Luke 7 v 11 – 15 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people. Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and much people of the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.
The Lord is going to have compassion on somebody here tonight.
Here is a story of a widow; who had an only son and the devil went to the house of the person with an only son and killed that one son. That is why the devil is such a bad devil.
And as they were going to bury the only son, so many things were going on in the mind of the widow; who did I offend to this extent? They killed my husband and the only son I have, they killed him also! How many enemies have I anyway? Why is my life so full of bitterness? Am I the only one in town? Why is everything so hard for me? Why am I reduced to zero? Because I have no one else now; husband gone, son gone. Why is all my way blocked, how come I don’t even have an open way for me to walk in?
Why has death constituted himself to a giant blocking my way? And very soon all these sympathizers will be gone. And I will be left alone! In a moment, I will be alone with my sorrow. When will the mountain of my life move? When will the storm barraging me stop? When will I ever come out from the valley of sorrow?
You can imagine thousands of questions going on in the mind of this widow.
Suddenly the procession stopped. Because someone had come on the scene and said to her, am not sympathizing with you, am commanding you, stop weeping! Am sure she must have looked at him and said sir, are you alright? With all these my problems… You asked me to stop weeping?, but she said nothing, she just looked at him, as if to say well, you don’t know what is going on here, but in the next moment, something happened!
There is someone here tonight, in the next moment, something will happen in your life.
The Almighty God is walking through this ground right now and he is going to stop beside someone and say to him or her, stop weeping. Who is that fellow? If you are the one let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Maybe you too have many enemies, but remember what God said to the children of Israel, by the mouth of Moses; in Exodus 14 when they looked back and they saw so many enemies matching after them, enemies that have been enemies for more than 400 years. Those who were enemies of their fathers and grand fathers. God spoke through the mouth of Moses and said to the children of Israel, he said look at them very well, because the enemies you see tonight, you will never see them again.
And my Daddy is speaking through me tonight and he is saying to someone here tonight, all the enemies that have been pursuing you all these years, you will never see them again.
Why? Because God will arise for you!
Psalm 68 v 1 – 3 says let God arise and his enemies will scatter, in the name that is above every other name, God will arise for you.
Maybe your own life too is full of bitterness, there is a God, a God who turned Mara waters to sweet, that God is still on his throne. In John 5 v 2 – 9 the bible tells us the story of a man, who had a history of sorrow. For thirty eight years, it was one sorrowful year after another, but one day, Jesus came on the scene and the history of sorrow ended.
I have good news for someone here today, every year that has passed, had been full of sorrows for you and it looks as if this year is going to end like that, but because there is a God in heaven, who speaks and it is done, from tonight onward you shall weep no more.
In 2 king 2 v 19 -22 for years, for generations, Jericho was under a curse, there was no more death, no more bareness, because God spoke through his servant and tonight, the same God is speaking through one of his servant.
And tonight through one of his sons and I am saying to you right now, every curse that has been in your generation, that has been causing you sorrow, will end tonight in Jesus name.
Maybe for you things are hard, like the woman would have said things are hard “things are hard” everybody knows what it is to be poor, it can be very difficult to be happy when you are poor, but there is a God who brought water out of the rock; that God is still on his throne. The earth is his own and the fullness thereof, silver belongs to him, Gold belongs to him according to Haggai 2 v 8. And the Almighty said in Philippians 4 v 19 but my God shall supply your needs, according to his riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.
I know there might be some people here who will be saying, Christmas is coming, when everybody will be celebrating, but what do I have to celebrate with?
In the Might name of Jesus Christ, between now and the end of the year, your breakthrough will come.
This woman said, I am down to zero, I have lost everything. Everything that meant anything to me, I have lost them all. I have good news for you; the woman didn’t know help was on the way. Like the widow of Zarephath in 1king 17 v 8 -16 she said I am going to eat my last meal and me and my son will go ahead and die, but while she was getting ready to die, help was on the way.
I decree in the name that is above every other name, that even before you get home in the morning, God will send help to you. Help is on the way!
Bartimeus didn’t even know help was coming, he woke up and he thought he will die a beggar, but help was on the way.
In the name that is above every other name, you will not miss your own help.
Or maybe your ways are totally blocked, you don’t even know where to turn now; you turn right; it is blocked, you turned left; it is blocked, you look forward it is blocked, you can’t even go back because the back is blocked.
There is someone coming who is called the Way. Jesus Christ said I am the way.
I have good news for you, ways will open unto you.
Thank you father, the Lord asked me to tell someone here tonight, he said before this month is over, you will discover that God does not make mistake.
Daddy says there is a student here tonight; he said I am going to move you, from below average to above brilliant.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight; he said I will touch you twice tonight.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said in spite of every efforts, he said you have always be a failure, Daddy asked me to tell you, things will change from tonight.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he asked me to tell you to get ready for a major transformation.
So your ways is totally blocked, maybe all you need is not tears but praise, because in Joshua 6 v 20 when the wall of Jericho blocked the way of Joshua, they didn’t weep; himself and the children of Israel, they didn’t weep, all they did was praise God. In 2chronicle 20 v 20 – 25 when some mighty Kings gathered against Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat didn’t weep, he praised God and the enemies destroy themselves. Do you know one of the reasons why you won’t weep again; is that all your enemies will finish themselves off?
In Act 16 v 25 – 34 when the enemies thought they have got Paul and Silas, not only were they in prison, they put them in chains, they didn’t weep but they praise God. When they praised Him, doors were opened.
Maybe I should give you two minute, just to praise God, like you have never done before, maybe we will see something happen. Just praise him…in Jesus mighty name we worshipped.
Together lets shout one big halleluiah
The Lord said there is someone here tonight; he said you are fully aware of some people who are determined to terminate your life. The Lord asked me to tell you, i will terminate them all.
Maybe right now, there is a giant blocking your way, maybe there is somebody in authority who said ”I am not going to allow you to succeed.”
But you remember the story of David and Goliath, when David saw Goliath, he didn’t weep, he challenged him in the name of the Lord.
And for every one of you here tonight, every Goliath blocking your way, before the sun rises, shall be dead in Jesus name. And if he didn’t die, according to Psalm 23 v 5 the Lord that prepared a table before you in the presence of your enemies, will shame all those who says you will not succeed in Jesus name.
Thank you father, Daddy asked me to tell you a story, true story. Several years ago, my two last sons were in command school Ibadan. So on their open day, we went to see them, myself and my wife, we went with food; pounded yam, the kind we know they don’t eat in Command. We got there, all parents were there, the children were there running up and down, enjoying themselves. And I noticed a boy; he stood alone, looking towards the gate. Am sure he was expecting his parents, looking and looking and looking and nobody came. So I went to the boy, “you are expecting your parent?” he said “yes sir”. “Do you think they are coming?” he said “I am not sure sir,” so I said come, I took him to join my children, he eat with them, when we were leaving we gave him some money.
The reason God asked me to tell you the story, he said there is someone here tonight; all those you thought will help you, have not shown up, the Lord asked me to tell you “I will help you”.
That widow needed an urgent miracle, because if Jesus had not been there on time to raise that dead young man, very soon the boy would have been buried and that would have been the end of it all.
There might be somebody here tonight, who needs an urgent miracle, like in 2 kings 4 v 1 – 7 the creditors came. Woman, if you don’t pay our debt, by tomorrow we will sell your children, that widow needed an urgent miracle, in less than 24 hours, the solution came.
I know there be somebody here who needed a miracle urgently, I believe God with you that before the sun rises tomorrow, and your tears will be changed to laughter.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, who is in the secret society, in a cult and your heart is saying to you, get out but another section of the heart is saying, you know if you get out they will kill you. Daddy asked me to tell you whoever you are, that if you run out to the altar now, he will guarantee not only your freedom but your safety. You want to get out, but you are afraid, daddy says if you come out now, he will not only guarantee your freedom, he will guarantee your safety. I will count from one to seven, by the time I say seven., if you are not already out, I know you don’t want to come, I will continue with the programs, am counting now …one, two, three…..seven
If you are here tonight and you have not given you life to God, come now. Brethren, stretch your hands towards these people and ask that the Almighty God will arise for them, and set them free from every yoke of bondage, that God will cancel every evil covenants in their lives and grant them special protection from now on, pray that God will make them free, absolutely free from now on. Thank you deliver, deliver them oh Lord from every shackles of Satan...
… In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Lord of host, you have never lost a battle, these your children wants to get out of the company of darkness, father set them free in Jesus name. The power that is in your blood, the blood that conquers Satan, let it conquer for them in Jesus name. Lord God Almighty, I pray tonight, that you will build a fire around them and the enemy will never be able come to them again, let them remain free for ever, let them be save forever, let them remain secure forever, let them spend the remaining part of their lives serving you. In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Let somebody shout halleluiah! go in freedom, it will be well with you now, just keep going and keep rejoicing, let’s give God a big round of applause.
So if you need an urgent miracle, the Almighty God is more than sufficient, he has done it before, he will do it again, maybe there is a big mountain blocking your way in Psalm 90 v 1 -2 the Bible says before the mountain were brought forth, he is God, before the problem started in your life, God was there and the one who knew the foundation of your problem, also knows how to uproot the mountain. In Zachariah 4 v 6 – 7 he says it is not by power or by might, he says it is by my spirit, says the Lord of host. He says who are thou oh mountain, before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain.
I decree tonight, in the name that is above every other name, every mountain blocking your way shall become plain in Jesus name.
Maybe you are in a storm and the storm is beaten very hard, don’t forget there is a God, whose name is prince of peace. All he asked to do is say peace and the storm will cease. In Mark 4 v 35 – 41, you know the story very well, Jesus was in the boat sleeping and there was a storm and the disciple thought maybe he didn’t even know we are about to sink, but when they woke him up, he spoke one word, peace be still and suddenly the storm went to sleep.
I know there might be some people here tonight the storms are raging, physically, financially, maritally Or even spiritually because Jesus is alive forever, I speak to those storms and I say storms, be still in Jesus name. After all the bib le says that at the mention of the name of Jesus all kneels must bow, your storm will bow, to the name of Jesus now.
And so when he said to that woman, weep not, it was because he knew he was going to remove the source of sorrow. He wasn’t ridiculing the woman, he wasn’t joking, when he said weep not, it is because he knew that very, very soon, the woman will be shouting for joy.
When the almighty God said to me that the theme for November is WEEP NOT, I was somewhere in the bush praying, when all of a sudden he said the theme for November is weep not. Alone in the bush I began to dance, why? Because I know what that means,
I know that there is somebody here tonight, no doubt about it. Long before the end of November, your problems will be over.
I will just tell you a story then we will go and pray, because I know we just need to seek his face tonight. It is a story some of you have heard before. But there might be one or two people who had not heard it before.
We were in the first auditorium beside the road, we were having programme like this, and I ask everybody to pray, it is time to pray, now when I ask people to pray, I always pray too, because I need prayers. And the way I was taught when I was young, that when you are praying, you close your eyes, not like you people nowadays, who open your eyed when you are praying.
I have even seen some people when they say pray, that is the time they are taking pictures, why - because they have no problems.
So I asked people to pray and I close my eyes and I was praying. Suddenly I asked God saying, Son, open your eyes. I almost said to Him, but daddy I am praying! He asked me to open my eye, so I opened my eye. We were much fewer than this then. And he pointed a woman to me in the congregation, drenched in tears, he said to me, go to her, and tell her, stop weeping.
So I went down from the altar, went to the woman, tap her by the shoulder, because she was gone in prayers. I said sister, God said “stop weeping” and suddenly she brightened up because she knew at last, God has heard.
Is there anyone here tonight, that you can feel it, deep inside you that at long last, God has heard!
God said stop weeping, quickly she wiped away her tears and she cheered up.
I didn’t say more than that because that is all God asked me to say. About a year later, I was at home when the woman came and said, “do you remember me?” I say how many people will I remember? She said I was the woman who was weeping, that God sent you to tell stop weeping.
And she told me her story; she said I have been barren for so long. The relative of my husband says they are going to drive me out. When I was weeping that day, I was weeping in sorrow and now see my baby!
When God says stop weeping, it is because he has made up his mind to remove that which is causing you sorrow. That day it was my turn to weep and I was weeping for joy.
There is somebody here tonight, the next time you weep, it will be weeping for joy.
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said before this year runs out, you will sing “All is well!”
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said your benefactors is going through a hard time, the Lord asked me to tell you, because you came here tonight, I will intervene.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight, he said from now your seed will fall on good soil
Daddy says there is someone here tonight, he said your talent has been hidden for too long, he said now I will bring it to the open.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said from this moment onward, the things you were looking for, will begin to look for you
Psalm 32v 10- 11 the Bible says the sorrow of those who runs after other god shall be many, but those who trust in the Lord shall be glad and rejoice.
If you are living in sin, if you are worshipping other gods, there is no way your sorrow can go, God says many will be the sorrows of the wicked. He said only those who put their trust in the Lord, will continue to be glad and will continue to rejoice.
There is no prophecy that can cancel the word of God. Forever oh Lord, your word is settled; the word of God says the sorrow of the wicked shall be multiplied. The sorrow of those who run after other god shall be multiplied.
The sorrows of those who refuse to surrender their live to Jesus Christ shall be multiplied. But those who trust in God shall be glad and they shall rejoice.
If you are here tonight and you have not yet given your life to Jesus , come and do so now, God wants to put an end to your sorrow, but he will not break his word, all his prophecy of tonight are for those who are Gods children and they can become your too if you surrender your life.
So I am going to count from one to ten, if you want to give your life to Jesus, before I say ten come and stand before me here. If you are backslider and you have gone back into sin and you want your joy to be restored, come back to the Almighty God, come now, one, two, three… as you come, begin to ask for mercy, ask him to save your soul. Talk to him now… the rest of us, lets pray for these people, let’s ask God to save their soul, that he should forgive them their sins.
Those of you who are coming, keep coming. I will wait a little for you to come…. Ask him for mercy; ask him to save your souls, ask him to save your soul… in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Savior, I just want to bless your name, thank you because your mercy endures forever, thank you for your word, thank you for this your children who have come today, accept our thanks in Jesus name.
Father you promise that who so ever will come to you, you will in no wise cast out, they have come now, receive them in Jesus name, forgive them in Jesus name, save their souls in Jesus name, let your blood wash away their sins in Jesus name, father please write their names in the book of life in Jesus name and from now on, wipe away all tears from their eyes, let them serve you till the end, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Now, I want to rejoice with those of you who have come forward tonight, because from now, till every day of my life, I will be praying for you and very soon, you will be receiving some miracles you didn’t even ask for. So I need your name, your address and your prayer request.
You may want to write down your prayer point because tonight, we really need to spend time with God,
You can pray in your own way, you can kneel; you can lie down, for the next one hour cry unto God.
LET SOMEBODY SHOUT ALLELUIA
