Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have worshipped.

Lift your voice to Him loud and clear and say: Father, this very evening do something special in my life.

Open your mouth and cry the Almighty.

Even right now my Lord and my Saviour do something special in my life. Blessed Saviour do something, something very special in all our lives tonight. Let this be very special night of divine visitation; visit us tonight Lord, bless us in a special way, do something great, something wonderful, something marvelous, something divine, in all our lives tonight. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Father we bless Your name. Thank You for January, thank You for February, thank You for March, thank You for April and now thank You for May, Father, accept our worship in Jesus’ name. Tonight, in the life of everyone of us and those who are connected with us all over the world – watching  by the internet, television or radio - please Lord God Almighty, do something special; let this night be a night of special divine visitation; bless us like never before and at the end of it all take all the glory.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Now, I am going to ask you to join me in a very special section of prayer before we proceed further.

I was in Germany and my wife of more than 50years said to me, she said, Darling you are unusually quiet this morning; what is the problem?

I said, well, there is no Father who will lose nineteen children in a day and will not be quiet.

She said, what do you mean?

Because she had not heard the news that in a church somebody went in and shot nineteen people.

Because it does not matter the denomination, by the special grace of God, all Christians in Nigeria call me Daddy.

So when any of them dies, it is my son that is dead or my daughter.

I am going to ask you to join me in prayer because unless these killings stop and stop immediately, even Nigeria may not live.

I am not talking about individual now; I am talking about Nigeria itself.

A Bishop asked me some time ago, Daddy…, it is a strange thing; only in Pentecostal chapels you hear a Bishop calling a Pastor Daddy

Daddy, has God told you who will win the next election?

I say Son, I am not even sure there will be an election because unless these killings stop there may be no election next year.

Are prophesying Daddy?

No, no, no, I am not prophesying, I am just reasoning.

Because nobody will want to go out to vote if they are not sure they will be able to return home safe.

I have seen war at close quarters when some people are agitating for war not too long ago.

There is nothing good about war, it is terrible thing.

But a nation may survive a civil war; no nation can survive a religious war and remain the same.

That Nigeria may live, this killing must stop.

So all of you who love Nigeria, I want you to rise on your feet and cry to God with all your heart and say: Father, let the killings stop.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Father, please, let the killings stop; that Nigeria may live Lord God Almighty let the killings stop. Let the killings stop O Lord; please, Almighty God, let the killings stop. Please Lord, let the killings stop; that Nigeria may live, let the killings stop. O Lord God Almighty, that Nigeria may live, let the killings stop, let the killings stop, let the killings stop please Daddy; let the killings stop. O Lord have mercy on us; have mercy  O Lord, have mercy on Nigeria, please Daddy, let the killings stop; let the killings stop, let the killings stop, let the killings stop; please Lord let the killings stop. Thank You Father. Let the killing stop, let the killings stop Lord, let the killings stop, please Lord, let the killings stop. O thank You God. Thank You Father. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

Today we want to talk about: Stronger than your Enemies Part 5, under the subheading: Habitation of the Almighty.

Our text is going to be 1John chapter 4 verse 4:

And why you are opening your Bibles I want to really really bless the name of the Lord for the wonderful testimonies we heard tonight.

God is increasingly answering my prayers.

You know, one of my cardinal prayers is that my children will be greater than I.

Now, one of my children has been use of God to raise somebody who has been dead for twelve day;

Haa, glory be to God.

I was a sport man but I never went to the Common Wealth games;

One of my daughters went and came back with gold.

God is answering my prayers.

How many of you are sure your tomorrow will be alright?

How many of you believe you will be far far greater than I?

Let me hear you shout hallelujah.

What a wonderful God will serve.

House fell, husband was there, wife was there, the only child they have is there, and God brought them out without a scratch!

What a wonderful God will serve.

My daughter just anointed a man with a goiter and the goiter disappeared before the morning.

What a wonderful God will serve.

1John chapter 4 verse 4:

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

You are habitation of the Almighty that is why you are stronger than your enemies.

As usual we will break our ministration into two parts: One small part - for those who are yet to give their live to Jesus and then the rest - for the rest of us.

When the Almighty God is dwelling in you, you will become a treasure; a treasure even to God Himself.

Because 2Corinthians 4 verse 7 says concerning those of us who are Christians that we have this treasure in earthen vessels.

There is something in you, your body is made of mold in earthen vessels;

But when Christ is dwelling in you then you have a treasure in that earthen vessel

So that the power that you begin to demonstrate will be of God, the excellence will be of God not of you.

A person is born again when somebody invites Jesus in his or her heart that person become a treasure to God.

So according to Zachariah 2 verse 8, anyone who touches that fellow is touching the apple of the eye of God.

Because you have treasure in your earthen vessel; because the Almighty is dwelling in you;

Anyone who tries to harm you is playing with the apple of the eye of God.

So, God will protect His own.

According to Zachariah chapter 2 verse 5, He said, He will build a wall of fire round about you because of the treasure that is in you.

When you go to houses in Mushin or Agegunle…; don’t think I am looking down on them, that was where I used to live before I came to the camp, so I am part and parcel of them;

…you don’t find many houses in Mushin with walls built round the houses.

You know why not?

What is the thief coming to still?

But go to Ikoyi, go to VI, go to Lekki, many at times you wonder whether, as a matter of facts you will be wondering how many prisons have we in Lagos?

Because you will see houses surrounded by huge walls and on top of the walls barb wires of the sharpest type.

Why?

Because there are treasures inside – treasures.

If a man has only two pair of trousers, two shirt and a third class or third hand bicycle;

Does he need a bodyguard?

You want steal the bicycle, the kind of bicycle we called keke-elemu.

Ehen, come and steal.

Why do we surround our president, our vice-president, our governors with so many people – bodyguard?

It is because they are treasures.

I remember years ago when I was the president of PFN and then some criminals were targeting Bishops all over the place;

My people called a meeting and said Sir, you need bodyguards.

I said, what for?

They say because you are treasure to us.

I told them that I have bodyguard that you cannot see, at least two of them.

When you are a child of God, you are a treasure because of what is in you – greater is He that is in you.

So God will defend you, build the wall of fire round about you; He will defend you from above.

Joshua chapter 10 from verse 6 to 11, the children of Israel were fighting a war and God began to rain bombs on their enemies.

The Bible said by the time the fight was over, those that were killed by God directly were more than those that were killed by men

Because the men were killing with sawl but God was breaking the head of the enemies with stones from above.

Some of you, some of the old people would remember this case very well:

A man and his wife came to church and after sometime we did not see the wife anymore

And we went to do follow-up: Sister, why are we not seeing you?

She said, since I started coming to your church I could no longer fly.

When you are child of God, the witches in your home will no longer be able to fly because God will be defending you from above.

And He will defend you even on earth here below.

In Numbers 16 verse 24 to 33, when some people rose up against Moses, God asked the ground to open its mouth swallow them and it did.

And I am decreeing today that if there are anythind present in your body right now, the ground will open its mouth and swallow them.

But if God is not in you, if you are not a child of God, you have not invited Jesus into your heart; you really have no value, you have no treasure in you and so the enemy is free to do whatever he likes with you.

In Judges 16 verse 18 to 21, when God departed from Samson the enemies moved in: they bound him; they plucked out his eyes; he became a prisoner.

I still remember very clearly as yesterday, a chief not too far from here; enemies were waging severe war against him.

His friend who happened to be a Christian invited me to come and pray and the Almighty God told me why are you wasting your energy praying for him, he is not one of Mine.

I told him, Sir, I thought you said you are a Christian; because God asked me to ask him some questions.

By the time I asked the questions, he said, I should not come again.

Are you a child of God?

Is God dwelling in you?

Because if He is dwelling in you, there will be special protection for you.

But if He is not, there is no treasure in you and the enemy is free to do whatever they like with you.

So, if you are here…, because we have a quite an assignment tonight; …if you are here and you have not given you life to Jesus Christ, it is in your own interest to choose:

It is either you invite Him into your heart and become a treasure to God

Or, keep Him out and you are on your own.

So I am going to counting from one to fifteen because I can see that some of you are very far away

Before I say fifteen if you want to surrender your life to Jesus, you want Him to come and dwell in you; you want to say bye-bye to sin because He will not dwell with sin

Then, before I say fifteen come and stand before me and I will pray for your salvation before will proceed further.

So, if you want to give your live to Jesus, you want Him to come and dwell in you, I am counting now:

One, two, three,

The choice is yours: you want to be a treasure to God or you just want to be someone who is not worth anything to God - the choice is yours

Four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen,

Amen.

Well, those of you who are on the way keep coming and pray as you come.

And those of you who are already in front, cry to the Almighty God.

Tell Him, I want You to come and dwell in me, save my soul and come and dwell in me; I want to be one of Your children, save my soul today, forgive all my sin; come and make Your abode in me.

Talk to the Almighty God.

And those of you who are on the way, keep coming and pray as you come. And the rest of us let us stretch our hands towards our brothers and sisters that God will save their soul, that God will have mercy on them; and the Almighty God will wash them clean with His blood, that they too will be accepted into the family of God. Pray for them.

Those of you on the way keep coming but you have to hurry up now. Thank You Jesus. Keep coming, keep coming, you are not late yet just make sure you get here before we finish praying because I am going to pray for salvation now; so, if you are coming, hurry up.

O yes, you need Christ in you for you to become a treasure to God. Cry unto Him, save my soul; come and dwell in me, come and dwell in me, come and dwell in me, make me one of Your children; wash me clean O Lord. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Saviour I want to say thank You. Thank You for Your word and thank You for these people who have come forward to surrender their lives to You. Please remember Your promise that whosoever will come unto You, You will in no wise cast out; they have come to You now Father please receive them in Jesus’ name; have mercy on them in Jesus’ name; please write their names in the book of life; accept them into the family of God and please don’t let them ever backslide in Jesus’ name; from now on, anytime they call on You please answer them by fire.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Those of you in front let me hear you shout hallelujah.

I want to assure you that from now on by God’s grace I will be praying for you.

So, the Counselors will give you a card, I need your name, your address and your prayer requests and I will be praying for you from now on.

God bless you.

We will wait for you till you finish filling the cards before we proceed further.

And I can see one or two still coming, keep coming, you are not late yet; the Almighty God will save your soul.

1John chapter 4 verse 4:

‘You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.’

When God is seated on His throne in heaven, He is in absolute control of the whole:universe.

Because He says in Isaiah chapter 66 verse 1, He says heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool.

So, He is seating in heaven and the earth is absolute on God’s control under His feet.

When He stands His enemies begin to scatter:

According to Psalm 68 verse 1 to3: let God arise and His enemies will scatter.

Now, when God begins to move, the earth begins to tremble

Because as I have told you before, when someone is seating in heaven and his leg is touching the earth that will tell you how long the legs must be.

So, when He begins to move, the earth begins to tremble:

Psalm 18 verse 6to 7 tells us that when He hears the distress call of His own, and gets up to act, then, the earth will begin to tremble and to shake.

When God is passing-by, He distributes miracles

Like in Mark chapter 10 verse 46 to 52: He was passing by when Bartimaeus cried out and that day the blind man received his sight.

Now, when God arrives at wherever His going, there will be an earth quake:

Acts of the Apostles chapter 16 from verse 25 to 29, Paul and Silas where is prison, they began to praise God, God arose from His throne and came to pay them a visit and there was an earthquake.

At the end of the incident, the enemy who was asked to keep Paul and Silas secure became their servant;

Those who threw them to prison had to come and beg them to get out.

So I want you to imagine what happens when God comes into a place and decide to stay-put.

When He is in heaven, He is in control;

When He arises, He enemies scatter;

When He begins to move, the earth begins to tremble;

When He is passing by, miracles will be happening;

When He arrives, there is an earthquake;

Suppose He now comes in and He says this is where I will dwell; I AM not going anywhere anymore, I AM seating down here?

That is why Colossians chapter 1 verse 27 says Christ in you the hope of glory.

If God decides to come and dwell permanently in you, there is only one thing you can expect from then on and that is glory.

Some years ago there was political unrest in a particular state and they were burning houses, killing people but there was a particular town they left untouched

Ten kilometers to the right, there was another town, oh, burning and killing and looting.

Twenty kilometers to another side of another town, oh, that one was even more terrible.

To the left, to the right, front, back, but there was this town everything was peaceful.

So one of the traditional rulers sent to this king and said, what did you do?

He said some people came to my town to hold a programme and I have decided that Jesus will reign in my town; when the Price of peace is reigning there can be no trouble.

I am going to ask to pray your first prayer tonight and every prayer you pray tonight you better pray hard.

I want you to stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, King of glory, come and dwell in me permanently.

Open your mouth and cry to the Almighty God.

Come and dwell in me permanently, permanently; come and make Your home in me. Come and dwell permanent, come and dwell in me permanently; come, come, come, don’t just come to visit, come and dwell in me permanently, permanently. Come and dwell in me; come, You are well come; I open the door of my heart to You wide, come to stay, come and dwell in me permanently, permanently; come and dwell in me permanently. King of glory, come and dwell in me permanently; because I know if you dwell in me permanently, the only thing I can look forward to will be glory. Come and dwell in me permanently. Come and dwell in me permanently. King of glory, come and dwell in me permanently; come and dwell in me permanently. Thank You Father.

And so shall it be in Jesus mighty name.

Amen.

Please be seated.

Now, if Jesus comes to dwell in you, what does it really mean?

Number one: it means the great Healer Himself has come to dwell in you.

When He is passing-by, He heals.

Mark chapter 5 verse 25 to 34, He was passing-by, a woman with the issue of blood came from behind, touch the hem of His garment and was healed.

In John chapter 9 verse 1 to 7, He was passing-by, He saw a man who was born blind and gave him two new eyes.

Many at times when you read these stories some people think is just something happening;

But something that happened years ago is still happening today.

When He is visiting a particular place – In Mark chapter 2 verse 1 to 12, when the news spread,  the great Healer is in this house -  there was someone who was paralyzed from neck downward, his friends carried him in.

As soon as he got to the presence of God, the one who was carried in left on his own carrying his bed with him.

It is not a question of Him coming once in awhile now, we are talking of resident Healer.

Because some of us might have private Physicians, Doctors you can call anytime you are sick

But he may travel; he himself can fall sick; on his way to attend to you it may be too late;

But when the Healer Himself is dwelling in you, the story becomes different.

I have told you the story before…; before you pray your second prayer

Years ago we were going to hold a programme in Port-Harcourt and the Lord spoke to me that I should go and stay in the house of a brother.

At that time that Brother was not even a member of our church

I said yes Lord because I must obey Him

But I was wondering, I have many children of my own in the town, why must I go to the house of this man?

Anyway, I told him God said I should come and stay in your house and he was overjoyed.

I got there and I discovered he has some children.

One of them, the first born boy became very friendly with me.

And one day as I was going for the crusade, I heard the sound of a car coming, I thought the children were coming from school.

I looked out, where is my friend?

Oh, your friend is in the hospital, he is dying.

Haa, what happened?

He was poisoned in school.

And immediately I heard God say, that is why I ask you to go and stay in the house.

I went with them to the hospital on my way to the crusade ground;

He was lying naked in a private room; the AC was fully on and yet he was sweating like no man business.

I was standing by the head of the bed to pray for him and the father was standing at the foot of the bed, the Doctor was standing behind the father.

I looked at the Doctor, the Doctor made a sign to me to say no hope.

But my Daddy has already said that is why I asked you to go and stay in the house.

I went to crusade ground, we finished the crusade, I came back home; as I was about to settle down, I heard the sound of car coming in; my little friend had been discharged.

Stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, thou the Lord that healeth, come and resides in me.

Cry unto Him

Come and reside in me; come and reside in me; come and reside in me; there are things Doctors cannot do, but You are the great Healer, come and reside in me, come and dwell in me; if You dwell in me I will overcome sickness, I will overcome disease, come and dwell in me Lord, come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me; Almighty God, come and dwell in me, come and dwell in me. If He is dwelling in you, you will overcome sickness, you will overcome disease, come and dwell in me; dwell in me, dwell in my house, dwell Lord; dwell before sickness could come, come and dwell; before disease can come, come and dwell; come and dwell Lord, come and dwell in me; come and dwell, come and dwell with me. Thank You Jesus. Come and dwell Lord, come and dwell in me so that sickness and disease will have no power over me, I can overcome; dwell in me, dwell in my wife, dwell in my children, dwell in my home; come and dwell Lord. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Christ in you means you a resident Protector.

Psalm 24 verse 7 to 10 calls Him the Lord of host – the Lord of host Himself.

When He travels, He does not travel alone

Revelation chapter 19 verse 14 tells us the armies of heaven follow Him.

So you can imagine when He is dwelling with you, the army, His army of bodyguards will be there.

In 2Kings chapter 6 verse 8 to 17, when an army, an enemy army came to arrest Elisha and the servant went out and saw that they were surrounded and he said my master, what shall we do, we are down fall.

The Bible said, Elisha prayed and said God please open his eyes.

When his eyes were opened, he saw horses of fire, chariots of fire, invisible bodyguards.

When Christ is dwelling in you, when you genuinely allow Him to dwell, He will not just protect you, He will protect those who are connected with you.

Because of you, He will extend the protection to those who are precious to you.

I have told you the story before.

I think I was in a country in East Africa we were going to dedicate the church of the Bishop of another ministry.

And because of the traffic they gave me out riders, policeman to ride ahead.

And as we were going, this policeman, young man, rode across to the junction to stop the traffic to pass

But all of a sudden, whether the driver could not control himself or whatever, a car came and just crushed him, flown from the motorcycle; the motorcycle itself was a write-off.

I am sure before the boy hit the ground he was dead.

Oh God!

I said, Lord, but he is with me!

He is with me; he is part of my thought.

If it were my own programme I would have cancel the programme but it was another man programme.

So I went for the programme; in the mean time they carry the lifeless body away to the hospital.

After we finished the programme, as we came back home I was asking people this young man: is he married? has he children?

What can we do to help him; because he died because of us?

And they said they will find out.

And the news came back.

They took him to the hospital dead but within minutes he came back to life.

No bones broken; no scratches; and I saw a car run over him at high speed.

Stand on your feet, lift your hands to the Almighty God and say: Father, Lord of host, abide with me.

Open your mouth and cry.

Lord of host, abide with me, abide with me; Lord of host, come and abide with me; I know if You abide with me, Your own heavenly security guard will abide with me and with mine; You will keep me save, You will keep mine save, come and abide with me. Come and abide with me Lord; come and abide with me; come and abide with me; come and abide with me; come and abide with me; come and abide, come and abide, come and abide with me. Lord of host please come and abide with me; come and abide with me; Lord of host, come and abide with me; come and abide with me; come and abide, come and abide with me; come and abide with me; I need You Lord, I need You in my life, I need You in my home, come and abide with me; particularly at this dangerous times Lord come and abide with me; come and abide with me; Lord of host, come and abide with me. O thank You Father. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

If Christ is dwelling in you, what does that mean?

It means you have resident Life in you.

Because He said in John 11 verse 25…

Thank You Father.

The Lord said there is someone who came here tonight with tremendous heat inside your body; He said may be you did not notice but the heat it is gone.

Thank You Father.

The Lord said there is a woman here, He said according to Doctors your womb is totally dead, He asked me to tell you, He has given your womb a new life.

O thank You Almighty

Daddy asks me to tell someone, in spite of rugged resistance from your family members, you will be great.

 Let them resist as much as they like, you will be great.

John 11:25: Jesus Christ said, I AM the Resurrection and the Life.

So, if the One who is Resurrection and the Life is dwelling in you, if death comes knocking, you will just tell the Resurrection and the Life to go and open the door;

And when He opens the door and death sees Him and says Oh I don’t know you live here

O yes, this is where I reside.

Death will back off.

In 1Kings chapter 17 verse 17 to 24, in the story of the widow of Zarephath, when death came to steal her son, she handed the matter over to Elijah

Because she knew Elijah has connection with the One who is called Resurrection and the Life.

And of course you know the end result; the child came back to life.  

In 2Kings chapter verse 18 to 37, in the story of the Shunammite woman when her son, the only miracle son died, they sent Elisha and he came and of course the child came back to life.

But in the case of Jesus dwelling in you, they won’t have to send for Him, He is already inside.

In the case of Lazarus they sent for Him, He said, I am still busy, I will come.

But if He is dwelling, dwelling, dwelling with you, if He is inside of you when death comes, death has no option, death has to leave you.

I decree today that every of one of you that they say will die, you will not die; you will live and do the work of God.

You remember the story of that young man when they held festac in Abuja several years ago and on their journey back they had an accident and several people died.

This fellow did not die but he was unconscious and they carried him to the hospital and he was in coma for several days.

They could not bury him because he was still breathing but he was here at all, he was far gone.

But once in a while, he will seem to come up and when he opens his mouth one word will come out: Jesus.

Then, he lapse again and he may be gone for two days, three days;

And then he seems to come up again and say Jesus.

They could not bury him because he was still breathing

You cannot bury a man who is breathing.

That went on for weeks until one day he came up again and said Jesus and opened his eyes

Because the Resurrection and the Life was in him when death came, death could not take him.

Stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, the Resurrection and the Life, come and dwell in me.

Come and dwell in me, come and dwell in me; make my heart Your throne, make my heart Your throne, come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me; You the Resurrection and the Life, come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me; just come and dwell in me, make my heart Your throne; make Your throne in my heart, seat down there, reign in me, reign in me, reign, come and reign in me, come and reign in my heart so that I won’t have to fear death because I know the Resurrection and the Life is dwelling in me, come and reign in me; come and reign in me; come and reign in me. Thank You Father. Come and reign in me, so that wherever I go I know there is life, God life, the Resurrection and the Life Himself is dwelling in me, seated on His throne in my heart. Come and reign in me. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

If Christ is living in you, if the Greater One is dwelling in you, what does it mean?

It means you have a resident faith – the faith that is kind God’s faith.

Because Hebrew chapter 12 verse 2 says He is the Author and Finisher of our faith - The Author and Finisher of our faith

If the Author and Finisher of faith is dwelling in you, suddenly you have the kind of faith that is beyond the ordinary.

And according to Mark chapter 9 verse 23, suddenly you will find yourself in same categories as God Himself - the category of the Almighty

Because Jesus Christ said, if you have faith, all things are possible to him that believes.

If you have faith

In Mark in 11 verse 22 to 23, He says if you have the kind of faith that God has then you can say to mountains move and mountains will obey.

You need that kind of faith;

I need that kind of faith;

The kind of faith that everybody will say your own faith is different.

I have people say it before and I am sure very soon they will be saying it of you also, the faith that we cause God to move, the faith that will activate, that will compel God to do something for you.

Several years ago when I first became General Overseer, I was visiting our little churches here in Lagos

And I was visiting two/three churches in a day.

So I got to Alagbado first, finish there and moved down to somewhere else.

A woman came after we left and say I heard that there is going to be programme that is why I have come.

They said, they have come and gone

And she began to roll on the ground weeping.

Woman, why? What is the problem?

She said I told God, I am not asking the man of God to pray for me, I just want to set my eyes on him.

I told God if I can just see him at a distance, I know I will be pregnant.

Oh! They said we heard an announcement that tomorrow he is going to be at such and such a place.

She said, is that true?

They said, yes.

She said wonderful.

Before the church open the following day she was there

And then we came in; all of us were dressed alike

She did not know who is who

But she knew sooner or later they will introduce the man who is going to preach.

As soon as they introduced us, I step on the pulpit

She said, haa, I have seen him, my problem is solved.

That month she became pregnant.

Stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God and say: Father, that kind of faith that can move mountains, let it dwell in me.

Let it dwell in me; let it dwell in me, that kind of faith that does not the need prayer of anybody; that kind of faith that will get miracles done without anybody interfering; that kind of faith that will move mountains, God let it dwell in me; let it dwell in me; let it dwell in me. the kind of faith Lord that can get result every time; that kind of faith that will make the impossible possible; that kind of faith that will put me on the same category as the Almighty Himself, let that faith come and dwell in me, dwell in me, dwell in me richly, I need that kind of faith; I need that kind of faith; I need that kind of faith. You are the Author and Finisher of faith, come and dwell in me and that faith will be mine; come and dwell in me and I will have that faith that can move mountains; Lord, come and dwell in me. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

And so, if Christ is dwelling in you, that means you have in you resident peace.

Why?

Because according to Isaiah chapter 9 verse 6: …

Thank You Father.

The Lord asks me to tell someone, you are down today but not only will you bounce back, you will bounce higher.

The Lord asks me to tell a pregnant woman, He said just now the baby in your womb jumped, He asked me to tell you it is because he is going be servant.

So take good care of that baby.

I want to say amen to this before I tell you.

Because the Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said, I will yet use you to shake the world for Jesus.

Isaiah chapter 9 verse 6 calls Jesus Christ the Prince of peace.

So, if He is dwelling in you, you have peace; the kind of peace that Bible says passes all understanding.

Philippians 4:7 says there is peace of God that passes all understanding, it comes through Christ Jesus.

It is the kind of peace that allows you to sleep even when there is a storm.

Mark chapter 4 verse 35 to 41, Jesus was sleeping in a boat and there was a storm;

Everybody else was worrying but He was enjoying His peace.

People have asked me, how have you been able to have a normal blood pressure all this years with all your children, with all the parishes and branches of Redeemed Christian Church of God all over the world?

It is because the Prince of peace is in me.

It does not matter what is happening, I sleep fine.

I have never lost my sleep over any problem.

In any case, weeping may endure for a night, joy is coming in the morning.

Peace

I told you the story before:

I was travelling to London;

We got Heathrow, we are fasten our seat belts

Beloveth, Nigeria Airways of Blessed Memory, when the Captain said, Ladies and Gentlemen we have a little problem 

What is the little problem?

The door in the belly of the plane refused to open that means the landing gear cannot come out.

And when you have problem in an Aero plane in the air, there is nowhere to park.

All of a sudden there was confusion.

I was travelling first class because somebody bought the ticket for me.

That day I knew that rich people don’t want to die.

All those who have been pretending that butter cannot melt in their mouth; all those of have been laughing; laughing in a very special way

All of a sudden they began to scream.

I still remember one woman who said, haa, olorun o, I am going to take care of my grandchildren

Nobody ask her.

And there was one man since we left Ikeja, he had this golden walking stick, the head has diamond on it; he has been getting up pretending to go to the toilet just to show us the walking stick.

But this time, he really wanted to go to the toilet.

He got up and the hostess said, seat down sir.

He said, who said so?

Now, I will tell you the truth, even myself I was frightened and I said God, You did not tell me this how this thing will end.

When I was saying bye-bye to my son at Ikeja, You did not say that is the end

And God spoke to me and said, no, it is not the end; I want to talk to you.

And I know that as soon as you land in London they won’t let us talk.

Oh, is that so?

Suddenly, peace came.

I pray for somebody here today, the peace of God that passes all understand shall invade your heart.

And Daddy began to talk to me: do this, do that; this is the way I want this done…

And in the mean time the plane was going round in circles because they could not open the door.

And when the noise became more, the Captain added petrol to the fire, maybe he did not realize that.

He said, why are you so agitated?

After all, the fire fighters at Heathrow are very efficient.

Haaa! Fire fighters!

You mean we are going to burn!

In the mean time why everybody was screaming, I was cool because the Greater One is dwelling me.

And after we finished talking, the door opened and we landed very safely.

I want you to stand on your feet and cry to Almighty God and say: Prince of peace, come and dwell in me.

Come and dwell in me; stay put, stay put in my heart. Prince of peace stay put in my heart; come and dwell in me, come and stay put, come and stay put, let me have the peace, the peace of God that passes all understanding; come and dwell in me Lord; Prince of peace, come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me. Thank You my Father. Come and dwell in me. Prince of peace, come and dwell, come and dwell, come and dwell in me so that for the rest of my life I will have peace; whatever may be happening I just want to have peace; come and dwell in me Lord; come and dwell in me; come and dwell in me so that I will have peace, so that I will have peace; O Lord come and dwell in me; come and dwell with me. Prince of peace, come and make Your abode with me, stay put in my heart, stay put in my heart. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

I want to close because I still have other things ahead for tonight.

Thank You Father

You know, occasionally like this I hear a song and when I hear a song I know somebody is about to sing that song

And the song that I am hearing now is:

I have joy like a river

Joy like a river

Joy like a river in my soul

I have joy like a river

Joy like a river

Joy like a river in my soul

Who is the one who will sing that song very soon?

If you are the one let me hear you shout hallelujah.

As long as the Greater One is in you, you are stronger than your enemies.

As long as He is dwelling in you, let them try all they can, they are the one who will get tired not you.

I have said it, the Holy Spirit is like air.

You know, when the Bible say Christ in you the hope and it says I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me like I discuss with you at the Holy Communion last night.

The Holy Spirit is just like an ordinary air: You cannot see it, you cannot hold it.

But as long as is in a football, twenty-two people will kick that ball from morning till evening, it is those kicking the ball that will get tired not the ball.

I have given the example of an aero plane; I don’t want to teach you Mathematics, not tonight.

But the aero plane queue seven four seven for example, carrying more than five hundred people with their lodges and everything

Come seem to land at a terrific speed; speed close to three hundred kilometers per hour, at times more.

Mathematically, scientifically speaking, the impact of that thing on the ground is enormous.

But the tyres because of the air in them, would take that tremendous impact and say to the plane, is that all you can do.

The plane keeps landing days after days, months after months, years after years as long as there is air in the tyres they will keep on saying try harder.

As long as the Greater One is in you, you can tell all your enemies, do your worst because I will overcome.

How many overcomers are here tonight?

Let me hear you shout hallelujah.

So, I am going to give you fifteen minutes to pray and your prayer this time will be with confidence.

If you want to come to the altar you are welcome.

You are going to just cry to the Almighty God: dwell in me; dwell in my family; dwell in my business; if You can just come and dwell, all these problems will be over. It does not matter what the enemy may be trying, you will overcome.

Go to Him and just talk to Him. Tell Him all your problems; tell Him the One that He is the All sufficient God, just dwell in me so that I will overcome anything that the enemy may throw at me.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

Tell Him, come and dwell in me then I will overcome sickness, I will overcome disease, I will overcome fear, I will overcome mountains, I will overcome anything that the enemy may throw at me; just dwell in me Lord, dwell in me.

Thank You Father.

Hallelujah Father.

Thank You Jesus.

Let us begin to bring our prayer to a close.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

The All sufficient God will grant your requests; He will dwell in your heart; He will dwell in your marriages; He will dwell in your homes; He will dwell in your families; He will dwell in your churches; He will dwell in your offices; and the strength that comes from within, that strength only God living in you can give, He will release to you today. You will overcome. Every attack of the enemies will bounce back to sender. All those who want you died, you will bury them; all those who want to keep you down, you will be higher than they. Your victory will be total; your joy will overflow; you will have joy like a river; you will have peace like a river. That kind of faith that can get anything from God, God will give you today. It shall be well with you and you will serve God till the end.

So shall it be.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.
