Father, in this month of grace, be gracious to us all. Be gracious to the sick and heal them. Be gracious to the captive and set them free. Be gracious to the poor, and cause them to prosper.


Be gracious to the sorrowful and wipe away all their tears. Be gracious to the barren and make them fruitful. Be gracious to the jobless and give them a breakthrough. Be gracious to the stagnant and accelerate their promotion. Every one of us here tonight, we are crying to You Lord, be gracious to the sinners and save their souls.

By the time we live here in the morning, Father, grant us the grace to sing a new a song. And all those who are listening to You all over the world, wherever they may be: from Australia to  Papua New Guinea, everywhere in the Mid-belt, in the Mid-east, Father, be gracious unto us all; grant all our request and just let all be well.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.


Amen.


Let someone shout hallelujah.

 

Before you seat down, put your hands together for the Almighty God.

 

Common! If you are clapping for Jesus… clap, clap… that is the way it should be.

 

Amen!

 

Now, shake hands with two or three people and tell them: God will show you favour tonight.


And then you may please be seated.

 

God bless you.

 

 

Tonight, before we go to the word of God, we are about to do something special.

 

The Bible says the weapons of our warfare are not carnal.


Our own weapons are not guns; our weapons are not cutlasses or swords; our weapons are not carnal; but according to the word of God that is forever settled, they are mighty to the pulling down of strong holes.

We want to use that weapon of prayer tonight before we go any further.


Let me ask you a question.


How many of you are fed up with the shedding of innocent bloods all across the nation?


If you are fed up, say Amen.


How many of you are absolutely fed up with kidnappings?

If you are totally fed up, let me hear you say Amen.


So, I am going to ask you to join me in prayer – I want you to pray with anger; pray with violence; pray like you have never prayed before.


You see! The word of says: whatsoever we bound on earth is bound in heaven; whatever we lose on earth, is lose in heaven.


Bible scholars said what that actually meant is: whatever we allow on earth, we be allowed in heaven. Whatever we disallow on earth, we be disallowed in heaven.


I want you to join me to say: no more kidnapping and no more shedding of innocent blood.


And so, we are going to pray the prayer in a violence manner.

Stand on your feet please.


The first prayer you are going to pray; you will lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, anyone planning to shed innocent blood right now as we speak, send down Your fire and consume such people.


Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.


From now on, anyone planning to shed innocent blood all over this nation; wherever they may be right now as we pray, send down Your fire; let Your fire consume them.


Our own weapon is prayer; Lord God Almighty, anyone planning to shed innocent blood from now on, send down Your fire O Lord; send down the fire from heaven: You are the Consuming fire; send down Your fire, let the fire consume anyone wherever they may be planning to shed innocent blood. Lord God Almighty send down Your fire from heaven, let the fire consume them.


 Thank You Father. Please Lord. (Speaking in the Holy Spirit). Send down Your fire O Lord. Consume anyone planning to shed innocent blood from now on Lord, all over this nation. Anyone planning to shed innocent blood, set on fire Lord, set on fire Almighty God set on fire. (**Speaking in the Holy Spirit**).


 Thank You Father.


In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.


You will pray another prayer and say: Father, anyone who has kidnapped or he is planning to kidnap, right now as we pray, set him on fire.


Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.


Right now Lord, anyone who has kidnapped or he is planning to kidnap, wherever that fellow may be Lord, set him or her on fire – just set him or her on fire. Anyone planning to kidnap or has kidnapped, wherever he or she may be, set him or her on fire O Lord. Enough is enough; enough is enough Daddy, set down fire from Your throne.


In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.


My Father and my God, we are Your children, we have no other help but You, and we are saying tonight Lord, we are in one accord as we say: no more killing of innocent people.


 Father, we say, no more kidnapping. Father, Your children are in one accord and say: please, fight for us. Many of these perpetrator of evil, we don’t even know where they are but You can see them, You know there location, set them on fire so that they will repent; so that they will be saved; from now on don’t let them know any rest.


And Father, we thank You for warning us in advance that things we get worse before they get better; but we Your children are saying: Daddy, enough is enough; from now on let things get better. We are crying to You by faith tonight to say in this nation there will no longer be fuel scarcity.


 No more hunger; no more pain; no more tragedies. We say Lord, beginning from now, let things get better; let them get better speedily; let them get better continuously; help us O Lord take all the glory.


In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.


Amen.


If you believe God have heard you, shout a big hallelujah.

Okay!


2Corithian chapter 9 verse 8.


We want to talk about Victorious Grace.


I don’t need to begin to divine what is victory – you all know what it means.


And I am sure you know what grace is.


Grace is favour from God that you did not even deserve.


When God gives you a miracle you don’t deserve, we call it grace.

And 2Corithians chapter 9 verse 8: “And God is able to make all grace abound towards you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work”


Beginning from now, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, you will never lack again. You will never lack health; you will never lack joy; you will never lack peace. You will never lack any good thing.

Life is war.


From the moment you are conceived, to the moment you died – is one continuous war.


If you don’t believe me, ask your mum; she will tell you…


One of the ways they know in those days that a woman is pregnant is that: she began to have morning sickness.


Yeah! Something good had happen in the belly, nobody knows but the woman knows – morning sickness.


Then, very soon the baby inside begin to kick; at a stage, she cannot even lie on her side. And then if you know what she go through before she can push you out – you will know life is war.

That is why, when you land here in this world, the first thing you do is cry not laugh.


  You will begin to say: hey! I have come (laugh) to take share of my own fight.


And for the Christian in particular, life is intense war.


Because you used to be a slave of Satan and now you are born again, you have escaped.


And the elders will tell you, it is good for the slave to escape and is proper for the owner to purse.


That is while 2Timothy chapter 2 verse 4 says that a Christian is chosen to be a soldier; you are not chosen to be a civilian.


And as I have told you again and again: the Lord Jesus Christ is not civilian, He is a soldier.


The Bible calls Him the Lord – the Lord strong and mighty; the Lord mighty in battle;  not mighty in dancing; mighty in battle.


That is while the Bible says in Ephesians chapter 6 verse 11 says: you are to put on the whole armor of God.


You don’t wear armor to the dance floor; you wear armor to the battle front.


Why?


Because 1Peter chapter 5 verses 8 and 9 says: you have an adversary, the devil; like a roaring lion, steadily walking about seeking for whom he may defile.


Every day the devil is after you.


And the Bible did not say you are to fold your hands and say devil leave me alone…


There is only one language the devil understands, that is the language of violence.


So, the Bible says you are to resist Him steadfastly.


In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, beginning from tonight, none of you will ever be defeated again.


But you need grace to win.


So, tonight, as usual I am going to be calling on you from time to time to pray.


If you like pray like a lady and gentle man. But if you will take my advice, pray like warriors.


May be I should ask a question.


How many of you are tired of suffering anyway?


You need grace to win.


Let us take these battles/wars, maybe under five headings only. There are other headings, but I have another meeting after the Holy Ghost service; so, I will try and be brief tonight.


Let us take the Physical Aspect of life – I am just talking about your body.


When you are sick, it means there is a war going on in your body. That is while when you have fever your temperature rises. It is because certain fighting is going on in your body.


Ask the Medical Doctors, they will tell you there are soldiers in your body…; they have their name for them. But they are put there to defend your body against outside attack.


 They are there!


That is while whenever they discover something is wrong, they begin to fight; in the process they begin to generate heat, so your temperature rises.


That is while when you suffer a cut, immediately blood will rush there and rush there to prevent invaders from coming in, and as soon as they get there the blood begins to clot, begin to form a shed to  prevent an attacker for coming in from outside.


If you don’t believe that sickness is war, ask Neman, the leper – he is an example.


He had everything but the Bible says: he was a leper. And that single but destroy everything.


And of course you know what leprosy does?


If you have ever seen a leper before you will understand.


The sickness kills a little bit at a time: one finger will drop off; one toe; and later on a little bit of the hair; a little bit of the nose; which tells you the way the devil operates…; He steals, then he kills, then he destroys.


Or consider the woman with the issue of blood: when what was supposed to last for a couple of days every month, now became a continuous flow.


And she was getting weaker by the day and getting poorer by the day.


Or Luke chapter 13 verse 10 to 17 tells you of a woman that the Bible says, Satan bound: she just bent double; no matter how hard she try, she could not lift herself up because there are invisible forces binding her.


But then, the God of grace has grace to give victory in physical battles.


Luke chapter 4 verse 27 says: there were many Lepers in the land but the grace of God chose one leper and said in your own case I will give you victory.


Every one of you today, fighting some wars in your body, you will receive grace.


In John chapter 5 verse 2 to 9; you know the story very well, we always referring to it; it tells about the multitude at the pool of Bethesda – multitude! – Sick people, lame people, they were there waiting for the turning of the water by an Angel; because the first fellow to jump him after the angel as come will be made whole.


Then the Lord of grace paid that place a visit and out of the multitude, He chose only one fellow for healing.


And I don’t know who He is going to choose tonight but I know the God of grace is going to choose someone for physical victory tonight.

The fellow had been there for thirty eight years; God of grace healed that single fellow who did not even pray for it.


He was just lying down waiting for the Angel, when the Creator of Angels came and set him free.


I have told you the story before of a woman who was sick at Luth here in Lagos.


Her case had degenerated to the level that no way she could live – no way


So, the husband came on a visit one night; and the Nurses and Doctor told him there is no way that your wife can still be alive by tomorrow morning – no way


All sign show clearly she cannot last a night.


So, the husband pretended to be in love: ‘hello my dear, I will see you tomorrow’; and then he left.


As soon as he left, he phoned his concubine and said come, come over that stupid fellow is not going to be around by tomorrow morning; and so, they were having fun.


Everybody gone to sleep, when all of a sudden someone appeared to that lady and said that I AM the LORD that healeth thee and lifted her up from the bed; and she was completely whole.


When the Nurses saw her they thought that she had died that it is the ghost that had come; so, she discharge herself and came home.

And because the husband was not expecting her, he did not even closed the door and she just walked in and saw the man with the concubine.


There is still a God in heaven who can step in when the world has forsaken you.


Stand on your feet this evening; lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, in this great assembly, let Your grace bring me total wholeness tonight.


Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.


I know we have many people here Lord, I know this is a great assembly but let Your grace bring me complete wholeness. Let Your grace bring me total wholeness tonight.


 I know You can single me out for complete healing tonight – please do it. Do it. I want victory over sickness, over disease, over germs and virus in my body; in this great assembly Lord, let Your grace single me out for complete wholeness.


 Let Your grace single me out for complete wholeness tonight; I want to be made whole: body, soul, spirit. I want every ache, every pain, every sickness, every disease to be gone from my body. I know we are many, but You are the God of grace, give me victorious grace tonight.


 Victory over sickness, victory over disease, victory over ache, victory over pain, do whatever You have to do to make me whole again, do whatever You alone can do to make me completely whole again.


 Do it O Lord. Make me absolutely whole again – whole: body, soul, spirit; from the top of my head to the sole of my feet to the tips of my fingers, Lord God Almighty and the tips of my toe, make me whole Lord.


 Make me absolutely whole tonight. By Your grace give me a total healing tonight, I know You can do it. I know You can repair what is damage in my body.


 I know You can do it and I know what cannot be repair You can replace; Lord, give me total wholeness tonight by Your grace, by Your grace, by Your grace. Give me a total wholeness tonight by Your grace. 


Thank You Father. (Speaking in the Spirit). Make me whole Lord. Make me absolutely whole Lord. Even sick and diseases that are already in my body that I don’t know, flush it out, flush it out, make me whole tonight.


 Make me whole tonight. You are my Doctor, You are my Physician, You are my Creator, You are the One who can do what no Doctors can do, please Lord, make me whole tonight, let me find grace with You for complete wholeness tonight not tomorrow.


 Any ache, every pain, everything that might be wrong with my system that the Doctor may say this is due to old age, this is due to that, Lord put everything right. You said will renew my age like the eagles, do it tonight Lord, do it tonight. 


Take the glory for it Father. Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus mighty name.


God bless you. You may be seated.


And then, let us look at this warfare from the Material Perspective.

Any sensible fellow will tell you that ‘Business is warfare’ – real warfare.


You have something to sell; hundreds of others also have the same thing to sell and you have the same market; so, it becomes a matter of survival.


Business is warfare particularly for the Christian: the moment you become a Christian… oh, oh…


You see the devil does not care if a sinner gets rich that does not border him.


Why?


Mark chapter 8 verse 36 says: what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul’.


As long as the devil knows that your soul belongs to him, then, you can go ahead and prosper. He knows then that you are nothing other than a ram for the slaughter.


I wrote a trait “a ram for the slaughter” way back in 1970-something; and I describe what happens from my observation during the Ileya festival.


You will see a ram has been bought for the celebration and they keep on feeding this animal; the children will begin to watch his body; play with; and the ram is looking at himself, saying: hey! Look at how popular I am; not knowing that he is being prepared for the slaughter.


And that is the way it is for the sinner who is prospering.

Devil will say go on! go on! Get fatter! Prosper more! So that you can burn better when you get to hell!


But the moment you give your life to Jesus Christ, the moment you become committed to Christ, the devil says: oh oh! If this fellow prospers, the kingdom of God will expand.


And I told those who came for divine encounter on Monday; and it will be a good idea if you get that tape; the devil knows the Bible very well.


He knows that it is written in Zachariah chapter 1 verse 17: the Almighty God says through prosperity, My city shall yet be built throughout the whole world.


In order words, when My children prosper, they will begin to build My kingdom.


Let me ask you a question

If God gives you the money, how many of you will like to build a church single handedly for God?


Let me hear you say amen.


Everyone!


If God gives you the means, I know, I know many of you will love to spread the gospel by using your resources and the devil knows it too.

I won’t mention the state, but several years ago, the first time I decided to go on television, they told me that before I went to the television station, they won’t allow you to preach Christ on television in this particular state.


I won’t mention the name of the state, but I was working in that state as at that time.


I said that will be against the Law of the Land, you cannot deny me.

So, I went there and since they knew I was a lecturer in the University that I might be able to cause some trouble, they decided to use wisdom and they charge me an amount so high that they thought I would say I cannot pay,


They said well, for thirty minutes you will pay so so much, I said I will pay. I said I will pay.


So I began to preach.


I guess some people in high places saw what was happening and they challenge the man in charge of the station…


Why did you allow this?


So, after one month, he called me and said, we are reviewing our price and they doubled the price, I said I will pay.


A month later…, I am telling you through story that happen; witness is seating on the altar here.


A month later, they tripled the price, I say, I will pay.


I decree tonight, the money you need to do the work of God you will never lack it.


And at that time, things got so though, by the time I pay for this thing there is hardly any money left in the house to eat. But then God began to send helpers.


That is why those of you who are my partners, God will keep on sending helpers to you.


So, the devil knows that if you prosper that the work of God will be done; that the gospel will be spread all over the world.


So, he knows that if he tries to fight you directly on your finances, he knows God will rise up to defend you – he knows that, he is not a fool.


Call the devil any name, but don’t call him a fool because He is not a fool.


So, what does he do, he turns you against God. He causes you to do things that would then cause God to be the one who will be fighting you – and I am talking of financially.


It is there in the Bible, if you read Malachi chapter 3 verse 8 to 11 very well and the devil knows it.


Malachi 3: 8 to 11: God says, if you rob Him of your tithe and offering, He will put you under a curse – the devil knows that.

God went further to say, the moment you repent and you begin to pay your tithe and you give your offering, He will rebuke devourers for your sake – it is there in the Bible.


God says when you are robbing Him, He sent an army against you – an Army of devourers.


The devil will just stand by and be laughing as the Army of devourers begins to come.


But God says, the moment you repent and you begin to do what He asked you to do, He said, I will withdraw the devourers, I will take them away – He said so; it is there. I did not write the Bible.


I have told the story before of a friend of mine, I am sure he is listening now, a Lawyer, very successful Lawyer, he became born again and we are talking, we are discussing the issue of tithes and because he is a Lawyer, he is far far clever than myself – he know how to argue.


No, you don’t have to pay tithe. No! that is old testament. No! no!

At that time I was not a full time Pastor.


I said sir, I am not saying this thing because I need your money, you know I am a lecturer in the University; I am well fed, but…

So, finally, we reach an agreement: why don’t we let God settle this matter.


Haa! He said that is good – let Him settle the matter.


And when God set into a situation, you know God can move fast.

He lost one case; then, he lost the second; then, he lost the third – three cases in one week.


And ask any Lawyer that is not good for your reputation.


And then, he had a bakery where he produced bread in those days for the town; and the time we had our discussion was close to Christmas which is the top time for sale.


Few days before Christmas, all his bakers came to him together as one and say: sir, we are resigning.


Haa!

He said, please, if you want me to increase…, I mean this is moment we make our money, if you want me to increase your pay; they said no, it does not matter what increment; we are going.


Okay!


You are going to celebrate Christmas at home, will you come…, they said no, we are not coming back.


So, throughout the period of festivities, his own bakery was closed down.


And then, I went home for New Year and we met; and he said, God has proved Himself.


I was struggling giving Him tenth percent; now, I have zero.

I said ‘you repent?’


I repent.
