THEME: SWIMMING IN GLORY
FIRST MESSAGE BY: DEACONESS YEWANDE DIMEHIN
TEXT: ISAIAH 6:3
DATE: 4TH JANUARY, 2019
Do I have grateful people in the house tonight? I want you to rise on your feet and give God a big shout of hallelujah tonight.
… Let somebody praise the LORD – Hallelujah!
I want us to lift our voices this evening and bless the One that loves us so much and has kept us alive till today. I want us to give Him Praise; I want us to give Him Glory. He has being our help from Ages past. The One who never fail; the Unchangeable Changer. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Holy One of Israel, the Glorious God.
Let’s lift up our voices this evening and bless Him; and bless His Holy Name, as we sing this SONG:
Glorious God, Beautiful King, Excellent God; we bow before your throne/ 2 times
Bow before your Throne,
Worship at your feet.
Bow before your Throne;
You are the Glorious God/2 times.
OPENING PRAYER: Father, what is man that you are mindful of him? What is the son of man that you visit him? Lord you have only made him a little lower than Elohim. Father, you have crowned him with Glory and with Honour.
Lord we thank you for being our Creator. The Father of Glory, the King of kings. Lord we are gathered here for you tonight. We want you to impart us; so that when we leave here today, we can say you have already launched us into SWIMMING IN GLORY!
Thank you Father because you will touch everyone tonight. Lord we thank you because will not go the same way we have come. Thank you Father for answered prayers.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
Do I have expectant people in the house tonight?
There is a saying that “Expectation is the mother of Manifestation”.
I know someone is going to manifest the Glory of God here today and forever, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
I want to thank God, and thank my father in the Lord, for this great privilege. It’s a rare one and am not taking it for granted. It is my prayer that God will continue to make him swim in Greater Glory, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
I have been asked to speak on the Topic: “SWIMMING IN GLORY”.
And my text shall be taken from Isaiah 6:3 – “And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of Hosts: the whole earth is full of His Glory.”
This the Angel of God bearing witness tonight and concerning 2019; that we are going to Swim in the Glory of God.
This simply means that, when God looks down in 2019, He is going to see His children Swimming in Glory. And I believe that is Moses Durodola/Titilayomi Ajayi of The Discovery Media Crew. I thought I would hear a better Amen – AMEN!
What is GLORY?
In Hebrew, Glory is the word “Kabod”. Which means ‘heavy’. It means ‘full weight’. It means ‘the full essence’. It means ‘true nature’. It means ‘the full essence of something’. Glory is ‘the full expression of God’s Nature in man’.
When God created man, He created him for Glory and Honour.
The first man to swim in Glory was Adam. God released His Glory on him; because he was wearing the Glory of God.
What of his brain?
His (Adam’s) brain spoke of the Glory of God. That is why the animals that were brought to him, he singlehandedly named them. And their names remain till today.
Glory is ‘the full essence of God’s Nature in man’; man was clothed in Glory.
2 Peter 1:3 also says that “Glory is the call of every man”.
Don’t let the devil deceive you; don’t let your present situation put you on the ground. I want you to understand that ‘Glory is your Destiny’.
Glory is your portion. Please do no look less of yourself from tonight henceforth.
As soon as the Glory departed from man. As soon as sin came into the life of Adam; the Glory departed. That’s what happened! There was no Glory on him. That is what is called ‘Ichabod’ (meaning the Glory has departed).
I am praying for someone here tonight or reading; that the glory of the Lord will NEVER depart from you – Amen!
The departure of the Glory of God brings emptiness. It brought shame unto humanity. But thank For for the Lord Jesus Christ; the second Adam. The greatest manifestation of the Glory of God, who came to redeem mankind unto Glory.
I want someone to lift up his or her voice tonight and say: Thank you Jesus – THANK YOU JESUS!
That is why the Scripture says that: “He is the Hope of Glory!”
John 1:14B says: “…and we beheld his Glory, the Glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of Grace and Truth.”
… Jesus came to restore that Glory unto mankind.
What does it means to SWIM?
To swim means to navigate. It means to propel through a medium.
That is why I am sure that someone tonight would propel from the Valley unto the high Mountains. I am sure that someone tonight would propel from shame and will begin to Swim in Glory. I am certain tonight that someone would propel from Fruitlessness to Fruitfulness, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
Swimming in Glory – It means to fully manifest the Nature of God. And I want you to note this evening “that there is no Swimming in Glory without Discovery of Purpose”.
Many people, they are where they are today because: “They are in another man’s Field”.
I want you to discover Purpose of God for your life this year; if you have not discovered it.
And I also want you to understand that: “Every Year has it’s own Purpose before God”.
I know that the Purpose of God this year would be to Glorify everyone of us, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
And who can know the Purpose of a man better than the Manufacturer; better than the Creator?
Please visit God and ask Him; if you do not know what your Purpose is. So that you begin to Flourish.
And I decree that from tonight onward; we will begin to flourish, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
What does it mean to Swim in Glory?
Genesis 1:28 explains this: “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
What does it mean to Swim in Glory?
1. It is to be BLESSED of God.
That’s what we saw in Genesis 1:28 – “and God blessed them”.
Our father in the Lord has always told us that there is no prayer greater than ‘God Bless You!’
So, I am praying for someone here tonight (or reading) that God will bless you!
It is the blessing of God that makes rich and added no sorrow unto you. If the Lord blesses yes; then who can curse you? Who can be against you? – Nobody!
… “The Lord blessed them”. You will be blessed tonight in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
2. Secondly, to Swim in Glory is to be FRUITFUL.
And to be fruitful means to be Productive’. To bring forth your kind; both Physically and Spiritually.
That is why I have joy in my heart tonight that, as many that have being trusting God for the fruits of the womb for a very long time; the Lord will visit them this year, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen. They will carry their own children, and men will celebrate with them in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
It is also to be fruitful Spiritual. To be fruitful Spiritually means to have children in Christ. This is simply talking about soul winning – telling us that it is a serious matter.
And God said that the tree that is not fruitful will be hewn down. This year, even as you Swim in Glory; I want you to determine to be fruitful this year and win souls unto God. God hates fruitlessness. That’s why Jesus had to curse that Fig Tree.
… May we be Fruitful this year in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
3. The third thing about swimming in glory is to MULTIPLY. And this is a greater measure of fruitfulness.
Am a Mathematician, by God’s Grace. Any fruitfulness has to do with an Arithmetic Progression. That’s simply ‘an increase by addition’. But when we talk about ‘Multiplication’; it has to do with Geometric Progression – which is ‘Addition by Exponent’. Addition by Power!
I decree concerning someone here tonight (or reading), that you will multiply in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen!
And I have also discovered that the greatest tool for multiplication is the Gospel. The greatest Tool for multiplication is the Gospel; which is the tool of our father in the Lord.
Many of us, if they have not preached the Gospel to us, maybe we would not be here tonight or reading this message. But due to the Gospel that had being preached; many Pastors have emerged. Many children of God has emerged. And they are everywhere; saying the Good news of Jesus Christ.
… May we multiply this year, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
4. The Fourth thing about Swimming in Glory, is to REPLENISH.
That was His thought for man. That was His original intention; that men will refill the earth. That men will renew the earth. That men would add value to the earth.
And I am praying for someone (here or reading) that, that idea that will add value to this world, this year the Lord will drop it into your heart, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
Many of us do not know that, that breakthrough we are waiting for is simply in the ideas that God will deliver unto our hearts. Please when God delivers it unto your hearts, work on it and we would replenish the earth.
We are to add value to the earth. That’s why the Scripture calls us ‘the Salt of the earth’. We are to add flavour! That’s why as soon as the Saints of God disappear from this earth: as soon as Rapture occur; the earth will be in chaos.
So note that it is because of the righteous ones that the earth is still in shape. Please add value to the earth this year. And with that, you will know that you are Swimming in Glory.
5. To Swim in Glory is to SUBDUE.
And to subdue means ‘to bring under control’.
That’s why am praying for someone here tonight or reading this message, that every force that has put you below; from this time henceforth, you will be above them, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen. You would overcome them, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen. You would be on top of them, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
To subdue means to be on Top. It pains God that when His children are in some places, they don’t have mouth to talk. It must end this year.
It means to Reign in a domain. Please find your domain this year; find your place of expression this year, and reign in that Arena.
Psalm 136:2 says that: “God is the God of gods”.
What this implies is simply that: “on earth, God has ordained us to be gods”.
Psalms 82:6 – I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
He has ordained us as gods, and we are gods in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
That means sickness should no longer dwell in our bodies; diseases should no longer fly around us. He has ordained us as gods.
So whatever we command to go this year must go. Whatever we command to leave this year must leave, in Jesus Name – Amen.
The Scripture tells us that He is the King of kings. Meaning that He reigns over kings.
That means you are a king; you have a domain. He is the Lord of lords. Meaning that He is the Lord over lords. You are a lord on earth.
Please don’t let us live under anymore. It pains God.
What He wants to see this year is His children Swimming in Glory. Because that is the original design of God. So we will be Swimming in Glory, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
KEYS TO SWIMMING IN GLORY.
I want us to take these and begin to work on them this year. And we would see tremendous changes in our lives in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
1. The first one is to ‘Become a Friend of the King of Glory’.
Are you here or reading this message; you have not surrendered your life to Jesus? Ah! You are walking in shame, you do not know. You are walking in disgrace, you do not know. You are cheap before the devil and he can do anything to you.
Before tonight runs out; as our father in the Lord is going to make the Altar call, please I want you to run forward and surrender your life to Jesus Christ. So that you can begin to Swim in Glory.
Psalms 24:7 – if you make Him your Friend, Doors and Gates will open for you on their own accord this year, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
Make the King of Glory your Senior Partner; Make Him your Ally, make Him your Friend this year and you will see Him begin to do Great and Mighty things in your life in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
2. The second Key is to ‘Spend Quality Time in His Presence Daily, this year’. Spend quality time in His presence daily this year.
Sometimes, we go out and it seems that we are rubbished; it is because the Glory is not showing forth.
Psalms 91:1 says: He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
May we abide under the shadow of the Almighty this year, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
Meaning that anywhere you show up this year, the Glory of the Lord will show up with you. Men that ordinarily were not supposed to favour you, they will begin to favour you.
Please spend quality time in His presence tonight. And I can see the heart of God that is ready to pour out some things. Because He has seen our sufferings, He has seen our pains. And we know He has remembered us this year. He wants to pour out some things to us; and these things will not come except we spend ‘quality time in His Presence’.
This year, spend quality time in His presence on a daily basis.
3. The third Key says: ‘Looking into the Perfect Law of Liberty’.
James 1:25 says: The perfect law of liberty is the Word of God.
I make bold to say that: “What God can do, His Word can also do”.
Anything that God can do, His Word can also do. But many at times, we do not search the Scripture.
We see our father in the Lord trying to solve his Ph.D Thesis for a very long time. But because of the Word of God that he studies; God showed him how He parted the Red Sea.
I cannot imagine! Praise the Lord – Hallelujah!
Unimaginable things will happen this year for good, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
As we spend time with the Word of God, it guarantees our Dominion. It is the Word of Liberty! It is what can liberate our minds. Some of us, we have the mind of mediocrity.
But when you spend time with the Word of God, you begin to see yourself in the Light of God. You begin to see yourself in Glory. You understand that Glory is your Calling. You understand that when God created you, He created you, crowning you with Glory and Honour.
I pray for someone here tonight or reading this message; that you would Swim in Glory, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
4. The fourth Key says: ‘Launch out in Faith’.
1 John 5:4, it says: “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
John the Beloved was the one that wrote this Scripture. And do you know what? Of all the Apostles of Jesus Christ, that were brutally killed; he (John the Beloved) was the only one death could not swallow.
Because the Scripture says that: “this is the victory that overcomes the world; even our Faith!” They threw him into boiling oil, but the oil could not consume him. Because he is a man of great Faith.
This year, the Lord is saying to you that you should launch out in great faith. It is only a crook that does something the same way and expect a different result. May we not be crooks this year in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
Many of us had found ourselves in the valley of life and we are crying.
When you cry, your eyes become blinded; you don’t see the things ahead.
Please dust up yourself this year; wipe off your face and launch out in faith. And I believe that, that thing you are trusting God for this year will surely come to pass, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
5. The fifth Key says: ‘Pay greater Sacrifice to God, pay greater sacrifice to humanity and sacrifice to self’.
King Solomon in 2 Kings 3:4; he offered a thousand burnt offering to God. And because of that sacrifice, God looked unto him and said: please ask me what you want me to do for you. And he said: “just give me wisdom in other to govern these your people aright”.
And God told him: “aside of wisdom, I will so bless you”.And God did that unto him, that during his time they never fought a war.
… Pay greater sacrifice this year. Don’t do things the usual way; it’s a New Year!
Pay greater sacrifice to humanity. A good example of this is Jesus Christ. And when He did this, God gave Him a Name that is greater than every other names. He left His Glory in Heaven and He came in form of a man. He came, He died for the sin of the world. And after that, God gave Him a Name that is greater than every other names.
Pay greater sacrifice to yourself this year. Develop yourself. God hates stagnancy!
See to it that this year you improve yourself. You do the things that you have not done before because the strength of God is made available to you, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen!
In CONCLUSION; sin is the greatest enemy of Glory.
This year, choose to hate sin and love righteousness (Hebrew 1:9).
Isaiah 3:10; “Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.”
This year I Prophesy concerning someone; you will eat the fruit of your labour – Amen!
Some people might not be able to say Amen. Maybe their work is not a good one. But as many that have chosen in their heart, to live righteous this year henceforth; you will begin to Swim in Glory, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
As as the Lord ploughs you into Glory, please remember to return all the Glory to Him. Don’t forget King Nebuchadnezzar; because some of us suddenly, the Lord will do Great and Mighty things in our lives.
And it is going to be as if we are dreaming. You know the Scripture says in Psalms 126:1 – “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.” God wiped off their tears and filled their mouth with laughter.
Do I have people that God will fill their mouth with laughter this year?
I want you to rise up on your feet and begin to appreciate Him.
I want you to bless Him tonight and say: Father, I thank you because I know that I am a candidate of Glory. I will surely Swim in Glory this year – that men will see and Glorify my Father who us in heaven.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
I want us to lift our voices to God and say Father; I am ready to Swim in Glory. Help me, help me to be Fruitful; bless me Lord. Help me for replenish the earth. That idea I need to rule my world, release upon me this year. Help me to multiply. Those things I could not ordinarily do before; this year let me begin to do them, to the Praises and Glory of your Holy Name.
Lift up your voice and cry unto the Lord this evening. Talk to Him, that Father; I am ready to Swim in Glory, this year is my year of Glory. Because that is what you have created me to be. It’s my original Nature; I cannot allow the devil deceive me anymore. Father, I am ready; plough me into Glory. Help my inadequacies. Help me, in the Mighty Name of Jesus – Amen.
Talk to God this evening…..
Thanks so much for staying with us and reading all through.
… It is quite unfair to ascribed the Glory for a work you didn’t do by deliberately removing the name of the source of the work. In fact its a sin!
