OPEN DOORS TO IRREVERSIBLE BREAKTHROUGHS 1st of July, 2005

…Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) The breakthrough that somebody had been waiting for will come tonight.  (Amen!) And if that had been you let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). In Psalm 18:1-3 David said, I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.  The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.  I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. Somebody is going to be free from all enemies tonight. I’ve told you this story – Thank You Father! Tell your neighbour – This is my special night. I’ve told you this story. When I was very young, my father had 2 wives, quite a few children and he was very poor. So whenever it is time for school fees he will enter into quarrel with his wives so nobody will be able to come and ask for school fees but my mother always got my school fees from him. She will come early in the morning, kneel down and begin to praise my father: You are the son of so-and-so! You are the son of so-and-so, when your father went to war he killed, he captured, when your father threw a feast he invited civilians, he invited soldiers! The birds flew for days and never saw the end of your father’s farm! And my father will begin to swell, he will begin to swell and my mother would continue and very soon my father will begin to say: It will be well with you, it will be well with your children in this house. You will prosper. My mother will continue! Finally my father will say – what can I do for you today? It is my father who asks what do you want? David did the same thing here. He said, I will love thee, O Lord, my strength - my rock my fortress, my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, the horn of my salvation, my high tower! Somebody is gong to have a breakthrough tonight! If you are that one I want you to go to God, tell Him His Names: You are the King of Kings!!.  You are the Lord of Lords!!

When Moses was going to face Pharaoh, God gave him one promise and one promise only. He said, I will be with you. When David was going to face Goliath, King Saul said, Go, and the Lord be with you.

(Amen!)God had a great plan for Joseph and He has a great plan for you but family enemies did not want Joseph to reach his goal. They sold him to slavery. When they sold him into slavery, the enemy got him into prison but when his breakthrough came, God placed him where no enemy can touch him. Cry to God tonight, Father, place mw where no enemy can touch me! Cry to God brother!! Cry to God my sister! Almighty God! Place me where no enemy can touch me! Raise me up Lord! Put me beyond the reach of all those who want my downfall! ….  In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) When the children of Israel got to the Red Sea they looked behind and they saw the enemy that had been tormenting them all these years, coming again! They cried to God! God opened a door in the belly of the sea but the enemy kept on pursuing in the belly of the sea, until God shut the door! Cry to God, Say Father! Tonight! All those who are pursuing me, shut the door against them. Cry to God brethren! All those who are pursuing me! Ahh! Father! Shut the door against them! Shut the door! Shut the door! Thank You Jesus!

In all areas of their lives let it be well with them and let them serve you perfectly. (Amen!) Children of July shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)All right Glory be to God! Mark 10: …. That lady says our miracles will be number one miracle. Mark 10 , we want talk about open doors to breakthroughs. Mark 10….Mark 10:46-52 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.  And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.  And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. [God is going to send for someone here tonight! (Amen!)] And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. [the garment of suffering you are going to throw away for ever in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)] And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.  And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.All that a man needs in life, to succeed, irreversibly, is one major breakthrough – just one. One major breakthrough and the rest is settled. In Malachi 3:10 God said if you bring all the tithes into my house I will open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing. How many blessings?  Only one, that there will not be enough to receive. One single breakthrough and suffering will end, poverty will disappear. Even enemies will no longer be able to touch you. Somebody will have a breakthrough here tonight. (Amen!) In Luke 1:5-17 Elisabeth had one breakthrough. She gave birth to only one child but what a child! Matthew 11:11 Jesus Christ said, of all men born of a woman there had not arisen greater than John the Baptist One single child that surpassed all that had lived before him! One child and the world knew that child. There is somebody here tonight; your testimony is going to shake the whole world. (Amen!)In Samuel 1: 13- 17, Hannah had one breakthrough. For a long time she had been going to Shiloh. Years she head been going – praying, weeping, crying, fasting but one day her breakthrough came. The priest noticed her mouth. He didn’t hear her prayer but he noticed her mouth because she wasn’t praying to the priest, she was praying to God. Some people come to church to see the Pastor, some come to see the GO. Hannah came to see God! There is somebody here tonight; you will see God before you go. Ami The priest saw her mouth and her breakthrough came. Ehhh! Drunken woman! When will you stop your drunkenness? Oh she said, If I am drunk at all, I am drunk with sorrow! I know what I’m asking from God! And the man of God said, what you have asked for, may the Lord give it to you! And she said Amen! And that was her breakthrough! What you have asked God for, I decree in the name that is above every other name, receive it in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And as soon as Samuel came he opened the door to several other children. 3 more boys, 2 more girls. 1 breakthrough. Whatever is blocking your way to breakthrough, whatever is breaking your way to fruitfulness, will be destroyed tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)In Mark 5:25-34 the woman with the issue of blood had only one breakthrough. She’s been suffering for a long time. She was sick and had been going from one doctor to another and they’ve been taking her money. And they’ve been trying their best but they have failed. The tap refused to close! Every day she grew weaker and grew poorer, her suffering multiplied but one day she had a breakthrough! Just one contact with God! And that solved the problem. I’m talking to only one fellow tonight. Whatever has been draining your health, draining your strength, draining your wealth, draining your joy, is crushed tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) In John 9:1-7 Ohh! Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I should tell you, for years to come you will enjoy uninterrupted divine health. (Amen!) John 9:1-7. There was this man who was born blind. For 40 years he groped about in darkness. He never saw the sun shine. He never saw the beautiful flowers. I’m sure he had no friends. He didn’t even know what a woman looked like so he couldn’t have said, Will you marry me? And even if he said so the woman would have said, Something must be wrong with you! He had no job, no promotion. Nothing! For 49 years his life had been just one terrible, miserable circle. But one day he had a breakthrough. The Bible says, Jesus saw him…... He saw him! Not that He had not been seeing him before - but this time He saw him specially! He’s been around for 40 years but his day came. He didn’t pray. He didn’t even know that Jesus Christ was passing by but Jesus saw him! The Almighty God is going to see somebody here tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And then discussion began on him. He didn’t know they were talking about him! Who sinned, that he was born blind? Himself or his parents? They were having a meeting about him. He didn’t know but then his day had come. Today, in the counsel of heaven they will hold a discussion about you! (Amen!) One single breakthrough and the man moved out of darkness into light! He never went back to darkness. He became an amazement! He became somebody that people were saying, is it him? Is it not him? There is somebody here tonight, your darkness is about to change to light.  (Amen!)And then in the passage we read – Mark 10:46-52 Bartimaeus, the son of Timeus, sat by the highway side all day. He came from a good home but because he was blind he became a beggar. Jesus went to Jericho He did nothing there~ Read it very well. He came to Jericho, and as He was going out of Jericho…. Why did He come to Jericho? He didn’t do anything in Jericho! He came to Jericho. He was going out of Jericho because the man He was looking for was not inside Jericho, he’s by the highway side. Somebody is beside the expressway now, sitting down in an auditorium beside the expressway and Jesus is passing by to give a breakthrough to one person – one person! If you are the one let me hear you say Amen! (Amen!) One breakthrough! Read your Bible very well. That was the last time Jesus came to Jericho. He didn’t return to Jericho again! Thank God that Bartimaeus did not miss his breakthrough. You will not miss your miracle tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) One breakthrough! He cried until the wall of people surrounding him break down! Those who were saying, Shut up! Shut up! The enemies who did not want him to reach his goal. He shouted above them all. One breakthrough and Bartimaeus never begged again. There is somebody here today, after tonight you will never borrow again! (Amen!) You will never borrow again! (Amen!) In Mark 5:1-20 is the story of a man, a mad man; very, very mad man. …so mad that nobody could chain him. When they chain him with chains he will tear it off. As far as the world is concerned there is no hope for him. Even he has no hope for himself. He was already living among the dead. Before he died he was already staying in the graveyard! Then he had a breakthrough. Jesus was passing by and when the Lord of Hosts is passing by who are the enemies that can stand in the way? There were 2000 demons in this man but they all left in a moment. This man had a breakthrough! The man who was supposed to die wretched became an evangelist for God. He became a vessel unto honour in the house of God. Tonight, every demonic oppressor in your life I dismiss in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) I don’t know who I am talking to tonight but I am confident that somebody is going to become a vessel unto honour on God’s house. (Amen!) In John 4 – you can read the whole chapter – but if we just take verses 7 and 39, it tells us the story of a woman. She married five times. The marriage failed five times. On the day of wedding there’ll be joy and after some time everything went wrong. Divorce came. She met the second man. Ahhh! Sorry I made a mistake the first time. This is the correct one. There was dancing, there was rejoicing but very soon the second one was worse than the first. The third one! The fourth one! The fifth one! So when it came to the sixth one she told him, Don’t let us worry about marriage. So if everything collapses nobody will talk. She had one breakthrough. One! And all her years of failure were rolled away. One breakthrough! Jesus Christ said I must go through Samaria. I must pass through Redemption Camp tonight because there is somebody waiting (Amen!) Somebody whose years of failure must end. (Amen!) If you are that one let me hear you say Amen! (Amen!) As the Lord lives your history of failure shall be rewritten tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) In Matthew 8:1-3 Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said for the rest of this year you will only have joy! (Amen!)In Matthew 8:1-3 there was a leper and a leper is an incurable man, he’s someone with terminal cancer. Someone with AIDS, someone with sever hypertension and so on and so forth. Once he was confirmed a leper, that’s the end of the story. He’s dead but he’s not yet buried. But he had one breakthrough! One single breakthrough. He came to Jesus. He said, I know You, the power that is resident in You I know You can heal me only I am not sure whether You’ll be wiling. Then the breakthrough came, Jesus touched him. I don’t know who I’m talking to but even while I’m talking now, the Almighty God is going to touch somebody here tonight (Amen!) Everyone with any form of sickness or disease tonight is your night (Amen!); tonight is your night of healing.I was in America last month. We went for our Convention there and thank God it was an extremely successful Convention, Thank you for your prayers. Thank You for your support. Before the Convention I went to worship in one of our churches there and I heard the testimony some days ago.  There was this little child, pus was coming out of the babies eyes. The doctors have examined the child and they said they would have to operate. A little baby! If you want to begin with operation…... And they said they are not even sure if the operation will be successful or not! The father heard that we were coming to that particular church. He said before the operation let me go and pray. The service was on. It was time for prayers and I asked everybody to stand and begin to pray. The father lifted up the child: God, this is why I have come. He brought the child back and looked at the eyes – perfectly clear! Your own testimony will shake the earth! And then in 2 Kings 4:1-7 we have a special case there. There was a widow. That’s problem enough. Poor widow, heavily indebt with 2 children to look after alone! With creditors knocking at her door every time. Surrounded by neighbours who themselves were poor! She was not sure of the future. And then she had a breakthrough, The creditors pushed her to her breakthrough. They said unto her, If you don’t pay by tomorrow we will take your 2 sons and sell them! Then her breakthrough came. She cried to the man of God. He said what do you have in the house? She said, I’ve nothing only a bottle of oil. That was the beginning. By the time that day was over because of that single breakthrough, all her debts were paid. She had no more financial worries because she had plenty left over. There were no more harassments from creditors. She no longer had to fear the harassment of debt collectors. The children became secure. Her family problems were over. No more fear of the future. The siege upon her life was over because of a single breakthrough. Tonight somebody is going to have a major breakthrough. I said it, it may not appear important to you but I’m saying it again. How God will do it, I don’t know but there is somebody here, every debt you owe shall be paid by God. (Amen!) You will never borrow again! (Amen!) And then if just one breakthrough can do all this, what about those who have multiple breakthroughs? Because there are some people in the Bible who had more than one breakthrough. You see there are levels of breakthrough. If you are digging a well, when you come across water, that’s a breakthrough but if you keep digging, if you keep digging, if you dig deep enough, in the right place, you will come across oil. So there are breakthroughs and there are breakthroughs. Let me talk about some people who had multiple breakthroughs because the Word of God made it clear that there are certain things that you can be covetous about. Me, I don’t want just one breakthrough, I want many. How many breakthroughs do you want? Let’s consider some people who had two breakthroughs. Let’s take Elisha. His first breakthrough came in 1 Kings 19… Thank You Father! The Lord said somebody is here tonight who has a similar eye problem as the testimony I just shared. He said your testimony will also be the next one. 1 Kings 19:21 Elisha was walking. He was the son of a farmer. Business was good. Things were okay. He was believing that one day the father would die and he would become the inheritor of the farm but he had a breakthrough and the journey to greatness began. He had a breakthrough and the son of a farmer began the journey to becoming the father of kings. I don’t know who I’m talking to here but before you die presidents will call you Daddy, they will call you Mummy. (Amen!) And then he had a second breakthrough. The day that Elijah was going back to heaven, in 2 Kings 2: 9-15 Elijah asked him, What do you want boy? What do you want me to do for you before I be taken away from you? He knew his day has come because he knew the one who was asking him this question and he wants to give the best he can give. He had the opportunity of a life-time and he asked for something that money cannot buy. The second breakthrough gave him power, the kind of power that had rarely been seen since the. He was the son of a prophet in the morning; by the time he went to sleep he became the prophet! Tonight those of you who had had one breakthrough before you will have a second one in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Then another man who had two breakthroughs – the man at Bethesda, John 5:2-9 Many people were there by the pool, hundreds of them, maybe  they were as many as all of us here: sick people, sad people, hopeless people they were all there and he had been like that for 38 years! Then his breakthrough came! Jesus passed through everybody else and came to him alone! Him alone! And healed him – without him even asking for healing. And as soon as Jesus finished with him, He left the place. All the others, he just ignored them. If God is going to heal only one person here tonight who will that one fellow be? You better let Him know you are the One. (Amen!) And after he got healed he went to the temple and was there rejoicing and he had the second breakthrough. Like we learnt last month there are some breakthroughs that can be reversed but in John 5:14 Jesus met him and said, let me tell you the secret of irreversible blessing – Go and sin no more! He picked him out of a crowd for healing. He went to seek for him again in the temple to tell him how his healing could be permanent. Because you are here tonight, in the name that is above every other name, your joy will be permanent. And then there are some people who had 3 breakthroughs – not one, not two but three! Let’s start with Abraham Genesis 12:1-3 Ohhh! Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here He said, what has been causing you to hang your head in shame is gone forever tonight (Amen!)The power of God is just flowing, He’s healing somebody who had ribs that were broken as a result of accident,  He said there is someone here there is a movement in your head as if it were a snake. He said He has taken care of the snake. (Amen!)He said there is someone here tonight, you are not worried about yourself, you are worried about a relative who is very sick. He said I should tell you that relative will not die. (Amen!) Oh Thank You Father! Now the Lord said there is someone here and I receive this one for myself before I tell you, He said you will enjoy a long period of unclouded joy. (Amen!) Genesis 12:1-3 Abraham was an idol worshipper but he had a breakthrough when God called him, pulled him out of his father’s house. Just looked at the whole group of idol worshippers and said, You, I pick you out for blessing. That was his first breakthrough. Years past and then Genesis 18:1-14 Abraham was sitting at his house door, at his tent door and God came to visit him. That was his second breakthrough and all the promises of 25 years were fulfilled in one day! And then he had a third breakthrough when God said give me your son Isaac in Genesis 22:1-18. Do you know it is a breakthrough for God to ask you for something? God doesn’t need anything and if He needs anything He has millions of people He could ask. He went to Abraham: Give me your son. And Abraham said, You can have him Lord. That was when God swore; He said by myself have I sworn – your blessing will be irreversible. There is somebody here tonight, God will single you out and all the promises He has made to you will be fulfilled tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And then there were some people who had four breakthroughs. Let’s start with Solomon. 2 Samuel 12:24 The Bible said, as soon as Solomon was born God loved him. Breakthrough right from birth! The moment he was born he became a favourite of God. Breakthrough from day one! I’m sure many of you will say, Oh how I wish I were Solomon! But God loves you too. He loved you from the day you were born. That’s why you are still alive today. If He did not love you from day one by now you will be dead! I was sharing at the thanksgiving programme held in Abeokuta some time ago – consider all that you have gone through – anybody who is at least 40 years old, consider all that you have gone through. Think of the time when you were a child before education changed things. When they want to feed you in those days, there’s no feeding bottle. They lay you on your side and they begin to pout food in your mouth – you are eating sleeping and if you don’t want to take the food they block your nose! You are supposed to eat when you can’t breathe? When you have fever and you are hot, the time when they should be pouring cold water on you, mama will put you at the back and wrap thick cloth round you so you can get hotter still! When they give you all these concoctions they make, there is no measurement, no dosage and you survive all that and you are still alive today and you say He didn’t love you… Let me hear somebody shout 'Alleluia!' (Alleluia!).God loved Solomon from birth, He loved him. Not only that. What about the time they wanted to make him king? He didn’t know what was happening. You can read the story in 1 Kings 1:11-40. Adonaijah had already made himself king and was getting ready to wipe out every other prince in the family. Solomon was a young man. He wasn’t even too clever. He didn’t even know what was happening but he had a breakthrough. The prophet came to his mother and said You better do something quickly. Go to the king; tell him, David you promised me that my son would reign in your stead. Check the Bible, there was nowhere where David promised her, nowhere.. So the prophet was well I don’t want to say he’s lying, let’s say he was being political. So the mother went to the father: Your majesty you promised me, you swore to me by the name of God that my son would reign after you! David said, Ahh!! Okay, if you say so. Maybe I have forgotten. If we are going to make him king where are we gong to get the prophet now? The prophet said: I am here. On your day of breakthrough everybody you need would be there in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And so they made Solomon king. The father was still alive. That day there were three kings in Israel: David the king; Adonaijah who made himself king and Solomon that David made king. Very unusual but it was the day of breakthrough. When your day comes, every law that must be bended will be bended for you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) As soon as he became king, he became king just before the enemy closed in and then he decided to give God a thousand burnt offerings and he had a third breakthrough 2 Chronicles 1:6:12 – and God visited him. Not only did God visit him, God gave him a blank cheque – ask whatever you want. That’s a major breakthrough! That’s why I am sure God will visit somebody here tonight (Amen!) And then all he asked for he got, what he didn’t ask for God added. You know there are some things you need that you don’t even know that you need them. God will give all of them tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And then finally he had another breakthrough in 2 Chronicles 7:5-22 He has finished building the house of God. He had offered to God 22,000 cows and 120,000 sheep! And God visited him a second time. He got 2 visitations from the Lord and when God came the second time, not only did He confirm the covenant of David with him, he gave him a warning: don’t do this so that your blessings may last forever; don’t do this so that you will never annoy me. It is a special grace for God to tell you what to do so that your blessing will last forever. There is somebody here tonight the grace never to annoy God again will be released to you tonight. (Amen!) Ahh! Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I should tell you that the invader shall be sent packing. (Amen!) He said there is someone here they say your sperm count was low and they began to treat you and instead of the thing increasing, it was decreasing. Daddy asked me to tell you – go for another test, you are completely all right. (Amen!) Peter had 4 breakthroughs 4. The first one was in Luke 5:1-11. You remember the story very well – he had fished all night, caught nothing and then Jesus came and everything changed. Peter, the fisherman who would have died a fisherman became a fisher of men. Because of the breakthrough you are going to have tonight your future is going to change completely!Then in Matthew 16:13-19, Jesus was asking the disciples, Who do men say that I am? Ahh! Some say that you are Elijah, some say that you are Jeremiah, they say you are one of the prophets. Okay. Now, Who do you say that I am? And Peter had a breakthrough God spoke to him – gave him an inspiration. He opened his mouth and said. You are the Christ. And Jesus looked at him and said, Peter, It is not flesh and blood that revealed this to you. Okay because you have said it, I give you the keys of the kingdom. The master key that you have been believing God for will be released to you tonight, in Jesus Name! In John 21…. Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight He said the time of your establishment is near. (Amen!) John 21:15-17 Peter had a third breakthrough. He had messed up. Denied the Lord 3 times. There was no hope for him: lied, swore, denied the Master. And after the Master left, he said, I’m going fishing again. And then he had his third breakthrough. And the Lord appeared to him again and gave him the opportunity to say to him three times: Peter do you love me? I love you Lord! 3 times! He affirmed him 3 times. Restored him and gave him permission to feed his sheep. God has said it to us here before: I am repeating it tonight – Every Samson that had lost their hair, in the mighty Name of Jesus your hair shall grow again! (Amen!) And then Peter had a fourth breakthrough, on the Day of Pentecost, in Acts 2:1-4. The Holy Ghost came. Power came. Peter the fisherman became Peter the Apostle and there was no looking back from that time. There is somebody here tonight – you will cross over to your destiny tonight! (Amen!) And then there were some people w ho had 5 breakthroughs! I will go quickly over them because of time…. O Thank You Father! The Lord says, every spiritual; handcuff is broken tonight. (Amen!)Let’s take Jacob. He had 5 breakthroughs. Genesis 25:29-34: That is when he sod pottage. He prepared food and Esau came hungry. Give me food! Okay, if you want food give me your birthright. What Esau should have said, is Perish with your food! My birthright? Me? He ought to have slapped the boy. But no! You want birthright? Take birthright and give me food!  Every birthright that God has for you, that is in wrong hands shall change hands tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Then he had a second breakthrough. In Genesis 27:24-23 That was the day he got his father’s blessing and you know it is  a breakthrough because the father said: I know your voice, this is the voice of Jacob! The father could have said, Wait, I’m not sure you are the one, don’t deceive me. I know your voice. I maybe blind but my ears are not deaf! But he didn’t say that. And as soon as he finished blessing him, as soon as he got out, Esau came.  Because his day of breakthrough had come God kept trouble away until he had settled the case of Jacob. Tonight, whatever God has to stop to settle your case, He will stop it in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)Then in Genesis 28:10-15, he got a third breakthrough. He was running away from home he fell asleep. When he was tired, he fell asleep. Tonight you too will have a dream! And he saw God, God Himself! God should have rebuked Him. Boy what is wrong with you? You stole your brother’s birthright! You stole your bother’s blessing. That is not what God said. He said, Son, I’m the God of your father Abraham. The promise I made to Abraham, I make it to you now!  When God himself is the one pronouncing the blessing. In Numbers 23:13-20. When God blesses it is a command. Nobody can reverse tonight. When God says you are blessed, nobody can change it. That is why I am saying tonight, as the representative of the most High God, you will rest. (Amen!) And then he got another breakthrough. Genesis 30:27-41 He had one brilliant business idea. Only one! The uncle said to him. How do you want me to pay your wages? Oh! You want to know? Good! Every animal that is born that has stripes – let it be mine. Whichever one is born that is just regular. That will be yours. And to start, all those that have stripes now let’s clear them  Let’s give them to you. From now on any new one that has stripes – that’s mine. The uncle said, Wonderful, wonderful! He didn’t know the boy had already got an inspiration. Any time the animals got pregnant, those that were big and strong among them, he has prepared sticks making stripes on them. He will put it where those animals come to drink.. Heaven has told him, if they conceive looking at those trees, their children will have stripes. So every striped animal, anytime they delivered – ah they are my own. When the weak ones want to get pregnant, he will remove the tree. Within years he has taken over the wealth of the Uncle. Do you know you are God’s children? You are God’s children and what belongs to your Father, belongs to you? I didn’t hear your ‘Amen!’ Your Father, says silver is mine, gold is mine. The cattle upon a thousand hills is mine. But as of now, they are in the hands of wrong people. Before the end of this year, as the Lord lives, wealth will change hands in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And then he had another victory. He had become very great now. He was going home but the former enemy was waiting for him, the man whose blessing he stole was waiting for him and he had hired 400 men to come and deal with him. Then he had a breakthrough in Genesis 32:24-29 he had the greatest breakthrough in his life as he wrestled with God in prayer his name was changed. And one man became a nation. Jacob became Israel. One major breakthrough…. I don’t know who I’m talking to, but before you die you will become a multitude. And then what about David? He also had 5 breakthroughs. The first one was when they called him to make him king. The second time was when Goliath showed up. The third time was when he was anointed king over Judah. The fourth time was when he was anointed king over Israel. And then the fifth time was when he decided to build a temple for God. That was the day when Almighty God said to him, David, because you said you want to build a temple for me, I will establish your kingdom forever! That was the day when David, the King of Israel became David, the father of Jesus. Today there is somebody here whose greatness, whose importance, whose prominence will be established forever! (Amen!) Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here He said, your days of obscurity are over. (Amen!)  The Lord said there is someone here, He said I should tell you your celebration shall be mighty! (Amen!)  The Lord said there is someone here He said, because of you I will move your family from stagnation to promotion! (Amen!) Ohh! My Father, Thank You! The Lord said there is someone here He said, I will replace your night of sorrow with a prolonged day of joy! (Amen!)Ohhh! my Lord! The Lord said there is someone here, He said before you die, you will be one of the greatest of your time. (Amen!)  Oh my, my. my! Alleluia.  The Lord said there is someone here tonight He said, right now, very few people know you exist, but before you die, your nation will never forget you! (Amen!) Oh Lord, have mercy!  The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said I should just tell you that the crawler shall soar very soon. (Amen!)  Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name! Blessed be Your Holy Name! There are all kinds of healings going on at the same time… Now what are the keys that open the doors to breakthroughs? I will try to be as fast as I can but there are certain keys that open doors to breakthroughs. Key number one is a realization that things can be better than they are. People who get breakthroughs are people who either have seen better days or they can at least see people who are doing better than they are doing. David said in Psalm 51:12 He said, restore to me the joy of my salvation. That means that once upon a time he had joy but he had lost it. Every thing that you have lost will be restored to you in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And then there are some of us who will sit down and we look at other people and we say, God, why? What’s going on? Psalm 73:3 David said, I was envious, I was envious when I saw the prosperity of the wicked… and I can say Amen to that. I see the wicked, those who are not even children of God. I see the way they waste money, money that I could use for the kingdom of God. I don’t like it at all. I don’t know about you – I’ve refused to die poor! Say it loud, I refuse to die poor! As a small child from a very poor family, there was a man in our village. He was the only one who had a car. He would drive in. The car was shining. And I looked at that – my father didn’t have a bicycle. This is somebody, he’s a human being! I said, Things have to change. And I looked at my surrounding – the house with thatched roof! Every time it rained, no sleep at night! Things have to change. How many of you want things to change for the better for you? It’s going to happen in the mighty Name of Jesus! (Amen!) That’s key number one – you must have that realization that things can be better. Key number two is a realization that change is possible. It is possible for things to change for the better. It is possible! After all God said in Isaiah 3:10 Say ye to the righteous, it shall be well. Your tomorrow will be all right. Let me hear you say Amen loud and clear! (Amen!) One day I asked my father, this man who drives in this beautiful car, tell me his story. I was little but God loved me from childhood,`like He loves you. Ahhh!  My father said., Oh his father s poorer than myself but he was determined to learn, he was determined to make a way in his studies. He was so poor that anytime any one wants to grind pepper, he will volunteer. Let me help you grind the pepper. And in the process of grinding the pepper he will allow some of it to fall to the ground so that after he finished he can pick those ones and then add salt to it and that is what he will use to soak gari I said, Is that so? And now he’s riding a car! I just knew, I knew then, if he made it through that hardship, I knew I would make it. How many of you are sure you will make it? I want you to shout ‘Alleluia!’ in advance (Alleluia!) And then key number three is that there is a changeless changer. Hebrews 13:8: Jesus Christ, the same yesterday and today and forever. He doesn’t change but He can change situations. My father said, that fellow you are looking at, that is how he struggled until he left secondary school and then my father said, and God brought a helper. God brought a helper. You know I’ve been asking you to pray recently –from the East, from the West, from the North, from the South, from heaven above, God send help to me! You want to say that one? From the East, from the West, from the North, from the South, from heaven above, Almighty God send help to me! He said, God sent help to me and I know God will send help to me too because I know God is fair to all. Acts 10:34-35 says God is no respecter of people but in all nations those who fear Him and do His will are accepted of Him. The Almighty God will be fair to you tonight in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)  So even then, little as I was, all I need is an encounter with God. If somehow I can have an encounter with God things will change after all Luke 1: 37 says with God nothing shall be impossible. 2 Peter 3:8 it said, a thousand years is just like one day with God. I made some calculations. It means 2 hours of divine help is the same thing as 80 years of human struggle. 2 hours of divine help is equal to 80 years of human struggle! As you leave this Camp 2 hours of divine help will be coming upon someone in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) So what are the keys for breakthrough? A realization that things can be better; a realization that change is possible, realization that there is a changeless changer; a realization that he is fair to all; a realization that you need an encounter with this changeless changer and then you need focus. Luke 9:62 Jesus said if you want to have an encounter with me, no looking back, no looking sideways – straight on! Young as I was, I made up my mind: I’m not going to die small. And temptations came to take my attention away from the goal that I’ve set.  Way back in 1961 as a school cert., I was teaching in a modern school. And there were beautiful girls there. I was earning 15 pounds a month, which was a lot of money then! I just spent about one pound to feed myself and my houseboy for about one month! And there was this lady who said, Well how about marriage now? I said, No, no marriage until I become a graduate. When is that going to be? I don’t know. Maybe another seven years but until I get my own degree like that man who – I say, no marriage. How many of you are going to reach the top? You have to focus, you must know where you are going and nothing must distract your attention. That’s an important key. Another key is rugged determination. This is what I want, this is what I must do. Paul; said in Philippians 3:8 I have lost everything and it didn’t bother me because I want to win Christ. I don’t care what it costs! I must win Christ! I know you wont’ believe me but it is true all the same. 1955 – 50 years ago, so you will know how old I must be then – I did the entrance exam to Ilesha grammar school and then they said we should come and pay deposit – two pounds. My father said, Two pounds? Where am I going to get it? My mother called me into the room. She said, what ‘s wrong with you? Don’t you know you have to look at the house before you name your child? That was deposit! Not the school fees itself! I said, I am going to the Grammar School. Where are we going to get the money? I don’t know but I ‘m going to the Grammar School because if I don’t go, I’m going to die here! That’s the truth of the matter!  I see the entire land that my father had. It wasn’t enough to supply him with money to put iron sheet over the roof. And now there are children and when the man dies they distribute this thing among the children. What is there to divide? I said, I’m going to the grammar school. My mother said, Go! So I went on strike – hunger strike. I say, I’m not eating; I must go to the grammar school! They thought it was a joke. First day, second day and I’m the only son of my mother. By the third day she panicked. They called me into the bedroom. Please don’t shame us. I will buy you a good dress for Christmas. I said, I say I don’t want dress for Christmas. ….. I will see you at the top! in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) My father came home, my mother told him what had been happening. What are we going to do? My father had a ram, extraordinarily big. In those days they used to have what they call Agric Show so if you have big yam or something, you take it to Agric Show and they give you a prize. My father wanted to take his ram to Agric Show for a big prize bit when they looked at me they sold the ram – for 2 pounds. That will tell you how big the ram must be. That was how I paid deposit. But now we paid the deposit how are we going to get the remaining? When God sees that you are determined, He will send help! Focus, rugged determination then hard work. Can you imagine somebody that they had to sell this, sell that before they send him to school, failing one class? The parents will say thank you very much you’ve solved the problem for us! Proverbs 22:25 Seest thou a man diligent in his business, he will stand before kings and not before mean men. Some people want to be great but they don’t want to work hard! It will not happen! God is a rewarder of those w ho diligently seek him!  I don’t have the time to tell you the rest of my story but I became a graduate and I said I am not satisfied I must continue. So I came for MSc. and when I was writing the first chapter of my thesis, I took it to my supervisor and he marked it with red all over! Totally unacceptable! By then I was married. As soon as I became a graduate, I married. The child was already at home and look at what this man wrote. How do I go home and tell my child I failed? They will say who sent you Baba? For six months, six months at the University of Lagos, I sat down and got to work. Six months I did not see Yaba! Whatever it’s going to take, we will give it to it, I am not going home a failure! Is anybody here tonight who will decide – I will not fail? Say it, I will not fail. I got my M.Sc. I was not satisfied. When you get your M.Sc  they still call you Mr. Whether you have M.Sc or B.Sc. It is still Mr. I want to be at the top. So I decided I will do my PhD. The Bible says, he that endures to the end shall be saved. You know God gave us a promise tonight and I don’t know if you paid attention to it. He said there is someone here, very few people know you now, He said before you die your nation will not forget you. Did you receive that? I went for the PhD. Ask my wife – the last 6 months, I told her, my dear, my darling, You know we are not quarreling, If I remember to greet you in the morning,, take it. If I don’t – no quarrel. This PhD, when I have got it, we can begin the.,.. Ask her! She will tell you, whenever visitors come, I run to the toilet, sit down there doing my mathematics … she will come and knock at the door: Come out! Let me ask you one more time how many of you will reach the top? Then, no matter how determined, or focused; no matter how hard-working, unless God supports you, you will still fail. Everybody who had a breakthrough, that I’ve been mentioning one by one, one by one, they all had a divine visitation. Whether it is Abraham or David, or Elijah or Elisha or Peter any one we have mentioned they had a divine visitation, they had a divine support. They had divine direction. I told you the story about my PhD thesis. I had worked hard for 18 months. It got to a place I didn’t even know what to do next. Then one evening, I was about to go to bed. I have studied, studied, I got tired, I pushed it aside and I opened my Bible to read, to pray before I sleep and I opened Exodus 14,the crossing of the Red Sea. As I finished reading I heard God speak – son that is the solution to your problem! How can the crossing of the Red Sea in those days be the solution to the PhD problem at the University of Lagos? How can? He said bring your equations. I brought them quickly. Put this on the left. Put this on the right. Put this on the left. Put this on the right. Put this on the left. Put this on the right.  Sort this together. Sort this together. Combine. He said, that’s what happened at the Red Sea. The sea parted, one on the left, one on the right. The children of Israel passed through and it came together again. 5 hours later what I’ve been struggling over for 18 months was over – 5 hours! Don’t forget brethren, Peter fished all night and caught nothing. Jesus came and said, Launch into the deep, throw your net to the right. Divine direction. All of us have been struggling. We have not been waiting for divine direction. Who are the people that God will direct? - Those who are doing His Will; those who are pleasing Him. They are the one He will give one idea - one idea, just one. So when they say, do the will of God, pay your tithes, give offerings, win souls and you say I don’t know how that can help. It is the Almighty God who can direct the heart of kings. When God wants to pick a prisoner and put him on the throne what did He do? He gave him a dream that he could not interpret. That God is still on His throne.  When God wanted to take a shepherd boy and put him on the throne, nobody remembered him! God sent for him! He sent for him. He sent for him. They were not going to allow Bartimaeus to receive his breakthrough they said Shut Up! Who told you that somebody like you can ever get out of begging? Jesus stood still. He said, I’m not going anywhere until I settle the case of this boy. Divine involvement. The Bible says that if a man’s ways please God He will cause even his enemies to be at peace with him. If a man’s ways please God…… Let’s stand. If you are here tonight and you are not yet born again, I don’t have time to waste. If you like come, if you like don’t, stay in your seat, keep suffering. Nobody can help you except God. But if you want Him to help you, you have to surrender your life to Him. So if you want to give your life to Jesus come now! The rest of us lift your voice to the Almighty, Father, let my ways please You! Let my ways please You! If you want to give your life to Jesus, come now, come very quickly! Come now, I’m  about to pray for you who want to give their life to Jesus. Come now, come and surrender your life. He will forgive you and give you a new beginning! Come now! Come now! Come now! … Let my ways please You! Let my ways please You! You are the only one who can help me! Let my ways please You…Lord let my ways please You let me become obedient to You in all things. Call on Him! .. Those of you who want to give your life to Jesus, ask God to save your soul; ask God to be merciful to you; ask God to forgive all your sins; tell Him you will serve Him from tonight onwards. Come from all over the place. I will count up to ten. If you want to give your life to Jesus, you must be here before I count ten. 1.. ..and as you come begin to talk to Him – Father, save my soul tonight, forgive my sins tonight, 2… this is your day of salvation. It will be your first day of breakthrough when you surrender your life to Jesus Christ! 3.. 4… 5… 6… 7…  God is calling you say come!  He said come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy-laden and I will give you rest. But you have to come first; you have to come first. He will be merciful to you if you will come to Him. 8… It’s the last countdown now. Hurry up quickly! Come and give your life to the Almighty God! Come and surrender your life to Him. He’s waiting for you tonight. He wants to save your soul. Call on Him! Ask Him to be merciful unto you! Ask Him to save your soul! 9… Call on him for salvation. Ask Him to forgive all your sins. Those of you who are still coming, hurry up now, this is your day of salvation. Come before it is too late, Come now because I’m about to pray; I’m about to pray for the salvation of your soul. Make sure you get here before I finish praying. It is God who is calling you. This is your own day of salvation. Thank You Father!  Glory be to Your Holy Name! In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Our Father and our God we want to thank You. Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for loving us. Thank You because You have loved us since the day we were born. Thank You for bringing us here tonight. Please accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). I’m committing these Your children who have come forward into your faith. Be merciful unto them. Forgive their sins. Cleanse them in Your blood. Save their soul. Write their names in the Book of Life and beginning from today, give them a brand new beginning. when they call on You, answer them in Jesus’  Name! and let them serve you till the very end. In Jesus’ mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen Praise the Lord! Now I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight because from tonight I’ll be praying for you and I assure you, God will answer my prayers. So I’m going to need your names, your address and your prayer request. So if you follow this brother, he will lead you where some Pastors are waiting for you, They will collect this information form you and then  he will bring you back. You can begin to go now, rejoicing. Congratulations. The next prayer we want to pray is only for those who want to reach the top. I want you to stand on your feet and cry to God yourself. Cry to God! Say, Father, Help me! Help me! Go ahead, talk to the Almighty God! Help me! Help me! Help me! Help me!… It is time for laying on of hands. Tonight the men of God will be laying hands on you to confirm what the Lord had already done so that by the time you leave this morning, your breakthrough will already be established in heaven. (Amen!)  … Your breakthroughs will last forever in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) I know there may be a few people still coming for laying on of hands, but for those who are Covenant Partners who would have started their fasting and prayer on the 1 July the first one of course is a lot of thanksgiving to God. He has done great things so we need to really, really praise Him. For all He has done since the beginning of the year we need to really, really praise Him. And then I want you to pray that God will do a new thing, in your own lives as individuals. In your families, in the Redeemed Christian Church of God and in Nigeria as a whole. New, beautiful , glorious things. And then you want to call on Him to send help to us, as individuals, as families, as a church and as a nation. – that God will send help to us. And then number four we will pray for divine favour – favour for us as individuals, favour for our families, favour for h=His Church and favour for Nigeria. And then we would want us to pray specially for the Convention, that God will make it the biggest and the best that we have had so far, that all needs will be met; that every sinner who comes to the Convention will be saved; that every sick person who comes to the Convention will be healed; that anyone in any form of bondage that comes to the Convention will be set free. Ask God for journey mercies for those who are coming both to and fro. Pray for security while we are here. Pray that the homes that the people will leave behind when coming to the Convention will be secure and at peace. Pray that there will be mighty testimonies. And then pray for our nation. Thank God that He is already answering our prayers for Nigeria. Pray that He will answer all our prayers for Nigeria and then pray for revival. That God would send revival to us as a nation and as a church and as individuals. Pray for those who are jobless that before the end of July they will have jobs. Pray for all businessmen and women, that God will continue to prosper them. Pray for those who need promotions. Pray for the singles and the widows. Pray for the barren. Pray for all children, all youth, all students. Pray for rapid church growth. Pray for all Pastors and their families. Pray for all workers in the various departments but pray especially for the choir and the ushers because they’ll be very busy during the Convention. Pray for yourself and pray for the General Overseer and his family. Pray that the period of waiting on the Lord will not be in vain. And the Almighty God will answer all your prayers in Jesus’ mighty Name! Now before we go and thank the Almighty God I’ve good news for you.  Yesterday evening at the maternity center, God gave us a boy and a girl. That means the blessings of tonight have been shared equally. Let somebody shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). Because you have praised me, you can ask too before the doors close. (Amen!) Let’s put our hands together for the Almighty! Amen! Let’s be seated. If the ushers miss you wave your hand they will come and attend to you or better still if they have not got to you just shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) My name is Abdul Kareem John. I’m a police officer. I have witnesses to my testimony. Daddy GO is my first witness and Pastor Adegoke, the then State Pastor of Edo State is the other witness to this testimony. On 20m July 2001 Daddy GO came to Benin City for Holy Ghost Service. I wasn’t at the Ogbe Stadium. But we were the first people, the policemen he met at the tollgate.  As he was coming, I was in uniform. I was then a junior police officer, a sergeant. It ministered to my heart – do you know that this man is going to pass this way today? I said Yes, I saw the poster. He said, but I can turn your mourning to joy, if only you can secure his attention. I told my daddy that is a very small thing. Immediately Daddy GO came, he came in a simple way – nobody knew he was the one. He just came in a car not much escort but I sighted him when Pastor Adegoke welcomed him. And I went to him, he has already rolled all the glass. I knocked the glass of his vehicle, I said Daddy. e rolled down the glass, maybe he thought I want to ask for particulars! Alleluia! At that time I was already four years as graduate. I have gone for cadet interview several times, I was not taken. 1999, a retired IG gave me a letter. He phoned Mr. Smith: Kareem is my boy. Take him. The IG promised I would be taken bit that year I was not taken. Something was wrong but I know that when the right man is passing at my roadblock and I can cling to the hem of his garment, everything that is wrong in my life can be made whole in Jesus' Name!! He just stretched forth his hand. As I knelt down, I held Daddy’s hand, I placed it on my cap, I forgot to remove my police cap. I placed it on my cap and said Daddy lay hands on me. He spoke only two words to my life and when we were going for the other interview, the Lord told me I should not collect any letter! .. I did not collect any letter. The only thing that happened to me is that when we got to Abuja 3 IGs including the present IG were asking questions and they asked me a question on something I did in class 3 in the secondary school. Nobody knew it out of 20 of us. But I felt another hand laid on me in that interview hall. Somebody brought my class 3 notes to the secondary school and I saw the answer and I rose on my feet and I said, I know the answer and immediately I answered, the DIG said, Kareem is a good boy! Pick him! I won an award during the course in Police Staff College. Today I am the patrol and guard officer. It is not just promotion. While I was a sergeant I was not having a servant but now I am an ASP I am entitled to servant allowance from Federal Government. The servant allowance I am collecting now is the same salary I was receiving before – it is triple promotion. Daddy I thank your God and I thank you for praying for me that very day! July 20 2001 I was the police officer you prayed for at the tollgate. God is my Jehovah Rapha, the greatest healer. He has healed me of my infirmity. This happened 31 years ago when I had my last child. I started having pains on this left hand. The pain was so much I was afraid. They said yes there is a lump there it is not malignant, that I could come in for operation just for cosmetic reasons but my husband rejected it that he didn’t want any operation, that operation is operation!. And I went back home, nursing the pain for such a long time and after some time another thing added on to it and started having heat and burning sensation in my heart.  I was wondering. This thing persisted for long. I would take analgesic… this thing persisted for long. But thank God, last July, a year now, I came for Holy Ghost night and our Daddy was preaching and heard from the Lord as usual that somebody here had been healed of a burning sensation in the body. By the time he said it I was still nursing that pain and I said, God haven’t I been healed of this? And the time for testimony a woman came out and testified that she had been healed from that burning sensation. And I said okay but I remember that GO said one time that even if you don’t receive your healing on the spot, go back home with the faith that you have been healed.  I went home with that. After about 2 weeks everything cleared.Many times I came to this Camp. Many people gave testimony. I used to say in my mind that which time am I coming out to share a testimony. But glory be to God Almighty. I am here to give testimony. I was due for promotion in my work place past three years ago. My boss refused to promote me. I don’t know what really happened. But I the month of April this year some workers were to be sent away. I'm among them to be sent away. In the month of April I came to this Camp. I pray the Almighty God. What came out of Daddy’s mouth, I received it. In the month of May, I was among the people who were called back. Who can heal? Who can deliver? Who can promote? Who can give breakthrough? Stand on your feet and shout a big Alleluia! (Alleluia!) … Thank You for a wonderful night. Thank You for all the souls that have been saved. Thank You for those whose testimony we will hear next month. (Amen!) Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) This is the offering of your children. Bless it O Lord; sanctify it; use it for your glory. Anyone here tonight who came with a special request, before the sun rises let them have testimonies. (Amen!) All those who might say oh how I wish the GO might pray for me personally. I pray for them now my Father and my God, give them their miracles in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Before this month is over, everybody here today, Father give us something to shout about (Amen!); give us something to dance about (Amen!); give us something to praise!  Amen!
