He asked me to tell you – Your hands will be Fully restored tonight – Amen.
7. Daddy says that I should remind you of what happened in Acts of Apostle Chapter 3, Verses 1 to 11 (Acts 3: 1-11).
It is the Story of the Lame Man by the “Beautiful Gate” – All his Life, he had been held down by a Force that he could do Nothing about.
But then, his Day came and a Touch from the Hand of the Servant of the Living God destroyed the Yokes that was binding him down. And he got up – Jumping, Leaping and Praising God.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT DURING THE RCCG APRIL 2023 HOLY GHOST SERVICE
1. By the Grace of God, Next Month (May 2023); we will be dealing with: “WONDERFUL – PART 5” and I will be talking about “THE EVERLASTING ARMS OF GOD”.
2. I want to bring you Greetings from your Brothers and Sisters in Malawi.
We were with them some days ago and the Almighty God moved Mightily and the Brethrens there received us very, very well.
DMC NOTES: Pastor E.A Adeboye was in the African Country called Malawi for a 3-Days Divine Encounter Services (Anointing Service and Ministers Conference) from the 28th to 30th of March 2023. Watch Out for Details Only on the Label of DMC!
3. I can tell you with all Certainty that during the Earthquake in Turkey; none of our Members died – Not a Single one and this is a Mighty Miracle because some of our Churches were in the very Section where the Earthquake took Place.
And of course, we have reached out to them as we should as a Church.
But I feel that may be I should let you know that there is still a lot of Needs there. Some of our Churches were among those that Collapsed
And so, we need to rebuild and so on and so forth.
So, if you feel led of God to Contribute towards the work of Reconstruction Particularly of our Churches in Turkey; Please do so – Just Contact my Secretary (Daddy GO Secretary) or your Pastors in your Regions (PICR) and we will be able to do something.
4. Then I’m sure that the Workers (Workers in RCCG) remember that once a Year, we have a “Special Meeting” in the Month of May.
And so, we will be expecting that all Workers in RCCG will be Present at the RCCG May 2023 Holy Ghost Service.
Mark 10: 13-16
13. And they brought Young children to him, that he should touch them: and His Disciples rebuked those that brought them.
14. But when Jesus saw it, He was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the Kingdom of God.
15. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
16. And he took them up in His arms, put His Hands upon them, and blessed them.
“… And He took them up in His Arms.”
How many of you are small enough for God to carry you? – The DMC FAMILY MEMBERS!
Then lift your hands and shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!
You know the Problem with many of us is that we are too big for God to carry.
We have become “Too Big” – “Too Big” to dance for Him; “Too Big” to shout for Him; “Too Big” to clap for Him.
May the Almighty God bless all of us tonight – Amen.
The Value of a Touch – Like I shared with those of you who came to the Holy Communion Service yesterday, depends on who is doing the touching. (You can read the Full Text of the Message on the Label of DMC)
ALL HANDS ARE NOT THE SAME:
Not at all!
In Exodus 17:8-14, when the Amalekites came to attack the Children of Israel, Moses went to the Hilltop – Aaron and Hur went with him. And he told Joshua to be fighting in the Valley below – You know the Story!
As long as Moses’ hands were up, the children of Israel were winning. But when he became tired and his hands were coming down, the battle turned!
Aaron and Hur saw what was happening – They too had hands – Even the two (2) of them were Ministers.
But they knew that the hands of Moses are not “Ordinary Hands”. So, they got him a comfortable seat and lifted his hands – One was carrying one hand on this side, the other was carrying another hand on the other side.
Why didn’t they say, “okay Moses rest; your hands are two (2) our own hands combined would be four (4); we will raise our hands? They would have lost the battle!
Today I lift my hand to the Almighty God on your behalf and I say: You will win all your battles – Amen.
According to Deuteronomy 34:9 – SOME HANDS CAN TRANSMIT POWER.
Joshua the son of Nun was full of the Spirit of Wisdom. Why? Because Moses had laid his hands upon him:
It wasn’t an “Ordinary Hand” that landed on the head of Joshua; it was the Miracle Working Hands of Moses.
I say with all Humility – You are Blessed – Amen.
… Because it has Pleased the Almighty God to make the hands of your father-in-the-Lord Special Hands. Hallelujah!
I am not boasting; it’s not by my Ability or Education or anything – It is just by His Grace.
But by the Special Grace of God, these hands are Special Hands. And God will Prove it to you tonight – Amen.
Don’t worry, if the Introduction is long, it means the Sermon would be short. Because we don’t want to Preach long tonight. God is already here.
Some of you would remembered the Story – I went to Malaysia and Members of our Churches over there, many of them were at the Airport to receive me. They were many!
And so, the only thing I could do was to enter into the car and as they were driving me, they were winding down the window. I raised my hand and was waving to them.
But one man was a bit cleverer than the others. Somehow he launched forward and his hand brushed my hand. He was excited! He had a child that was born Lame that had been Lame for about five (5) years.
When he got home, he said: I touched his hand! He laid his hand on the boy saying, I command you walk! And nothing happened. He said, sorry ooo, it looks as if my Faith is not enough.
So very sadly, he turned to walk out of the room; and suddenly he heard a sound behind him – The child was following! Hallelujah.
Everything that is Lame in your Life will walk today – Amen.
Because of who God is, His Touch can have Various Effects. For example:
1. The Bread that Jesus Touched was Multiplied:
You know the Story in John 6:5-13; He took hold of (5) loaves of bread and two (2) fish, gave Thanks, broke them, and fed give thousand (5,000). And there were still twelve (12) baskets leftovers.
… He Touched the Bread!
– Because the One Who did the touching is the One called the All-Sufficient One;
– The One Who did the touching is the One Who said, “I Am the Bread of Life.”
God is going to touch Somebody tonight – Amen.
2. Because God is Love, when He touches, it is a Touch of Love:
Maybe I’ll explain that one very quickly – A Child will be crying; you pick up the Child, you begin to dance with the Child, yet the Child keeps crying.
But the mother comes, takes the Child and the Child stops crying immediately.
Why? Even a Child can feel the Touch of Love – The touch of Love of a mother is different from any Stranger.
When God touches you with His Hand of Love, your entire System becomes cooled down; Comfort comes; what is causing you to cry seems to vanish away.
Today, God will touch Somebody with the Hand of Love – Amen.
3. So when He touches, it could be a Touch of Fire:
In Judges 15:14-15, when they brought Samson bound, to the Philistines, and the enemies were already rejoicing, “we’ve got him.” The Bible says, God touched him – You know the Story.
And the ropes that were binding him were burnt as if they were in contact with fire.
You know God said you should write today’s date (7th April, 2023) down because every Yokes in your Life will be destroyed tonight – Amen.
And because the Yokes were destroyed in the Life of Samson, the External enemies that surrounded him; thinking, we got him now, they were destroyed. Those who didn’t die, fled!
In the Name of the One Who is called the Consuming Fire, all those who have Plotted your Destruction, Fire will consume them – Amen.
That reminds me the Story of one of my sons – He was never able to share his Testimony Publicly because he was in the Military at that time (He is Retired now).
Some Senior Officers Plotted against him because he wasn’t Playing ball (I can’t go to details).
So they decided that they will arrange for his early Retirement. And he came to the Holy Ghost Service – We were in the first Auditorium (it’s a long time ago now).
And God said, “all who have gathered together against you shall be Scattered because of you” – Amen.
The Word came on Friday; and one thing led to another and all the Officers who attended that Meeting were dismissed. And my son who was going to be destroyed, rose to fill the Highest Post.
I am believing God that He will do it again – Amen.
When God touches you with His Hand of Fire, External enemies will be destroyed and Internal enemies will be disappointed.
It was the Relatives of Samson that bound him and handed him over to the Philistines – It was the enemy within that handed him over to the enemies without.
You know Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:36, that a man’s foes shall be they of his own household
And occasionally, you don’t even know how to Pray concerning some of these People who are very, very close to you – Some of the People you are feeding, you are Clothing, you are helping; and yet they are Plotting your downfall.
And you don’t even know how to Pray: because if you ask God to kill them, you are the one who will bear the expenses of burying them.
… But God has a thousand ways where you don’t have one.
And so I am going to Pray: And the Prayer would be this: Father, concerning all Your Children who are here today and all those who are listening and those reading now on the Label of DMC: Prepare a table before them in the Presence of their enemies – Amen.
Thank You Father.
Daddy says concerning Someone, “I have heard your ‘Silent Cry’.
By April Next Year (2024); your Child would be among the ones here – Amen!
4. God is Life, so when He touches, His Touch can Produce Life:
In Luke 7:11-15, you remembered the Story in the City of Nain.
That a Widow was going to bury her only son, but Jesus came and Touched the coffin and everything Changed
The dead came back to Life, Sorrow Changed to Joy, the Journey to the Grave became a Journey back home; a Journey of Despair became a Journey of Rejoicing.
I don’t know who God is talking to, but by Next Month (May 2023); you will come back Rejoicing – Amen.
5. God is Light, so He can Touch you with Light:
His Touch can Produce Light.
In John 9:1-7, there was a man who was born blind. Jesus touched him and the one who had been in Darkness all the days of his Life suddenly came into Light.
I know there are many of us who up till this moment are groping in the dark – You might not be blind Physically, but you are still waiting for that thing you need to know, that would transform your Life Completely.
It takes only one Breakthrough to Change a Man’s Life forever.
There are several People who were supposed to be Tailors but they are opening Barbing Salon – They say, “Scissors is Scissors!”
I know at least one of my sons – He is a Medical Doctor but the Almighty God opened his eyes one day that, “No, No, No! I did not send you into the world to be a Medical Doctor: I sent you into the world to be an Accountant.”
Today, he can Pay the Salary of a hundred (100) Doctors.
There is a door waiting for you to enter into – if only you can see it.
Today, in the Name that’s above every other name, He will touch you: your eyes will open and you will discover His Purpose for your Life – Amen.
6. God is the All-Sufficient One:
According to Genesis 17:1, He is the God Who is More than Enough.
That means a touch from Him can take care of all your Needs.
Like the Story my daughter used in her Sermon tonight – Just a Touch!
And she gave a marvellous Definition of what a Touch is:
“A Touch is an extension from one Fellow to the other.”
And I said, yes Ma, Thank you.
I. That lady was sick and a Touch healed her;
II. She was barren – She couldn’t be Pregnant because of what was happening.
But a touch solved that Problem.
III. She was like somebody who is under a Curse.
Because in those days, when a woman is doing her Monthly Period, she’s not even allowed to come into the Church.
A touch solved the Problem.
IV. She was growing Poorer by the day.
A touch solved that Problem.
V. She was almost completely Hopeless – All the Doctors had failed her.
A touch solved that Problem – Just one touch!
… I don’t know what your Problems are:
If it Physical, God will touch you today – Amen!
When I was Praying for the Prayer Warriors who normally Pray Overnight on Thursday.
When I was Praying for them by by 3am;
… Some of you don’t know I go to Pray for them when they want to round up. Well, I do so.
My Request for them (I want to extend it to you). I said Father, touch them Physically and make them Whole – Amen.
Touch them Materially and Prosper them – Amen.
Touch them Spiritually and make them Free – Amen.
Touch them Spiritually and empower them to do Miracles – Amen.
… All you need is a Single Touch; and you will get it tonight!
Let me put it this way: God will Touch somebody tonight – Amen!
And that somebody would be the one whose Amen is the loudest – Amen!
And then let me Conclude the way my daughter concluded:
She referred to things that could hinder your Touch:
You’ve made up your Mind that “it is too late and God can’t do anything about my case.”
No! You have to get out of that one.
I said, Yes Ma! Thank you.
II. Then she said you have to seek after God; you have to get up and go.
III. But then she mentioned something at the very end, and she said: one of the biggest Obstacles to your receiving a Touch from God is Sin.
And she quoted a Bible Passage – it’s there in my Notes.
When she was quoting it I said, is that so? You mean this Girl saw my Notes? The Holy Spirit must have shown it to her.
Isaiah 59:1-2 – Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
That’s why next Month (May 2023) we will be talking more about “The Everlasting Arms”.
I have given you the illustration before – If you have a Piece of wire or two (2) Pieces of wire – One on the Left and the other on the Right; one is carrying high Voltage Electricity, the other is carrying Nothing.
If you look at the two (2) with Ordinary eyes, you can’t see the difference. They just look alike.
It is when you touch both of them that you will know.
As a matter of fact, if you touch the one that is carrying Electricity, you will not be alive to tell the Story.
But no matter how Powerful the Current that is flowing in a Piece of wire, if we wrap rubber round it (we call the rubber Insulator).If there is an insulator round that wire, no matter how Powerful the Current in there, a child can play with it.
Why? Because the rubber will not allow the Electric Power to Penetrate through.
… Sin is an Insulator!
Even if God wants to touch you and the Insulator is there, Nothing will happen.
That’s why you have to get rid of sin.
That’s why I keep crying everyday, “Be Holy.”
That is why I said long time ago that the Master key to Success is Holiness.
That is why you must give your Life to Jesus Christ and let His Blood wash away your sin.
Because until your sins are washed away, the Mighty Power in the Hands of the Almighty cannot Penetrate through to you.
So very quickly, if you want to surrender your Life to Jesus Christ; if you want that Blood to wash you Clean, come to the Lord now!
We will Pray for the Salvation of your Soul, and then the Hand of the Almighty God would reach out to you, touch you and all your Problems would be dealt with by His Mighty Hands.
The Insulator must be removed before the Power of God can flow through to you.
And that Insulator is sin.
The Solution is the Blood of Jesus Christ, that can Cleanse from all sin.
Hurriedly come to Him now.
Thank you those of you who are clapping. God is going to touch your hands today and they will begin to transmit Power – Amen.
Cry to God now. Ask Him to have Mercy on you:
“Every Obstructions to Your Touch in my Life, let Your Blood wash away today. I want to become a Child of God. Let your Blood wash me Clean Lord. And I will serve You for the rest of my Life. Be my Lord, be my Saviour. Take over my Life completely, and I will do Your Will for as long as I live.”
Talk to God!
And the rest of us Please, let’s Stretch our hands to our New Brothers and Sisters and Pray for them; That the Almighty God will have Mercy on them. That He will save their Souls and forgive all their sins.
Pray for them Brethren!
Thank You Jesus. In Jesus’ Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
PRAYER FOR SALVATION
Saviour, I just want to say Thank You!
Thank You for Your Word, Thank You for these People who have decided to surrender their lives to You.
Please, remember Your Promise, that whosoever would come unto You, You will in no wise cast out.
They have come to You now, Father Please, receive them. Save their Souls. Let Your Blood wash them Clean.
Please, write their names in the Book of Life. Let them become True Children of the Living God.
And Please Lord, whenever they cry unto You, answer them by Fire!
And when You are touching People tonight, Please touch them also.
In Jesus’ Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
Praise the Lord – Hallelujah.
Now I want to rejoice with those of you who have just surrendered your Life to Jesus Christ Genuinely. I want to Promise you that from now on, by the Grace of God, I’ll be Praying for you.
So I need your names, your Address and your Prayer Requests.
God bless you!
In the meantime, the Choir will be worshipping God.
Thank You Father!
Anointing will come forth before you go to Pray:
When I was Teaching on Divine Encounter last Monday (3rd April 2023) I told the People that the reason the Almighty God blessed Isaac more than Abraham, was because Abraham had taught Isaac and Isaac learnt very well.
That’s why, when they were going to the Mountain for the Offering that God had asked; Isaac said to the father, “I can see the wood, I can see the knife, I can see the fire – Where is the Lamb for the Offering?”
The child has been taught not to appear before God empty-handed.
Teach your children from now on not to come before God empty-handed.
So, as you are bringing the children forward tonight, put an Offering in their hands;
I. It is not the amount that matters; but that they don’t come before God empty-handed.
II. We are all infants in the hand of God.
The Bible calls Him the One Who has been from Everlasting to Everlasting. He is the Ancient of Days; the One Who has been before the Mountains were brought forth. Compared to Him, the oldest among us is a few days old.
So, we are going to be anointed because we are all His Children.
The children will be anointed, and you will be anointed too.
And then when you get back to your seats, you can now begin to cry to the Almighty God and tell Him everything you want Him to touch in your Life – Your Body, your Soul, your Spirit, your Business, your Marriage, your Career, your Brain, your eyes, your feet.
You just talk to the Almighty!
As soon as they anoint you, you can go under that Anointing and begin to Pray to the Almighty God – And He will answer your Prayers, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
Now the Oil has been Sanctified. The Power of the Almighty God had gone into it.
The Choir will be Ministering to God and the Anointing will begin.
God Bless You!
Thank You Father.SPECIAL PRAYER POINTS:
Let us Stand on our feet as this is an Awesome Moment:
1. Cry to the Almighty God and say – From now on, I will feel Your Presence.
Because of Your Touch on me today, that everywhere I go, I will feel Your Presence and Your Hands will be upon me Constantly.
And the Hand of the Lord was upon Elijah and he outran the Chariots of the King.
Thank You Jesus; Thank You Father. In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!
2. Now, you cry to the Almighty God now that the Oil is still fresh on your head.

Help me Daddy and let me be far, far ahead of my Enemies.
Thank You Father, Thank You Lord. In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
3. Let us Thank God in anticipation for what God is going to do – Praise Him, Thank Him and Worship Him.
