We will be continuing our Series: From Lockdown to Leaping Up – Part 5

Our Foundational Bible Text as you all know is in Acts of Apostles Chapter 3 Verse 1 to 8.

We won’t read that again since we have read it several times.

But we will want to read a Supporting Bible Text in Genesis 28: 10-22.


10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.

11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.

19 And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.

20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,

21 So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God:

22 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

The last time that we spoke about Leaping Up from Lockdown (Specifically: From Lockdown to Leaping Up – Part 4); we discussed that the issue of our High can I leap.

And we told you that: If it is the Almighty God that is lifting you up; the Sky does not have to be your Limit; it is Heaven itself that will be your Limit.

DMC NOTE: We can readily access our Exclusive Rights of Coverage to the Full Text of the Series: FROM LOCKDOWN TO LEAPING UP – PART 4 on the link.

I’m sure that by now; you will be wondering: What has this Passage got to do with Leaping Up from Lockdown?

Well, I will go straight to the Point:

  1. Before you Take Off; you must consider the Landing.

If you are going to fly an Aeroplane; it is very easy to Take Off – Ask the Pilot.

They will tell you that Taking Off is not a Big Deal – You land the Plane on the Run Way; Start the Engine, Put the Engine into Full Force, Set the Ball Rolling and when the Plane gets to a Particular Speed; you put certain things, they put the Pedal or whatever is it, Joystick or whatever and the Plane will Take Off.

But Landing is an entirely different Story.

And before you Take Off; before you begin to Leap; you must consider Landing.

Why? – Ecclesiastes 7:8 says that: Better is the End of a thing than the Beginning thereof.

It is far, far better to remain Ordinary than to become an Ex-Successful.

If you will just stay in your quiet corner, an “Ordinary Person”; nobody knows you; you have made no Impact anywhere – That is better than to “Used to be Successful”.

Never owing a car, joining buses when you want to move from one (1) Place to the other; Thanking God for Life is better than to used to have your own car, to used to have a Driver driving you and then all of a sudden to have no more Vehicle(s) to be called your own.

When you go to the Bus Stop and they stepped on you and you say: Ha, ha; can’t you see that you are stepping on me?

They will say: You don’t want to be stepped on; what are you doing at the Bus Stop?

You will say: It is not your fault.

It is my Prayer for everyone of you listening to me today or reading on the Label of DMC now: You will never be an Ex-Champion – Amen!

Now, why must you settle the issue of Landing before you Take Off?

There is a Popular Saying that says: One of the Most Dangerous Things that can ever happened to a Man is to be Successful before they are ready!

The Bible is Full of Examples – Let me take one (1) or two (2).

  1. In 2 Chronicles 26: 3-21; the Bible tells us the Story of a boy who became a King at the age of sixteen (16) – He was sixteen (16) years old when he became a King.

And things was going on very well – Prosperity here, Power here and everything.

But because he wasn’t ready before he succeeded; he ended up a Leper!

  1. I will take another example that I’m sure that you are familiar with – The Story of Ephraim and Manasseh found in Genesis 48: 8-20.

When Joseph brought his two (2) sons – That is Ephraim and Manasseh to his father for a father’s blessing. And he Placed Manasseh the first (1st) born where the Right Hand of the father will land; Ephraim the second (2nd) born where the Left Hand will land because Manasseh was the first (1st) born.

The father crossed his hands – Placed his Right Hand on the head of the Younger (Ephraim) and the Left Hand on the Older (Manasseh).

When Joseph tried to intervened; the father said: I know what I’m doing – The Younger (Ephraim) is going to be far, far Greater than the Elder (Manasseh). And he blessed them.

By the time we get to Deuteronomy 33:17; the Bible tells us that Ephraim has Prospered ten (10) Times more than his brother Manasseh.

But the Prosperity entered into his head – The Prosperity became an Idol to him!

So, by the time we get to Hosea 4:17; the Almighty God said: Ephraim has joined himself to Idols; leave him alone.

But then God said in Hosea 5:9 that: Ephraim shall be Desolate.

The Bible says in Luke 14: 28-30 that: Before you build a House; you should sit down and count the Cost.

The Taller the Tower is going to be; the deeper must be the Foundation!

Before you begin to Leap; before you begin to Plan for Great Things, Mighty Things that will come to you after this Lockdown; Please Think!

Why I’m I saying this now?

As a matter of fact; if there is a way of Preaching this Sermon just to my “Own Children” alone; that is what I should have done.

Not because I’m Selfish but occasionally; there are things you say only to your children that annoyed Outsiders.

And you keep saying: I’m not talking to you; I’m talking to my children. But now Lockdown has made the door open to everybody.

My Beloveth Children; Success is Coming your Way – Amen!

… And I mean Big One – Amen!

You say: How do you know sir?

Well, Isaiah 3:10 says: Say ye to the Righteous, it shall be well with them.

Colossians 1:27 says: Christ in you, the Hope of Glory!

And then a Prophesy came through one of my sons that I have known for a long time to be without any doubt a Prophet of the Most High God.

And the Prophesy is based on Judges 14: 5-14.

It is the Story of Samson who wanted to take one of the daughter of the Philistines for a wife.

As he was going, he was attacked by a lion. He tore the lion into two (2) and he went to the In-laws house.

Some days later, when he was Passing by; he saw that some bees had already made a house inside the lion and they have Produced some Honey. So, he took some Honey from the carcass of the Lion and ate it.

When he got to the In-laws house this time around; he threw a Riddle to those who came to rejoice with him.

And said: Could you tell me the meaning of the Riddle? – OUT OF THE EATER, FOOD HAS COME!

The Almighty God spoke to this my son and said: Out of the Lockdown; Mighty Breakthroughs will come to His Children – Amen!

Now, let us now go back to our Bible Text in Genesis 28: 10-22.

Jacob was running away from home after receiving the Blessings from his father.

And some People will say: How can now God meet somebody like that on the Way and Promise him tremendous Blessings?

They will say: How can God bless a thief who has just stolen his brother’s Blessings?

  1. Well to start with: God said: I am talking to you as the God of your father Abraham!

… God took him all the way back to the root.


Now Genesis 12: 1-3 says:

I. That is a Man that God called.

II. That is a Man that God Promised that: I will bless you, I will make your name Great, I will bless all those who bless you et cetera et cetera.

So, God says to this Young Man who was worn out from running from his brother and say: Hey, I am the God of your father Abraham.

… He (God) didn’t even start with Isaac.

He said: The Promise that I made to Abraham; I hand it over to you.

Now, Thank God that in Galatians 3: 13-14; the Bible says: Those of us who are Christians are also of the “Seed of Abraham” and the Blessings of Abraham will be ours!

  1. Jacob didn’t Steal – He bought his brother’s Blessings.

You need to Pay attention to that because it is very important!

You see; in the Olden Days there is what they called: TRADE BY BARTER

In those days; they didn’t have what we call Currency – So, if you have Potato and I have Lamb.

You want meat and I want Potato; we will just Exchange – You will give me Potato and I will give you my Lamb.

… It is called Trade by Barter!

In Genesis 25: 29-34; Esau said: I want food, Jacob said I want the Birthright of the first (1st) Born.

Is it ok by you?

Esau said: No Problem; who cares about Birthright? Just give me food!

… So, this man didn’t Steal, he bought.

And the Word of God is clear on the issue of Trade by Barter:

I. Luke 6:38 says: You Give, you shall be Given.

II. Proverbs 11: 24-25 says: There is he that scattereth and yet increaseth

It says: The Liberal Soul shall be made fat.

… You Trade by Barter!

III. Ecclesiastes 11:3 says: If you load the Cloud, finally it will give you back rain.

IV. John 3:16 says: For God so love the world; He gave His Only Begotten Son. That whoever believeth in Him will not Perish but will have Everlasting Life.

… God has Only One Begotten Son, He wants many more children.

So, by Trade by Barter, He released His Only Begotten Son to the world and today according to Romans 8:29; the Only Begotten Son has become the first (1st) Born of many Brethren.

So, where is the Trade by Barter here?

God said to this Young Man (Jacob): I want to be your Partner; I will be with you; I will Prosper you and you will be Great.

What do you say Young Man (Jacob)?

The Young Man (Jacob) says: You offer me that? – I Promise You everything that You give me; I will Pay my Tithe; I will be like my dad because I know from my dad that in Genesis 14: 17-20; my dad Paid Tithe to the King of Salem.

So, when you hear People talking about Tithe being the Law; Moses wasn’t born when Abraham gave Tithe; he wasn’t born when Jacob made a Vow.


Now, there are those who will say: Of course everything that is in Malachi 3: 8-11 – They will tell you that: No, No; they are under the Law. God was speaking only to the “Seeds of Abraham”.

No Argument!

Except that when you now read Galatians 3:29; the Bible says that: If you are a Christian then you are of the “Seed of Abraham”!

So, Jacob said to God: Let us be Partners; I agree with Your Offer.

If You will just be with me, You do what You said – You Prospered me, You take me High; I also will be a very “Good Boy”.

And then what happened to Jacob?

Let us see the results of that little discussion:

When you read Genesis 32: 9-10 – When he (Jacob) was Praying on his way back home; he said to God: When I was Crossing this Place – The Last Time I was Crossing this Place; I had only my Staff with me. That was all I had!

Now, I’m returning with two (2) Bands!

I have Good News for someone listening to me today or reading now on the Label of DMC: You entered this Lockdown with Nothing. By this time Next Year; as my God lives; you won’t even be able to recognise yourself – Amen!

How did it happened?

Well, in Genesis 30: 27-43 – Laban who was the Number One (1) “419 Man” said to Jacob after he had dribbled him here and there over who is to marry and who not to marry.

The boy wanted to marry one (1); Laban made sure he ended up with four (4) – Funny fellow Laban!

DMC NOTES: Below are the Full details of the Names of the four (4) wives that Jacob ended up with the full names of the twelve (12) children from the four (4) wives:

Jacob is said to have had twelve (12) sons by four (4) women – His wives are Leah and Rachel and his concubines are Bilhah and Zilpah – Who were, in order of their birth: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, and Benjamin – All of whom became the heads of their own family groups, later known.

He now said to Jacob: What do you want to be your Wages? Just tell me what you want me to Pay you for serving me?

Because since you came; things has been Picking up Mightily here.

Jacob said: Let us reach an Agreement:

  1. Every Animals that is born that is either Speckled or Ringstraked or Spotted – Let that be my Salary.
  2. The one that comes out normal – He said we will leave that for you.

He (Laban) said I agreed!

What he (Laban) didn’t know according to Genesis 31: 1-13 is that God has already shown something to Jacob in a Dream.

He said that anytime the animals conceived; he will have a Dream and he will see that the Male Animals Fertilising the Females are either Spotted or Speckled or Ringstraked.

… God showed him (Jacob) that in a Vision.

And so the boy Practicalised what God showed him in a Vision.

Anytime the animals come to drink and he knows that they are about to be Pregnant; he will get some Popular Trees, make Spots and Sprays and then everything and laid it before the animals.

Do you know that: If you make God your Partner; every Night that you sleep He will show you in a Dream the Business that will baffled the world!

He will show you what not to do – All you need do is to wake up and begin to do it!

Practical Life Experience:

  1. I’m sure that you have heard the Story of s man who was a Manager in his Place of work.

And he says: Almighty God, for how long will I continue to say Yes sir, Yes sir? – I Pay my Tithe!

And God said: No Problem; I will give you just one (1) Idea.

I want you to begin to roast Peanut.

But when you are roasting your own Peanut; add Honey.

Nobody did it before him – He could have asked God: Honey with Peanut?

Some years later; when the President of America was being Sworn-In and they had a Party for the President – It was the roasted Peanut of this Man that they served there.

By the Last Time that I heard about him; he already has two (2) Private Jets.

… Just one (1) Idea.

  1. Oh, you say that is far off – I know one (1) Young Man; you have heard me say this before.

He had his Qualifications but couldn’t get a Job.

And God gave him an Idea – This boy was s very “Good Cook”.

So, he put some money together, got one little corner on the Street of Lagos and began to roast Akara (Beans Cake).

Out of curiosity, People will stop and say: What is going on here?

They will buy the Akara (Beans Cake) and say this is serious and they began to tell their friends.

From the money he made – He bought one (1) Motorcycle. After sometimes, he bought the Second (2nd) Motorcycle.

The fellow who has no Job become an Employer of Labours!

I can tell you other Stories of People who choose to make God their Partners and they get “Divine Inspirations” that turned them to something entirely different.

Consider Jacob before I begin to round up.

When Jacob came to Egypt in Genesis 46: 26-27; the Bible says: He came to Egypt with seventy (70) Souls including the children of Joseph that were already there.

By the time he left Egypt – He was Lockdown in Egypt for quite a while.

By the time his children left Egypt; in Exodus 12:37; there were six hundred thousand (600,000) Men – Nothing counting Women and Children.

I don’t know how Great you are now? – But you can become a Nation – Amen.

God can Multiply you so Mightily that the world will say: We have never seen this kind before!

However, I need to warn you before you say: Alright I understand – I will make God my Partner.

You need to understand that if you make God your Partner; He will not be a “Junior Partner” – He will be your “Senior Partner”.

If you allow Him to step into your Boat; He will become the CEO (Chief Executive Officer).

… If you don’t believed me: Ask Peter in Luke 5: 1-11.

You allow Him to step into your Boat; not only will He Prospered you to such an extent that you will be frightened; He will move you to a Higher Ground!

I will close with just one (1) Story that you have heard before:

Several Years ago; I was visiting America; attending a Conference.

And on the Particular Night in the Conference that the Organisers want to raise money.

And before they started; there was this Young Man who called his wife forward and they went to the Altar and he asked the Organisers to give him Permission to speak.

And he announced to us and said: Brethren, Please I want you to do something today.

There are about seventeen thousand (17,000) of us there.

I want you to give generously and the reason is because whatever all of you give that is what my wife and I will give.

And we said: What are you saying?

He said: I will Match everything you give Dollar for Dollar.

And we all said that this Man is finished.

Those who don’t want to give before now said we will give to make sure we get him into trouble.

God have Mercy on Christians – Amen!

Seventeen Thousand (17,000) People gave beyond their “Normal Giving Ability”.

At the end, he says we should Please wait because he wanted the whole money counted.

They counted it and they counted Three Million, Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($3,500,000).

We said that: You are in trouble now!

He took the Microphone and said: Brethren, is this all you can do?

So, I said this Man must know something that I don’t know!

At the end of the Program, I made sure that I cornered him: Sir, what is your Secret?

And he said: Five (5) Years ago; I started a Business with Five Hundred Dollars ($500) and I said to God: You will be my “Senior Partner” – I will not insult You with ten Percent (10%). I will take ten Percent (10%); You will take Ninety Percent (90%).

.. But it is up to You – it is Your Business!

He said that Last Year, my Company made a Turnover of Fifty Million Dollars ($50,000,000).

… He said that I know what I’m doing!

I said Thank You very much – I don’t need to say more than that!


Some People see how the Almighty God has been Gracious to me and they like to open their mouth and say all kinds of things.

… It is none of my Business. I don’t need to answer you!

I just need to be riding High with my King!

I’m talking to my children o. So, others should not be angry with me.



Like I said; if you want to invite Him into your Business; He will not be your “Junior Partner” – He will be your “Senior Partner”. As soon as He comes in; He will take over!

Those of you who has not even surrendered your Life to Him; before you ask Him to come and be your “Senior Partner”; you better surrender to Him now.

When you called on Him to be your Lord and Saviour, He won’t be Lord at all unless He will be the Lord of All.

If you say: Save my Soul, take over my Life – He will take over everything.

You will be coming under an entirely New Management; His Words will become your Law and whatever He says; you must begin to do it.

So, think deeply before you say: Lord I surrender to You!

Let me assure you: You surrender to Him; you will never regret it!

So, those of you who are Listening to me or reading now on the Label of DMC and you want to surrender your Lives to Jesus Christ; Please go ahead and call on Him now.

And say: Please Lord, Come and be my Lord; Come and be my Saviour – I agree to serve you for the rest of my Life.

And the rest of us; let us intercede for these People for just one (1) minute – That the Almighty God will receive them; He will save their Souls and bring them into the Family of God and give them a New Beginning.

Intercede for them for one (1) minute and then call on the Almighty God for yourself and say: Father, I surrender All – Be my “Senior Partner”; Control everything that I shall do from now (Every Project, every Business).

Everything that I shall do from now; be my “Senior Partner”.

Thank You Father.

In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.


My Father and my God; I want to Thank You once again for Your Words and I want to Thank You for all Your Children who have heard the Words and have made up their minds concerning You.

I’m asking that for those who are just surrendering their Lives to You today; that You will Please receive them; Save their Souls; Let Your Blood wash away their sins; be the Lord of All in their Lives; give them a Brand New Beginning.

And Please Lord God Almighty; as many that will say: Lord be my “Senior Partner”; within a Year – Embarrass them with Your Blessings.

And I Pray Lord that the Higher they go; let them be drawn closer to You.

In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
