MESSAGE

Prophecy: There is someone here with a stubborn cough for a long time, medications have not been able to solve it. Right now, where you are, the power of God is touching you. Let that cough dry up and let its root be dried up. Right away, take the power of God and be loosed forever.

I want you to pray one prayer before I go ahead. Lift up your right hand to the Lord and pray: “My Father, glorify Jesus in my life today. Manifest God’s glory in my situation within these seven days.”

I welcome you to the second day and I want to appreciate one more time, my very Father in the Lord, my angel in human flesh, my mentor, my encourager, a nonagenarian – one who is more than 90 years old, Pa. Professor Olu Ajolore. We appreciate you and love you, sir. If you see something good about a person, move close to the person and that grace will rub on you. Let me tell you this, if you want to live long, get close to the elderly; bless them. I have never had any Unusual Encounter without first of all going to Pa. Ajolore a day or two before because he must say a word.

Some of you don’t know how to respect elders. Some of you, your parents are in the village and you are driving cars, without even thinking of buying something for them. Some of you have 3 or 4 cars parked in your compound while your elderly mother is still boarding okada. Some of you are using different gas cookers in the home while your parents are still going to the bush to fetch firewood. Respect the elders, recognize the elders in your neighborhood and take care of them. From today, make up your mind to take care of those who are ahead of you. Respect the elderly, honor them, especially elderly people in Christ – grey hair with righteousness. Hallelujah!

All our fathers and mothers in this house this morning, I bless you in the name of the Lord. You will fulfill your days. You will not weep over any of your children. You will see the joy of your children in the name of Jesus. I pray this prayer for you; in Psalms 90:15, David said, “Make us glad according to the days wherein thou has afflicted us…” I pray for you, for the number of years you have had affliction and pain, from now, God will give you double joy and reward you. Your latter will be better than the beginning, Amen. All the Ministers, the Lord bless you, we appreciate your coming here today.

In the morning yesterday, because it was our first day, we had to take more time to pray and in the evening, Prophet Adio spoke so much and gave a cool introduction and overview of our theme: God of all Possibilities; that theme will be experienced in your life, Amen. I want to just pick two statements that touched me so much yesterday. He said, “Anytime God wants to show mercy, He gathers His people together like this.” Anytime God wants to show mercy to His people, He will gather them and make sure that person comes to that meeting. You are the one God wants to show mercy today. If you are the one, shout Hallelujah! The other statement he said, “Your problem does not take any tears or struggle from God. It doesn’t take him anything to do; it doesn’t cost him anything. He can do it. He will do it. You are the next to testify.”

This morning, let us quickly look at the Word of God. I sense the power of God so mighty here. I want you to stand on your feet, recognize something so difficult and that looks like a challenge in your life or situation. Say, “Father, the God of all Possibilities, there is nothing too hard for you, glorify yourself in my situation. Let this situation become possible. Give me a testimony.”

There are some prayers you don’t keep quiet in praying them, pray like Bartimaeus. We just heard the story of Sister Priscilla in Abuja. She was of age, ‘of age’ in the presence of man but not in the presence of God. Jesus was 4 days late but was still on time. Nothing is too difficult for Him to do. Sister Priscilla’s first conception, not the second or third gave birth to a set of twins, is anything too difficult for God? What is your situation? By next year, you will be the one to testify. Pray, “Lord, I am on Graceland, I am before the God of all Possibilities. Father, change my story.” I prophesy and declare to you, “As the Lord liveth before whom I stand, by this time next year, you will be a testifier. The power of Possibility is at work in your situation in the name of Jesus. Let the power of God consume every work of the Devil. Holy Ghost Fire!!! Let the works of the Devil be stubble and let the fire devour them.”

In John 9:30 – 33, the story of the healing of the man that was born blind. Before his eyes were opened, Jesus said, “Go and wash your face in the waters of Siloam,” he went there and as he did what Jesus told him to do, his eyes got opened. The Pharisees and the Jews who only read but don’t practice, said, “How can?” They argued and even came to meet the father of the child. The father told them that his son has mouth, so they should go and ask him. He didn’t want to be put in unnecessary trouble. They came to meet the formerly blind man again. He said, “What do you want to hear from me. This thing that he has done, is it not marvelous? I don’t know where he is from but one thing I know is that God does not hear the words of sinners.” The Bible says the eyes of the Lord are bitter upon those who do evil on the face of the earth. God does not hear the prayers of sinners. Friends, the only prayer that God hears from a sinner is: Save me from my sin.” The man said, “From the beginning of the world, it has not been heard of that someone opens the eyes of a person born blind.”

I say to you again, “What man cannot do, God will do for you. What the doctors cannot do, Jehovah, the Almighty will do for you. What your uncle cannot do, Jehovah will do for you. What your parents cannot do, the Almighty God will do for you. What your boss cannot do, Jesus will do it for you.” The man said such has never been done before and he knew the man was marvelous and that he was from God.

There is nothing God cannot do. Pharaoh kept the children of Israel for about 430 years, He told them they can’t go anywhere, but God said, “Let my people go.” I hear God telling me to tell somebody here today, this morning, “You are getting out of that bondage, oppression, bad dream, affliction, pain.” Amen. Who says and it comes to pass when God has not said it? Pray: “Father, arise and dethrone everyone acting as God in my life.”  Pray again, from the whole of your heart and the God of heaven who hears prayers, this morning, will give you an answer. Pray: “Father in Heaven, take power from anyone who is acting as God over my life.” Amen.

You see God demonstrating all through the Scriptures – that is the God of all Possibilities. He brought the children of Israel out and Pharaoh and his chariots were destroyed. The Scripture says, “I will sing of the Lord for he has triumphed gloriously: the horse and his riders has he thrown into the sea… Pharaoh’s chariots and his host has he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea.” “The enemy said, I will pursue, overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them but God who sits upon the throne laughed at them… Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing? He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.” Listen, this is a Prophecy: “All the enemies who keep pursuing you, even to Graceland, are in trouble.” Pray, “My father, after the order of Pharaoh, let the stubborn pursuers of my life perish.” Every stubborn pursuer of your destiny and who followed you to Graceland, like Pharaoh perished in the red sea with his chariots and his choice captains, let all your stubborn pursuers perish in Jesus Name, Amen. You will see them no more.

The Scripture says, “With God, nothing shall be impossible” (Luke 1:37, Mark 10:27). Listen to this, if your story remains the same, it is not God’s fault. I have come to share to you the mind of God. Listen to this, with men, it is impossible but not with God, however, God did not say, “By God, nothing shall be impossible.” God did not say, “By God”. It is not a mistake what He said. It was, “With God, nothing shall be impossible.” Of course, God can do anything by Himself; the Bible says, He stretched the heavens and spread it abroad all alone, he spread it like a canopy by Himself. What does that mean? It means God won’t do it, not because He can’t do it, it is that God won’t do it without you. It is His principle. You can’t do it without Him and He won’t do it without you.

God won’t do it without you and you can’t do it without Him. The word “can’t” for you is that you don’t have the ability. The word “won’t” means, it’s not that God doesn’t have the ability but he ‘won’t’ do it without your cooperation and you don’t have the ability to do it without Him. Even Jesus in his human flesh said the same thing, “Of Myself, I can do nothing” (John 5:30). Friend, that miracle you need, God wants you to do something. A lot of times, we leave all things to God and say, “God if you want to do it, do it. My life is in your hands, do it as you like.” Remember, it is ‘With God,’ not ‘by God’. You have a role to play.

Prophet Adio talked so much about Faith yesterday. Faith is, “God said it, I believe it, it is mine” – that is faith. As much as God has said it, then it is mine. Faith is not passive, i.e. inactive. You don’t just sit down and say, “Well, if it is time, God will do it and if He doesn’t want to do it, He is God.” ‘With God,’ there has to be a cooperation between you and God. You must agree with him. Look through the Scriptures, you will always see that Faith has commands. You want to operate in faith? You have to obey faith’s commands (Matthew 14:36). In Matthew 14:36, people begged Jesus to touch the hem of his garment but in the end, it was not everybody who touched the hem of his garment. Some people were just inactive, “I won’t disturb God. God knows my situation and if He likes, He will come through.” You will always see some people who will exercise their faith and say, “Today is my day,” like Bartimaeus in Mark 10.

They told Bartimaeus to stop but he refused, because he knew that was the day of his destiny. When he heard Jesus passing by, he said, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me.” They told him to keep quiet, but he cried the more, he didn’t keep quiet. A closed mouth is a closed destiny. He said he won’t keep quiet. Look through the scripture, this is the only place that Jesus stood still. Faith made Jesus to stand still. In Acts 37 also, when Stephen exercised that courage, the Bible says Jesus stood up where he was sitting at the right hand side of God. Look, Faith is action. In Matthew 12:13, there was a man with a crippled hand and Jesus told him to stretch out his hand… you have to obey the command of faith to see the reward of faith. Jesus told the man to stretch out his hand, he stretched it and the withered hand was restored. Friends, there is something you need to do.

Jesus already paid it all; paid for your healing, deliverance and financial freedom. Friends, I want to tell you, Jesus has redeemed you. He has redeemed you from that situation – from sickness, diseases, oppression, poverty, premature death, affliction, death, etc. Hallelujah! What do you need to do? You need to obey the command of faith. You need to act and say, “This is not my portion. I reject this sickness. I reject diabetes, high blood pressure, leukemia, affliction, poverty, cancer, etc.” Every act of faith is an obedience to a command, you’ve got to obey and you’ve got to act.

 

Prayer Points

  1. Say: Jesus said it, I believe it, it is mine. I don’t know your particular situation. A lot of people get angry unnecessarily and fight with people but fail to get angry with and fight Satan. They know how to shout at people outside but keep shut in the presence of God. Are you tired of that situation? You have to pray these prayer points with the whole of your heart. Say it after me: Father, I am tired of this situation (mention them), you have redeemed me from this challenge, I refuse it and I go to where you have placed me.

 

Call to Salvation

Some say, “When I am ready, I will be serious with God. Save myself and become a Christian.” Nobody can save himself except Jesus saves him. Are you here and you want God to save you? It must be with God. You must be ready as God is ready. You and God! Jesus says, “Come, you that labour and are heavy-laden.” You have to come, then He will save you. With God, nothing shall be impossible. You have been struggling with that sin and you want God to save you? Pray: Jesus, I cannot save myself. Save me from destruction, I don’t want this sin to destroy my life. Put your left hand on your chest and say, “Jesus, save my soul. I cannot save myself. I don’t want to be ruined. Save me.” Thank you, Jesus.

 

Lift up your right hand wherever you are: As you have come to this place this morning, my Father, I am asking, when you visit a person, the person does not remain the same, Lord Jesus, let there be divine visitation in the name of Jesus. Whatever trouble that has followed you to this place are burned forever. Satan, you have no power over these ones again in the name of Jesus. Let every burden be lifted up in the name of Jesus. Thank you, Father, blessed be your name. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.
