BIBLE TEXT: Judges 6:11-16

11 And there came an Angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites.

12 And the Angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou Mighty man of Valour.

13 And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his Miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.

14 And the LORD looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee?

15 And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.

16 And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man.

May I say to someone today; “Surely, the Lord will be with you” (Amen).

You probably know the story. The children of Israel offended God, and to punish them, God handed them over to the Midianites. Now, the method of the Midianites was that they will wait, allow the children of Israel to plant and to nurture the farm. And then they will wait for the harvest time; when it was time to harvest, then they will come. They will come with the horses, with the camels, with all their animals; they will invade the land. The animals will eat whatever they can find, and the Midianites themselves will take the rest. And they will not leave, until there is nothing left.

So, one day, Gideon decided that since they didn’t know when the Midianites were going to arrive; he went into a cave to go and prepare the wheat; so that, just in case the enemies will come, they won’t see him where he was preparing the wheat.

Then, all of a sudden, he had a “DIVINE ENCOUNTER”. He had a VISITOR!

And in the Name that is above every other names; this very night; somebody will have a visitor of Joy – Amen!

And the Angel of the Lord said to Him, “Oh! How are you, Mighty man of Valour?”

He looked around, “who is the Angel talking to; me; Mighty man of Valour?” Hiding in the cave!

And the Almighty God said to him; “I want you to go and deliver your Nation from the hands of the enemies”

… That’s the story in brief!

And it’s going to lead us into five (5) simple Points, so that we can pray five (5) simple Prayers – with all your heart.

POINT NO 1: Prayer Number one (1) is going to be; “Asking the Almighty God to please Locate you”.

This man was hiding, but God LOCATED him. It doesn’t matter your address; God knows where you live! And when God wants to perform a Miracle for somebody SPECIAL; “He will LOCATE the person wherever he/she may be.

And I am here today to encourage you to be the one that God will LOCATE.

In Exodus 3:1-5; Moses was at the backside of the desert; but God located him there.

In 1 Samuel 16:11-13; when God wanted to appoint a New King for Israel and He came to the house of Jesse; Jesse presented seven (7) of his Boys and left David behind in the bush. Any time there was something good going on, they will leave David out of it. Even when the Man of God said: “bring all your Boys”; the father forgot David. But God LOCATED him

In the Name of the One who made the Heaven and the Earth; the Miracle of God will LOCATE you this year. (Amen)

In Luke 4: 25-26; the Bible says; “there were many widows in Israel in the time of Elijah but God located the widow of Zarephath”. He located somebody who needed help urgently.

Is there anybody here today who is in need of urgent help from the Almighty God? (THE DMC DO)! If you are the one let me hear you shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!

STORY 1: Let me remind you of a story; I have told you before. I think this happened in 1956. I was living with my Uncle, who was a Drummer. He only made money when somebody said they needed someone to come and drum. And so he was ways broke. And because I was living with him: it is whenever he had anything to eat that I ate.

And then, there was this day; he was hungry, I was hungry. He had no money to buy food; and we didn’t know where food will come from. God saw two (2) hungry people and He decided to LOCATE us.

I have told you the story before; one girl came in, carrying a bowl of pounded yam with chicken stew. And said to my Uncle; “my sister said I should go and give you this food”. My Uncle said, I don’t know your sister. And the little girl said, “my sister knows you, she said I should go and give you this food”.

Ok, greet your sister; whenever I have money I will send something to you. The girl left. As soon as she left, we descended on the food; we were just breaking the bones of the chicken when the girl returned and said; “Sorry, I came to the wrong address”.

PRAYER POINT NO. 1: Stand on your feet! Say: in the Mighty Name of Jesus; Let Your Miracle LOCATE me today. (Now, cry to the Almighty God).

I don’t know how You are going to do it Lord; In Your wonderful way let Your Miracle locate me today. I need help now and I need help urgently. Please Lord, before it’s late, let Your miracle locate me today.

Thank You Father, Glory be to Your Name Lord. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen. So shall it be in Jesus Name – Amen.

Please be seated.

POINT NO. 2: God not only located Gideon; He VISITED him.

… I am believing God that today, you will have a Visitor from Heaven – Amen!

Now, the Bible says, in Isaiah 66:1 that Heaven is God’s Throne and the Earth is His footstool. So, for God to visit a man, He has to stand up on His throne.

And the Bible tells us, that when God who is seated on His Throne gets up; something happens:

Psalms 68:1 says: “Let God Arise, and His enemies will scatter”.

I declare to somebody here tonight (or reading now); “Every enemies that has been hindering your progress will be scattered today!”

And so, God arose; and when He arise, He will then begin to walk towards the location. And when God begins to walk, the Bible says the Earth will tremble – Psalms 114:7.

And by the time God Arises, there will be an earthquake – Acts 16: 25-34.

When He ARISE; there will be an earthquake that will shake every prison door for good.

Whatever forces that has been holding you in captivity, they will let go of you today!

When God visits you, suddenly your shinning will begin. Because in Isaiah 60:1; the Bible says: “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.”

… TODAY, your Shinning will begin!

STORY NO. 2: Let me remind you again of another story before you pray your next prayer. It’s a story I have told you before – Two of my children went to America on Government Scholarship. When they got there; there was a change in Government. It was the era of Military coup, from one government to another. One Government gave them scholarship, a new Government came and cancel the scholarship. And they became stranded over there.

But while they were there, they gave birth to a set of twins: no food, no money, nothing! And then, the twins were both crying for food. When the father of the twins couldn’t take their cry anymore, he ran to the Library in the University: pretending he was going to study.

And then, there was a group of people who had been going from house to house to witness. They have been there since morning. And then they were tired, they wanted to go home. But their Leader said: “One more house”. Just one more house.

… If the Almighty God is going to bless just one more house, this year; it will be your own! (Amen).

In the mean time, my daughter who was alone with the twins, trying to see what they could do! They have prayed all manners of prayer, nothing happened. So she said, well, Daddy GO taught us “if prayers fail, we should try praise”. So she took her Tambourine and was beating the Tambourine when someone knocked at the door.

She opened the door and there was a white man, huge white man standing at the door. When the twins saw this huge man they stopped crying for a while. And the man said, “I have come to talk to you about Jesus”. She said, come in. By the time they have been talking for a few minutes, she said; “sorry, I would have entertained you, but there is nothing in the house”.

And the man said, what do you mean by there is nothing in the house? At least you would have a bottle of Coke. She said, nothing! So the man went to the fridge, the fridge was empty, went to the kitchen; everything empty! And the white man said, wait for me. And he went out, he went to the grocery store, brought food.

I pray for somebody here today (or reading now); “The one who will change your Destiny will pay you a visit”.

The white man brought food, they began to eat. The following Monday (for that was a weekend). The following Monday, he got a job for the husband. Not long after that, they bought themselves a house. The last time I heard from them; they already had at least two (2) Houses.

… Because God decided to pay a Visit to just one more house!

PRAYER NO. 2: stand on your feet, and cry to the Almighty God, say: Father in the Mighty Name of Jesus; VISIT ME TONIGHT! (Go ahead cry to God).

Thank you Father, in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen.

Please be seated.

POINT NO. 3: God SPOKE A WORD into the life of Gideon.

He called him “Mighty man of Valour”.

God, I am hiding from my enemies, and you are calling me “Mighty”.

That’s why we are going to cry to God very soon. We are going to ask Him to speak a WORD into our lives.

Because you know when God said: “Let there be Light; there was LIGHT!”

When the Almighty God says something; even if what He says doesn’t “Make Sense”; It will COME TO PASS!

Because in 2 Kings 4:8-17; when Elisha said to the Shunamite woman “you will have a son”. She didn’t believe; it didn’t make sense to her. But it happened!

WHY? Because in Roman 4:17; the Bible says “God calls those things that be not as though they were!”

In Psalms 33:8-9; the Bible says: “when God speaks, it is done!”

I want to speak in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ; to someone here tonight (or reading now): “It shall be WELL with you!” – Amen!

STORY NO. 3: Those of you who are older, who have been in the church for a while, you must have heard me share this with you.

When I was very, very small; going to the Primary School, with a plank for a slate. You would just cut a price of wood; paint it black; “that is your slate”. You take it to school to write, they will give you chalk to go and write A, B, C, D. And a lot of chalk would be on your face.

I was coming back from school one day, with the slate on my head, chalk all over my fact. And one elderly man saw me and said; “Senior Academician”. I ended up with a Ph.D in Mathematics.

And then in 1966, a Prophet was living in our house and I had just started a working. Then I decided to give him something; because he was very poor. He looked at me and said; “one day, you will be going Abroad like people go to the market”. At that time, I had never been to Lagos. Today, you can see what is happening.

.. When God speaks, it is done!

PRAYER NO. 3: Stand on your feet. Say: Father, in the Mighty Name of Jesus; SPEAK A WORD into my life. Whatever You call me, that’s what I will become. (Go ahead now).

Lord, speak a Word into my life, speak Victory into my life, speak Prosperity into my life, speak Greatness into my. I declare, Moses Durodola/Titilayomi Ajayi: You are successful, and I will succeed; you will excel, and I will excel. Speak a Word into my life Lord. Speak a Word into DMC; And we will go places; breakthrough and break forth. In Jesus’ Name.

In Jesus Mighty Name, we have prayed – Amen!

In the Name that is above every other names, I speak into your life; “It shall be WELL with you”. In shall be well with you. In that Name that is above all other names; in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, from now on, You will succeed, you will excel, you will succeed. So shall it be in Jesus Name – Amen.

Please be seated.

POINT NO. 4: By the Time you now read, the story to Judges 6:25-27; God told this Mighty man of Valour, who was going to deliver his Nation from their enemies. He said “there is an IDOL in your father’s house; that Idol must be destroyed tonight”.

I decree concerning everyone of you; every plant that God has not planted in your family shall be rooted up today – Amen!

And so, Gideon was afraid but he knew he has had a Divine Encounter and that night he destroyed the Idols of his father’s house.

You see, when light arrives, darkness must depart.

In 1 Kings 17:8-16; when Elijah arrived in the house of the widow of Zarephath, an end came to Poverty.

In 2 Kings 4:1-7; Elijah destroyed Destitution in the house of the widow.

When you have a Divine Encounter, and the light of God begins to shine upon your life; “you will become a DESTROYER OF DARKNESS”.

Everything that has to do with darkness; when you have a Divine Encounter, you are not just Blessed; You become a BLESSING!

He said to Gideon; “I will use you to bless your Nation”.

I repeat that to somebody here tonight (or reading now); In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, you will become a blessing to your family. You will become a blessing to your church. You will become a blessing to Nigeria. You will become a blessing to many Nations of the world – Amen!

STORY NO. 4: Years ago, when we were still in the first Auditorium; a woman came to me from Oyo State (Nigeria), and asked for prayers. She said “things had been very hard”, Poverty on a level that is difficult to describe”. She wanted prayers.

I prayed for her and said, “you can go now, God bless you”.

She said, I can’t go. I said, what again now? She said “I don’t have the money to travel back”. I don’t have enough for transportation. So, I took the little money I had (I was much poorer than now at that time).

In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ; I will never be poor again! And you will NEVER BE POOR AGAIN!!

I took the little money I had and I gave it to her. And I found myself saying; that “this money I am giving to give you will not finish”.

She thanked me and she left. Few months later, it was time for our Convention; she brought a while Cow for the convention.

Up till today, the money has not finished.

PRAYER POINT NO. 4: I want you to stand on your feet, and lift up your voice to the Almighty God, loud and clear and say: Father, don’t just bless me, MAKE ME A BLESSING! (Open your mouth now and talk to God).

Lord God Almighty, make me a Destroyer of Poverty; use me to Destroy Poverty in the lives of men. There are many people who are suffering. Lord, make me a blessing. A Destroyer of Darkness, make me a Destroyer of Suffering.

Thank you Daddy, in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen.

And so shall it be in Jesus Name – Amen.

You will become a Blessing, whatever you touch now, will be blessed – Amen.

Please be seated.

POINT NO. 5: One day, Gideon was hiding, by the following morning he wasn’t hiding anymore. Because the whole Nation now gathered – who destroyed our idols.

.. He has become “Attention of the whole Nation!”

I decree to somebody here today (or reading); before you die, you will become “Attention of the whole Nation”.

And you see, when God Locates you, when He Visits you, and He speaks a Word into your life. And He turns you to a Destroyer of Darkness; HE BRINGS YOU OUT OF HIDING.

For years, Elijah was hiding; today, hiding in the Brook Cherith. Tomorrow, hiding in the widow’s hose, et cetera.

Then in 1Kings 18: 1-46; and the man who was hiding before, came into the open: Boldly gathering together ALL false Prophets on one side and he, a Prophet of God on another side.

… And God answered his prayers by FIRE!

In 1 Samuel 16:11-13 that we mentioned earlier on; David was anointed to be king, but he was kept in hiding. After they anointed him king, he went back to taking care of the sheep. Great Anointing!

In 1 Samuel 17 (you can read the whole chapter); God brought David out of hiding.

There are many people here, with great anointing, great potentials, great abilities. The Almighty God has already called you “The Light of the world”. And yet, we are not seeing any signs yet.

Ooh! In the Name that is above every other names, from tonight, you will SHINE! – Amen.

STORY NO. 5: I will remind you of another story and then we are going to pray. You have heard the story before;

We had a Programme like this at the Headquarters, and God spoke. He said “there is somebody in the crowd, that it is the mother who is not allowing her to marry.” But if the mother would not allow her to marry, the mother would be buried within a week. The girl got home, told the mother.

The following day, the mother came to my office, very angry. “You are the kind of terrible Prophet telling little girls, some lies”.

I said what’s the problem Ma? She said the daughter told her “I gave her only one week to die because I am not allowing her to marry”. I said, me? I didn’t mention your name.

I asked the girl, did I say a thing like that? I never said so ooh! She said, is that so? I said yes. She said I should ask the girl to go out. The girl went out.

She said, Pastor, is it true that the person will die? I said; it’s not you, am not mentioning your name. But whosoever is not allowing the daughter to marry, within one (1) week, would be buried. She said, well, not that I don’t want her to marry, but she is the one taking care of me.

I said, that is not a big problem. I can talk to the husband, they will keep taking care of you. She said, if that be the case, she can marry. Within weeks, somebody came to the girl and said, God says you are to be my wife.

PRAYER POINT NO. 5: Stand on your feet. You are going to pray this prayer with every effort that you have, and say:

Father, in the Mighty Name of Jesus; whatever is covering my Glory, DESTROY it tonight. I know that there are several things I could do. I know that there are several things I could become; but something is covering my Glory. Whatever is covering my Glory must be destroyed.

Thank You Father, Glory be to Your Holy Name. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen.

Whatever is not allowing your Light to shine shall be removed tonight. (Amen)

… Please be seated!

IN CONCLUSION; the One who Visited Gideon is here tonight. How do I know? He said: “Where two (2) or three (3) are gathered together in my Name; I will be there”.

And He is giving an Invitation to those who have not known Him, to come and meet Him. He said: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

It is sin that bring back your Glory. You have to let His Blood wash away your sins, so that you can begin to SHINE!

ALTAR CALL:

So if you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, I will count from one (1) to five (5). You must come and stand before me here; then I will pray for the Salvation and then we will close the Meeting..

… Am counting Now!

Come, the Light of the World is waiting. He says; “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”. Now, the Lord is calling you. Let Him save your souls; let His Blood wash away your sins, and your Glory will begin to show forth.

Hurry up/3X. If you are on the way, come and God will answer your prayers. Keep coming. Amen!

Now those of you who are already infront and those of you on the way; Cry to Jesus Christ and say Lord; please save my soul tonight. Use your Blood to wash away my sins and I will serve you for the rest of my life.

The rest of us; let’s stretch our hands towards these our people, these our brothers and sisters and intercede for them, and pray that the One who saved our souls will save their own souls also. Pray for them; pray that God will wash away their sins and that He will receive them into the family of God. Pray that everything will become New for them.

Let’s cry to the Almighty God for these people; pray for them Brethren. Pray for them/2X

Thank you Jesus, Glory be to God. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen.

PRAYER FOR SALVATION:

Saviour I want to say Thank You very much for Your Words. Thank You very much for all these people who have come forward to surrender their lives to You. Please Lord, receive them, in Jesus’ Name. Save their souls; let your Blood wash away their sins.

And I am praying Lord God Almighty that today, you would write their names in the “Book of Life”. You will accept them into the family of God, and let their Light begin to SHINE!.

In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!

Now, those of you who have come forward, I want to rejoice with you. Because from now on, by the Grace of God; I will be praying for you. So am going to need your names, your address and your prayer request.

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 people are waiting to collect the information I need, and then they will bring you back very quickly.

God bless you; you can begin to go now. God bless you/3 X

If you are clapping for Jesus, clap very well. Thank You Jesus, thank You God, thank You Jesus. Amen!
