Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon of January 2020 Holy Ghost Service - Let Be Light

Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon of January 2020 Holy Ghost Service
Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye
Just as the first sign of someone who is sick is loss of appetite, It's the same, as someone who finds it difficult to Praise God is Spiritually sick. Beginning from now, when you find it difficult to praise God the way you used to, you should check yourself. When you hear marvelous testimonies and it doesn't seem to move you to praise God, check yourself.
Pray: “Please go ahead and give God praise and adoration for His faithfulness and loving-kindness.
Thank Him for His sure mercies which endures forever.”
One of the greatest sin that can be committed is the sin of ingratitude. God dislikes ingratitude. It was ingratitude who made the man fall in the beginning. If I have my way, we'd be thanking God all through today. The theme for the Holy Ghost Night for February is “Let There Be Light part 2.” You can have all the money in the world and still suffer. Those of us who don't have all the money but can eat should be grateful to God. You can talk, you can shout, you can shout, but when we say you should praise God, it is difficult for you. Brethren let's Thank God the one who has given you the mouth, Praise Him, He deserves it! God gave you hands that are still mobile, your breath is intact, your legs are working, you're living, come on, give God the glory and Thanksgiving. Recount to God His faithfulness in keeping you! I just want to help you praise God. The bible says that men would have swallowed us up if God hadn't been on our side. You don't know the battle God fights for you when you're sleeping helplessly.
I told you recently of a man whose daughter confessed of being in a witch cult. God kept him and didn't allow the daughter to kill him. Do you know who you're sleeping with? God is probably using tonight's programme to open our eyes to see our error of ingratitude. We need to thank God.
Announcement:
“Our fast as a church will commence on the 11th of January 2020 - 29th of February 2020 (50 Days only) for the first installment. To speed it up, it'd be for 21 days. Those exempted are those above 70.”
“All over the campground, there are angels of God watching over us. However, because the world is also progressing, we're leveraging on tech. Everywhere is recorded in CCTV. Cameras are everywhere watching you. It's a legal requirement that I tell you, so, be informed!”
Topic: “Let there be Light”
Bible Text: Genesis 1:1-5
Let there be light can be a command (Genesis 1:3), It can be an advice. This is from God to man (Revelations 3:20), an advice, request or a plea (This is usually from a man to God). To those in darkness, God is advising you with the statement 'Let there be light'. James 1:17 All perfect gifts come from God and when you allow God to come in, He won't come in empty-handed. Luke 5:1-7: When God comes in, failure will jump out. Light can't tolerate failure. God is saying if you allow Him Come in, darkness goes out Luke 5. When He comes in, success comes in. Even your needs go Phil 4:19. If you open your heart to the light of God, you'll suddenly see yourself succeeding and being catered for. Philippians 4:13, 19. When Jesus comes in, all yokes will be destroyed and total freedom will be guaranteed. Acts 12:1-11 This is advice. God is saying, let Me come in and Death will not be able to stay Mark 5:34-43. God won’t force you to be saved, He won’t force you to surrender to Jesus. He’s simply saying choose light and surrender to Jesus who will save you from all your sins. God never begs. Take God's advice today and surrender your soul to Him. Do not be deceived; you cannot claim to be born again and live your life anyhow. Mark 5: 35-43 Deuteronomy 30:19-20 God will not force you to be saved! God will not force you to surrender your life to Jesus! When you make a decision to surrender to Jesus, it will affect your generation. Same as when you choose not to give your life to Jesus, it will affect your generation too. Before you accept Jesus, kindly note, when you give your life to Jesus, it's bye to your former life.
If you would like to choose light over darkness by giving your life to Jesus;
1.    Fall before God in repentance
2.    Ask for mercy
3.    Ask that Jesus come into your life and be your personal Lord and Saviour
Matthew 15:21-28 When the woman whose daughter was vexed with a devil approached Jesus, she requested for the light. If that mad man of Gadara could speak, he would've asked for light.
Prayer Point
Our prayers will be in 5-fold.
1.    Let Your light shine for me. If the light of God shines for you, you'll see the invisible. 2Kings 2:9-15. When God's light shines for you, all your requests no matter how hard will be answered. The implication of seeing the Invisible is that all your requests no matter how hard will be granted. That light shone for Elisha, and his manifestation began. 1 Kings 19:19-41. I pray for you that your destiny will be activated as the light of God shines for you in Jesus’ name. Seeing the Invisible doesn't necessarily mean seeing angels. It also entails seeing into the future and seeing how powerful God can make you. When God's light shine for you, you'd see how great you can become.
2.    Father, let Your Light shine in me. Psalms119:18 God's light shining in you means God is opening your eyes and you begin to get dreams and Revelations. 2 Cor 12: 2-7. Daddy said there's someone here: "I will robe you in Light and the Light will so bright, the enemies will not be able to look in your direction." My PhD Thesis that I was labouring on for 18 months was sold in 5 hours because God shine His light on me through the story of the children of Israel crossing the Red Sea.
3.    “Father, let Your light shine through me.” Acts 3:1-8. Those studying science know that the moon has no light of its own, the sun shines through it. The Lord is saying to someone today: "I will send you a divine Encourager" If the light of God is shining through you, you can cause others to begin to see light through you. 2Kings6:8-17. When there is darkness there is stagnation. When the light begins to shine, stagnation comes to an end.
4.    Father, let your Light shine into my Blind spot and provide help where I am helpless. This means, God, at the level I'm helpless, please cover for me. 2 Sam 21:15-17. In that area where you are weakest, may the Almighty God send help to you tonight in the mighty name of Jesus! As we go through this year, be encouraged it’s going to be a year of shouts of joy and many victories which implies there might be a lot of battles in essence you’d need help. The ever-present help in time of need will always avail for you in Jesus' name. The Lord says there is someone here tonight; very soon, someone is going to give you 3 big offers and ask you to choose one. Your answer should be all of the above.
5.    Father, let Your Light shine on whatever is hindering my little light. I pray in the Name that is above every other name, whatever is covering your light will be removed tonight! God’s word says you are the Light of the world but sometimes our little light is been covered by something we most times don’t know. Joshua 7.
