We are very grateful Lord, please, accept our worship in Jesus’ name, thank You my Father and my God, in Jesus’ mighty name we have prayed.
TEXT- REVELATION CHAPTER 5
11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT ORDINATION.
I want those of you who should have been ordained during this Convention to know that as soon as God opens the way, we will make arrangements for you to come and be ordained. In other words, you don’t have to wait till next year to be ordained, as soon as God opens the door, we will contact you and you will come and you will do your ordination. It will be a very special one because you will be the one we are focusing on. It might be a whole day affair instead of the normal three days. Probably we will start with the Deacons and Deaconesses, rest for a while, come for the Assistant Pastors, take a break and come back for the full Pastors, all of them in one day depending on how much grace God makes available to us.
THE WONDERS OF HEAVEN.
Heaven is a wonderful place:
1.There is no night there.
2.The throne of God is in heaven.
3.There is no dying in heaven.
4. God is going to wipe away tears from all eyes.
6.No power failure.
7.Heaven is a wonderful place.
8.The greater wonders of heaven is in the fact that praise goes on there non-stop.
THE GREATEST WONDERS OF HEAVEN IS PRAISE.
Because, the wonders of praise lie basically in the fact that of all things that the All-Sufficient God will look for is praise and worship John 4:23-24.
(i) Students seek wisdom.
(ii) Business men seek wealth/contracts.
(iii) Politicians seek power.
(iv) THE ALL-SUFFICIENT GOD SEEKS PRAISE AND WORSHIP.
According to Psalm 22:3, He practically dwells in the praise of His people.
In REVELATION 5:11-13, when the Bible talks about ten thousand times ten thousand that is one hundred billion angels.The mass choir in heaven is not even enough with hundred billions plus thousands times thousands. And not only that, everything that God ever created: in heaven, on earth and underneath the earth; animals, birds and fish in the ocean all are praising Him.
In spite of all these billions, He is still looking for more praise. When He looks from heaven and finds somebody praising Him on earth, He will shake the earth so that He can reach the fellow.
PAUL AND SILAS PRAISED GOD.
In Acts 16:25-26, Paul and Silas praised God at midnight in the prison.
They held a praise service in the prison, when He finds somebody praising Him, He will cause an earthquake.
In Isaiah 66:1, Heaven is His throne, the earth is His footstool.
When He hears somebody praising Him, He gets up from His throne and with those mighty legs, as He begins to come, the earth will begin to shake.
He will destroy every yoke the enemy might be using to keep people bound because when the anointed One arrives, yokes are bound to be destroyed.
When He arrives, He forces open the prison door because He has the keys of David. Revelation 3:7, when He opens, no man can shut.
If you can learn to praise Him, doors will be opened unto you.
I have heard Him say if you knock at one door, three will be opened.
Acts 16:33-34 .
Do you want your enemies to become your servants?
When you learn to praise God, He will humiliate your archenemy.
In 1 Samuel 24:1-22. David spares Saul’s life and he was humiliated.
Begin to praise Him the way He should be praised, it won’t be long your enemy will be humiliated.
Paul and Silas fulfilled the purpose of their lives in the prison; they won the soul of the jailer and his entire family.
When you begin to praise God the way you should, He will break any law to reach out to you.
As You begin to praise God today, the Almighty God Himself will touch you.
If you worship Him, He can bring your future to your present.
In Matthew 15:21-28, the woman praised God and her future was brought into her present.
If you know how to worship God, He can bring ten years to now because He controls the beginning and the ending.
I’m praying for every one of you who will vigorously praise God today, all the blessings that are in the future, God will bring them to you now and put the fresh one in the future.
WHENEVER PRAYER FAILS, TRY PRAISE.
Have you been praying for something for years and you have not received an answer, suspend prayer and go into praise. It will amaze you that what prayers of three years can not do, praise of three hours will do it and more.
I want you to worship God today like never before.
Begin to praise Him, that is the greatest wonder of heaven.
Praise Him, even all the prayers you might have prayed during this Convention that you think have not been answered could be answered today.
PRAISE GOD TODAY.
I will bless you now, you can go ahead and praise Him for as long as you like.
SURRENDER TO JESUS.
In case there is anyone who has not given his/her life to Jesus Christ since the beginning of this Convention, I hope you better do so now because it is only the praise of His children that will be accepted.
My Father and my God, the Ancient of Days; i’m thanking You once again for this unique Convention, and it is in Your name that i’m pronouncing blessings on these Your children, they will be praising You soon like they have never done before, so i decree in Your name that every one of you listening to me during this particular Convention, it shall be well with you.
Every miracle that you have been crying to God for, you will get it today.
Every door that has been shut against you will be opened today.
Wherever you go, you will find favour with God and men.
My Father Himself will lift you high.
In every area of your life, it shall be well with you.
In Jesus’ mighty name we have prayed.
Praise the Lord.
