RCCG MARCH 2021 DIVINE ENCOUNTER THEME: GOD BLESS YOU – PART 3 (I WILL LIFT UP MY EYES UNTO THE HILLS).
MINISTERING: PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE TOPIC: I WILL LIFT UP MY EYES.
DATE: 1ST MARCH, 2021
BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 121:1-2
Let’s lift our hands to the Most High God and begin to Bless His Holy Name: Give Him Glory, give Him Honour, give Him Adorations.
Worship the Ancient of Days, Magnify His Holy Name. Just Praise Him! Adore Him, He is worthy to be Praised.
He has brought you to the Third (3rd) Month of this Year: Give Him Glory, give Him Honour, give Him Adorations. Just bless His Holy Name.
There’s no one like Him! It’s not everyone who said ‘Happy New Year’ who is still alive today. You are alive! You survived January, you survived February. Now you are in March!
Give Him Glory, give Him Honour, give Him Adorations, He is Worthy to be Praised! Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him.
Thank Him for all His Goodness, for all His Mercy, for His Faithfulness, for His Love. Bless His Holy Name.
In Jesus’Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!
You are Worthy to Praised,
You are Worthy to Praised,
You are Worthy to Praised.
Ancient of Days, You are worthy to be Praised. The Alpha and Omega, You are worthy to be Magnified.
Thank You for January, Thank You for February, Thank You for bringing us to Match. Accept our Worship, in Jesus’ Name.
Daddy Your Children are here again, they desire an Encounter with you. Today, in a very, very Special Way, come and intervene in our lives.
Let this Month be a very, very Special Month for everyone of us.
In Jesus’Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!
Let somebody shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Wave at one (1) or two (2) People, say: “Good Morning, God Bless you!”
This is a very, very Special Divine Encounter. It is going to be one that you will never forget for the rest of your life – Amen.
It is so Special, that I’m sitting down (laughing)! So Special, we are doing it the way Christ would have done it.
In Luke 5:1, the Bible says, Jesus sat down and the Congregation stood (laughing)!
Let someone shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
And so we have turned the thing upside down – It is actually the Preacher who should sit, and the listeners who should stand. But you are allowed to sit down by Special Permission.
Glory be to God – Hallelujah!
The Theme for the Special Holy Ghost Service as you know very well is: GOD BLESS YOU PART 3. With the Sub-Title ‘I Will lift up my Eyes unto the Hills”.
The Special Divine Encounter therefore, is based on the Topic: *I WILL LIFT UP MY EYES.
So our Text would be Psalms 121:1-2.
1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the Hills, from whence cometh my Help.
2 My Help cometh from the LORD, which made Heaven and Earth.
I want to start straight away by decreeing that: Today: in the Name that is above every other names, God will send Help to you – Amen!
From the East, He will send Help to you; From the West, He will send Help to you; From the North, He will send Help to you; From the South, He will send Help to you. And from Heaven above, He will send help to you – Amen!
If you are the one I’m talking to, let me hear your Amen Loud and clear – AMEN!!!!
Our God, according to Genesis 22:1-14; one of the Names of our God is JEHOVAH JIREH – The God Who Provides! God our Provider
He tells us in Isaiah 55:1 that if you are hungry, you can come to Him and eat, free of charge (And Plenty, too).
According to Psalms 23:1-2, David said: “The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in Green Pastures: he leadeth me beside the Still waters.”
He Provides a lot of Green Grass for the sheep. And He tells the Sheep ‘don’t Stand, don’t hurry, you can lie down – Eat as much as you like.’ Eat, sleep, wake up.anf eat more!
He says if you are tasty, come and drink.
John 7:37 says: “If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink.”
And He is not even talking about a sip of water; you can drink as much as you want.
According to John 4:13-14. He says you can drink and never thirst again.
Our God is the Great Provider – He Provides Food abundantly, Drink, abundantly.
So in His behalf, I am decreeing to someone Today: You will never hunger again – Amen!
And every Good Thing you are thirsty for; my God will Supply – Amen!
Now, there is no Stinginess with our God. 68:19 says: “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our Salvation. Selah.”
Loading His Blessings are not little Blessings – It’s Blessings that you call Loads.
In Psalms 13:6, David said: “I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.”
… Not Stingily!
When God wants to bless you, He doesn’t do it in a way that you can can hardly noticed; He does it bountifully.
For Example, in Malachi 3:10 (that some People don’t like). He says, just one (1) Blessing from Him, will be such that you will not have enough room to contain.
… Just one (1) Blessing!
May I say one more time to all of you who are my children: GOD BLESS YOU – Amen!
In Proverbs 3:9-10, where He says: “Honour the LORD with thy Substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with Plenty, and thy Presses shall burst out with New Wine.”
His own blessing is such that your band cannot contain.
I made a Prophesy Years ago, and in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, from today, it will begin to come Pass:
That one day, when someone takes his or her money to a Bank, they will close the Branch for three (3) days, to attend to you alone – Amen!
And in case you think that’s a joke; I have told you the story before – Few of you would Probably remember because it’s an old one.
When I became General Overseer some forty (40) years ago, there was a Young Man in the Church – a Tailor.
He came to me and said, ‘Daddy, I am a Poor Tailor; I would love to dress you up.’ But I don’t have the money to buy the materials. You buy me the materials, and I will sew for free.
I said to him: my son, because you have chosen to do this: a day would come, when you take your money to the Bank, the Manager would send for you and say ‘What job do you say you do?’
He said ‘Amen!’ But of course, you know that kind of ‘Amen’.
And then the day came, one way or the other, somebody saw how good he was; and Nigeria was going to the Olympics or something. And they gave him the Contract to sew for everybody going.
When they Paid him, and they Paid him in Cash and he took the money to his Bank, the Manager sent for him! And said, ‘what job do you say you do?’
In the Name of the God that I serve; a day would come, that when you threatened a Bank – that you want to withdraw your money, they will beg you – Amen!!!
In Luke 5:1-7 – You know the story.
After Jesus Preached from the Boat of Simon Peter. And He wanted to say ‘Thank You’ to Peter; He told him to cast his ‘NETS’. Peter cast just one (1) “NET”!
And just one (1) Net brought in so much fish that two (2) Boats were full and they were sinking.
That’s my God!
Before the end of this Month, God is going to say ‘THANK YOU’ to somebody – Amen!
When God decides to give you a crumb; as we learnt in Matthew 15:22-28. When a woman came to Him asking for a Miracle.
And Jesus said, I cannot give the bread of children to dogs. The woman said, I’m not asking for the Bread – I’m asking for a crumb. She got a crumb, the crumb solved all her Problems.
Now, according to Psalms 23:5, it says: “Thou Preparest a table before me in the Presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”
Strangers get CRUMBS; Children of God would get CUPS that are running over.
If you are serving the same God that I am Serving: Beginning from this morning onward, your cup would begin to run over – Amen.
But then you see, when David said: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my Help.”
He knows where Help is!
… And he has to lift up his eyes to that Helper of the helpless.
For a Divine Encounter, that Passage “I WILL LIFT UP MY EYES’ could be interpreted to mean: “I will lift up my CUP.”
I Know Super Abundance is there with my God, but for Him to fill my cup to overflowing: I have to LIFT UP MY CUP.
For Example, in 1 Kings 17:8-16, the Widow of Zarephath lifted up her Cup that was almost dry. She got a response – A cup that kept on Overflowing for the rest of her life.
In 2 Kings 4:1-7; the Widow of one of the Sons of the Prophet, who was destitute. When the Creditors came and said, we want to forclose on you and there is nothing in your house we can sell but we sell your children.
She ran to the Man of God, the Man of God said: ‘Get empty Vessels that you are going to lift up to the Great Provider.’ And that little bottle of oil that you say you have left, release it into the pots.
You know the rest of the Story: She NEVER borrowed again!
In 2 Chronicles 1:6-12, Solomon lifted up his Cup – His own Cup was a Giant one (laughed)! Because he was Offering to God a thousand burnt Offering.
I mean, Humanly speaking, you could say ‘Solo, you done enough! You don’t need to lift up any cup again.’ But he lifted it up!
What he got in return, enabled him later.
In 2 Chronicles 7:5; when he lifted up his Giant Cup, and what he got in return was to enable him to give twenty two Thousand (22,000) Oxen, Plus a hundred and Twenty Thousand (120,000) Sheep.
… Now, that is a lot of Overflowing!
You know when you read Philippians Chapter 4; we all love to quote verse 19 – Philippians 4:19: “But my God shall supply all your Needs according to His Riches in Glory, by Christ Jesus.”
We love it!
But read that story from Verse 15 (Philippians 4:15-19),
Apostle Paul was writing to fhe Philippians – He said: Brethren, of ALL the Churches that God has used me to establish; only YOU (Philippians) remembered me when it comes to Giving and Receiving.
Everywhere I went, you sent to me.
He said, I am not begging, I have learnt: when I have, fine! When I don’t have, no Problem!
He said, but you kept on sending to me.
He said, I therefore Decree that my God shall Supply all your Needs, according to His Riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.
He said, because you did your Part, my God will do His Part!
I told you years ago (at least some of you would remember); The entire Teachings of Jesus Christ centers around one Single Statement – ‘NOTHING GOES FOR NOTHING.’
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:”
You don’t Ask, you won’t Receive. You don’t seek, you won’t find. You don’t knock, the door would not be opened.
When you say you want a one hundred (100) fold Return, and you give zero. Zero multiplied by hundred is what? – ZERO!
I have told you before: No matter how Anointed you are; no matter how ‘Great’ a Prayer Warrior you are; if you clear a field and then you go to that field everyday, Fasting and Praying;
Fasting Forty (40) days and Forty (40) nights continuously. And you go to the field and you say “Field, I hereby decree: Produce Rice – and you don’t Plant Rice!’
What will the Field Produce? You better get ready to come and clear another set of weeds.
I’m going to tell you to (2) Stories.
Like I mentioned earlier, today’s Divine Encounter is the one you won’t forget: Because in every man’s life, there’s always a day when the TIDE TURNS.
And the Tide is about to turn for somebody today – Amen!
I’m just reminding you, they are stories some of you have heard before; some of you Probably never heard.
1. In 1981, my first year as General Overseer, I was visiting our Churches (we were ‘many’ then) – A total of about Forty (40) Parishes.
So I visited our Church in Ilesha (Town in Osun State, Nigeria). When I finished Ministering in the Church that evening, I stood outside waiting for the driver to come and pick me up.
I saw a Young man who was coming towards me. As he was coming, he was Prostrating and getting up! When he got to me (he didn’t say anything)! He just dropped something in my Pocket and began to run away.
When I saw the way he was behaving before getting to me, I quickly checked ‘what has he dropped in my Pocket?’ And I brought it out! It was a fifty (50) Kobo Note.
… In those days, fifty (50) Kobo was a Note!
And so I called him back: Son, why are you running away?
‘Well, they told me the General Overseer was coming. How can my Daddy come, and I can’t give him anything?’
He said, this is all I have! That’s why I was begging you before I gave it to you.
I said to him: My son, I will spend this money Personally.
At least in those days, fifty (50) Kobo could buy one (1) or two (2) oranges.
I will spend it Personally: and from the bottom of my heart, I say to you son: GOD BLESS YOU – Amen!
The following Year, I was back in the same Church. I saw the same Boy, he came to me smiling. Daddy do you remember me? “How can I forget my Fifty (50) Kobo Boy (Laughing)!
He said, last time you came, I was a Jobless Teacher. After you left, I started Coaching Classes and little children were coming to me.
And all those who came to my Classes, they were succeeding so well. And they were telling others. He said, I had to employ People. He said now Sir, I have a School of my own.
May I repeat to somebody reading this Message now on the Label of DMC: GOD BLESS YOU – Amen!
2. And I will tell you another story (again, you have heard before). This time, it’s not a Fifty (50) Kobo Story.
I went to Preach in Ikoyi (Town in Lagos State Nigera).
I go there once a Year in those days to talk to some very, very ‘BIG’ People. Small People are not allowed to come – Just the ‘BIG’ ones!
When I finished one night (and I always spend the night with my Host); there was this Young man who came to me in the Dinning Table;
Sir, I have never heard anyone Preach like this before. And so I have made up my mind, I want to give you a Gift.
I said okay!
And at that time (if I remembered correctly) I think he had about eleven (11) Petrol Stations. He was a small Boy, compared to the others!
He said, this is all I have with me. And he gave me Ten Thousand (10,000) Dollars.
So I blessed him. I said: GOD BLESS YOU. I said, next time will be MORE.
According to his Testimony a Year later; when he left me, he was angry! – What kind of greedy Pastor is this? I gave him Ten Thousand (10,000) Dollars, and he said next time would be More.
… And I’m talking about Years ago!
By the time he came the following Year, he had a hundred and ten (110) Petrol Stations.
And so he brought another gift. I took it from him. I said, GOD BLESS YOU, next time will be MORE.
This time round he said – AMEN!!!!!
You say: ‘What did he give you the second (2nd) time?’ That’s none of your business!
The following Year, he came. This time round, he has a Depot of his own. He doesn’t need to go to any Depot to go any queue anymore!
And he brought another Gift! And this time I said – GOD BLESS YOU, next time will be MORE.
Is there Somebody here today, who wants me to say GOD BLESS YOU? – Yes, The DMC FAMILY!
GOD BLESS YOU! NEXT TIME WILL BE MORE – Amen!!!!
You are going to Pray this morning.
You are going to say: Father: I am lifting my Cup to You. And You know how much I have in that Cup. But I’m lifting it up to You:
By this time next Year, let me return – Not with a Small Cup, not with a Bucket; but with a Tanker.
That’s the Prayer that you are going to Pray this morning.
But before you Pray;
In case you have not yet given your life to Jesus Christ; the best you can get from God will be a crumb.
But if you come and surrender your life to Him and He saves your Soul; then one day, you too will be able to say – “Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runs over”*
So if you want to give your life to Jesus, come now!
Talk to the Almighty God, ask Him to save Your Soul and have Mercy on you.
Promise to serve Him wholeheartedly from now on. Ask Him to forgive all your sins and give you a New Beginning.
And the rest of us, let’s stretch our hands to these People, intercede for them. Pray that the Almighty God who saved your Soul will save their own Souls also.
…. Go ahead, talk to God for a Minute.
Thank You Father!
In Jesus’Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
PRAYER FOR SALVATION
Saviour, we just want to say Thank You.
Thank You for Your Words. Thank You for these People that have come to surrender their lives to You.
Father, Please, receive them. Please, save their Souls. Let Your Blood wash away their sins. Receive them into the Family of God.
From now on, let them be Your children so that anytime they cry unto You, You will be able to answer them by Fire.
Thank You Almighty God.
In Jesus’ Mighty Name Name we have Prayed – Amen!
Those of you who have come forward, congratulations! I want to assure you that from now on, I will be Praying for you.
So I need your name, your address and your Prayer Request.
GOD BLESS YOU!
Thank You FATHER. Amen!
Now, Before we Pray; you want to lift up your Cup, there should be something God will look down and say: ‘This is a Cup commensurate with your standards’.
So you will take your Offering, you Stand on your feet and lift that Offering to God and say: Father, I’m lifting up my Cup to You Today: in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, when I return by this time Next Year, I don’t want to return with a Cup, I don’t want to return with a Bucket; I want to return with a Tanker.
Please Lord, let this day mark a real Turning Point in my life!
Go ahead, talk to the Almighty God with your Offering – Pray that Prayer from the bottom of your heart:
Father I am lifting up my Cup to You today, I know You are the Great Provider. I know You Provide for me. I know no matter how great I may I am now, I am Nothing yet!
I’m lifting up my Cup to You, when I return by this time Next Year, Lord – twelve (12) Months from today: Prosper me so Mightily, that I would return, not with a Cup, not with a Bucket but with a Mighty Tanker; to come and show You my Appreciation.
Thank You Father.
In Jesus’Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!
Well, we handover to the Band – You go to the nearest basket (ONLINE) and drop your Offering.
