… Open your mouth and Worship the King of kings.
Thank You Lord for making us to witness another Service like this. We say be Thou Exalted in the Name of Jesus. Daddy even as we go into Your Words, we pray that You speak to us expressly in the Name of Jesus. Our lives will not remain the same after tonight in Jesus’ Name.
May we SHINE indeed in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
Can somebody Shout another Hallelujah – Hallelujah.
I want to say a big thank you to our Daddy in the Lord, Pastor E.A Adeboye and Mummy Folu Adeboye. Thank you sir and ma.
I want to appreciate all the Pastors in Redeemed Christian Church of God. Thank you so much for the opportunity given to me to stand here, I want to bless God most especially for the Grace to be here to bring His Words to dignitaries like you.
… Can you celebrate God in your life. Amen!
BIBLE TEXT: JEREMIAH 1:5
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, [and] I ordained thee a Prophet unto the Nations.”
God was declaring about Jeremiah here. He said before he was formed in the belly, He said He knew him.
The same Words is coming to somebody here tonight before you came forth, God knew you and He sanctified thee and ordained thee as a Prophet in your Generation.
Can somebody Shout hallelujah – Hallelujah.
Now, What does it mean to SHINE?
It means to be whom God has declared you to be from the beginning of the Earth;
It means for you to align yourself to God’s Spoken Words that has gone forth before time over your life.
When we say someone SHINES indeed, that means such a person excels, he prospers ; Praise God!
Now listen to me, it is not an immunity for you not to Shine. It’s an error for us not to Shine as Christians because our Father Shines, so we must also Shine.
And for you to Shine does not mean that you are proud – Hallelujah.
Isaiah 60:1 says: “Arise, Shine; for thy light is come, and the Glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.”
The Scripture here is commanding us to SHINE.
Tell your neighbour Arise and Shine – ARISE, SHINE!
To SHINE means to Overcome.
This simply means to break forth against all odds no matter what the opposition is, we will rise always, we will shine.
John 1:5 says: “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
This scripture is telling us about the Light of Jesus. Jesus broke forth as Light and darkness couldn’t comprehend Him.
Somebody here is breaking forth as light in the Name of Jesus.
Darkness cannot comprehend us as believers, we carry the same Power Jesus carry.
To shine again means to be an IMPACT in our Generation.
Matthew 5:16 says: “Let your light so Shine before men, that they may see your Good Works, and Glorify your Father which is in Heaven.”
… We must break forth as light.
Now to come and break forth means to bring message to our Generation.
The Scriptures says we are the SALT of the Earth. Without Salt there is no meaning in our world and so the world is waiting for you and I to manifest.
To bring light to our Generation, we must bring the Good News of Christ to the people around us. We must show them the Truth because the Truth is what will set us free.
To Shine also is to be UNSTOPPABLE.
Acts 19:20 says: “So Mightily grew the Word of God and prevailed.”
I love this Scripture so much. We have the same mind of God, we prevailed.
In Ephesus, the Words of the Lord grew so mightily that nothing could stop the Word of God.
And the same Potential that the Words of God carries; the same Potential you carry, the same Power you carry, everywhere we go, we prevailed as the Words of God, we manifest, we Grow, we Dominate.
Tell your neighbour, you will Dominate – YOU WILL DOMINATE.
To Shine also means to WALK IN AUTHORITY.
Whenever a man is intimidated of by the devil, it’s not God faults. When you are scared of the enemies, it’s not God fault because God has already handed over to us VICTORY IN JESUS.
Ephesians 2:6 says: “And hath raised [us] up together, and made [us] sit together in heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus:”
Beloveth, you are seated with Jesus in Heavenly realm and so the same Authority that God has given to Jesus, that same Authority has been given to you.
Praise the Lord.
HOW THEN DO WE SHINE?
How do we shine as a believers?
Praise the Living Jesus!
1. WE MUST BE A CARRIER OF GOD GLORY:
Can you tap your neighbour and say: ‘ You must be a Carrier of God’s Glory.
The Glory of God is the Nature of God Himself. The Glory of God is the attributes of God, It’s the characteristics of God.
I described it as the “Divine Beauty”.
Revelation 21:23 says: “And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the Glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof.”
Can you see that!
The Scripture is telling us that in Heaven, it is the Glory of God that lighten it. Which makes us to understand one thing; that the Glory of God has the Potential to shine.
Now we want to Shine.
To Shine we must carry God’s Glory because the Glory of God has the Ability to Shine.
We will begin to Shine as children of lights.
Praise the living Jesus!
So tell your neighbour, ‘you must be a Carrier of God’s Glory’.
There are some things that are peculiar to Glory;
I. GLORY CANNOT BE HIDDEN:
John 1:5 says: “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
When you carry God’s Glory, you cannot be hidden, anywhere you go, you are spotted as light.
The Glory of God showcases you. With this, you don’t beg for position, the Glory of God brings you forth into LIMELIGHT.
Hallelujah! Glory cannot be hidden.
II. Glory Transcend the Spiritual and often break forth into the Natural, overruling the laws of Nature, giving way to the WILL OF GOD.
Praise Master Jesus!
Glory transcend the Spiritual.
Listen to me, Glory is a Spiritual thing that is true but Glory doesn’t remain alone in the Spiritual realm It breaks forth the Natural.
Glory manifest in the Physical that is why in some point in the life of Jesus, we saw Him walking on water.
We saw Jesus raising the death because the Glory of God was over Him.
Now, are you going through something? And when you carry the Glory of God because of the potential that is inside of the Glory. You can declare those things as peanut though as they were.
III. GLORY IS MAGNETIC IN NATURE.
Glory attracts every kind of Good things.
Are you looking for favour, blessing? What you need to do is to carry the Glory of God. Like we see in Isaiah 60:3: “And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.”
Can you see that, the moment you carry the Glory, men naturally run to you because the God’s Glory attract Good things.
We could see our daddy in the Lord as a perfect example. How kings would come to him and say pray for me, how presidents of Nation would come to him and kneel before him because the God Glory is over his life.
Men would come to your risen in the Name of Jesus.
IV. GLORY IS CONTAGIOUS IN NATURE:
Glory can go VIRAL.
We know some diseases can go viral and be contagious. Likewise, Glory can go viral as well.
We can see this in the life of Joseph how the household of Potiphar was blessed because he lived in their house. Why? it was because of the Glory of God.
The same with Jacob, the household of Laban was blessed because Jacob dwells in their house.
Genesis 30:27 says: “And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thine eyes, [tarry: for] I have learned by experience that the LORD hath blessed me for thy sake.”
Laban told Jacob he didn’t want him to leave his house. He said I have learned by the Divination that my household was blessed as a result of your Presence.
Can you tell your neighbour: ‘You must carry Glory’.
HOW THEN CAN A MAN CARRY THE GLORY – HOW?
John 15:5 says: “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.”
1. I say you must stay with the SOURCE.
You must do what? – Stay with the Source.
When you stay in God as we see in John 15:5, we produce more fruits.
How many of us has experienced when Power Holding Company Limited (PHCN as it is called in Nigeria) disconnect your power supply because of inability to settle your bills. When that happened, immediately your cable is disconnected and you would not have power supply anymore.
The same thing is with us. In the journey of the Christian race, when we disconnect ourselves from God, we no longer Shine.
For you to Shine because you have been born to Shine, you must stay in God.
Tell your neighbour: You must stay in God.
Moses discovered this, in Exodus 33:18 – “And he said, I beseech thee, show me thy Glory.”
He knew that he just has to stay in God to carry His Glory so that he could continually Shine.
He knew he could never prosper in Ministry without God’s Glory.
So he came to the Mount, he came to dwell in God’s Presence, he came to stay in His Presence and he cried unto the Lord to show him His Glory.
Did you know what God did? God said I will show you My Glory.
The only thing you have to do is to stay connected to me and indeed Moses stayed with God and God did revealed Himself to Moses and the moment God revealed Himself to him, he became the carrier of God’s Glory.
Praise the living Jesus!
Tell someone, ‘… stay connected to God’.
WHAT CAN STOP SOMEONE FROM SHINING?
There are some things that can stop us from Shinning.
We are being born to Shine. I say identity crises is a great thief of a believer and of any child of God.
1Peter 2:9 says: “But ye [are] a chosen Generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”
Can you see that, God has declared us to be a chosen Generation.
Is somebody here; are you afraid, timid?
That is not God’s Words for you. God said you are a chosen Generation, Royal Priesthood, a Peculiar people.
Praise Master Jesus – Hallelujah.
So we are Royalty and we must accept the truth of God’s Words for us indeed to manifest and to Shine. We must accept the truth of God’s Words and lived in that reality.
When you failed to do so, you will never Shine. But when we receive God’s Truth and align ourselves to the same, then we would begin to Shine.
WHAT ARE THE SECRETS OF PEOPLE THAT SHINE:
There are some secrets;
1. They are people who received God’s Word and obey completely.
Genesis 22:2 says: “And he said, Take now thy son, thine only [son] Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.”
God was speaking to Abraham here, can you see! God was about testing Abraham and He gave him an instruction and said: Go and sacrifice your beloved son unto Me. For that singular obedience, all of us were blessed as a result.
Praise the Living Jesus!
We must obey God’s Instruction.
2. These are people who exercise FAITH.
Matthew 9:20-21 says:
20. And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind [him], and touched the hem of his garment:”
21. For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.”
Is there anyone here who is carrying one ailment or the other? I want to encourage you to believe in God and exercise Faith.
Listen, Faith will bring that thing you are Trusting God for and in this Service today, you will receive your Miracles in the Name of Jesus – Amen.
3. They NEVER GIVE UP (2ce).
Genesis 32:24-28 says:
24. And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.
25. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.
26. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me
27. And he said unto him, What [is] thy name? And he said, Jacob.
28. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.”
This Scriptures told us the story of Jacob how he wrestled with the Angel of God.
You know when there was Prophecy over the life of Jacob from the birth and he knew that the Prophecy is not coming forth but he realised that his life was not showing forth for the Prophecy.
May be there is somebody like that here. That the Words of God has gone forth over your life and you are not seeing the manifestation yet. I want you never to give up like Jacob. I want you to come to God, tell Him that He alone can launch you forth and be resilient, never give up, never allow the devil rules over you and take your place in God and you will overtake in the Name of Jesus – Amen.
3. They CARRY A RENEWED MIND.
3John 1:2 says: “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
Listen to me dearly Beloved, the Scripture is telling us that we cannot prosper beyond what we think in our heart or what we see in our heart even as our Soul prosperth.
You must from today begin to take God’s thought and begin to make Him yours. Begin to think over His Words.
Jeremiah 29:11 says: “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
The Lord will give you an expected end in the Name of Jesus. His thoughts towards you are thoughts of Peace, thoughts of good things and they are not thoughts of evil.
Do not let the devil rob you of God’s blessings. His thoughts towards you are of Peace.
So beloved, take God’s Words and when you take God’s Words, begin to run with it, you will begin to Shine.
4. Lastly, They are people that have SEEN JESUS AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOUR.
People that Shine are the people that have received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Personal Saviour.
You can’t Shine without Jesus. You must accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. He is our key and our Access into a Victorious life.
We are born to Shine but Jesus is our Access.
John 14:6 says: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
I want to implored everyone here today, peradventure you are seated here you have not given your life to Jesus, there is an opportunity for you in the house today as our father in the Lord come forth and then Altar Call is made,
I want to implored you to take that bold step of Faith and come forward to receive Jesus as your Lord and personal Saviour because that is the beginning of you shinning. Hallelujah!
Can we rise to our feet (2x) as we take this prayers:
1. Father, speak to me always and give me the Grace to obey You like Abraham. Father speak to me always in the Name of Jesus and I decree that your Words will always come to me. I will take your Words and run with it. I receive the Great Spirit to obey in the Name of Jesus.
… This is our prayer tonight that you release your Words into our lives and the Grace to obey, we receive in the Name of Jesus.
2. Father, help me remain connected to You so that I will constantly be a carrier of Your Glory. Father help me to remain connected to you. Daddy help me to remain connected to You so that i will be a Carrier of Your Glory.
Daddy we give You all the Praises, thank You for Your Words that has come forth, thank You for revealing the secrets of those that Shine to us. Thank You God even as for tonight, we will begin to SHINE indeed in the Name of Jesus.
As we begin to take Your Words and run with it, we will begin to Shine in the Name of Jesus. As we stay connected to You and behold Your Glory, rest upon us in the Name of Jesus and we will begin to Shine as light indeed.
In Jesus Name we have prayed – Amen !
Can we jam our hands together to the King of Kings!
