TOPIC: MY FATHER, RECREATE ME
TEXT: Matthew 4:19
MINISTERING: Dr. Daniel Olukoya(G.O MFM Worldwide)
🔥 My Father, recreate me by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
That prayer point is our topic. Please listen carefully to this message. It is a very deep message which I want to try and make easy, for you to understand.
In Matthew 4, Peter was already a fully blooded man. Peter was already married. Possibly he had children. He was an expert fisherman. He was not a small boy, neither was he still in his mother’s womb. He was already grown up. But in verse 19, Jesus said something to him.
Peter had already been travelling in his journey of life before he met Jesus. But it now got to a stage here which is critical. Peter was already made. He was not a fisher of men. He was a fisher of fish. Then at his old age now, somebody grabbed him and said “although a fisher of fish, I will now make you a fisher of men”.
Listen to me very very carefully. There is a reinventing power. There is a recreating power. God is the creator. There is no one created that by God that He does not know how to panel beat or deal with. In our journey of life, God ordains contracts and persons to bring us to our place of purpose. God ordains situations, circumstances, connections, destiny helpers to move us to where He might work in us and through us.
God receives us as we are but if we allow Him, He does not leave us as we are. When you come to Jesus, He will take you as you are. You say “Father, I am a prostitute and I am coming to you”. He says “whosoever will, may come”. You say “Father I am a drunkard, I come to you”. He says “whosoever will, may come.” You say “Father, I am a liar, I come to you”. He says “whosoever will, may come”.
But if you allow Him, He does not leave you as you are. He begins to work in your life, changing that life for you. No man is beyond divine recreation as long as you yield yourself. “I will make you fishers of men. You were a fisher of fish. True. You are an old man but I will make you a fisher of men. Follow me and I will make you a fisher of men.”
So who you follow determines what follows you. If you follow confusion, confusion follows you. If you follow excellence, excellence follows you. “Follow me” He says, “and I will make you…” So it is when you follow Him that He will make you what He wants you to become. If you do not follow Him and you do not listen to instructions, you will be in trouble. Serious trouble! You are made by whom you follow. If you follow the devil, he will confuse you. If you follow the Lord, He will remake you.
🔥 I prohesy upon you, you will follow Jesus! You will follow Jesus! You will follow Jesus, in the name of Jesus!
The Bible says for the first time in the life of Saul the king of Israel, he began to prophesy. Why? Because he found himself in the company of prophets. He followed the prophets and because he was following the prophets, he too began to prophesy until people said “is Saul also among the prophets? Is he there?” If you follow fools, you die as a fool.
God takes us as we are, but if you allow Him and you yield yourself, and you say “all to Jesus I surrender”, He will now take you and begin to remake you. Where the world has put poison for you, He throws out the poison. Where they planted arrows, He throws out the arrows. Where they put iron and the iron is not supposed to be there, He removes it. Where they have turned the head upside down, He turns it the right way. But the process and the duration of the remaking of each person differs from person to person.
In remaking Joseph, God had to take him away from his family. He took him away from his Loving Father who was spoiling him by sewing clothes different from that of the others. He had to be withdrawn from that place. He was a spoilt little boy with a loose mouth. He was thrown into prison in a foreign land. In all this, God was remaking him to be the person who would eventually become the prime minister.
God looked at Moses. Moses had so much self confidence. He had studied in the university of Egypt. He was an expert in all the arts of Egypt. Infact, those magicians who came to confront Moses were his colleagues before. God looked at the man and said “if this one is not remade, he will not make any difference. His destiny will sink.” So Moses was sent into the university of the wilderness in the Midian desert. There, he was remade.
God took him to become a shepherd because later on, he would be leading millions of people in the wilderness like a shepherd. He needed to be purged of the palace spirit inside of him, he needed to have the shepherd spirit. Moses had to be purged, drained of that spirit and humbled to the position of a shepherd in order to be remade. It took war and aggression to make David into the great leader he eventually became.
Recently, I have been studying 1 Samuel, 2nd Samuel, 1 Kings and 2 Kings. The wars that David fought, I do not think that any General, whether dead or alive has ever fought them.
Those wars made him what he eventually became. Elisha was the son of a rich man but he had to be remade so that he could be positioned in order to receive the double portion. He became somebody who was pouring water on the hands of Elijah until he was positioned to received the double portion.
He had met Elijah ten years before he received the double portion. Many of us are in a hurry and those who are in a hurry never know the secret of God. Always in too much hurry. “Time is going, I want this, I want that”. God says “But relax, let me remake you to become what I want you to become”. You say “no, I cannot wait, it is taking too long”. But ten years that Elisha had been following Elijah before the double portion came. For Joseph, it took ten years since leaving his father to become what he eventually became. Moses took forty years. It took David 15 years, from the moment he was declared the king of Israel before he could become the king. God needed time to remake him.
We beloveth are as clay in the hands of a potter. Some allow the potter to finish them in one year. Others, due to stubbornness, take ten years. It is possible for you as you are sitting and listening to me tonight to be the one frustrating the divine calendar for your own life. Because the level God expected you to have left 5 years ago, you are still there. The thing God expected you to have understood many years ago and even be a teacher to others, you have not left that class.
So because you remain in that class and you are not leaving the place, you do not go forward, you do not go backward, then those coming behind you will go ahead of you and those who were on the same level with you have gone ahead of you again. You are frustrating the divine calendar. Stubbornness delays the remaking of the Almighty.
At Calvary, two thieves hung on the cross, one on either side of Jesus. They received an invitation from Jesus to ride into paradise with Him. One thief wasted his only chance and mocked his way into hell. The other thief grabbed the chance and got to paradise.
Tonight, there is an invitation to the potter’s house. No matter how marred the world would have marred you, nobody how terrible the environment you are in has coloured your life, no matter whether they got your mother pregnant under a trailer or they got her pregnant inside a ‘buka’ but you are here now, He can make you again into another vessel. He will take you and make you again into another vessel. He will take you as you are but He will not leave you as you are.
But there is one serious point which is a matter for the serious prayers of tonight. God will not continue to be at work on a person’s life forever. God might not be waiting for you for much longer. You may have 5 month, 2 months, one week, one year or five years left.
One day the final bell of the Almighty shall ring. For that reason, prophet Isaiah pleaded. He said ‘seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near’ meaning that a time will come when He will not be found anymore.
A time is coming when He may not be near. That time you go to look for preachers, the preachers are gone. The implication of this is that, God will not always be near, He will not always be found. Jesus warned. He said “I must work the works of Him that sent me while it is day, the night cometh when no man can work’. Do not be like the five foolish virgins. Guests have arrived, the feast is on, but the doors are shut and you find yourself outside.
You need to cry to heavens loud and clear. “O Lord, recreate me!” You need to yield. Instead of yielding your body to temptation, yield that body to God.
*To yield means to:*
– cooperate with the Master,
– to endure hardships,
– pray sacrificially,
– study your Bible sacrificially,
– obey without reservation,
– remain unpolluted in this polluted world,
– fight the good fight of faith,
– be broken,
– say no to the suggestion of the enemy.
– is next to the shortest word in English language.
– is a concentrated declaration of your will.
– is the backbone of your character. Something says ‘do this wrong thing’ but you say ‘No.’
– is the indicator of how solid you are.
– is the barometer of how strong you are.
– is that thing that measures your inner moral force.
– is that aggressive dog that is guarding your treasure.
– is that high fence that protects you from losing your destiny.
That word ‘No’ has delivered so many women from instant death that they think is love. ‘No’ that somebody has said although gently, is as hard as steel and has delivered so many people from bondage. That is what it means to yield.
1. (Pray this 2 hot times) My Father, recreate me, in the name of Jesus.
2. Powers protecting my battles from dying, you are liars, die, in the name of Jesus.
3. By the power in the blood of Jesus, the rag in my foundation will not capture me, in the name of Jesus.
4. Powers trading with my virtues, before I leave this place, die, in the name of Jesus.
5. Expected and unexpected testimonies, manifest in my life, in the name of Jesus.
6. Powers fasting to terminate my life, Lion of the tribe of Judah, waste them, in the name of Jesus.
7. Glory of God that will make me forget my problems, fall upon me now, in the name of Jesus.
8. Battle distributors, I am not your candidate, die, in the name of Jesus.
9. O heavens arise, swallow any power that does not want to let me go, in the name of Jesus.
10. Witchcraft powers gathered to fight me, destroy yourselves, in the name of Jesus.
God bless you 🙏

Topic : THE SPIRITS OF MENTAL HARASSMENT
Text: Philippians 4:4-8
Ministering: Dr. Daniel, Kolawole Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)
You will do well to pay attention to this. Philippians 4 gives us a recipe for not running mad in this generation. It gives you an antidote to insanity, in the insane world in which we find ourselves. And the Bible did not leave us in darkness.
It says “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come”. The word “perilous times” in ancient Greek means mad, difficult to explain. So the world is a madhouse. This passage tells you what to do so that the spirits that harass the soul, the spirits of mental harassment that lead people to the brink of despair do not capture a believer.
Unless you bury your head into the word of God, there are plenty of things around to make people run mad. Plenty of things around to make people to lose their minds. Plenty of things that will make a man to talk and you think he is normal, but underneath he is a mad man in three piece suit.
When you see a woman who will dye her front hair grey, dye the middle red and the back to black, it shows that she is already mad, that there is something wrong somewhere. Phil 4:4 is the first key to not running mad. It says “Rejoice alway, and again I say rejoice.”
It did not talk about circumstances because the man who was writing this was inside the Philippian jail that time. This was written by a man who was in jail, yet in that jail he could say that the key is “rejoice in the Lord, rejoice alway.” The joy of the Lord is permanent, the happiness of the world is temporary.
In verse 5, key number 2 not to run mad is, get the presence of the Lord around you, know that the Lord is around you. Wherever you are, He is there with you. He is not just a faraway old man sitting somewhere, the Lord is at hand (He is there.) “When thou passest through the fire, when thou passest through the waters, I will be with you….” means He is there.
Key number 3 in verse 6 means in your life let worry die. Worry will not get you anything. Worry will not get you anywhere. It is like a rocking chair you are sitting on that is moving but is not making progress. By the time you finish allowing the spirits of worry and anxiety to harass your mind, you find out that you have wasted time.
That is why the Bible says “whatever you commit into the hands of God, He can keep it “. So keep your life in His hands. Verse 6 says ‘be careful for nothing…’ Another version says “do not let anything worry your mind”. Key number 4 still in that verse 6 is, by prayer and thanksgiving and supplication, let your request be made known unto God. Verse 7.
In verse 8, it now says “finally”. Meaning, in conclusion. It is like when somebody has been talking and then says ‘now, to conclude’, it means he wants to now summarise everything. So in verse 8, the final key is to take charge of your heart. Take charge of your thinking. Do not allow your thoughts to be harassed by spirits that harass people’s hearts.
*I pray that the Lord will touch somebody here this morning and that arrow of frustration, arrows enticing you to give up, arrows that want to cage you where they caged your parents, will die here, in the name of Jesus*
There are spirits that harass people mentally but the agenda of that spirit is to finally imprison the soul, and imprison the person’s heart. A prison is a terrible thing. It removes or limits your freedom. It is a place of confinement. But as we have physical prisons, there are spiritual prisons as well. The greatest battle ground is not at the witchcraft coven, it is not in the camp of household wickedness, it is not in your office or the place of work.
The greatest battle ground is the heart. Most battle grounds have 2 enemies. They have 2 contestants. But the heart has 3 contestants. God is interested in the heart, the devil is interested in the heart, and man is interested in that heart. Man sometimes does not wish to do as much evil as the devil suggests. That is why the psalmist says “let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O God”. Meaning that those unacceptable thoughts put man into trouble and untold hardships.
The heart is where all our trouble begins. The heart is also the place where God begins to work. We are here this morning, dressed beautifully, we thank God for that. But if some hearts can be opened, many of us will run away. The scripture takes it very seriously. The first time God decided to destroy people, it was because the imagination of their heart was continually evil everyday.
In Genesis 6:5 God repented that he made man because He saw that the wickedness of man was great and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. That was why he destroyed them
There was only one accusation to the generation of Noah before water destroyed all of them. It was a problem of the heart. Very soon the men began to build the tower of Babel and God came again and said “these people have started again o. Everything they are imagining in their hearts, they will do it now oh.”
This is where the scripture says “above all things, guard your heart with all diligence”. Therefore beloveth, the strongest prison is the prison of the mind. The prison of the heart. That is why the Bible says “though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”.
If you are not able to bring your thoughts under subjection and those thoughts are running helter-skelter, today you are crying, tomorrow you are murmuring, next day you are melancholic, another day you are grumbling, this constant harassment is called mental torment and the result is normally very bad.
When you are under the attack of these mental spirits:
– When you are thinking of killing yourself, you are under attack by these mental spirits.
– You are thinking of killing other people, something is wrong somewhere, your mental life is under attack.
– You are the kind of person who is doing something and before you are even done, you begin to say “supposing this thing does not work?” Mental attack.
– When you begin to imagine yourself with grey hair, no wife, no husband, arrows are fired into your heart.
– When sexual thoughts fill your mind day and night, thoughts of retrenchment, thoughts of business attack, thoughts of uncertainty, failure, fear, hindrance, confusion, wickedness, deceit.
– You are pregnant and already considering a thought of miscarriage.
– You are sick and already imagining yourself on the operating theatre. This is a very serious thing that is affecting many lives.
– Any small pain that some women feel in their breasts now, the first thought is that it is cancer. When she forgot to put her pillow on her head and slept on her breast and the breast is now paining her, her first thought is that it is cancer. And if they find anything in the breast, they already declare it to be cancer, forgetting that anything can grow in the breast, it does not have to be cancer.
I have seen people calling me saying “G.O I cannot feel any strength in my hand and my legs, heei, stroke ooo” whereas there is no problem. Unless you get out of the prison yard which mental harassment spirits have put you in, by renewing your mind daily, you might be in trouble. You will be digging your spiritual grave if you do not launch spiritual warfare against these spirits attacking your soul.
Listen very carefully. You see, the mechanism is this:
1. God’s thought towards you is of good and not of evil towards you. That is the standard of heaven;
2. God is the only creator. The devil has no power to create anything. So, here you are: God says “my thought towards you is good”, and the devil cannot create anything. But you are now the one appropriating evil things to yourself to which the devil will now apply stamp which he has power to do.
So your thought is the energy which attracts things to you. It is the law of attraction that brings things to you. Many people who die in accidents or in emergency situations in hospitals die, not because of their sicknesses or accidents but because they see death around. For example, there are 36 beds in a ward. All of a sudden in the morning, you hear the relatives of the first bed crying. Then somebody is crying behind. Then he asks, “what killed that person?” And the reply is “it is pile”. Then he begins to panic and that is all. He is gone.
You see, the power of our thoughts have energy to create either evil or good for us. The Bible is a perfect book. It says “for as man thinketh in his heart, so is he”. You say “I know why the men are not coming, I am ugly”. Who told you that you are ugly? “It is because I am fat”. Who told you that you are fat? It is a thing of the heart. There are some men who are looking for those fat women. You call yourself ugly but that thing you call ugly is what someone else is looking for.
Therefore beloveth, the source of all power and weakness is within. The reason for success as well as failure is from inside. It is wrong to look for power and strength outside. The source of wealth, health, power, success, prosperity is within. All growth is enfoldment from within. Then the source of sickness, poverty, lawlessness, sorrow, grave, laziness, immorality is from within.
Therefore the key to convert trials to triumph, foes to friends, fear to courage, despair to joy, temptation to testimony is within. The most powerful forces are those invisible forces from within. The enemy understands this and so he has created a department called “Mental harassment department” with different kinds of spirits to harass the minds of men. That is the warfare we need to wage here today.
There is a spirit of:
– Inferiority complex.
– Saying “I am not meeting expectations”
– The victim mentality (it is always me).
– Emotional imbalance
– Mental instability
– Living in the past
– The ‘why me’ syndrome. All these are mentally harassing spirits.
– Enticement (it is strongly prompting you to do things that are wrong)
– Numbness : without feeling at all
– Memory failure: the enemy just removes the memory.
I want you to understand that these are horrible spirits troubling men. Perhaps you are here this morning, somewhere back in your life, you have given your life over to the enemy so that they can do whatever they want, I want you to understand that the whole creation is the product of thought. The idea of fashioning the earth was conceived in the mind of God and planned out in His imagination.
Your thoughts have the power of creating for you the things you think. The power of thoughts are released from within you to create your desire. Your thoughts are the forces you send out to work on your behalf. Your thoughts have the power to bring towards you their realities. If you make up your mind here this morning that you will be sending out the thoughts of victory and success, that is what you will get. If you continue to think failure, you will get failure.
Imagination that has put many people down is what some people are doing day and night. We have work to do. All those thoughts that are in your heart that are not of God, show that there is a problem.
Some practical things you can do are:
– list all the thoughts and imagination that give you the greatest anxiety.
– then take them one by one, smash and demolish them with prayers of fire. If any of them tries to persist,
– plead the blood of Jesus on your heart.
– Take up one or two or more verses, tie up the thought and smash it again with prayers.
– command the arrows of evil thoughts to go and
– begin to soak yourself in the word of God. That way, you will be able to defeat all this rage of mentally harassing spirits.
Many of us are in the wrong place now because of what our hearts have programmed us to become. This morning, you and I need to pray very serious prayers. The hottest battle ground is the heart. God needs it, devil is looking for it, man wants to control it. So once that battle of the heart is lost, you lose all battles.
1. Any spell placed upon my life, scatter in the name of Jesus; &
2. Angels ordained for my blessings, appear in the name of Jesus.
1. Stronghold in my heart, die in the name of Jesus;
2. Heaviness in my heart, carry your load in the name of Jesus;
3. Every enemy of my peace of mind, you are a liar, die in the name of Jesus;
4. Poison of darkness in my body, die in the name of Jesus;
5. Every power that wants me to die before my testimonies, you are a liar, die in the name of Jesus;
6. Strongman that does not want to let me go, die in the name of Jesus; &
7. (Put forward your two hands) Every blessing these hands have lost, my hands arise, possess your possession in the name of Jesus.

Topic: THE AWESOME POWER OF MIDNIGHT PRAYERS
Text: Psalm 119:62, Luke 6:12, Acts 16:22-28
Ministering: Dr. Daniel Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)
Now listen to me very carefully as I share an important key with you. The word “midnight” occurs 14 times in scriptures. Each time it occurred, something strange or big was attached to it.
David was the first person in the Bible who started getting up at midnight to pray. You see, spiritual things are operated with keys. It is not so much as just working hard; there are keys. You will see the testimonies that will come out of this message because it is a key that many people do not know about or hardly use.
The second point you must understand is that God did everything important at midnight. Practically everything important that the Almighty did was at midnight. Every time that the apostles were locked up in prison, it took night prayers to break open their prison houses.
That is why if sleep is still caging you, you need serious prayers. Night prayers are extremely effective.
===> I see somebody here today, by the time you start your night warfare, everything you have lost for years, you shall mysteriously recover them in the name of Jesus.
Bottom line: night warfares are effective because no one likes to be awake at night. People prefer to sleep. After working during the day, the tendency is that people normally like to rest at night. That is why all the workers of evil pick the night hour.
If you too must defeat your enemies who operate in covens at night, you must learn how to wake up at night and pray through. From 1974, I trained myself to sleep for 4 hours. Once 4 hours are up, my eyes will pop open. And my 4 hours is better than the 10 hours some people sleep.
This is a very serious matter if you must survive in the midst of the war that we face. Jesus Himself laid examples for us. If there was somebody who did not need to pray, it is Jesus. But here you find, “And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.”
If Jesus had to pray, how about you? How about me? In this Luke 6:12, after Jesus finished this vigil, in verse 13, He preached the most powerful sermon ever delivered on earth. That same Luke 6, the Bible calls “sermon on the mount”. All that sermon was preached after the vigil.
It took an all night prayer to produce such result. Beloveth whether we like it or not, we have a marching order if we must prevail. If you are still here today and by 12 midnight you are watching Nollywood, you are on the Internet, and you want power, you are wasting time.
Our marching order is in Lamentations 2:19. Those who have made television your lord and master, you better change quickly. The enemies of our souls do not watch television. They do not go on sabbatical. They do not take study leaves. They do not go on vacation.
Lamentations 2:19 asks us to arise in the midnight. Beloveth, midnight prayer is the surest arena for breaking satanic bondages and limitations.
The midnight is:
– the time for spiritual baton change.
– the time of dark meeting initiation
– the time when all the evil that have worked in the day are handing over to the workers of the night
– the time when evil changes shifts
– a covenant time for coven gathering.
===> I pray for somebody here, may any coven gathering against you at midnight be scattered. The ones that will gather tonight shall be scattered. The ones that will gather after tonight shall be scattered in the name of Jesus.
– the time they write handing over note. “This is how far we have destroyed so-so and so person in the day. You are the night workers, take over from where we left”. Therefore, midnight prayer is essential.
There is no evil power that can resist the power of persistent and prolonged midnight prayers. Even if it is just for ten minutes. It does not have to be long. If you say 12 midnight you start and by 12:15 you are through, it is okay. As far as it is consistent. 12-12:30 is also okay as far as it is consistent.
Maybe you have slept at nine o’clock. You leave your alarm on and by twelve midnight it rings. You get up and pray ten minutes of aggressive prayers, it is okay as far as it is consistent. There are levels you cannot achieve in the spiritual realm until you get involved in midnight prayers.
The truth which I must tell you is that there is no man who gets any serious power from God except after midnight. That is why one man of God wrote a book many years ago and called it “born after midnight” and the meat of that book is that all the good things God does for people, the visitation, the power, all come after midnight.
There are levels of revelations that you can never attain without prolonged midnight prayers. There are some satanic entities, thrones, kingdoms, chains, fetters that you can never dismantle without midnight prayer. Jesus said “will the Lord not speedily answer His saints who cry unto Him day and night?”
There are some prayers that cannot be prayed in the day. There are day prayers, there are night prayers. So night time is the best battle time. It is that time when there is high level of witchcraft activities, high level of demonic activities. The night time is when they begin to cause pain, sorrow, affliction, torment, bruising people, harassing people, manipulating people; it is all in the night.
No wonder Jesus also said “while men slept, his enemies came”. The strategy is this: as they are meeting to determine your own fate, you can go on midnight riot and determine their own fate. That is the thing. You can use your weapon of prayer to scatter their meeting and render them helpless and powerless.
Is there anyone here and you are ready to penetrate into the kingdom of darkness and pull down the walls of principalities and powers? You need midnight prayers. Is there anybody here and you want to overcome the battle before the battle even begins? You need the midnight prayers.
Is there anybody here and you are fed up with your present state? You need the midnight prayers. Is there anybody here who wants to obtain all the resources of heaven? You need the midnight prayers. Just one angel at night killed 185,000 soldiers of Sennacherib, meaning that you can destroy all your enemies in one night.
Night time is a time of victory. It is a time to tame the wild lion and the beast. What those enemies are doing in their covens, you can do do much more at the throne of grace at midnight. Midnight prayers attract angelic presence. It will tame all the wild lions assigned against you. This is a serious matter and this is why I am bringing this to your attention.
In that passage in Acts 16:22-28, the magistrates tore their clothes (Paul and Silas) and asked them to be beaten. They were beaten so many stripes that it was hard to count. The Jews only give about 39 strokes of cane but this one was so many that they could not count again.
Why did those men decide to keep quiet? They were just watching them. 8pm, they did not take any action. 9pm, no action taken. 11pm, no action taken. 11:30, no action taken. But at twelve midnight, they started. So, those men understood warfare. They knew what they wanted to do and they were not quiet about it.
When the earthquake happened, everyone’s bands were loosed: armed robber, rapist, drug addict, everyone’s bands loosened. An earthquake was released at midnight. If God had informed Paul and Silas that He had a plan that would allow them to be torn and naked, beaten up and thrown into jail, they would have wondered.
God’s plan allowed the enemies to be so foolish to arrest these two innocent men of God and put them in the inner prison. But by the time these two men exploded from the nucleus of that inner prison, the effect was total and devastating. At midnight, they raised their voices in praises and prayer.
I am sure the older prisoners who were there would have been mocking them. “Oh, these ones just got in here. Do not worry, they will soon be tired”. But as they sang, the prison began to dance to their music and there was an earthquake that shook the prison to its ancient foundation. Then there was collective and individual deliverance.
If the door was opened and the men were still in bondage, it would be like nothing had been done. If the man in the house is chained and the doors are opened, his freedom also is limited. God knew that the opening of the gates was not going to be enough, it would be useless unless the personal prisons of the prisoners were broken too.
So there was personal deliverance and there was collective deliverance. The deliverance of Paul and Silas brought about the deliverance of others.
===> I am praying for somebody here, may you be an instrument of deliverance unto others in the name of Jesus.
Listen carefully. So many people’s destinies are tied to yours. You may not agree but it is true. Many people’s breakthroughs are tied to you. Many people’s deliverance depends on your own deliverance. Your painful cries and prayers at midnight will not only deliver you, but will deliver other people who are waiting for you to be delivered so that they can be delivered.
The foundation of many prisons is strong. The foundation of many bondages particularly for the black man is very strong. It will take an earthquake from God to shake them. The purpose of midnight prayers is to provoke that earthquake of deliverance so that you can move God to destroy the roots of what ever you are facing.
So when you need the earthquake of deliverance, what you need is the power of the midnight prayers. We need to cry to the Lord. The Bible says “the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much”. There is one requirement the Lord wants from you: righteousness. So that that prayer can avail much.
So what ever trouble you are facing, if you start a consistent midnight battle against them, as a matter of necessity, the earthquake of deliverance will be released and the problem will bow.
1. Heavens over my (career, calling, academics, business), open by fire in the name of Jesus.
2. My Father, save me and I shall be saved, heal me and I shall be healed in the name of Jesus.
3. Heavens over my spiritual life, open by fire in the name of Jesus.
4. My Father, anywhere I go, darkness must scatter in the name of Jesus.
1. Ancient prison door in my family line, break in the name of Jesus.
2. Powers bewitching my photograph against me, your time is up, die in the name of Jesus.
3. Collective captivity, scatter in the name of Jesus.
4. Earthquake of the Lord’s deliverance, fight for me now in the name of Jesus.
5. Axe of God, cut down every witchcraft tree battling my life in the name of Jesus.
6. Every cage fashioned to imprison my star, I smash you in the name of Jesus.
7. Powers exalting yourselves as eagles against me, I knock you down in the name of Jesus.
8. Thou power of invisible barrier stagnating my life, scatter in the name of Jesus.
9. Powers cutting holes in my pocket, die in the name of Jesus.
10. Powers using the hours of the night to conclude my case, thunder of God, scatter them in the name of Jesus.
God bless you!

Topic: WHAT YOU SOW IS WHAT YOU REAP
Text: Galatians 6:7.
Ministering: Dr. D.K Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)
We are taking our message from verse 7 of Galatians 6 and you would do well to listen very deeply. There is a heavy avalanche of signs and wonders about to bombard God’s people. It is my duty to see that you get those benefits. It is always my duty yo reveal to you what might steal the breakthrough away.
You cannot take God for a ride, and you cannot deceive God; and you will be a big fool if you ever think that there is something you are doing in secret that God does not see. “Be not deceived”, the Bible said, “for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
You cannot plant cocoyam and reap cassava. It is not possible to plant orange and then you reap apple. It is not possible to plant plantain and reap orange. “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”. That is why it has been well said that:
You cannot sow
– bad habits and reap a good character. If your habits are bad, whatever you reap will also be a bad thing.
– jealousy and haterd and reap love and friendship. What you sow is what you reap.
– wicked thoughts, thoughts of fornication, thoughts of adultery and reap a clean life, it is not possible.
– wrong actions, wrong deeds and reap righteousness. It is not possible.
And listen to me very carefully, no man can sow:
– crime and get away with it.
– crooked dealings (your business dealings are always crooked) and have definite success. It is not possible.
– indiscipline, self indulgence and reap a good life: it is not possible.
– fornication and reap a good life, it is not possible. All those things do not go free.
The way God organized the universe is with laws and consequences. There is no inconsequential sin. Every sin has a consequence and the consequence varies.
It is not possible to sow:
– dishonesty and reap integrity, it is not possible.
– disrespect and now reap respect, it is not possible.
– deception and reap confidence, not possible.
– anger and reap gentleness, not possible.
– physical and mental laziness and a reap good position with God or in heaven.
– wickedness and cruelty and hope to reap kindness
– stinginess and reap prosperity. Infact, the reason many Christians are poor is because they are stiny towards God, that is all. And when you give to God, you have given to God. It is not your business to say “I want you to read me a report of how they are spending the money”, it is not your business anymore.
You do not give to God and tie a string to it. And if you say “well, I do not want to contribute because all these pastors will eat my money”, very simple: just find your way to heaven and personally hand over your tithes to God, that is all. Take it to Him yourself, no problem but just make sure you put it down.
You cannot sow:
– cowardice and reap courage, it is not possible.
– destruction of other people’s property and reap protection of yours
– messing up of other people’s children as a teacher or lecturer and hope that your children’s lives would not be messed up.
– neglect of God’s house and hope to receive strength during temptation, it is not possible.
There is no way any sane believer would survive on one service per week. It is like eating one meal per week.
– neglect of your Bible study and reap a well guided life.
– human thorns and expect to reap human roses.
– sin and reap prosperity.
One thing that goes through the Bible from Gensis to Revelation, the central topic of that book from page one to page last is the issue of sin and the redemption of man. That is all. If sin did not come into the world, there would have been no need for a Bible.
– Man may call sin an accident but God calls it an abomination.
– He may call it a blunder but God calls it blindness.
– He may say it is by chance, God calls it a disease.
– Man may say it is an error, God does not agree, He calls it an infirmity.
Man may call it luxury, fun; God calls it leprosy.
– He may call it a mistake but God does not agree; He calls it madness.
– Man may call it his weakness, God calls it foolishness.
Wherever sin is on the driving seat, shame will be at the back seat. So, your worst enemy is not really witches and wizards, it is your sinful heart. Your greatest enemy is not really outsiders, it is yourself. When you wake up in the morning, that person you see in the mirror is actually your worst enemy.
If you deal with him, you will be able to deal with other enemies. If you do not deal with him, he will deal with you. Paul said “I put my body under, I bring it into subjection, so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be a castaway.”
Sin hooks a man in the process of obtaining something he did not have or fearing that he might lose something that he has. And hear me well beloveth: there is no small sin. Its consequences may be immeasurable. If you profit for sin, you shall not profit by sin. Sin is like a small child playing with a snake.
You can decide to choose your sin but you cannot choose its consequences. When God has given somebody a cup of joy, sin makes that cup to leak. The way God has structured the universe is this: the harvest of judgment is sure as soon as the seed of sin is sown.
The Bible now says something scary. It says “because the judgment of sin does not come very suddenly, the heart of man is strong to remain in iniquity.” It says because sin does not come instantly, the heart of man is hardened to continue doing evil, not knowing that he is just adding sin to sin, iniquity to iniquity.
Let me tell you the truth beloveth, sin is not judged the way we see it but as God sees it; because sin will put hell into the soul, and the soul into hell later. Prices may rise and fall, but the price of sin remains the same. The most expensive thing in the world is sin and everyday there are many new sinners but no new sin. But every wickedness and sin will never go unpunished.
Every pleasure of sin is paid for with the coin of sorrow and that sin you are covering up will eventually bring you down except you confess and forsake it. That is why the Bible says “your sin shall find you out”. It will find you out no matter how you cover up.
Every sin has a consequence. Forgiveness does not eliminate discipline. God may forgive you, no problem. Being forgiven means that on the last day, nobody will read that sin on your account but it does not mean that it will remove the consequences. Miriam and Aaron complained about Moses and God said “stand aside”; and put leprosy upon them.
Moses prayed that God should forgive them and God forgave them but they still suffered the leprosy. David slept with Bathsheba and killed the husband. He asked for forgiveness and God said “yes, your sin has been forgiven but (1) the child shall die, (2) the sword shall never depart from your house, (3) you did this thing secretly, but the one that I am going to do to you will be public”.
So it happened, that the son of David was sleeping with the wives of David on top of the roof for the whole Israel to see. Although he had been forgiven, the forgiveness did not remove the consequences of the action he had done. Stop deceiving yourself. If you go into fornication, adultery, stealing and say “I am going for deliverance”, the deliverance has no part in the consequences of the sin you have already committed.
The consequence is sure even if you do 2,000 deliverances. Forgiveness removes the condemnation of sin but it does not eliminate discipline. The Bible says “though hand join in hand, no sinner shall go unpunished”. So, sin has terrible consequences.
Listen to this very carefully: HIV/AIDS can kill a person and he will make heaven, God has forgiven him but during the process he was sleeping around, he had collected his salary advance; he had collected his consequences. This is a strange thing.
All the “well, I will drop my Bible and I will deal with you” and you ask for forgiveness later; God will forgive you but you have attracted consequences and the consequences will certainly take its toll. You knew that something was bad, you knew it was not Christian-like but then you went ahead to do it, bear in mind that you will attract the consequences.
Oh so you are knowingly committing any sin? Go ahead, the consequences will come. Samson’s hair grew again. He was able to pull down the wall but his eyes never saw again. The enemy had plucked out his eyes as a consequence of what he had done.
God may forgive sins but it would have consequences. Some of the consequences require that a man would live with it all the days of his life. So every sin you are living in today, is an evil foundation you are laying, and your sins shall find you out. “O God forgive me, forgive me”, the forgiveness does not free you from the consequences.
There are some things that people do wrong which can be corrected. Maybe somebody stole money and has returned it. The punishment may be limited because the wrong has been corrected but the consequences are still there. Forgiveness does not free you from accountability. Infact as far as heaven is concerned, there is no sin that heaven cannot grant forgiveness to.
But forgiveness does not negate the effect of the sinful conduct. Once the sin is in place, the consequences just follow. So if you do not want:
– your children to steal, do not train them from stolen money.
– a broken home, do not punch your wife now.
– your daughter messed up, do not mess up other people’s daughters now.
You say “blood of Jesus!” Blood of Jesus does not eliminate the consequences of sin. Only one thing can negate the consequences of sin and it is is the mercy of God. But the problem with the mercy of God is that it is not guaranteed. There is no guarantee you will get it for the Bible says “I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy”. So you may not even qualify for that mercy.
So this is why sin is bad. Sin is a clever enemy. We need to cry for the mercy of God today but that mercy can sometimes be obtained in the prison of discipline. To obtain that mercy, tell God the truth. But that mercy is not guaranteed. Forgiveness is guaranteed but no one is sure whether he will receive mercy or not.
So this is why you should not even engage in sin. That is why the Bible warns that “the way of the sinner is hard. The way of the transgressor is hard”. Any sin you commit will find you out:
– to your face
– in your body
– your children
– your conscience
– at the judgment seat of Christ.
What we need this morning is to be open to God. Confess those sins to the Almighty and then forsake them. The tragedy of sin is that it will eliminate you from receiving the blessings of God. Where you are supposed to get blessings, it will obscure it.
That is why somebody said sin:
-is success in nothing
– is self inflicted nonsense.
Sin will invite death and death will vanish when sin disappears
– cannot be undone, only forgiven.
– may have temporary pleasure but the trouble is this: the longer you stay in sin, the less and less it bothers you. You may now get to that dangerous level where your conscience is seared with a hot iron. You are just committing the sin without feeling guilty anymore.
At that level somebody should tell you that you are already lost and there are lots of lost people who come to the house of God.
Bow down your head and ask the Lord to forgive you if you know iniquity has been playing games with you.
1. My Father, have mercy on me in the name of Jesus.
2. Powers assigned to waste my destiny, you are liars, die in the name of Jesus.
3. Powers suppressing my promotion, your time is up, die in the name of Jesus.
4. Powers suppressing my celebration and decoration, you are liars, die in the name of Jesus.
5. Resurrection power, power that cannot be defeated, come upon me now in the name of Jesus.
6. Every spiritual mark suppressing my glory, die in the name of Jesus.
7. Garments of shame and disappointment, you are liars, catch fire in the name of Jesus.
8. Every utterance assigned to pull me down, backfire in the name of Jesus.
9. Serpents and scorpions assigned against my joy, die in the name of Jesus.
10. Every utterance against my glory, backfire in the name of Jesus.
11. Powers blocking my deliverance, what are you waiting for? Die in the name of Jesus
12. Glory killers of my father’s house, your time is up, die in the name of Jesus.
13. Every witchcraft projection into my dreams, backfire in the name of Jesus.
14. O God arise, take away my destiny away from the hands of men in the name of Jesus.
15. Powers of death and hell, separate from my life in the name of Jesus.
God bless you!

Topic: THE SCIENCE OF THE BATTLES OF LIFE
Text: 1 Timothy 6:12, 1 Corinthians 9:26
Ministering: Dr. D.K Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)
We have been ordered to fight. It is not a suggestion. It is not an idea. It is an order. It says “fight the good fight of faith”.
1 Corinthians 9:26 says “…..I fight, not as one that beateth the air” meaning that it is possible to fight and you are just beating the air. And when you beat the air, you are not beating the enemy, you do not get anywhere.
The Bible now says “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.”
The world is a battle field. It is not a playground. Every man and woman has battles to fight. Many are in the middle of their battles now. Some started those battles from their mother’s womb and right now, they are still fighting the battles.
You can wage war against your battles. The battle may seize instantly. It may take five minutes. It may take few seconds. A battle may take a month. It may even take a year. It may take longer. But battles differ from one person to the other. Some battles are very very hard.
If you handle the battle of life casually, you become a casualty yourself. If your battle is organised and you are not organised, you will expire. If your battle is deep and you are not deep, you will expire. If your battle is strong, and you are not strong, you will expire. That is why the Bible says “be strong in the Lord and in the fullness of His might”. The Bible knows we are facing a strong enemy.
Try and understand this very well. Nobody is glorifying the devil but everybody ought to understand who the enemy is. There is no battle you fight and you are successful in without studying the enemy. You must study the enemy. In life, there are 50 categories of battles that men fight. Most people fight in one or two battle fronts, therefore solution may not be difficult to find.
But when you are fighting more than 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 battles at the same time, unless you can find a good prophet who can discern and say “this is battle one, this is battle two, this is battle three, this is battle four, this is battle five, and this is battle six. Okay, now take them one by one”, the person will be wasted.
THE CATEGORIES OF BATTLES THAT MEN FIGHT.
1. The rage of the wicked: You have not done anything wrong, you have not offended anyone, they are just raging against you.
===> May anyone here facing the rage of the wicked be delivered by fire in the name of Jesus.
2. The crying blood: Anytime blood is shed, even if it is ordinary teeth you use to bite somebody and blood is dropping, there is a battle you have raised. Whenever people are murdered, a battle is raised. Whenever abortion is carried out, a battle is raised and the blood will be crying out to heaven for vengeance.
It will be saying “Father, are you going to be watching this woman kill other people? Father, are you going to continue watching this man sponsor abortion? Let us block his way, let us frustrate him”. It is a battle. Unless atonement is made, there is a battle.
3. There is the pursuing agenda: You have done something wrong. You have offended whom you should not offender and the avenger is now pursuing you.
4. The wicked household: Many of us think we have families but we do not have. Joseph too had a family but it was the family that threw him into the pit and they would have killed him if not for Reuben who said “no no no let us not waste him”. He would have been wasted.
Many people have been wasted and rendered useless by the kind of wicked household from which they have come. Infact, by the time you remove the problem of household wickedness from the affair of black man, 90% of his problem is solved.
5. The affliction of the righteous: There is something known as the affliction of the righteous. Being afflicted because of your righteousness. But the Bible says the Lord will deliver you from them all.
6. There is the battle for destiny. Of all battles, that is normally the strongest. God is interested in destinies. The devil is also interested in destinies. God is interested in destinies because it is that destiny that will make God happy.
The devil is also interested in destinies because if you do not fulfil that destiny, you will go to hell fire. Man is also interested in destiny because without destiny fulfilment, you have come to the world in vain. This is why beloveth, the Bible says there is great joy in heaven over one sinner that repents.
If there is great joy in heaven over one sinner that repents, there will be plenty of sorrow in God’s heart over a believer that goes to hell fire. So the battle for destiny is a serious battle.
7. There is the battle for fulfilment. You want to fulfil your purpose in life.
8. There is the battle for relevance. A lot of people are fighting that battle now.
9. There is battle for wholeness. The devil has afflicted man with all kinds of infirmity. There are some sicknesses the scientists do not have name for again. It is affliction. So, man struggles for wholeness.
This is why people swallow panadol, swallow lexotharm, swallow all kinds of drugs, rub herbs together and begin to drink it, and you drink 2 or 3 glasses of concoction, no measure, no tablets, you just drink it into your system. So when you bombard yourself with concoction and it begins to attack your liver and your liver begins to struggle to break it down, then your liver begins to have trouble because of battle for wholeness.
Some will receive incisions on their heads, breasts, legs, wombs because of wholeness.
===> I am praying for somebody here: any power that wants you to be sick shall be sick and die in the name of Jesus.
It is the battle for wholeness that keeps hospitals in business. If not, hospitals would have packed up. That is why when the power of God comes down in a revival and begins to destroy the enemy of wholeness, it makes the hospital to have no patient.
10. There is the battle for daily bread: The enemy has decided that some people will never make it and they will never get a good job. Such people shall receive victory in the name of Jesus.
11. There is the battle for promotion. Nobody wants to be stagnant. Everybody wants to move. But you need a battle to move.
12. There is a battle to enlarge your coast. To enlarge your coast, you need to fight.
13. There is the battle of curses and negative covenants. A lot of people are labouring under curses and negative covenants and they do not know how to survive it. Curses are terrible things. Covenants are negative things and it is a serious matter.
When a person is under a covenant and you do not know, it is a terrible thing. When your parents have made covenants with your destiny and you are not aware, it is a terrible thing indeed.
14. There is the battle for marriage. For some people, the enemy does not want them to marry. For some people, when they marry, the enemy wants to destroy it.
15. The programmed trouble: They program it. E.g every March, every August, something keeps happening. It is programmed.
16. The yoke with unbelievers. You cannot bless whom God has cursed. If God has cursed somebody and you join your business with that person, you become accuses with the person. We call it “yoked with unbelievers”.
You went and married a child of the devil by your own decision. You therefore succeeded in making the devil your father-in-law and since the devil is your father-in-law because you have married his child, he will give you serious trouble and I want you to understand this very, very well.
17. There is the battle of conspiracy in the heavenlies. The Bible talks about spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies and they conspire against people.
===> May the spirits blocking the heavens of anyone here clear away by the blood of Jesus in the name of Jesus!
It is the conspiracy in the heavens that blocks the heavens.
18. The envious enemies: You have not offended them, they do not like the way you walk, they do not like the way you talk, how God is blessing you, how you sing, they do not want your talent, they feel threatened and so envy sets in.
19. The vandalised destiny. They have already taken the destiny away. Now, you want to fight to recover it. It is a battle.
20. The inherited burdens. You did not manufacture the burden. It is your forefathers who manufactured it but now you are carrying the burden, all over the place.
21. The battle against swallowers. They swallow everything and the person cannot be found again.
22. The battle against the wasters. The Bible says there are powers called “the wasters” and their assignment is to waste. So you find young ladies now wasting their virginity. A lot of young men waste their virtues. A lot of young men waste their talents.
23. The battle against the emptiers: they allow people to gather, then pour everything away. Very wicked spirits.
24. The anti prosperity arrows: once that arrow is fired against a person, if you give him one billion naira, he would soon come to the same poverty. All investments would yield nothing, but those they teach to do it will do well.
===> May every anti prosperity arrow fired against anyone here go back to the senders in the name of Jesus.
25. The circle of tribulation: as one problem is going, another one is coming and you do not understand yourself again. It seems as if you are always in trouble. You solve one, another one would turn up.
26. The marine warfare.
===> May anyone here facing marine warfare be delivered in the name of Jesus.
27. The battle for children. Some fight serious warfare to even have children because the enemy is against those children. Some wait for those children to come and begin to attack them.
28. The mystery of strongholds. A stronghold is a place that is difficult to attack. A secret place.
29. The power of the strongman. The Bible identifies an entity called “the strongman”. The Bible says “when a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace.” The Bible says “no man can enter into the house of a strong man and plunder his goods unless he first of all binds the strongman”. The issue of strongman is a very serious issue indeed.
30. The problem of closed doors: You see a good thing, you are approaching it and all of a sudden the door closes.
31. The battle at the edge of success or what some people call “near success syndrome”.
32. The embargo by covens: they lay an embargo on a particular department of the person’s life in the covens.
33. The problem of environmental attack: that is in the environment you are in, you are facing serious attacks. The environment is causing trouble for you.
34. The problem with the spirit of death and hell. A lot of people die when they should not die.
35. The power of star hunters: they hunt for people’s stars to cage the star and technically demote the person.
36. Collective captivity: everybody in the same family is going through the same problem.
37. The dream criminals: where they invade people’s dreams, plant sicknesses, do trouble and cause confusion.
38. The mystery of seduction: You will see a man with a beautiful wife at home but he is busy running after the streets with all kinds of people. Some powers are seducing him.
40. The battle for mental health: the devil attacks people in the head.
41. The battle for control. You know they are controlling your life and you want to set your life free.
42. Evil loneliness.
43. Territorial bondages.
44. Generational battles: battles going from generation to generation.
45. Evil spiritual load: Jesus said “my yoke is easy and my burden is light”.
46. Strange voices speaking to people to do what they should not do.
47. Altar battles: when you have battles raised against you and you are fighting them.
48. Placental bondage
49. The Jonah syndrome: that is, God is the one fighting you now, because He wants you to work for Him but you are running. So, just like He dealt with Jonah, He is dealing with you. And God did not mind finishing everybody on that boat because of Jonah.
50. The mysterious battle. Strange battle. Nobody can explain it.
So these are the 50 battles that man fights.
WHAT DO WE DO?
1. You need to become a friend of God because He Himself is a Man of War.
2. You need to pray enquiry prayers to discern the battle you are fighting.
3. Let courage rise within you. Courage is not the absence of fear, it is the ability to go on inspite of the fact that you are afraid.
4. Understand that the battle you face is not stronger than the Lord. God can sometimes allow you to go through the battle so you can find out how powerful your God is.
5. Learn from your mistakes. Heaven does not like those who repeat errors.
6. Plug yourself into the power of prayer.
7. Wage war against your war. Raise a battle against your battle and as you wage war and battle against your battle, the Lord who is a Man of War gives uncommon victories.
1. Altars of my father’s house empowering my battles, die in the name of Jesus.
2. O God arise, give me prophetic dreams, O God arise, give me prophetic eyes in the name of Jesus.
3. O hand of God, rewrite my story, restore my glory in the name of Jesus.
4. Any power that says I will not live and prosper, what are you waiting for? Die in the name of Jesus.
5. Any spiritual gun targeted at my glory, backfire in the name of Jesus.
6. Powers sucking goodness from my body, die in the name of Jesus.
7. Any power that says I will not rise while they are still alive, kill yourself in the name of Jesus.
8. Powers working against answers to my prayers, die in the name of Jesus.
9. O God arise and give me a miracle that will make me forget my past sufferings in the name of Jesus.
10. Long term battles in my life, come out and die in the name of Jesus.
11. Any good thing in my life that the enemy has buried, come alive in the name of Jesus.
12. Battles assigned against me and my children, what are you waiting for? Die in the name of Jesus.
13. Battles assigned to split my life into two, catch fire in the name of Jesus.
14. Any cage that has refused to let me go, catch fire in the name of Jesus.
15. Powers assigned to break my ladder of greatness, fall down and die in the name of Jesus.
God bless you!

Topic: LET NOT ONE OF THEM ESCAPE.
Text: 1 Kings 18:40
Ministering: Dr. Daniel Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)
In 1 Kings 18, we take our title and message for this morning’s prayers. From there, we take a short phrase for our message this morning.
Until these prophets of Baal were slaughtered, the rain of blessing did not fall upon the people. There are some elements, physical, spiritual or whatever that can be the insulation of heaven, insulation of breakthrough over your head and until the sword of Elijah kills them, there will be no breakthrough.
He said “let not one of them escape” because a single one of them that escapes will go and reorganise and reconcile with others and build up strength and come back to fight again. In several places in scriptures, you see this “do not allow them escape” because the giant you did not kill today will arise later to defeat you or to give you a fight.
That enemy that you left half dead may resurrect again, gather strength and launch a counter attack. Listen very carefully this morning beloveth. This is a time for many crucial decisions. The Bible says “if I keep alive that which I should kill, I make myself a transgressor”.
So those things that ought to die must die, and those things that ought to live must live. You should be able to take some conclusive steps this morning. These days, we have plenty of people who come to church, but no power. We have plenty of people who come to church, no maturity.
We have plenty of people who come to church, they have big names but no authority. They have big titles but no power. They are what the Bible calls “clouds and winds without rain”.
And those of you who are workers here, whether you’re in the choir, an usher, in welcoming team, or this and that: Stephen in the Bible who moved mountains for Jesus, who began to move in signs and wonders and who was the first martyr to be killed, was an ordinary usher.
He was not among the apostles, he was an ordinary usher and he began to preach messages that even the apostles were afraid to preach. He began to move in signs and wonders. That is the standard of the olden days church. The ushers were preaching the word, healing the sick, raising the dead, moving in signs and wonders- just ushers.
So, if you are not really ready to change, MFM is a wrong place to come to. A lot of beautiful names and beautiful faces but that is not what God is looking for, now. What He is looking for now is usable men and women. The scarcity of the power of God in any generation is not the fault of God.
It is because He cannot find usable men and women. Men and women are more interested in dressing up, wearing the latest shoes, buying the latest perfumes, doing all the latest things but without adequate power to cope in this evil generation in which we find ourselves and so every day and night, people are dying like houseflies.
I want you to understand this very well. Majority of the frustrations, lack of fulfilment, financial poverty, powerlessness, chronic insignificance and failure we christians are going through now is because we did not kill those things we should kill. They are escaping.
Elijah said “take ye the prophets of Baal, and let not one of them escape”. The ministry of these days now, if you must survive and if you must carry the power of God in this generation, is the ministry of “let not one of them escape”.
As I stand before you this morning, I am deeply troubled that within the next 50, 60 years, if something drastic is not done, majority of the present day christians who are in church are going to hell fire. They are men and women of carefree attitude.
It is a tragedy that men and women who confess Jesus Christ will spend eternity in hell fire. That is why I say today is a day for conclusive prayer. The kind of conclusive prayer that man of God prayed. He said “Father, the next time I tell lies, let all my teeth fall out!” Conclusive prayer to toe the line of the Almighty.
Matthew 7:13 says “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:” Why is the gate wide and the way broad? It is because you can manoeuvre. You can do whatever you like, talk the way you want, not caring what is going on, and plenty of room to manoeuvre.
But in the narrow way, you are restricted, you are restrained, you are limited, there is so discipline involved, “because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Matthew 7:14).
You do not compare yourself with others as Christians, you compare yourself with the Lord Jesus. So this morning the cry is loud and clear: examine yourself. There is a narrow way, there is a broad way. It is not a case of multiple choice questions. You are either in the narrow way or the broad way.
All those works you say you are doing, “I sing, I do this, I do that” the Bible calls them filthy rags. God crushed His only begotten son because of us. So this is a day for self examination. You must as a matter of fact set up a courtroom in your soul. When you do self examination, it will enable you to treat your spiritual wound while it is still fresh before it becomes rotten.
You must kill the bird of sin at an early stage because if it becomes a big bird, it becomes a problem. Use this morning beloveth to search out the pollutions in your spirit, search for those thrones of unrighteousness in your soul and kill them. Do not let any of them escape.
Do not harbour a pet sin that you are cleverly doing under, and you think heaven does not see you. It is a tragedy. Examine yourself. Something is responsible for:
– your spiritual powerlessness.
– the strangulation of your spirit man.
– your spirit man being too weak to fight. How can a man of 60 years still be controlled by a bottle of beer?
– your inability to resist spiritual attacks.
– the enemy to come against you and have a field day.
– the arrows of the enemy to be prospering in your life, because for the enemy to come against you and to succeed, there must be something in your life they are using to get inside.
– for your inability to resist temptation.
– demonic people to call your name “Josiah, come out” and they can bring your spirit out of your body.
– that evil summon that you are responding to.
– those powers threatening you in the dream and that threat is becoming a reality.
– the rapture failure dreams that you are having: rapture is taking place and you are not going anywhere
– your hatred of long session of prayers. Some do not like long prayers at all.
– your tiredness in the spirit realm
– making you to choose to commit sin instead of suffering
– making you to fail to embrace the cross of Christ.
– your spirit man to be featherweight. So, anytime the devil looks at you, he could blow breeze at you and blow you to the bar beach or one baba on the mountain; he just blows you all over the place. So you have become a prayer collector.
– you to only want to work for God when there is monetary gain.
– you to just fall down when a war comes against you
– regular dream defeat
– the worry and anxiety that has captured your soul and every time you are developing high blood pressure.
– the laziness of the heart and laziness of the memory and you cannot memorize the word of God, you cannot go deep into the things of God.
– the spiritual dullness you are experiencing
– the oppression that is penetrating into your life
– your vagabond prayer life: prayer life that has no root, no tap root.
– your deep rooted unbelief of the powerless tongues you are speaking.
God spoke in the garden. The serpent contradicted the word of God. It was now left for Eve to believe one or the other. God said “this is it”. The serpent said “it is not like that”. Eve chose the serpent and obeyed the serpent. This is where we find ourselves now.
The Bible makes us to understand that the heart of man is desperately wicked, who can know it? Shine a light. Put a searchlight in the laboratory of your heart.
A heart can be:
– grieved; it needs surgery.
– sorrowful; it needs surgery.
– soft, so soft that all things go in; it needs surgery.
– a heart of wax; it needs surgery.
– a failing heart; it needs surgery.
– broken; it needs surgery.
– fleshy, always thinking about things of the flesh; it needs surgery.
– wicked, every though of the heart is wicked; it needs surgery.
So as we are here today, we have categories of people and categories of Baal living inside each person. Your heart is like a zoo; there are different animals living in there. You have to kill those animals. Let not one of them escape. The one that escapes will bring your battles back, and this is the mystery of problems that refuse to go away.
This is the mystery of enemy launching attacks because what you should kill is alive. You are saying “every witchcraft power working against my life, die!” but the witch in you which is rebellion to God is still alive and you want to go and kill the witch outside.
That is why our prayers are sometimes not effective because you say the witch should die but it is the witch in you that should die first. Check your heart now.
Do you have:
– an evil heart?
– a hardened heart?
– a deceitful heart?
– a proud heart?
– a hypocritical heart?
– a foolish heart?
– what the Bible calls ‘abominable heart’?
– what the Bible says a double heart? You are not stable, your mind is here and there.
– a defiled heart?
– a wounded heart?
– an arrogant heart? You have promoted yourself above other people and you feel that you are better than every other person.
– a stony heart?
– a lustful heart?
– a blind heart?
– the unknowing heart?
– the uncircumcised heart?
– the darkened heart?
You might be pushing these things aside but heaven sees them and is pointing to them, saying “will you allow this evil to escape? If you allow it to escape this is what is happening.” God told Saul “kill the amalekites. Do not reserve any. Let none remain.”
But he did not. He reserved some of them and eventually and they came back to trouble the Israelites later. So, today is a day for conclusive prayers. The Bible tells us in Mark 10:15 that “Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.”
You need to become a child before God today. Who are the best learners on the planet? Children. Who are the best questioners on the planet? Children. Who are the most persistent human beings on earth? Children. Who are the most active humans on earth? Children. Who are those who get the most pleasure out of simple things? Children.
Who are those who make the most astonishing, original associations? Children. Who are those that are quick to forget quarrel, bitterness and move on? Children. That is why the Bible says “except you receive the kingdom of God as a little child, you shall not enter therein”.
When the judgment comes, that hidden thing that you are keeping, that you do not give up, it will reveal you. When attacks come, it will reveal you.
1. Every assignment of dark hunters against my star, wither in the name of Jesus.
1. Power of King Uzziah in my life, die in the name of Jesus.
2. O God arise, kill every idol in my heart in the name of Jesus.
3. Every thing I have suffered in ignorance, clear away in the name of Jesus.
4. Dark powers that have taken advantage of me, die in the name of Jesus.
4. Where is the Lord God of Elijah? Draw me out of the dark law of my family line in the name of Jesus.
5. O God arise, deliver my destiny from the hands of men in the name of Jesus.
6. Powers mentioning my name in the coven, fall down and die in the name of Jesus.
7. Satanic imagination against my existence, scatter in the name of Jesus.
8. Powers calling my name from the grave, shut up by fire in the name of Jesus.
9. Eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood, your time is up, die in the name of Jesus.
10. Witchcraft manipulation, I am not your candidate, backfire in the name of Jesus.
11. (Pray this 3 times) Powers stealing from my land, your time is up, die in the name of Jesus.
God bless you❗

Power Must Change Hands Programme
November 6th, 2021
Topic: CONFRONTING THE RAGE OF VAMPIRE SPIRITS II
Text: Psalm 27:2, Isaiah 49:26
Ministering: Dr. Daniel Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)
During the last Power Must Change Hands programme, we began to look at a very crucial topic. Today is a day to pray the concluding prayers which we could not finish last time. This is a matter that requires serious praying – curative prayer, preventive prayers, barricading prayers.
We read from Psalms 27:2 that day. If you were not here last PMCH, get the CD or go and listen to it online. It says “When the wicked, even my enemies came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.”
I began to explain to you last time that there is a terrible rage on now – the rage of the vampire spirits. Drinking blood, human blood. Wasting human lives. Cutting short a lot of destinies. They disgrace so many lives.
They cause the wars, the chaos, the looting, the famine, the tragedies. And like a vampire does, they are interested in only one thing: blood. And so anywhere you see blood being shed, there is a spirit behind it. It is the spirit of the vampire. The eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood.
It is unfortunate but it is true that there are so many possessed human beings now. They are possessed with this spirit and they do not mind wasting lives.
===> This is why I am praying for all who are listening to me here today that any power that wants to use you as a sacrifice shall destroy themselves in the name of Jesus.
Their major interest is the blood they want to shed. The blood itself is an incredible material responsible for so many things in our lives. The blood is very very complex and important to our lives. Blood, up till now cannot be manufactured; they only get blood from donors.
The human is body soul and spirit. The human is a spirit living in a body and having a soul. That body is now divided into 3 compartments:
– the flesh
– the bones and
– the blood.
So that blood you see is a living liquid. It is alive. So the eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood head for this very important part of human life. And when they are hungry for blood, they are seeking for blood to put into their blood banks, they cause unexplainable accidents where blood is spilled anyhow.
They are responsible for strange deaths, ritual sacrifices, murders, assassination. They are responsible for drying up sicknesses that doctors cannot explain. The eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood are responsible for wounds that have refused to heal.
They are responsible for many miscarriages, still births, abortions and all kinds of maternal deaths. All the kidnappings, genocides, civil wars, terrorism and all activities that lead to unnecessary shedding of human blood that waste lives, they are behind it.
Unfortunately, we have modern day vampires now; people who actually are interested, and enjoy human blood being shed.
===> This is why I am decreeing right now, that in every life gathered here, in the whole of this nation and any part of the world where the vampire spirit is operating, we bind and cast them out in the name of Jesus!
So, it is disaster to be ignorant of these things. Like I was sharing on Wednesday, there is always a spirit behind all these activities we are seeing. And if you do not deal with that spirit, it would continue.
We now have to rise up as Christians and use our most potent weapon which is the weapon of prayer to stop them before they stop us, to stop them before they take us over, to tell them “this is how far you can go, you cannot come close to our environment here.”
We have the power to decide that we will not allow our environment to be overrun by the powers of the vampires. It is important to pray that they must destroy themselves. It is important to pray that their medicine, their fetish power, their magic will not work.
It is important to pray that these people will be put to shame: these kidnappers and ritual killers. I want you to raise up your hands in anger and shout this loud and clear:
===> Powers behind ritual killers, arise, fight them in the name of Jesus!
They operate in the spirit realm using the weapons of oppression, infirmity, spirit of death and hell, witchcraft powers, evil pronouncements, familiar spirits. They activate tragedy. They bring in the spirit of murder and assassination.
They bring in the spirit of suicide, the curse of family destruction, evil summon and environmental bondages and poisons. These are weapons they are using to waste human beings and drink blood.
Today, we need to wage war against these powers and that is what the rest of our prayers today will concentrate on.
A barricading prayer that you will not be a sacrifice in their hands, an attacking prayer to dissolve their prayers, to wage war against them where they are and cancel their effects, then environmental prayer so they do not move close to where we are.
CONFESSION AND PRAYERS ON IMPLEMENTS OF LABOUR.

Topic: THE POWER BEHIND
Text: 1 John 5:19, Matt 16:21-23, 2 Kings 6:14-17
Ministering: Dr. D.K Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)
I believe you brought your anointing oil here. Tonight, we have ten disconnecting prayers to pray. I will explain very soon. You will do well to listen very carefully tonight.
The Bible makes it categorically clear that our world is swimming in the ocean of wicked sharks. The whole world lieth in wickedness. In looking for money, fame, pleasure, power, people have gone deep into wickedness.
Business people have become wicked. Career people have become wicked because they want money, fame, pleasure and power. Everything that the Bible concludes under vanity upon vanity, all is vanity. The whole world lieth in wickedness. The implication of what I am saying tonight is serious.
It means that behind all crisis, turmoil, turbulence, earthquakes, violence, terrorism, wicked activities, kidnapping, rape and everything that is going on, activities of eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood, merciless killings of people, merciless wastage of life, negative situations of life that you see physically, horrible and wicked things that you see, lies an array of very wicked spirits provoking these things, propelling them, encouraging these things to happen.
You may not see those spirits behind if your eyes are not opened. You may say “oh! It is an accident! Oh! It is a stray bullet! Oh! They just scattered the marriage!” But behind, there is an array of malevolent spirits pushing all these strange things and behaviours.
===> I am praying for anyone hearing me tonight, every faceless, unknown, masquerading powers behind any problem you are facing, we bury them by fire in the name of Jesus! (A ten fold Amen).
Evil is sponsored from the spirit realm and then manifests in the physical. So, the rule is very simple. If you contend with the spirits behind the situation, then you stop the problem that it is creating. If you leave that spirit alone and you are just fighting the surface, they are still there causing trouble.
It is a tragedy when you are clearing the cobwebs but you leave the spider untouched. The spider is still there creating the cobwebs. After you have cleared and cleared and cleared, they come back and build up other ones.
===> Once again I am praying here tonight, all the unfriendly friends, fake friends, faceless enemies, unknown antagonists, envious witchcraft assigned against you, shall be buried alive in the name of Jesus!
You might find it difficult to believe but there are spirits that walk on their heads.
===> I am praying for somebody here, any strange spirits assigned against your life, I bury them now in the name of Jesus.
What kind of wicked spirit is this, to come to a crusade walking upside down? We need to begin to see the spirits behind things that are happening. Moses battled the spirits behind all they were doing in Egypt. He battled the gods they were serving until the final one and then they had to let them go.
===> Every power behind any problem you face shall be disgraced tonight in the name of Jesus.
In that second scripture, it was Peter Jesus faced, but He knew there was a spirit behind what Peter was saying. He could see that spirit. So a person could be talking and there is a bad spirit behind him making those utterances against your life.
There could be spirits propelling people to issue curses on you and saying things against your life. This is why I want your Amen to be aggressive seven fold again:
===> Every spirit behind, strategically issuing curses against your life, we kill the curses now in the name of Jesus!
In 2 Kings 6:16, we understand that there are spiritual forces that this servant could not see, backing Elisha up. At the same time, there are spiritual forces which this servant could not see, backing up the enemy. Every enemy has some forces backing them up. All the forces of evil, have forces backing them up.
===> The power base and powers backing up your enemies shall be disgraced tonight in the name of Jesus.
===> I am praying for somebody here, all the spirits of “We have been doing it, and we shall continue to do it to harm you” shall die violently in the name of Jesus.
===> Are you here tonight? The strong man behind all your problems shall receive angelic slap in the name of Jesus!
Here in this third passage, we see Elisha seeing into the spirit realm and seeing the spirits behind those who came to attack him. The Bible tells us categorically that “I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”. It did not say “may not prevail”. It said “shall not”.
Meaning that the gate of hell is not strong enough to stand up to our direct attack as a church of the Living God and that the church of God must be on the offensive to attack those gates of hell. Why did God give us armour? Why did He give us sword? Why did He give us power over all their powers?
Or did Jesus not say “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over every power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”? Why do we have these great weapons of warfare that are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds?
Is it to keep peace with the enemy? Is it to pacify the enemy? Is it to begin to go into their camps to get things from them? No. It is to fight. To storm the gates of hell and put the devil and his agents to flight. The Bible makes it categorically clear that you can resist the enemy and the enemy will then flee from you.
Meaning that the enemy can be made to flee. Try and understand beloveth that there is much more in existence than that which we can see with our ordinary eyes. If you pick up newspapers or switch on your television set, the horrible things you are seeing there will show you that there are wicked spirits behind evil things going on in our world.
Unfortunately, many churches remain ignorant about the existence of these bad spirits and it is sad. Very very sad that a lot of those who call themselves Christians are even going into the occult to go and look for power to fight their battles.
They are looking for strange men and women to lay hands on them and pray for them. It is unfortunate but it is true, it is lamentable but it is a fact that witchcraft covens are growing fatter and fatter everyday. I can confirm that for you. More people are joining the occult because they claim that God is too slow, whereas God is not slow.
God does not operate microwave power. You have to operate according to His standard. God is not pleased with all these things. It is important that we begin to allow our spiritual eyes to begin to see the spirits behind kidnapping, ritual killings and begin to attack them; not the men carrying out their instructions but the spirits behind them.
When Elisha described to his servants what he was seeing, the servant could count more spirits that were behind Elisha than the enemies. Do you understand what the Bible means when it says “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world”? There is a he that is in the world but there is a He in you. He is greater but you could decide to limit His presence, and power in your life.
There are many people here. Witchcraft, you do not have. Familiar spirit, you do not have. Incantations, you do not understand. Fetish power, you do not understand. Your only power is God. And now you are offending that God by sinning. How will He support you when the time of trouble comes?
Elisha saw the armies of God. We too can see the armies of God behind us. The way the battle goes depend on how we fight it. We are in a strategic position. We can command both sides. The forces of God that are with us; we can put to work and the forces that are on their side, we can dismantle.
===> I am praying for you that brother, I am praying for you that sister, the village witchcraft, the place of birth witchcraft, the environmental witchcraft, your career witchcraft that have been rejoicing over you, they shall be buried tonight in the name of Jesus!
The Bible says “the spirits are subject unto us”.
===> I am praying for somebody here, every hidden wickedness assigned to torment your destiny must be buried tonight in the name of Jesus.
The Bible makes us to understand that we have power over their powers but we must use that power. We must cast cowardice and faithlessness aside. We must cast fear aside. I am going to pray one prayer now:
===> The anointing that will make you a terror to the kingdom of darkness, receive that anointing in the name of Jesus!
You need to exercise that power tonight. Exercise it tonight. The Bible says in Matthew 16:19 – And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
The initiative is from the earth. We bind it here first. It is after you bind it here that heavens will now bind theirs. That is why in Jacob’s ladder, we see angels ascending and descending. The initiative is from the earth. Can you raise up your right hand where you are and shout this after me loud and clear:
===> By the covenant blood of Jesus, I bind every power troubling my destiny in the name of Jesus.
Matthew 18:18 tells us – Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
That is, where we are tonight, we can decide to bind every power of kidnapping in Lagos State, in Nigeria, we can decide to bind all ritualistic around. Whatsoever we bind on earth, heaven will say “they have bound it there, let us bind it here”. There is a binding prayer and there is a loosening prayer.
What does that mean? Certain breakthroughs have been hijacked, and stolen and tied down in the spirit realm. You have the authority to loosen them and release them unto your life.
===> I am praying for somebody here, every rope tying down your achievements, tying down your progress in the spirit realm, let them be loosed in the name of Jesus.
The Bible tells us “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
We are the ones expected to wrestle. We initiate the wrestling match. We do not wait for them to come and start it. That is the power God has given to us which we do not use. We are not fighting people. No. If you hear MFM prayer saying “die”, it is not the person, it means the powers behind. It means “become unavailable”.
There were some spirits like that in the Bible. They begged Jesus “do not send us into the abyss”. They begged Him because once they go there, that is the end of their activities here on earth. So, technically, if Jesus had sent them there, He had killed them. That is the end for them. They cannot act.
We are not fighting people made of flesh and blood but against unseen persons, persons without body, against unseen things, against huge number of bad, wicked, evil spirits. We are fighting principalities, rulers, leaders, executives, chiefs, heads of organisations, masterminds, controllers, strongmen.
There are also some people, they have covenanted their spirits to Satan. Sometimes when they talk to a woman and the woman does not want to agree, they become spirit husband and go attack the woman at night. They are moving their wicked spirit men about.
We are fighting against such powers too. Against their tricks, against their strategies, against their craftiness, against their satanic intelligence, against their skills, their deceitfulness, their devices, and their manipulation.
I want you to really pray here tonight because each of these ten prayers has breakthroughs and testimonies attached.
2 Corinthians 2:11 says – “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” So it is to our advantage to already know who, how many, their individual powers. It is to our advantage to know what they do and to know what areas they attack.
Bottom line of what we are saying tonight before we start praying is that there is a principal force behind every dark work and our battle is with those powers behind them. Those are the forces we battle with. Stop launching your warfare against the fruit, the flower or the work.
If you are successful in those attacks, you may not have touched the main source. Then they will be free to do their work elsewhere. Do not launch your attack against the fruit and the trees but launch it against the root. Battle the strongman behind it and then you get results.
(Sing: I plead the blood, the blood of Jesus; I plead the blood, the blood of Jesus).
(Sing: The resurrection power, work miracles in my life, today, today, work miracles in my life; the resurrection power, work miracles in my life, today, today, work miracles in my life).
1. O God arise and destroy every coffin that has buried my destiny in the name of Jesus.
2. Powers investigating my destiny to make me a slave, die in the name of Jesus.
3. (Grab your oil and anoint your forehead) O God arise, remove death and grave from my family in the name of Jesus.
4. Every curse hiding in my name, die in the name of Jesus.
5. Powers donating my blessings to evil altars, blood of Jesus, kill them now in the name of Jesus.
6. Family battle, family battle, family battle, hear the word of the Lord, expire in the name of Jesus.
7. Every curse assigned to make me and my family suffer, break in the name of Jesus.
8. Angel of death, kill every power that is reducing my testimonies in the name of Jesus.
9. (Anoint your head again) Powers behind my problems, hear the word of the Lord, die in the name of Jesus.
10. Owners of evil load, hear the word of the Lord, carry your load in the name of Jesus.
God bless you!
