PROVOKING AMAZING MIRACLES 4th of June, 2010
Father we just want to bless your name, we want to give you all glory and honour because we have yet another opportunity to praise you and we shall praise you tonight, your name shall be glorified tonight and they will join us in praising you. Thank you Almighty God, glory be to your holy name. In Jesus mighty name we’ve prayed. Amen, Let somebody shout halleluiah! Please be seated, tonight is a different night, and you will receive different miracles in Jesus name. Now you will be wondering, aren’t we going to pray first, we are going to pray, but as I was preparing for tonight, the spirit of the Lord spoke to me and said that “I want my people to thank me basically for three things tonight”. And he wants me to explain why? So I will explain first and then I will release you to thank Him.
Father we just want to bless your name, we want to give you all glory and honour because we have yet another opportunity to praise you and we shall praise you tonight, your name shall be glorified tonight and they will join us in praising you. Thank you Almighty God, glory be to your holy name. In Jesus mighty name we’ve prayed. Amen, Let somebody shout halleluiah!
Please be seated, tonight is a different night, and you will receive different miracles in Jesus name. Now you will be wondering, aren’t we going to pray first, we are going to pray, but as I was preparing for tonight, the spirit of the Lord spoke to me and said that “I want my people to thank me basically for three things tonight”. And he wants me to explain why? So I will explain first and then I will release you to thank Him.
First we are going to thank him because we are breathing; the bible says all things that have breath to praise God. Several years ago, I realize the importance of breathing in a dramatic way. We were in our very first auditorium, we have just finished the convention, it went very well, so as usual very early in the morning, I got up to go round praising God. I was healthy and strong when I left home, I didn’t work long, I just walked for about five kilometer. Suddenly I discovered that I was having difficulty in breathing, so I quickly returned home, thinking that maybe things will get better when I seat down and I rest. Instead the thing got worse and worse. By 2pm in the afternoon, it was clear to me that I was about to die. I went into my prayer room; I said thank you Lord because anytime you say, I am ready to come home. I took a tape recorder, I said just tell me, who is to succeed me and so I can record it and then I will be ready to go. And God spoke to me and said, “I am not the one trying to take you home, it is the enemy attacking you”. I said that is good then, it is easy to handle the devil; the only one I cannot handle is God.
I thank God that within one hour I was breathing easily again. But, what I suffered in those few hours when I could not breathe easily, I don’t pray for my enemy to go through it. You can breathe easily, you do it all the time, and you don’t even remember it. And many of us had never thank God for the ability to breathe. So take note of that you are going to thank him tonight because you are able to breathe.
Second reason that God said you have to thank him tonight for, is because you can speak. Your voice is still there. The greatest problem of a little child is that he cannot tell you what the problem is. The problem might be inside the stomach, the mother might be checking the neck. The problem of somebody who cannot speak is a major problem; he can’t even call for help.
But you can talk! Some of you will remember, I told those of you who are older in the church the story before. Of a socialite who had a stroke and the stroke took away his voice. They took him to the best hospital in London; we had a common friend who invited me to please come to the hospital to pray for him. As we entered the room to pray for him, his wife was just leaving. After we prayed, we waited for a while and then he tried to communicate; he began to pat the side of the bed, where the wife was seating when we came in, my friend thought he was asking him to come and seat next to him, he signal no, it is the pastor you want him to come and seat? He nodded no. he took him thirty minute and serious sweating to communicate to us that what he was trying to say; is that is wife, who has just gone is coming back again. Thirty minute! And your voice is still there!
The third thing we want to thank God for “is that there is hope for you”. The worst thing you can ever hear from a doctor is to say there is nothing more we can do, there is no hope.
Some of you know the story very well, they brought a young man from London in 1983 to this camp ground because the doctors there said to the parent, if you want this young man to see his native land again, take him now because he will be dead in Less than two weeks. They brought him here we cried to God. That fellow that they say will die within two weeks is still alive today; God healed him, he went back to the same doctor, they checked him from top to bottom, and there is no traces of cancer left in him. He finished his first degree, he finished his second degree, he got married, and they say he will never have a child, he already has one. As long as you are breathing, it doesn’t matter what anybody may say, your tomorrow will still be alright.
Three reason why you are going to thank God this night; one, because you are breathing, two, because you have the voice with which you can tell God I thank you. The third reason: it doesn’t matter what the enemy may say, your tomorrow will still be alright.
I want you to stand on your feet now and for the next fifteen minute; nobody is going to stop you. Go ahead talk to the Almighty God, tell him you love, tell him you appreciate him, thank him because you are able to breathe, thank him because you have a voice to praise him, thank him because your tomorrow will still be alright, give him glory because there is still hope for you. Bless his holy name. Give him glory, use that voice to praise him, use your voice to magnify his holy name, praise the king of kings, praise the Lord of Lords, praise the ancient of days… in Jesus mighty name we worship
Alpha, Omega, you are worthy of my praises today, Halleluiah! (Worship)
Halleluiah! You are worthy of my praises today (2ce)
Alpha, Omega, you are worthy of my praises today
Halleluiah! You are worthy of my praises today (2ce)
Eternal rock of ages we bless your name, thank you for life, thank you for breathe, thank you for our voices, than you that we can still shout halleluiah! Thank you because we know our tomorrow will be alright. Thank you for January, thank you for February, thank you for March, thank you for April, thank you for May, and thank you for June. Thank you King of kings, thank you Lord of Lords, thank you alpha and omega, thank you the beginning and the end. Thank you unchangeable changer, thank you the most high God, thank you the one who is higher than the highest. Thank you the one who is greater than the greatest. Thank you the one who is better than the best. Thank you ancient of days. Older than the oldest, wiser than the wisest, richer than the richest. Glory be to your holy name. Accept our worship in Jesus name.
In all our lives, tonight, let there be amazing miracles, the kind of miracles the world had never seen before, perform in our life tonight in Jesus name. Thank you Almighty God. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Amen
Let someone shout halleluiah!
I want you to shake hand with two or three people, tell them as if you are not sure whether they can hear you or not, tell them my God reigns! Then put those hands together to the Almighty God and you may please be seated.
Those who are born on the month of June can please stand. Father I want to thank you for your children, who are born in the month of June, six is five plus; grace plus something extra. I commit all these children into your hands, in all areas of their lives, miracles plus, blessings plus, joy plus, promotion plus, progress plus, give to them on Jesus name. Give them a new beginning of Joy, a new beginning of victory, a new beginning of divine assistance, in all areas of their lives, let it be well with them and let them serve you like never before. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout another halleluiah! JULY HOLY GHOST SERVICE is going to be an extraordinary one, because the Lord says we shall be talking about “THE FLOOD GATE OF THE HEAVEN” it is a holy Ghost night you shouldn’t miss for anything.
My text is Psalm 67 v 5-7 let the people praise thee oh! God let all the people praise thee, then shall the earth yield her increase and God even our own God shall bless us. God shall bless us and all the ends of the earth shall fear.
I have told you before, that there are miracles and there are miracles. There are miracles that caused amazement, Amazement to an individual, amazement to a congregation, amazement to a city, amazement to a nation, and even amazement to the world.
What I am going to spend little time to do is what do I do to provoke a miracle to amaze me as an individual. In Luke 5 v 1- 9 a miracle happened in the life of Peter, that caused him an amazement. The man who fished all night and caught nothing, threw one net and caught so many fishes that his boat was full, the boat of his partner was full and the two boats were beginning to sink. The bible says he was amazed. Because he moved from total failure to total success in a very short period of time. What was it that Peter did, that provoked this miracle that amazed him?
1.) He surrender his boat to God, the most precious thing in his life, he surrender it. So if I want a miracle that will amaze me, I must surrender the most precious thing in my life to God. In Genesis 22 v 1 -18 Abraham surrender the most precious thing in his life; Isaac to God, the result the Almighty God swore, the only one who didn’t need to swear, swore; he said by myself have I swore, because there is nobody greater than me to swear by. He said I will bless you, I will multiply you. The Almighty God said to Abraham, because Abraham gave God the most precious thing in his life, he said my blessing for you and your family will never be reversed. That is an amazing miracle to Abraham.
As you surrender the most precious thing in your life to God, get ready for an amazing miracle.
2.) You must take God at his word. Peter said, “At thy word” I know what you are saying doesn’t make sense but because your word says so. That is all that matters to me. When I joined the Redeemed Christian Church of God, one of the things that God used to tie me that is that every time my father in the Lord, spoke, he says it is the bible we hold on to. As a mathematician, I know we have our textbooks, as a Christian the bible is our text book and in all my journeys as a Christian, anytime the devil tries to tell me something, that contradicts the bible, I ignored him.
When my wife became pregnant, after three cesarean operations, by that time we had taken Jesus as our doctor and some of my doctor friends were telling me that if you don’t allow us to operate to bring out the baby, your wife is going to breathe to death. My answer was, “it is not written in the bible”. What is written in the bible is that God, who brings to conception, will bring to delivery. What is written in my bible is that with God nothing shall be impossible. What is written in my bible is Christ in me the hope of glory. Not the hope of shame. And that is why I am saying to somebody here today, it is written your tomorrow will be alright. Take him at his word.
3.) Just obey Him. Peter said you said so, I will do it. The word of God says in Isaiah 1 v 19 if you are willing and obedient you will eat the good of the land. Whether the devil likes it or not, the good of this land of Nigeria and of whatever country you are where you are listening now, the good of this land belongs to us. If it is in the hand of wrong fellow, power will change hands.
What will I do so that I will get a miracle that will amaze my congregation? What do I do so that when I want to share my testimony the whole church will stand up and cheer, what do I do, so that when I get my miracle and I begin to share my testimony, people will open their mouth and they won’t be able to close it. In Act 3 v 1–11
When the layman at the beautiful gate suddenly got up, waking, leaping, praising God, the entire congregation in the church, the bible says they were amazed.
So what do I do, so that I will get a miracle that will amaze my congregation?
1) Look unto Him; the Almighty God for help. The Lay man looked unto Peter and John. But we have somebody who is greater than Peter and John to look unto. Psalm 121 v 1 –2 says I will lift up my eyes unto the hill, from whence cometh my help, my help comes from the Lord. Not my help come from heaven it comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Look unto him, don’t look unto man, man will disappoint you but God will never.
Thank you father, the Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said I will change that account that is in the red to black.
Thank you father, the Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said because you had praise me, I will stand between you and those who are trying to attack you.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said the pain inside your head is already gone.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said I will roll away the black cloud, so that your sun can shine again.
Thank you my Lord, daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said because you have found it difficult to swallow, doctors have query a growth in your throat, the Lord asked me to tell you he has taken it away.
2) What do I do so that I can get a miracle that will amaze to my congregation? Be addicted to praising God. When you read Act 3 v 8 – 10 in just those three verses, it is recorded that the Lay man was not just walking and leaping, he was praising God. And they repeated “praising God” two times. It means this layman inside of him, must have been crying silently to God “saying oh God, look at this people, they have legs; they can’t dance, they are free; they can’t praise you, they have food to eat; they don’t know how to say thank you. God if only you will give me legs, God if only you will set me free, God if only you will put an end to my poverty, I will show this people how to praise you.
When the day came and suddenly he found himself with his leg strong, knowing that he will never beg again, immediately they repeated “he was praising God”.
Look at us we are free, we can go anywhere we want, we are not in prison, we are not in asylum, we are not in hospital, when we ask you to praise him, it becomes very difficult.
Some people are already asking tonight, what is this one we are doing again; asking us to dance forward to give our offering, can’t we just seat down and let the ushers bring forward the basket. Our Lord is not a beggar, he loves a cheerful giver, from now anytime we want to give him, we will dance, as long as our legs are strong, we will dance forward, and tell him daddy, before I give my offering, I give myself, I give my offering, and I give my dance, I give my shout.
What do I do? This man by the beautiful gate became a testimony. Soon as he was able to walk, he could have gone home but instead, he went into the church and show them; look at what God has done. The reason God has not given many of us major miracle is that those he has given us we have not testify, many of us are too big to testify, let the small boys tell us what God has done for them, the little one, those who are not important. Testimony is not for the big men. What a pity! God looks for testifiers. You must be ready to testify, ready to witness.
The Lord says there is a minister of God here tonight, he said your anointing is leaking, ask me to tell you, whoever you are, wherever you are, you must repent tonight.
Thank you father, the father says there is someone else here tonight, he ask me to tell you, don’t worry I am not angry with you.
Mark 1 v 40 – 45 God healed a leper and told the leper, don’t tell anyone, keep your mouth shut. The Leper bow down and says yes sir, as soon as he turned around he began to tell everybody; He healed me, look at me! I used to leave in the bush, come and see the man who healed me. No wonder he was healed. God saw that he will testify.
What do I do? So that I get a miracle that will amaze my town?, so that everybody in the town, who will hear about it will be amazed, in the example of Mark 5 v 1 – 15 the bible tells us the story of the mad man of Gadarenes, he got delivered and the whole town was amaze, so what did he do, that caused him to get that miracles that amazed the whole town?
Number one, he worshipped Jesus, if you want a miracle that will amaze your whole town, you must be addicted to worship.
Number two, you must be willing to be free. There are some people that God wants to free, and they don’t want to be free, you say that is not possible, but I know it is true. I have met people who are sick, who says they don’t want to be healed.
I have known of somebody a very important person, who came to me and says “I need prayer”, I said what for? He says he was going for an operation and he wanted me to pray that the operation will be successful; I said why don’t we pray that there will be no need for operation. He said ‘you are a young boy, you don’t understand, you pray that God will guide the hands of the doctors’. He said don’t worry the money is there. I could almost say thank God for those who don’t have money for doctors. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, every one of you who need an operation, may the Almighty God do it himself?
Some people don’t want to be free from poverty, I‘ve heard somebody say, just ask God to provide so that I can get money for transportation; why don’t we pray that God will provide you with your own car? He said “there are all sorts of problem for those who have cars, they have to buy petrol, they have to take care of mechanics and then there are robbers”. If there is a spirit of poverty that is trying to hold you down, I rebuke it right now in Jesus name. You must be willing to be free.
Then number three, you must be willing to serve God, because when that Mad man was set free, and he came to Jesus Christ and he said I will follow you everywhere, Jesus said unto Him, go and witness to your own people, become an evangelist for me, Mark 5 v 18- 20.
What do I do so that I get a miracle that will amaze my nation, a miracle that the whole nation will hear about and they will be amaze. In the example in 1King 18 v 36 – 39 in the case of Elijah on Mount Carmel, who prayed and fire fell from heaven, and the whole nation fell on its face and they said your God is the Lord.
Now what was it that Elijah did, that got him an amazing miracle that amazed the whole nation? What must I do to get a miracle that will amaze my nation?
Number one, you must repair the altar of your heart. You must repair that altar called your heart Proverbs 15 v 8 says the sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to God. If your heart is not pure, if there is bitterness against your fellow man in your heart, If there is un forgiveness in your heart, if your heart is full of evil thoughts, if your heart is full of immoral thoughts, repair that altar tonight.
Number two, if you want the power of God to fall, when you pray so that the whole nation will become amaze, make sure that the altar of God is never empty. I have told you before, in all the seven cases in the bible, when fire fell from heaven, it did not fall on an empty altar, there is always something on the altar of God, for the fire of God to come down and consume and of course the best thing you can place on the altar of God is yourself as a living sacrifice.
Number three, if you want a miracle that will amaze your nation, you must learn how to eulogize God continually.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said that which is causing your body to overheat is already gone.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said that which have not allowed you to enjoy your life will soon be over.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said very soon, you will dance for hours and you will just keep on rejoicing.
In 1 king 18 v 36 listen to what Elijah said, God of Abraham, God of Isaac, and God of Jacob. He was eulogizing God, lean to do the same. Most of the time, we just keep on asking God for things. Don’t think that we are just doing it for doing it sake. When you hear us saying to him” you are greater than the greatest, we know what we mean by that. When we say you are higher than the highest; we are telling him, president may come, president may go, you remain the same. When we say you are richer than the richest; we are saying to him that our prosperity does not depend on any man. When we say you are stronger than the strongest, we are saying let all the forces of earth gather against us; as long as you are with us we will be more than conquerors. When we say you are wiser than the wisest; we are saying to him no matter what the enemy can try we will always be a step above them. When we eulogize he feels like let me stand up and do something for this child.
Those of you who know me very well, you have heard me said how my mother always got my school fee from my father, even though my father was very poor. But because she kept on telling him, you are the son of so and so. When your father went to war, he killed so many, he brought so many slaves. When your father threw a party he fed the town, he fed the civilian, he fed the military, when you father… my father’s head will begin to swell.
When you begin to eulogize the Almighty God, even ordinary listening to you, there head will begin to swell because you are praising the Almighty God, how much more when you are eulogizing the King of king himself.
But where we are going is what will I do so that I will get a miracle that will amaze the whole world?
Do you know it is still possible for you that before long the whole world will hear about you? Do you know that when the world talked about certain people, I always wondered why some of us just pay attention to this people and we don’t look at ourselves? Obama became president of America, three years ago; some people believed that can never happen, it has happened. He was born by a woman; his father is not an angel. When we talk about Bill Gate; one of the richest men in the world, this is a human being; he has a mother, a human mother and a human father. When we talk about Billy Graham, that great evangelist, he had a human mother, a human father and so on and so forth.
Now if God can do it for them, why can’t he do it for you? Some of you don’t believe that; God can lift you up to such an extent that people will begin to say, how can this be? where does he comes from? who is his father? who is his mother? And I am here to prophecy to you I thank God for what one of my sons said that there is power in prophecy, I am prophesying to you today, before you die the world will hear about you. I know some of you will say I wish I heard that one some ten year ago, but now I am old, Moses was 80 when the Almighty God began his amazing miracle. As long as you are still breathing it is not too late for you and I am saying it one more time in that name that is above every other name, one day very soon, you will become an amazement to the whole world.
What do I do? So that I can get a miracle that will turn me to an amazement to the world. That is the text we read to you, in Psalm 67 v 5 -7 it says let the whole earth praise you and am one of the whole earth. I can make up my mind that if nobody else will praise him, I will praise him. One of my children quoted Psalm 34 v 1 he said “I will praise the Lord at all time; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. In other words I don’t care what other do, my own is a settled matter. I will praise the Lord at all time; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
We held a minister conference, somewhere about two weeks ago, ministers from all denominations. They ask me to speak, after I have finished speaking, it was question time and I said I will answer three questions. The first question was deeply theological, I answered to the best of my ability, the second one was even deeper and the third one, a great minister got up and said, Pastor Adeboye tell us, why is that wherever you go , you go with a tambourine? I say “thank you for asking, it is not a talisman, it is to say to God, anywhere I have the opportunity, I am ready pray to praise, I am ready to dance, I am ready to sing”. And I don’t care who knows. Let the devil know that here is somebody who will never become too big to praise God. I do I get a miracle that will amaze the world?, praise him individually.
Number two, as much as possible get other people to praise him with you. Psalm 34 v 3 David said magnify the Lord with me, he had already said in Verse 1, I will praise the Lord, then he said what are you looking at? join me! Let’s do it together. Because in the text we read, he said let the whole earth praise you, let all the people praise him. Tell your neighbor; please praise the Lord with me.
Number three, praise him in one accord. I thank God that he chose the month of June, as the month when we will be praising Him, I thank Him because some days ago, as I was reviewing the prophecy for this year and I see how they were all happening with terrifying rapidity. I came across the one that says “that the second half of this year will be far better than the first half. And I dance alone in my room. Because July is coming, June will soon end. The second half is on the way and my God never lies. The one who says there will be a lot of earth quakes and tremendous problem nationwide and they are already happening, he is also the one who said the second half of this year will be far better than the first half.
And then he whispered to me, he said because in June, my children will praise me. And amazing miracle will begin.
How many of you will join hands with me tonight, to praise God in one accord. How many of you will just say let’s just praise him, we have asked so many things in the past from him in the past, why don’t we just praise him for a change. How many of you will join me in praising him tonight.
Before we begin to praise him, those of you who have not given your life to Jesus Christ, come and surrender your life to him, the first thing you should give him is your life, it is only then that your praise will be meaningful to him. As long as you are not yet born again, you are in the camp of Satan, they don’t praise God there and even when they say they are praising God they are just wasting their time, you cannot remain in sin and say you want to praise God. If you really want to praise him, give your life to him first, say bye - bye to a life of sin, let him become your savior, let him become your Lord, then your sacrifice of praise will be accepted to him.
So if you want to surrender your life to Jesus, before I count ten come and stand before me, and I will pray for you and we will praise the Lord together. One, two, three…
As you come call unto to God, ask him to be merciful unto you, ask him to forgive you your sin, ask him to wipe away your sin today with his blood. And ask him to become your Lord and your savior, talk to him today.
The rest of us let us stretch our hand towards theses people, and pray for them that the one who save our soul, will save their souls too…
Thank you father, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. Savior, we bless your name, king of kings, Lord of Lords, ancient of days, the unchangeable Lord, the I am that I am, the holy one of Israel, the rock of ages, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, we worship you, accept out worship in Jesus name. we thank you for bringing forward these your children, everyone of then save their souls oh Lord, you blood that cleanses from all sin, let it clear them away from all sin, write their names in the book of life so that from today they will be children of the living God. Be their Lord, be there savior. Give them the grace to serve you to the end, in Jesus might name we have prayed.
Let’s stand on our feet, ask God for one thing… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed. God of miracles, God of wonders, the one who can reverse the irreversible, the one who can make the impossible possible. I bless your holy name, on behalf of everybody here tonight; accept our thanks in Jesus name. That which your children as asked for now, before the sun rises, release to them in Jesus name. Because you have done it before, because I know you will do it again, I ask Lord God almighty, before the sun rises today, change the request of your children to testimony, let this month be an extremely successful month for all your children in Jesus name.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here right now, he asked me to tell you the contract shall be restored.
The Lord says there is someone here today; he said before the end of this month, you will know the full meaning of a pleasant surprise.
The Lord ask me to tell you brethren, he said loud and clear, shout my “joy cometh”
Thank you father, the Lord said there is no need to pray any further, nothing to say any more. Almighty God bless the offering of your children, sanctify it, use it for your glory and that Joy that is on the way let it arrive, very ,very quickly, In Jesus name we have prayed.
Go in peace the almighty God will go with you, your joy will never, never cease. Who got the greatest miracle of tonight? let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Pastor E. A. Adeboye
