ANOINTING FOR UNUSUAL VICTORY 6th of November, 2004
Thank You Father! Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) The devil is in trouble for someone tonight. If you are the one let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Thank You Jesus! Alleluia! Alleluia! …… Blessed be the name of the Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Thank You! Glory be to God! Alleluia! Glory be to God!
3 nights ago the Lord spoke to me and said, For some of my children the month of November will be the month of solutions. (Amen!) (Amen!) (Amen!) Alleluia! Glory be to God!. We are serving a God we can trust. Last month He told me that it would be the month of answered prayers and I have series of testimonies and I will share one of them with you now to prepare you for this night that you will never forget. (Amen!)
I got a letter in September from a young man who was in serious trouble. He was going to marry in October and then they went for a test and they found that the wife was HIV+. So he said, D, what do I do? He’s from the North. So I said I will be in Abuja for Holy Ghost Service. If you come, we will pray. He came with the sister. We prayed. The sister went for another check up……. And the AIDS had disappeared. Every prayer that you prayed in October, the answer will surely come. The same God said, for some of my children the month of November will be the month of solutions. (Amen!)
Once upon a time there was a young man who loved the Lord. He was not very rich but he loved the Lord with all that he had. So God decided to bless him. Now since God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform. God got 3 kings together, very wealthy kings and told them, go and attack my boy and when you are going, take plenty of money along, plenty of gold and silver! Go and attack him. So they came. And they told this young man: 3 kings have come to attack you. So he ran to God: Father what have I done that all these problems are surrounding me? And there is somebody here today; all your problems will lead to mighty testimonies! … And God spoke to the young man; You don’t understand what I am doing. You don’t have to fight, all you have to do is praise me! You will see the result. He praised God like nobody had done before. The 3 kings killed themselves and their wealth became the wealth of this young man. There is another Jehoshaphat in the house tonight. (Amen!) The wealth of your enemies are going to be converted to you! (Amen!) The Lord is going to fight your battles for you. You are going to have a victory that nobody can ever, ever, ever, talk again! (Amen!) If you are the one, for the next 5 minutes, like you have never done before - praise God, magnify His Holy Name!, adore Him! Lift Him high! Forget who you are! Go ahead, Praise Him!

God Bless you! Congratulations.
1 Samuel 17:34-37 Tonight we want to talk about anointing for unusual victories. Somebody is going to have unusual victories tonight., One thing I have noticed about God that when a preacher preaches about salvation, people get saved. when a preacher preaches about healing, people get healed. Tonight I am preaching about unusual victories. All the battles in the life of someone will end tonight. (Amen!) I didn’t say in the life of everybody, I said in the life of somebody. I said in the life of somebody the battles will be over tonight. (Amen!).
1 Samuel 17:34-37
And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock: And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him. Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God. David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the Lord be with thee.
The Lord will be with someone here tonight. (Amen!) David had many enemies; Many unusual enemies. He fought many unusual battles but the anointing of the most High God gave him victory over them all and as we go into the Word of God tonight it will be in your interest to be on your toes because it is likely that some of the battles you have been fighting, David has fought them before. And as God gave David victory, I believe He’s going to give you victory tonight.
The first of David’s enemies was unusual loneliness. You know it is possible to be in the midst of a huge crowd and still be lonely. It’s possible to live in Lagos and be lonely. Oh many of us know what I’m talking about. It’s a lonely life when you are a good cook and there is nobody to eat the food you have cooked. It’s a lonely life when you see something funny and there is nobody to share the laughter with you. It’s a lonely life when you are promoted and there is nobody to celebrate with you. But this month, beginning tonight every form of loneliness will end in Jesus name! (Amen!)
In 1 Samuel 16:11 when Samuel said to Jesse, Are these all your children, the father of David said, It remains one alone in the field. David knew how to be alone. You can imagine his loneliness. The only companions he had were sheep. He can’t share jokes with them. He can’t talk to them and get an answer. They don’t know when he’s hurting. When he has pain, when he’s hungry. They don’t care. He was lonely. But that day, that very day the anointing of God came upon David and he was never alone again till he died. That very day the anointing destroyed the yokes of loneliness permanently in his life. I have good news for somebody here tonight: today is the last time you will be lonely in Jesus name! (Amen!)
The second enemy of David was unusual rejection. Nobody wanted him. Can you imagine? Here is a family with eight boys. There is only one left in the field, alone, unloved. The man of God told the father when he came into town; Call your sons to the sacrifice. The father did not call him. The brothers did not call him. He was rejected. And then in 1 Samuel 17 if you read from 26 to 29 when David got to the battlefront where his father had asked him to go and take food to his brothers, he saw Goliath boasting. He asked the people, What are they going to give to the man who kills this giant. When his brother heard, you know what they said? Who wants you here? Who asked you to come? You should be alone in the fields. I have just brought you food. My father sent me to take it to you. Who wants you here? But then because of the anointing of God, the same fellow who said, Who wants you here? the same day, he stood before the king. There is somebody here today; very soon you’ll be standing before presidents. (Amen!) The family said we don’t want you. Your people may say they don’t need you! But because of the anointing of the most high God, you will not stop before you reach the top. I say you will reach the stop. (Amen!)
When you read 1 Samuel 18:5 the Bible says this same David became accepted in the sight of all Israel. You will be a solution to this nation! (Amen!) Thank You Father!
The Lord said there is a student here tonight, he said you are neither dull nor brilliant. The Lord asked me to tell you, from tonight you will begin to shine. (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said when I was sharing the testimony about the fellow with HIV, He said there is someone here who was seriously worried. The Lord asked me to tell you, As He solved the problem of that lady, He will solve your own problem also.
Enemy number three was unusual poverty. It is to be understood, the parents don’t want him, the brothers don’t want him. He was alone with the sheep so where is the prosperity going to come from. In fact if you read 1 Samuel 18:4 When David stood before Jonathan. Jonathan looked at him. He saw the way he was dressed. He said, If we are going to be friends, I think I will have to give you my clothes to wear. David was living on hand me down but when the anointing came on him if you read 1 Chronicles 29….
Thank You Father! The Lord said, somebody danced here very well tonight. He said, I will give you cause to dance more! (Amen!)
You see God was watching you when you were dancing… He said someone danced very well tonight. He said, I will give you more cause to dance! (Amen!)
In 1 Chronicles 29:1-5 After David made provision for the building of the house of God, he made provision that Bible scholars said will be in the billions of dollars for the maintenance of that same house. Not only to build the house but to maintain it for years to come. There is somebody here today you can hardly survive but because you came tonight you will be building churches for God. As you are building for God, God will be building for you. (Amen!)
Enemy number four was unusual barrenness. If you read 2 Samuel 6:20-23 you will discover that the first wife of David, was the only one we read about in the Bible who died barren. Why? Because she annoyed God. Because she saw David dancing for God and she began to ridicule him! God said all right if you ridicule my son then I will make sure you die barren. But by dying barren she was contributing to barrenness for David but the anointing of God intervened and God promised David, David you will never lack a son to sit on your throne. He said Your kingdom will be forever. There is somebody here today, the enemy thinks you will die barren but because you came tonight, great shall be your children! (Amen!)
And those of you who already have children, in the mighty Name of Jesus you will never bury any of them. (Amen!)
Enemy number 5…
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is somebody here who loves to sow, the Lord asked me to tell you, keep sowing and as Isaac grew from great to very great so shall you grow from great to very great. (Amen!)
Enemy number 5 – unusual stagnation. Year after year David was a shepherd boy. Years before shepherd boy. Every time somebody said Happy New Year he was a shepherd boy. And since there is nothing like senior shepherd boy or chief shepherd boy, he was just a shepherd boy. There are many of us like that here. Going around in circles every year. Happy New Year! It will meet us where it met us last year. But things will change tonight (Amen!) – I didn’t say for everybody, I said for somebody – (Amen!) Because the moment the anointing came on David, rapid promotion came. By the time he got to 1 Samuel 22:1-2 he was already captain over 400 men. He was no longer a shepherd boy but captain – of 400! By the time we get to 2 Samuel 2:1-4 he has become the king of Judah. By the time we get to 2 Samuel 5:1-3 He had become the king of Israel and after that one he became the father of kings! Imnj, beginning from tonight your promotion shall be rapid.
Enemy number 6: parental sins. David said in Posalm 51:5, he said, in sin did my mother conceive me… and Bible scholars say that what he’s telling us here is that he was born out of wedlock. If we are to use the modern language we would say he was born a bastard. The father had a one-night situation with the mother and it became something. David was born. And that explains why the children of the other mother did not want him. If he was the son of their own mother they won’t leave him alone in the field. He was an embarrassment to the father. The father didn’t plan for him to come to the world. But nothing happens by accident with God and in any case whether the father wanted him or not, God wanted him. Whether your parents like you or they don’t like you, God loves you. Parental sin, which should have even caused major problem for David because God says I am a jealous God, visiting the iniquities of the fathers on children to the third and fourth generation. But thank God the same God said, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy. There is somebody here tonight, God is going to be merciful to you! I say God is going to be merciful to you! (Amen!)
I was preaching once and I told this story. When I read the story of Solomon, I asked God, God I don’t understand. How can You love Solomon because the Bible says, And God loved Solomon. The father was a murderer, an adulterer, the mother an adulteress – the worst type - that caused the death of her husband - how can the product of these two become your favourite Oh God? And God answered me and said, Are you the son of the first wife? I said, No more question O Lord! No more questions! Somebody is going to receive favour from God tonight! (Amen!) I say, someone is going to receive favour from God tonight. (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said, I think God must be really interested in students tonight. He said there is a student here, He said, You have suffered mental black out in exam hall before. He said I should tell you that will never happen again. (Amen!)
The Lord said there is someone here one eye is giving you serious trouble. The Lord asked me to tell you within the next five minutes the trouble will be gone forever.
Now I received this new one…..
The Lord says there is someone here tonight the wind of My Spirit will blow on you tonight. (Amen!) I receive that. Even I say Amen to that one!
Enemy number seven is what I call ‘wrong destiny’…. the kind of destiny that gives you unusual lack of opportunity. They did not even invite David to let the prophet check whether he can be king or not. Do you know there are several beautiful voices that are never heard? When you hear of some great singers in the whole world, there are better singers only nobody ever heard them sing. Do you know there are better footballers in the villages who died, never, never discovered? Do you know that for the grace of God, the education of Pastor Adeboye would have ended in Form 3? Oh! he never came second but by the time he got to Form 3 everything that the parents could sell for school fees had been sold and that would have been the end of his education but for the grace of God! There are brilliant people, who never got to the University, but the anointing came and the boy that would never have even appeared before Samuel was brought by force. Whatever is in you that is good, that is being hidden now, form tonight onwards, God will bring it out! (Amen!) I say God will bring it out! (Amen!)
Thank You Father! I receive it too. The Lord says when great people gather together, they will call you great! (Amen!) I say ‘Amen’ to that one. When great people gather together, they will look at you and say, you are great. (Amen!)
Enemy number eight – lions! Lions! It told us in the passage we read, I was minding my own business looking after the sheep of my father and then the lion came. If you have studied lions, I have watched them closely on a channel they call Discovery channel – you discover how they kill when they are hunting, They go very softly, They won’t make a noise. They going quietly, getting closer and closer and closer. When they are very close then they roar! The shout will paralyze the animal! Then they jump on the victim and grab it by the throat and choke the animal to death. That’s how the lion kills. Which is why God compares the devil to a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour! The devil is walking quietly until he gets close then he roars trying to grab somebody!
David prayed. He prayed in Psalm 22:21 He said, O God save me from the mouth of lions. I thank God when the anointing came David was able to punch the lion to death. All those who are trying to choke you to death, the anointing of the Almighty God will destroy them tonight! (Amen!) If you have never had a choking feeling, if nobody had ever grabbed you by the throat before you won’t know what it is to feel choked. There are some problems that are choking people; problems so mighty that they are choking you but the anointing of God will destroy the yoke tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)
Then another thing about the lion is that it jumps upon… Usually it represents problems that come from people who are above you, those that have the power to press you down. All those people who are sitting ion your breakthrough, God will set fire on their buttocks! (Amen!) I still remember very clearly 1992, after our Convention, everybody had gone home and I went for my morning walk, praying, thanking God but as I was returning I suddenly began to feel tired and I wondered, what’s the problem and I got home and I found I was panting. What’s going on I couldn’t breathe; it was as if something was choking me! God what is this? I was still wondering, wondering. And while I was struggling with that they brought somebody who was sick and they asked me to pray for the fellow. But after I prayed for the fellow, suddenly it became clear to me that I’m about to die. I went to my prayer room, took a tape recorder and a blank tape. I said Father, if this is the end, tell me who will succeed me so I can record it on this tape so that Your work can continue. By now I was practically being choked to death and g spoke and said, I’m not the one killing you. Sir it’s not You. Who then? It’s the devil of course. Ah! That’s easy to handle! That one is easy to handle. Every enemy trying to choke you to death, the fire of the Almighty God will consume tonight! (Amen!) Less than one hour, I was completely healthy and running round again. From tonight you will go from strength to strength. (Amen!)
Enemy number nine … Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s somebody here, when the shakings are over you will be promoted. (Amen!)
Enemy number nine – bear. The thing about the bear is that it hugs people to death. A hug is supposed to be a friendly gesture. It’s only people you love that you hug. But in the case of a bear when he hugs you it is to kill. so a bear represents false friends. Those who pretend to be your friends, who are hugging you, smiling at you and they are planning to kill you. And David said in Psalm 41:7-10. He said, they that hate me, whisper together, including my best friend that I trusted. He said, they are saying, now that he’s down he will never rise again. I thank God there is a friend, a true friend, a reliable friend, a faithful friend – who can tell me His Name? Jesus. He’s the one who said when you are going through the river I will go with you, when you are going through fire I will go with you. David said, even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil! For You are with me! There is a friend who says I will never leave you, I will never forsake you and there is an anointing that can expose false friends. Every false friend in your life, before the end of this month, God will expose them all. I say God will expose them all. (Amen!) So you better get ready for surprises.
I’ve told you the story before. There was a friend of mine who was getting married and there were three of us who were close friends, so the other two of us we rushed to his place to get him prepared but the second friend got there before me so when I got there this friend number two was, oh, running up and down, ‘You are welcome Sir, You’re welcome Sir! What are you going to take? Is it coke? Is it tea? Is it…’ And suddenly God spoke and said – He’s lying. He doesn’t like you. If I didn’t know the voice of God I would say, Get thee behind me Satan’. He’s my friend! We’ve slept on the same bed several times. The little money I have, I’ve used it to help him. We’re close friends. God said, ‘He’s lying.’ All your false friends you will discover them this month in Jesus name! (Amen!).
I couldn’t bear it but I kept quiet until the marriage was done and everybody had gone. It remained the three of us and I said to friend number one. I said, I heard the Voice yesterday, talking about friend, about you, that is not my friend. Friend number 2 said, Ah-ah! We asked him. He said, Please sir, please sir forget it, forget it, even myself I said so…’ That was in June. By the December of the same year the same man said, Since you came to the Redeemed Christian Church of God, I have hated you! He said it with his own mouth! And I’ve slept on the same bed with him. He could have killed me if he wanted, if God gave him the opportunity. The God that kept you alive till today, He will expose all your false friends in Jesus name! (Amen!)
Enemy number ten – Goliath, the giant. What does Goliath represent? God is a mountain blocking the way to the new destiny of David because Goliath said in 1 Samuel 17:4-10, he said, Let Israel send one man to come and fight me. If he defeats me all Philistines will become the slave of Israel. If I defeat him the while of Israel will become our slaves. The devil knew that Davis has just been anointed to be king of Israel and Philistine wanted to take that kingdom away through Goliath because Goliath knew there was nobody who could fight him and win. So he decided to stand there like a mountain to block the way of David to the throne. But thank God there was someone who had been there before the mountains were brought forth. There is someone who can uproot any mountain from the bottom and as the Lord lives, every mountain blocking your way to your destiny, they shall be uprooted tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)
Now one thing about God is that whenever He removes a mountain there is always nothing left. When He decided to deal with the mountain in the way of Israel. He not only delivered Israel, He drowned Pharaoh and his whole army. All those who said you will not be free, somehow, God will drown them tonight. When He was dealing with the enemies of Moses, the mountains that stood before Moses – Korah, Data, Abiram… they said Moses your ministry is over, this is how far you go – no further. When God decided to deal with that mountain, He asked the ground to open its mouth and swallow the enemies. All those who said that this is how far you will go and no further, if they don’t repent tonight the ground will swallow them! (Amen!) You better get ready for surprises this month.
You probably have heard the testimony of the brother. He was doing very well and for one reason or the other the father just felt that this boy is becoming bigger than I. So he said, this is how far this boy will go. I pray for you fathers: Your children will be greater than you! (Amen!) Any father who didn’t say ‘Amen’ to that one I will say something else. I say your children will be greater than you (Amen!). They fired this person in his place of work. What have I done? They said ‘Nothing, Just go.’ So he came he said , Sir, this is what happened. I said, We will talk to God about it. And then we talked to God and God answered. I remember we were holding the Holy Ghost Service in the old auditorium near the expressway and the Word of God came that there is somebody here, somebody said this is how far you go and you won’t go further. God said, within one week, whoever said so will be sleeping inside the ground. Within one week the father died. Within one week they called the boy back. Within one week they promoted him again. Any mountain saying this is how far you will go and not further, the ground will open its mouth to swallow them today in Jesus name! (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here, He said the cloud of death over your family has been dispersed. (Amen!)
When God dealt with the mountain before Joshua, it was not one side of the wall of Jericho that fell. All the four sides fell. And you know what, without my saying so tonight, the praise and worship tonight was excellent because, whether you know it or not, one of the greatest weapons for spiritual warfare, for unusual victory is praise! So let me hear somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!).
When God decided to deal with the mountain before Daniel, In Daniel 6:24 it wasn’t just the people who said they should throw Daniel into the den of lions that God dealt with. He asked them to come with their families. They were to come with their wives, come with their children! So that there would be no residual mountains.Every mountain before you and their babies and their children – small mountains, big mountains – they re going tonight in Jesus name! (Amen!)
Thank You Father! All kinds of healing have been going on tonight. All kinds of healings if I were to tell you all of them we would not continue but there is one I must say. God said there is someone here today; He said the mark of hatred that the enemy has put on you has been cancelled. Alleluia!
Enemy number eleven is the father-in-law. Saul himself. 1 Samuel 18:28-29.The Bible said, Saul hated David because God was with David. He didn’t hate David because David offended him! No, he hated David because God was with David. The Bible said in Matthew 10:36 Jesus said, a man’s foes will be those of his own household! This is the biggest problem of all. You are living with them, sleeping with them, eating with them. They say they are your brother, your sister and they see that God is with you, God is prospering you and because of that they hate you! How do we deal with this? Thank God for the almighty. He has a way of changing the evil plans of relatives to good. Joseph said to his brothers, He said you meant it for evil but God turned it round for good. Every evil plan of any relative concerning you shall be changed for good in Jesus name! (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s someone here tonight, He said before the year is out I will do a new thing in your life. (Amen!)
Enemy number twelve is not just an in-law but a king… The enemy of David was not just an in-law but a king, the ruler of his nation. And Ecclesiastes 8:4 says where the word of the king is there is power, it said, who can say to him, what doest thou? The enemy of David is someone who can kill him openly and no one can query him. But thank God. Ecclesiastes 5:8 says there is someone who is higher than the highest. There is someone who is King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, who is the great Commander-in-Chief of the hosts of heaven; there is someone who is higher than the highest, stronger than the strongest, greater than the greatest and His name is called Jesus! Let me hear you call that name again! Jesus!
You know when God is on your side, he has a funny way of putting those who think they are far, far, far above you to shame. Let me tell you this story, Some of you know it some of you don’t. When we first came to this camp, it must be 1983. Moving from the expressway into this camp was a very difficult problem because there was a little stream across the gutter and we couldn’t park cars on the outside because this used to be the headquarters of armed robbers. So quickly we built a culvert, just a little culvert, we were very poor then. Then the Federal Government came – what have you done? Building a culvert onto the expressway? Remove it immediately. Sorry sir, we can’t do that. If you don’t remove it we will come and remove it. Okay. And then they came. They came with very heavy equipment and they fixed it to this very small culvert and they began to pull! And they began to pull! And they began to pull! They brought equipment that will pull down a mighty bridge within minutes. They pulled and pulled and pulled. And my child began to say, Pull harder! Pull harder! Pull harder! Their truck fell into the gutter. When God plants use there is no human force that can uproot you! Tonight you will be planted by the Lord! No government will be able to uproot you! No enemy will be able to uproot you! Alleluia!
O Thank You! my Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said very soon you will be widely known as the blessed of the Lord! (Amen!) I say ‘Amen!’ to that one.
Enemy number thirteen – the Philistines. They are the enemy without and they are always there. They are the neighbours of Israel. They are the enemies without that the enemies within want to hand you over to. In 1 Samuel 18:22-27 the Bible says that when king Saul tried to kill David and failed. He tried to wedge him to the wall with javelin 2 times. He failed. He said, I know what I will do. I will hand him over to the Philistines so when he dies nobody will say I’m the one that killed him. He said, Go and tell him, tell him I like him and I want to give him my daughter in marriage. I don’t want any dowry. I just want him to go and cut off the head of some Philistines and bring them. So that the enemy can kill and they won’t say I’m the one who did it. But thank God we serve a God that David said, thou preparest a table before me – where? – In the presence of my enemies. Beginning from this month you will begin to enjoy in the presence of your enemies. (Amen!)
I’m sure you read in the papers some years ago when some internal enemies of the Alake of Egbaland decided that he had reigned too long. Let’s kill him otherwise he won’t allow somebody else to reign. So they sent for one juju-man from Benin Republic, and he came. … in cooperation with the house help…. He gave him medicine to put in the food, gave him poison to spread on the bed sheet. He did everything. After one week the juju-man said, I want to see kabiyesi. He said, I don’t know what you are using; I don’t know who you are worshipping but that is God that you are worshipping, You better hold onto him because all that I’ve tried – you shouldn’t last 2 days but none of them worked. I am saying to somebody here today: Every weapon fashioned against you shall not prosper. (Amen!) I say they will not prosper! (Amen!) And all the enemies without they will come and bow at your feet. (Amen!)
Enemy number fourteen – the invaders. In 1 Samuel 40:1-6 David was away with his army before he came back some invaders have come, they have cleared everything – wife, children, everything. When David came back with his army and everything was burnt, himself and all the soldiers they wept until they had no strength more to weep. Anything that will cause mighty men to weep that must be serious … there is somebody here tonight you will never weep again! (Amen!) The sorrow was so great that his followers said, Let’s kill him! Let’s stone him to death! It wasn’t his fault but of course whenever anything goes wrong they blame the leader. But thank God, David strengthened himself in the Lord and asked God: God what do I do? Shall I pursue them? And the Almighty God answered and said, “Yes, pursue them! Overtake them and recover all!” Everything that the enemy has stolen from you, before the end of this month you will recover all in Jesus name! (Amen!) You will recover all, (Amen!) you will recover all.. (Amen!)
Let me take enemy number fifteen and then we’ll soon be praying. The only enemy that knocked down David – the flesh. In 2 Samuel 11 – the whole chapter – when prosperity came – all was well, the lonely man was no longer lonely, the rejected man was no longer rejected; the stagnant man has now become the king of the whole of Israel; lion was dead; bear vanquished; the mountain called Goliath had been uprooted; Saul was no more; all was well. Poor David now has become wealthy David. The one who was sleeping on the field with the sheep now is sleeping on comfortable bed in the palace. Instead of going to war, he slept. He slept from morning to evening because he was the king. Then he got up; he went for a stroll. At the wall of his house he saw a woman bathing, beautiful woman! He called his servant: Who is that woman? Oh that’s the wife of Uriah. Oh! Go and bring her! Yes sir, Your Majesty! The wife came. You know the rest of the story. Soon the wife sent back and said, Sir, I am pregnant! Ah! Well we shall do something about it. Send the husband back to me from the battlefront. Yes Your Majesty. ‘Uriah you are welcome! How is the battle? Well all is well. Well eat, drink and go and spend the might with your wife. Uriah said, Your majesty, my Commander is in the field.; the Ark of the Covenant is in the field. I can’t sleep and enjoy like you. You are the king!. I am just a soldier. So David said, Load him with alcohol, when he is drunk he won’t know what he is saying. They loaded him with alcohol but Uriah still remembered. No, no, no I am a soldier of God, I can’t do that! So David said, All right if we try to do it gently and you don’t want, we’ll do it by force. So he wrote a letter to the Commander and sent it through the hand of Uriah, put the bearer of this letter where the battle is hottest and when the enemy rises up withdraw from him so he can be killed. The Commander read the letter and looked at the bearer and wondered what the poor man had done. Anyway Uriah died. They told the King, the King said, that’s it now l… Lady you can come here now! Your husband is dead. I am the new husband. But God was watching.
One day God sent a servant to go and tell David a story. There was a rich man who had plenty of sheep. There was a poor man who had one little lamb. That’s all he had. He loves the little lamb! Sleeps with the little lamb. Then one day the rich man had a visitor and instead of taking one of his own flock, he took the little lamb of the poor man; used it to entertain his visitors. David said, What? In my Kingdom? That man is dead! The prophet said, Thou art the man! Then he told him the story of Uriah. You think God didn’t see you? God said, you did it in secret but now it is time for judgment.
My brothers and my sisters, God is a good friend when He is on your side, who is the enemy who can stand? The Bible says, if God be for us who can be against us? It said we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. It said, No weapon fashioned against us shall prosper. He said to Israel, look at all the enemies. He said, all the enemies you see tonight you will never see them again! You have killed him there is no way you can even restitute on that. He told David, the sword will never depart from your house. That is why there is no peace in Israel today.
There is one battle you must not lose. It is the battle against the flesh. The flesh wioll tell you not to pray even though the Bible says pray without ceasing. The flesh will tell you not to fast even though the Apostle Paul, said ‘I fasted much.’ The flesh will tell you not to witness even though God says it is when you witness He will answer all your prayers. The flesh will tell you not to give even though the Bible says it is when you give you will be given. The flesh will tell you, don’t pay your tithes, when the Word of God says if you don’t pay your tithes, you are a robber. The flesh will say don’t surrender to Jesus, when Jesus Christ said unless you are born again you won’t see the kingdom of God. Tonight the anointing of God is here to enable you to say ‘No’ to the flesh. And the anointing of God is here tonight to give you the greatest victory of all - the victory over your flesh! The anointing of God is here tonight to help you to decide to pray without ceasing, to witness like never before, to sow like never before, to give like never before, to pay all your tithes so that God can open the windows of heaven over you; the anointing of God is here tonight to enable you surrender your life to Jesus so if you are here and you have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus or you have surrendered before and you have already gone back into sin, you better come back tonight. Come and surrender your life to Jesus!
This is the last Holy Ghost Service on this Camp before the Congress. In this year of foundations this is the last Holy Ghost Service on this Camp Ground. Whatever you do today will affect the rest of your life. Come and surrender your life to Jesus. Today is the day of salvation. I will count up to 10. If by 10 you are not yet out here I will know that you have decided that no matter how terrible H can be as an enemy you don’t care, that you are going to fight Him and you will see who will win. But come and surrender your life to Jesus now. He will save your soul. He will cleanse you in His Blood and things will change. 1… 2… 3…. 4 … 5….. 6…… 7….. 8 .. The Bible says the wages of sin is death but the gift of life is in Jesus Christ His Son. The Bible says he who conceals his sin shall not prosper but whosever will confess and forsake them will obtain mercy, come and surrender your life to Jesus. Come and confess your sins before Him. Let Him receive you tonight. Let Him forgive you tonight. Let the power of His Blood cleanse you tonight. Come and receive mercy. 9…. This is the final call now. It is God that is calling you not me. He is giving you an opportunity to be saved, an opportunity for things to change, an opportunity for your sins to be gone.
Those who are already in front talk to God now. Say Father, forgive me. Have mercy on me. I have come to surrender my life to you. Save my soul tonight and give me the grace never to sin against you again! Talk to the Almighty God now! Those of you who are already on the way, keep coming! Come and talk to the Almighty God before it is too late. The rest of us let’s stretch our hands towards these people – that He will cleanse them. Pray for these people now! Call on the Almighty God for the salvation of the souls of these people. Those of you who are still on the way, you better hurry up, I’m about to pray for these people now. Those of you in front cry to the Almighty God, God save my soul! Have mercy on me O Lord! Have mercy on me! Save my soul O Lord! Cleanse me in Your Blood! Cleanse me in Your Blood! Cleanse me in Your Blood! Talk to the Almighty God I will serve You O Lord! Please save my soul! Have mercy on me Lord! Have mercy on me today! Have mercy on me Almighty God!

Those of you, who are still on the way, hurry up now. I’m about to pray. Those of you who are coming for salvation hurry up now. Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
Father, we want to thank You. We want to thank You for Your Word. We want to thank You for those who have come forward this morning. We want to hank You for Your promise that whosoever will come unto You You will in no wise cast out. These Your children have come to You now. Receive them in Jesus name! (Amen!)! Forgive them in Jesus name! (Amen!)! Save their souls in Jesus name! (Amen!)! Cleanse them in Your Blood in Jesus name! (Amen!) ! Write their names in Your Book in Jesus name! (Amen!)! And the power never to go back into the world, give it to them in Jesus name! (Amen!)! And from now on, fight their battles for them in Jesus name! (Amen!) Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen!
Those of you in front let me hear you shout Alleluia! I want to rejoice with you. You have taken a very good decision tonight and I want to promise you, God helping me, from now on I will be praying for you so I’m going to need your names, your address –correct address – and your prayer requests. Give me the correct address so that when I ask God to send your miracle it will be sent to the address you put down. Now there are some pastors who are waiting. They want to collect this information from you and then they will bring you back. So if you face this direction there’s a brother there waving a piece of wood, follow him, he will take you to where the Pastors are waiting for you.. Go cheerfully, the Almighty God is already rejoicing over you for this day. Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause for these people.
Now you are going to stand and pray a prayer, say Father, don’t let me be my own enemy, give me victory over my flesh. Don’t let me be my own enemy. Give me victory over my flesh! Let’s talk to the Almighty God! Don’t let me be my own enemy. Give me victory over my flesh! Give me complete victory over my flesh. Don’t let me be my own enemy O Lord!
The anointing that is going to give you unusual victory is heavy here tonight. Those of us who want to be ministered to this is your time. So as the men of God line up as usual and as the choir, who had been wonderful thus far, begin to minister, those of us who want hands laid on us will come and I want you to come this time praying, that Lord even as Your servant will touch me, total victory let it be mine! Come with faith and come praying. And I am already praying that God will quicken the feet of the ministers so that they will be at their posts on time so that the anointing can reach you quickly and the miracles will continue to multiply. God bless you.
Now we want to do something that the spirit of God ministered to me that we should do. In 2 Kings 13 if you read it from verse 13 and on the Bible says when Elisha was sick and was about to do the king came to him and said to him My father, my father, the chariots of Israel and the horsemen thereof. In other words the king was saying Sir, you are the defender of Israel now you are about to go and Elisha said to him take bow and arrow, He took them he laid his hand on his hand,he shot and he said, Oh , that’s the arrow of deliverance. And then he said he should take the arrow and smite the ground. He smote three times and stopped. The Bible said the man of God was angry with him, said you should have done it more than 3 times, I didn’t ask you to stop! He said, because you stopped at three you will win only three victories.
There are certain things in the Bible that are done symbolically - Something you do so that God can do something. You are going to do something tonight. You are going to take the step of victory.. You are going to do what? I didn’t hear you. Ah-ah! So those of you who are in front your own is easy but those of you in the rows you have to get yourself to the aisles. You are going to take some steps today. And as you are taking the steps you will say: victory number 1, victory number 2, Victory number 3! Victory number 4! Victory number 7! Victory number 8! Victory number 9! Victory number 10… Victory, victory, victory…Then you can turn back now and take more steps back to your seat…victory, upon victory, upon victory, upon victory! Turn back now and begin to take more steps towards your seat! Go ahead, go back to your seat, take more steps back to your seat and begin to praise the Almighty God for victory, upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! Go back to your seats now and begin to praise the Almighty God. Cry His name and begin to thank Him from now on it will be victory, upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! Go back to your seats and take steps of victory as you go back. Glorify God! Begin to thank Him for victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Say Father, I thank You for victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory forevermore! Victory forevermore! Victory forevermore! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Victory, upon victory, upon victory! Alleluia! If you receive that let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)
If you believe that all your battles are over let me her you shout a big Alleluia! Alleluia! Now I want you to shake hands with 3 or 4 people and say, Thank God! I have Victory upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! upon victory, upon victory! So shall it be in Jesus mighty name.
How many of you agree with me that the band has been wonderful again tonight? I want to appeal to the AGOs to please come and help me lay hands on these children – let’s give them a special hand-laying – they’ve been doing a wonderful job again tonight. Let’s appreciate them by giving them a special touch of the anointing of God. If you appreciate them give them another round of applause, give them another round of applause, give them another round of applause,! They sang so well we all wanted to keep on dancing! Alleluia! Glory be to God! Your anointing will never run dry. O Thank You Jesus! It’s been a wonderful night don’t you think? And there are more blessings yet to come.
Which one is too little for you to praise God about? If it is your child that was kidnapped and they released him by the power of God because God says this one is not for ritual. Will you praise God? If you are the one who’s been blind in one eye but now you can see with two, will you praise God? If it is your daughter whose blood is SS and is now AA will you praise God? If you are the one who has been barren for years and the first time you became pregnant the devil struck again and then God turned your sorrow around into joy….. Brethren will you please give the Lord a big, big round of applause. Will you praise Him, praise the Almighty God? Give Him all glory He deserves to be glorified; He deserves to be praised. Magnify His Holy Name! Thank You Father!
Now before I pray, there are always some people, no matter what God has done, they still feel unless the GO prays for me… So if there are such people let them come now so I can pray for them. I believe God already solved your problem but if you still want to come, come. Enter into a covenant with the Most High God – You do this for me Lord, I will do the following. Solve my problems this month and I will do the following in return. Do it O Lord, I will give you all glory and all honour and all adoration and the world will hear about it and they will praise You with me! Thank You Almighty God.
My Father and my God Your Word says that it will be unto us according to our faith. These Your children have come believing that if I will pray this prayer they will receive their solutions. (Amen!) Father be merciful unto them. (Amen!) Anything that can stand between them and the miracles they need. Put it under your Blood. (Amen!) Father, honour their faith. (Amen!)AMEN!
PRAISE THE LORD!
