TEXT- DEUTERONOMY CHAPTER 28:1, 2 & 7
1And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.
7 The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
LIFE IS WAR.
Life is war from birth till death; some began their war before they were born, it took a miracle for them not to be aborted, it is a miracle that many if us were not stillbirth. The moment a baby is born he will begin to cry because the baby knows the war is on, the bible says the last enemy to be conquered is death. 1 Corinthians 15:26
SICKNESS IS WAR.
The bible called sickness affliction, James 5:13. The doctor will tell you that God knows in advance that there might be an occasion for your body to fight, He built warriors into your blood called leucocyte, the warriors in the body will fight if anything goes wrong in the body, the temperature will rise in the process of fighting. When there is a cut the blood will rush to the spot to prevent infiltrators from coming in, the blood will provide a shield (blood clot) to prevent invaders from coming in, it is when the soldiers inside can no longer cope that we say the fellow broke down.
BUSINESS IS WAR.
Business is war; there is serious competition in business all the time. Proverbs 22:7 says the rich rules over the poor; you will be amazed how many rich people that don’t want the poor to become rich and those who want you to remain poor. One fellow once said, if everybody becomes rich, who is going to be househelp? I asked him, if he would want his child to be househelp? He could not answer my question.
+I decree this morning, God will surprise those who want you to die poor.
When you consider those who are constantly speaking against God’s way of making you rich, you will observe that all of them are rich, they have made it but want you to stay down, but this morning God will give you victory.
Life is war, when you go to war, there is a possibility to win or lose. If you are fighting against God, then you know that you have lost before you begin. Exodus 14:1- Pharaoh warred against Israel and the bible says God fought for Israel and against Egypt and Egypt lost the battle.
GOD CAN BE NEUTRAL.
God is not fighting against you but He is neutral, if He is neutral, you will lose.
In Judges 16:18-21, God did not fight against Samson; He merely left Him alone and the result was that the enemies finished him. I have told you before, my father used to tell me when he was alive, he said when the lion wakes up in the morning, he prays a prayer, God, show me the animal i will eat today and then leave the two of us alone, don’t help me and the animal, the lions knows that if God should leave the animal alone, it is a finished food. If the devil is ever to pray, thank God he won’t pray, he would say; God show me the fellow i will destroy today, and leave the two of us alone.
+I pray for every one of you here, God will never leave you alone.
3.GOD FIGHTING FOR YOU.
When God is fighting for you, victory is certain. If God is on your side, if He is the One fighting battle for you, then you will get victory without a fight. Deuteronomy 28:7 – the enemies that come against you will be smitten before your face. You won’t smite them, you will see them coming and see them falling. He said they will come against you in one way and flee seven ways, that is victory without a fight.
+From now on, we will have victory without a fight.
GOD CAN GIVE YOU HEALING WITHOUT MEDICINE
When the forces (soldiers) in you can no longer cope, the doctors will begin to give you medicine, the medicine is to aid the soldier inside to fight the invaders, but the Almighty God can heal you without medicine. In 2 Kings 5:1-14, God told Naaman to obey and wash seven times and the leprosy will be gone, he obeyed God completely like Deuteronomy 28:1 said, when he came out the seventh time, the bible says, there was not a scar left, God can heal you without medicine.
In John 5:2-9, at the pool of Bethesda, a man has been sick for 38 years, all that God did is that He spoke a word -”Get up, take your bed and go” and instantly he was healed.
In Matthew 8:5-13, the bible tells us that when Jesus was going to the house of the Centurion to heal the servant, the Centurion said, you don’t have to come, just speak a word and my servant shall be made whole, God spoke a word and the servant was made whole. I’m here representing the Almighty God today, and I’m speaking a word to somebody here:
+You won’t know sickness again.
A girl was brought from Akure sometimes ago that had big lump in her breast and the doctor called the lump cancer and the only solution is to cut the breast, she insisted she must come for prayers and the Almighty God says just said to her that her faith has made her whole, she went down from my office, before getting into the car that brought her, she checked and the lump has disappeared, she came back to me excited and said it has gone and asked a funny question, where has it gone to? And I asked where did it come from?
+Your faith will make you whole today.
+Everything the enemies had introduced into your body will go back to sender this morning in Jesus’ name.
GOD CAN GIVE YOU PROSPERITY WITHOUT A STRUGGLE.
God can give you prosperity without a struggle; He can set you up for financial breakthrough, in 1 Kings 17:8-16, the Almighty God told us of a widow who had only one meal left and God sent His servant to her, and he told the woman, i know that you have only one meal left, put God first, do mine first, she did and was never hungry again, while others were groaning in famine, she was getting fatter and the face of the child was shining because God set her up, when Jesus was referring to the story, He said there were many widows in the land, and God chose one and gave her victory over poverty.
+God will set somebody up for victory today.
In 2 Chronicles 1:5-6, Solomon offered a thousand burnt offerings and God paid him a visit, by the time God finished with him, gold and silver became as ordinary stones. I asked God what gave Solomon the urge to offer the burnt offerings, the Almighty God showed me in 2 Samuel 12:24-25, from the day Solomon was born, God loved him and set him up to do what no one has done so that he can become richer than anybody who had ever been born.
Something happened to me years ago as a worker in the church, Papa said the church had a great need that must be met the following week and told the workers to close their accounts and bring the money to church, my wife and i obeyed, we closed our savings accounts and took the money to church. The following Sunday, Papa said the need has been met and asked if we closed our accounts, i raised my hands and my wife raised her hand, i looked round and there was nobody else, so i bagan to say that it look as if i had received madness with this religion and God spoke to me, son, you are not mad, i’m setting you up so that when i take you to where i’m going to take you, nobody will be able to query me.
+There is somebody here today, God will set you up for a breakthrough.
GOD CAN GIVE YOU DELIVERANCE WITHOUT A STRUGGLE.
In Mark 1:23-27, Jesus came into the temple and there was a man there with an unclean spirit, the demon departed with just a word, there was no struggle; no deliverance, the man with an unclean spirit did not even fast, pray or come to Jesus to tell Him that he is in bondage and ask for freedom, God volunteered freedom for him, he got victory without a fight, the man has been coming to church, but a day came, when he was set free without a struggle.
In Acts 12:5-11, the bible tells us that Peter was in the prison and he was going to be killed the following morning, he was tied to two soldiers, the doors of the prison were firmly shut, there were guards outside the door, the enemies were sure there is no way he could escape, but Peter was sleeping, he was not praying or sweating; he was in a very deep sleep, then the Lord of hosts came in, waked Peter, the chains fell off, the soldiers were fast asleep, Peter thought he was dreaming because the doors opened on their own accord.
+Your day will come today.
+I will love to prophesy to somebody today, those who are tying you down will fall asleep.
+Every chain binding your hands and feet shall drop off today.
+On your way out here, every door that has been shut against you shall open on their own accord.
We were having Holy Ghost congress in Osogbo and at a stage we were having bible study and i was going round supervising and i saw some people gathered around a young boy; he had a big problem since the day he was born, he had urge to go into fire, the parents discovered this very early and kept him far away from the kitchen, so that day, he told the brethren that he want to cast the demon out, they surrounded him, rolled their sleeves; they were ready for battle, then they saw me coming and told me to join them in casting out demon out of the boy, i agreed if they will allow me to pray first, i prayed a simple prayer and commanded the demon to leave and i began to go and they said is that all, the program ended and i was passing through Ife and decided to visit one of my boys, lo and behold, the young boy that we prayed for was in the house and prepared food for me because the word has already gone out.
+The word is going out today to everyone of you in bondage, in the name that is above every other name, be free.
GOD CAN GIVE YOU MARRIAGE WITHOUT A STRUGGLE.
Genesis 24:1-67, Isaac was enyong himself; doing his father’s business but he did not know that the father had made a plan and sent somebody to get a wife for him, the bible says, Isaac went for a stroll, and saw some people coming, among them was a beautiful woman and the beautiful lady said “who is that man there?” They said that is your husband, she came down from the horse and the next thing you know was that Issac got married, no struggle at all.
+You have come for a stroll this morning and your future partner will surface very soon.
GOD CAN GIVE YOU FRUIT OF THE WOMB WITHOUT A STRUGGLE.
In 2Kings 4:8-17, the bible tells us of the great woman of Shunem, she wasn’t expecting fruit of the womb anymore, when the man of God said she will have a baby in nine months time, she told the man of God not to deceive her, but nine months later she was carrying a baby boy.
+I have good news for those of you trusting God for the fruit of the womb, because you are here this morning, by the end of this year, you will be carrying your children.
We held a program here several years ago, we were about to finish and i said everybody should ask for something special, there was a lady who said to God that she will serve God and not ask for anything because when she can have a child she asked for a husband, one didn’t show up, now i can’t have a child, i don’t bother You anymore, few days later, a man came and said, sister, thus saith the Lord, you are my wife, she told him to pray again because she has passed the age of child bearing, the man praised the Lord that she must be the one, because he already had children and his wife died, he is not looking for children but somebody that will take care of his children, they got married, the woman conceived the first month after their marriage and delivered a set of twins; two boys.
+God will put laughter in the mouth of somebody.
+In the name that is above every other name, those of you who are single, this year, the wedding bell shall ring for you.
+Those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, in the name of the One who says be fruitful and multiply, this year, at least a set of twins for you.
GOD CAN PROMOTE YOU WITHOUT A STRUGGLE.
Joshua 1:1-8, Joshua was a servant of Moses; he was just a househelp, then Moses died and God called Joshua to take over, he trembled but God said he will do the job and told him to be strong and be of good courage three times.
1 Samuel 16:11-13, If anybody thought of becoming a king, it is not David, even his father could not present him. David woke up a shepherd boy and went to bed a king.
+ There are some of you here today not expecting any promotion, in the name of the One who promotes, your promotion will be accelerated.
One of my relations was a cashier years ago in a bank, his boss sent him to Apapa with 10 Shilling, he could not get a taxi and took a bus and spent 3 Pence, he gave the chairman the remaining change and everybody in the office laughed at him, after some months, the boss decided to open a branch of the bank in Ilorin and remembered the cashier that returned change on transport; he woke up a cashier and went to bed as a branch manager of a bank.
+In the name that is above every other name, there is somebody here, even before the end of this month, we will hear your testimony.
GOD CAN GIVE YOU COMPLETE VICTORY WITHOUT A FIGHT.
2 Chronicles 20:20-25, three mighty kings came against Jehoshaphat, he went before God and God told him to sing praises, God took care of the situation and the enemy destroyed themselves and their wealth was converted to Jehoshaphat.
2 Kings 19:1-37, Sennacherib came against the king of Israel and told the king that he had already finished kings of other nations; the kings he finished have gods that can be seen, but the king of Israel has a God that nobody can see, the Almighty God sent just one angel, fighting for just one night and the angel finished 185 000 soldiers.
When we decided to move to the Redemption Camp to hold the first convention; we went by faith and did everything by faith and we had a beautiful convention, shortly after the convention, they brought a woman who was confessing because she was under agony and told me to listen to her before i pray for her, she said they heard that we are coming to the camp and decided to come ahead and take over the land, three major witches came ahead and the angel of the Lord arrested them, out of the three; one died immediately, one developed a hunchback and the third one was confessed, we don’t know there were witches, but there is a God called the Lord of hosts, He sent an angel ahead of us, arrested the enemies and finished them.
+In the name that is above every other name, Daddy will take care of known and unknown enemies today.
The bible says, if God be for us, who can be against us?
*If God is for you, the devil can’t be against you, He said, you resist the devil and the devil will flee.
*If God is for you, demons can’t be against you, He said you are to cast them out.
*If God is for you, sickness can’t be against you, He sent His word and healed them.
*If God is for you, poverty can’t be against you, He said my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory.
*If God is for you, failure can’t be against you, because the bible says, i can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
WHO CAN BE AGAINST YOU? Not herbalists, witches or wizards, because it is written, no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper.
WHO CAN BE AGAINST YOU? ONLY YOURSELF.
*if God says i want to help you and you say you don’t need help, he won’t force you.
*If God says let us be friends and you say no you want to be His enemy, He will leave you alone.
*If He says come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and i will give you rest and you say i don’t want to come, He won’t force you.
*If He wants to give you victory without a fight and you say you don’t need Him, He will leave you alone and see how you can do it on your own.
PRAYER FOR SALVATION.
I’m begging you this morning, if you have not surrendered your life to Jesus Christ, come and do so now, because if He invites you and you refuse His invitation, He will leave you alone and the enemy will finish the rest. If you surrender to Him, He will give you victory without a fight.
Cry unto the Almighty God: Ask Him to please save your soul, tell Him you will surrender completely to Him, so that He can become your Ally, ask Him to forgive all your sins and receive you into the family of God, ask Him to give you a brand new beginning, tell Him you will do His will; go ahead, talk to the Almighty God.
