AS I GO AROUND PREACHING, IT GIVES ME STRENGTH WHEN I SEE THE CROWD AND THEIR JOY
WHEN YOU ARE ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP YOU GET CLOSER TO GOD AND HE WILL PUT YOU ABOVE ALL THE PROBLEMS THAT MAY BE GOING ON IN THE VALLEY BELOW
WHEN YOU ARE ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP, YOUR PRAYERS CAN BE ANSWERED BY FIRE
WHEN YOU PRAY ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP THERE WILL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS AND BARRENNESS AND FRUITLESS EFFORTS WILL COME TO AN END.
– Pastor E. A. Adeboye on “FROM MY NEW POSITION – THE MOUNTAIN TOP” RCCG 2023 Crossover Service 31st December, 2023 || Part B
When you have been repositioned to the mountain top, then you will come into closer contact with God because God is above, Jesus Christ told us so. “He that cometh from above is above all” so God is above. When you climb a mountain top, you get closer to God and when you get closer to God, one of the things is that God will put you above all the problems that may be going on in the valley below. Exodus 17:8-16.
When God has lifted you up, when He has repositioned you and placed you on the mountain top, from there you can pray fire down. 1 Kings 18:1-39. Let me use this opportunity to inform you in case you don’t know, that there are 2 places in the world today where there is Mount Carmel. One is in Israel, the other one is in Nigeria. While I am not advertising but I want to tell you that all those who have visited Mount Carmel in Ifewara find it difficult to leave. A journalist went there to go and write, to find out what’s going on, so that he could come and write something critical, when he got there, the Holy Spirit arrested him and he was there for 3 days. After 3 days, he didn’t want to leave. On Mount Carmel you pray and fire comes down.
– Father in the New Year, answer all my prayers by fire!
2 Kings 1:9-12.
– Father, every evil force that may want to arrest my progress in the coming year, let your fire descend and consume them! Every obstruction of any type that may want to slow me down in the coming Year, let your fire come down and consume them!
When you are on the mountain top, your prayer can be answered by fire like I said but when you read 1 Kings 18:41-45, it was still on Mount Carmel that Elisha prayed and there was a shower of blessings. He prayed and there was mighty rain fall. I was talking to some of my children who were here just few days ago for Young Ministers Conference and they were talking about the Rain. I told them that the Rain is the number one enemy of famine because when it rains, there will be food for eaters and seed for sowers. When it rains, barrenness and fruitless efforts will come to an end.
– Father, in the coming year as I pray, let there be showers of blessings!
Acts 2:1-4. The Holy Spirit came upon the disciples and they received power
– Father, in the coming year, when I pray let the Holy Spirit fall on me afresh like in the day of Pentecost to empower me to do miracles, signs and wonders.
Acts 8:5-8. Philip was just a member of the congregation then God promoted him. First, he became a deacon just like one of the Ushers to serve the people when they needed to be served. Then God repositioned him and he landed in a place called Samaria. But because the shower of fire had fallen on him, he began to do marvellous things, even demons heard him speaking and they began to run away. He became a great channel of blessing.
– Father in the coming year, I don’t want just to be blessed beyond measure, I want to be a channel of blessings to many. I want my life to touch so many lives.
A friend of mine gave me a phone call some days ago, we are about the same age. He said, “Pastor, where do you get your energy from? At over 80 you are still running up and down.” We just laughed. I tell you the truth, “it’s not easy at the time of Christmas when everybody is sitting down at home, eating, talking, for an 81 year old man to be running from one city to another village, jumping down, preaching, laying hands on the sick and so on and so forth.
But when I arrive and I see the crowd and their joy even when I haven’t said anything, “hey he has arrived,” I see their shouting, their rejoicing, their joy gives me strength.
– In the coming year wherever you go, when you arrive, joy will arrive!
If you haven’t given your life to Jesus Christ, ask the Lord to have mercy on you, forgive your sins, wash you clean with His blood and save your soul.
