Alpha, Omega

Alpha, Omega

Alpha, Omega

You are worthy of our praises today

You are worthy of our praises today

Father Almighty we want to bless Your holy name; You are the Alpha, You are the Beginning, You are the Omega, You are also the Ending; thank You for the ending of 2020 and thank You for the Beginning of 2021; Father we thank You for the ending of a decade and thank You for the beginning of a new decade, please accept our worship in Jesus’ name.

Lord God Almighty, in this first Holy Ghost Service of 2021, in all our lives please do something new. And we are praying specially for Your children born in the month of January, in every facet of their life give them a new beginning; a new beginning of joy, of success, of anointing, of a closer work with You, bless them mightily, bless every one of us.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let someone shout hallelujah.

Welcome to the New Year 2021, and in case there is any of you that have seen in this year and I am sure quite a few of you, I will love to say Happy New Year to you all, and I will want to say Happy New Decade in Jesus’ name.

My prayer is that this year will be far far better than last year for you; and this decade will be a tremendous decade of joy and success for us in Jesus’ name. My prayer is that we will love God more, we will know Him better and we will serve Him much more than ever before.

Today, we are looking at God Bless You Part one, and the text for the series is in Genesis chapter 1 reading from verse 26 to 28:

26And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over ever creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

May I decree to someone straightaway, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ you will have dominion.

27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

The theme like I told you is: God Bless You.

Like I said when I was announcing this theme to you during the Congress, this has to be from God, because I were to choose a theme along this line, I probably will have choosing: The Blessings of God, or the one who is blessed of God – something along that line.

But here, God said clearly, the theme is God Bless You.

That tells me straightaway that God is about to bless someone, and I believe even if He is only blessing two people, I will be one them.

Now, what we want to do today is just to define the theme – God Bless You; we want to lay the foundation for the other days that will come for the same theme.

There are only three words here – God, Bless, and You

So, we will start by defining, who is God?

And then, we will move on to word ‘Bless’ – what does it mean to be blessed?

And then, we must find out, who exactly is ‘the you’ that God has in mind?

Who is God?

There is something that they call the Law of First Mention.

In other words, if you want to know something about someone, or something you want to find out when was this fellow first mentioned, or when was that thing first mention.

I mean, for example, the first time Elijah was mentioned was in 1King chapter 17 verse 1: And Elijah the Tishbite, the inhabitant of Gilead, etcetera etcetera

And that is very important because the first someone or something is mentioned, will tell you a lot about the person.

So, when was God first mentioned? Where did you hear about Him for the first time?

Of course, is in Genesis chapter 1 verse 1: in the beginning God…

In the beginning God…

So, if you want to talk about God, you will say God is the one who was in the beginning.

But when you read Ephesians chapter 1 from verse 3 to 4, says, blessed be God who has chosen us before the foundation of the world.

We are talking about in the beginning, and in Genesis chapter 1 verse 1 says God created the heaven and the earth, but here, Ephesians is telling us He has been active before the foundations of the earth.

So, who is God?

God is not the One in the beginning, He was the One who had been before the beginning began:

The One who has been before the beginning began,

The One who chose you before your father and mother met,

The One who chose you before your village was established,

The One who had been there before your nation was.

As a matter of fact, Psalm 90 from verse 1 to 2 says God, You had been our help long before; it said from everlasting to everlasting You are God; it said before the mountains were brought forth You are God.

I found that one very refreshing, because He was before the beginning began, He had been there before the mountains began.

In other words, it was in His presence that mountains came; no mountain came before God.

Which explains Mark chapter 11 from verse 22 to 24: have faith in God; then, tell mountain to jump into sea and they will obey you.

Because if you have faith in the One who was before the mountains, then, you can command the mountain and this God who knew the beginning of the mountain will uproot the mountain.

So, I have good news for someone, someone that God is going to bless, that this year, all your mountains will jump into the sea.

I mean, let us at this thing a little bit; let us consider Mountain Physical.

Consider Joshua chapter 6 from verse 1 to 20, the day lay the foundation of wall of Jericho God was there.

They lay the foundation in His presence, so, when they wanted to pull down the wall, he went to the foundation, and that is required to get rid of that obstacle was just to praise God.

Which we explain to you the reason while at the beginning of any program I keep on asking you to shout hallelujah.

So maybe you want the foundation of your own wall of Jericho to fall down, how about shouting a big hallelujah to Him.

When you read Acts of the Apostle chapter 16 verse 25 to 26, you will discover that the Bible said when Paul and Silas were praying and singing praises to God, there was an earthquake that force open the prison doors.

When they were building the prison, God was there.

He knew the foundation of the prison; so, when the time came for Him to shake it so that the doors can be forced open, it was easy for Him; all He needed was to hear somebody praising Him in that prison.

But then, let go from Physical Mountain to Marital Mountain.

When you read Genesis 29 from verse 30 to 31, the Bible tells us when Rachael was barren.

The barrenness of Rachael did not happen behind the back of Go, He knew while Rachael was barren.

So, when we got Genesis chapter 30 from verse 22 to 24, the Bible said God remembered Rachael.

He just took the key that He used to lock the womb, and in a moment the womb was opened.

You know, each time I read that passage, I tremble a little.

Why?

Because it said, God remembered Rachael.

Remember!

As a Mathematician, each time I get a word I want to check; you will understand mathematics best when not just looking at the word but looking at the opposite.

You mean God forgot Racheal for a while, that He just locked the womb and kept the key somewhere, and continue to do other things?

But a day came He remembered.

In the Name that is above every other name, every one of you that God had forgotten, He will remember you today.

Let us talk about Mountain Spiritual.

In Joshua chapter 6 verse 26, the Bible said Joshua pronounced a curse on Jericho, and the curse went straight to the source of their rivers, poisoned their river, and from that day onward there was barrenness, there was death, there was sorrow in Jericho.

So, in 2Kings chapter 2 verse 19 to 22, you see something very strange happening when the people of Jericho came to Elisha, and said Sir, our city is beautiful as you can see but we have problems,

Elisha did something.

Now, the question I want you to aske is this: where is it written in the Bible that Elisha read that anytime the city comes to you asking for help, ask them to bring salt, and then, go and put the salt at the source of the water?

Who told him?

Where did he get that information?

He never learned that from Elijah; there was never a time Elijah ever asked anybody to go and bring salt for anything.

But there is a God who was there when there was a curse pronounced on Jericho; that God now is the One who whispered to Elisha.

Thank God for the ministry of a Prophet

And he went straight to where the trouble was, apply the salt and made a pronouncement.

Today, in the name of the One who sent me, I am making a pronouncement, every curse in your generation shall be destroyed.

You may want to write down your prayer number one at this stage and it is simple.

Father, please pour Your salt into my source, and change every curse in my life into a blessing.

Then, we continue.

Who is God?

We know now, He is the One who was before the beginning began.

Now, when we want to know someone, you also want to know them about what they did, there achievements, what they accomplished.

So, when you see somebody and that person is an Engineer, you know what that mean – this fellow had graduated in an Engineering school.

We are talking about real Engineers now; there are all kinds of engineers today.

When somebody, when you say somebody is a Doctor, you know this fellow had graduated from a Medical School.

And this time now, I am not talking of doctors of watches, I am talking of the real Doctors.

So, when you want to know about somebody; when you say, who is he?

People say is a Doctor, is an Engineer, is a Survivor, you will have a rough idea who you are talking about.

What did God do?

Again, the issue of first mention, Genesis chapter 1 verse 1: in the beginning God created.

And in John chapter 1 from verse 1 to 3, the Bible made it clear, He created everything.

In the beginning was the word, the word was with God, the word was God…

Verse 3: by Him were all things made; there was nothing made that was not made by Him.

He created everything.

Okay, He created everything, what are the implications of that?

We won’t be able to consider all, but we can at least take one that is crucial.

Because He created everything, everything must obey Him – everything; He created them all, He owns them all, He has rule over them all; everything must obey Him!

Mark chapter 4:35 to 41 says what manner of man is this that even the wind and the sea obey Him?

Why do they obey Him?

He made them.

That is while when He said to the storm: peace be still, the storm went to sleep.

Because He made the wind, He made the sea, that were mixing together in troublesome manner, creating the storm.

So, I have a rough idea that God is about to still the storms in the life of some people this year.

In Joshua chapter 10 from verse 12 to 14, the Bible says the sun and the moon who obeyed Him, they stood still.

For almost a day, the sun refused to set; the moon refused to rise,

Why?

Because the One who created them commanded them to stand still.

I don’t if you can receive this, but I am saying to someone, before the sun set tomorrow, your miracle will arrive, and until your miracle arrives the sun will not set.

In Isaiah chapter 38 from verse 1 to 8, the Almighty God says, sun, go backward, retrace your steps.

I am sure you know the meaning of that.

You know the whole story.

It was the story of a king that God said you are going to die, and he said, God I don’t want to die,

God said, alright, alright, let us push back the sun, let us give you extra fifteen year; let us renew your youth.

I know that some people Doctors have told you you have already passed the age of miracle, I am trusting God, the Doctors will be surprised this year because your age shall be renewed, the sun shall be pushed back.

In Daniel chapter 3, you read it from beginning to the end, you know the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

They were thrown into the fiery furnace, and to let us know that the fire was not the small one, and the Bible says, the furnace was heated seven times, I hotter than usual that fire still consume those who threw in Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego into fiery furnace were consumed.

But the fire obeyed God as far as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

The fire may burn in the world this year, is not going to touch you; you will walk through the fire the fire will not burn you.

Why?

Because the fire must obey God because God made the fire.

In Daniel chapter 6 from verse 1 to the end, the Bible commanded lions not to eat Daniel.

And to prove to us, it was not that the lions were tamed, it was not that the lions were full of food, because lion normally don’t kill except, they are hungry.

As they pull out Daniel, they brought in those who threw in Daniel, and the lions were so hungry that they did not even allow them to reach the bottom of the den before the finished them.

You know the implication of that, your enemies are in trouble this year – the very lion they were planning we destroy you might swallow them.

But let us get a little closer home, and Luke chapter 3 from verse 1 to 5, the Bible talks about a man with withered hand.

Jesus saw him, told him to stand up, and he stood up.

He told him to stretch forth his hand – a withered hand; a withered hand cannot be stretched.

But had was obeying the One who created him, the hand that was withered obeyed God.

Is anything in your life that has withered, any good thing that has withered, in the that Name that is above every other name, it will be restored this year.

In John chapter 9 from verse 1 to 7, the Bible tells us about a man who was born blind, and the One who created all things, created brand new eyes for him.

I am looking at a lot of creative miracles this year, and I just want to remind you because some of you probably have forgotten, some of you never heard about it.

It is a testimony of a brother several years ago when we held Holy Ghost service at the National Stadium Surulere, and the word of God came that there is somebody here you have only one kidney left because one had been removed by operation,

And the one left is already giving you trouble, and God says don’t worry I AM giving you two brand new kidneys.

If I did not know the voice of God, I will not there say that.

But there was a man there who had exactly that problem in detail; Saturday morning as soon as the programme was over, he went straight to the hospital where they removed the first kidney by operation and told them I want you to examine me.

And the Surgeon said, I remember your case, the day we were removing your kidney everything went wrong, it took us eight hours, the operation that was supposed to be for just less than one hour, it took us eight hours, remember your case.

Examine me, and the found two brand new kidneys.

Are you in need of a creative miracle?

That will be your prayer number two.

You are going to cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, speak to my body and everything that is damaged beyond repair replace it; give me a creative miracle.

And then, we are still talking about God.

When you are talking about a man, when you want to know a man, you don’t just want to know when first mention, what he did, you want to know what he said.

Today, there are some men of old that we never met; some of us are too young to meet them – Aristotle, Socratics; or come a little closer home – Shakespeare

We remember them by what they said.

So, what was it God said the first time He ever spoke?

What was it He said?

This is important because blessings and curses are usually pronounced.

The first time He spoke to man in the text that we read, He said in Genesis chapter 1 verse 28: He said I bless you – that was the first thing He said to man.

But what was the first He ever said?

Genesis chapter 1 verse 3, on record, it is written that God said let there be light, and there was light.

Haa!

So, what do we learn concerning Him about this?

It means when He speaks it is done.

Psalm 33 from verse 8 to 9: let the whole fear before God; why? He spake and is done.

So, the One we are dealing with is someone who when He speaks it is done.

According to Isaiah 55 from verse 10 to 11, the Bible says the word of God shall not return to Him void.

So, what He said at the beginning mean a lot to us.

What was it He said?

Let there be light.

Physically speaking, in Mark chapter 10 from verse 46 to 52, when Bartimaeus said I want to receive my sight,

He simply said, receive your sight, let there be light and there was light.

And in the Name that is above every other name, every one of you with eye problems, before the end of this month, you will testify.

Spiritually, when He says let there be light, of course, He simply saying darkness should leave this fellow alone.

Mark chapter 5 from verse 2 to 19, He said mad man of Gadarene, that man who used to be mad, be free – darkness get out of him.

In the Name that is above every other name, darkness will leave you alone this year.

But there is something a little deeper when He says let there be light,

He simple means let sorrow cease.

You say, haa, how do you get that one?

Because in Psalm 30 verse 5, He says weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.

Let there be light means let there be morning; let us cross over from night to morning, and let sorrow give way to joy.

I mean, in Luke 7 from verse 11 to 15, when Jesus Christ said to the widow of Nain when she wants to bury her only son, when He said weep not,

The meaning of that is: sorrow cease.

And from that day onward that woman never wept.

In the Name that above every other name, those of you who have been weeping every month, no more weeping.

That is while I want you to write down you next prayer point.

Simply say: Father, please command an end to darkness in my life. Just command darkness to leave me alone.

Now, the next point we want to look at before we look at the word Bless is the question: Who really has an authority to bless?

We know God is the One who has been from the beginning began; we know Him to be the Creator of all; we know that the first time He spoke, He spoke light into existence, but when we are talking about blessing, we want to know who has an authority to bless.

It is only God who can bless.

Number chapter 23 from verse 19 to 20: Balaam said, I have received the commandment from the One who can bless, and He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.

Is God we have been talking about, He is the One who has the authority to bless.

But He delegates His authority to some people, because you know to bless is the opposite of to curse.

He gave the permission to some people to bless or to curse.

Particularly when se are talking about a woman for instant.

Your father has so much authority over you that according to Numbers chapter 30 from verse 3 to 5:

God Almighty says if you make a vow to Him, to God Almighty, and your father heard you lady that you made a vow to God,

And he says I cancel the vow; God says the vow is cancelled.

That is frightening.

You father has so much power and so much authority over you, and it is not only the girls alone, is just that it is girl that is mentioned here, that he can even cancel your vow to God.

But he has the power, the authority, delegated by God to bless you.

Genesis 27 from verse 30 to 33, you know the story, when Esau came after Isaac had already blessed Jacob, and Isaac discovered that he had made a mistake, he said to Esau: I have blessed him, and he shall be blessed.

So, when your father blesses you, you are blessed.

God can delegate His authority to bless you to your father, which is while I pity those who have no father, and so they miss the father’s blessing.

The husband of a woman has the delegated authority to bless the wife.

In Numbers chapter 30 from verse 6 to 8, God said, if a woman makes a vow to God and the husband heard on the day she was making the vow and said he disallow the vow, God says the vow is disallowed.

You will find it there – Numbers chapter 30 from verse 6 to 8.

So, the husband has the power to bless or curse the wife.

For example, you will find a very sad story in Genesis 31 from verse 25 to 35, when Jacob was running from Laban, and Laban pursued him, caught up with him; after there discussion he said, you are running away from me, why are you running away with my gods, my idols?

Jacob said, idols! What did I want to do with your idols?

He was not aware that Rachael has stolen the idol of her father and sat on it.

So, Jacob said, whoever stole your idol that fellow shall die; and the man searched and could not find the idol and left; but a pronouncement had been made on Rachael.

The next she was to deliver in Genesis chapter 35:16 to 20, she died during child labour.

May I encourage every Christian husband, constantly bless your wife, because if you do it she will be blessed - constantly bless your wife.

And then of course, God can give the authority to bless to your spiritual father because the spiritual father is a representative of God.

I am talking of genuine one; I am not talking of any fake prophet.

For example, in 2Kings chapter 2 from verse 9 to 15, when Elijah was about to go and he told Elisha, what do you want?

And Elisha said I want a double portion of your spirit.

He said, haa, that is beyond me, you have asked a hard thing; but quickly he tied the hand of God: if you see me when I am taking away from you, you will get what you want.

When you read that passage, you will read again and again as when they said, the mantle that fell, the mantle that fell from Elijah.

Because when God came to pick up Elijah, as he was going, he whispered to God: I promised that boy o, if he sees me, he will get the double portion.

And God said to Him, then while are you going with the mantle, drop it for him.

Your spiritual father has tremendous power to bless, and of course, tremendous power to curse.

I pray you won’t do anything that will deserve a curse.

You will remember the story of one of my sons I told you before, an electrician.

When I was in Ilorin, have just crossed to the University, they gave me a big house for residence, but there were a lot of electrical fault there.

So, this my son came, fixed everything; and then I say how much is it going to cost me?

He said no, all I want is just give me enough money to get back to Lagos because I had nothing on me, and then pray for me.

I told him; you are not going to take any more?

He said how can I charge my father?

I said in that case you don’t need prayers: God bless you – that’s all I said and gave him the money to travel.

He came to Lagos, as he was coming down at the motor park, saw an old friend that were in Technical College together: hey, where are you? Where have you been?

Oh, I am now working in Government house in Lagos.

And you?

I am practicing my electrical something something.

Come and see me tomorrow.

To cut the long story short, the man who had to borrow from a pastor to travel back to Lagos, within two weeks he bought a brand-new car.

You next prayer now, and that prayer will be: Father, please bless me through my spiritual father tonight.

Because there are moments when your spiritual father may be reluctant to make that pronouncement.

I have told you the story before.

I was at Heathrow and I was carrying two cases, the two carry on weight is much more than the original luggage that I checked in because I was traveling economy and there is a limit to how heavy your box can be.

And then, I saw two of my children, Daddy, how are you; good morning, good morning; and one of them ran at me and collected the two-heavy thing from me.

So, I turn to him and say God bless you.

And the second one who just greeted me and was strolling away and say Daddy you did not say God bless you.

I said, what for?

What for? What did you do?

So, you better pray that God will bless you through His servant tonight, and He will give you the grace to do what will cause you to deserve the blessing.

Now, let us move to the word ‘Bless’.

What is a Blessing?

Basically, the true meaning of a blessing is something good giving to you over and above your basic needs.

In Yoruba land, they translated the word perfectly.

They call it in my mother’s tongue ‘Ibukun’.

That means, it takes a big container, deep it into something and added it to you.

Adding something good to you when you already have your basic need met.

The blessing is something extra.

For example, everything that man can ever need, was already in place before man was created, everything man can ever need.

Good food – Genesis chapter 2 from verse 8 to 9.

Money – Genesis chapter 2 from verse 10 to 12 – high quality gold, even though there was nothing for him to buy; he did not need to buy anything.

Amazing, isn’t it?

Even God created day and night before He created man, because he will need to sleep.

Psalm 127 verse 2, He gives His beloveth sleep.

There are certain basic things that God has put in place – basic needs, they are not even qualify has blessing because they are basic.

For example, when God was talking to Adam and Even in Genesis chapter 1 verse 28, He did not say be healthy.

You read it; you find out that He did not say be health.

Why?

Because being healthy is basic.

He did not say be rich.

Why?

Because abundance is basic.

Psalm 23 verse 1 to 2, He maketh me to lie down in green pasture.

The pastures are green.

He asked me to lie down, no hurry.

Abundance is basic.

Psalm 35 verse 27, the Bible says He has pleasure in the prosperity of His people.

You know what the means?

He is displeased when you don’t have abundance.

Psalm 34 verse 10, the young lions do lack and suffer hunger; they that seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.

It is written.

But then, when we say blessing, what are the details?

Genesis 27 will help us; Genesis 27 you can read it from 26 to 29, but the blessing began from verse 28.

When a father, the one who has delegated authority from God to bless, was speaking, he said to a son, God give you of the dew of the heaven.

What does that mean?

God send help to you from above; let the heavens corporate with you; let the heavens assist you.

If you look at our special song for this Holy Ghost Service, you will see there: I am blessed because God has asked heaven to make sure I succeed.

Psalm 121 from verse 1 to 2, David said, I will lift up my eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help; my help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.

He said God give you of the dew of heaven, help from above and give you of the fatness of the earth.

He is saying, no fruitless effort allowed because the earth is to yield you its increase.

Psalm 24 verse 1, the earth is of the Lord and the fulness thereof.

Ecclesiastics chapter 5 verse 9, the Bible says the profit of the earth is for all, that even the king is served by the field.

It is not everybody who gets the profit of the earth.

The earth, not only does it produce food; gold is from the earth, silver is from the earth, crude oil is from the earth; iron that you need for pillar is from the earth; everything: what you need to build cars, to make aero planes, to produce electricity, everything is from the earth,

And God is saying the fatness is of the earth, he ate.

He went on to say people served thee:

You see, when you are blessed, suddenly, people will begin to serve you.

Genesis 26 verse 14, if you like you can read it from verse 12; it tells you the story of the secret of the greatness of Isaac.

He sowed into the earth; the earth yielded to him the increase and this man had many servants, many people serving him.

And he went on to say, nations bow to thee:

When you are blessed, nations bow to thee.

Read the same Genesis 26 verse 16, the Bible says Abimelech came to Isaac and said sir, I think you have to move on because you have become mightier than we.

You came here almost empty handed, now, you alone, you are mightier than a nation

May that be your testimony.

And then, he went on to say be lord over thy brethren:

That is a serious one.

If I were you listening to this message and I am not born-again, that alone is enough for me to give my life to Jesus, because any member of your family of a Christian who does not surrender his or her life to Jesus Christ, is going to serve the one who gave his life, sooner or later.

Genesis chapter 50 from verse 15 to 18, the brethren of Joseph came to him, fell before him and say we will be your servant.

He went on to say, those who curse you will be cursed.

You know what that means?

Your enemies are in trouble.

If you are blessed, oh, those who oppose you are in trouble.

Isaiah 41 from verse 10 to 12, He said those who are incensed against you, those who say they hate you, they are cursing them, they are creating problems for themselves.

God said you will seek for them you will find them.

In other words, you don’t need to bother yourself fighting, just leave them to go, just get blessed.

And then, he said, those who bless you will be blessed.

That means your friends are in for a good time.

Why?

Because in Genesis chapter 12 from verse 1 to 3, he made it clear that not only we you be blessed, you will become a blessing.

That brings you to your next prayer, very simple.

Father just rain your blessing upon me.

So, in a nutshell then, what does ‘God bless you’ release to you?

Just the statement ‘God bless you’, what would that release to you?

Proverbs chapter 10 verse 22 says the blessing of the Lord maketh rich and added no sorrows.

What does that mean?

Number one: it means you would be rich spectacularly that it will become clear to everybody this fellow is blessed.

Genesis 39 from verse 1 to 5, when Joseph was in Potiphar’s house, because Joseph was blessed, and because Potiphar did not treat him like a slave, was friendly towards him, the house and field of Potiphar was blessed.

Genesis 24:34 to 35, that man said, I am Abraham servant, and the Lord the has blessed my master perfectly, and so, he has become spectacularly rich.

It is not only making you rich that the blessing God bless you will bring to you, He said He will add no sorrow.

Because our God is a God of joy.

Psalm 16 verse 11, in His presence there is fulness of joy.

In Job 38 from verse 1 to 7, the Bible tells us, from the very beginning, God has demonstrated that He is a God of joy.

He said in the beginning when God was laying the foundations of the earth, the morning star stand together, sons of God shouted for joy; they had been joy from very beginning, so much so that the Almighty God delights us in making joyful noises.

Psalm 47 verse 1, clap your hands o ye people; shout unto God, make a joyful noise of triumph.

In Revelation chapter 7 verse 17, the Bible made it clear, God is going to wipe away tears.

When you are blessed, you will become spectacularly rich and take sorrow away from you.

That brings us to the next prayer pointFather, please wipe away tears from my eyes.

That brings us to the last word ‘You’.

Because if I ask now, God bless you, who is the ‘you’?

Everybody will say me – it is me.

Let us find out.

You see, the age before the fall of man is called the Age of Innocence.

So, when God was pronouncing this blessing, Genesis chapter 1, it was the age of innocent.

Everything was fine, until Genesis chapter 3, that is when curse came; there was nothing call cursed at all in the earth until Genesis chapter 3.

Now, the beauty of it all is that salvation returns a man to the age of innocence.

1John chapter 1 verse 7, the blood of Jesus cleanses from all sins.

Matthew chapter 1 verse 21, His name shall be called Jesus because He shall save His people from all their sins.

Galatians 3 verse 13 to 14, Christ has redeemed us from the curses of the law that the blessings of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles.

So, who is You that we are talking about?

The You we are talking about is the one whose sins had been washed away by the blood of Jesus.

Is the one who Jesus has redeemed from the curse of the law,

Is the one who has gone back to the age of innocence as it were,

2Corinthians 5 verse 17 – if any man be in Christ, He is a new creature, old have passed away, behold all things have become new.

Is the one who will obey God now and serve Him.

Job 36 verse 11, if they obey and serve Him (Him there means God), they will spend all their days in prosperity, and all their years in pleasure.

That is while 3John verse 2 says, I wish above all things that you prosper, that you be in health as your soul prosper.

As soon as your soul is in correct alignment with God: obeying completely, doing His will absolutely; you will go right back to Genesis chapter 1 verse 28.

And you are the You that God wants to bless.

Outside that, you are not included.

So, shall we bow our heads then in prayer; just in case there is anyone who has not truly surrender his or her to Jesus, anyone who is not obeying Him completely even though they are pretending to be a Christian,

Anyone who use to obey but his backsliding, who wants to be restored, so that they can be the You in God bless you, if there is any such person, would you please bow your head in prayer wherever you are, and please, please, please, mean business.

 As you cry unto Him now and say Almighty God have mercy on me, save my soul, forgive all my sins, and I will serve You and obey you for the rest of my life; cry to Him.

And I will join you in a prayer of salvation in a moment.

If you are already truly born-again, if you are doing the will of God, please intercede for all those who are crying for salvation now; pray that the one who saved your soul will save their souls also and mean this prayer.

Pray that they will have genuine salvation, that the blood that washed you clean will wash them clean. You are to be a blessing to others. Intercede for them that God will save their souls.

O thank You my Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

My Father and my God we want to bless Your holy name for Your word; we want to thank You for all those who are surrendering their live to You at this moment please receive them all in Jesus’ name, save their souls, wash them clean with that powerful blood of Jesus, write their names in the book of life, include among the You that will bless O Lord.

In Jesus might name we have prayed.

Amen.

Now, those of you who have given your life to Jesus Christ please contact us as soon as possible because I will want to be praying for you from now on. I will advise you to locate a Redeemed Christian Church of God near and go and talk to the Pastor there, and tell him I sent you, that you gave your life to Jesus Christ, and you want to know what to do next; and the Pastor will guide you.

God bless you all.

Now, I am going to pray for every one of you, pronounce God’s blessing upon you after which we will then spend quality time taking the prayer points one by one and cry to God, but in the meantime let us pray.

My Father and my God I want to thank You because when You bless people are blessed. Thank You Lord God Almighty for delegating the power to bless to Your spiritual children, Your servant, the one that You have chosen, Lord God Almighty, to represent You here on earth. Father I am standing before You today as Your representative to this people, and as their representative to You, please my Father and my God, bless them, let them be blessed; blessed them in the morning, bless them in the afternoon, bless them in the evening, bless them in the night; Father just bless them, bless them spectacularly; bless them very very generously. Please Lord bless all Your children. And as they come to you in prayer, grant all their request, answer them by fire.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

God bless you.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Praise the Lord.

We are continuing our study on God Bless You Part 2.

Our text we have been using for our topic God Bless You is Genesis chapter 1 verse 28 – that is the foundational text.

And God blessed them…, I am reading just verse 28 now.

28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the dowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

In our last study, last Holy Ghost service, we told you that there are three words there: God, Bless, You.

We started by defining the three words:

We defined God, or started defining God; and then, we defined the word Bless; and finally, we found out who is You.

By the time we finished last Holy Ghost service, we have come to realize that God Bless You is a very powerful prayer indeed, and since that time when I say God bless you to people, those who use to answer casually now answer with great enthusiasm.

So, now, I am going to start again by saying straight away that God bless you.

Now, when we were defining, because that is where we are still are in this second section, when we were defining God, we discovered that He was the One who was before the beginning – He was before the beginning began.

And now, the Bible talks of a man called Melchisedec (you can read about this Melchisedec in Hebrews chapter 7 from verse 1 to 3), He talked about this man, the one he called the king of Salem, as the one who had no beginning of days nor the end of time.

And the Bible talks about Jesus Christ and called Him a Priest after the other of Melchisedec.

And the Bible also tells us in John chapter 1 verse 1 that in the beginning was the Word (John chapter 1 verse 1), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 

In verse 14 there, in John chapter 1, it tells us that it is the Word that became flesh that dwelt among us, that we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.

So, we find that Jesus Christ who is the representative of God when He came to earth, was the Word from the beginning, was of the order of Melchisedec,

If you want to put it in Mathematical language, we will say He belong to the same set as Melchisedec.

The implication of this is that Jesus who was with God and was God, like Melchisedec has no beginning and no ending.

The big lesson we want to learn from that today which I believe it will give us great joy is that whatever has no beginning, cannot have an ending.

Which put in another way means anything that has a beginning must have an ending - if it has a beginning, sooner or later, it will end.

So, I am decreeing straight away that any crisis in your life that has a beginning will end tonight.

Whatever has a beginning must have an ending, and we are going to look at it from very many perspectives.

For example, Mark 5 verse 25 to 34, the Bible tells us about the woman with the issue of blood; she bled for twelve years nonstop, but because the issue of blood had a beginning, it had an end one day.

Whatever is wrong with you physically that you can remember when it started, will end today in Jesus’ name.

In Luke chapter 13 from verse 11 to 17, the Bible talks about a woman who was bound by the spirit of infirmity for eighteen years; Satan bound her for eighteen years; the Bible said, no matter how hard she tried, she could not straighten up.

In other words, her problem was a problem that could not be hidden; as soon as you see her coming, hey, here comes the woman who is bent double, but after eighteen years, because the bondage had beginning, it came to an end.

In the Name that is above every other name, that reproach in your life, that problem that could not be hidden, that problem the world is using to describe you, because it has a beginning, will end tonight in Jesus’ name.

In John chapter 5 from verse 2 to 9, you know the story of the man by the pool of Bethesda, he had been in that place for thirty-eight years.

For thirty-eight years he suffered sickness; for thirty-eight years he suffered failure, because he said anytime I was trying to get into the pool, I missed it - he failed for thirty-eight years.

For thirty-eight years he suffered defeat – he said the reason I could not get into the pool this thirty-eight years is because somebody beat me to it; I was defeated thirty-eight times in thirty-eight years.

For thirty-eight years he suffered loneliness because he said to the Lord Jesus Christ, I have no one who could help me; he was lonely for thirty-eight years.

For thirty-eight years, this man was going round the circles: he would get up, move towards the pool, before he got there somebody got in before him, and he had to move right back to round zero.

But one day, all these ended, because it had a beginning.

May I on behalf of my Father in heaven decree that those of you who have failed again and again, because your failure had a beginning, it will end tonight.

May I decree to those of you who have suffered defeat, each time you are about to succeed, somebody blocked the way, because your defeat had a beginning, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ it will end today.

As for those of you who had been lonely all these years because there was a time when you were not lonely, so, your loneliness had a beginning, and because it had a beginning, I decree that this very night, your loneliness will end.

When you read Acts chapter 3 from verse 1 to 8, the Bible tells of a man who was born lame and had been at the beautiful gate every day all his life, there to beg.

This man had been stagnant for more than forty years – if you want to know his age, Acts chapter 4 verse 22 says the man was older than forty years: stagnant for more than forty years.

Poor for more than forty years, he was a beggar, until he begged he could not eat.

He had been on the wrong side of the door of the temple; inside the temple there was singing, there was dancing, there was joy, but he was on the wrong side; his life had been a life of hearing others rejoicing and not been able to participate, but all came to an end one day.

Why?

Because even though the problem started from the womb of the mum, because the problem had a beginning, it came to an end one day.

And so, in the Name that is above every other name, every form of stagnation in your life will come to an end today.

Every form of poverty in your life, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, will come to an end today.

Every form of almost succeeding, be so close to success and yet being so far, will end in your life today.

Now, when we talk about poverty, if you read 2Kings chapter 4 verse 1 to 7, you know the story very well:

The widow who was heavily in debt and the creditors have come to take her sons into bondage.

This woman had been poor for a long time, poverty of the highest category; so poor that even when the creditors came, they had nothing they could take in the house to sell to recover what she owe, only the sons were what they thought they could sell.

But she cried to God and in a single day, her poverty came to an end.

It was not that the poverty came to an end alone (that is important to me and you now) it was that she never had to be poor again.

In other words, when God puts an end to a problem in your life, He makes the ending permanent.

So, I am decreeing in the Name that is above every other name that everything that God is ending in your life today, every problem that is ending in your life today would be permanently ended.

Any form of crisis that has a beginning must come to an end, this is clearly illustrated by the story of Job; you know the story of Job very well.

All was well with Job until will read in Job chapter 1 from 6 to 12, when God Himself began to brag about how good was, and the devil said, he does not fear God for nothing it is because God has prospered him, let us give him a test, and that was the beginning of crisis in the life of Job.

But because it had a beginning, it ended.

By the time we got to Job chapter 42 verse 10, the Bible says God turned the captivity of Job and restore to him double everything he had lost.

Bible scholars told us that the crisis in the life of Job lasted only nine months, just a period for a woman to be pregnant and bring forth a child.

I don’t know the kind of crisis you have, because if anybody had a crisis Job had one - physically he had a crisis, materially he had a crisis, maritally he had a crisis because even the wife said curse God and die.

And when he comes to his friends, every one of his friends put a blame on him, this problem can only come you because you must have sin against God, you have some secret sins that God is trying to punish, but all these crises ended in one day.

I don’t know the crisis you have, your crisis might be simple, it might be compound, in the Name that is above every other name, every crisis in your life, because they have a beginning will end tonight.

I know what that gives me hope for my nation Nigeria.

You say how come?

Because terrorism had a beginning, and if anything has a beginning, it must have an ending.

For example, in 1Samuel chapter 17 from verse 1 to 51, the Bible tells us that Goliath terrorize the nation of Israel for forty days, but one day, the terror that started with one man ended when the man lost his head.

So, with all confident I can say that sooner than later, terrorism will be forgotten in Nigeria, and in all other nations of the world where there are terrorists; I want you to have hope because this thing did not started at the very beginning of the nation, so, it has a beginning it must have an ending.

And when you read the story in 2Kings chapter 6, and you read it all the way to 2Kings chapter 7, read the two chapters (2Kings chapter 6 all the way to 2Kings chapter 7) it tells you one thing, no matter how long a siege may last it must end.

And so, in the Name that is above every other name, every evil force that is laying a siege on your family will be put to shame tonight.

Every enemy laying a siege on you as a person, every force saying that they won’t let you breath, they won’t let you move freely, they won’t let you move forward, they won’t let you move upward, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ they shall be defeated.

Every force that is laying a siege on our nation shall be disappointed.

Now, God had no beginning, He began before the beginning, then this automatically leads me to some questions which I asked when I first became born-again.

You know, as a lecturer in the University and full of all manners of Mathematical theories, when I became born-again, I had many questions, questions I dear not ask my pastors.

Because when I ask in those days: where is God?

Of course, they point me to Isaiah 66 verse 1: heaven is His throne, the earth is His footstool; so, God is in heaven.

And those who really wanted to move me deep said now He is your heart now that you are born-again – greater is He that is in you that he that is in the world.

But I have other questions that I did not ask them.

One of the questions was: where was God before He created the heaven?

Because you say heaven is His throne

Okay! I agree, He is seating in heaven.

Where was He before He created what He was seating on?

You say He is dwelling in me.

Where was He dwelling before He created man?

Because I could ask any man, I turned to God Himself.

God knew I was not querying Him, I was just being a curious little child, wanting to know more about my Father.

And He directed me to Job chapter 38 from verse 1 to 4, and the conclusion of it is simple: there are certain things beyond human understanding; your brain is too small to take in everything that God is,

The result of which is Habakkuk chapter 2 verse 4: the Just shall live by faith.

You have to put your brain aside and just have faith in God.

There are several things that God will do for you that will defile explanation.

You cannot find out His foundation; you cannot find out fully His methodology; you cannot keep on asking, how will God do this for me? There are certain things beyond human understanding.

You have no explanation for the lame jumping up to walk; you have no scientific explanation for the blind having two brand new eyes; you don’t have enough capacity to understand the Almighty God.

So, the Just shall live by faith.

And if you are willing to receive Him, then, without asking how, may I on the basis of Isaiah chapter 3 verse 10 says say ye to the righteous it shall be well with him.

May I decree to anybody who is ready to receive it, that how, you may not know; what God will do to bring it to past, you may not know, but your tomorrow will be alright.

Now, let us leave that for now, by the grace of God, if the Lord tarries, we will talk more, we will try to understand God more when we meet for part three.

But then, when we are talking about God, we said there is something that we need to know about somebody who we are meeting for the first time, and that is what he did in the past.

Is he an Engineer? Is he a Doctor? Is he a Lawyer?

But then, we need to do a little more about somebody, not just what he did, we need to know, is he still able to do what he did?

For example, is he an ex-champion?

Because it is one thing to be a champion, is another thing to still be a champion.

And I will illustrate this by using Muhammed Ali of blessed memory – he was my hero; incidentally we were born the same year, and I was a boxer too, not of his class (God have mercy),

But I followed every fight that he fought, at least beginning from Sonny Liston, I can tell you every person that my hero fought.

But then, one day I saw him when they asked him to light the touch for the Olympic, and I saw my hero, the man who used to float like butterfly, as stink like a bee, I watch him shaking blew by the wind; his hand was shaking by the way, it took a special effort to hold on to the touch, and I cried that day.

The question I am asking is: is God an ex-champion?

That is very crucial.

Haa! Glory be to God.

The God who is going to bless is not an ex-champion.

In Malachi chapter 3 verse 6, it says I AM the Lord I change not.

He is a forever reigning champion.

In Lamentations chapter 3 from verse 22 to 23, the Bible tells us that it is of the mercy of the Lord that we are not consume and this mercy is renewed every morning that great is His faithfulness.

He is a reigning champion.

And so, we can then see what He did before, can He do it again?

The answer is yes.

For example, He cured the incurable before – 2Kings chapter 5 from verse 1 to 14 – he cured Naaman of leprosy.

It is because the leper in Matthew chapter 8 from verse 1 to 3, realized that he was dealing with a reigning champion that he said to the Lord Jesus Christ: I know You can make me free; You have done it before, You have not stop doing it, I know You can make me clean if You are willing.

Thank God, Jesus Christ said I AM willing, and He touched him, and he was cleansed.

Meaning what?

As God cured incurable before?

Are you battling with an incurable disease?

I have good news for you that God can do it again.

I can give you two examples very quickly; one of it you probably know very well.

Young man who has cancer and the cancer was terminal and the Doctors, the best Doctors in the UK told the parent, take your son home if you want him to see his native land again.

They brought him to Nigeria, that was in 1983, they brought him to the camp here and he is still alive today.

You see, is he the only one that God had cured?

I will tell you another one, just two will be enough to show you He can repeat Himself.

They brought a lady, very young girl from Akure to the Headquarters at Ebute Metta because they have discovered a big lump in her breast and the Doctors have said this is cancer; the only this we can do now is cut off this breast to save your life.

And the God said, I am not even yet married; a girl with two breasts is even finding problem getting a husband, what do you think will happen to me if anybody discovered that I have only one breast.

They brought her to Ebute Metta, we prayed for her in our office upstairs, she got downstairs and she was about to enter into the car and checked and the lump had disappeared.

She ran back upstairs and said haa Daddy, is gone, is gone.

I said glory be to God.

She asked a question: where did it go?

I said wherever it came from.

May I use this opportunity to decree, every plant God has not planted in you will be uprooted today, because He is a reigning champion.

When you read the story in Exodus chapter 17 and you read from verse 1 to 8, or if you want, read the whole chapter, (Exodus chapter 17 verse 1 to 7):

The children of Israel were thirsty, they needed water tom drink in the wilderness and the Almighty God told Moses, there is a rock there, take the rod, strike the rock, water will come out; he did; water gushed out.

Okay.

In Numbers chapter 20, you can read that one all the way from verse 1 to 12, they needed water again.

Can this God perform the same miracle again?

Read the story there, water came out on the rock again.

He is not an ex-champion, what He has done before, He can do again – He can produce something out of nothing; He can meet your needs in His own miraculous ways; if He has ever done it before, He can do it again.

I have told you stories upon stories of the Almighty God coming forth to prove Himself to be more than sufficient.

I have told you the story of what happened when we were building the very first auditorium, and the carpenter came to me and Daddy we need a thousand naira, and I did not have a thousand kobo.

So, I told him, go, when I have the money I will send for you, and he was going away grumbling: he is the one who will say the work is slow, now, we are asking for the money to continue the job he is not giving us.

I heard the grumbling and so I reported the matter to God: Father, You heard him.

I won’t go to details, but you know the story.

In less than two hours I was able to call him back because I have more than sufficient; I never left office.

Oh, you will say that was 1983.

Yes, I know.

Is God, the same God still able to provide something out of nothing?

Ask me, and I will tell you that when the lock down came, for the first time of my forty years as General Overseer I did not know where I will get the money to pay the salary of my staff,

And I am not talking of three thousand staff, I am not talking of five thousand, I am not even talking of nine thousand,

But the God who provided for the one thousand naira that I needed in 1983, still came through in 2020.

May I decree to somebody that in the Name of that God, that God that I serve, God that is the Unchangeable Champion, all your needs will be constantly met.

May I take one step into the spiritual?

Can He release power to somebody who is thirsty for it?

Because in Acts chapter 2 from verse 1 to 4, on the day of Pentecost He fulfilled a promise He made in Acts chapter 1 verse 8.

Because in Acts chapter 1 verse 8 He said you will receive power when the Holy Ghost is come upon you.

On the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit fell.

Can He do it again?

He did again and again and again.

For example, in Acts chapter 8 verse 14 to 17 – when God started the revival in Samaria and the Apostles went down, and He asked them, have you been baptized in the Holy Spirit?

And they said no.

He laid hand on them and they were all baptized again in the Holy Spirit.

Why am I saying this?

Because for some of us the problem or issue is nothing to do with physical – by the grace of God we are healthy, we are strong.

For some people the issue is nothing material, nothing at all material; some of them, if they withdraw their money from a bank the bank may close down, they are being blessed, they are not interested in all this thing you are talking material.

But they are hungry for the power of God.

I know a few like that, starting with me talking to you.

Because I attended a meeting somewhere, world conference and they saw all that God had done – the revival, the souls being saved, the miracles, the signs, the wonders, the testimonies – and one of them said you must be a satisfied man, God has been so good to you.

I said God had been good, I am grateful to Him, but Sir, I am hungrier than before, I am thirstier than before because I know there is much more that God can do.

And I am sure that there are one or two people that are hungry for the power of God.

That is while I want to use this example.

I love my mum, I loved her passionately because I happened to be her last born, and the only boy, and you know the link normally between the last born and a mother.

So, when I got born-again, I wanted my mum to get born-again too, and when I preached to her, initially she was  me I had been a Christian before I married your father,

When they brought Christianity to our village, I was one of the first people to go in etcetera etcetera; don’t you know my name is Esther.

I say this is not what I am talking about, I am talking about really surrendering your life to Jesus, being born again.

Finally, she surrendered, she yielded.

But still I was not sure when she said she was now a Christian, I was not sure.

So, I knew what will put a seal for me is for her to speak in tongues, be baptize in the Holy Spirit.

And I was visiting Ilesha one day, this was a hunger in my spirit I must pray about, and I dose off in the afternoon, and two of my little girls came to visit me (one of them is listening to me now),

And the two of them were led by the Almighty God to go and minister the baptism of the Holy Spirit to my mum; I did not tell them about it, the just felt led,

And when I woke up from my sleep it was because there was a noise going on.

And what was the noise?

It was my mother speaking in tongues.

Is there anyone here today hungry for more power of God?

Is there anyone here listening to me hungry for fresh anointing?

Is there anyone saying God You have done it before, anoint me afresh, empower me afresh?

He is a reigning champion, if you cry unto Him tonight, He will grant your request.

So, I had planned to go on and discussed several other things about Him, but I have a feeling that the Almighty God is saying maybe this is where I should stop for today.

I am telling those of you who are out there who have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus Christ, you don’t know what you are missing.

Because one of the greatest blessings of being a child of God is that He can fill you till overflowing with His power.

Peter said to the people when he preached to them, he says you repent and you will be baptize and then God will give you the Holy Spirit.

So, if you are listening to me and you want that power - that power of God, that power that can perform miracles, power that can raise the dead, power that can make the blind to see, power that can do exploits for the Almighty God – you must be born-again; you surrender your life to Jesus Christ.

So, if you are listening to me and you love to give your life to Jesus Christ, will you please bow your head wherever you are, and I am going to join my faith with yours and pray for your salvation before the rest of us will go and pray other prayers.

Shall we please pray.

If you want to give your life to Jesus, cry to Him and ask the Almighty God to have mercy on you, to save your soul and wash you clean in His blood that you will serve Him from now on.

And those of us who are already sure of our salvation, will you please go ahead and intercede for your brothers and your sisters so that they too can be saved.

If you are watching this program in your room and you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, it might be a good idea to stand on your feet to show the Almighty God that you are truly surrendering to Him.

If you are watching in a setting that is like a church, it might be a good idea that you walk towards the altar now and surrender your life to Jesus Christ even as I pray for your salvation.

So, my Father and my God I want to bless Your holy name for Your word. I want to thank You for all those who have decide to surrender their lives to You today, please Lord God Almighty receive them all, have mercy on them, wash them clean with Your blood, save their souls Lord, write their names in the book of life; and Lord as they cry to You for anything from now on answer them by fire.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Praise the Lord.

Now, before we go on to prayer, I want to encourage those of you who have given your life to Jesus Christ to contact me as soon as possible so that I can continue to pray for you, because I will need to know your name, your address, and your prayer request. And then, try and locate a Redeemed Christian Church of God near you, and go to the pastor there and tell him you gave your life to Jesus and you want to know something about the next step to take, particularly as you want to learn how to walk with God from now on, and God Himself will grant your request in Jesus’ name.

Now, our prayer point is only two.

Prayer point number one: We just want to thank God like never before particularly since we know that whatever has a beginning must have an ending, and we believe Him, we trust Him that our problems are over now. So, we want to really really go to Him in serious thanksgiving. Thank Him as evidence of faith that your physical problems are over now, your material problems are over now, your spiritual problems are over now, your marital problems are over now. You want to really really thank Him in faith because you know even terrorism will be over very soon.

And then, the second prayer point: for those who are yet to be baptize with the Holy Spirit to cry to God to baptize them with Holy Ghost even today.

But for those who had been baptize with the Holy Spirit before to cry to the Almighty God and say baptize me again with Holy Spirit, with fire; anoint me afresh O Lord, fill me to overflowing.

Thank You Father.

You can go ahead and pray till you are satisfied, and I am sure the One who is the reigning champion, whose power as never diminished, will pour out His Holy Spirit of fire afresh on all of us.

In Jesus mighty name.

Pastor E. A. Adeboye




GOD BLESS YOU (PART 3)5th of March, 2021

Father Almighty God we bless Your holy name. King of kings and Lord of lords, the great I AM, we worship You. We thank You specially for what You have done in the Holy Ghost services for the past thirty-five years. We thank You for what started as a small tree, but by Your grace as grown to become a giant tree, spreading throughout the whole world, we bless Your holy name Lord, please accept our thanks in Jesus’ name. Father today in a very special way give every one of Your children an anniversary gift; a gift so big that we will never forget today.

Father, we are a praying especially for Your children born in the month of March, March is the third born of the year, three is the number of trinity, the number of power, so, we commit all these Your children into Your hands that You pour fresh oil on them, empower them to succeed, empower them to prosper, empower them to do mighty things for You, give them a brand new beginning so that forever the will glorify Your holy name.

Do mighty things today Lord and we will bless You forever.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let someone shout hallelujah.

We want to bless the name of the Lord yet another anniversary of the Holy Ghost services.

Now, thirty-five is a very interesting figure because it is five times seven; and five is the number for grace, seven is the number for perfection.

So, we are taking of five times seven, which means grace times perfection – that is a very serious combination.

Grace, because today God is going to focus His attention on you, not because you are better but because He just want to be gracious.

I mean, John chapter 5 from verse 2 to 9, there was a multitude at the pool of Bethesda it was grace that focus attention on the man who had been there for thirty-eight years, not that he was better than any other person; and interestingly, he was the only one who got a miracle.

The Lord finished with him and moved on.

When He is going to pay attention to one fellow today, who will that fellow be?

I think the answer will be probably me and somebody else.

Seven is the number for perfection and it means that by the time God finishes with you today, two things will happen:

God Himself will look at you and say very good - Genesis chapter 1 verse 31.

And then, He move on to say excellent (that is the second)

Excellent means nothing more to add, so I can now enjoy my rest – Genesis chapter 2 from verse 1 to 3.

Genesis chapter 2 from verse 1 to 3 – the Bible tells us that on the seven day God rested.

I am believing God for someone today that after this special Holy Ghost service, for the rest of your life you have nothing to do other than to thank God because God would have done excellently for you.

Now, we now go to our text; our text is found in Psalm 121 from verse 1 to 2:

You know we are talking about God Bless You, but the subtitle for today is I Will Lift Up My Eyes, and that is found in Psalm 121 from verse 1 to 2:

1I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

That is the text for today.

But when we started discussing God Bless You, we started by defining God and we have not finished defining Him, and of course, we will keep on defining Him, finding out more and more about Him as we go along.

Today, for the purpose of this special Holy God service, we will define God, we will take a look at God from what He Himself called Himself.

Genesis chapter 17 verse 1, He said I AM Jehovah El-Shaddai, the God who is more than enough, the All Sufficient One.

All we have learnt about Him: He was in the beginning; He was there before the beginning began; this is the first time He opened His mouth to introduce Himself – I AM Jehovah El-Shaddai, the God who is more than enough, the All Sufficient One.

Then, in Exodus chapter 3 verse 13 to 14, He also introduce Himself  and said I AM THAT I AM, which according to Bible scholars simply means I AM whatever you want Me to be to you - whatever you want Me to be that is what I will be.

So, take note of these two important definitions of God, how He introduced Himself.

My prayer for every one of you connected to this particular service is that the All Sufficient God we prove Himself in your life today.

And then, of course, we have defined Bless – we already know that.

Bless simply meaning that the Almighty God is summoning all the forces in heaven, on earth, underneath the earth to assist you to reach your goal.

But then, who is you, particularly as today’s topic is concern?

If I say who is the one God is going to bless?

Everybody will say is me.

But who is you?

Because, you see, this matter is about individual perception.

When David was speaking in Psalm 121 that we read today from verse 1 to 2, he said I will lift up my eyes – ‘I’, not ‘we’; ‘my eyes’, not our eyes; from whence cometh ‘my help’, not our help; my help comes from the Lord – ‘my help’.

Individual!

So, who is the You in God Bless You today?

It is an I – a person, an individual.

What kind of individual?

An individual who is in need of help.

Whether we believe it or not, not everybody need help; or there are some people who need help, but they don’t want help.

I will explain.

You know, in that story in John chapter 5 from verse 2 to 9, when Jesus Christ saw the man who had been sick for thirty-eight years and asked him: will you be made whole?

That may have sound a very funny question.

You can see, this man is sick; you can see him laying down here for thirty-eight years; why ask him do you want to be made whole.

Because not every sick person wants to be well!

Really!

We have seen cases.

We have been praying for a woman for quite a while and we found that instead of her getting better, she got worse.

So, we said God, what is going on?

And the Almighty God told me to ask her, ask this woman: does she wants to be well?

And I asked her: woman, do you want to the well?

She said, no.

Why not?

She said, because when I was well, when my husband finishes at the place of his work, he will go to the club house.

Since I became sick, anytime he finished from work, as soon as he finishes from work, he is rushing back home.

Let me remain sick and retain my husband.

True story.

Not everybody wants to be healed; not everybody wants to be free.; not every wants deliverance.

Oh, John chapter 3 verse 19 made it clear, it says the light comes into the world and some people just don’t want light.

I can give you illustrations upon illustrations.

There was another lady too who was in bondage and we prayed for her to free and she refused to be free.

When we confronted her.

She said, what is the problem?

You want me to lose the power that I used to control my husband?

I am telling try stories; the elders here will remember.

She said, I have this power, this witchcraft that when I tell my husband to drive me to house of my boyfriend, he will drive me there; I will ask him to wait in the car, he will wait in the car

I will go upstairs to my boyfriend; we will have fun; when I finished, I will come and meet in the car.

You want me to lose that power?

I pray today that if there is anyone tormenting you, who does not want you to be free, the Almighty God will deal with that fellow in Jesus’ name.

So, the one we are talking about, the one that is going to stand in the position of ‘You’ in God Bless You must be somebody who needs helps or who wants help.

Two: he must know where to get that help from.

True help not force one.

David said I will lift up my eyes unto the hills.

He was not talking about physical hills or mountains; he was talking about the One who made heaven and the earth.

He is simply saying I am going to lift up my eyes as high to heaven as possible.

He says I will lift up my eyes to the One who is the Present Help in trouble – Psalm 46 verse 1.

He is the one who will lift his eyes to the true helper of the helpless, not to force gods or helpers.

I mean, 2Kings chapter 1 from verse 1 to 17, a king was sick, and he sent his servant to an idol worshipping king to go and look for help; Elijah meets these servants on the way and told them to go back.

When finally they met, he told the king, is there no God in Israel that you are sending to Ekron?

He said, here the word of the Lord, you are sick, you will die because you are seeking help where there is no help.

Seeking true help!

The programme of today is for those who want help from the true Help.

Before we met the Lord Jesus Christ, we have sought help, including me before I met the Lord Jesus Christ.

I have told you before when things were beginning to open up – I built a house, I bought a car – and my people say, watch it, we better fortify you, and so they took me to one big baba in Oshogbo, who saw the way I looked at him and decided to disgrace me.

He told me to go and bring a goat, and that I must not carry the goat in my car, I must lead the goat by hand from the market.

Lord God! (laughing) I was a lecturer then at the University.

I led a goat from the market to the herbalist home, and the goat fought all the way.

And the herbalist gave me three charms: tie one to the steering corner of your car and you will never collide with anyone; tie one in the boot and no one will ever collide with you from behind; and then put one under your seat, just in case, if anything should happen, the son of man will just disappear.

I came to Lagos, I did what he said; three times in two weeks, I had accidents.

Nobody taught me before I took all the thing and threw into the lagoon.

Thank God I have found the Helper of the helpless and His name is Jesus.

If you have not found Him, you will found Him today in Jesus’ name.

And the fellow who will be you, the one who is going to be blessed today, must be somebody who is ready to make determined effort to get that help.

He is in need of help, he wants help, he knows where help is, and must determine to get that help.

David said ‘I will’ lift up my eyes, not ‘I may’ – I will.

The word ‘will’ tell you about his determination.

David said Psalm 108 verse 1, he said my heart is fixed within me like concrete - concrete determination.

The one who is going to get help today must be someone who will ask and keep on asking.

Matthew 7 verse 7 to 8, Jesus Christ Himself said you must ask, you must seek, you must knock.

But He says, ask and keep asking till your joy be full – John 16 verse 24.

Seek: you must keep on seeking diligently – Hebrews 11 verse 6: God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Knock and keep and knocking until the door is open – Luke chapter 18 verse 1 to 8.

God has no time for those who pray casually; He has no time for casual prayers.

In Revelation chapter 3 verse 15 to 16, He made it clear, you want to be cold, you cold; you want to be hot, you hot; but if you are lukewarm I will spill you out of My mouth.

When it is time to pray today you must pray diligently; you must ask with everything that is in you; you must seek diligently; you must knock persistently until the door be open.

God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him, not those who casually seek Him.

As a matter fact, God preferred those who are violently diligent, not even casually diligent, but violently diligent.

You will remember the story in Mark chapter 2 from 1 to 12, the Bible tells us of those boys who brought their friend for healing, they broke through roof when there was not room at the door – Mark 2 from verse 1 to 12.

I still remember very well when we were in the first auditorium by the express way, and we are having the Holy Ghost night.

At that particular night God instructed me to get a piece of cloth and that we should anoint it, lay it on the altar; I think I remember that day, we asked two ushers to hold the cloth – one on one side and one on the other side.

And God said that every barren woman should come and touch that cloth; that if they do, that month they will become pregnant.

You said, where is that written in the Bible?

No, it is not written in the Bible; God just spoke to me that is what He wanted done.

Is that scriptural?

While don’t you ask Elisha – it is not written in the Bible that you should go and bring salt in a new cruse and go and throw it into the river and the river will become sweet.

God is the Almighty, He speaks to His prophets; if you have ears to hear you will hear Him, He will guide you.

So, people were coming, and they were touching the cloth and they were going back rejoicing.

I think after some time the ushers who are holding the cloth were tired, and probably they thought that there was nobody left but there was still a woman.

And so, the usher said that is enough and the woman began to scream: why must you stop when it is my turn.

And from the altar I saw what was going on, there was commotion: the woman was not going to allow these ushers to go.

So, I asked what is going and they told me.

I say, haa okay, come; and she came, and I gave her the cloth – just take it.

Ehen! Everybody has been touching, is my turn they said…

And you know, when she was sharing her testimony the following year, she said, she had been told she had no fallopian tubes, but she was testifying with her baby.

She refused to let go until her prayers were answered.

I pray for someone today that rugged determination, that kind of determination that will say God I won’t let you go until you bless me, may God give it to you.

Now, we all know that needs defer.

The problem of one is not necessarily the problem of the other, but that is while God says My name is Jehovah El-Shaddai, the God who is more than enough, the All- sufficient God, sufficient for every need.

What do you mean by needs defer?

Look at Naaman in 2Kings chapter 5 from verse 1 to 14, Naaman was not in need of money, he was not in need of promotion, he was not in need of popularity or success, he was already a successful man, but he needed healing.

The Shunamite woman in 2Kings chapter 4 from verse 8 to 17, she needed no financial breakthrough, she was not sick, but she was barren, she needed help in the area of the marital,

And I thank God she used what she has to get what she wanted.

She cornered the man of God; something told her this is where the man through whom you are going to get help.

Many of you would still remember the story of one of my daughters, in one of the nations of the world (because everybody is listening now all over the world, maybe I won’t mention the name of the country for some of you who know the testimony)

She is a medical doctor, successful one, and she has her own hospital; so, she was not sick, she was not poor, she was not asking God for financial breakthroughs, but she had no husband – nobody has ever said to her ‘sister how now?’

And she made up her mind, we will solve this problem.

She heard that I was coming, so, she cornered the pastor; in those days when I visited that part of the world they would go and hire a car and picked me up at the Airport and the car they asked me to enter into, that is the one I will enter into.

So, she bought a brand-new car, big one, went to the pastor and said I beg you throughout papa tour this time let him ride in my car.

The pastor agreed.

I rode in the car, I did not know what was her plan; she did not tell me anything, I was not aware of her problem.

After I left, she parked the car in her garage, and every night - I cannot remember how many night – she would go, sit where I sat in the car and cry to God: You are the God of the man who sat here answer me.

Six month later she got married; and the next time I heard from her there was a phone call from hospital: do you know that your daughter?

I said yes.

She is in hospital.

I said, what is the problem?

Oh she has just given birth to a girl.

The Shunamite woman used what she had to get what she wanted, violently.

This lady I just referred to used everything she had to get what she wanted.

Now, today, while I am rejoicing with you in advance is that you will not even be crying to God alone, you will not be crying to God unaided,

Everyone listening to me all over the world now and that is the beauty of this thing being virtual, all our members are connected all over the world, everybody is going to join you in crying to God.

Why?

Because in Matthew chapter 2 from verse 19 to 20, the Almighty God said, if two or three shall agreed as touching anything you asked on earth it shall be granted unto you.

You know what?

You have already got two – you are one, by the grace of the Almighty God Pastor Adeboye will be number two.

But it is not just the two of us, there are several others who would cry to God with you because this is a very special anniversary Holy Ghost service.

You see, because everybody needs some form of help; you may be determined to cry but you need help.

Like my daughter I have just mentioned, she needed the help of the pastor, the pastor could have said no, we will hire a car as we used to do and that would have destroyed her plan.

She needed help of a driver, because I would have guessed something is going on, if all of a sudden, the doctor should leave her practice to come and drive me around; I would say what is happening?

Naaman needed help in 2Kings chapter 5 from verse 1 to 14, he knew he needed physical help, he was sick; help came from a house made who told him where help could be obtained: if you can get to my country there is a prophet there, a man of God there who will heal you of your leprosy.

As soon as he had where help will come from, he ran to Israel, got there, he met the man of God who did not come out, he told him do this and you will be made whole.

He was angry and he was about to lose his miracle; another servant came and helped.

You need help and that help we come to you today.

Therefore, are you sick?

Do you need physical help?

Do you want to be made whole?

Lift up your eyes there is some one called I AM the Lord that healeth thee – Exodus 15 verse 26.

He says I AM the Lord that healeth thee, seek Him diligently, forcefully, today, and He will heal you.

In Mark chapter 5 verse 24 to 34, the woman with the issue of blood had tried all doctors, then she heard that there is One called the original Physician passing by, she pushed her way through and got help.

Are you in any form of bondage?

Have sensed that there are certain evil forces hindering your progress?

Seek the One the who is called the Lord of Host.

Psalm 24 from verse 7 to 10, He has never lost a war, and He is willing to be your ally, but you must seek Him tenaciously tonight.

Matthew chapter 15 verse 21 to 28, when that woman came to Jesus Christ and say please have mercy on me, my daughter is grievously vexed of the devil, help.

And Jesus ignored her; she refused to keep quiet.

The disciple said she was too noisy; and she said you have not heard anything yet, I am going to shout louder, until the Lord answered her.

When it is time to pray tonight, don’t pray ladies and gentlemen prayer.

After you have received your help tonight, you can become ladies and gentlemen again, the day you come testify come and speak grammar; speak queens English on the day you are testifying.

Today, ignore grammar, cry for help.

I have told you before, if three people were involved in an accident and they are dying, they take them to emergency world,

And then, one of them said, I mean, the doctors should know that I need help while do I need to open my mouth just like some people would say; God knows that I need help, I don’t need to pray.

The second one said, well, I think there are three of us, maybe I better talk a little bit you know, but I must talk like a gentle man; the fact that I am in a crisis does not mean I should forget that I have a Ph.D.

So, he said, Doctor there is someone here who needs your help you know.

But the third one says today is not the day of grammar: help doctor!

Who is going to get the first attention?

Today is not the day for joking, I beg you; there can only be one thirty fifth anniversary, only one of the Holy Ghost services.

Are you in need materially? Do you really need help? Do you really need a financial breakthrough?

Turn to the One who introduces Himself and say I AM the All-sufficient God, Jehovah El-Shaddai – Genesis 17 verse 1, turn to Him; but do it diligently, do it violently.

2Kings chapter 4 from verse 1 to 7, the widow of the son of the prophet, she did not go quietly, she did not stroll into the house of Elisha: don’t you know that I am the widow of one of the sons of the prophets, she cried; please, she cried, and she got help that day.

I have told you the story when God asked me to give a violent offering when every door was shut against me, and I did what He asked me to do, and doors were opened – not just one, not just two, doors kept on opening.

Are you in marital need?

Look up to the One who is called the Fruitful Vine – John chapter 15 from verse 1 to 5

There is help with Him.

He can resurrect dead wombs.

The Bible says womb of Sarah was already dead.

He can resurrect dead womb.

He can bring children out of stones.

I know what I am talking about.

But you have to seek Him diligently.

In 1Samuel chapter 1 from verse 9 to 20, the tells us that as Hannah wept sore, prayed in such a manner that a prophet or the priest thought that she was drunk; that would be some kind of prayer.

Are you in spiritual in need? 

Are you hungry for the power of God?

Look up to the One who is the great source of power, the only source of power –

Psalm 62 verse 11: God have spoken once, twice have I heard Him that power belongs to God.

But seek Him diligently, tenaciously.

Remember 2Kings chapter 2 from verse 1 to 15, three times Elijah told Elisha, you have done enough, wait.

How can I wait, I have not got what I want yet?

Boy I want to cross Jordan to the other side and you don’t know how to swim.

Who is talking of swimming?

If I get what I want, there would be no need for me to swim.

You open the Jordan, we go over, but by the time I am returning this Jordan must open to me too.

Go to God today, please; come to Him with everything in your being; pray like you have never prayed before; seek Him like you have never done before.

Let this particular night go down in history in your life, at the night everything changed for the better; the night that the help you have been praying for finally came.

So, our procedures would be as follows, because I don’t want to waste too much time preaching anymore because we need to pray – tonight we want to pray.

There would be two prayer sections.

First of all, we will all join together to pray for those who need physical help, everyone of us will pray together,

We would join together, we will pray for those need material help; we will join together we will pray for those who need deliverance; we will join together we will pray for those who have marital problem, and etcetera etcetera.

After that, we have a short break, during which time we will hear if there is any word of prophecy, word of knowledge that God wants to send to us, take note of them,

And then we will thank Him for what He had done,

Then, there would a section of prayer and that one is going to be you alone now.

You will say, why? Afterall, you have all helped me to pray.

Yes! Yes!

If you look at Mark chapter 10 verse 46 to 52, Bartimaeus heard that Jesus was passing by, he cried; and I thank God for that kind of man, he cried.

He was blind but he could hear, and he could shout; there is nothing wrong with his mouth, so he shouted until Jesus heard.

He got help because the very people who originally told him to shut up was the people who brought him to Jesus.

But do you know, after all the help he go, when the Lord asked him: what do you want?

It is with his own mouth, as an individual now, that he said this is what I want.

So, the second section of prayer is going to be You and God alone.

You are the one who will now say, okay, God, everybody had prayed for me, I have already received help, I know You are the Source of the help that I want, but specifically, this is what I want.

But before we pray, there is something in Proverbs chapter 11 verse 21, the Bible says even if hands join hands, a sinner will not go unpunished.

You know what that means?

The whole world will be joining you in prayer today, but if you are a sinner, if your sins have not been washed away by the blood of the Lamb, you will be wasting your time.

The Almighty God is able to satisfy everyone of us, He is more than enough; but He can jump over you if you are still living in sin, and that is while if you are listening to me now, you better come and surrender your life to Jesus Christ, now.

So, wherever you are listening to me, if you have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus Christ, you better run now.

If you are in a church setting, like those of us who are at the Redemption Camp who are camp dwellers, if you are in a church settings like that, in your various countries all over the world, run to the altar and surrendered your life to Jesus Christ; if you are at home run, get up from that comfortable seat, even if you have to go and knee down in front of the television as a sign to God that you are surrendering your life to Jesus Christ, do so now, quickly, and I will join my prayers with you, pray for your salvation. There is only one prayer of the sinner that God can answer that is God have mercy on me miserable offender.

If you cry onto Him now and ask Him to be merciful unto you, He will save your soul, His blood will wash you clean and then, you too can qualify for the miracles.

So, I am going to pray with you in a moment.

Those of you who are already children of the living God please intercede for all those who are surrendering their lives to Jesus Christ now, pray that Lord Jesus Christ we have mercy on them, that He will save their souls, that He will wash them clean in His blood and remove every sin from them. Pray that everything that can hinder their miracle today God will put it under His blood.

Please let us intercede for them and as you are interceding for them you will be interceding for yourself too, if you are backslider that God will restore you fully and if you are still involved in any form of sin yourself even though you call yourself a child of God, then you are a backslider, so, you better asked God to restore you now so that anything that can stand between you and your breakthrough this great night will be washed away by the blood of the Lamb.

Just one more minute cry to God.

Those of you who want to salvation cry to God for mercy; those of you who want restoration cry to Him for restoration; and the rest of us let us intercede for thirty seconds more, then I will pray.

Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

My Father and my God I just want to say thank You. Thank You for Your word, thank You for this very very special day, and thank You for all those who are crying to You now for salvation and restoration, Father, please have mercy on them all, save their souls, let Your blood wash away their sins, restore every backslider to You. And Lord God Almighty, any sins that can stand between any of us and the miracles of today Father please put it under Your blood. Thank You my Father and my God because I know You will answer us by fire today.

For in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Now, those of you who have given your life to Jesus Christ please contact me as soon as possible so that I can continue to pray for you. Give me your name, your address, your prayer request, and I promised you I will be praying for you.

And look for Redeemed Christian Church of God very near you and tell the pastor there I sent you, and then he will guide you as to what to do next.

God bless you.

Now, these our prayer points, I want you to write them so that when together we combine our voices as one we will know what we are praying for.

Number one: We want to thank God for the Holy Ghost service; it is very very special gift from heaven to us. Thank God for the Holy Ghost service itself.

Your prayer number two: Thank God for the previous miracles and answer prayers for the past thirty-five years. If were to compile all the testimonies of the past thirty-five year, we probably will need a little library to keep the books. So, let us thank Him for all answered prayers, He has been answering these prayers months after month after month, we have been hearing some incredible testimonies this past thirty-five years. Let us thank Him because if we are grateful for what He has done in the past, He will do more.

And then, prayer number three: we will all in one accord and say Father, we are in one accord today, please heal all those who are sick. You can heal them all, you are Jehovah El-Shaddai, heal all those who are sick.

Prayer number four: You are going to cry to Him and say Father, we are in one accord, send Your light and scatter all forces of darkness and set all Your children free. Set all Your children free; everyone in bondage Lord set them free. Send Your light, scatter every force of darkness tormenting any of Your children. Set every captive free.

And then number five: we will cry unto Him and say Father, remember all the lonely, all Your children who should be marry by now and are not, remember them tonight; put an end to their loneliness. After all You are the One who says it is not good that a man should be alone, You said so, please Lord God Almighty put an end to all forms of loneliness, put an end to it all.

And then number six: you will say Father, we are all in one accord remember all the barren tonight; open their wombs and make them fruitful, very fruitful, not just fruitful but very very fruitful.

And then number seven: you will cry to Him and say Father, we are in one accord please give those of us in financial needs major breakthroughs from now on so that we don’t have to beg, we don’t have to beg from anyone before we do what we want to do for God. Give us mighty breakthroughs Lord, so that whatever I want to do for You Lord God Almighty I will be able to do it easily.

Number eight: say Father, let our cup of anointing overflow tonight with fresh oil. Rub us with Your power, by the time this night is over let even the devil know that we are now wearing a new robe of divine power.

That is our prayer section one. I am going to lead you through these prayers and at least you should be able to spend at least three minutes on each point, so, we are going to pray for minimum of thirty-minutes shall I say before we have a break.

I am appealing to you tonight, no casual prayer tonight; let us pray as if our lives depend on it because our lives depend on it, there will never be another night like tonight, this is a special night – let us make it special night the way we pray.

So, get ready to pray now and the Almighty God will answer us by fire.

Prayer number nine: you are going to cry to Him and say Father, open the windows of heaven over me and all my neighbours tonight.

Then you are going to cry to Him, prayer point number ten and say: Father, let our testimonies be complete this month.

I am going to encourage you, like I have said earlier on, please pray tonight like you have never prayed before.

Few minutes we are going to share together, let us make the few minutes very intense.

If you are young, I will prefer you pray standing.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let someone hear you shout a big hallelujah.

Before we say thank You to Jesus, He has given us some words; so, maybe you want to pay attention to some of them just in case your own is there, quite a few a mine.

The first one: He said there is someone who needs to be reassured, and He asked me to tell you, I have told you before I will not fail you.

The second one, I don’t know who the fellow is; He asked me to tell you, you will not die a local champion, you will become a world champion.

The third one, and He said whoever this fellow is will understand, He said all the people you had been good to we now begin to reward you.

The next one, which I will love to claim for myself even before I tell you. He said there is someone here or listening to me, He said I will teach how to succeed and then I will help you to succeed.

The next one is definitely mine, but you can tap into it. He said simply, I will increase your speed.

Thank You Daddy, I need that.

Then, the next, which I will also share with you. He said certain event were called spectacular, some events are called miraculous, He said I will give you both.

And I like the next one. Thank You Father.

The Lord said there is someone listening to me all over the world, somewhere in the world, who says I don’t believe in all these prophecies, and He asked me to tell, whoever you are, wherever you are, He said you will see it happen, but you won’t taste it.

Now, the next one, He said there is someone listening to me, He said the word distress will never again be apply to you.

And I like the next one because is an answer to my prayer, and to the prayer we prayed tonight. He said there is someone listening tonight, He said your ultimate testimony will be the barren has born seven.

I think we should shout hallelujah to that.

The next one too, definitely I want that one. He said there is someone here or listening to me wherever you are, He said I will lengthen your days so that you can completely fulfil destiny.

Glory be to God; we are not going to die young, that is what God is saying.

And the last one which is definitely my own is that God says there is someone who is a bit concern, but He asked me to tell you, don’t fear, your end will be glorious.

If you share that with me let me hear you share a really big hallelujah.

I think you should do something by faith, turn to two or three people and tell them: you know I am going to end up gloriously whether the devil likes it or not; my Daddy says my end will be glorious; my Daddy says my end will be glorious. Thank You Father.

Let somebody shout a really big hallelujah.

If you have a piece of cloth you want the Almighty God to anoint for you, you can lift it up and I will cry unto Him.

God is everywhere, He is there in all your churches; He is there wherever you are listening to this programme, and the Holy Spirit is represented by the wind, so, it will reach you there and anoint whatever you are lifting unto Him.

So, let us do that very quickly.

Thank You my Father.

My Lord and my Saviour I just want thank You once again. Thank You for Your goodness, thank You for Your mercy, thank You for answered prayers, please accept our thanks in Jesus’ name. right now, ask that Your wind will blow that Your anointing will enter into every piece of cloth that are lifted up to You, that You will saturate each one with Your power, that wherever each one is used, yokes will be destroyed, miracles will happen, and Your name will be glorified.

Father bless the offerings of Your children, use it for Your glory, and I pray Your children will never lack again.

Father, the moment Your children will be crying to You on individual basis, oh Lord, when they cry to You tonight, answer then by fire. Before the sun rises again, let them have their testimonies.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Wave your piece of cloth and shout a big hallelujah to God.

Now, you are about to pray, and I will tell you a little story before you pray so that you can know the importance of  the prayer you are about to pray.

You see there are somethings God would do for you that would last forever.

I have told you the story before, some of you listening all over the world may not have heard it before.

When we came to this camp in 1983, our greatest headache was water.

We are in a jungle far from any town; we wanted to have a convention, the people are already on the way, it was a week to the convention, and I cried to God – the prayer I prayed then is the prayer you are going to pray tonight: I asked God to send help to me.

It was Sunday evening, the convention was going to start the following Sunday, and one fellow was driving passed, he was not a member of the church and he saw what was going on here as the caterpillars were working; the grounds here happened to be clay – you dig the well today, by tomorrow morning it has collapsed.

He drove in and said what are you doing here, and I told him we want to use this place as a campground.

He said what do you need?

Haa!

I said our biggest problem now is water because when we dig well it collapsed the following day.

He said what you need is a borehole.

I said I know that I just don’t have the money.

He said I will build you one.

I said but we have a week to go.

He said that is enough time.

By that evening, engineers have come.

To cut a long story short, by the time the crowd came for the convention, water was no longer a problem; water is still flowing from that well it now.

I want you to go before the Almighty God, please don’t be a hurry, it is just a little over twelve, and some of you are in your home anyway, you are not going anywhere; some of you are in your churches not too far from home; even if it is only another thirty minutes, while don’t you just go to God alone.

You see, because, when Naaman needed healing, he got help, somebody told him where help will be got; he came, the man of God told him what to do; he got angry, he got another help.

But do you know, it was Naaman alone who deep in Jordan, nobody else help him to jump in.

We have joined you in prayers; I have cried to God that He will answer you; please while don’t you come before God, if you want to come to the altar this time, you are welcome: only one thing, God send help to me.

Send help to me; Lord, send help to me. From the east send help to me, from the west, from the north, from the south send help to me, from heaven above, God please send help to me; send help to me.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God, nobody is going to stop you, pray till you are satisfied.

God send help to me! send help to me that is what I am crying for, help, help, send help to me that is while I am lifting up my eyes to You, send help to me; send help to me, what no human being can do for me, Lord, send help to me. I beg You my Father and my God, Almighty God, send help to me, send help to me; send help to me, send help to me, please, Lord, send help to me, send help to me, Lord, send help to me; I lift up my eyes to You Lord, send help to me, send help to me, send help to me, send help to me Lord; please, out of Your mercy send help to me.
