Well let somebody shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
If you know that the Glory is Ahead, you should shout the loudest Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
I wish you do me a favour – just turn to two (2) or three (3) and tell them something is going to happen for me here today – Amen!
We thank the Almighty God for the opportunity to be here again and we thank our daddy and our mummy for the privilege and the chance that they have gave for us to share what the Almighty God has spoken to us with you.
Please understand that you are not just here because someone invited you or you are not here by coincidence or circumstances.
Whatever means God has used to bring you here was because the Almighty God desires an encounter with you today.
Please go to somebody and tell him or her that I will have an encounter with the Almighty God.
My Father and my God, we thank you so much for this day. We bless you now for what we know that you are going to do.
Whatever situations your children brought to this Place; let them leave differently in Jesus Mighty Name.
Whatever sickness, whatever diseases, whatever distress – whatever come here with them today; my Father and my God by the time they leave here, let them leave singing a New Song.
And at the end of it all, you take all the Glory and let your children get the Blessings.
For in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen.
My assignment with you today is to Talk with you on the topic: “Wings’ like An Eagle”.
Our text will be taken from Exodus 19:4 – Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians and how I have you on Eagles’ wings and brought you unto myself.
Beloveth, the God that we serve is a God of Purpose. By that we mean that He already has a reason in mind and a Destiny prepared before He brings a thing to come to past.
For example, the Bible says in Romans 8:28 – And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His Purpose.
So I remind you again, the Almighty God is a “God of Purpose”. He is not the one that has to wait to see how a thing will go to determine whether it will be a success or not. He has already spoken Success before He speaks the thing to come to past.
What does this means to you and I?
This implies that even our adverse situations, even the circumstances that are uncomfortable; even the things that seems to be chaotic (I think the word we use here is wahala – trouble,).
… Even all those works together for your Good.
It means that there is absolutely nothing that can come into your life that God who has your destiny has not designed for you. Even that situation(s) will work to get you there.
Why? Because the Bible says in Psalms 37:23 that: The steps of a Good man are ordered by the LORD and he delighteth in his way.
So you should know that you will get to where God said you will get to.
I want you to understand that it does not matter how devastating the situation may appear; even in that moment, it may seems things has fallen out but the Truth of the matter is that even that is the part of the Process that will cause you and I to make Progress so that we can grab hold of God’s Promise.
I said that even the adverse situation is part of the Process so that we can attain God’s Promise for our lives.
Listen, I need you to understand that every adversity works to your own advantage.
Tell someone near you that neighbour; my adversity will work to my advantage. Common on tell one more person on the other side that: my adversity is going to work towards my advantage.
… If you believed it shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Now how can I said that: Listen to me, it is because the Plans God has for your life, He had it before you are born. The Plans that God has for you and I, He had it before we were born.
He had a pre-birth Destiny for you and I. In Psalms 139: 13-16 paraphrased. It says: I was formed in the inward part of my mother’s womb. It says that he has possessed my reins and covered me while I was in there in the womb. It goes on to say that my face was not hidden from you. When I was made in secret, the Psalmist says God’s eyes saw my substance, yet being unperfect.
Meaning that before He formed you, He already has the Finished Product of what you and I will be.
He said it this way to Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1:5 when Jeremiah was coming face to face with his assignment for life. And he was saying that he was unable to do it.
The Almighty God reminded him of this; that before I formed thee in the belly (of your mother’s womb); I knew thee and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee and I ordained thee a Prophet unto the Nations.
That means that even before you kick your mummy the first time in her womb; before you took your first breadth of air; before you came out – God already had a Plan and Assignment for your life and He already knew that you will be a Success in it.
How do I know that?
Because He said in the same Jeremiah 29:11; it says: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end – it means to give you a Future and a Hope.
He says that I am already thinking of your tomorrow while you are still struggling with your today. He said that I already got your Future Plans for you.
I have come to tell someone here today that you are not an afterthought, you are not an accident but you are an Assignment.
And since you are an assignment, you belong to Him and His Name is on the Line. And so He is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that you and I succeed so that His Name does not go down.
Listen Beloveth; am telling you that you are going to succeed not because you are smart, have most money but because His Name is engraved on you.
He is your Manufacturer and you are the Product. He is going to make sure that the Product succeeds and He is going to do so for His Name’s Sake.
Please turn to your neighbour and tell him/her that I have gotten to succeed because God’s Name is on the Line.
Exodus 32: 9-14; that is the story of how God heard the noise going on in the camp. He told Moses to go back to the camp as He has heard a lot of noise of these people. They are stiff necked people and I don’t want to deal with them again. He said am going to consume them and make them a Great Nation. Now hear what Moses said: Moses said you cannot kill them because our enemies will say that you brought them out of Egypt and could not keep up with your words of taking them to the Land promised to them.
As a result of that, God said since I put my Name out there; am going to work with them to get them in.
What am I telling you?
Am telling you that if everyone else wants to give up on you; when everybody else wants to walk away from you; am telling you that am going to succeed.
Why? Because God’s Name is on the line.
I wish you are going to touch your neighbour and say don’t look at where I am not; I have gotten a destiny that I got to fulfill.
… If you believed shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Beloveth, I want you to understand that the Almighty God speaks concerning you and I. And when He speaks, concerning you and I; He is not a liar. The Bible says in Number 23:19; it says that: God is not a man that He should lie; neither the son of man that He should repent: hath He said and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken and shall He not make it good?
Meaning God’s Name and God’s Words are on the Line.
I am going somewhere with this: Whatever God had spoken concerning you and I; He got to make it happen somehow because His Words has gone out.
The Bible says in Isaiah 55:11; it says that: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Whatever God has spoken about you has got to happen.
I was here some years ago and heard daddy said the Testimony of a woman that came to him that was having in her womb a pregnancy of a girl. But because her husband wanted a son, she wanted daddy to pray and agree with her that the child will change from being a girl to a boy.
And I heard that Testimony and I wrap my Faith around it for something that I want God to do for me.
How much do I know that some years later; there will be a young man that came to me in our Ministry and he had two (2) girls and wife pregnant now and has two (2) more weeks to go in her pregnancy and had a girl.
And he was depressed and came to me and said Pastor: Can you agree with me and pray that my wife will have a boy. I said when will she be due; he said in two (2) weeks. I said ok; I held on to what I heard daddy said. I told him that if you will be at the next place that am doing Ministrations I will lay hands upon you and God will surprise you.
I went to another city; he came to where I was and I saw him in the Service. He came afterwards and said: Here I am and I placed my hands on the wife’s stomach and say God will surprise you. I said when next will your wife go back to the hospital. That day was Friday and he said Tuesday. I pray a simple prayer.
The following Tuesday, he and his wife went to the hospital. He called me and told me: daddy you won’t believe what happened. He said the doctor said he doesn’t know what happened? It was a girl for eight (8) and half Months and now it is a boy in the womb.
Listen, I don’t care what the situations appear to be; if the Almighty God has spoken over your life, somehow He got to make it happen.
Stand to your feet, please I want you to lift up your voice loud and clear and say: Father, turn the tides in my Favour.
Go ahead and pray like a Warrior please. My Father and my God, my situation is looking one way; turn the tides in my Favour. Let it work together for my good.
… Thank you Lord, in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed. So shall it be in Jesus Name. Please be seated.
Listen, wherever God said you are going to end up; not only whatever He says; you will end up somehow. He is going to get you there
Listen to me closely, by God’s Plan you are already there.
… Common on say it to yourself: Am already there.
And His Plan for your life, you are already there.
You simply have to go through the Process because the Destiny is already steady. You are already there and its just that you only have to go through a Process.
The Bible says in Isaiah 46:10; it says that: He has called your end from the beginning. And things that are not yet from Ancient times saying my Counsel will stand and I will do my God Pleasure.
Which means that wherever He has told you that you will end or be is already settled.
I remember daddy teaching us maybe two (2) years ago. He said God concludes or finishes a Project before He begins it.
How can that be so? Listen the Bible says in Revelations 1:8 – He refers to Himself as Alpha and Omega. He is the Beginning and the End.
Which means when He starts, it is over. When He begins, it is finished because beginning and Ending are in Him. Started and Finish are in Him.
In order words, do you remember in Luke 1: 27-33. You remember how Gabriel came to the virgin Mary and when he came he said oh woman you are highly favoured. He says you are Blessed among all women. He says that you are going to conceive and have a child. He is going to be called Emmanuel. He is going to Head a Great Nation. He is going to rule His people. He is going to have a Kingdom that never ends.
Watch this; that is the story. But he is telling her about a future and a Son – his life, reign and Kingdom and she has not even gotten pregnant. Yet he talked of a future while she is still looking to wrap her mind about today.
I am talking to somebody here right now, because what the Lord deal with her and by the time she got to Luke 1: 34; she said how can this be since I don’t know a man?
In other words, God is saying that I have your future mapped out for you. I have already got people to help you, got people who will do that. All I need you to do is to trust me that I will do it.
I want to help someone here today; when it comes to God, I want you to know that your future is God’s Past.
Why should I say that? Listen to me; He is the One who was, and who is and who is to come.
I wish you to tell your neighbour that my future is already settled.
If you believe that shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Now I begin to round up. The real issue that caused you and I to struggle is this: After we have accepted the fact that the Almighty God will do what He said He will do because He is not a liar; after we know that whatever He said He will do will come to past; after we have accepted that our future is already settled then the thing we now struggled with because of our hearts is to BELIEVE.
That is why the Bible says in Marks 9: 23-24 –
23. Jesus said unto him, if thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
24. And straightaway the father of the child cried out and said with tears, Lord I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
Because it is sometimes hard for us to believe that God has the ability to do what we are believing Him for. And so the text that I read in your ears about the Eagles’ wings is now going to show us why the text is important. The record is in Exodus 19:4.
God says that do you see what I did to the Egyptians? He said I brought you out to myself.
Beloveth, the efforts in getting you to where you are is not based on you but with the Almighty God.
Tell your neighbour that God is going to do it.
Now I want to say something: When He said I brought you out on Eagles’ wings; it simply means that all efforts are on Him. He said I brought you out to myself.
Why? I have a Place I need to get to. So I did all the work.
You see the Lion is the “King of the Beast” in the Jungle. But in the airways, the Eagles is called the “Royalty of the Airways’.
There are a whole lot of things that I can talk to you about the Eagles but I have to leave here.
I have no time to tell you that it is the greatest of all birds – its Vision is so sharp and could see miles away. I have no time to tell you how patient it is – when it waits for raven for hours and when the raven comes, snatch it because the ravens is not expecting it.
There is no time to talk about the Eagles as a Warrior – when it looks as if it is about to lose the battle; it won’t give up but rather die than quit.
There is no time to talk about how the Eagles takes on the serpent because it will take the serpent high into the air and then drop it on the rock in order to kill it and eat it.
There is no time to talk about some of the characteristics of the Eagles which shows how tall it was. The Eagles’ wing is about six (6) to seven and half thick. Which means that the Strength of an Eagle is double its size of its body.
There is something about the Eagles in Proverbs 30: 18-19 –
18. There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea four which I know not.
19. The way of an Eagle in the air, the way of a serpent upon the rock, the way of a ship in the midst of the sea and the way of a man with a maid.
In other words, he is saying that I don’t understand how an Eagle does what it does when in the air.
Literally, he is saying that it is a function of the wings that the Eagles has that cause its arms to wander.
This is what he says about the Eagles
1. The Eagles without a GPS system or a Road Map can stay in the air and get to where it is supposed to be even though it looks as if no way for it to happen.
Am here to talk to somebody again that with God moving us, He does not have to have a GPD system, He doesn’t have to have a Road Map. Even if you see a Red Sea; you serve a God that can make a way where there seems to be no way.
Stand to you feet please. I want you to pray with all your Might and say Father; every Place that was blocked in my destiny, please make a way for me – Pray now Warriors, you can pray.
In this situation that is concerning me, Lord make a way for me. Don’t let my adversaries mock me.
… Thank you Lord. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen. So shall it be in Jesus Name. Please be seated.
2. Listen to me; not only can the Eagles find its way where there seems to be no way but the Eagles like to go to High Places. Eagles like to get to High spots. They are not comfortable being in the down low. They are always looking forward to go Higher.
David made a statement in Psalms 61:2. He says that: From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than me.
I don’t know who I have come here for but I have come to Prophesy to someone that this is the end of your Low Season. You will find your Way higher.
If you believe shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah
3. Not only does the Eagles has the ability to go without any Pathway and want to go to High Places but listen; the Eagles is interesting because when the doves and other birds sees problems coming (when the storm is coming); they will run to the back of the rock to hide.
But what does the Eagles does? When the Eagles knows that the storm is coming; it positions itself, wait for the storm and with the storm coming it will run to the storm, stretch out its wings and make the story carries it instead of having to flap its wings to where it supposed to go. So the Eagles uses the storm to promote itself to its Next Destiny.
Stand on your feet please, we want to pray to the Almighty God and we want to ask that the Almighty God and say Father; the storms that is about to come – take me out or destroy me; let me use it to take me to Glory Ahead and to my Destiny – Pray like Warriors.
Thank you Lord. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen. So shall it be in Jesus Name.
4. Please let us remain standing as I want to tell you something else about the Eagles.
Not only does it position itself when the storms is coming but hear this; what the storm does is that it lifts the Eagles up because its wings stretch out – so the Eagles is now riding on the storm.
You will ask the Almighty God now saying Father, I don’t want the storm to destroy me. Let me just ride it out.
Say Father, I decree that the storm will not destroy me as am going to ride it out – Pray Now … Pray!
This is not the end for me. Am riding the storm out. Am using this adversity to my advantage. I am on the Eagles’ Wings.
Thank you Lord. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen. Let your Amen be loud and clear – Amen!
Do you know that there are some people who has advantage over you. But what they don’t know is that you are on Eagles’ Wings.
Listen, do you remember in 1 Kings 18: 41-46; Elijah said to Ahab – get your horses and chariots for there is a storm coming; I have heard the Sound of Abundance. So you need to go ahead.
And I want you to know that Ahab took off with his horses and chariots. But Elijah waited and positioned himself and there came an Eagles’ Wings. The Bible says that the Hands of the Lord came upon Elijah and he outran Ahab with his horses and chariots.
I have come to Prophesy to you and to tell you that everyone who started ahead of you; they will soon be looking at your back.
Lift up your voice loud and clear and say Father, put me on Eagles’ Wings. Let my enemies see my back – Pray now, Pray!
Everyone that has gone ahead of me, let me outrun them.
Thank you Jesus. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen. Let your Amen be loud and clear – Amen!
5. Beloveth listen to this; I told you that the Eagles body can be one height but the wings is double the height of the body.
The Bible says in 1 Kings 19: 1-7; when Elijah had come from one journey and then was running on the storm. He said this: he was so depressed and wanted to die. But God gave him one portion of food and told him to go to sleep. He woke up, God gave him a second portion. He gave him twice as much as he needed.
So if the Eagles’ wings are twice the size of the body. That means that when God is ready to move you and I; He is going to double out our portion for where we have to go.
I want you to lift up your voice mightily now and say Father, there is Glory Ahead please give me a double portion – Go ahead and pray now.
I got to make it on my journey. Symbolically, double my supply, portion and what I need as you are the God of More than Enough. Have used so much this year and am on my way to Glory. My Next Season will be Glorious – double my portion.
Thank you Lord. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen. So shall it be in Jesus Name.
Finally, I want you to pray this Prayer point mightily – Not by Might, not by Power but by the Spirit of the Lord.
We want the Almighty God to let His Spirit hold us up so that we will never go down again.
… This level that we are now, you will never come back to this level again.
Lift up your voice loud and clear and say: Father, by your spirit lift me higher and don’t let me ever come down again.
Am tired of the valley, don’t let me ever come down to this level again. Take me higher and higher in you and I will never come down again. Take me higher in every facets of my life – spiritually, materially and maritally. Now shall my head be lifted up above all my enemies.
Thank you Lord. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
My Father and my Lord we thank you. Saviour we bless you Daddy for all your children that are here and all those watching us all over the world (or reading).
My Father and my God, put them on Eagles’ Wings in Jesus Name.
Daddy as am asking you sir don’t let them ever settle for the valley in Jesus Name.
Father, every storm that comes in their lives, let that storm be used to promote them to a New Level in Jesus Name.
Father, am asking you that even when they feel faint, they feel like giving up; remind them that those that wait upon you shall renew their strength. They will mount up with the Wings as Eagles; they will run and not be weary; they will walk and not faint. Let them experience Victory in every facets of their lives.
Thank you my Father. Glory be to your Holy Name. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
Common on shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah.
Tell your neighbour that there is Glory Ahead.
Clap your hands and give God all the Praise.
… Let every Eagles Praise the Lord – Hallelujah!!!
