1. The 1st Friday in the Month of August will be inside the Minister’s Conference because our Annual National Convention for Year 2018 is here again starting from the 6th to 12th of August 2018. So there will not be any Holy Ghost Service on the 3rd of August 2018 being the 1st Friday in the Month of August but it will now take place on the 10th of August 2018 during the Annual National Convention of the RCCG.
The theme for the Annual National Convention of the RCCG this year is: DOMINION.
The word is enough to cause you to be there because to have Dominion is to be in Charge/Control. Not just to be healthy but to be controlling the hearts of others. You will be amazed as to how many people have Dominion. As am preaching now there are some people behind the scenes with dominion – if they tampered with the microphone that’s all. But as the Lord lives, by the time the Annual National Convention will be over, in every area of your life; you will have Dominion!
2. Tonight has been a wonderful one. If you observed that everything has been done by the girls. And then look at that fantastic sermon.
Many people watching us are already waiting for something to write on to attack me that I allowed woman to preach.
So let me tell you well ahead of time; it is written that on the last day: I will pour out my spirit on ALL flesh and your sons and daughters shall Prophesy.
The anointing on your daughter is not for frying chicken but to Prophesy.
Every man here tonight was brought into this world by woman. When they named those who are Covenant Partners of Jesus Christ in Luke 8: 1-3; the bible did not mention any male there but they are all girls. The people that went to anoint the body of Jesus Christ after His death were all women. The first fellow to see Jesus Christ after He rose from the dead is a woman.
… So let the girls shout Praise the Lord.
So those of you talking down on the girls listen to me; that your excuse was that it was a woman who caused Adam to sin is not true and I will prove it to you: Adam sinned because he wanted to sin. Read your Bible carefully; Adam was the one God gave the instructions: don’t eat the fruit. So when Eve ate the fruit and brought it to Adam; Adam should have said: aaaahhh woman what have you done. But as soon as she gave him the fruit he ate it (he is waiting to eat the fruit). When the wife of Portiphar came to Joseph, he said No but Adam did not say No. When the wife of Portiphar began to pursue Joseph, he ran but Adam didn’t run.
Let the girls shout Praise the Lord and let the brother shout Hallelujah!
There is an enemy connected to every man according to 1 Corinthians 15:26 – The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
So everybody must face this final enemy.
This enemy has many agents including sickness as we have in 2 Kings 13:14 – Now Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died.
It does not matter your anointing, you will face this death – it is appointed to every man to die once and then judgement.
Another agent of death is poverty according to Proverbs 10:15 – The rich man’s wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty.
Another agent of death is bondage – Spiritual Bondage. In Marks 5: 1-15; where someone under Spiritual Bondage is trying to destroyed himself. It is when someone is in bondage that he will think of suicide.
There is a link between sickness and sin. In Psalms 107: 17-20; the bible says fools because of their transgressions and iniquities are afflicted.
For example in Marks 2: 1-12; when they brought that man to the foot of Jesus Christ, the first thing that He did was to tell the man: son your sins are forgiven.
The bible says that the soul that sinneth shall die.
For your Victory over sickness to be Permanent, then you should sin no more.
In John 5: 2-14; a man sick for 38 years was brought to Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ healed him and told him to sin no more.
There is a link between poverty and sin.
Proverbs 13:15 says: Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.
So for you to have a Complete and Permanent Victory over poverty then you need to obey God’s Commandments completely. Deuteronomy 28: 1-12; talks about when you hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, you will no longer borrow from Nations.
There is a link between bondage and sin.
1 John 3:8 says he that sineth is of the devil.
And the devil has a right to claimed such.
So therefore to be free from the bondage, then you must come to Jesus Christ.
1 John 3:15 says: Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
Matthew 1:21 says: And she shall being forth a son and thou shalt call his Name JESUS for He shall save His people from their sins.
So if you want Freedom and Victory tonight, then you need to get Jesus Christ quickly so that His blood can wash away your sins.
That is why Jesus Christ said in Matthew 11: 28-30: Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.
Because if you come to Him, His blood will cleanse you from all sins.
2 Corinthians 5:17 says: If any man be in Christ, He is a New Creature; old things are passed away and all become new.
So a word is enough for the wise. If you therefore wants Compete Victory tonight then come to Jesus Christ. He is the Lord of Hosts and He can give you All Round Victory – Physically (because by His stripes we are healed); Materially (because my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus); Spiritually (because you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free).
Jesus Christ is the Truth. And the bible says that whosoever the son shall set free shall be free indeed
So if you are here now and yet to give your life to Jesus Christ then before I count from 1 to 10; come and stand before the altar. He promised that anyone that comes to Him, He won’t cast away. Today is your day of Salvation.
For those of you in front of the altar now and those coming; cry to the Lord and say Father please have mercy on me, save my soul, forgive my sins, wash me clean in your blood and I will serve you for the rest if my life.
Let the others stretch out their hands to these ones and asked the one that saved you to also save them too. Asked that the Lord will be Merciful to them, save them, forgive their sins, wash them in His blood and let them serve you till the very end.
GO PRAYS: My Father and my God; thank you for your Words and for all these people who has come to give their lives. Please remember your Promise that no one that comes to you that you will cast away. They have come to you; please received them in Jesus Name. Have Mercy on them, wash away their sins and write their names in the Book of Life. From now on, fight their battles for them. Let them serve you till the very end and don’t let them ever backslide. In Jesus Name we have prayed.
BIBLE TEXT: 2 KINGS 5: 1-14
In the Name of the One who called me: This very Night, your Victory will be Total and Permanent!
When we talk of Complete Victory (All Round Victory); it simply means that there is no area of your life whereby you are suffering any defeat again. It simply means that there is no reproach in your life.
Naaman has a reproach in his life that reduced the Victory in other areas of his life to nothing. He was on top of his career, wealthy, famous and loved by the King but he was a leper. This reduced all that he had to nothing.
In Genesis 16: 1-5; Sarah was despised by her maid (Hagar) who made jest of her because she could not give birth to a child for her husband Abraham. Then God moved and the one despised lived happily.
Listen to the Testimony tonight especially the one from my Pastor that gave birth to a child 24 years after marriage – God simply moved on his behalf.
For someone here tonight, it does not mattered how long your problem(s) may be; my God will move on your behalf.
In 1 Samuel 1: 1-20; Hannah was loved by her husband but she has a reproach as she was barren. The second woman tormented her – of what use is a fruitless tree? But God moved on her behalf.
On behalf of someone here tonight (or reading); God will move.
In 2 Kings 4: 8-17; the Shunammite woman has everything (she was a great woman) with the exception of something. She was wealthy, influential and great but was barren until God moved.
God can move in various ways to remove the reproach in your life.
One of such ways is to: Silence the Mockers.
… If the Lord lives, that will be the theme for the Holy Ghost Service for the Month of September 2018.
The Almighty God will silence all the mockers in your life in Jesus Name.
In 2 Kings 4: 1-7; the creditors had already moved in on the poor widow, about to sell her sons and then God moved.
In 2 Kings 2: 19-22; the elders in the land of Jericho said to Elisha: look at our city, everything is pleasant but we have a reproach. God moved and the reproach removed.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, any reproach in your life will be removed today.
Daddy does not know the kind of problem(s) that you have that you can not even discussed with anyone including your Pastor; in the Name that is above all Names that problem(s) is over tonight.
PRAYER: Father, every reproach in my life, let them be removed tonight. You know the problem(s) that I cannot discussed with anyone, please removed it tonight. All the reproaches that will not allow my Victory to be Complete, Absolute and Permanent remove it. All those secret battles that I have been fighting alone; give me Victory over them tonight.
Tonight, we will be using Naaman as our Case Study because when God finished with him; his body was like that of a new born baby; his Victory was Complete, Absolute, Permanent and he was never a leper again.
The journey to this Victory started within his house. There was one maid there who was brought in from a foreign country who said: how I wish this General can visit a Prophet in her native land as there was help at hand there.
For someone here tonight, God will ensue that the help at hand that you need, God will arrange it for you.
So many a times, what we need is what is called First Aid – that is Help immediately that you needed it.
Psalms 46:1 says that: He is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Psalms 27:10 says: When my father and my mother forsake me then the LORD will take me up.
… There are a times that you will need help and you will need such immediately.
In Exodus 15: 22-25; when the children of Israel were on their way to the Promised Land. They got to Marah and cannot get water to drink because the water there was bitter. Everybody was ready to bounced on Moses. Then God showed him a leaf that can turn the water to sweetness.
In 2 Kings 4: 1-7; for the widow; what God used to turn things around for her was the pot of oil already in her house and the empty vessels with her.
In the Name that is above all Names, that Help that is already near you that will lead you to Victory; God will revealed them to you.
In Matthew 17: 24-27; when the people asked Jesus Christ and His disciples to pay tax. God guided Peter to go to a river nearby to go and catch a fish. And the fish already has money in its mouth they could use for it.
That person God will send to you might already be near you now already.
PRAYER: Father, send help to me RIGHT NOW, immediately and not tomorrow morning.
As the story continues, we saw that through the help of this little girl, suddenly Naaman was connected to the one who will help his destiny.
As God lives, before this Month ends, God will connect you to the Helper of your Destiny.
Watch from the story very well; the girl spoke to the wife of Naaman (she didn’t do anything about it). But while speaking to her, others heard, told Naaman about it. Naaman told his King about it, his King wrote and send a letter to the King of Israel. The King of Israel got the letter, tore his dress and somehow someone told Elisha about it.
God works in a mysterious way. I don’t know how God will do it tonight; He will do it in a mysterious way for you and connect you to the Helper of your Destiny.
In Exodus 4: 1-16; Moses was the one God called to be sent to Egypt. He told God that he stammers and God brought Aaron to him. Later by the time we get to Exodus 17: 8-13; when the Amalekites came to attack the Israelites; it was the same Aaron and Hur that God used to be lifting up the hand of Moses as long as the battle last and they won.
In Deuteronomy 34: 9; God had a plan with Joshua to link him up with Moses.
Consider Joseph; God revealed to him that he will be great and that his family will bow down to him. Do you see how God arranged it: he was sold by his brothers to Portiphar. Portiphar’s wife tried to seduce him, he refused, sent to prison, met two (2) officers of the King in prison (one was killed and the other one restored to his position in the King’s Palace). The King had a dream, he cannot interpret it and then God brought him to the Palace.
How God will do it I don’t know but in the Name of the One who sent me; the one who will help your destiny, God will connect you with that person.
PRAYER: Father, you can use any method just connect me with the one who will help my destiny. Whichever mysterious way you want to use, just connect me. Please do it soonest … this very Month.
1. The Lord asked daddy to tell someone here tonight that He will heal you from head to toe.
2. The Lord said that there is someone here that the force of darkness tormenting you won’t return again.
3. The Lord asked daddy to tell someone here that your pregnancy won’t come down until maturity.
4. The Lord that there is someone here that you belong to a gang. He said that the gang will be wiped out before the end of this Month. So run for your dear life and leave that gang and run to Jesus Christ or you will not see the end of the Month of July.
As we continued the story, we heard that God connected him to the one who will gave him Permanent Victory. But he nearly destroyed the Plan of God for his life – the Man if God said to him: go down to River Jordan and wash in it seven (7) times and he got angry.
Naaman has two (2) big personal problems:
1. He was a proud man – He was a successful General. He said are there no better rivers in my country than river Jordan?
2. He was a man of temper. The bible says that he went out in rage.
James 4:6 says: God resists the proud and give Grace to the humble.
If proudness is your problem, then you need to check that very quickly.
Ecclesiastics 7:9 says that anger lies in the blossom of a fool.
Daddy does not know what is your own Internal enemies. The elder has a saying that if the enemies within does not kill you then the External enemies cannot kill you.
Is it appetite that is your own problem like Esau? Is it to get money at all cosy like Gehazi that is yours?
Romans 8:31 says – What shall we then say to these thing? If God be for us, who can be against us.
The Bible did not answer the question in the first part. If you dare the devil he will flee from you; dare demons, you can cast them out and even the herbalist cannot do anything to you because He said that no weapon formed against you shall prosper.
But if God is for us and you are against yourselves then we have a big problem.
The Yoruba will say when they prayed that God will not allow my inner mind to destroy my destiny.
PRAYER: Father, don’t let my Inner Mind destroy my Destiny. Don’t let me be my own enemy. I know that you have great plans for me, please don’t let me destroy the plans myself.
Then something happened, as Naaman was going away in a rage furiously one of his servant stopped him to advise him. And if you know anything about the Military; even when Generals are not angry before you talk to them you must take a salute for permission. But this man was in a rage. But because of God’s Special Plans for him, a servant was able to stopped him and advised him.
When God has made up His mind to Help you, nothing can stop Him.
Daddy knows that God has planned this Program for someone. He has proposed in His heart to Help the fellow and
He will do everything to Help such fellow.
In 1 Kings 19: 1-8; Elijah was frustrated and asked God to kill him. But God said No, I will not kill you because you must reach your goal.
In John 21: 1-19; after Jesus Christ told told Peter in Luke 5: 1-11 that he won’t be fishing for fishes again but fishing for men. He forsook all, followed Jesus Christ until He died. Then he said: I will go back a fishing again after denying Jesus Christ three (3) times. But Jesus Christ went after Him again. He went to fish overnight and caught nothing and Jesus Christ appeared on the scene and asked him three (3) times if he loved Him in order to confirm.
There is a love of God that can hold you tight no matter how hard you try to backslide. May God extend such to you tonight.
Those of you who thinks they can distract me (daddy); it is too late as he has made up his mind: living or dead that he will stay with Jesus Christ.
PRAYER: Father, don’t let go of me. Hold fast unto me. Help me all the way even when everything within me is pushing me to leave you no matter how hard I tried. Please, hold me tight so that I can finish well and strong.
… You will not fall by the way side as you will finish well in Jesus Name.
1. The Lord said to someone because you survived the Month of June, you will not die again.
2. There is a saying that: the rich Also cry. The rich also have their problems. The Lord says that the proverb will never apply to you again.
3. The Lord says to someone, pay attention and see the beginning. From this Month, your adversaries will disappeared one by one.
There is the role of paying attention to details. If God is talking to you; for your Victory to be Total, pay attention to details. Naaman was told to wash in River Jordan seven (7) times and not five (5) or six (6) times. He dipped himself in river Jordan six (6) times nothing happened and it was the 7th time that he came out clean.
In Deuteronomy 28: 1-13; the bible says that if you hearkened diligently to the Word of God to do ALL the things that He commands you that is when things will happen.
Look at 2 Kings 4: 1-7; the Man of God told the widow to go and borrow many empty vessels from her neighbours and not a few and then closed the door. She was told that as she pour the oil into the empty pot, she should set them aside once full. If the widow had borrowed empty vessels without shutting the door, the oil will not pour.
Daddy prays that the Almighty God will will help us Christians to pay attention to details. Many of us doing things our way and expects God to do something but we are not paying attention to details. We gave offering without giving it cheerfully forgetting that God loves a cheerful giver. He said bring all the tithes into my house. It is God that says put me first.
Daddy happened to be a Mathematician but he knows the importance of details. In a right angled triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two (2) sides. But we know from the law that if the angle is a little more than 90 degrees, it won’t be so.
If you want to deal with God, deal with Him with details. If you want to serve Him then serve Him wholeheartedly.
In 2 Kings 13: 14-29; Elisha was about to die. The King met him and said: my father my father what should I do? Elisha said no issues, take a bow and arrow and shoot – he said the arrow is for the deliverance from Syrians until they are consumed. Then he asked the King to take the arrow and smite the ground and the King smite it only three (3) times and stooped. Who asked you to stop? The man of God was wroth that who asked the King to stop as they will just be Victorious three (3) times but should have smitten like five (5) or six (6) times. If the King has been wise, he should immediately have kept on doing it.
Pay attention to details because God is the God of details and He kept watch over everything that you do.
The bible says that every hairs on your head has a number – this is to show you how detailed God is.
A lot of us today will look at us (daddy) and see the Glory but they don’t know the details.
PRAYER: Father, the Grace to Obey you completely give it to me today. The Grace to obey you in details all the way in all of your instructions give me Lord.
Finally, what do I do so that all my Victory will remain Permanent forever?
After Naaman received his Victory, he came back to say thank you. He returned to Elisha in 2 Kings 5: 15-19 – he said see am now clean. The Man of God said congratulations. Then he said please sir this is money, clothes, this and that.
He came back to say thank you.
The reason why most of us never had more than one breakthrough in life is because we never come to testify about what God did for us. We won’t witness what God did for us to others.
The elders has a saying that if a child is grateful for what he receives yesterday, he will received another one.
The elders says that the person who is ungrateful is like an armed robber that stole your valuables.
If that is to be true then I regret to say that there are many armed robbers among the Christians. Many cannot say thank you to Jesus Christ. He has healed so many people but they would not come out to testify so that others can listen to them.
Someone says that I am shy but you are not shy when you had problems.
The widow in 2 Kings 4: 1-7; after the Miracle of multiplication came back to Elisha to testify. That mad man of Gadarene in Marks 5:20 after Jesus Christ had drove away the demons in him, came back to say thank you am free and am ready to go everywhere with you. But Jesus Christ said go and tell others. This fellow called Bartimeaus who was blind, as soon as Jesus Christ opened his eyes, he went everywhere to testify. In Marks 1: 40-45; when Jesus Christ cleansed the leper. Jesus Christ told him don’t tell anyone. But he said: how can I keep quiet – am a leper before but now clean so I will tell everybody.
Many of us will say that they got born again because someone told them about Jesus Christ. But since then you have not told anyone about Him.
You know that the Almighty God has Power and with Him nothing is impossible but you keep quiet and you cannot say thank you.
1. The Lord says that it is possible for someone here today not to know failure again. Who is that fellow? This time around, all your Joyful expectations shall not fail.
2. The Lord says that there is someone here tonight, very soon He will fulfill Psalms 23:5 for you – Thou prepareth a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
Learn to say thank you to God. Appreciate God for what He did in times past and He will do more for you. Thank Him for the Victory He gave to in the past and He will make it Permanent.
In the next ten (10) minutes all daddy wants you to do is just to Thank Him – thank Him for all what He has done for you in times past.
… May the Almighty God accepts your Thanksgiving. May He give you a Greater thing to thank Him for.
PRAYER: In just three (3) minutes, in every area of your life that you are still fighting battles talk to Him about it as He is ready to give you Complete Victory Physically, Materially, Spiritually and Maritally in your Finance, Ministry, Office or Academics. Tell Him that you must have Total, Complete, Absolute and Permanent Victory tonight.
GO PRAYS: Lord of Host, I commit all these your children to your hands; before sunrise, let everyone of us sing Songs of Triumph in every area of our lives in such a manner that by the time we wake up, we will wake up to another realms. Let your children have Absolute Triumph. Thank you Lord, in Jesus Name we prayed.
PRAYERS FOR THE DISCIPLES
