TOPIC: Who Am I? (A Teaching Series – Part 3)
Anchored Scriptures: Jeremiah 1:4, Luke 1:13-17
Ministering: Dr. D. K. Olukoya (G.O, MFM Worldwide)
We continue our series, ‘Who Am I’?. And for the past two weeks, I’m been encouraging you to pray:
▪︎ Father, show me the secret of my life.
▪︎ Father, show me beneficial secrets about my life.
▪︎ Father, show me who am I.
▪︎ Father, show me ‘your me’.
▪︎ Father, show my house to my house.
Very deep destiny prayers, we resume scriptures very quickly:
*Jeremiah 1:4*, meaning that as you’re sitting down there; before your father even went to talk to your mother about marriage, God knew about you.
If Jeremiah did not know that he was a prophet, and he began to share a message like this; and he began to pray ‘O God show me who I am, show me the secret of my life, the word of God came unto him. One day as he continue to enquire, ‘you’re a prophet, you have been ordained’; the secrets have been made known to him.
In *Luke 1:13-17*, meaning that a child inside a womb can be filled with the Holy Spirit even before that child is born. *(John 1)*
Story about Apostle Joseph Babalola’s school of the prophets, shared by Daddy G.O:
I shared this last week that the great apostle Joseph Babalola use to train pastors and prophets. He did not go to the kind of bible college that we know now, rather he had what the Bible call; _‘the school of the prophets’_, where the master will sit down, the students will seat around him and he will begin to teach them face to face, so they gathered like that around him. So the great apostle had a class like that. He had 36 students at that time. He had taught them for two weeks or so.
Then one day, around the third week, the people came gathered as usual, ‘good morning daddy, good morning baba’; but he answered no one. He took his pen, and just started writing, he did not look up, neither did he respond to those greeting him. He wrote and wrote, not talking to the students who sat down looking at him; he wrote for close to two hours.
After he had finished writing, he looked up and said ‘everybody listen to me carefully’, he began to call their names one by one: ‘you, Joshua Oke, you are not a pastor, you’re not a prophet, you are a policeman, so carry your bag and get out of here’; ‘you, brother oke nla, you are not a pastor, you’re not a prophet, you’re a farmer, carry your bag and go’. He began to address them one by one.
Out of 36, he read out 33 names that are not pastors and prophets, and he asked them to walk out; remaining only three. Look at that percentage, only three out of thirty six got their destiny right; the other thirty three didn’t get it right.
May be they just liked the title, may be they believed it is an avenue of making money like most people are doing pastorate work now because they want money.
They protested, they said ‘daddy, no, God told me, God spoke to me’; not a word of response from the great apostle, he had said what he wanted to say. So it was only those three he began to train. Beloved, when he finished with those three men, the devil knew that he was in trouble.
===> I’m praying for somebody here, that any power that wants to push you into the wrong journey of life, that wants to dis-pattern your divine pattern, no matter how far they have travelled with you; I command them to release you now in the name of Jesus!
The story of a sister, shared by Daddy G.O:
Many of you don’t know, when I came back from England after my PhD; we started the gospel church in makoko area. It was a rough terrain at that time. That was the first Pentecostal Church in that place, before then; no Pentecostal Church could stay. It was headquarters for all kinds of purple and white garment places then. It was there this thing happened, that I am going to tell you.
This lady, very brilliant; ‘A’ class, but occasionally, she just becomes insane. They will have to take her to the hospital and give her drugs. It takes her two months or so, to recover herself again; and this was going in and out, in and out.
I gave her a prayer point, *‘O lord, show me the secrets of my life’*. She prayed, ha; she prayed. She now came to tell me something, she said ‘sir, when I prayed, a man stood before me and he said *_‘’I am going to give you four choices, tell me which one you’re going to pick now: the man said cow, goat, dog, leaf; which one do you pick?”_*; she said: leaf’ and the vision cleared. But by the time she told me, I understood it. Leaf, on the tree; the wind always blow it about. So, really; inside inside, the enemy had converted her destiny to that of a leaf. But what she inherited to start with, they were not good as well: cow, goat, dog, leaf.
Can you raise up your right hand and shout this loud and clear, this is not the kind of prayer you are feeling sorry for anybody; or you want to negotiate:
===> Powers assigned to reinvent my destiny for evil, die in the name of Jesus!
The story of the daughter of an MFM member, shared by Daddy G.O:
One more thing I will share with you before we pray again.
A woman in this church brought her daughter for prayers. Strange case and a strange situation. I have a diary at home, I call it ‘unusual cases’. If I bring that book here and I begin to read, you will conclude that ‘no, no no, that these are superstitions and it can never happen’; but that is what we see day to day. She brought her daughter to me for prayers. This lady had a first born, a girl, no problem. Stress-less pregnancy, good time; and safe delivery.
Then she took in again, this time it was a boy. Immediately she got to the maternity ward and she was trying to deliver the baby, they asked her to push. Immediately the head of the boy came out of that womb, an unseen force entered into that room and cut off the head. The head of the baby was rolling on the floor and the doctor fled. It was strange and they told her not to come to their clinic again. She cried and cried and cried, and she forgot about that one. Later, she got pregnant again, this time it was a girl and there was no problem. It was stress free and everything went well this time; the baby girl is alive and doing well.
Later, she took in again, this time it was a boy; and exactly this same thing that happened to the first delivery of her male child happened again. The baby’s head was cut off by an unseen power that rushed into the room, a wind; and that was why the mother brought her. Her mother comes to MFM, but the lady does not come to MFM. I now said ‘okay, you are going to work hard and you need first of all to understand why’.
I asked her to pray this same prayer: *‘Lord, show me the secrets of my life, show me, show me who I am*’. She started praying, then all of a sudden, one day in a dream, she came across a tall man. This man was dressed in a dark regalia, and that man said _‘listen, there is no negotiation; you have to pick one: either male or female, as you can’t have both’_. He further said to her: _‘do you want male, then I will have to kill all the females you have now, so you can start having male’_. Then she woke up from the dream, very deep secret. What kind of wickedness is this?
Can you raise up your right hand again, as we are not here to negotiate or joke this morning: *===> Powers assigned to force me to accept evil, you’re a liar; die in the name of Jesus!*
God knew Jeremiah when he was in his mother’s belly. God sanctioned him and ordained him to be a prophet. Like I said last week, if by any abortion, Jeremiah was killed; it would not have been Jeremiah alone that was killed, destinies could have been killed. Jeremiah’s mother may not have known the kind of person that was aborted, but God would know and heaven would have been unhappy.
His mother may not have known that he was a potentially mighty prophet of God, but he was in God’s agenda and God would have felt the loss. So all of us here, God knew us before we were formed; He has a plan for every lives. The plan could be fulfilled or aborted, depending on you and other factors. Everybody is unique in His plan.
– So, should you feel so frustrated and you take your own life? You would have killed a future prophet you’re suppose to be.
– Should you feel so defeated today, as to destroy yourself? You would have destroyed the prophet, programmed to manifest tomorrow. Then it would not be only just you that died, not only one man or woman that died, no no no; a whole divine mission is killed. A whole life time project would have been aborted and the Almighty God would be seriously disappointed.
– Should the enemy move into a life very early and destroy that life?
– Should the forces of wickedness divert and abort that divine schedule? It would not be just one life that was wasted, no; a mission is dead, a vision is dead, a program is dead and by conclusion; all the destinies attached are dead.
God does not embark on useless enterprise. Satan and his agents can collude together to want to pollute God’s intention, but it’s your duty to assure that what God want you to do is done.
God has a purpose for every life that He has allowed to come into this world.
The purpose may be delayed like that of Abraham, it might be under threat like Nehemiah’s project to build the wall of Jerusalem; but there is still a purpose which cannot be killed unless you allow it. Meaning nobody can kill your destiny without your permission. This is a very serious matter, and I want you to understand this. I want you to understand.
There is a prayer God taught me and I have been praying for years, and with all the violence you can gather; I want you to pray that prayer.
You will see that I call it often and often and often:
Can you right up your right hand to the heavenlies:
*===> Powers assigned to rubbish my destiny, you’re a liar; die in the name of Jesus!*
John the Baptist, he had a name and a ministry; even before he was born. His blue print was made available before they even conceived him. It shows you how God plans our lives. That is why the question, as to what purpose you are born must be answered as early as possible in your life. You need to shout to the Lord: _‘show me my divine blue print’_. His name, his ministry, his activities were already planned out even before he was conceived.
*The big question is this:*
– Do you know your own?
– What is it that has been written in the records of heaven concerning you, before you were even born?
– Is that not why you find out that things are not working the way they should work?
– Is that not why you are finding difficulties in things you’re doing because those things are not what you’re suppose to be doing anyway?
– Why are you sitting for another man’s examinations when you don’t even know the questions?
John the Baptist had a ministry to God and to men, he was to prepare the way of the Lord. The parents had a role to play for John the Baptist to fulfill his ministry. There were things that John the Baptist should not do in his life, those things were not consistent to the greatness to which he was called.
For example: if
1. He was not suppose to drink wine or strong drink. You don’t mix wine and alcohol with the Holy Spirit, this is a serious matter.
Meaning that, if the plan of God for your life as written: _‘this woman is coming into the world, she would be great, she will do wonders; but she must never put a fake hair on her head’. ‘She must never put any incision on her body’_, that has been written down; but you did not know. So your funny parents or ignorant parents, they bought you your first wig.
Then, they were putting incisions on your head; although you’re in the pattern of greatness God has put you, but the rule that is consistent with that greatness has been broken either consciously or unconsciously or ignorantly. This is why we need to prayers. But the only thing some people need is mercy of God and prayers, because they have been distorted so much from the pattern that they came with. They were already born into a deficit to start with.
Can you raise up your right hand again, shout this word as it is a powerful word:
*===>Power of restoration, overshadow my life in the name of Jesus!*
Samson learnt that lesson bitterly. Now imagine how many would have been disappointed had John the Baptist or his mother failed in their part of the deal. If John the Baptist had killed himself or drank wine, do you see how many would have perished. Do you now realized how many people perish because the man of God or the woman of God sent to them did not reach them.
Beloved, mind what you do to yourself. Don’t let modern gospel deceive you. Those people that are saying don’t do this, don’t do that; some people say that ‘ha, they are too strict’. You might be about to kill a Jeremiah before he manifest in your life, then it will not be a Jeremiah alone that was killed; a whole plan of God have been devastated. A whole gift of God to mankind will have been destroyed in transit.
Many destinies are in transition period, and the owners must be careful what they do. God gave a man a plan: _‘you’re coming to the world, but for you to succeed, you can marry only one wife, and you cannot sleep with any woman until you marry her’_. That was the plan consistent with the greatness of the man, the devil knew that plan. So, from university, he became the handsome man and he just find girls all over the place, and he was boasting that girls were following him; not knowing that practically, he was just killing his greatness. This is a serious matter and I want you to understand. A lot of young men have destroyed themselves technically.
The story of 3 girls in university of Ibadan, shared by Daddy G.O:
Close to 20 years ago, I was in university of Ibadan for a student crusade. As the crusade was going to end that day, there was a word of knowledge: _‘that there are three ladies here, you have been sent to the campus to destroy. You need to come out now, so that I can pray with you, if not; 7 days after this crusade, all three of you will die’!_ The place was as silent as grave. I counted till 1-7, no one came out and we closed the service and I left.
That was on Sunday evening. By Monday morning when I got here, three ladies from the university of Ibadan were waiting for me here, they said they wanted to see me. ‘You were in the campus yesterday, you were in the campus yesterday’; they stressed. They came in, I said ‘yes’; they said ‘excuse me sir, did you remember the word of knowledge’; I don’t remember those things mostly. They now told me, ‘I said yes I remember’, they said ‘we are the ladies’.
Then I said ‘why didn’t you come out the time I announced that you should come out’, they said ‘we were scared and we were ashamed; and we were afraid that they may lynch us if we come out like that’.
I now asked them what they wanted to do now, they said ‘we want to repent and we want to go for deliverance’. I said ‘that’s fine’. They said ‘but sir, we need to hand over this small pot over to you’.
One of them put her hand in the bag and brought out this small black pot, there was black liquid inside. I said ‘what is it’, they said ‘that is the semen of the men we have been collecting in the campus, anybody whose sperm is here; (I am going to use their exact words) he is finished’!
So, if you have slept with any of them; and you went to U.I, may be that’s why things are finished. It is only prayer of restoration that can help such people.
Many destinies are in transition, the owners must be careful what they do. A little mistake, and the internal Jeremiah is dead. There is something only you can do in this life, that nobody else can do it. There is a problem only you can solve, no one else can solve it. There is an assignment which God has set aside for you.
Every thing God created was created to solve a problem. When God created light, it was to solve the problem of darkness. When God crated water, it was to solve the problem of hunger and thirst. There is an appointed place for you in life.
There are two ladies in the Bible, one was called ‘Leah’; and another was called ‘Rachael’. Rachael was extremely beautiful, Leah was ugly and not regarded, they looked down on Leah; they called her names. Both of them were wives to Jacob. Though Leah was not regarded, but out of that Leah, that woman that they didn’t respect that was ugly, out of her came the ten pillars of Israel!
Supposing Leah had killed herself out of frustration, or she allowed the enemy to kill her and she just gave up because of the way people were reacting to her and looking at her (what if she gave up); ten pillars of Israel would have gone!
I have to stop her today, we continue next time, rise to your feet and all eyes closed.
During Ministration prayers by Daddy G.O:
1. Powers assigned to reinvent my destiny for evil, die in the name of Jesus!
2. Power assigned to force me to accept evil, you’re a liar; die in the name of Jesus!
3. Powers assigned to rubbish my destiny, you’re a liar; die in the name of Jesus!
4. Powers of restoration, overshadow my life in the name of Jesus!
After Ministration prayers by Daddy G.O:
Obviously, you can see that we have serious work to do. Obviously, you can see that the prayer of _‘O God, show me who I am’_ has to continue. Until you begin to see things, don’t stop; until God begins o show you things. If God shows you things that you don’t understand, you can write us a letter or see the ministers. The prayers of this morning, they are not gentle men’s prayer at all. The way you’re going to know whether you’re really praying here this morning is when you’re sweating with the prayers, it is a gethsemane kind of prayers. Can you close your eyes now and shout this loud and clear:
5. Covenants behind the battles fighting me, break by the blood of Jesus in the name of Jesus!
6. Wicked problems assigned to waste my days, backfire in the name of Jesus!
Plenty of prayers to pray within a few minutes we’ve got. But if you’re not going to pray them aggressively, it’s better not to pray them at all. From what I have told you this morning, you can see that life is deep, and you can see why there is so much confusion in our world.
Somebody who is not meant to be a politician has decided to be a politician, somebody who is not suppose to be a pastor has decided to be a pastor. Somebody who is not suppose to drink any alcohol has decided to be drinking alcohol. Somebody who is suppose to marry only one wife, has decided to marry plenty wives already. Somebody who is not suppose to practice sorcery, divination, charms and fetish things is doing it; thereby contesting with their own destinies and hurting their own destinies. Can you shout this with boiling faith in your mouth, cry to the Lord from your heart:
7. O God, if I am the one fighting my destiny, deliver me in the name of Jesus!
8. Battles assigned to damage my happiness, you’re a liar; die in the name of Jesus!
9. The file of my life in the graveyard, catch fire in the name of Jesus!
10. Shadow of death assigned against my star, expire in the name of Jesus!
11. O God, if I have missed my way; connect me now in the name of Jesus!
12. Troubles that walk by day and night, I’m not your candidate; die in the name of Jesus!
