Thank you for giving them a new beginning please on their behalf accept our thanks in Jesus name.

April is the fourth month of the year, Father for these your children, from the four corners of the world, send help to them; from the east send help to them, from the west send help to them, from the north send help to them, from the south send help to them and even from heaven above send help to them, give them a new beginning of joy, a new beginning of success of power and let them begin to shine like never before and let them serve you till the end.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

April children shout another halleluiah!

By the grace of God, next month if Jesus tarries, we would have a special Holy Ghost service: under the theme: OPERATING UNDER DIVINE FAVOUR. And am sure the workers know they have a brief meeting after the Holy Ghost service next month.

Tonight we want to talk about the RISING STARS. Whenever God gives a theme, it is a word of prophecy and so I believe that those who are here tonight; number one you will be stars. Number two you will begin to rise. Now I am not talking to everybody actually, I am talking to somebody. There is somebody here tonight who will be a star, there will be somebody here tonight who will begin to rise.

Rising Star.  In English, two words; Star and Rising. Now who is a star? A star in the simplest language is someone who excels.

And am starting tonight by decreeing to someone here; from now on you will continue to excel.

For example; David excelled in Music in 1 Samuel 16 v 15 -18 when the king needed a musician, somebody told him, we know someone who is a star in music and his name was David, he was a star in music.

Because we are dealing with children tonight we will move a little fast, because we could show you that a Elisha was a star in sport, Daniel was a star in administration, Solomon was a star in wisdom, Moses was a star in meekness, the daughter of Job were stars in beauty. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were stars in commitment to God.  Elizabeth the mother of John the Baptist was a star in purity. Paul the apostle was a star in Anointing. David was a star in gratitude to God.

I pray for someone here tonight; in every facet of your life, you will become a star.

Then what do we mean by rising? It simply means going higher, increasing in success, increasing in brilliance, increasing in skills and increasing in ability. When we talk of going higher, you read Genesis 26 v 12-14 the Bible showed us a man called Isaac, Bible said he waxed great and then went forward and then increasing, that is an example.

He kept on going higher and higher. In Genesis 40 v 43 the Bible tells us about Jacob, how he increased exceedingly and then we can give you several other examples but because of time, we all know that when we say something is rising, it means it is getting better, it’s shining brighter, it’s becoming more and more known.

 In the name that is above every other name, you will keep on rising, you will be rising in joy, you will be rising in success, you will be rising in power, you will be rising in anointing, you will be rising in glory.

Now when we therefore talk about RISING STAR, it means someone is already a star and now the star is becoming bigger and brighter. I know some of you may not believe it if I say you are already a star, but the word of God said it; that God calls things that be not as though they were.

And every one who is my child here tonight, you are already a star and your star will be getting bigger, it will be getting brighter in the Mighty name of Jesus.

Now we could find several examples in the Bible, we find a young man called Philip in Act 6 v 1-6

Thank you Father! The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he ask me to tell you; stop being afraid, because the destroyer will not visit your family again.

So there is this young man called Philip in Act 6 v 1-6 he started as a deacon; to become a deacon, he was already a star; people have sought him out and they found him to be a man of good report; full of holy spirit and faith and then they make him a deacon, very soon he became an evangelist, he kept on rising and rising.

In the name that is above every other name, by the time I see you again next month; you will be higher than where you are now in Jesus name.

Now how do I become a star?

There are various ways of becoming a star, one of the ways is to be created a star. Genesis 1 v 16 tells us that God made the stars also, in Jeremiah 1 v 4-5 God told Jeremiah, even before I formed thee I knew thee, while you were yet in your mother’s womb, I have already sanctify you, I have already set you aside to myself, I have already anointed you a prophet to nations.

There are some stars that are stars even from the womb. In Luke 1 v 13 -17 even before John the Baptist was born, it has already been prophesied that he will be great.  Some people are created stars. 

Then some people are born as stars; the son of a king is called the prince, from day number one the day a prince is born; he is born a star; if it’s a girl we call her a princess.

 In Genesis 12 v 1-3 God told Abraham that through his seed all the nations of the world will be blessed. So those children who are even yet to be born had already been made a blessing by God, so when the children of Abraham began to arrive they had no option but to shine.

The son of a star is a star.

The son of a goat cannot be a dog. One of my sons said the day the son of an elephant is born, that day the son of elephant is already bigger than the son of a cow. The son of an elephant cannot be like the son of a cat.

By the special grace of God I am a star and so all my Children are stars. If you are one of my children shout halleluiah!

Then some people are made a star, some people are promoted to become a star for example Deuteronomy 34 v 9 tells us that Joshua was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses laid his hands on him.

The reason Joshua became a star is because Moses laid his hands on him, that is why tonight as we lay hands on all out children, even if they were not starts before they will become a star.

Thank you father, The Lord said there is someone here tonight, He said your parents are insignificant, he said but you are going to be great.

The Almighty God said there is someone here tonight, He said the only thing that has been increasing in your life is poverty he said but from tonight the tide will turn.

The Lord said there is a child here tonight that all you have ever been is just average, He said but from today you will become brilliant.

1 Samuel 16 v 1-13 we see the story of David he was in the bush, he was not loved, he was not appreciated, his father did not even count him worthy of anything, but the Almighty God took him from behind and turned him to a star.

I am praying for someone here tonight, even where you are not yet known, the Almighty God will pick you up and turn you to a star.

Thank you father, the Lord says there is a woman here tonight, he asked me to tell you, he asked me to you not to worry, he said next year you will bring your own children.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said all the weapons of all your enemies are already render useless.

Some people are created a star, some are born a star, some are made a star and some people achieved stardom. Somebody like Daniel, he was taken into slavery but because the Almighty God was with him and he himself stayed with God; little by little, step by step, he became one of the three in the entire kingdom. According to Daniel 6 v 1-3 he was a slave at the beginning but at the end he was one of the best three, one of the ruling three in the entire kingdom.

I am prophesying to my children here tonight; out of you shall come president, out of you shall come great rulers, out of you shall come managing directors. In the name of Jesus you will reach the top.

And so when we look at the greatest example we have; that is Jesus Christ himself you will see he was born a star, he was called the bright and morning star and he was made a star. Matthew 28 v 18 He said all power in heaven and on earth has been giving unto me.

And then of course He achieved stardom according to Philippians 2 v 5 – 11 the Bible tells us because of the sacrifice that he made on a good Friday like a day like today, because of the sacrifice He made, He ended up with a name that is above every other names.

So that at the name of Jesus, every kneel should bow.

And I am saying that in name of Jesus every problem in your life will bow today.

Now, how do I rise?

I am already a star, whether I was created a star or I was born a star, or was made a star, or I achieved stardom. The question now is how do I get my star to keep on rising? That is the crucial thing we want to discuss very briefly tonight.

Rising is a principally in God’s hands. Psalm 75v 6-7 tells us that promotion does not come from the east or from the west, or from the north and it doesn’t come from the south. It says God is the judge, He raises up one and he pulls down another.

The Almighty God will raise you up.

 In 1 Samuel 2 v 7-8 the Bible tells us that it is God who can make rich or make poor, He is the one who raises up and He is the one who pulls down, He is the one who can take the beggar from the dunghill and begin to raise them up until they begin to seat with princes.

And I decree in the name that is above every other name that from this moment, you will only be going higher, you will never go lower in Jesus name.

 Deuteronomy 33v 27 tells us that the hands of God  are always underneath, he said underneath are the everlasting hands, no matter how low you are now, the hand of God is already underneath you , and so all God need to do now is to lift you up.

That is why I am rejoicing with you, you will never go lower than where you are now.

 So God is the one who controls rising, however you can influence your own rising, there are things you can do that will enable you to rise very fast because Hebrew 11 v 6 says God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him; he decides who goes up, he decides those who goes down but if he is going to reward me, he cannot reward me with down grading me, he can only reward me by promoting me and he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.

And He also says in his word in Proverbs 8 v 17 He said I love those who love Me and those who seek Me early shall find Me.

If I love Him, He will love me, if I seek Him early I will find Him and if I seek Him diligently He will reward me. James 4 v 8 says if I draw near to GOD, God will draw near to me.

I can influence my rising; if I love God, he will love me, if I draw near Him, He will draw near me, if I seek Him diligently He will reward me. Even though He is the Almighty, He is a God of principles. He follows his principles in all His actions. If I do what I should do, He will lift me up.

Thank you Lord the Lord says there is someone here tonight he said the evil cloud over your family has been rolled away.

The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said I will not help you alone I will help your children also.

This one is for those of us, who are student;

The Lord said there is some one here tonight; he said I will enlarge your mental capacity greatly.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight he said before the end of this month expect another major testimony.

The Lord said there is a family here that has become used to frequent tragedies, the Lord asked me to tell you from now on you will become use to frequent joy.

In Proverb 3 v 9-10 the Bible made it clear if you put God first, if you honor Him with your increase, with your substance and you honor him with your first fruit he said he will respond in such a manner that people will noticed that you are becoming excessively prosperous, you will begin to shine financially.

He says in Malachi 3 v 8-10, He said those who rob Him of His tithe He will curse, He said but those who bring all the tithe to His house, they will shine financially, that is what is say, once you know what to do, do it and leave the rest to God.

He said if you take this step this is what I will do, then take the step and see what He will do. But when He says take this step this is what I will do and then you do contrary to what He says, how can you expect you will continue to rise.

You can influence the rising of your own stars. And then you can influence the rising of your own children.

Thank You Lord, the Lord says  there is someone here tonight he ask me to tell you, he says I specialize in making something out of nothing., he said I will make you great.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said I have surprise you before, I am now about to astonish you.

Proverb 22 v 6 says train up a child in the way he should grow when he is old he won’t be able to depart from it. The training you give your children will determine how they will end.

Many parents have destroyed the future of the children because they didn’t give them the right training at the beginning.

Some ladies find it difficult to settle down in their husband’s home because their mothers didn’t teach them even how to cook.  The mother didn’t teach them how to behave when they get to their husband’s house and so the future was even destroyed before they left home.

Train your child the way to go; when he gets to the top he won’t be able to depart. When we talk about training the children, God said in Deuteronomy 11 v 18-19 He said what you talk to your children about when you are in the home with them; is what will determine how God will respond to them.

In other word, when your children are sitting down at home playing with you, what is the kind of discussion they are listening to? God says when you are talking to your children, you are suppose to be telling them about God, the word of God, whatever you tell your children is going to determine what their future will be.

One of the major problems some men of God have had in the past is that in the church they say something, at home they say something different, so the children becomes confused and they begin to wonder; so at the end of the day they don’t even want to have anything to do with the church.

You can influence what happens to your children, and all of us who have failed our children up till this moment, may the Almighty God forgive us in Jesus name.

 May the Almighty God give us the grace to repent immediately our ways in Jesus name. May the Almighty God give us the grace to restitute our ways in Jesus name.

As for you children, you can influence your own rising too Proverb 22 v 29 the Bible says seeth thou a man diligent in his business, he will stand before kings and not before mean men. No matter how young you are if you are ready to work hard; God is ready to promote you.

God is not going to promote somebody who is lazy.

The fact that you are born a prince does not mean you will become a king. They say there is no royal road to success. The elders will tell you; princes have become slaves before because they fail to work.

Children listen to me, “many of you are spending too much time watching television, you are spending too much time playing games, you must learn to work, the world is not a bed of roses, there is a lot of struggling going on and those who will work hard will make it to the top. If your parents are the type that will push you, glory be to God”.

My mother used to push me, thank God for my mother, of cause thank God for my father he loved me but he was always in the farm.  When other children are playing outside, my mother will ask me to seat down and study my books, and I will tell her other people are enjoying.

My mother will tell me other people children are not my business. You, you are my business, and you must do what I tell you. I thank God for her, she pushed me and thank God I allowed myself to be pushed. You children because your stars will begin to rise, you better seat up and begin to work hard.

There are many of you in the schools and the colleges and you are not studying hard and you think you can pass by bribing somebody. That can only take you far to a certain level. There is one thing that will take you to the top in life; hard work. See a man diligent in his business; he will stand before kings not before mean men. Hard work in everything that you do.

I have said it before there are some Christians who are believing God for breakthrough but they are lazy, let me tell you the truth; no breakthrough is coming for a lazy person, because God knows if he gives you the breakthrough, out of your laziness it will slip out of your hands.

I have seen so many Christians; bricklayers, carpenters, other trades; if they have been hard working on this camp ground alone, they will have become a multi billionaire by now.

 But you give them a job to do; 10 am they are still eating breakfast they haven’t started work at all. I start my own day by 5 am, only God knows when I close. They will begin their work by after 10am they want to close by 4pm. Such people when they get one job they never get another.

 I am praying for all of you who are listening to me because you are my children, you are stars, you are going to rise but you must work hard.

Seeth thou a man diligent in his business! Tell your neighbor “stop being lazy and your star will begin to rise”.

The second thing you can do children so that your star can rise fast is that you must obtain the blessings of your parents; the Bible says honor thy mother and thy  father that your days may be long.

When you honor your parents they will bless you and the blessing of your parents will take you far. I have said it again and again, I am where I am today; by the grace of God and by the blessings of my mother.

 Anytime I please my mother, anytime I did something for her that makes her happy, she will pronounce blessing on me. One blessing in particular that I didn’t understand then; is “son, because you have done this; you will call one fellow two hundred will answer you”. I didn’t understand what that one means, but today by the grace of God if I call one pastor and I didn’t mention the particular name, even in this place where we are, if I say pastor come, they will be more than two hundred who will come.

 I am pronouncing the same blessing on all my children, you will call one fellow one thousand will answer you.

Honor your father and your mother that your days may be long that they may bless you and that your star may continue to rise.

Let me say one more thing to you parents, you parents cannot be a star if you are in sin; you cannot be covered in sin and shine and if the parents are not a star, how can the children be a star?

If you are living in sin, you are an enemy of God, how can you be an enemy of God and expect God to cause you to rise? How can God promote you when you are doing things contrary to his will? The bible says you cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound.

Parents listen to me, those of you who for one reason or the other don’t want to surrender your life to Jesus, for the sake of your children, surrender your life to Jesus.

If you have made up your own mind that you want to live the rest of your life suffering, if you have made up your mind that you want to go to hell, please think of your children, consider your children, because if you are not a friend of God it is difficult for blessing of God to come upon your children.

The elders have a saying that it is the one who is mother is loved, is the one that we would appreciate the child. If you are an enemy of God, God cannot love your children, so I am talking to those parents who are here tonight; if for no other reason, because of your children, give your life to Jesus, become a friend of God. When you become a friend of God, then God will become a friend of your children.

 As for you children, nobody is ever too young to surrender to Jesus, you can surrender your life to him today and he will turn you into a star. So those of you who want to give your life to Jesus whether parent or their children, you can come now

... And as you come; talk to Jesus Christ, ask him to be merciful unto you, ask him to save your soul, tell him to write your name in the book of life, ask Him to save your soul, tell Him you want to shine for Him, ask Him to wash you clean in His blood, that from now on you will do His will. Talk to Jesus Christ now!

The rest of us let’s stretch our hands towards these people and intercede for them; That the Lord Almighty will save their souls, That God will be merciful unto everyone of them, that their salvation will be genuine, that the  Almighty God will wash away all their sins in his blood, let’s pray for the salvation of these people.

And those of you who are still on the way keep coming, the Almighty God is calling you and he is waiting to save your soul…

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Savior we bless your name, we give you all glory, we give you all honor, for all these your children who have come forward today, you promise that whosoever come unto you, you will in no wise cast out, these your children have come now, please receive them in Jesus name.

On this particular Good Friday this day when we are remembering when you shed your blood on the cross, wash away all the sins of these people in Jesus name.

 Write their names in the book of life and give them the grace to serve you for the rest of their lives and from this moment onward, anytime they call on you please answer them in Jesus name. Thank you Almighty.

In Jesus name we have prayed.. in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Now I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight because from tonight forward by the grace of God I will be praying for you, very soon you will be receiving miracles that there must be somebody praying for you, so I am going to need your name, your address, and your prayer request, the counselor are around you, they will give you a card to fill, fill the card very quickly and then submit back to them.

The rest of us while we are waiting for these people we can begin to talk to God, ask him for forgiveness, if you have failed your children in any way whatsoever and give you grace to fulfill your role as a parent onward. And if you have been doing your duty correctly; in a night like this, you should be thanking the Almighty that he has made you a very good parents, and many of us needs to thank God tonight, for the kind of parent God gave us, parents that helped us to become what we have become. So let’s spend some minute talking to the Lord.



1.    Praise God that we have this opportunity, that we and our children can come for these special anointing.

2.    Father, in all that I do from now on, let me excel.

3.    Father, promotions comes from you, please promote me this year.

4.    Father, as my children grow in age; let them grow in Wisdom and in the knowledge of God.

5.    Father, let my children be head and not tail. Above and never beneath.

6.    Father, as for me and my children, let us keep rising forever.

7.    Father, don’t let anyone or anything truncate the destinies of myself or my children.


I implore you to pray with all your heart, it’s only for 20 minutes.

In that Name that is above every other name from this moment onward everything you do will succeed.

In every area of your life you will continue to excel, because God is the great promoter He will promote you. And as our children grow in age, they will also grow in wisdom, they will grow in the knowledge of God, all of them will be head they will never be tail.

They will never be servant to their colleagues, they will be above they will never be beneath.

All of us children and parent alike we will keep on rising, nobody will truncate our destiny, we will all keep on rising, it will be well all of us, our joy will always over flow.

And in the Name that is above every other names, from now on you will keep on shining.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Let’s wave our hands to the Almighty God and shout another halleluiah
