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.

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.

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.

Every word of prophecy that has come in your direction in the Name that is above every other name shall be fulfilled.

Divine health shall be your portion, victory shall be your portion, freedom shall be your portion, joy shall be your portion, promotion shall be your portion.

Beginning from today, even as He has spoken to you, you will be on the fast lane to destiny.

In that Name that’s above every other name, in the Name of the One who speaks and it is done, from today, every day, you will say things are getting better.

Your destiny shall not be truncated, every good thing that God has plan concerning your life shall come to pass, you will reach your goal, it will be well with you, you will not fail, you will not fall, you will not faulter .

God Himself will help you, so shall it be, in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed.

Amen. If you receive that let me hear you shout hallelujah .

Let’s lift up our hands to the Most High God and begin to worship Him. Let’s praise the King of kings, let’s bless the Lord of lords, let’s magnify His holy name, let’s praise Him. Give Him glory, give Him honour give Him adoration.

He’s worthy to be praised, there is no one like Him, bless His holy name, thank You Ancient of Days, glory be to Your name God…In Jesus mighty name we worship.

I want you to lift your voice to Him and say Father, You know all things, You know You are all I have, please attend to me tonight; let’s talk to the Almighty… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

We give You all the glory

We give You honour

We give You all the glory

We give You honour. Amen

We give You adoration

We give You praises

We give You adoration

We give You praises. Amen

Ancient of Days, Alpha and Omega, the Rock Of Ages, the Great Physician, the Great Deliverer, the Great Provider, the Great Redeemer, the All in All, glory be to Your Holy Name, accept our worship in Jesus name.

Thank You for all You have done in the past 29 years, since the Holy Ghost Service began; thank You LORD for multiplying us on a daily basis, thank You for the souls You have saved, thank You for the sick You have healed, thank You for the captives You have set free, thank You for mighty testimonies, accept our worship in Jesus Name.

We are here again tonight on the anniversary of the Holy Ghost service, in the life of all Your children here and those who are listening all over the world, do something special tonight, do something great tonight, do something miraculous tonight, Father by the time this service is over let everyone be singing a new song, in Jesus mighty Name we have prayed. Amen.

Let somebody shout halleluyah. Shake hand with one or two people and say God will bless you tonight.

The report reaching us says; there are some children born here tonight.

I’m sure many of us know the history of the Holy Ghost Service! Some 29years ago, I was in London preparing the Sunday School booklet for the Mission, when I heard God say:

He said son, what do you want for your birthday?

I was shocked!

Number one, because I didn’t know God is interested in my birthday, then number two I didn’t know He could even ask me for a present.

So I said, LORD, if that is You please repeat the question.

He said,  it’s Me what do you want for your birthday?

So I said what I want is that all my members will get a miracle.

He said is that all I want;

I said that’s all I want.

He said in that case when you get home, call them together and I will give them whatever they ask for.

It was then I ask what shall we then call the service?

And He said call it Holy Ghost Service.

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O, RCCG

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O, RCCG

What happened that day at that particular service was so mighty and when we finished our people came to me and say why don’t you talk to God so that we can be doing this every year.

I asked Him and He said why not.

After some time they said why don’t you ask if we can do it every month.

And that’s while we’ve been doing it every month.

And I know that there are at least one or two people here that have benefited from the Holy Ghost Service.

If God has blessed you in any of the Holy Ghost services stand on your feet and shout a big hallelujah.

And while you remain standing, because as we continue I don’t know exactly all that the Holy Spirit will want to do.

I want to stand by pronouncing on you the Father’s blessing. So I want you to lift your hands to the Almighty, and let your amen be loud and clear.

 

“FATHER IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS, CONCERNING ALL THESE PEOPLE, THOSE HERE, THOSE LISTENING ALL OVER THE WORLD, ALL THOSE WHO CALL ME DADDY, IN YOUR MIGHTY NAME I DECREE YOU SHALL ALL BE BLESSED.

 

IN THE MORNING GOD SHALL BLESS YOU, IN THE AFTERNOON GOD SHALL BLESS YOU, IN THE EVENING GOD SHALL BLESS YOU, IN THE NIGHT TIME GOD SHALL BLESS YOU.

 

WHEN YOU GO OUT GOD SHALL BLESS YOU, WHEN YOU COME IN GOD SHALL BLESS YOU, GOD SHALL BLESS YOU FAMILIES, GOD SHALL BLESS YOU CHILDREN, GOD SHALL BLESS YOUR FRIENDS, WHATEVER YOU TOUCH SHALL PROSPER.

 

YOU WILL NEVER KNOW FAILURE AGAIN, EVEN HEIGHTS THAT YOU HAVE NEVER DREAM POSSIBLE GOD WILL TAKE YOU BEYOND, HE WILL ANSWER ALL YOUR PRAYERS BY FIRE, AND YOU WILL SERVE GOD TILL THE END, SO SHALL IT BE”.

“Ni oruko Jesu Christi, gbogbo eyin tien pe mi ni Daddy, yio dara fun yin, laro kutukutu Oluwa yio bukun fun yin, losan gangan Oluwa yio bukun fun yin, lasale Oluwa yio bukun fun yin, loganjo oru Oluwa yio bukun fun yin, be ba rin jade Oluwa yio bukun fun yin, bi e ba pada wole Oluwa yio bukun fun yin.

 

Oluwa yi o bukun fun ile ati ona yin, tomotomo yio dara fun yin, ohun gbogbo te ba hun dawole yio yori si rere, ibi ti elero pe e lede Oluwa yio gbe yin ko ja ibe.

 

Eyin na yio sin Olowa dopin, yin dara fun yin, be lo mari, loruko Jesu Christi Oluwa wa”. Amin.

In Jesus Mighty Name we pray.

Let me hear somebody now shout halleluyah. You may please be seated. Even if you go home now your case is already settled.

In April by the grace of God, we have our usual Special Holy Ghost service for children and their parents.

A very, very special service. Those of you that have attended before you know how powerful it can be.

But let me remind you that because the devil was aware of the blessings of the children during that period, almost invariably he creates a big hold-up on that day.

So my advice to you is that you don’t wait till the evening, as soon as the children get out of school bring them straight away.

There are plenty of places to play here while they wait for the service.

A special Holy Ghost Service for children and their parents. The theme this year is “TOUCH ME OH LORD”, that will tell you that is not for children alone, I want God to touch me also.

I want to thank all of you for your prayers, for your gifts, for your cards.

Even though I have told you not to send cars, just the money, the money that can go on the mission field not cars, so as from next year just send the money.

Of course I can’t reply all of you to say thank you, but my God will thank you on my behave in Jesus Name.

I also want to thank very very much, specially, my covenant partners, particularly those that have been my partners for the past three years.

Your commitment can end today, but if you want, you can continue; so am about to call for my new covenant partners.

I want you to listen very carefully because the conditions for being a covenant partner have changed.

In the past, I normally ask you to fast for a whole month – February and I think November, but for this time all we want you to do is fast for two days every month and pray for us.

Every month at least two days, fast and prayer for us “for health, for strength, for fresh anointing, to finish strong and finish well”.

Pray for us for health, for strength, for fresh anointing, to finish strong and finish well.

Pray for us that we will never disappoint God.

Basically, those are the prayer points.

And then we will be grateful if you can support the work of the ministry on a monthly basis. And we are going to list seven groups; if you fill you can belong to any of the groups, make sure you fill your name, your phone number and the group you want to belong to. If you don’t have anything to write on, you signal to the ushers they will give you a piece of paper very soon.

Group one – are those who want to support us on a monthly basis with at least #1000.     Group one #1,000 and above every month.

Group two – #10, 000 a month and above, that’s group two

Group three – #50,000 and above every month

Group four – #100,000 a month or above

Group five – #500,000 a month or above

Group six – #1,000,000 a month and above

Group seven – #5,000,000 a month or above

Any of the groups that you want to belong to would make you one of the partners.

And my own commitment to you is not that I will fast for two days in the month, I will fast definitely more than two days in the month and I will pray for you every blessed day, every blessed day.

For those who would want to belong to any of these groups in foreign currency:

Group one would be $10 and above a month

Group two – $100 and above.

Group three – $500 and above

Group four – $1,000 and above

Group five – $5,000 and above

Group six – $10,000 and above

Group seven – $50,000 and above

And when you look at various groups, some of you may look at group seven now and say “God have mercy”, I want to assure you, for all my covenant partners as I rise, you will rise also and even if you are at the very low group now, very soon you will be in group seven.

So, if you don’t have any writing material signal to the ushers they will give a little piece of plain paper.

All you need to write is your name, your phone number and your group so that we can contact you. And when you are writing your check as a covenant partner, you write in the name of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, and at the back you write Covenant Partner.

And don’t say because you are my covenant partner and write the check in my name, if you write it in my name, what do you think I will use it for?

Pounded yam.

Thank you.

So when you write the check, write in the name of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, and on the back write Covenant Partner.

In the name of the God I serve He will begin to surprise you in Jesus Name.

Well, they say if you have an email address it will be good if you can include it.

Name, phone number, email address, and the group you belong to. When you finish writing it you wave it and the usher will come and collect it from you.

Thank you Jesus.

Now if you are ready to be further blessed tonight, let me hear you shout hallelujah.

‘IN CHRIST ALONE’.

John chapter 14 verse 14, there we found an incredible promise. Jesus said if ye shall ask anything in my name I will do it.

Anything!

If ye shall ask anything in my name I will do it.

He didn’t say I may do it.

Apart from people saying that when you pray that there are three possible answers.

Either God will say, yes; or God will say, no; or God will say wait.

It sounds very good; but next time somebody tells you that, ask him to show you where it is written in the Bible.

They will never find it. He said if you ask anything in my name I will do it.

Our theme tonight is ‘IN CHRIST ALONE’. Why do we say In Christ Alone?

Because Jesus Christ is unique. There is no other person like Him ever in the world.

One of my sons was preaching yesterday, and he said Jesus has no classmate, that He had no classmate at all.

I got to my room, I say that is true, because He was a professor at the age of twelve. According to Luke chapter 2 verses 46 – 47, the Bible says that twelve years of age He was outstanding, the Doctors of law, at the age of twelve without going to the University.

He was a professor. Jesus is unique because

He’s a King according to Revelation 19 verse 11-16, the Bible calls Him the King of kings. But at the same time He was a Servant according to Mark chapter 10 verse 45. King of kings, Servant of servants. Unique combination.

He was a Lion, Revelation chapter 5 verse 5. The Bible calls Him the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. And at the same time He was a Lamb, John chapter 1:29. The Lion who is also a Lamb. Strange combination

He was the Commander-in-Chief of all the hosts of heaven and underneath the earth, Psalm 24 verse 7 to 10.

And when you say somebody is a Commander-in-Chief, it means you don’t command Him, He’s the one who command everybody else.

And yet, according to Hebrew chapter 5 verse 8, the Bible says He learnt obedience. Commander-in-Chief who learnt obedience; strange combination

He was the Great Physician. Exodus 15 verse 26, He said I am the one that healeth thee. If you are my patient you will never even know what is call sickness. But at the same time He was the prescription.

He’s the Great Physician, He’s the Prescription – the drug you have to take to be well. 1Peter chapter 2 verse 24, by His stripes you are healed.

He’s a Physician who took a beaten so that the patient can be well; strange combination.

He is unchangeable. Hebrews 13 verse 8, Jesus Christ the Same yesterday, today and forever and yet His name spared change, 2 Corithians chapter 5 verse 17, therefore if any man be in Christ is a new creature old things have passed away behold all things have become new. He doesn’t change, but His name brings change everywhere He goes.

He is Love 1 John chapter 4 verse 8; and yet He’s also the Consuming fire Hebrews chapter 12 verse 29. Strange combination

v He is the Beginning. The Beginning of all beginnings John chapter 1 verse 1 and 14 in the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God; and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld His glory, the glory of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. He was the beginning, but He was also the End. Revelation chapter 1 verse 8, He’s Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending.

He is as solid as a rock. 1 Corinthians chapter 10 verse 4, it said that Rock is Christ; and yet He’s as soft as a Word. As solid as a rock, as soft as a word because in the beginning was the Word

He’s as old as old can be. Daniel chapter 7 verse 9 calls Him the Ancient of Days. And yet is forever Young, He said My name is I AM, unchangeably I am.

So you see that Jesus Christ is not like any other man. He has no classmate.

He’s a King and also a Servant, He’s a Lion that is also a Lamb, is a Commander-in-Chief who learnt to be obedient, He’s a Physician that is also the prescription, is Unchangeable and yet He spares change, He is Love at the same time the Consuming fire, He is the Beginning as well as the End, Solid as a Rock and soft as a Word, as Old as old can be and yet forever young.

So when He says if you ask anything in my name, I will do it, that should tell you that the One who is talking to you is no ordinary person.

Nobody else could give you that kind of assurance. He is saying whatever you need, whatever I have to turn Myself to meet that need I will do it.

If you need healing I will turn Myself to a Doctor, you need money I will turn Myself to a Banker, you need defense, I will turn Myself to a Warrior, whatever you need to just ask Me and I will do it.

And only Christ alone can make such a promise and fulfil it.

If anybody should give me a blank check that he had signed and ask me to write whatever I wanted on the check, am sure his account will begin to read red by the time I made the withdrawal.

But the bank of Jesus can never be exhausted.

So I have good news for someone here tonight on this very special occasion, whatever you ask from Him, He will do it for you.

Maybe we will just itemize one or two things so that you can go to Him in faith. And am appealing to you tonight, do not pray, hoping, that the prayer would be answered, pray tonight with the assurance that by the next Holy Ghost Service you will share your testimonies.

Maybe your problem is physical call on Jesus is the Ultimate Specialist.

According to Exodus 15 verse 26, He said I am the LORD that healeth.

You heard the testimony of my son the Professor, maybe what he forgot to tell you is that they were busy testing him, they never give any treatment, never give a tablet, never give him an injection for healing, but the Almighty God did it all by Himself.

I want to prophesy to someone here tonight, even where Doctors have failed Jesus will succeed tonight.

He wasn’t just the Ultimate Physician, He’s not only a Doctor that, never referred a case, and He’s also a Compassionate Doctor.

In Mark chapter 1 verse 40 to 45, when that leper came to Him and he said if thou will, you can make me clean, the Bible says Jesus Christ was moved by compassion.

And tonight in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, God will have mercy on someone here today.

He is so mighty a physician that in order to heal you all you need to do is hear is a word from Him.

Because the Bible says He sent His word and heals them.

In Mathew chapter 8 verse 5 to 13, the Centurion said to Jesus you don’t need to come to my house, you don’t need to lay hands on my servant, stand where you are, say a word and my servant shall be made whole.

Jesus sends a word the servant was made whole.

A couple of years ago, we were travelling and we were in a hurry the car has started to move and I saw someone running after us, saying Daddy, Daddy! Am not asking you to stop just say I am well, that’s all I want to hear, I said in that case you are well and the testimony came of instant healing.

And so am saying to somebody here tonight hearing my voice in the Name of the One who sent me be healed now.

Have you a financial problem? Report it to Jesus; according to Psalm 24 verse 1, the Bible says the earth is the LORD and the fullness thereof.

And one of my children called Him the CEO of the Universal Bank, the biggest bank in the world belongs to Him and you know what, he said even the branch of that bank is inside the river that’s when He asked fish to  produce money out of its mouth.

When you have a need report it to Jesus Christ and don’t tell Him about the big ones alone talk to Him about small once too.

He’s ready to take care of all your needs big and small.

I can tell you how He has met my big needs and you will shout, but I want you to know that He has met my smaller needs also.

When I was at Ilorin somebody came in and brought us a very big fish; we have eaten for the day, we were grateful because there was no money left in the house, but my wife said there is this young man who has come to visit from Lagos and he has seen this big fish brought in, he will be wondering whether he could eat a little bit of it before he goes, so she cut off the head and cooked it and gave a bit of it to this very young man who was very grateful.

As we are about to lay down to sleep, a friend came with his entire family and said am on my way to… where did they call this place… Lokoja and I decided to branch in your place because we are very, very hungry and we know if we get to your house we will get food, I looked at my wife, we looked at our self, very quickly she prepared eba and gave them the head of the fish.

I talked to my wife I said the LORD is my shepherd, I shall never want.

I prophesy to someone here today all your needs big and small, so that you will never be put to shame, God will provide in Jesus Name.

Have you mental challenges? Do you need help academically? Or you are facing a difficult decision? Referred the matter to Jesus.

According to Isaiah chapter 9 verse 6, His name is Wonderful, Counselor, He is the highest Wisdom of all and He is ready to give you wisdom and give it to you generously.

According to James chapter one, verse 5 to 6 if you need even a brand new brain He can supply it.

And I believe there are some student here tonight some who have just been managing to pass;

I prophesy to you in the Name of the Almighty God in the next exam you will surprise your professors.

A woman came to us in America and said please my husband needs help he had been so heavy on drugs, the doctors said his brain has been fried, the brain is as if it had been cooked in hot oil.

The wife says we all live in fear because he sit down at home. surrounded himself with guns so we don’t know what is going to happen next.

I said let’s go and pray for him, she said haaa! If he sees a black man coming he will just go ahead and shoot you, I said let’s go; I know the God I serve.

We got in there, of course I prayed before I went in there, I wanted to come to Nigeria safe and sound, told my Daddy in advance to “go and take control”.

We got in there and he received me, he wanted to talk, he told me the problem he had and I told him sir, what you need is a brand new brain, if you will allow Jesus Christ; He will give you a brand new brain.

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O, RCCG

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O, RCCG

We prayed a simple prayer and he escorted me to the car, the following Sunday he was in church.

Anyone who needs a new brain receive your own tonight.

Thank You Father, I thought since I have already blessed you and that’s all but Daddy says that there is someone here tonight He says you should relax He said those who threw you into the fire would still discover I control fire also.

Thank You Daddy. The LORD says there is someone here tonight He says those who are pitying you now will soon marvel at your victory.

I want to say amen to this one too; because Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said from now on, I will take over your battles.

Are you having marital problems? Report the matter to Jesus. Are you single? He is the Original Match Maker.

According to Genesis chapter 2 verse 18 to 23, it was even while Adam was sleeping that God provided him with a wife.

Am praying for someone here tonight, as impossible as it may appear to you before my next birthday you will be happily married.

Are you barren? Call on Jesus; He is called the Fruitful Vine.

John 15 verse 1 to 5, He says if you abide in Me and My word abide in you then you bring forth much fruit.

I pray for someone here tonight just has my son stood here tonight carrying a set of twins after twenty years of marriage, when it is testimony time next year, your own twins will be three months old.

Have you lost your children? Have your children died? Report it to Jesus.

Jarius came to Jesus and even the daughter had died, she came back to live.

Mark chapter 5 verse 35 to 42, and if you have ever lost a child, report to Jesus all the same, He will restore, He will give you better children than the ones you lost.

Or do you have difficult children? Children who just behave somehow, call on the Deliverer, He will chase the demon out of them.

There are things punishment cannot get out of a child, but if you pray the Almighty God can take control.

In Mathew 15 verse 21 to 28,…

Thank You Father, the LORD says there is someone here tonight, He said you will understand, He asks me to tell you the bottle neck is gone.

…in Mathew 15 verse 21 to 28, the daughter of the woman who came to Jesus was not just difficult, but she was being tormented by demons.

Jesus just sent a word and she was set free.

Some years ago, when I was still a lecturer at the University of Lagos, a woman came to me with a problem; her son suddenly left the University and locked himself up in his room, he will not come out, he will not talk to anyone all that he wanted was someone to open the door slightly and throw in hid food.

He was defecating in his room, he was doing everything in the room.

The woman said, it has been two weeks now.

What do I do? If I bring in the police they will send him to an asylum.

I said, there is a God who can solve this problem.

My God can solve any problem and He does not have to enter into that room, all He has to do is send a word in there, and we sent a word on behalf of the Most High God.

By the time she got back home the boy had come out, he had bathed himself, he had cleaned his room.

And he said, “I have been waiting for you because I want to go back to college”.

I send a word to all your difficult children tonight there will be transformation tonight in Jesus Name.

Have you spiritual problems? Are you fighting forces you cannot see? Report them to Jesus. He is the LORD of host according to Philippians chapter 2 verse 9 to 11,

Thank You Father, the LORD says there is someone here tonight saying Jesus all I want to tell You that am tired of bad news, the LORD asked me to tell you, till you die you won’t hear another bad news.

Amen and amen. Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said it will never be said of you that you use to be rich; it will never be said of you that once upon a time he was rich.

Thank You Father, amen Daddy. The LORD says there is someone here tonight, He said for the rest of your life a time will never come when you will say, my yesterday is better than my today.

… Have you any spiritual problem? Report it to Jesus. Philippians 2 verse 9 to 11 says that by His name all knees should bow.

If any demonic force is troubling you, face them with the name of Jesus and they will be compelled to bow.

When I say in Christ alone, the Bible makes it clear anything anybody could ever need is found in Christ.

Philippians 4: 19 made it clear that my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

In Christ alone, all goals can be achieved. After all, Philippians 4:13 says I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me.

Ephesians 3 verse 20 says He is able to do exceedingly abundantly all that you can ask or think; and all you have to do is ask Him.

According to John 14 verse 14, says just ask anything in My Name, and I will do it.

And there would be someone who will say, but I have been asking, it doesn’t seem that I have gotten an answer yet; two things

Number one. In the Name that is above every other name, the answer will come tonight.

The second thing is that many of us don’t know how to access these awesome privileges available to us in Christ Jesus.

Many of us claim to be Christians, probably because we go to church.

Some of us say we are born again we not ordinary church goers, but Jesus Christ never ask for girlfriends, He asks for a bride.

He did say if you become my friend, just shouting halleluyah, well doing something for me once in a while when is convenient for you, He says I want you to be completely sold out to Me.

He said I want a few chances between Me and you.

He said I want a relationship of a husband and a wife, He said I want a situation that you will able to say for better, for worse like Paul the Apostle said in Philippian 1: 21.

He says for me to live is Christ, to die is Him, in order words, he’s saying I am married to Jesus; whether the going is good or the going is rough, I am married to Jesus.

Jesus is looking for a wife – totally sold out to Him.

Who will say all I am is yours Jesus, so that Jesus turn around and say okay, all I also Am is yours  also.

When I was preparing this little talk because I know the sermon tonight must not be long because there are several other things God want to do tonight, The LORD reminded me about what happened when I was about getting to be married.

Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

There are many of us contesting for the hand of my wife, we wanted to marry a beautiful princess.

Of all of them, I was the least qualified; we were many, but there were three of us that were principal contestants.

She was a student, I was a student, there was even one who has been already a Lawyer and he had a car.

All I had was a ‘footwagen’.

And one day my wife yet-to-be said I was driving through your street and I saw a beautiful story building, that must be your house I said haa (laughing…)

who dash monkey banana?

Story building!

I said, I better talk to this girl,

So, I said please listen I have nothing- no money, no house; ask her, I never took her to my house until we got married; no house, no money, no influence, no nothing, so if I have anything at all, it is the little brain God gives me.

I have nothing to offer you except myself.

If you will marry me, you will have me to yourself completely.

Strangely, she said because you are so honest, I will marry you.

Some of you don’t know the reason why after 47 years of marriage, we still in the honeymoon.

That is the kind of relationship God wants with you,

Total commitment, not half leg in half leg out, He wants you to surrender to Him so absolutely that He Himself will know that whatever you have, whatever you can become, is completely at His disposal.

When you get to that level of relationship with Him, He can ask anything of you, you will surrender with joy and you can ask anything of Him and He will do it for you.

Do I hear somebody say amen.

One of my sons told a story yesterday and with that I close.

They said a man went to a crusade and gave his life to Jesus.

It was offering time and he emptied his pocket.

On his way home, robbers stopped him.

They said your money or your life?

He said, I have neither.

They said what do you mean?

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O

He said, where I was coming from, the preacher asked me to surrender my life to Jesus, and I gave it to Jesus, offering time came, I emptied my pocket, so I have no money I have no life, there is nothing for you to take.

That kind of total surrender, total submission, is what God is expecting from you.

To get to that level of relationship with Him, and I can guarantee you one thing, before the sun rises you will sing a new song.

So, if there is anyone here and you’ve been pretending to be born-again, but now, you want to be involved and you are willing to totally surrender yourself to Him, I know some of you had already come forward earlier in the evening, but I also know some of you came late and some of you don’t understand what was been done the last time but now you know what it is and you want to really surrender your life to Jesus; come forward very quickly.

I know some of you are very far away, so I will count from one to fifteen before I say fifteen let me see you standing before me here.

Then, I will pray for the salvation of your soul and you will have a brand new beginning with Jesus.

So come now as I begin to count- one, two, if you are very far away you need to begin to move fast, total surrender to Jesus Christ in living or in dying, for better, for worse, once and for all submissions; come quickly, three, four, five, six, promise to surrender your life to Him never to take it back, absolute surrender, no looking back at all, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, as you come begin to pray begin to talk to Jesus, tell Him, “I have come to surrender my life to You”.

Come quickly, all I am all I can ever be, total surrender to You, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, begin to pray now begin to talk to the Almighty God.

LORD, have mercy on me, save my soul today, I have come to surrender completely to You, wash me clean from all my sins, give me a new beginning, take me as I am but I will be Yours forever –

I will be Yours forever.

Please let the rest of us stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them.

Let’s intercede for them; You are the One who saved our souls, will save their own souls also, just intercede for them.

I think the counselors should come round so that they can help them quickly.

Let’s intercede for them.

Those of you on the way, hurry up, cry to the Almighty God.

Father, I have come to surrender my life to You, save my soul today.

I want to be totally married to You LORD in living or in dying, I want to be Yours, I want to be Yours forever, have mercy on me.

LORD, accept me as I am and I will serve You till the end, I will serve You till the end.

Those of you still on the way, hurry up.

I want to pray now, I want to pray for your salvation. Thank You Jesus, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Father, we just want to say thank You, thank You for Your word, thank You for these people who have come forward, please receive them in Jesus name, save their soul in Jesus Name, let Your blood wash them clean in Jesus Name, please write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus Name, don’t let the devil take them back in Jesus Name, from now on whenever they call on You answer them by fire.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen

And those of you who are still coming just keep coming, you are not too late, the prayer covered you because He saw you coming.

Now, I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight congratulations to you.

I want to promise you that from now on I will be praying for you.

So, the counselor will give you a little card that I want you to fill very quickly; write your name, your address, your prayer request, and I promise you, I will be praying for you, and once you finish filling the form please return it to the counselors and go back to your seat.

We would give you about five minutes to finish that and then we will continue with the program.

The rest of us, let’s begin to thank the Almighty God for what He’s about to do tonight, let’s thank Him for what He has already done.

Let’s thank Him for salvation of souls, let’s thank Him because prayers will be answer here tonight, let’s go ahead and begin to thank God…

Let’s write down the following prayer points. I want you to approach God with the confidence that every prayer prayed here tonight will be answered.

Number one. Praise Him that you were even alive to see this day

Number two. You say Father, Great Physician, I hand over my body to You please uproot every sickness every disease from my body.

Number three. Father, Great Deliverer, please drive all enemies far from me; just drive them far from me.

Number four. Father, Great Provider, don’t let me ever know lack again

Number five. Say Father, I need You every hour please never leave me alone

Number six. Father, King of kings let me be married to You forever

Number seven. Father, make me a vessel unto honour in Your hands forever

And then you can add whatever you want to add on your own.

Tonight you are going to pray with all your heart, it could not be long, but make sure you pray with all your heart, with faith, believing that every prayer you pray here tonight God will answer by fire; let’s go ahead and talk to the LORD.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Go ahead, talk to the LORD, this Your child LORD, let him/her have a major turnaround for the better tonight, major turnaround for the better.

This Your child, my Father and my God give him a major turnaround for the better tonight, a major turnaround for the better tonight.

Ancient of days let this Your child have a major turnaround for the better tonight.

Almighty God, let this Your child have a major turnaround for the better tonight, a major turnaround for the better, that he will remember today as the marking of a turning point for the better in his/her life.

Father, so let it be, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And then you pray one more prayer for him or her and say Father, let this Your child fulfil his destiny; go ahead talk to the LORD.

Let this Your child fulfil his destiny, Almighty God, let this Your child fulfill his destiny, Ancient of days let this Your child fulfill his destiny, work it out in Your own miraculous way.

This Your child will fulfill his destiny, let this Your child fulfill his destiny, let this Your child fulfill his destiny, Almighty God, let this Your child fulfill his destiny in Jesus mighty name, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

The All sufficient God will answer your prayers.

In a miraculous way every sickness and diseases in your body will disappear tonight.

Beginning from tonight, enemies will stay far away from you.

You will never lack again, and God will never leave alone, you will remain married to Jesus forever, you will be a great vessel unto honour in His hands forever.

Something will happen in your life that will cause you to remember tonight for good.

You will fulfil your destiny, you will reach your goal, the purpose of God for your life shall come to pass.

It shall be well with you, God shall answer your prayers, and your joy shall overflow, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

If you receive that let me hear you shout halleluyah.

Thank You Father, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. And let somebody shout hallelujah….

Shake hand with one or two people that God will bless you tonight and then you may please be seated.

Very quickly lets go to Mark chapter 4 from verse 35 – 41, you would say that’s what the first preacher preached upon. Oh yes! Whenever I have to preach, when somebody great has preached, I just come round and say well he said so and so.

I just repeat what he has said and we are blessed, but you never can tell there might be one or two little things that a Pastor can add to what that great man has said.

Mark 4 from verse 35-41 “and the same day when the even was come, He saith onto them let us Passover onto the other side and when they had sent away the multitude, they took Him even as He was in the ship and there were also with other little ships and there arose a great storm of wind and the waves shift into the ship so that it was now full and He was in the hinder part of the ship, as sleep on a pillow, they awake Him and say unto Him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And He arose and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And He said unto them, why are ye so fearful?  How is it that ye have no faith? And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, what manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?”

Concerning you tonight the wind and sea will obey the LORD Jesus Christ.

There are lessons we want to learn very quickly and I will be brief tonight because time has been a bit spent.

Incidentally, I think I need to tell you this; when you are worshiping God between the period of about quarter to nine to quarter to ten, several chains were broken.

I want to let you know, it is a beautiful experience. God did something awesome here tonight when you are worshiping God.

As a matter of fact, it is awesome that from now on by the special grace of God after the first talk, we will have a section of worship.it was fantastic.

Now, amen. The first lesson we want to learn from this story in addition to all my son has said, is that Jesus in your boat does not mean there will be no storm.

Jesus was in the boat and yet a storm arose.

All it means when you have given your life to Jesus Christ is that no matter the storm you will never sink. In John 16 verse 33.

Jesus Christ said in this world you will have tribulations, but be of good cheer I have overcome the world.

He was talking to His own.  He said in this world you will have tribulations, so don’t let anybody deceive you that once you give your life to Jesus  you won’t have problems, that’s not what the bible says. All it says is that once Jesus is in your boat, no matter the problems your boat will never sink.

So I’m decreeing to somebody here today your boat will never sink.

In Isaiah 43 verse 1 and 2, the Bible tells that after you have been redeemed, then when you walk through the river it won’t overflow you.

When you pass through the fire it will not burn you.  Now, we didn’t say ‘if’; He said ‘when’, in other word is a matter of time, sooner or later in life, there will be a storm, but if Jesus is in your boat when the storm comes, you can be sure your boat will not sink.  So I want you to help me tell your neighbor, you will land safely.

Second thing to learn from this story is that the storm does not give  notice. If there was a notice that there was going to be stormy, probably the boat with Jesus in it will have waited for the storm to blow pass, both the storms of life do not give notice.

For example, Isaiah 38 verse 1. King Hezekiah woke up in the morning and suddenly they told him a prophet of God is here to see you, sir, and he said okay bring him in and the man of God came in and said sir, thus saith the LORD put your house in order, for you shall die and not live.

Can you imagine how Hezekiah felt!

He wasn’t expecting that bad news, but suddenly a storm came. Or 2 King chapter 5 verse 1, imagine how Naaman felt the day it became clear to him that what he thought was an ordinary boil was leprosy.

Or imagine what happen in Genesis 37 from verse 23-28. The day that Joseph came to visit his brothers, he wasn’t coming to visit enemies, he thought he was coming to visit his brothers and suddenly he discovered before the end of the day he has become a slave.

Storms come suddenly without notice.

If there is anyone here today who have just discovered that there is a big problem in your life, I want to prophesy to you straight away that the problem will end tonight in Jesus Name.

The third lesson that we should learn from this story is that whenever a storm arises, call on Jesus.

The disciples spent a lot of time rowing, using their own strength, using their own wisdom, using their own ability, using their own experience and that didn’t solve the problem.

The problem was solved only when they call on Jesus. Psalm 46 verse 1 tells us that Jesus Christ is the Ever Present help in the time of trouble; you have a trouble?

Call on Him and He’s always standing by to help.

Proverb chapter 18 verse 10 says the name of the LORD is a Strong Tower, the righteous run into it and is safe.

It doesn’t matter how suddenly the storm may come, there will always be enough time to call on Jesus.

Some of you who remember the story of a young man who change his religion and the parents, the father in particular decided that they will kill him and the father told his friends to help kill him I can’t kill him myself, and friends said if we kill him is already too late he has spoiled your name.

Not only did he become a Christian, he was preaching.

So they told him what we will do him, we will run him mad. So if people see him go mad, they will think it was the beginning of madness.

And then they told him what to do, made a charm for him, they said, send for the boy when he comes, because the boy was in secondary school; as soon as he comes in, call his name if he answers he will go mad immediately.

So the father sends for the boy. He was sleeping in the story building in the town not far from here and the boy came to attend to his father, as he was entering the house the father went in took the charm, chanted the incantation and as the boy entered, the father called the name; automatically when your father call’s you, what do you do?, you answer. So the boy answered, looking up to see his father, but instead of seeing his father, he saw a huge mountain descending on him.

There was no time to pray, but there was a enough time to shout a name.

Thank you.

And as soon as he shouted Jesus the mountain went back, the boy ran out of the house. Today he’s still preaching the gospel.

Whatever storm may be already in your life, we are going to drive it away today. Let me hear you shout another Jesus… thank you.

The next lesson we learn from this story is that one word from Jesus and there will be peace.

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O

He got up and said peace, be still. He didn’t have to repeat Himself – just one word and all the storm ceased.

Why?

Because Isaiah chapter 9 verse 6 says just Himself is the Prince of peace, so when spoke it was the Prince of peace that was speaking. Not only that, the bible tells us in John chapter 1 verse 1 – 3 that in the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, the Word was God, and if you jump two verses it says by Him were all things made.

When He spoke a word, the wind recognizes the One who was speaking as the One who made him; the sea recognizes the one speaking, that is the one who made it.

And so, when He spoke to the wind, the wind obeyed. When He spoke to the sea, the sea obeyed;

And tonight He’s going to speak to that wind in your life in Jesus Name. He’s going to speak to that sea in your life in Jesus Name; and both of them must obey Him.

One word from Him, that’s all you need to hear.

I told you before, we are travelling to London on our Beloved Nigeria Highway of Blessed Memory, and already approaching when we are asked to fasten our seat belt, when of a sudden the pilot said:

“Ladies and gentlemen, we have a little problem and the little problem is that the door in the belly of the plane refuses to open.”

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O

In other words, the landing gear cannot come out which is another way of saying we are about to crash.

On that day, I was travelling “First Class” because somebody bought the ticket and there were all kinds of rich people there.

There was a particular man there I can’t forget, the rings on his fingers alone would be enough to buy me if were for sale. He had a golden walking stick; there were all kinds of stones – diamonds and so on.

Since we left Ikeja he had been getting up pretending to be going to the toilet just to show us the walking stick.

Now when he heard that the door refuse to open, this time he really wanted to go the toilet. He got up and the hostel said sit down, sir, he said who said so?

That day I discovered that rich people don’t want to die.

Everyone began to shout and those people who had been pretending that water will not melt in their mouth, suddenly they became like you and I as loud as anything.

One woman was saying, oh God, I was going to London to take care of my children; nobody asks her.

And I will tell you the truth, even myself, I was afraid, anointing or no anointing, for three minutes very quickly I examined my life – who did I offend that didn’t forgive me and then finally I said to God, but  Daddy, You didn’t tell me this  is how is going to end.

And God spoke to me. God will speak to somebody here tonight. I heard His voice and said son doesn’t worry yourself, you are not going to die, I want to talk to you, and I know as soon as you land in London, these people won’t allow you and I to talk and we need to talk now.

Ooh! So I relaxed for 45minutes the plane was going round the circles and the pilot added fuel to the fire, when he said ladies and gentlemen come down now, you know that the firefighters in Ethos are very efficient.

Firefighters?

You mean we are going to burn?

After my Daddy and I have spoken for 45minutes the door opened and we landed safely.

In the name that is above every other name you will hear a word from the LORD tonight.

The fifth lesson that I want us to learn from this story is that He had still storm before – Jesus had still storms before.

Physically. In Mathew chapter 8 verse 1-3, when that leper came to Him, that leper was in a storm, he was carrying an incurable disease and he wasn’t even supposed to come into the crowd, but he came with that storm and Jesus Christ spoke a word to him and the storm was ceased.

In Mark chapter 5 from verse 25 – 34, the woman with the issue of blood was in a storm, when her mensuration period began.

She thought it was normal, but when the thing didn’t end after one week, after two weeks, after a month, ha!

Suddenly she realized that this is a storm. But the day she came in contact with Jesus Christ the storm was over.

A relation of mine drove himself and his wife to church. Everything was fine, they finished the service, it was time to go home and suddenly he discovered he couldn’t see again and the wife couldn’t drive.

He left home normal, come to church, have a wonderful service; was about to go home and suddenly the storm came. The wife had to lead him by the hand into the car because the wife couldn’t drive, he sat down there and the wife had to guide him a little step by little step until they got home.

When they got home, the wife had to lead him by the hand into the room, that’s a storm. But glory be to God in the highest. We called on Jesus Christ and his sight was completely restored.

Every physical storm that may be here tonight shall be still in Jesus Name.

He had still material storms before. In 1king chapter 27 verse 8-16, the widow of Zarephath was in a storm. She had a son, but only one meal left, she has taken a decision I will prepare this last meal myself and my son will eat and we commit suicide- that was a storm.

But then, unknown to her while she got ready to prepare the last meal, help was on the way.

For somebody here tonight help is already on your way.

I can tell several stories if you want to know more about that, maybe you should buy the tape on divine encounter of last Monday, you will get that one there.

But He has ceased storms in marriages before, because there might be some people now whose marriage might be going through a storm.

If you read Luke chapter 11-15, it tells you the story of the widow of Nain who had an only son and the only son died and she was going to bury that only son when the Prince of Peace met her on the way.

Nobody needs to tell you that that woman is in a storm.

Very soon she was going to bury her only son, she was going to return home and she was going to become lonely for the rest of her life because the husband was dying but the Prince of peace changed all that.

If there shall be any storm in your marriage, it shall be still tonight in Jesus Name.

Some of the older ones among you will remember the story of one of my pastors here. The wife was pregnant, they went to church, they had a wonderful services they came back home and they were eating when all of a sudden, the pregnant wife fell down and died; now if that is not a storm I don’t know what you will call it.

What’s happening?

Darling, my dear, this, that, the woman was dying. So the Pastor begins to scream begin to call the name of Jesus shouting loudly and clearly and so loudly that his neighbor came on and said what’s happening?

They look down, they saw the woman dead; quickly picked her up because it happens so suddenly.

They could still see the baby inside still breathing, so they rushed her to the hospital and the Doctor checked the woman and they said well let see if we can get to the baby before it is too late because the woman was dead, there was no need for anesthetic or whatever.

You don’t put somebody to sleep who is already dead. So quickly they open her up, cut the baby out just in time and they saw the mother back. Everybody around was praying God safe the baby just save the baby.

Is only the Pastor who was saying safe my wife also. As soon as they sew back the woman she came back to life.

In the Name that is above every other name, every storm in your marriage shall cease tonight in Jesus Name.

He had still spiritual storms before. In Mathew 15 verse 21-28.

Thank You Father, thank You LORD. The LORD says there is some here today, He said I have told you before and am repeating it, My plan for your life shall not be changed.

Thank You Daddy, the LORD says there is someone here tonight He said you have to live like an ex – champion for long enough you will be champion again.

Alright, thank You Father, the LORD says there is someone here tonight He ask me to just tell you I will grant you good speed.

Mathew 15 verse 21-28, tells us the story of a woman who had a very spiritual problem. She came to Jesus, fell at His feet please have mercy on me, my daughter is at home grievously vex of the devil.

It’s a terrible thing to be the mother of a girl who has gone mad.

And when you have spiritual  attack, there is very little doctors can do, but there is someone who can still spiritual storms.

So all of you who are being tormented by the forces of darkness, who are facing enemies you can’t see, who are struggling because of the forces of darkness, creating one problem or the other in your life, tonight Jesus Christ the Prince of peace will speak peace to your storm in Jesus Name.

Now, when He still a storm that’s the next thing we want to learn. Whenever Jesus still a storm, that’s lesson number six.

The storms remain forever still. We have several examples. Mark chapter 10 verse 46 – 52, when He opens the eye of Bartemaeus because Bartemaeus was in a storm.

Not only was he blind, the day he cries to Jesus for help, the crowd instead of helping him to get the attention of Jesus was trying to silence him.

And he suddenly felt the only opportunity I have is about to be lost, but Jesus still the storm because He opened the eye of Bartemaeus and you know what?

Bartemaeus never begged again.

I’m praying for someone here today, that as soon as Jesus still your financial storm, you never experience another one.

When Jesus Christ rescued the mad man of Gadara from the tomb when they cast out the demons, as the former preacher told you, do you know that man was never mad again, he never went back to live in the tomb.

When He heals the man in John chapter 5 verses 2-9, once He healds that man at the pool of Bethesda and that man left that place, he never returned.

When He stills a storm in your life tonight you will never experience them again.

Now, seven points that I want us to learn from this story is that whatever He has done before He can do it again.

He has stilled physical storms before, He will do it again.

When the leper in Mathew chapter 8 verse 1 – 3 came to Jesus and he said I know that you can make me clean if you are willing.

He was basing his faith on the fact that God had cured Naaman- you know the story of Naaman in 2king chapter 5 verse 1 – 14; if God can do it for Naaman, this leper now says I know you can do it for me also.

You have heard several testimonies here of God curing the incurable, so if Doctors had told you that your case is incurable.

I have good news for you, you will soon be sharing your testimony.

At least you remember the story of one of my sons from Abuja.

Daddy my wedding is two weeks to go, they went for test and the bride to be is HIV positive, what are we going to do, we have already sent out invitation cards? I said to him you still have two weeks? He said yes.

I said that’s enough time for Jesus to perform  a miracle. We prayed a simple prayer I said tell her to go for another test, she went for another check, positive became negative.

Everyone here tonight with any form of incurable disease in the Name that is above every other name, peace, be still…

Thank You Father. The LORD says there is someone here tonight, there is a lady tonight, He said I should tell you to rejoice because very soon you will begin to fill a beautiful movement in your womb.

I want to say amen to this before I tell you. This one is for me and maybe one other fellow.

The Almighty God says with my mighty fingers I will touch your mountain and met them away.

And I want to close but Daddy is speaking. And this one again is for me.

Thank You Father. The LORD says there is someone here tonight He said very soon you will become a sign and a wonder to the world.

Oooh, thank You Daddy. I know is going to be a special year.

But the LORD says there is someone special here tonight, He said very soon in your entire town people will begin to say you are most blessed of us all. Thank You Father.

Oh LORD, thank You Father. Daddy says there is someone, here it is not going to be long when your constant song will be ‘He has done so much for me, He has taken away my sorrow, o glory halleluyah, He promise to take me home’,

If you are that one let me hear you shout halleluyah.

Now let me round up so we have time to pray. If Jesus was not in that boat when the storm came that the boat would have sunk because was already full of water before they look up to Jesus Christ. If Jesus is not in your boat when the storm comes that the boat will sink.

In Proverb chapter 1 verse 24-28, the Almighty God because have stretched out my hands towards you and you didn’t regard it, have called upon you, you didn’t pay any attention, I invited you, you rejected my invitation. He said I too will refuse to hear when you call. He said I will laugh at you when your troubles comes.

Remember what He says, if am not in your boat if I have called on you again and again, surrender your life to me, let me come into your life, let me take control and you say no leave me alone I want to enjoy myself, I want to leave my life like I want.

I surrender my life to You, that’s when you begin to say, you can do this, you can do that and I need my freedom. He said if am not in your boat when the storm comes, if you call I won’t answer.

You know Isaiah 55 verse 6 says seek the LORD while He may be found, call on Him while His near. That tells you there is time factor when it comes to surrendering your life to Jesus. If you delay too long it may be too late.

You may call on Him at that time He may say am no longer interested in your case. I will tell you one story I will pray, some of you have heard it before.

When we are still in the very first auditorium beside the road. I had one little office, then very near there.

I was in my office when a friend of mine, very close friend of mine came with his wife. The wife was completely in a comma, rejected from the hospital and they brought her. I know if I get to the camp my wife will be healed.

And of course, both of them were friends of the family. Ha! Almighty God you have to do something today. This family is mine. Is part of my family!

And God spoke to me immediately don’t waste your prayer, this lady is going to die. Haha , no my Father you are merciful you will answer all my prayers. So I lay my hands on her and I felt anointing flowing down my hands like warm oil, the moment it touched the head of this lady it reversed.

I ran to the auditorium fell on my face on the altar; Almighty God, You said in Your word, You don’t want the death of sinners only that they should repent and live, etcetera.

I began to tell Him as if He’s not the One who wrote the bible. I came back lay my hand on her, same thing happens, the anointing flow like warm oil as soon as it touched the head it reversed. I ran into the auditorium, third time, Father You just must be merciful.

Haahaa, do this for me, I know am Your favourite son; by the time I came back the third time she was dying because God said I had given her several opportunities to repent but she refused; now is too late.

If you are here tonight and you have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus, is not too late for you yet.

You can come to Him and surrender your life to Him and He can move into the boat of your life and He can then begin to control everything and beginning  to give you a brand new beginning.

So am going to count, I know there are so many of you far far away. Am going to count from one to fifteen, but before I say fifteen make sure you are already standing before me.

If you want to surrender your life to Jesus, if you don’t come by the time I say fifteen, I know you are not coming then don’t blame God when your storm comes and you call on Him and He  refuses to answer.

I’m calling now. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, those of you still very far away, you have to hasten your step a bit, 12, 13, 14, keep coming, keep coming, don’t wait, just make sure you come here before I finish praying.

Now those of you already in front talk to the Almighty God. Tell Him have come to surrender to You now, no more struggling with You over my life.
