… Tonight, you are going to add another name to your list of names, and that is: “I am a BRANCH OF THE VINE”.
BIBLE TEXT: JOHN 15:1-5
1. I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit He taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3. Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you.
4. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
So, Adeboye (Moses/Titilayomi/Adebanjo) is a branch of Jesus Christ.
What about you?
… I am Branch of the
And because you are here tonight, you will be completely whole in Jesus Name – Amen!
But much more than that; beginning from tonight, God will begin to use you to heal the sick – Amen.
Jesus said: I am the Vine.
Who is the Vine?
Basically, the Vine (that is Jesus Christ) is a combination of Divinity and Humanity. Jesus Christ is a combination of God and Man.
John 1: verses 1 and 14 says thus:
1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
14. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His Glory, the Glory as of the only begotten of the Father) full of Grace and Truth.
Jesus Christ is God and at the same time, when He was here on earth 100% Man. Matthew 3:16-17
16. And Jesus, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the Heavens were opened unto him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him:
17. And lo a voice from Heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
And in Mark 4:35-41; the Bible says when Jesus and His disciples were in a boat, the Humanity slept. But once they woke Him up, the Divinity spoke. And as we all know that Divinity never sleeps. He that keepeth Israel neither slumber nor sleep.
But because Divinity was wearing humanity, He slept. And now, as the Vine is, so are the Branches. In 1 John 4:17; the Bible says – Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world.
So we are also a combination of Divinity and Humanity.
In Mark 6:30-32; Jesus said to His Disciples: Your humanity needs help.
… You need sleep, you need help.
So, no matter how Anointed you are; You need rest. I know some of you don’t believe Pastors need rest. Even the General Overseer is human; he needs rest.
But if you are a “True Christian”, according to 2 Peter 1: 2-4; you are human. And Humanity can do nothing without Divinity.
That is what He says in John 15:5 – For without me, ye can do nothing.
Even the Vine when He was on earth said so in John 14:10 – Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The Words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works.
Meaning what? You see me healing the sick; that is Jesus saying: you too shall perform miracles. Why? Because He will supply the Power, Strength and Ability from within.
Philippians 4:13 says – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
How many things? All things through Christ.
You can do everything that He did. And so, the Branch is far, far more Powerful inside than it may look outside.
1 John 4:4 says – 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.
The One who is in the Vine is also the One in the Branches. In Mark 4:35-44; the storm was raging, they woke Jesus up, and He rebuked the wind. He turned around and rebuked the Disciples. Why?Jesus expected His disciples to still the storm.
If only you will cooperate with the Divinity tonight; beginning from tonight, you will be Healing the sick – Amen.
… I wasn’t even expecting you to say Amen to that.
You are not the one who will do the Miracle – it is the One in you. Greater is He that is you than he that is in the world.
And What are the things that are in the world? – Sickness, diseases.
If you are a Christian, the One that is inside of you is Greater.
1. So one of the reasons why He says Glory Ahead is that; beginning from tonight, you too will be Healing the sick.
2. Secondly, the Vine is the Life. John 14:6 says – I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.
That is the One that is living in the Branch.
Galatians 2:20 says – I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the Faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me.
I told my children in the month of October 2018 – I said; nobody can kill me. They looked at me surprised and they said why? Because I am already dead. You can’t kill a dead man.
Who is living in you? Jesus Christ!
I am very slow tonight, because it is very important. You are going to leave this Congress completely CHANGED – As Light is used to shine in the World; as Salt is used to preserve the earth and as a Branch is used to Impart your Generation.
3. Because Jesus is living in you, His blood is what is flowing in you. On the outside it may not appear so. But in the actual fact, the Blood of Jesus flows in you. And according to Revelation 12: 10-11; that Blood has the Power to overcome the devil.
The implication of this is that if you can believe; the Blood of the Vine flowing in you can overcome any germ, virus, etc.
Because Jesus said in 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.
It is written, the Just shall live by his Faith.
There are several things happening in life today that someone cannot explain; because it is not by Humanity, but Divinity.
Some of you here remember the story of one of our sisters whose husband was a Doctor. The husband had Ebola. And there was Holy Communion. She took a little bit of the Holy Communion, ran back to her husband. And he was healed instantly.
May I decree to your life today, that whatsoever is called sickness in your life is consumed now. His Blood is flowing in your veins and it will make you whole.
Roman 8: 11; if the spirit that quickens… To quicken means to make alive. To be restored.
For example in Matthew 8:1-3, a leper came to Jesus. A leper is a walking corpse, calling death inside and parts of the body gone. Jesus gave him just a touch, and instantly he was Healed.
In Acts 3: 1-8; Peter said to the lamb man at the Beautiful Gate: Silver and Gold, we have none. And he touched the man. He held him by the hand the man who was lame stood and began to leap and praise God.
I have told you the story before about and elder Chief that was paralysed. He was rich and so taken to London for treatment. The Doctors said they could not help him. And he was brought back home. And one little girl from RCCG told him; I know where you can be Healed. He was brought here. And I showed him this Passage of Scriptures. Preached to him, and he gave his life to Jesus Christ.
… They carried him in, but he WALKED back to his car!
There is a Spirit within you that will begin to Heal you now. If you believe it can I hear your Amen – Amen.
If Christ is in you, this follows that His power and His Virtues will flow through you.
Ephesians 3:20 – Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the Power that worketh in us,
It is beyond human imagination what God can do for you. Because there is a Power working in you. The minute you give your life to Jesus, God can can do all things, according to His Power.
Mark 5: 25-34 tells us the story of the woman with the issue of blood who said if I can just touch. That alone is enough Power at work. The woman came to touch and was Healed.
In Acts 19: 11-12; the bible says that from the body of a Branch, Paul Apostle; Aprons were taken to the sick and as they touch their bodies they were Healed.
How many Testimonies have you heard; dead
Raised, healing. Go ahead and give the Lord a Big hand of applause. Some of the Testimonies are so big that we are afraid to share them.
I heard a Testimony last month. I was preaching somewhere. There was a man there who said: “If I had known I would have brought my sick person to this Program”. But suddenly he remembered he was at the Program. And can pray for the sick. He prayed and the fellow got Healed.
You are here tonight (or reading), in the Name that is above every other names; from this moment onward, when you lay hands on the sick, they shall recover – Amen.
Whatever is in Him is in you. And because it is in you, you can use it and it will perform Miracles.
I can go and on. I can talk about His Words. I can talk about His Name.
Every Branch of the Vine can do what the Vine can do. You can then imagine what happens when you bring two (2) Branches together. What happens if two (2)of us agree as touching anything.
Matthew 18:19 says: Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them by my Father which is in Heaven.
Is there anyone here tonight who will agree with me that every sick person will be healed? Is there anybody like that?
You may say, we have seen and heard; well you are the General Overseer. But He didn’t say, these signs shall follow the General Oversee. He said these signs shall for THOSE THAT BELIEVE.
How many Believers are here tonight?
You say, but my faith is small. I have Good News for you, I had that problem too before. I believed that everything in the Bible is true. I said Lord I can do it if only my Faith is big enough. And I fasted – real fasting, not Daniel fasting, the real one. And I asked God for just one thing “Lord, let my Faith be big enough so I can perform Miracle.
God sat me down and asked me some questions. I am going to ask you the same question as His Son.
Do you believe there is God? Yes! Have you seen Him before? No! How do you know? Do you believe that He died and rose again? Do you believe He is coming back again? Answer me!
And then why are you saying your Faith is small. You have strong Faith. It takes strong Faith to believe all these.
You may not believe it before now. It takes strong Faith to perform Miracles.
I know you will ask me ” what if I pray and nothing happens? ”
.. What if you pray something happened?
Why look at the negative side? He said you shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. Is God a liar? – NO!
I know the next question will be daddy even with your Faith; why is it that you pray and nothing happens? I was troubled too until God told me “Death is final Healing”. Am not talking about Divine Health or having to postponed the day of death.
How many of you wants to live in Divine Health? Let me hear your Amen – Amen!
It will begin from now onward in Jesus Name.
When a child is learning how to walk, he takes the first step and falls. Have you seen a child while trying to walk and cry? No the child laughs.
Beginning from this moment, in the Name that is above other names, you will be Healing the sick. Unless you are not a Branch of the of the Vine. Unless you have disconnected yourself from Vine.
He said; am the Vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
Those of us here who are committed to abiding in Him, no matter what. There are some of us here, no matter what, can’t leave Jesus or cease to follow Him. If you are one of us let me hear you shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
As long as you remain connected, the Power is in Him.
Several years ago He saved my life. So from this moment on, remain connected to the Vine.
It is time to pray. But before I prayer, if you are here and you are not attached to the Vine and you want to be attached to the Vine. I will count from one (1) to ten (10). Before I say Ten (10) come to Jesus, He will save your soul and you will become one of the Branches of the Vine who is also the Life.
So come and surrender your life to Him as I pray for you to become a Branch of Jesus Christ.
I am counting….
Thank you Jesus. Those of you on the way keep coming. Those who are already here; talk to Him. Cry to Him to save your soul. And make you a Branch of the Vine.
And those of us that are saved, let us stretch forth our hands towards these people and intercede for them. Let us pray that the One who saved our souls will save their own souls too. And make them a Branch of His Vine.
Counsellors begin to move closer. And if anyone wants to still come, Come! As I begin to pray for your Salvation.
Thank you Father. Glory be to your Holy Name. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
GO PRAYS: Saviour, I want to thank you for your Words. I thank you for these your children who have come out. Please remember your Promise that whosoever that come to you; you will no wise cast out. Please receive them, forgive them, save their souls, let your Blood wash away their sins. Attached them to yourself, write their names in the Book of Life.
Now those of you infront congratulations! I will need your names, addresses and Prayer requests. I promise to be praying for you.
The rest of us, if you believe, you will agree with me , now stand on your feet.
1. The first prayer is for yourself: Father, everything that is my my System that is not of God; Let your Blood Consume them right now.
2. Now we are going to hold our hands: Father, let your Spirit quickens the body of my neighbour right now.
3. With your hands still joined to your neighbour: Father, we are in one accord in your Church. Let there be no more Cancer
4. Now I want you to lift your hands to God and take this prayer seriously: Father, from now on, when I lay these hands on the sick, let them Recover.
5. For your Final prayer, let me just explain something to you: Some years ago I went on a Missionary Journey on a Country in Africa. The food was something else. So I kept going to the toilet. I think I went to the toilet twenty three (23) times. Suddenly I remembered His Words that says and ye shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover; even if I am the sick.
Then I laid by two hands on my head and commanded Healing on my body.
So lay your two (2) hands on your head and command Healing into your Body right Now.
Thank you Father, in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
With those hands still on your head: I want to pray for you:
My Father and my God, I want to thank you for your Words. I want to thank you that you are the Vine and we are the Branches. I want to thank you that the works that you did, we shall do also. Please accept our thanks in Jesus Name.
Daddy in Agreement with all these your children and I say right now, right now, right now! Let your Healing Power begin to flow through all of them. I command your Healing into everyone of them right now, in Jesus Name.
And I hereby decree, everyone of them, from this moment onward, when they lay their hands on the sick, let the sick recover in Jesus Name.
And even before tomorrow morning, let the Testimonies be many. Thank you Almighty God. In Jesus Mighty Name.
Put those hands together for the Almighty God and shout a big Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
EDITORIAL NOTE: That was another awesome moments in the Presence of God. And for your information, a third of this Year’s Holy Ghost Congress gone already.
God has really manifested Himself in our midst tonight and our Healings are Permanent in Jesus Name.
Day 3 is the Deliverance Day. So ensure like daddy said bring all your associates including your enemies for Deliverance.
The Glory of God surely awaits you in Jesus Mighty Name – AMEN!!!
