BIBLE TEXT: COLOSSIANS 2: 9-10

Hallelujah!

There is someone who will be blessed tonight. Who is that Individual? – The DMC FAMILY MEMBERS!

… If you are the one, rise up on your feet and shout a Glorious Hallelujah – Hallelujah!!!

We are talking about COMPLETE IN JESUS.

If you know that you are Complete in Jesus, and something New is about to happen in your Life, let your Hallelujah rise higher right now – Hallelujah!!!

Shall we wave our hands to the Almighty God and Bless His Name? Let’s Exalt Him!

Let’s just Thank Him and Appreciate God of the whole Universe; the One Who has made us to be Complete in Jesus.

I want you to Thank Him, Appreciate Him, Glorify His Name. Let the Lord hear your Voice at this time.

Let Him know how appreciative you are – That you are here tonight, that He has Preserved you, that He has kept you alive to witness the School of Disciple (SOD) Convention of this year (2022), and the Holy Ghost Service of July, 2022.

Just go ahead and Bless Him. Glorify His Name.

Thank You Heavenly Father! Blessed be Your Name. In Jesus’ Mighty Name we Pray!

Let somebody say a better Amen to that – AMEN!!!!

I like you to open your Bible to Psalms 18; we will be Praying some Prayers before we go into the Word of God.

… I have not asked you to sit down Please. And I could see that many of us are already seated.

This is the time for you to fire up yourself. And Prepare yourself for this very Glorious Night. This is not an Ordinary Night.

I like you to help me tell your neighbour – THIS IS NOT AN ORDINARY NIGHT!

Psalms 18:32, 34 and 35:

32 It is God that girdeth me with Strength, and maketh my Way Perfect.

34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

35 Thou hast also given me the Shield of thy Salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

“… It is God that girdeth me with Strength.”

Someone is going to leave this Campground girdeth with Supernatural Strength tonight – Amen.

I want you to turn this Particular Phrase to Prayer:

1. You will say after us: Heavenly Father, accordimg to Your Word, You are the One Who girds me with Strength.

Tonight, I ask that You will release Your Supernatural Strength upon my Life.

Go ahead and call upon the Lord; Pray that Prayer for yourself.

Thank You Heavenly Father! In Jesus’ Mighty Name we Pray – Amen.

The Bible says, “He teacheth my hands to war;” – this must be your Testimony as well.

2. Lift your Voice and say Heavenly Father, let the Power of God be released through my hand after this Holy Ghost Service.

That you will not leave this Auditorium or wherever you are right now even as you read on the Label of DMC – You have not come to be a Spectator.

Yes Lord! You will teach my hands to war!

Cry to the Living God; let the Lord hear your Voice.

Thank You Heavenly Father! Blessed be Your Name. In Jesus’ Mighty Name we Pray – Amen.

Verse 35 says, “Thou hast also given me the Shield of thy Salvation:”

I believe somebody is about to Breakthrough to his or her Greatness – Amen!

… I can’t hear that Amen well – AMEN!!!

3. You are going to cry to God and say: Heavenly Father, let Your Gentleness make me Great.

Bring me to the kind of Greatness I have never experienced before. Cry out to Him!

Thank You my Father! Blessed be Your Name! In Jesus’ Mighty Name we Pray – Amen.

OPENING PRAYER:

Glorous Father we Thank You tonight. We honour Your Mighty Name. We give You Glory for all You have done in the Past.

We Thank You for all the School of Disciple (SOD) Conventions that we have had before.

We Thank You for the Past Holy Ghost Services; Thank You for the Month of July, 2022.

We Thank You for Preserving our lives. We Thank You Lord because of all that is going on around us. We are here on our feet – to the Glory of Your Name.

Thank You Father! Blessed be Your Name Oh Lord!

Accept our Thanks and Praises, in the Name of Jesus.

We Thank You because of what You are about to do tonight because this is not an Ordinary Night.

We know Oh Lord of Heaven that we will not leave here the way we have come tonight. We know Oh Lord, You will do a New Thing in our lives.

Father, we know, as You spoke to Your son, our father-in-the-Lord several decades ago concerning the School of Disciple (SOD); and You gave him Specific directions, and he obeyed You and we are seeing the results today.

Everyone of us here tonight: the Power of the Living God will give us results, in the Name of Jesus!

Thank You Heavenly Father! Blessed be Your Name. In Jesus’ Mighty Name we Pray – Amen!

… And somebody will say? AMEN!!!!

And the Victorious ones will say? – AMEN!!!!

I like you to tell your Neighbour – TONIGHT IS MY NIGHT.

HALLELUJAH!

We will like to thank our Daddy and Mummy GO for this Unique Privilege to bring the First Message of this Unique Convention (SOD Convention 2022).

May the Living God continue to use you more and more; and Strengthen you in the inner mind, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.

We also want to Thank the Living God on their behalf, for the School of Disciple (SOD).

Several of us who have been Part of the School of Disciple (SOD) can tell you categorically, that Particular School is the Turning Point in our lives.

And this School came as a result of someone who heard God distinctly, and obeyed the Lord. And the result is what we are seeing today.

We Pray that the Almighty God Who spoke to our father-in-the-Lord; and Who also taught and discipled him and made him a Tool of Discipleship for all of us.

That same God will continue to Strengthen him, use him the more, and Teach him the more, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.

Hallelujah!

I know without any doubt that you are here tonight because, you are COMPLETE IN JESUS.

Colossians 2:9-10:

9 For in Him dwelleth all the Fullness of the Godhead bodily.

10 And ye are Complete in him, which is the Head of all Principality and Power:

That is, in Jesus dwelleth all the Fullness of the Godhead bodily. And we are Complete in Him.

Every Believers, every Christians, everyone who has put his or her trust in the Living God through the Lord Jesus Christ; we are Complete in Him, which is the Head of all Principality and Power.

Now I read our Bible Text: (Colossians 2:9-10) from the New Living Translation – and it says:

“For in Christ lives all the Fullness of God in a Human Body. So you also are complete through your Union with Christ, who is the Head over every Ruler and Authority.”

And if the Fullness of God is in Christ Jesus, and lives in Him – In His Human Body; that same Fullness of God can make you also Complete – Amen.

Even as you are also here tonight or reading now on the Label of DMC; you can begin to experience that same Fullness of the Living God, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.

The Bible says we are Complete through our Union with Christ.

To be Complete is to have all that is necessary;

It to to be total;

It is to have everything you need absolutely.

… That is what it means to be Complete!

It is to make something Whole;

To Perfect something!

So, when the Bible says: “We are Complete in Him – We are Complete in Christ”:

It means that we have all that is necessary for our Life – Body, Soul and Spirit.

And I will like you to say this to the Life of someone not too far from you. I like you to say: You have all that is necessary for your Life – Body, Soul and Spirit.

… Please say it again!

You have ALL, not some! As you are seated here today or reading now on the Label of DMC, if you are a Believer in Christ Jesus and the Bible says you are Complete in Him:

It means that you have all that is necessary for your Life – Body, Soul and Spirit. All that is necessary!

Listen to this: The Bible tells us in Genesis Chapter 1; because somebody may tell me around here and say:

Pastor, you don’t really understand that I have lots of need in my Life. Yes! – God understands that.

And that’s why the Bible says in James 1:3-4 – Knowing this, that the trying of your Faith worketh Patience. But let Patience have her Perfect work, that ye may be Perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

God is saying, all those things that you desire in your Life right now; that you think are not there yet; all you need is Patience.

Because He is working out everything that you need to make your Joy to be full. He is working it out in your Life, in your System.

Even tonight, He will Perfect His work in your Life, so that “you will be Perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”

… And somebody will say a good Amen – AMEN.

I will be looking at THREE (3) THINGS very quickly;

And then I will speak Specifically to the Disciples for about five (5) Minutes after I have looked at those three (3) Things.

1. RESTORATION
2. RESOURCES, and
3. RESULTS

1. RESTORATION:

The Original Design of God for our lives is spelt out in Genesis 1:26-28 – We know that very Passage very well, where God said:

And God said, Let us make man in our Image, after our Likeness: and let them have Dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the Earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the Earth. So God created man in his own Image, in the Image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

The Original Design of God for you as an individual is that you will have Dominion over everything upon the surface of the Earth.

For that Purpose, He created man and woman – This is the summary of the work of creation that God did.

After He had created every other thing, He created man; and then from the man He created the woman. And He gave them this Specific Instruction.

And the Instruction is to have Dominion: And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth. (Genesis 1:28)

And that is talking about you! That is the Original Design! For everyone that God sends to the world, that is the Original Design:

The Design is that you must be Fruitful, you will Multiply, you will Replenish the Earth, you will Subdue the Earth and have Dominion over everything He created.

Tell your neighbour: I AM HERE TO SUBDUE!

That is what you are here to do! You are not here to be subdued; you are here to subdued. And subduing begin from the Spiritual Level.

As you begin to subdue in the Spiritual Level, you will begin to see the manifestation in the Physical Level.

You are here to Subdue and have Dominion. And beginning from tonight you will manifest Dominion – Amen.

… I can’t hear your Amen well – AMEN.!!!

I can Perceive that the amen of some People are like the Amen of those who are being subdued – AMEN!!!!

God bless you for that Amen – AMEN!!!!

The Bible says, God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the Earth, and subdue it: and have Dominion …

These are commands; specific instructions spoken to you as a Complete Human Being. You will remember that everything God speaks to obey! And everything He speaks to begin to Perform what God ask it to do.

God spoke into Darkness, Light manifest. There was a speration between Light and Darkness. God spoke to the Earth and the Earth began to bring forth.

Everything that God speaks to, immediately responds! In the same way, He spoke to the body of Adam and Adam began to rule.

And that is the reason you must know that this issue of Bearing Rule and Dominating did not begin with you – It has been there all the while.

And may I tell you: If Adam was able to Bear Rule, it means you also, you can Bear Rule. You can Dominate, you can Subdue. And it has to begin from your Inner Mind.

You must make up your Mind; your Mindset must Change from tonight. From this moment you must begin to tell yourself…

Because “Self Talk” is more important than any other Person’s talk. What you say to yourself is more important than!

Begin to say to yourself tonight – I AM HERE TO SUBDUE: I AM HERE TO DOMINATE.

And as you begin to speak that to yourself it will come to Pass, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.

Psalms 115:16 says: The Heaven, even the Heavens, are the LORD’s: but the Earth hath He given to the children of men.

… but the Earth hath He given to the children of men.

That was the Original Design – Everything that must happen here on Earth must begin with man; with the woman that God has Placed here on Earth.

God has put the Power to Authorize, the Power to Dominate and Subdue in your mouth. The Bible says, “But the Earth hath he given to the children of men.”

You will see that time and again, God will have to seek for man that He will speak through. Through whom He will have to Pass what He desires to do. And you are the man! You are the woman!

It is because we have failed in our ability to achieve what God wants us to do and that is the reason why the enemy and his children, that is why why take over our environment. Because we have refused to do what God wants us to do.

And as a Child of the Living God, you must know tonight: the Earth hath He given to you to Dominate and to Subdue.

And whatsoever you decree from this moment on shall come to Pass – Amen.

… Let the Amen be louder – AMEN!!!

Unfortunately, Adam and Eve lost out when they yielded to Satanic Ploy and disobeyed God’s commands.

Disobedience will make you lose out. Disobedience will bring you under the Authority of Satan.

They yielded to Satanic Ploy and they lost out! But Glory be to the Living God – That is the reason why we are talking about being Complete in Jesus tonight;

… Because the Lord Jesus came to our rescue. He came to our rescue!

That is the reason why we can stand here tonight; and we can issue commands in His Name and things will begin to happen.

He came to our rescue! What Adam lost Jesus restored back to us.

In Colossians 2:13-15, the Bible says, Jesus spoiled Principality and Power because of yourself and myself. He made a Show of them Openly. A Public show of all Powers of Darkness. He triumphed over them.

… So that you would know that you can triumph!

I want you to tell your neighbour – Beginning from now, I am triumphing!

Please, say it very well! Say it again: BEGINNING FROM NOW, I AM TRIUMPHING!

That was the reason why, when He sent the Disciples out to Preach the Gospel and to cast out demons, the Bible tells us in Luke 10:19: Behold, I give unto you Power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the Power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

It is an aberration for a Believer to be running helter skelter – From one Prayer House to the other, looking for Deliverance.

Because the Bible says – The One Who saved your Soul, He says: I give unto you POWER to tread on serpents and scorpions.

Anytime I see anyone describing himself as a Deliverance Minister – I know that’s an aberration because, every Believer, every Disciple is a Deliverance Minister.

I want every Disciples here and those watching live all over the world to arise this Particular hour. Wherever you may be right now, stand on your feet (every Disciples).

If you are a Disciple, I want you to lift your right hand and say after me: Heavenly Father, I Thank because You have given me Power;

… And I want you to shout that POWER very well – POWER!!!

You have given me POWER to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the Power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt me.

And the Church will say a Glorious Amen to that – AMEN!!!

You can have your seat. God bless you!

That is the Word of the Lord to you! That is what Jesus said – When He came He Restored to us what we had lost. He Restored the Authority that Adam lost in the Garden; He restored it back to you.

And everything that He did when He was here on Earth; just as He has told us; you can do! And you can do even greater works.

That was what He told us; and that is what we have seen in manifestation – He restored to us Authority.

But for us to manifest that Authority, you have got to make a demand on that Anointing that has been released upon your life.

When you make a demand upon it, the Power of the Living God will back you up, and you will see things happening in your Life – Amen.

As you get out of this Particular Place today, you will be leaving here as an Extraordinary Person – AMEN.

2. RESOURCES:

What Resources has He made available to us? Several Resources:

Resources No. 1: THE NAME OF JESUS.

He gave us the Name of Jesus!

Our father-in-the-Lord told us yesterday (at July 2022 Holy Communion Service) what we have through the Name of Jesus.

According to Philippians 2:9-11, the Bible reveals to us that:

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every names: That at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven, and things in Earth, and things under the Earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God the Father.

… He gave us the Name of Jesus!

I. Jesus got that Name because His Father has given it to Him.

II. He got that Name because He has already won Victories over all the Powers of the devil.

III. He got that Name because it was His Inheritance.

So, He got that Name, and through that Name He said – By this Name, you can have whatsoever you want when you use the Name of Jesus.

When you command in the Name of Jesus, it is like Jesus Himself speaking.

I discovered when we were still very, very small, how the goat dealt with us. When they give us something to eat and you take it little, because we didn’t want it to finish on time. The goat would be watching you, then comes near. And while you are not watching, it takes the thing away from you.

But the day comes, while the goat was coming, your mother was not too far away! She saw the goat coming and she said “KAII!!!!” At that moment, the goat ran back out and ran away.

… And then the child discovers: Oh, just one word can make that stubborn goat to run.

The next time the goat was coming, what is it that child did? What did he say? The child said KAII!!!!

And the moment the child said “KAII” what was the response of the goat? The goat cannot differentiate between who was saying “KAII”.

In the same way, when you command that demon, it is the same way exactly that demons cannot differentiate whether it is you or Jesus.

Because Jesus is speaking through you! Because at the Name of Jesus, every knee must bow!

… Shout a good Hallelujah – HALLELUJAH.

That is the reason why, beginning from now, as we disperse all over the world – After this Convention; after this Particular Holy Ghost Service: wherever we go, wherever we see the imprint of the devil, we cast him out!

Tell your neighbour: wherever I find the imprint of the devil, I cast him out!

… I want you to say that with all boldness.

Luke 10:17 says: And the seventy returned again with Joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are Subject unto us through thy Name.

“… Even the devils are Subject unto us through Thy Name.”

Beginning from now, just as the Disciples came back with those words; just as they had that experience; you will come back in the same way to give the same report, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.\

RCCG COMPLETE IN JESUS MINISTERING TALK BY PASTOR EZEKIEL A. ODEYEMI

Resources No. 2: THE BLOOD OF JESUS.

… We have just seen the Name of Jesus; we are looking at the Blood of Jesus!

The Bible says in Ephesians 2:13, But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the Blood of Christ.

It is by the Blood that he has brought us close to Himself: we are made nigh by the Blood of Christ.

We used to be far away from the Commonwealth of the House of God. Far away from the Plan and Purpose that God had for our lives.

But through the Blood he changed the narrative. By today he has brought us near. Hebrews 10:19 says: Having therefore, Brethren, Boldness to enter into the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus,

By the Blood of Jesus you can enter Into the Holiest; you can enter into the Place where nothing will be refused you.

You can enter into the Place where God dwells and you can make your demand known by the Blood of Jesus.

The Bible says, Brethren, you should come and enter with boldness.

When you enter into the Holiest with boldness, you can demand for what you have right to ask of.

The Bible says, ask until your Joy is Full (John 16:24).

Hebrews 13:20 says: Now the God of Peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that Great Shepherd of the Sheep, through the Blood of the Everlasting Covenant,

The blood we are talking about is the Blood of the Everlasting Covenant.

It is the Blood that cannot lose its Value; the Blood that cannot lose its Power.

That Blood was effective Two Thousand Years ago, that Blood is effective Two Thousand Years later.

It is the Blood of the Everlasting Covenant. That is the Blood of Jesus. It is a Resource that God has made available to you. That’s the reason why no Power of the enemy can touch you.

When I was still a Young Convert, my boldness in Christ Jesus increased one day when I listened to an Evangelist who was giving a Testimony about what happened to him when he went to a certain Village.

He said: after I finished Ministering in that Village one day, in the night, all the witches in that Particular Place gathered together. He said he found them around his bed. He saw them moving around his bed. And then he was wandering: what is going on here?

Then he asked the Holy Spirit – Holy Ghost, what is going on? Why is it that they cannot come close to me?

The Holy Spirit said, watch carefully, you will see the BLOODLINE surrounding your bed. They cannot come near you!

And because this man used to be an old Police man – He retired from the Nigeria Police Force.

So he asked the Holy Spirit: what am I supposed to do? What should I do to these ones? The Holy Spirit said, do whatever you like!

So he commanded them; he said, ATTENTION! And all of them came to attention. And then he asked them to begin to do double match. And that’s what they were doing; and then he slept off!

Beginning from today, those things that make you afraid, you will make them afraid – AMEN!!!

… I cannot hear your Amen – AMEN!!!!

We are Powered by the Blood of Jesus. Make use of that Power. Wherever you are, the Blood is there. The Bloodline is all around you. You don’t have to live in fear. The Bloodline is around you!

RCCG COMPLETE IN JESUS MINISTERING TALK BY PASTOR EZEKIEL A. ODEYEMI

Resources No. 3: THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST.

The third Resource that God has given to us (through Jesus) is the Resource of the Holy Ghost.

And listen to this very well – I am not speaking about someone who is just Speaking in Tongues.

… In our Generation we are People who Speak in Tongues – Bla bla bla bla!!! (That’s all you are just saying).

But that is just Tongues! When you are Baptised in the Holy Ghost, the Power will come (and then the Tongue)! And you will know that something has happened to you. Power!

That’s the reason why John the Baptist said to us in Matthew 3:11: I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with Fire:

I want everybody to say that Fire – FIRE!!!!

I want you to say that Fire again – FIRE!!!

Now listen to me: How can we have so many of us Baptised in the Holy Ghost and with Fire and any work fo the devil can stay around us?

Just one minute, I want you to stand on your feet and I want you to blow away with the Tongues of the Holy Spirit and with Fire that supported your Life. Begin to Pray in the Holy Ghost.

… And if there is anyone who has not received the Power of the Holy Ghost here tonight, I command you to receive, in the Name of the Lord Jesus – Amen.

As you open your mouth, the Power of the Living God is coming upon you now.

Thank You Heavenly Father! Blessed be Your Name! In Jesus’ Mighty Name we Pray – Amen.

… You can have your seat!

Acts 1:8: But ye shall receive Power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be Witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost Part of the Earth.

You shall receive POWER! I want you to look at the sequence that the Lord Jesus gave us here:

I. You shall receive Power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:

II. Then He said after that you will become Witnesses.

It is only after that, you can Witness unto the Power of the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

A Young man was travelling one day and in that Commercial Vehicle that he was, there was a herbalist who was also coming from the Village – who was taking his “goods” (his charms) to the big City.

And the Young man didn’t know the herbalist was there. Anyway, it didn’t make any difference!

And the Young man began to Preach about Jesus. And he began to talk about what Jesus can do. And the herbalist became angry and he commanded him to stop!

And the Young man said: Papa, what have I done? I am Preaching about Jesus. The herbalist said, stop now! If you don’t stop, I will show you ‘Power.’

Then the Young man laughed!

… I want you to laugh at the devil! Please laugh at the devil.

And then the Young man said: Papa, whatever you like you can do! But I am not going to stop Preaching about Jesus. And the herbalist was angry. He commanded the driver to stop. He said, “I want to show this Young man where Power lies.” And then the driver stopped!

The herbalist brought out something from his bag of charms. He brought out what we call “Ashe” (meaning Authority in Yoruba land). And he said to the Young.man, “I am going to show now where Power lies.”

There was one big tree not too far away. And he made his incantations and Pointed the charm at that Particular tree. And within seconds, the tree began to wither.

And then he told the Young man: “Now you have seen! Because I am about to show you the Power in you now – if you don’t change what you have said.”

And everybody in the vehicle began to beg the young man: Hey! Young man, do you want to die? Why do you want to waste your Life? And then the Young man laughed and said: Papa, do whatever you like!

Then the herbalist Pointed the charm to the Believer: one minute, two, three, four, five minutes….

…. Let somebody shout hallelujah – HALLELUJAH!!!!

When the herbalist saw that nothing happened to the Young man, he looked at himself, he looked at the charm. And he Packed his load (of charms) and went back to his Village.

Because of you, something New is about to happen in the world – AMEN.

That is the reason why you must not leave this Campground the way you came!

Those who have these Testimonies are like you: They are not different from you, they don’t have Titles – They are just Believers.

The Greatest Title that anybody can have is to be a Child of God: Born Again through the Sacrifice of the Lord Jesus.

If you are truly Born Again, Power is already deposited in you and you can make things happen.

And beginning from now, through you, Great and Mighty things will happen though you because you are COMPLETE IN JESUS – Amen.

… Let that Amen be louder – AMEN!!!

Resources No. 4: HIS VERY OWN PRESENCE.

Another Resource that He has made available to us is His very own Presence.

In Matthew 28:20(B), the Lord Jesus said: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Everywhere you go, 24/7 Who is by your side? – JESUS!

Let me hear you shout that Name – JESUS!!!!!

As a Missionary on the Field, I have faced very serious and frightening situations. But at every Point in time, one thing that has helped me is that, I am not alone! Standing by me is the Lord Jesus.

And He cannot send me on an Assignment and abandon me there. That is absolutely impossible!

So I want to to shout that Name – JESUS!!!!

And that takes me to the last Point: we have looked at Restoration, Resources. We are now looking at:

3. RESULTS:

Simon Peter, a man who came in contact with the Living Jesus. A man who was an Ordinary Fisherman – but transformed through the Sacrifice of the Lord Jesus.

Himself and John, they went about Preaching the Gospel. And whilst they were going to the Temple one day in Acts 3:1-8; the Bible reveals to us that they met a man who was lame and the man was made whole.

While the man was jumping, leaping and rejoicing, People gathered.

Don’t forget, few days before, Peter had Preached, three thousand (3,000) People had given their lives to Christ.

When People who gathered together saw what had happened; Peter Preached again. Another five thousand (5,000) People gave their lives to Christ. And then, the Powers that be became angry because they were afraid!

From the first Century, the Powers that be had always been afraid of the Church. It is not just today. They are always afraid! And they always make attempt to cower the Church down. But it has never worked! And it will never work.

In Acts 4:13 the Bible says: Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and Perceived that they were Unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

Now listen to me: what Jesus is expecting from you is your boldness.

Can someone see you and say you have been with Jesus?

Can someone see boldness in you?

Can someone see the manifestation of the Name of Jesus in you?

They saw Peter, and they said, this one is not from our School. This one was not trained by our Professors.

… This one was trained by Someone Greater than us – The Man Jesus!

Whoever has sat under the tutelage of the Lord Jesus; discipled by Him; will manifest the same boldness and Power manifested by Peter and John. They would have results!

The Testimony of the Scripture reveals to us because Peter and John has been with Jesus, there were results in their lives.

As you go out from today, you must be a Result Producer – Amen.

Philip was just a Deacon. And every year in the Redeemed Christian Church of God we ordain Thousands of Deacons and Deaconesses. Philip was just one out of few Deacons; and when he found himself in Samaria – Accordimg to Acts 8:5; the Bible tells us that: Then Philip went down to the City of Samaria, and Preached Christ unto them.

… He Preached Christ and not himself!

Acts 8:6 says: And the People with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the Miracles which he did.

He was just one of the Deacons. But through his Preaching of Jesus, Miracles began to happen. He didn’t have to send for his Pastor before Miracles could happen.

Every Believers can Perform Miracles, because you carry the Completeness of Jesus inside of you.

And I decree to your Life from today: You shall Produce Results – Amen.

And then the Bible says in Acts 8:8: And there was great Joy in that City.

… One man brought Joy into a whole City. One man!

And yet we have several Churches in our Cities; and we are not making impact. That has become a dead story – Amen!

Beginning from now, everyone of us, we shall make impact in our Localities, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.

The Bible tells me in Acts 8:9: But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same City used sorcery, and bewitched the People of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:

You know the Story very well – Between that time he was a “Big man”. He had used sorcery and wizardry in bewitching the People. People had been running to him because he was a “Great Man”.

… He was using the Power of Darkness – because Light had not manifested.

How can there be herbalist by the side of your Church, and they have not shut down?

How can there be People who are Practicing wizardry; doing all kinds of things by your Church?

And many of you have failed to Preach against witches and wizards inside your Church. You know they are there and have taken over your Pulpit. What effontry

That will never happen again! Every witch, wizard in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), we declare death upon them, in the Name of Jesus – Amen.

… I can’t hear your Amen well- AMEN!!!!

I am not the one who said so. It is in the Bible.

Exodus 22:18, Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.

So tell your neighbour: SUFFER NOT A WITCH TO LIVE.

Hallelujah!

I know the Fire is already brewing in your heart. I know you are charged! I know something is happening to you already – Hallelujah!

… Quickly, I want to talk to those of us who are Disciples. Just for a few Minutes:

Through the School of Disciple (SOD); we have had at least three (3) things that God has used the School to do in this great Organization – The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).

But on the other side, we have also has three (3) Losses.

So I am going to talk about THREE (3) GAINS and THREE (3) LOSSES.

God Promised our father-in-the-Lord that He will raise an Army for him. And God fulfilled that Particular Promise through the School of Disciple (SOD).

God taught our father-in-the-Lord (Pastor E.A Adeboye) and gave him the Curriculum:

I. Know Yourself;
II. Know your Enemy, and
III. The Weapons of our Warfare.

Three (3) Powerful Things! And God taught him Systematically from Genesis to Revelation about these Three (3) Subjects; and he was able to decode the Mind of God concerning these three (3) things – Know yourself, know your Enemy and the Weapon of our Warfare. And through that, God used it to raise People all over the world.

I have Good News for you: through this Particular Programme, all over the world, People have been raised.

Listen to me: In our First Year in the School of Disciple, a Sister got an Appointment (after the first year) to do and work outside Nigeria. Just one year!

After just one year that she was sent out; in a Place where Preaching the Gospel was forbidden, she was able to Plant a Church – Hallelujah!

THREE (3) GAINS

1. Through the School of Disciple (SOD), we have been able to raise well trained Christian Workers and Ministers who are mobilised for Soul Winning and Church Planting.

2. Through the School of Disciple (SOD), we have been able to Grow the Church more than we would have done.

3. Through the School of Disciple (SOD), we have been able to Perpetually train People because, from the School of Disciple (SOD), you never Graduate.

These are the Three (3) Things that God has used the School of Disciple (SOD) to do; and even more!

THREE (3) LOSSES

But there are three (3) Losses that I have seen:


1. LOSS OF PURPOSE:

The School of Disciple (SOD) was not started because of Ordination – Ordination is just a Byproduct.

We lost the Purpose of the School of Disciple (SOD) when several People will go round and they will begin to use that to attract People – “Come to the School of Disciple (SOD), because if you don’t come, you will not be Ordained.

Listen to me: A man of God said: “When the Purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable.”

When we lost the Purpose of the School of Disciple (SOD), we began to Produce People who have no relevance in the Kingdom of God.

… Loss of Purpose!

2. LOSS OF FOCUS:

Somebody said, “Your Focus will determine your Reality.”

Many of us in the Ministry today; many of us who have Passed through through the School of Disciple (SOD) today, we are focussed on: Position, Money and Gratification.

We lost focus of the Things of God, no more on Spiritual matters and our lives have become Completely Carnal.

The Bible says in Matthew 6:33: But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

When ambition overrides Vision, the Individual becomes a burden, instead of being a Blessing.

We must seek our Vision again; we must Focus on the things of God.

3. LOSS OF DESIRE.

Finally, loss of Strong Desire or Passion for Results.

It is the desire for results – Just like our Daddy has told us several times: that has driven him to the Place of Prayer and has kept him there!

That’s why even at his age of Eighty (80) years, he still goes round this Campground every night, roaring and Calling upon God – Something is driving him.

… Loss of Strong Desire!

Many of us, we have no desire any more! Once we have Planted our Church and we settle there; we settle down! And everything about our lives settle down.

… Loss of Desire!

Things must change! Disciples of the Living God, THINGS MUST CHANGE – AMEN!

That’s the reason why you must catch Fire again. And the One that baptises with the Holy Ghost and with Fire is here tonight!

I like you to wave your hands to the Almighty God and say – Lord I Thank You tonight. This is the Night I have been waiting for.

Many of us are frustrated; we are confused; we operate in the dark. Because we have lost focus, we don’t know where we are going. Our vision is dim because we have lost focus.

You are going to cry to the Lord, you will say: Heavenly Father, because of Your Mercy, Restore me tonight. Release Your Fire upon my life again.

… Cry to the Living God!

Thank Heavenly Father! In Jesus’ Mighty Name we pray – Amen.4

CLOSING PRAYER

God of the Universe, our Prayers are unto You. Without You we are less than nothing!

You have said in You word, “For without me, you can do nothing.” John 15:5

And so Heavenly Father, even as we have heard Your word tonight, we cry in our hearts that You will Restore us.

We cry unto You that You will Baptise us.

We cry unto You Father, release Your Fire upon our lives.

Through us, ignite all Churches in our Nation, in the Name of Jesus.

Thank You Heavenly Father! In Jesus’ Mighty Name we pray – Amen.
