Year 2004 Messages.

ANOINTING FOR GREATNESS

2nd of January, 2004

Everything you do this year please do it with all your strength! There was a shepherd boy that became the greatest king that Israel ever had. There is something that we can learn from this shepherd boy and that is that everything he did, he did with all his strength. When he goes to war, he fought with all his strength. When he’s praising God He will do it with all his strength. When he’s dancing for God, even though he was a king, nobody could beat him. I want you  to start this year with just about 3 minutes of praising God like you have never done before! Go ahead, praise Him! Worship Him! Dance for Him! Clap for Him! Sing unto Him! Praise Him like you have never done before! …. Thank You Daddy! Amen!

Thank You Lord! Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord….. Those of you who can sing in the spirit, go ahead now, begin to sing in the spirit. The rest of you can just key in……… Alleluia, Alleluia, alleluia! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! In the mighty Name of Jesus!

Father we bless Your Name! King of Kings! Lord of Lords!! I AM THAT I AM! Ancient of Days!! Alpha, Omega, Beginning, Ending, Almighty God, Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Father Glory be to Your Holy Name! Thank You for the New Year! Thank You for the year that has gone! Thank You for miracles signs and wonders! Thank You for  Your Congress! Thank You for the souls saved! Thank You for the souls healed! Thank You for those set free! Thank You that there were no accidents Glory be to Your Holy Name Lord! Father Glory be to Your Holy Name! Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Today Father, have Your way. Send down the fire of the Holy Spirit! Let today be different, let it be wonderful, let it be glorious, let it be powerful! Let it be just wonderful! Take all the glory, give all the blessings In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

For those of you who were not here on the Eve night – the Lord told us that this year is going to be the most crucial year in our lives, that what is going to happen to us for the rest of our lives will be determined by what we did or didn’t do this year. So we want to start in a fairly different manner. We want to pray some serious prayers because you see, you cannot allow anybody to block your way this year – and I told those who were here on that Eve night that when you hear some prayers you may want to hesitate to pray. Don’t hesitate pray! They are very, very necessary. And we are going to settle the matter of our leadership first because whatever happens to the head is going to affect the body.

So your first prayer is for the GO. You are going to say… You will lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, if the General Overseer is using any other powers other than Yours, kill him! Go ahead  talk to the Almighty God: If this General Overseer is using any other power other than yours, kill him, kill him straight away, kill him this very week, we don’t want somebody who will lead us astray.! If the General Overseer is pretending and he’s using any powers other that Your power kill him! Kill him immediately! Open your mouth and pray – it is very important! Pray this prayer, your own is coming! Pray! Pray! If the General Overseer is using any other powers other than Yours – kill him! kill him! kill him! Straight away! Don’t spare! Judgement has to begin in the house of God! If he is using any other means other than Your powers – kill him! Don’t spare him! Thank You Father! Hear Your children in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Then you need to point to him and say, “Father, But if he’s using Your powers and Your powers only then increase his anointing!” Go ahead talk to the Almighty God: If he’s relying on You and You alone, increase his anointing! Because we need more miracles, we need more signs, we need more wonders! Lord if this Your son relies on You and You alone then equip him like never before! Increase his anointing so that he can do what You want done, easily, effectively, thoroughly…. Thank You Father! …… Father hear the cry of Your children and do exactly as they have asked for, exactly as they have asked for… do it for them … that Your name might be glorified. Thank You Lord! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you are still praying for the GO. Your own is coming so pray very well and say, “Father, if the GO is going to slow me down this year by not telling me the whole truth – remove Him! Go ahead! Talk to the Lord! Your life depends on it! You cannot afford to miss this year! Pray! Pray! If the General Overseer’s going to slow me down this year by not telling me the whole truth – remove him! Put somebody there who will tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth! I can’t afford to waste anymore of my life. It’s up t o You Lord! I have cried to You at the beginning of the year! Hear Lord! Hear and answer and do quickly what I’ve requested for, to the glory of Your Name! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we pray! (Amen!)

Now You go on and say, “Father, If any pastor, any minister will hinder me this year uproot him or her – go ahead, talk to the Almighty God! Any pastor, any minister, any where that will want to hinder me this year – uproot him or her. Any one who wants to hinder me, any pastor, any minister who will want to hinder me this year, who will not let me move like I should move, whose life-style is going to drag me back – uproot Lord! Don’t spare! No don’t spare! Just go ahead Lord God Almighty! purify Your church, to the glory of Your holy Name purify Your church! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you are going to pray for your neighbour. Don’t touch anybody – just pray. Say, “Father, Any agent of the devil that is hiding among us – set them on fire! Set them on fire! Set them on fire! Every agent of the devil, hibernating among us – set them on fire! set them on fire Lord, set them on fire! set them on fire! Wherever they may be. Whether they be among the workers, or they be among the choir, or they be among the ushers or they be among the pastors or they be in the congregation! In any way, how, whatsoever, any agent of the devil hibernating amongst us – set them on fire! Thank You Lord! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

It’s your turn now. We will make your own gentle for now. It’s not going to remain forever gentle. Say, “Father, If I’ve been  hindering Your work in the past, forgive me – I won’t do so again” Go ahead! Talk to God! If I’m the one who had been hindering Your work in the past, Lord, forgive me, I won’t do so again. Have mercy on me Lord! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me!  If I’ve been hindering Your work in the past Lord, please forgive me, I won’t do so again! I won’t do so again! I promise You Lord this year,  I won’t hinder Your work! Please forgive me. Have mercy on me Lord, have mercy. I promise You I won’t do so again!

Say, “Father, don’t let me be my own enemy this year! Go ahead! Talk to God! Almighty don’t let me be my own enemy this year! Thank You Lord! Don’t let me be my own enemy this year! Thank You my Father and M God!  Don’t let me be my own enemy this year! Please Lord, Don’t let me be my own enemy this year! Don’t let me be my own enemy this year! Don’t let me be my own enemy this year! Thank You Jesus! BBYHN Alleluia! Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

One final prayer for yourself before we proceed, and that is, “Father, let my life glorify You this year. Go ahead! Talk to the Lord! Almighty God Let my life glorify You this year! Let my life glorify You this year!…. Let my life, my entire life,  glorify You this year! Let it be so Lord! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Father, we have no help but You. You are the only one that can help us. There are many enemies of our souls that we don’t even know – people and organisations and groups that may not want us to reach our goal. This year Father, beginning from now, uproot them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)  Whoever they may be, whether General Overseer or pastor, or minister, or choir or worker or usher or anyone that will not let us reach our goal this year – uproot in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

And Lord we beg, don’t let us be our own enemies this year Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)  Let me hear somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Now we could be seated with the exception of those who are born in January. All January children stand. All right we want to pray for you. This is your month and you will have extra ordinary success this month. In the mighty Name of Jesus! I commit all January children into Your hands – they are the children of the beginning, Father, and you are the Alpha.. Father, help them! Support them! Promote them! Prosper them! Lket it be well with them! Let this year be more wonderful than the ones they have spent in the past! Let their joy forever be full! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)  God bless you! Happy Birthday to all of you and Happy New Year to every one of you. This year will be glorious for you. God will show you His salvation one way or the other He will make sure your joy is full. By force He will drive laziness out pf your bones – that inability to pray, the Almighty God will take it away from you.

I told those who came on the Eve – no more shallow waters! This year, because  of what God has told me, I’m not gong to be gentle with you, I’m not going to be gentle with myself either. I’m not going to be just Daddy this year – I’m also going to be coach! Going to be your coach so if you are not ready for serious business don’t come to the Holy Ghost Service stay away – we are only  interested in serious people this year. We don’t want a crowd of failures, we want a crowd of those who will be great. How many of you will be great? Let me hear a great ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) And then you need to know – no royal road to success. If you want to reach the top you need to know that climbing is not for the lazy ones. There is always a price to pay for something good. Anything that is cheap has no value. How valuable something is determined by how great the  price you have to pay. This year we are going to pray hard, we are going to work hard, we are going to sow hard, we are going to study hard and we are going to harvest hard. By the time the year is over you would have laid the foundation for the rest of your life.

I prayed a prayer for  those who came on the Eve which I know is already working for them. I want to pray it for those of you who are here too :  by December 2004 you will be as powerful as I am now… I didn’t hear your ‘Amen’ to that. ..what I’m believing God for you is that by December of this year, you will wave your hand and the sick will be healed, so shall it be.

That will tell you straight away why it can’t be just any crowd. It’s only those of us who are ready for serious business…. a group of commandos for the Lord. There are some people who come 3 times a year. They come in March. They come in August. They come in December. They will be welcome but like I told those who came on the Eve it is what is inside the bird that the bird flies with. Two people can dress very well, wear the same kind of suit, sit down together smiling – you can’t know the difference if everything is just normal.. But if a policeman comes to the 2 of them and says, “Hey, you!” One of the 2 is a carpenter, the other one is a lawyer. The carpenter is going to say, “Yes sir! Yes sir!” But the lawyer will say, “Yes, officer, can I help you?” What is the difference between the two? What they know! By the end of this year, God helping me, the devil will say, “Hey you!” You will say to the devil, “Are you talking to me? Are you addressing me?” ” Oh, I’m sorry, I’m sorry! Ah!” That’s how it will be in Jesus Name!

But then the pot that is going to eat the stew, the bottom will be hot.. That is why I asked you to pray the prayers we prayed at the beginning. You need to know the kind of power God is going to transfer to you. That is why I say if the GO is using any other power other than that of God, God kill him! Because out of that power is going to be transferred to you this year. (Amen!) And that’s why I also asked you to pray the 2nd prayer or is it the 3rd ?one? That if the GO is going to hinder me this year by not telling me the whole truth, remove him! I know you are praying that prayer  now and God had heard! So if for any selfish reason I want to hold back the truth from you, I will remember your prayer. This year I will tell you the truth, the whole truth, nothing but the truth whether it is bitter or not.

So if you have friends that you love, tell them that the Holy Ghost Service has become something else. It is now the School of Greatness, theSchool of the Supernatural and I want you to help me inform all those who have attended the School of Disciples I will have a short meeting  with them on February 6th after the Holy Ghost Service . And please, all the Covenant Partners in group 4 I will want to have a meeting with you on the 25th January at 5pm at Comfort Palace, so in case you don’t get our letters before then, please if you know any one that is in Group 4 just tell him: 25 January, 5pm Comfort Palace, we are going to have a meeting.

1 Samuel 16:1 And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.

The Almighty God said to Samuel, “Why are you weeping for Saul? I have rejected him!” I pray God will not reject you! (Amen!) Anyone that God has rejected is finished. Finished! No Pastor, no GO can bring him back again. God is saying to Samuel, “I’m the one who chose this fellow, I’m the one who told you to anoint him, I’m the one who said he should be king. Then he got there and he became too big, he won’t obey me anymore.  I made him, so  I unmake him!” I pray one more time the Almighty God will not reject any of you. (Amen!) You better say ‘Amen!’ hard! (Amen!)

So He said, “Fill your horn with oil, I want to send you to Jesse, I have provided me a king.” There is at least someone here today who is going to become a king for God. It is for such people that I have a message this year. I will do my best, I will do my very best to teach you this year. It is up to you to learn.  God said to Samuel, “Samuel, forget the past because I want to do a new thing!” The Almighty God wants to do a new thing in your life. (Amen!) If you will not answer my prayers I will stop praying for you… You know I can direct the prayers at myself, I can just say, God is asking me to let you know He wants to do anew thing in my life…

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature. It said, Old things have passed away. All things have become new! This year, in your life, everything will become New! In Phil. 3:13-14 Paul said, “I am forgetting the things that are behind and pressing towards the ones to come..” I’m prophesying to somebody here today, your success of  toady will make all the success of the past appear as nothing! Your joy this year will make all the joys of your previous years as nothing! Your greatness this year will reduce all your greatness of the past to nothing. So shall it be in Jesus’ Name(Amen!)

So God said to Samuel: Forget the past! I want to do a new thing. “Fill thy horn with oil.” What is that one saying? He is saying, Samuel it is time for anointing, time for power! Tell your neighbour: This is my year for anointing! This is my year of power!

You know, one of the things God said, concerning this year is that the days of false prophets in Nigeria are numbered. So may  I appeal to all of you who always say, ‘God said’ when He hasn’t said anything, you  better keep your mouth shut.

Now God said to me that in February, at the Holy Ghost Service they’ll be an anointing service. I said, “Lord, Amen! I will do whatever you ask, I will do all you ask. But we have just had an anointing service in December and usually we have anther one in March.” So He said, “Yes, I know but some people were not here in December and they will come in February and they want to be a King for me so I’m going to anoint them.” I said, “Your will be done! What about those of us who have been anointed in December?” He said, “You’ll get a double dose.” I said, “Well Thank You Daddy but will there be another anointing service in March?” He said, Yes, Have you forgotten that David was anointed 3 times and that there are people among my children who will be greater than David?” Is anybody like that here today? Let me hear you shout for joy Let me hear you shout for joy! And by the way, just in case I may forget… when you are coming in March I may forget, get 2 brand new handkerchiefs, pure white because you are going to hold one on your left, one on your right and God is going to do something. He’s going to bless your right, He’s going to bless your left! This is a very. very crucial year!

Fill your horn with oil, Samuel. It is time for anointing. It is time for yokes to be destroyed. I am prophesying to somebody today, every hindering force in your life shall be destroyed this year! (Amen!) Every hindering force, from any angle whatsoever, shall be destroyed by the anointing this year! (Amen!) Isaiah 10:27 says the anointing destroys the yoke. My brothers and my sisters, my beloved children…..

Matt. 3:11 says that the Lord Jesus Christ is going to baptize us with the Holy Ghost and with fire. May I tell you that this year you are going to have a taste of the Holy Ghost fire! (Amen!) Now when God said to Samuel, fill thy horn, He said to him, where you are going, we are not going to need half full of oil. The horn must be full! It is time for abundant anointing. You will remember years later David said inPsalm 23:5, Thou anointest my head with oil. What happens to my cup? My cup runneth over.  This year your cup of power will overrun.(Amen!) I’ve said it before in the past, that a time is coming that a member of the RCCG will be so powerful that when you go to the market anyone you bump against by accident  will be healed! I believe that is going to start this year!

The anointing for excelling, the kind that was on Daniel, is coming on someone this year.

God went further to say, I have provided me a King. We all know God is a great provider. Phil.4:19 It says,  But my God shall provide all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. This year your physical needs will be supplied, (Amen!),  your mental needs will be supplied, (Amen!), your spiritual needs will be supplied, (Amen!), your marital needs will be supplied! (Amen!)

When you read Psalm 23 you will see the link between all these supplies and anointing. It said my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Christ means “The Anointed One.” After David was anointed that was when he wrote Psalm 23. And when you get home study Psalm 23 or better still get my  book on Psalm 23, and you will see everything God says He has provided for you there. Sleep – He maketh me to lie down. Not by force, just gently like a baby. In green pastures, and we all know that that green pasture is the best food for the sheep. So He provides me with abundant food. He leads me beside the still waters so that I can drink to my satisfaction. He restores my soul. He gives me restoration. He leads me in the paths of righteousness. He gives me divine guidance. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil … … He gives me boldness! He says,  For thou art with me… He assures me of divine presence! He says, Thy rod.. that means correction – make a mistake, I hit you on the head, And Thy staff, they comfort me! I will never lack for comfort. Thou preparedst  a table before me. You know divine catering, You can never find a better caterer than the Almighty! In  the presence of my enemies. Security! Real security! And then He anointed my head with oil. That’s anointing! My cup runneth over! Overflowing Blessing1 Then surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me – for how long? – All the days of my life and I have somewhere to dwell. I’ll be dwelling in the house of the Lord forever and ever!. God has provided everything you can eat! Sleep! Abundant food! Drink! Restoration! Boldness! divine Presence! Correction! Protection! Comfort! Divine catering! Security! Anointing! Overflowing Blessing! Goodness, mercy and accommodation! God is a Great Provider. Will somebody give that God a big round of applause!

According to Ephesions 3:20, it said, God is able to provide abundantly, exceedingly, abundantly above all you can ask or think. Before you can even think about it He will say, “I will provide…”  because His name is Jehovah El Shaddai, the God who is more than enough! Only God could say, as He said in Malachi 3:10, He said, I will open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing, one blessing, that you won’t have room enough to contain. Get ready brethren, a time is coming when your blessing will be so much , there will not be enough room to contain them. Not only blessings of these material things. You know Deut. 34:7 says, Moses was 120 years old and he didn’t need glasses. The Bible says his eyes were not dim and his natural force was not abated. You know what that one means – your natural force not abated? That means he could still father a child at 120. And then I see some of you walking like this at 60-something. ” Don’t you know I’m already old? I’m an elder now…” When God says that  a young child will die at hundred! That we will come to church and say, “Hey, we lost a child..” How old is the child? Hundred years old! That’s the promise of God! So those of you who are  already thinking of walking by the stick because you are approaching seventy, throw away the stick, stand higher! You are a child of the living God! Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ “I can’t fast, I’m 65 years old!” This year you will fast! You will fast until you become young again!

Joshua 14:6-13 Caleb said, I am now 85. I am as strong today as I was when I was 40! Ready to go to battle to take mountains, to defeat giants at 85! How old are you that you are now asking that they must carry you before you can come out? He will renew your age like the eagles. (Amen!)

God is the great Provider! He will provide you with health, strength, long life, vitality. The man is saying, I have provided for all but now I want to provide for myself! ….. When the Almighty God comes to our midst and He goes round, checking, checking, checking and then He gets to your side, He says, I want you to be special unto me, Will you be happy? I didn’t hear you?   You know for a while I’ve been thinking. I’ve been studying everything that has to do with the Holy Communion Service and by the way I should have told those of you that didn’t come on the Eve, by the grace of God, the Thursday before the Holy Ghost night there will be Holy Communion Service here on Camp, by 7 pm..

And when I got to Mark 14:12-16 I tried to imagine that man in whose house the Lord ate the Last Supper. There are thousands of houses but God chose that man’s house! God will come and eat in your house this year! (Amen!) I say God will come and eat in your house this year! Can you imagine if the President says he wants to come and eat lunch in your house? Everybody in the street will know! Because the day before he arrives the security men would have come to check everybody in the street and they will be saying, “Ah! What’s happening?” The President is coming to eat in your house! Can you imagine if the King of Glory is coming to eat in your house! All the Host of heaven would have come to check every house in the street! – every witch, every wizard, every demon would have been scattered! God will eat in your house this year! But will you make the house ready! If God says He wants to use your house this year will you surrender the house to Him? They said to some people, “We want to use your house for house fellowship. They said, “No…  I don’t want every Dick and Harry coming into my house. My rug is imported from Persia.” God wants to pay you a visit! Your God will visit in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

You know when I was studying Matthew 21:1-11 about the ass that Jesus rode – what a blessed ass. You know he even walked the clothes of human beings. Do you know he trampled on human clothes. How I wish God could ride me! How many of you want Jesus Christ to just ride on you? ! Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ ! (Alleluia!)   because that’s exactly what He’s going to do from now on.

And when I read this Mark 14; if you read from 3 to 9 there, there was a woman who had an alabaster box of ointment, very, very precious and she came broke it and poured the oil on the head of Jesus Christ. You know when people read that passage they talk about how precious the ointment is – ah she gave something very, very costly to God! That is true but what I saw there is the unbelievable privilege  of being the one who will carry oil and pour it on the head of the Almighty! How much will I pay for the opportunity, you know when we sing the song, “And crown Him Lord of all I always try to imagine myself taking the crown to put it on the head of Jesus Christ! What a privilege! Even to be the one whose head will touch His feet. You know when she was wiping the feet with the hair on her head, the head was touching that leg that had been from eternity to eternity! What an honour to be chosen by God for God! May God choose you this year in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) I say may God choose you this year in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). What an honour to be a divine treasurer, to be the treasurer of the one who said , “The earth is mine and the fullness thereof.” What an honour!

And He wants someone special, someone special that will be reserved for Him. He’s looking for someone who will be reserved for God so that He can pour wealth into His pocket. In Haggai 2:4 and 8. He said , “You work for me and I will show you that gold is mine, silver is mine!” He’s looking for a barren woman who will say, “Lord, give me a son and I will give him back to you!” like Hannah said. The Almighty God is looking for someone who will say, “Heal me and I will serve you!” Like it happened  to the mother-in-law of Peter. She was feverish, Jesus went in, touched her hand, she got up immediately and began to prepare food for him. This year God is looking for people who want to give, not those who want just to receive…. those who want to serve Him! They are the ones He will prosper this year. He’s looking for those who will dance for Him so that He can remove all the shackles that the enemy has put on their feet. He’s looking for those who will clap for Him so that He can make their hands free. He’s looking for people who will shout for Him, so that He can give them something to shout about! He said, “I have provided me a King.” Not a useless person! He didn’t say, “I have provided me a slave!” when He said I have provided me a king… whether the devil likes it or not, you are going to reach the top. As many of you as have determined to serve God whole heartedly this year, you will reach the top!

2 Timothy 2:20-21, the Bible says in a great house there are all kinds of vessels, some vessels unto honour, some vessels unto dishonour. It said there are certain vessels that are meet for the master’s use. You will be a vessel unto honour to the Almighty God in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). He said ,  I have provided for myself a king! It is easy to understand that when God wants to provide something for Himself, it has to be the best. When you check the vessels that are used in the house of God in those days. In 1 Kings 7:48-50, you will find that every one of them were made of pure gold – gold that is so pure…. God is looking for human beings – this year in particular – that will be pure gold stuff! Pure in thoughts, pure in deeds, pure in their words, pure in their motives! And the moment He got such a fellow He will give them special protection. Psalm 105:14-15, it said touch not my anointed… don’t try it! Don’t try it! The moment you  become special to God, anybody who tries to harm you will have the Almighty God to deal with. In Deuteronomy 32:8-10 it describes those who are special to Him as the apples of His eyes and only a stupid person will want to go and tamper with the apple of the eye of the Most High! Psalm 91 tells us the kind of protection God gives to those who are special to Him. How can you be a house-help, living in the house of God and expect evil to come near you? No way! You will just hear that it’s happening outside. It’s not going to come near you.

I mean there are certain things He said, in this Psalm 91. If you look at verse 14-16 there, it said if you will voluntarily decide, I’m going to serve God. I’m going to serve God with all my heart because I love Him! I will be His servant! I will do whatever He asked me to do! There are 7 things God said that He will do for you – number one is that I will deliver you. I will promote you! That’s what it means by saying – I will set you on High! He said, I will answer you! He said, I will be with you. He said, I will honour you! He said, I will satisfy you with long life! He said, I will show you my salvation! All this will be your portion this year in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

But He said, I have provided me a king! Anyone that God says, I am providing for myself – no matter how humble people may look at him, he will be operating as a king. Eccl 8:14 it says where the word of the king is there is power. You become dedicated to the service of God, every decree you make will be established. In 1 Samuel 8:19, the Almighty God says, concerning Samuel, that boy that was dedicated to Him, “He’s  going to serve me all the days of his life. He’s not going to serve any other person other than me!” He said, “When he speaks, before his saliva can touch the ground I will do what he asks me to do.” Do you know that this year, as you become completely dedicated to God, when you pray here, before you get to the expressway, the answer will come. You better say ‘Amen!’ to that! (Amen!)

You know when I was studying Elisha and I got to 2 Kings 2:23-24, and there were some demonic children that were mocking Elisha and he turned round and cursed them, the Bible said, 2 she-bears came out from the bush and tore them! I said, “Ah!, the bears, had they been waiting? Waiting to kill people?” The answer I got from the Holy Spirit was that even if there were no bear anywhere around, because my servant has spoken, I will create 2 immediately, to carry out his wishes! Everything that you need that your prayers may be answered speedily, if they are not yet there, before the sun rises God will provide them! God will provide them!

Now if we look at 1 Samuel 13:14 you will notice that before we even came to 1 Samuel 16 certain things had been happening….

God had been seeking for somebody since last year, He had been  seeking for somebody : Who am I going to promote in the year 2004? Who am I going to set on high in the year 2004? Who is going to be head in the year 2004? Who is going to serve me with all his heart in the year 2004? Who is the one? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

He said, the Lord had sought Him a man. You see a king always goes for the best. 1 Samuel 8:10-17 the Bible made it clear, that a king,  when Israel asked for a king, the king you are asking for is going to take the best that you have for himself! Now the Almighty God is called the King of Kings, so automatically when He says I want to select somebody for Myself, He searches carefully. He looks for the best of the best. I pray that the Almighty God will choose you this year (Amen!) and you will become the best of the best. (Amen!)

When we read Proverbs 3:9-10. It says honour the Lord with the first fruits of your increase…. no… no…. don’t treat God as if He’s a beggar. He’s the King of Kings, He wants the best. That’s why it says give Him your first fruits – don’t give Him leftovers! Now God is looking for the best among the best and remember He has billions to choose from! That’s why the Bible says His eyes run to and fro throughout the whole earth. God is looking for somebody. If God want s to choose somebody who will be the greatest Pastor in the whole world – you know there are so many pastors to choose from and He may brush aside all the pastors and look among those who are not even pastors yet. If God is looking for someone who is going to be the best of the best in the whole world will  He find you? I say will He find you? You didn’t answer me! Will He find you? (Yes!) So shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

God is looking for somebody like Abraham who will surrender his best to God so that God in return can give him the best. God is looking for somebody like David on whim he can pour every blessing He has so that the cup can run over! But He wants someone who will turn round and say, I will sing unto the Lord because He has dealt bountifully with me. He is looking for someone who will focus on God and on God alone. Now, so He was searching for someone – then Psalm 89:20 tells us that He found someone, He said, I have found David, my servant. With my own oil have I anointed him. He found one. God will find one today. (Amen!) He will find someone who will do His utmost will. If the Almighty God were to ask a question today and say, Who is on the Lord’s side? Who will serve the King of Kings?” What will be your answer? I didn’t hear you!

There’s a song we used to sing – a question and answer song, that’s all – Who is on the Lord’s side? I want to know, who is on the Lord’s side? I am on the Lord’s side and the Lord is on m side. As long as I live, As long as I live, I am on the Lord’s side… well maybe we should sing it once or twice so that those who don’t know it can pick it up quickly. It’s a very crucial song for this year. … who is on the Lord’s side?…..Sisters alone I want you to sing it. I will ask the question, you will answer it…. who is on the Lord’s side? I want to know, who is on the Lord’s side? I am on the Lord’s side and the Lord is on my side. As long as I live, As long as I live, I am on the Lord’s side… That’s good! Now brothers! Who is on the Lord’s side? I want to know, who is on the Lord’s side? I am on the Lord’s side and the Lord is on my side. As long as I live, As long as I live, I am on the Lord’s side……Everybody together now! Who is on the Lord’s side? I want to know, who is on the Lord’s side? I am on the Lord’s side and the Lord is on my side. As long as I live, As long as I live, I am on the Lord’s side……… And l will be on your side in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Now He said, “I have found David, my servant.” Now this seems to be… I thought He said, I have provided me a King and now He’s saying, I have found David, my servant? King, servant, servant king? Which one? The  person God is looking for is the one who will be a king and yet be a servant. Jesus Christ said in Mark 10:44, It said, the one who is going to be the greatest among you must be the servant of all! God is looking for someone whose handkerchiefs will, heal, whose handkerchiefs will cast out demons! Like Apostle Paul – at the same time… if you read Acts 28:1-10, when there was a shipwreck on the Island of Malta and it was raining and it was very cold and all the people in the boat were sitting round the fire. Who was the one who went to fetch firewood? Apostle Paul!

You ask a Bishop to go and fetch firewood!…. Don’t you now who I am? I’m a provincial Pastor! Me? To sweep the ground! We are going to sit there. Don’t you know who I am? You want me to dust the chair for people to sit on?…… The hand that cannot do manual labour can never heal the sick! You can write that one down! And you want to be able to open blind eyes? Forget it! It’s not going to happen. It’s not going to happen!  It’s as simple as that! You want  God to use you? Come down from that exalted throne that you have placed yourself on and become a servant!

Peter, his shadow healed the sick and yet when Jesus was feeding the multitude Peter was among those serving the bread and fish. Not only that, when Jesus Christ said, Gather up the remainder, Peter was among those who were collecting the leftovers. I told you I would tell you the whole truth this year! Those of you who  just want to come and just sit down, doing nothing, no contribution of any type. We say we want to work for God. “Well how much will it cost to hire a labourer?” Who should be the labourer if not you? Some of you came to the Congress, everything was set. Check, I visited every toilet to make sure everything is clean, waiting for you. Oh, some years ago when things were smaller – ask those people who are older pastors there, I will take my pail, fill it with water and Izal and get my broom and then I say, “Any volunteer who wants to follow me?” “Where are we going?” “To  wash the toilets!” These hands that can wash toilets, will raise the dead! Do you want to raise the dead too?

The King that will be the servant. The greatest of you will be the servant of all. Nowadays we hear of, “I am the wife of the provincial Pastor, I can’t work in the kitchen – don’t you know who I am? My hands are for bangles not for holding firewood.” Fine, put all the bangles there my dear and watch the rest of us as we begin to chase out demons, as we  begin to heal the sick, as we begin to cause the lame to walk! Do I hear somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). You can’t do manual labour? You are not going to go far. When I became born again I told the Almighty God I had been wild, wild for the devil, now I am on Your side, I don’t want to be an ordinary Christian, I want to be like You!”  How many of you want to be like Jesus Christ? Ah! So shall it be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

And things began to happen. Ask the elders there. They know my history. I was  born again in their presence. Ask the interpreter – he knows my history! Glory be to God! I know that we wanted to cut the bush round the Church at Ebute-Metta. I was a lecturer in the University. My car was probably the newest one even though it was second-hand in the church. I told you he knows my history – I was glad! I went to the market I boughtagboaje – file it very well, I was the first to arrive in Church, cutting grass! The hand that was cutting grass can now make the barren conceive. Then we wanted to extend our land and to do so we carry sawdust and pour it into the lagoon. I was happy! I got a big basket. One day as I was carrying the sawdust, there was go –slow and some people thought there might be  a way through the church. They didn’t know that it’s just the church there. And one of my former students in the University of Lagos was driving into the church and he saw me with big basket of sawdust on my head. He said, “Ahhhh! Oga!” I said, “Which oga? Which oga? You want to be oga to Jesus?” To lead is to serve. To lead is to serve. The Almighty God is looking for someone whose dead bones will raise the dead but who at the same time must be willing to pour water on the hands of others. Are you still on the Lord’s side? (Yes!) You still want Him to take you as something special? God is looking for someone like Paul, through whom He can perform special miracles but who will forever regard himself as less then the least… If anybody ask me, why are you always saying  Sir, Sir, Sir ” to everybody? I’m less than the least of the saints. The lower you are, the higher God will promote you. The higher you put yourself, the bigger will be your crash when He crushes you. The Bible says, underneath are the everlasting arms. You want him to promote you? Humble yourself!

Now there’s no shouting now! I told you I would tell you the truth, the whole truth…… But there is nothing else for me to do – before I get here  they have already cleaned all the chairs! That’s true o – because you came late! Those who want to be number one they will come before you. But there are other ways you could even serve God. How many times you drove past those who are coming  to the Holy Ghost Service and  there’s nobody in your car? How many times? Sir, don’t you know that there are armed robbers? Is it your car that armed robbers are looking for? The Almighty God doesn’t know that you are coming to His own place? He doesn’t know you are coming to serve Him? There are many of us here – I told you, I’m not going to spare you this year because you are going to be number one – you are going to be the best, you are going to reach the top, but the pot that will eat the stew there will be some fire underneath!

There are many of us here who could conveniently hire a bus to carry people on Holy Ghost night to the Holy Ghost ground, without you feeling it at all! If you want to serve, there are avenues to serve! There are avenues to serve! This year you will serve Him! I didn’t hear your ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)I say I didn’t hear your ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

He said, I have found David, my servant. God is not just looking for somebody who will serve the people. He’s looking for someone who will serve Him! H’s no longer looking for ministers who will be directed by people. That’s what got Saul into trouble. He wanted to be popular! He didn’t want to offend the people. I know how to preach so I won’t offend you. But I will rather offend you and please God so at the end of the day I will see you in heaven. I will tell you the truth – if you don’t like it that’s no problem! He said, I have found David my servant, who will serve me.. I’m going to serve God this year. If you will serve Him say it loud and clear! Say it as if you  mean it! God is looking for someone who like Jesus Christ will say to the devil, “You shall worship the Lord, Thy God and Him alone shall thou serve!”

Do you know the reason why many of us don’t worship Him the way we ought to? Why we don’t dance the way we ought to? It’s because we are thinking, what will the people around be saying: “Look at Chief so-so-so, look at the way he is dancing!” I remember what David said, when Michal said, “How can you be dancing like this?” What did he say? “Ahh,” he said, “I’m dancing for God – the One who made me King, the One who took the kingdom from your father and gave it to me – He’s  the one I’m dancing for!” Ehhh…” he said, “You haven’t seen anything yet! Let me dance for you a little more!” Who am I dancing for? The  One who gave me legs to dance! Who am I clapping for? The One who gave me two hands to clap! Who am I shouting to? The One who gave me a mouth to shout! Let somebody shout another ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Alright let me begin to round up Round 1. Psalm 78:70 – The Bible says, He chose David also, his servant and took him from the  sheepfolds. Remember He said at the beginning, I have provided me a king? Then He said, God has sought out a man for Himself, then He said He had found David His servant and now He said, He chose David, His servant – the Bible tells us that God does as He pleases and so He reserves the right on who to choose and who not to choose. He chose Abraham ad refused to choose Lot. Read your Bible very well. The Bible says Lot was a righteous man and yet God did not choose Lot. Many are called, but few are chosen – I pray that you’ll be one of those w ho is chosen! (Amen!) How come that God didn’t chose Lot? Because Lot has one big problem. Lot was self-centred. When Abraham said, Well here’s the land before you – chose! If you go left, I will go right. If you go left, I will go right. Read it in Genesis 13: 7 to 11. The Bible says, Lot chose all the place for himself. Everywhere that was beautiful he chose that for himself and left the rest for his uncle ! It was this uncle that brought him out. The blessing he got, he got it through this brother – but he was  thinking of himself alone. That’s why God said, No I can’t choose you. If all you want from Jesus Christ is “heal me, bless me” – he’s not going to choose you. You just want to come and eat. Eh! Eat and go! Why did He  choose Abraham? Because even when He gave Abraham Isaac, when God said He needed Isaac back, he said, “God, You can have him!” He chose someone who will put Him first. We sing a song: God must be honoured, must be honoured, must be honoured, Jesus must be honoured in my life everyday 2ce…. Those who want to give their life to Jesus – come – there is no begging this year. If you really mean business and you want to stop pretending to be a Christian; you want to really, really surrender to Him – do His will for the rest of your life – to obey Him, to serve Him.. come now, come now. I will count up to ten because of those of you who are far away but if you are not here by 10 no problem – the choice is yours. 1… As you come, let’s sing that song …God must be honoured, must be honoured, must be honoured, Jesus must be honoured in my life everyday …. 2 now…. 3….. 4….5… 6… 7…. 8… 9…. I can still see quite a lot of you still coming from afar off. Keep coming! Keep coming! Get here before we finish praying! Those of you who are here begin to pray!

Talk to the Almighty God! Say, “Lord I will serve You! Just forgive all my sins!  Save my soul! Have mercy on me today!” And the rest of us let’s stretch our hands to wards these people and intercede for this people and pray that the Almighty God will be merciful unto them. That the One who saved our souls, will save their souls also – Pray for them brethren! Those of you who are coming, hurry up now. Hurry up now1 Come and surrender your life to Jesus! Promise Him that you will serve Him! That you will serve Him all the days of your life! Ask Him to forgive you! Ask Him to cleanse you in His blood! Pray that you will do His will for the rest of your life – call on Him – say Lord Have mercy on me! I need Your help! I need Your help! Save my soul! I will serve You  – for the rest of my life! I will serve You! I will serve You! Just make me a brand new creature-forgive all my sins, and I will do Your will! I will do Your will!! Thank You Jesus! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus mighty Name we pray! (Amen!)

My Father and my God I want to thank You for Your Word. I want to thank You for these Your children that have come forward to surrender their lives to You! Please receive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!), forgive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) , cleanse them in Your blood in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!), write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Beginning form today let them do Your Will (Amen!) In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward. I want to tell you as from today I will be praying for you so I will need your names, your address and you principal prayer requests. Please write the address correctly, so that when I ask God to send  your miracle it will be sent to the address that you give me. If you are not sincere don’t pray it because as you pray so will the answer come. So let’s stand to our feet now and lift our voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, give me the grace to serve You! I will serve……

……. Jesus will baptize us with the Holy Ghost and with fire – you are going to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, I am tired of being a lukewarm Christian – set me on fire! Open your mouth and cry unto the Almighty God Set me on fire for You Lord! I’m tired of being a lukewarm Christian! You promised to baptize me with the Holy Ghost and with fire! Now I want that baptism – Set me on fire! Set me on fire! Set me on fire! Set me on fire! Set me on fire! Almighty God Set me on fire! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Do you want to serve God? I didn’t hear you! I say, I want to hear you! Lift your voice to the Almighty God and say Father, I don’t want to go to anybody for prayers again – I want to be praying for people! Empower me O Lord! I don’t want to be going around begging for prayers. I don’t want to be a prayer collector anymore! I want to be praying for people! I want to be praying for the sick and see them healed! I want to be able to pray for the captive and see them free. I want to be able to pray for the captive and see them free! Empower me O Lord! I want to be able to pray for the barren and the barren will be fruitful! Empower me O Lord! Empower me O Lord! Empower me O Lord! Empower me O Lord! Lord God Almighty! I want to be praying for the people – setting the captives free! Lord God Almighty! Empower me O Lord! Empower me O Lord! I don’t want to be a problem to anyone! I don’t want to be a burden to others. no-no- no- I want to be a problem solver. I want to be a solution! Empower me Lord! Empower me now, like never before! … Thank You Jesus! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Lift your voice to the Almighty God Say, Father, from now on I want to love what You love and hate what You hate! Call on the Almighty God! From this moment whatever You  love, that’s what I want to love! Whatever You hate – I want to hate it! I know You live holiness, You love purity, You love victory! You love power! You love  strength! You love life! You hate sickness, You hate disease! You hate demons! You hate sin! Everything You love I want to love, everything You hate, I want to hate, I want to hate it passionately, passionately! I want to love whatever You love and hate whatever You hate! Passionately! With every bit of my being, every bit of my being! I want to love souls being saved, the sick being healed, the captives being set free! I want to love the life of holiness, the life of purity, the life of victory.. I want to hate whatever You hate – passionately! I want to hate sin…

You must become a prayer warrior! The spirit of intercession, the spirit of  supplication pour it upon me O Lord! I want to pray and the ground will shake! Help me O Lord! Help me!

I don’t want to be one of those who’ll be sleeping once we say – let us pray! The spirit of intercession, the spirit of supplication – pour it on me Lord! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The Word of God says if my  soul prospers the my body will prosper and I will also prosper materially, so lift your voice to the Almighty and say,Father, this year like never before – promote me spiritually! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God!  Promote me spiritually Almighty God – this year like never before! Promote me spiritually! Promote me spiritually!  In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now go ahead and  ask God for something you want – something big, something great – ask hard things this year. With God nothing shall be impossible. Ask for hard things! Big things! Mighty things! Come on! Storm the Gates of Heaven! Ask for something hard this year! ……. Thank You Father! …… Thank You Lord! ….. In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

We are going to pray one more prayer – then I will pray for you! This time you are going to pray like soldiers of the cross. The Bible says, if you believe and you doubt not, you will say to this mountain be thou removed  and be thou cast into the sea and the Bible says it shall be so! With boldness, with trust in the Almighty God, the One who can never fail, the One whose word is forever settled! look at whatever mountain might be in front of you  – command it, in the mighty Name of Jesus to move! Move! Mountain of sickness – move! Mountain of disease – move! Mountain of poverty – move! Mountain of failure – move! Mountain of weakness – move! Mountain of barrenness – move! Mountain of poverty – move! Mountain of stagnation – move! Move now! I command you in the mighty name of Jesus! Move! Move now! Move today! I want to come back with a testimony! Next month I want my testimonies to shake the ground! Mountain move! …… Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Yes, so shall it be! Glory be to God! Yes! So shall it be In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

I want to pray for you now. If you like let your ‘Amen!’ be loud, if you like keep it quiet. Thank You Father! In the mighty Name of Jesus! I hereby decree, every obstacle in your way this year shall be crushed! (Amen!) Every force that dares to attack you this year shall be crushed. (Amen!) Everyone who opposes your promotion this year shall be crushed. (Amen!) All those who say you will not prosper will not be around to see you prosper! (Amen!)  They will not be around! Your enemies shall bow down before you! (Amen!) From now on it will be well with you! (Amen!) You will serve the Lord! (Amen!) Everything that you need to serve God with  – the money, the health, the strength – God shall give it to you abundantly! From now on, when you wake up in the morning the devil will say, “Ahh! Trouble has come again!” (Amen!) Witches will see you and run in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Wizards shall see you and run in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Demons shall see you and run in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) The power of the Holy Spirit shall fill you to overflowing in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) You shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover in Jesus’ Name!

So shall it be (Amen!) So shall it be (Amen!) So shall it be (Amen!) So shall it be (Amen!) In Jesus mighty Name I have prayed! (Amen!)  Let somebody give the Lord a big round of applause. God bless you! You may be seated!

Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Who will the Almighty God choose? I know its you, its me too but as I study the story of David – we may study him for the whole of this year – I could only come to one conclusion. Everything boils down to grace. There is nobody good enough to be used by God. Neither me nor you could claim to be pure enough or perfect enough but thank God for grace! Paul said, by the grace of God I am what I am. In Gen.7:5-8 God said, it repents me that  I made man, I’m going to wipe them out and the Bible says, but Noah found grace with God. It shall be said, Adeboye found grace with God. It shall be said, you found grace with God! In Gen.18:1-3 the Bible says Abraham was sitting at his tent when 3 men were passing by and when they got to the front of his tent they waited.  This year you will receive visitors of joy! I didn’t hear the ‘Amen’ to that one! (Amen!) They waited, and then It said, he ran to meet them, “Please, come and eat in my house…. If I have found favour with you…. I know you are passing by but you got to the front of my house and you waited. Don’t just wait. Come and eat in my house.” I’ve said it before. I’m saying it again, God will eat in your house this year. (Amen!) The one who said, “If I’m hungry, I won’t tell you – the cattle upon a thousand hills are mine,” said, alright we will come and eat. Was God hungry? No but Abraham found favour with God! This year, the favour of God will go with you wherever you go. (Amen!)

God said I have found  a man who will be my king, my servant, David. David wasn’t a perfect man. He himself said, in Psalm 18:35 He said, God, they gentleness had made me great! If you were to deal with me the way I deserve to be dealt with….. he said, God if you were to mark iniquity who will stand? But he said, forgiveness is with you so that we can fear you. He said, your gentleness had made me great. May the grace of God be extended to you this year. (Amen!) It all boils down to grace. It is the grace of God that brought you hear tonight and there are several others who have been coming before who will say, this one I want to rest. Oh they will come in February but by then you are already one month ahead! Whatever they gain in February, it will be in addition to whatever you are going to gain already now. Will you lift your hand to God and say, Thank You Jesus! The Bible says By grace are you saved. So everything that is going to happen from now on – it is grace. I was sharing with some of my children – some people will waste this year, not because they want to waste it but they didn’t know that this is the most crucial year of their life. But you have inside information. God is telling you from January! “Eh, my son, my daughter – this year is the year which will determine the rest of your life. Inside information from the most high God! That is grace and grace alone.

When God was  talking to me concerning this year, I rejoiced for the youth. Because some of us we are already in the second half of the game. Some of us are already over 60 – even if we agree to be 120 before we go we are already in the 2nd half! Some of you are just starting and now you have this inside information! All of you who are below fifty let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Those of us who are older – don’t worry! Moses began his ministry at 80. So those of you who are above 50 shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Grace, it is grace and grace alone. Our God is a God of grace. However, different people respond to grace in different ways. Grace can be refused. Proverbs 1:24-28 God said, I stretch out my hand and they refused. I said okay I will withdraw my hand and when their trouble comes, they will call and I will just laugh. I pray you will not refuse the grace of God! Some people may receive the grace of God in vain. In other words they know that grace is available but they will ignore it.  Paul said in 2 Corinthians 6:1. He said, I have not received the grace of God in vain. I too, Adeboye, will not receive the grace of God in vain. Some people abuse grace. Romans 6:1-2 Can we continue in sin and expect grace to abound? God forbid! Some people, Oh we are under grace! By the grace of God we have heard that demons are even afraid of the God of Adeboye. When they kidnapped one of his daughters the herbalist said,, “Hey, you want to get me into trouble? Go quickly, quickly! ” … I am a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, I am a son a daughter of Adeboye, I am covered, therefore I can steal, I can cheat, I can fornicate… can we continue in sin an expect grace to abound. God said, God forbid.

I was talking to God concerning somebody:  How come we prayed so much for this fellow and there is no answer? God said, You don’t know the whole story. Everything that is hindering prayers in your life you better let it go – now! Those things you know you are doing that  are contrary to the Word of God. Don’t abuse the grace of God and your prayers will be answered this year in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

And then Paul talked about those who frustrate the grace of God – Gal.2:21 In my own case I did not frustrate the grace of God. In other words. I know I have grace and I used that grace for His glory. Then of course 2 Peter 3:18 the Bible says some people grow in grace. God gave them grace, they used the grace for His glory, so God took them higher in grace. You will grow in grace in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

All the people that God gave grace to and used the grace correctly we read about them now. We read about Noah, Abraham, David, Solomon. But they all had one thing in common that showed God, Ah all right we have received grace, this is our response. Initially before they do anything else, as soon as they know that they are an object of grace, they did something – they built an altar for the Lord. As Noah was stepping out of the ark, knowing that it is the grace of God that preserved him and his family – what is the first thing he did? He built an altar to the Lord? As soon as Abraham discovered that God had chosen him out of an idolatrous family – he built an altar unto the Lord. The moment He came to Solomon. Ah God you made me king – my father was an adulterer and a murderer. My mother an adulteress of the worse kind that brought death to her  husband. These two people combined and produced me and you still made me king. What did he do? He went to the altar.

What is an altar? An altar number one, is a place of total surrender. Each time you read the story of Abraham offering Isaac in Genesis 22:9 If you get to verse 9 it said that Abraham tied Isaac and laid him on the altar. Abraham at that time was almost 120 years old and Isaac was just about 20 years old, strong! Supposed Isaac decided to run? Can Abraham catch him? I’m asking you. If there is a race between a man who is 120 and one who is 20, who is going to win? Or if there should be a wrestling match between father and son? Particularly when the son said, “Ah, I asked for the lamb for the sacrifice. You said God will provide. So I’m the provision? Ehh? Thank you! You’ve lived your life till 120, I’m just starting my own – you want to kill me! What kind of a father are you? I go!” But Isaac surrendered. You will surrender to God this year (Amen!) I know the ‘Amen’ to that one will be low but whether you like it or not  its going to happen. (Amen!) It is my own personal decree for you. You will surrender to God this year! (Amen!)

What is an altar? An altar is a covenant meeting point between God and man/ A place where God and man will meet. In Genesis 28:16-22 Jacob was running away from home because his brother Esau was saying, “Ehh, my father will soon die and then I will kill you for stealing my blessing!” As he was running he got tired and then he slept and that night he had a dream. He saw God on the top of a big ladder and he saw angels ascending and descending and God spoke to him, gave him some fantastic promises. He woke up afraid, “Eh! God is here! This is the gate of heaven and God spoke to me – wretched fellow like me, fraud like me! ” He said, “God, I promise, this stone that is my pillow will become our meeting place. I’m coming back O Lord.  When I return, you will know that you have spoken to the right person.” God is going to become proud of somebody here this year because of an altar – a meeting place between God and man.

And there is one thing about the altar – whenever God and man are about to meet at the altar both will come with a gift. The gift that man comes with must be such an expensive gift that it cannot be called an offering, it has to be called a sacrifice. David said, I cannot offer anything to God that costs me not. It has to be a sacrifice. When God is coming to the altar to meet with man, because of who He is  – the All –Sufficient One , He never comes  with one gift. He comes with many! There was an altar that God himself raised and we call it the Cross. Whenever God is coming to the Cross to meet a man, He first of all offers you , His only begotten Son. And it doesn’t stop there. Romans 8:32 says He will also freely give you every other thing. I’ll give you one or two examples very quickly. Noah built an altar to God and offered a sacrifice –you can read the story inGenesis 8:20-22, 9:1-3 He brought a sacrifice to God at the altar. What did God bring to Noah? If I were God I would say, Well you are thanking Me because I saved your family – that’s enough. No, no, no God said, because  of what you have done, because of this altar, I will never again wipe out the world with a flood. Because of what you have done,  I hereby establish the law of seed time and harvest! Because of what you have just done, I hereby decree that every heat will be followed by a cold, In other words there will never be a time in your life that you will have a problem that will have no solution. Because of what you have just done Noah, I hereby decree that day will always follow night. In other words weeping may endure for a night, there will always be joy in the morning (Amen!) and for somebody here your joy will always be full!

In Jesus mighty Name!

1 Sam.16:1…Tell your neighbour, Tonight is my night! You didn’t say it with confidence! … 1 Sam.16:1

And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.

Last month we began to discuss this particular passage as we began to look at anointing for greatness and we covered some very good grounds. We said for example that God was telling Samuel to forget the past because He wanted to do something new and that he should fill his horn with oil because it is time for anointing. and then we went on to say, the Lord said I have provided me a King .. that God is the great provider that He has provided for all and  now

person. And then finally He found one. And then after He found that person, according to His word, He said, I have found David, my servant. So we said, God says He’s looking for a king who will also be a servant. Not only a servant of the people of God, but a servant of God Himself. Then the Bible tells us that He sought himself a man, He found one, then He chose Him then we said, Who will God choose? And we tried to answer that question also. We said whoever God will choose, it’s going to be by grace and grace alone. But that we said, different people respond to grace in different ways. And we gave the examples of Noah, Abraham, David and Solomon. As examples of those who responded positively to the grace of God – that they all built altars unto God. And then we said, What is an altar? We said an altar is a place of surrender and a place that is a covenant meeting point between God and man and we gave examples of what will happen when man and God meet at the altar. We said when a man is coming to the altar he will bring a sacrifice to God and the sacrifice is an offering that will be so expensive that it will be called a sacrifice. And then when God comes to the altar, because He is the Jehovah El Shaddai, the God who is more than enough* He doesn’t bring just one sacrifice, He brings plenty. At the altar there is an exchange. And we gave examples and then we invited some of us to come to the altar and meet with Almighty God!. All of you who came to the altar with your sacrifice, the Almighty God! will respond! (Amen!) And He will bless you beyond measure. (Amen!)

Now I want to continue my study on this particular passage – that God sought for a man, found a man, chose a man and then the Bible says He commanded the man to become king over His people.

Suddenly I heard Daddy speak to me and said, Son, that was a good Bible study, and I began to shake. I began to shake because when the teacher begins to praise the student there is something there. There was nothing I taught that I did not receive from Him. And I know God sufficiently – whenever He begins to praise you, watch out! Check the Bible very well. The day the angel came to Gideon and said, Hey how are you mighty man of valour? What is the next thing that followed? He said, I want you to go and deliver Israel. That day the privacy of Gideon ended. If God calls your name alone, get ready for something. The day He said, Moses, Moses… the next thing that followed was Moses, I want you to go to Pharaoh. When He said that was a good Bible study, I said, Huh –huh, what is the next thing?

And then, thank God, He said, You are going too fast; there are several things in 1 Sam.16:1 that you are about to miss. Go back to the beginning and He said, let us forget about Saul, let’s look at everything from there on: Fill thy horn with oil. What do you see here? I looked at it closely. I saw horn. I saw oil. I saw fill. And He said is that all you see? I looked a little more closely and I saw thy – thy horn and suddenly I saw – the horn belongs to Samuel. The oil belongs to God. Tonight brethren, the horn that will touch your head may belong to man, the oil that will touch your head belongs to God. (Amen!) I say the oil that will touch your head belongs to God. We will come to that one later.

And He said, what next do you see? And I saw the word “go”… go, go, go, go, … what does ‘go’ mean? Number one it means the light has turned green. It simply means – the way has opened, for somebody here tonight the way has opened. I say the way has opened. Let me hear you say: My way has opened! Say it loud and clear…. Let somebody give a big shout to the Almighty God!

“Go!” means, the way has opened. You see when your day comes, the light goes green. for example, Eccl.3:1-8 tells us specifically that God has a time for everything. God has a season for everything. And then Psalm 102:13 the Bible says, the time to favour Zion, the set time has come. The set time to favour Adeboye has come! The time to favour somebody here tonight has come!

A set time! A time that had been fixed. Those of you who have alarm clock when you want the clock to wake you at 5 o’ clock you set the alarm for 5! The alarm is about to ring for somebody here tonight (Amen!) If you read Genesis 18:1-14, after 25 years that God had promised Abraham a child through Sarah, the light turned green for Abraham. He had waited for years but the set time came. When you read 1 Sam.1:9-17 You will discover that Hannah had been going to Shiloh for years. That one particular year her set time came. The light turned green for her. When you read Luke 1:5-17 you discover that after several years of serving the Lord, Zechariah and Elisabeth, that the Bible said they were blameless in everything, the Bible said the time came and the light turned green for them. I don’t know who I am talking to here today – the light is going to turn green for you tonight! (Amen!)

In Luke 5:1-11 the Bible tells us that Peter was told by Jesus Christ Himself, the Truth himself, the original prophet Himself told Peter, you will cease to be a fisherman, but you will become a fisher of men – but years passed! Peter waited for the day when he would become a fisher of men. The Bible said that when the day of Pentecost was fully come, suddenly – let somebody say ‘suddenly’ I can’t hear you! – suddenly the Holy Spirit came and that day Peter preached a sermon and won 3,000 souls. He entered into his destiny when the time was fully come. The time has come for somebody tonight. (Amen!) Before you know it, suddenly you will enter into your destiny. (Amen!)

So “Go!” means the light has turned green. But “Go!” is also a command – not a plea, not an advice. It’s a command from who to who? From God to Samuel. And who is the one giving the command? The Commander-in-Chief of the Hosts of heaven. Psalm 24:7-10 calls Him the Lord of Hosts, calls Him the Lord, the Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle, the One who is going to fight your battles for you tonight (Amen!). He’s the One giving the command and the Bible calls Him the One who must be obeyed. Psalm 33:8 & 9, It said Let the whole earth fear before Him because He spake and it was done. The Almighty God! the Commander-in-Chief of the Hosts of heaven is the One commanding now. The One that must be obeyed. Not only obeyed by man but the One who must be obeyed by light and darkness because in Genesis1:3 He said, Let there be light and what happened? There was light! And that’s why tonight the Commander-in-Chief is saying to somebody here, tonight in your life there will be light (Amen!), in your home there will be light (Amen!), in your churches there will be light (Amen!), in your nations there will be light (Amen!) And when He said let there be light He was commanding light to come forth and He was commanding darkness to let go! I decree in the mighty Name of Jesus! that every force of darkness in your life will let you go (Amen!) I thought I will hear a resounding ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

This Commander-in-Chief must be obeyed by man. must be obeyed by light, must be obeyed by darkness.

Not only that. Mark 4:35-41 the Bible says, a man came unto him and said, What manner of man is this? We are talking about Jesus Christ, what manner of man is this that even the wind and the sea obey him? Why did they say so? Because He spoke one sentence. He said to the storm, Peace, Be still and immediately everything was calm – the storm obeyed! Tonight every storm in your life shall be stilled in Jesus Name! (Amen!) I say every storm in your life will obey God in Jesus Name!. But when you say the wind obey him, that means the air you breath obey him and that means from now on as you breath in you will breath in healing (Amen!), you will breathe in health (Amen!) The wind and the sea! That means water must obey Him. So every part of your body which had been giving you trouble where your blood is not functioning well, because they are made of water they shall obey the Lord today. Hypertension will get out of you today. (Amen!) Diabetes will get out of you today. (Amen!) Everything that is in your blood that is not of God, your blood will kill them today (Amen!)

Light obeys Him, darkness obeys Him, the wind obeys Him, the sea obeys Him. According to 1 Kings 17:2-7 birds obey Him and that’s good news you see because according to 1 Kings 17:2-7, God gave instructions to birds to take food to Elijah twice a day – bread and meat. Everybody knows that birds love bread and ravens in particular love meat. But they did not eat the food sent to Elijah on the way and they did not miss the address. There is no way your miracle will get lost in transit (Amen!) And I hereby decree that every evil bird that had been pursuing you, from today they will leave you alone. (Amen!) And I am decreeing also that every dove will bring peace into your home. (Amen!)

And then Matthew 17:24-27, tells you the story that one day the task master asked Peter, what about the tax for your master? So Jesus said to Peter, In order that we don’t offend them, go to the river, cast your hook, the first fish that you catch, open it’s mouth there will be a gold coin there take it and use it to pay for you and for me. Everybody knows that fish don’t eat metal but when God commands a fish to swallow gold coin it will obey. Much more than that, when God commands a fish and says, a hook is coming, you must be the first one to swallow the hook, the fish must obey. What I’m telling you is this – there is a river in your village containing a fish. Inside the mouth of that fish is your money. Very soon you will catch that fish. As you begin to fish for souls, as you begin to win people to Christ, the one who has your money in his mouth will be born again in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Fish obey Him. If you don’t believe me read Jonah 1. God told a fish to swallow Jonah and told him., swallow him but don’t digest him, I just want him to stay in your belly for 3 days and 3 nights until he comes to his senses. And when finally Jonah cried to the Lord from the belly of the fish, God commanded the fish and said, Fish, that man you swallowed doesn’t know how to swim so don’t vomit him into the river take him to the beach. I’m telling you that whoever God will use to take you to your breakthrough, He will not stop halfway! (Amen!) I say He will not stop half way! (Amen!)

When you read Numbers 22:22-31 you’ll find the story there of a donkey speaking with the voice of a man because God said, Speak out! Speak out! When you read Daniel 6:20-22 The Bible tells us that Daniel spent the whole night in the den of lions and they did not touch him – why? Because God commanded them to keep their mouths shut! Animals obey Him! That’s why from today when lions see you coming they will run (Amen!) and when dogs see you they will dance. (Amen!)

When you read Acts 12:20-23 you will discover a king who decided to be proud, who began to claim that he is equal to God. The Bible said, God commanded worms to eat him alive. Worms obey him! Ordinary worms obey him! Do you know that every sickness, every disease, or at least majority of sickness and diseases are caused by something they call either bacteria or virus. And if you look at them in the microscope they are like worms, worms obey Him – that’s why I am commanding – every virus in your system – they will die right away. (Amen!) Every HIV, every AIDS that may be in your system they are dead now in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

And then when you read Psalm 29:4-9, the Bible says even fire obeys Him. It says the voice of the Lord creates a path in the fire. That’s why it says in Isaiah 43:2, it says when you are passing through the fire, the fire will not burn you! Those of you who are going through fire now, you will come out alive in Jesus Name! (Amen!). But not only that, you see, Man obeys Him, light obeys Him, darkness obeys Him, wind obeys Him, sea obey Him, storm obeys Him, birds obeys Him, fish obeys Him, animals obey Him, of course lions, angels obeys Him, worms obeys Him, fire obeys Him. But the Bible says even things that are not alive – inanimate objects, they obey him too. In Acts 12:5-11, the Bible says when the angel of the Lord came and took Peter out of prison, doors began to open of their own accord. every door that had been shut against you shall open up of their own accord in Jesus Name! (Amen!). So the One that must be obeyed – obeyed in the heavens, obeyed on the earth, obeyed underneath the earth, the One who says power belongs to me, the One who is the most high, the one who is the Almighty, the One who is higher than the highest, the One who is wiser than the wisest. He is the One who said, Go. He is the one who commands that ways be opened unto you and ways shall be opened unto you. (Amen!).

Thank You Jesus! I’m sure you know that all kinds of healings are already taking place. I mean there is somebody, the Lord says you have this peppery feeling each time you urinate but that’s over now. The Lord said there is somebody who’s finger was burning like fire when you came tonight but check now your finger is normal, the problem is over. He said there is someone here who was feeling a stabbing pain at the back of the neck and the pain has disappeared now. The Lord says there is someone here, the downward trend in your life had been reversed. (Amen!) The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said you will understand when I tell you, when I say an unexpected cool breeze is blowing your way. (Amen!)

So “Go!” means the light has turned green. “Go!” means the commander has given a command. And so “Go!” means there is a messenger coming your way and it is a messenger of joy. There is a messenger coming your way. Who is this messenger? It could just be the Word of God. Psalm 107:20 says He sent His Word and healed them and delivered them out of their destruction. The Word of God is coming to somebody here tonight to heal and to deliver. I say, the Word of God is coming to someone. I didn’t say He is coming to everybody, I say He is coming to someone to heal and to deliver. If you are the one let me hear your Amen!’ (Amen!)

You know the story in Matthew 8:5-13. About the story of the centurion who came to Jesus and said my servant is sick. I want him healed. Jesus said, Okay, I’ll come and heal him. He said, No, no, no I’m not asking you to come. Send Your Word. Just one word. Send a messenger. Let him bring the healing to me. I don’t know who is that precious fellow to you. Even if that fellow is not here tonight, the messenger of peace will reach the fellow there! (Amen!) In Matthew 15:21-28 this woman from, the woman we call the Syro-Phonecian woman came to Jesus and said, Help me, my daughter is grievously vexed of the devil. The daughter wasn’t there. When Jesus said, Go! Your daughter is made whole! Before she got home the daughter was made whole. Every problem waiting for you at home will be solved before you get home. (Amen!)

In 2 Kings 5:1-14 When Namaan came to Elisha expecting to be healed he said, I thought the man of God will come out and lay his hands on me. But what did the man of God do? He sent a message to him. “Go!” Jump into river Jordan, 7 times. And you’ll be made whole. He sent his word and the word healed him. Every ‘but’ that is in your life, I send the Word of God to them tonight. I command every but in your life to disappear in Jesus Name! (Amen!) There is a messenger coming, it could be the Word of God, it could be an angel – like the angel that called Peter out of prison or that brought food to ‘Elijah or it could be ordinary wind, the wind of God Because in Exodus 14:21-28…..

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, there is a broken bridge in your life. He says I will repair that bridge in your life . (Amen!) Thank You Lord! That’s a big one let’s give the Lord a big round of applause Thank You Father!

In Exodus14:21-28 when the Almighty God was going to create a way for the children of Israel in the Red Sea, He sent His wind. He sent the East wind, the wind that blew all night and created a path for the children of Israel to pass through. Let somebody say, Let the wind blow! Say it one more time: Let the wind blow! When the wind of God blows, then definitely the light will turn green because where there was no way before suddenly there will be a way. All of you who thought that the end had come, today there’ll be a new way for you! I say there will be a new way for you! (Amen!)

There’s a messenger coming. It might be His Word. It might be His angel. It might be His wind – the Holy Spirit. But then He might come himself. In Daniel 3:23-27, when they took Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego to the fiery furnace, He didn’t send an angel, He didn’t send a word – He came Himself and brought them out of the fire. Whoever you are that is in a tight corner now – you are coming out! (Amen!) You will come out tonight! Whether the enemy likes it or not you are coming out tonight! (Amen!)

So “Go!” means there’s a messenger coming, but in this 1 Samuel 16:1 who is the messenger who is coming? His name is Samuel and who is Samuel? Samuel is the kingmaker. In 1 Samuel 9:27 up to 1 Samuel 10:1 we find that he was the one who anointed Saul to be king over Israel, so Samuel is coming, Samuel is the destiny changer because in 1 Samuel 10:9-11 the Bible says the moment Samuel came into the life of Saul, Saul began to prophesy…

but the destiny changer had stepped into the situation. All of you who are destined to fail, your destiny will change for the better tonight. (Amen!) Those of you who are destined to die. You will live! (Amen!) I say you will live! (Amen!) I say you will live! (Amen!)

Let me tell you a story. I’m telling this story – it’s true ..the power of God is here, I’m trying to compose myself. There was this story, a true story. we had a meeting like this in the old, old auditorium and the Word of God came that there was a woman there who was destined to die but because she came God said she will live. We didn’t know who she was. We finished the programme . We left. Now there were these people that this woman bought land from and they didn’t want to give her the papers of the land so they decided to kidnap her and kill her. So they grabbed her, beat her very well, out a tape round her mouth, bundled her into the boot of a car and they were taking her away, far out of the town to go and dump her somewhere where she will die. She was in the boot of a car, beaten unconscious, mouth taped and every police checkpoint they just – you know they settled the boys and they were allowed to go. I’m sure you now what that one means. But then they got to this particular checkpoint and they brought out what they normally would give. And the officer there said, No I want to see what is in your boot. so they doubled the amount. the officer said, No. I’m not taking money, I want to see what is in your boot. After all attempts when they saw, ah trouble, then they jumped out of the car and began to run. Finally the police men forced open the boot and they found the woman there. Those of you who have been destined to die this year because you came tonight I decree you shall live (Amen!) I say, I decree you shall live (Amen!) Alleluia! Alleluia!

I think we have to do something. Glory be to God!

I want the area pastors to come. Quickly. Alleluia! I want you to form a big circle all over the place. Form a big circle. face yourselves but form a big circle – it has to be one big circle that can take every one of you. Thank You Father! It has to be one single circle. You can start as far as this place but make it one single circle… one big circle … Alleluia! Area Pastors only. If you like you can go far to my right but it must be one single circle – not two. If you are behind somebody you are out of tune. You can go behind , I don’t care how far but it must be one big circle. I’m going to count up to 10 after that any body who is not in the front circle is out…… there’s space behind there. One big circle and one circle only. I’m counting up to ten. After that if you are not already in the first circle too bad. Thank You Jesus! Alleluia! Glory be to God!

I can feel the power of the Almighty God! It’s coming so heavy so I want to shed some of it. I want to transfer a bit of it to these Pastors so listen carefully, those of you in that single circle. I’m coming into your midst. I’m going to join hands with you. I will pray for 2 minutes. The current will flow. When the current flows if you feel vibration in your body just rejoice. If your leg goes weak, do whatever you have to do. Thank You Jesus! Pray in tongues for a while. The current is flowing right now. Coming to you now. Coming your way. Go ahead. Open your mouth pray! The current is already flowing……. Alleluia! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Alleluia! Thank You Father! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Lord! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we pray! (Amen!)

Those of you who can still walk go back to your seat now. Go back to your seat. Thank You Jesus! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Thank You Jesus! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Alleluia!

So Samuel is coming. The destiny-changer is coming! So the destiny of somebody is about to change tonight. (Amen!) Who is Samuel? The Oracle of God. 1 Samuel 3:19-20. It said God will not even allow the word of Samuel to fall to the ground. Samuel is someone that when he speaks it is done. Now, Samuel is coming for who? The messenger of God is coming but for who? He’s coming for me of course! Psalm 16:6 says, the lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places, yea I have a goodly heritage. The messenger of God is coming for someone tonight! Who is the fellow? Let me hear you say ‘Alleluia’ (Alleluia)

So the Lord says there is a lot in “Go!” But before we even look further into the other things that are embedded in “Go!”. He said, “Go, I will send you to Jesse.” It means the messenger is coming to someone in particular. Luke 4:25-26 tells us that God…. Thank You Father!

The Lord said there’s someone here tonight, , within fifteen days all your matters will be settled. (Amen!) Thank You Father!

I said Luke 4;25-26, God des not do His things haphazardly. He’s a God of order. It says there were many widows in the land of Israel in the time of Elijah but God sent Elijah to only one – the widow of Zarapheth. In verse 7 of the same Luke 24 it says there were many lepers in the time of Elisha but God sent only to Namaan. 1 Kings 19:15-16 It made it clear that there were many farmers but it was only Elisha that was sent to receive the mantle. There are many thousands of us here tonight. – many thousands but God is coming for someone – a specific somebody – for whom this day is the turning point (Amen!) – if you are the one say it is me! Thank You Father!

The Lord said there’s someone here tonight, , He said those helping you are getting tired of you. He said I should tell you – you will soon be paying them back! (Amen!)

Now, He said, I will send you to Jesse. That tells me one thing straight away – God knows your name. I say, God knows your name. As a matter of fact in Isaiah 43:1 the Almighty God! said, I have called you by your name. I am the one who called you by your name. In Exodus 3;1-4, at the backside of the desert, in the burning bush, God called out the name of Moses: Moses, Moses! Moses must have looked round and said, Who knows me in this wilderness. The President may not know your name. The governor of your State may not even know you exist. Even the GO may not know you are here tonight but God knows your name. You are a VIP with God. Tell your neighbour: You are sitting next to VIP tonight! God is calling the name of somebody tonight. I know He is calling at least 2 people. He’s saying: Adeboye! Adeboye! And then He’s calling somebody else again. God is calling somebody to greatness tonight so He knows your name. That is why, if your name is not the correct one He can even change it. Because the influence of your name upon your life is tremendous. Moses for example means drawn out of water and look at the history of Moses. Everything was water, water – changed water to blood, take the children of Israel through the Red Sea; changed bitter water to sweet; brought water out of a rock and when he couldn’t get to the Promised Land, it was because of water. Water – water – water – because his name is Moses. That’s why if your name is – the devil has got this – you better change that name. Because if the devil has got this then the devil will keep what it has got! If your name is ‘The god of thunder has come home’ you better change it before thunder begins to land! Alleluia!

In Genesis 17:1-16 Ah Thank You Father! God changed the name of Abram to Abraham. He changed Sarai to Sarah. In Genesis 22:24-28, He changed Jacob to Israel. every name that is standing against your destiny shall be altered tonight (Amen!) He knows your name. But more importantly – He knows your father’s name! He didn’t say, Go I will send you to the house of David, even though David was the man he was sending to but He said, I will send you to Jesse! In Isaiah 45:3-4, He said, I have called thee by thy name. I have surnamed you… I’m not just giving you your own name, I gave your father his name! That’s why when the call me Adeboye, Adeboye is not my name – that’s my father’s name! That’s correct! That’s why the elders say that it is a bastard that will point a left finger to his father’s house. In other words, it is a bastard who will belittle his father’s name! Thank God for names! Every child should have his own

Thank God for names. Every child who will belittle his father’s name has a name. What is the name? I can’t hear you? So I thank God for the Redeemed Christian Church of God. I thank God for so many children that we have. I thank God for your beautiful names – Garden of Peace, Mount Zion Parish, Abraham’s Palace …. But I give you 7 days (how many days?) to go and bring down that your signboard and rewrite the name because some of you will write your name in bold letters and then you will write the Redeemed Christian Church of God so little people can’t even see it! 7 days! Take down that signboard – write your Garden of Peace all right and write the Redeemed Christian Church of God in bold letters. Write your Solomon’s Parish – write the Redeemed Christian Church of God in bold letters! How many days do you have? 7 days. I can’t hear you!

Your father’s name – what are the applications? – He’s telling you – I know your origins… There’s one big advantage – because He knows your origins, according to Ps. 90:11-2 the Bible says before the mountains were brought forth – I am God. So that mountain of problem in your life – He knew before they started He has been God.. That’s why Job 28:9 says God overturns the mountains by the roots. He will overturn uproot the mountains from the roots.. every mountain in your life shall be uprooted tonight in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

What we are discussing is so important I can’t stop to tell you – but the Lord has been healing – eyes in particular tonight…. Cloudy eyes, watery eyes, pain inside eyeballs. There’s even somebody here with detached retina which is already refixed by God

Your Dad is very important to u because God says if your Dad is evil you can pay for generations of what he has done wrong. Exod.20:5 God says He can visit the iniquity of the father upon sons unto the 3rd and 4th generations. But when your father is good! Ah, the Bible made clear that for generations you can continue to enjoy the blessings of your father being good. That’s Exod.20:6. And Ps. 37:25 David said, I was young,, now I am old, I’ve not seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread. Your children are not going to beg for bread. (Amen!)

When you read Gen,28:10-15 the Bible says, Jacob was running away from home because he had just cheated his brother – he had just stolen his brother’s blessing. And yet God met him on the way and said, I will bless you! The ground on which you are lying – I will give it to you. Why? Because of Abraham your father. In other words, God was saying, Jacob I know you are a 419 man, I ought too kill you but because of Abraham, your father, instead of killing you, I will bless you. Whatever I have to do to change about you to receive the blessing I will do it. Your father is important to you, very important! Even more important is your spiritual father. Your spiritual father is even more important to you than your biological father! In 2 Kings 2:9-15 we saw Elisha getting a double portion of the anointing of Elijah. Like Pastor, like congregation. If your Pastor is a thief, you are likely to end up a thief. If your Pastor is an adulterer —- ahhh— get ready because there is something called transference of spirit. Not only that – your spiritual father can overrule your biological father. In 1 Sam.16:11 when Samuel asked Jesse : Are these all your children? The way Jesse answered showed that he didn’t consider David fit to be a king but Samuel said, I know he’s your son but he’s mine now and we will not sit down until you bring that boy. There might be children here that your parents don’t want you to be greater than them. I cancel that decree today! (Amen!) Every one of you here today, you’ll be greater than your fathers in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Thank God for Jesus Christ. Alleluia!

Daddy says there is an average student here tonight. He said very soon you’ll become a star (Amen!)

The Lord said there’s someone here tonight, he said you have taken many wrong steps in life, from tonight He will start afresh with you

The Lord said there’s someone here tonight, , He said your tongue just seems too be growing, keeps growing. That’s like sickness you have, your tongue is growing, growing. He said, check, your tongue has returned to normal.. (Amen!)

Ah! Thank You Father! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! I think the miracle is to my left here. Thank You Father! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Father!

Now he said, I will send you to Jesse, the Bethlehemite, you know what that one means? – the messenger of God is coming to a particular home tonight. (Amen!) God knows your village. he knows where you come from. He knows your street and He knows your house number.

Acts 9-11, the Bible says God told Ananias, I want you to go to a particular town. When you get there ask for the street that is called Strait. When you get there ask for the house of Judas. When you get to the house of Judas ask for somebody called Saul, when they say which Saul, tell them it is the Saul that was born in Tarsus… God is sending a miracle package tonight. He’s telling the angel: Go to Nigeria. when you get there ask for the Redemption Camp. When you get to Redemption Camp ask for Adeboye. When they say, Which one? Say, the One that is called Emisoren! The Almighty God! is sending a package to somebody here tonight. That’s why your miracle cannot miss the road. So Samuel is coming – meaning what? It’s a pity I can’t finish that tonight because, you see, the fact that Samuel is coming means 20 things coming. There’s no way I can finish all that but I will just mention maybe 2 things there. Then we’ll pick it up later on….

Samuel is coming! He’s not coming empty-handed He’s coming with a horn full of oil! Which means anointing is coming! Samuel is coming! He’s not coming empty-handed! He’s coming with a horn full of oil! Samuel is coming means anointing is coming! Anointing is coming to the horn of someone tonight! (Amen!) It means the yokes in the life of somebody are about to be destroyed. (Amen!) In Isaiah 10:27 the Bible says anointing destroys the yoke. In Acts 3:1-8, which incidentally was what we discussed at Divine Encounter on Monday, there was a man, for 40 years they had been putting him down by the gate, the Beautiful gate of the temple to beg for alms. Then one day the light went green. he saw two people passing by. He looked to them expecting to receive alms but instead of giving him money….. the Bible says suddenly his legs and his ankle bones received strength and he began walking and leaping and dancing and praising God. Tonight in the life of somebody, there’s going to be walking… (Amen!) there’s going to be leaping… (Amen!) there’s going to be dancing… (Amen!) there’s going to be praising God… (Amen!) Samuel is coming. Anointing is coming! Anointing is coming and pronouncement is coming. Alleluia!

Daddy says there is somebody here, what you are expecting has already arrived! (Amen!)

Samuel is coming. Anointing is coming! Whenever He anoints, He always makes a pronouncement: “Okay, now I have anointed you from now on you are king!” In the same manner when Peter came to that lame man he made a pronouncement: He said, In the name of Jesus of Nazareth rise up and walk. And I’m saying to somebody today, like I said on Monday. I’m saying to somebody here today – rise up, walk! rise up, walk! rise out of sickness! Rise out of trouble! Rise out of poverty! Rise out of sorrow! Rise in the mighty name of Jesus! Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Put your hands together for the Almighty God!! From today you will never sit in sickness again! (Amen!) You will never sit in poverty again! (Amen!) You will never sit in sorrow again! (Amen!) You will never sit in failure again! (Amen!) You will never sit in bondage again! (Amen!) You will walk into health! (Amen!) You will walk into prosperity! (Amen!) You will walk into progress! (Amen!) You will walk into miracles! (Amen!) You will walk into freedom! (Amen!) You will walk into victory! (Amen!) You will walk into joy! (Amen!) Let me hear somebody sout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Go ahead make a joyful noise unto the Lord. This is your day! This is your day! Thank You Father! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Glory be to God! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You! for new anointing. Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Even a dead man can feel the presence of God tonight. That’s why I want to appeal to those of you who are still living in sin – come to him come to God! Sin doesn’t pay. The devil has nothing good to offer you. Come and surrender your life to Jesus. He is the Prince of Peace. He will give you peace. He said come unto me all you that labour and are heavy-laden and I will give you rest. Come to j. He will give you rest. He will give you peace. He will give you joy. Let salvation come to your house today. Those of you who want to surrender your life to Jesus come before I count to 10. Come and surrender your life to Him. 1,2,3….

My Father and my God! I want to thank You for the power in the Word that has brought salvation to these people. Accept our thanks in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Your Word says No man can come unto me except my Father draws him. Thank You for drawing these people. Thank You! that they have not refused Your drawing. Accept our thanks in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Father You promised that whoever would come unto You, You would in no wise cast out. They’ve come to You now. Receive them in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Save their souls in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Forgive all their sins in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Cleanse them in Your Blood in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus Name! (Amen!) And today let salvation enter into their lives (Amen!) From now on Father!, when they cry out You, answer them! Thank You! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Praise the Lord!

Now those of you who are in front alone Let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!) I want you to know that right now there is rejoicing in heaven over you. God is rejoicing because of you right now. And I want to promise you by the grace of God, from tonight I will be praying for you. That is why I need your names, your address and your prayer requests. Make sure the address is correctly given because when I ask God to send your miracles it will be sent to the address that you put down. So if you follow this brother who is waving a piece of wood. He will lead you to where some Pastors are waiting and then they will take this information and then they will bring you back quickly. So will you begin to go now? Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause……. give the Lord a big round of applause!

…..Why don’t you just lift your voice and give Almighty God praise for the salvation of souls – let’s just thank God for salvation, that’s the greatest of all miracles. Open your mouth and thank the Almighty God for the souls that have been saved tonight! Let’s lift our voices to the Almighty God and praise Him. Go ahead praise Him, praise the Almighty God!!

The Word of God says, as you have said in my ears so shall I do unto you. So lift your hands and say, I shall receive power…. or put it in a better way and say, I have received power! Say it as if you mean it – power to deliver! power to set the captives free! So shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

Several years ago I was in the city of Ilorin and for several months, my plight when everyone is sleeping – I keep on crying to God, Father! give me power, I don’t want to be an ordinary Christian. Give me power to do your work. Give me power. And then one night God spoke and said, “Shut up!” Even though shut up wasn’t a very good thing to hear, but I was happy. I was happy that at long last He heard and is replying. God has heard somebody here tonight (Amen!) I said God had heard somebody, I didn’t say everybody, l I said, someone – who is the someone? Let me hear you say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

He said the power that I’ve given you what have you done with it? Which power? If I’ve got it I won’t be asking for it. And He said what is in Acts 1:8 “Ah, but you shall receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you….” “Have you been baptised in the Holy Ghost?” I said, “Yes!” Then you have received power. Thank You Lord, next time I see somebody I’m going to lay hands the fellow and according to Your Word the fellow is going to be healed! The very following day. There was somebody in my sitting room. The child had been sick for 2 weeks. Had not slept for two weeks so the doctor had sent the mother home and said there is nothing we can do. And a member of the church told her: Bring the child to our Pastor, he will pray for the child, the child will be healed.. I don’t know why he didn’t pray for the child himself. She came and said , This is why we have come. Something told me: But you said the next fellow you see, you are going to lay hands ion them and they will be healed. I said, That was last night. This is daylight, not night! But there was no where to run to. The child was already waiting. So they handed over the child to me and I began to pray and normally I pray with my eyes closed and as I was praying, suddenly the child went limp. I said, ohhh, the child had died but when I opened my eyes, the child was sleeping and that was the end of the sickness. Glory be to God! for ever more! Why am I telling you this story? Because when you leave here, every sick fellow you meet you will lay hands on them (Amen!) and they will recover! I didn’t hear your Amen. I know some of you will say, “Me? Can that happen to me?” The answer is yes and it is going to happen to you beginning from tonight. Let me hear your ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

1 Samuel 16:1 God said to Samuel: Fill your horn with oil. Fill your horn with oil. God could have said, to Samuel. I want to send you to the house of Jesse to anoint me a new king there. There fore fill your horn with oil and go. But instead God said, “Fill thy horn with oil and go, I will send you to Jesse. How come God started the statement with ‘Fill your horn with oil’? It is because of something called the Law of Priority. The most important thing in a man’s heart is the first thing he will say when he speaks. The Bible says, Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Whatever God considers the most important that’s what He will say first.

In the beginning before He began to create animals and birds and human beings the first thing He said was – Let there be light. And I’m saying one more time today, in the life of somebody, There will be light! I say that there will be light. If you are the one that God has sent me to tonight, and the devil is trying to cause you to doze, there shall be light! I say there shall be light. And every force of darkness shall be dispelled in Jesus Name!. There is something called the Law of Priority and that means what is Number 1? There has to be number one before there is number two. Let me give you an illustration very quickly. One day I came home from office. My wife was talking to a very important person. And when I say very important I mean very, very important person. But as soon as I came in my wife told the very, very important person, Please excuse me. My husband has come. So she left the very, very important person, to come and attend to me, an ordinary Pastor. We greeted. We prayed together. We settled the issue of what I will eat before she went back to the very, very important person. Why? Because even though I’m an ordinary Pastor, after God, I am the next one. as far as Mummy G is concerned. And as far as I’m concerned. After God, Mummy G is next. Was the very, very important person angry? No! As a matter of fact what he said was that he wished his own wife were there that day and see how a wife should give priority to the husband. In every man’s life there should be priority. There should be somebody who is Number 1. who is your Number 1? I can’t hear you! Jesus! say it loud and clear! If you haven’t put God as Number 1 you better do so tonight because like I told you earlier, the horn may belong to Samuel but the oil belongs to God. If God is not your Number 1 you can pour a gallon of oil on your head, nothing will happen! If God is your Number 1 as the oil of anointing is touching your head tonight you shall receive power. I didn’t hear your ‘Amen’ to that.

But if God is your Number 1 then you have to treat him as Number 1. You must not say God is my Number 1 by mouth only.

I have told you that this year by the grace of God, I am going to be coach. I will tell you the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth! Before the end of this year by the power in the name of Jesus, you will become commandos for Jesus Christ! The devil will see you coming and the devil will run in Jesus Name!

If God is your Number 1 then Proverbs 3:7-10 It said , Don’t be wise in your own eyes. You must know that God is wiser than you. it said you are to put your trust in God. If God is your Number 1 it says you must honour Him. How do you honour Him as Number 1? It said by honouring him with your first fruit. If He’s your Number 1 your first fruit must go to Him! If you treat Him as Number 1, it said God will respond. It said there will be blessing that your home will not be able to contain. There are people who want to prosper but they don’t want to follow the pathway of God. It’s not going to work. It has to be according to the basic principles of God. I ask you one more time – who is your Number 1? Say it loud and clear! Honour Him with your first fruits and He said He will respond. I have always settled the rest of the year by what I do at the beginning of the year because I give God my first fruit. That’s why for more than 30 years now, I don’t spend for the doctor. And by the grace of God I’m not going to spend for the doctor until I see Jesus. So shall it be for you in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

After God comes your family. After your family comes the church. After the church whatever else you want can put down. Now when God said, Fill your horn with oil, He’s telling Samuel it is urgent, urgent that we start this story with the anointing. Before I say go, go to the house of Jesse, before I tell you what you are going to do there, Fill your horn with oil. Anointing is urgent – God made it clear to me: You need to be anointed this year – urgently because certain things are going to happen this year – good things for the anointed and God have mercy on those who are not anointed!

I’ll tell you another story. Tell your neighbour: I hope you are listening. This is your night so I hope you are listening. Years ago, one of our Pastors was pasturing in a town not far from here, a place that was noted for witchcraft of the highest degree. Exactly – their witches fly during daytime. I think you know the place. The Pastor was there with his wife and one day God spoke to me and said, “Son, ordain the wife of the Pastor and do it urgently.” I said, “Yes Lord.” That’s my first reaction “… but Lord this woman, everything I know about her, she does not qualify for ordination! Everything I’ve heard about her! God said, “I know. Anoint her all the same. Not because of her but because of you because the forces of darkness are closing in on her. They don’t want to kill her. They just want to run her mad. If the wife of your Pastor runs mad, you will not be able to rest. Anoint her, to keep the forces of darkness away.” I don’t know who God is talking to tonight but power is coming on you. The forces of darkness will see you and they will run.

In Exodus 3:1-10 the fire burned first before God said to Moses, Go and face Pharaoh. In Matthew 3:16-17 the Lord Jesus was baptized in the Holy Spirit first before He went into the wilderness to go and face the devil. Power is coming on you tonight and then whatever the enemy may want to try this year, the devil would have lost the battle. (Amen!) And that’s why the message that my daughter brought you, saying that you shall receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you, I’m believing God for you that from now on your testimonies will be different. (Amen!) Your testimony will be 2 types. You will be telling about what God has done for you and you’ll be telling about what God has done through you because God will use you to heal, He will use you to deliver, He will use you to set the captives free. (Amen!)

You say, Me? I told you that’s how I began. I began to practice. I started with my children. You shall lay hand n the sick and they shall recover. Whenever any of my children had headache I would get – I don’t know what they call those things, whatever name they call it – I would get this thing ready. I think they used to call it APC in those days. And then I would lay hand on the child: Be healed in Jesus Name! and I’d be waiting to see if nothing happened, so I can give him APC. That was the level of my faith then. But God met me at that level of faith. Every time, it was either the child would fall asleep before I could give him APC or he will just run out and begin to play football. And then I began to practice with my friends, those who will not tell if I fail. Today by the grace of God, I can preach, I can lay hands on anybody anywhere in the whole world. You will go home from here tonight and begin to practice – you will lay hands on your children – they will be well! You will lay hands on your co-workers – they will be well! By the time you come back in March you will have wonderful testimonies. If you believe that say ‘Amen’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

The Lord said to Samuel, “Fill your horn” because as far as God us concerned there is no half measures. His Name is Jehovah El-Shaddai, the God who is more than enough! That’s why David in Psalm 23:5 he said, Thou anointest my head with oil. My cup runneth over. I don’t know who God is going to anoint tonight with overflowing oil but the cup of somebody is going to run over tonight in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

Eph.3:20 says our God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we ask or think………..there’ll be this extra – 12 baskets extra that you are going to carry home tonight in Jesus Name! (Amen!). When He entered into the boat of Peter, the Bible tells us that not only was the boat of Peter full of fish but the boat of his neighbour was also full of fish! Not only were the 2 boats full of fish they were sinking under the weight of the fish! The kind of blessing that will cause you to say to God: This is too much! is coming your way in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

In 2 Chronicles 20:20-25 after God gave victory to Jehoshaphat he still spent 3 days bringing in the wealth of the enemies! 3 days bring in the wealth of the enemies! The wealth of your enemies will be transferred to you! (Amen!) And its going to take you 3 days to bring them in. I used to say it, very few people could take it, that a day is coming, at least one or two of my children, when they take their money to the bank, the bank will close to other customers for 3 days because they need 3 days to count your money. How many people can receive that one? We need that kind of blessing if we are to spread the gospel throughout the world.

So Samuel was coming with horn full of oil. David was about to have a divine encounter, a divine encounter of a lifetime. David was about to receive the first dosage of anointing that was going to change him from being a shepherd boy to becoming a king but not only that, that would keep on propelling him until he would be called the father of the King of Kings. Let me show you a passage in the Bible. Matthew 1:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David.. son of who? I can’t hear you… No, finish it – the son of David, the son of Abraham…..

Talking about priority again – do you notice that they mentioned the name of David before they mentioned the name of Abraham! Why? Because David received the anointing. The anointing catapulted him mightily that even Abraham had to take second place. Many of you don’t know what is about to happen to you tonight. And let me tell you one thing. All those that think they had left you behind, you are going to overtake them. I say you are going to overtake them. (Amen!)

An event was about to take place in Bethlehem. Samuel and David were about to collide – in Bethlehem, something was going to happen in Bethlehem. The fact of which is going to go down the ages. For years and years and years to come… even until somebody will be crying on the road to Jericho – Jesus thou son of David have mercy on me … because of what happened in Bethlehem a blind man in Jericho, hundred of years later, got his sight back. Because of what is going to happen tonight – for years to come the power of God will still be flowing (Amen!) – it will be flowing in your blood, flowing in the blood of your children, in the blood of your grandchildren and great grandchildren. That is why I pity those who are not here tonight, it’s a pity because what is happening here tonight cannot be duplicated. TG I am here. If you are here and you are happy I think you should shout Alleluia!

I told those of you who were here in January, I say that I know many of you think that March is the time for anointing, Special Holy Ghost service, oh yes March is coming, something great is coming in March, something wonderful is coming in March, something we’ve never seen before is coming in March…. but tonight God is going to do something so that when you are coming in March you will come with your head lifted high. (Amen!) You know in every man’s life there is a day that you will know that you know that you know that you are now a victor. Tonight is that night! I say tonight is that night.

Anyway Samuel was coming. David was coming even though David didn’t know what was going to happen. He was busy in the bush, singing: the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He didn’t know what was coming. Even Samuel didn’t know who exactly he was going to anoint. But then where did they meet, where exactly is their meeting point? 1 Samuel 16:2-5 Samuel said to God: “You asked me to go to Bethlehem to go and anoint a new king when Saul is still alive! God why don’t you just tell me it is time for me to die because when Saul hears about it he will call me a coup-plotter. He will kill me!” God said, “There is a way round that. Take a bullock. Go to Bethlehem. Tell them, I’ve come to worship the Lord and then call Jesse and his sons to the sacrifice.|” The meeting didn’t actually take place in Jesse’s house. It took place at the altar of sacrifice.

We will learn more about this thing as we go along because when Samuel arrived in Bethlehem the Bible says the whole town trembled. One man came and the whole city was trembling. That is what is called power – divine power and I am decreeing for someone here today: when you come to your town, witches will run, wizards will sleep, evil doers will tremble! And they asked Samuel – Have you come in peace? Because we know if you have come in trouble then we are in trouble. We know you are a destiny-changer. Have we offended God? Have you come to pronounce a judgement on us? He said, No, no, no.. I’ve not come because of you. I’ve come to worship God. I’ve brought my sacrifice with me and I want to invite a particular family. so they met at the altar.

It is at the altar that destinies are changed. That is why I was teaching you about the altar last month. If you were not here last month – get the tape. So they met at the altar and things changed; Changed completely; changed irrevocably. David became king, never to become anything less than king again! Whoever you are that God is talking to, the changes in your life tonight is going to be permanent. (Amen!) I said they will be permanent. let me talk for another 2 minutes on the altar before we go ahead.

How often can a man come to the altar? It is as often as you want to meet with God. when you come to the altar He comes to meet you. As often as you want to discuss with God or you want something from God, you go and meet Him at the altar. David said in Psalm 27:4 He said, One thing do I desire of the Lord and one thing will I seek after, I just want to sit down in His house permanently. I don’t want to be coming to the altar I want to stay there permanently! Why? Because He knew that that was where his destiny was changed. And if you read 2 Sam6:12-13 the Bible tells you that when they were bringing the ark of the covenant into the city of David, as soon as those carrying the ark took 6 paces, David will say. “Stop, I want to make another sacrifice!” Another 6 paces, David will say. “Stop, I want to make another sacrifice!” Another 6 paces, “Stop, I want to make another sacrifice!” When they finally took the ark into where it will stay : I want to make another sacrifice! Those who know how to trade with God, they are altar people – constantly going to the altar, bringing their sacrifice with them; knowing that God will never let them go back empty-handed.

How often can I come to the altar? God said in His Word Deut.16:16-17 At least three times a year you must come before him, come to the altar and He said, Don’t come empty-handed. It’s there in Deuteronomy 16:16-17 – at least 3 times a year He expects you to come before Him at His altar bringing your sacrifice with you and going back with what He has for you.

So Samuel came. when he got to the altar the man he was looking for was not there. He thought it must be this tall boy, God said no. well if it is not number one it must be the second fellow. God said no… until he got to the seventh and God kept on saying no. So he turned to the man and said, I asked you to bring your family. Are these all your sons. So he said, Well there remains one but he doesn’t qualify to be king. Check these seven again. The man of God said, I’ve checked them and God has said no. That one that you say remains, go and bring him. Let me tell you brethren. There is not a single one of you that is here by accident tonight. You are here because God summoned you. some of you may think you came for something else – no, you have come to keep an appointment with destiny. Tonight the Almighty God! the One who controls the heaven and the earth is going to do something in your life that you will never forget again. stand on your feet and shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

There’ll be a session of serious prayer later tonight but I don’t want you to pray that prayer before the oil has already reached your head. As the Pastors begin to prepare the oil of anointing I want you to talk to God and say, Father, don’t let my head refuse your oil! Talk to the Almighty God!! Father!, tonight don’t let my head refuse Your oil! Don’t let my head refuse Your anointing! Talk to the Almighty, talk to Him now! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

My Father and My God! Your Word says that whatever is not of faith is sin. We approach Your altar in faith tonight that as this oil will touch our heads Your power will come upon us (Amen!) Your anointing will come upon us (Amen!) Yokes will be destroyed in our lives (Amen!) and we will go in turn and begin to destroy yokes in the lives of others (Amen!) Father!, put Your seal on us and let this day be a turning point for the better in all our lives in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen!

Now we will be seated. The Pastors will spread all over the place as they normally stand when they want to minister and then you will come in an orderly fashion, row by row to be anointed. After the Pastors have finished with you, my assistants will anoint the Pastors and then I will anoint my assistants and then we will go and talk to God. In the meantime there’ll be worship songs going on. As soon as you are anointed, don’t waste a minute, go back to your seat and continue to talk to God. remember a day like this comes only once in a lifetime. Don’t waste a single minute of it. There must be no rushing. We will not stop until we have anointing everybody. The senior Pastors are very many as you can see so it is not going to take a long time. so you sit down until it is your row’s turn. So row by row we come – get anointed – back to our seats and continue to pray until everybody had been anointed. so we’ll have some music and row one can become to come.#

The day that Saul was anointed he began to prophesy. for the next few minutes you are going to prophesy to yourself, to your family, to your business, to your town, your local area, your state, your nation…. those of you yet to be anointed, come here now. If there’s anyone still left let them come, let them come, come this way …. Prophesy to yourself! Say it loud and clear – that it’s going to be well with me, I will prosper, I will go from strength to strength, from glory to glory, from joy to joy. It’s going to be well with me, it will be well with my children, well with my family, well with my wife, I will never know death again, I will never know sorrow again. Come those of you are yet to be anointed, come this way come, come to the back of the altar. If there’s anyone left come to the back of the altar.

Prophesy for your family, prophesy to your child, prophesy to your state, prophesy to your nation: no more tragedy, no more violence, no more sorrow, no more problems – prophesy in the mighty Name of Jesus! that all will be well now that whatever you touch will prosper, that there’ll be a way for me where there was no way before, the power of God will work mightily in my life. every yoke in my life, I destroy in Jesus Name! – go ahead, prophesy to yourself. As you say it so shall it be. My joy will be full from now on. I will never know sorrow again, sickness, disease will not knock at my gate – it is well with me now. in the mighty Name of Jesus! I will be singing songs of victory, songs of joy, songs of success, I will never know sorrow again, none of my family will ever suffer again. None of my family will go to hell! Oh yes, they will all know salvation. The Lord will save every member of my family! Every member of my town shall be save! Nigeria shall be saved! Africa shall be saved! The world shall be saved! there’ll be no more barrenness, no more unfruitfulness; no more poverty, no more sorrow, I prophesy in the mighty Name of Jesus! So shall it be. So shall it be. Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name!

I hereby decree that every word you have uttered shall be granted in Jesus Name! Every prophesy that had gone out of your mouth shall be fulfilled in Jesus Name! (Amen!) It will be well with you. (Amen!) It will be well with your family, (Amen!) it will be well with your states. (Amen!) It will be well with your nations. (Amen!) It will be well with your churches. (Amen!) The anointing of God in your life shall never run dry. So shall it be. So shall it be. So shall it be. In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Put your hands together for the Lord Jesus Christ and then you may be seated.

Now I’m surprised that there are some people yet to be anointed. Where were you? Let them come, let them come, let them come please! don’t stop them. Let one or two Pastors please stay on at the back of the altar and attend to all these people, I know there is quite a crowd. It’s possible that while the whole thing was going on some people were in the dream land. And they woke up, they said, What happened? they said they’ve anointed everybody. They said What! Now they are here. So Attend to all of them now. Glory be to God!

…..You know once in a while when the Word of God is going out, somebody will know , apart from everyone else that the word is directed towards him or her. God had been speaking to someone again and again, since the beginning of this evening session that you are the one I’m talking about. Who is that fellow by the way? If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). if you are the one I believe you will want to say thank you to Jesus so we will have our thanksgiving service. The ushers will help us as we give our thanksgiving offering to the Lord. we will remain seated and dance to the Lord as the band will give us some music to accompany giving our thanksgiving offering.

Alleluia!

I want you to lift your voice to Him loud and clear and say, Father, Let today be a day to be forever remembered in my life. Go ahead!

Shake hands with one or two people and say, I am destined for greatness. God Bless you! You may be seated!

I want to appeal to you tonight that you remain completely on the alert, the Almighty God is already moving in our midst and I can assure you before this night is over your joy will overflow. (Amen!) Do I hear your Amen to that?

One of the musicians who sang said, Whatever He has decided to do nobody can stop Him. He has decided to favour someone here tonight. Nobody can stop Him. Lift your hands high and say, “Nobody can stop my blessing!” So shall it be in Jesus Name!! But I want you to please listen to me very closely. What I want to do tonight is bring a message from the Lord which I think is going to prepare you for your greatness. There is a world of difference between information and revelation. There’s a world of difference between knowledge and wisdom. They are 2 different things; Information is knowing what is available, what is around. Information leads to knowledge. And knowledge is very, very important. The book of Hosea 4:6 the Almighty God said, My people perish for lack of knowledge. The Book of Isaiah 5:13it said, My people have gone into captivity because they lack knowledge. You need knowledge. You need information that is why it is very crucial for you that this year, throughout the year you don’t miss any service. You need knowledge. But far, far, far more important than knowledge is revelation because revelation is knowing what to do in order to receive that which is available.

In Acts 16:30 the jailer asked Paul, What must I do to be saved? He already knew that here was something called salvation. That was what Paul was preaching that got him into jail. Now the jailor said, Now I know there is something called salvation. I’ve already got the information about salvation now I need a revelation. What do I do so I can be saved?

There is information and there is revelation. Today in the mighty Name of Jesus! the revelation you need so that you can receive the blessings that God has for you shall be made available to you. I said, shall be made available to you.

For example Psalm 34:1 says, the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.  – that’s information. Everybody knows, whether they admit it or not that the whole earth belongs to God. everybody knows that silver belongs to God, gold belongs to God, abundance belongs to God, the oil under our ground belongs to God, but we need revelation – how do I get my own portion of this abundance that is in the hand of God? It is when you hear God say in Malachi 3:10 that when you bring all the tithes into His house He will open the windows of heaven and pour you a blessing that there will not be enough room to receive, that’s when you have revelation. For example, 1 Peter 2:24 says, by His stripes we were healed … 2000 years ago Jesus Christ has provided for your healing. That’s information. Ask any Sunday School student. He will tell you Jesus is the healer – by His stripes we were healed! That’s knowledge. How do get my healing? It is when you come across Mark 5:34 when Jesus turned to the woman with the issue of blood and said, Daughter, thy faith had made you whole, that you get a revelation Jesus is the healer. How do I get my healing? Daughter… what made her whole? I can’t hear you? Say it loud and clear…

The healer was there, walking around, several people trailing Him. Only one got healed. What is it that that one fellow knew that the others didn’t know? Faith. My faith will make me whole. Every one of you here tonight – with one sickness or the other, in the mighty name of Jesus, your faith shall make you whole. Luke 1:37: for with God nothing shall be impossible. Everybody knows that. That is information. Ask those who are not even a Christian. They will tell you God can do anything. But how do I get my problem solved? I need a revelation. God can do all things, I agree. But I am saying now, I’m not talking about all things – I’m talking about my own things, how do I get my problem solved? Luke 9:23. Jesus Christ said, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. God can do all things. I too can do all things if I believe that’s revelation. That’s revelation.

James 1:17 it says every good gift and every perfect gift comes down from the father of lights – every good gift – fruit of the womb, promotion, success, deliverance, victory, joy – every good thing comes from the Almighty God. How do I get my own share? That’s why I need revelation for that. Psalm 84:11 says, No good thing will God withhold from them that walk uprightly. Every good thing that you need, because you are here tonight, the Almighty God will give it to you.

So it is one thing to have information. It is a better thing to have revelation. But then even having revelation is not enough to guarantee that you will get what you want because you could have information and have revelation and refuse to act. It takes revelation and action to bring what revelation says is available into your hand. When the Jailer said, What must I do to be saved? They told him believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved – you and your household also. He believed and he was saved and joy flooded his home. But in Matthew 19:16-22 A rich young ruler came to Jesus and said, Master, what must I do to inherit eternal life? In other words, he’s asking the same question as the jailor. What must I do to be saved? And the Lord said, Well you know the laws: Do this, don’t do this don’t do that….He said, I’ve been doing that since I’ve been born and the Lord said that’s wonderful, But one more thing remains – Go and sell all that you have and come and pick your cross and follow me and then you will have eternal life. He had revelation. He knew what he must do…The jailor asked – What must I do? They told him and he did it and he went home with joy. The young ruler asked, What must I do? He was told and he didn’t do it and he went home with sorrow. There is somebody here today you will go home with joy. I didn’t hear your ‘Amen’.

What I’m going to do tonight, maybe in the next one hour, I will give you information concerning your destiny; I will give you revelation concerning your greatness; It will then be left for you whether you are going to do what you are expected to do or you will not do it. My own job will be to inform you, to teach you, it will be up to you to act. Even the best coach in the world can only take a horse to the river, he cannot force a horse to drink. Tonight by the special grace of God, I will bring you to the river of greatness, will you drink? I can’t hear you? Will you drink? Thank You Father!

While I was talking the Lord was healing. There is someone here for example who could not open his mouth wide, I think you had an accident – check now your mouth is as wide as possible you can open it.

And the Lord said there is someone here, your lungs had been misbehaving. God said He has replaced them.

And the Lord said there’s someone here, He said I should tell you, Out of your present ashes, he will bring out glory. (Amen!)

And He says there is a young fellow here, he is slightly retarded. The Lord asked me to tell you from now on it will be full recovery. (Amen!).

He said there is someone here, almost every night, you have to struggle in your sleep. The Lord asked me to tell you, the struggle is over. Thank You Father!

Now let’s go on to information. Information Number 1 – What is greatness? Several people have different definitions for greatness but they all agree on one thing – that is to be great is to be outstanding, head and not tail, to be above and not be beneath. So to be great means to be outstanding and I decree to you now, beginning from today, in every area of your life you will be outstanding,, You will be outstanding in joy! You will be outstanding in success! You will be outstanding in victory! You will be above – you will never be beneath. I think that ‘Amen’ should be a little louder. (Amen!)

Now what is destiny? Destiny simply means, God’s purpose for your life. You are not in this world by accident. No, no, no, no, God doesn’t do anything just for the fun of doing it. Everything he does is for a purpose. You were born for a purpose. Jesus Christ said in John 18:37, He said, To this end was I born. For this cause came I into this world. I came for a purpose. You too came for a purpose! Romans 9:17

Oh Thank You Father! The Lord said there is a woman who is still weeping in the congregation. The Lord asked me to tell you, dry you r eyes because your days ofweeping are over.. Your days of weeping are over. Let’s praise the Almighty God in behalf of that woman Thank You Father!

Romans 9:17 The Scripture says concerning Pharaoh, even for this same purpose have I raised you up, that I might show my power in thee and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. God says Pharaoh I created you so that I can drown you. I raised you up, I made you king of the whole earth so that when I drown you the whole earth will hear that there is a God who is the great king of all kings. You were created for a purpose. Every one here – you  were created for a purpose.

Thank You Father! O Lord Thank You! The Lord said I should ask somebody here tonight how do you want your twins – your twins? Do you want two boys, a boy and a girl or two girls? How do you want your twins? Give the answer back to the Lord.

That’s information number one. To be great is to be outstanding. And destiny is the purpose of God for your life, so destined for greatness means the purpose of somebody here tonight is to be great. Who is that fellow by the way? If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Information number 2 – what are you destined to be? Just by listening to our brother from France – that I’ve never met. I’m seeing him for the first time on stage tonight so he has no way of seeing my notebook – but the Holy Spirit spoke through him. The Holy Spirit read my notes and put it in his mouth because what I wrote down here is – you are to be so great as to change the world. How many world changers are here tonight? Do you believe you are one of us? Let the Almighty God hear your shout of Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

How do I know that God created you to be a world-changer? I know because the world is full of darkness and there’s only one way to change darkness. How do you change darkness? By bringing in light. And Matthew 5:14-16 the Almighty Jesus said you are the light of the world. Who was He talking to? How many lights of the world are here? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ loud and clear (Amen!)

Deut. 28:12 It is written concerning somebody here, you will lend to nations, in other words you will be the one who will change the poverty of the world to riches.  That may be difficult for you to swallow because right now, you yourself you even need financial help. But let me guarantee you one thing. If God says you shall lend to nations – so shall it be. (Amen!) I say so shall it be. How do I know? Because it is written: forever O Lord they word is settled. What He has said, He will do. I say, what He has said, He will do. You are to be a world-changer. You are to take the good news of Jesus Christ to the whole world. Wherever you go, as you present the Lord Jesus Christ, as you present the resurrection and the life, you will change sorrow to joy, you will change sickness to health, you will change death to life, that is how to be a world changer – Thank You Father!

The Lord said there is somebody here who has problem in his blood. The Lord is taking care of that. The Lord said there is somebody here, He said you will understand. He said, I will send my eagle to deal with those birds that are disturbing you. You will understand.

Information number 3: concerning your destiny, certain things don’t matter. Concerning where God is taking you, certain things don’t matter. What are the things that don’t matter? Number 1, you present situation. It doesn’t matter your present situation! Where God is taking you is where He’s taking you! 1 Samuel 2:8 It says God can raise up a beggar from the dunghill and cause him to sit among princes, among kings. Promotion is coming the way of somebody tonight (Amen!) It does not matter where you are now. In the mighty name if Jesus Christ you shall be great. David was a shepherd boy but he was destined to be king. Joseph was a prisoner but he was destined to be the Prime Minister of ‘Egypt. Esther was a slave girl but she was destined to be a queen. Tell your neighbour – I am destined to be great! You are looking to someone who is going to be very great! Your present does not matter.

Number 2: Your past does not matter. If you truly surrender your life to Jesus you will reach your goal. 2 Corinthians 5:17 the Bible say therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature old things are passed away, behold all things have become new. From today everything will become new for you. You better let me hear your ‘Amen!’ for that – thank You Father!

The Lord says there’s someone here, the babies locked up in your womb shall be released. (Amen!)

He says there’s someone here, I believe that one must be me, it said, it shall be said of you that God performs special miracles by the hand of this fellow. (Amen!) If you join me in receiving that one let me hear you say ‘Amen!’.

Information Number 4: God is the decider of destinies. In Jeremiah 1:4-5, the Lord said to Jeremiah, before I formed thee I knew thee while you were still in your mother’s womb I’ve already called you. I’ve already appointed you a prophet to the nations. Your father had nothing to do with it. Your mother had nothing to do with it. The witches around didn’t know anything that was happening. It is God that decides destinies. Before you were born He had already made up His mind and you know what He had decided? Is that it’s going to be well with you. (Amen!) God is a decider of destinies.

That brings us to information number 5. Destinies can be changed because God is free to change His mind. He’s the original majesty does as He pleases in the courts of heaven. Oh Thank You Father!

The Lord says there’s someone here tonight, He says all the doors that have been slammed shut in your face shall be reopened. (Amen!)

Oh Thank You my Father. Daddy says before this year is over there is somebody here who will become a pleasant wonder among his peers. (Amen!)

Thank You Father! Just keep on speaking Lord. It is Your programme do it as you want. Destinies can be changed – 1 Samuel 2:30 He said, I said, I said indeed that your father’s house would stand before me as priests forever. Now I say, be far from me. I said it, now I change my mind because those who honour me I will honour and those who despise me I will lightly esteem. In Numbers 14:26-32 God said to the whole nation of Israel, I say I want to bring you into the Promised Land, You say you are not going, I said fine, you won’t go. I say I will take you there.  I said it before you were born 430 years ago! But when I had already decided I will take you there, now I’ve brought you to the border – you say you are not going! He said, fine. If you say you are not going, you won’t go! Oh, my brothers and my sisters, the good plan of God concerning your life shall not be changed. (Amen!) If there is any evil in your destiny in your life it shall be changed tonight. (Amen!) You better say ‘Amen’ to that (Amen!)

Al right, that’s information. Now let’s take a look at some revelations.  Your greatness can be influenced by your Daddy whether your spiritual father or your physical father – for example, Abraham was great and Isaac his son was very great. Elijah was great; Elishah the spiritual son was very great. Gehazi because he annoyed God became a leper and God said through his servant that everyone born in the line of Gehazi shall be a leper forever. So your Daddy, spiritual or physical, can influence your destiny. That’s revelation. But what is information, what is revelation, the real revelation there? I can’t choose my physical father. That is beyond me. But thank God I can choose my spiritual father.

Choose your spiritual father carefully. Because he can pronounce just one blessing in you that can change your destiny. That’s why wherever my children go they find favour. Because whenever they are going I will say one word, I will say where you are going you will find favour with God and you will find favour with men. And I am saying that to every one of you who happened to be my spiritual child. – beginning from now, wherever you go, you will find favour with God, you will find favour with men. (Amen!)

Revelation number 2 – the enemy cannot change your destiny. The enemy was not there when God was talking a decision. No,no, no,no, no…If they knew you, it was after you were born. God said, Before I formed you, before I put you together at all, I knew you, I’ve decided concerning you while you were yet to be put together. And then Psalm 33:11 It says: the counsel of the Lord stands forever, his thoughts to all generations. It does not matter what the enemy may be planning – you will reach your goal. The Bible says, If God be for us who can be against us? So what is the revelation here? As long as you are on the side of the Lord, you can ignore the enemy. How do I know that? David said, thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. All those who say you will not reach your goal, they will come and bow down to you when you reach the goal. (Amen!) I say they will come and bow down before you when you reach your goal!

But probably one of the most important revelations is that your destiny is in your own hands, for better or for worse – it is in your hands, it is in your hands! I say it is in your hands. Oh Wait a minute I thought you said just now that it is God who decides destinies. Yes but you can influence Him. I say you can influence Him. Prov. 8:17 God says, I love them that love me and those that seek me early shall find me.  What does that one mean? If I were you, I will begin to love God with a great passion. He says He loves those who love Him. So I will love Him passionately so that He to can love me. In Hebrews 11:6 He said, I am  a rewarder of those who diligently seek me so what will I do?, I will seek Him – diligently. And then the Bible says in Isaiah 55:6, It said, seek the Lord while He may be found!

The Lord said there is somebody here, He says as soon as I tell you, you will know, He said I should just tell you, Goliath shall fall. Goliath shall fall. Whatever that means I am sure you know, whoever you are.

Is 55:6 says seek the Lord while he may be found. Call on him while he is near. What does that one mean. Wisdom tells me that there is a time to seek the Lord if I am to find him. There is a time to call on him if I want him to hear me. This year I will seek the Lord. Remember the Lord told us at the beginning that this year is going to be different. It’s a year of foundations, that whatever happens to you this year will determine what happens to the rest of your life. Any child can understand that to mean that this is a year of destiny. I will seek the Lord this year. What about you? Will you seek Him? I will call on the Lord this year because He’s near. Will you call on Him this year? I can’t hear you. I’m going to tell you a story and then we will pray. I’ve not finished my sermon but I can feel the Holy Spirit saying, get out of the way. I can feel the wind of miracles already blowing.

Two men went to consult an oracle and the miracle man told the first one, he said you are going to be a king, big king and that one said, heyyyy, that’s good! Then he turned to the second one and said, you are going to be a servant. So the two of them left. The first one that the oracle says he’s going to be king, went home and sat down and began to enjoy himself, began to call himself “Your Majesty! The second one said, What Have I done?  I refuse! Is there anybody here today who will say, I refuse evil? He said, “I refuse!” He went and bought 2 good cutlasses, gathered all the little things he had left – some maize, some yam, just little, little things and headed straight into the jungle, far, far, away from town, into a no-man’s land and then he began to farm, he will work from morning to evening and as he was cutting the wood he kept on saying: I refuse to die poor, I refuse. When his hand started aching and the body began to get weak he will tell the hand be careful, body be careful, I have made up my mind: I refuse to die poor. How many of you refuse evil tonight? Say it loud and clear: I refuse! I refuse every evil destiny! Very soon he had a very mighty farm! In the meantime the one that the oracle says is going to be king, was sitting down at home and eating and drinking, waiting for the king to die so that they can come and pick him and make him king. Then famine came, famine so severe that there was no food left, then one day a hunter from the town came to where that man that they say was going to die poor had his mighty farm.

I’ve found a place where there is food – everybody in the town came – meantime they had no money left and they wanted food so they told this man, please feed us and become our king. The man they said was going to die poor became the king, the one day somebody came, prostrated before him, looking very hungry, very haggard and said, Please give me food, I will serve you all the days of my life! And this man looked at him – Ah! Are you not the one the oracle said was going to be king. He said: I am the one. The oracle said his own – your destiny is in your hand. How great you are going to be is in your hand. And you will give a little demonstration of that tonight. You are going to pray – now! And I will see how you will pray – your prayer will show me clearly whether you are going to be that majesty who will end up a slave, or you are the one who will say to God tonight, even if it was evil that was destined for me – it has to change tonight. I am going up, I am not going down. Are you ready to pray? Stand on your feet.

You are going to pray now.  In the next few minutes you are going to pray prayers that are going to change your destiny permanently. If you are ready to pray let me first of all hear you shout a big Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Are you sure that’s the kind of shout that will make you great?

I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, If there is any evil in my destiny, change it today – now lift your voice and cry to the Almighty God.

Don’t let my actions lead to the destruction of my own destiny. Please Father, don’t let me destroy my own destiny! Don’t let me destroy my own destiny! Thank You Father! Alleluia!

Brethren, in the plan of God in our lives, many of us are lagging behind. We are not where God expects us to be at this moment. God! Accelerate my progress! Go talk to the Almighty God! Accelerate my progress to greatness! I should have gone far, far beyond where I am now! I am not where You planned for me to be.,.

A height that I cannot even dream possible, take me there O Lord, take me there. O Lord that’s my heart’s cry tonight – a height greater, greater, than I can even dream possible – take me there Lord! Take me to the greatest height that Almighty God can take anyone! Yes Lord! Take all glory for it! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The Bible says, death and life are in the power of the tongue. The Bible says, God says, As I hear in my ears so shall I do unto you. I want you to use your tongue now to prophesy to yourself how great you want to be. Say: In the Name of Jesus, I will be the best, I will be the greatest, I will be the richest, I will do the most for God! I will reach nations for God! I will win millions of souls for God! , I will be the best! , I will be the greatest! , I will be the moat anointed! I will be the most powerful for the Almighty God. Prophesy to yourself. Tell yourself how great you are going to be for the Almighty God!  Thank You Saviour! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you have a few more prayer points. Now there may be some people who were brought here, who were unable to walk on their own and they were carried in, move them a little forward form the crowd because the ministers of God will come down to pray for them now. It is not the end of your own prayer, I’m only talking to those who have special cases to move them a little forward so that the ministers of God can come and attend to them. The ministers of God, as soon as they move forward, please go in and go and attend to them.

I want us now to concentrate all our prayers towards these special cases. Pray for them now that the Almighty God will heal every one of them and make everyone of them whole! Lift your voice and pray for them. Pray for them now! Begin to intercede for them now! That they will become completely whole tonight. Pray for them.

And now before I pray for you I want you to pray for me. Ministers you can begin to return to your positions but I want all of you to stretch your hands towards me and just pray for me. Wish me whatever you wish yourself… In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now I want to pray for you – I want you to lift your hands to heaven and let your ‘Amen’ be loud and clear – In the mighty name of Jesus! (Amen!) In the mighty name of Jesus! (Amen!) Father, I want to thank You tonight for the great things You have already done and for the greater things that you are yet to do. Accept our thanks in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

So shall it be! So shall it be! So shall it be, I say -, – In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

If you receive that let me hear you shout Alleluia!. Lift your hands to the Almighty God and wave it to the most high God. Just say, Father, I thank You. Father, I bless Your holy Name! King of Kings! Lord of Lords! I AM that I AM, the Ancient of Days I thank You, Blessed, blessed, blessed be Your Holy Name! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Blessed be Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty name we have worshipped! (Amen!)

Now go ahead give the Lord a big round of applause… Now we are going to praise God just for few minutes – we will sing, we will dance. In that process I want you to check, all those things you could not do before, you can do now. Check your aches and pains that have gone because God told me that He will heal several thousands tonight and as we begin tossing and dance those of you that have been healed tonight you will dance forward, the Bible says that they overcame the devil by the word of their testimony –just by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimonies so those of you that have been healed tonight by dancing forward you are showing to the whole world that the Almighty God has healed you and the devil will not be able to steal your healing again…. Check them because they are no longer there…….

Beautiful sight however, the sight that God showed me is much more than this which means there are some people who were healed who are hiding in the crowd. I give such people 2 minutes to come forward otherwise I will tell God that they didn’t want the healing that is why they are hiding what You have done. So I will ask God to take back the healing. So those of you who have been healed tonight, I repeat one more time, we will sing another song – 2 minutes make sure you are out here. If He has not healed you, no problem stay in the crowd but if He has healed you by the time we have finished the next song, you should be out here… Let’s have one more song…

All those of you who have been healed tonight let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Alleluia!. Now, I’m coming back to you in a moment. Is there any minister of God here tonight who is excited at what God has done? I didn’t hear your shout before that is why I ask. Alright. Is there any member of the choir who is excited?….. Now if I were to tell you that by this time tomorrow, the grace to be able to do what God has done through me tonight will already be given to you, how loud will be your Alleluia!? All right. That’s the purpose of tomorrow night’s service. It is an impartation service. God wants to give somebody here a birthday present tomorrow. (Amen!) Now I want you ministers to please go among these people. We want you to listen to their testimonies – as many of them as possible. We have time, it’s only after 2. God has not finished yet, don’t think I’ve forgotten, God is still going to anoint your handkerchiefs. I said ministers of God, go among these people, listen to their testimonies and let us hear some of what God has done. Now while we are listening to their testimonies, can we just have some worship songs, solemn worship songs … ministers of God, God bless you, move quickly, I didn’t ask any of you to remain seated. I said go into the midst of these people and get some of the testimonies very quickly. We just want to rejoice, we want to praise the Almighty God. Who could count this number now except God himself? So many healings. So many joy. And your healings will be permanent in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Those of you whose cases were mentioned specifically by the Word of knowledge wave to the  ministers of God so they can come quickly and hear your cases, then they will pick some of them and we will see what will follow.

Let’s just have some worship songs for about five minutes and then we’ll continue……

I want to pray for all of you children of March. Those are people who share the same month with me. So if you were born in March stand on your feet because I want to pray for you. The rest of you, you will join us in saying ‘Amen’ because your turn will come. In the mighty name of Jesus (Amen!) Father, I commit to your hands these children who were born in the month of March. The month of March is the third month. I hereby decree that concerning these your children. All their blessings will be in triples. (Amen!) That their promotions will be in triples. (Amen!) Their anointings will be in triples. (Amen!) Their joys will come in triples. (Amen!) Their breakthroughs will come in triples. (Amen!) Father, I pray that before the end of this month every one of these your children will receive a special gift from heaven in Jesus Name! (Amen!). Every one of them father use them for your glory, Draw them close to Yourself and let them serve You all the days of their lives. In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Every child born in the month of March let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) So many of them! All right! Glory be to God!

All right let us just take one or two testimonies from those who have been healed tonight……. I wish we could hear the testimonies more and more. I know there are several other things God has done. But we need to begin to round up a little because there’ll be some ministrations tomorrow. There still a few things God will want to do for us tonight. How many of you want more blessings? Let me hear your Amen loud and clear. Lest I forget, tomorrow morning, that is Saturday morning at 11 a.m. there’ll be the time for the laying on of hands at the auditorium because the sun will probably be up by then. Then at 2.pm there’ll be service of songs – many wonderful bands around, they’ll be singing.

I have good news for some people. While I was seeking the face of the Lord for this programme I spent quite some time on the people who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb and even though God promised me that several of them by this time next year will bring their babies, I was, my own desire was that there will not be a single barren woman left in this church. And the Holy Spirit directed me to do something – 1st Monday of every month, 10 a.m. in the morning I will pray for anyone trusting God for the fruit of the womb at the auditorium. First Monday of every month. 10 am. Because Hannah went to Shiloh and got her baby we will call that one Shiloh hour. I believe the Almighty God that as many as will come to that meeting – very, very soon there will be shouts of joy.

I want to pray for my Covenant partners. There were some people who decided 2 years ago that they will assist us with the work of God. The first group said they will fast and pray, 3 months in the year – February, July and December. They will fast and they will pray that the Almighty God will help this work to move forward freely. Then there is Group 2 who said they will come to the Camp and work for God free of charge 3 months I the year of their own choice. And then there is Group 3 those who said they will give God 1 million naira every year for the next 10 years. And then there is Group 4 who said they will give God 10 million naira a year for the next 10 years. I want to pray for all those in these various groups – those who have been doing it and who have been faithful.

But even as I want to pray for them I know there are some of you who were not  here 2 years ago who will love to join  any of these groups. I will pray with you too because you are welcome to join them. But if you are joining any of these groups you will please write your name, write your address and tell us the group you are joining and when the ushers are coming round you drop that with them so we can compile the list and contact you.  So all Covenant partner will you please stand I want to pray for you – those of you who are already there and those of you who want to join. Before I pray for you I want to you to ask God for just one thing. Our God is a covenant-keeping God He will keep His side of the covenant. So go ahead talk to God for just one minute – those of you who belong to these groups and those of you who are joining. Ask God for one thing. I’m going to join my faith with yours. I’m in all the groups so I’m going to join you in prayer too. ……. In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

My Father and my God! I want to thank You for these people who are lifting up our hands making the job easy. On their behalf Lord I say accept our thanks in Jesus Name! . Father, I pray because they have made the job easy for us, everything that has to do with your children – make it easy in Jesus Name!  In their homes, let everything be easy. In their places of work, let everything be easy. Whatever they intend to do let them find it easy. Every project they start – let them complete it easily. Keep sickness away from them, keep death away from them, keep sorrow away from them, keep demons away from them, keep hardship away from them and let it be well with them O Lord. In Jeus mighty Name we have prayed! God bless you! Thank you very much.

Now I told those of you who have been coming to the Holy Ghost Service that when you are coming this time, you should come with 2 handkerchiefs. I want to explain quickly what that one means so that you will know what I’m about to do. Anointing can be transferred 3 possible ways – one by touch, physical contact like it happened to the lame man by the Beautiful Gate. When Peter took his hand suddenly his ankle bones received strength. It can be transferred through a medium. The Bible says in Acts 19:11-12 that God performed special miracles by the hand of Paul, that through him or from his body were taken aprons and handkerchiefs to those who were sick. And the sickness departed and the demons left them. And then anointing could be transferred through space. The Bible says He sent His word and healed them. And tonight as you lift your handkerchiefs to God I’m going to ask the Almighty God to send His anointing from here into those handkerchiefs so that wherever you use those handkerchiefs miracles will happen. We’ve done it before and there have been fantastic testimonies.

So you will stand to your feet now and lift your handkerchiefs, one on the right hand and one on the left. The reason we are doing that is so that from now on whatever you touch with your right hand will receive a miracle, whatever you touch with your left hand will receive a miracle. So lift it up very high and say, ‘Amen!’ as I pray. Are you ready? I didn’t hear your ‘yes’.

In the mighty Name of Jesus! (Amen!) I hereby decree that the anointing of the Almighty God will go into all the handkerchiefs which have been lifted up right now! (Amen!) I saturate each one with the anointing of the most high God! (Amen!) I pray that wherever each of these handkerchiefs is used Lord God Almighty, miracles will happen in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Yokes will be destroyed in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Healings will take place in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Dead businesses will rise in Jesus Name! (Amen!) The barren will become fruitful in Jesus Name! (Amen!)  Demons will be chased out in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Beginning from now, I pray that the Blood of Jesus will cover these handkerchiefs (Amen!) so that the enemy will not be able to interfere with any of these handkerchiefs and the anointing therein. (Amen!) From now on wherever you take these handkerchiefs the power of God will God (Amen!) So shall it be! So shall it be! So shall it be! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Wave the handkerchiefs to the Almighty God and just make the devil mad. Wave  it! Wave  it! Wave  it!….. Wave  it! Wave  it! Wave  it! Wave  it! And now I want you to lay it on your own head and just prophesy to yourself for a while. Say, right now in the mighty name of Jesus, every yoke in my life is destroyed! Go ahead prophesy to yourself for a minute. Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Glory be to God! Thank You Father! Thank You Jesus! So shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Let me hear somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Now God Bless you! You may be seated!

We want to do two things together so that we can leave here on time. First of all let me ask you a question. How many of you have been blessed tonight. I didn’t  hear… All right so we want to thank the Almighty God for what He has done. So we will have a short thanksgiving service as is our custom. The ushers will come round and they will minister to us but in addition to that there is an urgent work that we need to do at the new auditorium there. As you can see, if we had decided to use that place tonight half of us would not have a seat inside. And the Convention is coming. The Convention is during the rainy season so we need to extend the auditorium quickly. We want to add at least 3 bays to what we already have there. We have started work already and we still need a lot of money to complete the work.

So those of you who say within the next 3 months you want to help with the work there I will want to give you a gift as a token from me. If you know you’ll be able to give anything from 1,000 to 1,000,000 towards the work there, the ushers will come round to you. They have several books that I’ve written. Ask for any one of them. If they give you one that you probably have got before, ask for a new one. There are several of them. So as they are passing though if you know you are able to help with anything from N1,000 to N1m just say, Hey give me one book!  You don’t need to tell me your name and address . I trust you that once you promise, you will do it. You are the best congregation in the whole world. Very reliable, very supportive and destined for greatness. And when you are sending the money please remember to put special projects at the back. Don’t write my name if you write my name behind your cheque what will it go for?

So the ushers will come round, we will give our thanksgiving offering, after which I will make one or two announcements and pronounce the final blessings on you. And don’t forget, as the ushers are passing by, ask for your book if you know you are going to help with the special project. We will remain seated, even as the musicians will begin to minister to the Lord…. Any one left that the ushers have not reached? Only those people should shout Alleluia!. Those of you that they have reached you can begin to dance now and rejoice in the Lord. But those of you they have not reached continue waving your hand until they reach you, don’t let them rob you of your blessing. God bless the ushers, there are quite a few to my left. Some cameramen here and some people far, far down at the back. So let’s have one more song and those of us who have already given our offering we can dance and rejoice in the Lord before we close….. I will make one final suggestion. Just in case the ushers still left you out I will ask 4 of them to stand in front of the altar here and God will accept your offering.

I want to announce the birth of a new tape ministry. They’ll be known as new songs tape ministry. They are special in the sense that number one they have the newest equipment in the industry and they’ll be producing my tapes in English only. They’ll be producing in English and Yoruba, English and Ibo, English and Hausa, and English and French so you can just go to them and ask for which one you want. And all the programmes – the programme from tonight , the programmes that have passed, in whatever form you want it you get it from them. Their name is easy to remember – new song tape ministry. They give you the highest quality that any human being can produce.

Let’s stand on our feet now and receive the final blessing before we go. Father we want to thank you for a very wonderful night. Thank You for salvation of souls. Thank You for healings. Thank You for deliverance. Thank You for joy. Thank You that we are on our way to greatness. Accept our thanks in Jesus Name!  This is the thanksgiving offering of Your children. Father receive it. Bless it. Use it for Your glory.

Every one that had given, I pray that you will never borrow again. For the rest of your life you will always have more than sufficient. You will not spend money for sickness. You will not spend money for cases in court. Every project you start will be easily completed. Those of you who are owing right now, long before the end of the year you would have paid everything. (Amen!) Very, very soon you will be so rich that if you take your money out of a bank, the bank will close down. From today, the freedom to worship God the way you want will be given unto you. The freedom to eat what you want, to wear what you want to ride in any car you want, to preach the gospel anywhere you want shall be given unto you. It shall be well with you. Everywhere you go now the favour of God will go with you. (Amen!) You shall be great! (Amen!) You shall be great! (Amen!) You shall be great! (Amen!) So shall it be! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let me hear somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

 Alleluia!

One day 2 young men were captured by their enemies. Beat them thoroughly; put them in prison with the intention that the following day they would kill them. They were in pain. For those who were thrown into prison the future looked bleak and they were in severe pain. The elder said to the younger – do you know that if only God can pay attention to us tonight our problems will be over. The younger one said, I know that. I know God can do all things but how do we get His attention. The elder said, Let us praise Him like nobody had ever done before! ….. Amen … and so they began. You know the story I’m sure. The 2 young men were Paul and Silas. God wants to pay special attention to someone here tonight. For the next 5 minutes I want you to forget everybody else and praise God like you’ve never done before! Praise Him until He will pay attention to you. Magnify His Holy Name until you attract His attention! Praise the King of Kings! Praise the Lord of Lords! Praise the I AM that I AM! Praise the Ancient of Days Praise Him like you have never done before!

That you are well that you are free, you are not in prison, you are not in an asylum, you can still open your mouth and speak. Go ahead thank Him for all that He has done for you. Say, Father, I just want to thank you that I’m alive, I am well, I’m free, I’m not in prison, I’m not in an asylum, my mouth can still talk, I can still move my hands, I can still move my feet – Father, I want to say Thank You!! Thank You!! Thank You!! Thank You!! Father, I want to say Thank You Lord! Almighty God! I want to say Thank You!! Almighty God! King of Glory Thank You for life, Thank You for everything.

Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord! Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord! Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord! Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord! Thank You Father!

The Bible shows us clearly that almost every one that Jesus healed was because Jesus had mercy on them. Lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, tonight have mercy on me. Lift your voice to the Almighty. Father, tonight have mercy on me! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me Lord! Tonight Lord God Almighty have mercy! Have mercy! Have mercy on me Lord! Have mercy on me! Almighty God! Have mercy on me! King of Kings! Lord of Lords! The I AM that I AM! Ancient of Days Have mercy on me! Let me obtain mercy! Let me obtain mercy tonight! Let me obtain mercy!

Father, It’s You I have come to see tonight. Anything that will not let me see You, oh, destroy it completely. Anything that will not allow me to see you – f destroy it, destroy, destroy… Whatever won’t allow me to see you, destroy it, destroy it. Anything that won’t allow me to see You tonight, Almighty God! Destroy it, destroy it, destroy it! It’s you I have come to see! You are the One I have come to see. Please let me see You tonight… Lord let me see You tonight. Let me see You, Let me see You. Anything that won’t let me see you Lord, remove it, remove it… In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The greatest hindrance to miracles in any man’s life are the strongholds of the enemy in their life. So you are going to cry to God, Father, every stronghold of the enemy in my life dismantle, dismantle, dismantle! Talk to the Almighty! Every stronghold of the enemy in my life, Almighty God! dismantle!  Dismantle every stronghold in my life tonight! You are the Lord of Hosts….  Thank You!  …  In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you want to pray for your children because today is a special day for them. Those of you who haven’t got children, you will get your own (Amen!), so pray for them in advance. Father, all the children you have given me, let them be for signs and wonders. Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! All the children that You have given me let them be for signs and wonders, let them be for signs and wonders, for miracles, for power, for glory, for blessings. All the children you have given me let them be for signs and wonders….. Thank You Father! Lord God Almighty Thank You forever more In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The next prayer is a very serious one so listen to me first before you pray. You see some people rest before they get to their goal and those who rest before they get to their goal, they are either eaten up by lions or demons will over take them or demons will rise up against them from within, so lift your voice and say, Father, if I try to rest before I reach my goal, set my bottom on fire…. Pray to the Almighty God!! If I try to sit down before I get to my goal, if I try to rest before I get to where You are taking me, Almighty God! don’t let it happen! Set my bottom on fire! Get me going again, don’t let me stop before I reach my goal, don’t let me stop before I reach my goal! If I try to rest before I’ve reached my goal; if I try to sit down before I get to where You have prepared for me Almighty God! set my bottom on fire so that I will get up and begin to run again! I want to reach my goal. I want to reach the goal you have set for me Lord! Don’t let me rest before I’ve reached my goal. Don’t let me rest before I’ve reached my goal. If I try to rest before I’ve reached my goal set my bottom on fire, set my bottom on fire, set my bottom on fire, so that I can get up and begin to run again. Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The Bible says, they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they will run, they will not be weary, they will walk they will not faint, they will mount with wings as eagles.. Cry to the Almighty God and say, Father, beginning from tonight let me begin to fly like the eagle! Because From tonight Lord let me begin to soar, fly like the eagle I am tired of crawling, I want to soar like the eagle, soar spiritually, soar in every facet of life, I want to soar like an eagle.

And one more prayer for you now. This one I’m not going to beg you to pray it. Say, Father, this month put singing in my mouth and dancing on my feet. Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! Father, this month let my mouth be full of singing and my feet full of dancing – singing in my mouth and dancing in my feet! … This month Lord, this month of April put singing in my mouth, dancing in my feet, put joy unspeakable, glory in my heart! …… Fill me to overflowing with joy and gladness.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said by the time I finish with you you’ll be a surprise to the world.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, even though now you are unknown, through one of your children, the world will hear about you.

Father, we bless Your Name. We give You all glory. We give You all honour. Accept our thanks in Jesus name! Tonight like never before, visit us Lord! We thank You for January. We thank You for February. We thank You for March. Thank You for the Special Holy Ghost Service. Thank You for the impartation service. Glory be to Your Name!

Let somebody shout  ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Shout it loud and clear! Shake hands with one or two people and say God is going to surprise you tonight and then we may be seated with the exception of those of you who were born in April. The children of April should stand. I want to pray for you now.

Father, in the mighty Name of Jesus, I want to pray for all Your children that are born in the month of April. Thank You for giving them another year. Accept our thanks in Jesus Name! It is in Your Name Lord that I decree that since these Your children are children of the 4th month I hereby decree that their blessings will come from the East.

Let the April children shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Congratulations to all of you and I say, Happy Birthday to you all.

1 Samuel 16:1:

And the Lord said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.

We have been looking at this particular verse since January and we are yet to get anywhere near the end. The last bit we discussed is the fact that ‘Samuel is coming’. That’s what we want to continue now: Samuel is coming. So tell your neighbour ‘Samuel is coming’. He’s coming to do what?  He’s coming to anoint somebody. Somebody is going to go home tonight with special anointing tonight. (Amen!) And we said because anointing is coming it means something special is about to happen to someone. It means that yokes are about to be destroyed. It means some legs and anklebones are about to receive strength so some people will go home, leaping and walking and praising God! (Amen!) So I am decreeing that from tonight there will be dancing for your feet. (Amen!) We said ‘Samuel is coming’ means prophetic announcements are coming that whatever Samuel said in the past came to pass because God said He would not allow any of his words to fall to the ground. That means as he speaks before his saliva can touch the ground, what he has said will come to pass. Now the good news is this. That the God of Samuel is my God also so I am confident that He has also given me the power to make pronouncements that will come to pass before I finish speaking so I am saying to somebody today, you will rise out of poverty, you will rise out of sickness, you will rise out of sorrow, you will rise out of failure, you will rise out of bondage, you will walk into health, you will walk into prosperity, you will walk into progress, you will walk into miracles, you will walk into joy, you will walk into freedom.

We said ‘Samuel is coming’ means promotion is coming you see because he was coming to somebody who was going to be promoted. And because of that I am bold to say I’m pronouncing to somebody that your promotion will be accelerated (Amen!) that you will overtake all those who had gone beyond you. (Amen!)

And we said that the fact that ‘Samuel is coming’ means that distinction is coming, that there is somebody in the family who is suddenly going to become distinct. So I am decreeing to somebody tonight that the anointing to excel be given to you in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) I decree that you’ll be distinct in wealth, distinct in health, distinct in joy, distinct in progress, distinct in peace! So shall it be in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

Now that ‘Samuel is coming’ implies that power is coming because when anointing arrives, power automatically will also arrive. That is why I’m pronouncing – and I thank God that at least there are one or two people who could say ‘Amen!’ because they know its for them – that tonight you will receive power from on high! (Amen!) Power to succeed! (Amen!) Power to overrun your enemies! (Amen!) Power to over take! (Amen!) Power to shine! (Amen!) You receive that power tonight in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

But now that ‘Samuel is coming’ means a new manner of speaking is coming. New vocabulary is coming you see because in Acts 2:1-4 the Bible says, that on the day of Pentecost when power came the people spoke with new tongues. Not only will you be speaking with new tongues tonight, new vocabulary means because of the anointing of God on your lives you will begin to decree and it will come to pass. (Amen!) ……..

There is somebody here today who knows, suddenly knows, that today my problems are over. If you are the one open your mouth and say it loud and clear! I know today, today, I mean today my problems will be over!

I told you before of a man. A bank manager who suddenly ran mental and they arrested him. They had given him matchet cuts on the head and then the policeman put handcuffs on his hands and chains on his feet because he was very wild because they were taking him to some place. Suddenly he said, Please take me to Redemption Camp. I know if my feet would touch that ground I will be well. That was all he could say. Now remember he’s a mad man now – he was wild but some how God gave him the opportunity to make that utterance and they brought him. Fortunately I was there in my old office and I came out and they told me about what had happened and so I told the policemen – release him. And they said, “No. He’s a wild man. We brought him so you can pray for him.” I said, “No. Didn’t you hear what you said he said? You said to me that he said if my feet can touch that ground, I know I can be well. Release him let him come down from the jeep.” And the Police Officer said, “Okay, if we release him then whatever happens it’s up to you.” So I said, “Fine.” And they released him. And as he stepped on the ground, suddenly, suddenly, I say suddenly, all was well!

I want you to stand on your feet and march on this ground and say, “Father, I am standing on holy ground! Right now my problems are over!” If you believe that shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Thank You Jesus! God bless you! You may be seated! ‘Samuel is coming’. Now ‘Samuel is coming’ means the gift of prophecy is coming. David not only became a king, the anointing on his head turned him to a prophet. He made many of the prophecies concerning the Lord Jesus Christ. In Psalm 22:1 it is written, My God, my God why hast Thou forsaken me? That was David prophesying what Jesus Christ was going to say on the cross. In Psalm 16:10 he prophesied the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ He said, You will not leave my soul in hell and you will not allow your holy one to suffer corruption. He prophesied the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ! And then in Psalm 24:7-10 he prophesied the return of Jesus Christ when he said, Lift up your heads O ye gates and be ye lift up ye everlasting doors that the king of glory may come in. He was talking about the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Long, long before Paul wrote Philippians 4:19 That my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. David had already said, the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. The gift of prophecy is coming on somebody tonight in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

Oh, you mean I can prophesy? Sure, at least you can say, I will not die I will live and declare the works of the Lord. Say it loud and clear…. Or you can say, I know my tomorrow will be all right… Are you sure? You didn’t say it as if you mean it. Tell your neighbour: Don’t write me off! My tomorrow will be all right!

I’m sure you heard the testimony here of a woman who went to Britain when she was there with her children she suffered a stroke and the children were saying at least thank God you are where the medical facilities are good. She said, Send me to Nigeria. And they said what are you saying? If anybody has stroke in Nigeria if he has the money he will come to London. She said, Yes there are doctors in London but God lives in Nigeria. Send me to Nigeria I will go and meet him in Nigeria. I know his headquarters is in Redemption Camp. When she will not listen they bundled her into the plane. Her mouth was twisted but as she got down at Muritala Mohammed airport the mouth was straightened and the children said something seemed to be happening but you are not completely well yet. She said, I told you God lives in Nigeria and His headquarters is in Redemption Camp and by the time she got to Redemption Camp every trace of stroke disappeared completely. Nobody prayed for her but she prophesied – take me to Nigeria. Get me to Redemption Camp! If I get there I will be whole. There is somebody here tonight because you came your problems are over. (Amen!)

So ‘Samuel is coming’ means that increased prayer power is coming because when anointing comes on you, the Holy Spirit takes over your life and according toZechariah 12:10 the Bible says, God says I will pour on you the Spirit of grace and supplication on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem. The spirit of grace and supplication os like an oil that is poured and the Bible says in Rom.8: 26 that we don’t know how to pray as we ought but that the spirit helps our infirmities. Today, the power to pray, the anointing to call on the Almighty God will come upon someone in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

When I joined this church I didn’t know how to pray. Where I was coming from we don’t pray. If you want to pray you read one of the prayers. If you are in church and the Pastor is praying. If you are not asleep by the time he’s finished reading what he’s reading, you say the ‘Amen’ so silently people can hardly hear you. Then I joined the Redeemed Christian Church of God and I wanted to know how to pray but I didn’t know.  When they say, Go and pray, by the time I’ve prayed for five minutes I’ve said everything I wanted to see but in those days when I look up I will see that everybody is still going on. So I go back on my knees. I don’t want to be the first one to get up and then I repeat what I have already said: God you know why I am here, God you have to solve this my problem. I do it very quickly then I read Our Father which art in heave, hallowed be thy name..

One day I decided, I am going to learn how to pray and there was a particular man in the church – oh he knows how to pray! So I decided I will go to church very early in the morning and sit next to him and hear what he’s saying. What is he talking about? So very early on Sunday I go to church, sat next to him and I was listening to his prayer and I was repeating what he was saying: O Lord You are the King of Kings! (O Lord You are the King of Kings!) O Lord You are the I AM that I AM! (O Lord You are the I AM that I AM!) O Lord You are the Ancient of Days (O Lord You are the Ancient of Days) And I kept on repeating everything he said. For one hour we were there together and I enjoyed myself after I’ve done that for some weeks I found that now I know what to say but I still wasn’t satisfied and I kept on praying: God teach me how to pray! Empower me to pray! And a time came after the Holy Spirit came on me that a friend of mine and I decided that we were going to wait upon the Lord; we were going to pray until we were fully satisfied. And we started in the morning we prayed throughout the day, we prayed throughout the following night, we prayed throughout the following day. If we broke at all it was to go to the toilet. So we prayed for 36 hours and I was happy: Now I am a prayer warrior! That very week, God allowed me to find a book and I read about a man who prayed without ceasing for 30 days and 30 nights! I cried back to God Father teach me how to pray! Is there any one who wants to lift his heart to God and say, Father, the power to pray, give to me tonight! So shall it be in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

Thank You Father! Now I am sure you know that even as we are talking God was healing. All kinds of healings are going on right now. And He asked me to tell someone: that which the lion has swallowed, the lion shall vomit again. (Amen!)

‘Samuel is coming’ and you know what that means to David? It means they are about to send for him. ‘Samuel is coming’ means divine summons is coming. It means the King of Kings is going to send for somebody here tonight. In 1 Samuel 16:11 Samuel said to Jesse, Send and fetch him! The Almighty God in His infinite mercy is going to command tonight: go and bring so-and-so! Go and bring Adeboye, I want to see him. You remember the story of Bartimeus when he was at the roadside crying: Jesus thou son of David, have mercy on me. Jesus said, Go and bring him! Anyone that God sends for will return home with joy! So God is going to send for someone here tonight! (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Several years ago they brought a man to my office. He looked like a mad man. Just looking at him you will think this man must be crazy bit when they introduced him I discovered it is problem that made him look like that. He has PhD in Agric but since he graduated he never got a job. For several years – no food, no money. He has borrowed so much that his friends now run away from him. And they brought him. I asked him to give his life to Jesus. He surrendered. We prayed a simple prayer. He returned back to his town. By the time he got home they said, “Where have you been?” He said, “I travelled to Lagos. Why are you asking where I’ve been?”  They said, “The Governor has sent for you. They said they want to make you Commissioner!” I don’t know who I’m talking to but by the time you get home there’ll an invitation form the most high. I say there’ll be an invitation form the Most High God. (Amen!)

‘Samuel is coming’ ‘Samuel is coming’ means obscurity is about to end. They have forgotten David in the bush when they were presenting sons, those from whom one is to be chosen as king. They did not send for David. The father had forgotten him in the bush. But God remembered him. God is going to remember somebody tonight. (Amen!) At least I know God is going to remember me tonight and He will remember someone also tonight. And all of a sudden from that day onwards being forgotten is a stranger to David – nobody can ever say again that we forgot David.

Several years ago one of my daughters came to me. I have no husband. Nobody is asking, nobody had ever said, “How now?” So I said, Let us pray. If God remembers you, those who should remember you too will remember. So we prayed and very soon she came to me and said, Daddy I have a problem. What’s the problem this time? Six boys? Six boys said, “Thus says the Lord! You are to be my wife!” Which one do I choose? I asked for one now 6 have shown up? All of you who thought you have been forgotten God will remember you this month! (Amen!) This shall be your month of remembrance. (Amen!) Let me hear your ‘Amen’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

Those of you who have been working hard and those who should promote you always forgot, this month Almighty God! shall remember you. (Amen!) The people that Joseph helped forgot him in prison but when his day came he was remembered. And when he was remembered he moved form prison to palace in one day. Within the next 24 hours as the Lord God liveth you will be remembered. (Amen!) You will be remembered.

‘Samuel is coming’ means the time of revelation is at hand.

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is somebody here you feel as if your body has been divided into parts. The Lord says He’s reassembling them now. (Amen!)

Isaiah 60:1 made it clear that for somebody here tonight it is time to arise and shine for your light has come. If you are the one arise, shine your light has come. From now on you will shine! In the mighty name of Jesus you will shine! (Amen!) say it loud and clear: It is my time to shine!

‘Samuel is coming’ means loneliness is ending. (Amen!) From the time they anointed David he was never lonely again. Before Samuel came he was always alone. The only companions he had are goats and sheep. No human being there. The brothers don’t go there just sit down at home enjoying but because Samuel came his loneliness ended, I remember very well, one of my daughters too came to me years ago; Daddy I have a problem. What is your problem? I feel so lonely. Somehow I have no friends and I feel so lonely. I said, Is that so? I said, A week ago one young man came and said God told him that you are to be his wife.. She said, Ah, who is he? I said, No Go and pray. I ‘m not the matchmaker. Go and ask God, who is to be my husband? Because somebody had come, So she went and prayed and came back and said, the fellow I saw can’t be that boy. I said, I don’t know who that boy is, you haven’t told me yet. It can’t be that boy? Tell me who is that boy. And then she told me and it happened to be the boy who had come a week before. I said, but you told me you are lonely. Before you were lonely, God had provided the solution to your loneliness.  6 months later they were married. Every one of you that is lonely here tonight before this year of foundations is over, your loneliness will be far, far, forgotten.

‘Samuel is coming’ means divine partnership is coming. You see when they sent for David and they poured the oil on his head, the Bible said, and the spirit of God came upon David from that day onwards. David had a divine partner form that day onwards. And what else do you need other than God to be your partner? He said to Moses I will be with you, He said to Joshua, As I was with Moses, so will I be with you. He says to you in Hebrews 13:5, He says, I will never leave you, I will never forsake you. From today you will never be alone in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

Some years ago I had a challenge in my life, a challenge so sever that I couldn’t even say who’s my friend anymore

Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s somebody here, He said I should tell you, He said I will pour oil on your wounded heart. (Amen!)

I had this challenge in my life.  Almost all my friends forsook me. I didn’t even know who to call friend anymore and I was in a very sad situation. All of a sudden I heard God speak. God will speak to somebody here tonight. (Amen!) He said, My son, I am all you need! I am all you need! I don’t know who God is comforting tonight.  Maybe you have been disappointed by friends. The Almighty God is telling you He is all you need. (Amen!) God will be with you forever.

‘Samuel is coming’ means victory is coming. Why? Because the moment Samuel arrives, anointing arrives and once anointing arrives it is written in Psalm 105:14-15, touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm. Beginning from tonight any hand that rises against you shall be cut off by the Almighty God! (Amen!) When God anoints, victory comes, complete victory, total victory. During the Holy Ghost Service in London last Friday, I shared the testimony of lady and I’m sure some of you have heard it before. On the day of here wedding, the husband did not show up. The boy lied to her thinking that I’m going to marry you on such and such a day, we will go to the registry.  The woman went there gaily dressed, ready to marry and waited and waited and waited. The boy did not show up. So you can imagine her sorrow, the shame! She nearly ran mental but somehow she survived and then she married. She married a soldier. The boy that jilted her also joined the army. Years passed. The man that this girl married became a military Governor and the boy that jilted her was made the ADC of that Governor so any time she wanted to travel the boy that jilted her would open the door for her to come in. Tonight your victory will be total. (Amen!) I say one more time, your victory will be total! (Amen!)

‘Samuel is coming’ means greatness is coming. I thought somebody will say ‘Amen’ to that. David is the greatest king of Israel. And he gave a testimony in Psalm 18:35 He said, Lord Your gentleness had made me great. He said, I know I don’t deserve to be great but Your gentleness made me great. Verily, verily, I say unto you, in the mighty name of Jesus! You shall be great! (Amen!) I say, you shall be great! (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord says there’s somebody with hip problem that he has taken care of that. (Amen!)

And He says there’s someone with circulation problem. He said He has taken care of that. (Amen!)

And He said, somebody was saying some minutes ago, Oh how I wish God will give me double promotion! And God says, How about triple. What about triple promotion? If you receive that will you say ‘Amen’ loud and clear. (Amen!)

‘Samuel is coming’ means new dreams, new visions coming. In Joel 2:28 the Bible made it clear that when God pours His Spirit He said there’ll be dreams and visions – big dreams, big visions. I’ve told you the story. When I became the General Overseer. Before I became General Overseer, II was Head of Department of Mathematics at the University of Ilorin. I was living in a mansion. I had guest quarters, which was a 2-bedroom flat. I had boys’ quarters that had 4 bedrooms before you now talk about the main house. Then I became General Overseer and I had to live in Mushin.

My wife and children were in Ilorin. When they were about to come, I went to God in prayer. Father, You know I don’t mind living in one room. But my wife is coming, my children are coming, give me a house, even if its just a boy’s quarter – one room for me, one room for my wife, maybe one for the children – one small boys quarter.

And the Lord answered and said, “Son, don’t ask me for a house, I have decided to build you a city. Why ask for a house? A city is what I’m going to give you!” I said, “City? Is he going to drive everybody out because of me? Or is it Ibadan that is going to say they should get away so that He can give it to his son?” But all of a sudden I began to dream, began to dream of a city where everybody will be a Christian. I began to dream of a city where you can walk day and night without molestation. I began to dream of a city where water will not fail. Where light will not go out. I began to dream of a city. I began to dream of a city where, when you turn to the right, you hear people saying,’ Praise the Lord!’ where when you turn to the left you hear people saying, ‘How great Thou art..’ If you look behind you, you will hear people who are singing, who are dancing, praising God! I began to dream of a city where the pregnant will deliver safely! I began to dream of a city where every captive will be set free. Today we may be calling it Redemption Camp but very soon it will be the Redemption City! (Amen!) Do I hear somebody say ‘Amen’ to that? (Amen!)

And tonight, this very night the dreams of greatness, visions of glory shall be given to somebody here. (Amen!) I say you will get visions of glory. The Bible says, if you can see it you can have it. If you can dream of it, you can have the vision of it. If you can see yourself free from debt, if you can see yourself completely whole, if you can see yourself not having too struggle to catch a bus but sitting comfortably at the back of your own car. If you see yourself phoning the bank manager and telling him, I have some money here that I want you to come and collect. If you can see yourself driving to Ikeja airport to go and board your own jet…. if you can see it you can have it. How many of you will see visions of greatness from now? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Do you know if you can see yourself lay hands on the sick and they get healed before you can take off your hands….. If you can see yourself, waving your hand and the captives are set free; if you can see yourself speaking a word and miracles begin to happen – if you can see it, you can have it. I believe with somebody here today, that long before you die, the whole world will now about you! (Amen!) I can see it with you and you will have it in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

‘Samuel is coming’ means change of location is coming. Because Samuel came it wasn’t long before David left the bush and began to live in the palace. Col.1: 12-13 says God has translated us out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of his marvellous light. In Mark 5:1-20 the Bible tells us of a man who was living among the dead. His abode was among the dead people. Then Jesus came and everything changed, he was no longer living among the dead. He became an evangelist. There are some of you who are living in darkness up till now. Tonight God will translate you into His light. (Amen!) There was someone who had been living in poverty. Tonight God will translate you into His prosperity (Amen!)

It’s a matter of if you can see it. If you can see yourself translated, God will do the translation. I’ve shared this testimony in divine encounter before. When I travelled to London, whenever Io travel to London there’s a young man who drives me around, he has a bus. So I sit in the bus and he drives me around and anytime we are driving past the shop where they are selling Rolls Royce I will look in that direction and I will say, My son, one day I will go inside and drive one out!” And he will say, “Amen!” One day as we were driving past we saw a shop where they sell SALES. The shop, they were selling clothes, they put SALES on it. So I said, “Stop me here. If they are doing it on sales I may be able to get something I can buy.” And I got there and I found they were selling a shirt for £25! I said, “What’s wrong with these people? You say you are on sale and one is £25!” So I told my boy, “Let’s go. Don’t mind these stupid people!” And then it was that day again that we were driving past the Rolls Royce shop and again I said, One day I will go in there and drive one out!” And the boy laughed. Look at this man; he can’t buy a shirt for £25 he wants to drive a Rolls Royce! He laughed. I said, “My son, why are you laughing?” He said, “Nothing Sir! Nothing Sir!” But I know why he was laughing. But then my day came. Your day will come tonight. (Amen!) I say your day will come tonight.

I was returning from America where I had gone to minister and I arrived at the airport and this my son had come with his bus to pick me up but then there was a Rolls Royce. Somebody was standing by it and as I came out, he said, “Daddy, somebody said this Rolls Royce is for you.” I looked at my son who has the bus and I laughed. And he laughed. The rest of the people didn’t know why we were laughing. Tonight God will do something in your life that for the rest of your life, you’ll be laughing. (Amen!) Let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) loud and clear to that one.

O Thank You Father! The Lord said, somebody just said, if You will set me free I will teach people how to worship You O God. The Lord asked me to tell you Agreed! Agreed!

Samuel is coming’ means change of identity is coming. Shepherd boy is about to become royal majesty. Before Samuel came David was a shepherd boy but the moment Samuel arrived it was King David! I am confident there is someone here tonight because you came at all a change of identity for the better is coming your way. (Amen!) I remember – these stories come to my mind when I talk about this – I remember a friend of mine we were friends, You know – ‘hello, hi, hi.’ And then he became an ambassador and I went to visit him and because of his position whenever he comes in everybody must stand, including myself! I looked at him – it’s not your fault it is your identity that changed. Your identity will change for the better tonight in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) Your promotion shall be rapid in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

O ‘Samuel is coming’ means faith is coming. I said faith is coming. You see faith is in various categories. The Bible talks about people with low faith Mark 4:40. Jesus said how is it that you have no faith. And then the Bible talks about little faith. Mark 6:30: O ye of little faith. And then the Bible talks of faith as the grain of mustard seed. Matthew 17:20 And then the Bible talks about great faith. Matthew 15:21-28 And then the Bible talks about exceedingly great faith. Matthew 8:5-15 but there is faith that is a gift from the Holy Spirit, faith that the Holy Spirit just hands over to you. You don’t struggle for it; you don’t pray for it, it’s a gift from the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:9 ‘Samuel is coming’ means anointing is coming. With anointing comes the Holy Spirit, with the Holy Spirit comes His gifts. There are many of us we have been struggling to have faith big enough to move mountains. Somehow we haven’t got it. But tonight that faith is going to come as a gift from the Holy Spirit (Amen!) I say the faith that can move mountains will be deposited in you tonight in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

‘Samuel is coming’ means miracles are coming. That follows immediately from the fact that faith is coming because once you get that faith from the Holy Spirit all things become possible. Mark 9:23 says if you can believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Miracles come in categories. There are miracles of defeating lions, miracles of defeating bears, miracles of knocking down Goliath with a stone, miracles of special deliverance, miracles of recovering everything that the enemy had stolen; miracles of enlargement of somebody who had nothing suddenly becoming the King of a nation – every miracle you need shall be deposited in you tonight in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) And the Almighty God will enlarge your coast in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) Amen.

I remember one day – I think I’ve told you this story before. When they say pray, I pray – pray for the sick and leave the rest to God I didn’t have faith to expect miracles to happen immediately and a woman brought her child. I can’t remember how old that child was now but it must be about ten years old or so – the child had never spoken, the mother said not a single word. So bring her in let us pray. And I said, In the name of Jesus.. And the child said, Amen! I nearly jumped out of the window – I was afraid. I’ve not even prayed and I was not expecting a miracle. The kind of miracle that will want to make you run shall happen to you very soon in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

‘Samuel is coming’ means joy is coming. Joy is coming! I tried to put myself in the position of David – I was in the bush looking after sheep, singing songs to God because there is nobody else to talk to. Suddenly somebody came and said, They want you at home! What have I done? The sheep that would have been killed by a lion didn’t succeed…. We don’t want to hear your story, come they are calling you at home! So I came home, not knowing what to expect and as soon as I arrived, without explanation, without discussion, they just said, Kneel down! Ahh! what have I done? And my brothers stood by looking at me. Those who thought I will never become anything are standing looking at me. And the man of God came and poured oil on my head: Hail, King of Israel! Ahhh! If you were David how will you feel? How will you feel? That kind of joy that will bring tears to your eyes will come your way today in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) I say joy unspeakable will come to you today in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

Psalm 30:5 says, Weeping may endure for a night, joy cometh in the morning. I prophesy to someone today by the time the sun rises your joy will be full. (Amen!) I say, your joy will be full! (Amen!)

Ahhh! I remember, I remember – there are several days I could remember but there is one in particular. I’ve told you before that before we me t the Lord Jesus Christ my wife and I we had 3 children but they were all by Caesarean operation and after 3 we decided that’s enough because the doctor said she cannot deliver naturally. And then we became born-again, I mean 6 years later. Suddenly we began to learn about this God with tremendous power and one day as I was studying the Bible I came across Luke 1:37 for with God nothing shall be impossible and that stuck with me. Somehow I knew that what the doctor said is impossible my God will make it possible.

To cut a long story short because some of you already know it, my wife became pregnant, we refused to see any doctor. Those who were my friends among the doctors said that I was going to kill my wife that the baby cannot be delivered, that if the baby is very small it might manage to escape but because my wife had been sutured 3 places inside, during labour at least on of them will rupture and she will bleed to death and I kept saying no that’s not written in the Bible. And then the time to deliver came. First day she laboured and laboured and laboured, the baby didn’t come. Second day, she laboured and laboured and laboured, the baby didn’t come. Third day, labour and labour and labour… I ran from the University of Lagos where I was working the maternity centre at Ebute Metta so I went to Surulere to bring her food. As I was going and I got to Iddo Terminals, the devil said clearly unto me: Stupid ma! And you say you have PhD! Fool! Your wife is going to die tonight and you will see what the relatives will do to you! And suddenly a holy anger rose up within me and I said, Listen devil, if my wife dies tonight and it was Friday night, I will get permission from the General Overseer to preach on Sunday and the first thing that I will say is that there is nothing that my God cannot do! As soon as I said that the devil left and the light of God flooded my car. When I got home my other children ran out to meet me: Daddy, Daddy has the baby come? I said, “No, But by the time I come back tomorrow morning I will bring you good news.” I got the food, drove back to Ebute-Metta.

When I arrived, I sat in the car still praying and suddenly, I heard the sound of a baby! … You will hear the sound of joy today. (Amen!) I say you will hear the sound of joy tonight! My wife was the only one in the maternity Centre so that baby can only be mine. So I sat down in the car. Well the baby has come. We don’t know anything about the mother yet. But after some time my father in the Lord came out because he stayed, he didn’t go, and said, “Baba Aburo, Go and greet your wife…..”  The kind of joy that brings tears to your eyes will be your portion from tonight onward in Jesus’ name! I didn’t hear your ‘Amen’ to that one. (Amen!) I say I didn’t hear your  ‘Amen’ to that one! (Amen!)

Yes ‘Samuel is coming’  – joy is coming, that means gratitude is coming. How can God give you the kind of joy that He gave to David without you being grateful? People said David was always a grateful fellow. Who will be in the position of David without being grateful? Psalm 103:1-5 it said bless the Lord O my soul and all that is within me bless His holy name. Bless the Lord O my soul forget not all His benefits. Has God done anything for anybody here tonight? That you are alive is that not something to thank God for? I was preaching in London recently and I just heard it coming out of my mouth and I was saying to some young girls there, I said, when we say let’s praise God and you say I can’t praise Him because I’ve been looking for a husband I haven’t got one.. I say do mad people marry? Mad people do they marry? Can’t you thank God that you are not mad? Do they celebrate marriage in prison? Have you seen a man who said I love this girl so much I want to marry her even now that she is in the mortuary? O Lord! How ungrateful we can be! How ungrateful! I’m well. I’m alive! I’m not in prison, I am not mad. I am not in detention. I am not in the mortuary! And yet when we say praise the Lord you can’t even shout? Let somebody shout  ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Ahh! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God!

‘Samuel is coming’ means joy is coming, gratitude is coming, it means the grace to give is coming. It is ungrateful people who don’t know how to give. David said, what is it that I have that you did not give me. He said, who do I have in heaven and earth but you? He said, I will never offer a sacrifice that costs me nothing. The grace to give, which by the way is the only way out of poverty, the Lord will give unto you tonight in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

‘Samuel is coming’ means testimonies are coming. It wasn’t long after Samuel arrived when David began to give testimonies: A lion came, I killed the lion. A bear came, I killed the bear! There are some people here who don’t even know the power of testimony. Let me tell you one secret – those who give testimonies never lose a battle. You can write that one down because there are many of you when we say it is testimony time: Ohh! let others go and do that. I’m too big to testify. Those who give testimonies never lose a battle – why? Because when you talk about what God has done in the past God will be compelled to do more! David said, my God killed a lion, He killed a bear, He will kill this Goliath. God said, Yes my boy, I will do so. I am believing God for one day when the whole Holy Ghost Night will be nothing other than testimonies.

Testimony is a weapon of warfare. If you don’t believe me read 2 Chronicles 20, read the whole chapter. It is the story of a King who knew how to give testimony. He was surrounded by enemies and he began to testify – my God are You not the One who did this? Are You not the One who did that? Are You not the One who did this? Are You not the One who did that? And God said, listen my son you don’t need to fight, just keep on singing and I will transfer the wealth of the wicked to you. I prophesy to somebody tonight your next testimony will shake the world. (Amen!) I say, your next testimony will shake the world. (Amen!) A word of prophecy came during the Holy Ghost Service in London last Friday. It was so big I begged God to let me claim it for you. I receive it for myself I know He said its for someone there in London but I said, Please Lord let me claim it for those of us in Nigeria. You know what He said, he said, soon a miracle will happen to you from which you will never recover! A miracle that for the rest of your life, I mean you will just say, that is the miracle! That is the miracle! That is the miracle! That is going to happen to somebody here tonight in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

Now up to now I’ve been preaching as a father. I want to put on the garment of the coach now because ‘Samuel is coming’ means the coach is coming so tell your neighbour, things are about to get serious now. Samuel is a no-nonsense man. He said to Jesse, Go and bring that boy. We will not sit down until you bring him. I told you, a coach is somebody who wants to bring the best out of you. In every one of us there is greatness, the Almighty God! has arranged it for every one of us to be great but many-a-time the greatness is hidden in the bush. It takes a coach to say we will not sit down until you bring out that greatness. Every greatness that is hidden in you shall come forth this year in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

Ephesians 3: 20 it said God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us. The power is already in you now God wants to bring it out. (Amen!) And it’s going to come out. (Amen!) If you don’t allow it to come out gently, by God’s grace I will bring it out by force. (Amen!)

‘Samuel is coming’ but he is not coming for everybody. He’s coming for one fellow out of eight. There were 7 big boys and there’s this small boy. Yes Samuel came but he came for 1 fellow. The Bible said in 1 Corinthians 9:24 it said many run a race but one wins the prize. Who is going to be the greatest here tonight? Let your Amen be the loudest. (Amen!) So who is Samuel coming for? That’s what I want to tell you now – that’s my duty as a coach. Samuel is not coming for another Saul. He is not coming for a man of incomplete obedience.  He is not coming for somebody who will pay half of his tithe. He’s not coming for someone who will not give cheerfully and bountifully. He is not coming for somebody who will not witness, who will not win souls. He is not coming for somebody who will not pray at night. He’s not coming for a wife who will not respect her husband. He is not coming for a husband who will not love his wife. He is not coming for a child who will not honour his parents. He is not coming for adulterers. He is not coming for fornicators. He is coming for only one …. in the whole family. He is not coming for a man of incomplete surrender. He is not coming for a man who will fear man more than God. He is not coming for a man who will not have respect for the man of God.

Thank You Father! Daddy says there is someone here, he says as Goliath mocked David and yet ended up under the feet of David. So will those who are mocking you now end up under your feet. (Amen!)

You know God is greater than I. We are discussing something serious and He’s still bringing this good one inside. He’s a good God. Samuel is not coming for somebody who is big in his own eyes. He is not coming for a lazy man. He is not coming for those who will sit down at home at a time they should be busy in the field. He’s coming for a man who though he may be alone, he’s alone with God; a man who will not follow multitudes to do evil. A man who will not say, others are doing it therefore I will do it. A man who will separate himself or herself unto God. A man who will live a life of holiness a life of purity. He’s coming to a man who is hungry and thirsty for God. David said in Psalm 42:1, he said as the hart panteth after the river brooks so my heart pants after you O God. Samuel is not coming for those who attend the Holy Ghost Service 3 times a year. He is coming for those who come every month whether there is petrol shortage or not they will come. He is not coming for Sunday, Sunday Christians. He’s coming for those every time the door of the church opens they are there!  They don’t come to the service late they are there for Sunday school. They are there for Digging Deep. They are there for night vigil because they are hungry for God! David said in Psalm 27:8, he said, O God when you said seek thee my face, my heart said, they face O Lord will I seek – you don’t need to say it 2 times Lord, I have agreed for You!

When I became born-again and I saw how close I was to hell before God saved my soul and I saw that with my PhD in Mathematics I didn’t know the Bible, when I come to Sunday School and they ask a question I see market women answering the questions, talking of .. As it is written in Galatians; as it is written in 1 Thessalonians, I didn’t even know where that is in the Bible! With my PhD I became hungry – I want to know the Bible. I was at every meeting! And many-a-times I’ll be running, I’ll be running for Bible study coming from my office. And I will see those who have been Christians for years sitting down with their legs crossed and I wonder, what’s wrong with them, don’t they know we are already almost late for the Bible study? Some of them said to me, Ah leave him alone, the power front that has just got up as though he’s going to reach heaven. Those who have gone before nko? Leave him alone, he will soon cool down. And I said, I don’t know about others but in my own case as God lives I’m going to get hotter day by day. I thank my God that He is a covenant-keeping God.

Samuel is coming; he is not coming for those who are careless. He is not coming for those who don’t want to take Christianity seriously. He is not coming for those who are ashamed to proclaim him publicly. He’s coming for a man or a woman who can say like David said in Psalm 108:1 my heart is fixed O Lord. My heart is fixed, I will praise you. That is the one that God is coming for.

Let me conclude this first half of the programme by telling you something – that there is someone greater than Samuel that is coming. His name is Jesus Christ. The King of Kings is coming, the Lord of Lords is coming, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah is coming, the Bright and Morning Star is coming and when He arrives He will wipe away all tears from my eyes. Jesus is coming soon but for whom is He coming? Not for everybody. It is for those who are ready. My own Samuel is coming again soon. When He comes will you be ready? Some of you are here tonight who are not yet born again. As we begin to sing a song now, if you have not yet given your life to Jesus, you will run forward. You hold your two ears and run because Jesus can come tonight and if He comes and finds that you are yet in your sin He will leave you behind. And those of you who say you are already born again and you are still living in sin – you know you are a backslider, you better run forward also….. Will you be ready when the Lord shall come? Oh yes, I will be ready, I will be ready……

Those of you who are already in front, cry to God, ask Him to save your soul, ask Him to forgive your sins, ask Him to cleanse you in His blood, to wash away all your sins. Those of you who are still coming, hurry up quickly, the rest of us let’s cry to God: Father, let me be ready. When the Lord shall come let me be ready! Let me be ready! Let me be ready! Let me be ready! Let me be ready O Lord let me be ready let me be ready Lord when You shall come let me be ready! Let me be ready! He said, Behold! I come quickly and my reward is with me to give every man according to his work .. Lord let me be ready when the Lord shall come let me be ready! Let me be ready! Lord let me be ready! Let me be ready! Cry to Him my brethren! Lord let me be ready! Let me be ready when the Lord shall come! Those of you who are still coming, hurry up now, I’m about to pray, I’m about to pray for the salvation of the souls of those who are in front. If you are coming for the salvation of your soul then hurry up. O Lord Let me be ready! Lord let me be ready when You shall come! When all sorrows shall cease! When there’ll be no more tears. Let me be ready! Let me be ready! Let me be ready! Lord Let me be ready! Please Let me be ready! Let me be ready when the Lord shall come! Almighty God! Let me be ready! Father Let me be ready! Let me be ready! Thank You my Father! Glory be to Your Holy Name!  Those of you who are still coming make sure you get here before I finish praying. Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

O my Father and my God, we want to thank You for Your word which has gone forth with so much power, so much anointing. Thank You for these people who have come forward. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ name! (Amen!). Father You promised that whosoever will come unto You, You will in no wise cast out. They’ve come to you now receive them in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) Forgive them, in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) Cleanse them in Your blood in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) Write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) Father, every time they cry unto You, answer them in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) And if You return tonight please don’t leave them behind (Amen!) In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen Praise the Lord! Alleluia.

Now I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward. Let me first of all hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). Good. Now the Bible says, Joy before the angels for every one sinner that repents. That is every time one fellow comes to Jesus, Jesus gets up and dances before the angels. He’s dancing because of you now. Jesus is dancing because of you tonight. I rejoice with you that’s why the rest of us are rejoicing with you. I thought the rest of us are rejoicing with them! Alleluia

Now another reason why I am rejoicing for you is that from tonight I will be praying for you. And God answers my prayers that is why I am gong to need your names, address and your prayer requests so that I can present it to God That’s why you must write your correct address so when I ask God to send your miracle it will be sent to the address that you put down. So you will follow that brother who is waving the piece of wood there. Some pastors are waiting to help me collect your names and addresses and then they will bring it to me. We will wait for you till you come before we do any major thing again. So you can begin to go now. And I am going to ask some deacons and deaconess to join the counsellors because we have a crowd here tonight. Are you excited? Why don’t you give the Lord a big round of applause? Is that all you can do for the Lord? You can no longer clap for Him? It is a great thing to serve the Lord…. O what a wonderful, wonderful thing….

‘Samuel is coming’ means joy is coming, gratitude is coming, testimony is coming. Anybody here tonight that has something to thank God for, I want you to stand on your feet and just bless the Name of the Lord. Say, I can’t thank you enough O Lord please just receive the little thanks I bring tonight! Lift your hands to Him and begin to bless His holy name, bless His Holy Name!

If it is well with you let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) One of the ways I know that it is well with my soul is that the Almighty God has always given us a sign when He wants to do something special In the Redeemed Christian Church of God that is a regular sign. He will give us a baby boy but tonight He didn’t give us one He gave us 2 at 11:45pm It is well with my soul. If it is well with your soul let me hear you shout another Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

Very soon we’ll be bringing forth our children for special prayers. We started doing this a couple of years back in the month of April.  We started doing this when all of a sudden we discovered that the devil was killing children in large numbers and we don’t want that to happen to our children. We want to thank God that since we started the Almighty God! had been looking after our children. He will continue to look after our children. Not only that there are children that though they don’t die but they are possessed by devils and we don’t want that to happen to our children that’s why we set aside the month of April for our children – so that we can lay hands on them and keep the enemy far away from them. And tonight in the mighty name of Jesus, every child that we shall lay hands on shall be consecrated to the Almighty God! and Satan will stay away from them. I didn’t hear your ‘Amen’. (Amen!)

But I want to share al little more before we bring forth these children. And that is one statement that God said, it’s this same 1 Samuel 16:1. When He said I will send you to Jesse. He did not say I will send you to David. He said I will send you to Jesse. Every man has a root. In every family there is always someone that God will pick out for the root for that family and the name of that person will begin to spread downward through out that generation, for example when you hear Pastor Adeboye. The name ‘Adeboye’ is the name of my father. My own names are Enoch Adejare but now my children don’t bear Adejare they bear what? Adeboye. We now have Adeolu Adeboye, Damilare Adeboye, Gbemileke Adeboye. You don’t hear them say my name is Adeolu Adejare.. And then I began to have grandchildren and one of them didn’t get up and say my name is Shemilogo Adeolu even though Adeolu is his father. And he didn’t say I’m Semilogo Adejare even though Adejare is the father of Adeolu. He says I’m Semilogo Adeboye going right back to the one that it has pleased God to make the root in the Adeboye family.

Jesse is the root of David. And the root is very important to the tree. When the root is bitter the fruit will be bitter. The Lord said in Exodus 20:5 He said, He shows His anger to children to the 3rd and 4th generation of those who hate Him. So of the root is bitter, the 3rd and the 4th generations will be bitter. There are many of us because our roots were bitter, that’s why we are having bitterness in our lives today but I am here to decree in the mighty name of Jesus: Every bitterness in your roots shall be removed today in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) This is important because we want to pray for children and before we begin to talk with the fruit we need to deal with the root.

When you read 1 Samuel 2:31-32 God said to Eli He said there shall no longer be old men in his house. That means the people in his family, in his generation will be dying young. If there is a curse in your family that causes people to die prematurely, in the mighty name of Jesus! I break that curse today! I say I break that curse today. (Amen!)

In the same 1 Samuel 2:36 God said to Eli, those who remain in his family they will be begging for bread. Maybe you have noticed it that there are certain families no matter how hard they try they always end up poor. You see one that seem to be rising and all of a sudden something will happen and he will crash again because there is something wrong with the root. If there is something wrong with your root that is causing poverty, I decree today that that thing be destroyed in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

I don’t know if you have ever asked yourself the question, why is it that some people when they do a little job, they prosper mightily and you are there working like an elephant and you don’t get any result. Some people before 2 years they are already promoted 3 times. Some people were your classmates. They were not brighter than you, in fact you were beating them in the exams but now they are on top and you are still ready to apply. Whatever is in your roots that is hindering your progress I come against it tonight in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

I remember some years ago when I was in the University of Lagos. A professor went to attend an interview because he was dissatisfied with the situation in the university. So he saw an advert that they needed somebody and he knew he qualified for that post and the salary is much, much bigger than a professor. He went for the interview. When he opened the door of where they will interview him the fellow who was the chairman of the interview panel was one of his students who graduated four years before. Ahh! he said, I’m sorry I must be in the wrong place. They said, Ah no,no, no, are you for such-and-such a post? He said, Yes. Ah, this is the right place. He said, that is my boy! I taught him! He graduated 4 years ago. He’s now the chairman? To interview me? He said, I’m going back home!

Whatever is in your roots that will make you the servant of your children I come against it this morning in Jesus’ name! (Amen!) I say I come against it tonight in Jesus’ name! (Amen!). When the root is bitter the fruit will be bitter but when the root is sweet then the fruit will be sweet. God said in Exodus 20:6 I show mercy to thousands of those who love me and those who keep my commandments. There was a time when God was angry with Solomon. He said, I’m going to tear the kingdom away from you because you have been following idols. He said but for David’s sake – because of your father David – I will leave 1 tribe with your son… for your father’s sake – because the root was good. God said even though you deserve to perish, I will show mercy Because tonight your evil root will be changed to good one, you will begin to obtain mercy from the Lord, your children will begin to obtain mercy from the Lord, your grandchildren will begin to obtain mercy from the Lord (Amen!)

So it matters who is your root. It is very, very important. ……..

It matters who you call your spiritual father because his influence over you will be tremendous. Like father, like son. If it is well with your father it is going to be well with you because God will look down even when you don’t deserve mercy or favour he will consider your father’s case. I say it one more time, from tonight the mercy of God will be available to you. (Amen!) Now when the father decrees concerning his children it is almost as if God is making the decree. You know the story very well – in Genesis 27 – Jacob came and stole the blessing that belonged to Esau. As soon as he left Esau came and said I’ve brought the food you asked for. The father said, What I’ve eaten, I’m full, I enjoyed and I have blessed the person who brought the food. In verse 33 he said, And he shall be blessed. He said, there is nothing you can do about it. I’ve issued the decree. The decree has already gone out. I’m decreeing tonight: All of you who call me Daddy – you shall be blessed! I say, you shall be blessed! (Amen!)

Esau said, My father, Have you only one blessing – don’t you reserve something for me? The father said, something remains but I have already made him your Lord. He said, there’s nothing you can do about it any more. Oh, I can say that you too you will have money, you will have this, you. But I have already made him your Lord! I stand on the authority of the Word of God and I say to those of you who are here tonight and those who you represent: You will be the Lord of your enemy. I say, you will be the Lord of all your enemies.

And when a father curses his child that child is in trouble, serious trouble. If you read Genesis 49:1-4 Jacob was about to die so he said, Gather my children unto me. Let me tell you what will happen to you. Then he started with Reuben. He said, Reuben you are my first-born but you will not excel. If you follow the history of Reuben, when the children of Israel got to the border of the Promised Land – this Jordan River – that’s the Promised Land on the other side. Reuben said to Moses: I don’t want to go over this where I want to stay, I wasn’t surprised. His father had already said, he won’t excel. If there is any curse pronounced by your father or your brother, tonight on the authority given me by the most high God I cancel it now in Jesus name! (Amen!)

I mean Reuben saw the land, all he has to do is cross over. He said, no, I’m not going Moses was angry. How can you do this? This is what your fathers did and so on and so forth! Reuben said, I will follow you to the other side – fight for the land. Take the land from the original owners, hand it over to the others and then come back here. Ah-ahh You want to load a vehicle for transportation and then come down? Any spirit in your life that has made you a tout that causes you to work and don’t eat there I come against it tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Again, Elisha said to Gehazi in 2 Kings 5:20-27 He said, Gehazi because of what you have done the leprosy of Namaan will cleave on you. If he had stopped there it would have been good but he added, and unto thy seed forever! So everybody born in the line of Gehazi they end up with leprosy one way or the other! Many of you young ones you don’t know the custom of our forefathers. In the olden days, not too long ago, when somebody comes and he says he wants to marry your daughter, You say thank you go we will send to you.. Then they will go and find out the family of that boy. Any leper there before? Any mad fellow there before?  Anybody with an incurable disease there before? Because they know if there is somebody like that there before and y our daughter goes there to marry and she begins to produce children, what happened to grand father comes on the father  – its going to come out on the grandchild. Tonight on the authority given me by the most high God. I’m going right to your source. Every link with incurable diseases I decree them broken tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) I say I decree them broken in Jesus name! (Amen!).

When a father decrees a blessing the boy can’t escape it! No the blessing will be pursuing him wherever he goes. Just keep pursuing him. Jacob said, Judah – you shall your brothers praise and he said, the sceptre shall never depart from Judah. Today what do we call Jesus? We call him the lion of the Tribe of Judah because the father said, Judah, your brother shall praise you. How many thousands are praising Jesus Christ today? Judah there will always be a king in your house and the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords! is coming from the tribe of Judah. That’s why I’m saying to all of you my children. Right down your generation you shall always be head! (Amen!) I say, Right down your generation, greatness will be associated with you. Prosperity will be associated with you! I didn’t here your ‘Amen’ (Amen!)

One funny fellow said something. She came to the special Holy Ghost Service, attended the impartation service, waited for the Sunday service and heard all my prayers and all my pronouncements and came and said, Daddy I’m afraid, said, Afraid of what? She said, These prayers are becoming too many! I said, Can prayers be too many? She said, I hope you are not going yet? I laughed! Let me tell you the truth, if Jesus tarries I’m not leaving till I’m over a hundred. (Amen!) The promise of God is that a child will die a hundred years old. If anybody tells you that I’m dead, tell him he’s lying! There’s no death in my eyes at all! This year is a year of foundation: I know what God told me!: Whatever He settled this year is going to affect you for the rest of your life.  So if you are hearing the prayers and you are hearing the pronouncements, it’s because I want your life to be settled this year! So I’m saying it one more time – right down your generation – there will be greatness! (Amen!) There will be prosperity! There’ll be victory – there will be joy! Let me hear you shout ‘Amen’ (Amen!) Go ahead give the Lord a big round of applause.

Now. Let me say but why do you love us so much? Why do you want us to be great? Well there is a selfish reason – a great son makes a great father. When the son is great then the son can say I am the father of so-and-so. The only claim to greatness that Jesse had is that he’s the father of David. The only thing that made Mary great is because she’s the mother of Jesus. There are several other girls around; she was not the only virgin alive at that time. She would have died another woman but because she was the mother of the greatest, that is why she became great. Who is Hannah?? That’s a woman, one of the wives in Israel but because she gave birth to Samuel nobody can forget Samuel. I say you are going to be great! (Amen!)  I say it one more time – you will be great! You will be very great! You will be very, very great so that I can proudly say, that’s one of my children – he’s the governor, he’s the President, he’s the owner of that bank, he’s the one who’s in charge of all those aeroplanes. You shall be great! (Amen!) I say you shall be great! (Amen!)

O Thank You Father! Glory be to God! So even though I will be praying for you again, we will allow you now to bring the children forward. …

…. Teach your child right now, how to give to God because that is going to influence how quickly he or she will prosper. When I was a little child, when we were going to church my mother will say: take your half penny, make sure you drop it in the church. They taught me when I was very small, now nobody needs to teach me. It has become part and parcel of me. The ushers will place baskets along the line. Put something in the hand of your child. As you are bringing the child forward, as they lay hands in the child, let he child with his own hands, drop something in the basket for God. The Lord will receive your children and He will receive your offerings. So I hear  ‘Amen’ from somebody? I didn’t hear your ‘Amen!’ loud and clear! Brethren let’s take position, the band will be playing and then you bring the children forward in a very orderly fashion – let’s move fast! . Let’s move fast….

In the name of Jesus, every head that has been touched today, will be a blessed head (Amen!) That head will refuse sorrow. That head will refuse defeat. That head will refuse poverty. That head will refuse failure. Everything in your root that is contrary for the will f God in your life, I cancel it now in Jesus name! (Amen!) I go the source of every river in your towns and villages. Whatever may be in those streams and rivers that may be responsible for backwardness in your towns and villages, I decree that it be changed now in Jesus name! (Amen!) Whatever is in the milk that you took from your mother’s breast that may be responsible for any form of ailment I decree that the consuming fire of God consume it now in Jesus name! (Amen!) From now on, when sickness sees any of your children sickness will run, death will run, demons will run. Beginning from now both you and your children will begin t prosper. You will be great but your children will be greater than you. Your name shall never vanish from the earth. From today onwards you’ll be going upward. You will never go down again. So shall it be! So shall it be! In Jesus mighty name we have decreed. If you believe that let me hear your ‘Amen!’ loud and clear! Say it one more time! And yet another time and put your hands together for the Almighty God! Glory be to God! Now you may be seated.

We want to thank the Almighty God for what He has done tonight.  So we have our thanksgiving service. We will remain seated. The ushers will attend to us. We will show the Almighty God that we are a grateful lot. What the God is doing here is not happening anywhere else in the whole world. Nowhere else in the whole world so we are a very blessed people and as we thank God He will continue to do more. My advice to all of us and to all those who are precious to you is that they don’t miss any Holy Ghost Service this year. Everyone will be special. The elders have a saying: Little, little sacrifice is what keeps the living alive. And they said, little blessings, little curses, I prefer the blessings. And when you add together little, little blessings and they begin to come to 1,000 then you know you have got it made for life. By the time this year is over, as God lives you will look back and say this is the best year of my life so far so we thank the Almighty God and those who have testimony can come forward quickly……

  Alleluia!

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Once upon a time, one young man looked around and everything was dark, terribly dark. He was surrounded on all sides by enemies, enemies that were too strong for him ….. and then he did something unusual. The situation was hopeless, darkness everywhere and then he began to praise God!

When he began to praise God, certain things began to happen. Number one, God arose for him. (Amen!) God will arise for you today. (Amen!) Number 2, God began to fight his battles for him.

In the mighty Name of Jesus! (Amen!) Father, I want to thank You for these Your children that were born in the month of May. and so Father, I pray that in the morning they will find favour and in the afternoon they will find favour and in the evening they will find favour, in the night time they will find favour. every door they knock at will be opened unto them. Every where that they go the presence of God will go with them. Every one of you, as you are beginning a new year, there’ll be new joy for you. (Amen!) New blessings for you. (Amen!) There’ll be new successes for you. (Amen!) In all areas of your life God will be gracious to you. (Amen!) So shall it be. (Amen!) In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Well let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) You can be seated. Shake hands with one or two people and tell them this is my month of grace. I’m going to find favour with God. I’m going to find favour with man. In all areas of my life there’ll be divine favour.

Acts 13:21-22, as we continue with our series anointing for greatness, we find something very interesting here. Acts 13:21-22

And afterward they desired a king: and God gave unto them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years. And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.

He raised up David, God is going to raise up somebody here tonight. (Amen!) As I was studying the life of David and I came to this particular passage I found those words particularly challenging: He raised up David.  To raise up means to promote, that is why I know this is going to be your month of promotion. (Amen!) Because Psalm 75:6-7 establishes it for us that promotion comes from God. Promotion does not come from the East or from the West or from the South but God is the judge. He raises up one .. He will raise you up today. (Amen!)

In 1 Samuel 2:8, the Bible tells us that God can raise up a beggar from the dunghill and cause him to sit among princes. That means no matter how low you are now, that is not how you are going to end, God is going to raise you up. One day before you die you are still going to dine with Presidents. (Amen!) You don’t believe me. If you believe me your Amen would have been loud. I’m not the one who will do it! He’s the One who already did it that is going to raise you up. And when God decides to raise up somebody, who can stop Him? Who can stand in His way? Esther was a slave girl. when God decided to make her a queen. Joshua was an ordinary servant of Moses; he was Moses messenger when the Almighty God decided this is going to be my next President, who could stop Him? Whether you like it or not there is somebody here tonight you are going to reach the top. (Amen!) I say you will reach the very, very top! (Amen!)

To promote or raise up means to place where it can be seen. If you are trying to show me something and I can’t see, I say, raise it up, raise it up! When I was sitting down here the people on the other side couldn’t see me but when I came to this higher platform they can now see! Very soon, the whole world will see you! (Amen!) Why? Because according to Matthew 5:14-15 Jesus Christ said, You are the light of the world. You are the what? The light of the world. A city that is set n a hill cannot be moved. By divine decree you are the light of the world. One way or the other the Almighty God is going to say to someone here tonight Arise, shine for your light is come. Arise shine for your light is come. Let me hear your ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

It took God only one night to bring Joseph from the prison to the front glare of Egypt. Why because He diced to raise Him up. He gave Pharaoh 2 things that he couldn’t interpret. I don’t know who God is going to give some dreams to tonight. Don’t worry we will already be shining. Some years ago at the beginning of the month God spoke to us and said, I will advertise my church. We all said ‘Amen’, we didn’t know how its going to happen. How will He do it? We didn’t know. You see when God says He wants to do something for you, don’t use your little brain trying to understand how. So it happened that a federal Minister was misquoted. The Press said that the Minister said he was going to fall down Redemption Camp. The Minister said, “Ahhhh I didn’t say so but the following day he came here; the following Friday television crew of the whole nation so those who didn’t know we were here suddenly knew we were here! Those who didn’t know you are alive they will know very soon. (Amen!) I say God will advertise your greatness.

To raise up means to assist to a height beyond personal ability. To raise up is different from to climb up. If you reach a height  by your own ability you will climb up. But if God decides to raise you up. It means He will take you to a height that it is not humanly possible to reach. And I’m saying to somebody here, the helper of the helpless is going to take you to a height you never thought possible. Psalm 3:2-3 David said, Many people have said there is no help for him but Lord you are the lifter up of my head. There are many of us who are here tonight. At one time or the other the enemy has said, There’s no help for him. There’s no help for her, He’s not going to succeed; he can’t reach the top!  They say that one, leaving somebody out of their equation, leaving God out of their calculation. Tonight because Jesus lives the helper of the helpless will help you, David said, Lord, Thy gentleness had made me great. Psalm 18:35 in other words I am not great because of my ability, I am great because of Your gentleness O Lord. I am great simply because You decided to make me great. Because the Lord lives you will be great (Amen!) I say you will be great. (Amen!)

Some of you know this story. When I was doing my PhD Programme my supervisor went on leave and gave me some assignment to do. He gave me so much assignment that he was sure I won’t even be one quarter of the way by the time he returns. By the time he came I’ve done everything so he called me and said, Listen, I know you are a Christian and I know you won’t lie. Who helped you? Because there’s no way you could have done all this thing within this time! Somebody helped you!” I said, “That is true sir.” He said, “Who helped you?” I know if I said Jesus he would laugh at me because he will say Jesus is not a mathematician. So when he said, Who helped me? I said, Professor Emmanuel. His name shall be called Emmanuel. Believe it or not he’s a professor of mathematics. So when I said, Professor Emmanuel, he said, Thank you! I know you will tell the truth. But then he said, Of which Department? Professor Emmanuel is going to help somebody here tonight.

O Thank You Father! The Lord said there is somebody here tonight, He said I should tell you, the time for you to enjoy rest, quietness and peace has come. Now if you are that person let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Now to raise up means to promote, it means to place where it could be seen. It means to assist to a height beyond personal ability and that implies that fellow that is raised up is favoured. There were several people but God raised up David. Even in the family of /David there were many big boys but David found favour with God that is why God raised him up. There is somebody here tonight who is going to find favour with God. Psalm 30:5 says, In his favour is life. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy is coming in the morning. By the time the sun rises tomorrow somebody here will be singing for joy! (Amen!) The Bible tells us that when they sold Jesus into slavery, he found favour and instead of  being a slave he became Managing Director. Genesis 39:1-6 The Bible says he was a slave but his master handed over to him everything, so much so that it was Joseph who now decided what food the master would eat! The reason why many of us are still struggling today is because we are yet to find favour with God. Tonight as the Lord lives, you will find that favour with God. (Amen!)

Six years ago we decided to start a branch of this church in the Republic of Ireland. They told me don’t waste your time, it’s not going to work. They told me, the only Pentecostal church started in that Republic, by Americans, had to close down. So where are you coming from, you coming from the jungle of Nigeria? I said, My own is different. I have favour with God. My own is different. Tell your neighbour: My own is different! Say it with confidence: My own is different. Last month I went to conduct Holy Ghost Service in Ireland. We already have 32 parishes there. (Amen!) We rented one of the largest auditoriums in the whole nation. Everywhere was jammed and people were standing outside. If I remember by the grace of God, next month I will show you a little bit of the video. Because of divine favour. That’s why I say, from tonight onwards, everywhere you go the favour of God will follow you. Everything you do, the favour of God will attend to it. (Amen!)

Now the one who is raised up, not only has he found favour with God, such a fellow can claim he is blessed, because  promotion surely is not a curse. Deuteronomy 28:1-2 and verse 13 , Moses said if you will hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God and to do all that I command you this day then these blessings shall pursue you and follow you. One of the blessings is the Lord shall make you the head and not the tail. You will be above only and never beneath. You wouldn’t even say ‘Amen’ to that one? (Amen!)

In Genesis 24: 24-25 that man said, I am Abraham’s servant and the Lord has blessed my master greatly and he has become great. Anyone that God blesses automatically becomes great. You also remember when Jacob came and stole the blessing of Esau and Esau came and said I have come now to receive the blessing. And his father said it’s late. Esau said bless me also! The father said, I have already made your brother your lord. I have already pronounced the blessing that he will be head, so it doesn’t matter what you do, you can’t catch up with him.  So tonight I bless you in the mighty name of Jesus! (Amen!). No matter how hard the enemy tries they won’t catch up with you! (Amen!)

The one who is raised up is blessed. I’ve told you before that I am what I am today by the grace of God and by the blessing of my mother because any time I made her happy. She will say, You will call one person, 200 hundred will answer. At that time, I didn’t know what she meant now I know when I see the effect of that blessing. That’s why I’m pronouncing on you too today that you  will call one fellow, 10, 000 will answer! (Amen!) And the 10,000 will answer! The elders have a saying – they say it is not struggling that makes people rich. If it is struggling, if it is working hard and struggling that makes people rich, those people who carry 2 bags of cement on their shoulders to work, they should be the richest people in the nation. The Bible says the blessings of the Lord maketh rich and addeth no sorrows. Proverbs 10:22 That blessing that  makes great receive today in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight  today, the Lord said I should tell you, you will no longer lose ground to the enemy. (Amen!) You will no more lose ground to the enemy. (Amen!)

Now to raise up is a process. It involves so many things. If I am to raise up this tambourine. There are certain things I must do before I could raise it up. I will tell you some of them very soon but I have to go down, come in contact with it, hold it, carry it, carry it upward and it’s a process. If God is going to raise you up and I know He will raise you up – there is a process. The first thing is He has to locate you. I don’t know how many hundreds of thousands are here. I can’t see many of you. Some of you are far away and God may decide He wants to raise up just one fellow – I know I will be one of them. I know my wife will be one of them. Maybe one or two others will join us. So He has to locate the person.

In Acts 13:22 that we read earlier on. He said, I have found David, I have located David. The beauty of God locating you is this; He knows your address, He knows your current address. It doesn’t matter how many times you have moved. He knows where you are because He’s an all-knowing God. You can’t hide from Him which is good news because He’s looking for someone that He wants to raise up and He’s going to locate somebody here tonight. (Amen!) Locating you, knowing your address is full of meanings one of which is that your prayers will not go unnoticed. You know I used to wonder – all these thousands are crying to God at the same time. How does He know what I’m asking for and what you are asking for?

When I was a younger Christian, when we  come to early morning prayers, at Ebute-Metta, and they say Let’s pray for Nigeria, everybody will be shouting and praying loudly. Let’s pray for the church! Oh it will be louder still. The moment they say, Everybody now pray for yourself suddenly the noise goes down. All those who have been praying in English before will now begin to pray in their mother tongue. So the rest of  you will not hear what you are saying. But God hears all, He will hear you tonight. He will hear you tonight. (Amen!)

In Acts 9:10-11 He was talking about Saul of Tarsus in a street called Strait, in the house of a certain man. It said behold he prayeth. This is the address and he’s praying there. |He knows your address and He knows you are here to pray tonight. The prayers you have already prayed, He has already heard. The prayers you will yet pray tonight He will hear also in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

So Thank You Father! The Lord said there is somebody here, you have….. the best way to describe it – you have a troublesome stomach. The Lord asked me to tell you He had taken care of that. (Amen!) That troublesome stomach will no longer trouble you.

Now locating someone means that fellow has attracted attention. In this crowd for God to locate somebody that fellow may need to attract God’s attention. This could be as a result of violent prayer. I mean you know the story of Bartimaeus in Matthew 10:46-82. It said a great multitude was following Jesus but Bartimaeus made up his mind God must locate me! So he began to pray loudly. They even asked him to shut up but the Bible said he prayed a lot more, louder until God located one beggar in a great multitude. That is why when we say let us pray and some of you are murmuring. I told you before it is true God hears all prayers, whether you pray quietly or loudly He hears, no doubt about that but who is He going to attend to first? That’s the question. Now, I’ve given this illustration before: 3 highly-educated people were involved in an accident. We’re talking about real gentlemen and they rushed them to the emergency ward of the hospital where there is only one doctor and the 3 of them  saw the 1 doctor coming and one of them said, ” He should know that I’m here because I need help. So he kept his mouth shut. The second one said, “Today I think I better talk so that this man will come to me. But since I’m a gentleman I must speak like a gentleman so he said, “Doctor, I need help man!” And the third one said, “This is the day of troubles, not the day of grammar!” He said, “Doctor! Help!” Which of the 3 is going to receive the first attention? Do I hear somebody say, “Jesus help!”? He will help you in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

When Peter was walking on water then suddenly he began to sink. Supposing he decided to be a gentle fisherman and say, “Ahh, after all Jesus can see me sinking and then in any case He has taught us how to pray – our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come….” How many gallons of water would he have taken? When he found himself sinking, he cried out, “Lord! Help!” And the Lord grabbed him by the hand. Jesus will grab your hand today in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

The one you hated must have attracted attention either by persistent, loud prayer, or it could be by loud praise. In Mark 16:25-26 the Bible said at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God and the prisoners heard them. It was not a quiet prayer meeting. They were not praising God internally. They woke up other prisoners with their praise. No wonder God located them. From many of us here tonight God wants to locate somebody, probably the one whose ‘Alleluia’ is the loudest (Alleluia!) Thank You It was not a feeble ‘Alleluia’ that pulled down the wall of Jericho. It wasn’t a plastic shout that pulled down the wall of Jericho. No it was a boisterous, violent, loud praise that brought down the wall of Jericho. It was a shout that brought it down, it was the praise that brought about an earthquake! (Alleluia!) Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Amen! God bless you! You may be seated!

The Lord says because you have praised Him tonight He will give you something to shout about. So shall it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

So people could be located because they prayed or because they praised or because of persistent giving. Cornelius was located because he persistently gave. Or because of uncommon sacrifice. That’s how Solomon was located. Or because of dedication to the service of the Lord. That’s how Zechariah was located. Or because of purity of life. That’s how Mary the mother of Jesus was located. The angel was sent to a virgin not a harlot. Or God can locate someone just because he is God. He said I will be merciful unto whom I will be merciful. I will show compassion on whom I will show compassion. Romans 9:15. That’s how He located me. When He located me I didn’t know how to pray. I didn’t know how to shout. Surely I wasn’t anything called holy bit he found me all the same because He decided to be merciful. Who is He going to find tonight? Wave your hand to Him and say, I am the one. Go on, wave your hand to Him and say, I am the one!

So the process of raising up involves location as a result of having attracted attention which will now lead to a decision to help. After God has located the one He wants to raise up He has to take a decision. Do I want to help him or do I first leave him where he is? After He located Daniel with all his shouts for help, the Bible said He stood still, taking  a decision, finally He decided, Let me help him and then He said, Go and bring him. Today, the Almighty God will send a vessel to somebody and say, Go and bring him, go and bring him, I want to help him! God will help somebody here tonight (Amen!)

And then after that…. Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here, your palms and the soles of your feet are always wet but now they are dry. He has taken care of the situation for you.

After God has located the person that He wants to raise, the person who has attracted His attention, He has decided now I want to help, the next thing is that the hand of God will come in contact with the person. There must be personal contact. Even if that is all I am able to share with you tonight if you get that one that should settle it. Because whenever God touched a man a miracle must happen. If God touched you tonight your problems are over.

I will quickly go through some examples. When God touches the blind, the blind will begin to see. John 9:1-7 There was a man who was born blind, and Jesus located him and decided to help him and what did he do. He spit on the ground, made mud of the clay and touched his eyes. And asked him to go and wash and he came back seeing. Is it the mud which made him see? Is it the water with which he washed. If it is mud that  will make you see there will be no blind man left in the whole world. All they need to do is also spit on the ground, make some mud and put on their own eyes. No its not the mud, it’s the hand behind the mud because the one who touched the mud is the one who said, as long as I am in the world I am the light of the world. When light touches darkness, darkness must disappear. All of you who are blind, blind mentally, blind spiritually, God will touch you today in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

I am saying it because of those people who have never heard the story because its going to help somebody. I was preaching in Sapele to a small group of people. Suddenly I was in the spirit and I saw a vision. I saw one boy who was blind and suddenly I saw his eyes open. Quickly I announced it – there’s a boy here, there’s a boy here, whose blind. God wants to open his eyes. If you are the parent of the boy bring him forward. Nobody moved. Ah. I know what I saw. Oh if the boy is at home, bring him, I will wait! Nobody moved. I waited for one hour nobody came. I was sad. I saw that we were losing a miracle and we had to continue on our journey because the programme was going on in Akure also. We arrived in Akure somebody was preaching. I was sitting at the back and as he was preaching, suddenly one man got up and he was holding a boy in the hand and the boy was the boy I saw in my vision and the man was taking the boy towards the altar and I knew that the ushers will drive them away, they won’t let them get to the altar particularly as the preacher was still preaching. But you see the time for that boy had come – he can’t wait till the preacher finished preaching just as tonight now your miracle will come before I finish preaching. So I got up and I began to run so I can get to this man and this child before the ushers pushed them to the ground. As I was hurrying towards this father and son, the little boy asked who was behind him and turned to see and as he turned his eyes opened. (Amen!) I didn’t touch him, nobody prayed for him but God touched him. God is going to touch somebody here tonight. (Amen!) If you are the one let me hear your Amen loud and clear.

When God touches the incurable the incurable will be cured. In the olden days the worst disease was leprosy. Before cancer and aids and all of them began to come. Somebody had leprosy then that  was sentence of death. But in Matthew 8:1-3 the Bible says and

As he was coming down from the mountain, a great multitude followed him. And, behold, a leper came to him and fell down at his feet and worshipped him, and said, if thou wilt, thou can make me clean. And Jesus touched him  and said I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

When the doctor says your case is beyond help, what they are saying is, humanly speaking, there is nothing more we can do. Not ‘Jesusly’ speaking …. I hope you will forgive my English. You understand what I mean: humanly speaking, there is nothing we can do – that is the report of man, that’s not the report of God. Because with God nothing shall be impossible. Tell your neighbour: My own will not be impossible with God!……

……..………. And those of you that are still coming – hurry up now, this is the final call. I know that many of you are coming from a long distance but hurry up now this is the final call. Come and cry to God and say, God save my soul! Be merciful unto me! Be merciful unto me Lord! Be merciful unto me Lord! Save my soul! Almighty God save my soul! Cleanse me in Your blood! Forgive all my sins.! Write my name in the Book of Life! I will serve You! I will serve You for the rest of my life! Hurry up quickly those of you who are still coming! Hurry up! Hurry up! I’m about to pray now for the salvation of your souls. This is your day. It is the day of salvation! Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord! Thank You Almighty God And if there is anyone still on the way just make sure you get here before I stop praying. Thank You Father! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Father, I want to thank You for Your Word that has gone forth tonight. I want to thank You for these people who have come forward. Your word says no man can come unto me unless my father draws him. Thank You for drawing these people and thank you that they have not refused your drawing. Accept our thanks in Jesus Name! (Amen!) We have come to you Lord, please remember Your promise. You said that anyone who will come to You, You will in no wise cast out. They are here now. Receive them in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Forgive them in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Cleans them 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 call on You, answer them in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Don’t let them ever go back to the world and every miracle that You are going to do here tonight, do their own also in Jesus Name! (Amen!) And for the rest of their lives let them serve You. (Amen!) In Your Kingdom, don’t let them be found wanting. (Amen!) In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen! 

Now those of you who are in front let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Congratulations. I am rejoicing with you and everybody here is also rejoicing with you. I want you to know that there is joy in heaven because of you tonight. And I want to make you one promise, by the special grace of God, from tonight I will be praying for you. So I need your names. your address and your prayer requests so I can continue to pray for you. Now you  must give the correct address because when I ask God to send your miracle, it will be sent to the address that you put down; There are some Pastors who are waiting; they will help me to collect this information  and then you come back and join us. So if you follow this brother who is waving a piece of wood, he will take you to where the Pastors are waiting. They will collect this information and then you come back quickly. Lets begin to pray now…….

Now we are about to pray but before we begin to pray there are those of us that have some big testimonies – every testimony is big but some are bigger than others. So if you have these big testimonies and you want to share, you can go to the back of the altar now so that the pastors can listen to your testimonies and then we listen at a later time. If you have big testimonies to share, go to the back of the altar and meet the Pastors.

Are you ready to pray? I didn’t hear your answer. Do you know that God is here tonight. Are you sure He’s going to answer your prayers? Then stand on your feet. Let me hear you shout one big Alleluia! (Alleluia!) If you like pray gently, but if you want to be the one that God will locate first then pray it with all your strength. Father, – I mean, loud and clear – Touch me today! Touch my body, touch my soul, touch my spirit, touch my business, touch my family, touch my church – Touch me today! Talk to the Almighty God!….. Touch me Almighty God  Touch my body, touch my soul, touch my spirit, touch my finances, touch my family, touch Your church O Lord! Give me an all-round church today! Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now begin to cry and say, Father! Hold me tight! Don’t let me fall again! Talk to the Almighty God! Thank You Jesus! Blessed be Your Holy Name! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And then you will say, Father, You are the burden-bearer, carry me and my burdens! Go ahead! Talk to Almighty God! You are the burden-bearer, carry me and my burdens. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And now you say, Father! Raise me up! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty! Raise me up Father! Raise me up! Raise me up! Raise me up! Raise me up! Raise me up O Lord! Raise me up! Lift me up!……

Now I want you to pray for yourselves. You know the areas where you need divine intervention. Go ahead! Talk to Almighty God!……

You want to dance some more? I know the joy of the Lord is here tonight. And that joy will never end but we want to continue because we want to end a bit early tonight because Saturday is a very busy day for us. And those concerned know what that one means. They know that Saturday is a very busy day for us. So we will take some testimonies, we will then hear a word or two of prophecy from the Lord then it will be time to round up. While we are getting ready to listen to these testimonies, let me ask you is there any one here tonight who is sure, I mean absolutely sure that God has touched you? All Right, then, as is our custom we would want to thank the Lord….. Thank You Lord! Amen, we will keep on praising Him forever….

My name is Emakazi Chikeze. My story goes like this. It was the year 2000. I got married and after I got married… I’m always going on evangelism and after that when I got married they came to attack me, with horrors,  at about 1.30 midnight and my private part missed and I prayed for some weeks and my private part came back. And again my wife conceived and when my wife conceived, it came to the delivery, they said she could not deliver. I went to the church …. after some prayers again my wife delivered. Now I have 2 children with me. Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord! My name is Femi Thomas. I just want to give glory to God for what the Lord did for me today. Daddy mentioned, he said there is someone here that his legs are wet and his arms are wet, that they will get dry now! And it got dry. I thank God that God brought me out of everything … Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord! ‘Alleluia’ My name is Akin Jackson. I want to appreciate Almighty God for what He has done in my life. I give God the glory. About 5 years ago I had migraine, chronic migraine that I could not stand on my feet but today I give God the glory I can stand on my feet.  I went for  one of Pastor Adeboye’s programme at Ebute-Metta, Mount Zion Hour. When he laid hands on me I was healed I received my total healing. Secondly, I give God the glory. Sometimes last year I was sick, I was terribly ill. I went to a hospital and they diagnosed me of kidney stones. The doctor said if they are going to operate me they have to take me to America. But I give God the glory, I listened to one of Daddy’s ministrations on the TV and our Daddy said that every terminator in our life would be terminated, all sorts of diseases that are terminators, that they’ll be terminated and I received my total healing. Praise the Lord!

Praise God. My name is Felix Marcus Omebodu. My own case is a case of diabetes which I had for 7 years and I came for this  Holy Ghost Service last year for the first time and during the ministration by our Daddy GO I got healed. Two days ago I went for the SBS test , which means passive blood sugar test to test the level of sugar in my body and to the  Glory of God, everything disappeared. Praise God!

Praise the Lord! I was having fibroid and I did operation in 1988 and I did not know that later the fibroid grew again. So, when I was giving birth in 2000 it was discovered by the doctor. I told  God that the time of ignorance had passed, that I will not do operation again. So since  I’ve been coming to Holy Ghost Service I’ve been thanking God, thinking that it had been operated on by God in 2001, not knowing that it was there, so  earlier this year I went for a scan and it was proved positive that the fibroid was still there. So when I took it to the doctor she told me that I would be operated upon. Now I rejected it that that one is the doctor’s report, that my Father will do it. So I went to my spiritual father and we prayed and told that request in the spirit. I now asked the doctor, will that fibroid have any effect in my womb. So she told me it depends on where it is.  I now told her I want to know where it is. Then she told me that I should go for another test which is HFP. Before then I was in my dream, I saw Mummy GO. Pastor Folu Adeboye, so when, in that dream we were together just like friends. So I had it in mind that she would pray for me concerning that fibroid. So all of a sudden 3 girls visited her. I just had that ministration that if I don’t tell her now, she will not have chance because she will attend to those girls. So I now told her: Mummy, I want you to pray concerning this. So she now told me, what is that in your hand. I said, Like what? I collected it like this, the thing entered my mouth, I began to bleed, within 5 to 10 minutes I was still bleeding and later I pulled out everything. And when  I went back to check the result, when the thing came out it was proved negative, that the fibroid had gone! Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord! My name is Mrs. Bukky Eze, Twice I’ve been pregnant and the 2 times I’ve lost the boys. When we come for the August Convention I came and met Daddy here and I was about explaining what happened to me, he just said, he doesn’t want to hear and then he prayed he said he come against every hindrance in my life. So we came for the Convention I was sitting over there and I was asking the Lord, I was asking for triplets and our Daddy said, there is someone here the Lord said, that you need only a baby to pray to and that all else will a follow. And I give God the praise that I came here February Holy Ghost Service with my baby. Here is my baby. Praise the Lord!

Praise God. My name is Ronke Ogunleye I want to testify of God’s goodness and mercy in my life. In August 2003 I was diagnosed, having abnormal cells in my cervix. and I went abroad to have laser treatment. A biopsy was done and they found out that they were cancerous cells and they said I should do a radical hysterectomy to stop the spread of cancer cells to the other areas the surgeon said there were no more cancerous cells in my body.  Praise the Lord! I also want to thank God for the healing of my daughter Oluwafunmilayo and my son Ayotomila. Thank You Jesus!

Praise the Lord! I’m Bolaji Odufuye from Higher Ground Model Parish, Akowonjo in Ikotun. I was in Ijebu-Mushin on Tuesday and the brethren from Prosperity Model Courts Parish invited me to pray with one of their members who had been pregnant for the past 3 years. She has not delivered that baby for the past 3 years. But when we prayed, immediately after the prayers I told them that they should bring the woman to the Camp Ground today. So before I left Ijebu that day we finalised the arrangement to bring the woman to the Camp Ground. By the grace of God when I called them this morning that I am already on my way to the Camp that I’m going to wait for them at the Information Bureau, that the anointing at the Camp is greater than our own. So God will do it faster at the Camp. When I called they told me that woman has delivered that baby! 3 years pregnancy! Go to Ijebu-Mushin today. you will see that baby. I had to leave Lagos and go to Ijebu this morning. I saw the baby with my eyes and I saw the mother. They are well and they are doing fine. The whole of Osule is in festive mood because God of heaven delivered a 3-year pregnancy this morning without getting to the Camp! Praise God!

Praise the Lord! My name is Eniola Adekunle. for 12 years I’ve been having this stomach trouble and this evening our father-in-the-Lord said that there is someone here that you are having stomach trouble and I looked for it but I didn’t see it. I came in this evening with the stomach trouble. I praise God. Praise the Lord!

Praise God! Praise the living Jesus! My name is Ogunleye, Ronke. My testimony is this. I want to thank God for what God has done in my life tonight. Last week I started having stomach pain. as I was just here I was lifting my hand to say that God You should please o touch my life tonight that I should not feel that thing again. And now I thank God that I cannot feel them again Praise God!

There are miracles that cannot wait. My own is one of them. (Amen!) How many of you will get your miracles now? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) While I was preparing for this night’s  service the Lord told me that someone would be here today, He said I should tell you, that from today you, you will eave the company of the frustrated. (Amen!) He told me that there’d be  someone here today who had been crying to God for wisdom, He said I should tell you that He will baptise you in the river of wisdom. (Amen!) And then He said someone would be here today, He said, you would understand when I tell you, but very soon you will begin to rule in the midst of your enemies. (Amen!) Let’s stand on our feet. Let’s lift our hands to the Almighty God and bless His Holy Name for the wonderful things He has already done and for the greater things that He will yet do. Father, we just want to thank You! We want to give You all glory. We want to give You all honour. You have been so good, so good, so good! What a wonderful God you are! Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You Father! Glory be to Your Name! Glory be to Your Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have thanked.

Now before I bless the offering and then we go, there are still some people who still feel  unless the GO prays for me I don’t think I will be completely well… now this place is not large enough to contain you so I will just ask you to raise your hand wherever you are and God will touch you there and for 2 minutes tell God what  you would have told me if we were to sit one by one. What you would have told me, tell it to God now, then I can pray for you and everything will be okay. For 2 minutes tell God. Tell Him this is what I’m talking about, this is my problem, this is the breakthrough I need, this is the victory I must have. Blessed be Your Holy Name! … Thank You Father!  Now let’s begin to bring our prayers to a close. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

My Father and my God, we want to bless Your Holy Name for the marvellous things you have done in our midst tonight. Thank You for the wonderful testimonies. Thank You for healing cancer. Thank You for taking care of all kinds of physical problems. Thank You for deliverance.  Thank You for every blessing Lord. Thank You for the souls that were saved. Thank You for the joy of the Lord. Thank You for our brothers from the US. Glory be to Your Holy Name! Accept our thanks in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Our Father, Your word says it will be to us according to our faith. All these people who said they want the prayers of the General Overseer. everything they have spoken to You about, before Sunday morning do it for them. (Amen!) Father, when it is testimony time, all those who lifted up their hands to speak to You now, let them be able to say, on Saturday morning – I had something from God, He has already done it for me! So let it be in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Before they get home tonight, Father, surprise them, surprise every one of them.

Now this is the thanksgiving offering of your children. Father, bless it, sanctify it, use it for your glory. Even now I pray Father that they will never owe again in Jesus Name!, All they need to succeed in life, to prosper, to live above debts, give them to them in Jesus Name!. Now as you go, God will go with you. (Amen!) He will bless you. (Amen!) He will protect you. He will promote you. He  will meet all your  need. You will rule in the midst of your enemies. (Amen!) You will never again be in the department of the frustrated. So shall it be! So shall it be! In the Kingdom of God you  will not be found wanting. Your light will shine! The devil will not put out your little light! If it had been put out it will be relit in Jesus Name! (Amen!) And in the Kingdom of God you  will not be found wanting. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let me hear your ‘Amen’ loud and clear. Make it louder still!  One more time! Then let me hear you shout a big Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

 God Bless You!

  Alleluia!

 

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

COMMANDED TO BE GREAT

4th of June, 2004

Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) I have no doubts at all that somebody from tonight will become a terror to the enemy. If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Somebody is leaving the categories of ordinary people tonight and is going to join the categories of the special. If you are the one let me hear you shout a special Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

Before the Lord Jesus Christ performed His greatest miracle while here on earth, when He raised Lazarus from the dead…. I hope  you are hearing us clearly at that side? All right …. The raising of Lazarus from the dead. He first of all said, Father, I thank you. Glory be to God! Before, the wall of Jericho fell the children of Israel shouted a praise to the Lord (Alleluia……!) Amen!

Two of the major things that will happen in your life tonight is that number 1 the greatest miracle you have ever experienced is going to happen. And number 2 every wall between you and your Promised Land is coming down. So for this to happen. I’m going to give you quality time to praise God – just say: Father, I want to thank You in advance, I want to bless Your Name, like never before I want to say Thank You,  I bless Your Name. I magnify Your Holy Name, I am thanking You in advance! Father, I thank You for the marvelous things You are about to do tonight! I want to glorify Your Name. I want to praise You. I want to adore You! I want to lift You high! I want You to know that I appreciate You. I trust You that You will do marvelous things in my life tonight! I know You will never fail me and I know all the walls of Jericho before me are coming down! I just want to say Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! in advance. I want to say Glory be to Your Name! Father we praise You! King of Kings! Lord of Lords! the I AM that I AM! the Ancient of Days!, the Unchangeable Lord! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Glorious in holiness! Wonder-working God! I want to say Thank You! in advance! I want to bless Your Name in advance! I want to magnify Your Holy Name! Go ahead Praise Him! Like you’ve never done before! Open up Your mouth to Him and let Him know that You trust Him that He will do something marvelous in your life today! Thank You!… We worship you! We magnify Your Holy Name! Blessed be Your Name! forever …… Thank You Father! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord!  In Jesus’ mighty Name we have worshipped! (Amen!)

Now you lift your voice to the Almighty God! Loud and clear and say, Father, in the mighty name of Jesus , let every wall of Jericho in my way, fall down flat! Go ahead talk to the Almighty God!! Father, in the mighty name of Jesus let every wall of Jericho in my way, fall down flat right now! … In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Brethren, one of the greatest hindrances to greatness is a generational curse so you are going to cry to God! Father, every curse in my generation, cancel, fire and reverse! Let’s cry to the Almighty God!. Every curse in my generation Lord, cancel it and reverse it… Talk to the Almighty!  … In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Nobody comes to the world accidentally. Every one who comes into the world, it is for a purpose but some people’s purpose in  life are delayed so you are going to cry to God – Father, everything delaying my greatness, remove it today O Lord!… Cry to the Almighty God! – Father, everything that is delaying my greatness, remove it today O Lord…. Thank You! Thank You! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Many a times we hear people say, I’ve done everything and yet, no breakthrough! Doing everything is not the same as doing the right thing

Cry to God and say, Father, Teach me the right thing to do and help me to do it! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! Teach me the right thing to do and help me to do it! Its different from doing all things, I want to do the right thing! Teach me to do it and help me to do it! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you lift up your voice to Him and say Father, Long before I leave this world let me become a blessing to nations! Let’s Talk to the Almighty God! Let me be a blessing to nations! Let me become a blessing to nations! A mighty blessing to nation! Lord, before I leave this world let me become a mighty blessing to nations! ….. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Brethren, only the blessed can be a blessing. I want you to pray the next prayer with all your heart and say Father, from tonight, every garment of suffering, of sickness, of disease, of failure, of sorrow, remove from my life! Talk to the Almighty God!  If I’m to be a blessing I have to be blessed Lord! Please Lord remove every garment of suffering from my life! …… Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The Word of God, both me and the children God has given me are for signs and wonders. Cry to the Almighty God! and say Father, both me and my children let us be for signs and wonders. Almighty God! Let us be for signs and wonders; let us be for healings, for deliverance, for miracles, for victory. Let us become instruments of signs and wonders throughout the whole world! Not just in Nigeria performing miracles both me and my children let us be for signs and wonders….  In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The Word of God says, if my people that are called by my Name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and forsake their evil ways, I will hear from heaven and I will heal their land. Brethren, whatever problems we have in Nigeria it is probably because we are not praying enough. Let us pray to God and say,Father ! Have mercy on Nigeria. Let’s call on Him, let’s call on Him! Father, have mercy! Have mercy on Nigeria!… In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now talk to God concerning your own individual requests. Whatever you want from Him call on Him now – call on the Almighty ……. Thank You Lord! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now I want you to join your hands with your neighbour. The Bible says you are to love your neighbour as yourself, cry to God for the fellow you are holding. SayFather, don’t let this Your child go empty-handed! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! Almighty God! don’t let this Your child go empty-handed….. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And now before I pray for you it is your turn to pray for me. So just wish me whatever you wish yourself ……… In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Let’s go before the Almighty God! on our knees. Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord ….. Eternal Rock of Ages we want to bless Your Name. King of Kings! Lord of Lords! The I AM that I AM! the Ancient of Days!, the Unchangeable Lord! – You are wonderful, You are good, You are kind, You are glorious, You are mighty, You are holy! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Father, there is no one like You. You are greater than the greatest. You are stronger than the strongest. You are richer than the richest. You are older than the oldest. You are wiser than the wisest! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name Father, make this night special. (Amen!) In all our lives let it be special. Let there be salvation, let there be healings, let here be deliverance, let there be joy, let there be victory, let there be shouts of triumph. At the end  of it all take all the glory. Give us the blessings. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen. Somebody shout Alleluia!

Now all may be seated except the children of June. All the children of June can stand. Very special children, the children of June. Father, in the mighty Name of Jesus, we are praying for Your children who are born in the month of June. Father, let it be well with them. (Amen!) Let their joy be full. (Amen!) Let them receive special visitation today. Wherever their blessings may be bring them rapidly today. (Amen!) As they are beginning a new milestone in their lives give them new joy (Amen!) new anointing (Amen!) , new power (Amen!) , new vision (Amen!), new victory (Amen!), new progress (Amen!), abundant promotions and let them serve You for the  rest of their lives (Amen!) In Jesus mighty Name we pray! Children of June let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

God bless you! You may be seated!

For every one of you here tonight this month will be the beginning of months. (Amen!) This month shall be the beginning of months. Everything you have been chasing before, you will catch (Amen!) and if the enemy had been pursuing you you will leave the enemy far behind. (Amen!) I didn’t hear your Amen to that. The only thing that will pursue you and overtake you is the blessing of the Almighty God!. (Amen!) So shall it be (Amen!)

1 Samuel 13:14 Samuel was speaking to Saul and he said to Saul:

But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the Lord hath commanded him to be captain over his people…..

God has commanded somebody to be captain. There is somebody here tonight that God is commanding to be great. (Amen!) The God that we serve had always been a commander. He had been a commander from the beginning and He said in Isaiah 43:13 He said when I say I want to do something who can reverse it? There is a song we normally sing. When Jesus has said ‘Yes’ who can say ‘No’? God will say yes to your answers today (Amen!)

Now this Commander, this great Commander has said in Rev. 1:5-6: He said the Lord Himself has decided that you are going to be priests and kings which means you have no choice which means you are going to be great. (Amen!) I didn’t hear your  ‘Amen’ to that. (Amen!)

In 1 Pet.2:9 the Bible says you are chosen to be royalty. You are a royal priesthood. The One who can command and it will be done. The One who spake and it is done says I am commanding blessing on somebody tonight. I don’t know who that fellow is but somebody is going to be great tonight. (Amen!)  When God commands, He says this is what must be, you may take a look at yourself or take a look at your situation and say this is ridiculous, how can I be great? You may even laugh at Him, like inGenesis 18:9-14, God said to Sarah, you are going to have a son in 9 months. Sarah laughed. How can this be? A 90 year old woman have a child. God said you could laugh as much as you like. I have commanded – so shall it be. There is somebody here tonight it doesn’t matter what you think, you are going to be great. You better say ‘Amen!’ You better say the ‘Amen’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

He said to Joshua, I know you are a messenger now but from this moment I make you President. Joshua said You must be talking to the wrong fellow. God said, I have already spoken and it’s already done. For you tonight if only you will receive it, greatness is yours. (Amen!) I say greatness is yours. (Amen!)

All God has to do is command. Psalm 33:11 The Bible says the counsel of the Lord shall stand. Once it is decided and He commanded that settles it. It is only if He hasn’t spoken yet and He has brought us together tonight to make this night a night we will remember for the rest of our lives. This is a night when He has commanded that we will be great. (Amen!)

Some years ago a gentleman walked into my office. He said, I have no money. I don’t know people, I have only very few friends but some of these my friends are saying I should contest for governorship of my state. There is no hope of success. So Daddy what is your advice. I said, Let us pray and we prayed and the Spirit of God said to me, Shake hands with the new Governor. So I said, Sir, let me be the first one to shake hands with your excellency. He looked at me as if something is wrong with me but 3 months later what God said came to pass. There is somebody here tonight, it is coming forth to you, you will be great (Amen!) (Amen!) I say you are being commanded to be great. (Amen!)

God is the Great Commander. He had always been the Great Commander. He said in Genesis 1 :1-3 when He surveyed the whole world and it was dark and void, He said let there be light. was there any argument about it? The moment He commanded, let there be light, there was light! And may I start by commanding tonight: In your life there will be light! (Amen!) In your home there will be light! (Amen!) In your churches there will be light! (Amen!).

Now the power of a command is determined by the power and the authority of the Commander. In other words, whether a command is going to be of any value will be determined by is the Commander empowered to give the command. For example if my driver stands up here and he says, ‘Brothers and sisters I want all workers to wait. When everybody has gone home I want all workers to stay behind.’ You will all ask yourself who is this one talking? Who gave him the authority to ask workers to wait? As soon as the programme is over you’ll all be on your way home. But if I stand here and I say. All workers are to wait till 5 pm tomorrow evening, whatever programme you had before will have to be altered because the order has come from someone who has the authority to give the command. So by the authority vested in me I command darkness to go out of your life (Amen!). I command sickness to leave you alone. (Amen!) I command failure to become a stranger to you. (Amen!) If you believe it will be so let me hear your ‘Amen’ (Amen!)

Now a real commander does not need to really shout or repeat himself. If he’s a true commander, once he’s spoken it’s already done. I don’t have to say it 3 times to my driver, ‘We are going to Lagos o. I hope you heard, we are going to Lagos o. Please o I hope you hear me – we are going to Lagos now?’ Once I say we are going to Lagos all I need to do is say exactly where in Lagos and that settles the matter. I’m commanding today in the mighty name of Jesus, you will reach your goal. (Amen!) I say you will reach your goal. (Amen!)

Now the Great Commander in Psalm 62:11 the Bible says

God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.

Every business that had been failing, I command, begin to bring forth…(Amen!) This Great Commander said to the sea this is how you will go and no further according to Job 38:8-11 and up till today you will find that the sea has not exceeded the limit. The wave may rise  high and look as if it is about to swallow up the land but suddenly is remembers the command of the Great Commander but it will fall back and roll back to where it was coming from. Every wave trying to swallow you up will obey the voice of the commander. He commanded the sun to rule by day and the sun had been ruling by day up till today and that is why I am commanding tonight, all of you who are here tonight, your sun is not going to set at midday. (Amen!)

Because He is the Great Commander everything and everyone must obey Him that is why the Bible says in Philippians 2:10 it said at the name of Jesus every knee must bow – every knee. When He commands everything, everyone must obey Him which is why I am saying once again to those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb – your womb must obey Him. God said, Be fruitful, be fruitful, be fruitful. So if you are one of such people, touch your womb right now and say, Be fruitful, obey God, be fruitful! It is God who commanded and His command must be obeyed. It doesn’t matter what the doctors have said, what the Great Commander is said is what will come to pass.

We were having a Convention of our church in America some years ago and the Word of God came to me saying, there is a lady full of sorrow because doctors have just told her that she can never, never have a child. And the Lord said, tell her by next year’s Convention she will come with a set of twins. And I said it and the fellow there jumped and shouted. The following year, the Commander commanded, she came carrying 2 babies, one on the right, one on the left! I say one more time, every barren here tonight, 9 months from now your miracle will arrive. (Amen!)

Because everything and every one must obey him that is why your eyes must obey Him. In Mark 10:46-52 All He said to Bartimaeus was , ‘See.’ Suddenly the eyes began to do what they were supposed to do. I have good news for those of you that have bad eyesight, in the mighty name of Jesus receive your sight. (Amen!) But when we say your eyes must obey Him we are not talking about physical sight alone we are also talking about spiritual sight. Now some of us have not seen angels before. You will have testimonies before next month. And then there is something called vision – talking about seeing into the future, the one that the Bible says, where there is no vision the people perish. That vision that is going to take you to great heights you will begin to see from today.

I remember the story of a woman whose mother was blind and they were very poor and the landlord came and said, By 12 noon on such-and-such a date if you don’t pay all you owe me, I’m throwing both mother and daughter into the street. So the daughter began to cry to God. She spent the whole night praying and the mother was hearing the cry of the daughter and her own cry is, even of they are going to throw us out O Lord, open my eyes so that at least I will see where I’m going. that was the only prayer she was praying that her sight be restored. And the daughter prayed into the early hours of the morning and then fell asleep. When she woke up she was smelling breakfast. Who is preparing breakfast. She got up, went to the kitchen and it was her mother. the Lord had opened the eyes of the old woman. I’m prophesying to somebody here today: By the time the sun rises your vision will be perfect. everything must obey him the Commander .

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight who wants to do mighty things for God. The Lord asked me to tell you, I will strengthen your hand. (Amen!)

In Matthew 8:1-3, a leper came to Jesus and said , I know You are able to make me clean – if you are willing. Jesus said, I am willing! The moment He said , Be clean! Leprosy disappeared because sickness and disease must obey Him. Everyone here today, considered incurable, in the mighty name of Jesus you shall be healed. (Amen!)I’m sure some of you remember the story of the boy who was given  2 weeks to live by the best doctor in London. He told the Father who happened to be an Ambassador, Sir if you  want your son to see your homeland again, take him home now. He has 2 weeks at most to live. That was 1983. And they brought the boy to the Camp here. 21 years later, he’s still living, he’s healthy… Every incurable disease in your body I command today – disappear! (Amen!) You see your body has to obey the Commander – your bones, your flesh, your blood, from the top of your head to the sole of your feet – it must obey Him. In John 5:2-9 the Bible talks of somebody who’d been  sick for 38 years. When the Commander-in-Chief got to him, He did not pray for him. He did not even lay hands on him. He simply said, ‘Rise, take your bed and go home!’ He just issued a command and he didn’t repeat himself. There was no shouting there was no shaking, He just said, ‘Arise take up your bed, go!’ And the man got up as if it’s the most natural thing to do. He’d been sick for 38 years but when the command goes to the body, the body remembered who made him. Your body will remember its creator today. (Amen!)

One of the testimonies that had always given me joy when I remember is the story of the man when we were still in the wooden section up there, the altar you know is smaller than this and miracles were happening around the altar and everybody wanted to see what was going on. He was a short man so somebody taller has come inside.. so he said, Oh God, how I wish I were taller! Then the Lord spoke to me and said, somebody has just said,  I wish I were taller….  your body will obey the Almighty God!!

I’m still talking about the Commander because I said the power of the command is determined by the power of the Commander. We are talking about the God we serve. He’s not just a Commander. He is the Commander-in-Chief According to Psalm 24:7-10 He is called the Lord of Hosts, the Commander of Commanders! He is the One who has the ultimate authority and that is why demons must let you go. You see in Mark 5:1-13, you know the story of the mad man of Gedara, about 2000 demons were in him. They decided his case and concluded it, They decided that this man will never, never again, leave the congregation of the dead! Until one day he met the Commander-in-Chief. The Commander-in-Chief said only one word – ‘Go!’ to the demons and they all disappeared and the man that the world thought can never become anything became an evangelist. You may think your situation is hopeless but because you are here tonight the Commander-in-Chief is going to command His grace into your life!

When He commands demons obey. When He commands even birds obey. You know the story in 1 Kings 17:2-6 that’s when He sent birds to go and feed His servant. He can use birds to bring your miracle to you. They must obey Him.

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here, the tempo of your progress is slowing down. He asked me to tell you, I will accelerate it. (Amen!)

I was saying that even birds obey Him. I don’t know if I’ve told you the story  before. When we first came to this camp ground. One year we were getting ready for the Convention and these tiny birds came. They came by the hundreds of thousands. They took over every tree, every palm tree at the Camp Ground. When they get hold of a tree, within 3 days they’ve destroyed every leaf on that tree. Among the  Bible students then there was one man who had a Dane gun. He came and fired right into their midst. Dozens died but it was as if that was an invitation to the rest wherever they are  … God what am I going to do, your children are coming for Convention.. so I cried to God for help and I traveled for 2 days. By the time I returned I saw eagles. I don’t know where they came from. They came by the hundreds! And they get to work on these little birds. Within three days there was not a single little bird left! The eagles finished them all. Every little bird from demons from all forces of darkness, causing you one problem or the other, the eagle of the Almighty God! will deal with them tonight. (Amen!)

Winds obey Him. He opened the Red Sea which is why your ways will be opened today, whether the enemy likes it or not. All the Commander needs to do is command. Suddenly favour will begin to come your way. (Amen!) Early last year I met a man somewhere in this country and he asked, Pray for me, my business is not going well. I need a major breakthrough. So we prayed a simple prayer and I happened to see the man this year. Within a year he has built an estate. He insisted that I must come and see the estate. When we got to the estate and he saw my surprise. I asked him finally, how many houses are here? Only 1,000! I command today – a major breakthrough for all of you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

I believe very well, I believe very firmly that by this time next year it is your own testimony that will be shared. Because He is the Commander-in-Chief. That is why there is somebody here tonight who will never be hungry tonight. Why? Because according to 1 Kings 17:8-16 even flour, ordinary flour for making bread obeys Him.Oil obeys Him so if you will just receive it tonight is the end of hunger in your life. (Amen!)

Fish obey Him. If you don’t believe me ask Jonah. He spent 3 days in the belly of a fish because the Commander-in-Chief commanded the fish – swallow him but don’t digest him! And when the time came for him to be delivered, the Commander-in-Chief told the fish, the man inside you cannot swim so don’t vomit him in the sea take hi to the beach first. You will reach your goal in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, everything is at a standstill. He said to tell you. I will give you a push forward (Amen!)

Because He’s the Commander-in-Chief …. all kinds of  healings are going on…. somebody had severe pain at the elbow. The pain is gone. Someone’s leg – been suffering weakness at the knees recently, check your knees now they’re very strong now. All kinds of healings going on now.

Angels obey Him……. that’s why the lions of this world cannot harm you. Because they threw Daniel into the lions den in Daniel 6 but God sent an angel tog o and shut the mouth of lions so all those lions that have been planning to swallow you up they will have to look for other meat because the angels of the Lord will shut their mouth in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). Because according to Hebrews 1:13-14 the angels of the Lord are already commanded to serve you. They are to go wherever you go and they are to carry you in their hands according to Psalm 91:10-12 He has given a command to his angels  concerning you to carry you in their hands so you will never dash your foot against a stone. It may sound childish to you but I have always told my people, if I’m walking along the road and accidentally I strike my foot against a stone …..Glory be to God! I think they are rejoicing with someone there too, there’s a woman spinning round there. I now tonight is a special night. Do I hear someone  shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)…….. If I accidentally strike my foot against a stone. I stand still I say Lord what is going on? where are the angels? They are supposed to carry me  in their hands so I don’t strike my foot against a stone…. some of you say, Ah no, no, no you are taking it literally! That’s how I take it! Every where I go, angels are to go with me. I command today, everywhere you go the angels of the Lord will follow you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

I attended a programme somewhere in Ibadan last month and it was time for me to go and the fellow who invited me escorted me to the car and as I entered the car he asked, Where are your escorts? where are your bodyguards. I laughed! I said, They are here. He said, Where are they? I said, God will have to open your eyes to see them! They are not human they are angels. From today wherever you go the angels of the Lord will go with you. (Amen!)

So angels obey Him. Now there are commanders and commanders. There are commanders and there is the Commander so when the earthly commanders issue their commands you listen first to what the Commander-in-Chief has to say. In Daniel 3:19-23 for example……

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here who has been bleeding for weeks. The Lord asks you to check the bleeding has stopped.

In Daniel 3 Nebuchadnezzar said, Heat the furnace 3 times hotter and then throw these people inside because he was a commander. And the Commander-in-Chief spoke and said, Fire, part for my children and the Bible said in Psalm 29:7, It said the voice of the Lord creates a path in the midst of fire. Every one of you passing through fire now – whatever the nature of the fire, the fire will not burn you. (Amen!)

I was in the North last week and I heard a testimony of the crisis that happened in Kano. These people were going from family to family and they know you are Christian, they ask you to surrender one of your children or you all die. They collect the child and you never see the child again. So they came to this family and they collected a child. And you could imagine what that could be for a father to hand over one of his children knowing that that child is going to be killed. The wife was saying to the husband, Darling, darling you are giving out… The husband said , What can I do? They will either kill all of us or they kill one… Then after they left the husband said, If the God who we serve in the Redeemed is truly alive, they will bring back my child. An hour later the child returned. Everything that the enemy has stolen from you, I command today, it will be fully restored. (Amen!) You better say that ‘Amen!’ loud and clear! (Amen!)

In Acts 12:4-6 a Commander said, put these people into prison. Tie him up properly, Lock the door of the prison very well. That’s what they said concerning Peter. The Bible said they did not just tie him they tied him to two soldiers and then verses 7-11, the Commander-in-Chief said to one of the angels, Go now. Tell the chains to drop off. Tell the doors to open. Tell the guards to sleep. And the angel came and delivered the message, just as I’m delivering to you today. I’m commanding in the name of Jesus, every chain binding you will drop off tonight (Amen!) every door that had been shut against you will open tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And all the guards that are standing in your way, they will fall asleep. (Amen!)

I remember a story when I was a lecturer at the University of Lagos and some of these boys decided to burn down the bookshop and some of the boys that were Christians, that we used to do Bible study together said, Hey, what shall we do? Our Pastor has gone home. What shall we do? And then one of the others said, He said if there is any problem we are to call on Jesus, he didn’t say we are to call on him. These boys are planning to burn the bookshop. Let’s call on Jesus. So they gathered and they called a prayer meeting. In the meantime these people who wanted to burn the bookshop said we will wait till midnight and then they were drinking, they were smoking and they were waiting till midnight. Already they had kegs of petrol that they were going to use. When they woke up it was daylight and then they began to quarrel – the followers were saying to their leaders, What kind of leaders are you you fell asleep on duty! And he was saying what kind of followers are you that you cannot shake me and wake me up? With their own hands they poured away the petrol they bought. All those who are plotting against you they will fall asleep, Amen (Amen!)

……But probably one of the greatest stories, one of the greatest testimonies that I can share with you to tell you about the power of the Commander the One who is going to command you to be great…..

…all those who are planning your destruction they will fall asleep. (Amen!) By the time they wake up you will already be great. (Amen!) If you believe that let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

O Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone who has been feeling dizzy for the past few days  but the Lord said I should tell you don’t worry that’s over now.

Whatever the Commander commands you to be that is what you will become. (Amen!) You know He said to Joseph, you will be a ruler. That’s what He said to Joseph. His brothers didn’t like it, they decided to kill him. They changed their minds, Let us sell him into slavery. He became a slave but because God said You will be a ruler, even in slavery he became Managing Director. They lied against him. They threw him in prison. when he got to prison he became Managing Director! And then of course he landed in Egypt and became the Managing Director of Egypt. Let me tell you one thing. Whether the devil likes it or not you are going to rule in the midst of your enemies! (Amen!)

So when God said, I have commanded David to be captain, it is interesting to not therefore in 1 Samuel 22:1-2 that in the Cave of Adullam, all vagabonds, all people who were debtors, everybody who had problems, they gathered together unto David. And the Bible said he became a captain over them. God said he will be y captain and wherever he found himself he was captain. I am looking at some captains of God here tonight. From now on wherever you go you will be captains. (Amen!)

O Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, they’ve told you to your face that We will finish you. The Lord asked me to tell you – they won’t. In fact He asked me to tell you, I will raise you above them all (Amen!)

So they Commander-in-Chief had commanded that you will be great. The question now is how great are you going to be? You have no choice you are going to be great! But the question now is, how great? I didn’t hear your answer to that… exceedingly great? You better make it loud and clear! You see the Bible says in Psalm 118:22-23, it said the stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner, it said this is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes. People may say you are a reject and there is no way you can become anything… they are in for a surprise! By the time God has finished with you they will all admit this is the Lord’s doing and it’s marvelous in our eyes!

One of my sons, a top military officer had a serious motor accident, very serious motor accident – head smashed, mouth jarred, leg… very serious. Doctors took a look at him – Ah this one, he can never walk again, he can never talk again, ah! No hope! They even said it. I happened to be in the town and they told me so I went to see him in the hospital and I prayed a simple prayer. I commanded life into his body just as I am commanding life into your body and then I left. Few minutes after I left he called the wife. He called the wife and said, Bring me my shaving stick! You are thinking of shaving when… I’m already feeling better, bring me my shaving stick! Don’t let me tell you his testimony, he will come and share it  during the Convention. So let me just say this one. But one of the people who said, Ah this one is finished, when they saw him back in his office on his seat, he said surely you have a Father. There is somebody here today who surely has a Father. (Amen!) The Almighty Father, King of Kings! Lord of Lords!, the Great Commander-in-Chief He has commanded you will be great.

God decides how great you will be because promotion comes from Him. But you have a role to play.

Thank You Father! The Lord said somebody had a dream recently and in the dream they stole your child, the Lord asked me to tell you, Don’t worry anymore, everything that the enemy has stolen will be fully restored. (Amen!)

You have a role to play because to lead is to serve. Luke 22:24-26 Jesus Christ said the One who is going to be the chiefest among you must be the servant of all. So you want to be great? That is a settled matter but how great? The greatest must be the servant of all because the strong is to help the weak. Romans 15:1-3 He who is strong must bear the infirmities of those w ho are weak! The reason the engine of the trailer is big is because it has a lot of load to pull. The greater you want to be the bigger the load you must be willing to carry for Jesus. God empowers people to serve, not for status. Acts 1:8 you will receive power when the Holy Ghost come upon you and then you will be witnesses unto me. He empowers for service, not for status. He wants to make you great to serve not just to go about bearing titles. You want to be great you must be ready to serve.

I’ve told you before I was talking to God and I said Daddy I want double the portion of the anointing of Elijah, double the portion of the anointing of Elisha, double the portion of the anointing of Peter, double the portion of the anointing of Paul plus double the anointing of the Lord Jesus Christ when He was here on earth. Add everything together and double it again!  So that’s what I want. he said, So you are asking for trouble. They won’t let you sleep. I said, I don’t mind. That’s a good problem!

How many of you want to be vessels unto honour? You want to be able to lay hands on the sick and get them healed, you want to be able to cast out demons? You are not answering me now! That’s going to happen tonight. (Amen!) And then the people in your street  will soon know, the people in your village, they will soon know and they won’t let you sleep anymore. When their child is sick they will come and knock at your door! They will call you Baba Adura! Baba Adura! They will come and knock at your door. Is that all right by you? I can’t hear you! (Amen!)

So you want to be great. You want to be the richest? I didn’t hear you now! (Amen!) If you become the richest man in the world, you can’t eat more than you are eating already. You can’t wear 2 clothes at the same time so for who will the money be? To serve. When the money begins to come you must be willing to buy buses to bring people to  the Holy Ghost Service. You must be willing to build churches for people to worship, You must be willing to serve. Are you ready to serve? Are you ready to serve? To lead is to serve.

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here today, I will solve your problem my own way. (Amen!) Not the way you expect but I will solve your problems my own way. (Amen!) Thank You Father! I receive that one. You just have to do it Your own way Lord. Just get all the problems solved. Just do it Your way. Thank You Father!

Now that’s number one – if you want to be great you  must be ready to serve.

Number 2. To lead is to defend. A captain must be ready to defend his team. Which means to lead is to be ready to fight. 1 Samuel 17:32-37 David said, Let no man fail because of this Goliath I will go and fight him. That is the Captain speaking. The rest of you don’t worry, I will fight! Are you ready to fight? Are you ready to fight forces of darkness that are trying to destroy your people? Don’t worry, the Almighty God! will supply the armour. (Amen!)

To lead is to represent. You must be willing to represent your people. Goliath said, Listen tome Israel, I am the champions of the Philistines send me your own representative. The one that God said will be my Captain said, I will go, I will represent my people. So if you want to be great, you must be ready to represent your people before God. To be a captain mans you are going to be an intercessor. You want to be great?  Not only the people around will not let you sleep. You yourself will not even want to sleep because you need to pray!

Years ago when my Father in the Lord was alive he came to spend some time with me. when we were going to bed after the night pray I saw him going down on his knees. When I got up in the middle of the might to go and ease myself because my house was on the outskirts of the town and the toilet was outside, I still saw him on his knees. When we woke up in the morning for morning devotion, he was still on his knees. So I said, What’s wrong with this man? What’s the problem? What does he want from God that he has been asking since last night and he hasn’t got it yet? If you ask me the same question now, I know the answer. You say, Pastor Adeboye, why don’t you sleep at night? I know the answer. Is it clothes you  are asking for, is it food? House? Cars? No! Then why are you not sleeping? I’m sure some of you know the answer. Because today we are great but we haven’t started – we are going to be much, much greater.

As I was telling the Pastors in their minister’s conference recently, the baby pig asked the mother pig, Why are you always saying hon,hon, hon…? The mother pig said when you are as old as I am you will know. How many of you want to be greater than I am? So it will you be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And you will need to serve and you will to defend and you will need to represent.

The one who will command must be commandable. The one who will command must be under the authority of the Commander-in-Chief.

Thank You Father! The Lord says I should just announce it, that the people concerned will understand. He said, I will choke the chokers. (Amen!)

And the one who would be great, the one who will command must be under the Commander-in-Chief. In Luke 7:1-10 a centurion came to Jesus Christ and said, I am also a man under authority and when I say to one soldier come, he comes and when I say to another go, he goes because I myself am under Caesar. If Caesar asks me to come, I will come; if he asks me to go I will go! Brethren you are going to be great. (Amen!) Let me warn you. The greater you are the more complete must be your obedience to the Commander-in-Chief. The greater you are, the more closely you must listen to the command of your Commander-in-Chief. The Almighty God! said to Moses in Exodus 17:1-6, He said, strike the rock and it will bring forth water. He struck the rock and it brought forth water. In Numbers 20:7-12 God said to Moses, speak to the rock – not strike this time but speak. Instead of speaking he struck and as a result he didn’t get to the Promised Land. The greater you are the more closely you must listen to the commands of the Commander-in-Chief.

Let me share with you a story or two because I know you are going to be great. There is nothing anybody can do about that! So you better know in advance. I was sitting down in my office. A brother came. As we were talking, he said, I’m going to travel, going to America to attend a Christian conference. Ah good! God will go with you etc, etc Suddenly he said to me – or will you like to go? Ah! Of course! I mean, if it is a Christian conference I would love to go! But I don’t have the money so I’m not going. He said, That’s no problem. I will like to buy you first class ticket. I will pay for your accommodation. I will even give you pocket money to spend. Ah! I was happy! What a great day! Thank you sir! Thank you sir! And then he left. After he left my Commander-in-Chief said, You are not going anywhere! Yes Lord. But why? I didn’t beg him for it. He’s the one who offered and it is something that is going to be beneficial to the Church? But the Commander-in-Chief had spoken. So I picked my phone and I phoned the man as he was getting to the office: Thank you for the offer but my Commander-in-Chief says I’m not going anywhere. So I didn’t go. He went. Came back. Few days after he came back he was arrested. That he had been defrauding and they were now tracing how he spent the money and they would have seen there how he bought a ticket for the GO. The gift that will get you into trouble God will never allow you to receive it! (Amen!)

You want to be great you must learn obedience. Let me tell you another one or two stories because I know this night is going to change your life permanently. (Amen!) Your life is already changing anyway. (Amen!) We were in the old auditorium. Suddenly the Lord spoke to me and said – there are some people in the crowd with severe back pain, that they couldn’t even bend to touch their toes. He said, Call them out. I want to heal them. So I called them out. And I thought that God will now say, go and lay hands on them and pray for them. But no, He said, Dance round them. Dance? round sick people? Why will I say I am dancing? I’m dancing because your back is aching? But you have to list en to Him and do what He says. So I went. Danced round them. The band was playing and I was dancing and I looked like a silly man dancing, I was the only one dancing. After I’ve danced for some time, He said, That’s all right. Tell all of them to touch their toes and they were healed every one. Now it is  not my dancing that healed them. God just wanted to find out… will you obey me?

You want another one? It happened at the altar over there. Some of you will remember God said, I should wear 7 agbadas together. How many of you remember that one? Some of you did. And you can imagine how uncomfortable it could be. He said  I should wear them, I wore them. He said, I should dance for a while, I danced and then He said I should spread the garments on the altar and then all those who needed a miracle should just come, touch the garments  and say, ‘I receive.’ Tell them they are to touch not to hold! And one man said, if touching is going to give me a miracle, holding will give me much more and he came and grabbed the thing. Because of the surface the agbada looked like ordinary agbada but they were no longer ordinary because they had been worn in obedience. he grabbed the garments and the power of God hit him. He began to shake violently. Unfortunately for him I had already gone to my office. He grabbed the thing at 8 am. He was still shaking by 5 pm. Somebody came and said,  ‘Sir, somebody is about to die you better come.’ He had been shaking so violently from morning to evening he was almost dead. I had to come and ask God for mercy for him before he became normal again.

You want to be great you must learn obedience. Total obedience. When your Commander-in-Chief says wins souls. Your answer must be, ‘Yes Lord.’ When your Commander-in-Chief says Follow up the converts, the answer must be what? ‘Yes Lord!’ When your Commander-in-Chief says give your answer must be what? I can’t hear you. When your Commander-in-Chief says pay your tithes, what must be your answer? You will soon discover, after tonight that you will find yourself, maybe in the bus or in the taxi or in your place of work and you will hear a voice quietly within you saying, Lay hands on him and pray for him. What must be your answer? (Yes, Lord!)

There is only one person called the Most High – you must never forget that. Only one person called the Almighty. When your greatness comes remember that He said, take my yoke upon you. You must know who is the Commander-in-Chief. You must know who is the One calling the shots. He is the Almighty. He is the Most High.

So if there is any one here tonight who is yet to surrender his or her life to Jesus before we go to the crucial part of tonight’s programme., I want to give you an opportunity to surrender your life to Him. You must come to Him. You must surrender your life to Him.

Come quickly 1, 2,3, 4, 5, 6, 7 now. I know some of you are coming from a long distance but you have to hurry now. This is your day of salvation. Everything is going to change. You are going to become a brand new creation today. Hurry up quickly! Hurry up quickly! The gates of mercy are open now. Com eon! Come on quickly! 8 now – 8! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! He is the only one who can draw people to Him. Rejoice because the Lord is saving souls, rejoice! rejoice! Come from all over the place. Hurry up! Hurry up! Hurry up! Thank You Jesus! Yes, I can see some of you still coming! Hurry up! Hurry up! 9 now. 9! This is a final count! A final count now. Hurry up!

Those of you already in front begin to talk to Jesus now – ask Him to be merciful unto you, ask Him to save your souls, ask Him to cleanse you in His blood – those of you still coming, Keep coming! Keep coming! Keep coming! Before we finish praying. Continue to pray those of you who are in front. Tell God: Have mercy! I will serve You from now on. Forgive all my sins. Save my soul! And those of you who are still on the way – Hurry up! Hurry up! Hurry up! And  the rest of us let’s stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them that the Lord who saved our souls will save their own souls too. Let’s pray for them brethren. Hurry up! The rest of you who are still on the way, I can still see many of you… Hurry up! Hurry up! Get here before we finish praying.

Those of you who are in front, open your mouths, talk to God! Say, Save my soul! Save my soul O Lord! Save my soul! Forgive all my sins. I will serve you! I will serve you! Those of you who are still coming keep coming, don’t wait – this is your day of salvation. He will save you. Just cry to Him and say, Be merciful to me O Lord! Be merciful to me O Lord! Forgive all my sins and I will serve you. Be my Lord, be my Saviour and I will serve you all the days of my life. Now if you are coming this is your last opportunity because I am about to pray so you really have to move now. Hurry up! I can see some of you still running. I know you are coming from a long distance but get here quickly before we pray. O Lord Save my soul! Almighty God! Have mercy on me Lord, have mercy on me! Cleanse me in Your blood and I will serve You all the days of my life! Have mercy on me O Lord. Have mercy! Have mercy! Have mercy! Those of you who are still in the way make sure you get here before I finish praying because I must pray now. Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Father Almighty, I just want to bless Your name. I want to thank You very, very much for these people You have brought to Yourself this day. remember Your promise O Lord that whosoever will come unto You You will in no wise cast out. these people have come unto You now receive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Save their souls in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Cleanse them in Your blood in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) From today Lord any time they call upon You answer them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And let them serve you for the rest of their lives in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You! my Father In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Praise the Lord! (Alleluia!)

Those of you in front let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). I want to rejoice with you because the heavens are rejoicing now. According to the Word of God Jesus is dancing because of you now and the rest of us are rejoicing with you too. Congratulations! Congratulations! And I want to make you a promise, by the special grace of God, from now on I will be praying for you. That’s why I need your names and your address and your prayer requests. Now the address must be correct because when I ask God to send your miracle it will be sent to the address that you put down. So if you follow this brother, some Pastors are waiting towards the back of the auditorium to collect this information from you and then they will bring you back to come and join us so you can begin to go now…… Let’s put our hands together for them….

Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Those of us who have major testimonies you can please report at the back  of the altar where some Pastors are waiting to listen to your testimonies and then we will select some of them for sharing later on tonight.

We prayed a prayer earlier on which I am not sure many of us fully understood. It is one thing to do everything that you know how to do. It is a different thing to do the right thing. When a student writes an exam, he could write all he knows but unless he writes the right thing he will not pass. What makes a difference between those who succeed in life and those who fail is knowing the right thing. So we are going to pray that prayer one more time. You will stand on your feet and say, Father, teach me the right thing to do and help me to do it. Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God!: Teach me the right thing to do and help e to do it. I don’t want to be struggling for nothing. Teach me the right thing to do and help me to do it,,…

Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia’ (Alleluia!)

How many of you know something is about to happen to you? In the next few minutes something will happen to you that will surprise even you. If you believe that say ‘Amen!’ loud and clear. I will tell you a story and we share for few minutes and then I will do what God wants us to do tonight.

Several years ago we were having a workers meeting at the Headquarters. We had a Bible question. Now at the workers meeting the Pastors sit in one section, the workers sit in another section. And the only fellow who could answer my question correctly happened to be a worker. It was a deep question and he gave the answer correctly. So I looked at him. I said, Well done Pastor so-so-so. A few seconds, everybody looked surprised because he’s a worker but then after some time they began to clap and this man didn’t waste time. He picked up his Bible and crossed over to the side of Pastors because the General Overseer had called him Pastor. Some of you will get it soon. Tonight you are going to leave the company of ordinary people and cross over to the company of the special. I’ve always told you that when there is a special occasion – some big man is having an event and it is time for entertainment, he will say the Governors, ministers, will eat at such-and-such a place, the Commissioners, judges will eat in such-and-such a place and they keep going like that, finally they will say And all others will eat on the football field. The ‘all others’ are those we don’t care whether they eat or not, no problem. In the next few minutes you are going to leave the category of ‘all others’ (Amen!) You better say ‘Amen!’ loud and clear.

Now because your greatness is assured you need to know how to live as a great person. Great people when they pray, they don’t beg. They command. They decree. They say ‘come’, ‘go!’. They say, Sickness –go! Demons – go! Blessings – come! They look at any gate blocking their way and they say Gate – lift up your head! Now in Matthew 18:18 the Almighty God!, the Commander-in-Chief said, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven because the Cc had commanded your greatness you must from tonight change your way of prayer. Stop begging. great people are no beggars. Mark 11:23says If you shall believe and doubt not you will say to this mountain. It didn’t  say you will beg the mountain. You will say to this mountain, Mountain be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea and it shall obey you. Beginning from tonight I want to begin to hear a new kind of prayer. I want you to be able to stand up and say, Mountain, I command you in the name of Jesus, move! Some of you will say, but I’ve said that before … at that time you didn’t  know that God had commanded you to be great! Things are different now! Do I hear ‘Amen!’ to that. I told you that the power of the command is determined by the power and authority of the commander. From the moment I said to that worker Pastor, he became a Pastor and even his friends who were just equal with him  a minute before now had to obey him if he said, ‘Move.’ Before you get home today, all those forces that had been threatening you will become afraid of you. (Amen!) Because the Word of God says you will decree a thing and it will be established unto you. When Elisha was going to reverse the curse on Jericho he did not pray, he commanded, he said, “Waters you are healed.” and the Bible said the waters were healed up till today according to the saying of Elisha. When you go home today and you get to your village, command that the waters of your village be healed. They will be healed. When you get home today command that every curse on every member of your family be reversed and they will be reversed.

When some children rose up to mock Elisha, the Bible did not tell us whether they had mocked him before, maybe they’ve so when he was just the friend of the prophet but within a period of about an hour or two things had changed. Now when they were mocking him they didn’t know that the spirit of Elijah now rests on Elisha. So when they mocked him he now turned to them and simply said, “I curse you in the Name of the Lord.” and immediately 2 she-bears came from no where and tore the mockers to pieces. You are going to pray like you’ve never prayed before, you are going to name all those things that are mocking your God and you are going to curse them in the Name of the Lord. It does not take long to change an ordinary man to a special man. All it needs is a command from the one who has authority to show command.

There was a time that I too was just an ordinary Pastor among other ordinary pastors. But then a command came from the one who was then the General Overseer of the church : this man is my successor, he is now the General Overseer. Immediately when I now turn to any of my colleagues and I say sir, you move from Benin to Part Harcourt. You, you move from Ilorin. You go to Benin. You, you move from Ibadan you go to Maiduguri – I don’t have to repeat myself. The moment I say so the next thing is they begin to look for the transport that will take them to their new station. Because of what I’m about to do in the next one minute, when you tell demons to move, you won’t have to repeat yourself. (Amen!) The moment you say it, demons will be looking for ways to get out. I didn’t hear your ‘Amen’. Anyway stand on your feet.

For one minute I want you to thank God that you are here tonight because something is about to happen. You better believe it because something is about to happen.Just thank God that you are here tonight…… Bless His Name that you are here tonight. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The hour has come. I am about to make some pronouncements. If I were you I would receive my own by faith. Father … you just receive. Father, in the mighty name of Jesus (Amen!) I  just want to thank You for the very special love You have for Your people here.

One day there was a problem in the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ : there were 5000 men who were very hungry. The only food available was the lunch of a small boy and yet by the time the story was over, there were 12 baskets full of bread and fish that were left over. Between, definitely not enough to absolutely more than sufficient lies one sentence – Jesus took the bread and the fish in His hands, lifted up His eyes to heaven and said one word, Father I thank You. There is someone here today – between now and tomorrow your austerity is going to be changed to prosperity provided if for the next few minutes you are going to – like nobody else – lift your eyes to the Almighty God and just thank Him, thank Him:

1 Chronicles 29:1-4 When you have found it say, Amen If you haven’t found it say, Wait for me: 1 Chronicles 29… Somehow I know that the joy of somebody will overflow this month, that all your tears will be wiped away. (Amen!) 1 Chronicles 29:1-4

Furthermore David the king said unto all the congregation, Solomon my son, whom alone God hath chosen, is yet young and tender, and the work is great: for the palace is not for man, but for the Lord God.  Now I have prepared with all my might for the house of my God the gold for things to be made of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and the brass for things of brass, the iron for things of iron, and wood for things of wood; onyx stones, and stones to be set, glistering stones, and of divers colours, and all manner of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance.  Moreover, because I have set my affection to the house of my God, I have of mine own proper good, of gold and silver, which I have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house,  Even three thousand talents of gold, of the gold of Ophir, and seven thousand talents of refined silver, to overlay the walls of the houses withal:

Is there a miracle happening behind my back? I can hear shouts coming from behind the altar. Is there a miracle happening behind our back or do they need the attention of the engineers?

David was commanded to be great and he became great. He obeys he commandment of God. God said, Be great! God said Be great! And he said, Amen! Last month God said to somebody here, Be great! (Amen!) And somebody answered (Amen!) Today  God is saying again to somebody, Be great! And what is the answer to that one?

And here we discovered that one thing that followed the greatness of David is wealth that is difficult for us to imagine. He spoke to God. He said, God I want to build a house for You. God said, No, You are a man of war. You have killed people so I can’t allow you to build my house. But your son will build my house. David said, Fine, If I can’t build it I can provide for the building. And he gathered money, gold, silver to such an extent that it is frightening! And when he had gathered all that was necessary to build the temple of God he said, I want to set aside a certain amount for the maintenance. Bible scholars calculated the amount of money he set aside for the maintenance of the building and it was over 4 billion dollars.

Somebody who can say I deposit 4 billion dollars for the maintenance of the House of God cannot be a poor man. Do you agree with that. Therefore it follows automatically that any greatness that comes from God will be accompanied by tremendous prosperity. That’s why I have confidence that there is somebody here tonight who will soon be lending to nations.(Amen!) I’m not sure you heard what I said. I said there is somebody here tonight who will soon be lending to nations! (Amen!)

I don’t preach on prosperity often because some preachers have preached on it as if it is the only counsel of God. But prosperity is only one of the whole counsel of God and I believe that the Almighty God wants me to preach the whole counsel of God. That’s why once a year I talk about prosperity. That’s why tonight our topic is – anointed to flourish. There are five categories of people: the poor, the comfortable, the rich, the wealthy and the flourishing. Which one do you want to be? You want to be one of the poor? Now I’m going to take the 5 one by one tonight. This may be one of the greatest messages you ever heard in your lie so I’m not going to be in a hurry. I will want to take it in detail. If you fully understand what I’m going to tell you tonight I’m sure by this time next year you will be smiling.

There is no greatness in poverty. Proverbs 22:7 says that the poor will always be a servant. It said the borrower will be the servant of the lender. In other words the poor will always be the tail not the head. And I am praying for you that even your children after you will be head and not tail. (Amen!) I say head, head! You will never again be tail in your life. Poverty is a curse pronounced by God on those who are disobedient. When you get home read Deuteronomy 28. Read it from verse 15 to 28. You will discover poverty is one of the major curses that God pronounced on the disobedient and I rebuke every curse of poverty in your life tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Let’s take the 5 categories one by one. The poor. Who are the poor? The poor are those who never have enough. We have examples in the Bible. In 1 Kings 17:8-12 the Bible talked about a widow, the widow of Zarapheth. She was reduced to one meal. One meal for  herself and her son. And one meal for the rest of her life – nothing else, anywhere. That is poverty. 2 Kings 4:1 talks about a widow also heavily in debt to such an extent that the creditors wanted to sell her son to pay the debt.

I don’t know how God will do it but all  of you who are owing in the mighty name of Jesus! within the next 3 months all your debts will be wiped off. Don’t tell me that it is a comfortable thing to be a debtor. Poverty is a curse. But there are poverty of kinds. There is poverty financial and then there is poverty in the form of sickness. Anybody who is sickly, all is not well with him so that when you are sick, it doesn’t matter how much money you have, you are poor. The woman with the issue of blood was rich once but when the sickness came it claimed everything she had. All of you who are sick physically God will touch you today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

In John 5:1-7 he told the Lord Jesus, I have nobody. I have no helper. Sickness had reduced him to a helpless man. In Proverbs 14:20 the Bible says the poor is hated even among his brothers. People hate the poor just because they are poor. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ poverty will leave you alone! (Amen!).

Health and wealth they go together. In fact they say health is wealth. 3 John:2 the Bible says I wish above all things that you prosper and be in health. God wants you to be healthy as well as prosperous. Barrenness is another kind of poverty that is why I am praying for all those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb. This month God will answer you.

Let’s look at some of the forms of poverty because some people glorify poverty. They think you have to be poor to make it to heaven. I used to believe that and I have discovered, you can be the poorest man on earth, if you are not born again and you don’t live holy you are not going to see God you will just suffer for nothing here. I’ve also discovered you can be the richest man on earth, if you are born again and you are living holy there is a room, a mansion reserved for you in heaven. I say I don’t know about you – In this world I will enjoy. And then I will go and enjoy in heaven. Does that surprise you? So shall it be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Now let’s look at some of the sorrows of poverty. Apart from the fact that the poor always serve the rich. God didn’t create you to be a servant of your fellow men. He wants you to be head not tail. Proverbs 10:7 It said all the brothers of the poor hate him and they run away from him. When he’s calling them they’ll be running. Why? because they don’t want him to borrow more money from them. There is somebody here who will never borrow again. (Amen!)

But that is not all. In Proverbs 10:15 the Bible says the destruction of the poor is their poverty. Proverbs 10:15 Poverty is a destroyer and everything that is trying to destroy your destiny, I command that they be destroyed tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) It is true that God said in Deuteronomy 15:11 God said the poor shall not cease from the land but He didn’t say you will be one of them. In fact in the same Deuteronomy 15:4 the Lord said the time will come when there will be no poor man left among His own people. I decree tonight that before the end of this year, there  will be no poor man left among you. (Amen!)

There is nothing glorious about poverty. It brings hunger. It causes one to eat the food of his enemy. It causes you to receive insults from those who should not be insulting you. It causes people who are the age mate of your children to look at you as if you don’t matter. If you are poor up to tonight God will give you a breakthrough. (Amen!)

Thank You Father! God said  there is someone here tonight, it’s a long time you climbed stairs last because of pain in your legs. The Lord asked me to tell you He has healed you now.(Amen!)

There is somebody here, you are suffering from acute weakness, even as your body had been wasting away, you  are getting thinner and weaker. The Lord asked me to tell you, He has healed you and before you leave here tonight you will already be regaining your weight. (Amen!)

But God has a cure for poverty.  1 Samuel 2:8 the Bible says, God can lift up a beggar from the dunghill and raise him up so he begins to sit among princes. God can pick somebody who is hopeless, who is sitting on the dunghill and lift him up till he begins to eat with princes! And I decree to somebody here today, you may find it difficult to pay our house rent but very soon you’ll be drinking tea with the president. (Amen!) How can that be? I know it can be because I’m a living example. For the first 18 years of my life I had no pair of shoes but then God took me up and I remember one day we went to visit the President of Kenya and he was to have a cabinet meeting at 9 a.m. We arrived there at quarter to nine, at 10 am we were still drinking tea and somebody said, Who is this man that is keeping the President busy? Somebody said he’s a pastor. the answer – Not even a bishop? You too, very soon you’ll be drinking tea with the President. (Amen!)  How He does it that is His own business not mine! He can lift up a beggar from the dunghill and set him among princes. I prophesy to somebody here in the mighty name of Jesus! you will reach the top. (Amen!)

And then there is Category 2 – the comfortable. Who are the comfortable? They are the ones who have just enough. 2 meals a day like Elijah at Cherith 1 Kings 17:2-6 twice a day the birds were bringing Elijah bread and meat. And he was drinking water from the brook. He had enough. He was comfortable. There are people like that. Salaries paid, regularly each month. Even if they do some ‘book-me-down’ at the end of the month they clear it. So they are comfortable. They are not hungry. They may not have many clothes but they have something to wear.

What about the dangers of being comfortable? The slightest tragedy reduces them to the poverty level. If they should suddenly decide to reduce the staff where they are working suddenly they discover that there is no money to pay for the book-me-down. The one who has only one car. If that car should knock it’s engine suddenly he becomes one of those queuing up at the bus stop. The one who has just one daughter like Jairus, or one son like the widow of Nain, if anything should happen to his one child, he becomes the same like somebody who has none. I remember the time I was young, as a young child just growing up, whenever I follow my fellows to the river to go and fish or swim, my mother will be crying over my head and said the one with only one flame does not play by the river. And I didn’t understand what is the problem until one day I asked, What is this one flame you are talking about? You are my only son, don’t go and drown, you are my only son. All of you who have one son, one daughter that one will become great in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

The day the brook dried up on Elijah the comfortable stay ended. Those of you with only one car, those of you who are managing one meal in the morning, one meal in the afternoon, today the Almighty God will give you a breakthrough. (Amen!) God has a cure for those who are just comfortable…..

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, all the attempts by your superior to slow you down will be frustrated. (Amen!)

But the story I mentioned when we were praying – the lunch of that boy was just enough for that boy. In John 6:5-13. But when that little lunch got into the hands of the Bread of Life it changed from not enough to more than sufficient. Very soon you will know the meaning of more than sufficient. (Amen!)

I’ve told you the story before when I wanted to move to my house near the camp in 1985 and I needed some money to just put in windows and doors. I cried to God. Got to church the following Sunday and one young girl came, very young girl, with an envelope in her hand  and said, God said, I should go and give it to you. And I looked at her. When did you begin to hear from God? And then she said, I’ve been believing God that one day I will travel. I’ve been saving all the money they gave me. Now God said I should go and give it to you. I checked with God . I know it was God. I took the money and I prayed for her. The money was just what I needed to solve my problem. You see what you need to know brethren – a single ‘God bless you.’ from a man of God can change your life especially when it comes form the bottom of his heart. That’s why I pity those who miss HG night. They don’t know what they are missing. May I say from the bottom of my heart. God bless you! (Amen!)

A man came to visit her father and said, Please I’m going abroad with my  children on holidays and my daughter says that his own daughter is her friend. Will you please allow your daughter to go with my daughter to America? We will pay for her ticket. Whatever we do for our own daughter we will do for your daughter. All that the girl gave was not even half of the money for the ticket but God knows how to multiply. He knows how to multiply five loaves and 2 fishes. Once it gets into His hands He can multiply. Today, the multiplying power of God will work on your behalf. (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord says there is someone who has been bleeding from the ear. You can check. The bleeding has stopped and the wound has been healed.

Category 3 are the rich. Who are the rich? These are those who have enough and to spare. These are the people who have savings accounts. They eat all the food they want to eat. They can wear whatever clothes they want to eat. They have some extra save. They have a lot of joy. Proverbs 22:7 It said the rich rules over the poor. Proverbs 14:20 it said the rich has many friends. Proverbs 19:8 the Bible said many people are the friends  of somebody who give gifts. Because rich people have the means to give gifts therefore they have many friends. They buy friends with gifts. The Bible says that heir money can be likened to a strong city because according to Ecclesiastes 7:12 It said, Money is a defence so even of there  are robbers around you build a big wall round your house. Money speaks. In fact somebody said when money speaks nobody checks the grammar. Glory be to God! In other words even of you are not highly  educated if money is there you can come and blow guns – it’s all right!

But the rich have challenges. Proverbs 23:5 tells us that riches can develop wings and fly away. Ecclesiastes 8:8 said that you can’t even buy off death. Proverbs 11:28 says those who trust in their riches will fall. But there is one problem with those who are rich – they tend to be proud. He has 2 or 3 cars, 2 or 3 houses, 2 or 3 house helps so when he’s walking around he thinks he’s already on top of the world. The Bible says such people will find it difficult to enter into the Kingdom of God.

But  what I discovered is that this only happens to those who are just rich. The moment they become wealthy. The moment they move from the level of rich to the level of wealthy, they begin to sober down. So the cure for being just rich is to become richer. But I know many of us will want to settle among the rich. We don’t want to be poor. To be ordinary comfortable is dangerous but to be rich attractive as it may appear is not the best place to stay because that is not the very best and the Almighty God wants the best for you. That is why whenever somebody does something for me I always tell them, Next time it will be more! Because I know you have not reached the height that God has for you yet.

Category 4 are the wealthy. These people have enough and a lot to spare. Like Job. In Job 1:1-3 Job was the greatest man at that time. He was wealthy! I mean he was wealthy. But even the wealthy have challenges. Number 1 one could be wealthy and still be sick like Naaman for example in 2 Kings 5:1. Or because one is wealthy, one can become a subject of envy. Or if a massive tragedy strikes, like it happened to Job – everything that he had was wiped out in one day. If things go wrong for the wealthy it becomes very, very glaring. But God has a cure.

The plan of God for you is not even to be just wealthy! The plan is for you to flourish! God wants you to be in that place where it doesn’t matter what may come you will never be poor again! (Amen!) There are some people who have crossed the border of poverty forever. They are the people called the flourishing. They are those who have much more than enough and much more to spare. I have quickly gone over the  rich and the wealthy because I don’t want you to stay there I want us to go and focus on the flourishing because that’s where you are going. In 1 Kings 10:27 the Bible says in the days of Solomon silver was treated as ordinary stones. That is what is called flourishing. Now I’ll give you an illustration that will help you. can you imagine yourself being a businessman or woman, buying and selling and you tell all your managers: The only money that must pass into my account must be the 500 naira denominations. Any denomination less than that I don’t want to see. Anything less than N500 don’t bring it near me at all! That is what is called flourishing. We are talking about  someone who is so flourishing that according to the word of God, will never be bothered whether there is famine, whether there is economic collapse – he will never again be bothered! He has so  much now that it doesn’t matter what happens he will never again be bothered!  That is going to be your testimony.

I’ve told you the story before of a friend of mine who was driving in Lagos and the car broke down, I think the tyre went flat, and while the  driver was fixing the tyre he decided to walk to stroll and then he saw the building of a bank. He said, I remember this bank! Yes… I remember this bank! I kept some money here. 10 years ago I kept some money here! So he went in and said, I want to see the manager       And they said the manager is not around. The accountant said, Can I help you? He said, Yes. I put 10 million pounds here, 10 years ago. I want to know what is the interest now. He forgot 10 Except that I won’t let you forget it there! (Amen!) That is what is called flourishing.

Psalm 1:1-3 says you will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water. David said in Psalm 23:5 Thou anointest my head with oil my cup runneth over. Beginning from today your cup will begin to run over in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) To flourish means God blesses you so much you will tell God, God this is too much! God says I have just started. Can anybody receive that one now? That will be your testimony in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

I was talking to somebody some years ago. He said, sir, there’s nothing I can do to stop money from coming in. Its too late for me now. All I need to do is sit down and the money just must keep coming in. There’s nothing I can do to stop it. And when I tried to find out. I found that his man has more than a hundred houses in Lagos so the rent must just keep coming in – from the East, from the West, from the South, your blessing will just keep coming in. You better say ‘Amen’ to that. Thank You!

Here we are talking about prosperity and the Lord is solving the problem of one fellow. He said that somebody’s getting a brand new brain. (Amen!) Thank You Father!

The Lord said I should tell someone here, that examiner that you fear will be lenient with you this time… You know God is wonderful. While we are talking about flourishing somebody is thinking about passing an exam. The examiner will be lenient this time round. On behalf of all the students let’s shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) Thank You! Isn’t that my God. He knows what your needs are. Every need shall be met here tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

The poor can be likened to a desert where there is very little rain. And you know one thing? The reason why the poor remain poor is because the only thing they can do to come out of poverty they won’t do it. That’s why the Bible says the destruction of the poor is their poverty! The elders have a saying. They say poverty will not allow the poor to prosper. They say when he’s supposed to give the sacrifice of a goat, he gave a rat. So the poverty continues to increase. Brethren there is only one key to open your way through the door of poverty. It is not fasting, even though fasting is very good. It is not prayer, even though prayer is very powerful. It is giving. Luke 6:38 : Give and you shall be given. What does that mean? Don’t give and you will not be given. Ecclesiastes 11:3 If you don’t load your cloud it is not going to rain. Start where you are. Begin from your poverty begin to give and you will be amazed how quickly God will bring you out of poverty.

I’ve told you the story of a boy. Every time I saw him at Ebute Metta more than 10 years ago he will give me 1 naira. And  when I say, Thank you my boy, he will say to me, One day I will buy you a jet. And I always wondered – this boy,  just a naira each time. Then last year or so I was in London and a young man came to me and gave me a large sum of money. I looked at the money surprised. I said, Thank you very much God bless you. But he saw the surprise on my face. He said, Daddy, you don’t remember me? He said I’m that little boy giving you one, one naira. He said I don’t have the money for a jet yet but I am going to buy you one and I said ‘Amen boy! Not only will you buy one for me you will buy one for yourself!’

How many of you will reach the top? Are you sure? Let me hear your ‘Amen!’; (Amen!) The comfortable they are like a pool of water that can dry up quickly and the reason is because often they sow sparingly. So if the rain fails slightly the pool will dry. The root is of a shallow well! It can dry still and often because the rich don’t pay their tithes correctly. But the wealthy they are like a deep well in contact with a hidden source of water. It takes a great disturbance to cause them to dry but the flourishing they are like a river producing well, a well so deep, so full of water that it is a spring producing the river. They never, never dry and my prayer for you today is that beginning from now your source of blessing will never dry. (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight the doctors don’t even know what is wrong with you. The Lord asked me to tell you, it doesn’t even matter, He has already healed you! (Amen!)

So what do I do to flourish? What must I do so that I may be one of those who will flourish for the rest of my life? First and foremost, make God happy. Do what? Make God happy. How can I make God happy? Luke 15:10 The Bible says whenever a sinner repents Jesus gets up from His throne and dances before the angels. You can become an incurable soul winner that nothing can stop you from winning souls. God will be pleased with you and each time you win a soul God will say, Son, daughter, I bless you! Proverbs 10:22 says the blessing of the Lord it maketh rich and addeth no sorrows. In the mighty name of Jesus, God bless you! (Amen!)

After you have made God happy then follow the principles of His Kingdom. The first one that I told you – give. The second thing is sow. There is a difference between giving and sowing. When I give a gift to friend of mine it is a gift, I’m giving. When it is time for offering I give. But when it comes to sowing I am telling God directly that this is a seed that I am planting and if you sow bountifully according to 2 Corinthians 9:6 you will reap bountifully. I’ve told you the story when I gave ties to 7 of the elders to join me in ministry, ties began to flow in. Everybody who travelled brought me a tie! One day I said, Lord can’t these people find a shirt? God said, You sow ties, you reap ties. So I said okay. SO I began to sow shoes and even though I had to wait for some time before the shoes came, shoes began to flow in. And by the grace of God now, I’ve sown cars – cars  and you better get ready, when you begin to see them – blue one, white one, yellow one, red one… Whatever you sow that is what you will reap. Make sure you sow on good grounds. You can get the tape for July  last year it will tell you the various grounds. But you know this already. There must be some thing s to do that will bring a man to that level , that level of prosperity where he can never again lack!  I shared a little of it with you in January. The summary of it is – Be an altar man!

Abraham had stocks of servants. The servants in the house of Abraham were enough to forma  small army and I will be talking to you in the 2nd session about Solomon. People who are so wealthy it is difficult to imagine. These people are altar men. The altar is the meeting place between God and man. It is where God and man meet. Where they exchange gifts and when you go to the altar you want to give God your best and in return God will give you His best. Let me give you just one example. Genesis 22:1-18… Thank You Father!

The Lord said there is someone here tonight there is a pain like fire burning inside your chest. The Lord asked me to tell you maybe you didn’t notice that the fire has been put out. That fire will never come up again.

Abraham offered Isaac on the altar. God said to Abraham, By myself have I sworn… when the Almighty God begins to swear you know something mighty is about to happen. He said, In blessing I will bless you, in multiplying I will multiply you! Because you have given me your best I will give you My best! That’s why you discovered that Abraham just began to increase in wealth. Be an altar man. Constantly meet with God at His altar. Offer Him your best. He will respond. He will give you His best. Remember Malachi 3:10 when God says you are to bring all the tithes into your house He said He will pour you out a blessing that there will not be enough room to receive! That kind of blessing where there is no room to contain is the portion of those who pay their tithes. what then do you think will be the portion of those who will say 10% is too small!

I’ve told you the story of a man – 1979 we went to Kenneth Hagin camp Meeting in America and one night one man got up and asked for permission to speak. There were about 17 thousand of us and he said, Brethren whatever you all contribute tonight is what I will contribute. And we all looked at ourselves. Is he mad? 17,000 of us he said whatever we gave, he would give. While we were still thinking, he went further to say: I beg you give your best. And we all said, all right sir, you are in trouble and we contributed 3.5 million dollars because they had to count it, he said he wanted to know. So they told him and he got up and said, Brethren is that all you can do. And I said, I must know this  man. This man has a story to tell, I must know his story. And I found out that 5 years before he started his business with 500 dollars and made a covenant with God and said, God! I will not insult you by paying tithes – I will give you 90% I will keep 10%! Within 5 years his business has already exceeded 50 million dollars! I don’t know who God is talking to here but one day somebody so going to stand here and say, Everything you all give that is what I will give. Who is that fellow?  Let me hear your ‘Amen!’ loud and clear ! (Amen!)

What must I do to flourish? You must be committed to all the programmes of God. Those who flourish are those who are so committed to the programmes of God that the Bible says they are planted in the house of God. Psalm 92:12-14, They that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish as the palm tree. Those who are so committed to everything that is God that you will regard them as planted in the house of God. They don’t wait for any programmes to be announced. They seek for opportunities to do something for God. We want to build a house for God: Ah Amen! I’m in it! We want to open a  mission field in Gambia: Ah the Lord will use me! We want to begin to operate a University for Jesus Christ: The Lord will use me!  Convention is coming: Lord You will use me! God has been looking for treasurers all this while. I believe He will find one among us today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Finally, you must pray for anointing to flourish. Deuteronomy 8:18 it said it is God that gives power to get wealth.  When God anoints you to flourish, everything you touch will change to gold. Do you know you can sell water and flourish. The richest man in the world today. I mean the richest in the whole world, started off as a carpenter. And that’s what he is still doing till today – making furniture. He’s the richest man in the whole world today. He’s richer than all the Arab sheiks. He has beaten Bill Gates to second position!  He started as a carpenter. so if anybody tells you that because you are very lowly now that all these prayers, all these pronouncement s are not for you – that fellow will be surprised. I say that fellow will be surprised.(Amen!) If a carpenter can become the richest man in the world there is somebody here today who  will beat him very soon! (Amen!) All you need is anointing, anointing to get wealth, anointing to flourish. I told you the fellow who was selling ground nut who now has three jets. When God anoints you anywhere you turn doors will open. Any door you knock at will be opened unto you. (Amen!)

Let me round up this first session by telling you one more point –  anointing is for the holy. Hebrews 1:9 Because you love righteousness and hate iniquity therefore God, even your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows. There is somebody here that God is going to anoint more than anyone else. That fellow must love righteousness and hate iniquity. Anointing does not stay on the head of a sinner. If you pour oil on the head of a sinner it will flow off so if you are here and you have not surrendered your life to Jesus and you want to partake of the anointing that God is about to pour on His people tonight the first thing you must do is you must surrender your life to Jesus, let His blood wash away your sins. It is then and only  then that His anointing can stay on your head.

So if you are here and you are not yet born again and you want to surrender your life to Jesus or you are a backslider and you want to return to Jesus I will count up to 10. Come forward quickly, come and give your life to Jesus. His blood will  cleanse you from all your sins and then the anointing of God can stay. I am counting now 1. You want to give your life to Jesus come now. I know some of you are coming from a long distance. Make sure you carry your bag with you when you are coming. Come and give your life to Jesus now. 2. 3, 4.. the Blood of Jesus cleanses from all sins. It will wash you from all sins. He will forgive you whatever you have done in the past. He will give you a brand new beginning. 5… I know some of you are coming from a long distance.. this is your hour of salvation – the greatest miracle you can ever receive is the salvation of your soul. Until He has cleansed you from all your sin there is no room for any further blessing. 6….. Hurry up! Hurry up! Hurry up! Those  of you who are coming on the way 7.. The gates of mercy are open tonight. God is asking you to come from every direction. Come and surrender your life to Him. He will save your soul. He will forgive your sin. He’s a loving God but you must surrender to Him first. You must mean business when you say, Lord I come to surrender. 8 now.. 8… I know some of you are coming from a long distance, at least let me see that you are already moving forward. Counsellors let them get forward first – don’t block them. Hurry up this is a final call. This is your own day of salvation – Don’t miss it! Don’t miss it! 9 now! Those of you who are still coming, keep coming, keep coming! Keep coming!  I know some of you are from a long distance but keep coming! Keep coming! The Lord loves you so much! He brought you tonight so that He can save your soul and prepare you for heaven.

Now those of you who are already in front pray to God: Lord, I have come to surrender my soul! Save my soul! Forgive my sins! Lord cleanse me, cleanse me from all my sins and I will serve You.  I will serve You as my Lord. I will serve You as my Saviour. Come into my life. Take over! Take over Lord! Those of you who are still coming, keep coming. Hurry up! Just make sure you get here before we finish praying! And the rest of us let’s stretch our hands towards these people and pray them, pray for their salvation. Pray that the one who saved your soul will save their own soul too. Intercede for them brethren! Intercede on their behalf. Call on the Lord, the Saviour, to save the souls of these people! That He will cleanse them in His blood and write their names in the Book of Life. Pray for them brethren! Intercede for these people! Intercede on their behalf.

Those of you who are still coming, just keep coming there is still room for you. Keep coming! Keep coming! There is still room for you! keep coming! Keep coming! There’s still room! there’s still room! Come and surrender your life to Him! Don’t miss this day! Come quickly now. Only one minute to go and then we will pray! Hurry up quickly – this is your day. Thank You Father! Come and surrender your life to Him. Backsliders come home, come home – the Lord is waiting for you. Don’t miss this day! Don’t miss this day! 30 seconds to go and then we pray! Come on quickly. This is our own day of salvation Don’t miss this day! Don’t miss this day! If you are coming, hurry up! Hurry up! God bless you! Hurry up! Hurry up! God bless you! Come quickly! Find your way to the front! God bless you! God bless you! I can see you coming I will wait. Come on quickly! Hurry up! Hurry up! This is your day. Thank You Father! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Thank You Jesus! Keep coming. Hurry up! This is your day! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Thank You Father! Keep coming! Keep coming! Keep coming! Make sure you get here before I finish praying! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Father, I thank You. Thank You for Your word which brought these people into your kingdom. Father you promised that whoseoever would come unto You, You will in no wise caste out. These people have come unto You now. Please receive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Receive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Cleanse them in Your blood in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Write their names in the book of life in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Father, from tonight anytime You are anointing Your own, anoint these people also in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Let them serve You for the rest of their life In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now if you are coming still keep coming it is not too late. Glory be to God! Now those of you in front let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). I am rejoicing with you and the Almighty God is rejoicing with you too and I want to promise you, God helping me, from today, I will be praying for you so I am going to need your names, address and prayer requests so that I can continue to pray for you. And make sure the address is correct so that when I ask God to  send your miracle it will be sent to the address that you put down. So if you will follow this brother to my left he will lead you to where some Pastors are waiting. they will collect his information and then you can come back quickly. You can begin to go now. Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause for this harvest of souls.

Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ Now we are about to pray but there are some people who have major testimonies that they want to share. They can begin to proceed to the back of the altar and they can pray even as they move towards that direction. let’s stand on our feet. The one who is going to be the greatest of all let me hear him or her shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

Now with your hands lifted up pray to God and say Father, anoint me to flourish. Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God!: Anoint me to flourish! Almighty God Anoint me to flourish! The Lord will bless you indeed He will enlarge your coast. His  hand will be upon you for good and no evil will come near you at all. If you believe that say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

For just few minutes I want us to take a look at Solomon among those who flourished Solomon was number one. There is a difference between a river and an ocean. No matter how big a river is it is not as big as an ocean. Among those w ho flourish there are those who flourish. There are some people who flourish so much that other flourishers will look at them and say definitely you flourished. In 2 Chronicles 9:22 the Bible says, and Solomon surpassed all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom and in verse 25 of the same chapter it says that Solomon had 4,000 stores for horses and chariots, of 12,000 bestowed in the chariot cities. Let us try and put this in modern language. can you imagine yourself having an estate and out of the estate you carve out a little section which we will call ‘cars village’. And there are only 4,00 houses there for your drivers. every driver has a house. A driver for a car; so 4,00 houses for 4,000 drivers. Automatically you have 4,000 cars only. Is anybody ready to believe God for that? (Amen!)

Or maybe we can take it just a step further and say you have your own private airport and there were only 4,00 airplanes in your private airport. Is that easy? when Solomon wants to  arrange for daily bread, daily ration 1 Kings 4:22-23 tells us that on a daily basis the food that they eat in Solomon’s household includes 30 raised cows, 100 sheep, a lot of fat chicken and plenty of bush meat. Read it, it is in the Bible. One family. every day 30 cows, 100 sheep not counting chicken and bush meat. How many of you still think that the God of Solomon can also do the same thing for you? I know it is difficult to imagine but that is where God is taking you. (Amen!) I want you to say the ‘Amen’ loud and clear. (Amen!)

What makes it easy for me to believe is a story I’ve already told you before. 1981 I cried to God, Father build me a house. And God said,  Son don’t ask me for a house I’ve decided to build you a city. It is not a long time ago. Already we are beginning to see the city. In ten years time, if the Lord tarries, this city will be one of the biggest in the whole world and you better say Amen  to that because in the same moment we are saying my house will be one? How many of you believe your own house will be there? (Amen!)

Don’t believe what your pocket is telling you. Believe what God is telling you. Last month He commanded you to be great. Your greatness had already started! (Amen!) This month I’m anointing you to flourish. So shall it be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) All of you who came by bus it’s not going to be long before you come in your own car so you can imagine that very soon there’ll be a car village and your car will be there. (Amen!) Let me hear your ‘Amen’ loud and clear!

So what is the secret of Solomon? what brought him to this level of flourishing? Solomon was not a very clever boy. He wasn’t a professor at the beginning . Even the passage we read at the beginning told us so. The father said, Ina very polite manner. My son is young and tender – the word tender there, really means this boy is not too clever – but clever or not clever, he knew that if only he could attract the attention of God, things will change. So he thought what  can I do that I can attract the attention of God? He said I will give Him and offering that  nobody had ever done before – not even my father! And the Bible tells us in 2 Chronicles 1:6-12 Solomon gave God 1,000 burnt offerings in 1 day and God said, I’ve never seen this before! I must visit this man. May the Almighty God visit you tonight. (Amen!) God visited him and said Solomon! What’s the problem? what do you want that has caused you to do so much. Solomon said, Before everybody discovers that I am not too clever, give me wisdom let me surprise them. God said is that what you want? He a said, That’s what I’m asking for – wisdom, understanding! – that’s all! That’s all right. Wisdom is given to you. Understanding is given to you. And what you did not ask for, to show you that I am the Jehovah El Shaddai, I will give it to you,

If you read verse 13-15 almost immediately after God spoke things began to happen. Before you knew it Solomon had become so wealthy that he already had 1,400 chariots. 1,400 camels. 1,400 cars. Solomon said, This thing is working. I gave 1,000 burnt offerings, I got the wisdom I wanted. I got the understanding I wanted. In addition I have 1,000 chariots. He said, In that case I will do more. 2 Chronicles 7:5 – look at what he did again! King Solomon offered a sacrifice of 22,000 oxen and 120,000 sheep. At the beginning he offered 1,000 burnt offerings. The second time 22,000 cows! 120,000 sheep! The Lord said, is that so? You want to trade with me? I will show you that I also I’m a good trader. The Bible tells us from that moment onwards every year 676 talents of gold will come in to Solomon! It became difficult to even keep record of the gold that was coming in so that whenever anybody brought silver, Solomon will say, Go and dump it at the back yard.  You have prayed tonight. Everything you asked for you have already got it in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) What you have not asked for will be given to you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Let me encourage you! From now on make up your mind that on a daily basis, your giving to God will increase; that on every opportunity you have you will trade with Him and watch what He will do. It is not gong to be long before you stand here and testify that I was nothing when I came in July 2004 but now look what Jesus has done. So shall it be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)If you believe it let me hear you say, Amen! (Amen!)

You are going to pray just one more prayer. I know you have prayed a lot of prayers but you are going to pray one more prayer. You are going to ask God for grace to be God’s partner. So stand on your feet and ask God for that singular grace! Lord! Give me the grace to be Your partner. I want to work with You! I know if I can just work with You I will flourish! If only You can be my senior  Partner, I know I will flourish! I will flourish beyond what anybody can dream possible. Give me the grace Lord to flourish! The grace to be Your partner in every area of my life! The grace Lord! I  want to be Your partner. I want to be Your Partner in soul-winning. I want to be Your partner in the building of Your kingdom on earth! The grace! The grace to be Your partner! The grace to serve You joyfully, with gladness. Lord give me the grace – to be a committed partner of the Most High God! Give me the grace Lord for the rest of my life! Give me the grace to be Your partner for the rest of my life serving You with joy, with gladness, with all that I have, with all that is available to me. Give me the grace Lord to be Your partner! I want to beat Solomon! I want to beat Solomon! Give me the grace Lord to be Your Partner! To serve You all the days of my life! Thank You Father! Glory be to God! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) So shall it be!

The wisdom you need will be given unto you! (Amen!) The understanding you need will be given unto you! (Amen!) The anointing you need will be given unto you! (Amen!) The grace, the gifts that you need will be given unto you! (Amen!) Long life will be yours! (Amen!) Peace of mind will be yours! Divine health will be yours! (Amen!)

AMEN!

So shall it be!

 Alleluia!

UNLIMITED GREATNESS

6th of August, 2004

Once upon a time there was a boy, hated by his brothers, ignored by his parents, with very, very little hope in the world …. that he can ever become great. But one day he took a decision that in spite of everything he will praise the Lord. He said, “My heart is fixed within me, I will praise the Lord!” and God answered from heaven, “Son, my own heart is also fixed within me, I will make you exceedingly great,” (Amen!) That boy is David but there is another boy, another girl, here tonight , boy compared to God, who is saying, my heart is fixed within me, I will praise the Lord. And God is going to reply, is ready to reply that His own heart is also fixed, to make you exceedingly great. If you are that boy, if you are that girl, if you are that man, that woman, for 2 minutes praise God in a way that He will know that your heart is fixed within you..

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! Say Lord, my heart is fixed within me! I will praise you! I will magnify Your Holy Name! I will praise You all the days of my life! I will do your Will!

Thank You for those You will heal. Thank You for those You will set free. Glory be to Your Holy Name Lord! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Now I want you to shake hands with at least 7 people and say, “Welcome to a time of miracles.” Glory be to God!  God Bless you! You may be seated!

Now, last year they were already pregnant but we said we will wait till the babies arrive. Now the babies have arrived. (Amen!). Then last year some came trusting God for the fruit of the womb. Their own babies too have arrived. Now I want all those children to be brought forward for special blessing. If you came 2 years ago, believing God for children and the children are now here and you came last year and the children have arrived, now begin to bring those  children, we want to pray for them.

Now we can see the rivers that are still flowing – rivers of babies still flowing. I just want to announce to those of you that have blocked the road because I’m told that the roads are blocked solid – al the way to the Holy Ghost Arena, so if you are anywhere blocked on the road, don’t worry, the blessing will reach your children there. (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)  When I see people like you, it makes me happy that I am serving the Lord. When I see all the homes where there will be no more weeping every month, I just want to dance because my Lord is good. Let me hear you shout Alleluia! one more time. Glory be to God! .. Nobody will bother to count…. there are too many to count. But how many twins do we have? Maybe we can ….. ah there are almost too many to be counted! .. Lets see, just in case, just in case…. is any one with a triplet? …….. Alleluia! triplets? Come forward,. come forward! So we can use you as a point of contact for the rest. Come to the stage. Glory be to God! Congratulations. So is it one boy? All 3 are girls? So you are going to have 3 son-in-laws! Wow! Glory be to God!

Will you please stretch your hands towards these countless children – all those who love children, all those w ho love children stretch your hands towards all these children and bless them. Please pray for them, that the Almighty God will bless these children, bless their parents, keep sickness away from them, keep death away from them, keep demons away from them and make them vessels unto honour in His hands. That God will provide for their parents, bless them from the bottom of your hearts. Thank You Father! Glory be to Your Name Lord! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Father, on behalf of these countless families I say Thank You! Thank You for answered prayers. Thank You for wiping away the tears from the eyes of Your children. Glory be to Your Holy Name Lord!

Father, I’m using these ones that are on the altar as a point of contact for all of these Your children: lay Your mighty hands on them; bless them, (Amen!) protect them (Amen!), prosper them (Amen!), let our joy over them last forever (Amen!) Keep sickness away from them (Amen!) Keep demons away from them, (Amen!) Let them grow up to become vessels unto honour in your hands. (Amen!) Provide for their parents. (Amen!) And let their joy forever be full! (Amen!) Thank You my Father.

Father, all those who are trusting You for the fruit of the womb, by this time next year let them bring their own children also (Amen!) Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Well, you will dance back now……….

….. I like this! I love children! That’s probably why the Almighty God has given me the anointing to bring many of them into the world. For those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, September Holy Ghost Service is your special month (Amen!) Because of the crowd there’s no way we could lay hands on you today but September, even though we will continue our series on the Journey to Greatness before we pray for anyone else in September we’ll pray for all those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb. In any case some of you will already be pregnant before you come. (Amen!) This  time next year in Jesus’ Name you will also be lifting up your own children to the Lord. (Amen!)

On 8th October, by the grace of God, there’ll be a special Holy Ghost Service in Abuja. You are all cordially invited. And then on the 12th November, by the special grace of God there will be Holy Ghost Service in Ibadan. We’ll be talking about the God of Elijah. It’s going to be a very powerful Holy Ghost Service . The Holy Ghost Congress of this year is from 13th to 18th December and we’ll be discussing the Master Keys, so get ready for a very beautiful last months of the year. I want to remind all our covenant partners that by now we should be hearing from you. The Lord will continue to prosper you. I’ve been informed that Pastor Warren Beeman from San Antonio is in the house. Wherever you are seated brother God bless you, you are most welcome. Maybe by tomorrow you’ll be able to bring greetings to the people.

At this time of the year, we normally give a brief report of what God has done in the past one year. On the physical side the Almighty God has helped us to develop this camp seriously. We were able to build 28 dormitories. We were able to build 364 1-bedroom suites. We were also by the grace of God able to extend this auditorium as you can see. We were able to build a new children’s kitchen and dining hall. We have been able to build a new maternity centre. We have been able to sink 8 new boreholes. We have been able to construct the new ring road which makes it very easy to get out of here. We have been able to complete the Pastor’s lodge and we have been able to tar quite a bit of our roads.

On the spiritual aspect, the past year in Nigeria alone we have been establishing an average of 4 churches per day. If we take the rest of the nations of the world into account, the average will be little more than 5 per day. New nations of the world had joined the Redeemed family include Fiji Islands, Guinea Conakry and by the grace of God we have become the first Pentecostal church to be registered in Portugal. (Amen!) Keep on praying for us. There is still a lot of work to be done. If you look at the crowd, sitting on the roads. Every road, all the way to the Congress Arena there, you will know that if we double this auditorium it still will not take all of them. And by this time next year in Jesus’ Name we will be more than double.

So pray to God… what will you want me to do to help this work, so that the work of God will not slow down. And please, keep on praying for me as  the work is increasing, that God will increase my strength and anointing. there was a time when travelling by plane was a pleasure, when it was once a year. But now when I have to do it almost every week it has become almost a burden. Many a times when I wake up in a strange room, I won’t even know the way to the toilet because yesterday the hotel where I stayed the door to the toilet is to the left, today it is right. So pray for strength and we haven’t started – we are going to cover the whole world. How many of you will say ‘Amen’ to that?

Now very quickly,  Luke 1:34-37 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? [35] And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. [36] And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. [37] For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Please turn to your neighbour and say, My own will not be impossible with God. Turn to the fellow on the other side and say, “I know my own will not be impossible with God!” When we talk about unlimited greatness many of us will look at ourselves and say, how can it be? How can I, an ordinary messenger become the President of a nation? Ask Joshua he will tell you that with God nothing shall be impossible. How can I, an unknown little boy, suddenly become very great? Ask David, he will tell you for with God nothing shall be impossible. How can I, a little girl, with no helper at all? And I will say, “Ask Esther and she will tell you for with God nothing shall be impossible.” How can somebody who is considered barren,  suddenly become the mother of a triplet? I will say, “Ask those who have just been here. They will tell you for with God nothing shall be impossible.” I want to decree to you today. Every impossibility in your life shall become possible! (Amen!)

Now when we talk about doing the impossible there are certain things that must be in place for the impossible to become possible. The first one is called authority. A police man no matter how strong, cannot stop a trailer that is running full speed along the expressway. But if he stands and he raises up his hand. Whether the driver likes it or not that trailer must stop because the policeman has authority. By what authority can God make the impossible, possible in your life?

God said in  Jeremiah 32:27 He said, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? He said the authority by which I can make the impossible, possible in your life is because I am the God of all flesh. That’s why all He has to do is raise  up His hand and suddenly the impossible in your life, will become possible. That’s why I have good news for somebody here today, because you came tonight all those things you considered impossible will be your testimony next month. I’m not sure you heard what I said. I said those things you consider impossible today, by next Holy Ghost Service, they will be your testimonies! (Amen!)

Not only did He have the authority, His own authority is the supreme one – Psalm 91:1 calls Him the Most High. Genesis 18:25 calls Him the Judge of the whole earth! That’s why Psalm 33:8-9 says Let the whole earth fear before him because He spake and it was done. he is the supreme judge of the whole earth. All He has to do is speak and it is done.

In the month of May I was in the East to dedicate some of our churches. As I was entering into one of the churches, God spoke to me and I repeated what He said. I said there is someone here who will never weep again and there was a man there who had had stroke. He heard the word. He said ‘Amen’. Within 5 minutes every trace of stroke disappeared from his body.. (Amen!) On behalf of my Father, I am saying the same thing tonight, there is somebody here tonight who will never weep again! (Amen!)

God has authority, supreme authority. The Bible says He does as He pleases but He said He will have mercy on whom He will have mercy. That’s why you find in John 5….

The Lord said, that I’ve said it to someone here before,  and He says I am repeating what I have said, He said, I will break the back of those w ho want to break your back. (Amen!) In John 5:1-9

Thank You Father! The Lord is healing someone and He said, there had been some rumblings inside your throat and it is gone now. (Amen!)

O Thank You Father! The Lord says there is someone here, those who are laying siege on you, those who are laying siege, God said I will cause them to hear a noise. (Amen!)

O Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here for some time now, there’s a constant noise like rainfall in your head. And he said, maybe you didn’t notice but the noise has disappeared.

Jesus came to the pool of Bethesda. Several people were there who were sick but He picked only one, who had been there for 38 years and He healed the man! And as soon as He finished healing that one He left the place. If I had the opportunity, I will say, “Sir, why did you do that, there are several others?” And I’m sure His answer would have been, I am the most high. I do what I please.. that I show mercy to whom I will show mercy. Somebody is going to receive mercy here tonight. If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

So the first thing you need to make the impossible possible is authority. The second thing is power. The policeman has the authority to arrest robbers. But if the policeman finds some people robbing and they have guns and the policeman has no gun, if he likes himself, he won’t even talk, he will dodge because even though he has the authority, he hasn’t got the power. But thank God, my God has not only authority He also has power!  The Bible says in Psalm 62:11 God has spoken once, twice have I heard it that power belongs to God. Not only has He power, the Bible says He has all power! Psalm 91:1 calls Him the Almighty, the One who has all power. That’s why He said to Sarah, I know you are 90 years old but the One talking to you is the One who has all powerI have good news for somebody here today! This very day the power of God will be manifested in your life!. I’ve told you the story before…

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here, He said tonight the garment of shame has left you. (Amen!)

Thank You Almighty God!

I was travelling to Ilesha and I got to Ife. I saw a car parked, the bonnet was up and I saw one of my daughters standing by so I stopped: What’s wrong with your car? She said, What is wrong with the car is not the problem, it’s God who sent you. I said, What’s the problem? She said, the baby in my womb has not moved for several days. The doctor said the baby is dead and I was just thinking, do I allow them to evacuate or not? And now you are here. Just lay your hand on that stomach, speak the word of power! So I lay my hand on her stomach. I said Baby come back to life! And immediately, immediately, the baby began to move again. That child graduated from the University last year. (Amen!) It is in the name of Jesus I’m speaking to you today. I am speaking the word of power! Every good thing in your life, that the enemy had killed, I command that they should come back to life! I say I command that they come back to life. (Amen!)

Not only has He power, He has supreme power, supreme power. In Daniel 3:19-29

Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s someone here, He said that opportunity that you thought was lost forever, because my servant has spoken, it shall be restored to you. (Amen!)

He has supreme power. In Daniel 3:19-29, Nebuchadnezzar said to Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego, I’m going to throw you into the fiery furnace …. who is that God who will deliver you out of my hands? By the time God finished with him, he said, I surrender. Every force, every power that had been working against your greatness, they will surrender to God tonight. (Amen!)

Those who are older members, they will remember this story. We went to start a branch of the church in Ago Iwoye. There was one juju man there who said, not in this town. So he came to the crusade ground with his pocket loaded with charms and he had charmed alligator peppers that if he could just spray it on the people, everybody will catch smallpox. The preaching was going on. He put his hand into his pocket to bring out the charms and the hand got stuck. He pulled his hand, the hand refused to come out. When they gave the altar call he was the first one to run forward. All the powers of the enemy shall be swallowed by the power of my God.(Amen!)

The third thing that is needed to make the impossible possible is abundant wealth. Tremendous resources. If you ask the policeman to chase some robbers and arrest them and they are on motorcycles and he is on foot, you know what will be the result. But if the policeman has a helicopter, walkie-talkies, vehicles….  then wherever the culprits are trying to hide he will be able to get them and arrest them. Somebody was asking when they made the announcement that there is no need to go across the road to go and buy food that there is plenty of food for everybody on the Camp here. He said, How much do they pay for the food here? They said, No, no, no! During the Convention, the food is free! He said, Impossible! How can you say that all these people will eat free?

There are several things you want to do that today sound impossible but because the One whose name is Jehovah El-Shaddai is going to provide for you, every impossibility in your life will become possible in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Not only can He feed 5,000 with five loaves and 2 fishes, part of His wealth is your spare parts. If there is any part of your body that is not functioning well, we can ask God for spare parts. He has them! He has a store! Can somebody born blind ever see? With man this is impossible but with God all things are possible! Will a man with one leg ever get 2 legs again? With man that is impossible. But with God all things are possible!

Let me remind you of one or two stories quickly, just to let you know that there is no impossibility with God.

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here – pus mixed with blood has been coming out of your ears. The  Lord asked me to tell you to check, it has already dried up.

And the Lord said there is someone here, he said your greatest reproach will soon become your greatest testimony. (Amen!)

A boy was born with only one testicle. The parents, in an attempt to help him took him to a herbalist who destroyed the only one. The boy grew up. I don’t know what was wrong with him but he went ahead and married. Of course you know the result of the marriage – no children. Then we held a programme at Rowe Park. I think it was 1985 and this young man came there and the power of God hit him. Suddenly he got 2 brand new testicles. The day he cam e to share his testimony with me in my office, the wife  was about 6 months pregnant. So when he said he wanted to show me, I said, There’s no need, I can see the evidence! Everything the devil has stolen from you shall be fully restored today in Jesus’ name! (Amen!)

So God has authority. He has the power. He has the resources to make every impossibility in your life possible. He could ask the sun to stand still because He wants to perform a miracle in somebody’s life and I’m sure He’s going to do that for somebody here in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) He can ask the sun to go back because He wants to perform a miracle in somebody’s life. At least you remember the story of the woman who had not menstruated for almost 10 years and she came to the Holy Ghost Service in London and 2 words came to her one after the other. Number one God said He was subtracting 10 years from the life of somebody…

O Thank You my Father. The Lord said there’s a woman here, you have had premature menopause. The Lord asked me to tell you, not only is He restoring your menses, get ready for a set of twins – one girl, one boy. Please next year when you bring your children remind me so we can hear your testimony….

Oh Thank You Father! I know this will be a special night.

God said there is someone here, some people have been blocking your way. he asked me to tell you, you will overtake them and surpass them.

So there was this woman who came to the Holy Ghost Service in London….. Ahhh I want to preach but Daddy is saying something…

The Lord said there is someone here, there  is one more tear that you are going to shed and it will be the tear of joy! (Amen!)

Anyway so this woman lost 10 years and almost immediately God spoke again and said there is someone here  that the doctors say can never have a baby – get ready for your baby! And nine months later the lady came with her baby. Every impossibility in your life shall become possible in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Now not only has God got everything to make the impossible possible, He is completely unlimited. You cannot limit Him by age, because His name is ‘I AM’. Not ‘I WAS’. Not ‘I WILL BE’ but ‘I AM’. The Bible calls Him the ever-present help in times of trouble. The Bible says from everlasting to everlasting you are GodHe is not limited by accident. You will never hear God say circumstances beyond my control didn’t allow me to do what I wanted to do! What circumstances? Where are they coming from? Nothing happens without Him knowing about it before it happens! And He knows the end from the beginning. He is not limited by time or seasons. In John 2:1-11 …

The Lord says there is a family here, a star is going to rise in your family! (Amen!)

I don’t know who  this fellow is but the Lord says there is a fire burbing in your private part. The Lord asked me to tell you, He has put out the fire. (Amen!)

John 2 1-11. The wedding in Cana. They ran out of wine and then the mother of Jesus came to Him and Jesus said, its not time for miracles yet. . But within one hour, the time for miracles had come. He said, Its not yet time! But it became time. For somebody here your time is now!  If you believe that you better say ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord says I should tell someone, He said the shakings in your place of work will soon subside. (Amen!)

Still talking about this God who can do the impossible, there is one beautiful thing about Him. He is unchangeableHebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Meaning what? Whatever He has done before, He will do again. If you have ever heard a testimony similar to the case you are having now, in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ, your own will be the next testimony. (Amen!)

I know there are some women trusting God for the fruit of the womb and they watched those people bringing in the triplets, saying deep within them, “How I wish  I was the one..” You will be the next one! (Amen!)

Not only is He unchangeable, He is no respecter of persons: whatever He has done for A, He will do for B. There is no reason why He won’t do your own. That is why I say, tell your neighbour, tell him one more time – “My own will not be impossible with God! He has done that of others, He will do my own too.” Thank You Father!

The Lord said I should say to somebody, He said your progress had been unusually slow. He said to tell you – things will change from tonight. (Amen!)

So we know with God nothing is impossible because He has the authority, He has the power, He has the resources. He  is unlimited by age. He is unlimited by time and seasons. He’s unlimited by accident or circumstances! And He is constant and He is no respecter of persons. So what do I do so that this God who can do the impossible will do my own? Because I’ve told you  in the past months that information tells you what is available but you have to go a little bit beyond information. You need to move on to revelation. It is revelation that would show you what you must do to get your own part of what is available.

What do I do? What do I do so that the God of impossibilities will make my impossibilities possible? 3 things.

Number one – believe. Just believe. In Mark 9:23 it said, if thou can believe all things – how many things? – all things are possible to him that believeth. If you check the Scriptures again and again, you will find that those people who received a miracle from God, they claimed it by faith. The woman with the issue of blood. Jesus said, “Daughter, thy faith had  made thee whole.” Bartimaeus, Jesus said, “Go, thy faith had made thee whole.” It was then his eyes opened! If only you believe all things are possible to him who believes.

Maybe I just tell you one or two stories. We will be praying now…. Some of you who are old ones you already heard the story before.

I went to Port Harcourt and one man drove me around all the time I was there, with a very big Mercedes Benz car. When they brought me back to the airport for my departure, I can’t give money to somebody with this big car but I want to give something so I gave him some  money. I said, “Please give this to your child.” He took the money and began to say ‘Amen! Amen! Amen!” And I was surprised. What’s wrong?  So I asked the Pastor. “Why is he saying say ‘Amen! Amen! Amen!” The Pastor said, “He has no child.” I said, “Good!” The following year I was back in Port Harcourt! The same man was at the airport to receive me and as I came out of the plane I saw him carrying a gift in his hand. He said, “Sir, this is from my son! Sir, this is from my son!” I said, “Give to your child.” He believed. That very month the wife conceived. 9 months later the first baby boy came!

I’m saying to somebody here today, I say every impossibility in your life will become possible! (Amen!) Your ‘Amen!’ is too casual. (Amen!)

That is one example. I will give you another example that some of you already know too. It was December 31. We were having the Eve programme and the Word of God came, just as it has been coming to you again and again tonight. And I said, there is someone here who is even having problem paying his house rent. I said in the New Year you will be a landlord!  only one messenger in the congregation said ‘Amen! (Amen!) which was humanly impossible for him. But he believed God. He believed that any word coming from the mouth of the servant of the Most High shall come to pass. How it’s going to happen, he didn’t know. But he believed.

The following week, he went to work and went to greet the Chairman, as usual, prostrating, greeting and the Chairman looked at him and said, “By the way, have I given you any Xmas or New Year present?” He said, “No sir.” He said, “Well the Lagos State government was selling some house. I paid for one. I got one, I don’t need it – take it!” And he gave him the address, gave him the keys. He got there, opened the door, he entered. He looked up and down – “This is my house. So I’m now a landlord?” I don’t know how God will do your own but after this Convention, get ready for greatness! (Amen!) I say get ready for greatness! (Amen!)

So he came back to the Chairman. This time he was rolling on the ground. So the Chairman said, “By the way – is there any furniture in the house?” “No sir.” The Chairman said. “I change my furniture every Xmas so the one I used last year, I don’t know where to put it yet so tell so-and-so to take a truck and take the furniture to your house.” He was a messenger but he was sitting on the Chairman’s kind of furniture! Your own testimony will shake the world (Amen!)

If you believe….

Number 2 You must be determined to obey him. Isaiah 1:19 It says if you are willing and obedient you will eat the good of the land.  If you are willing  …. looking at the faces of you and the way some of you have been jumping up and catching the prophecies I know you are willing! But are you willing also to be obedient? when He asks you to witness will you witness? When He asks you to study the Bible will you study? When He asks you to give, will you give? How did you hear about the Holy Ghost Service? Somebody told you. Will you tell others? If you are willing and obedient you will eat the good of the land. The grace to be obedient, receive it now in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Finally  – prayFirst one believe. Second one obey. Third one pray.

In John 14:14 It says if you ask anything in my name I will do it. If you ask what? I didn’t hear you? Some things? It said if you ask anything. Let me tell you the truth. When God says ‘anything’, He means ‘anything’. How great you will become will be determined by how much you are willing to ask for! And there is nothing you can ask for that is too much – nothing! I know! There’s nothing you can ask that is too much.

There are some people who think that the Redeemed Christian Church of God is already … ohh , you are already great!!!! You are doing well! And I tell them: ah-ah we haven’t started!  Ah-ah what’s wrong with you… God asked me to ask for anything: In all towns and villages in the whole world, five minutes distance from one another there’s going to be a branch of the Redeemed Christian Church of God whether the devil likes it  or not. Whether Iraq likes it or Libya does not want it, as long as my God is on His throne and He said, if I ask, if I ask anything, in His Name, that it will be done – that’s already settled!

Are you ready to pray? I can’t hear your answer? I say are you ready to pray? Because if you ask not you will have not. If you want to keep on suffering it’s your own choice. I will tell you just one more story and then we pray. Some of you have heard it before.

We went to Ghana. I was coming back. My children have seen me off at the airport. I’ve emptied my pocket to them because there’ll be a car waiting for me in Nigeria. After my children left Ghana Airways announced that the plane that was supposed to take us to Nigeria will first of all take those going to Sierra Leone before it will come back to pick us. Ahhh! What am I going to do. I was hungry. I wasn’t fasting. There’s no money in my pocket. After some time, it occurred to me that if I suffer it is because I want to suffer. I have a weapon so I issued a decree. I said, “Father, in the mighty name of Jesus, the officials of Ghana Airways will know no peace until I leave here – in Jesus name I ask it.” Five minutes later all the top ogas, the top ogas, came rushing to the  what-do-you-call-it, where you sit down before you board the plane. “Where are those of you going to Nigeria, I said we are here? Has anybody given you anything to eat?” I said, “No.” They said, “We have no food except cakes.” Ahhh! half bread is better than nothing. So they gave us a slice of cake each and a bottle of coke. Because I was hungry the thing disappeared quickly and all of a sudden their leader looked at me and said, “You want more?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “There’s only one slice of cake left.” He gave it to me and another bottle of coke and I sent the two down quick! Suddenly they announced: Those of you going to Nigeria,  you will go first! I said,  “Uhh-uhh, now you want to rest!”

Today you are going to pray. Part of your prayers should be, whatever will not let me reach my goal, Father destroy! Let us stand on our feet. Let me first of all hear you shout a big Alleluia! (Alleluia!) and then open your mouth, – You are going to open your mouth and pray but before you pray, now those who were carried in, just move them a little forward from where they are seated because the senior Pastors will come and minister to them now. The rest of us we’re going to be praying. we are not going to make you a spectacle. So just move them a little forward from where they are seated. That’s enough! That’s enough! That’s enough! Just move forward a little. Today is your day too. If only you can believe. Please brethren, the senior Pastors, just about a dozen or so of them, so you please go and minister to them.

The rest of us let’s lift our voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, whatever will not let me reach my goal, destroy it tonight in Jesus  Name Open your mouth and pray! …….. Blessed be Your Holy Name!  In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now you lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, increase my faith! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! Increase my faith! Increase my faith!……. Blessed be Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now the next prayer, if I were you I would pray it with all my heart: Lift your voice to God and say, Father, do the impossible in my life tonight.. Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! Father, do the impossible in my life tonight…….. Glory be to God! Do the impossible in my life tonight Thank You Jesus! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And then with all your heart…… just for your information the miracles are already going on there… Don’t let that take your eye off your own prayers, just concentrate on your own. Lift your voice to the Almighty and say, Father, make my greatness unlimited!. Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God!

Elders, some of the elders should please go there and join the ministration. We need more hands…

Lord Make my greatness unlimited, make my greatness unlimited.  Make my greatness unlimited. In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now I want you now to bring your own individual prayers – and whatever you want God to do for you  talk to Him about it now. God is here. Go ahead talk to Him, Talk to Him! Talk to Him now……… God is here. Go ahead talk to Him, Talk to Him! Talk to Him now….. Thank You Lord! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Even after this service keep on praying because if you ask you will receive. I’m going to pray for you now and I want you to release your faith as I pray. In the mighty name of Jesus! (Amen!) Father, I just want to thank You for all the great things you have already done tonight. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Every yoke that you had destroyed here tonight let them remain forever destroyed in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Every impossibility that You had made possible tonight Father, let it be permanent in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)   I commit everyone here into Your hands, lay Your mighty hands on every one of them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)  Let Your anointing go right through their bodies in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Fill every cell every tissue in their bodies with life now in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Anything that had not been repaired, repair it now in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

All those who had been saying, Oh, if only the GO can pray for me! Father, I pray for them now. Let them receive their miracles in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Let them receive their miracles in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Let them receive their miracles now in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Make every impossibility, possible in their lives right now in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) From today, all those who are here, don’t let them weep again in Jesus  Name! Change their sorrow to joy in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Even before the sun rises let them have testimonies in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You my Father Glory be to Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Well let’s give the Lord a big round of applause….. I hope there are still enough Pastors there ministering to those people. You may need to give them a second touch to make sure that their miracle is complete. Now it is our custom after a wonderful night like this to say thank you to Jesus. How many of you will love to say thank you  to Jesus? So we are going to give our thanksgiving offering to the Almighty.

Father, 8 is the number of resurrection. It’s the number of new beginning. All these your children, give them a new beginning of  joy! (Amen!) Give them a new beginning of success! (Amen!) Give them a new beginning of success! (Amen!) Give them new miracles. Give them new testimonies! Give them new breakthroughs! Give them new anointing! Give them new desire to serve you! All the days of their lives let it be well with them! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Finally, there are always some people we can pray that special prayer for. … it seems to be everybody again: Father , in the mighty name of Jesus (Amen!) You said it would be unto us according to our faith. These people believe that their seed must be a special prayer for them. Now as I’m praying Father, let it be to them according to their faith in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Whatever it is they need that will make their joy full, give unto them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) grant their request today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). very soon let them be full of testimonies (Amen!) Father, bless the offerings of Your children. Use it for your glory and  where this is coming from let there be a hundred-fold return (Amen!) For those who have to go now, grant them journey mercies in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) for those of us who are waiting for the rest of the programme, increase our blessings in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You for everything You have already done In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen!

AMEN

Brethren, many-a- times there are unseen forces that lay a siege against an individual. At times they lay a siege against your health. At times they lay a siege against your womb. At times they lay a siege against your finances. Lift your voice to the Almighty God and say, Father! Every siege against me, against my family, against my finances, against my ministry – every siege against me! Let them be over today! Talk to the Almighty God!

Jeremiah 33:22 Tonight we want to talk about anointing for fruitfulness and multiplication. By the grace of God, next month we’ll be talking about anointing for dominion.

Jeremiah 33:22   As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me. 

(Amen!) The Almighty God said, As the hosts of heaven can not be numbered and the sand by the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my son and the seed of the Levites that minister to me…… (Amen!) I’m happy that at least somebody got that one! The Almighty God! who anointed David for greatness also said, I will multiply his seed. That tells you straight away that there is a link between multiplication and greatness. That’s why I know for sure because there are people here tonight whose greatness is unlimited, their multiplication also will be unlimited. (Amen!) When God anointed David and said, ” You are going to be great.”, very quickly he changed from a shepherd boy to a king because that anointing is also there for multiplication. We discovered that within a very short time, David, who was a lonely man in 1 Samuel 16, by the time we got to 1 Samuel 22:1-2 the same David had become captain over 400 men. Okay the 400 men are men in trouble but he was captain over 400. Somebody who had been a lonely fellow for years, to suddenly now become the commander of 400 people that was not a minor promotion. And there is somebody here tonight, very soon, they too will be commanding at least 400 people. (Amen!)

By the time we got to 1 Samuel 30, if you read verses, 9, 18 and 19 the same David had become captain over 600 men and these 600 men were now married with children. So he had become captain over a really small army, within a very short period of time. There is somebody here too – your promotion will be rapid! (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord says there’s someone here, your stomach problem started as a joke but it is no longer funny. The Lord asked me to tell you, everything is okay tonight. (Amen!)

By the time we got to 2 Samuel 2:4 this same lonely man David has become the king over the tribe of Judah. The whole tribe called him king! By the time we got to 2 Samuel 5:3 he has become the king of a whole nation consisting of 12 tribes.

I want to prophesy to someone here today, very soon, a whole nation will call you captain. Why? In the same Jeremiah 33:20-21 ..

Oh! The Lord said there is a lady here tonight, He said I should just tell you… the next sleep with your husband is it! (Amen!)

I rejoice with whoever that one is. I rejoice with you. Glory be to God! O Thank You Father!

This God said in Jeremiah 33:20-21

Thus saith the Lord; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season; Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers.

God says, I am a covenant-keeping God! As long as there would be day and night, He said my covenant would not be broken! I have good news for somebody here tonight, God will keep His covenant concerning you. (Amen!)

Somebody may say but that is covenant with David. I’m different. Well, maybe you are. You might not be related to David but you are related to Abraham because if you are a true child of God, you are the seed of Abraham and there is yet another covenant with Abraham. And it’s a covenant of multiplication. In Genesis 12:1-3 the Almighty God! said, Abraham I will make of thee a great nation. God said I will turn one man to a nation! And there is somebody here tonight, you are not going to die until you had become a nation because you will see your children’s children to several generations! (Amen!)

But then in Genesis 17:1-2 God said to the same Abraham, I will make my covenant between thee and me and will multiply thee exceedingly. That is the covenant between God and Abraham – exceeding multiplication! Multiplication that people will look at and say, How can this be! That will be your portion in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)! Because according to Galatians 3:13-14 the Bible says because Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, it is now settled that the blessing of Abraham can come upon us Gentiles. So you can lay your hand on your own chest and say, Abraham’s blessings are mine. Any covenant that God made with Abraham, He made with me!

Now how was God going to bring about the multiplication of Abraham…?

Thank You Father! The Lord said that there is someone here tonight; He said if you will truly make Me your senior partner I will give your business wings to fly! (Amen!) If you will make me truly your senior partner..

In Genesis 22:15-18 the Almighty God! said to Abraham, He said, By myself have I sworn ….That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed …. Abraham, you’ll be blessed! But it is your seed that I’m going to multiply and there are seeds of Abraham here tonight. Is anyone here of the seed of Abraham? (Amen!) …

God said to Abraham, Abraham, you, I will bless but it is your seed I am going to multiply. Adeboye is of the seed of Abraham therefore Adeboye shall be multiplied! If you are one of those who shall be multiplied let me hear you shout, Amen!” (Amen!)

Again, one day, as the children of Israel were on their way to the Promised Land, they offended God and God said, “I will wipe you out!” and Moses said, “God have You forgotten Your covenant, the covenant with Abraham that You are going to multiply his seed?” Read it, it’s in Exodus 32:11-14 The Bible said, when God heard this plea of Moses, when Moses reminded Him of this covenant, the Bible said, God repented. That’s a powerful word because the Bible says God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent! When He was reminded of this covenant, He repented! Because of the covenant that God had with Abraham! Even if it has been written that you are going to die barren, that thing that had been written will be unwritten tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)!

Because He is a covenant-keeping God, as many of you who have truly given your life to Jesus Christ, one way or another this is going to be your month!

The Lord said there’s someone here, we are talking about fruitfulness he’s talking about other things. He said, they have said to you that you will see sand and call it money, the Lord asked me to tell you, wherever you are, I will surprise them! I will surprise them! (Amen!)

Now there is a link between greatness and multiplication, there is a link between fruitfulness and multiplication. Genesis 1:28 the Lord says to Adam and Eve, Be fruitful and multiply. Be fruitful and multiply. Now, I have told many of my daughters who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, that ‘be fruitful’ can be an advise. God will be saying to you, be fruitful and multiply so you don’t become extinct, or it could be a plea, God might be saying, Help me now, I don’t want to begin creating man all over again, Be fruitful and multiply. But I don’t believe it is either of the two because my God is not a beggar, He is the Commander-in-Chief of the Hosts of heaven. I believe it is a command. I believe He is commanding: Be fruitful and multiply.

So I want you to do something straight away. If you are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, you are going to lay your hand on your womb. If your brain had been failing exams you lay your hand on your head. If you cannot succeed in any business; you’ve been having one problem or other financially, you are going to put your hands together and you are going to command: You are going to say to your womb, if it is your womb, womb, I’m not begging you, I’m commanding you, you must obey God – Be fruitful and multiply! If it is your brain that is not functioning properly, you will lay your hand on that head and say, Head, I command you, Be fruitful and multiply. If your hand has not been bringing in money, you will hold those hands together and command, Be fruitful and multiply! Do that for one minute and do it with faith! Raise your voice! Be fruitful and multiply! Be fruitful! Be fruitful! Command your hands! I command you in the name of the Almighty God! Be fruitful and multiply! Thank You Father! So shall it be in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Now if you take Be fruitful and multiply as a command from God, then you should know one thing straight away – that God will never ask you to do something you cannot do. Never! He won’t ask you to do what you cannot do. He won’t ask you to carry an elephant; He knows you are not built to do that. So when He asks you to be fruitful it means the power to do that is in you. And that power is going to come forth tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Everything God created He put within them the power to be fruitful and to multiply. Everything He created! When a child is born and it’s a boy, the ability to become a father is already inside that boy. When a girl is born, the power to become a mother is already inside. The girl doesn’t grow to a certain age and then go to the supermarket to go and buy breasts! No, no, no, it is already inside her. As she grows, at the right time, the breasts will come forward. For those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, in the mighty name of Jesus, by the next Convention, you will come forward with your children (Amen!)

When you have firewood. Inside that thing called firewood is the power to become fire. It is ordinary wood but inside the wood is the ability to become fire. But the wood will only become fire after it has tasted fire. That is where anointing comes in. Today, all the power of God that lays hidden within will come forward as they taste the anointing in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

For example, Peter was told in Luke 5:1-11 that he was going to become a fisher of men. The moment Jesus said so, the power to become a world evangelist was deposited in Peter. But that power remained hidden until the day of Pentecost when fire fell and sat on the head of Peter. The fire within caught fire. Today the power of the Almighty God is going to come down and all the ability that had lain hidden within you will come forward. When the fire within Peter caught, he preached one single sermon but he won 3,000 souls! From that time on he kept multiplying, multiplying, multiplying  ….. That’s why I know that tonight is going to mark the beginning of the multiplication of somebody here. (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord says there is someone here,, today they call you barren, but your fruits shall be many.

In the same manner, Abraham was told, Genesis 17:5-16. God said to Abraham and to Sarah, you are going to become parents to nations. And the moment God said that, the potential, the ability to become father and mother of nations was deposited in them. Though they remained barren for some time. Genesis 18:1-14 They had the visitor, the one who can anoint; the great Anointer, visited them and suddenly, those who had been barren became fruitful. I don’t know who I’m talking to but I know there is someone here – tonight is your night. (Amen!) When they lay hands on you tonight, its not going to be ordinary hands. The great Anointer is going to lay His hands on your head and all of a sudden every power that lay hidden within you will come alive in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord says there’s someone here, He says you are practically on the ground now but I have sent a ladder that you can begin to climb now, you can begin to climb now, you can begin to climb now. Glory be to God!

There’s a great link between fruitfulness and anointing because like we said when we were praying there is someone who opens and no man can shut, whether it is the womb of a woman as we read inGenesis 39….

Thank You Father! … You know, many-a-time when the minister is ministering and he hears messages from God he begins to share it with the people. Once in a while he wants to hear concerning himself. I believe what God has said now is for me but maybe there might be one or two people who will share it because what the Lord said is, I will protect you and the nation that I have given you until it is accomplished. So I think you want to rejoice with me because that’s my own! I want somebody to shout a big Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

We are talking about somebody who has a key that can open the womb of a woman. Genesis 31: .. It says because God saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb and she began to bring forth babies like a rabbit. The husband didn’t like her so the husband visited her only once in a long while. But each time the husband visited, it became a baby! All those who say you will not be fruitful – God will surprise them Matthew 3:9 says that God can open the womb of a stone; it said God, out of stones can raise up children. Your womb is not even stone – if God can bring children out of stone, your own will not be impossible with God.

And then this person who has the key, who can open and no man can shut also says he’s the one who can open the windows of heaven. In Malachi 3:10 He said if you bring all the tithes into my storehouse, that there be food in my house. He said, I will open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that there will not be enough room to receive. But I can go to Him and say, Lord, thank You very much. I am not even asking for financial breakthrough now, I’m only asking for children. The Bible says, children are a heritage of the Lord. I know You can open the windows of heaven and pour in a blessing, just send me children from the throne room of heaven – so shall it be done tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

So we need anointing to produce fruitfulness and fruitfulness will lead to multiplication. Now anointing comes in 3 basic ways: Luke 1 Let us read verses 34 and 35. An angel had come and spoken to a lady about having a child even though she hasn’t got a husband.

And said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee…

You are already seeing there how anointing comes. The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee. Anointing by contact. The power of the highest shall overshadow thee.. … that is anointing by covering. And then the angel said…. that’s anointing by pronouncement. That’s why when we talk about anointing, there can be anointing by laying of hands. Anointing can come by being sent to you and anointing can come by pronouncement. If it comes out and you receive it the miracles will begin. But let’s look at these in detail.

Anointing by contact: In Acts 3:1-8 we find the man who was born lame at the beautiful gate and Peter held him by the hand and he began to walk. Do you know that that man could have died barren but for that anointing that came in contact with him. He was a man but he was lame so he had no wife and therefore would never have children. But when the anointed hand of Peter touched him the siege on his fruitfulness was dismissed and I can guarantee you that when everybody saw him, jumping, leaping and praising God, he became the talk of the town! I’m sure it wasn’t long before he got married and what was already in him began to come forth. It was in him to be great but he would have died a beggar until that anointing came. Whatever in you that is good, that had been lying in you, today as the hand of God touch you, it will come forward in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord said that the fellow concerned will understand, He said, who said it is too late? Certainly not me, the Almighty! Who said it is too late? So if you are the one already thinking it is too late, The Almighty God said, I am not the One who said it is too late. Which means there is good news for somebody here tonight. As far as I am concerned, I know it is not too late for me to be great.

In Acts 9:10-22 we saw a man called Saul of Tarsus. He was a murderer, he hated Christians, but in him was greatness. Somebody who was going to become so great that 2000 years after he died, we are still taking about him but he needed Ananias to lay his hands on him so the greatness in him can come forth. There are people here tonight that God can use to perform miracles. It is in them but they don’t know, But tonight as hands are laid on you, suddenly the power to do mighty things for God will come forth in Jesus Name! (Amen!)

Then there is anointing by covering. In Genesis 1:1-3 the Bible says in the beginning God made heaven and earth and the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep. But the spirit of God moved… Bible scholars say the word ‘moved’ there is the same thing as the spirit of God brooded just as a hen broods over its eggs. For an egg to become a chicken the hen must brood over it, cover it up. Tonight the Holy Spirit is going to cover someone and what is hidden within you will burst forth in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Because after the Holy Spirit moved upon the face of the earth, that was when God said “Let there be light” And there was light! The light that is hidden within you will come forth tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)

When we talk about the Holy Spirit covering, this is necessary particularly when God wants to reverse the irreversible. When He wanted to make dry bones live, He asked the wind to blow on the dry bones. When God wants to make someone who is already past the age of fruit bearing to bear fruit He asks the Holy Spirit to cover the fellow. That’s why the Bible says in Psalm 92:13-14, it said they that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish. They shall bring forth fruit in old age! Even when they are already old they will still be producing. Why? Because Psalm 91:1 says: He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty ….. under the shadow, shadow…the shadow of the Almighty God is going to cover somebody here tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) So anointing comes by covering. That’s why once in a while God will say, anoint the handkerchiefs of my people. The power goes into the handkerchief and then you lay the handkerchief on your head and you get a covering of the Holy Spirit. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, the shadow of the most High, the shadow of the Almighty is going to cover some people here. (Amen!)

And then thirdly there is anointing by pronouncementPsalm 107:20. It said, He sent his word, and He healed them … He sent His Word and He healed them! I was reminding my senior pastors yesterday at a meeting, the importance of pronouncements. I told them the story that they all knew. I just reminded them. We went to Eket to dedicate a church, in May this year. Inside the church was a man who had had stroke. He was sitting down there. I don’t know how he got in, whether they carried him in or not but he was in there. And as I took the microphone, I just said, there is someone here who will never weep again.” And the man said, “Amen!” He received it, he believed it was meant for him. Now within five minutes, every sign of stroke had left him! Within 5 minutes!

That’s why I’m saying tonight, there is somebody here too, who will never weep again. (Amen!) I say there is somebody here tonight…and it’s everybody, I said there is somebody here tonight who will never weep again. If it is only because of the pronouncements that you come to the Holy Ghost Service that’s enough because the elders will tell you. Little blessing, little curses – I prefer the blessing. If I can just get one little blessing after the other, they will add up and if you here all the pronouncements that had been going out to you since this evening began, at least you know now without any doubt that God loves you! And that because God loves you, your enemies can never succeed over you (Amen!) that no weapon that is fashioned against you will prosper! (Amen!) That if they rise up against you, they will be scattered. (Amen!) That every Red Sea ahead of you will be open. (Amen!)

Anointing by pronouncement, why is it so powerful? Because Isaiah 55:10-11, God said, My Word shall not return to me void. It will accomplish that which I have sent it to do. Jeremiah 1:12 God said, I hasten my word to perform it… I hasten…… there is tremendous power in the spoken word. I can send all of you home now by saying the wrong thing. I can say something that will annoy all of you so much that you will just go home and I can say something that will make your joy full – just by saying so – there is power in the word…..

Let me give you one little testimony quickly just to show you the power in the word.  A sister came to us and said, I don’t know how it happened, my husband had left me with four children and is now living with a woman who had had five children for five husbands. So I said, No problem, let’s pray. He will come and beg you to take him back. “Ah, I’m not asking him to beg me, just let him come back!” No, no, no, Let’s pray. We prayed a simple prayer and I asked God to start a quarrel between this man and this strange woman that nobody would ever be able to resolve. And how did God do it? When the quarrel started, the woman said, the strange woman said, Useless man! If you are not useless, how can you leave your wife with four children and come and live with me with five children. Useless man!” That’s all she said. And the man said, “That is true! I must be a useless man, to be staying with somebody who has five children for five husbands. So he packed his load. He didn’t wait till the following day, and came knocking at the door. My dear, He was on his face, he prostrated! “Just have mercy on me. Something must have been wrong with my head. But my head is correct now.”Those of you who have strangers trying to steal your husband, I make a pronouncement now: The Almighty God will start a quarrel between the strange woman and your husband (Amen!) that nobody would be able to settle. (Amen!)

But I’m trying to illustrate the power in the spoken word because that woman said, “Useless man”, their quarrel was never settled. When the word comes out there is power behind it and the one that is coming to somebody tonight is that whether the enemy likes it or not you are going to be fruitful. (Amen!)

Consider Genesis 27:26-33

Thank You Father! God said there is somebody here, and I’m sure I am that one, you have just become a target for my miracles. (Amen!)

I receive that one. Target for miracles. I’m going to write that one and put it where I can see it every day. I have become a target for God’s miracles. Whether the enemy likes it or not Adeboye is now a target for God’s miracles!

Isaac made a pronouncement on Jacob. He said, Oh your brother will serve you. And it wasn’t long before Jacob became Israel. He became a whole nation. I want to pronounce to somebody here tonight – God will multiply you! (Amen!)

Now let me round up this first session. There is anointing here tonight, but how do we get anointing to be effective? Hebrews 1:9 It said, because you love righteousness and hate iniquity for God, even God has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows. God wants to do something special, something awesome tonight. His anointing is flowing like a river but then sin can be an insulator, may not allow anointing to flow. I’ve always explained it that anointing is heavenly electricity. And electricity flows in wire but if you wrap a little rubber around the wire a child may play with it without anything happening to the child. That rubber is called an insulator. Sin can be an insulator. Isaiah 59:1-2, it said the hand of God is not shortened, his ears are not heavy, that he cannot hear: It said that your sin has separated between you and your God! So if you want His anointing to be effective upon you tonight, you have to make up your mind to forsake the ways of sin.

Deuteronomy 7:12-13 It said, if you will obey Him, He will love you, He will bless you and He will multiply you – if you will obey Him! Deuteronomy 8:1, It says you are to obey all His commandments, it said then you will live and God will multiply you. Deuteronomy 13:17, it said let there be no accursed thing in your hand, then will God show you mercy and multiply you. If you are stealing from God, stealing His tithes, stealing His offerings, then it means you have the accursed thing in your hands. It said, Stop it, stop it, stop it – then God will show you mercy, will multiply you.Deuteronomy 30:7-10 It said if you are backslidden, return to the Lord and He will rejoice over you for good and then He will multiply you! It didn’t stop there, and then He will put curses on your enemies. He will put curses on those who hate and persecute you. So He said if you have gone away from the Lord, come back and He will rejoice and say, Let me multiply him! And then He will fight all your enemies. Brethren, Deuteronomy 30:13-19 God says, the choice is yours. Either you choose to obey Him so you can live and multiply or you can disobey him, continue to live a life of sin and face the consequences. It is in the power of the Almighty God to make everybody fruitful, whether physically, concerning the fruit  of the womb or materially, concerning the fruit of your labour – that you work and you have fruit from your labour, or mentally, that you study and you succeed in your studies or ministerially, that you preach and  you win souls and the souls abide! God has the power to make everybody fruitful and to make everybody multiply, if you are willing to obey him but the choice is yours. If you remain in sin you cannot expect grace to abound. The choice is yours. But I am confident that you will choose right today because this is going to be the day of multiplication so if there is any one here, before we continue with the programme, who is not yet surrendered to Jesus, who up till this moment is still living in sin, that you want to forsake your ways of sin and you want the Almighty God! to save your soul, you can come now and surrender your life to Him. He will receive you and save your soul. And if there’s somebody here today who’s backslidden and you want to return to the Lord, the Lord is also willing to welcome you but the choice is yours! So if you want to give your life to Jesus or you are a backslider and you want to come back home. Come now. I’m going to count up to ten. If you are not here by ten I will know you don’t want to come. I will know you have decided not to come.

So 1 now … if you want to give your life to Jesus, if you want to forsake the way of sin, if you want to begin to live a life of holiness, if you want God to forgive you and be merciful unto you, come now 2…. 3….  Sin is the insulator, which can prevent the anointing from destroying the yokes in your life. The Blood of Jesus cleanses from all sins, come and wash in the blood now! 4… 5….. God can reverse the irreversible. As far as God is concerned, it is not too late for you yet but you have to come and surrender your life to Him 6…. 7….. the Gates of mercy are still open but there is a time limit…. 8 now…. If you want to surrender your life to Jesus and you are on the way, you better hurry up. If you have not made up your mind yet, this is the final call. You better decide now! Come and give your life to Jesus Christ He is the lover of your soul. He loves you. He died for you. He is willing to forgive you. He is willing to open a way where there was no way before and when He opens no man can shut and when He opens the door for any man, miracles will begin to come forth. 9 now. If you know you are still coming you have to run now. Those of you in front, begin to talk to Almighty God and ask God to please have mercy on us, forgive all your sins and save your soul, open your mouth and cry to God. The rest of us brethren let’s stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them that the One who saved our own souls will save their souls also. Let’s pray for them, that the Almighty Saviour will save the souls of these people also.

And those of you still on the way you need to hurry up now. Those of you in front open your mouth and talk to the Almighty God! If you really mean business open your mouth, talk to the Almighty God!! Ask Him to save your soul! Ask Him to forgive your sins! Ask Him to be merciful unto you! Ask Him to cleanse you from all your sins! Open your mouth, talk to the Almighty God!! Saviour!  Save my soul, forgive all my sins; I will live the rest of my life for You! Have mercy on me O Lord! Have mercy on me! Become my Saviour, become my Lord today. Forgive all my sins., don’t let any attain block Your anointing from my life! Talk to the Almighty God! Ask Him to be merciful, ask Him to be merciful to you. Ask the Almighty God! to be merciful to you tonight Ask Him to be merciful unto you tonight! Father, be merciful, forgive me, save my soul! Cleanse me from all my sins in Your mighty blood. Those of you still on the way, hurry up now we are about to pray! Saviour save my soul! Have mercy on me O Lord! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me Almighty God!! Have mercy on me King of Glory! Have mercy on me O Lord! Have mercy on me Almighty God!! Save my soul tonight and I will serve You for the rest of my life. In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Father, I want to thank You for Your word. I want to thank You for Your people who have heard Your Word and have decided to surrender their lives to You. Father, please remember Your promise, that whosoever will come unto You, You will in no wise cast out. These people have come to You now. Father receive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Forgive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Cleanse them in Your Blood in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Save their souls Lord and write their names in the Book of Life  (Amen!) Father, anything that can stand between them and your anointing, Father put it under Your blood (Amen!) Beginning from tonight when they cry to you answer them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen! Praise the Lord! (Alleluia!) Those of you in front let me hear you shout your big Alleluia! (Alleluia!) I rejoice with you because heaven is rejoicing over you right now and all the people here are also rejoicing. I want to make a promise. God helping me, from tonight I’ll be praying for you. That’s why I need your name, you address and your prayer request. There are some pastors who are waiting to help me collect this information and then they will give it to me and I will continue to pray for you so if you will turn this way now, there is somebody who is waving a piece of wood, you follow him, he will take you to where the pastors are waiting. You come back very quickly. You can begin to go now. Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause…….

Alleluia! Let’s stand on our feet now and pray one or two short prayers. First of all let me hear somebody shout a big Alleluia! (Alleluia!). As soon as we finish the prayer, as we go into the time of offering, those who have testimonies to give will please see the pastors behind the altar.

We want to tell God that anything that would block my way tonight, that won’t let Your anointing reach me – Father, put it under Your Blood. Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty! … Anything that can come my way tonight that will not allow Your anointing to reach me, Father put it under Your blood. Put it under the Blood of Jesus!

And now we want to pray for those who were born in the month of September. So the rest of us may sit but those of us who were born in September should stand. In the mighty Name of Jesus! (Amen!) We want to thank You because the month of September is a very special month. It’s the month that reminds us that an old year is about to end and a new year is bout to begin. Therefore concerning all these your children, let all their problems end today! (Amen!) let all their sorrows end today! (Amen!) And Father, let their new joy begin today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Let their new successes begin today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Let their journey to unlimited greatness begin today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Let their fruitfulness and multiplication begin today in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). In all areas of your lives it will be well with you (Amen!) God will bless you. (Amen!) He will prosper you. (Amen!) He will promote you (Amen!) He will defend you, (Amen!) Your joy will never end (Amen!) In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen! Children of September shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) If you know what is about to happen to you your ‘Alleluia’ will be louder.

In the year 1979 a group of us went to Tulsa in Oklahoma to attend a programme organised by a man called Kenneth Hagin. It was the first time I saw miracles happening through the hands of this man of God and I wanted what he had. One way or the other we were able to see him. When we saw him he asked us what we wanted. One of the people said we want permission to take your books to Nigeria and sell. Another one said I want permission to distribute your magazines but I will charge the people a little amount for postage and so on. He said, Okay see my secretary they will arrange. So he turned to me and said, What do you want. I said, I want you to lay your hands on me. He said, Are you sure? I said, That’s all I want. Because I know that there is something in me, there’s a seed that God has planted in me waiting for a touch, something that will bring it out. And when I saw this man I said, this man, if he touches me that thing will come out. As Ananias laid his hand on Saul and all of a sudden Saul became Paul, I knew something would happen. Something is about to happen to somebody here tonight. So what we are going to do now since I can’t possibly lay hands on everyone. We’ll do it like the way Jesus did it when he was feeding 5,000 people with 5 loaves and 2 fish  …….

PRAISE THE LORD!

THE SOUND OF ABUNDANCE OF RAIN

3rd of October, 2004

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!)

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 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!)

PRAISE THE LORD!

ANOINTING FOR UNUSUAL VICTORY

6th of November, 2004

Alleluia! …… Blessed be the name of the Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You! Glory be to God! Alleluia! Glory be to God!

3 nights ago the Lord spoke to me and saidFor some of my children the month of November will be the month of solutions. (Amen!) (Amen!) (Amen!) Alleluia! Glory be to God!. We are serving a God we can trust. Last month He told me that it would be the month of answered prayers and I have series of testimonies and I will share one of them with you now to prepare you for this night that you will never forget. (Amen!)

I got a letter in September from a young man who was in serious trouble. He was going to marry in October and then they went for a test and they found that the wife was HIV+. So he said, D, what do I do? He’s from the North. So I said I will be in Abuja for Holy Ghost Service. If you come, we will pray. He came with the sister. We prayed. The sister went for another check up…….  And the AIDS had disappeared. Every prayer that you prayed in October, the answer will surely come. The same God said, for some of my children the month of November will be the month of solutions. (Amen!)

Once upon a time there was a young man who loved the Lord. He was not very rich but he loved the Lord with all that he had. So God decided to bless him. Now since God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform. God got 3 kings together, very wealthy kings and told them, go and attack my boy and when you are going, take plenty of money along, plenty of gold and silver! Go and attack him. So they came. And they told this young man: 3 kings have come to attack you. So he ran to God: Father what have I done that all these problems are surrounding me? And there is somebody here today; all your problems will lead to mighty testimonies! … And God spoke to the young man; You don’t understand what I am doing. You don’t have to fight, all you have to do is praise me! You will see the result. He praised God like nobody had done before. The 3 kings killed themselves and their wealth became the wealth of this young man. There is another Jehoshaphat in the house tonight. (Amen!) The wealth of your enemies are going to be converted to you! (Amen!) The Lord is going to fight your battles for you. You are going to have a victory that nobody can ever, ever, ever, talk again!

God Bless you! Congratulations.

1 Samuel 17:34-37 Tonight we want to talk about anointing for unusual victories. Somebody is going to have unusual victories tonight., One thing I have noticed about God that when a preacher preaches about salvation, people get saved. when a preacher preaches about healing, people get healed. Tonight I am preaching about unusual victories. All the battles in the life of someone will end tonight. (Amen!) I didn’t say in the life of everybody, I said in the life of somebody. I said in the life of somebody the battles will be over tonight. (Amen!).

1 Samuel 17:34-37

    And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock: And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him. Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.  David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the Lord be with thee.

The Lord will be with someone here tonight. (Amen!) David had many enemies; Many unusual enemies. He fought many unusual battles but the anointing of the most High God gave him victory over them all and as we go into the Word of God tonight it will be in your interest to be on your toes because it is likely that some of the battles you have been fighting, David has fought them before. And as God gave David victory, I believe He’s going to give you victory tonight.

The first of David’s enemies was unusual loneliness. You know it is possible to be in the midst of a huge crowd and still be lonely. It’s possible to live in Lagos and be lonely. Oh many of us know what I’m talking about. It’s a lonely life when you are a good cook and there is nobody to eat the food you have cooked. It’s a lonely life when you see something funny and there is nobody to share the laughter with you. It’s a lonely life when you are promoted and there is nobody to celebrate with you. But this month, beginning tonight every form of loneliness will end in Jesus name! (Amen!)

In 1 Samuel 16:11 when Samuel said to Jesse, Are these all your children, the father of David said, It remains one alone in the field. David knew how to be alone. You can imagine his loneliness. The only companions he had were sheep. He can’t share jokes with them. He can’t talk to them and get an answer. They don’t know when he’s hurting. When he has pain, when he’s hungry. They don’t care. He was lonely. But that day, that very day the anointing of God came upon David and he was never alone again till he died. That very day the anointing destroyed the yokes of loneliness permanently in his life. I have good news for somebody here tonight: today is the last time you will be lonely in Jesus name! (Amen!)

The second enemy of David was unusual rejection. Nobody wanted him. Can you imagine? Here is a family with eight boys. There is only one left in the field, alone, unloved. The man of God told the father when he came into town; Call your sons to the sacrifice. The father did not call him. The brothers did not call him. He was rejected. And then in 1 Samuel 17 if you read from 26 to 29 when David got to the battlefront where his father had asked him to go and take food to his brothers, he saw Goliath boasting. He asked the people, What are they going to give to the man who kills this giant. When his brother heard, you know what they said? Who wants you here? Who asked you to come? You should be alone in the fields. I have just brought you food. My father sent me to take it to you. Who wants you here? But then because of the anointing of God, the same fellow who said, Who wants you here? the same day, he stood before the king. There is somebody here today; very soon you’ll be standing before presidents. (Amen!) The family said we don’t want you. Your people may say they don’t need you! But because of the anointing of the most high God, you will not stop before you reach the top. I say you will reach the stop. (Amen!)

When you read 1 Samuel 18:5 the Bible says this same David became accepted in the sight of all Israel. You will be a solution to this nation! (Amen!) Thank You Father!

The Lord said there is a student here tonight, he said you are neither dull nor brilliant. The Lord asked me to tell you, from tonight you will begin to shine. (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord said when I was sharing the testimony about the fellow with HIV, He said there is someone here who was seriously worried. The Lord asked me to tell you, As He solved the problem of that lady, He will solve your own problem also.

Enemy number three was unusual poverty. It is to be understood, the parents don’t want him, the brothers don’t want him. He was alone with the sheep so where is the prosperity going to come from. In fact if you read 1 Samuel 18:4 When David stood before Jonathan. Jonathan looked at him. He saw the way he was dressed. He said, If we are going to be friends, I think I will have to give you my clothes to wear. David was living on hand me down but when the anointing came on him if you read 1 Chronicles 29….

Thank You Father! The  Lord said, somebody danced here very well tonight. He said, I will give you cause to dance more! (Amen!)

You see God was watching you when you were dancing… He said someone danced very well tonight. He said, I will give you more cause to dance! (Amen!)

In 1 Chronicles 29:1-5 After David made provision for the building of the house of God, he made provision that Bible scholars said will be in the billions of dollars for the maintenance of that same house. Not only to build the house but to maintain it for years to come. There is somebody here today you can hardly survive but because you came tonight you will be building churches for God. As you are building for God, God will be building for you. (Amen!)  

Enemy number four was unusual barrenness. If you read 2 Samuel 6:20-23 you will discover that the first wife of David, was the only one we read about in the Bible who died barren. Why? Because she annoyed God. Because she saw David dancing for God and she began to ridicule him! God said all right if you ridicule my son then I will make sure you die barren. But by dying barren she was contributing to barrenness for David but the anointing of God intervened and God promised David, David you will never lack a son to sit on your throne. He said Your kingdom will be forever. There is somebody here today, the enemy thinks you will die barren but because you came tonight, great shall be your children! (Amen!) 

And those of you who already have children, in the mighty Name of Jesus you will never bury any of them. (Amen!)

Enemy number 5…

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is somebody here who loves to sow, the Lord asked me to tell you, keep sowing and as Isaac grew from great to very great so shall you grow from great to very great. (Amen!)

Enemy number 5 – unusual stagnation. Year after year David was a shepherd boy. Years before shepherd boy. Every time somebody said Happy New Year he was a shepherd boy. And since there is nothing like senior shepherd boy or chief shepherd boy, he was just a shepherd boy. There are many of us like that here. Going around in circles every year. Happy New Year! It will meet us where it met us last year. But things will change tonight  (Amen!) – I didn’t say for everybody, I said for somebody – (Amen!) Because the moment the anointing came on David, rapid promotion came. By the time he got to 1 Samuel 22:1-2 he was already captain over 400 men. He was no longer a shepherd boy but captain – of 400! By the time we get to 2 Samuel 2:1-4 he has become the king of Judah. By the time we get to 2 Samuel 5:1-3 He had become the king of Israel and after that one he became the father of kings! Imnj, beginning from tonight  your promotion shall be rapid.

Enemy number 6: parental sins. David said in Posalm 51:5, he said, in sin did my mother conceive me… and Bible scholars say that what he’s telling us here is that he was born out of wedlock. If we are to use the modern language we would say he was born a bastard. The father had a one-night situation with the mother and it became something. David was born. And that explains why the children of the other mother did not want him. If he was the son of their own mother they won’t leave him alone in the field. He was an embarrassment to the father. The father didn’t plan for him to come to the world. But nothing happens by accident with God and in any case whether the father wanted him  or not, God wanted him. Whether your parents like you or they don’t like you, God loves you. Parental sin, which should have even caused major problem for David because God says I am a jealous God, visiting the iniquities of the fathers on children to the third and fourth generation. But thank God the same God said, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy. There is somebody here tonight, God is going to be merciful to you! I say God is going to be merciful to you! (Amen!)

I was preaching once and I told this story. When I read the story of Solomon, I asked God, God I don’t understand. How can You love Solomon because the Bible says, And God loved Solomon. The father was a murderer, an adulterer, the mother an adulteress – the worst type – that caused the death of her husband – how can the product of these two become your favourite Oh God? And God answered me and said, Are you the son of the first wife? I said, No more question O Lord! No more questions!  Somebody is going to receive favour from God tonight!  (Amen!) I say, someone is going to receive favour from God tonight. (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord said, I think God must be really interested in students tonight. He said there is a student here, He said, You have suffered mental black out in exam hall before. He said I should tell you that will never happen again. (Amen!)

The Lord said there is someone here one eye is giving you serious trouble. The Lord asked me to tell you within the next five minutes the trouble will be gone forever.

Now I received this new one…..

The Lord says there is someone here tonight the wind of My Spirit will blow on you tonight. (Amen!) I receive that. Even I say Amen to that one!

Enemy number seven is what I call ‘wrong destiny’…. the kind of destiny that gives you unusual lack of opportunity. They did not even invite David to let the prophet check whether he can be king or not. Do you know there are several beautiful voices that are never heard? When you hear of some great singers in the whole world, there are better singers only nobody ever heard them sing. Do you know there are better footballers in the villages who died, never, never discovered? Do you know that for the grace of God, the education of Pastor Adeboye would have ended in Form 3? Oh! he never came second but by the time he got to Form 3 everything that the parents could sell for school fees had been sold and that would have been the end of his education but for the grace of God! There are brilliant people, who never got to the University, but the anointing came and the boy that would never have even appeared before Samuel was brought by force. Whatever is in you that is good, that is being hidden now, form tonight onwards, God will bring it out! (Amen!) I say God will bring it out! (Amen!) 

Thank You Father! I receive it too. The Lord says when great people gather together, they will call you great! (Amen!) I say ‘Amen’ to that one. When great people gather together, they will look at you and say, you are great. (Amen!)

Enemy number eight – lions! Lions! It told us in the passage we read, I was minding my own business looking after the sheep of my father and then the lion came. If you have studied lions, I have watched them closely on a channel they call Discovery channel – you discover how they kill when they are hunting, They go very softly, They won’t make a noise. They going quietly, getting closer and closer and closer. When they are very close then they roar! The shout will paralyze the animal! Then they jump on the victim and grab it by the throat and choke the animal to death. That’s how the lion kills. Which is why God compares the devil to a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour! The devil is walking quietly until he gets close then he roars trying to grab somebody!

David prayed. He prayed in Psalm 22:21 He said, O God save me from the mouth of lions. I thank God when the anointing came David was able to punch the lion to death. All those who are trying to choke you to death, the anointing of the Almighty God will destroy them tonight! (Amen!) If you have never had a choking feeling, if nobody had ever grabbed you by the throat before you won’t know what it is to feel choked. There are some problems that are choking people; problems so mighty that they are choking you but the anointing of God will destroy the yoke tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Then another thing about the lion is that it jumps upon… Usually it represents problems that come from people who are above you, those that have the power to press you down. All those people who are sitting ion your breakthrough, God will set fire on their buttocks! (Amen!) I still remember very clearly 1992, after our Convention, everybody had gone home and I went for my morning walk, praying, thanking God but as I was returning I suddenly began to feel tired and I wondered, what’s the problem and I got home and I found I was panting. What’s going on I couldn’t breathe; it was as if something was choking me! God what is this? I was still wondering, wondering. And while I was struggling with that they brought somebody who was sick and they asked me to pray for the fellow. But after I prayed for the fellow, suddenly it became clear to me that I’m about to die. I went to my prayer room, took a tape recorder and a blank tape. I said Father, if this is the end, tell me who will succeed me so I can record it on this tape so that Your work can continue. By now I was practically being choked to death and g spoke and said, I’m not the one killing you. Sir it’s not You. Who then? It’s the devil of course. Ah! That’s easy to handle! That one is easy to handle. Every enemy trying to choke you to death, the fire of the Almighty God will consume tonight! (Amen!) Less than one hour, I was completely healthy and running round again. From tonight you will go from strength to strength. (Amen!)

Enemy number nine … Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s somebody here, when the shakings are over you will be promoted. (Amen!)

Enemy number nine – bear. The thing about the bear is that it hugs people to death. A hug is supposed to be a friendly gesture. It’s only people you love that you hug. But in the case of a bear when he hugs you it is to kill. so a bear represents false friends. Those who pretend to be your friends, who are hugging you, smiling at you and they are planning to kill you. And David said in Psalm 41:7-10. He said, they that hate me, whisper together, including my best friend that I trusted. He said, they are saying, now that he’s down he will never rise again. I thank God there is a friend, a true friend, a reliable friend, a faithful friend – who can tell me His Name? Jesus. He’s the one who said when you are going through the river I will go with you, when you are going through fire I will go with you. David said, even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil! For You are with me! There is a friend who says I will never leave you, I will never forsake you and there is an anointing that can expose false friends. Every false friend in your life, before the end of this month, God will expose them all. I say God will expose them all. (Amen!) So you better get ready for surprises.

I’ve told you the story before. There was a friend of mine who was getting married and there were three of us who were close friends, so the other two of us we rushed to his place to get him prepared but the second friend got there before me so when I got there this friend number two was, oh, running up and down, ‘You are welcome Sir, You’re welcome Sir! What are you going to take? Is it coke? Is it tea? Is it…’ And suddenly God spoke and said – He’s lying. He doesn’t like you. If I didn’t know the voice of God I would say, Get thee behind me Satan’. He’s my friend! We’ve slept on the same bed several times. The little money I have, I’ve used it to help him. We’re close friends. God said, ‘He’s lying.’ All your false friends you will discover them this month in Jesus name! (Amen!).

I couldn’t bear it but I kept quiet until the marriage was done and everybody had gone. It remained the three of us and I said to friend number one. I said, I heard the Voice yesterday, talking about friend, about you, that is not my friend. Friend number 2 said, Ah-ah! We asked him. He said, Please sir, please sir forget it, forget it, even myself I said so…’ That was in June. By the December of the same year the same man said, Since you came to the Redeemed Christian Church of God, I have hated you! He said it with his own mouth! And I’ve slept on the same bed with him. He could have killed me if he wanted, if God gave him the opportunity. The God that kept you alive till today, He will expose all your false friends in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Enemy number ten – Goliath, the giant. What does Goliath represent? God is a mountain blocking the way to the new destiny of David because Goliath said in 1 Samuel 17:4-10, he said, Let Israel send one man to come and fight me. If he defeats me all Philistines will become the slave of Israel. If I defeat him the while of Israel will become our slaves. The devil knew that Davis has just been anointed to be king of Israel and Philistine wanted to take that kingdom away through Goliath because Goliath knew there was nobody who could fight him and win.  So he decided to stand there like a mountain to block the way of David to the throne. But thank God there was someone who had been there before the mountains were brought forth. There is someone who can uproot any mountain from the bottom and as the Lord lives, every mountain blocking your way to your destiny, they shall be uprooted tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Now one thing about God is that whenever He removes a mountain there is always nothing left. When He decided to deal with the mountain in the way of Israel. He not only delivered Israel, He drowned Pharaoh and his whole army. All those who said you will not be free, somehow, God will drown them tonight. When He was dealing with the enemies of Moses, the mountains that stood before Moses – Korah, Data, Abiram… they said Moses your ministry is over, this is how far you go – no further. When God decided to deal with that mountain, He asked the ground to open its mouth and swallow the enemies. All those who said that this is how far you will go and no further, if they don’t repent tonight the ground will swallow them! (Amen!) You better get ready for surprises this month.

You probably have heard the testimony of the brother. He was doing very well and for one reason or the other the father just felt that this boy is becoming bigger than I. So he said, this is how far this boy will go. I pray for you fathers: Your children will be greater than you! (Amen!) Any father who didn’t say ‘Amen’ to that one I will say something else. I say your children will be greater than you (Amen!). They fired this person in his place of work. What have I done? They said ‘Nothing, Just go.’ So he came he said , Sir, this is what happened. I said, We will talk to God about it. And then we talked to God and God answered. I remember we were holding the Holy Ghost Service in the old auditorium near the expressway and the Word of God came that there is somebody here, somebody said this is how far you go and you won’t go further. God said, within one week, whoever said so will be sleeping inside the ground. Within one week the father died. Within one week they called the boy back. Within one week they promoted him again. Any mountain saying this is how far you will go and not further, the ground will open its mouth to swallow them today in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here, He said the cloud of death over your family has been dispersed. (Amen!)

When God dealt with the mountain before Joshua, it was not one side of the wall of Jericho that fell. All the four sides fell. And you know what, without my saying so tonight, the praise and worship tonight was excellent because, whether you know it or not, one of the greatest weapons for spiritual warfare, for unusual victory is praise! So let me hear somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!).

When God decided to deal with the mountain before Daniel, In Daniel 6:24 it wasn’t just the people who said they should throw Daniel into the den of lions that God dealt with.  He asked them to come with their families. They were to come with their wives, come with their children! So that there would be no residual mountains.Every mountain before you and their babies and their children – small mountains, big mountains – they re going tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!) 

Thank You Father! All kinds of healing have been going on tonight. All kinds of healings if I were to tell you all of them we would not continue but there is one I must say. God said there is someone here today; He said the mark of hatred that the enemy has put on you has been cancelled. Alleluia!

Enemy number eleven is the father-in-law. Saul himself. 1 Samuel 18:28-29.The Bible said, Saul hated David because God was with David. He didn’t hate David because David offended him! No, he hated David because God was with David. The Bible said in Matthew 10:36 Jesus said, a man’s foes will be those of his own household! This is the biggest problem of all. You are living with them, sleeping with them, eating with them. They say they are your brother, your sister and they see that God is with you, God is prospering you and because of that they hate you! How do we deal with this? Thank God for the almighty. He has a way of changing the evil plans of relatives to good. Joseph said to his brothers, He said you meant it for evil but God turned it round for good. Every evil plan of any relative concerning you shall be changed for good in Jesus name! (Amen!)

Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s someone here tonight, He said before the year is out I will do a new thing in your life. (Amen!)

Enemy number twelve is not just an in-law but a king… The enemy of David was not just an in-law but a king, the ruler of his nation. And Ecclesiastes 8:4 says where the word of the king is there is power, it said, who can say to him, what doest thou? The enemy of David is someone who can kill him openly and no one can query him. But thank God. Ecclesiastes 5:8 says there is someone who is higher than the highest. There is someone who is King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, who is the great Commander-in-Chief of the hosts of heaven; there is someone who is higher than the highest, stronger than the strongest, greater than the greatest and His name is called Jesus! Let me hear you call that name again! Jesus!

You know when God is on your side, he has a funny way of putting those who think they are far, far, far above you to shame. Let me tell you this story, Some of you know it some of you don’t. When we first came to this camp, it must be 1983. Moving from the expressway into this camp was a very difficult problem because there was a little stream across the gutter and we couldn’t park cars on the outside because this used to be the headquarters of armed robbers. So quickly we built a culvert, just a little culvert, we were very poor then. Then the Federal Government came – what have you done? Building a culvert onto the expressway? Remove it immediately. Sorry sir, we can’t do that. If you don’t remove it we will come and remove it. Okay. And then they came. They came with very heavy equipment and they fixed it to this very small culvert and they began to pull! And they began to pull! And they began to pull! They brought equipment that will pull down a mighty bridge within minutes. They pulled and pulled and pulled. And my child began to say, Pull harder! Pull harder! Pull harder! Their truck fell into the gutter. When God plants use there is no human force that can uproot you! Tonight you will be planted by the Lord! No government will be able to uproot you! No enemy will be able to uproot you! Alleluia! 

O Thank You! my Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said very soon you will be widely known as the blessed of the Lord! (Amen!) I say ‘Amen!’ to that one.

Enemy number thirteen – the Philistines. They are the enemy without and they are always there. They are the neighbours of Israel. They are the enemies without that the enemies within want to hand you over to. In 1 Samuel 18:22-27 the Bible says that when king Saul tried to kill David and failed. He tried to wedge him to the wall with javelin 2 times. He failed. He said, I know what I will do. I will hand him over to the Philistines so when he dies nobody will say I’m the one that killed him. He said, Go and tell him, tell him I like him and I want to give him my daughter in marriage. I don’t want any dowry. I just want him to go and cut off the head of some Philistines and bring them. So that the enemy can kill and they won’t say I’m the one who did it. But thank God we serve a God that David said, thou preparest a table before me – where? – In the presence of my enemies. Beginning from this month you will begin to enjoy in the presence of your enemies. (Amen!)

I’m sure you read in the papers some  years ago when some internal enemies of the Alake of Egbaland decided that he had reigned too long. Let’s kill him otherwise he won’t allow somebody else to reign. So they sent for one juju-man from Benin Republic, and he came. … in cooperation with the house help…. He gave him medicine to put in the food, gave him poison to spread on the bed sheet. He did everything. After one week the juju-man said, I want to see kabiyesi. He said, I don’t know what you are using; I don’t know who you are worshipping but that is God that you are worshipping, You better hold onto him because all that I’ve tried – you shouldn’t last 2 days but none of them worked. I am saying to somebody here today: Every weapon fashioned against you shall not prosper. (Amen!) I say they will not prosper! (Amen!) And all the enemies without they will come and bow at your feet. (Amen!)

Enemy number fourteen – the invaders. In 1 Samuel 40:1-6 David was away with his army before he came back some invaders have come, they have cleared everything – wife, children, everything. When David came back with his army and everything was burnt, himself and all the soldiers they wept until they had no strength more to weep. Anything that will cause mighty men to weep that must be serious … there is somebody here tonight you will never weep again! (Amen!) The sorrow was so great that his followers said, Let’s kill him! Let’s stone him to death! It wasn’t his fault but of course whenever anything goes wrong they blame the leader. But thank God, David strengthened himself in the Lord and asked God: God what do I do? Shall I pursue them? And the Almighty God answered and said, “Yes, pursue them! Overtake them and recover all!” Everything that the enemy has stolen from you, before the end of this month you will recover all in Jesus name! (Amen!) You will recover all, (Amen!) you will recover all.. (Amen!)

Let me take enemy number fifteen and then we’ll soon be praying. The only enemy that knocked down David – the flesh. In 2 Samuel 11 – the whole chapter – when prosperity came – all was well, the lonely man was no longer lonely, the rejected man was no longer rejected; the stagnant man has now become the king of the whole of Israel; lion was dead; bear vanquished; the mountain called Goliath had been uprooted; Saul was no more; all was well. Poor David now has become wealthy David. The one who was sleeping on the field with the sheep now is sleeping on comfortable bed in the palace. Instead of going to war, he slept. He slept from morning to evening because he was the king. Then he got up; he went for a stroll. At the wall of his house he saw a woman bathing, beautiful woman! He called his servant: Who is that woman? Oh that’s the wife of Uriah. Oh! Go and bring her! Yes sir, Your Majesty! The wife came. You know the rest of the story. Soon the wife sent back and said, Sir, I am pregnant! Ah! Well we shall do something about it. Send the husband back to me from the battlefront. Yes Your Majesty. ‘Uriah you are welcome! How is the battle? Well all is well. Well eat, drink and go and spend the might with your wife. Uriah said, Your majesty, my Commander is in the field.; the Ark of the Covenant is in the field. I can’t sleep and enjoy like you. You are the king!. I am just a soldier. So David said, Load him with alcohol, when he is drunk he won’t know what he is saying. They loaded him with alcohol but Uriah still remembered.  No, no, no I am a soldier of God, I can’t do that! So David said, All right if we try to do it gently and you don’t want, we’ll do it by force. So he wrote a letter to the Commander and sent it through the hand of Uriah, put the bearer of this letter where the battle is hottest and when the enemy rises up withdraw from him so he can be killed. The Commander read the letter and looked at the bearer and wondered what the poor man had done. Anyway Uriah died. They told the King, the King said, that’s it now l… Lady you can come here now! Your husband is dead. I am the new husband. But God was watching.

One day God sent a servant to go and tell David a story. There was a rich man who had plenty of sheep. There was a poor man who had one little lamb. That’s all he had. He loves the little lamb! Sleeps with the little lamb. Then one day the rich man had a visitor and instead of taking one of his own flock, he took the little lamb of the poor man; used it to entertain his visitors. David said, What? In my Kingdom? That man is dead! The prophet said, Thou art the man! Then he told him the story of Uriah. You think God didn’t see you? God said, you did it in secret but now it is time for judgment.

My brothers and my sisters, God is a good friend when He is on your side, who is the enemy who can stand? The Bible says, if God be for us who can be against us? It said we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. It said, No weapon fashioned against us shall prosper. He said to Israel, look at all the enemies. He said, all the enemies you see tonight you will never see them again! You have killed him there is no way you can even restitute on that. He told David, the sword will never depart from your house. That is why there is no peace in Israel today.

There is one battle you must not lose. It is the battle against the flesh. The flesh wioll tell you not to pray even though the Bible says pray without ceasing. The flesh will tell you not to fast even though the Apostle Paul, said ‘I fasted much.’ The flesh will tell you not to witness even though God says it is when you witness He will answer all your prayers.  The flesh will tell you not to give even though the Bible says it is when you give you will be given. The flesh will tell you, don’t pay your tithes, when the Word of God says if you don’t pay your tithes, you are a robber. The flesh will say don’t surrender to Jesus, when Jesus Christ said unless you are born again you won’t see the kingdom of God. Tonight the anointing of God is here to enable you to say ‘No’ to the flesh. And the anointing of God is here tonight to give you the greatest victory of all – the victory over your flesh! The anointing of God is here tonight to help you to decide to pray without ceasing, to witness like never before, to sow like never before, to give like never before, to pay all your tithes so that God can open the windows of heaven over you; the anointing of God is here tonight to enable you surrender your life to Jesus so if you are here and you have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus or you have surrendered before and you have already gone back into sin, you better come back tonight. Come and surrender your life to Jesus!

This is the last Holy Ghost Service on this Camp before the Congress. In this year of foundations this is the last Holy Ghost Service on this Camp Ground. Whatever you do today will affect the rest of your life. Come and surrender your life to Jesus. Today is the day of salvation. I will count up to 10. If by 10 you are not yet out here I will know that you have decided that no matter how terrible H can be as an enemy you don’t care, that you are going to fight Him and you will see who will win. But come and surrender your life to Jesus now. He will save your soul. He will cleanse you in His Blood and things will change. 1… 2… 3…. 4 … 5….. 6…… 7….. 8 .. The Bible says the wages of sin is death but the gift of life is in Jesus Christ His Son. The Bible says he who conceals his sin shall not prosper but whosever will confess and forsake them will obtain mercy, come and surrender your life to Jesus. Come and confess your sins before Him. Let Him receive you tonight. Let Him forgive you tonight. Let the power of His Blood cleanse you tonight. Come and receive mercy. 9…. This is the final call now. It is God that is calling you not me. He is giving you an opportunity to be saved, an opportunity for things to change, an opportunity for your sins to be gone.

Those who are already in front talk to God now. Say Father, forgive me. Have mercy on me. I have come to surrender my life to you. Save my soul tonight and give me the grace never to sin against you again! Talk to the Almighty God now! Those of you who are already on the way, keep coming! Come and talk to the Almighty God before it is too late. The rest of us let’s stretch our hands towards these people – that He will cleanse them. Pray for these people now! Call on the Almighty God for the salvation of the souls of these people. Those of you who are still on the way, you better hurry up, I’m about to pray for these people now. Those of you in front cry to the Almighty God, God save my soul! Have mercy on me O Lord! Have mercy on me! Save my soul O Lord! Cleanse me in Your Blood! Cleanse me in Your Blood! Cleanse me in Your Blood! Talk to the Almighty God I will serve You O Lord! Please save my soul! Have mercy on me Lord! Have mercy on me today! Have mercy on me Almighty God! Have mercy on me King of Glory! Have mercy on me today! Have mercy on me this very night O Lord! Forgive all my sins and I will serve you for the rest of my life. Call on Him! Open your mouth and talk to the Almighty God: Lord have mercy on me! I don’t want You to fight me, I want you to be my friend! Have mercy on me O Lord! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me! Those of you, who are still on the way, hurry up now. I’m about to pray. Those of you who are coming for salvation hurry up now. Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Father, we want to thank You. We want to thank You for Your Word. We want to thank You for those who have come forward this morning. We want to hank You for Your promise that whosoever will come unto You You will in no wise cast out. These Your children have come to You now. Receive them in Jesus name! (Amen!)! Forgive them in Jesus name! (Amen!)! Save their souls in Jesus name! (Amen!)! Cleanse them in Your Blood in Jesus name! (Amen!) ! Write their names in Your Book in Jesus name! (Amen!)! And the power never to go back into the world, give it to them in Jesus name! (Amen!)! And from now on, fight their battles for them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen!

Those of you in front let me hear you shout Alleluia! I want to rejoice with you. You have taken a very good decision tonight and I want to promise you, God helping me, from now on I will be praying for you so I’m going to need your names, your address –correct address – and your prayer requests. Give me the correct address so that when I ask God to send your miracle it will be sent to the address you put down. Now there are some pastors who are waiting. They want to collect this information from you and then they will bring you back. So if you face this direction there’s a brother there waving a piece of wood, follow him, he will take you to where the Pastors are waiting for you.. Go cheerfully, the Almighty God is already rejoicing over you for this day. Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause for these people.

Now you are going to stand and pray a prayer, say Father, don’t let me be my own enemy, give me victory over my flesh. Don’t let me be my own enemy. Give me victory over my flesh! Let’s talk to the Almighty God! Don’t let me be my own enemy. Give me victory over my flesh! Give me complete victory over my flesh. Don’t let me be my own enemy O Lord!

The anointing that is going to give you unusual victory is heavy here tonight. Those of us who want to be ministered to this is your time. So as the men of God line up as usual and as the choir, who had been wonderful thus far, begin to minister, those of us who want hands laid on us will come and I want you to come this time praying, that Lord even as Your servant will touch me, total victory let it be mine! Come with faith and come praying. And I am already praying that God will quicken the feet of the ministers so that they will be at their posts on time so that the anointing can reach you quickly and the miracles will continue to multiply. God bless you.

Now we want to do something that the spirit of God ministered to me that we should do. In 2 Kings 13 if you read it from verse 13 and on the Bible says when Elisha was sick and was about to do the king came to him and said to him My father, my father, the chariots of Israel and the horsemen thereof. In other words the king was saying Sir, you are the defender of Israel now you are about to go and Elisha said to him take bow and arrow, He took them he laid his hand on his hand,he shot and he said, Oh , that’s the arrow of deliverance. And then he said he should take the arrow and smite the ground. He smote three times and stopped. The Bible said the man of God was angry with him, said you should have done it more than 3 times, I didn’t ask you to stop! He said, because you stopped at three you will win only three victories.

There are certain things in the Bible that are done symbolically – Something you do so that God can do something. You are going to do something tonight. You are going to take the step of victory.. You are going to do what? I didn’t hear you. Ah-ah! So those of you who are in front your own is easy but those of you in the rows you have to get yourself to the aisles. You are going to take some steps today. And as you are taking the steps you will say: victory number 1, victory number 2, Victory number 3! Victory number 4! Victory number 7! Victory number 8! Victory number 9! Victory number 10…  Victory, victory, victory…Then you can turn back now and take more steps back to your seat…victory, upon victory, upon victory, upon victory! Turn back now and begin to take more steps towards your seat! Go ahead, go back to your seat, take more steps back to your seat and begin to praise the Almighty God for victory, upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! Go back to your seats now and begin to praise the Almighty God. Cry His name and begin to thank Him from now on it will be victory, upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! Go back to your seats and take steps of victory as you go back. Glorify God! Begin to thank Him for victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Say Father, I thank You for victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory forevermore! Victory forevermore! Victory forevermore! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Alleluia! If you receive that let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)

If you believe that all your battles are over let me her you shout a big Alleluia!  Alleluia! Now I want you to shake hands with 3 or 4 people and say, Thank God! I have Victory upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! So shall it be in Jesus mighty name.

How many of you agree with me that the band has been wonderful again tonight? I want to appeal to the AGOs to please come and help me lay hands on these children – let’s give them a special hand-laying – they’ve been doing a wonderful job again tonight. Let’s appreciate them by giving them a special touch of the anointing of God. If you appreciate them give them another round of applause, give them another round of applause, give them another round of applause,! They sang so well we all wanted to keep on dancing! Alleluia! Glory be to God! Your anointing will never run dry. O Thank You Jesus! It’s been a wonderful night don’t you think? And there are more blessings yet to come.

Which one is too little for you to praise God about? If it is your child that was kidnapped and they released him by the power of God because God says this one is not for ritual. Will you praise God? If you are the one who’s been blind in one eye but now you can see with two, will you praise God? If it is your daughter whose blood is SS and is now AA will you praise God? If you are the one who has been barren for years and the first time you became pregnant the devil struck again and then God turned your sorrow around into joy….. Brethren will you please give the Lord a big, big round of applause. Will you praise Him, praise the Almighty God? Give Him all glory He deserves to be glorified; He deserves to be praised. Magnify His Holy Name! Thank You Father!

Now before I pray, there are always some people, no matter what God has done, they still feel unless the GO prays for me… So if there are such people let them come now so I can pray for them. I believe God already solved your problem but if you still want to come, come. Enter into a covenant with the Most High God – You do this for me Lord, I will do the following. Solve my problems this month and I will do the following in return. Do it O Lord, I will give you all glory and all honour and all adoration and the world will hear about it and they will praise You with me! Thank You Almighty God.

My Father and my God Your Word says that it will be unto us according to our faith. These Your children have come believing that if I will pray this prayer they will receive their solutions.  (Amen!) Father be merciful unto them. (Amen!) Anything that can stand between them and the miracles they need. Put it under your Blood. (Amen!) Father, honour their faith. (Amen!)

AMEN!

PRAISE THE LORD!

One young man said to God one day, he said, God, I will bless you at all times, your praise shall continually be in my mouth and God looked down from heaven and said, my boy is that so? He said, God, I’ve made up my mind, that’s what I will do.

Save souls, heal the sick, set the captives free. Do marvellous things Lord! Father, we are praying especially for all the children born in December. All children born in the end of the year, end all their sorrows. (Amen!) End all their problems. (Amen!) End all their difficulties. (Amen!) Let them serve you to the end! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let me hear somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Shake hand with your neighbour and say Neighbour! I love you but tonight my miracle will be bigger than yours. If you believe that say ‘Amen!” God bless you! You may be seated!

The number of children born during this Congress at our maternity centre hear has increased to 32 and the girls continue to lead – 19 girls, 13 boys. Don’t worry boys we will catch up. We still have tomorrow. Let the girls shout ‘Praise the Lord!’ (Praise the Lord!) Let the boys shout ‘Alleluia!!’

You may wonder why I’m excited. My Daddy told me before I came out from my prayer room that at least a hundred thousand people would be healed tonight and you will see them with your own eyes. It’s most likely that you will be one of them! If you are going to be one of them let me hear your ‘Amen!’ (Amen!)

Today the joy of somebody will be full. All the harassments of the enemies in your life will end today. I didn’t hear your Amen’ to that (Amen!)

I am delighted to have with us tonight wonderful people that the Almighty has put in charge of governing our States, the Governor of Lagos State who somebody said we should give a new name and I think it will be a good idea. I think we better call him Bola Abrahim Tinubu! .. All who agree say ‘Amen!’ And then our own landlord, the one who shares the name with the one who went into the den of lions and came out alive – let’s put our hands together for our governors. Thank You! And then of course, thank God for the man who has come to represent our President. This is the first time he has been here. This must be a very special man in the sight of God. When miracles are about to happen he is always present. You are welcome sir, God bless you!  we are happy to have you. Take our greetings back to Mr. President. Tell him we are praying. we are praying to God that during his tenure, somehow, the problems of the masses will be over. God will give him the wisdom, courage, the willingness, the enablement to see that that will happen. All who agree say Amen!’ (Amen!)

Once again I want to give glory to God for all great men and women of God that came form all over the world, I love you. Like I said, yesterday, I wish all of you can come and preach. But then it would have taken us a whole year to finish the Congress. If any of you had not been called forward to do anything it is not out of disrespect for your ministry. It is because we know that you are matured enough to know that hose of us who stand here are just your representatives. God will prosper your ministries. It will be well with you.

On Monday we talked about the first Master Key, which is prayer. And this Master Key, big as it is, is  a limited Master Key because it is limited by faith because Mark 11:24 tells us that it is only those things that you believe when you pray that you will get. Which means if you pray and you don’t believe, you have just wasted your time. And then on Tuesday we discussed the second Master Key, which is faith because the Bible says if only you can believe all things are possible to him that believeth. Another big Master Key; but it is also limited because you can only believe what God has promised. It’s only those things, which God promised, for which His promises are yea and Amen, are the only things that He’s committed to perform. So if He did not promise you anything and you begin to believe for it, then you’d be wasting your time.

Not only that, this great Master Key is also limited by love because the Bible says faith worketh by love. On Wednesday we discussed the third Master Key, which is the Word of God, because the Bible says, Forever O Lord thy Word is settled in heaven. A very powerful Master Key; which means that whatever God has said He will do, He will do it! However, this Master Key, powerful as it is, is also limited by whatever your relationship with God is because in 1 Samuel 2:30 God said when He was talking to Eli, I said indeed, I’m the One who said it, that you and your father’s house shall stand before me forever, but now I say, be far from me, He said, because – those who honour Me I will honour and those who despise me will be lightly esteemed. So when we say forever O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven it is subject to the sovereignty of God. He’s the original majesty. He can do whatever He likes. If you don’t honour Him, He can say, I said it but I’m not saying it again! And if He says, I don’t say it again, He can ask you to go and charge Him to court, and then we will see who will be your lawyer, we will see who will be your judge.

And then yesterday we discussed the fourth Master Key, the Name of Jesus. Ohhh! the Bible says, God has given Him a name that is above every other Name, that at the Name of Jesus every knee must bow. Let me hear somebody shout the Name of Jesus! Jesus!! If you shout it loud enough all your sickness will bow you know. Jesus!!!!  Powerful Name, Name above all, above the name of sickness, above the name of cancer, above the name of barrenness, above the name of all your enemies! Let me hear you shout the name one more time. (Jesus!)

But powerful as this Master Key is, it is limited too because it is not for everybody to use. There’s a story in Acts 19:13-17. Some people saw that Paul was using the Name of Jesus to perform some miracles, so they said; well we know the formula now. So they went to a mad man, “Mad man, devil! We command you in the Name of Jesus that Paul preaches come out of this man!” The devil answered, “Jesus I know, Adeboye I know but who are you?” And he grabbed them and beat them! But there is a Master Key that is completely unlimited, that is the Master Key and that’s the one we want to talk about now.

In Romans 8:31 the Bible says, If God be for us, who can be against us? If God be for us ….. If only God can be our Senior Partner! If only God can be our ally! I mean – our problems are over! How do I know? It says who can be against us when God is on our side? God, the Bible says, let God arise and His enemies will scatter!Your enemies will scatter tonight in Jesus Name! But you see when God is for you, all your prayers will be answered. In Isaiah 65:24 it said, even before you call I will answer. God is going to answer somebody here today! (Amen!)

I’ve always told a funny story. My children and I we were going on a programme, which we call going-a-fishing which will be in December, several years ago when we saw a signboard: turkey for sale and I said to my children, Do you know I’ve never had turkey for Christmas?  And we laughed and we left. We were much poorer in those days. By the time we came back, four turkeys were already at home!  Before you call, I will answer. Whose prayer will God answer tonight? If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia (Alleluia!).

Ohhh! Thank You Father! Now the healing had already started and there is a particular fellow here, the Lord says you’ve had this cough for a long time. You’ve spent a lot of money on it without any improvement. The Lord asked me to tell you, Did you notice? Since this evening you have not coughed once.  He said because He has taken that cough away forever.

If God is on our side, our faith will be unshakeable because Psalm 125:1 says They that trust in the Lord shall be like Mount Zion that cannot be removed…. If I know that God is on my side then you understand why my faith will be strong. If God is on our side then our words will be law. Anytime we speak then it will be done! When the Bible says you will decree a thing and it will be established unto you; when the Bible says whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven, its referring to only those who have God on their side! If you don’t have God on your side then even the devil will say, Jesus I know, Adeboye I know also …

Thank You Father! One of the people that God has healed, the Lord said you have been having this horrible itching for some time and it’s always followed by serious weakness. The itching has stopped and it’s not going to return.

The Lord said there’s someone here, you have one more chance to do a very crucial exam. Daddy asked me to tell you, you have already passed. (Amen!)

Daddy said there is someone here, your problem is that you salivate as a woman who is just pregnant. The Lord said you should check now, you should have noticed by now that the salivation has stopped. O Thank You Father!

The Lord said there’s someone here, you’ve been urinating blood for a while. You can quickly check now. That has stopped.

The Lord said there’s someone here, that you are worried that you may die young. I hear God saying, Not at all. Not at all. Not at all.

Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause…

All right. Now if we can have God on our side, our prayers can be answered, our faith will be unshakeable, our word will be law and even the devil will recognize us. The question is, how do I become God’s partner? Amos 3:3 says, in my own language, Birds of the same feather flock together but the way it is put in the Bible is, Can two walk together unless they be agreed? So if you want to be God’s partner the condition is in 1 Peter 1:15-16 It said, Be ye holy for I am holy. That tells you what is the Master Key number five – the unlimited Master Key! It is called holiness. What is it called? Let me hear you say it loud and clear. It is the unlimited Master Key.

Now I’m going to show you very briefly, if the Holy Spirit will allow me because the healing power of God is mighty here. There is someone here for example it is as if pins were stabbing into your eyes. The Lord asked me to tell you that has stopped.

He said there’s someone here, your back is so painful, so stiff, it’s a long time you were able to touch your toes. The Lord asked me to tell you, go ahead touch your toes because you have been healed.

The Lord said there’s someone here, he said I should tell you: you will never have another blackout. Glory be to God!

Holiness guarantees not only healing but health. Exodus 15:26 God says if you will live holy – in other words if you will hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all that He commands you, He will see to it that you are never sick again and I want to prophesy to somebody here today – for the rest of your life you will never know sickness again! (Amen!)

Holiness guarantees not just blessing, but the kind of blessing that is so much that you will be running away from it, it will be pursuing you. ….. I called my assistant who is several years older than myself. I said you are close to heaven, enjoy a little before you go, you can’t backslide anymore He said, You are our leader, if you don’t use it, I will not use it. So I locked up the car and then one night God woke me up, Son why are you denying my daughter her blessings? I will never do that! The car that she bought, it is not bought for you, it is bought for your God and you are disturbing her blessing by not using it! I said, Lord, I will use it so You can bless her! And I used it for 3 days and then I parked it again and I said Lord, I have used it so go ahead bless her. And God said, you better begin to use that one because the second one is coming. And the second one came. It was that kind of car with six doors! And I said to God, You know I can never ride this one – there’s nothing you can say about it! Allow me to sell it! He said, It’s yours now; you can do what you want with it! So I sold it and used the money to buy motorcycles for the Pastors. I didn’t know I was asking for trouble. And one man came one day and brought three Mercedes! What do you want me to do with three?

Suddenly I got the point – God is trying to say something. Father what are you trying to say, this is too much! He said, I’ve not started. I want you to stop it! He said unless you stop living holy. I can’t stop living holy. He said, in that case I can’t stop your blessing! There is somebody here tonight, by this time next year your testimony will be greater than my own. If you are the one let me hear you shout .Amen!.

It says in Deuteronomy 28:1-2, If you will live holy, blessings will be overtaking you! You won’t have to pray for them! You won’t have to struggle for them. You will sit at home and the blessing will be coming!  I wish somebody will say ‘Amen!’ to that. (Amen!)

And then, not only will you have victory. My Bible tells me that your victory will be an unusual one. It says in Deuteronomy 28:7, it says, when enemies rise against you one way, they will flee seven ways. There’s somebody here tonight by the time you get home, all those who ganged up against you, they would have been scattered. I say they would have been scattered!

Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s someone here, it is as if hundreds of ants are crawling all over your body! But they have disappeared now

The Lord said there’s a woman here that wetting is causing problem in your marriage. The Lord asked me to tell you, you will not bed wet again.

The Lord said there’s someone here, your private part is constantly dropping water. He said, if you check, everything is dry now.

The Lord said there’s someone here, you have this unfortunate situation that you are always vomiting in your sleep. When you sleep, you will vomit. He said that has ended.

The Lord said there’s someone here, He said, the noise in your head has disappeared.

The Lord said there’s someone here; He said your neck, which had been shaking, is steady now.

Why don’t you just go ahead and give the Lord a round of applause. Thank You! Alleluia!

If only you live holy you will not only be promoted, your promotion will be an unshakeable one. He said in Deuteronomy 28:13, He said, the Lord will make you the head not the tail. It went on to say you will be above only, not above once – in other words you will never become x- this x- that …

O Thank You Father! The Lord says I will short circuit the remote control of your enemy. Alleluia!

The Lord asked me to tell someone here, He said the fingers of your enemy shall drop off. (Amen!)

He said there’s someone here, that you have a growth in your neck – the doctors have been fearing cancer. The Lord asked me to tell you why don’t you check, the growth has gone. (Amen!)

So holiness guarantees answers to prayers, solid faith, words that will be law, recognition by even the devil, not only healing but health, health that cannot be tampered with, prosperity the kind you don’t have to labour for; victory that is uncommon, and promotion that is unchangeable. All this will be the portion of those who have the Master Key of holiness!

That’s why out of a heart full of love I need to talk to you about the issue of sin. Because if holiness guarantees all these things and sin is the opposite of holiness then sin guarantees certain things – sickness, poverty, sorrow, curses, running from enemies… let me just take some examples from the Scriptures because I am confident that the life of somebody is going to change permanently tonight. (Amen!)

Lets take the example in Mark 2:1-12  

Thank You Father! There was this young man who was paralysed from neck downwards. His friends heard about this and they carried him to where Jesus was. When they got there they found that there was a crowd! There was no way through the door! No way through the window! Thank God they were good friends or they could have abandoned him there like the testimony of the brother we had some time ago. He was lame and his friends brought him to the Congress and they got to about 3 kilometres from here and they saw that people were already seated on the road like they have done today. They dumped him there. From there he looked up to God: God see me o! Abandoned here! That moment the Word of God came out that there was someone, it looks like your friends have deserted you. And immediately he got up and began to run. I don’t know who I’m talking to again, there is somebody here right away, relatives are tired of you, friends are tired of you but your problem is solved tonight.

In any case, they brought this boy to where Jesus was and there was no room at the door so they climbed to the roof; broke the roof and dropped the man at the feet of Jesus! And Jesus looked at what they had done and the first statement He uttered, He said: Thy sins be forgiven thee! That is the first thing that came out of the mouth of Jesus. Look at what this one is telling us. These people had faith. They had the Master Key of prayer they had used it! They had faith, not ordinary faith, mountain-moving faith, roof- tearing faith. The Bible says Jesus saw their faith. They knew the Word – they know it is written – Himself bore all our sicknesses and diseases! They came to the presence of Jesus and the man lay there helpless until the issue of sin was settled.

Let me give you another example Joshua 7:1-12 Israel had just been defeated in a battle, a very small army and Joshua fell on his face and prayed from morning to night on his face. He was a prayer champion, he was a man of great faith, he knew the Word of God, he remembered the promises of God and he was telling God, Lord you promised no man will be able to stand before me all the days of my life – You promised. God said, Yes I promised, but there is sin in the camp. You do something about sin in the Camp or I’m not going with you any more. I’m the One who said I will go with you and I’m the one who says I’m changing my mind because you brought in sin. Sin can truncate a man’s destiny. He later on said to him: Be made whole, Go and sin no more or else something worse like 38 years of sickness will happen.

My brothers and sisters check your lives! God who answers me is a holy God! You want a miracle from Him you must be ready for holiness. I’ll tell you two stories and then we will pray. The stories some of you know.

A woman came when we were still in the auditorium by the expressway. She had been barren for a long time, then she heard what God was doing here. She said they told her, Get to that man. If he lays his hand on you, you’ll become pregnant. The power that will come on you will be so heavy that you will fall. Don’t be afraid. Its just part of the whole process. So she came. We laid hands on her. We didn’t know we just laid hands on her. She fell. The following year she came with accusation – they told me that if I came to you and you prayed for me I would be pregnant! Even that I might fall and I fell! No baby yet! I was going to pray again, when God said, Ask her how many boyfriends she has in addition to her husband. I was afraid because she’s a big lady. Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) I almost stammered when I asked, I’m sorry but God said how many boyfriends….. She said only six. She had a husband and six concubines and she wanted my God to give her a baby!  Who’s going to be the father of the baby? Examine your life tonight; the power of God is here. I’m telling you it is by the special grace of God that I can stand on my feet. God is here right away – Ready to heal, ready to deliver, ready to set free! Don’t let your sin stand before you and your miracle tonight!

Story number two. I’ve told you that God can give you a miracle on credit. Give it to you, expecting you to live holy. They brought this man to the headquarters in Lagos. He was having some very strange diseases in his hand, is out like this like a rod of iron. Both hands, the two legs, he cant bend his legs to kneel down. He can’t bend his elbows, he’s just straight. We prayed. We asked him to give his life to Jesus. He said, Yes I’ve given my life to Jesus. We prayed. Immediately He was able to kneel, he was able to bend the hand. He went home rejoicing. For two weeks we saw him in church singing and dancing. After two weeks we didn’t see him again. We decided to do follow-up. When we saw him, Sir we didn’t see you in church. He said Yes, is it your church that healed him? He said It’s God that healed him. We said we know its God that healed him.  He said, Then what’s the problem? If you go to the hospital and you are healed won’t you come home? We said, Sorry Sir! When I saw him about 3 months later. One the hand had become the same as before. The leg had become the same as before, things had gone worse. The mouth now he can’t close.

Don’t let sin truncate your destiny. Listen to me my brothers and sisters, I love you; God loves you! That’s why if you are here tonight and you are not yet born again, you must surrender to Jesus.  Jesus has promised, if your sins be as scarlet, I will make them as white as snow! If you used to be a Christian and you backslid, come back home. Come to Jesus tonight. He promised – return and I will heal your backsliding!  And this is you who claim to be Christians; who claim to be born-again, Jesus said how can you call me of royal blood and not do those things that I have commanded you. It’s not everyone who says unto me ‘Lord, Lord’ who will enter the kingdom of heaven. Listen to me my brothers and sisters – of what use is prosperity to you if you are not going to heaven? The Bible says what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul? Brethren this night can be a night you will never forget, it can be a turning point in your life if you will settle the issue of sin. You just make up your mind, from now on I will only do the Will of God, I guarantee you, He will become your partner. If God be for us who can be against us? So I want to call now, God is waiting to receive you.

This is the way we will do it tonight. Reports reaching me say there are people sitting even on the road almost to the express road. Daddy told me that that is going to happen, that is why we made arrangements for 54 altars. You will see then. If you look round you will see one near you, those of you who are far, far in the crowds. They are all painted white. I have stationed senor Pastors there waiting for you. If you want to give your life to Jesus and you are near the altar here, come here. If here is far look at the nearest altar to you I the crowd and go there. When I begin to pray for those who want to surrender their lives to Jesus the prayer will reach you there. Senior Pastors there are waiting just to attend to you. To make sure that I don’t wait for too long, I will count up to 10. By the time I get to ten, I will know that those of you who want to give your lives to Jesus will already be either in front of me here or at the nearest altar.

1 …. 2…. 3…. Just go to the nearest altar to you. God is waiting for you there. 4….  One good thing about the Lord Jesus Christ, His Blood cleanses from all sins…. 5…. The Bible says if any man be in Christ he is a new creature. Old things are passed away, behold all things are become new! So if you come to Him, no matter what you’ve done before in the past, He will forgive you, He will cleanse you. I’ve seen Him changing murderers, armed robbers, all kinds of people – come to Him! Let Him change your life! 6…. If you are coming to the main altar come but it is advisable go to the nearest altar to you. Its now 7. You have to make up your mind. You claim that you are born again and yet you are still living in sin. Somebody must be deceiving somebody because the Bible says if you have been newly born-again, you become a son of God. The Bible says, he that is born of blood does not sin, cannot sin because the truth of God abideth in him! 8 … If you say you are born again and you are still living in sin, you better run forward now and come and make your salvation sure! 9… Now those of you already in front, those of you I can see coming to the various altars, you are going to pray now. Cry to Jesus: Forgive me and save my soul! O my Lord, O my Saviour, I will serve You and I will not go back into sin. Save my soul! Continue to pray!

Brethren, the rest of us that are already sure of our salvation, with all our hearts, let us pray for these people, that the One who saved our own souls will save their own souls also! Stretch your hands towards them and pray! Pray for all these people that God will be merciful unto them, that He will save their souls. If you are near the altar then stretch your hands towards those people who are near the altar! And pray for them! Intercede for them! That the Almighty God will be merciful to them! One more minute! That the Almighty God will be merciful to all these people and save their souls! And save their souls! And save their souls! That God will cleanse them in His Blood! Write their names in the Book of Life! Things will change today! Pray for them brethren! And if there’s anyone who is still coming, make sure you get here before I finish praying! Get to the nearest altar to you; I’m going to pray!

Thank You Father! Father, save their souls – every one of them. Thank You! Almighty! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Father, I want to thank You for Your Word, which has gone forth in so much power. It is written, He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions! Thank You for sending Your Word to Your people. Thank You for these people who have decided to surrender their lives to You! Receive them in Jesus Name!! Forgive them in Jesus Name!! Save their souls in Jesus Name!!  Write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus Name!! Father, don’t let them go back into sin in Jesus Name! Thank You my Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now those of you who have given your life to Jesus, either those of you in front here or those who are at the various altars. Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Right! I want to make you a solemn promise, that God helping me, I will be praying for you, so I need your names, address and prayer requests. Give me your correct address because when I ask God to send your miracle, it will be sent to the address that you put there. So we will do that one very quickly Glory be to God!

While they are doing that, the rest of us we will want to pray. Are you ready to pray? I didn’t hear you. Let’s stand on our feet. If you are really ready to pray, please Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

Your first prayer tonight which I believe you will pray with all your heart is that Father- loud and clear – don’t let me be my own enemy! Ancient of Days Don’t let me be my own enemy! Because if you are living in sin then you are your own enemy! Lord don’t let me be my own enemy! Cry unto God! Please be merciful to me! Don’t let me be my own enemy! Don’t let me be my own enemy! Don’t let me be my own enemy! Everything in my life, let me let them go! Every form of sin, Lord God Almighty! let me let them go! Don’t let me be my own enemy! Anything that can truncate my destiny, let me let it go! Give me the grace to begin to live a life of holiness. Beginning from now! Beginning from now! Beginning from now! Beginning from now! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Now lift your voice to Him and say, Father, anything that will stand between me and my miracles tonight, take it away from me O Lord! Open your mouth and pray! Anything that will stand between me and my miracles tonight – Anything that will stand between me and my healing! Anything that will stand between me and my deliverance! Anything that will stand between me and my fruitfulness. ……Anything that will stand between me and my breakthroughs! Anything that will stand between me and my joy! Anything that will stand between me and my ministry!  Destroy tonight! Take it away from me, my God! Whatever, I’m holding on to that will not allow You to perform Your miracles in my life. Almighty God take away from me. If I don’t want them to go, Daddy take it by force! Take it by force! Take it by force! Take it by force! Take it by force! Take it by force! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

And then you will now say, Father, now that I’ve decided to do Your perfect Will, perfect that which concerns me! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! I’ve made up my mind now O Lord that I will do Your Will, Your perfect Will and obey You! By Your grace I will live for You! Father, perfect that which concerns me! Perfect health, perfect joy, perfect victory, perfect fruitfulness, perfect relations! I have made up my mind Lord that I will do Your perfect Will. Father, perfect that which concerns me! Father, perfect that which concerns me! Tonight perfect that which concerns me; perfect that which concerns me – every circumstance – physically, spiritually, maritally, in my ministry, every circumstance…….. In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Just one more corporate prayer. Say, Father, tonight, please send help to me! Cry to the Almighty God! Tonight, Father, please send help to me! Tonight O Lord, send help for me from heaven! Send help for me from the east, from the west, from the north, from the south, from all over the world! Send help to me! Send help to me! Send help to me! Send help to me! Almighty God Send help to me! From all over the world, from the four corners of the world – from the east, from the west, from the north, from the south, from all over! Send help to me! Send help to me! Almighty God Send help to me! Send help to me! Send help to me! Almighty God And from Your Throne Send help to me! Send help to me! Almighty God Send help to me! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Brethren, God is here, so ask Him whatever you want. Ask Him what You want for yourself. Go ahead! Ask Him! Ask Him! …. Thank You Father!  Now the Lord says, if any of you need spare parts – you want new eyes, new ears, new heart, new children – ask God now – if you want spare parts from heaven. This is the time. Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Thank You! Saviour! Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord! Blessed be Your Holy Name Lord! …. We just want to bless Your Name Lord! That which the doctor said cannot be done, that which is beyond repairs – ask for brand new ones. He is the God of all flesh. There’s nothing is too hard. He’s the One who made you from the beginning.  Ask for spare parts now. Thank You Father! Let’s begin to bring our prayers to a close. In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Wherever you may be stretch your hands in the direction of the main altar. Those of you who are far, far away just stretch in the direction where you are hearing my voice. Those of you behind the altar, stretch your hands to this direction. I ‘m going to pray for you now. Let your Amen!’ be loud and clear. In the mighty Name of Jesus! (Amen!) In the mighty Name of Jesus! (Amen!) Father, You are the God of all flesh. There is nothing too hard for you. I have spoken to Your people; I’ve told them they must forsake sin. They’ve made up their minds Lord. Whatever they’ve done wrong in the past forgive in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Forgive them in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Anything that can stand between anybody and his or her miracle today, remove it with your Blood in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Father, remove it with Your Blood in Jesus Name! (Amen!)! My Lord and my Saviour, by the authority invested in me by the commander-in-Chief of the Hosts of Heaven, I take authority over every evil force operating in your life in Jesus Name! (Amen!) I decree that they be bound in Jesus Name! (Amen!) I decree that they will loose you and let you go in Jesus Name! (Amen!) My Bible tells me that when Jesus entered the house of Peter and saw the mother-in-law sick of fever, he rebuked the fever- that means fever can hear the Word: Every sickness in you I rebuke now in Jesus Name! (Amen!) Every ache, every pain, every disease whatever their names, I rebuke in Jesus Name! (Amen!)  – sickness, disease, bondage! Hear the Word of the Lord: It is written; every plant that my Father did not plant shall be rooted up! I hereby decree sickness, disease, ache, pain, bondage, demons – get out in Jesus Name!! Get out in Jesus Name!! Be uprooted in Jesus Name!!

I pray that God will breathe on you. The same breath that made dry bones live again, the Almighty will breathe on you! (Amen!) Receive your healing in Jesus Name! (Amen!)! Receive your deliverance in Jesus Name! (Amen!)! Receive your breakthrough in Jesus Name! (Amen!)! Receive your victory in Jesus Name! (Amen!)! From now on you’ll be way, way ahead of your enemies.  (Amen!) It shall be well with you. (Amen!) I say it shall be well with you!  (Amen!) From now on it will be well with you! (Amen!) In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) If you receive that say ‘Amen!’ loud and clear! (Amen!) Let me hear the ‘Amen!’ again! (Amen!) Make it louder still! (Amen!) Go ahead! Give the Lord a big round of applause. God bless you! You may be seated!

Now there were some people who were carried in. By now many of them should be getting up and walking but to help their faith I hope the ushers have prepared the mats. If you have done so could you wave at me to let me know. They have been really stretched. I think the crowd tonight is more than we have ever seen before. Glory be to God! There they go, let’s clap for them. Give them a big round of applause. Now I want you to spread the mats. Your leaders will direct you. Those who were carried, its time to bring those people and lay them on the mats. The men of God are coming now to lay hands on them. Just to help your faith because the Word of God had already gone into them and that Word is already working but we will want to pray for them all the same – to help their faith. Glory be to God! So if you carried any one here, you can bring them forward now – lay them on the mats. Let’s do that very quickly. Alleluia, Father! …… O Come let us adore Him……. To help their faith …….

Let’s move fast brethren, let’s move …. There is none holy as the Lord …. Holy, holy, holy holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord…… brethren there are some people here to my left. Let’s get up, Let’s get up and go and attend to these people – spread over them, let’s minister to them very quickly. One of them is already up, Glory be to God! Thank you, I think the cameraman can see the fellow here to my right. Pick up that one; that’s one that is already up. Glory be to God! Glory be to God! That’s one that is already up! There’ll be several to follow. Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! The Lord is here tonight He is already moving – there’ll be several others! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! That’s right. Glory be to God! There’s a second one already moving over there. Over there to my right. Let her come. Let her move forward. Let her move forward. Let her move forward. Let her move. She’s already coming. Clear out of the way, let the camera see it.. see her! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! That’s the second one. There’ll be several others. Oh yes keep on praying for them. Help them to move on. Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Oh yes there’s another one, a third one. Keep on coming! Don’t stop! The strength will continue to increase as you come. Very soon you’ll be running! Very soon you’ll be running! Glory be to God! Thank You Father! That’s another one! That’s another one! Glory be to God! That’s another one! We thank You Father, He’s looking for several of you tonight.

The Lord is here! This is a night of signs and wonders. As they get up begin to allow them to come. Let them come! Let them come! There’s another one there! There’s another one there! Glory be to God! There’s another one there! There’s another one there! Glory be to God! There’s another one there! Oh brethren. Let them get up and begin to move! Give them room! Give them room! Let them come towards where we can see so that we can rejoice with them. Keep on moving! Keep on moving! The strength will continue to increase! Glory be to God! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Yes, keep coming! Keep coming! Don’t stop! The rest of you get up too! Get up too! And begin to move! Begin to move! The power of God is here tonight. Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Yes there is one here to my left! Keep coming! Keep coming! As you begin to take the steps you get stronger and stronger! You get stronger and stronger! You get stronger and stronger! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Oh yes!

There are many more. Blessed be the Name of the Lord! See that fellow is getting stronger now. He is almost ready to run now. He’s ready to run now. All right leave that one alone – let that child walk now. He should be able to move. Yes Glory be to God! Glory be to God! You get stronger and stronger. There are quite many of them now! There’s another one there! Another one there! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! You are not going to need that walking stick anymore. You can walk without it now. There is already power in your legs. Keep moving, keep moving – you’ll get stronger! You’ll get stronger and stronger. Don’t block their way. Let them walk first. You can interview them later! Please let them – now that the anointing is working on them, this is not the time for interview. Let them exercise their new-found strength first. You’ll have plenty of time to interview them later. Thank you!

Glory be to God! Keep moving! Keep moving! Keep moving! Don’t stop! The power of God is already working now! Let’s begin to praise the Almighty God! We can get a song of praise now! A song of praise!  The power of God is already flowing –let’s magnify Holy Name O Thank You Father! We are saying thank you Jesus, thank you my Lord….. There’s a young man here, he came on two crutches but now he’s dancing! Cameraman will you get this one for us? Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Let the others walk too. Begin to move now – the power of God is on you – begin to walk…… help them to  move….

The rest of us let’s rejoice with those who are rejoicing. Let’s praise God together! Glory be to God! ….. Can’t we get these people who are dancing so we can dance with them? Get up! Get up! …..Glory be to God! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Alleluia! Thank You! …. Thank You Father! Thank You Father! Glory be to God! The rest of you too get up! In the Name of Jesus get up and begin to move! Get up in the mighty Name of Jesus! (Amen!)! The fire of God is here! There’s another child over there… There’s a woman there too. Glory be to God forever more! Thank You Father! …

Because we are running out of time – Pastors, if there is any one you have laid hands on, who is still lying down there, give them a second touch. Pray for them one more time. Those of you, who are already walking, don’t stop. Keep on, the power of God will get stronger and stronger … keep going, keep going, keep going.. Just one more or two minutes and then we will continue… You are the mighty God, the great I Am, Alleluia! Alleluia!

…. And then Pastors you can begin to return. Pastors can begin to return after you have prayed for them a second time…..That’s it one young fellow there – Glory be to God! Blessed be the Name of the Lord!  Glory be to God! Don’t stop! Don’t stop! Once you start moving – Keep moving! Glory be to God! There is one child over there, over there. Thank you for delivery, thank you for delivery Thank you very much. Now Pastors you can come back because we just have to move. Because of time……… I can guarantee those who are still there because the anointing of God has gone unto you before the sun rises, you will rise also. I say you will rise also.

Now while the service was on the Almighty God kept on healing. All those of you who have been healed tonight I want you to do one thing. The Bible says they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the Word of their testimony. We won’t have time to take your testimony tonight but those of you who have been healed tonight, you want the world to know, you want God Himself to see you that Father I thank you for healing me. As we begin to sing now and you check your body and you discover that what was there before, is no more there, begin to dance forward. We will see you together with those who are already in front, we will rejoice together and we will be able to tell the devil that they have already testified and therefore you cannot touch them any more. So those who have been healed, I want you to dance forward so that we can glorify God together. Let’s have something we can dance to now.  We are all dancing now so nobody is sitting down. Dance and you check your body that you have been healed and you dance forward! Thank You Father! Alleluia! … The Lord is good, … Come on dance forward!  Glory be to God! ………Higher, higher, higher…… ….. You alone are God, You are King… at the mention of your name every knee has bowed…. Jehovah, You are the most high God…

I know that there are some of you, you are so far away you can’t get forward so what we will do is this, those who have been healed, they will remain standing. Those who are not in that our group, they will sit down. Because I can see all the aisles occupied …. So those of you who have been healed wherever you are stand up and wave your hands….. Glory, glory, Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)

I’m going to pray for you that your healings will be permanent and that you will serve God with your new-found health. In the mighty Name of Jesus! Father, You are truly the wonder-working God who can count this multitude? Healed in one night! Only You can do it – accept our thanks in Jesus Name! (Amen!). Because You healed them and they came forward to testify let their healings be permanent in Jesus Name! (Amen!)! What You have given them now don’t let the enemy take it away in Jesus Name! (Amen!). The new health You have given them, let them use it to serve You in Jesus Name! (Amen!). Father, I want to ask for something else too – I want these people too to lay hands on the sick and heal them (Amen!). Your healing power, release to them in Jesus Name! (Amen!). Anyone they touch from now, let that fellow be healed in Jesus Name! Thank You Father! Glory be to Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) One more time those of you who have been healed, wave your hands to Him and shout Alleluia (Alleluia!) Glory be to God! You are going to dance back to your seat and dance so that the devil will know that his head is already broken. And you will be dancing for the rest of your life. Can we have something? … bye bye to sickness o, bye bye to poverty O … in the name of Jesus…….

All right Thank You Lord! Thank You for the joy of serving You. Now before we listen to a few words of prophecy that God has for us tonight after which we will pray and then be on our way, it is our custom on every Holy Ghost night that when God has done marvelous things like this we love to say thank you to Him. How many of you want to say thank you to Him for what he’s done for you? Good – so the ushers will come. They will take our thanksgiving offering. To make it easy for them we will be dancing on our seat for now and when they finish we will stand up together and dance. We’ll hear a word or two of prophecy from the Lord and then we’ll be on our way. Ushers please attend to us and musicians, God bless you, you’ll be as good as usual …. Thank You so much Lord Jesus, we thank You, we thank You, we thank You……

Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)  Now if the ushers have not reached you, you are the only one to shout Alleluia (Alleluia!) …That’s the choir here. The rest of us we will stand now and just rejoice in the Lord for one minute and then I will pray for you and then you’ll be on your way. But let me assure you as God had always done in all Congresses, Saturday is always the sweetest day of all. You’ve received your healing now. That doesn’t mean that’s the end of the story. There’s an anointing service this evening that will empower you to use the master keys you’ve received. Take my word for it, the best is yet to come. So make sure you are here and God will continue to bless you. The morning programme I think will start by ten instead of nine this time round because of closing late and there are powerful sessions this afternoon. Let’s dance for a minute and then we go ahead. You are the Lord that is Your name, You will never share Your glory with any man …… everlasting Father, everlasting God, immortal Holy Ghost, be Thou glorified….

The Almighty God said, there’s someone here, anything less than very good will become a stranger to you. (Amen!)

The Lord said there’s someone here tonight and He asked me to tell you, He said, I will pursue those w ho are pursuing you. (Amen!)

And He asked me to tell somebody here tonight, He said, I will sweeten your bitter waters!

My Father and my God, we want to thank You for a wonderful night. Thank You for salvation! Thank You for healing! Thank You for mighty promises! Thank You because we know our tomorrow will be all right! Accept our thanks in Jesus Name!! Bless the offerings of your children, sanctify and use it for Your glory. Those who have given tonight, don’t let them ever lack again. The Lord Himself will bless you! (Amen!) He will prosper you! (Amen!) From now on His blessing will pursue you (Amen!) and overtake you. (Amen!) You’ll be mighty vessels of honour in His hand! (Amen!) Very soon your testimonies will shake the earth! (Amen!) So shall it be! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

The one who got the biggest blessing tonight let me hear you shout the loudest Alleluia (Alleluia!) …..

 Alleluia!

PRAISE THE LORD!
