how I made you. This man came into the world, he was in a hurry, He didn’t wait for eyes. He said, “So I want to show you how to correct that. He spit to the ground. Made some mud out of it and put the mud where the eyes were supposed to be and told the man to go and wash. He went. He washed. He came back seeing. Ah! I’ve told you before. God has your spare parts. I want you to tap the ground with your feet – very gently, very gently and  say it loud and clear! “Ground listen to the word of God. Any spare part that I need, supply now!” If you believe that say, ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

He works wonders with the land. Do you know that it is a wonder how the seed that you sow becomes a harvest. You sow just one corn. When it is time to harvest, how many corns do you get? How does a corn going into the soil multiply itself? The Bible said in 1 Cor.3:6 It says, Paul may plant, Apollo may water but there’s a God of wonders who gives increase. From tonight onwards, anytime you plant there shall be increase! (Amen!) I say anytime you sow there will be an increase! (Amen!)

The Lord say there is someone here you have a thing as if somebody is tapping you by the back of the head. He said, the thing is gone and it will never return. (Amen!)

Then there are other kinds of wonders God performs with the land. In Num. 16:13-34 the Bible tells us the story – one day some young men gathered themselves together against the anointed of God and they said, “Moses, are you the only one anointed? How come you have turned the nation of Israel to your family business? You are the prophet. Aaron your brother is the priest and Mariam your sister is the choir mistress. Who told you that we too cannot hear from God?” “Ah!” Moses said, “I didn’t choose myself! I didn’t call myself.” They said, “We didn’t want to know, we are going to remove you from position.” Moses said, “That’s no problem, let’s refer the case to the one who called me.” And God said, “Just tell those who are on your side to come to your side. Those who are on the side of the enemy let them go to their side. I will show them that I can perform wonders on land. Then ask the ground to open its mouth and swallow these people and close it’s mouth as if nothing has happened.” Every sickness in your body, every pain, tonight the ground is going to swallow them up! (Amen!)

Unlike the case I shared with you earlier on in Acts 16:25-26 the Almighty God told the ground to shake. You see some enemy thought that they have already got God’s children chained, that they shut the door against them so that they can never escape. God said, I don’t need keys all I need to do is to get the earth to shake and the ground began to shake and it shook sufficiently till every door was flung open and every yoke was broken! Tonight, the ground is going to shake for somebody. (Amen!) I said there will be an earthquake for someone! (Amen!) Prison doors will open! (Amen!) and yokes shall be destroyed! (Amen!)

So He performs wonders on  land. And then He performs wonders with water. In Gen.1:20-21 God spoke to water. He said, bring forth and it brought forth abundantly. You know He didn’t waste His time creating a fish and then creating this, He just said to water, “Water bring forth!” Every miracle you need, God will speak the word and they will come forth. I said they will come forth! He performed wonders with water. In John 2:1-11 He spoke to water and it became wine. You know the story very well.

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here, there is a pain like a fire in your lower abdomen. He said the fire as been put out. The pain is gone never to return!

There was a wedding in Cana of Galilee and they ran out of wine and they now found themselves facing shame, finding themselves looking at defeat, reproach, all kinds of horrible things. My Father spoke to water and the water became wine. The shame changed to glory, defeat became victory which is exactly what is going to happen to somebody here tonight! And at the end, just like the first preacher said, the end came better than the beginning. Let me prophesy to somebody here tonight, the end of this year is going to be better than the beginning for you. (Amen!) And the end of your life is going to be better than the beginning of your life. (Amen!)

When he spoke to water and it became wine, what He actually did is He accelerated a miracle because water normally when it goes to a tree like orange it will become a kind of wine. Then God decided to accelerate…….. Your miracle shall be accelerated tonight (Amen!) I say your miracle shall be accelerated tonight! (Amen!)

He spoke to the Red Sea and the Red Sea produced a highway. You know the story. Ex.14:21-22, Therefore tonight, whatever is the Red Sea blocking your way to progress it shall hear the voice of Lord, and there will be a way where there is no way before, in Jesus name! (Amen!) And then of course He spoke again to the Red Sea and it came together and drowned the enemy of Israel. All those who have been pursuing you, who say you will not reach your goal, God will speak to the Red Sea and the pursuers shall be pursued.

I don’t know if you have ever heard the testimony of some missionary in a Communist country. They wanted to kill them and they were running from them. Suddenly they came to a river, very big river that had been flooded. Those who were pursuing them, deliberately were pursuing them towards that river, knowing that that’s where they will catch them. When the missionaries got to the river, they lifted up their eyes to the Almighty God. They said, “God, You opened the way in the Red Sea before Your children. Do it again!” And they heard the spirit of God saying, “Go ahead!” So they began to walk in and as they began to go, they suddenly discovered that there was a bridge under the river. So they kept on walking. But when those who were pursuing them came, they said, “We didn’t know that there is a shallow section here! So they followed them. And  God allowed them to follow until they got to the middle and then God removed His bridge. The missionaries were saved. Those who were pursuing them began to drink water. Those who say you will not see the New Year, they are in for a surprise I say they are in for a surprise.

In Matt.14:22-32 Jesus Christ told His disciples, He said, “Go ahead, I will come and join you. I want to go and pray first.” He went. He prayed and because He enjoy praying, He forgot time. By the time He came, all the boats were gone but He had promised that He will come and meet them. So He just stepped on water and began to walk on water to fulfil His promise. Whatever He has to do to fulfil His promise in your life, He will do it tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) Then He performs wonders with the wind. Like I told you earlier on it is the wind from his nostrils that changed us to a man and we all know the story in Eze.37:1-10 It was his wind that blew on dry bones that they became an army again. Tonight the wind of God is going to blow and dry bones will live again. I didn’t hear your ‘Amen’ to that. (Amen!)

The Lord said there is someone here, your palm is usually unusually hot. Anybody who shakes hands with you will quickly withdraw his hand. The Lord asked me to tell you, He has solved that problem, He has solved the problem.

The Bible says in Mark 4:35-41 It tells us a story. The disciples and the Lord were in the boat. He was sleeping and there was a storm and the boat became full of water. And they woke Him up and said, “Don’t You care that we perish?” “What is the trouble? Can’t you see the storm?” He said, (I’m sure he must have yawned) “Oh peace, be still!” And immediately, immediately all was still. Every storm in your life shall be stilled tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) One word from Him. So when He spoke to the wind, the wind needs to obey because He made the wind. When He spoke to the sea, the sea Had to obey because He made the sea. He didn’t swear at the sea. What manner of man is this, that the sea and wind obey him? The Bible said they were afraid. I’ve said it before, when the miracle is a real kind of miracle even the recipient will become afraid. The kind of miracle that frightens you, you are going to get one tonight! (Amen!)

Some years ago I went to hold a programme for one of my sons in the North and in the afternoon we were just talking about the wind storm that they normally get there, that when the storm comes, the wind from the desert will become very big, the sand will cover everything. Suddenly, even in the afternoon everything will become dark. He said, whenever that happens if you are in the house, stay in the house. If you are outside run inside. If you are in a car, park your car and stay there. He said that’s how to survive. So I said, I see. And then in the evening, we were holding the programme outside because the people who came were far too many for the little church and suddenly the wind arose and before you knew it, by the time you move towards your right you couldn’t see anything other than several storey buildings. On your left the same thing. In front, the same thing and everybody began to panic. Suddenly I heard my Father say to me, “Stretch your hand and say, “Peace”. And immediately, immediately the wind stopped, the sand collapsed and we had a wonderful programme. Tonight, on behalf of my Father, I am stretching my hand to all of you and I am saying, ‘Peace’ I say, ‘Peace!’ and then I say, ‘Peace’ and I say, ‘Peace’. There will be Peace in Jesus name! (Amen!)

He performs wonders with fire. Psalm 68:1-3 It says, let God arise and his enemies be scattered. And then He’s telling you why His enemy must scatter whenever God arises, The reason is the fire goes before him, fire goes before Him. In other words the despatch rider of the Most High is fire. Whenever God is going somewhere there is a fire that is going  ahead of Him. What is the purpose of that fire? To cleanse the front. Anything that is not of God that’s in front, the fire will go ahead and consume. Whatever is in your life that is not of God, the fire of God will consume it tonight.

And one of the reasons why I liked Elijah is because he knows how to deal with his enemies. In 2 King 1:9-12 Elijah was sitting on a hill praying to God, having time with the Most High and then suddenly one king decided that he wanted to arrest him. And the soldiers came. Because they had swords and spears they thought they can kill the man of God anyhow. So they said, “Man of God come down, You are under arrest.” He said, “Me?” They said, “Yes.” “You are talking to me?” They said, “Yes.” “And you know that I’m a man of God?” “You said it with your own mouth.” He said, “If I am a man of God, I hereby command that all of you become blind. “Every demon that is trying to arrest you, every evil covenant, every curse from your generation, the fire of God will consume  them now! (Amen!)

But the story that I love most about God performing wonders with fire

Thank You Father! God is healing somebody with bone problem. He said there is someone, it’s as if there are holes in your bones. The bones have been healed right now. (Amen!)

In 1 King 18:36-40 God answered the prayer of Elijah by fire. He will answer your prayer by fire tonight! (Amen!) And in answering that prayer by fire, the fire consumed the offering. Which means He accepted the offering of Elijah. All your offerings will be accepted from tonight onward. (Amen!)  You see the fire does more than that, it also consumed the wood. There is a very important point there. There are many wood that can never become fire. They will live and die, never becoming fire, That means there are many people who will never fully achieve their potential. What God wants them to become, they will never become it before they die. Because this fire fell on the wood it became fire – it fulfilled the purpose for which it was created. Because the fire of  God is going to fall tonight, the purpose for which God created you shall be fulfilled. (Amen!) And then the fire consumed the rock, If real fire can consume rock and you know what rock stands for. In Africa when somebody is poor and comes from a very poor background, when poverty is the history of their generation, they always say this is somebody from a rocky town. Whatever poverty that has been in your generation the fire of God is going to take care of that tonight! (Amen!)

Then the fire licked up the water. Wonder of wonders! Water is supposed to put out fire but when God wants to perform wonders with fire He will use the fire to lick up the water and what does that mean?  It means God is going to change every law in order to be able to wipe away all tears from your eyes. I said he will change all the laws. If you say you are already too old to marry, He will make you younger. If you say you are too old to have children, He will make you younger! If they say your faith is already finished, God will say, I’ve just started. One thing I know, there is somebody here tonight who will never weep again. If you are that one let me hear you say ‘Amen’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

And the fire consumed the dust. It consumed the offering, it consumed the wood, consumed the rock, licked up the water and went ahead and kept on eating even the soil. Everything that is trying to pull you into the ground, that weakness in your body, immoral thoughts, everything that is contrary to the heavenly goal shall be consumed by fire in Jesus name! (Amen!)

So He performed wonders with land, with water, with wind, with fire……..what about wonders or let me give you one example. I heard a story, true story, of a child of God whose house was in a street of houses. There were fifteen houses next to one another and then there was a fire outbreak. It started from house one and came to house two and then to house three and then to house four and this child of God is house was house no 8.  So she ran out – “Lord stop the fire! Stop the fire! You know I don’t have the money to build another house!” The fire kept coming. House four, house five, house six, house seven and then the fire jumped to house nine, house ten, house eleven, house twelve, thirteen, fourteen fifteen. By the time the firemen arrived, out of the fifteen houses only one was standing – house number 8. It doesn’t matter how many houses fire may destroy, your own is not going to burn. (Amen!) I say your own is not going to burn! (Amen!)

He performs wonders with animals. He can command lions to eat or not to eat. You know the story. In Daniel 6

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is somebody here tonight, the one pursuing you is going to receive a shocking news that will keep him busy for the rest of the year and he will forget about you completely.

Daniel 6:16-24 You know the story. They threw Daniel into the lion’s den and the lions saw him coming and they thought this is good food but God said, “No you can’t eat this one because he’s a lion too!” But they said, “No, this is a human lion!” But God said, “No, he’s the son of the Lion of Judah and the son of a lion is a lion!” How many children of the lion of Judah are here tonight? Let me hear you roar like a lion! Glory be to God! You know the rest of the story. The following day, because the lion said, “God we are hungry.” God said, “Don’t worry. I will give you food.” The following morning they brought out Daniel and God told the king, “Send for those who threw Daniel down here. Ask them to come with their wives and their children. They must not leave a relative behind!” Everyone that have been pursuing you, you will not see them again. (Amen!) I say you will not see them again. (Amen!) And when they came, the king said, “Who is this man?” They said “That’s Daniel! We threw him into the den of lions. Has anyone ever gone to the den of the lions and returned alive?” They said, “No.” So the king said, “Something must have happened to my lions. Either somebody stole them or they are all dead. I want you to help me to go and find out. You, your wives and your children – go down and find out what happen to my lions.” Those who wanted to kill you tonight they shall become food for the lions from today. (Amen!)

God performed wonders with animals. In Num.22:22-35 the Bible caused an ass to speak like a human being. God can cause an animal to speak. He can perform wonders with an animal. I can tell you several stories. I can tell you the story of a friend of mine who was sick and everybody thought he was going to die. But he had a dog, a dog that he loved and as he was lying down on his sick bed, the dog was sleeping on the floor by his side. Suddenly the dog saw the angel of death coming for his owner. He jumped up and barked. Apparently the angel of death knocked it on the head and he died. And immediately the owner recovered. That’s one example.

And some of you probably have heard one of my testimonies. When I wanted to visit my sister on the farm, I thought I knew the road but when I got there I saw this one branching to the right, this one branching to the left. I didn’t know which one to take, And as I took one turn, took another turn, I became desperately lost, and I was very young. I don’t know the way back home. I didn’t know the way to my sister’s farm and I didn’t know what to do but all of a sudden I saw a small white dog. And he began to wag his tail as if to say we are friends and he began to move. Something within me just said, “Follow.” And I followed the dog. My sister was so happy to see me! “How could you possibly find your way here? This place is far from home! This road is complicated! How did you find your way?” I said, “I followed that white dog.” And they said, “There is no white dog here.” We searched everywhere – there was no dog. Whatever God is going to use to lead you to your goal, whether a dog or a goat, or a lamb, He will provide you in Jesus name! (Amen!)

He performs wonders with birds. In Ex.16:11-13 when the children of Israel said they wanted meat, God spoke to quails. He told them, I want you to go and soar around the camp of the children of Israel and they surrounded the camp and they did not run when the children of Israel were coming for them! Whatever way God is going to use to meet your needs, He will do it tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

I’m sure many of us know that the most beautiful thing about God performing wonders with birds is found in 1 King 17:2-7. When God spoke to Elijah and said, “I want you to go and sit at the Brook Cherith. I have commanded the ravens to bring you food, to feed you there.” Each time I read this story I get something new. God sent ravens to bring food to His servant. Do you know the birds called ravens? They are notorious for being gluttonous – they know how to eat. When somebody can eat and eat a lot they say he’s ravenously hungry. When you say you are very, very hungry, you want to consume as much food as possible, they use the raven as the adjective to describe your hunger. And yet they are the ones that God used as messengers to carry food to His servant. And they didn’t eat the food on the way and they didn’t miss the address! Your miracle is not going to miss the way (Amen!) Nobody will stop your miracle on the way (Amen!)

God can perform miracles with birds. When we first got here I had a little encounter with birds. There were these little, little birds. Whenever they come on a tree within one day they will remove all the leaves. Suddenly they took over the Camp. They were so many I didn’t know what to do with them. One of the Pastors had a Dane gun. I asked him to come and shoot at them. He will just shoot into their midst. Dozens of them will fall down dead because they were so many but it looks as if when he killed about a dozen, it looks as if a hundred of them will come and take the position. “God what am I going to do? Convention is coming. Am I going to….. what am I going to tell the people – birds can’t allow us to hold the Convention?” So I said, “Father help!” Let somebody shout, “Lord help me!” Say it one more time! “Lord help me!” That was my cry when I travelled. When I came back the following day, I saw eagles. I don’t know where they came from. There were hundreds of them and they just went and kept on eating these birds. They just went after them, swallowing them, eating them! Within two days those disturbing little birds had been finished. As soon as they finished them, the eagle disappeared. Now every bird of Satan that has surrounded your family, surrounded your home, surrounded your business – the eagles of God will swallow them! (Amen!) Say one more time – “Lord help!”

So He performed wonders with birds. He performs wonders with fish, either to swallow a disobedient child, like the story of Jonah in Jonah 1:13 so that the disobedient child can still be preserved until he will repent. Or as we read in Matt.17:24-27, You can use the mouth of a fish as a bank. You know, anytime we had a special program coming, I always rejoiced with everybody who will participate because I have discovered, for every man there is a fish with your money in it’s mouth. All you need to do is find the fish! So when you have an opportunity to go witnessing, whether you know it or not, you are getting closer and closer to your fish. Among those people that we are going to invite for the Congress for example there is a fish with your money in its mouth. You will catch that fish in Jesus  name! (Amen!) I say you will catch the fish in Jesus name! (Amen)

He performs wonders with fish, He performs wonders with angels and I like that one – either to shut the mouth of lions in Dan.6:22 or to open locked doors and frustrate the enemy as in Acts 5:17-24. The enemy locked Peter and John in Prison. An angel came at night, set them free and told them – go on preaching! When those who locked them in heard that the prison doors were securely locked but when they got inside Peter and John were gone. Somebody said, “Ah! They are already in the church preaching!” The enemies became frustrated. God is going to frustrate your enemy! (Amen!)

The Bible says angels are ministering spirits that are sent to minister to the heirs of salvation. You may not see them but if you are truly born again you have your own bodyguards and they are angels. Human body guards will run when they see them. They are going to say, “I don’t think I want to lose my life because of one man!” But angels, they can’t die and they are around you. The word of God says he will give charge to his angels concerning you, so that wherever you go they will be there to guard you and to protect you. Some of you know the story.

An evangelist went to preach in one town in Ogun State years ago and he was criticizing all the worshipers of a particular idol and so they decided they will kill him. So they announced to him if you come back here to preach tomorrow – you are dead! So the evangelist called those who were ministering with him said, “Tomorrow I am going to preach. Those of you who don’t want to die, you better go.” And those people said “Well, you are the one they want to kill. We will come all the same.” And then the news spread that they were going to kill the evangelist tomorrow. So those who didn’t want to come to the programme came to see how they are going to kill the evangelist and the man preached the sermon of his life – got several souls saved. As soon as he finished preaching six huge men came on the stage, surrounded him, they said, “Come let’s go! “Ah!” everybody said, “Eh they’ve come to kill him!” They took him outside the town and when they got outside the town they told him to go and……And now as you go back to your seats, you and as many of us still have something to ask God, we have called on God to answer us by fire, He’s going to answer us by fire – your individual prayers. Now you can begin to talk to the Lord. Talk to Him as you go back. Those of you on seat, talk to God. From now on wherever you go He will go with you and take care of you.

And then God performed wonders with weather. He can seal the heavens as we found in 1 King 17:1 or He can rain bombs on his enemies from the sky as we find in Joshua 10:8-11. And yet He can open the windows of heaven and give you  a breakthrough, according to Malachi 3:10. He said if you bring all the tithes into his house He said he will open the window of heaven and pour you a blessing that there will be no room enough to receive. He can open the windows of heaven and pour you showers of blessing. So He can perform wonders with the weather. I am believing God that one of the new songs we will sing is that “I am surrounded in showers of blessing.” So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!)

So He can perform wonders with land with wind, with water, with fire, with animal, with birds, with fish, with angels, with weather, I can continue on and on. I can tell you how he can perform wonders with insects, and so on and so forth but the major question is – will He perform wonders for me?  That’s the major question. I believe the answer is ‘Yes’. If you believe so let me hear you also say, “Yes!”  Will He perform wonders for you? You are not sure? If you are sure let your ‘Yes’ show that you are sure. Now, how am I sure He will perform wonders for you? How am I sure? Because he says in His word that you are for signs and wonders. He said all the children He has given me are for signs and wonders. You better say it with your own mouth, “I am for signs and wonders!”

Not only can He perform wonders for you, He can even turn you to wonders to the world. In Acts 3:1-10 when the man who had been lame from birth began to walk leaping, jumping praising God the Bible says, everybody was amazed. There is a miracle coming your way that will turn you to a wonder to the rest of the world. But He can do more than that. He can perform wonders through you. He can use you to perform wonders. If you believe He will use you to perform wonders, say, “Amen!” In Acts 19:11-12, the Bible tells us, God performed special miracles by the hand of Paul, that through his body they took handkerchiefs and aprons to the sick and they were healed and the demons in their body disappeared.

It is that passage in the Bible that I held on to one day when somebody came to me and said my grandmother is sick. They’ve operated on her and because of her age the place they operated refused to heal. So whenever she ate, the food was coming out from the stomach. The people could have sent her home to die but because she came from a wealthy family they kept her in the hospital. So the granddaughter came, “Mama is old if she dies she’s old  enough to die but I don’t want her to die in a messy manner. Let God heal her and then after that if she wants to die she can die.” So I said, “Bring me a handkerchief.” And I prayed over the handkerchief. And she took the handkerchief to the grandmother and they laid it on the grandmother. The following day when they came to check whether Mama is alive or dead, not only was she healed, they couldn’t even find the place where they operated on her! That’s what God of wonders can do!

That’s not all, because you may say well because you are General Overseer that’s why God can do it through you. Sometimes ago we had a programme for Full Gospel Business men fellowship. They had a programme in Port Harcourt and there was a woman there she heard all kind of testimonies that I shared with them and she wanted to come to me. They wouldn’t allow her. The crowd was much. When I got into the car and I was driving away she was able to rub her handkerchief against the car and said – I have got the anointing and she kept the handkerchief. When she got home she discovered that her junior sister had gone mad. Small little thing – six men had to hold her down. She said, “Ah! Don’t worry! I have an handkerchief – give way!” And she laid the handkerchief on the girl and all the demons left her. And everybody looked at her – so you too can perform wonders! Is there anybody here who will go from here performing wonders? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

So God is a wonder He can perform wonders. He can perform wonders for you. He can turn you to a wonder He can perform wonders through you. It’s really up to you. If only you believe. Mark 9:23 If you can believe all things are possible to him that believeth. Do I hear somebody say, “Lord I believe!” Say it loud and clear! Believe and then ask. John 14:14 if you ask anything in my name I will do it. However before you ask there are two kinds of wonders…….

The Lord said there is someone here, you had a dream recently and an angry crowd of people was marching towards you, marching against you. The Lord asked me to tell you, I will meet them half way.

Before you ask – there are two kinds of wonders – good wonders, bad wonders. When God healed Naaman by asking him to go and bath in River Jordan that was a good wonder. When the leprosy was taken from River Jordan and it was put on the body of Gehazi that was a wonder – a bad wonder. When God turned  a mad man to an evangelist in Mark 5:1-20 that was a good wonder. When God turned a king to an animal in Dan. 4:30-33 that was a wonder too – a bad wonder. Now the question is what kind of wonder do you want good or bad? Ah! You better answer! You better let God hear you! What kind of wonder do you want? You see, in Pro.28:13 the word of God says he that conceals a sin shall not prosper but he that confesseth them and forsaketh them shall obtain mercy. There will be wonders here tonight! Wonder are already happening. More wonders are about to happen. But if you are still in your sin, if you refuse to surrender your life to Jesus. If you say I want to continue to live in sin, you too will receive a wonder but it will not be a good wonder. Demons will fly out tonight but as they are flying out, if they discover that you are not already washed in the blood of the Lamb or you claim to be born again and you are still in sin they may change accommodation and take over a new one because this is a night of wonders.

If you are not yet born again, before we call on the God of wonders, come and surrender your life to Him. Once His blood covers you, He promised that when danger is passing by He will see the blood and pass over you. Come and surrender your life to Jesus Christ now! I will count up to ten, if you want to surrender your life to Jesus get here before I say ten. The choice is yours – good wonder or bad wonder the choice is yours 1……..2……..3………4………..5

You have to hurry up. Some of you know you are coming up from a far distance and you have to get here before I say ten. The choice is yours. God of wonders is here. He performs good wonders for his children and bad wonders for his enemies and all those who are yet to surrender their life to Him they qualify as enemies of God. So if you want to give your life to Jesus, come now 6……..7…….

The gates of mercy are still open but they may close very soon. It’s the Lord that is calling you, not men. He’s asking you to make a choice tonight. Are you for Him or are you against Him? The God of wonders is very good friend but He’s a very dangerous enemy. If you want to give your life to Jesus you have to hurry up now 7…….8

I can see many of you coming from a distance but you have to hurry up! And there are some of you who might still be sitting down there and you are not sure of your salvation. Don’t say I did not call you. Don’t say I didn’t give you an opportunity to surrender your life to Jesus! This is the day of salvation If you miss it you may never find another opportunity! and 9!

It’s the last call. Anybody who wants to come, you better come now! And those of us already in front let’s lift our voice to the Almighty God and say, Lord I’ve come to surrender my life to You. Save my soul! Forgive my sin! Give me the wonder of salvation! Let me become a true child of the living God! The grace to forsake sin, give it unto me! Be my Lord! Be my saviour!

The rest of us let’s stretch our hands toward these people and pray for them. The God who saves our soul will their soul also! Pray for them brethren! Intercede for these people that the Saviour will save their souls! Pray for them brethren! Call on the Saviour, that He will save their souls. That today too they will experience the wonder of salvation; that they will become brand new creatures In the mighty name of Jesus pray for them!

And those of you who are still coming hurry up quickly now! Because we want to end the prayer now! Get here before we stop praying! The Lord is calling you now and saying ‘Hurry up!’ This is your last call! Get here before we finish praying! I can still see some of you walking – you better run! This is your day of salvation! God is calling you now! saying hurry up! Hurry up! Hurry up! Hurry up! Come and cry to him and say, “Lord save my soul! Forgive my sins Lord! Be merciful unto me! Cleanse me in Your Blood! Write my name in the Book of Life!” Hurry up those of you who are still coming on the way. And the rest of us let’s pray for these people for another one minute, that the Almighty God will save their souls! Pray with all your hearts! The greatest wonder is the wonder of salvation. Ask God to save the souls of these people. Intercede for them for another thirty seconds pray for them! That today they will also receive their own salvation! Pray for them brethren – that every one of them will receive salvation now! That the Blood of Jesus that cleansed you from your own sin will cleanse them also from their own sin!  Pray for them brethren! And if you are coming, you better come now because we want to close now. We want to round up this session right now! Hurry up those of you who are still on the way! Thank You Father! Glory be to God! Thank You Almighty! In Jesus name we have prayed!

Father we thank You! We thank You because You always hear us. Thank You for Your word that has gone forth today. Thank You for those who have responded. Accept our thanks in Jesus name! Daddy, you said if any man will come unto me I will no wise cast him out. They have come to You now. Receive them in Jesus name! Forgive them in Jesus name! Cleanse them in Your Blood in Jesus name! Write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus name! And from today Lord let them begin to do Your will! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! Amen!

Now those of you in front let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) I want to promise you that right now even as the angels are rejoicing in heaven over you, those of us here are also rejoicing. Even though they are not showing it yet but they are rejoicing. I can see some of them clapping because they are rejoicing with you that in one single day seven wonders can happen. Let me tell you the truth it can even be more. God brought you here tonight to give you unlimited wonders. Do you believe that? Let’s stand on our feet. If you believe that this really is your night, I want you to first of all lift up your hands to the Almighty God and just begin to thank Him in advance for the marvellous things He’s about to do in your life. Talk to the Almighty God! Praise Him for what He’s about to do in your life!………..I believe. Yes Lord, I believe, Yes Lord  I believe it is well with me………If you believe that shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) God bless you, you may be seated. Very soon we’ll be going to a session of serious prayers but before then we have some visitors with us and we will love to welcome them.

Is anybody ready to pray? The elders have a saying, anybody who wants to get the kernel from palm kernel will have to use a little bit of force. Anybody who wants wonders must be ready to pray for wonders. I want to teach you a song many of you will probably know it. It’s very simple. It says. “Oh, oh Lord, Oh, oh Lord, Oh, oh Lord here we pray today here we pray…………Oluwa, Oluwa, Oluwa………..I want somebody to shout a mighty Alleluia!

Lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, thou God of wonders, let Your wonders begins in my life today! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! “Oh God of wonders, let Your wonders begin in my life today! Let Your wonders begin in my life today! Oh Lord hear me as I pray today. Let Your wonders begin in my life today! Oh Lord hear me as I pray today – let Your wonders begin in my life! Let Your wonders begin in my life! Almighty God of wonders, wonders in my family, wonders in my home, wonders in the life of my children, wonders in my business, wonders in my ministry! Oh Lord of wonders perform wonders in my life today! Perform wonders! Perform wonders! Oh Lord here me as I pray today! You are the One who can answer all my prayers! You are the God of wonders! Oh Lord hear me as I pray! Let Your wonders begin in my life today! Let Your wonders begin in my life today! Let Your wonders begins in my life today! Let Your wonders begin in my life today! Oh God wonder-working God! Let Your wonders begin in my life today! You are the only One who can perform wonders in heaven and on earth! Let Your wonders begins in my life today!

Now we are praying and some are looking around! Eh! Open your mouth and say, “Father! Command my body to reject whatever is not planted by You. Call on the Almighty God! “Father, command all my body to reject every sickness, every disease, every ache, every pain and demon, everything that is not planted by You! Father, command my body! Speak to my flesh! Speak to my body now! Speak to my blood! Speak to my bone! Speak to my marrow! Speak to every bit of me! To reject everything that is not planted by You! Speak to my body now! Almighty God wonder-working God! Command my body to reject everything that is not divine! Command my body to reject whatever is not planted by You! Alleluia! Father! In the mighty name of Jesus!”

May I encourage you one more time. After this you can pray the way you like. It’s up to you. The word of God is clear from the day of John the Baptist, the kingdom of God suffereth violence and the violent have taken it by force. I want you to cry to the Almighty God and say, “Father! Ask the earth to shake loose every prison door that has been shut against my progress!” You go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! “Father in the mighty name of Jesus! Command the earth to shake lose every door that has been closed against my progress! Right now! My Lord and my Savour, command the earth to shake every prison door that has been shut against my progress! In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, shake lose every door, every prison door against my progress – shake them loose! King of glory shake them loose! Right now as I pray let the earth tremble! Let there be an earthquake to shake loose every prison door that has been shut against my progress! Let every yoke, every yoke be broken!” Alleluia!…………Thank You Father! Thank You Lord! Glory be to God! Blessed be the name of the Lord! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Now you are going to command, in the mighty name of Jesus, and say “Earth, earth! Hear the word of the Lord! Open your mouth and swallow all my problems.” Go ahead! Command in the mighty name of Jesus! Earth hear the word of the Lord! Tremble before Your maker! Open your mouth swallow all my problems! I command in the mighty name of Jesus! Earth! Earth! Hear the word of the Lord, tremble before your maker! Open your mouth! Swallow all my problems! Every demon, every evil covenant, every evil plan in my family – earth open your mouth and swallow them all! Swallow them all! swallow them up! Swallow them up! Hear the voice of the Lord O, Earth! I command you in the mighty name of Jesus, Open your mouth – Swallow every bit of my problem today! Right now as I pray! All those problems ganging up against me, trying to frustrate my destiny, trying to frustrate the purpose of God for my life, earth swallow them up! In the mighty name of Jesus, swallow them up! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Father! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! In Jesus mighty name we pray! (Amen!)

When God wanted to perform a special wonder He will, at times, speak through men. He said to Ezekiel, “Can these bones live?” Ezekiel said, “Lord I don’t know. Only you can tell.” He said, “In any case prophesy! Ask wind to blow on these dry bones and they shall live.” I want you to prophesy with your own mouth and command the wind to come from the East, from the West, from the North, from the South to blow on you, that your dry bones may live again! Open your mouth and command in the mighty name of Jesus! “Wind! Blow! In the mighty name of Jesus! From the East, from the West, from North from south! Blow, blow! That my dry bones may live again! Wind blow! In the mighty name of Jesus! Wind I command you to blow! Blow from the East! Blow from the West! Blow from the North! Blow from the South! Wind blow! Let the wind of the Holy Spirit blow on me!  Let my bones live again! Wind blow! Wind blow! Wind blow and let my dry bone live again! Wind blow that every lost hope might be renewed! Wind blow! That blind may see, that the deaf may hear, that the lame may walk, that the barren may become fruitful! Winds blow! In the mighty name of Jesus! Wind blow! That the irreversible might be reversed! Wind blow, blow today! blow right now, blow right now!” Glory be to God! Thank You Father! Blessed be the name of the Lord! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Then you are going to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, “Father turn my water to wine!” Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! He knows what that means, “Lord! Turn my water to wine! Turn my shame to glory! Turn my failure to success! Turn my defeat to triumph! Turn my poverty to success! Lord God Almighty, turn my water to wine in the mighty name of Jesus! In the mighty name of Jesus turn my water to wine! Turn my tears to laughter! Oh Yes, God Almighty, tonight God of wonders turn my water to wine! Turn my water to wine! Turn my water to wine – right now! King of glory turn my water to wine that Your name might be glorified! Turn my water to wine! Right now as I pray turn my water to wine that the world may know that you are the living God! Turn my water to wine!” Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we prayed! (Amen!)

As we are about to pray our next prayer I want all indigenes of Niger Delta to begin to come forward. We want to pray for you after our next prayer point. Now while they are coming, the rest of us let’s lift our voice to the Almighty God and say, “Father, answer my prayer by fire tonight!” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! “Father answer my prayer by fire tonight! Almighty God answer my prayer by fire tonight! King of glory! You are the unchangeable Lord! Answer my prayer by fire tonight! As I call on You tonight, answer my prayer by fire tonight! You are the consuming fire yourself! Answer my prayer by fire tonight!

I want you to use these indigenes of Niger Delta who are here as a point of contact for your various States. When there was constant violence in Ife Modakeke we cried to God here and peace came. We want peace in Niger Delta, We don’t want any more violence, No more poverty! (Amen!) No more bloodshed (Amen!) No more death! (Amen!) No more sorrow! (Amen!) Brethren I want you to join me as we pray for these people. Raise your hands towards them and as they raise their hands towards God and let us decree that in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, in Niger Delta State there will be no more violence, no more death, no more sorrow, no more poverty, no more failure, no more sickness, no more demons. Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God. In the mighty name of Jesus, we stand as one and we call on the Almighty God for our brothers and sisters in Niger Delta and we decree in the Name that’s above every other name that there will be progress, there will be success. There will be no more sorrow, no more death, no more violence, no more evil! That all the bloodsucking demons in Niger Delta will be cast into the sea, never to resurface again! We decree peace, tranquillity progress, joy, victory, abundance! In the mighty name of Jesus the permanent solution to all the problems in Niger Delta! Oh Yes, we pray that beginning from now every intertribal war will end, every conflict will come to an end. There’ll be peace again! There’ll be joy again! There’ll be progress again! There’ll be no more death! There’ll be no more sickness! There’ll be no more sorrow – not again in the mighty name of Jesus! In the mighty name of Jesus! In the mighty name of Jesus! So shall it be! So shall it be! Anyone who says it will not be so God himself will uproot! Thank You my Father!

Lord I stand before You today, as Your representative to these people and as their representative to You and I decree that from now on the Blood that conquered Satan will conquer for Niger Delta! (Amen!) That every demon in Niger Delta will be cast into the sea! (Amen!) In Niger Delta there will be no more sickness! (Amen!)  No more sorrow ! (Amen!) No more violence! (Amen!) No more death! (Amen!) No more poverty! (Amen!) No more failure! (Amen!) in the mighty name of Jesus! (Amen!) There will be peace! (Amen!) There will be success! (Amen!) There will be progress! (Amen!) There will be abundance! (Amen!) There will be joy again! (Amen!) So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!) So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!) Anyone who says it will not be so that fellow shall be uprooted in Jesus name! (Amen!) Anyone who says I don’t want peace in Niger Delta, the fire of God will consume them in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Tell Him now, “Lord God Almighty today do something new in my life, do something great in my life, do something wondrous in my life! Wonder–working God perform wonders in my life today! Perform wonders in my life today! Almighty God today let there be wonders in my life! Wonders in my home, wonders in the life of my family, wonders in Your Church, wonders in Nigeria, wonders in the life of all those who wish me well! Give them good wonders. Those who do not wish me well give them wonders too – wonders that will keep them occupied for the rest of their lives that they won’t bother me anymore! God of wonders, perform wonders in my life today! Do it Almighty God and we will glorify Your name! Thank You my Father! Thank You Lord Jesus! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed!

Thank you ministers of God, I think you are less busy. You can now return to your seat. Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause for the Almighty God, for hard–working ministers of God. God will renew your strength and increase your anointing. Glory be to God! Now I’m aware that there might still be a few dozen people who may still be coming but we have to keep moving.

What is going to happen next month who can tell me? What do you say is it? Alright we have Holy Ghost Congress. That’s correct but, eh, what is it again “A new song!” How many of you will sing a new song? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Now this year’s Congress is going to be different from any one you have ever seen before. (Amen!) Far, far powerful than ever before. People are coming from all over the world. In fact I know a man of God in America who said he’s going to charter a plane so he would bring a hundred people. And then, because if you want a ticket from Europe to Nigeria in December now, you can’t find a seat – all planes are full because people are coming to Holy Ghost Congress. The Lord is good. In addition to the fact that the anointing of God is going to flow like mighty waves of the ocean, we have decided, instead of the afternoon remaining free, we want to put action to our prayers, action to our faith. We have discovered one of our major problems is that we don’t know how to make wealth.

For example there is one man who is a graduate of many years. All he does now is to rear snails and mushrooms in his backyard and he’s making millions. There are little, little things you can do, that can bring in tremendous money but we just don’t know. That will not even touch your normal daily work. So we have decided this year we will bring all these experts to come and teach us how to do small-scale industries, small-scale farming. There are tremendous opportunities in Nigeria that we don’t know about, everybody is waiting for the government. Now by the grace of God very soon we will say the government can take their own policy it doesn’t matter – my mushrooms, people must buy. So that will be in the afternoons Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday the only afternoon that is free is Friday because of the – you know, Friday night. And then Saturday, all afternoon there will be programmes to teach us how to turn little to much.

And we are going to bring experts to talk to our youth on career counselling. For example I know somebody who during his youth corps year, he did so much in addition to being a youth corper that he bought a car. By the time he finished his youth service he was already employing labour. We want our own children to be employers of labour not somebody who will have to apply before they can eat. So all that we are going to handle. We are going to make this practical Christianity in the afternoon. And so we appeal to you to advertise this year’s Congress like you have never done before!

God will bless your offering, He will accept it and use it for His glory and you will never, never want again in Jesus name! (Amen!) From now on whatever you touch will prosper (Amen!) and wonders of abundance will be your portion in Jesus name! (Amen!) So shall it be, in Jesus mighty name we pray! (Amen!) God bless you!

Now let’s take the testimonies quick:

My name is Mrs Oluwatoyin Temitope Ajayi. I’m standing here to give glory to God for what the Lord has done in my life. I give all the glory to God and I return all the praise unto Him because He only is due. I’ve been trusting God for the fruit of the womb after I had my first born in the year 1989, 14 years ago. Nothing happened. But it got to a time my husband was to bring our Daddy in the Lord, the General Overseer, to the Auditorium to listen to the choir as regards the Convention last year and I told my husband, after taking Daddy back to the office I will like to sit at the exact place Daddy sat just to have a prayer and he did. When he took Daddy back to the office I quickly ran into the car and I sat there and said, Father if truly this is Your man and he’s a servant of God and he’s a God-sent man during our own time, let it be unto me according to my faith that by this time (that was July) by July I will like to be here having my baby in my hand, testifying to the goodness of God in my life. And I said that prayer and left. I was to go to London for my profession. On getting to London everything was ok with me but I never knew I was pregnant until November 24th when I was feeling somehow and the doctor said I should go for a scan. On getting there I was told this is your baby’s head, your baby’s hand. I was like, God you can be so merciful! So I  give God all the glory, all the honour and I thank my Father in the Lord for the support he gave to me during pregnancy, he called me several times without number praying with me on the phone. Here I am with the baby Adebayo Iyinoluwa. Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord! My name is Glory Okogie. When Daddy came to Enugu for Divine Involvement, God miraculously healed me from the disease called HIV. Praise the Lord! I have testified in Enugu. A brother advised me to come. But when I came in March to testify the theme then was, “Beginning of greatness.” When I had this problem I don’t normally see my period but after that programme that day God restored my period. Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord! My name is Brother Akin Oluwadare. During the last Holy Ghost night Daddy mentioned my case. I discovered sometimes ago that my genital organ has been increasing in size but God met me and restored me back to normal. Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord! My name is Adewole Makinde, City of David parish, Ilorin, Kwara Province. In July this year my son went to the teaching hospital, Ilorin for sickle cell crisis but when we got there series of tests were conducted upon him. Series of X-ray were taken and so on. Then suddenly we were told he had a hole in the heart and there were perforations and the size of the heart is abnormal and that the heart is completely damaged. They did the tests several times and confirmed at the Teaching Hospital  then we were referred to Bisket Medical Centre, Oshogbo. Not to confirm whether the heart was damaged or not but to determine the extent of the damage and the size of the hole they said they detected at the Teaching Hospital, Ilorin. I decided that I will not go to Bisket Hospital until I had come for the Convention in August. When we came in August I had the rare opportunity of meeting our father in the Lord in his office and Papa took time to go through the hospital document and Papa said this is bad, this is not right thing for a child and I quote Baba, my Father, “This result I cancel in Jesus name and that Father, supply a new heart into Adebayo.” He just said, “Thank you Lord you have supplied it.” Adebayo you have received a new heart.

GLORY BE TO GOD!!!!

At the end of it all, take all glory! And give us all the blessing! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) when I say ‘Shout’ I mean shout! (Alleluia!) I want you to shake hands with about seven people and tell them “Tonight is my night of wonders – my own night of wonders. My own night of wonders! Glory be to God! You can go ahead and give a big round of applause. God bless you, you may be seated!

Tonight we want to talk briefly on the God of wonders. And then we are going to pray. Alright

Isaiah 9:6 Unto us a child is born, unto a child is given and the government shall be upon His shoulder and His name shall be called wonderful, His name shall be called ‘wonderful’. The word ‘wonderful’ is a combination of two words. A combination of ‘wonder’ and ‘full’ It’s a combination of wonders and full. So wonderful means “full of wonders” and His name shall be called Wonderful.

In Ex.3:13-14 Moses asked the Lord, “What is Your name?” and God answered and said, “I am that I am.” In other words, He says, “I am whatever you say I am. Whatever you say I am that is what I will be unto you.” And I’m saying to the Almighty God today – You are a wonder to me. You are wonderful!

When we talk about God being a God of wonders we want to look at it in various aspects.

Number one God himself is a wonder. Everything about God is a wonder. Take His size for example. In 2 Chr.6:18 the Bible says the heaven of heavens cannot contain Him. Imagine someone so big that the Heaven of Heavens cannot contain and yet He lives inside a man. I know He lives inside me because in 1 John 4:4the Bible says, “Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.” Who is in You? The One whose name is wonderful. So tell your neighbour, “There is a wonder inside of me.”

And then think about His nature. In 1 John 4:8 the Bible says, God is love. When we think about love, we think of embrace, we think of kiss, we think of patting one another. God is love but in Heb.12:29 the Bible says, God is a consuming fire. How do you embrace fire? Yet that is God. He’s love and consuming fire. He’s the Lamb, who at the same time is a Lion according to Rev. 5:1-9

And then let’s think about His staturePsalm 91:1 It says He’s the Most High – higher than the highest, According to Eccl.5:8 it says he is higher than the highest.

Thank You Father. Somebody is receiving healing for pain.

And so when we talk about somebody who is the Most High, that should be somebody that everyone else must respect, who will respect nobody because He’s the Most High. But in the case of God, even though He’s the Most High, the Bible says He respects the humble. According to Psalm 138:6 God respects the humble.

Let’s talk about His power, power, power. Psalm 91:1, the Bible calls Him the Almighty, the Almighty. In fact He himself said it in Psalm 62:11. The Bible says God has spoken once, twice have I heard it that power belongs to God. In other words, God himself stood up and said, with his chest pushed out, He said power belongs to me and nobody could challenge Him. He’s the most powerful. The Bible calls him the Commander-in-chief of the Host of Heaven. He calls Him the Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. He calls him King of Glory. He calls Him the One who speaks and it’s done. He’s the one who said, let there be light and there was light. That’s how mighty He is and yet in Isaiah 45:11 He said, “Concerning the works of my hand command ye me.” The Almighty, Commander-in-Chief of the Hosts of Heaven says, any of you interested can command me. God is a wonder!

Thank You Father! There is a woman here, you have very deep pain underneath your breast, The pain is gone now. It won’t return.

Let’s think of the location of God. In 1 Tim.1:17 the Bible calls him the King eternal, immortal, invisible the God that cannot be seen. Where is your location oh Lord? Oh we know heaven is Your throne. We know the earth is your footstool but where are You? Invisible and yet He said in Pro.8:17, He said I love them that love me. They that seek me early shall find me. Somebody will find God today.

So God is a wonder which ever way you talk about Him. He’s a wonder in size, His nature, His stature, His power and location everything about Him is a wonder. How do you think of somebody who created all things and He himself was not created? The Bible says in the beginning God created heaven and earth? How do you understand somebody who has no beginning, who has no end? Because the beginning and the end coincide in Him. How do you understand somebody who said I am the Alpha and Omega? How do you understand somebody who never grows old? God is a wonder and he’s going to surprise somebody here today! I say He will surprise somebody here today!

Now not only is He a wonder, He does wonders. Which will be easy to understand because whatever you are is usually determined by what you do. When we say somebody is a carpenter it is because the person does carpentry. When we call somebody a teacher, it is because he does teaching. When we call somebody a ruler it’s because he rules. So when we call God a wonder, it’s because He’s doing wonders and He’s going to do wonders in the life of somebody here tonight!(Amen!) Tell your neighbour he’s talking about me now. It’s in my life that the wonder is going to begin tonight.

Ex.15:11 said, Who is like unto you oh Lord, among the gods who is like thee? Glorious in holiness, fearful in praises doing wonders? In Daniel 6:25-27 ……………….

Thank You Father! Oh the Lord said there is somebody here, you came here tonight, thinking that you have failed. The Lord asked me to tell you, not really. You are just about to go into a new level of success (Amen!) A new level of success! Whoever that one is should really shout a big Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

In Daniel 6 an idol worshiper gave a testimony about our God. Daniel 6:25-27Then king Daniel wrote unto all people, nation and languages that dwell in all the earth that peace be multiplied unto you. I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel because he’s the living God and steadfast forever and his kingdom that shall not be destroyed and his dominion shall be even unto the end. He delivereth and rescueth and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth” and you will be the next one to receive that one in Jesus name! (Amen!) And then let’s just look at some of the ways he does wonders.

First he performs wonders with the land  He took ordinary dust, moulded it, breathed into it and ordinary dust became a man. That’s Gen.2:7. I mean God just looked at ordinary dust and said let me perform a wonder and He moulded it into the shape of a man and breathed into it and it became a man. You should know that you are a wonder. I mean you, you yourself, coming from ordinary dust with the breath of the Almighty God. That is why David said I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Tell your neighbour, “I am a wonder!” say it loud and clear!

Do you know that the best computer in the world is less than ten percent  as good as your brain? Your brain is 10 times better than the fastest computer that had ever been made! Now scientists have spent years to get to where they are and yet my God just took a little bit of dust, moulded it, breathed into it and it became a living man. And that’s why when the doctor spends months examining your body and they still don’t even know what is wrong with you, my Father will just send a word, just one word. He sent his word and he healed them and delivered them from all their destruction. Let me hear somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Last Friday at the Holy Ghost service in Abuja, God said, somebody is getting a blood transfusion. That everything that is wrong with the blood is gone. Just like that. That was Friday. On Saturday I came back to Lagos. Monday morning I went back to Abuja for another programme and as I wanted  to visit somebody in hospital to pray for him as I entered the hospital there was a woman, young lady with tears in her eyes and a report in her hand. On Friday she came to the Holy Ghost Service as SS. Now the blood is reading AA! How? The wonder breathed into her, that wonder that wonder–working God, He’s going to breathe into someone tonight! (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you say Amen! (Amen!)

In John 9:1-7 the Bible says Jesus was passing by and saw a man who had been blind from birth and the disciple said, Lord who sinned that this man was born blind? Himself or the parents? He said, “No this wasn’t a matter of sin, It’s just so that I can show you, how I made you. This man came into the world, he was in a hurry, He didn’t wait for eyes. He said, “So I want to show you how to correct that. He spit to the ground. Made some mud out of it and put the mud where the eyes were supposed to be and told the man to go and wash. He went. He washed. He came back seeing. Ah! I’ve told you before. God has your spare parts. I want you to tap the ground with your feet – very gently, very gently and  say it loud and clear! “Ground listen to the word of God. Any spare part that I need, supply now!” If you believe that say, ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

He works wonders with the land. Do you know that it is a wonder how the seed that you sow becomes a harvest. You sow just one corn. When it is time to harvest, how many corns do you get? How does a corn going into the soil multiply itself? The Bible said in 1 Cor.3:6 It says, Paul may plant, Apollo may water but there’s a God of wonders who gives increase. From tonight onwards, anytime you plant there shall be increase! (Amen!) I say anytime you sow there will be an increase! (Amen!)

The Lord say there is someone here you have a thing as if somebody is tapping you by the back of the head. He said, the thing is gone and it will never return. (Amen!)

Then there are other kinds of wonders God performs with the land. In Num. 16:13-34 the Bible tells us the story – one day some young men gathered themselves together against the anointed of God and they said, “Moses, are you the only one anointed? How come you have turned the nation of Israel to your family business? You are the prophet. Aaron your brother is the priest and Mariam your sister is the choir mistress. Who told you that we too cannot hear from God?” “Ah!” Moses said, “I didn’t choose myself! I didn’t call myself.” They said, “We didn’t want to know, we are going to remove you from position.” Moses said, “That’s no problem, let’s refer the case to the one who called me.” And God said, “Just tell those who are on your side to come to your side. Those who are on the side of the enemy let them go to their side. I will show them that I can perform wonders on land. Then ask the ground to open its mouth and swallow these people and close it’s mouth as if nothing has happened.” Every sickness in your body, every pain, tonight the ground is going to swallow them up! (Amen!)

Unlike the case I shared with you earlier on in Acts 16:25-26 the Almighty God told the ground to shake. You see some enemy thought that they have already got God’s children chained, that they shut the door against them so that they can never escape. God said, I don’t need keys all I need to do is to get the earth to shake and the ground began to shake and it shook sufficiently till every door was flung open and every yoke was broken! Tonight, the ground is going to shake for somebody. (Amen!) I said there will be an earthquake for someone! (Amen!) Prison doors will open! (Amen!) and yokes shall be destroyed! (Amen!)

So He performs wonders on  land. And then He performs wonders with water.In Gen.1:20-21 God spoke to water. He said, bring forth and it brought forth abundantly. You know He didn’t waste His time creating a fish and then creating this, He just said to water, “Water bring forth!” Every miracle you need, God will speak the word and they will come forth. I said they will come forth! He performed wonders with water. In John 2:1-11 He spoke to water and it became wine. You know the story very well.

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here, there is a pain like a fire in your lower abdomen. He said the fire as been put out. The pain is gone never to return!

There was a wedding in Cana of Galilee and they ran out of wine and they now found themselves facing shame, finding themselves looking at defeat, reproach, all kinds of horrible things. My Father spoke to water and the water became wine. The shame changed to glory, defeat became victory which is exactly what is going to happen to somebody here tonight! And at the end, just like the first preacher said, the end came better than the beginning. Let me prophesy to somebody here tonight, the end of this year is going to be better than the beginning for you. (Amen!) And the end of your life is going to be better than the beginning of your life. (Amen!)

When he spoke to water and it became wine, what He actually did is He accelerated a miracle because water normally when it goes to a tree like orange it will become a kind of wine. Then God decided to accelerate…….. Your miracle shall be accelerated tonight (Amen!) I say your miracle shall be accelerated tonight! (Amen!)

He spoke to the Red Sea and the Red Sea produced a highway. You know the story. Ex.14:21-22, Therefore tonight, whatever is the Red Sea blocking your way to progress it shall hear the voice of Lord, and there will be a way where there is no way before, in Jesus name! (Amen!) And then of course He spoke again to the Red Sea and it came together and drowned the enemy of Israel. All those who have been pursuing you, who say you will not reach your goal, God will speak to the Red Sea and the pursuers shall be pursued.

I don’t know if you have ever heard the testimony of some missionary in a Communist country. They wanted to kill them and they were running from them. Suddenly they came to a river, very big river that had been flooded. Those who were pursuing them, deliberately were pursuing them towards that river, knowing that that’s where they will catch them. When the missionaries got to the river, they lifted up their eyes to the Almighty God. They said, “God, You opened the way in the Red Sea before Your children. Do it again!” And they heard the spirit of God saying, “Go ahead!” So they began to walk in and as they began to go, they suddenly discovered that there was a bridge under the river. So they kept on walking. But when those who were pursuing them came, they said, “We didn’t know that there is a shallow section here! So they followed them. And  God allowed them to follow until they got to the middle and then God removed His bridge. The missionaries were saved. Those who were pursuing them began to drink water. Those who say you will not see the New Year, they are in for a surprise I say they are in for a surprise.

In Matt.14:22-32 Jesus Christ told His disciples, He said, “Go ahead, I will come and join you. I want to go and pray first.” He went. He prayed and because He enjoy praying, He forgot time. By the time He came, all the boats were gone but He had promised that He will come and meet them. So He just stepped on water and began to walk on water to fulfil His promise. Whatever He has to do to fulfil His promise in your life, He will do it tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) Then He performs wonders with the wind. Like I told you earlier on it is the wind from his nostrils that changed us to a man and we all know the story inEze.37:1-10 It was his wind that blew on dry bones that they became an army again. Tonight the wind of God is going to blow and dry bones will live again. I didn’t hear your ‘Amen’ to that. (Amen!)

The Lord said there is someone here, your palm is usually unusually hot. Anybody who shakes hands with you will quickly withdraw his hand. The Lord asked me to tell you, He has solved that problem, He has solved the problem.

The Bible says in Mark 4:35-41 It tells us a story. The disciples and the Lord were in the boat. He was sleeping and there was a storm and the boat became full of water. And they woke Him up and said, “Don’t You care that we perish?” “What is the trouble? Can’t you see the storm?” He said, (I’m sure he must have yawned) “Oh peace, be still!” And immediately, immediately all was still. Every storm in your life shall be stilled tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) One word from Him. So when He spoke to the wind, the wind needs to obey because He made the wind. When He spoke to the sea, the sea Had to obey because He made the sea. He didn’t swear at the sea. What manner of man is this, that the sea and wind obey him? The Bible said they were afraid. I’ve said it before, when the miracle is a real kind of miracle even the recipient will become afraid. The kind of miracle that frightens you, you are going to get one tonight! (Amen!)

Some years ago I went to hold a programme for one of my sons in the North and in the afternoon we were just talking about the wind storm that they normally get there, that when the storm comes, the wind from the desert will become very big, the sand will cover everything. Suddenly, even in the afternoon everything will become dark. He said, whenever that happens if you are in the house, stay in the house. If you are outside run inside. If you are in a car, park your car and stay there. He said that’s how to survive. So I said, I see. And then in the evening, we were holding the programme outside because the people who came were far too many for the little church and suddenly the wind arose and before you knew it, by the time you move towards your right you couldn’t see anything other than several storey buildings. On your left the same thing. In front, the same thing and everybody began to panic. Suddenly I heard my Father say to me, “Stretch your hand and say, “Peace”. And immediately, immediately the wind stopped, the sand collapsed and we had a wonderful programme. Tonight, on behalf of my Father, I am stretching my hand to all of you and I am saying, ‘Peace’ I say, ‘Peace!’ and then I say, ‘Peace’ and I say, ‘Peace’. There will be Peace in Jesus name! (Amen!)

He performs wonders with fire. Psalm 68:1-3 It says, let God arise and his enemies be scattered. And then He’s telling you why His enemy must scatter whenever God arises, The reason is the fire goes before him, fire goes before Him. In other words the despatch rider of the Most High is fire. Whenever God is going somewhere there is a fire that is going  ahead of Him. What is the purpose of that fire? To cleanse the front. Anything that is not of God that’s in front, the fire will go ahead and consume. Whatever is in your life that is not of God, the fire of God will consume it tonight.

And one of the reasons why I liked Elijah is because he knows how to deal with his enemies. In 2 King 1:9-12 Elijah was sitting on a hill praying to God, having time with the Most High and then suddenly one king decided that he wanted to arrest him. And the soldiers came. Because they had swords and spears they thought they can kill the man of God anyhow. So they said, “Man of God come down, You are under arrest.” He said, “Me?” They said, “Yes.” “You are talking to me?” They said, “Yes.” “And you know that I’m a man of God?” “You said it with your own mouth.” He said, “If I am a man of God, I hereby command that all of you become blind. “Every demon that is trying to arrest you, every evil covenant, every curse from your generation, the fire of God will consume  them now! (Amen!)

But the story that I love most about God performing wonders with fire

Thank You Father! God is healing somebody with bone problem. He said there is someone, it’s as if there are holes in your bones. The bones have been healed right now. (Amen!)

In 1 King 18:36-40 God answered the prayer of Elijah by fire. He will answer your prayer by fire tonight! (Amen!) And in answering that prayer by fire, the fire consumed the offering. Which means He accepted the offering of Elijah. All your offerings will be accepted from tonight onward. (Amen!)  You see the fire does more than that, it also consumed the wood. There is a very important point there. There are many wood that can never become fire. They will live and die, never becoming fire, That means there are many people who will never fully achieve their potential. What God wants them to become, they will never become it before they die. Because this fire fell on the wood it became fire – it fulfilled the purpose for which it was created. Because the fire of  God is going to fall tonight, the purpose for which God created you shall be fulfilled. (Amen!) And then the fire consumed the rock, If real fire can consume rock and you know what rock stands for. In Africa when somebody is poor and comes from a very poor background, when poverty is the history of their generation, they always say this is somebody from a rocky town. Whatever poverty that has been in your generation the fire of God is going to take care of that tonight! (Amen!)

Then the fire licked up the water. Wonder of wonders! Water is supposed to put out fire but when God wants to perform wonders with fire He will use the fire to lick up the water and what does that mean?  It means God is going to change every law in order to be able to wipe away all tears from your eyes. I said he will change all the laws. If you say you are already too old to marry, He will make you younger. If you say you are too old to have children, He will make you younger! If they say your faith is already finished, God will say, I’ve just started. One thing I know, there is somebody here tonight who will never weep again. If you are that one let me hear you say ‘Amen’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

And the fire consumed the dust. It consumed the offering, it consumed the wood, consumed the rock, licked up the water and went ahead and kept on eating even the soil. Everything that is trying to pull you into the ground, that weakness in your body, immoral thoughts, everything that is contrary to the heavenly goal shall be consumed by fire in Jesus name! (Amen!)

So He performed wonders with land, with water, with wind, with fire……..what about wonders or let me give you one example. I heard a story, true story, of a child of God whose house was in a street of houses. There were fifteen houses next to one another and then there was a fire outbreak. It started from house one and came to house two and then to house three and then to house four and this child of God is house was house no 8.  So she ran out – “Lord stop the fire! Stop the fire! You know I don’t have the money to build another house!” The fire kept coming. House four, house five, house six, house seven and then the fire jumped to house nine, house ten, house eleven, house twelve, thirteen, fourteen fifteen. By the time the firemen arrived, out of the fifteen houses only one was standing – house number 8. It doesn’t matter how many houses fire may destroy, your own is not going to burn. (Amen!) I say your own is not going to burn! (Amen!)

He performs wonders with animals. He can command lions to eat or not to eat. You know the story. In Daniel 6

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is somebody here tonight, the one pursuing you is going to receive a shocking news that will keep him busy for the rest of the year and he will forget about you completely.

Daniel 6:16-24 You know the story. They threw Daniel into the lion’s den and the lions saw him coming and they thought this is good food but God said, “No you can’t eat this one because he’s a lion too!” But they said, “No, this is a human lion!” But God said, “No, he’s the son of the Lion of Judah and the son of a lion is a lion!” How many children of the lion of Judah are here tonight? Let me hear you roar like a lion! Glory be to God! You know the rest of the story. The following day, because the lion said, “God we are hungry.” God said, “Don’t worry. I will give you food.” The following morning they brought out Daniel and God told the king, “Send for those who threw Daniel down here. Ask them to come with their wives and their children. They must not leave a relative behind!” Everyone that have been pursuing you, you will not see them again. (Amen!) I say you will not see them again. (Amen!) And when they came, the king said, “Who is this man?” They said “That’s Daniel! We threw him into the den of lions. Has anyone ever gone to the den of the lions and returned alive?” They said, “No.” So the king said, “Something must have happened to my lions. Either somebody stole them or they are all dead. I want you to help me to go and find out. You, your wives and your children – go down and find out what happen to my lions.” Those who wanted to kill you tonight they shall become food for the lions from today. (Amen!)

God performed wonders with animals. In Num.22:22-35 the Bible caused an ass to speak like a human being. God can cause an animal to speak. He can perform wonders with an animal. I can tell you several stories. I can tell you the story of a friend of mine who was sick and everybody thought he was going to die. But he had a dog, a dog that he loved and as he was lying down on his sick bed, the dog was sleeping on the floor by his side. Suddenly the dog saw the angel of death coming for his owner. He jumped up and barked. Apparently the angel of death knocked it on the head and he died. And immediately the owner recovered. That’s one example.

And some of you probably have heard one of my testimonies. When I wanted to visit my sister on the farm, I thought I knew the road but when I got there I saw this one branching to the right, this one branching to the left. I didn’t know which one to take, And as I took one turn, took another turn, I became desperately lost, and I was very young. I don’t know the way back home. I didn’t know the way to my sister’s farm and I didn’t know what to do but all of a sudden I saw a small white dog. And he began to wag his tail as if to say we are friends and he began to move. Something within me just said, “Follow.” And I followed the dog. My sister was so happy to see me! “How could you possibly find your way here? This place is far from home! This road is complicated! How did you find your way?” I said, “I followed that white dog.” And they said, “There is no white dog here.” We searched everywhere – there was no dog. Whatever God is going to use to lead you to your goal, whether a dog or a goat, or a lamb, He will provide you in Jesus name! (Amen!)

He performs wonders with birds. In Ex.16:11-13 when the children of Israel said they wanted meat, God spoke to quails. He told them, I want you to go and soar around the camp of the children of Israel and they surrounded the camp and they did not run when the children of Israel were coming for them! Whatever way God is going to use to meet your needs, He will do it tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

I’m sure many of us know that the most beautiful thing about God performing wonders with birds is found in 1 King 17:2-7. When God spoke to Elijah and said, “I want you to go and sit at the Brook Cherith. I have commanded the ravens to bring you food, to feed you there.” Each time I read this story I get something new. God sent ravens to bring food to His servant. Do you know the birds called ravens? They are notorious for being gluttonous – they know how to eat. When somebody can eat and eat a lot they say he’s ravenously hungry. When you say you are very, very hungry, you want to consume as much food as possible, they use the raven as the adjective to describe your hunger. And yet they are the ones that God used as messengers to carry food to His servant. And they didn’t eat the food on the way and they didn’t miss the address! Your miracle is not going to miss the way (Amen!) Nobody will stop your miracle on the way (Amen!)

God can perform miracles with birds. When we first got here I had a little encounter with birds. There were these little, little birds. Whenever they come on a tree within one day they will remove all the leaves. Suddenly they took over the Camp. They were so many I didn’t know what to do with them. One of the Pastors had a Dane gun. I asked him to come and shoot at them. He will just shoot into their midst. Dozens of them will fall down dead because they were so many but it looks as if when he killed about a dozen, it looks as if a hundred of them will come and take the position. “God what am I going to do? Convention is coming. Am I going to….. what am I going to tell the people – birds can’t allow us to hold the Convention?” So I said, “Father help!” Let somebody shout, “Lord help me!” Say it one more time! “Lord help me!” That was my cry when I travelled. When I came back the following day, I saw eagles. I don’t know where they came from. There were hundreds of them and they just went and kept on eating these birds. They just went after them, swallowing them, eating them! Within two days those disturbing little birds had been finished. As soon as they finished them, the eagle disappeared. Now every bird of Satan that has surrounded your family, surrounded your home, surrounded your business – the eagles of God will swallow them! (Amen!) Say one more time – “Lord help!”

So He performed wonders with birds. He performs wonders with fish, either to swallow a disobedient child, like the story of Jonah in Jonah 1:13 so that the disobedient child can still be preserved until he will repent. Or as we read inMatt.17:24-27, You can use the mouth of a fish as a bank. You know, anytime we had a special program coming, I always rejoiced with everybody who will participate because I have discovered, for every man there is a fish with your money in it’s mouth. All you need to do is find the fish! So when you have an opportunity to go witnessing, whether you know it or not, you are getting closer and closer to your fish. Among those people that we are going to invite for the Congress for example there is a fish with your money in its mouth. You will catch that fish in Jesus  name! (Amen!) I say you will catch the fish in Jesus name! (Amen)

He performs wonders with fish, He performs wonders with angels and I like that one – either to shut the mouth of lions in Dan.6:22 or to open locked doors and frustrate the enemy as in Acts 5:17-24. The enemy locked Peter and John in Prison. An angel came at night, set them free and told them – go on preaching! When those who locked them in heard that the prison doors were securely locked but when they got inside Peter and John were gone. Somebody said, “Ah! They are already in the church preaching!” The enemies became frustrated. God is going to frustrate your enemy! (Amen!) 

The Bible says angels are ministering spirits that are sent to minister to the heirs of salvation. You may not see them but if you are truly born again you have your own bodyguards and they are angels. Human body guards will run when they see them. They are going to say, “I don’t think I want to lose my life because of one man!” But angels, they can’t die and they are around you. The word of God says he will give charge to his angels concerning you, so that wherever you go they will be there to guard you and to protect you. Some of you know the story.

An evangelist went to preach in one town in Ogun State years ago and he was criticizing all the worshipers of a particular idol and so they decided they will kill him. So they announced to him if you come back here to preach tomorrow – you are dead! So the evangelist called those who were ministering with him said, “Tomorrow I am going to preach. Those of you who don’t want to die, you better go.” And those people said “Well, you are the one they want to kill. We will come all the same.” And then the news spread that they were going to kill the evangelist tomorrow. So those who didn’t want to come to the programme came to see how they are going to kill the evangelist and the man preached the sermon of his life – got several souls saved. As soon as he finished preaching six huge men came on the stage, surrounded him, they said, “Come let’s go! “Ah!” everybody said, “Eh they’ve come to kill him!” They took him outside the town and when they got outside the town they told him to go and……And now as you go back to your seats, you and as many of us still have something to ask God, we have called on God to answer us by fire, He’s going to answer us by fire – your individual prayers. Now you can begin to talk to the Lord. Talk to Him as you go back. Those of you on seat, talk to God. From now on wherever you go He will go with you and take care of you.

And then God performed wonders with weather. He can seal the heavens as we found in 1 King 17:1 or He can rain bombs on his enemies from the sky as we find in Joshua 10:8-11. And yet He can open the windows of heaven and give you  a breakthrough, according to Malachi 3:10. He said if you bring all the tithes into his house He said he will open the window of heaven and pour you a blessing that there will be no room enough to receive. He can open the windows of heaven and pour you showers of blessing. So He can perform wonders with the weather. I am believing God that one of the new songs we will sing is that “I am surrounded in showers of blessing.” So shall it be in Jesus name! (Amen!)

So He can perform wonders with land with wind, with water, with fire, with animal, with birds, with fish, with angels, with weather, I can continue on and on. I can tell you how he can perform wonders with insects, and so on and so forth but the major question is – will He perform wonders for me?  That’s the major question. I believe the answer is ‘Yes’. If you believe so let me hear you also say, “Yes!”  Will He perform wonders for you? You are not sure? If you are sure let your ‘Yes’ show that you are sure. Now, how am I sure He will perform wonders for you? How am I sure? Because he says in His word that you are for signs and wonders. He said all the children He has given me are for signs and wonders. You better say it with your own mouth, “I am for signs and wonders!”

Not only can He perform wonders for you, He can even turn you to wonders to the world. In Acts 3:1-10 when the man who had been lame from birth began to walk leaping, jumping praising God the Bible says, everybody was amazed. There is a miracle coming your way that will turn you to a wonder to the rest of the world. But He can do more than that. He can perform wonders through you. He can use you to perform wonders. If you believe He will use you to perform wonders, say, “Amen!” In Acts 19:11-12, the Bible tells us, God performed special miracles by the hand of Paul, that through his body they took handkerchiefs and aprons to the sick and they were healed and the demons in their body disappeared.

It is that passage in the Bible that I held on to one day when somebody came to me and said my grandmother is sick. They’ve operated on her and because of her age the place they operated refused to heal. So whenever she ate, the food was coming out from the stomach. The people could have sent her home to die but because she came from a wealthy family they kept her in the hospital. So the granddaughter came, “Mama is old if she dies she’s old  enough to die but I don’t want her to die in a messy manner. Let God heal her and then after that if she wants to die she can die.” So I said, “Bring me a handkerchief.” And I prayed over the handkerchief. And she took the handkerchief to the grandmother and they laid it on the grandmother. The following day when they came to check whether Mama is alive or dead, not only was she healed, they couldn’t even find the place where they operated on her! That’s what God of wonders can do!

That’s not all, because you may say well because you are General Overseer that’s why God can do it through you. Sometimes ago we had a programme for Full Gospel Business men fellowship. They had a programme in Port Harcourt and there was a woman there she heard all kind of testimonies that I shared with them and she wanted to come to me. They wouldn’t allow her. The crowd was much. When I got into the car and I was driving away she was able to rub her handkerchief against the car and said – I have got the anointing and she kept the handkerchief. When she got home she discovered that her junior sister had gone mad. Small little thing – six men had to hold her down. She said, “Ah! Don’t worry! I have an handkerchief – give way!” And she laid the handkerchief on the girl and all the demons left her. And everybody looked at her – so you too can perform wonders! Is there anybody here who will go from here performing wonders? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

So God is a wonder He can perform wonders. He can perform wonders for you. He can turn you to a wonder He can perform wonders through you. It’s really up to you. If only you believe. Mark 9:23 If you can believe all things are possible to him that believeth. Do I hear somebody say, “Lord I believe!” Say it loud and clear! Believe and then ask. John 14:14 if you ask anything in my name I will do it. However before you ask there are two kinds of wonders…….

The Lord said there is someone here, you had a dream recently and an angry crowd of people was marching towards you, marching against you. The Lord asked me to tell you, I will meet them half way.

Before you ask – there are two kinds of wonders – good wonders, bad wonders. When God healed Naaman by asking him to go and bath in River Jordan that was a good wonder. When the leprosy was taken from River Jordan and it was put on the body of Gehazi that was a wonder – a bad wonder. When God turned  a mad man to an evangelist in Mark 5:1-20 that was a good wonder. When God turned a king to an animal in Dan. 4:30-33 that was a wonder too – a bad wonder. Now the question is what kind of wonder do you want good or bad? Ah! You better answer! You better let God hear you! What kind of wonder do you want? You see, in Pro.28:13 the word of God says he that conceals a sin shall not prosper but he that confesseth them and forsaketh them shall obtain mercy. There will be wonders here tonight! Wonder are already happening. More wonders are about to happen. But if you are still in your sin, if you refuse to surrender your life to Jesus. If you say I want to continue to live in sin, you too will receive a wonder but it will not be a good wonder. Demons will fly out tonight but as they are flying out, if they discover that you are not already washed in the blood of the Lamb or you claim to be born again and you are still in sin they may change accommodation and take over a new one because this is a night of wonders.

If you are not yet born again, before we call on the God of wonders, come and surrender your life to Him. Once His blood covers you, He promised that when danger is passing by He will see the blood and pass over you. Come and surrender your life to Jesus Christ now! I will count up to ten, if you want to surrender your life to Jesus get here before I say ten. The choice is yours – good wonder or bad wonder the choice is yours 1……..2……..3………4………..5

You have to hurry up. Some of you know you are coming up from a far distance and you have to get here before I say ten. The choice is yours. God of wonders is here. He performs good wonders for his children and bad wonders for his enemies and all those who are yet to surrender their life to Him they qualify as enemies of God. So if you want to give your life to Jesus, come now 6……..7…….

The gates of mercy are still open but they may close very soon. It’s the Lord that is calling you, not men. He’s asking you to make a choice tonight. Are you for Him or are you against Him? The God of wonders is very good friend but He’s a very dangerous enemy. If you want to give your life to Jesus you have to hurry up now 7…….8

I can see many of you coming from a distance but you have to hurry up! And there are some of you who might still be sitting down there and you are not sure of your salvation. Don’t say I did not call you. Don’t say I didn’t give you an opportunity to surrender your life to Jesus! This is the day of salvation If you miss it you may never find another opportunity! and 9!

It’s the last call. Anybody who wants to come, you better come now! And those of us already in front let’s lift our voice to the Almighty God and say, Lord I’ve come to surrender my life to You. Save my soul! Forgive my sin! Give me the wonder of salvation! Let me become a true child of the living God! The grace to forsake sin, give it unto me! Be my Lord! Be my saviour!

The rest of us let’s stretch our hands toward these people and pray for them. The God who saves our soul will their soul also! Pray for them brethren! Intercede for these people that the Saviour will save their souls! Pray for them brethren! Call on the Saviour, that He will save their souls. That today too they will experience the wonder of salvation; that they will become brand new creatures In the mighty name of Jesus pray for them!

And those of you who are still coming hurry up quickly now! Because we want to end the prayer now! Get here before we stop praying! The Lord is calling you now and saying ‘Hurry up!’ This is your last call! Get here before we finish praying! I can still see some of you walking – you better run! This is your day of salvation! God is calling you now! saying hurry up! Hurry up! Hurry up! Hurry up! Come and cry to him and say, Lord save my soul! Forgive my sins Lord! Be merciful unto me! Cleanse me in Your Blood! Write my name in the Book of Life!” Hurry up those of you who are still coming on the way. And the rest of us let’s pray for these people for another one minute, that the Almighty God will save their souls! Pray with all your hearts! The greatest wonder is the wonder of salvation. Ask God to save the souls of these people. Intercede for them for another thirty seconds pray for them! That today they will also receive their own salvation! Pray for them brethren – that every one of them will receive salvation now! That the Blood of Jesus that cleansed you from your own sin will cleanse them also from their own sin!  Pray for them brethren! And if you are coming, you better come now because we want to close now. We want to round up this session right now! Hurry up those of you who are still on the way! Thank You Father! Glory be to God! Thank You Almighty! In Jesus name we have prayed!        

Father we thank You! We thank You because You always hear us. Thank You for Your word that has gone forth today. Thank You for those who have responded. Accept our thanks in Jesus name! Daddy, you said if any man will come unto me I will no wise cast him out. They have come to You now. Receive them in Jesus name! Forgive them in Jesus name! Cleanse them in Your Blood in Jesus name! Write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus name! And from today Lord let them begin to do Your will! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! Amen!

Now those of you in front let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) I want to promise you that right now even as the angels are rejoicing in heaven over you, those of us here are also rejoicing. Even though they are not showing it yet but they are rejoicing. I can see some of them clapping because they are rejoicing with you that in one single day seven wonders can happen. Let me tell you the truth it can even be more. God brought you here tonight to give you unlimited wonders. Do you believe that? Let’s stand on our feet. If you believe that this really is your night, I want you to first of all lift up your hands to the Almighty God and just begin to thank Him in advance for the marvellous things He’s about to do in your life. Talk to the Almighty God! Praise Him for what He’s about to do in your life!………..I believe. Yes Lord, I believe, Yes Lord  I believe it is well with me………If you believe that shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) God bless you, you may be seated. Very soon we’ll be going to a session of serious prayers but before then we have some visitors with us and we will love to welcome them.

Is anybody ready to pray? The elders have a saying, anybody who wants to get the kernel from palm kernel will have to use a little bit of force. Anybody who wants wonders must be ready to pray for wonders. I want to teach you a song many of you will probably know it. It’s very simple. It says. “Oh, oh Lord, Oh, oh Lord, Oh, oh Lord here we pray today here we pray…………Oluwa, Oluwa, Oluwa………..I want somebody to shout a mighty Alleluia!

Lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, thou God of wonders, let Your wonders begins in my life today! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! “Oh God of wonders, let Your wonders begin in my life today! Let Your wonders begin in my life today! Oh Lord hear me as I pray today. Let Your wonders begin in my life today! Oh Lord hear me as I pray today – let Your wonders begin in my life! Let Your wonders begin in my life! Almighty God of wonders, wonders in my family, wonders in my home, wonders in the life of my children, wonders in my business, wonders in my ministry! Oh Lord of wonders perform wonders in my life today! Perform wonders! Perform wonders! Oh Lord here me as I pray today! You are the One who can answer all my prayers! You are the God of wonders! Oh Lord hear me as I pray! Let Your wonders begin in my life today! Let Your wonders begin in my life today! Let Your wonders begins in my life today! Let Your wonders begin in my life today! Oh God wonder-working God! Let Your wonders begin in my life today! You are the only One who can perform wonders in heaven and on earth! Let Your wonders begins in my life today!

Now we are praying and some are looking around! Eh! Open your mouth and say, “Father! Command my body to reject whatever is not planted by You. Call on the Almighty God! “Father, command all my body to reject every sickness, every disease, every ache, every pain and demon, everything that is not planted by You! Father, command my body! Speak to my flesh! Speak to my body now! Speak to my blood! Speak to my bone! Speak to my marrow! Speak to every bit of me! To reject everything that is not planted by You! Speak to my body now! Almighty God wonder-working God! Command my body to reject everything that is not divine! Command my body to reject whatever is not planted by You! Alleluia! Father! In the mighty name of Jesus!”

May I encourage you one more time. After this you can pray the way you like. It’s up to you. The word of God is clear from the day of John the Baptist, the kingdom of God suffereth violence and the violent have taken it by force. I want you to cry to the Almighty God and say, Father! Ask the earth to shake loose every prison door that has been shut against my progress!” You go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! “Father in the mighty name of Jesus! Command the earth to shake lose every door that has been closed against my progress! Right now! My Lord and my Savour, command the earth to shake every prison door that has been shut against my progress! In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, shake lose every door, every prison door against my progress – shake them loose! King of glory shake them loose! Right now as I pray let the earth tremble! Let there be an earthquake to shake loose every prison door that has been shut against my progress! Let every yoke, every yoke be broken!” Alleluia!…………Thank You Father! Thank You Lord! Glory be to God! Blessed be the name of the Lord! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. (Amen!)

Now you are going to command, in the mighty name of Jesus, and say Earth, earth! Hear the word of the Lord! Open your mouth and swallow all my problems.” Go ahead! Command in the mighty name of Jesus! Earth hear the word of the Lord! Tremble before Your maker! Open your mouth swallow all my problems! I command in the mighty name of Jesus! Earth! Earth! Hear the word of the Lord, tremble before your maker! Open your mouth! Swallow all my problems! Every demon, every evil covenant, every evil plan in my family – earth open your mouth and swallow them all! Swallow them all! swallow them up! Swallow them up! Hear the voice of the Lord O, Earth! I command you in the mighty name of Jesus, Open your mouth – Swallow every bit of my problem today! Right now as I pray! All those problems ganging up against me, trying to frustrate my destiny, trying to frustrate the purpose of God for my life, earth swallow them up! In the mighty name of Jesus, swallow them up! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Father! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! In Jesus mighty name we pray! (Amen!)

When God wanted to perform a special wonder He will, at times, speak through men. He said to Ezekiel, “Can these bones live?” Ezekiel said, “Lord I don’t know. Only you can tell.” He said, “In any case prophesy! Ask wind to blow on these dry bones and they shall live.” I want you to prophesy with your own mouth and command the wind to come from the East, from the West, from the North, from the South to blow on you, that your dry bones may live again! Open your mouth and command in the mighty name of Jesus! Wind! Blow! In the mighty name of Jesus! From the East, from the West, from North from south! Blow, blow! That my dry bones may live again! Wind blow! In the mighty name of Jesus! Wind I command you to blow! Blow from the East! Blow from the West! Blow from the North! Blow from the South! Wind blow! Let the wind of the Holy Spirit blow on me!  Let my bones live again! Wind blow! Wind blow! Wind blow and let my dry bone live again! Wind blow that every lost hope might be renewed! Wind blow! That blind may see, that the deaf may hear, that the lame may walk, that the barren may become fruitful! Winds blow! In the mighty name of Jesus! Wind blow! That the irreversible might be reversed! Wind blow, blow today! blow right now, blow right now!” Glory be to God! Thank You Father! Blessed be the name of the Lord! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Then you are going to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, “Father turn my water to wine!” Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! He knows what that means, “Lord! Turn my water to wine! Turn my shame to glory! Turn my failure to success! Turn my defeat to triumph! Turn my poverty to success! Lord God Almighty, turn my water to wine in the mighty name of Jesus! In the mighty name of Jesus turn my water to wine! Turn my tears to laughter! Oh Yes, God Almighty, tonight God of wonders turn my water to wine! Turn my water to wine! Turn my water to wine – right now! King of glory turn my water to wine that Your name might be glorified! Turn my water to wine! Right now as I pray turn my water to wine that the world may know that you are the living God! Turn my water to wine!” Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty name we prayed! (Amen!)

As we are about to pray our next prayer I want all indigenes of Niger Delta to begin to come forward. We want to pray for you after our next prayer point. Now while they are coming, the rest of us let’s lift our voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, answer my prayer by fire tonight!” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! “Father answer my prayer by fire tonight! Almighty God answer my prayer by fire tonight! King of glory! You are the unchangeable Lord! Answer my prayer by fire tonight! As I call on You tonight, answer my prayer by fire tonight! You are the consuming fire yourself! Answer my prayer by fire tonight!

I want you to use these indigenes of Niger Delta who are here as a point of contact for your various States. When there was constant violence in Ife Modakeke we cried to God here and peace came. We want peace in Niger Delta, We don’t want any more violence, No more poverty! (Amen!) No more bloodshed (Amen!) No more death! (Amen!) No more sorrow! (Amen!) Brethren I want you to join me as we pray for these people. Raise your hands towards them and as they raise their hands towards God and let us decree that in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, in Niger Delta State there will be no more violence, no more death, no more sorrow, no more poverty, no more failure, no more sickness, no more demons. Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God. In the mighty name of Jesus, we stand as one and we call on the Almighty God for our brothers and sisters in Niger Delta and we decree in the Name that’s above every other name that there will be progress, there will be success. There will be no more sorrow, no more death, no more violence, no more evil! That all the bloodsucking demons in Niger Delta will be cast into the sea, never to resurface again! We decree peace, tranquillity progress, joy, victory, abundance! In the mighty name of Jesus the permanent solution to all the problems in Niger Delta! Oh Yes, we pray that beginning from now every intertribal war will end, every conflict will come to an end. There’ll be peace again! There’ll be joy again! There’ll be progress again! There’ll be no more death! There’ll be no more sickness! There’ll be no more sorrow – not again in the mighty name of Jesus! In the mighty name of Jesus! In the mighty name of Jesus! So shall it be! So shall it be! Anyone who says it will not be so God himself will uproot! Thank You my Father!

Anyone who says it will not be so that fellow shall be uprooted in Jesus name! (Amen!) Anyone who says I don’t want peace in Niger Delta, the fire of God will consume them in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Tell Him now, “Lord God Almighty today do something new in my life, do something great in my life, do something wondrous in my life! Wonder–working God perform wonders in my life today! Perform wonders in my life today! Almighty God today let there be wonders in my life! Wonders in my home, wonders in the life of my family, wonders in Your Church, wonders in Nigeria, wonders in the life of all those who wish me well! Give them good wonders. Those who do not wish me well give them wonders too – wonders that will keep them occupied for the rest of their lives that they won’t bother me anymore! God of wonders, perform wonders in my life today! Do it Almighty God and we will glorify Your name! Thank You my Father! Thank You Lord Jesus! In Jesus mighty name we have prayed!

Thank you ministers of God, I think you are less busy. You can now return to your seat. Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause for the Almighty God, for hard–working ministers of God. God will renew your strength and increase your anointing. Glory be to God! Now I’m aware that there might still be a few dozen people who may still be coming but we have to keep moving.

What is going to happen next month who can tell me? What do you say is it? Alright we have Holy Ghost Congress. That’s correct but, eh, what is it again “A new song!” How many of you will sing a new song? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Now this year’s Congress is going to be different from any one you have ever seen before. (Amen!) Far, far powerful than ever before. People are coming from all over the world. In fact I know a man of God in America who said he’s going to charter a plane so he would bring a hundred people. And then, because if you want a ticket from Europe to Nigeria in December now, you can’t find a seat – all planes are full because people are coming to Holy Ghost Congress. The Lord is good. In addition to the fact that the anointing of God is going to flow like mighty waves of the ocean, we have decided, instead of the afternoon remaining free, we want to put action to our prayers, action to our faith. We have discovered one of our major problems is that we don’t know how to make wealth.

For example there is one man who is a graduate of many years. All he does now is to rear snails and mushrooms in his backyard and he’s making millions. There are little, little things you can do, that can bring in tremendous money but we just don’t know. That will not even touch your normal daily work. So we have decided this year we will bring all these experts to come and teach us how to do small-scale industries, small-scale farming. There are tremendous opportunities in Nigeria that we don’t know about, everybody is waiting for the government. Now by the grace of God very soon we will say the government can take their own policy it doesn’t matter – my mushrooms, people must buy. So that will be in the afternoons Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday the only afternoon that is free is Friday because of the – you know, Friday night. And then Saturday, all afternoon there will be programmes to teach us how to turn little to much.

And we are going to bring experts to talk to our youth on career counselling. For example I know somebody who during his youth corps year, he did so much in addition to being a youth corper that he bought a car. By the time he finished his youth service he was already employing labour. We want our own children to be employers of labour not somebody who will have to apply before they can eat. So all that we are going to handle. We are going to make this practical Christianity in the afternoon. And so we appeal to you to advertise this year’s Congress like you have never done before!

God will bless your offering, He will accept it and use it for His glory and you will never, never want again in Jesus name! (Amen!) From now on whatever you touch will prosper (Amen!) and wonders of abundance will be your portion in Jesus name! (Amen!) So shall it be, in Jesus mighty name we pray! (Amen!) God bless you!

Now let’s take the testimonies quick:

My name is Mrs Oluwatoyin Temitope Ajayi. I’m standing here to give glory to God for what the Lord has done in my life. I give all the glory to God and I return all the praise unto Him because He only is due. I’ve been trusting God for the fruit of the womb after I had my first born in the year 1989, 14 years ago. Nothing happened. But it got to a time my husband was to bring our Daddy in the Lord, the General Overseer, to the Auditorium to listen to the choir as regards the Convention last year and I told my husband, after taking Daddy back to the office I will like to sit at the exact place Daddy sat just to have a prayer and he did. When he took Daddy back to the office I quickly ran into the car and I sat there and said, Father if truly this is Your man and he’s a servant of God and he’s a God-sent man during our own time, let it be unto me according to my faith that by this time (that was July) by July I will like to be here having my baby in my hand, testifying to the goodness of God in my life. And I said that prayer and left. I was to go to London for my profession. On getting to London everything was ok with me but I never knew I was pregnant until November 24thwhen I was feeling somehow and the doctor said I should go for a scan. On getting there I was told this is your baby’s head, your baby’s hand. I was like, God you can be so merciful! So I  give God all the glory, all the honour and I thank my Father in the Lord for the support he gave to me during pregnancy, he called me several times without number praying with me on the phone. Here I am with the baby Adebayo Iyinoluwa. Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord! My name is Glory Okogie. When Daddy came to Enugu for Divine Involvement, God miraculously healed me from the disease called HIV. Praise the Lord! I have testified in Enugu. A brother advised me to come. But when I came in March to testify the theme then was, “Beginning of greatness.” When I had this problem I don’t normally see my period but after that programme that day God restored my period. Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord! My name is Brother Akin Oluwadare. During the last Holy Ghost night Daddy mentioned my case. I discovered sometimes ago that my genital organ has been increasing in size but God met me and restored me back to normal. Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord! My name is Adewole Makinde, City of David parish, Ilorin, Kwara Province. In July this year my son went to the teaching hospital, Ilorin for sickle cell crisis but when we got there series of tests were conducted upon him. Series of X-ray were taken and so on. Then suddenly we were told he had a hole in the heart and there were perforations and the size of the heart is abnormal and that the heart is completely damaged. They did the tests several times and confirmed at the Teaching Hospital  then we were referred to Bisket Medical Centre, Oshogbo. Not to confirm whether the heart was damaged or not but to determine the extent of the damage and the size of the hole they said they detected at the Teaching Hospital, Ilorin. I decided that I will not go to Bisket Hospital until I had come for the Convention in August. When we came in August I had the rare opportunity of meeting our father in the Lord in his office and Papa took time to go through the hospital document and Papa said this is bad, this is not right thing for a child and I quote Baba, my Father, “This result I cancel in Jesus name and that Father, supply a new heart into Adebayo.” He just said, “Thank you Lord you have supplied it.” Adebayo you have received a new heart.

 GLORY BE TO GOD!!!!
