MINISTERING (DAY 3 AFTERNOON – PLENARY 6: APOSTLE ERIC ISRAEL OKERE (FOUNDER AND OVERSEER, WORLD CHANGERS INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN CENTER, NAIROBI KENYA)
TOPIC: OVERCOMING OBSTACLES TO ENLARGEMENT
DATE: 4TH OCTOBER 2023
BIBLE TEXT: 1 CORINTHIANS 16:9
As the Deer panteth for the water
So my Soul longeth after Thee;
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship Thee.
You alone are my Strength, my Shield
To You alone may my Spirit yield;
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship Thee.
I want us to Pray from Ezekiel 8:7-10 – Make sure you are Standing on your feet wherever you are.
Now listen, the devil does not need too many doors to deal with you. What he needs is a hole. If he can put a hole in your Life, it is easy to Project a door inside.
And as soon as a door is Projected into your Life, creeping things will creep in, abominable beasts will enter. It only starts with a hole; of one little sin. A hole of Compromise, a hole of lie, a hole of one little thing that you always do.
The next thing, the devil enters from there and Projects a door into the wall; and he enters regularly into your Life through that tiny hole which he has Projected a door. In fact, beasts have already entered.
1. I want you to Pray – Every hole that is in my Life right now through which the devil is creeping into my Life, I deal with you by Fire!
2. Every door Projected into my Life, I pull out the door now, in the Name of Jesus.
3. Whatever has crept into my Life; any beast already in my Life (cancer is a beast, sickness and anti Enlargement Spirit are beasts): die now! I pull you out of my Life. No space for you any more.
4. Finally, you are going to Pray with somebody (2 by 2).
The Bible says, one shall chase a thousand, two shall put ten thousand to flight.
We want to Pray for The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG); that for the next one hundred years until Jesus comes, you will make a Declaration: No hole would be put into us.
Every Plans to put holes where doors can be Projected; where Demons can be Projected into The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG); t will not Prosper! We seal the hole now.
Thank You Father. In Jesus’.Name we Pray – Amen.
Father we are Grateful. Thank You for Calling for this Holy Convocation.
You brought us from all works of Life – Different Countries and Continents, to come and drink from the Fountain of Life. We are very Grateful. Visit us now!
Principalities and Powers, I have come! For blessed is he who cometh in the Name of the Lord.
I bind you here and I command every work you are doing in anybody’s Life to stop now, in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
Let Jesus Christ be Glorified! Thank You Father. In Jesus’Name we Pray – Amen.
… Everybody say – Amen!
I want to give honour to our father, the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A Adeboye.
And our mother, Mummy Adeboye. Mummy, I was humbled when I heard you mentioning some of the things I talked about. I am very Grateful and amazed. I did not know she was listening to me.
One more time, appreciate our father and mother: They have led us by Examples over the years. We appreciate you Ma, we appreciate you Sir.
And we Promise Sir and Ma, we will not disappoint you. You will not remember any of us and be ashamed.
We will not be Children that bring Shame – We will not bring shame to God and to you, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
… Everybody say Amen – Amen!
I want to appreciate our Intercontinental Youth Pastor, Pastor Belemina Obunge. And all the Youth Pastors. We appreciate your all. The Lord Bless You Sir’s – Amen.
We will not disappoint you, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
You may be seated!
This Evening, my Assignment is to deal with Obstacles that disturb Enlargement – Overcoming Obstacles on the Path of Enlargement.
The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 16:9, For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.
The door of Enlargement, door of Glory, door of Explosion has been opened to us but there are many Adversaries.
That means you should get ready to contend with Adversaries on your Path to Enlargement + It is Compulsory, except you don’t want to grow.
I have discovered that there is no restriction to a dustbin – If you are on your way to a dustbin, there is no restriction. You can run in there any time you want.
But when you want to go to an important Place (where there are Treasures), you will pass through Securities.
I came to Nigeria sometime ago and I was called to get to Ask Rock.
If you see Security Sir – They took my Photograph everywhere; sent it first. And I was wondering, what is going on here?
They told me, “this is Aso Rock: they have to do all that to you?” Why? Because it is a Place of Treasures.

Enlargement is a Place of Treasures. If you must get to the Place of Treasures, excuse Sir and Ma; get ready to deal with Obstacles.
But one of the things you need to know is that, the God who is giving you Enlargement, has also given you enough Power to deal with Obstacles
I don’t know who needs to hear this – Every Obstacles that has stopped you before now, I stop them by Fire (Amen).
Anyone that has served as an Obstacle in your Life, I command them to be Uprooted by thunder (as I am talking), in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ – Amen.
And I command such Obstacles to be lifted now – Amen.
One of our Pastors called me sometime ago, saying some People were at his gate to assassinate him. I drove to his Place, and when I got there the Assassins have left.
Then I Prayed one dangerous Prayer – Whoever came here to threaten my Pastor, by the Power of the Holy Ghost I Command you to enter into error!
Go and harass somebody that would arrest and finish you. I Program you into the Spirit of Error. Because you have crossed your boundaries today, in the next Seven (7) days we shall hear your News, in the Name of Jesus!
… And the People there said Amen!
Forty eight (48) hours later, that same man went to threaten a Soldier in his house. They arrested him and called my Pastor to come and identify if that was the same Person who showed up in his house Forty eight (48) hours earlier. The Spirit of Error caught up with him!
Every Opposition that does not want you to have Peace, I Command the Spirit of Error to arrest them – Amen.
Whosoever does not want this Church to make Progress, I Command the Spirit of Error to arrest that fellow, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ – Amen.
SOME OF THE OBSTACLES:
1. PRIDE: This is a major Obstacle to Growth and Enlargement.
Proverbs 16:18-19 says, Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty Spirit before a fall.
Many started well but later became arrogant. When People are looking for Grace, they are very humble. But when Grace comes they become arrogant.
In 2 Chronicles 26:1-16, the Bible talks about Uzziah: Then all the People of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amaziah.
He did what was right because he had a Mentor: And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvellously helped, till he was Strong. But after he Prospered, he became Proud.
Pride destroyed Uzziah.
Many Destinies have been cut short by Pride.
I started Preaching when I was Ten (10) years. And I met Reverend Joe when I was Seventeen (17) years. God used him to impact my Life.
And one Man of God saw me one day in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Solid Rock Parish, Ojudo. He told me, young man, I see you going far in Life. “But you must make Humility become a deliberate effort in your Life.”
Else, as you rise, many things will be entering your Spirit. And the devil will amplify all kinds of things to you so that you will fall.
From that day, I took that advise very seriously.
Last year (2022) Daddy Adeboye came to Nairobi Kenya and I located him. When he was Praying for me, he laid hands on me and removed his hands. He said, “I know you will be Great!” I looked up at him. He repeated it again, “I know you will be Great – Make sure you remain humble”.
Then I realised that, for God to be sending Great Men of God, who have lived in Humility to talk to me; I need to make sure that I deal with Pride.
2. GREED: This is the Second thing that destroys Enlargement.
Many times you don’t know that God is taking you far; you get greedy and begin to look for what does not belong to you.
You want to collect another Person’s Prize, seat and Position. Do not collect another Person’s money as it will destroy your own.
Do not sit on another Person’s chair, it will take your own away.
Your seat is better, wait for your turn. Your chair is coming.
I don’t know who I referring to; but I see you sitting on the Throne very soon – Amen!
Don’t be greedy – Greed destroys Enlargement.
Ask Gehazi – it was greed that destroyed him, according to 2 Kings 5:26-27.
He wanted to receive Salary before he worked: But he collected Leprosy and destroyed his Ministry, his Life and his children.
He affected them Negatively by giving them Leprosy.
The Bible says, A good man leaveth an inheritance for his Children’s children.
Gehazi left Leprosy for his own children – So be careful of greed.
3. LOVE FOR MATERIALISM: When you start Pursuing money very early, the Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:10, that the Love of money is the root of all evil.
Money is not the root of all evil; it is the Love of money.
