Let's lift our hands to the Most High God as we bless His holy name. Let's give Him honour, praises and adoration. He's worthy to be praised and there's none like Him. Bless His holy name! Thank You Almighty God!” Ancient of days, the Father of Light, the One who speaks and it is done, blessed be Your name. There's none like You, You're the best in all categories, glory to Your name, accept our worship in Jesus’ name. Thank You for the day You started the Holy Ghost service.Tonight, visit Your children more than ever before. Let there be light. Change our weeping to laughter, change our sorrow to joy. Visit our online brethren too. Please, have mercy on Nigeria, in Jesus’ mighty name we've prayed. Let somebody shout hallelujah! Announcement: Number of babies born since the beginning of this Special Holy Ghost Service stands at 18, 11 boys and 7 girls. Prophesy to someone and say, “The light of God will shine upon you tonight.” I rejoice with everyone here tonight... We've been having the Holy Ghost service every month since 1986 because its foundation is in God. Today is the anniversary of the first Holy Ghost service I have it on God's Word, whatever you ask for tonight, you'll get. God will be doing special healing tonight, as a matter of fact, God told me that there are some young persons who don't like the shape of their heads, He said You'll get the desired shape of head before the service ends tonight. It's the Holy Ghost service, the sermon isn't expected to be that long because we are going to pray having the confidence that God answers our prayers. Announcements Not to forget, next Month (April) is the special holy ghost service for children. Don't forget the hanky-panky of the devil to cloud that day with hold-ups, bring them here early, there's enough space for them to play on the campground. We'll be praying specially for them and anointing them too. Open your bibles to Judges 15:9-16, The lord has started the healing, and he is starting from the head down to the toes. “Somebody will sing a new song tonight!” 1 John 1:5, God is Light, not only that, He's the Father of lights, James 1:17. Malachi 4:2 He is the Sun or righteousness! He rises with healing in His wings. By implication, let God arise means let there be light. When you say let there be light, you're simply asking that God arises. Not only that, you're asking that He focuses on you and directs His light on you. When He does this, certain things are bound to happen. I’ll list them so that you'd pray. You see, according to our text, it was Samson's relatives that have him up to his external enemies. But all of a sudden, God arose as He's about to rise for someone tonight. The yokes in your life will be destroyed. Isaiah 10:27 Daniel 3:14-27: The story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Acts 3:5-8: The blind man at the beautiful gate. Mark 5:25-34: The woman of the issue of blood. “Tonight, if there's yoke of death, stagnation and decrements in your life, it's going to be destroyed in Jesus’ name.” Mark 1:23-27, The worst type of yoke is the unseen one. All looks well on the outside, but there is a yoke within. There are people who look fine on the outside but are dealing with issues on the inside, those are unseen yokes. A comfortable man who had no satisfaction until he ate leftovers from the dustbin was delivered by the Lord. In the name of the one who called me, all those unseen yokes that has been disturbing your life will end tonight. Amen. In that Name that is above every other name, that secret yoke that is reducing you to the level of dogs will be destroyed tonight. Whatever you touch begins to prosper. Exodus 4:1-20. Samson used the jawbone of an ash to defeat his enemies. The day the light shone on Moses, the rod of Moses became the rod of God. Exodus 15:22-25, 2 Kings 4:38-41, 2 Kings 6:1-7. “I have good news for you today, because the light of God will shine on you, from now on, everything you touch will prosper.” It doesn't matter the nature of your external enemies, they'll be destroyed: 1 Samuel 17:34-51. God said they that gather against you shall Fall for your sake. Isaiah 54:15. I have good news for you, long after the gangsters have been forgotten, you'd still be riding high."May I announce to you; everyone against your progress will receive a visit from God this weekend." “The Lord wants me to tell someone; very soon, when you introduce yourself, people will stand at attention.” Internal enemies will be humiliated. Genesis 50:15-18 Joseph's brothers came and bowed before him. “Any internal enemy you may have, they will come and bow down before you.” 1 Samuel 22:1-2. Internal enemies are more dangerous than the external enemies. Elders have a saying, “if the internal doesn't kill you, the external cannot kill you.” A man with his wife came to us some many years ago accusing his wife to be a witch. We asked her, and she refused the allegations, daring us to pray. The next time we saw her, she was 3 times her normal size, because I bound the serpent in her and didn't allow it to out. By that time, she was ready to be delivered. Every evil force being used by any relatives or wolves in sheep's clothing around you, I bind it now in Jesus’ name. When I was appointed general overseer, a woman brought her 10 years old who was born dumb. As I said, “in Jesus’ name”, the child responded, “Amen.” I was so frightened, I wanted to jump out the window. There is someone here tonight, mark my words, I'll give you a miracle that will frighten you. When God rises for you, your rising will be so rapid. Genesis 41:1-44. Joseph was raised from a prisoner to a prime minister in less than 24 hours. Less than 24 hours! When God arises for you, nobody can stop your rising. Psalm 23:5 I went to a university to preach and it rained mightily. Funny enough, all the students stayed with me in the rain. I didn't know they had a plan. They broke the chair I sat on and broke it into Little bits. One of them took his bit to his sister at home who's been mad for more than 16 years. She recovered instantly! She said she's was on a long bad dream.“The Lord asked me to tell someone here Your destiny that has been held on hold shall be fully restored tonight. Amen!” "The Lord says there is someone here; your little will become big and your big will become enormous" "The Lord said to me. 78 is a combination of 2 figures. 7- Perfection, 8- A new beginning.God says I will perfect your past and give you a brand new beginning." You will laugh last. 1 Samuel 1:1-8; 2, Daniel 6:21-28. He who laughs last, laughs best. After Samson dismissed his external enemies and humiliated the internal enemies and rose up, he sang a new song. When God arises for you--- at the beginning, it was the Philistines who were bragging --- you'll laugh last. 1 Samuel 1:1-8, 1 Samuel 2:1- the end is a very excellent example; Hannah and Peninnah. Daniel 6:1-28 also supports this. Psalms 40:1-3 Somebody will sing a new song today! Prayer Points: 1. Thank God that you are around at such a time like this that he has chosen to answer prayers. 2. Father! Let Your light shine on me and destroy all the yokes of poverty, fruitless effort, sadness, etc 3. Father! Let your light shine on me today and from now on everything i touch let it begin to prosper. 4. Father! Let your light shine on me today and take care of all my external enemies. 5. Father! Let your light shine on me today and very soon let all my internal enemies come and bow before me. 6. Father! Let your light shine on me today and let my promotion be rapid. 7. Father! Let Your light shine on me today, let any attempt to stop my rising be stopped. 8. Father! Let Your light shine on me today, let me laugh last.
