Some years ago, a young man came to me and said “Daddy, I am about to attend the most important interview of my life”, I said “ok, you want me to pray for you?” he said “NO! I want you to speak a word into my life that is all I want”. So I said ok, it will be well with you! He said amen and he left. The second day, he came back excited, Daddy, I got to the place of interview, I sat before this great me, who formed the interview panel, fully prepared for all questions. And they said to me, what is your name? I told them. What post do you say you want? I told them Deputy Managing director; they say when can you start? I said anytime you set. They say come tomorrow.
He said Daddy, speak another one. So I looked at him and I said the God who has started a good work in you will perfect it. He said amen and he left, second day he came back, excited! Daddy, I reported at the place of work this morning, they asked me to go into the broad room again, I met the same people and they said to me, young man after you left yesterday, our managing director resigned, will you be able to cope as managing director? He said Daddy, speak another word. Why am I telling you this story?
Early this morning, as I woke up, my father said to me, that he has giving me full liberty to speak a word to the life of anybody who wants it tonight. So if you want me to speak a word to your life; stand on your feet, and because he has given full liberty to do so, all of you who are listening by television, all of you who are listening by the internet all over the world stand on your feet also. And I say to you in the name that is above every other name, number one, it will be well with you. Number two, God who has started a good work in you will perfect it. Number three, you will succeed beyond your imagination. Number four, whoever God has to move for you to reach your goal, that fellow will be moved tonight. Number five, when you ask for one favor, the Almighty God will give you three. If you receive that put your hands together for the Almighty God.
Open your bible to Mark 10 v 46- 52
And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the high way side begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me. And many charged him that he should hold his peace: he cried the more a great deal, thou son of David, have mercy on me. and Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man saying unto him, be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. And he casting away his garment rose and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered and said unto him, what wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord that I may receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, go thy way, thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus in the way.
In the life of Bartimeus, certain new things happened. Incidentally this sermon am about to preach to you is not a sermon, it is a message from God. The Lord ask me to tell someone here, that even a as I am going along, you should see this sermon as a message from Him to you. The bible says Bartimeus sat by the road side begging, he heard that somebody is passing by who is special. And he began to cry to him for help. People there asked him to shut up, he refused to be silenced.
Finally Jesus heard him! And God is going to hear someone here tonight and the first new thing that happened in the life of Bartimeus that day was that God stood still. Never before that day has God ever stood still for any person. The sun and the moon has stood still before as we read in Joshua 10 v 12 -14. But for the Almighty God to stand still because of anyone, had never happened before. For God the sovereign God. The one who says I will work who will hinder? The one who will say to any door, lift up your head ye door, be lifted up everlasting doors. The one will speak and it is thus. The Lord of host himself stood still. I have good news for somebody here tonight, because of you; the Almighty God is going to stand still.
Several years ago, when my last son was very small, I have a prayer closet next to my bedroom. very little closet, once am there nobody comes to bother me at all, all except this one; I will be flat on my face praying for nations, and he will come in and say daddy I want cookies. Don’t bother me go and ask your mother, No! Daddy I want cookies. The more I tried to push him off the louder becomes, so I learnt from experience, that whenever he come in, I must suspend my prayers, attend to him before I continue. I am saying to someone here today, whatever the Almighty God is doing right now, he will stop until he has solved your problems.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said the doctors are worried about a growth in your anus, the Lord asked me to tell you, he has taken it away.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said my grace that has made you great will be extended to your children.
The second new thing that happened to Bartimeus, which is about to happen to someone here today, is that the Almighty God changed his enemies to be his servant. The very people who were saying to him, you will die blind, the people who was saying God is not going to answerer your prayers. The very people who say you are going to die a beggar. They were the same people God sent to bring him his get his miracle. I have good news for somebody here tonight; all those who say God will not answer your prayer will come and congratulate you. it was a new thing. When you go through the scripture before that day, God has dealt with enemies in various ways. In Exodus 14 he drowned the enemies of Israel. In Number 16, he buried the enemies of Moses Alive. But to turn an enemy to a servant, it was the first time, it was a new thing, am believing God for someone here today, that before the sun rises, all your enemies will become your servants.
The third thing that Bartimeus got that day was a creative miracle.
Thank you father, the Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said because you are now on my side, you will never be grounded again.
In John 9 v 32, one man who was born blind, who receives his sight said, since the world began, it has never been heard that somebody opened the eyes of someone who was born blind, it was a first time miracle.
I have good news for someone here today, the kind of miracle you have never received before, you will get your own today in Jesus name. A young man was born blind came to one program, where the man of God was speaking on spare part, and how God can give you spare part. God can perform creative miracle for you. The young man said God I received two new eyes. He left nothing happened. He was still as blind as before. The following morning, when he woke up and he was wiping his hands across his face, he discovered that the place where eyes is to be which used to be very cold, is suddenly warm, by the third day, he saw that the place was swelling. I think it was on the seven day when he heard the voice of God, loud and clear; open your eyes, and he opened and he had two brand new eyes.
Some of you prayed here on Tuesday for creative miracles and you are already hearing testimonies. In the name that is above every other name, even before you get home, your own testimonies will come.
The Fourth thing he got that he got that day is uncommon promotion. God had promoted a shepherd boy turned him to a king before in 1 Samuel 16 v 11 -13…
The Lord said there is a woman here tonight, they call you barren, he ask me to tell you two great people will be kicking inside of you very soon.
The Almighty God said there is someone here tonight, those who said you have reached your limit, will soon be surprised.
Almighty God has turned a farm boy to a king before, the bible has said that the almighty God can pick up a beggar among dunghill and promote him till he become someone sitting among princes. But to pick a beggar, by the road side and transform him to centre of attraction the first day, it was the first time. I have good news for someone here tonight, up till this moment, nobody knows you, but by the time you are coming for next year congress, everybody will treat you special. How? I don’t know, but I am talking about the Almighty God and he has said, I will do a new thing.
The number five thing that he got; is that he got a new garment; somebody is going to get a new garment tonight.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said that which you are believing him for, has been released since yesterday.
The Lord asked me to tell you a story because there is a prophecy coming after that. Some years ago, I went for a prayer walk at night and because some people were also praying in the camp, they were very loud. I decided to walk into the bush so I can have some silence; I had this modern touch light that is rechargeable with me. So when I was walking into the bush, the battery was working, the torchlight was bright. After I have gone very far, suddenly the touch light packed up and it was a very dark night. And the road I took was a very narrow bush road. I said God what am I going to do, how do I get back to the camp?
And I remember that they taught us that if you close your eyes in a darkroom, when you open it might be a little light. So I closed my eyes and I just said God help me. When I open my eyes, there was a big moon out there in the sky on top of me. There was no moon when I was going into the bush, I said maybe I didn’t notice, Lord thank you. And I came back to where there was light, as soon as I got to where there was electricity, and I looked up there was no moon. Father! What has happened? He said I have given you a miracle personally for you.
The Lord asked me to tell someone here tonight, a miracle designed for you only will be given to you tonight.
You know there are some testimonies difficult to share, because nobody will believe you, am in total agreement with someone here tonight, a testimony so big that nobody will believe you, will be giving to you tonight in Jesus name.
I was saying in 2Kings 5 v 1 -14 Naaman got a new garment physically; his skin came back to him like that of a new born baby. In 2Kings 4 v 1-7 the widow of the son of the prophet, got a new garment, a new garment of prosperity. In 2Kings 4 v 8-17, a woman got a new garment of Joy.
but in the case of Bartimeus he got all of them together, a new garment physically, a new garment financially, a new garment of Joy, all of them rolled together and given to one man. And since Daddy has given me full liberty to speak into the life of some one, I here by decree, every garment of Shame will be taken away from you. Every garment of suffering will be taken away from you, and the Almighty God will give you a garment of Joy.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said in the New Year, expect at least seven major miracles.
The sixth thing that happened to Bartimeus was that discouragement led to break through; he was suppose to be discouraged by those who were saying shut up. He was a beggar, he should have said I better don’t offend this people because they are the one feeding me, but instead of discouragement, robbing him of his miracle, he pushed him into his breakthrough.
There have been cases where people was discouraged before but they still ultimately got there miracle, but on that day he was discouraged but he got his miracle immediately.
Tonight, all of you who had prayed again and again for something and you didn’t get an answer and you are now beginning to wonder, is God really alive. As the Lord lives, you will sing a new song.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said very soon, when people begin to say, God has done all things well, they will use you as an example.
The Lord says the Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said there is a joy that cannot be hidden; he said you will have a taste of that joy soon.
The number seven thing that happened; it is the summary of the whole story, which was that he got a very pleasant surprise. When he woke up in the morning, he didn’t know anything great will happen, he just woke up and, find his way to the road side where he normally beg, but before the day was over, so many things have happened in his life; he got his healing, he was no longer going to beg for the rest of his life, he didn’t even know that he had a destiny, that he was destined to be a follower of the Almighty God. He didn’t know that two thousand years after he died, people will still be talking about him. He didn’t even know that he was born to be great but in a single day, everything changed. And changed so thoroughly, that they were never ever able to be reversed.
In that name that is above every other name, I decree to someone here today; that the every miracle God will do for you tonight will never be reversed.
Bartimeus asked for mercy, why did he ask for mercy? He realized he didn’t deserve divine attention. Why should God bother himself answering a beggar by the road side? Why will God wants to answer a sinner? Why would God want to do a new thing in the life of many of us who are here? Considering the kind of life that we have lived before. Is it somebody before you now, who should be standing before you, but for the mercy of God? But he said I will be merciful unto whom I will be merciful, I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. The bible says it is not of him that wills, not of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy.
Many of us know that but for the grace of God, we should even be died by now but he kept us alive. Particularly till this moment, when he wants to do a new thing and the new thing had already started, and he included you among those people out of mercy. That is why Bartimeus didn’t say you must do this, he ask for mercy.
Believe me honestly there are things that the Almighty God says he will do tonight, that even me I am amazed. Within the next one hour you will see for yourself.
But in order that nobody will be left out, I want to an opportunity to those who have not surrendered your life to Jesus Christ. Whether you are here or you are listening to me all over the world, by television or by internet or by radio, this is a moment of decision, surrender your life to him Jesus today. Throw yourself at his mercy, and his blood will wipe away all your sins.
For those of you who are here tonight, come to the front those who wants to give their lives to God and since some of you are kilometers away, we have arrange some altars in the auditorium, you will find flags on them, find the one that is closest to you, go there and it will be as good as if you are standing before me here. There will be pastors to attend to you there in a moment. And as you come, begin to cry for mercy, ask him to save your soul, ask him to forgive you all your sins. Promise him that from now on you will serve him for the rest of your life, that you will do His will.
…In Jesus mighty name we have prayed, savior, I want to bless your holy name, I want to thank you for the salvation of the souls of people. You said in your word that whosoever will come unto you, you will not cast out; these people have come, please receive them in Jesus name, forgive all their sins in Jesus name. Cleanse them in your blood in Jesus name. Even as you are saving their souls today, write their names in the book of life in Jesus name and from now on when they call on you, answer them in Jesus name. And the new things that you want to do in all our lives, please Lord include them in Jesus name. Don’t let them go back into the world, let them serve you till the end.

… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. The wind of God will blow in you favor tonight.
