Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. RCCG January 2019 Holy Ghost Service. Swimming In Glory.
TEXT : ISAIAH 60:1-3
Let’s lift our hands to the Most High God and begin to bless Him…
Thank God for God.
Thank God the Father, Son and Holy spirit.
Father, give me a new year present today.
We give you all the glory, we give you honor…
Almighty God, the Unchangeable Changer, the One who always I am, we worship You. Please accept our worship in Jesus’ name.
In this year in all our lives, please, do something new in Jesus’ name. Let the praise be Yours in Jesus’ name. Let’s bring over what we did last year, turn to three people and introduce yourself to them.
Say “Your Excellency, I am the Light of the world, Salt of the earth, Elect of God,…
Prayer For January Birthdays. Father, please give them priority. Please, let them come first in all they do. Let it be well with them.
The theme for the month of February is Swimming In Glory Part 2.
Happy New Year to you all. I want to ask you, what does ‘Happy New Year’ means to you? It means different things to different people.
To some, it means freedom, growth, marriage, childbirth, graduation, etc. To some other people, it means they are closer to grave.
It doesn’t matter who you are, there is a general meaning. It means that you are a year closer to the end of your stay on earth.
The moment a child is born, the journey to the end has begun. Happy new year means a year closer to the grave.
A day is coming that the Lord Himself will descend with a shout; however, some people will sleep before then.
A day is coming that the dead will awake too.
Some to everlasting life and some to everlasting suffering. This is a serious year! It is not a year to joke with at all.
My joy will be that you follow me diligently this year as we follow the scriptures. I assure you that if you do these, we’ll be seating at the mountain top this year. However, it is your choice.
This isn’t a year where you’ll think about your salvation, it is a year where you have to be promptly decisive.
If you die this year in Jesus, you’ll rise and reign with Jesus in glory: if you refuse Him, it’s shame.
Today is the day of your salvation, NOW is your accepted time. Hurry up! Cry to God, tell Him to save Your soul.
Tell Him to become your Lord and Saviour. Ask Him to receive you into the fellowship of God’s family. Thank You Saviour for Your Word of salvation.
Please save their souls and write their names in the book of life. Receive them to Glory whenever You return. Thank You Father, in Jesus’ name I pray.
Those of you who’ve given your lives to Jesus, I promise you that I’ll be praying for you from today.
Now open your bible to Isaiah 60:1-3
Swimming in glory
Swimming means you are making progress in water.
Making progress in a realm that is not yours
Proverbs 3:35 Glory is the opposite of shame.
Glory in intrinsically associated with light, shining light.
Consequently, Matthew 5:14-16, the new name Jesus gave us is Light. Light is useless unless it shines. Mathew 5:15
Light and Glory are the same. Matthew 5:14-16
Light is useless unless it shines.
Shinning means confrontation with darkness.
I decree into your life, you’ll shine this year. The opposite of light is darkness. To shine means to reign over darkness.
Genesis 1:1-4 The battle between light and darkness has been from the beginning.
Get ready to shine means to get ready to fight and Lord over darkness.
Let me announce to you, you have played church long enough. Light and darkness will collide, however, get ready to fight darkness.
Get ready to deal with gross darkness. Many have been trying to win souls by mere talk, no way anymore.
These guys will come when they see how you can deal with darkness. Light has no use when it isn’t shining. 1 Samuel 16:11-13.
I say it one more time, you’ll shine this year. 1 Samuel 17, 22:1-2 Shinning means you are going to fight with darkness, lions, bears, goliath,…
The fight is loaded in your favour because light has never loss to darkness John 1:4-5.
Lift your hands and say “From now on i won’t run from the devil.
Roman 8 :35 – 38
By the grace of God, one of your prayers before this year ends will be, “Father, wherever the Lions and the bears are, send them to me.”
Daddy says before the end of this year, you’ll begin to show the signs of a genius.
Swimming means operating successfully in a realm that is not yours. 1 Samuel 17 :32-37.
I pray for you today, you’ll be a different person from today.
Every drum of shame beating in your life shall break today.
All those who are plotting against your future will be fighting against themselves.
This year you will be seeing new openings.
As the Lord lives before the end of this year, when they say there is a crisis, you’ll attend to it and not wait for the G.O.
As the Lord lives, you will be raising dead, opening eyes of blind,…
1 Thessalonians 5:17
This year is a year of the Holy spirit, pray, fasting 2 Corinthians 11:27
I decree to you today, where you never thought you could reach, you’ll surpass this year.
Ephesians 4:24-25, 6:11-18 You’ll have to wear your swimming apparel to swim in Glory. Jesus said He’ll build His church. Is He a liar? No!
The devil is the one at the losing ends, the gates who are the elders of hell cannot prevail against Jesus’ Church.
Another story and we’ll pray. During this last Let’s Go A Fishing, we sent a very young deacon to start a Church in a small village. Where he got an apartment was next to an herbalist; of course, he didn’t know.
The herbalist planned a spiritual wreckage for my son because his customers diverted to my son. The herbalist planted a hen sitting on eggs.
The implication of this was a broken back and ultimately death for my son. My son gave thanks for the hen, killed it and ate it. Of course, he found it in his one room apartment.
The herbalist who expected his death the next day was surprised to see a vibrant young man who greeted him.
Guess what the herbalist did? He surrendered.
Power passes power. It’s time to pray.
1. Praise the King of Glory
In the mighty name of Jesus,
2. In the mighty name of Jesus, I am the Light of the world. I will shine bright this year.
3.I the mighty name of Jesus, i will destroy the whole force of darkness in my family this year.
4. In mighty name of Jesus, every lion, bear, Goliath that come my way this year are dead.
5. In the mighty name of Jesus, i will reach the mountain top this year.
6. In the mighty name of Jesus, my life will draw thousands from the kingdom of darkness in to the kingdom of Jesus.
7. Personal request.
In the name of the king of Glory, beginning from now you will shine, you will never run from witches again, every yoke of darkness against your life is destroyed.
This year, you’ll reach the top.
You will be triumphant.
