PASTOR ENOCH ADEJARE ADEBOYE’S ADDRESS
I heard a Child singing yesterday (Tuesday, 28th March 2023). And in the Song, the Child was singing about the Mother – How Mothers are so Extraordinary.
And Part of the Song said – Even Fathers are born of Mothers.
So, when the Mother says to the Father – I need two (2) Minutes; the Father better surrender!
Glory be to God – Hallelujah!
1. And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,
2. And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.
3. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.
4. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
5. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
6. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
7. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
8. When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
9. For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:
10. And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.
11. And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.
We are talking about: “DIVINE ENCOUNTER”.
And of all the Meetings we will be holding in Malawi, as far as I am concerned; this is the “Most Important”.
Because if the Ministers can have an Encounter with God; we have more than enough People here to turn the entire Malawi over to Jesus.
He said in His Words:
I. He said that I will build my Church and the Gates of Hell shall not Prevail – Matthew 16:8.
II. And the Word of God says in 2 Corinthians 5:20 – That you are His Ambassadors.
III. According to John 15:16; He said that you have not Chosen me but I have Chosen you that you will go forth, bear Fruits, make your Fruits abide and then whatever you ask God in my Name, He will do it for you.
IV. He said in John 20:21; He says in Mordern English – As I am an Ambassador of my Father in Heaven, so you are my Ambassador.
… As my Father sent me, so me you.
V. He said in John 14:12; He said that the works I did, you shall do also and Greater works than this shall you do.
There is a lot that the Lord has to say about His Ministers. And as a Minister of God, I’m sure many of you know the Bible far, far more than I do.
In case that you are wondering: Why I’m seated? It is for all of us to feel that this is a Family Meeting – Like a Senior Brother talking to his Brethrens.
I was here last nine (9) years ago and so I don’t know whether I will be ever back – That is in the Hand of God. But at least we have two (2) days.
I want to Pour out my Heart to you as children of the same father.
1. You need a Divine Encounter even before you start your Ministry.
I. Many of us has started the work of a Ministry without an Encounter with the Owner of the Church.
II. Many of us are in Ministries because one thinks that it is Beautiful.
III. Some of us here are in the Ministries because we have failed in other Areas of Life.
IV. Some of us are in the Ministries because we think that it is the easiest way to make Money.
You say who told you that?
It is the same everywhere – Just as it is in Malawi, just it is in Nigeria. And believed it or not, so it is in all Nations of the world.
I have Preached in many Churches all over the world and I remembered an occassion that I gave an Altar Call and the first Fellow to come forward was the Pastor of the Church.
And I know of a Pastor who “Closed Down” his Church because he won a Lottery – Saying: What am I wasting time for? Money has come!
But you need an Encounter with God before you Start a Ministry – Peter had an Encounter with God!
He (Peter) was a Fisherman – A Fisherman who has failed. And then, the Owner of the Church came and borrowed his boat.
The Lord has borrowed some things from some of us:
I. He has borrowed our Voice to Sing.
II. He has borrowed maybe our hands so that we can Clap.
III. He has borrowed maybe our legs so that we can Stand as Ushers.
Then, we just put two and two together and say: I am a Minister of God.
The First Question that you should ask yourself today is: “WHO SENT YOU?”
You may not like me by the time I finished but I will soon run away!
Because Romans 10:15 says: How can they go except they be sent?
Some of us say that my Ministry is not doing “Too Well” – Who sent you?
Is it your belly that sent you? Because Philippians 3:19 says that some People’s God is their belly.
… So, answer the Question quietly!
I believed that because God brought you here this time or made you to be reading this now on the Label of DMC; He is interested in you.
You are a “Material for Ministry” because God doesn’t do anything without a reason.
That He brought you into this Room, brought me all the way from Nigeria to come and tell you the Truth, knowing fully well that I don’t want to be Popular; it is better. And you are already in and so can’t run away – God is interested in you.
2. But more important than that; is that you need another kind of Encounter to Activate your Potentials.
The very fact that you are here gives me the assurance that you are a “Material for Ministry”.
When He said to Peter – Don’t worry yourself; you will no longer Catch fishes but be “Catching Men”; it was like telling Peter – Today, you are discovering the Purpose you came into the world.
You thought that you are made to be a Fisherman; No, you are to be a “Fisher of Men”.
I believed that there are some of us here today or reading now on the Label of DMC; you are discovering that “I am to be a Minister of God”.
I might have been fooling around; I might have been “Playing Church” but at long last; my Ministry is about to Start!
But then three and half (3½) years followed before Peter began to Catch Men – God had already said that from now on; you will be “Catching Men” but he didn’t catch a Man.
That is why after Jesus Christ had come to Heaven and he (Peter) looked around; he said “I go back to my Fishing”.
Then a Day came and like a “Rushing Mighty Wind”; the Holy Spirit came and Peter the Fisherman became “The Fisher of Men”.
And the same Man who has not caught a “Single Man” in the Net of God; Preached one Sermon and won three thousand (3,000) Souls – Acts 2: 1-end.
1. Several years ago, Billy Graham came to Preach in London and you have to Pay to go in and listen to him- The Money collected by the Organiser.
And I heard him Preach – Ha, my Sunday School Teacher can do better than that.
But when he gave the Altar Call; People began to Stream forward.
I had to say to God: What is going on here?
2. In 1979, I went to Tulsa Oklahoma, USA because I heard of Kenneth Hagin. I got there and I saw a crowd from all over the world – Seventeen Thousand (17,000) People.
What is going on here?
On my way home in the Plane, I spoke to God because I saw Miracle happening and there was Nothing that he said that I have not said before.
So I said to God on my way home – If I get back to Nigeria and you don’t do what I have seen you do here; then I will say that You are a Racist.
He (God) didn’t kill me on the Plane because He knew my Heart – “I was Hungry”.
Why must you be bringing “White People” to us all the time.
They had been calling us “The Dark Continent”.
But they brought the Light, we received the Light and so when are we going to Shine?
In the Name that is above every other name, after today; you will Shine – Amen!
So, you need a Second Encounter – And this time, it is an Encounter with Fire!
WHAT DO YOU NEED THE FIRE FOR?
The Bible says that He will baptise you with Holy Ghost and with Fire – Matthew 3:11.
Oh, many of us had been Baptised with the Holy Spirit – We speak in Tongues but we need the Fire.
Because when the Fire comes:
I. There will be no need for Posters – Fire will Advertise itself.
II. Wnere the Fire is burning, People will know!
And as God lives, who has sent me to you here in Malawi; you will catch Fire today – Amen!
HOW DO I GET THE FIRE?
There are two (2) ways of getting the Fire:
1. It is either you get the Fire directly from God.
Like Moses did in Exodus 3: 1-12.
And God was going to turn a Fugitive to a National Deliverer – He (God) sent Fire.
2. The Second Way you can get Fire for as many of us who are children from Village.
At least I know this from Nigeria – In those days, you are going to the Farm; it is either you take Fire from home when going to the Farm or when you get to the Farm, you climb a tree, look round to the other Farms and see where Smoke is coming from. And then you go in that Direction and from that Fellow who has that Fire, you borrow your own Fire.
They used a very big word to describe it – They call it Impartation!
Deuteronomy 34:9 says: And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the Spirit of Wisdom.
Why? For Moses had laid his hands upon him.
Moses transferred his Fire to Joshua!
This Evening, there is going to be Impartation!
I have travelled all over the world because I am Hungry.
Like Paul, I had a PhD in Mathematics – I left it to be a Pastor and the Church is not Growing.
I didn’t become a Pastor because I failed before – I became a Pastor because I love You and I want to serve You.
So, when I heard that the Church is Growing somewhere, I go to find out what is going on?
I travelled all the way from Nigeria to South Korea because of a Man called David Yonggi Cho.
I got there and for the first time in my Life, I saw a Man in an Auditorium that can take fifty thousand (50,000) People; holding seven (7) Services on Sunday and begging People that those who came to Church this Sunday, must not come to Church Next Sunday so that those who couldn’t come into the Church this Sunday can come in Next Sunday.
I said: God, You are not a Respecter of Persons. What You are doing in South Korea, you should be able to do it in Nigeria.
And I was willing to Pay any Price – I cried to Him, and He heard me.
So years ago, I went back to South Korea – The first time I couldn’t come near David Yonggi Cho’s Office but this time around, I saw him.
And when they introduced me to him; he said that I have heard of you – Please, Pray for me.
Are you ready for an Encounter with God? This Night can Change your Ministry!
So, what are we going to do?
I will request the Assistance of those who Organised this Meeting because Fire begets Fire!
They will help me – They will come, I will lay hands on them and then they will help me lay hands on all of you.
One Final Note before we begin the Impartation:
This same People can receive the same Impartation but then very soon, you will discovered that some People are burning faster than the other.
That is because of Hebrews 1:9 – It says because you love Righteousness and hate Iniquity; therefore God, even your God has Anointed you with the Oil of Gladness above your Fellow.
There will be Impartation now – How quickly you begin to see results depends on you. It depends on how Thirsty you are!
For Wood to become Firewood or for Firewood to become Fire; it is not just because we apply Fire to the Firewood but how long the Firewood is in the Fire.
How Hungry are you? How Thirsty are you?
And then, for the Fire to keep on burning, will you live Holy from now on?
Because sooner or later, when your Fire begins to burn; there will be those who will tell you – Everything is by Grace. And I agree!
But the Bible says that you cannot continue in sin and expect Grace to abound?
My Song is: Breathe and think of His Holiness. I want to Please God, I want to Love what He loves, I want to Hate what He hates!
I. I know that He hates Lying.
II. I know that He hates Fornication.
III. I know that He hates Adultery.
IV. I know that He hates Hypocrisy.
V. I know that He hates Pride.
Are you ready for Impartation? Are you ready for Fire?
Even before my Colleagues begin to lay hands on you; you will be Praising God that this Day has finally come.
And the moment that they lay hands on you, you will demonstrate it by Praying in the Spirit – Set this Place on Fire and let this Place Shake.
I will tell you on Last Story – I normally tells you Stories because I have gone through quite a lot in Life.
Six (6) of us – My father-in-the-Lord and five (5) others, we went to this Kenneth Hagin’s Meeting I was talking about and stayed in one Hotel called Mayor in Tulsa Oklahoma, USA.
One Morning, my father-in-the-Lord called the rest of us into his Room and he made a “Big Announcement” that I will be Succeeding him.
It took us by Surprise and so we began to Pray – Violent Prayer!
Suddenly, Somebody knocked on the door of the Room – I was the nearest to the door, I opened to him and it was the Engineer of the Hotel.
He said that what kind of Musical Instruments are you Playing? I said that we are not Playing any Instrument but we are Praying.
He said: No, and I said why?
Anyway, he came in, searched the Room and saw no Instrument.
When he was going out; Puzzled he said: What do you say that you are doing? I said that we are Praying.
So, I asked him why? He said because the Hotel was shaking and we have traced the Source of the Shaking to this Room.
They didn’t believed me that six (6) boys from Africa Prayed and shakes an Hotel.
They shut down the Hotel for thirty (30) years because they dug round the Foundation and found Nothing wrong but the Hotel shook.

After thirty (30) years, I was visiting again with my little children and said let me showed you Hotel that shook when we Prayed.
When I saw that the Hotel was still “Boarded Off”; I was moved with Compassion, laid my hands on the Wall and Prayed a Simple Prayer.
Six (6) Months later, the Hotel was re-opened.
Why am I telling you that Story – You may not feel it; this Room is going to Shake tonight!
Let the Organising Committee Members kindly come up now!
Now, it is going to be your turn – These Servants of the Most High God (Organising Committee Members) will line up infront of you and you will come in an orderly Fashion and they will lay hands on you. You will receive the Fire and you will go back to your seat Praying.
GENERAL PRAYER AFTER THE IMPARTATION
Just go ahead and Worship the Almighty God – Give Him Glory, give Him Honour and give Him Adoration.
Enjoy your New Fire in the Holy Spirit – The Section of Speaking in Tongues!
Thank You Father. Glory be to Your Holy Name.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!
My Father and my God, Thank You.
Thank You because You are a Faithful God because when You speaks, it is done and when you Commands, it Stands firm.
Thank You for Baptising Your Children with Fire – Please, don’t let the Fire go out. Let Your Fire advertise their Ministries.
From now on, in all their Ministries, let Miracles become Common and let Malawi be saved.
Please, don’t let the Fire go out!
In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!
Now, when God visits His People and He has just done something; the Wisest Thing to do is to say Thank You.
So, I will encourage us to take a Thanksgiving Offering just to say Thank You to God.
Sing a Local Dialets Song (Malawi Song) that we can dance to.
Over to you Band!!!
