Power in Our Testimony

Power in Our Testimony

 

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives to the death.” Revelation 12:11

Words are spiritual containers. When they are spoken out of our mouths, they are seeds that are released to be planted somewhere in the earth. The words we speak are powerful. They can and will impact the lives of those who hear them. That is why God tells us that the words of our testimony coupled with the blood of Jesus will always cause us to win despite what the devil may try to bring against us.

Have you ever noticed how fast gossip or bad news travels? Although no good fruit can come out of them, they seem to travel at the speed of light, creating a path of damage and destruction.

But imagine if we took the time to tell others about the great things God has done for us. The power of our testimonies would cause those persons who hear it to have hope in their time of despair; comfort in their time of loneliness; faith in sickness; and joy in the midst of sorrow.

God has blessed us, so that we can be a blessing to others. Sharing the goodness and faithfulness of God through our testimonies can and will have a lasting effect on those who hear. Instead of feeling alone and desperate, our testimonies will let people know that God is forever with them and He is faithful to take care of them.

Prayer:

Dear Faithful Father, I want to be a blessing to others. Show me how I can use my testimony to give hope to those in need, and to magnify You in the earth today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

Averting Disqualification. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Point By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Averting Disqualification. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Point By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Memorise:
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
1 Corinthians 9:27

Read:
1 Corinthians 9:26-27

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Message

A grave peril of Christian leadership is that of disqualification. Every Christian leader must be obedient, prayerful, watchful, temperate and self-disciplined so that after acting as a herald who bids others into the Kingdom of God, he himself should not miss Heaven. As a leader, it is possible to be disqualified by God. In 1 Samuel 15:20-24, we see Saul being disqualified by God:

“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.”
1 Samuel 15:23

No person is indispensable. As a Christian leader, you should always be conscious of the fact that God has substitutes. I pray that you will not be rejected by God in Jesus’ Name. One factor that is responsible for disqualification is disobedience. Sacrifice is good, but obedience is better than sacrifice. In our service to God, we should always bear in mind that what He requires from us is total obedience. Haphazard obedience is worse than outright disobedience. If you want to serve God and not be disqualified, you must be ready to obey everything the Lord asks you to do. Obey all His commandments regardless of whether they are convenient or not. Another stumbling block that leads to disqualification is carelessness. Many Christians are careless. They compromise their stand, yet they do not want to be disqualified. A careless and irresponsible servant might end up becoming disqualified by the Lord. In order not to be disqualified, you should watch and pray (Matthew 24:42). A Christian leader should be watchful and careful of all little foxes that destroy the vine. These include anger, bitterness, jealousy, inordinate ambition, strife, gluttony, lust, dishonesty, malice, not studying and obeying the word of God, impatience, talkativeness, etc. To avoid being disqualified by the Lord, we should live holy and practice the principle of self-assessment. Assess yourself on a daily basis to confirm that you are still in the Lord. Assess the motive behind your service, the level of your zeal, the level of commitment and your relationship with fellow Christians who are also serving the Lord. Does your relationship enhance the commitment of others to the service of the Lord? If the answer to this question is no, change. Are you drawing people to Heaven or to Hell by your behaviour? How watchful and prayerful are you?

Prayer Point:
Father, grant me the grace to be watchful against disqualification, in Jesus’ Name.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

Satan! Know Your Real Enemy

Satan! Know Your Real Enemy

Never waste your time or energy fighting people.

You really have only one major enemy…..Satan! He simply walks around “as a roaring lion.

Jesus is The Lion Of Judah. Satan is no match for Him.

It is not Dangerous to have an enemy.

It is only Dangerous not to identify him.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
1 Peter 5:8

Be Thou Perfect. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Be Thou Perfect. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Memorise:
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Matthew 5:48

Read:
Genesis 17:1-8

1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.
2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,
4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.
7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

Message

It takes a loving father to give instructions and guidelines to his children. God demands absolute obedience to His instructions from all His children. There is always something to gain from God for obeying Him. This is because every instruction He gives has a promise attached to it.

“And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.”
Genesis 17:1-2

One thing God desires from all His children is perfection. To be perfect means a state of being in complete conformity to God’s word. It denotes a state of being faultless, blameless or spotless and a state of being excellent (Daniel 6:3). Some people argue against perfection; they say all men are sinners and would therefore sin daily. This is not scriptural. God’s standard for everyone who is born-again is perfection. His standard of holiness and perfection remains the same. It was not higher under the Abrahamic covenant than it is under the new covenant. If God could help Abraham to be perfect, could He not also help believers in Christ today to be the same? Are you a believer in Christ? Then ask for the grace to be perfect. Holiness is the nature of God according to 1 Peter 1:15-16. Holiness is His heartbeat, and His desire is that we should be like Him in holiness. There are many lessons to learn from the Bible reading for today on how to be perfect. The first step to perfection is willingness and obedience. You must be willing and obedient to the word of God (Isaiah 1:19). That others are not living holy does not mean that a state of perfection is unattainable. Secondly, you must walk before God (Genesis 17:1). Be in the place where God can direct you. Be mindful to study His word and obey it (Joshua1:8). In addition, you must fellowship with Him and abide in His presence always (Psalm 91:1-2).

Genuine repentance is an indispensable condition for perfection. Whoever wants to be perfect must first and foremost repent from sin and be saved (John 3:17). He or she must also live a holy life by abstaining from all appearance of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22). As you go into the day, you should seek for perfection in your walk with God and decide to obey God’s word absolutely. What God requires of you on a daily basis is perfect obedience to His will. You should therefore stand perfect and complete in all His will.

Action Point:
Decide to obey the word of God today.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

Divine Compensation. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Divine Compensation. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Memorize:
But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
1 Peter 5:10
Read:
Genesis 41:37-45
37 And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants.
38 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?
39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:
40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.
41 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.
42 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph’s hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;
43 And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.
44 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.
45 And Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.

Message

Nothing discourages and leads one to a state of despondency more than suffering. There is no glory in suffering, neither is there any glory in poverty, in sickness, affliction or trouble. There is a user of this devotional who is in trouble. I pray the Almighty God will defend you, fight your battles for you and grant you total victory and deliverance from all that trouble in Jesus’ Name. The Lord is the Friend that hears and defends when trouble comes. Psalm 20:1-2 says,

“The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee; Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;”
Compensation denotes settlement. It could mean a reward for obedience to biblical injunction. A good example of this is tithing (Malachi 3:8-12). Many people argue against tithing; this is outright ignorance. When you obey the biblical injunction of tithing, God will rebuke the devourer for your sake and compensate you with divine prosperity. The same applies to giving (Luke 6:38). Evangelism, follow up and discipleship are other biblical injunctions worth adhering to (John 15:16). Obedience to these biblical injunctions results in prompt answers to prayers.
Divine compensation could also mean reward for your abilities and input. Are you serving your family, church, organisation or nation faithfully? Does it seem as if no reward is forthcoming? The Lord will reward you. Divine compensation could come in terms of physical or spiritual reward. An example is David who served his father faithfully. He was neither recognised nor rewarded by his father. However, God compensated him at the appropriate time. He became the king of Israel. There is an appointed time for divine compensation. Yours is probably closer than you think. Don’t give up. There was a lady who suffered a number of miscarriages. Nevertheless, she kept on trusting in God. She prayed and refused to be deterred, neither did she lose her faith in God. At last, God intervened and she was rewarded with triplets. Divine compensation is what God alone gives. It is the best reward because while other rewards are ephemeral, divine compensation is permanent. Divine compensation as a reward from God could come in form of divine power, divine ideas, divine prosperity and divine connections. Ruth was divinely connected to Boaz while Esther was divinely connected to King Ahasuerus. Divine compensation is to be remembered at last. As Joseph was remembered at the appointed time, you also will be remembered at last.

Prayer Point:
Remember me for good oh Lord. Make me perfect; establish, strengthen and settle me.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

Commanded To Shine. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Commanded To Shine. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Memorise:
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16

Read:
Ephesians 5:8-14

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Message

Light and darkness are antithetical. While light is welcome by everyone, darkness is shunned and rejected. Light is an illuminating agent. It affects everything and without it, there will be no life. Light is mostly used when referring to goodness and godliness. 1 John 1:5 reveals to us that God is light. This means whoever is born of God must reflect the attributes of light. A keen study of light reveals many attributes which believers should endeavour to reflect. One of such attributes is the wave. Simply put, a wave is a disturbance. Whoever is born of God is light, and because light has the nature of a wave, his or her life must be a disturbance to the works of darkness everywhere. Acts 4:15-17 is a classical example of a situation where believers reflected this attribute of light. Are you born of God? Then your life should challenge both the works and the workers of darkness. Another attribute of light is force. Light as a force causes movement or change. Everyone that is born of God is expected to shine by provoking positive change. You should be able to cause positive change and movement to the glory of God. You are expected to be a strong force of progress in your home, family, community, society, place of work, church and nation.

There is no denying the fact that light is life. Light is life to both plants and animals. While animals rely on plants and (sometimes) other animals for existence, green plants turn carbon dioxide and water into food using energy obtained from the light radiating from the sun. This process is known in biology as photosynthesis. Every child of God should radiate light and life, because in Jesus is life which is the light of men. John 1:4 says:

“In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”

As a Christian, you have life, and this life is eternal. Moreover, this life is capable of making all impossibilities become possible. Going through Luke 10:19, we can deduce that light is power. Are you born of God? Rejoice! In you resides the power that upholds all things (Hebrews 1:3). You have been empowered by God to do the unimaginable for Him. I pray that no sickness, darkness or evil shall rule over you. Light reveals. Implicitly, light reveals specific information about a matter. The good news is that you should no longer operate in ignorance, because light exposes hidden things (Ephesians 5:13). Finally, light travels in a straight line. This denotes integrity, faithfulness and trustworthiness. If we operate as light, we will not be perverse or crooked in our ways.

Prayer Point:
Father, help me to always reflect all the attributes of light.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

Secrets Of Praise And Prayer. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Secrets Of Praise And Prayer. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Memorise:
I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
Psalm 18:3

Read:
2 Chronicles 20:8-24

8 And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying,
9 If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.
10 And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not;
11 Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit.
12 O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.
13 And all Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.
14 Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the LORD in the midst of the congregation;
15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
16 To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.
17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.
18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD.
19 And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high.
20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.
22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.
23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.
24 And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.

Message

Our God is a warrior and the Man of War. He is also a Deliverer, as our Bible reading today reveals. Our God never does things haphazardly. Whenever He fights, He wins. He delivers permanently and saves to the uttermost. He does not limit His actions to healing and deliverance alone; He also grants His own wholeness and carries them on the wings of grace. Our God has secrets. The greatest secret of God is praise. God dwells in the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3). Many battles are fought and won whenever we praise God. Intense praise will always result in freedom and progress. God made it clear in Isaiah 42:8 that He will not share His glory with anyone. When we give intense praises to God, His glory is manifested. King Solomon in 2 Chronicles 5:13 brought down the glory of God through intense praises. In 2 Chronicles 20:20-22, King Jehoshaphat obtained victory over his enemies through praise and worship. Are you facing a situation that can be described as dicey? If only you can praise God in the beauty of His holiness, He will fight your battles for you and grant you victory. Praises should come from a pure and holy heart. If you claim to praise or worship God while your heart is busy doing other things which do not bring glory to God, then your praise or worship is mere lip-service. True and acceptable worship must be connected to a heart that is committed to God.

Another secret of God is asking. God revealed this secret to Solomon in 2 Chronicles 7:14 where He said:

“If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

This was what Jehoshaphat keyed into in 2 Chronicles 20:9, and he got deliverance. Do you belong to Christ? Are you called by His Name? Humble yourself and pray. You should seek God and praise Him like never before. Tell God how things are with you; don’t pretend like some people do. Humble yourself like never before (James 4:6). Begin to give cheerfully. If you have started, give more cheerfully like never before (2 Corinthians 9:6-7). Trust man less and trust God more (Jeremiah 17:5-8). Walk more closely with God like never before (James 4:8). When you do all these, God promises to answer all your prayers. He also promises to forgive all your sins, heal your body and your land.

Action Point:
Spend quality time in praise and worship today and tell God how things really are with you.

 

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

Fellowship Of Believers. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboy. Daddy G O

Fellowship Of Believers. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboy. Daddy G O

Memorise:
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2 Corinthians 6:14

Read:
Acts 2:46-47

46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

Message

One of the reasons for the creation of man is fellowship. He was created to have fellowship with God and with others (Genesis 1:26). This truth reflects in the way man associates in groups, societies, fraternities and clubs. The quest for fellowship is a serious need which has taken some into indecent relationships with fellow men, beasts, demons and inanimate objects. There are men who cohabit with demons. Some practice homosexuality, bestiality and other sexual perversions. There are those who worship idols and are in covenants with them. Some join secret societies while some others are into occultism. As Christians, the Bible enjoins us not to fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness in Ephesians 5:11:

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

It is our responsibility as Christians to rebuke the works of darkness. Our fellowship should be with God and fellow believers. We should first and foremost fellowship with the Trinity (1 John 1:3). Since fellowship denotes sharing, we should be born-again to be in communion with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is also scriptural for believers to fellowship with fellow believers. To this end, we should not shun the gathering of believers such as Sunday School, Sunday worship, House Fellowship meetings and Bible Study meetings. We should also be actively involved in our parish departmental meetings and other productive gatherings of believers. Wherever believers gather to fellowship, the glory of the Lord should be seen. Believers should therefore fellowship to pray. While fellowshipping in prayer, we should fellowship in one accord just as the New Testament Christians did (Acts 2:1). We should learn to worship God together in the same spirit of holiness and truth (John 4:24). We should fellowship to thank God, pray for ourselves, intercede for the body of Christ and the government of the country where we live. Brethren should live together in love. This is the key that binds fellowship. It is inappropriate for believers to bicker, fight, gossip or keep malice. We should allow our fellowship to be guided by the Holy Spirit. There are brethren in fellowship who have challenges. Some are sick, some are lonely, some are poor, unemployed or not gainfully employed. Some have marital challenges, emotional and psychological problems while some are battling with spiritual challenges. None of such people should be neglected. We should fellowship together in love and demonstrate that we care.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye, June 2014 Holy Ghost Service, HELP IS ON THE WAY

HELP IS ON THE WAY

Why don’t you lift up your hands and bless the name of the Lord. Lift Him higher, give Him glory, give Him honor, given Him adoration, bless His holy name, praise the King of kings, praise the Lord of lords, Bless His holy name, thank Him for all that He has done for you.

Magnify His holy name, praise Him. Oh Lord God Almighty, we bless your name, we want to give you glory, we want to give your honor, we want to give you adoration because you are the one worthy to be praised.

Oh yes Lord, there is no one like You, we lift your name higher oh Lord, because You are Higher than the highest, You are Greater than the greatest, You are Better than the best.

Thank you, Savior, halleluiah Father, thank you Jesus… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen

Let somebody shout hallelujah!

Shake hands with one or two people and prophecy to them, God will send help to you.

PRAYER FOR THOSE BORN IN JUNE

Father, Almighty, I want to commit all your children born in the month of June into your hands; June is the sixth month of the year and six is five plus one, so June is the month of more than grace.

In the lives of all these children; something over and above grace release unto them; abundant grace, abundant joy, abundant victory, something more than enough, release unto them in Jesus name.

And this month in particular like never before help each and every one of them till the end. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

In July by the special grace of God, we will be having disciple conventions, all those who have attended school of disciples and those who are currently attending school of disciples and those who will yet attend the school of disciples you will be having your convention next month and the theme is THE BLESSED OF THE LORD. It is going to be a very glorious time in Jesus name.

This month as you have been told by your pastors we have JUNE 14th as a very, very special day:

The Global Evangelism Day, when we will all go out and go and witness one on one, to our neighbors throughout the world.

This is going to happen throughout the entire globe; THE GLOBAL DAY OF ENVANGELISM, get ready to participate.

What a wonderful night.

I’m sure you are ready and thoroughly blessed. My boys are getting better day by day.

I give glory to God, at the rate at which they are going, they will finish preaching, I will just come and say God bless you and we will go home.

If we go home now we are already blessed.

This is very good because since the Holy Ghost Service started in 1986, I have missed only one night.

I couldn’t miss any night because I don’t want to joke with the Holy Ghost Night, but with the way things are going now, I will be able to travel a little more knowing full well that you are in good hands; do I hear amen to that?

The amen is low, you don’t know what is coming, some years ago I told them at the Headquarters, I said a time is coming that when you see me once a month you will rejoice, they laughed.

They said “where is he going”?, because at a time when I was making the announcement I am in the Church several months uninterrupted.

Today when they see me once a month, they rejoice because God has enlarged our coasts and we have not seen anything yet.

The coasts will keep on enlarging and the rest of the world will appeal to you to share what you have.

So get ready great days are ahead!

Psalm 121 v 1-2 I will lift up my eyes onto the hill, from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

Like I told those of you who were at the Holy communion service last night, I received the theme for each Holy Ghost Night directly from heaven; so when last month when God told me that the theme for June is HELP IS ON THE WAY, I danced.

Because in MAY I looked at the various situations, particularly in the country and I was almost dismayed.

I know that at the beginning of the year when the Lord asked us to fast for a hundred days and that the destiny of this Nation will be determined this year; not next year.

How many of you remember the prophecy?

I was a bit concerned, particularly when He said fast for a hundred days, the last time we fast for a hundred days was eighteen years ago.

Even I didn’t know that things will get this bad.

So by May, I was beginning to say God, what is going on?

It was then the Theme came: HELP IS ON THE WAY.

Look at your fellow square in the face and say help is on the way. I will lift up my eyes unto the hills, from whence comes my help.

The first question there is, from whence? Help is on the way; where is this help coming from?

Surely not from man! Psalm 60 v 11 says vain is the help of man, if you are expecting help from man, it doesn’t matter who you are wasting your time.

Why?

James 4 v 14 says man is here today and he is gone tomorrow, it says the life of a man is like a vapor. So even if the man wants to help you, what if he dies? Vain is the help of a man.

Surely you are not expecting help from money, Proverbs 23 v5 tells us that money can develop wings and fly away.

From where is my help coming?

Malachi 3 v 6 says I am the Lord, I change not, my help is coming from the Lord, who does not change, the One who is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Help is on the way; there is help coming for the sick.

Why?

Exodus 15 v 26 says it is the Lord that heals thee, help is coming for the sick because the great physician is on the way.

In Matthew 8 v 1 -3 that Leper who was incurable thought he was going to die a leper, but help came across his way and in a single day the incurable became cured.

And when help is going to come to the sick, it will come unexpectedly that is why before I finish preaching tonight, you can receive your healing today in Jesus name.

In Mark 10 v 46-52 Bartimeaus didn’t know when he woke up that morning, he didn’t know that his darkness was going to end.

He went about his usual business ‘begging’ when all of a sudden he heard that Jesus was passing by, he knew at long last help has come.

And I’m believing God for someone here tonight before this night is over the help you have been expecting will come.

Help comes to the sick unexpectedly.

You remember the testimony of one of my sons who had cancer, so advance that they said there was nothing anybody could do for him and the hospital where they took him, they had a room for those who are absolutely hopeless.

So they put him in a room expecting him to die in a couple of days, and I was visiting that town that day. I went there to pray for my son, there were several others in the room; they said there was no hope for them.

I prayed for my son alone, because we are talking of abroad; abroad if you pray for somebody without the fellow asking you to pray for him, he could sue you for harassment.

Call it spiritual harassment, so I pray for my son alone and I left.

That was Saturday, the following Wednesday, they discharged everybody in the room.

Everybody! They were not expecting death, but healing came.

There is somebody here tonight too, maybe you have even lost your hope of being healed, receive your healing now in Jesus name.

Help is on the way for the barren.

Why?

Because according to John 15 v 1-5 Jesus Christ is the fruitful vine and if you, abide in him, you will become fruitful also.

And when help wants to come for the barren, it comes unexpectedly.

In Genesis 18 v 1-14 Abraham and Sarah didn’t know that after they had waited more than twenty five years that help will come. They were in front of their tent when help came.

Now, you have come all the way to this holy mountain before you go home help will come your way.

And those of you who are watching all over the world; because I know you are listening in Australia, Papua New Guinea, all over the world. You might not be able to come here, but tonight help will locate you.

They have mocked Anna, they have tormented her, she was even misunderstood when she was praying and yet help came her way, today help is going to come your way.

But to the barren in particular, I have a word of advice because it has come to my notice that one or two of you are beginning to say maybe God is too late and you are trying to seek help from other sources other than Jesus Christ.

I beg you, stop it.

And I will give you two stories why you must wait for the Lord and the Lord alone!

From 1979 to 1980, there was a sister in the Church, trusting God for the fruit of the womb and we were all praying for her.

We were so few then; everybody knew everybody else. And we were interceding for her.

My wife and I took it upon ourselves specially to pray for her, but you see God has his time table.

Then we moved from Lagos to Ilorin before God brought us back by force to Lagos.

Because when we were leaving Lagos, we never thought we will come back to Lagos.

By the time we returned, we saw our sister, she said “look at me, I am pregnant”.

Ah! We were happy and we were dancing, until she told us, “you see somebody advised me to try somewhere else. And what happened?”

“Those people also used the bible, they did this, they did that, they asked me to do this” Are you a child of God you?

You mean you did that? She said, but look at the result am pregnant. That was 1981, the pregnancy is yet to be delivered. Be careful!

I tell you a second story, I won’t mention names, because the fellow concerned might be here, and there is no way anybody will know you are the one.

She wanted a child desperately, thought that Jesus was too slow, so she tried another method, this time the baby came and it was a boy, she said

“You see, sit down there those of you praying, praying, you don’t want to move around and see”.

So she moved around and got a boy. And when the boy I think was about I think about six years old.

One day the boy went into her room, brought out his manhood and said to mama, let us have sex.

The mother said “what did you say?”

The boy said “I say I want to have sex with you” ah, what did you say?, where did you get that from?

And they took the boy to a deliverance minister.

The boy said to the deliverance minister, he said “don’t waste your time, I am not possessed, I am demon incarnated”

Help is on the way!

Will you wait for the help of the Almighty?

In the name of the Lord Almighty, I am decreeing that that help will arrive today.

Help is coming for the failure, why?

Because the Strengthener is coming. Philippians 4 v 13 He said I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

Have you failed again and again, the strengthener is coming, the one who can make you succeed is coming.

One of my boys took for his text John 5 v 2-9 it tells us the story of a man who have been sick for thirty eight years and he had tried again and again to be the first to get into the pool of water troubled by the angel.

For thirty eight years he failed until help came his way, the day the help came, the one who was a failure became a success.

Another one spoke about Luke 5 v 1-7 about Peter that fished all night and failed.

Peter did not fail because he wasn’t diligent, he didn’t fail because he wasn’t hardworking, he didn’t fail because he wasn’t skillful, he failed because he failed.

But when help came, he succeeded.

Again, I am joining all the prophets who have gone before me tonight, to prophesy to those of you who have failed; help is on the way.

And in the Name that is above any other name you will not fail again.

I think I have shared the testimony, particularly with my children not too long ago I think in Jos.

Just to show you that people don’t fail just because they are not hard working, people don’t fail just because they are not brilliant, you can be a brilliant student and still fail.

But in the name that is above every other names, all of you my student you won’t fail again.

I told them the story; when we talked about mathematics, it is either you know the subject or you don’t know it, there is no guess work.

Two plus two is four periods.

And if I ask you what is the square root of two?

You are going to say what did you say sir?

It is either you know it or you don’t.

And there was this subject, I knew this particular subject very well, I was teaching my classmates.

When I was in the university and then it was examination time, that particular subject, they asked us to answer five questions out of eight.

I read question number one, blank. Question number two, I couldn’t make head and tail out of it. Number three, I didn’t understand.

Number four I couldn’t get a clue, by now I began to sweat. Five, six, seven, eight, I couldn’t see anyone that I could answer.

I said well if I miss it this time round, I better go, after all, they will allow you to come back and have re-seat if it is only one subject.

I know God as always, loved me; I wasn’t born again then, but I could feel something saying to me, sat down.

And I sat down, for fifteen minute I just sat down, I couldn’t do anything, I couldn’t remember anything, then I read the first question again; ah, I know this one, this is so and so formula, I read the second one, I know this, I read the third, the fourth, the fifth, the sixth, the seventh, the eighth.

In the time left, I answered all the eight questions and because I was still a little bit of a rascal, I wrote at the top of the answer sheet to my lecturer, mark any five.

I am saying to all my students here, you will never fail again. Why? Help is on the way.

Help is coming for the captive;

Why?

Because John 8 v 36 says the great deliverer is coming, whosoever the son shall set free, shall be free indeed.

Thank you Father, the Lord says there is someone here tonight; He said every night you have had a fight in your dream, now he asked me to tell you, that end tonight.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight; the Lord says just as I did for Peter, I will show you the spot of your breakthrough.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight; He says stop panicking all will end well.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said your families have been going through a series of sorrows, he asked me to assure you no more sorrows.

Mark 5 v 1 -15 the mad man of Gadara was not just bound, he was securely bound.

He wasn’t bound by one demon, he wasn’t bound by a two or three, he was bound by a legion.

Bible scholar said a legion means at least six thousand.

When six thousand demons are holding one man captive you will know that man is captive.

But he didn’t know help is on the way when he woke up that morning, but when the great deliverer came, just one word from him and he was set free.

In the Name that is above every other name, every demons operating in your life will let you go tonight in Jesus name.

I can tell you several stories on that, maybe this one will help someone. You probably have heard it before, some of you.

There was this lady who was married; she didn’t know the mother in law was an enemy, she saw the mother in law coming from the market. Ran to meet her, “mama you are welcome!” and mama took a loaf of bread, gave it to her and said “eat that and use it to block your womb”, the poor girl said “what kind of joke is that”?

All the same she took the loaf of bread like to say stupidly and eat the bread. And from that day she stops menstruating, years passed, she couldn’t have a single child, but then she heard that we are coming to hold a crusade in Oyo, this is a true story not they said and she said if they are coming, I am going to prepare myself for the arrival so she decided to fast and to pray.

And the afternoon before our arrival, she was fasting and was praying and she fell asleep and had a dream.

She saw men wearing white like doctors, came into the room where she lies and open up her womb and they began to draw a rope, at the end of the rope they saw something black like a loaf of bread.

They put it in a bowl, sewed her back and walked out.

When she woke up, I mean of course frightening and shaking, she saw that the bed is soaked and wet with blood; for the first time in a long time she saw that she has started menstruating.

It wasn’t long after that the babies begin to come.

It doesn’t matter how securely the enemies have banded you, you are getting loose tonight in Jesus name.

I will lift up my eyes to the hills from where comes my help, my help comes from the Lord who made heaven and the earth.

Why am I sure that help is coming for the sick, coming for the failure, coming for the bounded, because the Helper is the one who make the heaven and the earth, he is the one who made you.

And as I have always said, because you, he has your spare parts.

So if there is something wrong that the doctor said there is nothing they can do about it, why don’t we wait for the help of the helpless the one who made you and see what he will do.

The Bible tells us that he made all things, including the wicked for the day of evil.

Proverb 15 v 4 he said the Lord made all things, including the wicked for the days of evil, so they that have been troubling you, there is own day of recompense have come tonight in Jesus name.

He made you so if there is any part of your body that is not functioning properly, let’s refer the matter to the great physician.

I have told you before when a doctor cannot handle your case, he will refer you to a specialist.

When the specialist cannot handle your case he refers you to somebody superior, but as far Jesus is concerned, He never refers a case, when you come to Him you have come to the last bus-stop.

And you are here in his presence tonight and He will solve your problems in Jesus name.

He made angels, He made demons and they all bow to Him, according to Philippians 2 v 9-11 tells us that He has a Name that is above every other name.

So we know that at the mention of the Name of Jesus all knees will bow.

Including all those demons that are binding you, when he commands them they must obey.

He made all things that mean he made the wind and the sea.

In Mark 4 v 35-41 the Bible tells us that when he was sleeping in a boat there was a storm, and the disciples felt they were about to drown, you remember what he did?

He spoke a word and suddenly the storm ceased. And the people came to Him and say what manner of man is this?

That even the wind and the sea obey Him!

There are many of us who are going through one form of a storm or the other, and it is for those of us that he is sending a message; HELP IS ON THE WAY!

So that whatever storm might be troubling you right now, in the Name that is above every other name that the storm will end tonight.

I told you I was a bit troubled in the month of May.

Then He told me not to worry son, the wind and the sea still obey me. It doesn’t matter the storm, they will still obey.

I’m sure you remember the story I told you of my first cruise? Because He reminded me of that story in the last month.

One of the children said daddy you need to rest, I said yes of course I will love to rest.

He said I know the best thing; if you want to rest go on a cruise.

If you go on a cruise nobody can come and trouble you there, they can’t swim the ocean to come and join you.

I said that is a good idea, I have never been on a cruise before and I am telling you if you want an enjoyable holiday go on a cruise, no holiday is better than that of a cruise, those people seems to rejoice at overfeeding you.

So I was there having a nice time; eat in the morning, eat in the afternoon, eat in the evening, they even have buffet at midnight.

And since I have been on holiday, no fasting, no digging deeper, no faith clinic, I was just enjoying myself.

Then suddenly came; the boat we were in was a very huge boat, I mean several stories high, bigger than Sheraton hotel, but when the storm came, the boat became like a toy.

The wave will rise several stories high and then dropped us.

Then we will run and cutleries and cups were flying like bullets across the place. Things got so bad the captain called all of us together and said

“Ladies and gentlemen, don’t worry, storms are in twelve categories; category one is the smallest, category twelve is the worst he said don’t worry we are only on category ten”.

He said go to your room and stay there”.

I said “category ten?” I said “God, what am I doing here?”

Because in my village the biggest river you can jump over it and now I am in the midst of a ocean in category ten storm.

Everyone of you tonight in a storm, the Almighty God will speak to your storm in Jesus name.

I said “Lord, what do I do now?”

He will speak to you too.

He said “son, when I was here on earth and there was a storm, what did I do?”

I said “the Bible says you were sleeping”.

He said “you go and sleep”.

I jumped on my bed within two minutes I was fast asleep.

Each time I tell the story people have asked me how could you sleep in that situation?

What else can I do? Jump into the ocean?

I can’t swim. Even if I can swim, swim in an ocean?

But I had the advantage of hearing from the Lord, by the time I woke up everything was calm, We were already at port.

In the mighty name of Jesus before you wake up tomorrow, all your storms will be gone in Jesus name.

Why?

He made the wind, He made the sea, the wind and the sea obeyed him.

And then all the fullness of the earth belongs to Him.

I like what one of my boys said just now, he said if the chairman of the local council is the one helping you; the help he can render is limited to the council.

If the governor is the one helping you, the help is limited to the state.

If the president is the one helping you, the help is limited to his country. But if the one helping you is the one who made heaven and earth, then the help is unlimited.

It means wherever you go you will get help. That is why I am getting prophesying to someone here today; from the east you will get help, from the west you will get help.

From the north, you will get help; from the south you will get help. From all over the world you will get help.

Thank you Father, the Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said your recovery will surprise the doctors.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight he said very soon you will have many reasons to laugh.

When you read 1kings 17 v 8-16 when the man of God got to the widow of Zarephat and said give me your last meal and from now you will always have enough meal for your son, for yourself and for me your guest, the man of God was basing his prophecy on the fact that the earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof.

But the Almighty God that can take something that is so little and just keep on multiplying.

One of this so called clever journalists was talking to me and he thought he was going to trap me.

“How can you be asking this poor people to give offerings?”

Please my brothers and my sisters next time somebody calls you poor, tell him he is not talking out you, I have thought you the importance of a name, if they give you a name and you accept that name, that name will be with you forever.

Anytime anybody calls you poor, tell them I am not poor.

I told the fellow I said “thank you, for years people in Nigeria go abroad begging for money

Oh, I am a preacher give me some dollars, I am doing some work for God give me some pounds.

And those who are giving them kept on getting richer and those who are getting remain poor.

I said when my own turn came I made up my mind; the God in America is the God in Nigeria, we will not beg.

In the Name that is above every other name, we will lend to the nations.

But the only way to get out of poverty is to begin to sow from the little we had.

He was asking the question during one of the convention, look at these people by the grace of God, people who come to our convention are fed two times a day, the money we spend on feeding alone; all the offerings cannot even buy the food of one day, all the offerings of the entire week cannot buy the food of one day.

I told him let me show you were they kill a thousand cows a day.

To feed the people, but we encourage the people to give whatever they can because that is the only way to get out of poverty.

When you give little, God will begin to multiply.

The little will begin to multiply, the little will become big, the big will become very big, the very big will become abundant.

In the name that is above every other name very soon those of you that they are calling poor will begin to lend to the nations.

When the man of God said give me that little which you have, he is basing it on the fact that the earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof, and he can take little and keep on multiplying.

So those of you who have very little now, lift up your head high. One of the men who preached before I also said something very beautiful; he said

If you want to know the difference between those when they need help, God will send somebody and those when they need help, God will come himself, he said there is a difference between the two.

He said those who will expect help sent from God are those who tell God about their problems.

But those who will expect God himself to come are those who tell their problems about their God.

I like that one that was beautiful! So if you have little, tell the little I serve the all sufficient God.

If you feel pain, tell that pain I serve the great physician. If the enemy tries to shake you, tell the enemy I serve the Lord of host and the Almighty God will show up Himself.

Tonight, in the day you are not even expecting help will come your way.

God can keep your little oil flowing, I know this from experience.

I have told you the story before; I am telling it because of those of you who are hearing it for the first time, I know some of you won’t believe it, it doesn’t matter, it doesn’t change the fact.

I went to preach in the east, I was returning in my Toyota Crown car, I got to Onitsha, there was no fuel, I crossed the bridge to Asaba, no fuel, I said no problem I will get fuel when I get to Ore, because Ore was a depot. By the time I got to Ore, my tank was reading reserve.

I got to Ore no fuel. Lord, what do I do?

And at that time I was still a lecturer in the University of Lagos and I have lectured on Monday.

It was Sunday, what do I do?

And I heard God speak to me. I pray that God will speak to you. “Son, ” he said, “take your eyes off the gauge and drive on”, yes Lord.

I took my eyes off the gauge drove on reserve from Ore all the way to Surulere, I parked my car before I looked at the gauge and the gauge read empty.

When I told the story somebody said maybe he drove on the blood of Jesus, God will have mercy on you.

All am saying is this, every one of you in need in whatever form, that help will come today in Jesus name.

And then my children have done a very good job on who will get the help. I just want to add one little bit to what they have already said.

The one who will get the help is the one who is willing and obedient.

Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said your situation now looks like you are totally defeated. He asked me to tell you, you will soon sing the song of victory.

The Lord said there is someone here, He said your cry has come to Me! The Lord says very soon you will see the evidence that I have already answered your prayer.

Isaiah 1 v 19 says if you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the Land, God will not help those who are not willing to be helped.

He will not force Himself on you, He is a gentleman.

Each time I read Revelation 3 v 20 where the Lord says behold I stand at the door and I knock, if any man hears my voice and open the door, I will come in and sup with him and he with me.

Somebody says if He is the Almighty, why doesn’t he just kick and open the door, I said He is not an armed robber, He is a gentleman he knocks, if you don’t open the door, he goes away, he won’t force Himself on you.

You won’t believe it, I have seen cases where we are praying for the sick and the sick weren’t getting better and we asked.

I know a particular case, when we asked the woman what is going on?

Everything God says we should do we have done, how come you are not getting better? She said “I don’t want to be better,” “why not?”

She said before, I feel sick when my husband closes in his place of work, he goes to the clubhouse.

Since I became sick, as soon as he finishes from work he rushes back home. She said I want to keep my husband.

We told her you can be well and can still keep your husband.

There are many people you are praying for, you need to ask them why are we not getting results?

If you don’t want to be well, God will not force you.

I know a case of a man that was coughing very badly and they call us to come and pray for him.

We said, sir, what is your prayer request?

He said pray that the cough will be going small, small.

Incredible!

If you are willing and obedient then you will eat the good of the land.

God will not help you if you don’t want to be helped. Is there anybody here today who will say God, I am willing help me?

You must be willing and you must be obedient, nobody can receive help from the Almighty God who is not willing to obey Him.

I have told us again and again, many at times, in the eagerness of the evangelist to bring in Jesus Christ, he tells you half of the story; come to Jesus Christ he will save your soul.

That is true! Come to Jesus Christ, He will solve all your problems, that is true. But that is not all, in Matthew 11 v 28 that one of my sons quoted which is what the evangelist would have quoted and stopped.

They should have included verses 29& 30 come unto me all that labour and all ye that are heavy laden and I will give you rest, but he didn’t stop there. He said take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly.

Don’t worry, my yoke is easy my burden is light, but what is he saying, if you come to me you must be willing to come under a new management.

I will not just be your Savior, I must be your Lord also, you must not just come for the blessings you must come for the responsibilities, you must not just be willing you must also be obedient.

He wants to help you, but don’t let anybody deceive you; nothing goes for nothing.

You can’t receive help from the Lord Jesus Christ and then continue to worship the devil It is not going to happen.

So don’t come to Jesus Christ, unless you are willing to be obedient to Him that is why we say you are surrendering your life to Jesus Christ.

That reminds me to bring greetings from all your brothers and sisters in Latin America, we were with them last month and they said I should greet you.

So am delivering their message.

I explained to them like I am explaining to you; don’t come forward to surrender your life to Jesus if all you want are the miracles He can give. If you come to Him you must also be willing to obey His commandments, if you are willing to combine the two then your help has already come.

If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land.

So if there is anyone here tonight, if you are willing and you will be obedient, you want to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, you want Him not only to be your Savior, but to be your Lord; you want Him to wipe away all your sins, you want Him to solve all your problems, but you are also determined that from now on you will obey Him, you can come forward and I will pray for your salvation.

So those of you who are already at the front begin to call on the Almighty God, ask Him to have mercy on you, ask Him to save your soul, tell Him that from now on you will serve Him completely, that He will be your Lord, that you will obey Him in all things, that you will say bye to a life of sins and you will do His will from now henceforth

The rest of us, let’s interceded for these people, and pray for them; that the Almighty God who saved our souls will save their souls also.

Let’s pray for them, that God will give them a brand new beginning.

Let’s intercede for them brethren, that the power that is in the blood of Jesus will wash away all their sins and give them a brand new beginning.

Savior, we just want to bless your name, we want to give you all glory and honor, for this people who have come forward to surrender their lives to you, father you promise that whosoever will come unto you, you will in no wise cast away.

They have come unto you now Father, please receive them in Jesus name. Save their souls today in Jesus name, let your blood wipe away their sins in Jesus name.

My Lord and my Savior, I am praying tonight that as you are saving their souls you will write their names in the book of life and don’t let them ever go back into the world of sin.

Father, am praying that from now on anytime they call on you, you will please answer them by fire.

Thank you all Almighty God.

In Jesus mighty name we prayed.

I am rejoicing with you tonight because by the grace of God from now on, every day I will be praying for you, so I am going to need your name, your address and your prayer request.

Very soon you will be receiving miracles and you will know there must be somebody somewhere praying for you and that somebody is me.

Divine Specifications For Good Success. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Memorise:
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Luke 6:38

Read:
1 Chronicles 4:9-10

9 And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.
10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

Message

Virtually everything on earth is guided by principles, rules and regulations. There are divine specifications (Biblical principles and rules) for whoever wishes to be successful in any area of life. It has been rightly pointed out by those who claim to be experts that one in every three marriages, businesses and ministries fail. However, there are important biblical principles which will help you to succeed where others have failed. To succeed where others have failed, learn to do these two things. First, observe why others failed. This principle is illustrated by this old African fable. An old lion requested a visit in his den from other animals because he was sick and at the point of death. Many animals except the tortoise heeded the invitation; they never returned again. After a long while, the tortoise visited the lion. However, instead of entering the lion’s den, he stayed outside. He observed that there were many footsteps entering the lion’s den, but none coming out. So from outside, the tortoise greeted the lion and quickly fled his den. The tortoise succeeded where other animals failed because it was patient enough to observe and discover why others failed. The second secret is to know where to start. Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:10 knew where to start.

“And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.”

Are you into a business venture, full time ministry or marriage that is in crisis? To succeed where others failed, discover why they failed. There are reasons why many ventures fail. These include poor business plans, lack of vision and commitment, poor market assessment, wrong financial considerations, weak monitoring and prayerlessness. After discovering why others failed, know where to start. To succeed in marriage, career, academics, business life and ministry, you should have a vision. Run your life, business and ministry professionally. Plan ahead, be organised and be committed to excellence. You should also be diligent and hardworking. Be persistent and let God be your Number One priority. Jabez was more honourable than his brethren because he called on the El-Shaddai and was specific in his request. He requested for divine prosperity and protection and received both from God. You can do the same today.

Key Point:
To succeed where others failed, let God be your Number One.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

Sundry Truths About Light. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adebye. Daddy G O

Sundry Truths About Light. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adebye. Daddy G O

Memorise:
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
John 1:4

Read:
Matthew 5:14-16

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Message

In Isaiah 60:1, we are enjoined to rise and shine. To shine means to reflect light. It could also mean to fulfil your purpose. John the Baptist knew the purpose of his existence. He faced this purpose squarely and refused to be distracted. John 5:35 says this concerning him:

“He was a burning and a shinning light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.”

Light burns. Light cannot be separated from heat. Science confirms that light is produced by hot objects. A good example of this is the sun. The sun burns itself to give light. As children of God, we are commanded to shine, and in order to shine, we must burn. The source of our light is God (John 1:4). That Source shines in darkness and darkness cannot overcome it. In other words, it resists darkness. There are lots of lessons to learn from this truth. First, we must shine and resist darkness. It is wrong for a child of God to stay idle and allow the works of darkness to thrive. As a child of God, you should be hot for the Lord. Evil and works of darkness should not feel comfortable wherever you are. However, no one can do this by his or her strength alone. You definitely need God for success and sustenance. He is the only reliable source. It is therefore important that you remain connected to your Source so that you don’t burn out (Proverbs 3:5-6).

The word of God teaches that light cannot be hidden (Matthew 5:14-15). No one lights a candle and puts it under a bushel. No! The beauty of light is seen when it is exposed, not hidden. If you are working in an organisation and your co-workers cannot identify the light of Christ in you, then something is seriously amiss. Why? Because light cannot be hidden. In the same vein, we must know that we cannot hide our true character from people. It is both dangerous and unprofitable to be pretentious. We should therefore let people know our true colour. How? Be the best you can be for God. When you make up your mind to reflect the light of God in the midst of unrighteousness, the presence of God will always be seen in your life. A perfect illustration of this truth can be found in Joseph. He got to Egypt as a slave in Potiphar’s house, and God was with him there. He was tempted to hide the light and compromise his stand but he refused to yield to temptation. His action landed him in a dungeon, yet God was with him there. Finally he became the Prime Minister and God continued to be with him. Is your situation similar to that of Joseph? Please reflect the light. Are you facing a serious temptation to compromise your stand? Please reflect the light. God will always be with His children, and if God be with you, who can be against you?

Key Point:
If you remain connected to the source of Light (God), you will not burn out.
