BIBLE TEXT: JOHN 4: 23-24
Let Somebody shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
What a Mighty God we Serve
What a Mighty God we Serve
Heaven and Earth Adore Him
Angels bow before Him
What a Mighty God we Serve.
Ancient of Days, the Almighty God, the Bright and the Morning Star. The Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending; the One who is, the One who was, the One who is to come; the Almighty, Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace – Father, Glory be to Your Holy Name.
My Father and my God, my Request tonight is that in the lives of all Your Children, You will do something they will never forget and You will give them a Brand New Beginning.
And before the Sun rises tomorrow, let everyone here or reading now on the Label of DMC, have a Testimony.
Father, I’m asking Specifically that You will bless our Governor, that You will bless Lagos State and Please Lord, bless Nigeria.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!
Welll, let Someone shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
I want you to shake hands with one (1) or two (2) People – Tell them: Brother/Sister, I love you but tonight, my Miracles will be bigger than yours (Amen).
And then you may Please be seated – God Bless You!
I am extremely delighted to be here tonight.
I thank God for those of you who are here and because my God answer Prayers, you will never forget tonight.
I’m extremely delighted that our Governor is here with us – The God that you have come to honour will honour you in return – Amen.
I’m here to talk to you very, very briefly and also to Pray for you.
But before I Pray, I will talk for about 15 Minutes.
I have come to talk to you about: “THE LINK BETWEEN WORSHIP AND DESTINY”.
Because the Destiny of Somebody is about to be released – Amen!
The Bible says in John 4: 23-24 that:
- But the hour cometh, and now is, when the True Worshippers shall Worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth: for the Father seeketh such to Worship Him.
- God is a Spirit: and they that Worship Him must Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
The Almighty God loves Worship!
When you count the number of the Mass Choir in Heaven, it will shock you – He calls them thousands of thousands (That’s Millions) and He said plus ten thousand of ten thousand.
And yet inspite of all that Massive Choir, the Almighty God said that I am still seeking for Someone else – Just one more Member of the Choir.
He is seeking for Worshippers and He is going to find one here tonight – Amen!
Now, what has Worship got to do with Destiny?
- Because the One who Controls Destiny is seeking for Worshippers and whenever He finds a Worshipper, He releases Destiny!
So, if you learn to Worship Him, your Destiny will locate you!
When He was talking about how He got David to become a King and He was looking for a Shepherd Boy to become King; He said to us in Acts 13: 20-22 – He said that I have found a Man.
That means that He was seeking for Him to find – Who will do my Will.
That is, He just wants Somebody to Worship Him.
When you know how to Worship God; it doesn’t matter where you are, your Destiny will locate you – Amen.
- Not only that, as soon as your Destiny locates you, the same Worship will move you from where you are to where you need to be, to become what God wants you to become.
After God had rejected King Saul and had Anointed David to be the next King – If you read the whole of 1 Samuel Chapter 16, you will find the Story there.
The Bible says that an evil Spirit from the Lord began to trouble Saul.
Someone said: Sir, you have a Problem. I think you need Somebody who can Worship – To Worship God whenever the evil Spirit is troubling you and the evil Spirit will leave you alone.
Suddenly Somebody said I know a Man who can Worship God and the King said: Bring him.
So, from where David was taking care of Sheep and Goats, they went and brought him to the Palace where one day, he would be ruling.
I don’t know who God has in Mind tonight or as you read now on the Label of DMC – You might be an househelp but God is Training you for Greatness and He will bring you to the Right Place (Amen).
Your Desttiny will locate you and then relocate you to where you should be to become what God wants you to become – Amen!
- Not only that, as you go along in the Journey of fulfilling your Destiny, automatically there will be Enemies.
If Somebody tells you that I have no Enemies, then I can tell him that it means that you are not going anywhere.
Because the moment the Enemies notices that you are on your way up, they will do everything.
I have always told my children – When we were living in Mushin in those days (DMC NOTES: “Mushiin” is a Low Earner City Part of Lagos State Nigeria) – Most of us there maybe you have two Pair of Trousers, two Shirts and if you have a Bicycle at all, it is either Second-Hand or Third-Hand Bicycle.
You don’t need a Bodyguard – Who is coming to steal your Second-Hand or Third-Hand Bicycle?
But all you need to do is to take a look at Ikoyi or Victoria Island (DMC NOTES: Both are Cities Areas in Lagos State Nigeria where the Rich and High and Mighty in the Society lives) – And when you see some houses; you see Walls and you see some Notices saying: Beware of Dogs.
Telling you that there is Someone inside there who has gotten to a certain Positions.
Because the moment you begin to move Upwards, there must be reactions of the Enemies.
But I have Good News for you – If only you can learn to Worship; anyone who tries to mess around with your Destiny will be surprised – Amen.
Well, you can read that in Acts 16: 25-end.
God had already made up His Mind that a Man who used to be called Saul of Tarsus will become converted and be called Paul.
God made up His Mind that He will Perform Special Miracles by the hands of this Man.
But long before he (Saul who later became Paul) got to where God was taking him, some People grabbed him and throw him into Prison and they were going to kill him the following day.
But at Midnight, Paul and his Assistant they Prayed and they Worshipped God – And the One who has Planned his Destiny sent an Earthquake.
I decree to Someone here tonight or reading now on the Label of DMC – Every Walls trying to block your way to Destiny shall fall – Amen!
- Destiny will locate you if you know how to Worship God.
- The same Worship will relocate you to where you need to be, to become what you need to become.
- And if you know how to Worship God, any Effort to truncate your Destiny will be destroyed.
But there are some People whose Destiny has already been messed up thoroughly by the Enemies.
Something told you when you are very, very Young that you are going to be Great.
And now, you have reached a certain Stage and you are asking yourself – Where is the Greatness? Because some Enemies had interfered.
If only you can Worship God, God will restore your Destiny!
In Marks 5: 12-20 – You know the Story of a Man who was so Mad that everybody had written him off and he himself had written himself off.
He was living in the Tomb – Just waiting. He knew that if he died, Nobody is going to bother to bury him. And so he said: Let me stay in the Graveyard.
Then one day, Jesus Christ was Passing by and the only thing that Man did was Worship.
Because the moment he opened his mouth to say a word, the Demons in him took over – They won’t even allow him to Pray because the Bible said: He had a Legion of Demons.
Bible Scholars has not really agreed on how many Demons made up a Legion. But some of them said that means at least 6,000 Demons.
One Demon is enough to make anybody Mad – This Man had 6,000 Demons.
But it was already “Too Late” for the Enemy because this Man has Worshipped.
And like I keep on telling People – If a Mad Man can Worship Jesus, then what is your own excuse?
You are not Mad and even if you are Mad, it’s not one hundred Percent.
Do you know that at the end of the day, the Man who woke up Naked, living in the Mortuary/Cemetery was already an Evangelist – Because that is what God made him to be.
… That was his Destiny!
But his Destiny was so messed up that there was no Hope for him until he Worshipped!
There are some of you here now or reading now on the Label of DMC – You don’t even know how far you are from the Goal God has for you.
But as you Worship Him tonight, the Journey to the Top begins for you – Amen
Let me just tell you a Story and that will be enough.
I will Pray for you and after I have Prayed for you, then you will Worship God in Spirit and in Truth.
The Worship You are going to do before the Musicians will come and help you further will be one hundred Percent your own and I will tell you what to do.
There was a Young Man they brought to the Redemption Camp way back I think in 1985. He was a Student at the College of Medicine of the University of Ibadan.
When I saw him by the time they brought him, he has not slept for seven (7) days – His eyes were crimson red.
What is the Problem?
His father fought with another Man in their Village and the other Man Pronounced a Curse on the father and said: By the time I finished with you, there will be no trace that you have ever been in this world.
Oh, the Father thought that he was just an “Angry Man”, speaking as if he is drunk and so he ignored it.
Well, less than two (2) weeks later, his father died.
And then all the children came home to bury their father.
Among those who came home was the first born who has just returned from Germany and he has just bought a car and so he came home driving his new car.
After the burial of the father, they were on their way home and the fellow with the brand new car had an Accident and he died.
They brought the News to the mother; the mother heard the News, collapsed and died.
The other children came back to bury their mother and brother and on their way back, the one next to the Fellow who bought the new car had an Accident and died.
Anyway, the Story continues until it remains the Last Born – This one was the Student.
And he came home to see if he could get some money from the father’s farm for his Education. And that Man who Places a Curse on the father saw him and said: Ha, there still remains one? And he said that before I kill this one, I will torture him a bit.
So, the boy got back to the Campus, gathered all his books together and all his Clothes and set them on fire (Ablaze).
Of course, you knew what they will do in that situation – They just Picked him and took him to “Aro”.
DMC NOTES: “Aro” is the name of a town near Abeokuta in Ogun State Nigeria, where a Psychiatric Hospital (Hospital for those Mad) is situated.
They Pumped him full of drugs, he was a little sober and so he came back to the University.
When he needed money to buy new books and clothes, he had to go back home.
That Man saw him again and said: Ha, this one is still looking sober and he added a little more fuel to the fire.
So, the boy came back again and began to behave even worst than before.
To cut the long Story short, after a while; Somebody said: Wait a Minute, the case of this boy is not Ordinary. Let’s take him to Jesus – That was when they brought him to the Camp.
We Prayed a little Prayer, my God stepped in and he became Normal again.
We told him – Don’t bother to go home for now. God will Pay your School Fees.
I remembered the day that he finished from School, he came to see me at the Headquarters Parish in Ebute Metta and said: But for God, by now I will Probably be walking Naked on the Street, eating anything that I will find on the dustbin. But now, I am a Doctor sir.
I said: Congratulations sir. But I don’t think bring a Doctor is the Final Goal for you.
To cut the long Story short, today he is an Evangelist.
There is a God who can do all things and there is a God who can reverse the Irreversible!
And all He wants from you is Worship!
However, He said something in Proverbs 15:8 – He said that I love Worship but I don’t want it from a Wicked Man.
He said that the Sacrifice of the Wicked is an Abomination unto the Lord.
You said that you want to Praise me? If you are not one of my own, I don’t want to hear!
You are living in sin and you want to come to Onikan Stadium to sing and dance and shout Hallelujah?
And then when you leave here, you go back and begin to fornicate, begin to steal, begin to defraud? – Keep your Worship to your father, the devil.
That is why tonight, before you Worship:
I. Before Destiny will locate you; so that Destiny can relocate you to where you should be, so that you can be what you should become.
II. Before you Worship, so that Nobody will be able to truncate your Destiny.
III. Before you Worship so that the Almighty God will say: Anything that has been messed up viz-a-viz your Destiny, will be put right.
You better make sure that you give your Life to Jesus Christ!
If you really, really want to Surrender your Life to Jesus Christ; before we Proceed further; you better Stand on your feet now because Dunsin made a Statement – Don’t miss your moment. A Day like this comes only once in a Lifetime.
Next time that they are holding a Meeting like this; I might not be around.
Why? I’m going to be 82 years Old. If Somebody dies at 82, you can’t call him “Abiku”.
DMC NOTES: “Abiku” is a Yoruba word that can be translated as “Predestined to Death”. It is from “That which was born” and “death”. According to Yoruba’s Tradition, if a woman gives birth to a child and the child dies before becoming an adult, such a child is called “Abiku” especially if the Process of giving birth and dying of the child keeps recurring. It is believed that it is the same child that is coming to the world and dying just to torment his/her Parents. If Perchance, the woman gives birth to a child that survives, such a child is usually given names like ‘Malomo’ (Meaning ‘Don’t go again’), ‘Kashimawo’ (Meaning ‘Let’s be watching him/her’), etc.
Or you might be somewhere else in the world because I have some Places that I have never visited.
But I am here today – We know today and only God knows tomorrow.
So, if you want to give your Life to Jesus Christ and you really mean business; Stand on your feet now!
And lift your hands to the Almighty God all over the Place and say: Lord, no more joking. I’m surrendering my Life to You now one hundred Percent.
And then talk to the Almighty God and say: Lord, save my Soul, I Surrender my Life to You and I’m no longer Pretending.
Just have Mercy on me and save my Soul.
And if you had known Jesus Christ before but you backslide and you know that you are back to what you said that you will never do again – Stand Up too as you need Restoration.
So, if you know that you are a Backslider – Stand Up too, so that I can include you in my Prayers.
And begin to cry to the Lord – Save my Soul, restore me Lord as I want to be a Member of your Family and I want to be there in a very Permanent manner.
Now, the rest of us who are already sure of our Salvation; will you Please cry to God for all those who are Standing.
And say: Father, Please have Mercy on them, save their Souls, give them Genuine Salvation, receive them into the Family of God Lord God Almighty and let them become yours in a definite Permanent way.
Pray for them for a Minute or two (2) Minutes.
Thank You Father.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
PRAYER FOR SALVATION
Ancient of Days, I Thank You. The Controller of Destinies, I bless Your Name.
And I’m Thanking You Specifically for those who are Surrendering their lives to You now and those who had already backslided and they say they want to come back to You.
Please Lord receive them all, have Mercy on them, let Your Blood wash away their sins and Please Lord, give them a Brand New Beginning.
And every Prayers that they will Pray here my Father and my God, receive in Jesus Name.
And from now on, let it be well with them.
And I Pray that we will serve You till the very end.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
Well, let Somebody shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Now, I’m going to Pray for you and after I have Prayed for you, then you are going to Worship God!
And I hope that they will allow you to do your own “Personal Worship” for some time before the Musicians will come.
Thank God for the Mighty Musicians that has been assembled here tonight but do you know what?
Nobody can Worship your God like yourself – This thing is a matter of Individuals!
When it comes to Destiny, my Destiny is different from that of the Musicians – So, when it is time to Worship, you are going to do it on your own!
SPECIAL DECREES AND BLESSINGS
Let’s Stand if you don’t mind and lift your hands to the Almighty God!
My Father and my God, I Worshipped You, Ancient of Days I Adored You.
I’m very, very Grateful to You for Gathering Your Children here tonight and for making it Possible for me to be here today.
Father, Please accept our Thanks in Jesus Name.
Daddy, I’m Standing before You today as Your Representative to these Your Children.
I’m Praying Lord God Almighty that as I decree, You will established it.
So I decree in the Name that is above every other name – In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, your Destiny will locate you tonight.
If you are no where that you are supposed to be; in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, your Destiny will relocate you tonight.
If your Destiny is being truncated by any Force; before the Sun rises, those Forces will be Scattered.
If your Destiny seems to be one hundred Percent Lost; in the Name that is above every other name, before you get out of here, your Destiny will be fully restored,
Whether the Enemies likes it or not, you will become what He wants you to become – You will reach the Top and you will not die halfway.
Whether the Enemies are Within or Without ‐ If they are Within, God will humiliate them; if they are Without, God will scatter them.
The Almighty God will fight your battles for you.
And so, in the Name that is above every other name; I release you to your Destiny.
So shall it be!
In Jesus Mighty Name I have Prayed – Amen!
Now, the Bible says that we are to make a Joyful Noise to the Lord – Hallelujah!
But the way we used to do it when I was Younger is the way you are going to do it tonight.
Everyone will have his/her own Song of Worship – You will be singing your own to Him and I will be singing my own to Him.
When all these Songs of Worship are Combined, it will become a Joyful Noise.
So, think of your own Song and begin to sing to the Almighty God.
Go ahead and sing it to the Almighty God!
Let Him hear you – Sing your own Song!!!
