TEXT: PSALMS 121:1-2

DATE: 26TH MAY, 2019

Lift up your hands to the Most High God and bless His Holy Name. Let’s worship the King of kings, the Lord of lords. Let us worship the Ancient of Days. Just lift your voice to the Almighty God and bless His Holy Name. Give Him Glory, Give Him Honour; worship the Holy One of Israel. He is worthy to be Praised, He is Worthy to be Adored, He is Worthy to be Magnified. There is no one like Him. He is the same yesterday, today and for ever. He lives for ever; He never changes. Give Him Glory, Give Him Honour, Give Him Adoration.

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


I have a Father
Almighty Father
He is King of kings and Lord of lords
I have a Father.


Almighty God, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Unchangeable Changer, the Alpha and Omega, the One who has no Beginning and has no Ending; We worship You. Please accept our worship in Jesus’ Name.

Today we ask that in the lives of all Your children You will do something New. Let all our needs be met today. Give us a VERY Special Miracle from Heaven. Let this day mark a Turning Point for the better in our lives.

Father we ask that You will bless the Nation of Israel. And in Your own Miraculous way let there be Peace in that Nation. Have mercy on Nigeria, let it be well with all of us. And at the end of everything today; let Your Name be Glorified.

In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!

Now let someone shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!

Shake hands with one (1) or two (2) people, and tell them: Good Morning, God bless you.

And then you may please be seated.

Let’s give the Lord a big round of applause for the Choir. I can see why some people who are not even Youth are coming here to worship. I think they come to listen to the Choir.

… Glory be to God!

How many of you love Israel? And I mean you genuinely love Israel?

Now let me hear you shout a really big Hallelujah for Israel – Hallelujah.

Let me hear you say: welcome to the Ambassador of Israel to Nigeria (the Ambassador stands to greet the congratulation). We love you sir; we love Israel (we definitely love Israel). And we want to assure you sir; we will keep praying for Israel. Thank you very much for coming to worship with us. God bless you.

… Let’s give the Lord another round of applause.

I will be cheating you if I don’t allow your Mother (our Mother in Israel, Mummy GO) to come and say: God bless you!

… (Shouts of joy as Mummy GO walks to the Podium)


Amen! Your Excellency, the Ambassador of Israel to Nigeria. Shalom! The Church; Good morning Church (Good morning Ma)!

The Lord will continue to bless you and make you a blessing. This is the beginning of the week; and this week is going to be Glorious. Wherever you go, you will find favour. The Church of God here will continue to prosper. And everything you touch will prosper. You will make it in life.

In Jesus Mighty Name, we shall ALL make Heaven – Amen!


Ok! Lest I forget; I think the children did a great job. So we thank God for the children. We thank God for their Teachers. Well done, God bless you.

Please be seated!


… While you are opening your Bible; let me appreciate the great work that God is doing here. Thank God for your expansion. And I pray you will grow bigger and bigger, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.

1. I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

2. My help cometh from the LORD, which made Heaven and Earth.

It has been said that: What you focus on is what you become.

And then they say: Where you LOOK will determine where you will end up.

“What you focus on is what you will become; What you look at will determine where you will end up”.

If you LOOK DOWN: you are likely to see problems.

For example, you look down, and you see what is going on in our Nation and other Nations of the world. You are likely to become discouraged (overwhelmed).

In Matthew 14: 22-33; Peter was already walking on water to go and meet Jesus. But when he took his eyes off Jesus and began to look at the winds and the storms; the Bible says he began to sink.

… So if you LOOK DOWN; you are likely to go down!

If you LOOK AROUND: you will see other men like you.

Some people may think they have problems; wait till you hear the problems of others.

Somebody said: when you are complaining that God has not done enough for you; there are people who are praying that whatever God has done for you; only if He could do that for them. That they will be satisfied.

When you LOOK AROUND; you see men. And when you LOOK UNTO MEN for help, you will be disappointed.

WHY? Psalms 60:11 says: ‘Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.”

As a matter of fact, God said in Jeremiah 17:5: “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.”

… If you make flesh your strength; God says you are already CURSED!

But when you LOOK UP: you will see the Almighty. You will see the Almighty – High and Lifted up! You will see Him sitting on His Throne in ABSOLUTE CONTROL of whatever may be happening.

He said in Isaiah 66:1: “Thus saith the LORD, The Heaven is my throne, and the Earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?”

So He is sitting in Heaven and His feet are firmly planted on the Earth.

In other words; whatever you may consider as problems, are under His feet – He is in CONTROL!

The storms might be raging, but there is someone on His Throne; and He is in CONTROL.

So this morning, in the next few minutes (because I will be brief); these few minutes I want to spend with you is to encourage you to: LOOK UP! – Look up to the One who is called the Most High; the One who is called the Almighty. The One who never changes; the One who has never lost a War.

You LOOK UP to Him, then your tomorrow can be alright; if you LOOK UP to the Almighty God, you are going to be blessed.

Jeremiah 17:7 says: “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.”

Now, how come that if you LOOK UP, you will have the assurance that your tomorrow will be alright? Because He is seated in Heaven, controlling everything going on in the Heavenliest.

For example, God is seated in Heaven and from there He CONTROLS THE SUN.

In Joshua 10:12-14; the Bible says that on a particular day, when Joshua was fighting and he was about to win; but the enemy is about to escape (because of the sun setting) he lifted up his eyes to the Almighty God and said: I want the Sun to Stand Still. I want the Moon to stay where it is.

And the Bible says: for almost a whole day, the Sun STOOD STILL.

You know what that means? The Almighty God has the Power to control how you end.

And some of us are anxious: What’s going on? I have reached a certain age certain things were supposed to have happened by now; they have not yet happened. I hope I have not already been left behind?

… There is Someone who CONTROLS THE SUN!

Not only can He ask the Sun to stand still; He can even ask the Sun to go BACKWARDS.

According to 1saiah 38:1-9; when God wanted to heal a particular King, He gave him an assurance: I would tell the Sun to go backwards.

In other words; our God is so Mighty He can reverse the irreversible. He can bring the opportunity you have lost right back to you.

I can guarantee somebody who will “LOOK UP” to the Almighty God that; even things you have lost forever will come back to you this week – Amen!


Some of you have heard me share the Testimony of something that happened when I was approaching the age of sixty (60). And all the children were getting excited; getting ready to celebrate that I was already going. Because by the time you are Sixty (60) years old, you know that you are in the Second Half of the journey.

And I knew why God sent me to the world: I have come that (by the Grace of God) I might bring to fulfilment the Promise of God to my father in the Lord – that the Redeemed Christian Church of God will go round the whole world.

I was approaching sixty (60) and we were only in Fifty six (56) Nations of the world.

So I was walking in the Camp Ground at night (around 2.00am). And I was saying to the Almighty God: Father, the Sun is setting, and I have not done half of what you want me to do. Help me! Then He spoke to me and said: Son, I determine when the Sun sets.

That was seventeen (17) years ago. The Sun hasn’t set yet. And by the Grace of the Almighty God, today RCCG is in more than one hundred and ninety eight (198) Nations of the world.

I have Good News for somebody here today (or reading); your tomorrow will be Glorious. You will not die before your time. Everything that you thought you have lost, the One who controls the Sun will bring it right back.

And then He is in Heavens; controlling what is happening in Heavens. He is here on Earth controlling everything that is happening on Earth. He is in charge – absolutely in charge.


I remember years ago, when we were getting ready for Election. And we had a Meeting of Pentecostals, and everybody was arguing; the Bishop would say, this is what I think God is going to do. Another one said: this is what I think we should do. After some time they all asked me: Daddy, why don’t you say something? I said: I am enjoying your Academic Exercise.

You are saying, combine this and that; before we were born God has taken a decision. He knows the end from the beginning. So everything you are saying now is funny to Him: because He already knows!

Do you know that it doesn’t matter what people are saying concerning you; God knows where He’s taking you; and you will arrive – Amen!

He is on Earth controlling the Land: In Numbers 16:23-34; some people ganged up against Moses (Korah Datham and Abiram). They said: who made you ruler over us? Are you the only one who hears from God? We are Prophets too.

And Moses said, Father, what do I do to these people? God said: eh, move aside, let Me deal with them. Just tell anyone who is not belonging to your camp to move aside. I will show them something.

The Bible says, while Moses called the people away from them; all of a sudden the ground opened its mouth and swallowed those people. And then closed up again.

When you talk about the Almighty God, you are talking about the Lord of Host. And I have always told my people, He is not a Civilian. He is a Soldier! And one (1) of the greatest problems of Generals is: What do we do with the dead bodies of our enemies after we kill them? Because it is a very unpleasant job having to bury your enemies. And if you don’t bury them they will rot and then create plagues.

When God wanted to kill His enemies, He solved the problem; the ground opened its mouth and swallowed the enemies and closed up again. So there was no need to bury. He has done everything He wants to do.

Let me Prophesy that: Every sickness, every disease that you brought in this morning (or while reading now), the ground will open its mouth and swallow them all – Amen.

He is sitting in Heaven and here on Earth; He is controlling waters (the Sea and every other thing pertaining to waters or winds).

For example, in Exodus 14:21-28; when the children of Israel got to the Red Sea and the Red Sea was blocking their way to the Promised Land. God sat down in Heaven and told Moses: Why are you worried? Just raise your hands and I will create a path in the Red Sea (you know the story). Moses lifted his hands and God caused an East Wind to blow all night. And by the following morning the children of Israel had passed through on dry ground.

… The enemies tried to follow them. And the Sea came back and swallowed them up!

In Mark 4:35-41; the Bible tells us another story. The Lord Jesus Christ was with His Disciples in the Boat (He was sleeping) and there was a storm. And the Disciples woke Him up and said: Master! We are about to drown. He spoke a word, He said: PEACE! Be still.

… And EVERYTHING became calm!

And then the people say: What manner of Man is this; that even the Wind and the Sea obey Him?

If there is any storm in your life; in the Mighty Name of Jesus that storm will be STILL today – Amen.

And if there is any ocean blocking your way; because of the One who called me, that ocean will part today – Amen!


I have told you the story before (but I just want to remind you) that when I was doing my Ph.D; it got to a stage where I got one hundred and seventy six (176) Simultaneous Equations. And if you know anything in Mathematics, Two (2) Simultaneous Equations could be a problem.

Now I ended up with one hundred and seventy six (176) Simultaneous Equations! I was trying to solve a problem (because to get a Ph.D in Mathematics you must solve a Problem nobody has solved before. If you don’t solve the Problem, no Ph.D.

Now, because it is a Problem nobody has ever solved before, we don’t even know whether it has a Solution. And I have been working on the Problem for eighteen (18) Months. Then I ended up with one hundred and seventy six (176) Simultaneous Equations. I looked at everything, I couldn’t even know what to do (I couldn’t see the way forward). But I didn’t want to drop this Problem. Because if I do, I will have to start with a fresh one. And I don’t know if that fresh one also has a Solution or not.

So I was studying one (1) night, when I threw it aside. Eh, let me sleep! But before I sleep, let me study my Bible. Then I read Exodus 14; the Crossing of the Red Sea. Suddenly, God spoke to me:

… How many of you believe that God still speaks? (DMC Members do!) He will SPEAK to you today – Amen!

And said: Son, bring your Equations. Quickly, I gathered everything together. I spread everything on the table. And He said: put this one on the left, put this one on the right (repeatedly).

By the time I did that, suddenly I saw that the Equations on the Right had something in common (which I didn’t see when it was putting them together). Those on the left, they had something in common.

And He said to me: Solve the Equations on the right separately; Solve the ones on the left separately. And then bring the two (2) Equations together. He said; that’s what happened at the Crossing of the Red Sea!

The Problem I have been trying to solve for eighteen (18) Months was solved in five (5) hours.

WHY? Because there is Somebody in Heaven controlling the situation of things on Earth.

Those of you who are students here (or reading now) I have Good News for you; you won’t fail another Exam – Amen!

He is seated in the Heavens and here on Earth He Controls affairs.

You know the story in Daniel 3:23-30; Because Shedrack, Meshach and Abednego refused to bow down to idols. The King (Nebuchadnezzar) decided they should be thrown into the fiery furnace. They threw them into the fiery furnace, but before they got in, there was a fourth (4th) MAN waiting. And even an idol King said: this is the Son of God.

Are you going through a hot Fire right now? I have Good News for you: That Fire is going to be put out today – Because the Fourth Man will pay you a visit – Amen!

He is seated in the Heaven and from the Heaven He is CONTROLLING ANIMALS AND BIRDS.

In Daniel 6:1-27 (you know the story) because Daniel said: I can’t stop praying. They threw him into the den of Lions. But the lions couldn’t touch him. Because there is a God in Heaven who Controls Animals and Birds.

Some people said: Maybe the lions were not hungry. Well, the following morning when they pulled out Daniel, and those who threw him into the den were asked to go and check whether the lions were still there or not. The Bible says before they reached the bottom, the lion pounced on them and finished them.

If anybody has thrown you into a Den of lions; he will replace you there – Amen!

… He Controls ANIMALS, He Controls BIRDS!

In 1 Kings 17:2-6; the Bible tells us that when God wanted to feed Elijah (at the Brook Cherith), He sent ravens to bring him (Elijah) bread and meat twice a day.

I have said it before, everybody knows, No. 1 – Birds like to eat bread. If you don’t believe me, take your bread, spread it out there. And you will see very soon, birds will come. Ravens in particular love to eat meat. But the Ravens didn’t eat the bread that belonged to Elijah. They didn’t eat the flesh that was meant for Elijah.

That tells you one (1) thing: The Miracle that belongs to you, nobody can tamper with it – Amen!

And not only that; the Ravens were always on time, at the correct address. They came to the Brook of Cherith all the time early in the morning to give this man (Elijah) breakfast. And in the evening, to give him dinner. They never missed the address once!

Do you know that even on the Camp Ground today (Venue of this Program) there are more than a dozen Churches?

But the Almighty God chose your Parish.

WHY? Because there is somebody here (or reading) whose Miracle can no longer wait. And your Miracle will come to you today – Amen. It will not miss your address – Amen!


When we were building this Camp (the very first year); then a lot of funny things happened. This was a total jungle then. All the development you see along the Camp, they camp after we came here. Nobody wanted this area then. This was the headquarters of Highway Robbers.

… But this is the place that the Almighty God chose for us. So we came!

And then we suddenly discovered we had a big problem. There were these tiny, tiny birds: very noisy, very dirty, very destructive. They invaded the Camp! They will come on a tree in the morning, by the evening, you cannot see a single leaf left on that tree. They would have turned it to Nests.

And then, they became so noisy that I knew, when we want to hold our Convention; because of these birds, nobody is going to hear anything!

I lifted my eyes to the Hills: Lord what do I do? You have to help me. Then all of a sudden God sent in Eagles (big Eagles). They came by the dozens and they began to work on these little birds. Within three (3) days, there was not a single bird left. And then the Eagles flee away.

… He still controls birds!

So if God has to send a bird to bring your Miracle to you (because He is the same yesterday, today and forever) expect your Miracles today – Amen!

And then, of course He CONTROLS HUMAN BEINGS.

He is seated in the Heavens and He is Controlling Human Beings.

Because Proverbs 21:1 says; “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.”

Don’t let anybody tell you that you have to know somebody (high up) before you can succeed in life, or succeed in Nigeria or anywhere. No, No; NO! All you need is to know the Most High.

There is someone who controls Kings; He controls Governor. He is in charge!

And if there is anyone up there that God can use to help you; He will touch that fellow today – Amen!

When He wanted to promote Joseph from the prison to becoming the Prime Minister of Egypt (which incidentally is what we will be studying tomorrow – 27th May 2019 Open Heavens); all He did was, He gave Pharaoh two (2) dreams. Two (2) Dreams that bothered him. As a result of the Dreams, by the end of the day the man who was a prisoner yesterday had become a Prime Minister today.

Anyone that is in a position to help you, who is not helping; Today, they will get a dream – Amen!

And then in Psalms 37:23-25; the Bible tells us that: “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.”

And David went on to say: I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging? BREAD!

It doesn’t matter what the Economy is saying; God is still CONTROLLING HUMAN BEINGS. And when He wants to send Help to you, HE WILL!

And the people you meet “Casually” that you think – “Casual Acquaintance” is part of the plan of God for your future.

There is nothing “Casual” about meeting somebody, making acquittance, making friends. No, No; NO! Every fellow you have met is part of the plan of God for your future.

… I give you one more story and then I will close.


I was a Teacher in a School called Oke Ife Tedo Grammar School in Ondo State (Western Nigeria). I was a Sportsman (as you know). So as a Teacher in that Grammar School, I was their Games Master (you know what a Games Master is)? That is the one who controls Sporting Activities in the School.

So we went to a Town called AKure for a Competition, and I met their Games Master. And as usual, we were boasting: oh, by the time my Team finishes with your Team, “you will need a Basket to carry your goals home” (you know that kind of joke). We joked and joked; and then we played the Match. I can’t even remember who won and who lost (that doesn’t matter now). Because I am talking of 1969 – and that is quite a long time ago.

And then after the Games, we all departed. And I thought that was the end of the story. But then, that same 1969, I decided to go to the University of Lagos (Nigeria) for my Masters Degree. Unknown to me; the other Games Master also left Akure and joined the Federal Ministry of Education.

About one and half (1 1/2) years we met; he came to the Campus of the University (of Lagos – Nigeria) to do something. And I said: Eh, this is the Games Master (I remember now, we are the ones who won the Match then). You are the Games Master of the people that we flogged so badly. He said, what are you doing here? I said I’m a Post Graduate Student here, and you? He said: I am working with the Federal Ministry of Education.

So I took him to my room and entertained him. And while entertaining him, I said: You people are very tough. He said, what is the problem? I said: I applied for Federal Scholarship (I know nobody alright but I applied). At least you should have called me for Interview (even if you are not going to give me the Scholarship).

He said: you applied? I said, I did! And they didn’t call you for Interview? I said, they didn’t! He said: we were wondering that there was not a single fellow who applied for Post Graduate Mathematics. I said, I did! He said: I will go and check the Files. I said, Yes Sir!

To cut a long story short; I was expecting that they will now write to invite me for an Interview. But the next thing I got was a Letter Awarding me a Scholarship.

They Awarded me a Scholarship; I had almost finished my Course. I had already paid my School Fees, one way or the other (you don’t need to know the details).

But they paid me; and because the Course was for two (2) years; they paid me the Scholarship for two (2) years. I just took the money, went home, bought land and built my first house.

… It was a “Casual” meeting on the Football Field. It led to my building my first house.

The fellow that God will use for your future; you will meet him or her this week – Amen!

So David said: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made Heaven and Earth.”

And so, the choice is yours:

1. Do I want to LOOK DOWN and see problems (and be overwhelmed)?

2. Do I want to LOOK AROUND; look at men, expecting help from the one whose help is vain?

3. Or do I LOOK UP to the Most High; and let Him who controls the Heavens, who controls the earth sort me out?

And the interesting thing is that Jesus Christ said in Matthew 11:28 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. He said: Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

He says: If you come to Me, I will solve ALL your problems. I have Control of the Heavens, I have control of the Earth, I control Human Beings, I control all those who could help you. I have a way of dealing with all those who want to gang up against you: I could bury some of them alive; I could drown some of them; I could bomb some of them.

Why don’t you COME UNTO ME?


So this morning; if you are listening to me or watching online (or reading now) and you have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus Christ. Am giving you another opportunity to do so NOW!

The moment you surrender your life to Him, He becomes your BURDEN BEARER; He will carry your BURDENS for you.

So am going to count from one (1) to five (5); anyone who wants to surrender his or her life to Jesus Christ. Come and stand before me, I will pray for your Salvation. And then we will pray our closing prayer and be on our way.

So if you haven’t surrendered your life to Jesus Christ; if you are inside here or you are watching online (or reading right now): am going to count from one (1) to five (5). If I say five (5) you are not already standing before me; I will assume that either you have already truly, truly surrendered to Jesus or you just don’t want to come. And then I will pray and be on my way.

So if you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, Come now! I’m counting…..

God bless you! You might be the only one. You don’t need to wait for others. Just come, today is the day that the Almighty God has made for you. The Burden Bearer is the One calling you now to come and surrender your life to Him and He will solve all your problems. Because He controls the Heavens, He controls the Earth. He knows what to do, to solve all your problems.

The Bible says before the mountains were brought forth He is GOD. And He has the ability to even UPROOT the Mountains.

… Alright! Keep coming. God bless you. Anyone else? Alright!

Now, those of you who are already in the front, talk to Jesus. Just tell Him: I have come to surrender my life to You. I mean business this time around. I want You to be my Lord and my Saviour. And I Promise You, I will serve You. I will obey You for the rest of my life. Just forgive all my sins and I am Yours forever!

And the rest of us, please let’s stretch our hands towards these our Brethren and pray for them. Pray that the One who saved your soul will save their own souls also. Pray that the Blood that washed you clean will wash them Clean. Intercede for them!

… And if there is anyone who still wants to come, you better come now because am about to pray.

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


Saviour, I just want to say Thank You. Thank You for Your Words. Thank You for these people who have come forward to surrender their lives to You. You promised that whoever comes to You; You will in no wise cast out. They have come now Father; Please receive them in Jesus’ Name.

Forgive all their sins, save their souls. Please write their names in the “Book of Life”. And I pray that from now on, anytime they cry unto You; You will answer them by FIRE. I pray that in Your Kingdom, they will not be missing. Thank You my Father and my God.

Father in a moment am going to ask all Your children here (or reading) to cry unto You today. Please, because this is a very Special Day in their lives; whatever they ask from You today, before the Sun sets, let it become a Testimony.

Thank You Almighty God; in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – AMEN!

… Praise the Lord!

Now, those of you who have come forward (to surrender your lives to Jesus Christ); 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 name, your address and your prayer requests. And the Counsellors will give me a copy. And I promise I will be praying for you.

… So I want you to stay here meanwhile, and join the rest of us as we pray.

The rest of us are you sure God will answer you today?

YES! You are sure? YES!!!

Ok! Then let me first of all hear you shout a really bIG hallelujah – HALLELUJAH!

I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God (forget everybody to your right, to your left); this is between you and God now. And say: FATHER, I lift my eyes unto You, SEND HELP TO ME.

Go ahead, talk to the Almighty God: Send Help to me today. From the East send help to me. From the West send help to me. From the South send help to me. From Heaven Above, Father SEND HELP TO ME!

Thank you so much for staying all through to read.
