Thank you Almighty God, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout halleluiah!
Shake hand to as many people as possible and prophesy to them, tell them that your joy will overflow tonight.
PRAYER FOR THOSE BORN IN THE MONTH OF DECEMBER
My Father and my God I want to commit into your hands your children born in the month of December, December is the twelfth month of the year and twelve stands for a pillar, all these your children in their various homes let them be pillars, in their places of work make them pillar, in their Churches make them pillars, in their nations make them pillar.
Give them a new beginning, a new beginning of joy, of success, of progress of everything divine and let them serve you till the end in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
So if you are born in December let me hear you shout halleluiah!
As at 7pm this evening, the number of children born during this Congress has risen to 30 and the girls keep on leading; 11 boys, 19 girls.
Let the girls shout praise the Lord, and let the boys shout halleluiah!
My heart is full of joy because my Daddy tells me He will do something here today that He has never done before.
While I was in my prayer room, He reminded me of a very small stream in my village; just a very little stream but the water is clean, the water is pure. I drank from that stream when I was a child; I bathe in that stream when I was little.
Each time I go home, I still look at the stream, it is still flowing, the water is still clean, the water is still pure.
So the first prophesy God wants me to give someone here tonight, is that the overflow that is going to begin in your life will never dry up.
December 31, of this year, in this place is going to be a very, very special; we will have the last Holy Communion service here, that day which will be followed by service of song and drama.
And the service of song this year will be different from the previous ones, when the choir sings a song, we will sing our own. We will enter the New Year with a service, the theme of which is PREPARING FOR THE YEAR OF THE OVERFLOW.
So I am looking forward to see as many of you as possible there and you will be among those who will be hearing what the Lord would be doing in the year 2014.
Just in case you can’t make it there, I will be looking forward to seeing you in January Holy Ghost service, the theme of which glory to God is YOU SHALL LAUGH LAST, that is January 3, 2014.
Whether the devil likes it or not, those of you who are here tonight, you will see the new year and then on Monday January 6, 2014 we will have the first divine encounter and the first Shiloh Hour.
Open your Bible to Psalm 23 v 5 thou prepareth a table before me in the presence of my enemies, thou anoint my head with oil, my cup runeth over.
My cup runneth over, that passage didn’t say our cup; it said my cup runneth over.
So you make look at your neighbor and tell him/her, I shall enter into overflow tonight because my cup shall run over.
If you believe that let me hear you shout halleluiah!
I will be very brief tonight in the preaching so that you can have time to pray, those of you who have been coming since Monday you know this is an extraordinary Congress because of the intensity of prayers that has been going on since Monday and so we want to commit in that spirit of deep and intense prayer.
I want to share just a few words with you on the overflow and the first thing I want you to note is that our God is not a small God.
How many of you will agree with me that we serve a very big God. How big is our God?
The Bible says in Isaiah 66 v1 heavens is my throne, the earth is my footstool, He sits in the heaven, His leg touches the earth.
I’m telling you those legs must be pretty big. If you can sit in the heavens and your leg is on the earth.
Even if you are seated in the sun and your leg is touching the earth that must be some pretty long leg and so because our God is big.
He never does not do small things. He never does thing small. Whenever He wants to do anything, He does it big because He is a big God, for example Genesis 1 v 20-21 He said let the waters bring forth abundantly. And the moment he said that, the oceans were filled with all manners of fish and living creature. All he has to do is let there be and great things begin to happen.
So when He decided to make man and one woman, He said to them immediately in Gen 1v 26-28.
Now when He says multiply; it means really, really multiply. And am prophesying to someone here today, from now on you will begin to multiply rapidly.
So we see for example, by the time Israel came to Egypt in Exodus 1 v 5 the bible says there were seventy souls, but by the time they were leaving Egypt they had become six hundred thousand men, not counting children.
I prophesy to those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, your womb will obey God the God that made somebody of thirty four years bring forth. The same God will answer you tonight.
Because He is a big God and because He does big things, His purpose for your life is not to remain small. The purpose of God for your life is not for you to remain small, you may start small, but in the name that is above every other name, you will not end small.
When He was saying to the first Human being on the face of this earth and He said be fruitful and multiply.
The Lord showed me that He didn’t say be fruitful and increase, to increase will be added, but he said multiply.
And you don’t have to be a mathematician to know that the addition is less than multiplication. In the name that is above every other name your joy shall multiply, your blessings shall multiply, your miracles shall multiply and you will begin to overflow.
Some people go through life barely surviving Luke 13 v 17 tells the story of a woman who have been bound for Eighteen years, she didn’t die yet she wasn’tliving, she was barely living.
The Bible talked of a man in Mark 1 v 23-26 the bible says this man had an unclean spirit and yet he was going to church.
When God met him, he met him at the synagogue. We thought he was living; he was alive but demons were holding him in bondage.
In 2kings 5 v1, Naman looks as if he is successful, but what did we discover, he had a problem nobody could solve.
Whatever it is that is limiting your joy in the name that is above every other name, it will disappear tonight.
God wants you to overflow; He wants you not only to be healthy, He wants healings to flow through you we discussed that one on Tuesday.
He doesn’t just want you to be free; He wants you to be setting the captives free, we discussed that one on Wednesday.
Do you know that God does not just want you to be rich, He wants you to lend into a nation, He wants you to so prosperous that when nations can’t balance their budget, they will come and pay you a visit. He wants you to bring joy to your city; he wants you to bring joy to your nation.
He wants you to overflow!
But you have a choice, of all the things that God created, only man has the ability to decide whether what God wants for them is what they will take or not.
For example, God is ready tonight to bring you into overflow; you may tell Him you don’t want it. I pray you will tell Him you are ready for overflow.
You have a choice on how great you want to become. Because there are greatness and there are greatness, you can decide how great you want to be.
I will just give a quick example of Esau, because Esau sold his birthright even though he is still of the seed of Abraham and he became bless so much so that according to Genesis 32 v 3-6 even though he got just a remnant of blessing, the Bible says He still has four hundred body guards.
If a man has four hundred body guards, he is not doing too badly.
But compare that to his brother who became a nation. You will see a difference between one fellow who says he is great and the one who is very great.
I prophesy to someone here today in the name that is above every other name, you will end up exceedingly great.
But if you want to overflow there is a price to pay. Entering into the overflow is not cheap, so I need to let you know these things, because you may be able to decide at the end of the day whether you want the overflow or you don’t want it. To enter into the overflow, it will cost you certain things1. It will cost you total obedience to God Deut 28 v 1-13 God tells you what you must do so that you will begin to overflow, He said if you will hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God to observe and to do all that He commands you, then He said blessings will follow you. The blessings will be so many you will be running from them, they will pursue you, they will overshadow you. At that stage you will get to a level where like I said you will never borrow but you will be lending to the nations. 2. It will cost you hard work, because when God enlarges your coast as I am sure He is going to do particularly in the coming year. It is going to lead you to hard work. Overflow is not for the lazy, overflow is not for the slothful, overflow is for hard workers Proverb 22 v 29 says seeth a man diligent in his business, he shall stand before kings and not before mean men. Your promotion is at hand but it is going to lead you to hard work. 3. Moving to the overflow is going to cause you self discipline. Careless people, people who cannot control themselves cannot cope with an overflow.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said I brought you here because your time has come at last.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said in your family, everyone has a reproach, He asked me to tell you, I will take care of that tonight.
1Cortinas 9 v 25-27 Paul said if you want to be a master you must be temperate in all things.
You want to enter into overflow?
You must learn to do everything in moderation, must learn to control yourself, because your greatness is about to begin that is why I am telling you these things, unless you don’t agree with God but if you agree with God your overflow is going to begin tonight.
That is why I am preparing you for what is coming; total obedience to God, hard work, self discipline which is going to include taming your stomach, so that you can get ready for fasting, because the overflow is going to require self discipline.
And then of course, the overflow particularly in the financial session of it is going to require consistent and generous sowing.
2Corinthians 9 v 6-8 tells us you sow sparingly; you can only reap sparingly, no matter how much God Loves you.
2Chronicles 1 v 6-12 Solomon sowed a thousand offering, when next he was going to sow He had overflowed completely.
A hundred and twenty thousand sheep that is real overflow. Total obedient to God, hard work, self discipline, abundant sowing and lots of prayers, particularly in the spirit,
In 1Corthinans 14 v 18 Paul the apostle said I thank God I pray in tongue more than ye all Act 19 v 11-12 the Bible says God performs special miracles by the hand of Paul, his sweet overflowed with anointing, his handkerchief, his apron was healing the sick but he prayed in tongue more than any other person.
Some days ago, I was interviewed on the national television in New Zealand. And the young man there asked me a question after we have talked about how I travel, how I spend more time in the air than I spend on land, how I sleep in one room today and another bed tomorrow, he asked me,
“Do you enjoy your job?”
This is what I asked for;
I asked God to enlarge my coast and He has done so and He is going to make the coast larger.
I know it will require hard work.
Another journalist asked me, “Why are you always praying?”
I told him
“In African they say a man who is carrying a basket of egg in his hand has to walk gently, if you are carrying a heavy burden, you have to know how to link up with the Almighty God.”
Let me ask you a question at this stage, how many of you want to overflow?You want to overflow physically?
You want to overflow materially?
You want to overflow spiritually?
How many you want God to enlarge your coast?
Let me hear you shout a big hallelujah!
The Lord said “son, do you remember at the Jericho wall?”
I said “yes daddy”
He said “I want to repeat it tonight”.
So let’s stand up and give the Lord a big shout of Halleluiah!
My daddy asked me to tell you, the biggest obstruction to your progress has just been demolished.
Go ahead and give the Lord a big round of applause!
He wants me to give you a hint, I don’t know who this one is in particular but He said if somebody that you thought was a friend should die before the end of the year, you will know it is because of what happened here tonight, because the biggest obstruction to your progress has just been demolished.
How do I begin to overflow? Very simple, three simple steps;1. Stop looking at yourself alone; move away from God bless me to Lord make me a blessing. Stop just praying just for yourself alone, stop praying for God to bless you, now move on to God make me a blessing. Move away from God heal me to God heal others through me. Move away God help me to pay my rent to God make me a Landlord. Move from God bless me to God make me a blessing. Because in 2 Chronicle 1 v 6 -12 when God asked Solomon, what do you want, after he has made the thousand burnt offering, the reason he asked for wisdom and understanding he said so that I can take care of your people. He wanted to be a blessing to others. That is why God gave him the wisdom and understanding and what he didn’t ask for he added. You remember the story of a young man who came to say, I wanted to sponsor the convention, his faith wasn’t big so he said I want to be three of the people who will sponsor the convention. The convention was small then, but you still need some money to sponsor it. So I said that is wonderful, so I prayed for him. The following week he came, very upset. “What is the problem?” He said daddy “I told you I wanted to sponsor the convention, I got to my place of work they sacked me.” I laughed. He said “why are you laughing?” “You want to sponsor the convention on a salary that is less than one thousand Naira; I said how is that going to happen?” I said “God answered your prayer, He has closed one door, so that He can open another.” Within three months he was back. At that time Naira was narrow. He said daddy I know what I said this may not be enough but this is ten thousand Naira. Now ten thousand Naira of that time is more than ten million more now. I told those of you who have been here since the beginning of the week; if God sees it in your heart, He will put it in your hands.
There is somebody listening to me tonight, before the next Congress, you will come to me and say daddy, I alone will sponsor the Congress.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said I would not only remove your garment of shame, I will burn it.
God said there is someone here tonight; He said one more prayer and your miracles will come.2. If you want to enter into the overflow, get thirsty, get thirsty for God, in Matthew 5 v 6 In Mathew 5v6 the Bible says blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, they shall be filled. Begin to hunger and thirst for God. Elisha said when Elijah confronted him in 2 King 2 v 9-15 what do you want me to do for you before I was taken away from you, Elisha said I want a double portion of your spirit, and when you consider what a little portion can do, you can understand the kind of thirst that young man had, He said ‘I don’t just ordinary, I want extra ordinary’ no wonder he overflowed so much with an anointing that even after he was dead, his dead bones still raise the dead. I am believing God for someone here tonight, you have heard of people using the handkerchief that was anointed to raise the dead and all sorts and you were wondering when is that going to happen in your life! I have good news for you before the end of the year, you will touch the sick they will recover, you will touch the dead, they will rise. And I am not talking about dead people alone; I am talking of dead businesses, I am talking about dead project, I am saying anything dead that you touch will come back alive. At least some of you have heard testimony; years ago, I asked for a double portion of the anointing of Elisha, plus the double portion of anointing of Peter, plus a double portion of the anointing of Paul, plus a double portion of the anointing of the Lord Jesus Christ when He was here on earth, everything added together and double again. Thirst for God! I remembered the Almighty God said to me, “Son you are asking for trouble” I said “which kind of trouble?” He said “that thing you are asking for, they won’t let you rest.” I said “that is fine, just give it to me.” How many of you want the Almighty God to anoint you to overflowing? If you are ready to pay the price, let me hear you say amen loud and clear.
Stop looking at yourself alone, begin to look at how you can be a blessing to others, number two, become thirsty for God.3. Accept His invitation. Jesus had already given that invitation a long time ago. In John 7 v 37-39 He said if any man thirst let him come to me and drink, He said out of his belly shall then begin to flow rivers of living water. The invitation has been there a long time ago. All that He is waiting for is someone who will say to Him, I want to overflow, I accept your invitation.
Like I told those of you who were here yesterday, my Daddy says His children has been insulting Him by asking for small things, that we honor Him when we ask for hard things.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said I have stretched my two hands towards you, you will soon know the meaning of more than enough.
Daddy says I should tell someone, He says some stars are brighter, He said in your family there will be many stars but yours will be the brightest.
The invitation has been waiting; any man thirst, come to me and drink. Anyone wants to be overflown, come to me now, I have been waiting. Anyone who wants to heal the sick, cast out demons, raise the dead, He said come now, I have been waiting.
Anyone who wants to single handedly built the new auditorium, the Lord said come now I have been waiting.
Anyone who wants to overflow, God is not just about to prepare, he has already prepared the table before you long ago, all He is saying is come now.
How many of you will accept His invitation tonight.
Tell the Almighty God, I am coming, and I will drink tonight.
So we are going to pray, but as usual before we pray, we must give an opportunity to those who have not yet given their lives to Jesus Christ and yet they want this blessing.
The Almighty God will not give this kind of mighty blessing to someone who is not one of His own, because until you surrender your life to Him he can’t trust you.
You cannot be living in sin and expects grace of God to abound unto you.
So if you are here and you have not yet given your life to Jesus Christ, come now….
Begin to call the Almighty God to please have mercy on you, please save my soul, forgive all my sins and I will serve you for the rest of my life. Be my savior, be my Lord.
Then please brethren stretch your hands towards them and intercede for them, that the Almighty Savior will have mercy on all these people, that He will save their soul, He will clean them in His blood and bless them too. Let’s intercede that the Blood that cleanses from all sins will wipe away all their sins now.
Talk to the Almighty God now, ask God for mercy, ask Him to save your soul, and ask Him to cleanse you in His blood.
Promise Him you will serve Him from now on, ask that the Savior will come into your heart from now on and begin to dwell there, that He will give you a brand new beginning…
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Savior I want to say thank you for your word and I want to thank you for these your children that you have brought forward, Father remembers your promise that whosoever comes to you, you will in no wise cast out, they have come to you now Father, please receive them in Jesus name.
Forgive them in Jesus name; wipe away their sins with your blood in Jesus name. Even as you are saving their souls tonight, please write their names in the book of life, and I pray they will never go back into the life of sin, from this time onward anytime they call on you, please answer them by fire.
Let them serve you till the very end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
I want to rejoice with you because from now by the special grace of God I will be praying for you, very soon you will be receiving miracles, including the ones you didn’t even ask for and then you will know there is somebody somewhere praying for you, so am going to need your name, address and prayer request.

You will not die poor, you will lend to the nations, you will never be stagnant again. The Almighty God will cause you to overflow, you will overflow with joy, you will overflow with health, you will overflow with strength, you will overflow with anointing.
You will be a blessing to the whole world. It shall be well with you. God will bless your offering, He will sanctify it and use it for His glory and you will never lack again. So shall it be. And in the kingdom of God you will not be found wanting.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let me hear somebody shout a big halleluiah!
