1. By the Grace of God, the June Holy Ghost Service; we will be discussing SWIMMING IN GLORY – PART 6; subtitle: BORN TO SING GODS PRAISE.
The Month of June is the Month when we want to THANK the Almighty God for the first half of the Year 2019. Because as the Elders will tell you; if you show gratitude for what has been done for you in the past, then you expect more! So we want to thank God in June and the Theme will be: BORN TO GIVE GOD PRAISE.
I want to thank God for the Speakers tonight. I want to thank God for my daughter who did an excellent work; teaching us about what it means to be BORN TO WIN – Line upon line, precept upon precept; She did a thorough Teaching job. While she was preaching, in my Prayer Room, I was saying: there goes my girl!
… Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause for that wonderful, wonderful Presentation.
And then came the Evangelist (laughs). Glory be to God! He was so fast; I wish I were there to say: slow down a little, somebody is interpreting.
… That was beautiful; it was magnificent!
Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause for all these wonderful children.
Oh! I am delighted; my future is already guaranteed. I have glorious children: Children who can Teach, children who can Preach, children who can bring the fire of God down.
Let’s give the Lord another round of applause.
As usual tonight, as we take our BIBLE TEXT: ROMANS 8:31-39; the Bible says:
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Tonight we will be concentrating on Verse 37 – “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.”
Tell your neighbour: I am More than a Conqueror – I am More than a Conqueror.
But before we go to the “MEAT” of the Programme tonight, we will want to (as usual) give few minutes to those who are yet to surrender their lives to Jesus Christ.
We want to share with them the BASIC REASON(S) why they need to be Born Again URGENTLY (2ce).
… And that Basic Reason(s) is because THEY NEED PEACE!
And we will be talking about three (3) basic types of Peace that they must have urgently; and therefore surrender their lives to Jesus Christ tonight (and while reading).
1. The first kind of Peace is PEACE WITH GOD.
Why? Psalms 7:11 says: “God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.”
… Every sinner is in trouble because God is angry with the wicked everyday.
Proverbs 16:4 says: “The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.”
In other words, if you are a sinner and you are not running quickly to Jesus Christ; you have been made reserved for the day of evil.
Romans 5:1 however says; “Therefore being justified by faith, we have Peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”
The MOMENT you surrendered your life to Jesus Christ, you have Peace with God; the quarrel between you and God is over.
… Until then, God is angry with you on a daily basis.
2. The Second kind of Peace you must have urgently is PEACE IN GOD (2ce).
In John 16:33 Jesus Christ said that in this world you will have tribulations; but if you are in Him, you will have PEACE.
He said “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of Good Cheers; I have overcome the world.”
If a man is not in Christ, and you hear ALL the troubles happening all over the world; your heart will shake. But those of us who are in Christ, when we see the wars, the rumours of wars, the floods, the hurricanes, the fire outbreaks, we look forward and know that our Redemption is near.
We have Peace in God because we belong to Him.
In John 14:27; Jesus Christ Himself said: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
3. And the third kind of peace that you must have urgently; which you only get through Jesus Christ is called THE PEACE OF GOD.
Philippians 4:7 says, “And the Peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”.
It is the Peace that can keep your heart and mind stable, no matter what is happening: problems right and left, a lot of bad news everywhere.
But if you have the Peace of God; you will remain STABLE! Your blood pressure will remain normal. Everything will remain cool because the Peace of God passes all understanding.
Peace with GOD that settles your quarrel with God: no more anger of the Almighty God facing you on a daily basis; The Peace in GOD and the Peace of GOD – You can have ALL three (3) when you surrendered your life to Jesus Christ.
Because the Bible says in Roman 14:17: “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”
So if you give your life to Jesus Christ, you will begin to enjoy PEACE.
It doesn’t matter what is happening, you will be at rest. Because you know that there is no more quarrel between you and God. You will know that He has given you Peace that is ruling your heart. That you have the Peace that the world cannot understand.
But as long as you refused to surrender your life to Him, the Peace will elude you.
And so am going to ask those of you who are here (or reading) and have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus Christ and you want to do so. You want to have the Peace with God; you want to have Peace in God; you want to have the Peace of God. I will ask you to come forward very quickly so I can pray for your Salvation. And you can begin to enjoy the Peace of God that passes all understanding.
Am going to count from one (1) to ten (10) – I know some of you are very far away. So you have to move very, very fast. By the time I say ten (10); if you are not already standing before me, I will assume that either you are already saved or you have made up your mind: you DON’T NEED the Peace of God.
… Am counting now!
When you come to Jesus Christ, you have come to the Prince of Peace. And He will make His Peace available to you.
… And those of you clapping for Jesus, you will never lack Peace. Any hands that is clapped for Jesus Christ can never wither.
Come to Him and let your Peace begin. Hurry up! I can see those of you in the Old Arena (I know you are a bit far from the Altar); but hurry up the Lord is waiting for you.
And those of you in the New Arena hurry up, because we are already at the last count down. Thank you very much!
Now those of you in front and those of you who are on the way; talk to the Almighty God now: Ask Him to please save your soul. Please tell God: I don’t want You to be angry with me anymore. I have come to surrender my life unto you. Please Lord God Almighty I want to be at Peace with you.
Cry unto Him: I have come to surrender my life unto you, I want to enjoy Peace with You. I want to enjoy the Peace that is in you. And I want to enjoy the Peace that comes from You. I want to be at Peace with You, and I want to be at Peace in every area of my life. Save my soul oh Lord, and I will serve You for the rest of my life.
Let’s stretch forth our hands to them; those of us who remain and wish these our new brothers and sisters salvation from the Almighty God. That the One who saved our souls will save their own souls too. Let’s go ahead and call on the Almighty God for them.
Let the Counsellors hurry up and attend to these people; because we will soon be praying for Salvation.
Thank you Father. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
PRAYER FOR SALVATION
Our Father and out God, we just want to say Thank You: Thank You for your Words and Thank You for these people who have responded to the Altar Call.
They have come forward Lord; Please receive them; save their souls; Let your Blood wipe away their sins. Please receive them into the family of God. From now on, anytime they call on You; answer them by Fire.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen.
PART TWO (2)
Thank You Lord!
ROMAN 8:37 says: We are More than Conquerors.
We are created equal – all men are created equal. But we are not BORN EQUAL.
… Created equal but not born equal!
The day the baby of an Elephant is born, that very day it is already bigger than the RAT.
It’s that correct!
Elephant is a creature of God, the Rat is a creature of God. They were both created equal, but they are not born equal.
The Elders have a saying. They say that the Elephant never gives birth to a dwarf. The baby of an Elephant must be like an Elephant – It’s a settled matter.
Some people are BORN TO WIN; some people are born to lose.
Roman 9:10-15; two (2) children, twins in the womb of the same mother. They were not yet born, they haven’t done anything good or evil. And God has already said: Jacob I love, Esau I hate – before they were born!
… One was BORN TO WIN; the other was Born to LOSE.
Is any Winner here in the house today (or reading)? YES – DMC Media Crew Members.
If you are BORN TO WIN let me hear you shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Roman 9:17 says; “For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my Power in thee, and that my Name might be declared throughout all the earth.”
Pharaoh was born to be a loser. Oh, he became big, he became a great King, he was even considered the Ruler of the whole world at that time. But God said: at the end, am going to drown you; to show the world that there is somebody called the KING of kings.
Some are born to lose, some are BORN TO WIN. Which one (1) of the reasons why everybody should come to Christ. Because even if you were born to lose and you come to Christ; the story will change.
Because the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold (how many things)? all things are become new.”
… How many things? ALL THINGS!
Every true child of God in this house (or reading), let me hear you shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Now, (and I hope you will pay more attention) because this is one (1) of those nights “Destinies HANG in the Balance”. And we are not here to joke tonight.
BORN TO WIN means BORN TO FIGHT (laughter all over the Auditorium)
… Am laughing because there is an Elders’ proverb that says: if a mouth spoke and the thunder rumbles; and he says: God has confirmed what I have just said (laughs again).
One more time, if you are a Winner in the house let me hear you shout hallelujah – HALLELUJAH!
You see, when you read: We are more than Conquerors; that should tell you straightaway, “this is a very serious matter”.
We don’t use the word CONQUEROR when we are discussing Games. When one team plays another team and one loses, and the other wins. We Say: this team defeated that team – You CONQUER in war.
The GOD we serve is not a Civilian; Get that one clear!
Exodus 15:3 says; “The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.”
Psalms 24:7-10 says: He is Mighty in Battle.
Don’t let anybody deceive you; life is WAR! From the day you were born till the day you end (die) it is WAR! The Elders say that is why a new born baby cries when he or she is born.
They say the battle begins and he or she keeps fighting until finally when death comes. He says NOW, the Battle is OVER!
Are you a Christian?
The Bible made it clear in 2 Timothy 2:3 -4; “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”
When you gave your life to Jesus Christ, you have just joined the Army of Christ. We are in a war brother, we are in a war sister: Glory be to God, we shall WIN!
The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 10:3: “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)”
… You don’t take weapons to Sunday School Class; Weapon is for fighting warfare.
But like I told you (in one of the past Holy Ghost Services); the war or the fight is fixed in our favour.
Oh, before we begin to fight at all, we have already won (you saw a little bit of it tonight! – I wasn’t surprised).
Genesis 1:1 says: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
And I decree right now, in the life of everyone of you; from this moment onward: LET THERE BE LIGHT!
John 1:5 says: “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
It is IMPOSSIBLE for darkness to overcome Light. We are born winners!
The Bible says “If God be for us, who can be against us?” WE ARE BORN WINNERS; the fight is fixed in our favour.
As one of my children mentioned (one of those who Ministered before me); 1 John 4:4, it says: “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
LITTLE, but we are of God. It says we have OVERCOME them even before we began to fight: “because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
I’m going to ask you one more time: How many of you believe (without any doubt) that “I AM BORN TO WIN?” Then shout a BIG hallelujah – HALLELUJAH.
… But then, that means: GET READY TO FIGHT!
And am going to mention just a few POINTS (because of another Meeting I have later).
1. You must fight SICKNESS.
Do I hear an Amen to that? – AMEN!
The moment you give your life to Jesus Christ, you are equipped to fight sickness and Win!
Ask the Doctors, they will tell you that the way God created you: He put inside your blood “Soldiers”. I think they call it White Blood corpuscles; something like that (I’m not a Medical Doctor). But inside your blood there are “Soldiers”.
Their Assignment is to fight anything that is not created to make you healthy. That is why when you have a cut in any part of your body, blood rushes there! Why? Where is that Intruder from? They want to flush it out.
And after some times, when they feel they have flushed out the Invaders, the blood clots; it forms a shield to prevent anything from outside from coming in through the wounds.
… That is the way God made it.
And many a times, for one (1) reason or the order; maybe the Intruder came through your mouth (maybe you ate something you shouldn’t eat). And so it gets into your body; and it begins to do some damages. The soldiers in your blood would rise up and begin to fight.
In the process of fighting, they generate heat. That’s when your temperature begins to rise.
… You are Born to WIN!
Ask the Doctors, they will tell you that under proper conditions; the body will always heal itself. That when they give you drugs, it is to quicken the fight.
Oh, you say but we heard that some people Die?
Yes sir! “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the Judgment:”
Everybody will die. That’s what Hebrew 9:27 says: We are all going to die; that’s not what we are talking about.
I mean, Jesus Christ raised Lazarus from the dead.
Where is Lazarus now? He still died! And am sure some of us will begin to say: we heard so and so died. Mind your business; it’s you we are talking about now.
As the Elders will says: “FA ALA LA” (mind your business). You must fight any sickness that is trying to send you to early grave. Because the purpose of sickness is to see to it that it you would allow it: they can cause you to die before your time.
Tell your neighbour: I refuse to die before my Time – I refuse to die before my Time!
Oh, do I have a choice in the matter?
Listen, in Philippians 1:23-26; Paul said: I find myself in a straight (before two options). I want to go and be with the Lord (which is far better), but I see that there are some of you who still needs me. He said, I WILL STAY!
May I assure you, in the Name that is above every other names: I am not leaving this world until I finish my Assignment.
What about you? DMC Media Crew are not leaving this world until WE FINISH OUR ASSIGNMENTS!
Because he said (the same Paul now) in 2 Timothy 4:6-8;
6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
… You must fight sickness; don’t let sickness kill you before your time.
In 2 Kings 20:1-20; A Prophet (true Prophet) God Himself said: go and tell Hezekiah “you are going to die, put your house in order”.
Hezekiah said: Lord, am not ready to go yet. God told the Prophet, go and tell him “I give you another fifteen (15) years”.
Is there anybody here today (or reading) who does not want to die before his or her time? If you are such a fellow let me hear you shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Some of you will remember the story of Papa Okeowo. He came here to see me at the age of eighty four (84). He said there was a Man of God (a Prophet): I think when he was forty (40) years. The Prophet told him everything that happened to him.
But said that at the age of eighty four (84) Papa Okeowo would die: and everything the Prophet told him came to pass. And now, there were two (2) weeks to go. So he came to die in Redemption Camp (Holy Land).
I said: Papa, do you really want to die? He said NO. but the Prophet said…
Forget what the Prophet said to you. Do you really want to die? He said NO.
I decree tonight, every Prophesy that is contrary to your wellbeing: I CANCEL in Jesus’ Name.
I said: Papa I know you have just given your life to Jesus Christ (not too long ago). He said YES. Are you ready to serve God now? He said oh, with all my heart. Then who is talking about death? He said the Prophet said… I said: forget the Prophet; by the Grace of God there is a bigger Prophet now. I said: Papa you are not going anywhere.
Papa left this world just few days before he became hundred (100). And he sent to me and said: tell him to please come! Papa said: Thank you very much, I think I want to go now. I said: No problem Daddy.
It is written Brothers/sisters; it is written my Beloved children, according to Psalms 118:17 – “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.”
I read in the Newspapers (was it last week); a woman has being in a comma for twenty seven (27) years. Unconscious for twenty seven (27). And then she woke up. Only God knows how many times Doctors and family members have prayed: God, let her die so that we can continue with our lives. The woman refused to die.
Lift your hands to the Almighty God and say Father, I will not die before my time.
… I join my Faith with yours and I say AMEN!
You must fight sickness; fight it in your life, fight it in the life of others: Lay hand on the sick, command sickness to leave them. Lay your hands on your children, tell sickness: Leave my children alone!
When the time comes to die, well that’s a settled matter. There is nothing we can do about that. The Elders say: you can cure sickness; you cannot cure death. We all know that!
But am not dying before my time; That’s the point. I am not lying before? MY TIME!
2. And then you must fight over POVERTY. It’s a battle; you have to fight over POVERTY!
The Bible says in Deuteronomy 15:11: “For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hands wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.”
… But it didn’t say you were the one; He didn’t say you will be one of them.
Open your mouth loud and clear, say: I refuse to die poor!
You know, in Leviticus 25:35; the Bible says: “And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.”
Now which one do you prefer: the one who is helped or the one who is HELPING?
The one that they have to use second hand clothes to cover or the one who is buying the clothes for others?
Which one do you prefer? – The LATTER!
… Say it one more time: I refuse to die poor.
Now, the fight against sickness is fixed; because Jesus had already made provision… “By His stripes you were healed”.
The fight against poverty is already fixed; because 2 Corinthians 8:9 says: “For ye know the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.”
He had paid for your wealth. In 3 John 1: 2; He says; “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
It is the wish of God that you prosper. And in the Name that is above every other names, it doesn’t matter what anybody may say: You will prosper.
John 10:10 says: ‘The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
It is fixed! The fight against poverty is already fixed in your favour. In Psalms 92:12-14; the Bible says: “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.”
The Bible says in Deuteronomy 28:11-12; it says you will be lending to Nations, and you will not borrow.
I decree in the Name that is above every other names: You will not die in poverty – Amen.
So go ahead, fight poverty. Make up your mind, do not accept it. Don’t let the devil in.
For years the devil tried to deceive Christians, telling them “Money is the root of all evil”.
That’s not what the Bible says. But says: the LOVE of money (not money).
You need money to do things for God.
I was telling them at the European Convention of our Churches that we just held couple of days ago – where forty nine (49) Nations gathered together for Convention.
I told them of something that happened years ago when I was in a particular part of the country (here in Nigeria) and I wanted to preach on their Television Station. And because I was a Lecturer at the University, they found it difficult to say to me that I couldn’t preach.
So they decided that they will discouraged me by charging exorbitantly. I said: give me so many hours per Month. They said you must pay so much per hour. I said: I will pay! They were surprised. After a month, when they saw that the Program has become the talk of the Town; they called me and said I can’t continue.
I said: why not? They said the money I was paying was too little. They said they want to double it. I said: I will pay! After the second Month they called me again; they said they want to triple the money. I said: I will PAY!
Raise your hand to the Almighty God; everything you need to serve Him, He will provide abundantly – Amen.
You must fight poverty!
So do what God says, to make sure that poverty is defeated in your life. Because you are BORN TO WIN.
Let me hear somebody say Amen loud and clear – Amen!
The Bible says, Sow and you will reap; Give and you shall be given. The Bible is clear!
And then it says you must be diligent. Proverbs 22:29 says: “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.”
I have always told the story of a young man; he was educated but he couldn’t get a job. And he said: I refuse to die in poverty. He applied, nobody gave him a job. He said: But am a good Cook! So he got a little bit of money; got some beans, got a bottle of oil and got one location at one corner somewhere in Lagos (Nigeria) and started Frying “Akara” (Bean Cake).
He is a man, but he began to fry “Akara”. You know Lagos people; as soon as they saw Akara by the Road side, they began to buy his Akara. Before he knew it, he saved enough money to buy a Motorcycle: and he began to do “Okada” Transport Business. From the money he made from the Okada, he bought a second Motorcycle.
… So he became an Employer of labour.
In the Name that is above every other names: the idea that would lead you to become a Millionaire; God will give you very soon.
3. And then, you must be willing to fight the battle over bondage.
Thank You Father!
1. The Lord asked me to tell somebody that your strength will return steadily.
2. Daddy says the fellow would understand (whoever the fellow is). But He asked me to tell you: The answer is YES!
Do you know that the battle for your freedom – Total Freedom, Total Deliverance is fixed? How? Because God said in James 4:7 – “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
If I can defeat the devil himself, then who are demons? Demons are just servants of Satan; Satan is the Boss. God says I can cause Satan to run – that is clear!
The Bible says, all you have to do is to submit to God (2ce). And then you can tell the devil to run and it will run.
I use “IT”, even though some people prefer to call Satan “he”. But you must be determined to resist the devil.
And the Bible says you are to resist the devil steadfastly. It’s a fight! 1Peter 5:8-9 says:
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
You see, because if you don’t resist the devil, he will stay and become a thorn in your flesh.
Numbers 33:55 says: “But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.”
The worse part of it is: if you don’t resist the devil, he will now begin to resist you.
When you go through the Scriptures; if you read Joshua 11:22; it is in Gath that the children of Israel allowed the giants to stay. By the time we got to I Samuel 17:1-16; Goliath came from the same Gath to terrorise the children of Israel.
I want to encourage everyone here tonight (or reading); every giants in your life must go tonight.
Don’t deal with one and leave the other. Because in 2 Samuel 21:15-22; the Bible tells us that Goliath had four (4) brothers and they all came later. After David killed Goliath, the other brothers came; one of them would have killed David.
Every Goliath left in our lives, they must go tonight in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
If you discovered that things are not going the way they should go, you know then it is the devil that is resisting you. You are not making progress the way you should: it may be probably that is is the devil that is resisting you. When you are reading your books, you understand everything. And then you get to the examination hall, you can’t remember anything. That is not natural – that’s the devil. What everybody is doing and they are succeeding; you try to do it and you are failing. That’s not natural – there are Forces you cannot see at work.
And you are about to win; you won’t fail again. No more defeat in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
I told you, some of you who are old enough will remember. I told you a story, we held a Program in Akure. We used to call it the Redeemer’s Congress (in those days). We finished the Programme and we were rejoicing we have had a wonderful time.
And a man blocked my way and said: Sir, you can’t go. I said we have finished, we have prayed. He said NO, NO, NO! You can’t go anywhere. Ok, if am not going anywhere, what is the problem? He was a successful Businessman, he had a Factory.
But all of a sudden, everything broke down: all the Machines refused to work. And he spent all the money he had. He borrowed so much from his friends that when the friends see him coming they run away. They are not asking for what he borrowed, but they don’t want him to borrow more. So when they see him coming they run!
I decree in the Name that’s above every other names: you will never borrow again – Amen.
Things got so bad that there was no food in the house. And the children had no food for days. The wife couldn’t bear the agony of these children crying all the time. So the wife became mentally derailed. He had no money to take her to the hospital; so he took her to one Babalawo.
He said: Sir, you are not going anywhere. My problems must be solved.
… And in the Name of the One who sent me: before tomorrow morning, everyone of you will sing songs of Victory – Amen.
So I said ok, that’s alright. I said: stretch your hands (he stretched his hands) I laid my hands on his hands, I said: in the Mighty Name of Jesus your hands are Anointed. Go and lay your hands on your wife, etcetera. And he left!
He got home, he went straight to his wife and the woman jerk up like somebody coming out of sleep, and said: what am I doing here? Ah, this thing is working. He ran to his Machines, laid hands on the machines, and the machines began to work immediately.
… The next time I saw him, he was driving a brand new car.
In the Name that is above every other names, every Force blocking your way shall be moved away today in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
Let me just mention maybe one (1) more – so that we can have time the pray, before we go to the other things we want to do.
4. What about Victory over ATTACKERS: People who are just attacking you?
You heard the Testimony of one (1) of our children that was made Chairman or something and some people just decided to attack him.
You know, there are people who love to attack you simply because you are succeeding. We are going to deal with them tonight.
1. Ah, Thank You Father. He said you used to be extremely happy. He said but things changed. God asked me to tell you: I will restore!
2. I think this is my own. So let me Amen to it before telling you. The Lord said the people you have helped will begin to come back to bless you.
3. Thank You Lord. Daddy says where you have failed, your children will succeed.
What about Victory over attackers?
Some people just like to attack you because you are succeeding. Don’t worry yourself: the fight is Fixed.
Because Isaiah 54:17 says: “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”
It is already settled even before you began to fight at all. Their weapons, God said will not prosper. Take note, He said in Isaiah 54:15: “Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.”
Now people have always said: why don’t you do something about your enemies?
There is no need!
If anything at all, I should be praying to God to be Merciful. Because God says He will deal with them. Am not the one who said so. He said: I will deal with them!
He said in another place, don’t worry yourself my son: Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.
And if you have ever seen God Fight, you will be afraid for your enemies.
The Elders have a saying, they say: when God decides to fight for you; you will become frightened. Because Numbers 16;1-34; some people gathered together against Moses; the ground swallowed them alive.
… That’s very frightening!
Somebody said, don’t you understand the meaning of Psalms 23:5: “Thou preparest a table before me in the Presence of mine enemies.
How do you think that happens?
He paralyses them!
When He wants to deal with your enemies He could cause them to die early; the ground could swallow them.
… Oh, because somebody will say: that is in the Old Testament. I will show you one (1) in the New Testament.
When somebody tries to hinder you from doing the work of God; God could give that fellow enough problems.
In Acts 13:6-12; Paul was preaching and there was this fellow who was saying: that’s not true. After some time, Paul said: ok, since you don’t want me to do the work that God called me to do, how about you becoming blind?
Thank God Paul added “for a while”.
God can give enough problem to those who want to hinder you; that they wont even have time for you at all.
I can talk to you, I can tell you examples upon examples. I mean of recent, I heard that one Prophet (he calls himself Prophet), he Prophesied that I will die very soon. When I heard, I smiled!
I spoke the kind of grammar we used to speak when I was in Nsukka (in the 1960s). I said: “WETIN I DO YOU FOR” (what did he say I have done to him)?
I don’t know him, our paths have not crossed. And he says am going to die?
And some people said: well, what are you going to do about it? I said, nothing! That’s already settled.
I will tell you one (1) story; several years ago, some of the Children of God in Foursquare, Assemblies of God, RCCG and some other Ministries joined together to start a Bank. When they started the Bank, the day they wanted to launch it they invited me to come and help them pray – so I went!
After the prayer, they said they want me to be their first customer. I said: I have no money (am talking about many years ago). They said that’s no problem, just open an Account. They said they will deposit Fifty Thousand (N50,000) there from their own pocket. Ok, so I filled the Form.
And then one (1) Newspaper reported the story and said I am the one who started the Bank. And that I spent Fifty (50) Million Naira to start the Bank.
At that time even if we sell the whole of us in RCCG, we are not up to fifty (50) Million Naira.
And then there was a Meeting of Pentecostal Leaders. It was around when Arch Bishop Idahosa just died. While the Meeting was on; one fellow who calls himself Prophet got up and said he heard that I had started a bank. And thus said the Lord: just as Idahosa died suddenly, I will be the next fellow to follow.
And everybody there, they were looking at me: Aren’t you going to say something? I said there is no need. God had already spoken, He says: when a Prophet says I said, when I didn’t say anything, I will deal with the Prophet.
That’s more than twenty (20) years ago. Am still here. The one who said am going to die is no more.
I have Good News fie you my children, anyone who is expecting you to die before your time: You will be there at their Burial ceremony. You will be there at their Funeral.
… You are BORN TO WIN!
Let me round up with this, because I want you to really pray for at least thirty (30) minutes.
Because our weapon of warfare are not canal. We don’t fight with guns and cutlasses, but we fight with Prayers. And every Goliath must fall tonight.
… We must ACTIVATE our Victory tonight!
5. You must fight till every NO becomes YES!
In Matthew 15:21-28; a woman came to Jesus Christ and said: am not the one in trouble really; it’s my daughter. My child is grievously vexed with the devil – the devil is troubling my home. I need help!
The Bible says Jesus Christ didn’t answer her, she kept crying. The Apostles, the Bishop, the Pastors said: Lord, drive this woman away, she is too noisy. Jesus Christ said: I am sent to anybody except to the “House of Israel”. The woman said: whether I belong to the House of Israel or not; am getting a Miracle tonight – the devil is going to be defeated in my Family tonight.
She came to the Lord and said: have Mercy on me, I know am not of the House of Israel, but have Mercy on me.
Jesus Christ said: I can’t give the bread of children to dogs. She said: this dog is not going home without a Miracle.
There is somebody here tonight you won’t go back the way you came – Amen.
She cried until Jesus Christ said: Woman “Great is your Faith”. Receive your Miracle.
In John 2:1-11; when the mother of Jesus came and said there is no more wine (in Cana of Galilee). The mother said to those who were standing there. Don’t move an inch: anything He asks you to do, do it.
What Jesus Christ said was that: It is NOT YET.
Because these people refused to move, Not Yet became NOW!
Every Miracle you have been expecting, you are getting tonight in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
… You must learn to fight until every NO becomes a YES; every NOT YET becomes NOW!
Remember the story in Mark 2:1-12; when they brought this young man, who was paralysed from neck downwards (brought by his 4 friends); and they got there and they found out that the doors were blocked by people; windows blocked by people. They climbed to the roof and broke the roof.
The Bible says in Matthew 11:12 ; “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent taketh it by force.”
The problem with many of us is that just before our results could come, we stopped praying.
Tonight we are going to force our way through. We are Born to Win, we are tired of losing; we are More than Conquerors; no more defeat. You are Born to Prosper, no more losses.
… I thought I hear Amen loud and clear? – AMEN!
I have told you the story before of a day after one (1) Convention, and I was very, very tired. We have finished, everybody had gone home and I have gone round the Camp and saw that everything was in order. I came back home, told my wife No more visitors now. And I qualify to rest. I said: am going to bed.
Shortly after that, she came. Woman, I told you that I don’t want anymore assignment, I want to rest. She said there is a woman at the door, she came from the North. She asked the children: is Daddy home? They said YES (because my children don’t lie). I want to see him. They said he is not seeing anyone again.
The woman said: Is that so? They said Yes. He is not seeing anyone again today? They said Yes. Who is talking about today? I will sit at this door until he comes: whether today or tomorrow. He is in now? Ah, Yes! Fine!
How many of you know that God has not travelled? That God is at home and He is ready to hear you? Let me hear you shout a big hallelujah – HALLELUJAH!
So my wife said, you are tired? You better add this one to your tiredness. Because they gave her food, she sat down at my door, ate the food and just relaxed! He is home?
I came to the woman, what is the problem? She said it is this my head. Anytime something good is about to happen, something will happen and throw it away. Just touch this my head and then I will be able to go.
Lay your hands on your own head and and say head, hear the Word of the Lord: You are Born to Win, you must Win. And so shall it be in Jesus Mighty Name – Amen.
And so tonight, we are going to pray for thirty (30) minutes at least. You are going to name all Giants blocking your way one by one. And tell them: in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, they must get out of you way now.
Every sickness, every disease, every ache, everything causing you problems physical, problems marital, problems spiritual, problems material. You will present them before God one by one tonight until we get up knowing we are Born to Win.
So if you want to come to the Altar, you want to kneel down, you want to sit down, you want to stand. But if I were you, I will pray with all my heart.
You start by THANKING the Almighty God. And then present your case. God is here, He hasn’t travelled – He is willing to listen to you. You are BORN TO WIN!
Go ahead and begin to talk to the Almighty God: telling Him all the problems that have been hindering your Victory and claim your Victory tonight. Call on Him and He will answer you. He will surprise you tonight and you will leave this place shouting “I am More than a Conqueror.
… Thank You Lord, Hallelujah. Thank you my Father. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen.
Before I pray for you, I want us to pray some Prayers (in agreement).
Let us stand up and join our hands with our neighbour’s. We want to pray prayers of Agreement (1 or 2 prayers).
1. First of all I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say Father; am in Agreement with my neighbour. Give my neighbour TOTAL VICTORY.
2. (With your hands still joined) I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God and say Father; we are in one accord: in all our Churches NO MORE CANCER.
3. And then lift your voice and say Father; in all our families: NO MORE PREMATURE DEATH.
One more prayer! And you will pray this one with all your heart, and say:
4. Father; I agree with my neighbour, from now on: OPEN DOORS!
Thank You Father, in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen.
My father and my God, Lord of Host, the One who never lose a war, I thank You this morning; I thank You on behalf of all Your children here and those who are following us all over the world. Please Lord God Almighty, on behalf of every one of us, accept our thanks in Jesus’ Name.
I stand here today Lord as Your representative to these Your children, and as their Representative to You; I want to make some DECREES. Lord as I do, establish it. If only to prove to them that You are the One who called me.
Every DECREE I make this morning, establish it.
In the Name that is above every other names: None of you will die before your time. In a manner you cannot even understand, God will clear your debts. The Life more abundant that Jesus Christ Promised, beginning from this Month; you will begin to enjoy it. You will never fail again; you will never know defeat. There will be no more losses for you; you will never know sorrow again.
God will renew your Strength.
And in ALL your families, there will be no more premature death; in ALL your churches, no more CANCER. Beginning from today DOORS will open unto you. Every Goliath in your lives shall fall tonight. It shall be well with you; forever you will be a Winner. All who gather against you shall fall by you! God will help you; He will support you; He will make your Victory TOTAL.
So shall it be!
And you too, you will serve God. You will find it easy to Win Souls. None of your relatives will go to Hell; none of your neighbours will go to Hell. God will help you to Win Souls. It shall be well with you. He will answer ALL your prayers and your Joy will never end.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!

It is outrightly wrong and a sin for anyone that wants to swim in God’s Glory to consciously remove the original source of the work that does not emanate for him or her!
