Let someone shout halleluiah!

Luke 7 v 11 – 15 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people. Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and much people of the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.

The Lord is going to have compassion on somebody here tonight.

Here is a story of a widow; who had an only son and the devil went to the house of the person with an only son and killed that one son. That is why the devil is such a bad devil.

And as they were going to bury the only son, so many things were going on in the mind of the widow; who did I offend to this extent? They killed my husband and the only son I have, they killed him also! How many enemies have I anyway? Why is my life so full of bitterness?  Am I the only one in town? Why is everything so hard for me?  Why am I reduced to zero? Because I have no one else now; husband gone, son gone. Why is all my way blocked, how come I don’t even have an open way for me to walk in?

Why has death constituted himself to a giant blocking my way? And very soon all these sympathizers will be gone. And I will be left alone! In a moment, I will be alone with my sorrow.  When will the mountain of my life move? When will the storm barraging me stop?  When will I ever come out from the valley of sorrow?

You can imagine thousands of questions going on in the mind of this widow.

Suddenly the procession stopped. Because someone had come on the scene and said to her, am not sympathizing with you, am commanding you, stop weeping! Am sure she must have looked at him and said sir, are you alright? With all these my problems… You asked me to stop weeping?, but she said nothing, she just looked at him, as if to say well, you don’t know what is going on here, but in the next moment, something happened!

There is someone here tonight, in the next moment, something will happen in your life.

The Almighty God is walking through this ground right now and he is going to stop beside someone and say to him or her, stop weeping. Who is that fellow? If you are the one let me hear you shout halleluiah!

Maybe you too have many enemies, but remember what God said to the children of Israel, by the mouth of Moses; in Exodus 14 when they looked back and they saw so many enemies matching after them, enemies that have been enemies for more than 400 years. Those who were enemies of their fathers and grand fathers. God spoke through the mouth of Moses and said to the children of Israel, he said look at them very well, because the enemies you see tonight, you will never see them again.

And my Daddy is speaking through me tonight and he is saying to someone here tonight, all the enemies that have been pursuing you all these years, you will never see them again.

Why? Because God will arise for you!

Psalm 68 v 1 – 3 says let God arise and his enemies will scatter, in the name that is above every other name, God will arise for you.

Maybe your own life too is full of bitterness, there is a God, a God who turned Mara waters to sweet, that God is still on his throne. In John 5 v 2 – 9 the bible tells us the story of a man, who had a history of sorrow. For thirty eight years, it was one sorrowful year after another, but one day, Jesus came on the scene and the history of sorrow ended.

I have good news for someone here today, every year that has passed, had been full of sorrows for you and it looks as if this year is going to end like that, but because there is a God in heaven, who speaks and it is done, from tonight onward you shall weep no more.

In 2 king 2 v 19 -22 for years, for generations,  Jericho was under a curse, there was no more death, no more bareness, because God spoke through his servant and tonight, the same God is speaking through one of his servant.

And tonight through one of his sons and I am saying to you right now, every curse that has been in your generation, that has been causing you sorrow, will end tonight in Jesus name.

Maybe for you things are hard, like the woman would have said things are hard “things are hard” everybody knows what it is to be poor, it can be very difficult to be happy when you are poor, but there is a God who brought water out of the rock; that God is still on his throne. The earth is his own and the fullness thereof, silver belongs to him, Gold belongs to him according to Haggai 2 v 8. And the Almighty said in Philippians 4 v 19 but my God shall supply your needs, according to his riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.

I know there might be some people here who will be saying, Christmas is coming, when everybody will be celebrating, but what do I have to celebrate with?

In the Might name of Jesus Christ, between now and the end of the year, your breakthrough will come.

This woman said, I am down to zero, I have lost everything. Everything that meant anything to me, I have lost them all.  I have good news for you; the woman didn’t know help was on the way. Like the widow of Zarephath in 1king 17 v 8 -16 she said I am going to eat my last meal and me and my son will go ahead and die, but while she was getting ready to die, help was on the way.

I decree in the name that is above every other name, that even before you get home in the morning, God will send help to you. Help is on the way!

Bartimeus didn’t even know help was coming, he woke up and he thought he will die a beggar, but help was on the way.

In the name that is above every other name, you will not miss your own help.

Or maybe your ways are totally blocked, you don’t even know where to turn now; you turn right; it is blocked, you turned left; it is blocked, you look forward it is blocked, you can’t even go back because the back is blocked.

There is someone coming who is called the Way. Jesus Christ said I am the way.

I have good news for you, ways will open unto you.

Thank you father, the Lord asked me to tell someone here tonight, he said before this month is over, you will discover that God does not make mistake.

Daddy says there is a student here tonight; he said I am going to move you, from below average to above brilliant.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight; he said I will touch you twice tonight.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said in spite of every efforts, he said you have always be a failure, Daddy asked me to tell you, things will change from tonight.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he asked me to tell you to get ready for a major transformation.

So your ways is totally blocked, maybe all you need is not tears but praise, because in Joshua 6 v 20 when the wall of Jericho blocked the way of Joshua, they didn’t weep; himself and the children of Israel, they didn’t weep, all they did was praise God. In 2chronicle 20 v 20 – 25 when some mighty Kings gathered against Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat didn’t weep, he praised God and the enemies destroy themselves.  Do you know one of the reasons why you won’t weep again; is that all your enemies will finish themselves off?

In Act 16 v 25 – 34 when the enemies thought they have got Paul and Silas, not only were they in prison, they put them in chains, they didn’t weep but they praise God. When they praised Him, doors were opened.

Maybe I should give you two minute, just to praise God, like you have never done before, maybe we will see something happen. Just praise him…in Jesus mighty name we worshipped.

Together lets shout one big halleluiah

The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said you are fully aware of some people who are determined to terminate your life. The Lord asked me to tell you, i will terminate them all.

Maybe right now, there is a giant blocking your way, maybe there is somebody in authority who said ”I am not going to allow you to succeed.”

But you remember the story of David and Goliath, when David saw Goliath, he didn’t weep, he challenged him in the name of the Lord.

And for every one of you here tonight, every Goliath blocking your way, before the sun rises, shall be dead in Jesus name. And if he didn’t die, according to Psalm 23 v 5 the Lord that prepared a table before you in the presence of your enemies, will shame all those who says you will not succeed in Jesus name.

Thank you father, Daddy asked me to tell you a story, true story. Several years ago, my two last sons were in command school Ibadan. So on their open day, we went to see them, myself and my wife, we went with food; pounded yam, the kind we know they don’t eat in Command. We got there, all parents were there, the children were there running up and down, enjoying themselves. And I noticed a boy; he stood alone, looking towards the gate. Am sure he was expecting his parents, looking and looking and looking and nobody came. So I went to the boy, “you are expecting your parent?” he said “yes sir”. “Do you think they are coming?” he said “I am not sure sir,” so I said come, I took him to join my children, he eat with them, when we were leaving we gave him some money.

The reason God asked me to tell you the story, he said there is someone here tonight; all those you thought will help you, have not shown up, the Lord asked me to tell you “I will help you”.

That widow needed an urgent miracle, because if Jesus had not been there on time to raise that dead young man, very soon the boy would have been buried and that would have been the end of it all.

There might be somebody here tonight, who needs an urgent miracle, like in 2 kings 4 v 1 – 7 the creditors came. Woman, if you don’t pay our debt, by tomorrow we will sell your children, that widow needed an urgent miracle, in less than 24 hours, the solution came.

I know there be somebody here who needed a miracle urgently, I believe God with you that before the sun rises tomorrow, and your tears will be changed to laughter.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, who is in the secret society, in a cult and your heart is saying to you, get out but another section of the heart is saying, you know if you get out they will kill you. Daddy asked me to tell you whoever you are, that if you run out to the altar now, he will guarantee not only your freedom but your safety. You want to get out, but you are afraid, daddy says if you come out now, he will not only guarantee your freedom, he will guarantee your safety. I will count from one to seven, by the time I say seven., if you are not already out, I know you don’t want to come, I will continue with the programs, am counting now …one, two, three…..seven

If you are here tonight and you have not given you life to God, come now. Brethren, stretch your hands towards these people and ask that the Almighty God will arise for them, and set them free from every yoke of bondage, that God will cancel every evil covenants in their lives and grant them special protection from now on, pray that God will make them free, absolutely free from now on. Thank you deliver, deliver them oh Lord from every shackles of Satan…

… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Lord of host, you have never lost a battle, these your children wants to get out of the company of darkness, father set them free in Jesus name. The power that is in your blood, the blood that conquers Satan, let it conquer for them in Jesus name. Lord God Almighty, I pray tonight, that you will build a fire around them and the enemy will never be able come to them again, let them remain free for ever, let them be save forever, let them remain secure forever, let them spend the remaining part of their lives serving you. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Let somebody shout halleluiah! go in freedom, it will be well with you now, just keep going and keep rejoicing, let’s give God a big round of applause.

So if you need an urgent miracle, the Almighty God is more than sufficient, he has done it before, he will do it again, maybe there is a big mountain blocking your way in Psalm 90 v 1 -2 the Bible says before the mountain were brought forth, he is God, before the problem started in your life, God was there and the one who knew the foundation of your problem, also knows how to uproot the mountain. In Zachariah 4 v 6 – 7 he says it is not by power or by might, he says it is by my spirit, says the Lord of host. He says who are thou oh mountain, before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain.

I decree tonight, in the name that is above every other name, every mountain blocking your way shall become plain in Jesus name.

Maybe you are in a storm and the storm is beaten very hard, don’t forget there is a God, whose name is prince of peace. All he asked to do is say peace and the storm will cease. In Mark 4 v 35 – 41, you know the story very well, Jesus was in the boat sleeping and there was a storm and the disciple thought maybe he didn’t even know we are about to sink, but when they woke him up, he spoke one word, peace be still and suddenly the storm went to sleep.

I know there might be some people here tonight the storms are raging, physically, financially, maritally Or even spiritually because Jesus is alive forever, I speak to those storms and I say storms, be still in Jesus name. After all the bib le says that at the mention of the name of Jesus all kneels must bow, your storm will bow, to the name of Jesus now.

And so when he said to that woman, weep not, it was because he knew he was going to remove the source of sorrow. He wasn’t ridiculing the woman, he wasn’t joking, when he said weep not, it is because he knew that very, very soon, the woman will be shouting for joy.

When the almighty God said to me that the theme for November is WEEP NOT, I was somewhere in the bush praying, when all of a sudden he said the theme for November is weep not. Alone in the bush I began to dance, why? Because I know what that means,

I know that there is somebody here tonight, no doubt about it. Long before the end of November, your problems will be over.

I will just tell you a story then we will go and pray, because I know we just need to seek his face tonight. It is a story some of you have heard before. But there might be one or two people who had not heard it before.

We were in the first auditorium beside the road, we were having programme like this, and I ask everybody to pray, it is time to pray, now when I ask people to pray, I always pray too, because I need prayers. And the way I was taught when I was young, that when you are praying, you close your eyes, not like you people nowadays, who open your eyed when you are praying.

I have even seen some people when they say pray, that is the time they are taking pictures, why – because they have no problems.

So I asked people to pray and I close my eyes and I was praying. Suddenly I asked God saying, Son, open your eyes. I almost said to Him, but daddy I am praying! He asked me to open my eye, so I opened my eye. We were much fewer than this then. And he pointed a woman to me in the congregation, drenched in tears, he said to me, go to her, and tell her, stop weeping.

So I went down from the altar, went to the woman, tap her by the shoulder, because she was gone in prayers. I said sister, God said “stop weeping” and suddenly she brightened up because she knew at last, God has heard.

Is there anyone here tonight, that you can feel it, deep inside you that at long last, God has heard!

God said stop weeping, quickly she wiped away her tears and she cheered up.

I didn’t say more than that because that is all God asked me to say.   About a year later, I was at home when the woman came and said, “do you remember me?” I say how many people will I remember? She said I was the woman who was weeping, that God sent you to tell stop weeping.

And she told me her story; she said I have been barren for so long. The relative of my husband says they are going to drive me out. When I was weeping that day, I was weeping in sorrow and now see my baby!

When God says stop weeping, it is because he has made up his mind to remove that which is causing you sorrow. That day it was my turn to weep and I was weeping for joy.

There is somebody here tonight, the next time you weep, it will be weeping for joy.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said before this year runs out, you will sing “All is well!”

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said your benefactors is going through a hard time, the Lord asked me to tell you, because you came here tonight, I will intervene.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said from now your seed will fall on good soil

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said your talent has been hidden for too long, he said now I will bring it to the open.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said from this moment onward, the things you were looking for, will begin to look for you

Psalm 32v 10- 11 the Bible says the sorrow of those who runs after other god shall be many, but those who trust in the Lord shall be glad and rejoice.

If you are living in sin, if you are worshipping other gods, there is no way your sorrow can go, God says many will be the sorrows of the wicked. He said only those who put their trust in the Lord, will continue to be glad and will continue to rejoice.

There is no prophecy that can cancel the word of God. Forever oh Lord, your word is settled; the word of God says the sorrow of the wicked shall be multiplied. The sorrow of those who run after other god shall be multiplied.

The sorrows of those who refuse to surrender their live to Jesus Christ shall be multiplied. But those who trust in God shall be glad and they shall rejoice.

If you are here tonight and you have not yet given your life to Jesus , come and do so now, God wants to put an end to your sorrow, but he will not break his word, all his prophecy of tonight are for those who are Gods children and they can become your too if you surrender your life.

So I am going to count from one to ten, if you want to give your life to Jesus, before I say ten come and stand before me here. If you are backslider and you have gone back into sin and you want your joy to be restored, come back to the Almighty God, come now, one, two, three… as you come, begin to ask for mercy, ask him to save your soul. Talk to him now… the rest of us, lets pray for these people, let’s ask God to save their soul, that he should forgive them their sins.

Those of you who are coming, keep coming. I will wait a little for you to come…. Ask him for mercy; ask him to save your souls, ask him to save your soul… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Savior, I just want to bless your name, thank you because your mercy endures forever, thank you for your word, thank you for this your children who have come today, accept our thanks in Jesus name.

Father you promise that who so ever will come to you, you will in no wise cast out, they have come now, receive them in Jesus name, forgive them in Jesus name, save their souls in Jesus name, let your blood wash away their sins in Jesus name, father please write their names in the book of life in Jesus name and from now on, wipe away all tears from their eyes, let them serve you till the end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Now, I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight, because from now, till every day of my life, I will be praying for you and very soon, you will be receiving some miracles you didn’t even ask for. So I need your name, your address and your prayer request.

You may want to write down your prayer point because tonight, we really need to spend time with God,

1.       Praise Him that you are still alive till this moment; it means the devil has lost the battle over your life. So you want to thank God, that you are around for this November Holy Ghost service

2.       Father, arise for me and no matter how many my enemies may be, scatter them all.

3.       Father, turn my sorrow to joy tonight, my weeping to laughter, my bitterness to sweetness.

4.       Father, you brought water out of the rock before, do it again for me

5.       Father, lift up urgently.

6.       Father, make a way for me; dismantle every road block on my path.

7.       Every storm bombarding my life, still them now.

8.       Remove every source of sorrow, in my family; don’t let me ever weep again.

9.       Before this year ends, let my testimonies be complete.

10.   Your own individual request.

You can pray in your own way, you can kneel; you can lie down, for the next one hour cry unto God.

Let somebody shout alleluia

 

 

 

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

May the grace the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen!

Tonight in the lives of all your children; those who are here and those who are listening by the internet all over the world, in all our lives do something special, do something new, do something glorious, do something miraculous and at the end of it all let your name be glorified.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Let someone shout halleluiah!

I want you to shake hand with two or three people and ask them are you expecting signs and wonders. And then you may please be seated.

Tonight is going to be a night you will never forget for the rest of your life; I don’t know exactly how the program will go, so whichever way it goes, but one thing I know is that God is visiting His people today.

When I became General Overseer, there were some people who were not sure whether it was God who called me or it was manipulated.  Then God began to give us a sign; anytime we call for a special program, that very day a baby boy will be born. All the time without fail!

Well tonight God decided to give us a sign, by 8pm tonight, the number of children born here is five and all of them are boys!

No mathematician can arrange that!

The Almighty God is telling someone here tonight, the night you have been waiting for has come at last.

Some days ago, I was in Ondo State and at a stage in the program I told them a story after which we prayed.  As I was praying for this program, the Lord told me to extend the blessing of that day to those of you who are going to be partakers of tonight.

We are going to start with that one.

So I’ll tell you the story and we will do what God wants us to do.

I told them the story of one of my daughters who came to me and said Daddy,

“I am pregnant”, I said congratulation! Because she was married. “How old is the pregnancy?” She said three month, I said good.

She said that is not why I have come; I want the baby to be a girl.  I said ah the little I know about science makes it known to me that by the time a baby is seventy two hour old in the womb, everything that child is going to be is  already completed; girl, boy, tall, short, everything done within 72hours.

So you have been pregnant for more than seventy two hours, so you have been pregnant for three month; the sex is already settled.

She said daddy, you are the one who thought us that with God all things are possible.

I said yes but… she said when you were teachings us you didn’t add but.

I said okay what do you want me to do?

She said you are not the one to determine the sex, she said all I want you to do is that I want you do is to agree with me.

I said fine infract why did you want it to be a girl?

She said so that she will grow up quickly and begin to wear my dress.

So we agreed, six month later, the baby came and she is a girl.

Now that my daughter is seating with me somewhere there on the altar now.

I know some of you will say well maybe she was a girl to start with.

But then a sister heard the testimony, a medical doctor in Luth.

She came and said, I have already got four daughters, I am pregnant now for 8 month and the scan has showed that it is a girl.

But my in law said you don’t give us a boy for our son now, we will drive you out of our house.

So I have come that you agree with me that it will be a boy. I said sister you are a medical doctor yourself.

She said I have not come to discuss medicine, you agree with that lady, you must agree with me.

I said no problem. I agree it shall be a boy.

A month later she delivered and he is a boy!

Why have I told you the story?

There might be somebody here tonight, who wants me to agree with him/her concerning something.

You will stand on your feet now and tell God what that thing is, that thing that only God can do. Not science, not medicine, not anything human. Something that only God can do. So you talk to God about it now….  In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

My father and my God the Maker of heaven and earth, the One who called me and send me;

Tonight, with all these your children including those who are watching by the internet all over the world,

I am in total agreement with them whatever they have asked for give to them now in Jesus name.

Before the sun rises tomorrow, give them their testimonies in Jesus name.

Thank you because I know it is done.

And I am committing all those who are born in the month of March into your hands, three is the number of the Trinity; God the Father bless them in Jesus name, God the Son bless them in Jesus name, God the Holy spirit, bless them in Jesus name.

Let their blessings come in triples in Jesus name. And let them serve you till the end.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed amen.

Let someone shout halleluiah!

When I was about to turn seventy, I asked God for seventy thousand children, He send them so quickly, by Last December I increased the number to hundred thousand. Tonight I have asked the Almighty God to increase the number to one seventy one.

If you agree, let me hear you say “we agree!”

But I have asked for something extra.

I have told Him that before this time next year, among those of you who are listening to me right now, I want God to raise seventy one billionaires.

Now I know there are some of you who will say, how can that possibly be?

That is why He is going to be God, all I want to say is if you happened to be one of them, please let me know as soon as possible, because He is going to turn you to a billionaire because we have work to do.

In April as usual, we are going to have a special Holy Ghost service for children.

When I said children that means all of us less than a thousand years old.

But seriously speaking from year’s back we discovered that when the dry season is changing to wet, several children suffer from several manners of attack and many of them die.

And we cry to God and He said we should arrange for our own children to be anointed every April and He said He will take care of the situation.

You see many of us don’t know how powerful our God is until we begin to hear testimonies.

A bullet from AK 47 went through the jacket, went through the shirt, went through the singlet and it got to the body and stopped.

That is my God and that is the One who will take care of all your children.

Make sure no child is left behind next month.

When the devil discovered that way God has been taking care of our children, he began to create a special traffic jam to hinder these children for coming.

But then we learnt our lessons; bring your children as early as possible don’t wait till evening. If they get here by 2pm there is plenty of space to roam around.

In the mighty name of Jesus, you will not bury your children.

And the THEME for next month is ARROWS OF THE MIGHTY.

That is what God called the children.

ACCELERATED PROMOTION

2Kings 2 v 9-15 and it came to pass when they have gone over that Elijah said unto Elisha, ask what I shall do for thee before I be taken away from thee, and Elisha said I pray thee, let the double portion of thy spirit be upon me.

And he said thou has asked a hard thing nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken away from thee it shall be so unto thee, if not, it shall not be so.

And it came to pass as they still went on and talked that behold there appear a chariot of fire and forces of fire and parted them both asunder and Elijah went up to heaven by whirlwind.

And Elisha saw it and he cried my father, my Father the chariot of Israel and the chariot thereof and he saw him no more and he took hold of his own cloth and rend them into two pieces. He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him and went to the bank of Jordan.

And he took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him and he smote the waters and he said where is the Lord God of Elijah and when he also has smitten the waters they parted hither and thither and Elisha went over.

And when the son of the prophet which were to view at Jericho saw him and they said the spirit of Elisha doth rest on Elijah and they came to meet him and bow themselves before him.

Promotion or progress can fall into seven basic categories;

Category one is called REGRESSION. Regression means there are forces beyond you that are progressively pushing you backward.

In Mark 5 v 25-34 the bible tells us the story of the woman with the issue of blood, she suffered many things of many physician, she spent all she had instead of getting better, she grew worse.

Forces beyond her control kept on pushing her backwards. Physically she grew worse, financially her money depleted until there were nothing left.

Regression!

There might be some people here tonight, when you look at where you are now compared to where you are last year, you saw that things instead of staying where they are have been going backward, whatever hands have been pushing you back, the fire of God will consume tonight in Jesus name.

A second category is called REPRESSION.

Repression means there are forces pushing you down and trying to hold you down, at anytime you tried to lift up there is this force that is saying no! Go back down.

In Judges 6 v 3-6 the Bible tells us that a certain group of people decided to torture the children of Israel.

When they are planting they don’t bother them, they wait till the time of harvest, as soon as they harvested their crops they move in like locust and gather everything and then leave. So these people will have to start again, and they will watched till they began to lift up their head and then they come and crush them.

Several years ago, when I was very tiny, there was a robber in Lagos, very notorious robber, so notorious that the waxed a record after him.

His name was Anikura and the song writer said concerning him; that Anikura won’t ask you not to trade, he won’t ask you not to gain, but he will make sure you don’t take the gain home.

Now that is repression! Now all those forces that have been pushing you down, in the name that is above every other name, the fire of God will consume tonight.

The next stage is called STAGNATION;

No progress at all, no forward movement, no upward movement, just stagnant like a pond.

In spite of all efforts in John 5 v 2 – 9 it tells us the story of a man who was sick for thirty eight years, always waiting for the staring of the pool of Bethesda.

When the angel will come down stirred the water, the first fellow to jump in will be made whole, as soon as the angel comes down, this man will begin towards the pool of water, before he got there somebody else would have jump in and he will have to go back and wait for another year.

There are some of us at the beginning of every year when they are saying happy New Year, you will say yes this must be my year but gradually January had become December and they discovered that there are still in the same place.

When I was at the University of Lagos as a student, there was a student there, I won’t mention his correct name, let’s just call him u dot, it’s very close to the name but that is not the real name.

He has been in the university for eight years, he has never gone beyond year one, he was changing faculties, changing department but he never left year one, went met there we left him there.

That is what is called stagnation. In the name of the One who made heaven and earth whatever force is holding stagnant shall be destroyed tonight in Jesus name.

Now the next stage is called RETARDATION:

Retardation means there is growth but it’s so slow that it becomes embarrassing.

When you see a child who is ten years old behaving like a child who is only three years old, you will say the child is retarded.

The problem with retardation is that they will see a little progress. But the progress is so little it becomes an embarrassment. Another way of talking about retardation is to call it trapped destiny.

In Genesis 49 v 1-4 the bible tells us that when Jacob was about to die, he called his children together and began to make pronouncement concerning each one.

He said concerning Reuben his first born; he said Reuben even though you are my first born, even though you have energy, you have power, you have everything going for you, he said Reuben you will not excel, from that day onward the destiny of Reuben was trapped.

I’ll give you another illustration; I met a man of God after we’ve met for some five years, I said how are things?

He said “all is well”, how is your church? He said it is good. I said “what is your attendant like now?” he said we are about a hundred and five.

I said but last time I saw you about five years ago, you were about a hundred five years ago, you are about hundred and five after five years!

Even if you are winning a soul per month by now you should have added at least sixty souls. He said pray for me, I think am suffering from the spirit of Retardation.

I am praying for everyone tonight who is suffering from any form of retardation, that spirit of retardation is destroyed in your life in Jesus name.

And then the next one is called the normal promotion; in other words you are making progress, steady regular, as you work hard, progress are coming at least every month they increase your salary, maybe once in five years, they remember you to promote you a little.

You see the problem with normal promotion is that it is normal. For the child of God that is not the plan of God.

In John 10 v 10 Jesus Christ said I have come that you may have life and have it more abundantly. Let me tell you the problem with normal promotion. I think I have given this illustration sometime before;

When you attend a state function (you must at least be important to a certain extent to have been invited) and then it is time for refreshment and they say all head of state will refresh at such and such a place.

All governors and minister at such and such a place.

Commissioners and so forth at such and such a place and they say all others you will refresh in the stadium.

I decree tonight that from this moment onward, you will leave the group of all others.

Thank you Father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said Lazarus heard my voice and came out of the grave. He said that project will hear my voice tonight.

The Lord asked me to tell someone here tonight He said Elephant don’t grow smaller for having babies; He said the more souls you win the bigger you become.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said none of your children will die small.

After normal promotion comes what we call ASSISTED PROMOTION.

Someone interested in your welfare intervenes and brings you to a level that you have not even qualified for. Yes you still work hard, but this time somebody says let us help this fellow. Let’s move him up higher.

I decree to someone here today; the one who will help you, even if the fellow is sleeping now, God will speak to Him in Jesus name.

One of my children who was preaching and he gave us an example of what I will call assisted promotion; Isaac said to Esau, go and get me food so I can bless you.

While papa was speaking, Mama heard and decided this blessing is not going to be for Esau it is going to be for Jacob. Mama did everything; she maneuvered everything and the blessing that will have been for Esau landed on Jacob.

I don’t know who I am talking to tonight, but from the East help is coming your way, from the west help is coming your way, from the North help is coming your way and even from the south help is coming your way.

I can tell you several stories on that, but there is a lot God wants to do tonight,

So that brings us finally to Accelerated promotion, this is a promotion that is completely unusual; you are at the bottom today, the next moment you are at the top.

A very good example is in 1Samuel 16 v 11- 13 it tells us the story of David who was in the bush looking at after goat and sheep and then suddenly a messenger came ‘David you are wanted at home”, what for?

I don’t know, but I see a man who looks like a prophet, then he came home and as soon as he came, God spoke to the prophet and said this is the person, this is the one we have been waiting for, anoint him, and suddenly they told David to kneel down, he knelt down, by the time he got up, he was already a king.

One moment, he was a shepherd boy the next moment he was a king that is what is called accelerated promotion.

Do you know there is someone here tonight; by the time you get home your promotion is already settled.

Have told some of you before, on the day we were getting married we went to the registry and then we saw something happening, there is a girl who was dressed for wedding but we couldn’t find the bridegroom, the man who said he was going to marry her ran away.

The girl nearly went mad but she survived.

After some time she married a soldier, unknown to her the boy that jilted her also joined the army.

And then God moved.

There was a military coup and then the husband of this girl became a governor.

And the boy who jilted her was assigned to be the Aid the camp for her husband.

So anytime this girl wanted to enter a car, the former husband to be was the one who will open the door.

I decree to someone here today, by the time your promotion is accelerated to the point where God will do it, all those who have been mocking you will be bowing down before you.

Because this is exactly what happened to Elisha.

As Elisha and Elijah were travelling, other sons of prophets they were saying to Elisha, ehn daddy son! Daddy son!

Do you know your water is about to dry behind the fish, your master is going today?

He said I know shut your mouth.

They were watching to see what will happen, but in the twinkling of an eye, the one they were mocking at, all of them came and bow down to him.

Do you know there are some people who are saying when they saw you getting ready, she is going again, Papa Holy Ghost service, Mama Holy Ghost service go well!.

In the Name that is above every other name, because of tonight this same people will come and bow down before you.

Let’s have some practical applications; let’s just take accelerated promotion in one or two practical area of our lives.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He asked me to tell you relax I will still your storm.

Daddy asked me to tell someone here tonight, He said you will never go hungry again.

He asked me to tell you there is someone here tonight; He said from now on anyone who tries to block your way shall be trampled to death.

Let’s take the area of health;

Let’s look at the example in Mark 2 v 1-12 there was a man who was completely helpless, paralyzed from neck downwards, the friends had to bath him, they had to cloth him, they had to feed him.

One day they got feed up, they heard that Jesus was near, they carried the man to where Jesus was, there was no room at the door, no room at the window but they were determined they won’t go home with that problem, so they climb the roof, tore the roof and lay the man at the feet of Jesus.

They carried him in, he walked back home. What they used to bring him in, he carried it back home.

There might be one or two people here tonight; that doctors have told you there is nothing they can do for you, in the name that is above every other name, the doctors will get a surprise.

Healings can be in categories, you can be getting gradually better, but God can heal in an instant.

The Almighty God will accelerate your healing tonight in Jesus name.

And then we can look at the area of bondage to forces of darkness.

Take Mark 5 v 1 – 20 the Bible tells us about the mad man of Garderen…

The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I will open for you a new season of glorious testimonies.

The mad man of Garderen, didn’t go for ten weeks of deliverance service, he didn’t spend all night with a deliverance minister, he was raving mad in the morning, within an hour, not only was he completely delivered, he became an evangelist for God.

He switched over from under the power of the devil to the mountain top on the side of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Several years ago, a bank manager ran mad; they had to get four hefty police men to grab him. They handcuffed him, they put chain on his feet and they were carrying him to Arrow (asylum), but in his madness he begged them, ‘take me to Redemption camp; I know if I get there I will be alright’.

I was in my first office near the expressway when they brought him and they told me the story and the way he was looking, he was as wild as anybody.

So I told the policemen he said if my feet touched redemption camp I will be free, let him come down. They ah! We knew what went through before we could capture him, pray for him in the car and we take him away.

I say no, bring him down loose him, they said we will hold you responsible, I said no problem, so they removed the chain, removed the handcuffs, he jumped out of the car as he landed, he said praise God!

He became completely normal.

I have good news for someone her today, it doesn’t matter how long the enemy had held you captive simply because you are listening to me now, receive your freedom in Jesus name.

But you know the better part of that story, he said to the policeman, he said I told you and they were all looking surprise, so they said to me sir, pray for us.

I said well if you will give your life to Jesus Christ first, they said with what we have seen we are ready to give our life to Jesus name.

He was a mad man; He was being taking to asylum, because of his experience, he won four souls in a single moment.

Not only are you going to be free, when you leave this place, you will begin to set the captives free.

Then let’s look at the area of material possession, when you read 2King 4 v 1 -7 it tells you the story of a woman who was so heavily in debt that creditors wanted to see her son to recover their money because there was nothing in the house that they could sell.

She cried to the man of God, the man of God prayed and gave instructions; go home do this, do this. By the time she returned not only had her debt been cleared, she had enough money to last her for the rest of her life.

I don’t know who this one is for, but in the name that is above every other names, God is going to accelerate you financially so mightily that poverty will become a stranger to you.

Many of you already know the story; I am telling it for the benefit of those of you who are hearing it for the first time and for the benefit of those of you who are doubting if you can be one of the seventy one billionaire!

Daddy says, “My son, don’t limit me to seventy one billionaire”

Father! As many billionaires as possible!

If you are going to be one of them, let me hear you say I am one of them.

You know the story of the Arab boy; who gave his life to Jesus but because they wanted to kill Him for converting to Christianity they wanted to kill him he ran away from his country, came to London and had no papers.

So he couldn’t get a good job and all he was doing was working in a fast food restaurant. Then one day a wealthy Arab came to London to buy houses but he couldn’t speak English.

So he would see a house that he likes, he would go to the fellow there and said me house I buy” and that fellow will say get away from me, who told you I wanted to sell my house.

After he has been going around for a while, he was hungry and tired and he saw a sign that they were selling food there, he branch there, sat down and was grumbling to himself in Arabic and the Arab boy went to serve him and herd him speaking in Arabic.

And said Sir, what’s the problem, and the man said Ah! You speak my language, the boy said yes. Do you speak English also?

The boy said yes. I want to buy houses, I need interpreter, I want you to come and interpret for me, for three days, the boy said sorry sir, if I go with you for three days, when I come back my job will be given to somebody else.  He said I will pay you well.  The boy said ‘how much?’

The man said ‘one million pounds per day,’ the boy said please don’t go away, he went to the owner of the restaurant, he said bye, bye’.

That one said if you go, if you come back I won’t take you, he said I will never come back.

There is some one here tonight; you are crossing the border of poverty forever.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said those who are trying to catch up with you will soon discover, I made you number one and number one you will remain.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said even big rivers have boundaries, He said but so that people will know that it is me in your life, I will make your blessing without boundaries.

Let’s look at the area of spiritual promotion; the text that we read tonight, in 2king 2 v 9-15 in the morning, Elisha was just a son of a farmer following a prophet around, by the evening he was the father of all sons of the prophets in the land.

Not only that, by the evening, he had doubled the power that Elijah ever had.

Several years ago at Ebutte metta Head quarters, when we come for workers meeting in the evening, pastors will seat on one side, workers will seat on the other side.

And there was this evening, one Sunday evening, we were doing a little bit of bible study before we pray, so I mentioned a particular passage and I asked everybody to begin to give their interpretation.

All the pastors gave their interpretation; It wasn’t anywhere what I was expecting so I turned to the workers “what do you understand by this passage”?

And one young worker got up and gave an accurate evaluation of the topic. So I said congratulation pastor. Soon as he heard me say that he grabbed his chair and moved to the side of the pastors. The pastors were saying, no, no it’s a mistake.

He said which mistake?

General overseer calls me pastor, what else do I need?

I said my son, anointing with oil will come but from now on you are pastor.

I am saying to somebody here, the anointing service may come later, but your spiritual promotion is done tonight.

Let me round up quickly so that we can do the next thing.

He said before I round up, I should tell someone that celebrations come and go, he said but I will make your  own celebration last forever.

The Lord say there is someone here, He said I will start you with unusual blessing, I will move you on to overwhelming blessing and I will end you up with unimaginable blessing.

You see whether you go up or not depends on actually who is holding your hand; if God is the one holding your hand; the bible says you will go from glory to glory.

Your promotion will be accelerated and then accelerated, then accelerated. But if you decide that it is through satanic means you are going to get your promotion; all you can get ready for is shame.

There is a funny story, the fellow concern is one of the Pastors, maybe you’ve heard him sharing his testimony.  Before he gave his life to Jesus, everybody knows that for you to have unusual promotion, you need a supernatural force.

So he was running around with one false prophet who told him that he must go to the bar beach to wash in the ocean at night. So he went to the bar beach, big man drove his car to the bar beach, removed his clothes, place it on the car and was in the bar beach.

Thank God the wave didn’t wash him away. But one mad man was passing by, saw his clothes and took them away. By the time big man came back, no clothe! So ‘what do I do know, at least I have to go back home, fortunately it was night, so he entered his car and I think his car was also naked with him.

When they got to police check point, when they showed their torch light into the car and saw naked men, the police ran, they thought they were ghost.

One day very soon, you will look back at your years of suffering and laugh.

If you are holding onto God, he will promote you from Glory to glory, if you are holding onto the devil; he will drag you lower and lower.

And if you think you can hold God with one hand with God and hold the devil with the other, you will soon discover what God said, that if you want to be cold be cold, if you want to be hot be hot, he said but if you are Luke warm, he said he will spew you out of his mouth, that is why I am appealing to you tonight, because this is a night you will never, never forget, make up your mind, with whom do you want to go?

Is it with God or with the devil? If you want to go with the devil, take my advice go all the way; do everything evil, make money by any method, so that when you get to hell, you will tell the devil, at least I tried.

If you want to belong to God, go with him all the way.

This ideal of being a Christian and then behaving like the child of the devil must stop. If you want to belong to Christ, let the whole world know you belong to Christ and then Christ will show himself mighty on your behalf.

Now I know some of you have given your life to Jesus Christ tonight, but some of you came later, So if you are not ere when the first altar call was made and now you want to surrender your life to Jesus, I want you to come quickly now, come and give your life to Jesus.

Let me pray that God will save your soul, so that from now, it will be God who will be puling you up every day, because accelerated promotion, requires divine intervention

So if you want to give your life to Christ tonight, come now….

Those of you who are already in the front talk to the Almighty God ask Him to be merciful unto you, ask him to safe your soul, ask him to forgive you your sin, ask him to give you a new beginning, call on him now, promise him that you will serve Him for the rest of your life, that He will be your Lord as soon as he becomes your savior.

And the rest of us lets stretch our hands toward these people that the almighty God will have mercy on them, that the savior will save their souls, that he will cleanse them with his blood, let’s intercede from them for one minute.

… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Savior, we bless your name, we give you all glory, we give you all honor, we ask that you please accept our thanks in Jesus name.

On behalf of all these your children who have come forward accept our thanks in Jesus name.

Father please remember your promise that who whosoever will come unto you, you will in no wise cast out, they have come to you now; please receive them in Jesus name, save their souls in Jesus name.

Wipe away their sins with your blood in Jesus name, write their name in the book of life in Jesus name, give them a brand new beginning now in Jesus name and from now on anytime they call on you please answer them by fire.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Those of you who have come forward shout halleluiah!

Am rejoicing with you tonight, because beginning from now by the special grace of God, I will be praying for you and very soon you will be receiving miracle and then you will know there is somebody somewhere praying for you.

PRAYER FOR THOSE BORN IN JANUARY

Father Almighty, i want to thank you for your children born in the month of January.

January is the first month of the year and so for all these your children, I’m asking this year for first time miracles in Jesus name.

Blessings that will be first of its kind send to them in Jesus name.

Testimonies that will be first of its kind give to them in Jesus name and in every area of their lives, let them be first, when it comes to serving you let them be first.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen.

ANNOUNCEMENT

By the grace of God the February Holy Ghost service will be a very special one.

The theme is wonderful.

Now let me tell you one thing before we begin; after everybody had prayed during the Congress and the New Year service and of course I was praying for everybody.

I was finally left alone with my God and I said Lord thank You for the Congress.  Thank You for the year that is gone by, thank You for everybody who came that they returned safely.

I said it is now my turn, me too I want to ask for a New Year present. My Daddy says “go ahead!” I said “Daddy what I want to ask is big, but am bold to ask because I know that You know even before I ask.

I said in the Redeemed Christian church of God in the year 2013, I want at least one million three hundred thousand healings”.

I am happy to tell you that my Daddy told me, request granted.

And so it will be your fault, not mine, not God’s if you miss any Holy Ghost Service this year, because He reminded me that the Holy Ghost service started when I made a similar request, way back in 1986.

At that time I asked Him for a miracle for every member of the congregation and He said bring them together and I will do what you asked.

That was the beginning of the Holy Ghost Service.

And somehow it kept on going and going. Now He has promised me every Holy Ghost night there will be massive healings.

So if you seat down at home don’t blame me, I know God is able to heal everywhere but tonight is going to be different, so there is no need for me to hurry.

I will remind you of two testimonies.

The elders here will remember one; there was these bank manager, he was a bank manager in one of the town in Ogun state.

Suddenly he ran mad, I mean completely mad, so they called the police, they handcuffed him and they chained his legs, they were taking him to Arrow (Asylum).

And in his madness he said one thing, please take me to Redemption Camp, because i know if my feet touches that ground, I know I will be well.

He was mad but in His madness, he made that request.

And they brought him here, I was alone on the Camp ground when they arrived.  And they told me what he said.  If I remembered correctly I think there were either four or six police men that were with him.

He was wild!

I said if that was what he said, “loose him and let him come down”.

They say ah! We knew what we went through before we captured him. I said but you heard what he said?

Thank God the Bible says it shall be unto you according to your faith. They said “Sir, if we lose him, whatever happened you will be responsible”.

I said “loose him”. They removed his handcuff, they removed his chain, he stepped on this ground and instantly he became sane.

That is one example, you see there are grounds and there are grounds, this is holy ground.

I will tell you another true story, testimony you’ve heard of a woman, she is probably in the crowd.

She went abroad to either London or America to take care of her grand children and there she suffered a stroke and she told the children.

“Take me back to Nigeria” and they said to her “people who have your problem, if they have the money they want to come abroad for treatment”.

She said “if I can get to the Redemption Camp, I will be made whole” They said well, if that is what you want. They brought her here.

As soon as she landed on the Camp Ground, because she said just take me there, that was all.

As soon as she landed, every traces of stroke disappeared.

On this ground this year, there will be Signs and Wonders. If you like seat down at home don’t say I didn’t tell you, but it is up to you.

THE MESSAGE

Philippians 2 v 9 -11 Wherefore, God has also has highly exalted Him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things in earth, of things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the father.

What is in a name?

Everything! Your future is bound up in your name; everything that is likely to happen to you is embedded in that name.

Moses was called Moses according to Exodus 2 because he was drawn out of water.

For the rest of his life; water kept on pursuing him.  He changed water to blood in Exodus chapter 7, he parted the red sea in Exodus chapter 14, he turned bitter sweet in Exodus chapter 15, He brought water out of the rock in Exodus chapter 17 and when he failed to get to the promise land it is because of water In Numbers 20, water kept following him.

The Almighty God knows the important of name so much that on several occasions, He had to change the names of some people for their destiny to be fulfilled.

Genesis 17 v 1 -9 He changed Abram to Abraham, barren man to father of nations. He changed Sarai to Sarah Exodus 17 v 15-16 barren woman to princess, mother of nations. Genesis 32v 24-26 he changed Jacob to Israel; he changed a man to a nation!

Listen to me very carefully, find out the full meaning of your name and if there is a need, change that name now.  If your name means Satan has received this (Esubiyi) changed the name to the Lord has received this (Jesu biyi) get away from Satan.

What is in a name?

My mother told me that when she was going to see the priest concerning my baptismal name, the name she had in mind was Elisha.

But when she got to the man, she had forgotten, so she said Enoch.  I said no problem I will keep the two; Elisha double portion anointing, Enoch the man that work with God.

You want to know my full name? I will tell you today, but before I tell you my full name, do you know I was born on a Sunday?

Don’t let anybody deceive you all these people who are older than seventy, they don’t know their birthday.

They just chose one.  Nobody wrote down names in those days, nobody wrote down birthdays. They just chose one, because you have to give a name in the school, official birthday.

So I asked my mother, when was I born?

She said the year that so and so King mounted the throne in Ilesha.

I said okay I know that one that was in 1942.

I said what month?

She said how do I know?  But she said I can tell you one thing, it is a Sunday.

She said I know it is Sunday because they are celebrating something in the church and so everybody left and I was alone in the house.

So I delivered you alone.

What else can you tell me about that Sunday?

She said it was a very strange Sunday.

The rain was falling and the sun was shining, which is an indication in our area that a Tiger was being born.

You may think I am joking, ask my elder sisters they are still alive, they will tell you one of my nick name is the Tiger, do I look like a tiger to you now.

But if you want to hear my full name, you will find that the full name should be something like

Enoch, Elisha, Sunday, Adejare, Adetona, Olagundoye, Adeboye alias the Tiger. There is one alias I won’t tell you, that one is reserved for my wife.

And when I was preparing the sermon and I felt the Holy Spirit saying write this down. And I said this is going to be funny.  He said just go ahead and do what I tell you, He said when you finish, tell my children this will be a year of laughter.

So what is in your name?

Check if there is any evil one reject it and if there is a good one you want, add and God will say Amen.

Jesus loves names.

He has many names. In John 10 v 7 He said I am the Door, in John 10 v 11 He says I am the Good Shepherd.

In John 11 v 25 He said I am the Resurrection and the Life. In John 14 v 6 He says I am the Way the Truth and the Life.

In Isaiah 9 v 6, His Father called Him Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of peace.

In Revelation chapter 1 v 8 He said I am the Alpha, the Omega, the Beginning, the Ending, the One who is, the One who was, the One who is to come, the Almighty.

Eight names at a stretch and each names is significant, don’t think He was just compiling names, and there are many, many more of His names.

And because there was no way we would have finished, that is why we want to talk about the WONDERS OF HIS NAME.

And because there is no way we would have finished that is why he has asked us to talk about one special name next month and that is WONDERFUL, and I am sure some people will see wonders next month.

His name guarantees deliverance.

He said in my name you will cast out demons, Mark 16 v17. His name guarantees healings Mark 16 v 18, His name guarantee freedom, John 8 v 36 whosoever the Son shall set free shall be free indeed.

His name guarantees joy John 16 v 24, His name guarantee peace Isaiah 9 v 6, His name guaranteed promotion, John 12 v 32, His name guarantees victory; at the mention of His name all knees, including the enemies knees shall bow.

His name guarantees rest, Matthew 11 v 28-30. His name guarantees satisfaction John 7v 37-39, His name guarantees answer to all your questions, to all your prayers, John 14 v 14.

But tonight we want to look within a short period of time at just a few of these names, the one in John 14 v 6 He said I am the Way, the Truth and the life.

What does He mean by I am the Way?

If you are in a town and you want to go to another town that you don’t know, you will ask people what is the way out of these town to where am going?

Jesus is the Way out of sickness, Mark 16 v 17-18, in My name you will lay hand on the sick they will recover.

In Act 9 v 32-35 Bibles tells us of a man called Anias.  Anias was sick, Peter went into his room and said Anias, Jesus has made the whole. And immediately the man came out of sickness.

In the name that is above every other name, tonight someone will come out of sickness.

His name is the way out of death, in Matthew 10 v 5- 8 He told the disciples to go out, preach the gospel, heal the sick, cleanse lepers, raised the dead.

In Act 9 v 36 – 42, in the example that somebody mentioned among those who have spoken before me, example of Dorcas.  Dorcas had died, Peter turned to her and said Dorcas, in the name of Jesus, come back to life and she rose.

Thank you my Father and my God, Daddy said we will start the New Year, with seventy thousand healing tonight.

Jesus is the name out of death.

I have told you the story of one occasion when I went to visit a man.  I got there just to pray for the family and be on my way.

And the wife was carrying a baby on her back and they said this baby will not allow anybody else to carry her except the mother.

But as I walked into the house, the child stretched from the back of the mother, the child stretch violently towards me that if I didn’t catch her she probably would have fallen down.

And I was just wondering why? Well since the child was already in my hand, I prayed for her in the name of Jesus.

Few months later, the mother was confessing; nobody knew that the mother was a witch; the mother said that was the day she was going to kill the girl, but the girl sees death and seeing the representation of Jesus, stretched out and her appointment with death was cancelled.

Any appointment with death concerning you is cancelled today in Jesus name.

Thank you my Father, Daddy asked me to tell someone, He said you will remember this year as the year God begins to favor you.

Jesus is the way out of embarrassment, John 2 v 1 – 11.

There was a wedding in Cana of Galilee and they ran out of wine, and they find themselves in a big embarrassment.

They invited the guests and the guests were seated and long before the feast was over, there was no more wine.

But thank God Jesus was there, and they went to Jesus and He brought them out of their embarrassment.

Every embarrassing situation in your life, you are coming out in Jesus name.

So He is the way out of sickness. Out of death and out of embarrassment.

He is also the way into, just as there is a way out of, there is the way into; He is also the way into; He is the way into the presence of God.

John 14 v 6 He said I am the Way the Truth and the Life, no man cometh to the Father, except by Me.

You want to come into the presence of God? You come by Jesus. And because He is the Way into the presence of God, He is the way onto fullness of Joy.

Psalm 16 v 11, the Bible says in the presence of God, there is the fullness of joy.  It takes Jesus to bring you into the fullness of joy.

Hebrew 10 v 19 tells us that we can now go boldly into the holiest by the blood of Jesus.

I think I was telling those of you who are here for the watch night service and by the way if you are not here for the watch night service, I want to encourage you,  get the tape.

The Holy Communion service was first of its kind. The cross over service was first of its kind, get the tape, both will bless you; get more than one so you can give your friends as New Year gift.

So I was telling them, I said anytime I had to visit head of states and I have visited for quite a few of them.

The first time I visited the head of state of Gambia; security check one, security check two, security check three, then you get to general reception, another check, you get to another general reception, another check, then you get to the presence of the president.

I said it is easier to get into the presence of God.

And it is not Gambia alone, Nigeria too; if you have ever been to Aso Rock find out; they will check you gate one, check you gate two, check you gate three, the people in gate three will be watching you as they are checking you in gate two, they will still check you and that is long before you get close to the entrance of the house and they check again, then another check.

Thank God all I need to do to get into His presence is to say in the name of Jesus. Do I hear somebody shout Jesus!

He is the way out of sickness, death, embarrassment, He is the way into the presence of the Almighty God and He is the way forward.

When everything seems to be stagnant with you, call the name. Suddenly progress will come!

In Act 3 v 1 -8 that lame man had been stagnant for forty years, Peter said to him, silver and gold have I none, but what I have I give unto you in the name of Jesus, rise up and walk, and the man who have been stagnant for forty years, got up, began to walk, began to leap, he began to praise God. When you call that name progress begins.

In John 5 v 2-9 a man have been sick for thirty eight years on one spot; he has been stagnant for thirty eighth years. The moment Jesus arrived everything changed.

I am believing God for all those whose promotions has been delayed, this year your promotion shall be accelerated.

Thank you my Daddy, the Lord said there is someone here special, He ask me to tell you, He said I promise you, that this year your waiting will be over.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said towards the end of last year you did something special for Him, He said this year you will see the abundance evidence of His gratitude.

He is the Way out of, the Way into, the Way forward and He is the Way where there is no way.

In Exodus 14 v 1- 28 when the children of Israel got to the red sea and they couldn’t go forward, but they looked back and saw Pharaoh and his host pursuing them and they began to cry.

Moses cried to God, and God said why are you crying to me? Tell the Children of Israel to move forward, Moses said move forward? There is a sea there Lord! He said “I will show you I can make way where there is no way.

I prophesy to someone here tonight, everywhere where there say there is no way; there will be a way for you.

In Act 12 v 5- 11 Peter was in prison, the doors were locked securely, guards were outside but the enemies were not satisfied they still tied him to two soldiers, one on the right, one on the left with chains, to make sure that there will be no way of escape.

They were so sure they got this one. But Jesus made a Way where there is no way.

In the name that is above every other name, in the wonderful name of Jesus, all those who say they have captured you shall be disappointed.

Let me hear you shout Jesus one more time.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He says your showers of blessings will begin this month and grow bigger and bigger and bigger.

He is the Way out of, the Way into, the Way forward, the Way where there is no way and He is the Way upward.

In John 12 v 32 Jesus Christ said if I be lifted up, I will draw all men to Me.  As you lift up Jesus, He will draw you up.  That is promotion!

In Luke 5 v 8-11, He promoted a fisher man called Peter, a failure! He promoted him so much that anywhere you go in the world today, you will hear the name Peter, you see houses upon houses built for Peter, Peter’s cathedral, Peter Basilica, Peter’s this. Peter’s that.

In that wonderful name of Jesus, you too would be promoted.

He is the Way upward; He can pick up a beggar from the dunghill and keep lifting him up until he begins to sit down among princes.

I have told you before, if man is the one that promoted you, the same fellow who promoted you will bring you down.

That is why I always pity some people that I see who love press men; you want to get press men to write beautiful article about you, so you can become popular, one day the same people, who wrote the beautiful articles about you, they are the one who will write the one that will damage you.

If man lifts you up, number one you go as high as his hand can lift you and after sometime when his hand is tired you begin to come down, but my Father’s hands are everlasting, when He lifts you up, you just keep going higher and higher.

Daddy says that there is someone here tonight; He says I should tell you, all traffic lights are green. And He says He will keep them so for a long time.

God says there is someone here tonight; He said in less than three years, your level will change from a stream to an ocean.

He is the Way out of, the Way into, the Way forward, the Way where there is no way and He is the Way upward and He is the only Way.

Act 4 v 12 says there is no other name, even among men whereby men shall be saved. Mathew 1 v 21 says you shall call His name Jesus for He shall save his people.

When you have prayed and you don’t even know what to say anymore, just keep on saying; Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!

I think it was during the watch night service that I also mentioned this; I was in far away Indonesia last year for a prayer conference and I was ask to speak on prayer.

I told the great men of God all over the world gathered over there, I said God answers prayers, they said does He answer all the time? I said He answer prayers all the time.

I said the only reason you have said that He didn’t answer your prayer at certain times is because you stop praying.

You got tired because you have alternatives. People like me I have no alternatives, Jesus is my last bus stop.

if a member of the congregation has a problem and he thinks he cannot handle it on his own, he report to the pastor, when the pastor cannot handle it, he refers it to the general overseer, when the general overseer has a problem where can he go?

I have no alternative; I have nowhere else to go and because there is no where I am going and He knows am not moving.

Jacob said, if God does not answer my prayer now, Esau will kill me tomorrow morning, so when God says let Me go, he said ah! Go where? I will not let you go, unless You settle my case.

How many of you want your case settle tonight, how many of you are going to hold on to Jesus, until He settle your case?

Let me hear you say amen loud and clear.

He is the Way, He is the Truth, John 8 v 32 says you shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free, when you know Jesus, freedom comes. John 8 v 36, whomsoever the Son shall set free shall be free indeed.

I have told you the story before, my father had a disagreement with his peers, in my village compound in 1960, and they told him because the disagreement has to do with me, I was in my final year in the secondary school then, he said to them, I will do what you say but please let this my son finish his education.

And they told him point blank, so it is because of this boy you won’t join us?  You will see how old that boy will be before he dies, they told him in the family meeting.

He came home and told my mother and I ran and for thirteen years I was running, then I met Jesus, and now the when the forces of darkness see me coming, they run, they run because of Jesus.

Are there witches and wizards in your family?  Face them with Jesus.

Are there herbalists who say they have already destroyed your future?  Face them with Jesus.

Is there anyone in power, no matter how powerful, who says he is going to destroy you? Face him with Jesus.

Is there any mountain that has refused to move all these years? Face it with Jesus.

Because whomsoever the Son shall set free shall be free indeed.

The mad man of Gedaren has six thousand demons in him, one word from Jesus, one word from the Truth and he was free.

The devil is a liar, and he has kept many of us in bondage for a long time.  Thank God the Truth has come.

Do you know for a long time it was taught and believed that anyone who wants to go to heaven must be poor?   They said because it is said that the love of money is the root of all evil.

The devil knows how to quote the Bible, he quotes it in a way that many of you, if you don’t study the word completely you won’t know the difference.

It is not money that God says is evil, He says it is the love of money.

Without money how can we ever have built this auditorium?

Just imagine think of all the kilometer of steel in this place, heavy duty steel all the way from China. Think of all the tons upon tons of cement that have gone into the foundation, not to talk of electricity, not to talk of amplifier and we are not even as good as we want to be yet.

But the devil wants you to believe a lie, you can be the poorest man in the world, if you are not born again you will still go to hell, and you can be the richest man in the world provided you live holy, you will make it to heaven.

He said I wish above all things that you prosper and be in health as you soul prosper.

It is when you want money to such an extent that you are ready to sacrifice your salvation for money then you are in trouble.

Because in the story of the rich young ruler Luke 18 v 18 – 30 the young ruler, came to Jesus and said “sir, what must I do to make it to heaven?

The Lord said oh you know the laws, do this, do this, he said I have been doing all that.

Jesus Christ said only one thing remain, He said go and sell all you have, give to the poor, come and follow me.

Because Jesus knew this man loves money more than salvation, it was a test.

He said keep your salvation and I will keep my money.

That is why Jesus said poor fellow, he can’t even make it to heaven, some people love money so much that they will steal, some people love money so much that they will defraud, some people love money so much that they will inflate the cost of materials; those people are in trouble, because no liar will make it to heaven.

But my God does not want you to die poor, He said I have come for you to have life and have it more abundantly, He said I am the Truth.

I have seen some things, I have told my pastors, I have seen an airport, very big airport, and I have seen several planes packed there and each one has the symbol of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

Your own is there. So those who say you are going to die poor tell them they are lying, we will serve the Lord in holiness, in purity, we will not lie, we will not cheat, we will not steal and we shall prosper.

Whether the devil likes or not we shall reach the top.

Then the Truth.

Let me just one more thing about the Truth.

Do you know there is an organization that says you must not mention the blood of Jesus?

Don’t talk about the blood! And there are some very intelligent people who belong to that organization.

I won’t mention names. I was talking to one of them, I said sir, it is written in Hebrews 9 v 22 without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin.

I said who do you think is afraid of the blood of Jesus?

Only one fellow, that is the devil.

Rev. 12 v 11 said they overcame the devil by the blood of the lamb. The only one who says don’t mention the blood is the devil.

I said the organization you belong to might be connected to the devil, he doesn’t like the Truth but that is the Truth cleanses from all sins. It gives victory over Satan.

Let me hear somebody say the blood of Jesus.

The Way the Truth.

Let me say one thing about the truth as it concern grace.

Salvation is free, it’s by grace, Ephesians 2 v 9 says it is by grace you are saved not of works, lest any man should boast.

Salvation is free, but after you are saved, after all your sins are forgiven, it will be falsehood to say I can now live like a child of the devil and make it to heaven.

That is a lie. Romans 6 v 1 -2 says can we continue in sin and expect grace to abound, God forbid.

We all know that God is love, I know that 1John 4 v 4 -8 makes it clear, God is love.

And if anybody knows about the love of God, please look at me very well, I am a living example of the love of God, He loves me, that is why I call him Daddy, not everybody can call Him Daddy.

Even Christians calls Him Father, but few of us can call Him Daddy and He is my Daddy.

I know Him, He loves me. But I also know Him, He loves me, I also know according to Hebrew 12 v 29 that this my God.

This Daddy, this God who is Lord is also a consuming fire, you don’t mess with Him, if you mess with Him, he will deal with you. I know!

I have told you the story before… several years ago, I have this little camp ground in Epe.

We want to prepare a little place for workers meeting, so we need toilet, so I got a surveyor to take the contract, to build two big latrines, one for men, one for women, at that time we are still using feet, 6 feet deep, each one and we negotiated how much, he asked me to show him the place.

So I took him to the place, when he began to measure, instead of measuring sixty feet, he measure sixty meters and God spoke to me and said son correct him!

I said no! If he is a surveyor and he doesn’t know the difference between feet and meter let him suffer for it.

We went to the second place he began to measure in meter instead of feet, Daddy spoke to me, son correct him.

And I said no! Which university did he go to?

After he finished measuring there is this hefty Hausa man who was one of the diggers that was helping him to dig.

And if you have ever see these diggers you will know what I am talking about, he saw me and smiled at me and said Megidda.

I want to be a nice fellow, so I stretched out my hand to receive his hand, and he grabbed my hand and he began to crush it, and I am telling you the hand of this digger is like iron, he was crushing my hand and he was smiling, the pain was horrible, I had to cry out to God, Father help!

It is not a joking matter you can laugh it is not your hand!

And Daddy replied me immediately and said

“I told you to correct him! I said “I will, I will”.

And the man released my hand.

So I called the surveyor corrected him but in the main time my hand was burning like fire.

As I was going to my car I was grumbling Daddy this punishment is too much.

He said, I will not tolerate any nonsense from you.

That is the truth, God is love, that is the truth, but He is also the consuming fire.

And you shall know the Truth and the Truth will set you free.

If you think you can mess around with God you are in for a surprise. Wonderful God, beautiful God but He is the God of grace, but don’t abuse that grace.

He said I am the Way the Truth and the Life!

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said I have parted your red sea there is no going back now.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said a new wave of anointing will envelop youthis year.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said very soon you will be singing:

I have joy like the ocean, in my soul,

I have joy, joy like the ocean,

Joy like the ocean in my soul.

Then He said I am the Life.

John 3 v 36 says anyone who believes on the Lord Jesus, will have everlasting life, but anyone who will not believe in Him will not even see life, He said but the Judgment of God will be upon Him.

I’m going to give opportunity to those of you who have not given your life to Jesus to do so now.

Thank you Father, one more word for him, for me and for many of us here; Daddy says when it is rained dry grass becomes green, He said there is someone here He said I will rain on you.

If you have not given your life to Jesus please do so tonight.

If you have been pretending to be born again, change your mind, come and give your life to Jesus Christ, without Jesus Christ it will be difficult to survive this year.

But with Jesus Christ, others may be weeping you will be laughing, this will be a glorious year for those who have Jesus.

If you have not surrendered your life to Jesus come and do so now.

Give your life to Him.   He will forgive you all your sins,

So if you want to give your life to Jesus, come and stand before me now.

And as you come, begin to talk to Jesus, ask Him to have mercy on you, ask Him to save your soul, ask Him to forgive you your sins, ask him to save your soul, promise Him that from now on you will serve Him, He will be your Lord and savior.

The rest of us, let’s stretch our hands towards these people and begin to pray for them, let’s intercede for them, that the Almighty God, the savior will have mercy upon them…

In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.

Savior I want to bless Your Holy name for your word that has gone forth tonight.

Thank You for these your children that have come forward to surrender their lives to You, everyone of them receive in Jesus name.

Forgive in Jesus name, let Your blood wipe away all their sins in Jesus name, save their souls and write their names in the book of life in Jesus name.  From now on, any time they call on You, please answer them in Jesus name.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

I want to rejoice for those of you who have come forward tonight, I want to assure you that by the special grace of God I will be praying for you, so I am going to need your name, your address and your prayer request so I can know how to pray for you. Please drop these here at http://www.rccghome.org
