In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let someone shout halleluiah!
The Lord will surprise you pleasantly tonight.
Tonight in the mighty name of Jesus, will be a night to remember.
Revelation 3 v 7-8 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth and no man shutteth and shutteth and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength and hast kept my word and hast not denied my name.
Behold, I have set before thee an open door and no man shut it. Tell your neighbor, the door that God has open for me, no man can shut it.
I am taking about the KEYS OF DAVID, I preached a sermon on Monday for those who came for divine encounter, I want to encourage you to get that tape.
You see every great man has a secret, when you see somebody who is extremely successful, if you get close to him, you will discover he has a secret; something he knows that you don’t know.
KFC as you know very well is the outcome of a secret that a man discovered concerning how to fry chicken.
Everybody had been frying chicken before, but suddenly he discovered something, a way of frying Chicken that all of a sudden his name became known throughout the world.Psalms_25-2-1: O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
The secret that will lead you to the top may God reveal it to you tonight.
What I told those who came on Monday is the secret of David, the secret that moved him from zero to hero, from somebody who was forgotten, somebody whose parent thought he will never amount to anybody, the one who nobody will present when they are looking for king, who later became the father of the King of kings.
That boy has a secret; the secret is in Psalm 34 v 1 He said I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
He had a secret! Listen to the rest of the tape.
The secret of David; praise,
The secret of Solomon; worship,
The secret of Elisha; instant obedience and on and on.
Every great man has a secret and that secret is called the key.
The key is a very small instrument with extraordinary power and influence, the one who has the key to the car controls speed.
The car could be there, brand new, strong, Mercedes X class or even Rolls Royce phantom, it will be there full of fuel, brand new engine, and until the man with the key comes it will become useless object, the man with the key to the car controls speed.
Thank God Jesus Christ has the key to accelerated promotion.
In Act 3 v 1-8 a man who has been sitting down on one spot for forty years, came in contact with some people who have been with Jesus, they said unto him, silver and gold have we none but what we have, we give unto you, in the name of Jesus rise up and walk.
And the man who have been on one spot for forty years, suddenly got up; he was walking and leaping and praising God.
Somebody is going to have accelerated promotion today and that will be the fellow who shout the name of Jesus the loudest.
We haven’t even started, but Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said I have replaced damaged womb before, I will do it again.
The one who has the key to the house controls accommodation.
Some years ago in America I went to preach in one of our churches, when we finished preaching they said they will be entertaining me in the house of a pastor.
So they got me into the car, the man who has the key to the car, moved me speedily to the house, we got to the house to discover that the one who had the key to the house,is not around.
The house was there, we were outside because the one who has the key to the house controls accommodation.
Thank God that Jesus controls accommodation.
In John 14 v 1-3 He said in my Father’s house there are many mansions, He said if it were not so I will have told you, He said I am going to prepare a place for you. I am going to prepare your accommodation, He said when I have finished preparing I will come for you and take you in.
And I am believing God for someone who is having problem paying his rent right now, in the New Year you will be a landlord.
He has done it before, he will do it again, if you can just shout that name Jesus.
Finally the one who has the key to the house arrived, we enter the house of the pastor and then we discovered that the one who has the key to the pantry is yet to arrive.
The one who has the key to the kitchen controls food.
So where we were sitting, there is food in the house, but we couldn’t reach the food because of one little instrument called key.
Thank God Jesus has the key to provision, because He said in John 6 v 48 He said I am the bread of life.
And I want to decree to someone here tonight, that for the rest of your life, you will not know hunger again.
My wife was telling me not too long ago, maybe I should stop telling the story. It is a story of divine provision, a story of how God can provide supernaturally.
I have told the story before, I want to tell it again, because God is going to use that story to meet the need of someone here tonight.
I said I had an uncle, he has gone to be with the Lord now. He was generous, but he was poor, I was staying with him; both of us were hungry because he had nothing, it is what he had that he can give me.
Since he wasn’t eating, I was hungry too. The two of us were sitting together looking at each other, paralyzed by hunger and all of a sudden one young girl came in carrying a basin with pounded yam and chicken stew, and said my sister said I should go and give this to you.
She was looking at my uncle, and my uncle was looking at the girl. The girl described the lady, my uncle said “I don’t know your sister” but the girl said “she asked me to bring the food to you“.
So she put down the food. And in Yoruba land, when you have nothing to give, you will say your gift will come next time, so the girl left.
And as soon as the girl stepped out of the house, we descended on the pounded yam, we were just breaking the bones of the chicken when the girl returned and said I am sorry I came to the wrong address.
The blessing that did not belong to you originally shall be diverted to you in Jesus name.
If only you can shout that name: Jesus.
The one who has the key to the generator controls power.
I won’t mention the name of the university, but there was a time I used to go to one particular University every month, and I will get there I will begin to wait for them, after some time somebody will come and say oh you have come?
I will say, oh yes, I have come, and then they will look for somebody with the key to open the chapel, after that they will begin to look for the man with the key to the generator, and until we get the man with the key to the generator, no power no light.
But thank God, Jesus has the key to the generator, because in Mathew 3 v 11 the Bible says He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire.
I am praying for someone here today, by the time you are leaving in the morning, you will be full with the power of the Holy Spirit, if only you can shout that name Jesus.
So a key, as small as it is, it is the only one that can grant you access; access into the car which is for speed, access to the house for accommodation, access to the kitchen for provision, access to the generator which is for power.
So the full meaning of John 14 v 6 when Jesus Christ said I am the way, The Truth and the Life, no man come to the Father except by Me, He is saying I am the One who grants you access.
And so tonight, it is important to take note of what Jesus Christ said when He said I have the key of David.
He has the key to healing 1 Peter 2 v 24 says by His stripes ye were healed.
Whether you believe it or not, Jesus gets excited when he hears the doctor saying; there is nothing more we can do.
Because then when He does what He alone can do nobody will share his glory.
Permit me to prophecy tonight to anyone here that doctors have told that there is nothing more we can do, in the Name that is above every other name, the doctors shall be surprised.
Because He says when I open, no man can shut. So when He decides to heal you it doesn’t matter the opinion of anybody.
And don’t misunderstand me, I thank the Almighty God for doctors, I have many of them as my children, wonderful people and may the Almighty God continue to bless all doctors.
Fantastic people, I can hardly imagine what the world will be without the doctors, but they have their limits, they get to a stage when they will say sorry but there is nothing more we can do.
There is even occasion when they will say “we don’t even know what is wrong with you, if we know what is wrong with you then we might be able to think of what to do, but we don’t even know.
Thank God there is somebody in heaven who knows all things, somebody who has no limit, somebody whose name is Jesus.
In Mark 2 v 1-12 they brought in a man who was paralyzed from the neck downwards, there is nothing the doctor can do for him.
Jesus took a look at him and said alright boy, your problems are over now, and the people there began to murmur, but Jesus had already decided, so let them murmur.
While they were murmuring, He said to the boy, get up and go home.
And he got up, picked up his bed and he went home.
I decree tonight in the Name of the one who sent me, every one of you who came here sick tonight, you will go home well in Jesus name.
In Mark 5 v 25-34 the Bible tells us about the woman with the issue of blood, doctors have failed her, not that they didn’t try, they tried but they couldn’t handle the problem.
Because the problem with the woman wasn’t actually physical, it was something deeper, but just one little contact with the Lord Jesus Christ and the issue of blood ended.
It doesn’t matter what your report may read, the report is as known to man.
Every report that leaves out the Almightiness of God is not a conclusive report.
In an instance, this woman who has suffered many things from many years from many physicians, rather than getting better she grew worse.
She was made completely whole, that God, has not changed.
In 2 Kings 5 v 1-14 the Bible tells us the story of Neman, powerful man, famous man, successful man, popular man but he was a leper.
He had an incurable disease and then the day came when the Almighty God decided to open the door to his healing.
Do you know that several forces worked against him that day; a girl testified about the power of God in Israel and then instead coming to the prophet of God, he went to the king.
Kings have their power but there is a different between a king and a prophet.
And then he finally came to the Prophet and the prophet said; go and wash, and he got angry.
Can you imagine an angry leper, but because God has made up his mind.
I pray for someone here tonight, before this night is over the door to your healing shall be opened.
I can tell you a story, one young man came to us, he said his wife had run mad and according to Yoruba beliefs if somebody is mad, but hasn’t come out yet in public, they say there is cure, but this particular wife had gone naked all the way to the market.
According to Yoruba belief that fellow is going to die mad.
So they bundled her, took her to one herbalist somewhere, that one tried and nothing happened.
Somebody informed us and we went to see the woman, we prayed a simple prayer and left.
And then they contacted the husband and said this man came and prayed for only two minutes.
Two minute prayer for this kind of problem!
So they decided that we better take her to the physciatrist hospital, so they took her to the physciatrist hospital.
But as the Almighty God will have it, the professor said, let us observe this lady before we know what type of drugs to apply.
After two weeks, they sent for the husband, if you say there is something wrong with this woman, there must be something wrong with you.
No drug, nothing, two minute prayer, because God has decided to heal her.
I say to someone here today the door to your healing will be open tonight.
Jesus has the key to success, to prosperity, just one word from Him and failure will change to success.
Luke 5 v 1-7 Peter had fished all night, he caught nothing, Jesus said do this; lunch into the deep throw your net.
Peter argued, he gave reasons why he could not succeed, but Jesus has decided to open the door to success.
You know the rest of the story, he caught so much fish two boats were sinking.
The Bible said something in Isiah 30 v 21 and I believe that passage is for somebody here tonight, the Bible said you will hear a word behind you saying:
“This is the way”
Just a word from the Lord Jesus Christ and all the years of struggling suddenly will end.
All you need to succeed in life is just an idea, one single idea.
In Genesis 30 v 26-43 God gave just one idea to Jacob; whenever an animal is pregnant do the following to a piece of wood placed it before the animal when he come to drink, by the time the baby come it is going to look like the piece of wood.
One idea, and before long this man who came to the land empty handed became extremely wealthy.
You know I have always told people, if you do what God said in Malachi 3 v 10 where He said you bring all the tithes into my house, I will open the windows of heaven and drop you a blessing, He didn’t say two, just one idea from the most high God, that suddenly there will be no room to contain your blessings.
I pray for someone here today that idea that will turn you into an overflowing success, receives it tonight in Jesus name.
Just one idea, I mean 2King 4 v 1-7 the widow of the son of the Prophet had been poor and heavily indebted for years, when the creditors came and said if you don’t pay by tomorrow we will sell your son, she ran to the man of God and the man of God gave her a key that will open the door to her overflowing abundance.
It doesn’t matter what the creditors are saying, it doesn’t matter the treats coming right, left and center, if God decides to open the door to your blessing, just one simple direction from the most high God and things will change completely.
May that be your portion in Jesus name.
When the Almighty God decides to open your door to breakthrough, nobody can shut the door.
If he says your day of breakthrough has come and I know for someone here tonight, that day has come, all the labors of the past will suddenly become rewarded.
I can give you several examples 2king 7 v 1-11 a city has been besieged by the enemy.
Thank you Father, the Lord said even as I mention the word besiege, there is someone here tonight that the siege against you is over.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said this is an order from the Most High God, that from tonight; you are no longer permitted to stay in the valley.
2 King 7 v 1-11 A city has been besieged by the enemy, things got so bad women began to eat their children and the man of God spoke a word, that within twenty four hours, food will become absolute surplus.
And then there was a professor of economics, the minister of provision to the king who said ‘can this things be?’
But God has decided to open the door, when He opens no professor can shut.
In the Name that is above any other name, your breakthrough will come tonight.
In John 5 v 2-9 one man has been sick for thirty eight years, sitting down by the pool of Bethsaida, but the day came when the Almighty God said;
“Alright, enough is enough”.
And He decided to open the door to his healing, to his breakthrough.
He has failed thirty eight times, he had been defeated thirty eight times, he has been sad thirty eight times.
He had almost lost hope completely, he had been stagnant for thirty eight years.
The day the Almighty God came to him and said to him,
“Will you be made whole?”
By the time God was saying that, He had decided to open the door to the breakthrough for this man.
The man began to tell stories.
I know there are some of you here, you have been coming to the Holy Ghost Service, before crying to God for the fruit of the womb, you have come to Shiloh hour, you have come to every meeting, nothing had happened.
I know some of you are already saying thank you daddy,but I am not here because of healing, I am not here because of prosperity, I am here because of the fruit of the womb.
Good, that is where I am going, Jesus has the key.
He says when I open, no man can shut and when I shut no man can open.
In Genesis 29 v 31, I suddenly discovered that a very beautiful lady that Jacob loved just couldn’t produce any child.
The sister; the same father, the same mother was producing children like a rabbit.
But this one, nothing, why?
Because God is the One who decided to shut her womb.
Give me a child or I die.
The woman cried to the husband; give me a child or I die.
The husband said the key to the womb is not in my hand, God has shut your womb I can’t open it, but then when the time came, God decided to remember her.
God will remember somebody here tonight. And the womb that t has been shut shall be open in Jesus name.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said very soon your doctor will say we don’t understand but you have a brand new body.
In Genesis 18 v 9-14 when God decided to open the womb of Sarah, her doubt, her unbelief, her age, the age of the husband all combined could not shut the door because God said, Sarah you are going to have a son and He said you will have it within nine months.
Sarah laughed, she laughed in mockery, she laughed as if to say to God ‘what kind of joke is this?’,
But God has already open the door and once the door is open, it was opened.
Nine months later, she was rejoicing.
I am believing God that there is someone here tonight that by next year’s convention, your baby will be two months old.
You know the story in 1 Samuel 1 v 1 -21 that is the story of Hannah, the Bible says the other wife, the adversary mocked her, tormented her, and used every opportunity available to show her she is barren.
‘You are just here eating my husband food, producing nothing for him’.
But when her day came, the mockers were silenced.
In the Name that is above every other names, those who are mocking you now will soon bow before your Lord.
Even the prophet, when he saw Hannah praying, thought she was drunk.
The prophet misunderstood her, but that didn’t stop God, but God has decided the time.
I want to encourage those of you who are here tonight, trusting God for the fruit of the womb, every report that says you are going to die barren is cancelled in Jesus name.
I can give you several examples, I have seen God at work, I know Him, I mean some of you probably remembered the testimony of a woman, after all kinds of test, the professor of gynecology called her and took something like a balloon and put it very close to fire so that the thing stuck together.
Gum together and said to the woman, do you see this thing?
The woman said yes, he said that is how your womb is, gummed together, nothing can grow in it, because it can’t even open up, it is gummed together.
The woman said would you please write down the report, the doctor wrote down the report and gave it to her.
And she came, we were in the Auditorium by the road, took the report and laid it before the Almighty God and said this is what the doctor said, what do you say?
Nine months later, her baby was crying.
Every report that is contrary to the will of God for your life is cancelled tonight in Jesus name.
If He opens, no man can shut. Now if man shut, God can open, if it is man that shut the door, the Almighty God can open it.
The Lord is saying there is someone here tonight in particular, He said your future will no longer be controlled by those who hate you.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight He said the cry of your heart is Lord, for how long will I toil without reward? The Lord asked me to tell whoever you are, your days of toiling are over.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said the enemy knocked you down, He said, but I will allow you to bounce up higher than before.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said your life used to be full of testimonies, He said they will be again.
I said if man shut the door, then God can open it, and I was mentioning Joshua 6, the children of Jericho build a wall so high, so wide, that there was no way the children of Israel can continue on their journey, the door was shut.
But the Almighty God came down and spoke to Joshua, and said all you want to do, is to do the following and the door that has been shut against you, I will open.
You know the rest of the story, by the time we got to verse 20 and the children of Israel shouted hallelujah, the wall that was built came down and that wall stayed down.
In the Name that is above every other name, every wall against your fruitfulness shall be destroyed tonight.
And maybe you may want to do what the children of Israel did, all they did was to shout one big halleluiah!
And if man opens his mouth to say impossible, the Almighty God can shut the mouth of lions.
In Daniel 3 Nebuchadnezzar said to Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego, he said who is that God that can deliver you out of my hand?
Where is that God coming from?
Before the day was out, the same Nebuchadnezzar said there is no God like the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.
If there is anyone here tonight that somebody had told you, stop wasting your time, stop praying, don’t let people like Adeboye deceive you, you can never have a child, nine month from now God will shut their mouth.
You know the testimony, am just sharing it for those who are probably coming for the first time.
One of my daughters, she may be somewhere in the crowd was barren, she has been going up and down, after some time the relative called the husband aside and said stop worrying yourself, your wife will never have a child, we have already taken her womb, that is what they told the husband.
And then during one of the programs several years ago, the Almighty God said they have told you, you can never have a child; you are going to have a set of twins.
And the girl jumped and said glory be to God that must be me.
That month she became pregnant.
Even the doctor said it is not possible, after some time the doctors examined her again and said well I don’t understand, but there is a baby in your womb, I can see a baby.
The girl said to the doctor, God didn’t say one, God said twins.
The doctor said even the one we see we are not even sure yet.
Well come back later.
She went back and the doctor said well, there are two here!
And the day came for delivery and because they were quietly well to do, and they don’t want to take any risk they went abroad for the delivery.
And the husband said I don’t want the case of the baby dying during labor, will you just bring out the baby yourself.
So they put the girl to sleep and perform an operation and brought out the twins, when the girl recovered, she saw everybody looking at her as if she is somebody coming from the Mars.
She said what is the problem?
‘Where are my children?’
They said there is nothing wrong with your children, they are fine.
Then why are you looking at me like this?
They said wait for the doctor.
The doctor came and said “I have performed about three thousand operations, this is the first time that I will bring out a set of twins and there is no womb”.
No womb and God brought out a set of twins where there is no womb.
When we are talking about God, please let’s put science apart, when we are talking about God, stop thinking about how your brain can explain the thing.
You can never explain the One who said let there be light and there was light, you can never explain the One who threw the world into space, you can never explain the One who brought water out of the rock, you can never explain the One who brought blood to bones and flesh, you can’t explain God.
And what he is about to do for you tonight, nobody will be able to explain it.
The Almighty God said there is someone here tonight, He said from now on every gate will lift up its head for you.
Thank you my Father, this one is for me, I know it is going to be a good night
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said in your life I will reveal my glory again and again.
Now Jesus has the key of David but then he has given to us a key that we call the master key, the key that can open a car, open a house, open the Kitchen, open the generator, open the door to healing, open the door to breakthroughs, open the door to victory, open the door to everything.
Those of you will remember when we had a congress on the master key years ago; I told you what that key is, I said for every car there is a master key that can open all cars, if you go to an hotel they have what they call the master key that can open every door of every room. But the master key of the car cannot open the door of a house, but there is a master key that can open every door and you know what that master key is that God has given us? It is holiness, just one word.
Somebody asked me he said, why are you always talking about holiness?
Another fellow said why are you so particular about living holy? And I told him and I said initially, I was living holy because I was afraid of God; I don’t want to sin, I don’t want him to be angry with me, because it is a fool who will not be afraid of the consuming fire.
The elders says no matter how mad a dog is, when it sees fire, he will back off.
I said but for several year, I leave holy because I enjoy it. He said what do you mean about that?
I said the day I discovered that holiness is the master key, I made up my mind, I am not going to lose this key.
Because what is holiness? Holiness means obeying God, Obey him completely Exodus 15 v 26 made it clear, if you hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all that I command you this day, I will bring no sickness or disease upon you for I am the Lord that heals you.
Be holy and you will enjoy divine health, holiness is the master key to wealth.
Deuteronomy 28 v1-2 if you will hearken diligently to the voice of your Lord your God, to observe and to do all that he commands you this day, then blessing shall come upon you and overtake you.
Be holy and you will be running from blessing because they are too many and the blessing will be pursuing you.
Holiness is the master key to victory the same Deuteronomy 28 v7 provided you are satisfied verse 1 and you are living holy, God will cause the enemy that are rising up against you to be smitten before your face.
They will come against you in one way, they will flee before you in seven ways. He said you won’t have to fight. Be holy and watch God demolishing your enemies.
Holiness is the master key to breakthrough, Deuteronomy 8 v 12 that is where the Almighty God said he will open unto you the treasures of heaven, that you will never borrow but you will be lending to nations.
Holiness is the master key to fruitfulness, Deuteronomy 28 v 11 it says the Almighty God will bless the seed of your body, even your animals will be producing like nobody’s business.
Holiness is the master key to promotion, accelerated and permanent. Deuteronomy 28 v 13 he said you shall be head and not tail, above only and not beneath, that is the master key.
And of course holiness is the master key to heaven, Hebrew 12 v 14 the word of God is clear, He said without holiness no man shall see God.
It doesn’t matter how much we pray, if the fellow we are praying for is not holy, there will be no answer.
Because the bible is so clear, Isaiah 59 v 1-2, it said is the hand of the Lord not shorten that He cannot save, neither His is ear heavy that He cannot hear, He said but sin, transgression have come between you and your God that He won’t hear.
I have said it before several time you pray for someone who is sick, you do everything you know how to do and the fellow goes ahead and dies.
And I said God, what is happening?
Everything you asked me to do, I did; fast I fasted, pray I prayed, bind I bound, loose I lose.
And God will say son you don’t know all the story. In other word there is something in the life of the fellow that is hindering your prayers.
I tell you just one more story and then we pray.
Some of you heard a story about a chief, extremely wealthy chief and he is a friend to a traditional ruler who happen to be one of my sons and the chief became sick and the traditional ruler said please he is my friend I don’t want him to die.
I said no problem we will go and pray for him. I got there and said “sir, are you a child of God, are you a Christian?”
He said “oh yes”.
“You ‘ve surrender your life to Jesus?”
He said “completely”.
In that case the matter should be easy.
So we prayed.
I went back a week later to go and check and I found that he was still sick.
So I felt well, maybe this one require a very important attention and I have two prayer partners then.
So I called the two of them and say you are going to do a very special job for me; you are going to go to the house of this chief; you are going to be there for seven days and seven night, you are going to fast and pray.
You must not eat there, the water you will drink take it from home, yes sir.
Pray that God will heal him and they went after seven days they came back, how is he?
We can’t see any change yet.
So I went and I saw him, so I made up my mind that this one is going to require my own special attention; so I decided to fast for twenty one days and nights, just for this fellow.
It was at that stage God spoke to me and said son, if you want to want to fast it is good for you but not because of this fellow because he is going to die.
He is a Christian, he is your child, and the Lord said ask him the following questions; and I began to write down the questions; one, two, three, four, five, six, seven.
I went to him and question that every Christian will say of course, of course.
I said sir I was praying for you, God told me to ask the following questions; these are the question.
You know what he said? He said don’t come here again!
You don’t know all the answers!
I beg all of you who are here tonight because let me tell you the truth, the power of God is here tonight like never before, don’t miss this opportunity, stay away completely from sin from now on, withdraw from sin, begin a life of holiness and see the Almighty God at work.
And if you are here and you have not even given your life to Jesus Christ, you have not surrender your life to Him, you said you are going to church, you call yourself Christian but you are still committing sin, you have an opportunity to come and surrender your life to Jesus now.
Let his blood wash away your sin and then you will see what the Almighty God can do,
So, if you are here and you have not given your life to Jesus Christ, I am going to count from one to fifteen for the sake of those of you who are very far away, before I say fifteen come and stand before me here so we can pray for your salvation and then the Almighty God will do what He alone can do.
So I am counting now……
As you come begin to pray, calling on the Almighty God to have mercy on you, to save your soul, to forgive all your sins, to give you a brand new beginning.
Pray as you come; ask God to please be merciful, to forgive your sin, to wash you clean, to save your soul, to give you a brand new beginning.
Promise Him that from now on you will serve Him.
And please the rest of us lets stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them and intercede for every one of them; that God will save their souls today, that he will have mercy on them, that he will wash them clean in his blood.
Brethren let’s intercede for them and ask God to be merciful, God will forgive them their sins, give them a brand new beginning, save their souls, let’s pray that they will serve God from now on, they will never go back into the world….
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
