THEME: BEYOND EXPECTATIONS
MINISTERING: PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE
DATE: 7TH AUGUST 2023
BIBLE TEXT: MATTHEW 8: 14-17
Let somebody shout hallelujah – Hallelujah!
God is a Faithful God – I was told yesterday that my children from Mali travelled in a bus for five (5) days to come to this Convention.
That shows you that some People are hungrier than others; some People are more thirsty than others.
But somehow, I just have the feeling that the one who is going to get the biggest Miracle of all will shout the loudest Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
Amen! God Bless You.
Okay! Please, be seated.
I want this Convention to be the one you will never forget. But it’s up to you, you know!
I want to thank all of you Workers and House Fellowship Leaders who are here gathered and those reading now- I can never thank you enough. I’ve said it again and again that without you People it would be difficult for me to do my work.
By the way, I want to make a very Special Announcement and so Please, listen carefully.
The Announcement is for one Particular Person – After I finished Praying yesterday and I was going to my office, one young man was screaming, Daddy GO (somewhere to my right); he was rather aggressive. So I wanted to get to somewhere safe before attending to him. Because some of these People are so Strong, if they reach you at high speed they could knock you down.
So when I knew I was in a secured Place; I said, “go and find out what he wants.” But by the time they got back there, he has gone back into the crowd.
Please, if you are that boy (only one) who was screaming at me from my right hand side Last Night, Please report to the Ushers.
Because whatever it is you are asking God for, He wants to do it for you – Amen!
It’s only one fellow and my People would recognise you!
So if you are not the one and you just go and say, “I am the one” – God has no blessings for Loars.
Okay! Let somebody shout another Hallelujah – Hallelujah.
So thank you for all that you have been doing – The God who sees in Secret will Reward you Openly – Amen.
I want to remind you, Particularly all of you Workers – You would remembered I came round some years ago! I think it was before Coronavirus.
Telling you that you should make sure you plant a Branch of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in your Towns and Villages.
I think I gave you five (5) years then. And I told you that I would come back. It looks as if five (5) years is almost here. And so I am going to ask God to give me the opportunity to come round again;
So those of you who have not fulfilled the Assignment; as soon as you leave this Convention go and get the Land, go and build your own Church. “Charity begins at home!”
There must be a Branch of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in your own Hometowns and Villages.
When I got Born Again, the very first Place that I went to Plant the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) was in Ifewara (Osun State Nigeria) – First Place!
I had no money to build a whole Church; but there was a Cocoa Storehouse that had been abandoned.
I went to the Owner – Please Sir, I want to rent this Place. I will repair it, put it on good living condition. And then you and I would sit down and the rent that you would have collected from me (after we have agreed on what). Then we know how many years after this, before I begin to Pay you rent. He agreed!
So I got to the house, repaired it. And when we sat down to discuss rent, we discovered that I won’t have to pay him rent for seventeen (17) years. But long before Seventeen (17) years, God had given me enough ability to build a Church and to return his house to him.
Charity begins at home! Build a church in your Hometown or Villages – So if the Lord delays His Coming and it is time for you to go home, we will have a Place where we can conduct your Funeral Service, anyway.
… So if you haven’t done your own, as soon as you leave here, get to work.
God Bless You – Amen!
I also told your Senior Pastors – I don’t know whether they told you or not. I told them (at least 2 years ago) that at least in all our Regions, we should have Farms where we can begin to Produce food. God saw at that time that Famine is coming.
If we had started these Farms by then, at least the Youths would have somewhere to work, and you will have food to even help your Members. And then you’ll come to Convention and bring Harvest from your farm.
I know some of you have been giving me all manners of excuses – Oh, we couldn’t go to the farm because of Herdsmen.
I have told you before, “only failures make excuses.”
Is there any failure here? No! How many of you are Victorious? –
… Let me hear you shout a Victorious Hallelujah – Hallelujah.
Go home, and as many of your Parishes as Possible, start Church-Farm – Call the Angels in Heaven to Protect these Farms.
Anybody who comes there to try to destroy your farm would die on the spot – Amen.
Because your God is the Owner of Heaven and Earth. And one of His Names is Lord of Hosts.
Alright! God Bless You – Amen.
14 And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.
15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.
16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
Jesus visited the house of Peter and He stayed there for the night.
The first thing He did was that He healed Peter’s mother-in-law. And then in the Evening, the People came to Peter’s house for a House Fellowship. And Jesus healed all who came and set Free all those who were Possessed.
Your House Fellowship Center is not supposed to be an Ordinary Meeting Place – It is supposed to be a Place of Miracles, Signs and Wonders.
When you are a Leader of a House Fellowship, there should not be one Single Sick fellow in your house.
Because Jesus was just visiting the house of Peter – Imagine Jesus staying in your house; because the meaning of House Fellowship is that People gather together at the feet of Jesus.
And He does not just teach them; He will heal and set the Captives Free.
So if up till now your House Fellowship is Ordinary, it must Change tonight!
The Ark of the Covenant was in the house of Obed Edom for three (3) Months; God Performed so many Miracles, Signs and Wonders in the house of Obed Edom, that within three (3) Months, the whole Country heard about him.
… Three (3) Months!
Some of you have been House Fellowship Leaders for years, and Nobody has heard about you up till now.
Some of you, your House Fellowship is still the same size that it was last year – It shouldn’t be so!
Oh! We know some of you believe your Expectation as a House Fellowship Leader is that you come, sing, Study the Word of God, you Pray some little, little Prayers. If you have something to entertain them with, you may entertain them and they go!
What God wants from you is Beyond Expectations.
In any house where there is House Fellowship, like it happened in Mark 2:1-12, where Jesus was Meeting in a house (not a Temple) and they brought a man who was Paralysed from neck downwards there. And the crowd was so much, People could not go in through the door or window; And they broke through the roof so the man could get his Miracle.
When the House Fellowship is taking Place in your house, the crowd should be so much that People will be breaking through to get their Miracles.
I am led of my Father in Heaven to Challenge you that after tonight, your House Fellowship will no longer be Ordinary – Amen.
That the News of the Miracles, Signs and Wonders happening in your House Fellowship will spread, so that your house will become ‘Too Small” to contain the People – Amen.
I am believing God for all of you, that all your House Fellowship Centers now would become Branches of the Church before next year – Amen.
I am believing God for you, that if you are leading a House Fellowship now, within the next one (1) year you will have to find another day in a week where you can get a Location in your Street and Plant another House Fellowship there because your house cannot contain the People any more.
I am going to be asking you to Pray tonight, because your House Fellowship; that Place where you gather should be what God expects it to be – A Place of Prayer for all Nations.
In Isaiah 56:6-8, the Almighty God says, “there are some People I still need to bring in.” And as they come, I will be answering their Prayers, because my House shall be called the House of Prayer for all Nations.

The Expectation of God concerning you is that you will not be an Ordinary Worker, Ordinary House Fellowship Leader – Amen.
You know that Program we call ‘Digging Deep’ in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) – You want to know it’s origin?
It originated in my House Fellowship Centre (the one in my house).
We didn’t call it that back then, because we didn’t know the term to use.
I was Born Again and couldn’t keep what I had discovered to myself – “This is Life! And I have been wasting all these years, thinking I was doing fine.”
So I decided I will look for an opportunity to share with others.
I started in my office at the University of Lagos, with all those People that I know cannot say No to me – My Cleaner, the Messenger attached to me. You know those People that can’t say No when I say come!
And I told them – Out of the one (1) hour break because in those days they give you one (1) hour break when you are working in the University.
I said to them, out of the one (1) hour break, you will come and spend Fifteen (15) Minutes in my Office.
They said, what for Sir? To Study the Bible!
That’s why when I see some People who say they are being rascally or whatever name is they want to call themselves; by wearing big beards and so on. You see, you don’t even know the meaning of being that!
Come and see this “Little Boy” – In less than six (6) Months: during Break time at the University of Lagos in those days, you will not find a Typist in any of the Offices in the Faculty of Science. You would not find one! You won’t find a Cleaner, you won’t find a Messenger – Why? They’ve gone for Bible Study with Dr. Adeboye!
The matter got to a Stage that my Head of Department (HOD), Prof. Chike Obi (of Blessed Memory) called me to his Office – Adeboye, I said Sir! I won’t ask you not to Worship your God. But don’t let your Worship of God create a Problem for me in the University.
So I said, Yes Sir!
By then my Office was “Too Small” anyway!
So I told those who were coming for, shall we call it “Office Fellowship”! if you really want to know more about Jesus Christ, and they say we can’t do it now during break time. If you don’t mind and you are willing to wait after Office hours, I would be around to teach you.
In the meantime Surulere is where I was living. I had some friends, some Comrades; and I told them: you can come here and Study ooo. I have a little bit to share with you.
One of the Original Members of the House Fellowship in my house (in Surulere) is Pastor Gbadebo Lawal (of Blessed Memory) – Himself and his wife, myself and my wife were in the House Fellowship.
And then I was transferred to Ilorin (Kwara State Capital City).
As soon as I got to Ilorin, “I can’t keep this thing to myself!” And in any case, I’ve told God I didn’t want to be Ordinary. And so we started again in Ilorin.
Then we moved from having iit one (1) day in a week to two (2) days – We called one Digging Deep, we called the other Faith Clinic.
I am not asking you to do what I have not done. And I want you (my children) to be Greater than I – “Like father like children”.
SPECIAL PRAYERS FOR HOUSE FELLOWSHIP:
Stand on your feet and cry to the Almighty God – And you are going to Pray for thirty (30) Minutes. After Thirty (30) Minutes you will give your Offering.
Cry to the Almighty God and say Father; intervene in my Life. I don’t want to be Ordinary; my House Fellowship must not be Ordinary, my Church, Office, and Home must not be Ordinary. I want Miracles, Signs and Wonders Beyond Expectations!
Lord, I don’t want to be Ordinary, I want to Stand out for You. I want to be Outstanding. I don’t want my Anointing, my Testimony, my Family, to be Ordinary. I want to exceed Expectations. Lord God Almighty, help me. Intervene in my affairs.
In my House Fellowship let there be Nothing called Sickness at all. Let everybody who come to my House Fellowship receive a Miracle, Sign and Wonder. Bless my family so Mightily with Your Anointing, with Your Power, with Your Support; that the whole Nation would soon hear about it.
I don’t want to be an Ordinary Worker; I want to be Exceptional; I want to be Beyond Expectations. I don’t want to be an Ordinary Christian that People would just say well, he or she is a Christian. I must be Outstanding! Help me O Lord.
Help me to Pray: I don’t want my Prayer to be Ordinary. I want to be a Prayer Warrior that will Pray and shake my Nations; I want to be Extraordinary. I want my Strength to be Extraordinary, I want my Miracle and Family to be Extraordinary. A family where there is no Sickness, no Disease, no Demons.
I want anybody who steps into my house to receive Extraordinary Miracles. I want every Visitor to my house to know that they are going for Miracles. Let my house be a House of Fervent Prayer. I don’t want to a Lazy Child of God; I want to be a Prayer Warrior. Oh Yes Lord! I want to be able to Pray and shake Nations.
I don’t want Ordinary fever in my house – No ache, no pain – not in my house Lord! Because I want You to intervene. My house is Your house, and Your house is a House of Prayer, a House of Miracles, of Signs and Wonders.
O Lord God Almighty, help me! Transform me from tonight; let my Life become Extraordinary, Supernatural. Let my Anointing become Supernatural. King of kings and Lord of lords, help me.
You were in a house, they had to break through the roof to bring in someone to you; and the fellow got his Miracle. Whenever anybody is brought into my house,, let them walk out with their Miracles, with their Testimonies.
Help me Lord, empower me to Pray. Anoint me to seek You with all my Strength, with all my Mind, with all my Soul. Let my house become a terror to the devil. Let the enemies know, “you ever go near that house, you’ll be in trouble!”
From tonight onward, let there be dramatic Changes in every facets of my Life. Make me absolutely Extraordinary. I must be different O Lord, Superior O Lord, More Than a Conqueror O Lord, Extraordinary!
Please, don’t let my own House Fellowship be an Ordinary one. Let it be different, Powerful, known for Miracles, for Signs, for Wonders. That before the end of this year, let my Town know, “there is a Place in this Town, if only you can get there, you will get your Miracle.” Let that be said of my House Fellowship Center, Lord. Let that be said of my House!
I want to serve You diligently with all my Heart, and with everything I have. I want my house to be Your House: a Place of Prayer, Healing, Deliverance, Joy, Miracles, Signs and Wonders. I want to become Special for You Lord; that even when I am walking past, the devils would be telling one another, “here he comes!”
Help me Lord: I don’t want my House Fellowship to be just one of those Places. Let it be a Place Lord God Almighty, that Heaven would know, “God dwells here! There is a house in this Town where God dwells, where God answers Prayer.”
Let my house be the house where People would say, “we know that God lives in your house, we know that God answers Prayer in your house.” Let that be my Portion Lord! Let me be different Lord.
Have Mercy on me, Almighty God reach out to me tonight: transform everything that has to do with me from Natural to Supernatural, from Ordinary to Extraordinary.
Let my house be a Place Prayer would be going unto Heaven regularly, Powerfully and Gloriously. Make me Outstanding Lord. Let me Stand out even among my colleagues.
Lord God Almighty, I am available to be used of You. I am available Almighty God to do Your Will. I don’t want my Life to be an Ordinary routine: waking up, eating, going to work, coming back, sleeping. No, No, No!
I want every bit of me to be Unusually Divine. Even in my Office, let them know that this Young boy (girl) carries the Power of the Most High God.
Let my house be a Place no demon can come near; no thief can come near, no robber can come near because they know that God lives in this house!
