In Jesus mighty name we worshipped.

Let us lift our voices to Him loud and clear and say: Father, answer my prayers by fire tonight.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty.

Father, please answer my prayers by fire tonight. Thank You Jesus. Hallelujah. Thank You Lord.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Your mercy endureth forever and ever

O praise His holy name.

Amen.

Wonderful Jesus, marvelous Jesus, powerful Jesus, glorious Jesus, miraculous Jesus, everlasting Jesus, loving Jesus, kind Jesus, faithful Jesus, reliable Jesus, glory be to Your holy name, accept our worship in Jesus’ name.

Tonight my Father and my God, the kind of miracles that You have never done before, please, perform them in our lives. In the lives of all those who are here, in the lives of all those who are listening to us all over the world, something so big that we will never forget tonight, Father, do it in all our lives. Thank You Almighty God.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Shake hands with two or three people and say good evening, God bless you and you may be seated for a while; you will be standing very soon.

I will be calling on you to pray very soon before we go to the sermon

I have received a lot of calls and texts and etcetera etcetera

Saying that Daddy why are you not saying something? Can’t you see what is going on?

Well, I am a Christian and as a Christian I belong to the Christian Association of Nigeria and the Christian Association of Nigeria has a Chairman or President.

Whatever He says, that is what I have said.

I am a Pentecostal; I belong to the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria

And the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria has a President

Whatever my president says that is what I have said.

That is how to be under authority.

Amen.

But to you my children and this time I am talking to my children alone.

I am not talking to Nigerians; this is not a press conference; I am talking to my children.

You see there are two sides of me:

One side is a Mathematician

The other is a Pastor

And somehow I cannot separate the two for long.

So, before I ask you to pray I am going to spell out some equations which we will solve simultaneously after which will do what we should do.

Equation 1: There are certain problems beyond man – there are certain problems man cannot solve.

Equation 2: There is no problem beyond God (that is equation 2) - Luke chapter 18 verse 27

Thank You Father

We want to spell out equations but God asks me tell somebody you have been suffering from severe neck pain, it started as if you did not sleep well but continue to become something serious; He asked me to tell you, the pain is gone.

So, where are we now?

Equation 2 – No problem beyond God – Luke 18:27

Equation 3 says: Man can hide from man – A man can hide from other men.

Equation 4 says: NO man can hide from God 

Psalm 139 verse 7 to 12: David said, where can I hide from Your Spirit? If I go to the top of the mountain You are there; I go to the bottom of the sea, You are there – there is no where I can hide.

Equation 5 says: Security Agents can be compromised – you can bride your way from the clutches of security agents – Security agent can be compromised.

Equation 6 says: God cannot be compromised - His holiness is not negotiable.

Isaiah chapter 6 verse 1 to 3: the angels are always crying holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty.

Equation (which equation is that one now?) 7 says: Man can sponsor evil – it is possible for man to sponsor evil.

Esther chapter 3 verse 8 to 9: A man called Haman said to the king, I want you to destroy the Jews; here is money for you to do it – I will pay you for killing the Jews

Equation 8 says: God cannot sponsor evil – it is impossible for God to sponsor evil - Job chapter 8 verse 20

So, we have eight simultaneous equations

If we solve these equations simultaneously, there is only one answer: “the Prayer Warrior is more effective than the Activist” – that is the solution.

If we put it another way, in a slightly deeper way, you will come to the conclusion that – you can call that the corollary – that, the enemies of God and the children of God make the same mistake.

There is only one mistake that is common to both the enemies of God and the children of God – they have one mistake in common

And what is that mistake?

Both of them underrate the power of prayer.

The enemies of God underrate the power of prayer;

We the children of God underrate the power of prayer.

But there are some of us who have come to realize that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, and they are mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holes.

So, that is why I am calling on you my children, I am talking to my children; I am going to ask you to pray some prayers tonight.

I want you to pray with the same energy, with the same intensity with which we pray the prayer against kidnappers when they kidnapped those school children and result came rapidly.

I don’t want you to pray like ladies and gentlemen tonight, I want you to pray like the children of the Lion of the tribe of Judah.

Are you ready to pray?

Stand on your feet and let me hear shout hallelujah.

You will lift voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, wherever those who are shedding blood are hiding, expose them and deal with them.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

They cannot hide from You, You know where they are, expose them Lord and deal with them. All those who are shedding blood, wherever they are hiding, expose them and deal with them; expose them, deal with them. Almighty God, they cannot hide from You, You know where they are, expose them and deal with them. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

You are going to pray prayer number two and say: Father, all those who are condoling evil, all those who are conniving with them, expose them and deal with them.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

All those who are condoling the evil doers, all those who are conniving with evil doers, Almighty God wherever they are; all those who have been compromised by evil doers, expose them and deal with them; expose them and deal them, You are the Almighty, You are the Almighty God, show Yourself mighty; show Yourself mighty O Lord, expose them and deal with them. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Prayer number three: you will say: Father, all those who are sponsoring evil and bloodshed, expose them and destroy them.

Go ahead and talk to the Almighty God.

All those who are sponsoring evil, all those who are sponsoring bloodshed, don’t just expose them, destroy them; destroy them; Holy One of Israel arise, expose all those who are sponsoring evil, all those who are sponsoring bloodshed, Father expose them and deal with them. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Just one more prayer; this one we want to make it a bit personal.

You will lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, anyone focusing on me, my family, Your church, for evil intensions, Father, destroy them.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Anyone focusing on me, my family, Your church, for evil intensions, Oh ***speaking in the Spirit*** Father, destroy them; wipe them out; wipe them out Lord. All those who are focusing on me, focusing on my family, focusing on my ministry, focusing on Your church, for evil intensions, haa, Father, wipe them out. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

You better let the heaven hear your amen.

I said so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Good!

Now, if you believe that the answer is going to come, let me hear you shout hallelujah.

God bless you

You may please be seated.

Now we are talking about Stronger than your Enemies Part Two

Our text as from last month is in Luke chapter 11 verses 21 and 22:

21When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

Now that is the main text.

The text for part two for tonight in found in Mark 11 from verse 22 to 23:

22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have Faith in God.

Turn to your neighbour and say have faith in God.

Say it one more time.

Say it the third time so that they will know it is serious

Okay

23 For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Please help me prophesy to your neighbour, God will answer you by fire tonight.

Now, let us spend few minutes appealing to those who are not yet children of God to surrender their lives to Jesus.

You see, it is not possible for a sinner to be stronger than his enemy.

Because according to the word of God, the hand of the sinner is weaken from heaven.

God says is in Proverb 13 verse 15, He says the ways of transgressors are hard.

The Yoruba interpretation is so accurate.

It says: God has given travail to the sinner.

In other words, the sinner is programmed to fail by God Himself.

In Proverbs chapter 11 verse 21, God said, even if hands join hands, a sinner will not go unpunished.

In other words, there is no way a sinner can overcome his enemy.

God saying even if he is hiding among the rest of us, if he singing with us, shouting with us but he is living in sin, God say there is no way he can escape punishment.

When you read Deuteronomy 28 verse 1 and 7,, the Bible says when you hearken diligently to voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all that He commands you;

He says in verse 7: when enemies come against you in one way, they will flee seven ways.

In other words, if you are child of God, the Almighty God said I will already fight your battles for you.

And if God is fighting for you, if He is the One smiting your enemies, there is no way the enemies can win.

However, if you are a sinner, according to Proverbs 28 verse 1, it says, the sinner flew when nobody is even pursuing him.

In other words, even when there are no enemies, a sinner will still be running.

I saw someone several years ago

He looked up he said haa you people followed me here.

I said, which people?

He said can’t you see?

When I looked up the only thing I saw was a lizard.

Haa, he said you don’t know them, they can change to lizard.

Sinners flee when nobody is pursuing.

So, there is no way sinner can be stronger than his enemies, he is already running, he cannot even stay to fight.

And then it shows clearly in John chapter 5 verse 2 to 14, it tells us that if God should give a sinner victory by grace, if God graciously decide to give victory to a sinner, something more terrible will still come upon him – the story of man who was sick for thirty-eight years.

And Jesus healed him without even asking him to give his life.

But he told him, if you continue with your sin something worse will come.

The Bible stated it clearly, Romans chapter 6 verse 23: the wages of sin is death.

There is no way the sinner can defeat the enemy – no way – the odd against him is too high.

Sinner will die because the wages of sin is death.

But if the sinner will surrender to Jesus then God says he will get the gift of life.

So in brief, those of you listening to me and you have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus; you have a choice to make.

In Deuteronomy chapter 30 from verse 19 to 20, God said, I AM placing before you a choice blessing or cursing; life or death; He said chose life that you and your seed may live.

You can continue to live in your sin and continue to be defeated.

Or you can come to the Lord Jesus Christ and have the Lord of host as your ally.

If God is behind you, if God is for you, there is no enemy that can withstand you.

So for two/three minutes those of you who are yet to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, come and do so now.

I am going to count from one to ten; if by the time I say ten you are not already standing before me I will know you have made up your mind you want to remain in your sin, no problem;

The enemy will like that very much because they will keep on dominating you.

But if you are tired of being dominated by your enemies and you want to be stronger than your enemies, come and surrender your life to Jesus; let His blood wash away your sins and you have a brand new beginning.

I am counting now:

One,

And those of you in the old arena you just go towards the altar there are men of God there who will attend to you.

Two,

Those of you at the other viewing stations just move towards the altar and the men of God there will attend to you also.

Surrender your life to Jesus and He will save your soul.

Three,

Now, don’t come to Him if you are not ready for a new life because if you come to Him you must say bye-bye to a life of sin; you must be ready to live a holy live for the Almighty God that is the condition.

When He said come unto me all ye that labour and heavy laden and I will give you rest, He said you must be ready to take My yoke upon you – the yoke of holiness.

Four, five, six,

Thank you those of you who are clapping

Seven, eight, nine,

Now, those of you who have come and those of you who are on the way begin to cry to Jesus now: ask Him to have mercy on you, ask Him to save your soul, ask Him to please forgive all your sin, promise Him from now on you will serve Him, ask Him to be Your Lord, ask Him to be Your Saviour; promise Him from this day onward you will be one of His children doing His will. The rest of us let us stretch our hands towards these people and intercede for them: pray that the One who saved our souls will save their own souls also; pray that God will give them a brand new beginning; let us intercede for them. If you are still on the way you have to hurry up now because the time for this section is almost over; come very quickly. Oh thank You Jesus. Let us pray for them for another thirty seconds, anyone still coming you have to hurry up, hurry up here, hurry up in the old arena, hurry up in the other viewing centres and cry to the Almighty God: ask God to be merciful unto you, ask God to forgive all your sin, ask Him to give you a new beginning; promise Him from now I will serve You, I will do Your will, I am tired of the devil anyway, I don’t want to live a life to sin anymore. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

My Father and my God I want to thank You for Your word and I want to thank You for your promise that whosoever will come unto You, You will no wise cast out; these people have come to You now please receive them in Jesus’ name; have mercy on them; save their souls; let Your blood wash away their sins; receive them into the family of God, give them a brand new beginning; please Lord don’t let them backslide, let them serve You till the very end.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Amen.

Praise the Lord.

Now, those of you in front I want to rejoice with you because from now by God’s grace I will be praying for you so I am going to need your names, your address and your prayer requests.

And the Counselors will give you cards which I want you to fill, just put the information I need very quickly; return the card to the Counselor and I promise you I will be praying for you.

God bless you.

Mark 11:22 to 23 says we should have faith in God, I believe that one is easy.

If we don’t have faith in God I don’t think we will be here tonight.

And He says if we have faith and we doubt not we will say to this mountain be thou removed and be thou cast into sea; as long as we don’t doubt, it shall be so.

Now, a mountain symbolizes a huge enemy: a strong adversary well rooted; a hindering force.

Mountain is something that says you are not going forward.

So what do we do if we find such a mountain in our lives?

I am going to beg you tonight to pray like you have never prayed before because Daddy promised me - and I think I have told you in some of the prophesies for the year – that mountains are going to move.

And since the prophesy He gave for examples for the international seeing are already coming to past: increase in flood; cold getting colder, hot getting hotter;

If you have been following the news, count down to the last has started.

If you listen to the news you will hear the Scientist saying now that the clock for the doom day has been moved forward to two minutes before midnight.

Even the Scientists have come out to say the end is near.

So if all these prophesy are already coming to past, I want the one about mountains moving to begin in your life right now.

So, what do we do if we find a mountain or we identify a mountain in our lives?

First thing is: Don’t ignore the mountain - You have to confront in order to conquer.

What you tolerate stays with you.

But what you confront, you can conquer.

In Matthew chapter 18 verse 18, the Bible says whatsoever you bind on earth is bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Bible scholars say what that means is whatever you allow, God will allow it; whatever you forbid, God will forbid it.

As long as you tolerate the mountain, it will stay.

In 2Kings chapter 4 verse 1 to 7, that widow of one of the sons of the Prophets, kept on tolerating poverty until the creditors came and said your children; then she woke up.

The day she cried out for help that is the day help came.

Help is going to come to somebody today.

In Matthew chapter 8 verse 1 to 4, the Bible tells us about a leper who came to Jesus Christ.

Only God knows how long he had been a leper.

He had been tolerating it; incurable disease, isolation; he kept on tolerating until one day he said no more - that was the day he was healed.

In Mark chapter 10 verse 46 to 52, for forty years Bartimaeus had been begging, he has surrendered to darkness.

He said, okay, O God made me this way; so he kept on begging.

But one day he made up his mind, ha ha, no more; no more darkness; no more begging; I want to see light.

The day he cried was the day he was free.

In Joshua chapter 5 if you read it from verse 13 and go all the way to Joshua chapter 6 verse 5 (Joshua 5 verse 13 to Joshua chapter 6 verse 5), you will see that Joshua was faced with the wall of Jericho

He did not pretend as if there was no wall

No no no

He went to see the wall; to see how do I confront this wall?

It was why they are trying to confront the wall that help came – that an angel came from heaven and told him what to do to get rid of that wall.

Do not ignore your problem.

Let us together confront it today so that this mountain can move.

I have told the story before of a sister who was barren

Year after year the Pastor kept on praying.

After sometime the Pastor said haha Sister, I have prayed for all others they have come to testify; what is the problem?

Oh, well, when I was a student I became pregnant by mistake and I aborted.

In the process of abortion, the Doctors in order to save my life when I was bleeding removed my womb.

Oh! Pastor said that is the problem you have been hiding – you have no womb and you ask me to be praying to God for children.

Pastor you are the one who said with God all things are possible!

The Pastor said I see.

From that day onward whenever the Pastor saw her coming, the Pastor will run.

One day she saw the pastor running because by the time she arrived they will say the pastor had gone out – she saw the pastor running.

She decides I will stop talking to man, I will talk to God.

That day she cried to the Almighty God

You all know the testimony at least some of you do.

That night she had a dream

In the dream she was standing stack neck and huge man worked into the room, holding the skin of an animal.

She was so frightened when she saw the size of the man; she could not move.

When the man got to her, he rapped the skin of the animal round her waist.

By the time she woke up she was menstruating again.

She knew God had given her brand new womb.

I think by the time she was sharing her testimony I cannot remember how many children she has – five or so.

Stand on your feet, stop talking to man, let us talk to God together.

Lift your voice and say: Father, I need help, help me right now.

Common, talk to the Almighty God

Do not pretend that you don’t have a mountain, let us confront the mountain so that it can be moved; let us confront this enemy so that we can conquer. Father, Adeboye needs help, I need Your help right now, right now, I need Your help; I need Your help Lord, I need Your help and I need it right now, I need Your help right now, help me. I need Your help, Almighty God I need Your help and I need it right now; help me, help me tonight; help me tonight. I need help, I need the help only You can give me, I am not talking to the Pastor, I am not talking to the Apostle, I need Your help Lord; it is Your help that I need; it is Your help that I need, Daddy You have to help me; help me and help me right now, right now, right now. I need Your help Daddy and I need it now. Thank You. Glory be to Your name. I need Your help Lord, I need it right now. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated

I know you are just beginning to warm up, you will pray with all your strength later.

Second thing you should is: Talk to the mountain.

Jesus Himself said so

He said …if you shall say to the mountain…

Engage the mountain in a conversation.

What kind of conversation?

Tell the mountain there are two of us now: you and I and one of us have to move.

Mountain, the one is going to move is not me.

Talk to your mountain and explain to the mountain the reason why you are not the one who will move.

Psalm 16 verse 8, it is written I have set the Lord always before me, my focus is on the Lord; He is at my right hand.

The Bible said so – the Lord is my shadow upon my right hand, so, I shall not be moved – it is written Psalm 16 verse 8

Mountain, listen carefully, I set the Lord always before me, He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.

Psalm 62 verse 6 - in case the mountain did not hear that - Psalm 62 verse 6: the Lord is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense, I shall not be moved.

Mountain, Jesus is my rock, is on Him I am planted: He is my salvation, I am saved; He is my defense – in case you think I am talking about my own strength, no no no, He is my defense – therefore I shall not be moved.

Psalm 125 verse 1 tell the mountain: my trust is in Him, in God; I am as mount zion in case you are just looking at an ordinary man, eh en,  I am as mount zion that can never be removed; it abides ever.

Mountain, there are two of us, you and I, one has to move and it is not me.

Hebrews 13 verrse 8 says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever – He is constant and He is unmovable.

And according to Acts 17 verse 28, it is in Him I live, I move and I have my being.

Mountain unless you can change Jesus that is when you can move me because I am in Jesus it is in Him I live, it is in I move, it is in I have my being and He is constant.

Not only I mine living in Him, He is also living in me.

Galatians chapter 2 verse 20: I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live.

The life which I live now is not me living, it is the Almighty Son of God that is living in me.

So Mountain in case you have not heard all I have said Psalm 121 from verse 1 to 3 says: I will lift up my eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help? My help cometh from the Lord who made heaven and the earth; He will not suffer my foot to be moved.

Glory be to God.

When the mountain knows that you know that you are not going to move; when it realizes you are not going to move, it is the mountain that we move.

I have told a story before:

Long ago, when I was very tiny, in the Primary school there was a bully there, big boy, bigger than I - I was very tiny, very weakly looking

So he was always picking on me: always beating me, slapping me, knocking me on the head

He knew I could not fight back he was too big.

But one day I just decided enough is enough and I just got this inspiration: I will fight this fellow; he will kill me, I know that one for sure;

But then if he kills me the government will kill him so it will be drawn game.

Soon the day came and he slapped me as he used to

I told him do not do that again

He said you spoke?

I said yes.

So he came back and hit me – knock me down

I got up and I began to fight him.

He kept on knocking me down and I kept getting up fighting

Knocking me down, I got up fighting

After awhile it entered into his thick head - this boy want to die; if I kill him I will be in trouble

He started running and I pursued him.

Stand on your feet and lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, in the mighty name of Jesus, I say to my mountain move.

Go ahead; open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Mountain move, in the mighty name of Jesus move because I am not moving, I am not moving mountain, I am not moving, so mountain you move right now in the mighty name of Jesus; I ask you to move. Haha Mountain you have to move and you are moving tonight, you are moving tonight, you are moving tonight not tomorrow, you are moving tonight. You move mountain, you have to move because I am not going anywhere, I am not moving; I am not moving; I am not moving; I am not moving; I am not moving. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, Mountain you are the one who will move, you are the one who will move, you are the one who will move, you are the one who will move; mountain you are the one who will move. Lagbara Olorun Eledumare, you are the one who will move. Mountain you are the one to move, you move. In the Name that is above every other name, mountain you move; you have to move; mountain you have to move, you have to move tonight in the mighty name of Jesus Christ; mountain you move, you move, you move, you move. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Now, you have to explain to the mountain why it has to move.

And the principal reason why the mountain must move out of your life is because it is blocking your view

As they say in Yoruba land – Je kin’ro kan (let me see where I am going)

Proverbs 29 verse 18 says where there is no vision people perish.

As long as there is a mountain blocking your view, there is a possibility of you perishing.

Proverbs 29 verse 18, where there is no vision people perish and I refuse to perish.

Psalm 100 verse 2 says I am to serve God with gladness; I am to serve God with gladness!

So, anything that is not allowing you to serve God with gladness should not be tolerated.

There are many of us who want to do mighty things for God; something is not allowing us to do some; we had to deal with that something.

The lame man by the Beautiful gate saw people going in and out, going and out (we will probably be talking more about him during the Special Divine Encounter Programme) and he saw the way they are dancing, saw the way they are worshiping God

And he said, ha, O God, how I wish I have legs, I would have show these people how to dance.

There are some of us we want to serve God but there is still comma in our lives

This is not allowing us to serve God with gladness, it has to go.

I say, it has to go.

In Mark chapter 8 verse 10, saying the joy of the Lord that is my strength.

Mountain that are causing me sorrow you are eroding my strength by blocking my vision; you are eroding my strength.

Because you see, Job chapter 17 verse 7 tells us that sorrow deems our eyes

When you are sad, you cannot see clearly.

Sorrow is something you cannot tolerate.

I have told you the story of a lady who came to us several years ago:

Fervent lady, she wanted to serve God but she had a mountain.

The mountain she has is: she has four daughters; the youngest of them was twenty-eight and no man had ever said ‘how now’ to any of them

So, the woman said I will wake up in the morning I feel like going out, ringing my bell, telling people to give their live to Jesus

And the devil would say Jesus mama; Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, look at you – you have four daughters all of them living with you; no husband.

She cried out.

You have heard me told the story before

God intervened

All four got married within a year.

Stand on your feet; lift your voice to the Almighty God loud and clear and say: Father, in the name of Jesus, everything that is not allowing me to serve You with joy must go tonight.

Go ahead, cry to the Almighty God. This is not a joking matter; this is not the time to Joke.

Everything that is not allowing me to serve You with gladness must go tonight whatever it takes. If it is sickness, it must go; if it is poverty, it must go; if it is loneliness, it must go; everything that is not allowing me to serve You with gladness must go, must go, must go tonight. In the Name that is above every other name, everything that is not allowing me to have fullness of joy must go, must go, must go tonight, must go tonight, must go tonight, must go tonight, must go tonight. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, everything that is not allowing me to serve God with fullness of joy must go tonight, must go tonight, not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, ha ha it must go tonight in the name of Jesus Christ; mountain you have to move, mountain you have to move, you have to move, ***speaking in the Holy Spirit***, mountain you have to move; you have to move. Every hindrance to my joy, everything that is not allowing me to serve my God with gladness has to go and it has to go tonight; it has to go tonight – if it is sickness, it has to go tonight; if it is barrenness, it has to go tonight; if it is poverty, it has to go tonight; whatever it is that is not allowing me to serve God with the fullness of joy must go tonight; must go tonight. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Jesus. Thank You.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus mighty name.

Please be seated.

I am not doing too badly but I hope that you know that destinies are being determined tonight and it is all in your own mouth, it is up to you.

The Bible says death and life are in the power of the tongue

If you like pray seriously; if you like pray casually.

But if you are man or woman of spirit you will know that I am not here to joke tonight.

And you have to tell the mountain: Mountain, I am not advising you; I am not advising – not advise at all.

You see because when you go through the scriptures you can see that there are various ways of talking:

There could be advice like in Deuteronomy 30 verse 19 where God said choose between life and death but He said I advice you choose life.

And/or there could be another kind of speaking when you are pleading

In Ezekiel 33 verse 11, God was pleading with house of Israel: He said, I don’t have pleasure in the death of a sinner, I want you to repent, live – He said turn and live why should you die.

He was pleading.

But in Matthew 28 verse 18 to 20, it was a command: go ye into the world

That is a command; that is not advice; that is not a plea.

But there is stronger one – stronger way of speaking – and that is a decree.

When God said in Genesis 1 verse 3, let there be light

It was not an advice, it was not a plea, it was not a command, it was a decree: let there be light and immediately there was light.

And I thank God for the preacher who spoke before me

He said, you are a voice, you are not an echo, don’t let the devil reduce you to a wiping little dog.

You are the children of the Lion of Judah and when your Father speaks, He roars.

The Bible say God has spoken once, twice have I heard it that power belongs to God.

Don’t let the circumstances around you reduce you to somebody who is whispering, you have the Almighty God dwelling in you.

Greater is He that is in you that he that is in the world.

When you speak you should roar

Let the mountain hear you roaring at it.

When your read Job chapter 22 verse 21 to 28, you will understand why I am crying about holiness.

Because it says if iniquity be in your hand, send it far away; send it far away, don’t toil with sin.

It says if you live holy it says you will decree a thing and it shall be established unto you.

Christian life becomes enjoyable if when you say something and it comes to pass.

Somebody asks long ago, when you say there is someone here… etcetera etcetera, are you prophesying or are you decreeing?

Haa! I said take your choice.

If it is a prophesy it is settled

If my Father inspires me to decree, oh, we get the result before the following morning.

That is where holiness comes in

I travelled abroad; I was away for two weeks.

I came back it was very hot

So I asked my children who came to meet me at the airport – I asked one of my daughters – what happened it has not rain?

She said no rain.

I said it will rain.

An hour later it started to rain.

So the following day she came to me and say Daddy what is it?

We have been praying for rain for two weeks it did not rain.

You came and you said casually it will rain

One hour later it was raining.

I said, well, did you obey your mother all the time while I was away?

You know mama now; if we don’t obey her fire will fall.

I say I know.

But when she asked you to do something, did you grumble.

Eh you know she will always send you on an errand at a time when you want to enjoy yourself.

So you grumbled.

Hmm, well, it is written, honour your mother and your father.

You stop grumbling, you will issue a decree and it will be established.

I have told you the story before:

I went to Kogi, it was in Lokoja and as we were driving through the main street I saw a huge tree in the middle of the road – capital city - the road had to bend round the tree.

I asked the fellow who was driving me

Haa, it is a sacred tree.

Eh en, sacred tree! In the middle of the road!

I said the tree will fall.

We went; we held our programme; came back and that night there was storm

By the following morning the tree was on its side, uprooted from the bottom.

Stand on your feet; lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, tonight I decree every mountain in my life move now.

Open your mouth and cry to Him.

I decree in the name that is above every other name, mountain move. I decree, I decree, mountain move. ***speaking in the Holy Spirit***. Move mountain. I decree tonight every mountain I am not advising you; mountain I am not begging you, I am not pleading, I decree mountain move, move; move mountain I decree it. In the mighty name of Jesus I decree mountain move, mountain move, mountain move, mountain move; ***speaking in the Holy Spirit**, mountain you have to move, you have to move. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ every mountain in my life move now. Thank You Father. Glory be to God. **speaking in the Holy Spirit ****Thank You Father. Thank You Almighty God. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Lord.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

I join my faith with yours and I decree every mountain in your life shall move tonight.

So shall it be in Jesus mighty name.

Please be seated.

Thank You my Father.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said your brain needs revival, He asked me to tell you I will breathe on it.

Years ago we used to have a meeting of what we were calling state pastors at that time every month.

And whenever we meet there was this one of us who will always say I have a testimony.

So, after sometime his colleague nicknamed him Mr. Testimony

And the reason Lord asks me to tell you that testimony is this:

He said there is someone here with loads of problems; very soon you will have loads of testimonies.

 Glory be to God.

Daddy asks me to tell somebody, He said power that raises Jesus from the dead will raise you from your present situation.

Now, I said if you talk to the mountain…, I am happy you are already talking to the mountain;

But if you pay attention to that passage, it says you should tell the mountain where it should go.

Say to this mountain be thou remove, you have already been saying that and be thou cast into the sea.

In other words, the Lord is saying you must do a thorough job tonight -You must finish the job tonight.

Don’t leave any of it till tomorrow; you must finish the job tonight.

Whatever it is going to cost, let us finish the job tonight.

You see because if you leave any little mountain behind, it will become a bigger one in future.

In Joshua chapter 11 verse 22, God as spoken to Joshua, the children of Israel, posses the land.

Eh eh, well, they took a lot of the land but they left some giants in Gaza and in Gath

I am sure you know immediately what that means.

Years later, one of the children produced by the people children of Israel left behind was Goliath.

He came from the leftover.

There will be no leftover mountain tonight.

When you kill Goliath tonight you must do what David did.

What did he do?

I am happy to hear that.

1Samuel 17 from verse 49 to 51: Goliath was already dead, the Rock of Ages have already smashed his head;

David did not stop there; God provided the weapon for cutting up the head.

There was story I read, the first I read I did not quite understand – it is found in Joshua chapter 7 from verse 1 to the end.

Joshua chapter 7: the children of Israel had had a mighty victory in Joshua chapter 6;

Then they got to Joshua chapter 7 and they attacked a small city and they were defeated.

Haa! What happen?

Joshua went before God: God this is not our agreement; You told me I will be stronger than my enemies and now I am running before my enemies.

What is the problem?

God says sin has entered the camp; you have to do something about it.

And then they discover that there was a man called Achan he went and stole what belong to God.

So, when they discover, Oga, what happen?

He said, it is true I stole God’s money.

And where is it?

He showed them and brought it out.

Joshua did not say: okay, my boy that is alright.

No o

He asked him to go and bring every member of his family, every member of his family.

If you kill mama snake and you leave bee snake; the bee snake will become mama snake.

That is not even the point

After they killed him and his entire family after they stone them to death and they were thoroughly dead, the Bible said they burnt them to be sure they are doubly dead;

And they heaped a great heap of stone over them.

In Yoruba they will say: atorun d’orun re

In other words, die thoroughly.

When you are dealing with your mountain you must not toil with it, you must tell it where to go.

Because if you leave a little bit of it behind that little bit will become the big problem later on.

I have told you the story before of a hunter who went hunting

When he went hunting he saw a tiger – I think I a tiger; either tiger or jaguar anyone.

Kill the tiger and all of a sudden he discover it has a little baby

And since a baby tiger cannot…, just like a house cat; he pick it up and brought it to the village.

The Chiefs saw the baby tiger and said hunter you brought a tiger!

He said, is a baby tiger; is armless.

And the baby tiger began to grow and he was eating everything they gave it ordinarily the kind of food people eat in the home

And the son of the hunter was choosing it has a bet, riding it all over the place.

Then one day, the son of the hunter was riding the tiger to the village stream

True story

And the then on the way the tiger stumbled a little and the boy fell

And when he fell, it scratched his hand on a tomb and blood began to flow

And when the tiger saw the blood he wanted help the friend – the little boy – so it licked the blood

And when it did, that what is in the tiger that makes it tiger came out

And with the twinkling of an eye the boy was dead and tiger went towards the village killing everybody he met on the way.

When you are dealing with your mountain, finish the job.

Stand on your feet; lift your voice to the Almighty God loud and clear and say: Father, every mountain leaving me today must go to the sea and perish.

Open your mouth and pray.

Every mountain and there must be none of them left they must all go now to the sea and perish. Every one of them, every one of them, every one of them, don’t leave any behind, don’t leave any behind, every mountain must go and go to the sea and perish there; go to the sea and perish there; go to the sea and perish there; must go to the sea and perish there; go to the sea and perish. Every little tiger in my life must die too; every mountain must go to the sea right now; they must not just leave me, they must go to the sea and perish there. Any attack that has come from the enemy must go back to the sender, let the sender deal with it; no mountain must remain untouched, every mountain must go to the sea and perish. Thank You Father. Every mountain must go to the sea and perish there in the mighty name of Jesus. Thank You Father. Go to the sea and perish there, even now as I am praying. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Oh thank You Father.

I want to say amen to this before I tell you

Because Daddy says there is somebody here tonight, He said throughout this year you will have nothing to regret.

Once upon a time there was a bird and the bird was flying in the sky and a hunter shot at it but the bullet missed the bird but hit only one wing and so the bird fell.

Before the hunter can come to finish the job the bird had manage to crawl away into hiding.

That night the bird cried to God saying: You Almighty God because You saved my life You can heal my wing and then the bird fell asleep

When the bird woke the following morning the wing had been heal so the bird began to fly again praising God.

The Lord asks me to tell someone you will fly again.

Okay

Daddy is the One asking me to tell stories tonight O

I have told you before:

Some years ago I was attending a conference and I was one of the guest speakers

I was standing outside the hall – the hall was big but the crowd was large

And there was this young man who saw me thought it was an opportunity for him to chat

So he came and was talking and was chatting and people were rushing him

Because even though the hall was big the chairs were not enough.

After sometime I said to the young man: Oga, I am enjoying the conversation but I hope you know that in there my seat is reserved and your own is not.

He left talking to me and ran.

The Lord asked me to tell the story to one particular person, He said He want to remind you that your seat at the top is reserved.

Now, Jesus said if you shall say to this mountain – in other word you must be specific

Not just any mountain, not just all mountain, ‘this’ particular mountain – be specific.

Your own mountain might be sickness

Say to the mountain of sickness: it is written, 1Peter chapter 2 verse 24 – by the stripes of Jesus I am heal.

If it is demons troubling you say specifically to the demons: it is written, Revelation chapter 12 verse 10 to 11 – I overcome you by the blood of the Lamb.

Tell the demon, it is written at the name of Jesus every knee must bow including you demon.

If it is poverty that is your mountain speak to it specifically, tell him Jesus became poor that I might become rich – 2Corinthians 8 verse 9

I know whenever they say it is time to sing the special song for a Holy Ghost service, some of us just sing the song, we enjoy it, we are waiting till the end so that you can shout hallelujah.

Pay attention to the wordings.

I am a Mathematicians; I am a Pastor; I am not a really song writer

But you see month after month He gives me a song for you

If you look at the song that we sang you will see it there:

I refuse to die because I live in Christ He lives in me.

I am stronger than sickness because His stripe is working for me.

I am stronger than all lack because He became poor that I be rich.

Be specific.

It is all in the song.

If your problem is persistent failure, tell failure I rebuke by the presence of Jesus in my boat.

You know Peter failed, Jesus came in and the failure became a success.

If it is stagnation, you have been on one sport all this year; the people they employed after you had been promoted after you; when there is donkey work to be done they call you;

When it time for promotion they promote the fellow in the club where they are drinking beer

That cannot continue – No!

If you work like an Elephant, you must eat like an Elephant from now on.

If you agree with me say amen.

If it is stagnation, rebuke it.

Tell the stagnation listen Jesus Christ said if I will be lifted up from the earth I will draw men unto me; I rebuke you by the resurrection and accession of Jesus Christ, He is already be lifted up from the earth, no more stagnation for me.

Be specific.

I am not going to go on telling you more stories because time is gone

But I am going to give you some two/three minutes to talk specifically, mention your own mountain – the mountain you know: the mountain of sickness, the mountain of poverty, the mountain of demonic oppression, the mountain of failure, the mountain of defeat…

Stand on your feet and just go ahead and rebuke them

And say: in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, mention the mountain - the particular mountain in your life – and tell it go to the sea

You sickness I command you disappear; cancer I rebuke in the mighty name of Jesus Christ go and jump into the sea; blindness I command you in the mighty name of Jesus Christ go and jump into the sea. Failure I command you in the Name that is above every other name go and jump into the sea. Be specific. Be specific. Be specific. Thank You Father. Don’t tolerate any longer, tell it you have to go - mention the name. **speaking in the Holy Spirit***. You know your own mountain talk to it specifically; tell it to go and jump into the ocean; do so tonight, let it go and jump into the ocean. Hallelujah Father. **speaking in the Holy Spirit***. Thank You Father. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Finally, please be seated.

I am rounding up now because I want the Ministers of God to lay hands on you tonight to combine their faith with yours.

After you commanded the mountains to move and I believe God had had you, your decree had been established.

The next we should do is that we must remember to return all glory to God.

The one who preached before me said life is war – you finish one battle another one may come forward.

If after God has done marvelous thing for you and I believe He has done so tonight, if you don’t thank Him you will need Him again.

In Judges chapter 15 verse 14 to 19,

Haa, thank You Father

Amen and amen

Daddy says there is someone here tonight, He said from now on My glory will overshadow you.

Judges 15 from verse 14 to 19, the Bible tells us what happened when they brought Samson bound - they brought him bound to the enemies;

The Spirit of God came mightily upon him, set him free, he grabbed the jaw bone of an ass and with it he killed a thousand men.

And then he threw the jaw bone away and began to boost: great Samson! With the jaw bone of an ass I have slain a thousand men!

Great victory!

And all of a sudden he became thirsty  

Haa

oh God, thirst is about to kill, what do I do?

God say the jaw bone you throw away pick it up – that thing which you think you do not need anymore; pick it up

He picked it up and God brought water out of the Jaw bone of an ass.

He drank and was refresh.

Never forget to give glory to God.

The major problem with us Christians is when the heat is on we turn on the fan; as soon as we are cool, we switch off the fan.

God is not a fan

That song writer said, I need You every hour.

So, I am going to give you some minutes just to praise God

So will you please stand and begin to praise the Almighty God; begin to magnify His holy name tonight.
