THEME: PERFECT JUBILEE
MINISTERING: PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE
DATE: 5TH AUGUST, 2022
BIBLE TEXT: DEUTERONOMY 8:11-20
Let someone shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah.
I hope you enjoyed your Prayer Walk?
Did you Pray or you walked?
God will answer you by Fire – Amen.
Now we want to Sing the Special Hymn for the Convention.
The Tune is the same as: There is a Land that is fairer than day.
RCCG 2022 ANNUAL CONVENTION HYMN.
- I was born a free moral agent
Free to choose either wrong things or right
Through my sins became slave to Satan
Jesus bought me back through Salvation.
Jubilee from above
All I lost to me now shall recover
Jubilee from on high
Join me as I sing Hallelujah.
- Since wages of sin all round death is
Disease, physical pain and distress
But Jesus took stripes on Calvary
By His stripes I was healed, wholesomely.
- And with my sins came mental darkness
Light of God I could not again see
Jesus broke through the darkness for me
I was blind but, o yes, now I see.
- Sorrows of hell once overwhelmed me
I was sinking deeper all the time
Jesus brought Salvation unto me
And its joy erupted within me.
- Once without any hope for future
Nothing but a very dark picture
Christ came in to me and now I see
Nothing but a great hope of glory.
- I was helpless but now empowered
By His Spirit above on me poured
I can witness cast out bad spirits
Raise the dead and heal all that are sick.
- All I have lost have been recovered
All I missed I can get fully back
My story can now be rewritten
For me a great bright New Beginning.
- That is why I sing Hallelujah
Hallelujah to God the Father
Hallelujah to King Jesus Christ
Hallelujah to Blessed Holy Spirit.
- Sing Hallelujah with me brothers
Sing Hallelujah with me sisters
Sing Hallelujah with me children
Sing together and make heavens ring.
… Let’s go ahead and shout a Big Hallelujah – HALLELUJAH.
- After this Morning Session we will go for Break and return by 2pm for the Afternoon Session (For Testimonies).
- Then we will go for another Break and return by 7pm.
You should be seated by 7pm because there will be a thirty (30) minutes Praise Session.
Then our Continental Overseers will begin to Present their Report.
Alright! Praise the Lord – Hallelujah!
11 Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:
12 Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;
13 And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;
14 Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;
15 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;
16 Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;
17 And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
18 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
19 And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely Perish.
20 As the Nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD your God.
We started yesterday by looking at Psalms 103:1-5 – Where David said: Bless the LORD, O my Soul: and all that is within me, bless his Holy Name. Bless the LORD, O my Soul, and forget not all His benefits:
So we spoke yesterday on the issue of Gratitude – Blessing the One Who needs nothing.
We saw: “Bless the Lord O my Soul” as an Advice, as a Plea. Telling our Soul, even though Life is tough we should still be Grateful.
We also said it could be a Command: we have already made up our Mind to Bless the Lord.
We spoke about all that is within us, and we included: our Voice box, Memory, Reasoning, Understanding etc.
And we mentioned all the things we are to Bless God for and not forget all His Benefits.
It is on the issue of forgetting that we want to emphasize on this Morning.
As we look at the issue of INGRATITUDE.
In the Bible Text that we read – Deuteronomy 8:11:20; God said: I am going to Multiply you and you are going to Increase.
But, if you ever forget that I am the One doing this, and you begin think it is your Power, Wisdom, Ability that has brought you this far, then you will know He is a Jealous God.
Like some People would say, “I built this Church all by myself. I started this Branch. So it is my Church.”
Remember, no one will share in His Glory.
You can even hear some Pastors say: “This is my Church; I have laboured forty (40), thirty (30), twenty (20) years; let no General Overseer come and chase me out.”
As if it is not written in Matthew 16:18 – And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this Rock I will build my Church; and the gates of hell shall not Prevail against it.
He is the One in Charge now that you are riding a car, built two (2) houses – One here in Camp and another one in your Village; have what to eat, house full of so much food;
He says if you ever forget, I will show you that I can make an unmake!
I remembered that I told you this Story: a long time ago – I had Fasted, Prayed walking round this Camp for God’s Increase. And then at the end of the day (as a Human Being) I was talking to my Daddy: I said Daddy, with all these Labour, Nobody said “Thank You.”
He said: My son, are you complaining that they didn’t Thank You?
I said: Yes Daddy. He said, have they said “Thank You” to Me? Are they showing their Gratitude to Me their God?
Don’t you have to put Pressure on them before they shout Hallelujah to me?
But I will tell you again and again what happened in Lekki ’98 – Our biggest Outing up to that Point.
After that Program, I was walking round this Camp Praying and Thanking God for the Success of that Program. And then I got to a Particular Spot:
… I still remembered that Particular Spot where He spoke to me: And I think we should mark that Spot where God spoke to me.
Suddenly He said: Son, bend down. I bent down. He said, draw on the sand a figure of a man. I bent down, drew zero for the head, strokes for the hands and legs. And He asked me to stand up. I stood up! He said, “Wipe the figure out”.
I Pray that God will visit you before the end of this Ministers’ Conference and Convention – Amen.
And then He spoke: “You are that figure. If you ever forget who is in Charge, I will wipe you out, Nobody will remember you ever existed.”
Today there are Prophets who write to me telling me what God said concerning me. I take their Prophecies to God – “Are You the One Who sent them?”
…I don’t do anything that would offend my Daddy.
I Pray for everyone of you – You will never displease God – Amen.
Because, once God is happy with you, let the whole world be against you, you will win. But if God is against you, no matter the number of People with you, you will never win.
If you forget all that God has done for you, there are certain things that follow:
- You may begin to treat His Commandments with levity.
… Let me hear you say: GOD FORBID!
In 1 Samuel 15:1-3, God sent King Saul on an errand – Thus saith the LORD of Hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
God said to King Saul, I waited all these years and I made you King so that you can lead my People to war – Go and utterly and destroy them all.
But King Saul did what Pleased Him – He obeyed God to a certain level and he stopped. Just like some of us do!
Even Pastors go to Church at their convenience. Ministers pay their Tithe as if God does not know Mathematics.
They say: “My Tithe has been deducted from Source.” What about the Gifts you receive? You think God does not see?
Then the Almighty God said, Oga King Saul, I made you. You were a Nobody; you yourself knew it. The day you were to be anointed you hid yourself, because you knew you were not worthy. But I made you worthy.
We even heard some People say “Without me this Parish would have closed down;” “If not for my Support, that Church Project would not have succeeded.”
As a General Overseer I have seen many People who think that without them, the work of God would not have been done.
… The Church of God is Marching On!
Some People think if the General Overseer dies today, something would happen to the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) – Na lie! The Church will move forward.
Remember the Name of the Church is – The Redeemed Christian Church of GOD (RCCG) and not “the Redeemed Christian Church of ADEBOYE.”
How many of you believe our tomorrow will be alright? – DMC FAMILY BELIEVE!
If you believe, shout Hallelujah- Hallelujah.
When King Saul forgot, he began to treat the Commandments of God with levity.
- If you forget, you begin to treat His Anointed with levity.
I mean, if you are treating God with levity, who then is His Anointed?
In 1 Samuel 15:24-29, when Prophet Samuel has delivered the Message of God to King Saul, he said:
Now therefore, I Pray thee, Pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship the LORD. And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel. And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the skirt of his mantle, and it rent.
… When you forget, you begin to treat God’s Anointed with levity.
One fellow said, “I built this Church. So who is the General Overseer?” He is Nobody. And he is correct!
But he has forgotten that somebody was the Vessel God used to Anoint him.
If all of a sudden you forget Who made you a Minister – It is not “The Anointed” you treated with levity; it is the One Who called the Prophet. He is called “The Strength of Israel”.
Psalms 105:15, says: Touch not mine Anointed, and do my Prophets no harm.
- If you forget, you are likely to lose your Position. – Very important!
When you read the Story in 2 Samuel 11, where David when comfort came, when he was sleeping when he was supposed to be at the battlefield;
He walked up and down, saw someone’s wife bathing naked in the corner of the house. He used his Position as a King to bring her to his house, defiled her and she became Pregnant.
He sent for the husband, cause him to be drunk. And that one, even in his drunken state refused to go home and sleep with his wife. And when King David saw that his secret was about to be exposed, he arranged for the death or the man.
And to cover his sin of Murder, he married the Widow. He thought Nobody saw him but God was watching.
… And He is watching you!
And so in 2 Samuel 12; God sent a Prophet to David – God said to him: And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee King over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul; And I gave thee thy Master’s house, and thy Master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.
And I hope you will always remember this – If you ever get to that Stage where God begins to tell you all He has done for you, then you are in trouble.
Because, you should be the one Thanking Him – but you forgot. You have suddenly become a “Big Man”. You can no longer sing, dance and Praise God.
I have told you this Story before – I was traveling with my driver to Ibadan. I already Prayed in my room, I Prayed in the car before we took off. God spoke to me, “when was the last time we had Fellowship?”
I said Lord, early this Morning we had Fellowship. I Prayed before embarking on this Journey. And then he said, you know what I am talking about.
… Do you think you can deceive God?
God said, do you remembered those days when you used to Worship me while driving and I will join you in the car and you would need to pull over?
He said son, when was the last time that happened?
I said Lord, I now have a driver. He said, so it’s my fault for blessing you with a driver? I said Lord have Mercy on me; let me return from this Journey safely and I will never miss Fellowship with You again.
And I still remembered that night till today – I moved to the Old Auditorium ( now what we call the Children Auditorium) rolled on the floor and began to Worship:
SINGING: Only Jesus can save, Only Jesus can save Hallelujah.
… You said that casual Song, but it comes from the Citadel of your Soul.
I have not sang up to three (3) times; when He came down. And when God comes down you will know.
You will have Perfect Jubilee because your Ingratitude is going to end – Amen.
Remember, Jubilee is a Personal Matter; it is for individuals.
When you are Ungrateful, just as you could have Permanent Glory, there is something caked Permanent Bondage – And Ingratitude is top on the list if those who will be in Permanent Bondage.
Because when God discovers you are an Ingrate, He will abandon you.
The Yoruba Elders have a saying – “He that is shown Kindness but refuse to give Thanks is like an armed robber.”
Judges 16:1-end; tells you the Summary of the last days of Samson.
Samson was not just to enjoy Jubilee, but he was to bring Jubilee to Israel as a Deliverer.
Search his Life, never once did that boy say: “Thank You” to God.
A Lion roar, the Presence of God came upon him he tore the Lion.
Before his enemies could get to him, with the jawbone of an Ass, he overpowered them.
… I will be talking to you briefly about “The Jawbone of a Cow” during this Ministers’ Conference.
Samson didn’t Thank God for once.
A whole City shut its gate against him, Power came, he uprooted the gate. Yet, he never said Thank You!
That’s why he died blind – He Prayed for the Lord to restore his sight (so he could take his revenge). That’s why he died blind and Perished with Idol Worshippers.
Consider King Saul, in 1 Samuel 16:14: But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil Spirit from the LORD troubled him.
Don’t forget, God is the Commander in Chief of Heaven and Hell – He commands demons and the demons obey!
King Saul was a Madman sitting on the Throne, seeking to destroy David.
When you look at the sins of David versus the sins of King Saul; you are bound to ask Questions.
What was the fault of King Saul? – He obeyed God partially.
The Bible says in Revelation 3:15-16; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Any Minister who does not want to be removed by God must be Hot.
I know if all our Ministers are here and not all are going to Heaven, it’s of no use.
Some are neither hot nor cold.
If you know you are not going to be hot, remove the Title now.
I am only interested in those who will be Commando’s for God; those who will be one Hundred Percent (100%) hit always.
The sin of King Saul was half obedience – He was lukewarm.
What was the sin of David? – It was Adultery, Murder, Hypocrisy.
And yet when the Man of God told David in 2 Samuel 12:7 – And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul;
He repented immediately, “you mean God said all these things?” And almost immediately, the Man of God said in 2 Samuel 12:13 – And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.
Why? What was it that God saw? He saw a boy who was Grateful. He saw a boy who said in Psalms 24:1, I will bless the LORD at all times: his Praise shall continually be in my mouth.
You see, just as Ingratitude can keep you in Permanent Bondage; Persistent Gratitude can get you more than a New Beginning.
Because Jubilee is Restoration and New Beginning.
In 2 Chronicles 1:6-12, Solomon after a thousand burnt Offerings to God – saying Thank You. I don’t deserve to be King. My father is a Murderer, a mother an Adultress.
When God asked him what he wanted, he said Wisdom. And God granted him more than what he requested.
Solomon did not stop there – In 2 Chronicles 7:1-15, this time round, he offered Twenty two Thousand (22,000) Offerings. If I gave a thousand burnt Offerings the last time, now I am saying Twenty two Thousand (22,000) Thank You. Plus one hundred and twenty thousand more Thank You!
God said alright! If I ever get angry; 2 Chronicles 7:14 – If my People, which are called by my Name, shall humble themselves, and Pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their Land.
… Take Note of that!
“My People”. If only those of us in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) are Grateful People, the Problems in Nigeria will be solved!
Some of my friends have said, Daddy, call all the Christians in Nigeria to Fast and Pray for Nigeria. Are you kidding me? What of those that are not Pentecostal?
I have called a Meeting before – Let’s Intercede for our Nation Nigeria. Not for a whole day. Say four (4) hours (10am to 2pm). Oga Bishop, you are to lead the Prayer for Thirty (30) Minutes. And you, Evanglist, you are also to lead the People to Pray.
The People who were to lead didn’t turn up. Only Members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) showed up.
But God says in Ezekiel 22:30 – And I sought for a Man among them, that should make up the hedge, and Stand in the gap before me for the Land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
Some of us now are shaking with what is going on in Nigeria. I said so, but no one Paid attention until they said Churches must close down in Nigeria.
If God can find Grateful People among the Ministers of God gathered here today or reading now on the Label of DMC; He would hear and heal our Land – Amen.
Some of you are already saying, Daddy, let’s do something else this Morning – We have Praised God enough Last Night.
Well, today we are going to Praise Him again for another Thirty (30) Minutes.
Of course, I know it’s not everybody who would do it. But if I can just get ten Percent (10%) of you Praising God genuinely, something will happen.
So I am going to give you an opportunity – Give you another Thirty (30) Minutes to Praise the Lord.
To do it (Praise God) as if your Life depends on it.
If real trouble starts in Nigeria, you have no Places you can run to. Some Men of God are advising their Members to have Plan B – So they can check out.
Adeboye is not checking out!
Because the Holy Spirit will take Control.
Also, I have never seen Light running from darkness.
So, if something is going to be wrong with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG); the Fire of God will burn them.
But we must settle with God.
Judges 16:20 – And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him.
When Samson said, “I will go out as at other times before,” he did not know God has left him.
Why did God leave? – INGRATITUDE!
I have said it again and again, if you ask a Student to make his Scripts, he will score himself One Hundred Percent (100%).
How grateful are you?
In the next Thirty (30) Minutes, everyone of us have to Praise God – On your face, kneeling, walking. Just Praise Him.
… And don’t forget to drop your Offering in your way out.
GOD BLESS YOU!
