Thank you Father, thank you Almighty God… in Jesus mighty name we worship.

I want you to lift your voice to God,  and say Father, please let tonight mark a major turning point in my life.  Let’s talk to the Almighty God… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

You are greater than the greatest, You are older than the oldest, You are better than the best, You are wiser than the wisest, You are richer than the richest, You are the Almighty God, glory be to Your holy name, accept out worship in Jesus name.

Tonight in your own wonderful way, visit your children, like never before, visit all your children. Meet all needs tonight, let our joy overflow tonight, at the end of everything, let your name be glorified.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Let somebody shout halleluiah!

Isaiah 40 v 28- 31 “Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youth shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

There are seven categories of motion; there are seven ways of making progress.

Number one is total stagnation, no motion at all, in Mark 2 v 1 – 12 we have the story of a man who was paralytic; he is paralyzed from his neck down, he couldn’t move, he couldn’t do anything for himself unless he was helped.  Somebody like that is in what we call total stagnation state.

Next to that is crawling; in John 9 v 1-7 the Bible tells us the story of a man who was born blind, Jesus saw him, spat on the ground, made some mud out of it and anointed where his eyes were suppose to be and told him to go to the pool Siloam and wash.  He washed and came back seeing.  When a blind man has to go somewhere, he cannot move fast.  This blind man one way or the other managed to find his way to the pool.  Crawling means there is motion but very slow and very limited.

The third stage is walking and walking means you are moving now, your progress is not really hindered, it is just that you are better than the one crawling, but you are not doing too well either.  When we where little child, when we want to begin to make motion; we start by crawling, and then later on we come on to walking.

Majority of people are in this level of motion. They move but very, very slowly.  They go from month to months just managing to exist.  For those of you who are listening to me tonight who are in that category things are about to change for the best.

The next stage is leaping; when you leap, it means a short outburst of energy, you go up but then you come down.  It is like that of a business man who gets a contract maybe once in three years.  In Act 3 v 1 -8 the Bible tells us of the lame man who was healed, he started by walking and the he moved on to leaping.  Leaping even though it’s just a short upward motion and then coming down, it is still far  better than ordinary walking.  I know at least somebody here today who will go home leaping for joy.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said the cloud that is covering your vision is being removed.

Thank you Father, the Lord said there is a man here today He said your potency is being restored.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said you are afraid that you may lose your miracle, He asked me to tell you this one will be permanent.

Stage number five in motion is running, now running means you are making steady speedy progress. In Genesis 26 v 12 -14 the Bible tells us the story of Isaac, who sowed in the land of Gerar and that year he reaped a hundred fold return.

The Lord blessed him and the Bible say and the man waxed great and grew and moved forward until he became very great. That is an example of running, steady progress, speedy progress, continuous progress,

and I am prophesying to someone here today; beginning from now, your business will begin to run, your ministry will begin to run. In every sphere of your life, there will be steady progress.

And then next to running is flying, when we talk about flying we are talking about total unhindered motion. The journey from here to Abuja by road, if you are to run, for a very strong man, would take you at least two days but when you fly, it takes less than one hour.

Those of you who are already running before tomorrow morning you will be flying.

We have several examples here but maybe one or two will do.

The Almighty God said there is somebody here today; He said I will put your enemy to sleep until you escape.

The Lord asked me to tell someone, He said before the end of this month the storm will be over.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said some powerful people are about to take some decision concerning you, He asked me to tell you not to worry that He is the God of all flesh.

Daddy says there are some people here you need spare parts; some needs new eyes, some need new brains, some needs new wombs. The Lord ask me to tell you just lift up your hands and receive your own now, just say Lord I thank you, thank you for my new spare parts, go ahead and tell him, because very soon you are going to testify. New hands, new eyes, new legs, new lungs, new liver, new spare parts, new kidneys.

Let me hear somebody shout halleluiah!

So in 1 Samuel 16 v 11- 13 we see the story of David he woke up a shepherd boy before the evening he was a king.  Now that is flying, that is speedy progress, far, far beyond ordinary running.

Tell your neighbor, from now on I will fly.

Again there is a stage seven, you see when the bird flies, it spent its own energy to fly. Stage seven is to be carried in a plane and then fly. In that case you make no effort you just sat down and you keep flying. Those who have travelled by the plane will tell you, no sweating, you seat down, you are eating, you are drinking, and before you know it you have arrived.

There is somebody here today that the Almighty God will carry on His eagle’s wing and without any efforts on your side, He will take you to your goals.

He has done it before in Exodus 19 v 3 -4 when they brought the children of Israel out of bondage, He carries them on eagle wings, all their effort could not have freed them from Pharaoh but God intervened and because God intervened, they were able to not just to leave bondage; God placed them where the enemy could no longer touch them.

In the name that is above every other name, that level where the enemy will no longer be able to touch you, God will take you there tonight. That level where you will no longer need to beg for anything, the Almighty God will take you there.

Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said you will not need medical attention for a long, long time.

Now when the bird is flying, if he is carrying his food or anything with it, he has to carry that along, but when you are flying in a plane, the plane that is carrying you is also carrying your load.

And when you read Isaiah 53 v 4 – 5 it tells you that the Almighty God is not only able to carry you, He is able to carry your burdens too.

I can assure somebody here tonight, because you came; all your burdens shall be carried by the Almighty God.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I have a surprise package for you that will dazzle you.  A surprise package so big, that long after you get it, you will still think you a dreaming.

Now very briefly, we need to understand that a bird fly with two wings; when a bird has only one wing it cannot fly.   You need the two wings of the eagle and this is where I want to spend a few minute so that we will understand fully what the Almighty God wants to do for us.

When you read 1Corinthians 1 v 22- 24 it tells you about the two wings that you need if you want to enjoy this wonderful flight.  He said the Jews require a sign, the Greeks seek after wisdom. The Jews they want miracle signs and wonders, the Greeks; wisdom.  But then he said you need both, and both are to be found in Jesus.  He said Jesus is the wisdom of God and the power of God. The power gives the miracles; the wisdom gives the other wing.

We are very used to signs and wonders.  in The Redeemed Christian church of God we see it every day, we’ve heard testimonies tonight, we have heard of the sister who was paralyzed, who said to the husband just get me a picture of daddy, got the picture and became whole immediately.

Daddy has nothing to do with that, I didn’t know what was happening, that is a sign that is a miracle.

We have heard of someone who took a handkerchief that we bless to her son that the doctor said there is nothing more we can do for this kidney fellow and he got a brand new kidney; that is a sign.

You heard about the man whose wife’s kidney fail, liver fail, wife was in a comma. He took an handkerchief to her, she walk out of the hospital with brand new kidney and brand new liver – that is a sign.

Every miracle you need, every sign from God, you will get it tonight in the mighty name of Jesus.

The area where many of us are deficient is the area of wisdom, we want benefits without responsibilities.  Your bird cannot fly with one wing, Isaiah 1 v 19 says if you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land.  The good of the land is available; it’s your own benefits.  Your responsibility is you must be willing and obedient.

When we go through the scriptures, we see responsibility and benefit balancing out, some of us want the power of God, Act 1 v 8 says you will receive power provided you are willing to evangelize.  You will receive power and be my witness.  Some of us want anointing, we want to be able to just wave our hands and the blind will begin to see, we hear testimony that shake us and we say we want that anointing too.

We just had an Holy Ghost night in Dublin before we came for the convention and one of the testimonies that got everybody jumping and climbing was that of a woman, she has been barren for a very long time and have heard the testimony of people who said they were barren and they sat on the chair we sat on and then they became pregnant.  So one day, when we finished the program, everybody was rushing to go and seat on the chair and then one man took the chair away, the woman was sad.  But then she had a brain wave and said the pulpit is there, he was at the pulpit, so she went to the pulpit and begin to rub her stomach against the pulpit, that month she became pregnant and when she was testifying she showed us three children two boys and a girl.  As we were rejoicing, I looked at the eyes of one of the pastors who was deep in prayer, and I could read what was going on in his mind;  “God give me that kind of anointing!”

How many of you want that kind of anointing?  May you receive it tonight in Jesus name,

But it is conditional Hebrew 1 v 9, He said because you love righteousness and you hate iniquity that is why God your God has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.

You want an anointing, you must balance it with holiness, anointing without holiness is like a machine gun in the hand of a mad man, Samson has anointing but he lack holiness, and it destroyed him.

The blessing that will destroy you, you will never get it in Jesus name.

Some people wants victory but they don’t want to pay the price.  Victory is available, the Almighty God wants you to be victorious but if you read James 4 v 7 the Bible said it clearly if you want victory over Satan, you must first of all submit to God.

Submission must go hand in hand with victory, submit yourself first to God, then resist the devil and he will flee from you, many of us don’t want to submit to authority and yet we want to and expect Him to heal – it is not going to happen,  because a bird doesn’t fly with one wing.  Submission must come hand in hand with victory.  Many of us wants breakthroughs but we know Malachi 3 v 10 He said you want a breakthrough?  He said bring all the tithes to my house, we don’t want to tithe but we want God to open the windows of heaven, and bring in just one breakthrough – it is not going to happen, because a bird does not fly with one wing.

You meet the conditions of God; He will meet the other side.  Promotion must work hand in hand with diligence.

The Lord said there is someone where tonight, he said I will replace your entire digestive system.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said what people are saying about you now is that the sun of your family is set.  God asked me to tell you as the sun is rising tomorrow morning, the sun of your family will rise again.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said you will understand when I tell you, He said the flow stopped because you drifted away from Him, He asked me to tell you, because you have decided to come back to Him, the flow will begin again.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I assure you; from now on you will enjoy my peace.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said at long last, the spring that is in you will begin to produce a big river.

Promotion will go ahead with diligence Proverb 22 v 29 seeth thou a man diligent in his business, he will stand before kings and not before mean men.  Many of us wants to prosper, we want to become great but we don’t want to work, it is not going to happen.

God is not a magician, He is a miracle worker, He is a rewarder of those who are diligent. Hebrew 11 v 6 God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.  You want to make first class but you don’t want to study, it is not going to happen.  You must learn to work hard.

You are the one delaying the blessings God has for you, because you are too lazy, God almighty want you to wake up, if you wake up now and decide that from now on you will begin to work hard, by the time we come again next year, you will know that the God we serve is the Almighty.

He opened a door for you and he expect you to finish that assignment for one month, you are still on it for one year, how is he going to give you another one.  And yet there are doors that the Almighty God wants to open.

I gave someone an assignment; get me a little fish pound and they’ve been on it for months. I went to them one day and say I know you will finish within one year, they replied no sir, we will finish within nine month, the work of two weeks!

How many of you want to reach the top? How many of us will stop being lazy, Jesus Christ said, my father work hitherto and I work, the Almighty God is still working till now, so what excuse are you going to give for not working?

Anyone who is going to because an excellent person, someone who will excel, according to 1Corthinas 9v 24-27 anyone who is going to excel must be self disciplined.  You must keep your body under.  If you are going to excel, you must be self disciplined, don’t let us deceive ourselves; greatness is available, there is plenty of room at the top, the problem is, are you willing to do the work that will qualify you for the top?

Some of you will say Daddy, what is happening tonight.

I will tell you what is happening tonight is going to mark a new beginning for somebody.

God has given me a little glimpse to the future, He is about to raise up some great people and I want you too to be one of them.  How many of you want to be great?  Are you really ready to be great?  Nobody else will tell you the truth if I don’t tell you, I don’t want to be popular, so if you don’t like me anymore it doesn’t matter but you must reach the top.

Anyone who wants to be pre-eminent, anyone who wants to mount with wings like eagle cannot be lazy, Isaiah 40 v 31 says it is they that wait upon the Lord that will renewed their strength, they are the one who will mount with wings as eagles.

I told you the highest level of motion is to be carried, the one who will carry you on the flight is Jesus Christ, he said in John 15 v 5, He said without me you can do nothing.  If I don’t carry you, you won’t get there.

In Philippians 4 v 13 He said I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, the aircraft that will carry you is Christ.  He will be the one who will do the work, but He expects you to do only one thing: wait on him.

We don’t want to pray and we want miracles, we want signs and wonders, it’s not going to happen, you pray for five minutes and you say that is enough, God is not your house boy, He is the King of kings, He is the Lord of lords, you must learn to wait on Him.

I remembered one occasion; the president said he wanted to see me, not the present one.  He gave me an appointment for 11am, I arrived at 10am, he didn’t see me until 1pm… suppose am the one who needed to see Him… and he saw me at 1pm because I threatened to leave, I got up and told the secretary, tell Mr. President, I have been here for three hours, there are sick people waiting for me, I am going.  Now I could only say that because I wasn’t the one who needed help, he was the one who need my help at that time.  If I was the one who need his help even if he saw me by 9pm I will wait.

How many of you know that the almighty God is greater than any president, one miracle from Him that is all, but you don’t want to wait on Him, you pray for two minutes and you think that is enough.

I have told you the story before, we had a convention, I have finished everything, very tired, I told my wife, I don’t want to be disturbed, I want to rest.  I was so tired, I got to the bed and I was almost fast asleep immediately.  Soon as I left for my room, a woman came from the north, asked my children, is papa in?  And since they can’t lie they said yes, but he said he is not seeing anybody.  The woman said is he in?  he said fine, I will seat down here until he comes out.  They said to her he is not coming out today, the woman said who said today?  I said is he in?  she said that’s all. They told my wife, they gave her food, thinking after that she will go, she sat down there, finally my wife came and said I know you are tired, but you better add this to your tiredness, because this woman said she is not going anywhere, I had to come out  in my pajamas to come and attend  to her.

God is not on a journey, but how many of you are ready to tell God, am not going anywhere until you solve my problem.  Because time is gone we will not do what we have been doing since Monday, we are not going to ask you to pray for one hour, but at least twenty minutes, you are going to stand on your feet, if you like you can sleep, nobody is going to stop you, if you want you can kneel, but for the next twenty minutes,

You are going to lift your voice to the Almighty God, and say father, I am going to stay with you until my joy is full, … and then begin to tell him all the things you want God to do for you. I am giving you just twenty minute… ask everything you can continue your prayer…

in Jesus mighty name we have prayed,

God will answer you tonight, He will open the windows of heaven to you tonight, that which you have been asking for all these years; you will receive it tonight in Jesus name.

And your testimony shall be great. So shall it be, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

In the mighty name of Jesus, I fly over every mountain, every mountain of sorrow, over mountain of failure, over every mountain of fruitless effort, over every mountain blocking my way…

and so shall it be in the name of Jesus,

Will you please lay the handkerchief on your own head, and remember The Just shall live by faith.

Tonight and whatever you say tonight, it is established forever.  Talk now to the Almighty God.

Let Somebody Shout Alleluia

 

 

 

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

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

Let me assure you of one thing, the congress of this year is going to be one of its kinds; it will be a kind of congress you have never seen before.

But if you are able to come but you seat down at home the blessing of coming can never be the same as the blessing transmitted by any means at all. So if I were you, I will just make sure beginning from Monday to Saturday I won’t miss a single day and the Almighty God will surprise you in Jesus name.

GREAT EXPECTATION

Text:  Mark 5 v 25- 34

Tonight we want to talk on Great Expectations.

“And a certain woman who had an issue of blood twelve years and have endured much at the hands of many physicians and had spent all that she had and was not helped at all, but rather had grown worse.

After hearing about Jesus, she came up in the crowd behind him and touched his cloak.

For she said if I may touched “if I just touch his garments, I will get well” immediately the flow of her blood was drained up and she felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.

Immediately Jesus, perceiving in Himself that the power proceeding from him had gone forth, turned around in the crowd and said who touched my garments.

And his disciples said to him, “you see the crowd pressing in on you and you say , who touched me? And he looked around to see the woman who had done this thing.

But the woman fearing and trembling, aware of what had happened to her, came and fell down before him and told him the whole truth.

And he said to her, “daughter your faith has made you well, go in peace and be healed of your affliction”.

Someone will leave here tonight completely whole.

What do we mean by expectation?

In the simplest language expectation simply means you are looking forward to something about to happen.

When a woman is pregnant we say she is expectant, meaning what, she is looking forward to babies being born.

James 5 v 7 tells us that the husband man; that is, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth and he has long patient for it.

The farmer is expecting that the seed he planted is going to produce fruit.  So when we talk about expectation tonight, we are talking about looking forward to God doing something.

And I have come on the authority of the Almighty God to tell you, you will not be disappointed.

When we use the word great, great can mean so many things.  It depends on how you use it. When you say a man is great, that is different from when you say the crowd is great.

You are still saying great, great could be large in number, it could mean high in quality, it could mean tremendous in influence and so on and so forth.

For example in 2 King 4 v 8 -17 the Bible talked about a woman of Shunnem and the Bible called her great.

She was called great because she has a lot of wealth, you can’t be poor to build a house for a pastor, she was wealthy, but when Elisha said may I introduce you to the king or the commander in chief, she said thank you very much I am well connected, she also had influence.

When we talk about great, we are actually talking about the opposite of small, so the moment you hear great, you know it is the opposite of small.

The Bible gives us several examples to let us know what we mean by great.

In Matthew 2 v 10 when the wise men saw the star that they have been following from the East, standing over a particular house, they had great joy, that gives you a rough idea what great means.

In Mark 4 v 25 the Bible says a great multitude followed Jesus that is another form of great.

In Matthew 5 v 35 the Bible refers to Jerusalem as the city of the great king.

Again this is talking about greatness in another form.

So we can have greatness in quantity, in quality and we can have greatness in influence and we can have of course greatness that combines all of them.

One thing I am sure of today is that somebody will leave here with great joy and great testimonies.

Now expectations depends on many things particularly if we are talking about God and am sure that is the person we are talking about.

Expectation depends on, number one Promise;

If God has made you a promise then you have a right to expect that that promise will be fulfilled.

For example in Genesis 8 v 20 the Almighty God made a promise on which the farmer based his expectation; he said as long as the earth remains seed time and harvest shall never cease.

That is the promise of God that is the basis on which a farmer planting a seed expect there will be a harvest.

Secondly, expectation depends on the track record of the one who promised.

If you are dealing with a man who doesn’t keep his promises, and then if he made you a promise, you don’t expect anything from him.

If you are dealing with a man who in the past said I am going to the right and you discovered he went to the left, the next time when he says I am coming, you will know he is going.

But in Numbers 23 v 19 the Bible says God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent.

Once He spoke you know it is done Psalm 33 v 8-9 tells us clearly that the whole earth should fear before God because He spoke and it is done.

Once He makes a promise you can go to bed knowing it will be fulfilled,

Expectation depends on the resources of the one who has promised.

I can remember one occasion several years ago when all my children were very small and all of them held a meeting in the room, they didn’t know I was watching them and they sent the youngest one to me and said go and ask daddy what he wants for Christmas.

That one came and said “what do you want for Christmas?” I said what can you afford? Because I know he hasn’t got anything. He ran back to the people in the room and he came back and said “just ask for anything” I said “what about an aero plane?”

He ran back and he said “no, no! That is not the kind of things we are talking about.

But Glory be to God we have a God who is completely unlimited.

Psalm 24 v 1 says the earth is the Lord and the fullness thereof.   Haggai 2 v 8 says silver is mine and gold is mine.

In case you want me to complete my story, the fellow came back and I said get me a pen. “What kind of pen?”  He went back and told his people. Then he said Daddy please loan me so much, he collected my money to buy me a pen.

Glory be to God!  God does not need a loan from you to get you a thing.

Expectation depends on one, promise, two, on the track record of the one making the promise, three, on the resources of the one who is making the resources, and of course, on  the ability of the one making the promise to perform.

Jeremiah 32 v 27 the Almighty God said behold I am the God of all flesh is anything too hard for me?

Again I remembered telling you once upon a time I was visiting my people at home in Ilesha and one little boy ran to me and say “Lagos Daddy, I want a pair of shoes for Christmas.

And I said done, I will buy it for you. He ran to meet the others who are playing outside that I have got shoes for Christmas, he hasn’t seen it but he believed it firmly.

Then one of them replied and said me too I have new shoes for Christmas and they ask him “who said so?”  He said “my father!” they said your shoes are joking shoes.

They know that his father hasn’t got money for new shoe he hasn’t got the ability to perform.

Lagos Daddy, if he says you will have shoes you will have shoes.

Now there is an heavenly Daddy and he is saying to somebody here today, “I will meet all your needs”.

So expectation depends on promise; the track record of the one who promised the resources of the one who promised, the ability of the one who promised to perform and therefore faith on the side of the one who is expectant.

The Bible tells us that faith is the evidence of things not seen.

Hebrews 11 v 1 evidence of things not seen, I haven’t seen it yet but I know who promised, I know his track record, I know his resources, I know his ability to perform.

How?

You will see immediately again the link between faith and expectations.

Because faith can be in categories; you have great faith, Matthew 15 v 21- 28 tells us the story of the woman who came to Jesus and said “help me my daughter is grievously vexed of the devil”.

Jesus didn’t answer her and she kept on crying and the disciple said Lord Send her away her noise is disturbing us.

And Jesus said “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel and the woman kept on pressing until Jesus said “I cannot give the bread of children unto dogs” the woman said “no problem but this dog is not going home at least without a crumb, Jesus turned to her and said “woman great is thy faith.

She had great expectation because at least she got what she wanted.

Of course there is little faith in Matthew 6 v 30 the Almighty God talks about people of little faith.  And then there is no faith at all and you find that in Mark 4 v 40 the Almighty God talked about the disciple he rebuked of having no faith.

So we have great faith, little faith and then no faith, somebody with great faith can go home with great expectations fulfilled and the one with little can then have little expectation and of course the one with no faith cannot expect anything at all.

So expectations therefore are in categories, remember we want to talk about great expectations, expectations is determined by faith, so great faith will produce great expectation, little faith will produce little expectations.

No faith will produce no expectation at all.

Is there anyone who never have any expectation of something good?

We have example in the Bible, take Esau Genesis 25 v 29 -34 he was the first born the blessings of the first born suppose to be double of any other person but then he was hungry and his brother cooked Pottage and he said  give me food and his brother said “give me your birthright.” he said what does birthright mean to me, he did not expect anything good to come to him, even though he was the first born so he sold his birth right just for a plate of pottage.

You may be amazed if you know how limited the expectation of some people are.  I still remembered like yesterday something that happened more than 60 yrs ago when I was very young, one man was quarrelling with his ward because the ward refused to go to school and when everybody gathered and said “what is the noise about?”

The man says this boy said he doesn’t want to go to school.  And so they asked the boy, “Why don’t you want to go to school?” he said “I have told him all I want to be is a truck pusher.

He said that is all he wanted to be. Of course if all you want to be is a truck pusher then why do you need to go to school?

But I know deep within me that there is somebody here seating before me here whose determination is to reach the top, if you are the one let me hear you say amen.

And then from no expectation we can have little expectation in Luke 7 v 1 -7 Peter fished all night caught nothing,

Jesus came into the boat preached, when he finished preaching he said to Peter launched into the deep and cast your net.

Peter said I have fished all night I have caught noting, there is no fish here today I will try tomorrow, however because you say so, not that I expect anything to come out of it, I will cast one net.

His expectation was little he thought well maybe he will catch a fish or two but he caught so much fish in that one net that his boat and the next boat were filled and they were sinking.

Even if your expectation is little the Almighty God will still meet you at that level, but I pray that your expectations will be great in Jesus name.

Little expectations requires divine mercy, the Almighty God can meet someone with little expectation.

I know there are probably some people who have prayed over an issue again and again here and they have not seen any result.

I know there some people who have been believing God for something since January and they are wondering is this not November.

The one whose mercy endures forever will meet you at your point of needs tonight in Jesus name.

Several years ago we were talking about going to Israel and one of my house help said well with God all things are possible one day I too will go to Israel.

She said it as if to say, “they say God can do anything”, she wasn’t expecting much but there was an America lady who was visiting who asked the person next to her what the house help said (because my house help spoke in Yoruba) and they interpreted it to her.

And the American lady said I will sponsor her.

I want to decree to somebody here tonight from the direction you are not expecting help will come to you in Jesus name.

And then great expectation, do you know when you read 1 Samuel 17, you can read the whole chapter but maybe you can take it from chapter 34 -37 to get the point.

By the time David stood before king Saul and he said don’t let anybody be afraid of this giant I am going to kill him.

And they ask him you are a little boy how are you going do this great thing?

He said no problem I know who my God is.  I know his track record, a lion had attacked me before, I killed the lion, a bear had attacked me before I killed the bear,

This Goliath will be just like one of them. Do you know that even before David got to the stage, he had already asked the people standing by what was the reward for the one who kills this giant?

In order word as far as he is concerned it’s a settle mater that he was going to win, he was already asking for the reward.

And I have good news for someone here tonight, in less than a year from now you will stand here and say great is the God that I serve.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight he said your sickness began when you backslid he ask me to tell that if you return to him completely the sickness will fade away.

Daddy says your dreams are extremely big he said but I will fulfill all of them.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight he said before the end of the year you will have more than one reason to dance.

In 2 King 2 v 9-15 Elijah asked Elisha he said what do you want me to do before I had been taking from you.

And this boy had an extremely great expectation, he said I want a double portion of your spirit, even Elijah had to say what kind of boy are you?

You have seen me call fire down from heaven not once not twice, three times.

Anytime I want I just say fire come and it comes and you say you want more than that?

The boy says I want double.  Great faith leads to great expectations and do you know what?  Great expectations will lead to great manifestations, because that boy got what he wanted.

I have told you before, that several years ago, I asked the Almighty God I don’t want to be an ordinary Christian.

I don’t want to be an ordinary pastor.

I don’t want just the normal something, I  want something extra ordinary.

I want double the portion of the anointing of Elijah, double the portion of the anointing of Elisha, plus double the portion of the anointing of Peter, plus double the anointing of Paul, plus double the anointing of Jesus Christ while he was here on earth.  Add everything together and double it again.

I know you will say you must be greedy, but the word of God says covet earnestly the best gift.

Is there anyone here tonight who want to say father, give me greater power than you have given to Adeboye, anybody here? Are you sure? So be it in Jesus name.

Elisha said I want double portion of your spirit and he got it; search the scriptures, Elijah performed seven notable miracles; Elisha performed thirteen before he died and in order to make the whole thing complete his dead bone raised the dead.

So he completed it, his master did seven , he did fourteen.

I pray for every one of you who are here today who are my children in the name that is greater than any other names you will be greater than I.

Now great expectations require some efforts on your part; in Mark 2 v 1-12 the Bible tells us that some four boys brought a man to Jesus, they heard that Jesus was in the house so they brought their friend.

When they got to the front door, they found that the place was jammed with people, the doors were blocked, the windows were blocked but they had this great expectation.

If only our friend can get into the presence of Jesus, we know he will be healed.

We carried him in we won’t carry him back, they has that expectation, so when they got to the place and saw there was no way in they climbed into the roof and broke open the room.

Now when you read it briefly like that you don’t get the real impact. Climbing to the roof from outside required an effort, carrying the heavy body of a sick man, that is an extra effort and then they broke the roof of another man’s house without his permission.

You know the Bible says from the day of John the Baptist the kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent takes it by force.

Some of us wants great miracles from God and we don’t want to make an effort at all.

That is what I was saying concerning the congress in December, some of us want the  miracles to come to us via the television screen or video screen, they don’t want to make an effort at all.

We want to seat in the comfort of our sitting room and expect that you will get the same blessings as the one who made an effort.

Great expectation requires great efforts.

And of course you know the rest of the story; the Bible said Jesus saw their faith.

Faith can be seen through actions.

In 1 Samuel 17 v 40-48 when David, David had already boasted I am going to kill you I am going to cut off your head.

David, but he didn’t stand still, number one he selected smooth stones, five of them! Incidentally when you search the scriptures you will discover Goliath have four brothers who were also giant.

So the Holy Spirit was guiding the hand of David as he was picking the stones. So in case, Goliath should fall and the brothers should say we want to revenge there is  enough stones for each of them.

Our God is more than sufficient.

And the Bible tells me that when David saw Goliath coming, David ran to meet him.

Great expectation will require great effort.

2Corinthians 9 v 6 the farmer who has great expectation of a harvest will sow bountifully.

If you think the ground on which you are sowing is not going to produce much then you don’t want to waste your effort.

But if you know the ground is fertile then you sow in proportion to your expectation.

So great expectation will require one, effort on your part. Two, divine faithfulness.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight he said there is a flood coming your way not of water but of miracles.

1 Samuel 17 v 49 -51 David said  I will kill you, I will cut off your head, but do you know that when he said I will cut off your head he had no sword in his hands?

But the Almighty God provided the sword, God knows fully well that the neck of Goliath is not a small neck; an ordinary sword is not going to cut off that neck.

So God had already provided a sword big enough that big head from the neck and it is the sword of Goliath himself.

When God has seen your faith he will take over from there.

I assure you before the sun rises tomorrow you will sing a new song.

Now when ask people to pray, you can sense from the way they pray whether they are expecting something or nothing.

Intense thirst will produce intense prayer, intense expectation will produce intense petition, if you expect God to answer your prayer you will pray.

I Told some brethren in far way Malaysia earlier this year, there was a world conference on prayer and they said they have heard about what God is doing among us here.

So they asked me to come and talk and I told them the reason people don’t pray is because they don’t expect an answer.

The reason we pray is because we know he will answer.

How many of you really believe God will answer you tonight. He will answer you today in the mighty name of Jesus.

Several year ago, at about 1984 I heard about the great work God was doing in South Korea through the ministry of a young man called Doctor Youngi Cho.

At that time he had the biggest church in the whole world, four hundred and fifty thousand members.

So I went.

I didn’t have much money and you know how much it must have cost to go from here to South Korea.

I wanted to go, so I cried to God and he provided the ticket.

And I listened to this man, I wanted to find out his secret; what made him so successful in ministry.

Of course he taught us about several things like house fellowship and other things but he kept on coming to one thing;  Prayer! Prayer!! Prayer!!!

In fact he brought a whole mountain into which they dug little, little holes where people can crawl into and pray.

People came from all over the world, then they took us on tours on the mountain to go and pray, after they release us to go and pray.

I had a lot to pray about because I was tired of laboring in vain.

Is anybody here tired of laboring in vain? Your failure will end tonight in Jesus name.

So I was in that hole and I was praying and of course I forgot myself.

By the time I checked myself, I discovered I have been in that hole for about two hours, I discovered that I was the only one left, because they were waiting for me, thank God am a black man because they discovered one black man was not there.

And they were upset with me, “why have you kept us waiting?” I said “am sorry, I thought we came here to pray”.

They said “yes but are you going to pray everything in one day?” You don’t know what brought me; I mean they were so upset nobody spoke to me all the way back to the hotel, which was very good because I wanted to continue with my prayer.

Today, you can see the result.

How many of you believed that the Almighty God will answer your prayers?

In Mark 10 v 46 – 52 when Bartimeaus heard that Jesus was passing by, he cried out, they asked him to shut up , he said ” you don’t need help, I need help, keep quiet and let me cry out because this is one single person who I know will solve my problem.

He had a great expectation and it was revealed in his prayer.

And so that bring us to our case study the woman with the issue of blood that I read to you in the text Mark 5 v 25-34

The Lord said there is someone here he said the invisible hand that is stabbing you in the chest have been removed, therefore the pain will not return.

Thank you father!

The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said I will make your progress like that of a car going downhill; easy and fast.

The woman with the issue of blood, number one, had heard about Jesus, that there is a prophet in the land, He is healing the sick, He is opening blind eye, He is solving problem.

She had heard and Romans 10 v 17 says faith come by hearing and hearing by the world of God.

She had heard so faith was born in her and then she said with her mouth if I can just touch the helm of his garment I know I will be made whole.

Romans 10 v 10 says with the heart man believes and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.

Matthew 12 v 34 says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

Like I said before your faith, your hunger will determine how you will pray. And then she made an effort, she didn’t sit down expecting Jesus Christ to come to her house, she came.

She came in the press behind, you put it in the modern language, she forced her way through until she touched the helm of his garment.

James 2 v 17 says faith without works is dead, been alone. You have great expectation you are expecting God to do mighty for you.

It will require an effort and then of course God will do the rest, because as soon as he touched the helm of the garment of Jesus Christ, power flow through to her.

Proverbs 24 v 14 said there shall be a reward. You make an effort, the reward will come!

It is that passage that says your expectation shall not be cut off.  There will be a reward!  You make an effort God will respond because Hebrews11 v 6 says God is a Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Don’t forget the word diligent, he is a reward of those who diligent seek him. He is the one who answer the prayers of those who pray diligently, he is the one who reward the effort of those who made the effort diligently.

Now, what then can I expect as a child of God?

With faith in him, knowing full well that when he promises he will keep his promise, forever oh lord your word is settled.  Psalm 119 v 81.

Thank you Lord!

The Lord said there is someone here tonight he said you have been dreaming of rain he asked me to tell you your shower of blessings will soon begin.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said those who threaten to subdue you shall fail.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said you are closer to permanent victory than you can imagine

Daddy says it take a shout of expectation to bring down the wall of Jericho and he asked me to tell you, you praise me and see.

Thank you Lord!

Let me hear somebody shout a really big halleluiah!

What can I legitimately expect as the true child of the living God? Quite a lot but I will just give you few of them based on his word.

Number one, I can expect healing?.

Because 1 Peter 2 v 24 says by his stripes you were healed. Not by his stripe you are going to be, it is by his stripe you are already healed, if he says I have already been healed.

I have every right to expect my healing will come.

How do you want your healing?

I will explain.

I know that may stand to be a tricky question but I had gone to pray for a man before who was coughing very badly and I said sir, how can I help you?  You know what he said to me?

He said “man of God, I want you to pray that the cough will be going down little by little”.  Little by little!?

So when did you want it to vanish?  Little by little?

Do you want your healing little by little? So how do you want your healing?

Number two,

I have a right to expect to live the rest of my life in divine health, I can expect never to be sick again.

Why?

Based on the promise of God, Exodus 15 v 26 He says to me son/daughter, if you hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God to observe and to do all that he commands you this day, I will bring none of the disease I brought on the Egyptians upon you, for I am the lord that heals you.

He says if I obey him he will be my physician, I have a right to expect that for the rest of life I will not know sickness again.

And I am believing God for someone here tonight; though you might be sick now, before the sun rises you will be well, and for the rest of your life you will not know sickness again.

But how are you going to die if you don’t know sickness?

You don’t have to be sick to die.

At least I know an uncle of mine who went to church on Sunday, it was thanksgiving Sunday, he sang he danced, he had a wonderful time, went home took breakfast and the wife began to prepare launch and as they were pounding the yam he decided to go into the toilet.

When they finished pounding the yam they came to knock at the door of the toilet and said come out the table is set. When they open the door they found that he has gone home, that is the way to go. No ache, no pain!

That is the way to go.

My own will be slightly different; it is going to be on Sunday, I will go to church, have a wonderful service, eat pounded yam and go.

That is the way! I have a reason to expect divine health.

I pray for every one of you here today, the grace to obey God for the rest of in Jesus name. Therefore the grace to enjoy divine health for the rest of your life receives it right now in Jesus name.

I have a right to expect total security, based on the word of God Isaiah 54 v 17 says no weapon formed against me shall prosper.

No weapon! It doesn’t matter the name of the weapon, he said when he comes to you it will no prosper. it is the word of God and I can tell you stories upon stories.

The very first year when we were here trying to build our little tent, the expressway then were just at the headquarters of the high way robbers.

So they were robbing people every day on the expressway. And because this is the only place when there was a little  light then, not now when light is everywhere.

People will run, on one occasion they ran to the camp they came to the carpenters and the workers. And they followed them to go and collect their loads from the car.

They will throw something, the tire will puncture, people will run away and the robbers will take whatever they want.

But the police men had arrived before my boys got there and they laid ambush, so when they saw my boys coming they thought they were the robbers and they cock their guns and the leader of the police patrol said fire!

And the guns refused to fire, they said it again nothing happened.

I decree tonight for the rest of our life no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper. I decree tonight no weapon fashion against me shall prosper.

Great expectations;

I have a right to expect overflowing blessings. Deuteronomy 28 v 1 -2 the Bible says again provided I will obey and hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord my God to observe and to obey and all that he commands me.

I have told you there is a level where God will begin to bless you so much you will begin to run and you will be saying God this is too much, God will tell you I have not even started the blessing will begin to follow and overtake you.

I decree tonight there be somebody here even before the end of the year, who will say father, this blessings is too much in Jesus name.

I have a right to expect victory without a fight.  Deuteronomy 28 v 7 says they will come against you one way, they will flee seven ways. He says God will cause those who rise up against you to be smitten before your face, you won’t do the fighting, you just wait and see the salvation of the Lord.

I have a right to expect a right to enjoy victory without a fight; I have a right to expect the kind of prosperity that will flow to nations. Deuteronomy 28 v 11-12 says never to bow, he said as a matter of fact you will be lending to nations.

And I want to thank God for all of you who are here who are supporters of this ministry.

You may not know it but you are already lending to nations, because by the special grace of God now The Redeem Christian of God is in more than 160 nations of the world.

They called us poor, they say Nigerians are poor, but by the grace of God we are taking the gospel to the world because God promised that we will learn to nation.

Now I want to decree to someone here tonight; very soon you will come to me and say sir, how much do we need for missionary work this year?

I have a right to expect that not only would I be promoted but my promotion will be permanent.  Deuteronomy 28 v 13 says clearly, you will be above only and not beneath, you will be head and not tail.

That is permanent promotion because it is one thing to be promoted, it is another thing to get there and stay there. But it is in the word of God that you have permanent promotion.

And of course I can go on and on, on several passages but as a child of God; I have absolute right to expect a mansion when I get to heaven.

Now take note I didn’t say if I get to heaven, I say when I get to heaven.

And in the mighty name of Jesus Christ I am going to be there. And I know I will see you there in Jesus name.

Why?

Because Jesus Christ said in John 14 v 1- 3 in my father’s house there are many mansions there.

He said if it were not so I would have told you.  He said I am going to prepare a place for you and when I have finished preparing the place, I will come for you.

He is coming for me again! How many of you are expecting  Jesus to come for you again? And the reason he hasn’t come yet is that he is preparing the mansion.

Now there are some highly educated theologians who said no, no, what is written there is not mansion, what is written there is hut. I said hut! In heaven!

If you want a hut you will get one, but I am going for a mansion. How many of you want a mansion? You will get your own there in Jesus name.

For those of you who are old members of the church I have shared with you again and again, long ago God had already showed me my own mansion; it was still being built, they have not completed it then and I have not seen it now for a while.

So I don’t know how big it is now, but what I saw was so big that if you stand on one end, a man at the other end will be like an ant and they were still building.

And that is more than thirty years ago now. And when I asked the Lord, this is where you need to pay attention, how many rooms do I need?

Is it not only name, He said every soul you win will have a room in your mansion? Because in heaven your convert will come and pay you visit. So those of you who are not winning souls, listen to me you may get to heaven and found that your mansion is made of only one room because there is no body coming to visit you, you have not won any soul.

Those of you who by the grace of God has been converted to Christ through my little effort, there is a room for you in my own mansion, when we get to heaven you are coming to pay me a visit.

I want you to begin to work hard for your own mansion too, every soul you win has a room in your own mansion and am looking forward to my own.

I don’t know how my own is going to be.

What I saw more than thirty years ago, is already big but at that time they were still building, that is why you find that somebody like me can’t rest.

We finish one program I go on to another. We finish congress, I go on to Let’s go-a-fishing.  Why don’t you seat down? I want to win more soul.

Those ones you’ve won are they not enough? no , I want my mansion to be bigger.

How many of you are expecting a mighty mansion when you get to heaven?

God will give you one in Jesus name, but make sure you go on winning souls like nobody’s business.

Between the promise of God and the manifestation of that promise, the devil would try his best to see if he can double cross you, you must not allow him!

And I will give you one example and it will be time to pray, that is the example of Joseph

In Genesis 37 v 5- 11 God showed Joseph how great he will become, God gave him a glimpse of how great he will be come because all that Joseph saw was that his brothers, his father, mother bowing down before him.

He didn’t know the whole world will be bowing down before him but God gave him a glimpse, then the brothers became angry, they tried to kill him they failed, they threw him into a well, the water was gone by the time he landed.

They sold him into slavery; it didn’t matter, they didn’t know they were selling him into the fulfillment of his destiny.

He became a slave and when he got to the house of the slave owner he became MD and the devil saw the way these things are going and said I better deal with this boy and set a trap for him.

Genesis 31v 9 -12 And the wife of the master said lie with me, sin so that  your destiny can be polluted, sin so that your destiny can be truncated, sin so that your expectation can be cut short.

But the young man said how can I do this things and sin against God.  There is only one person who can make my expectations come to past I will not annoy Him.

That is why I am making a very passionate plea to you tonight; people have asked me again and again; Sir, why do you keep on hammering holiness?

One reason apart from making it to heaven, no matter how big your dream maybe if you don’t annoy God the dream will come to pass. I know that one

All my friends call me the big dreamer.

I dream big, if I tell you one of my dreams, you yourself will call me the dreamer but I know that as long as by the grace of God I can keep myself pure the dreams will come to pass.

If you will stay away from sin, if you will keep yourself pure all your dreams will come to pass, all your expectations will become manifestations.

Because of the one who promise, because of his track record, because of his resources, because of his ability to perform.

And you know the rest of the story; they threw Joseph to prison but from the prison to the throne, because if the one who promise is faithful, if you are faithful to him, he will be faithful to you.

In conclusion he said in Isaiah 1 v 19 -20 he said if you are willing and you are obedient you will eat the good of the land.

He said but if you refuse, if you rebel, if you will not obey him, he said then don’t blame him for what will follow.

That is why I am making a special altar call tonight. Do you know that all the promises of God for you since you were born can be fulfilled before the end of this month.

Because God is more than able, but if you persist in your life of sin, you will hear other people testifying you will say but I was there that night, how come my own is not there that night, how come my own was not there?

God will tell you because of your sin.

So if you are here tonight and you have not yet given your life to Jesus Christ and you want to forsake the way of sin and you want to begin to live a life that will be pleasing to the Almighty God, I invite you now to come and surrender your life to Jesus Christ.

If you want to give your life to Jesus come now, or if you are a backslider you use to be born again but you have gone back into sin and you want to return to the Almighty God so that you can begin to live a life of holiness you can come also.

As you come, ask Him to be merciful unto you, ask Him to save your soul, promise Him that from now on you will do his will.

Tell Him to just forgive you all your sins and give you a brand new beginning.

The rest of us let us stretch our hand towards these people and pray for them, that the One who save your soul will save their soul also, that God will have mercy on all of them, that God will wipe away all your sins and give you a brand new beginning even as he promised…..

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Savior we bless your name Almighty Jesus we give you glory and honor for your word that have gone forth tonight, please accept our thanks in Jesus name.

You promised, that whosoever will come unto you, you will in no wise cast out, this people have come now, Father receive them in Jesus name.

Have mercy on them in Jesus name, cleanse them in your blood in Jesus name, even as you save their souls tonight write their names in the book of life in Jesus name.

And the grace that will enable them to never to go back into the life of sin give to them in Jesus name.

Any backslider among them restore fully in Jesus name.

My Lord and my Savior I pray tonight that beginning from tonight whenever this your children call unto You, You, will answer them in Jesus name, and let them serve you till the end in Jesus mighty name we have prayed (amen)

I want to rejoice with those of you that have come forward tonight, because by the grace of God from now on I will begin to pray for you, so I will need your name, your address and prayer request. http://www.rccghome.org

    ANNOUNCEMENT

    By the special grace of God next month will be our convention time; the annual convention this year will be from August 6-12th the theme for the convention is COME UP HIGER. The Almighty God is calling some body and He is saying “COME UP HIGHER“.

    And so because of the convention there will be no Holy Ghost service on the first Friday of August because the Holy Ghost service will come during the convention, so don’t come Holy Ghost service first Friday of next month because it will be during the convention.

    The divine encounter and Shiloh hour also  will be the Monday after the convention, not the first Monday but the Monday after the convention.

    GOOD SUCCESS

    Joshua 1 v 8 “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth but thou shall meditate there in day and night,  that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shall make thy ways prosperous, and then thou shall have good success”.

    Not all success is good; Proverbs 1 v 32 tells us that if prosperity is out in the hand of a fool, the prosperity will destroy him; it said the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. So there is a kind of success that can even bring destruction, you will never get that kind of success in Jesus name.

    And not all success last; that is important. I told those who came for Divine encounter last Monday, that it is better never to have been rich than to be referred to as ex-rich. It is a terrible thing to have been rich once and then become poor. In the name that is above every other name, your blessing will be forever.

    When you study the scripture very well, you will discover something about Solomon, he started very well, he was very wealthy and at a stage the bible said he was heaping up gold as ordinary stones, silver was dump in his backyards. But if you read 1 king 12 v 1 -4 you will discover that towards the end of his life because his resource have became seriously depleted he had to taxed the people heavily to be able to sustain his lavish lifestyle.

    That was why when his son came on the throne the people came to Rehoboam and said listen, “we were groaning under your father, will you please make our task lighter” unfortunately, the young man came and said “you haven’t seen anything yet, am going to make things much more difficult for you”. So the people say in that case unto your house oh Israel. I pray for you one more time, that blessing that will not last, will never come your way.

    So when God said if you do the following you will have good success, it tells you straight away that there are successes and there are successes; some success can be good, some can be bad. And he said if you want your own success to be good; this book of the law, the bible, shall not depart from your mouth but you shall meditate upon it day and night. To observe and to do all that is written therein.

    He said if you study the bible very well, you meditate on it and you do what is written in it, he said your success is guaranteed.

    For example if you study the bible you will discover that in Job 36 v 11 he said if you will obey and serve the Lord, then you will spend your days in prosperity and your years in pleasure. If you obey and serve the Lord, you have nothing to worry about, He said all your days you will be spending it in prosperity, your years; you will be spending it in pleasure. When you read Psalm 34 v 12 – 14 David said do you want to live long and enjoy good age?  It is one thing to live long, it is another thing to live long and enjoy it.  He spells out certain thing you must do.

    Number one he said watch your tongue, keep your tongue from evil. Proverb 18 v 21 says death and life are in the power of the tongue.

    Number two he said you yourself depart from evil, Job 28 v 28 he said by fear of God, men depart from evil. When he said depart from evil, if you fear God then according to Psalm 111 v 10. That means be wise, don’t be a fool. You want to live long; you want to enjoy good age? Watch your mouth, fear God and depart from evil.

    Number three he said do good, because of the law of harvest. The law of harvest says whatever you sow you will reap good.

    Then he said seek peace, Proverb 16 v 7 tells you how to seek peace, he said when a man’s way please God he will cause even his enemies to be at peace with him. I pray for every one of you here tonight, all your enemies from now on will be at peace with you in Jesus name. He said don’t just seek peace; he said you are to pursue it. Isaiah 48 v 18 tells you what to do so that for the rest of your life, you will be at peace.

    Because it is one thing to succeed, it is another thing to have peace. Isaiah 48 v 18 says  if only you will hearken to the voice of the Almighty God; listen to him, do what he ask you to do, He said your peace will be like a river.

    Good success! I have had the opportunity of being close to wealthy people and I mean some people who are extremely wealthy. And I am telling you brethren, not all wealthy people are happy people; some people are wealthy and sad, some are wealthy and sick.

    I mean I had a friend, he is dead now, when he died, in his account in Australia alone, we are not talking of the account in England, in America or Switzerland, and there were 68 million dollars.

    That he left in Australia, but do you know what? The only food he can eat is milk. I don’t have 68 million Dollars in Australia or anywhere but give me pounded yam and you will see the glory of God.

    Let somebody shout halleluiah!

    What is the use of having money if you can’t eat, what is the use of being called big if you can’t enjoy what ordinary people can enjoy there are some wealthy people if you see the list of things that the doctor said they must never touch, you will thank God that even though you are not rich, you can go when you want to go.

    Glory be to God!

    Good success has many facets; we could be talking of prosperity without adversity, we could be talking about promotion without the possibility of demotion. It is better never to be promoted than to be promoted today and demoted tomorrow.

    We could be talking about deliverance without relapse. Some people were delivered once but things relapsed. We could be talking about healing without at a scar, healing without a residue. We can be talking about victory without the possibility of a future defeat.

    We can be talking about anointing that will never dry up, anointing that will last forever. And then of course we can be talking about salvation without backsliding, we could talk about several other things but let me go over these seven ones that I have mentioned.

    Prosperity without adversity; Proverb 10 v 22 says the blessings of the Lord makes rich and adds no sorrow. In the name of the one who made heaven and earth, your blessings will be without sorrows. But that depends on you, because I mean the bible is full of examples of those who received from the Lord and then the blessing turned to sorrow.

    The classical example is Ephraim; you know the story of Ephraim, when his grandfather wanted to bless him and Manasseh his elder brother. The father transferred the blessing of the elder brother to the younger Ephraim and within years Ephraim prospered ten times more than his elder brother but he ignored God.

    So that by the time we got to Hosea 4 v 17 God said Ephraim has joined himself to idols, leave him alone! And then God said in Hosea 5 v 9 he said Ephraim shall be desolate. The blessing that God has pronounced on you will never become a curse.

    How do you have prosperity without adversity? The blessings of the Lord makes rich and adds no sorrow with it. However don’t forget God because he said in Deuteronomy 8 v 17 -18, when prosperity comes when you begin to live in houses you didn’t build, when you begin to drink from well you didn’t dig, when wealth begins to change hands; don’t begin to say that it is the power of my hands that has got me this wealth.

    He said you must remember it is God who gives you power to get wealth. You want his blessing to last? You want his prosperity to be without adversity? Don’t forget God. Don’t forget who is prospering you.

    And how do you show him you don’t forget him? You put him first in everything Malachi 3 v 10 he said if you rob him of his tithe he said he will place a curse on you, he said but if you bring all the tithe into his house, he will open the windows of heaven and pour you a blessings so that there won’t be enough room to contain.

    Put him first, in Genesis 22 v 1 -18 when God gave a test to Abraham; “I gave you a son in your old age, I know you loved him, let’s find out whether you love him more than you love me.

    He said go and sacrifice him to me” Abraham obeyed but before he could kill the boy, God intervened and then God said, because you have done this because you have shown me you feared me more than your son, you put me first, he said I swear your blessing will be irreversible.

    When we talk to you about first fruit and you think it is a pastor way of making money you are making a great mistake.

    When you put God first he makes sure that your blessing is irreversible, put him second and then you will see what will follow.

    Have told you several stories, there are many, many I could tell you but I will remind you of just one. One young man came to me and said “God has answered your prayers”! I said amen! What happened?

    He said one big chief called him in Lagos and said he wants him to sell his house; the house had thirteen flat, twelve of them a regular flat and then a pent house on top.

    The chief said all I want is so much money, how much you sell it that is your own look out. He said “Daddy! God has answered your prayers, he said from that deal alone, I am settled for life.

    I said “congratulations, thirteen flat?” He said yes, I said good!  That means you will give one of the flat to the Church.  He said why? I said at least tithe of thirteen could be 1.3 but we can’t have point three of flat. He said this is first breakthrough now, let God wait. Am happy you said ha!  But some of you are like that.

    A week later he had got a buyer ready to pay far, far higher than what the owner wanted.  He asked the chief “where do I pay?”  The man said “what are you talking about?” He replied and said “your house that you asked me to sell, I have gotten a buyer; the money is ready now, just tell me where you want me to send the cheque”. The man said “Whatever charm you used on me has been destroyed who told you I want to sell my house?”

    When we talk about tithe some of us thinks ten percent is too much to give to God, wait till you compare ninety percent of something to hundred percent of nothing. The blessing that will last forever, may the Almighty God give you in Jesus name.

    Number two; Promotion without possibility of demotion, it is better never to have been promoted than to have reached the top and then be demoted. We have several examples; King Saul in 1 Samuel 15 v 1 -30 King Saul was a nobody until the Almighty God grabbed him and turned him to a king; he became a king and stopped obeying God. God said fine, I made you a king; I will remove you as king.

    You know many at times when we read 1 Samuel 2 v 8 we love to quote verse 8 the Almighty God is able to pick up a beggar from the dunghill and raise up until he begins to seat among princes. I always say to my friends why you don’t read verse 7, verse 7 comes before verse 8. It says the Almighty God raises up and he brings down, he can lift up one and bring down another, the bible says promotion comes from God.

    1 Samuel 2 v 7-8 he raises one and brings down another, verse 8 says he then picks up a beggar from the dung hill and makes him to seat among princes. Don’t forget who promote you.

    If you don’t forget your promoter then you can stay forever on top. Consider David for instance, one day David was dancing, praising God, 2 Samuel 6 v 14 -22. he didn’t say because he was a king, so he will dance very gently.

    A king must be kingly, David said that is fine, I can be kingly in my palace but when am dancing for God I want to dance. And his wife saw him and said I thought you are a king? Look at the way you have been dancing, how can you dance like that; like an ordinary man?

    You know what David said? “He said I am dancing for the one who made me king. He said woman! You haven’t seen anything yet, I am dancing for the one who took the kingdom from your father and gave it to me. I have not dance yet, you wait and see what will follow.

    One day the Almighty God said to David, in 2 Samuel 7 v 1 16 God said “David your kingdom shall be forever, he said you will never lack somebody to seat on your throne”. Am sure you know that today Jesus Christ is called the son of David, the King of kings himself. David got that position because he didn’t forget the one who made him King.

    When I got born again I was already a lecturer at the university of Lagos, and I realized how close to hell I was, with all my academic knowledge; I saw the goodness of God in my life so I just though what can I do , at least to show this God publicly that I appreciate what he has done for me, so I got permission from my father in the Lord that at least once a year during the convention, they will allow me to sing, dance and recite EWI (Yoruba poetry) that is the origin of Ewi during the convention.

    When I became the General Overseer somebody came to me and said you are our father now, there are things little children should do. He said when you are an elder, you must sit down like an elder, let your children do the singing you seat down, I said thank you very well. As long as my two legs can carry me, as long as my voice can still be heard; I will sing, I will dance for the one who made me the General overseer.

    I will praise Him, I don’t know about you, but is there anyone here who will praise Him forever?

    Sometime ago I was abroad in a world conference, big men of God all over the world was there and they invited a small man like myself and I went with my tambourine and one of the big preacher came to me and said “what are you doing with a tambourine, you are not an ordinary member of the choir, you are suppose to be the general overseer, is that not what they called you?. Lord have mercy!

    Brethren when I became General Overseer; the staff of the Bible College I think we were about three, there was one man who was the principal, I was coming in as an additional teacher and another fellow.

    Today by the grace of God in Nigeria alone, the staff of the Bible College, full time and part time is more than five hundred. Now you ask me not to praise God, and you ask me not to bless God, do you think am crazy? Is there anybody here who wants to be great forever? Jump on your feet and let me hear you shout a big halleluiah!

    Promotion without demotion; don’t forget the one who has promoted you. Don’t forget.

    Deliverance without relapse, we are talking about good success, deliverance without relapse. It is a terrible thing for someone to have been delivered before and then we say the thing relapsed.

    The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said i observed the way you praised me. He said “I will make sure you always have something to praise me about”.

    Thank you daddy.

    He said there is someone here tonight, he said in future when they talk about from grass to grace they will use you as an example.

    Thank you father!

    He says in particular there is someone here, urine just comes out of your private part you can’t control it. You just keep on urinating; if you laugh you urinate, if you cough you urinate, he asked me to tell you he has taken care of that.

    Matthew 12 v 43 -45 Jesus Christ said if an unclean Spirit goes out of a man, he will be going through the dry places looking for somewhere to rest.

    If he can’t find a place he will say let me go and check my old house, when he went back and found the old house empty, then he would said I met some evil spirit while going, they  too have no house, then he will go and bring seven of them and he said the end of the man will be worse than the beginning.

    I pray for every one of us that God has delivered from forces of darkness, our deliverance will be permanent in Jesus name.

    But what do I do, so that my deliverance will be permanent?

    Ask Mary Magdalene Luke 8 v 1 -3 when God set Mary Magdalene free, she became a divine treasurer. What she uses to serve the devil before, she now use it to serve the Lord.

    Ask the mad man of Gedaren Mark 5 v 1 – 20 the bible says after God set him free, he came to Jesus and say I will go with you everywhere. Jesus Christ said no! Go and advertise me. Do you know that those who are always advertising Jesus Christ never get into bondage? If God sets you free and you keep on telling other people about him, He will make sure that you remain free.

    What about healing without any leftover; many at times, when you go to the hospital for a particular hospital problem, that problem may be solved but there are almost invariably some side effects.

    I used to be a victim of malaria fever and I had an uncle who was a very good doctor, he’s gone to be with the Lord now. He will tell me “for your fever take this, take this and this and I will take it and the fever will go.

    But then later on I will have a little bit of stomach discomfort and I will go to him, fever is gone but what about this stomach discomfort. And he will say that is the side effect of the medicine you have taken, but there is a God who can heal you without any side effect, he will give you permanent healing today in the name of Jesus Christ.

    In 2 kings 5 v 1 – 14 when God healed Naaman, the bible said his skin returned to him as that of new baby, there was no scars left, no signs at all that he ever had leprosy. There is a God who can guarantee that once he heals you, you will remain healed. Exodus 15 v 26 says i am the Lord that heals thee.

    If you will hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all that he commands you he said he will make sure no disease will come upon you.

    It is possible to healed and remain healthy forever and I am praying for all of us who are here tonight; in the mighty name of Jesus Christ after tonight no more pain, no more ache in Jesus name.

    But take the example of Naaman; how come this man who was a leper was cleanse so much that his skin is like that of a new born baby, I mean this man came as a leper, he went home glowing like a new born baby.

    What do we noticed about him?

    Number one, He humbled himself before God; initially when they say go and wash in Jordan. He was angry and he was going home angry (what is wrong with this person, I thought he will come out, lay his hands upon me and call upon the name of his God).

    Many of us wants to dictate to God how we want to be healed; some of us come and say unless the G.O lays his hands on me, I won’t be healed. Sorry!

    That is not the way God does his things, the bible says he sent his word and his word heal them. As his word is coming to you now, be healed in Jesus name.

    Number two, he followed instruction to the letter; “deep yourself seven times” at the sixth time he still came up a leper until the seventh time.

    Anytime you want to do anything for God, follow instructions! For example; when you want to give God an offering, God says he loves a cheerful giver, if you can’t give cheerfully, don’t give at all. If you do, there will be no returns.

    That is why when you hear its offering time, wise people, people who knows how God operate begins to rejoice because God loves a cheerful giver. God is not a beggar, follow instruction to the letter.

    And then after he was healed , he came back to testify, he came back to the man of God and said look at me; I was a leper when I was going, look at me now, I am well.

    When we say it is testimony time, it is amazing how few people came forward, we those who comes forward are many by comparison to other places. But there are hundreds of thousand, who has received miracles from God who had never testified. It is when you testify that God put a seal on your miracle so that the enemy can never steal it from you.

    He came back to testify and he told the man of God, for the rest of my life I will serve this God.

    You want your healing to be permanent, humble yourself, follow instruction to the letter, testify and of cause serve God till the end.

    The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said you will understand. He said the Lion that is trying to choke you shall die this month.

    John 5 v 2 – 14 You remember the story of the man who was sick for thirty eight years, when Jesus healed him, he told him go and sin no more else something worse will happen. You want your healing to be permanent? Go and sin no more.

    And then what about victory without a defeat, victory is no good if it is going to be followed by defeat, victory loses its value if its followed by defeat. There used to be a boxer and I am telling you, nobody wants to be called ex champion, the best thing is to be called the undefeated champion, and I decree to you in the name that is above every other names, for the rest of your life you will be undefeated champion.

    Look at the example of Joshua in Joshua 6 v 20 he led the children of Israel, they shouted, they made just one shout and the well of Jericho fell. Then we got to Joshua 7 and they came against just one small town called Ai and the people of the town chased them and slaughtered 46 of them. Joshua who was lifting himself high was shouting; there is nobody like me, God you are great, he fell on his face because when victory is followed by defeat, victory loses its value.

    So what do I do so that I will be victorious all the time?

    Number one; make sure that you are not your own enemy, because the most dangerous enemy of all is when you are your own enemy. I have always told us Romans 8 v 31 says if God be for us, who can be against us.

    When we ask that question everybody says nobody, until one day I said to my children, let’s open the bible where is nobody written? All that the bible says is who can be against us question mark? That means the question was not answered and the reason the question was not answered is because if God be for you the devil cannot be against you; resist the devil and he will flee from you. If God be for you demon cannot be against you; you are to cast out demons.

    If God be for you herbalist cannot be against you; because every weapon fashioned against you shall not prosper. But if God be for you and you are against yourself, then God have mercy. And as I have always told you before you sing that beautiful song, let God arise and let his enemy be scattered , find out that you are not one of the enemies, because when he arises; all his enemies will scattered.

    You see we love to quote the bible, we quote the section that is beautiful for us and we forget the underlining principle.

    Maybe one of the reason God trained me as a mathematician before calling me into the ministry, is because he know I will know that formulas only work when they satisfy certain conditions, so when I come across Deuteronomy 28 v 7 he says the enemy that rises against you shall be smitten before your face, they shall come against you in one way they shall flee seven ways.

    Beautiful passage! but is there any condition for that ? the condition is in verse 1; if you, the one that God is going to fight for, if you will hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God to observe and to do all that he commands you, then any enemy that comes against you will be smitten before your face.

    They come against you in one way they see God behind you and they flee seven ways.

    Many times I had prayed my wife and I, we had fasted we have prayed for some people and when we don’t get the answer we want we begin to query God. Father what else can anybody do? And God will say my children you don’t know all the story; the fellow you are praying for is not who you think he is.

    I will tell you one story; one very important chief somewhere in this state was sick and his friend, very close friend of his came to me and said please, he is a very good man; he has built a church for the town, he has done this, he has done that come and pray for him so he will be well. So I went, sir “are you a Christian?”, he said “I have been a Christian before your mother was born”.

    “Have you really surrendered your life to Jesus?” He said look at that church, I built that one, there is another one over there I built that one.” “That is not what I am asking for, are you a Christian?” So he said “I am a Christian”. I said “yes sir”.

    So I prayed, a week later I went, no improvement at all. So I said I know what I will do; I took two of my prayer partners and I sent them to the place.

    And I said I want you to stay there for seven days, the water you are going to drink there take it from home, no food, no drink from his house. Fast and pray for him. They fasted and prayed after seven days I went to check, no improvement.

    I said I know what I will do, I will handle this case myself personally, I will fast I will pray nonstop for 21 days until he gets well. Then God spoke to me and said “son, if you want to fast it’s alright. Fasting is good for you but don’t fast for this man because you will be wasting your energy. But “Lord why?”

    He says ask him the following questions and God gave me seven questions to ask him, the man who claims to be a Christian; how many secret society people do you belong to? How many people have you killed? I said “God, How can I ask these questions?” God said “ask. You are the one who wants to fast for twenty one days”.

    I went to him and say “I am sorry sir, its God who asked me to ask these questions…” by the time I got to the seventh question, he asked me to go away that he will send for me. The next information I got from him is that I should never come back there. Of cause I never went back.

    You want a miracle from God? Hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God. To observe and to do all that he commands you.

    I travelled last month and I saw a notice in front of a church and it says “The Ten Commandment Is Not A Multiple Choice” you know the meaning of that? God did not say choose any one of the ten, you are to obey all.

    When you obey all, then the enemies that comes against you becomes the enemy of God and God knows how to handle his own enemies.

    What about anointing that will never run dry; it is better never to be anointed, than to have an anointing that will run dry. Anointing is wonderful, Isaiah 10 v 27 says anointing destroys yoke, anointing makes you untouchable.

    The Lord said there is somebody here, he said wherever you go people you have never met before looks at you strangely; you can see the way they are looking at you and you feel uncomfortable, he said this is because the enemy has put a mark on you, he asked me to tell you, he has erased the mark.

    Anointing makes you untouchable 2 Kings 1 v 9 -12 when the enemies came and they said they wanted to arrested Elijah, he roasted them. And if the enemy says there have grabbed you, they can’t hold you Judges 15 v 14 – 15.

    When they brought Samson bound to the Philistine and the anointing of God came upon him the fire of God destroyed every yoke and it is a thousand of the enemies that perished. But if anointing dries up then the anointed becomes a victim in the hand of the enemy Judges 16 v 18-21.

    When Samson lost his contact with God, the enemy took him and pluck out his eye, I pray for every one of you here tonight, the anointing of God upon your life will never run dry in Jesus name.

    How do I make sure that my anointing will never run dry?

    All you have to do is to stay connected to the Almighty God, stay connected to the source of the anointing. Take Elisha for example in 2 King 2 v 1 – 15 everything Elijah did to persuade him to stay back, he said no sir, where ever you go I will go, you are my spiritual father, everywhere you go, I will follow.

    No wonder even after he died there was still enough anointing left in the bones of Elisha to raise the dead. It is a terrible thing to have been anointed once and then become ex anointed. That is why I always warn those who are in deliverance ministry in particular; if you go into deliverance ministry, for God sake be Holy because every demon you cast out is going to report you to the devil.

    And the devil will say I know, leave him alone now, he is hot but keep watching him, if he ever becomes cold then we will deal with him. The fire of the Almighty God that is surrounding each and every one of you will never go out in Jesus name.

    What about salvation; salvation without backsliding, it is better not to be saved than to be saved and then backslide. There is nothing as terrible as an ex Christian.

    The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said he has decided to take you to a level where your present success will be like child’s play.

    The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said very soon your nick name shall be BLESSING.

    2 Peter 2 v 20-22 says when somebody has been saved before and he backslide it is as if a dog went back to his vomit, that is a horrible picture. When someone who used to be a child of most high God, you said I will never go back into sin, I will not lie anymore, I won’t fornicate any more, I won’t drink anymore, I am not going to smoke anymore and then you backslide and go back to those things he said it is like a dog and after some time he says vomit is food.

    That is why David cried, David knew the pain of someone who has lost salvation Psalm 51 v 12 one of the things he cried for is that “restore unto me the joy of thy salvation.” The Devil knows how to deal with a backslider.

    When you read Luke 15 v 11 -24 it tells you the story of a prodigal son which is a classical example of a backslider. Initially the boy was having a wonderful time but the joy of the backslider will never last, very soon adversity came, all friends turned against him.

    He wanted to eat the food given to pigs they wouldn’t even allow him that was how bad things got before he decides to return to his father. I pray that every backslider will come back to Jesus tonight in Jesus name.

    What do I do so that I will never, never backslide? Philippians 2 v 12 says you are to work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Whatever you do brother, whatever you do sister, don’t lose your salvation.

    Whatever the temptation the devil will bring your way, tell the devil “I cannot afford to lose my salvation. Colossian 3 v 1 – 4 says focus on things above not things beneath, seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and every other things will be added, and please if you don’t want to lose your salvation, keep wining souls. John 15 v 1 -2 Jesus Christ said I am the vine my father is the husband man, I am the vine you are the husband man, every branch that does not bears no fruit, he takes away.

    There is a backsliding that can never be healed. This is the backsliding caused by God himself, God is constantly watching every child of God. Are you winning souls? You have been born again for one year; how many souls have you won. You have been born again for ten years, how many souls have you won?

    One day God is going to say this fellow is a fruitless branch cut it off. When God is the one who cut off somebody, nobody can replant. That is why I thank God for those of you who went out on the 2nd June to win souls, may God bless you mighty in Jesus name.

    But don’t go out only one day; make soul wining your life style. Let’s do it every day, let us find at least a day in the month when will all go out and win souls, those who are constantly wining souls never backslide. And those who don’t win souls, sooner or later they will backslide.

    We are talking about good success, we are talking about prosperity without adversity, we are talking about healing without scar, we are talking about deliverance without a relapse, we are talking about the blessing of the Lord that makes rich and add no sorrow, we are talking about promotion with the possibility of demotion, we are talking of all the victories God can give you so that so that you can be forever an undefeated champion.

    We are talking about anointing that will never run dry, we are talking about salvation without backsliding.

    Good success, but the Journey to Good Success begins when you surrender your life to Jesus, because Philippians 4 v 13 says I can do all things through Christ which strengths me.

    If only I have Christ, I can succeed and keep on succeeding forever and ever, because he will keep on supplying the strength.

    That is why if you have not yet given your life to Jesus Christ, you better do so tonight. You cannot begin to succeed and desire Good success if you have not given your life to Jesus Christ.

    So if you are here and you have not yet given your life to Jesus Christ come and do so now. If you are a backslider come back to him now, he will restore you this time and the restoration will be permanent. So if you want to give your life to Jesus or you are a backslider and you want to be restored back to him, come forward now.

    As you come ask Him to be merciful unto you, ask him to safe your soul, ask him to be merciful unto you. The rest of us, let us pray for this people that the savior who saved our souls, will save their souls also, pray that God will wash them clean in his blood and wash away all their sins.

    Pray that the Almighty God himself will write their names in the book of life and give them a brand new beginning, intercede for them. If you are a backslider, call on God to restore you fully, tell him to help you return to full fellowship with him…

    In Jesus mighty name we have prayed, Almighty God I want to bless your holy name. Thank you on behalf of these your children who have come forward tonight. I want to thank you because your word is forever settled, you said in your word, that who so ever will come unto you, you will  in no wise cast out, they have come to you now father, please receive them in Jesus name.

    Forgive them in Jesus name, have mercy on them in Jesus name, your blood that cleanses from all sin, let it wipe away all their sins in Jesus name. Even as you are saving their souls now, father, please write their names in the book of life and don’t let them ever go back into the world in Jesus name.

    Every backslider among them, restore fully in Jesus name. I pray that from now on anytime they call upon you, you will answer them in Jesus name. Thank you my father and my God in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen

    From now on by the grace of God I will be praying for you, very soon you will be receiving miracles, including miracles you didn’t even ask for, and then you will know somebody must be somewhere praying for you and that somebody will be me.
