RCCG 2023 MINISTERS’ CONFERENCE (DAY: 2 MORNING SESSION)

THEME: BEYOND EXPECTATIONS

MINISTERING: PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE

DATE: 4TH AUGUST 2023

BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 24:3-5

Let somebody shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENT.

After now we will be back by 3pm for the Afternoon Session. The National Overseer will direct us when he comes.

Then we will have break by 5pm to return by 7pm.

We will worship God till 8pm when I will come up.

How was the Prayer Walk today? That is what has kept me fit all these years. Make Walking a Part of your routine.

Convention Hymn!

Go ahead, sing your own Songs to The Lord. Praise Him, and let Him hear your voice.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name we have worshipped – Amen.

Tell two (2) or three (3) People:Jesus loves me – Amen!

Psalms 24:3-5;

3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

This Morning we want to look at Verse 4 – He that hath Clean hands, and a Pure Heart.

And each of the Sessions of this Conference we will have Segments of the Passage.

But this Morning we want to look at: CLEAN HANDS, AND A PURE HEART.

If the Lord tarries, we will look at the next Segment of that same Verse 4 in the Evening – “Who hath not lifted up his Soul unto Vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.”

So in the Evening, we will look at Vanity and Integrity.

Then as from tomorrow, we will visit some Mountains.

Like I told you yesterday, we will visit Mount Horeb, the Mount of Transfiguration and Mount Camel.

1. CLEAN HANDS

There is something called the Law of Priority.

When put in simple term, it means Uppermost in your Mind; what you are likely to say when in distress.

For Example, if you have been lost in the desert for three (3) days and they ask you, “what do you want?” Will you say a car? Definitely Not!

You would say, Water and you don’t think of it because it is topmost in your Priorities.

To climb to the Mountain top you require Clean Hands.

When God was speaking to man for the first time in Genesis 1:28; after blessing them He said, be Fruitful and Multiply.

That is Good News for those of you who are considered barren because it is God’s Promise to be Fruitful and Multiply.

And in the Name that’s above every other name, you will be Fruitful and you will Multiply – Amen.

If you are one of those who don’t like Planting Parishes, the Priority of God is to be Fruitful and Multiply.

And in the Name that’s above every other name, very soon when you come for Ministers’ Conference, this Auditorium will not contain us – Amen.

Because someone here or reading now would be Fruitful and Multiply – Amen.

“Every branch in me that beareth not Fruit” – What does God do to it? He cuts it down!

So don’t be surprised if you don’t see some People here next year because if they are not Fruitful, they would be replaced.

Because by the Special Grace of God, every Mixed Multitude in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), before this Convention is over, God will exposed them – Amen!

I. MOSES, What do you want? Moses said “Show me Your Glory.”

In Exodus 33;17-23, take note, Moses didn’t say, take me to the Promised Land – That is Secondary.

II. PAUL, What do you want? Paul said, “I want to know You.”

According to Philippians 3:7-11, Paul said Lord, knowing You is my Priority. He didn’t say, I want Title – Apostle, Intercontinental Overseer. No! He said, I want the Power that raised Christ from the dead.

That is why in Acts 19:11-12, God did Special Miracles through the hands of Paul.

Just the way we hear Testimonies of so many of you here or reading now on the Label of DMC; God has been doing Marvellous things in your Parishes. But we want Special Miracles that when we share them, the Name of the Lord will be Glorified.

III. ESAU, What do you want? I want food!

In Genesis 25:29-34, his younger brother was the one who reminded him of his Special Inheritance as the firstborn. But he said, forget it! Just give me food. It is the one who is alive that would ask for his Inheritance.

That’s why in Hebrews 12:16-17, the Bible says he sought for it with tears. When he cried and cried, his father said, there might be something left. But I have made him your lord – You will serve your younger brother.

So what exactly does God need? – CLEAN HANDS!

Whenever anybody wants to know if you are involved in a thing they say: “Have you a hand in it?

Have you a hand in this conspiracy? Have you a hand in this Culture of sin?

Some days ago, I was going round the Camp and I saw the first Miracle that happened on this Campground – Building of the International Office in eighty (80) days.

The Person that was put in Charge of that Project said: Daddy, you said you wanted the International Office to ready in eighty (80) days, with such number of rooms, Prayer Foyer, this and that. I did just what you instructed.

Eighty (80) days later, the International Office was ready, and fully Standing – Not a Single crack all these Thirty (30) years.

The biggest mistake I have ever made on this Campground is that I listened to those who said, “Daddy you have Children who are Engineers, let’s involved them.”

If we have been doing things the way my Daddy said, I won’t be where I am – Giving job to ‘children who are Engineers’. Thereby using the Wisdom of men, instead of following God’s Instructions.

Everywhere you have to take a wrong turn, God will reveal it to you – Amen!

When I said to the Pastors – God wants us to build a Church with Timbers up, no wall. They said it will be like a Tent. I know! A Tent that we won’t need fans, no door; everywhere you turn is an exit Point.

And no matter how many we may be, there has never been stampede and no one has been crushed.

They say, Daddy you rush things too much. How I wish I can rush even more!

Have you a hand in it? Are you involved?

If I say that before this year ends the Churches must double, you’ll hear, where are we going to get the People?

… But the Priority of God is – Be Fruitful and Multiply.

Clean Hands!

In 2 Corinthians 6:17; the Bible says: Touch not the Unclean thing; and I will receive you.

However, you wonder that throughout the Period of Covid-19 Pandemic; there was no Sanitizer for your face, but hand:

“Wash your hands, keep your hands clean” was all they kept on saying.

Clean Hands!

Then they said be careful, maintain distance, don’t shake hands.

1 Timothy 5:22 says, Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be Partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself Pure.

They said that if you shake hands, you’ll contact the virus.

Psalms 134:2 says, Lift up your hands in the Sanctuary, and bless the LORD.

Isaiah 52:11 says, Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no Unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye Clean, that bear the Vessels of the LORD.

You who is Preparing the Vessel of the Lord, be Clean!

Pure hands for those going to the Mountain top, because your hands are supposed to draw Electricity and distribute to those down.

In Exodus 17:8-13 – You know the Story; Moses went on top of the Hill. His hands were Clean; he was contacting Power from above and transmitting it down.

When his hands became weak, the two (2) boys – Aaron and Hur didn’t say our hands are four (4) yours are just two (2), “sit down let’s take over.” If they had done that, they would have lost the battle.

Later on you’ll discovered that Aaron’s hand could not heal.

When Moses went to get the Ten (10) Commandments, and Aaron was put in Charge, he made a calf idol for the People. Saying that he didn’t know what to do when the People needed a god to worship before Moses arrived.

He said, I asked them to bring their Gold, so they brought it. I threw their Gold into fire and made a god of calf for them.

I have no hand in it!

When you ask some Pastors, why is your Parish not growing? They would reply, I have no hand in it ooo. The workers are not cooperating, because they believe I won’t be able to call them Super Intercontinental Overseer, Pastor in Charge of Province, etc.

Keep your hands Clean! Because when there is sin, and you lay hands on the Sick, they will not be healed (Isaiah 59:1-2).

This is not the fault of God – Because Matthew 16:17-18 says you shall lay hands on the Sick and they shall recover.

I know there are two (2) ways to that – The fellow you are Praying for and yourself. Because I have Prayed for one like that before.

There was a close family friend of ours whose wife was sick. The doctors said, take her home there is nothing we can do for her.

They brought her to the Camp. God said, do not waste your Prayer.

I said, it is written, I shall lay hands on the Sick and they shall recover – As if God does not know what He wrote.

When I laid my hand on her, the Power would return as if it landed in a brick wall.

I ran back to the Altar and Prayed – Lord You are rich in Mercy.

God said: Because I have warned her serval times and she had remained adamant.

Whatever it is that will Prevent the Mighty Power of God from Penetrating, may God reveal to you- Amen.

I ran back to the Altar, before I got back she was dead.

At the end of the day, my hand was burning like fire.

Clean Hands are the hands that can summon the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit begin to move.

If you read Exodus 14:21-28, Moses stood before the Red Sea and raised up his hand – A Mighty Eastwind blew and the sea Parted!

The Testimonies we get concerning the handkerchief – “Daddy Prayed on the handkerchief and it raised the dead.”

Did I take the handkerchief in my hand?

No! I simply said, Lord saturate the handkerchiefs with Your Anointing.

Clean Hands!

Psalms 18:34 says, He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

… He taught my hands to do what? – War!

He reminded me of what happened at Ijebu Ode (DMC NOTES: This is a town in Ogun State Nigeria).

There was a little misunderstanding between us and the Occultic People; so they decided they were going to deal with us.

They put ‘Shigidi’ (DMC NOTES: “Shigidi” is called “Figurine”) in front of the Church.

And one of my sons took cutlass and smashed the “Shigidi” (Figurine) to Pieces.

Clean Hands!

If your hands are not Clean and you do that, you are dead!

They came to the Church for Physical confrontation; by the time he entered the Church, he took a step and staggered, by the time he took another step he fell.

You would think my son who smashed the “Shigidi” (Figurine) was hurt.

No! He is our New National Overseer (Pastor Sunday Akande) – He is not dead, he is alive and Healthy.

Clean Hands!

You have to Pray: Lord teach my hands to War!

In Mark 3:1-5, Jesus found a man with a whithered hand and the hands was restored and became useful: And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

Say Father, restore to me everything You created my hands to do.

… Let me quickly jump to the Second thing this morning.

And that is:

2. PURE HEART.

Proverbs 4:23 says, Keep thy Heart with all Diligence; for out of it are the issues of Life.

Matthew 12:34-35 tells us that your Bible is a Treasure house, that you should keep it Pure. Because out of the Abundance of the Heart the mouth speaketh.

Matthew 15:19 says, For out of the Heart Proceed evil thoughts, Murders, Adulteries, Fornications, Thefts, False Witness, Blasphemies:

Proverbs 23:7 says, For as he thinketh in his Heart, so is he.

God is the one Who knows the Heart.

And He decides which Prayer to answer because He knows what you want to do with the reply.

By the Grace of God, I have never Prayed in my Life – God give me Clothes, give me food. The only thing I ever asked God was that He should build for me a Boys Quarter in Mushin (Lagos Nigeria). I was coming from a Mansion in Ilorin.

“God Please, give me a Boys Quarters in Mushin (Lagos Nigeria) – One room for me, one room for my wife and one room for my children.”

He said, I have decided to give you a City.

Hallelujah!

What do you want? Why do you travel all over the world?

Lord, I want to see Your Church growing; I want to see Your Promises for the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) come to Pass?

That’s why I was surprised when someone said to me “Someone Planted a tree someone is sitting on.”

My father-in-the-Lord handed over the Church to me – I give God the Glory.

And I am glad the one he handed the Church to did not kill it.

Hallelujah!

You want everything in me to be reproduced in you – The Question is: Will you be able to handle it?

One General Overseer in Osogbo (Osun State Nigeria) said to God – All I want is one tenth (1/10) of what you have bestowed on Pastor Adeboye.

God said, are you Prepared to Pay the Price? He said Yes!

God told him to start with Forty (40) Days and Forty (40) Night Fasting.

He said, I am Okay, Lord.

What is your Purpose for being in Ministry? Why are you here for this Conference? Precisely, what have you come to achieve?

That’s why I was shocked when one of my sons said: “I have been serving you all these years, what’s my Gain?” Serving me?

I have taught us that Promotion comes only from God and He is never at fault.

“Oh, it is my Senior that did not Promote me!” People will come and go. The Heart of Kings are in the Hands of the Lord and He is the One to grab your Senior Pastor.

If God wants to Promote you, He will make sure Pharaoh does not Sleep – He will give Pharaoh two (2) frightening Dreams that will make him Promote you.

Don’t blame anybody, blame yourself.

They did “Baba gba ope wa” and they got Promoted. Will such Promotion Last? No!

DMC NOTES: “Baba gba ope wa” means giving bribes in Cash or in Kind to influence things in your favour.

If at all you get Promoted, you are rising so when you fall, the world would know!

Forgive me for sounding this way; Daddy said it is a Solemn Assembly and not an Ordinary Conference.

I was President of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) for three (3) years. They met during our Annual Convention; so they decided I should be the President. They brought the Letter to me here.

Who wants to be known? Who wants Title without the Power to Perform Miracles?

I asked my Daddy, He said I want you to go there to learn.

After my three (3) years tenure, they decided I should go again.

I said Daddy, if one goes to School, He has Passed. He said, Yes!

Even one Past President of our Nation met with the Pastors and said, have you not seen Pastor Adeboye? Make him the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) President.

Most Senior Apostle, Title without Power!

Pure Heart!

He is looking into your Heart. He is not going to release to you what is contrary to His Will.

Pure heart shows you are sure.

Isaiah 29:13 says, Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this People draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the Precept of men:

You serve Him with your lips!

Do you know God is watching you?

When you are singing, He knows because it is Natural to sing but the words make no meaning to you.

When you sing Songs like:

I am serving a God of Miracles
I know, yes I know;
I am serving a God of Miracles
I know, yes I know.

Do you really mean it?

If my Heart is Pure, my Praise of Him will be Genuine.

In any case, I want to go to the Mountain Top – If I go there and He opens my Heart and finds something contrary to His Will, He will kill me.

When Ananias and Sapphira tried to deceive the Holy Spirit; when Peter asked Sapphira, “have you a hand in this?” She said, No! Go and join your husband in the Grave!

Do you know God said, He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his Heart shall flow Rivers of Living water (John 7:38).

I know you will say it is “out of his belly” (not heart).

His word says what you eat does not defile, it is what is coming out of your Heart.

When we ask you to Memorise something, it means to learn it by Heart – I want God to Purge my Heart.

Let me share this with you – The Word of Knowledge, when you hear “there is someone here…”

You ask, how do you hear? God just drop them in your Heart!

And out of the Abundance of the Heart, the mouth speaks.

And you’ve seen it in action – Where you are Preaching on a high speed, you stop! You are arrested because something is dropped in your Heart; it’s sitting on everything else; you just must say it so as to be free.

You go to the Mountain Top with a Pure Heart, so that the River can flow through you.

We are going to Pray now!

*There will be no Time Limit – Take as much time as you want. Just make sure that you are satisfied before you leave. And then drop your Offering on your way out!

Thank you so much for staying all through to read.
