DAY 1: HOLY GHOST CONGRESS 2017
THEME: SONGS OF VICTORY
MINISTERING: PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE
TALK 2 TOPIC: VICTORY OVER SELF
PRAYER: Father, let me among the first ten people to receive Miracles during this Congress.
Let somebody shout Halleluyah. Shake hand with one person and say: This is own week of Victories.
I want to Welcome you all to this Special Congress. I am very sure that God will settled all our cases once and for all.
Tomorrow if the Lord tarries, it will be the day for Healing…so tell your friends. God will surprised us all in Jesus Name. There must not be reservation of seats as it is first come, first serve.
Today however, we will lay foundation for what God will do.
Tonight by the Special Grace of God, we want to talk about Victory over Self. This is the most crucial of all Victories as we will soon discover.
BIBLE TEXT: PROVERBS 16:32 – He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
There is a song that is one of the greatest Song of Victory back then in those days but I have not heard it often now:
I have decided to Follow Jesus (4ce)
No turning back (2ce).
You may want to ask me why that song is one of the greatest, it is because it is a song of commitment to Jesus Christ and so a Powerful song. This song is also linked to another song:
I am married to Jesus, Satan leave me alone (2ce)
My husband is coming to take me away
To everlasting Home.
You see, many has many enemies but the biggest three (3) are:
1. Death – In 1 Corinthians 15:26; the bible says that the last enemy to be destroyed is death. In fact death will wait till the last minute leaving no room for your escape. Hebrew 9:27 says it is appointed to a man to die once and after this is the judgement.
If Jesus Christ tarries: King, President, Pastors, General Overseers will all die because even as annointed as Elisha was, he still died.
Fortunately however Jesus Christ settled that in 1 Corinthians 15: 51-57. In V54 He said that death is swallowed up in Victory.
… Death is like our horse to ride to our Glorious Home.
2. Devil – In 1 Peter 5: 8-9; Paul says that the adversary is always everyday walking about and looking for who to destroy without getting tired.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, the devil will not find you and me because you and I are married to Jesus Christ.
The bible says that the eyes of the Lord run throughout earth to show Himself strong to those that feared Him.
… If you win the battle over yourself then the rest is History.
3. Yourself – The biggest enemy of all is Yourself. That is why those who are here tonight by tomorrow will sing SONGS OF VICTORY.
Romans 8:31 says if God be for us who can be against us?
Many of us normally jump up when we heard this and answer: Nobody. But when I look at that place in the bible, Nobody is written there but a question mark.
James 4:7 says if you submit yourself to God, then you can resist the devil and he will flee from you.
What about the demons, they are mere servants of the devil. In …
