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

Let someone shout halleluiah!
Shake hands with two or three people and tell them that you are expecting at least thirteen miracles from God this year
Daddy asked me to tell you that he meant it when He said he that this year will be a year of laughter for you.
Isaiah 9 v 6 for unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given and the government shall be upon His shoulder and His name shall be called; Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of peace.
Wonderful as we know by now is a combination of two words, wonder and full.
So wonderful actually means full of wonders.
Now when you read Act 2 v 22 the Bible talks about how God approved Jesus of Nazareth as a result of miracles, wonders and signs that He performed among the people.
Now when you read the way it is written, miracle, wonders and signs, they are written in order of superiority, in other words wonders are superior to miracle.
So I am telling someone here tonight, that something more than miraculous is going to happen in your life in Jesus name.
Wonders are a higher category of miracles.
And when you talk about Jesus Christ you will found that everything about Him is wonderful.
His name is wonderful according to Philippians 2 v 9 -11 God has given Him a name that is above every other names. That at the mention of His name, every knee should bow of things in heaven, of things underneath the earth.
His name is the only one that is recognized in three realms; in heaven, on earth and underneath the earth.
His love is wonderful, John 15 v 13 He says greater love has no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.
His love is so wonderful. You can’t get a greater love than the love of Jesus.
His peace is wonderful. He said peace I give unto you not as the world gives, give I unto you.
The Bible says in Philippians 4 v 7 He says His peace passes all understanding.
His power is wonderful.
In Matthew 28 v 18 He said all power in heaven and on earth has been given unto Me.
His power is wonderful. And I can go on and on.
I can tell you His grace is wonderful, His joy is wonderful, His strength is wonderful and on and on.
But because I told you that miracles are of a lesser degree than wonders that wonders is a higher level of miracles. We want to take some quick look at some illustrative examples from the scriptures.
I will be as quick as possible because we really want to pray, because one of the things about the name of JESUS being wonderful is that it guarantees the answer to prayer.
And I’m sure by the grace of God, every prayer we pray here tonight will be answered wonderfully.
Now healing is a great act of God, when God heals, it is something that we thank God for.
For example in Matthew 8 v 14 -15 the Bible tells us that Jesus came into the house of Peter and found the mother in law sick of fever, He merely touched her head and instantly she was healed.
Now that is a miracle that is beautiful healing. But then somebody may say what is in fever, just take two three tablets and off goes the fever.
So while healing is great, curing the incurable is greater. You know there are occasions where the doctors will tell you that “I’m sorry there is nothing more we can do”,
If they have told you that one, very soon when you stand before them again they are going to say wonderful.
In Mark 5 v 25- 34, the Bible tells us about the woman with the issue of blood. The Bible said she went to many physicians, spent all her money and rather than getting better, she grew worst.
Because the physicians were dealing with situation they couldn’t handle. But when she came in contact with Jesus Christ, in an instant the incurable became cured.
In the name of Jesus Christ any incurable disease, that is here today, will perish today in the name of Jesus.
Someone was pointing an article to me in one of the news papers recently, when a “clever reporter” was making a joke of the miracles God has performed in my life.
He said “Daddy what is your comment?”
I said I have no comment.
Those who make fun of miracle always ending up needing one; one day when the doctors says there is nothing more we can do, suddenly they will remembered there is the God of miracles.
In the Name that is above every other name, from this moment on you will enjoy the miracles of God.
But while we are talking about healing, while healing is great, curing the incurable is greater.
When healing involves creative miracle, then we call it wonderful.
For example in 2Kings 5 v 1 – 14 the Bible tells us about Naaman, who had leprosy.
When at the instruction of the man of God, he dipped himself seven times in Jordan, he was not only cleansed of his leprosy, it wasn’t that he was just cured, the Bible said he came out of the river with a brand new skin, the skin like that of a new born baby.
In John 9 v 1- 7 the Bible tells us the story of a man who was born blind.
It wasn’t that he had bad eye sight; it wasn’t that after he was born, his eyes became bad, he was born without eyes.
But Jesus spit on the ground made some mud out of the clay anointed his eyes, told him to go and wash in the pool of Siloam and the Bible says he had a brand new eye.
He came back with two brand new eyes. When you have a healing that involve creative miracle, we call that one wonderful!
If there is any part of your body that is already damaged beyond repairs, my Father will recreate it tonight in Jesus name.
There was this young man who came to a crusade and at the crusade, something happened!
When he was small, he had only one testicle and the one testicle did not even descend.
So the parent took him to an herbalist who in an attempt to cause the one testicle to descend destroyed it.
So the boy ended up without a testicle at all and yet he went ahead and got married.
Of course you know the result of such a marriage; nothing!
Then he came to the crusade which we held in Row park Yaba in the early 80’s and as the word of God was going on, he noticed that something was happening in his body.
To cut the long story short before the program ended he already got two testicles.
Later on he came into my office, some month later with his wife, by that time his wife is now pregnant and he was sharing the testimony again and in his excitement he said daddy may I show you the testicles? I said there is no need I can see the evidence.
Every one of you needing a spare partner tonight, you will get one is Jesus name.
Now a financial breakthrough is great, in Luke 5 v 1 -7 Peter fished all night caught nothing.
Jesus came into his boat, told him where to fish and he got enough to fill two boats.
That happened once then, the second time it happened was several years later.
So one financial breakthrough like that is good, to win a big contract is beautiful, but one massive breakthrough, I’m talking of the kind of breakthrough that will wipe out all your debt that is better.
For example in 2 kings 4 v1 -7 the Bible tells us of a widow who was so indebted that the creditors wanted to sell her sons to pay the debt, she cried to the man of God and the man of God told her what to do.
And the bottle of oil that she had in the house multiplied. So much that when she sold it, the man of God told her payoff your debt and live on the rest, you and your sons.
That is a bigger breakthrough, the one that clears all debts and there is a lot left over.
But when you have an unending, successful, successive breakthroughs, then that is what we call wonderful.
In 1Kings 17 v 8-16 the Bible tells us of the widow of Zareffat; you know the story, she had only one meal left then the man of God came on the scene and from that day onward the pot of oil is never dry, the vessel of flour was always full every day, she will wake up to discover that everything is full everyday; breakthrough upon breakthroughs.
I’m sure if you ask the son of that woman, what were you saying each time you woke up in the morning and you look at the barrel of oil is full, the vessel containing flour was full, what do you think the boy will be saying? Wonderful!
Do you know there is someone here today that before the end of this year, when you look at your account from month to month, what are you going to say? Wonderful!
I have told you the story of a man before, he might be in the congregation right now, he said to me, he said daddy, there is nothing I can do now to stop money from coming in.
I said I think you better explain because I have not heard that one before. Then he mentioned a particular city and he said the whole street, from beginning to end and it is a very long street, he said every house on that street belongs to him, everybody living there is his tenant, so there is nothing he can do to stop them from paying rent.
I decree to somebody here that very soon you will testify that there is nothing you can do to stop money from rolling in.
Now when a barren woman gives birth to a child, that is great, that is good news, that calls for rejoicing particularly if the fellow is someone that people have written off.
Like in Genesis 21 v 1 – 6 Sarah said who would have thought that Sarah will give Abraham a child, who would believe that at my age, I will still give birth to a child, so when she got one she named the child laughter and I can understand.
But it is better to get two instead of one, like in the case of Rachel in Genesis 30 v 20 -24 when she got her first child she said I know God will give me a second one and by the time we get to Genesis 35 v 16- 18 the second one came.
So to have one is good, to have two is much better, but then when you were barren and people have been mocking you and they have been saying what is the use of a tree without fruit?
And they say stop eating the food of our sons and get out of here and all of a sudden you end up with six children, now what do you call that? Wonderful!
Now that is what happened in 1 Samuel 2 v 21 tells us that Hannah, ended up with six children, she started with Samuel then God gave her additional boys and additional girls, she ended up with six, that is what we call wonderful.
One of my pastors who has been waiting on God for 26 years phoned us towards the end of last year with excitement; daddy, mummy finally God has answered your prayers and He has given me three children at a go.
So we asked her, what names have you given to them; she said the first one is called Miracles, the second one is called Signs, and the third one is called Wonders.
I saw the children last week and I said that God I am looking at Miracles, Signs and Wonders.
All of you who are believing God for the fruit of the womb, before the end of this year you will come forward rejoicing with your miracles with your signs, with your wonder, if you believe God let me hear you shout halleluiah!
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; He said you know it will take special miracles to solve your problems, He asked me to tell you that the anointing to set you free has been released.
Now let’s talk about deliverance.
Deliverance from an unclean spirit is great.
Mark 1 v 23-26 tells us the story of a man with an unclean spirit. A single demon inhabiting a man can be a terrible situation.
But thank God that the Almighty God has the power to set the captives free. He came in contact with the Lord Jesus Christ and he was free.
But when someone has seven demons inhabiting him/her alone, that is serious.
In Luke 8 v 10-3 the Bible tells us about Mary Magdalene she had seven demons inhabiting her. A woman with one single demon would be consider a witch, a woman with seven demons will be a chief among witches; when the witches are holding their meeting, they will probably tell her to chair their meeting.
But when a man is delivered from a legion as we read in Mark 5 v 1-15 when a man had a legion and Bible scholars mean a legion mean at least six thousand demons, when a man is delivered from six thousand demons at a go that is wonderful!
That is why I have goodness for someone tonight, it doesn’t matter how many demons are troubling you, in the Name that is above every other names you are going to be free tonight.
I have told you the story before of a man highly educated but for one reason or the other, certain demons decided to take him over.
The day they brought him I thought they have brought a mad man, the way he was looking, everything thing about him was evidence of seriously possessed person.
And then he began to tell his story, if he scratched his head cockroach will come out, if he out his hand into his ear butterfly can come out, and he wasn’t a magician.
He said just look at it any part of the body I scratch an insect will come out. I told him that I know some somebody who can set a man free from legion it doesn’t matter how many they are.
At the name of Jesus Christ every knee must bow.
He left, in those days I used to visit my mother every two, two weeks in Ilesha. Two weeks later he came back, I couldn’t recognize him; he had been completely transformed.
I am telling someone here today, all those forces who thought they had already capture, by the time you get home tomorrow morning, they will see you and say wonderful.
Thank you father, the Lord says there is someone here today He said you have become well known because of your many problems. The Lord asks me to tell you that you will become well known for your many testimonies.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said your breakthrough will come without previous notice.
Raising the one who has just died takes a miracle like in Mark 5 v 35 -42 Jarius daughter, the girl has just died but Jesus said the girl is sleeping; the people laughed Him to scorn. Jesus drove them out and He said little girl I say unto you arise.
And then people said well the girl wasn’t dead, she was sleeping that was what He said. So raising someone who is about to be buried will take a bigger miracle,
So in Luke 7 v 11-16 there was this widow who had an only son and the only son died.
Not just died, he was about to be buried when Jesus came on the scene and brought him back to life.
Brethren, raising someone who has been died and buried for four days, that one is wonderful.
That is why you see on out poster, the picture of Lazarus coming out from the tomb, all the people there must have been saying wonderful!
You will find that in John 11 v 39- 45 the sister said by now he is stinking. Not just dead, not just buried, he is rotten now.
But there is a God who can reverse the irreversible, and that God is here to attend to your case tonight.
Which reminds me of the testimony of one our sister, the baby in her womb died and she went to the hospital. The doctor said this child has been dead four days, but the woman went to the hospital when the child stops moving.
So they told the husband, we need to evacuate quickly so that it doesn’t become a problem for this woman.
But it was some days to the Congress and the woman said to the husband, “let me go to the Congress first, if after the Congress God doesn’t do anything we can come and evacuate”
The doctor said no!
This thing is already rotten inside you; the baby is dead and decaying.
Somehow the woman convinced her husband because the doctor said she herself will die if we don’t do something.
She said don’t worry let me come.
Monday she came nothing happened,
Tuesday nothing happened.
And then on Wednesday, the power of God came down.
The power of God came mightily that I couldn’t stand up.
How many of you will remember that night?
I asked them to get me a chair.
And the word of God came and said there is a woman here the baby inside of you has been dead for days but the baby is coming back to life. And the woman jumped and shouted, immediately the baby jumped back to life.
I am prophesying to someone here tonight, everything good in your life that have died will resurrect to life in Jesus name.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said the one who sent sorrow to your home, will come back to pick it up.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said this year even your doubt will not stop your sun from rising.
So raising the dead by prayer is a great act of God, no doubt about that like in 1Kings 17 v 17-24 when the son of the widow of Zarephath died.
Elijah threw himself on the child, prayed, went up and down, returned and pray again and at the third time the baby came back to life, that was a miracle no doubt about that.
But when your dead bones begin to raise the dead that is a greater miracle! That happened in 2Kings 13 v 20 – 21 that is the story of Elisha now, he was already dead and was buried and they were about to bury a young man and saw some enemies coming so they threw his body into the cave of Elisha, and as the dead body touched the bones of Elisha, the dead body came back to life.
That is a greater miracle!
But when you consider what happened in Ezekiel 37 v 1- 10 when Ezekiel found himself in a valley surrounded by dry bones and God asked him “son of man can these bones lives?”
The man of God with all his faith said. “God this is beyond my faith only you can tell”
And then the Lord said don’t pray, don’t touch the dry bones, just prophesy to the dry bones.
‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord begin to come together’.
I want you to put yourself in the position of Ezekiel as soon as he spoke and am sure he must have been grateful to God that there is no one there to hear him.
Because he must have sounded very stupid even to him.
“Dry bones hear the word of the Lord, come together”.
And suddenly the Bible said there was shaken.
Bones began to come together to join themselves to bones.
If you were Ezekiel what would you be saying?
Let me hear you say it loud and clear.
And then as he was watching, flesh began to cover the bones, skin began to cover the bones,
I’m sure he must have been saying wonderful, but they were still dead, and God said son of man prophecy a little more.
Prophesy to the wind; say wind, I hope you are listening to me?
I mean when he was talking to dry bones he could see dry bones but when he was talking to the wind he could not see anything so he said alright wind blow and the wind blew and suddenly a whole army arose.
I am going to prophesy tonight, I know you are not dead, and you are not dry bones but there might be situations in your life that might beyond hope that looks hopeless.
In the Name that is above every other name, every dry bone in your life should come back to life.
In every situation that the wind of the Holy Spirit must blow so that your hopeless situation might become hopeful again, the wind will blow tonight in Jesus name.
And before this night is over, you will shout WONDERFUL!!
Somebody said that it is what you call that will answer, that if you don’t call a man by his name, he has no reason to answer you.
That what you don’t call, you don’t have any reason to experience. So when ask you to say wonderful and you don’t call wonderful…
I have told you the story before, there must be a reason why the Holy Spirit is reminding me now of a young man who came when I moved to the University of Ilorin.
They gave me accommodation and he came to help me fix the electrical situation there, he put everything in order.
And when he was about to leave he said Daddy pray for me.
I said how much do I pay? He said no, I don’t have to pay, he is my son I should just pray for him but things are so bad financially I will have to give him money for transport back.
So I gave him the money and he said pray for me, I said you don’t need prayer now God bless you.
Thing so bad he didn’t have the money for transport fare, two weeks later he bought his first brand new car.
I prophesy to every business that is already dry bodes, dry bones you shall live again.
The Lord wants me to tell you another story.
I think there might something to this one also.
It is a story also you know.
One of my daughters came to me and said Daddy I am in serious trouble.
I said what is the problem?
She said my husband left me with four children and as moved in with a woman with five children and the five children by five father.
She said daddy, I have done everything I could, I have fought this battle but am totally defeated my husband is gone.
And I just hear the spirit of God saying
Tell her don’t worry.
Tell her your husband is coming back to beg.
She said I am not asking him to come and beg, I just want him to come back because this witch has taken over.
I don’t know what she did to my husband.
I said don’t worry the Almighty God will start a quarrel between him and the strange woman that nobody can settle.
Some days latter there was a misunderstanding between the strange woman and the man.
And the strange woman said unto him.
Don’t you know that your head is not correct?
If your head is correct, how can you leave your wife with your children and come and stay with me and none of these children is yours, don’t you know your head is not correct?
When God uses the devil to solve your problem what do you call that one?
The man said that is true oh,
And he packed his load came to his wife.
When he knocked at the door and the wife opened the door, he prostrated and said please take me back.
I am prophesying to every family here tonight, every evil that has come into your home to cause any kind of problem shall be up rooted in Jesus name.
Now killing a lion with bare hands takes a miracle.
And David did that and you know what a lion means.
A lion is an animal that wants to jump on you choke you and devour you.
Lion represent big bosses who want to crush those who are lower than them.
Killing a bear is a greater miracle because a bear represents an enemy who is pretending to be a friend.
Because the bear hugs his victim to death that is where you get bear hug.
When someone is pretending to be your friend, “I love you”, when he is actually planning to kill you,
To be able to represent that wolf in sheep clothing, to be able to destroy that one is a greater miracle still.
And in the Name that is above every other name, enemies that is pretending to be your friends, they will be exposed this month and they will be dealt with this month.
But then killing a goliath takes something called wonderful.
1Ssamuel 17 v 4- 9 the Bible tells us what Goliath said.
He said to the children of Israel why are you gathered together as an army?’
Give me one man let me fight him, if he can defeat me we all become your slaves, if I defeat him you all become our slaves.
What is he saying?
The devil knew David has been anointed to become king.
Goliath is saying I want to take over that kingdom even before this boy can get on the throne.
So what does Goliath represents?
Goliath represents somebody who wants to stand between you and your destiny.
And in the mighty name of Jesus just as goliath fell, just as goliath lost his head, anyone who wants to stand between you and your destiny will fall this month.
I give you an example.
In one of the nations of the world I won’t mention because this program is being aired all over the world,
We built a Church at a great expense and then we want to dedicate the Church and according to the laws of that land; you have to get approvals of all the neighbors that you are welcome.
And there was this very powerful man, high up in government.
He said I checked in the internet, I read about your general overseer.
That he said he wanted to plant church in five walking distance.
Well! Go and tell him, as long as I am alive his Church will not stay here.
And he is a very powerful man.
And so my children phoned me and said Daddy we have a problem.
What are we going to do?
We have already build the church. If we have not build the church, we will go and look for land elsewhere but the church is already built.
As a matter of fact they were already asking me to come and do the dedication.
I said what is the problem?, why are you worried?
The battle is not yours, it is between him and the Owner of the Church.
If he is bigger than the Owner of the Church well let’s wait and see.
They say so what do we do Daddy?
I said fix the date for the dedication.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said the date for your celebration has been fixed.
So they fix the date for the dedication.
A week to the date, and this man is still saying you are joking, without approval it can’t be done.
The man woke up in the morning, he wanted to go to work and as he was putting on his trouser.
His leg got caught in the trouser and he fell forward and hit his head on the floor and that was the end of the story.
Anyone who says you will not reach your goal this month in particular, the Almighty God will uproot him.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; the Lord said I will sustain your joy.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said just like the wall of Jericho fell, all your opponents will crumble one by one.
Now changing your destiny for the better is great.
In 1King 19 v 19-21 the destiny of Elisha was changed.
He was to be a farmer all the days of his life, but God changed it, so that instead of living and dying a farmer, he became one of the greatest prophets that ever lived.
That was great!
Restoring your destiny is greater.
That happened to Exodus 3 v 1 – 15
Moses knew that he was to be a deliverer but something went wrong and he ended up forty years in the backside of the desert until the Almighty God said let’s restore Him.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, the Lord said the relationship between Him and you has not been the way it ought to be for a long time, He ask me to tell you, I will start afresh with you.
Occasionally you find someone whose destiny has been totally truncated, destroy beyond repair.
When God then looks down from heaven at a man with a truncated destiny and He transformed that destiny we can only call it wonderful.
And I give you an example one, just one will do.
In Genesis 49 v 1-7 we have the story of Jacob about to die and he called his children together.
When a man is about to die, whatever he says it is a decree.
He said my children come I am about to die let me tell you what is going to happen to you.
And he began to talk to them one by one.
He told his first born, he said I know you are the first born but because of the things you did you will never excel and that settles that one.
He began to talk and talk then he came to one fellow called Levi, he said Levi, because of your terrible anger he said you are going to be scattered in Israel.
Terrible things coming from a father about to die and he finished saying all these things and died.
So there was no room for anybody to beg him and say father change your mind, it was something that was sealed.
And then suddenly God looked down from heaven and looked at Levi; the one that the father said he is going to be scattered and he said Levi draw near.
I will make you My first born.
He said of all these people irrespective of what their father had said to them, you Levi you will be My first born.
Numbers 3 v 11- 12. Truncated destiny!! Destiny destroyed beyond repairs but the Almighty God said come and be my first born.
In Yoruba Land it is known that if somebody is mad and has not yet reach the market place he can still be cured.
But once the madness takes the fellow to the market that is the end of the story.
Well some of you who are old will remember this story.
Years ago one man came to us; the wife not only ran mad, she had reached the market, not just reached the market; she had reached the market naked even before they knew what was happening.
So it was a settled matter, so they took her to one big herbalist who said well we will still try.
Then somebody who knew somebody told them and the husband came to me and said this is the problem.
I said that is no problem if you tell me where she is I will go and pray. So I went and we prayed.
The relative with whom she was saying, said to the husband ‘I don’t know this kind of man that you said you are sending, he came and he didn’t even pray for five minute, doesn’t he know what we are dealing with?
They were so disappointed and said let’s take her to cychristric hospital. If God do something fine, if not well!
After two weeks the doctor sent for the husband and said what do you say it is wrong with this woman?
Because for two weeks we have been observing her and we have not giving her drug.
If you say something is wrong with this woman then something must be wrong with you.
I decree tonight that if your destiny had been tampered with, it will be fully restored tonight in Jesus name and you will go home shouting WONDERFUL!
Now God performing wonders for you is wonderful.
I mean like in the story 2Kings 4 v 1 -7 when that woman who was in debt came to the man of God.
And the man of God said, go and borrow empty vessels, shut the door on yourself and your son and let your son begin to bring out the empty vessels to you as you pour out the oil.
I was telling some of my children last week Sunday, I said what do you think the boys were saying when the mother was pouring the oil from the vessel and they saw one empty vessel full?.
They brought another one full, they brought another one full, what do you think they were saying? Wonderful!
When your miracles begin to multiply everyday this year what will you be saying? Wonderful!
But turning you to a wonder is more wonderful.
Performing wonder for you is wonderful.
Turning you to a wonder is more wonderful, like in Act 3 v 1 -11 the man who was born lame at the beautiful gate who everybody knew he was lame, he was born lame.
He has been a beggar for more than forty years, suddenly they saw him walking and leaping and praising God. the Bible says they were all amazed. God turned the man to a wonder.
In the name that is above every other names, when people wants to give an example of wonders they will be refereeing to you very soon.
But something most wonderful is when God decides to perform wonders through you.
When He turns you to an instrument or a vessel of honor through whom He can perform wonders Act 5 v 14-16 the Bible tells us that the Almighty God so empowered Peter that his shadow began to heal the sick.
For God to perform a wonderful for you, for him to perform wonder to you that is wonderful, for God to use you to perform wonder, that is most wonderful and in the name that is above every other name you will not leave here until God has turn you to a vessel for performing wonder in Jesus name.
One of my pastors was sharing a testimony yesterday that there was a little problem over a little piece of land we have in one part of the country and then the people came and wanted to cause trouble.
One of them saw our pastor and said is this the land you are talking about they said yes, the Land of Pastor Adeboye?
They said yes. He said the last time when they came to cause trouble he said daddy shook hands with me and my body kept vibrating for a long time. Those of you that want to fight can fight; I don’t want another kind of hand.
That kind of handshake that can heal the sick, the kind of hand shake that can cause the lame to work, the kind of hand shake that can cause the dead to rise, God will give it you tonight in Jesus name.
Let me conclude so that we can have time to pray.
Thank you father, the Lord says there is someone her tonight, he said very soon your testimony will be once upon a time I was despised but now I am an amazement.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said very soon you will announce to your relative and say I told you that Jesus will never fail.
Who deserves wonders?
For whom will God perform wonders? I told you the story of a young man called Levi whose destiny was completely truncated and God completely transformed his destiny and that is wonderful in a high degree.
But what happened?
Exodus 32 v 25-26 Because God never does anything without a reason; Moses has gone to the mountain to collect the Ten Commandments.
The people came to Aaron and said we don’t know what happened to these Moses, we need an idol we can worship and they were already worshipping an idol they were naked, they were rejoicing before an idol.
When Moses came and he saw what was happening he was angry but he couldn’t face the nation alone, he wanted to punished them but he was one man, so he stood by the gate and cried out, “who is on the Lord side, let him come unto me and every sons of Levi crossed over to the side of Moses, they told Moses has cursed us….
We are not going to amount to anything but we are on the Lord side and God looked down from heaven and said Levi, you said you are on my side, then I am on your side.
Your father says you will be scattered I say you will be my first born. Who is going to get wonders from God tonight?
The question then is who is on the Lord side?
That is while if you have not yet given your life to Jesus Christ you better come and do so now. His wonder is for those on his side.
If you are pretending to be a Christian but you know your heart is not hundred percent with God come now.
God is calling for those who will be on his side… it is those who are on his side who will begin to say wonderful.
If you are not on his side you will be hearing the testimony but you won’t be able to say it is mine. If you are not on the Lord side and you want to be on the Lord side, beginning to run forward now….
As you come begin to pray calling on Jesus to save your soul.
Ask the Lord to have mercy on you, ask him to save your soul, promise him from now on you will serve him, ask him to forgive you all your sins.
The rest of you let us pray for these people; that the Almighty God will receive them save their soul and forgive them all their sins.
Let’s call on the Almighty God for all these people. Wish them well that savior will save their souls that he will forgive them all their sins that from today onward they will be called children of the living God.
Thank You Jesus, In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Father I just want to say thank you, thank you for your word and thank you for all these people who have decided that they want to be on your side, you promise that whomsoever come unto you, you will in no wise caste out.
They have come now father receive them in Jesus name.
Save their souls in Jesus name. Father forgive all their sins in Jesus name, write their names in the book of life in Jesus name, let your blood wash them clean in Jesus name, Father I am praying that from now on anytime they call on you will answered them by fire, than you Almighty God in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
I want to rejoice with you because from now on by the grace of God I will be praying for you, so I am going to need your name, your address and your prayer request so I can know how to pray for you. And by God’s grace you will be receiving miracles. Please drop these information here www.rccg.org

Glory be to your holy name. Thank you for January, thank you for February, thank you for March, thank you for this Special Holy Ghost Service. Accept out worship in Jesus name.
Tonight in the lives of all your children; those who are here and those who are listening by the internet all over the world, in all our lives do something special, do something new, do something glorious, do something miraculous and at the end of it all let your name be glorified.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let someone shout halleluiah!
I want you to shake hand with two or three people and ask them are you expecting signs and wonders. And then you may please be seated.
Tonight is going to be a night you will never forget for the rest of your life; I don’t know exactly how the program will go, so whichever way it goes, but one thing I know is that God is visiting His people today.
When I became General Overseer, there were some people who were not sure whether it was God who called me or it was manipulated. Then God began to give us a sign; anytime we call for a special program, that very day a baby boy will be born. All the time without fail!
Well tonight God decided to give us a sign, by 8pm tonight, the number of children born here is five and all of them are boys!
No mathematician can arrange that!
The Almighty God is telling someone here tonight, the night you have been waiting for has come at last.
Some days ago, I was in Ondo State and at a stage in the program I told them a story after which we prayed. As I was praying for this program, the Lord told me to extend the blessing of that day to those of you who are going to be partakers of tonight.
We are going to start with that one.
So I’ll tell you the story and we will do what God wants us to do.
I told them the story of one of my daughters who came to me and said Daddy,
“I am pregnant”, I said congratulation! Because she was married. “How old is the pregnancy?” She said three month, I said good.
She said that is not why I have come; I want the baby to be a girl. I said ah the little I know about science makes it known to me that by the time a baby is seventy two hour old in the womb, everything that child is going to be is already completed; girl, boy, tall, short, everything done within 72hours.
So you have been pregnant for more than seventy two hours, so you have been pregnant for three month; the sex is already settled.
She said daddy, you are the one who thought us that with God all things are possible.
I said yes but… she said when you were teachings us you didn’t add but.
I said okay what do you want me to do?
She said you are not the one to determine the sex, she said all I want you to do is that I want you do is to agree with me.
I said fine infract why did you want it to be a girl?
She said so that she will grow up quickly and begin to wear my dress.
So we agreed, six month later, the baby came and she is a girl.
Now that my daughter is seating with me somewhere there on the altar now.
I know some of you will say well maybe she was a girl to start with.
But then a sister heard the testimony, a medical doctor in Luth.
She came and said, I have already got four daughters, I am pregnant now for 8 month and the scan has showed that it is a girl.
But my in law said you don’t give us a boy for our son now, we will drive you out of our house.
So I have come that you agree with me that it will be a boy. I said sister you are a medical doctor yourself.
She said I have not come to discuss medicine, you agree with that lady, you must agree with me.
I said no problem. I agree it shall be a boy.
A month later she delivered and he is a boy!
Why have I told you the story?
There might be somebody here tonight, who wants me to agree with him/her concerning something.
You will stand on your feet now and tell God what that thing is, that thing that only God can do. Not science, not medicine, not anything human. Something that only God can do. So you talk to God about it now…. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
My father and my God the Maker of heaven and earth, the One who called me and send me;
Tonight, with all these your children including those who are watching by the internet all over the world,
I am in total agreement with them whatever they have asked for give to them now in Jesus name.
Before the sun rises tomorrow, give them their testimonies in Jesus name.
Thank you because I know it is done.
And I am committing all those who are born in the month of March into your hands, three is the number of the Trinity; God the Father bless them in Jesus name, God the Son bless them in Jesus name, God the Holy spirit, bless them in Jesus name.
Let their blessings come in triples in Jesus name. And let them serve you till the end.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed amen.
Let someone shout halleluiah!
When I was about to turn seventy, I asked God for seventy thousand children, He send them so quickly, by Last December I increased the number to hundred thousand. Tonight I have asked the Almighty God to increase the number to one seventy one.
If you agree, let me hear you say “we agree!”
But I have asked for something extra.
I have told Him that before this time next year, among those of you who are listening to me right now, I want God to raise seventy one billionaires.
Now I know there are some of you who will say, how can that possibly be?
That is why He is going to be God, all I want to say is if you happened to be one of them, please let me know as soon as possible, because He is going to turn you to a billionaire because we have work to do.
In April as usual, we are going to have a special Holy Ghost service for children.
When I said children that means all of us less than a thousand years old.
But seriously speaking from year’s back we discovered that when the dry season is changing to wet, several children suffer from several manners of attack and many of them die.
And we cry to God and He said we should arrange for our own children to be anointed every April and He said He will take care of the situation.
You see many of us don’t know how powerful our God is until we begin to hear testimonies.
A bullet from AK 47 went through the jacket, went through the shirt, went through the singlet and it got to the body and stopped.
That is my God and that is the One who will take care of all your children.
Make sure no child is left behind next month.
When the devil discovered that way God has been taking care of our children, he began to create a special traffic jam to hinder these children for coming.
But then we learnt our lessons; bring your children as early as possible don’t wait till evening. If they get here by 2pm there is plenty of space to roam around.
In the mighty name of Jesus, you will not bury your children.
And the THEME for next month is ARROWS OF THE MIGHTY.
That is what God called the children.
2Kings 2 v 9-15 and it came to pass when they have gone over that Elijah said unto Elisha, ask what I shall do for thee before I be taken away from thee, and Elisha said I pray thee, let the double portion of thy spirit be upon me.
And he said thou has asked a hard thing nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken away from thee it shall be so unto thee, if not, it shall not be so.
And it came to pass as they still went on and talked that behold there appear a chariot of fire and forces of fire and parted them both asunder and Elijah went up to heaven by whirlwind.
And Elisha saw it and he cried my father, my Father the chariot of Israel and the horses thereof and he saw him no more and he took hold of his own cloth and rend them into two pieces. He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him and went to the bank of Jordan.
And he took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him and he smote the waters and he said where is the Lord God of Elijah and when he also has smitten the waters they parted hither and thither and Elisha went over.
And when the son of the prophet which were to view at Jericho saw him and they said the spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha and they came to meet him and bow themselves before him.
Promotion or progress can fall into seven basic categories;
Category one is called REGRESSION.
Regression means there are forces beyond you that are progressively pushing you backward.
In Mark 5 v 25-34 the Bible tells us the story of the woman with the issue of blood, she suffered many things of many physician, she spent all she had instead of getting better, she grew worse.
Forces beyond her control kept on pushing her backwards. Physically she grew worse, financially her money depleted until there were nothing left.
There might be some people here tonight, when you look at where you are now compared to where you are last year, you saw that things instead of staying where they are have been going backward, whatever hands have been pushing you back, the fire of God will consume tonight in Jesus name.
A second category is called REPRESSION.
Repression means there are forces pushing you down and trying to hold you down, at anytime you tried to lift up there is this force that is saying no! Go back down.
In Judges 6 v 3-6 the Bible tells us that a certain group of people decided to torture the children of Israel.
When they are planting they don’t bother them, they wait till the time of harvest, as soon as they harvested their crops they move in like locust and gather everything and then leave. So these people will have to start again, and they will watched till they began to lift up their head and then they come and crush them.
Several years ago, when I was very tiny, there was a robber in Lagos, very notorious robber, so notorious that the waxed a record after him.
His name was Anikura and the song writer said concerning him; that Anikura won’t ask you not to trade, he won’t ask you not to gain, but he will make sure you don’t take the gain home.
Now that is repression! Now all those forces that have been pushing you down, in the name that is above every other name, the fire of God will consume tonight.
The next stage is called STAGNATION;
No progress at all, no forward movement, no upward movement, just stagnant like a pond.
In spite of all efforts in John 5 v 2 – 9 it tells us the story of a man who was sick for thirty eight years, always waiting for the staring of the pool of Bethesda.
When the angel will come down stirred the water, the first fellow to jump in will be made whole, as soon as the angel comes down, this man will begin towards the pool of water, before he got there somebody else would have jump in and he will have to go back and wait for another year.
There are some of us at the beginning of every year when they are saying happy New Year, you will say yes this must be my year but gradually January had become December and they discovered that there are still in the same place.
When I was at the University of Lagos as a student, there was a student there, I won’t mention his correct name, let’s just call him u dot, it’s very close to the name but that is not the real name.
He has been in the university for eight years, he has never gone beyond year one, he was changing faculties, changing department but he never left year one, went met there we left him there.
That is what is called stagnation. In the name of the One who made heaven and earth whatever force is holding stagnant shall be destroyed tonight in Jesus name.
Now the next stage is called RETARDATION:
Retardation means there is growth but it’s so slow that it becomes embarrassing.
When you see a child who is ten years old behaving like a child who is only three years old, you will say the child is retarded.
The problem with retardation is that they will see a little progress. But the progress is so little it becomes an embarrassment. Another way of talking about retardation is to call it trapped destiny.
In Genesis 49 v 1-4 the bible tells us that when Jacob was about to die, he called his children together and began to make pronouncement concerning each one.
He said concerning Reuben his first born; he said Reuben even though you are my first born, even though you have energy, you have power, you have everything going for you, he said Reuben you will not excel, from that day onward the destiny of Reuben was trapped.
I’ll give you another illustration; I met a man of God after we’ve met for some five years, I said how are things?
He said “all is well”, how is your church? He said it is good. I said “what is your attendant like now?” he said we are about a hundred and five.
I said but last time I saw you about five years ago, you were about a hundred five years ago, you are about hundred and five after five years!
Even if you are winning a soul per month by now you should have added at least sixty souls. He said pray for me, I think am suffering from the spirit of Retardation.
I am praying for everyone tonight who is suffering from any form of retardation, that spirit of retardation is destroyed in your life in Jesus name.
And then the next one is called the normal promotion; in other words you are making progress, steady regular, as you work hard, progress are coming at least every month they increase your salary, maybe once in five years, they remember you to promote you a little.
You see the problem with normal promotion is that it is normal. For the child of God that is not the plan of God.
In John 10 v 10 Jesus Christ said I have come that you may have life and have it more abundantly. Let me tell you the problem with normal promotion. I think I have given this illustration sometime before;
When you attend a state function (you must at least be important to a certain extent to have been invited) and then it is time for refreshment and they say all head of state will refresh at such and such a place.
All governors and minister at such and such a place.
Commissioners and so forth at such and such a place and they say all others you will refresh in the stadium.
I decree tonight that from this moment onward, you will leave the group of all others.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said Lazarus heard my voice and came out of the grave. He said that project will hear my voice tonight.
The Lord asked me to tell someone here tonight He said Elephant don’t grow smaller for having babies; He said the more souls you win the bigger you become.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said none of your children will die small.
After normal promotion comes what we call ASSISTED PROMOTION.
Someone interested in your welfare intervenes and brings you to a level that you have not even qualified for. Yes you still work hard, but this time somebody says let us help this fellow. Let’s move him up higher.
I decree to someone here today; the one who will help you, even if the fellow is sleeping now, God will speak to Him in Jesus name.
One of my children who was preaching and he gave us an example of what I will call assisted promotion; Isaac said to Esau, go and get me food so I can bless you.
While papa was speaking, Mama heard and decided this blessing is not going to be for Esau it is going to be for Jacob. Mama did everything; she maneuvered everything and the blessing that will have been for Esau landed on Jacob.
I don’t know who I am talking to tonight, but from the East help is coming your way, from the west help is coming your way, from the North help is coming your way and even from the south help is coming your way.
I can tell you several stories on that, but there is a lot God wants to do tonight,
So that brings us finally to Accelerated promotion, this is a promotion that is completely unusual; you are at the bottom today, the next moment you are at the top.
A very good example is in 1Samuel 16 v 11- 13 it tells us the story of David who was in the bush looking at after goat and sheep and then suddenly a messenger came ‘David you are wanted at home”, what for?
I don’t know, but I see a man who looks like a prophet, then he came home and as soon as he came, God spoke to the prophet and said this is the person, this is the one we have been waiting for, anoint him, and suddenly they told David to kneel down, he knelt down, by the time he got up, he was already a king.
One moment, he was a shepherd boy the next moment he was a king that is what is called accelerated promotion.
Do you know there is someone here tonight; by the time you get home your promotion is already settled.
Have told some of you before, on the day we were getting married we went to the registry and then we saw something happening, there is a girl who was dressed for wedding but we couldn’t find the bridegroom, the man who said he was going to marry her ran away.
The girl nearly went mad but she survived.
After some time she married a soldier, unknown to her the boy that jilted her also joined the army.
And then God moved.
There was a military coup and then the husband of this girl became a governor.
And the boy who jilted her was assigned to be the Aid the camp for her husband.
So anytime this girl wanted to enter a car, the former husband to be was the one who will open the door.
I decree to someone here today, by the time your promotion is accelerated to the point where God will do it, all those who have been mocking you will be bowing down before you.
Because this is exactly what happened to Elisha.
As Elisha and Elijah were travelling, other sons of prophets they were saying to Elisha, ehn daddy son! Daddy son!
Do you know your water is about to dry behind the fish, your master is going today?
He said I know shut your mouth.
They were watching to see what will happen, but in the twinkling of an eye, the one they were mocking at, all of them came and bow down to him.
Do you know there are some people who are saying when they saw you getting ready, she is going again, Papa Holy Ghost service, Mama Holy Ghost service go well!.
In the Name that is above every other name, because of tonight this same people will come and bow down before you.
Let’s have some practical applications; let’s just take accelerated promotion in one or two practical area of our lives.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you relax I will still your storm.
Daddy asked me to tell someone here tonight, He said you will never go hungry again.
He asked me to tell you there is someone here tonight; He said from now on anyone who tries to block your way shall be trampled to death.
Let’s take the area of health;
Let’s look at the example in Mark 2 v 1-12 there was a man who was completely helpless, paralyzed from neck downwards, the friends had to bath him, they had to cloth him, they had to feed him.
One day they got feed up, they heard that Jesus was near, they carried the man to where Jesus was, there was no room at the door, no room at the window but they were determined they won’t go home with that problem, so they climb the roof, tore the roof and lay the man at the feet of Jesus.
They carried him in, he walked back home. What they used to bring him in, he carried it back home.
There might be one or two people here tonight; that doctors have told you there is nothing they can do for you, in the name that is above every other name, the doctors will get a surprise.
Healings can be in categories, you can be getting gradually better, but God can heal in an instant.
The Almighty God will accelerate your healing tonight in Jesus name.
And then we can look at the area of bondage to forces of darkness.
Take Mark 5 v 1 – 20 the Bible tells us about the mad man of Garderen…
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I will open for you a new season of glorious testimonies.
The mad man of Garderen, didn’t go for ten weeks of deliverance service, he didn’t spend all night with a deliverance minister, he was raving mad in the morning, within an hour, not only was he completely delivered, he became an evangelist for God.
He switched over from under the power of the devil to the mountain top on the side of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Several years ago, a bank manager ran mad; they had to get four hefty police men to grab him. They handcuffed him, they put chain on his feet and they were carrying him to Arrow (asylum), but in his madness he begged them, ‘take me to Redemption camp; I know if I get there I will be alright’.
I was in my first office near the expressway when they brought him and they told me the story and the way he was looking, he was as wild as anybody.
So I told the policemen he said if my feet touched redemption camp I will be free, let him come down. They ah! We knew what went through before we could capture him, pray for him in the car and we take him away.
I say no, bring him down loose him, they said we will hold you responsible, I said no problem, so they removed the chain, removed the handcuffs, he jumped out of the car as he landed, he said praise God!
He became completely normal.
I have good news for someone her today, it doesn’t matter how long the enemy had held you captive simply because you are listening to me now, receive your freedom in Jesus name.
But you know the better part of that story, he said to the policeman, he said I told you and they were all looking surprise, so they said to me sir, pray for us.
I said well if you will give your life to Jesus Christ first, they said with what we have seen we are ready to give our life to Jesus name.
He was a mad man; He was being taking to asylum, because of his experience, he won four souls in a single moment.
Not only are you going to be free, when you leave this place, you will begin to set the captives free.
Then let’s look at the area of material possession, when you read 2King 4 v 1 -7 it tells you the story of a woman who was so heavily in debt that creditors wanted to see her son to recover their money because there was nothing in the house that they could sell.
She cried to the man of God, the man of God prayed and gave instructions; go home do this, do this. By the time she returned not only had her debt been cleared, she had enough money to last her for the rest of her life.
I don’t know who this one is for, but in the name that is above every other names, God is going to accelerate you financially so mightily that poverty will become a stranger to you.
Many of you already know the story; I am telling it for the benefit of those of you who are hearing it for the first time and for the benefit of those of you who are doubting if you can be one of the seventy one billionaire!
Daddy says, “My son, don’t limit me to seventy one billionaire”
Father! As many billionaires as possible!
If you are going to be one of them, let me hear you say I am one of them.
You know the story of the Arab boy; who gave his life to Jesus but because they wanted to kill Him for converting to Christianity they wanted to kill him he ran away from his country, came to London and had no papers.
So he couldn’t get a good job and all he was doing was working in a fast food restaurant. Then one day a wealthy Arab came to London to buy houses but he couldn’t speak English.
So he would see a house that he likes, he would go to the fellow there and said me house I buy” and that fellow will say get away from me, who told you I wanted to sell my house.
After he has been going around for a while, he was hungry and tired and he saw a sign that they were selling food there, he branch there, sat down and was grumbling to himself in Arabic and the Arab boy went to serve him and herd him speaking in Arabic.
And said Sir, what’s the problem, and the man said Ah! You speak my language, the boy said yes. Do you speak English also?
The boy said yes. I want to buy houses, I need interpreter, I want you to come and interpret for me, for three days, the boy said sorry sir, if I go with you for three days, when I come back my job will be given to somebody else. He said I will pay you well. The boy said ‘how much?’
The man said ‘one million pounds per day,’ the boy said please don’t go away, he went to the owner of the restaurant, he said bye, bye’.
That one said if you go, if you come back I won’t take you, he said I will never come back.
There is some one here tonight; you are crossing the border of poverty forever.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said those who are trying to catch up with you will soon discover, I made you number one and number one you will remain.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said even big rivers have boundaries, He said but so that people will know that it is me in your life, I will make your blessing without boundaries.
Let’s look at the area of spiritual promotion; the text that we read tonight, in 2king 2 v 9-15 in the morning, Elisha was just a son of a farmer following a prophet around, by the evening he was the father of all sons of the prophets in the land.
Not only that, by the evening, he had doubled the power that Elijah ever had.
Several years ago at Ebutte metta Head quarters, when we come for workers meeting in the evening, pastors will seat on one side, workers will seat on the other side.
And there was this evening, one Sunday evening, we were doing a little bit of bible study before we pray, so I mentioned a particular passage and I asked everybody to begin to give their interpretation.
All the pastors gave their interpretation; It wasn’t anywhere what I was expecting so I turned to the workers “what do you understand by this passage”?
And one young worker got up and gave an accurate evaluation of the topic. So I said congratulation pastor. Soon as he heard me say that he grabbed his chair and moved to the side of the pastors. The pastors were saying, no, no it’s a mistake.
He said which mistake?
General overseer calls me pastor, what else do I need?
I said my son, anointing with oil will come but from now on you are pastor.
I am saying to somebody here, the anointing service may come later, but your spiritual promotion is done tonight.
Let me round up quickly so that we can do the next thing.
He said before I round up, I should tell someone that celebrations come and go, he said but I will make your own celebration last forever.
The Lord say there is someone here, He said I will start you with unusual blessing, I will move you on to overwhelming blessing and I will end you up with unimaginable blessing.
You see whether you go up or not depends on actually who is holding your hand; if God is the one holding your hand; the bible says you will go from glory to glory.
Your promotion will be accelerated and then accelerated, then accelerated. But if you decide that it is through satanic means you are going to get your promotion; all you can get ready for is shame.
There is a funny story, the fellow concern is one of the Pastors, maybe you’ve heard him sharing his testimony. Before he gave his life to Jesus, everybody knows that for you to have unusual promotion, you need a supernatural force.
So he was running around with one false prophet who told him that he must go to the bar beach to wash in the ocean at night. So he went to the bar beach, big man drove his car to the bar beach, removed his clothes, place it on the car and was in the bar beach.
Thank God the wave didn’t wash him away. But one mad man was passing by, saw his clothes and took them away. By the time big man came back, no clothe! So ‘what do I do know, at least I have to go back home, fortunately it was night, so he entered his car and I think his car was also naked with him.
When they got to police check point, when they showed their torch light into the car and saw naked men, the police ran, they thought they were ghost.
One day very soon, you will look back at your years of suffering and laugh.
If you are holding onto God, he will promote you from Glory to glory, if you are holding onto the devil; he will drag you lower and lower.
And if you think you can hold God with one hand with God and hold the devil with the other, you will soon discover what God said, that if you want to be cold be cold, if you want to be hot be hot, he said but if you are Luke warm, he said he will spew you out of his mouth, that is why I am appealing to you tonight, because this is a night you will never, never forget, make up your mind, with whom do you want to go?
Is it with God or with the devil? If you want to go with the devil, take my advice go all the way; do everything evil, make money by any method, so that when you get to hell, you will tell the devil, at least I tried.
If you want to belong to God, go with him all the way.
This ideal of being a Christian and then behaving like the child of the devil must stop. If you want to belong to Christ, let the whole world know you belong to Christ and then Christ will show himself mighty on your behalf.
Now I know some of you have given your life to Jesus Christ tonight, but some of you came later, So if you are not ere when the first altar call was made and now you want to surrender your life to Jesus, I want you to come quickly now, come and give your life to Jesus.
Let me pray that God will save your soul, so that from now, it will be God who will be puling you up every day, because accelerated promotion, requires divine intervention
So if you want to give your life to Christ tonight, come now….
Those of you who are already in the front talk to the Almighty God ask Him to be merciful unto you, ask him to safe your soul, ask him to forgive you your sin, ask him to give you a new beginning, call on him now, promise him that you will serve Him for the rest of your life, that He will be your Lord as soon as he becomes your savior.
And the rest of us lets stretch our hands toward these people that the almighty God will have mercy on them, that the savior will save their souls, that he will cleanse them with his blood, let’s intercede from them for one minute.
… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Savior, we bless your name, we give you all glory, we give you all honor, we ask that you please accept our thanks in Jesus name.
On behalf of all these your children who have come forward accept our thanks in Jesus name.
Father please remember your promise that who whosoever will come unto you, you will in no wise cast out, they have come to you now; please receive them in Jesus name, save their souls in Jesus name.
Wipe away their sins with your blood in Jesus name, write their name in the book of life in Jesus name, give them a brand new beginning now in Jesus name and from now on anytime they call on you please answer them by fire.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Those of you who have come forward shout halleluiah!
Am rejoicing with you tonight, because beginning from now by the special grace of God, I will be praying for you and very soon you will be receiving miracle and then you will know there is somebody somewhere praying for you.
So kindly fill out the form on this website…
1. Praise God that he has made this day to come to past
2. Father, every force pushing me backward or pressing me down, please destroy tonight.
3. Father, every trace of stagnation or retardation in my life, please clear them off now.

Let someone shout halleluiah!
Prayer for April children
If you are an April child let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Father, I am committing all your children born into the month of April into your hand, April if the fourth month of the year, so Lord I am asking that you will give them fourfold blessing in Jesus name.
From the east send help to them, from the west send help to them, from the North send help to them, from the south send help to them, from the four corner of the world send help to them, let it be well with them and let them serve you till the end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
April children let me hear you shout another halleluiah!
By the grace of God in the month of May we will be talking about THE WONDERS OF HIS FAVOUR.
I have been talking about favor recently particularly since December but it looks as if the more I study divine favor, the more I discovered.
So next month being the fifth month normally the moth of grace; and the word grace and favor go together, we will be talking about the WONDERS OF HIS FAVOUR so I am looking forward to seeing you there and it will be a wonderful time in Jesus name.
We want to talk briefly talk about the ARROW OF THE MIGHTY.
Psalm 127 v 3-5 Lo children are an heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is His reward, as arrow are in the hand of a mighty man so are children of the youth. Happy or blessed is the man that has his quiver full of them, he shall not be ashamed but he shall speak to the enemy at the gate.
Tell your neighbor you will never know shame again!
The one who spoke before me had already given you the definition of an arrow.
Simply put an arrow is a weapon; it could be a weapon of defense 1 Samuel 14 v 45- 47 when David was going to kill Goliath, he didn’t get close to Him, he sent what you could call an arrow to go and deal with him.
Because an arrow is a weapon that you stand in one place and you send it on an errand to go and deal with your enemies.
And I am praying that even as you are here tonight, the Almighty God will send all those forces to go and deal with all those forces working against you.
An arrow could also be a weapon of offences; when you need to deal with forces that are coming against you and you need to go ahead and attack them particularly before they can overwhelm you.
In Psalm 8 v2 the Bible says out of the month of babes and suckling Thou art ordained strength, so that you can still your enemies. God ordained strength through the mouth of babes, and as you are going to see later on God uses children as a weapon of his warfare.
Now since we have two major words; Arrows of the Mighty.
Arrow and mighty and you already known when we talk of mighty you know whom we are talking about.
Maybe we should spend some time to talk about weapons generally, because there are categories of weapons; you have arrows, you have spears, you have guns and now you have bombs.
But when we say we want to talk about weapons briefly now, we want to talk about spiritual weapons.
And I will start by talking about weapons that available to all; whether you are a Christian or you are not a Christian, there are weapons that will work for you. Maybe I will just mention one that is common to everybody. Interestingly it is a weapon many people are reluctant to use.
It is called the law of harvest, the Law of harvest says in Galatians 6 v 7 be not deceived God is not mocked whatsoever a man sows that is what he reaps.
The law of harvest; you sow you reap.
It is applicable to everybody, it doesn’t matter where you are a Christian or you are a total unbeliever, if you sow you will reap.
Proverbs 11 v 25 says the liberal soul shall be made fat; he that water shall be watered himself.
Now He didn’t say the liberal holy soul, it doesn’t matter whether he is a sinner or not. The liberal soul shall be made fat. . It is a weapon available to all.
When God said give and it shall be given, He didn’t add provided you are a Christian, it is a weapon available to all.
But then there are some weapons available to believers only;
Number one: Praising God.
When you praise God; He arises for you Psalm 68 v 1 – 3 says let God arise, and His enemies will be scattered.
You praise God, He will arise for you. That is why Christian who know what they are doing always come before God with praise.
People wonder why do we spend so much time praising God, it’s because it is a weapon.
I have told you before, you’ve never seen me when we are gathered together like this no matter how huge the crowd, you have never heard me say “Devil I bind you”
I don’t want you to interfere with this program. Because every day I hear people say Devil I bind you, at the beginning of the service, Devil I bind you, in the middle of the service I bind you, and at the end Devil I bind you.
Did he get loose so quickly?
But I have discovered that if you want to get the Devil far away from you, just praise God.
That is why I started everything by saying let somebody shout Halleluiah!
But God will not even accept the praise of a wicked, according to Proverbs 15v 8 it says the sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to God.
But praise in the mouth of a Christian is a weapon.
2Chronicle 20 v 25, you know very well how a king overcame all his enemies just by praising God.
I still remembered a case several years ago, either 1981 or 1982 at the headquarters, we were having a little crusade at the Headquarters. God spoke to me and said tonight, nobody should pray to me, everybody should just praise me; sing dance and praise me and see what I will do, and I announced it.
Shortly after, they brought a woman that had been rejected from the hospital to go home and die. They brought her to the place because she heard that God was performing miracles.
Daddy says the story I am about to tell you is going to be replicated here tonight.
They brought this woman, she was dying, and she came and saw my assistant and said “please pray for me, they said if I get here God will heal me”.
My assistant said “sorry ma; announcement has come from the altar, no prayer tonight, just praise”.
She said “But I am dying”.
My assistant said, If only you will do what they tell you just dance you will be well
She said “but I could not even stand”,
The old man said “sorry I am not going to disobey God”.
So they managed to bring her out of the car, somebody supported her on the right, somebody supported her on the left, she could hardly move.
But as the music was going on, she was moving a little to the right, a little to the left and suddenly the power of God hit her and she pushed the fellow on her right aside, pushed the fellow on her felt aside and was completely whole.
That is going to happen here tonight.
Another weapon available to Christians that some of you might not be aware of is a very simple weapon called shouting.
The Bible says in Psalm 47 v 1 He says clap your hands all ye people; shout unto God with a loud voice of triumph.
In Joshua 6 v 20 all that the children of Israel had to do to pull down the wall of Jericho was to shout.
Now let me hear somebody shout halleluiah!
Again I tell you another story, some years ago, they brought a woman to the headquarters and she said for years, that any time she eats anything she will vomit.
The doctors have tried everything just to help her keep down any little food; if she drank water she will vomit it. And they brought her for prayers.
And just about as we were about praying, we started by saying let everybody shout halleluiah! As she shouted halleluiah! She vomited a worm and as she vomited the worm, the sickness disappeared.
Whatever it is the Devil has planted in you shall be pushed out as you shout another halleluiah!
Weapon number three, that is available to Christians only is the name of Jesus.
Because according to Philippians 2 v 9-11 the Bible says God has given Him a name, that is above every other name; that at the name of Jesus, every kneel should bow; of things in heaven, that includes agents, things that fly, of things on earth and of things underneath the earth.
It doesn’t matter where the demons are hiding they must bow to the name of Jesus.
In Act 16 v 16-18 the Bible tells us about a girl who was demon possessed and was following Paul and Silas about, disturbing them, the Bible says Paul turned around, commanded the demons to leave and the demon left immediately.
Last night, I was going to minister to my children after the Holy Communion service and as I was about to enter the car, there was these girl who was screaming and screaming and ran towards me.
So I told my boys to leave her alone and see what is happening.
Somebody who brought her said she was on youth service and something happened there and she lost her voice completely.
And she wrote on paper that if only she can get to Daddy G.O the demon who has taken over her voice will go out.
I said “that is a simple matter”,
Father in the mighty name of Jesus…, you know the kind of simple prayer, before I finished praying, she said Amen.
I turned round to enter into my car and she began to shout daddy, daddy.
And my son said she is already speaking, I just smiled.
The Bible says it is written at the name of Jesus Christ every knee must bow.
Do I hear someone shout the name of Jesus?
Another weapon that is available to Christians is the blood of Jesus.
Revelation 12 v 11 says they overcame the devil by the blood of the lamb.
The Bible tells us that God said when I see the blood, I will pass you by, I will make sure that the destroyer won’t come near you when I see the blood.
But if you are not a Christian of course you can’t use the blood.
I mean if they say they overcame the Devil by the blood of the Lamb and you belong to the Devil according John 8 v 44. If you belong to the Devil, you cannot overcome the Devil by using the blood.
But in case you don’t know how powerful the blood of Jesus is, I will give you two illustrations very quickly because it is very essential particularly when you are dealing with children who are having nightmares.
Because some of you have problems with children who will just cry out of dreams, it is because forces of darkness are tiring to oppress them, when they are going to bed just cover them in the Blood of Jesus.
Years ago, I think I have shared this with you before. A husband and wife were wondering what is going on because their money was disappearing.
The money of the husband disappeared, the money of the wife disappeared from the house. At first, the husband felt it was the wife who was stealing the money.
The husband said ‘what is wrong with this girl all she needed to do was to ask me for more’.
And the girl was wondering; if He gave me money for housekeeping and he stealing the money then what kind of man is he?’
One day the husband confronted the wife and the wife said “ I thought you are one stealing my money” And then the two of them came and I realized immediately that it was the devil misappropriating their finances.
So I told them from now on anytime you are putting your money anywhere, say I cover you in the blood of Jesus. From that moment onward they never lost anything.
Today I am decreeing that everything that is precious to you be covered in the blood of the Lamb.
I tell you another story just to let you know how powerful the blood is, I think this was 1977 we went to Ilorin for a congress and at that time there was a acute water shortage in the town
And so to get water to bathe, people had to go to one very dirty stream.
They brought water for me, the water was black, and you don’t have to be a scientist to know that there is danger in the water.
And then they gave me a bottle of Izal. “Sorry sir, this is all the water we have, but if you mix Izal with it, it will be safe for use, I thanked them and took the Izal.
I was about to pour it when the Lord spoke to me, “son, which is more powerful, Izal or my blood? I said your blood.
He said because I am going to send you to places in the world where the water will be worse than this and there will be no Izal, cover the water in my blood and take your bath.
I covered the water in the blood of Jesus and took my bath.
The fact that I am still alive today tells you the blood works.
Everything that could cause you any form of danger the blood will speak against it in Jesus name.
Thank you Father, the Lord says healing has started and He asked me to tell someone specifically that your joint shall be strong again.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone tonight, He said for years now, it has been one story of sorrow after another, He asked me to tell you, for years to come it will be story of glory and promotion.
The Lord said that there is someone here tonight, He said the incident that will begin your upward movement is about to happen.
Another weapon available to Christian is the word of God.
Because it is written Psalm 119 v 89 forever oh Lord Thy word is settled.
The Almighty God says in Psalm 1 v 1-3 He said if you stay away from sinners, from the ungodly, from scorners and you meditate on the word of God day and night, He said you will be like a tree planted by a rivers of water bringing forth its fruit in due season.
The word of God is a powerful weapon particularly against the devil.
You know very well in Mathew 4 v 1-11 that, that is the weapon Jesus used against the devil.
Each time the devil brings a temptation, Jesus said it is written.
The devil cannot contradict “it is written”, if it is written, it is written.
Do you know that it is written that It shall be well with you?
If you are a child of God it is written in Isaiah 3 v 10 “Say ye to the righteous it shall be well with him”.
So you can tell your neighbor your tomorrow will be alright.
I think it was 1981, I have become General Overseer and I was visiting our churches, kind of familiarization tour and at that time several of the youth were rejoicing because God has put us in position and I remembered we were going towards my village.
Suddenly the devil began to speak to me and said you are very popular now, it is better to die when you are popular than wait till the time when they won’t like you anymore, it is honeymoon time for you, if you go now it will be good.
And I knew it was the devil speaking and the word of God came out to me saying I will live, I will not die and I will declare the works of the Almighty God.
Do you know that less than five minutes after that we nearly had a horrible accident.
If the word of God has not come up to deal with the devil it will have finished me on the road at that time.
At that time the entire congregation of the Redeemed Christian church of God was less than one thousand. Suppose I had died then, look at what the devil saw and he wanted to prevent.
I am saying to every one of you here tonight, none of you will die; you will fulfill the purpose of God for your life.
So there are some weapons exclusive to everyone, sinners, Christian.
There are some weapons available to Christians alone.
And then there are some weapons exclusive to God’s servants.
There are some weapons that are exclusive to God’s servant, maybe I will just mention about two of them tonight.
One is prophesy:
Amos 3 v 7 says God will not do a thing without revealing it first to his servant the prophet.
1Samuel 3 v 19 says God will not allow the word of his prophet to fall to the ground,
Ezekiel 37 v 1 – 10 when the Almighty God wanted to bring dry bones back to life, He used his prophet.
He said to Ezekiel “can this dry bones live?”, Ezekiel said “Lord only you can tell”.
And God said alright you do the job for me; prophesy and as he prophesied to the dry bones, the dry bones came together, bones to bones, skin covered them but they were still dead.
So God said to Ezekiel, “son of man, prophesy again” and he did.
And suddenly, what used to be dry bones became a mighty army.
Tonight I want to prophesy into the life of someone here, I want to prophesy that it shall be well with you, I want to prophesy to you that God will answer all your prayers. I want to prophesy that your joy will over flow.
Another weapon available to the servant of God is what I called decrees:
You know the Bible says in Job 22 v 21-28, He says if you will satisfy certain conditions, then you will decree a thing and it will be established unto you, but when you go through the scriptures you will find that those who have used that weapon successfully are mainly, and I’m not saying exclusively, are the prophets of God.
For example, in 2 Kings 4 v 1-7 a widow came to Elisha and said, I am heavily in debt what shall I do?
The man of God said what do you have in the house?
She said a bottle of oil.
The man of God say okay go home; borrow empty vessels from your neighbors. Borrow not a few, lock the door on yourself and your son, and begin to pour that little oil you have into the vessel, and whenever one vessels is full, set it aside.
Read the passage when you get home, you will notice that Elisha didn’t even pray, you will notice he didn’t even say thus says the Lord, he simply decree that the oil will keep on multiplying and it kept on multiplying until there was no more vessels to contain it.
I want to decree to someone here tonight, that kind of blessing that will be more than sufficient, receive it tonight in Jesus name.
Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight He said I should reassure you, apparently He has told you that before, but He said I should reassure you that He is your backbone and because He is your backbone, nobody can break your back.
In 2 King 4 v 8-17, The Bible says there was this great woman of Shunem who has been taking care of Elisha.
And one day Elisha said woman “what can I do for you?”
The woman said I don’t need anything,
And then Elisha made some investigations and discovered that the woman was barren.
And he said to the woman, woman nine months from now you will have a son.
Now he didn’t prophesy, he didn’t say thus say the Lord, he merely issue a decree; woman, you will have a son nine month from now.
The woman said “man of God don’t deceive me,”
If you enjoy my food say thank you, don’t make a promise that cannot be fulfilled.
Because the woman was advanced in age, the husband was old. When you hear a prophesy the fulfillment of a prophesy is anchored on if you have enough faith to receive it, when it is a decree even your doubt is not going to stop it.
That is why I am decreeing tonight to every one of you here, this is the beginning of your greatness.
Maybe I should just leave that alone and move on to the weapons that are exclusive to God.
We have talked about weapons common to everybody, we have talked about weapons available to Christians, we have talked about weapon available to Gods ministers, now we are talking about weapons exclusive to God.
And it will amaze you that the principal one among the weapons available to God exclusively are children.
They are His number one’s weapon, that is why the text we read said children are the heritage of the Lord, the fruit of the womb are His rewards, as arrows in the hands of mighty.
He compares children to an arrow in the hand of the worrrior; He said just as an arrow is in the hand of the warriors, so are children in My hands.
And like in the passage I mentioned earlier, Psalm 8 v 2, He said out of the mouth of babes and suckling Thou hath ordained strength because of your enemies, to still your enemies and your avengers.
Whenever God wants to fight His enemies, His number one weapons are children.
Because they are surprise weapons.
In 1samuel 17 v 42-51 when Goliath saw David coming, he thought what kind of joke is this.
And God said ‘good, Goliath you are dead’.
If it had been a huge man, a big warrior, coming against Goliath, Goliath would have been more careful, but when he saw a little fellow coming, he said “this one?” This one is already dead
And God said good! I will surprise you.
In the Name that is above every other name, God will surprise all your adversaries.
You know the rest of the story. But there is something important that you need to take note of.
Mathew 18 v 10 Jesus Christ said. Be careful, don’t despise any of these little ones, He said because their angels have direct access to God.
Every child has at least one angel guiding him or her, every child.
I don’t know how many of you have seen angels before, I have seen them a couple of time, and I am telling you that angels are fearfully huge, as a matter of fact, if you see a true angel, the first thing he will say to you is fear not.
That is going to be statement number one, because nobody can see an angel for the first time, that will not be terrified, they can be huge.
You ask me how huge?, I give you and illustration; if you have ever seen an airplane, the biggest one before the current one is a 747, an angel can carry a 747 in the palm of his hands.
So if you know a man who can carry a trailer, let’s bring it low. If you know a man so big that he can carry a trailer in the palm of his hands and you see that man suddenly; I can assure you sir, no matter how courageous you are you will be afraid.
Now God says every child has an angel and every angel of each child has direct access to God, it is not because God considers a child to be such a terrific weapon, that is why He attaché an angel to each child.
You mess around with a child, the angel will deal with you and I am telling you don’t want to fight with an angel.
Children are weapons in the hands of God because many at times we older ones are too preoccupied or our hears are already dulled by sin,
So when God wants to speak, we don’t hear, but children their ears are still open, they don’t worry as we do.
So from time to time, God wants to send a message He will send it through a child 1 Samuel 3 v 1-10.
But probably one of the reasons why children are so powerful a weapon in the hands of God is because of their innocence; they have not yet sinned so when they pray nothing hinders their prayer.
Several years ago when my children were still very little, anytime I needed something urgently from God, I ask them to pray for me I tell them what to pray about, I know their prayers will not be hinder the answers will come.
Thank you Father, the Lord says there is someone here tonight; He said the forces pushing you back have been relocated.
Isaiah 59 v 1-2 says the hands of the Lord is not shorten that He cannot saved, neither is His ear heavy that He cannot hear, He said but your sins have separated between you and your God that you won’t hear.
Sins can stop the prayer of the elderly but the children don’t know sin, they are innocent, when it is time to praise Him, they praise Him uninhibited.
They know how to dance before God because they are not looking at anyone and they don’t care who is looking at them. And God is always close to those who praise Him as you know very well.
When they cry to God, the angel carries the prayers straight to heaven and straight away the answers comes.
That is why the Bible says blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.
Children are blessing carrier, wherever they go they carry blessings.
You can go through the scriptures Genesis 21 v 1- 6 when Isaac was born; he put an end to the sorrow of the parent.
1samuel 2 v 1 -10, when Samuel was born, the mocker of his mother was silenced. J
Judges 13 v 2-5, when Samson came on the scene, deliverance began to come for the children of Israel.
Genesis 50 v 18 – 20, Joseph was a child in the family that became a preserver, not only of his own nation but of people of the world.
That is why I have a word or two for you parents tonight.
Parents I want you to watch out; because you may not know it, there may be a Joseph already in your life.
In Genesis 37 v 3- 11 the Bible says when Joseph began to have those wonderful dreams, the brothers were angry but the father observed the sayings.
Watch out there may be a Joseph already in the family, watch out there may be a Samson already in the house.
Judges 13 v 24- 25 the Bible says the spirit of God began to move Samson at times, he was still young, but if the parents have been observant they would have noticed that the spirit is already on this child.
I know quite a few among my children and their friends, who had been speaking in tongue from the age of five.
The spirit of God came down when they had one camp meeting here, the spirits of God came down and these children were baptized in the Holy spirits, it was amazing.
The teachers didn’t believe what was happening but when I listen to them I know this is God.
There may be a Samson already in the house, which is why you need to please take extra care of these children, draw them close to God, train they in the way they should go.
Proverbs 22 v 6 train up a child in the way he should go when he is old he won’t be able to depart.
Remember any child that you didn’t not bring up properly in the way of the Lord will cause you sorrow in the future.
Take good care of these children train them in the way of the Lord then in your old age, you will have cause to rejoice.
If you don’t train them in the way of the Lord, if you say you are going to church and you leave your children at home and you said well he is already a youth, he should be able to decide for himself, if you do not bring these people up properly in the way of the Lord you will be asking for trouble.
My prayer is that in your old age your children will be a blessing to you not a curse.
Remember what Joshua said in the book of Joshua 24 v 15, he said as for me and mine house, we shall serve the Lord, not me alone, as for me and my house!
I’m appealing again to all parents, bring these children up in the way of the Lord, it is important. If you allow them to drift, the result will not be pleasant at all.
Now as for your children, just a word for you too.
Exodus 20 v 1 2 says honor your father and your mother that your days may be long.
Do you know the implication of that?
The implication is that if you honor your parent you will live long, it means the children who will not honor his or her parents are likely to die young.
I pray for all children who are here tonight, none of you will die before your time.
Children please listen to me carefully; there will be occasions where your parent will say no to certain things you want to do and you think they are being too hard, they may not tell you all the reasons, it is because of the things they have experienced, it is because of the scars they are bearing, it is because of the things they have done in the past and the repercussion that they are still suffering.
When your parents said, this is the boundary, please don’t go beyond the boundary.
And the Lord will bless you as a result in Jesus name.
Now Ecclesiastes 12 v 1 stated clearly, He said remember now thy creator in the days of thy youth.
When is the day to remember your creator?
When is the time to be close to your creator?
In the days of thy youth, when you are young, that is when you should move to creator of heaven and earth, when you are young that is when you should run towards the Almighty God.
There will be friends trying to turn you away from the way of the Lord.
The Bible says when sinners entice you, consent thou not, if they say let’s do it this way tell them no!
“I am a child of God. Am an arrow in the hands of the Almighty God, I know where I am going, and I will arrive, I will reach my goal.”
So shall it be with all you children in Jesus name.
Like I shared with some of you yesterday Ecclesiastes 11 v 9 says if you don’t want to take the advice of your parent, if you don’t want to live within the limitation of the Christian upbringing, if you want to be free to do whatever you like, the Bible says go ahead; enjoy yourself, fool around, sow your wild oats, do whatever you want, drink, smoke, take drugs, fornicate, do whatever you want in your youth.
He said but remember you will pay one day.
Any child who says I don’t want to be limited, I want to be free, I want to do whatever I like should remember the Proverb of the elders.
You know in the olden days, chicken in the farm are allowed to roam freely, they called them free range.
The mother hen will say to the little chick, “stay close to me, don’t stray”
And the little chick will say why?
Why do you want to hinder my freedom, let me stray.
The little chick doesn’t know there are eagles overhead looking for chicks for dinner.
I pray that forces of darkness hovering over your life trying to devour you will not succeed in Jesus name.
Children obey your parent, honor them and you will live long, remember your creator now in the day of your youth before you get into trouble, remember your creator.
Don’t join those who say they want unlimited freedom; unlimited freedom will only bring you into casualty.
Take my advice
Do you know you are not an arrow in the hands of God unless you are one of his children?
If you are not a child of God then you are not an arrow.
But there is an opportunity to anyone who wants to become the child of a living God, because according to John 1v 11- 12, the Bible says He came unto his own but His own received Him not, but as many as believe Him to them He gave the power to be sons of God.
If you are willing to receive Jesus Christ tonight, you will become the child of the living God and you will become an arrow in the child of the Almighty Himself.
So what do I need to do to become a child of the living God?
Very simple, you come to Him, you call on Him and say Father I am surrendering my life unto you, please cleanse me in your blood, please wash me in your blood, let your blood wash away all my sins and I will serve you for the rest of my life.
It is as simple as that, the moment you call on Him for salvation He will save your soul.
So I am going to give an opportunity to anyone tonight who will want to surrender his or her life to Jesus should come and do so.
Please remember if you claim that you are a child of God and you are still living in sin then you are deceiving yourself, because the Bible is clear, he that is born of God does not commit sin.
If you are here and you are still living in sin and you want to become a child of God come now.
Pray as you come ask God to have mercy on you, asks God to cleanse you in his blood, ask Him to make you a child of the living God today, call on Him.
The rest of us, shall we please stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them; that the one who saved our soul will save their soul also.
Intercede for them; ask that the Almighty Saviour to save the soul of everyone of them and to restore every backslider among them back to Himself
….In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Eternal Rock of ages I want to say thank, I want to bless your Holy name. Thank you for your word, I want to thank you for all these your children who have responded to the Altar call, Father you promised that whosoever will come unto you, you will in no wise cast out, Father they have come unto you now, Father please receive them in Jesus name.
Forgive them in Jesus name, let your blood wipe away their sins in Jesus name, save their souls tonight and write their names in the book of life.
In Jesus name and Lord God Almighty the grace to serve you from now on and forever give to them in Jesus name.
Please Lord from this moment onward anytime they call you on you, answer them by fire in Jesus name. Let them become arrows in your mighty hands in Jesus name.
Thank you Almighty God, for in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen.
Now those of you who have come forward let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Now I am rejoicing with you tonight for two major reasons;
Reason number one because of you right now according to the word of God, Jesus is dancing in heaven because you have come to Him, and that is very wonderful.
And then the second reason why I am rejoicing with you, is that from now on by the grace of God, I will be praying for you and you will be receiving miracle that you didn’t even ask for, you will know that there is somebody somewhere praying for you and that somebody is me.
So I am going to need your name your address and your prayer request.

Prayer for those born in the month of May
Father, I want to thank you for your children born in the month of May, these children born in the month of grace must be very, very special to you, therefore Father I pray that for every one of them you will be gracious in Jesus name.
In the morning show them favor, in the afternoon show them favor, in the evening show them favor, in the night time show them favor, all the days of their lives let them enjoy your favor and let them serve you till the very end.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
By the grace of God if Jesus tarries, next month we will be discussing the WONDERS OF WORSHIP.
When you worship the Almighty God appropriately, He gets up from His throne and when God arises his enemies scatter.
So next month it is going to be an extraordinary Holy Ghost service as we discuss the WONDER WORSHIP, l’m sure you will not only come you will bring your friends and relatives in Jesus name.
Tonight we are discussing the WONDERS OF HIS FAVOR.
The evangelist who spoke before me had already preached my sermon.
So l’m delighted that gradually the day is coming when I too will come to the Holy Ghost night just to enjoy myself.
My children will preach when they finish, I will come and say God bless you all and then we go home.
How many of you will say amen to that? Because it is interesting that everyone who spoke; the one who preached, the one who prayed, the one who did one thing or the other all kept on talking about Esther I wonder where they got to see my sermon note!
I think the Holy Spirit must have told them what I wanted to talk about.
Esther 5 v 1 -3 Now it came to past on the third day that Esther put on her royal apparel and stood in the inner court of the Kings house, over against the king house and the King sat upon his royal throne in the King’s house, over against the gate of the house. And it was so when the King saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in His sight.
Somebody will obtain favor in the sight of the King of kings tonight.
And the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand, so Esther drew near and touched the top of the scepter. Then said the King said unto her, what will thou Queen Esther and what is thy request, it shall be given to thee to the half of the kingdom.
The first thing we noticed there is that the king saw Esther.
It is my prayer today, that the Almighty God will see you in this crowd.
And just like the preacher before me said; when the time for you to be favored of God comes, the first things is that wherever you are, favor will locate you.
In Genesis 18 v 1 – 5 Abraham was siting in front of his tent, he was at home and favor located him.
In 1 Samuel 16 v 11- 13 David was in the farm looking after his father sheep and favor located him there.
In Exodus 3 v 1 – 4 Moses was at the back side of the desert and favor located him there.
In Matthew 9 v 9, Mathew was at the customs; he was collecting customs in the market place and favor located him there.
In Mark 3 v 1-5 there was a man in the synagogue who had a withered hand, he was in the place of worship and favor located Him there.
In Mark 5 v 1-15 the mad man of Gardereans was at the grave yard and favor located him there.
So whether you are at home or in the farm, or in the office, or in the market place, or in the church, the favor of the Almighty God will locate you tonight in Jesus name.
I will tell you a couple of stories quickly, since the preacher before me has done the preaching, maybe I will just tell you true testimonies.
There was a funeral ceremony and there is this sister who had been praying to God for a future partner, and there was this brother who went to attend the funeral and saw this sister whose relative had just died deep in sorrow and looked at her and said;
“If this girl is as beautiful as this when she is sad, how beautiful will she be when she is happy”?
“And said before I leave this place, I must meet this fellow who is going to be my future wife.”
Favor can locate you even at the grave yard.
We went to Haiti to conduct a crusade several years ago and as we were preaching they were broadcasting the sermon over their radio.
And the Lord said as I was preaching “there is someone listening to me now who is impotent and the Lord asked me to tell you He has restored your potency.”
The man was lying down on his bed from his house far away from where we were, heard that word on the radio and suddenly his manhood jumped to action.
Favor located him at home!
He came running to the crusade ground; we had finished and gone to the hotel room.
Suddenly the door of the hotel burst open and the man ran in. Saying “I am the one!”
There is someone here tonight; the favor of God will locate you.
The first time I travelled outside Nigeria, outside Africa and I went to Canada for the world conference of applied Mathematician.
I knew nobody there.
I knew no kind of food I will be eating there. My wife was at home praying. God take care of your son.
And somebody went to see the list of the mathematician … for the conference and as he was reading down the name, he saw a name ENOCH ADEBOYE.
He said we never can tell it might be a French name.
Some of you know I have gone to some French countries that they call me by various names, some of them call me ADEBOY some call me Adiboye.
So he located the room where I was to be, he said when I get there I will speak in Yoruba if he answered then I know he must be a Nigerian.
He knocked at the door I said who is that he said “emi ni (It’s I)” I said “wole” (come in) before the day was out I was eating pounded yam in Canada.
There is somebody here today the favor of God will locate you.
The second thing was that the king didn’t just see Esther; he focused his attention on her.
If you know the king we are talking about here he was a very busy king. Ahasuerus wasn’t an ordinary king, he had dominion over a hundred and twenty nations, he was busy, but when he looked in the direction of Esther, it wasn’t just a passing glance; it was a glance that becomes a focus.
When the day comes for God to favor you, He will not just see you, He will focus on you.
In John9 v 1 the Bible talked about a man who was born blind, this man had been blind for more than forty years, but when his day of favor came; the Bible says Jesus saw him.
It was not an ordinary seeing it was a focusing; it was God directing the attention of the whole universe in one particular spot.
In John 5v 2-6 the Bible says there was a multitude gathered at the pool of Bethesda and there was a man who been there for 38 years and the Bible say Jesus saw him, it wasn’t an ordinary seeing, it was a focusing.
He was singled out of the multitude for attention.
Tonight in the name that is above every other name; God will focus His attention on you.
Some of you will probably remember this man and some of you knew him personally; I think he’s had two PhDs and couldn’t get a job for more than six years.
Then when they brought him for prayers, he was looking almost like a madman, you won’t belief he ever went to school because he had suffered a lot, we introduced him to Jesus, he gave his life to Jesus Christ.
Before he travelled between here and a town called Kishi, the people in his local government had been looking for him to offer him a job.
Suddenly they became interested in this man who had written several applications and never got a reply.
Today am talking to someone; that answer you are expecting will be a good one in Jesus name.
You will remember the story of a sister, I have told this story several times before.
She came to one of the Holy Ghost services and the word of God came and said that there is someone here, there is a girl here, if your mother didn’t allow you to marry, she will die within a week so you can marry.
She said amen. She got home, told the mother and the mother came angrily to my office.
‘You are the people teaching these people wrong things saying that I am going to die.”
I said “when did I say that?
She said “my daughter came home and told me I am going to die”.
I said “daughter, did I mention your name?
I said don’t mind her mama, that is how they claim what doesn’t belong to them”.
Mama said I didn’t know that is the way it is.
She said alright daughter gets out, so the daughter left and mama turned to me and said
“Pastor is it true that the mother will die if …?
I said “mama it is not you but what God said will come to pass.
The person concerned not you, the person concerned if she will not let her daughter marry she will die within seven days.
She said “it is not that I don’t want her to marry but the problem is if she marries, who will take care of me?
She is the one taking care of me now.”
I said mama that is no problem, I will tell her husband that whatever she has been doing for you before she gets married, she can continue to do so, they will look after you.
She said okay “she can marry”.
Within a week this sister who has been in the church only for so many years, within a week the man to marry her suddenly looked in her direction and said this fellow here should be the one I will marry.
Whatever had been blocking the eyes of those who will help you, the Almighty God will remove it today in Jesus name.
Number three when the time comes for God to favor you; you will suddenly see that the King of kings will become involved with your case.
The king saw Esther standing, saw her, he could have said maybe the queen is just have some time but the king decided to suspend all that he was doing so that he can be involved in the affairs of the queen.
You see it is one thing to notice you; it is another thing to go further and decide I want to be involved.
In the story mentioned earlier on in John 9 v 2 -7 Jesus saw this blind man, but He didn’t stop at seeing him, He went further, He got involved; He spat on the ground, made some mud, anointed the eyes of the man, told him to go and wash in the pool of Siloam.
He went and washed and came back seeing.
In the story of John 5 v 6-14, the man who had been sick for thirty eight years. Jesus got involved; He went to him and said will you be made whole?
When the man began to tell the story, Jesus said alright just get up. Jesus got involved!
In fact Jesus came back again the second time to meet him at the temple and said go and sin no more, so that something worse may not happen to you.
He got involved!
In Act 3 v 1-8 when Peter and John were on their way to the temple and they saw this man who was born lame asking for alms.
If you read that story very well, under normal circumstances Peter should have just gone on, because he had no money to give this man, he said “silver and gold I have none.”
But he decided to get involved; he told the man to rise up and walk, when the man didn’t get up he grabbed him by the hand.
He got involved!
Tonight the Almighty God will get involved with your situation.
Several years ago, I was travelling to Ilorin and I got to the city, my driver was driving and I looked to my right and I saw a girl sobbing, weeping terribly and I was wondering why is this girl weeping.
I could have gone on and say well it’s not none of my business.
But the day to favor the girl has come, so I told my driver please stop let’s reverse, and find out why this girl is crying.
I pray for someone here today the Almighty God will get involved with your situation.
I beckon to the girl, why are you crying?
She said my mother sent me on an errand and I lost the money,
She said she will kill me today.
How much was the money?
It was none of my business but because God decided to favor her, I put my hand into my pocket and gave her the money and I could see her flying away in Joy.
You see when God gets involved with your situation he wipes tears away from your eye, he replaces your sorrow with joy.
I prophesy to someone here today before the end of this month you will have something to sing about.
Number four, when the kings saw Esther he raised a scepter towards her.
Now raising the scepter towards here is an invitation
Com’on here my queen.,
He beckoned to her, he is saying come.
You see when the day of favor comes for you the Almighty God will beckon to you and say; my son come here, my daughter come here.
And when you get a beckoning from the Almighty God, you will know yourself that things are about to change.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said from all indications are that you are cornered; He said I will get you out.
Daddy asked me to tell someone, He said I have told you before and I am telling you again, that abandon project shall resurrect.
In Exodus 3 v 3-4 The Bible said Moses was at the back side of the desert, he has been going there regularly for forty years, looking after the sheep of his father in law.
But on the day that his destiny was going to be turned; a fire was burning and the bush was not consumed then Moses looked at and said what a great site.
I will turn aside and see and the Almighty God called to him and said Moses, from that moment onward the history of Moses was never the same again.
In 1 Samuel 16 v 11-13 I could imagine what happened when David was in the bush looking after his father’s sheep.
And suddenly somebody came from home and said
He said “yes, what is it?”
‘You are wanted at home’.
‘I don’t know but there is one prophet that came to our house, I don’t know what he has been discussing, but they say I should go and bring you and bring you horridly’.
When your day of favor comes, God gives you a beckoning.
In Mark 10 v 46-52 the bible tells us the story of Bartimeaus the blind beggar.
He has been crying for a while, some of the people asked him to shut up, he heard the good news, be of good cheer he calleth thee.
I am praying for someone here today, in a way that you have not heard from God before, you will hear from him today.
Several years ago, when I was a postgraduate student at the University of Lagos 1969 to be precise.
My friend was doing postgraduate in Geography as I was doing in mathematics.
And he was doing his research on the coast line of Lagos.
So he was collecting sand samples from all the coastline and he wanted to go to Ebute metta to collect some samples.
Since we were friends and I was free, I decided to escort him.
When we got to Ebute metta, We saw a big signboard in front of a very little church.
The church was made with boardoff.
The signed board was big;
The Redeem Christian Church of God.
I looked at the signboard, I looked at the church. I turned to my friend and said big name kills small dog and we all laughed and we left.
I didn’t know God was already giving me a beckon; four years later when somebody invited me to come to The Redeemed Christian Church of God for the first time,
He said there is a little church in Ebute metta, God is performing miracles there.
I said “what is the name of the church?”
He said “The Redeemed Christian Church of God”,
I said “I know that church; the church with the big signed board with the boardoff.
He said “yes”.
I said glory be to God.
I will go and see.
You never can tell how God is going to beckon to you, but He is already beckoning that is why you are here tonight.
He is already saying to you your day of favor has come.
I know there is someone here particularly who is coming for the first time, they have been inviting you but you have refused to come.
But all of a sudden, somehow you said I think I will go tonight.
Is anybody like that here?
If you are coming for the first time, wave your hand let me see;
Alright, let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Because you are about to get a first time miracle in Jesus name.
And when God beckons you it is to bring you close to His power.
The scepter that the king stretched towards Esther was the symbol of the king’s power.
And the Bible says Esther went close to the king and touched the scepter.
When you touched the scepter of the King of kings, not only will your own history begin to change, the history of your entire family, the history of your entire people will begin to change.
At the same time, I am believing God because you are here to night not only will your history as an individual change; the history of your family will change, the history of Nigeria will change and the history of any nation that you represent will change also in Jesus name.
According to Esther 4 v 11 if you go before the king uninvited and he does not lift that scepter towards you, you will die.
The fact that he lifted the scepter to Esther changed death to life for Esther.
And there is someone here tonight, listen to me very carefully; very soon you are going to testify that God disappointed those who thought you are going to die.
I can tell you a story on that God just reminded me; we were in the very first auditorium in a Holy Ghost night like this and the word of God says
There is someone here the plan of the enemy is to kill you but because you came tonight death has been cancelled.
Of course everybody said amen
But nobody knew who we were talking about.
But there was a woman there; as she was going home there were those people who owe her money.
They owed her a lot of money and they knew they couldn’t pay.
They arranged for her to be kidnapped and killed.
And they grabbed her, bound her, gag her and threw her into the back of a car and began to drive her towards Badagry so that they can go and kill her there.
On the way they came to a police checkpoint.
And of course they knew what is expected so they already got the money ready.
But because God said death had been cancelled, the police man there said
“No! I don’t want your money; I want to see what is in your booth?”
They increased the amount of money, the police said
“No, I want to see what is in your booth”
Then they began to run away
And then he opened the booth and found the woman there bound and gagged and they released her.
There is someone here tonight the grave will wait a long time for you in Jesus name.
Let me say it one more time, all those who are expecting your burial shall be disappointed in Jesus name.
In Mark 5 v 35-42 when Jarius came in contact with the scepter of the most high God the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
The sorrow in her family changed to joy.
By the time Jesus arrived the people were wailing.
By the time Jesus entered into that house suddenly weeping became joy.
I pray for someone here today, there will be no gathering for weeping for a long time.
When you come in contact with the scepter of the most high God, dramatic changes will come because the scepter represent the power of God.
In 2 king 2 v 9-22, the city of Jericho had known sorrow, they had known bareness, they are known curses, they had known death, they had known everything that was evil.
Until the Almighty God said well the time to favor has come
And He sent a prophet to them and suddenly the whole nation began to have tremendous joy because they had contact with the power of God.
When I finally found myself in The Redeemed Christian Church of God I was like a fish out of water because all my life I had either worship in the cathedral or the chapel at the university.
That is if ever went to Church, and everything to that point had already been done quietly, decently and in order.
I got to The Redeemed Christian Church of God everything was alright until they began to pray.
When the man who started the prayer said in the name of Jesus, the man next to me said amen so loudly I nearly ran out of the place.
But something timed me and very soon I gave my life to Jesus.
Very soon I began to hear about the baptism in the Holy Spirit, very soon I began to learn about the gift of the Holy Spirit, very soon I began to know more and more about the power of the Most High God and very soon that power began to operate through me.
I am praying for everybody here tonight, as you leave here, you will go with the power of the Most High God.
When the power of God begins to operate through you, it is not for you alone; it is for your people.
It is for the needy, it is to help others who might need deliverance, who might need healing, who might need all kinds of miracles.
I’ll tell you one or two cases;
I went to Port Harcourt at the invitation of the full gospel business men international and we had a wonderful program.
I think they asked me to speak on ‘The New Anointing’.
I told them what the anointing can do in the life of a man.
That night they had to smuggle me out of the back door because everybody wanted to touch the man of God.
I managed to get into the car, but as I was driving away there was a woman who was desperate, she ran towards the car, took her handkerchief and rubbed it against the car and took it home and said there is power here now.
When she got home, she discovered that while she was away one of her sisters had gone mad, completely mad.
It took six men to hold her down.
When she got there, she said move out of the way, I have power in my hand now;
You know it will be unto you according to your faith
She laid the handkerchief on the girl and immediately she became normal again.
When you are leaving here, you will not leave empty handed, I say you will leave here with power in your hand.
But it gets more beautiful when Esther got to the king.
The king said Esther,
What is your request?
I thought when you go to a big man, you should be the one who should say please sir, this is what I have come for.
But here we find the king volunteering to help.
When your day of favor comes the Almighty God will volunteer to help you.
Esther, what is your request even to the half of the kingdom.
The king volunteered help.
Like in the case of John 5 v 2-9 that we mentioned earlier on; Jesus went there to that man who was by the pool of Bethesda for thirty eight years and said
Would you be made whole?
It was a volunteered help.
When God decides to help you and you are not even the one asking for help then you will know that your day of joy has come.
The Lord says I should tell someone here tonight; simply, that your sun is about to rise.
In Luke 7 v 11-15 tells us the story of the widow of Nain whose son was dead and they were going towards the burial ground.
They were not praying, they were not asking anybody for help.
What help do you want to ask for somebody who is already dead?.
But Jesus came and stopped the procession.
The woman didn’t know who was there, but Jesus knew her.
Jesus said to her weep not.
I am going to do something about your case;
Jesus volunteered help and very, very soon after that the boy that was dead was back to life.
The woman who was drowning in sorrow was now leaping for joy because God volunteered help.
You know occasionally you get to a stage in your situation that you don’t even know how to pray anymore.
I don’t know if there is anybody like that here but I know situations when you have prayed and prayed and you said God over to you.
If you want to do anything do it, if you don’t want it over to you.
And God volunteered help.
I will tell you two stories very quickly at least one of it will be appropriate for someone here tonight.
You have heard the story before, we held a program at Tafa Balewa square and as we were about to round up the Almighty God impressed upon me to ask everybody to ask for something special
And there was this lady there who had been praying for a husband for years until she past the age of child bearing.
So when I said, pray for anything you want.
She said to God I won’t bother you; when I thought if I get a husband it will have any meaning, that time is past, so if you want do anything, if you don’t that’s alright,
I will worship you till I die.
Two weeks later somebody came up and said thus says the Lord you are to be my wife,
She looked at the man and said you better go and pray again
The man said what do you mean?
The woman said don’t you want children?
The man said what do you mean by that?
She said because she has past child bearing age.
The man said glory be to God you must be the one,
How can it be me?
The man said I am a widower I already got children, I don’t want more children; all I want is somebody who will be a mother to my children, so you must be the one.
To cut a long story short, they got married, the month they got married, the woman became pregnant; when she was going to deliver she gave birth to a set of twins; two boys.
Because God volunteered help!
There is somebody here today God will volunteer help for you.
In that journey to Canada that I was talking about, after we have had our conference, they decide that we should relax at least, so they took us to government farm, incidentally it was the month of May.
They took us to a government house and there they prepared a banquet for us.
All manners of food were there and there was a section there the grass was very green and we were eating outside.
So I took my food and walked away from the crowd and wanted to sit on the grass.
So I can have a picnic all by myself and as I was moving away one white man followed me, he must have been there when I presented my paper.
As I touched the ground it was very cold so I quickly decided against sitting down,
And the white man said you want to sit down?
I said yes but it is cold,
He removed his jacket spread it on the floor.
And said sit down
I said no sir, and I heard God speak clearly; seat down you are the son of the King of king.
There is somebody here today, the one God will use to make your joy to be full will volunteer help this week.
I sat on the jacket and I enjoyed my meal because the Almighty God decided that someone should volunteer help.
Number seven, before Esther asked, the king already said the answer is settled.
When God decides to favor you, it guarantees an answer to all your prayers. When the time of favor comes all prayers will be answered.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said the anointing that will take you to the next level has been released.
You know in Isaiah 65 v 24 the first time I read this passage, I could hardly believe it.
God said before they call I will answer.
I said this must be big.
Do you know God is saying to someone here tonight that before you pray the answer will come?
And the king did not say I will grant your request, he is saying I will give more than your request, even up to half of my kingdom.
In 2Cornicle 1 v 6-15 when Solomon found favor with God and God said ask anything you want.
Do you know after Solomon had asked for wisdom and understanding, God said is that all? He said what you didn’t ask for I will add.
In 2 King 4 v 1-7 all that the widow of the son of the prophet asked for was enough money to pay all her debt, but the Almighty God provided so much for her that after she paid her debt she had enough to live on for the rest of her life.
God can do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think.
When you read 1 Samuel 2 v 21 it will amaze you that all that Hannah asked for was a son.
God gives me a son and I will give him back to you.
But at the end of the day after God gave her Samuel and she handed him back to God.
God gave him five additional children.
She asked for one, she got six.
It doesn’t matter what you asked for tonight, the Almighty God will give you much more than you are asking for.
I have always told this funny story, some years ago we were going A-fishing in December as we normally do.
And on the way we saw a signboard that says Turkey for sale.
And I turned to my children; do you know that your dad never had turkey for Christmas?
And they all laughed,
It was in those days when things were still very beautiful.
Things will get better. And we forgot about it because in those days if you get a chicken for Christmas, that is good enough but Turkey! Where is it coming from?
So we went for Go A fishing, by the time we returned there were three turkeys waiting for me at home, I was amazed!
So when I went to church the following Sunday, I told the congregation the story.
I said I didn’t pray, I was just saying I never had turkey for Christmas before but now I had three turkeys at home and I told them this is not an invitation to lunch.
Am not asking you to come home and eat my turkey, before I returned from the church the number of Turkey had increased to seven.
I decree to somebody today, you will knock on one door, seven will open.
Let me conclude, because tonight is a night when God will answer prayer,
So the sermon will not be long so that we can have a long time to pray,
The kings said I am willing to give you half of my kingdom.
When you find favor with God, He makes the kingdom of heaven available to you.
Ephesians 2 v 5-8 makes it clear it by grace that you are saved.
John 6 v 44 says no man can come to Jesus except God the father draws him.
If you don’t find favor with God, no matter the preaching….
In John 15 v 16 Jesus Christ said clearly that you have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, if you are chosen by God, it is act of favor…..
Mark 22v 40 says many are called but few are chosen.
Do you know that when an altar call is given for salvation and something within you says go forward go and surrender your life to Jesus Christ.
It can only mean one thing; God has decided to favor you.
When I look at my own life for example, by the time I look at my situation when they were making altar calls, I mean I didn’t give my life to Jesus Christ the very first day I was in church.
In fact for quite a while I was just laughing at them;
What did they know, I have a problem, tell me how much I will pay you, pray let the problem be solved and let me go.
But one day the Almighty God spoke to me and said
They are not asking you to surrender to them, they are asking you to surrender to your Maker, with all your degrees, you don’t have what they have and that is true,
When I looked at the faces of the few of us then I could see peace, I could see the joy of the Lord, they didn’t have money but they had the peace of the Almighty God.
They had the peace of God that passes understanding.
Something within me said ‘forget your pride go forward, surrender your life to Jesus Christ’.
Today I’m grateful to the Almighty God that He pulled me forward, that He brought me out of my rottenness.
And brought me to Jesus Christ, when I looked back and look at where am I now, I know that I must be favored of the Lord.
When we give the altar call and you say am not coming, maybe you are not one of those that God has chosen to favor, but if He has chosen to favor you, when you hear the word there is something within you that says go, surrender your life to Jesus.
After all, all the years you have been living in sin what have you achieved?
You may have money but let me tell you the truth; money can buy a bed it can’t buy a sleep.
If it buys you drug to sleep, it can’t buy you sweet dreams.
It can buy you a house but the house can be hot so that coming in and going out becomes a nightmare.
But when you come to Jesus Christ, you have the peace of God that passes all understanding,
Only those who are favored by the Lord are drawn Jesus Christ salvation.
He said no man can come unto me except my father draws Him.
And I know there are some people here tonight that the Almighty God is already drawing
Saying, come give your life to Jesus, come and taste how good he is.
If you are one of them, come forward and I can pray for you and then you will begin to enjoy the favor of the most High God.
So if you want to give your life to Jesus begin to come now.
And as you come begin to pray to the Almighty God, ask Him to have mercy on you, ask Him to please save your soul, ask Him to please become your Lord and savior,
Promise Him that you will serve Him for the rest of your life.
The rest of us let’s stretch our hands towards these people, and pray for them and intercede for them that the Almighty God will have mercy on them, that He will save their soul, that He will forgive them their sins and that He will clean them in His blood.
That He will give them a brand new beginning today.
…In Jesus mighty name we have prayed,
Father Almighty I want to thank you for your word, I want to thank you for all these your children who have come forward tonight.
Father please remember your promise that whosoever come unto you, you will in no wise cast out, they have come unto you now, Father, please receive them in Jesus name.
Please forgive them tonight in Jesus name, let your blood wash away all their sins tonight in Jesus name.
Even as you are saving their souls tonight, please write their names into the book of life in Jesus name.
And please don’t let them ever go back into the world again in Jesus name.
From this moment onward please anytime they call on you please answer them by fire in Jesus name.
Thank you my father and my God in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Now I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight, because from now by the grace of God I will be praying for you and very soon you will be receiving all manners of miracles and you will know there is somebody somewhere praying for you.
That somebody will be me I promise you, so I am going to need your names, am going to need your address and your prayer request at: www.rccg.org

THE WONDER OF WORSHIP
7th of June, 2013
Lift your hands to the Almighty God and begin to worship Him. Give Him glory, give Him honor, give Him adoration.
He is worthy to be praised, He is worthy to be adored, He is worthy to be magnified. Praise His holy name, give Him glory, give Him honor, give Him adoration. Bless His holy name. Worship Him, Worship the King of kings, worship the Lord of lords, bless His holy name, there is no One like Him, give Him glory, give Him Honor, give Him adoration.
The Bible says we are to make a joyful noise to the Lord, tonight the best way to make a joyful noise unto the Lord is for you to think of a song of your own, I think of a song of my own. You sing to Him yours, I sing to Him mine; we combine all these song and anyone listening to us will think we are making a noise but God is listening to the song of each and every One of us.
I want you to think of a song and just go ahead and begin to sing to the Almighty God…..
In Jesus mighty name we worship

Let someone shout a big halleluiah!
By the grace of God next month as you have been told the theme of our Holy Ghost service is the WONDERS OF DIVINE BLESSINGS.
If you missed any Holy Ghost Service this year, don’t miss that of July that is of course if you want divine blessings.
I also want to announce that the elders of this Church and elders of any Church will be gathering together with the elders of any church, will be gathering together for their 12TH Annual elders congress and praise night on the 21th – 22nd of this month.
It will be exciting to be present where elders are praising God and worshipping Him, because that is what the twenty-four elders are doing in heaven, and their theme for this year elder’s congress is “BE YE HOLY”.
I think the elders should talk about that because they are closer home than many of us. All elders are cordially invited.
The Friday program begins at 6pm, the Sunday program continues at 10am.
We want to thank the Almighty God for the presentation of His children tonight, they all did very well, glory be to God. Maybe if I take it zone by zone, we might get a kind of summary.
Zone one; they kept to time, they spent exactly 35 minutes allotted to them, the choir was okay, the choir was good.
The sermon was okay; the only correction which is common to all of them is their definition of worship, they assumed that when we talk of wonders of worship, they assume that automatically the wonders of the ship of God, but all we said is wonders of worship.
And so in their definition of worship they were defining the worship of God instead of worship.
Because not everybody worship God, there are people who worship idols, there are people who worship their wives, there are people who worship their husbands, there are people who worship their children, their people who worship money, believe it or not, there are people who worship bicycles.
I can tell you that because when I was at Ilesha Grammar school some few years ago, we had a teacher who had a bicycle; he loves the bicycle so much that when He gets to a muddy part of the road, he comes down from the bicycle and carries the bicycle across.
Ask your neighbor what do you worship?
There are people who worship other things other than God. They should probably have stopped by saying worship is preferential treatment, preferential approach etc and then go on to say that however tonight we want to focus on worship of God that is the way it should have been.
Now apart from these common mistakes they all did very well.
The first preacher for example among several things made known to us in his very well researched presentation that when you worship the Almighty God:
•1. Men become powerless over you; when a man knows how to worship God, men become powerless over them, a very good example is Nebuchadnezzar •2. That when you worship God, God will break protocol to help you; it is against protocol in Israel for any priest to touch a leper, but when a leper came and worship Jesus Christ he touched him. I’m praying that as you worshipped God tonight, God will break protocol to attend to you. •3. When you worship God, your story will change; when you worship God, all those of you who have been attending our various programs since Monday Divine Encounter Shiloh hour, Holy Communion. You will have seen the truth of what He said; your financial situation will change. When you worship God, you will change from being barren to being fruitful, when you worship God; Pharaoh will be compel to let you go. Situation always change whenever we worship God.
Three mighty points and I think we should give the Lord a big round of applause for that presentation.
Then came on the scene is the second zone; the second zone again did very well their choir was not just good but very good.
Then the sermon was great and incidentally they kept to time. It wasn’t long we discovered that the one who was preaching was an evangelist; he was good. And he also made some very important points:
•1. If you worship God hopeless situation will be turned around •2. When you really worship God, you will provoke God to intervene in your situation. •3. He tells us that if we worship God whole heartedly, then the impossible will become possible.
Then we move on to zone three: zone three also did excellently well, they kept to time which is very good, and they only exceed their time by two minutes which is tolerable.
Two minute is not too bad for a beginner. Their choir was not just good but great. And it wasn’t long also before we discovered we are dealing with an evangelist.
There is only one point I want to point to him, he was a little too loud as a result some of us had to strain our ears to hear what he has to say.
Initially we adjusted as we went along we had to retune our ears to higher volume. Anointing has nothing to do with noise.
You can talk normally just as am talking now and God will still do what He will still do. That is important so you don’t have to shout in order to get your message across, apart from that he did extremely well.
He gave a definition of worship that is very close to my heart and that is worship actually means total submission to the person you are worshipping.
And then He made some crucial point also, he said worship should be a habit; it is not something you do just once in a while. For a child of God worship should be almost the same thing as breathing.
David said I will bless the Lord at all times, he mentioned that one. He also mentioned something important; and that worship is active not passive.
I have said it before, it is possible to study the word of God silently; you can read the bible silently.
It is possible to meditate silently, believe it or not it is possible to pray silently, as a matter of fact as noisy as we Pentecostal are.
Anytime we say let somebody ask for something special, suddenly you don’t want the fellow next to you know what you are asking and everybody goes quiet.
So you can pray silently, but there is no way you can praise silently, you can’t praise somebody silently.
If you want to say the fellow is good, you will have to open your mouth to say so.
So if there is somebody here who wants praise God let me hear a shout of halleluiah!
And then he went further to tell us that worship is a weapon of warfare which is probably the area I will be discussing on briefly later on.
He also mentioned one point that I hope you all got and that is that when a true worshipper is before God; He is carefree.
A true worshipper doesn’t care whether you are looking at him or not because He is not concerned with you, he is concerned with God.
True worshippers don’t remember how big they are, they don’t remember they are president or governor or whatever.
“I am before my maker let me do my own thing”. And tonight as we go deeper into the word of God, you may need to tell the fellow next to you; if you don’t want to worship God relocate because I want to worship God tonight.
Any worshipper here tonight? Wave your hand and shout to the Almighty God.
Let’s put our hands to the Almighty God for the third zone, they did very well.
Then the fourth zone, their choir was also very good in fact as I watch them the thought that came to my mind is indeed divine militancy.
We know the area they came from and when they sang they sang militantly and I like that.
That is the way God expect; in spirit and in truth with everything, they put everything into it. The conductor was himself was sweating half way, beautiful choir.
Then the preacher came on the scene and incidentally the preacher of zone four seems to be the only elder in the group of preachers tonight.
So when I saw him coming I said “well let’s get ready for something matured” and belief me honestly he gave us something matured.
Because when he was reading his text, I was wondering where is he going. Because He started with David weep and crying, I said we are here to worship God where is he going?
But by the time he finished, glory be to God! He has made some very serious points:
•1. You can weep as much as you like it doesn’t solve your problems, at time prayer may not even produce result but the moment you begin to worship God the helper of your destiny will show up. •2. He says if you worship God those who are conspiring against you are doom to foolishness. •3. Probably the third one that he said he might not have said it the way I will say it. Is that when you worship God, God and your enemy will begin to wear same trouser. What he meant is that God and your enemy will enter the city at the same time. Put it in the African way; if I worship God and you are my enemy, get ready to wear the same trouser with my God and let us see how it will be good for you.
There is only one important point to tell the elder; he forgot time he got carried away and over shot his time by ten minutes.
Well, being an elder we can understand but time is not just money, time is life, be careful how you spend it.
All put together I want us to really, really put our hands together to all these wonderful children of God who has blessed us tremendously tonight.
Now before I go to my own message and I can assure you that I will be brief because we are here to worship God.
I think I need to remind us the meaning of clapping, because some of us have forgotten.
I have told the story before that clapping signifies to God that God, “I will cooperate with you” and I will explain it.
One day the two hands saw the birds singing and they feel we too should be able to sing, and finger my finger they tried, one finger moving no sound, two no sound, until somehow there was an inspiration if two fingers cooperate they will produce some sound.
It might not be much but if two fingers are cooperating they will produce a sound.
Then suddenly they said if two finger cooperating can produce a sound, then a finger cooperating with a palm might produce a bigger sound.
You want to hold your one palm and began to tap it with one finger, “do you get any finger at all?” put two finger together, go on to three fingers, go to four, go to five, amen!
So anytime we asked you to put your hands together for God, we are asking you to tell Him that from now on I will cooperate with you.
Go ahead now and put your hands together with the Almighty
Then I have told you before, (All these are necessary because of the worship that is going to come up later)
Bible scholars says when the Bible said clap your hands oh ye people, what the original means is that put your enemies in-between your two palms and jam the palms together.
Jam the hands together; Crush the enemy by putting your hands together.
John 4 v 22-24 Jesus was speaking here to the woman of Samaria, and He said “Ye worship what ye no not what, we know what we worship for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour comet and now is when the true worshippers shall worship the father in Spirit and in Truth, for the father seeketh such to worship Him.”
God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
Now the greatest wonder of worship of God is that when we are not even sure that prayer will succeed, we know that worship will never fail.
This is because the most important ingredients to answered prayer is found in Isaiah 55v 6. It says seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near.
In other words, there may be a time when you will seek for Him and He may not be found, there is a time you may call on Him and He may not be near.
Now the question is: since God is invincible, how do I know when He is near?
And when we talk about Him being near, how near is near?
In Proverbs 8 v17 God said I love those who love me, those who seek me early shall find me.
Ok , when is early?
Is it at midnight, is it 6am, is it 5am?
When is early, how early is early?
So we have a problem, even in prayer. How do we know whether He is hearing us or not because we don’t know whether He is near or far?
But the problem is solved for us by saying if you worship God in spirit and in truth, God Himself will seek you out.
It is not a question of me seeking Him now; it will be Him seeking me.
And if God is seeking me, there can be no mistakes, because believe it or not God knows your address.
If God wants to visit you, He doesn’t need anybody to point out to Him where you come from. He knows where you are born, He knows where you residing, He knows your present address.
When He was talking to somebody that He wanted to send to Saul, He said Saul of Tarsus; is in a particular house, at a particular time.
He knows where you are born; He knows your present address, He knows the street, the name of the street was called straight.
He said in the house of Simon, not just an ordinary Simon, a particular Simon.
God have been numbering houses before you are born, He knows your address, and I am praying for somebody here today that as great as this crowd is God will seek you out.
But that is where the beauty lies, For God to seek you out, God who is seated on his throne, for God to pay you a visit, he has to get up from His throne.
And Psalm 68 v1-3 says let God arise and His enemies be scattered. So when you worship God and He is coming to pay you a visit, He arises.
That is the greatest wonder of all! As soon as God arises, your enemies begin to scatter.
In Judges 15 v 14-15 the Bible tells us the story of how Samson dealt with the Philistines and they became angry and decided to lay a siege on the children of Israel, the children of Israel asked them why are you here?
And they replied we want Samson. They said don’t worry we will hand him over to you. And three thousand men went to the rock Etam to go and bind Samson, he said “well just make sure you are not going to kill me because if you attempt that whether we are relatives or not, it is not going to matter”.
They said no, we will only bind you and hand you over to the enemy.
By the time they were binding him, God said nothing, they brought him down him from the mountain, God remained silent.
And then they handed Him over to the enemy and the enemy began to rejoice, then God arose.
Every one of you here tonight, and those of you listening to me all over the world, God will arise for you tonight.
And as soon as God arose, the enemies of Samson scattered, those who are slow in scattering got killed; just One thousand of them.
It doesn’t matter how many enemies followed you into the month of June,
In the name that is above every other name, by the time rises tomorrow they shall be no more.
So what is your enemy tonight? Because when we talk about enemies many at times, people are thinking about mother in law, father in law, daughter in law, not necessarily so.
Your enemy could be sickness, so if your enemy is sickness, that pain, that ache which is not allowing you to enjoy the abundant life that God has for you, if that is your enemy, all you need to get rid of it is to worship God.
Mark 1 v 40-45 the Leper worship God, he was incurable until he worshipped God.
The beauty about the story of that leper, is that when he was going down on his knees; he was a leper. But the time he finished worshipping and he got up, he was whole.
Tonight as you worship the Almighty God before the worship is over, you shall be whole in Jesus name.
My advice however is that after you have been made whole, keep worshipping God; so that the sickness may never return.
I have told you the story of a man who was carried to the headquarters years ago, completely stiff, his hands stiff like iron, his legs like iron.
He couldn’t bend his hands by any means; he couldn’t bend down by any means. He came like that, we ask him if he will give his life to Jesus he did, we prayed a simple prayer, immediately everything became normally; he was able to kneel, he was able to raise his hands, he was able to clap, he was able to do everything he wasn’t able to do before.
For two weeks he was always ready at the service, singing and praising God and after some time we couldn’t find him again.
And so we did a follow up.
And he said “what is the problem? If you go to the hospital and you get well won’t you come home?”
“Is it your church that healed me? I came to your church and I got healed, thank you very much that is all”.
He got his healing but he lost it because some month later I saw him as I was driving from the university of Lagos I saw him; this time not only were the hands back the way there were, not only were the legs back the way they were, the mouth is now open and won’t close.
The healing that God will give you tonight shall be permanent in Jesus name.
What if your enemy is not sickness suppose it is bondage.
And you know that forces of darkness are holding you captive, like one of the brother before me who spoke, the mad man of Gardereans fell on his knees, before the demon could take over his tongue he was already on his knees worshipping God.
By the time he was on his feet all the demons were gone.
When you find yourself in bondage, worship God.
You don’t have to attend a deliverance service if you know how to worship God.
You cannot be a good worshipper of God and demons will stay with you, it is not possible.
I have told you before that you don’t find me in any of our meetings beginning the service the way some people will do, saying we are about to start this service now devil we bind you etc, you don’t hear me say that, why?
Because I have seen people binding the devil in the morning service and then they bind him in the evening service which means he got loose between morning service and evening service.
Now if he is that slippery how do I know that five minutes after I bind him, he won’t be loose?
But I have found a better way of dealing with the devil; he doesn’t stay where people are praising God.
Because God happens to be his number one enemy and nobody likes to stay where they are praising their enemy.
That is why I start my own service by asking you to praise God.
May I hear someone shout another halleluiah!
If your enemy is bondage, worship Him, and after He has set you free, keep on worshipping Him.
You can see me hammering on what He will do after.
Because tonight as we worship God, God will do marvelous thing in our lives, and I want your healing to be permanent, I want your deliverance to be permanent.
Again I have told you the story of a man who swallowed a charm to make money.
They gave him seven years; seven years.
He will be ridiculously rich but after seven years you will die.
He said no problem.
Seven years of enjoyment is better than a life time of suffering.
So he swallowed the charm.
But the money didn’t come and what he swallowed began to bite him inside. A few days for seven years to conclude, he ran into the church.
We asked him to give his life to Jesus he did, we prayed a simple prayer and he vomited the thing, right there at the headquarters.
And of course for some time he was coming and he was praising God. After some time we didn’t see him again.
And we did a follow up.
And he said thank you very much they told me that I swallowed the first one wrongly.
If you don’t continue in the worship of God after deliverance the demons will come back and this time they won’t come back alone, they will come with their friends.
I am praying that your deliverance will permanent in Jesus name.
So he swallowed it correctly this second time and money began to follow like a river.
When it was almost seven years now, he had a brain wave; after all, all this demons are in Africa so if I run to Britain the weather there is cold so they won’t be able to handle that.
So he jumped into a plane on his way to London, He died on the plane.
The devil will always come for his own pay.
Thank God I belong to Jesus Christ.
If you need mental or material breakthrough, worship God.
In 2 Chronicle 1 v 6-15 the Bible tells us that Solomon worshipped God by offering a thousand burnt offering to God.
It was an act of worship, the kind that the people around him had never seen before.
That night God paid him a visit and told him anything you want ask.
And the boy said, I want wisdom because he was so dull and he knew he was dull.
Give me wisdom; give me knowledge so that I can serve you the way I ought to.
The Bible says God gave him wisdom and gave him in addition, that before him there was no one like him and after him there have never been another one.
When you want wisdom this time I’m not only talking to student, I’m talking to all of us, wisdom is the principal thing.
Business men needs wisdom, academicians needs wisdom. Even in handling your marital affairs you need wisdom, and if you need wisdom, worship God.
He will give you wisdom and when you worship Him in Spirit and in truth and your way that may seems to be securely blocked by the enemy will be forced open.
Occasionally as you go through life you find that when you turn to the right it seems to be blocked, you turn to the left it seems to be blocked, front is blocked, it becomes difficult to go back and you don’t even know what to do anymore; worship God!
Like somebody mentioned earlier on the children of Israel were securely blocked by the wall of Jericho but when they worshipped God, the wall came down flat.
You know among Pentecostal there is praise, they call it “shout down your wall!”
In other word if you have a wall blocking your way, shout so loudly that the wall will fall; now it may sound funny but if that shout is not just hoooo! But if it is halleluiah, it will work.
Is anybody faced with a blockage to your way tonight; let me hear you shout that blockage down.
I told you that all I want to do is to briefly prepare the ground to worship God; we want to do something we haven’t done for a long time.
Daddy says “son, do you believe that I am Unchangeable?” And of cause the answer is “yes Lord”. He said “son do you believe that what I have done before, I can do it again?” I said “yes Lord”. So He asked me to tell you that the God of Joshua is still here today. And the way you shouted casually wasn’t the way He was expecting you to. Is anybody here having an obstacle? Get on your feet and shout a big halleluiah to the Almighty God. I can assure you that it may sound childish but you will testify.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; He said I will lengthen your life so that you can praise me more.
Daddy says it is written that the first shall become last, but the last shall become first. He asked me to tell you that the last shall become first shall be your portion.
Whenever you worship God, He responds mightily. Any time you worship God He responds mightily.
Let me give you an example, Davis said in Psalm 118 v1 he said my heart is fixed within me, I will praise the Lord, the Almighty God responded in Psalm 23 v 5 David now said thou prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
If you will decide to worship God without changing, whatever may be happening He will prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemies.
Do you know what that means? Irrespective of what your enemies may try, God will bless you.
David said in Psalm 34 v 1 He said I will bless the Lord at all time, His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
You know what God said? “David, since you are going to bless me at all time. Since my praise shall continually be in your mouth, surely goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life.”
You make up your mind that you are going to worship Him, He will respond mightily!
I expect that fire will fall tonight, so it doesn’t matter what the enemy may do, this is your night because you are going to worship God like you have never done before and He will respond like He has never done before.
I told those who were with me in Israel… I said there are two categories of worshippers, there are those who worship God, those who praise Him, after something has happened, after miracle, I called them baby worshipper.
There are those who worship God before their miracles come, they are the adult worshipper, people who will worship God, when the wall is still standing, people who will worship God even when the sickness is still there, people who will worship God when it looks as if they may never have a child.
Because it is the adult worshippers, who worshipped God before the miracle, that always get more than they asked for.
And tonight, just as David said
Thou anoint my head with oil, my cup runneth over.
The cup of someone will run over in Jesus name, if you are the one let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Now before we move into the session of worship, I need to let you know that according to the word of God when a sinner tries to bring a sacrifice to Him, He doesn’t receive it, the word of God says a sacrifice of a sinner is an abomination to God.
So if you are not yet born again, when it gets to the stage where everybody is worshipping God don’t join us, but if you will make up your mind that you will give your life to Jesus Christ right now, He will save your soul and then you will become one of those who qualifies to worship the Almighty God.
Because the real meaning of surrendering your life to Jesus is to say from now, you are the One I want to worship.
I won’t worship the devil anymore, I won’t worship the flesh anymore, I won’t worship money anymore, I won’t worship sin anymore.
If you want to surrender your life to Jesus Christ I want you to begin to come now ….
And as you come begin to talk to God, ask Him to have mercy on you, ask Him to save your soul. Promise Him that you are surrendering to Him tonight.
And the rest of us please stretch your hands towards these people and ask the Almighty to have mercy on them and save their souls. Ask that the Almighty God will forgive them of their sins.
…In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Father I want to thank you for all these your children who have come forward tonight to surrender their lives to you; you are the One who promised oh Lord that whosoever will come unto you, you will not cast out, they have come to you now, Father receive them in Jesus name, have mercy on them in Jesus name.
Let your blood wash away their sins tonight in Jesus name, save their souls and write their names in the book of life in Jesus name.
Father from now on, as they worship you and call on you, please answer them by fire in Jesus name. Don’t let them go back into the world and let them serve you forever, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Now I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward, I want to promise you that from now on anytime I am praying I will remember you in my prayers and very soon you will be receiving miracles, even miracles you didn’t ask for, so I am going to need your names, your address and your prayer request www.rccg.org
I want you to pay attention, I want to tell you one story before we do what we are about to do tonight, some of you have heard the story before.
We were in Abuja for the first Holy Ghost Service; we wanted to start a church so we decided to have an Holy Ghost Service.
We were going to be there for three days I was in the hotel where they lodge me and I was praying with all my heart; Almighty God save soul, heal the sick, set the captives free, you know the normal prayer a good pastor should pray.
When all of a sudden God spoke to me and said “son shut up” and like I used to say I was happy when He says shut up because at least it means He is listening.
He said all that I have done for you when have you thank Me for it? Do this, do that, am I your servant?
I said am very sorry Lord.
He said for the next three days all I want you to do is worship Me, don’t ask Me for anything just worship Me.
Am telling you it was very difficult; I will sing, I will dance, I will worship Him for a while the mind will go to something I need.
Then I will say do this, He will say go back to worship. I did it for three days, towards the end of the three days, He said to me “son, because of what you have done, go home, select elders who will go and cement the foundation of the church, He said because all you have seen thus far is addition but now you about to experience multiplication.
I won’t tell you how many church we have in the great Abuja but I can tell you this; one minister of Abuja pulled down forty six of our churches in two weeks and it didn’t bother us at all. That will tell you the meaning of multiplication.
Tonight you are not going to ask God for anything, all you are going to do is to praise Him, for the next thirty minute or more if the Holy Spirit says we should continue you will just Worship God.
If you want to sing, sing, if you want to dance, dance if you want to clap, clap. Just worship Him your own way. If you want to knee, knee down, if you want to lie, lie down. Just begin to worship Him for the next thirty minutes….
In Jesus name we have worship.
Blessed be your name 2ce
Oh Lord! Halleluiah
Mighty is your name 2ce
Oh Lord! Halleluiah
Holy is your name 2ce
Oh Lord! Halleluiah
Jesus is your name 2ce
Oh Lord! Halleluiah
Almighty God, King of kings, Lord of lords, I Am that I Am, Ancient of days, the Glorious One, the Powerful One, the Mighty One, the Loving One, the Faithful One, glory be to your Holy name.
My father and my God because your children have worshipped you tonight, arise for them.
Arise oh Lord; let your enemies be scattered 4ce
Arise, oh Lord! Arise.
Arise oh Lord; let your enemies be scattered 4ce
Arise, oh Lord! Arise.
Lord of host arise for your children tonight, if their enemies be sickness drive it away in Jesus name, if their enemies be bondage, drive it away in Jesus name. If their enemies be demons scatter them in Jesus name, if their enemies be poverty destroy it in Jesus name, if their enemy be barrenness, remove it tonight in Jesus name, if their enemies be sorrow remove it tonight in Jesus name.
Because your children have worshipped you Oh Lord arise for them, give them something to sing about.
They have worshipped you Lord, every wall of Jericho in their way bring it down tonight. Thank you my father, glory be to your name.
In Jesus mighty name we have worshipped.
Let me hear somebody shout a big halleluiah!
Pastor E. A. Adeboye

PRAYER FOR THOSE BORN IN THE MONTH OF JULY
Father Almighty we want to commit into your children born in the month of July, the seventh month the month of perfection, let every areas of their lives Father, let everything be perfect, give them perfect joy, perfect success, perfect anointing, perfect breakthroughs, perfect testimonies, perfect glory, perfect honor and everything that is divine release unto them perfectly and let them serve you perfectly also.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
By the special grace of God if the Lord tarries next month will be our convention and so there will be no Holy Ghost service on the first Friday of the month but the Holy Ghost night will come during the convention which is the second Friday of August.
Now the convention this year is going to be very peculiar and the reason is not everybody is invited.
Am sure that will surprise you, you see if Jesus changes your circumstances and does not change you, very soon the circumstances will go bad again.
If you are healed but you are not transformed by God, sooner or later you will still die. I mean Lazarus was raised from the dead, where is he now? Dead a long time ago!
The convention for this year alone is for those who are hungry for divine transformation, those who want to be changed in out.
The convention this year is not for jokers, it is only for those who are hungry for God who are thirsty for righteousness, who are desperately in need of God, who want to know God, who wants to be like Jesus Christ, if you don’t satisfy this condition please don’t come.
There won’t be enough space anyway, so if you are not coming for serious business with God, please stay at home.
Because from day number one it is going to be heavy stuff. There is not going to be any lecture that will be child play, everything during this year convention is going to be heavy stuff.
You see there are three kinds of Christians; baby Christians who drink milk, adult Christians who eat meat, and then there are those I call the bone crackers, those who crack bones so they can get the marrows.
The convention of this year is going to be for bone crackers, so if you are not ready for serious businesses I beg you in the name of Jesus, please stay at home.
The convention this year is not for jokers; if you are not serious, If you don’t want to come and seek God so that you can be transformed inside out. Please don’t bother to come.
If I don’t come on the first few days when there will be heavy teaching, cant I come on Friday of the holy Ghost service; that will be the heaviest day of all, because this year we want to talk about JESUS.
We don’t want to talk about Father Christmas, we want to talk about Jesus, we want to talk about the unchangeable changer, we want to talk about the one who is the same today, yesterday and forever, we don’t want to talk about the modern Jesus, we want to talk about the old time Jesus.
If you are not ready for old time religion please don’t come. You have been warned! This year’s convention will be very, very peculiar, by the time we finished if the Lord hasn’t come, the few of you who comes will say this is the greatest convention we have ever had.
How many of you will still come in spite of what I said? Are you sure? To be forward is to be for armed.28V38
Tonight we want to talk about the wonders of DIVINE BLESSING.
Genesis 12 v 1-3 now the Lord has said to Abraham get thee out thy country and from thy kindred and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee, and I will make thee of great nation, and I will bless thee, and make the name great, and thou shall be a blessing and I will bless them that bless thee, I shall curse they that curse thee and in thee shall all family of the earth be blessed.
That passage alone tells you that when a man is blessed, his friends are also blessed, he said I will bless them that blessed thee and his enemies are in trouble because he said I will curse him that curseth thee.
When a man is truly blessed, even his children are blessed, He said through thy seed shall all the earth be blessed,
I pray for somebody here today may the Almighty God bless you, may your children be blessed, may your friends be blessed. May your enemies repent! Otherwise they will be in trouble.
Genesis 24 v 34-35 someone was speaking here and he said I am Abraham’s servant and the Lord has blessed my master greatly and he has become great and he has given him flocks and herds and silver and gold and men servants and maid servant and Carmel and ashes.
May it be said of you very soon, that God has blessed you greatly!
What do we mean when we say blessing?
The speaker before me has given a very beautiful academic definitions, but I will want to just put it in the language of a market woman and say there are two basic definitions of blessing.
when all needs are met and then something extra comes on top of it. Psalm 23 v5 David said thou prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies, thou anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over.
When the cup is running over, we are talking about blessing. If you already had enough and now you have something extra.
For example, to be well is good, to be healthy is wonderful, but health is a necessity.
Blessings come when instead of just being healthy, healing virtues begin to flow out of you, when you are so healthy that you lay hands on anybody and they recovered, then you are blessed.
And am praying for everyone here today, from tonight henceforth any one you touch will receive a blessing.
But the spiritual definition of a blessing is a summon to forces; all forces on earth, in heaven, underneath the earth to come to the aid of someone, so that the fellow will succeed and excel.
Am going to read to you a passage from the scripture which the preacher before spent so much time on because it is very essential. Genesis 27v 27-29 it is the blessing of Isaac on Jacob.
And he came near and he kissed him, and he smells the smell of his raiment and he blessed him saying see: the smell of my son, is like the field which the Lord Has blessed. Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine, let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee. Be Lord over thy brethren and let your mother son bow down to thee, cursed be anyone that curses thee and blessed be anyone who blesses you.
That is a classical example of what a blessing is; a summon to all the forces in heaven, all the forces on earth and all the forces underneath the earth to come and assist somebody so that that fellow will succeed and excel.
Here Isaac said God give thee of the dew of heaven; that is help from heaven and when God gives you dew from heaven according to Zachariah 8 v 12 then the seed you plant shall prosper, your vine will be fruitful and the ground will give the increase.
And then he went further and say not only is heaven to help you, he said also of the fatness of the earth. Psalm 36 v 38 says when that happens you will get abundant satisfaction. Not just satisfied, but satisfied abundantly.
Then he moved on to say ‘let people serve thee”.
And when you see Genesis 26 v 12 – 14 the Bible tells us that Isaac had stores of servants. He has servant so many that he was practically keeping them in stores.
Do you know that Esau who came after his brother left and got just the remnant of the blessings from his father ended up with four hundred servants?
Remnant blessing; Four hundred servants!
Am prophesying to someone here today, very very soon the number of people you are feeding will exceed four hundred.
What happens when a man is blessed?
heaven will assist him. Deuteronomy 28v12 says when you are blessed, then you will get rain in season to bless the work of your hands.
If you ask any farmer he will tell you the greatest thing a farmer pray for is that the rain will fall when due. If it falls too soon, it will destroy the crop. If it fails to fall at the right time the crop will not mature. Rain in season!
I pray for you that from today onward you will enjoy rain in season.
When a man is blessed, even the sun and the moon will corporate with him Joshua10 v 12- 14 Joshua was fighting and the sun was about to set, he lifted up his eyes to heaven and said sun stay where you are, moon stay where you are until I finished my assignment.
The sun corporate, the moon corporate because Joshua was a blessed man.
2 kings 20 v 1 -11 Ezekiel was sick, God said he was going to die, he cried to God and said I don’t want to go yet, God said ‘alright I will prolong your life, I give you additional fifteen years’ and he asked the man of God, ‘will you give me a sign?’ The man of God said what sign do you want? He said “I want the sun to go back; tell the sun to retrace its step”. When you are blessed even the sun will corporate with you.
I can give you several examples when we say the sun and the moon will corporate with you it has a deeper meaning; it means season will corporate with you.
I give you an illustration or two and I have evidence and witnesses here.
Some years ago when we were starting bible study fellowship at University of Ibadan (UI), we were only five when we start in the house of Professor Aboaba.
The Bible study grew, more and more professors joined us so the sitting room couldn’t contain us, so we moved to the backyard.
One day as were settling down for Bible study, rain came and you know professors, they wanted to run away.
And I lifted my hands and I said rain you can’t fall now. Rain fell everywhere in UI, except the compound of Professor Aboaba, if you don’t belief me ask him he will tell you.
I give you another example; we went to Abeokuta to hold a crusade, in front of the palace. Just as I gave the altar call and people where begin to troop forward. Rain came and the people who were surging forward suddenly began to move back.
So I said rain, stay where you are you can’t fall now, and rain rolled like carpet away from where we were holding the meeting. I think that happened on Saturday.
The program was for three days, on Monday when we finished and as I was about to close the meeting, Pastor Abatan came to me and said sir, you are going, will you please release the rain?
I mentioned names so that you can check these are true stories. I said rain will fall after we leave, we tidy up and we did everything. Less than 30 minutes after we left town, rain came.
Beginning from today even the sun and the moon will corporate with you.
Maybe I should tell you one or two more; Some years ago, I was invited to a very important meeting in a place called Denver Colorado in United State and the meeting was going to take place in January and those who knows America knows that Denver can be very , very cold in January.
It was in the middle of winter, I said daddy should I go? He said go. I said what are we going to do about winter? He said don’t worry about that.
I was there for three days; they are hearing me now from all over the world so you can be sure those who were there then will remember. During the three days I was there people where wearing t-shirt because summer came.
I left the place at 5pm, before 6pm, 12 ½ centimeter of snow filled the place.
Some of you have heard the story before; years ago when the only auditorium we had here was the first auditorium beside the road.
I wanted to pray in the night, the whole of this place was jungle and some people came to pray in the auditorium and they were so loud, I wasn’t getting sufficient silence for my meditation.
So I took my touch light and I was walking along the bush path, I went deeper and deeper into the jungle so I can focus on God.
Now it was one of this modern touch light with rechargeable batteries, when I switch it on when I was leaving home the light was bright, after I had gone far into the jungle, very close to the river there, suddenly I pressed the touch light because I heard a sound and the light went out.
Ah! How do I get black?
It was pitched black. Darkness! How do I move through the jungle back to where there was some little light, the light then wasn’t much!
Then I remembered that when I was young, our teacher told us that if you suddenly find yourself in darkness, if you close your eyes, by the time you open your eyes, the darkness won’t be so dark anymore.
So I closed my eyes by the time I opened my eyes, there was bright moon light, all over the place.
And I walked all the way back to where there was light and then I remembered there was no moon light when I was going, how come? And I looked up and there was no moon.
When you are blessed, the sun, the moon, the rain will corporate with you.
And the prayer I am about to pray now, is for my children only. Forgive me! All those who call me daddy, even as God has blessed me so shall He bless you.
Do you know in Matthew 2 v 1-11 it was a star that guided the wise men to where Jesus was.
When you are blessed the heaven begins to help. When we say the heavens begin to help that also includes those beings that live in heaven; Angels.
In 1King 19 v 4-8, it was an Angel that brought food to Elijah. Two times; when he was discourage, when he was feeling that he should die, God sent an angel to bring him food.
In Daniel 6 v 19 -22 it was an Angel that came and stopped the mouth of lions so that they couldn’t touch Daniel.
In Act 12 v 5-11 it was an angel that came and set Peter free in prison, the night before he was to be killed.
In 2Kings 19 v 32 -37 it was a single angel from the Lord that fought against Sennacherib and destroy one hundred and eighty thousand soldiers in one night, why?
Because King Hezekiah was blessed.
In Matthew 2 v 13-15 it was an angel that warned Joseph in a dream that Herod was about to kill his beloved son.
Now when we talk about angels, when you see some drawing of angel, you will see them drawing small babies with wings, those are not angels, maybe those are demons I don’t know.
Let me tell you the truth I have seen angels several times and I am telling you, they are huge, every angel that I have ever seen, they are so big that every time you see an angel, the first thing he will tell you is fear not.
You know why? Because you will be frightened! They are big!
One sister wrote about a time when they were in an airplane, a 747 and everything was turbulent and it appeared as if they were about to crash and as she cried to God, she looked out of the window, she saw an angel smiling at her, carrying the plane in the palm of his hand.
I prophecy to someone here today, the angel that will take care of all your enemies will pay you a visit tonight in Jesus name.
But angel can transform into something you can handle and I give you an example; I’ll tell you a story that some of you have heard before.
When I was a little child, I can’t remember how old I was, I was probably be about 6 or 7years old, one of my elder sister got married and moved away to her husband’s farm.
So I asked when we met, where is your farm? And she described the place; when you get to this place you turn right; you get to that place you turn left.
And as a little child I just decided that I am going to visit my sister in the farm, I didn’t know far is not very far, so I began to go.
I took this place, I turned left that place, suddenly I didn’t even know where I was anymore, I didn’t know how to get back home, I didn’t know how to get back to her farm, I was lost!
In my own little childish way I looked up to heaven and said God help me, by the time I looked down I saw this little white dog, I don’t know how it appeared.
But I saw this little white dog and it was wagging his tail and looking at me as if I am a friend, and since I didn’t know where I was going anyway, so I followed the dog, maybe the dog will lead me to somewhere where people will help me and the dog led me to the farm of my sister.
When I got there and my sister saw me, she said
How did you come here?
Who brought you here?
I said ‘that little white dog’,
She said there is no dog on this farm.
We came out, looked outside the hut and there was no dog.
I believed very firmly that God sent an angel to rescue me so I can stand before you to preach to you tonight.
I pray for somebody here tonight that the Almighty God will send help to somebody here tonight.
When a man is blessed, forces on earth will assist.
Number two, forces on earth will assist.
The Lord said there is someone here this night; He said your day of affliction will end this month.
Do you know God can use birds to help you? Psalm 105 v 40 said the children of Israel asked Him and God brought quails. The children of Israel said they wanted meat, and the Bible says, the quail came and by the time they arrived, they were just picking them up as much as they wanted.
In 1King 17 v 2-6 God sent ravens to bring food to Elijah twice a day. They didn’t miss their way.
Fish, God can use fish to bless you, we know the story of Jonah very well, Jonah 1 v 15-17 the Bible tells us that when Jonah was thrown into the sea, it was a big fish that swallowed him, when God finished with him over there, it was the same fish that went to vomited him on dry ground Jonah 2 v 10.
In Matthew 17 v24-27 when Peter wanted to pay tax, the Lord asked him to go and catch a fish, open its mouth you will find a coin there, a fish brought money to Peter.
You know I have always tell you, there is a fish beside you, and the money you need is in his mouth, it is waiting to be caught and you know what that means.
I am talking of somebody waiting to be saved, someone that you go out and fished for is soul, when you win him, everything you can ever need is already there in his hands.
In Luke 5 v 1-7 somebody was telling the story of Peter who fished all night and caught nothing, then suddenly he threw his net and caught so much fish that his boat and that of his friend began to sink.
And he said what happened was that as he was throwing the net all the fish was just jumping in, why?
Because Peter was a blessed man.
I pray for somebody here tonight; every help that you need on earth, will you receive it tonight in the name of Jesus.
He said let the heavens help you by sending dews, let the earth help you, forces on earth and he included that by saying let men serve you.
You know when you are blessed human beings will become vessel of honor in God’s hands bringing blessings to you.
You know I read that passage to you where he said that I am Abraham servant and God has blessed my master greatly.
You want to know where that blessing comes from. Check Genesis 12 v 14-15 all the blessing that Abraham suddenly had came from Pharaoh.
You know the Bible says the wealth of the wicked is laid up for the just.
I can guarantee you that before the end of the year, there will be wealth transfer.
When the Bible says in Genesis 30 v 27-43, the Bible tells us that Jacob increased exceedingly, where did he get the blessings from?
It was transferred from Laban, In fact when you read Genesis 31 v 1, the children of Laban said this man came and took over the wealth of our father.
Let men help you! When you are blessed, blessing will begin to flow in from people, those you know and those you don’t know.
I was studying the Bible, then I say wait a minute they said Solomon became stinkingly rich.
Where did he get this money from?
And then I saw 2Chronicles 9 v 13-14 the money came from all the kings of Arabia and all the governors of the land, they were all joyfully bringing all their wealth to him.
Then I saw another example in 2Chronicle 20 v 1-25 it tells you the story of Jehoshaphat which you know very well, Jehoshaphat love the Lord, he was a worshipper of God, but he was poor.
So God decided let’s bless this boy. And so He inspired three kings to rise up against him and he told them go and take over Jehoshaphat’s land.
He has no army. It would be a work over. So they were going to war, but they came to war loaded with money, loaded with silver, loaded with gold.
They were wearing golden earrings, they were wearing bangles because there is not going to be any real fight anyway; let’s just go and have fun.
And the Almighty God moves, as soon as these Kings got close to Jehospaht, they killed themselves, and the Bibles said when Jehoshaphat came to carry the wealth. It took three days to carry the spoil.
All the wealth of your enemy shall come back to you very soon.
Forces in Heaven will help the one who is blessed, forces on earth will help the one who is blessed, and this may be difficult for you to handle but even forces under the earth, forces that you will call demonic forces they will come and help the one who is blessed.
I know that is difficult for you to swallow, but I will show you from the Bible. For example, when you read 1Samuel 16 v 15-23 what happened here?
David has been anointed king, he was to be king over isreal but he was a shepherd boy, he didn’t know how they behave in the royal house, he didn’t know what happens in the palace and God wanted to train him under the king that he was going to replace.
How did God do it?
You know the story; an evil spirit from the Lord came and began to trouble king Saul and the servant of king Saul went to him and said sir, an evil spirit is troubling you, you are mad!
You need somebody who can play very well so that you will be refreshed. And somebody answered and said I know somebody, I know a young boy called David the son of Jesse, he is very good at playing the harp, the king said go and bring him.
You know one day God sent me to one head of state in Africa several years ago. And I was trying to tell him how good God has been to him, that God used the British to give him scholarship to come to Britain to study.
After they trained him, he came back and rose up against the British and took his country away from the British.
God took this man into the palace of the man he was going to replace for training.
I am prophesy into someone here today, even your enemy will become a blessings to you very soon.
I can give you several examples, let me just tell you one; in my village, in my compound there was a woman; everybody knew her to be a witch and she didn’t hide it.
As a matter of fact she had killed one or two of her own children and so everybody was kind of afraid of her.
And in those days, am talking of 1950’s when we want to study at night, we eat Kola nut, how many of you know what am talking about?
If you know what am talking about you must be old. Many of us didn’t even know there was anything called coffee and if there was coffee, there was no money for coffee but kola nut was plenty and we kept on eating kola nut.
I love studying at night so I eat kola nut, and if you asked the elders they will tell you one f the eldest way to kill somebody is to give him a poison kola nut.
One day I was in my village, enjoying my kola nut when this woman, a notable witch called me and said “Enoch, stop eating kola nut!” when I told my mother, my mother said oh God! That is the one who says stop eating kola nut! I said even myself I have made up my mind, never again!
Even a witch can be a blessing!
All your enemies from today onward will become a blessing to you in Jesus name.
The Lord asked me to tell someone here tonight; He said because eagles fly alone; prepare to pay the price for your coming greatness.
I hope whoever concerned will understand.
So a single pronouncement of God bless you, can have tremendous implications.
Many people don’t know the value of God bless you.
I mean for example two nights ago, I was going around the camp praying and there was this young man and I could see that he was agitated; he probably had a lot of problems.
He saw that I was praying instead of leaving me alone, no he wouldn’t. He and said daddy pray for me, so in order for me to be able to continue with my prayers, I said God bless you.
I thought he will be so happy and go away rejoicing, he said amen, he said but I want you to pray for me.
I want to say to somebody here tonight; God bless you!
When God blesses you, you won’t lack anything again, because He owns all, the earth is the Lord and the fullness thereof.
Silver belong to Him, gold belongs to Him, the cattle upon a thousand hills belongs to Him.
The Bible says God has spoken ones twice have I heard that power belongs to God, so when God blesses you, you can live long.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; He said I will add more grease to your elbow.
Psalm 91v16 God said with long life will I satisfy him, when you are blessed you live long.
When you are blessed He can satisfy you with strength, He said they that wait upon thee shall renew their strength.
When you are blessed, he can satisfy you with wisdom, Daniel 2 v 20 -21.
When you are blessed, He can satisfy you with Joy, Psalm 16 v 11 says in His presence there is the fullness of joy.
When you are blessed He can satisfy you with Promotion. Psalm 75 v 6 – 7 Promotions comes from the Lord.
When you are blessed, He can satisfy you with victory without a fight, Deuteronomy 28 v 7.
You know many at times when you are blessed, It is after when the battle is over that you will know that some people were even fighting against you because God will fight for you.
I remembered our first convention on this camp ground; I was excited, we are holding convention on camp ground I didn’t know anything was happening but later on, I was to learn that there were four women, witches who held a meeting and decided that they will go and take over the camp before we arrived.
How did we discover?
We didn’t know anything, we just came, had a wonderful time and left, but within a week of the convention one of them came saying “we were four that came; we wanted to take over the convention.”
Of the four, one went mad, one died, one developed a hunch back, I can’t remember what happed to the forth one.
And I didn’t know anything!
I am prophesying for someone when the enemy come against you, they will only come to say we tried and we failed.
When you are blessed; it gives you wealth without sorrow because the Bible says the blessings of the Lord, it maketh rich and added no sorrows.
When you are blessed, then your anointing can overflow; like in Psalm 23 v 5, thou anointed my head with oil, my cup runeth over.
Now to me, one of the greatest wonders of divine blessing is that no man can tamper with God’s blessings upon your life.
They may criticize you, they may envy you, and I think I heard one of the men who spoke before me this evening saying ‘it is better to be envied than to be pitted’. I think that is a beautiful one, I said I will write it down.
Every one of you here tonight, very soon the world will envy you.
They can talk about you, I have told you before, people will talk about you. If you are a failure they will talk about you; they will say everyday you are carrying the Bible up and down, everyday you are calling the name of Jesus, where is the result?
If God prospers you mightily, they will talk about you; is he the only one serving God!
Now which of the two, do you preferred? The second or the first? It is better to be envied than to be pitied.
From tonight henceforth you will never be pited again.
Numbers 23 v 20 a prophet said I receive the commandment from God to bless.
He has blessed and I cannot reverse it. When God blesses you; no witch, no wizard, no herbalist, nobody can reverse the blessing.
Even the pastor who pronounces a blessing upon you cannot say I am taking it back.
So somebody is already blessed here tonight!
In Genesis 27 v 33 when Isaac discovered that he has blessed Jacob by mistake, he said to Esau, Esau, it’s a pity your brother came with subtlety and has stolen your blessing.
He said but let me tell you my son, I have blessed him and he shall be blessed.
Tell the fellow next to you, I am already blessed and there is nothing you can do about it
Recently, somebody said ”please sir I want to testify”
and they thought it will be for two minute and she took the microphone and testified for one hour, and the testimony were so big nobody could stop her.
The Lord said recently somebody testified for one hour, you will testify for two.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said not only will I make you great, I will establish your greatness forever.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said very soon, it will be said of you; his wealth can never be dimished.
I want to take one example and then I will round up, because tonight, I want you to really pray, this is a night when you really need to pray to God and He is going to answer you and pour His blessing on you.
Consider Joseph as a classical example of all I have been saying. In Genesis 37 v 5-11 in his dream, second dream; he saw the heavens already assisting him, he said I saw the sun, I saw the moon, I saw the eleven stars and they were all bowing down to me.
On earth his father loved him specially, Genesis 37 v 3 the Bible says his father loved him more than the other children and gave him a coat of many colors, even though he was still very young, help was already coming.
In Genesis 37 v 18-36 even his brothers helped; they saw him coming and they said here comes the dreamer, let’s kill him and see what will become of his dreams, then somebody said don’t let us kill him, let’s throw him into a well.
And then after sometime they said let’s sell him into slavery; they didn’t know they were helping him. They didn’t know it was in Egypt that his destiny was going to be fulfilled. The brothers helped him
Like somebody pointed out to me not too long ago; even the well helped him; the well was conveniently dry so that he won’t drown in a pull of water.
Men helped him! When he got to Egypt, Potiphar helped him Genesis 39 v 1-6 very, very soon, the slave boy became the head of the house of Potiphar and whether you believe it or not even the wife of Potiphar helped him. Genesis 39 v 7-20
It was because of the wife of Potiphar that Joseph got into the prison.
It was in the prison that he met the butler, if the wife of Potiphar had not lied against him; he would never have gotten to prison, if he didn’t get to prison the butler would not have met him, when Pharaoh had his dream, nobody would have introduce him to Pharaoh.
And then the famine helped him; because it was the famine that finally brought his family to Egypt for his brothers to come and bow before him.
I want to prophesy to you today, people you know and people you don’t know will be used of God to bless you, those who like you, those who hate you, those who appreciate you and those who criticize you, God will use all of them to help you.
But there is something I need to point out to you; Divine blessings as wonderful as they are, are usually conditional.
It’s like somebody said nothing good goes for nothing. Genesis 27 v 1-4 Isaac said to Esau; my boy, he said’’ am here daddy, ‘do you want my blessings?’
He said then take your bow and arrow go and look for an animal in the bush, kill the animal, bring it back home and make me that kind of meal that I love to enjoy then I can release my blessing upon you.
Nothing goes for nothing!
I know some of you will say but you have been blessing us already tonight, oh yes, I have been doing it on credit, knowing that sooner or later you are going to pay for it.
I have always told you that when your brother says God bless you, your brother is merely greeting you.
For blessings to come, It has to come from somebody who have spiritual authority over you.
Your husband can say to you, my wife, God bless you.
Am sure some wives will say that is not likely to happen because they know the kind of husband they have.
If your husband has never said God bless you, to you. Maybe you need to check yourself and change your ways.
If you give him what he likes, he will pronounce a blessing.
And when your husband says God bless you, you can be guarantee God will answer.
Unfortunately the wife hasn’t gotten that authority over the husband, because the husband is the head of the wife.
Your father can bless you and the blessing will be sanction by God your mother can bless you and the blessing will be sanctioned by God.
I have told you, I am where I am today by the grace of God and the prayer of my mother.
Your pastor can bless you, he has the spiritual authority to do so, and of course the General Overseer can bless you, he has the spiritual authority to do so.
That is why you are blessed in Jesus name.
But blessings are conditional, blessings are earned.
God said bring all the tithes into my house and I will replace every curse in your life with a blessing, he said give me your first fruit and I will bless you so much you won’t be able to contain it.
Blessings are conditionally.
Somebody came to me and said I want a double portion of your spirit, I said is that so?
How do think you are going to get it?
You have never ministered to me. Read your Bible; Elisha ministered unto Elijah, the Bible says he was pouring water on his hand.
That is why when the man was about to leave, he said now my boy what blessing do you want me to drop?
And I have told you the story before, I was at Heathrow long ago when we travel economy and they weigh your bag; if it is over weighed they charge you.
I didn’t have money to pay any excess luggage so I carried two carry-on.
In those days they never weigh those ones. And my load are always heavy because I always have plenty of books, books can weigh, so I will load my carry-on with books.
So I was carrying two carry-ons, heavy things; each one heavier than the luggage I checked in.
And I saw two of my boys, and the first one said good morning daddy, I said good morning.
The second one ran to me and said good morning daddy, let me help you carry your bags.
He took the bags and I say God bless you.
The first one turned to me and say daddy, you didn’t say God bless me too?
I said what for?
You said good morning, I said good morning.
You saw me carrying two bags you didn’t offer to help me with one.
And now you want a blessing?
The devil is a liar!
How many of you want to be blessed by God?
Are you really sure, will you be willing to pay the price?
May you be bless in Jesus name.
Let me conclude with this, I told you that when God blesses you nobody can tamper with the blessing.
No human being can tamper with the blessing. no demon, no witch, no wizard, if God says you are blessed, you are blessed. If they don’t like it that is their own headache.
And in the Name that is above every other names, all those who are criticizing you now will one day celebrate you.
The only one who can reverse a divine blessing is God Himself.
1samuel 2v 30 God said to Eli, I said indeed that you and your father’s house will stand before me forever, but how I say be it far from it, He said because those who honor, I will honor and those who despise me, I will lightly esteem.
Listen to me very well, this might be a little of the convention.
You know we go about shouting “forever Oh Lord, thy word is settled in heaven, it is settled.”
The word of God is settled, unless God decides to change it. Forever oh Lord they word is settled!
That is true, but our God is in the heavens He does as He pleases, He retains His Sovereignty.
He said I said indeed, “Eli, you and your father’s house you will be a family of priest, He said but now I say your children will be begging for food in the church house. He says I change my mind.
Look when Hezekiah was sick, God sent Isaiah, ‘go and tell him, put your house in order you are going to die’.
And he got to the king, oh King, thus say the Lord, you are a dead man.
The king said, Sir is there anything I can do? No, am a messenger he has spoken, forever oh Lord thy word is settle.
Hezekiah said that is alright, I know what to do. He says Almighty God you better pay attention; I have been serving you whole heartedly and if I die now, the numbers of those who are praising you on earth will be less by one, you better leave me here because you have plenty of angels over there praising You.
God said that is true, He told Isaiah I have changed my mind, go back and tell him, you are not dying anymore.
Who told you God can’t change His MIND?
Am talking to bone crackers now.
If God decides to bless you and you mess up, He can change a blessing to a curse.
Don’t forget am telling you; am talking about God am not talking about father Christmas, am not talking about a sugar daddy, am talking about the Almighty God, the unchangeable changer.
There are many of you here, God has sent to you again and again, words of Prophecy that you know, that you know, that you know this is directly from God to me.
Am sure many of you at times you even tremble when you see how God accurately pinpointed you.
The Lord still ask me to tell someone, He said there is a part of your body got damaged recently God says I should tell you, He will replace it.
Even in judgment He remembers mercy, the Lord says the enemy will soon replace you in the pit where they put you.
Some prophecies will come, you know God is speaking to you, at time you wonder how did the G.O knows.
NO! The G.O didn’t know, God told Him.
God knows everything!
You know this prophesy are yours, you grabbed and yet you wait and nothing seems to be happening, check yourself, because He says whosoever honors me, I will honor and those who despise me , I will lightly esteem.
If you claim to belong to belong to God and you are leaving in sin and you expect his promises to be fulfilled; who is deceiving who?
He is holy God, He is not a magician, that is why tonight, because we are going to spend one solid hour in prayer, because God is going to answer prayer tonight, this month is a turning point for many people.
Before we pray, if you want to give your life to Jesus you come and give your life.
Iam not going to beg you, but am talking specially to those of you who claim you are a child of God and you are behaving like a child of the devil.
If you want His blessing, you better return to Him tonight and call on Him for restoration.
You want His blessing to remain with you and you don’t want it to turn to a curse.
Say Lord, yes I was born again once, but have backslided, I want to come back to you.
So those who want to be born again and those who want to be restored come quickly now…..
As you come, ask Him to save your soul, ask Him to forgive you all your sins, ask Him to give you a brand new beginning.
Those of you who want restoration, I backslide, Lord am back to you, please Lord have mercy on me.
Restore me fully.
The rest of us, shall we please stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them, that the Almighty God will have mercy on them, that He will forgive them their sin today and give them a brand new beginning.
And that all backsliders who are coming to the Lord, the Lord will restore them fully.
… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Father I want to thank you for your word this evening, thank you for this your children who has responded, please accept our thanks in Jesus name.
Father please remember your promise whosoever will come to you, you will in no wise cast out, they have some to you now, Father receive them in Jesus name, forgive them in Jesus name, save their souls tonight in Jesus name.
Let your blood wipe away all their sins in Jesus name, please write their names in the book of life in Jesus name, and all the backsliders who have decided to come back to you, restore fully in Jesus name, I pray that these your children will never go back to the world in Jesus name.
Father I pray that anytime they call on you, you will answer them by fire in Jesus name. Thank you Almighty God, in Jesus name I pray.
Now I want to promise you that by the special grace of God I will be praying for you, you will soon be receiving miracles.
So I am going to need your name, your address and your prayer request.
1. Praise Him for previous blessings; spend quality time to bless him for previous blessings. It is one thing to have food; it is another thing to have appetite to eat it.
2. Father, please command your blessings on my family tonight.
3. Father, please send help to me from heaven above.
4. Father, please send help to me from the four corners of the world.
5. Father, all those trying to tamper with your blessings in my life, frustrate them.
6. Father, bless me irreversibly.
7. Father, please empower me to obey you completely from now on and forever.
8. Father, turn me to a mighty blessing to the whole world.
9. Father, let my children be more blessed than I am.
10. Father, bless my neighbor, bless my nation, bless your church.
11. Personal request.
In Jesus mighty name we have pray.
The Lord will answer all your prayers, He will command His blessing upon your family, the Almighty God will send help to you from heaven, from the four corners of the world, God will send help to you.
Anyone trying to tamper with God’s blessings upon our life shall be frustrated.
God will bless you irreversibly, He will empower you to obey Him, He will turn you to a mighty blessing.
You will be a blessing to the whole world, your children will be more blessed than yourself, God will bless your nations, He will bless your church, He will bless your neighbors, He will bless your friends, He will bless you in the morning, He will bless you in the afternoon, He will bless you in the evening, He will bless you in the night time.
He will bless you physically, He will bless you materially, He will bless you spiritually and he will answer all your prayers.
So shall it be in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
If you receive that let me hear you shout halleluiah!

PRAYER FOR AUGUST CHILDREN:
Those of you who are August Children, you can stand now I want to pray for you.
If you are born in the month of August, let me hear you shout halleluiah! Father i want to commit into your hands your children born in the month of august, the eight month of the year.
Because eight is the number of a new beginning, everyone of them give them a new beginning; a new beginning of joy, a new beginning of success, a new beginning of progress, a new beginning of anointing. A new begging of a closer work with God let it be well with them and let them serve you till the end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen.
Between last night and 6pm this evening, God gave us additional eighteen babies; nine boys and nine girls.
Let the boys shout praise the Lord and let the girls shout halleluiah! So right now the total number of children born during this convention stands at seventy two.
The girls are still leading; thirty five boys, thirty seven girls. Don’t worry boys we will catch up with them.
By the special grace of God, next month Holy Ghost service are for those who are believing God for the fruit of the womb and for those who think they are not as productive as they could be in their various endeavors.
The theme for the Holy Ghost service next month is “GOD WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH”. So next month Holy Ghost service is for fruitfulness.
I have permission from my Daddy to inform you about the Holy Ghost congress coming, from December 16-22 and the theme is “THE OVER FLOW”
Because September is a special one for those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, there will be no Shiloh Hour in December, but there will be Divine Encounter and Shiloh hour next Monday in this place.
Now if you look around you, you will see that not only are the road block by human beings; right left back of the auditorium, you will noticed that where there used to be field to my right, to my left and to my back, they are all covered by people.
Now that tells us one thing; we can no longer delay the construction of the new auditorium.
And the new auditorium cannot be a small one, because even if we have double this auditorium this night, it is already full. I want you to join your faith with mine for the new auditorium that will be three kilometers long and three kilometers wide.
How many of you believed that Jesus will do it? if you believe He will do it let me hear you shout halleluiah! You see because I want you to imagine, what could we have done tonight if it had rain? we would have had a crisis.
So we need a new auditorium urgently and by the grace of God it should be ready this time next year.
How many will join hands with me to build it, because it is going to be very soon, it is going to be more than four times the one we are in now, that is why number one I want to call on those of you who believed you are in the top ten, who by the grace of God can give one billion naira, such people should see my secretary tonight for a very special announcement.
And then there will be some of you who can say I wished I can give a billion but all I can afford is hundred million; such people should also see my secretary after the program tonight.
Then there will be those of us who can give twenty million, fifty million, ten million and five hundred thousand all the way to one hundred naira. I want you to have part in this coming auditorium.
The present one was built by God and God alone.
He wants to use all of us now to build the next one. So I want you to make a decision right now; what will be your contribution towards the new auditorium, I won’t ask you to begin to write on a piece of paper, all i want you to do is to decide within yourself what you want to give and whatever you decide to do, please do it urgently because by the next dry season the work should begin.
How many of you will God trust for this great assignment?
By the special grace of God i will see you in the new auditorium in next year’s convention.
But this time we have to go all out, this is not a small assignment. This is not the time you just give a little; you give the very best unto the Lord.
And am going to need your prayers that my faith will not shake, will you pray for me? Your own faith also will not be shaken in Jesus name.
2 Corinthians 5 v 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things have passed away behold all things have become new.
If there is any single word that symbolizes Jesus, it is the word CHANGE.
Which is why I want to appeal to those of you who are listening by the Internet or the television, if you don’t want a change in your life, switch off right now.
Because I am believing the Most High God that tonight you will encounter Jesus and when you encounter Jesus, there must be a change.
Everything about Jesus Christ spells change. From the moment He was born into this world; change, change, change.
Even the calendar changed; from the moment He came they began to talk about years before Christ and the years after Christ.
When He came by virgin birth, He changed all the rules concerning childbirth.
That is why menopause or no menopause means nothing to Him. That is why you could hear the testimony of a fifty six years old woman lifting up a brand new baby.
Because He says He can bring children out of stones. From the moment He came, walking on water, He changed everything about the law of gravity.
The law that says everything that goes up must come down has nothing to do with Jesus. You encounter Jesus, you go up, you will stay up.
The moment He came, you can boldly say I shall be above only and never beneath.
You encounter Jesus from the moment He came and he changed water into wine, it became clear that if you are linked to Him, you will never be ashamed.
Everything about Him spelt change.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you, relax they will not succeed in disgracing you.
So if I say Jesus, you can clearly answer me and say change, if i say change, you can say Jesus, maybe we should try;
Let’s do it again, because as you are saying it, changes are beginning in your life.
Jesus never leaves a man the way He met Him. In John 5 v 2-9 He met a man who has been sick for thirty eight years, He changed everything; He put an end to his sickness, He put an end to his bondage, He put an end to his loneliness, He changed his level.
The one who used to sleep among sick people, when Jesus met him, He changed his level. I am going to call the name Jesus, and you are going to say NEW LEVEL;
I want you to understand one thing, am not joking here tonight, am sure by now you know am not a joker, you know that whatever am doing, am doing it under the direction of God and God has said, as I hear in my hears so will i do unto you.
So when i asked you to say something and you are saying it, you are saying it concerning yourself, so when i say Jesus; and you say new level, before next month you will testify.
So may I say
He met a man who was possessed by 6,000 demons, living in a tomb but Jesus will never leave you the way He met you.
I prophesy to someone here tonight, where ever you are tonight, that is the lowest you will ever be in your life.
He met this man thoroughly mad, living in a grave yard, by the time He left him, He was totally free. His destiny that was truncated has been restored. He was on a new level.
Now when I say Jesus next time, i want you to shout total freedom.
That is if you want it;
Next time I shout halleluiah! I want you to shout complete restoration,
The devil is in trouble tonight, can I hear somebody shout halleluiah!
In Luke 7 v 11-15 He met a woman a widow who had lost her only son and was going to bury the son, when Jesus met her, He changed everything the direction to the grave yard changed.
Sorrow became joy, tears became laughter.
And when I shout Jesus, be careful how you answer this time, when I shout Jesusi want you to respond New direction.
Next time when I shout Jesus; I want you to shout fullness of joy. That is for only some few people to shout this one.
Fullness of Joy.
In Mark 5 35v 43 Jesus came to Jarius’s house and they told Jarius, its already too late. Jesus say no when i come on the scene, too late becomes not too late.
I beg you tonight, next time i say Jesus loud and clear, I want you to say “my time has come”.
My time has come.
Put your hands together to the Almighty.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, just trust me; I will reverse the irreversible for you.
The focus of Jesus is not your circumstances, His focus is on you. He can do anything, all power belong to Him.
In all these years that I have been working with Him, I have seen Him in action.
I have worked with Him now for more than forty years.
If anybody says there is something Jesus cannot do, I will say the fellow is a fool. He can cure the incurable, He can raise the dead, He can make the lame to walk; we saw one yesterday.
He can make dry bone rise again; we saw one yesterday. He can bring water to come out of the rock; you can see evidence all around you.
I have seen Him in action; I have seen people they say can never have a baby; giving birth to twins, triplet and four and five.
But as powerful as God is, there is something you can call spiritual insulator.
We all know how powerful an electricity can be, you touch a naked wire; you are dead! powerful.
But the moment we wrap a piece of rubber round it, a child can play with it.
The power is still inside but the rubber won’t let it come out.
God can do anything, but Isaiah 59 v 1-2 says sin is an insulator. It says the hand of the Lord is not shortened that He cannot save, His ear is not heavy that He cannot hear, He said but your iniquities have separated between you and your God.
That is why He came; to remove the insulator. He came to wash away sin; that the power of God might be able to penetrate.
He came to change the root; He knows if He can change you, everything else about you will change.
There was a witch, very powerful witch and the law of God says thou shall not suffer a witch to live. You find a witch, you kill the witch.
But Jesus came, and they brought the witch, He changed the witch Luke 8 v 1-3,
The name of the witch is Mary Magdalene. Instead of killing her, he changed her and she became a divine treasurer.
Lift your hand to the Almighty God, change me oh Lord!
You have been known as night crawler, we change your name to child of God. He will channel your accommodation, you who have been dwelling among sinners, you will begin to dwell among saints.
Let me tell you the truth; if you truly encounter Jesus, you will lose your old friends because they won’t understand you anymore, because you won’t talk like they talk anymore. You won’t drink what they drink any more, you won’t even dress the way they dressed anymore.
If you encounter Jesus, everything will so change… If you don’t leave your friends, your friends will leave you.
You know my testimony; before I was born again, I have many friends, some of them sailor. When they travel, when they are returning, they bring me all manners of drinks.
So all my friends when they want to drink, they come to visit. They say we can’t pass the house of the king without saying hello to the king. I didn’t know I was king of alcohol.
Then I became born again and when they come; I say what do you drink? I have Coke, I have Fanta, I have this and that.
They will say to me “you know what we drink; scotch on the rock, five fingers”.
Sorry, i don’t serve that anymore. I lost all my old friends, but look at what God has given me in replacement, look to your right, and look to your left.
If you encounter Jesus, he will bring about change.
If you say you have encounter Jesus and there are no changes, it is a pastor you encountered or maybe an evangelist, not Jesus.
When you encounter Jesus, He will change you from a civilian to a soldier.
The Bible says in 2Timothy 2 v 3-4 He says He has chosen you to be soldier.
If you really encounter Jesus; you will no longer be running from forces of darkness, because if you encounter Him, He said in his word, these sign shall follow them that believe, in my name they will cast out demons.
You will be the one driving them out; they won’t be one frightening you.
You haven’t encounter Jesus, if you say you afraid of witches and wizard and herbalist. If you encounter Him, you will become a warrior with the backing of the Lord of Hosts.
I have told you the story before; some of my children went to hold crusade, somewhere in this country and as they were getting ready, the masquerade in the city came out to disturb them; canning people, beating their drums loudly.
One small girl said I know what my daddy thought me, she moved aside; because it is known that if masquerade comes out and the drums that they are beating after him should break, that masquerade will not come out next year, he will be dead.
This little girl moved aside and said in the name of Jesus, every drum break!
And one by one and by one the drums began to break and the masquerade ran away.
I want you to lift your voice high to the Almighty, and say in the name of Jesus every demon disturbing my life; scatter right now… so shall it be in Jesus name.
When you encounter Jesus He will not only changes you, He will turn you to a change agent.
When He changes you, He expects you to change your city. John 4 v 1-42 a woman had married five times, divorced five times, the sixth time she didn’t even bother about marriage.
She encountered Jesus, Jesus changed her, she changed her city. How can you say you have been born again for ten years and your village, your town remain the way they are?.
No matter how tiny the light is, the light will shine in darkness and darkness will not overcome it.
He changes you, so you can change your country. Look at how many of us who are here, if we take our stand in Jesus Christ seriously, if we really had genuine encounter with Jesus, we are more than enough to change this nation.
When He changes you, He wants you to change the world. But, most importantly He wants to change your final destination.
Every sinner is heading for hell, Psalm 9 v 17 He said the wicked shall be turn to hell but Jesus came and said no, let’s move you towards heaven instead.
But do you know the shocking thing? It is that He won’t force you to change; He won’t force you to go to heaven. You don’t have to go to heaven.
I was talking to one big man not too long ago, we were talking and he kept on arguing, so I said sir, there is no quarrel you don’t have to go to heaven.
If you want to go to hell, the choice is yours.
He said then why are you begging me to be born again, why are you begging me to give my life to Jesus, I Laughed, I said begging? am not begging you, am warning you! But if you want to go to hell; bye, bye.
There were two thieves on the cross, nailed with Jesus Christ both of them heading for hell, Jesus stood in their midst and one began to ridicule Him; I thought they say you are a prophet why don’t you deliver yourself and deliver us here?
The second one said, you are on your way to hell and you are still talking like this?
He turned to Jesus and said “I don’t know if it is too late but if you get to your kingdom, if you can remember me, I will be grateful”
At that very moment change came. Jesus said you are destined for hell but I take you to heaven.
Jesus means change, but He won’t force you. And believe me honestly I am not begging you either but am warning you.
The Bible says when we consider the terror of the Lord, we persuade men. Am sure you want to ask me, pastor, have you been to hell before?
no! Am not going there at all
But in 1980, I asked the Lord to give me a glimpse of hell. He said son, I won’t give you one, I will give you three; I don’t have the time to tell you the three I will tell you just one.
Some of you will remember the incident; there was fuel shortage in Lagos so the Molue drivers were buying petrol in Jerry cans.
One day, a bus was going to Lagos, He stopped at a bus-stop and dropped a woman but the son of the woman was going to school in the same bus, as the bus climbed over Yaba bridge, it lost control and fell on the side of the door and caught fire.
The boy inside the bus was crying my mother, mother! till he burnt to death and the Lord told me, “in HELL people will cry for help but there will be nobody to help them”.
I pray for you my brothers and sisters; you will never go to hell in Jesus name.
Jesus means change! He will change the sick to the healed. He will change the bound to the freed; He will change failure to success. Change sorrow to joy and changed hell to heaven.
But let me conclude with this; you can’t discuss Jesus completely in one hour, if you decide to have an encounter with Jesus, you must be willing to come under a new management.
He said come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy lade, I will give you rest, but you must take my yoke upon you.
If I say Jesus, your answer should be new management, before you encounter Jesus; your affairs were managed by Satan and yourself.
When you give your life to Jesus, when you encounter Jesus, there can be only one master left and His name must be Jesus.
My father used to say whoever is your master is the one who will take care of you with whatever he has.
If Satan is your master he will take care of you with sickness. With fear, with night mares with all kinds of problem.
If Jesus is your master He will take care of you with health, with joy, with peace, with all manner of blessings.
So before you answer me this time think, because when I say Jesus this time, the answer this time the answer must be new management.
And if you don’t want a new management, don’t answer me.
As the Almighty God lives who has called me and sent me to you, you will never spend for Satan again, you will never serve Satan again. Demons will see you from now on and run in Jesus name.
I tell you one story and I will close; some of you know the story; I was invited by a king to come and preach at his thanks giving.
I went and as I was getting ready, his chiefs began to come, dressed in their regalia of their various secret societies, the ushers saw them coming and ran to me, sir are we going to allow these people in the church?
I said of course, put them on the front row; where Jesus will be able to reach them quickly and I changed my sermon immediately.
You see many of you think that Jesus is just a lamb, He is also the lion of Judah. I preached a kind of sermon I had not prepared to preached.
I preached about mount Carmel, confrontation between Elijah and the prophet of Baal, by the time I finished, because I know who my master is, I said am challenging everyone of you, if you can use all your powers to make one of my tire go flat, I gave them the number of my car, I said I will surrender to your God.
If you can’t do it you must surrender to my God.
.. . And then I gave the altar call, the second in command to the king, who is the leader of all the secret society was the first one to come forward.
When the other chiefs saw him going, they followed him. after service the king said, E.A lets go and follow this man up maybe he didn’t understand what you said, we got there, Kabeyesi said do you know what you have just done, he said of course, you have surrender your life to Jesus? He said yes.
The king said why? He said ha! you see a small boy like this challenging all of us, who doesn’t know there must be somebody behind him! He said it is the one behind him that i have surrender to.
Tonight am asking you come under a new management. A management of the King of kings, the management of the Lord of lords, the management of the Lord of host, the management of the Everlasting Fathers, the management of the Prince of peace, the management of the One who has never lost a war, the management of the Rock of ages, the management of the One who has no being and has no ending.
And like those of you who have ever heard me tell the story, thirty days later, He was an old man, he died.
ln his life, he had severed the devil, he was heading for hell.
He encountered Jesus thirty days before he died and now he is in heaven.
New management must be your decision tonight I know the altar call has been made before or you have just decided now that I must surrender to this new management.
I know the altar call has been made before, some of us might come late or you have just decided to give your life to Jesus, and you want to surrender to this new management, come to the altar and give your life to Jesus, come under a new management, and you really want to give your life to Christ, come and stand before me and I will pray for your salvation.
As you come begin to call on him and say Father, I want to come under a new management of the Lord Jesus.
I don’t want to have anything to do with the devil anymore, I want you to save my soul and I will serve you from now on.
I told you yesterday, if you don’t want to clap for Jesus don’t clap, if you want to clap then do it with all your might.
He doesn’t want anything lukewarm, you are either cold or you are hot.
As you come begin to pray don’t wait for the others, cry to God and say Lord save my soul, I want to come under a new management, I want to come under the management of the Lord Jesus Christ, I don’t want to have anything to do with the devil any more.
Please stretch your hand towards this people that the Almighty God will give them a brand new beginning and He will change them from sinner to saint and they will never go back into the world.
Pray for them.
Ask the Almighty mighty to save your soul, let him have mercy on you and save your soul…. in Jesus mighty name i have prayed.
Savior I want to thank you for your word, and I want to thank you for all these your children who has come forward tonight, those in front here and those at the various altars, please Lord save their souls in Jesus name.
Let your blood wipe away their sins in Jesus name. Write their names in the books of life in Jesus name. Give everyone of them a new beginning in Jesus name and from now on, any time they call on you; please answer them in Jesus name. Thank you Father, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen
Loud and clear, say Father, everything you have to change in me, so that i will make it to heaven, change it tonight; my way of thinking, my way of dressing, the kind of friends, everything you have to change so I can make heaven, change it tonight. Change without a single exception. And if I don’t want it to go gently, change it by force, change me completely…. in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
In that name that is above every other name, every change necessary in your life so that you can make it to heaven, God will do it tonight in Jesus name.
Any association, any link that can make sure you don’t make it to heaven the Almighty God will destroy it tonight.
In the mighty name of Jesus, any change that God needs to make in your life that doesn’t want to happen easily, God will do it by force in Jesus name, so shall it be, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
And as usual I know there will be some of you because you are so super spiritual, you may not be interested in what am about to do but am obeying my Daddy and I have discovered that when He asked me to do something that may look foolish to some people, I get results.
You see every miracle you need was purchased for you at the cross. As He hung on the cross, according to Peter 2v 24 the Bible says as He carried your sin on the cross, suddenly His stripes began to make you whole.
As He hung on the cross and the blood began to flow, the Bible says your victory over the devil became available.
He said they overcome the devil by the Blood of the Lamb. As He hung on the cross; completely naked, the Bible says He became poor that you might become rich.
As He hung on the cross, your breakthrough became available.
As He hung on the cross, the Bible says Jesus Christ said if I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.
As they lifted Him up on the cross, your promotion became available.
So Daddy asked me to do something tonight.
If you don’t believe me, don’t participate, He asked me to make a little cross and I obeyed.
This is the cross; it is made of ordinary wood, there is nothing hidden there, there is nothing written on it. It is not even painted because the cross on which Jesus Christ died was not made of gold, it was made of ordinary wood.
Now Daddy asked me to tell you; as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so that those who looked on it were healed, He asked me to lift up this cross and give you some minute to pray.
Whatever you want God to do, ask Him now. Please make sure you asked for the most important one first…. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
And then Daddy said to me, it is because of the cross that anointing came, because Jesus said it is expedient for you that I go away, because if I don’t go away the Holy spirit will not come.
So you get out your handkerchief and wave it to the cross. You just pray to the Almighty to let His anointing flow into the handkerchief…. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
When I was waiting on the Lord for this program, He gave me some word for this program because I wrote them down;
1. He said someone will be here tonight, he said by the time I finish with you, every body part of your body will be like brand new.
2. He said there will be someone tonight; He said from now on, I will give you beauty for ashes.
3. He said there will be someone here tonight; He said you will soon know the full meaning of oil of joy.
4. He said there will be someone here tonight, He said you will get a break through very soon that you will know that this is too big. He asked me to tell you, fifty percent of it belongs to Him.
5. Then He says there will be someone here tonight, He said one day truly great men will marvel at your greatness.
6. He also told me, He said because of what am about to do for you, for a whole month, all those who come to your house will be shouting halleluiah!
7. Finally He said to me, He said for the rest of the year, every month you will have a testimony.
In the mighty name of Jesus, everything you have asked for tonight, receive the answer in Jesus name.
Everything that Jesus bought for you on the cross, receive it tonight in Jesus name.
Anything that will stand between you and anything you have asked for, may them be destroyed right now in Jesus name and may your testimonies begin this month in Jesus name. So shall it be in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Shout the name of Jesus and I want to hear you say
Heaven at last;
Let me hear you shout another halleluiah!
Glory be to God.
Pastor E. A. Adeboye

GOD WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH
Genesis 21 1-7 And the Lord visited Sarah as He has said, and the Lord did unto Sarah has he had spoken. For Sarah conceived and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to Him. And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac
And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old as God has commanded him. And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. And she said, who will have said unto Abraham that Sarah should have given children suck? For I have born him a son in his old age.
Turn to the neighbor to your right and to the left and say I promise you God will make you laugh.
Sarah said; God has made me to laugh and all who hear will laugh with me.
The story of the laughter of Sarah as you know very well began in Genesis 18 v 1 -14 you will see how one day Abraham at the age of 99 was seating in front of his house and he looked up and saw three men just passing by.
When they got to the front of his tent, they hesitated for a while, they stood briefly. Abraham looked up and realized that this were not ordinary men, so he ran to meet them, bow down before them and invited them to his house.
He said, come let me give you some water to drink, let me wash your feet and if you don’t mind let me give you some food to eat, because i know that is the reason why you have come to your servant.
And the Almighty God who have said if He is hungry he won’t ask any man, accepted the invitation; went, eat and when He finished eating, He decided to say thank you to Abraham and the thank you He said was that in nine month time Sarah will have a son.
Sarah heard it and laughed, she laughed because her husband was ninety nine plus, herself was ninety and it was a long time ago that Abraham turned in her direction to say Sarah how now? So she thought that this people must have enjoyed the meal and they were trying to make fun of her, she laughed.
And God asked Sarah why did you laughed, she said I didn’t laugh at all, what you said wasn’t funny, but God said I know you laughed but whether you believe me or not, nine month from now you will have a son.
And what God said came to past, that was why she said God has made me to laugh.
The Lord has sent me at the beginning of the Redeemed year to tell somebody here tonight; The Almighty God will make you to laugh.
God makes you laugh, number one when you get an unexpected divine visitation. It is one thing for a man to visit God, like many of us are doing tonight; we have come to pay God a visit. But it is another thing for God to visit a man.
It is even beautiful enough when God is visiting a congregation, but it is better still when God decided in a large crowd to visit somebody in particular like in John 5 v 2-9 the Bible tells us about the pool of Bethsaida and the multitude of sick people that were there and when Jesus pay that place a visit, He visited only one particular person who has been sick for thirty eight years, and after dealing with the case of that person, He left the place.
I have a feeling deep within me, that there is somebody special tonight here tonight and God is going to pay you a special visit.
In Mark 10 v 46-52 the Bible says Jesus came to Jericho and as He was coming out of Jericho in other words He didn’t do anything in Jericho because the man He came to visit was not inside the city; the man was by the road side begging, so He came out of Jericho, saw that one person, dealt with the problem of that one person and continued with his journey.
I’m going to remind you of some testimonies tonight to encourage you to know that you might be that person that God is interested in.
I have told you the story of a woman whose mother’ in law went to the market and as the mother in law was coming she ran to meet her and the mother law said take, eat and block your womb. And the woman laughed and said what kind of joke is this?
How I can I block my womb with a loaf of bread? And then innocently she went ahead and eat the bread. And from that day on her menses stopped and of course she became what we will call barren.
Then it happened that we tried to hold a program in their city, Oyo to be specific. And she heard we were coming, she decided to wait on God to pray.
The afternoon we were to arrive she fell asleep and had a dream and saw some men dressed like doctors, came into the room and they operated her and she saw them pulling out a long rope out of her belly, at the end of the rope was a black loaf of bread and they sowed her up and left the room and she woke up.
When she woke up, lo and behold her bed was soaked with blood, her menses had returned. The last I heard concerning her, I think she had five children already.
In the name that is above every other name, if God is going to visit just one person alone, that person will be you.
God makes you laugh; whenever He accepts your offering; Abraham made an offer to God and God accepted. According to Genesis 4 v 3-5 God does not have to accept every offering.
Cain brought an offering, God rejected it. Abel brought an offering and God accepted the offering. Whenever God accept your offerings a miracle will follow.
In 2king 4 v 8-17 the Bible tells us the story of the Shulamite woman who saw the man of God passing by and made an offer; come and eat in my house.
The Bible says the man of God said ‘I don’t need your food but the woman insisted, the Bible says she constrained him, compel him, she restrained him.
To come to her house to eat, the man of God eat and kept coming back. Then the woman said instead of the man of God coming for occasional lunch, let’s build him an apartment so that he can come and stay. And instead of lunch alone, he will be having breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Then one day, God spoke to the man of God saying; you have been eating this woman’s food , when are you going to do something about her problem?
The man of God called her ‘woman what can I do for you?”
She said I don’t need anything, I am comfortable, am well connected. ‘The man of God pressed further and discovered she was barren and the man of God said wonderful! I can give you what money cannot buy.
I am praying for someone here tonight, that thing which you need that will make your joy full, you will receive it tonight in Jesus name.
You know the rest of the story, the man of God said woman you are going to have a son nine month from now. And nine months from then, the son came.
Whenever God accept an offering a miracle follows 2Chronicle 1 v 6-15 the Bible tells us about Solomon offering to God a thousand burnt offering, God was pleased and the Bible said that night God paid Solomon a visit.
I am believing God for someone tonight that before you wake up again, you will get a divine visitation.
I want to encourage you because I know many of you were not here for divine encounter on Monday, I want you to make sure you got the tape for last Monday divine encounter we explain something to you.
Whenever you give God a sacrificial offering, an offering you know is sacrificial, God is bound to respond and usually He responds with a divine visitation.
Years ago as a young Christian, my father in the Lord said there is a great need in the Church that must be met urgently so he called those of us who were workers, those of us who were children of God, he said go and close your account we need the money now.
Monday morning my wife and I went to close our accounts and brought the money.
The following Sunday at the workers meeting, papa said thank God the need was met but how many of you closed your account?
I raised my hand, my wife raised her hand.
We looked round nobody else raised their own hands, and I looked at my wife and a thought came to my mind, I said I hope we have not mixed madness with this thing we have accepted, then I heard God spoke to me.
He said “my son, it is a test; because you have done what nobody has done, when I take you to where nobody has been, nobody will be able to complain”.
There is somebody here tonight; God will take you to somewhere you can never dream of.
When God accept your offering, a miracle will follow!
God makes you laugh, when the All Sufficient One decides to say thank you, He will make sure miracles follow you.
After He accepted the offering of Abraham, He decided to say thank you.
You see in Psalm 50 v 7-12 the Almighty God said if I am hungry I don’t need to tell anyone, He said all the beast of the forest are mine, the cattle on a thousand hills they are mine.
If I want to eat I can get as much as I want. But then when the One who says He eats nothing, receives an offering from you, particularly an offering you yourself will know it is a sacrificial offering, the Bible says they that sow in tears will reap in joy, and God decides to say thank you. No doubt about it, laughter will follow.
In Luke5 v 1 7 when He borrowed the boat of Peter to preach from the boat, after He finished preaching He asked him to launch into the deep to throw his net.
Peter threw only one net and caught so much fish, his boat and the boat of his friend were full to sinking point.
In John6 v 5-13 the Bible says that there was a multitude, Jesus has been preaching to the multitude and then they were hungry it was time for them to eat and a small boy surrendered his lunch, talk about sacrificial offering!
The boy had just his little lunch but he surrender it to Jesus, after Jesus multiplied the bread and the fish and fed the people there were twelve baskets left over.
I have asked my little children when they were younger, what happened to the twelve basket and fish? And I got various answers and one of the answers I got was that there were twelve apostles, so each apostle got one basket each.
I laughed; then I told then yes there were twelve basket and they were twelve apostles each apostles carried the twelve basket to the house of the boy because the word of God says all rivers run into the sea and the sea is not full, He said because where the river is coming from that is where the water will return.
The boy who made the sacrifice must have gone home with twelve hefty men carrying baskets full of food.
And I’m sure when the mother saw him with all the basket of food, there must have been laughter in that house that day.
There is a house here today where there will be laughter before the end of this month.
When we were building this auditorium, I remember God told me we want to cover this auditorium it was an open space that is why we use to call it arena.
The Lord said to me; son, we are going to cover this place I was happy, glory be to God.
But then He said you are not going to take an offering, you won’t call people together and say give me money towards the auditorium.
How are we going to build it? He said just you and I. Up till that moment I used to consider myself a man of faith, so when God said I will take no offering for this work I ran to the toilet I was frightened!
Well, in His wonderful way He began to send help.
One of the people that He sent, is a Bishop from another organization who came to visit and saw the work in progress and went away and came back with a cheque of (25) million naira and said daddy I must support this work.
He gave me the twenty five million naira I prayed for him from the bottom of my heart, less than six month later he came back with a testimony that in a way he could not described it God replace the twenty five ( 25) million naira for twenty five (25) million dollars.
He will make you laugh.
God makes you laugh, when all his prophecies concerning you become fulfilled in a single day.
God had been talking to Abraham for twenty five years; Abraham, can you count the number of sand, no lord, ‘so shall your children be’.
Abraham, can you count the sand by the sea shore? ‘ No Lord’, “so shall your children be”. Twenty five years! But in a single day all the prophecy became fulfilled.
Thank you father!
The Lord says there is a lady here, that you felt a sudden movement in your body, He asked me to tell you that demon that has been destroying the seed of your husband has been dealt with.
Numbers 23 v 19 the Bible says God is not a man that He should lie, He is not the son of man that He should repent, once He has spoken it is a settled matter.
And then the Bible says God has a timetable for everything Eccl 3v1- 8, yes when God promises He will bring it to past, but everything at his own season.
However whenever God decide to pay you a special divine visit, whenever God accept your offering, whenever God decide to say thank you, whatever the time that was originally scheduled for the manifestation of the promises will be brought to now.
You see; as far as God is concerned because He is the Alpha and the Beginning as well as Ending, the beginning of time and end of time coincide in Him, if He wants, what He plans to do in ten years’ time, He can do it today and there is no one who can quarry him.
And I’m rejoicing with someone that at long last the time to favor you has come.
God can fulfill His prophecies in a single day.
I have told you the story before the first time we went to Tulsa in 1979 to attend Kenneth Haggins camp meeting, my father in the Lord and five others.
Himself, myself and four other people went to this program on Saturday. Then on Sunday we decided to go and worship in one of the churches nearby, we are there and because we were visitor they allowed us to sit in the front, papa couldn’t understand English, so I was interpreting.
And you know the way the American preacher preaches, they don’t stay in one spot like me, they move around a bit.
And as this preacher was preaching all of a sudden he came down from the altar stood in front of papa and began to say to him: thus said the Lord,
“everything I told you is about to come to past”
then he turned round and went back to the altar and continued preaching.
Papa asked me, ‘what did he say?.
I said when we get home.
Because I want to hear the rest of the sermon.
When we got home, Papa said what did the man said?
I said the man said” “the promises of God for you they are about to come to past”.
Papa began to cry; I waited for him to finish crying, to ask what are the promises?
Then he told me the promises, how the Almighty God told him that through him, he will start a Church and that the church will spread throughout the whole world.
If God says that is about to happen, well! Papa was weeping, I was happy, I was glad that the Almighty God has brought me to a Church that God said He will spread throughout the whole world.
Less than one year later papa was dying and he called those who were by his death bed and said tell the congregation on Sunday that from now on they will begin to laugh.
That was some thirty something years ago, today by the grace of God; The Redeem Christian church of God is in one hundred and seventy four nations of the world.
God made a promise, He fulfilled his promise and today we are laughing.
We are laughing and I tell you one of the reasons we are laughing. I say this to encourage someone.
I have just returned from a long journey to the far East Malaysia and considering the situation in Malaysia you will understand that I find it incredible to discover that Malaysia now has forty five branches of The Redeemed Christian church of God.
I held a Holy Ghost rally, my children told me they have rented a very big hall I thought they were joking, I got there it was a massive hall, the place was jammed, I gave the altar call two thousand four hundred people gave their lives to Jesus in one night, if that didn’t cause you to laugh I don’t know what will cause you to laugh.
Let me hear some shout halleluiah!
I’m believing God for someone here tonight, all the prophecies that you have been writing down, before the end of this month, all of them will be fulfilled in Jesus name.
God makes you laugh; when He decides to overrule your doubts. Sarah laughed when God spoke and said you are going to have a son, she laughed she didn’t believe,
And it is true that the Bible says the just shall live by faith.
In fact God repeated it four times, Habakkuk 2 v 4, Romans 1 v 17, Galatians 3 v 11 and Hebrews 10 v 38. Four times God said the just shall live by faith. That means living by faith is so important to God that He repeated it four times.
However God said in Isaiah 43 v 13 He said I will work who will let, in order words God says when I make up My mind that I want to do something, nobody can hinder Me, whether you believe Me or not.
If I say I am going to do something, I will do something. Sarah laughed, what I say I will do, I will do.
I know there might be some people here tonight, who will say I have heard God promised before and nothing has happened, I don’t believe He is going to do anything now.
Well, I have good news for you, tonight in particular it doesn’t matter your doubt, my God will over rule your doubt.
In 2King 4 v 8-17 when Elisha said to the Shunamite woman you will have a son in nine months’ time, she said to the man of God, ‘man of God don’t deceive me’, that means I don’t believe you.
But Elisha didn’t say anything after that one, God has spoken the matter is settled.
I know there might be some of you here who didn’t believe me at all, but I’m not the one who chose the theme for this month, Daddy chose the theme and He has made up His mind that;
There is someone here tonight, you are have been weeping every month, this time you are going to laugh.
Several years ago, a young man came to my office, brought by his friend and said sir, I have a big problem, what is the big problem?
The wife became mad and not only just mad, she is gone completely naked into the street.
And according to Yoruba believe, if somebody is mad and the madness is still within the house it can be handled, but when the madness has taken the madness nakedly to the market place that is madness for life.
So he said the wife has been mad publicly. And they have taken the woman and bundled her to the house of an herbalist somewhere in Kwara State.
So they gave me the address, I went, saw the woman and prayed and the husband was informed that yes I came and I prayed but the prayer didn’t last five minute.
How could five minute prayer deal with something this serious? The husband says let’s take the woman to physiatrist hospital and they took the woman to the specialist hospital, as God will have it, the specialist there says let observe her before we know what we I’ll give her, they observed her for two weeks.
And then they sent for the husband, ‘ sir if you say something is wrong with this woman something is wrong with you, because we have not given her any drug and injection and she is normal as normal can be normal.
I don’t care whether you believe or not tonight, in the name that is above every other names, this month you shall laugh!
God makes you laugh when He turns all His prophecies to a single decree, you see when you are hearing, “thus saith the Lord” that is a prophecy but when the Almighty God just decided that “let there be light” there will be light, there is no need for waiting.
In Psalm 33 v 8-9 the reason the whole earth should fear before God is that whenever He spoke it is done. All He has to do is just say it, and it is done.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said some people are convinced that you are going to drown in sorrow; God says this month I will surprise them.
The Lord asks someone here tonight to get ready for a miracle that will open doors to many other miracles.
Like I said in Genesis 1 v 1-3 the Bible says in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, the earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep and the Spirit of the Lord moves along the face of the water and God said let there be light.
When did the light come?
There was no need to vote on it, there was no delay because God decreed it.
Some of you will remember the testimony; it wasn’t too long ago now when husband and wife stood here to testify.
Two of them came to me and said daddy we are believing God for the fruit of the womb, I said ok what kind of baby do you want?
The husband said a boy; the wife said a girl and they spoke simultaneously. So I said okay maybe we better made it a twin then; one boy and one girl.
Both of them said amen, that was the end of the discussion, nine month later the husband was carrying the boy, the wife was carrying the girl.
Let me ask you tonight, how do you want your babies? So shall it be in Jesus name.
God makes you laugh when He decided to show His Almightiness, He said to Sarah,
He said you laughed,
She said I didn’t laugh,
He said you laughed! He said I know why you laugh;
He said but is anything too hard for the Lord?
Is there anything the Almighty cannot do?
Luke 1 v 37 the Bible says for with God nothing shall be impossible;
He is not talking about with man, He is not talking about with your husband, He is not talking with you pastor, He is not talking with your general overseer, He said with God nothing shall be impossible.
Thank you my Lord, the Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said you’ve had your own share of shame and disgrace, he says get ready for his season of glory.
Thank you Daddy, Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said your progress has been painfully slow he says I promise you, you will be flying.
Matthew 3 v 9 tells us that the God we are talking about is able to produce children out of stones!
That is God, and you are hearing words like this, the enemies tries to tell you what the doctor has said, the condition of your husband, the condition of your wife, the problems in the past, no, take your eyes off men.
Look unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith and He will show you, He is The Almighty.
Maybe I should remind you of the testimony, of a sister who was barren for several years and the relative of the husband called the husband and said to him, stop wasting your time your wife will never have a child.
Forget because the evil ones have tampered with her womb.
And she came to one Holy ghost service like this and the word of God came and said;
There is someone here, they said you will never have a child but the Almighty God said, get ready for a set of twins.
She grabbed it.
The following month she was pregnant, she went to the hospital to check; they said, yes you are pregnant, we don’t know how it happened, but you are pregnant.
She said no, God said twins.
They said okay no argument.
She went back a couple of month later, they checked and say ‘now we can see twins’.
And because they were well off they decided to go abroad for deliveries they don’t want to take chances.
And the husband told the doctors, ‘I don’t want a situation where they will say the woman was in labor and one child died, bring out the children, do it by operation, so they put the woman to sleep and brought out the set of twins.
When she woke up she saw everybody looking at her strangely.
She said what is the problem?
Where are my children? They said no problem your children are fine.
The couple told the doctor, we don’t need more children tie the womb.
The doctor said I have performed more than four thousand deliveries, this is the first time that am seeing a woman deliver a set of twins without a womb, because when they say tie the womb, he searched and said where did I get this children from?
There is no womb!
There is somebody here tonight, it doesn’t matter how hopeless they say your case is God will proof himself to be the Almighty.
God makes you laugh when He makes the impossible possible.
In Jeremiah 32 v 27 He said behold I am the Lord the God of all flesh, is anything too hard for me?
Exodus 17 v 3-6 tells us that this God can bring water out of the rock.
Now I want all of us to please take note, that yes tonight we are focusing on the fruit of the womb but this thing is much more than the fruit of womb; this particular program is for those of you who are tired of fruitless effort.
This is the special night for those of you who are tired of failure.
This is a special night for those people who have tried their best in business, in academic in everything and found that they have labor but they have nothing to show for it.
God will make you laugh.
There is a God who can bring water out of the rock and that God is here tonight, determined to make you laugh.
I tell you a story to encourage you, I told you that several years ago anytime I was visiting London one of my son there who was a taxi driver will come and meet me and take me to where I will stay.
And as we go home along the route there was a place there where they were selling second hand Rolls Royce cars and I will sit in the taxi and look in that direction and say one day I am going to drive one of this thing out of that place and my boy will say amen. (You know the kind of amen)
Keep on dreaming; if you want to deceive yourself go ahead, without my taxi you can’t even get home.
But one day we were passing through the same place and I looked in that direction and say one day and going to drive out one of this Rolls Royce out of that place and he said amen as usual.
Then a little bit down the street there was a shirt where they were selling clothe, they put up a big sign SALE,
So I said let’s stop here I may be able to get some shirts and we got there and I began to look at the shirt, twenty five pounds, thirty pounds, forty pounds, so I said to my son, this stupid people I thought they were doing SALE, let’s go.
As we moved towards the taxi, my boy began to laugh, now I understand why he was laughing; here is a man who cannot buy a twenty five pounds shirt and he wanted to buy a Rolls Royce, he was laughing. I didn’t say anything to him.
I looked up to God and said I hope you know this boy is laughing at both of us?
He is laughing at me and you are my employer, he says that there is no way in life I can ever ride a Rolls Royce, over to you.
Some months later I travelled to American and as I was passing London on my way back and as usual he was there to receive me.
He carried my bag; and as he was about to put my bags in his taxi, one of my son showed up and said, daddy please don’t put that into the taxi, this car is for you, it is second hand but it is a Rolls Royce.
I looked at my son and he looked at me and we began to laugh.
There is somebody here tonight, God will make you laugh!
There are things in your life now that might look totally impossible, the God I serve will make that impossible to be possible in Jesus name.
God makes you laugh when He decides to reverse the irreversible.
In Ezekiel 37 v 1-10 the Bible tells us about a valley full of dry bones and the Bible says lo they were very dry, the Bible says the Spirit of God took the prophet Ezekiel and placed him in the valley of dry bones.
And God asked him, these bones that are dry, very dry can they live?
The man of God said my faith can’t carry this one. God only you can tell and the Almighty God said to the prophet okay, you prophecy, just say to dry bones, live again!
You know the rest of the story, the man of God obeyed and the dry bone came together bone to bone flesh covered them, the man of God prophecy again; the wind blew and what was dry bone became a mighty army, God can reverse the irreversible!
All that is required is for His prophet to prophecy
And I prophecy to you tonight, every irreversible shall be reversed in Jesus name.
The Almighty God said there is someone here tonight, He said by the time I finish with you, even those who are mocking you now will help you shout halleluiah!
Daddy said Lazarus heard My voice and came out of the tomb, He said your womb will hear My voice tonight.
I have told you this story before, this is a night for stories because God is going to make somebody laugh.
Several years ago, I was still a young lecturer at the University of Lagos, I went to Nsukka to mark WAEC exams.
I didn’t go with my car; it was a second hand Dodged Avenger. I wasn’t sure it won’t park up on the way so I didn’t travel with it.
When we finish marking, I came and I stood on the road side, in Asaba, looking for a lift for somebody to bring me to Lagos.
Whenever I saw a small old car coming, I will wave and they will just zoom past, none of them waited.
Finally I saw a Mercedes Benz 280 brand new coming. I didn’t bother to wave because I say this one is not going to wait.
And he zoomed past me, I think I must have lifted my hand weakly and the driver who happen to be the owner must have seen my hands going up a little and he stopped and reversed to where I was.
And he was one of these people who have either have spent several years in America or just like to speak like an American.
He said, “You want a lift?”
I said yes sir.
He said, “Get in men!”
So I got in men!
I put my little bag on the floor in the car and since he was driving and there was a friend sitting beside him, so I found myself sitting in the owner’s corner.
The whole thing was air-conditioned.
One moment I was in the sun in another moment I was sitting in the owner’s corner, the cool air was very, very refreshing.
I felt like laughing but in that kind of situation you better don’t laugh out loud.
Because I don’t want to laugh and I don’t want the man to look back and say what is funny dude?
He brought me to Lagos and said “where do you want to stop?
I said anywhere sir, I am already in Lagos,
He said no, give me your address, and he drove me all the way home.
After he has left that was when it was time for me to laugh!
There is laughter waiting for you at home, you are going to laugh! God will make you laugh.
God makes you laugh when He stops all the mockers;
I wasn’t there but I could imagine when all of a sudden the belly of Sarah began to bulge, that those people who had written her off looked at her and said Mama Sarah must have eaten excess pounded yam.
And she must have been laughing quietly, keep mocking you will soon see, the pregnancy became seven month, eight month.
I’m sure some of them must have been looking at father Abraham; and saying…
What are you looking at?
Why don’t you take this woman to the physician?
Can’t you see your wife is sick?
They though it was sickness they didn’t know it was a bundle of joy.
God will surprise your mockers.
Sarah said it in Genesis 21 v 7 who would have said that Sarah will give child suck? Who would have believed that I will ever have course to rejoice.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said the pendulum of your life has begun a new upward swing and it will never come down again.
In Samuel 2 v 1-5 Another woman who was considered barren Hannah by name sang a song to the Almighty God, She said at long last God has enlarge your mouth over your adversaries.
God will enlarge your mouth over your adversaries.
You probably remember the story of a woman who had four daughters, and all daughters are not married.
The youngest of the four I think was twenty eight, thirty and thirty two. They were like that in that series.
This was a woman committed to evangelism, every morning, very early in the morning she will go round the street ringing her bell and say everybody wake up, give your life to Jesus, surrender your life to Jesus.
One day one neighbor said woman why don’t you stop deceiving people. Saying that your Jesus can do everything,
If your Jesus can do everything, how come you have four daughters and not one of them is married?
I pray for you today, everything in your life that is causing people to say where is your God, my God will remove it tonight.
That was when the old woman came and said help me man of God pray for me what do I do.
And the Spirit of God asks me to ask some question and I discover that at the time of ignorance when each daughter was born, each one was dedicated to the IFA oracle.
I said I see, the Almighty God asked me to tell IFA to take his hands off these daughters of God, we prayed a simple prayer, within one year all four daughters were married and as they were getting married pregnancies followed.
Everything in your life that is not making your joy to be completely full, my Father will deal with it tonight in Jesus name.
God makes you to laugh when He decides to do something completely new.
It was something completely new for a ninety year old woman to become pregnant.
It has never happened before, but then in Exodus 14 v 13-28 when God decided to open the red sea it was something that had never happen before.
In Daniel 3 v 14-30 when Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego went into the fiery furnace without being burnt it is clear something completely new, something that had never happened before.
So I don’t know what is the situation you find yourself in whether physically, materially or spiritually, God will do something new.
Some of you , particularly will remember a young man who when he was born had only one testicle and the parent in an attempt to help him, took him to a herbalist to try and see if something can be done about it and in the process the herbalist destroy the only good testicle.
Which automatically means now the boy can never have a child because no testicle at all.
Then we held a program at Row Park, it was the first program I held as general overseer, Row Park.
And while the program was on, the boy felt something is happening under him.
And he did a check and discovered that instead of one testicle they were two.
The day he came to see me in the office to share his testimony he came with his wife and the wife was pregnant.
He said sir, do you want me to show you?
I said there is no need I can see the evidence.
Something brand new, creative miracle will be your portion here tonight in Jesus name.
God makes you laugh when He causes you to sing a new song,
In Exodus 15 v 1 -18 after the opening of the red sea and the children of Israel who the night before were afraid that they were going to die, they were now saying there is no one like our God.
Nine month before, Sarah was saying how can I ever have a child, but after nine month he said the Lord as made me to laugh.
The Almighty God is about to put a new song in the mouth of someone here tonight.
Now I will close with the testimony of one of my pastor that we heard earlier this year; they have been married for twenty six years no fruit of the womb, then the almighty God moved in and now she could say to people.
Do you see these three children; the name of the first one is Miracle, Sign, the name of the third is Wonders and all three are mine.
Somebody is about to sing, I was barren now I have triplet. I was condemned to die, now am completely whole again. I was a tenant now I am a landlord. They thought I was going to drown in sorrow, now see me shouting halleluiah!
I can hear the sound of music coming from the home of many people who are here tonight, I can hear of singing:
I am serving the God of miracle
I know, yes I know
I am serving the God of miracle
I know, yes I know
Who is the one who will be singing that song?
Let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Let me conclude; the Bible says in Psalm 16 v 11 He says in the presence of God there is the fullness of joy and at His right hand there are pleasure forever more.
But in the same book of Psalm, Psalm 16 v 4 He said the sorrow of those who run after other gods shall be multiplied.
On one side in the presence of God there is the fullness of joy, on the other side the sorrow of those who run after other gods shall be multiplied and the choice is yours.
Do I want to be on the side of God and enjoy fullness of joy, or do I want to run after other gods and have my sorrow multiply?
The choice is yours but you cannot take the two together, like I told you last month those of you who were here, you either serve God hundred percent or serve the devil hundred percent, you can’t combine the two. Impossible!
You are either hundred percent a child of God, absolutely, completely on the side of Jesus or you are hundred percent on the side of the child of the devil, there is no gray area; it is either black or white period.
You cannot serve God and serve the devil at the same time it is not possible at all.
I had a confrontation with a traditional ruler not too long ago; who told me that the reason they worship a particular tree in his town is because it was under that tree that the founder of the town sat when he came to start the town.
I said how long ago was that?
He said about two hundred years ago, he said that is why the tree is scared.
I said Kabeyesi, you want to compare a tree that is two hundred years old tree with the Ancient of Days?
Who planted the tree?
You have to choose, no compromise, if you want to serve God, you serve God hundred percent, I didn’t say there is not going to be persecution, the evidence that you are truly in the light is that darkness will criticize.
You are not serving God until people begin to say you are a fanatic. You must be hundred percent for God, let them know you belong to Jesus Christ.
Let me tell you one thing, if you start a project for God , the enemy must criticize you, darkness must always speak up against light, that is the law.
If you don’t belief me, ask Noah, when God told him to build an ark, what happened?
They mocked him; look at this silly old man, building an ark when there is no rain, where is the river where he will put the thing.
When Nehemiah decided to build the wall of Jerusalem, criticism came from right left and center, everybody trying to make sure the wall will not be built.
One way you will know you are doing what God wants you to do is that the world must criticize you.
If you say you are a Christian and your co friend, your co sinner didn’t say you have accepted madness with religion, I’m not sure you are truly born again.
So tonight you have a choice, on the right; the presence of God there is the fullness of joy, on the left; they that run after other gods shall have their sorrow multiplied, what is your choice?
If you are here tonight and you have not given your life to Jesus Christ before now, come and do so now.
I advise you to choose the side of God that is where joy is.
Come now, the Almighty God is waiting, He will save your soul, He will forgive your sin, He will give you a brand new beginning and you will laugh.
Because God will make you laugh.
So if you want to come begin to come now.
Those of you in the front begin to call on God, ask Him to save your soul ask Him to forgive you your sins, tell Him you are very sorry for all the evils you have done in the past.
Promise Him from now on you will do his will, ask Him to forgive you, ask Him to save your soul.
That from now on He will be your Lord and savior.
The rest of us let us intercede for these people, that God will have mercy on them, that the One who saved your soul will save their own soul also.
Pray for them.
Ask the Almighty God to be merciful unto you, to forgive you all your sins, ask Him to give you a brand new beginning.
… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Father, I want to bless your Holy Name, I want to thank you for your Word, I want to thank you for all these your children who have decided to surrender their lives to you today, please on their behalf accept our thank in Jesus name.
Father you promised that whosoever come to you will not cast out, Father please receive them in Jesus name.
Forgive them in Jesus name, let your blood wipe away their sins.
Write their names in the Book of Life, please Lord don’t let them ever go back into the world, from now on anytime they call on you, answer them by fire, give them a new beginning.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight, I want to promise you that from now on we will be praying for you.
So I am going to need your name, your address and prayer request.
1. Praise Him that your time has come at last
2. The Bible says when God turn the captivity of Zion we were like those that dream, Father please turn my captivity today
3. Father, I will sow in tears, let reap in joy.

For all these your children, double their blessings, double their victories, double their testimonies, double their joy, double their promotions, double their anointing and let it be well with them.
Give them a brand new beginning oh Lord. Let their new year be better than the old one and let them serve you double in Jesus name, thank you almighty God.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
By the grace of God, the last Holy Ghost Service of the year comes up next month because by December we will be having the Holy Ghost congress.
So the first Friday of next month November, is the Holy Ghost Service with the theme: SOUNDS FROM HEAVEN.
Once upon a time a very powerful enemy besieged a city and made things so bad for them that women began to eat their own children.
And the man of God prophesied that the tide will turn within twenty four hours.
For that tide to turn the enemies heard sounds from heaven and they fled.
I’m believing God for every one of you who will be here next month that your enemies will hear sounds from heaven and the siege in your life will be over, the siege in the life of Nigeria will be over.
And the siege in the nations you represent will be over.
So next month Holy Ghost Service is an extremely important one, the Last for this year as we move on to December for the Holy Ghost congress, which will be the best congress we have ever had.
WONDERS OF EXPLOIT:
Daniel 11v32 And as such as do wickedly against the covenant shall be corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploit.
I believe that the greatest wonder of doing exploit is that there is only one thing to do; and what is that one thing?
It is to know God; people that do know their God shall be strong and shall do exploit. In order words to be able to do exploit, you must know God the Father, you must know God the Son, you must know God the Holy Spirit.
And I know that immediately I say that there will be some people who will say hold on; are there three Gods? No! Only one God but He magnifies Himself in three personalities.
How can that be? I give you an example of myself; to my children I’m Adeboye the father, to my mother I’m Adeboye the son, to my wife I’m Adeboye the husband.
I’m I three? No I’m only one, but the way I behave when I’m the father is different from when I’m the son.
And I give you an example, if I have a beautiful crystal drinking glass. And my son is handling it and it falls on the ground and breaks. I will look at my son and say what is wrong with you? Don’t you know that cup is precious to me? Why are you so careless?
If the same cup falls down from the hand of my mother “mama, gently, I hope you are not hurt, sorry ma. The same cup!
The same me!
But the way I react when I’m father, is different from the way I react when I’m son.
And I don’t need to tell you there are things I can do to my wife that I can never do to my mother.
So when God the father is manifesting according to the word of God, the earth trembles.
Hills melt, enemies scatter.
When God decides to arise as God the Father, when He wants to manifest as God the Son, He comes as a Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.
He comes as the Fourth man in the fiery furnace, which quenches the power of fire.
He comes as a gentle meek person.
He said come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.
When He manifests as the Holy Spirit; here comes the consuming fire, I mean all you need to do is find out what happened when they brought Samson bound to the enemies and the Holy Spirit came mightily upon him and the ropes that were binding him were burnt as if by fire.
So you need to know God in His various manifestations, God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.
So for the few minutes I am going to encourage you if you want to do exploit to know about God the Father.
There are many things about God the Father.
I mean we can spend the whole week trying to study about God the Father. But you know one thing about Him, at least He is the One who made heaven and earth Genesis 1 v 1-3 and the One who said let there be light and there were light.
And because He is the One who created heaven and earth and everything that was in the earth and in the heavens, the Bible refers to Him in Genesis 19-14 and calls Him the Possessor of heaven and earth.
You need to know God the Father as the Possessor of heaven and earth.
He is the Possessor of all things and the Lord Jesus Christ referred to him in John 14 v 1; He said in my Father’s house there are many mansions.
This understanding of God as the Possessor of heaven and earth the Owner of mansion in heaven became very useful to me several years ago when my father in the Lord, myself and four other people went to Tulsa Oklahoma for the first time.
We went to attend a conference in 1979 Kenneth Haggins camp meeting, we didn’t book any accommodation.
We didn’t hear about the conference until very late and we wanted to go.
And people say how can you go to America you didn’t even have reservation?
And something within me said ‘if God has gone to prepare me mansion in heaven surely he will provide me with accommodation when I get to America”.
We got to America; somebody meet us at the airport. We began to phone all the hotels in Tulsa, beginning from Hotels that were about an hour distant or more from the program, and everyone were fully booked.
All of a sudden it occurred to me; why are you phoning hotels that where more than one hour away we don’t have means of transportation.
So I said to the brother (I believe he will be listening to me on the internet right now) I said, look for the nearest hotel to the venue and phone them, tell them that we are missionary from Africa and we need a room.
He picked the phone, checked from the phonebook and found the nearest hotel and called them.
And that one said; who do you say you are?
He said we are missionary from Africa, we need a room.
He said come over I will give you a room.
I said tell him, we need more than one room, can we have two rooms?
He said where did you say you come from?
We said we are missionaries from Africa.
He said, I will give you two rooms.
So we got to the hotel, now my father in the Lord was with me and I was wondering how many people are we going to put in the same room with this old man!.
So I said are you really sure you can’t give us three rooms?
He looked up at me and said where did you say you came from?
I said from Africa.
He said I will give you three rooms.
My Father is the Possessor of heaven and earth.
That is why I decree to somebody here today, all your needs shall be met in Jesus name.
And then you need to know God the Son.
There are many things you need to know about God the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, the great Physician, the One who has come to set the captives free.
The One who came to destroy the works of the devil and so on.
But like I said time is not in my favor. But if you asked anybody who knows anything about Jesus Christ at all, to tell you one thing that is so crucial about the Lord Jesus Christ, he will call him the Savior Matthew 1 v 21.
Thank you father, no matter how short the time, God still have a word for somebody.
God says there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you, cling unto me and you will not sink.
The Lord has a word for one young girl, one young boy; he said I am the God of David; I am the God of Esther, what I have done for David I will do for you, what I have for Esther I will do for you.
The Lord says; I am raising a new generation of Josephs, He said if you are interested I will include you.
Matthew 1 v 21, you shall call His name Jesus for He shall save His people.
Luke 19v1-10 He ended up his conversation in the house of Zacheaus by saying for the Son of man has come to seek and save the lost.
In 1 John 1 v 7 the Bible made it clear that the blood of Jesus cleanses from all sins.
In Act 4 V 12 the Bible says ‘for there is no other name given among men where we might be save other than the name of Jesus’.
Several years ago, I went to another nation in Africa and my host and I we were just having a discussion and he was talking about a certain minister in government, who was a very terrible man.
He said that the man was so terrible only God can tell how many people the man had killed.
The man was so terrible that they gave him the name “Cobra”.
When I heard that, suddenly I heard the Holy Spirit ministering to me and said, you must go and preach to him, so I turned to my neighbor and said ‘I need to go and preach to the ‘cobra’.
He looked at me and said maybe you don’t understand what I am saying.
I said If he is as bad as you say he is, then he needs salvation.
And there is somebody that I know Who can save him,
His name is Jesus.
To cut a long story short, my host finally said alright, I will take you to his house but I won’t go in with you.
I will stay in the car and if I wait for one hour and you don’t come out, I will go.
I said that is good enough for me, after all if after one hour I don’t come out, you are free to go.
If they asked you from Nigeria what happened, just say I didn’t arrive.
I said phone him in advance, don’t tell him a pastor is coming, tell him a prophet (because if you say pastor, he won’t pay much attention)
Tell him a prophet is coming from Nigeria and he has a message for him.
I got there, I entered and met the Cobra;
I said “sir, I have a message for you from the Lord”.
He said “what is the message?”
I said “your days are numbered; your day of judgment is at hand. Your cup is about to overflow, but the Lord has sent me to tell you that in spite of all the evils you have done he still loved you”.
Less than fifteen minutes after I have started speaking the Cobra was on his knees asking:
“What can I do to be saved?”
I went in because I know the Savior.
And I’m believing God for all the Cobras who are listening to me all over the world right now, it doesn’t matter how evil you have been, there is someone called the Savior, He loves you still, if you give your life to Him tonight, He will save your soul and His blood will wipe away all your sins and He will give you a new beginning.
Because the word of God says if any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things have passed away behold all things are become new.
And then you need to know God the Holy Spirit.
There are many things to know about the Holy Spirit; He is the source of power, Act 1 v 8
You shall receive power after the Holy Spirit is come upon you.
He is a wonderful teacher John 14 v 26, the Lord Jesus Christ said He will teach you all things.
He is a Revealer of the future, John 15 v 13 tells us he will show you things to come.
But the greatest thing you will know about the Holy Spirit is that He is the Comforter John 14 v 26
The Bible calls Him the Comforter.
When you know the Comforter it becomes easy for you to comfort others and yourself according to 2 Corinthians 1 v 3-4
I’m telling you brethren, the time you need to know God the Holy Spirit most is when you are in sorrow.
Because many at times when we get into thought situations, when we encounter tragedies there is very little anybody can do to help us.
They can say sorry, they can say, just take heart. It takes the Holy Spirit to really bring comfort to you and after He has comforted you, you can use the comfort wherewith He has comforted you to comfort others.
You cannot be of much use to somebody who is in sorrow if you had never know sorrow yourself, there are many at times when you are in sorrow and there is nobody who could even help.
There are some of us who are in a position that when we are even in sorrow we are not allowed to show it, thank God for the Holy Spirit.
I remembered one occasion when I went to visit a family who had just suffered a great loss and I was moved to tears when I consider the sorrow they were going through.
Some people were saying you are the General Overseer, you are not supposed to cry. You came here to comfort others; you are not supposed to cry.
I said leave me alone, Jesus cried. And if Jesus can cry I’m free to cry also.
And I will tell you a story because many at times when some members of the congregation had suffered a loss because we put on a bold face as General Overseer or pastor, they may not know we feel the pain we suffer with them.
There was this young man, some of you have heard about him before, I call him Brother Moses, he was my student at the University of Lagos, when I was a lecturer there.
And he was an incurable soul winner that endeared him to me, we became so intimate that he was like my first born.
Then all of a sudden he went on a youth service to the north and died there.
Now this boy was so close to God that within few days or month he spent there, all others corpers had fallen deeply in love with him.
So when he died all other corpers said no! we won’t take this one from the Lord so they began to pray, he died at 10am by 2pm he came back to life, he came back to life and told the brethren, he said the Lord Jesus said I should go back and tell you that your noise is disturbing Him, that you are praying the wrong kind of prayer, you shouldn’t be praying for Moses to come from glory and join you here, you should be praying that you too will finish up in glory.
He delivered the message laid back on the bed and went back to heaven.
They came and they told me; I only met him in the university. I don’t know his mother, I don’t know his father, I don’t know his house but for days I was weeping.
Oh when I come before the congregation; I will say praised the Lord, halleluiah! The Lord is good.
But the moment the service is over and I am alone I go back into crying and weeping.
The third day God spoke to me and say “son why are you crying?”
I said, Daddy you know all things, you know why I am crying, I am crying because Mosses died.
God said no! You are not crying because Mosses died, you are crying because he left you behind.
I said that is true. The Lord said to me, son when you travel abroad to a place you have never been before, as you cross the gate border into the new place and you see somebody you had known before, there to welcome you. He said how do you feel? I said I feel so happy.
He said when you get to heaven, Jesus will be there to receive all of you but Moses will be there specially to receive you, that brought comfort to me like nobody else.
Let me tell you brethren, the Comforter explained to me that those who died, your relatives, your friends, at time your children that have died, they have not gone to your past, they have gone into your future.
If they died in the Lord, they are waiting for you at the gate of heavens. All you should do is to pray that you too will finish well, so that you will be able to see them again. You need to know the Comforter, God the Holy Spirit.
Now you cannot know God the Father, know God the Son, know God the Holy Spirit and want to continue in sin, it is not possible, because all of them are holy.
God the Father is called the Holy One of Israel, the angel told Mary that the Holy One who will be born through her shall be the Son of the Most High God.
The Holy Spirit Himself carries the word holy wherever he goes.
No one can do exploit without knowing God. No one can know God and wants to continue in sin. That is why if you are here tonight and you have not given your life to Jesus Christ, before anything else, you need to come to Jesus and let His blood wash away your sins and give you a brand new beginning.
That is why if you are here tonight and you claimed that you are born again and you are still living in sin; you are deceiving yourself because nobody can really be in Christ and continue in sin.
So if you are still living in sin, come back to Jesus and come and get the genuine salvation.
And I want those of you who already know God to know this thing; the Apostle Paul was already an apostle when he said, “that I may know Him”, no matter how much you know of Him, there is still a lot to know.
We will pray about that later but if you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, if you want His blood to wash away your sins, come forward now.
Come to the savior; if he can save the Cobra, he can save you too.
No matter how bad your past can be, he will give you a brand new beginning.
There is power mighty in His blood, that blood is so powerful; it can wash away all your sins and give you a brand new beginning.
Those of you in front begin to pray now, ask the Lord to have mercy on you, ask Him to save your soul, ask Him to wash you clean, ask Him to give you a brand new beginning.
And those of you that are coming, you begin to pray also as you are coming, calling on the Almighty Savior, to save your soul, to be merciful unto you, to cleanse you in His blood.
The rest of us let us stretch our hands towards these people that the Savior who saved us will save them too.
As He as kept us in his love, He will keep them in His love also. That they will have brand new beginning, from now on their lives will be different.
And they will become servant of the Most High God, children of the Almighty God….
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Savior we want to bless your holy name, we know there is no one that you cannot save; all we have to do is to surrender to you.
This your children has come tonight to surrender their lives to you, please receive them in Jesus name, have mercy on them in Jesus name, let your blood wash away their sins in Jesus name, today as you save their souls write their names in the book of life in Jesus name.
And Lord I’m not praying only for those who are here, I’m praying for those who are listening on radio, by television, on the Internet throughout the whole world. As many of them as have decided to surrender to you tonight, father save their souls in Jesus name. And beginning from this moment on ward, the grace to serve you whole heartedly, release unto them in Jesus name.
I’m also praying that from this moment onward because you have save their souls anytime they call on you answer by fire in Jesus name and let them serve you till the very end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
So those of you who have come forward let he hear you shout Halleluiah!
I’m rejoicing with you tonight because by the special grace of God, as from now on I will be praying for you and you will be receiving miracles, even miracle you didn’t ask for then you will know that somebody is praying for you somewhere.
So I’m going to need your name, I’m going to need your address, I’m going to need your prayer request.
1. Praise Him for making sure you are here tonight to witness what you have witnessed, to hear what you have heard.
2. Father, let me know you more.
3. Great Physician; please reveal yourself to me and use me to heal millions.
4. Great Provider; please reveal yourself to me and use me to help the needy.
5. Great Prince of peace; please reveal yourself to me and use me to bring peace to many lives.
6. Great Deliverer; please reveal yourself to me and use me to set captives free.
7. Great Savior; please reveal yourself to me and use me to win millions of souls.
8. Jehovah El-shaddai; please reveal yourself to me and use me to do exploit all over the world.
9. Almighty God, please perform wonders for me and through me so that I will become a beautiful wonder to the world.
10. Your own private requests.
.. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
The Almighty God will grant your request, beginning from now, you will know God more, you will know the Great Physician, and He will use you to heal millions.
You will know the Great Deliverer and He will use you to set the captives free.
You will know the Great Prince of peace and He will use you to bring peace to many homes.
You will know the Great Savior and He will use you to win millions into His kingdom.
You will know the Almighty God and He use you to do exploit for Him.
Beginning from now, your problems are over.
You will become a blessings to your generation God will perform wonders for you, He will perform wonders through you, you will become a beautiful wonder to the whole world so shall it be,
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout halleluiah!

Prayer for those born in November
My Father and my God I want to commit your children born in the month of November into your hands, November is the eleventh month of the year; eleven is ten plus one, and so eleven is double grace plus extra.
For all these children; give them extra blessings, extra joy, extra testimonies, extra breakthroughs, in all areas of their lives, let their joy overflow and let their new year be extremely successful and let them serve you like never before.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
November children congratulation, God bless you.
This is the last Holy Ghost service of this year; that means there will be no Holy Ghost service the first Friday of next month, the reason being that next month is Congress time.
The congress this year will be from December 9th to -14th 2013 and the theme of the Congress is The OVERFLOW.
David said, Thou anointed my head with oil, my cup runs over.
Some people manage to survive, but some people leave in the overflow.
Physically; they overflow with health,
Materially; they overflow with blessings,
Spiritually; they overflow with anointing.
Just a little over a month from now, there will be someone here listening to me who will begin to overflow in every areas of life.
Do everything within your power to tell your friends, relatives including your enemies to attend this year congress.
It is going to be one of a kind; there have never be a one like it before, there may never be another one like it in the future, so don’t miss this year holy Ghost Congress, the theme is OVERFLOW.
The song we will be singing as we advertise the congress is simply:
I HEAR A SOUND FORM HEAVEN 2CE
MY BLESSINGS SHALL FLOW IN
I HEAR A SOUND FROM HEAVEN.
Genesis 1 V 1-3 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, and the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, let there be light; and there was light.
The first time there was a sound in heaven, the very first time in the history of man that God spoke; what He said was let there be light.
And there was light.
So tonight in the Name that is above every other name, I am echoing the voice of my Father, as I say to you, in every facet of your life there will be light.
That first sound from heaven; let there be light of course could mean several thing but the basic thing is darkness get out of the way.
In Mark 10 v 46-52 the Bibles tells us that there was this blind man who was born blind and he heard that Jesus was passing by and so he began to cry; Lord have mercy on me!
And there was a multitude and when there is a multitude, there are all manners of noises but this man wanted to hear just one voice, one noise from heaven, when he finally got to the presence of Jesus Christ and he heard that sweet voice;
What can I do for you?
So that I might receive my sight,
The voice came from heaven,
Receive your sight.
Let there be light and immediately there was light.
In all areas of your life where there have been darkness, they will light tonight.
Let there be light means darkness depart,
In Mark 5 v 1-15 we have heard of him again and again this mad man of Gadara who has six thousand demons.
Six thousand forces of darkness holding him captive.
But one day Jesus came on the scene and the mad man heard a voice from heaven saying to the demons go.
Forces of darkness depart and they all departed.
It doesn’t matter how many forces of darkness has been tormenting you, today they will hear a sound from heaven, they will lose you and let you go in Jesus name.
When that first sound came from heaven; a new day was born, because the Bible say in the beginning God created heaven and the earth the earth was without form and empty, there was darkness all over the place but the moment he spoke, the first day began.
Psalm 30 v 5 says weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.
The first sound you are going to hear from heaven today is that, you shall weep no more.
Thank you Father, the Lord say there is a student here tonight; He said the fire that the enemy started in your brain has been put out.
A new day, a new dawn, a new day of joy is dawning for someone here tonight.
I heard the testimony of one young man who wasn’t just born blind, he had no eye balls, where eyes were supposed to be were just empty sockets.
Then one great evangelist was holding a crusade that was to last a week.
And every night they took this boy there, the first night the man of God preached about the creative power of God, that God can create what was not there originally.
The faith of the boy jumped!
“That is what I need.”
But he left the crusade that night, he was still blind.
But when he woke up in the morning and he was washing his face; he discovered that the eyes where the socket used to be was very cold.
Incredibly cold because there was no blood flowing there, he felt some warmth there, he came to the crusade the second day
Nothing still happened other than that warmth.
But when he woke up the second day, he saw that something seems to be bulging where there is a socket.
The Third day he came to the crusade and suddenly he heard a voice from heaven that says you can open your eye now.
I am prophesying to someone here today, before Monday you will shout a big victory shout.
And then God spoke again in the same Genesis 1 v 4-5 He said and God saw the light and it was good and God divided the light from the darkness called the light day.
The darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
God spoke again, another sound from heaven, he said light you will be day, darkness you will be night and I separate the two of you.
Second voice, the second sound that came from heaven is that there will be a separation between light and darkness.
A separation between you and your enemies; a separation between you and those who want to destroy you.
In Exodus 12 v 21- 36 the night that God was going to visit Egypt to destroy all the first born, He put a separation between the children of Israel and the children of Egypt.
So if you read Psalm 68 v 1-3 the Bible says let God arise and let his enemies be scattered.
He said as wax melt before fire, let the enemies melt before the Almighty God; He said but let the righteous rejoice.
Every one of you truly serving the Living God, between now and tomorrow morning, a definite separation will come between you and your enemies.
Those of you who are a little older you will remember the testimony when we were still in the second auditorium which is now the children auditorium.
A woman came from the next town for the convention and after we finished one night, she wanted to go home quickly to go and get something, on the way she entered into a bus not knowing she was being kidnapped.
So they took her and one other brother far into the jungle.
And they were doing all manners of atrocities to those people that were In front of them.
But then … they already took this woman they were already shaving her hair off in preparative to whatever they wanted to do but all of a sudden behind her back, the brother they picked with her began to speak in tongue and as he began to speak in tongues trouble came in the camp of the enemies.
Who brought this one here?
Where did they get them?
And they told him they got them in front of the Camp,
“Ah you took the wrong people!
Get away from here and immediately they set them free.
In the name that is above every other name, those who want to destroy you will hear a sound from heaven and they will release you.
There were several other sounds but because we have another meeting after this one, we will go to Genesis 1 v 20-21
It reads and God said (that I heard another sound from heaven)
Let the waters bring forth abundantly, the moving creature that has life and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
One of the sounds that came was the beginning of human race.
At the beginning of creation was when God said; bring forth plentiful, increase tremendously.
In the Name that is above every other name, tonight, you will hear a sound from heaven and that sound is going to say increase abundantly.
In 1 King 17 v 8-16 the widow of Zarepath had only one meal left which she wanted to prepare for herself and her son to eat and die.
But then a prophet of God came and for the first time in her life, she had a word of prophesy, she had a sound from heaven, a sound that said;
No! your oil is not going to dry up, it is going to increase abundantly. You flower is not going to extinct, it is going to increase abundantly and the abundant increase began.
In 2 King 4 v 1-7 another widow had two sons, and a lot of debts and the creditors have come and said if you don’t pay by tomorrow we are going to sell your sons.
She ran to the man of God and from the mouth of the man of God came a sound from heaven.
The sound that says: the little that you have will increase abundantly and before the end of that day she had paid her debt and she had enough to live on for the rest of her life.
I represent the Most High God today; I stand on this holy altar to prophesy to someone in the Name that is above every other name, all that you owe shall be paid and you will never lack again.
When you are looking for an example of increasing abundantly you will find it in the life of the children of Israel.
Genesis 46 v 26-27 says the numbers of souls that Israel brought into Egypt including Joseph who was already there were seventy.
Seventy souls came into a town but by the time you read Exodus 12 v 37 when they were leaving Egypt the Bible says the men alone numbered six hundred thousands, not counting women or children.
They came in as seventy; they left more than six hundred thousand.
I am believing the Almighty God for someone here tonight; before this time next year, you will look at yourself and said I don’t understand; I was very small last year, I was very small last year but now I have increased tremendously.
I give all the glory to the Almighty God for his faithfulness, because many at times when we read some of these things in the Bible there is a tendency for us to believe that can only happen in the old days.
But The Redeemed Christian Church of God started with twelve people.
But as long ago as 1981 when by his grace I became The General Overseer, we had forty Churches; one headquarters, thirty nine parishes in all together.
The convention we had in 1980; the total number of people who attended the convention in 1980 was a little over six hundred people and we thought that was big.
Today by the grace of the Almighty God we are in one hundred and seventy four Nations of the world.
There is a God, a God who can speak from heaven and suddenly little will begin to increase abundantly.
That God of The Redeemed Christian of God will speak to you tonight. He will say to you; increase abundantly.
And then there was another sound from heaven, and I love this one, let me read it to you from Genesis 1v 28
He says that: And God blessed them.
You know it is impossible to bless someone with your mouth close.
When you want to bless you open your mouth, a sound came from heaven to Adam and Eve and God says I bless you.
There is someone here tonight, you will hear a sound from heaven saying, you are blessed.
In Genesis 27 v 26-27 Isaac blessed Jacob and if you read that passage alone, you will know the meaning of blessing.
I think I have explained the meaning of blessing before;
A blessing is a summon to all the forces in heaven, all the forces on earth, all the forces underneath the earth to come and help you succeed.
I was telling my children yesterday, there is no bigger prayer than God bless you.
If God bless you does not solve your problems, nothing can.
Because when God blesses you, all the angels will begin to help you, even demons will begin to fight demons to make sure they clear your way for you.
I say tonight to every one of you who happen to be my children, God bless you.
You see you will find an example in Genesis 48 V 8-20 when Joseph brought his two children to his father in Egypt for blessing, the young one is Ephraim the elder is Manasseh.
In fact their father Joseph positioned the two of them so that the right hand of his father can lie on Ephraim and the left hand on Manasseh.
But his father crossed his hand.
And Joseph said to Jacob (because by then Jacob couldn’t see),
sir, no, you are putting the right hand on the wrong head,
Jacob said I know what I’m doing.
He said the younger is going to be greater than the elder.
He blessed them with his hands crossed.
I have always told my children when they ask me what is the meaning of the crossed hand?.
And I say I don’t know all the full meanings, but when your father wants to bless the two of you, put your head where your father’s right hand is.
That right hand carries tremendous power.
Within a short period of time, the blessings of Ephraim were ten times that of Manasseh; the young one has been blessed ten times more.
Well am raising my right hand to all my children tonight and am saying God bless you.
I have told you the story of one of my children who came to help me when I was at the university of Ilorin.
He came to help me repair all the electrical installation in my apartment and when he was about to leave, I said how much am I going to pay?
He said “how can I work for you and you pay?
He said all I just want from you is that you pray for me.
I have no money to travel back; you can give me money to travel back and pray for me that is all I want.
I said there is no need to pray for you. You have done this for me?
The Bible says you honor a prophet, you get a prophet’s reward.
I said my son God bless you.
I gave him money for transport; he had no money for transport that was how poor he was.
When I saw him two weeks later he was riding his own brand new car.
How did it happen?
He came down from the vehicle that brought him to Lagos at Iddo Motor Park.
And as he was coming out he saw one of his classmates, someone they studied together in College of Tech at Yaba.
Long time no see, what are you doing now?
That one says I am working in Dordon barracks, and you?
I am practicing electrical engineering.
The one in Dordon barrack said see me tomorrow,
He saw him tomorrow and things changed.
The one who will help you to reach your goal you will meet you this month.
Daddy says that there is someone here tonight; He said if you command that mountain tonight, I will help you move it into the sea.
Daddy asked me to give you two minute to command any mountain that you want out of your way…
In Jesus mighty name it shall be so.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said I created you to be a blessing and regardless of your situation you will be a blessing.
In Genesis 1 v 28 God blessed them and said unto them be fruitful and multiply and replenished the earth.
Another sound from heaven says be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth.
You know in the songs 4v2 the Bible says clearly there shall be non-barren among the children of God.
When I got this revelation years ago, I told those who came to Shiloh hour that day, I said:
Lay your hand on your womb, command the womb and say womb you must obey God. It is a commandment from God that you are to be fruitful, and you must be fruitful.
But we are not just talking about the fruit of the womb again now, there are some brains that are not fruitful.
You know it takes one idea to make you a billionaire. And yet there are some brains that can go from one idea to another, idea keeps coming because they are fruitful.
Lay your hands on your head and say brain, hear the word of the Lord, be fruitful…
In Jesus mighty name.
In 2Kings 4v8-17 the Shunammite woman had everything except a child and she was hospitable, she was looking after Elisha the man of God, she even built a house for the man of God.
And then one day she had a sound from heaven, when the man of God said nine month from now you will have a son, she didn’t believe, but the sound didn’t come from man it came from heaven.
And a sound is coming to someone here tonight, physically you shall be fruitful, mentally you shall be fruitful, spiritually you shall be fruitful.
I have just returned from Britain and there was lot of testimonies, but I had one that made me dance.
One friend of mine a professor said sir,
You will remember that some time ago, I wanted to bring my secretary to you for prayers because she has been trusting God for the fruit of the womb but by the time I phone you, you were already on your way out.
But you said give her the phone let me pray for her and as I prayed over the phone, the Almighty God backed up the voice of His servant.
My friend said sir; she has given birth to triplet.
She heard a sound via the phone, now you are not hearing your own via the phone now you are hearing it direct;
You shall be fruitful, you shall multiply, you shall replenish the earth.
The same Genesis 1 v 28, He didn’t stop there, after He said God bless them, God said unto them be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over everything living thing hovering upon the earth.
Sounds from heaven say have dominion;
You know what that one means? Be in charge, take control.
In Exodus 12 v 30-32 we hear Pharaoh saying to Moses bless me also.
The one who used to control Moses came to him to beg for help.
In the Name that is above every other name, from tonight you will begin to control your controllers.
Each time I read Joshua 10 v 12 -14 when Joshua was fighting and the sun was about to set and he said I have not finished my assignment, if darkness falls my enemies will escape.
He said, sun stand where you are!
Moon stay where you are!
Nobody had ever done that before.
But God says have dominion, be in charge.
The problem with many of us is that instead of running from our enemy, we should be in charge.
David didn’t run from the lion; he said come Lion, I will beat you to death. Come Goliath I will cut off your head. Be in charge!
I was invited to come and preach in Denver Colorado in January of one year.
And if you know any Geography at all you will know that place can be very cold in January and I don’t like it cold.
God knows what He was doing when He made me a Nigerian.
I don’t like living in the cooler, some of you don’t mind living in Ice box, I prefer to have my weather like this.
“Daddy I have been invited should I go”? He said yes,
What are we going to do about the cold?
He said you go ahead I will go along with you.
Wherever you go as from now on, God will go with you.
From the day I arrived till the day I was about to leave people were wearing t-shirt because summer replaced winter.
Now the beauty of it was, my plane took off at 5pm, within two hours of my leaving, more than ten centimeter of snow fell because what God did was that He just suspended the snow until I got out of the way then He released it.
I prophesy to you today, whatever God has to suspend in other for you to reach your goal, shall be suspended tonight in Jesus name.
I want you to have some time to pray tonight, I want to leave Genesis, maybe one of this days, the Lord will allows to use SOUNDS FROM HEAVEN for Congress, so that we can spend a whole week to look at it.
I want you to look at 2King 7 v 1-11 you will hear Elisha saying to the people, he said within twenty four hours there will be abundance in Samaria.
At a time when things were so bad that women were eating their own children.
The man of God got up and said within twenty four hours there will be so much food nobody will want to buy.
Which caused an academician, the economic adviser of the king to say “how can that be?
Even if God opens the windows of heaven and begins to pour in food, how can that be?”
And the man of God said “you will see it only you won’t be part of it.
But the beauty of that story was that the Bible says there were four lepers outside the gate and they said to themselves why are we sitting down here until we die?
If we sit down here, hunger will kill us. There is no food in the city so don’t need to go into the city, let’s go to the camp of the enemies.
The worst they can do is kill us, after all if they kill us we will die quickly.
So they began towards the camp of the enemies. And as they were moving their legs were shuffling because they were lepers.
The Almighty God pick up the noise that there legs were making to heaven, amplified it and sends it to the camp of the enemy.
When the enemies heard the sound; they say they said ah!
A great army is coming and they fled, they left all their food, all their clothes, all their money and they ran.
God can speak, make a single statement in heaven; His children will hear one thing His enemies will hear another thing.
The children asked within twenty four hours your problems are over; the enemies heard within twenty four hours the attackers will come and overtake you.
One sound from heaven and immediately the siege was over.
Even if you don’t hear any other thing tonight, you are going to hear a sound that says the siege is over.
It could be a siege against your health; like in the case of the woman in Mark 5v 25-34 the woman with the issue of blood.
There was a siege against her health, the blood was dropping. A drop at a time continuously the enemy just decided that this woman was not going to get well, but the Almighty God lifted the siege.
Everyone here tonight, with any form of sickness, any form of disease, any form of pain, in the Name that is above every other name, the siege against your health is over.
It could be a siege against your finance’s like the same woman the Bible said she spent all she had on physician and instead of getting better she grew worse but in a single day the siege against her finances was lifted.
And I know what this can be; before I became born again I was a lecturer in the university, in those days lecturers were well paid and glory day will return.
So I had a car and I had a driver, I could afford a driver. But there was a siege against my money, I will pay the driver at the beginning of the month and by the fifteen of the month I will be borrowing money from him to buy petrol.
Then I met the Lord Jesus Christ and the siege was lifted.
Whatever is like siege that is draining your resources, that siege is ceased in your life today in Jesus name.
Maybe the siege is against your children, 2Kings 4v 1-7 the enemies was actually after the children of the widow, otherwise how could you come to a widow and say if you don’t pay our money within twenty for hours, we are going to sell your sons.
Why the sons?, the enemies knows that if he can deal with those boys then the family will have no future, no heritage, no legacy.
There might be one or two people here tonight, the enemy has decided to focus on your children, on your son or your daughter or your entire family, tonight the siege is lifted.
It could even be a siege against your destiny.
In Mark 5v 1-20 the mad man of Gadara, who would have thought that the plan of God for this man was to be an evangelist, the enemy knew that this man was going to be mightily use of God and decided that no, no!
Before he can become an evangelist let’s grab him. And to make sure that he will never become what God wants him to become, he didn’t send one demon, seven or ten, he sent six thousand.
But that man heard a sound from heaven and his destiny was full restored.
I know there are people here listening to me that you knew it deep within you, even when you were young that the plan of God for your life is for you to be great but now you look at yourself and you are growing old and there is no sign of greatness at all.
In fact you are merely surviving.
You will hear a sound from heaven from tonight, your destiny shall be restored.
Sound from heaven, children of God heard one thing, the enemy heard another.
Thank you my Father; it seems as if God is focusing on student because He is saying there is a student here tonight, He said one day you will be listed among the most brilliant people of the world.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said very soon you will compose your own song and the song will go something like this: Now the flood gates are open, I am more than a conqueror”
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said there are two words and the two words are sisters, they are relative. And He said the two will never occur in your life again, and the two words are failure and defeat.
Romans 6 v 23 the Bible says the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is life and is to be found in Jesus Christ.
If you are a child of the living God you will hear good news from heaven, but if you refuse to accept Him, you will also hear sound from heaven saying the wages of sin is death.
But tonight there is a sound from heaven coming to every sinner saying come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.
The Savior is still pleading saying there is an invitation, come and be safe from your sins.
Come let me wash away your sins, come let me give you a new beginning.
I know there are at least a few people here from the moment you step in something tells you “God is going to speak to me today.
I know I have to surrender to him tonight”.
Like the one who spoke before me said, he said the sound is not effective until you do something about it.
It is an invitation to you now, come and surrender your life to Jesus.
If you like accept the invitation, if you like ignore it, but if I were you, I will run forward now and give my life to Jesus Christ.
Come and cry unto Him and say Lord I have heard of your voice speaking of your love for me, and I want you Lord Almighty to draw me near, near your side so that I can wash in that precious blood, come quickly
As you come begin to pray, begin to cry unto Him and say Lord begin to have mercy on me, save my soul.
Lord have mercy, please be my Lord and savior.
Come this is your day of salvation, come and cry unto Him for mercy, for salvation, call on Him tonight.
Cleanse me with your blood; I will serve you for the rest of my life
Please the rest of us let us intercede for these people also that the savior who saved our souls will save their own souls also, that the Almighty God will be merciful unto them…
In Jesus name we have prayed.
In the mighty name of Jesus, I want to thank you for your word I want to thank you for this people who have come forward to surrender their live to you, you promise oh Lord, you will not cast out, please receive them in Jesus name, forgive them in Jesus name.
Cleanse them in your blood in Jesus name, save their souls, write their names in the book of life and from now on anytime they call on you please answer them by fire, from now on let them hear the sound of joy and let them serve you till the end please don’t let them backslide.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen
I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight, I’m rejoicing with you because by the grace of God, I will be praying for you and very soon you will be receiving miracles that will show you somebody somewhere is praying for you, that is why I will need your name, your address @ your prayer requests.
PRAYER POINTS: 1. Praise God 2. Father, please speak light to my life 3. Father, put a solid divider between me and forces of darkness forever. 4. Father, command abundance into my destiny 5. Father, please pronounce a special blessing on me and my family tonight. 6. Father, command an end to fruitlessness in my home 7. Father, put me in total control of all situations in my life. 8.

… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
The Almighty God will grant your request, the light of God will shine into your lives, God will put a major barrier between you and darkness, from His throne in heaven, He will pronounce His special blessings on you.
In your entire family there will be no more bareness, there will be no more fruitlessness.
You will no longer labor in vain; the Almighty God will command abundance into your life.
From now on you will be controlling your controllers.
Every siege against your health, against your finances, against your family, against your destiny are cancelled now, it shall be well with you, your blessings shall overflow, you will never know sorrow again.
So shall it be and you will serve the Lord.
