DATE: 31ST DECEMBER, 2018
Well, let somebody shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Eternal Rock of Ages we worship you. The Ancient of Days, we magnify your Holy Name. The One who is always the I AM, never “I WAS”; not even “I WILL BECOME”! The One who is always “I AM”, we worship you. Glory be to your Holy Name.
Tonight, do something incredible; the kind you have never done before in our lives: Do it my Father. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed. Amen!
Let someone shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Shake hands with one (1) or two (2) people; and tell them: “I will see you in the New Year”. And then, you may please be seated.
I KINGS 19:4-8
4. But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.
5. And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat.
6. And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again.
7. And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.
8. And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.
In every man’s life, at least once in a lifetime; he will find himself in a valley. Even a family can be in a valley. Even a Nation can be in a valley.
Elijah ran from Mount Camel to Jezreel; according to 1 Kings 18:46. When he got to the valley in Jezreel, he met with Jezebel: a great disappointment!
The Shunamite Woman that you read about in 2Kings 4:8-20; the Woman who volunteered to take care of Elisha, and then unexpectedly got a son in her old age. Suddenly found herself in a valley; when the son came from the field and died.
Israel used to be living in Goshen; the best place in Egypt. But then, according to Exodus 1:7-14; a new King arose that didn’t know Joseph. The children of Israel, who used to go about proudly in the land; became slaves. They found themselves in a valley
In this year that is passing away, some of us had known disappointments. Some of us have found ourselves in the valley. But some people never stayed in the valley. They found themselves on the ground, they shake themselves up, they rise up again and continued to match forward.
In 2 Kings 4:32-37; the Shunamite Woman refused to stay in the valley. She laid the dead child on the bed; went to meet the Man of God, role on the ground: “am not going to stay in the valley”. By the time they came back; she was back on the Mountain Top!
In Exodus 13:30-36; a night came when Israel came out of the valley. Elijah was in the valley; a valley so deep that he was asking for death. But the next time we met Elijah, in 1 Kings 21:20-24, Elijah wasn’t running from Jezebel anymore: he was on the Mountain Top. Now, roaring judgement on Ahab, Jezebel and his family.
There is someone here tonight, or reading; by the time we are saying Happy New Year: you will be out of the valley – Amen!
You can leave your valley experience with 2018; and begin your journey to the Mountain Top in Year 2019 – Amen! All it takes is a “MEAL”.
Elijah took his own meal; the Almighty God said in His Word. Next time we will be talking about you, Elijah; ‘You will be in Horeb, the Mountain of God”. Israel took one meal, the valley experience of hundreds (100s) of years came to an end in one (1) night.
The Almighty God has brought you; very special people, to the Holy Communion tonight: so that after this meal, “your valley experience will end”.
The only one who can still remain in the valley after tonight’s Holy Communion Service is the one who is not a child of God.
… Because, Miracles are for children.
Jesus said: “I cannot give the children’s bread to dogs”. Which means, if the dogs should eat the bread belonging to children; it wasn’t given to him, it will have no effect on him.
So don’t let me waste time tonight. If you have not yet given your life to Jesus Christ, you are not a child of God. Don’t waste your time by taking the Holy Communion.
But if you come forward, and you surrender your life to Jesus Christ; and His Blood washes away your sins.
… That Blood has the Power to change a dog to a son.
Am going to count from one (1) to seven (7). If you have not yet surrender your life to Jesus Christ; run forward and come and stand before me. And I will pray for your Salvation. And you will become qualified to partake of the bread provided by God.
… Am counting now!
Those of you who are already in the front and those of you on the way; cry to the Lord: Ask Him to have Mercy on you. Ask Him to save your soul. Ask Him to forgive your sins. Promise Him that from now on you will serve Him. Ask Him to please be your Lord and your Saviour for the rest of your life.
And the rest of us; let us stretch our hands towards these people and intercede for them. That the Almighty God who saved our souls will save their own souls also. Please pray for them for just one (1) minute.
… And if you are coming, you better hurry up. Because am about to pray for your Salvation now.
Thank you Father; in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
GO PRAYS: Saviour, we want to thank you for your Words. And we want to thank you for the Power Mighty in your Blood. That Blood that can change a dog to a child.
These people have cone to you tonight, Father wash them clean in your Blood. Save their souls, forgive all their sins, write their names in the Book of Life. And uphold them till the very end.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed. Amen!
Praise the Lord! Now, I rejoice with those of you who have come forward. I promise you from now on; I will be praying for you. So, I will need your names, your addresses and your prayer requests.
So, if you turn, you will see somebody to your left; who is carrying a placard. Follow him, he will collect the information I need. And bring you back very quickly. We will wait just some few minutes for you to join us. And then we will have the Holy Communion together.
… God bless you. You can begin to go. Amen!
ADMINISTRATION OF THE HOLY COMMUNION.
Now, as soon as they serve you the Bread, you
can eat it and just be THANKING GOD; that you have a privilege to partake of this Bread. And then when they serve you the Wine, hold it till we have all been served; and then we drink it together as one (1). And we will pray accordingly at that time.
The Lord Jesus the very night in which He was betrayed took bread. And when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
.. And when they serve you the Bread. Just go ahead, eat it. And just keep on Praising God.
When we drink the Wine tonight, you are going to cry to the Lord God; you are going to say: Lord, let this be the last night I will spend in the valley.
.. That will be your Prayer!
So those of you who are just coming in; if you run to the serving centre, you can collect your bread; collect your wine. I will give you just one (1) minute, and then we shall pray!
Let us stand on our feet, please. You will cry to God with all your heart; when you drink the Blood tonight, cry to Him and say: Father, let this be the LAST NIGHT I will ever spend in the valley; the last night I will ever spend in sorrow, the last night I will ever spend in sickness, the last night I will ever spend in failure. The last night I will ever spend in the valley!
Also, after the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, This cup is the new Testament in my Blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Yes Father! Thank you Lord; let this be the last night I will ever spend in sickness. Let this be the last night I will ever spend in weakness. Let this be the last night I will ever spend in sorrow. Let this be the last night I will ever spend in defeat. Let this be the last night I will ever spend in despair. Let this be the last night I will ever spend in the valley!
GO PRAYERS: Almighty God, the Ancient of Days. By the Power in the Holy Spirit, I demand that this will be the last night I will ever spend in any form of sickness; any form of ache, any form of pain, any for of defeat, any form of sorrow, any form of valley experience. Let my valley experience, Lord; ends with the Year 2018.
Thank you Father; in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen. And so shall it be in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen!
GO DECREES: You will leave the valley tonight! This is the last night you will ever spend in sickness; the last night you will ever spend in sorrow; the last night you will ever spend in defeat; the last night you will ever spend in weakness;
the last night you will ever spend in failure. It shall be so, in Jesus Name – Amen.
Praise the Lord! Now, go ahead, shout hallelujah to Jesus – Hallelujah!
Very quickly, let us take our off. Normally, after the Holy Communion we want to say: “Thank You” to the One who was so Gracious as to lay down His Life for us.
So take your offerings very quickly and lift it up to the Almighty God. And pray – pray by faith, and say: Father, let this be the smallest offerings I will ever give for the rest of my life.
… Go ahead, talk to the Almighty God.
Prosper me so rapidly that this will be the smallest offerings I will ever give again for the rest of my life; the smallest ever!
Thank you Father; in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen.
So with joy, dance to the nearest basket, drop your offering. Shake hand with as many people as you want to.
And then we will have a break, and return by 9 O’clock for the Service of Songs. The Choir is ready to sing and Praise the Almighty God, till we enter into the New Year.
Glory be to God! Over to the Band.
