The Spirit Of Truth. The Counsellor

The Spirit Of Truth. The Counsellor

Acts_1-8: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Acts_1-8: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

John 14:16-17, NIV

I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counsellor to be with you forever – the Spirit of truth.

Jesus described the Holy Spirit as “Another.” The Greek word actually means “another who is exactly the same.” So although the Holy Spirit is a distinct person, He is exactly the same as Jesus, but without the physical body. He has been described as Jesus without skin. Or, like an FBI agent, He is Jesus undercover.

Isaiah_9-6: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isaiah_9-6: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

We know that Jesus is in heaven. As the first martyr, Stephen, was being stoned to death, he looked up and saw heaven open and Jesus standing at God’s right hand, preparing to welcome him home! (Acts 7:56)

Genesis_28-15-1: And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of
Genesis_28-15-1: And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of

But that doesn’t mean Jesus has left us to stumble through the darkness of the future on our own. He promised His disciples that when He went to heaven, He would ask His Father to send down to earth “Another.” One Who would have His same Mind, Will, Emotions, and Intellect. Jesus called Him the Counsellor (John 14:16), because He is readily available to give us wisdom for our decisions, direction for our future, insight into our problems, and management for our responsibilities.

Just Stop Everything and Take a Love Time-Out with CHRIST JESUS

Just Stop Everything and Take a Love Time-Out with CHRIST JESUS

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

John 15:13

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.

John 15:9

“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.

In your workplace, you probably take coffee breaks, lunch breaks, tea breaks and definitely toilet breaks. Why not do the same in your spiritual life—take time out for breaks, especially Time-Out with CHRIST JESUS?

What is Time-Out CHRIST JESUS? It is the time you take to enjoy and feed on the love of Jesus for you. At any time during the day, wherever you are, find a quiet spot and feed on the love of Jesus. Just sit down and talk to Him. Say to Him, “Thank You, Jesus, for loving me. Nothing is going to happen to me that You don’t already know about. Jesus, when I could not save myself, You died for me. You gave up Your life for me. What else will You not do for me!”

Such love breaks are typified in the Old Testament by Aaron the high priest and his sons eating the breast of the animal sacrificed. (Leviticus 7:31) The breast of the animal speaks of the love of Jesus. Today, you are a priest to God. (Revelation 1:6) So spend time feeding on the love of Jesus for you, and see yourself nourished, strengthened and sustained by His love.

Jesus is our High Priest today

This means that His food is in loving us. He enjoys loving us and is also “nourished” by His love for us.

John_15-12: My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you
John_15-12: My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you

But do not forget that the breast was roasted by fire (Leviticus 7:35), which speaks of God’s judgment on Jesus as He hung on the cross because He was carrying our sins. So as you feed on Jesus’ love for you, see Him loving you at the cross. When things around you are not going well, do not allow the devil to say to you, “If God loves you, how come these things are happening to you?” My friend, interpret God’s love for you based on the cross, not on your present circumstances.

John_15-16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you
John_15-16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you

During the day, when you are hard at work, when busyness sets in, when problems pile up or when discouragement comes, just stop everything and take a love time-out with Christ Jesus! Let Jesus love you. Let yourself enjoy being loved by Him. Lean on His bosom, abide in His love and be nourished by His love for you!

Power Of Our Confession. Death And Life Are In The Power Of The Tongue

Power Of Our Confession. Death And Life Are In The Power Of The Tongue

Proverbs_21-23: Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles
Proverbs_21-23: Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”

Proverb 18:21

Numbers 13 tells that 12 spies had gone to spy the land that God gave to the children of Israel. Caleb said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. But the men that went up with him said, we are not able to go up against the people because they are stronger than us. They said the land which we have gone to search is a land that eats up its inhabitants and all the people that we saw in it were men of great stature. We saw the giants, the sons of Anak and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

Romans_10-10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation
Romans_10-10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation

They said they were like grasshoppers in their own sight. That is what we are thinking about ourselves. And so what they were thinking about themselves became what their enemies were thinking about them. When you think evil or negative about your life, you will soon begin to say it and by saying it you arm your enemy and you will have what you say. Because of this God was upset that He wanted to wipe them out completely but Moses intervened and pleaded with God in the place of prayer. And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to your word, but as truly as I live, all those men who have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice shall not see the land which I swear unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it . . . As truly as I live . . . as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you (Numbers 14:20-23,28)

Romans_1-16: For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek
Romans_1-16: For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek

It was God’s idea to take them to the Promised Land but they said no, it eats its inhabitants. There are giants there and those that go in there do not come out. Look at how foolish their statement was. They went to spy the same land that they said eats its inhabitants and they came out with grapes and it didn’t eat them. And God said to them those of you who think you can take accountability of your life from 20 years and above will not enter. Your carcasses will fall in the wilderness except Joshua and Caleb who believed me because they have a different spirit

Mark_9-23-1: Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth
Mark_9-23-1: Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth

They don’t believe that they will not be a disappointment or a byword. They don’t believe that things will not turn around for them. They are the ones that believe that no matter what it is, head or tail they win. They believe that somehow, it will be good for them because God is good and His thought towards them is a thought of peace. He is for them! And He who spared not His only son but gave Him up for them how can He not through Him freely give them all things. That’s the way they were thinking.

Further reading: James 3:1-8

Daily Bible reading: Morning-Psalms 51-53, Evening-Romans 2

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O, RCCG
Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O, RCCG

How many are expecting something special this Good Friday? If you are expecting something special let me hear you shout hallelujah.

I want to thank God for the Pastor who spoke before me. As an evangelist, he has already done the work of an evangelist; prepare a ground for me, well! I don’t mind telling him that was a very good job, he did a good job.

Mark 10 is the passage I was planning to use and he chose that one too, he must have stolen it from me somehow. Mark 10:13-16, he approach it from the Evangelist angle, I will approach it from the Pastor angle.

The theme for tonight is ‘TOUCH ME OH LORD‘.

“And they brought small children to Him, that He should touch them: and disciples rebuke those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, He was much displeased, and said unto them, suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And He took them up in His arms, put His hands upon them, and blessed them.”

Matthew_18-3: And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew_18-3: And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Tell your neighbor one more time God will touch you tonight. Whenever God touches anything, that thing experiences a miracle.

If He touches anything at all, that thing experiences a miracle. In John 6:5-13, as we discussed, those of you who were here for the Holy Communion last night, John 6:5-13, Jesus touched ordinary bread and the bread began to experience multiplication; the lunch of a small boy became so multiplied that it fed a huge crowd five thousand men not counting women and children.

That is why I am sure that when God touches you today, you will begin to experience multiplication.

In Luke 7:11-15, the Bible tells us of a story of a widow who was going to bury her only son; Jesus came along and touched the coffin, when He touched the coffin, the coffin became empty because the fellow that coffin thought it was going to contain for eternity got up and walked out of the coffin.

I prophesy to someone here today that the coffin that the enemy had prepared for you shall remain empty forever.

Lamentations_3-22: It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
Lamentations_3-22: It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

In 2 king 4:1-7, the Almighty God touched the oil of a destitute widow and the oil just kept on flowing, the oil kept on flowing, the oil kept on flowing so much that, not only the widow was able to pay off her debt, the Bible says she lived on the left over for the rest of her life.

She never knew poverty again.

I have told you the story before of a young man, at least an elder now sitting somewhere up here, who came to us completely destitute, came for prayers, he said I don’t know what to do anymore everything is now not just zero but below zero; and I prayed for him and God moved me to take the little money I had in my pocket, and am telling you it was little because I was poorer than I am then, but the Almighty God spoke through me as I handed over the money to him and said this money will never finish- I have never read about that before but it came out of my mouth.

Today by the grace of God that money has not finished; the man now has at least two houses that I know of.

I am decreeing to someone here tonight my God will touch the money in your pocket and that money will never finish.

So when God touches anything, that thing experiences a miracle.

Psalms_5-12-1: For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
Psalms_5-12-1: For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

When He touches a human being: when He touches a man or touches a woman, that person experiences at least a miracle. It could be;

A Miracle Of Healing. Mathew 8:14-15, the Bible tells us Jesus came into the house of Peter and met the mother in-law sick of a fever. As soon as He touched her the fever departed.

So it could be ordinary fever. I call it ordinary, but those of us who used to suffer from malaria fever, we know that fever is not ordinary at all but Jesus touched the woman and she was healed immediately.

Or it could be more something even more complicated like in Luke 13:11-13, the Bible talks of a woman who had a spirit of infirmity she was bent double. No matter how she tried she could not lift up herself, but the Almighty God touched her and instantly she was set free.

I thank God for the testimonies we heard tonight. If God gives us time we would hear more of that fellow the Doctors said she would never walk again because of an accident and she heard the message on Radio, she wasn’t even here.

She heard on Radio that God has spare parts and if you want a replacement for any part of your body, all you need to do is ask Him.

And in faith on her bed, she asked for a new leg and woke up the following morning and discovered that God has already answered.

I decree tonight any part of your body that needs replacement you will get a new one before tomorrow morning.

In Mathew 8:1-3, the Bible tells us that a leper came to Jesus and said I know you can make me well you can make me clean if you are willing, the Bible says Jesus touched him.

Leprosy then was incurable, but when Jesus touches a leper the incurable becomes cured.

There might be some people here tonight or people listening to me by television or listening by internet or listening by radio, the Almighty God who can cure the incurable will touch you tonight.

Isaiah_53-5-1: But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed
Isaiah_53-5-1: But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed

I want to remind you of the story of one day years ago when I went to preach in another man’s church in Kaduna and I taught about faith, about my God who can do all things.

Let me ask you a question before I move further, how many of you believe that my God can do all things?

Let me put it in another way, how many of you believe that God will do the impossible for you?

If you believe that let Him hear your hallelujah.

I finished preaching and the Pastor said I should go and wait in His office to rest for a while, while he was attending to other things and he put somebody by the door to make sure I will not be disturbed.

But then a woman came and said I want to see the Preacher, the man at the gate said eeeeh why did you want to see him?

The woman said, it is none of your business, I must see him; anyway one way or the other she forced her way in.

And she said, sir, I want to tell you what I want to tell you because I have never heard anyone talk about God the way you have done tonight.

She said am also telling you because I know you don’t live in this town, so very soon you will be gone, so I have a serious secret I must share.

I said what is the problem?

Then she removed…, because she covered her face only the eyes were showing,

She removed the covering and I stared back because she was a leper.

Haa! Woman, what are you doing here? I said why didn’t you tell the Pastor to pray for you.

She said I told you, if they pray for me, I don’t get healed when they see me next Sunday they will say here comes the leper.

Why don’t you go to the hospital?

She said, I have two sons, I go to the hospital, they will send me to the leper colony, but you are not here you are leaving tomorrow, if you pray and nothings happens, you wouldn’t be here next Sunday and in any case from what you said about God I believe your God can do my own.

Tell your neighbor God will do my own tonight.

1-Peter_2-24: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed
1-Peter_2-24: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed

And I prayed a simple prayer for her: I did not touch her. About some months later I was back in the same church and as I was coming out of the car, I saw a very beautiful woman, smiling brightly coming, coming towards me:

Hello do I know you?

She said, you know me, I was the leper, but your Father healed me. I didn’t touch her, but God did.

That God, my God will touch the incurable here tonight.

When He touches a man the fellow will experience resurrection.

The resurrection can be physical like in Mark 5:35-42, Jairus daughter was dead. Jesus went in there touched the girl and says little girl, I say unto you arise and immediately she arose. It could be Resurrection Physical.

It could be a Resurrection Of Destiny. I mentioned to you earlier on, Luke 7:11-15, the young man, the son of the widow that was going to be buried; as far as human beings are concerned, his destiny was over and the destiny even of the mother was over.

He was the only son, the only son died, they were going to bury him and they were going to bury, as it were, the future of the mother with him.

But when Jesus touched him in that coffin, the destiny of that boy was restored.

If there is anyone here today that the enemy had already truncated your destiny as God touches you tonight that destiny will be fully restored.

And of course you know the story in 2 King 4:8-37.

It’s the story of the Shunamite woman, the Bible says she was a great woman, and she was entertaining the man of God after some time she decided to build a house for the man of God,

And then finally the man of God said ok; what can I do for you?

And she said; I needed nothing.

But they discovered that she was barren.

And the man of God said ha ha you will have a son,

She didn’t believe but God has spoken.

Revelation_21-4: And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away
Revelation_21-4: And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away

Thank You my Father and my God. The LORD said there is someone here tonight whether here on this ground or you are listening to me by television, by radio or the internet, is not made clear, but your cry is that, next time when they bring children for their special Holy Ghost Service in April you will come with your own children too.

The word had gone out and nobody can bring it back, so get ready for your children.

So there was this Shunamite woman, the man of God said you are going to have a son, she didn’t believe it, but God has spoken so the baby came and of course she had tremendous joy and of all a sudden a day came when the devil came in and kill the boy.

Ha! And the woman said no I didn’t know I will have this kind of joy, now I have had it the devil is not going to take it from me.

She cried to the man of God, the man of God came and laid on that child three times and the child came back to live.

You know whenever God touches a man there is a restoration of hope. A restoration of joy, a restoration that which money cannot buy.

I decree tonight, anything that the enemy has already stolen from you when God touches you today it shall be fully restored.

Some of you will remember the story of one of my covenant partners,

And may Almighty God bless all my partners in Jesus’ Name,

Who had been barren for a very long time and then she became one of my partners and then she became pregnant and went abroad to register for delivery because she want to take care of the pregnancy with every care possible.

And then she did a test and discovered that the baby in the womb was already HIV positive and they were going to evacuate.

And she said no, you can’t evacuate, you are not evacuating anything.

She cried to God and said, how can this be? I am a partner with Your son, she was crying to God in the night.

And God spoke to her and said, don’t worry, I have already taken care of the situation and I will give you a sign before you get back to Nigeria.

Then lo and behold, she boarded the plane at Heathrow, as she was there in the same plane I was, she saw me and began to scream.

And she said, aha this’s the sign, this is the sign, God has given me the sign.

Everybody in the first class was wondering what’s wrong with this woman who was screaming.

Anyway, we prayed a simple prayer and the Almighty God, the One who can reverse the irreversible not only provided total healing for the baby in the womb, but the husband that infected the baby was healed at the same time.

When God touches you today the healing will not be only for your children, but for the entire family.

When God touches a man he experiences victory

.

In 1 King 18:46

Thank You Father. The Almighty God said there is someone here tonight He said the fire ranging in your home shall be put out this week.

Thank You Daddy. The LORD said there is a woman here that there is a huge crisis between you and your children, Daddy ask me to tell you I will resolve the crisis.

Thank You Father. The LORD said there is someone here tonight, you are very frightened He asked me to tell you, relax I will take care of you.

Hebrews_6-10: For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister, God Cares
Hebrews_6-10: For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister, God Cares

Now 1 King 28:46, the Bible tells us that the hand of God was on Elijah and he outran Ahab in his chariot.

The king was riding in his chariot, Elijah was running on foot and he outran Ahab. When God touches you He gives you the ability to outrun your enemies.

I am prophesying to someone here today that all those who have been pursuing you all these years will never even see your back again.

God touched David: 1 Samuel 17:34-51, and because the hand of God was on David, he was able to kill a lion, he was able to kill a bear, and he was able to destroy Goliath.

So when the hand of God touches a man He gives him the kind of victory that brings total destruction to the enemy.

In Judges 15:14-15, the hand of came on Samson and in the twinkling of an eye, he was able to wipe out all those who thought they were destroying him.

Some of you know the testimony of one of my sons, l have shared it here before, some people ganged up against him in his place of work because of his Christian standing and they decided they will eliminate him.

He came to the Holy Ghost service and the word of God came and said,

There is someone here, the enemy have just concluded a meeting to finish you, long after they have gone you will still be rising.

John_10-10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
John_10-10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

The following week, all those who held the meeting to destroy him were all retired and the one they wanted to destroy was promoted.

I will prophesy to someone here today, even before tomorrow morning all those who are holding evil meetings concerning you they shall be disbanded.

When God touches a man he becomes spiritually activated.

If God touches you suddenly the power of the Holy Spirit that is already in you, dormant will suddenly begin to function.

In Acts 1:8, the Bibles says when you receive power, that you shall receive power when the Holy Ghost is come upon you and then you become a witness onto God in Jerusalem, in Judea, in Samaria and to the almost part of the world.

Whether you know me or not; those who know me in those days they knew that I was a very shy person, I preferred to just stay quietly with my mathematics; I didn’t want anyone to disturb me and so I use my mathematics as an excuse for just staying quiet.

Then the hand of God touched me when the Holy Spirit came and I can’t keep quiet anymore.

Everywhere I go now I must tell people about Jesus Christ.

I am praying for someone here today too who has been quiet concerning your faith, the hand of God will touch you tonight in Jesus’ Name.

In 2 King 3:11-23, the Bible says the hand of the LORD came upon Elisha and he began to prophesy.

You know, how do you know a true prophet?

A true prophet of God will tell what will happen long before they happen, they will tell you what will happen that humanly speaking, it is impossible to believe, and then that is why,

I’m prophesying to someone here tonight it is going to be well with you, it doesn’t matter what the situation may look like now it is going to be well with you.

Now when we say, if God touches a man he will experience a miracle. The question then comes and I think have shared this one with you before, what happen if God does not touch me how do I get in contact with Him.

The Bible teaches whether God touches you or you touch God the result is the same.

So because we have a huge crowd here tonight and we have several other millions listening all over the world;

Suppose God wants to touch only one person how are we going to know who He will touch?

Well, if God doesn’t touch me if I go ahead and touch Him you we get the same result, so I can be the one who will say I’m going to touch God.

How do you touch God?

In Mark 5:25-34, the Bible tells us about the woman with the issue of blood.

Jesus wasn’t looking around praying for people He was just going and there was a multitude following Him and this woman said well I am not asking Him to come and touch me, but I will go and touch Him, and the woman touched the hem of the garment of Jesus and she got her miracle immediately.

In Mathew 14:35-36, the Bible tells us that many people came together all saying all we want to do is just touch the hem of the garment of Jesus and the Bible says as many as touched Him were made whole.

So one fellow can touch Him and receive a miracle, many people can touch Him and they will all receive their miracles.

So very quickly we have to be very brief tonight because of the children, this is a special night for them.

How do I touch Jesus?

There are various ways you could touch Him.

Is By Faith: the Bible says in Hebrew 4, sorry Habakkuk 2:4, He said the Just shall live by faith.

The woman with the issue of blood touched Jesus by faith because when Jesus turned round and say who touched me, now the woman said I am the one, Jesus turned round and said to her, woman thy faith had made thee whole.

You can touch Jesus by faith tonight. In Mathew 8:5-13, the centurion touched Jesus by faith, he said to Jesus you don’t have to come to my house just speak a word he said that’s all and I know that my servant shall be made whole.

I remember telling you about a leader who wrote a letter, and said am not asking you to come and pray for me all am asking is just read this letter, I know if you read this letter I will get my miracle and then you will get the testimony and when I saw that kind of letter and I said Almighty God, glory be to Your Holy name for someone with a faith like this.

I was not surprised, then a couple of weeks later when I got another letter from the same fellow saying: I know you read my letter because I already gotten my miracle.

How many of you believe that God will solve your problem tonight? This very night? Let me hear you say amen loud and clear.

Another way of course you can touch God is BY GIVING. In Luke 21:1-4 the Bible tells us about the widow who drop two mites that was all she had. She dropped all she had in the offering box and she touched Jesus because Jesus called the disciples together and told them; look at that lady she touched me by her giving, she didn’t have much she had little but touched Jesus Christ.

In 2 Chronicle 1:6-15, Solomon touched Jesus by extraordinary giving, he gave a thousand burnt offerings in one day he touched the heavens, so that the Almighty God came down that night and paid him a visit and say; anything you want just ask.

So you can touch God by giving out of your needs or you can give generously like Solomon did. In 2 King 4 that I mentioned earlier on 2 King 4:8-17,

Thank You Father. The LORD said there is someone here tonight, He said somehow you know it, no prophet told you, but somehow you know that the plan of God for your family is a very big one, He asked me to tell you I will bring it to pass.

Psalms_84-11: For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly
Psalms_84-11: For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly

In 2 King 4:8-17, that great woman of the Shunamite touched God by persistent giving she started by giving food to the man of God and went ahead to providing a house for the man of God until God said you touch me alright now I will respond- Persistent Giving.

Jeremiah_29-11: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end
Jeremiah_29-11: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end

How else can I touch God?

By Relentless Prayer. In Mark 10:46-52, the way blind Bartimaeus was able to touch Jesus Christ was; he just kept on crying Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me, he refused to stop until God said alright go and bring him.

I’m praying for some here today that your persistent prayer over the years will get resolved tonight in Jesus’ Name.

In Mathew 15:21-28, that woman whose daughter was being tormented by the devil also penetrated through to Jesus Christ because she refused to stop crying for mercy.

The disciples said Lord has sent her away, she is disturbing us, and she kept on crying.

She said God, just have mercy on me, Jesus said I cannot give the bread of children to dogs, she kept on crying until she got her miracles.

Many at times we stop short of our breakthrough because we pray for just a little while and then we stop, no God wants you to pray until the final result would come.

And for someone here tonight that final result would be here this evening in Jesus’ Name.

Finally, how can you touch God?

By Abundant Praise. 2 Samuel 6:14-16, David was praising God, he was dancing, he was praising God like little children will do.

Even though he was a king, he was dancing, he was… I mean his praise was robust so much so that the Bible says his belly came out of his gown or dress.

And the wife looks down from the window and said look at a king dancing like an ordinary common man.

Well, he told the wife, he said, you haven’t seen anything yet the One who made me a king is the One am dancing for.

He said, and I will dance much more and if you see the way God responded in 2 Samuel 7:8-20, God said to David you will always have someone to sit on the throne because of the way you praise Me you touched Me.

So you can touch God By Faith, You Can Touch Him By Giving, You Can Touch Him By Relentless Prayer, You Can Touch Him By Abundant Praise.

Psalms_9-1: I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
Psalms_9-1: I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

I heard just a testimony this week that someone who had been sick for a long time suddenly had a vision and the Almighty God showed him a scale.

You know the kind of scale that, if you see the picture of a scale in the front of any court of justice, you will see a scale one side here and other side there.

And in that scale that he saw, one part of the scale was down to the ground loaded, the other was up in the air.

And God spoke to the fellow and said; you see that scale it represents you: one side is full of prayers the other side which should be full of praise is empty.

And God said to her; when your praise balances your prayer, you will get your healing.

And she said, is that it? She woke up, this is an extraordinary visitation from God, she said no problem LORD, I will stop praying for now and I will praise You until the praise section balances the prayer section.

For two days and two nights, she did nothing other than praise God and all of a sudden she discovered she was instantly made whole.

I’m praying for someone that, tonight your praise will balance your prayer in Jesus’ Name.

Now when God touches children they become blessed in the text that we read; Jesus said, let the children come unto Me.

The Pastor that spoke before me had already explained that unto you, forbid them not, thank God he has done that one for me too, for theirs is the kingdom of God.

I like that point that he made- the kingdom of God belongs to children.

You don’t treat them well they won’t let you come, they say the kingdom is our own and it belongs to us children.

Then finally, when these children came to Jesus, He carried them in His arms and blessed them.

Whenever Jesus touches a man or a woman or a child that fellow will be blessed.

And then, many at times the major difference between a child and an adult is that the child is innocent.

I think that the Pastor that came before me, told you that one too. There is no sin separating between them and God, so when God wants to touch them nothing stands between the hand of God and their head.

You know there is this passage in Isaiah 59:1-2 it says the Hand of the LORD is not shortened that it cannot save, neither is ear heavy, that it cannot hear and it said but your sin your iniquities have separated between you and your God that He will not hear.

In other words, it is sin that is hindering Hand of God in the life of us adults.

The reason the children get their own blessing so easily is because they have no sin.

They are innocent by the grace of God they are innocent so when God wants to touch them His Hands touches them straight away, that is why tonight you need to pray a prayer even if you are already born again you need to pray a prayer that anything that can stand between me and the blessing of God tonight the Almighty God will please wipe it away.

And then if you have not even born again, you need to come to Jesus so that the blood of Jesus Christ, will wipe away your sin and the Hand of God will be able to reach your head without any obstruction at all.

So if there is anyone here tonight and you are not yet born again and you want to surrender life to Jesus Christ, am going to count from one to fifteen because I can see that some of you are very, very far away, but you must come here before I say fifteen so that I can pray for the salvation of your soul, so that the blood can wash away any sin that can stand between you and the touch of the Almighty God.

So if you want to give your life to Jesus you better begin to come now as am counting – one, two, three, four, sin is the insulator that can prevent the Hand of God from touching your head.

Come, let the blood of Jesus wash away your sin, come and surrender your life to Him, let Him save your soul and then there will be nothing to stand between you and the Hand of God.

…five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, thank you those of you who are clapping whatever you touch will prosper, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, those of you who are on the way keep coming don’t wait, I mean make sure you come here before I finish praying.

So all of us in the front and those who are coming; talk to the Almighty God and say, please save my soul, wash away all my sin with your blood and I will serve for the rest of my life.

Please LORD anything that can stand between me and Your touch, wipe it away with Your blood tonight and I will serve You for the rest of my life.

And the rest of us, let pray that prayer for ourselves too – anything that will stand between me and Your touch tonight, any sin whatsoever any acts of disobedience my Father and my God please wipe it away with Your blood.

Those of you in front and those of you on the way, please pray and say; please save my soul, give me a new beginning, let Your blood cleans me from all my sins and I will serve You for the rest of my life, I will serve You for the rest of my life. Let’s talk to the LORD for a moment, cry unto Him for one more minute and say, LORD have mercy on me, wash me clean with the blood that You shed on Calvary.

Please don’t let anything stand between me and Your touch tonight, don’t let anything stand between me and Your touch tonight.

Everything that can be an insulator, that can hinder You from touching me my Father and my God, please let Your blood wipe it away tonight, let Your blood wipe it away tonight, thank You Father, in Jesus mighty Name we have prayed.

Saviour, I want to bless Your name one more time, thank You for the Power Mighty that is in Your blood. Am praying especially for those who have come forward to surrender their life to You tonight, save their souls in Jesus’ Name, let You blood wash away their sins in Jesus’ name, write their names in the book of life in Jesus’ Name, give them a brand new beginning in Jesus’ Name, from this moment onward each time they call on You answer them by fire in Jesus’ Name.

Father, I’m also praying for everyone here tonight, everyone crying to You that You will wash us clean from anything that can stand between us and that miracle touch of Yours; please wipe it away with Your blood in Jesus’ Name.

At the end of everything tonight, let everyone of us have real cause to glorify Your Holy name, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen. Praise the LORD.

I want to congratulate those of you who have come forward to give your life to Jesus, I want to assure that by the grace of God from now on I will be praying for you; so am going to need your names, your address and your prayer request. See some counsellors, counsellor you need to move a little faster God bless you.

They will give you some cards which you will fill very quickly and return back to them and I promise you I will be praying for you.

As soon as you have filled the form, then you can go back to your seat then we’ll wait till you have finished before we proceed any further.

While they are doing that, I think the rest of us will keep on worshiping God, singing that various songs that you can sing about the blood of Jesus Christ because there is power mighty in that blood.

Over to you, choir.

Alright, now let’s quickly write down our prayer points, we would pray for a short period tonight so we can attend to the children.

Number 1. Let’s praise God once again for the mighty blood that was shed for us. Praise Him

Number 5. Father, please touch me and activate all my spiritual potentials

Number 6. Father, please touch me and empower me to do mighty things in Your name.

Hold your neighbour and pray for your neighbour with all your heart and say Father, this child of Yours touch his/her body, soul and spirit- go ahead talk to the Almighty God, body, soul and spirit touch this your child.

Almighty God this child of yours touch him, touch her, body soul and spirit.

Every evil in the home of this Your child, chase out today, chase out right now, chase out every evil every sickness every disease every sorrow every poverty every barrenness, chase out today.

Thank You my Father, glory be to Your holy name, thank You Father, thank You Father, in Jesus mighty name we prayed.

The Almighty God will touch your bodies and every sickness every disease in your system shall be flush out tonight.

The Almighty God will touch your finances, your family will never know poverty again, the Almighty God will empower you tonight, no enemy will ever catch up with you again, the Almighty God will empower you tonight, and you will begin to win souls for His kingdom in Jesus name.

From tonight onward, because the hand of God will be on you, when you touch the sick, they shall be healed, when you command demons they shall go out, wherever you go from tonight, God will open doors unto you, and He will answer your prayer by fire.

So shall it be in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen. Let someone shout hallelujah.

Alright, I want you to please stand on your feet, now that the oil is still fresh on you, I want you to cry to the Almighty God and say Father, let the anointing of tonight make a way for me; go ahead, talk to the Almighty God. Father, let the anointing of tonight make a way for me, that anointing that you had already place on me tonight, let it make a way for me; LORD, let it make a way for me, in every facet of my life let the anointing of tonight make a way for me.

Almighty God, let the anointing of tonight make a way for me everywhere I go from now let ways be open unto me, let the anointing of tonight make a way for me Almighty God, even where there was no way before, let the anointing of tonight make a way for me, Almighty God let the anointing of tonight make a way for me, thank You Father, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus name.

Psalms_98-4: Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise .Thank You Jesus

Tonight all Your children who are here gathered, and those who are listening to us all over the world, Father, am praying that before the end of this month we will have something to dance about, that we will have something to sing about, that we will have something to shout hallelujah about.

Whatever it is that is not allowing us to praise You fully, my Father and my God destroy it tonight.

Anything that is still not allowing our testimony to be full, destroy it tonight.

My Father and my God, thank You for peace in Nigeria, thank You for peace in Nigeria, thank You for peace in Nigeria, let the peace endure in Jesus Name.

And by the time this night is over, my Father and my God let everyone here sing a new song.

Thank You my Father and my God- in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Now let someone shout a big hallelujah.

Psalms_139-14: I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Psalms_139-14: I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Shake hand with one or two people and tell them ‘you will sing a new song before the end of this month’.

And then you may please be seated.

My own text is from Act 16:25-34.
“25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.

28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.

29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,

30 and brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

32 And they spake unto him the Word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

34 And when he had bought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.”

The number one partner God is looking for is a WORSHIPPER.

In John 4:23-24, the Bible made it clear, that ‘God is Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth’.

For the fact that the Father seeketh such to worship Him: students seek for knowledge, business men seek for contracts, politicians seek for power and God seeks for worshippers.

The Almighty God, the All Sufficient God, the Maker of heaven and earth, is seeking for just one thing ‘WORSHIPPERS‘.

Just what one of my son said ‘He wants to expand His choir‘ here on earth, and whenever He finds a worshipper, He has found a partner and He responds in a mighty way.

For example,

Psalms_108-3: I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations
Psalms_108-3: I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations

In Psalm 108:1: David said ‘my heart is fixed within me, I will praise the Lord‘.

And then he went on to say in Psalm 34:1, he says ‘I will bless the Lord at all times, even in the bush looking after sheep’, and God said, ‘I will promote him and make him a king’.

If you will become a worshipper, the first thing He will do – He will visit you where you are, so that He can take you to where He wants you to be.

Paul and Silas were in prison, they were bound, they were being beaten, they were in pain, they were hungry, and they were expected to be killed the following day.

If it were some of the people that I know: they will be mourning, they will be complaining, they will be accusing God.

“God why have you done this to me? Don’t You know who I am?, I pay my tithes, I give my offering, I go to church on Sundays, I go to church during the week, everybody knows me and look at what is happening to me?”.

Not Paul and Silas.

At midnight, the Bible says ‘they began to sing’.

They began to praise the Almighty God.

The Almighty God sat down in heaven hearing from all over the world, people bombard Him with requests:

God, do this for me, God, you must do this one, why are you so slow? God, why am I not yet married? God, why is this? God, why is that?

And then all of a sudden He heard two voices singing praises to Him.

Telling Him – You are wonderful, You are kind, You are faithful, there is no one like You, You are the Almighty, You are the All Sufficient God;

And the Almighty God said wait a minute where is that coming from?

And He located the point and said it is in a prison and said ‘I will go and visit these boys, I will pay them a visit’.

There is someone here tonight the Almighty God want to pay you a visit. If you are that one, make your hallelujah to be bigger than anyone else.

When you become His partner via worship, He will pay you a visit.

Psalms_100-4: Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
Psalms_100-4: Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Some of you will remember the story of my children, who went to America on scholarship and when they got there, after first year, there was a change of Government.

The Government that gave them scholarship was overthrown; a new Government came that didn’t know them and scholarship was stopped.

In a given time, they had already given birth to set of twins and they ran out of money. And the children were hungry, everything was bad.

They had prayed and nothing happened, and the father could not tolerate the cry of the children, he picked his books to go to the library leaving the mother to cope;

And all of a sudden the mother remembers something I have said long time ago: ‘if you prayed and nothing happens, try praise ‘.

So she took her tambourine and began to sing and began to praise God;

She was hungry, the children were hungry, and there was no money anywhere but she kept on praising God,
All of a sudden there was a knock on the door.

There were group of brethren doing house-to-house preaching in the neighborhood.

They have been there since morning, they were tired, they want to go home but the leader said, just one more house.

And he came and knock the door of this couple, my daughter open the door.

The children saw a tall white man and they stopped crying for a moment, and the white man came and said have come to talk to you about Jesus Christ.

My daughter said, “Come in, come if you want to talk to me about Jesus we want to hear”.

And then after sometime my daughter said ‘I would have given you something to drink only there is nothing at all’.

And that man said, ‘what do mean that there is nothing at all, not even only a bottle of coke?’ ‘nothing at all’.

So, the man went and opened the fridge and saw that the fridge was empty;

What happen? My daughter told him.

He went outside, he went to the grocery, I mean to the grocery store and came back loaded with food, that was a Saturday, by the following Monday he got the husband a job.

And it wasn’t long after that, that they bought their first house;

By the last time I met them, they have already gotten two houses – because somebody was praising God: they got a divine visitation.

God is about to knock at the door of someone here tonight; if you are that one let Him hear your shout of hallelujah.

Paul and Silas were telling God, “Father, the reason we are not in church tonight is because somebody is keeping us in prison”

And God says “if you can’t come to church I will come to you“.

And when God arrived, the Bible tells us that, “the ground began to shake and suddenly all the yokes, all the bondage became destroyed”.

Why?

Because Psalm 114:7 says ‘whenever God arises the earth trembles‘.

And by the time the Almighty God arises with His anointing – yokes’ become destroyed according to Isaiah 10:27.

Not only that,

All of a sudden, grounds begin to shake; all of a sudden yokes begin to be destroyed,

Just like the Jailer here became confused when he woke up, the enemies of the partners of the Almighty are bound to be confused.

In 2 Chronicle 20 if you read from verse 20 to 25 (2 Chronicle 20, you can read the whole story from verse 1 to 25).

Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O
Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

It tells you the story of three kings that came against Jehoshaphat; they wanted to swallow him up and God said to Jehoshaphat through his prophet:

All I want you to do to win this battle is praise me“.

“Just be My partner, join My choir, sing praises unto Me“.

The Bible says, as the people began to sing and to praise God, God confused the enemies and the enemies destroyed themselves.

I have a feeling within me that some people are fighting some battles too big for them, and God brought you here tonight because He wants to confuse your enemies.

He wants to turn the enemies against the each other, but God is waiting to hear your shout of hallelujah.

You see, each time you praise Him, particularly when you are facing some serious issue; your enemies begin to wander what does he knows that we don’t know.

How can he be rejoicing at a time like this, how can he praise God in what he’s going through.

And when they get confused, He gives you a gap.

And they say, “Be careful we don’t know what their God is planning“.

He had planned some things before in the past, because the devil is not as dump as you think.

As a matter of fact, the Bible says the devil is wise and the devil has a good memory of what happened when the children of Israel got to the red sea.

And all of a sudden, the red sea open and the children of Israel passed through on dry land, and the enemies followed and they were drown.

From that moment onward, the devil is always cautious when he sees the children of God doing something strange.

Because on that day, he just saw Moses lifting his hand against the red sea and then the red sea parted;

So, when of a sudden he sees you standing on your feet raising your hands to heaven and shouting hallelujah, he wanders what is God about to do again.

And so when you learn to praise Him, when you learn to worship Him, when you become His partner by joining His choir, here are the blessings that will follow.

Number One. You will get divine visitation,
Number Two. You will get yokes destroyed.
Number Three. The third thing you will get is prison doors become opened. Meaning obstruction to your progress will vanish instantly.

All you need to do is think of who Adam was before he sinned, because that will give you a rough idea who God created you to be.

Because many of us think that we have already make great progress but you haven’t seen anything yet.

When you look at Genesis 2:19-20, the Bible tells us that before sin came, Adam was a Professor of Zoo, a Professor of biology.

Every animal God created He brought to Adam and he named them without going to any university.

If you think of what Adam can do, if you think of the size of the Garden of Eden, if we were to believe the Bible scholars the Garden of Eden was about the size of Lagos State.

And God put one man there and say, take care of it.

For one man to be strong enough to take care of a farm as big as a State, that man must be strong.

So, Adam was highly intelligent, Adam was extremely strong, when sin came and sin imprisoned him: that wisdom, that ability, that strength, became imprisoned.

But if you will learn to worship the Almighty God, suddenly, the prison wall that the enemy has built round you will begin to collapse; everything that had been hindering your progress will begin to dissolve.

James_4-10: Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up
James_4-10: Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up

I know of one son of mine who started work as cleaner.
In fact, before he became a cleaner, he was a ‘ danfo -driver’

And then, he decided to do cleaning .

And today, when you look at where God has brought him, there’s nobody who can believe that this boy once suffered.

And I know God has not even reached the goal where He is taking that boy.

Now, wherever you are now, it is very small compared to where God is taking you.

And what is keeping you limited is an invisible wall of prison.

And if you will do what the children of Israel did, when they came across the wall of Jericho, in Joshua 6:20, all they did was, they worshiped God.

They gave Him a shout, that caused Him to say, “Let Me go and visit them“.

My prayer is that, the Almighty God will open your eye tonight so that you can see where God is taking you.

Because, where you are now, am sure some of you are satisfied, you think you are already great – congratulations!

But I remembered what God told me, and I have always told you, am not a Prophet, am a Pastor, but I hear from God once in a while.

And whenever He says something I know it is going to come to pass – whether anybody believes it or not.

He told me long ago, He said, “Son, I will make members of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, to give new definition of greatness’.

So, if you think you are great now, you don’t know what greatness is yet.

In the name that is above every other name you will reach that level of greatness.

When we built the first auditorium near the express way, it was 100 meters by 50 meters; it was the biggest auditorium in Africa at that time.

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O
Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O

In fact, some of my children came to me, “Daddy, we don’t have problem anymore, all we need to do is build wall round it and we have the biggest church”;

I laughed.

Where are we that we are already building a wall round ourselves?

Two years later we had to expand.
A year we had to double,
A year later we had to increase.
And compared that thing with where we are now, and compare where we are to where we are going, we have not yet started.

Let me hear somebody shout hallelujah.

When you become His partner, when you join His choir, every limitation to your progress will be destroyed by your Senior Partner.

And then Number Four, you will become a testimony.

The Bible says when Paul and Silas were singing, the prisoners heard them.

And when the prisoners heard them singing, they must have taught –

What’s wrong with these crazy boys?
They don’t know where they are?”
“Maybe they have not been told that tomorrow they are going to die”.
“How can they be singing?”
How can they be praising God at a time like this?

But when all of a sudden the ground began to shake, when all of a sudden their yokes were suddenly all destroyed, when all of a sudden their prison doors where flung open, “They said wait a minute! These people are different”.

I have good news for somebody here, before the end of this month some people will say, your God is Almighty.

One of my boys who preached, I think it was the first one, he said, you can’t be a witness to God unless you have experienced His miracles.

When, in Mathew 8:1-4, when that leper was cleansed he became a witness. In Mark 5:1-20,

Thank You Almighty. The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said, I will compel the Authority to review your case.

Daddy says, there is someone here, He said, not long ago that somebody told you that you will smell pepper, the Almighty asks me to tell you that he’s the one who will smell pepper.

Hallelujah. Daddy says there is someone here tonight that you will understand, He said you used to be at the very great height but things turned downwards, He asks me to tell you, you will soon be higher than your former height.

In Mark 5:1-20, God delivered that mad man of Gadarene.

And he came to Jesus after that and said, “I want to follow you wherever you are going”.

Jesus Christ said no, no, no, go back to your people.

They knew you, they knew you are a mad man, they knew you are so crazy – crazy people see you coming they run.

Now all of a sudden, they see you sober, normal, absolutely ok, if you tell them Jesus did it, they will believe you.

I am believing God for someone here today, your life will become a testimony.

When you become His partner, when you join His choir,
Then, Number Five, you will become a blessing to many.

Every prisoner in that prison that night, they benefited from miracle God worked out for Paul and Silas.

It was Paul and Silas that the Almighty God wanted to set free, but in setting them free, the yokes of other prisoners were destroyed.

The prison doors that were shut against them, the doors were forced open.

You can become a blessing to many.

In Luke 8:1-3, when the Almighty God set Mary Magdalene free, she became a blessing to God and a blessing to humanity.

The Bible said, ‘she minister to Jesus Christ of her substance’ – meaning what?

She was financing the ministry of Jesus Christ.

She was supplying for Jesus to be able to do the work and of course in the process Jesus was able to heal the sick, was able to cast out demons, He was able to do many things.

There is a lot of work to be done and God needs resources.

And people like me, I am a Pastor, and you can’t see me running after contracts at the same time, and yet we need to keep the finances to get the ministry going and to get the work done.

So, God in His own infinite wisdom raised up Treasurers who will be financing the work;

And I want to prophesy to someone here today very, very soon you will come to me and say daddy, just tell me the budget for a year.

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O
Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O

Anyone who becomes His partner will not only be blessed, he will become a blessing.

Am sure you remember the story of one of my sons.

I have told you this story before, and probably all of you listening all over the world might not have heard it before.

He was sick, there was something in his PSA, the normal PSA is supposed to be – I think below five, zero to five were supposed to be normal.

By the time it is twenty, sometime they suspect that you might have cancer, by the time the thing is over two hundred then you begin to talk of terminal cancer;
By the time my son went to the hospital, they checked his PSA, it was reading four thousand plus.

So, the doctor could not believe he was still alive.

And in that hospital they have a room where they put hopeless cases, so they just put him there.

People who go into that room usually come out dead.

As God will have it, I was visiting that country at that time. I go to the airport I didn’t see my son among those who came to welcome me.

Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O
Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

I asked of him they said He’s in the hospital, so I went there to pray for him – and this was one of the European countries, you don’t pray for anybody unless the fellow requested you to do so.

So, I only prayed for my son, because, if you pray for somebody else they could charge you for something else.

I prayed only for my son and I left. It was a Saturday.

To cut the long story short, by Wednesday of the following week, they discharge my son completely healed.

But the bigger miracle is that everyone in the same room with him was discharged the same day.

When the Almighty God went in to heal him, the atmosphere was so charged with the power of God to heal everybody else.

I decree to someone here today, for the rest of your life, wherever you go, you will take miracles along with you.

Thank You Father, the Lord said, there is someone here tonight, or listening to me right now, that you had a dream and in that dream, you were bitten by a snake, the Lord asked me to tell you, I have killed the snake.

Number Six. The sixth thing that happens when you become His partner is that your enemies become your servant.

Because, in the text we read to you, you suddenly discover that the Jailer, after Paul and Silas have witnessed to him, he said, ‘what must I do to be saved?’

And they have told him, ‘receive the Lord Jesus Christ, believe the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved you and your household’.

He gave his life to Jesus, he was baptized.

And then he said ok, now, you have been beaten, let me wash your wounds.

You had been hungry, let me feed you.

The one who was supposed to keep them in prison now became the one taking care of them.

When you become a partner of the Most High God, all of a sudden your enemies become your servant.

Now, God has various ways of dealing with your enemies.

Various ways:

He Could Scatter Them.
Psalm 68:1-3 says, ‘let God arise and His enemies will be scattered‘.

If that is the only reason why we shout hallelujah at all, it should be enough.

You see, I told again and again, I said you have never heard me pray whether on this altar or whether on any other altar, at the beginning of any service or any convention or any congress, you have never heard me stand here to say, Father, now we are about to begin this service I bind the devil, I bind all demons.

And people have asked me why don’t you do that? That’s what many other men of God will do.
And I said there is no need to.

You bind the devil in the morning; you bind him in the afternoon. Did he get loose between morning and afternoon?

If he is that slippery, how am I sure if I bind him at the beginning of the service he will not be loose before the service is over?

But I know what to do to keep him away.

Nobody stays where you are praising his enemy, that’s why I start by saying:

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O, RCCG
Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O, RCCG

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Because when you shout hallelujah, God arises and when God arises His enemies scatter.

May your enemies be scattered tonight in Jesus’ Name.

He can scatter them.

He Can Bury Them Alive.

Like He did in Numbers 16:23-34.

He buried the enemies of Moses alive.

He Can Drown Them.

Like He did in Exodus 14:21-28, when Moses told the children of Israel the enemies you have seen tonight you will never see them again forever.

They didn’t know that what he was saying is that by the following morning the enemies will all be drowned.
Or

He Could Bomb Them

Like He did in Joshua 10:10-11, the Bible says that when the enemy came against Joshua God began to drop hail stones upon their head and broke so many heads, and those that God killed by bombing were more than those that Joshua killed by sword .

So, He Could Scatter Them, He Could Bury Them, He Could Drown Them, He Could Bomb Them;
And

He Could Paralyze Them.

Psalms_23-5: Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Psalms_23-5: Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Psalm 23:5 says ‘thou prepareth a table before me in the presence of my enemy’.

The enemies are watching as you are enjoying but they are paralyzed, nothing they could do about it.
And He went on to say in Proverb chapter 16:7

Thank You Father. The Lord says there is someone here and you are afraid of storm that seem to be gathering, Daddy asked me to tell you it will become showers of blessings.

Proverbs_16-7: When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him
Proverbs_16-7: When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him

He went on, in Proverb 16:7, he said, ‘when a man’s ways pleased God, He will cause even his enemies to be at peace with him.

When you join his choir, when you learn to praise Him, when you learn to worship Him, you just discover all of a sudden the enemies leave you alone.

And I believe there is someone here who is tired of the harassment of the enemies, if you are that one let your hallelujah be very loud.

And then finally, so that we can have some time to really praise God, because that is what we have come to do tonight.

When you join His choir, when you decide I will praise God, I will magnify His Holy Name, I will worship Him, His praise will continually be in my mouth, I will blessed the Lord at all times, my heart is fixed within me I will praise God, it doesn’t matter what is happening,
Then, Number Seven. You will laugh last.
Because if you read that Act 16,

Thank You Father. Alright this one is for me, so am saying amen to it before I tell you. Daddy says there is someone here tonight He said, I will greatly increase your movement forward and upward.

If you read Act 16:35:40, when it was morning the people who said they were going to kill Paul and Silas, send for them and said, let them go, release them.

Haa! Paul said you put me in prison, and now you are sending me away secretly, that I should go!

He said am not going until you come and beg me out.

I said, I like this brother Paul, you people said you are going to kill me, something happened overnight, you changed your mind.

You kept me in prison something happened overnight you changed your mind and you ask me to go quietly, no no no.

Come, you who brought me in, come and beg me out –
Now, that is what I called laughing last.

There is somebody here tonight, you will laugh last. I say you will laugh last.

Let me here you say it one more time – you will laugh last.

I could imagined what happened when in Daniel 3:28-30, when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were coming out of the fiery furnace,
And those who got them thrown into the fire were there watching them coming out, and the king decided to promoter them far above their enemies;

I can imagine Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego looking at those people and laughing at them.

I can imagine what happen in Daniel 6:24-28, when those people who got Daniel thrown in the den of lions, came with their families, their wives, their children and themselves.

And then they were asked to go into the den of lions and finds out what happened to the lion, and before they reach the bottom the lions finished them.

I could imagine how Daniel must have felt knowing fully well no more troubles – Victory Complete.

I believe God for someone here tonight before the end of this month your song will be victory at last.

It is a very sweet thing when you are the one laughing last, when your enemies become your servant.

It reminds me of a story, you have heard the story before some of you.

Of a girl who gets dressed for her wedding, arrived at the registry for marriage with her relatives, and the husband didn’t show up – you have heard the story before.

Pictures and photos from Pastor (Mrs) Foluke Adeboye, Pastor E A Adeboye's wife's 67th birthday celebration
Pictures and photos from Pastor (Mrs) Foluke Adeboye, Pastor E A Adeboye’s wife’s 67th birthday celebration

It happened on the day my wife and I got wedded.

Poor girl, fully dressed, as a bride waiting for the husband that didn’t come.

Waited and waited, the boy had just set her up; promised her, “I will marry you“.

Am sure the boy must be laughing somewhere, saying, “Stupid girl, she thought I was going to marry her, fool”.

The girl, of course nearly gone mad, but somehow she recovered.

And she got married to another man, and that man joined the Army.

In the main time, the boy that jilted her also joined the Army.

And then there was coup and the boy he now married became a Governor, and the boy who jilted her became the aid-decamp to her husband, so that whenever the lady had to go somewhere, the aid decamp had to open the door for her.

Now, that was what I called laughing last.

There is somebody here tonight you will laugh last.

All those who thought you are going to drown in sorrow; they will come and beg you for help.

All those who thought you will not reach your goal, will one day come and beg you for help.

God is looking for partners.

He is looking for those who will worship Him, who will praise Him, who will magnify His Holy Name.

But you can’t become one of His partners if you are still running up and down with the devil.

You can’t be one of His partners, if you are still living a life of sin.

You can’t begin to sing praises to Him when at the same time you are still fornicating, still committing adultery, still lying, still cheating, still defrauding.

If you say you want to sing to Him, He will say no no, sing to your master, the Devil.

That’s why one of the first things you need to do, if you want to become His partner is that you give your life to Jesus Christ.

It is after you have given your life to Jesus Christ, after His blood has washed away your sins, after He has given you a brand new beginning, that you can now begin to worship Him and to praise and to become a member of His choir.

So, if you are here and you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, I will count from 1 to 15 because I can see some of you very very far away.

But before I say fifteen you must be standing before me here, So that I can pray for the salvation of your soul, and then you will be qualified to become a child of the Living God.

So, I will begin to count now.

If you want give your life to Jesus, you want to say bye-bye to the life of sin; you want to swap partnership and so that Jesus Christ can become your partner, begin to come now as I count:

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen,

1-John_1-9: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness
1-John_1-9: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness

Now, those of you who have already come and those of you who are on the way – talk to the Almighty God now and say, please save my soul and I will serve You, just save my soul, forgive all my sins, wipe away all my sin with Your blood, and I will serve You, please save my soul.

And the rest of us lets stretch forth our hands and intercede for them, that the Almighty God who saved our souls will save their own souls also.

Pray for them that, God will wipe away their sins and give them a brand new beginning.

Intercede for them, pray for them, pray for them, pray for them.

James_5-16: Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
James_5-16: Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Those of you who are on the way keep coming, you are not too late yet, keep coming, and cry to the Lord as you come – just have mercy on me, save my soul, forgive all my sins and I will serve You.

I will serve You for the rest of my life, I will serve You for the rest of my life.

Say, Lord, have mercy on me, I will serve You for the rest of my life, please Lord, save my soul, forgive all my sins.

Those of you on the way, you have to hurry up a little now because am about to pray.

Thank You Father. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Saviour we just want to say thank You. Thank You for Your word, thank You for these Your people who have come forward to surrender their lives to You.

Romans_10-10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation
Romans_10-10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation

Thank You because You promised ‘whosoever will come unto You, You will in no wise cast out’, they have come to You Father, please receive them in Jesus’ Name, forgive them in Jesus’ Name; save their souls in Jesus Name; let Your blood wash away all their sins in Jesus’ Name; write their names in the Book of Life.

And Lord, please let them serve You till the very end. And from now on anytime they call on You, please answer them by fire – in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen.

Now those of you in front let me hear you shout hallelujah.

I am rejoicing with you tonight because, right now in heaven, Jesus is dancing because of you.

And I want to assure you from now on, I will be praying for you.

So am going to need your name, your address and your prayer request.

So if you turn to your left you will see a man there waving a piece of wood, follow him, he will take you to where some Pastors are waiting, they will collect the details I want and then they will bring you back very quickly.

Congratulations, you can begin to go now.

Let’s clap for Jesus as they go. Let’s clap for Jesus as they begin to go. And if you are clapping at all, clap very well, clap very well. Are you tired of clapping for Jesus?

Amen.

Maybe you don’t know the meaning of clapping, I will tell you. Amen.

That’s ok, I just want to explain it to you.

Let me explain first, then next time you are ask to clap nobody will beg you before you’ll clap very well.

‘One day the fingers were watching the birds singing and they like the beautiful music coming from the birds and they said, we too will like to sing but the more they move the more they discover that no sound was coming.

And then by accident they discover that if two of them co-operate they can produced a sound … just two finger co-operate, they can produced a sound.

And then by further experiment they discover that if one palm co-operate with one finger, it can produce a sound.

You want to try that – you lift one hand and with one finger begin to tap the palm.

And then, they discover that if the one finger becomes two, the sound becomes better; if the two fingers become three, you get better sound. If the fingers become four; if the fingers become five.

So what does it mean?

So what does it mean when we say clap? We are saying, you are saying, I will co-operate with You. I will be your partner.

Go ahead show Him that you are ready to co-operate with Almighty God.

Amen.

Ok now, while we wait for our brothers and sisters, write down the following prayer points, even though the time on the prayer will be shorter than the praise but write the following prayer points.

Number 1. Worship God intensely.

Number 2. You say Father, I will be Your partner, please visit me this month like never before.

Number 3. Father, please destroy permanently any hindrance to my serving You.

Number 4. Father, please destroy permanently any hindrance to my progress.

Number 5. Father, please let me be a testimony to Your Almightiness.

Number 6. Father, please make me a blessing to the whole world.

Number 7. Father, please let all my enemies be at peace with me from now on.

The way we are going to start our prayer tonight is that we are going to just praise God.

You will sing your own song, I will sing my own song, we combine all these various singing and it will become a mighty joyful noise to the Almighty God.

When we have done that, and I feel that God is satisfied and it is then we’ll go to the other prayer points.

Yes! If you want to come to the altar, you are welcome.
But all we want to do first and foremost is to begin to sing to God, to begin to praise Him, to begin to magnify His Holy name.

If you want to kneel down you can do so, if you want to sit down, if you want to lie down, just go ahead and begin to praise God, magnify His Holy Name.

Let Him hear you, let Him hear your voice, remember when you join His choir, you will become His partner; and all the miracles, signs, and wonders that we mentioned will become available to you.

Let’s begin to praise Him, let’s begin to sing unto Him, let’s begin to magnify His Holy Name.

You can sing, you can dance, you can clap, just magnify His Holy Name; let’s do that one, let’s praise Him.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

This very month, the Almighty God will visit you. Anything that is not allowing you to serve God, God will destroy permanently. Every obstruction to your progress, every obstruction to your success, every obstruction to your joy, the Almighty God will destroy it tonight.

This very month, you will become a testimony: A testimony to God’s power; a testimony to God’s grace; a testimony to God’s faithfulness.

Before the end of this month your enemies will say your God is the Almighty. You will become a blessing to your family, you will become a blessing to your church, you will become a blessing to your country; God will make you a blessing to the whole world, and you will be a blessing to the whole world.

From tonight onward, your enemies will leave you alone.

You will laugh last.

You will sing a new song: a new song of victory, a new song of triumph, a new song of breakthrough, a new song of victory at last.

It shall be well with you. And you too you will serve the Lord.

Before the end of this month, you will have something to sing about;

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

If you receive that shout a big hallelujah to the Almighty God.

God bless you, you may go back to your seat.

FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

Galatians_5-22: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith
Galatians_5-22: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith

Text: Galatians 5:13-26:
13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

John_15-16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you
John_15-16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you

Colossians 3:25

Genesis 9:6
Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

Islamic State Killer Jihadi John on the run

The Islamic State killer Jihadi John has reportedly fled the extremist group.

Sources say he could end up meeting the same fate as his victims because Isis no longer have any use for him.

Mohammed Emwazi – nicknamed Jihadi John
School photo of Mohammed Emwazi who is reported to be the ISIS murderer acting under the pseudonym “Jihadi John”. See SWNS story SWJIHADI; The FBI announced in September 2014 that it was aware of Jihadi John’s real identity, although it was not publicly released until February 2015. British Prime Minister David Cameron has ordered MI5, MI6, and GCHQ to track and capture Jihadi John. The U.S. Senate has approved a $10 million bounty for information leading to his capture. On 26 February 2015, the BBC and The Washington Post identified Jihadi John as Mohammed Emwazi, a 27-year-old British man from a middle-class family who grew up in West London and graduated from theUniversity of Westminster with a computer programming degree.

Mohammed Emwazi – nicknamed Jihadi John – is believed to have left the terror group and gone on the run in Syria.

The 26-year-old’s true identity was revealed earlier this year.

He became notorious after beheading innocent journalists and aid workers Stephen Sotloff, James Foley, David Haines, Alan Henning and Peter Kassig.

Emwazi – who grew up and went to school in London – is said to be concerned by the publicity, fearing he can now be tracked down by British and US Special Forces in Iraq and Syria.

Because he’s now recognisable, it’s believed Isis no longer consider him a valuable asset.

Apparently, the terrorist organisation would drop him ‘like a stone or worse if they feel he is no longer any use to them.’

The source told Express.co.uk: ‘So it is possible he will end up suffering the same fate as his victims.’

If you are lucky enough to find all these characteristics in just one friend, you have found yourself a best friend for life

If you are lucky enough to find all these characteristics in just one friend, you have found yourself a best friend for life

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

Making the important choice of friends certainly reflects who you are and what you love. Due to this, a lot of people make sure they make the right decision since, often times, you make friends for life

Ephesians_5-2-2: And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour
Ephesians_5-2-2: And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour

Here are the kind of friends everybody should have as they would give you the feeling of having a wholesome life.

  1. The fun friend: Now this is a must-have. The fun friend is the fun-loving buddy that can spot a good time and make sure you are always smiling. They are all about enjoying life and they remind you to find the joy in everything.
  2. The optimistic friend: This kind of friend makes sure you do not wallow in negativity. They remind you of the bright side of things and they always encourage you to see the silver lining in any bad situation.

  3. The successful friend: We all want to be successful in life and since our friends have a big role in making us who we are, it is important that we make friends with successful people. They are full of advice and inspiration. You feel you can achieve more simply because you acquaint yourself with success.

4. The supportive friend: We would find it difficult to get very far in life if we do not have someone in our life who supports and believe in us. The supportive friend gets behind your dreams and ambitions without question. They believe in you.

  1. The brutally honest friend: If you are surrounded by a bunch of people who only tell you what you want you hear, this would lead to problems. The honest friend tells it like it is, no matter how hurtful the truth is. Be it your fashion choices or addiction issues, this friend does not sugarcoat what he/she thinks as they know that their advice is mainly because they want to make you better.

If you are lucky enough to find all these characteristics in just one friend, then you have found yourself a best friend for life.

Amen. Let some shout hallelujah!

Well, shake hand with two or three people and tell them tonight is my night you know; and then you may please be seated.

Tonight we want to talk on ‘FULFILLING DESTINY‘.

We want to open our Bibles to Genesis 50 we would be reading from verse 15 to 21. Genesis 50: 15-21. And while you are opening your Bibles, I think we should give a round of applause to the choir, they did very well tonight.

That was beautiful.

And then, another round of applause for the Preacher who preached before me – you did an excellent job.

Thank You Father.

Genesis chapter 50 readings from verse 15 to 21. Less I forget, I promised your children in Europe, they just had their own convention where forty seven nations gathered together and they send their greetings. They told me to me to greet you and I said I will do so, I’ve fulfilled my promise.

Luke_6-37: Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven
Luke_6-37: Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven

Genesis 50:15-21.
15. And when Joseph’s brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him.

  1. And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, thy father did command before he died, saying,
  2. So shall ye say unto Joseph, forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake into him.
  3. And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, behold, we be thy servants.
  4. And Joseph said unto them, fear not: for am I in the place of God?
    20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
  5. Now therefore fear ye not; I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly into them.”

God is the Master builder

He is not only build houses as we read in Exodus 1:21, the Bible tells us that because the mid-wife fear God; He built houses for them.

God not only build houses He builds cities.

Hebrew 11:10 tells us that Abraham was looking for a city whose maker and builder is God.

He builds cities

Proverbs_14-34: Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people
Proverbs_14-34: Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people

But He specializes in building people, He specializes in building people, 1 Corinthians 3:9, it says you are God buildings.

Like any master builder He builds according to plan, you will never find a good builder, building without a plan.

As a matter of fact, God in not only a Master Builder He is a master architect.

He builds according to plan, and am appealing to the engineers please let everybody hear me tonight because this night would probably the most important Holy Ghost service you ever attended,

Because I am believing God that beginning from today, you we begin to fulfill your destiny.

Am not a medical doctor but I read in a journal several years ago that when a woman conceives everything that, that child to be like – tall, short, dark, light, thin, fat, is settled within 72 hours form the moment of conception within 72 hours every detail is already out.

Ephesians 1:3-6 goes far far beyond that, Ephesians 1:3-6 says even before the foundations of the world, God has already chosen those of you who are here tonight; chosen before the foundation of the earth.

In order words, before He began to say let there be light, let there be fish, etcetera etcetera, He had settled your case.

You are not here by accident it was already in the plan of the Almighty God.

Paul the Apostle said in Galatians 1:5, He says God has chosen him from his mother’s womb.

In Luke 1:13-15 it is already settled before John the baptize was born that He shall be great, the prophecy came that He shall be great.

So when we talk of the Destiny we are talking about the plan of God concerning your life and it has been settled before you were born.

So that destiny earns its origin in the sovereignty of God. The Bibles says in Psalm 115:3, it said our God is in the heaven, He does has He pleases.

He’s the original Majesty, He does as He please nobody can query Him.

In Romans 9:15-16, He stated clearly in His word I will be merciful unto whom I will be merciful, I will show compassion unto whom I will show compassion.

Thank God He has shown mercy to me, I don’t know about you. that’s why Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:9-10, he said I am what I am by the grace of God.

Whatever you are today, it is by the grace of God and by the grace of God alone.

Maybe two passages in the Bible would clarify this- Psalm 33:8-11 tells us certain things clearly:

Number one it says when God speaks it is done. It said let the whole earth fear the Lord, let all the people of whole world stand in awe of Him, why? Because He spake and it is done.

Number two from that passage, it says He makes the devices of the people of none effect in order words whatever the enemies may be trying to block your destiny God has the power to reduce all their power to nothing.

Number three, it says the counsel of the Lord stands forever, in order words what He has decided to do is a matter that is settled forever. Another Bible passage that would lay a foundation concerning destiny is found in Isaiah 46:9-10, Number one it says God is God and there is none like Him.

It said I am God alone and there is no one like Me; it’s a settled matter and you need to understand that.

Because of this I can declare the end from the beginning that’s one thing that makes God special.

He knows the end from the beginning because the end and the beginning meet in Him.

Revelation 1:8, Jesus Christ said I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning as well as the Ending.

The two of them gather together in Him.

He says, He declares from ancient times, the things that are not yet done, in order words, God can tell you thousands of years before it happens everything that is going to happen.

And then
Number four, His counsel stands. That is it again , whatever He says He will do that’s it that’s done.

And then
Number Five, He said He will do all His pleasures. If He says this is what is pleasing unto Me, then that’s done; He will do all His pleasures.

So when we talk about destiny we are talking about the plan of God concerning your life and He made that plan before your father met your mother.

The reason your father and your mother produce you is because they are the only two people in the plan of God that can produce you.

I was telling some people in another nation who have always complaining that they don’t know their dads, I said you don’t have to worry, the assignment given to your father was to meet your mother, he finished his assignment and he disappeared.

Thank God for those of us who have fathers, but if you don’t have any father you don’t have to worry yourself about it at all, that may not affect your destiny.

Now God usually gives a hint as to whats your destiny- He would give you a hint; He would tell you what is His plan for your life just a little glimpse of it – a glimpse.

Before delays or diversion begins to come, He would give you a hint; and if He has never given you a hint you will get a hint tonight in Jesus’ Name.

And I will give you some example

First, Joseph. In Genesis 37:5-11, Joseph had two strange dreams: he had the first dream he narrated it to his brothers and without him saying a word the brothers interpreted the dream accurately.

They said what are you saying; are you saying we are going to bow down before you?

The boy said all I had is a dream.

Then he had the second dream and this second dream was even bigger. Not his brothers alone, now even the father also was alarmed.

That was a hint given to that boy. Of course then the enemy saw that the dream will not come to pass, in Genesis 37:18-28, the brothers said here comes the Dreamer, let’s kill and see what will become of his dreams.

They wanted to snuff out the dreamer so that the dreams will not come to pass.

But you know the rest of the story, they were just wasting their time, they sold him into slavery when he got into slavery he became slave in the house of Potiphar.

The Almighty God who already promised what He was going to do was there with him and as he began to prosper over there, one day the wife of Potiphar said if you don’t come a lay with me there will be problems and you know the rest of the story.’

He refused to compromise and he ended up in prison and here is somebody God told “you are going to be a Ruler, your brothers are going to bow down before you”

And he found himself in prison; because there is someone also coming to prison who is a link to the journey of his destiny.

That’s why God sent him to prison:

Wherever you are today is not by accident you are going to meet someone that is going to help your destiny.

The rest is history.

Like the text I read to you the same brothers came, fell down at his feet and said sir we are your servant and the Bible says Joseph wept.

Why was he weeping?

He remembered what God told him.

A day is coming where somebody here is going to weep for joy.

Moses is another example. The first thing concerning the destiny of Moses came in Genesis 15:13-14.

Hundred of years before Moses was born, God spoke to Abraham, He said I know today you are still barren but out of you will come a Nation.

And this Nation will be in a foreign nation for four hundred years, and after four hundred years I will bring them out to serve Me.

And they won’t come out empty handed, that was the first hint.

And then of course you know the rest of the story the children of Israel landed in Egypt.

Years passed, and then all of a sudden the devil knew and have been counting the number of years, that very soon, the Deliverer of Israel was going to be born.

And he spoke to the new Pharaoh and begin to kill all the boys that are born in Egypt.

The death was waiting for Moses but the Almighty God, the One who fulfills destiny, kept death away;

The reason you are still alive today is because God has a purpose for your life and that purpose will be fulfilled in Jesus’ Name.

But you know the rest of the story, in Exodus 3:1-12, at the back of the desert where Moses had gone to hid after he had killed an Egyptian, after he discovered that delivery the children of Israel is not going to be by human strength, God met him there and said your destiny is about to fulfill;

So, I have good news for everyone here tonight, no matter how old you are God will fulfill your destiny.

Let me give you another example, David in 1 Samuel 16, if you read it from verse 1 to 13, the Almighty God spoke to Samuel and said go to the house of Jesse I have chosen one of his sons to be my king.

You know the rest of the story: Samuel came, Jesse brought out seven boys and David was kept out of the show and God refuse the seven and say the one I have in mind is in the bush.

My brother and sisters anywhere you are destiny will locate you.

It might be in the back side of a desert, it might be in the bush looking after animals, and it might be an office when your time comes destiny will locate you.

So they brought in David, and when he was being anointed king, there was another king on the throne.

David was about seventeen years old when the oil first landed on his head but he didn’t sit on the throne until thirteen years later, all he got was a glimpse of what was coming.

What happen after that?

Oh the devil tried to kill him, he sent a lion the lion died, he sent a bear the bear died, he sent Goliath, Goliath died.

That is while I can assure you anyone who want to truncate your destiny between now and the end of this month they shall be no more.

Several times king Saul as soon as he realized this is the boy who will succeed him, several times, at least three times, he threw a javelin at David but three times the javelin missed.

But you need to understand king Saul was very good man with the javelin but to miss David first time, second time, third time, is simply that the Almighty God was the One, who can fulfill destiny, that was at work.

And I am prophesying to someone here this evening the Javelin of king Saul will miss David tonight.

When King Saul was no longer around David find himself on the throne and the Bible said he reigned for forty years.

Let me take another example and I will take Apostle Paul. In Galatians 1:13-17, Apostle said clearly that he had been chosen from his mother womb but then this man who was chosen to be an Evangelist for Jesus Christ, an Apostle for Jesus Christ, is the one who was chairman the day they were stoning Stephen.

Acts 7:57-59, when they were killing Stephen he was the one supervising the operation because the devil wanted to divert him from his goal but ultimately in Acts 9 if you read it from verse 1 to 30, the One who can bring destiny to pass arrested him on the way, so he was able to say that the one who was the chief of the sinner, became a chief Apostle because that was his destiny.

Whatever may be the diversions that had already taken place concerning your destiny in the Name that is above every other name that destiny shall be fulfill in Jesus’ Name.

And I can give several examples. Probably I will give you more as you go along, but am just laying foundation so that you will know that what we are discussing is very serious issue and I will want you to be absolutely sure of what destiny is and how to reach there.

We need to know that destiny can be truncated, destiny can be truncated. What exactly do we mean by that? We’ve already said that the enemy may try, the enemy will fail because what God has spoken and it is done.

It is God who can fulfill destiny, the One who have the plan, He’s the Master builder but if He discovers what the person is trying to build is not yielding to Him after a lot of persuasion He may tear the plan .

It is my prayer that the plan of God for your life will not be destroyed by your actions.

Let’s take one or three examples:

Samson. In Judges 13:1-5. Samson, a hint concerning the future of Samson was given; the Lord sent an angel to tell his mother, the mother was barren, the angel came and told her you are going to have a son, he’s going to be powerful; he’s going to be filled with Holy Spirit even from the womb.

Before he was born at all the power of God was going to be mighty in him.

But then when Samson was born the Spirit of God moved him just like the Almighty God has planned; Samson began to live as he can live without God: every law, every rule that the Almighty God said he must obey, he broke them all.

As someone who is peculiar to God, he was not supposed to touch dead body of any type, but he kill a lion and saw honey in the lion he picked the honey for the carcass of a dead animal and he began to eat, it didn’t bothered him.

He was not supposed to marry among the strangers, he said who was talking I as the powerful man am the anointed of God, shut your mouth, that is the woman I want to marry, he tried to marry the woman he failed, but he kept on going and going and going doing everything contrary to the will of God including going into the house a harlot.

You can read the rest of the story Judges 16 and read the story from verse 1 to 30. Special man of God, anointed man of God, fills with the Holy Spirit from the womb, he was going in and out from harlot house, and he was doing everything he wanted to do.

Finally God said okay enough is enough and God withdrew, and he died a young man.

Am praying particularly for all the youth here today whatever you will do that will cause the Almighty God to tear your destiny I pray you will no longer do it.

What about king Saul, he was an ordinary farmer’s boy but God chose him to be the first king of Israel. He got a hint that he was going to be a king in 1 Samuel 9:25-27; and very soon in 1 Samuel 10:1-9, he began to manifest all the signs that the Spirit of the Almighty God was already upon him – I mean he woke up a farmer’s boy before the evening he was prophesying like any prophet and the he began to reign, he became very popular among the people and then in an attempt to please the people rather than please God; his kingdom was taken away from him.

1 Samuel 15:1-29, the Almighty God sent him on an errand instead of obeying God completely he decided to obey the people and God said fine Am the One who arrange the original plan, now that you are not complying with my instructions I tear the plan.

I pray for every one of you listening to me tonight, what you will do that will cause God to tear up His plan for your life, will not be done by you.

Not only that destiny can be truncated, destiny can be totally reversed. Not just truncated but totally reversed.

In the case of Samson we said his destiny was truncated, even in his death God still use his death to fulfill God’s purpose, only he was not there to enjoy the fruit of it; but in some cases God will reverse the destiny completely.

1 Samuel 2:30, God said to Eli indeed you and your father’s house shall stand before me forever, God said that was my plan: you, your children, great grandchildren for generation to come would be my priest, but God said now I say be it far from me – in order words the original plan, I erased it.

In fact, He said later on, listen those who do not die young in your family will be begging priest for bread: they were supposed to be priest but now they will be coming to the priest to say please can we have some food to eat.

I pray with everything that in me, in the Name that is above every other name your destiny will not be reversed for evil.

God said there is someone here tonight, He said you should relax the mountains are already crumbling.

And says there is someone here tonight, He said like Joseph in whatever situation you find yourself you shall have dominion.

Another example of destiny being completely reversed – I have told the story before but some of you might not be here then, is about a man called Ephraim.

In Genesis 48:8-20, Joseph brought his children to his father Israel for blessing, Joseph had two sons in Egypt: the first was Manasseh and the second born was Ephraim, he brought these two sons to his father so he could bless them, and because Manasseh was the first born, he place him where the right hand of his father will land and Ephraim where the left hand will land.

Now, at that time, Israel was going kind of blind, he was old, so he couldn’t see clearly, when it was time for him to bless this two boys he cross his hands, and place the right hand on the head of the second born and left hand on the head of the first born.

And he blessed the two of them with his hand crossed.

Within few years, according to Deuteronomy 33:17, the younger had prospered more than the elder ten times.

For every one thousand that the first born had, the second born had ten thousand – he had prospered ten times more than the brother because of the hand that was crossed.

Because that was the destiny that God had for Ephraim.

But then as soon as Ephraim prospered, he began to ignore God.

God will send him on an errand and he will refuse to go.

“Ephraim, we’re all going to battle, there was war in a nation, come let’s go and fight”

Ephraim will say who will look after my sheep? Who will look after my wealth?

All of you can go, leave me alone, am a rich man.

After some times, he even began to worship idols, God began to send message upon message to him:

Eeeh, “Leave me alone am enjoying myself“.

I pray for somebody here today, the kind of position that you will reach and you will forget God, May you never reach that position.

After some time in Hosea 4:17, God said okay have heard enough, he said Ephraim has joined himself to idols, leave him alone.

‘Am the One who wrote the plan for his life, he has forgotten Me, leave him alone, no problem, and then in Hosea 5:9, God now said, I have written a new plan, He said Ephraim shall be desolate, I have prosper him, I have made him great he forgot Me he joined himself to idol .

Because they said, destiny Changer changes my destiny today.

How do you know how the original destiny is?

If it is evil, may it be change in Jesus’ Name.

If it is good, may it be fulfill in Jesus’ Name.

Now destiny can be reversed,

In order words, the original plan may be bad and it will be reverse so that it will become good.

I will give you one example because of time, again I have spoken about this before to those of you who are older, tis about a certain man called Levi…

Thank You Father, amen. The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said from tonight onward you will be on a fast lane to your destiny.

I believe God is talking to me tonight, amen and amen, because the Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said, from today onward, all you will be saying is, things are getting better and better.

There was this young man called Levi, in Genesis 49:1-7 that’s where you find the story.

He had something years before that offended the father previously and the father waited until the day he was going to died.

The father laid on his bed and call all his children together, and said, “come let me tell you what’s going to happen to you in the future”

And he began to tell them one by one, one by one concerning their destinies.

When he came to Levi, he said Levi, because of your violent temper, he said “you will become nothing”.

He said, “you will be scattered throughout the land“, as soon as he finished, the father died so there is not even room to say, “sorry daddy”, it was sealed but the God in heaven decided I will reverse that destiny.

If there is anyone here to tonight whose destiny have been cursed, in the Name that is above every other name I cancel the curse.

Galatians_3-13-1: Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree
Galatians_3-13-1: Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree

But God didn’t just reverse the destiny of Levi, it was because something happened.

In Exodus 32 you can just read the entire story but verse 25 and 26 would highlight the point; Exodus 32:25:26.

Moses had gone upon to the mountain to collects the Ten Commandments, while he was gone the children of Israel said, “He had gone for too long, we don’t know what happen to him, maybe he had died on the mountain we don’t know”

They turned to Aaron and said, “Make us a god, in any case, we need the god we can see

So Aaron said, “Fine, give me your jewellery and I will make you a god“.

They gave him all their gold and he created a calf.

By the time Moses was returning form the mountain the people were singing and dancing worshiping the idol: dancing naked.

When Moses came and saw what was happening, he was furious but he knew the children of Israel.

In the past they have threatened to stone him over ordinary things, and yet he knew they must be punished for what they have done and he knew he couldn’t do it alone.

So he stool by the gate, lifted up his voice and said “anyone who is on the side of the Lord should come over to me”

And the Bible said Levi and all his children crossed over to the side of Moses.

So God looked down from heaven and said “Levi, you all are supposed to become nothing you say you’re on my side”

God said, “in that case, I Am on your side

That original destiny, that original plan made concerning your life I wipe it out I write a brand new one.

So God spoke to Moses in Numbers 3:11-13, He said to Moses, “bring Levi near Me, I have chosen Levi to become My first born”.

Romans_1-16: For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek
Romans_1-16: For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek

The one that the father says he will become nothing, God says, he will be my first born, he will be special.

Because even though God is sovereign, even though God does as he pleases in heaven, God is not arbitrary, He said in Proverbs 8:17, He said “I love those who love Me, those who seek Me early shall found me.”

In James 4:7, the bible stated clearly, if you draw near God, He will draw near to you. If you are on the side of the Lord, He will be on your side also.

Do I hear somebody say Amen?

Now, how do I know what is in my destiny?

Many of us without knowing it, God has spoken to us in the past. He has spoken to us in parables, He has spoken in prophesies, at that time, maybe we didn’t realized it, but He has spoken, He has given it.

And I can use myself as an example, have shared it with some of the older ones: several years ago as a little boy going to school, in those days when you are going to school, primary school for the first time, they make a slate for you, those who are old will know what is called a slate, it gets a little something.

Today now you are using the computer, the iPad; our own iPad then was cut from wood, and dyed black and give you a chalk so you can write ABC on your slate.

How many of you know what am talking about? and those of you who are old to know let me hear you shout hallelujah .

So one day I was coming back from school, my slate on my head all my face covered with chalk and an elderly man saw me and said, “Senior Academician

I didn’t know what he was talking about: with the plate on my head with chalk on my face but that old man saw in that little boy somebody who will get a PhD.

He saw it, he didn’t know how to say it but he painted it that way.

One other day, I was coming from school and I met another old man who looked at me and said ‘Baba Eko‘,

Ha ha, and in those days in Ife wara , when you talk of Lagos, it is almost like you are talking about Jerusalem.

We know that there is a place somewhere, because even in those days to go to even Ilesha or Ife those are the two nearer towns, is like going on a pilgrimage.

And he called me “Baba Eko

I never knew I could end up in Lagos, but that man saw it.

Another hint, I think I have shared this one before because am telling you this, so that you can think back, there might be some hints that God has already given you concerning your destiny:

I think it was 1951, at that time, the Anglican Bishop based in Ibadan, what used to be called Oyo Province, came to visit the little Anglican church in Ife- wara .

And we in St. Stephen primary school lined the route to welcome him, the local hunters didn’t go to the farm, they were shooting into the air giving him gun salutes.

He came in a brand new black car.

And you need to understand in 1951, in Ife- wara , there were only two lorries that came to town in a day; one was “Bedford” lorry and the other one was “Austin lorry”

And we can tell which one is coming by the noise they make.

Some of you don’t know what is an Austin or Bedford lorry, that’s okay,

And so, he came in a brand new car, I have never seen a car before.

He was dressed in a bishop dress, all the beautiful things, the red, everything beautiful.

And when he was coming out of the car, he was wearing a pair of black shoes, polished and shining.

Whether you believe it or not, there were only five people in the village that had shoes, only five.

And the head of the primary school was one, his own shoes were tennis shoes, my mouth fell open. I have never seen anything so beautiful – the car, the dress, and the shoes;

And then, when he was about to leave, everybody began to give him gifts: the farmers brought yams, some people brought chicken, some people brought eggs, I just open my mouth wide.

When I got home that day, I told my mother, “I am going to be a bishop“.

And it was 1951; of course years passed, I left home, I went to secondary school, secondary school to university, I left church for years I didn’t enter into any church at all.

And then, one day I got born again, one day I became general overseer, one day I decided to visit our little parish in Ife- wara .

And because my people wanted to welcome me home, the school children lined the route, the hunters didn’t go to the farm, they were firing guns to welcome me home.

I went in a brand new black car, I was wearing black shoes well-polished.

As I entered the town, and I saw the children lining up, singing and the guns firing, I remembered 1951, I remembered thirty years before that I said I was going to be a Bishop.

I prophesy to someone here today that dream that God gave you years ago shall be fulfilled now in Jesus’ Name.

But now specifically, according to the word of God, what are the things that I know, that I know, that I know, are in your destiny?

If you are a true child of God, the following things among others are in your destiny.

Number one. Healing, 1 Peter 2:24, says by His stripes you were healed. More than two thousand years ago your healing has been settled. And if you would receive it, nobody will leave here with any sickness in Jesus ‘Name.

Number two. In your destiny, is divine health, Exodus 15:26 stated clearly if you will obey God you will not even know sickness at all. It is possible my brothers and sisters never to know sickness again till you see Jesus Christ, and that will be you portion in Jesus’ Name.

Number three. Deliverance is in your destiny. John chapter 8 verse 32 stated clearly, you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. If you know Jesus Who is the Truth and you have surrendered your life to Him; every force holding you captive must let you go by force.

Number four. In your destiny is Protection. Psalm 91:5-8, the Almighty God made a promise years ago and got David to write it down for you that a thousand may fall by your left, ten thousand may fall by your right it will not come near you.

Psalms_23-5: Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Psalms_23-5: Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Number five. Security is in your destiny. Psalm 23:5, it says “thou prepareth a table before me in the presence of my enemies”. In order words, the Almighty God had decreed it long ago that irrespective of how many enemies you may have, your joy is in abundance.

Number six. Anointing is in your destiny, the same Psalm 23 verse 5, says thou anointed my head with oil my cup runneth over. Anointing is not just reserve for special people; it’s in your destiny also.

Psalms_91-11: For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
Psalms_91-11: For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

And then
Number seven. Long life is in your destiny. It is not in the plan of God for you to die young or to die before fulfilling your days. In Psalm 91:16, God said with long life will I satisfy him. You are going to live long. How long you want to live is actually left to you.

I know some of you want to live for a long time to come; in my own case I have a rough idea of how long I want to be around.

I have told the story of some people praying for me when I was seventy:

Daddy you will live to be eighty“, I said amen, “you will live to be ninety“, I said amen, “you will live to be hundred“, I didn’t answer them.

One fellow said “you will live to be one hundred and twenty years‘ I said ha, what will God say I have done.

I have cut a glimpse of heaven; I don’t want to stay in this wretched world for too long. One fellow really got to be excited and said “you will live to be one hundred and forty years” I said na lie.

But with long life He will satisfy, long life is in your destiny.

Number eight. Honour is in your destiny. Psalm 91:15, He said I will honour you, that’s what God promised, it is there.

Number nine. Joy is in your destiny. Psalm 16:11, says in the presence of God there is fullness of joy.

That is why I am decreeing to somebody here tonight, from this day onward you shall wipe no more.

John_14-27: Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid
John_14-27: Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid

Number ten. Peace is in your destiny. John 14:27, Jesus said more than two thousand years ago, He said peace I give unto you: peace.

Number eleven. Abundance is in your destiny. Deuteronomy 28:11-12, the Bible promised long, long ago, that God will so bless you, you will be lending to nations – it is there in your destiny.

Number twelve. Promotion is in your destiny. Deuteronomy 28:13, the Almighty God said, you shall be head you shall not be tail , Almighty said you shall be above only you will never be beneath – promotion is in your destiny.

John_15-7: If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
John_15-7: If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Number thirteen. Fruitfulness is in your destiny. John 15:5, He says if you abide in Me and my word abide in you, you will bring forth much fruit.

John_15-16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you
John_15-16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you

That’s why I can boldly declare that from now on fruitless effort would end in your life. That’s number thirteen.

John_14-1: Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me
John_14-1: Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me

Number fourteen. Certainly HEAVEN is in your destiny. In John 14:1-3, Jesus Christ said clearly “believe thou in Me let not your heart be troubled

He said, “in My father’s house there are many mansions, if it were not so I would have to you”. He said, “Am going to prepare a place for you; there is a place prepare for you in heaven. And He said, “When I finished prepare your place I will come for you again”. Heaven is in your destiny.

That’s while I decree in the Name that’s above every other name all of you who have decided to make Jesus Christ your Lord you will not end up in hell.

Is all in your destiny.

That brings us to the crucial part. What must I do to fulfill my destiny?

Ha, thank You Father. The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said a day is coming when you tell people that you used to be poor they will not believe you.

Thank You Lord. The Lord said there is a family here tonight, He ask me to encourage you, He said, that fellow behaving like Saul of Tarsus is your family is going to end up an Apostle of Jesus Christ.

What must I do to fulfill my destiny? Very simple. Find out what those who fulfilled their destiny did and do it.

And find out what those who did not fulfill their destiny did and avoid it; very simple.

Those who fulfill their destinies find out what they did, follow their example; those whose destinies were either truncated or reversed, observe them, and avoid their mistakes. And let me pick some of them for you;

Let’s start with Joseph. Genesis 39:7-12, when the wife of Potiphar said to him ” sir you are already great in this family everything is under your control, all I want you to is lie with me.

Joseph said one thing that you must never forget, he said, “How can I do this thing and sin against God”.

“I know Who gave me the vision of what I will become; I cannot afford to offend Him”

My brothers and sisters the reason I also cry, “be holy be holy be holy” is because I know that if only you will not offend God, it doesn’t matter what anybody may try, you will fulfill your destiny.

That’s while in 2 Timothy 2:22, the Bible says flee youthful lust; and again I hope the youth are listening to me, the Bible says you are to run from all the lust of youth, you see others doing evil don’t join them so that you can reach your goals

Joseph fled.

The woman said, “By force, you must lie with me“, he fled. Flee from sin.

Example two. Moses. The plan of the Almighty God for Moses is that he will lead the children of Israel into the promise land.

He never made it because something happened in Numbers 20:1-12, the people annoyed him and they’ve been annoying for forty years.

He has being tolerating them, then on this occasion he lost his temper.

God asked him to speak to the Rock, he stroke the Rock twice: water still came out for the people to drink but God now said to Moses, ” come let Me show the land, look at it from afar off because you will not get there.

Moses didn’t make it to the promise land because he lost his temper – watch your temper.

People who want to destroy your destiny will try their hardest to cause you to be angry, refuse to be angry – watch your temper.

And I will tell you a story very quickly. Several years ago, we started what we used to call Christ the Redeemer Congress, today now we call it Holy Ghost Congress.

And we were moving it from town to town, we started in Ilesha then we went to Ilorin and then we were going to go to Ondo and the choir had been practicing, the choir at the headquarters they’ve been practicing the song that they will sing at the congress and I think it was going to be during Easter period.

The night before we were to leave for the congress some people spoke to my father in the Lord that “why should the headquarters be empty during the period of the Congress?”

“He should not allow all the choir to go”.

And so my father in the Lord called me, he said, “son, I have been advised that we should leave some choir members behind to sing at the headquarters on Easter Sunday so only half of the choir will go with you”.

Ha, all these people had been practicing, Baba, you yourself are going with us to Ondo, how do I face these people?

Which of them will I say you shouldn’t go? And something called anger began to well up in me against those people who had gone to advise my father in the Lord in this manner.

Suddenly I heard a voice of God;

I pray for someone here today anytime destiny destroyer come near you God will speak to you.

I heard God speak to me loud and clear and said, “Son, don’t say a word, don’t say a word”

Well, since he’s my Commander-in-chief, I just said thank you sir to my daddy and turned back.

The choir, they were looking at me wandering aren’t you going to intervene? aren’t you going to do something?

But I have already heard from heaven, “don’t say a word”

If I began to speak I we say the wrong thing, so I went to my car and I drove to Ondo

The following day the congress was to begin I was already there.

The stage was set everything was ready and then, somebody came running in, “sir, in those days everybody is brother or sister, bro, bro, something has happened”,

What was it?

There was a Volkswagen car coming from Lagos, if I can remember, I think about nine people was in that Car jam packed , because everybody wanted to come to the congress.

Because those who didn’t have transportation money, they lap themselves in the Volkswagen car. At the very junction leading into the venue there was an accident: a vehicle hit the Volkswagen from behind another one from the front and crushed it with nine people inside.

Eight of them members of my family and by the special grace of God only one person had an injury.

Light injury that require no hospital treatment at all.

When I heard the news, God spoke to me and said, “son, if you have lost your temper yesterday all nine would have been dead and that would have been the end of Congress.

Anything that will destroy your destiny, the Almighty God will divert it from you.

Watch you your temper. Anyone who is going to grow must learn to control his temper.

Let me take the example of Eli. What happened that cause Eli to miss out, that cause his destiny to be reversed? 1 Samuel 2:30, God said, “those who honour Me I will honor and those who despise Me, I will lightly esteem”

Honour God so that He may honour you.

Honour Him that you may fulfill your destiny. When we read Proverb 3:9-10, where it says, “You are to honour God with your first fruit”.

Many of us think is a light matter: God says those who honour Me I will honour.

Couple of years ago, Almighty God said to me “son look at Pastors all over the word, look at Pastors from history up till this moment, majority of their sons never follow in their footsteps, and He said you know why, because their fathers do not honour Me – they don’t give me their first fruit.

My prayer for every one of you here tonight is that your children will be greater than you

Honour God. You destiny is far, far crucial than money, is far far more crucial.

Let me pick another example. Saul. The reason he didn’t fulfill his destiny was because his obedience was incomplete.

1 Samuel 15, you can read the whole story from verse 1 to 29, God sent him on an errand, He told him to wipe those people out, because of what they did to Him in the past

“I want to take revenge, wipe them out”.

He went, he killed the people, he spared their king, he spared the fattest of their animal and God said “kill everything” he didn’t: that’s while he lost out.

Please let your obedience be complete, obey God in all things.

Anytime you want to obey God, please read what He said and do accordingly.

For example, when He says bring all the tithes into My house, He said all not half, not part, He didn’t say use part of it to do some work for me, He said bring all.

I explained to some of my children years ago, suppose a light company, in those days they use to call them NEPA, I don’t know what they call them now, the name have change so often, its their action that we are praying will now change for the better, they used to call them NEPA then.

I said, suppose NEPA gave you a bill of one thousand Naira and you took the money you are going to the office to pay, on the way you saw one of their poles has fallen down and you hired some people to lift up the pole, and they charged you three hundred Naira and then you arrived at NEPA office and said, yes your bill me one thousand, I was coming with your one thousand but on the way I saw your pole falling down and I have helped you erect it back this is your balance, what will NEPA do to your light?

Cut it off. God didn’t say use part of my tithe to do something for Me, He said bring all-

Let your obedience be complete.

Let me take one or two more examples about David. As great as David was he never became 100% of what God wanted him to be; why?

2 Samuel 11 you can read it from verse 1 up to 2 Samuel 12 verse 14, David was sleeping at a time he was supposed to be going to war, he woke up in the evening, he went for a stroll on his roof top and saw a woman bathing.

You know the story, by the end of the day he had laid with the woman and when he heard that the woman became pregnant, he plotted the death of her husband and then took the woman to his house.

And God sent a prophet to him and said, “as much as I love you, as much as I have promoted you, you killed a man because of his wife, you think I didn’t see you and God added to the destiny of David and said from now on a sword will never depart from his house”

It was not there originally, it was added.

Please run away from sin, please don’t rests until you reach your goal.

One of the greatest problems of success, one of the greatest problem of prosperity;

And am telling you this, because in the mighty name Jesus you will succeed, you will prosper,

Is that, these things may bring you comfort that may hinder your work with God.

Be careful.

No matter how comfortable you become, no matter how rich you become, stay close to God.

There are some of us who are here tonight who are simply because we have workers meeting: some of us have become so comfortable, we now prefer to watch the Holy Ghost night on television.

In the past, we were the first to get to the Holy Ghost ground, at that time many of us don’t have television but we had God; we would be the first to arrive, at times we would be the last to depart, we would come at that time we had no problems serving God, we had no cars then, so we have no problem talking about traffic jam, after Holy Ghost service.

I know a man who trekked all the way from Lagos to the Holy Ghost ground because he had no money, he had no job, he got up early in the morning and trekked by the time he arrive the Holy Ghost service, the service was already on, and he was so tired he was fainting, they have to pour water on his head, some of the people here would remembered the occasion, he said, “if I want to die let me go and die in the presence of God”

That day, he got six job offers.

When comfort comes be careful, because God knows how you used to seek Him when things are not so rosy, now He has made you comfortable please don’t stop seeking Him so that something else will not be added to your destiny.

Well, finally before we go, and pray don’t rest until you reach your goal.

In the case of Paul, Philippians 3:7-14, he said I just keep on forgetting those things that are behind and I keep on reaching forward.

Many people don’t reach their destiny, they don’t fulfill their destiny because they stopped too soon, they stop pressing forward too soon, they relax soon, they look at themselves they say “ha this is good enough”

How do you know how far God want to take you?

Somebody ask me one time and said sir, “What are we still fasting for? What else do you want to become”? – I laughed.

Am just beginning, my journey is still far and there are people am looking at here today, your journey is still far.

God will take you to great height- I didn’t hear your amen; but don’t stop too soon.

There are some of you now who cannot fast anymore, there are some of you even among pastors who use to fast with me whenever the Holy Ghost Service is coming – Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, they are fasting and praying, some of them now Lord have mercy, because in those days, we were few .

As they are coming in with me to pray, I can look at their faces and know the face of someone who is fasting and who is not fasting.

Now, there are so many I can’t look at their faces, how many faces am I going to look at?

But am 73 and I am still fasting, if I can still go on fasting and praying at 73, what excuse does somebody who is forty or fifty has to stop fasting and to stop praying? –

You must keep on pressing forward until finally God will say alright, now, you have reached the level I want you to reach.

Let me tell you one thing finally, it doesn’t matter how high you are now, you can be much higher, because when God begins to promote people, He keeps promoting everlastingly, the Bible says, underneath is My everlasting Arms and nobody is too old to press forward.

Moses was eighty when his journey to destiny began, you are not too old to keep pressing forward.

In conclusion, Deuteronomy 30:19:20, Almighty God said

Thank You Father. Thank You Father. Amen and amen. Daddy says there is someone here tonight He said very soon it will be your turn to leap for joy.

The Almighty God said, yes Am sovereign but Am not arbitrary.

He said, I call heaven and earth to be a witness, that I have set before you, life and death, blessings and curses, and I advise you, chose life.

In order words, He said, yes, Am the Almighty, yes, I speak and it is done, yes, I do as I please but I give you a choice between two destinies: GOOD and BAD, He said I advise you chose the good one, and I will back it up.

You, each time we make an altar call, some of you don’t know the meaning of surrendering your life to Jesus;

Remember the story of Levi, when Moses said, “who on the Lord side?” and Levi said, “I am on the Lord side”, God said, “the curse your father pronounce on your destiny, I cancelled, I re-write it”.

God can re-write your destiny for the better, tonight, but you must surrendered your life to Him first, you must be willing to do His will absolutely, obey Him completely, honour Him totally, then and only then, can you be sure that you will reach your destiny.

So, if there is anyone here tonight, and you are still struggling whether to surrender your life to Jesus Christ or not, I am going to count from one to fifteen, because I can see quiet a crowd here tonight, some of you are very far away and if you are far away you better begin to come straight away.

If you want to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, begin to come right now, and if you claim you are born again, but you know you are still living in disobedience, and you know you need to come to the Almighty God for total forgiveness, come tonight.

This night, destinies are being decided let yours be decided for good.

Am counting now: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen,

Those of you already at the front here, begin to tell Him, I have come to surrender my life to You, I want You to please save my soul, I will serve You wholeheartedly for the rest of my life just forgive all my sins, give me a brand new beginning.

A new beginning, wonderful destiny that you will re-write, tonight for the glory of Your Holy Name, just save my soul oh Lord, and I will serve You for the rest of my life.

Those of you who are still on the way hurry up and pray as you come. The rest of us will stretch your hands towards these people that the Almighty God who saved our souls will save their souls also, let’s intercede for them brethren, let’s intercede for them.

And please Counselors, you will need to draw close to these people tonight, there are quite a crowd here at the altar, you will have to minister to them here.

Let us intercede for these people that God Himself will save their souls that He will forgive all their sins, that He will wash them clean in His blood and He will give them a brand new beginning.

Pray for them brethren, those of you on the way just keep coming, I will wait a minute for you hurry up.

Now I want to pray for your salvation, I want to pray that Almighty God will wipe away all your sins and give you brand new beginning.

Thank You Jesus. Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up, the Counselors hurry up too, God bless you.

Thank You Jesus. Those of you still on the way hurry up, keep coming, those of you on the way keep coming, make sure you get here before I finished praying, because am about to pray now.

Thank You Jesus. In Jesus mighty name we have pray .

Saviour , we want to bless Your Holy name because You made a promise that whosoever will come unto You, You will in no wise cast out, we thank You for Your word and we thank You for these Your people that have come forward to surrender their life to you.

Tonight, please receive them in Jesus’ Name, forgive them in Jesus’ Name, all their sin that could have tampered with their destinies, Father, wipe away with Your blood in Jesus’ Name.

Save their souls, write their names in the book of life and please, Lord God Almighty, from today onward, let them serve You wholeheartedly.

Don’t let them go back into the world, and any time they call on You from today, answer them by fire, thank You Almighty God, in Jesus mighty name we have pray. Amen

Now those of you who have come forward let me hear shout hallelujah.

Am rejoicing with you because by the special grace of God, from now on, I will be praying for you and very soon you will be receiving miracles and you will know that there is someone praying for you.

So am going to need your names, your address, and your prayer request the Counsellors will give you some cards very soon, please fill the card very quickly as soon as you finish filling the card return to the Counsellors and go back to your seat:

Fill in your names, your address, and your prayer request as quickly as possible, and if you can’t write get one of the Counsellors to do the writing for you.

Now while that is going on, the rest of us will need to go to God in prayer.

Let’s think back, consider in all ways that we had disobey God or our obedience have been incomplete and begin to confess all these sins to the Almighty God and ask for forgiveness so that our destiny will not be tampered with.

Let’s spend some three to four minutes examining our lives in the past whether we have robbed Him of His tithe, we have failed to honour Him with His first fruit or in any other areas which we have been disobedient to the Almighty God.

Let’s think back, and begin to ask God for forgiveness and for the grace to restitute to put things right again, let’s spend those few minutes while our new brothers and sisters are filling their forms, to meditate and to pray. ….. Thank you Counsellors .

Now let’s write down the following prayer points.

Number One. You want to praise God that He kept you alive till this moment. As long as you are still alive, it means God has not finish with you yet. So thank Him for keeping you alive till this moment.

And then Number Two. You will say Father, please let me fulfill my destiny.

Number three. Father, if there is any evil in my future please cancel it today

Number four. Father, if there is any storm coming my way please diverts it.

Number five. Father, all opportunities that I have lost, please restore to me fully. All opportunities that would have helped me to reach my goal earlier, all opportunities that I have lost, please restore to me.

Number six. Father, with Your mighty hand eradicate all destiny destroyers in my life

.

Number seven. All those great dreams that I had in the past let them be fulfilled this year.

You’re going to pray for thirty minutes. The altar is open, as usual you can pray lying down, seating down, kneeing down, standing up, just forget everybody, it is your destiny you want to discuss with God now, forget everyone else and discuss your destiny with Almighty God.

Glory be to God. In Jesus mighty name we have pray .

Now I want you to lay your hand on your head and pray with all your strength and say, in the Mighty name of Jesus, my head I command you, don’t refuse the plan of God.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

In the mighty name of Jesus, oh my head I command you don’t refuse the plan of God don’t re fuse the plan of God. Oh my head I command you in the mighty name of Jesus don’t refuse the plan of God. In Jesus mighty name we have pray.

Now joins your hands with your neighbour.

We are going to pray together because of the law of harvest, what you sow, you get back in hundred fold.

Lift your voice and talk to the Almighty God and say Father, help this my neighbour to fulfill his destiny; go ahead talk to the Almighty God: please Lord help these Your children to fulfill their destinies, help them Lord, help everyone of them to fulfill their destiny.

Almighty God help every one of them, in Jesus mighty name we have pray .

The Lord God Almighty, the One who know the end from the beginning, the One who arrange for you to be here tonight, will answer your prayers.

The One who saved my soul, Who called me to be your pastor, will grant your request, He will help you to fulfill your destiny, any evil in your future, He will cancel tonight, any storm heading your way He will divert.

Every opportunity that you have lost, beginning from today, He will restore, with His powerful Mighty Hand, He will uproot every destiny destroyer in your life, all those dreams all those beautiful dreams: dreams of greatness, dreams of success, dreams of abundance, shall be fulfilled in your life.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Understanding The Natural State Of The Inner Man

Jeremiah 17:9:
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Nobody can understand the human heart. It is the centre and breeding place of all sins. Thus, the product of the heart affects the soul, mind and body. It either builds or defiles.

Building The Inner Man

Submit your heart completely to God.
Romans. 10:9:
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Jeremiah 17:10:
“I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.”

Matthew_26-41-1: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak
Matthew_26-41-1: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak

Scriptural Meditation

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

Psalm 119:97:
O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.

Joshua1:8:
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Romans_8-1:There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit
Romans_8-1:There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit

Engage yourself in true worship

Psalm 96:9:
O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.

John 4:23:
But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.

Ezekiel_36-26: A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

Through prayer and fasting

One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.

Isaiah 40:31:
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Joshua_1-8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success
Joshua_1-8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success

Reading Christian literatures

Daniel 9:2
In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

Organise personal retreat/quiet time
Genesis 32: 23-24
After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions. 24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak.

Benefits Of Building The Inner Man

Psalm 32:8

I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

Romans 8:3

For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh,[a] God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering.[b] And so he condemned sin in the flesh,

2 Corinthians 2:14

But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere.

2 Corinthians 2:15-16

For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life. And who is equal to such a task?

Acts 9:36-41

36 In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (in Greek her name is Dorcas); she was always doing good and helping the poor.
37 About that time she became sick and died, and her body was washed and placed in an upstairs room.
38 Lydda was near Joppa; so when the disciples heard that Peter was in Lydda, they sent two men to him and urged him, “Please come at once!”
39 Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.
40 Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up. 41 He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. Then he called for the believers, especially the widows, and presented her to them alive.

Ephesian 2:10
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Conclusion

You cannot build anything for God if your inner man is yet to be built. Remember, He is interested in a spiritually built house. Submit yourself to the making of the Holy Spirit and you shall be built for Him.

God doesn’t want us to live in fear of others. As a believer, you can defeat fear

God doesn’t want us to live in fear of others. As a believer, you can defeat fear!

Psalms_23-4-1: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Psalms_23-4-1: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

“Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome….”

Nehemiah 4:14

Few emotions are as powerful as fear. It can cause us to do things we wouldn’t do under normal circumstances, and it can keep us from doing things we ought to do.

Nehemiah and his fellow wall builders in Jerusalem were being threatened with death. Talk about something to fill you with fear! A death threat would certainly get my attention.

2-Timothy_1-7-1: For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind
2-Timothy_1-7-1: For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind

But God doesn’t want us to live in fear of others, because He knows it can hinder us from His work. 2 Timothy 1:7 tells us that God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power.” What this means for you is that feelings of fear aren’t from God, they’re from Satan. Which means as a believer, you can defeat fear!

And Nehemiah gives us the key to combating fear in the verse above: “Remember the Lord.”

When you’re feeling afraid, REMEMBER THE LORD. Remember His faithfulness. Remember His goodness. Remember that He’s your shield and protector. Remember today that the God we serve is great and awesome, and He will not let you down!

Favour From A Distance. Sermon and prayer point by Pastor E A Adeboye

Favour From A Distance. Sermon and prayer point by Pastor E A Adeboye

Pastor E A Adeboye. Open Heavens. RCCG
Pastor E A Adeboye. Open Heavens. RCCG

Memorise:

And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

Isaiah 60:3

Read: Exodus 3:1-4

1  Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.

2  And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

3  And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

4  And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Message

When your day of favour dawns, favour will locate you wherever you are. Sometime ago, we went to hold a crusade in Italy. While we were preaching, the message was being aired over the radio. Suddenly, the Lord said that there was a man listening to me via the radio who was impotent. The Lord asked me to tell the fellow that his virility was restored. Meanwhile, the man in question was lying on his bed in his house, far away from where we were. As soon as he heard the word, his manhood was restored. Favour located him at home.

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O
Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O

By the time he tried to locate us at the crusade ground, we had closed and left for the hotel where we were staying. When he got to the hotel, he burst into our room saying he was the one whose case was addressed, and that he had received his miracle. This season, favour will locate you right where you are. Right in your home, in your living room, on your bed, favour will visit you in Jesus’ Name.

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O
Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O

Favour can always locate you, even from a distance. After Moses had spent about forty years in exile in Midian, God sent favour to locate him at the backside of the desert, in the form of an angel manifested as a burning bush which was not consumed. I also have experienced God’s favour in a foreign land. The first time I travelled outside Africa, I went to Canada for the World Conference of Applied Mathematicians. I knew no one there and had no idea what kind of food I would be eating there. Meanwhile, my wife was at home praying that God should take care of me. At about that same time, someone was looking through the list of mathematicians who had come for the conference.

Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O
Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

As he checked, he saw my name, Enoch Adeboye. He mused that it could be a French name, even though he had every reason to believe it is a Nigerian name. He decided to check up on me. On his way to my hotel room, this man resolved to speak to me in Yoruba language; he said to himself that if I replied, then I must be a Nigerian. He eventually got to my door and knocked. “Who is it?” I asked. “Emi ni (I am the one)” he replied. “Wole (come in)”, I responded. Before that day was over, I was eating pounded yam right there in Canada. Favour can locate you outside the shores of your land. God can use somebody you do not know to favour you. Are you away from home right now and in need of favour? God will cause favour to locate you! Someone you do not know will favour you today in Jesus’ Name.

Prayer Point:

Father, let Your favour locate me today from the four corners of the earth.
