RCCG 2022 MINISTERS’ CONFERENCE (DAY 2 EVENING SESSION)
THEME: PERFECT JUBILEE
MINISTERING: PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE
DATE: 5TH AUGUST, 2022
BIBLE TEXT: REVELATION 2:1-7
King of Glory, we give You Thanks, we give You Adoration. We want to say Thank You!
Once again we Thank You for opening our Understanding to Ingratitude. We Thank You for Grace, for Restoration. Thank You for Jubilee.
Please, accept our Thanks, in Jesus’ Name.
Father, Please, continue with us!
In Jesus’ Mighty Name we have Prayed- Amen.
Let Somebody shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah.
- All those who will be Ministering with us during the Convention, your Fasting and Prayer begins tomorrow (Saturday, 6th August 2022) and it will end next week Saturday (13th August 2022).
So all those of you who would be Ministering with us, I tell you, that is the Pattern.
… And so, your Fasting begins tomorrow (Saturday, 6th of August 2022).
This will help you Succeed, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
Let me give you a hint: As you will also learn during this Ministers’ Conference-; we are expecting the Anointing of God to flow like a Mighty River.
… I am sure and I am not saying this to frighten you – That with the noise that has been made in Adverts; if Heaven knows we are congregating, Angels will come.
And if Hell knows we are going to have a Meeting, it is likely that one (1) or two (2) of his children will show up.
And so those of you here who are going to Minister, you must be Hot.
There is no room for Lukewarmness during this Convention – If you feel that you don’t have the ability to Fast, Please, when it’s time to Minister (and we will be Ministering) don’t join us.
I want you to be so Hot that sickness, diseases, demons will be roasted at your touch – Amen.
Don’t let me deceive you; if you join the Ministering Team during this Convention Unprepared, then Lord have Mercy on you!
How do they say it? – Half a word is enough for the Wise!
Several years ago, in America, one Pastor said, “I want to come to Africa and Minister with you.” We were at a Restaurant and I saw the way he was dealing with food (laughter). I said to him, “Please Sir, don’t come!” He said, what do you mean?
I have enough Problems dealing with the Congregation; I don’t want to waste time having to cast out demons after you have Ministered – Don’t come!
He looked at me surprised! I’m not the one saying it. Jesus said there are some demons that will not go out except with Prayer and Fasting.
… Say it loud and clear – Prayer and Fasting.
So if you know you cannot go through the Fire of Purification, don’t join us when it is time to lay hands during this Convention.
Some of you don’t take me serious, because I don’t shake and jerk whenever I am talking – That’s because God doesn’t shake and jerk when He is talking.
The Bible says you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall do what? – Set you free.
So, those of you who will Minister with us during this Convention, your Fasting begins when? – Tomorrow!
… I can’t hear you – Tomorrow!
God’s Grace will be Sufficient for you – Amen.
- Tomorrow morning you will get here by 7am to Worship God and Pray. I will join you by 8am. And then come with your Walking shoes.
Now the walking of tomorrow will not be different from that of today. Except for one thing, I might not even join you.
You know why?
Today, the crowd that was near me almost choked me. I saw several People! The People that were supposed to be around are People who are Seventy (70) years old. But I saw Teenagers.
So, if my Purpose of Walking is to communicate with God, I might not join. And if I decide to go, maximum number around me at all should be Twelve (12).
… How many People? – Twelve (12)! Say it louder – Twelve (12)!
I know you People are trying to Protect me; but the noise, the Pushing is much!
We need to wake up to know we are dealing with High Tension Spiritual Matters. You don’t build your house under a High Tension Wire.
Before Sunday (7th August 2022); every sands on this Camp Ground would be Fire – Amen.
No room for jokes! I won’t even tell you my route tomorrow.
So, if I decide to go for Prayer Walk – That is if Daddy says I should go at all; maximum People should be how many? – Twelve (12)!
God Bless you – Amen!.
1 Unto the Angel of the Church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
… This must be a wonderful Church.
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.
7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.
I am sure some of you would say, “I thought we are here to discuss Perfect Jubilee? What kind of Passage is this?
What did I tell you Jubilee means?
- New Beginning.
The moment you look at those two (2) words, you will notice something straight away:
- Restoration means, something has gone amiss and we are restoring it.
- A New Beginning means, you have messed it up, we are restoring you so that you can start again.
And here God is speaking to a very wonderful Church – The Church at Ephesus. A Church that had Sound Foundation, that had no room for fake Apostles, that had Patience, and for the Name of the Lord, they laboured. Wonderful Church!
But the Lord said, sorry ooo, you have failed in one Cardinal Point – YOU HAVE LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE.
We are going to start with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
We were known (and I believe we are still known) for Holiness – We were very, very strict.
Why? – Because Hebrews 12:14 says: Without Holiness, no man shall see God.
We want to see God! And we must be Holy – We are known for Holiness.
During our days, if a Pastor misbehaves – Commit adultery for example, if he is the one who confessed before we discovered, we have to discipline him.
And discipline in those days included cutting grass like a Prisoner.
Here in this Redemption Camp; one Pastor committed adultery, and for three (3) Months, he was cutting grass because we wants to see God.
How many of you want to see God on the last day? – THE DMC FAMILY MEMBERS!
So shall it be, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
Nobody came to us to beg for a Pastor who committed adultery; to beg for a Pastor who stole, or misused Church money; or for a Pastor who is Teaching false Doctrines.
We were known for Prayers.
Why? – Because Jesus says in John 14:14: If ye shall ask any thing in my Name, I will do it.
One man referred to our Prayers in those days as rain – When it rains, you will see clearly that it is raining.
One man Abroad saw us Praying and said: No wonder you are never sick here. He said, the exercise you do while Praying is enough to keep sickness away.
I know one of my friends in Ilorin (Kwara State Nigeria), when he is Praying, you better stay away from him, because he will be kicking while Praying. He happened to be a Boxer and he would be boxing.
So, if you stay close to him, his blow would land on you!
I have seen People spreading Pebbles on the ground, kneeling on it to Pray.:
There is no way I will fall asleep with my knees surrounded with Pebbles.
We Prayed! And I mean, we Prayed!!!
I have said before; the first time I was invited – My first Sunday in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). I was enjoying the Service, the singing, the dancing, etc.
Then it was time for Prayer. And as the Pastor that was to lead the Prayer came up – I still remembered the Pastor (Pastor Ogunnaike). As soon as he collected the Microphone and he said, “Jehovah Nla!” (Meaning: “Big Jehovah”) and the fellow next to me shouted “Amen!!!”
I nearly ran out of the Church – The Amen was so loud that even demons could not stay.
But today, even when we say, God bless you, you find it difficult to say Amen.
It will interest you to note: because we didn’t know the names of the Pastors, we used whatever is common with them to call them. And in my family, from that day on, we called that man “Jehovah Nla” (Big Jehovah).
I mean, we Prayed! And we are Praying but our Prayers shook the ground.
I could still remembered then at Ebute Meta (RCCG National Headquarters Parish), one day a Traditional Ruler can to worship with us. His Chiefs told themselves – “When they Pray, and they ask you to bow your head and close your eyes, don’t do so.” Because by the time they finished Praying, you will be the only one remaining.
That’s how we Prayed!
… Let me hear someone shout Fire – Fire!!!
We were known for Evangelism.
Why? – John 15:16 says: Ye have not Chosen me, but I have Chosen you, and Ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my Name, He may give it you.
We were committed to Evangelism, we were committed to Follow up.
I still remembered one situation very clearly – A Lady came to our Church.
Why? – Her mother had been sick and rejected by Specialist. She was sent home to die. Somebody told her, go to the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), when they ask for First Timer, indicate. Very soon they will come looking for you in your house.
As soon as she came out as a First Timer, we followed her home that day. We saw the mother, and we Prayed for her and the Lord healed her.
So, when I joined the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), there were Three (3) Basic Steps. And they are:
John 3:1-8, you must be Born Again.
I came to the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) and I had a Problem. I asked them to Pray. I had money and I was ready to Pay.
But they said: Give your Life to Jesus Christ.
What are we talking about? Pray for me, tell me how much to Pay you.
They kept hammering that I must give my Life to Jesus Christ.
They were not asking for my money but the Salvation of my Soul.
Thank God I gave my Life to Jesus Christ. And at that Point, my wife gave her Life to Jesus Christ on the same day!
… We are talking about the Issue of your First Love.
They had Sanctification – They called it Second Step. You must be Sanctified.
1 Thessalonians 4:3 says: For this is the Will of God, even your Sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
III. HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM.
You must be baptized in the Holy Spirit – They called it the Third Step.
2 Thessalonians 2:13 says: But we are bound to give Thanks alway to God for you, Brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning Chosen you to Salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the Truth:
Salvation, Sanctification and Baptism in the Holy Spirit – They hammered these Three (3) Points – and we embraced them.
You cannot join the Choir, the Ushering, even join the Work Force without Passing through these three (3) Steps.
You can’t become a Worker if you can’t tell us your Experience on these three (3) Points consequently because that was the Position of the Church at the beginning.
The Church operated in Great Power, not in Titles – Everybody was a Brother and a Sister back then.
Oh yes, we had Pastors (the Senior Pastor). Every other Sub-Ministers was just a Brother or a Sister.
But everyone of the Sub-Ministers were terror to the devil – We operated tremendous Power.
I need to tell you such Stories, because Jubilee is to restore us to our First Love, and to give us a New Beginning.
You have heard the Story of one of the Sub-Ministers, who went to Pastor in one of our Parishes in Ogun State and he got a room near the herbalist.
The herbalist no longer got Customers. And he discovered that they were now going to this boy who calls himself Pastor. And so, he decided to eliminate this Young Pastor the Magical way.
The Boy locked his door and windows, went to Church. When he returned, he saw a hen brooding over eggs.
And the Elders know the meaning of that one – Run for your Life! Because, if you bend to pick the hen, your back breaks. If you try to kick it, your leg is going to be Paralysed.
But my boy looked at the hen, said: God I Thank You! You know I don’t have money to buy chicken and you gave me one for free. You know it’s being long I ate eggs and you have Provided my need.
He said to the chicken – I cover you with the Blood of Jesus. Welcome to my dinning table!
Let somebody shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah
… That is where we were – Doing exploits for God!
And some of you are shaking when a witch says: “I will deal with you.”.
Another Spiritual child of mine went to start a Church in a Particular Place. When he goes to fetch water he saw big fish swimming around with no fear. And he asked, “What is so Special about this fish?”
He was told, People don’t catch them because even if you boil them in hot water they will just keep on swimming!
He said, is that so?
He went back there, looked around, nobody saw him – He caught one big fish. Covered it with the Blood of Jesus, cooked it and had fish for dinner.
Shout, the Blood of Jesus!!!!
I am telling you all these because God arranged this Theme (Perfect Jubilee) to let you know, some jokers will try to frighten you to deal with the Fire in you.
Let somebody shout Fire – Fire!!!!
Every Worker back then had Fire:
I. Choir Members saw Vision and had the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
I can remembered a case back then in Ilorin (Kwara State Nigeria) – A fat Lady was sleeping while Message was going on. The woman sitting next to her was sweating Profusely because the Lady sleeping was sitting on her neck. And the Lord opened a Choir Member’s eyes to see what was going on in the Spirit and she said, come down!
If the fellow next to you is sleeping, wake them up! Don’t let anyone sit on your neck.
Shout Fire – Fire!!!!!
That’s the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) – God has said after Seventy (70) years, I will visit you – Amen.
And that means He will Restore us – Amen.
Like I told you, Jubilee is an Individual thing.
So what was your own First Love?
For the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), it was Holiness, Prayer, Evangelism and Follow-up, etc.
Because, to tell you the Truth, even at that time, we were not all Holy.
There was a case of Elders among the Pastors, who committed adultery; A Choir Member fighting another Choir Member – “Leave my husband alone.”
… Oh, there were cases!
So, the issue is not strictly us, but “me”!
The Question you should ask yourself is, “Wait a Minute, who am I?”
In the beginning, if somebody asked me, “who are you?” I said, I am a Child of God.
John 1:12 says: But as many as received Him, to them gave He Power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name:
When I became Born Again, I became a Child of God, because Jesus died for me.
John 15:13 says: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Why did He died for me? – Because God loves me.
John 3:16 says: For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not Perish, but have everlasting life.
Also, John 6:44 says: No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw Him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
I wasn’t the only one who heard these Messages back then. It was Him Who revealed Himself to me.
I. Who am I? – As soon as I became Born Again, I became His Disciple, His Friend – John 15:10-15.
II. As soon as I became Born Again, I became a Pilgrim on the way to Heaven – John 14:1-3.
So, my First Love in those early days was:
I. We loved Praising Him:
I try to sing some of the Songs we used to sing then;
- I am rejoicing my name has been written;
I am rejoicing that I am Born Again.
- Only Jesus can save,
Only Jesus can save Hallelujah.
… That Particular Song was what we used to sing anything we had Break. And we want to tell Brethren to come out.
We sang Songs like:
- I know Your Name
I know Your Name
Your Name is Wonderful,
I know Your Name.
We also sang hymns like: I have a Friend, most Precious to behold; Jesus loves me.”
… Those were the Songs we sang.
Much later, we started singing Songs like: “Abraham Blessings are Mine.”
That’s true but in those days, it almost sounds strange.
We sang the song I love the Man of Galilee:
I love that Man of Galilee
For He has done so very much for me
He has forgiven me my sins
And sent the Holy Ghost with me
I love that Man of Galilee.
That was in the beginning and of course, my First Love. I just wanted to Please Him:
He has done so much for me
He has taken away my sorrow
Oh Glory, Hallelujah
He’s coming to take me Home!
II. In every way I needed to Please Him, and obey Him by witnessing.
And in those days we had “Fisherman’s Club.”
What was our Goal? – You must not sleep unless you have won a Soul a day.
And we were so committed to it to the extent that if you laid in bed at night and remembered that you had not won any Soul that day, you will leave your bed, go and wait infront of your house.
… Is there any Member of the Fisherman’s Club still here?
You would hear us say things like: “Good Evening Sir and Ma, I have a Message for you from the Lord. God loves you, He wants to solve your Problems ….”.
Many atimes, the People gave their lives to Jesus Christ by force because we would not let them be.
Ask yourself Minister of God – How many Souls have you Witness to this Year (2022) – Since the beginning of the Year?
III. We loved Digging Deep into the Word of God:
Because the Bible says in 1 Peter 2:2 – As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the Word, that ye may grow thereby:
In those days, you cannot find a “Genuine Christian” who has not gotten a Pocket Bible.
In 1976 I went to attend a World Conference of Pentecostals in Nairobi Kenya. Few of us went from Nigeria. My bossom friend Brother Kumuyi – He was a brother then and I was Brother Enoch.
We slept in the School Domitory; and I went to use the toilet. When I finished doing my business and came out, Brother Kumuyi was in the other toilet. When we came out, both of us had our Pocket Bible in our hands. We were Studying and Memorising Scriptures right there in the toilet.
Because Jesus in John 5:39 says: Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
We memorised the Scriptures back then. And part of the Scriptures I memorised then, I still remembered now.
IV. We never missed Fellowship.
When any opportunity to attend Fellowship came, we grabbed it – That was our First Love.
And some of you might be in that Category; while some of you, your First Love might be different.
I got Born Again on Sunday Night. By Monday morning, I was already Witnessing. I was a Student at the University of Lagos. My Supervisor (of Blessed Memory) said, “Adeboye, you look different. Did you attend a Party over the weekend?” I said No, I received an Invitation to the Heavenly Ceremony.
And if I traveled hundreds of kilometers, when we greet, the next thing I did was to Witness – I just couldn’t keep my mouth shut!
I don’t understand why you can’t Witness as a Born Again Child of God.
Before we Pray; if I look at myself today, especially if I had continued with the same Sermons of those days, will I be here? Is this where I am supposed to be by now?
… And I am not talking of Titles – I am talking of Power.
If I had continued with my First Love, is this where I will be? Not by Tithes.
After all, in Acts 8:5-8, the work recorded for a Deacon Philip was not so of some Apostles.
Thank God for Peter – The Apostles had Tithes, some of the Deacons had Power.
We were talking not too long ago – When I was Eighty (80) years old, when all the Head of Churches my Life has touched gave Beautiful Testimonies. Those whose daughters had died and God brought back to Life, who are now Doctors; those whose wives died and we Prayed for, God answered.
I thanked them. But I said to them, the Problem with this kind of Testimony is that as a General Overseer, People tell you only the Good things you have done and not the bad ones.
I heard a Story before, and I am telling you because I believed God wants to give you Perfect Jubilee – At least a few of you would have heard about what happened to me. This is not a lie.
In the Past, I was closer to God in the area of Prayer and Faith – My First Love!
In 1975 there was a World Conference of Applied Mathematicians and I was one of them. I got my PhD 1974, and I was representing my Country in 1975 – I felt honoured and I thought I had arrived.
Before my turn to make.my Presentation, a man did his. He had over a hundred and fifty (150) Publications. And here he was, talking about the Mathematics of Rain.
Mathematics of Rain?
And I Prayed, God, Please when I am going to Present my Paper, don’t let this man come.
But he came!
I was already Born Again then. And when I finished my my Presentation, that man was one of those who clapped for me.
Later on he called me aside, he said: but why did you solve your Equation with Complex when you had already used Vector?
Suddenly, my eyes opened.
Are you basing the Assessment of yourself on what People are saying, on your Titles and the Size of your Congregation?
Or is God saying: “Oga, well-done, you tried?” But how about your First Love?
When you read Isaiah 6:1-18, you would see the kind of Jubilee I am talking about.
Isaiah thought he was a Great Prophet – And believe me honestly, he was!
But he looked at his Life from Isaiah Chapters 1-6; and then you will see somebody talking about the Virgin Birth, Emmanuel, Second Coming etc.
But he had his Jubilee when he saw God in all His Glory
And he said in Isaiah 6:5 – Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a People of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.
What is God’s opinion about you?
The journey to your Salvation begins when you realised that you need help. When you suddenly realised it and you have the courage to admit it – These are the way!
The Story of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11-24 – His Jubilee came when he suddenly realised, “wait a minute, once upon a time I was a son enjoying the abundance in the house of my father. And now I am a hired servant eating with pigs. I will arise and go to my father.”
I don’t know if there is any of us who will be ready to tell God – Let me start afresh!
I have told my Spiritual children (some of them are Old now) – I said: If your Team is going to Kano (Northern Nigeria) and then you got to Sagamu Junction and branch towards the wrong direction. You will be meeting Towns along the way, but you are already heading in the wrong Direction.
If God wants to be Merciful unto you, He will call your attention to it. Because in the meantime your colleagues are already approaching Ilorin (Kwara State).
You are in a wrong firection, you need courage to turn back – All the way back to Sagamu Junction. You will arrived late, but you will still get to Kano.
Quickly, we want to cry to God and say: Father, I am not where I used to be: my hatred for sin is no longer there. I don’t Pray, Fast or Witness like before. Lord Please, bring me back to my “Original Love” that I have lost. I want my own Personal Jubilee – “Custom-Built” for me.
I know where I was with my Relationship with You; at least, bring me back to that “Original Love”.
We are going to Pray!
Help me Lord to start afresh, because that is why You gave us this Theme – “Perfect Jubilee”.
… Go ahead and Pray now for at least Thirty (30) Minutes.
