Please, accept our Thanks, in Jesus’ Name.

Tonight Lord, Please do something New, do something Special, do something Unfortunately. Please, remember us tonight. Remember us for Good

In Jesus’ Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.

Let someone shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!

Now I want you to shake hands with two (2) or three (3) People – Prophesy to them and say: God will remember you – Amen!

Let’s be seated!

… Very quickly, let me give you some Report.

1. BIRTH REPORT:

Quite incredibly, today God added fourteen (14) children to us – Eleven (11) Boys and three (3) Girls.

So now the total is Thirty Nine (39) Babies – Twenty six (26) Boys and thirteen (13) Girls.

Let the Boys shout Praise the Lord! And let the Girls shout Hallelujah!!!

I think the Boys mean business this time around. Glory be to God – Hallelujah.

2. Viewing Center at the New Arena:

Tomorrow (Day 4, 11th August 2022), by the Grace of God, the New Arena will be open for Ministration – Even though we will still be here (in the Old Auditorium).

But those who will want to watch from the New Arena can begin to do so from tomorrow.

… Well, let’s give the Lord a big round of applause!

First and foremost, before I go to the Message for tonight, I want to Thank the Almighty God for everyone who sang tonight:

The Choir from Uganda – Please, take my Greetings to Papa and Mama, the President and First Lady of Uganda. Tell them we love them and we are Praying for them.

That beautiful Choir from Northern Zone – That was Great!

The Mass Choir of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) of course, everybody knows they are the best in the world.

And then, the Royal Father Choir – Definitely, this is a New Beginning. Kabiyesi’s, your Joy has just started! In your Domains, Miracles will be a daily occurrence – Amen!

It shall.be well with you all – Amen.

Ecclesiastes 12:1:

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy Youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no Pleasure in them;

Yesterday (Day 2), we were addressing the children. Today we want to address the Youth.

And by my definition of Youth (which I am sure you know) – If you are Younger than me, you are a Youth. If you are older than me, you are Old.

Since I am only eighty (80) years old, all the Youth in attendance tonight, shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!!!

Ans I’ll say, let the Elders (those who are older than me) they will just say Amen (laughed).

Glory be to God – Hallelujah!

I have a duty as your Daddy, to tell you the Truth, the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth. If you don’t hear it from me, you are not likely going to hear it from any other Source.

It is my duty as your daddy to Prepare you for what God is about to do – Friday (Day 5, 12th August 2022) will soon be here and several People who have not been here from Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday would be around.

And believe me honestly, as surely as God is still on His Throne, Friday (Day 5) will be awesome (for DMC FAMILY) – Amen.

There will be Perfect Jubilee – Amen.

BUT THEN, WHAT EXACTLY DO WE MEAN BY PERFECT?

We mean without any flaw at all.

And of what use is Jubilee if it is not Perfect?

Of what use is Jubilee, if you get it on Friday and lose it on Saturday?

Of what use is a Miracle if it doesn’t last?

That is why the Bible Text (Ecclesiastes 12:1) is saying to those of us who are Young: “REMEMBER NOW THY CREATOR.”

You see, everybody knows that wounds can heal. But almost invariably, the wounds that have been healed might leave behind a scar.

In 2 Samuel 12:1-14, when the Prophet came and confronted David; “David, you the beloved of the Lord, you did this? – You committed adultery, you killed the husband of the woman and then brought the woman home to cover everything. You did this? You are done for!”

David said: “Oh God, I blew it! So all the time God was watching me? I have sinned.”

Immediately the Prophet said, alright, you have admitted your error; you are forgiven. You will not die; but the sword shall never leave your house.

David was forgiven; he even went ahead to become the father of the King of kings – Bartimaeus said “Jesus, Thou Son of David …”

But have you ever seen a whole year passed, without one kind of Problem or the other in Israel?

… The wound may heal but the scar might remain.

Why should you – Young Man, Young Women remember your Creator now in the days of thy Youth?

Because the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 11:9 – Rejoice in thy Youth, enjoy yourself but remember for everything you are doing now, God is going to bring you to Judgment.

I have heard Parents say, “Leave my children alone, let them sow their own wild oats.” They forget that if you sow wild oats, you will reap wild oats.

You want to copy Others? You think we are too restrictive in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG)? Some of us have walked this way before you; some of us have touched Fire and we have discovered, fire can burn.

Remember thy Creator now in the days of thy Youth: If you blow it, Jubilee can bring Restoration.

But the Elders have a saying, “They say beat me, but I didn’t feel the pain.” They say, “it is better that you are not beaten at all.”

1. Take the Example of Esau – Genesis 25: 28-34.

He couldn’t control his appetite and because of that he sold his Birthright You know the Story!

In Genesis 27:1-40, when it was time for him to get the blessing that belongs to the first born, he (was denied.

But somewhere along the way (I don’t have the time to tell you the Story)….

But somewhere along the way, he had a Jubilee – He Prospered Mightily, so Mightily that if you read Genesis 32:3-8, when the Fellow who got the blessing was returning home and he sent to Esau, “I am coming”.

Esau sent back to him, you are Welcome – I am also coming to meet you with four hundred (400) Bodyguards.

Woooow! – That man must have Prospered!

Because I remembered the first time that the Head of State of this Nation (Nigeria) visited the Camp here, he came with two hundred and fifty (250) Bodyguards. Because it is a Program taking Place at Night, in an Open Place, in a crowd of hundreds of thousands.

That is what you call, Perfect Crisis situation! But he wanted to come, so he came with two hundred and fifty (250) Bodyguards.

Esau had four hundred (400) Bodyguards – That man was Great!

But according to Genesis 32:24-28, it was Jacob who became a Nation. Yes, Esau also became Great, but the scar remained till today.

2. Consider Solomon in 1 Kings 1:5-49.

Somebody tried to steal the Kingdom of Solomon. He had gathered together his People, he had Proclaimed himself King.

And then a Prophet and the mother of Solomon went in to King David and King David restored to Solomon what he had lost.

I Pray for you from the bottom of my heart – Everything anybody has stolen from you (@ DMC FAMILY) my God will restore – Amen

And then Solomon then remembered God in his Youth in 2 Chronicles 1:6-12:

“God You did this for me, I will show You how grateful I am. Even though I am not clever, even though my father happens to be an Adulterer and a Murderer; my mother is an Adulteress of the worst kind; that brought death to her husband, You still made me King. Oh God I am grateful.”

So, he offered to God a thousand Burnt Offerings, and God visited him.

He said Boy, what do you want?

Solomon said: Give me Wisdom, give me Understanding; so that I will be able to rule Your People correctly.

God said fine, what you asked for you can have it. And what you have not even asked for, I will add to it.

… Solomon had a Jubilee and remembered God.

He became so Wise that People became afraid of his Wisdom.

1 Kings 3:16-28; you remember the Story – Two (2) harlots came to him: both of them had a son around the same time. One of the sons died and they came to the King to say, hey! determine whose son died. He wasn’t there, but he solved the Problem.

The Bible said when the Nation heard of his Wisdom, they were afraid.

He asked for Wisdom and God gave him Generously.

But then, when the Bible says “Remember thy Creator in the days of thy Youth…”

I am sure you know that the opposite of Remember is to Forget.

So Remember means: “Don’t Forget”.

That’s why David wrote in Psalms 103:1-5 – Bless the Lord Oh my Soul and all that is within me bless his Holy Name, bless the Lord Oh my Soul and forget not all His benefits.

WHY MUST YOU REMEMBER GOD AND NOT FORGET?

Because when Jubilee comes, Blessings unimaginable always follow.

Mark my words – Your Success does not depend on the situation in your Nation.

It doesn’t matter what is happening in the Economy of your Country; when God decides to bless you; when He opens a door, Nobody can shut it.

There is someone listening to me now or reading now on the Label of DMC, the future seems to be very blick; Pay attention to the words of the Special Jubilee Convention Hymn that we have been Singing.

Right now, some of you might say, “There is no future.” Ha! Unless it is not God that sent me – When your Jubilee comes, there will be Success in every area of Life – Amen.

I can assure you, you will Testify – Amen.

But God said in Deuteronmy 8:11-20; He said, when you begin to Prosper, eat fruits that you didn’t even Plant, live in houses that you didn’t even build; He said, when everything begin to go well, don’t forget.

Don’t get to a Stage when you begin to say, “It is my Ability that got me this far; it is my Education and my connection that got me this far.”

He says, don’t forget that it is God who gives you Power to get Wealth. He said, because if you forget (This is my Translation) – “I will show you that the White man who made Pencil also made eraser”.

The Bible says clearly – God knows how to lift up; He knows how to bring down. He knows how to open and He knows how to shut. And when He shuts, no man can open.

… When God is on your Side, you just keep on Winning.

The Bible says you are More Than Conquuerors through him that loved us – Romans 8:37

One of my sons – A Vice Chancellor of a University; you need to watch him dance! When he is Praising God, He would dance like a baby.

Like I told you yesterday, one of the Signs of being a True Child of God is, if you can Praise Him.

And because this my son has God Supporting him, some Powerful men (in the University) said “we will remove him.”

The one who said “we will remove him” removed himself instead!

Anyone who wants to block your way will give you a “Beautiful Testimony” – Amen.

But God says, when you begin to Prosper, when your Jubilee begins to manifest; Remember now thy Creator. And forget not all His Benefits.

You see, because according to 1 Kings 11:1-4 – Solomon forgot! He remembered God at the beginning; but later on, money has come, fame has come, his Wisdom is talked about all over the world, People come from all over the world to learn at his feet.

And then he began to marry wives among the People that the Almighty God said, “don’t marry these People” – He married them!

And you know the result in 1 Kings 11:9-11, the Almighty God who loved him, turned round and began to hate him. He even told him, “I will take the Kingdom away from you.”

And at the end is his Life, in Ecclesiastes 1:1-2, he concluded his entire Life by saying “Vanity upon Vanity, all is Vanity.”

I Pray to the Almighty God that everyone of you my children, you will Remember God – Amen.

That brings me to one very important Issue:

… Don’t worry, I won’t take too much of your time because we want to Pray for some People tonight.

Man is created with the Ability to forget Good Things, and remember Evil Things – It’s in the nature of Man.

MAN IS CREATED WITH A HEART OF STONE:

That is what the Bible says in Jeremiah 17:9 – The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

The heart is not just wicked, it is desperately wicked!

The heart of the man is wicked in such a manner as if to say that, if he is not wicked, he will die.

That brings us to something that People don’t seem to teach anymore – Something called “Sanctification.”

Yesterday, I spoke about Salvation, I spoke about Reconcilation – If you are Backsliding you come back to Him.

DMC NOTES: You can get to read full Text of that Massage on the Label of DMC – Website or Social Media Handles!

After this Great Event that is knocking on my door, called Jubilee – How do I maintain a Good Relationship with the Almighty God for the rest of my Life?

You must be Sanctified! – Your Heart of Stone must be replaced with a Heart of flesh.

Ezekiel 36:24-27 tells us Step by Step:

1. God says He will Call you; He will wash you Clean – That’s Salvation.

2. Then He will remove that Heart of Stone from you and give you a Heart of flesh – That’s Sanctification.

3. Then He will Pour the Holy Spirit upon you – That’s Baptism in the Holy Spirit.

That is how we were brought up – Salvation, Sanctification and Baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Now, all we hear about is Salvation and the Baptism in the Holy Spirit – We jump Sanctification.

But you can’t jump Sanctification if we are to end well.

Oh, it is Possible to build a house like this Auditorium – Lay the Foundation (That’s Salvation). Then go straight to the roof. And ignore walls.

It has its Purpose!

God gave me the idea of a building like this because, “how are we going to Air-conditioned this kind of building for this kind of crowd?”

Now, everywhere is door and window!

Thank God for that Wisdom.

That is why, by the Grace of God, all these years we have never trampled on one another – Never!

And we will never do so because if you turn this way and the crowd is too much, then you can come this way – Everywhere is a door!

But you can’t be living here. If you want to live in here, it has to be a house – With walls, windows and doors you can lock.

If you say you are a Christian and you are not Sanctified, you are like a house without doors.

And according to the Elders: “That is easy access to Mad People.”

You must be Sanctified! – Meaning your Heart of Stone must be removed.

Because if you Prosper without Sanctification, Proverbs 1:32 says – The Prosperity of fools will destroy them.

Blessings can become a Curse if that Process called Sanctification – Changing your Heart of Stone to a Heart of flesh; if that Process is ignored, I fear for you.

Because Blessings are coming your way – Amen!

But I don’t want the Blessings to turn round to become a Curse.

In John 5:2-14, Jesus healed a man who had been sick for Thirty eight (38) years Free of Charge!

He did not even Pray for it. When his day came, he just had a Jubilee and his Health was fully restored. And he was about to have a Brand New Beginning.

But Jesus met him in the Temple and said: alright, Congratulations! You have got your Jubilee. Your Health has been Restored, you can have a New Beginning;

But go and sin no more! Or else something worse would come upon you.

I can tell you several Stories of those who had a Jubilee and lost it.

Somebody said, “It is better never to have owned a car than to own one and then end up catching a bus.”

Because if you have never owned a car, when you want to travel, what do you do? You will go to a Bus Stop. And many atimes you have to struggle to get into the bus, they trample on you – It is Normal.

But after you have owned a car and you have your own driver; if the tide turns and you have to go and catch a bus again….

That will never happen to you – Amen.

And then Somebody trampled on you at the Bus Stop and you say, why are you trampling on my foot? The Fellow will say, you are at the Bus stop men! What do you expect? You would say, it’s not your fault – When I used to sit in my car, this kind of thing didn’t happen.

That will never be your Story – Amen.

That is why we are going to Pray tonight – We are going to Call on God to Please, remove anything that can spoil our Jubilee.

And so one of the things (and this is very important) I hope you will hear – And I am about to close;

One of the things that lack of Sanctification does to you, that the heart of Stone does to you is that, you can’t Control your Temper.

I don’t know if you have noticed that Nobody teaches a child to be angry.

When you see a child get angry, you would wonder “where do you learn that from?” – The Heart of Stone!

So, if you are listening to me now or reading on the Label of DMC, and you say, “My only Problem is that when I get angry…” That’s enough Problem to destroy you!

When you become Sanctified and you get the Heart of flesh, that which is in you, that can turn your Blessings to a Curse, would be gone.

I would remind you of one Story – I have told you before. And those of you who have heard it before, it would be a Good Refreshment.

Those of you who have never heard of before, you would know why you must be Sanctified – Why your heart of Stone must be removed tonight.

I have told you the Story (True Story) of a man who bought a brand new car – Shinning and Beautiful. The son took a piece of nail and went to the car and began to scratch something on the car – Writing a Message with the nail.

The father came out, “Ha, my new car! You are scratching it? And he happened to be a man of temper.

And he looked for something to Punish the boy with. The only thing he could find handy was a hammer (True Sorry)!

… You know when you are angry, you are Temporarily Mad.

And he smashed the hammer on the hand of the boy.

When the boy screamed, that was when he suddenly realized, “what have I done?”

He picked the boy, rushed him to the Hospital. By the time the Doctor took a look at the hand, there was nothing they could do other than to cut off the fingers.

The following day, when he went to see the boy in the Hospital, the boy said “Daddy, when will my fingers grow again?”

He couldn’t answer!

In deep sorrow, he came back home – and went to the car, “what was it this boy scratched on the car?”

He read it – The boy wrote, “Daddy, I Love you!”

Daddy couldn’t bear the pain: he went inside and committed Suicide.

There is something that can turn a Blessing to a Curse – You can’t allow it to remain in you.

We can’t even be talking about Sanctification anyway, if you are not yet saved – You have to come to Jesus Christ first, let Him wash away your last sins. And give you a New Beginning.

ALTAR CALL;

So, maybe you were not here last night and you want to give your Life to Jesus Christ now, you want to surrender to Him – Salvation must start before you can even talk about Sanctification.

If you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, I am going to count one (1) to twelve (12) but you must come very quickly because we still have other things to do.

Come and surrender to Him – Let Him give you a Brand New Beginning; let Him wash away your Past sins, and lay the Foundation of a New Life for you.

The Choice is yours – If you want to continue in your sin, no Problem; you choose!

Thank you, those of you who are clapping: Your hand will never be empty – Amen!

In Jesus’ Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.

PRAYER FOR SALVATION

Saviour, I want to say Thank You! Thank You for Your Words; Thank You for all those who are surrendering their lives to you.

Father, Please fulfil Your Promise that, anyone who would come to You, You will no wise cast out


Father Please receive them, save their Souls, let Your Blood wash away their sins; give them a Brand New Beginning. Give them the Grace to serve You. Don’t let them ever backslide.

And from now on, anything they call on You, Please, answer them by Fire!

In Jesus’ Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen

Praise the Lord – Hallelujah!

Congratulations to those of you who have just Genuinely surrendered your Life to Jesus Christ. I rejoice with you.

And I am Promising you, that by the Grace of God I will be Praying for you.

So, I will need your Names, Address and Prayer Requests.

Now, the rest of us, I am going to ask you to Please, Stand on your feet and cry to God and say –

Father, Sanctify me wholly:

I. Anything that can destroy my Jubilee, Father Please, wipe away tonight.

II. Take away the Heart of stone and give me the Heart of flesh.

Thank You Father! Glory be to Your Holy Name! In Jesus’ Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.

I am about to Pray for you now; but after that, I believed that the Almighty God wants those who might be here who are barren, that we should lay hands on them.

So, after I have Prayed for you, if you are trusting God for the Fruit of the Womb, you will come forward and the Pastors will lay hands on you, before you leave.

And the rest of us, after I have Prayed for you, if you don’t want to leave, you can do so. But, you must leave the front of the Altar open.

CLOSING PRAYER:

My Father and my God, I want to Thank You for Your Words. You are the One Who said our Sanctification is Your Will. Please, do it for us tonight!

Any form of behaviour that we are still habouring, that can destroy our future, Father destory it today!

Whatever it is in our lives that the enemy can then Point to in the future and use against us; Father, destory it tonight.

Sanctify us Wholly!

My Father and my God, before we wake up tomorrow, let us realise that the Heart of stone is already gone!

Please, give us the Heart of flesh; give us the Heart that can do Your Will.

Thank You Almighty God! In Jesus’ Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!

Now, those of you who are trusting God for the Fruit of the Womb (not everyone) begin to move to the Altar.
