RCCG 2015 Holy Ghost Congress, Day 4 (Thursday), Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E. A Adeboye. FLOODGATES OF JOY
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
There is abundant Joy in Heaven, Psalm 16:11 and in Heaven God is always alert to wipe away all tears Rev 7:17
The opposite of Joy is sorrow.
1. Sorrow is a Spoiler.
Everything that the bible says about sorrow is bad Job 17:7. When somebody is sad, the vision is dim,Proverbs 29:18, 15:13 sorrow breaks the spirit of man, Proverbs 12:22. Sorrow puts a man in great danger, it can destroy a man physically, materially, spiritually. Sorrow is a killer 1 kings 19:4
Father, we in agreement tonight, no more sorrow.
2. What is Joy?
Joy is the opposite of sorrow. The purpose of God for our lives is to have Joy. Joy can be in categories; There is ordinary Joy, there is great Joy. Great Joy comes as the Joy of restorations. When opportunities lost are are restored, 2 Samuel 6:5-15, Acts 3:1-8
Father, every opportunities I might have lost, tonight restore oh Lord.
3. There is exceeding great Joy.
This is the joy you have when you finally reach your goal. Mathew 2:1-10
Reaching your goal might not sound to some people as big but it’s the journey that is encountered with great obstacles, 1 Samuel 17:1-52
Very soon when i share my testimony, the whole nation will shout for Joy
Father, every obstacle between me and my goal, father destroy them tonight.
I shall reach my goal (Amen)
4. There is what the bible call, Joy Unspeakable.
This is the joy that is full of Glory. This is the Joy of having Christ. 1 Peter 1:3-8, Romans 8:31-32
Just to show you that am the sovereign God, the blessing that is not your own will be given to you (Amen)
When you have Christ, every other thing you need will be added to you.
Father, don’t let anything take away Jesus from me
5. Full Joy.
This is a joy so full, you can’t add to it. This is the Joy of answered Prayers, John 16:24, 1 Samuel 2:1-10
Tonight, I can hear someone singing; I will sing of the mercies of Lord forever, I will sing of the mercies of the Lord, with my mouth will I make I know thy faithfulness, thy faithfulness, with my mouth, will I make know, to all generation. Amen.
Father, all what my neighbours have been asking from you for the past years, father, release tonight in Jesus Christ name, Amen!
6. How much Joy can you have?
It depends on how much you ask. The biggest problem with Christians is that we don’t ask enough, 2 Kings 4:1-2
The Lord said, there is someone here that nowadays you find it difficult to rejoice because the miracles does not last, The Lord said from now on, the miracles will last. Amen
How much Joy you get depends on how much you are willing to pray.
You limit the Almighty God when you ask Him for little things. What have you been asking God for. The one who can listen to you, who can make you a lender to nations, the one who parted the ocean, what do you ask Him? Cookies
Father, I don’t want just to be blessed, I want to be a blessing, I want you to use me for your glory.
