Let’s Us Pray!


The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
Jehovah, the Man of War
His Mercy endureth Forever and Ever
Oh Praise His Holy Name


God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob; the Holy One of Israel; the Lion of the Tribe of Judah; the King of Glory; the Lord of Host; the One who has never lost a War – We bless Your Holy Name.

Thank You for defending us all these Years Lord; Thank You that You were there Protecting us while we were fast asleep because You never Sleep, You never Slumber.

There are many Nights when the Enemies didn’t want us to wake up. But by Your Grace, we are still alive and well today.

Please accept our Worship in Jesus Name.

Lord God Almighty, as we gather together again to learn at Your feet; Please reach out to us, let the Heavens open and send Help to us Lord.

In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!

Well, let Someone shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!

And Please shake hands with two (2) or three (3) People and say: God will fight for you today – Amen.

And then we may Please be seated!

We are continuing our Series on: For Whom The Heavens Open – Part 15. And we will continue with our Bible Text: Joshua 5: 13-15.

Joshua 5:13-15:

  1. AND. it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?
  2. ]And he said, Nay; but as Captain of the Host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the Earth, and did Worship, and said unto him, What saith my Lord unto his Servant?
  3. And the Captain of the LORD’S Host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the Place whereon thou standest is Holy. And Joshua did so.

In the Last Series (Part 14 of this Series); we are looking at the Categories of Angels.

We discussed about Angels that are called: Seraphims; and we talked about Angels called Cherubims.

Incidentally, just for you to understand how Strong a Cherub can be; the Bible tells us in 2 Samuel 22:11 that when God wants to travel (Probably coming to the Earth) and He is coming Probably in the Shape of a Man; He uses a Cherub as a Horse – He rides on a Cherub!

Someone who is Strong enough to carry the Almighty God – That Fellow must be Pretty Strong!

Like I have said before, if you ever see Drawings showing Angels as “Little Baby” with wings; just smile because what you are seeing are Demons and not Angels.

By the Grace of God, I have happened to see Angels before and I can tell you that an Angel is “Big Enough” to carry a 747-Plane in the Palm of his hand.

… A 747-Plane will just be like a Toy in the Hand of an Angel.

DMC NOTES: The Boeing 747 is a large, long-range wide-body airliner manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes in the United States. After introducing the 707 in October 1958, Pan Am wanted a jet 2+1⁄2 times its size, to reduce its seat cost by 30% to democratize air travel.

The Bible teaches us that the first thing an Angel will tell you when you are seeing him is – “Fear Not”.

There is no way that you will see a “Real Angel” that you will not Fear.

When we talk about “Somebody Huge”; you have not seen “Hugeness” until you have seen an Angel.

My Prayer is that: One of these days, God will show you an Angel – Amen!

And of course, you will be frightened; but he will tell you: Don’t be afraid; I am here as your Servant!

And so we spoke about Angels – About Seraphims, about Cherubims, about some Special Angels like Gabriel who could Stand in the Very Presence of God.

We gave a warning that you must handle children with care because their own Angels have direct Access to God.

And we talked about the fact that Angels excel in Power and that an Angel can kill about 185,000 Soldiers in one Night.

But we warned you that you are not to Worship Angels!

That if you know of Organisations where they Worship Angels, maybe you will gently correct them because Angels are your Servants once you are Born Again. And you don’t want to Worship your Servant.

So, there might be a little bit of error if you hear some People saying that they are Worshipping Angels.

And you Probably hear a lot of People giving all manners of names to Angels.

I will advice that you will limit yourself to only those Angels that were named by the Bible – The Bible mentioned Gabriel, it mentioned Michael.

So, when you begin to hear of “Angel Raphael”; and so on and so forth; don’t be deceived.

… That is very important!

Now, we said that when Joshua saw this Angel, he asked him certain Questions:

  1. Who are you?
  2. Why are you here?

And the Angel said: I am a Captain, a Commander in the Army of the Lord and I am here to take over this fight from you – I am not here as an Observer.

And he said to Joshua: I am about to take over, so we need to settle one thing first and foremost- We need to know who is in Charge. Therefore then, put off your Shoes.

This is very, very Informative!

You see because when you Study the Scriptures very well, you will discovered that Servants do not wear shoes in those days – Only sons wear shoes.

In the Story of the Prodigal son – When the Prodigal son came back home; he said to his father – I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Just take me back as one of the Servants.

The father replied and said: No, you are my son. You were lost but now you are found.

And to let you know that you are still my son, he said to the Servants: Give him shoes to wear.

Not only give him Clothes to wear; not only give him food to eat; give him shoes to wear.

And so I say: “True Sons” of God, you can go into the Presence of God your Father wearing shoes – That is very Important!

So, you don’t have to walk through the Streets of Lagos or whatever your City might be bare footed – It is not a Sign of Respect to God!

If you are a son, then you are a son and you can wear shoes – That’s quite an interesting information that I just feel that you should know!

And then the Second Question is: Are you for us or against us?

And that Question is opening our eyes to certain information – Some of them we Probably have learnt before but some may be New and might not know.

There are four (4) ways that God could respond to you when you are fighting a battle:

  1. The first one is that God could be against you!

If God is fighting against you, you are going to lose – There is no way that God can fight against you and you will win.

Exodus 14: 21-25 – The children of Israel were by the Red Sea; Pharaoh and his Army were Pursing them.

God gave Instructions to His Servant (Moses) – Raise your hands against the Sea. He did that and the Sea opened.

The children of Israel went into the Middle of the Sea on Dry Ground and then Pharaoh and his Aemy followed them into the Middle of the Sea.

That should tell you that something is missing here – Because if you are Pharaoh and you suddenly see the Sea opening to the People you are Pursuing; you should have “Enough Sense” to say: I think that I better leave this People alone.

But the English have a Proverb – They said that whosoever the gods wants to destroy they first of all make them hard!

If you are Pursuing Someone and the Fellow has ran to take hold of the Lord of Host; leave that Fellow alone.

Because, you keep Pursuing that Fellow can only mean Destructions to ypu.

Because when the Army of Pharaoh get to the Middle of the Sea; suddenly God began to work on their Chariots so that the Chariots can no longer run the way it should run.

It was only at that Sea that they realised and they said: Hey, let us run back because it is certain that God is fighting against us. But by then, it was “Too Late” because the Sea came together again and they were all drowned.

And how do I know that God is against us?

I. 1 Peter 5: 5-6 tells us that God resist the Proud.

When Pride begin to take over your Life, you are putting yourself into a situation where God will be against you.

II. When you begin to attribute to yourself the Glory that should be given to God.

III. When you begin to think that your Success in Life is as a result of your Ability.

IV. When you begin to boast – Don’t you know who I am?

You are asking for Divine Resistance.

In Daniel 4:37 – Nebuchadnezzar was once boasting that there was no King like him. After God dealth with him, he opened his mouth and say: Whoever exalts himself before this God is able to abase.

God can knock the Fellow down.

In Luke 18:14; it is written: Whoever exalts himself shall be abased.

It is the one who humbles himself that shall be Exalted.

Learn this Lesson and become Humble!

Because if you ever start to believe that: There is no one like you, you are the Best, you can do this or you can do that; the Almighty God might want to teach you a Lesson and that Lesson might not be Pleasant.

Somebody said: Maybe I should Pray that God should Humble me!

That is a “Dangerous Prayer” – He expects you to do it yourself.

Because when He decides to Humble some People in the Old Testament; the Bible says that He got them walking around in Circles for four hundred (400) years to Humble them.

You don’t want to walk in Circles for four hundred (400) before you learnt Humility.

The Bible says you can do it yourself – Humble yourself in the sight of God. Without Him, you can do Nothing.

The Word of God says clearly in 1 Samuel 2:9; by Strength shall no Man Prevail.

Humble yourself and begin it right now! And it may amaze you how the tides in your battle will turn in your Favour – Amen!

  1. God could be Neutral – He can just be Watching you: Not fighting against you but He will just be a Spectator!

Like some of you will want Him to be – Let Him sit down in His Heavens minding His own Business and leaving me alone on Earth and let me mind my own Business.

But if God remains Neutral, you will lose!

My father used to tell me that when a Lion wakes up in the Morning, it Prays.

His Prayer is: God show me the animal I will eat today and leave the two of us alone – Don’t help me and don’t help the animal.

Why? The Lion knows that if God does not help the animal, the animal is as good as dead.

If the devil ever Prays – Thank God I believed that he won’t Pray. The Prayer he will Pray is that God show me that Christian that I will destroy today and leave the two of us alone!

Remember that the Bible calls him Someone who walks about like a Lion seeking whom he will devour.

I Pray that God will not leave you alone – Amen

Because if He leaves you alone, the Enemies will finish the rest.

You don’t believed me, ask Samson!

In Judges 16: 18-21; all that God did waa leave Samson alone.

He woke up from Sleep – Samson, Samson, Samson; the Enemy is here?

He said that is no Problem, I will go out as ever before.

And the Bible says that He didn’t know that God has departed.

God wasn’t fighting against Samson – He just left him alone because his Cup was full.

If you keep on sinning and you seems to be getting away with it; it might be that God has left you alone!

If God leaves you alone, the Enemies will finish the rest!

There is something very Instructive in Exodus 17: 5-13.

The Amalekites came to attack the children of Israel while they were on their way to the Promised Land.

Moses went to the Top of the Hill, he took Aaron and Hur with him. And he told Joshua, Please lead the little Army that we have.

If you loose Contact with God, the battle will turn against you!

Many of us might not know the reason why during our Conventions, you don’t normally see me during the Day – Somebody has to be on the Hilltop raising up his hands to the Almighty God and saying: Lord, help us.

You can’t have Millions of People gathered together in a Place with hundreds of thousands of them being children in an Open or Porous Place and the Meeting Advertised.

So, the Enemies knew that you are Gathering, the Enemies know the time and so there has to be a Force beyond Human Ability keeping the Enemies at bay.

You need to understand this Simple Principles – That is why we need to appreciate our Leaders a little more.

When you are in your various Parishes and things are happening – Congratulations! But there is Someone somewhere Praying!

  1. What happens when God is with you? Then you will win!

You will fight – No doubt about that. But He is fighting with you now and so Victory is certain!

In 1 Samuel 17: 34-51; when David was about to face Goliath and there was Nobody ready to face him.

But he (David) went to the King Saul and said: I know what I am talking about – I have killed a Lion before, I have killed a Bear before.

It is not me that killed them – That God that was with me, that was fighting with me then; He is still on my Side. He will take care of this Goliath also.

Remember what King Saul said: Go and the Lord be with you.

You know the end of the Story!

If God is fighting with you; you will win. Without any doubt, Victory is sure! Because He will Supply you with Strength.

Isaiah 40: 28-31; the Bible tells us that there is a God who is never tired.

No matter how Strong you are as a Young Man, you will get tired!

But there is Someone who is always giving Strength to the Weak – His Name is “The Almighty God”.

I. If you are connected to Him, no matter how fast you run, you won’t get tired – Amen.

II. It doesn’t matter how long ypu walk, you won’t get weary – Amen.

III. He says that you can even fly with wings as an Eagle.

So, occasionally when you see a Man of God who seems to be tireless – How does he do it? Today he is here, tomorrow he is in that Place?

It is because there is Someone he is connected to. Connect to that Person and He will be renewing your Strength from Day to Day – Amen.

  1. What if God is fighting for you? Then you will win even without fighting.

Romans 8:31 says: If God be for us, who can be against us?

Who is that enemy who will wait to fight you if He sees the One behind us as the “Consumimg Fire”.

Even a Mad Dog will recognise a Fire.

In Deuteronomy 28: 1 and 7; the Bible made it clear that when you have surrendered completely to God, then the Enemies that comes against you will be smitten before your face.

He didn’t say that you will do the smittening, the Enemies will be dealth with by God.

It says that when they come in one way, they will flee seven ways!

Which is one of the Major reasons why those of you who are yet to be on the Side of God, do so urgently.

So, that is why you will begin to live the rest of your Lives as if there are no Enemies.

Because whether they like it or not; let them gang up against you, the Lord will smitten them. They will come against you in one way and flee seven (7) ways.

Surrender your Life to Jesus Christ – You will gain a lot by doing so because He will now begin to fight your battles for you and your Victory will be Certain.


So, if you want to give your Life to Jesus Christ, this is an opportunity again to do so – It is either you go before the Altar near you now or anywhere you are or reading now on the Label of DMC – Stand Up and make Him know that you are surrendering to Him.

And you Pray a Prayer and say: I am surrendering to You, I want you on my Side.

Please save my Soul, let Your Blood wash away my sins and I will serve You for the rest of my Life.

And I will Pray with you now – And God will save your Soul.


My Father and my God, I want to Thank You once again for Your Words.

I want to Thank You once again for all those who has decided right now to surrender their lives to You.

Father, Please receive them, have Mercy on them, let Your Blood wash away their sins, save their Souls, receive them into the Family of God and from now on, fight their battles for them.

In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!

Well, I want to Thank God for those of you who has given your Life to Jesus Christ. And I want to assure you that from now on, by the Grace of God, I will be Praying for you.

Please Contact me in one way or the other – I will love to know your names, Addreess and your Prayer Requests.

And then, look for a Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) near you – They are all very near you as I’m sure that you will find one within five (5) Minutes.

And tell the Pastor there that I sent you and he will tell you what to do next.

God Bless You – Amen!

Let Someone shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!!!
