Thank You Father! Let me hear somebody shout a really big Hallelujah – HALLELUJAH!

….Let someone shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!
How about shaking hands with two (2) or three (3) people; say: Your Excellency, “God bless you”.
And then you may please be seated.
I want to thank the Almighty God for ALL those who have ministered tonight; they all did excellently well. The various Choirs are good! The Preachers, wonderful! Everyone of them; they did very well.
… Daddy took time to go through major points raised by each of the four (4) Preachers.
Why don’t you give the Lord a Mighty, Mighty round of applause for these wonderful children. This is why I look forward to a time when these young men – the Youths and Young Adults will be preaching. Because it’s going to be like Bible School within a day. They give you so much to bite; so .such to digest; so much to meditate upon.
Please join me one more time to give the Lord a big round of applause for these wonderful children.
Thank you! Your turn will come. I say your turn will come. You will be the next one to preach from this Altar, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
Normally, my assignment on the Eve (of the Special Holy Ghost Service) is always to come, go over what these people have said, and then pray.
But a couple of weeks ago, in one of our Youth Churches, I shared some words with my Young Ones. And since it was Sunday Morning, you were all in your Churches. It’s most likely that even though Dove Media carried it, you missed the Message (the Message was documented by the Discovery Media Crew).
And as I was praying concerning tonight; God impressed upon my mind that, that Message should go round. So for the next few minutes (because it was a very short Sermon) I want to share with you from ISAIAH 60:1-3
1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
If you are the one God is talking to, let me hear your Amen – Amen!
According to John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.”
Darkness has three (3) principal assignments and Light has three (3) principal assignments.
John 10:10 says the thief (darkness) cometh not but to STEAL, KILL and to DESTROY. These are the three (3) Assignments of darkness
But Jesus Christ said: “I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.”
The assignments of Light is to reverse what the darkness has done. Darkness comes to steal but Light comes to RESTORE.
Mark 5: 25-34; The devil attacked the woman with the issue of blood, stole her health, destroyed her fortunes and wanted to kill her completely.
But the woman came in contact with Jesus Christ and there was Total Restoration.
The devil comes to kill but the Light comes to Resurrect.
In Mark 5:35-43; the devil came to the home of Jairus, killed his only daughter, Jesus came to the same home and brought the girl back to life.
The devil’s job is to destroy while the work of the Light is to RECREATE.
2 Corrithians 5:17 says: “Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
At Recreation, old things are passed away and behold old things had become New.
Now, “where do I come in into this?” You may ask.
The One who is the Light of the world has called us The Light.
Matthew 5:14-16 says:
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
… Jesus Christ said ‘you are the Light of the World’.
In case you haven’t told anyone in recent time, why can’t you turn to the fellow on your right and left and say: “I am the Light of the world”.
If He says you are the Light of the world, then it means that the assignment He has given to the Light is also given to you. Because the Light of the world Himself said in John 14:12 that: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
He said that the works that He did you shall do also. Meaning what?
It’s your job, your assignment to Restore. The devil has come to steal, it is your duty to Restore.
Mark 16:17-18 says: “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
He made it clear; these signs shall follow them that believe, in my Name they would even lay hands on the sick and they shall be heal.
Acts 9:32-34 says: “And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all [quarters], he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda. And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy. And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately.”
Peter did exactly that in the life of Aeneas. God has healed him and immediately the man got up from his sick bed.
Your duty is to Restore.
Your duty is to Resurrect. In order words, when you find anyone who is already dead, your duty is to bring them back to life.
In Acts 9: 36-42, the same Peter followed the example of our Lord Jesus Christ by bringing Dorcas back to life. His your duty as Light was to Resurrect.
It is your duty to Recreate.
How can I Recreate?
Very simple, you bring people to the One who can give them Brand New Beginning.
John 15:16 says: “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”
He said, you have not chosen me, I have chosen you that you will go and bring forth fruit and that your will abide. Read – Open Heaven 3 March 2019
When you win souls, you are recreating, you are changing a sinners to a Saints. You are bringing out of hell somebody the devil has completely destroyed and bringing them into the kingdom of God.
So you have an assignment as the Light to do the works that the Light did; Restore, Resurrect and Recreate.
If you believe that by the Grace of God, you will begin to do all these things from now on, let me hear you say Amen – Amen!
Then comes the question, when am I to begin doing these things? When is my Light supposed to begin to Shine? Because from the text that we read, ARISE, SHINE Why? Your Light has COME!
When will I begin to heal the sick?
May be I should put the question this way: When are you suppose to be healing the sick?
You can’t even answer – ‘NOW’!
You are not sure – ‘NOW’!
I got a text message after the Sermon from somebody, I don’t know which of my children. He said; daddy, teach us how to heal the sick. I said, it doesn’t need any teaching. It’s a very simple matter. “These Signs shall follow them that believe”.
The first question you should ask yourself is: Do I believe in Jesus?
Let me ask you the question: Do you believe in Jesus?
Do you believe He is the TRUTH? Do you believe He will never LIE?
… Once you you believed, then you are qualified for stage one.
Then the next thing He ask you to do is to LAY HANDS on the SICK.
And the question now is: If I lay hands on them and they don’t get well, what happens?
Who told you they wouldn’t get well?
The only fellow who can say if you lay hands on the sick they may not recover is the devil because Jesus said: ‘You shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover’.
So, whom are you going to believe now? Is it Jesus or the devil?
JESUS! I can’t hear you – JESUS!
Then somebody asked me once; daddy are you saying that everyone you lay hands on get well? Do they all recovered?
I said no. If I lay hands on one (1) and he doesn’t recover, I go to the other, I lay hands on the second, then I go to the third, I lay hands on the forth.
Then I decided to shared with somebody who was very close to me who was a beginner in laying hands on the sick. I said, you know what, when I was younger, I prayed a prayer, God I saw from the story at the Pool of Bethesda that there were many sick people there, You healed only one (1) person. Please Lord, the only sick people You will send to me are those whom you want to heal.
Childish prayer is it?
The Lord met me at my level of Faith. He brought to me only those He wanted to heal.
The moment I saw any sick fellow coming; I knew this one, God already wants to heal. He just wants to use me as a camouflage.
But latter on as I grew, I changed my prayer, just bring them all – anyone who is sick, bring them. I will lay my hands in Your Mighty Name and I know they will recover.
How many of you believed that from now on when you lay hands in the Name of Jesus they would recover? – MOSES/TITILAYOMI/OLUSOLA
If you believe, let me hear you say Amen loud and clear – Amen!
So, I want to give you an assignment that is probably why God wants me to share this with you. It is that even between today and tomorrow, look for sick people and lay your hands on them and let us see how many Testimonies we would get tomorrow. Because my God is going to surprise you from now.
… If you really believe, your Amen should have been loud – Amen!
But the conclusion of the matter is just like all the boys who spoke before me had said; “you cannot Swim in Glory if you have not made contact with the King of Glory.”
STEP 1: To Swim in Glory is that you must become Associated with the King of Glory Himself.
That is why even tonight in case there is anyone who is yet to be Associated with the King of Glory. If there is anyone who is yet to surrender his or her life to Jesus, you should come forward now. Come quickly, He can save your soul now and did you know what, you can even be laying hands on the sick for them to recover from this moment onward.
So, if you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, no matter how few you are in number, I will wait for you and I will count from one (1) to five (5). You come, you surrender your life to Him and I pray for your Salvation and a New Beginning – a Brand New Beginning will come into your life.
So if you want to give your life to Jesus, you want to be associated with the King of Glory, so that one day you too will begin to Swim in Glory. Come now as I count….
Who told you that God can’t turn you to a Vessel unto Honour?
The Bible says, taste and see, the Lord is good. Come and surrender your life to Him. He can turn you to someone who will even heal the sick, raise the dead; doing the Works that He did.
So if you are coming, you have to hurry up so that I can pray for you.
This is just the EVE of the Special Holy Ghost Service and we want the people to be able to leave on time. Come quickly, Thank You Father!
Now, those of you who have come, talk to Almighty God and ask Him to save your souls, tell Him to wash away your sins, promise Him that from now on, you will be serving Him, tell Him to be your Lord and Saviour. Talk to Him and ask for the Salvation of Your soul.
The rest of us, let’s stretch our hands towards these people and pray for them that the One who saved our souls will save their own souls too. That God will recreate them and make them brand New Creatures in Him.
Those of you on the way, hurry up because I want to pray now. The rest of us, in another one (1) minute or two (2) pray that the Saviour who saved your soul will saves their souls also.
Thank You Father, in Jesus Mighty Name we Prayed – Amen!
PRAYER OF SALVATION: Savour we want to say Thank You for Your Words, Thank You for all Your children who have already spoken before us. Thank You for the Messages of tonight, please accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name.
As for these people who have come to surrender their lives unto You, I pray Lord Almighty that You will receive them, You will forgive them their sins, You will wash away their sins and You will saves their souls.
Father, am praying that beginning from today, You will write their names in the book of life. You will receive them into the family of God and from this moment onward, anytime they call on You, You will please answer them by fire.
In Jesus Mighty Name we prayed – Amen!
Those of you who have come forward, I want to rejoice with you and I want to promise you that from now on, I will be praying for you. So I would need your names, address and your prayer requests. I promise you, I will be praying for you. So if you turn to your left, you will see a man there with a placard, please follow him, he will take you to where some Pastors are waiting and they will collect your information and bring you back very quickly.
God bless you, you can begin to go now. Let’s give the Lord a big round applause as they go.
If you are clapping for Jesus, clap and if you don’t want to clap, don’t clap at all. You know the Lord told me that proud people don’t know how to Praise Him. When you can’t Praise Him, you can’t clap for Him. It’s a symbol of pride (2x).
Clap for Him (2x). Thank You Father – Amen!
It is only one prayer I want you to pray tonight before I pray for you.
But in the mean time, I want you to stand on your feet, lift your voice to the Almighty God loud and clear and say: Father, beginning from right now, begin To use me for Miracles, Signs and Wonders: Open your mouth and cry unto Him, beginning from right now (2x), begin to use me Lord for Miracles, for Signs, for Wonders, begin to use me for Healing the sick, begin to use me for Raising the dead, begin to use me for Opening the wombs, begin to use me Lord for Miracles, for Signs and Wonders. Begin from this very moment, begin to use me for Miracles, for Signs and for Wonders.
Thank You Father, in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen.
So Father, tonight in Your Precious Mighty Name, I decree concerning all these Your children who have come, beginning from now, begin to use them for Your Miracles, for your Signs and for Your Wonders.
Beginning from this very moment, when they lay hands on the sick, let them recover, when they lay hands on the dead, let the dead rise again, when they pray for the barren , let them conceive.
Beginning from this moment, My Father and My God, let them begin to Shine.
And I pray Lord God Almighty that even before tomorrow morning, they would have Testimonies.
Thank You Almighty God; in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
If you believe God has answered that prayer, let me hear you shout Hallelujah – HALLELUJAH!!!
Thank you so much for staying all through to read.
It is outrightly wrong and a sin for anyone that wants to swim in God’s Glory to consciously remove the original source of the work that does not emanate for him or her!
