1. By the Special Grace of God, The RCCG Special Holy Ghost Service is here again.
Next Month (March 2023), will be the Anniversary of The RCCG Holy Ghost Service – 37th Year Anniversary.
We started in the Year 1986 and by the Grace of God, we are still going Strong.
The Theme for Next Month (March 2023) RCCG Special Holy Ghost Service is: “THE GOD OF BREAKTHROUGHS”.
And it is going to take Place from Thursday, 2nd of March to Sunday, 5th of March 2023.
And then, if you love your friends, you will tell them not to miss what is coming because we are going to discuss: “The God of Breakthroughs”.
That automatically means that there will be many Breakthroughs!
2. And then next week by the Special Grace of God, we will be having our Annual RCCG Special Divine Encounter Services on Monday, 6th February; Tuesday, 7th February and Wednesday, 8th February 2023.
There will be no RCCG Monthly Divine Encounter Service for the Month of February 2023 on that Moday 6th of February 2023 since we are going to have one in the Evening between 6.00pm to 7.00pm every of the 3 days stated (6th to 8th February 2023).
It will interest you to know that the Story we will be considering during The RCCG Special Divine Encounter Service 2023, that the Lord has asked us to look at for the 3 days is: “The Story of the Woman with the Issue of Blood”.
I have thought that you can’t Preach more than one Sermon from that but the Almighty God have shown me that even after the three (3) Special Divine Encounter Service Days, we will just be scratching the Surface.
The Almighty God is going to surprise many People through that Story next week!
And so because there won’t be the Monthly RCCG Divine Encounter Service for the Month of February 2023 on that Monday morning; there will be no Shiloh Hour either for the Month of February 2023.
But during the RCCG Special Divine Encounter Services for Year 2023, God will take care of Shiloh Hour too.
Glory be to God – HALLELUJAH!
Last month we were looking at the Size of God under the heading “WONDERFUL”.
And you would remembered we looked at how long His Leg is – He is seated in the Heavens and His legs are so long that they still touch the Earth.
Very long legs and wonderfully long legs!
And then we looked at His Arms: Just trying to find the size. And we discovered that His Arms are Everlasting. That from Everlasting to Everlasting He is God.
But of course, I thought we had finished with the Size of God, now we should move on to the Nature of God.
So I informed the one who will be Ministering before me that today, we will be talking about the Nature of God. And I had made some little Preparations for the Topic.
Well, I can almost say I am happy that God spoke to me that, that is not what I will be talking about. Because after what the Young man did, what is there left for me to say?
… I think we should give a big round of applause for the First Speaker – Pastor J.T Kalejaiye!
I mean, not only did he cover the whole Story about God being Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, etc. There were so many big Grammar that a Mathematician was frightened.
But the Lord said to me, “Son, we haven’t finished with My Size. In the future we will talk about My Nature.” Because my son (the First speaker) covered a lot of Grounds.
But there are one (1) or two (2) things still left about His Nature:
I mean, when you hear that God is Love – You begin to think of a hug!
But when you hear that He is also the Consuming Fire, you will say ‘wait a minute, I am not so sure about this hug.’ Particularly when you hear that, “whosoever the Father loves He chastises.” You won’t find out that, “whosever the Father loves, He kisses.”
So, we will be talking about the Nature of God later on: I don’t know when. It could be April or May. Maybe we will get to that.
But tonight we want to continue from where we stopped concerning: “THE SIZE OF GOD”.
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?
… That is what we looked at last Month!
Incidentally, for those of you who might be wondering: “why is daddy sitting down again today?” I am fine! There is nothing wrong with me. I am Healthy, I am Strong.
But whether you believe it or not, my Daddy told me that the wind is going to blow here tonight – Amen.
And somebody will know before we finish, that the wind has blown – Amen.
And it is not going to be a Gentle wind at all – it is going to blow away every Problem in the Life of someone – Amen!
Believe me honestly, and I am speaking on behalf of my Daddy: The Red Sea is going to open for someone tonight – Amen.
You can take it from me (His son) talking to you on behalf of my Father when I say to you: Dry bones will live again tonight – Amen.
There will be a Sign to somebody that the Wind had blown because somebody who has never spoken in Tongues before will speak in Tongues tonight – Amen.
Anyway I am just informing you about that! But apart from that, let’s face facts – It is more comfortable to sit down than to Stand (Laughter)!
So I think this sitting down idea might be a very Good one, Particularly for somebody who is going to be eighty-one (81) next Month (March 2nd, 2023) – Hallelujah!
When I was Younger, there is a Language we used – Somebody has tremendous influence, we will say: “He has long legs.”
… Have you heard that one before? Yes!
When someone can reach several Places easily, you will say ‘he has long arms.’
So, long legs Plus long arms means INFLUENCE.
Tonight, we are going to be talking about: THE INFLUENCE OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD.
And I am telling you, when it comes to influence, Nobody can come near my God.
When we talk about Area of Influence, the influence of a President is limited to his Country.
If there is an Order from Aso Rock that there is a curfew – “Nobody should go out after 7pm.”
God forbid! There will be no curfew in Nigeria – Amen!
That Order covers only Nigeria. It cannot extend to Ghana.
But even the President – As influential as he is in Nigeria, cannot control whether you Fast or you don’t. Is that correct? Yes, Sir!
He hasn’t got the Power to say, you must or you must not Fast. He hasn’t got the Power to say that the husband should not come near the wife.
Years ago there was a Head of State in this Country (Nigeria) and we were very good friends. Very, very good friends! We were very close.
And so one day we were alone, you know, just having fun. Everybody had gone – all those who want to see the President, they had gone home. So, it’s now Oga and and his little friend.
And suddenly he asked a question: “Who is more Powerful – The President or the Pastor?” And I said, the Pastor of course! He said, I know you will get it wrong.
He said, I can decree that there will be a curfew then you won’t be able to go to Church in the evening. I said, that’s true! But can you decree that the barren will become Fruitful? Can you decree that the Lame will walk? He said, I surrender!
Tonight I Decree: everyone of you considered barren, this Year (2023); you will carry your children – Amen.
With the backing of my Father in Heaven – Who is the Most Influential of all the influentials, I Decree to someone here or reading now on the Label of DMC: You will never weep again – Amen.
If you’ve received that, let me hear you shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
WHAT IS THE AREA OF INFLUENCE OF MY DADDY (THE ALMIGHTY GOD)?
Philippians 2:9-11 tells me,at the mention of His Name, all knees should bow: of things in Heaven, things on Earth and things Underneath the Earth.
And so, I won’t take too much time, because tonight I want you to Pray. And after that we will be Ministering to those who need Special Prayers.
But according to Psalms 139:1-12, you will discovered that His Influence is everywhere – Top of the Mountain, the bottom of the Ocean, everywhere!
So, we are going to look at:
I. His Influence in the Heavens.
II. His Influence on Earth, and
III. His Influence underneath the Earth – as quickly as I can.
And if He ask me to stop anywhere, you can be sure I will stop! Which means we may continue from there.
1. HEAVEN IS HIS THRONE – His influence in Heaven is Wonderful.
Psalms 115:3 says: But our God is in the Heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath Pleased.
… He is the Original Majesty in Heaven.
In Psalms 2:1-5; He says, don’t bother yourself; let the heathen rage, let so called ‘big’people begin to make Plans against you. It says, “He that sits in Heaven shall Laugh.”
… Now, that’s Influence, men!
Let all the so called ‘big’ ones make all their Plans concerning you. It says, your Father in Heaven, seated on His Throne will just Laugh.
And so, anybody who is Planning something against you is wasting his time – Amen.
And according to Malachi 3, that some People don’t like – But it is a very important Chapter.
If you read it, that is where where God said, “I am the Lord, I Change not. Before He now came to Verse 8-11 (Malachi 3:8-11)
Because His Influence in Heaven is absolute, He says: I can just open a Window in Heaven (Just one Window) and Pour you a Blessing that you won’t have room enough to receive.
He can open a Window in Heaven; and if He wants, He can Close it: Nobody queries Him there!
I can never forget the Story – Some of you have heard it before. But it is very necessary to hear it again.
You remembered the man who was a very Successful man, and had a quarrel with his wife. He didn’t know who the wife was! And the wife said, “by the time I finished with you, you will trek in Lagos.” And the man laughed! “How can I trek in Lagos?”
… Because the man had many cars.
But the woman set all Evil Forces against him. To cut a long Story short; by the time he came to Ebute Meta (RCCG National Headquarters Parish), he had only Fifty Kobo (50k) left in his Purse.
And he said, “If I eat with this money, where will I get money for fuel? If I buy fuel with this money what will I eat?”
That’s when he came to Jesus Christ. He came to the One Who has Influence everywhere.
The day he was sharing his Testimony; he was dedicating two (2) brand New Mansions.
But he said one thing: “I gave my Life to Jesus Christ and the Heavens opened.”
I Decree today over everyone of you listening to me or reading now on the Label of DMC; the Heavens will open – Amen.
… So, my daddy has Influence in Heaven!
But then that also means He has Influence in the Heavenlies.
There is a Place between the Earth and the Heavens that we call the Heavenlies.
I. He has influence over Angels.
If you read Isaiah 6:1-7, the Bible would tell you that the Angels are always singing Praises to Him, crying: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!
… And by the way, thank you Choir. You did a very Great job tonight. Thank you!
You might not know it but for the first time since you have been Ministering; you got me Standing – Hallelujah!
… The Angels were singing: Holy, Holy, Holy.
And How many Angels has He?
Revelation 5:11 calls them: Ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
In other words, the Writer of the Book of Revelation said, “I don’t have a way of describing the Number.” We are not talking of Billions, Trillions. We are talking of ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands.
And How Strong are these Angels?
The Bible says in Psalms 103:20, that the Angels excel in Strength.
So, if you find somebody who thinks he is Strong; he doesn’t even know the meaning of Strength.
How Strong is an Angel?
In Isaiah 37:33-37, the Bible tells us one Angel killed a hundred and eighty five thousand (185,000) Soldiers in one night.
… So you can understand that your enemy is in trouble!
Because, for each and every one of us, there are at least two (2) Angels guarding us.
And I think I have told you the names of my own two (2)
How many of you remembered their names? – One is called Goodness, the other is called Mercy.
For how long are they going to follow me? – All the days of my life!
*That’s why God is called the Lord of Hosts. He is the Commander-In-Chief of all these Angels. And He can send these Angels on errands. They can go anywhere, anytime, to take care of business.
Like Daniel 6:1-22, when Daniel was shut up in the Den of lions and the King came early in the morning and said, “Daniel, Servant of the Most High God, your God whom you serve, has He been able to Preserved you?”
Daniel replied, “O King live for ever, my God has sent His Angel and has shut the mouth of Lions.”
I have Good News for somebody here today or reading now on the Label of DMC: No Lion will eat you – Amen.
The Angel shut the mouth of Lions: we will talk a little more about that later.
And the more interesting thing is that, Angels can open doors without keys.
In Acts 12:5-11, Peter was kept in Prison and some Soldiers were there guarding him. And then the King wanted to bring him out the following day so he can be executed.
And in the Night, an Angel came in – The doors opened on their own accord. And thank God for Peter, he was having a nice sleep, because he knew that he is serving a God who can take care of situations.
Every one of you in any form of Prison, you are coming out today – Amen.
Angels can open doors and lead you out of Prison.
Physical Prison, Spiritual Prison, Financial Prison – You are coming out today – Amen!
And some of you would remember: I don’t want to tell too many Stories tonight. But I will do as He leads.
You’ll remembered the Story of that Lady who was barren because the mother-in-law didn’t like her. As soon as she got married, the mother in-law went to the Market and bought a loaf of bread, charmed it, gave it to the girl and said, “eat and use it to block your womb.” And the girl ate!
From that moment she stopped menstruating. And then the Almighty God arranged for us to hold a Program in Oyo; and she decided to Fast in Preparation for the Program.
The day we were to arrive, in the afternoon, she was sleeping and she had a Dream -:Some People came in dressed like Doctors and they put her on her back, operated her.
They took out a rope, and began to draw it out. At the end of the rope was something that looked like bread and black. They sewed her up and then they disappeared. She woke up, and found that after all these years she has started menstruating.
… I told you that the last time I heard about her, she had five (5) children.
Every one of you who has been put in any form of Prison or the other, you are coming out tonight – Amen.
But the Angels can do a lot more:
Maybe one of these days we will take a Holy Ghost Service that we will just discuss Angels.
Because in the same Acts 12:18-24, it was an Angel that gave a King a slap.
The King that wanted to kill Peter, an Angel smote him. And when the Angel smote him, it was a Signal to worms. Worms just came from nowhere and ate the King up.
The King was sitting on his Throne, an Angel slapped him. But before he hit the Ground, the worms had finished him up.
I want you to know that this is in the New Testament – So don’t say I am Old Fashioned; because what I am about to say is related to something that happened in the New Testament.
Anyone trying to block your way to your Destiny, an Angel will slap him – Amen.
So, one of the things in the Heavenlies are Angels.
But then, in the Heavenlies, we also have what we call the Sun, Moon and the Stars – And He controls them, because His Influence is there.
In Psalms 121:1-8, He can decide to tell the Sun not to smite you by Day; the Moon not to smite you by Night.
What’s the Implication of that?
It means the Sun can smite. Even the moon can smite.
You would Probably have heard of something they call Sun Stroke.
When some People expose themselves to Sun in a Particular fashion, they can get a big Problem called “Sun Stroke” – It means that the Sun smote them.
But that is not even the important thing.
The important thing is because His Influence is in the Heavenlies. He can tell the Sun, don’t Set; Moon, don’t rise!
In Joshua 10:12-14, Joshua said, Almighty God I am doing Your job. I don’t want the Sun to set. And immediately, the Sun “Stood Still”; the Moon “Stood Still”, until Joshua finished his Assignment.
Do you know I have the confidence in me to tell you – It doesn’t matter what may be happening, until you finish the Assignment God has for you, you are not going to die – Amen.
I was approaching the age of sixty (60), my children were Preparing for big Celebration and I was walking around on this Camp Ground very sad.
Sad because at that time, the Church was only in about fifty five (55) or fifty six (56) Nations.
I was crying to God, “Father, what am I going to do? I’m going to be Sixty (60) and I’ve not even started my Assignment. You want this Church to go throughout the world. What am I going to do?”
He spoke to me and said, “Son, I’m the One Who decides when the Sun will set.”
… Thank God the Sun hasn’t set for Twenty-one (21) years!
I Decree tonight in the Name that is above every other name: your Sun will not set – Amen!
His influence over the Sun, Moon – Of course, we calculate time, and time to calculate age, is such that He can even ask the Sun to go backward.
In 2 Kings 20:1-11, a King was sick and God sent His Messenger to go and tell him, “put your house in order, you are going to die.” He said, God I don’t want to die yet.
God said, alright, Prophet go back and tell him, I give him fifteen (15) years extra. He said, that is Great! How am I going to be sure that this will happen? You know, once God has spoken…
The Man of God said, what Sign do you want? Do you want to Sun to move fast forward or to go back. He said, the Sun going forward, that’s no big deal. Tell the Sun to go back. And the Sun reversed!
Like my children in America would say, “the Sun backed up!”
And I remembered telling them the Story of something that reversed, and they corrected my American English.
… But you have heard Testimonies of People who lost years.
Someone who had reached a certain age, and God spoke from one of the Altar: whether the one here, the one in Britain, the one at the University of Ibadan and several other Places.
And God said: there is someone here, I’ve taken ten (10) years off your age – So that someone who was already several years past child bearing suddenly became Fruitful again.
You won’t die before your time – Amen.
But God also has the Power to tell the Sun to move speedily forward: so that what is supposed to be your Portion in the Future can be transferred to you – So that you can begin to enjoy it straightaway.
I will give you an illustration – In Matthew 15:21-28; there was this woman whose daughter was vexed of the devil. She came to Jesus Christ: Please, help me; have Mercy on me.
And Jesus said, I can’t give the bread of children to dogs. She said, I know I am a dog. But Please, just give me a little crumb.
You see, what happened was that Jesus meant to say that the time for the Gentiles is yet to come; we are dealing with Jews. And the woman said: I know I am not a Jew, but I can have a little foretaste.
The time for the Gentiles didn’t come until Acts 10, when Peter had to go to the house of Cornelius. At that time, even Peter had to struggle with God, “I am not supposed to go to anyone who is unclean.”
And God said, the time of somebody being unclean, that one is gone!
But God stretched to the Future with His Everlasting Arms and grabbed a Miracle and brought it to the Present for that woman.
I Prophesy to someone tonight or reading now on the Label of DMC: That Position you are supposed to reach years from now, before the end of this year (2023); my God would take you there – Amen.
Of course you know that Stars can guide.
In Matthew 2:1-10, when some Wise men came from the East, they wanted to see Jesus. They saw a Star and the Star led them to where Jesus Christ was. As soon as it got there, it stood there.
The Almighty God controls the Heavenlies.
Thank You Father!
The Lord asked me to tell someone here tonight, or reading now on the Label of DMC:
… He said the fellow would understand.
He simply said: This one will not be miscarried – Amen.
2. HE HAS INFLUENCE ON EARTH.
Let’s look at some of His Influence on Earth:
I. His Influence on Rain:
You know Rain is so important. According to Isaiah 55:10 – Unless the rain falls, there would be no food for the eater.
If rain stops falling, we would soon be all dead, because there will be no food to eat.
But in Amos 4:7-8, the Bible tells us that the Almighty God can decide to Rain on one City and leave the other City completely dry. So that from the Cities where it didn’t Rain, they will have to go to the City where it rained for food.
So Rain is a Blessing!
Ezekiel 34:26 tells us that there shall be Showers of Blessing.
But do you know that too much Rain; too soon, can create a Problem?
I was talking to my children in Bayelsa some days ago when I went to see the area devastated by flood last year: Too much Rain; too soon can become a Problem.
And so, Joel 2:23 says He gives us Rain moderately.
I Pray for somebody here today or reading now on the Label of DMC: It will Rain on you! It won’t be too much Rain; it will be the Rain you can handle – Amen.
DMC NOTES: You can get to read the Full Text of Pastor E.A Adeboye’s Special Father’s Prayer on Bayelsa State on this Link:
II. Part of the things in the Earthly realm where He is influential has to do with the Wind and Sea.
When you read Job 38:8-11, the Bible tells us that it is God who controls the Sea. If you come near the Sea you’ll see the waves.
When the waves are coming, you would think: oh, the sea is going to overrun everywhere. No! It gets to a Place and then it will just fall back and go down back into the Sea.
Why? Because God shut it up with doors.
In that Job 38:8-11, God said to the Sea, hitherto shall you come and no further – He controls the Sea.
And in Mark 4:35-41, the Bible tells us, “What manner of man is this that the Wind and the Sea obey Him?”
– He can command the Sea to open when the Wind blows on it;
– He can command the Sea to close up when the Wind stops blowing;
– He can use the Wind to bring Blessings.
In Numbers 11:31-32, the children of Israel needed meat, and He sent the Wind to go and bring quails and they camp mightily.
III. What about His Influence on Animals?
You know the Lion is supposed to be the King of Animals; but it is my Father who controls it.
For example, in 1 Kings 13:1-25, He told the Lion, a Prophet has been disobedient. He said, kill him but don’t eat him.
Now, Lions don’t normally kill except they are hungry. Ask anybody who knows about them. Or they are threatened.
The Prophet was sitting down behind a tree, and the Lion just came, killed him and left him there as an example.
And then in the Story in Daniel 6; the Lions saw Daniel coming but the Almighty God told them, “don’t touch this one, because he is a son of the Lion of Judah. Throughout the night, you find one Lion playing with another.
But the following day, as soon as they pulled out Daniel because I am sure the Lions must have grumbled but, “Lord, you are the One Who made us to eat flesh: and this is flesh coming and you said, don’t eat it.” God said, don’t worry, tomorrow you will have a Feast.
The following day, those who threw Daniel into the Den of Lions came with their wives and their children; and they went down into the Den of Lions. And God said, “hey Lions, this is the Feast I Promised you.”
There is something called the ‘Law of Substitution’. It is in the Bible – Proverbs 11:8, it says: The Righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.
I Decree tonight: those who put you into the Lion’s den will replace you there – Amen.
He can use a donkey to Prophesy; a donkey to speak (laughs)!
The Lord said, one of you have been crying to God – You are saying: “God, pay me Special Attention during this Fast.”
He said, I will pay you Special Attention – Amen.
You know the Story in Numbers 22:1-35. There was a Prophet that God said shouldn’t go somewhere but he wanted to go. And God decided to talk to him through a donkey.
When you need help, God can use an animal.
How do I know? I have told you this Story long ago. Many of you have never heard it:
I was a small boy, Probably between 5 to 6 years old. And my elder sister got married and moved in with her husband living in another Village not too far away from my own Village. She described the Village to me as a small child.
And I just felt, I want to go and see my sister, since the place was not supposed to be far. I didn’t tell anybody at home I was going anywhere. My sister didn’t know I was coming. My mother didn’t know I have left home.
Then I got to the Jungle: and my sister had said, when you get to this place turn left. When you get to another place turn right. I turned right, turned left, and suddenly I found myself hopelessly lost in the Jungle!
I didn’t know the way back home; I didn’t know the way to the farm.
As Young as I was, all I did, I just lifted up my eyes to Heaven, I said God help me!
… Do I hear Somebody say: God Help me tonight?
And by the time I looked down, I saw a little puppy dog – absolutely white. Just white puppy dog. “There was no dog here when I was lifting up my eyes!”
And the way the dog was behaving very friendly, it seems to be making Signs as if to say, follow me!
Well, there was nothing else I could do, so I followed the dog. Believe it or not, the dog led me to my sister’s farm.
And when they saw me, they all shouted, “how did you get here?” I said, “I followed that little dog.” They said, dog? I said yes! They said, there is no dog in this farm. We looked outside, there was no dog.
If God has to send an animal to help you, so may it be, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
IV. His Influence over the Sea extends to the Fish living in the River and in the Ocean.
You know the Story of Jonah, in Jonah 1:17; when they threw him into the Sea, God Prepared a big fish tank to swallow him. And God said to the fish, swallow him, don’t digest him.
After he had repented in Jonah 2:10, God said to the fish, go and vomit him – don’t vomit him into the Sea, because he doesn’t know how to swim. Take him to a dry Land.
In Matthew 17:24-27, when some People wanted to embarrass the Lord Jesus Christ about the issue of Tax, remember what He said to Peter: “go to the river, take your hook. The first fish you catch, open its mouth, there will be a gold coin there – it will be enough to pay our Taxes. And he went!
And God has spoken to a fish, ‘swallow a coin.’ Fish don’t eat metals. But the fish obeyed. And He spoke to the fish, ‘be the first one to be caught by the hook.’ And the fish obeyed.
In Luke 5:1-7, you know the Story: When Peter fished all night and caught nothing. And the Lord said, throw your net to this side and see what happens.
The Bible Scholars said, the fish gathered to hear Jesus Preach; and so God told Peter throw the nets! And the fish began to jump into the net.
I don’t know how God is going to solve your Problems; but whatever method He wants to use, it will be done tonight, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
Thank You Father!
Now, I want to say Amen to this one;
Because God says, there is someone here tonight, or reading now on the Label of DMC:
As soon as the Rainy Season begins, your Blessing will begin to Multiply – Amen.
V. I can talk about His Influence over Birds.
If you read 1 Kings 17:2-6, the Bible tells us that God sent Ravens to go and feed Elijah twice a day. And like I have always shared with you:
Everybody knows that Ravens love bread, every bird loves to eat bread – Ravens in Particular love meat.
But they took bread and meat to Elijah twice a day: They did not eat the food on the way, and they did not miss the Address.
And so I am decreeing: The devil won’t eat your Miracle; and your Miracle will not miss your Address – Amen.
VI. What about His Influence on Men?
… Because we make a big chunk of things on Earth – Men.
Proverbs 19:21 says, There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the Counsel of the LORD, that shall Stand.
And he can do whatever He likes with the heart of anybody:
– He can harden the heart – like He did in the case of Pharaoh;
– He can even tamper with the heart a little, like in Daniel 4, when a King had to eat grass for seven (7) years.
But He can use a King and a servant to fulfil the Dream of somebody He loves.
For example, in Genesis 41:1-44 (you know the Story): Joseph had had Dreams, and somewhere along the way he had met this Servant of Pharaoh. He interpreted the Dream correctly for that fellow; and he told him, don’t forget me here oooo.
The fellow got back home, but Probably forgot Joseph.
But when God was ready, Joseph was in Prison and the King has two (2) Dreams. By the end of the day, Joseph was already Prime Minister.
I don’t know who God would use – It could be a President, a Governor, a King, a Servant; but one way or the other, I am convinced, the Purpose of God for your Life will be fulfilled – Amen.
You know, when I talk about you Laughing last: I have always told you a Story about a girl who was jilted by her “Supposed Lover” on the Wedding Day.
I mean, it was the day my wife and I went to the Registry. And there was this Lady, beautifully dressed, about to be married. But she didn’t know the boy was just deceiving her. She waited and waited, the boy didn’t show up.
Somehow, she survived! And then she got another man – Married another fellow in the Military. And the boy friend that jilted her also joined the Army.
And then there was a Coup, and the New Commander-In-Chief appointed her husband as a Military State Administrator. And they also appointed the boyfriend who jilted her as the Aide-de-camp (ADC) of her husband.
So that anytime the Lady wanted to go to the market, she would stand back for the Aide-de-camp to open the door.
She laughed last!
Somebody here or reading now on the Label of DMC will Laugh Last – Amen.
Oh, Thank You Father!
The Lord asked me to tell somebody: No more Asthma – Amen!
Thank You Father!
He also asked me to tell somebody: Don’t listen to the devil; I have not finished with you yet – Amen.
3. HE HAS INFLUENCE UNDERNEATH THE EARTH.
You know, Psalms 24:1 tells us that: The Earth is the LORD’s, and the Fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
… Everything underneath the Earth, they belong to God.
In Isaiah 45:3, God talks about the Treasures of Darkness, Hidden Riches of Secret Places. He was talking about the Treasures Underneath the Earth.
I am sure you know that all the Precious Stones all come from Underneath the Earth.
In Haggai 2:8, the Bible says: The Silver is mine, and the Gold is mine, saith the LORD of Hosts.
Someone Pointed out to me sometimes that Job was an Oil Magnate. I said, where do you find that?
He said, Job 29:1-6 – where Job spoke about rocks pouring out Oil for him.
When I heard that one I said I better decree to somebody among my children, that by the Special Grace of God, very soon, you too will become an Oil Magnate – Amen.
Thank You Lord!
The Almighty God says: Whatever it is going to take to Silence your Mockers, I will do it – Amen.
When we talk about Underneath the Earth, God was also referring to Forces of Darkness: He controls the Host in Heaven, the Host on Earth – that’s men, Soldiers, etc. And He controls the Host underneath the Earth – That’s the Host of darkness.
All I can say briefly here is that, even the devil must take Permission from God before he can attack anybody.
All you need to do is read the Book of Job Chapters 1 and 2;
When the devil went to God and said, I want to attack Job. God said, you can go to his far but you can’t go further.
And then somebody said, in that case you are saying God can give Permission to the devil to attack me.
No ooo! You are a Child of God – You are not an Ordinary Servant. Job was a Servant and you are a Child.
Nobody Performs experiment with His Children!
In the Name that is above every other name; no evil would befall you. And no demon would be able to Penetrate through to you – Amen.
But let me Close with this one – Your area of Real Influence is where your word is Law – When you speak and it happens.
I am the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). When I said: my children, this year you are Fasting for Fifty (50) days, everybody in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) said, Amen!
One (1) or two (2) said, only fifty (50) days? We have been waiting for a hundred (100) days.
Don’t worry, hundred (100) days would come!
But that does not mean that any other Denomination must Fast because my word is not Law among them.
The Word of God carries weight everywhere, all over the Universe.
Psalms 33:8-9 says: Let all the Earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
Why must we fear the Lord? It says: For He spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.
Psalms 62:11 says: God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that Power belongeth unto God.
Power belongs to who? Power belongs to God!
In Isaiah 55:10-11; He says: So shall my Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void,
In Luke 7:1-10 – You know the Story of a Centurion whose Servant was Sick and he came to Jesus Christ. When Jesus said, I will come and heal him, he said No! I know Who You are: speak a Word only and my Servant would be made well.
Do I hear somebody say: Lord, speak to me!
We will take a Case Study very quickly, and I won’t spend time over it:
Oh, Thank You Father!
… Daddy, I want to say Amen to this.
The Lord says, someone here tonight, or reading now on the Label of DMC, should enlarge his Capacity to give Thanks.
He said because, a Flood of Blessings is on your way – Amen.
In Mark 10:46-52, you know the Story of Bartimaeus. He was begging by the roadside, he heard that Jesus was passing by and then he began to cry. The People told him to shut up! But he kept on crying.
Jesus heard him and said, go and bring him. They brought him. Jesus asked him, what do you want? And he said, I just want to receive my sight. And Jesus spoke a Word, “Receive your sight!”
I. One word from the One Who is Influential all over the Universe; and suddenly darkness became light.
I decree in the Name that is above every other name to everyone of you here today or reading on the Label of DMC, there shall be Light – Amen.
II. One Word was what God said and suddenly Poverty came to an end. That man never begged again!
In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, I decree: you won’t die Poor – Amen!
III. One Word and all his enemies became his Servants.
The People asking him to shut up were the People God said, ‘Go and bring him.’
You know, I have told you once; it might not be a good idea for God to wipe out all your enemies. Some of them should remain!
Because if you say: Thou Preparest a table before me in the Presence of mine enemies (Psalms 23:5). Then there have to be some of them to see you enjoying.
Maybe He shouldn’t kill all of them: He should just Paralyze them or turn them to your Servants.
IV. One Word from the Lord and a man who would have died barren; who would never have married, suddenly became the Center of Attraction.
I wasn’t there: but I am sure after what happened to Bartimaeus, he became very famous. And I am sure he got married.
… When we get to Heaven we will know the details.
V. One Word from the Almighty God and a man who had been Stagnant for years (a beggar). He never got a Promotion; If he got any it Probably would be ‘Chief Beggar.’
And the man was Promoted from the roadside to be the Center of Attraction.
VI. Just one Word from the Almighty God, and his Sickness disappeared.
VI. One Word from the Almighty God and he was no longer in Bondage.
Let someone shout again: Lord, speak to me!
When I was Preparing this Sermon, I was wondering how I can conclude because there are so many other things from this issue of Influence of God.
And the Almighty God whispered to me a Song – it is a Yoruba Song. But I will tell you what it means in English
It simply says: “You the Owner of the Earth, Please walk by me.”
Oba to nile, wa rin ile mi koja (The King of our land, come and walk through my Land)
Oba to nile, wa rin ile mi koja (The King of our land, come and walk through my Land)
Rin ile mi koja (Walk through my Land)
Ka ye mi ko di otun (So that my Life can be Better)
Rin ile mi koja (Walk through my Land)
Ka ye ko ni itumo (So that my Life can have meaning)
Oba to nile, wa rin ile mi koja (The King of our land, come and walk through my Land)
Rin ile mi koja (Walk through my Land)
You, the Owner of the Earth, walk by me so that my life can Change; so that Your Influence can transform every bit of my situation. Just pass by me!
I. You passed by the man in John 5:2-9; who had been among those People who were hopelessly sick for Thirty eight (38) years. You walked passed him, he got his healing.
II. You walked by the man called the Mad Man of Gadarenes in Mark 5:2-20;
Because the Bible tells us that the area where that mad man was, Nobody can pass by there.
But my Father walked by him, all the demons left when God spoke a word, GO!
… And the man that was supposed to die a horrible death became an Evangelist.
III. You walked by the Tent of Abraham and all Prophecies became a Decree;
And the man who was trusting God for the Fruit of the Womb for almost a hundred years became the father of Isaac.
He has influence everywhere! If only you can walk by me today, my Life will never be the same again.
How many of you would like to say: Father, walk by me today? The DMC FAMILY MEMBERS!
Which is Good News for those of you who have not given your Life to Jesus Christ.
He is here already, and He is giving you an invitation, “Come unto me, all ye who Labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28).
Come and taste My Influence, I will make everything New for you.”
But it’s up to you to accept His invitation. It’s up to you to reject His invitation.
He said in Revelation 3:20, Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice, I will come in with all My Influence.
… But if He knocks and you don’t respond, He will move on!
So, those of you who are here or reading now on the Label of DMC and you would love to surrender your Life to Jesus Christ:
– The One Who can Influence every facet of your Life;
II. The One Who can touch those who can help you so that they can help you;
III. The One Who can tell your enemies, “leave him alone!” And they will have to obey.
If you would accept His invitation, He would receive you, and you would become one of His Children. And from now on, all things will become New.
If you want to give your Life to Jesus Christ, do so now! And we will Pray for your Salvation, and God will turn the tide for you.
Today is your day of Salvation, don’t wait for your friend. It is between you and God alone. He has a reason fo bringing you today. So surrender to Him now!
… Thank you those of you who are Clapping. God will Strengthened your hands.
Now begin to call on the Lord Jesus Christ – Pray to God: ask Him to be Merciful to you. Ask Him to Please save your Soul. Tell Him you accept Him as your Lord and Saviour. Tell Him that you want Him to come and live in your heart. Tell Him that you will serve Him from now on.
And the rest of us, let’s Stretch our hands to these our New Brothers and Sisters, and intercede for them – That the One who saved our Souls will save their Souls also. That He would forgive all their sins.
Please, Pray for them!
Thank You Father! In Jesus’ Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
