I want to appreciate God this morning, for this Great Privilege and opportunity to speak to fellow Workers in the Vineyard.

I want to appreciate Daddy and Mummy GO, for accepting somebody like me.

You now, I understand myself, that I am not at times, regular but for somebody to accept me, then the Person must be very, very tolerant.

I remembered the first time I met Daddy (for the first time); I didn’t know he was the one! I was asking him that I was looking for Pastor Adeboye and he was the one at the door.

He said: Okay Sir, you are welcome Sir. This is Pastor Adeboye.

I said: Ha, there is trouble today oooo. I mean, this is the man I am looking for; I am asking him. I am already in trouble. I will never forget that day!

And he told me one thing. He said: God has asked me to come to Sokoto and Ordain you for the work He is committing unto you. So what do you want?

He asked me to come! – Right there, I told him and he said, I am coming.

I didn’t know how to explain it – And indeed, he came! I didn’t send him transport money. I didn’t send him anything. God knows – because I didn’t send for him but all the same, he came!

And Daddy was very happy – Even though it was very hot in the North then.

On one occasion he told me: Joseph, next time when you are holding Meeting, Please, do it outside. I don’t know how you People are surviving it.

But on the day he commissioned me, I would like you to listen to some of the things he said, and take note of them – For you to know that I didn’t forget because it was a Special Day in my life.

… I don’t know how Special today it is for you.

If it is Special, everything that happens here or as you read along  would be Noteworthy.

He said that God was looking for a Man to use to replace Saul. But he found a Man at the backside of the desert.

… I will not talk further details.

He said, when the Rider of the Ass came down from the Ass; all the People that were shouting Hosanna did not shout after the Ass again.

So, it became clear that their garments that they were laying on the ground, and the Ass was walking on, was not for the Ass – but for the Rider.

The day the Rider stops riding you, the applause ends!

“The Oil will not flow into the head until it finds the right head.

… You are Students of the Bible; go and do the rest.


I have been asked to speak on: THE DOUBLE PORTION.

The context of that Topic is in 2 Kings 2:1-15 – An event that took Place on the day Elijah would be taken to Heaven. Or at that Period when Elijah would be taken to Heaven.

1 And it came to Pass, when the LORD would take up Elijah into Heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.

2 And Elijah said unto Elisha, Tarry here, I Pray thee; for the LORD hath sent me to Bethel. And Elisha said unto him, As the LORD liveth, and as thy Soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they went down to Bethel.

3 And the sons of the Prophets that were at Bethel came forth to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy Master from thy head to day? And he said, Yea, I know it; hold ye your Peace.

4 And Elijah said unto him, Elisha, tarry here, I Pray thee; for the LORD hath sent me to Jericho. And he said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy Soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they came to Jericho.

5 And the sons of the Prophets that were at Jericho came to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy Master from thy head to day? And he answered, Yea, I know it; hold ye your Peace.

6 And Elijah said unto him, Tarry, I Pray thee, here; for the LORD hath sent me to Jordan. And he said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy Soul liveth, I will not leave thee. And they two went on.

7 And fifty men of the sons of the Prophets went, and stood to view afar off: and they two stood by Jordan.

8 And Elijah took his Mantle, and wrapped it together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground.

9 And it came to Pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I Pray thee, let a Double Portion of thy Spirit be upon me.

10 An

d he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.

11 And it came to Pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a Chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into Heaven.

12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the Chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two Pieces.

13 He took up also the Mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan;

14 And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the LORD God of Elijah? And when he also had smitten the waters, they Parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.

15 And when the sons of the Prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The Spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.

That day, Elijah woke up in the morning and said to Elisha: Please, stay here, for the Lord has sent me to Bethel.

Surprisingly, Elisha was supposed to obey but he said unto him: “As the LORD liveth, and as thy Soul liveth, I will not leave thee.”

That looks like disobedient. It actually looked like outright rebellion. But it was not! It is the Sprint behind that reluctance.

He simply said; Sir, as long as you are alive, I don’t think I will leave you to go on this journey alone. If you are going, I am going with you Sir. I was called to follow you.

So they went together!

And Elijah was not annoyed. He didn’t say: Look, I told you to stay, go back!

No, No, No! – Which means that Elijah was trying to see whether he will consent.

The fact that you are called does not mean that God will DUMP the Anointing in; you have to Prove that you have High Value for it and you have compassion for it.

“High Quality Gold are usually not available on the surface – There is a depth to go.

Every other Prophet knew that Elijah was on his way out as confirmed in 2 Kings 2:3 and 5 – At Bethel, they knew; at Jericho, they knew!

The fifty (50) Sons of the Prophet in each of the Stations called Elisha: “Do you know that your Master is going today?” He said, yes I know it. Hold your Peace!

They were trying to distract him because they have been busy Prophesying: “Thus saith the Lord, Elijah is going. Ha, I saw a Vision, Angels, Chariots; Elijah flying to the Sky and he is not returning.”

Thus saith the Lord: Elijah is going! – One hundred (100) Prophets all Prophesying!

Several efforts were made to Persuade Elisha from following on – Elijah did his best to Persuade Elisha to turn back on four (4) Good occasions: One at Gilgai, one at Bethel, one at Jericho and then when he was going to cross the Jordan.

… Four (4) Good times!

You will be required to Prove your tenacity, your hunger, your desire; if you really want this Anointing.

The knowledge of the departure of Elijah did not speak any anxiety or concern in the heart of one hundred (100) Prophets. They were happy to know that Elijah was going – “Thus saith the Lord: Elijah is going!”


Only one (1) man saw the VACUUM that was about to be created.

… Only one (1) man! – Knowing that this was his last chance of ever getting anything from Elijah.

Daddy GO, the Lord will Preserve your Life – Amen. You will live long – Amen. You would be Healthy; you will be Strengthened everyday by the Lord – Amen.

Mummy GO, the Lord will Preserve your Life – Amen. You will live long – Amen. You would be Healthy; you will be Strengthened everyday by the Lord – Amen.

But let me ask you: How many of you would know that a Man like Elijah is going and you will be happy to say – I saw the Revelation; oh, he is going? Today Elijah is going and that ends it!

May the Visions d Revelations you receive spur you to a Positive Action – Amen.

But when your Goal is just to see Vision and share it; that is the end!

They shared the Prophecy, they did nothing about it. But one (1) Man said: Now that I know he is going today, I won’t leave him until I get what I want – Hmmmm!

So, Elijah did the last round: “I am going to across Jordan! You know: There is no Fellowship there, there are no Prophets there. You know once I cross Jordan, nobody is there. I just want to go and be alone.”

Elisha said: Sir, as your Soul lives, I am going with you Sir – And they got to Jordan!

… I always like this Place in the Story;

And Elijah looked to the left and to the right, and he removed his Mantle – That is the Outer coat that he was wearing. And he rolled it. He didn’t say anything, but he communicated:

“I want to Pass through this Place, so water “CLEAR” so that I can Pass.”

And he strucked it! And then the water gave way; and Elijah was walking on dry ground.

Elisha said: “Thank God I came today oooo. I wouldn’t have seen this Miracle!” – He said, expressway through Jordan. I like this!

Then they finished crossing – No Sons of the Prophet, not anybody around.

Do you know that many times when God wants to do something Special on you, He doesn’t want anybody around?

… You need to have Private, Personal Time with God – Halleluyah!

Elijah said: this boy, now I know you know what you are doing.

All those other ones, they are just Prophets. So tell me what you want, because time is up and the Carriers have arrived.

Hahaha! And he said Sir, I want to thank you for this opportunity.

You see, when you are Ordained and you are Anointed and the Oil really flows; Fire will answer!

There is no Person Ordained that the Fire of God does not confirm – On that day, Fire will answer!

… When I am talking about Fire, I am talking about Power, Anointing.

So, Elijah said to him: What do you want?

He said Sir, I just want “DOUBLE PORTION ELIJAH” – What I have seen in Elijah all these Years now that you are going.

Elijah said, this boy, you have asked for a ‘Hard Thing’. It is hard; but it is not impossible!

Okay, if you see me while I will be taken, if you see me; you will have it.

Somebody will see the Glory today or as you read- Amen.

He was not asking for Fame and Popularity – Fame and Popularity will vanish in a moment.

He was not asking for Title or Greatness – No!

He was not asking for Wealth and Riches.

Let me tell you: If the Value for your Calling and Anointing is not more than money; Satan will give you money. And he knows you will abandon your Calling.

If he knows you want money, Satan will say: “This man will do anything for money.” – You will abandon your Calling.

“Demas has forsaken me, having loves this Present world.” – 1 Timothy 4:10.

Satan will bring you all the money you want and Position it in a Place where you cannot do Ministry again – You will be managing the money until death comes.

Elisha wasn’t asking for Wealth and Riches; he just wanted the Anointing to serve and fulfil his Call and Destiny – He asked for a “Double Portion” of what he saw in Elijah.

And Elijah said: It is hard but not impossible.

… You have asked for a Hard Thing, that I understand. Nevertheless, if you see me when I will be taken from you, you will have it.


It is not enough for a Man to gain what he has. When you are asking him for times two (2) of what he has; at least he has to give you what he has – What he has, and get you another one!

Of course, getting a Second one would have to be from where he got the other one he had.

So, even Elijah has to make now an Appeal to God: If it is what You gave me, I would have just Passed it on; the boy is saying he wants “Double Portion” – So You need to double what You have given me.

And he put a condition: If you see me – if you are focused. All things are Possible!

When you hear them say: ‘All things are Possible’; it is because there is something that is hard, that is difficult.

So, when it is hard and it is difficult; you look for the Power to do the impossible or achieve the impossible; then it becomes Possible!

… And Jesus gave us the Power to crack difficult things and impossibilities.

Jesus told the man whose son was demonized in Mark 9:23 – Jesus said unto him: If thou canst believe, all things are Possible to him that believeth.

And Jesus said in Mark 11:23-24: For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this Mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to Pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye Pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

… So, if you can see it, you can have it!

What does it mean to SEE?

If you can believe it; if you can visualize it, if you can have a conviction within you as you can agree that there is a Promise; then, you can have it.

So if you believe it, then you start saying it. When you start saying what you believe, then it is sure to be yours.

So, let us see the Reality played out:

As they continued in the journey, I can see Elisha stepping a little bit back!

Your eyes are not by the side; even though you can see some measure of the side.

So he stepped behind, and started looking at Elijah.

So Elijah is the focus – He was concentrating: “I am getting this Double Portion” and he was following.

Then suddenly, the Carriers came! And they said: Who is this Man that is so close to him? We were told to bring one (1) Man. They separated them and jack Elijah up!

Elisha opened his eyes, he said: I can see! My father,my father, I see you. For you to know – I see Chariots of Fire, Horses of Fire, Angels of Fire. I see everything. I see you, I see you!

Somebody will see it today,and he will catch it today or even as you read – Amen.

So by the time Elijah escaped through the sky, and had gone; Elisha came to himself. He said, I saw him – Chariots of Fire. Is this what they look like? Horses that are burning. Then Elijah’s Mantle couldn’t go to Heaven with him. It dropped!

As the Mantle dropped – That very outer garment that Elijah uses to strike the Jordan River. As it dropped, he (Elisha) Picked it. He said: “This is the only Physical Inheritance my Master left for me.”

… This is the Physical Inheritance!

He tore his own dress; he said, from now, the Change has started, the old has gone!

He put on the Mantle of Elijah. He said: Surely, this is Elijah standing – “Double Portion Elijah”.

… I saw him and I got it!

I have seen him: Ha, my father, my father – Chariots of fire, horses of fire.i saw it.

And he was rejoicing.

Before long, he was back to Jordan.

He said: This water, you came back? I thought the road should still be there?

He said, no problem! Solution is here. Elijah is here!

So he removed the same Mantle, repeated what his Master did – He struck the water!

And he said: Where is the Lord God of Elijah that says a thing and it comes to Pass?

The water gave way!

He said, I told them I got it – From the time I saw it, I knew I got it. And he Passed through the water.

As he crossed the River – On the other side, the fifty (50) Sons of the Prophet were waiting on a Hill and gazing to see what becomes of Elijah. And they were out of sight, before Elijah took off.

Now that Elisha came back, they looked at him and they said: “The Spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha.”

… You know they are Prophets, they can see Visions. They saw Glory.

Do you know that the Anointing transforms even your Appearance?

Today, the Fire will fall on you – Amen! That Oil that has come on you will begin to Manifest – Amen.

Before then, he was their Classmate. But now, when he came back, they all BOWED before him – They said Sir, God has Promoted you!

Ordination is Promotion – Don’t deceive yourself!

But before we activate the Fire, you need to be warned.

Today, we have more False Prophets in Nigeria than True Prophets – Not all of them were fakes from the beginning. Many of them were True Prophets of God (Most of them) but they became False somewhere along the line.

So you need to be warned!

Daddy GO is not Ordaining you and sending you out to go and join the barrage of False Prophets -:No, No, No! Not to join the barrage of False Prophets.

Three (3) things turn People into False Prophets:

1. Love of the World.

… Anything you want from.the Father, ask the Father for it!

One of my friends had Breakthrough, and money started flowing. But he wanted the money to increase. So he began to sell Anointed Handkerchiefs and so on.

So, I sent another friend to him;

I. I said – Tell him that I said that: God has already blessed him. He doesn’t need money from Handkerchiefs to increase.

II. Tell him that I said: Of all of us in our Set by the Grace of God; he knows that I have Credentials that I can Sell – “Near Visible Anointing” but I am not selling.

That I say that he should stop it because I don’t want him to get killed.

And I told them, friend, tell him that me, I said so.

In case he doubts you, he should look for me – I told that one, because they are very close.

God said to Balaam: Don’t go with them – Clean and clear in Numbers 22:12.

They Promised him money, then they came back, they doubled the money; trippled the money, four (4) times; more Honour, more Position.

And Balaam in his stupidity, told them: If you give me your house, plus Silver and Gold; I can’t go beyond the Word of the Lord.

Numbers 22:18; And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the Word of the LORD my God, to do less or more.

But he told them: “Now that you have increased the money, let me see whether God will change His Mind.

Malachi 3:6 says: For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Numbers 23:19 says: God is not a Man, that He should lie; neither the son of Man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it Good?

… Don’t go, is don’t go! – Don’t come back and ask again.

God knew that Balaam’s heart was in the money. He said, he is a man and he has chosen to go.

God blocked him and said, since you want to go, go! But don’t say what I don’t tell you to say.

His eye was on the money! He went on his way, an Angel blocked him and wanted to kill him.

Let me tell you: Every time you want to fight a Genuine Man of God, you face the risk of being killed.

Every time you want to attack a Child of God that is Precious unto God, you face the risk of getting killed.

I use to tell People: Don’t be my enemy because, you will get killed. The Angels won’t even announce to me. I will only realised they have killed you before I know that they killed you because of me.

The Angel, without announcing to Israel, went to kill Balaam because Balaam wanted to use the Gift of God against the People of God – He was blind!

When the Love of Money finish your heart, your Gifts of Vision and Revelation would be removed.

… That may be a Rhema which somebody out there needs even as you read now

Were you seeing Visions clearly? Were you hearing God clearly, and you stopped hearing God? Check – When did you stop hearing God? When money was becoming more of your concern!

When money and the care of money – Money to finish Project, money to buy a New House, money for a New car. When money becomes your concern and everything is interpreted in the Light of money!

You want to Promote People – Those who give you more money.

You want to recognize People – Those who give you more money.

… When money becomes a yardstick, the Vision stops coming.

So Balaam executed: “I am going to get more money.” And he didn’t see an Angel trying to destroy him. So he struck his donkey. The third time he struck the donkey, the donkey now spoke with a Man’s voice.

Thank God for His Wonders!

And the donkey’s understanding was opened: “Master, Master! What have I done that you are striking me like this?”

… I thought Balaam would be afraid!

He said, because on the day of Promotion, you are misbehaving. We are told, and you are refusing to go!

The donkey said: Master, from the day you bought me, have I not faithfully served you? Have I ever behaved like this before? Can you not see the man trying to cut off your head?

Then his eyes were opened! He came down from the donkey, he surrendered.

He said: Angel of the Lord, Please, I won’t go again.

If you repent of your Love of money today, God will restore you! But if you don’t repent you will remain Spiritually blind!

So, the Angel told him: Don’t say what we don’t tell you to say. Only what God puts in your mouth.

Yes Sir! I warn you.

If I was the one, that is the time I would have told the Messenger: Sorry, carry on, on your journey.”

He went still; he couldn’t Perform to the interest of his People.

And after he failed woefully, he finally called the People – He said: Look, I can’t curse them (forget about that)! But I can make their God to kill them.

The people said, what?

He said: The battle that couldn’t be won by swords and knives; can be won by women.

He said, send your beautiful women – Married and Single, to infuriate the Camp of Israel. Give them everything they wanted – Water, food, free! Give them free sex. You see, once they start enjoying the sex, they will keep on coming back.

Then, get them to attend the Feast of your Idol – Their God hates a rival god. And if they can worship worship that idol, He will disown them, they will start dying.

… Balaam knew the ways of the Lord, but he was foolish.

2 Peter 2:14-16 says: Having eyes full of Adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable Souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous Practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb Ass speaking with Man’s voice forbad the madness of the Prophet.

Jude 1:11 says: Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and Perished in the gainsaying of Core.

By the Grace of God, I have Preached the Gospel from 1974 till now – I have never charged anyone how much I will collect. I have been to Places where they didn’t have money to give.

I remembered a Crusade in the interior of Taraba State – This Place where they have a lot of Salt Mines. By the time the Power of God broke out, and Miracles happened; at the end of the Crusade, the Organisers came and said: Sir, we have invited many People, they didn’t come!

Sir, we don’t have Money. But we are Farmers – They went and brought yam, salt, rice.

I told them, Sirs, I cannot carry these items to Sokoto. I said, don’t worry, God knows that you don’t have money. I didn’t come here to Preach because of money. My bills have been Paid before I came here.

So, I Prayed for them!

I didn’t have Truck, I didn’t have anything at that time. I just used to go with my car, and then we stage the equipment and hold Crusade at that time.

But whilst I was in that Crusade, a certain Man went to Sokoto to look for me, and didn’t find me. He sent Messengers they didn’t get me. Then they told him I was in a Crusade at Ukari.

He said, that’s not far from my Place. What is he doing there?

They said, Crusade!

So, he went to the Village immediately, dispatched his driver. He said that they should come.and beg me to come.

I said I wasn’t going. Then, the Holy Spirit said, go on Saturday. But tell him, he must Pick you very early in the morning, 6am and return you before 12noon.

And I was going to cross the river to go to his Place. So he dispatched the driver, we used Ferry to cross; and they took me. I saw the man. I led him to Christ.

I said, why was he looking for me?

He told me why.

I said Sir, you looked for me too late. You should have looked for me six (6) Months ago. If you had looked for me at that time, such and such a thing would have happened. I have nothing to do for you now, they are going to Retire you suddenly.

He said no, it is not Possible!

I said Sir, let’s forget it. If they shoot you now and you drop dead, are you going to Hell or Heaven?

He couldn’t answer my question. I said Sir, that means that you are going to Hell.

I said, let me do something for you Sir – Let me first lead you to Christ, so in case you die now, you will go to Heaven. His house, his door, his windows, everything bullet proof.

So he knelt down, I led him to Christ.

I said, now Sir, let me give you something, that if they try to strike you, they will fail. I will Put the Power in you.

He said, is that so? – So I laid hands on him and he fell.

… The man is tall, has intimidating Posture, fierce looking.

He fell and he couldn’t get up!

After sometime, he stood up. He said “A small Man, Big Talk.”

I said okay Sir, see you Sir.

He said, can I have your telephone number? I said you can have it Sir.

When I was going, he brought out an envelope that Paid all the bills for that Crusade – Unsolicited!

I don’t know whether you understand? – He Paid the bills.

I was going from Ukari to Bauchi for the next Crusade – The bill of that Crusade, he Paid also.

You don’t need to sell Anointing – The Owner of the work will Sponsor the work.

If He doesn’t Sponsor it, it means He doesn’t want it to be done – Period!


When do People become False Prophets?

1. When they love money and they love the world! When they love the things of the world; it will dazzle before them.

… They will become False Prophets.

2. Secondly, when the Spirit of the Lord departs from a Man and an Evil spirit takes over!

I. So, the Spirit of God let Balaam, and he became a Soothsayer.

II. The Spirit of the Lord left King Saul and an evil spirit came and troubled him – 1Samuel 16:14.

… When do people become False Prophets?

III. Eli’s sons, they Passed the Bible School, they were Ordained – They did the Religious Trainings; they were very Good at their work. But the Bible says: “They did not know the Lord”. They were sons of bellial.

So, if you come to Bible College to get a Certificate and go and earn a living. You are in the wrong Place if you don’t know the Lord.

1 Samuel 2:10-17 – They did not know Lord, they did terrible things; they despised the glory of God.

Why I said they didn’t know the Lord, is because they didn’t know the terror and the anger of God – They thought that they could manipulate God. They said nothing will happen!

Their father called them and warned them: what you are doing is wrong, stop it! They didn’t mind their father.

Eli used a soft hand on those boys. He just told them – Stop it, Stop it.

Ha! He should have put a barricade.

Then a war broke out! And because the Lord spoke five (5) Years it didn’t happen; ten (10) Years, it didn’t happen – They thought what the Lord spoke had been forgotten. Then there was war, and they suffered defeat.

They said, we know what to do. God refused to fight with us, we shall carry His Ark to the Battle ground. That time, He will have no option.

… They were very brilliant guys – Very, very brilliant- but, very, very foolish.

… You can be a Professor and foolish.

They didn’t know the Ways of the Lord. So they took the Ark,

According to 1 Samuel 4:10-11 – They were defeated inspite of the Ark.

The Ark was captured!

When the News got to Eli in 1 Samuel 4:17-18, Eli fell down and broke his neck (I will explain that).

May the deed of the People under your Authority not be the cause of your own death – Amen.

For those of us who don’t like to rebuke those who are erring and Put them back; you may share in their trouble.

… Today, I am giving you what God had used to keep me.

When Daddy said: “After the Rider of the Ass came down, nobody put down his garment again for the donkey”.

I understood that the day God abandons to walk with you, and use you; you are finished!

So I always remembered that I am not the Miracle worker; I always remembered and tell myself: “You are not the one that answered their Prayer; I always reminds myself: “I am not the Healer” – He (God) is the Healer.

I tell myself and I tell my friends: When I am under Anointing and I am Ministering, I tell my wife, I tell my children “I am not your brother – It is the Lord at work!” If you don’t remove that eye of my being your friend and look at the Lord, you will not get anything.

That is why People don’t get Miracle from the Ministrations of those they are familiar with – You get familiar with Daddy GO, he will Pray; all others will get Miracles, you won’t get your own because you think he is your friend.

You must Sanctify the Lord! You need the Power of the Anointing? Sanctify the Lord!

Many times when I am feeling bad in my body and the Anointing comes, and it is trying to heal People; I say, Oh God, this Anointing is going to heal People, let it heal my own body too.

I am believing You for my own, Please Lord. I lay hand on myself – as I am laying hands on others, I recover my own Healing.

I Sanctify the Lord, because I know I am not the Healer. And God has been Gracious to me.

Eli broke his neck!

When a firstborn Donkey is born, it is to be Redeemed by replacing it with a Lamb. But in Israel, they said: “If you will not replace that Donkey with a Lamb, break it’s neck. It must not be useful to anybody” – Every firstborn belongs to God.

Eli was a type of firstborn.when he fell and broke his neck, his Redemption was revoked; he died like an “Unredeemed Donkey” – Go and read it in your Bible!

He became Uncleaned like an “Unclean Animal” – Not accepted on the Altar.

Listen, this is the Word of the Lord for you: THREE (3) THINGS NOT TO TOUCH.

1. Do not touch GLORY.

2. Do not touch GOLD.

3. Do not touch GIRLS.


David touched the Glory of God in 2 Chronicles 21 – Seventy thousand (70,000) People died in three(3) days.

Nebuchadnezzar touched the Glory of God, he became a nondiscrete animal for seven (7) years – Daniel Chapter 4.


Achan touched Gold and died.

That Gold that he took was the Firstfruit that should have been taken totally to the Altar. He stole it – He stole God’s Money.

Don’t allow yourself to steal on the Altar – That is why many People die untimely. That is why those who don’t Pay Tithe are vulnerable to untimely death.

Write it down: They collect Tithes and they don’t Pay!

Don’t touch the Gold; take only what He gives you.

I have learnt in these Years of following the Lord, that if I need a Pair of shoes and I ask Him for a Pair of shoes, I get it. If I need a wrist watch and I asked for it, I get it.

I am still God’s baby. I have not overgrown being Pampered by God.

So, I tell my People, whether you Pay Tithes or or not, God will still sustain me.

Only one woman built an Upstairs for a Prophet (Elisha)!

Any Gold I need belongs to God – I will ask Him.

… Don’t touch the Glory, don’t touch the Gold!

Eli’s sons kept on touching the Gold – Eli’s Family was cursed with a curse, that made them to beg for bread for the rest of their lives.

Many, many Servants of God are Poor, and they will keep on struggling with Poverty because they are touching the Gold – That which is not given to them.

The sons of Eli were fond of taking Offering that was not their Portion – Not given to them by the Lord.


Every other girl is a Poison to you – Only your wife is not!

Samson did not only lose his Anointing, he lost his eyes.

The damage that you will incure through touching the girls may not be a repairable one.

Eli’s sons died tragically!

I was so happy when the Philistines were celebrating the captive of the Ark. But I didn’t know that in seven (7) Months, God would have destroyed more People in the Land of the Philistine by the Presence of the Ark – Without any Human Instrumentality.

To the Point that the Philistines themselves, brought back the Ark with Sacrifices – God recovered His Glory and Honour.

God’s Glory will rest on you today or even as you read – Amen.

I want to Pray now!

I will always be Thankful to God for the day I met Daddy GO.

From the day I meet with Daddy GO – Anybody can anything he likes! You are free, I am also free to say what I believe and what I know.

I am not giving to talking so much about anybody. But I am thankful to God that I met Daddy GO. Only God knows what my life would have become because as a Young Man, I got the Anointing too early.

I go the Anointing as early as 1974 – Power was not a Problem to me.

When the Anointing comes; I could jump, I could run , I could shout. And Human Beings would just be looking at me as if I was not a “Regular Man”.

But when God brought me close to Daddy GO, I saw the Practical way of doing Humility.

I said yes, this is the School God wanted me.to attend here.

So I now know, if I follow this School, no Problem.

… If I had gone the other direction, I would have been destroyed by now.

Do you know how many Ministries and Anointing God has raised in Nigeria, that have been destroyed?

I can give you a list of them! From the 1960s, Girls, Gold and Pride finished them

Those three (3) things will not finish you – Amen! I say, they will not destroy your Calling – Amen.

Now, if what I have been speaking today has affected you Negatively, that means it has benefited you. Then do a Repentance and get help quickly.

Now I want to Pray!

Those of you who want the Anointing, Stand to your feet – because Fire is going to fall.

If you don’t want the Fire, it’s okay.

But if you want the Fire, you have got to believe in the Fire.

If you don’t believe in God, you cannot get it; if you don’t believe in His Prophet, you cannot get it.

Every time I listened to Daddy GO’s Messages, I get my own word. If he likes, let him Preach for two (2) minutes – I will get what God is saying to me. And because I believed God, and I believed that everytime God will send him to me.


If you don’t believe that God has sent me to you, forget about it!

But I know God called me; and Part of my Calling is to raise Men.

Whatever I have deposited in your life today, I did it gladly and I am happy to do it because we are fellow Workers and Servants of the Most High God.

I. You want the Gift of Healing? – Ask for it.

II. You want the Word of Knowledge? – Ask for it.

III. You want the Word of Wisdom? – Ask for it.

But before you ask, Cleanse yourself and Purge yourself because this Anointing is not compatible with Fornication and Adultery; this Anointing is not compatible with Stealing.

In fact, if you get this Anointing and you continue Stealing, it will kill you faster – So Purge yourself!

It doesn’t take ten (10) Minutes to Purge yourself – A sincere heart and a repentant heart and then changing your ways, is an Acceptable Sacrifice to God. Humility is Acceptable to God.

If you have Purged yourself, begin to ask God what you want – The Healing Anointing will come.like Fire; the Spirit of Prophecy will descend upon you; the Power of God will rest on you because you need all those things for the work God is speaking to you about.

He will Anoint your ears to hear; He will Anoint your heart to receive His Voice.

If you want the Anointing, begin to ask God.

Say Father, I am Standing in Your Presence. You are the Ultimate Giver. I believe Your Word, I believe Your Servant. Stretch forth Your Hands Lord, upon my Life.

Go ahead and begin to Pray – You know what you want!


Let the Fire of the Lord manifest;
Let the Fire of the Lord come down;
Let the Fire of the Lord right now manifest;
Let the Fire of the Lord manifest.

My Father, my Father! Let Your Fire fall now, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.

Please, let me request that those who want to catch the Fire of God – Whether for healing, for Miracles, or for Powerful Sermons; or Fire to do any of the Services. Or if you want a Fresh Gift from God; can you just separate yourself and come right out to the Altar! Let me just Pray.

I don’t know where this will reach; but I want to do something today that Heaven will celebrate.

I am not asking everybody to come. I want only those who have given themselves to do the work of God; those are the People I am calling – Don’t kneel down, just Stand up!

I don’t know your heart, but God knows your heart.

I told you from the beginning, Daddy GO told me: “if the head is right, the Oil will flow”.

May your heart be right with God! – If your heart is right, the Oil will flow!

And everytime the Oil flows, it is confirmed.

When the Oil came upon David, he became a killer of Lions.

Daddy, the day you Ordained me and you left: the following day; I wanted to Preach; the Lord Jesus Christ told me He was going to appear to twenty one (21) People as a confirmation of what He had already done.

That day, twenty one (21) People saw Jesus Christ.

What you are receiving today is very Precious! – May you hold it to the End – Amen! May it never be Corrupted – Amen!

I don’t want anybody to die Young oooo.

I told you: this Anointing is not compatible with Fornication and Adultery – So purge yourself oooo.

… Praying in the Spirit!

Spirit of the Lord, Spirit of Prophecy, Healing and Miracles. Fire begets Fire. I release FIRE!

… When I say: “I RELEASE FIRE” you say – I RECEIVE FIRE!

Recieve the Fire (Remember, you have what you should say).

Receive the Fire in the Name of Jesus! – Healing Fire, Preaching Fire, Teaching Fire, Miracles Fire, Prophetic Fire, Revelation Fire.

… Receive Fire in the Name of Jesus – Amen!

Eyes be open, tongues begin to Prophesy, eyes begin to see the Visions in God. Ears begin to hear the Voice of God.


Ta lo dabi, ta lo dabi Olorun wa? (Who is like our God)
Ta lo dabi, ta lo dabi Olorun wa? (Who is like our God)
Ta lo dabi Olorun Agbaye (Who is like the God of the Universe)
To see ‘leri, to mo ‘leri se (That gave a Promise and bring the Promise to Past).

… Pray now in Tongues for the next five (5) Minutes, before I say the Final Prayer.

… Pray in Tongues!

In Jesus’ Name we Pray – Amen.

Now listen to me – Some of you, the Lord will open your eyes now. You will actually see Visions and begin to receive Revelations.

Some of you would be allowed to see what is happening – You will see the release of the Fire. But more importantly, the Manifestation will begin in your Life.

So when I say: RECEIVE THE FIRE. You will shout JESUS!

After that, what will happen, will happen.

So listen to my Prayer, because I will start Praying in the Spirit,and then the Fire will follow!


(Praying in the Spirit).

The God that keeps Covenant, it is not for me, it is for You.

The Heavens are opened. You see the cry of Your son, You see the heart desires of Your son, who has been labouring in Prayer over these Your People.

Let the Blood of Jesus do a Washing.

The Heaven opened – Fire come down!


… Go ahead and Pray in the Spirit; the Fire has fallen. The Fire has fallen!

In Jesus’ Name we Pray – Amen.

From today or even as you readThe Fire will burn in your Life; you will serve God; you will not backslide; you will live Holy.

The God Who has Preserved us will Preserve you! You will not fall into the snare of the wicked ones. The Lord will direct you. His Wisdom will direct you.

It will be well with you.

Every time I hear about you, it shall be Good News!

Glory be to God!

In Jesus’ Name – Amen.

Tell yourself: I got it! I got the Fire. I got the FIRE!!!

Congratulations! God bless you – Amen.
