Tonight somebody is going to win without fighting. (Amen!) When Paul and Silas were in prison; even if they wanted to fight there was no way they could fight.

(Alleluia!)
Luke 5. I'm reading from verse 1 to 7. I know the preacher who preached probably used the same chapter but I didnâ€™t know what he was going to talk about. He didn't know what I was going to talk about but God wants to give somebody double dose of blessings tonight. I'm confident that there'll be several twins born as a result of the impartation. (Amen!) Luke 5:1-7
And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,  And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.  And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.  Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.  And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
All of you who have been working all night and catching nothing this month you will catch double. (Amen!)
 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.  And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
I prophesy to those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, next year Convention when it is time to bring forward your children, your relatives will have to help you with at least one of them. (Amen!) If you believe that let me hear your 'Amen' loud and clear!
What is a womb? A womb is where a seed develops. It's a place where the seed begins the journey to becoming a fruit. When the husband meets the wife, he drops a seed into the womb and the seed develops in the womb and when it is finally ripe it comes forth as a fruit. Psalm 127:3 said children are the fruit of the womb. So the womb is a place where the seed develops and becomes a fruit.
So the womb of the father is the ground. He puts a seed into the ground. The seed develops in the ground and produces something that will ultimately produce a fruit for the farmer. In John 12:24 the Bible said except a seed of wheat falls to the ground and dies it remains alone. So until you put the seed into the ground it will remain alone just a seed! But when it gets into the ground into its own womb then it is going to multiply. That is why the fruitfulness of the farmer is determined by how good the soil is. That is why some soil will produce 30 fold, some 60 fold, some 100 fold. Everyone here tonight, that have not been fruitful, that had not been fertile, I speak loud into you in Jesus' Name!.
So the womb of the fisherman is the river. The womb of the student is the brain. So there are all kinds of wombs so when we talk about barrenness we are not talking about the woman who is trusting God for children alone. A student who is always failing his examinations is said to be mentally barren. That means the brain that is the womb of the student is not producing results. And I prophesy to every student who are present today, your brain will become fertile. (Amen!)
Now from the Word of Godâ€¦
Ohh Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said, everything contrary to your glorification shall be removed tonight. (Amen!)
In Genesis 29:31 the Bible tells us that a womb can be opened or closed. He said Leah's womb was open and Rachel's womb was shut. Now according to Genesis 30:1 and 2, when God shuts a womb, no husband can open it, no doctor can open it. Nobody! No one. If God is the One who opens it nobody can shut it. If He is the One who shut the womb then He is the one who can open it again because Rachel said to her husband, give me babies or I die. The husband said, What are you talking about? Am I God? But in Genesis 30:22 and 23 the Bible says, God remembered Rachel and opened her womb. Every womb that had been shut by God shall be opened tonight in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) God will remember you tonight in Jesus' Name! (Amen!)
Now according to Isaiah 43:13 if any other person shuts your womb apart from God, then God can open it so if your womb had been shut by witches and wizards, father-in-law, mother-in-law, tonight they have failed. (Amen!) I say they have failed. (Amen!) Because the Bible says in Isaiah 43:13 He said nobody can deliver out of my hands but when I decide to work no one can hinder me. God has made up His mind tonight, that this month there'll be shouts of joy in every place. (Amen!)
Why is it that God can open the womb that somebody else shut? Because Revelations 3:7 says He has the key of David. He says when I open no man can shut; when I shut no man can open so with the key of David every womb that had been shut, whether that of a woman, that of a business man, that of a farmer, that of a student. They shall be open in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Let me hear your Amen loud and clear.. (Amen!)
I'm sure you remember this story of a woman who saw the mother-in-law coming from the market and went joyfully to meet her and the mother-in-law gave her a bread and said eat this and use it to block your womb! The woman said what kind of joke is this. Unfortunately she went ahead with the bread and from that day she ceased to menstruate without getting pregnant. But her day came. The day of somebody will come tonight (Amen!) We went there to hold a program. She was getting ready, praying fasting and she fell asleep. One afternoon and had a dream and saw some people in white clothes coming and they opened up her belly and began to draw a rope, long rope! They kept on drawing the rope. Finally, at the end of the rope there was a loaf of bread, black like anything and they put it in the container and sewed her back and left. And the bed was wet with blood â€“ for the first time she was menstruating again. Today, she is the mother of many children! Everything the enemy has used to block your womb, in the name of the Great Physician, they shall be removed tonight (Amen!)
There are various wombs. Business has its own womb. When God shuts the womb of business, no matter how hard the business man tries, that business is closed. Peter fished all night and caught nothing. In Haggai 1:5-6 God says when He is angry with businessmen, even when they earn the money it will be into bag with holes. In other words they'll be working like an elephant, they'll be eating like a rat. I'm telling you many stories tonight because tonight is the night of somebody. I am confident; I have no doubt about it at all that before December every businessman here will be shouting for joy. (Amen!)
Thank You Father! Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said, shame shall no longer be your portion. (Amen!)
There was once a friend of mine, working very hard, earning very good salary. The wife working very hard, earning very good salary but at the end of the month they are borrowing! And they keep asking, what are we doing with the money? And there is no thief in the house! What are we doing with the money! Suddenly the house help began to scream. What's the problem? He said, the fire is too much! Every agent of the devil in your family, beginning from today, the fire of the Holy Ghost will not allow them to rest. (Amen!) Then he began to confess â€“ because the houseboy came from the family of the husband: they told me at home, they said I should bring your cap. I took the cap to them. I don't know what they did to the cap but they say every money that comes into your house will report in the cap. Every hole in y our bag, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ shall be sealed tonight (Amen!)
Deuteronomy 28:12 God said when I open the womb of your business you will be lending to nations. That's what He said. He said , I will open unto you my good treasure. I will open the womb of your business. You will lend to nations, you will never borrow! There is somebody here tonight, very soon, when you tell the bank manager that you want to wiothdraw your money he will begin to shake. (Amen!) You better say 'Amen' loud and clear! (Amen!)
What about progress? It has wombs. When God shuts the womb of progress then no matter how hard you try, instead of moving forward you'll be moving backwards. In the Book of Jonah:1-4 God sent Jonah to a particular place. Here is where I want you to go Jonah and Jonah said no and was going in the opposite direction and they got into the ship and they began to move. But God shut the womb of progress and instead of the ship going forward it was going backwards. When God shuts the womb of progress you will fins that you are making all the effort to go forward but instead you are going backwards. But when He opens the womb of progress, suddenly you find that you'll take one little step and you'll finds yourself in a place you didn't even expect!
In John 6:15-21. John 6:15-21 the Bible tells us a story. The disciples were in a boat rowing very hard and there was a storm and instead of making progress they were having problems. All of a sudden they saw Jesus walking towards them on the boat and they were afraid. And He said, Don't be afraid and they took Him into the boat. The Bible said, as soon as He stepped into the boat, immediately, the boat arrived at the destination. Immediately. It just went zoom. There is somebody here tonight., Where you think you cannot reach in ten years, in the name that is above every other name, you will reach there before the end of the year. (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here,, He said there is a curse upon your family that causes everybody there to make abortive efforts. He asked me to tell you. That curse is broken.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I should tell you He has already broken the hands of your enemies and the hands shall never be repaired! (Amen!)
Oh Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here,, He said I should just tell you, I will turn your water to wine. (Amen!)
You remember the story of a man who was not promoted for 12 years. If I mention the name of the university somebody here might know who Iâ€™m talking about. For 12 years He was working hard, no promotion. Finally he came to the Lord, surrendered his life. As soon as the Lord stepped into the boat of his life things began to change. There was a coup. A new government came. The new government sacked so many professors and there were new heads of department and the new head of department of his own department said, I want to see the file of everybody. They couldn't find the file of this man. Somebody had hidden his file for twelve years so that whenever it is time for promotion â€“ no file. The new head of department said, I must see his file! All those who are responsible for your staying in one position; those who have stolen your file, they will no longer rest. (Amen!) until they bring out your file. (Amen!) So finally they brought out the file of this man and the new head of department said, This man has not been promoted for twelve years! No recommendation for 12 years and immediately he gave him double promotion. Somebody will testify in October Holy Ghost Service. If you are the fellow let me hear you shout Alleluia!.
What about blessings? Blessings has its own womb. It can be shut. It can be open. In Genesis 48:17-19 Jacob blessed the 2 children of Joseph and he gave the bigger blessing to Ephraim the younger son. He placed the right hand on his head and the left hand on Manasseh. Within a short period of time according to Deuteronomy 3:17 Ephraim had become ten times greater! When God decides to open the womb of blessing. When the man touches one little thing it becomes gold. You sell water and become a millionaire and build a house. It means God had opened the womb of blessing. There is somebody here tonight the womb of blessing shall be opened unto him. (Amen!)
You know the story. Some of you knew the story of a young man. Everything went wrong. All of his machines refused to work. He owed so much when his friends saw him coming they run., They don't want him to pay what he is owing but they don't want him to borrow more. No food on the house; children hungry and the wife, well she couldn't take it any longer â€“ sitting down and the children saying, mama we are hungry! Mama we are hungry! And there's nothing to eat. Nobody to borrow fromâ€¦The wife lost her mind. She became mad. And since the man had no money to take her to hospital he went and dumped her with one herbalist. That was his situation when we met., We went to hold a program there and she way laid us. You can't go! You can't go! You have to solve this problem before you go! And when he told me the story I told him to set forth his hands, I laid my hands on his hands. I prayed a simple prayer. When you get home, lay the hand on your wife, lay the hand on your machine, whatever you touch now will begin to prosper. And he went in faith and went straight to the herbalists house and laid his hands on the wife and the wife jerked like somebody waking up from a dream and said, Ah, what am I doing here! The husband said, the thing is working! All of you here tonight, beginning from now! Whatever you touch will prosper. (Amen!) So he ran home and laid his hands on the machines! All the machines that had refused to work, every one of them jumped back to work. When I saw him next he was riding a brand new 505. The womb of blessing shall be opened to somebody here tonight .(Amen!)
But God can shut the womb of blessings. When He does things dry up. The same Ephraim who became 10 times bigger than his brother, when he became rich He forgot God. God kept sending to him: Ephraim, we are friends, I love you, I did this for you, I did that for you, don't do this â€¦ eehhh let me enjoy myself. Finally God said, in Hosea 4:17 God said, Ephraim has joined himself to idols, leave him alone and God said in Hosea 5A;9 He said Ephraim shall be desolate. When I prospered you, you forgot mer. I have the key, I can open, I can shut. I pray for you â€“ the blessing that is coming your way will not take you away from God. (Amen!).
I've told you the story before. I'm just reminding those of you who have heard it. We were small, all of us we couldn't even build one small church at Ebute-Metta and the man of God came from America and was ministering to us. All of a sudden he stopped and pointed at a brother and said Thus says the Lord, if you will worship me I will make you a millionaire. He said, Amen. I mean all of us were looking at the man of God to see if he will point at us too. But he just spoke to that one man and continued. We were a little bit jealous. In 6 months â€“ this was a man who himself, his wife, his five children were living in one little room and a parlour. Within 6 months he's bought a Mercedes-Benz car; 505 for hi wife. He's moved first of all to a flat, then he moved to a big house and then ewe didn't see him in church any more. Ahh brother, I was there when God said, If you will worship me I will make you a millionaire., He heard on the part I will make you a millionaire he didn't remember the other one. Why don't we see you in church? Oh it's business. Last Sunday I was in Geneva. The other Sunday I was in Edinburgh. The one before that I was in Philadelphia. Is that so? It is now the Sunday when you are supposed to be worshipping God that is now for business meeting? Ohh no I pray!, I pray! Then God decided to shut the door. I suddenly heard that this young man had a heart attack. I sent people to pray for him and told him when he's well he should come and see me. He got well and came. How can you have heart attack? You are a young man! They gave him a contract at the time they were building Abuja and there was an agreement that if he gets the work to a certain level, I think they were going to pay him 200 million naira. At that time naira was naira. That's true. Two weeks before it got to that level, they cancelled the contract. That's when he had the heart attack. He has the key of David. When He opens no man can shut. When He shuts no man can open. I said to him, my son, it's all right. You just remember what He said: If you will worship Him. Return to Him. Nobody else will take that contract. Return! Instead of returning he left the contract. The door that God will open unto you today, what you will do to cause Him to shut it you will never do it again. (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said you are making progress. Small progress, painful progress. He said but from tonight your progress will be rapid and painless. (Amen!)
What about poverty? Poverty has womb. When God shuts the womb of poverty you will just discover that you will never lack again. God has a way fo taking somebody beyond the boundary of poverty once and for all. In 2 Kings 4:1-7 there was a widow who had been in debt for as long as she can remember until one day the creditors said if you don'[t pay by tomorrow we will sell your children! She cried to God. God turned the tide and she never borrowed again. People find it difficult to believe that as near as 1985 when we moved to this camp, when my wife and I began to live on this camp, there was a toll gate in Lagos there. The toll fee was one naira to; on naira fro. There were days when my wife and I could not go to Lagos because we did not have 2 naira! No two naira to pay the toll fee! And I used to comfort my wife then: there must be accident that wants to happen on the way. That's why there is no money. The truth is poverty! Thank God, that is gone forever! (Amen!) One day you will stand before the congreagrion and say, I don't know poverty ever again. If you believe that let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)
In other words when God opens the womb of wealth, all of a sudden poverty becomes a stranger,. In Exodus 12:35-36 the children of Israel who had been in poverty for more than 400 years, in one single night, they became absolutely wealthy. It took God only one night. Tekll your neighbour. I think this is my night. I know this is my night.
There was a young man I knew him not long ago. About 9 yearsa gao was when I first met him. He was so poor that poor people will probably call him poor. But he loved the Lord. He was ready to do anything for the Lord. One day IO saw his zeal for God and I was prompted to prophesy to him. I said, God very soon hyou will rmember your years of poverty as a bad dream that is gone forever. Last year, I saw a young man standing beside a Mercedes S cl;ass. I looked at hima nd said are you driving for somebody now. He smiled and said look at the special plate number. That special number is my name! The car is my own! Very soon, somebody here who cannot even pay his rent, you will say, Daddy, look at this house it is my own! (Amen!) SO shall it be in Jesus' Name! (Amen!)
What about breakthroughs? Breakthroughs have wombâ€¦..
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, They said your file is closed. God say I will reopen it. Ami
Thank You Daddy! The Lord said there is a woman here, you always miscarry after 3 months. He asked me tot tell you â€“ no more! No more!
When God opens the womb of victories one breakthrough will begin to follow another. The story of Peter that we read in Luke 5:1-11 Peter had one breakthrough that he caught a lot of fish but other breakthroughs followed. He was promoted form fisherman to fisher of men. He moved from there , preached one sermon and won 3,000 souls. Preached another sermon, 5,000 souls. Preached another one multitudes came! There is somebody here tonight. Even asyou are celebrating one breakthrough two others will follow quickly. (Amen!)
I've told you the story. 1979 I think, we went to Tulsa for Kenneth Hagin camp meeting and then on one particular day they said they want to raise offering for their Bible College. And one man got up and called his wife. They talked and then he went to the altar and took the microphone and said, I want to tell everyone of you here present : whatever you all give, that is what my wife and I will give. Ahh! And there were 17,000 of us!!! And you know human beings. We said, you are in trouble. All of us together? So what we didnâ€™t want to give before we gave, to get him into trouble! Then they added everything together. 3.5 million dollars. We said , heh, heh? He took the microphone and said, Brethren, is that all you can do? God is talking to someone here. So I said, this man knows something that I don't know. I'm going to find out. As soon as we finished the service, I went to see him. Tell me your secret! Oh he said , it is very simple. Five years ago, I started a business with five hundred dollars and I reached an agreement with God. God, I will not insult you by giving you 10%. I will give You 90. I will keep 10% of the profit. And when God heard that, He said, is that so boy? Then I will show you. Now, five years later I am worth 50 million dollars so I know what I am doing. You give what you want. I give the same. God multiplies it by 100 and gives it back to me. A day is coming very soon when one of you will come to me and say daddy, how much will the Congress cost. Just tell me! Don't bother about anything - just tell me! Who am I talking to here tonight? Let me hear you say 'Amen!' loud and clear.
Ohhh Thank You Lord! The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said, I should just tell you, I am bigger than your problem â€“ bigger than your problemâ€¦. (Amen!)
Intelligence has it's own womb. When God opens the womb of intelligence, all of a sudden you become so clever people cannot understand,. In 2 Chronicles 1:6-12, when Solomon asked for wisdom and God released it to him, he became the wisest man who ever lived. Students, your prayers should be: God open the womb of intelligence to me. There are people who read the same thing you are reading and by the time they've read it once or twice, they've got it all. When we were in school we used to say oh that fellow has photographic brain. If some people could have photographic brain, why not you. And it is all in God's hands.
I've told you the story before.. I said I would tell you stories tonightâ€¦
â€¦teachers said it was impossible they said even if we give him the answers to copy, he will copy it wrong. So they asked him to do the exam again and he scored higher. There is a student here today in the mighty name of Jesus Christ he will never fail another examination. (Amen!) And when God shuts the womb of intelligence then people you think should be clever begin to do stupid things. In Exodus 124:21-23 the Bible says Moses raised up his hand the Red Sea opened and the children of Israel went on dry land and the Egyptians followed. Have you ever thought about that? You are pursuing a people. Their God opened a door in the belly of the sea? Any intelligent fellow will say no go, go, go~ But God locked the womb of their intelligence â€“ that's why they followed! Every enemy that followed you here tonight you're never going to see them again. (Amen!)
What about opportunity? Opportunity has womb. When God opens opportunity, you just discover opportunity coming right, left and centre! In 1 Kings 17:8-16 a widow was gathering sticks to prepare the last meal when all of a sudden an opportunity came and the Man of God said to her, Give me the food first then after that you can prepare your own. It was the opportunity of a lifetime. The woman grabbed it and there was enough food for her, her son throughout the famine. Opportunities happen that God can open. The Almighty God is going to open the womb of opportunities to you from today. (Amen!)
I've told you before - The young man came when I was a lecturer at the University of Ilorin. I'd just joined. They gave me a house but there are some electrical works to be done. One of my friends here traveled down, an electrician, and helped me put everything right. When he finished I said what am I to pay? He said, Daddy, I have no money for transport back. Give me the money for transport back and pray for me. That was a great opportunity for him. He needed money, he could have charged me but he decided to use it as an opportunity to serve God. I said to him, you don't need prayer, you are already blessed. And he said Amen! I gave him the money for transport. He came back to Lagos and as he was coming back he saw a friend that he had not seen for years: Where are you now? That one said, I 'm working at Dodan Barracks what about you? Oh, I'm an electrical contractor. Come we have job! Within one month my friend was riding a brand new vehicle. I don't know who I am talking to but there is somebody who came here tonight, having to catch a bus, before the end of the year you'll be carrying people to the Holy Ghost Service in your vehicle! (Amen!)
O Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight,, he said up till today, when you take one step forward you take two steps backward â€“ one little success, great failures! The Lord asked me to tell you He will reverse that tonight. (Amen!)
When the door of opportunity is shut, problems follow. I pray, that from tonight, the womb of opportunity will be open wide unto you. (Amen!)
What about anointing? Because I know that there are some of us here who are not interested in business. All we are interested in is anointing. Anointing has womb. When God opens the womb of anointing, your body will be carrying high voltage, divine electricity. In Judges 15:14, the Bible says Samson was bound and brought before his enemies but the womb of anointing was opened. The Bible said, the Spirit of God came down mightily upon him and the rope that bound him cut itself as if it were something that caught fire There is something called anointing, the real thing, the original one, it will begin to operate in your life from now on in Jesus' Name! (Amen!)
I remember years ago when I was younger and I didn't have as much wisdom as I have now. If we are to use spiritual language, I was coming down from the mountain and I went to visit my friend in Ibadan. They were not expecting me but they had the sound of the car, came out, I went into the sitting room. I think it was the husband that first saw me, that first came out and tried to embrace me. Ah!! Daddy! The anointing hit him and he collapsed on the floor. And the wife came too, didn't look on the ground, or she thought probably the husband was greeting me or something â€“ Ah Daddyâ€¦ the anointing hit her she fell on the ground too. And there's nobody else in the house and I was sitting down! Husband and wife on the ground!!! And the husband, almost one hour! I was praying - God, don't let anyone come! That's called anointing! What happened to the anointing? It's still there it's just that now we know how to control it. That day before we knew how to put it under control I remember very well, there was a group of us and we just wanted to pray. I said, let's join hands. Big circle, one fellow on the right and one fellow on the left. And the womb of anointing was opened. The fellow on the right screamed, the one on the left screamed. Then, at that time, I didn't know how to control it, but that anointing is till there. It's only that we know how to control it now because we began to see certain things. Some people, because they saw that when we laid hands on people those days they will just be fallingâ€¦ so they said we too can do it, so when they want to pray for you they hold your head and begin to push you. I said Lord, I don't want part of that one. Heal them without my touching them. Let the power go as the Word is going forward, after all it is written, he sent his Word and healed them. Tonight in the name of the one who sent me, every problem in your life will disappear. (Amen!)
O Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here tonight,, He said I should tell you, your miracle can no longer be delayed. (Amen!)
What about death? Death has womb. When God shut the womb of death there will be no burial. In Mark 5:35-44 Jairus' daughter was dead but she couldn't be buried because Jesus took her by the hand and said, Little girl I say to you, arise! And death couldn't eat that one. In Luke 7:11-15 a widow was going to bury her only son. Jesus met her on the way! And said, No, no, donâ€™t go! Young man - come back! Every one that the enemy had decided to kill, because you came tonight the womb of death is shut in Jesus' Name! (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord said I should add, everyone who hears the sound of my voice, either here tonight or by tape, in the Name of the One who is called the Resurrection and the Life, the womb of death is shut in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Thank You Daddy!
I think I told you the story. A young man came to me and said, I have a problem. I said, What is the problem? He said in our family no man ever exceeds the age of 40. I said , that is a problem. He said, I've not finished. The big thing is that now I am 39, so I am the oldest person in the family. 40 is coming now. In other words the boy is saying, I have less than a year to go! So we cried to the Almighty God and asked Him to shut the womb of death! That's more than 10 years ago. That man is still alive today! Every one of you that the enemy has planned death for, in the mighty Name of Jesus you shall live! (Amen!) I say, you shall live! (Amen!) You shall live! (Amen!) I say, you shall live! (Amen!) I say, you shall live! (Amen!) I say, you shall live! (Amen!) You shall live and not die! Glory be to God!
When the Almighty God decided to open the womb of grave, even the grave gave birth to a living child. When He first stood by the grave yard of Lazarus and said Lazarus, come forth! the one who had been in the womb of the grave for four days came out alive. I am speaking to a woman here tonight, they probably have told you that your womb is dead, tell them out of the dead shall come my twins. (Amen!) Your dead bones shall live again. (Amen!)
When God opens the womb of a woman, babies begin to jump out. 1 Samuel 2:21 after God opened the womb of Hannah with Samuel, five others followed! I say five others. For those of you that the world has been calling barren, because of the One who lives forever, one day they'll be counting your children: 1,2,3,4,5,6 If you believe that let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)
So what do I do so that God can open the door of fruitfulness to me? I want you to note the following. Open doors to fruitfulness begins with divine visitation, to open a door, the one who has the key must come. Jesus came to the Lake of Gennasereth, He came there to visit Peter. The Almighty God will visit you tonight. (Amen!) How do I know? When I asked you to begin to praise Him, about 3 hours ago, Oh I was so delighted because I saw the way you did it â€“ nobody had to force you, nobody had to compel you! It was even difficult for some of you to stop! And when you praise Him, He comes. He's seeking for those who will worship Him, so when He finds a worshipper, He comes.
Open doors to breakthrough begin by divine visitation followed by divine choice. God chose the boat of Peter, He will choose your own boat tonight! (Amen!) Because He said, I will be merciful unto whom I will be merciful, He will be merciful to you tonight. (Amen!)
And then when we talk about Peter surrendering His boat, the boat did not really belong to Peter, the boat belonged to God. The Bible says the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof. Your body belongs to God, your womb belongs to God. The only thing is don't deny Him of what belongs to Him. The Bible says your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Don't misuse that body. You want Him to give you babies but God says stop committing adultery. Your body must be kept holy, it must be kept as a living sacrifice to the Almighty God.
You want God to open the womb of blessing? Don't forget rob Him of His tithe. He himself said that if you bring all the tithes into His house, He will open the windows of heaven and pour in a blessing, He will open the womb of blessing and pour in one for you that there will not be enough room to receive it. Don't rob Him of His first fruits because He said on Proverbs 3:9-10â€¦
Thank You Father! Thank You Father! Thank You Father! Alleluia! (Alleluia!) The Lord asked me to tell you a story and probably, I've told it only once before. Listen carefully to the story because there is something big God wants to do here tonight.
I think it was 1956 or 1957 I was staying with an uncle of mine who is a drummer. And he was a very poor drummer, whenever he had no money, there's no food for him, there's no food for me. One day we were very hungry. We were hungry! No money, no food, nothing! We didn't know where the food will come from. Suddenly one girl came in carrying a tray. Inside the tray was pounded yam and a good stew of meat. She said, looking at my uncle: My sister said to go and give it to you. My uncle said, Who is your sister? She gave the name. My uncle said, I don't know anybody by that name. My sister said I should give it to you! Okay, greet her. So she put down the food and left. As soon as she left, within two minutes we had finished and then the girl came back and said, I'm sorry, I brought it to the wrong house! We had already finished the pounded yam!
Why did the Lord ask me to tell you the story? The Lord said there is someone here tonight, I will divert a miracle to youâ€¦. Lift your hands to the Almighty God. I will divert a miracle to you, a miracle that is not even your own! I will divert a miracle to you! Blessed be His Holy name! Thank You Father! I want to magnify Your Holy Name! Thank You Father! Thank You because You will divert a miracle to me. I thank You! I bless Your Holy name! I bless Your Holy name! I bless Your Holy name! I bless Your Holy name! Thank You Father! Glory be to God! Thank You Father! In Jesus' mighty Name! Thank You Father! Thank You Lord!
Now I was saying, if you honour Him with your first fruits He said He will upon the womb of blessing. He said your storehouse will burst. That's what He said. What must I do so that God will open the womb of blessing. Serve Him until He will say thank you! That's what He did for Peter He said, I need your boat. Peter said, You are welcome sir! He said, Push away from the land. Yes Lord. And He sat down in the boat and began to preach. Peter stood there, patiently, until He finished His preaching and then He now said, I boy decide to say thank you. Launch into the deep, throw your net to the right.
God knows where your fish are gathered. He knows where you breakthroughs are. He knows how many children He can give you â€“ He has millions of them. He is the owner of silver and gold! There's nothing that you can ask for Him that is too much! I've told you before, after I became General Overseer and I left my mansion in Ilorin to come and live in a room in Mushin, Father build me a house! He said, Son, don't ask me for a house because I've decided to give you a city. That's what He said. I didn't understand Him. Now I do.
What is it you want from Him. All you have to do is say thank you! Thank Him until He would say thank you! I remember the story. I went to Port Harcourt several years ago. The Pastor there arranged for one man to be driving me about. Very big man, Mercedes 280. He was driving me everywhere. At the end of the trip when he brought me to the airport, looking as if I can't possibly give him money because I know he has much more than I have but I want to say thank you. So I said Please sir, help me give this to your children. So he took the money and began to say Amen, Amen! Amen! And I was surprised What's going on so I turned to the Pastor What? The Pastor said, He has no child. Ahhh But now he has â€“ now he has because the money I said should be given to his children. The following year I was visiting Port Harcourt again, As I was coming down from the plane, the same man was there with his car to receive me and a gift in his hands. He said, this is from my first child. Everyone of you here tonight, next Convention, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, you will dance forward with your own miracle. (Amen!) With service unto God we say thank You.
Thank You Father! The Lord says there's someone here tonight, He said I shoud tell you the day you share your testimony everybody will stand up and clap. I receive that one myself. (Amen!)
Finally, finally, follow Jesus diligently. If Peter had not followed Jesus he would have had only one breakthrough but when he got to land he forsook all and followed him and that's why he moved from one breakthrough to another; one breakthrough to another. Follow Jesus diligently. Now some of us, once we get a miracle from God we don't come again. No, no, no, no! What He has given you is just the first one. There are others, there are others. Stay with Him! Stay close to Him!. I know some people here they have never missed a Holy Ghost Service and when you look at them, where they were ten years ago is not where they are now because every month, God keeps pushing them up and up and up.
When I became General Overseer in 1981 - We were very few then - I used to see people from morning to evening. One day the members began to complain: Ah why? When strangers come they go in and you see them. We who are the members we have to wait. I said, Ahhh. Don't complain. These people come to take a bucket from the river. You are the owner of the river! You are living by the river. You can swim in the river. You can drink from the river, wash your clothes in the river. When you sit by Jesus said, when you follow Him all the way, in the morning you get a miracle, in the afternoon you get another one, in the evening you get another one. When you are sleeping you get one â€“ follow Jesus always.
Let's stand on our feet. I believe I've done my job tonight. There might be one or two people tonight who have not even surrendered to this Jesus. Come quickly, you don't need to be begged tonight. Even a dead man knows that God is here tonight. Come and surrender your life to Him. Let Him save your soul. Let Him bring about a change in you. Come very quickly because time has gone. I will count one to ten. If you are not here by 10 I know you don't want to come. Come let Him open the door of salvation to you and everything will change for you. 1â€¦2â€¦3â€¦4â€¦. 5â€¦. This is your hour of salvation, the gates of mercy are open now; the womb of salvation is open now. Come and surrender your life to Him. Let Him save your soul. The moment your sins are gone everything becomes new â€“ come quickly now. 7 now Come from all over the place, come and surrender you r life to Him. 8 now. He's calling you because He wants to be merciful unto you. He wants to be merciful unto you. Come to Him now. Come quickly! 9.. now
Now those of us who have already come, let us begin to pray and call on the Almighty God to save our souls, have mercy on us! Forgive all my sins Lord and I will serve you for the rest of my life and I will follow you all of the way, all the way! Just have mercy on me tonight! Save my soul! Those of you who are still coming, keep coming. Hurry up, hurry up! Make sure you get here before I finish praying. Stretch your hands towards these people and pray for them that God will be merciful to them
And pray for them. Ask that the Almighty God will be merciful to them, that God will save their souls, that He will forgive all their sins; that everything will become new for them! Pry for them brethren! Pray for them! Pray for them! Pray for them! For those of you in front - cry to God! Please Lord! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me! Have mercy on me O Lord! Forgive all my sins and I will follow You all the day s of my life. I will follow you all the days of my life! Come quickly those of you who are still coming because we are about to pray. We are about to pray now! we are about to pray! we are about to pray! Thank You Jesus! In Jesus' mighty Name we have prayed!
Eternal Rock of Ages! we bless Your Holy Name for Your Word that has gone forth tonight and I thank you for these people who have come forward. Please Almighty God have mercy on them in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Receive them in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Forgive them in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Wipe away all their sins with Your Blood in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Write their name s in the Book of Life in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Beginning from now let everything become new for them in Jesus' Name! (Amen!)! Thank You my Father! In Jesus' mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Amen!
Now I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward and I want to make you a promise. From tonight onwards, Iâ€™ll be praying for you and you will see the result of my prayer. So Iâ€™m going to need your name, your address and your prayer request. Those of you who are still coming, hurry up! So follow this brother, he will take you where the pastors are waiting. They will collect this information from you, bring it to me and then they will bring you back here. Letâ€™s begin to go nowâ€¦. Letâ€™s give the Lord a big handâ€¦
Alleluia! Amen! I donâ€™t know about you but I am confident God wants me to remember tonight for the rest of my life. Though I will still be coming back later on for us to pray more I want you to stand on your feet and just thank him that you are even here tonight. That you are even here at all tonight on this very special night, I want you to bless the name of the Lord. Bless the Name of the Lord! You will never borrow again in Jesus' Name!
Hannahâ€™s day came. It was because she was praying like she had never prayed before. There are prayers you pray as if to say to God , well if You answer fine, if You donâ€™t answer fine! But there are some prayers that you pray that God Himself will know â€“ oh I must answer this fellow! For some few minutes tonight we want to pray the kind of prayer that will move heavens. Because I know some of us are tired of barrenness, whether physical, material or spiritual. I am tired of poverty for example. I donâ€™t know about you. I didnâ€™t hear you! Iâ€™m tired of failure! I am tired of defeat. I donâ€™t want to weep again. For those of us who really are determined that this night something must happen â€“ we want to pray.
We want to pray the kind of prayer that a woman will pray I the labour room. There they donâ€™t pray like ladies and gentlemen. They pray in such a way that everybody will know they are praying. It is possible for God to do anything that He wants to do today. When the, mother of Jesus came to Him in the wedding in Cana of Gallilee - they said they had no wine, Jesus said,woman why are you worrying me â€“ it is not my time. But that day, the time came. The time is coming for someone here tonight.
I just want us to pray for few minutes! I want you to stand on your feet. If you are too old to stand then go on your knees. That is if you are too old to stand but this is not the time to fall asleepâ€¦.. I am serving a God of miracle, I know, yes I knowâ€¦.Alleluia!
I want you to cry to the Almighty God and say Father, open the womb of miracles to me tonight! Call on the Almighty God! Father, Adeboye is calling on you tonight â€“ open the womb of miracles to me tonight! Womb of miracles! Signs and wonders! Open the womb of miracles for me tonight! In Jesus' mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
We have just learnt that success has its womb, breakthrough has its womb, progress has its womb, Talk to God and say Father, open the womb of success to me! Open the womb of progress to me! Open the womb of breakthroughs to me! Go ahead! Talk to the Almighty God! You have the key O Lord! Open the womb, open the womb! The womb of breakthrough! The womb of progress, the womb of victory â€“ open the womb tonight In Jesus' mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
He can never, never, never fail x 3ce. Jesus reigneth foreverâ€¦..
Lift your voice to Him. Father, I know You canâ€™t fail! Donâ€™t let my own be impossible with you! Lift your voice and talk to Him! I know You canâ€™t fail! I know You wonâ€™t fail! In Jesus' mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
You know the areas where you are barren, maybe it is health or it is the area of poverty or lack of promotion or failure in examination or failure in life or lack of a future partner. You know where you are barren. Go to God now â€“ forget everybody. Say I have prayed before but now this is different, answer me tonight! Lord! Answer me tonight! Call on Him! Open your mouth and call on Him! This one is different O Lord! Help me! Help me! Have mercy on me! Let this night be my turning point! Help me Lord! I have nowhere else to go, why should the world say where is my God?
Thank You Father! In Jesus' mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Now I want you to join hands with your neighbour. Pray for your neighbour now and just say Father, help this your child! Give him what he wants. Go on talk to the Almighty God. Give him what he wants! Lord Give him what he wants! Help him! My Lord and my Saviour have mercy! help him! Look down with mercy on Your child! Help him! Help him! Help him! King of Glory help him! Unchangeable changer, help him! Help him! My Lord and my Saviour help him! Help him! help him Lord! Help him! Have mercy on him! Have mercy on him! Help him! King of Glory help him! Help him! Be merciful unto him Lord, help him, help him! Help him Lord, give him what he wants. Bless him Lord! Release to him what he wants, be merciful. Help him Lord! He canâ€™t help himself so help him Lord! You are the help of the helpless Lord, help Your child! Be merciful to him Lord! Let him receive mercy tonight! Thank You my Lord! Amen!
And then before I pray for you, I want you to pray for me too. I need help. Pray for me! Stretch your hands towards me and wish me whatever you wish yourself! â€¦â€¦.. Thank You Father! In Jesus' mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)
Father, we want to bless Your Holy name!. We want to give You all glory and honour tonight because we know it is impossible for You to fail. Accept our thanks in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Father, every sin that stands between them and their miracle, forgive in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Daddy, tonight open the doors of blessing to these Your children. (Amen!) Open the womb of all the barren in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Open the womb of fruitfulness to them in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) All those who are poor, open the womb of wealth to them in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) All those who are stagnant, open the womb of progress to them in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Everyone of us here tonight open the womb of breakthrough to us in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Open the womb of anointing to us in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Father, I know You canâ€™t fail. Help Your children in Jesus' Name! (Amen!)â€¦ Thank You Father! Glory be to Your Holy Name! In Jesus' mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody now shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!) God bless you! You may be seated!
GOD BLESS YOU!!!!
