Topic: Lockdown To Leaping Up 4
Bible Text: Acts 3:1-8
Song: Worthy, worthy is the Lamb...
That was slain.

How high can I leap?
How high can I expect to go?
How high one can leap depends on how tall he is. Genesis 41:38-44
How high can God lift you?
How tall is God! Isaiah 66:1
God’s legs are extremely long, from Heaven all the way to the earth.
God’s hands are everlasting. Deuteronomy 33:37
When God lifts you, He can lift you everlasting. 1 Samuel 2:7-8, 1 Samuel 16:1-13
In David’s case, God picked him up, he woke up in the morning a shepherd boy and ended up been a king. Mark 10:46-52
Joshua 1:1-8, Joshua was a minister of Moses. Go lifted him up and turned him to a Head of state.
1 Kings 19:19-21, 2 Kings 13:14-21
God lifted Elisha up. Luke 5:1-11
Ask Peter. Peter was a total failure.
In Acts 5:12-16, people welcomed him greatly.
Exodus 3:1-16
Moses. He was retired, an old man. God picked him up from the wilderness and turned him to a way maker. Exodus 15:15-28. Mark 5:2-20
God picked him up, he became an evangelist.
When God picks up the comfortable, He can lift him up to the level of the rich.
Genesis 33:1-9
2 Chronicles 1:6-12
God can move one from wealthy to prosperous. Psalms 92:12-14
God can move you from being prosperous to someone who is flourishing. It does not matter how great you are, God can make you much greater. God can lift you up within 24 hours.
Genesis 41:1-44

What are the requirements that will make God lift you up?
1. Faith in God. Mark 9:23
2. Diligence. Proverbs 22:29, 2 Kings 4:1-7
3. Holiness. Isaiah 59:1-2
There is no limit to how high God can take you. But you have to be holy.
The only thing that can destroy your lifting up faster than anything else is sin.
Give your life to Jesus Christ, He will give you a brand new beginning of leaping.

Bible Text: Acts 3:1-3
Theme: Lockdown To Leaping Up 3
Song: You are worthy to be praised,
You are worthy to be praised,
My Redeemer, 
You are worthy to be praised

Peter said to the beggar  “look on us”
Acts 3:4 “Look on us” means look up, lift up your eyes.
When you look up, you will link up with the Almighty God. John 12:32, Ephesians 1:18-23 
Psalm 75:6-7; If you lift up your eyes, He will promote you. 1 Samuel 2:8
When He lifts you, He can make sure your promotion is permanent. Deuteronomy 28:13
His arms are everlasting arms and can keep promoting you forever. Psalm 121:1-2
Lift up your eyes, help is coming from above.
Psalm 123:1-2 Look up, mercy is coming from above. Lamentations 3:22-23
It is His mercy that can help you reach great heights. Mark 9:17-27, No matter the height you wish to attain, you can reach it with God's help if you only you can believe. Ephesians 2:4-6 God is rich in mercy and therefore raises us up with Jesus Christ. If you get linked up with Jesus by looking up to Him, you get linked up with the greatest power. Mark 10:27
He is so powerful He can resurrect your dead dreams. Ezekiel 37:1-10, Moses looked up and linked up with God at the age of 80 and his dreams came to pass. When you look up to Him, you get linked up with the One who is unlimited in generosity. Psalm 78:41
2 Kings 4:1-7. Don't limit God, dream big!
David not only became a king, he provided the thousands of silver and millions of  gold needed to build the Temple. 1 Chronicles 22:14
Ephesians 3:20 No matter how big you wish to become, it is small in God's eyes. 2 Kings 2:9-15 It can be hard for man, but it is a small thing to God. Linking up with Him when you lift up your eyes means taking on His yoke.
Matthew 11:28-30. You must come under the management of the Almighty God if you wish to be great. If you're not yet born again, God is willing to save your soul if you're willing to come under His management. Ask the Lord to save your soul and receive you into His family. 
Ask that He give you a new beginning and wipe away all your sins. Spend quality time with God, asking Him to link you up and lift you up.

Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon at June 2020 Father's Day Sunday Service

Minister: Pastor E. A. Adeboye
Text: Acts 3:1-8
Topic: Lockdown to Leaping Pt. 2
A Leap is a sudden upward move. It can be caused by a push. For example, if you sit on a heater by accident, you leap up. 2 Kings 4:1-7. The widow of Zarephath leapt to the prophet for help. 
A Leap can also be a violent push upward by a strong hand. Joshua 1:1-8.  
The Lord lifted Peter out of the sea when he started sinking. Help lifted him out of the waves. Matthew 14:23-32. 
The lame man experienced an upward lift by someone holding him up. Acts 3:7. 

Most of the time, leaping up begins with standing up. Psalm 40:1-3. 
When the Almighty God is pulling you up, you start by standing. John 5:2-9

Then you begin to walk; which means making progress steadily. Genesis 26:12-14. Isaac made progress steadily. 
After David leapt up, he began to walk. 1 Samuel 16:11-13. He experienced a violent pull upward and then began to move forward steadily. 2 Samuel 2:1-4, 5:1-5. 

The next level is walking and leaping at the same time.
If the Almighty God is involved in your leaping up, you begin to walk in another dimension of leaping. 
Solomon found himself enthroned. 1 Kings 1:5-53. After God lifted him up, Solomon became wealthy and gave God 1000 burnt offerings. 2 Chronicles 1:6-15. Gold & silver became like ordinary stones in his reign. In 2 Chronicles 7:5, he offered 22,000 burnt offerings and 120,000 sheep. God didn't ask Him what He wanted anymore, He simply granted unto him his desires. 2 Chronicles 7:11-18. 

After continually leaping, constant praise is the next level, as the lame man healed at the Beautiful Gate did. Psalm 34:1-3. If God sees your willingness to praise Him despite the lockdown, He will break all rules to lift you up. Mark 1:40-45. 
God is able to turn your mourning to dancing provided you'll praise Him. He is able to turn your lockdown to Leaping Up, provided you'll spend the rest of your life praising Him. Psalm 30:11-12.

The Almighty God is willing to pick you up, as long as you're willing to lift your hands in surrender. If you'd like to surrender your life to God, lift your hands to Him and cry out to Him.

Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon June 2020 Special Sunday Service

June 2020 Special Sunday Service 
Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye 
Theme: From Lockdown to Leaping Up 1
Bible Text: Acts 3:1-8
Song: Worthy worthy is the Lamb
Worthy worthy is the Lamb
That was slain
Jesus Jesus is the Lamb
Jesus Jesus is the Lamb
Jesus Jesus is the Lamb
Glory Hallelujah 
Glory Hallelujah 
Glory Hallelujah 
Praise the Lord
My prayer for everyone of you listening is that you will move from lockdown to leaping up in Jesus' name.
Man's hunger for freedom is so intense that every opportunity to be free, he grabs it.
Mark 5:2-4
There is something worse than physical lockdown. He was strong physically. Genesis 2:7-15
He was also strong intellectually. Genesis 2:19-20
But when he sinned, he was locked down mentally. I want to talk to you on mental lockdown. 

How to recognize mental lockdown: 
1. The fellow will begin to regard what is far from best as the best that could happen to him. Acts 3:2-3 
Beware of your mental enemies. There are certain enemies that can lock you down mentally.
Enemy one:
Being clever; settling for average 2 Chronicles 1:6-12
A teacher of mine used to say: 
He who does not know but knows that he does not know will soon be a wise man.
He who does not know and does not that he does not know will die a fool. 
Enemy Two:
Good enough; which is the biggest enemy of greatness 1 Kings 19:19-21
Elisha had it good enough; the heir to his father's wealth.
If he had settled for that, he wouldn't have been the great prophet that he became. 2 Kings 13:14-21
Don't let good enough rob you of greatness. 
The greatest enemy of all is thinking you are great. You can be great but incomplete and think that's all to it. 2Kings 4:8-17
From Lockdown to Leaping Up: 
1. You sense what you are calling normal is not good enough. Luke 11:1
2. You begin to feel that things can be much better. Mark 8:22-24
When you begin to talk of good old days, you need to leap up.
You should be talking of better new days.
3. When you realize that God reserves the best for the last. John 2:1-11, Genesis 24:34-35, 26:12-14
Genesis 30:27-43
Abraham was great
Isaac was very great
Jacob was exceedingly great
Joseph was even greater than all of them.
Don't get mentally locked down.
The first time they told me we had arrived was when we had our first auditorium.
Now we've expanded severally because I refused to be locked down.
The journey to the top starts on your knees.
For those who are not born again, this means kneeling down at the foot of the cross and crying for the salvation of your soul.

Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon at June 2020 Thanksgiving Service

June 2020 Thanksgiving Service 
Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye 
Theme: Flying Over Mountains 
Bible Text: Isaiah 40:28-31
Song: We give You all the glory
We give You honour
We give You all the glory 
We give You honour

Our Bible text tells us to wait on the Lord if we want to fly over mountains.
The one who waits is called a waiter. 
The job of the waiter is to:
1. Sit the guest
2. Bring you a drink as you look over the menu
3. Provide you good food
4. Stand by to wait on you until you're satisfied.
Your duty is to wait on God. God is your guest and you're the waiter.

How do you get Him to sit?
1. Worship Him and invite Him to sit. Psalm 132:7-8
2. Next thing is to give Him water to drink. John 19:28
3. Present God with the food of His choice. John 4:23-24 
4. Treat Him with honour. Psalm 50:23
5. Make sure He is fully satisfied. Revelation 4:8-11
Genesis 18:1-14
Abraham fed the Divine guests and waited on them.
Waiting on the Lord requires you to worship and praise Him.
Waiting on Him does not mean bombarding Him with requests.
When a waiter has satisfied a customer,  the customer won't leave without giving a tip.
The greater the customer the greater the tip.
A tip from the Most High who owns the gold and silver means you will fly over several mountains:
1. Fly over the mountain of failure. Luke 5:1-11
2. Fly over the mountain of poverty. 
3. Fly over the mountain of barrenness. 2 Kings 4:8-17
4. Fly over the mountain of physical lockdown. Acts 16:16-34
For some people, the lockdown will be over sooner than later.
If you learn to worship God, you will see the lockdown becoming an asset rather than a problem. 
5. Fly over spiritual lockdown. Mark 5:2-20
Are you in bondage? Do you have a problem that cannot be explained? If you wait on the Lord correctly by worshipping, you will fly over that mountain.
6. You can fly over the mountain of death. 2 Kings 2:9-11
When the Lord shall return, those of us still alive will fly over the mountain of death to meet Him. Genesis 5:24, Hebrews 11:5, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
Wait on Him- sing His praise, thank Him for who He is. 
If you haven't surrendered your life to God, do not bother to praise Him.
Proverbs 15:8
If you join those praising God, you still won't go with Him at the rapture.
Bow your head now and ask God to please save your soul, wash you clean with His blood and to include you in the family of God.

Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon June Holy Ghost Service #LetThereBeLight6

June 2020 Holy Ghost Service 
Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye
Theme: Let There Be Light 6
Bible Text: 15:22-26
Song: Holy is Your name
Holy is Your name 
Holy is Your name, O Lord
Jesus is Your name
Jesus is Your name
Jesus is Your name, O Lord

Prayer: Lord God Almighty, in Your own miraculous ways, please, put an end to this plague in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen. 

Announcement 📢 : The theme for the July Holy Ghost Service is: Let There Be Light 7. 
For everyone experiencing bitter waters, the end will come to that sorrow and the bitter waters in Jesus' name.
Every Holy Ghost Service is special in a way, but a particular one usually stands out for each person. This Holy Ghost Service is one that you will not forget in a hurry. Amen 
From the Exodus 15:22-26:
Long before the Israelites got to Marah, there was already a tree growing there. It means before your problem started, God had provided a solution. 
Before darkness came, Light was already existing. Genesis 1:1-3
Before that mountain that is blocking your way was formed, God has already been existing. Psalm 90:1-2, Revelation 1:8 & John 1:1-3. 
Before Goliath started terrorising Israel, the rock that would kill Goliath was already existing. It was only waiting for David. 
1 Samuel 17:38-51
Before you were formed, God knew you. 
Jeremiah 1:4-5. Scientists have it that everything about a child is settled 72 hours after conception.
Light shone on the tree that had been there before Moses and the Israelites got there. Exodus 15:25
You need God's direction in life. You need Him to show you what to do. Psalm 143:8 & Isaiah 30:21. 
You need God to show you what to do so that you may be completely whole because your healing has been settled over thousands years ago. 1 Peter 2:24. 
The River Jordan had been existing before Naaman's leprosy. 2 Kings 5:1-14
The figs that God used to heal Hezekiah had been there before his illness. Isaiah 38: 1-21
You need God to send His light so that you may know exactly what to do to receive your healing. It could be an act of restitution that is needed. Genesis 12:14-20, 20:1-18
Anything whatsoever that is standing between you and total wholeness, may the Almighty God reveal to you today.
I pray once again whatever is blocking you from total healing, may the Almighty God reveal to you today.
What do you need to do to receive your breakthrough?
Your breakthrough has been settled more than 2000 years ago. 2 Corinthians 8:9, John 10:10, 3 John 1:2
We know of the concepts of giving and sowing. Luke 6:38, 2 Corinthians 9:6
Even when you sow on good soil, the yields can differ in volume. Matthew 13:3-9
What do you do to turn the tide from not enough to more than enough? 2 Kings 4:1-7
Under the command of the Holy Spirit, all of you who are under debt, you will be out of debt soon in the mighty name of Jesus.
A widow enjoyed the ceaseless flow of oil to pay her debts . The solution to her problem had been there including the bottle of oil. But she got a step-by-step direction on what to do.
The Lord said to tell you Relax, I am the Almighty God and I will take care of you.
You may need to make a sacrifice like the widow of Zarephath in I Kings 17:8-16 or like Abraham in Genesis 22:1-18.
Genesis 26:1-14
There was famine in the land; the land was barren. Due to God's promise to Abraham in Genesis 22, Isaac enjoyed harvest amidst all that was happening in the same year. 
It doesn't matter on what soil you sow, because it is God who gives increase. 
If God withholds increase, there will be no yield. 1 Corinthians 3:6-7
What does God want you to do so that your breakthrough comes?
How and what does He want you to pray for to get all-round breakthrough? Genesis 1:28
Jesus said you will do the works He did and even greater. John 14:12
It has been settled more than 2000 years ago, that you will raise the dead, heal the sick and work wonders in the name of Jesus.
What is it that is hindering your breakthrough?
Hannah had been attending Shiloh for years without result until she promised her unconceived child to God. 1 Samuel 1:9-20
God visited Solomon and Solomon asked for the right thing- wisdom. 2 Chronicles 1:6-15
1 Kings 4:24
God blessed him with all that he needed, even beyond what he asked.
Solomon prayed the right prayer. 
Elisha asked for the right thing. 2 Kings 2:9-15, 13:14-21. He became a father to kings and left the legacy of power.
The tree God showed to Moses became a solution to a national problem.
Pray to the Almighty God that you will be the tree. Psalm 1:1-3, 92:12-14
On this special night, cry out to God:
Lord, let Your light shine on me and turn me into the one who will put an end to sorrow and bitterness in the lives of people.
God let Your light shine on me and turn me to the one that will put an end to sorrow, tears and bitterness in the life of people. 
The Lord says to tell someone “The wind that is blowing all over the world will blow for you for good.” Let this be your prayer tonight:
Eli was the tree that God used to issue the decree that ended Hannah's sorrow. 1 Samuel 1:9-21
You can be someone who will issue a decree to end someone's sorrow and it will be established by God. 1 Kings 17:8-16
Before the sun rises tomorrow, you will be the tree that God will use to end someone's sorrow in the mighty name of Jesus.
I'm issuing a decree to everyone who is my child, you will never lack!
A female slave was the link to the solution to Naaman's leprosy. 2 Kings 5:1-14
John 6:5-13
A boy gave his lunch and became the solution to the hunger of 5000 men.
You can become that boy and be the solution to someone's problem.
The Lord said to tell you; “doors are closing, but I will open a major door for you.”Acts 3:1-8
God used Peter to turn the tide of the man who was born lame.
The tree in Marah wasn't an ordinary tree. It is a tree of destiny that grew specifically for that time. It wouldn't have fulfilled destiny if God had not shown it to Moses.
You need to pray to God that He will show you to who will help you fulfill your destiny.
Genesis 37:5-11
Joseph knew he wasn't an ordinary boy, but he revealed his destiny to the wrong people. Genesis 37:15-20
1 Kings 19:15-21 God revealed to Elijah that Elisha would take over from him; he became the one that helped Elisha's destiny. He wanted it to be well with him. 2 Kings 2:9-15
1 Kings 19:15-21
I pray that God will shine His light on you and reveal you to who will help your destiny.
Thank God for fathers who will want their children to be greater. Thank God for helpers of destiny. Pa Akindayomi was a destiny helper to me 
Mark 16:17-18 Acts 20:35
Hebrews 7:7 "If you are a blessing you are better than the one who is blessed".
To be blessed is good, but to be a blessing is better. To be healed is good but it is better to be the one who will lay hand on the sick and would be healed. 
Altar Call: If you surrender to Jesus today, He'll not only bless you but also make you a blessing: just like that tree that sweetened the river of Marah. What are you waiting for? Surrender your life to Jesus.
Prayer Points:
1. Praise the Almighty God for it has pleased Him to let this message come unto you.
2. Father, if there is anything blocking my way, please reveal to me tonight and help my restitute my ways.
3. Father, anything standing between me and my financial breakthrough, send Your light so I may know it and deal with it.
4. Father, send Your light so that whatever I have to do to turn the tide in my favour to have all-round breakthrough, will be revealed to me.
5. Father, please teach me to pray the right prayers tonight.
6. Father, shine Your light on me, turn me to a blessing to the world, my generation and generation yet unborn
7. Father, shine Your light on me; point me out to the one who'll make me fulfil my destiny
8. Individual requests
9. Pray for the world that the Almighty God will stop this plague
10. Pray for me (Pastor E A Adeboye) 
As you pray the prayers, may the Lord meet with you and may you testify before the sun rises tomorrow in Jesus’ mighty name.
God bless you!

Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon June Holy Communion Service

June Holy Communion Service
Ministering: Pastor E. A Adeboye
Theme: Let There Be Light 6
Bible Text: 2 Kings 4: 38-41
What goes into your body can terminate your life if it’s poisonous. If discovered early and the right antidote is given, the poison can be neutralised.
The best Antidote is the Body of Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:23-24, 1 Peter 2:24.
The Holy Communion is a sacred meal. Eating it ‘unworthy’ can result in death. 1 Corinthians 11:27-30. It is a covenant meal; a meal meant for only those who are 100% convinced of their salvation and eternal home. If you are not sure of your salvation, please do not partake of the Holy Communion.
For those who are already children of God, the Bible says you must discern the Body of Christ; that is, no bitterness in you towards any member of the Body of Christ.
Key Note:
1. The bread represents the Body of Jesus. Matthew 15:13
As you partake of the Holy Communion, His body will go into the root of your system and find everything not planted by God to root them out.
2. All sicknesses originated from the devil for there is no sickness in Heaven. Matthew 12:22
3. The wine which is symbolic of His blood completes the job done by the Antidote (the bread) in your system. Revelation 12:10-11
4. The wine which represents the Blood of Jesus is poison to demons.
When should it be eaten?
1. The Bible calls the Holy Communion the Lord's supper. Supper is eaten at night; best after dusk. Exodus 12:11-12, John 13:1-30.
How is it to be taken?
1. Worthily
2. If you're worshipping with others, wait for them so you may eat together. 1 Corinthians 11:33
3. You must eat the Holy Communion with only members of the Body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:29, Ephesians 1:22-22

Prayer Points:
1. Any plant that the Almighty God has not planted in my body, be uprooted tonight in the mighty name of Jesus.

2. Every thing demonic in my system, get out now in the Name of Jesus.

Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon at May 2020 Special Sunday Service

May 2020 Special Sunday Service 
Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye 
Theme: All Things Work Together for Good
Bible Text: Romans 8:35
Jesus Jesus Jesus
Jesus Jesus Jesus
Jesus is the Lord
Jesus Jesus Jesus 
Jesus Jesus Jesus
Jesus is the Lord
Miracles are the babies of impossibilities.
Romans 8:28, John 11:39-45
The bigger your problems, the greater your testimony. So, I have a good news for you today, that big problem in your life will soon result in a testimony. Psalm 119:71
There is nothing that happens in the life of a child of God that won’t lead to a testimony.
Mark 10:46-42
Did you know that blind Bartimeus wouldn't have been in the Bible if not for the challenge of his eyes? Did you know that Peter wouldn't have encountered Jesus if he didn't experience failure that day? Luke 5:1-11
All things work together for good including this lockdown. Lots of great things will come out of this lockdown. 
Examples of those who became great as a result of a lockdown:
1. David: 1 Samuel 22:1-2, He became great while hiding away with  cast-offs from his father-in-law, King Saul. In 2 Samuel 23:8-39, these cast-offs had become David's mighty army. They became mighty during a lockdown. 
2. Elijah: 1 Kings 17:17-24
Elijah experienced lockdown in the house of a widow. His movement was restricted. While he was there ,he became th first prophet ever to raise the dead. He grew spiritually to become a very mighty man. I'm believing God for you my children that by the time this lockdown is over, you'll be raising the dead.
3. Joseph: Genesis 40:1-22
Joseph became an interpreter of dreams while in prison. Genesis 41:1-44; After his lockdown, he became Prime Minister of most powerful nation as that time.
After this lockdown, your promotion will be accelerated in the mighty name of Jesus. 
How to Maximize this Lockdown Period for Growth:
1. Rejoice: Philippians 4:4. Paul wrote the scripture while in prison. 1 Thessalonians 5:16
Rejoice because your tomorrow will be alright. 
2. Praise God: 1 Thessalonians 5:18
3. Pray: 1 Thessalonians 5:17
4. Study: 2 Timothy 2:15
5. Meditate: Joshua 1:8, Think on what you have read and studied. 
6. Receive visions for your future: John the Beloved was locked down when he received the revelations. Joel 2:28, Proverbs 29:18
7. Plan what next to do in actualizing the visions. Commit the plans to God. Psalm 37:5
8. Clean up your house & immediate surroundings. Let me advise you, turn over your mattress even today & you'll be amazed at the things gathered under your bed. Deuteronomy 23:14
9. As you clean your house, you will discover things you've not used in years or things you no longer need. Give them out. 
There are people in need of these things who will praise God for you when you bless them with these things. 2 Corinthians 9:11-12
10. Pray for Pastor E A Adeboye
Paul said pray for your Pastors and leaders. 
1 Thessalonians 5:25 & 2 Thessalonians 3:1
They need your prayers. All things work together for good only for those who love God.
Why? God loves those who love Him. Proverbs 8:17. This lockdown is a time to seek God. 
Proverbs 8:35-36. Those who hate God love death. God told me earlier that only those whose time has come will die from the virus.
Those who have died are less than 10% of those who have fallen ill. 
Altar Call: The Almighty God has said "sit down at home" to all those who think they are mighty. I'm appealing to you who's yet to have Jesus in your life as Lord and Saviour, love God! This is especially to those who think they're big and mighty, what's the essence of your money now? Why don't you surrender to the One who is mightier than you? Surrender to Jesus now. Bow your head and cry out to God to save your soul. Ask Him to save your soul and forgive your sins. Now cry out to the Almighty God and ask Him to draw you closer unto Him. Talk to Him with all your heart. Ask Him to give you a new beginning and accept you. For those of you who have given your life to Jesus, please contact me. God bless you.

Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon at May 2020 Special Sunday Service

May 2020 Special Sunday Service 
Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye 
Theme: Overcoming Mountains
Bible Text: Exodus 14:13-18
Song: We give glory to the Lord, He reigns
We give glory to the Lord, He reigns
He reigns
He reigns
We give glory to the Lord, He reigns. 

I once preached a sermon on seven ways to Deal with a Mountain.
A mountain is an obstacle blocking your way; a unexpected problem or unfamiliar crisis.

Ways to Deal with a mountain:
1. Turn back. Numbers 14:1-4. The Israelites wanted to appoint a captain so they could go back to Egypt.
My prayer for you today is that the problem that will take you back to Egypt, that will take you away from Jesus Christ will never cross your path.
2. To go round it; to look for a way around it. The problem with going round a mountain is that you don't know how far it stretches. 

Numbers 32:13. The children of Israel went round the mountain for 40 years. That problem that will cause you to go round  and round, the Almighty God will not bring your way.

3. Climbing the mountain. Exodus 17:8-13
4. Bore a hole or tunnel through the mountain. Exodus 14:21-28. The Red Sea parted and the children of Israel passed through.
When you bore a hole through a mountain, the mountain remains but you're already on the other side.
5. Dynamite the mountain. Get some huge explosives and blow the mountain. 
Joshua 6:1-20; Joshua and the children of Israel blew up the wall of Jericho by giving a big shout.
6. You can turn the mountain to a habitation; you can sit on the mountain or build a house on it. 2 Kings 4:18-37
7. Fly over the mountain. Isaiah 40:31
This is the greatest option of all. The mountain will be there but you'll be flying above it.

There are certain situations you must pass through; certain mountains you must bore your way through. Isaiah 43:2

What you must do to bore your way through: 
1. Trust God the Father knowing that nothing takes God by surprise. Psalm 90:2
Trust God the Son because He said He is the Way. John 14:6
Trust God the Holy Spirit because He can create a path where there's no path. Acts 2:1-4
The Wind is going to blow for you and He'll create a path where there's none.
2. Remember God's mercies and His faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
God has brought you thus far; He's not going to disappoint you now.
At night when you become completely helpless, there is One who doesn't sleep or slumber and watches over you not because you deserve it but of His mercies. 
1 Samuel 17:34-37; What gave David the assurance that he would defeat Goliath was God's faithfulness in the past.
The challenges you're facing now may be new but God remains the same. Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 13:8
If He has healed you before, He will heal you again. If He has delivered you before, He will deliver you again. If He has seen you through before, He will see you through again.
Trust God; remember His mercies and His faithfulness. 
3. Believe God's prophets. 2 Chronicles 20:20; the children of Israel didn't hear from God; they only heard from Moses.
I'm not claiming to be a prophet, but I told you at the beginning of the year; this year, the earth will behave like a child in convulsion. 
I also told you, particularly those of you who are my genuine children, you'll pass through the sea without even a touch of water on you.
Even the smell of fire was not upon Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego when they came out of the furnace.
I want you to believe me because my Father does not lie; you will come out of this problem safe and sound.
4. You must take a step of faith. 
It took an act of faith for the children of Israel to step into the parted sea because there was a huge wall of water on both sides.
Relax, live by faith; God cannot fail you.

God the Father is on the throne, God the Son is by His right hand side watching you and the Holy Spirit is in charge right now.
Remember God's faithfulness and mercies and then move forward.
1 Peter 5:7 Whatever problem you're facing, roll it unto the Almighty God and leave it there. He's more than enough to handle them. Once you pray, leave the rest to the Almighty God.
Isaiah 3:10; If you don't believe me, believe Isaiah who said it will be well with the righteous. Your tomorrow will be alright!
The same Isaiah said woe to the wicked for it shall be ill with him. Isaiah 3:11
Altar call: If you haven't surrendered your life to Jesus Christ, cross over to the right side. He's the One who can make a way where there's no way. He is the Way.
If you would like to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, bow your head and ask Him to please save your soul. Ask Him to make you a part of His family. God bless you.

Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon at May 2020 Special Sunday Service

May 2020 Special Sunday Service 
Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye 
Theme: The Secrets of Unending Success
Bible Text: Mark 16:15-20
Song: Emmanuel
How great Thou art.

We want to continue from where we left off last Sunday
Every successful man has a secret; the secret of their success.
When we talk about successful people, there is none who comes close to Jesus.
He had all-round success. 
The mass choir of Heaven sang for Him. Luke 2:8-14. At age 12, Jesus was a celebrity. Luke 2:42-47. As an adult, His fame had gone abroad. Mark 1:23-34. He completed His assignment on earth. John 17:1-5. Some don't like Him but they can't ignore Him. Philippians 2:9-11. Anytime Jesus wanted to communicate with those close to Him, He spoke in codes as with John the Beloved. John 13:21-27. He told John the Beloved who would betray Him by using a code. However, when He was about to leave the earth, He revealed the secret of all-round success to His disciples. 
Mark 16:15-20. What is the secret of all-round success for every child of God? Preach the Gospel; be a committed soul winner.
What is the secret of all-round success for every child of God?

Preach the Gospel; be a committed soul winner. 

If you are a soul winner:
1. All your prayers will be answered. John 15:16. Exodus 33:17-23 God asked Moses to request anything because Moses had brought salvation to the nation of Israel.
Moses saw the glory of God because of His commitment. Exodus 34:30-35
Elijah asked that fire fall and he got it. 1 Kings 18:36-39
Elisha requested a difficult thing and he got it. 2 Kings 2:9-15
2. You will enjoy the constant touch of God. John 15:1-2
The leper who enjoyed healing went about testifying about it. Mark 1:40-45
Jesus knew he would be a soul winner.
God will break any law to give healing to a soul winner. He will cure the incurable. You don't need to be a prophet to hear from God.
If you're a soul winner, you'd constantly hear from God. God will give the regular soul winner supernatural strength. 1 Kings 18:46
When God's hand is upon you, You'll begin to hear from God regularly; this, you'll become a Counsellor to the high and MIGHTY. 2 Kings 3:9-19
3. You will enjoy miraculous supply. Everything the soulwinner touches will multiply. John 6:5-13 Peter enjoyed overflowing supply Luke 5:1-11. That breakthrough you're crying to God for is already in the mouth of a fish but you have to go fish. Matthew 17:24-27. In every man's life, there is a river and in one of those rivers is your fish. Keep fishing you don't know where your fish is. 
4. Be a committed soul winner and you will begin to enjoy divine immunity. Mark 16:17-18
As a soul winner, you won't have to worry about arrows, serpents, poison and all sorts of attacks. Acts 28:1-6
1 Corinthians 9:16, Isaiah 54:14-17
No weapon formed against you shall prosper. 
As a soulwinner, you don't have to worry about any virus or bacteria coming near you.
5. As a committed soul winner, you begin to enjoy divine partnership. Mark 16:20
A soulwinner has a partner in the Almighty God. Exodus 3:1-15
God partnered with Joshua. Joshua 1:1-8
David enjoyed God's partnership and he defeated Goliath. 1 Samuel 17:34-37
6. As a committed soulwinner, you begin to enjoy Divine Excellence. Peter excelled above the others; even his shadow was working wonders. Acts 5:12-16, Acts 2:14-41, 3:12-26
Of the seven deacons, Philip and Stephen excelled. Acts 6:1-7. Philip went from deacon to evangelist. Acts 8:5-8, Acts 7:55-56
I pray for you, as you win souls, very very soon, in your place of work and in your family, you will begin to excel.
7. As a soulwinner, all things being equal, you will live long. On the other hand, if you fail to win souls as a Christian, you may not live very long. Luke 13:6-9. How many souls have you won since you gave your life to Jesus? Matthew 3:10. If you refuse to win souls, you are in great danger. The one who obeys the great commission is likened to a wise man while the one who disobeys is likened to a foolish man. Matthew 7:24-27
Two christians look alike until the floods come.
To every believer, the flood will come. Those who survive the floods are the soul winners.
Don't use the lockdown as an excuse, use your phone to reach out to your friends who aren't born again. Yes, you're on lockdown, but your phone is not locked down. As soon as the lockdown is over, go out and start winning souls.
Altar Call: If you're yet to be a born again, ask that God will have mercy on you and give you a genuine salvation. Ask Him to write your name in His book and help you to serve Him forever in Jesus’ name. 
For those of you who are born again, please re-dedicate your life to Him and commit to soulwinning. Ask that He work miracles and healings through you.
