Let Someone shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah.
Shake hands with one (1) or two (2) People and tell him or her: God will surprise you today – Amen.
Tomorrow is Sunday (7th August, 2022) – Go and Worship in any of our Churches of your choice. There are over Thirty (30) of them here in the Redemption Camp City of God – Investigate and join one tomorrow.
There will be service here in this Auditorium tomorrow.
The Lord will meet with you and answer your Prayers by Fire – Amen.
2. Sunday afternoon is free. Spend Time Praying. And please, be seated latest 7pm because we will have to Appreciate all those who have served meritoriously.
… All these are Subject to if the Lord has not returned. If He returns we have to be ready.
If the Lord returns before tomorrow, how many will be happy to see Him?
Let me hear you shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah.
10 For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Briefly speaking, Jubilee is a Signal that God has Remembered you!
And for the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), God is saying in this your Seventieth (70th) Year, I will remember you – Amen.
The Lord will remember us – Amen.
When God Remembers – Whether Organization or Individuals, dramatic Things happen:
If you read Genesis 8:1-end, the Bible tells us that God Remembered Noah.
Noah had been in the Ark for several days, in obedience to God. And he was living in the Ark with all manner of animals – Shut in, with dogs, goats, and all manner of birds.
And do you know that there was not a Water Closet (toilet) in the Ark?
So for all those days, he was living in a “Stuffy Apartment” full of odour. And he couldn’t go out because there was water everywhere.
Then God Remembered him!
When God remembers you, all your Problems within and dangers without, they will be gone – Amen.
There are Dangers Within (from the Church and Family):
– I mean, ask David: He will tell you of dangers from the Javelin of father in-law.
– Ask Joshua: he will tell you about Problem-causing Achan.
Because God is going to Remember us now, all the enemies within the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) will be consumed by Fire – Amen.
… I am going to say that again – And this time round when I say it, you are going to look to your left and look to your right and if someone is not saying Amen; he or she may be an enemy within (Laughter)!
Because God is Remembering us now, this is our Year of Jubilee – Amen.
All the enemies of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) will be consumed by Fire – Amen.
A Man of God came.to us years ago; his church just refused to grow. The Pastor came to us to join him seek the face of the Lord. Saying that, if the crowd come today, tomorrow they will be gone!
The Spirit of God Ministered to us: that every Plant God has not Planted in that Church would be Uprooted!
And by the time the Pastor got back, a very Influential woman came to him and said, “I am leaving your Church.”
Haaa! Mama, what have we done wrong? She said, “don’t beg me!”
When the enemy in your Church is leaving, nobody would be able to beg her or him – Amen.
Then, for you to enjoy the Year of Jubilee, the Enemies Without have to be dealt with also.
I don’t need to tell you this – You already know the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) is a Covenant Church. OPENHEAVEN.NET
There are those who hate us and can’t understand why the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) is enjoying the Favour of God.
They don’t know that we are enjoying under Covenant:
That what is happening is not the effort of a man; it is only God!
However, because this is our Year of Jubilee, any force that will not allow us to expand, the Fire of God will consume – Amen.
Somebody was in an Airport in Abuja, somehow another Passenger recognized him and greeted him. Then he said, you are one of those People “everywhere we go, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) – Get away from here!”
Let me hear Somebody shout Fire – FIRE!!!
The Year of Jubilee is a Year of New Beginning.
When God remembered Abraham, all the Promises of Twenty five (25) Years was fulfilled in a Single day – Genesis 18:1-14.
Because God is going to remember us now – All the Promises He has made to our father-in-the-Lord (Pa Josiah Akindayomi) shall soon be fulfilled – Amen.
You know the story: when God told our father-in-the-Lord (Pa Josiah Akindayomi) that he would start a Church through him; and that the Church would spread throughout the whole World. That must have sounded to some People, very Strange!
To the Glory of God, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) is gradually getting to all Nations of the world; including Ukraine.
Whether you believe it or not, the War in Ukraine is going to end – Amen.
And you know why the War has to end? Because the last time I visited Russia, we were already discussing having our Camp Ground there!
… Do you believe it’s going to come to Pass? – Yes!!!!
Every Promises that God has made concerning you, as a Member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) shall come to Pass – Amen.
Not only will they come to Pass, they will begin to come to Pass now – Amen.
Then you have to consider the case of Rachael:
There are two (2) ways one could be in Bondage; because Barrenness is Bondage.
1. One could be in Bondage by he his or her own Actions:
Like in 2 Samuel 6:20-23; Michal (the wife of David) saw David Praising God. She wasn’t the one Praising Him – That’s bad enough!
But she criticised someone who was Praising God; denying God of His Praises.
God said, okay Michal, you would be in Bondage forever. You are going to die barren.
… She is the only one who was barren in the Bible. And she died barren. The only one!
2. But in the case of Rachel, she was in Bondage not as a result of her fault.
She was beautiful – Was that her fault? No!
Is it her fault that she was loved by her husband? No!
In Genesis 29:18-31, this woman (Rachel) was so beautiful, the husband said, “I will serve my father in-law for seven (7) years without a salary so that I can marry her.”
Papa Laban said, agreed!
When the time came to marry Rachel, Papa, who was the Number one (1) 419 brought in the elder sister (Leah) who was not beautiful.
I just remembered when we were Younger and we were still stupid boys (Laugher)! And we would compare our many girlfriends; gathered their Photographs and do Beauty Contest with our mouth.
We looked at their Pictures and then we begin to compare them – “Oh, this one was created on Saturday Night, when God was eager to rest: He just added some things here and there so that He could rest (Laughter)!
… I think you should Thank God for Salvation!
If you are looking for a Miracle, look at me! I was rotten, but Jesus saved me – Hallelujah!
And then we looked at the one that is very beautiful and said: Haaa! This one was created early on Monday morning – When God was still free (Laugher)!
… But that was a stupid way of deciding beauty!
So, Rachel was created on Monday morning (Laugher)!
Let me hear you shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah.
So, Leah must have been created on Saturday Night (Laughter)!
But whether you believed it or not, our God is a God of Joy.
Beginning from now on, in the Name that is above every other names, you will be Laughing – Amen!!!
So, the father (Papa Laban) switched Leah instead of Rachel. And when the husband (Jacob) discovered the following morning, he said to his father in-law, “what have you done?
The father in-law said if you want to still marry Rachel, you will have to serve another seven (7) years.
This man (Jacob) agreed!
So, when finally he married Rachel, he hated Leah.
When God saw that the husband loved Rachael and hated Leah; He shut the womb of Rachel and opened the womb of Leah.
It was not the fault of Rachel that she was beautiful; or that she was loved by he husband.
The beautiful thing is, in the time of Jubilee whether you got into the Problem as a result of your own Action or because of the Actions of Others; you get Freedom – Amen.
So, when God remembered Rachel, He opened her Womb. OPENHEAVEN.NET
What about Joseph?
I. It was not the fault of Joseph that God gave him dreams.
II. It was not the fault to Joseph that his brother hated him and also sold him as a Slave.
III. It was not the fault of Joseph that Portiphar’s wife tempted him and he refused to compromise his own Faith. He landed in prison.
IV. It was not his fault of Joseph that even after interpreting the Dream of the Cupbearer; the Cupbearer forgot him for two (2) solid years.
But when God remembered Joseph, in less than twenty four (24) hours, he became a Prime Minister.
I have Good News for Someone today – Because this is your Year of Jubilee, God will remember you – Amen.
And then when you consider Israel.
It was not the fault of Israel that they were in bondage in Egypt.
God said to Abraham in Genesis 15:8-21 – Know of a surety that thy Seed shall be a Stranger in a Land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; … But in the fourth Generation, they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
One way or the other, Israel got to Egypt. Joseph died; another King came, who did not know Joseph. But Israel was just Producing children like rabbit.
Exodus 1::8-8; Now there arose up a new King over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his People, Behold, the People of the children of Israel are more and Mightier than we:
Our God is a Covenant keeping God – Whatever He says, He will do!
And one day, in Exodus 2:13-21, God remembered His Covenant with Abraham,.
And the moment God remembered, it was only a matter of days before Israel began to move back to Freedom.
The Almighty God made certain Promises concerning the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) – He told my father-in-the-Lord, “if you will do the following, I will do the following”.
By the Grace of God, my father-in-the-Lord kept his own side of the bargain.
He is dead now, so he can’t break his own side of the bargain anymore.
And so, there is nothing else left for us to do than to watch God fulfil His own side of the bargain.
And like I told you before, when we went to Israel in 1985 for Holy Pilgrimage then, and the Ambassador invited us for dinner. And I told him “Sir, we want to establish the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) here” – he laughed!
He said haven’t you People noticed that the greatest Church in the world is in America? And they are following America. You want to start a Roman Catholic Church here? You are welcome, you want to start Anglican, Methodist, Baptist here? You are welcome! OPENHEAVEN.NET
… Pentecostal? – No way!
He said, “They say – No Pentecostal for America.” Now you want to bring a Pentecostal Church here, from Nigeria of all Places?
I said, but my own would be different.
But when I insisted, he said alright, what do you want me to do for you? I said, “help me submit my Application for Registration. He said, is that all? I said, that’s all Sir.
There’s no Problem!
He collected the Application from me – “It’s one thing to submit the Application, it’s another thing for the Application to be approved.”
He collected the Application from me, he submitted it. Six (6) Months later, we were registered!
Why? -It wasn’t because of me! They didn’t invite me for Interview, they didn’t ask questions. It was because we are under a Covenant!
That’s why when I hear that one fellow says he is resigning from the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) and that God has told him to start his own Ministry. I say, God have Mercy!
You want to leave? – “Nobody knows the Value of an Umbrella until it begins to rain”.
“You don’t know the Value of a Cover until it begins to rain”.
I am not saying all these to discourage you from leaving. If you want to leave come and I will Pray for you – God have Mercy!
I was in America, we came for a Ministers’ Conference like this. And I heard God said, “it is lonely outside there! It is dangerous outside there!”
… I just found myself saying it again and again.
I talked about what happens when a branch is torn away from its tree. For a while the leaves will remain green (increase). And then soon its leaves will turn yellow. Yellow is the colour of Gold.
You break away – Oh surely, the crowd will be coming. Prosperity will follow. But the Yellow leaves would soon come back (when it dries up)!
… I am not saying that to discourage anyone who wants to go.
I said that one in just a Meeting like this. After I finished the Ministers’ Conference this fellow came with a Letter of Resignation. I called him, I begged him!
He had a big Church. By the time he died, the People in the Church were, himself, his wife and his children. Out of compassion, we bore the Burial Expenses.

Don’t joke with Covenant! – Our God is a Covenant Keeping God.
He had made a Covenant with our father-in-the-Lord – He told him: Keep your own Part of the Covenant, I will keep Mine. “The Church I Am starting through you will go all round the world.”
Some People talk and they say, “Pastor Adeboye must be a Great Man of God!” But there are Places God has Planted His Church that I have never been to.
I have never been to Japan. I wanted to go in 2020, Coro said,.no way!
I have never been to Libya. I have never been to Iran. The first time I got to Papa New Guinea, eeeh! That Place is far. Even when you are flying in with your own Jet, you first get get to Australia. The Journey from Australia to Papa New Guinea is six and half (6½) hours by Air.
And when I got there and I saw the Church (of God) thriving, I know that “this is not the work of any man – This is God!” RCCG 2022 MINISTERS’ CONFERENCE (DAY 3 EVENING SESSION)
He remembered Israel and Israel had its Jubilee.
When I was watching the News and I discovered that some enemies were sending emissaries to Israel, and Israel has what is called “Iron Bow”. When a Rocket is coming, the Iron Bow will shoot down the Rocket! Small Country, but only a Covenant is speaking for them.
Don’t mess with anybody who is under a Covenant because God will fight you!
… And you don’t want God to fight you.
The first time we were in Israel, the Tall Guy who was leading us, he was telling us all kinds of funny Stories. He said, why are you always been beaten up by Nations that we have defeated in War?
But if God is for us, who can be against us?
How many of you are Grateful to God that you are in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG)? – THE OPENHEAVEN.NET FAMILY MEMBERS!
Then consider the case in John 9:1-7 – It is the Story of the man who was Born Blind.
And His Disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his Parents, that he was born blind?
Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his Parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
I. This man was sent in to the world to show the world how man was created.
II. He was created as an object for demonstrating the Glory of God.
And he was in darkness for forty (40) years. Then one day God remembered him, and said: Darkness, no more!
You know God has a Purpose why He sent you to this world and that Purpose shall be fulfilled – Amen.
And so I can say with confidence, that if only God will remember you tonight; every Problem in your Life is going to end – Amen.
… So that God will be? Glorified!
Are you considered barren? When all of a sudden you bring forth Children, God will be Glorified – Amen.
Has the Doctors said that you are Incurable? When the Almighty God heals you, the Doctors will say, “definitely, this must be the Almighty – Amen.
So shall it be, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
I can keep going on and on; but because we have to Pray l want to begin to round up.
And I am sure you already know the Prayer Point would be – God Remember me!
And He will, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
So What do you want Him to Remember you for?
That is a Big Question!
You see, because when He remembers Somebody, it is in two (2) ways:
1. If you read Acts 10:1-end, He Remembered Cornelius for his Offerings.
His Good Deeds brought him Salvation.
The Bible says in Psalms 20:1-3 that when God remembers your offerings, He will send help to you from the Sanctuary.
The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the Name of the God of Jacob defend thee; Send thee help from the Sanctuary, and Strengthen thee out of Zion; Remember all thy Offerings, and accept thy burnt Sacrifice; Selah.
Of course the Question is: What is Offering?
It is something that must be given Cheerfully and not grudginly.
You know I have told you before, if you cannot give to God with Joy and excitement, don’t give! Because if you give grudgingly, you have just wasted your money. – God is not going to receive it.
Instead of giving God what He will not receive, eat with it. Because the Bible says, God loves a Cheerful Giver.
So when they say it’s Offering Time, you should rejoice, you should dance:
Because sooner or later, He will remember your Offering – Amen.
2.. And then, there is another case – if you read Exodus 17:8-14.
The children of Israel had just crossed the Red Sea, and they didn’t know how to fight because they were Builders. And the Amelekites attacked them. Moses climbed up, “Help us!” God heard him.
And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a Memorial in a Book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under Heaven.
1 Samuel 15 (you know the Story)! God sent Prophet Samuel: Tell King Saul, I remembered what the Amalekites did to my People. Go and fight them.
When we talk about remembering, there’s remembrance for Good; there’s remembrance for Evil.
You are going to be Praying now, what do you want God to remember you for?
In our early days we loved God so much, we knew the meaning of: Total Surrender, Self Sacrifice, Giving Sacrificially, Spending and be Spent. We spent of our Resources, Energy and Time.
When we were building the first Auditorium by the Expressway; as soon as Workers closed from their offices in Lagos, they came to help work on the site all night. And by 3am I will have to be begging them to go and sleep because they will be resuming at their work place in the morning.
As they were working, I was also working – Even when I have asked them to go and sleep, I would still be working on the floor and carrying bags of cement.
I still remembered the First Baby born on this Camp Ground. I was busy at work by 1am (midnight) I saw a woman lying on a bench in pains. When I asked what happened, I found out she was expecting her baby (she was in labour). I sent for my wife (Mummy GO), they took her to one corner, she delivered a Baby Boy.
… Thank God that Boy is a Pastor today – He had no choice anyway!
I am talking about Self Sacrifice – If God is to Remember you today, what will He Remember you for?
These days, the Choir wants to be Paid for Singing to God.
I was at a Program somewhere outside Nigeria, they said the Ushers want an increase in their Stipend. They Paid them for counting the money. .
Usher? – And they even want an increase?
Now the Organist, Choir members and some others want to be Paid for working for God.
In those days, we were spending and were also spent. Not that I blame them because somewhere along the line, Prosperity Gospel flooded the world. OPENHEAVEN.NET
… Don’t get me wrongg, there is nothing wrong with Prosperity.
In the Name that is above every other names, you are going to Prosper – Amen.
Proverbs 10:22 – The Blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
That they are demanding money before working is not even the Problem; it is that Pastors are now Stealing from the Church.
One of my daughters told me she discovered that her Fiance has been Stealing from the Offering Basket. And when she confronted him he said he is a son of Levite (Laughter).
We were willing to spend and be spent – That is why it was Popular then to go Full Time.
I was a Lecturer at the University of Ilorin. My Boys Quarters had 4 bedroom. And I had to relocate to Mushin.
When many People heard, they said “you mean he left his Career for Full-Time Ministry?”
People like Pastor Odeyemi also came into Full-time. I am talking of The Principal of a School.
When we opened a Parish in England, we needed Someone to resume there – Daramola, a Vetinary Doctor said he would go.
When you are saying, Oh God, remember me. What will God remember you for?
Because when God remembers you, things will happen according to your Sacrifice.
When I was coming into Full-time, the entire income of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) was not up to half of my Salary as a Lecturer. And by the time we Paid the thirty nine (39) Workers we had then, there was nothing left.
I said Lord, I have a wife and children to take care of.
He made me a Promise – “I will be with you.”
So, if you see what God is doing for me now and you feel jealous, God have Mercy on you!
… And I am not taking about money now.
We went to America for a Program, there was heavy traffic due to smoke from accident scene. And we were already running late for the Program.. We tried to see if we could Charter a Private Jet, the amount was beyond us
And then some Passengers when they saw Leke, they said, “that must be Pastor Adeboy’a son. “Is Daddy here?” Yes! OPENHEAVEN.NET
They told their Oga (Leader) about us.
As soon as that one heard, we were given all the needed assistance: “Take them to wherever they are going.”
God is my Leader! He has already arranged for Someone to pick me up. He Said, “I will be with you.”
If God should remember you, what will He remember you for?
Because He said in His Word – Behold I come quickly and my Reward is with me to give to every man according to his work.
Please think deeply, because so many things will become New when God remembers you.
We see Pastors who want to be Paid before they can Pray for you. I mean, you hear them say, sow a Seed before I Pray for your child.
Where is the Spirit of: And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved? – 2 Corinthians 12:15
Where is the Spirit of: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the Faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me? – Galatians 2:20
Where is the Spirit of: For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain? – Philippians 1:21
When you say God remember me, how do you want Him to remember you? – For Good or for Evil?
But examine your Life – Ask Him to bring back to you that Spirit of Self Sacrifice, Sanctification and Total Consecration.
And then call on Him to remember you during this Year of Jubilee Celebration.
…. Pray for the Next Thirty (30) Minutes and then Remember to drop your Offering.
