Tonight Father, let Your blood speak for us, let Your blood speak for our families, Let Your blood speak for our churches, and let Your blood speak for Nigeria and before we leave here tonight.
Father let everyone of us sing a song of victory, thank You Almighty God. And all Your children who are listening all over the world, please in Your own miraculous way visit them also in Jesus’ Name. Thank You Father, in Jesus mighty name we have pray. Amen.
Let someone shout halleluyah.
Now I want you to shake hands with three or four people, prophesy to them, say God will touch you tonight; if you believe that then say amen loud and clear. God bless you, you may please be seated.
How many are expecting something special this Good Friday? If you are expecting something special let me hear you shout halleluyah.
I want to thank God for the Pastor who spoke before me. As an evangelist, he has already done the work of an evangelist; prepare a ground for me, well! I don’t mind telling him that was a very good job, he did a good job.
Mark chapter 10 is the passage I was planning to use and he chose that one too, he must have stolen it from me somehow. Mark chapter 10 verse 13 to 16, he approach it from the Evangelist angle, I will approach it from the Pastor angle.
The theme for tonight is ‘TOUCH ME OH LORD’.
“And they brought small children to Him, that He should touch them: and disciples rebuke those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, He was much displeased, and said unto them, suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And He took them up in His arms, put His hands upon them, and blessed them.”
Tell your neighbor one more time God will touch you tonight. Whenever God touches anything, that thing experiences a miracle.
If He touches anything at all, that thing experiences a miracle. In John chapter 6 verse 5 to 13, as we discussed, those of you who were here for the Holy Communion last night, John 6 verse 5 to 13, Jesus touched ordinary bread and the bread began to experience multiplication; the lunch of a small boy became so multiplied that it fed a huge crowd five thousand men not counting women and children.
That is why I am sure that when God touches you today, you will begin to experience multiplication.
In Luke chapter 7 verse 11 to 15, the Bible tells us of a story of a widow who was going to bury her only son; Jesus came along and touched the coffin, when He touched the coffin, the coffin became empty because the fellow that coffin thought it was going to contain for eternity got up and walked out of the coffin.
I prophesy to someone here today that the coffin that the enemy had prepared for you shall remain empty forever.
In 2king chapter 4 verse 1 to 7, the Almighty God touched the oil of a destitute widow and the oil just kept on flowing, the oil kept on flowing, the oil kept on flowing so much that, not only the widow was able to pay off her debt, the Bible says she lived on the left over for the rest of her life.
She never knew poverty again.
I Have told you the story before of a young man, at least an elder now sitting somewhere up here, who came to us completely destitute, came for prayers, he said I don’t know what to do anymore everything are now not just zero but below zero; and I prayed for him and God moved me to take the little money I had in my pocket, and am telling you it was little because I was poorer than I am then, but the Almighty God spoke through me as I handed over the money to him and said this money will never finish- I have never read about that before but it came out of my mouth.
Today by the grace of God that money has not finished; the man now has at least two houses that I know of.
I am decreeing to someone here tonight my God will touch the money in your pocket and that money will never finish.
So when God touches anything, that thing experiences a miracle.
When He touches a human being: when He touches a man or touches a woman, that person experiences at least a miracle. It could be;
When He touches a man the fellow will experience resurrection.
Thank You my Father and my God. The LORD said there is someone here tonight whether here on this ground or you are listening to me by television, by radio or the internet, is not made clear, but your cry is that, next time when they bring children for their special Holy Ghost Service in April you will come with your own children too.
The word had gone out and nobody can bring it back, so get ready for your children.
So there was this Shunamite woman, the man of God said you are going to have a son, she didn’t believe it, but God has spoken so the baby came and of course she had tremendous joy and of all a sudden a day came when the devil came in and kill the boy.
Ha! And the woman said no I didn’t know I will have this kind of joy, now I have had it the devil is not going to take it from me.
She cried to the man of God, the man of God came and laid on that child three times and the child came back to live.
You know whenever God touches a man there is a restoration of hope. A restoration of joy, a restoration that which money cannot buy.
I decree tonight, anything that the enemy has already stolen from you when God touches you today it shall be fully restored.
Some of you will remember the story of one of my covenant partners,
and may Almighty God bless all my partners in Jesus’ Name,
who had been barren for a very long time and then she became one of my partners and then she became pregnant and went abroad to register for delivery because she want to take care of the pregnancy with every care possible.
And then she did a test and discovered that the baby in the womb was already HIV positive and they were going to evacuate.
And she said no, you can’t evacuate, you are not evacuating anything.
She cried to God and said, how can this be? Iam a partner with Your son, she was crying to God in the night.
And God spoke to her and said, don’t worry, I have already taken care of the situation and I will give you a sign before you get back to Nigeria.
Then lo and behold, she boarded the plane at Heathrow, as she was there in the same plane I was, she saw me and began to scream.
And she said, aha this’s the sign, this is the sign, God has given me the sign.
Everybody in the first class was wondering what’s wrong with this woman who was screaming.
Anyway, we prayed a simple prayer and the Almighty God, the One who can reverse the irreversible not only provided total healing for the baby in the womb, but the husband that infected the baby was healed at the same time.
When God touches you today the healing will not be only for your children, but for the entire family.
When God touches a man he experiences victory.
In 1King18 verse 46
Thank You Father. The Almighty God said there is someone here tonight He said the fire ranging in your home shall be put out this week.
Thank You Daddy. The LORD said there is a woman here that there is a huge crisis between you and your children, Daddy ask me to tell you I will resolve the crisis.
Thank You Father. The LORD said there is someone here tonight, you are very frightened He asked me to tell you, relax I will take care of you.
Now 1King chapter 28 verse 46, the Bible tells us that the hand of God was on Elijah and he outran Ahab in his chariot.
The king was riding in his chariot, Elijah was running on foot and he outran Ahab. When God touches you He gives you the ability to outrun your enemies.
Iam prophesying to someone here today that all those who have been pursuing you all these years will never even see your back again.
God touched David: 1Samuel chapter 17 verse 34 to 51, and because the hand of God was on David, he was able to kill a lion, he was able to kill a bear, he was able to destroy Goliath.
So when the hand of God touches a man He gives him the kind of victory that brings total destruction to the enemy.
In Judges Chapter 15 from verse 14 to 15, the hand of came on Samson and in the twinkling of an eye, he was able to wipe out all those who thought they were destroying him.
Some of you know the testimony of one of my sons, l have shared it here before, some people ganged up against him in his place of work because of his Christian standing and they decided they will eliminate him.
He came to the Holy Ghost service and the word of God came and said,
There is someone here, the enemy have just concluded a meeting to finish you, long after they have gone you will still be rising.
The following week, all those who held the meeting to destroy him were all retired and the one they wanted to destroy was promoted.
I will prophesy to someone here today, even before tomorrow morning all those who are holding evil meetings concerning you they shall be disbanded.
When God touches a man he becomes spiritually activated.
If God touches you suddenly the power of the Holy Spirit that is already in you, dormant will suddenly begin to function.
In Acts chapter 1 verse 8, the Bibles says when you receive power, that you shall receive power when the Holy Ghost is come upon you and then you become a witness onto God in Jerusalem, in Judea, in Samaria and to the almost part of the world.
Whether you know me or not; those who know me in those days they knew that I was a very shy person, I preferred to just stay quietly with my mathematics; I didn’t want anyone to disturb me and so I use my mathematics as an excuse for just staying quiet.
Then the hand of God touched me when the Holy Spirit came and I can’t keep quiet anymore.
Everywhere I go now I must tell people about Jesus Christ.
I am praying for someone here today too who has been quiet concerning your faith the hand of God will touch you tonight in Jesus’ Name.
In 2King 3 verses 11 to 23, the Bible says the hand of the LORD came upon Elisha and he began to prophesy.
You know, how do you know a true prophet?
A true prophet of God will tell what will we happen long before they happen, they will tell you what will happen that humanly speaking, it is impossible to believe, and then that is why,
I’m prophesying to someone here tonight it is going to be well with you, it doesn’t matter what the situation may look like now it is going to be well with you.
Now when we say, if God touches a man he will experience a miracle. The question then comes and I think have shared this one with you before, what happen if God does not touch me how do I get in contact with Him.
The Bible teaches whether God touches you or you touch God the result is the same.
So because we have a huge crowd here tonight and we have several other millions listening all over the world;
Suppose God wants to touch only one person how are we going to know who He will touch?
Well, if God doesn’t touch me if I go ahead and touch Him you we get the same result, so I can be the one who will say I’m going to touch God.
How do you touch God?
In Mark chapter 5 verse 25 to 34, the Bible tells us about the woman with the issue of blood.
Jesus wasn’t looking around praying for people He was just going and there was a multitude following Him and this woman said well am not asking Him to come and touch me, but I will go and touch Him, and the woman touched the hem of the garment of Jesus and she got her miracle immediately.
In Mathew chapter 14 verse 35 to 36, the Bible tells us that many people came together all saying all we want to do is just touch the hem of the garment of Jesus and the Bible says as many as touched Him were made whole.
So one fellow can touch Him and receive a miracle, many people can touch Him and they will all receive their miracles.
So very quickly we have to be very brief tonight because of the children, this is a special night for them.
How do I touch Jesus?
There are various ways you could touch Him.
Thank You Father. The LORD said there is someone here tonight, He said somehow you know it, no prophet told you, but somehow you know that the plan of God for your family is a very big one, He asked me to tell you I will bring it to pass.
In 2King chapter 4 verse 8 to 17, that great woman of the Shunamite touched God by persistent giving she started by giving food to the man of God and went ahead to providing a house for the man of God until God said you touch me alright now I will respond- Persistent giving.
How else can I touch God?
Finally, how can you touch God?
So you can touch God by faith, you can touch Him by giving, you can touch Him by relentless prayer, you can touch Him by abundant praise.
I heard just a testimony this week that someone who had been sick for a long time suddenly had a vision and the Almighty God showed him a scale.
You know the kind of scale that, if you see the picture of a scale in the front of any court of justice, you will see a scale one side here and other side there.
And in that scale that he saw, one part of the scale was down to the ground loaded, the other was up in the air.
And God spoke to the fellow and said; you see that scale it represents you: one side is full of prayers the other side which should be full of praise is empty.
And God said to her; when your praise balances your prayer, you will get your healing.
And she said, is that it?; she woke up, this is an extraordinary visitation from God, she said no problem LORD, I will stop praying for now and I will praise You until the praise section balances the prayer section.
For two days and two night, she did nothing other than praise God and all of a sudden she discovered she was instantly made whole.
I’m praying for someone that, tonight your praise will balance your prayer in Jesus’ Name.
Now when God touches children they become blessed in the text that we read; Jesus said, let the children come unto Me.
The Pastor that spoke before me had already explained that unto you, forbid them not, thank God he has done that one for me too, for theirs is the kingdom of God.
I like that point that he made- the kingdom of God belongs to children.
You don’t treat them well they won’t let you come, they say the kingdom is our own and it belongs to us children.
Then finally, when these children came to Jesus, He carried them in His arms and bless them.
Whenever Jesus touches a man or a woman or a child that fellow will be blessed.
And then, many at times the major difference between a child and an adult is that the child is innocent.
I think that the Pastor that came before me, told you that one too. There is no sin separating between them and God, so when God wants to touch them nothing stands between the hand of God and their head.
You know there is this passage in Isaiah 59 verses 1 and 2 it says the Hand of the LORD is not shortened that it cannot save, neither is ear heavy, that it cannot hear and it said but your sin your iniquities have separated between you and your God that He will not hear.
In other words, it is sin that is hindering Hand of God in the life of us adults.
The reason the children get their own blessing so easily is because they have no sin.
They are innocent by the grace of God they are innocent so when God wants to touch them His Hands touches them straight away, that is why tonight you need to pray a prayer even if you are already born again you need to pray a prayer that anything that can stand between me and the blessing of God tonight the Almighty God will please wipe it away.
And then if you have not even born again, you need to come to Jesus so that the blood of Jesus Christ, will wipe away your sin and the Hand of God will be able to reach your head without any obstruction at all.
So if there is anyone here tonight and you are not yet born again and you want to surrender life to Jesus Christ, am going to count from one to fifteen because I can see that some of you are very, very far away, but you must come here before I say fifteen so that I can pray for the salvation of your soul, so that the blood can wash away any sin that can stand between you and the touch of the Almighty God.
So if you want to give your life to Jesus you better begin to come now as am counting – one, two, three, four, sin is the insulator that can prevent the Hand of God from touching your head.
Come, let the blood of Jesus wash away your sin, come and surrender your life to Him, let Him save your soul and then there will be nothing to stand between you and the Hand of God.
…five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, thank you those of you who are clapping whatever you touch will prosper, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, those of you who are on the way keep coming don’t wait, I mean make sure you come here before I finish praying.
So all of us in the front and those who are coming; talk to the Almighty God and say, please save my soul, wash away all my sin with your blood and I will serve for the rest of my life.
Please LORD anything that can stand between me and Your touch, wipe it away with Your blood tonight and I will serve You for the rest of my life.
And the rest of us, let pray that prayer for ourselves too – anything that will stand between me and Your touch tonight, any sin whatsoever any acts of disobedience my Father and my God please wipe it away with Your blood.
Those of you in front and those of you on the way, please pray and say; please save my soul, give me a new beginning, let Your blood cleans me from all my sins and I will serve You for the rest of my life, I will serve You for the rest of my life. Let’s talk to the LORD for a moment, cry unto Him for one more minute and say, LORD have mercy on me, wash me clean with the blood that You shed on Calvary.
Please don’t let anything stand between me and Your touch tonight, don’t let anything stand between me and Your touch tonight.
Everything that can be an insulator, that can hinder You from touching me my Father and my God, please let Your blood wipe it away tonight, let Your blood wipe it away tonight, thank You Father, in Jesus mighty Name we have prayed.
Savior, I want to bless Your name one more time, thank You for the Power mighty that is in Your blood. Am praying especially for those who have come forward to surrender their life to You tonight, save their souls in Jesus’ Name, let You blood wash away their sins in Jesus’ name, write their names in the book of life in Jesus’ Name, give them a brand new beginning in Jesus’ Name, from this moment onward each time they call on You answer them by fire in Jesus’ Name.
Father, I’m also praying for everyone here tonight, everyone crying to You that You will wash us clean from anything that can stand between us and that miracle touch of Yours; please wipe it away with Your blood in Jesus’ Name.
At the end of everything tonight, let everyone of us have real cause to glorify Your Holy name, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Amen. Praise the LORD.
I want to congratulate those of you who have come forward to give your life to Jesus, I want to assure that by the grace of God from now on I will be praying for you; so am going to need your names, your address and your prayer request. See some counselors, counselor you need to move a little faster God bless you.
They will give you some cards which you will fill very quickly and return back to them and I promise you I will be praying for you.
As soon as you have filled the form, then you can go back to your seat then we’ll wait till you have finished before we proceed any further.
While they are doing that, I think the rest of us will keep on worshiping God, singing that various songs that you can sing about the blood of Jesus Christ because there is power mighty in that blood.
Over to you, choir.
Alright, now let’s quickly write down our prayer points, we would pray for a short period tonight so we can attend to the children.

Hold your neighbour and pray for your neighbour with all your heart and say Father, this child of Yours touch his/her body, soul and spirit- go ahead talk to the Almighty God, body, soul and spirit touch this your child.
Almighty God this child of yours touch him, touch her, body soul and spirit.

The Almighty God will touch your finances, your family will never know poverty again, the Almighty God will empower you tonight, no enemy will ever catch up with you again, the Almighty God will empower you tonight, you will begin to win souls for His kingdom in Jesus name.
From tonight onward, because the hand of God will be on you, when you touch the sick, they shall be healed, when you command demons they shall go out, wherever you go from tonight, God will open doors unto you, and He will answer your prayer by fire.
So shall it be in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Father, let the anointing of tonight make a way for me, that anointing that you had already place on me tonight, let it make a way for me; LORD, let it make a way for me, in every facet of my life let the anointing of tonight make a way for me.

Let someone shout a big halleluyah.
