OPEN DOORS TO TOTAL RECOVERY 4th of March, 2005
Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) Whenever the Almighty God wants to do something extra special in the Redeemed Christian Church of God He gives us a sign and the sign He usually gives us is a baby boy. Now as at 9 o’clock this evening 3 babies had been born and all tree are boys!!! To me that is a very significant sign that what God is going to do in your life tonight 300 years will not be enough to testify!
I want to encourage you tonight to remain 100% awake. This is not going to be an ordinary night at all! Now I want you to remember the story of Saul, Paul and Silas, how they had lost everything, they’ve lost their freedom because they were in prison; they’d lost their health because they had been beaten so badly everywhere was aching; they’ve lost their wealth, everything they had, those who took them into prison had confiscated. They had almost lost hope because tomorrow looked very bleak, it looked as if they were even going to lose their lives. But they had one thing left, they had their voices and they used their voices powerfully. They praised God so mightily… Go ahead, Praise the Almighty!! Praise Him! ….
I will lift You high because You are worthy to be praised! Go ahead! Don’t stop! Praise Him!….. We give You all glory Lord! We give You all honour! We give You all adoration! May Your Name forever be glorified! Lord we bless Your name! Lord we bless Your name! Lord we bless Your name! …… Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have worshipped. (Amen!)
I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God, loud and clear and say Father, visit all of us tonight particularly me! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty! Father, visit all of us tonight! Particularly me! Lord God Almighty Unchangeable Changer! Visit all of us tonight! Particularly me Lord, particularly me! Visit everybody tonight. Visit me specially. Let me have a special visitation tonight. In every facet of my life, let me have a special visitation tonight. In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
Then you lift you voice to Him and you say: Father, in this hour of total recovery, don’t let me go home empty-handed. Let’s speak to the Almighty! In this hour of total recovery don’t let me go home empty-handed! Oh please don’t let me go home empty-handed! In this crucial hour of total recovery don’t let me go home empty-handed! Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Holy Name, Lord! This hour of total recovery, don’t let me go home empty-handed! Don’t let me go home empty-handed! Don’t let me go home empty-handed! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
Then you lift your voice to Him and you say: Father, More than anything else, I want more of you. I want to know You more! I want to love You more! I want to serve You more! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty! More than anything else Lord, I want more of You! I want more of You! I want to know You more! I want to love You more! I want to serve You more! I want more of You Lord! I want more of You! More of You! more of You! I want more of You! I want more of You Lord! I want more of You! I want more of You! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Thank You Lord! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
If you can find a place to kneel shall we go on our knees before our Maker? Angels are singing, You are worthy O Lord! Alleluia!!….. Worship Him! He’s worthy! …… O Thank You Father! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Thank You Father! In Jesus’ mighty Name we worship! (Amen!)
The Lord said there’s someone here, He said, I’m the One who promised to make you laugh. I will surely bring it to pass. (Amen!)
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said, because of the size of the miracles coming your way you are going to need prayers to handle the joy. (Amen!)
Father, we just want to bless Your Name. We know this is the night when we shall recover all. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name! There’s no one like You Daddy! King of Kings! Lord of Lords! The I AM that I Am the Unchangeable Lord! The Ancient of Days the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, the Unchangeable Changer!, the Light of the World, the Rock of Ages! The Lion of the Tribe of Judah!! The Great Provider, the Great Physician, the Great Restorer! The Lord of Hosts! Glory be to Your Holy Name! Father, Glory be to Your Holy Name! Accept our worship in Jesus’ Name! We cannot surprise You, but You can surprise us! Tonight surprise everybody! In a glorious way, In a powerful way, In a miraculous way, In a divine way surprise everyone of us. And at the end of it all, take all the glory and give us the blessings. Thank You Father! Glory be to Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)
While we were worshipping the Almighty, Daddy just said, to start us off, Daddy just said, He healed 25,000 people! (Amen!) Including one fellow who had been having very serious toothache. Your toothache has disappeared if you will notice! (Amen!)
And He said He performed a couple of operations particularly for hernia and some tubes that were blocked had been opened! (Amen!) Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)
Because once we start now, only God knows how things will begin to roll we want to do two things very quickly and then we’ll go on undisturbed. It has pleased the Almighty God in His infinite mercy to give to the Redeemed Christian Church of God a cable television station and since the station is already transmitting throughout the world including the one we are holding now I will love to formally launch the Dove Television service in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia’! You will wonder why we chose the name “Dove” because Dove is a symbol of peace and our Lord Jesus Christ is the symbol of peace and Dove is the symbol of the Holy Spirit and we are right now in the dispensation of the Holy Spirit and when it comes to registration of television stations all over the world we suddenly discovered that nobody is opposed to the dove. So Dove Television Services is the Cable service of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. For the time being here in Nigeria our programmes will be downloaded from the satellite by a new station that is coming into the country that is called TITV for the time being. Is anybody happy about that? If I were you I would smile because they are watching you in India, they are watching you in Iraq, they are watching you all over the world!
The second thing that I want to do very quickly is that by the grace of God we have published a new book and it contains the sermons preached at the last Congress, the Master Key and there are only few copies so it is not for sale. I just want to give it to my friends……1 Samuel 30:1-8 and then 18-20. 1 Samuel 30:1-8
And it came to pass, when David and his men were come to Ziklag on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the south, and Ziklag, and smitten Ziklag, and burned it with fire; And had taken the women captives, that were therein: they slew not any, either great or small, but carried them away, and went on their way.
So David and his men came to the city, and, behold, it was burned with fire; and their wives, and their sons, and their daughters, were taken captives. Then David and the people that were with him lifted up their voice and wept, until they had no more power to weep.
(I decree to somebody here tonight – You will never weep again! (Amen!)
And David's two wives were taken captives, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite. And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.
(The Almighty is going to do something for you today, which will be an encouragement. (Amen!)
And David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech's son, I pray thee, bring me hither the ephod. And Abiathar brought thither the ephod to David. And David enquired at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.
Tonight somebody is going to recover all (Amen!) I didn’t say everybody, I didn’t say everybody…. I said somebody, somebody will recover all. (Amen!)Then verses 18-20
And David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away: and David rescued his two wives. And there was nothing lacking to them, neither small nor great, neither sons nor daughters, neither spoil, nor any thing that they had taken to them: David recovered all. (Before this night is over it shall be said of you: You recovered all!
(Amen!) Let’s talk from there because of time. We’ll come to the various verses later on.
Jesus Christ said in Mark 9:23, He said, if thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. If only you can believe. Everything that the enemy has stolen from you before the sun rises you shall recover all. (Amen!)
For example it is possible to recover your health and when I say it is possible to recover your health, it doesn’t matter how long you have been sick. The woman with the issue of blood had been sick 12 years. In a single moment she recovered all. It doesn't matter even if the doctors had said you are incurable. Namaan was incurable but in a single day he recovered all because there is someone by whose stripes you are healed because that person, the One whose name is Jesus, according to Hebrews 13:8 is the same yesterday, the same today, the same forever. Whatever He has done before He can do it again. He had cured the incurable before, and I decree tonight every incurable disease shall be cured tonight. (Amen!) Whatever the name may be – cancer, AIDS, whatever name they may call it – before this night is over you will testify (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here; the weapons meant for your destruction shall destroy the manufacturers. (Amen!)
If only you can believe it is possible to recover your wealth. In Joel 2:21-26 the Almighty God said He will restore the years that the canker worm had eaten. Like I shared with those of you who came to the Holy Communion service yesterday, Israel laboured for 430 years without pay. Papa worked for nothing. Grandfather worked for nothing. Great-grandfather worked for nothing but in one night, one single night the salaries that should have been paid for 430 years were paid in one single night. There is somebody here tonight; poverty was the landmark of your family. Beginning from tonight when they talk of your family they will be talking of wealth. (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said, those who think you are finished are going to be dazzled by your success. (Amen!)
If only you can believe it is possible to recover your freedom because in John 8:36 the Bible tells us that He came to set the captives free that whoever the Son sets free shall be free indeed. You have a friend, you have the Almighty, the Commander-in –Chief of the hosts of heaven, the General of all generals, the Admiral of all admirals, the Air Marshall of all Air Marshals, the One who had never lost a battle. Let me hear you shout His Name! Jesus!!! Call His Name one more time! Jesus!!!! He will speak a word tonight. (Amen!) And every captive shall be free. (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I should just tell you, your grass shall be green again. (Amen!)
If only you can believe it is possible for you to recover all those treasures that money cannot buy,. In Mark 5:35-41 the only daughter of Jairus died. And as far as Jairus is concerned you can take all the money he has if only you can give him back his daughter. But he didn't have to spend a kobo. The Great Restorer brought back that which money cannot buy.
Judges16:18-22 the Bible tells us how Samson lost his power, how his head was shaven, how the enemy grabbed him and dug out his eyes but immediately the Bible added but his hair began to grow again. Immediately, even as the enemy were capturing him, digging out his eyes, the Bible added that his hair began to grow again. To every Samson here present today – your hair shall grow again! (Amen!)
Alleluia! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said the story of you life is that of an uncompleted building but He said I should tell you, before this year is out, it shall be completed. (Amen!)
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, your heart had been giving you trouble, the Lord asked me to tell you He has given you a brand new heart! (Amen!)
I say your power can be restored because it is written God has spoken once, twice have I heard this that power belongs to God. The power to perform miracles for the Almighty God shall be deposited in you anew this day. (Amen!)
If only you can believe, the opportunities that you have lost can be recovered. I know they normally say that opportunities once lost can never be regained but that is when you leave God out of the calculations. In 2 Kings 22:19-22 the Bible tells us that the men of Jericho had been living under a curse for years, the city was full of sorrow, death, all kinds of problems. And all along Elijah was going up and down among them and they didn't quite realize who was he among them until one day they watched and they saw chariots of fire, horses of fire taking this man away. Ah! This man could have broken the curse on our land. What are we going to do now that he's gone? But suddenly they saw Elisha pick up the mantle of Elijah, smote River Jordan. The river parted for Elisha like it parted for Elijah. Ahh! Our opportunity had been restored and that very day the curse on their city was destroyed.
Let me first of all start by saying, tonight every curse on your family shall be destroyed. (Amen!) If I were you I would say Amen to that. (Amen!)
Every curse upon your village or city shall be destroyed. (Amen!) Please join me to say the next Amen. Every curse on Nigeria shall be destroyed. (Amen!) And then I want to decree in the mighty name of Jesus! That every opportunity you had lost shall be fully restored. (Amen!) Thank You Father!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, who had been saying since this evening, Will God heal me? Will God heal me? He asked me to tell you, I will not only heal you but I will see to it that you don't lose your healing. (Amen!) Alleluia!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said your door to explosive progress had been opened. (Amen!)
If you can believe all things are possible. All you need to do is remember the following:
Number 1. Every testimony begins with a problem. The bigger the problem, the bigger the testimony. So if you are the one with the biggest problem here tonight then congratulations because the bigger the problem, the bigger the testimony. Who is the one who is going to share the biggest testimony of all? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)
What makes the testimony of Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego so powerful? It's because not that they were thrown out the fiery furnace but the fiery furnace was heated seven times more than usual. Are you in a furnace now? You will come out unhurt in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said your eyes are almost completely gone. He said He had replaced the two of them.(Amen!)
Thank You Lord! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said, every tree of sorrow in your family shall be uprooted. (Amen!)
Now, note that every testimony begins with a problem.
Number 2. When your problem seems overwhelming. When you look to the right and there is no help. You look to the left. There is no help. You look forward. There is no help. You look behind there is no help. There is always somewhere above to which you can look and help will come. Davis said in Psalm 121:1-2. He said, I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord who made heaven and earth.
Some of you will remember the testimony of a sister, wonderful sister, had a son who was epileptic and you know the superstition about epilepsy. They say if someone is epileptic and has a seizure, if he gets up in your presence they say you too you have got it. Of course that's silly superstition. In any case this woman had a son who was epileptic. When she rents a house because she is so good, everybody there will love her until the day the boy has a seizure. Then they will say, sorry ma you have to leave for another house. So she kept going from one corner of the town to another than one day she as going to the market with the son and when they got tot the very center of the town, right where everybody will see them the boy had a seizure and you know, everybody fled. And the woman grabbed the boy, stood him on his feet, held on to him and lifted up her eyes to God and said, O God I'm alone today but I know You are there! Help me! And that was the end of the sickness. Will somebody lift up his eyes today and say O God! I know you are there! Help me! And your prayers shall be answered in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said this message is for somebody in particular; He said, I should just tell you, I am with you, fear them not! I am with you. Fear them not!
If you are the one I think you should shout Alleluia! to that.
Every testimony starts with a problem. When your problem seems overwhelming look up to God, look up to Him
Number 3 – whatever you have lost is still within the reach of the Almighty. It doesn't matter what you have lost. Its still within His reach because Psalm 24:1says:The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof. Anything you have lost in this world is somewhere and whatever that somewhere may be it’s still within the reach of the Almighty. Even if what you have lost is already under the ground, it is written that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of things in heaven, of things on earth and of things under the earth. That is why I know, wherever your blessing had been taken to, the angels of the Lord will bring it speedily today. (Amen!)
Thank You Daddy! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, and whoever that fellow is he’s going to join me, He said there is someone here tonight, He said I should tell you to get ready for an invasion of miracles! (Amen!)
I’ve never heard that one before! An invasion of miracles! Thank You Father! Thank You Lord! Let’s go ahead and Praise Him! Let’s put our hands together …. An invasion of miracles. Alleluia! Thank You Father!
He also said that there is someone here tonight, He said, I will terminate your years of isolation. (Amen!)
Every testimony begins with a problem. When problems seem overwhelming, look up to Him. Whatever you have lost is still within His reach and number four, He has the keys to any door that anybody may say they have locked against your recovery.
In Revelations 3:7-8 He says I am the one with the keys of David. When I open, no man, no witch, no herbalist, no juju-man, no governor, no president, no prophet, no evangelist, no General Overseer can lock. God says when I open a door nobody can shut it and He said, I’ve kept before you an open door.. Whether the enemy likes it or not, this year your progress shall be explosive. (Amen!)
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I should tell you that somebody is leaving heaven now to come and attend to your case. (Amen!)
Number 5. Not only can God help you recover all, He can get you some extras too. In 1 Samuel 30:20 David after he recovered all got something extra that he said this shall be called David’s spoil. The Bible says in Ephesians 3:20 It said, our God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all we can ask or think. I decree to you tonight that God will embarrass you with blessings. He kind of blessing that you will say to God, God where do You want me to put this and He will say, I’ve not even started! He’s coming the way of somebody here tonight. (Amen!)
I’ve not been mentioning the cases of them that had been healed but the healing continues. For example there was someone who had been urinating blood. You can sneak out now and check. The problem is over. There’s somebody who all over your body, biting as of fire has just disappeared. There’s someone here half of your head is as if it is completely dead. God has restored completely. (Amen!) There’s someone here the doctors said your baby is no longer growing. Go back and check your baby has returned to the normal… So many of them!
So what must I do in order to recover all? In the story we read about David and Ziklag. Many of my children had already preached from there. They gave us some very beautiful teaching, particularly yesterday. But they all missed the first thing you should do if you want to recover all! The first thing you must do is that you must stop weeping. Stop weeping. It said David wept. All his great men they wept until there was no strength left in them. Weeping does not solve any problem. The elders have a saying. Weeping is not the solution to poverty. Weeping won’t solve the problem. Try the fellow next to you: Don’t weep again. Say it loud and clear: Don’t weep again! Tell the same fellow I will not weep again…..
Sorrow can only dim your vision. Job 17:7 He said, my eye is dim because of sorrow. And you need your vision; you need clear vision in order to be able to see the opportunities that surround you. Stop weeping! Your God is a God of joy! If the enemy takes everything away from you but he can’t take your joy, the joy of the Lord will still be your strength. Is anybody here who will now on be rejoicing whatever is happening? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!). Stop weeping! Don’t give room to sorrow! Don’t let the enemy break your spirit. Let me assure you tomorrow will be all right. (Amen!) If you believe that your tomorrow will be all right let me hear you say Amen! (Amen!)
The Lord says there is someone here; He said all forces resisting your destiny shall be crushed. Oh Thank You Father!
He said there is someone here tonight, He said, I will retire your oppressors so stop weeping!
Let the joy of the Lord remain in you. If they can’t take the joy of the Lord from you then they cannot defeat you. If they take the joy of the Lord from you then your strength is gone.
It is only after you stop weeping that you now go to step 2. That is, encourage yourself in the Lord. Encourage yourself in who? … In the Lord. Psalm 46:1 It said: God is our ever-present help. When you don’t expect His help, His help is near! The widow of Zarapeth was getting ready for her last meal and yet help was already on the way. I pray, I decree to somebody here today, long before the end of this month, God will send help to you.
Years ago something happened. There was a misunderstanding among the ministers. I was a very young pastor then. I’m talking about almost thirty years ago And what happened? I was so sad that as I was driving from Ebute-Metta to the University of Lagos where I was lecturing then, I got too St. Agnes junction and the traffic man stopped my car.. I was so low … and I was saying, if this is what they call the Gospel, if I can’t go forward I will go to where I’m coming from. That was how low I was because some people I highly respected disappointed me so badly.
Suddenly I heard God speak… He will speak to somebody here tonight! (Amen!) … He said Son, why are you so sad? And I knew His voice. I still know His voice. You know all things, You know what had happened. He said, Have I disappointed you yet. This fellow disappointed you, that fellow disappointed you, this fellow disappointed you, … Have I disappointed you yet? I said, No Lord and immediately I was lifted from the valley to the mountaintop and I went singing, I have a God who never fails. I have a God who never fails; I have a God who never fails, who never fails, who never fails, who never fails forevermore… Do you have the same God? Do you have a God who will never fail? If you are sure of that let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)
Daddy says that I should tell somebody here tonight that I will calm the seas and still the storm.
He said there is someone here tonight, you are the least expected to succeed but you will be the most successful in your family. (Amen!)
So stop weeping, encourage yourself in the God who can never fail.
Number three, seek His face in prayer. He said in Proverbs 8:17 They that seek me shall find me. Psalm 34:10 It said they that seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing. Hebrews 11:6 God is a rewarder of they that diligently seek Him. He will reward you in Jesus’ Name!. Stop weeping, encourage yourself in the God that can never fail, Seek His face in prayer..
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I should tell you, trust Me and I will put you in charge.
And then number four. Receive instructions from Him. The problem with many of Him is that we receive instructions from the daily newspapers, receive instructions from television news .. mmh mmm receive instructions form the Lord. In Psalm 107:20, He said, He sent His word and He healed and delivered them from their destructions. Just one Word from the Lord, It will settle your problem.
That’s why I pity those of you who come to the Holy Ghost Service only three times in the year. You can’t afford that. You need to hear a Word from Him. It is impossible for you to be in the Holy Ghost Service from evening till the morning without hearing a word from Him! Impossible. You will hear it from the choir. You will hear it from the one praying. You hear from the first preacher or the second preacher. You hear from Word of knowledge, word of prophecy. You need to receive instructions from the Lord. The Bible says the entrance of His Word giveth light. The Bible says, Your word is al amp unto my feet. When Your Word comes to me then I know what to do!
We were building the first big auditorium, as we call it then, of the wooden type. I’m not talking of the one by the expressway; I’m talking of the wooden section here now. Which at that time was oh-oh the biggest thing in the whole of Africa. And about few weeks to the Convention – we’ve paid for wood, to the Board, somewhere in Edo State and suddenly the Board closed down all their sawmills and they’ve already got our money. Few weeks to the Convention. What am I going to do Lord?
And I was walking… the whole place here was bush then… Father, help me what shall I do? I don’t have more money to go and buy wood from elsewhere. Suddenly I heard His voice. You will hear His voice tonight. (Amen!) He said, Son, What do you know about the Kingdom of God. I was about to say, Daddy, I’m talking about auditorium, You are talking about Kingdom of God! Then I remembered. He’s my Lord and you don’t talk back to Your Lord. The Kingdom of God you must be born again to see the Kingdom of God He said Yes, the Kingdom of God is not meat and drink but peace, joy in the Holy Ghost.. . He said, Yes … and I kept on telling Him, and He kept on saying Yes until I couldn’t think of anything again. Oh All right. Since the days of John the Baptist, the Kingdom of God suffereth violence and the violent have taken it by force! He said, Eh-eh, that’s where we are going. You want your wood! I said, Yes. Then give me a violent offering. A violent offering is an offering you want to take and your hand refuses to move so you have to force your hand to take it. That was Saturday night. Sunday morning I went to my church. Shared with my children and both my children and myself gave God a violent offering. Monday morning, the Governor dissolved all the Boards, installed a new one. The new one opened all the sawmills. Tuesday somebody came and said, Daddy I have no money but I have this trailer, you can use it for as long as you want. Wednesday somebody came. I have no money but I have these bags of nails. Within 2 weeks the auditorium was ready because I heard an instruction from Him. Do this and leave the rest to me. What you will do that will cause the Almighty God to stand up and fight for you He will tell you tonight. (Amen!) I say you better say Amen to that (Amen!)
Number 5. After David sought instruction from the Lord God made a pronouncement. You will pursue, you will overtake, without fail you will recover all. What is the lesson on that? If you don’t learn any other thing tonight, learn this - don’t joke with divine pronouncements. I can see a lot of pronouncements going on tonight and I see a lot of people jumping up and grabbing them. And I see some of us, the way we say Amen tells the Almighty God that no-no-no we don’t care.Let me tell you something. Those who are grabbing these things and you think they are jokers. You wait, within one year you will pursue them you won’t catch up with them. (Amen!) Take my word for it and I will give you 2 examples.
There was a soldier, in the Nigerian Army. He couldn’t share his testimony because of his sensitive position. For one reason or the other, those who are his boss just hated him and they put down his name for retirement. Young man! And he heard that his retirement is already sealed. He said, haaa no problem we thank God that tomorrow is Holy Ghost Service, He said I will go and hear what the Almighty God has to say. And he came. We were still up there then. Almost as he was settling down the Word of God came, that those who want to retire you, long after they are gone you will still be moving forward. He looked at the wife, the wife looked at him and the 2 of them grabbed themselves! Ah-ahh!! And you know what followed? Somehow they forgot to retire him. Number 2 all his bosses were retired. One promotion after another; one promotion after the other until he became the boss. Those who say you will not reach your goal, long after they are gone you will still be reigning. (Amen!)
Let me tell you another story. It tells you the power of pronouncement. A young girl came to the Holy Ghost Service wanting to go to the American Embassy for visa and she came and God spoke and said Oh there is someone here who is attending a visa interview, congratulations because you’ve already got it. So she danced and went for the interview and the woman there said, No visa! She said get away from here! No visa. The girl said, But my father said I have gotten the visa. The woman there said, What is my concern about your father? Who is your father? She said, My father is Adeboye. And the woman said, Who is Adeboye? And the woman said, In any case, your name is so-and-so. How can your name be so-and-so and you say Adeboye is your father? Oh, she said, Adeboye is the father of my father. And suddenly the woman began to laugh and said, You are a funny little girl, bring your passport and granted the passport – funny little girl heard the pronouncement. She’s not clever enough like you to rationalize how it will happen. She just heard the pronouncement and she came home dancing with her visa. May I remind you that God has spoken tonight that the door to your explosive progress is already open. Don’t joke with divine pronouncements.
The Bible says in Psalm 3:8-9
The Lord says there is a pregnant woman here, who has been dreaming of coffins. The Lord asked me to tell you those who built the coffins will sleep in them. (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said there’s somebody here tonight, your years of famine are over. (Amen!)
Number 6 Do whatever God says. He told David Pursue and he pursued. Do whatever God says. James 1:22 Be a doer of the word not a hearer only. Exodus 15:26 it said if you will hearken diligently to the voice of your God, to observe and to do all that I command you this day, I will bring no disease upon you. Hear what He has to say. Do it and you will remain forever healthy. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 9:6 He who sows sparingly shall reap sparingly. He that sows bountifully shall reap bountifully. Forever O Lord they word is settled,. Do what He says. Malachi 3:10-11 Pay all your tithes and God will give you a breakthrough and rebuke devourers for your sake. Proverbs 3:9-10 Honour the Lord with your first fruit and you will have not enough room to contain the blessings. Do what He says. John 15:16 He said be a soul winner then all your prayers will be answered! Do what He says.
Number 7 Fight for what is yours. David did not just pursue. He didn’t just overtake. When he got to the enemy he didn’t joke. The problem with many of you Christians is that you are too timid. You must learn to fight for what is yours. The enemy is not going to gently release to you what he has stolen. Learn to fight. There are occasions when you are to be a gentleman but there are moments when you have to tell them that you are the son of the Lion of Judah. Anybody who is in the army of the Lord is a soldier. Jesus Christ was not a civilian He’s the Commander-in-Chief of the Hosts of Heaven! How many soldiers of the cross are here tonight? Let me hear you shout Alleluia! like a soldier. Alleluia!
Some years ago we were returning from Ilesha and we got to a junction called Oshu junction. We were far from the main road because we saw vehicles coming and there was this young boy and he was coming like a bullet and for one reason or the other he swerved off the road. And hit us and dragged us almost into the pits. We just shouted Jesus and the car stopped. So the police came and they measured the line and they said, Ahh! definitely this boy is guilty and so on. And the boy moved close to the police and said. I am the driver of Chief so-so-so and the policeman said, Ahh! that’s money! He said, You people why should you stand here self? Why should you be here when this boy is coming and immediately he began to change his drawing! The lion in me rose up. I said, Officer, officer, do you see the name on the bus. He said, Yes Redeemed Christian Church of God! Is that the reason why you should stand here? I said, Officer listen to me. In every man’s life there is always a last assignment… He said, No, no, It is this boy who is guilty, No doubt about that! … The Word of God says, say to this mountain, mountain be though removed and be thou cast into the sea and it shall obey you. Every mountain you will command tonight. Every mountain blocking your way to total recovery shall be moved in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!)
Use the name of Jesus. At the name of Jesus every knee must bow. Use the Word of God it is written.. Use the blood of Jesus. The Bible says they overcame him by the power of the blood of Jesus.
Finally after you have recovered all remember to share. Bamidele came here and told you that when you recover all you will have more than sufficient. Share. It is because God blessed the Redeemed Christian Church of God. That is why today we are in more than 90 nations of the world. Because we want to share. God is going to bless somebody here. (Amen!) By the time you have recovered all that the devil has stolen from you, you’ll be able to build a church for God. (Amen!)You will be able to send missionaries out. (Amen!) In fact one of you will be able to buy me a jet. (Amen!) Who received that one? Let me hear you shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!)
But when we talk about sharing, we are not just talking about sharing money and sharing clothes, we are talking about sharing your testimonies. Let us hear what God has done for you. Let’s hear your testimony! Let’s hear your testimony! Not only that when we talk about sharing – tell others about Jesus Christ. Remember somebody told you about Him. Somebody told you about Holy Ghost Service for example. That’s why you came. Now some of you whatever is happening you can’t miss it! Tell others! Share! And your recovery will be total. (Amen!)
Thank You Father! Alleluia! The Lord said there is someone here; He said the heat that is located in the center of your head has been removed. (Amen!)
It’s another new one tonight.
The Lord said there is someone here; He said your blessings shall no longer be part-time. (Amen!)
Alleluia! Let me hear somebody shout Alleluia! Alleluia!
Even a dead man knows that the power of God is here tonight and I’m about to get out of the way so that the Holy Spirit can do what He wants to do but the Almighty God said to me there were some people who came in after the altar call was made and they need to surrender their lives to Jesus Christ tonight. If you are here and you came after the altar call was made and you have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus – there can be no recovery without repentance. The devil will not let you go until you have surrendered to Jesus so if you have never given your life to Jesus or you were a Christian before and you backslid and you want to come back to Jesus you have very little time and I want to give you the opportunity.
I will count from 1-10. If you are out there and you have not given your life to Jesus. Before I say 10 come and stand before me here. 1…. 2…. 3….. 4…… Oh you may be few but God has shown special interest in you that is why He has given this special opportunity. 4…. This is the hour of decision. This is your day of salvation. 5…. Oh you need Jesus Christ so badly He is the only one who can save your soul. It is after He has saved your soul that all things become new. 6…. 7….. The gates of mercy may soon close bit is still open now. 8…..
Ohhh Thank You Father! Come, I know you are coming from a long way some of you so I will wait a little… O Glory be to God! Keep coming. I’ll wait a little. Blessed be the name of the Lord. 9. .. Now those of you already in front begin to talk to Jesus Christ. Say, Father. I’ve come to surrender my life to You tonight. Save my Soul. Just forgive me O Lord and I will serve You. I will serve You. I will serve You O Lord! Forgive all my sins and I will serve You for the rest of my life. I know some of you are still coming from a long distance. Keep coming! Don’t wait! Keep coming!
The rest of us shall we please stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them that the one who saved our souls will save their own souls also. Pray for them brethren! Pray for them! Intercede on their behalf that every one of them will be given genuine salvation today. Pray for them. Those of you still coming, hurry up now! We want to pray for you now – for the salvation of your soul. O Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Let’s pray for them brethren – for another 30 seconds. For 30 seconds more and then I will pray.
Thank You Father! Blessed Saviour we give You glory. Even as You saved my soul, save their souls also, everyone of them, genuine salvation, high quality salvation, give unto them O Lord. Save their souls. Blessed be Your Name O Lord! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
Father, I thank You for Your Word thank You for the power in Your Word. Accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name Father You promised that whosoever will come unto You You will in no wise cast out. These Your children have come, receive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). Forgive them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). Cleanse them in Your blood in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). Write their names in the Book of Life in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) And from today Lord whenever they cry unto You answer them in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!) Everything that Satan has taken from them restore fully in Jesus’ Name! (Amen!). Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen!
Now I can see one or two still coming. Just make sure you get here. I want to rejoice with those of you who have given your life to Jesus today. Do you know that right now, because of you Jesus is dancing in heaven. So let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!). I want to promise you, God helping me, from today, I will be praying for you and I can assure you God answers my prayers so that is why I need your names and your address and the principal prayer requests. Now make sure you put the correct address because when I ask God to send your miracle it will be sent to the address that you put down. So if you will follow this my brother to my right he will take you to where some Pastors are already waiting for you. They will collect this information from you quickly and then they will bring you back. They will hurry so that you won’t miss anything. So let’s follow this brother. Go rejoicing… rejoice because this is your new day.
Remember what I said when I was preaching? ….. When there is nowhere else to turn, turn to God. We want to turn to God tonight. We want to fight for our possessions For just about 5- 6 minutes we want to pray in such a way that the devil himself will know that auh-uh I better leave these people alone. Are you ready to pray? That yes is not enough to? Are you ready to pray? Let’s stand on our feet.
First and foremost I want you to shout one ‘Alleluia’ that will drive all demons away! Alleluia!!! The prayers you are about to pray – forget everybody on your right and on your left. Let the gentlemen, let the ladies be ladies but you be a warrior. Lift your voice to the Almighty and say, Father .. recover my health, recover my strength, my joy, my freedom, lost opportunities, I recover tonight everything that the devil has stolen, I recover them all tonight, I recover them without fail! .……. Thank You Jesus! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! …..Blessed be Your Holy Name! Blessed be Your Holy Name! I recover all, I recover all, Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! I recover all tonight in the mighty name of Jesus! Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
Maybe there is something special you want God to do for You tonight. Go to God with all boldness. He has already promised you that the doors are open Talk to Him now. Tell Him Daddy, I come boldly, I come in faith, I want this, I want this, I want that… Go ahead talk to the Almighty God….. Let’s begin to bring our prayers to a close. Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
Now I want you to remain in an attitude of prayer as I invite all the men of God from other ministries to please come up here. I want them to come and stretch their hands towards you and pray for you. Remain in an attitude of prayer. When they combine their anointing to pray for you you know something great will happen so remain in an attitude of prayer. O Thank You Father! This is a night you will never forget. (Amen!) Thank You Jesus! Alleluia! Stretch your hands towards them as they stretch their hands towards you and continue to talk to God about what you want God to do for you and they will be praying here that whatever you are asking God for God will give it to you. So keep on asking God and they will be agreeing with you. They are praying for you now so keep on, link up with them …… In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
I’m going to ask one of them to pray for you while the rest of them will be in absolute support. Thank You Jesus!
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ (Amen!), in the mighty name of Jesus Christ (Amen!), in the precious blood of Jesus Christ (Amen!) we give You all the glory, we give You all the honour. Your Word stands forever, You are the God that answereth by fire. You have brought us here for signs and wonders. Let this day be a day of memorial in the name of Jesus! (Amen!)! The Bible says that eyes have not seen and ears have not heard and minds of men cannot comprehend what You have done tonight. Father let there be full restoration in the name of Jesus! (Amen!) Heavenly Father we say thank You. There is no situation before You that is hopeless. Because You are the God that makes all hopeless to be hopeful. (Amen!) As we leave here tonight let us be reference points of goodness in the name of Jesus! (Amen!)! Daddy we say thank You! Jesus we say thank You! Holy Spirit we appreciate Your presence. In the name of the Father, In the Name of the Son, in the name of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus Christ’s mighty name we pray. (Amen!) All the saints say Amen! (Amen!)
Before the ministers go, the Bible says he that watereth shall be watered. Stretch your hands towards them and pray for them that God will bless them; that God will prosper their ministries; that God will renew their anointing; that this day will also mark a turning point in their ministries; that they too will never forget this day for the rest of their lives. ……. In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) The Lord will bless you. (Amen!) He will expand your coast. (Amen!) He will renew your anointing. (Amen!) Every opportunity you have lost you will recover. By the time you reach home your ministries will blossom afresh. (Amen!) So shall it be In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! Let somebody shout ‘Alleluia!’ (Alleluia!) God bless you! You are most welcome! Thank you.
Is anybody really blessed? And yet God is just about to begin. There were some people who were carried in. Ushers could you kindly help me spread some mats there……. Maybe I better wait till they have brought them before I tell you what God wants to do. So if there is any one who was carried in, let them bring such people to the mats. …. Thank You Father! …
Listen to me carefully. There is a difference between the miraculous and the spectacular. There’s a difference between the two. Many people in looking for the spectacular they miss the miraculous. What God wants to do tonight is the miraculous. He wants to deposit tin these people that which is going to bring about their total healing. You may not see anything but I can guarantee you one thing, every one that God is going to minister to here tonight very soon is going to stand before you and testify (Amen!). Now those who brought them, you move back. The reason why I want all of them to be in before I tell you what God wants to do is so that some people will not begin to rush and say, Ahhh! I want to join.
Thank You Father! Some days ago I wanted to change my underwear and the Lord says “Don’t.” I don’t know why and I’ve known Him sufficiently now not to question Him, since I wasn’t going anywhere anyway, I was in my prayer room so it doesn’t matter. So I kept wearing the same singlet day after day, day after night and then this afternoon He spoke. He said because tonight is the night of total recovery your singlet is going to be laid on those who are carried in. He said, don’t bother yourself about what you see and or what you don’t see, every one of them that is touched by this singlet you have been wearing day or night sooner or later will come and testify. (Amen!) So the singlet is here and my darling wife is going to do the job of laying it on these people. What I want you to do brethren, as she is laying the cloth on these people, is that I want you to dance and rejoice because the anointing is going to flow to you even as she is doing the work. So we want some music we can dance to brethren………
Lord of miracles, he has done it before, he will do it again ……Darling you are just to touch them with the cloth. Just touch them and move on. That woman said, If I can touch but the hem of his garment.. Just touch them, don’t wait, don’t pray – just touch them - Go ahead…………
These mats were full and they are not so full anymore because the Almighty God has started His work. The rest of you, I believe who I serve. I believe the person I serve. Very soon you will be standing here to share your testimony. (Amen!) Now you can go back to your seats.
Now brethren we have come to the most crucial thing that God asked e to do here tonight. And I want you to be very, very attentive. The Bible says Woe unto him who says God said when God has not spoken so you need to pay attention to what I’m about to say. Your life is about to change forever and ever. God moves in mysterious ways his wonders to perform. When the children of Israel were gong to the Promised Land and they got to a place called Mara, the water there was bitter. God spoke to Moses, showed Him a tree, said cut a branch of the tree and throw it into the water and immediately the water became sweet. Is it the tree that made the water sweet? No. It was just the act of obedience on the part of Moses. Elisha was about to die and the king came unto him and said, my father, my father what am I going to do now? The men of God said take your bow and arrow. He took it. Open the windows, laid his hand on his own and asked him to shoot. When he shot he said that’s the arrow of deliverance. Then he asked him to take the arrow and begin to strike the ground. He struck the ground 3 times and stopped. The men of God said who asked you to stop after 3 times. He said because you struck 3 times you will win 3 victories. Namaan came to Elisha, loaded with leprosy. The man of God said Go and bathe in Jordan 7 times. There was no healing power in Jordan but there is power in obedience. The last example I will give you which has to do with you tonight … The children of Israel got to the Red Sea and Moses cried to God – how are we going to cross? How will the door be opened? God said to Moses, You lift up your rod against the Red Sea. Moses did and God did the remainder. God is about to open your Red Sea. (Amen!)
Some years ago I made 2 walking sticks. Just pure aluminum, very light both of them were the same size. Painted them white just for the fun of it so that when I go on my walk at night I will take one of them. But funny enough I just fell in love with this one. It is the same length as the other one, made the same day painted white but I fell in love with this one. And one day I was going for a walk at night and I got to a place, which is my normal route. I passed there last night and I saw something that looked like a log of wood across the way. I said there was no log of wood here yesterday. So I moved back a little bit, brought out my torchlight and shone it on the log of wood and lo and behold, it’s a boa constrictor! So I took 2 steps further back. I was going to allow it to pass so I can continue my prayers but suddenly it decided to attack. And this is the only weapon I had. And with this weapon I killed it! Alleluia!!! I went to the house of the Pastor nearest to that place. Borrowed a cutlass, came back and cut off hi head and I used the boot of a Mercedes Benz car to carry the snake to my house. It nearly filled the boot!
The following day, I said, wait a minute you mean I killed that snake with this? No I’m not the one who killed the snake. It has to be God. Since then I’ve killed several snakes with the same cane. Some days ago, while I was praying. God told me, He said what did the rod of Moses do in Egypt. I said, It swallowed the snakes of Egypt and then opened the Red Sea. Daddy told me that tonight I will take t his rod that had killed so many snakes and I’m going to left it up at a particular time and all you who believe, even as I left up the rod, the way God asked me to do, your Red Sea shall open. (Amen!)
Then He said after I’ve done that tonight tomorrow night I will use the rod again to close the Red Seas on your enemies after which this my beautiful walking stick will have to be destroyed because it would have finished the assignment God has for it.
Brethren, this is a very solemn moment, I’m going to ask you to please stand. Those of you who are outside the auditorium, focus your attention on your screen now. Soon as you see this rod moving in your direction just begin to clap. By the time we finish the enemies you see today you will never see them again. (Amen!)….. Open your mouth and really praise Him. Let Him Know that you believe that your ways are open now. Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Thank You Jesus! Glory be to God! Thank You forevermore. Thank You Lord! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Now let me hear a really big Alleluia! (Alleluia!) oh Thank You Father! Thank You Jesus! I think you want to shake hands with 2 or 3 people and say Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations. Alleluia! Father. Thank You Father! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Glory be to God! Amen and Amen You can be seated. Thank you.
I rejoice with you! I rejoice with you! I rejoice with you! I rejoice with you! I would therefore encourage you to be present tomorrow evening. It is essential that after you have escaped that the door be shut against those who may want to pursue you after you have escaped. The way has been opened now. Anyone who wants to pursue you we need to drown them. That is the main purpose pf tomorrows anointing service.
Now we have had a wonderful night. Left to me I would just say let’s go now but God told me of some critical cases that I must attend to before I go. Listen to me very carefully. This service is not over yet.
Thank You Father! The Lord says there is a woman here tonight you are married to your number four husband and you know how the former three died. You were involved in their killing. This happened before you were born again. …… Now you are married to the fourth. You are in love with him. You have even left the society you were in when the first three died. But the society said if you want to go you can go but we will kill your number four husband. You are here tonight and God wants to intervene. He wants to rescue your husband so He said I should tell you to come forward so I can pray for you. I know this is a difficult thing. It’s either you come or your husband dies. I have nothing to do with that. If your husband is sitting by your side ask him. Should I go forward or should I stay? If he says don’t go then you are free. So if you want to come you come. If you don’t want to come - no problem.
The Lord also said there is a woman here you took away the potency of your husband because he was wayward. Now you are born again, you want to reverse the situation but you could not do it. God wants to intervene, He says if you come tonight, if you come forward for prayers He said He will reverse the irreversible …….
Praise the Living Jesus!!
PRAISE THE LORD!
