THE PROSPERITY OF THOSE WHO ARE NOT CHRISTIANS WILL DESTROY THEM. IT IS THE BLESSINGS OF THE LORD THAT MAKES RICH AND ADDS NO SORROW
IF THERE IS ANY ONE WHO SHOULD BE DOING VERY WELL, IT IS SOMEONE WHOSE SOUL IS PROSPERING – A TRUE CHILD OF GOD
IT IS TO SINNERS THAT GOD HAS ORDAINED TRAVAIL, STRUGGLE AND HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT.
POVERTY IS A CURSE. PROSPERITY IS A BLESSING.
DELIVERANCE CAN TURN YOU TO BECOME A TERROR TO THE devil AND MOVE YOU TO A LEVEL WHERE YOU BECOME A ONE MAN ARMY FOR THE LORD
DELIVERANCE GIVES YOU THE ABILITY AND THE MEANS TO SERVE GOD AS YOU WISH
– Pastor E. A. Adeboye on BEYOND DELIVERANCE at RCCG Online Sunday Service 24th September 2023 Part B
But deliverance offers you more. Exodus 12:30-32. Deliverance gives you the ability and the means to serve God as you wish. For example, deliverance makes available to you the wealth that you need to serve God.
I know there are some people here who would love to build a Church for God once every year. It’s only they don’t have the means.
– I am decreeing tonight that the power to do whatever you want to do for God easily you receive it tonight!
It was deliverance that turned Mary Magdalene to a divine treasurer. Poverty is a curse. Prosperity is a blessing. That’s one of the reasons why the devil does not like anything that will cause you to prosper.
I am telling you, poverty is not good. If you agree with me say, Amen. I have been poor. By the grace of God I am not that poor any more. I have known what it is to walk barefooted till you reach the age of 18. That’s not good. Poverty is a curse.
– In the name of the One who called me, I decree, poverty will become a stranger to you!
The Almighty God said it is to sinners that God has ordained travail, to struggle and have nothing to show for it. You’re working hard, working like an elephant and eating like an ant. That is not God.
What your God says is: I wish above all things that you will prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers. If there is any one who should be doing very well, it is someone whose soul is prospering. If you’re a true child of God, doing the will of God, you shouldn’t lack. Poverty is a curse and poverty will become a stranger to your family!
I am sure some of you will say, “but what about those people who are not Christians and they have a lot of money?” Oh sure; study the Bible very well.
The Word of God says clearly: the prosperity of fools will destroy them. It is the blessings of the Lord that maketh rich and adds no sorrow. You will prosper and you won’t know sorrow!
However, prosperity can take you much much deeper. I have already talked about restoration of destiny as one of the things that you get when you are delivered. But some of the things that I really like is that deliverance can turn you to becoming a terror to the devil. You used to run from witches and wizards; deliverance can turn the tide so that they will now become those who will be running away from you!
You can become someone who will be moving mountains. Acts 13:6-12. I know sometimes when we pray and make some decrees, some people feel, “are you not being too violent?” But if somebody says I will not reach my goal should I allow him to stay? So I decree:
– Anyone who will not allow you to reach your goal shall be uprooted!
One of my sons – great child of God, doing mighty things for God, was living in the same house in Ikeja. He was living in a flat upstairs and there was this witch living in the flat below – very famous one. Big big officers of law were coming to her for power. My son came and told me. I said, what are you doing? You’re upstairs, the devil is downstairs – Move the devil.
He said, “Sir, aren’t you forgetting that the Bible says we must be gentle as a dove?” I said I see. So if I get to my bedroom at night and I open the bedsheet and one way or the other I found that a poisonous snake had found its way under the bed sheet.
What you’re asking me to say is: Oh thou creature of God, you’re welcome. Sleep on, don’t worry I will be sleeping somewhere near you. Is that what you will do? So after sometime I didn’t see my boy. When I saw him, there were rashes all over his body. “What happened?” He said the witch reported him to one of the police officers that she is convinced that the bit upstairs must be a highway robber that people are always coming to his place at night to discuss. People were coming to pray, she said they were coming to plan how they will rob. So the policemen arrested my boy, threw him into detention.
It took a while before they said, this fellow is always praying, he can’t be an armed robber. When my son came to me I said, “serves you right. Harmless as dove, go back, continue to be harmless as a dove with the witch underground. The next time she is going to report you, you won’t come out.” He got home and commanded mountain to move and mountain moved.
Say: In the mighty name of Jesus, every mountain blocking my way, move tonight!
There is something I like much more than moving occasional mountains. It is that deliverance can move you to a level where you become a one man army for the Lord. As we found in text, Acts 8:5-8, only one boy – Philip, went to a city. When he arrived there every demon started running away. Single boy became an army of God, flushed out all evil forces in the town.
The result? There was great joy in the City.
– I am believing God for you, that you will visit your village, towns and drive out all the demons there!
Let me tell you a story and I will mention names because it’s a true story anyway. The Late Orimolusi, the one before the present one happens to be not just my son in the Lord but my friend and his Salvation was solid, I mean solid! Saved, sanctified, delivered and baptized in the Holy Spirit.
So he told the people in his town and this is a true story you can check to be sure I’m telling you the truth. He said: ‘Now, I’m a child of God so I’m not just ordinary Oba, an ordinary Traditional Ruler, no more idol worshipping in my town,’ and the people laughed at him. At the time he was saying that, the Egungun Festival was just some weeks away.
They told him, “we have been doing this before your father not to talk of you, we will celebrate our Egungun Festival.” He said, ‘Fine, we shall see’.
I think about 3 three weeks to the date when the Festival was to be celebrated, the High Priest who will lead the celebration died and so the people said: ‘No problem, there is a successor’. So, another fellow became high priest. But 10 days or so to the celebration, the new high priest died. The people said: ‘No problem there is somebody who can succeed that one’ and so they told him: ‘It’s your turn’! He said I refuse. They said: ‘Why not?’ He said: ‘The God of Orimolusi will kill me’.
– I hereby decree anybody who raises any hand or foot against your God shall die!
