I want to thank God to the two speakers who have spoken they have been a tremendous blessing, and I will be looking forward to that day when my children will be ministering and I will just sit down and enjoy myself too. Miracles will just keep on multiplying, so shall it be in Jesus name.
Psalm 126v1-6 when the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion we were like them that dream, then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing, then said they among the heathen, the Lord has done great thing for them.
The mouth of somebody is going to fill with laughter today; even your enemies will know it. The Lord has done great things for us whereof we are glad, turn again our captivity oh lord, as the stream in the south, they that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
He that continually goes forth weeping, Bearing seed for sowing shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
By the time some of you return next month you will come with beautiful harvest.
When the Lord turns away the captivity of Adeboye, it was like a dream, then was the mouth of Adeboye filled with laughter, tell your neighbor, I told you it is my turn to laugh. There is an English proverb it says he who laugh last laugh best, who is going to laugh last? Let me hear you shout halleluiah!
You see those who are laughing at you now, those who are mocking you, those who have written you off, they have forgotten certain things, and they have forgotten some important points.
I don’t know how much time I have, but I will touch at least ten of them, those who taught you can never laugh again, they have forgotten the power of prayer, they have forgotten that prayer changes things. In 1Sam 2 v 9-18 it was prayer that turn the tide for Hannah; so the one who have been mocking her, suddenly discovered that it was Hannah’s turn to laugh.
In 1Chronicles 4v 9-10 it was the power of prayer that turn the tide for Jabez, even the mother though that this boy would die sorrow, but Jabez cried to God and the tide turned around for him, in Isaiah 38 v1-5 it was prayer that turn the tide for Hezekiah, God himself said that Hezekiah will die, and Hezekiah prayed and God said okay because you prayed, I change my mind.
In 2 Chronicles 20 v1-25 the bible made it cleared that the enemies of Jehoshaphat combined their forces together and they were going to swallow up this man, but he prayed ant the tide turn for him.
That is why I am telling someone tonight today, the tide will turn for you today, those who thought you will die barren, God is going to surprise them, those want you to die in sorrow, when they see you tomorrow they will see that things have changed, those who thought you will die before the end of the year, when they see you tomorrow they will know you have just started your life.
There is power mighty in prayer, that power will turn the tide for you. God said in Psalm 50 v15, He said you call on me in the day of trouble, I will answer you. God is going to answer someone here tonight. In Jeremiah 33 v 3, He said if you call upon me in the day of trouble, not only will I answer you, I will show you great and mighty things.
In John 14v14, Jesus Christ said if you ask anything in my name I will do it.
In that Name that is above any other names, am saying to somebody here tonight, whatever prayer you pray here, before you get home, it will become a testimony. So they have for gotten the power of prayer.
Number two, they have forgotten the power of faith, they don’t know that there is tremendous power in faith, in Mark 9v 23 God himself said if only you can believe, all things are possible to Him that believe, how many things? all things are possible to him that believe, including somebody that is consider barren, that will come here next year with a triplet.
In Mark 5 v 35- 42, when they told Jarius that his daughter was died, Jesus said don’t be afraid, only believe and before that day was out, the one who was dead, came back to life and I am prophesy to all those womb that are considered died, in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, they will come alive.
In Matthew 15 v 21-28, a woman came to Jesus, praying, it appears as if God was not even paying attention to her, it appears as if the power of prayer was going to fail her, but by the end of the day, Jesus said woman, great is thy faith. Even if I don’t want to answer your prayer, I have to answer your faith. There is power Mighty in faith and I know you came here tonight because you believe that it is your turn to laugh, and in the name that is above every other name, it will be unto you according to your faith.
My father in the Lord in told me a story in his life time. He went to conduct a revival in our church in Ilorin, the spirit of God moved him to say, if there is anyone here who is trusting God for the fruit of the womb, go and buy the kind the of dress for the kind of baby you want. A woman heard and received that.
And went home and bought a baby cot, and bought a baby boy’s cloth and displayed it where everybody can see it, and everybody began to say, because of the problem of child bearing she had gone mad, so they began to laugh at her, she kept quiet. She held on to the word of the man of God, nine month later when the baby boy arrived, it was her turn to laugh.
There is somebody here tonight; I say it is your turn to laugh. It is your turn to laugh, those who have written you off, and those who say there is no hope for you. They have forgotten the power of prayer, they have forgotten the power of faith, and they have forgotten the power of agreement. In Genesis 11v 6,
Thank you Lord, He said there is someone here; He said by the time we finished, you will say this is the day you have been waiting for.
Daddy says those who refuse to co-operate with you will change their mind.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight He said your life up to date, can be described as insignificant, He ask me to tell you because you came in faith, everything will change.
In Genesis11v 6 God Himself said, He looked down from heaven and said the people are one, they have the same language, they are united and there is nothing they want to do that I can prevent them. There is a power of agreement, the Almighty God says when there is this kind of agreement, even I, the Almighty God can’t stop this people from what they want to do.
In Matthew18 v18-20, Jesus Christ said if two of you shall agree; you and your husband, you and pastor Adeboye. If two of you shall agree concerning anything you ask on earth, it shall be done for you by your father in heaven, I agree with you tonight that before the end of this month, you will begin to laugh.
In Deuteronomy 32 v 30, he said one will chase a thousand but the moment they become two they will be able to chase ten thousand. In Daniel 32 v 22-25, three people were in agreement; Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and their agreement brought God down into the fiery furnace. In Matthew 18 v 20, God said were two or three are gathered together in my name I will be there, those of us who are here tonight, we are more than two, we are more than three, were are more than a hundred, we are more than a thousand. God is here, to make some body begin to laugh,
“Who is that fellow?” Tell the Almighty God it is me!
You heard the testimony, those of you who were here, a husband and a wife came to us to pray for the fruit of the womb, so I asked them “what kind of baby do you want?” simultaneously they answered; the husband said a boy, the wife said a girl, so I said within the next one year, you will come with your children. The husband said did you hear that; he said children not just one child. When they returned, the husband was carrying the boy; the wife was carrying the girl.
I agree with those of you those of you who want twins, by next year convention in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, you will come with your twins.
I Have told you the story of a young man, because tonight is not just for those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb alone, it is for them, and it is for me too. One young man came and said daddy I want you to agree with me, I want to be one of the three people who will be sponsoring the convention, I said amen, I agree, that will reduce my burden, and then he left. A week later he came and said daddy I asked you to agree with me so that God will prosper me, so that I will be able to help you sponsor the convention, but now in my place of work they have sacked me.
So what happen? And I laughed, how much are you earning in a month? He told me, and I said how can you sponsor the convention with that. I agreed with you so that God can shut one door to open another one.
There is somebody here tonight, in the name that is above every other name, doors that you didn’t even know they are there; God will open them unto you today in the Mighty name of Jesus.
Those who have written you off, those who think you can never become anybody, those who think you will keep on begging for the rest of your life. When God turn the tide, it will be your time to laugh.
You see because those people have forgotten not only the power prayer, not only the power of faith, not only the power of agreement but also the power of sowing. In Genesis 8 v 22,
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here who is fighting a serious battle the Lord asked me to tell you. I will defend you.
In Genesis 8v 22, God himself said, not man, He said as Long as the earth remains, seed time and harvest shall never cease. It doesn’t matter how many enemies you have, seed time and harvest will remain as long as the heaven and earth is. And the word of God makes it clear that every human being is a seed. Genesis 4 v 25, every child that is born is a seed and Genesis 1v11, makes it clear that every seeds will produce after its own kind. Every one of you that was born, you are a seed; you will produce after your own kind. Somebody gave birth to you, in the Mighty name of Jesus; you too will give birth to somebody. But some people will say I know that is true but maybe I married the wrong fellow, maybe my husband has no seed, maybe my wife… there is something wrong with the womb. Matthew 12 v 33, it said make a tree good and its fruit shall be good, that is why I led you to pray a prayer at the beginning.
Malachi 4v 2, it says to everyone that fears my name shall the sun of righteousness arise, with healing in His wings.
You have already called on God that He will touch you with His healing wings. if there is something wrong with the husband, you have already call on God, make a tree good and his seeds will be good, if there is something wrong with the wife, make a tree good and its seeds shall be good in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, the healing that is the wings of the Almighty God, shall heal every husband, every wife here today in Jesus name.
At least you remember the testimony of a brother, when we were still in the very first auditorium, who heard my testimony, when I suddenly discovered I wasn’t hearing clearly, when people are talking I will see their mouth moving but I wasn’t hearing them, so I will say speak louder and they will say ah! we have spoken louder we were almost shouting.
And so when one of my daughters who was a doctor came, I said look at this ear, what is the problem, and she looked and say ah! and when a doctor says ah! You know you are in trouble, what are we going to do now daddy?, I said “what did you mean?” she said “I know you won’t go to the hospital but there are growth in your ears and we have to operate urgently” I said that is the problem, you can go and come back after seven days, if the growth are still there then we can talk again.
After she left I cried to the Almighty God, how can I do your work when I am deaf, I want brand new ones, I know you have my spare parts, seven days later, my daughter came back and check this time she said ah! This time there is no more growth there.
Let me stop and prophesy to someone, that thing which the doctors said it is impossible, shall be possible here tonight. Now a young man was in the auditorium when I was sharing the testimony, the doctors have told him; not that your sperm count is low, it is that you sperm is water, pure.
When he heard my testimony, he said ah! that is what I need, spare parts, God give me a new sperm!, so he cried to God and went home that was Saturday morning, and slept off in a chair in the living room and had a dream and in the dream he saw the general overseer come into the room and he smiled at him and walked away, when he woke up he said, God has answered his prayer.
When he was sharing His testimony, he was lifting up his new baby, the one they say he has zero sperm count.
Now I want to assure somebody here tonight, you don’t have to see the G.O in your dream, right now in the name of Jesus Christ, and God will answer your prayer. Anyone who keeps sowing will harvest one day. Harvest will surely come
Halleluiah! I can feel the power of God in a mighty way tonight. The Lord said there is some one here tonight; He said your business will enjoy a long season of sunshine.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is some here tonight; He said you will never have cause to be depressed again.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; He said those who threaten to finish you will lose interest in your case.
In 2king 4v 8-17, bible tell us the story of the Shulamite woman, taking care of the man of God, feeding him, built a house for him, she kept on sowing. One day it was harvest time and God gave her something that money cannot buy. Anyone who is sowing will surely one day have a major breakthrough, the power of sowing and reaping is a power that God himself fully support.
If you will wake up tomorrow morning and you discover that the earth still remain, they you will know for sure it is not too late for you yet. I told those who came to divine encounter, I said when God told me we were about to cover the arena. I was excited because I know this is something that have not been done anywhere in the world, but when He told me that I will take no offering for it, that there will be no special program for it, that it will be just Himself and myself, I was frightened. I ran into the toilet, how are my going to do it? , where will I get the money, but not long after that, one of my son from another ministry came to me and said, I heard about what God said He wanted to do through you, and I want to sow a seed and he gave me 25 million naira, I was encouraged because, I didn’t ask him, I didn’t write to him, I didn’t even know how he heard.
Two weeks ago he called and said daddy, God has just given me a gift of 25 million dollars, and that God told me I am doing this for you because of what you did for my son.
Anyone who keeps sowing must expect a harvest; there is tremendous power in sowing. Husband keep sowing your harvest is coming and everybody will see the harvest, if you believe that, let me hear you say amen!
Those who have written you off, they have forgotten the power of prophesy. What is prophesy ? Prophesy is actually telling people what God wants to do for someone. As a matter of fact, a prophesy is a revelation of what God has already finished in the spiritual realm, and then before it is manifested physically ,He then ask one of his children to tell His people before it is been made real in the physical realm, now if the prophesy is from God, nobody can stop it. Numbers 23 v19, it said God is not a man that He should lie, if He has spoken, He will do it, in Isaiah 55 v10-11, God said my word will not return to me void, In Ezekiel 37 v1-10, when God wanted to perform one of His greatest miracle, when He wanted to make dry bones to live again, He called for a servant, and said son of man prophesy, now God could have done it n His own, but He love to just work through a man.
And with all humility and gratitude to God Almighty, He has brought you and me together tonight, so that I can prophesy into your life, that whether the devil like it or not, it is your turn to laugh.
So they say your womb is dead, they say your husband cannot perform, you are not dry bone yet, even if you are dry bone. I stand on behalf of my Father in heaven and I prophesy to you tonight, your dry bone shall rise again.
And should in case you don’t believe I am His prophet, that is why at the very beginning tonight, I asked you to prophesy to yourself, remember I asked you to tell seven people, now those seven people will bear you witness when your miracles comes, they will say we were there, he told us we didn’t even believe, but look at him now, in the name that is above every other name, on the day you are sharing your testimonies, the seven people who heard you tonight will be around when you share your testimony.
In 2 king 7 v1-8, the bible tell us that things were very hard In a particular town, king of Syria has come to place a mighty siege against Samaria, so bad that women were now beginning to eat their own children, and the man of God spoke, the man of God prophesied he said within twenty four hours there will be abundance.
Somebody got up and said how can this be? So the man of God uttered another prophesy, he said you will see it but you won’t eat part of it, because you doubted.
The bible then tells us that there were four lepers, physically there were dying, and financially there were died. So they got up and said “we better go and join the enemies, if they want to kill us let them kill us, but maybe they will give us food before they kill us”.
By the time they arrived, the word of prophesy had already done its job. I have good news for somebody here tonight, before you get home, you will know that the word of prophesy had already done its job.
Don’t take prophesy lightly, I don’t claim to be a prophet but I hear from Him once in a while, I was telling my children in Asaba last Sunday, I said it will be a good idea if they can go and take the prophesies of this year and go through, things that God said will happen this year, maybe there should just take the one for the international scene.
One of the things God said is that there will be flood on a scale like we have never seen before, those of you who listen to news three million people were displaced in India by flood. Millions displace in Japan by flood, you turn this way flood, and you turn that way flood.
And God said that we should pray against the return of a destructive hurricane, how many of you remember this prophesies?
Alright if you follow the news, there is a particular hurricane called Catherina that devastated America, only this week, there was another hurricane called Gustav and it was coming and it was taking the same direction. And was getting stronger and stronger but I remembered we have churches there.
Please Lord have mercy, I know we didn’t pray as much as we ought to, but have mercy and the hurricane that was already in category four and it was expected to go to category five in answer to prayer It became weaker and weaker and weaker, by the time it landed…..
I don’t claim to be a prophet am just a child of God but I hear from Him once a while, let me assure you concerning somebody here tonight and I prophesy to you in the name that is above every other name, it is your turn to laugh.
And you remember the story of a messenger, when we were having a watch night service; and the word of God came and said there is somebody here who is having a problem paying his house rent that in the New Year, he will become landlord.
He was the only one who said amen. Landlord in Lagos and he was a messenger, but God has spoken and once God has spoken it is not you who will bring it to pass, it is God. If He has spoken it will come to pass.
New Year came, the boy went to great the chairman of his company, fell down before him and greet the chairman, happy New Year sir, the chairman said messenger, have I given you Christmas present? The boy said no sir, and he said Lagos state was selling some houses, I applied for one, I got it and I don’t need it, come and collect the keys. And gave him the address, the boy went there it is not a small hut, it is a house, it is not an ordinary flat it is a house, can this be true?, he put the key and the door open, you see the bible says when the God turned the captivity of Zion they were like them that dreamed, I prophesy to you in Jesus name, when your miracle comes you will think you are dreaming in Jesus name. He entered the house, went upstairs, this is my house, me? Me! My house?
The Almighty God said Houses that you did not built, you will leave in them, and wells that you did not dig you will drink the water thereon.
I prophesy once again that the miracle you don’t deserve, God will give to you tonight.
The boy went back to the chairman, fell on his face, roll to the right , roll to the left and say thank you for what you have did and the chairman said “by the way is there any furniture in the house?”, and the boy said no sir, the chairman said I change my furniture every Christmas, I don’t even know where I will keep the one of last year own, and he called one driver and said load the furniture and take it to this boy’s house.
I am telling you in the Mighty name of Jesus very soon your mouth will be filled with laughter.
Oh thank you my Lord, glory be to God, I want to say amen to this one, the Lord said, promotion is knocking at your at door.
Thank you my Lord, I want to say amen to this one too, the Lord said because of what I am about to do in your life, for one week you will be dancing in your room all night,
Those who have written you off, they have forgotten the power of prayer, they have forgotten the power of faith, they have forgotten the power of sowing, they have forgotten the power of agreement they have forgotten the power of faith, they have forgotten the power of prophesy, and they have forgotten the power of decree.
You see there is a different between prophesy and decrees, what is the difference? For prophecy to be fulfilled, it requires the faith of the one who is receiving the prophesy, for it to be fulfilled, like that lord who says if God was to open the door of heaven can this thing be? he saw it but he never tasted it,
In Luke 1v 34-38, when the angel told Mary, that she was going to become the mother of the Lord Jesus Christ without her meeting with a man , she said let it be unto me according to your word, there is a link between prophesy and faith. But when God move to level of decrees, the fulfillment of a decree does not depend on the recipient.
It depends solely on the power of the one making the decree, In Genesis 18 v 9-14, When God said to Sarah by this time next year you will be carrying a baby boy, Sarah did not believe, she laughed.
What kind of nonsense is this, I am ninety my husband is hundred and you begin to say I will have a baby.
But God said it is a decree, not prophesy, somebody did not just get up to say thus sayeth the Lord.
It is the Lord Himself who is saying this is what I am going to do, it is already done, there is the power of decree, and the Almighty God said in Job 22 v 21-28, it says if we can find a man who can fulfill certain conditions, who will put iniquities far from him, who will receive word from the mouth of the Lord, in short who will do the will of God, as perfectly as humanly possible. He says such a man will decree a thing and it shall be established unto him.
In 1Samuel 3 v19, the bible made it clear that there was a man called Samuel, human being like you and I , God did not allow the word of his mouth to fall on the ground, in other words when he decree, it is already done.
Well by the grace of the most High God, I am here tonight to make some decree; it is your turn to laugh.
I have told you the story before, may be a long time ago, I said I went to Ghana to go and visit some of our missionary, when I was through, they escorted me to the airport, and since I didn’t need the money in my pocket, my driver will be waiting for my at the airport in Ikeja, I emptied all the money in my pocket and gave it to the missionaries.
After they left an announcement was made that the plane that was suppose to take us to Nigeria will first of all go to Sierra Leon before going to Nigeria and suddenly I discovered I was hungry and there was no money in my pocket and I wasn’t fasting that day, suddenly it occurred to me, that God said I will decree a thing it and will be established unto me, and so I decree that all the official of Ghana airways won’t know rest until I leave their land.
five minutes later, all the officers came running upstairs and said where are those of you going to Nigeria? We said we are here. Has anybody given you something to eat, we said no, they said we have nothing except this cake, big cake, so they cut it to slices, I said half bread is better than nothing , but I was hungry, quickly I finished one, they gave us a bottle of coke, I quickly drank it.
And then the leader of the group looked at me and said, you want more?, I said yes, it remained one, so she gave me the remaining slice and a bottle of coke and I was eating that one now like a gentle man before I finished they made the announcement, that the plane that was suppose to go to Sierra Leon is going first to Nigeria. When we were boarding, when I was about to enter the plane, I then turn round and said now you can know peace.
I want to decree tonight, anybody wants me to decree something into your life? Stand on your feet, let me decree something into your life, in the name that is above every other names; all those who say you are not going to reach the top, God will scatter them, all those who say you will die barren, they will come and rejoice with you on this camp ground, all those who say you will die in poverty, you will buy cars for them. Even though your case may look hopeless now, before the end of this year your joys will over flow. If you receive that let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Now those who have written you off have forgotten so many things, forgotten the power of faith, the power of prayer, forgotten the power of agreement, they have forgotten the power of sowing, they have forgotten the power of prophesy, they have forgotten the power of Decrees, they have forgotten the power of anointing. In Isaiah 61v1-31 want to read that one to you because I believe that passage has to do somebody here, it said the spirit of God is upon me because he has anoint me to preach good tidings unto the meek, He has send me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberties to the captives and the opening of the prison doors to them that are bound, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all that mourn, to comfort them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they might be called the tree of the Lord, the planting of the Lord that He might be glorified.
When God anoints a man, it is for a purpose, anointing is not for roasting chicken, anointing is not for wearing flowing agbada, going every place telling everybody there is no man of God like yourself; that is not the purpose of anointing.
Anointing is for healing the sick, set the captives free, make the barren fruitful, to replace sorrow with joy, to make the poor prosper, that the one who anointed you might be glorified.
Tonight, I can say with all certainty that God has anointed me so that you who is listening to me now will be the next one to laugh. When you go through the scriptures, if you read 1Samuel 1v17, Eli said to Hannah, Hannah have been praying, it wasn’t the first time that Hannah will be praying, but Eli said may your request be granted you. The anointing on Eli made that possible, in 2 Kings 4 v15-17, Elisha said to the Shulamite woman, within a year, you will hold a baby boy, she said “don’t deceive me”. Elisha did not even repeat himself; he knows that the double portion of anointing will do the trick.
Now I thank my God because He knows that I love children, next to God I love children. If I had my way I will have had several of them myself that is why He gave me a special anointing for making the barren fruitful, that is why those of you who were here for convention, that this place could not take those who came with their children .
And I am praying to those of you who came here tonight, trusting God for the fruit of the womb, you will be among those who will be standing here with your baby next August in Jesus name.
There is power in anointing. I remember a woman when we were at the old auditorium, that night it was the Holy Ghost convention and God asked me to pray over a piece of cloth hold it, so that those that were barren can come to touch it. We were fewer in those days, but I thought those who were trusting God for the fruit of the womb will be like ten or twenty. I didn’t know they would be hundred, so they kept coming, and kept coming until I got tired, so I said I can’t continue.
Soon I saw a woman sobbing, “why is it that when it is my turn that you said you are tired, I want to touch the dress”, so I told the usher give her the dress, give the dress to her then she grab, it. The following year she came to testify, because the anointing of God touched the woman that night and destroy the yokes in her life, now I have good news for those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, God Has asked me to something special for you tonight, and I want to assure you, the anointing will destroy the yoke in your life.
So these people who have written you off have forgot the power of prayer, they have forgotten the power of faith, they have forgotten the power of agreement, they have forgotten the power of sowing, they have forgotten the power of prophesy, they have forgotten the power of decrees, they have forgotten the power of anointing, they have forgotten the power of the power of the Almighty God Himself.
In Psalm 91v1, the bible says our God is the most high and He is the Almighty, in order words He is higher than any problem and He is more powerful than anyone else. In Jeremiah 32 v 27, He said I am the God of all flesh, is anything too hard for me?
Thank you Jesus, halleluiah, the Lord said there is someone here today, He said before the new year all your reproaches will be forgotten.
The Lord said that there is someone here tonight; He said you are in the valley now, but one day is coming that those who are in the mountain will have to look up to see you.
God said there is someone here you have been having some bad dreams; the Lord asked me to tell you no more.
This must be definitely for me, Daddy says there someone here tonight, He said as fast as a new car is faster than an old bicycle, so will your future progress be faster than your old.
Those who have written you off they have forgotten that God can bring children out of rocks; Matthew 3 v 9 says God can bring children out of stones.
Those who thought you are going to die in poverty, they have forgotten that God can bring water out of rock; they have forgotten that when God opens no man can shut, if God says He will open a door unto you, who can shut. They have forgotten that this God is so powerful that this God can reverse the irreversible.
Thank you my Father,
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, the Lord said you are to expect three miracles; one will be physical, one will be material, the third one will be spiritual.
I don’t know whether I should announce this one at all because this must be my own, no doubt at all, but let me say it just in case there is someone else who will join me; the Lord said there is someone here today, He said a day is coming when they will set a day in the week just to celebrate you (amen).
Let me just hurry up because we still have a lot to do tonight. So those who have written you off, have forgotten the power of the Almighty God, they have also forgotten, He is not only the Almighty God, He is sovereign.
He does as He pleases, He Does what He want to do regardless of the enemy, in order words it doesn’t matter what the enemies are doing, what your boss are doing He is sovereign, in Isaiah 43 v13, God said I would work who will hinder, in order words what I want to do who can stop me? In Job 23 v13, He said He is one mind, who can turn Him, it said whatever He desire that is what He is does.
Psalm 115 v 3, He does as He pleases. Our God is in heaven He does as He pleases, what does that means? If He says He want you to laugh, then you will laugh, it doesn’t matter who says it will not be so. Those who say it will not be in their life time, and then it will be after them, those who say okay you will not reach the top, He can turn them to steps.
He said to Joseph, Joseph you will rule, his brother said it is not going to happen we will kill you and see what is going to become of your dream.
I could see Joseph that day when all the brothers fell before him and say we will be your servant, ah! That must be his time to laugh!
All those who say you will not reach your goal they will come and bow before you.
So those who have written you off, they forgot that today can be your day! You see in every man’s life, a day come that turns everything round.
Just take the example of Sarah, she has been waiting for a long time, but then her day came, when her day came without her knowing, she had a visitor of joy, when the visitor of joy came she was even hidden behind the tent, but the visitor of joy located her, asked for her, decreed unto her, ignored her doubt and brought to pass what God wanted to do for her.
I don’t for whom God organized this particular Holy Ghost service, but I remembered a prophesy that came on earlier tonight, when God said by the time this night is over somebody will know that this is the day that you have been waiting for. You know the bible say in Psalm 102 v13 he said thou will arise and have mercy on Zion, because the time, the set time to favor her has come. I believe deep within me, that the time God has set to favor somebody here has come up at last, if you are the one let me hear you shout halleluiah!
He said when God turned the captivity of Zion we were like them that dreamed then was our mouth fill with laughter and our tongue with praise then he said among the heathen the Lord has done great thing for them and we responded and said the Lord has done great thing for us, wherefore we are glad
I believe that your hour, your appointment with destiny has come. I only want to make this appeal to you don’t miss this opportunity, oh! God has prophesied, what He said will come to pass He has issue decrees tonight, they will come to pass, you see don’t miss this opportunity tonight, even though what He said will still come to pass, you may have to wait a long time.
He said to the children of Israel, I am taking you to the promise land, He took them to the border, you can go in now and take the land flowing with milk and honey, but they didn’t believe. Only two believed, the two finally got to the promise land but then it took them forty years. My brother, my sister you cannot afford to wait another forty years, so whatever He ask you to do, do it let this night be your night.
When it is time to pray, pray with all your heart, pray until God Himself say I have heard you. And if you know you are living in sin, please forsake sin tonight, because God wants to make you to laugh, by now you should be tired of sorrow.
So if you are here and you have not yet surrender your life to Jesus, come and surrender to Him, He will save your soul, He will forgive you your sin tonight, He will save your soul, He will forgive you your sin. If you say you have surrender to Him and you are still living in sin, stop deceiving yourself come and receive genuine salvation, if you are born again once and you have gone back into sin, come back to the Lord, He will restore you.
A night like this, only come in a very, very, long time. Come and surrender your life to Jesus Christ.
As you come begin to cry to cry to the Almighty God, ask Him to save your soul, ask Him to forgive all your sin, ask Him to restore you if you are a backslider, hurry up hurry up, those of you that are coming, cry to Him ask Him for mercy, ask Him to save your soul, . Promise Him that you will serve Him for the rest of your life….In Jesus name we have prayed.
My Father and my Lord, I bless your Holy name, I want to thank you for your word, I want to thank you for those that have come forward tonight, receive every one of us in Jesus name. Every sin they had ever committed, forgive in Jesus name. My Lord and my savior, because you have called them tonight, save their soul, write their names in the book of life, everything they need to make their joy, full release it unto them and the grace to serve you to the end give unto them, thank you my Father, in Jesus Mighty name we have prayed.
