2. On Friday night (February 2019 HGS held on 3rd of February, 2019) – You can check out the library of Discovery Media Crew for the Full Text of the Message; there was a Word of Prophesy. God said that no matter how hard the devil may try that there will be no mourning in our families this Year.
When that Word came, we didn’t know that death was trying to take our son, our brother – the Vice President of Nigeria (Prof Yemi Osinbajo) away. But God put the devil to shame.
May you please join me in giving Him Glory that there is no mourning in our family this morning. Let’s Praise Him; let’s give Him Glory; let’s Adore Him and let’s lift Him Higher and say Father thank you (3 times) Lord that we are not weeping this morning and that we are not mourning this morning.
Thank you because you are a Faithful God. We worship you, we adore you, we give you Glory, we give you Honour, we give you Adorations because you know the end from the beginning and Oh Lord, your Words is yea and amen.
Thank you that when you speak, it is done. We bless your Holy Name (2 times). Thank you Lord that you still speak to men. Thank you that we still hear from you. Oh, what a marvelous God you are, what a wondrous God you are. Blessed (7 times) be your Holy Name. We worship and adore you. Glory be your Holy Name.
Thank you Almighty God. Be Glorified forever. In Jesus Might Name we worship – Amen.
3. Our Prayers this morning will be for everybody – Father, Mother, son and daughter. It is going to be based on one of the statements made by one of the Preachers on Friday (Talk 2 Specifically delivered by Deacon Sam Adewale – Watch out for the Full Text of the Message from the library of Discovery Media Crew). That there is one medicine that can change your “Mess” to a “Message”.
So we are going to cry to the Almighty God once again this morning and say Father, have Mercy on me, on my family, on your Church, on Nigeria; change our “Mess” to a “Message”. Go ahead and talk to the Almighty God, Lord have Mercy on fathers, mothers, sons, daughters; on me, on my family. Almighty God have Mercy on Redeemed Christian Church of God, on Nigeria have Mercy, Oh Lord on your Church all over the world … just have Mercy.

… Let somebody shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah.
Shake hands with one (1) or two (2) people and say Light of the world good morning.
BIBLE TEXT: ISAIAH 60: 1-5
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.
4. Lift up thine eyes round about and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.
5. Then thou shalt see and flow together and thine heart shall fear and be enlarged because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.
… If that is for you, let your Amen be the loudest – Amen!
This morning we want to share for just for few minutes “The Carrier of His Glory”.
The Glory of God as we have learnt in the past is as Light.
Luke 2:9 says the Glory of God shone on the people.
So when you carry His Glory, it means that you are Shinning His Light.
Matthew 5: 14-16; the Lord said to His Disciples that you are the Light of the world. And let your Light so Shine that people may see your “Good Works” and Glorify your Father in Heaven.
1. So when you are a Carrier of His Glory; it means that whenever you arrives, Light arrives and darkness departs.
So may I decree to someone here today that from this moment onwards, everywhere you go; darkness will flee – Amen.
For example, in 2 Kings 2: 19-22; the Bible tells us that when Elisha arrives in Jericho; the people of Jericho came and said: sir, our town is beautiful but we have problems. We have been living under a curse and we need help. Then Elisha said that, that is no problem, I will take care of the situation. Give me a new bowl and put salt in it. He took the salt, went to the source of their river, pour the salt and made a decree – He said that from now on in this city; no more death, no more sickness and no more barrenness.
… That shall be true of our homes, it shall be true of our towns, it shall be true of our states and it shall be true of Nigeria (mention the name of your own Nation too if you are a Non-Nigerian.
2. When you carry His Glory, whenever you arrive; curses must depart. When you arrive, sickness must depart.
In Acts 9: 32-35; when Peter arrived at Aeneas’ house; all he said was Aeneas, Gos has made you whole. And immediately, this man who has been bedridden for a long time got up completely whole.
May I encourage you in the Mighty Name of Jesus that when you get home today and there is anyone in your family that is sick; command them to be well in Jesus Name – Amen.
In the same Acts 9: 36-42; the Bible says that they invited Peter to the house of Dorcas who had died. They said look, this woman was a very nice woman and very good to us. But now she is dead. He said well don’t worry yourself; Light has come and death must disappear.
I want to encourage us as I know that this may sound difficult – that from now on, anytime that you heard that somebody has just died; with all boldness based on the Word of God, command death to surrender the Victim and death will obey you in Jesus Name – Amen.
3. When you arrive, barrenness must depart.
In 2 Kings 4: 8-17; when the Shunemmite woman invited Elisha into her home and began to take care of him. One day, Elisha asked her what do you need and the woman said I don’t need anything. But they discovered that the woman was barren. And Elisha Prophesized and said nine (9) Months from now, you will have a baby boy.
We know that the woman laughed but the Words has gone out.
I love the Testimony of one of my sons. He came to us that myself and wife had been married for so long and we are trusting God for the fruit of the womb. And with all boldness and Faith in my God who can do anything, I said ok what kind of sex do you want. The husband looked at me and said you have not even prayed. I said don’t worry yourself about that. What do you want? He said he wanted a boy and I said that it is done.
For those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb; today from this exalted altar I decree nine (9) Months from now; you will come rejoicing.
But there was a bigger Testimony which am sure you heard that one yourself. Husband and wife came – they probably heard about the Testimony of the Pastor.
And I said ok what do you want. The husband shouted a boy; the wife immediately said a girl. So I said no problem then we have a set of twins. Nine (9) Months later, the two (2) of them came – the husband was carrying the boy and the wife was carrying the girl.
… In the Name of the One that sent me; barrenness ends in your life today – Amen.
Now, it is important that we know that if you are a Carrier of His Glory; the Glory is not yours. You are a Carrier of “HIS” Glory – the Glory belongs to God.
And He is very jealous of His Glory. He said that He will not share His Glory with any man.
So when God begins to use you because from today He will begin using you.
I know some of you will not believe but the Words has gone out.
… This Year, you will carry His Glory – Amen.
When He begins to use you; don’t forget that the Glory is not yours – the Glory belongs to God.
That is why He chooses the “Most Unlikely People” to use. That is why He will choose a Fisherman and use his shadow to heal. That is why He will choose a Lawyer and use his handkerchief to cast out demons. That is why He will choose of all people a Mathematician and make him a Pastor.
That is the way of God because like I have told you before; if you are thinking of someone who should not be a Pastor then it should be a Mathematician.
Why? Because Mathematics and Christianity are Parallel lines. Mathematics will say if you prove it, I will believe it. Christianity says if you believe it, I will prove it. – both are Parallel Lines.
… People laughed and clapped … Let somebody shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah.
But then the Almighty God is Sovereign – He does as it pleases Him.
Very soon, you will be hearing Testimonies of our Spiritual and Traditional fathers casting out demons, raising the dead.
You will hear the Testimonies of Market Women causing blind eyes to be opened.
Very soon, mark my words … very, very soon; while the Choirs are singing, the lame will be walking.
Have said it before that the time has come now (I Prophesy it a long time ago); by the time we come with any dead to the Church and they say that they are looking for the General Overseer; and the Ushers will ah, how long is the fellow being dead. They will say two (2) days. Ah, ah; you don’t need the General Overseer for that – “Death release this fellow!
How do I know sir that this will come to past because He has fulfilled all other Prophesies. We just saw one example from Friday to Saturday.
He has done it before.
Then He said now: ARISE, SHINE; FOR THE LIGHT HAS COME.
Lift up your hands to the Almighty God and say: “I will Arise and I will Shine.
… So shall it be in Jesus Name – Amen.
So when the Miracles begins to happen; don’t try to take the Glory to yourself. You are not the “Miracle Worker” – it is God. You cannot raise the dead; it is the “Resurrection and the Life” that is dwelling in you that will do the raising of the dead.
When you lay your hands on the sick (I have explained this before); what He told me is that as you lay your hands; the sick will feel your hands but God will lay His own hands on your hands. The Power will flow through your hands to the sick and heal the sick.
So when the sick is healed; so to whom do you give the Glory – GOD!
… Let me hear somebody shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Now the Glory is not yours; you are merely the “Carrier of His Glory”.
But if you are the Carrier of His Glory; you will BENEFIT.
For example; take the story in Matthew 21: 1-9. Jesus Christ wanted to ride into Jerusalem and He sent His Disciples to go and bring Him an Ass or a Donkey. They brought the donkey and He wanted to sit on the donkey and rode on it to Jerusalem. The donkey became a Carrier of His Glory.
But do you know what happened to the donkey; they covered it with human dress, they spread clothes on the floor, they spread flowers on the floor – ordinary donkey began to ride on the clothes of men. It was wearing the clothes of people of course.
It is a donkey and donkeys are not always clever.
The donkey heard people shouting Hosannah, Hosannah. It looked at himself and said when did I become so popular – Look at me of all donkeys riding on human clothes?
… When you are a Carrier of His Glory; you will benefit.
Can I give you just one more example. One of my daughter came to me years ago and said daddy when am I going to marry?
I said well, are you Shinning the Light as a child of God?
She said ok I will continue to do that. She happened to be an Accountant. So she went to a Conference of Accountants and daddy said I should Shine the Light. So she began to distribute tracts to all the Accountants; witnessing to them and of all the people there, one (1) gave his life to Jesus Christ.
Three (3) Months later, the same man came to her and said I know that am a young Christian and I don’t know about hearing from God too much but I can feel something saying to me: “You are my wife”.
… I was the one who joined them together.
You carry the Glory, you will benefit.
This Year as you begin to carry His Glory, as you begin to Witness; every Needs of yours shall be met in Jesus Name – Amen.
And then in conclusion, once you begin to carry His Glory never stop.
The moment you made up your mind that I will Shine; keep Shinning. Never, never stop. Don’t ever do anything that will cause God to say: “I withdraw my Light.”
Because in the story of the donkey that I have just told you; do you know that the moment Jesus Christ came down from the donkey, nobody remembered the donkey again. The Bible did not even tells us what happened to it. It just said that Jesus came down from the donkey, went into the Temple and we never heard about the donkey again.
That’s why you are going to pray very serious Prayers this morning. You know that I kept on asking you to cry to the Lord for Mercy.
You are going to cry to Him when it is time to pray saying anything that I will do, that will cause you to withdraw your Light from me; Almighty God please don’t let me ever do it because if He comes down from your donkey, then the donkey is finished indeed.
So if you are now here and you have not come in contact with the One whose Glory we are talking about. You have not even surrendered your life to Him; I don’t think we need to beg you – you should run and surrender your life to Jesus Christ now because He is the One who has the Glory.
If you surrender your life to Him, He will ride you and you will become a “Carrier of His Glory”.
So if you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, am going to count from one (1) to seven (7); before I say seven (7), come and stand before me. And He will save your souls and the Light of the Almighty God will begin to Shine in your life – Amen!
So if you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, come very quickly now as I begin to count.
Don’t wait for anybody. You might be the only one God wants to bless here this morning and save. Just come!
Thank you those of you who are clapping; you will have something to clap about this Year. Hurry up, the Lord is waiting for you.
Thank you Father – Amen!
Now those of you who has come, let us talk to the Almighty God; ask Him to please save your soul, ask Him to wash you clean in His Blood, ask Him to become your Lord and Saviour. Tell Him I want to be a Cartier of your Glory, save me Oh Lord, wash me clean.
And the rest of us let us stretch our hands towards this our brother and sister and intercede for them. Let us say: Lord you save my soul save their own souls also. Be Merciful upon them, forgive all their sins, receive them into the family of Almighty God. Pray for them brethren.
If you want to come, come as you are not too late. Make sure you get here before I finished praying.
Thank you Father. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
PRAYER FOR SALVATION
Saviour, we just want to say thank you – thank you for your Words and thank you for these people who has come to surrender their lives to you. Please receive them in Jesus Name, save their souls, let your Blood wash them clean, write their names in the “Book of Life”, receive them into the family of God. And from now on, anytime they call on you, answer them by Fire. Don’t let them ever backslide. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
… Praise the Lord!
Now, I want to rejoice with those of you who has come forward. I want to Promise you that I will be praying for you. So I will need your names, address and Prayer request. And the Counsellors will attend to you in a moment. And I promise you that I will be praying for you.
But I want you to wait and join us as we pray the next prayer.
The rest of us, if you are sure the Lord will answer you today, stand and shout a big Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Lift up your voice to the Almighty God and say Father, for the rest of my life; let me carry your Glory. Open your mouth and talk to the Almighty God – Lord let me carry your Glory everywhere I go.
Thank you so much for reading all through.
… May the Glory of the Almighty God radiates in our lives and keep us glowing in Him all the days through the Year 2019 – Amen.
