MINISTERING: PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE
TOPIC: SONGS OF VICTORY
PRAYER: Father, please give me Total Victory tonight – Victory over Physical, Material, Mental, Marital and Spiritual issues and let me have Complete and Absolute Victory.
Let somebody shout Halleluyah!
1. By the Grace of God, by the 31st of December, 2017; there will be a Cross Over Night Service at the Camp and the theme is: ENFORCING YOUR VICTORY.
There will be the last Holy Communion Service for the Year 2017; followed by Service of Songs before going proper into the Watch Night Service proper.
2. The first Holy Ghost Service for Year 2018 will take place on the 5th of January, 2018 with the theme: STRONGER THAN YOUR ENEMIES.
You see all the things in a Strong man house is safe. But when a Stronger man comes to a Strong man house; he will overpowered him and takeaway his weapons while spoiling over his goods in the process.
To be a Strong man is good at least whatever you have can be kept but when you are stronger than your enemies, you not only retain what you have but you take over what your enemies have as well.
In the New Year that is coming: Power will Change Hands. That is, Power will be taken from your enemies and handed over to you. You don’t need to worry, since you are still alive till today, Daddy says he will see you in the New Year whether the devil likes it or not.
3. I wants to remind us of what I said during the Convention – whenever you are passing by and you see any thrash, make it a point of duty to pick it and throw it away approximately. And under no circumstances must you throw a thrash anyhow yourself.
This is however not for the purpose of camp alone but let let it be a part of you even at home. Cleaningliness is next to Godliness. We know true child of God by how clean they are…so let’s keep it going.
Everything in life has its place – no one park a car in the kitchen. Whenever things are not where it ought to then pick it up and put it in the proper place.
Let me use this opportunity to say Thank you to all those that had Ministered especially in Music…God bless you all.
Tonight is the Night of Victory for me. We will sing quite a lot of songs tonight because our topic says: SONGS OF VICTORY!
1. Victory, Victory Halleluyah, Halleluyah (2ce)
Jesus conquered the devil patapata
He has given me Victory
I will lift Him Higher
Jehovah, I will lift Him Higher.
2. I will sing unto the Lord a Joyful Song
I will praise His Name for the Lord is good
BIBLE TEXT: EXODUS 15: 1-3 (Infact read to Verse 11)
Verse 11 says: Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
Whenever we are talking about Songs of Victory, it comprises of two important words: Songs and Victory.
For Songs: When God created man, the original plan of God is for the man to be singing Praises to Him. As a matter of fact, everything that is created is to make music to God. Revelations 4:11 says He had created all things for His Pleasure. Birds are to sing, even trees are to clap their hands according to Isaiah 55:12 – For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you singing and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
One great Man of God taught concerning Genesis 1:31 that when God had created everything and He looked round and see no one to praise Him, He simply decided to praise Himself by saying: It is very good.
The Igbo’s have a proverb that when a red-headed lizard jumped from an iroko tree, it will nod his head three times and says that if no one praised me, I will praise myself.
God created us to Praise Him and that is why you will find out that man is a singing animal.
So by merely listening to the song of a man constantly, then you tell what such man is going through in his life.
If a man sings: We will overcome one day then such fellow has just lost a battle. If such fellow is in the midst of a tough battle, the song will change. He will sing: Let God arise and His enemy be scattered. You will know if a fellow is fighting with someone or has issues with the boss in the office when he begins to sing: In Jesus Name, every knees must bow. So if you as a boss your worker always singing that then you need to check yourself. However, when the fellow has just won a battle, he will sing: Now the battle is over. I am more than a Conqueror.
… In the Mighty Name of Jesus; I am more than a Conqueror will be the song you be singing home tomorrow morning.
Victory has been explained by those before me. It simply means to win or overcome a contest or war. The only thing, however, war like I told you last Month, there is no drawn game… Its either you win or lose. You are either a Victim or a Victor.
I have also once explained this to you that as a boxer if you find another champion that you know that you can defeat and avoiding you then you make him an offer that whatever money comes in…let the Winner take all. Wars generally are Winners take all contest. Goliath understood this; he says am a Philistine and you an Israelites… send me your Champion to fight with me. Whoever wins take overall charge.
As a child of God, you need to know that you have a determined enemy that wants to take all – steal, kill and destroy. But you are told according to John 10:10 by Jesus Christ that He has come for you to have life and have it abundantly.
You need to understand that your enemy the devil is well organized according to Ephesians 6:12. In his army, he has principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places.
But the Good News is that your ally is far much more Superior to him. In Psalm 24: 7-10; the bible calls Him the Lord of Host…the Commander-In-Chief of all the Host of Heaven, Earth and underneath the earth. Even the devil has to take permissions from Him on how far he can ho.
Daddy has a Good News for you that by the time you will be leaving here, your Victory would have been Settled. So Daddy won’t take too much time as our Victory is Guaranteed
The Following are the few Techniques of this Enemy:
1. When the devil wants to attach you the time he loves most is when you are celebrating. He knew at times like this, you are relaxed and prefers to spring surprise(s) at this time.
In 1 Samuel 18: 5-11; when David was returning from a conquest of Goliath and everyone celebrating. That was when the devil arranged some choirs to sing his praises…Saul killed in thousands and David kills in ten thousand. From that day henceforth, David was in trouble.
In Joshua 7; Joshua was busy rejoicing that they had conquered the fallen mighty city called Jericho. Unknown to him however was the fact that Achai has stolen something that had brought sin to the camp of Israel. The next attempt to take up a much smaller city called Ai met with defeat.
In 2 Kings 2: 9-24; Elisha requested for double portion of the anointing of Elijah. He got it, parted Jordan on his way back, the sons of the Prophet bowed down to him, used the anointing to destroy curse on Jericho. He was indeed glad that he has the power but immediately Satan arranged for some children to mock him.
The point Daddy is making is that whenever you are celebrating, you should keep on praying.
There is a song that says: Christian seek not yet repose. Hear thy Guidance Angel say? Thou art in the midst of foe…WATCH AND PRAY.
Thank God that you have an ally.
Tonight if there is anything that the enemy had planted in you; it will give way in Jesus Name.
2. When the devil wants to attack you directly, he does so massively and not bits by bits.
In Exodus 14: 5-28; the bible tells us that when Pharaoh was coming again after the children of Israel, he came massively with a mighty army. But thank God that our God was as massive as him and drown all of them massively.
In 2 Chronicles 20: 1-25; it took three combined kings to attacked Jehoshaphat even though one would have been big enough. But thank God that they all lost their life.
God made a promise in Isaiah 59:19…the bible says that when the enemy comes in like a flood then God will raise a standard against them.
The Lord says that there is someone here. The doctors said that your system dying steadily. God says that He has turned around the report of the devil.
Daddy says he does not know who God is talking to but no matter how many sickness and diseases you are currently having; in Jesus Name not a single one will follow you out of here.
3. At times the devil does not attack directly but he will attack in a softly way.
Ephesians 6:11 says put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Sometimes, the devil will attack in a way that it will be difficult to know how to fight back. It may come in form of cancer – while doctors curing cancer they are killing something else.
Thank God for the Testimony we heard tonight…stage 4 cancer is not a child’s play. On Tuesday (Day 2) during this Congress; God told us He is a Healer and not a doctor. Doctors are like mechanics but God is a Manufacturer (he can give you new parts for any faulty parts).
When the devil discovered that he sent a lion to David and he kills it; send bear and he kills it; send Goliath and he cuts off his head. He decided that if I cannot get him directly, he will use wisdom to raise an enemy that is his father-in-law.
How do you fight your father-in-law?
Not only is he his father-in-law but an anointed man of God. In 1 Samuel 24: 1-6; David had an opportunity to kill Saul and those around him advised him to ceased the opportunity but he made them realized why he cannot. He merely cut a piece of his cloth and for doing that had a headache.
What will you do if the devil is using your Pastor, the very one that brought you to Christ against you? How do you fight such a battle?
1 Samuel 25: 1-11 tells us what to do. David said I won’t raised my hand against him or else God will deal with him.
I have a Good News for someone; if you are attacked by someone that you cannot fight just leave the battle for God as God will fight the battle for you.
Any relative blocking your way if they don’t repent they won’t see the New Year. Anyone close to you who is the one blocking your way to your destiny the Lord of Host will deal with such.
I. The Lord asked Daddy to tell someone that you should relax: I have already know what to do.
II. Jesus suspended the Law of Gravity to walk on water and restored it afterwards after solving the problem.
The Lord says that for someone here every law that must be suspended for you to received your breakthrough will be suspended.
III. The Lord says that there is a family here that everything is in chaos for now. Beginning from tomorrow morning everything will return to normal.
IV. The Lord asked Daddy to tell someone: Leave them for me as I will deal with all of your false accusers.
4. When the devil wants to fight you, at times he may use a combination of forces – Internal and External enemies.
In Mathew 10:36 says: And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
When you read Judges 15: 1-19; it was the enemies within the Samson family (about 3,000 of them) who went ahead to bind him and handed him over to the enemies.
The elder has a saying that if the enemies within do not kill you then the enemies outside cannot kill you.
But thank God that there is an anointing that destroyed yokes, cause Internal enemies dissolved and destroyed External enemies.
I don’t know why God is leading us in this direction tonight. Many are living with family enemies too long. And for our Victory to be Complete, God has to deal with them.
Every family members that are expecting you to die; from now on…they will be frustrated. Every External enemy if they don’t repent will die.
I. The Lord says that there is someone here tonight that the time to fulfil all my previous promises to you is NOW.
II. The Lord says that as you enter into the New Year, you will steadily climb the HILL OF JOY!
III. The Almighty God says that your GREATNESS IS ABOUT TO BEGIN.
5. Another device of the devil is that if he tries to attack you and he fails (come in form of cancer) and in form of combined forces of internal and external enemies failed then he will try to make God Himself be against you.
… And what will you do if your only ally has now become your enemy?
In Numbers 23: 1-23; a king hired a Prophet to come and pronounced curses on the Nation of Israel. Each time the Prophet opened his mouth instead of curses, blessings kept coming from it. The king was angry but the Prophet gave the king the reason why it was so – that God has not found any iniquity among them and that as at that level no curse or enchantment or divination can work against them because they are Holy. Then the devil had to re-strategise that he will encourage them to sin.
Thank God for the message of Dr Mensa Otabil on Day 4 about Grace because some are of the school of thought that sin allows you to sin anyhow.
The king invited them to a party and enticed with their indecently dressed girls. They fell for it, start fornicating with the girls and that was it. The same Almighty God who had hitherto defended them in Numbers 25: 1-9 send a plague to among them that killed 24,000 of them just in a day.
If God be for you, no one can be against you except you yourself.
If God then be against you…who will help you?
One of our Prayers tonight is that: God doesn’t let me be your enemy.
This is the main reason Daddy kept on crying day and night that you should be HOLY.
If we have God on our side, there is nothing to fear but if not…then there is a Big Problem.
6. There is something however called the FINAL VICTORY.
The Bible tells us that the last enemy to be destroyed is death. Your Victory is not Complete until you made it eventually to Heaven.
Paul said in 2 Timothy 4: 7-8 that he has finished well, fought a good fight, finished his course and kept faith.
Revelations 15: 2-3 talks about the assembly of Overcomers standing before the throne of God. It says some sang songs of Moses (text) while others song of the lamp.
Our Victory is only Total and Absolute when we make it to Heaven. This is the most important of all.
Daddy prayers for us all is that: No matter what, may you Finished Well.
… If you do this then you will be the UNDEFEATED CHAMPION.
In some moment, we will pray. But thank God for the revelations of Rev Joe Olaiya and those that gave their lives to God. But Daddy observed some of us came later or some struggled not to come out then.
The issues of Heaven is too important to be ignored. Please hearken to the voice of Jesus Christ now and come to the front. If you want to give your life, then don’t allow the distance rob you of your connection with God. Please come now as I will count from 1 to 10.
The altar will be opened up for you for just 10 minutes so that you can come and talk to God. You may pray more on any of the points that interest you more.
1. Just Praise God that you are still alive. It simply means that the devil has lost the battle.
2. Father, all the enemies within please deal with them yourself in your own way.
3. Father, as for the external enemies… those who won’t repent among them; arise and scatter them.
4. Father, make your Wall of Fire round me and all that is mine to remain solid.
5. Father, please don’t let me be my own enemy.
6. Father, let me enjoy peace from now on even in the presence of my enemies.
7. Father, please let me Finished Well.
8. If there is any Personal Battle then tell it to God too.
Join your hands with your neighbour and prayed thus: Father, this your child that am holding give him/her Victory… also Complete and Total Victory all the way as you are giving me Victory too.
Yesterday, you were asked to bring 3 handkerchiefs or use one and go cut it into 3 at home.
We are about to do something tonight. Have you observed all the Testimonies so far and this should convince you that God backing us. It may sound foolish or childish but God has chosen the childish to confound the wise. Our foolishness is deeply rooted in God’s Wisdom.
Tonight we will pray three (3) prayers that have to do with our handkerchiefs.
1. When there is war and one side wants to surrender it will lift up a white flag that says am not fighting again.
Daddy lifts up 1st handkerchief and you lift yours too. Then you pray: Father I surrendered to you together with all that belongs to me for your safe keeping – my present, future, ambitions, family and RCCG.
2. Daddy increase by adding another flag to make two flags – this depicts that you are a Winner. While you raise your 2nd handkerchief too. Then you pray: Father, I receive my Victory and I want the world to know that I am Victorious…totally and completely.
3. Now Daddy added the 3rd flag to it to make it 3 flags – This depicts that I am More than Conqueror. While you added your own 3rd handkerchief too to it and pray: Father am more than a conqueror and I serve you devil notice.
NOTE: Listen carefully,
1. If you have a Minor Problem, just wave one of the handkerchiefs.
2. If you have a Big Problem, wave two of the handkerchiefs.
3. If you are faced with a Problem that seemed completely unsolvable … as God lives wave the three handkerchiefs and you will discover that you are more than Conqueror.
